Cuban Kami ita.
Havanna, April 23.—After several
months of comparative tranquility as to
bandits, kidnappers and blackmailers,
the people have just been startled by
the unexpected announcement of the
sudden appearance in the Eastern part
of Cuba of a party of about twenty or
more colored men well armed and
mounted under command of Calixto
Garcia, one of the black chiefs iu the
last insurrection. This party, ut times
iu a band and at others divided into
groups of 5 to 8 men, have attacked and
plundered all establishments on the
road and in smaller towns and ransomed
heavily the owners of all sugar and
coffee plantations they could get bold of,
wounding nnd murdering several people
who refused to yield to their pretensions.
All trains that nave lately arrived at St.
Jago De Cuba came in crowded witli
country people, hastily seeking for
refuge in town against the exactions
and cruelties committed by the men belonging to the baud, whose number is
said to .bo daily increasing.
The New China Line.
New Yobk, April 23.—George Gould,
president of the Pacific Mail Steamship
Company, said to-day that he was heartily in favor of establishing a steamship
line between Tacoma and Chinese and
Japanese ports. '-'Some one will soon
occupy the territory," said he, "and I
see no reason why this company should
not be first in the field. We could take
two vessels from our own San Francisco
line nnd put them immediately on the
new route. There is no intention of
making Tacoma the sole port of the
company on the Pacific, but thero is no
reason why San Francisco should be
the only one. It is plain enough to see
why the railroads leading to San Francisco Bhould oppose the new line. While
I am thoroughly in favor of it, I can
only say that negotiations have not
been completed."
WiggliiH  KxpUiim.
Ottawa, April 23.—Professor Wiggins
said last night: "When I predicted tho
storm iu March, I said its planetary
origin would be proved by earthquakes
in the North Pacific and south of Europe,
which would follow on the storm and
this earthquake at Queen Charlotte's
Island is a verification of what I said.
Without doubt Vesuvius will be in serious action within three months. We
have yet to receive information of serious earthquakes in the Pacific Islands
and Japan. We can see at a glance that
there must have been heavy earthquakes
in the Pacific ocean, or in other words
in the aqueos hemisphere of the earth by
the great floods which are reported from
Australia."	
Ottawa Note*
Ottawa, April 22.—Mr. John Charlton, M.P., the champion of the Equal
Righters, seems determined not to let
the Jesuits' Estates question be quiet.
He gives notice of motion to-night of a
vote of censure upon the Government
because it submitted the Jesuits' question to the law officers of the Crown in
regarding its constitutionality rather
than to the Supreme Court of Canada,
thereby grossly insulting the Supremo
Court of Canada, nnd the Canadian
judiciary at large.
A banquet was given to Mr, Alonxo
Wright, M.P., in tlie House of Commons
by his fellow members. The occasion
was the 27th anuivetsary of his representation of Ottawa County. Speaker
Ouimet occupied the chair. The speakers wore Col. Prior, Messrs. Daly, Gil-
inour, Ross, Currau, Mitchell. Cargill,
Trow, Paterson (Essex), tanglier, Sutherland, ex-M,P,, Ferguson (Wetland),
Weldoii (Albert), Kenny and Montague.
Dominion Parliament,
Ottawa, April 22.—In the House of
Commons to-day General Laurie advocated the making of treaties with other
British colonies, with a view to the promotion of trade. The difficulty in the
way of making treaties with European
nations waB that those people already
had advantages in Canadian trade
through the most favored nation clause
In the treaties between them and Great
Britain, and with regard to the United
States he contended that reciprocity of
trade could be accomplished by accept-
ing annexation, which Canadians were
unwilling to do. Sir John Macdonald
stated that if these treaties could be
made ovor again with foreign countries,
Canada would bo given every advantage
by the Imperial Government. He
avoided the discussion of the general
question on tlie ground that it would
bring up the whole tariffquestion, which
Is already beforo tlie House on other
motions*
Sir John Macdonald gave his views on
the divorce question to-night in the
House. He looked with horror ou any
extension of the present Parliamentary
procedure which might authorise divorce
on any other grounds hut adultery. Ho
thought that the system in the United
States was tbe greatest social abuses of
the present day. Ho hoped that Canada
would adhere to the present system
which should be mnde as stringent ns
possible.
Tho Walker divorce case was the cause
of the Preraiur's comment. Mrs. Walker
asked for a separation because hor husband, who now lives in Brooklyn, left
his wife immediately after the ceremony.
The Senate grants the divorce but tbe
House of Commons to-night refused it
by giving it the six months' hoist.
Mr. Blake gives notice of a motion on
going into Committee of Supply, that
before an act is vetoed it shall he referred to a high judicial tribunal for an
expression of opinion.
The writ for the New Westminster
election was sent by mail to-night, It
is stated hero that Mr. Corbould's candidacy has the strong approval of the
Government.
In the House of Commons to-night the
Divorce Bill for the relief of Hugh Forbes
Keefer waB passed. All the Catholic
members voted against the Bill.
There was a lively discussion in the
Senate this afternoon over Inspector
Moylan's alleged attack on Senator Mclnnes' connection witli the British Columbia penitentiary. Senator Mclnnes
called Movlan a Judas Iscariot, a blackguard and a lubberly impudent Pharl
see. He said grave abuses existed ii.
tbe penitentiary. Hon. Mr. Abbott
claimed that Mr. Movlan had no right
to refer to Senator Mclnnes at all, and
the Government should promptly repress insolence to members of Parliament hy their employees. He will move
that he be summoned to the bar of the
House to answer for his conduct.
The Labor Question.
London, April 22.—In the House of
Commons this evening, Mr. George C.
Bartley, the member for North Islington, moved the appointment of a committee to inquire into the labor question.
In tlie course of the ensuing discussion
Mr. Bradlaugh fiercely attacked Mr. R.
Cunningham Graham, the member for
North West Lanarkshire, charging him
with inciting strife among the working
classes with tho result of reducing them
to the verge of starvation. The condition of the English laborer, Mr. Brad-
laugh contended, was favorable beyond
comparison with any othor European
workmen. Mr. Graham denounced Mr.
BradlaUgh'B statements as unfounded,
but declared ho would incite to violence
on the part of the working clusaes when
their condition should liecome sufficiently improved nnd they sufficiently powerful to promise their success. Subsequently Mr. Hartley withdrew his motion under the Clotme. The Government's motion annulling the motion of
Mr, O'Connor blocking further legislation on tho liquor question for the entire
session was carried by 189 to 19.
Imperial   Parliament.
London, April 22.—In moving the rejection of tho Irish Land Purchase Bill
in the House of Commons, Mr. Parnell
said thnt he welcomed Mr. Balfour as the
latest recruit to the ranks of land reformers. But while his associates and
himself accepted the action of the Government aB a recognition by it of rightfulness of tho principle of the land for
the people, they could not admit that the
present Bill offered a satisfactory solution of the question. The initial question was how far would the British taxpayers go iu lending the credit of the
nation to the Irish landlords? The experience had with Mr. Gladstone's Bill
of 1880, Mr. Parnell said, showed that
they would not be willing to go far
enough to settle the difficulty. The Bill,
he asserted, was simply intended to enable one-ninth of the owners of tlio soil,
and thnt one-ninth made up of absentee
landlords, to sell their property at exorbitant prices, while their poorer resident
brethren were left in the lurch. Mr. Parnell said he objected to the Bill because
it did not carry out what it proposed,
while it exhausted the only Irish
credit available. Presenting further
objections he said that the principle of
the bill was to purchase the whole of
the estates. For this purpose £40,000,-
000 was ridiculously inadequate. Ireland contained 14,000,000 acres, of which
area the Poor Law valuation was £9,-
000,000. At this valuation the total at
%% years' purchase, would amount to
£106,000,000, which sum would be neces-
sary to provide the solution of the land
question. Mr, Parnell said the true
test of tho worth of the guarantees provided would be for Mr. Goschen to take
them to the London market and try to
see what he could realise on them. The
securities, he said, cannot be real unless
they effect a complete settlement of the
question uudor local authority. Otherwise the scheme Ib a parody on land
fiurchnse and a swindle on the Eng-
Ish tuxpayers. He continued in an
elaborate criticism of Mr. Balfour's
view, dealing with and contending
against the advantages which Mr.
Balfour suggested would accrue to the
landlords and tenants under the Bill.
Stanley'..  Hook.
London, April 20.—Stanley's book is
completed. The work abounds in
graphic illustrations of the character of
the inhabitants of the dark continent
and contains curious details concerning
the forest dwarfs to whom his letters
referred and iu whqjn the interest of
the civilized world is aroused. In his
description of the dwarfs Stanley states
that they possess many good qualities
which are wholly unsuspected by all except thoso who have come into immediate relations with them and who
have cultivated their friendship. Tho
race is markedly intelligent and possesses a decidedly higher grade of morality
than the negro. It is the only monogamous race iu Africa and stands quite
alone in regard for the sacredness of the
marital relations. The dwarfs are skilled workers in Iron and betray more
ready adaptability to civilization than
any other peoplo of that region. The
dwarf queen became a great friend of
Stanley and Dr. Parker and accompanied
thorn on the expedition for a considerable partof theirroad, but unfortunately
she died.
Parker publishes au exhaustive and
interesting account of his medical experiences In Africa. He describes an
extraordinary disease rife among the
natives in the neighborhood of the lakes.
It is produced by the lame of worms,
which enter the body through the teet
and extend their progress upward as far
as tho hip. Their presence causes sovere
swellings and ulcers nnd death. Stanley
applies his facta to theories relating to
the ultimate rise of the negroes in the
scale of civilization. He places them
more on an .equality with tlie whites
than most of the explorers are willing to
admit. This seems to be due to Ills
better knowledge of them consequent
upon hiB Christian sympathy with their
natures, and his invariable efforts to
cultivate their good will and respectful
intimacy.
At the Brussels anti-slavery conference
iu May, Stanley will dwell on the horrors of practices resorted to by the Arab
ivory hunters lu getting their goods,
which are worse than the practices of
the slave hunters, since the latter have
an interest in the lives of their slaves,
while the former kill and burn all before
them, Stanley says the forest dwarfs
have the oldest history iu the world,
tracing their lineage back for fifty centuries.      ^^^^^^^^mm
A Strong Resolution.
At a public meeting held in the towu
hall, Port Hammond, on Monday evening last, the following resolution was
carried unanimously: "Resolved that
this meeting endorse the resolution
passed by a meeting hold in this hall
last Saturday evening, and also, after
discussion, resolves that, inasmuch as
the senior member for Westminster
District is the father of the obnoxious
Redistribution Bill, ho has betrayed
tho trust reposed in him hy the electors
of this District, and, therefore, should
be called upon to resign."
The Great Delegation Waits on the
Government to Demand Mainland Rights.
Children Cry for Pitcher's Cutoria.
The Government Fails to Give Satisfactory Answer and Refuses to
Amend tlie Bill.
The Delegation Walts on Lieut-Governor and Urges Him to Withhold' Assent.
( From Our Own Correspondent)
VicToniA, April 23.
There were 20 delegates present at tho
meeting this morning, Mayor Brown
lend the deputation and did tho greater
partof the speaking. The main question put hy the delegation was: Is It
the intention of tho Government to
maintain the balance of power on the
Island as against the Mainland?
Hon. John Robson replied for himself
that that was not his position, but that
as soon as the census was taken a now
bill would bo sure to be brought in. Tho
present bill, under the" circumstunces,
was the best the Government could
have done, and it was impossible to do
otherwise. He would like to have done
better for New Westminster City and
District, but it was not possible in view
of the present state of affairs.
Mr. Curtis asked: When the census is
taken will a redistribution hill be offered giving fair, equal representation to
British Columbia, irrespective of the
Gulf of Georgia, Mainland or Island?
The Government's reply was characteristically cautious ami equivocal, but
admitted their intention was to recast
the present bill when the census is
taken.
Throughout the course of the conference the Government employed the
same old hackneyed arguments which
has been reported in the press repeatedly, and the delegation departed disgusted.
They have an appointment to meet
the Lieut-Governor at 8 o'clock this afternoon, and will ask him to withold the
passage of the bill in its present condition, and to delay its third reading until
further considered.
The Government practically assured
the delegation that no amount of persuasion or argument could induce them
to change the bill, from its present form
and it was quite useless to waste words
on the matter. Tho delegation feel convinced that Westminster is being discriminated against, and are indignant at
their treatment by the Government.

Interesting   Pickings From the Hudget
Debate    by  Able    Speakers  for   and
Against Sir   Mohan!    Cartaright's
Famous Amendment.
(From Our Own Correspondent.)
HOUSE OF   COMMONS.
Ottawa, April 14.—On Tuesday the
House resumed the debate on tho budget. Mr. Weldon (St. John) was the
first speaker. He said: Enjoying a
tariff of from 12}£ to 15 per cent, the
people of New Brunswick wore led to
believe that i\p greater burden of taxation would be imposed upon, Further
we were told, that by joining this
confederation we Bhould be enabled to
have reciprocal trado with the United
States. So far as our Province is concerned, considering our position, we
look to tho neighboring republic as our
bi»Bt market, nnd one of the good inducements which induced us to join
confederation was the hope that bv
that means reciprocal intercourse with
tlie United States might be obtained.
Our Province  is iu the unfortunate
Sosition that her own sons havo bur-
ened ub with heavy taxation. In
conclusion, I must use the words of the
post in this matter:

Mr. Daly said: Hon. Joseph Martin,
Attornev-Gencrni for Manitoba, had announced himself as an avowed annexationist. I find that in 1883, wo imported into the Province of Manitoba from
the United States 1,093 mowing mid
reaping nnd thrashing machines, to the
value of $141,516, upon which we paid a
duty of $35,505.10. We imported in that
yoar from tho United StateB, ploughs to
the value of $108,307, upon which we

engines, valued at $39,478. upon which
we paid a duty of $10,200.75. We imported othor implements to the value of
$107,104,on which we paid a duty of
$26,930.05. making the total imports
of agricultural implements from -the
United States in that year to $390,460,
on which we puid a duty of $99,819.95.
Although I am willing to stand up
here and advocate the interests of Manitoba, as I have always done, I cannot
forget thut I am still a Canadian.
Mr. Semple said: It is well-known
that the nearer the market—the better
it is for the seller. We have not a
sufficient number of peoplo in this
country to give a homo market, and,
therefore, tho next best thing is to have
a market as noar this country as possible,
Mr. Ward said: Tlio Indebtedness in
my county amounts to an average of
$69,071, or $27,100 less than the indebtedness which this hon. gentleman (Sir
Richard Cartwright) would make it
appear exists all over the country. I
havo no hesitation in saying that thiB
average indebtedness of $09,000 would
be reduced by payments—and-.by mortgages that are not in existence by " "
26 or 80 per cent,
Mr. Cameron said: I quite disagree
with him (Mr. Jones, Halifax) that the
farmers, tho fishermen or the mechanics
of tho maritime Provinces would tolerate
any such tariff (the Mackenzie tariff) as
compared with the tariff which now exists in the Dominion of Canada.
Mr. Barron said: It is sir, because the
amendment of ihe hou, member for
South Oxford (Sir Richard Cartwright)
is designed to particularly affect tho
farmers of this country, that I deem it
my duty to give my views on thiB important question. The farmers in this
country have been compelled in the past
to sell in the cheapest possible
market, and to buy everything
they have hnd to buy in the
dearest possible market. Let it be
now understood by tho farmers of this
country that at lust the Government
have expressed themselves beyond nny
possible doubt upon the question of reciprocity in natural products. I think
the time bus come for tho peoplo of this
country to call a halt in the way
the Government is managing our affairs.
Mr. Mnsson said: The increased duty
on pork and on fresh meat, on cattle ana
hogs, and on flour, will all tend most
decidedly to the advancement of the
farmers' interest. I was greatly pleased,
indeed, to hear the President of the
Council state, iu reply to a question put
by the other side of tne Houso, that he
was not in favor of reciprocity in natural products.
Mr. Pilatt said: I cannot refrain from
offering my congratulations to tho Minister of Finance upon tho maimer in
which he laid the financial statement
this year before the country. I consider that his statement was a better one
than those we have been accustomed to,
because it was laid before us in such a
calm aud deliberate manner.
Mr. Sproulo said: The manufacture of
cheese is one of the most important interests of the country to-day- Why, if
we allowed the cheose made in the
United States, composed largely of rotten lard, cotton seen oil and other injurious ingredients, to be thrown into
our country in tens of millions of pounds,
it would effectually destroy that industry.
Mr, Lavorgno said: When the President of tho Council rose the other day I
expected that ho would have treated
this question particularly from a Quebec
standpoint, but I must say I was disappointed in that regard. I must say that
there is no cause for satisfaction iu the
actual condition of our country, more
especially the condition of the Province
of Queliec.
Mr. Rosa said: With regard to the
tariff I might say that we iu the Northwest consider thnt during the past we
have been one of tho Provinces which
has been a principal sufferer in that connection, inasmuch as we have nothing
there that is protected.
Mr. Davin said: In the North-west
wo have such a fine ranching country
that nothing iu tho United States can be
compared with it. I object to unrestricted reciprocity because the Americans could bring iu their horses without
embargo being laid upon them.
The House then divided ou Sir
Richard Cartwright's amendment with
tho following result: Yeas, 60; Naya,
97. Messrs. Barnard, Earle, Gordon,
Mara, aud Prior voted in the negative.
On Wednesduy the following came up:
Fishing license to W. Gauthier, Montreal harbor improvements, I, C. R.
freight rates, Froderlcton Conteen's alleged outrage on the steamer Baltic,
after which the Houso went into committee ou Ways aud Means, Mtisrs.

aid, Wilson (Elgin), Sproule, Barnard,

part in tho debate.
On Thursday the following resolution
was adopted: Rosolved—That it is expedient to provide, in respect of the
bill entitulcd: "An Act respecting Agricultural Fertilizers," now before thiB
House: 1. That with every sample
transmitted in conformity with section
three of tho said act, tho manufacturer
or importer shall, at the samo timo,
transmit to the Minister a fee of three
dollars; 2. That the inspector shall be
entitled, for each package to which a
tag is attached under his supervision,
and for each bill of inspection delivered
by him, if the fertilizer is in hulk, to
such feo in either case as the Governor
in Council directs; 3. That every person who sells or otters fertilizers for salo
shall, beforo so doing, register hia name
and address once in each year with such
officer as tho Minister directs, and shall
at the same time pay a registration fee
of one dollar; 4. That nil fees paid and
penalties recovered under this Act shall
form pnrt of the Consolidated Revenue
Fund of Canada.
DIVKUS ACTS.
On Thursday we had the "Indian
Advancement Act Amendment," the
"Inland Revenue Act Amendment,"
" Fishing Vessels of the United States,"
"Seamen's Act," " Official Debates,"
"Voters' Lists," the " Interpretation
Act," tho "Supreme and Exchequer
Courts." the "Criminal Law Amendment," whit'ln-imsed considerable super-
fluous discussion aud wast of time; the
" Steamboat Inspection Act," " Agricultural Fertiliser's Act," etc., also came
up.
Friday opened with tho "Electoral
Franchise Act," and wns followed by tho
"Territories Real Property Act, and
tho " Disclosure of Official Documents,"
when tho House went into committee of
" WnyBund Means."
Tho owners of the steamer Gladys
have made n cut iu rates to meet tho

future will carry passengers to Chilliwack for 50 cents. They are also issuing
season tickets at this rate, Tho str.
Dele ware has not mot the cut yet, and

THE PUBLIC PRESS VS. ORGANS.
The Times is worried. Iu the gutless-
neBH, simplicity, and withal inherent
venality of its soul it has struck a snug.
Tho faithful organ of the loynl Opposition cannot imagine how it is possible
for a newspaper to be conducted on independent, not partisan principles. A
dyed-in-the-wool partisan itself, it has
no conception of independence in journalism. It does not believe in fair criti
eism, that hews to the line, let the chips
fall where thoy may, and at tho same
time refrains from hacking recklessy and
maliciously beyond the line. In making these remarks we would not have it
supposed that we have just made the
discovery that the Times ia thus functionally deranged, we havo known this
nil along, the symptom* have been
paraded on its face; but the organ in
question haa just had a peculiarly virulent eruption of its malady. In a recent
issue it broke out in a two column article
the intended point of which was to show
the inconsistency of The Columbian
and the World in criticising adversely
a bad and unjust Government measure,
while commenting favorably to the Government on tho lately submitted report
of tho Committee on Education. We do
not expect tho Times to understand how
a newspaper can vigorously oppose an
administration ou one or more points,
and Btill give it credit, where credit is
due.
On tlie question of redistribution,
we nre not to be led olf the track, nor
will we assist in misleading our readers,
by considering the question as a
party one in the lent. 1, or imagining that
the Opposition, had they been in power,
would have done any better than the
Government in this matter. Tho Mainland, as we have said before, cannot
afford to take promises from or put faith
in either political party, so fnr at
the redistribution question is concerned
especially when tho leaders of both do
not scruple to enunciate the prepostcr-
• ous and unjust "balance of power1
theory. Henceforth, therefore, we will
depend on ourselves, but will co-opcr
ate with any party that can be brought to
its senscaon this important and crucial
question.
As to the attitude of Tub Columbian
towards the Premier, wo do not oppose
him on the redistribution question, solely, or principally, on tho narrow ground
put forward by tho Times, that ho had
betrayed his constituents. We appreciate tho fact that the leader of a Government—the prime minister of a province, Btate, or dominion, as the case
may be—lias other considerations and
responsibilities to woigh besides the interests of his own constituents. A private member will not be blamed very
much if he d job not look beyond these;
but ihe prime minister has tho country
on his shoulders, so to speak, and if a
caso can be supposed where the interests
of his own constituency would conflict
with the good of the commonwealth, the
fonner would, in strict justice, have to
give way to the latter. The Premier
may possibly be able to justify himself
ou those grounds, to convince himself
that, under all the circumstances, he did
the best thing for the Province, in yielding to the tremendous pressure brought
to bear and consenting, not only to introduce the "compromise," "tenipor-
" ary," nud " partial" measure which
was the best his Government could
agree upon, but to attempt as well to
apnlogiBe for it.
But it iB right here that wc take issue
with the Premier, and denounce tho so-
culled Redistribution Bill as not merely
a compromise, temporary and paitial
measure, but ono which ia distinctly
sectional, grossly unjuot, and radically
■wrong in principle, and the worst feature
about tlie whfilo thing ao far as the Premier ie concerned ia his apology for the
measure and especially that part of
his apology where he allows himself to
appear to countenance and sanction that
most mischievous, subversive and outrageous fiction of the "balance of power,"
which is the root of tho whole trouble,
and must be sternly nml summarily
eradicated and cast out, instead of tolerated aud nourished. Neither Government nor Opposition have given any
indications of being equal to the task.
The truo course of tho Lower Mainland,
then, is to adopt the proposal of the
Mainland Association and send none but
pledged representatives—iudependentof
Government and Opposition alike—to
tho next Provincial Parliament, and
thiB, we are confident, will be done. The
entire Mainland, if the people
of the various constituencies are
wise, and have any sense of justice and
patriotism about them, and a minimum
of foresight as to certain futuro contingencies, will join with us of the Lower
Mainland in abolishing and crushing
once and for all a wrong nnd dangerous
principle in Provincial politics, and
establishing the reign of justice nnd
equality for every section of a united,
contented, and prosperous Province.
the keen relish which bravery always
brings. And what Englishman is there
who cares to forget the doings of the
men and women who reformed the
abuses of the prison and the lazaretto, the
Howards and the Harriet Frys, or those
who, like Florence Nightingale, left ease
and comfort at home to minister to tbe
needs of their countrymen on the battlefield.
The Englishman has a more than
ordinarily legitimate excuse for his
pride of race, for his country has, with
the aid of the Scotch and the Irish,
given to the world an empire the like of
which no previous age has ever looked
upon, aud, broadly speaking, the stride
of British conquest has been of incalculable benefit to tho people of the globe.
Not only have English speaking races
been conquerors, but benefactors, too
for iu the wako of the colonist and the
pioneer have followed all tbo Influences
of free government, tolerance and enlightenment. The English speaking
world bottBts, too, a literature, which
makes tho lowliest peasant, if only he
can read, rich beyond the native of any
other country. Chaucer, Milton and
numberless more, for "Merrie England,"
Scott and Moore, for the sister kingdoms, and the "poets from across tho
sea," all help to swell tho heritage of
every person who can read the English
language.
Aud, king above all is the man whose
death we commemorate to-day. Shakespeare' wrote, some ono has said "a lay
Bible," and this is true. Every tale,
evory play, is somebody's notion of an
interweaving of the lives and actions of
men and women, and it was this that
caused Crabbe to Bay that he could read
with pleasure the worst written story.
It contained at least the author's idea of
life under given circumstances, and
could not fail, therefore, to be of interest.
A dramatist with a low estimate of life
and morals "may oppose Itate to hate
" or cut the knot of a story with a trick
" oralis." "Shakespeare," Bays Henry
Morley, "iu his undoubted plays never
" allows evil to be overcome with evil."
The discords of life are healed by him
"only by man's lovo to God and hiB
" neighbor." Of the spirit of religion
Shakespeare's works are full, of its
dogmatism there is little.
To-day, therefore, is not merely a
festival for the insular Englishman, but
for all who can claim a British lineage,
or whoso blessing it iB to be able to call
tbe English language his own. Proud
of our common tongue nnd of the glorious history of our race, we may, too,
contemplate the future with unbounded
satisfaction, for, as British arms and
courage built up an empire, and have
created new nations, in the past, so the
liberal ideas and civilizing influence of
English speaking races must, iu the
future, succeed in making the world
better as it grows older.
ENGLISHMEN'S HAY.
The 23rd of April is a memorable day
for Englishmen, for not alone is it the
national festival of St. George, but the
anniversary of the death of Shakespeare,
The day, therefore, deserves to bo remembered nnd kept green, Who Is
thero of Knglish blood, in however remote a degree, but docs not with pride
remember that ho is of the race that
gavo to tho world tho valour of a Henry
V,, or tho patriotism oi a Raleigh, a
Drake, a Nelson and a Wellealey. Who
can look through tho annals of the martyrs of colonization without a thrill of
admiration for tho mon who dared ao
much, simply, bo far as tbey wore concerned, with little'or no reward except
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
An intimate friend of Prince Bismarck
says that tlie retired statesman as the
"man of blood and iron" is wholly inappropriate. BiBinarck, he says, lias always acted with moderation when ho
could, even when circumstance justified
harshness, and for twenty years he has
been the constant preserver of peace in
Europe. Even if this be true, however,
the ex-Chancellor may still be justly
described as a man of iron. An unbending will very often adopts a policy of mod'
oration as a menus of accomplishing its
ends.—Ex.
Having taught the men how to govern
the city properly, tho women of Oska-
loosa, Kas., have withdrawn from municipal politics, says an exchange. Under
the " petticoat government" of last year
the civic debt wns wiped out and a surplus established, tho streetB were put in
good shape, and tho morals of tho city
greatly improved. Having accomplished these excellent results, the women
have this year allowed tho men to re-
sumo the reins of government, and tho
latter will now have an opportunity of
allowing whether they have profited by
the good example set them.
Speaking of the proposed tariff increases on both sides of the international boundary, the Philadelphia Record
says: " The real motive for this hostile
legislation la in the profoundly superstitious belief on both sides that trade
between the United States and Canada
is pernicious to both people, and therefore should be discouraged as much aB
possible. When Sir John Macdonald
and his stupid Conservatives and the
Republicans of this country shall make
the mutual discovery that their legislation has wrought nothing but mischief,
thoy will then propose to erect higher
turrets and bastions on their double
Chinese wall."
The pension list of the United States
is a most formidable one, but it Ib proposed to extend it by adding evory soldier of the war who has attained the
age of sixty-five, and every soldier's
widow of that age, Whore a real disability exists there is a reason for pensioning, hut pensioning able-bodied people regardless of claims or necessities,
mako the pensioning list moro pauper'
izing in its tendencies than any poor
law over known. The U, 8. pension
list la already very heavy; it, with the
little U. S. army, costs the country, a
careful U. S. authority states, more
than the whole amount paid hy Germany for its huge army and the pension
list of tho wars of 1860 and 1871.

A few blocks and lots in the West
ern Addition to the City of New Westminster, Sub-Division of Lot 172, formerly the White Estate.
This sub-division, consisting of COO lots, was placed upon the
market by us a short timo ago, and so eager wero purchasers to
buy that the entire 000 lots wero sold out within one month. We
aro now offering the above proporty at slightly advanced rates on
behalf of former purchasers. Those who missed the chanco of
buying at first prices have yet an opportunity of investing at
prices that. cannot fail to yield a good profit. Wo believe that
this is the best speculative proporty in tho City of New Westminster.
SURREY.
5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Municipality of Surrey, midway between the
Cities of New Westminster, B.C.,.and
Blaine, Wash., at from $30 to $40 per
acre.
This property is situated on the Hall's Prairie road, near the
junction of tho Langloy Road, the Yale Road, and the Clovor
Valley Road, within 500 yards of the proposed station of the Now
Westminster Southern Railway. The land is'-high and dry, and
tho soil is first-class. , Surroy is ono of tho most prosperous sections of tho District of New Westminster, and is at present enjoying quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this property will got tho value of thoir money in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at the same time promises an oxcellont
Hold for speculation.'
NORTH  ARM.
146 acres in Lot 155, near the North Arm Road,
about 21-2 miles west of the New Westminster Oity
Post-office, at $150 per aore.
This is fine fertile soil, chiefly prairie, and lies well. It
has become a maxim that cities grow westward, and New Westminster is proving no oxception to tho rule. City lots wost of
Edinburgh Street, along tho North Arm road, havo douhlod in
value in less than a yoar, while acre tracts have, in the same
time, in somo instances moro than trobled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to tho Westerly City Boundary is
completed, the North Arm will become tho best suburban section
of the Oity. Moreover, it is confidently oxpected by many that
tho route of the Electric Railway to Vancouvor will travorso this
section. Our shrewdest speculators aro realizing tho possibilities
of this portion of tho City, and tho many salos of acre proporty
in the vicinity recently, indicate that land in tho direction of the
North Arm is lookod upon as ono of the host places for investment in tho District.    Prices are bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of {
City and Suburban Property, at moderate prices and
on favorable terms, of whioh we invite examination.

HOLLAND'S MILITIA.
Queer State of Affairs lu the Land
of Dykes aud Ditches.
How the Citizen Army Is Drilled Bt Bofr
terdaro, Amsterdam and Other Cities
—Droll Effects Produced by the
Ignorance of Officers.
Holland la becoming exceedingly
fidgety about her militia affairs, says a
letter in the Now York Tribune. The
national defenses are in a disorganized
condition, and tho Dutch would be unable to offer much resistance to any invasion. Reform is tbe ery on every
band, and universal conscription

no Dutchman nocd servo in tho regular
army if he can pay for a substitute.
Tho consequonco is that tho rich are opposed to tho universal conscription, bo-
oauso they do not want to serve, and tho
poor are against it because thoy would
no longer receive tho largo sums which
thoir childt'on earn by sorvlng as substitutes. Kvery man. howovor, between

they manago to fulfill \l\civ duty
after a fashion, but du.-i;i£ the
annunl maneuvers they aro subjected to gr-vat trials. A achuL^f Captain will ha standing in front of his
company, when a corporal acting as

lneiwage: 'Tho enemy ts clo.ic.it hand

to hi!-, men. Immediately the ramrjda
are heard to rattle in all tbo enormous
barrels of the old muskets, and a minute latar the hammers fall with a
clicking noise of old metal. For the
inilitia-men are not only forbidden the
uso at gunpowder, but aro oven denied
percussion caps. In the middle of all
this tho Adjutant of- tho regiment, who
is invariably nn ofilcer of the regular
ormy, dutdies upon horseback and ex-
olaitus iu frantic tones to tho Captain:
''Good heaven..! man, don't you know
that in oust) of volley tiring the oilleers
must not stand right in front of tho muz-
zles of thoir men's guns?"
Nowise disconcerted, the Captain
pulls his hand-book of military regulations out of lils pocket and, after carefully glancing over soveral pages, replies in a nonchalant manner: "Well,
I don't see any thing about It In here."
The face of tho adjutant becomes
Bcat'lot, he gulps down two or three big
oaths and finally ejaculates: "Here,
give me thu book. See there! It is
page forty-eight." And then, witli a
look of despair and a shrug of his shoulders, he dashes off to some other equally
well-Informed scbuttor officer.
Meanwhile the Captain has leisurely
returned his sword to its scabbard and
'has Inscribed in bis note-hook the following memorandum: "Incuse of volloy
firing it is better for the officer to keep
to the rear of tho front, so as not to
como into contact with tho) muzzles of
his men's guns,"
The Majors, the Lieutenants nnd the
Colonels of tho "schuttory" uro all out

There were only fifteen appeala altogether, and all of these but one were

Fisk Jubilee Hli-gors.
Herring's Opera House waa packed
laat night with a very enthusiastic
audience to hear the world-renowned
jubilee singers. As on the previous
occasion the entertainment gave the
highest satisfaction, and overy item but
two waB heartily encored. In fact the
encore was carried to such an extent
that even the audience began to fear
that thoy might carry their feelings too
far and fatigue tbe performers, but all
doubts on thiB point were removed
when on the next call the singers gave
"We are not weary yet" with such
spirit and good naturo that confidence
on this point was fully restored. If
ever the jubilee singers visit Westminster again no house of public amusement
will be largo enough to hold the audience.

yesterday, in which waters he successfully deposited about a million sprightly
young salmon fry. The steamer bearing
the fish sailed un Sumas river and entered tlie lake without trouble, this being
the second time on record that a steamboat has milled the bosom of this placid
sheet. The fry were turned loose at a
convenient Bpot und left to shift for
themselves. The hatchery is now nearly bare of its brood and 1u.0t._or week or
ten days will suffice to remove the
remaining fry.

district. Each candidate not a graduate
of a theological institution, must perforin four years missionary work, and
prepare for his examination during this
period.

The Hush of Immigrant..,
The steady stream of immigration
pouring into Westminster is certainly a
matter for congratulation, especially as
thero is work in plenty for all. But
the great drawback ia the lack of room
to accommodate the new comers, and a
very serious drawback this ia. Three
families arrived last week intending to
stay but wero forced to remove elsewhere simply because they could not
find houses to live in. Men who were
unable to find employment in Vancouver and who are now working in thia
City are unable to bring their families
here to reB.de for the reason that houses
nre not to be got to accommodate them.
There are over twenty families waiting
to remove from Vancouver to this Citv
the moment thoy can get a place to live
in. Yesterday a family consisting of 21
persons arrived from the eaat to make
Westminster their home, but they find
that it is the old'story "nohouses," and
have decided to settle in one of tho up-
river townships. And though houses
are scarce they are springing up like
mushrooms all over the City, a dozen or
more being completed every week, but,
of course, these were engaged by house-
hunters from one to three months ago.
The question of house room ia a difficult
problem to work out.
Knight), of Pythias.
At 8:30 o'clock yesterday morning a
preliminary meeting of the delegates
from Nanaimo, Wellington, Vancouver
and Westminster, witli those from Far
West Lodgo of Victoria was held in the
hall of the last named lodge. Two hours
later a second general meeting was held,
at which the organization of tlio Grand
Lodge of British Columbia was proceeded with, Deputy Supreme Chancellor
Bchnsen, of Victoria, presiding. Each
of the lodges of the Province, five in
number, were represented by two voting delegates; while each has alao sent
two Past Chancellors over to receive
their rank. Tho election of Grand
Lodge officers was disposed of and afterward the preparation of a constitution,
and rules to govern the subordinate
lodges waa commenced. There are now
five lodges of the K. of P. in British Columbia, of which Far Weat Lodge ia the
pioneer, numbering over fivo hundred
members. On the organization of tho
Grand Lodge, British Columbia will be
entitled to representation in the Supreme Lodge. The session will probably last until Thursday afternoon, when
a Rrand drill by the uniform rank will
bring the proceedings to a close.
Judge Bole Dined,
The Bar of 'Vancouver last evening
bunquetted Judge Bole at the International Hotel. About fifteen iu all were
present, including the guest of the evening. The chair was occupied by M r, J.
J. Blake, and the vice-chair by Mr. L.
G. McPbillips. Tlie menu was a special
effort on tho part of Herr Boeblofaky
and it goea without saying that it was
beyond reproach. The first toast on
the Hat was "Tho Queen," which waB
duly honored in the customary manner.
"Our Honored Guest," proposed by Mr.
Blake iu a happy speech, brought a reply
from Judge Bole which kept "the table
in h roar" during its contlnuence. The
speech throughout scintillated with that
keen wit for tho possession of which His
Honoris so well known. It was the
speech of u lawyer, but of one who has
sympathies beyond thoso to be found
between the covers of "Blackstono," or
"Coke," or "Lyttleton." Tho wiBe
' 'saws and modem instances" with which
his address was replete, were given a
novelty of appearance which made them
refreshingly acceptable. The next toast
was "Mr. Charles A. Coldwell, tho
Register." The "Bur of Westminster"
followed aud was replied to by Mr. E. A.
Jenns. Mr. A, E. Beck proposed "the
Magistrate, Mr. I, H. Hallet." Other
speeches, interaperaed with songs, followed und the Bench and Bar spent it
pleasant evening together.—News-Ad-

Itlsmarek Indulgea Too Freely.
Bkkmn, April 22,—The Freisinnige
Xeitung publishes what purports to be
somo remarks made by Prince Bismarck
to n deputation of tho Manufacturer's
Association which waited upon him ou
April 10th. In the courae of his address
the ex-Chancellor is alleged to have
declared that he would gladly have remained iu office had tho Emperor expressed a desire that he should do so.
He attributes his removal to the intrigues of his opponents, and especially to
tho maehinatlons of a Minister who owed
his position to him. Prince Bismurckia
aaid by the SSeitnng to havo admitted
that he difibrod with tho Emperor on
tho labor question. Prince Bismarck
further said that ho had ns u result of
search, produced a cabinet and placed
tho intercourse of the Ministers with tho
Crown, under the control of the President of the President of the Council, with
the object of frustrating these intrigues,
He expressed hia belief that the action
of Dr. Windthorst in beggti
view with him at which  tlie Clerical
leader made impossible demands was
also a trap sot for him. The Gazette expresses the opinion that previous to his
speech to the deputation, Prince Bismarck had Indulged too freely in stimulants.
PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.
Tuesday's Proceedings.
Mr. Speaker took the chair 2:10 p. in.
Prayers by Rev. P. McF. McLeod.
Hon. Mr. Robson rose to a question of
privilege and said he had been unreported in both the Truth and The Co-
MmniAX, ot Westminster, in regard to
the "unwritten compact that the balance of power should remain as it waa
before 1888. Tho Truth did not always
apeak the truth (hear, hear), and he had
been made to say exactly the opposite of
what ho had said.
Mr. Ladner also rose to a question of
privilege and said ho had been misre-
ported in the Colonist. He had said
that he understood this House failed to
meet one evening last week because of a
dinner at the house of one of the ministers. The Colonist made him say that
the House adjourned for "a drink.'"
(Laughter.) He would be sorry to use
any such language on the floor of this
House and he repudiated the statement
that the House had adjourned for a
drink.
Mr. Grant alao rose to a question of
privilege and aaid he had been unreported in tho Colonist. That paper said
lie had "paired with Mr. Anderson iu
the redistribution question." This waa,
jib overy one knew, fulae.
Hon. Mr. Beaven.—The reporters
never did that.
Mr Grant.—No, I don't think they
did.
■ The petition of the miners of west
Kootenay against the royalty clause in
the Railyway Aid Bill was read and received and directed to be printed.
Mr. Grant moved the following resolution: That this Houso has no confidence iu the present Government.
It had become painfully evident during
the discussion on the Redistribution
Bill that this Government did not de-
serve to exist a day longer than the end
of thia session. Tlio Government did
not euro ao much for tho interests of the
country as for exigencies of the caac
Ono of the moat extraordinary statements made by the premier when
speaking on that bill was that about
"half uloaf of broad," ho admitted that
many parta of this Province would not
be aatisflod with what had beeu done in
this case, they would not be satisfied
with this half loaf, but, if tho Government were returned to power the
country would get the other half. He
was surprised to heat such a remark
from a man of the ability of tlie Premier.
It was tbe old attempt 'of the Govern-
met to play foi public favor. Re-election was their aim, an aim which he
felt sure the good senso of the country
would frustrate. The honorable gentleman then proceeded to detail tho short-
coinings of the Government in language
of considerable severity.
Sir. Grant said that ho had takon
down several remarks of the Hon. Mr.
Robson, made during the speech ou the
Redistribution Bill. The latter denied
ever having mode suoh statements. Mr,
Grant aaid it was high time that there
waa an official stenographer for this
House, as there wero things said on the
floor ot tho floor of the I louse and deliberately denied within the same hour.
Honorable members got up and made
statements which they knew would be
most damaging to them did they go out
to the country, therefore they denied
those statements unblushingly when-
over they wero taxed with their authorship.
Mr. Ladnerj in seconding the resolution, entered into voluminous statistics.
He aaid it was singular that the district
of Westminster, the constituency of the
honorable the Premier, himself, Buffered more than any other tn the country.
The Premier had admitted this himself.
Hon. Mr. Robson—I would not be
likely to admit such a palpable falsehood'.
Mr. Ladner aaid it was so, just the
anntc, and he expected nothing less than
a denial from tne honorable the Premier. He complained bitterly of tho
taking away of Queen Charlotte Islands
from New Westminster District. This
was an act of violence; the Government
were taking away everything from that
district. He said it was a burning
shame to treat the rich district so
shabbily iu the matter of roads and
bridges. He drew it vivid picture of the
bad condition of the present roads. He
read a description of the storming of the
Legislative Assembly, which took place
some years ago, and this reading caused
unbounded amusement. There was a
large deputation, he said, coming from
tho Mainland that njght, and he would
like to know if history would repeat itself in this case as in the one he had
just read.
Mr. Cunningham—No, no.
Mr. Cuunimgham said the remarks
of the gentlemen who had proceeded
him made it more and more difficult for
him to choose ground for his vote; und
lie now saw himself reduced to a minority of one. He wanted to be fair to
the Government, IiIb constituents anil
himself. If he voted for this resolution
he stultified himself and ho was not prepared to do that. He meant to give tho
Government credit for having done the
best they could, aud for having dono tlio
business of the country fairly well up to
tbe time of the introduction of the Redistribution Bill. Tho Premier had
honestly confessed that this bill was unfair to his own constituents.and ho (the
speaker) too, must say also that his constituents also wero dealt unfairly by.
The Finance Minister had said that it
wub all u matter of dollars and cents nud
thnt as long ns Westminster got tho dollars and cents sho did not want anything else. But lie denied that; Westminster w«s not prepared to sell her
birth right for a mess of pottage. Another gratuitous insult which had been
offered by the hon. President of tho
Council was that a mob was coming
over from the Mainland to deal with the
House in a high handed manner. The
gentlemen who were coining down on
this deputation were as harmless and
mild as lambs nud to call them a mob
was a gratuitous insult.
Hon. Mr. Pooley denied having called
the deputation a mob and explained
what he had said.
Coming to tho Redistribution Bill Mr.
Cunningham characterised it as an
abominable measure, ns Thk Columbian
had said, "an iniquitous and infamous
bill." Tub Columbian was one of the
most independent, fearless and outspoken journals in this Province and
wub a credit to it, and he was sure ita
utterances wore entitled to respect; it
had voiced tho sentiments of the entire
population of Westminster City. But
no scarcely know whut to do on this present measure.
Hon. Mr. Robson (pointing to the Opposition) Don't go with that crowd.
(Laughter.)
Mr. Cunningham then said he believed it might be as well to remain in
tho frying pan after all.
Mr. Orr—Don't you do it, Tommy,
don't.   (Roars of laughter.)
Mr. Cunningham, when order was restored, said ho failed to see on what
grounds another member was refused to
Westminster City.
Mr. Cunningham was applauded ou
finishing his speech.
Hon, Mr. Pooley procoeded to show
whore the sectionalism of Mr. Cunningham came In. That gentleman was always calling for more for Westminster;
he wanted three members for Westminster, he wanted this, thnt and the other
thing for Westminster, Ho had displayed the vory greatest sectionalism since
he had sat in the House. -He could not
blame him for these views, as ho had
come down imbued with these ideas,
but those things got into the press and
led people to believe that Westminster
wns trying to run this country. The
hon. gentlemen then turned Ills attention to the remarks made by the hon.
member for Cassiar, and enterodatsome
length into a refutation of that gentleman's argument and assertions. Mr,
Grant then refuted tho refutations of
the president of the council.
Mr. Semlin then said he had, unlike
the hon. member for Westminster City,
not supported the policy of the
Government. The Government had
not the entire confidence of the
country and everybody was not convinced that the Government would conduct the affairs of the Province in the
proper manner.
House adjourned at 6 o'clock until 8,
A Fugitive from Justice.
A warrant for the arrest of an individual who took a prominent hand in the
Skeena River troubles of a few yeara ago
has been issued, the charge being one of
aggravated assault. The alleged assault
was committed near Inverness ft couple
of weeks ngo, when the accused attacked Mr. Dempster, the canner, with a
hunting knife. Help arrived before
harm was done, and tne holder of the
knife was knocked down with a crowbar.
He then ran for his rifle, and when. returning with it, bent on mischief, he
was captured and disarmed by Captain
McCulloch, of the Louise, and Mr. R.
Cunningham, jr. Since the warrant has
been issued, tho man wanted has taken
to the woods, nnd it is probable thnt he
will dodge arrest for some time.—Colo-
nist. _________________
Everything in New York, the Buffalo
Commercial says, is paralysed witli admiration of tho wisdom of the new chief
of the street cleaning department of that
city us displayed by him in dealing with
the tremendous problem of "combining
the two intricate operations of scraping
street dirt into piles and carting tlie
same away before it is distributed again
on the same premises." Hitherto
American genius has been unable to
grapple successfully with this great
question, but the New York official bus
found the solution of it. It is announced
that "tlie city will be divided into districts; that a force of able-bodied men
wearing numbered badges will be assigned the duty of sweeping the pavements in these districts daily; that each
laborer shall have a wheelbarrow, hoe,
broom and shovel; nud, finally, that
inch district shall have numerous fixed j
•eceptaclea at convenient spots, in which
the sweepers shall deposit their sweepings, mid which shall bo emptied at
fixed hours daily by the carting brigade.'''
This is not a new plan, for it has beeu
successfully operated for years in many
of the largest European citiea. It la
new to America, however, and New
Yorkers are delighted with the sagacity
of tho man who haa adopted it for the
cleaning of their streets. He deserves
to bo made Governor of the State.
