Reciprocity.
Although, to all appearance, it
would be w reasonable to expeot dig-
interested political aotion (rom a
boodler as anything approaching a
concession to Canada from the United States senate at present, there
can be no doubt that a great deal of
attention is being paid to the relations between the two countries bjr
the peoples of both, and that the
opinion is gaining ground that not
retaliation bot reciprocity will be,
the end bf the fisheries dispute. In
the face of the facts that congress
has, by very large majorities, passed
a retaliatory bill against Canada,
and that the Canadian people have
returned to power a government
that professes to have made Canada
prosperous by erecting barriers
against trade, especially with tiie
United States, the present does not
appear to be an opportune time for
discussion. If the Americans, are
determined to fight for, rather than
to purchase from Canadians, the
fishing privileges which they want,
and if the Canadians are as prosperous and happy under the national
policy's benign influence ss the
Industrial League claims the
result of the eleotion proves
them to be, there can be little desire
for reciprocity on the part of either
people. Tbe Butterworth bill, which
was introduced into the house of
representatives only to be treated
with indifference, is, it appears to
us, the only feasible proposition by
which reciprocity can be furthered
at the present time, and although
the scope of the bill itself was wide
enough, the mere fact of its being
proposed to indifferent representatives of the people is not a very important one. if, however, the people of the United States, in spite of
the senate and retaliation, are asking themselves whether trade with
Canadians is not as desirable at
least as trade with th; Sandwich
Islanders; and if, in spite of the
Industrial League, Canadians are
not satisfied with the unnatural barriers which hare been raised against
trade and commerce between themselves and their neighbon to the
south, this dissatisfaction with this
condition of things is an excellent
basis, not only for the discussion,
but for action looking to complete
reciprocity. That complete recipro
city would be of great benefit to the.
vast majority of the people of both
countries no reasonable man can
deny. The removal of the barrier
to trade that has been raised across
this continent, thus fairly permitting the products of the north to
reach their natural market in the
south and vice versa, would work a
vast change for the better in the
condition of the people of America.
That thore are some classes of the
community which would be deprived
to some degree of the power given
them by the present tariff to tax
the people there can be no doubt,
and these classes can be depended
upon to oppose reciprocity fiercely.
The advantages of a free market in
the United States to the nine hundred thousand Canadians who earn
their living by agricultural and commercial pursuits are so great that
they will hardly be inclined to vote
against their own bread and butter
to benefit the "Industrial League."
The national policy was brought
into favor in Canada by representing it as a means of ending what
was called jug handled free trade.
Canada would never induce the
United States to remove their duties,
it was said, until she bad high duties which she could remove in compensation. If the Americans would
consent to an interchange of natural
products, the Industrial League
might induce the people to accept
such a compromise, but there is not
the slightest likelihood of the Americans consenting to sny such arrange*
ment They are as fully convinced
as Canadians are that it is better to
sell either cheap or dear than to
buy cheap, and they want markets
for their manufactures. The Butterworth bill, simply providing that
the removal of a Canadian duty on
an article of American production
shall void the American duty on
the same article of Canadian production, could be made, by the passage of a precisely similar measure
by the Canadian parliament, the
basis of a perfectly simple and
satisfactory reciprocity treaty. —

THE COERCION RILL.
London, Mar. 24.—In the house of
commons this evoning the debato on
the motion for the urgenoy for the
coercion bill wns resumed by Gladstone. He referred to the unprecedented, position of the house, which
bad already sat two months, during
which, he said, iti independent initiative had beeu suppressed. Esen
now conservatives were exultant over
the prospects of passing the , motion
and forcing the house to absolutely
surrender its whole time until a bill
of extremely severe character hsd
beon enrried. fie had seen more parliamentary life than any other man in
tho house, but he never knew of so
grave a state of affairs. The yoke
thus put on the neck of the house
would not be bomo patiently. The
position ef affaira .was very different
from thst when the coercion bill of
1881 passed the house. The govern*
ment had contracts which should not
be broken yet. Balfour, whilo preaching the doctrine of the sanctity of
contracts, waa going to introduce a
bill breiking the leasehold contracts
adjusted under tho land net of '82.
He trusted the people uf England
would seo the liberals united in op*
posing this alleged measure of tho last
atsge and the liberal members would
ring that justice of reason airainst a
government which, after 80 years experience, was preparing under the
name of a statute of parliament to
strike a fresh blow at the life and happiness of Ireland and at the prosperity, contentment and unity nf tbe
Irish.
PROLONGED TDK SESSION.
Gladstone's denunciation of tlie use
of tho cloture in ccrtnii. debates on tho
urgency of the motion nnd coercion
bill forced tho govornment to reconsider the subject. Tho ministry decided to permit tho prolongation of
the discussion but will insist on the
houso foregoing its Easter vacation.
The coercion bill will be passed bofore
tho holidays. A section of the I Had-
Etonian party, discontented with a
bnlf'Voiled approval of tho plan of
campaign uf the English homo-rulers
and Parnellites, and delighted with
tho speech of Balfour iu introducing
the coercion bill, will respond tu Gladstone's challenge to thu government to
state what crime there is thnt justifies
the adoption of the measure.
CHAMBERLAIN TALKS.
London, Mar. 25.— In the house
yesterday Chamberlain condemned the
attitude of'thoso who, without knowing tho nature uf the bill, refused to
give an opportunity to introduce or
discuss it. Who waa it told them Ireland blocked tho way '! This being
admitted, why refuse the urgency for
the bill i Experience showed that
former remedial measures tailed. The
condition of Irelau.l wns ns bad as
ever. Admitting thc piv ii.us coercive
acts had not removed lliu discontent,
they could act in the maintenance of
law and order. Admitting ihe present
disorder is only limited, that is no
rossun why it should bo allowed to
oontinue. He agreed it waa the most
urgent duty of tho government to deal
with tho land question at the earliest
moment. He thought the government unjustly accused, beoause it
eould not be expected to develop
them. He hoped tho government
would press a remedial bill in the
house nf lords, so it could pus the
house of commons before the mimes
bill. If the land bill made undue de.
mand on British taxpayers he should
himself protest. Thero ought to b*e
no difficulty in dealing with the whole
ot this great subject during the present session. He believed nobody
would deny that secret societies existed in Ireland.   It was still his own
opinion that no romedisl ran
would have any cbance of s.oosm
whilo the National Lesgu.wa.su-
promo. (Ministerial cheers.) Th*
government would not fulfil their duty
if they failed to protect people in their
rights. He concluded by quoting
frum speeches by Gladstone and Morley to show both in harmony with the
course now pursued by the government, which be trusted the majority
of the people approved.
HEALEV TALKS,
Healey, remarking he just heard
for tbo first timo the real object of the
crimes bill, said be would be delighted
if the government would suppress the
National League, bsoause this wnsM
relieve the Irish members of a great
respunSkWlity, and the people would
then oonJwawba agrarian mo.esa.nt
for themselves. "Suppress the
League by all means," said Healey;
" even stop tho public speaking; but
in the latter event Parnellites will
leave to the government responsibility
for the blood that might be spilled."'
Healey wanted Chamberlain to explain how parliament could pass any
laud purchase bill without involving
imperial oredit. Smith expressed the
hope that the debate would be finished
to-morrow. Parnell said he hepad it
would not be undentood the Irish
members assented to tbis suggestion.
OVERDUE STEAMER.
New York, Mar. 26.—The steamship Scotia, whioh left Marseille. Feb.
20, Naples Feb. 23, and paased Gibraltar on the 27th, for New York, is
now about ten days overdue. The
took on board 834 passengers off the
steamship Burgundla, which collided
with the ironclad Italia and waa
beached to prevent her sinking, making her total number of passengers
about 1,000. Apprehension for har
safety has been excited. The steamship Dorian, of the Anchor line, from
Mediterranean ports, also passed Gibraltar Feb. 27th, but as she is a Ins

Spreading (Inl.
It is understood that the government
has under consideration the question
of the organisation of a line of steam-
ers between the maritime provinces of
Canada and the West India Islands,
with a view to the extension of the
trado nnd commerce of the Dominion
in thut direction. By the establishment of such a lino of steamers Canada
would be enabled to share to a greater
extent in tho benefits to bo derived
from tho recent treaty between Great
Britain and Spain. On the other side
of tho continent the work is also in
progress. The Canadian Pacific railway company haa completed arrangements for the running of a line of
steamers between its terminus st Vancouver and Japan and Hong Kong.
Tho company has, to begin with, chartered tho Cunard line steamer* Par-
thin, Abyssinia and Batavia, Theae
bunts have lately received new triple
expansion engines, securing increased
speed, with good cabin aooommodation
for forty to sixty passengers, and
freight capacity for 2,600 to 3,000
tons. In the course of time —
and not n very long time, at Uie' present rate of moving—Canada will nave
such connections as will enable her to
sell what sho hu to sell, and to buy
what she may hnve to buy, even if the
fish pirates of New England chance to
have things their own way, and succeed in inducing the United State*
governmont to prohibit trade with
Canada. Canada is moving fast thu*
days, aud is beginning to take th*
placo in the world that ahe is entitled
to occupy.■•- Hamilton Spectator.

Pull returns have not yet beon
received from tho Northwest Territories elections, but tliere is no room
to doubt that four Conservative representatives have beon returned.
The successful candidates arc as follows: For Alberta, Davis; for Saskatchewan, MoDowall; for West
Assiniboio, Davin; for East Assini-
boia, Ferley, The defeat of Hon.
Mr. Laird, ex-lieutenant governor
of the territory, is to beTegretted.
Mr. Laird was a most valuable man,
and an honest man too; but tho fact
of his residing out of the territories
undoubtedly helped to defeat him.
Nicholas Flood Davin has succeeded
at last, and may now toll the gaping
house of commons what he knows
about the Chinese in British Columbia.
The Columbian calls tho News a_
"disgraceful paper," because it dares
to attack certain .members of the
government. — Vancouver News.
Now, the Columbian did nothing
of the kind. It censured the News
not because it dared to attack certain members of the government,
but because it declared a largo majority of the members of tho legislature "degraded banditti." The
crime committed by these gentlemen
was that of voting against a men
sure whioh, we presume, they believed to be contrary to the public
interest. While onr colomporary
claims the right, therefore, of criticising members of the honso for
their votes, ho ought to accord to
them the right of voting ns their
t mny suggest.
No doubt lawyers nnd judges are
very wise people, and understand
both the laws and tho principles of
right much better than other poople:
nevertheless, the decisions of tho
courts are sometimes wonderful
when put beside plain facts. Not
long ago a man named Fierce, who
had a wife in Toronto, went to the
United States and married another.
Returning to Toronto he was accused and convicted of bigamy, But
the oourt of appeal held that the
conviction was not good because
Fierce did not go to tho United
States "with the intention to commit a breach of the law,' Tho intention having apparently been developed uftff 'leaving Canada, nnd
the offense having been committed
beyond the jurisdiction of Canadian
courts, the man was innocent of
any breach of Canadian law.
In the east the contest between
public rights and corporation rights
goes on. Lately the court of railway commissioners for Massachusetts, in granting nn order compelling a railway company to establish
a station where the company had
refused to put one, made this declaration : "Our supreme court has said
more than once that a railway corporation is erected mainly for the
public benefit, and only incidentally
for its own profit, And, because
directors are liable to take a wrong
view of their duties, the state reserves full control, and delegates to
its agents the power of supervising
the operation of these corporations."
This doctrine prevails now through
the United States very extensively,
but in Canada we do not scorn to
have arrived yet at such a just and
sensible apprehension of the relations between the railways and the
public interest.
Our cotemporary of the Colonist
devotes his editorial columns of
Thursday entirely to the question of
eduoation, especially to high schools.
Most of our cotemporary's remarks
seem to us thrown away in as much
as they are aimed at those who re
gard popular education as an unnecessary accomplishment' Wc apprehend that there are vory few, if
there are any, in this country who
hold suoh an opinion. The licnclits
of education are patent to all. lint
our cotemporary likewise addresses
himself to those who, ho thinks,
wish to abolish high schools in ihis
province. There mny be a good
many under the impression that
high schools ought to be abolished;
but there are more who, while anxious to have the schools retained,
think they ought to receive no part
of the publio revenue. It is to this
class really that the Colonist should
hav* addressed itself. It is undoubtedly true that every facility
should be afforded for obtaining a
thorough education, but it cannot be
the duty of the state to furnish edu
cation free in all departments and
in all degrees. If it is, then colleges, both in arts and medicine,
ought to be established and supported wholly by the state. It is a
popular opinion that it is the duty
of the atate to provide facilities for
• common school eduoation, and
here the publio generally draw the
line. The Cobmist draws it higher,
and think* high schools should also
be supported wholly by the state
We think not; but we are in favor
of state aid to high schools in such
proportion as to enlist for them tho
earnest co-operation of tho municipal organisation*. It would be a
great calamity if the high schools
wero abolished, but the province is
not able to provide for both public
school and high school unless tlio
sources of revenue have been considerably increased.

On the cvonlns o< June 18, 1888,
George Wellington, nn Indiana farmer,
had il iratbcrliift ot friends at hie house.
He wns it man ii years of age, and of
robust health, and on this evening lt
wa* r.otlcod thnt he was ln particularly
good spirits.
A Her tbo miosti had departed he
remarked to liis wife that he felt more
liko singing nnd dancing than going to
bed. Tbey retired about half-past 11
o'olock, n.nd Bhe was asleep before midnight.
Tlie farmer was always out of bed at
0 o'clook, but on the morning following
tho party th» wife awokeat 0 and found
him still sleeping. When she attempted
to arouse him she discovered that he
was dead.
A doctor was sant for, and he arrived
ln the course ot an hour to pronounce it
a case of heart dlssass. Ho said the
man had been dead -.lirei hours when
the wife awjke. The undertaker came
and prepared the bod) for burial.
It was remarked that the corpse retained a life-like appearance, and that
none ot the limbs grew rigid, but the
two other physiolans called in vigorously
combatted the Idea that he was In a
trance and might be restored to life.
Neverthele a, the wife and sons had a
secrot hope that death hod not realty
come to him, und the funeral was put
two davs ahoad. *•
The burial was to take plaoe In a
country graveyard, and most of the
vehicles gathering at thehouse belonged
to farmers The usual oeremonles took
place over the dead, and the coffin was
brought out and placed In the hearso.
While the procession was forming, a
team attached to an empty wagon came
down the road, running away. The
wngon collided with the hearse and the
latter vehicle was upset and the ooffln
Dung out. Four or five men ran to pick
lt up, but before a hand had touched
it, a voice waa heard, saying:
" For Clod's sake, let me out of
thi-. i"
Ths people at first moved back in
rffrL'ht, but as the voice continued to
fl.Mtvss them the oo!r.n was righted and
opet: i and Wellington was found
fcir'-Tlmpto get out.
With a. Ilt'.'.a us-Jstance he pulled hlm-
sof out of the ton and walked Into the
hou e and eat down in a ohalr. In half
an hour he had hl-> clothes on and was
moving around among the amazed
people, to whom be related this experience.
11 diil not fall asleep until somo time
after lnldu'ght. When I awoke the
dock wa • striking 5. I made a move to
get out of bod, but, to my great amazement, I could stir nelthor hand nor foot.
1 had the full uso of my ears, but I
ould not open my eyes.
" I argued at first thnt I was not yet
wide awako, but when my wife shook me
and called me by name and I could not
respond by even moving on eyelid, I became satisfied that I was ln a trance.
My mind was never clearer, and my
hearing was painfully acute.
" I made effort after effort to throw off
the great weight whioh seemed to be
holding me down, but I could not bend
a toe or crook a finger. However, it
wu only alter the doctor had pronounced
me dead that I felt any alarm.
"Cp to that time it had seemed as If
I could soon manage to get rid of the
vfelght. Had a pistol been fired In the
room I am sura the apell would have
been broken. After the doctor's ultimatum I felt sure that I should be burled
»*tv«t
f But was I alive? Allot a sudden
this i-ii-ny flashed across my brain, and
I was troubled more than I oan tell you.
A* I had never died before how was I
to know the sensations? Oould tho dead
hear and think? Was the mind of a
corpse In active operation? It was a
prob'em I oould not solve.
" Not a word was spoken near ma
which I did not catch ud fully understand.* When the two other doctors
pronounced me dead I made up my mind
that 1 was. dead, and that the end had
pome. I had been taught to believe that
the spirit of the dead ascended to
heaven, aid that the dead were dead ln
mind as well aa body. It waa a base
deception. I felt Indignant that lt
was so.
"Asanlnstanceoftheaoutenessofmy
hearing, let me explain that after I waa
placed ln the ooffln the receptacle waa
moved over to an open window ln tha
parlor, whore lt was supported on saw-
hones.
'i Two of my neighbors took seats on
awBgon box In the barnyard, fully SOO
feet away, and for an hour conversed of
my death ln ordinary tones ot voloe. I
did not miss one single word of tha
conversation, as both afterward admitted.
"I oould hear every tick ot tha
kitchen dock, aud mt-oh of t|ia conversation of the women la'tha upstairs
rooms.
"On the night previous to the funeral,'
about half-past ten o'clook, and while
the two men sitting up with the corpse
were reading, I heard two men climb
the fenee Into the barnyard, cross the
yard, and enter the barn. After a few
minutes they came out, and I heard the
Jingle of something oarried by one of
tbo pair, | could not make out what
was going on, but learned afterward.
The two men stole a horse from a flolq
opposite my barn, and they entered my>
premises In search of a bridle.
" I heard the people assemble for tho
funeral, and as I caught a word from
thi- one or that one I identlflod them by
i.ametomy-elt I listened olosely to
the sermon, but when the minister spoke
of mo I could not tako lt as personal. It
waa as U the name and person belonged
to some one I had known yean
beforo
" 1 knew when I waa oarried put and
rlaood in the hearse, and 1 am oertaln
hat I heard the clatter ot the team running away before anybody sighted them.
When the people began to call out ln
nlTrlght I felt that same fear ot being
hur- lhat any live man does, I heard
them trying to back the hearse out ot
the way to let the team go by, but they
were nut quick enough,
" As the collision oame my eyes
opened and my speech was restored,
and trom that moment I waa all
right"

OTO COSTLIEST LUXURIES.
Vl'lial llio Figures of tho Internal Bovemio
Teaoli iu ltegard to Onr Drink anil
Siuolu* BUI.
It will be interesting to all roadorsto
Iraow that, while demagogues continue
to complain about the sufferings of
labor, the consumption of luxuries in
almost ovory particular Is greater than
tt was one or two years ago, and in most
classes of expenditure greater than, lt
ovor was in tho times called most pros.
perouB. Tho dry figures of the Internal
revenue report, when examined, yield
this and much othor information.
It appears that the consumption of
beer Increased 1,624,980 barrels. The
consumption ln IMS was greater than
ever before, aad, adding the olllclally
reported increase, it appears that no less
than 042,000.000 gallons of beer were
consumed last year. Tho population ls
over 00,000 000, but the consumption for
tbo yeur ending Juno 30must be reckoned
upon thu mean population tor that year,
which was about 00,257,000. Ou that
basis the consumption of beer appears to
have been 10.83 gallons for evory inhabitant, babies Included.
Considering that a largo part ot tho
population doos not consumo boor at
all, this seems to imply an enormous
consumption to those who dn, and yet,
sinco those who consumo beor at all
cortalnly consumo as much as hnlf a
pint daily, tbey would at that nitu get
rldot 23 gallons eaoh. Apparently tne
consumption Is about equivalent to
a pint a day for half the adult population.
The Increase In the consumption ot
whiskey was 1,000,108 gallons, which
makes the consumption for the year
70,763,010 gallons, or 1.10 gallons per
capita. That ls much moro than was
consumed in tho years ot depression, the
fiscal years 1878 and 1870, when the tax
was the same that it is now, but lt is
much below the consumption of 1883 or
1884, when the quantity was 1.41 and 142
gallons per capita.
The increase ln the consumption of
beer, whioh has risen from seven gallons
to nrarly oleven gallons since 18T8-0,
accounts for some diminution in tho use
of spirits, nnd probably tho rapid spread
of prohibition at tho South has alfectod
the consumption still more,
Fittoon yoars ago, when the tax was
only 60 conts per gallon, the consumption ranged betweon 11-2 and two gallons percajita.
Tho incroaso in consumption of tobacco in various forms hns beon remarkablo, but especially in Iho loast Iioalthy
of all forms. Snuff-using, it may be
remarked, is on the deolino; 105,747
pounds less wore usodjast year than the
-car bofore. But tlio consumption of
manufactured tohucco, for smoking and
cliowing, l.iei'crisod 11,010.574 pounds,
reaching r.il,023,cil3 pounds, or 3.22
pound-, pur eu, [to, which is considerably
In ixcess of tho consumption In any
previous year.
Trior to 1870 the quantity consumed
was from 1 to 2 pounds; in 1870 it roso
to 2.38, nnd until 1870 averaged about
2.60; thon It roso In 1880 to 2.75, in 1882
to 3.06, and bns been abovo 3 pounds
evor sinco. But tho increaso in this
form of tobavco would havo been greator
but for tlio increase in tiio consumption
of cigars and cigarettes.
The number of cigars oonsumed increased hist year 151,025,855, making
a total consumption of 3,510,372,530, or
50.2 por capita.
Just twenty years ago the consumption
was 10 2 yearly | in 1870 it rose to 30;
In 1875 to 43.0, and then declined a little
with the bard times to 40.5 ir, 1878,
but In 1881 It rqse to 52.0, reaching 01.5
In 1884, aiid declined to 68.2 in 1885, but
has now risen again to 59.2.
Thus tlio co'sumptlcn ls a sh-.de
lowor than the greatest yet recorded,
and there le some reason to dctibf
whother this small decrease betokens
the pressure of hard times, becauso the
consumption of cigarettes has greatly
lncrensod. Last yonr alono tbo increa-e
was 252,212,112, or about 25 per cent.,
making 1,310,550,512 In all, or 22.1 per
capita.
In 1805 there was a small consumption, but practically none officially recorded In tho years 1100-1809. fn 1870
it roso to .4 per  capita, and In 1876,
Just ten years ago, rose to 1.7 per capita,
lut that was only the beginning; in
1880 it hod risen to 8.2 per capita, Iq
1884 to 16.1, in 1885 to 18.3, and now
averages 22.1 per capita.
Of the Iniiucnceofthls change upon
health doubtless physicians may have
something to say, but a considerable Increase In the use ot tobacco lu other
forms ts evidently prevented by tho
manufacture and use of cigarette.',
whether that change be beneficial to
health or not.
It remains to add that, supposing
cigar. to average only Ave cents eaoh,
and cigarettes twenty cents a package,
tobacco a dollar per pound In retail
forms, beer five cents a glass, and
spirits five cents for half a gill, prices
which nre cortalnly not as high as those
pall by most consumers, the oost of
th-ise articles to the people of this
country ls over$l,189,0O0,000, .or $19.82
for every Inhabitant. This burden Is
brrne by about 20,000,000 wage-corners,
however, nnd for them lt averages $50.40
yvrly.
A1 live money that trado unions have
ailed or ever will add to the wages of
labor wll| pot equal half the sum spent
lost year, mainly by working people, In
the eon umption of liquor alone, which
cost thom muoh over $800,000,l)00.-|N.

Limited." The concern has been for
uearly a year'owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of Now Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. Tho object of
tho new company is to continue the publication of the Bkiti.sh Couimdi/in newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual Interest It will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. There will he no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the estab*
lishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbia!! will eontinse to be entirely independent In both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote Itself
to the advancement of such schemes aa
may bo considered in the public interest.
Tho concern is now entirely separate from
any othor business, the book and
stationery establishment in this otty
having been taken over, by Mr. T. R.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
ln his own name and for his own benefit.
It Is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained In this oity, and
the new company asks for publie patronage on the ground that lt ls engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks thst the Columbian bs judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as Its polioy Is
enconsistt with its professions. In consequence of this business ohange all ae*
counts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that'the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and

A University por B. C—- Secretary
Hayward, Mr. H. F. Heisterman aud
Dr. MHne, of the Victoria school
board, had an interview with tho provincial socrotary, when they .urged tho
importance and necessity, iu tho interest of education, of the establishment of a provincial university, Tho
minister received tho deputation cordially and promised that the project
would receive tho early attontion of
the government, so thnt thc scheme,
if favorably entertained, might be laid
before the house at tho noxt session.
Bs ecu Kit's Successor.—It is stated
that Bev. Dr. Wild, of Toronto, hss
been asked informally if he would accept the pastorate of Plymouth ohuroh.
The doctor declines to be interviewed
on the subject, but gives it as liis
opinion that Beeoher's successor will
Srobably be Dr. Parker, cf London,
England. He declares that there is
no preacher in the United States able
to succeed to the pastorate of Plymouth. Dr, Wild is a very eccentric
preacher, of great originality, and very
popular In Toronto. 01s church
there is alwaya crowded.
Abduction or Murder.—The Nnnaimo /res Prtss reports the arrest of
tfro Ohinamen on suspicion of murdering ft Chinawoman. It appears that
a Chinese married woman left her hus-
bftnd at Victoria about forty days ngo,
bedecked lavishly with valuable jewelry. The husband and friends instituted a search and ion Monday received information that a woman answering the description was cohabiting
with two Chinamen near Salt Spring
Island. The arrested Celestials say
tho woman haa gone to Tacoma, but
the haibfmd and friends suspect that
these two Ohinamen have made away
with the woman lor the purpose of
getting possession of her valuablo jow-
•hy and trinket*.

Delayed Malls and Passengers
at Length Landed on the
Coast.
INCIDENTS OF THE TRIP AND DELAY.
Two trains arrivod in Port Moody
this morning with delayed mails and
passengers aboard. The first arrived
about 2:30 this morning and the seo*
ond about four hours later. About
380 passengers came through as well
as all delayed mails up to the 17th
inst This would loave about a week's
mail yet behind, which is expected to
arrive early tliis evening, as well as
the remainder of tho passongers. The
Westminstor contingent, nearly 60 in
number, were brought in immediately
on their arrival at the junction. All
the passengers Bpeak well of the company nnd tho convenience and accommodation rendered them by the company. One passenger, in relating his
experience, says: "I left Toronto the
1st of March having a through ticket
to Frisco. On arriving at Winnipeg
we were delayed three days by a serious washout which had occurred near
Regina. We were again delayed at
Mooso Jaw and Swift Current by snow
drifts. It was not until we reaohed
Calgary that we learned that a serious
blockade existed in the mountains.
We remained one week at Calgary
when the company transferred us to
Banff. Here we passed our time very
pleasantly. Many of the passengers,
on learning that the blockade might
lost some tune, returned to Winipeg,
the company granting them ps&ses
back. While at Banff an avalanche
descended from one of the adjacent
mountains, and the concussion it ere*
ated in the air burst in the windows
and doors of the hotel. Shortly afterward another one came down and
covered up our hotel, and we had to
dig our way out. We left Banff Tuesday morning and came to what ia
known as the loop, when we were
again obliged te wait six hours in consequence of a fresh slide." Another
passenger relates being delayed three
weeks in Donald. He says the passengers were scattered all the way
from Donald to Winnipeg, and that
altogether there must have been 700,
Ono of the slides at the loop was 1,000
ft, long and over 30 ft. d-aep. Six
hundred men were employed in clearing it. Altogether from 3,000 to
4,000 men were engaged in keeping
the road in running order. The side
tracks at Donald are full of freight.
Calgary was full of passengers. It
wns a difficult thing to obtain a bed.
The company allowed as far as possible, the use of the dining and Pullman
curs to tho passengers, free of charge.
Another passenger relates being stopped in a deep snow cut and having
to wait six hours. "I felt decidedly
uncomfortable, I can tell you. On
each side of the train the snow was
ever 20 feet deep and it looked as if it
might topple over any minute and
completely bury us. 1 was 'very glad
when the ordors came to proceed."

A New York despatch sayB: An immense iron combination is being formed here which aims at nothing short of
owning and controlling all the known
valuablo iron deposits of Canada, now
being ascertained to be the richest iron
country -in the world. The Central
Ontario .* railway, which runs from
Trenton on Lake Ontario through the
centre of Canada, and all the iron interest connected with it are to form
part of the scheme.' The road is
to be extended one hundred und fifty
miles through the heart of the iron

ten millions, more than two-thirds of
•which is already pledged. The syndicate, it is said, will own more than a
hundred different properties at various
points in Canada, and a mineral development even greater than that nn
