since he had an attack of 1st
Grippe, and from which he lias not fully
recovered. He will stay in Europe
about two months. Murphy's connection with the Erie dates back a quarter
of a century, when he acted as messenger, boy. He soon became telegraph

Sedgwick In the Superior Court, said he
could see no reason for granting bucIi a
motion.      '
Angry Bismarck.
London, March 26.—Berlin correspondents say that Prince Bismarck is in
a very bad temper. His usual sangfroid
seems to have disappeared, and he vents
his choler upon all who are in his displeasure. The allegation in some of the
Government organs that he showed disloyalty in resigning seems to have especially angered him, and he has freely
denounced tlie press in terms, indicating that he has little belief in the honesty of German journalism. His friends
are surprised that he should stoop to notice the attacks of obscure or venal scribblers. Others are unkind enough to refer to the famous "Reptile fund," as the
Prince termed it in one of his speeches,
and to intimate that German political
journalism would have been less open
to suspicion if Prince Bismarck had
never tempered with some sections of it.
Atrocious Murder.
Sombbbville, Tcnn., Mar. 28.—A singularly atrocious murder was committed
here this morning, the victim being Mrs.
SalHe Hobson (colored), and the murderer was her 11-year old boy. On her
husband's return from a short walk in
the morning a terrible' sight met his
eyes. On one side of the door lay the
decapitated remains of his wife and
several feet away her head. A stick
of wood on which her neck had been
placed when the cutting was done,
showed three distinct cuts of an axe.
The boy was found playing with the
other children; his clothing saturated
witli blood. He at first claimed that
the blood came from a chicken which he
had killed, but at the coroner's- inquest
he admitted that he committed the
crime. He said hiB mother laid her
head down on the block and told him if
he did not cut her head off she would
kill him. The boy has been jailed,
pending a further investigation.
OTTAWA NOTES.
[special to THE COLUMBIAN.!
Ottawa, Mir. 26.—The House met
this afternoon. Nothing of importance
occurred and there are not over fifty
members in the House.
Hon. Mr. Foster is not present and
the budget speech iB indefinitely postponed.     ^^^^^^^^^
A Very Long Street.
YeBterday tlie sportive types—or something else—made us Bay in an item
referring to the Btreet improvements
loan by-law, that .18,000 was appropriated in tlie by-law for extending Columbia Street west from Dock Square to tbe
Royal Columbian Hospital. As tho
Royal Columbian Hospital is iu the
east end of the city, the intelligent
reader will perceive that, to reach that
building by a westward extension, Columbia Street would have to go on a
globe-circling expedition, a la the late
lamented Christopher Columbus and
that enterprising "fly on the wheel,"
George Francis Train.' Westminster Ib
ambitious and is " getting there with
both feet," but she hasn't yet made arrangements to collar tlio earth. The
item Bhould have stated that Columbia
Street would be extended west, along
Richard Street aud through Dock Square,
to the western city limits, and east to
tlio Royal Columbia Hospital.

Mine Hour* a Day*
Tlie meeting of carpenters and joiners
at Hyack Hall last night was not so
largely attended bb expected, but it was
influential in its composition, and unanimous hi actio!.. The object of tlie
meeting wbb to discuss tho "nine hour"
question, and to arrange a thorough
understanding in tbe matter. Mr. A. G.
McDonald was elected to the chair. Mr.
Turnbull explained that the League and
the contractors had been in negotiation
regarding the number of hours to constitute a day's work; that the nine-hour
arrangement had been agreed on, but
the question o! employing Chinese labor
for rough work on contracts had not
beeu perfectly adjusted. He advised
moderation iu pressing the claim, and
urged the carpenters to allow the contractors to employ unskilled labor as
they thought best. Orr motion it was
unanimously decided that on Tuesday,
April 1st, tho carpenters should stop
work at 0 p. in., and demand 0 hours as
a day's work. After a few speeches on
the subject tho mooting adjourned.

Captured at Last.
George B. Keith, an insane man, who
has been a constant terror to tlio people
of Surrey for tho last six months, is now
safely confined to the Provincial gaol.
ThiB man has boen in the habit of stalking about the country armed with a
Winchester repeating rifle, and threatening the lives of people whenever his
worst attacks of insanity were on. On
more than one occasion he has actually
fired on people, but fortunately without
effect. Last September he frightened
the wits out of tne people of Blaine by
firing into several buildings and taking
an off-hand shot at anyone who appeared on the street. A lynching party was
organized after this event to entertain
Keith, but he disappeared and was not
heard of for some time afterwards.
Yesterday Keith went to the house of
Mr. Samuel Walker, a Surrey rancher,
and said he was going to shoot him. He
raised the rifle for thiB purpose, and
Walker ran round the house, the Iiibuiio
man following, but unable to get a shot.
Finally Walker got away got away and
laid an information against Keith before
Mr. H. T. Thrift, J. P. Special constables wore detailed to effect tho crazy-
man's capture and tliey succeeded. He
was taken to Brownsville, and, the Surrey Justices flot wishing to act in tho
cose, Reeve Punch sent over for Capt.
Pittendrigh to take it. After hearing
the evidence Capt. Pittendrigh ordered
Keith to furnish ball to the amount of
$600 to keep the peace. Keith was unable to supply the ball and was accordingly committed, brought to the city
aud handed over to Mr. Moresby. He
will be examined by a medical board and
probably committed to the Provincial
asylum.
When searched at the police station a
large box of opium was found in one of
his pockets, enough to poison half of the
city. In another pocket was a bottle of
whiskey and a glass, also some fancy
pictures of nude females, letters, papers
and other articles.
Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla.
PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT,
Tuesday's Proceedings.
I From Our Own Correspondent.!
Mr. Speaker took the chair at 2:10 p.
m.   PrayerB by Rev. Arthur Beanlands.
The reports of the committee of supply were considered and adopted in detail. The complete report wbb read a
first and second time and adopted.
Hon. Mr. Davie rose to a question of
privilege to complain of a misreport of
his remarks in the Colonist. In his
speech on Mr. Grant's amendment to
the Municipal Act he had no intention
of injuring in any way tho B. C. Loan
and Investment Co. His remarks had
probably not .been explicit enough hence
the error.
The Hon. Mr. RobBon rose to a question of privilege. It was with somo reluctance that he called attention to some
rn-rors in tlie report of his remarks, published in The Columbian newspaper a
i'ew days ago. Ho would not have taken
notice .of. the matter, were it not that
the newspaper in question enjoyed a
very large circulation iu tho district lie
had the lionor of representing, and lie
did not wish to bo placed in a false position before his constituents.      j
In the course of the debate upon the
subject of admitting quartz mining machinery, oh Wednesday last'," he wat
made to say that one of the representatives of B. C. at Ottawa was making a
nobJo effort in favor of the free admission of such machinery; whereas lie had
said that all our representatives wero
doing bo.
During his speech on the estimates he
is reported to have said: ".The honorable the leader of the Opposition had let
him (the speaker) off very easily in bis
general attack on the Government. One
of the principal complaints against him
was that he could never be found in his
ofllce. All he could Bay in reply to that
charge was that he bad a home, a family
circle, a fire side of his own, within a few
paces of that office and it was only natural that he should go # there when it
was so easy to find him if wanted."
(Laughter.) Now, the facts were the very
opposite. The leador of the Opposition
had paid him the compliment of Baying
ho could always be found at his office.
Again, later on, he is represented as
having inade tho following extraordinary statement: "He took that charge,
of the member for Cassiar, that they
were never to be found in their offices
to be the highest compliment that had
ever been paid to any Government."
(Loud laughter.) What he referred to
as the highest compliment that could be
paid to any Government was tlie statement blurted out by the member for
Cassiar to the effect that "there was no
chance for a change of Government. so
tongas the present policy .waB pursued."
Replying to a remark that The Columbian was a Government organ, the honorable gentleman said the paper was entirely independent and waB.. one of the
most respectable and influential papers
in the Province, and he took occasion to
compliment the reporter upon his reports generally, although in this particular instance these very embarrassing
and amusing inaccuracies bad occurred
iu an otherwise able report.
Tho Westminster Street Railway Bill,
Mr. Cunningham, passed its third read-
lion. Mr. Robson moved tho adoption
of the report on the Koyal Columbian
Hospital Bill,. Report udopted and bill
reaa a third and last time.
Hon. Mr. Robson laid before the
House a supplementary rcturtrof provincial voters.
Hon. Mr. Robson presented < messages
from the Lieutenant-Governor with the
County Courts bill and the bill to want
lands for charitable purposes. Alterations and additions were recommended
in regard to the latter bill. The. messages and enclosures were ordered to be
referred to the committee of tho whole
on Wednesday.
Hon. Mr. Robson moved tho second
roading of the Shuswap and Okanagan
Railway Bill. This bill was well understood by the House. By the previous
Acta money subsidy had been provided, the intention of the present bill
was to change the subsidy to a guarantee of interest. The road itself was
about fifty miles in length, but it joined
a great water way and opened up perhaps tho moBt fertile district of British
Columbia, The honorable gentleman
painted in glowing colors the beauties
and richness ef that part of the country
and the advantages to be derived by the
building of this line of railway. It was
quite probable that this short piece of
railway might become atnO distant date
a link in the chain of railways reaching into the great district of Kootenay. The arrangement of guaranteeing 4% of the coat of the railway, without considering the return of the
Dominion subsidy or the receipt of a
percentage of tho earnings of the roads,
was much better than tho arrangement
which had previously oxisted. Tho
Province was not likely to be called
upon to pay a dollar. The railway
would be Bclf-Bustaining from the commencement and would pay within five
years a dividend. The agreement which
existed with tho C. P. R. ensured the
constant operation of the road, as it provided, among othor valuable considerations, what wbb known as a "short
haul" for grain to the coast.
Tho agreement contained in the hill
viewed from no matter what standpoint
Would bo highly advantageous to this
Province The Province was to be congratulated upon the good bargain they
had made and he had much pleasure iu
moving tho second rending of the bill.
(Applause). Bill road a second time
and committed, Mr. Grant in the chair.
The bill was reported complete with
amendments.

reading of tho bill lo grant n land subsidy to tho Columbia and Kootenay Railway Company, which was proposed and

The Wrong Man Described—Night Sessions at the House—A Great Actor

Allen, H.P.F.   _
\From Our Own Correspondent,]
Victoria, Mar. 24.—The remarks
made In last week's letter about scenes
up the george will, in the light of later
information in regard to one of the characters described, bear some qualification. This is done in justice to the
gentleman named in that pen-picture.
Ihe drunken fellow who made the place
hideous with his disgraceful behavior
was not Mr. Labelle, the "smuggler-
king," but a "tough" of the worst kind
who waB enjoying himself after bis own
fashion. The informant of your correspondent mistook Mr. Labelle for this
fellow, hence the error. Mr. Labelle, be
it known, is one of Victoria's most
dressy young men; is handsome and Is
noted for hiB almost courtly manners.
Tho slander on Mr. Labelle's teeth also
requires "taking back," as the Yankees
say; the dental possessions of Mr.
Labelle are pearly in whiteness and
beautifully even aud small. He naturally felt rather Indignant to be sketched
with Hitch an excessively GuetaveDorean
crayon and in such Edgar Allan Poea-
que shades, and this explanation is
justly his due.
night sessions.
The arrival of the night sessions in
the House haa been welcomed by all
doing business In and around that institution. The close of the session is
rapidly drawing near, and the House is
likely to rise in about a fortnight from
the present date.
vobteb's sluggebs.
Prof. Foster and a number of his
pupils took a trip to Vancouver last
Saturday to show the Terminal City
people what the Victoria gymnasium
could produce. Financially the trip
wbb not a glittering success, out everyone voted the exhibition the best of the
kind ever seen in Vancouver. The professor and his class will probably go to
Nanaimo on a similar expedition Saturday week.

boating, shipping, ktc.
Mr. James Seeley, Victoria's famous
oarsman, is going into training this
spring for business purposes. Mr. See-
ley's shell will be a prominent object on
tho harbor during the fine mornings,
tho next month or so.
The hull of the str. Islander looks
rather weather-worn and inlack of fresh
paint.
The daily traffic of the street cars represents a very considerable sum; those
popular vehicles are a great convenience
to the working people, who can now ride
home comfortably to their dwellings in
the Buburbs for a small sum. Contrary
to expectation, the cars have not interfered with the business of the hackmen
to any great extent.
ATHLETES  AND MINSTRELS.
The James Bay Athletic Club will be
an institution of which Victoria will
have some cause to feel pround. The
club house will be situated close to the
water's edge, and acqatics will therefore
form one of the great attractions. A
magnificently appointed gymnasium,
under the directorship of a properly
qualified, certificated graduate of one of
tlie great physicial training schools of
tho east, will cater to the directly muscular wants of the members, while outdoor sports will receive attention on the
club grounds and cinder-path.
There is a talk of the Vancouver Amateur Minstrel Club paying Victoria a
visit at an early date. If they come,
they will probably get a better reception
than the Victoria Athletic Company got
in Vancouver.
miscellaneous notes,
Mr. E. Allen, member for Lillooet, is
very seriously ill.
The Vancouverites are excessively indignant at the slight given them in the
Times' map of the Province.   They take
Sarticular umbrage at the picture of the
isreputable canal-barge going to pieces
on the classic rocks that gird Stanley
Park. They say the presence of this
emblem of ruin is "the most unkindest
cut of all." They hope to get back at
the Queen City in desperate style before
very long, and Victoria will be made to
look so insignificant that she will need
a written excuse for existing at all.
FORT LANGLEY ITEMS.
(From Our Own Correspondent:.
Your townsman, Mr. E. P. Stickney,
was here last week, in search of horses
for his work in tho Royal City. He,
however, failed to secure suitable animals
for his purposes; but, crossing the river,
he succeeded in getting what lie wanted
at Port Haney from our enterprising
neighbor, Mr. T. F. Sinclair, well-known
in your parts as a contractor for useful
public works, always executed with skill
and satisfaction.
Another of your respected citizens,
Mr. William Bovill, is also here on a
visit to hiB brother, no doubt with observant eyes noting what real estate can
be recommended to his clients in thiB
promising and salubrious part of the
Province.
Your account of the solemn ceremonies
of the Masonic body in laying the foundation stone of the new parish building,
St. Leonard Hall, was read with much
interest, and was most useful and
instructive in giving Information to the
outside community as to the governing
principles and sound basis of the craft.
Bible readers will recognize in the proceedings a parallel to the account of the
dedication of the great Jewish Temple,
by King Solomon, and will, it is hoped,
be favorably impressed with tlie sublime
ideas which should possess the mind on
such memorable occasions.
Our weather has been very unpropiti-
oub here, as yet, for soring work, but,
notwithstanding, the farmers are busy
looking after thoir stock, and tending
their lambs, whicli dropped in goodly
numbers during tlio severe and ungenial
period just experienced.
The river steamers, Gladys and Adelaide, continue their trips up and down
stream with commendable regularity,
although they have to contend with
almost exceptional shallow water. From
this port tney receive goodly custom,
both in freight and passengers. At present their arrivals and departures are
uncertain, but it is hoped that a remedy
will be found for this defect during the
season as it involves, at this period especially, Iosb of time to those waiting
Jor the boats to shin or receive goods
which otherwise would bo more profitably employed,

WIFE BEATING.
• Cases of wife beating, happily, have
to be chronicled very rarely in this city,
but to-day we are obliged to note the
fact of a human brute having been
caught in the revolting act.    Wife beating would appear to be a passion with
some men, as kleptomania Ib said to be
with some women.    The  record of the
man Burwick  shows him to  be an old
offender, and this seems to be characteristic of the wife beater.    As a rule,
they are all "old offenders,"  to use a
slight Hibernian-sin.    When they get
angry or drunk—and they will nearly
always be found to be,  more or less,
hard drinkers—and reach that stage
where other men would content them
selves with using bad language, tackling
a man of their size  on  the  street, or
kicking a yellow dog around the barn,
the miserable, cowardly blackguards bethink them of their favorite drunken
pastime of "taking it out on the 'old
woman' "—cruelly beating and kicking
the wife of their bosom, who very often
in such cases id the supporter of tho
family, and, in additition to her own
duties, keeps the worthless brute who
abuses her from  starving.    Wife beating, as we have intimated, appears to be
a chronic complaint in most instances,
and the   fiend   who   indulges in It
has been proved to be almost incorrigible.   He Ib certainly not, as a rule,
amenable to moral suasion, or ordinary
methods of punishment.   But society is
bound- to protect the unfortunate woman
who may be linked to such a man, from
his brutal treatment.   The law must interpose on her behalf, and if light sentences will not work a cure, there aro the
two alternatives of permanent imprisonment, or the lash.    Of the two, the latter is the cheaper, nud has proved effective before with a certain class of criminals that nothing else, apparently, would
reach.   If wife beating ia innate with
Borne men, "bred in the bone," so to
speak, which facts would seem to indicate, the moat effective way to cure it is,
undoubtedly,  to "take it out of the
hide."
Italy, under milder suns and with a rainfall more abundant than thatof Ontario,
proves even more conclusively the value
of the system.
The power and wealth of several ancient empires may be ascribed to the
same source, aud the fate of these nations to war having destroyed the irrigating canals and left the people too impoverished to repair and maintain them.
Babylonia and Assyria were intersected
everywhere by canals, which, in many
instances, served the purposes both of
irrigation and navigation.
The former country had a main canal
600 feet wide and one thousand miles
long. It is probably to these canals
and their effects that Jeremiah referred
when he said: "O thou that dwellest
" upon many waters, abundant in trees-
" ures." When the canals failed Babylon could not recover herself. "Her
" cities" became "a desolation, a dryland, and a wilderness." The ancient
power of Arabia was largely due to the
same cause. ThiB great canal which irrigated the valley of Mareb had its
source in a dam two miles long and 120
feet high, in the province of Yemen.
So much was the advantage appreciated
of having full crops every year, instead
l of the frequently deficient crops which
most countries dependent on rainfall
have to put up with, that the people
did not hesitate to build this dam with
huge blocks of dressed stone. The dam
and its canal lasted for two thousand
years and made Yemen the dominant
power of the Arabian peninsula.
With the drought difficulty overcome
tho irrigable portions of the west will
have few climatic drawbacks. Continuous sunshine and dry air become sources
of pleasure, instead of causes of apprehension, when a farmer knows that they
will not diminish, but will rather increase, the yield of his fields.
Everyone will hope that the efforts of
the Government to ascertain the practicability of irrigation hy means of artesian wells in the interior, may be
crowned with success, as the scheme, if
it can be practically carried out, will
convert an extensive area, that is now,
little better than a wilderness, into one
of the most productive and promising
agricultural districts of the Province.

CHILLIWACK NOTES.
Mr. W. E. Brookes' residence, a two-
storey, (2,000, house, situated about
half a mile from Centrevllle, was burned to the ground last Wednesday. The
fire commenced between 10 and 11 o'clock, in the rear part of the house and
in less than an hour the building was
i reduced to ashes. AU the furniture,
j including a valuable piano was saved
! from the front part of the house, but
the kitchen furniture, embracing a valuable China Bet, was totally destroyed.
There waB no insurance. Two or three
young men arrived on the scene quickly
after the fire started and worked liked
.Trojans to extinguish it with buckets,
| but their efforts were unavailing, owing
to their not being backed up by numbers. By the time the fire was fairly
under way upwards of ono hundred
people had assembled, and good work
wasdonein saving the furniture. While
, the fire was at its height the interest
'and excitement were considerably intensified by the continual popping of
a large number of cartridges in the
house. A loaded firearm or two also
added to the spiciuess of the occasion
when the fire reached them, and
after the fire a bullet hole was found in
, an adjacent barn, aa one result of the
! involuntary fusilade. Mr, Brookes and
family have moved into an old house on
the premises in the meantime, and will
Bet about building a new residence immediately.
The well-known firm of Henderson
Bros, completed arrangements for the
sale of their general stock of merchandise on Tuesday last (18th inst.) to Martin Bros., of Calgary, N.W.T., who will

THE IRRIGATION QUESTION.
The question of irrigation, as our
friend of the Timet, whose thoughts seein
on the slightest provocation to run to
water, is wont to remark, is one which
is of considerable interest to this Province, when it is remembered that we
havo a large tract of comparatively un-
watered land in the interior, that, with
the magic touch of water, in regular and
sufficient quantities, would bloom as a
garden.   Irrigation bymeansofartesian
wells is considered the most practicable
system of watering this arid region of
great possibilities, and to this end the
Government is cautiously conducting
boring experiments to test the practicability of the scheme.   The sntn of $3,000
has already been spent, without any appreciable result, and, as the estimates
will show, $6,000 more has just been
appropriated for the purpose, wnlch indicates that the Government believes it
is worth while, in view of the benefits
that would accrue to the interior and the'
Province at large in the event of success,
to persevere in the test borings for artesian wells awhile longer.   Knowing the
value to the. whole Province which artesian wells would prove, if by this means
a large and comparatively non-productive tract In the interior could be reclaimed and brought into bearing, the
Government will have the general endorsement of the patriotic people of the
Province in its search for water, so long
as too much money is not "blown in" in
fruitless endeavors.   The Timet, Indeed,
professes to be " put out" because the
Government doesn't go it heavier on the
irrigation business—make irrigation In
short a "policy," a "fad."   The Time,
shouldn't get so feverish on the question.
It is pretty safe to predict that the Government will display all tho enterprise
it can afford to in the matter, once it
has been practically demonstrated that
the artesian well scheme will do what is
expected, or rather hoped, of it in the
npper country.
There can be no two opinions on the
value of irrigation as an aid of agriculture, where the rainfall is not sufficient
to support vegetable life In anything like
a thriving condition. Indoed, where the
means of irrigation can be cheaply and
easily applied, and crops thus watered
at will, the farmer who depends upon
irrigation, and by this means practically
controls the times and the amount of
moisture, and can set drought, partial or
complete, at defiance, has the advantage
' over his brother who must take the rain
as he gets it, be the occasion seasonable
or otherwfse, and tlie quality excessive
or insufficient. So it comes to pass that
a dry region, having irrigation facilities,
is actually more largely and uniformly
productive, othor things being equal,
than a tract of country where sunshine
and rain alternate throughout the season, with varying regularity. Commenting on this question of irrigation,
an eastern cotemporary makes the following Interesting observations:
Throughout the whole of the arid and
subarid west the irrigation question has
risen to a place of first importance. The
region is a vast one, in which the rainfall Ib too scanty for the needs of agriculture. It embraces by far the larger
portion of the United States. But of its
billion acres a hundred and twenty-five
million at least are so situated as to admit of irrigation. This area alone is
sufficient for a mighty empire. And
the significant and encouraging fact appears that irrigated land is capable of
sustaining a denser agricultural population than can subsist on land that depends upon even a copious rainfall.
Those parts of India which are fully provided with Irrigating canals show by
their largo farming population and their
uniformly abundant crops tho utility of
regular and easily regulated supplies of
water for tho fields,' while the north of
The Ghicuge Inter-Ocean, which is protectionist to the back-bone, loudly calls
for a duty on eggs. The imports of eggs
into the United States last year amounted, it says, to 16,000,000 dozen, and yet
the price has not como down nor the
poor man been benefited. It may bo
quite true that the price has not fallen,
but let the proposed duty of five cents a
dozen be imposed, and the poor man
will very soon find that he will have to
pay several cents more per dozen for
his eggs than he does at present,—Mail.
Although the Tiehborne claimant was
unable to put up his election expenses
in the Stoke-upon-Trent election the
other day the last has not been heard of
him. It is stated in England that his
case is to bo re-opened in April, a fund
having been raised to defray the necessary expenses. The pertinacity of the
man Is remarkable, for though he has
the incentive of making a living out of
notoriety his persistent attempts to keep
up the claim against the Tiehborne
estates argues something more than a
desire to make money out of notoriety.
—Ex.
The reply of the Prince nf Wales' private secretary to the rumours that the
Prince and Princess contemplated visiting America this year for the benefit of
theirhealth was as follows: "There is
not a word of truth in the statnient,
though I feel sure that the Prince and
Princess of Wales would much enjoy a
visit to Canada and Newfounland.
With -reference to the allusion to thoir
royal highnesses' health, I may mention
that they were never bettor in their
lives." That seems to settle the rumors
which Canadians would be glad to know
were true, as far as a visit to this Dominion is concerned.—Ex.
The Berlin conference, observes an exchange, will be called upon to discuss
five questions relating to the regulation
of labor in tho mines, Sunday labor,
and the employment of children, youths
and women. It is a somewhat curious
coincidence that on the very day of the
opening of the conference a coal miners'
strike was being inaugurated in England
and Wales which will, it is estimated,
directly involve no less than 260,000
men, women and children. The strikers demand two advances of five per
cent, in their wages, one now and the
other in July next. H.re is a striking
objeet lesson for the conference.
The following slory is told of the great
popular American preacher of the day:
The Rev. Dr. T. De Witt Talmage pro-
fesses to be a lover of books, and yet he
does a thing that no real book lover
could do. If in the midst of writing a
sermon he needs a quotation, be seizes
the volume that contains it and tears
out the desired page with ruthless hand.
Then, taking his shears, he cuts out the
particular passage he needs, and pasting
it en hia manuscript page, tosses the
book aside. There is scarcely a book in
his library that is not so multilated.
"But what do you do when you wish to
refer to such a passage again?" a reporter asked him- "I never want to refer to it again," he answered senten-
tiously. "When I have used it once, I
am done with it for good."
Says London Trull i Emperor William
has not prohibited duelling in the Gorman army, as lias been stated by several of my contemporaries. But no duel
is in future to take place until tbere has
been- a thorough inquiry into all the
circumstances by two colonels, who are
to allow an encounter only (1) if the
provocation was a public assault, to
which an apology has been refused; or
(2) when an insult has been offered to a
lady who is a relation or tho betrothed
of the challenger. Under no circumstances, however, Is a duel to be permitted when tho quarrel has arisen out
of a brawl in a club room, coffee-house,
or any similiar place, when one of the
parties bos already been "out" three
times, or where one of the parties is a
married man with children.
Whether Lord Randolph Churchill
has steered his political course wisely or
not may be matter for opinion, but few
will question the wisdom of the advice
he gave the other day at Paddlngton
with reference to the necessity for effective organization. He said: "The work
of organization is in reality the life of
modern political parties, and where political parties come to grief either In localities or generally throughout the
country, the cause is almost invariably
to be found in defeetlve or neglected organisation, lean well remember the
condition of things in 1874. At that

Ad International Question.
Yesterday morning the owners of the
■ American tug Mogul called at the Cus-
tum House here and made a deposit,
under protest, of $800, the amount demanded by Inspector Young for what
he claimed was a violation of the towing law. The circumstances of the case,
which opens up an international question as to what constitute Canadian
waters in the Straits of Fuca, wero ex-
Klained by Inspector Young briefly as
illowa: The Mogul, he alleged, had
violated the Customs laws in two in-
stances—once last fall, and once about
three weeks ago—in accepting ships
, and towing through Canadian waters in
the Straits. The Mogul was accordingly libelled for $400 in each instance, and
in order that their legitimate business
might not be interfered with the owners
immediately deposited the sums named,
pending the consideration of the point
at issue by the authorities at Ottawa,
to whom full data of the case has been
forwarded.
The stand taken by the Mogul's owners is that the 3-mile limit prevails in
regard to tho Straits; Inspector Young
says that the international boundary ia
the centre of the Straits. Should the
former contention be sustained the loss
| to Victoria tugmen will be very consid-
erablo.— Sunday's Colonist.

PEOPLE OF TACT.
To Host Women This Valuable
Possession Ib Inborn.
AnoototM of Man and Woman Who la
Trying Situation! Haw _K»rd_wd
Tact, Much to the Pmm of
Und of All Concerned.
To be able to say the right thing at
the right moment Is a great art, and
said only to be acquired hy those who
nave a natural talent that way. When
a careless talker, who was criticising a
young lady's father severely, paused a
moment to say; "I hope he Is no relation of yours, Miss B—?" qulok as
thought Bhe replied, with the utmost
nonchalance: "Only a connection ot
mother's by marriage."
, Few oould hope to show such clever
readiness of speeoh In a dilemma of the
kind, says Chambers' Journal. Yet In
a more curious and amusing way this
was almost matched by a cautious old
woman, who, when asked what she
thought ot one of her neighbors of the
name of Jones, with a knowing look replied: "Why, I don't like to say any
thing about my neighbors; but as to Mr.
Jones, sometimes I think, and then
again I don't know; but, after all, I
rather guess he'll turn out to be a good
i1 ill suoh a sort of man as I take him to
.U.1*'
• In a little episode of village life we
had lately another interesting instance
of feminine tact Upon the conclusion
of a marriage in a village church the
bridegroom signed his register with his
X mark. The pretty young bride did
the same; and then turning to a young
lady who had known her as the best
scholar In the school, whispered to her,
while love and admiration shone In her
eyes: "He is a dear fellow, miss, but he
can not write. He Is going to learn from
me, and I would not shame him for the
world."
But it Is not always so apparent that
in the affairs of lite women are more
adroit,or show more discommont or better perception than it, tn. Who has not
noticed how often mothers and nurses,
by continually uttering vague threats,
which their littlo oharges soon learn are
never fulfilled, lose all authority—while
one word from paterfamilias acts like
magic in restoring order and obedience
amongst the young rebels? Itls undeniable that concerning the love affairs
of others women usually show much
more perspicacity than men, and know
how to act accordingly; yet often In
their own cases the tact evinced by
them tn skillfully managing a lover
would seem to be lost when that lover
becomes a husband.
"Tact," we are told, "often thwarts
strength," and certal nly may be made a
wonderful instrument of conciliation
and pacification. To be ablo readily
and without premeditation to do or say
tbe right thing Is an enviable gift, one
that has not unfrequently brought substantial rewards to Its possessor To
ask a favor gracefully, or to compose a
well-worded or delicately expressed missive In matters of diplomacy, would
probably tax the mental resources of
most of us.
To many men the art ot at least putting things In a kind and complimentary wdy Is not uncommon—an art that
was well cultivated by the courtiers of
days gone by. The pain tor who drew
the terrible one-eyed Tamerlane in tho
attitude of a warrior taking aim with
his bow, and consequently having one
oyo closed, is an Illustration in point.
Nor was the Spanish nobleman who
sent Queen Elizabeth a looking-glass
when asked by her Majesty for the portrait of the lady who possessed so accomplished a cavalier's heart a whit be-
Hind Raleigh himself In readiness and
delicacy of tact.
A gentleman was heard to remark at
a fashionable French gathering: "At
that time, Marchioness, I was in love;"
then suddenly interrupting himself:
'Hut no doubt you are astonished that
any one should fall In love before knowing you." This, we admit, was rathor
.nu instance of excessive gallantry than
- .of readiness such as was displayed by an-
othor Frenchman in tbe following: An
.old nobleman was lately accosted by an
orderly lady with white hair at a party
..riven by a Baroness: "Don't you recog-
mite me, Monsieur d'Aurevilly?" The
:man was silent. "It Ib many years,"
she continued, "since we met; I think
,m 1848." "Ah, madamp," exclaimed tho
nobleman, "I have greatly ohanged
since that timo," Could any ono but a
Frenchman have shaped such an answer?
It must have been a countryman of
his who said: "If you wish to pay a
protty compliment to a plain and ignorant woman, and at the same time do not
wish to be guilty of a falsehood, tell her
that Bhe is as beautiful as she is accomplished. She will think you are a
-.harming man, and your conscience will
be gultless of an untruth." Such an
adviser must be one of the very diplomatists of society.
In conversation, true courtesy is often
forgotten in the general anxiety of people to speak rather than to listen; they
may seem to be attentive, but the absent look in the eyes betrays the reverse. Good listeners, especially if
youthful, are thought worlds of by
garrulous old people. We should not
reply to a reoltal of the troubles of
others by a long list ot grievances of
our own; nor when shown any thing
in which the owner, takes pride spoil
tbe effect by ungraciously referring to
somothlng superior In the same line
which one has soen or may possibly possess. A constant endeavor to be easily
pleased is essential to politeness.
Tho habit of thought before speech is
not easy to acquire; and In conclusion
we may add that toot, though partly a
natural gift, Is a good deal Indebted to
education and early habits.
A  FISH   IN  HIS JUG.
Tlw Baaarkable Yarn Told by an Aged
Mat no Munchausen.
There used to be an old resident of
Fayette, Me., who was greatly given to
spinning yarns, says the Local Press of
that village, lie was the hero of his
own narratives, and, to hear him tell it,
hia adventures, exploits and hair
breadth escapes were as wonderful as
those of baron Munchausen or Sinbad
the Sailor. lie has left the shores of
time and gone to the happy hunting
grounds, but some of bis stories still
survive.   Here Is a specimen:
One day he was out on the lake near
his home fishing, and happened to have
a two-gallon stone Jug in the boat, which
Jug accidentally fell Overboard, filled
with water and sank to tbe bottom.
Some years afterward he was again fish
Ing near the same place, when, feeling a
strong bite, he tugged stoutly at the
pole and pulled into the boat on one end
of the line the Identical lost jug with a
big pickerel in li It seems that the
fish, when small, swam Into the Jug, and
not finding the way out, grew to a largo
site in Its prison. When the baited
hook chanced to drop Into the Jug the
fish seised It and was caught.
Tbls was one of the many marvelous
tales that the old man used, to tell, and
It hurt his feelings and roused his Ire If
any of his audience ever ventured to
queitloa his yeraol.y.

A  REMARKABLE RIDE.
Uaole Andrew Hutoblna' Adventure with
■ Ktolne Mooae.
"You want a story, do you, boys?
Well, I'll tell you of a ride I had once
on a moose's back." The speaker was
Andrew Hutohlps, of Gardiner, Me.,
and, taking a comfortable seat by the
fire, he commenced his yarn. "It was
while I was in the northern part of
Maine, on a hunting trip with a party
of men from Boston. They had had
good 'luck with small game, but they
wanted a moose, I told them that I
would show them one before long, and I
did. One or two days after they began
asking me where the moose was, and
kinder got mo riled. I took my gun,
and told them that I'd get a moose pretty quick if they wouldn't oome racing
around like a pack of steers. Off I went,
and had gone about a mile when I heard
a noise as if the devil had got loose. I
got up a tree as soon as possible, and
had just got fairly seated when two of
the finest moose I ever set eyes on came
right under the tree. Here was luck,
and I took aim at the largest and pulled
the trigger."
Andrew at this point looked rather
sheepish, as If he didn't want to pro*
coed, but, after considerable urging, the
Gardiner News says, he again continued.
"The truth of it was, boys, In my
hurry from the camp I forgot to bring
my cartridges, and didn't oven have one
In my gun. Well, I knocked my head
against a limb and tried to think how I
was going to get one of those moose,
who all this time were eyeing each
other like oats and dogs. All of
a Budden they started for each
other and oame ker plunk together, then they backed off again and
tried It over. They kept at this for
quite a time, and seemed to be getting
kind of tirod out, and were walking
round and round till they got their
wind. The largest one was right under
mo, and I oould aimoBttouch bis antlers.
I never knew how It happened, but
down I went, heels over bead, and lit
right on that critter's back. He didn't
soem to like this sort of surprise party,
and just threw back hiB bead and went,
tbe other one following after; lucky for
me the trees In that place wero pretty
high, and there wasn't much danger of
being knocked off by tbe limbs.
"Well, sir, tbe time that It takes to
tell this was enough for that moose to
go half a mile, and tbe smaller one
right behind all the time. I was clinging to the sides of that moose like a
cockroach to a biscuit. It was all I
could do to breathe, and I had lost my bat
long ago. I now noticed that we were
going toward the camp, and we soon
hove in sight of it. I gave a shout, and
as I did so felt something Blip down my
throat. Tbo boys heard the noise, and
looking up saw us coming. Down went
tho board thoy were playing cards on,
anil off they scudded like bo many jack
rabbits We wore now right in tbe
camping place, and I wanted to stop
there, hut 1 didn't, no, sir. I didn't stop
thero, but just about a hundred yards
(rum the camp tbe moose stopped suddenly and 1 went over his hoad Into a
brook I wasn't much hurt, and scrambled out liko a grasshopper out ot a
knot-hole, and right in front of mo lay
those two moose, dead as a herring. I
p.it on as straight a face as I could, and
walked up to tho camp as unconcerned
as possible 'Here's the moose I prom
isetl you, boys, I said, and wo went bock
and cut thou, up. Tbe boys didn't Bay a
word till after supper, and then one of
them bandod mo a looking-glass. As
sure as 1 am what I am, my faue, which
was covered by a heavy beard when I
started, waB as smooth as a boy's, and
two of my front teoth wero gone. My
hat  I found on  tbe smaller  moose's
antler."    	
LAWYER  AND CLIENT.
Bow a Legal Han Hade ft Thief Plead
Guilty Alter Acquittal.
"The only lawyer who made his client
plead guilty after being acquitted was
C. M. Hardy," said a lawyer to a Chicago Tribune reporter, "It happened
this way:
"A man was arrested for burglary.
Tbo principal evidence against him was
an overcoat found in the house, which
tho burglar had evidently left In his
hurry to get away. In one of the
pockets of tbe overcoat were Borne
printed business cards bearing this man's
name, which we will call Tom Jones,
furniture remover. Of course Jones
was arrested; tbe coat was found to fit
him exactly, and It looked a dead sure
thing that ho would be convicted. But
nobody had seen the burglar enter the
house or leave It, and It was not a difficult matter to prove'an alibi for the
prisoner. Of course that meant disowning the overcoat, which Jones promptly
did. Whon the-case came before the
Jury It was a treat to hear Mr. Hardy
argue the absurdity of burglars "going
a-burgllng" with their business cards In
their pockets. He didn't attempt to
show how the cards happened to be In an
overcoat which exactly fitted his client,
but threw the whole thing overboard,
as It were, and made the prosecution appear in such a ridiculous light that the
jury acquitted the prisoner after five
minutes' deliberation,
"But when the lawyer and his client
were leaving the criminal court by the
Michigan street steps it began to rain.
Mr. Hardy buttoned up his overcoat
round his neck, and, notlciag that his
client was minus an overcoat, he said:
'Janet, you had better go back to court
gb*I*£jrour overcoat,' alluding to
WU which he had so strenuously
iwned a few moments before.
1 "The man, not wishing to get wet,
turned baok to get bis coat, and had
reaohod tho top step before It dawned
on him that to apply for tho coat would
bo an equivalent to a confession ot
guilt. At once retracing his steps he
overtook his lawyer at tho corner of
Clark street.
" 'Why, that's pleading guilty!* Jones
exclaimed, whon he had recovered
breath.
"'So la turning back for that coat,'
rejoined his attorney; 'but you needn't
fear—that Jury wouldn't believe you and
tho Judge couldn't.'
"Jones guossod he had pleaded guilty
enough alroady and that his coat wasn't
worth much any way, and that ho would
get along without It."

WOMEN  ON  DIVORCE.
An Old Chicago lawyer Agveea with Hri.
Amelia K. Ban's View*.
I have had a good many divorce oases.
Women as a rule decry divorces and say
they are a curse to the marriage system,
and yet it ts a woman's first thought
when she has a row with her husband.
The women of lntelllgenoe who write
about the subject and who are presumed
to be cool-headed about it warm up In
their discussion of it and oome to the
conclusion that divorce is all right if
the woman gets it Occasionally we find
a woman who rises to an unbiased view
of the question. Such a woman, for instance, is Amelia B. Barr, w&O In an
article just printed In one of the magazines says:
"It Is said, The woman who deliberates 1b lost' The truth is women are
lost because they do not deliberate,
Thackeray had the profoundeat Insight
Into a woman's heart when he made the
miserable wife of Barnes Newoome
leave her husband and home In an hour
when she had no such Intention. Cruelly
tempted, perplexed and bewildered,
when passion Is stronger than reason,
women do not think of consequences,
but go, blindfold, headlong to their
ruin. Are such women likely to be
kopt moral by any legal enactment? As
well try to deter or encourage ti.em by
tbo laws ot gravitation. Prohibition
never yet prevented orlme; of what
value is it, then, as .. punishment?
"And supposing .bat the woman Is
the innocent party, what right has the
law to add injustice to Injury, to condemn her to spend her lifo in solitude,
finding the bread and bearing the burdens some other would gladly 'find and
bear for ber? Could the law set a good
woman In a position more beset With
grievous temptations? Alimony Is never
a sufficient righ t for a wronged woman;
the guilty husband may betake himself
to a foreign country or otherwise evade
it, for a husband who has deserted a
wife in person will easily desert her In
purse. Most women would consider
heartless, deliberate, continued de-
Bortidn a far worse orime than one committed in a moment ot passion. And denying remarriage to a deserter would
not check desertion. It may be fairly
assumed that a man who would desert
his wife would not hesitate to commit
bigamy. Besides, it the prohibition to
remarry be regarded as punitive, the
unfaithful wife Is not the sinner above
all others. Women who are chaste beyond doubt are often bad wives. Keeping the seventh commandment Intact,
thoy yet ruin and disgrace their husbands irretrievably. They may be
drunkards, or brawlers, or thieves.
Thoy may be corrupters of their children.
Thoy make their homes hells. Insanity
Is tho only cause for divorce whioh
should be coupled with prohibition to
remarry. For what right have we to
deny to the unfortunate, or even to the
guilty, that opportunity for consolation
or redemption which the continuance of
their existence makes a divinely-granted right?"—Chicago Tribune.

WANAMAKER'S 8TORY.
A Bomantlo Little Anecdote Told by the
roHtmaiter-Ueneral.
PostmaBter-General Wanamaker, according to tho Philadelphia Telegraph,
told bis Bible class a very pretty and
pathetic little anecdote at Bethany
Sunday-school.
"A young and neatly-dressed littlo
woman," bo said, "came to my office tn
Washington and said that ber husband
bad been drinking to excoss and bad
loft homo forover. She told a very
creditable story and wound up by asking me it 4 wouldn't glvotter a 'place.'
1 asked her If she loved her husband,
and sbe said 'yes,' with a sob, btg tears
beginning to steal down her cheeks.
She Bald she had but one child, a littlo
girl, whom Bhe fairly worshiped.
"Her story touched me deeply, and I
asked bor If she wouldn't like to have
her husband baok again. 'Oh! yes,' she
replied, 'but ho would nevor oome
back,' Sbe didn't know where he was, I
promised to do what I could for her, and
aho went away.
"I made it a point to find tho husband.
When this was done, and we stood face
to face, I asked him if he didn't want to
go back to his home, to stop drinking,
and become a man again. He answered
with sobs that his wile would never
forgive htm, and there was no use to
try. 'Do. you love your wife?' 1 said.
" "'Yes, sir, I do,'he said, 'but I havo
acted so badly that I can not go home,
because I know my wife loves me no
more.'
" 'She does, my friend,' I assured htm.
'I have seen your wife, and she would
be overjoyed to have you como back.
You have trudged through many weary
hours of sorrow, and have brought tt all
upon yourself.*' I told htm to go to hts
wife and be happy again. To make a
long story short, he did go back, and now
two hearts that wero once shattered and
sad beat again as one.
TEACHING OUT WE8T.
Amvlng Experience! or mi Kaatarn Tefteh-
er la » Frontier School.
"I've had some very amusing experiences," remarked a teacher, "during
the four years in which I taught 'out
West,* and also made the dtsoovery that
the maternal heart out there Is quite aa
loyal to her offspring as that of her
Eastern sister.
"One morning the mother of a very
dull scholar appeared at the door of the
school-room. I was surprised at the
visit, as the parents usually manifested
no interest tn my work. She was greatly excited.
" 'What's the reason my Susan Bllsa
hain't been promoted, and what'a the
reason Bellndy Hanks right along-side
of her has? My gtrl Is a heap smarter
nor her, and I've come to tell you to
promote her or there'll be a fuss In the
camp.'
"I replied that I oould only promote
scholars whose proficiency pointed them
out as deserving It—whereupon her anger passed bounds, and she evidently
took 'proficiency' as a new way to pronounce Providence, for she almost
screamed: 'I don't believe Providence
has any thing to do with It, and yew
can't make me believe it nuther, for all
your fine airs and oddlcatlon. Now, If
she hain't promoted by this time tomorrow you'll hear from her pap.* And
so saying she left the school-house.
"At another time a girl of twelve
years brought her little brother, a ohild
of eighteen months, to school. Being
unable to bear hts noise, I told ber to
take htm home.
" 'Mam's washln* to-day,* ahe replied,
'and she sent htm to gtt shed of htm,
and If I take htm home sho'll pack me
baok with htm again.'
"In the morning she oame «f|lo with
the boy. I sent her home aaltoU her
to toll her mothet-,11 she wlibad her
baby placed In my Are she would have
to send a cradle and a nurse. In an

orten not to return with that baby to
that school. That afternoon tteard
some one fumbling at the door, and upon opening it found girl and baby
again.
11 'Mam, she said that pap had paid
his school taxes and she was a-goln' to
draw 'em out and you couldn't bonder
her.' I yielded, and the baby stayod.1

there. He reported the circumstance
to the officers of the Douglas who left
here on Friday for the spot designated
in search of It. The buoy was found and
afterwards towed down to the Sand-

A brute named John Burwick waa arrested at 0 o'clock this morning by Constable Anderson and special Constable
Julian. Burwick was engaged at his
favorite pastime when arrested—beatinj
and kicking hiB wife. The man hat
been drinking and without reasonable
provocation turned on his poor wife
and knocked her down, kicked, her about
the breasts and was in the act of choking her when help arrived. When the
attempt to arrest Burwick was made he
strongly resisted, and kicked Constable
Anderson and his associate several times
before he was finally secured and placed
in the lockup.
Burwick has suffered two terms of im-
E' risonment for exactly the same offences
e committee this morning, namely,
wife beating and resisting tlie police.
These offences were committed at Vancouver and he was sentenced to two
months on each charge, and he has only
been out of gaol a short time. Mrs,
Burwick Is well-known as a hard work'

is expressed for her. The oaae came up

OTTAWA JOTTINGS.
Interesting Returns and Statements.—
Canada's Legislators.—The Senate Discusses Immigration and Imperial Federation.
(From Our Own Correspondent.)
Ottawa, March 17.—The financial returns for the past year have been submitted to the Local legislature of Nova
Scotia. They show an expenditure on
revenue account of $713,041, leaving a
deficit of $46,107. In addition to this
there was expended on capital account
$807,450. Premier Fielding introduced
a bill authorizing the Government to
borrow $300,000 for expenditure on
roads.
In reply to Mr. McMullon, the Hon.
Mr. Carling stated yesterday that it waB
not the intention of the Government to
distribute gratuitously any portion of
the two-rowed barley ordered by the
Government for experimental purposes.
When Mr. Adam Brown rose to reply
to the speeches made in opposition to
his bill to prevent the shooting of pigeons from trapa, a practical joker flitting
behind let a pigeon loose, and for some
minutes it flew around the chamber be<
fore it was captured.
There are 216 members of the House
of Commons, 80 senators, 349 members
of the various Provincial Legislative Assemblies aud 71 legislative councillors.
Thia Ib a total of 715 for tho Dominion
of Canada, exclusive of those who have
seats in the North-West Territorial Assembly.
A statement of the debts and assets of
tho Bank of British North America has
been published in the Canada Gaiette.
The total debt amounts to £4,250,913
12s. lid. sterling, and the assets to £5,-
555.980,13s. lid.
The balance to the credit of depositors
in the Dominion Government Savings
Banks on the 28th February last amounted to $19,085,307. This savings institution has nothing to do with the Post-
office Savings Bank.
Under an Order-in-Council, dated 31st
May, 1888. a grant waa made of 0,400
acres of public lands per mile to the Alberta Railway and Coal Company, in
aid of the construction of a railway from
Lethbridgeto the international boundary, a distance of about fifty miles.
The Canada Gazette of to-day contains a
statement designating the lands so
granted.
An unrevised statement of inland revenue accrued during tho
month of February shows a total of $609,242.64. The excise
revenue amounted to $607,703.85, as
follows: Spirits, $200,711.00: malt, $45',-
457.24; malt liquor, $380; tobacco, $117,-
220.00; cigars, $37,051.38; inspection of
petroleum, $3,478.56; manufactures in
bond, $2,128.72; seizures, $143.70; other

Notice is given that application will
be made to Parliament for an act authorizing the Columbia and Kootenay
Railway und Navigation Company to
lease its railway and other properties to
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company
on such terms as may bo agreed upon,
and, If necessary, incorporating the company under the Dominion law, to construct a railway from the outlet of Kootenay Lake through the Selkirk range of
mountains to a point on the Columbia
River, as near as practicable to the junction of the Kootenay and Columbia
rivers, and to acquire and maintain a
line of steamers carrying freight and
Saasengera from the intersection of the
iootenay river with the southern boun
dary of British Columbia, thence down
the river to Kootenay Lake and through
the said lake and its navigable tributaries.
The Ottawa Free Press of the 15th
inst. editorially says: "As an atonement for his timber limit jobbery Mr.
Rykert is willing to spend the remainder
of his days in the Senate. He thinks
that ia sufficient punishment for any
offence againgt public morality,"
IMMIGRATION,
Iu the Senate Hen. Mr. Lougheed
asked leave to direct the attention of
the House to the great advantages that
would accrue to the entire Dominion
through the adoption by the Dominion
Government of a system of immigration
calculated to speedily settle the vacant
lands of Manitoba and the Northwest
Territories; and to enquire what steps
the Government intended to take towards the adoption of such a system.
He drew attention to the fact that the
territories, unlike the provinces, had no
power to deal with the question of assisted immigration. To make a nation
we must have population, and something Bhould be done to take advantage
of the standing offer of assistance from
the Imperial Government. Something
should be done to direct towards our
country the tide of emigration now flowing bo freely to the less fertile Argentine
Republic. The latter country, whose
population waa but four millions, received 250,000 emigrants from Europe
in 1889, and 450,000 from 1885 to 1888.
Hon. Mr. Scott contended that Canada
gets her fair proportion, about one-fifth,
of the average emigration to thiB continent. In fact there had been better re-
BultB since assistance to emigrants had
been discontinued. A million Canadians had gone into the United States,
and unless they wanted to Bee the country depopulated altogether they should
have to adopt the policy of commercial
union with the United States. The
trade between England and the United
States had flourished under free intercourse.
Hon. Mr. Abbott thought the last
speaker's confusion of commercial union
with reciprocity rather amusing. The
former meant that we should surrender
our entire commercial and financial ays-
tern to the United States. With regard
to England, her markets were open
alike to the United States and the rest
of the world; but in the case of "Commercial Union" Canada would be opening her markets free to the United States
and comparatively closing them to the
rest of the world. In the matter of Immigration, he said that at'present the
subject of further assistance to immigrants beyond the facilities for cheap
transportation and free land was being
considered by the Government, but as
yet no plau had been formulated.
IMPERIAL FEDERATION.
Imperial Federation waB discussed
from several standpoints in the Senate.
The matter was brought up by the Hon.
Mr. Boulton in moving that "in the
opinion of this House the time has arrived when Os&ada might have a measure
of representation in the Imperial Parliament, by.ffiv'ag to the Government of
tha> Dominion of Canada, and to the
Government of each Province in the
Dominion, the appointment of a representative holding a seat in the Imperial
House of Commons, the representative
of the Government of the Dominion also
holding a Beat in the Imperial Privy
Council, the privelcges of such representatives being limited to the discharge
of and voting upon such questions as
may effect Canadian interests. That
this resolution bo transmitted to His
Excellency the Governor-General-in-
Council, for such constitutional action
as he may deem it advisable to take in
the interests of the county."
Senator Abbott was pleased to hear
Hon. Mr. Scott's vehement declaration
"that commercial union would not lead
to political union, and that if he thought
it would he would be tho first to denounce it." The honorable speaker
could assure him, however, that with
the exception of the Canadian who was
at the head of the movement and who
was trying to be Canadian and American at the same, every advocate of commercial union in the United States held
plainly that it would lead to political
union. As to the friction spoken of;
well, take the fishery case, if we gave up
our fish aud everything else we would
havo peace, of course; but peace at a
{nice 11 nit he for one and i he country at
arge, he knew, would never consent to
pay. Aa to Imperial Federation, he
was not prepared to say that he was in
favor of it until he had heard of some
practical scheme which would bring
about union of Britian and her colonies
without implying too great a concession
on Canada's part. As for the honorable
gentleman's motion, he hoped that,
having succeeded in bringing about this
interesting discussion, which he hod no
doubt was the object of its introduction
he hoped it would be dropped. And it
was. ■——-_____■___-_________
