WMlMMta* Fvcnlag. February IS, ISS!,
Pnblle Rights vs. Monopoly.
Uritith law und the laws of the
United States are much the same in
principle and aim, This is natural,
liecauso the two nations liavo a com-
unon origin, and their social life and
political institutions are much alike.
iiT follows that any abstract principle of common law plainly established in one of these two nations
should apply equally to the other.
In some respects the Americans are
ahead of us, because their interpretation' of constitutional law seems
more often to embody the principle
of public rights and the interest of
the commonwealth. Notably has
this been true in relation to some of
the decisions of the higher courts
respecting railway companies. The
supreme court of the United States
long ago declared that a railway
charter': which established a monopoly could not stand because.it was
opposed to every constitutional principle which protects the right of
property. According to this interpretation of law, no legislative body
has authority to grant a charter for
a'monoply, and all such charters are
void. The supreme .court of Ohio
has declared that any combination
the purpose of whicli is to establish
monoply and prevent competition is
illegal. The supreme court of Massachusetts has reached a similar con
elusion, and the supreme court of
Pennsylvania has declared such combinations to be illegal and criminal
because they were conspiracies
agaitist the public interest. In the
action of Wells, Fargo & Oo.'s ex
press company-against the Northern
Pacific Boilway, noticed in this
paper about two years ago, the same
question came up, and the decision
was against monopoly and in favor
of public rights. In declaring judgment in this case Mr. Justice Greene,
of the supreme court of Washington Territory, laid it down as a principle of law that "a railway proprietor's undertaking is gauged every
way by reference to actual public
requirements. Being exclusive proprietor of both a highway and its
furniture, his undertaking embraces
du equipment and operation of the
road up to a limit which public confidence calls it to reach, or forbids
it to pass, and up, to this limit is
embraced atl facilities for transportation of all sorts of freight. He
must ao conform with toe general
sense of what is convenient and
proper that his conduct of the road
shall hot be a source of public irritation, nor amount to an obstruction
ol that which should in very deed
be the 'people's highway. * * *
Such are ite relations and duties as
* railway corporation created for
special public business, and subsidised from the public wealth" These
are Clear and forcible words, uttered
by a judge whose interpretations of
law are sueh as to command respect
everywhere. From the principles
laid- down by Judge Greene it follows that the Canadian Pacific Bail-
way, or any other railway, is a work
chartered and constructed in the
public interest and for the public
good, It may be said that the good
of the commonwealth required the
construction of a railway across the
continent on Canadian soil, but it
did not necessarily require the formation and incorporation of the existing railway syndicate. The syndicate became merely a means towards an end, and it follows that
the means could not be greater than
the end, nor could it be allowed to
defeat the purpose sought by the
did, namely, the public good, judge
Greene says: "A corporation once
created is a person. It has the right
to life, liberty, and the pursuit of
happiness, proportionate to the terms
ol its being, just as any other
person has, Jt is amenable to political restraint, correction and punish
ment, on the same principles of justice as are applied to natural persona If it hts a franchise, it has
it Pfc*p*«ets*ly tha same footing as
any individual would hold'the like.
By virtue of its franchise it becomes
a state agent for exercise of the
stato power which constitutes the
franchise. This agency is irrevocable, except that it may expire by limitation, be withdrawn
and compensated by eminent domain, bt forfeited by neglect, be
cor4imitsd for' misbehavior or be
snuffed out by revolution. Now,
then, tinea the franchise is an exer-
cite of state power, and the state
hu no power in excess of that
necessary to provide for the general
welfare, and the people and their
welfare are in a continual flow,
thar* mutt be left in' the state a
cohtonant power, through legislature
and judicisry, to accommodate the
exercise of tht franchise to the cur
rent welfare of tht public, And
whether tho legislature, which is
OM otgsa of the state, or the owner
tl franchise, who is another,
airly (or tlit publio good in
noe to tbe exercise of the
franchise must be. left, it seems to
mt, to the arbitrament of the courts.
I btlftrt tbat in the courts the pub-
lit hn ind will find an all sufficient bulwark against corporate op-
prettioo, and tht oorporations will
find Iteurity against any unjutt leg
islation." Wo havo not found nmong
tho decisions of Canadian courts
anything uo Sensible und so searching as this nn the poiut of railway
monopoly or excessive ' charges.
These principles, if curried out,
would, wo are sure, greatly modify
tho railway grievances under whioh
tho peoplo of this province are now
struggling.

To tbe Electors ofthe Electornl District ol Now Westminster.
CJENTDEMEN;—Shortly, after the lamented doath of our lato liepresentatlvc,
Mr. Homer, I was Solicited hy a number
of my friends, to allow myself to be nominated as a Candidate for the Representation of tbo District of Now Westminster In
the House of Commons of Canada. Tho
fiersomil solicitation of friends,waa short*
y followed by requisitions so numerously
signed, by prominent und inlluenlnl .Electors of the UJty and District, that I felt it
to be my duty to placo my servlcesat tboir
disposal. It Is not therefore, Gentlemen,
ns" a Bolf-nomlnnted candidate, that I nsk
for your support, but I do no lu response to
tbo request of ovor four hundred of your
number,
Tomunyof you, Gentlemen, who havo
Known mo fora longtime, it Is unnecessary forme to sny, thnt I um perfectly
familiar wllh the grent und varied resources of tills Province. My knowlodgc
of its Mining, Fishing, Agricultural and
Commercial advantages has boen derived
from actual experience, and will (If elected) enable mo to placo prominently boforo Parliament, the great resources of
this Province, nml (he means necessary
to bu employed to nld In tboir further
development.
tali impossible, Gentlomen, In nn nddress such as this to do moro than allude
to some of tho qiiesiious of Interest unit
Importance to you, which as your representative, I would consider It to be my
duty to. bring to the notice of Parlinment.
I will, however, enumerate a few matters
of great Importance to us nil, in regard to
which It will bo niy earliest endeavour to
obtain beneficial legislation,
I will endeavour to havo removed from
tho mouth of out noble Rivor, every impediment to Itmhd, navigation, und have
necessary lightiioi**es erected.
I will endoavoi*. to secure to settlors und
squatters nu Immediate title to their
lands. This I consider to bo a matter not
only of justice, but Also of expediency.
Heretofore great injustice has been done
to n valuablo aud deserving class of our
population, to whom, nad Justice been
dono and faculties airbrdod for acquiring
homesteads, the results of their Industry
would, ore this, hnve done much to Bevel
op the agricultural capabilities of this fino
district. '.;,
I nm aware, Gentlemen, thnt tlio num-
bot of representatives to which ciich province of tho Dominion Is entitled is i.-.setl
upon population, yot I believo that, tp\ Ing
to exceptional circumstances, suoh as tho
fact that this province contributes tothe
revenue of the Dominion a much larger
percentage, according to population, than
any of tlio other provinces; and also to
tho.fact that large centres of population
arc rapidly being formed in this district-
that it is entitled to u larger representation in the parliament of the Dominion,
and whicli as A matter of justtcel will en»
dca>or to obtain.
1 will ulso endeavour to obtain for the
residents of this District better postal
facilities, to which (hey are Justly entitled.       ,/
I will uso my host eflorts to secure equitable rates bit nil railway und telegraph
lines, and to have the same fixed bylaw.
The interests of llrltlsh Columbia demand that every imped Intent in the way
of constructing railways to our Southern
bonndury and otlicr portion.*) of this district bo removed to uid In the development of our resources, I will ondcavorto
havo this ai cotnpllshcd, nud ulso to obtain nld for tho construction of canals nud
the improvement of navigable streams,
I will also consider It iny duty lo render
all possible aid to any legislation which
socks to simplify nnd render less costly
the administration of justice,'especially
ns between Individuals und corporations.
My ^political platform Is, lu tho first
place, the Interest of llrltlsh Columbia,
which I beliovo can bo best served by my
giving an Independent support to the
present govornment, wliich has not ln the
past boon unni'liulful of tho Interests
of llrltlsh Columbia, und to whom wo
nre indebted for the early completion
of the railway, which hns brought
us Into communication with the Eastern
Provinces and Europe", nnd through
the agency of which, wo will In tho
near future, be placed ln direct communication with Australia, China, Jupnn,
and tho Groat Eastern Empire, which
must provo to hoof Incalculable value to
this province, nnd lo this district In particular.
In conclusion, gentlemen, J huvo only
to sny, that I nm prompted byaslncoro
desire to benefit this district und to nld In
promoting Its varied Interests, nnd I nsk
your support only upon these grounds.
It is my intention to see its mnny of you
previous to the election ns time and circumstances wil I admit of in Iho meantime.
I remain, Gontlemon,
Yours very truly

thoroughly justify the eeomiitma whicli
the shareholders present bestowed upon

manner iu which tbe Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income tho very small ratio of between 17 and 18 por cent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Compnny is ths fact that the interest

the Confederation Lifo is soutetiiiu^ to be
prond of. Tho nss ts nnd liabilities are
aet forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for atl

Nbw York, Feb. 15.-The Star's
London cablegram says: "Telegrams
from European capitals are still more
warlike. Berlin dispatches assert that
the German government has received
positive advices of continued concentration of French troops in direct contradiction to instructions alleged to
have been issued by General Boulanger.
Late Paris telegrams confirm reports
that the Alsace-Lorraine garrisons are
being brought up to war surength, snd
give additional accounts of heavy
movements of German- troops toward
the French frontier.   A Vienna dis-
Eatch states that the minister of war
as suddenly stopped work on the
French and Russian contracts for
magazine rifles, revolvers, and munitions of war. All factories are now
working exclusively on small arms and
ammunition for tho Austrian government. Press censorship at St. Petersburg has, to a great extent dried up
the sources of information; but through
Roumanian channels it is learned that
two Russian corps d'armee are completing their concentration in the
south-east and heavy reinforcements
Are going from the interior to the
southwest. From Constantinople wo
learn that M. Zankoff is urging the
Parte to press tha powers for their
decision on bis proposals for settlement
of the Bulgarian question. Bulgarian
representatives, acting on the advice
of Sir Wm. White, ore evading definite reply while awaiting the development of events. Zankoffs proposals
are opposed by Austria, England, and
Italy. Zankoff lias declared that no
settlement, .hort of a division of Bulgarian authority between the existing
regency and the representatives of
Russia, will be accepted by tho latter
government. . The opinion prevails
thai Zankoff will soon return to Bulgaria to stir up an insurrection and
afford Russia an excuse for intervention.
Sin FkANCisco, Feb. ID.—Eleven

few minutes the door was opened nnd
a aad eight revealed. Lying on tho

They were carried to the sidewalk oui-
side and are still alive, although suffering terribly. They cannot recover.
The father, Edward Hoffner, is also in
a critical condition.

taken to show leniency to females. All
persons imprisoned for debt throughout India, where the debt is under one
hundred rupees, will be liberated tomorrow also in commemoration of the
jubilee. In these cases the government will pay debt*,

BlKLIN, Feb. 15.—Cardinal Jacobin! has sent a letter to Bismarck
thanking him lor his recent concessions
in revision of May laws.
Commenting on the recent article
in La Prance, asserting France's disposition for peace, and that the re-
•ponsibility for war will rest with Germany, the Nortii German Gazette
says: "It requires all the effrontery of
ravanch. journalism to dish upper-
veraWoa of this nature. The articles
ia th* same paper of October llth and
DeoatnbeT 18th announced France
ready to tight and expressed a wish
that the decisive moment would not
b* loaf-delayed, and proolnimad the
firm iatontton of the French to retake
Kims Zttom. publishes a manifesto
signed by Count Fuerstenberg Storr
bein <Ntd tklrtjr-aix members of the
RhtaWi Oathcjio nobility, declaring
that tha entire jtfaty, instead of- pur-
suiM. the greet ntOmsl policy, liad
adopted a policy of frivolous bickering, ending in open alliance with democratic progressists and principles, aud
that the whole course and action of
tho party was thus opposed to the
urgent admonitions of the pope. The
signors therefore call upon Rhenish
electors firmly and loyally to stand by
the emperor and co-operate in his
support with the Catholic Conservative party. Clerical deputy Woufang
of Mainz has issued un electornl address in whicli lie adheres to the trien-
nate and maintains tho courso whioh
the centre party have taken to bo harmonious and with love for his fatherland and the rights and interests of
the people,. He hopes the new reichstag will confirm the previous vote
ou the military bill by a large majority.

London, Feb. 15.— Chamberlain
and Sir Georgo O. Trevylan to-day
resumed the conference on the Irish
queation with Baron Hersohell, Sir
William Vernon Harcourt and Morley
Chamberlain presented a draft of a
scheme for the government of Ireland
which is a modification of his former
proposals for the establishment of
provincial councils. He would now
establish an Ulster parliament at Belfast and another at Dublin, both to be
subordinate tothe imperial parliament.
The Irish bodies would hold executive
authority within their own limits, but
the crown would retain the appointment of judges snd control customs
and excise matters. The conference
lasted several hours. Morley declared
hia emphatic opposition to Chamberlain's proposals, and said it would be
impossible to obtain the assent of the
Parnellites or the bulk of the tilud-
stonian liberals to a scheme which already has been rejected by Gladstone.
The Chinese government has sent
the British foreign ofiiee a dispatch
Baying it was unaware of any movement un the Ohinese frontier adjacent
to Burmah, and assuring the govern
ment of the continued amity of China.
New York,, Feb. 15.—In an interview with a reporter of the Mail and
Express, Sir Lionel West, British minister at Washington, ssid. " I do not
anticipate any trouble whatever about
the fishery question. Negotiations
are now going forward in London between Minister Phelps and the Britiah
government, and I think the question
will be finally settled before congress
adjourns. Even if the retaliatory and
non-intercourse bill goes through and
becomes law, I do not think the relations between this country and Canada
will be strained. The president will
have power to put the law in force or
not as he seo. proper, and that is a
provision thnt he will prevent any
harsh or rush measures being taken
untill all pacific measures are exhausted.
The Italians who luok the place of
the strikers on the Morgan line were
all discharged to-day and colored help
put in their places. The company aro
negotiating with the old hands to come
back, and ill the meantime the freight
jam is as bad na during the first days
of the striko.
Rome, Feb. 15.—Monittttr discredits the idea that lhe pope is fomenting
European discord, hoping thereby to
obtain the restoration of the temporal
power of the church, but declares that
the pope is justified in securing the
friendship of tho powerful empires in
order exentually to submit the position uf the papacy to a vote of the
powers.
London, Feb. 15.—Paris newspapers report msny disquieting incident,
on the German frontier. La Justice
learns from Neitfchatel that not a single soldier has been allowed leave of
absence for even half an hour on any
pretenae, the commander having
learned that Germany ia seeking a
pretext for a petty quarrel. A journal
in Alsace reports that the Leipsic
court issued a .'arrant for the search
of the home of HerrSuhmutz of Stras-
burg, and that the police ransacked
the house but found nothing of a criminating nature. Tho houses of numerous bankers and othora throughout
the provinces ure reported to have
lio.n searche I for similar reaions.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(XiZ2AX0?B.33.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1*87,
the Columiuan Newspaper and
Printing Concern wus purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known as the
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has boen for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
tho British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster.
Victoria and Vancouver. The object of
thc new company is to continue the publication of the BttiTlsii CoM'MMAX newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
thoso whose individual interest it will be
to promote thc development, especially
of the Mainland. There will be no
slackening of thu energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
Thc CouiMHiAN will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote, itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may lie considered In the public interest.
Thc concern is uowcntirely separate from
any other business, tho book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. K.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
In his owu namo and for his own benefit.
It Is desirable thnt n dally newspaper
ihould be maintained in this city, and
the now company asks for publie patronage on the grotind thnt It Is engaged in
an enterprise calculntcd to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Cot.-
i'miiian be judged on its own merit* and
supported only so long at its policy is
consistent with its professions. In con-
lequenco of this business change all ac*
counts duo thc concern must he settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may lie adjusted and
closed. Address alt communications and
