The pope, in receiving a few days

admired, but seeing the price on the

was on the man of the house.

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
THEY WANT DILKE.
London, Jan. 4.—A rumor ia boinij
persisttmtly circulated here that the
Glndstoman managers are determined
to find a Beat in the House of Commons for Sir Charles Dilke, taking advantage of tlie absence of Mr. Gladstone to accomplish their purpose in
order that ro responsibility for the
movement shall attach, itself to him.
It is asserted by many liberal members that tho presence in parliament
of Sir Clmrlea Dilkc is really nece«-
Bury at this time in view of tbe proposed further extension of the franchise in the counties, upon which
Buhject Sir Charles is presumably
butter infiTiiied than any other Eng-
glisti politician, lt is, however, not
alone because of his value as a specialist in this particular matter that
the Chelsea statesman's presence in
the house is desired. Few men in
England are able to cope with him in
debute, and still fewer are ns thoroughly equipped with valuable information
and telling points on the Irish question, and had everything gone well
with him, and he had retained his seat
in parliament, it is quite possible that
tbe present phase of the Irish situation would havo been avertod.
THE FISHERIES COMMISSION.
Washington, Jan, 4.—Thy meeting
of the representatives of the United
States and the British Governments
appointed to consider the fishery question, which wus tu have been held at
the State Department to-day, has been
postponed until the 7th inst.
RELEASED FROM   JAIL.
London, Jan. 4.—Mr. Edward Harrington, M. P., and tho editor of the
Tralee Sentinel, was released from
prison to-day, having completed his
term of one month's incarceration for
publishing reports of the meetings of
suppressed League branches. His
release was made the • occasion of a
grand demonstration by the residents
of Tralee, and Mr. Harrington was
treated ■ to an ovation surpassing'tn
enthusiasm arythins in his experience.
Mr. Hrrringtun, in roply to numerous
complimentary speeches, addressed his
townsmen in a strain similiar to that
in which lie declared to the court on
tho occasion of hiB conviction tbat he
would make no promises to refrain
from repeating his offence, but would
ever do whnt seemed to him beBt for
the cause of free speech, a free press,
and free men.
A   RUSSIAN SURPLUS.
St. Petersburg, J«n. 4.—Tho Finnish I)iot, which will meet to-morrow,
will vote for supplies for reinforcing
the troops uud tho building of forts on
tho coast.
Tho surplus of the new finance min
iater's budget is estimated at several
million pounds. This is partly due to
a decrease in iho military estimates.
Tho minister, in his reports to the czar,
emphasizes tho necessity of preserving
the peace for tho purpuse of developing the resources of the conntry. The
object of tho budget appears to be to
create a good impression nbroad.
THIS  AFTERNOON'S DESPATCHES,
A CfAL FAMINE IN TROSPECT.
Philadelphia, Jan. 5.—It ia stated
to-day that unless matters mend early
all coal dealers will be entirely out of
stock by Saturday. Ashbridge & Co.
assert thnt the leading Railroad Co.
has diverted a quantity of their coal
for u.-e in the railroad engines. Another dealer reports he lost ten carloads
in the sumo manner. The company
has mado no denial and has notified tho
dealers it will pay for all taken.
HEAVY LIABILITIES.
Paris, Jan. 5.—Tho firm whose
failure agitated thebourso is estimated
to hnvo liabilities to tho amount of
o,000,000f. Oilier failures are expected.
REPUBLICAN***  AHEAD.
Paris, Jan. 6.—In tho senatorial
elections to-day, the result ns far as
heard from is in favor of the republicans.
REFUSED TO SELL TI1EIU WARES.
Dublin, Jan. 5.—At Kauturk three
prominent members of the local branch
of tho national leai;iio have boen convicted, under the crimes act, of boycotting, and wero sentenced to six
months imprisonment. They refused
to servo Mr. Lader, the landlord, with
pro visions.
PROSPECTS FOR PEACE STRENGTHENINO.
Paris, Jim 5.—The buurso to-day
was shaken by tho announcement of
tho suspension of a largo rpucul-itor iu
mining shares, but all kinds uf govornment securities, Russian and others
nro firm in viow of tho constantly
strengthening reaction iu favor of
peace. Reports from Vienna and
Berlin indic.ito sit infiuoncosaro working vigorously towards that end.
Germany's position.
Berlin, Jan. 5,—In an interview
with Counselor VonT.rdenburg, Gorman consul, nt Paris, the visitor said
ho hnd called to cxpross his fears for
tho German business people of tlio
immediate future After listening
rather impatiently to what hia visitor
had to any tho Chnncellor remarked:
■'Will people nover stop bothering mo
about the attitude of France nnd
French preparatiotiB; Germany ia
stronger than Franco nnd wo hnvo
nothing to fonr except nn unforeseen
nnd unjust attack from  nny quarter.
Even then Germany is strong enough
to rosist the simultaneous attack of
two or for that matter three powers."
The Chancellor smiling added, "the
best guarantee of peace is the bad
powder used for the Lebel riflei."
THE WRECKED VESSEL.
London, Jan. 5.—It is now known
definitely that the vessel wrecked near
Wnterford, Ireland, was the American
ship Fred. D. Snow, Capt. Wille?*,
which left San Francisco on August
3lst for Liverpool.
Latest Canadian News.
Toronto, Dec. 31.—The actual sum
now subscribed to tbe Queen's college
endowment is $230,000.
W. Selby, late of the firm of Selby
A Co., wholesale paper, waa arrested
yesterday evening, charged with forging a note on Taylor Bros, for $3,000.
Montreal,' Dec. 31.—Schleisinger,
the absconding manager of ' Moss A
Co., New York, accused of embezzling
$U0,00O, is staying at a leading hotel
hore.
The report of the fire brigade for
the past year shows that Uie brigade
was called out 483 times, and 368
actual fires occurred. The total lost
was something enormous.
Ottawa, Dec. 31.—Premier Mercier
has intimated to the Ottawa county
Liebrala that he will establish an asylum for Protestant insane at Aylraer,
when the county buildings are removed thence to Hull.
It is understood the date of the
opening of parliament is postponed
from January 31 to February 23. The
previous date was chosen because of
the seeming hopelessness, at the time,
of any settlement being reached in the
fishery dispute. During Chamberlain's
stay here fresh proposals were submitted to the American fishery commissioners, and this bas improved
matters so much that a cabinet minister expresses the belief that a settlement will be reached before parliament meets.
Winnipeg, Dec. 31.—It is understood thnt a bill will be introduced in
tbe legislature, when it meets, to create
Hon. Mr. Norquay a lawyer. The
bill will provide for the passing of a
certain examination before the ex-
Premier iB awarded the gown. It is
more than likely that the bill will receive the unanimous sanction of the
house.

Tho summary oi local improvements wbirrli appeared in the Columbian ycdtertln)' must lie very
satisfactory to all our citizens. Tho
total sum iixptniilecl is about $218,-
000. For the year 1880 it was estimated that tlie improvements
reached a total of 6250,000. But
iu that were included 840,000 for
railway works and.$65^000 for gas
works. In the statement for 1..str
year there are no similar items.
With a few unimportant exceptions,
all the improvements of the year
are the result of private enterprise.
Comparing Westminster witlr Vancouver or Victoria, it will he seen
that both these cities show a larger
sum spent in buildings. But there
are certain circumstances whieh
ought to ho considered in such a
comparison. Victoria's population
is at least three times the population
of Westminster, nnd ninny of hor
people are very wealthy. An increase proportioned to the circumstances would give Victoria nearly
8700,000 for improvements instead
of $318,000. Vancouver's population is not much greater than that
of Westminster; but at the beginning of the year Vancouver was a
very small place, with very few substantial buildings. It was a new
eity and had to be built. Besides, a
large part of the improvements
there were made by tho railway
company and the gas company.
The expenditure of theso two companies would roach nearly 6500,000
alone. When these facts are considered, it will be admitted that, under the circumstances, the progress
of Westminster during the year has
boen most satisfactory.
Our cotemporary of tho Victoria
Times rejoices exceedingly over the
election of Mr. Humphreys for Comox. It congratulates tho electors
and the country and itself with
gushing enthusiasm. Putting aside
altogether the question of party, we
are sure our cotemporary cannot
honestly say that the occasion is one
that calls for such congratulations.
It is sufficiently evident that Mr.
Humphreys is not a man that will
bring to the house with him any
quality tending to elevate the tone
of it or increase public confidence in
its enactments, and our cotemporary
must be fully cognisant of this fact.
The Columbian counselled the peo
pie of Comox to reject him, not because he came to them as an opposition candidate, but because it believed him to be unworthy of their
confidence and respect. His past
political record has not been such as
to merit approval, and ho ono will
put him forward ns an example
which others could safely follow. It
' may be said that his opponent -was
no better. Perhaps not; hut can it
be possible that there was not to be
found in Comox a man worthy of
the honor of being its representative! If there is not, Comox do-
serves to be disfranchised until it is
able to produce within itself a
worthy member, and has developed
correct principle enough to make
certain tho rejection of political
lucks who ought nover to be entrusted with power. We aro very
much afraid the Times is influenced
by party inspiration when it speaks
of congratulations in connection
with Comox. When a newspaper
puts party beforo the public interest it ceases to bo a public organ aud
loses its claim to public confidence
and support. If the people cf Comox had elected an opposition representative, we should have no
word of censure, provided the member chosen was worthy of the honor.
The Victoria Times says it is
rumored that Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir
will bring nn action against tho
Vancouver News claiming twenty or
twenty-five thousand dollars for
libel. The Times expresses the wish
that tho rumor may not be true, and
we join in the wish. The article in
the News, to which exception has
been taken, was certainly not at all
creditable to that paper. Taking
for its toxt a report which appeared
in an American newspaper, it proceeded to denounce him in terms
which the circumstances could not
justify or excuse. The report
proves to hove been a complete misrepresentation of the hon. gentleman's utterances, as any one might
h&Vo expected. But we do not think
Mr. Dunsmuir will gain anything
by putting the matter into court.
No one, we are sure, will doubt his
explicit denial which appeared in
the Times, for no one would suspect
' hint of entertaining sentiments such
as were put into his mouth by tho
Portland interviewer. It is important that the character and reputation ol public men should be carefully guarded by law, but it is also
important that the freedom of tho
prau should be preserved. We
think the libel business in this
oountry has been carried just a little
too far. When a newspaper inadvertently makes a mistake, and is
willing to acknowledge it upon discovering the facts, it ought not to be
brought into court. When there is
an intention to do an injury  it  is
5|uite proper that punishment should
ollow, A man occupying a public
position would be showing wisdom
by refraining from taking aotion
■gainst a newspaper for libel unless
the provocation is very great. In the
case of Mr. Dunsmuir, Hie News
published his denial us it appeared
in tlie Times. It should now be
given an opportunity to make an
apology. If it accepts the oiler, wo
think the matter ought not to proceed further: if it refuses, the ease
will present quifo a different aspect.

Kew Year's Calls.
Wo are sorry to notice the delightful
ol l-tirno custom of "receiving" on Now
Year's Day is gradually dying out. Perhaps, though, this is only a' temporary
freak of fashion, and New Year's calls
will again be as popular and universal us
in tho early days of New York. There
are, however, somo families who still
cling to keeping "open house" on tho
first day of tho year, and giving a cordial
welcome and dispensing hospitality to
their friends. AVo are glad to Beo this.
There is nothing pleasanter than friendly
Interchange between neighbors and
friends, und to most men, who are busy
nnd hurried all the rest of the three
hundred and sixty-four days ofthe year,
Kew Year's day is tho only one which
they can devote to keeping up their
friendly intercourse with old acquaintances and neighbors. We would urge
our fri.nds to take somo trouble in this
direction, and establish this habit of thus
greeting their friends, and creating many
plousaut associations. We have hoard it
remarked that one reason for abiindoitiii't
"reooiving calls" was the trouble mil
groat ouilay of expense necessary. This
is a mistake, for in most of the horrses
that still receive we find, instead of Iho
largo tablo of "yo olden time," groaning
beneath its weight of eatables, both digestible and indigestible, ita load of ornamental confectionery, and its decanters
of wine, a modest Biddable spread with
an abundant supply of wholesome food
nn 1 dainties, and upon few of which is
seen the decanter and wine-glass. This
departure from tho old habit we greet
with joy. We give below s simple
menu for the New Year's table, which we
think will be found satisfactory to both
the hostess and guests,nnd require but
little expense: Pickled oysters, tongue
and chicken sandwiches, roast turkey,
cranberry sauce, coffee and fruit. Lemonade, fancy cake and cream.
WaiMnftos'i New Tear's Call..
Whon the first President, George Washington, and his wife received their friends
in New York on New Year'a Day, 1700,
the annals of the city preserved the following account of it:
"Goneral Washington In the first year
of his Presidency under the new Constitution, resided in the Franklin house,
at the head of Cherry street. On New
Year's day, 1790, he was waited upon by
the principal gentlemen of the city. After
being severally introduced, and paying
the usual compliments of tho season, the
citizens mutually exchanged their kind
greetings, and withdrew, highly gratified
by thu friendly notice ol the President
to the most of whom ho was personally a
stranger.
"In the evening, Mrs. Washington held
aloveo. It was about full moon, and the
air was so bland and serene that the
ladles attended in their light Summer
shades. They were introduced by the
air Is and gentlemen in waiting, and, after
being seated, tea, coffee, plain and plum
cake were handed round. Familiar and
fiio ally conversation ensued, and kind
Inquiries, on tho part of Mrs, Washing-
to >, alter the families of the exiles with
whom she had been acquainted during
tho lii'volulUm. To a lady standing at
tire sjilu of the President, she remarked,
'Oi all tho incidents of the day, none has
so pleased the General as the friendly
greetings of the gentlemen who visited
hi ii nt noon.'
"lo the Inquiry of the President
whether it was casual or customary, he
wus assured that it was an annual custom,
derived from their Dutch fore-fathers,
whieh had always been commemorated.
Aft r a short pause, he observed, 'The
highly-favored situation of New York
will, III processof years, gradually changf
lis arciont customs and manners; but
lut whatever changes take place, nevei
forget tbe cordial, cheerful observance oi
New. Year's Day I"       * -.««,.

Knrrcl-i ol E'llfrtlcs.
Sevoral years ago, in one of the beautiful towns that gem the shores of lire Hudson Rivor, a company of ladies mot together weekly to try to do Eouiothiiig to
aid tbo missionary laborers in a far-off
field.
It was decided to prepare basted patchwork for tbe littlo brown liands of tlioso
who were witlinr- to como and listen to
tlie leaching of kind ladiea, whoso aim it
was to train the mind und heart wbilo
teaching tiro lingers io bo useful.
The dibit was by sonic thought chimerical rnrd absurd; llrey would not even
bo at tho troubleof bestowing an oflbrin"
from their piece-hags. Hut. liotwil liMaiid-
ing ridicule ami opposition, in due thnt'
llirco barrels full of basted patchwork
wore prepared and tiro novel freight
started on ita journey half round tiro
world.
Tire aflirir was almost lorgolfon, when
a letter came iu which occurred tho following:—
"Your wonderful gift of patchwork was
n grout help and has done lota of good.
Wc are jui-t finishing some quills for our
boarding school. We mndo eight baby
quills, ami tiro proud mothers aro ever
so -happy ovor thorn. Ami what do voir
think! sruno of Iho patches wero made
into bapjismni robe;;, and wero used by
some of our girls at onr recent baptism.
I have also filter! out I Irrce young women,
who were married, wilh a quilt of this
American cloth."
One can scarcely imagine a smaller offering to aid Iho missionary cause, anil
yet it has produced an eli'ect stronger
than of "cannon balls ou castle walls.'"—
holding and strengthening instead of
wasting and destroying.
Fidelity lo Conscience.
An esteemed clerk in a bank in *New
York.was requested by tire President of
the bank on Saturday'afternoon Income
tb the bank tho next ilav anil help briri"
up Iho back work, lie declined. Tire
President insisted and he still declined.
Tho President threatened lo discharge
him unless ho would perform tho work
required of trim on a Sibhaih, lie still
declined and was discharged, wilh no
prospect of further employment, but with
un approving conscience. Soon after, rr
new bank was organized, and a trustv
man was Bought for cashier. Tho President who discharged this clerk was inquired of, and ho mentioned this young
man and llio circumslanccs of bis discharge Ho was immediately chosen
cashier, thus securing a higher ofllco nnii
a larger salary. A consistent, conscientious Christian lifo commends itself lo
every man's conscience in t lie sight of Ood.
' A Nltfiiltieimt Nervlcc.
Tbo Rev. O.K. Hcrrick, Chaplain at
Fortress Monroe, sends us an account of
a service which was recently held in St.
John's Church, Hampton, Virginia. "Iu
tho same parish," he says, "in which tho
first Indian child was'baptized on Ibis
continent, there was a service hold, March
2'trd last, in which tho Bishop who olli-
ciated wus a decendant of Pocahontas; in
llio choir wero three Indian young men ;
and in llie class that was confirmed wero
four Indian youths from Dakota. Tho
Church of St. John, Hampton, Viiginia,
is in Ihe place where the lirst settlers in
Virginia lirst met Iho Indians. Tlio walls
of llio present church wero built in 1058.
I was Impressed by tho I nought that tho
Indians, who have been crowded West
by the whito man's civilization, had come
back to their own village 'Kitchen' to re-
ceivo their confirmation by tlio hands of
n descendant of Pocahontas."
Tlie Monk's vision.
Thero is a striking legend Illustrating
tho blessedness of performing our duty at
whatever cost to our own incliualinn. A
monk, whilst rending and meditating
upon the Scriptures, had seen a beautiful
vision of our Snviour, und in silent bliss
be was gazing upon it. Tho hour arrived
nt which it was Ids duty to feed lire poor
at tho convent-gate. Ho would fain hnvo
lingered in his cell transported with joy
at tho vision; but, undor it 6onso of duty,
bo toro himself away from it to perforin
his humble service' When ho returned
lie found the blessed vision still wailing
for him, and heard a voico, saving,
"Hadst thon stayed, I would have gone.
As thou host gone, I have remained."
Christianity nntl Itcscurch.
Christianity docs not impose limits to
human research, nor discredit the scsuhs
of it. On tbe contrary, it stimulates Hint
research, and adds to the dignity and
value of tlioso results. The eli'ect of lire
discovery that man is nn immortal being
is not to dwarf, but to magnify, iho interest of his earthly surroundings.
Tho discovery of God beyond Nnluro
enhances tho glory of God in Nnluro;
and tbe stimulus that religion lias given
to tlio exorciso of tho faculties is far
greater than nny bonunibiug Influence
tbat a mistaken viow of it may sometimes
havo produced.

Since the article on the second pago
was printed, the Colonist comes to

Mr. Dunsmuir has really entered an
action against the ATe*rs fur libel, claim*
ing 825,000 damages.
The sidewalks in many parts of the
eity are in a very dangerous and slippery condition. It would well for
householders to sprinkle a coating of
ashes on the sidewalks opposite their
houses and thus make tho footing
secure.
A sidewalk has been finally laid opposite the Hambly building on Front
street. The grade is several inches
higher than that opposite the huilings
on either side; tlie sidewalks opposite
these buildings should be raised accordingly.
Health is impossible when the blond is

Wilson Bros., of the Vancouver
Foundry, Victoria, have made an assignment. The company did quite a

McCorvie are well and favorably

This establishment 1ms been fitted up
by Joo Qui (for many years employed
in Mr. Dickinson's butcher shop), and
wo are quite sure all who entrust thoir

The real Trade.
The product of the coal mines at
Nanaimo and Wellington fur 1887 has
been tho largest on rect.rd, llio total
being placed 453,509 tone. Of this,
353,6lil» tons were exported. The
valuo of the output is estimated at
§1,587,401. The quantity exported
last year oxceeded that of 1880 by
104,304 tons, and greater than thnt of
any previous year by 47,001 tons.
The serious explosion which occurred
in one of the mines last summer interfered greatly with the operations of
the company, and made the output
considerably less than it wonld otherwise have been. Thia year the output
of last year promises to bo exceeded
by a large amount. The demand for
Wellington coal goes on steadily increasing. No coal on tho Pacific
coast can compare with it, and tho
supply ia sufficient for the needs of
many generations.
Afraid or tier Shadow.
There were n few pieces of thin ice
drifting about the river to-day, but
nothing at all to interrupt navigation.
Tho littlo ferry boat K. do K kept
plying between this city and the other
side of tho river all day, and found no
obstacle in tho way of her movements.
Notwithstanding this, the subsidised
mail steamer from Victoria passed by
tho rivor and went to Burrard Inlet,
whence passengers, mails and freight
fur this city had to bo forwarded by other conveyances. It
is the old story, repeated every season,
and which will continue tnbe repeated
until tho people of this city show spirit
enough to run a steamer of tlieir own.
Tho city council is making arrangements U' charter a steamer to keep tho
river open in the event of ita freezing;
bnt of what use are these preparations
if the mail steamers are permitted . 1,0

A Good Xniiilu'i'.
Yesterday we published a statement
showing tho extent of building operations carried on in this city during tho
past year. To-day wo present statistics relating to fisheries, coal mines,
and some other provincial productions,
which will be read with much interest,
From day to day this week we shall I
continue the publication of statistics
relating to the inanufa'ctuies and other
resources of tho city and province.
AU these statistics will appear togother
in the next is-uio of ihe Weekly Columbian, whioh will be ready next
Wednesday morning, and may be bad
at 10 ets, per single copy either at this
otlico or at tho bo-ikf-tores. A number
of extra codicj of thia edition are being
printed, and it will bo the correct
thing to send away to friends at a distance. Persons who wish extra copies
should leave their orders at this ollicu
before Saturday if possible. Lots of
more than 10 will be supplied at a
slight reduction.
