A Large Meeting at Laugley and a
Lively Interest Manifested, but Owing
to Unavoidable Irregularities the Selection of Candidates Adjourned to
Thursday, June 5 th.--Speeches by ihe
Candidates.
The call for a District Convention at
Langley to select three candidates for
the "solid six" Independent ticket,
brought together in the Town Hall at
Langley, yesterday (Wednesday) after-
ternoon, May 28th, about tifty or sixty
people, from various parts of the District,
including most of the candidates.
Although nearly every municipality
and settlement in the District was represented, on account of the very short
time elapsing between the call and the
convention a majority of the delegates
had not been regularly appointed.
After Mr. John Maxwell, Reeve of
Langley mufc.cipality, had been unanimously called to the chair, and Mr.
Otway Wilkie chosen socretarv, a considerable discussion followed ub to
whether, under, the circumstances, the
meeting should proceed aB a regular
convention to the selection of candidates.
It was finally decided that the irregularities were too great to permit of this
being wisely and satisfactorily done.
Eight or more delegates, therefore, who
were properly accredited constituted the
convention for the time being, and
passed a resolution adjourning the convention until Thursday next, June 5th,
(after the nominations), at 1 p. in., at
tbe same place, for the selection of candidates from amongst thoBe nominated,
to run on the Independent ticket.
The secretary was instructed to give
due notice of thiB resolution to the different municipalities and settlements,
and it is expected that the adjourned
date will give sufficient time to enable
regularly appointed delegates to be present from every section of the District.
After these proceedings it was resolved
to merge the intended convention into a
public meeting, in which all present
could take part, and the District candidates present were invited to address
the audience.
Reeve Maxwell was ou motion, up-
pointed chairman of the .public meeting, and Mr. Otway Wilkie was requested to act as secretary.   l
The chairman then invited tho candi-
didateB present to take their seats upon
tlie platform or stage at"one end of the
hall, and Capt. Thompson nnd Messrs.
Kirkland. Henderson, Sword, Punch
and Sinclair filed on and took their
tats.
Just as the valiant suffrage-hunters
had got comfortably seated on a long
wooden bench in full view of the audience, a moat ludricuous incident occurred. An improvised calico curtain at
the front of the stage suddenly fell with
a bang, and shut out, not only the
"speaking countenances" of the solid
six," but their muddy boots as well,
from the expectant gaze of the eager
audience. Tlie curtain was slowly raised
on the second act, producing all the
spectacular effects (slightly modified) of
a variety or minstrel snow. The audience, as may be imagined, enjoyed this
unexpected diversion hugely, and the
candidates themselves chuckled audibly.
When the fun had subsided a motion
was passed limiting each speaker to
fifteen minutes, and the chairman called on Capt, Thompson, who sat at the
near end of the long bench aforesaid, to
address the audience first.
the candidates' speeches.
Capt. Thompson said he stood before
the audience as a candidate to represent
their interests in the Local House. He
stood pledged to uphold a fair and strict
redistribution of seats, population as
nearly as possible to form tho basis of a
new Redistribution Bill. He would insist on the balance of power theory
being done away with, ana would strive
for fair representation for all sections of
the Province, Mainland aud Island.
He thought the up-country members
had been unwisely and unnecessarily
alienated from the Lower Mainland,
and one of the first things to do was to
conciliate them, He trusted that men
would be elected from from Island constituencies who would be above doing
the Mainland an unfairness. The members for the Lower Mainland Bhould be
pledged to watch more vigilantly than
ever the interests of their constituencies,
because in tho next four years the fight
would certainly come. They must be
prepared to work shoulder to shoulder.
The speaker further stated that he was
in favor of dividing all the districts into
one member constituencies, and believed
that rural constituencies should have a
larger representation than cities. The
speaker stated lie was in accord with
the Government on all questions hut
redistribution.
The matter of opening up the agricultural lands of the Province was a most
important one and should receive more
attention than the Government had
given it. He would be in favor of borrowing money for that purpose, if required. He believed the wild land tax
should be increased, and would go so
far as to raise that tax to 26 cents an
acre. He would be very jealous of allowing the sale of large blocks of land to
companies where such land was of
value for agricultural purposes. He
would assist schemes for dyking, draining and reclaiming lands, where such
work was required, and, if elected, as ho
trusted to be, would leave no stone upturned to advance tbe interests of the
District in every way.   (Applause.)
Mr. Kirkland, coming next in order,
was then called on. He said It waB not
the first time he had addressed the people of the District as a candidate seeking
their suffrages. The last time, although
beaten, be had received a good vote.
The most important question undoubtedly agitating the public mind was the
redistribution question. He need scarcely say that the Dill passed at the last
session of the House could neither be
excused nor condoned. The idea seems to
have prevailed on Vancouver Island that
the Island Bhould have an increase of
representation wherever it was found
necessary to give a member to the Mainland. That principle was entirely opposed to the principles of free government. The theory would have to be
contested and fought inch by inch. The
only solution that the Bpeaker saw at
present waB that in the coming election
there might be a majority of
members returned who would rise
Buperlor to sectional matters and
work together ou patriotic principles,
and look at the matter in a broad statesmanlike manner. It would be generally conceded, he thought, that the policy
of tho present Government (with the
exception of the redistribution measure)
had been tolerably satisfactory to the
Province at large. He thought it was
quite compatible with the duties of a
representative to support the Government on general measures, but when
the question of redistribution came up
each member, irrespective of tho Government, Bhould make himself thoroughly
acquainted with tho subject to bring
such pressure to bear upon tho Government ns would bring about a just measure. Touching on other questions
the speaker thought the timber lands
were being disposed of at much less
than their real valuo; the system of
selling large lots of timber land to speculators should be put a stop to. With re-
Sird to borrowing money for opening up
ie country ho would be disposed to exorcise caution aud
consideration. The speaker stated that
he was an old pioneer in the distriot,
knew its wants and would do his utmost,
if elected, to further its interests.
Mr. Hy. Harris—Would you be prepared, in case the Government refused
to bring in and Btand by a fair and just
redistribution measure, to vote them
out of power?
Mr. Kirkland—I would do so.
Mr. J. C. Henderson was then called
on. He said that was the first occasion
on which he had spoken on
a political platform. At the earnest
request of a large number of voters in
his own part of the district he had consented to be a candidate. He was in
favor of the Government so far as he
might think the Government was right.
He might Bay that lie was independent.
We had a promise from the Government that next year the census would
be taken, and he believed that word
would be made good; if not his vote
would go to make it right. He was in
favor of schemes for the reclamation of
lands.
Mr. C. B. Sword, of Matsqui, took the
stand next. He had declared himself
as an Independent candidate. The
word had been objected to as meaning
on the fence. However, he did not intend to pledge himself to either the
Government or the Opposition. That
had always been his platform and attitude. The redistribution measure,
everyone considered to be a great injustice to tbe country. The bill had increased the members of the House by
six, instead of making a fair redistribution, and it was much more difficult
to take a member away from a constituency than to give it one. As regarded tbe action of the Premier, he
thought tho district would be very
foolish to return him as a member.
Should the Premier be returned to
power, and bring down measures for the
good of the country, he should have no
hesitation in giving him an independent
support.
Mr. James Punch, Reeve of Surrey,
spoke next. His position before the
electors was an Independent candidate.
Briefly, his platform,was: First, representation by population; second, dividing of the District into ridings; third,
?letting our just share of the revenue;
ourth,agrantfor a free traffic bridge
over the Fraser from the City of Westminster to Surrey; fifth, the prohibition
of Chinese immigration as much as possible. That was where he stood, and be
would not take up the time of the meeting any further on that occasion.
Mr. Marshall Sinclair was on the extreme end of the long bench, farthest
from the chairman, but his turn had
come at last. Mr. Sinclair said he was
placed at a disadvantage by the previous
speakers having exhausted the subject.
He would say in starting that he had
travelled pretty well all over the District, aid had seen much worth seeing,
and whether elected or not, he would
always think of his trip with kindly re-
ininisences. In a new country like this
there were a great many things to be
done that bid countries did not require.
His platform wasequalrights.Hethought
that the whole District had not got its
rights. All the candidates had come to
the conclusion that the redistribution
bill was not a just measure, and Mr.
Sinclair here quoted figures to show that
it was very unjust. The speaker supposed it would take a little time to remedy this matter, but, if elected, he would
always do his best to protect the rights
of the District. The farmers should be
encouraged and helped. They turned
the howling forests into the beautiful
and fertile plains. There were a great
many roads in the District-
Several voices—Where are they? We
can't find them.   (Sardonic laughter.)
That were impassible, Mr. Sinclair
went on to say (corroboration chuckles).
If he were elected he would go right
through the district and see what was
wanted. He was in favor of putting a
heavier tax on wild land, which would
encourage settlement. He wanted to
come right down and explain matters.
He had been successful in business in
WestmlnBter, and bad sold his business.
He had now the leisure time before him,
and, if elected would hustle for the
district for all he was worth.
Mr. A. M. Herring was then called
upon. He had come in late, and there
not being room for another candidate to
squeeze in on the long wooden bench on
the stage, he had taken a seat among
the audience. Mr.. Herring ascended
the platform, however, to address the
meeting. He had no intention of coming there to make a speech, He
had taken his Btand ou ' 'Representation by population or separation," which stand he proceeded to justify. Ho waB not in accord
witli tlie policy of the Government on
the redistribution question. Tbe Government, also, hod no public works
policy. He believed in a thorough
policy of public workB, and in borrowing ".uney if necessary, and laying it
out systematically on the public roads
and other works. The money would
come back in increased taxation on the
improved lands. The yearly grant to
the municipalities should be Increased from $1,000 to (3,000. There
were large speculators who owned land
alongside of land tbat was being unimproved, and he would go in for increasing the taxation on wild land. If
the electors did him tbe honor of electing him he would do bis best for the
District.
Capt. Thompson here announced that
he waB prepared to answer any question
that might be put to him.
He waB asked the same question by
Mr. Hy. Harris as that gentleman had
nut to Mr. Kirkland, and answered in
the affirmative.
Mr. Sinclair again rose and assured
tbe audience that he was of the samo
mind.
The chairman then invited others to
speak. Dr. Bodington, of the Mission,
waa called for by the audience and responded. Ho was not a candidate. He
bad listened to the various addresses,
and it struck him that there was not a
great deal of variation. They seemed
all to be in favor of a good redistribution
bill, and, with the exception, perhaps,
of Mr. Henderson, all were prepared to
turn out the Government, if necessary,
to get it.
Mr. Henderson here hastily arose and
informed Dr. Bodington and the audience that he "would turn out the Government in case of need."
Dr. Bodington continuing, called attention to tho great necessity that existed for more fostering of tlie agricultural
interests of tho country. The want of
proper roads, of any roads at all in many
instances, was a crying shame and a
terrible drawback and hardship. Without the development of the agricultural interests, a country ean not
?;et on. As it was, we had to
mport a great many articles of food,
Ac, thnt Bhould, and would, under proper conditions, be produced in the Province. It seemed discreditable to the
Government and to the people, perhaps,
that this state of things should exist.
Dr. Bodington spoke at considerable
length, and ably and forcibly throughout, and we regret that we cannot give
a more extended report.
Reeve Kitchen, of Chilliwack, was
then called upon by the audience. He
said he was a representative bf the
Mainland Association, nud tho people
of his district were in accord with the
platform of that association almost to a
unit In a meeting at Chilliwack, recently, composed of M r. Robson's friends,
they could not oppose that platform.
Six years ago Mr. Robson stated he was
going to work for an extra member for
this District. He did so, but gave an
extra member to Cowicban as well.
We wero promised a redistribution
measure Inst year; we got an amendment to the constitution. Mr. Robson
told ub some years ago that the 45,000
acres of tho Sumas dyking lands would
be   got   from    the    Dominion Gov
ernment, and the proceeds applied
to reclamation purposes. The lands
had been mode over to the Provincial
Government, but when Mr. Robson was
asked in the House last session about
applying them to the purpose intended
he denied that there ever had been such
an intention. Mr. Robson had made
quite a number of other definite promises (which Mr, Kitchen
recited in detail) which he bad broken.
He had held out baits, so to speak, at
election time, but lie had not kept
his promises, and the people
of Chilliwack would not support him,
they would not allow the wool to be
pulled over their eyes any more. (Hear,
hear, and laughter.) Mr. Kitchen spoke
at considerable length further, and in
the same strain. He made an eloquent
and forcible address throughout, which
we have not got space to report more
fully.
After a vote of thanks to Reeve Maxwell for presiding, the meeting came to
a close.     ^^^^^^^^^

* Wiggins Explains.
Ottawa, May 28.—Professor Wiggins
waB asked yesterday what he thought
was the cause of the strange phenomenon seen over the rivers in Soochow,
China, which first appeared in the form
of a black cloud and gradually became
balls of fire. He suid that the Northern
Pacific Ocean and adjacent continents
have beon for some weeks passing
through a violent volcanic period.
Scientists have examined the gases
which escaped from the craters and
found them to consist of carbon and its
compounds, which are heavier than
common air, and will, of course, like
water, settle over lowest levels, as over
rivers and in valleys. These gases, it is
found, are highly charged with electricity, and at night become more or
less luminous, like tbe pillar which led
the children of Israel. During the timo
of a great planetary pressure these gases
are forced even up from tho bod of the
sea, and frighten sailors in mid-ocean.
The planet Venus, which caused the
recent earthquake in the Northern
Pacific Ocean, and which was felt in
California and Queen Charlotte Island.
Ib producing the phenomena in China.
On being asked what caused the earthquake in the Eastern States a few days
ago, he said that it wns the California
earthquake travelling eastward and reappearing at the moon's conjunction.

that marked physical changes nave come

its editor, Dr. Lee, declaring thnt the

A Cold, Deliberate Murder.
St. Louis, Mo., May 28.—Silkeston is
sixteen miles south-east of St. Louis,
aud Herbert Ellis is a farmer living five
miles from Silkeston. He employed
Henry Hall last March and Jacob Haines
last April aB farm hands. They had
apparently never mot before, but became close friends, sleeping iu tho samo
bed, and were always together. At 3
o'clock this afternoon, Hall waB lytnr
on the floor when Haines came in will
a double-barrelled shot gun and standing
within ten feet of him emptied both
barrels into Hall's body without a word.
Then ho dropped the gun and fled,
stopping only long enough to say, with
a curse, that he only came here to find
out what ho could about the James boys.
Hall lived fifteen minutes and said lie
had no idea why Haines shot him, and
that thore had been no quarrel. The
murderer is very well-known in St.
Louis, and has very wealthy relatives.
A posse is in pursuit and will undoubtedly lynch him if they catch him.

writes the Freeman's Journal that £00,000

Nihilist riot Discovered.
Pabis, May 20.—The police have discovered a formidable Nihilist plot and
arrested fifteen persons involved. Incriminating documents and a variety of
explosives were discovered at the residence of a leading man named Mendelsohn, at Fontenay-aux-Roses. Mendelsohn was taken in charge by the officers.
The frequent purchase of explosive materials from chemists furnished the police with the clue which led to the apprehension of the prisoners.
When Will It End.
Halifax, N. 8., May 29.—A good deal
of excitement prevails at St. George
Bay, Newfoundland, owing to tbe French
warships ordering British subjects there
to remove their fishing gear, nets, etc.,
from the water, with the alternative of
tbe commander of the vessel ordering
his men to remove them. Fearing that
their nets would be destroyed the fishermen, promptly removed them.
A Base-Ball Blot.
Joliet, Ills., May 20.—The baseball
craze in Joliet resulted in a riot, which
ended last night in the murder of Dennis
Commisky. The murdered man and
lus brother James were returning from
the League ball game when they saw an
amateur club playing near the Rock Island tracks. James interfered with the
game aud was hit on the head with a
bat by Jas. Golden, who cannot be found.
Bold Burglars.
Boston, May 29.—A bold burglary was
committed at Watertown last night at
the house of Isaac Bemis, a retired
Boston manufacturer, tho burglar getting away with several thousand dollars'
worth of securities. Bemis is about 80
years of age, and with his housekeeper

town, and is n man of great wealth. No
clue to tbe perpetrators.
A Long Bicycle Trip.
Tbrrb Haute, Ind., May 29.—F. E.
Weaver, of New Haven, Conn., stopped
in this city to-day on a trip across the
continent on a bicycle. He left New
Haven thirty four days ago and since

indicated by the cyclometer on his
wheel. He is bound for California,
where he will spend the winter with
relatives. He Intends to take his time
and reach bis destination early . in
August.	
A Clever Escape.
Tbenton, N.J., May 29.—A great sensation was caused here last night by the
announcement that two prisoners had
escaped from the State prison. The
two convicts are Henry Jackson and
Thomas Thomas, fire bugs sentenced in
February 1884 to thirty years. While
most of tho keepers were in attendance
at the night school for the convicts these
two sandbagged the door keeper, Chas.
Parker, and bound and gagged him,
robbing him of $800 which he had on
his person and iu clothea belonging to
the deputy keepers made good their escape.	
Life In Texas.
Ei. Paso, Texas, May 29.—Last night
M. Goudine fired two shots at Leon
Barlow, one ball pnsslng through his
lungs and the other through his liver.
The wounded mun died in four hours.
After Goudine fired tho first shot the
firing became general among the crowd
gathered in front of the theatre. Three
disinterested parties were slightly
wounded. The dead man's father was
Colonel Barlow, a retired banker of
Fort Worth. Goudine is a banker of
Fort Worth. Goudine and one of hia
companions were arrested and charged
with the murder. Both Barlow and
Goudine have many friends, aud It is
feared tho trouble is not yet ended.
The cause was words over Goudine's
attention to Barlow's sister.
Children Cry for Pitcher's Cutoria,
Fighting the War Again.
New Yobk, May 29.—A special to the
Dress from Richmond, Va., says: General J. A. Early while engaged in a hot
discussion of tbe war issues at the exchange this afternoon was approached
by a stranger who tainted him ou the
shoulder, remarked: "My dear General
Longstreet, how do you do?" Early
astonished his visitor by exclaiming
savagely: "I want nothing to do with a
man who mistakes me for such a damned
rascal us James Longstreet." A friend
of tbe latter who was standing by demanded a retraction. Early refused,
whereupon Longetreet's friend made a
lunge for Early but the latter was protected by friends long enough to allow
him to escape. The incident has caused
quite a sensation.
The Lee Memorial.
Richmond, Va., May 29.—The monument of General Lee, erected by the
ladies of Maryland and Virginia, wbb
unveiled to day in the presence of a
multitude. The streets were elaborately decorated and the colors of the confederacy blended with the national emblem. Portraits of tho leader of the
lost cause were prominently displayed.
At an early hour the military gathered
for the parade. Ex-Governor Fitzhugh
Leo was chief marshal and Gen. John
R, Cook chief of staff. Among the aids
of tho chief marshal were Senator Ball
of Tennessee; Senator Calquett of Georgia ; Senator Hampton of . South
Carolina; Senator Ranson of North
Carolina; Col. BbbII Duke of Kentucky; Gen. Hunton of Virginia; Gen.
Wheeler of Alabama, and other distiu-
?;uished southern soldiers. The veterans
rom all the southern states in the procession were arranged in order of their
secession, South Carolina in the lead,
Virginia in the rear. The parade started
at 12:30. The passage through the
principal streets was a continued ovation and it was nearly two o'clock when
the procession reached the monument.
Au enormous crowd was waiting. Governor McKhiney, President of the Lee
monument ass Mlation, called the assemblage to order and introduced General
Early, chairman of the meeting, who, in
u fow words, announced Col. Anderson
orator of tbo occasion. The address was
greeted with groat applause. Gen. Jos.
E. Johnston unveiled the monument
and when the outlines of the statue
came in view tho shout almost drowned
tho boom ot the cannon. THE DAILY COLUMBIAN, NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, MAY 20, 1890,

THE DISTRICT CONVENTION.
By tho report in another column, it
will bo soon that the meeting at Langley yesterday did not exorcise the functions of a convention for the selection of
candidates, for the reason that so little
time had necessarily elapsed between
the call and the meeting that a consid-
erablu number of the delegates were
not regularly appointed and accredited,
The convention proper, therefore, wns
adjourned until Thursday next, June
5th, to bo held at tbo same place, to wit,
the Town Hall, Langley, and at 1
o'clock, p. m. of the day mentioned.
This will give a clear week for notifying
the different municipalities nnd settlements and to allow the selection of delegates in all these. It is to be hoped
that every municipality and settlement
will insure thnt their delegates to
the convention shall be properly
selected by public meetings
the various localities, and accredited to
the convention by the secretaries of
each meeting. Aa the convention will
now necessarily meet after the nominations, its business will, of course, be to
select from the candidates who may
have- been nominated, three men to
form the Independent ticket. In the
meantime tbe electors will do well to
refrain from giving promises of support
to anyone. A week will elapse nfter
the convention beforo polling day, which
will be sufficient time in which to make
a decision.
To acquaint the people of the District
nt tbe earliest possible time of the results of the convention, we shall issue
extra copies of the Daily Columbian to
onr   Weekly subscribers,  on Friday
next (the day after tho adjourned convention).   We are doing the same with
to-day's issue of the Daily, and shall
likewise furnish our Weekly subscribers
with to-morrow's (Friday's) daily paper
so that without loss of time thoy may
be aware of the result of the nominations.       ___________
THE LANGLEY MEETING.
* For reasons which are stated elsewhere, the intended convention at the
Langley town hall yesterday was turned
into a public meeting to hear an expression on the political questions of
the day from the District candidates
present aud others. The District candidates, very coincidently, not to say providentially, being all present (with the
exception of the Hon. John Robson, and,
we understand, it was only by a fluke
that he failed to " get there" too), the
public meeting part of the affair was a
decided and brilliant success, Seven
candidates and two or three ordinary
citizens addressed the intelligent and
appreciative audience present, nnd n fair
opportunity was given the pretty large
informal representation of the District
assembled to judge the tine and the
weak points of the different aspirants
for political honors before them. One
very noticeable feature about the remarks of the different candidates (who
had been feeling the public pulse pretty
considerably throughout the District be
it remembered) was tho distinct and
unmistakable ring of the Mainland Association platform and principles in
every address. Even the supposed
"straight" Government candidates were
careful to convey the impression
that they wero nearly, if not
quite, Independent, and when catechised
in the open meeting gave promises that
would do credit to the most pronounced
and undoubted Independent. Of course,
there were mental reservations in some
cases, but it will be for the electors to
judge who are sincere and who are
merely desirous of filling thoii sails with
the strong and steady wind of popular
sentiment which the advocacy and
agitation of true principles haB
set in motion from one end of the
District to the other. The fact remains,
however, and it is u most significant
one, and as flattering to the Mainland
Association and those advocating the
same principles, as it Is creditable to
the honesty and intelligence of the
District at large, that the candidates
have all deemed it expedient to trim
their public course and expressions by
the platform of the people's party.
Such being the case, tho electors must
be all the more careful to select only
those men who are undoubtedly independent and true, in Bplrit and consistent attitude, as well as In word.
VERY HARD UP.
Ouit friend on Church street is wrestling still with the Mainland Association
and ita platform and objects. He seems,
judging by the "cheeky" nonsenee he
talks, to bo very hard up for anything
like an argument. The simple fact that
yesterday's meeting at Langley proved
the District to be solid on tbo Association platform should have shown him
that he is hurting his own cause by
every word he prints. The supreme
impudence of a man who knows
next to nothing about tbe District (or
Province, for that matter,) telling the
people of the Lower Mainland that the
action they have taken, after calm deliberation, is "stupid," Ib enough of itself to put our cotemporary out of consideration at once, but that ho may have
no excuse, we will just repeat that the
ejectors of the District mean to leaveHon.
John Robson out this time, not because
of personal feeling, not because of sympathy with the Opposition party in the
local House, but because ' Mr. Robson
has allowed himself to become the
father and defender of a measure scandalously unjust to the District, nnd '.He
electors feel tbat they are bound to
enter the very strongest possible protest against that measure. Were Mr.
Robson returned for the District—he
will not be returned, that is pretty certain—but supposing for the sake of
argument that he should be, it would at
once be asserted that the District consented to the infamous Redistribution
Bill, and when the question of redistribution came up again, tbe fact of his return
would be used to show that the District
did not object to the "balance of power"
theory. The Mainland Association haa
throughout appealed to tho people on
principle, and every candidate who is
in sympathy with it is pledged to
support "measures,notmen." Tho Government, therfore, has only to adopt the
simple plan of doing right in order to
compel the support of these or any men
who an) pledged to principles.
Hloi.d   Blunt Flow.
An Ottawa dispatch says: Senator
McDonald, of Victoria, B. C, states that
Canadian sealers will ignore the action
of American executive officers. The Canadian sealing fleet, he says, started on
its annual hunt January last. They go
down the coast bb far as San Francisco,
following the seals north, picking them
up ns they go along. They will go into
Behring Sea, as they consider that they
have a perfect right to do so. He haB
all along thought that tho whole matter
would be brought to maturity by some
act of bloodshed.
A Proralilng Scheme.
A movement is on foot for the establishment of a General Fishing Colonization Company ou the West coast. Mr,
Alexander Begg, who is prominently
connected with the Crofter settlement
scheme, is one of its leading promoters.
In all probability the company will be
formed in Great Britain with a capital
of £100,000 to £150,000. It is proposed
to begin operations on the west coast of
the island of Vancouver, and establish
canneries and salting and fish smoking
establishments; to convert llsh offal
into guano, develop the mineral resources
and, if circumstances are favorable,
to promote settlement in and about the
localities where the company's works
nro established, which otherwise would
not be likely for some time to come to
be taken hold of. Fish oils will also be
un in licit! ut manufacture, and it la considered desirable to have the enterprise
made as comprehensive as possible.
Mr. Begg seems to be of opinion that
tbe present is a favorable occasion at
which to inaugurate the project. British capital is being invested, in all directions, and it is thought that few
better fields for enterprise present themselves than this. While making a fair
return upon tbe capital invested, it is
confidently believed that the company's
operations would be most beneflcal to the
Province. They would promote settlement by supplying employment to acon-
siderable number of people, whose homes
would require to be established in
sparsely settlements. The project is
scarcely in such a condition as to be
formally laid before the financier either
of this country or Great Britain, but it is
likely, that in the course of a week or
two, a complete prospectus will be issued.

Railway Loan Appropriation By-Law,189D
A By-Law to enable the Council of the
City of New Westminster to appropriate to other purposes a portion of
the $155,000 borrowed under authority of the "Railway Bonus By-
Law, 1889."
WHEREAS, UNDER AUTHORITY OF A
certain by-law entituled the ''Hallway
Bonus ByLaw, 1889," passed by the Council of
tbe City of New Westminster on the Hth day of
October, 1880, the sum of |155,000 was borrowed
for the purpose of assisting the Southern Hail-
way Company by a bonus and otherwise;
And whereas the said sum of $165,000 has
lieeu placed on deposit in the Bank of British
Columbia, where it now is;
And wiihiieas the said Southern Railway
Company has relinquished all claim to the anid
sum of $166,000, or uny part thereof, and tlie snid
sum is nut requl-ed for the purposes for which
It was borrowed;
And wi__-.-I.as a by-law entituled the "Street
Improvement Loan By-Law, 1800," empowering
the Mnvor of the said city to borrow tlio sum of
$80,000 for certain street improvements, received
the nssent of the electors and was passed on Iho
28th day of April, 1890, but no debentures havo
been made or issued under authority of Ihe
said by-law;
And whereas It is expedient that a portion
of the said sum of $lfi.r.,ooo, namely tlio sum of
$139,000, should ho applied to public works and
objects other than those for which it was borrowed;
Therefore the Mayor and Aldermen of the
City of New Westminster, lu Council assembled,
enact as follows:
1. The "Streot Improvement Loan By-Law,

TO THE ELECTORS OF
New Westminster City.
GENTLEMEN:—In response to a requisition,
numerously signed, which has been presented to
mc, I beg to oner myself as representative of
this City lu the Provincial Legislature.
I frankly confess that, aside from the great
question of tho just distribution or legislative
power, 1 would scurcely euro to bo a candidate.
If you do mc the honor to elect mc I shall inuko
that question my first consideration at nil times,
and iu order to do this it is essential that I
keen qulto free from any entangling alliances
with either Government or Opposition.   But to
the peoplo and tho advocacy of the rights of tho
people,In this matter nnd in nil others, I can
fully and freely pledge myself; ond with those,
he they on what side of tho House they may,
who arc animated by n similar spirit, I will work
cordially.
Tho present crisis demands special treatment.
Wo of tho Lower Mainland aro denied our Jnst
share ot legislative power, and so long ns that is
the caso our true policy, in my opinion—nay,
iho policy which ourown self-respect compels us
to adopt—Is to return no man to the Legislature
who will not mako the righting of that wrong
that those who shall he found willing to do
right In this matter, will bo the most likely to do
right in others also.
Notwithstanding tho utmost devotion to this
lirst question, your representative will havo to
deal with many othor matters, and perhaps lt
will bo sulncicnt now to say on this point that I
hollow thero is room for a good deal of work beforo tho administration of public affairs can
claim to bo what it should be—government by
tho people/or Iho people. I should earnestly en
doavor to do my share of that work.
Ibeliovo I may safely assumo that yon need
no assurance of my deep and abiding interest In
everything that makes for the prosperity of New
Westminstor City.
I am, Gentlemen,
Very truly youri,

Many Indians called at Mr. M. Hayes'

and an investigation will be demanded,
The police put a speedy stop to tho
gambling that was being carried on outside the circus tent yesterday. But not
until several gulls had been "nipped"
severely. It is a puzzle to understand
how some people can ever think of
patronizing the primeval and palpable
thimble-rig. Ono half-breed is said lo

The grasshoppers have commenced
depredations in the district between

that they will do serious damage to tho
hay and grain crops. Should the present dry weather continue for a lengthened period, many fields will not yield
any crop at all, aB the small streams are
now almost dry, and there is no water
available for irrigating purposes.
Drowned In English Bay.
A lad named Albert H. Murray was
drowned in English Bayyesterday afternoon. Murray and another Vancouver
bov named Green played truant and
went down to the bay to Bwim. There
they found a canoe and taking posses*
sioh of it, went out for a paddle. There
was a heavy swell on at the time and
when some distance from shore the
canoe shipped some water. ThiB alarmed the boys who jumped but and attempted to swim ashore. Murray could
only, swim a little and Green was unable
to swim a stroke, and the consequence
was both boys were soon struggling for
their lives. The accident waa witnessed
from the shore by a man named Simpson, who went to the rescue, and arrived
in time to save Green's life. Murray
was drowned. The body was.recovered
about an hour later.

The Fur  Tnido.
As the Indians arrive from their winter quarters the fur market is becoming
more lively. This week the receipts of
furs and skins have been much larger
than at any time since the beginning of
the year. The varieties havo neon laud
otter, bear, mink, mountain goat and
sheep, raccoon, and rat skins. All the
furs aro prime in quality, which is always the case after a sovero winter.
Mr. W. H. Vianen, the principal dealer
in furs, has mado some large deals with
the Indians, and he will have an unusual quantity to ship this season,
Tilt Circus.
The circus reaped a golden harvest
last night. The seats wero not only
crowded, but the passages aud entries
were literally jammed with spectators
of all ages and every nationality, the
Chinese being well represented. When
the tent waB filled there could not havo
been fewor than two thousand spectators, and probably more. The performance itself was a good deal above the
average of travelling shows and several
of the acta were first-class. One rather
ridiculous episode Ib worthy of notice.
One of the clowns camo tumbling into
the ring with a heap of boxes and parcels according to the ancient custom of
these gentlemen. He entered from
among the crowd at the main entrance
and no sooner had he got into tho ring
than Officer Carty seized him and attempted to run him out of the tent.
But the clown was a vigorous fellow
and would not be run out.   The officer
fmlled with might and main and after a
ong struggle got his man to tho edge of
the ring where the showman wriggled
free and ran round the ring chased by
the policeman1, to tho great amusement
of the audience. After the regular performance there was a concert at fifteen
cents a head to which more than half
the audience remained, The concert
won as bad aa tho acrobatic work had
been good. All the circus goods, horses,
elephants and tents were shipped on
board the steamer Ferndale laat night,
and the steamer sailed for Seattle early
this morning.

Cruelty to Animals.       *
Yesterday afternoon many of our
citizens were treated to an exhibition of
brutal cruelty which, happily, is of very
rare occurrence in this enlightened age.
The victim of the barbarity was a poor
young deer, which two men had tied to
the tail-board of their wagon, and were
dragging by the neck through the City
at a rapid pace. The wretched little
animal, of course, pulled back aB hard
as it could, the result being that strangulation was quickly taking place. Two
gentlemen who witnessed the brutal exhibition, ran forward and begged the
fellows driving the wagon to allow them
to place the deer In the wagon, as tho
animal *vas choking. "Let it choke and
be ," answered the fellows, driving off again at a fast gait, and apparently much tickled over the agonies of
their victim. It is a great pity that
Westminster has not a local Henry
Bergh, who would seo to it that the two
specimens of humanity mentioned above
got what they so richly deserve. The
constant recurrence of Just such revolt-
ins spectacles ou our streets will probably induce some of our humane citizens" to organize a branch of the S.P.C.
A. in this City.

A Sweat Innocent.
This morning about 2 o'clock a loud
rap on the police station door startled
Mr. Smith from his peaceful slumbers,
and induced him to go and see who was
the prowler of the night. The knocker
was a gentleman from the country,
Langley or thereabouts, and he told a
dismal tale of deception and robbery.
Before the evening performance of the
circus last night he was hanging around
the tents in an aimless manner not
knowing very well what to do. Suddenly a stranger, probably struck with the
guileless innocence so markedly apparent on the countenance of the bucolic
gent, accosted him, asking him if he
were going fn to Bee the show. With
the deep and evasive cunning peculiar
to the large and healthy tribe of hayseed, Mr. Country said, "Well, I don't
know, maybe, and maybe not." The
stranger then said, ''have you got a
ticket?" "No," replied Country. "Well,
I'll get one for you; come along," said
the obliging stranger, hauling Mr.
Neaps up to the ticket booth and purchasing a ticket for that gentleman out of hii (the stranger's) own
money. The countryman said, "Aw,
thanks awfully, old fellah." Tho
stranger retorted; " Say, how much
money you got?" " Oh, fifty dollars, or
bo," replied Country. " Well," said the
kind stranger, "I'll get it changed for
you, gimme the bill." The rustic nanded
over a fifty dollar bill and in a fow
seconds back came the obliging friend,
"Here you go," he said, "now watch
mo count, ten, twenty, thirty, forty,
five, and four fifty in silver makes forty-
nine fifty{ don't It?" "Why, you're
awfully kind, don't you know," said the
clever young fellow from the country,
putting the money in his pocket, " 1
think I'll go in now, good-bye and many
thanks." After he had been in some
time ho thought lie had better count
over his change. Thirty-five dollars
short by gum! With a weary wail of
woe the young man flew around those
tents in a way to raise envy In the bosom
of a circus horse; there was a one-man
circus up there for about thirty minutes,
but the gay deceiver he never found,
Thon Mr. Country rushed down to in
voke the law. Mr, Smith told him to
go down to tho Ferndale and see if he
could find the man, as the young man
though t he hod a kind of a sort of a species
of faint and hasty rocollectlon of the gen -
tleman's face. While the officer and
the hay-developer Btood talking on the
marble steps of the police station portico,
a heavy, booming whistle reverberated
over tlie roofs of the sleeping city, and
tho Ferndalo slowly steamed out Into
mid stream, a mass of brilliant light,
und then, increasing her speed quickly
vanished from their sight. "I've been
done, haven't I, please?" said the sad
countryman, "Yes" sagely replied
Alec, "thirty-five dollars a lesson, too;
comes high, but you fellows seem to
have to have it," "I say old man,
whispered the disconsolate one, '.'don't
tell any of those 'blawsted' reporters
about this, will you now, I'll never
hear the end of it if you do." "Oh
that'a all right," said Alec,—"Good
night," uitd'ho closed the door and went
back to bed.

PERSONAL.
The  Great Paoiflo Mail  Co.
New Yobk, May 28.—At the annual
meeting of the Pacific Mail S. S. Co. the
following directors were elected: C. P.
Huntington, Henry Hart, Isaac E.
Elgates, Calvin S. Brice, Samuel Thomas, Oliver N. Payne, Edward tauter*
bach, Chas. W. McGhee and T. B.
Houston. The president recommended
that the business be "pooled" with the
Trans-Pacific, or failing this, that the
Pacific Mail Co. establish separate
agencies. The total earnings for the year
were: $4,065,667; expenses, $3,555,117;
net earnings, $510,550; cash UBBets April
SOth, $673,405; liabilities, $178,496.
Under mail contracts the Central American and Mexican governments owe
$88,347. Nineteen steamers comprise
the Pacific Mail'fleet. At the meeting
of the board of directors lately, J. B.
Houston was elected president, and Edward Lauterbach, vice-president. The
election of the other officers waB. held
over until next meeting.
The Government supporters in this
city are making n determined effort to
secure the re-election of Mr. Thos. Cunningham. All the strength that can be
brought to bear on the Government
candidate is boing put forward, but the
effort will prove rootless, the people's
candidate, Mr. J. C. Brown, will be
elected, and that by a very large majority.
Another candidate, In the person of
Alderman Fox, has made his appearance before the voters of Vancouver
City.
Hon. John Hobson arrived here from
Victoria yesterday. He paid a lengthy
visit to Alderman Home's committee
rooms.—News-Advertiser, Thursday.
Even the strongest Government suj
porterB admit that Victoria city wi»
elect two Opposition candidates. So
much the better; a stronger opposition
is required in the new Parliament than
maintained in the old.
The canvass goes merrily on all over
the Province, but the real hot work will
not begin until after to-morrow. Then
it will ue known exactly who are tho
candidates.
Tho Vancouver World nppeara to favor the candidature of Messrs. Tatlow
and Home for the local house. Both
ore good men, but not the sort the
World would like to see elected if its
party were strong enough to nut solid
Government supporters in the field.
There's nothing like making the best
of a bad caBe, and the World is acting
on this principle.
The ranks of tho district candidates
will be wofully thinned to-morrow.
Reeve Kitchen, of Chilliwack, is u
candidate for election to the Provincial
Parliament for the District of Westminster. He cornea out fair and square
on the Independent ticket, nnd will undoubtedly be one of the people's choice
on polling day. In his own municipality Mr. Kitchen will head the poll,
aud will also come welt to the front in
Maple Ridge, Langley and Surrey. His
election is assured and the electors are
to be congratulated on having such a
reliable man iu the field.
POLICE   COURT.
Before T. C. Atkinson. P. M.
Charley, an Indian, charged a Chinaman named Ah Linn with having supplied him with intoxicating liquor, to
wit, whisky. Ah Linn denied the
charge. Charley said ho bought the
bottle of liquor from Linn, drank half of
it, got sobered up und recollecting that
half the fine accrued to the informer,
went straightway and arrested him and
ran him into tho police station. Charley
commented severely upon the perfidy of
Linn in watering tho whisky and said
he believed Linn had drunk half tho
whisky, and filled the bottle up with
wator; which ho considered a very degrading nnd uncivilized practice. There
being no substantial evidence tho cuso
was dismissed with costs.
The next caso was that of Shepherd
vs. Williams, for using abusive long.
Mr. L. P. Eckstein, who appeared for
the defence, said that this case was evidently the outcome of a case which was
lately tried in the supreme court, and
Mr. Williams had been annoyed at some
of the evidence given by Mr. Sheppard,
Mr. Williams had made use of the language he wns charged with because his
feelings had run away with him and he
(Mr. Eckstein) would ask Mr. Shepherd
to withdraw the case. There waa no
cause to show vindictiveness, nnd he
did not think Mr. Shepherd would be
animated by any such feelings.
Mr. Shepherd said there was no vindictiveness In the case at all, but what
he wanted waa protection, some assurance that he would suffer no molestation
from Mr. Williams.
Mr. Eckstein said that the charge laid
did not call for any measure of that kind.
Mr. Williams was a government official
and it Btood to reason that if he misbehaved himself at any time this case
would bo brought against him, and
knowing this he would not he likely to
incur the consequences.
HiB Honor regretted that this case had
come before him at all, and naked Mr.
Shepherd if he were afraid of defendant.
Mr. Shephard said that he wus ufruld
to go about Queen's Avenue after dark
on account of Williams's threatening
language.
Mr. Eckstein said that in that caie the
plaintiff would have to lay another information.
The Magistrate finally adjourned the

Gigantic Combinations.
Nkw York, May 28.—The Herald's
Chicago special says: The Canadian
Pacific is making still further inroads
into east-bound business of central
traffic linca. To almost every New England point, even as far south as Providence and Worcester, the Canadian
Pacific is making ratea of 45 cents per
hundred on dressed beef, the regular
rate being 48 cents. The business is
all taken out of Chicago on the Wabash
and thenco over the Canadian Pacific
and is distributed to New England
points by way of Boston and Maine.
Since last Friday the new rate has dono
all of Swift's A Hammond's dressed
beef business, besides a liberal share of
the out-put of other houses. Other
central truffle lines nre certain there is
a deal between the Canadian Pacific nud
the Grand Trunk of Canada by which
thoeaBtern territory Ib divided, as another
new route formed of the Wabash, Grand
Trunk A Lackawanna is doing exactly
the same in Pensylvanla as the other
route is doing in New England, Each
route has issued tariffs, cutting rates
three cents to all points,
Mr. P. Peebles has moved his furniture establishment, owing to increased
business, to new and commodious quarters on Douglas st.   See adv.

TO THE ELEOTORS
—OF THE—
Westminster Electoral District.
GENTLEMEN:—As H is difficult to arrange to
sec each Individual elector before election day,
I wish to nut before you the platform on whioh
I stand whilst seeking your support.
Up to the introduction oi the Constitution
Amendment Act, I should have supported tho
the present Government, but I now stand independent of all parties on that measure pledged
to ohtaiu a fair and Just Redistribution Act
Immediately nfter the publication of the census
returns; sueh act to bo based as nenrly as pos
slide upon population, the abolition of tho balance of power aud the division ot districts Into
one member constItuencies. Outside thiB pledge
I claim the privilege of boing allowed to support
anv legislation of i. Just and beneficial nnturo
which maybe Introduced by the Government.
I will endeavor to impress upoti the Govern-
ment the necessity of the utmost liberality in
the expenditure for the opening up of all agricultural districts and even, if necessary, to borrow money for this purpose.
Tlte conservation of all public lauds for actua
settlement, und the abolition of all sales of lam
lit large areas, will beoneof the chief objects I
shall hold In view, and to also assist In the
greatest amount of land being brought into cultivation, I would advocate the Wild Land Tar
being raised to 25 cents per acre.
It will also be my endeavor to Impress upon
the Government the absolute necessity of taking
steps to assist in the reclamation of tlte Urge
area of land subject to overflow by the Fraser,
so as to render lt all fit for cultivation, feeling
sure thnt any money spent in that direction
will tie a good Investment, as the lands will he
greatly enhanced lit value for assessment.
From the above you wlll see I stand as a supporter of the Government, except ou one measure, nud feel sure thnt you will see that ns 1
am a resident farmer in tlio district our Interests nre identical, and I hope to he able to
materially advance the Interests of the district
should you honor tne t_3 your representative,
i am, Gentlemen,
Yours Obediently,

TO THE  ELECTORS
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election tn (ill the vacancy canned by tlie death of onr late
representative (the Hindi-respected I).
Chinhohn) and as I have slated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that lienor, I will now lay before you
some of my views on the leading questions winch i consider will arise in thi
near future for consideration.
I have been asked what I mean when
I announce mvaolf as a Liberal-Conservative; 1 reply, "That by nature aud
education I am u Conservative, but a
residence of over 30 years in Ibis Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has hud the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
me liberal ideas, therefore 1 claim 1 am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that party lines are not donned in
Hritish Columbia its they ure in the older
provinces, 1 consider that our representatives are not in duty bound to give a
throiigh-thick-and-thiii support to nny
party, bvlt tbey should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
noon moasures which may be brought
before them, and to consider tlie prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, and
should a uieasuro come before them
which they consider in any way detrimental to the interests of thiB Province
they should take their stand like true
men aud.vote against it.
i I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We (ire a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of every-day
UBe to our Fanners and others, and
which we cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, and in many cases tlie articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles are brought from tbe States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and are met with such heavy duties
tbat heads of families in this Province
pay move than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
We have had example to tbe point during the last three months. If we had
not received a good supply from California there would have been a meat
famine; as it is we are now aud have
been paying 25 cents per pound for mutton, whiclns inure than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the same state of
affairs is likely lo obtain again after nny
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for the last eleven years
our stock raisers are little better prepared to meet bard winters than they
■were before, ami to my mind the only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
N. P. are the manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to kcc "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question,! would advocate".Reciprocity"
in many articles which are at present in the Tariff lists, as I think
it would be beneficial to both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go down so deep into his
pockets lo buy what he needs to eat and
wear. 1 am a ware the Government must
have a revenue to carry on the affairs of
the country, but i would have "luxuries"
pay more and get at tho pockets of the
richer cIubscs who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of the late Mr. Ohiimolm, he was unable
to be in his place this session, and very
little during the previous oncj bo we of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before the notice of
the House. Had be (Ur. Chisholm)
been in his seat, I do not think the Postmaster-General would have beeu left so
nnuili in the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Fraser as be seems to have heen
when he proposed to cut off the mail
snbBidy from that important route, and
there are other places iu the District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider should receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope that in the near future onr
District will reach that point that we
may look for it to be divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, and when the census
retmns arc iu I think the ucccssarv
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation.
Tbe protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also the works for improving
the channel at the Saudheads, in view
of tbe expected increase iu our shipping
interests.
I consider tlie Province should have
control over all railway charters atal
privileges within our borders.
Our Pishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District iu particular, 1 feel should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from the mouth
of the Serpentine to Eraser Kiver, also
to enquire ilito the question of cutting
ono from the Fraser Kiver lo Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to me.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fustoraK and encouraged judiciously,
.lust al present it is coming here fast
enough; I would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, us many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
Tbere are many other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would make
this address too long. I hope to see as
many aB possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them and answer any
question... As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send due notice of time and place of meetings.,
During my long residence in tlie Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
House iu a practical, business-like manner.
Should I have the honor to be elected
I assure you 1 shall watch over tbo interests ot tliis District faithfully and to
tho best of my ability, not forgetting
tbat I also go as a true British Columbian and to do my duty as such. '
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.

TO THE  ELECTORS
New Westminster District.
i; ENTLKM EN:—As I have already announced,
I betr lo tiller myself as a candidate for the seat In
the Commons made vacant by the death of our
late member, and I conic before vim as a supporter of the Government of Sir John Mnedoii-
alri, reserving lo niyselt, of course, the right to
aid independently should the action of ibe Government in any mutter seem prcjudleal to our
interests.
I would strongly urge immediate attention to
Iho Improvement of the River where retjulred.
for the protection of the rich agricultural lands
ofthcDislricl.audtf elected. I shull at once
proceed to Ottawa nml leave no stone unturned
to secure the immediate appointment of a
competent engineer with a view to the prompt
undertaking of this most important work.
As you are aware, the duly on certain kinds
of miniig machinery has been remitted In this
Province as a special concession lo British Co-
lutnhhi on account of the special conditions obtaining here.   1 would .ironglv urge the further
application of this principle of special tariff nr--
riitigcmenls, so as to relieve consumers of goods
which must bo imported, while preserving tlie
protection  of our agricultural and oilier in
leresls.
The laud laws of the Dominion, having been
| framed without close consideration  of our re-
j -iiiirenients. are iu many points unsuitable, for
| example In the conditions  as to clearing.   I
I would endeavor to secure immediate reform in
l this Important mutter.
[ Subsidies having been granted to rallwavs In
I the various Provinces of Hie Dominion, I should
| urgently present the clnin.8 to simitar assistance
j of railway; within our own Province.
should the City of New Westminster decide to
build a bridge across Ihe Fraser. I should use
I my best endeavors to obtain u substantia! sub-
! sidy for the work, tirginc that an undertaking
I of this ehariicler should rank with canals and
i railways as one entitled to national tiki,
1   The ties! census wilt undoubtedly show such
I au increase in the wenlll I population of this
i Dislrict as will constitute an undeniable claim
j to increased representation in the Commons,
That claim, If elected, I shall support lo the utmost of my ability.
Although, with ihe growth of the Distriot,
Hit! mull service hns been Improved ami extended, it si til law far behind our requirements.
I shytibl give special nllcniton to this purl of
your representative's work, feeling Hun it Is
one which is of vital importance.
1 should urge the enactment of such fishery
regulations, especially in the issuing of licences,
us would, without any injustice to Ihe canneries, tho Importance of which to Hie prosper!tv of
the District ull must recognise, fully protect
Ihe free lishermcn, and encourage tin- settlement amongst us of the greatest possible num-
bcrof that Industrious ami hnrdyelass of men,
AU enactments nnd regulations for the protection of while labor would receive my licuriy
support.
Continued work towards the Improvement of
the harbors of New Westminster and Vancouver, and Ihe cillclent lighting and buoying of
the snnie, Is u mailer which would have my
closest attention at all limes.
In a word, I Nliouid constantly urge upon Ihe
(iovernmeiil Ihe wisdom of u liberal policy In
public works In this District, the vast resources
of which make It certain thut such a policy
would be limply Justlllcd by results.
Trusllngto have the opportunity of seeing
every elector before polling day,

Vory sincerely yours,
