Something Like Appropriation!..
Washinoton, April 17.—Ono million
dollars is appropriated for improving the
Columbia River in a bill just completed
by tbe River and Harbor Committee of
the House. This amount includes the
sum of |500,000 allowed for a continuance
of the jetty work $t tlie mouth of tbe
river. For Coos Bay it is understood
tbat $120,000, will be appropriated,
and $600,000 is allowed to commence
work on tbe jetty ut Suislaw Bay.
For continuing .work at the mouth
of tlie Coquelle River $30,000 is allowed,
and $10,000 to commence'Work ortaqwly
ut the mouth of Nepalen Bay; to Improve
the Upper Willamette above Portland
$12,000 is appropriated, and $10,000 is
allowed for dredging at Tillamook Bay.
Aid From B. C.
San Fhancisco, April 17.—Tbe striking iron moulders received $200 from
the Moulders' Union of British Columbia last night.
Sliver Appreciating.
Nbw York, April 17.—There bas beeu
a sharp advance in the silver bullion
market iu tbe past two days, based
upon the expectation tbat tbe silver
measure now before congress will become law, and that tbo purchases to be
made under the act, together with the
requirements for tbe arts will absorb
the output of American mines, leaving
the European market dependent for its
forty millions worth upon the product
of Mexican and other foreign mines.
A  Great  Strike.
Nashua, N. H., April 17.—The ex-
pected strike of employees of Jackson A
Co's. mills 'occurred this morning, the
weavers, spinners and help all going
out. Tbe mills arc shut down, but
for how long is not known; 800 bands
are but. They will be paid off on Satin day. The weavers marched through
the street and then quietly went home.
The demands is for an increase in wages.
Killed Bin Brother.
Nbw Yobk, April 17.—Tbe Herald's
special from Bichardtown, North Dakota,
says: A sensational tragedy occurred at
noon to-day at the county residence of
O. P. Ziner, of Stark county. Albert
Zlner entered the house of his brother
and insulted the tatter's wife, whereupon O. P. Ziner seized a shot gun and
literally blew his brother's head off.
Albert died almost instantly, and the
brother was arrested. A great crowd
gathered at tbe jail at nightfall and it is
feared the prisoner will be lynched.
The sheriff is powerless to withstand the
mob and has no opportunity to spirit his
prisoner away.
American Prlion Life.
New York, April 17.—The Herald's
Chicago special says: Thomas Brod-
erlck, tbe Burlington engineer who was
sent to Joliet for engaging in tbe famous
dynamite plot to cripple tbo Chicago,
Burlington A Quincy Railroad, has been
.pardoned by the Governor. Some of
the experiences of his prison life as re-
j-latt' by him are surprising, and though
he will not give names or specifications,
he Bays that at least two of the Anarchist prisoners now there, Oscar Neebe,
sentenced for 15 years ana Samuel Field-
en, life convict, are most inhumanly
treated. "I saw much at the prison
while I was there," said Broderick today, "that calls for investigation and reform. If a prisoner shows nerve and fortitude under Buffeting, it is sure
to bring on hiB bead increased punishment from his keeper and guard. The
most glaring instances of this fact I saw
were in the cases of Fielden and Neebe.
Fielden, the English anarchist, has
most marked fortitude, and faces his
dreary fate with wonderful patience
and resignation. This has called down
upon him tbo hatred of his guard, and I
have frequently seen the unfortunate
man treated with great cruelty. One
day I saw him chained to the wall for
several hours, and during that time all
sorts of epithets were directed towards
him by the guards, and he was abused
aa though he had been the worst conv ict
in the prison, instead of one of the best.
Neebe was treated no better. The
guards and attendants don't seem to
regard them as equals of the other convicts. I am going to agitate for a legislative commission to look into tho management of tbe prisons. These two an*
archistB are punished on the slightest
Sretext. Since hts release, Broderick
as been lionized by tho labor men of
all classes and shades of opinion, by
whom he is looked upon somewhat in
the light of a hero. A movement has
been set on foot in Labor circles to get
up a handsome purse and testimonial
for him.    	
Dana to print his lying statements.regarding myself, but it is infinitely more
cowardly and dastardly for him to include, as he has done, my wife in his
attacks. Nothing could be more contemptible or far removed from all instincts of manhood." Cleveland spoke
with-considerable feeling. There was
no language, he said, strong enough to
characterize the conduct of such a man.
If Dana was not in his dotage, with one
foot in the grave, his senile ravings
would attract more attention. The
public is disposed to look with some
leniency upon a man who has paresis.
SleamihlpB Collide.
Shields, April 17.—The British
steamers Euclid and Attire collided
near Hartlepool and the Euclid sank.
The captain and three of the crew were
drowned. She was nn iron screw
steamer of 1,545 tons, owned in Aberdeen. Tbe Attire bas arrived here with
her bow stove in.
More 8t.nnat.tn...
London, April 17.—Alice Hairs, a
young woman of 20 years of age, has
brought au action for seduction and
breach of promise of marriage against
Sir Geo. Elliott. M.P. for Monmouth,
Wales. Tbe lady alleges she has been
enciente by Sir George, and that after
her betrayal the defendant promised
marriage. Elliott denies the truth of
the allegations, and asserts that the
action is an attempt at blackmail. The
proceedings in the case nre creating
most intense excitement in social and
political circles,
A Perfect ltascnl.
Liverpool, April 17.—On Tuesday of
laBt week Wm. Henry Hopkinson, residing at Mill Lane; Lincoln, told bis
wifo he was going to Manchester on
business. Mrs. Hopkinson, being suspicious, searched the house and found
some compromising letters, upon which
Bhe started for Liverpool and found her
husband on the steamer Germanic, in
company with a girl named Murphy, 24
years of age. He refused to return
home aud the guilty pair sailed away.
Hopkinson leaves his wife and three
children in Lincoln.
Imperial Palace llurned.
St. Petersburg, April 17.—Fire has
destroyed the Imperial Palace at Orani-
eubauiu. Seven domestics were burned
to death. Oranieubaum is about twenty
miles west of St. Petersburg.
A Terrible Tale.
Moscow, April 17.—The city is shocked hy the discovery of the self-annihilation of a whole family to escape the sufferings of poverty. The victims were
the widow and five daughters of an army
officer. They locked themselves in a
room and turned on tbe gas. When
discovered all were dead from suffoca-
tion.  !
Ottawa Notea.
Ottawa, April 16.—In the House today, Speaker Ouimet, announced the
issue of a writ for the election at New
Westminster to fill the vacancy caused
by the death of the lato Mr. Chisholm.
Sheriff Armstrong is appointed Returning Officer.
The Fisheries report shows that the
fish product of Canada last year was
valued at $17,055,256, an increase of
$236,745 over that of the previous year.
This increase includes British Columbia,
$1,442,572. The value of the fisheries of
the several Provinces Ib as follows:
British Columbia, $2,348,087; Nova
Scotia, $6, 346,722; New Brunswick,
$3,067,030. This is exclusive of tbe consumption by Indians, given at $3,357,500.
The principle decline is in cod ou the
Atlantic coast. The returns from tbe
Pacific Province show nn enormous increase of nearly $1,500,000, due to the
unprecedented run of salmon iu the
Eraser River, where the peek reached
13,780.850 lbs. The yield of salmon on
the Skeena and Naas rivers was also
large. It is scarcely possible that this
phenomenal catch can be maintained,
and it has beon deemed expedient to
limit the number of licenses to 500.
Peaceful Meant res.
San Fuancisco, April 10.—The Bulletin this evening says: "The despatch
of the United States steamer Alert to
Behring Sea with a ciew large enough
to effectiuely man the captured sealers
seems as though either no agreement is
probable in the negotiation now going
on at Washington, or that some contusions in accordance with our claims has
been or is likely to be reached."
Tbe Post says: "The orders to fit tbe
man-of-war Alert for service in Beh-
rig Sea this summer are timely, and
demonstrate that the Government fully
intends to give adequate protection to
the seating preserves, as Bhe is immeasurably superior to the Rush and
others that have gone on before. Tbe
protection will be greater than ever.'
PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.
Tuesday's Proceeding! Cuntlnued.
The House went -into committee on
the resolution to amend the Mineral
Act, Mr. Croft in the Chair. The resolutions were as follow:
1. That section 75 of the Mineral Act
he amended by adding thereto tlie following Bub-section:
"(2). If the claim applied for it is situated within that portion of tbe Province
through which the Canadian Pacific
railway runs, aud which lias been
granted to the Dominion Government,
and hereinafter referred to as the railway belt, tbe claimant must, together
with his application, deposit the sum of
one hundred and five dollars, which
will ho applied by tlie Provincial Government, in obtaining a grant of tho
freehold from the Dominion Government, hut will not entitle the (.hum-
holder to such freehold, unless he completes his title thereto whilst he is the
lawful holder of the claim, under tlie
provisions of section 88 of this act."
2. That section 85 of the said act be
repealed, and in lieu thereof be it enacted :
"85. Any free miner having lawfully
,ilw
Here arc my estimates and the country must abide by them." If tbe lives
and property of the people were threatened by any danger that might be averted by prompt action oh the part of the
Government, Hou. Mr. Beaven, we
must' presume, would say: "I cannot
help that; there is nothing down on the
estimates for such a purpose. The people must take care of themselves. Per-
iiaps at next session I can put something
on for them if tbey are not all killed off
by that time; and if they are, why it's
bad, but cannot be helped; my estimates
must 1m respected." Neither, on the
other bund, would that hon. gentleman
dare to take advantage of an opportunity
to odd to the revenue, for fear of disturbing bis calculations made a year before.
If that was the sort of Government approved of by the leader of the Opposition, and he virtually so stated, then he
(Hon. Mr. Turner) would Bay in the
expressive words of tho attorney-general: "The Lord preserve the couutry
from such Government."
Hon. Mr. Beaven dwelt at some
length on the serious difference between
the finance minister's estimates of receipts and expenditures last year and
the actual results, contending that the
minister had previously bungled, i

Nbw Yobk, April 17.—A World reporter interviewed Mr. Cleveland to-day in
reference to the Sun's statement that he
was under .medical treatment for corpulency. The ox-president's appearance
certainly did not bear out the statement
tbat he is rapidly increasing in weight.
If anything, be weighs less now than
when he left tbe White House, and his
face baa a very healthy color.   "I have
not," Bald Mr, Cleveland, "Been the article you refer to.  Of course tbe entire
thing is without tlie least pretext to excuse it.   I judge from wbat you say
that the venerable editor of the Sun
supposes   that   he   has   at last hit
upon a subject which   can be used
to annoy me.   In this he is mistaken,
He must be his own judge of social decencies and proprieties.   I am not sure
that be should at thiB time of life and in
hiB apparently peculiar mental condition
be    molested    In   his   amusement.
I   do  not   care  how   much   I  am
critized for my public  acts;   that  Ib
perfectly legitimate.   There is a line.
however, it seems to me where criticism
and abuse should stop.   The man who
invades the privacy of a family and indulges in coarse and wanton attacks on
private citizens Is no better than a highwayman. He places himself on the level
of a blackguard, aud his vulgarities can
havo no weight with decent people."
Regarding the frequent personal attacks
upon himself in the columns of the Sun,
Cleveland said, that while he never saw
them, every time one appeared, a dozen
cranks, more or less, would write to him
about it.  "Whenever I receive these
letters," said Cleveland, "I know that
senile old liar and thief, Dana, has
been at it again.  That Ib the only way
I keep track of hiB mental ravings.
HiB  object, I sunpoBO, is to annoy me
and my friends.  There is only one thing
that I care anything about in these attacks, tbey are not confined to myself.
It seems senile Dana does not confine bis
warfare to men, women are not free from
his dastardly assaults.   Mrs. Cleveland
has not escaped.   It is bad enough for
Spall umeheen Dlitrlot.
Farm work of every description in tbe
Bpallumcheen district is very backward
owing to tbe late spring. Farmers are
plowing, but little, if any, seeding has
been done. The ice still remains firm
on Mara Lake, and no preparation is yet
being made to get the steamer in shape
for the river trade to Sicamous. The
mill at Enderby bas not resumed operations as yet, nor is it likely to do so until
navigation opens. Tho farmers have
disposed of all their surplus grain, it
being impossible to purchase oats from
any of them. Stock has wintered well
In the valley, thore having beon no
Bcarcity of food with any of tho stockmen. Trade has been rather quiet during the winter months, but there
appears to be a revival now which will
assume largo proportions ns soon as construction begins on the S. A O. Railway.

dy helt, as provided in section 75
and its sub-section, shall be entitled to
bold such claim for the period of one
year from his*fecbrd, although no labor
or expenditure may have been bestowed
thereon, and any free miner having lawfully acquired a mineral claim anywhere
else in the Province shall be entitled to
hold the Bame for a like period of one
year from the date of his record, if he
Bhall, within the first six months from
from such recordt expend upon the
claim itself or hi connection with
its development money or labor
to tho amount or value of one hundred
dollarB, shall satisfy the gold commissioner or mining recordor of such expenditure by a detailed and attested
descriptioifof the work performed; and
shall also, within six months, obtain
from such gold commissioner or mining
recorder a certificate of such expenditure, and record the same with such
gold commissioner or mining recorder. Aud so, from year to year, tlie
holder of a mineral claim shall be entitled to hold the same for one year from
the expiration of hiB previous year of
holding if he shall, within the first six
months of each new year, expend money
or labor upon the claim or its development to the amount or value of one
hundred dollars, to the satisfaction of
the gold commissioner or mining recorder, and shall, within such six
months, have obtained a certificate of
such expenditure, and have recorded the
gold commissioner or mining recordor."
3. There shall be payable to the Province, by the applicant for any Crown
grant of a mineral claim under section
81 of the "Mineral Act," whon tbe min-*
eral claim in respect of which the application is made is situate within the
railway belt, a sum of money equal to
five dollars per acre for each acre to be
granted in such crown grant beforo such
crown grant shall issue, and the payment to the Province of the sum of
money by this section required to he
paid shall be considered, reckoned and
allowed as part of tbe sum of five hundred dollars mentioned in sub-section
(d) of section 81 of the "Mineral Act."
And that tho Baid amendments be incorporated in bill (No. 70) intituled "An
Act to amend the 'Mineral Act.'"
The committee rose, reporting the
resolution.  The report was adopted.
On the order for tne House to return
into committee on the Railway Aid Bill.
Hon. Mr. Beaven cited the rules and
orders of the House in the endeavor to
prove that it was irregular to commit
the bill at tbo present time.
The Houso went into committee, Mr.
Duck iu the chair.
On motion of Hon. Mr. Davie the 1st!
2nd, 3rd and 4th clauses of the Railway
Aid Bill were amended to provide that
the uniform guage ft railways entitled
to a grant of 20,000 Acres per mile should
bo not lesB than 4 feet 8»« inches; but if
tbey wore of less than that guage the
Lieut.-Governor may make to them a
similar grant not exceeding 10,000 acres
per mile. Hon. Sir. Davie said that the
Government wished to encourage broad
guage roads, but in some districts only
narrow guage roads could bo constructed.
In section 0, providing for tbe taking
of railway lands in alternate blocks,
were added the words "and in caies,
subject to tbe provisionally sections of
sections 17 and 18 where the <full quantity of acres cannot be had, the Lieut.-
Govemor may allow the deficiency to be
made up out of other public lands in
flections other than those where the de'
ftciency occurs."
A section (No. 14) waB introduced providing that "nothing in thiB act contained shall authorize tbe grant of land
to any company which at tho time of
the grant snail have made or Buffered
default in carrying out its terms of incorporation, or of this act aB applicable
to it."
The section relating to the royalty
was altered iu committee to provide that
"such royalty shall not extend to mines
which may have beeu acquired before
and are held by mining companies, or
individuals, at tbe time of the filing by
tho railway company of its map or plan
showing the line of tbe proposed railway, nor Bhall such royalty apply so
long as the mine is held by such companies, or individuals, or their lawful
successors."
EVENING   SESSION.
On the motion for committee on sup-
expenditures on public works had been
much larger during his (Mr. Beaven's)
tenure of ofliee than they had been
since. The policy of the Government at
that time had been not to allow expenditure to exceed revenue, and It had
carried it out to the letter. Aud all this
time the estimates had fairly represented tho amounts received and the amounts
paid out.
Hon. Mr. Robson twitted the leader
ply on tlie supplementary estimates,
Hon. Mr. Turner said lie had hud no
opportunity before to reply to tbe statements made bv hon. gentlemen of the
Opposition at the time the House was
?:oing into committee on the estimates

A marriage broker is doing an excellent business in Bachmut, Russia. Any
body coming to Bachmut is sure to b<
met by this man at his hotel with the
enquiry: "Sir, do you want to marry?"

A rare phenomenon Ib reported from
St. Malo, France. Between four and
five o'clock of an afternoon three suns
were seen all in a row a little above the
western horizon. The sky was very
clear at the time. The central luminary,
the sun itself, shone with unwonted
brilliancy, while from its supporters
darted rays of all the prismatic colors.
At the same moment a rainbow made
its appearance at some little distance,
but upsido down with its convex side
towards tho horizon. The phenomenon,
which lasted some time, was witnessed
by a number of people, many of whom
sketched it. Not long ago a lunar phenomenon of a similar kind was witnessed at another port in the northwest of
France.
Children Cry for Pitcher'*. Ctttorlt
sitioii nnd the hon. member for Cassiar
then made long speeches which were
ostensibly an attack on the Government
with respect to tbe estimates, but those
gentlemen seemed to feel, after commencing, that it was a difficult matter
to complain about the estimates, so
they felt back and made a rather weak
review of the public accounts for the
past year. After eliminating from their
speeches the bitter personal attack on
tlie attorney-general there was not
much In them, but this fault-finding
with reBpeot to last year's accounts. It
was somewhat singular that they had
elicited tho same point in the accounts
which he (Hon. Mr. Turner) bad himself referred to. He hod said that the
revenue to 30th June last exceeded the
estimates by (106,000. Those gentlemen both said the same, but they quite
omitted to explain, as he had done, tbe
causes of the excess, namely, tbat the
greater part of it arose from the Government taking advantage of a favorable
time to sell land aud thereby in one
item adding 107,000 to the income of
the Province. Then, with respect to
the explanation: Hon. Mr. Beaven had
said that it being $45,000 over the
estimates, to 30th June - last, was
truly an alarming state of things.
That hon. gentleman did not Bay, though
he knew It was tbe case, that this excess
arose from tho circumstances which
could not possibly be anticipated when
tbe estimates were framed. He did not
say, for instance, that the Government
was suddenly called on to make special
expenditure for the protection of the
lives and property of its people endangered by threatened Indian troubles.
To be consistent, that hon. gentleman
would say that such expenditure, not
being on the estimates, was wrong.
That gentleman did not believe in
country first and estimates afterwards
when he made his estimates.   He said.
of the Opposition for his childish criticism.   The member for Cassiar and the
leader of the Opposition on the presentation of the estimates had accused the
minister of finance of bungling, while
the leader of the Opposition when  minister of finance had been many, many
times farther out than the present minister.   He would remind him that those
who lived in glass houses  should not
throw stones. It should always be borne
in mind how difficult it was in a countiy
like this to arrive at correct estimates.
Hon. gentlemen opposite had been  in
the habit of taunting this Government
with having no policy, but he ventured
to say it had a larger, more patriotic and
statesmanlike policy than any previous
one in British Columbia.   What was
the policy of the Opposition?  Its plankB
appeared to be  Sam  Greer, John N.
Muir aud the educational department.
As to Greer, ho ventured to say, after
the decision of the supreme court, that
there bad been a more barefaced attempt
to swindle the Government. In the case
of John N. Muir,  the utmost latitude
had been {^ivon him-to put his case before a special committee, aud it must be
the verdict of every honest and candid
man or woman that a worse case had
never been brought before a committee.
This caBe had been brought before the
public in connection with the education
department.    In connection with that
department the organ of the Opposition
hud followed him like a sleuth hound,
and had spent oceans uf ink and sheaves
of paper to prove  that his  (Mr.  Robson's) policy hud been  to turn it into a
political machine.    They had endeavored to convey the impression tbat he had
tymnized and lordcu it over the teachers
under his control.     But not only the
one paper but others had followed its
example, caring little for tbo interests
of the department so as to destroy the
bead of it.   The senior member for Yale
had espoused the cause of the crunk who
was making the trouble.   A committee
bad But for weeks on this matter nnd
had made a report, with one exception,
completely vindicating the department.
He referred to the report in the cases of
Miss Lawrence, Miss Ramsay and Mr,
Muir, the latter of whom the committee
found had treated Miss Ramsay with
tho utmost meanness.    The committee
found that Mr.   Muir  had  kept her
out of the Wellington school for five or
six weeks in tlie moat unmanly manner.
In connection with the closing of the
English school, it bad been shown that
tho department had never sought to
usurp the functions of the trustees.
The hon. gentleman then reviewed
the majority report, published elsewhere
in this paper, and continued: There was
no mutiny against the Department such
as had been alleged by Mr. Muir to have
been the case.   The finding with respect  ■
to Mr. Muir was most conclusive and
most condemnatory of him,   It could
not he contended that thiB was a white-
washing report.   Mr.  Ladner, though
ordinarily opposed to the Government,
felt that lie could not switch off and endorse the minority report of the member
for Yale, which was indeed "a lovely
document."   The majority report said
tbat the certificate of Mr. Muir should
have been cancelled long ago, and white
the Superintendent of Education had
many a time called upon him to cancel
his certificate, it was only after the
Superintendent had said that either the
certificate of Mr. Muir must be cancelled
or be should resign, that he had brought
the subject before his colleagues.   For
two years he had tried to assist him
(Muir), believing him to be a well-meaning man. but a crank, perhaps somewhat
affected in his head.    He (Muir) had
done his bast to sow the seeds of discord
and insubordination among tbe teachers
of the Province,  and he (Hon. Mr.
Robson) could now see that he had
been guilty of injustice to the Department m showing leniency to him bo
long.   He could see now how effectually
be had made an enemy by trying to do
him a kindness.   Now only one paper in
the Province, tho organ of the " loyal
Opposition," would allow Muir the use
of its columns.   The teachers of British
Columbia  had  proved  themselves too
sensible aud too clear headed to follow
hiB misguided lend.   He had never used
the Educational Department as a political machine;   lie  challenged denial of
this statement and he would Bay that
never again would ho allow a case of insubordination to go as fur us Mr. Mulr's.
Having effectually proved the rottenness of three planks of the Opposition
platform, it would be amusing to Bee
how the Opposition would attempt to
keep afloat their foundering ship.  One
more point: The Opposition had accused
him of attempting to effect an exchange of lands in tho Peace River distinct for land iu the railway belt, and
It afterwards plumed itself on having
compelled him (tho premier) to abandon
the scheme which they asserted he wub
engaged in to tbe detriment of the interests of tbe Province.   He denied that
any deal such ns was alleged to be in
contemplation   was   ever thought of
since the mineral question was settled,
and uIbo that the organ of the Opposition
had any more influence in determining
the actions of the Government than the
man in tlie moon.   The paper referred
to habitually attempted to deceive the
public, bo tbey could thereby compass
the destruction of himself (Hon. Mr.
Robson).   The premier sat down amid
prolonged applause.       j^————

THURSDAY KVKNIKU, APRIL 17, I860.
THAT REFORM BILL.
Tint new so-culled Redistribution Bill
which, though nominally nnd necessarily a Government measure, is really the
offspring of Victoria greed and Victoria
sectionalism, and will not, we anticipate, divide the House on party
lines at all, cun not, if passed, he
regarded by fair-minded peoplo in any
section of the Province as anything better than a very poor und temporary
makeshift. We cannot Buy, nud we ex
pressed the same idea months ago, thnt
we expected anything like a thorough
and proper adjustment of the Provincial
representation at this time, owing to
" tbe luck of recent unthuritntive data ns
a basis for a radical measure of redistrl
bution such as 1b required. The last
censiiB was taken nearly ten years ago,
aud there was very little, as our readers
know, to guide the Government in the
formulation of its necessarily imperfect
and only partial scheme of redistribution but the rather unsatisfactory and
in some cases deceptive data of the
voters' lists. Under all the circumstances, a radical reform bill, which Ib
so much needed, was not to be thought
of at the present session, nor until after
the next Dominion decennial census,
which will bo taken next year.
A better—a fairer—meuBure, however,
we submit, might have been introduced,
had the Island portion of the Province
not been determined to keep up its reputation for sectionalism by insisting,
through its majority representation in
the Cabinet and in the Legislature, on
having unwarrantably increased representation on tbe Island to offset a justifiable and necessary increase on the
Mainland. But this is au old trick of
tbe Island's, of which nothing, apparently, will cure it but the wholesome
lesBon that it must, and will, get early
in the next Parliament, if the people of
the Mainland, and of the Lower Mainland especially, embracing the "twin
cities" and tho District of New Westminster, are true to their own interests,
if they stand shoulder to shoulder and
go in to win on the righteousness and
justice of their cause. Without such
determind co-operation, however, in a
laudable and persistent struggle for our
simple rights, we need never hope for
anything more than, tho bare crumbs
that may fall from our Island masters'
table. Surely no one in this part of the
Province requires to be convinced that
the above statement is no exaggeration,
Victoria Oity principally, und tbe Island
generally, must bo taught, ffnnly, and
aB kindly ub possible, that one section of
the Province, other things being equal,
ia ub good as another section, and entitled to proportionate rights and privileges, if the integritys of the Province
itself is to be preserved. We aro sure
that every patriotic British Columbian
desires this, and the only way to guarantee it for any length of time is to take
immediate and decided action, which
must be unrcmitingly persevered iu,
for tbe remedying of grievous and crying wrongs, which will not be remedied
without a mighty, persistent, and do-
voted effort by those most interested.
We have been thus plain in placing
the onus of tho redistribution measure
where it belongs, because it is important that no mistake Bhould be made,
and no timo lost in kicking against an
imaginary antagonist. The bill is a
Victoria, ah Island, measure, pure and
simple, although formally and necessarily introduced by the leader of the
Government. The explanation is simple;
The Island, which is, of course, dominated by Victoria) has a majority representation in the Government, and a
practical majority in the House, added
to which it appears to have the
support in this measure* of most
of the representatives of interior
Mainland constituencies, who, knowing thnt their own districts have
all the representation to which they are
reasonably entitled at the present time,
appear to be indifferent to tbe claims of
right aud justice and tbe general welfare
of tho Province. The leader of the Government, under such circumstances,
whatever hiB personal predilections in
the premises, is perfectly powerless.
Whatever he docs, he cannot Introduce
and curry a good bill through the House,
So far aa regulating his own conduct is
concerned, he has the alternative of
resigning, and letting the thing go by
default, or submitting the measure
which the majority has dictated. The
Premier, in choosing the latter alternative, has adopted the course which nine
out of ten in a similar position would
have taken; hut we will not believe,
until we hear his public expression on
the question, that Mr. Robson, as a
Lower Mainland representative, is satisfied with the redistribution scheme
which it waB his duty as Premier to Introduce; in fact, we have very good
reason to believe that he strove hard for
a more just measure.
As the debate or the vote ou the Redistribution Bill have not yet taken
place, it is just possible tbat quite a
number of honorable members may set
themselves right on tbe question, and
we shall give them all credit if they do.
It will be edifying, on the other hand, to
hear the attempts at justification by
those who shall persist in supporting
the measure in its present form. That
suoh a measure could be introduced
even is a serious reflection upon the
sense of fairness and justice of the
majority in both House and Government. The debate and the vote on the
question will put every man in the
House on record, and enable us in this
part of tbe Province to judge pretty
accurately what we may expect in the
future as well as at the present in matters of redistribution. If the bill receives a strong support, and posses with-
A gay bachelor of this city, says the
Philadelphia Press, has a curious decoration over his sitting-room mantel. A
large frame is filled with photographs of
girls and women, most of them pretty.
At the bottom of eacli picture Ib pasted
a newspaper clipping. "Why, Mr.
Brown, what do you mean?" he wns
asked recently. "They are pictures of
the only glrla I ever loved," he replied,
"and those clippings are their marriage
notices."
The editor of the Salt Lako Times said
in a recent interview with a Chicago reporter tbat the Mormons wero gradually
deserting Utah Territory, and that before long all those who desire to practise
polygamy will be gone. Tbey are slipping away quietly, and it is believed
that some 2,000 families have left within the last two years. A Mormon syndicate has bought an immense tract of
laud in the statu of Chihuahua, Mex.,
and many have gone thither. It is information like thiB thnt arouses suspicion
aa to the character of the Mormon colony in our Northwest.
The following portion of a private letter from Dr. Schliemann bus beeu made
public at Berlin: "I intend at tbe beginning of March, iu company with Dr.
Dorpfleld, to take up again my excavations in Troy energetically, and continue
them for at least two years. I shall
have two railways, which will render
the removal of the rubbish more easy.
1 Bhall first lay bare the exterior of the
walls, as well as the roads which lead
from the three gates to the lower town:
then I shall gradually remove the two
heaps of earth which have remained in
the middle of the burned city, beginning at the top. I have had very many
wooden houses built nt Troy, because in
spring and summer I expect very many
visitors, among thorn being some of tho
most learned and celebruted men of
science."
Manitoba, through her boards of trade,
in a moment of simplicity, asked for an
advance in the duties of flour. The Government has graciously condescended to
acknowledge these petitions by placing
an extra 25 cents per barrel on flour.
At the same time the Government has
added enormously to the tariff burdens
of Manitoba, by placing heavy duties
upon fruits and other commodities
which we are obliged to import. Any
Blight advantage which the most ardent
supporters of tbe duty upon flour can see
in the .recent advance in the tariff on
that article, will be vastly overbalanced
by the increased cost of fruits, etc,
Manitobans, however, must be consistent in this matter and not And fault
with the recent changes. If we are going to make the British Columbians puy
75 cents per barrel more for their flour
than it otherwise would cost them, we
should also be willing to pay high prices
for fruit, in order to encourage fruit
growing in the Paodfic Province. The
thing Ib as broad as it is long. To be
sure the West is at a'disadvantage with
tbe east in this tariff question; but then
the principle is the same all around,
and if we get more than we bargained
for, we will just have to grin and bear it.
Some of those who aro now denouncing
the increase in the duty on fruits, etc.,
should remember that consistency Ib
considered u great virtue.— Winnipeg

Westminster Southern Railway. The land is high and dry, and
the soil is first-class. Surrey is one of the most prosperous sec

Post-office, at $160 per aore.
This is fine fertile soil, chiefly prairie, and lies well, It
has become a maxim that cities grow westward, and New West,
minster is proving no exception to tho rule. City lots west of
Edinburgh Street, along tho North Arm road, have doubled in
value in Iosb 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 Oity. Moreover, it is confidently expected by many that
the route of the Electric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
seetion. Our shrewdest speculators are realizing the possibilities
of this portion of the City, and tho many sales of acre property
in the vicinity recently, indicate that land in the direction of the
North Arm is looked upon us one of tho best places for investment in the District.    Pricos are bound to advance rapidly.

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 tho 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.

Another Sacrifice,
There ia a rumor round town that our
worthy Alderman Sinclair has armed
for tlie fray, aud will enter tha lists as a
contestant for the vacancy now existing
in the parliamentary district of New
Westminster. Day by day there seems
to be a greater necessity of someone filling the terrible void; no one wants the
position, but dozens are ready to enter
the breach and attempt the capture of
the seat—a willing and disinterested
sacrifice. Volunteers are springing into
the ranks of the "forlorn nope1' daily,
and soon that gallant band will have assumed regimental proportions unless a
halt is called by tho. speedy arrival of
nomination day.

Houses Wauled.
Nothing is so badly wanted in the
city at present as dwelling houses.
Buildings are going up in every direction as fast as men and material can do
the work, but not fast enough. The
population is being added to every day,
families arriving by every train, but
there is little house room for them. It
is the old story of last year repeated.
Houses are rented before the frame
work is up, and in many instances before the plans have been completed.
What are we going to do about it? is
the question asked, but tho answer is
Blow in coming. Four hundred now
houses was the estimate mado for the
present year, but it will take lift ween
500 and (100 to supply the demand.

Among the freight taken to Victoria

arrived from tlie interior yesterday.
These hides are a memento of the severe

The salmon run fell off slightly to-day,
probably on account of the stormy
weather last night, which wus bad
enough to keep the most enthusiastic
fisherman away from his work, Tlie
oolachan run was rather better to-day,
but not by any means, up to the expected standard.
The steamer Yosemite arrived from
Victoria last night, bringing 300 tons of
freight, the largest cargo this season,
The goods were consigned chiefly to the
canneries and the Brunette Saw Mills
Co. She left on the return trip at 9
o'clock this morning, taking 40 head of
cattle, 50 tons frieght and 20 tons of
farm produce.

Tho first salmon packing operations of
the season were inaugurated to-day by
Mr. Alex. Ewen, who put a number of
boats to work thiB morning. The run of
spring suit non, though larger than usual
this year, is not so great that all the
canneries, if running, would be able to
pack with profit, but for one or two canneries a fair return could be made. The
fishermen generally are pleased with tbe
Srospect of a certain market for their
sb, and it Ib expected that the full fishing fleet will now begin operations. As
there are indications of failing off in the
run the term of spring packing mny be

Flak Jubilee Bluffers.
A splendid audience greeted the Fisk
Jubilee Singers at the Marquam Grand
Opera House last night on the occasion
of their first appearance in this city, and
they went away at the close of the clever
entertainment highly delighted with
their evening's amusement. The natural
and inimitable harmony of the genuine
negro melodies, sung by the negro singers, will neVer lose its charm for lovers
of pure music, and the appreciation of
the audience last evening was evidenced
by enthusiastic encores of every number
on the programme. The company,
which is now in Its nineteenth season,
has been carefully chosen, and the
voices harmonize admirably, while every
number sung was marked by the greatest precision. The selections were varied
ana well chosen, and were given with
characteristic vigor.—Oregonian, April

24 and 25 of the monthly report, during
the past year; with power to call for
persons, papers and other documents
bearing on the subject, and to examine
witnesses in connection therewith—
have held eight sessions, examined the
following witnesses under oath: Hon.
Jno. Robson, Mr. S. D. Pope, Superintendent of Education; Mr. D. Wilson,
Inspector of Schools; Mr. J. N. Muir
and Jno. Anderson. After carefully
weighing the evidence, which is submitted "herewith, we beg to report as
follows:
1st. That, under the provisions of the
School Act," the department had not
the authority to grant a temporary certificate to Miss Lawrence on the application made on her behalf at the beginning of August, 1889, there being at that
time a considerable number of certificated teachers unemployed and looking for
positions.
2nd, That, iu regard to the appointment of an assistant teacher in Wellington School in August, 1889, the only irregularity wus tlie appointment by the
trustees of Miss Ramsay and Mr, Muir
to the same position; that Mr, Muir's
subsequent treatment of Miss Ramsay
was neither just nor gentlemanly.
3rd. That the closing of English School
Lulu Island, in November, 1889, was
strictly in accordance with the practice
of the department in such cases.
4th. That the granting of a temporary
certificate to Mr. Alex. Robinson, of
Vancouver, waB iu conformity with the
provisions of tlie "School Act," and in
the interest of education (in this case
there waB u scarcity of suitable certifi-

in this direction before long.

Joined In Wedleek.
A very interesting and happy event
took place yesterday morning at the
residence of Mr. John Campbell, Clement street. It was the marriage of
Mr. Campbell's eldest daughter, Margaret Eva, to Mr. Chas. H. Watson, late
of Kamloops, but now a permanent resident of WeBtminBter. Miss McBride
acted as bridesmaid and Mr. John Campbell, Jr., was best man. Rev. J. H.
White conducted tho ceremony, which
was a very quiet affair. After tlie usual
wedding breakfast the happy couple
took the Atlantic express for Kamloops,
where the honeymoon will be spent.
They were heartily congratulated by
the many friends who assembled at the
station to see them off, and every wish
expressed for a pleasant aud safe trip.
Tub Columbian extends congratulations.

The Lacrosse Minstrels.
The Opera House was nearly filled
last night and it would have been packed but for the rain, which fell heavily
and kept many at home who had intended to be present at the minstrel entertainment. After all the flattering press
notices everyone fully expected that the
performance would be something above
the average, and it is safe to say none
were disappointed. In fact there wub
more genuine fun put upon the boards
last night than the average professional
company is capable of producing, and
what was better the fun was all of
moderate and pleasant character und
inoffensive in every detail. The local
hits were not bad, the singing wns
good, the jokes fresh and amusing, the
banjo playing excellent and the club
swinging a first-class exhibition.of the
art. In fact the entertainment can be
commended from first to last. The
lacrosse minstrels will meet with a warm
reception should they visit Westminster
again.
Junior  Foot  Hall.
Word was received from Vancouver
yesterday thut the Juniors of thut city
could only muster thirteen players to
oppose the Westminster boys ou Saturday. As the Royal City lads would not
think of taking even the slightest advantage over their opponents, It was
decided to play the "baker's dozen,"
and the following were selected for the
match: Back, G. Williams; three quarter backs, A. Webster, E, Rousseau and
A. Homer: half-backs, S. Peele and B.
Pittendrigh; forwards, C. Peele, J. Patterson, G. Gray, W. Gray, W. Moresby
and C. Leamy. This combination is
composed of aB fine metal for hard knocks
as will be brought against it. The lads
are all fine, sturdy and plucky
young fellows, and unless greatly overmatched in size and weight they will
show as pretty play as might be looked
for in the seniors. They are all animated with a determination to win, and
Tub Columbia? will be greatly surprised
if the day Bhould go in favor of their
opponents.
Exactly   So.
Mr. Nelson Bennett has written n
strong letter denying in tola the wildly
extravagant yarn published In Truth a
few weeks ago regarding the extension
of the Southern Railway to English
Bay, and the story that the C. P. R. had
offered him 260 acres of land as a bonus
to get his road there, He also denies
ever having entered Into any negotiations with tlie C. P. R., or any official or
ugent of the company. Mr. Bennett
says thero is absolutely no truth in the
entire article. He further says: "I
neither went to Vancouver to see any of
tho railroad officials there, neither did 1
meet any of them to my knowledge. I
am not acquainted with any of the gentlemen j have no correspondence or dealing with them. They have made no
overtures to me either as a railroad company or individuals, no I to them; neither have I asked for my company, or
any company at all, a subsidy from the
city or any citizens of Vancouver; neither have! confirmed or denied that I
was Intending to build beyond Westminster in any direction. To settle this
entire matter I will say that as a representative of a railroad company that Ib
extending Its lines where it will do the
most good for Itself, we are always looking forward to what is most available
and useful in our line, but we do not
wished to be used aB a medium for the
benefit of real estate boomers either in
Vancouver or elsewhere."
This wbb exactly what was to have
been expected in Mr. Bennett's reply.
but the harm a.few wildcat articles will
do to any young city are not compensated
for even by such a complete refutation
as the above.
FINAL REPORT
or the Beleet House Committee on Education.
The report of the committee on education, appointed at the request of the
Minister of Education, Hon. John Robson, to investigate the several matters
which had brought out charges of unfairness against the department, was
laid before the House yesterday. Following is the full text of the report:
Your Select Committee on education,
appointed for the purpose of enquiring
Into all the circumstances connected
with the change of teacher of the North
Cedar District school; the granting of a
temporary certificate in the Wellington
District, and to the appointment of Mr.
Muir and to his successor's appointment, during July. August and September; the closing of English school, Lulu
Island, the payment of the'teacher's
salary, and tlie cancellation of the teacher's certificate, during the months of
5th. That Mr. Muir's action iu asking
for the cancellation of Miss Rutherford's
certificate was, under the circumstances,
unprofessional mid uncalled for, and
displayed a vindictive spirit; that Mr.
Muir found similar faults existed with
regard to other teachers, but did not report them.
fith. That there is no evidence before
the committee of any injustice in nor
dissatisfaction among the teachers with
questions 24 and 25 of the monthly reports.
7th. That we can only characterize
Mr. Muir's correspondence with the
Education Department aB showing insubordination and insolence to those in
authority. From the evidence adduced,
aud the correspondence presented, we
consider that the earlier cancellation of
Mr. Muir's certificate would have been
in the best interests of education, as we
believe that for a considerable time he
was not a fit and proper person to have
charge of uny public school.

House went into committee on tlie
Game Bill, Mr. Thompson in the chair.
Committee rose and reported the bill
complete with amendments. Report
will bo considered on Friday.
Mr. Cunningham moved tho second
reading of the Mechanics' Lien Bill.   A
fireut deal of the legislation this session
md been in the Interest of corporations,
but very little had beeu done on behalf
of the wage-earner. He was for from
satisfied on this account. On looking
over tbe past ho found he had not done
nearly what he intended to do. He and
the senior member for Nanaimo had
been consulting on the advisability of
amending the laws regarding mechanics,
It was very difficult to draw a lien act
that would satisfy all parties. Our
cousins across the line have been wiser
in their dny und generation und always
have been, not only iu this matter but
in others. Those who earn their bread
by the sweat of their brow deserve the
most careful consideration from the
Government. This they got across the
line and ho had never known a failure
to take place under the Lien Act in
Oregon. Another difficulty of the net
was that those who had the administration of the act did not know how to proceed. It could be brought into court,
but the judges did not know how to take
it out. So a prominent County Court
judge had informed him a few days before. The time was coming when the
course of procedure throughout the
Dominion would be the same. This
would stop our mechanics from drifting
across the line. Every steamer that left
Vancouver for the American Bide carried
away some of our finest mechanic... T*.-■
object In bringing in these amendments
was to prevent this serious emigration.
It was in the interest of the working
classes und he hoped the Hon. Attorney-
General and the Hon. President of the
Council would lend their aid to further
this aim.
Mr. Semlin asked the mover to detail
the difference between the working of
tho United States Lien Act and that of
this Province, for the information of the
House.
Mr. Cunningham said it would take
too long to enter into the explanation at
that time, but he would be happy to do
so when the bill was committed.
Ho might say, however, that there
was this difference between the two
Acts, that he had never known a failure
of the Oregon or Washington Lien Act,
while the reverse was only too well
known to be the case with the British
Columbian Act.
Hon. Mr. Beaven explained the principal features of the Oregon Lien Act,
It was bo simple that it did not require
a lawyer to explain the workings ot the
Act. Everyone knew that this Act
worked very satisfactorily in the State
of Oregon, and the conditions of our life
here were so similar that the introduction of the principles of this statute into thiB Province was not unreasonable.
The duty of this House unquestionably
was to throw as much protection round
the working classes as possible. He
would certainly vote for the second reading of this bill.
Mr. Ladner knew that the gentlemen
who were taking most Interest in the
bill had gained their Information from
long experience. He would most heartily support the second reading.
Mr. Semlin waB pained to hear the
hon. member for Westminster City say
