Frldaj Evening, December SI, ISM.
■** ^j^ffr >«,r/SsPon<j0'1' of !the
Winnipeg 'ft«M sends the following:
The whole, oity is absorbed at present in thi q»ail-e»Uug.question.
A oity alderman has offered $500
to the man who will eat thirty quail
in thirty consecutive 'days. He
wants to advertise Chicago's gastro-
nomic and digestive powers to the.
whole world, and is apparently in a
fair way to succeed, although' the;
honor:is;» oloubtfcl one,,' <twa youn*!
men areUl It, otae naihetlMnnri ana
the other Miller. At first sight it
does not seem hard to eat thirty
quail in thirty days, but at present
both contestants seem siok of it.
Mann «ays he has not been at it'
long' enough to feel bad when he
tries to swallow the meat, but he
anticipates a hard time of it eight-
een or twenty diys from now. Miller has reaohed his eighteenth day,
and says the quails are beginning to
look as big as a leg of mutton and
as dis»greeable>a* ahmburger cheese
to a Frenchman. He and Mann
eat differently. The latter chats
and laughs while he eats and takes
his time at it, which the doctors say
will help him out in the end. Miller, on the contrary,, masticates the
food in the shortest posoiblo time
and doesn't stop to talk about anything., ' Recently his eyes had begun to bulge but itt every mouthful.
Betting is, 'lively and: there il now
about $10,000 wagered on the result exclusive of the original wagers.
The aldermen are taking great interest in it and several propose to
undertake the feat themselves. I
am going to suggest bringing a few
Winnipeg aldermen down to knock
them out.
If the American protectionists
are wise they will regard the president's deliverance on the tariff not
as a proclamation of hostility to be
met with blind resistance, but as
the warning: of good sense to consider their situation.   The principle
laid down by Mr. Cleveland, that it
is wrong to take from the people in
taxes any more than is necessary
for the economical administration
of the. .government, is   one which
cannot rail to receive the assent of
the national intelligence; nor, when
it has received the assent of the
national intelligence, can it fail in
a country   under popular government soon to influence legislation,
all  lobbies   and combinations not
withstanding.   Among other things
the scene of corruption which will
be opened by the necessity of annually squandering a great surplus
musts speedily produce its natural
effect on, the mind of the people.
Already the waste in pension arrears and other jobbery has been
scandalous beyond the worst record
ed examples of monarchical prodigality.     It is no longer a debate
between the rival theories of economists, in which intellectual gladiators  may  be  found to make the
worse appear the better cause, and
the plainest truth may be hidden
beneath a cloud of misleading sata-
tistics and fallacious phrases.    It is
a plain and naked case of a vast
annual tribute levied on the community at large, without any neces
sity of government or other public
exigency for the benefit of a particular interest.    The end of such a
system mustcoine; and if the American manufacturers are wise, their
aim will be to contrive that it shall
come with the least possible shock
to the protected industries.   In this
they will have reasonable free traders  on their side.    Nobody in his
senses cun desire a crash, nor cun
any  man   of  fair mind refuse to
acknowledge that the national faith
is in some measure pledged to industries  built  on a policy which
leemed to have been definitely adopted by the nation.   Tho situation of
iur Canadian maufacturers differs
From that of  the American, inasmuch as here We have, instead of a
lurplus, a deficit, und one not likely
io diminish.     But, on the othor
land, the vices of the system, which,
n the case of the United States,
ire not only veiled but largely heu
ralized by the magnitude of the
:ountry and the variety of its home
iroduotions, here show themselves
•ithout disguise or mitigation, and
sill  soon be brought home to the
inderstunding of the people.    Gun-
idian  protectionism   is  a branch
rhich has grown out of the heart
if the American tree, nnd will not
urvive its parent stem.   But here
Iso those who have invested thoir
apital   in   manufactures  on   the
trength of the expectations held
ut by the govornment may appeal
9 national  faith, ahd to avoid a
rath ill hot less desirable on this
han on the other side of the line.

Friday Evening, December 31, 18811,
Herry Christmas!
'J'o-moi'i'ow will be observed as a
public holiday in commemoration of
the greatest event in the world's
history. Although the actual dnte
of the birth of the Saviour iB a matter of considerable conjecture, by
common consent the: 2Dth ot December has been accepted as the
day to be observed in remembrance
of it. An eminent divine has made
the declaration that "no one knows
or ean know when the Saviour wos
born, but we do kriow that it was
not on Christmas Day." It' is not
a matter of very great importance
after all, perhaps, that the precise
day should be known. Christmas
has been established and observed
for ages as a memorial of tho event,
and it is an occasion when all Christians ought witli* glad hearts fo call
to remembrance that of which it is
the anniversary. Although the
date of the birth of Christ is. involved in obscurity, tho facts of his
birth and life and death are as well
established as any other historio
event of equal antiquity. Evenvthe
enemies of Christianity admit Hie
existence of such a personage, although they deny his divinity
and refuse to accept his dopr.
trine. The influence of tlut doctrine, however, has been, very large
ly felt in the world's history.
The progress of Christianity has
been remarkable. Having itiorigih
in obscurity, it now elaims its adherents by hundreds of millions,
and the most powerful kings arid
emperors in the universe bow to its
authority.' lt is too much for us to
expert*, universal- language, but wo
look forward:-confidently to tho
time when there will bo only oho
religion in the world, and that will
be the religion inaugurated nearly
1900 years ago by the Messiah.
There are fewer Christians in the
world to-day than thero are heathen;
but in power, and wealth, and civilization, and progress the Christian
nations present a most remarkable
contrast with the nations where pa
ganism and Mohammedanism and
Buddhism prevail. Air the world
may be said to'be under tribute to
Christianity. Where other religious
systems prevail there is generally
decay and weakness: where Christianity inspires the minds and hearts
of men, there is constant progress
and development. The prophetic
utterances pf the bible make it certain that Christianity will conquer
the world, and the signs of the
times all lead us to the snme conclusion. The causes which have
been operating for the past four
centuries are still in existence, exercising increased influence upon the
nations. Paganism and Buddhism
are crumbling away, and from all
quarters come urgent appeals for
the gospel whioh we have recoived.
The duy should be one of gladness
to all hearts, because it is observed
in memory of the World's redemption. It is, as we have said, the
greatest event in the world's history,
because although it wus a great
work to "call .a world from naught,"
as a poet has aptly put it, it was
"greater to redeem," It is a day
when, while enjoying the bounties
of providence ourselves, we should
not forget those upon whom these
bounties have been less liberally bestowed. If we have plenty let us
remember the poor. It is always
"more blessed to give than to receive," and there is perhaps no duty
more plainly .enjoined upon his followers by the great Head of the
Church than that of ministering to
the comfort of thoso who nre in
want. It may be'said; without fear
of contradiction that there is no
nation on the globe so largely indebted lo Christianity ns the nation
to whieh We belong. When Greece
nnd Rome were loading the science
and philosophy and civilized thought
of the world, Britain had scarcely
begun to emerge from the obscurity
of her littleness and the darkness of
the worst forms of heathenism. The
pomp and power of Home and
Greece are now known only as records of ancient history, while Britain maintains lirst place among the
great family of nations, and the
"flag that braved > thousand years
the battle ahd the breeze" has become the emblem of power and liberty to the very ends of the earth.
It is not civilisation that has accomplished tliis for Great Britain;
it is not the superior intelligence of
our ancestors, or the natural resources of the country: it is the
religion the establishment of which
we are about to celebrate, Queen
Victoria's answer to the monarch who
asked the cause of our national
success was the true answer. "The
bible," said she, "is the secret of
Britain's greatness!", Let us cherish
and defend our Christianity, and
above all'let'"it enter into all our
plans and purposes, and wc need
have no fear for the years that nre
to come,. The Columbus . wishes
nil its readers » very happy Christ-

flS-THAT^S*
To the Electors of tlio District of
Sew Westminster.
." GENTLEMEN.-In offering, myself to
the District of Westminster to represent
you lu the Commons this coming opening of the House, I do so In all sincerity,
believing that I cau do more for your interests than any of the gentlemen that
have comeftfrffftrd'so far. I am a thorough
Conservative and in entire sympathy
with the present government, who have
rirovcd themselves the friend Jn need nnd
ii deed to British Columbia.
Gentlemen, I have my private feelings
and opinions on. most of, the questions of
the day, bot If I go to the House by your
sanction to represent you, I shall submit
to your commands und directions which
you can send me asthedlflerentmiestlons
of the day present themselves ahd as circumstances. Interests and opinions change
on the spot, to be represented; fori hold
that in going to parliament by your vote
and pleasure, I go as your trusted agent
and not as your lord and master, as some
have thought and acted Accordingly when
otft of your reach.
Temperanco, gentlemen, Is ono of the
questions that troublo the distriot at the
present time. Now, gentlemen, wheu the
right time arrives for urf to receive prohibition nono will bo found to work for that
measure with more sincerity or energy
than I, nnd no government on earth will
be more happy to grunt tliat measure than
they; but the time has not arrived yet, 1
am sorry to-say, and I say further, that
the time for. prohibition entirely rests
with the temperance people themselves,
for as soon as they prove tlieir sincerity In
tlie cause by petitioning pari lament to put
a tax on tea, colfee and other articles, and
on Income If necessary, thereby providing
revenue to carry on the govornment, then
and then only can thoy. succeed ln their
cause, thon hnd then only can the government comply with their wishes. Money
Is the root of all evil, so parsons tell us,
and money Is the mighty lever that Is going to lift you Into ihat haven of temperance you nll so desire and dream of.
GeiiUoiftcn, I fully realize the Import-
mice of your selecting a good and proper
man to represent you at Ottawa, und 1 also
fully realize thc fact thut I at so great distance am working to a great disadvantage; but, gentlemen,! trust to your Intelligence and to tke friendship of my old
friends, and feel satisfied you will do Justice to yourselves who are to be benellttcd
or Injured by yonr selection.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I undertake
to serve you sincerely and faithfully ln
all things if sent to tne Commons to represent you tliere, and If you do not I can
stop at home, help you when I can, and
sincerely wish you may be as well served
as I would like to serve yeu myself
Gentlemen, you can give me my answer
nt the polls, and whether I goorstuyl
shnll always remain
Yours truly anil sincerely,
de24-dlew-wtc        JAMES CODVILLE.

relative to the schemes of the western

Thia year (1880-87) the sum of 130,000
will be required for home missions, in
addition to the 830,000 needed ior
augmentation. Of this sum (23,000
is expended upon Manitoba and the
Northwest alone. For British Columbia some 84,000 to $5,000 wiil be
required, leaving onlv about 88,000
for the 'older provinces.. Since last
general assembly the new Presbytery
of Columbia haa been erected and several additional missionaries sent to
that distant province. Other names
are before the committee for appointment. .The salaries of these missionaries are, of necessity, guaranteed for
the first year by the committee, ss the
fields are new and the amount that the
geople oan give not easily determined,
lesides this, the traveling expanses of
the missionaries and their wives to
their respective fields of labor hare to

Tbe Provincial University
' Kditor Columbian: I am sure your
recent article on the proposed provincial
university will meet with the approval
of everyone who wilt give the subject
any consideration. Your correspondent
" Suggestion," while agreeing that it is
ai yet a little too soon to start a university, seems disposed to' object to it
principally because if one is established
uow it must be in Victoria, Even this
argument Is not carried through the
whole of his letter, for *, few Hues further down he" actually recommends
that a university be established next
year, despite the fact that it is hardly
likely that "centres ami population
will change much in that time. It is
difficult to understand why " .Suggestion" wants a university controlled liy
the different religious bodies, In older
centres of education tho tendency is to
non-denominational teaching, aud students (except candidates for. tlio ministry) favor such institutions; while experience has proved such institutions to
be more successful than those under any
denominational control. Any university suoh as proposed by "Suggestion"
would be useful mainly in granting degrees in theology, but at present the
different churches seem to have as many
pastors as they can pay for, and however
honorable and profitable it would be to
those engaged in teaching, the net effect
would be the sending out eaoh year of a
certain number of young men with very
inferior degrees, for whom there would
be no opening.
No, Mr Kditor; let us find some other
way in which to celebrate her majesty's
Jubilee, ' It ie very evident that at present there are not in British Columbia
the necessary teachers nor the necessary
population, nor has the province tlie
money to support a first-class university;
and rather than a second-rate affair like
Victoria or a third-rate like Manitoba,
let us do without any until we can have
i good one.   I am, sir, yours, etc.,

Nkw Orleans, Dec. 23,-r-Today
tho 2nd engineer, Thos. Hunter, and
0 Ohinese firemen of tho British str.
Suez, went to the coal bunkers for the
purncmo of trimming the coal. The
engineer carried a lamp, and as soon
as he entered the bunkers an explosion occurred caused by accumulated
gas coming' in contact with the flame
of tho lamp. The ongineer and the 0
firemen were .badly burned about the
face, hands and body. Hunter and 3
of the Ohinamen were fatally burned.
Rome, Dec. 23 —Tho pope; in re-
receiving Christmas congratulations
from the college of cardinals spoke; at
some length of the position of the
Church in Italy./ He protested against
the anti-clerical movement which is
is being carried on in the country and
said the holy see is .now despoiled of
the laat remnants of'' its patrimony;
The only liberty left to him was that
held by the Roman pontiffs in the
.earliest ages. The Italian government,
he declared, had assisted the laity hi
unduly interfering witli the administration of the church i had exalted religious bodies and had tolerated an
organized hostility against the Vatican.
As the head of the church he must
continue to protest against the position
in which he is placed.
The pope thanked the Canadian
Catholics for their adherence. to the
views expressed in'tho encyclical letter.

Liverpool, Dec. 24.—Tho largest
and most destructive fire in Liverpool
since 1847 occurred this morning when
the extensive retail store of John
Lewis & Co, on Brunswick road was
entirely destroyed. Tlie stores contained an immense stock, all of which
waa consumed. The total loss is a
million dollars.
London, Dec. 24.—The str. Smile,
which sailed from Southampton this
morning for New York has ou board
329,000 pounds in gold. Tlio ironclad
barge Sultan ran into and sank the
French steamer Villa de Victoria,
while the latter was lying at anchor in
theTagus. The Viotoria had 260 per-
sons on board and several of thom
wero drowned. „ The Sultan is a
steamship, iron-plated, and is of 9200
tons.. Later, intelligence shows that
must of the crew' and passongers of the
Victoria were drowned. It is also
learned that both vessels were at anchor at the time of the collision. The
Sultan dragged her anchors and drifted
against theFrench ship.
The Tunes commenting on the reason
given for Lord Randolph Churchill's
resignation—tliat he was opposed to a
measure in the military and naval estimates,—says the estimates arc extraordinary and only provide for a moderate strengthening of the naval and
military armaments of the empire,
rendered necessary by the outlook of
foreign affairs.
Paris, Deo. 24.—The French press
hss been warned against the publishing
of military news as it would be of use

explUft TotOT^doliffi Churchill's
realisation from the cabinet thero ia
nothing to bo said except that there'
is not much to be deplored, but if the
local government bill waa tbe cause
then the guvernment haa grievously
erred, The Evening News says patriots are pained, and surprised. It
asks Dots. Randolph to justify hia
cour«erirFah.ing'him that if he doea
not hia name will nover be heard
hereafter without exciting exasperation. The Qlobe. seys it would be difli
cult for the .warmest admirers of Lord
Randolph Churchill to vindicate hiB
step. Tlie Pull 3tfaW Gazette deolares
it will he impossible for Lord Salisbury to govurn unless Lord Hartington steps, into.the breach. -It Bays it
is impossible to conceive of any hypothesis upon whioh Lord Hartington
cuuld defend morally or politically his
refusal to accept the post which Lord
Randolph Churchill haB vacated. The
queen sent hn1 private secretary, Gen.
Sir Frederick Ponaouby, to London
to-day with it message for Lord Salisbury,-— 	
Lord Hartington will return to London immediately, and until he arrives
the Marquis of Salisbury will remain
reticent. If ia thought improbable
that Hartington will accept the office,
aa Chamberlain and a majority of
unionist leaders object to his doing
so. On tho other hand, it is learned
frumflhtollableipurce that the queen
will ult her utmost pressure to induce >
him t» join the ministry and become
conaemtive leader iu the house of
common's, believing that he alone can
neutralize tho effect of Lord Randolph
Churchill's course. If Hartington refuses to take the office conservatives
favor Sir Michael Hicks-Beach resuming tbe duties of chancellor of the
exchequer, and the appointment of
the Rt. Hon. Edward Stanhope, tho
present; colonial secretary, to the Irish
chief' secretaryship. Lord Salisbury
had a long conference to-day with the
Rt. Hon. W, H. Smith, secretary of
state for wrfr^ tsitd Bir''Frederick Pon-
sonby. The prime minister returned
to Hatfield house this evening. The
queen summoned Lord Randolph
Churchill aiid Lord Geortre Hamilton,
first lord of the admiralty, to Windsor
on Tuesday. Failing to reconcile
Lord Randolfit's views, the queen
cave liim timo to consider the points
at issue. Lord Salisbury was aware of
Lord Randolph's decision yaterday,
nnd the matter was whispered at the
ball given at Hatfield House last
evening. The hitter's premature di-
vul»unce of his decision to tho Tinm
is considered to be a breach of faith,
Mathews, home secretary, jb the only
member of the cabinet whose resignation js considered probable.. Rt Hon.
C. T. Richie, president uf the local
government board, and Mr. W. L.
Jackson,' financial secretary uf the
treasury, who share Lord Randolph's
views* may possibly resign. Churchill
iu «n interview to-day said that his
hualrn wat better than it has been for
months past. Hia decision to retire,
he said, was the result of due deliberation, and arose from no ill temper or
meanness of office. He has abandoned hi contemplated visit to Ireland.    ?  gV ■■•
The cabinet • will. not meot. next
Wednesday,- tbe ministers passing
Christmas at their homes. Lord Randolph Churchill authorizes the statement that he will continue to give general support to the government and on
disputed questions in parliament will
hold ■■aloof, avoiding anything that
might tend to jeopardise the cordial
relatMs existing between Tories nnd
unionists.
It is reported that Lord Salisbury
has renewed his offer of the premiership to Lord Hartington, be himself
prnpmtn&to take the foreign portfolio, Aim Lord Hartington to have the
right to select a portion of the cabinet.
Carlton and other conservative clubs
arw almost deserted owing to the hull-
itayvlwt tfie few tn ambers remaining
give unlimited expression to their fury
against Churchill, stigmatizing him as
a traitor who will be forever unworthy
of party confidence. The conservative
association of Lord Randolph's constituency is arranging for the appointment ol a committee to oall upon him
and demand' an explanation of his
eonduct. An informal meeting of
OhidstoniaiH was huld nt tho National
Liberal club to-night. There was
muoh rejoicing over the prospective
break-up of the conservative-unionist
alliance, And the hope was expressed
tli.it a gradual nppruachinent of tho
Ghiirchill-ChamberUiu alliance to the
(jladeitniiane will result in the courso
of tlmafiming session of parliament
and thr return of  Gladstone to oflico.
A reporter called on Parnell at
Euston Square hotel to-day. He looked
much paler and thinner than during
than during the late session, but he is
evidently making good progress. He
said that hia physician believes he
will he stronger thaw f. rmerly. He
aaid his illness became acute about
tho end of October, but for several
months previously he had been losing
llesh, appetite and strength until
in tho August Session ho felt almost
entirely unable to do any work.
Continuing, ho said, after my malady Imd become fully developed
f waa unable to read or write
anything or attend to any kind of
business for several weoks, nnd it is
only within the last 4 weeks tlmt I had
permitted myself oven to think of political affairs, while even now the excitement uf the last few days has distinctly, brought mo back and made mo
feel vftjh.i ParnoU then turned to
the \*>hlm\ situation. He remarked
that thu government, tiow thnt Lord
Randolph Churchill hnd resigned,
would have something else to think of
than .OWPivp powera. In atiy caso,
lieuautjsi M ' Ih* inswked Absence nf
crime, tlie general moderation with
which the campaign hud been conducted and the fuet that the object of tlie
govemment and of the campaign pro-
mo tew was the same, namely that of
obtaining rent abatement from unreconciled landlord!,.had taken away
.many of usual excuses for coercion.
Regarding tlie legality of the campaign, Parnell said he was unwilling
to make Justice O'Brien and Justico Johnston, both of whom were
strong political parties and who had
received their office in. reward for.
political services, and who wero no-'
toriously lawyers of mediocre ability
Thoro was confusion in the judgment
— authorities on that question
itself as well as in tho proclamation.
In any caso, continued Parnell, if it
should be generally and clearly decided by high legal opinion of recognized authority that tlio campaign is
illegal, you must remember it will be
only tyrannically illegal and only so
because tho same right of combination which tho legislature after much
agitation legalised for the British
workmen under the name . of trades
unionism lias not yet been extended
to the IriBh tenant farmers.
It is now stated that Ritchie is
perfectly satisfied with tho cabinet's
local. government policy and does not
intend to retire.
Bkulin, Dec. 23.—The snow storm
haB ceased. The railway blockade at
Dresden and Leipsic continues. Postal
service by sleighs were started to-day
between Chemnilzinct, Leipsic and
other centres. A telegram says that
coal and provisions are very scarce
there and tliat there iB great want of
cattle for slaughter. The North German Gazette emphatically denies the
reports of the progressist press that
Prince Bismark declares against dissolving the reichstag and that the government hopes to reach an understanding with the reichstag on the basis of
the centre proposals. The Gazette
adds that in government circles there
exists no doubt whatever of the necessity of maintaining the army bill at
any price. The bourse to-day closed
depressed under tlie influence of a renewal of aalea to realize dealings, together with an increasing demand for
money. The Churchill incident has
shaken confidence in the stability of
the Salisbury government and has revived fern's of impending war. It iB
reported tliat Dr. Windthorst has informed Gen. You Schellendorff, minister of war, that if the government
should proceed with the formation of
now centres for the lst of April the
reichstag would be certain to give a
bill of indemnity but the centre would
go no further. The commission of
staff oflicers continues making arrangements for new troops just as if the bill
was already passed. The war minister
is hastening tlie production of repeating rifles. It is expected that the land
tag will meet on January 14th.
Among the bills to be introduced is a
new measure for an organic revision of
the navy laws.

Surveyors are at work in township 2
surveying the unappropriated timber
land into 40 acre lots. It is the intention, we beliovo, of the Dominion government to sell these lots at the rate
of $5 per acre to the settlers of the
flats. The belief is general among
those interested in future purchases
that the price should be the nominal
dollar per acre. Under the superintendence of William Murray the work
of repairs on the Yale road bridge is
fast nearing completion. Last week
at the camp of Mr. Jus. Murne on
Campbell river occurred a very interesting event worthy of a place in
natural history. Early in the dim
light of the morning Charlie, the Chinese cook in the employ of Mr. Murne,
noticed u commotion among liis geese,
and on going out to Bee what was the
matter found a large brown-horned
owl engaged in combat with oue of his
geese. Before Charlie could, however,
reach her the gander of the flock came
to tlio rescuo and seizing the owl by
the nape of tlio neck dragged him
quickly down the steep bank into the
river, where he treated him to a disagreeable bath. The gander in this
mode of warfare Imd the best of it,
and tho owl was beginning to drown
when Charlie fished hiin out and re-
relieved his gandcrship of his charge
and became executioner in his stead.
By tho death of William H. Mackenzie
on Thursday Uie 16th inst. the municipality lost une of its most promising,
enterprising, and respected young
men.- Though his death was not wholly
unexpected, yot his friends believed
that ho would bo spared to them for
some time. He was a native of Kincardine, Ontario, aud came to this
province in the spring of 1878. Ho
waB engaged a couple of seasons iu the
canneries ou the Fraser river. In
1880-81 he was on thu survey of the
C.P.R. nlong the Thompson. Since,
ho hus been a permanent resident of
Surrey. About three yenrs ago he
caught n cold, which, neglected,
brought on consumption. Last year
he was clerk of the municipality. Ho
was elected councillor the present
year, but won compelled to resign on
account of. failing health. His B.ck-
ncss was borne with uniform patience,
and throughout his late illness few
were aware, judging from the buoyancy of his spirits, that the end was so
near. His losa will ho severely felt
in our community, for ho was a favorite with till. Tiie funeral took place
Sunday tho 10th and was largely attended, in spite of the disagreeable
weather and muddy roads. He was
buried in ChviBfc Church cemetery,
Surrey, liis remains being interred
with Oddfellow's honors and the impressive burial service of tho Episcopal church, pronounced by the rector,
the Rev. Wm. Bell.
