Probably  Incorrect.
Bkhi.is, Mnr. 22.—A profound sensation has been created here by the report that ex-chancellor Bismarck has
refused to accept the dukedom of Lauen-
berg and the decoration conferred upon
him hy tlio Emperor, nnd that Count
Herbert Bismarck ia urging the acceptance of his resignation as Minister of
foreign affairs.

Only One Hanger.
Pamb, Mar. 22.—M. Benedetti, French
minister to Berlin from 1804 to 1870, in
an interview with the correspondent of
the United press to-day, said that
the retirement of Bismarck' gave uo reason for alarm. Tlie only danger to
European peace, he said, was found in
the blundering methods of the Italian
premier which might possibly lend to the
bankruptcy of Italy.
Opinion. Differ.
Madrid, March 22.—Tho monarchical
press here, both Liberal aud Conservative, regard the retirement of Bismarck
as a cause for grave apprehension in
Europe. The Republican press, on tho
other hand, receive it witli exultation as
leading to tlie possible dissolution of
the Empire and the advancement of
their own ideas.
The Cruise of the near.
San Fbancisco, Mar. 22.—Tlie testimony hi the case of Capt. Hcaly, oi the
U.S. Cutter Bear, charged with drunkenness and cruelty, is all in, and will be
forwarded shortly to Washington, to lie
considered and acted upon.
Salmon Fisheries Regulation..
Ottawa, March 21.—The new regulations respecting salmon fishing in British Columbia will appear to-inorrow in
the Qtuette.
Fishing by means of nets or other up-
KaratuB without a lease or license is pro-
ibited, an exception being made in tho
case oi Indians. The meshes of nets
used for capturing salmon must bo ut
loast 5?4' inches extension measure, aud
nothing shall lie done to practically
diminish their size, provided always
that the Minister ot Marine and Fisheries may order larger meshes to be
used at such times und places as may bo
in his opinion necessary for the protection of tlio llshericH.
Driltiug with salmon nets must bo
confined to tidal water, and no salmon
net of any kind must bo used for salmon
in fresh water. Tho drift nets shall not
be used so ns to obstruct more than one-
third of any river. Fishing for salmon
shall be discontinued from 0 p.m. on
Saturday tiU 0 o'clock a.m. on tho following Monday, and during such close
time no nets or othor ilshlng apparatus
shall be set or used so as to impede tho
free course of the llsli, and all nets or
other fishing apparatus set or used
otherwise shall bo deemed to be illegally set. and shall be liable to be seized
and forfeited, and the owner or persons
using the same be liable to tho penalties
and costs imposed by the Fisheries Act.
Before any salmon not, fishing boat or
other Hailing apparatus shall be used,
the owner or other persons Interested in
such net, fishing boat or Ilshlng apparatus, shall cause a memorandum hi
writing, setting forth the name of the
owner or person intorested,the length of
the net, boat or other fishing apparatus
and its intended location, to lie Hied
with the Inspector of Fisheries, who, if
no valid objection exists, may, in accordance with instructions from the
Minister of Marine and Fisheries, issue
a fishing license for tho same. Any not,
fishing boat or fishing apparatus used
before such license has been obtained,
and any not. fishing boat or Ilshlng ap-
Saratus used In excess or evasion of the
escriptlon contained In such license
shall bo also subject to a fine and costs
under the Fisheries Act. All salmon
nets and fishing boats shall have the
name of tho owner or owners legibly
marked on two pieces of wood or metal
attached to tlie same, and such mark
shall be preserved ou Btich nets or fishing boats, during the fishing season, in
such manner as to bo visible without
taking up the net, and any net or ilshlng boat used without such shall be
liable to forfeiture. The Minister of
Fisheries -hall, from time to time, determine the number of boats, seines or
or nets, or other fishing apparatus, to bo
used in any of the waters of British
Columbia.
The total number of licenses for sal
mon fishing on tho Fraser River slinll
be limited to 600, and this number 380
shall bo allotted among the canneries
in operation on the Fraser River in the
season of 1890, the allotment thereof to
be based, in the cases of the old canneries, upon their average respective
packs of tne last three seasons, and in
those of the new canneries upon the
estimate of the Inspector of Fisheries
of the reasonable working capacity of
such new canneries. For all HcenceB up
to 20, inclusive, a fee of (20 each shall
be charged, and for any number in excess of 20, which under the proposed
allotment any cannery may be entitled
to take up a fee of ,50 for each license
shall be charged. Should any of the
360 licenses above referred to remain
unissued thoy may bo alloted on the
basis already stated to the canneries
applying therefor at a fee of T60 for each
licence, and in case there Bhould. not be
a sufficient number to permit of this being dono, may bo issued by the Inspector of Fisheries In suoh manner as be
deems equitably upon tbo payment of
tho lust mentioned feo, The remaining
160 licences to bo issued ut }fi per license
to the proprietors of freezers on tbo
river and fishermen ns the Minister of
Marine nnd Fisheries niav authorize.
No fisherman, however, is to receive
moro than one licence.
Trout Fisheries—No one shall llsh for,
catch or kill trout from the 16th October to tho 16th March, both days inclusive, in each year. Provided always
that Indians may at any timo catch or
kill trout for their own use, but not for
purposes of salo or traffic. The close
season for trout shall be from 15th October to 18th March in eachyear. (Signod)
John J. McGee, Clerk of Privy Council.
OUR OTTAWA LETTER.
Uernitiii Affairs.
London, March 21.—A Berlin dos-
patcli to the Standard says that besides
the comprehensive military and naval
knowledge, General Von Caprivi ia well
veraed in modern languages, history and
political science. While chief of the
admiralty he showed great aversion to
the semi-official papers. This leads the
Liberals to believe that a thorough
change of relatione between the Government and the press may be expected.
All of tlie German ambassadors have
been summoned to Berlin to make the
acquaintance of nnd consult with the
new chancellor. The Times' Berlin
despatch says: The remarkable feature
of the crisis is that there has been no
organized efforts of public opinion to induce Prince Bismarck to stop in office.
Tills may be attributed to the fact that
his countrymen are convinced of tlio
hopelessness of trying to induce him to
change his mind. Moreover tbey know
that he ia ageing rapidly and has merited
rest, and they know that they aro blessed with an Emperor who is pledged to
continue the foreign policy which has
secured iieace in Germany for twenty
yenrs.       	
Imperial 1'nrl lament.
London, March 21.—The debate in
the House of Lords to-night on Lord
Salisbury's motion to adopt the report
of tlie Pamell Commission, was un exceedingly tame affair. Acting iu accordance with Mr. Gladstone's decision that
the liberals would be better not to move
an amendment to the motion, most of
the Liberal peers abstained from taking
part in the discussion in order to accentuate their disgust with the Government's attempt to construe the verdict
of not guilty into one of conviction.
In the House of Commons this evening Sir James Ferguson, the Under
Foreign Secretary, stated that a modus
vicenai had been established with
France in regard to the Newfoundland
fisheries, which provides that the
French lobster factories in existence in
1880 might continue this season. By
the terma of the agreement new fac-
toriea could only be established by tlie
joint consent of the British and French
commanders.
Mr. Labourite.c moved the abolition
of hereditary representatives in Parliament. Democracy, he Bald, was now a
reality, and hereditary peers were fatal
in antagonism to democracy.   The peo-
Sle would repudiate the idoa that hun-
reds were born with the privilege of
legislating as a class. The House had
before it tlie spectacle of men excluded
from jockey clubs and race courses, being allowed to legislate upon national
affairs. Mr. Llewlyn Jones seconded
the motion, and a division was taken,
resulting in its rejection bv a vote of 201
to 130. '
Anti-Chinese   Kent intent.
That the Chinese must go, is evidently still the determination of the people
of British Columbia, or at least a considerable portion of them. Anti-Chinese detuonstrationa havo broken out
afresh, nnd the opposition to poor John
bus recently been demonstrated iu a
most acute form. Becently a deputation
waited on the Victoria city council and
requested that an unti-Cliiin.se clause
bo inserted iu all bonus by-laws, the object being to prevent industrial establishments from employing Mongolians
us workmen. More recently a public
meeting was held at New Westminster,
at which a resolution was passed asking
tho provincial legislature to insert an
anti-Chinese clause in n bill then before
the houso for the incorporation of tbe
New Westminster Street Hallway Co.,
in order that Chinamen might not be
employed In connection with the enterprise. An effort was actually made iu
the legislature to incorporate; such a
clause in the bill, but it was very properly rejected by a large majority. Tins
ia certainly carrying the unti-Chiueso
sentiment to extremes. Evidently the
strong dislike of Chinese hus not subsided to any extent iu British Columbia.
On the other hand, it has porhaps been
increased In some quarters by the belief
that tlie Dominion Government contemplated an amelioration of the Chinese
restriction laws.— Winnijmj Commercial,
New» from the HealerH.
A letter dated Clayoquot, March 5th,
has been received in this city from Mr.
W. II. Paine, who is a hunter on the
sealer E. B. Marvin. Mr. Paine writes
that for the first few days out nothing
could be done. The schooner sailed
south after she left here, and on tbe 10th
of February spoke the Maggie Mac,
which had at that time 12 skins. This
was off the Umpqua river. The Marvin
then went further south, and cruised off
Point Blanco, but could find no seal.
They again shaped to the northwards,
and got several seal off Gray's Harbor,
but about that time the weather began
to be something fearful, terrible gales
and severe cold prevailing, so that sealing was impossible. The rough weather
continuing, and the Marvin carrying
away her jlbbooin, the schooner was
taken into Clayoquot harbor, where a
new spar was rigged. The schooners
Ariel and Black Diamond were also In
Clayoquot harbor, and the Indiana reported that tlie Sapphire, Triumph,
Beatrice and Junnltu were nt Ahhousett.
The catches of the fleet as fur as can be
learned up tn March fith are aa follows:
E. B. Marvin, ISU; Black Diamond, 115;
Sapphire, 00; Beatrice 40. Everybody
is rcporled well on the schooners spoken
by the Marvin, and all hands on that vessel but one are In good health. One man
has been ailing aud will probably bo
sent down to \ ictorin. The weather at
the time Mr. Paine wrote was getting
more favorable, and the schooner was to
leave the following day for seal hunting.

[From Our Own Correspontlonl.]
THE SENATE.
Ottawa, Mar. 12,—The work done in
the Senate during the past week has
not been very voluminous, extremely
iutereatiug, or us a whole beneficial.
It has been more of an exhibition of
explanations and suggestions than
anything else. But then a little
good work was dono and for that
little we will give tho  senators credit,
Ou Monday the Bill "An Act to Incorporate the Canada Cable Company,"
missed its third reading, when a hot "debate arose ou the report of the Debates
Conuuitteu, who wished to exercise authority to suppress tbe publication of
of any debates tbey liked, without the
consent of the Senate. Hon. Mr. How-
Ion moved the adoption of tlio committee's report, which was defeated on a
vote 'of 20 to 28. Senators Mclnnes,
Macdonald, and Iluid voted in the negative.
Ou Tuesday Senator Bolton rose to
call tho attention of the House "to the
advantage of grunting to tlie eor|>orato
banks -power to take security upon real
estate, on personal estate or both, for
tho advance of loans, as a measuro that
will increase circulation, nnd materially
assist iu the developement of our agricultural interests by giving to the farmers cheap money for temporary requirements, nnd to nsk the Government
if they will take the question into their
consideration in the forming of the new
Bank Act."
He said that ho was bringing up the
question not at the request of the banks.
The banks have not power to take security for a loan, they have the power to accept a draft at a day's dutc, and
let it go to protest, aud then take security. This is not a way which is at all
conducive either to the interest of the
banks or of the people themselves, because tbo very fact of the note going to
protest and of having to give security
for it is an evidence of discredit on the
part of the borrower. Tho interest in
which he had brought this question before the notice of tho Houso was that of
our Northwest farmers.
Hon, Mr. Abbott said that the question bad received aud was receiving the
most careful consideration of the Government.
THE MINT   HIM..
Senator Mclnnes moved: "Resolved,
as the opinion of this House, that it ia
both desirable and expedient that the
Government should immediately pass
a Coinage Act nnd establish a mint.
Ho said: "It had nevor occurred to
nie that we hud not tbe power under
tho 14th sub-section of the 01st section
of the British North America Act. I
find that the first attempt made to pass
a Coinage Act by tlie Parliament of
Canada was iu 1850. That act secured
the assent of the Governor-General,
contrary to the instructions from the
Crown, and the consequence was that
that act was disallowed. The next step
taken towards the passage of a Coinage
and Currency Act by the Parliament of
Canada was in 1808 and in 1871 the Parliament of Canada paaaed- an act ex-
ressly reserving the prerogative of the
Irown at that time. The next step
that I find taken by the Parliament of
Canada waB in 1887. This was in connection with tlie proclamation of 1877,
with respect to bronze coinage, and the
Secretary of State signed that proclamation. That was allowed. As early as
1802, the then Crown colony of British
Columbia bad a mint iu New Westminster, That mint was established
there under Imperial authority. Iu
Australia, nearly 80 years ago, two
mints were established—one iu Sydney,
in the colony of New South WuIcb, and
the other in Melbourne, in tbe colony
of Victoria. It is quito evident that we
have the power, irrespective of any reference to the Imperial Parliament, to
establish a mint. Iu the United States
they have three mints. I will now
refer to the very largo amount of gold
that Canada lias produced within the
last thirty years: British Columbia,
$51,599,057; 'Nova Scotia, $10,000,000.
Now, here we have $01,000,000 or ?02.-
000,000 that this country has produced,
which has been exported, and not one
ounce of which has been coined and put
iiilo circulation in our country. I learn
from the most reliable information that
our gold miners out in British Columbia,
who produce that gold, lose from 5 to 0
per cent on till the gold dust and nuggets
that they get, by the cost of transportation down to San Francisco, where they
sell it. Now, I contend that that should
not be the case.
Senator Kaulbuck seconded the
motion. He said: "Anything that will
tend to advance tbo price of gold in this
country shall receive my hearty support.
Last year Nova Scotia produced more
gold than British Columbia. Nothing
will confer a greater advantage to Canada and prove a better means of advertising the importance of this country
abroad than the establishing of a mint.
It will show that we are not only able
to produce our own metals but to coin
them ourselves.
Hon. Mr. Abbot opposed tbo resolution, aud Senator Mclnnes withdrew it.
HOUSE OK COMMONS.
This is the chamber in which the
tigers aud lions meet and fight, but tho
last week has not presented many opportunities fo-i vicious hostilities.
Mr. Lavergne's amendment to the
nBondment to the OrangoIncorporation
Bill, viz,, that nil the works after "that"
in the main motion be omitted, and that
all the words in tho amendment be
struck out mid the following substitute
therefor: "Tbe Hill be not now read u
third time, but that it be read a third
time this day six mouths," was lost on
n division, the voto standing, nays 80,
yeas 03. Mr. Curran's amendment,
"That it be an instruction to the said
committee to provide that this association shall nut hold public processions in
any Province where Party Procession

yeas 23, and tho motion to incorporate

Barnard, Earle, Gordon, Mara, aud

and for tho motion.
THE FUlt DEAL.
Mr. Lister moved "That a seloct committee bo appointed to enquire into the
claims of tho Brcsaylor halfbreeds for
losses sustained during the rebellion in
the Northwest, and also in reference to
furs taken from Charles Bremuer, a
hnlibreed residing at Battleford: That
the said committee consist of Messrs.
Barron, Watson, Denison, Landry,
Macdonald, and Lister, and that they
have power to send tor persons nnd
papers, and employ a stenographer, und
report from Unto to time to this House."
He claimed that the names of General
Middleton, Hayter Moid and Warden
Bedson were mixed up iu the affair;
that he was ready to prove that tho conduct of thoso mon was unbecoming that
of nu officer and unbecoming that of tho
officials of the Government—in other
words, that the conduct of tho General
In command amounted to nothing more,
and nothing loss than a looting of tho
property of the halfbreeds. On these
grounds he waa no longer fit to occupy
tho position ho occupies and the other
officials of tho Government ought to bo
dismissed. "On the sunendorof Pound-
maker," continued Mr. Lister, "tho
French halfbreods wont to tbe fort at
Battleford, and Charles Bremner, one of
these halfbreeds, a fur dealer, in his
business, whom, I am told, had four or
five stations, and who had gathered his
whole winter's catch, brought down all
his furs with him to the fort; he erected
his tent at the fort, and shortly after
doing so some of the soldiers commenced
to take away his furs. General Middle-
ton himself came upon the scene, and
Bremner appealed to him to protect him
against the volunteers or soldiers who
were taking his furs, and, by order of
General Middleton, the furs were taken
into the fort and Bremner was immediately arrested. He was sent to Regina
and lodged in jail, and the military
authorities took his stock of Bilver fox,
and other of tbe most valuable Jura
which the Northwest produces, and
worth from $4,000 to $6,000. After Bremner was released, he went to Battleford
to see about his projierty, and great was
his astonishment, when arriving there,
to find that the officers of the Government, the officers in command, instead
of keeping the promises which they had
uuide to him to take care of his furs, informed him that these furs were disposed of by order of General Middleton.
I think I shall be able to prove thut,
when General Middleton was leaving
the Northwest to go to Winnipeg, nil
thut remained of that large quantity of
furs wero put up In four boxes, of which,
by order of General Middleton, two
boxes were for himself, one box for Hay-
tor Keid, and one box for Mr. Bedson,
of the Manitoba penitentiary."
After several speeches were made the
motion of Sir John Macdonald to adjourn the debate was carried.
IJEiUtl.Vo's   SKA.
On Wednesday Mr. Mitchell drew the
attention of the House to the following
paragraph, dated Washington, 4th of
March: "The President will, in a few
days, issue a proclamation, warning all
persons against entering the waters of
JJehring's Sea within the dominion of
the United States, for tlie purpose of
violating the law forbidding the killing
of fur seal or other fur-bearing animals,
without authority from the Secretary of
the Treasury."
Mr. Mitchell said: "This is a matter
which the Government should take up
and deal with at once."
Sir John Thompson said: "The position, of affairs in regard to that proclamation is this: By a statute of the
United States, passed two or three years
ago, the President is bound, in the
month of March, every year, to issue a
proclamation warning all persons against
trespassing within tbe territories of the
United States, in Alaska, including all
the territory ceded by Russia to the
United States."
On Friday, after recess, the House
went into committee of supply, the item,
$3,000 for general repairs, harbors and
rivers, Manitoba, passing; also $20,000
for the Fraser River; dredging, Manitoba, $15,000; bridge over the Belly
River at Uthbridge, N. W. T., to complete, $12,000.
CORRESPONDENCE.
TO THK HEALTH COMMITTEE.
EunoK Columbian.—Sir:—The Board
of Health by accepting office undertake
to give reasonable attention to Sanitary
regulations. Yet we see being done an
act unworthy of the sanitation of the
middle ages. Au hospital built 30 years
ago of wood, now rotten, and having
passed through its wards all forms of
disease from small-pox up, is allowed to
be torn usunder, thereby letting loose
malignant germs lying dormant for
years. It is bad enough to have such a
place in our midst, but it Is cruel, it is
criminal, when we know it is intended
to be the home of several poor families.
I appeal to you, sir, to use your influence
in trying to right this terrible wrong
Yours faithfully,
C J. Fagan.
QUERIES.
Editor Columbian.—Sir :—
1. Why cannot Alderman Lyul's
Health By-law come into force before
the 1st of May? Just now, its promised
good effects are much needed. Many of
the back yards, Ac, in connection with
residences on our most frequented streets
are in a condition anything but hygienic.
Two back yards on Agnes street are
yearningly looking forward to a visit
from the Sanitary Inspector—of one in
particular, complaint is made.
2. Why does the proposed by-law pro-
vide for two officials—Health Officer and
Sanitary Inspector? the Health officer's
duties combine what is expected of both.
3. Ib the transformation of that ancient pile, yclept "Royal Columbian
Hospital" into modern residences in accordance with what hygiene and public
health demands? Iu that famous structure, where disease and death have held
sway for so many long years, morbid
germs aud influences must hold high
carnival. Have any means been made
use of to eliminate possible sources of
danger, by disinfection or otherwise?
Just now, however, we have no Health
Officer or Sanitary Inspector. What
does the Board of Health or Council say
in the matter?
4. Ib tho existence of horse stables
and similar nuisances along our public
streets calculated to add to the beauty
or atmospheric sweetness of our city? If
allowed nt all to occupy their present
situations, should not certain conditions
by tho Health Board be imposed, en*
joining a plentiful use of deodorants and
scrupulous cleaning daily.
5. Would it not be in order for the
City Council to order a second visit to
the Support on piggery to enable Alderman McPhaden to recover his laurels as
Health Commissioner. Mr. Kennedy
should act iu conjunction with the commission to locate the extra thirty-one
pigs and the swill barrels which escaped the worthy alderman's notice.

Might Fire on the Yoaemlte.
While the steamer Yosemite was on
tho way from Westminster to this port
yesterday, a pot of boiling grease, which
was token out of the oven by the cook,
became ignited, and in less than a second the whole galley was in a blaze.
The donkey engine was started immediately, and "before the fire had got any
headway a stream of water had it under
control. The crew deserve praise for
tho manner in which they handled the
fire, for if It had got a start serious damage might have resulted, as a lot of hay
was stored close ■ by the galley door.
The cook had his face slightly burned,
but beyond tbnt no serious damage was
lone.—Friday's Colonist.

THE PROVINCIAL FINANCES.
To bo honest, nnd at the sumo time to
avoid the potty affectation of hyper-
criticism that Homo indulge in, tlio unprejudiced and independent reader oi
tlio statement of estimated revenue and
expenditures brought down by the Provincial Ministor of Finance last Friday,
together with their subsequent elucidation ill the Budget Speech and in there-
marks of the Premier ou the same subject—all of which have appeared at
length ill these columns—must come to
the conclusion that the fiscal affairs of
the Province are being on tlio whole
well and ably managed, and tbisconclu.
sion cannot he successfully disputed.
Indeed, it is noticeable that those whose
interests would load them to essay tlie
task have not attempted anything of the
kiiHl,hut)iave contented themselves with
petti fogging complaints that the Minis,
tcr of Finance had under-estimated the
revenue last year, and that hiB system
of book-keeping in some respects didn't
suit tlio objectors' ideas. These, of
course, are legitimate objects of criticism, but where nothing more vital can
he found to attack in the conduct of the
Provincial lliianccs, both tho people and
tho Government are to be siueorciycon-
gratulated.
Those who have taken the trouble to
read the Finance Minister's remarks on
the estimates will have got a pretty clear
and satisfactory explanation of the principal items, and also of his alleged un'
der-eBtimation of tbe revenue for the
preceding year. We shall not, therefore, go into tlio subject at length, but
merely notice a few points. Iu the first
placo it will be seen that tho Finance
Minister is able to show that there will
be a satisfactory surplus of revenue over
expenditure for tho ensuing fiscal year,
and this, too, with an actual and considerable increase in all the leading
items ot expenditure ovor last year provided for. In keeping with the policy
of the administration for years past, a
liberal increase has been made in the
appropriation for education, amounting
to about $75,000, under the two heads
of general education expenditures and
new school houses, bringing the total
i expenditure for educational purposes up
" to something over ,200,000. For public
works, including buildings, repaii. and
improvements, roads, streets, bridges
and wharves, and exploratory surveys,
the estimates, taken with the supplementary estimates, provide for a considerably increased expenditure over last
year, the total amounting to about $400,-
000.
In connection with tho supplementary estimates the explanation of the
Finance Minister on this subject deserves more than passing notice. After
reminding the Houso that tlie main estimates arc voted for tlie year beginning July 1st next, and that the money
voted under them cannot bo used until
that dato, Mr. Turner continued as follows: "Now, tho Government were con-
" vinced that it would greatly benefit
" every district in the Province If im-
" portant works on roads, bridges,
" schools nnd other improvenieutBcould
" be commenced earlier—the very beat
" part of the year for doing such work
" being probably In April, May and
"June. Iu order to carry out this Idea
" it waB resolved to lay before tho House
" largo supplementary estimates for the
" present year up to July, thus enabling
" beneficial works to goon immediately,
" making the roads at a good season and
" in timo for tho summer traffic ovor
" thorn, and by a wise expenditure in
" this direction providing early employ-
" nieiit for those in want of it, and pro-
" bably retaining many in the country
" who might be otherwise looking elso-
" where for employment. Townrds thiB
" end some $100,000 lias been put down
" in the supplementary estimates for
" works, roadB, etc., and $4,000 for sur
" vcys to enable parties to lie out early.'
Tlie reform inaugurated by the Government by the moans above cannot ho too
highly commended. It is one of far
more importance thau might appear on
the surface, and one which this paper
hus long advocated. That it will be appreciated in evory district in the Province, and lie productive of great public
benefit, goes without saying. The $4,.
000 item ill t he supplementary estimates
for surveys, it will bo noted, makes the
total appropriation for the exploratory
surveys projected by the Government,
$34,000, which, If wisely expended, will
do much towards assisting to open up
and develop the immense, but only partially known, resources of the Province.
As we have printed tho estimates In
detail, it will be unnecessary here to recount tho appropriations for this city
and district. Although there are some
things that we would liko to have seen
provided for which are uot in tlie estimates, such us un appropriation for tho
Pitt River bridgo nnd some provision
for a traffic bridgo over tbo Fraser at
this city, the Government could
hardly bo expected, perhaps, to take
these matters up at tlio fag end session
of Parliament, and, on the whole, this
section of tho Province is treated with
Dome degree of fairness. From a comprehensive, Provincial view of tlie subject, it must be conceded thut tho Government has the financial affairs of the
Province well hi hand, and hus demonstrated its ability to administer them
with a fair degree of that happy combination of liberality and economy bo
essential to success In conducting the
business either of a state or a mercantile
enterprise.
Tho llegiua Leader states that a number of German families who have Bpent
their means in trying to farm in Dakota
aro pulling up stakes for the purpose of
coming to the North-Wcst of Canada, in
tho vicinity of Rcgina.
The English National Association of
journalists is to be incorporated, tbo
Privy Council having satisfied itself
thut that body is a representative one
of the journalists of the United Kingdom. The event is notable for the
rapidity with which this youthful organization lias developed. In 1886 the
association was started by a few Manchester newspaper men, and to-day its
membership roll is well up in the
thousands.
The Pal! Mall Gazelle ill a lengthy
article chronicling this event, states thut
the association asserts the existence of
a great profession, nnd that its idea is
to help the men who create the newspapers and mako them successful. According to the rules of the association;
a journalist is defined to mean "any
" person professionally and habitually
1' engaged as editor of a journal, a leader
" writer,writer of special articles, artist,
" special correspondent, literary niana-
" ger, assistant editor, sub-editor, or
"reporter; or supplying journals with
" articles, illustrations, correspondence
"or reports." Persons must be of age
aud have had not less than two years
actual professional experience in one or
other of the above capacities before they
can become membors.
All the leading men of the press In
Great Britain have already given in
their adhesion to tho Association, and
its aims certainly must commend themselves to tbe public, in whose services
journalists toil day and night. The
watching of legislation affecting the liberty of the press, and a better understanding between journalists and the
authorities is aimed at. The proper
courts and other buildings, with a view
to obtaining accurate reports -of public
proceedings, and' to bo able to carry
greater weight with Ministers of tlie
Crown and heads of departments, are
also aimed at by the charter of incorporation, whilst a greater feeling of responsibility on the part of individual journalists is hoped for. The elimination of
scurrility and slander, as well as a general elevation of the tone of the press, Ib
also anticipated by tho weeding from the
"fourth estate" of men both irresponsible and without the proper qualifications to act as loaders of public opinion.
It is pointed out that physicians and
lawyers have their own chartered associations, and it is urged that tho profession of the press should be in no whit
behind.
The incorporated newspaper men also
meet together from time to time for the
discussion of subjects affecting them in
common as members of a great profession, and also irrespective of class,creed,
nationality or political bias. The completely democratic tone of tho association may bo estimated from tlie fact that
it includes newspaper men as far
asunder in political creed as Sir A.
Borthwick, of the Homing Post, and Mr.
Labouchere, of JVufn, and that in its
conferences Mr. Bradlaugh' sits by side
with men engaged upon religious journals of almost all degrees of thought.
In British Columbia we have reached
a point when, with advantage both to
the public and the press, some similar
steps might be taken. Th. newspapers
of the Province are already of such number and influence that the incorporation
of the journalists of the country would
be u material help to the elevation of
public opinion and to a more dignified
status of an honorable profession.
Wherevor a British Columbia newspaper
finds its way it too much at once
wins golden opinions, and the fact
that from the journalists of the Province
have been recruited our ablest public
men, Bhould be proof sufficient that the
profession generally is made up of individuals worthy of the public recognition
implied by an act of incorporation.
Newspaper men, no matter of what
party, have much in common, and their
interests can only be adequately watched and guarded by an association in
which they can share as journalists, men
cognisant of their responsibilities to the
people, and with a high appreciation of
their position aa the "watchdogs of civilization." ^^^^^^^^^

Daniel D. Blake, a book canvasser in
the employ of a Boston house, received
official information to-day, says a late
Massachusetts dispatch, that he is sole
heir to the estate of the late Sir Henry
Blake, of Norfolk, En.., and that £250,.
000 is at his disposal. Blake will sail
for England in May with hia wife and
daughter, meeting his attorneys In London, and then proceed to Norfolk and
take charge of Sir Henry'B eBtateB. The
fortunate man said to-day that he would
engage the services of a competentman-
ager and then make a tour of Europe
with hiB family. Mr. Blake is about 40
years of age. Sir Henry died about
1876, leaving a will which bequeathed
hia entire property to his only male
blood heir on the Blake side. Documents stated that this heir was in some
town or city unknown in the United
States. Some yenrs ago Blake was visited by au agent of a firm of London attorneys who had charge of the estate
and questioned as tohis antecedents, but
the matter was soon forgotten and only
now has be received information that
the property is his.

AN OPPORTUNITY.
We sat at the club In the lire-light,
As it flickered and played on the wall,
And we chatted of music and Egypt.
Of the opera, art inul the ball.
And I talked half the night with the others,
But my thoughts had flown far o'er the main
And were dwelling in quiet seclusion
In the halls of my castle—In Spain.
In the castle I bulldod so lofty,
Which got a hard knock yesterday,
When they told me Tom Jones Is to marry
Nell Murray—sweet Nellie—In Hay.
Why. Nell Murray has dwelt in that eastle
Ever since It's been mine, and It's plain
That without her light footsteps and laughter
'Twill stand silent und lonely in Spain t
She used to walk, too, with some children
In the gardens so sunny and wide;
But to-night they have all of them vanished,
And It seems as though some one had died.
Well, Jones is a good-looking fellow j
I think, since my (uncles are vain
And he has run off with Its mistress,
I'll shut up my eastle in Spain.
And I'll hang out a neat advertisement,
Whtoh somewhat as follows shall road:
••For sale or to rent, ready furnished
To meet every possible need,
A mansion of fine, airy structure,
.With a wide and extensive domain."
And I'll sell to tho first man who offers
To purchase my .untie In Spain,

SAINT SOGORO.
True Tale of the Peasant Martyr
of Soma, Japan.
In the first half of the seventeenth
oentury JCotsukc-no-Suke was the lord
of Soma, a rich agricultural district containing one hundrod and thirty-six villages. Kotsuko-no-Suko was a hard,
grasping landlord, who oppressed his
peasants by heavy taxes until they
were reduced to the last extremity of
poverty. Year after year tbe wretched
farmers petitioned their lord, through
tbe village mayors, to have their burdens
lightened, but without avail. Being a
member of the Shogun's Cabinet Kot-
suke-no-Snko spent the greater part of
tbe year in Yeddo, where he maintained
a private palace and a host of retainers.
His extravagance gave rise to much
comment in the capital, but few ot tho
haughty nobles who frequented his
entertainments knew by what means
the Lord of Soma procured the vastsums
of money necessary to support suoh lavish magnificence.
In the fall of the year 1643 the farmers dwelling on the estate of Kotsuko-
no-Suko assembled together to devise
measures for thoir relief. That year
. tho taxes had been heavier than ever
before, and scores of families wero
threatened with starvation during the
coming winter. The stoutest hearted
among them were filled with despair at
the apparent hopelessness of their situation. Sogoro, the mayor of one of the
villages, and himself a farmer, had been,
throughout all their vicissitudes, tho
stanch friend of the down-trodden peasants. Ho now advised them to draw tip a
petition to tho Shogun's Cabinot, and then
to solect a committee to go up to Yeddo
and present it to that body! When the
evil doings of their Lord was known to
his fellow-councilors their upttraidings
and bis own wounded pride might shame
him into mercy. Sogoro's plan was
adopted, and ho was one of the number
chosen to go to Yeddo to present tbe
memorial to the Cabinet. Knowing tho
dangers that attended his mission,
Sogoro, on the eve of his departure,
called his family together and said:
"I am going to Yeddo, and it may be
that I shall never return, for It is hard
to say how I shall be treated by thoso
in power, I am willing, however, to
give my life for the good of our suffering fellow*tenants. Let us, therofore,
drink a cup of wine together, for it may
be that you shall see my face no more.
If I die, mourn not over my fate; weep
not for me."
Sogoro and his companions went to
Yeddo and there they soon learned of
the riotous living of their spendthrift
Lord, and thoy wept whon they reflected
that all his wanton luxury was bought
with the life-blood of their famishing
friends at Soma. In a few days thoy
had an opportunity of presenting their
petltion to Lord Kuze, a member ot the
Cabinet, and they all felt elated that the
great nobleman had condescended to
listen to their grievances and to accept
their memorial.
Tbe action of Kotsuke-no-Suko's tenants created no little stir In Yeddo, and
many observations upon that nobleman
and his style of living were mado thut
could scarcely be called complimentary.
But it does not do for people living in
glasshouses to throw stones. All tho
members of the Sbogun's Cabinet bad
at one time or another been guilty of
oppressing their own peasants, and it
would be extremely awkward for them
now to sit in judgment upon Kotsuko-
no-Suke. So it was decided to return
the petition to the complainants. Accordingly Sogoro received a summons to
appear at the residence of Lord Kuze.
There he was met by two councilors,
who banded him the ill-starred memorial, saying:
"A short time ago you had the audaci
to to thrust this petition into the hands
w Lord Kuze. By his extraordinary
clemency he forgives your offense, but
beware that you do not again presume
upon his Lordship's forbearanoo, for ill
will it faro with you."
"His Lordship's censure is just,"
humbly responded Sogoro. "But ohl
my Lords, this action of ours is not
hasty or ill-considered. Year after year
havo we suffered untold hardships, until
now we and our friends are without
even the necessaries of life. Therefore
have we presented this petition. I pray
you, Lords, consider our ease, vouchsafe
to help us that we may livo. Our gratitude to you shall know no bounds."
"Your request is a just one," replied
the councilors, when they bad hoard tho
words of Sogoro, "but your memorial
can not be received."
Disheartened beyond measure, Sogoro
sought out his companions and acquainted them with tho result of thoir
efforts. It was a gloomy evening which
tbe Soma men spent together, discussing with tearful voices tho desperate
extremity to which the failure of their
plans bad reduced themselves and their
friends.   At last Sogoro said:
"There is still ono thing left for us to
do; we ean appeal to our Lord's master,
theShogun. I know it is a capital offense for a commoner to approach his
Majesty, yet, for the sake of my suffering brethren, I shall sacrifice mysolf
that their wrongs may bo made known
and happily righted. On the morrow,
therefore, do you all, except six men,
return to Soma and tell our poor friends
to have stout hearts, for there is yet
hope for them."
,    Sogoro had from the first boon recognized as the loading spirit of the enter
prise, and his companions now made
haste to follow out his suggestions.
Tho intropid fanner and his six associates drow up a new memorial, setting
forth    their   grievances  in a plain,
straightforward manner and earnestly
appealing for redress.    Shortly after,
while tho Shogun, Iyemitsu, was on bis
r   way to Uyeno to worship at the tombs
r   pf  bis ancestors, Sogoro contrived to
I    break through the troop of armed ro-
i     tainers that were escorting hiB Majesty,
,    and thrust tho petition into the bands
I   of the Shogun.   The daring farmer was
seizedandhurricdoff toprison. Iyemitsu
was a just ruler and gave the peasants'
memorial his careful attention.  The
,   result of it all was that Kotsuko-no-
Suko was ordered to reduce his tenants'
taxes to a proper amount, and to return
to them the money he had wrongfully
deprived them of I
The Lord of Soma was a very angry
man, but though he might rage and vow
vengeance upon the heads of his ten*
ants, he had to obey the orders of bis
chief. And thus relief came at last to
the long-suffering peasants.
But, alas for poor Sogorol The irrevocable law of tbe nation pronounced
his offense deserving of death, and he
was turned over to his legal Lord for execution. In feudal Japan the nobility
held the power of lite and death over
their peasant-vassals, and now the cruel
KotBuke-no-Suke, thirsting for .vengeance, determined to destroy the whole
family of Sogoro. In vain his tenants,
his Samurai, his councilors, and even
tho Princes ot the surrounding country
besought the lord of Soma to be merciful; the bloody tyrant was inexorable.
Sogoro and bis wife were condemned to
ho crucified, and their three sons, aged
seven, ten and thirteen respectively,
were ordered to be beheaded In the presence of their parents.
On the day of the execution all the
inhabitants of the one hundred and
thirty-six villages of Soma assembled to
bid Sogoro and his wife farewell and to
encourage them with their presence and
their prayers. There was not one there,
even to the executioners themselves,
that did not call down tho blessings of
Heaven upon the martyrs, while curses,
deep and bitter, wero hurled against
the hated Kotsuko-no-Suko. After tho
parents wero made fast to the crosses,
the three boys wore led forth and beheaded in their sight. Friends received
tho bodies and bore them away to prelum} them for burial. 0 Man, Sogoro's
wife, turning to ber husband, said in a
cheerful voice:
"Remember,* my husband, that from
tbo first you bod made up your mind to
this fate. What though our bodies bo
disgracefully exposed on these orossesV
we Havo tlio promises of tbe gods batons
us; therofore, mourn not. Let us fix
our minds upon death; we are drawing
noar to Paradise, and shall soon bo with
tho saints. Let us cheerfully lay down
our lives for tho good of our peoplo."
"Well said, wife," responded Sogoro,
gayty. "I am happy beoause I havo attained my heart's desire. Our petition
was successful; hud I five hundred lives,
and could I five hundred times assume
this shape of mine, 1 would die five
hundred times to redress the wrongs of
our people."
Then tho executioner taking his spear
thrust It into the side of 0 Man and into
the sido of her husband, and both died
there in the sight of the sorrowing
peasants. And Kotaitke-no-Suke's chief
councilor, when all was over, came and
knelt down beforo tho dead body of the
farmer and said:
'Although you were but a peasant,
you saved your brethron. You bruised
your bones and (.rushed your heart for
their sakes. Honors shall yet be paid
to your spirit, and you shall be canonized us a saint: you shall become a
tutelar deity among tho people of Soma,''
And so it came to pass. Tho farmers
of Soma made the grave of Sogoro a
plaue of prayer, and finally camo to
look upon him as divine. Finally a
temple arose in his honor, and he was
at length duly canonized as a Uuddhlst
saint.-W. C. Kitchln, Ph, U, in N. Y.

WHAR'S MY NIGGER?
A Gambling Story of tho (lood Old Ante-
Helium Days.
In tho month of January, 1800, in going down tlio big river from Vicksburg
lo Now Orleans, I happened to strike a
boat on v/hijih wore half a dozon professional gamhlorsj says a Kev/ York Sun
writer. There was a largo number of
other passengers and a game was going
on in tho cabin night and day. I happened to fall in with two young mon at
the start and incidentally learned that
they had been off on a speculation
which turned out disastrously and wero
returning home so close to dead broke
that thoy could only raise 830 between
them. On tho second night ono of
them camo into tho game with his
money and in tho course of un hour won
8700. Then luck shifted and ho was
cleaned out. As his last dollar went
tho banker inquired:
"Have you any thing to raise a stake
on?"
"Yes. Whar's my nigger?" was the
reply.
"Yore, Mars John!" answered a voice,
and a "young and likely," as it used to
bo to need, negro boy about twenty
years old entered the cabin and bowed
very humbly.
"Tliar's a nigger who is worth 81,000
iu gold," said the young man.    "How
much will you put against him?"
''Twelve hundred."
"Done I"
In just forty minutes the last dollar
was gone, luck and trickery being too
many for the young fellow, and as ho
rose up tho "banker" oallod out:
Luek seems to hate somo folks.
Whur's my nigger?"
No ono could answer, but a soaroh for
him was at once inatltutod. Threo or
[our men looked high and low, but ho
could not bo found, and ib wus finally
concluded that ho had gonfi overbourd,
Thero was a great doal ot "cussing
around," but tt didn't holp matters any,
and nil finally turned in for the night.
When I went to my state-room I found
tho wash-bowl full of black water, and a
strange coat and haton tho floor. I was
wondering over thoso things whon ono
or tho young mon camo in—the one who
bad not played.
"I camo to remove these things," ho
explained. "I got Into your room by
mistake, you see."
• Hut what does It mean?'
"It moans that I am tho 'nigger' who
was put against 81,300 and lost."
What an ideal"
Yes, wo ought to havo mado 81.000
apiece, but it was no go, Hope you'll
excuse my Intrusion and keep mum."
And all tho rest of the way down to
New Orleans the passengers mourned
the death of that "likely nigger," and
wondered whether he went right down
or died by inches.
Found n Roll of Hills.
He stood at a bar on Broadway siiuk-
ing diuo with tho bartender, says tho
Milwaukee Wisconsin, and, glancing at
the lloor, discovered a roll of bills, Tho
room was full of men, and if none of
them claimed tlio money tho bartender
would, so self-interest demanded that
ho should plok up the money vlthout
botng soun. He planted his foot upon
It, and tossed the dice while lie looked
for an opportunity lo grab tho roll.
When the bartender had "done" htm a
dozen times or more the opportunity
oame, und ho heaved a sigh of relief as
ho shoved tbe roll into his pocket. He
hastened to his office on the West Bide
to examine his find. Thero was twenty-
two dollars in the roll—just tho amount
ho had put In a roll In his othor pocket.
A thought flashed across his mind and
he dived into tho other pocket. The
roll waB gone. He had boon to all that
^trouble to pick up his own money.
A Cause of Much Profanity.,
• When a man runs a quarter of a mile
to catch a train, and jumps on tho platform of tho last car, "alloutof breath,"
as the locomotive steams out of tho station, be fools as If he had won a great
victory. But when tho train stops before It has proceeded fifty yards, backs
into the station and waits half an hour
tor some unexplained cause, he's mad
enough to blow up the whole business
with dynamite. But ho simply "blows
up" tho railroad company with his
mouth.

Impossible to trace a proverb back to its
origin. The birth of nearly every popular saying took placo In prehistoric

discover. Mr. Christy's studies havo
given to his conversation and speeches a
striking epigrammatic brilliancy.
—A London gossip gives the following story as illustrative of Lord Tennyson's "peoullar manners In society." In
his early days, when he had no greater
horror than that of being lionised, a
groat lady wished to introduce to tho
laureate a musician who had set somo
of his songs to music. A party was
given for tho occasion. Tho laureate
appeared, and tbe musician sang his
songs to him with evory power of expression that ho knew how to produce.
At the end of the performance evory
body waited tbo word of tho poet
Thero was a blank silence. The hostess
feared that the songs had not produced
a good impression. Tho silence became
agonizing. At length, from the corner
whore Tennyson sat camo a voice choking with emotion: "Do you not aee that
I am weeping?"
What Three Hours Brought.
An exceedingly pollto young gentleman handed a very protty girl into the
Capitol recently, and while looking for
the keeper of the building to havo tbo
door leading to the dome unlocked, ho
was hoard to address his companion as
"Miss AHoe," says the Atlanta Constitution. For threo hours the couplo remained leaning on the parapet and
talking of the sconery and othor things.
As they wero finally leaving tho build*
ing the young man was heard to ad-
dross the young lady as "my own darling precious sweetheart" It was
thought probable that he had not
wasted bis opportunity.
With Head to the North,
The superstitious belief that human
beings should sleep with their heads
towards the north is now believed to be
based upon a scientific principle. The
French Academy of Sciences has made
experiments upon the body of a guillotined man which go to prove that each
human body is In itself an electric battery, one electrode being represented
by the head and the other by the feet.
The body of the subject upon which
experiments were made was taken Immediately after death and placed upon a
pivot free to move In any direction.
After some vacillation the head portion
turned towards the north, the pivot-
board remaining stationary. One of the
professors turned It half way around,
but it soon regained a position with the
hood-piece to the north, and the same
results were repeatedly obtained until
organic movement ceased.

The  Public Health.
We publish two communications today on a subject which in the public interest demands some ventilation, viz.,
the converting of the old Royal Columbian Hospital buildings into dwelling
houses. One of our correspondents signs
his own name, and the other is perfectly responsible and qualified to speak on
the subject which be discusses. The
opening of this question is rather a disagreeable one, both for our correspondents and ourselves, inasmuch as private
interests are directly concerned. The
matter Ib one, however, which the public generally, and the health authorities
especially, have a right to investigate,
and it is solely in tlie public interest,
which demands it, that we give place iu
our columns to a discussion of tlie subject.

The Heudeliiohn Concert.
The concert given by the Mendelssohn
Quintette Club at Herring's Opera
House Inst night waa attended hy a fairly large audience. The programme was
excellent from beginning to end, every
item being perfect in style nnd pleasing
in each particular. Miss Hamlin's
singing was a downright treat, and a
most superior performance. Mr.
Ohliger, on the violin, and Mr. Henno-
berg, on the flute, made decided hits,
and tlielr music was probably the most
appreciated of the evening. Mr. Ryan's
clariuette solo was a grand effort, and
Mr. Drogo, on tho 'collo, drew music
from his instrument, the like of which
has never beforo beeu heard in this city.
Encores were responded to in several
instances, and the quintette won tho
heartiest appreciation from the entire
audience.

A Great llim.
The run of spring salmon at present
is admitted to be the greatest ever known
■on the Fraser river. The oldest fishermen are surprised at the continued
large catches, and cannot account for
the change except by crediting tho won
derful increase to the work of the hat
chery. Last night tho boats averaged.
25 fish each, the largest catcheB being 37
and 42 respectively. The fishermen are
being paid at the rate of a dollar each
for the fish, what might be considered
by modest people to be fair wages. A
day's wages amounting to $26, $37 or $42
ought to satisfy the poor fishermen, but
such is not the case.   If a fish is half
COAL AT BROWNSVILLE.
An Immense Vein of Lignite Discovered Within, a Mile of New
Westminster.
What may prove one of the most
-Billable discoveries ever made in this
district was struck at Brownsville yesterday in the shape of a monster vein of
lignite. Tlie find was made ou the
property of Mr. J. W. Stein, on the brow
of the hill quite near the Yale road.
Mr. Stein brought a large piece of the
lignite tp The Columbian office, where
it can be seen by anyone who may take
the trouble to call. It is a piece of the
cropping, and weighs some 20 lbs. When
dry it bums freely, but of course is not
a marketable article. Mr. Stein hss
developed the vein to the depth
of six feet, but has not struck
bottom yet. He will cut into the mass
next week, nnd hopes to develop an
excellent quality of marketable coal.
Miners who have seen the sample feel
confident that good coal will be found
beneath the coppinge, but thiB is a matter which can only be proved by development,   .
The location of tlie strike is only a
mile from Westminster, and consequently if the discovery proves valuable
this city will reap bonents undreamed
of a week ago. It is no secret that Mr.
Bowman, of the geological survey, found
excellent prospects of coal near Westminster last your, nud this may be an
outcropping of the satno vein. The
Royal City may yet become an active
competitor of Nanaimo in supplying the
const with black diamonds.

It was pretty clear, from tbe evidence,
that Howell had fallen off the wharf ou
Saturday night. His cabin, in which he
lived with his wife and child, is close by
the mill and floats on the water when the
tide Ib in, and Howell, while intoxicated, had probably wandered about the
mill yard unable to distinguish bis way
till he came to the edge of the wharf,
when he fell in. There were no marks
of violence on the body. The fact that
the body waa not found sooner was accounted for by Officer Grady, who said
that it lay face downward, and unless

Fur Reals   In   the Klver.
For the first time iu the memory of
tho oldest fishermen the genuine fur
son) lias been seen in the Fraser River.
Several have made their appearance
since Monday and have been seen by
the fishermen, who, of course were not
prepared to effect their capture. This
morning a very large fur seal bobbed up
almost opposite the foot of Begbio street,
and disported itself close to tbe wharf
for a tew moments. Attention was
called to it by a fisherman, and a general rush was made for fire arms to kill
it. But it disappeared before a rifle
could be procured and was not seen
again during the day. The fact that
fur seal have invaded tlie Fraser river is
admitted to be rather strange, but it is
argued that the animals are getting disgusted with their treatment hy Uncle
Sam iu Behrings Sea, and have decided
to move down and occupy our river,
which is a mare clavsum to the American fishermen at least.

The sealing schooner Annie C. Moore,
Capt Steward, owned by Capt. Huckett,
arrived at Victoria on Thursday with 91
skins. The captain reports having had
only three days that tlie boats could go
out nt all, the weather being very boisterous. The seals were very thick during December and January, but at present there aro few to be seen, nud it is
thought that they are further north this
season than they have been in any
previous year.
The Annie C. Moore requiring to be
hauled on the ways preparatory to going
north, it was thought prudent by the
captain to do so at once, as sealing off
the coast is unprofitable. The following
schooners wero Bpokon: Beatrice, 60
skins; Sea Lion, 130; Sapphire, 121;
Triumph, 125.
Capt. Cox of the Triumph repotted
having spoken the following schooners:
Mollie Adams, l.'Il skins; Sayward, 80;
Ariel, 130; Black Diamond, 160; Pathfinder, 66; Minnie, 143; Henry Dennis,

Pure Imagination.
Truth published an article this morning of a startling nature, to the effect
that the C. P. N, Co. had purchased the
steamers Rainbow aud Amelia from
Messrs. Turner, Beeton & Co., and that
the former vessel would be withdrawn
from the Westminster-Victoria route.
The report waB absolutely incorrect in
every detail as the following telegrams
will prove:
Victoria, Mar. 21.
Mathers & Miixigan,
Westminster,
No truth whatever in report that Rain-
lww sold to Canadian Pacific Navigation
Co.
(Signed.)   Turner, Burton & Co,

Mathers & Milmoan,

Notwithstanding the above telegrams,
there is a groat deal of Truth in the report, but, of course, no veracity.

Wealth and Population.
The City Assessors completed their
labors yesterday, and tho full returns
have been handed to the City Treasurer.
The figures though not quite so large as
estimated in these columns a few days
ago are still a vast increase over tho assessment of last year, proving that the
city's wealth has been added to enormously within the twelvemonth. Following are the official returns:
Value of property within City limits.. .U,m,m

Value of tnxably property

. 2,ftlU,!MA
Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla;
Taxable proper!
ln«roase. 1890. 91,004,696
In 1888 the total value of taxable property did not reach $1,000,000, consequently the increase over 1889 alone is
more than the whole city assessment of
1888. Tho exemptions may seem very
large, and so they are, but it must be
taken into consideration the large area
of public property within the City limits.
The penitentiary and asylum grounds,
Queons Park, the public squares aud
buildings and all City property comes
under the head of exemptions. Tho
churches form only a Binall portion of
tho $903,000.
The assessors performed n double
duty, having takon the census of tho
City while making the assessment. It
was impossible to obtain exact figures
as to population, but it was ascertained
beyond doubt that tho number of inhabitants contained within tho City
is a trifle over 8,000. Those figures are
about what was expected. In 1887 the
population of Westminster was estimated nt 3.000;' now it is over 8,000 an
increase of 6,000 in less than three years,
and it ia quite safe to say tho papulation will liave increased to 10,000 by
the oud of the present year.
These figures prove beyond the poa-
sibilty of refutation that Westminster
is making more solid and substantial
progress than any city in the province.
Tho Royal City has not been boomed,
bolstered up by foreign capital or controlled by a great real estate ring, and
yet her progress has boon more satisfactory than ony of hor sister cities.
Volcanic Mount Baker.
Tiie late items iu the British Columbia
and Sound papers nnent the volcanic
action of Mount Baker, has culled forth
a communication from Mr. Valentine
V. Lowe, a well-known mountain
climber, who says iu the Bellinghnm.
Bay Reveille that the crater of Mount
Baker lies about two miles southwest of
tho dome, and is four or five thousand
feet in altitude. In his letter Mr.
Lowe writes:
It is a deep cavity iu the earth, almost a half mile in diameter and Is full
of thick layers of ice and snow. On the
west side of the crater, sentinel like,
stands a high mountain wall that probably, at one time, formed part of a peak
that covered the crater before it became
active. I do not claim to be a scientist
on the casuation and effect of volcanic
action, but it iB my opinion, judging by
my observation of the crater that it is
about extinct or burned out. Active
volcanoes generally emit smoke, Are and
lava from the top of some peak. As tlie
crater is several miles from and four or
Ave thousand feet lower than tho top of
Mount Baker, it is evident that when
people on the Sound claim to have Been
flames issuing from the top of the mountain that it is not in accordance with
the facts and that their imagination is
somewhat deceptive.

The Times'   Special Issue.
As it has been threatening to do for
some weeks past the Victoria Times
issued its great 30,000 edition special
number on Wednesday last. The
paper, a copy of which has come to
hand, without, strange to Bay, delaying
the mails or sinking the Victoria-West'
minster ferry steamer, is just throe
times the size of the Times1 usual daily
issue, and contains, besides the ordinary news of the day, a great deal of interesting specinl matter, descriptive of
the capital city and Vancouver Island,
with a brief running notice of the other
unimportant sections of tho Province.
Othor features are several vety presentable illustrations of somo of the fine
churches and other handsome buildings
for which Victoria is famous, a full page
lurid t. literally red) real estate advertisement, a number of special articles on
subjects of general provincial interest,
and a few mild whoppers, excusable,
perhaps, under all the circumstances.
The Times explains that its special issue
does not attempt to be provincial in it's
scope, but to give a concise and comprehensive statement of the resources
of Victoria. Tbo number, it must be
said, fulfills it's object well, is creditable
to the enterprising publishers, and it's
large circulation abroad cannot fail to
prove of much benefit to the capital
city.

Tho Opium Trade
Kwong Ou Tai, one of the largest
opium dealers iu Victoria, has closed his
store on account of tho dullness of business, which is attributed to the large
decrease during the last few years of
tho Chinese population, nud also to the
fact that not so much of the drug is being smuggled into the States. The
firms of Sing Wo Chang and Lung
Chung are also contemplating going out
of the business ou the same account.
These three firms are about the largest,
with the exception of Tai Yuno, iu Victoria, and have all invested large sums
of money in thoir trade.
In conversation with a Colonist reporter, Tai Yuno. the largest dealer iu
tho province, said that during tho last
four yeara the Chinese population of
Victoria had dwindled down from 7,000
to less than 3,000. He also said that
the targe dealers would sooner pay the
$600 license than $100, as, if the latter
sum was instituted for the $600 tax, a
large number of small firms would
spring up. Several other dealers were
called upon and they nil complained of
the slackness of business, which had
beeu diminishing for the last few years
ou account of the lessened Chinese population. Somo also thought that the
action of tho bricklayers union in refusing to work on buildings with Chinamen would force many more Chinamen
to leave town.
A llanrisoiiio Presentation.
Two handsome silver cups nre now on
view in Mr, F. Crako's jewelry establishment which aro to be presented to the
New Westminster Rifle Association by
His Honor Judge Bolo, for competition
at the next annual meeting. The first
is a largo and elaborately designed silver cup with gold lining, 13 inches high.
The bowl Is mounted on three crossed
rifles, circled with a wreath of oak
leaves, tho arms resting on a broad and
handsomely finished base. On the front
of tho cup is engraved "N. W. R. A.
presented hy Judge Bole"; on the reverse side is a miniature target. It is
understood that this cup will nave to bo
won twice in succession In order to become the property of any person. The
second cup is also very handsome, though
not so elaborate as tho first. It will be
offered for competition at the first prize
meeting of the association.
Those generous gifts from Judge Bole
will lie most heartily appreciated by the
members of tho association, more particularly perhaps as thoy aro presented
unasked, nnd for the simple purpose of
making the prize meetings more popular aud valuable than ever. Judge Bole
himself Is a crack shot with both rifle
and revolver, nnd It is only natural that
ho should endeavor by theao gifts to further the interest in target practice. It
is to ho hoped many of our wealthy citizens will follow in llis Honor's footsteps,
and add further trophies to those at
present in the hands of the association.

An Eastern cotemporary of the Liberal stripe makes tlie following rather unkind remarks about the Minister of the
Interior: The Conservative members
representing Manitoba and tbe Northwest are very much dissatisfied with the
manner in which the Minister of the Interior has failed to develop, Several
times they have represented to Sir John
Macdonald that Mr. Dewdney was no
good. They claim that he has not mastered the affairs of his department, that
he cannot defend himself in the House,
and that when he undertakes to read
statements or speeches prepared by his
deputy, he betrays an utter absence of
ability as an elocutionist. A deputation
of Northwest members agreed to wait
upon Mr. Dewdney tho other day to tell
him what they thought of him, but the
result of the interview has not been ascertained.
