Something  Gigantic.
New Yobk, April 21.—Tangible steps
have been at last taken in that gigantic
South America scheme known as the
the Grace-Peruvian contract. Tlie com-
pany, which has been projected for so
long a time, and which is to assume the
national debt of Peru, amounting to
$250,000,000 in return for the valuable
concessions and land grants from that
Government, has been organized in London. Its directorate is composed of Sir
Alfred Pent, of Dent Bros. A Co; H. R.
flrenfell, director in the Bank of Eng-
Utnd; the Earl of Donoughmore; J. B,
Iftbbock, of Roberts, Lubbock A Co;
W. D.Heinenman of If eineiiinau & Co;
C. Grey Mott, director of the Great
Western Railway; Sir Doyles  Gal ton;
F. F. Liddesdale, of the East and West
Indies Dock Co.; H. Ovens, Amsterdam banker, and Sir Harry W. Tyler,
chairman of the Grand Trunk Railway.
The trustees of the Peruvian bonds deposited with the company are the Right
Hon. Sir John Lubbock, member of Her
Majesty's Privy Council; Right Hon,
Sir N. S. Elphinstone, Grant Duff and
G. H. Hopkinson of the great banking
house of that name. Ex-Mayor Grace
said to a reporter yesterday that he had
received word from London to the effect
that the first issue of $7,500,000 debentures of the company, which is known
as the Peruvian Corporation, had been
all taken up. The issue was made Tuesday of last week, he said, and was to
close Saturday. By Thursday the
amount had been already over subscribed, thus assuring the entire success of the scheme financially. The
capital stock of the corporation is £16,-
600,000, or double the amount of Pern's
original national debt. It is proposed
only to raise money as fast as it is need-
Admitted to Ball.
Washington, D. C, April 21.—Chief

Woodruff Discharged.
Chicago, April 21.—Frank Woodruff
was formally discharged from the indictment for complicity in the murder
of Dr, Cronin in Judgo Howe's court
this morning. He has been jail 11
months and that three full terms of the
court had passed since he demanded a
separate trial was the ground on which
he was discharged. His attorney will
demand a trial for him on the horse
stealing charge at this term of the court.
The Electric Sugar Frauds.
Nbw York, April 21.—OliveE. Friend,
Emily Howard, George Hallstead, who
have beeu prisoners in the Tombs for
the past sixteen months on account of
their connection with the electric sugar
frauds, were today discharged upon their
own recognizances. Prof. Friend, the
originator of the fraud, is dead, and his
chief assistant, Hanson William Howard,
is now serving 10 years for grand larceny
in the first degree. Mrs. Friend and
Mrs. Howard's mother and daughter
were wives of these men, and although
.thought to have a good portion of the
proceeds at their command, probably
acted to a considerable extent under the
control of their husbands. District Attorney Fellows considered it inadvisable
to try the women at the present time.
Discriminating Bates.
New York, April 21.—The New York
Times special from Chicago says: California merchants have revolted against
S resent rates on tea from the Pacific
oast to eastern points. The point is
that only f 1.60 per 100 pounds is being
charged for tea shipped from Yokohama
to Chicago, while for a similar shipment
from San Francisco to Chicago the
amount exacted is $2 per hundred
pounds for less than car lots, and $1.55
for car load shipments. Of the one
dollar and fifty-five cent rates the railways get the full amount. Tlie interstate commerce commissioner is of an
opinion that prima facie caso against
the railroads has been made of a violation of the long and short haul clause of
the law. If documents substantiating
the statements made iu the resolutions
are sent, the commissioners will instruct
railway companies to cease their discrimination against San Francisco in the
matter of tea rates. Prominent railroad
men assert that any attempt on the part
of the Inter-state commerce commission
to reduce the rates will be contested in
In the courts, which will eventually lead
to a judicial determination of the constitutionality of the law, or at least of
some of its provisions.
Eastern Advices,
San Fbancisco, April 21.—The str.
Rio de Janeiro arrived from Hong Kong
and Yokohama this afternoon bringing
the following advices: Attempts are being made to stir up an anti-Christian
and anti-Foreign excitement in Win-
chang, China, Inflammatory placards
have been distributed throughout the
city and posted up at the most conspicuous places. The rowdy element are
going about calling for the extermination of the foreigners. American and
English missionaries have notified their
consuls and the viceroy has been requested to take stern action in tho matter.

fifteen Lives  Lost.
London, April 21.—News has been received here that tho steamer Billboa
has been lost in the North Sea and fifteen persons drowned. The Billboa
left Grimsby on April 8th for this port.
The New Cruiser,
San Francisco, April 20.—The cruiser
Charleston returned from her trip to
Monterey this afternoon. Her guns
have been thoroughly tested and her
crew rigidly drilled during the past
week, She will probably remain in
port ten davs or two weeks.
Stanley at Brussels.
Brussels, April 20.—H. M. Stanley
was to-day welcomed at the Franco-
Belgian frontier, by tlie Burgomaster
and a Board of Aldermen of Brussels,
and was by them accompanied to the
city. The depot, which wascrowded with
people, and was decked out in gala dress-
a prominent feature of the decorations
being the entwining flags of the United
States, Belgium and the Congo Free
State. The band of the Civil Guards,
who were present for escort duty, played
the national anthems of America and
Belgium. Alighting from the train
Stanley was received dv Count Doultre-
mont, Marshal of tho Court, who represented King Leopold. Amidst the cheers
of the people, the party at once entered
a court carriage and were driven to the
palace, A serious scuffle occurred between the Civic Guards and the press
reporters, the latter vigorously objecting
to the position assigned them from which
to view the ceremonies.
Colonial Postage.
London, April 19.—Sir. J. Henniker-
Heaton, M.P., has written a letter to
the  Time* on the subject of the new
Sostal regulations with Australia as in-
icated by the budget. It ia glaringly
unjust. Mr. Heaton declares that the
postal rate to Australia should be the
samo as to America. The Anglo-American mail has doubled iu volume within
the last decade, yet there is no reduction of the postage, while the Australian
mails, never self-sustaining, have shown
very little increase. In tho increase of
the service to America, however, he has
reason to hope that the. Government
will ultimately cheapen the rates,
although it ought to be done now. Mr.
Heaton makes no objection to the reduction, but merely objects to the reduction being confined to that colony.
Primrose Day.
London, April 19.—London was painted yellow to-day, in commemoration of
the death of Lord Beaconsfield. The
statue of the Tory statesman was completely covered with primroses and the
crowds in the vicinity were so dense
that that the services of a large auxiliary force of police were brought into
requisition to clear the square.
The entire celebration was under the auspices of the Primrose
League, whose membership, it is announced, has reached the number of
907,000.     	
The Congo Governorship.
London, April 19.—In the present aspect of the case, it is regarded as a great
deal more probable that Mr. Stanley will
become the Governor of theCongo Free
States, than that he will enter the British service. As Governor of the Congo
country, he would exercise more power
than in any capacity to which the British could assign him, and he would be
able to govern with an absolutely free
hand. Mr. Stanley recognizes the fact
that King Leopold has a first claim urxm
him, and the implicit confidence which
that monarch bestows upon him, is a
sufficient guarantee that no interference
with the Government would be offered.
It is therefore believed that Mr. Stanley
will receive his commission before he
leaves Brussels if he desires it.
THE REDISTRIBUTION BILL.
Conclusion of tho Discussion on This
Famous Bill—Mr. Cunningham Suggests Representation for Trial Island-
Stole a Hundred Thousand.
Montreal, April 16.—It is now
learned that the Notre Dame church
warden, Isaie Amable Quintal, who
eloped to New York Saturday with the
wife of a commercial traveler named
Beaulieu, has victimized banks and
creditors generally to a greater amount
than at first estimated. The total defalcation, it is now known, will be over
$100,000. The defaulter is an ex-president of the Saint Jean Baptiste society.
He is about 65 years of age, and leaves a
wife and three children behind him,
who are totally unprovided for. Mrs.
Quintal is in deep distress, und says
she cannot account for her husband's
strange action. They had been married
eighteen years, and had always lived
happily together. She knew nothing
about his business affairs. She said
further she was willing to give his creditors all possible assistance, and refused
to believe that he had gone with another
man's wife. New York detectives have
beon notified by telegram of Quintal's
elopement with Mrs. Beaulieu.
OTTAWA  NEWS:
General Laurie's  Notice  at Motion   on
the Commercial   Question.       -
I From Our Own Correspondent,]
Ottawa, April 21.—The only business
outside of the ordinary routine done in
the House up to this hour is the speech
of General Laurie in presenting his
notice of motion, which reads as follows;
"Copies of any and all communications
that may have passed between the Dominion and Imperial Governments with reference to the abrogation of those articles
In the various treaties of commerce between Her Majesty'sGovernment aud the
Governments of foreign nations as preclude preferential fiscal treatment of
goods of British and colonial production
y the Government of the Dominion,"
He is making a lengthy and convincing
speech.     mmmmmm_________mm
General Middleton explains that he
authorized the confiscation of a lot of
furs belonging to the rebels, and that
he thought he was not exceeding his
powers hi allowing hiB staff to take some
"ns mementos of the campaign" and In
taking some himself. He also bought a
lot of furs and received some as presents,
bo that with the mementos, purchases
and presents he had enough skins to
open a shop. Finding he had more
than enough fur by which to remember
tlio campaign, Sir Fred disposed of them
to a loyal Ottawa furrier t and made
presents of others to his friends. The
question now arises, how will this matter be regarded by the military authorities in England? Ever since the
Chinese war looting has been strictly
prohibited in the British nriny. There
is Just a chance that the affair may be
regarded with great disfavor In England
—especially if Sir Fred, forgot to send
some of the skunk skins to the war office.

fFromOurOwii Correspondent. 1
Mr, Cunningham said if any gentleman in the House deserved sympathy
and pity to-night ho was the man. He
bad always supported the honorable
loader of the Government. It was
painful to liim to have to differ with
that gentleman on the measure before
tho House at the present time. He
considered that measure unjust to the
constituency he represented. Had anyone told him thirty days ago that Hon.
Mr. Robson would have allowed such a
bill to come before the House, he would
have scouted the idea as absurd. He
was not prepared to discuss this question
from any narrow, sectional feeling. This
moasure hud beon constructed on the
narrowest sectional lines. Were all his
Interests vested in Victoria he would
still tell the Government that they
were doing a dangerous thing. He was
sorry as a friend that the honorable the
Premier had gone back on his record
like this. But Victoria was to blame;
she had three members in the cabinet
and perhaps it was not surprising that
the honorable the Premier haa been
over-ruled and compelled to acquiesce
in u measure which he was conscious
did no justice to Westminster City and
District.
Mr. Cunningham then detailed what
Westminster had done for the benefit of
the Province, and he could not see what
she had done to incur the displeasure of
the Government.
Hon. Mr. Robson said Westminster,
far from having incurred the displeasure
of the Government had always been a
favored child.
Mr. Cunningham, continuing, asked
the Government on what principle
they had constructed this policy of redistribution.
Hon. Mr. Robson said he had already
fully explained that matter.
Mr. Cunningham wanted to know if it
wore right to give three members to a
constituency with only 373 votes (Cariboo) and only one to a constituency
with nearly double. Vancouver was
certainly justly entitled to threo members. The enterprising people of that
city were heroically pushing the trade
of this Province in every line. And
Westminster, too, deserved more justice
than this at the hands of the Government. She had been working nobly in
in the interests of the Province, and
why should she not receive hor just due
in representation. He was sorry to say
anything against the old constituency of
Nanaimo; he had a kindly feeling towards that constituency, Wit for the life
of him he could not see why she should
have four members and Westminater
only one. Tho excuse offered was that
it was a question of expediency. A poor
excuse surely. Then Cowichan received
three members, a district that did not
contribute one-half into the revenue
thnt Westminster City did. Thon the
Government had been at its wits' end to
{.luce one remaining member and where
n the name of reason did they nut liim?
Why in the little islands of the gulf.
(Laughter.) The next thing wc should
havo would be a representative on Trial
Island.   (Laughter.)
Hon Mr. Robson—Ah, no, that would
be cruel. The sea would wash ull over
the poor man and wet him. (Laughter.)
Mr. Cunningham—Well, I don't see
why the light-house keepers should not
receive representation, it all those little
spots get It.
Mr, Ladner—Of course; wo'd have
more light on the subject.
Mr. Cunningham, continuing, said
that if things went on as they were going thero soon would not be a logging
camp on Vancouver Island that was
not represented on the floor of this
House. He considered that Yule ought
to have one more member in view of her
contributions to tho provincial treasury.
He hoped the Government would concede Westminster City one more mem-
"ber. It was her just due and every fair-
minded member on the floor of this
Houso must agree with him in this request for one more member for that city,
(Applause.)
Mr. Semlin was not disposed to let the
question go to vote without stating his
reasons for voting against it. He hoped
the Attorney-General would dispose of
hiB inertia and come to the rescue and
defense of his purity on this measure.
He never felt moro discouraged on rising
to speak on any question than he did on
this. What the Government was meting out to us now they would mete out
to us four years hence, if they obtained
the power to do so. The Government
was afraid of this measure going before
the people. [Hon. Mr. Davie interjected
"what nonsense." | Mr. Semlin said
there was not so much nonsense in it,
as tho Government would find to their
cost whon thoy themselves went before
the people.
Hon. Mr. Davie said Hon. John Robson would be returned at the head of the
poll anywhere he liked to offer himself,
as had always been the case.
Mr. Grant—Not always.
Hon. Mr. Davie—Oh well, that was a
long time ago before there were so many
wise i»cople in the Province as there are
now. "
Mr. Semlin, continuing, said this
measure was founded on the very narrowest sectionalism. It could not be
expected that all parts of the Province
would meekly and quietly accept this
measure without a murmur. (Ap-
plauBe.)
Mr. Orr had hoped the Government
would have deferred tho second rending
till Monday, but aa they had decided to
force it to-night he would make a few
remarks upon their conduct and the
measure they had brought down. Ho
entered into comparative statistics,
Vancouver-Victoria, to show tho injustice which had beeu dono tho former in
the bill. Should it pusB ns it now stood
thore would most probably bo an agitation in this country the like of which
had never been seen hero before. Population, wealth and industries should
form tho basiaof representation. Whon
Hon. Mr. Robson had spoken ut the
Board of Trade dinner at Vancouver
some time ago he told them ho would
give two, threo or oven four representatives, for ho thought they were entitled
to them. He should certainly vote
against tho bill as it stood at present.
Mr. Grant said n moro miserable
spectacle was never presented in this
House than the attempt of the leader of
the Government to explain hisreaBons
for bringing iu this abortion of a bill.
Tho idea of tho head of a responsible
Government telling the House that it
wns not his policy but that of his cabinet that he presented to them. In
othor countries when a Premlor disagreed with his cabinet, tho latter had
to step down and out. The arguments
against the bill had beeu so ably doalt
with by the honorable member from
New Westminster City and tho honorablo members for Yale and Westminster
District that thore was littlo left to say
on the matter. Ho was not a Mainland
or an Island partisan, but a British
Columbian (hear, hear), und he wanted
to seo justice dono to evory part of the
Province. Vancouver had not been
justly dealt with. It was a city of
wealth and importance iu population
and industry; Westminster City also
was a city of wealth nnd great Interests;
many great commercial • nterprlses were
centred there and it did most certainly
deservo anothor member.
Hon. Mr. Beaven had hoped that this
measure would have been held ovor until next week,  but the Government,
with their usual main strength and
force, had driven it on. Only one gentle
man out of the six who had spoken said
that the measure was a good one. The
Premier, himself, had admitted that it
would not be received with complete
satisfaction throughout the Province.
The cheerful pop of a cork in an adjoining room startled the House and upset its gravity at this point.
"What's that?" said Mr. Ladner;
sounds familiar."
"Yea, came from the premier's pocket"
said Mr. Grant; at which everybody
laughed, while the premier transfixed
the perpetrator of the libel with a basilisk glare.
Mr. Beaven proceeded and said that
no more humiliating statement than
that made by the hon. the premier that
evening had ever been heard in this
House. Hon. Mr. Robson had said if
the peoplo kept him in power he would
still further cany out this policy. Well,
all he could say waa that if the people
did keep him iu power they were greater blockheads than he thought they
were. (Laughter). He would decidedly vote against the second reading of the
bill.
Hon. Mr. Davie followed and spoke
for about an hour, hia speech, as usually
being full of hearty thumps for the
Opposition and a warm defense of the
bill. The hon. leader of the Opposition
of course came in for a full share of the
hon. gentleman's compliments.
Hon. Mr. Ladner proposed a new
scheme of re distribution to the Government which they did not look upon with
either favor or attention.   The hon.
ffentlemati, however, spoke for over
inlf an hour. He said he would certainly vote against the bill and do hia beat
to defeat it.
House had a recesB of fifteen-minutes
during which a revival service of song
was held in the committee room, led by
a member of the Government. A strongly marked disinclination to go home until a very early hour in the day formed
the burden of the ditty.
On resuming business Mr. Smith said
that it was to nave been expected that
general satisfaction would not be felt
throughout the country when the particulars of the Redistribution Bill were
made known. He remembered the
time when only 60 votes were cast in
the district of Yalo and yet even at that
time it was not population that counted
in representation but the importance of
the district itself. He thought It would
be most objectionable to decrease the
number of members anywhere In the
Province. He could see no valid reason
for objecting to an increase of members
in the House. Of course there would be
the additional expense of maintaining
these extra numbers and that .waB about
tlie only drawback. The idea of separation mentioned by some gentlemen
was a subject which should be avoided
by speakers on nil occasions. He had
lived in the United States and he could
inform the House that iu that country
it waa not particularly by population
that the people wero represented. If
such wore the case the city of New York
alone would have a representation out
of all proportion to the rest of the country. Westminster city and Vancouver
by means of largely swollen voters' lists
could come to tlie House and demand
increased representation,
Mr. Cunningham—"No sir, it's not
true."
Mr. Smith: "I say it might be done."
Mr. Cunningham: "Well, It isn't."
Mr. Mason said he wished to compliment tho leader of the Government on
his honest speech. He thought this bill
a just one. Ho did not think the Mainland had very much the advantage of
the Island in population; but no doubt
in the course of a few years the Mainland would far outstrip the Island and
then, of course, there would be a necessity for redistribution. He did not wish
to ask for any moro members for Cariboo just now (laughter); but when tho
railway waa put through he should feel
it incumbent upon him to make such a
demand. (Hear, hear.) It was useless
for him to enlarge upon the resources of
Cariboo, they were too well understood
already. Those who had advocated representation by population were mostly
gentlemen who had not been long in
the country. He did not think the
Mainland would suffer by this bill at
all; it gets a very fair share of the revenue. Some had thought thnt a preponderance of representation on the
Mainland would result iu the removal
of the seat of capital from Victoria. But
Victoria was the proper place for the
capital and would never be changed, at
least in our time, and why should it?
(Hear, hear.)
Mr. Haslam said that he had been
sorry to see hon. members getting up on
the floor of the House and charging
amid statistics so as to reflect with credit
on Westminater City and to the discredit
of Nanaimo. All he could say waa that
there were more single men in Nanaimo
than in Westminster. This was proved
by the school registers. (Laughter). He
thought it a pity that the present bill
had been brought up at the present time,
Still in his opinion lie thought the ratio
of representation should not be changed.
The charge made by the Opposition that
the supporters of the Government had
no sense and would not know how to use
it if thoy had was a direct reflection on
tlie voters of British Columbia. Under
the circumstances, in view of the scarcity
of members of the Opposition, it waB
almost cowardly to make remarks of any
severity upon them, but lie felt that considering what thoy had said that day he
must say something.
Mr. Martin enthusiastically eulogised
Cariboo and its inexhaustible wealth.
He also contributed hia share to picking
to pieces the arguments of the •Opposition.
Hon. Mr. Pooley said that tho measure that had been introduced by the
Government was one of tho beat for the
occasion. It had not been brought forward in haste. (Mr, Semlin, sarcastically, "no, oh no!") The honorable
member for Westminster City had been
one of those who had displayed the
most sectionalism that evening. His
views were too narrow, too confined aud
circumscribed bv tho little circle which
surrounded Westminster City. The
honorable member for Westminster District (Mr. Ladner) had drawn up a schedule which gave Westminster District
nine members. Nine members taken
right out of the entire mainland membership aud set down tu Westminster
District. If this did not show the grossest kind of sectionalism ho failed to
find another name for it that described
it better. The remarks of tho honorable
gentleman then dealt largely with the
remarks made by the members tor Westminster City ana District.
Hon. Mr, T.urner spoke shortly in the
measure. Ho commented heavily on
sectionalism introduced into the debate
by the honorable members for Welt-
minster City and District.
Mr. Croft made a few remarks upon
tho bill.
Hon. Mr. Vernon said Mr. Croft had
fully expressed his views in the matter
in condemning tho sectional spirit
brought into the discussion by the members opposite. This had been done
purely for the purpose of its possible
effect at the elections.

REDISTRIBUTION THAT DOES NOT
REDISTRIBUTE.
Taking the last officml figures, which
do not make the cuse for this district as
strong as it really is, we find that the
number of voters per member—taking
the whole country—is almost exactly
607. The members of tho present House,
then, represent the people, according to
the following table:

That is to say, the under-represented
constituencies lend to the rest of the
Province nearly 0,000 voters, and of
Hie_e, New Westminster (that is, City
and District, including Vancouver) lends
over 4,000, or more than two-thirds.
Now, let us see how the Redistribution Bill proposes to deal with this state
of things. Vancouver City is taken out
of Westminster District and given two
members, leaving the District with
trifle less than the average per member,
and putting tho new constituency of
Vancouver City in the position of the
most under-represented constituency in
the Province. Westminster City, which
after the District, had the next best
claim to an increase, iB left as it waB,
but a new member iB given to the
voters of Kootenay. Kootenay, undoubtedly, has a much better right to a new
member than Lillooet, Cariboo, CasBlar,
Comox, Esquimalt, or Victoria District
to retain the members they have; but as
the City of Westminster has nearly
three votes to its one, it is difficult to
see why it was increased while this City
was passed over. That is as nothing,
however, to the barefaced way in which
things have been done on the Island. Nanaimo, which was slightly
under-represented has been gerrymandered into three constituencies with four
members, and Cowichan, already heavily
over-represented, has been divided so aa
to havo yet another member (the gulf
islands being virtually a part of Cowichan I)
But after all, it may well be asked,
of what use is it to produce these figures?
Thero is a certain ring which has ruled
thiB Province in the past, and which is
determined, it possible, to rule it for all
time to come, and that ring has decided
at b11 hazards to maintain the "balance of
power." The peoplo of the Province
outside that ring must determine
whether they will bo free men or slaves.
The absurd pretension stands only by
the force of its own impudence—can
stand only so long as we are weak
enough to abstain from toppling it over.
Of course, while citing the figures
we have, and making the almost obvious
deductions therefrom, we do not advocate—what is impossible in this, or perhaps in any country—a hard and
fast system of representation by popu>
lation. Other considerations must
have due weight, such ns number, importance and diversity of
interests, extent of area, and distance
from the capital. Kootenay, for instance, with Its large extent of territory
and diverse interests, is fairly entitled
to be divided into two districts with an
increase of representation, and Cariboo
with its special needs, its large area,
and its distance from the capital, may
well claim special consideration; but no
excuse can be found for the barefaced
over-representation on the Island, This
sectional line must In broken, and the
mischievous and outrageous theory of
the "balance of power" relegated to the
rubbish heap. Not till then will justice
bo done to the Province as a whole, and
not till then will the Province have
peace from scctionalistic strife.
INTOXICANTS AND REVENUE.
of these three points in the Chancellor's
annual statement.
The main feature of interest, however,
centres In the figures which Mr. Goschen
gave to the House relating to the revenue derived from alcoholic beverages.
Ur. Smith In one of his books ("Thrift,!'
we think) points out that, often, increased national prosperity means an
increased consumption ot stimulants,
Mr. GoBchen's figures verify this view.
Towards the middle and end of the
financial year it became apparent that
the wave of trade depression which had
so long paralysed British commerce was
rapidly giving place to more prosperous
times, and In proportion as the buoyancy
and confidence increased bo the revenue
from the liquor traffic showed a perceptibly upward tendency. The gross revenue derived from this one source during
the year amounted to £29,2-5,000, the
Chancellor calling attention to the fact
that In 1875-0a very similar state of affairs
existed, the liquor revenue during that
time showing a wonderful elasticity.
This amount can only be termed enormous, and, however satisfactory it must
be for a finance minister to have so
great a sum at his disposal, it certainly
is a matter for regret that the hope Indulged in during very recent years, that
the decrease of the revenue from Intoxicants was a sign of the growth of abstinence principles, has but a poor foundation, but that, on the other hand, the
lack of money was the cause of the lack
of drinking, and that the moment the
country awoke from its lethargy of
trade depression, its people gave their
orders to the brewers.
Mr. Goschen, we notice, wlll favor reducing the duty on beer, a proposal likely to be opposed, as it is apparent that
the increased duty placed In that article
last year has had no injurious effect
upon the dealers by lessening their
sales. Iu fact, In spite of increased
duty, the actual revenue derived from
beer exceeded the estimated revenue by
£270,000, whilst the drink revenue complete exceeded the estimated revenue
by £1,800,000. It iB curious and instructive, although not altogether satisfactory, to note that the duties on coffee, cocoa and chicory decreased by £17,-
600, but a course for congratulation iB to
be found in the fact that the revenue
from tea showed an increase of the substantial sum of £40,000. Taken altogether, the figures of the English budget are satisfactory, as an unmistakable
indication of increased material prosperity, but it is questionable whether
the same can be said about them as far
as they point in the direction of higher
morality. ^^^^^^^^^
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
' Ir there is one man more than another
In Great Britain who can make popular
Tory financing,, it ia tho present Chancellor of the Exchequer. Excepting
Mr, Gladstone he is to-day tho most
competent master of figures in the
House of Commons. A member of the
banking firm of Frupllng & Goschen,
his wide practical experience ol finance
has pre-eminently fitted him for the
position ho holds, and his work. "The
Theory of Foreign Exchange," Is probably the masterpiece of authorship upon
the particular subject of which it treats,
Mr. Goschen is of Jewish descent, and
appears to possess in a more than ordinary degree that aptitude for finance sc
characteristic of the race from whioh he
springs. His enemies, indeed, aver
that his "financing" of the Egyptian
loan, was mere barefaced usury, whilst
Mr. Gladstone found it absolutely necessary in 1888 and 1889 to oppose Mr. Goschen in regard to the latter _ proposals
In dealing with death duties. Mr. Goschen, however, earned the applause of
all parties by his scheme for reduolng
(he interest on the national debt, and
probably his lesser mistakes, like thoso
of the late Sir Stafford Northcote, may
be put down to his forsaking the sound
financial teachings of the school of Peel
and Gladstone for tho more brilliant
juggling, misnamed finance, of Benjamin D'Israell,
The chief provisions of Mr. Goschen's
financial statement recently made are a
reduction of the tax on tea, a foreign
spirit tax, both good measures, and
postage reduction, which will be vastly
popular. The full particulars of these
particular items are not as yet before
us, but enough Is known to ensure a
liberal approval to tho main principles
The young English lady journalist to
whose case reference was recently made
in these columns, has scored n point on
behalf of her demand for the admission
of ladies to the reporters' gallery of tho
British House of Commons in the admission elicited by Mr. Bradlaugh from
the Speaker that there exists no law or
order against the admission of women
to the gallery. Since Bhe so pluckily
raised the question, the lady has received four requests, it is said, for " inter-
"views" in the interest of other journals, one request for ber portrait for
publication, and one offer of marriage.
According to the records of the Signal
Service Office there have been 1,420
tornadoes in the United States in the
past ton years. Lieut. Finlay, one of
the experts of the office, ia inclined to
believe that theso storms have "periods
" of maximum occurrence alternating
with those of minimum occmronce,"
and that their cycle corresponds with
the sun-spot period. The last maximum was in 1884, in February of which
year no less than sixty tornadoes took
place in ono day. It is supposed that
the present Is a minimum period, and
that in a few years there will be a great
increase in the number of these visitations. This is notcheeringlnformation,
especially after a tornado which wrought
so great destruction at Louisville.
General Laurie, M. P., for Shelbuine,
N. S., has received telegrams from the
Conservative Association in Halifax demanding explanations with respect to
his conduct in collecting travelling expenses from London, England, to Ottawa
and back, under the pretext that he
lives in London now. The General says
he has no explanation to mako; that he
lives in London, that he intends to return to London as Boon as the session is
over, and that he has done nothing
wrong in taking travelling fees from
London. It is also Insinuated that the
General used his influence as a member
of Parliament supporting the Government to secure-more remuneration for
his services in connection with the
Northwest rebellion than he was fairly
entitled to.

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 the Langley Road, the Yale Road, and, the Clover
Valley Road, within 500 yards of the proposed station of the New
Westminster Southern Railway. The land is high and dry, and
the soil is first-class. Surrey is one of the most prosperous sections of the District of New Westminster, and is at present enjoy-
ing quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this property will get the value of their money in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at the same time promises an excellent
field for speculation.
NORTH  ARM.
146 acres in Lot 166, near the North Arm Road,
about 2 1-2 miles west of the New Westminster City
Post-office, at $160 per aore.
This is lino fertile soil, chiefly prairie, and lies well. It
has bocoine a maxim that cities grow westward, and New West
minster is proving no exception to the rule. City lots west of
Edinburgh Street, along the North Arm road, have doubled in
value in less than a year, while acre tracts have, in the same
time, in some instances more than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to the Westerly Oity Boundary is
completed, the North Arm will become the best suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expected by many that
the route of the Electric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
section. Our shrewdest speculators are realizing the possibilities
of this portion of the City, and the many sales of acre property
in the vicinity reoently, indicate that land in the direction of the
North Arm is looked upon as one of the best places for investment in the District.   Prices are bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of
Oity and Suburban Property, at moderate prices and
on favorable terms, of whioh we invite examination.

A ROW IN THE LOBBY.
Detailed   Account    of   the    Rencontre
Between General Laurie end
Hr. McMullen.
Our Ottawa correspondent sends ub
tbe following rather interesting account
of the personal encounter noted in the
despatches lately, that took place In the
lobby of the House of Commons, between General Laurie, a former D. A. G.
of this Province and present M. P. for
Shelbourne, IN. S., and Mr. McMullen,
M. P. for North Wellington, Ont:
Soon after the House opened on the
day in question General Laurie rose to
a question of privilege, with a copy of
the Globe in hiB hand.
He read from that sheet a statement
that, being a supposed resident in Nova
Scotia, he had charged mileage to and
from London, Englad, 10c a mile, total
$820. Tlie statement commented on the
unusual character of the transaction,
and asked whether the Genoral was
really resident in London, Eng., or in
Nova Scotia, and whether, in the former
case, he intended to continue to reside
in England and at the same time sit in
the parliament of the Dominion, and
charge $600 every time he came across
to attend the session. For family and
personal reasons which he did not feel
called upon to explain to the House of
Commons, he had removed his family
from his home in Nova Scotia to England. He had done everything in Ins
power to get spared for this session, but
failed. When the time came for the reassembling of parliament, consequently,
he was obliged to attend for the performance of his parliamentary duties.
When he went for his mileage the
question of his change of residence to
England came up. He could not, of
course, say he was resident in Nova
Scotia when aB a matter of fact he had
removed to London, Eng.. and this
necessitated a declaration of change of
residence, and the mileage was calculated by the accountant in the ubuuI way,
and paid him. He had no fault to find
with the manner in which the Qlobe had
stated the facts, and fully intended making the statement earlier but had been
prevented by hia failure to find the file
of the Montreal Herald, which he under'
stood also contained a similar report.
Mr. McMullen then rose and waB
greeted with shouts of "order, order,'
"You're out of order." He, nevertheless, stood up and attempted to make
himself heard. Speaking sharply and
in a tone unusual between members,
and addressing himself personally to
the general, instead of the speaker, he
said: "Igave you notice privately I
was going to bring this matter before
the House, and that's the reason you
have brought it up now."
General Laurie, with an appearance
of warmth, flatly contradicted the insinuation that he had only brought up
the question of privilege under the
pressure of Mr. McMullen's threat, and
asserted again that he would have made
the statement the previous afternoon
had the file of the Montreal Herald not
been taken way. He did not think it
right that McMullen Bhould address such
remarks to the House.
Mr. McMullen rose with an exhibition
of considerable temper, but tha shout of
"order, order," instantly raised, caused
him to resume his Beat.
Dr. Landerkin rose and was called to
order, the noise being almost deafening.
He was heard to Bay, however, that he
had simply risen to auk—
Another shout drowned his voice.
The speaker interposed. He said the
order of business must be observed.
There had been to much irregularity
already,
Dr. Landerkin again endeavored to
make himself heard. He said he was
only about to observe—
Such a manifestation of the determination of the House to have order took
place that he dropped back into his
chair amid roars of laughter.
BBNCONTHE IN  TUB LOBBY.
Shortly afterwards General Laurie
and Mr. McMullen met in the lobby and
exchanged hostilities. Mr. McMullen
again reminded the general of the fact
that he had given him notice of his intention to bring tho mileage matter before the House, and upbraided him witli
having adopted the course he had done
in order to prevent his carrying out that
intention.
The General looked wrathfully at Mr.
McMullen and simply ejaculated:
" You are a scoundrel, sir."
Mr. McMullen, whatever his faults
rnay.be in the eyes of members who are
obliged to listen to his speeches and
have no admiration for them, does not
appear to be a paltroon. He met the
General's angry aspect with an unquail-
Ing glance and hissed back in a voice
more rasping than ever:
" And you are a sneak."
General Laurie measured the tall stature and sinewy form of the member
from North Wellington with his eye,
and said with soldierly simplicity and
frankness;
" You are an infernal scoundrel, sir!"
Mr. McMullen, whose composure was
considerably ruffled by this addition of
an adjective to the epithet previously
applied, responded unhesitatingly:
" And you are an infernal sneak,
sir!"
. Then General Laurie remarked, with
an access of severity in his tones, " I've
a good mind to kick you."
Close to the General was Mr. Bowell,
the Minister of Customs. The by-stand-
ers say they heard him say to the warrior, " Yes, kick him, General."
Mr.  McMullen, surveying the two
Sentlemen scornfully, flung back with
isdain the retort, " You can't do it,
either of you or both."
At this excessively interesting juncture. Dr. Landerkin, who waB coming
up the lobby and overheard part of the
conversation, instantly made for his
colleague, hooked him by the arm and
led him off, the two Grits disappearing
in one direction and the two ministerialists in the other.
The two gentlemen occupied their
seats in the House within a few feet of
each other until two o'clock next morning, but fortunately nothing further
occurred of an exasperating nature between them.

Our beautiful city is dormant no longer, its long silence has
suddenly ended, and it now ranks foremost among the cities of
the Pacific Coast; its wealth and population have increased at a
remarkable rate.
In 1888 the total value of taxable property in the city limits
was hardly $1,000,000, while to-day it aggregates nearly $5,000,000.
In 1887 the population was 3,000, now it is over 8,000.
The City Council has undertaken immense public works, and
a large number of public and private buildings are under construction.
The city is now the Fresh Water Terminus of the Canadian
Pacific, and by the first of July next it will be connected by the
New Westminster Southern with the great American transcontinental routes.
Noting all the foregoing facts New Westminster's future prosperity is assured, and no other city in the Province offers such
splendid inducements to investors.
Our lists of city and district property are complete. Call and
see us.   Correspondence solicited. *

The Contract Finished.
Mr. T. F. Sinclair's contract for the
Improvement of the channel at the
mouth of the river waa finiihcd on Bat*
unlay, when the last mattress waa laid.
8ince beginning work a few weeks ago
Mr. Sinclair haa laid 26 mattresses-
extending in a line more than two
thousand feet. The work has been done
to the entire satisfaction of the Government engineer, and is expected to bear
excellent results in its effect upon the
channel across the Sandheads. The
mattresses were built near Ewens can*
nery and the stone for sinking and anchoring them waa brought from the Pitt
lake quarries.

Snagging Operations.
The Government steamer Samson,
Capt. Robinson in command, will leave
for up river to-morrow morning to begin
snagging operations forthe season. The
river is now as low aa it will be this year,
and it is expected good work will be
done before high  water season.   The
channel is said to be in a dangerous con-   __„ „ ....
ditlon at many points owing to logs and \am\ Association,
illation and importance of some of the
Mainland constituencies against some of
the Island constituencies, which showed
clearly that the new measure was going
to be an injury to the Mainland. It
was stated tnat one of the chief factors
here in Hon. John Robson's last election
was that he would bring or try to get
proper re-diatribution j it waa expected
then that he meant on a square oasis.
Moved by Mr. Webster, seconded by
Mr. Murray, that this meeting viewa
with alarm the Bill to amend the constitution act now before the legislature.
The injustice proposed iu that Bill is
quite apparent, its provisions are based
neither on representation by population
nor territorial importance. This meeting therefore resolves that the Government, if the proposed bill becomes law,
is unworthy of the confidence and support of the electors of Maple Ridge.
Carried unanimously.
It waB moved and seconded that the
secretary send a copy of the proceedings
of this meeting to the three members
for the district, also to the Westminster
and Vancouver newspapers, the "Victoria
Colonist and the secretary of the Main-

in the neighborhood, and real property
generally ib in good demand, unimproved, lightly timbered land bringing about
$20 per acre. The purchasers are principally new coiners from tho eastern
provinces, who are buying with a view
to carrying on farming, and not for
speculative purposes. A gentleman of

THE DELEGATION.
Third Redistribution BUI Will be Delayed Until Wednesday—Now for a
Good Btrong Delegation.
Mayor Brown, president of the Mainland Association, has received a letter
from the Premier stating that the third
reading of the Redistribution Bill will
probably be delayed until Wednesday,
and that "the executive will, of course,
be glad to receive the deputation" from
the Mainland. The Mainland delegation will be composed of representatives
from all the branches of the Mainland
Association and of citizens' deputations
from this City, Vancouver and every
muicipality and settlement in the District. Tho Boards of Trade of Vancouver and Westminster have also been invited, and will probably take part. The
occasion is one which demands
the -strongest possible popular demonstration, and protest, aud every
patriotic citizen, who can arrange to do
so, Bhould dwell the numbers uf the
delegation, and by his presence in the
Legislature hulls ut Victoria, help to
emphasize the fact that the Mainland
resents the injustice which is embodied
in the Redistribution Bill, nnd is determined to have its rights.
THE CRIME TRACED.
Tbe    Murderer   of   the     Old    Indian
Woman at   Langley Cleverly
Traced.
Mr. W. Moresby returned on Saturday
from Langely, bringing with him a half-
breed named George Roberts, who was
implicated in the murder of Slocum, an
old Indian woman, the particulars of
which were published in The Columbian last week. Mr. Moresby spent
three days in the vicinity of where the
murder was committed, und bo diligently and cleverly did he work that he
ib now in possession of evidence, which
is almost certain to place the crime on
the shoulders of the guilty party or
parties, both of whom are now under
urruBt. Roberts and Houston, the men
now charged with the crime, were enjoying a drunken apree, and one of them
is supposed to have murderod the old woman while they were under the influence
of liquor. How the murder waB committed will come out in the evidence.
Since the murder Roberts boasted
openly to his tillicttms of having u knowledge of the crime, and hia actions also
led to the conclusion that he knew more
about it than he wanted to tell. The
cuse will be first heard on Thursday
next.       ^^^^^^^^^

A Fast Steamer.
The new steamer Delawure has had
her machinery put in perfect order, and
has taken her place on the route between this City and Chilliwack. On
one trip last week ahe made the very
satisfactory speed of 18 miles an hour.
The Delaware is fitted with tandem,
compound, non-condensing engines—a
now idea on thiB coast for stern-wheel
making 20 revolutions per minute. Mr.T.
tiowen.of Seattle, made the plans for the
Delaware's machinery,which was made
to order at one of the Vancouver foundries
last year. When completed last fall, it
will he remembered, the engines did not
work satisfactorily, and they have just
been reconstructed and put In first-class
condition at Reid A Carrie's foundry
and machine shops, In this city, under
the personal superintendence of Mr. S,
T. Gowen, jr. The owners of the new
steamer, among whom are Captain A.
Insley, Mathers A Milligan, Mr. B.
Douglas, and others, are to be congratulated on possessing one of tbo neatest
and fastest steamers on the river, and
one which is sure to be a popular carrier

Maple nidge Gallantly Backs the Aot Ion
of the Mainland Association.
A meeting of the Maple Ridge branch
of the Mainland Association wub held in
the Town Hall on Saturday evening,
19th inst., for the purpose of considering
what action Bhould be taken in regard
to the redistribution bill now before the
House.
Mr. W. J. Harris having attended the
meeting held at New Westminster on
Friday evening, read the resolutions
pUBsed at that meeting. Mr. Harris
stated the meeting waa a very representative one and unanimous in their
actions.
Mr, McKenney said lie thought the
resolutions passed at WeBtminBter could
not be bettered and was in favor of
adopting them.
Mr. Webster could not see that the
Government were trying to frame measures that were fair. If this bill passed
we shall bo worse off than before, and if
the Government carry the bill through,
none of their supporters need try Maple
Ridge for a vote.
These remarks appeared to be the
feeling of all present.
It was moved by Mr. A. Docksteader,
seconded by Mr. McKinny, that this
meeting adopt the resolutions passed at
Westminster,
Several present spoke on the motion,
and all were desirous that it should pass
unanimously. Carried without a dissenting voice.
A member contrasted the voting pop-
The meeting adjourned till Monday
evening when a public meeting will be
held at 7:30 o'clock.	
THE NORTH ARM BRIDGES.
Mr. Cunningham Moves tbe Adoption
of tbe Committee's Report,—A Lively
Spat   In   tbe House   on   the   Subject.
Mr. Cunningham, on Friday last,
moved the adoption of the report on the
North Arm bridges. The report being
very short, he proposed to offer a few
explanations. The committee hud been
formed at his recommendation und the
sequel bus shown thut this was the proper course to take. The committee had
been compelled to visit the bridge personally bo ub to arrive at proper conclusions. He for one had desired that the
Government should receive the fullest
consideration ut the hands of the Sun
Francisco Bridge Co., and the investigation had been of the most thorough
character and the report in every particular fair. The foreman of the work
is mainly responsible for the poor quality of the construction. Very properly
he hud been promptly discharged. But
in view of the information thrown upon
the matter by Beverul letters which he
then reud, he thought the fuss made
over the bridge, excessive. The bridge
company was undoubtedly not to blame
and they had done all in their power to
rectify the damage and bud work by repairing the bridge at their own expense.
The settlers of the locality had exhibited an extraordinury apathy during the
construction of the bridge and had allowed the building to go on uninterruptedly, although some of the most notorious breaches of building rules were
committed under their very noses. Hostility rather than indifference had marked the attitude of these settlers on this
question and they certainly hud not displayed much gratitude to the Government which had done so much for them,
and exerted itself to benefit their interests in every particular.
Mr. Ladner said he never saw a worse
piece of work than these bridges passed
Irom the hand of man. The hon. gentleman related several instances which had
happened during the progress of construction and bo gross ana stupid and
lacking in common-sense were these
pieces of work that the hon., the premier, received their recital with ejaculations of incredulity. One of thoso pretty
specimens of bridge-building science was
t lie driving of piles too far into the mud
und hauling them up to the level und
laying the timbers or else putting
another piece of timber on top of the
pile to bring it level. The pulling up
operation was the more frequent of the
two. The hon. gentleman then gave
voluminous details from evidence,
Hon. Mr. Davie rose to a point of
order and wanted to know whether this
resolution was in order or not, In this
report, which he read, there waa no
suggestion of anything. When a report
ou any subject came before the House
there was an end of the matter; the
House either adopted the resolution or
did not adopt it. But in this case there
wau absolutely nothing to adopt.
Hon. Mr. Beaven was not slow wltb
another point of order and for about
fifteen subsequent minutes the air teemed with points of. order, questions of
privilege and .points of explanation.
Membevs rose to their feet in twos and
threes and clamored for hearing. Ponderous tones of the law were massed en
batterie, positions stormed and rhetorical premises carried camp de main. The
governmental generals attempted to
carry the war into the Opposition
trenches, but tho honorable leader of the
Opposition rallied around him, his army
corps, battalions and divisions and repulsed the assault with astounding vigor.
The voice of the Attorney-General could
bo hear above the frenzied uproar and
hts battle-cry of ''constitutionality" wub
the Government slogan. There were
mighty things done in the fray, und
every man was a hero in the strifo.
" Groom fought like earl.
Squlro like knight,
At. nobly and ns well."
At length the acrimony of the campaign reached Its climax when the lion,
leader of Opposition said, "The Attorney-
General may be able to bull-doze the
judges iu the court, but he can't do it
here."
Hon, Mr, Davie—" Such language is
beneath contempt."
At this point the voice of the choir
was heard in the hall. Mr. Speaker had
been vainly trying to moke himself
heard above the hubbub, but his patience deserted him at the stage noted
above and he asserted himself in a man'
iter thut soon stilled the tumultuous
proceedings. Mr. Speaker ruled that
the debate wub in order, but on being
put to a vote the ruling of the chair was
negatived by 10 votes to 0.

The Beat Catch.
The sealing schooner E. B. Marvin of
this port was spokon outside Cape Flat,
tery yesterday by the tug Lome, and by
the courtesy of Capt. Christiansen, a
letter from Capt. McKlel, of the Marvin
was brought in to Capt J. G. Cox. Captain McKiel writes that all the hunters
and crew of the schooner aro well, and
although the weather has been terribly
rough the hunters have worked ham,
300 seals having been captured bo far.
It will be remembered that the E. B.
Marvin, formerly tbe Molllo Adams, was
purchased by a syndicate last fall, most
of the purchasers being young men engaged in seal hunting. Owning as the)
do a share in the vessel, it Is to be hoped
their good fortune may continue. At

A bill ho. been introduced into the
Dominion Parliament for the removal
of the modus Vivendi with respect to
fisheries. The text of it is as follows:
"Tho Gov-rno.-Uoiu.ral in council may
authorize the issue of licenses to the
Ashing vessels of the United States of
America enabling them to enter any
port in tho Dominion of Canada during
the calendar year 1890 for the following
purposes! (a) The purchase of bait,
ice seines, lines and alt other supplies,
and outfits; (b) the transhipment of
catch and the shipping of crews. The
feos for such licenses and the terms and
conditions thereof shall be determined
by the Governor-General in council.
All licenses issued by tho Government
of Newfoundland for similar purposes
to those granted by the licenses under
this act shall be valid in Canadian ports,
wherever licenses issued by the Dominion of Canada shall bo valid for such
purposes in the ports of Newfoundland."
Tho modus vlvendi will differ from the
old in two particulars. Formerly the
license fee was fixed lit (U.50 a ton.
The clause with reference to Newfoundland fishing licenses was not in the old
modus vlvendi at all.
