Not Enough Yet.
Bbrlix, May 21.—Tbe Army Bill
again came up for consideration before
the Budget Committee in the Reichstag
to-day. It wan explained to tlie committee by the Minister of War, General
de Duvernois, that the measure aimed
to qualify all Germans for military service. Tlie passage of the bill, lie said,
would give the empire 1.7,000 more
Moldiera.
The  Whisky Question.
St. Louis, Mo., May 21.—Miss Frances
E. Willard, president of the National
Women's Temperance Union, is in the
city to attend the statement meeting of
the Union. In the course of a lengthy
interview on tho whisky question iu
general, she touched upon the recent
original package decision given by the
U. 8. court, and said there is nothing
in it to cause discouragement. When
the fugitive slave law passed and tho decision was given, all looked dark to the
workers for freedom: nothing, however,
could have happened so helpful to their
abolition cause as when it was decided
by the highest legal authority in America that tlie negroes had no rights that a
whiteman was bound to respect. That
was the crack of doom to slave power.
Now if a prohibitory state has no laws j
that the United State., is. bound tu respect, and this is exactly the force of the
Supreme court decision, it will prove tho
crack of doom to the whisky oligarchy.
If politicaiiB know the day of their salvation, they will hurry through the bill
exempting prohibitory states from nny
action of the interstate commerce' law
as far as liquor is concerned. If they do
not the elections next fall will make
lively lighting along the line. Peoplo in
prohibitory states, like Iowa and Kansas, are ant to become provincial, but
this decision obligates them to cast their
eyes towards the horizon. It makes
prohibition National with a big capital
A Pair of Scoundrels.
New York, May 21.—George S. Turner, was arrested in this city last night
upon receipt of a telegram from the
chief of police of Seattle, charging him
with tho larceny of $15,000. It seems
that when Seattle was nearly wiped out
by tiro acout a year ago, the cry for aid
brought thousands of dollars from all
parts of the country, and this money
was placed in the hands of a disbusin'g
committee. One of the members of
this, committee was George McCourt,
who was known as a reputable business
man in his district. McCourt met Turner about this time, and very soon afterwards Turner started a store, and it is
alleged that the couple united their
interests and all the supplies for Mc-
Conrt's district were sold through Turner'0 »*orA     Vnr nvnrjr tfl «• »«•**» __»l.l  «
bill for $105 would be sent to the disbursing committee. These bills were
certified hy McCourt, and the two
divided the profits. The total amount
tluiH abstracted is $15,000. The investigation caused the indictment of the two
men. McCourt has been arrested aud is
held for trial in Seattle; Tinner escaped
to New York. In Jefferson Market
police court this morning Turner refused to make any reply to the charges
preferred agaiiiBt him, and was remanded to await the arrival of the requisition
papers. •   .
Went Well With William.
San Fbancisco, May 21,—The jury in
the case of William Bourne, the long'
shoreman charged with attempting to
smuggle a large quantity of opium
ashore, failed to agree upon a verdict
and have heen discharged. They stood
eight for conviction and four for
quittal.
Tlie Behring's Sea Problem.
New York, May 21.—The Herald's
Washington special says the reported
anxiety of the Canadian and British
Governments concerning the position of
Behring Sea negotiations does not appear to be shared by the representatives of our own Government at the
capitol. They do not admit that there
has been any substantial delay ou the
American side of the case, nor do they
apprehend that anything is likely to
occur in Behring Sea that may give rise
to.embarrassment in the efforts now in
irogress to como to n good and final un-
lerstauding on the question. Whether,
as alleged at Ottawa, a provisional arrangement for the present sealing season
had beeu tendered by the British Government in ample time to be put into
operation, I could obtain neither an
affirmation nor denial, but I did learn
that nothing in the nature of a modus
vivendi had been arranged or was likely
to be arranged. So far as I could divine
from the guarded and fragmentnl
answers to my inquiries, our authorities
have refused tho British proposal of a
modus vivendi, assuming one to have
been tendered iu tho form of a confidential letter of instruction to the captains
of the revenue cutters in Behring Sea.
directing them to avoid any actual
seizure of British vessels in the course of
their enforcement of the acts of congress
relating to the waters of Alaska. This
was the course taken in 1888 by Secretary Fairchild at the instance of the
secretary of state, and if now followed
by Secretary Windom upon a similar instigation, the asserted ignorance of
the British authorities as to American
intentions in Behring Sea for the present season is not inexplicable. Mr.
Blaine having taken measures for the
scrupulous observance of international
proprietors during the pendency of
negotiations, may not feel bound to disclose to the opposite pnrty tho purely
internal nnd domestic arrangements
effected between himself and his
colleagues of the treasury department.
The existence of uncertainty ns to the
extent to which the revenue cutters are
authorized and required to proceed
against British sealers in this present
season, is expected to have a useful result in bringing them to moderation in
the absence of any explicit restraint.
Conspirators on Trial.
Vienna, May 20,—The trial of Major
Plant zl, In the Bulgarian service, Capt,
Kolobkoff, a Russian officer, nine Bulgarian officers nnd four civilians, their
accomplices, charged with conspiring
to overthrow the Government, opened
lat Sofia to-day, having been postponed
from the 15th The Russian Government has been moving heaven and earth
to have Piontzi and his co-conspirators
released, without avail, and a full disclosure of the proceedings of Its agents
to overthrow tne reigning Prince and
subvert the Government is now sure to
be made. The trial, accordingly, assumes the importance of a political event
Involving tho relations o( Russia and
Austria, and is likely to load to grave
complications.  The city of Sofia is in a
highly excited condition this morning.
Great numbers of strangers are noticed
among the throngs around the building
where tho trial is going on, And there
are fears au attack 'will he made to rescue the prisoners by force. The entire
garrison is under arms, and Prince For
dinand is in Council with the minister!
at the palace.
Bribery ami Corruption.
Montreal, May 20.—There is great
excitement in political circles ami in
Quebec ou account of the discovery that
a contractor named Whclan had paid
the sum of $10,000 to Ernest Picaud,
editor of the French paper, L'Elecleur,
of thiB Oity, to secure the passage
through the Local Legislature of a big
claim of Whelan's against tlie Government for the construction of the Quebec
Court House. Picaud says he paid out
money to remove the opposition of the
Conservative members, but refuses to
give the name of persons to whom he
paid the money. If Picaud persists in
his refusal to give the names it is said
that an action for libel will be taken
against him by the Conservative members of the Legislature to compel him
to speak.
Acquiti:e<1 In Five Minute*.
Port Townsend, May 10.—Tho celebrated charivari caso from Lopez Island,
which has been on trial here the past
four days, ended last night in the acquittal of the defendant. This is the most
important case of the kind that has ever
been held in the courts of Washington.
The outcome of it should forever put a
stop to the wild and barbarous charivari. The prosecution could not have
made a stronger case. The evidence
showed that the defendant, Martin Phillips, took his bride to their home on
Lopes. Island on December 10, arriving
there about 8:30 o'clock in the evening.
Half an hour later the charivari party
came. The party was made up of eight
young men, all friends and neighbors of
the defendant, Phillips, and one of them
his nephew. The boys fired a shot aud
began beating their cans when in the
lane in front of Phillips' house. ThiB
lane ran through his place, but was
used as a public highway by the neighbors. Four of the boys went inside the
yard.
When the shot was fired Phillips
grabbed his shotgun and ran outside,
ordering the hoys to leave. The night
was very dark but the boys, knowing
from his tone of voice that Phillips was
mad, turned and ran down the lane.
The noise made in beating the cans was
mistaken by Phillips for another attack
and he fired in the direction of it, but
aiming to strike the ground, thinking to
scare the intruders nud frighten them
away. The shot struck Johnny Graham, a nephew of Phillips, and John
Hall. Hall died six days later from the
effects of these wounds. Phillips was
indicted for murder, and was granted a
change of venue from San Juan county,
ou account of the bitter feeling against
him there. The case was begun Monday May 12. Every point was stubbornly contested hy opposing counsel. The
state was ably represented by J. J. Calhoun, A. R. Coleman and John Trumbull. Colonel James Hamilton Lewis
and George H. Jones appeared for the
defendant. The defense conducted its
cuse on the theory that the charivari
was a riotous act, aud that the defendant had a right to protect the sanctity
of his home, even to the extent of shoot-
lug members of the party. The plea of
Colonel James Hamilton Lewis was the
finest ever heard in Port Townsend.
Tlie jurv retired nt U h'nlndr Inat. night;
and returned jiiBt five minutes later
with a verdict of acquittal.
Fighting the   Mttle Witanl.
New York, May 10.—The Herald Bays:
It is said thut George J. Gould is to be
retired from the presidency of the South
Pacific Mail Steamship Co. at the forthcoming annual election for officers of
that corporation. If this change is
brought about it will be the result of a
successful deal on the part of those veteran road diplomats, C. P. Huntington
of the Central Pacific and Henry Villard
of the North Pacific. It is stated upon
what appears to be good authority
that the majority of the Pacific Mail
Company's stool* has already been transferred to the names of Messrs, Hunting*
ton and Villard or their representatives,
for the purpose of enabling them to oust
the son of the' 'little wizard." Mr. Villard
is credited with playing the most active
part in tiie game, for, as will be readily
understood, the consummation of such
a deal under the control of the President
of the Northern Pacific Railway
Company, might lead to great advantages for a rise in the way of
traffic arrangements with the Pacific
mail. It ia also apparent that Mr. Huntington would not be in the scheme unless he saw profit in it for his railroad
company. The future plans of the Vil-
Inrd-Huntington alliance in regard to
the Pacific mail can, of course, only be
surmised by inquisitive gossips in railroad nud financial circles, but it is
known that their intention is to place
ut the head of the Pacific Mail Co., if
they succeed in defeating the re-election
of President Gould, Capt. John McLach-

$ditoi_ Columbian—Sir—If. the poo-,
pie have any doubts about Premie*
Robson's true position on the Redistribution Act, his speech lust night at
Vancouver, and his Church Street subsidised apologist's menial appeal to the
people or this district for pardon and
mercy, fully expose the Premier's unhappy plight. But this is not the first
time that "honest John" has appeared
bofore the people of this city and district
as a beggar. It has been by his begging
appeals that he has been able to keep
his head above water since his first appearance in the Province.     Elector.
WILL MB. BOIISON EXPLAIN?
Editor Coi.umiiian.—Sir.--1 believe
that at his public meeting at Vancouver
last night the Hon. Mr. Hobson stated
that during the period of the last four
Years the Government had expended on
the Mainland $000,000, and on the IB-
land only $500,000 uud he attempted
thereby to show thut the former hud the
lion's share. Did not Mr. Robson include the $300,0000 dry dock money in
the sum he mentioned? If so he Bhould
debit the Islund the $750,000 it receives
for its railway. The figures then would
be Island $1,250,000, Mainland $000,000.
Mr. Robson please explain 1 May I ask
further, if Mr. Robson intends to assist
in focussing all the great industries of
the Province towards Vancouver?
Yours truly,
An Elector.
MINERS ON STRIKE.
Nine Hundred Mlni.ru go ou Strike for
Shorter Hours.
NewB reached Victoria Monday afternoon that a general strike wus in progress at the Wellington collieries, owned by Robt. Dunsmuir A Sons. Enquiries being made, it was learned that
the miners have become disaffected over
the hours of labor, and have demanded
that some change be mnde. To explain
this it will be necessary to show how
the present hours of labor are arranged,
and to give alao an outline of what the
men demand. There are three shifts
worked in tlie mines during tho twenty-
four hours of the day and night, each
shift doing eight hours' actual labor.
Say one of these shifts goes to work at
seven o'clock in the morning; the men
work through to half-past three in the
afternoon with a half hour off for lunch.
It has been a rule for all the miners to
be in the mines nt the time the whistle
sounds for starting work, and to do thiB
it is necessary that the men should start
going down about half an hour before
the working time, bo that they mny be
on the scene of their labors at. the hour.
It alao takes about half un hour to
get them alt out at kucck-off time,
and to land them at  the   pit-head.
The men object to this, and say that
all the time taken up iu going into and
coining out of tho mines should be included in the eight hours, und on Sunday a formal complaint was made to
Mr. Bryden, the under-inanager, and
the millers stated that unless their demands were complied with, a general
strike would be ordered. Mr. James
Dunsmuir was also present, and while
ready to receive ii deputation of his own
employeos, refused to recognize tho committee sent to make terms, as none of
the men were in the employ of the Duns-
muirs, the committee being composed
of men from the Nuuaimo mines.  Mon-
Ian, present superintendent of the United States and Brazil Steamship Co., and
an old friend and associate of Mr. Hun
tington, who has great confidence In his
ability and experience. The annual
election of the Pacific Mail stockholders
will take place on May 28th and thero is
a good deal of work to do before that in
order to carry out the programme. Ab
to the reasons for opposing the re-election of President Gould, if they wero
traced back to the first cause it would
probably be found that Henry Hart Ib
at the bottom of the move. Mr. Hart
does not like "the little wizard" with
whom he had a furious tussle for the
control of the Pacific Mail stock about
two years ago, resulting in the complete
defeat of Mr. Hart and the loss to him
of many thousand dollars. Ever since,
through the influence of "the little
wizard," his boh George was made president of the Pacific Mail Co. Mr. Hart
has been watching and waiting for an
opportunity to even things up; using
the fact that there has been a steadier
decline of Pacific Mail stock ever since
young Gould has heen its president. Mr.
Hart haa induced other stockholders to
join him in making a fight on Gould at
the coming election. Upon what terms
Villard and Huntington have joined the
alliance can only be conjectured.
Indian School...
A return brought down iu tho House
of Commons last week shows the total
number of Indian schools under control
of the different religious denominations
to be: Church of England, 84, of which
21 are in the Western Territories, 27 in
Manitoba, 11 in British Columbia, 32 in
Ontario aud one in Quebec; Roman
Catholic, 80, of which 10 are in tho Territories, 10 in Manitoba, 0 in British

A Maiden Calendar.
Judging from yesterday's opening of
the assizes, it would seem ns though Bellamy's ideal is approaching, and thnt
ere long human naturo will be perfect,
and those who are alive will witness the
milenium. There was a clear calendar,
no offences to be tried, no punishments
to be meted out. The Grand Jury was
sworn in, and tho Petty Jury were in
attendance, simply to be told that they
were not required, that the sheriff only
called them out of good nature; that
Victorians were the best, most peaceful
and law abiding citizens of Her Majesty's
domains. The Grand Jury was composed of the following gentlemen:
iIcbbi'b. Robt. Ward (foreman), F. W.
Adams, R. A. Brown, A. St. G. Flint,
J. Fullerton, William Gordon, W. J.
Goepel, Geo. Gillespie, T. Haughton, A.
O. Flummerfelt, C. H. Kent, G. F. Matthews, Morris Moss, Thos. Matthews,
John Partridge, J. L. Stamford, and
Walter Walker. The sheriff told the
presiding judge, Mr. Justice Drake, so
much in effect, and as he neared the end
of his remarks, he fumbled with a fat
oblong parcel of tissue paper, from
which, nfter some rustling, lie extracted
"the tune honored pair of white kid
gloves." His lordship blushed a little,
nodded, smiled and placed them before
him. He replied that he thought it
was an unknown occurrence (for the
last twenty yeara at least) in the city of
Victoria that thero haa been a maiden
calendar, and that the Grand Jury hud
been called when there were no serious
offences to be tried. It wns quite truo
that there have been sundry Binall offences committed since the Inst assizes,
but they had been tried and disposed of
by speedy trials. But, as a matter of
fact, ho would tell them that their
duties were not confined to dealing with
indictments, but they had to meet to
consider public matters, such its nuisances or other complaints; it was even
their duty and privilege to bring forward any that they knew of. He had
great pleasure in accepting the presentation. The court then rose.— Wednesday's Colonist.
Where Wild Foul iiu.
Until the acquist-urn of Alaska by the
United States it was a mutter of wonder
where cortain wild fowl went when they
migrated from temperate climes on the
approach of summer as well as snowbirds nnd other small species of the
feathered tribe, Bays the Sitka Alaskan.
It was uftorwnrds found that their habitat iu summer wub the waters of Alaska,
the Yukon River and tho lakes of that
hyperborean region. A reporter recently Interviewed C. J. Green, of Norton
Sound, Western Alaska, and he confirms
the stntemont of Dull nud others. "People rt-onder whoro the wild fowl come
irom," said he. "They soo tho sandhill crane, wild goose, heron and other
fowl every spring and full pursue their
unwearied way, but liko the wind, they
do not know whence they come or
whither they go. Up ou Golovon Bay,
on the north shore of Norton Sound, Ib
the breeding place of these fowl. All
the birds in creation, seemingly, go"o
that country to breed, Geese, ducks,
swans, and thousands upon thousands of
Band-hill cranes nre s.vanning there all
the time. They lay their eggs in the
bluestein grass in the lowlands, uud if
Sou go up the river n littlo way from the
ay the noise of the wild fowl is almost,
deafening. Myriads of swallows and
robins are there, as woll aa millions of
magnificent grouae wearing red combs
and feathered moccasins. This grouse
turns white as snow in winter. You
can kill dozens of juicy teal ducks or
grouae us fat as butter-balls in a few
moments. The wild fowl uud hems live
on salmon berries, with which all the
hills are literally covered,"
POLITICAL NOTES.
It is reported that Mr. J. C. Henderson, of Chilliwack, will be a candidate
for election to the provincial parliament,
to represent the District. Mr. Henderson hus not announced himself through
the press, and it is just possible that the
rumor is incorrect.
Candidates are becoming so numerous
throughout the District that they are
said to bo as common as ice in February.
Somo of them aro sure to melt away
rapidly before the intense heat of the
election contest, while the lucky"'fcw
who are well packed away in nice cool
votes will survive the sultry season.
The meeting hold by the Hon. John
Robson ut Vancouver lust night ended
in uproar aud disorder. The lion, gentleman spoke for two and a half hours,
having promised to finish his sav in
that time. When time was up, however, he continued speaking but wns
not allowed to proceed und in the uproar that followed, Mr. Robson
nnd his friends left the Opera House by
the backdoor. The Hon. Premier opened
his remarks by giving the audience a
short sketch of his earlv lifo and struggles ; liia career in British Columbia and
tho accidents he met with at various
.times; his different occupations and
other interesting details, with which,
however, the Targe majority of our
readers are acquainted. Passing to politics he went over the many questions at
issue, and dwelt more particularly on
the mutter of redistribution, claiming to
havo done his host and to have adopted
the most proper course iu the circumstances. He advanced nothing
new, however, on tin? subject, and continued speaking on oilier matters until
the audience got tired listening and refused to hear him any longer. On the
stage were several Vancouverites and
Messrs. John Hendry and Thos. Cunningham of thia Oity.
Several of the candidates for the District are scouring the country from the
gulf to Popcum on both sides of the
river, securing, of course, nil the possible pledges of support iu advance of
the regularly nominated and requisitioned candidates.
Hon. John Robson will address a
meeting nt Herring's Opera House this
evening, nnd there is certain to bo a
large audience present. It ii to be
hoped the honorable gentleman will
be given a fair and patient hearing, and
that no unseemly disturbance will bring
discredit ou the city. Mr. Robson will
be the principal speaker, but it is to be
hoped he will not monopolize the whole
evening, or adopt the old practice of
talking against tunc. The public would
tike to hear several other gentlemen
who will be present, and who it is expected will be given a chance by the
honorable premier to speak. The meeting begins ut B o'clock.
Mr. John Kirkland has issued his address to the electors. He announces
himself an independent supporter of the
Government, but opposed to the fable
known as the "balance of power." The
uddress will appear in this paper tomorrow.
At the Vancouver meeting last night
the Hon John Robson declared that the
network of railways to be built in the
Province would aft focus at Vancouver,
und thnt all the great industries would
centre there. He promised to aid the
development of the city by all means in
his power, and claimed to be the father,
step-father or some other near relation
of Vancouver. Ho will probubly have a :
few important items focuased for Westminster at to-night's meeting; the sock-
thc salmon canneries, the saw mills and
n few othor matters over which he has
no control. Focussing is a great business, but it is a species of bosh which
the electors of Westminster examine in
landscupe form, with both eyes open
nnd not through a pockot camera.

WESTERN UNION  EXTENSION.
I.lnen to lie Built North to  Connect With
the Great Northwestern.
Mr. Frank Jaynes, Pacific coast superintendent of the Western Union Telegraph Company, was iu Seattle a few
days ago on his way south to San Francisco from British Columbia. He was
Been by n Post-Intelligencer reporter in
regard to the extension of the company's
lines north to the boundary line from
Seattle, and from him the following concerning the extension wns learned:
The compnny will immediately begin
the work of running lines from Snohomish junction to the boundary line to
connect with the lines of the Great
Northwestern Telegraph Company, of
Canada, running into Vancouver and
Now Westminster, nnd from Vancouver
to Victoria, und also from Olympla to
Port Townsend. On the first mentioned
line two wires will bo strung. It will
follow the Seattlo, Luke Shore A Eastern Railway, leaving it at Sedro, and
thence along the Fairhaven A Southern
and the Fairhaven A Northern to the
boundary line. It will, of course, take
in nil of the points along the Hues mentioned. The building of this extension
will be pushed with all possible  speed.
Mr. Jaynes stated that he was about
to let contracts for the poles, that a
large force of men would be employed
ns soon us needed, uud that the shipping of material would begin us soon as
it could be gotten ready. Ho added
that he expected to huve the line working to Vancouver between sixty and
ninety days. The line from Olympla wilt,
liko the line from British Columbia, be
of two wires. It will follow the survey
of tho Port Townsend A Southern Railway up along Hood's canal. This line
will not he completed until nfter the
other one is. but will bo gotten to work
on soon ns the slashing of timber of the
railroad survey is completed. The two
new lines will cost in the neighborhood
of $80,000.
An   Officer's Mistake.
Citv of Mexico, Mny 18.—The Mexican pnpers are giving undue importance
to the hurbide incident. Iturbidc is u
young man, now u second lieutenant of
cavalry, with no official standing,
though he hns some money which
enables him to mnke frequent trips to
the United States. During his last trip
he is reported to have said lie represented the Conservative pnrty. The local
press took up the mutter, when he
rushed into print, publishing a tetter in
which ho criticized the Government,
the Liberal party and President Diaz,
who ia commander-in-chief of the army.
For this he wns sent to a military prison. The authorities attach little importance to the affair, though they are
inquiring to ascertain whether he waB
instigated by others.

THE   "DISTRIBUTION"   OCTOPUS.
Politics make strange bed-fellows, it
has been said, and tbe forthcoming .Provincial election campaign bus developed
und discovered already some of the most
incongruous nnd suspicious coalitions
and combinations imaginable. Lifelong personal und political enemies of
prominent members of tlie Government,
In Victoria, tn this City, nnd In Boine
parts of the District, have experienced
Biich a sudden, ulmoBt violent, conversion iu the last few weolts a
to cause their friends, not behind the
scenes, to exclaim, with a surprise equal
to that of the men of old, who inquired
" Is Saul also among the prophets?"-
the modern version being, of course,
" Is Saul also nfter the profits?" To u
great many of our renders the facts hero
hinted ut nro well known, and tbe names
of the part ies referred to ure notorious,
ns much for thetr past bitter nnd industrious opposition to Hon. John Robson
und hia Government us for their ability
und disposition to look out for Number
One, whoever else would suffer. When
we repeat, therefore, that it has transpired since the opening of the present
campaign that these individuals have
smothered all their deep-seated personal and political prejudices and antipathies, and havo bitched their teams
to tbe Government apple-cart, the boldest may well hold his breath, while tho
orchestra strikes up—
"111 fares the state to hastening ills a pray;
Whore wealth aonumulntcs and mon decay
To the mournful tune of the "Dend
" March in Saul." In truth, "Yankee
" Doodle" would be a more approprinte
air to illustrate tlie rollicking gait at
which the country is travelling to ruin,
if half the reports of premeditated grabs
and steals thnt nre iu circulation are
true, and the general public—the honest
working man -mny depend upon it that
Buch sudden conversions nnd incongruous coalitions ns we have noted
above, aud which arc notorious to many
of our readers, have not come about
without a lively sense of favors to be received and advantages to be reaped on
both Bides. On the part of the Government, it never needed support more
during its existence than at the present
time, when, by ita wrong und erratic
course, it hus alienated the support of
honest men. The sudden converts, on
the other hand, have their oyes fixed
on the fat things of the country's.
be able nnd willing to turn their way as
n reward for services rendered in time
of need. We regret that there nppenrs
to be too much reason for making theso
damaging reflections upon the manner
in which the Government, us a whole,
is, and has been, for somo time, it is to be
feared, dealing with the natural wealth
of the Province, which it is supposed to
hold und administer in sacred trust for
the peoplo. There will bo precious
little of the land, timber and other
natural wealth of the Province loft for
the people, if the grabbers and monopolists are allowed to have their way
much longer with the "powers that be."
As more light is thrown upon the subject
from time to time, from various quarters,
the huge "cctopus of distribution!"
looms up in the shape of u gignntic ring
or combination of rings, having one arm
or tentacle wholly around and partly
within the Administration of the country, and the others reaching out in alt
directions to absorb ifnd distribute tho
very life blood—the natural resources—
of the Province, thus diverted from their
legitimate channels, into the insatiable
monopolistic maw and the ever-swelling
proportions of the monopolistic octopus.
These expressions are not exaggerated
figures of speech. On the contrary, it is
but drawing it mild, and giving a hint
merely of tho rascality that is rampant
in high places. We do not say that
every member of the Government is
equally involved in the iniquitous laxity
and corruption with which the resources
of the Province ure being administered;
but we do suy that things have come to
such n pass that, unless the electors of
the entire Province unite in sending
men of undoubted integrity and independence to tbe next Legislature, to institute a merciless inquisition into tho
corrupt transactions und wholesale misappropriations thnt nre going on nnd in
contemplation, there will soon bo nothing left thut the "octopusof distribution"
and its slimy brood will not have effectually surrounded. It is u cuse of
"going!" "going!" nnd the futul "gone!"
will ere long Hug in our cars unless the
"bone and sinew" of the country, the
farmers, the worklngmen, and nil
honeat enrners of their bread by the
sweat of their brow or tho toil of thoir
brain, step in und rescue tho remaining, already greased, morsel, for themselves nnd their children.
DEATH PENALTIES.
The punishments of the law year by
year become less terrible, until we almost seem to be reaching thnt ideal
state when overy element of revenge
will be wanting nnd offences against
society will be visited by firm, wise and
just results, affording alike protection
to good cithtens from evil doers, und
salutary menus of reform for the criminal. The avowed object of law is the
protection of the law-abiding nnd the
correction of the bnd citizen. Revengo
is too huso a passion for justice to Indulge in, and thus we seo that the
punishments of to-day are more merciful, and tho prison housea more cleanly,
than those of a few decades past. It
was not bo vory long ugo that
the forger, sheep stealer, and even
the poor wretch driven by hunger to
theft, were adjudged too vile to livo in
this virtuous world, nnd wore quickly
sent before their Maker with short
shrift and a long rope. i
The murderer of the future will pro-1
bably find a far less terrible fate awaiting him than did the criminal of the
past, for electricity, bo swift and mys-
steriouB in its work, will probably prove
entirely painless. How much more
merciful and less revolting should death
be at the hands of the electrician than
the tortures inflicted to-day in Central
Asia, for example, where the culprit is
buried up to his shoulders and then left
to periBh. The inhuman ineanB of execution resorted to in mediteval times
may be exemplified by the Nuremburg
Virgin, an engine which clasped the victim in nrms bristling with poignarda,
then opening dropped the body down a
trap to n cradlo of swords arranged to
cut it to pieces, n running stream below
quickly effacing all traces of it. ThiB
diabolical invention had its origin in
Spuin, nnd wus introduced to Germany
in 15113. Crucifixions by the Romans were
multiform. In some cases the victim
was suspended head downwnrdB, nnd iu
others the cross wus made X shape.
The rope, the lover, tho pulley, the
crank, were ull called into requisition
by tho doscondents of Romulus, who
displayed u surprising degree of inventive genius in machines for tho infliction of torture. To hurl criminals from
the Tarpeian Rock was a mild corrective.
Our Saxon forefathers, however, knew a
thing or two in the punishment line,
and would sacrifice thoir prisoners by
caging them in a wicker image uud then
sotting it on fire.
The torture chamber of the Tower of
London reveals many revolting facts.
The cruelties of the seventeenth and
eighteenth centuries were terrible. The
rack, the iron necklace, the "Scavenger's Daughter," aud tlie thumb-screw
were as common then as the plank bed
is now. Between the years 1620 and
1000, no fewer than 20,000 people wore
condemned-to torture and death in Leipzig alone. Of the horrors of the Reign
of Terror enough haB been told. Of the
use of boiling oil, the garotte, the iron
boot, and numberless other equally
cruel means of execution, it may be
aaid that their only parallels to be found
to-day are in China, where cruelty is
developed aud cultivated as n fine art
Iu these degenerate dayB, when Christian explorers like Mr. Stanley are
found crying out against pence societies,
the press, Quakerism, and other equally
obnoxious institutions, the criminal
mny congratulate himself upon his lines
having fallen in pleasant places, and it
is by no means impossible that some
day even electricity will have to go, and
a future generation decide that the
death penalty in any shape or form is
merely a survival of a somewhat polished, perhaps, but still a barbaric nge.

THE DAILY COLUMBIAN, NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C.f MAY 21, 1890.
A TRIFLE  PESSIMISTIC.
Drop ft Tear for tlio Wife While Voa
Laugh at tho Hatband.
Early in the oentury there lived in
Edinburgh a well-known grumbler
named Sandy Blaok, whose oft-recurring
fits of spleen or indigestion produced
some amusing scenes of senseless irritability which were highly relished by all
except tbo fellow's good, patient little
wife. One morning, says the New York
Ledger, Sandy rose bent on a quarrel,
The haddics and tho eggs were excellent, done to a turn, and had been ordered by himself tho previous evening;
but breakfast passed without tbe looked-
for compliment.
"What will you have for dinner, Sandy?" asked Mrs. Blaok.
"A chicken, madam," said the husband.
"Roasted or boiled?"
"Confound it! madam, if you had
been a good and considerate wifo you
would have known before this
what I liko!" Sandy growled out as,
slamming tbe door, he'left the house.
It was in the spring, and a friond who
was present heard his little wife say;
"Sandy'sbent ona disturbance to-day.
I shall not please him, do what I will."
Tho dinner-time camo, and Sandy and
his friend sat down to dinner. Tho fish
woa oaten in silence, und on raising tbe
cover of tho dish bofore him in a towering passion tho former called out:
"Boiled chiiskon! That's it, madam!
'Achicken boiled is a uhlckenspoiled!'"
Immediately the cover was raised from
another chicken roasted to a turn.
"Madam, I won't eat roast chicken!"
roared Sandy. "You know vory woll
how it should havo been cooked." At
that instant a broiled chicken with
mushrooms was placed on tho table.
"Without green peas!'1 roared the grumbler.
"Here they are, my dear," said MrH.
IBank.
"Uowdaro you spend my monoy in
this nmiinoi'?"
"Thoy were a present," said bis wife.
Rising from his ohair, Sandy clenched
his fist and shouted:
"How daro you receive presonts without my leave?"
LONDON   BOOKSELLERS.
They Ar? Not ns Kntevprlslng; iih Their
Amortcm.. Cm.ii-t.titorn.
Nearly overy book-dealer in London
._. a publisher. Consequently, if you
seek a particular book it is bard to procure it at onco unless you know tbe
name and location of the publishing
houso. Thore are certain dealers—notably tlatohnrd, in Piccadilly—who will
get any book that is in print and can bo
got; hut, writes Eugene Field in the
Chicago News, they require timo. Go
into any shop and ask for an item and
tho chances are nine to one that tbo answer will be: "No, we havon't it, butwc
can got it for you."
In every littlo nine-by-four shop you
boar talk about "our factory" "Wo
shall havo to send down to our factory"
Tor this article or that. This sort of
thing makes even strong men very
weary.
After inquiring in vain athulf a do7.cn
shops for a copy of .lames Whitcomb
Rlloy's pooms I 'made tho long journey
to Paternoster Row and upplied for the
book sit Longman's, tho publisher. 1
was referred to a dealer j_n St. Paul's
Churchyard. Thither I proceeded. They
woro nil out of the book, but could get
me one. "How soon can you got it?" I
asked, "In a week or tan days," they
aid. "Whore do you have Logo for it?"
I asked. "To tho publisher's," they
answered. "My friends," said I. "I
have traveled four miles for that book
and 1 am going tc camp here till 1 got
The publisher's is only one minute's
walk from bore—now fetch mo that
book!"
Very fow of the second-hand book-shop
keepers know what they have in stock.
You aak then) for a certain book and
Mny shake their beads, when tbo
chutices pro that several copies of tbo
book you want ure conspicuously displayed upon their ..helves. Thoir so-
called catalogues are not worth much,
because they include, in most cases,
only tho high-priced books. Tho real
curiosities arc to bo found not in the catalogues, but upon the top and bottom
shelves of the dusty stalls.
SCENT  IN   HORSES.
Finn and Deep Emotions Dependent on
the Hense of Smell.
The finest and docpest emotions of a
dog seem to ho dependent on his sense
of smell. Not only does bo tarry on his
biii-incss of huntitigor guarding through
its aid, but bis devotion to his master
and his recognition of lesser friends depend largely upon his nose. According
to Horse and Stable, another among tho
humbler friends of man is keen and delicate of scent.
Tho horse will leave muBty hay un-
ouchod in his bin, no matter bow
mngry ho may be. However great bis
hirst, ho will not drink of water objec-
ionablo to his questioning sniffs, nor
ro.-ii a buekot made in the least degree
..Tensive,
His intelligent nostril will widen,
[Uiverand query over the daintiest bit
iffcrcd by tho fairest of hands. A mare
s novor satisfied, either by sight or
rhinny, that a colt is really hor own
ititil sbe has certified the fact by means
if her nose.
Blind horses will, as a rule, gallop
. ildly about a pasture without striking
he surrounding fence. The sense of
moll informs thorn of its proximity.
Hhera, when let out from their stables,
vlll go directly to tho gato leading to
heir accustomed feeding-ground, and
vhen desirous of returning, after hours
)f careless wandering, will distinguish
hat ono outlot and patiently await its
iponlng. The odor of that particular
>art of the fence serves as their guide.
' Nervous and timorous as this noble
tnimal is known to be, his fears are, of
[ourse, doubled by this keenness of
sent, for not only does the oyo inform
fim of danger, buk the nostrils also
Braid its presence. Tbe niero scent of
'buffalo robe is sufficient to cause ex-
h'lno terror in many horses, and Rome,
lenting tho smoke of a train which has
|ng since passed, show all tho foai
Hiked by its actual presence.

From the' North.
The steamer Barbara Boscowitz, from
the Naas and Skeeua rivers, arrived at
Victoria Saturday afternoon, having
made the round trip with the finest of
fine weather in less than ten days, No
news of importance was brought from
the North, and the only ship spoken
was the Sardonyx, which was passed nt
Departure Bay bound down. She broke
two blades of her propeller on a rock at
Cunningham's wharf, and. wnB delayed
two days by the mishap. She also lost
an anchor and chain at Smith's Inlet.
The Boscowitz' freight consisted of a
quantity of box lumber for M. Smith,
several large bates of furs for Mr. Henry
Simpson, aud several tons of mineral
rock from n new location in Johnston's
Straits, which Mr. Ralph, the prospector, is taking to San Francisco for crushing and analysis. About two hours
behind the Boscowitz, the Sardonyx arrived. She had nine first-class aud a
number of steerage passengers, and a
heavy freight.

continuous. Tho principal points of

The Provincial Exhibit Association
of British Columbia requests farmers

up, if they arrive in good order. Exhibitors will incur no expense unless
they deslro to enter for n competition,

Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla,
Lacrosse    Qluh   Meeting,
A general meeting of the Westminster
Lacrosse Club was' held last night at
Messrs. Mowat A Sloan's office. Thero
wub n good attendance of members, and
the business on hand was disposed of
rapidly, Tho committee on constitution
reported, and their report with some
slight amendments was adopted. On
motion it wqs resolved to organize a
junior toam, to be governed by a managing committee of four and a field captain, the latter to act under tho senior
team captain. It was also decided to invito all memhera of the juniors to affiliate with tho seniors, The secretary
was instructed to correspond with the
Victoria and Vancouver clubs, and arrange, if possible, n series of exhibition
gamoH to be played outside of the championship mutches. This, it is justly
argued, will promote a greater interest
in the game, and keep tho players always in good practice. If possible, the
firBt practice match will be played on
Saturday June 7th, either at this city or
Arancouver. The committee appointed
to consider the proper disposal of tho
cup presented to tne club by Mayor
Brown, was granted further time to report.   The meeting then adjourned.

Interrupted hy the I.nrf.
Last evening a gentleman by the
name of John Patterson, visited the
house of a lady friend of the Siwnsh
nation, down in the west end, John
had come prepared to enjoy himself to
tho utmost and was well supplied with
money; so thnt liquor and other refreshments were soon provided aud the
visitor, for a season, participated in nil
the delights of the Mohammedan paradise. The festivities had proceeded
about ns far ns they usually, proceed ou
such occasions, and Mr. Patterson was
just nbout to congratulate himself on
having had, most probably, the very
best time he ever did have, when the
door wns thrust rudely open nnd a man
stalked in. By the faint light in the
room John distinguished the nickel-
silver buttonson tho policeman's coat aud
immediately sprang up, enunciating his
sentiments in rather unparliamentary
language. The burly guardian of the
peace, however, seriously advised John
to put ou his hat and come
up to the police station. Mr. Patterson,
with many curses on the luck and the
police, and tho laws of thi? country, ar
rayed himself as ordered, and enme
shiveringly forth, accompanied by the
policeman and the Siwash lady. This
morning before the magistrate Mr. Pat
terson boldly confessed his misdemeanor, nnd expressed unfeigned surprise
that tho lnw should Btoop to interfere in
such matters. The magistrate also expressed unfeigned surprise at the affecting and astonishing innocence of Mr.
Patterson, nnd said that it wns more in
sorrow than in linger,more out of tender
regard for Mr. Patterson's future good
health, and merely to teach him a valuable lesson at tho cheapest rates known
to this court, that he would request
Mr. Patterson to "fork over" $15 for tho
suid lesson and $2.50 for tho trouble he
had caused the court in compelling it to
nsk the samo. As for the lady, nothing
less than $25 nnd $2,50 costs could ever
soothe the injury dono to tlio laws of the
country by her misconduct. John pnid
both fines like a man nnd sorrowingly
went his way.
CHILUWACK CHIPS.

Tho excursion to tho Hot Springs on
Thursday Inst was quite a success, the
One steamer Delaware having been
chartered for the occasion. Afew friends
of the captain camo up on tho Delaware
Wednesday, and nt nine o'ctock Thursday morning tho stenmor left for her
trip, just alive with passengers, especially tho little ones for whose benefit tho
excursion was got up. Noticeable among
the pnrty were some politicians, who
expected to do a wholesale business canvassing that day, and, if kissing the
babies and praising their mothers wus
any help to them, thoy ought to have
dono a good business. Mr. Townsond is
canvassing this part of the district for
tho Commons, and Messrs. Herring nnd
Sinclair for the Provincial House.
Chilliwack, May 20.—County Court
wns held horo yesterday, nud three
cases were disposod of, Judgo Bolo presiding, Solomon vs. Nevon—Judgment
for plaintiff for $15,75 and half costs.
Campbell vs. Miller and Atkinson—This

repairs to press. The Hon. Judgo Bole

Keever, J. Armstrong, P. McGee, 11
Thompson and F. Lickinun. Judgment
for plaintiff with costs. Tiernan vs. Corporation—Judgment for plaintiff for $37,
without costs.
Election matters were very warm yesterday. Mr. J. 0. Henderson wus requested to stand for tho local House,
and tins consented. Ho will poll a very
large majority of tho votes hero, as he is
very popular. Some two or three of our
political aspirants nro thinking of offering themselves for your city,
To   be   Commenced at   Once, Will ho a
Maffiiifloent Structure and nn Ornament to   the City.
The work on the new court houso
buildings is to bo commenced in so
short a time from tho present date that
it is not nt all improbable that next
week will see the first sod on Government Square turned for this laudable
object. The plans nnd specifications of
Mr. G. AV. Grant, us is well known, found
favor in the eyes of the Government by
reason of thoir great excellence. Tho
contract for tho undertaking has been
let to Messrs, W. Turnbull A Co. A
short description of the dimensions and
general appearance of the building may
prove acceptable at tho present time,
The structure will occupy the major
part of that pieco of land east of the
present court house, and will tower into
the air to a distance of threo stories.
The foundation will be entirely of native
granite and most solidly constructed;
the superstructure will be compoaed of
brick with handsome galvanised iron cornices, nud stono and cement trimmings;
tho cement will be laid on in the
form of bunds around tho entire
building, giving a very artistic and
chaste ornamentation to the whole.
The main entrance, which will be ou
Clarkson street, will consist of a grace
ful arch springing from pillars; tho
door wuyund filling in being richly
ornamented und the whole effect very
imposing, A double flight of stone stops
will lend, up to the door way from the
grounds. On the first floor will bu the
Government ugent'H office, u largo well
ventilated und well lighted chamber
withallthemodcrnappurteuuncesofcum-
fortand sun Ration. ThoGovernmentrond
inspector will also have a similar office
iu tho other side of the building and the
remainder of tho first floor will bo used
for general nnd private offices. The two
offices mentioned first will bo fitted with
fire nnd burglar proof vaults. The registry office will bo one of tho most important departments on this floor and it
will be on the samo scale as tho Government agent's, with vaults and other accommodations; At the rear of the building, on the first floor, will be tho lavatories, furnace room and other necessary
offices. These will contain the best
sanitary nnd scientific appliances, and
will be very commodious. Ascending
the fine spacious ntairwuy. the second
floor will bo reached and on it will be
found the sheriffs offlco; registrar's do-,
partment, the county court judgo's
chambers, the jury room uud, most important of all, the court room itself, u
noble chamber of vast dimensions; it
measures 40x00 feet and tho ceiling is
lofty, the light and ventilation perfect
and we arrangement of the room admirable. At tho Clnrkson street cud of the
court room will be the bench nnd bar
and jury quarters, the rest of the hull
will be the auditorium, giving ample
room for a very largo audience. To the
east Bide of the court room aro the cells,
where prisoners will be kept in waiting
till their ense is called. The court room
will be finished in a style commensurate
with its grand dimensions. Tho third
floor of the building will not
bo used at once, but will consist of
minor offices and documentary store
rooms and other apartments necessary
in a building of this description. The
roof will be slated and bo of the high-
ridge variety. Every part of the building will bo lighted, heated nnd ventilated nfter the most approved modern
style. Gas will be usea for lighting and
hot water for healing., The sanitary arrangements will be of the best kind, and
tho lavatory will bo floored and the
walls lined with slate. The finishing of
the building, outsido and inside, will be
completed in first-class style,, nnd undoubtedly the edifice will Ue ono of the
finest public buildings on the Pacific
Const, and probably the most imposing
in this city. The grounds around the
building arc to be laid out in first-rate
landscape-gardening stylo,with terraces,
walks and ornamental shrubs. Over
the grand arch nt tho main entrance tho
imperial arms will bo enrved in stone,
touching off the general appearance of
tho structure in a very artistic, manner.
It is quite probable that Clnrkson
street will be widened ao as to be a little
more in cdnsonanco with the sizo of the
Court Houso buildings. McKenzie
street would certainly not suffer by a

[From Onr Own Corresimndent,}
Langley, May 20.—Tho choice of representatives for the Legislative Assembly and for the House of Commons, at
Ottawa, must now be made for New
Westminster District, nnd at this election good and true men should be sought
out, who would vote in both Houses for
the real interests of tho Province, irrespective of party connections. This
electoral district, it is expected, will be
faithful to its colors, und return only
men on whom it cun depend to promote such measures ns will tend to the
passing of comprehensive enactments of
general utility for tho advancement of
the Provinco ns a whole. This newfangled notion of the balance of power
must be abandoned, if wo of tho Mainland aro to be considered as an element
in local legislation at all. The Islanders
deserve every credit for what they havo
done through thoir members in tho pnst,
chiefly for themselves; but British Columbia is now in n state of vigorous
growth, and the Island should early bo'
taught to recognize this, aud submit to
the coming inevitable equitnblc distribution of provincial revenue for tho
good of thu people ou tho Mainland us
well ns ou tho Island. "Separation" is
out of the question. A fair apportionment for tho formation of roads on tho
Mainland, to open up this great country
—compared witli which the Island is
but u small portion—should bo a first
desideratum. This, when even gradually
accomplished, will, with every now industry, dovelop our resources, tup our
reservoirs of mineral and agricultural
wealth, nnd pour prosperity into this
highly favored Provinco of tho Dominion. It behoves, not only thoso of our
district, but also of all tho olectornl
divisions of tho Provinco of British
Columbia, to select men of steady and
wise antecedents, in whom they have
confidence, to advocate the general good
in the future Local Legislature, as well
ns iti thnt of tho Dominion of Canada,
and who will see thnt the requirements
of British Columbia nro not lightly to bo
overlooked in our Houso of Commons.
We observe with pleasure thut the
commemoration of the birthday of our
gracious Queen will bo held in our district at Derby (formerly proposed as tho
Bite of the Royal City) by n number of
your worthy townsmen—tho I.O.O.F.—
who have chartered at a low tariff for
their members nnd friends the fine
stenmor Delaware for tho occasion. Wo
bid all ii hearty welcome, and doubt hot
that thoy will enjov their loyal celebration of our beloved sovereign's natal
day with much gratification, on this
portion of tho noble river side of- tho
municipality of Langley.
