Current Events nnd Opinions,
Tho Standard, yelping in the
wake of our unscrupulous and sen-
national evening contemporary,
makos a ludicrous attempt to create
a panic in the publio mind in connection with the provincial finances.
It is just possible our contemporary
is stupid enough to believe the
stories it retails second hend; but it
is far more probable that, knowing
these statements to be false, or misleading, it is actuated by the same
motives as the journal of which it
is becoming a wheyey echo, vi/,: a
mere desire to damage the government, with the hope of ultimately
securing office for the "Sicks Party."
In its leading article this morning,
it makes tho astounding announcement that tho committeo on public
accounts "come down in plain English and state that the $140,808
over-draft at tlio Bank of British
Columbia is a fact I! I" Now, we
wore under tho impression that a
similar revelation was made by tlie'
government during the first days of
the session, and that the thing has
been satisfactorily explained over
nnd over again in the house, on the
public platform and in the press.
But it has also been explained that
such over-drafts were not at nll uncommon when our contemporary's
own friends were in power. For
instance, on the 31st December,
1880, the over-draft at the bank
was upwards of one hundred thousand dollars, and was, in fact, much
larger in proportion to tho revenue
and expenditure upon public works
than the over-draft over which the
opposition are raising such a fuss
now. Then ugain, on the 31st
December, 18S2, the last year of
the Beaven administration, the overdraft was nearly seventy thousand
dollars; but some eighty thousand
dollars wits owing for work done.
Surely that money, kept back for
the most part from working men,
was less creditable to the government than if it hud gono to swell
the over-draft of that dato to fully
what it was last December. But
let us sec what necessity there was
for an over-draft at the ond of 1882,
as compared with the end of 1885.
Let us seo how much was dono in
the matter of roads, streets, bridges
and buildings during three years.
In 1882 the amount set down for
these purposes was $102,435. Last
year the amount was $302,360, or
very nearly threo limes us much!
Looking at the matter in the light
of those figures, shall the government be blamed for hastening the
construction of roads and bridges
in the various districts, whero there
was such a pressing necessity for
them, and thus having recourse to
an over-draft, instead of following
in the footsteps of their predecessors and keeping baok much needed
public works and keeping workmen
out of their pay, in order to keep
down an over-draft which could
hurt no one! Such statesmanship (1)
is characteristic of the present
leader of the opposition; but we feel
confident it is not such as will commend itself to the judgment of the
country. Having made tho startling announcement of the over-draft,
our contemporary proceeds to misrepresent what tho minister of
finance said before the committee
and says: "Nothing can bo moro
appalling than the statement that
the bank sum cannot bu recouped
during the present year, and that
some districts must suitor, for the
reason that the amounts voted by
the house for these purposes have
lieen exceeded in others." » » *
Let us deal with what is imputed
to the minister of finance. We
quote from the Timtss "The finance
minister is of opinion that thi overdraft cannot be rapaid to the bank
out of the rovenue for the year in
addition to meeting all the requirements for tho current year." Assuming the above to be correct, as it
is copied from the committee's report, it will be observed that it js
the opinion of ous of tho ministers,
and nothing more. But how it
found a placo in the committee's report, or what business it had there,
we confess ourselves at a loss to
understand. Thore it is, howover;
and what does it amount tot Simp,
ly this, thut it may not be the best
polioy to stint expenditure for necessary public works for the sako of
making both ends meet this year.
O, but that means a deficit! Well,
suppose it does. Is tliere uny thing
so very terrible in having to borrow
a small sum in ordor that the liberal policy of making roads, bridgos
ami necessary buildings may bo continued" The previous administration borrowed at eight per cent.,
and squandered tho money. The
present government can borrow at
less than fivo per cent., and will not
squander. But, it occurs to us to
enquire what is the amount! Oppo-

VOLUME 29
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. C, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 3, 1886.
NUMBER 18
sition journals talk about the overdraft of $140,000. That was the
amount on tho 31st December, But
they conveniently conceal tho fact
that tho Dominion subsidy of $106,-
000 reduced tho over-draft to $34,-
000 on tho very next day. They
likowise conceal the fact that,
whereas the bulk of expenditure
occurred during the six months ending 31st December, tho hulk of
revenue comes in during the six
ending 30th June next, and in the
regular order of things, it is to be
expected that the excessive expenditure of the first six months will
be compensated for by excessive
receipts during the second six
months. We have conversed ^?ith
the minister of finance, and he
says that should the revenue between now and the 30th of June
oome in according to calculation,
there certainly will bo no deficit at
tho end of the present fiscal year.
But our contemporary is not content with endeavoring to create a
panic and injure the public credit,
by raising a falso alarm. He endeavors also to excite alarm and
jealousy in tho different districts
by the absurd statement that "some
districts must suffer, for the reason
that the amounts voted by the house
for theso purposes havo been exceeded in others." Upon enquiry, we
learn that the appropriation! in two
districts on Vancouver blind and
ono on the Mainland hava .been ex
ceeded to a trifling extent; but that
other districts will "suffer" or
less than the appropriations voted
by the house is sheer nonsense. The
government could not take from one
district aud give to another, if they
would. And they would not, if they
could. Next, the public are asked
to believe that then is something
terribly wrong in the accounts for
the six months ending 31st December, and that the government are
trying to cover it up. Now, as a
matter of fact the abstract of rej
ceipts and expenditure covering that
period usually laid before the house
was submitted some time ngo. That
abstract, the correctness of which is
vouched for by the provincial auditor, shows exactly where the money
hns gone. Would it not be more
honest, would it not be more honor-
ablo of the opposition organs to give
their readers the benefit of the in-
formation contained in that abstract
than to be indulging in sweeping
inuendo about misappropriation I
In addition to the usual abstract
statement, the government, in pur
suance of Mr Beaven's resolution,
which they made their own by
amending it, are having prepared,
as rapidly as possiblo, a detailed
statement of receipts and expenditure to date, and pending its preparation, the leader of the opposition and the committee on public
accounts have had tho freest access
to thu accounts, and have, consequently, had ample opportunity to
discover if there be anything wrong]
Iu the face of all the facts, what
can be thought of these charges of
"covering up" and misappropriation!
Simply this, that the opposition,
having become desperate, will stick
at nothing in a dying strugglo to
clutch the rains of power. The sacred principles of truth and justice,
the publio credit, are nothing to
them. Everything must yield to
the political exigency of the "sicks
party." This mode of warfare cannot be reconciled with any civilized
code. It may, without any injustice, be compared to that of savage
banditti intoxicated by inordinate
desire for loot— Victoria Posl.

Contagious Diseases.
We are informed that there hia been
considerable loss of atock at Chilliwhack from diseases brought into the
district by cattle imported from Wash-
intrton Territory. Thii grievance waa
brought to tho notice of Hon, Jno.
Robion, senior member for tlie district, and to moot it ho had the follow-
ing resolution carried by the legislature:
"Whereas animali affected with contagious diseases aro from Ume to time
brought into the prolines from adja-
eont American territory, in consequence of which suoh diseases have
been communicated to auituals within
the province, and much valuable stock
thereby destroyed ou the mainland,
and more especially in the Chilliwhack
settlement; and whereu, there appears
to be no a-itborieed person or organised arrangement to prevent such diseased animals being indiscriminately
moved about, thereby spreading said
diseases through the country; bo it
therefore resolved, that an humble address be presented to His Honor the
Lieutenant-Governor, praying that
His Honor will be pleased to move the
Dominion government to make immediate arrangements for the effective
enforcement uf the Animal Contagious
Diseases Act In this Province." "■»
Alpinr Tunnbij-.—There are three
very long tunnels through the Alps,
and another is contemplated. The
existiiiR tunnels, named after tho
mountain chains thoy traverse, are
Mount Cenia, St. Gothard, and Arl-
berg tunnels, ranging from ty to 0}
miles in length und costing from $10,-
000,000 to *15,000.000 oach. The
Simplon tunnel, now proposed, is to
bu about 12A miles long and its eitl-
maud cost $20,000,000,

It is stated that another effort is
being made to break up tlie present
pvouiicinl pilot boards and throw
the whole pilot business of the province into the hands of one board
witli headquarters at Victoria. The
Nanuimo free Press protests ugninst
this proposal^ and so do we. Both
New Westminster and Nanaimo
have learned by said experience to
regard with suspicion any scheme
tbat may place nny of their interests in the hands of Victorians.
They have learned too much of the
bitter hostility that has existed in
the provincial capital ngainst any
place or any industry the development of wliich might become a rival
of Victoria. A provincial pilot
twnrtl controlled at Victoria would
not satisfy either Nanaimo or the
mainland, and it must not be conceded.
Returns laid before the legislature
show that since his election Mr. Jas
Cunningham has received 82,098.27
from the government for various
supplies. These supplies went to
gaols, sohools, asylum, government
offices, ko, Mr. Beaven contends
that Mr. Cunningham lias committed a breach of the act, and on the
Other hand it is contended that
there is no law to prevent members
furnishing supplies. The Independence of parliament act wns amended some years ago because a member of the Walkem-Beaven govemment violated its provisions, and, it
is said, was never restored. It is
also stated that several opposition
members are in the same fix as Mr.
Cunningham, nnd that, on this account nt lenst, the mutter will not
be pushed. If the law is imporfeofc,
it ought to be amended.
It is believed that the new division of time into 2*t consecutive
hours will very soon be adopted
generally on the whole of this continent. Some time ago a committee
wns appointed by tho Society of
Civil Engineers to report upon the
advisability of making the change,
and its report leaves little room to
doubt that the change will speedily
be made, Reports were received
from railway officials representing
over 100,000 miles of road urging
the 24 hour system, as well as telegraph lines and many other sources.
The C.P.R. has already determined
to adopt this system; and when it
goes into operation on railways,
steamers, telegraph lines, and in
post offices, its general adoption will
not be far off. People may therefore prepare to exchange their 12
hour dials for new ones of 24 hours;
nnd the terms a.m and p.m. must
disappear.
It was expected that some action
would be taken bythe United States
government to settle the questions
at issue between that country and
Canada relating to the fisheries.
Nothing bus 'wen done, howover,
and it would seem as if the Americans propose to go on fishing in our
waters without granting us any
privilege in compensation. Reports
from Ottawa indicate that this one-
side reciprocity iH not likely to be
permitted, The Dominion government has, apparently, made up its
mind to enforce Canadian rights,
and will not allow Americans to
tish iu Canadian waters until a
treaty of reciprocity of some kind
has been concluded. In a matter
ol thia sort the federal authorities
may reckon with the utmost confidence on the moral and physical
support of British Columbia. We
shall not allow the Ottdwa government to be sat upon.
Unpatriotic Journalism.
On the first page of this paper
we print extracts from two articles
whioh lately appeared in the Victoria Post relating to matters that
have occupied considerable attention
iu the legislature and the newspapers    The Times says these articles
were written by Hon. Mr. Smithe,
and  the Guardian intimates that
tlfir author is tho Hon. Mr. Robson.    But thore can be no question
tliat. they ari» well written; and instead of waking wild guesses respecting the autllorship of them, it
might he well for the organs to undertake the muoh more important
task of combatting, if they can, the
statements contained therein.   It is
quite likely the publio does not concern itselt about discovering where
the inspiration came from, but it is
a matter of most Berioua concern
whew and how our revenues sre ex
pended. It does seem to us both
unfortunate nnd extremely childish
for a newspaper deliberately
to misrepresent tho financial
condition of the country for
party purposes. One is left to
infer that with such journalists
pnrty is of much more importance
than country, inasmuch as they are
attempting to injure the country's
credit in tho hope of making political capital for their own party. We
fully agree with the suggestion that
the public works so much needed
throughout the country ought not
to be allowed to suffer, even if there
should be a deficit. We go even
further, and sny tbat if the present
revenues of tho province are not
sufficient to carry on needed improvements, it would bo better to
borrow money. At this most important period in our provincial
history, when all eyes are turned to
the golden province of the west, we
think it is not the part of wisdom
to jeopardize the interests of the
country for the sake of being able
to proclaim a surplus.
A Contrast.
During the past month a great
many people have arrived in this
province from the east, and every
one is struck with the contrast be-
tweeu the climate of the east and
tbat of British Columbia. While
the east has been shivering undor
pileB of snow, and vainly endeavoring to ward off the frigid waves of
a genuine blizzard, the people of
British Columbia have had no drawback to the enjoyment of uninterrupted climatic perfection except
rain. During the last days of February the rains ceased, and since
then nothing could have been lovelier than the weather we have been
enjoying. Since January there has
been no frost at all to speak of in
this part of the province. Our
winter began and ended with the
first month of the year. March
came in with the most radiant sunshine, nnd sinco its advent scarcely
a cloud 1ms come to screen the
beauty of the blue vault above.
During tho past week the western
coast of the Atlantic has experienced one of the bitterest snowstorms of the season. On Saturday and Sunday and Monday blizzards were fiercely raging about
New York and Boston, piling up
snow banks, burying railway trains,
and filling every body with frigid
sensations. The cold wave has extended even to the other side of the
Atlantic, and the people of Great
Britain are enjoying the full force
of its fury, It is a fact worthy of
note that while people in the cast
and in Great Britain are liable to
these disagreeable extremes occasionally, nothing of the kind ever
visits this part of the Pacific coast.
We never have a bl^zard here; indeed it is very rarely that we ever
have a storm of -any kind whatever.
Although this climate is subject to
many changes, yet one may with
certainty reckon upon its being
mild. It has always boen believed
that when more direct communication was opened between this province and the rest of the world, and
people residing elsewhere began to
discover the beauties of our incomparable climate, there would certainly be a large immigration to
these shores. The opening up of
direct communication iB now very
near at hand, and people will soon
have ample opportunity for making
the comparisons we have mentioned.
It will certainly be the care of the
C. P. R. people to see that outsid
ers are made acquainted with any
facts that may bring immigrants
and business to British Columbia;
and we shall be very much mistuken
if our advancement hereafter is not
marked by such strides as will surprise even thc most sanguine British
Columbian,

Nu doubt many people will wonder at

very few people knew anything about
it, as the notice was not inserted in

that the rote would have been very
much larger. In a matter of so great

Thb Inland Railway.—At four

completed tho laying of the rails to the

operation of laying the rails from Mr.
Meakin's residence past the depot was
witnessed by a number of citizens, and
on the laying of the laat rail, the workmen and others present, gave three
cheers for the Island railway. The
rails are uow laid from Chemainus
river to Nanaimo, aud the two large
locomotives run daily over that distance. The work of erecting round
houses, turn table, tanks, etc., will be
commenced immediately. These building will bo located near Albert street
and in front of Mr. IX Jones' residence. The necessary sidings will also
be constructed at once, and it is confidently expocted that trains will be
running betweon Esquimalt and Nanaimo by July lst next. At laat tho
whistle and snorting of the iron horse
of the Island railway can be heard in

the realization has arrived. —JVanatnio
Free Press,
From thk North Coant.—The str.
Idaho arrived at Nanaimo on Thursday, bringning news from Alaska up
to the 18th. A letter dated at Juneau
appears in the Free Press and from it
we take the following items: "The
stampmill on Douglas Island has been
wholly idle muat of the 'part'month
owing to a Failure of the water supply.
But recent heavy rains relieved thn
difficulty and on the arrival of the
Idaho it. was running full Wast. It
is thp intention to put in auxiliary
steam power at once in order to provide against any further dearth of
water. The new Olorinatiou Works
are in place and work satisfactorily.
Shipment by this month's stoamer was
907,000. Preparations are ubout completed for running a tunnel on the
Bears Nest location just north of tho
Trendwell. Placer miners aro preparing for the coming summer work, they
expect to resume work much earlier
this soason than last, owing to tho
small amount of snow in the basin.
The town is very quiet at present. No
more demonstrations hnve been made
against the Ohinamen."
Builmnu Opeuatio.ns. — A large
gang of men nre at work on Mr. Herring's four cottages on Mary st. The
contract price for these houses is 85,-
.000. On Agnea st. the frame of tho
Baptist pnrsonage is up, and work is
being pushed ahead rapidly. This
building will cost about 81400. The
Presbyterian manse, also in course of
erection, will cost about 82000. Mr.
Robt. Wiutomute's new residence on
Queen's Avenue is ready for the roof,
and will cost 82000. Mr. McDonald
is building a cottage op Agnes at. near
the hospital, whioh will cost about
•000. Work on tha bell tower is to
begin at once, th* present contract
being between 94000 and 95000. . -Tke
twff' bridgM bn Provost ^t„ ribw In
course of construction, will cost about
91500. A person standing at the corner of Mary and Agnes sts, can see
buildings under construction representing over 810,000. In other parts of
the oity there nro several new buildings
going tip. Mr; Allen Cummings contemplates the erection of an 91800
houBo, and Judge Haynes is figuring
ou two now cottages, Tho new Roman
Catholic church is nearly finished, and
the new Baptist church will Boon be
undor way. Whatever othor places
arc doing, there is plenty evidence of
the fact that New Westminster is
bound to gu, steadily forward. At the
present time we believe there is not a
decent house vacant in the city, and
several uf those now commenced are
already rented.
Is It Murder?
Before the magistrates court yesterday the case uf Charlie Suet, charged
with killing Ah Foong, was heard.
The prinoipal witness iu the casu is Ah
Sing. Mr. Bole appeared for the
crown, and Mr. Atkinson (Corbould,
McColl & Atkinson) for the prisoner.
Ah Sing said he wub working with Suet
and Foong in the camp about 0 miles
below Cook's Ferry. In August, 1883,
Suet wanted to borrow money from
Foong to piny tin-tin; Foong left for
Spence's Bridge to buy pigs, nnd liad
$170 or 8180 un him; Suet went with
him; he took a self-cocking revolver
which I saw him load before starting;
said he was afraid some one might try
to rob them; told me ho once killed a
white butcher in San Francisco with
this revolver; next morning after they
left fer Spence's Bridge, Suet rodo into
camp; he had an Indian horse, und it
was very hot; he came iu a great hurry
and seemed excited; I asked liim whero
Foong was, and he said he had gonu to
Cariboo; Suet then turned round aud
left immediately for Lytton; in 7 or 8
days the dead body of Boeing was found
by some Indians; all his property was
gone; I next saw Suet at Victoria last
September; saw a ring on his linger
which I bought for 83-00; this ring
Foong bought from a China jeweler nt
Yale; was with him when he bought it;
saw the jeweler, Chun Wo, mako the
ring; last time 1 saw it before getting
it from Suet in September it waa on
Foong's finger as he was leaving with
Suet for Spence's Bridge just bofore
he waB killed. The case wna remanded
for 8 days, and we believe application
will be made to have Foong's body
exhumed for examination-

Br a simple system of registered numbers Messrs. Tuckett k Son con tell
which ot their workmen manipulated
any particular plug of their "Myrtle
Navy'1 tobacco, if the caddy which contained it is known. Should any imperfection be found in any plug, therefore,
they can at once single out the work*
mau—from among their ,100 hands—who
is responsible for it, The system works
so thoroughly that the complaints do not
average one for every 200,000 plugs
turned out.
Provincial Asylum.
From the annual report of the medical superintendent (Dr, Bentley) of
tho lunatic asylum at this city, we
learn that during tho year 1885 there
were 21 patients received, a larger
number than ever received in any
year sinco 1870. There wero G discharged, of whom 5 were cured and 1
improved. There were 5 deaths during the year. Dr. Bentley reports
that there are 4 patients remaining
who are so far recovered that they
may be discharged, but it was not
deemed best to send them out tilt
spring, as they had neithor money nor
situations. The net increase in tho
number of patients is 10, and the
number of patients in the institution
at the end of the year was 01. Of the
21 admitted, 18 were males aud 3 females (from whioh it need not be in-
furred that men are more predisposed
to insanity than women); 1 was a
Presbyterian, 2 were Methodists, 4
Episcopalians, 1 Lutheran, 4 Chinese,
and 0 not classified; 3 were married
and 18 single (this should bo an awful
warning to bachelors); 1 came from
Burrard Inlet, 1 from Cariboo, 1 from
Chilliwhack, 1 from Farwell, 0 from
New Westminster, and 11 from Victoria, We always suspected that
lunacy was very generally prevalent in
Viotoria, and the fact that moro thau
half the patients come from that city
tends to confirm the suspicion. The
causes of insanity are givon as follows:
Religious excitement 3, intemperance
4, masturbation 3, money troubles 2,
living alone 1, not known 8. The
average cost per capita per dny has
been 78A cts. The whole oost of the
institution last year was 910,020.89.
The per cent, of cures to admissions
was 28.57, and the per cent, of deaths
to patients treated 0.04. During the
year the patients have been encouraged
to work, and a great deal of useful
work hu been done about tho premises, and tbe effect upon tho henlth
and deportment of the patients has
beon excellent.
ing; but before incurring the expense
of employing a surveyor to take soundings and prepare plans uud specifications, ite-, it was considered advisable
to cull a meeting of the electors und
ascertain their views. Mr. Boyd was
unxious to have a bridge constructed
from Sou island to the mainland und
reminded the meeting thut when the
hon. provincial secretary was present
at thu meeting in this hull lust yenr
the matter was brought up. Since
thnt timo a petition had been circulated and signed by all lhe property-hold
ers on tiie island, with one exception,
asking the local legislature to set apart
u sum of money to assist in building
the bridge. As several of tho holders
of property on Lulu island objected to
the propriety of having u bridge from
Sea island only, tho petition was uot
forwarded to the government, Now
that a scheme was projected tor the
purposo of securing thu construction of
two bridges, and other internal improvements, he was prepared to give
the mutter serious consideration, stating ut the snmo time hu would uut be
backward, if necessary, in giving tangible proof of his sincerity, Mr. Lind-
say considered tliat tho Bchemo whs
pi'oniutui-u; thut the taxes now levied
were quito ns much as the settlement
in its comparative infancy could well
stand nnd strongly objected to going
deeply into debt, for the present at
least, Several others strenuously opposed the borrowing of money to bo
spent in bridges from tho islands to
the mainland. Mr. Brighouse presented to the meeting a well-prepared
map'of tho new city of Vancouver nnd
its surroundings, taking in a portion
of the settlement on the North Arm,
on which wns laid out a proposed extension of Centre street, from the present Bite of Granville, crossing False
creek some distance bolow the present
bridge and thence in a direct line tp
tho proposed bridge from Sea islnnd tu
the mainland, at or near the Methodist church. By this road Granville
enn be reached at a distance of about
4i- or 4J miles. Accompanying this
plan wus a memorandum from M. L,
A. Hamilton, expressing on the part
of tho C. P, R. syndicate their willingness to cut the trees from this line of
road throughout its entire length-- j
most generous offer on the part of thc
railway officials nnd one which should
not be allowed to pass unnoticed. The
facts of the case are simply these: The
counoil cannot*, according to statu,c,
borrow more than §18,000. This
amount would nll be needed for interim! improvements without the bridges.
If the amount of money borrowed
should be put into bridges there would
be no available means of reaching
them, and, consequently, no immediate advantages would bu realized. After thoroughly ventilating tho matter,
iu whioh Mr. Erriiigton. Mr. Kidd,
Mr. Paino and somu others took part,
it was moved by Mr. W. D. Ferris, sr.,
and seconded by Mr. Brighouse, that
this meeting dooms it expedient to
borrow the sum of 818,000 for municipal improvements. On a division of
the house the motion wob declared carried by a very small majority. It was
then moved by Mr. O. D. Sweet, seconded by Mr. H. Boyd, that this
meeting deems it advisable thnt the
municipal council nt its earliest convenience apply io tho locnl legislature
to place a sum of money in the estimates at its present session for the
purpose of Building bridges from Sea
and Lulu islands to tho mainland.
Carried almost unanimously, und the
meeting ndjourned. Thero was u good
attendance nt the meeting, about 40
being present.
Ix t-ioop Repute.—James McMurdoch,
writing from Kinsnlc, says:—"li. B. B,
as a remedy for diseases of the blood,
liver and kidneys, has an excellent reputation iu this locality. I imve used it
mid speak from experience ns well ns
observation. It jb the only medicine I
want, nnd I advise others afflicted to try
it."
Tbe Richmond Loan Meeting.
{Reported for the Columbian.)
Pursuant to notice, a publio meeting
of the electors uf the municipality of
Richmond, called for the purpose of
discussing the propriety of borrowing
money for municipal improvements,
was held in the town hall, North Arm,
on Friday the 20th February. On
motion, M. Clarke, Esq., reeve, was
called to the chair, and O. D. Sweet
was appointed secretary. The chairman briefly stated tho object of the
meeting and then called upon the electors present to express their views on
the subjeot. Mr. W. D. Ferris, sr.,
wu of opinion that the object of tho
meeting as expressed by tho chairman
wu altogether too indefinite. Several
others coincided in the winm npiniou.
The chairman and councillors Kilgour
and Daniels explained to the mooting
that tho council had given tho ''hum
bylaw," for the borrowing of 818,000
for the purpose of building roads and
.bridges and otherwise improving tho
facilities for dyking, draining and travelling in the municipality, a first read-,

would be more serious than the last.

Gads' Ship Railway.
Washington, Feb, 18.—The matter
of Eada' ship railway across tho Isthmus of Tehuantepec was before the
house committee on commerce to-day,
and it seems that Mr. Reagan, Chairman of that committee, is dilligently
engaged in doing all in his power to
further the scheme Two members,
however, Messrs. Crisp of Georgia and
Morrow of California, have been giving Captain Eads no little trouble.
They demanded that (he concession
which Captain Eads claims to have
secured from the Mexican government
for the construction of his ship railway
should be produced beforo the committee for examination. It was produced, together with a printed document purporting to be a translation of
the concession. Senor Romero, the
Mexican minister, was before the committee, and said that while tho two
documents are not exactly alike, they
were substantially the same. The fact
that there were differences between
the original and tho translation induced
Messrs. Crisp and Morrow to insist
that an accurate translation of the concession should be mude before any further consideration of tho project is
had, It has been found by a careful
analysis of the bill, which has been
prepared to cover Eads' scheme, that
the United States will have to assume
obligations to the amount of $37,500,*
000, and that when these obligations
are assumed, the United States has no
jurisdiction whatever over tho ship
railway. Everything is in Mexican
hands, and there is no way that people
having claims against the concern can
sue in any United States court tore-
cover the amount of their claims.

Mr. Grant moved the second reading
f the Dentiatry bill.   Several mem-
ers spoke ou the merits of the bill,
ud after discussion it went into com-
littee.   Tho general opinion seemed
ti bo in favor of the principle of the
rinciplo of the  hill, but it was initiated that amendments would be in-
toduced so as to require, among other
hings, that dentists now in tho prov-
ice must undergo examination.

Mr. Allen's motion to reduce the
Chinese tax from 815 to $5 was discussed, and it was finally decided that

minute was aent to Ottnwa liy the pro-
Chinese Exodus.
About 1 o'clock last Monday morn-
iny a mob of white ruffians wont to the
Chinese quarters of Oregon City, burst
open the doors of the dwellings, pulled
the Chinese out of their bunks, culled
them around, twisted their queues,
robbed them of what money they had
in their pockets, and notified them to
leave forthwith. Having no protection
whatever, the Chinese were forced to
obey. The purser of the steamer Ta-
tona was awakened and asked whether
he would take a cargo to Portland and
how soon he could got ready. He
answered that ho was willing to take a
cargo and that ho could have steam up
in an hour. Nothing wns said about
thc nature of tho "cacao," but in leas
than an hour forty Chinamen came
quietly tu the wharf and stepped on
board the steamer. Not one of the
Chinameii spoke a word, but carried
bis baggage on his shoulder and made
himself as comfortable as possible in
tbe cold. The purser was then asked
bow much he would charge per head
ii bring the Chinamen down to Portland. On naming the amount, the
money, he said, was passed over into
Ins hands without a word. Some one
ou the wharf then sang out, "Cast off
your lines." This was done, and the
Latona steamed away toward Portland.
The passages were no doubt paid out
of the money stolen from the Chinese.

In the near vicinity of a thriving

The committee of council hnve hnd
under consideration tho "Regulations
for the disposa- of Dominion lauds
within the railway belt in the province
of British Columbia," adopted by order-
m-council dated tho 20th April, 1885.
The committee regret to observe
that theso "Regulations," by reason of
cumbersome and vexatious provisions
and excessive imposts, are altogether
unsuited to the wants and conditions
of this province; that they are in somo
respects inconsistent with the spirit, if
not a violation of the loiter, of the
agreement arrived at between tho two
governments, and it ia believed that
any attempt to enforce them would ho
prejudicial to tho best intoreats, if not
dangerous to the peace of the community.
The privilege of homestead entry is
coiditied to Buch lauds as shall have
been surveyed, and the survey thereof
formally confirmed by the department
of tho interior. Thia limitation is calculated to operate prejudicially to settlement, especially in view of the delay which has occurred and, to all appearance, is likely to occur in placing
tlieso lauds in a position to bo home-
steaded conformably with this provision.
It was agreed {inter alia) by the Dominion government that agricultural
lauds within the railway belt in British
Columbia would be thrown open with
alt convenient speed to actual settlers,
at the price of one dollar per acre—an
agreement not qualified by limitation
as to timo or survey. Assuming th At
section 9 provides for regulating the
price of these lands by order-in-council
conformably with said agreement, the
committee would point out the serious
hindrance to settlement caused iu the
past by the uncertainty as to right and
gonditiona of homestead entry—a stale
of things which it is feared will only lie
intensified by the Regulations now
under review.
The exemptions from homoatead
entry in section 13, sub-section 3, aro
of a character to deter the conscientious immigrant of availing himself of
tho so-called privileges thereunder. It
might, indeed, be difficult to tind
quarter-section of which the settlor
could uot be deprived by a riyid application of theae provisions.
The extent of improvements exacted
under section 20, sub-aection 4, is altogether beyond the capacity of a single
settler, especially when it is considered
that much of the land within the railway belt on the Lower Fraser is
heavily timbered and very difficult to
clear.
Section 12 provides that the home-
steading regulations shall not apply to
lauds settled upon after the first day of
July, 1885. Inasmuch as the right of
homestead entry is confined to survey
ed lands, and little or no lands can bo
surveyed before the above-mentioned
date, this regulation would appear
practically to take away with one hand
what it professes to give with the uther
to mock the intending settler. Tliis
unreasonable limitation is, moreover,
a violation of the agreement made botween the two -roveruuients, according
to which agricultural lands within the
railway belt in British Columbia wore
to be open to actual Bottlers at
cue dollar an acre, without limitation aa to time.
Those sections of the Regulations
relating to timber lands ure equally, if
not even more, objectionable. Generally, tho provisions and restrictions are
so cumbersome as to become vexatious,
if not absolutely impracticable, when
applied to the scattered and remote
timber lands of this province.
Wheu it ia considered that our lumbering industry is only in its infancy,
struggling at enormous disadvantage
against the gigantic establishments and
heavy customs tariffs of a powerful
neighbor, it is submitted that to stilt
farther handicap it by imposing the
cumbersome and vexatious regulations
and restrictions already adverted to,
and to add to those the heavy imposts
provided for in sections 44,47, and 03,
would be to paralize, if not absolutely
crush out, this important industry.
Section 27 declares "that no grant
from the Crown of lands in freehold
or for any less estate haa operated, or
will operate, as a conveyance of the
minerals therein, unless the same are
expressly conveyed in such grant."
Crown patents issued in this province for lands within the railway belt!
as elsewhere, have, by intendment of
law, though not "expressly," conveyed
everything on and under the land, except gold and silver; and if the words
above quoted are intended or calculated to -disturb the patentee in the enjoyment of his accustomed rights, or if
they are intended or calculated to interfere with tho acquirement uf similar
rights by settlers within the said belt
who may be entitled hereafter to receive patents from the provincial government, the committee desire respectfully, but most emphatically, to protest against an innovation ao inconsistent with the principles of justice and
constitutional law.
It is respectfully submitted that the
people of llriiish Columbia are the best
judges of what is calculated to promote
internal prosperity and woll-being, and
tlie simple circumstance of their own
legislature, in dealing with the provincial lands, imposing regulations immeasurably loss onerous and charges
less than one-fourth of those under review mny fairly be accepted as a very
conclusive argument in support of the
contention that the Dominion Land
Reglations are illiberal and burdensome.
The committee desire to call special
attention to the following; The effort
of saddling the Dominion timber lands
with regulations ao much more onerous, and imposts so very much heavier
than those imposed upon contiguous
provincial timber lands, must obviously
be to confine lumbering operations
almost entirely to the latter, wiih the
atill moro serious result of the destruction of the former by fire as settlement
penetrates the forest. Thus not only
would an important industry be seriously crippled meanwhile, and federal
and provincial revenue thereby depleted, but enormous forest wealth would
bo completely destroyed.
The committee most respectfully
submit that the true interests nf the
country, both Dominion and provincial,'would be best promoted by hnving the lands within the railway belt
administered on terms similar or approximating to thoso governing contiguous provincial lands.
