PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
Hon. Mr. Robson said the provincial surveys were fully recognized by the Dominion government
in regard to lands within the railway belt. Settlers had therefore
no cause to be apprehensive on this
score. A great deal liad been snid
about the "great Kootenay giveaway." Where was tho consistency
of an. opposition who, in the same
breath complained of the monopoly
of 730,000 acres, and also objected
to the compnny being allowed less?
It was u strange anomaly in the so-
called policy of the so-culled opposition. The impression that the
Kootenay company were taking the
best of the lund was erroneous,
Thoy wore compelled to take alternate allotments of land, and were
thus prevented from discriminating to the detriment of the
province in the agreement made.
It was not usual to leave important
legislation to the last session of u
term, and all such had heen dealt
with in the three preceding sessions.
Any measures that arose later it
was usual to defer until after the
general election, unless it was of
such an urgent character as not to
permit of delay. With regard to
water rights he was justified in saying the subject was of such importance Hint it was not advisable to
legislate upon tho subject at the
present time, but rather to give the
house the benefit of an enquiry by
a commission formed for the purposo. Ho found, in some instances,
change of opinion ' with certain
members as to the province's mode
of treatment of the Chinese question. For his part he would say
his views had undergone no change
—he still looked upon the Chinese
as nn evil; and though that evil,
having existed for some years, would
hurt some one to get rid of, yet it
was an evil, and the, sooner the
remedy was applied for its removal
the better. While recognizing the
duty of universal brotherhood and
a certain degree of natural rights,
it was a duty they owed to their
own race to rid thc country of a
people whoso presence was an undoubted curse. The result of the
cessation of railway work had beon
the very one foreseen by opponents
to Chinese, and the manner of dealing with these hordes was one to
require great caro uud deliberation
iu taking legislative action. The
speaker concluded by congratulating the lender of the opposition on
liis restoration to health.
Mr. Semlin said if the coal mines
were closed to Chinese there would
he work enough in them for all the
starving white men in the province.
Il wus highly necessary to prevent
the great rush of Chinese that was
certain to take place in the Similkn-
meen country next spring, and the
government would nlso do well to
study the wishes of its own miners
in this respect. In rogard to the
Kootenay bill he had supported it
because he thought the government
would reap a revenue from the taxes
upon the laud. Tiie attorney-general had stated ttt Cliuton that the
time limit for the Kootonay company to select their land hnd expired and that only -10,000 acres
had been selected by them. As to
the water rights of farmers if there
were no vested rights to bo dealt
with he could not see tho uso of
legislation. Mr. Alien was surprised there had beeu no roforence
in the speech to thc Kootenay hill.
As to the 3,500,000 acros of land
Riven on thu other side of tho mountains he had voted for the measure
to get rid of dook construction at
any cost. As to the Chinese, their
exodus from the province would
work harm to some; a merchant in
his district, for instance, having
taken no less than $58,000 in gold
"dust from Chinese, and who—if
they were to leave the country
would be shut out from business
altogether.
Mr. Helgesen referred to the
wholesale sale of the forests to
speculators by the governmont, without anything like adequate returns.
He also blamed the governmont for
granting land to a corporation like
the Island Railway Oo. without the
stipulation that white men only
should he employed upon tho work.
Mr. Dunsmuir—Then the road
would nob havo been built,
Mr. Helgeson — Well it would
have beeu bettor for the country
that it should not havo been built
at all rather thnn under thoso circumstances. Ho could not look upon the handing ovor of tho drydock
as relieving the provinco of a liability. He had hoped to have seen
a (irst class dock, whether it he-
longed to the Dominion or to the
province; but even that hopo had
now died away. It would nover lo
lengthened now. If by sending
Ohinese out they could bn depended
upon staying out ho would be willing to voto for their assisted emigration. But the number would
not lessen; others would come in
over the border, and mnttors be ns
had nn ever.

VOLUME 29
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. 0., SATURDAY, FEBRUARY C, 1886.
NUMBER 11
Hon, Mr, Davie in explanation
said he would not contradict the
statement attributed to him by the
member for Yale, Mr. Semlin, being
far less confident at this length of
time than tho honorable member of
what actually was said at the Olinton meeting. Certainly he should
havo confined his remarks to Kootenay lake, as the time limit for selecting lands on the Coiumbin would
not expire according to the bill until 1887. If another impression
had been created it was through
error. -*
Hon, S. Duck did »ot favor assisted Chinese emigration, but rather
believed in employing them M little
as possible and enforcing the restriction act, whieh should be made
more vigorous than ever.. The revenue for the fiscal year had exceeded
the estimate by $82,000; and al
though the expenditure during that
time had been $626,000, while the
revenue had been $602,702.49, yet
the deficit was apparent, not actual,
there being a balance to the credit
of the province in June last of $101 ,*
509.92. Later on it would become
his duty, ns minister of finance, to
deal with the subjeot more fully.
Mr. Grant touched briefly upon
almost every subject mentioned in
the address. Referring to the Kootenay bill he suid he had supported it,
and if the matter was again before
then he would still support Has he
thought it had been the means of
promoting the progress of .that district
Mr. Beaven having moved an
amendment to one clause of the address, the Speaker ruled that it was
not admissable. After some discussion Mr. Beaven appealed from
the Speaker's ruling, but the Speaker was sustained ou a vote of 18 to'
6. Those voting against the Speaker were Messrs. Galbraith, Beavon, I
McLeese, Semlin, Grant, and Helgesen. |
Mr. Dunsmuir, speaking of the.
island railway, said it had encourag*
ed settlement; although the govern-,
ment was encouraging that settle-
ment at the expenso of the company
by employing guides to pick out the
bost portions of the land. It was
true that Chinese had lieen employed
on the work, bt'.t not to the same
extent us on the C. P. R. In one
month the greatest number of Chinese employed on tho island railway
was 530, and ns there were now
nearly 70 miles graded, there must
have been a great many besides Chinese employed on it, On the, Ondordonk section there had been
6,000 Chinamen at work at ono
time. He drew a comparison between the railway bill under whioh
he held his charter and the Clements
bill, and declared that his company
would rather have accepted the Clements bill without any bonus than
the last bill with $750,000. The
road would be finished by the lst of
July next, two years sooner thnn
the Clements bill required. He
wus uo advocate of Chinese labor,
and wns getting rid of them as fust
as ho could.   He had only 131 now.
Considerable discussion took place
on the Ohinese question and the
proposed commission on water privileges, lu the course of thn debute
Mr. Ounnighnm expressed a belief
that the increased cost of the administration of justice, and the distress among working men, wero
largely due to the indiscriminate
sale of liquors. Drink, was the
cause of most of. the crimes j for
which our gaols were filled. He
thought dealers in the liquor traffic
should be made largely responsible
for the results. He was in favor of
adding to the clause a reference to
the looseness of our license laws.
He thought the cost bf liquor license
should be increased.
The resolution in reply to the address was finally passed, after which
further discussion took place on the
Ohinese question, the importance of
encouraging deep sea fisheries, and
various other matters of minor importance. Mr, McTavish proposed
a resolution to establish a botanical
garden in Victoria. The proposal
met with considerable oppojtion.
The house adjourned until Thursday last,

Chinese Emigration.
Among thc telegrams which np*
pearcd in the last issuo of this journal wus one in which it wus stated
that the Six Conipnnius, of Sun
Krancisco, would assist all Chinese
who wished to avail themselves of
tho present low rates and return to
thoir native land. Tliis announcement shows thut there is a. disposition on the part of the wealthy Chinese on this eoast to mitigate to
some extent the sufferings of tlieir
countrymen, and that emigration is
regarded tis the most feasible solution of the difficulty. In view of
the present cheap fares to China,
nnd the offer of the Six Companies,
it might he worth while seriously to
consider the advisability of doing
something now to rid this province
of a few thousand of these people.
According to the provincial treasurer's statement made in the house a
few days ago, there is it surplus of
about §100,000 now in the treasury.
We beg to suggest that this surplus
be devoted to securing the exportation of Ohinese. There is no other
way, we believe, in wliich it could
be more profitably laid out. Until
a large number of these people aro
sent out of the country, a great
many of the legitimate places where
desirable immigrants might expect
employment will be shut ngainst
white men, who will be forced to go
elsewhere. The industries of the
province will bo overrun with tliese
people, and very soon notices may
be expected, such as were not long
ago posted in San Francisco, intimating that "the white man must
go!" Let the government ascertain
how many celestials can be shipped
off for §100,000, and if the number
is satisfactory it will be n great
pleasure for us to vote the money.
Norlli-West Revelations.
When it came to be known that
the cost of thb North-west rebellion
would go np into tliu millions, and
that many people felt disposed to
blame the government for its remissness in not enquiring into the
alleged half-breed   grievances, the
tory organs began to say that the
whole responsibility of the rebellion
rested upon a certain number of
"grits" who were operating in that
region.   Tne disclosures made lately
by Mr. Ham, who was sent up as
commissioner for the Mail, puts a
different phase upon the question.
Mr. Ham is a thorough-going Tory,
nnd   represents   a   thorough-going
Tory journal, and neither lie nor it
will be accused of hostility towards
the present government   It may,
therefore, be accepted as beyond dispute that very grave irregularities
exist in the North-west, and it is
extremely probable that they existed before the late rebellion and were
partly the causo of it.   For many
•years the administration of Indian
affairs in the United States has been
a disgrace to any civilized country,
and we have been felicitating ourselves that there was a very marked
contrast between that administration and ours.   But Mr. Ham's dispatches have a tendency to dispel
these ideas, and we are left to fear
that our own   territories are the
theatre of worse outrages than ever
took place in the United States. We
are inclined to think that much of
the responsibility of this disgraceful
state of things rests with Mr. Dewdney, whose administration has often
lieen denounced   by both parties,
. hut who seems tn have been kept in
office in spite of public opinion.   It
is scarcely possible to imagine that
lie was ignorant of these abuses.   If
he wns ignorant, lio must   not have
made use of   the ordinary means
within reach to inform himself, But
the Ottawa authorities cannot es
cape either.   Thoy ure responsible
for keeping tho governs" in ollice,
and they are responsible also for
sending into thc North-west as officers somo of their political pets who
were totally unfitted for their posts.
No doubt tHre are efficient officers
in the North-west, but there are
also drones and brokendown politicians whose presence there is not
for the purposo of   doing honest
work but drawing fat salaries.   It
is to be hoped a most careful investigation will   be mado into these
matters.   This cannot be treated as
apolitical question.   It is of too
grave a nature, and' affects too seriously the welfare of the country.
No matter what party Huffers, the
North-we3t scandal must bo wiped
out        ^     ___________

Seiisiuionnl Journalism.
On Wednesday we referred briefly
to the very improper and impertinent remarks made by the Victoria
Times respecting the lieutenant-
governor at the opening of the
house. There is another matter in
which, it seems to us, the samo journal has displayed a lack of both
judgment and taste. For some
time it lias been engaged in discussing the merits of tho two gentlemen
one of whom, it is expected, will
succeed to the lieutenant-governorship. These gentlemen are Senator
Nelson and Senator Macdonald;
and the Times has been doing its
best to mako Senator Nelson the i
favorite candidate Day after day
it lias been making invidious comparisons between the two men, and
urging the claims of its candidate
with all the vehemence of a paid
advocate. Now, the lieutenant-
governorship is a matter that rests
absolutely with the premier of the
Dominion and his cabinet, nnd it is
one of those things that ought not
to form the subject of a public discussion except under rare circumstances. If there is danger of the
office falling into the hands of a
person utterly unfit for it, the duty
of tlie press and the people is to
enter a firm protest. If the person
nominated, or about to be nominated, is notoriously a bad character,
it may be proper even to refuse him
that enthusiastic reception which
the representative of her majesty
ought under ordinary circumstances
to expect. But there are no such
circumstances existing iu the case
now under discussion. In point of
merit there may be a wido difference
between the two senators, but the
Times has certainly failed completely
to make it manifest. Its opposition
to the one and its advocacy of the
other savors very strongly of partisanship, or a consideration merely
for the personal likes and dislikes
of the individual who wrote or inspired the articles. No chargo has
been brought ugninst Senator Macdonald, and no reason has been advanced why his claim to the ollice
should not be just as good us that of
the other. Indeed, our cotemporary
does not deal in argument at all,
but rests his case upon such undig
nified and impertinent sentences as
this: "Allowing that Senator Macdonald has saved §800 annually from
his senatorial allowance ($11,200 in
1*1 years) what could he accumulate
from the gubernatorial salary and
allowance in five years V If Senator Macdonald has been able to save
anything out of liis allowance, that
is his own business, and not a matter which concerns tho Times at all.
We are quito sure that Senator
Nelson is not in any sense a party
to the foolish discussion of the respective merits of himself and Senator Macdonald, and we are quite
sure also that the meddlesome advocacy of tho Times, if it has any
effect at all on the appointment,
will have the very opposite to thut
intended by the organ. If tho office
fails to Senator Nelson, or Senator
Mclnnes, or Senator Macdonald, we
shall have no word of protest to
offer, believing that any one of these
gentlemen will be able to discharge
its duties, but we protest against
the sort of discussion indulged in by
tho Times on this question. There
is another characteristic of our co-
temporary which he must excuse us
for mentioning, and that is the tendency lately exhibited to run into
political sensationalism, It sometimes happens that a sensational
journal gains temporary success,
bnt it can never command either
confidence nor esteem. Not long
ago the Times published a flaring
announcement about a division in
the provincial government ranks,
the formation of a third party, and
a new gerrymandering schemo that
was to Imj sprung upon tho country.
There is every reason to bolieve that
no ground whatever existed for any
of these announcements, and that
tho object of publishing thom was
either a pure lovo of sensation or a
hope that they might bring embarrassment to tho government, Both
these motives woro indefensible and
unworthy of a public journalist.
"We have always believed that the
same kind of ethics which regulates
a man's dealings with his fellow-
man ought to regulate the conduct
of a politician or a journalist, and
wo have never lieen able to find a
sound reason for changing this opinion. It is to lie feared the Times
does not always confine itself to
utterances that have had tho approval of its bettor judgment.

Miss White's Lecture, — There
wore betwoen 300 and 400 people at
tlm Drill Shed last Wednesday night
to hear the temperance lecture delivered by Miss N. E. White. The chair
was occupied by Mrs. Jas. Cunningham, president of tbe local W.C. T.U.
For an hour and a quarter Miss White
held tho undivided attention of the
large audience, and at the close she
received a unanimous vote of thanks
which was moved by Rev. Robt. Lennie and seconded by Rev. O, Watson,
The lecture was a forcible and excellent defence of the principles uf the
W. C. T. V., and was well worthy of
the appreciation it received.

for tho Canadian Pacific Railway.
These steamships are magnificent in
thoir appointments, of English build,
of great Bpeed—between 10 and 17
miles an lioiir—and have been plying
between San Franoisco and Australia
for a number of years. At full steaming they could make the run from the
Bay City to this port in two days, and
from Australia in twenty-five days.
It is to be hoped the report ia true.—

I.O.O.F.—At a regular communication of Now Westminster Lodge No. 3,
I.O.O.F., the following officers were
duly inatalled for the current term;
P. J. Foulds, N.G.; S. T. Macintosh,
V.G.; N. A. White, R.S.; W. A.
Reeves, P.S.; C. R. JMonck, Treas.;
W. D. Kiunaird. W.; Chaa. Murray,

R.S.N.G.; Geo. Turner, L.S.N.G.; E.
S. Scoullar, R.S.V.G.J W. H. Edwards, L.8.T.Q. This lodgo was instituted on 21st March, 1871, and up
to the present time tho following Bums
have beon paid out for relief: Sick
benefits, §4,073; funeral benefits, §805;
nursing the sick, §010; donations, §93;
total, §5,077- Eleven brothers and
two wives of Oddfellows have died and
been buriod by thia lodge. The present membership iB 73 in good standing.
The assets of the lodge aro §5,070, including the Oddfellows' cemetery and
tho proporty recently purchased on
comer of Mary und Agnes sts., where
it ia intended to erect a new hull.
Thero Is no secret or (latent In the production of "Myrtle Navy" tobacco. It
could bo produced by any manufacturer,
but no manufacturer could mnke it pay
at the prico, unless lie could purchase on
a largo sealo ami soil on a large scale.
He could not sell below the present price
without a low- even if he could purchase
on the latest advantageous terms. To
get a Intve market, therefore, without
whioh ho would havo no inducements to
fo on, would be the work of many years,
hat is the reason why Messrs. Tuckett
k Son have tho command of the market,
nnd they nro wise enough to know that
they cau retain it only by keeping the
price down to hnnd pan figures.
The Branch Line.—Sinco the receipt of Mr. Abbott'a letter iu which
wns stated that arrangements for
the construction' of the branch line
to this city would be made its soon aa
the government and city had furnished satisfactory security tor the
bonus, some uneasiness has prevailed
about the streets. Mr. Abbott intimated that it would be necessary fo
paiB a bill through the house beforo
tlio government could pay over ita
share of the bonus, und some people
doubted if the bill would carry. Mr.
Cunningham wob commissioned bythe
council to enquire into the matter and
ascertain how it stood. Yesterday
afternoon Mayor Dickinson received
the following telegram from Victoria;
"Have seon Abbott and government.
All arranged. Work on branch to
proceed nt once Jas. Cunningham."
This is quite satisfactory, and will
probably stop the manufacture of any
more foolish rumors such aa have been
in circulation during tho past few days.

Celestial Hiatus. — On Tuesday
night tho celebration of the Chinese
Now Vear began. Tho withdrawal of
the civic permission to fire oft' crackers, howover, operated like a wet
blanket off the festival. Occasionally
a few crackers went olf, but tho Chinese were as solemn as a second-hand
funeral. Evidently they were grently
disappointed at uut being permitted tu
shoot off the fireworks that had been
prepared. 'Matters remained iu this
unsatisfactory state until Thursday
night, when the Celestial patriotism
could no longer be restrained. About
7 o'clock, amidst tho beating of gongs
and the racket of other mysterious instruments, tho celebration assumed its
customary character. Fire - crackers
wero exploded by the million, rockets
went up majestically, bombs shook the
foundations of the oity, and for nearly
two hours the din and boom wero kept
up incessantly. John's national sentiments were satisfied, and about §300
worth of patriotism went into smoke.
The Celestials were very hospitable to
visitors and treated them to cigars,
Chineso brandy, Chinese nuts and confectionery, preserved ginger, and other
delicacies. There were no accidents
to mar the complete success of the
affair.

JKO. ISAACS SHOT BY HIS BROTHER.
In our lust issue it wub stated that a
son of Mr. Isaacs at Maple Ridgo Imd
beon shot by Borne person unknown.
Officer Moresby went up last Monday
to enquire into the circumstances, and
probably succeeded in ascertaining by
whom the shot was fired, and the circumstances under which the occurrence took place. On arriving Mr.
Moresby at once took the statements
of the two boys who wero present when
the shooting was done. John Honry
Isaacs, the one who received the gun
shot, ia 17 years of age, und hiB brother,
William James, iB 20. The boys stated
that they were at the house on Lillooet rirer on the day of the shooting,
and as it was raining they remained
most of the time inside; ufter a while
John went out and proceeded towards-
the river; ho had gono a short distance
when ho received a bullet in his right
side; he put his hand tu his sido and
called out, "I'm shot," and turned towards the house; his brother rnn out
and met him, und helped him to reach
the residence uf Mr. Dawson, who
immediately got his team und drove
them home; the shot, they said, camo
from tho direction of the river, and
thoy did not know who fired it. The
father gave the same version of the
affair, but, of courso, ho was not a
witness to it and merely repeated what
hiB boys had told him, Tho Iioubo
where tho shooting took place in about
2 miles back of Maple Ridge, on the
banks nf the Lillooet river. This
place, we believe, is claimed by both
Mr. Isaacs antl Mr. McPherson, who
lives at the Ridgo, and the boys, whon
pressed by Mr. Moresby, said they
suspected McPherson of the shooting,
as Mr. Dawson had told them that he
(McPherson) had made threats against
the Isaacs and an Indian reported Boeing a white man near the cabin on the
day of the shooting. Mr. Moresby
then went to Mr. Howison's and Bent
for William Isaacs to como there;
William came and made the same statement under oath. -Mr. Moresby thon
took him und Constable Wilson out to
see the cabin; on going into the cabin
he noticed some bullet holes which
had been made from the inside, and
asked how they came there; William
Baid he didn't know; Mr. Moresby
told him he must know; the boy then
said they had a small cannon in the
houae which they woro firing, and perhaps these were the shots from it; in
reply to Mr. Moresby he said he had
thrown the cannon into the river;
they looked for it, however, but
couldn't find it; Mr. Moresby said
these were bullet holes from u pistol,
and that the boy had boen deceiving
him; he said he had not; Mr. Moresby then said he was lying, and tlatly
accused William of shooting his broth
er; the boy then admitted thnt ho
might hnve done so, and afterwards confessed to the wholo business.
He aaid that some time ago, without
his father's knowledge, his brother
had bought three revolvers and a lot
of ammunition at Webb's, New West-
iniustor; they had two revolvers ut
the cabin that day and were practising with them; while both were
sitting beforo the fire he usked his
brother to let him look at his revolver; while looking at it it went off
nnd shot his brother; nfter examining
tho wound he told his brother,, he
didn't think he would die, but lio had
better ask God to forgive liis sins;
they then agreed to toll tho atory
nbout tho shot having been fired
from the river by some unknown per-
porsun; after hiding the revolvers and
ammunition, they went tn Mr. Dawson's, as stated already. Mr. Moresby took William to Mr. Howison's,
end obtained from him a sworn statement as ubove; he then sont him jvith
Constable Wilson nnd thoy found tho
revolvers and ammunition and a flask
of rum partly empty. While the constable and William were away at tho
cabin, Mr. Moresby took Mr. Howison, J. P., to Mr. Isaacs'and asked
John to make a sworn statement;
John adhered to his first story, notwithstanding that Mr Moresby cautioned him and told him he did not
think he wuuld survivo the wound.
Mr. Moresby told he waB making a
false statement, but he declared he
waa telling the very truth. Mr,
Moresby then got a warrant from Mr.
Harris, J, P., and arrested William
mid brought him to hiB home where
John waB; he told John that Wm.
had confessed, and told how the
shooting took place; John then admitted the facts as stated by William,
nnd mado a aecond statement under
oath to that effect! William obtained
"bonds to appear at next assize court,
and was released from custody. John
ia progressing as woll as could be expected. The bullet penetrated a portion of the left lung and the liver, and
has not been extracted. It is by no
means certain whether he wilt recover
or not.

Ouit Wheat Abroad.—The Ifcndon
correspondent of the Montreal Gazette.
in writing to that journal, amongst
other Canadian topici, aays: I aaw tha
othor day an excellent simple af white
apring wheat sent over here from the
mainland (if British Columbia. It was
grown in the Spallumcheen district, on
the western side of the gold range,
south of the railway district, on the
farm <f a Mr. Lumby. It is asserted
that there aro in this one portion of
the Pacifio' province nl many as 240,-
000 acres nt land,capable of producing
such excellent grain to the yield of betwoen forty and fifty bushels to the
acre. The wheat is a muoh softer
variety than the hard red wheat grown
ao largely in the Canadian Northwest,
nnd would not, I imagine, meet with
anything liko so eager a demand in
British markets, even if British Columbia should over have more wheat
than her futuro population will consume. It 'a expected that a branch
railway of about 60 miles will shortly
connect the Okanagon and Spallumcheen district! with the main line of
the Canadian Pacifio railway and so
opon up navigation for 150 miles south
into the heart of the region. Such a
branch Hue, together with the projected canal in tho Kootenay valley,
would do much to stimulate the development nnd settlement of these interior lands.

On tho return of Sir Goorgo Stephen
Bait, to Montreal, lie was interviewed
by a Gazette reporter to whom he stated
that Canada Pacific stuck hud gone up
from M5 to] 70, consequent upon tho
earnings exceeding the estimate by
£105,000. With regard to the proposal to place a line uf steamships between Victoria and the Orient Sir
George snid—
"The contract for the mails iB only
part of our claims. We wnnt aciiBh
subsidy, and wo believo wo are worth
it to tho Imperial govornment. The
Canadian government have aided this
great national enterpriso themselves
without asking a cent from the Imperial government. The railway
is now completed. It will nu
doubt prove of great use to the English government, and it would bo very
strango if they do nnt recognise its advantages iu a practical way. The
steamship line on tho Pacific ia just as
much a purt of the system as is tho
line itself north of Lako Superior. Wo
say to the Imperial government the
value of the lino is not merely
as a mail route, but it is of
value from a national and Imperial
point of view. It is valuable to you
from a strategic point of view, because
in nn oaatem war you can strike Russia on the Pacific coast before sho c-uld
defend herself, excopt at a grent disadvantage. It strengthens the arm of
England tremendously on the Pacific
ocean. Then again, iu the event of a
European war, it is the alternative
routo in case the Suez canal Bhould be
closed, and makes England the mistress of thu situation."
"You expect to get the mail contract
for China and the oast ?"
"Certainly; ours is tho shortest und
best route. We intend to put first*
class steamers on the route, and nothing elso wilt du to compete with San
Francisco, If wo do not put tho best
vessels oil wo would be beaten beforo
wo began."
"Do you expect nn increased trade
between Canada uml Australia, New
Zealand, nml tlio cast ?"
"I hnvo no doubt thnt a lnrge Canadian trade can bo done with New Zen-
laud, Australia aud other places. Wo
do not ask the Imperial government to
subsidize a stoHinsliip Huo tu Australia.
Wo want to gel io Hongkong liy way
of Japan. If wo find four or tivo
steamers on that route tbey would be
of great use to llm Imperiul government in case of wm- with Russia.
Theso vessels could bn usod as transport vessols."
"C-ui you BiiccoBsfully compote with
American transcontinental routea for
thu through iraltiu?"
"No American route to the Pacific
can carry us cheaply ns we can. Traders
have only ouu company to deal with in
the C. P. lt., whereas tho American
through routes uru under a number of
distinct companies, and that makes a
great difference."
"Is it true, Sir George," asked our
representative in conclusion, "as aome
poople seem to think, the O.P.R. will
apply to the Canadian govornment for
an additional subsidy at the next session of parliament?"
The GIffen Land Scheme.
It may be taken for grunted that
Mr. Robert Giflen's scheme foraettling
the Irish laud question is based on
correct figures, and well reasoned in
the matter uf arithmetic. He is statistician to the hoard of trade, and
cannot afford to mako mistakes in calculation. One may therefore accept
pro tern, the somewhat surprising
statement that the proposed arrangement wuuld put money into every
pocket concerned.
The imperial government, according to thia scheme, would expropriate
the Irish landlords, giving them a
price equal to twenty years of judicial
rent. They might well rejoice at tho
price, as judicial rents will inevitably
bo lowered from time to time, and
because, pending tho final settlement
of (he hind question, twenty years'
rental is much more than the market
value uf Irish laud.
By the expropriation it is calculated
that £1(10,000,000 would lie added to
the debt of Great Britain, a sum which
seems small for such a purpose when
nno remembers thnt wars havo eust
imperial exchequer about £4,200,000,
000 since tho beginning of tho century. Adding -£100,000,000 to tho
dobt would increase tho interest charge
by £5,800,000, but moro than this
sum would, it is contended, be saved
in expenditure by the proposed disposal of the land.
Thu scheme is to distribute it among
peasant proprietors, to whom the proposed Irish home rule government
should stand as landlord. In consideration of the right to exact three-
quarters of tho judicial rent, or £0,*
000,000 from tho tenants, the home
rule government would relieve tho Im
perial Exchequer of a local expenditure
wliich amounts to over £4,000,000 per
year, exclusive of the coat of the army
of occupation. It is presumed that
tho Irish would be so contented with
the change aa to render a large garrison
unnecessary in Ireland. In that case
the Imperial government would make
an actual profit in money by tho trnns-
nction; the collection of rents would
bo thrown on tho popular government
of Ireland, these rents being not more
thnn three-quarters of tho judicial
rents, wuuld, it ia to be hoped, bo paid
readily by the people; and if so, a
revenue for the Irish local government
would be provided from the atart, It
is diflicult to see any objection whatever to tho scheme, except the difficulty of tho government collecting the
rents. That it involves the creation of
a homo rule parliament, with guarantee
for the maintenance of Imperial unity,
is n large recommendation.
Mr. Giffen'B plan has peculiar interest na proposing nu application of the
theories of Mr. Henry George. The
nationalization of thu whole of Ireland
would occur. Probably the fiercest
opposition will come from those who
fear the entire success of the plan,
which would certainly lead to its application in England and Scotland.—

MEWS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WMlfc
Panama, Feb. 1.—A most diabolical
plot to overthrow the government has
been discovered In Guatemala. It was
a scheme to set fire to the Grand hotel
and theatre at a given time, when tliere
might be expocted to be a full house,
lu tho piuiic which would certainly enaue
the intention of tho conspirators was to
tako possession of the barracks without
any great risks to themselves, and then
to murder President Barrillus and hia
family; next to attack all foreigners and
finally sack the oity, Fortunately the
plans of tlio conspirators wen revealed
in time to prevent their consummation.
The discovery of the plan led to the
arrest of about fifty persons, including
some colonels in the army, and they are
now undergoing trial.
A government commission consisting
of Professor Kockatrock aad Mr. Walker
lias been sent from Guatemala to report
on the probability of an outbreak of
Pacayn Volcano. The report of these
gentlemen announces the total destruction of the village of Snn Vincent* Pacayn. Some 44 tile roofed houaes were
completely collapsed, making such a
cloud of dust as to create ths belief that
a new crater had opened. Hot springs
surround ing Lake Amatillan emit a larger
volume of wnter at a higher temperature
than usual. The crater of Pocaya re-
mains unchanged while that of Fuego
has been vory lively.
. London, Feb. 2.—Miss Mary Gladstone, daughter of Hon. Mr, Gladatone,
was married this morning to the Rev.
Hany Drew, of Hawarden. The ceremony was performed in St. Margaret's
church, Westminster. Mr. Gladstone
gave the bride away. Among the persons of note present were the Prince and
Princess of Wales and tlieir sona and
Lord and Lady Rosebery. The bride's
dress was of white muslin, with Hrus-
scls lace. She wore a wreath of orange
blossoms aud lilies, A crowd gathered
outside the church ami cheered the wedding party on their arrival and departure. The weather was vory pleasant
and the sun shone brightly.
Diftfctif, Fob. S.—At a meeting of the
national league today Mr. Sexton, who
presided, predicted that at thc next election the Nationalists would combine
witli tho Liberals and return ninety-eight
■numbers to parliament, Ireland, lie
said, was satisfied with tho result of
temporary power of the Conservatives
who had abolished coercion and introduced n lnnd purchasing measure, establishing tho principle that tho stato should
provide money for tho extinction of landlords, He advised Mr. Gladstone to
avoid violence and disorder iu Ireland,
He urged Irishmen to remain peaceful
while thero was n chance of Mr. Gladstone making efforts in behalf of Irish
nuifliiolism.
London', Feb. 3.—Lord Dufferin, viceroy of India, has gone to Burmah to
arrange for the extension of the British*
Indinn Hindoostan to that kingdom,
London, Fob. 4.-Mr. Gladatone has
issued his addresB to the electors of Midlothian. In it ho aaya there are questions concerning Ireland whioh demand
tho attention of parliament: the question of social order, thc question of laud
reform, and the question of self-government. The de»ire for self-government,
he says', must necessarily be subject to
the law of imperial unity,    Tho govern'
land law. Thc News adds that if Mr.
Parnell really has the welfare of his
country at heart he will have an opportunity to evince hia patriotism, but if ho
obstructs the completion of Mr. Gladstone's Bchoine, parliament will turn a
ready car to the proposal of coercive
measures.
New Yokk, Feb. 4.—A Toronto special suys the following cablegram haa
been received from London: "At a farewell meeting with the agent-general of
tho colonies, Right Hon. Col. Stanley,
secretary of stato for the colonies, Right
Hon. Col. Stanley, secretary of state for
the colonies, stated that his colleagues,
before going out of offlco had placed on
record tlieir decision to use the Canadian
Pacific railway us a means of communication betweon Kngland and the East."
Ex-governor Perkins, of California, principal owner of the Pacilic coast steam
ship company, was informed of the above
facts, and also of the intention of the
government to subsidize n direct line of
steamers in cognection with tho railway
between Victoria and China. He thinks
a new line of steamers will divert n large
portion of tea shipment which now go
oast by way of Sou Francisco und Chicago to the Canadian Pacilic Sir George
Stephen, president of the Canadian Paoifio, also informed Governor Perkins
that ratea ou tea would be put so low
that shippers would prefer thc Canadian
Pacitio to any other American transcontinental line.

represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit at the Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, and cited aa an illustration of the wonderful progress this
country is making, thc sucSeWoftho
Dominion Or-jun and Piano Company
there. He said that this Company (the
Dominion Organ and Piano Company)
had not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest the judges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, from England, France, and Germany, the very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skill and acquirements in musical knowledge, but these judges, who
comprised aome of their ableat and best
musicians, had declared further that the
instruments of this company were superior to any they had ever seen, heard, or
examined. With such a compliment
from such n source, in addition to their
success at this Exhibition, the Company
ought to feel content.

t tli'iH nut* Profane Words.
i politdicd steel receives a stain
From drops at random flung,
• does the child, when words profane
Drop from a parent's tongue,
ie rust eats iu, and oft we tind
That naught whicli we cau do
) cleanse tho metal or the mind,
Its brightness will renew,
Ish Courtship aud Weddings.
The arrows of Cupid fly quick nnd
t in Ireland, and the heart of Pat
ms to be especially vulnerable. Ac-
ding to n popular ballad, nn Irish*
"Loves all that is lovely-
Loves nll that he cam"
j it is, therefore, not wonderful that
) love god persuades so many of the
jus of the sod," somewhat too early
life, to tind their wny to the altar
Hymen. Muny young men in the
id of the shillelagh nnd tho shtim-
;k, marry before thoy aro out of
'teens," and when they ure not
all in a position to commence house-
fpiug.
'So you want to bo married?'' suid
ttev. Mr. M to Peter Kinacllii.
■ 'Deed and Hint's just it, your riv-
mce."
'What age nro you, Polar?"
'Just eighteen past, sir."
'You're too young, Peter."
'Sure every any I'm growing older,
ur riverence, and it's novor to soon
do right."
''How much ure you able to earn?"
'Not so much as 1 would like, sir*—
ly 10*. a week—but I hope things
11 mend."
'Why, mat), you couldn't keep
use on 10s. a woek."
'Well, sir, Kitty is willin' to try."
Further expostulation was useless,
d in duo time the willing Kitty borne Mrs. Kinselln.
In a tow years tho prattle of chil-
voices wus heard in Peter's cot-
je. After the labors of the day, as
sat before his turf-tire with n child
each knee, aud his darling Kitty
wing by his side, lio used to say he
is "as happy as a king." If those
in have the notion that "when Pov-
ty comes in nt the door Love Hies
.t at the window" would pay a visit
the sons and daughters nf toil iu
eland, they would find how falso is
o saying just quoted. True, the
iier is badly paid; but hu has conti t ment—u priceless boon; and has
<nerally good health—another iuesti-
nble blessing. And yet it would
ive been better had Peter waited a
tie longer before he took upon liim-
If matrimonial responsibilities. The
ish are, however, u mr.rrying race,
id no matter how pour they may be
ey liko to have a home of their own.
According to custom, Peter had to
, "house-warming"-thnt is, he
d to treat his relations nnd neighbors
ten and whiskey-punch. Thc serv-
nf a fiddler wure secured, and,
ith song and dance, tho hours glided
viftly by. Peter sang his favorite
nig, -'Did you ever henr tell of Kate
!earny?" Mrs. K. was pressed to
ut:, but she said she was "ull through*
her," and, under the circumstances,
was excused. The night's enter-
linment cost -something, and Mr.
jnsella wus n very poor man; but tho
iBtom of the country must be observ-
riiere is a good deal of whut has
sen termed "fortune-hunting" iu
viand; of course there ure myriads
ho
"Marry for love
And work for siller;"
there, nlso, nre n considerable
umber who like to get the "siller"
ithout workimr; in other words thoy
it their heart on murrying a wealthy
ifs. They keep this object constantly
afore thein, and when they hear that
young lady nt Bully macmurphy will
ave a "large fortune," olf they start
ith the object of getting introduced
the fair one. Sometimes these formic hunters are greatly disappointed,
hie mnn had prowled through three
r four counties in search of a wealthy
•ifo. He wus informed that Widow
lacSwoeny's daughter would have a
stockingfull of sovereigns," and he
ist no time in becoming acquainted
ith sweet Miss MacS. He was in-
ited to Fairview, nnd was cordially
ceived by tho widow, who talked
hunt bank books, railway shares, and
;k, in such n way that ho imagined
la hud ut last accomplished his object,
tlrendy the "fortune" secerned iu his
u-sseasion. On his second visit he was
iken round the farm, and his atteti-
ion was particularly called to the large
umbor of cows nnd sheep in tho men-
nws. Mow, us a faithful historian, I
nust record the fact that the stock in
he field with thu exception of three
nws and two sheep, had been borrnw-
d from obliging neighbors who were
riixious to nssist, the widow in securing
, good husband for her daughter.
lira. MacS. enlarged upon the' high
trices given for young cattle, and gave
glowing nccount of the sums realized
iy this part of her operations alone.
iVheu thoy reached the houso decau-
ers and glasses wero on the table in
he room, nnd the widow, with her
wn hands, prepared for Mr. Verdant
rousing glass of punch. In n short
inni ho was induced to drink anothor
o "my daughter's health and a good
lusband to hor." Miss MacS. blushed.
f courso, and wus nbout to leave the
■ooiii; she was, however, detained by
ler mothor, who said, ''Don't be backyard, doar."
Oh, mamma"—
She's the Iu-bI girl iu the country,
n treasure to her mother, and it
,vill be well for the mun thnt gets her."
By this time tho liquor, that cause
i bo much ill, was telling on Mr. Variant, and golden visions wero passing
leforo his eyea.
Tha widow left the room—"just to
iee that all's right in tho cow-house."
Taking advantugo of the opportunity, Mr. Verdant laid seige to Bridget's heart, and won from her a con
lent to their marriage.
When the widow returned she was
rejoiced to hear the good news, nnd
iffeotionately kissed her daughter.
"She'll ba it sad loss to me, sir, but
I can't stand in the way of Bridget's
happiness." * .
}   "And when ii the job to be finish-
ad 1" asked the ardent lover.
I  "Oh,   there's  no   hurry,"  replied
Bridget.'
"Juat let it be whenever the young
man likes/' put fn the wily widow,
tn a month the marriage was celebrat-
id, and, after a sumptuous repait at
Mnriew, the happy pair, accompanied
jr their friends—alt on the "Irish
auntinn'oar"—drove to a pretty resort
ibout six miles distant. In the village
nn some pleasant hours were spent,
ie the shades of evening were gather-
na the bride and bridebroom bade the
arty good-bye, and drove to Spring-
ale, their future home. ■
Mr. Verdant'i "house-warming
ftu a grand affair. His friends all bo-
eved that he would receive a large
,rttme with his wife, and » they ox-
-Mted jrtat things.   They were not
best was ordered, and goodies wero
provided for the ladies. A fiddler and
piper were engaged, and in nu adjoining barn dancing wns the order of tho
niijht. Indeed, the "house-warming"
at Springvnle, like O'Rourke's wedding,
"Will ne'er be forgot
By those who were there,
Or those who were not,"
A round of parties followed, for
Mr. and Mra. Verdant had a busy time
of it responding to the invitations of
tlioso who enjoyed their hospitality at
the "house-warming."
At length Mr, V, had time to think
of practical affairs, and ho deemed it
prudent to visit his mamma-in-law.
Mounting a good horse, ho was soon at
Fnirview, where ho was cordially re
ceived and hospitably entertained.
After somo conversation on general
mutters, Mr. V. timidly said:
"You will not think it odd, Mrs.
MacSweeny, if I mention the matter
of Bridget's fortune."
Oh, deur, not at all; Bridget will
just have £50 ($250), and I am afraid
I must nsk vou to take it in instalments."
Mr. Verdant wns speechless. He
He had "married in haste," and now
ho must repent ut leisure. At length
lie gave strong expression to his hitter
disappointnjoht', but Mrs. MacSweeny
cut Ins eloquonco short by coolly adding, "I'm thinking now of getting
married myself, nnd, of course, I must
mind No. 1."
Whether the instalments wore regularly pnid I can not say; but few persons were found shedding tears over
Mr, Verdunt's failure to find a "fortune."
By tho wny, it is not the first time
iu Ireland that both cows and sheep
hnvo boen borrowed with tho object of
making favorable impressions; and it
is also customary to borrow china, silver tea-pots, otc, to give an appearance of respectability to the tca-tnble
when entertaining young men who are
known to be in soarch of a wife. Parenthetically, I may add, thnt cows,
sheep, etc., uro often borrowed by
struggling farmers in order to mako a
good bIiow—give nu air of prosperity
to tho plnco when the lund agent is expected to visit their farms.
Those fortune-hunters sometimes
drive hard bargains. Farm ia weighed
against farm, house against house, cow
against cow.
A4man iu the south of Ireland courted a fuir girl, and at length spoke to
her father on tho subject of marriage.
"What fortune will you give her?"
asked Mr. Tom Skinflint.
"She'll have the farm at the mill, a
horse, six cows, and £100 (8500) to
furnish a house," replied the father.
"That's not enough," said Tom.
"Well, not a tenpenny piece more
will I give."
Tom saw he had u firm gentleman to
deal with, and after thinking over the
matter, he said:
"I'll take her if you throw the litter
of pigs into the bargain."
The ton young gruntera wero pwun-
ised to Tom, und the mutter wns settled.
In the North of Ireland a young
man was accepted as the future husband of an industrious girl in humble
life. In u conversation with her father
he asked:
"How much will you bo nble tu give
hor?"
"The small farm at tho cross roads,
£20 ($100), a little furniture, and a sot
of china."
"Oould you give hor more?"
"No. I havu had a good deal of
affliction, and I am uot so woll off as
I wob. YoU're getting a good wifo,
however, and that is better than lands
or money."
"I know she's n good girl, and Til
tako her; but (glancing around the
kitchen) I would like that big pot."
The big pot was thrown in, and in
a few weeks tho marriage wub celebrated.
In Ireland tho ' 'go-between" plays
an important part in matrimonial
affairs. Sometimes he is a mutual
friend; at other times a wandering
dealer in ladies' clothing or jewelry;
and I have known the role to be tilled
by a female mendicant. The "go-
between" conveys messages or carries
love-letters. Indeed, ministers sometimes try their hand at match-making,
and I have known somo of tho matches
made in this way turn out very badly.
In thc rural districts marriages are
regarded with much interest, and if
the parties newly wodded aro popular,
bonfires blaze from every eminence,
and thoro are other marks of rejoicing.
The people turn out in large numbers
to manifest their good feeling, and it
is customary for either the bridegroom
or the bride's father to commission the
owner of the nearest public house to
supply refreshments to those who have
lighted thu fires and cheered so lustily.
In respectable, well-to-do society
the wedding breakfast is a grand affair;
thu bride's cake is cut over her hend,
and tho toast of "the happy pair" is
duly honored—among tho teetotalers
in pure, sparkling water. Thon tho
newly-married pair get ready for their
departure, and aa they make thoir
appearance in the hull they are assailed
right nnd left with a shower of old
shoes und slippers. It is considered
lucky to throw nn old shoo aftor a
person who ts starting on an important
journey. After the usual affecting
leave-taking, thoy enter tho carriage
and away they go to spend their honeymoon.
Marriage iu Ireland is regarded as a
sacred, Heaven-appointed rite; nnd
tho beautiful island is dotted over
with happy homes, basking iu the
sunshine of pure, God-givon love!
Long muy Ireland bo celebrated for
thu valor of her sons und tho virtue
of her daughters'
