current Events and Opinions.
Confessedly the present time is
one of spucial trial and privation
to multitudes in London and over
, the whole of the United Kingdom,
Is this a season when those who
are well oft" should Haunt their folly
ami finery iu the face of looped
and ragged wretchedness! To this
pass apparently tho London "golden
youth," under tho leadership of the
Prince of Wales, if cablegrams are
to he believed, havo come or nre
fast coining. Their "high jinks"
with salacious theatricals beginning
ut midnight on Saturday may have
different results from these reckoned
upnn, Tlie first rumblings of the
social storm have already been
heard, and ara theso gay gallants
ijiiite snw that these unspeakably
foolish and defiant tantrums may
not precipitate tlio genuine outburst
of the tempest? The young fools
of France some hundred yenrs ago
were equally self-indulgent, equally
extravagant, nud equally reckless.
The upshot of the whole afl'air, howover, witli them was decidedly awkward. Are the fools of to-day any
wiser or any mora certain that the
result iu this case will be different
and better, It may perhaps, and
we hope it will. But if so, no
thanks to the promoters of "high
jinks" or to the heroes of such
scandals as that of Dilke, which
unfortunately are too common
among tho "botter" and more self-
indulgent classes everywhere. —

NUMBER 21
Two Suecchcs.
BV THE HONORABLE PROVINCIAL SECRETARY
Speaking to tt motion calling for
a return showing wlmt triinsttotions
had taken place between the government and Messrs. Galbraith,
(.irant and MoLoese, tho Hon. Jno.
llnUon Hnirl (wu quote from the
Colonist) ho would support the resolution upon general principles and
justico. Tho leader of tho opposition hod tuken up the—he would
uot say contemptible, but certainly
extraordinary role of "informer" upon follow-mcmbers. Tlie act provided that tho pecuniary penalty
goes to tho "informer," and it could
never hnvo boon contemplated that
suclt a disreputable business would
bo taken up by a member of tho
house. Hu wns not aware of any
member of any parliament in any
civilized country ever having undertaken sueh work. Howover, the
leader of the opposition had done
so; and, having singled out the honorable member for Now Westminster, it was a simple act of justice
to include other and, porhaps, more
deeply implicated members on' the
other side of thc house. He woultl
take tlio preseut opportunity of
pointing out tho injustice done to
the honorable member for New
Westminster by the return sent
down to the house. Taktf,"ifor instance, the "nxe-handle" of which
tlio opposition orgaus wero mnking
such a hmttlk. According to tho
returns it would appear as if tho
government had paid tho firm §1
for a single axe-handle. Uut referring to that item in the "public ac-
counts," it appears as "axe-handle,
etc." Going to the fountain head,
howevor, and referring to tho original voucher, it wns found that the
item was "nxe-handlcs, etc." It
would thus bo seen that there wns
not the slightest ground for the suggestion of an overcharge, and, therefore, the opposition cry about the
govornment having corruptly bribed
the members by paying one dollar
for an "axe-handle" fell, like most
of their cries, flat. But thore was
unother feature of tho case, which
applied not only to the "axe-handle"
but to all the supplies to schools
embraced in the roturu, and more
or less to all the other transactions
therein referred to. Hon. gentlemen were awaro that an allowance
of 840 was mado to every rural
school for "contingencies," aud that
this money was disbursed by the
trustees of tho respective schools,
and vouched for by thom. The
transactions now under consideration were under this head; and not
only had the government nothing to
do witli theso purchusos, but he felt
quite sure that if they ventured to
suggest or dictate to trustees as to
where they should buy their "axe-
handles," thoy would got a vory
short answer. All they had to do
with the matter wns to pay tho
vouchers and take care thnt the
rote for contingencies wns not exceeded. It would be seen, therefore, that, as a matter of fact, the
government had no more to do with
these supplies being obtained from
the firm of Cunningham le Oo. than
the leader of tho opposition had, and
the same thing applied to a certain
extent to the other supplies which
were under the management of a
cot imittee of citizens, and with the
procurement of which, or the deciding whore they were to be purchased,
the government hnd nothing whatever to do. He considered it due
to tho member for New Westminster, and to the government, to make
theso statements, and honorable
members and the public would now
see the emptiness of the "axe-handle"
ory.
Speaking on the question of railway lands and the rights of squatters, tlie Colonist reports Hon, Mr.
Robson to hare said: I was struck
with the contrast presented between
the last speaker (Mr, Semlin) and1
his leader. The former took occasion to compliment me upon the
resolution. The latter did the very
opposite. But the object of the
hon. gentleman in complimenting
in this instance appears to be to
contrast my conduct towards certain so called squatters at False
Oreek a year ago. He also referred
to another set of squatters on crown
lauds . immediately west of Fort
Moody, which he asserts were, like
the others, induced by government
pamphlets to come to the province,
and who are now being badly used
by the government "I am in a
position to inform the hon. member
that lie is mistaken. There are
only two so-called squatters, and
they are not near Port Moody, but
in the vicinity of False Oreek. One
of them is a clergyman, who has
been many years in the country,
long before the present government
came into power; the other hu
been somo twenty-five yoars in the
country, and therefore neither of
them could have been influenced
by pamphlets referred to in coming
to the province. Theso two squatters have not yot had whatever
claims they imagine themselves to
possess 'lealt with at all. It is,
therefore, premature for the honorable gentleman to assert that they
have been badly treated. The hon
orable gentleman refers to certain
evidence given in court, and suggests that in making a personal
statement a year ago, to the effect
that I did not own in the "Hastings
Mill purchase," I must have stated
what wns not accurate, I am not
responsible for the evidence referred
to uny moro thnn I would vouch
for the accuracy of the newspaper
reprint of it; but this I do know,
and stand prepared to prove, if
necessary, that I do not now and
nover did own in the property referred to. Now, to revert to the
subject of the False Oreek squatters, which occupied so much of the
time of tho horse last year, and
which every honorable member on
tho opposition benches hus had the
indiscretion to taunt the govern*
ment with in the course of this debate, I must express surprise that
my honorable friend (the member
for Yale) and somo' of tho other
honorable members who sit and voto
with him, should have dared to
taunt the government with having
ucted unfairly towards what he
calls squatters, but who, in reality
wero conspirators.. I am not so
much surprised nt the leader of the
opposition, ns he had not the same
opportunities of ascertaining the
true inwardness of that.conspiracy.
If it were necessary I could enlighten him. "I could a tale unfold" which would cause my honorable friend's "knotted and combined
locks to part, and each particular
hnir to stand on end liko quills upon
the fretful porcupine." (Laughter.)
I may, howevor, be permitted to
state tv few facts connected with
that conspiracy. Six claims, aggregating 9(10 acres, were covered by
tho conspiracy, and they themselves
estimated them at half a million.
To show how thoroughly conscious
these conspirators were of the badness of their claim to these lands,
I am in a position to state, Mr.
Speaker, that before last session,
before over their case had come before the house, four-fifths of the
property, four-fifths of property
valued ut half a million, was actually offered as a gift in order to get
a titlo 1 Not only were these oflers
mado in writting before the legislature met, but tliese conspirators
subsequently invaded this house,
and even entered the sacred precincts of the commit'e room I But
to the credit of tho members of the
houso be it said, when the vote
oame to bo taken more than two to
one stood by the government in
their determination to resist a bold
attempt to commit a great wrong
upon the people I It was, I repeat,
most creditable to the house that
honorable members had proved
themselves capable of resisting the
dazzling bait of half a million that
had been temptingly dangled beforo
their oyes. It is under these circumstances and in view of these
and other facts whicli might he
stated, that I contend the opposition, instead of taunting the government, ought to stand up and
compliment it for having guarded
the publie interests against such a
desperate conspiracy.

A New Move.
It seeiuS tliat Nevada lias Ijeon
chosen as tho future Mormon head-
tliinrters. Halt Lake is too hot for
tlie polygamists sinee the federal
government seriously undertook to
deprive them of tho liberty of having as many wives as they chose.
For years the church authorities
fought the civil power in the hope,
apparently, that either triumph or
compromise would he obtained. But
this hope no longer exists; and as
tho territory of Utah is directly
under federal nd ministration, it has
heen decided that the best policy
of the church is to emigrate into
some small state the control of
whose institutions it may be possiblo
to secure. Nevada is such a stato.
Its population, at no Lime large, is
said to have been actually decreasing during late years, and its voting
power is less than 15,000. If Mormons enough could be planted in
Nevada to hold u majority of the
votes, the laws would be speedily
adjusted so as to shield the peculiar
practices of tho Mormon church.
In such an event the problem of
the suppression of polygamy might
be considerably complicated, and
possibly the day would be materially postponed when the United
States could declare itself freed
from this great national curse.
■Vt FROM AU PARTS OF THE WM10.
Luxdox, Mnrcli H. — Advices from
Aiinam state tlmt anarchy prevails in
tlmt country; that ban-In of robbers nre
acouring the land; that people are in
revolt against French authority, nml
that the rebelB Imve attacked the French
near Hue, the capital, ami advanced in
imberB upon Quintone.
LONUON, March Oi—In the house of
commons this evening Mr. Delwiu (Lib-
.1) moved to disestablish the church of
Wales. Mr. dray (Liberal) moved to
reform instead of disestablish. Hon.
Win. Harcourt, chancellor of the cxehe-
3ner, contended the questions of the
isestalilialimciit of the Welch and English churches wero involved nud inseparable. Mr. (irny's amendment- was first
adopted by a vote of 241 to 22!), and
then as the substitute for Mr. Dalwin's
motion was rejected bv a vote of 240 to
241). In the first division the minority,
consisting of Liberals and Parnellites.
Uft the house in a body. Messrs. Gladstone, Chamberlain, Morley and Travel-
yon abstained from voting.
Ottawa, March 2.—In the house of
commons, yesterday, the Riel question
gave rise to a short but sharp discussion,
Mr. Cottrsol asked if the government
had appointed ii mcdicul commission to
examine Riel. Sir John said yes, and
promised the report. Measrs. Cameron
and Blake asserted that the government
had not printed an accurate report of
the Riel trial. Mr. Chapleau and Sir
John stated tliat the lull evidence had
been published, only the counsel's addresses having been omitted, Mr, Cameron moved for the short-hand notes of
thc trial, whicli will be brought down.
Notices of motion have nlso been given
by Mr. Laurier for all Riel's papers in
possession of the government, and nf
Amoyt for all documents regarding tlio
Riel trial, lt is evident that Kiel will
be a staple this season. In reply to Mr.
Cartwright the minister of finance stated
the gross debt of the Dominion the 1st
of March was '$281,314,532.49.
London, March 8.*-Louisa Hart, a
rich procuress of the West End, was today committed for trial on a charge of
providing young girls for a number of
aristocratic patrons. The woman's business had grown ao bold aud offensive thnt
tlie police felt constrained to suppress it,
but despite their best efforts they were
unable, till recently, to secure evidence
that would convict. The arrest of Mrs.
Hart has created a sensation in certain
circles, and gossip has bandied nbout tlie
names of titled debauchees as likely to
be identified with thc business by which
this woman has grown rich.
Are You Registered?
For some time copies of the now
voters' lists prepared by the revising barrister have been posted up
at various public places where they
may be examined.    These lists are
the first draft, and  will probably
not contain nearly ull the names of
persons entitled to voto undor the
act, as the materials out of which
lhey had to be compiled were very
imperfect   It is desirable, and we
ure sure it is the wish of the revising barrister, that these lists should
lie   as   complete as possible whon
linally confirmed, and to this end it
is  to be hoped every  elector will
make it his business to examine tlie
lists   carefully   and  take stops to
rectify any errors he may discover.
The notice published in The Columiuan Uy Mr. McColl, of this city,
revising barrister for the district of
New Westminster, points out clearly enough tho steps necessary for
making additions to or corrections
in  tho list.     Application must be
made iu writing on or before the
:ii)tli inst.    This application must
state. the names of the persons to
be added or struck  off, with the
address aud nil particulars necessary to an intelligent understanding
of the cuse.    If tlie application is
sent  by   mail, it is   to   be regis
terod, and   if   it   is intended  to
remove    a    name   from   tho   Ust,
notice  must bo sent to the person
whose name it is proposed to remove.    Tho form of application will
be found in tlie nut, bub in order to
facilitate matters a number of blank
forms havo been printed and placed
on  salo at tho hook stores in this
city, where they may be obtained.
Having pointed out the steps necessary for correcting tlie list, it remains only to state who are eligible
lo be registered  us voters.    First,
all   persons   who  are registered us
voters under lhe provincial acts ure
eligible for registration under the
Dominion act.    If not a provincial
voter he may qualify on any of the
following grounds;   (I) Owner of
property worth S.'IOO in cities, #200
in  towns, §150 elsewhere^ (2) having an income of 8300 a year; (3)
sons of farmers in rural districts;
(4) sons of persons owning and occupying real estate in cities and towns
(5) tenants of any real property
who have paid one year's rent at 82
a month, $G u quarter, 812 for 6 mos,
or $20 a year; (G) tenants routing
any property assessed high enough
to qualify owner as voter; (7) fisherman owning land or personal
property valued nt #150. lt will
lie seen that the qualification is very
broad, and thero will bo very few
people in British Oolumbia who cannot qualify under some of the heads
mentioned. Let the additions and
amendments be sent in without delay. ^__pMM—

Peter Kieffer, Buffalo, says: "I was
badly bitten by a horse a few days ago,
and was induced by a friend, who witnessed the occurrence, to try Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil. It relieved tbe pain
almost immediately, aud in four days
the -wound was completely healed. Nothing can be better for 1'resh wounds." See
that you get tiie genuine Dr. Thomas'
Eclectrie Oil, as there are imitations on
the market.

IsTKjiKBTJsu Statistics.—It is not
often that one finds much of interest
in a blue book. In the report of the
minister of publio worka for last year,
however, n departure seems to havo'
been made which gives this book more
than common public interest, Besides
tables showing the length of .the
various commercial routes between
Liverpool and Yokohama, there are
tables giving the population and areas
uf different countries in accordance
with latest return*. From these we
learn that the population of the world
is 1,460,160,000, divided as follows:
Asia, 444,000,000; Europe, 320,000,-
000; Africa, 139,000,000; America,
100,000,000; Australasia, 3,000,000:
Polynesia, 30,000,000; various, 5,150,-
000, The most populous empires are
as follows: Chinese Empire, 435,000,-
000; British Empire,305,292,872; Russian Empire, 100,038,342; Turkiih

Penitentiaries.--In a Domini g
blue book the minister of justice gives
statistics of Canadian penitentiaries
for the .'..cnl year ending SOth June
last. In tho British Columbia penitentiary at this city there were 93 convicts at the beginning of the year, 29
were received, 22 were discharged, 4
died, and 90 remained at the close of
tho year. During tho year 32 new
cells were added, but only 3 uf these
remained vacant. The expenses of the
institution for the year were $27,777,
and Iho revenue was $1,041. Tho work
performed by the convicts is estimated
to be worth (at 60cts. per day per man)
$8,364. Of the admissions for the
year, 14 wero white, 11 Chinese, and
4 Indians. Of tho white men and Indians, 9 are classed aa Roman Catholics and the othor 0 as of no religion.
They camo from tho following places:
Victoria Hi, Lytton 4, Kamloops 4,
New Westminster 2, Nanaimo 2, Yale
1. The numbor of convicts in all the
Canadian penitentiaries nt the close of
the yoar was 1,112, hoing an increase
of 73 duriiitf the year. Tho increase
is distributed ns follows: Kingston
penitentiary (13, Dorchester 8, Manitoba 3, British Columbia 3. St. Vincent de Paul shows a decrease of 4.
Iu tiis report on tho British Columbia
penitentiary tho inspector speaks vory
highly of the warden, deputy-warden,
accountant, and the officers generally.
He recommeudB that the laud enclosing the glen bo walled in, that old government house bo fittod up for tho
warden, and that the erection of n new
winy tu the penitentiary bo undertaken
without delay,
Thr Svrrky Mili,.—According to
appointment a meeting waa held at
Brownsville last Wodncsday afternoon
to consider the question of establishing a steam flour and oatmeal mill at
that place. There were present the
reeves of Surroy, Delta and Richmond,
the mayor of New Westminster, Mr.
Wm. Shannon, Mr. Smith, nnd a
representative of Thr Columbian,
The reeve of Langley arrived too Into
for tho meoting. It was stated by the
Surrey deputation thnt the proposed
mill would coat not loss than $15,000,
and that a bonus of $6,000 would be
required. Of this Surrey proposed tu
give $1,000, nnd the government would
give $2,600, leaving $1,600 to be made
up by Langley, Maplo Ridge, Delta,
Richmond, nnd tho city of New Westminster. The reeves of Delta and
Richmond, nnd the mayor of the eity,
would promise no assistance until they
could lay the matter before their respective council*. Before the mooting
adjourned It was discovered, however,
that nono of tho municipalities had
power tu graut a bonus to a manufactory which would be established beyond ita municipal limits. It was then
suggested that a form of petition be
drawn up asking the legislature to
amend this portion of the municipal
aat, and that this petition be submitted to eaoh council for its approval.
Mr. Smith, wlioae esperience entitle*
him to apeak with Authority, had a
drawing representing a two-roller mill
auoh is It was proposed to oreoft. He
said such n mill would require aboot
250 bushels of wheat per day, and he
thought it would uot cost muoh less
than $20,000. In onler to keep it In
operation tt would bo necessary to import wheat from places beyond thia
district, fur the local supply would be
quite im-i'ffi-jjunt. Ho teemed to have
no noubi that a mill uf tho class specified would bo a succors if proporty located and run. Thero would be nu
difficulty in manufacturing a first-class
brand of flour.

THE POLICE SHOW WHAT STUFF 18 IN THEM.
By Telegraph.
Toronto, March 12.—The street mil-
way troubles assumed a serious aspect
to-day. According to instructions of
tho president of the compnny tlie running of cars was left iu the hands of
the city commissioner. Late in the
morning a car manned with a force of
policemen left tho stables and started
out ovor Front street. Tho mob immediately appeared nnd adopted obstructive tactics, and before the ear had proceeded very many blocka it wub completely blocked by coal curtB, express
wagons, etc. The police wore powerless
in their attempts to get the car through.
The abandoned car war; then turned towards the stables, where the mob attacked   and   completely   wrecked   it.
Toronto, March 12; 2 p. in.—At noon
another car started out of the atnhlos,
but had not proceeded far iilonu Front
street era it was efized by the mob. The
rioters pulled tho conductor and driver
otr tho car aud severely injured them before they could ho rescued by tlio police.
A squad of mounted police came on the
scene as the car approached Jnrvis street
and charged the mob, using batons very
freely, several of the mon were struck
by stones and injured, while a policeman
wa* knocked off his horse, but not severely hurt. Two arrests wero made, and in
Bpite of efforts to rescue them the prisoners were taken to tho station, Soon
afterwards another car was started; the
police were reinforced, and a strong detachment waa located along tho route.
The mob repeatedly charged and attempted to disable the car, but the police succeeded in getting the car through.
Batons were again freely used and
with good effect. The chief ringleaders
were arrested. At the present tune but
few cars are running on Queen and Yonge
streets. Eaoh ear ia manned by half a
dozen policemen. The police magistrate haa inatructcd the chief of police
to call out tho militia if necessary to
maintain order, hut the chief thinks the
force he haa at lua command is sufficient
to enforce the laws.
The "Myrtle Navy" tobacco is not
burdened with the usual coats whioh

consumer; the firm employs no travellers whatever, tlieir orders come to them
Instead of being sought by them. The
merchant doei not require to keep a
large stock on hand swelling its price
with interest, for the facsory is on im*
mediate aour-je of supply to him, at the
cost of a postal card or at most a tele*
fram. He loses nothing, therefore, from
eiug overstocked. The article ia a
staple one, for which there is aa constant a demand as for wheat or (lour, and
the merchant can therefore sell it at a
minimum rate of profit.
Entertainment at Moodyville.
(Correspondence of tho Columbian.)
On -Monday evening the reading-
room in connection with the library in
this placo was well filled with a highly
appreciative audience which had collected to listen to a programme consisting of song*, readings, dialogues,
Ao., tbe proceeds of which are to be
devoted to purchasing a boat for Key.
Mr. Clinton, of Granville, part of
whose parish lies across tho inlet. The
opening chorus, consisting of eleven
malo nnd female voices, was entitled
the "Greeting Glee." It was a beautiful piece of musical composition und
waa well rendered by tho performers,
A very amusing dialogue, iu which
several ladies una gentlomen took part,
represented ona of our super*retinud
female mithetics- ull "nerves" and
Hontiment, and her equally ridiculous
lover who, with spectacles on hia nose
and nn enurmoua aunhWur in hia buttonhole, looked wiser than nny mnn
possibly could be. Tho role of the
dude in this instance was flayed by
Mr. Oliver Hnrbell and it in no flatter*
to say that he did it welt indeed. He
is n littlo too stout, however, nnd hns
rather too healthy an appearance for
the ideal sun-ttower man, who ia supposed tn have a lean and hungry look
and to bu rather wobogono and melancholy, a combination uf qualities I um
bound to any Mr. Hnrbell docs not
possess. Mr, Clinton delivered a short
lecture iu which ho gave an interesting account of life in Oxford, his experience as a minister in Bedford, and
an excursion to the court of Norway,
Mr. King, who by the way was master
of ceremonies on the occasion, entertained the audience with a reading,
and to show that he haB not yet forgotten the warlike instinct he acquired
when an officer in the navy he selected
Macaulay's blood-stirring ballad, the
"Defence of tha Bridgo," and kept the
whole Etruscan army at bay for fully
ten minute*. Mr. Francis Miller followed by another reading, "Running
the Gauntlet/' which in a very realistic way pictured the experience of a
young man among tho Mohawks of a
bazaar. Among the novelties of the
evening'* entertainment was a Welsh
song by Mr. Cadwallader, the accompaniment to which was played on the
organ by hia daughter. It is unnecea-
aary to say that very few of those present knew what it was about, though
from the sweetness and tenderness of
the note* wo would think it was a lovo
song, one of those soft languishing airs
with which one may imagine tho
Welsh awaius wooed their maidens
among the beautiful valleys of that romantic land. After n song by Mr.
Clinton and the closing chorus tho
national anthem waa sung, and then
the seat* were piled up into a comer
and a couple of houn dancing was indulged In. Every person waa delighted
with the evening'* entertainment, and
all went home thoroughly satisfied.
Tbe people of Moodyvillo deserve a
Kteat deal of credit for the entertainment* they get up from time to time.
They are well worth attending, and
should be largely patronized.

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
On Monday Mr. Beavon moved for
au address asking tho federal government to repeal the Dominion Franchise
aet- or to exompt British Columbia
from ita operation*, bocauau it curtails
tho political rights of some people iu
this province. Several members spoko
to this resolution, the general opinion
of the house being adverse to it.
Mr, T, Davie moved for roturna of
all transactions sinco last genoral election between the provincial government nnd Muaars, Galbraith, Grant
aud MoLeeao, or any nf the tirms in
which tboy liad ati intorost. Thu
mover stated* ill ett'uci, that ho pro-
Iiosed thia resolution us a simple act of
uatico. The loader of the itpiiotlHon
isd made A similar motion respecting
Mr, Cunningham, mid it wna linlhtllg
but fair that all should bo served alike.
On the Mechanics' Lien bill Hun. j
Mr. Duck elated that it was proposed
to give a mechanic a lien on the building to the amount of not more than
glOO.
Mr. Galbraith'a bill to amend the
license act waa considered in committeo, Mr. Mara th(iu->ht the prosont
licensing system was bad. Mr, Cunningham said lie had several amond-
menta to propose, Hon, Mr. Smitho
snid tbe government had undor consideration the question of increasing
thc hconso fee.
On Tuesday a debate took place
on the consolidation of tho provincial statutes. Hon. Mr. Davio
said tho statutes had been revised in
1871 and nlso in 1877 and though they
had been used for reference were not
binding in any way, for they had never
in fact beou legalized. It wns now
proposed to submit'tho work of consolidation to two commissioners who
would bo thoroughly competent, and
the ruault of their work would be sub-*
mitted at the noxt legislative assembly,
and after a reasonable timo the govornment would ask that the consolidated laws bo accepted. Aa it now stood
justices of tho peace wero called upon
to adjudicate on cases the laws affecting which extended in nu unrovised
form over a period of ten yoars, nud
he thought it desirable to have the
wholo of tho a tutu tea in one or two
volumes. He did not think the expense would bo vory great, and also
that it waa only necessary to havo two
com mission era, with the attorney-general perhaps as a member ex officio,
though ho might say ho did not expect
to be able to give that time to the task
which, were he one of the appointed
commissioners, tho importance of the
work would call for from him. What
the remuneration would be wuuld be
largely dependent upon the time and
labor involved in the work. The printing could be dono in the govornment
printing office. He thought that all
members of the house wuuld agree that
it waB necessary that this revision
should take place, and it waa with this
conviction that ho hnd the honor of
moving tho second reading of tho bill,
which waB carried.
Mr. R, C. Witilow, Toronto, writes:
"Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery ia a valuable medicine to all who
are troubled with indigestion. I tried a
bottle of it after Buffering for some ten
years, und tho results are certainly beyond my expectations. It assists digestion wonderfully. I digest my food with
no apparent effort, and am now entirely
free from that sensation, which every
dyspeptic well knows, of unpleasant
fulness after each meal."

Reply to "Merchant."
Editor Columbian.--In your last is*
sue (March 10th) I notice a communication signed "Merchant," in which thn
assertion ia mnde that "Mr. James Cunningham, sub-contractor, only half finished the tin work and plumbing on the
new gaol," and that the work was
"scamped," ami that I, tho superintendent of tho work, was "tlio protege" of
the said sub-contractor. So far as I am
concerned .J do not bolieve that it is
necessary for nws to reply to such a cowardly libel, and although it constitutes
good grounds for an action lor malicious
libel, yet I feel certain that no man who
knows my conduct with relation to superintending publio buildings will believe
this cowardly insinuation under a fich-
thus >i"inc. I think most people believe
that I am a littlo too particular about
the execution of work. In no case, cither
in B. C. or elsewhere, previously, have I
had occasion to solicit au appointment as
superintendent: it has invariably been
offered me, by those who had perfoot
faith both in my ability and integrity; ao
that I feci I can afford to treat this low,
cowardly-i-npnuation with contempt. So
far as Mr.' Cunningham is concerned, I
must do him thc justice to say that ho
never interfered with tlio work of tinning or plumbing, but, on the contrary,
ho told me at the commencement of the
work, for which he waa sub-contractor,
that he placed his men under my control
to hare the work done lo my saiis/detion
I am willing to assume all responsibility,
and I challenge investigation. Tho plans
of the roofs being ao irregular, thc intersection of the valleys with the gutters
aud the amount of Hashing to ba done
rendered that part of the work very to*
dioua and expensive, und, contrary to all
my experience, there has never yet to my
knowledge been a leak. Tho plumbing,
though very complicated, hus not yet
given any trouble that I am aware of,
and this, too, is something unusual iu
new works of the kind. 'Jno plumbing
and tin-work about which this Ishmact-
itish "Merchant" makes such an ado is
far better, both in material and workmanship-, than tho specifications called
for. As for the part that Mr. Beaven is
playing iu this independence of parliament investigation, he had better explain
why he (whon chief commissioner) reserved all tho good blocks of land on the
Scott road until his friond Roland Hett
grabbed them up.
J a mi;s Kknnkdy.
Another ror "Merchant."
EniTon Columbian.—The mean coward who signs Iub name as "Merchant"
iu the letter referring to the tin and
plumbing work dono by James Cunningham k Co,'a mon docs not know good
work when ho sees it, I was foreman on
the job, and as I have worked over
twenty years at the business in New
York, Chicago uud Milwaukie, iu the
United States, and pretend to be as good
a judge of work aa Scoullarorany man in
thia city, I aay the work at the now jail
ia well done; the material is the best I
ever saw used outside of New Vork; and
as my instructions as foreman were to
make a good, honest job, T and the meu
under mu had no object in "scamping."
And now I conclude by saying that tho
man who signs himself "Merchant" falsifies the facts, and 1 am urepnrad to prove
it. Mr. T. McKay, who is a-'fmo-l mechanic and architect, says it is ns good a
job us bo ever saw done anywhere, I
can refer you and "Merchant" to him to
prove what J sny.      PuTBh Hanmkx.
And sun Another.
KniTon Columiuan*. —Haying carefully
read the letter of "Merchant" iu your
Issue of the 10th inst., wo fool in duty
bound to contradict tho unfavorable criticism of the plumbing and tin work of
the now jail. Whilo we aro desirous of
avoiding nil political questions, common
honesty compels ua to stato that the
work was well nnd -carefully dono and
the material used tirst-ehus in overy respect. Wa think it exceedingly unfair
to the firm who did the work and who
are now thn subject of a cowardly assault to permit the Blnnderous report to
go abroad without contradiction.

Woman Suffrage.
In the Colonist of   Wednesday we
find tho following letter which is written, we suspect, by a lady in this city:
To thk Editob:—Waa not your correspondent "Publicola" rather fastidious when, in the Colonist of the
27th of Feb., ho took exception to the
term "lady" being employed, by another correspondent writing upon the
vexed question of female suffrage?
What, may I aBk, is tho difference between a fad-/and a woman in thia British Columbia of ours? I turn to my
"Wubster's unabridged" and read:
"Lady—lat. A woman of distinction,
correlative to lord; in England, a title
prefixed to tho name of any woman
whose husband is not of lower rank
than a knight, or whose father was a
nobleman not lower than an earl.
2nd.—-A term of complaisance; applied
to almost any well-dressed woman, but
appropriately to one of refined manners
and education. 3rd.—Miitreu; the
female who presides or has authority
over a manor or a family." Then again
to the word "woman," and read, 1st.
—The feinalo of the human race, grown
to adult years. "And the rib, w-hich
the Lord Cod had taken from the man,
made the woman," (Gen. 2). 2nd.— •
A female attendant or servant.
Next, I open my New Testament
und in the 26th verso of tho 19th chapter of John I tind these words:—
"When . Jesus therefore saw His
mother, and the disciple standing by,
whom He loved, He saith unto His
mother,'Woman, behold thy Son!'"
We ascertain thus that our first mother,
the equal possessor with Adam uf all
the wealth of Paradise, waa a woman
nothing more—and that the mother of
our "Immanuel," (Qod with us) the
King of Glory, was only a woman; but
that in England females of rank and
wealth are called ladies; alao, that the
title is appropriately given to all women
who are educated and refined and by
general consent to all mistresses of
households. In B.C., in certain circles, it designates a class of women,
who, without rank uf wealth, are trying tu persuade themselves and others
that they belong to the aristocracy,
aud who spend their time reading
novels, talking to eaoh other of the
latest style of dress, the merits and
demerits of their servant* and the supposed fashionable amusements of the
place. Would such women, think you,
ask for tho privilege of the franchise 1
No, indeed. They are too indolent,
too selfish, What matters it to them
if our young men are being demoralized, and our prisons constantly replenished with criminals ? What concern is
it of theirs if deathlesa souls are being
hurried into misery ? They are latitat;
uf course it would be "repugnant to
their feelings to bB called upon to leave
their homes to record their votes
amidst tho excitement uf a contested
election," but it is never "repugnant
to their feelings to leave home" and
go to a ball, oven if it be a masquerade
one, and there bo carried about the
room all night in the arms of young
men with whom they are but slightly,
if at all, acquainted, "amidst the excitement" produced by a free use of
alcoholic stimulants, and an over-heated atmosphere.
"Publicola," I think, rightly interpreted your lady correspondent's letter
when ho concluded her supposition to
be "that if women were enfranchised
thero would be returned, ns representatives, a superior class of men, more
especially those m favor of prohibition,
and which would do away with drunkenness and crime," and I am glad to
believe, thore are multitudes of such
'-'Ladies," educated and refined, pure
and noble who care enough for their
husbands, sons and brother* to be willing to sacrifice their own private feelings and brave the disdain and displeasure of narrow-minded, tyrannical,,]
and oft times evil-loving men, and in
a modest, prayerful spirit go to the
appointed placo and record nn honest
vote for the man who, they believe, if
elected, would represent their views
iu the legislature or municipal council,
and assist in the enactment of righteous
laws, which would tejid to make their
country and neighborhood a safe and
happy home in which to educate their
sons and daughter*. And even supposing they should be obliged to share
with their husbands the responsibility
of raising the revenue; would it not
pay ? Would it not be a satisfaction to
think the taxes would bo spent in good
roads and school houses instead of in
trying criminals?
Jlusa Miller Avery remark*: "The
analogy between the freeing of the
negroes and the emancipation of woman
is very striking. First, we will notice
the old cry, 'The slave* don't want to
be free, they're a thousand time* better
off as they are,' A Kentucky gentle*
man once aaid to me, 'I entreat you
not to be ao given to sympathy for a
class who are too animal in their natures to accept liberty a* a boon or to
accept it as a blessing.' I replied, 'Sir,
grant your statement to be true, it is
the worst feature of slavery that i* yet
presented, to imbrute human beings to
a degree that they can neither understand nor appreciate freedom!' The
average politician tells us the average
woman does not want the ballot, ihe is
better off without it; indeed, she haa
no use for it. Grant thi* atatement to
be triie, it is the worst phase of the
enso, that there are women who havu
become so used to their enslavement
that they grow fond of the restrictions
that confine their usefulness and aspirations to make themselves and this
world botter by having lived in it.
Thoy rejoice in the beauty, peace and
harmony of their homos, and express
no wish to cast a ballot that will mako
beauty, peace and harmony in the
national home. The family roof covers
but a short time the children born beneath it. They soon go out to breathe
tho pestilential air of inebriety and
sensualism, or fall Into some pit-hole
of destruction covered by legislative
enactment. And woman's hand ia
shortened;, it cannot save the children
God has given her, The woman who
would-hot face all the political bugbears uver soon or invented; who would
not face even death itself to cast a voto
to rescue her child from the miasma of
the political camp; to save him from
the strife and war of factions, the gambling dens of the political exchange,
tho whirlpool of political passion; the
woman who would not venture a voto
to save her children, tn redeem and
savo her country, is not worthy of tho
ting that shelters her or tbe love that
crowns her wife and mother. She is
sadly out of her sphere who hoars not
tho voice from the cross, saying,
"Weep not for me; but weep for yourselves and fnr your children."
"Oh, luxury-loving, pi easure-seeking mothers, you uro selling your birthright forn meet of pottage, and your
beautiful ohildwn aru being destroyed,
by t he log" I 'ed vices that the mother's
ballot could throttlo and keep at bay.
To-dny the hideous warfare is raging.
The gnllerieB are crowded with pleasure-loving spectators, while your noble
boy or your beautiful girl crouches
helpless iii tho arena, at the gates are
unbarred and the blood-thirsty bona of
intemperance and sensuality, with a
wild leap and roar, fasten their bloody
fangs upon them! The mad dogs are
loose; the fathers acknowledge their
helplessness; in the name of suffering,
heart-broken, toiling humanity, mothers spring to the rescue."

The Whitehall Review is responsible
for u'Btory which, if true, gives some
indication of the magnitude- of the
task Mr. Gladstone has undertaken in
trying to satisfy the demands of his
Irish supporters. When, it seema,
a certain Irish member of Parliament,
who is also a lawyer waa settling down
in his new house, he asked to have
the methods of the gas-meter explained to hiin, Thia was accordingly done, the usual explanation
being given that at the end of each
quarter the hands on the clock working forward indicated the amount of
gas that had been consumed. At the
close of one quarter, when the inspector called, the gas-meter cluck had gone
back instead of forward, and, as the
occupier of the house remarked, showed that the gas company was in hia
debt exactly six-and-eightpence.

Spurgeon on Long Sermons.
Bofore leaving for Montone Mr.
Spurgeou, in a racy address, warned
his students against indulging in long
sermons.' A few extracts from the
nddress will be found interesting.
Vory Bi'ldom among Dissenters, saya
Mr. Spurgeon, du wo hear any complaint as to the undue shortness of
discourses; the tendency is all the
other way. Why do ministers preach
lung seruiutis'j Is it for their owu
pleueure, or is it for the pleasure of
the people? If it is the latter, they
certainly are grievously mistaken, und
if tt is the former they might practice
ii littlo self-denial. Over an hour
might be enjoyed by our Puritan fore-
* it hers; but wo are a degenerate race,
and besides have mure to do. Yet
>ood men here and there presume upon
■nr patience, if not upon our piety,
mul though they give ub little they
iitnkn it'long. Sermons ought never
i be measured by tlio yardstick or the
clock; but thuy ought to be measured
by this une simple rule, "have dene
when you have done." Don't bo par-
ieular about how you come to a close,
but bu a great deal more concerned
not to keep on till your discourse dies
like a candle which cannot give anither dicker. Du not be too much
drawn out iu yout discourse, because
very frequently the people are tired
enough before you reach the sermon.
When they have heard yuu read those
hymns in that horrible tone; when
they have listened tu the chapters,
unbroken by a word of comment; when
lhey have denied sleop during that
lung prayer of yours, which iB so rambling nud inonutonous; they are by
I thnt time near enough to being worn
I out. Tako pity upon them, and du
not impose upon their good nature any
further thnn you cau help. If you
multiply words you will spoil what you
havo done. Strike while the iron is
hut, but do not keop un striking till
the iron grows cold; though that is
what many do. They hit tho nail on
the head and drive it in; and then go
on hammering till they split the board,
and the nail drops uut. Thuy preuol
their people iuto a guod frame of mind,
and then preach them out of it.
After enjoining his students not to
attempt to say all they know every
time they preach, but to "reserve a
potatoto for the next meal," Mr. Spurgeon goes uu;—Remember that yuur
discourse is probably nothing like so
precious to the people as it is to yourself.    Wheu parents gazo upon their
first child, they usually feel that very
auldom,   perhaps novor. was such  a
baby born into the world before; and,
therefore, it is brought forward to be
admired and kissed by everybudy.   It
is only natural thut it should be so;
but visitors are not all of them so much
impressed as the parents themselves.
I haro known them to hint that thoy
had seen and hoard quito enough of
that delightful infant.   I am -sorry to
say that.tho same thing may happen in
tho case of a sortnon.    Young man,
you have been all the week dressing
your baby—I mean your sermon—in
lung   clothes,   bedecked    with   very
pretty bows, and on Sunday you hold
it up to be admired.   Now, be as wiao
as those parents who have ten children,
and, therefore do not look upun them
as prodigies, flelieve that uther people
have probably preached as good sermons ai yours, and that it is possible
that they have excelled you.   It is
not, therefore, all-important that you
should take up an unreasonable length
of tint* in displaying your production.
Say whit you have to say; say it with
all your heart; and do not linger over
the theme as if you were the only
person who oould handle it aright.   1
would recommend my young brethren.
m much us possible.tocompressand condense. When you have obtained a quantity of good thought* boll them down.
A letter from Deleware tells mo
& pretty story of Kate Bayard, the
beautiful daughter whom death took
so lately from our Secretary of State.
Six ur seven years ago her phaeton
was a familiar sight in Wilmington and
on the roadways thereabout; she waB
already known among her friends ub a
daring rider, and there were stories
abundant of heroic exploits and dangers
braved in tho saddle. Tho horse that
she used for her phaeton was spirited,
but nobody ever worried for tho fair
driver's safety; she had too often shown
her power to license u thought uf danger. Tho horse seemed to know her;
viciousness that was shown when others
approached melted intu gentleness at
once when she took up the reiuaj peu-
ple whu believed in the intelligence of
brute creation pointed out this horse's
actions as proof of their correct faith.
Onu summer evening as Miss Bayard
was driving alone ou the outskirts of
West Wilmington her attention was
attracted toward a lively group of boys
at the side of tho roadway. In then*
center was a mun must forlorn iu appearance, his face the picture of misery,
his clothes all in tatters. The boys in
their silly thoughtlessness were persecuting him.
tue girl's sympathies
were enlisted at once. Her carriage
came tu a stand-still, and her voice
rebuked the boys, who, staring une
moment agape with astonishment, fell
back a little, but they did not cease
their taunts. The poor man against
the roadside looked up as much amazed
as had been his persecutors. It wasn't
an inviting countenance, and yet theru
was something in it not wholly bad,
Pebbles were lired at him by the retreating lads, and then as he tried to
move ho revealed to the good Samaritan who had come to his rescue that
he was a cripple. This brought her
from her phaeton in a trice. A word
to her horse, a pat upon its neck, uud
she left it to go within touching distance of the poor, hopeless fellow,
despairing in this by-street of a town's
suburb. "What was tho matter?'1
"Why was he there/" "How had he
fallen into such a plight V Thoso were
questions that sho asked in quick succession. Aud the reply that eamo was:
"I am only a tramp." She didn't
draw bnck. That was not tho way of
Kate Bayard. "But you avo a man!'*
sho said. He lookod as if he were half
afraid to assert thai he could claim
even this, and ho drew back with a
visible shudder as the brave girl said:
"You must have somebody to cure for
yuu. Let me take you to the hospital."
He smiled, half thankfully, half doubtfully, and, lhough no words wore uttered, his eyes, taking on a new light,
seemed to sparkle out, "You mock
mo," He did uot know Kate Bayard
any better than the world knows many
another woman who for her own
heart's sake does good deeds in secret.
She bent and helped him to rise. Ono
leg would not bear his body's weight
and he had hard work to
MUFFLR THE GROAN*
that half escaped him in tho pain of
moving; but heroically, his ragged
coat-sleevo running through the arm
of as lovely a girl as ever lived, he
hobbled step by step to tho phaeton's
side and was lifted—virtually lifted ns
a mother tenderly would lift her infant
—in thruugh the wheels to the carriage
seat. Then came an exciting experience. She was half between the vehicle's wheels, when the horso, that had
been standing quietly enough while he
could watch his mistress, became
angry. The boys, who had scattered,
had not drawn out uf sight, and their
sport was being continued by showers
of missiles thrown promiBcuoualy in
the carriage's direction, and they were
hooting and crying more loudly than
ever. This it was that had unstrung
tho horse's nerves, and he pranced and
reared, though he did not start to run.
Tho wheels of tho carriage caught the
girl in tlieir clasp aud hugged her
fiercely one moment, and then released
her unly for a Bocond, wheu she rushed
forward to the frightened Iiuiso'b bridle. The alarm of the animal was intensified. Nuw he dashed away on a
full run, whirling the light phauton
hither mid thither over tho roadway in
a manner that buded speedy destruction. Tho hun-lUuns parted as the
runaway cut through thoir ranks, but
not one was big enough or bravo
enough to try to stop the wild horse,
On and on ho plunged, but nll the
time the brave-hearted Kate Bayard
CLUKU TO THE BRIDLE
rein, and sho swung through the air
like a bird at the flying animal's sido.
Nor did she lose her self-consciousness,
She called,her horse by name, nnd her
tune was as affectionate and calm as
though he were standing still for
caresses. A long time he paid nu attention to this, and dangers on dangers
were encountered and passed through,
till liually, half exhausted perhaps, tho
stalwart croaturo turned his head,
neighed, and quickly came to a standstill. Nobody had been hurt, tho carriage was whole, some harness had
been strained and ripped, the man in
the phaeton had fainted—his sufferings
nud excitement had conquered him.
That man was tunderly cared for by
Kate Bayard and her friends, and
eventually he went out into tho world
a well man and in a mind wholly different from that which had possessed
Iii in on tho day ho was found a helpless
victim uf idle boys in a public roadway. No, there was no record of any
heroic act by which this rescued man
subsequently served her who saved
hiin. Nor was thero any need fur any
such act tu add auy color to this good
thing that Thomas ¥, Bayard's
daughter did. He whom she lifted up
wus ever afterword a changed man.
Ho had a history that had something
of good in it. The wild sou of a New
York farmer, he had left college to go
South ns a soldier early in the war,
and had fallen there into bad habits.
That, briefly, wu his story, Now he
is a clergymen of the Methodist
Church.—a. y. ZVftutM.
