The Chairman, Mayor Brown, Deliv
ers Some  Valuable Thoughts
Upon the Subject.
Mr. Foster, Senior Member for Nanaimo District, also  Makes a
Few Remarks.
A largo and appreciative audience,
estimated to be 500 in number, listened
with great interest and attention to the
remarks of Mr. B. H. West, the Single
Tax advocate of Victoria, last night in
tho Opera House. A few minutes after
8 o'clock Mayor Ilrown took the chair
aud was welcomed with .applause, He
said that it was his pleasant duty to introduce to the audience Mr. B. 11. West,
of Victoria, who had como here to explain to the people what is commonly
kifown as tho Single Tax idea. Mr.
West had come here at the reouest of
the Westminster Single Tax 'Association and would no (louot muy ami clearly explain in the course of his lecture
tlio merits of the system he advocated.
For himself he has not been able to give
sufficient timo and thought to the consideration of this subject; a subject
which the best thinkers of the ago frankly admitted to he ono of the deepest importance ; therefore he was scarcely
qualified to pass n decided opinion on
the matter. Those in the audience who,
like himself, were not well informed on
the question, would doubtless receive
enlightment on a subject which. every
day was attracting more attention ana
had long since established its claim to
the gravest consideration. Tho loftiest
intellects in tip Old World and in
America were bestowing the most
serious thought upon this single-tax
idea, but whatever conclusions they
came to, one thing was sure, its objects
are right and must claim the sympathies
of overy thinking man. Anything giving
evidence of the banishment of poverty,
crime, suffering and misery and the
hundred attendant evils that spring
from crime, anything that gives evidence
of the banishment of these things from
amongst the people must claim our very
heartiest consideration and sympathy.
Nineteen centuries have sped away since
the sacred Nazarene preached these
self-same doctrines, and spoke of the
announcement of "good news lo tlie
poor." Even now the aim seems to be
to drive a wedge into the centre of society, and in the driving of this wedge
thoso below must be, are, crushed. The
tendency of thiB wedge-driving ago is to
make the rich, richer and the poor,
poorer. If by any right and equitable
means in our power we can remedy
this tot us make use of such
means. [Applause. I No one can deny
that the condition of alfairs to-day is
Bimply this: A trcmendoiiB force is
seeking to raise itself, better itself, and
expand into new and fresher life and
vigor. It trembles with suppressed
energy and is making vast attempts to
rise to its feet- But, on the other
hand an. almost. equally tremendous
forco, is seeking to hold tliis other force
down, and for one reason—that it is
afraid of the consequences. Now, there
can be only one ending to this struggle.
That uplifting force will Anally break
loose and an awful conflict will take
place, and ono of these giant combatants will issue from that conflict much
the worse tut ti,v uiMtJug. (Asnlause.)
The single-tax theory proposes to postpone that conflict indefinitely. Single
tax simply comes to us in face of this
vast impending struggle of opposing
forces and asks us to try it, and to let
reason judge for us whether we shall
approve or disapprove it. One thing is
sure, and that ia that the single-tax
theory must commend itself to allright-
thinking men as at least something
worth serious thought. Aud no one can
afford to scout it as a fad or as n mere
unworkable chimera. Single tax is
worth trying and it should be tried.
Ho had now much pleasure in introducing the speaker of the evening, Mr.
West, whose lecture, he would undertake to say, would interest tho audience
deeply.
Mr. West, on coming forward, waB
greeted with applause. He did not
know whether lie would like to call his
remarks by the high-toned name of a
lecture, kindly applied to it by the
worthy chairman. For his part he was
satisfied to call it a talk. Ho would try
to tho best of his ability to lay beforo
them the principles and aims of this
much-talked-of.single tax theory. He
did not expect to make any Biulden converts to the cause by this lecture; the
Biibjeet was too great to bc fully touched
upon in one speech, but he diet wish to
call the attention of his whole audience
to the injustice and wrong that is to bo
seen rampant throughout the length
and breadth of the world to-day and
through nothing else titan tho present
iniquitous system of taxation.
Let them look close at home; must not
his hearers be vory much interested in
anything that tends to the welfare of
British Columbia? And, ho would ask
them, do our present methods of taxation encourage the development of our
vast mineral, agricultural aud forest
wealth ? If they do they. must
then conduce to tho highest development
of those sources of wealth, and to question those methods would be unjust and
wrong. If they do not encourago that
development they ought to be abolished.
(Applause). Suppose a man were to
come hero and erect a factory which
would employ 200 hands the year round,
should such n man be encouraged?
Would not his efforts help to make
Westminster tho kind of city wo all
want to see? His factory would cost in
round numbers say, $200,000. Now, lot
us see what the present mode of taxation would do with him. II would
simply say to the mun, "Wo will fine
you $1,000 per annum for giving us
something thut we need." -That's tho
kind of encouragement ho would get
under tho present system of taxation.
No impartial honest thinking man can
defend such methods cither fiom the
economic standpoint or on the ground of
common justice. (Applause),. Wo
want methods of taxation that will encourage tho building of houses by lho
formation of new industries, the bringing of capital and labor here to develop
the country to its utmost. Any law
that tends to hinder tho establishment
of industries, reasonable enterprises and
the acquirement of honestly earned
wealth we do not wunt. Tho 'man who
builds houses, factories, shops and mills,
or establishes industries, should receive
all the encouragement that can possibly
bo given. Ho for one could never see the
justice er sense of fining a man who did
those things that benefit tlio community
whero thoy arc established to au incalculable degree
Take for instance tho case of the man
who builds a house on suburban property i he Improves that littlo piece of
laud and expends considerable sums of
money on it and by doing bo not only
makes his own place more valuable but
to a very high degree enhances tho
value of the vacant lots around him.
But, then, the present syBtom of taxation steps in and claps on increased
taxes'and tries in every way to burden
him with all kinds of payments. Would
it not be better to tax the man who does
not build, but whoso land is benefitted
by his neighbor's industry? would it not
be better to increase his taxes propoi
tionately with tho inarch of improve
ment around his vacant lots than tho
home-builder and the factory-founder?
(Prolonged and hearty applause.) Any
man whose mind is'actuated by the
sacred principles of justice and equity
and who has given any thought to the
great science of political economy must
see that this ia the proper way. Tax
the man who does not and will not
build, but holds on to his land, and not
the benefactor of thousands who in his
factory, mill or workshop gives to the
community something that it needs,
something that is ii blessing
in the locality. (Great applause.)
He had studied the question of the resources of this country and found them
good. Those illimitable resources, if
rightly developed under a just and proper system of taxation, would enable tho
Province to support u population
three times larger than that of the
whale Dominion of Canada. (Applause),
Wo cannot, however, live on lino climate,
Italian skies uud such conditions. The
great living question of all intending
emigrants is: " How can a man make a
living thoro?" The only way to develop
those great resources and bring population to our shores is to have laws that
will allow of the land being put to its
legitimate-use, and discourage the holding of land from the people (applause)}
and tlie way to do thia would be to
abolish local aud municipal taxation
and mit sinttlo tax in tho place of it. We
would not then have pooplo, going •.emu..
the border in multitudes to seek homes
in the American Republic. Moro
factories, au increased railway system and greater population are what
wo want here. Not laws that, deliberately crush all efforts towards improvement and immigration. Let his
audience look for a moment at the condition of affairs in tho older communities aud consider what brought about
that condition. Many have not given
thought to the abstruse problems of
political economy, but are not the conditions under which we live hero
the same as those under which the
workingmen of New York, for instance,
live? And while we hope some day to
attain almost the opulence and prosperity of that mighty city let us beware
that wo do not gain also the awful legacy of woe that underlies the apparent
prosperity of "New York. Is tho condition of the workingmen in New York
better than that of their brethren in
British Columbia? In many respects
we are bettor off than tho workors of
that city or iu Paris or London. Now,
what wb want to find out is whether the
system of government in regard to taxation iu vogue in these cities is thesame as
we have here. If we find that the samo
system as we possess has produced the
effect wc have considered, it only proves
that we must prepare ourselves to undergo the same effects. We must in
time expect to have the same amount
of crime, destitution, poverty, despair
and misery that iiave attended the
workings of this system elsewhere.
If we are better off hero to-day than
thu workingniQii of New York city it
is surely because onr advantages
arc greater, than that we aro
better as men. But who can
gainsay the assertion that the working
people of this favored Province will be
just as badly off as they aro in tho older
countries when they reach their stage of
development?
After a careful study of the present
system of taxation he could say that if in
ten years this country would possess a
population of 500,000 he would get right
out of it, for under thut system it will
be just as poor a place to live in as London, New York or Toronto. Aud the
cause wns not far to sec. If all those
people came here in the time ho had
specified the land would rise enormously in valuo, wageB would go down,-tho
oompatitlon in overv line of trade would
become ruinous, the profitB would become loss, bankrupts, paupers and
criminals would then follow us they
have followed in the course of the ays-
tern of taxation that rules the world to-
day.and the advantages, gains nnd spoils
of the few would become the ruin ot the
masses.
It is the privilege of many under
under the present system of taxation to
rob and steal ns much as they can lay
bunds on, and that such a system is inimical to the best interests of the human
raco needs no telling. When loud here
that is worth $500, becomes worth from
$25,000 to $00,000, the holder of that
land will be ablo to enjoy that vast sum
by merely paying his taxes on it. So
long as tfie taxes are paid the owner
can do as ho pleases with it. He might
have beon away on a ten years' spree
and yet, his tuxes paid, he could come
here and take $00,000 out of tho pockets
of the working classes by taking that
land, for it is nothing less than downright
robbery to permit such a state of things.
Tho single-tax advocates havo been
called revolutionists, anarchists, socialists, nnd many other hard names, but
just as true as it is that injustice is being
done the masses of mankind just as suro
is it that the theory ho advocated must
prevail.   (Prolonged applause).
As singlo-tax advocates thoy believed
that that system if put fairly into operation would in timo regulate society aud
procure for, the working clasBca those
rights and advantages which have been
withheld from them so long. (Applause).
They aimed to abolish an atrocious system that was grinding down tho masses
until the oppression was Incoming unbearable. But thoy had not au unkind
word to say against those who participated in tho benefits of tho present system. The system that permits it is unjust
and ought to be destroyed by the popular
voto of this country (applause). Single
tax aimed to piece everybody on an
equal footing in regard to land. He did
not argue that the land should lie sliced
up and a slice given to evory man ovor
21 yoars of ago. But surely every human
being had au equal right to the earth
which was the common gift of the beneficent Creator of all (applause).
Lot tho valuo accruing from population return to the population by way of
the public revenue (applause); and not
allow individuals to fatten on the very
blood of the people, nor thoso glaring inequalities exist In society that disgrace
the world to-dav (great applause and
cheers). In Victoria this kind of inequality existed, and tho eloquent speaker then gavo a notable instance of a man
who held land which enjoyed an immense accession in value by building
and enterprise going on around it, and
said that the million .dollars he drew
from that land was a million dollars
never earned. The aristocracy in England did exactly tho same thing. They
coolly took things that belonged to the
people and to which tho aristocracy had
no right, and if tho present system wero
allowed lo continue we should soon havo
hero all the abominable injustice and
robberv under which tho old world
groniiBJ through this blighting aristocracy. Tho millions that they steal
ghould go to the people and until those
vast appropriations go to tho people labor
is robbed and commerce hindered iu its
enterprise. .(Applause.) He wished
earnestly tu impress upon the people of
this country tho necessity of keeping
back from thia, their adopted land, the
troubles that havo disturbed the peace
of the older countries.
Mr. West then criticised tho aristocracy of England in a powerful and incisive manner, showing the contemptible character of pampered idlers such
as the aristocracy were, feeding like bo
many vampires on the heart's-blood of
tho "common" people. But for landlordism Ireland would be undoubtedly
one of the fairest places on the faco of
(Sod's earth to-day. (Applause.) Irish
landlordism was one of the blackest
stains on English policy to-day.  (Ap
plause.) If his hearers were men, they
would rise up and say that IlWtfsli Columbia shall not be cursed by unjust
taxation. (Great cheering and applause.) Look at thut inagniiiceotcustle
yonder on the hill behind (lie City of
Victoria, cried the speaker; think of it.
For the window glass alone, $10,000; for
the frescoing alone, $30,000; and the
hundreds of thousands of dollars for
material. Yes, Dunsmuir l .astlo, Indies
and gentlemen; when finished it will be
the most gorgeous palace in all the
broad Dominion of Canada. Jiut would
you see the contrast? Would von see
tho other side of this splendid picture?
Then go and look upon the miserable,
battered, broken-down hovels of the
miners at Wellington. (Great applause.)
That ia the counterpart—luxury and
misery. And then think of the evictions
that are to take place there next week.
If you cannot see the truo manifestation
of aristocracy in all this tangle of splendor and squalor, magnificence and
misery, you must lm blind indeed (hear,
hear, and applause). Such a system as
ho had described produced such inequalities, and that abominable system should
be wliied out of the existence of human
things (applause). Some people will
tell you that poverty is the result of
drunkenness, inability, bad Government,
etc. But, although these have a little
to do with it, the real trouble is elsewhere. Take, for'-example, tho city of
New York; the poor peoplo of that city
nay ai.nually $100,000,000,and for what?
Wny, for the,privilege of living ovor tho
land ou which New York is built, for
the privilege of living on Manhattan
Island which was given by God, with
tho rest of the earth, to all men. How
can the people of New York be otherwise than poor under such a system us
they have? The poor people of New
York are mulcted annually in the enormous sum of $100,000,000, and how?
Simply by the system of taxation under
which they live at present. Until tho
fundamental error in the system, ia removed we can never hope tor a juat and
equitable state of human society. A
quarter of a century ago it wua the'boast
ofthe United States of America that
democracy had at length found realization for its golden dreams in that country, and she welcomed emigrants of all
lands to her shores. The United States
was held up to show what democracy
could do. In those days there was not
a millionaire, a tramp, a pauper or a
soup house in the land. But what do
wo find to-day? Look at the overcrowded tenement houses of New York
city, tho paupers, the tramps, the soup
houses aud the well-filled prisons, with
hundreds of thousands of willing mon
und women out of employment. They
cannot earn u living although they have
political and religiouB liberty and democracy. Why? Simply and solely
because their system of taxation is exactly the same us that in use in the old
European countries, which also possess
ull those evils.
Protection is uo solution uf this question, nor yet is free trade. If you want
to see poverty in its most appalling form
go to the lanes and by-ways of free trade
Great Britain. Neither of these issues
can solve this problem. Nothing but
educating the rulers and tlie people to
the justice and the practicability of the
single-tax remedy. [Applause].- Tho
late political campaign hud taught somo
valuable lessons, and among the successful candidates were to be found champions of the single-tax theory who would
ably contend for it. The three members
in Victoria who endorsed single tax had
been elected by handsome majorities.
The feeling in this city seems to be to
drive outdeeayednnd effete conservatism
by electing a man who will stand up aud
fearlessly express his . thoughts;
a man who is pledged to
battle the wrongs aud injustice that exist now and boldly expose the frauds and
shams of a power that, though still
strong, in luipplly .tottering to its full already. [Tremendous applause.] These
things ure not accidents. They nre the
results of the inner workings of society
to-dny; they show the working of tho
popular mind, and it is only a question
of a very short time when the popular
voto will control the alfairs of this
country.   (Applause.)
There is much in the present Bystein
of taxation that produces corruption,
keeps back enterprise and industry and
destroys all that is good in the efforts
of the working people. Wo need laws
that have more morality und less deception; more justice tb the poor uud
less favor to tho rich. And the reason
single tax men nre so much in earnest
is because they believe that the acceptance of their theory would produce a
better state of tiling's. This grand sympathetic principle is universal in its
working, it recognises in every man a
brother, no matter of what country,
creed or color. Workingmen must get
hold of its grand principles, of the
single tax idea; buiy all old prejudices,
bitter national hates and bend their
enorgioB ou reaching the goal that will
place the fundamental principles on a
practical working basis throughout the
world.
He did not believe in war; no true believer iu the single tax theory did.
Were that theory accepted iu the whole
it would do away with those complex
things that bring about wars. He firmly
believed in that grand thing that
would one day come upon tho world
and shed its blessed light in all
lands, namely the brotherhood of mankind, irrespective of sect, nation or
creed. They did not hope to carry
thoso things out in a day. No, there is
much opposition to contend with. Their
opponents say the single tax men ure
revolutionists and wish to bring anarchy
nnd chaos upon the world; these are
some of the accusations hurled ut the
promulgators of this theory. It is not
possible to bring the mutter into instuu-
taneous working; it must bu step by
step nnd it will bo done so peacefully as
tocauso no upheaval in society. Public ojiinion will becotuu slowly educated
ou these advanced points until Ihe final
barrier ia thrown duwn. Ho hnd not
hoped to make Instantaneous converts
of nnv of his nudience but he did hope
thnt lie hnd induced them tu study the
question and apply it aa men notuutcd
by feelings of benevolence toward their
fellows. He begged them to think carefully ovor the matter und he felt certain that they would meet a good deal
of difficulty in pointing out a single defect in tho system. Honest discussion
was what was wanted. He would fnr
rather have a man come forward and
say the single tax theory wus a robbery
and a fraud than that ho should say
nothing at all. He wanted it discussed
ovorvwhero and hoped soon to see it become a living reality in the affairs ofthe
human race.
Vory hearty and prolonged nppluusu
greeted tho close of tho able lecture and
it wns very evident that Mr. West had
made a deep impression on his hearers.
The chairman then introduced Mr.
Foster, the lately elected senior membor
for Nanalmo District. Mr. rTostor was
a by no means insignificant member of
the' great Independent party (great
applause) that had beon formed throughout the country nnd ho would render a
good account of himself in the House.
('    '
Applause).
Mr. Fof
ostor received a hearty greeting
ou coming forward to speak;* he is n
tall, fine looking, intelligent young man
and is a Iliumt, humorous and telling
speaker, with a clear ringing voice and
good elocutionary powers. He suid lie
was iu poor condition for sneaking us he
had a sovore cold. He had been a believer in single tax for a long time and
thought it a just and fair system of raising revenue, because no one part of the
population pays it while another does
not. If ono man lived lu ease and idleness without labor ho most undoubtedly
does so indirectly at the expense of those
who do labor. II is idleness is supported
by the hard work of. the people. (Applause.) Men who had been allowed
to appropriate immense tracts of land,
as, for instance, Astor, Hobhouse and
the Duke of Westminster, did no work
(laughter and applause); they don't
have to work tor a living (renewed
laughter), and they don't (roars of laughter). They just don't do anything and
that state of things had existed so long
that peoplo called it all right now (great
laughter and applause). These people
objected to being questioned about such
matters; they didn't like it nil, but he
wua one of those who questioned tnem
and he wub proud of it (great applause).
Single tax men do not wish to be personal but they had to be sometimes.
Tho coal miners of Nanaimo had elected
hipi to the Houae. Ho never sought
nomination, but the miners gavo it to
him because they knew he was a single
tax man and that is why ho waa elected,
(applause). The Dunsmuir family had
obtained a large portion of coal land
under tlio crown grant system in consideration nf building it little streetcar lino
lo Xaualnm (laughter and applause);
and the Dunamiiirs had done just as
they chose about that coal, sold it at $10
a tun, whereas if the proper people had
hud hold of it tho coal would havo been
sold at ita proper price which he believed was about $0 per ton. The Duns-
muir'a had built a eastle with tho money
they hud thus' obtained. It was
a very tine place, no doubt, but if anyone wanted to see the other side of the
story let him go and see tho hovels of
the miners at Wellington. There was
quite a difference there: to use the saying, you "could sling a cat through between the boards" of these miserable
shanties. (Laugliter.) So much wealth as
theDuiiBtnuirs had gave a man a chance
to corrupt the Legislative Assembly.
Probably Borne of his hearers had heard
the story of how one of Mr. Dunsinuir's
nbject supporters or flunkies in the House
mistaking Borne measure of Mr. Dunsinuir's for one of the other side, roBe and
was making a most vehement speech
against it when his master rose and
shouted, "Sit doon, ye havorin' body,
■sitdoon!" fRoarB of laughter.] And
that indiscreet supporter did not Btand
upon the order of his sitting, but sat
down very suddenly. [Renewed roara
of laughter.] And again, the
vexed queation of the Chinese working
m the mincB often came up, but there
was no getting them out of the mines,
because the old gentleman said they
wero not to go.   [Laughter.]
There were acres nnd acres of thiB valuable coal laud shut off from use and the
same could be said nbout tho farming
lands, shut off from settlement The
minors thought it wns high time this
kind of thing should be stopped, and he,
for one, made no bones about it, but
went boldly into the very stronghold and
told them so. [Applause]. But you
have elected a man who is fur more capable of fighting that clique down there
than I am. And I am sure that he will
see that no more coal or o.ther landB ure
given nway under the same system without knowing the reason why. iTromen-
dous applause.] Why, when tho conl
companies shut down, the business of
the country Is at a standstill. By allowing people to hold any land out of
use we nre just building up an ariato-
crucy.
Mr. Poster wua heartily cheered at the
finish of his umusing and able address
and a vote of thanks was then passed to
Mr. West for his lecture and another to
Mayor Brown for his kindness in occupying the chair. Both gentlemen replied
suitably, the latter saying thnt to his
mind single tnx looked the most promising thing in political economy he has
seen for u long time.
The meeting quietlv dispersed nbont
10 o'clock.

Nkw YintK, Juno 20.—Advices from
Belize, British Honduras, of June 13,
sny: For a fow montliB past the colony
of British Honduras, as well as the
neighboring republics, have been afflicted by a disease which, while said by
some reports not to bo yellow fever, ib
yet so terrible in its character as to kill
without exception everyone whom it attacks. There was great excitement and
anxiety in Belize yesterday morning,
when it was seen that the steamship
Aguuu, which arrived during tho night
from tho south, wus flying the yellow
flag und was lying in the quarantine
division. Everyone who can do so is
leaving Honduras for England or the
United States. New Orleans is closed as
tight as a drum against British and
Spanish Honduras, aud if au outbreak
should occur on the Aguun there will be
nu way of getting out of the country except by way of Mexico, which will mean •
a long, tedious and expensive trip. At
Cayo, about seventy-five miles northwest of Belize, it is reported that the
people are dying like sheep; and the
worst part of it is that nobody knows
what the disease is. The European doctors call it yellow fover, but the American medical men differ with them. The
only thing, therefore, positively known
is that iu tlte course of fivo or six days it
kills almost overybody whom it attacks,
and tho survivors are Bimply asking
themselves wlio.se turn will come next.

THE "SINGLE TAX.'
• Those who listened to the lecture of
Mr. West Inst night, knowing anything
of the question which he had for his
subject, would not have heard anything
startlingly new; thoso who hnd never
considered the question before would have
got a fair insight into the general principles of the "single tax," and the objects and aims of its advocates and promoters, iu the lucid exposition of the
subject by the-lecturer. Thoy would bo
convinced, undoubtedly, too, that the
"single tax" agitation was by no menus
without a reason for its existence, and
also that, to use a slightly slang but apt
expression, it has "come to stay," and
slowly but surely win its way, we might
add, without going very deeply into the
"prophesying business." The foregoing
are merely observations of what we take
to be patent facts in tho field of social
und political phenomena. Any unprejudiced interpreter of the signs of the
times must, we think, come to similar
conclusions.
Ab to whether the outlook is an alarming nnd forbidding, or n reassuring and
hopeful, one is another Question,
Modern civilization, we believe, is yet a
long way from accepting tho doctrine
which appears to lie at the very root of
the "single tax" theory, to wit, the doctrine of the immorality of ownership in
laud. But the curt, almost brutal, argument of other reforms and other reformers might bo advanced here: So much
the worse for modern civilization. And,
looking at the question as nearly aB possible from the impartial standpoint of a
disinterested spectator, it does not follow
that the preconceived notions and
habitual customs of modern civilization
—which are largely, in this respect,
the notions and customs that havo been
inherited for generations and ages—are
right notions and customs: every
thoughtful person will be prepared to
admit that thoy might possibly be wrong,
in spite of their venerableness and general acceptation. The doctrine of the
Abolitionists, that slavery waB wrong,
thnt man had no right to property in
mun, was deemed monstrous and subversive hy one-half the people of the
United States, not bo many years ago;
but that tune was changed, literally,
with a vengeance, and slavery was abolished by the strong arm of an indignant
and aroused people, without compensation to those who arrogated to themselves vested rights lu their fellow mon.
If, ns the " single tax" theorists hold,
ownership in land infallibly leads to,
and actually produces, the cruol and
demoralizing enslavement of the many
to the few—that its inevitable tendency
is to make the rich richer and the poor
poorer—and that it is thus primarily
responsible for the grent bulk of the
existing destitution, pauperism, nnd
consequent misery, and for the glaring
inequalities in worldly conditions, that
are so painfully apparent to all, who
shall eay that modern civilization—
which Is undeniably progressive—shall
not, some day In the no distant future,
revise its code of social and political
morality, even to the shattering of somo
of its dearest and most tenaciously held
idols, which, moreover, have all tho
sanction and authority of having been
enthroned for centuries.
The "bottom" theory, bo to speak,
of the "single taxera" ia unmistakably
revolutionary, it must be confessed, although the lecturer assured his audience
lust night thnt their intentions were
not. Step by step, littlo by little, he
said, was the policy of the disciples of
Henry George iu having his principles
put into practice in the field of social
and political economy. This resolve,
we must say, ia a wise one, and, if ad'
hered to, cannot fail of securing in time
a fair test for theories, from the
practical operation of which
much is promised by their
dent and enthusiastic advocates. Thnt such a test Bhould not be
given, we cannot Bee that any fair
minded person, impartially surveying
tho whole question, ' would attempt to argue. If there is nothing iu
the "single tax," that fact would soon
be brought out hy tho actual working of
the theory; if there is one-half In it
thnt Is claimed for it by its enthusiastic
advocates, society us u whole ought to
have the udvautage of its operation,
however much the piurocrutic element
might fret and fume. No harm, at any
rate, but much good, will come from the
fullest and freest public discussion of
the theory and principles of "single
tax." There is, hid input ably, n crying
need throughout tho whole civilized world for the reforms
and for the benlits to humanity which
its advocates say it will bring about.
TheBO claims are, therefore, worthy of
the careful consideration of overy philanthropic person. If the theory nnd
the principles of tbe "single tax" nre
true and wholesome nnd just, they will
expand and flourish in the light; if
tho contrary, they will wither away,
By all means, let the light oi public discussion nnd impartial criticism be
turned full upon thia, aB upon every
other question that affects the public interest and the welfare of humanity fn
general.    ^^^^^^^^^
anyhow?  Do you not get your share
—the Mlon's share'—of the appropriations?  You can not complain of
any injustice in this respect.  Why
can you not trust your paternal Government, then, to look after your interests in the future, even though you
have not got your just share of representation, much aB the court takes
the undefended prisoner under its
wing? Your fair representation which
1 we have been unable to give you,
' you will thus see, is like Reynard's
' sour grapes, it is not worth having
1 you will get as large appropriations
' from the public purse with half a
' dozen representatives iu the House, as
1 if you had twice that number."
The foregoing is a fair paraphrase of
what the Premier said on the point in
question, a little over two months ago,
in the House. It was doubtless intended
to be conciliating; superficially looked
at, it was plausible; closely enquired
into, it was Insulting.   It assumed that
the large and Intelligent electorate of the
entire Lower Mainland had not a thought
in politics above the low plane of " the
loaves and fishes;" thnt they were
willing to be serfs, bound hand and foot,
to the gross demon of " thk appropriations ;" that beyond that, they had uo
desire     to     have      their     proper
voice in   the   genoral legislation of
the country, nor a care as to who governed the country, how long they might
continue to govern it,or how it was gov
erued.na a whole. We do not Bay that the
Premier foresaw the fnll significance of
his unworthy plea, nor that, under the
StntltB to which ho felt kluiactt icduml,
he was wholly responsible for the deplorable apology which he produced at
the time, or the sentiments which it
contained; but we would call attention
to the low character of political morality
which such indications infallibly show
must permeate, if not saturate, tho "powers that be" in the Province to-day.
We are moved more, particularly to
challenge this one-time proposition of
the Premier, that fair representation is
mereld n sentiment, from a consideration of the very striking fact, brought
conspiciously to the front by the recent
Provincial elections, and which any one
can verify for himself, that the Government of the day is supported only by a
very small minority of the voting population of the Province, and yet it will
have u majority in the House, according
to the latest returns, of from four to six.
And, just think of It, gentle reader, Alberni, which polled 41 votes, and elected
a Government supporter by a majority
of 17, will have just as much voice iu
the House, and in the legislation of tho
country, and in the constitution of the
Government—dependent, to some extent, of course, upon the calibre nnd
capacity of the individual who represents its suffrages—as New Westminster
City, which polled 851 votes, and returned an Independent representative
by a majority of 2091 Pretty concrete
"sentiment" involved in the question of
fair representation, iB there not?

Time-Extravagance lo Hair Or-
nmuentH and Necklaces,
Three fifths of the diamonds of the
United States aro owned hy New York
and Washington loaders of society, says
tho Washington Post. Diamonds are
worth more to-day than they havo heen
in a long whllo. In tho past four months
tho finer qualities have advanced nearly
twonty-flvo por cent., owing to the
manipulations of a London trust, whioh
governs tbe African and India mines.
American womon wear their diamonds
at certain social gatherings and tho
opera with less fear perhaps than the
ladies of any other nationality. Thero
is always something about an American*
born woman showing her free and fearless-going way in life, which is remark*
ably noticeable, and particularly when
soon In any other country. Leading
Washington society women go about
covered with diamonds and other precious goms. The fashion in diamonds
is constantly changing. Tho taste of
Americans Is becoming highly educated
upon precious gems, and their purchases
ombraco tho finest that tho market affords. In the wonderful collection of
diamonds and other precious gems of
Mrs. Loland Stanford, Mrs. Senator
Hearst, Mrs. Morton, wifo of Vice-President Morton, and Mrs. Jones, of No-
vudn, It is observed thut tho time lias
arrived when largo pieces or designs are
In vogue.
Wearing diamonds is an art. At present It is considered perfectly proper and
correct to surround tho neck with ono
oi'moro necltlaeos of diamonds or several strings of pearls with one handsome diamond necklace, from which
thoro should bo a pendant. Tho center
stono of thia pendant should bo a gem
of any other color or nature, elthor a
ruby, emerald, sapphire, black pearl or
a canary diamond of unquestionable
color, encircled or ornamentally surrounded by blue-white brilliants.
Tho latter is a stono which is growing vory fashionnblo, and any private
collection without this beautiful diamond is not lip to date. The decoration
of tho wrist should consist of a bracelet
with a center stone surrounded hy smaller diamonds. On tho left wrist a collection of bracelets is in order, to entirely surround tho wrist or only half
way, and consisting of diamonds. rubioa,
omeralds und sapphires. Caro should
always he taken that the bracelets are
mounted so that they lay close to each
other to form a small eulT.
Itis the correct thing at largo dinners
or othor stato occasions to. wear aa many
rings as a lady may feel inclined to, or
her parurc of jewels will permit, on
both hands. Thero was an Idea that tho
thumb ring would become fashionnblo,
but that seems to have passed. Hair ornaments are becoming more extravagant in their designs all lho time, as it
is ono of tho most conspicuous places to
display a handsome star or sunburst, or
agrnml and imposing tiara of '.Uamonds.
A very beautiful effect is produced by
wearing a number of small brooches
around the edge of a decollete. Leaders of fashion in the precious gems
should always bear in mind to wear
stones that harmonize in color with
their stylo of dress. A lady wearing
white or black bas tho advantage over
those wearing bright, and fancy colors,
as her jewels need not consist entirely
of ono kind.
Cutting diamonds is one thing iu
which this country is ahead of any
othor nation. .It has been mado a close
Study and without doubt is an art.
Thoro is more beauty and brilliancy obtained from tho American cut diamond
than tbe diamond which is cut In Holland and has what Is called tbe "old
Dutch cut," and usually is found to bo
of a somewhat square shape, rather irregular and many small fascots.
Americans cut thom perfectly round and
with only sixty-four fascots to tho tablo.
A great many heavy purchasers of
diamonds and tho general public labor
under the impression that diamonds are
purchased cheaper in London or Paris
than horo. This is not tbo case, tbo
greatest and tho cheapest diamond market of the world to-day boing New York
City.
The finest diamonds and tho largest collections aro owned hy the differont courts
pf Europe, and many of theso stones aro
bf such'enormous size that thoy can
not he displayed to any advantage upon
the person of a handsome woman. Thoro
i no particular beauty connected with
uom, and what makes thom so prom-
lent is their overestimated value and
QUEER TRANSACTIONS.
The people of Independence town-
hip. Warren County, N. J., voted to pay
bounty of fifteen cents eaob for
round-bog tails, and now tho township
.•asury Is bankrupt.
A step-son of a Mequon (Wis,) farmer
itely forced tbe latter hy law to keep a
romiso made to him in boyhood tbat If
i would remain at work on the farm
i would at some future period deed to
m forty acres of land.
A parmer near Chanute, Kan., sold a
Bf for two oents a pound to a butcher,
peeing to take a quarter of it for his
irn uso The butcher charged him rug-
ir rates for the beef, and whon thoy
ttled the farmer owed him two dollars.
A woman of Denver sued hor husband,
bo Is living In Omaha, for 8100,000

ishand desertod her in 1884, and that
fevious to that time they bought aomo
Ind together In Wyandotte County,
ia.. for 83,000, and that this proporty
now worth 8300,000.

Diamond! Departing*
Ie most prominent jewelers now ad*
that even the diamond soltnlre oar-
Phas almost departed.   Many fash*
Ible women with earrings worth a

Mr. Geo. Meade sent some superb
specimens of succulent strawberries to
this office to-day. Their appearance and
flavor wero beyond praise and the way
they disappeared from our table " hate

The sturgeon fishermen are having
great luck at present, tbo catch being
excellent. No sturgeon weighing 1,000
lbs. haB been caught, so far this year, but
several weighing between 500 and 000
lbs. havo been hooked, and thoso nro
considered fairly good fishing.
The strawberry festival and entertainment last night by the Ladies Auxiliary
of tbo Y. M. C. A. was a decided success in every way. The attendance was
large, tho entertainment good and tho
strawberries aud cream really excellent.
A verv enjoyable evening was spent,
nnd when tho hour for dispersing came
the only rogrct of the audience was that
no attempt bad been made to duplicate
the allowance of berries and cream.
Tlie last number of the Dominion Illustrated is largely devoted to the Royal
Visit, there being fine views of the Arrival of tbo Abyssinian at Vancouver,
B. C, of Stanley Parkin that city and
its striking bridge that len<ln to it, of tbe
Decorated Engine tbat drew the Royal
Party over the mountains, of the Inspection "of tbe CndotB and tbe Lacrosse
Match at Montreal, and other illustrations. The view or Stanley Park, which
tho Duke of Connaught so much admired, is very effective, and the other
pictures aro correspondingly good.
PresbyteriaiiB will appreciate the ltor-
trait of the Rev- Dr. Laing, Moderator
ofthe General Assembly. Tbe next issue of The Dominion Illustrated will be a
special Victoria number, aud will be
unusually interesting. Address: The

Joined  In Wedlock,
A very pleasant event took place last
night at tlie residence of Mr. Geo. Gilley,
Agnes streot. It was the marriage of
Mr. W. II. Kelly, one of ourwell-kuown
merchants, to Miss M. A. Gilley, a
young lady highly esteemed by a large
circle of friends,   The ceremony  wns
Serfonned by the Rev. Mr*. Best, of
Uvet Baptist church, in tho presence
of a large number of friends of the contracting parties. After the wedding the
company sat down to a handsome spread,
when the healths of tho bride and bride
groom were drunk aud responded to,
and a very pleasant evening wns spent.
The happy couple left for Victoria this
morning ou their wedding trip, Thk
Columbian extends congratulations.
The Cricket Match.
It was nearly noon when tho Vancouver-Westminster cricket match commenced. Vancouver went to bnt first,
Coleman and Clinton opening tho ball.
These were soon returned to tho grand
stand without scoring, nnd thou the defence of tho wickets fell to Griffiths
and Mackay, who proved very stubborn
batsmen to deal with. They hammered
the leather all over the field, and acted
generally us if they intended to stick to
the wickets until sundown. Griffith's
batting was something far above the
average, and it was easy to seo by his
skilful handling of tho willow that he
was far removed from the rank- of
amateur. After making the handsome
score of 44 he wns run out by underestimating the ability of one of the opposing team to stop a hot ball. Mackay
made a fine stand, and retired gracefully
after piling up 23 well-earned runs,
Thon Oreerv and Halton took the willow nnd did some successful, hut rathor
reckless play. Something over a hundred runs mul been made before the
fifth wicket fell, and tbo bats to follow
almost as expert as thoso which had
gone beforo. The last indications were
that the match would not he over bv
nightfall.
Clever Capture.
Yesterday afternoon when the talonteil
young Victoria thief, Sawyer, was captured he was put in the local baslNe on
Provost street for safe-keeping. Tho
jailor put the prisoner in the main room
and left him without handcuffs or manacles. Sawyer, ns might bc expected
from his name, is protty sharp and it
took him only a short timo to find out
tbat one of the iron bam at tlio window
of tbo guard-room could bo pushed up
into the woodwork above. It took him
a much shorter time to execute the
mam.'liver and in the twinkling of an
eye he had hoisted the window, climbed
ovor the wood shed and was going
whistling down the street us free us air.
But young Willie Moresby spied Mr,
Sawyer and feeling suro that ho ought
not to bc enjoying the fresh air quite so
much wentand gave tho alurm. Asearch
for Sawyer was immediately instituted.
Officer Dominy received certain hints of
information which induced him to go
and search among tho Chinese dens
down in tbe swamn. Entering a largo
house in that locality tho officer enquired for bis man but could get no
satisfaction from tbe Chinaman. A
Siwash finally came forward und nfter
pointing out tbe dark corner iu which
Sawyer lay, run oil' like mad, followed
by every Chinaman in the houso. Officer Dominy put tbe braceletb on his
firisonor and hauled him oil' to tho
ock-un. Sawyer says thnt un ovepow-
ering desiro to smoke opium, a habit of
whioh he is n hopeless devotee, induced
him to break jail. He wns sufoly lodged
in nn inner coll of the lock-up, tightly
handcuffed, and will ho sent to Victoria
at tbe earliest opportunity.
Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla.
Tlte Accident   Which Befell n limiting
Tarty In Their Search for
Pleniure,
There are those who aver solemnly
and with every appearance of truth that
an excursion on a steam launch is one
of tbe most enjoyable and exciting pleasures modern engineering science has
given to humanity. It is claimed that
it is Bimply delicious to loll back in a
nicely cushioned seat, with an occasional
dive into the plump basket of edibles,
and take in tne ever-varying scenery
presented in a nautical cruise in these
parts, while the steam launch plows
steadily abend with all the ease and
grace of a thing of life. These are said
to be some of the attractions and
beauties of the idle amusement; but the
colors may be too brightly drawn, and
imagination is sometimes* permitted, to
fill in tbo dark background with brighter
and more lively tints than the original
of the picturo deserved.
One of theso delightful excursions took
plnce yesterday, and a most deliciously
exciting event it proved. Tbe planner
and designer of the cruise was a clerical
gentleman who is well-known us a good
sailor, and the excursionists wero made
up of six of Westminster's youth and
beauty; young ladles not at all afraid of
wetting their pretty little feet, nnd jolly
companions, every one, for a cruise
of this sort. It wub ' just 2:80
o'clock when tbe little launch was
shoved away from the slip, and the coal
oil engine was given carte blanche to produce just ns much speed us it ■wished.
Merrily tbo little craft puffed up stream,
and cheerily the voices of the young
Indies ami their conductor wafted shore-
wards and tinkled in the ears of tho
envious young men who had not beeu
included in the list of invitations, hut
who woul<l Imvo given hall of   .heir nn-
nual stipend to have been along. Round
Herring's Point the launch grucefnlly
curved, and Liverpool, the rising city of
the south shore came into view. Its
advantages, fine situation and future
prospects were given a passing eulogy,
nnd then tbe nose of the little craft was
headed direct for ^ie Bon Accord cannery, which was reached in good time.
After admiring the handsome young
fishermen, nnd indulging in a general
complimentary discussion ou the life of
the ''bold fisherman," the party landed
and with thoir escort made their way up
to tbe celebrated Fraser River Hatchery.
This institution being vacant and uninteresting the party went a few hundred
feet furtlier inland to view the beauties
of the littlo stream which supplies the
hatchery with pure and limpid water to
batch its progeny. The sweet little
brook is spanned by a single plank
and on this frail footing one ofthe most
venturesome of the young ladies stepped to watch the sweet little fishes as
thoy shot about und every now and
then jumped clear of the water In worthy
efforts to catch tbe occasional mosquito
that ventured to the water to wet its
parched bill. Suddenly a mighty
scream rent the air, und the startled
party had scarcely time to turn nbout
when an awful splash followed by a
lushing of the waters told the talc that
tho plucky young lady had taken an impromptu bath. The water, fortunately,
wus not deep, aud the escort of the party
managed without much trouble to land
the young lady safely, though terribly
wet and for nil the world looking liko
one of Neptune's most beautiful daughters. A circle was instantly formed
round tho unfortunate, and a wringing
out process wus inaugurated und finally
brought to a successful close. Then the
party wandered back to the launch, and'
a few minutes later the helm wan guiding the little craft Into the mouth of the
romantic Coqultlam a little distance up
which, the escort said, was scenery
moBt delightful. But a bar in the shape
of a boom of logs closed the way and the
little vessel was forced to come
to n standstill. Disappointment ran high, nud the Indies
generally deprecated the using of tbo
pretty waters of the Coquitlnm for storing "those nasty Bticks." However, tlio
escort wns not going to allow the boom
to interfere with the pleasure of the fair
ones, and finding an opening in the togs
through which he thought tho launch
might be made to go, he took a pole aud
endeavored to shove the craft through the
jam. But the pole was weak ami it suddenly snapped, and like a shot tbe conductor of tho excursion disappeared under the water. Then a chorus of
.screams were set up which sturtlcd the
peaceful Indians in their village, a mile
distant, nud such commotion has not
been seen on any vessel for many years.
It was not long, however, until tbe escort appeared between two logs, and a
few minutes later he was got sufely
aboard again. Then the craft was
steered for the str. Western Slope,which
lies anchored in the Coquitlnm, where
tbe wringing out process wns again gone
through, By this time it wns getting
quite late in the day, and it wus decided
to make Btruight for home; but by some
strange mistake the bearings were lost,
nnd the excursionists had gone several
miles further up the Fraser before it wns
discovered that the vessel was out of her
course. The mistake being rectified, tho
party was soon on the correct homeward path, and shortly after 0 p.in.,cold
and hungry, the excursionists- found
themselves safely landed within tho
limits of the Royal City again. And
overy one of these ladies declare stoutly
to-day that they hod a "perfectly delightful time/'	
A Fine Aotreii.
Keene's company of players, with Miss
Caroline Gage as leading lady made
their ilrst appearance before a Portland
audience at the New Pnrk theatre lust
night in the beautiful drama, "Queenu,
Manager Howe must certainly have
thought lust night that tlie Portland
public had not entirely forgotten him,
by the way they poured into tho theatre,
Limn before 8 o'clock the house wus
packed, and ut 8 o'clock the sign " standing room only" was put out. Even this
did not restrain the crowd, and soon tho
gallery wus filled with ladles and their
escorts, and a number of people who
camo lato and could get no seats, wero
obliged to go home and come earlier
some other evening during the week.
" tjucena" has been played in Port-
laud several times, so tlmt tho plot is
pretty woll known to most people. Tho
play, however, bus so many pleasing
points uud pretty scenes that it hns always been n favorite. Although it is
classed as au emotional dramn, there is
much quiet pathos and real lifo in it.
The fltory of a woman's love, no matter
how old and oft repeated, for the husband of her heart, seems to strike u responsive chord in human naturo that
will last as long as men live nnd women
love.
Miss Gage's portrayal of the character
of Queenu was certainly a revelation to
tho audience. Coming almost unannounced, it was hardly expected to see
the performance that wns given. Tho
lady is tbe fortunate possessor of n very
handsome fnco and figure, and in addition possesses talent rarely given to
womuu. Her acting in the mad scene
of the fourth net was such as will entitle
her to recognition in any clime us nn
artiste of ability. Her conception of tho
injured wife in the fifth net, nnd nlso
the reconciliation wns excellent, nud the
recourse to handkerchiefs among tho
audience showed their appreciation of
her efforts. Miss Gage was honored
with most vociferous upplnuse during
tho evening nnd was called before the
curtain at the ond of the fourth not.'

Another Content Frolmlile,
Politicians iu thia city are authority
for the statement tbnt tlio Into Provincial election in this city is to bc contested. Tbe exact grounds for the pro-
tent aro not yet clearly defined. One, it
is understood to be, is that some irregularity was made in connection with
tbe counting of the ballots by the election officials. The Victoria Times asserts that tho necessary deposit was to

a Setting Hen.

time residing in Binghampton, Broomo
County, N. Y„ and bad a considerable
amount of livestock, some poultry and
a superb setter dog. I tell you no was
a fine animal. I never see a dog with
such gentle ways. Gentlemen, you
could have pulled enough hair out of
that dog to stuff a sofa pillow and ho

dog found out that she was a settln' hen

set on them eggs himself tilt bo hatched
out nine chickens."
