German   Success.
Berlin, May 13.—The German expeditionary force, under command of Major
Weissman, bombarded and captured the
town of Lindy on the Southern coast
Lie^M juebar. .	
Howard for  Services.
Bjehlin, May 18.—It Is given out that
Lieutenant Gravcnrunth, who distinguished himself by defeating Chief Bu-
shire and by other important services
under Major Weissman, will soon be appointed to nn important German post in
West Africa.	
Corrupt Officers.
Berlin, May 13.—Naval officers Warre-
hold, Haepclmuth and Leuleky have
been respectively sentenced to thirty,
twenty-seven and one month's imprisonment. Tlie officers were found guilty of

for passing naval stores.

Delano, Cal., May 13.—A Frenchman
in full uniform arrived here last night
on his way to Los, Angeles, where lie
claims to have friends. He says that he
served 12 years iu the French army at
Tunis, Africa. He had some trouble
with a lieutenant whom he whipped,

had to serve five years hard labor.
OU on the Troubled Waters.
S..x Francisco, May 13.—Most of the
captains of sailing craft on this coast
have beeu notified of a novel sort of com-
etitiou, namely, in the use of oil atsea.
'rom the replies of several sailing masters it appears that considerable interest
will be taken in the competition. The
idea of the competition originated witli
the Chamber of Commerce of Bordeaux,
France, some time ago. That body,
desirous of encouraging the use of oil bv
masters of vessels, and to induce thorough
trials of the recent adaptation, has
offered a serieB of prizes for the best
reports, based on actual experience, received bv January 30th, 1891. It is understood that a number of tests are to be
made on this coast both in northern and
southern latitudes.
Stanley Interviewed.
London, May 12.-r-In an interview
witli a representative of the United
Press to-day, Henry M. Stanley said he
was wearied with English apathy in
African affairs, and with her compliant
acquiescence in the German policy of
aggression. It was, in Stanley's opinion, a policy, which if adhered to, would
result in German influence and interests
becoming paramount in the African continent. Stanley further said it was on
his advice Germany sent her representatives to Africa in 1885, aud he added, since that time his advice has been
repeatedly sought and accepted by Germany. Stanley also said the Kaiser and
fatherland were one in a hearty support
of Major Wisman's attempt to imbue
Africa with German views, and he believed that the German expedition was
divined to meet to a full extent the extension of German colonial aspirations.
Brain's   Defence.
Cairo, May 12.—Emin Pasha iu a
letter under date of Bagamoya, March
31st, and addressed to Doctor Tncehi-
netti of this city, says that at the moment of bis leaving the hospital at Bagamoya he found himself beset by English and German antagonistic importunities. Emin adds he became coil-
firmed iu his intention to re-enter the
interior of Africa under German alienees when he learned that the Eng-
isli were unwarrantably using his name
hi connection with that of Stanley to
advance British interests in Africa.
Tippoo Tib, Emin Pasha says, knows
the whole history of Africa, and its recital will cause a marked sensation.
This most signifinut matter has in one
of its concluding sentences "that of
Stanley will be the first to atir the people against me."
Germany's Position.
Berlin, May 12.—In the Reichstag
to-day Von Bierberstein, German Imperial Foreign Secretary, made a statement explanatory of Emin Pasha's African mission. He stated that it would
be confined to the opening of friendly
relations with tlie tribes of the interior
of Africa within the sphere of German
interests and the forming of estimates
of cost of the establishment of several
forts. In treating of English interests
lu Africa he said it was Germany's predominating wish to tro hand-ih'hand
with England in the cultivation of interests common to both countries. Their
object was not to acquire as much territory as possible, but to keep together
that which was naturally connected by
course of water ways of communication.
On this point he asserted Germany haB
prepared to come to. an understanding
with England.

formally recognized the republic of
Brazil.
A vigilance committee has been formed at Port Simon, Costa Rica, for tbe
protection of life and property.
-tMost of the Indians who revolted

Crime Brought to Light.
Marysvillk, Cala., May 13.—Two human skeletons, believed to be those of
white men, were unearthed a few days
ago in digging on a ranch on Feather
River, about midway between Marys-
villeaud Oraville. In the early days
there was a noted hostelry there known
as "Charley's Ranch," and old residents
recollect that in the fall of 1858 two
men mysteriously disappeared at that
place. They were packers, and pitched
their camp a short distance above the
hotel. On the evening of thoir arrival
they drank freely, but refused to gamble. They left the hotel about midnight and were never seen again. A
few days later a noted gambler took |»s-
sessiou of their pack animals and other
effects, displaying a bill of sale of the
property. The missing men were known
to have a considerable sum of money In
their custody belonging to other parties.
and a report wob spread that they haa
absconded with it, but the discovery of
the skeletons in the spot where thore
was no surface indication of a grave puts
the disappearance of the two men in a
new light, and suggests robbery nnd
murder.    _____	
Dominion   Parliament.
Ottawa, May 12.—The House of (torn-
inons got rid of two disagreeable duties
this afternoon. Although Mr Rykert
resigned, it still remained for the House
to adopt tho report of the committee that
his conduct hud heen discreditable, corrupt and scaudalous. This was done today unanimously. Mr. Rykert has
appealed to his old constituents and iB
conducting an active canvass, thinking
that a verdict from his constituents will
rehabilitate him. There is a pou*' tllty
that this shameful event may happen.
The next matter was the report of the
committee which investigated the looting by Sir Frederick Middleton of Clias.
Breinner's furs. The committee reported that his conduct was discreditable
and illegal. Hon. Edward Blako led the
attack and scored tho Gonoral unmercifully. The report was carried. The
General may resign his high offices.
There Is considerable disappointment
that the Government has made no appropriation for the Hudson's Bay Railway.
. Mr. Cockburu enquired whether the
PoBtmuster-ticneral had received communications from the Imperial Federation League in Canada and from the
Boards of Trade of Toronto, Montreal,
Hamilton. St. Thomas, St. John, New
Brunswick, Vancouver and other places,
urging the necessity of the adoption of a
penny postage system for the British
Empire. Postmaster-General Ilaggart
replied in the affirmative, and facetiously added thut "the matter was under
tlio consideration of the Government.1
Imperial Parliament.
London, May 12.—In the House of
Commons this evening, Sir J. G, S, Kin-
lock, the member for East Perth, asked
the Government to allow tho importation of store cattle from Virginia, which
lie claimed were always free from pleuropneumonia. Mr, Chaplin, the president
of the Board of Agriculture, denied that
Virginia cattle were always free from
pleuro-pneumonia, and referred to the
reports of tho American Department of
Agriculture in proof of his assertion.
Ou that showing tlte Government could
not make an exception of Virginia cattle.
Mr.' Ritchie, the president of the
Local Government Board, moved the
second reading of the Local Taxation
Bill, dealing with licenses to public
houses. The purpose of the Government in proposing that part of the sums
allocated to local finances should be
used for the purchase of licenses was, he
declared, to promote temperance. He
appealed to the temperance party to
recognize existing facts, public opinion
would not support them in trying to reduce to beggary people who were doing
a legitimate business.
Mr. W. T. Craine (Unionist) moved
that the bill be rejected. The temperance party, he said, could not assent to
a measure providing for the use of public money to buy up liquor traffickers.
Sir. George O. Trevelyan opposed the
bill. If the principle of compensation
were admitted, he contended, it would
involve the devotion to It of $250,000,000,
besides killing all hope of local option.

Tlie Crank's Progress.
London, May 12.—Tho cheerful cynic,
George Francis Train, embarked safely
on the Ktnuiafor Now York to-day,
goodly company bf admiring Americans
being present to bid him ban voyage. The
papers devoto a good deal of space to
Mr. Train, but seem quite puzzled as to
his proper classification, whether among
the geniuses or the cranks of America.
The former rating ii insisted upon by
some writers who remember him as the
brilliant Inventor and orator of days
fone by, aud who remind us that we are
ndebted to him for our tramcars, while
less favorable comment is made by
others, who also cannot convince themselves that the genial philosopher's expressions of anarchistic sentiments
should be condoned. All agree at least
that in his present enterprise he is
likely to succeed in beating all previous
records.
OTTAWA   NEWS.
Sudden    Death   of   a   Member—Great
fleliure of Lottery Tickets.
(From Onr Own Correspondent.)
Ottawa, May 13.—Mr. Hudspurtli,
member for North Victoria, died suddenly yesterday.
The Minister of Customs lias caused
the seizure in this city of Louisiana
lottery -tickets to the value of some
five hundred dollar*.
The question of the Hudson Bay Railway charter came tip for discussion today.
Sir John A. McDonald referred hi
touching terms to the death of Mr.
Hudspurtli, and was followed by Messrs,
Blake and Barron.
Mr. Watson moved an amendment to
refer back to the committee tlie report
of the committee ot' the whole on the resolutions granting subsidies iu land to
certain railway companies in Manitoba
and the Northwest Territories.
CITY COUNCIL.
King  Leopold*! Trouble*.
London, May 12.--Still another King's
troubles must be chronicled, that of
Leopold, of Belgium. His are of a financial nature, for in his thirst for glory,
which comes of founding a new state,
he has neglected to provide for the funds
necessary to the proper maintenance of
such a luxury. Tho Congo Free State
will be a nourishing nation some day,
no doubt, but at present it furnishes
hardly enough revenue to satisfy the
needs or, perhaps, it Bhould be said, the
wants of the patriots who consent for a
consideration to run it. As a remedy
for the condition of affairs it Is proposed
to, in a sense, strike the word "free"
ont of the nation's rule, in other words,
to abolish the freedom of trade iu the
Congo region. The proposal wilt be
made to the Slavery Conference, and if
favorably acted upon, a duty of 10 per
cent, will be levied upon all merchandise, the proceeds to be used in recouping King Leopold's private fortune,
which is said to have boen considerably
trenched upon Iu the bolstering up of
this enterprise of the Belgian monarch.
What will become of the tariff after the
King's advances have been made good
is not stated, hut the general impression
is that it will be kept up for the benefit
of the infant industries that will be
relied upon to spring up along the
Congo.
King taopold, by the way, arrived in
London to-day to take part to-morrow
in tlio elaborate ceremonies attendant
upon the unveiling at Windsor of the
Jubilee statue of the late Prince Consort. The party of guests will be
moderately large, but very distinguished, only royalty and the nobility, with
very few exceptions, being honored by
invitations.	
Hloteoue Chlneie.
San Fra.noibco, May 8.—A Chronicle's
Los Angeles special says; What lias long
beeu expected transpired about eight
o'cloek this evening. The two warring
factions of Chinatown caine together,
and tho result was a Hot. Ono Chinaman was shot aud killed, one seriously
wounded and a white bystander was
shot in the leg. The tight arose on
Marcessuult alley, and waB caused by
Ah Lung, a member of the Mow faction,
crushing against Wong Ki Lung, a member of the Wong Chce faction. Wong
Ki Lung drew a revolver and fired at An
Lung. The bullet passed through hiB
stomach, producing death in a short
time, The firing of the first shot waB
the signal for a fusillade from all Bides,
Fully forty shots were fired from windows nnd l.y Chinamen on the street.
The police soou quelled the incipient
riot, A Chinaman named Wong was
shot through the legs, and Henry Woods,
white, was injured. About 300 guns
have arrived in the city from San Francisco in the past few days, consigned to
members of the WongCnee faction, who
gave notice that they proposed to kill
every prominent member of the Ah Mow
faction. The police arrested all the
Chinamen they could find to-night who
carried revolvers. About 100 were
found. It is believed the murderer of
Ah Lung is in custody, but he has not
been positively identified.

Burns had gone to another contractor
and asked him to support what he
(Burns) had said, but tbo contractor refused, Mr. Burns also said that an Alderman of this Council had told him that
this matter would be hushed up like
everything else. Aid. Hoy asked that a
committee of threo be appointed to enquire into the matter and sec if such a

D. S. Curtis A Co., $2.25: B. C. Uazette,

The Police Committee reported that
as the superintendent of the C.P.R. Co.
had been notified of tho verdict of tho
coroner's jury on the death ofW. L,
Cusack, they did not deem it necessary
lo take any further action; also recommending the payment of several small
accounts.   Received and adopted.
The special committee appointed to
examine Messrs. Wolfenden's claim for
damages reported, recommending the
payment of $00 to cover the damages-
Aid. Shiles moved, seconded hy Aid.
Hoy, that this amount be paid and the
proprietors of the building be billed for
this amount, as it was duo to their neglect that .the damage had occurred.
Carried.
The Board of lleaith reported that
they had seen the owner of the stable
regarding Mr. Frascr's complaint. The
owner of tho stable promised to abate
the nuisance. Report referred back to
the committee with power to act.
Aid. Hoy reported verbally for the
Board of Works and mid they wished to
hand over the Pound by-law to the
'olice Committee.
Aid. Johnson said nobody would suffer if the poundkecper exercised more
judgment in his duties. The case of Mr,
Sprott was u most glaring one. The
streets of Westminster were not exactly
a western cattle range, and he did not
believe in the cowboy stylo of a pound-
keeper. The motion to advise Mr. Murray to exercise a little more leniency in
his duties, waB carried.
The Railway Loan Appropriation
Election Regulation By-law was read a
first and second time and committed,
Aid. Johnson in tlie chair. Read a
third time and passed.
The Street Widonlng By-law followed
the same course.
Council adjourned for about 10 minutes.
On resuming, the Real Estate Tax Bylaw was read a second time and committed.
Aid. Smither moved to make the rate of
taxation 17 mills on the dollar,
His worship said this might appear to
be a heavy rate of taxation, but under
the circumstances it was the best that
could be done now. If they were to
have progress, they must have money.
Had the council had a little more time
to await the evolution of events, a lower
rate might have been found sufficient,
but in view of the facts nothing better
could be done at present. Several undesirable legacies had been left over
from last council and with the improvements which were being made, this waB
the most satisfactory arrangement that
could be made to meet tlie requirements.
Several of tho aldermen spoke on the
subject and In favor of tho rate.
Committee rose and reported the bylaw complete with amendments. Report adopted, and by-law read a third
time and passed.
The Street FoleB and Wires By-law
was re-committed, Aid. Shiles in the
chair. Committee rose and reported
the by-law complete with amendments.
By-law read a third time und  passed.
Moved by Aid, Shiles, seconded by
Aid. Sinclair, that F. K, Booth lie appointed city scavenger.   Carried.
The clerk said there had been a request made to him last week for the
seats in the city hall. These seats were
the projiertv of the old dramatic company, but the clerk bad decided to report the matter to the council. A committee wus named to look into the
ownership of the seats, Messrs. McPhaden. Sinclair and Batchelor.
His worship said the last council had
evidently done business on the borrow
all round system, (laughter.) They
borrowed monoy and they gave their
audiences borrowed seats, perhaps they
borrowed the hall   tuft.    (Laughter.)
The clerk—They did borrow the hall
from the Government, your worship.
(Great laughter.
His worship-*! thought bo. The old
dramatic company is wound up and no
doubt these seats'werc very properly included in their assets.
Council adjourned at 10:35 p. in.
Chilcoten   Notea.
The Chilcoten correspondent of the
Sentinel writes as follows: The spring
in this section is backward, At this
date it is almost impossible to plow, although some in favored localities have
commenced. Last night we had a fall
of three inches of snow. Young stock
are expected to suffer. It is also a bad
lookout for full wheat. I have been
lately obliged to return, with a number
of prospectors, from the Tatla Lake
country, on account of the snow, which
is five feet deep in the mountains, and
tho ground being still frozen, which
renders prospecting impossible. Tatla
Lake is situated between Chilcoten Valley und the salt water. A white man,
Mr. B. Franklin, has lately settled there
with his wifo and child. He is 70 miles
from the coast and 60 from his nearest
neighbor in Chilcoten, but he is well repaid for living so far away in the wilds,
as ho has located one of the finest
meadows in the section. He has already
made a wagon road from his house to
Chilcoten, and is now contemplating
another to Bella Coola. Leaving Tatla
Lake we followed the Homattico river
halfway to the const. The scenery
baffles description. Mountains, such as
alone can be seen in British Columbia,
raise their lofty peaks to heaven. Here
is the place to send your dyspeptic citizens. Here is the bracing air that will
restore fresh vigor to their wearied
frames. This iB the Eldorado for your
British sportsman. ThiB ia the place
where he can see and kill his mountain
sheep and bighorns,- with whiqji the
rocky crags and precipices abound. Cariboo are also found iu large droves, and
in certain seasons are not very wild.
A Ruunvrny  Wife.
Among the arrivals front Vancouver
on Thursday evening was Mr. S. H.
May, of that city. Mr. May was in pursuit of Mi's. May, who, as the story goes,
was running away with another man.
It appeared thnt Mrs. Slay und child
were put on board the Islander on Tuesday by her husband, ostensibly for the
purpose of visiting Victoria for a short
time, it being arranged thnt Mr. Slay
should follow in a few days, when they
would return with him to Vancouver.
But Mrs. Stay had uo thought of returning. A lover by the name of James
Holmes was on board, who had planned
an elopement with her, and bo the
happy twain came on to Victoria together. They arrived here late on
Tuesday night, and remained at one of
the loading hotels till Wednesday evening, whon they left for tlio Sound on the
City of Kingston, and that iB tlie last
that has been heard of them.
Mr. Mny next appears on the scene,
Having got wind of the fact that his
wife und Holmes were flying together,
he came over from Vancouvor on Wednesday's boat and left for the Sound on
Thursday morning In hot pursuit.
Whether he has overtaken them or not,
has not been learned, but when he does
It is safe to gamble that there will be
trouble. Mr. Slay had blood in his eye
when he stepped ashore at Victoria and
vowed ho would puncture Holmes with
n bullet when ho got tils eye on him.
The cause of the infidelity which led
to the elopement is not known, but it
would doubtless read liko an old story
if it could bo told. Mr. Slay, unfortunately for himself,, Ib a very homely
man, and Mrs. Slay is a decidedly
beautiful woman—every woman who
jumps the truck is good looking, according to the papers. Sir. Holmes, her
paramour, is a young man who also has
somo pre tensions to good looks. He and
31 rs. May appear to have been better
satisfied with each other than the two
who formed the original partnership,
and so decided to flee together. But
they will repent it.—Times. 2

LESSONS FROM HISTORY.
Untii. 1807 or thereabouts, British
Columbia .the Mainland) and Vancouver Island wore separate colonies; but
in the earlier sixties they had only one
set of officials. Those gentlemen drew
two-thirds of their salaries from the
Mainland, aud one-third from the Is-
lund, but they lived iu Victoria and
spent their money there, attending to
Island Imsiiiess, and giving any time
limy could conveniently spare to Mainland business after tho Island work was
done. This arrangement suited Victoria perfectly, and if tho Mainland
grumbled it was told tbat it was "sectional." It did grumble, however, and
after a timo a separate government for
the Mainland was established at New
Westminster. Left to paddle ita own
canoe, the Island (or rather Victoria,
for the capital is the real sinner) soon
found that although still able to levy
toll on Mainland commerce, it had lost
its grip of the popular money-bag, and
accordingly it began to agitate for union.
Of courBe, it was quite willing that the
capital should remain on the Mainland
—certainly it was—and it continued
quite willing until the union was consummated. Then it began to agitate for
the removal of the capital to Victoria,
and as most of the officials were its
friends, having all tlie interests which
they had acquired in Victoria when living thore to influence them, it won, and
the capital went over the Gulf. Then
the old game began again with renewed
vigor, aud if you want to see where the
revenue of tho Province was spent in
those days just take a drive around the
capital, and compare its roads with
those of other old settled places.
During these years a very determined
effort was mado to .find a road to Cariboo via Bute Inlet, a movement which
was intended, of course, to cut out the
Lower Mainland, and deprivo it of any
advantage it might gain from the passing through of business for the mines,
jUBt as, iu later years, the "through to
" Yule" boats were put on in the hope
of checking the progress of New Westminster.
When Confederation took place Mr.
(now Sir Joseph) Trutch, who was then
tlie best authority in tlie country, said
that tho Canadian Pacific Railway must
And its way to the sen through the Fraser Valley, .and accordingly the surveyors
were directed to ibid the best route.
But Victoria took alarm. Well it knew
that under the stimulus of railway construction, the Lower Mainland would
speedily run away from it in wealth and
population, and it brought all its influence to bear in order to avert what it
regarded as a calamity. No stone was
left unturned to secure the selection of
the Bute Inlet route for the railway,
and had that effort succeeded, this District would have been to-day what it was
ten years ago. New Westminster would
still have been a village, and instead of
Vancouver we should have hnd old
Granville. More than that, Victoria
herself would not have tieen a whit
more prosperous than she is,
for she would have killed the
goose that has laid most of
her golden eggs. Nearly eyery one
knows that, by these tactics, Victoria
stopped all growth and development in
the Province for five long yoavs. No
man dared to invest anywhere or to embark in any enterprise of moment, as no
man could tell where the railway would
run, aud thus, ub the direct result of
Victoria sectionalism the Province was
stagnant for five years, and is to-day
Ave years behind what it should be.
These ate a few of the more glaring
instances. Ask the pioneers how this
sectionalism manifested itself in minor
matters, aud they will tell you of a systematic policy of robbery and obstruction—the one end always kopt in view
being the keeping down of this part of
the country lest it should attain that
place of influence and power which
nature had fitted it to occupy. As it
haB been, so it is, and so it will be. Did
, not tho Premier himself acknowledge
to the Mainland Delegation that there
was great jealousy of the growing power
of tho Lower Mainland? Aud docs not
the precious Redistribution Bill prove it
without any further words? Wu shall
have justice when we win it, but not
one moment sooner.
"the handB of the Government." More
fools they, the electors of Yale, if they
are deluding themselves with any such
false hopes; but we are persuaded that the Sentinel does not
speak for the "electors of Yale." Temporising promises, with a "big if" attached, from a Government that has
shown itself to be, in the matter of redistribution, completely at the mercy of
an insatiable and unscrupulous power
behind the throne, and that lias, in
spite of the most earnest protests, for a
time, and the most emphatically expressed convictions of the leader of that
Government, been coerced into father'
ing Buch a measure—even as a "tempor-
" ary and a compromise measure"—as
the Redistribution Bill lately passed, do
not give any more assurance for future
fair doaling, to those who appreciate
tho true inwardness of the whole matter,
than would u bankrupt's promise be
considered good if he rashly covenanted,
even with tho best of intentions, to convey to hiB creditors the deed of an estate upon which he had not the slightest hold. This may seem n harsh way
of putting it, but there is too much
evidence to bIiow that the metaphor
docs not one whit exaggerate the facts;
and if the electors of the Lower Mainland
and of the Interior are lulled into a reposeful anticipation at this time, and
allow this most important and momentous crisis to pass without taking
firm, independent, and self-reliant action, which shall raise them in the councils of the Province from mere despised,
over-ridden suppliants to self-respecting
uncompromising, and potent aiBerters
of their rights, they will have a terrible
awakening when it will be practically
too late, and those who have watched
and warned may fittingly say: "SI
" on now and take your rest." We
would issue the true warning note
that the electors of the Mainland,
of the whole Province, but
particularly of this Lower Main*
land, have more reason to be thoroughly
wide-awake just now, in the matter both
of the Provincial general elections, and
the Dominion bye-election, pending,
than they ever have had in the history
oftheProvincebefore. "Redistribution/
important an issue sb it iB, despite the
stupid slur of the Sentinel, contained in
the words, "nothing more vital than the
"principle of representation at stake,1
bids fair to be overshadowed by the
giant octopus of "distributionl" whoso
huge outlines are plainly discernible
among the shadows, but of which more
anon. We repeat, let the electors be
more wide-awake than ever they have
been in the past, and let them refrain
from hastily and foolishly pledging
themselves to any man, but reserve
their decision to the polls. The second
part of the Sentinel's answer we shall
consider by itself.
THE SENTINEL'S ANSWER.
A voicu from the watch-tower—tho
Sentinel has wrestled with those hard
questions, and iu Its issue of Saturday
last we have its "honest and carefully
"thought out answer," Our cotemporary prefaces its sorioUB work by a breath-
catching spell in which it makes a few
general explanations. In the first place,
it wishes it to be understood that its
first article on the redistribution question was "written after mature deliberation." Sorry to hear it, friend Sentinel. In the second place, our cotemporary "aBserts most emphatically that redistribution as a vital issue has 'come
" 'home.'" Glad to hear it, frfond.&n-
tinel, and still more glad that you have
been brought to so "emphatically'* acknowledge the fact. The Sentinel continues: "The District of Yale iu nil
"fairness is entitled to another representative.... but the fact that tho in-
"terests of the District nro woll looked
"after by the present quota of representatives, and the furthor fact announced
"and reiterated timo and again by the
"Government that the redistribution
"measure will be amended in tho near
"future iu a manner to meet the just
"demands of overy district, has led the
"olectora of Yale district to accept with
"good grace the measure as introduced,
"and to bide the timo when they will
"receive full justice in this matter at
The Car Load Clause.
There has been some agitation among
Eastern wholesale bouses in order to
obtain the insertion of the mixed car
clause in the Railway bill now before
the Dominion parliament; but tbe
Board of Trade of Winnipeg and others,
including that of British Columbia, opposed the departure. Yesterday, u telegram was received from Ottawa by Mr.
Robert Ward, stating that the Government would make no change in the act,
which, had it been amended in the sense
proposed, the result would have been
most injurious to the wholesale houses
here, as the insertion of the clause
would havo given shippers of assorted
loads the same advantage as those who
send by the carload. It would indeed,
have encouraged Eastern "drummers"
to work up orders in small lines to be
sent along in the carload and be distributed at the point of destination, to the
great disadvantage of distributors in

A NIGHT OF DANGER.
Thrilling Adventuro of a Traveler
in a Southern Forest.
There was no longer any reasonable
ilu:bt but that I was lost.
All that day I biul boen tramping
through a wild and almost unbrokon
forest, in one of our Southwestern
States.
Since morning, I bad not seen moro
than a half-dozen human habitations,
and they wore of tho poorest nnd rudest
..osurlption, hardly lit for tho abode of
;i wild animal.
* Since the mttliUo of the afternoon, tho
forest bad been unbroken on oithersido,
no thickly matted with trees and vinos
that tho oyo could not penotrato a dozen
feet into tbo gloomy shadows.
All there was to show tbat a human
being had ever beon that way boforo
was tho apology for a road that I -was
pursuing. If thero had ever been any
travel upon it, thero was little sign now
.hub such had been tho caso. Bushes
had grown up whero tho ruts might havo
boon, and in many places tho stout vines
had cropt around, so that ono had to
keep a constant lookout to prevent himself from being tripped up by them.
Xow and then, in the thickest portion
of tbo forest, it was almost impossible
to keep what, in faot, was hardly moro
than a trail. Hero it would seem to
brunch either to tho right or loft, but
up to nightfall I flattered mysolf that I
hud not gone astray. Hut now I had
grave reason to ho worried.
At tbe cabin whero I had passed tho
previous night, I had beon told that I
.should come to another by tho middle
of tho afternoon, or a Httlo later, providing I made good timo. But now
night was close upon mo. and tho habitation I had boon looking for at evory
turn had failed to materialize.
Tho prospect of a night alone in the
dismal forest was not ploasant to contemplate. I know that, in tbo dismal
depths about me, outlaws, moonshiners
and cut-throats had thoir refuge, nnd I
did not rolish the idea of mooting them
at any time, much less of encountering
them in the darkness.
It had begun to grow dark about me,
whon I camo to a point in the way
whioh puzzled me. Tho road forked
again, and for the life of mc I could not
determine, which tolako, the right or
l.ft.
As many hud dono beforo mo, I let
ehanco decide tlio matter. Setting a
stick upright, 1 removed 'my hand, and
let it fall In the direction it would. It
tell to tho loft, and so I took that way.
1 hurried onward now as fast ns I
could. I wanted to make use of what
daylight still remained, and get to tho
cabin whoro I wns to pass the night before It becamo so dark that traveling
would be impossible But my haste
amounted to nothing. A darkness
whioh could almost bo felt closed in
about me, and I felt a certainty tbat I
must bo lost. The cabin I expected to
find bad not appeared, and of its exist-
enoo I had no reason to doubt. Tho
pooplo whoro I had passed the previous
night could havo had no motive in deceiving mo.'
Stumbling along in the darkness,
trying to make up my mind to faeo the
inevitable, that of passing tho night
out of doors, I suddenly tripped ovor
something which lay across the path,
nnd wont hoadlong over lt to tho ground.
Mingled with tho shock of striking tho
earth was a thrill of tear, coupled with
astonishment. I did not got upon my
feet at onoe, but sitting up, I reached
out toward tho obstruction over which I
had tripped. A thrill of horror ran
through my frame aB my hand touched
it.   It was tho body of a man.
I sprang to my feet, while I could feel
tho hair rising upon my head. Had tho
body boon stiff and cold, my fright would
not have beon so bad. By chance I hud
plaoed my hand upon its faoe, and I felt
thore was tho warmth of lifo still in it.
This was not all. It was wot, and tho
moisture stuck to my bands. Although
I could notsoe, I folt sure that it was
blood that wob sticking to them. An accident had occurred, or a murder had
beon committed, within a few mlnuteB
of my coming.
With trembling hands I sought for a
match, and whon 1 found one, I struck
lt and glanced down at the ohjeot beforo
mo. It was the body of a man, Its face
so covered with blood that its features
wore not discernible. The match went
out and I was alono again in tho darkness, with tho body of tho murdered man
lying at my feot
i lighted two or three matohesatonoe,
hut their light only rovoaled to me
what I had already seen. What could I
do? Tho thought of remaining by tho
side of the dead man until morning 1
could not entertain for a moment. I
must go on untii u considerable dlstanco,
at least, was placed between It and me.
This I lost no timo tn doing. As fast as
my feot would carry me, I hurried on,
half unmindful If I was keeping tho
trail or not. ,
For something liko half an hour 1
pushed onward, and then camo suddenly
to a sli'.ndiitlll.
On beforo mo n light was glimmering
through tho trees; hut I was uncertain
whether it camo from a flro or u wlll-o'-
tho-wisp flitting through the tangled
maze.) uf the forest.   But I would not ho
long kept in suspense   Any company
wus better than tho dead man lying in
' the road behind mo.   Aa I came near,
. tho outlines of a cabin disclosed Itself,
j nnd out through tho single window the
light was gleaming.
I thanked my stars for this; without
doubt it was tho cabin to which I hud
been directed that morning; und 1 had
stumbled as lt wero upon It hy accident.
Tho thought of finding those who bad a
band in tbo death of tho man I had loft
in tho road did not occur to mo, and
walking up to the door, I gavo a loud
rap thereon. Home ono commenced to
movo about. The light was takon from
tho window, and, a littlo Inter, the door
wns thrown open, nnd a woman stood be-
fore mo. Sho wns not very prepossessing, and thore was n soared look upon
her face, ns sho said'
"Who are you, and wmjt do you want
hero?1*
"1 am a stranger traveling through the
country on business. This morning I
WHS told I should Hnd a cabin here
abouts, where I could get entertainment
for the night"
"You had better go away. This is no
placo for an honest man. They maybe
hack aoon, and your life will he in danger."
She would have closed the door, but I
raised my hand to prevent it. At that
moment sho uttered a ory of terror.
"What is it?" I said.
"Murderer! Look at your hands,"
she cried.
I held them up. They wero covered
with blood whioh I had got upon them
while feeling in tho dark to And what it
was that lay across tho road. The blood
of the murdered man.
Tho noxt moment she had slammed
the door in my face, and then I heard
her seoure it with heavy bars.
A man could hardly find himself in a
moro forlorn condition than that I was
now in. No rond which a man could
follow before him; a dead man lying in
the forest behind, and a band of cutthroats llablo at any moment to put In
their appearance at the cabin.
Tho sound of running water put mo
in mind that there was a chance for me
to wash the blood from my bands.
Guided by tho sound, I passed around
the cabin to the spot whero, doubtless,
its Inmates got their water. Horo I
proceeded to givo them a good washing,
although in tho darkness I could not
tell whether 1 had removed all the
stains. 1 wus about to movo away from
tho spot, whon I was startled by tho
sound of voices hardly a dozen yards
away. Listening, I caught tho words uttered us they drow nearer:
"Let him Ho thore and rot An above-
ground gravo is good enough for a dug
of a spy."
Doubtless ho was speaking of the
man over whoso body 1 had stumbled.
"But somo one may And it, find so get
into trouble," said another.
"There is little chance of tbat No
one hardly ever comes this wnynow."
"You Forget, that there is a stranger
somewhere near hero now. We havo
got to soo that he don't get out of hero
olive."
.  My blood ran cold. Of courso he could
mean no one except myself.
"Yen. lie lias seen too much already.
If be came along the road lie must havo
run across tho dead man. Who knows
but what ho may he in the cabin now?
He would want a shelter for the night,
and tlio light in tho window ml^ht bring
him horo."
They bad reached the doorway now,
and one uf them demanded admittance.
The dour opened, and thoy went in,
closing it behind them. Now wus tlio
time for mo to mako my escape. A
minute later they might learn of the
woman that f must bo somowhoro near
at hand. Almost holding my breath,
nnd moving so thut not a dry leaf rustled
beneath my foet, 1 crept away into tho
darkness, going I knew not whithor.
To my dying dny I shall not forgot
that, night in the forest Morning
found me moro dead than alive: but to
my great joy it wns on the edgoof a considerable town.
I;it once sought out tbe authorities,
and told thorn the story of iny night's
adventure. They knew of thu whereabouts of the cabin, and had long suspected it to l)a tho home uf a gang of
robbers and moonshiners. When they
got thero, they found It empty. Taking
alarm at my escape, fearing that I had
learned too much, they had fled to new
quarters for safety.
The body of the murdered ■ man was
brought in and burled. Who ho was
was never known to u certainty, but it
was suspected that bo was souk* one who
was trying to earn tho reward offered
for a clow to tho gang of moonshiners
by whom ho had lost his life.
N A few yoars afterwards, I heard that
they had boon caught and bad paid tho
penalty of their crimes at the halter's
end.
Kvery now and then thut night of
danger comes vividly to my mind, and I
reverently thank Providence, who carried mo safely through.—Arthur L.

A lively runaway occurred on Douglas
street this morning. Mr. Neil McColI's
delivery horse took fright and headed
for Columbia street whore it arrived
safety after clearing a deep excavation
in its way. After turning tbo corner
tho vchiclo came into collision with a
verandah post, and the animal broke
the harness and got clear, lt was captured a fow minutes later, not much tho
worse of Its exciting experience.
Probably one of the most mercenary
acts committed for some time, occurred
in connection with the stranding of the
British barque Laudles the other day.
While lying helpless on the rocks, an
American lug como out and offered lo
pull her off. Before hor master would
cnst a Hue, however, hi; stipulated thut
the captain of the barque should give a
bonus of $5,000. This tho captain declined, and ho was left alone. Tho
Laudles afterwards lloated oil' without
any damage.

street. At McKenzie street it man

down and the wagon wheels passed
over him. A few severe cuts and bruises
were all the damage done. The runaway

were brought to a halt on Mathers ft

Nadaliiio'H Invitation.
The good people of Nanaimo, ever hospitable and ever friendly to the Koyal
City, have extended an invitation to the
Mayor and Council and the citizens generally to be present at the celebration of
Her Majesty's birthday at the Bluck
Diamond city on the 24th inst. The invitation will bo accepted, und ifu special
excursion steamer is run on that day it
is rjuite likely a large number of our
citizens will take a trip over to Nanaimo
and join in tbe celebration of tbe event.
It is reported Victoria will also celebrate
the 24th, but as no official notice of this
intention lias been received it it just
possible the rumor may bo foil dilution-
lesfl. ^
A Fair Requeat.
Tbe workmen employed by the City on
street repairs and other works, petitioned the Council last night for a partial
holiday on. Saturday afternoons. The
petition docs not ask much—just a few
hours—and it is couched in  language
which always commands respect and at'
tention. Tlie matter was referred by
the Council to the Board of Works with
power to act, and it is the unanimous
wish of tho public tbat tbe board should
net liberally with the workmen. In the
long run the City will bo the gainer by
treating its employees liberally, ns there
will be good inducements for really first
class workmen to remain permanently
in the service.

That Remind! Vu,
"We would counsel the populace to
becalm," says our morning cotemporary.
From the serene height of his gross
ignorance of Provincial affairs, he counsels you, O, populace! to "be calm."
Wo beard a story of a calm man once
unon a time. He had had a difficulty
with a neighbor, nnd be said (he said it
calmly) "Sir, you have insulted my
wife, you have injured my family, you
have spat in ipy face, you havo kicked
me down stairs. But beware, sir, beware lest you rouse the sleeping lion in
my bosom, or you—you may get hurt!"
Our cotem. does not attempt to deny
that the people of the united constituencies have been outraged and trodden
upon, but he counsels them to be calm,
like the man in tbe story. Perhaps
they will take his advice, but our own
opinion is that they are a very long
way from being either cowards or fools,
 »—•—«	
Hard Practice.
Tho lacrosse practice lost night was
thoroughly good in every respect. Every
member of the first team wns present,
and each man played with the same
determination that could bo expected
in a championship match. The field
captain, Mr. Gow, was on hand and
played his forces with good tact, keeping the men close to their covering, nnd
insisting ou strict observance to team
play. The home men, Messrs. Cambridge, McGregor, Ityall and LewiB are
all in good form, and play together in
line style, their attacks on the Hags
being frequent nud powerful. Until It
comes to a match, nnd not till then,
will the whole strength and plaving
power of this combination bo fully
shown. The defence men, Messrs.
Stcunrt, Campbell and Ketchum, plav a
beautiful game, and it will be a stronger
homo than the Province can bring into
the Held to-day that will put them to
rout. In centre field Climie does line
work, and several other players are fnst
coming into prominence. McKenzie,
iu goal, played last night for the first
time, and it was easy to see that his
play was far from amateur. Ho is a
decided acquisition to the team.
Since the previous practice tho park
committee has had the roller at work and
the ground was in much better condition for play, but further attention on
the part of the committee is required.
The surface is covered with small pebbles which refuse to be ground into the
earth, nnd these are at once a danger
and inconvenience to the players, This
nuisance can easily be remedied by
swooping, and the expense would be
sinall. It is to be hoped the park committee will show the same inclination
to mako ns perfect a job of tbe play
ground as it has in connection with the
other park improvements.

Wanted, 11  Fair Chance.
There is a fine cup offered by the Victoria people for the best amateur oarsman of the Province. This sounds very
splendid and magnanimous, to be sure,
until one comes to consider the conditions, and then it does not sound anything more than the old, old trick that
hns given Victoria a name that no ono
wants to take away from her. Tliis cup
must be won three times in succession
by whoever wants to have it, and will
remain in Victoria until won finally.
Now, what athlete is going to go into
training for month or two, traveUo Victoria year aftor yoar, supposing he wins
it the first year, for three years—he has
to, be it remembered, if he would secure
the trophy nt last—and take his chances
against all the oarsmen of tho Province,
and probnbly fall in tho third contest?
It is time this kind of sporting was stopped iu this Province. If some of those
cup-givers would just go to the trouble
of training hard for two or perhaps threo
months, denying themselves nil the luxuries of life and working " liko a nigger"
every day in the shell nnd finally undergoing the uusponkablo mental torments
immediately preceding the contest, they
might he willing to ncknowjedge that
the man who fairly wins the cup once
has done nobly and woll. Such
miserable exhibitions of miserly
saving aro disgraceful and do
not encourage sport nt all, Many a
much finer cup than the one offered in
Victoria is given nway for one contest in
the east, England, and Australia. There
an oarsman would treat with n smile of
contempt n proposal to race threo times
for a cup he had fairly won in the first
contest. Besides, Westminster and
Vancouver, one might sny Mainland
amateurs always havo. remarkably bad
luck iu Victoria, 110 matter whether
they win the prize or not. There seems
to no a strong, magnetic attraction in
tho Queen Citv thnt renders it impossible for outside athletes to bear away
the trophies. And. tho judges always
seem to las be strongly affected with
some kind of opthalml trouble in those
contests, one of the phenomena of
which is that thoy cannot possibly
recognlso the rights of any but their
own men. If fairness wero one of the
attributes of amateur athletic contests
at tho capital plenty of Mainland amateurs would go thero to contest. But
whore the caso is so lioplcss they prefer
to stay at home.
PERSONAL.
Mr. It. B. Bell hns gone to Victoria
for n day or two.
Mr, Watson nnd Ids bride are back
again from Kamloops.
Mr, G. E. Corbould hns returned from
a trip through tho district,
Some  l.Hndxoina  Graft  Ueing   Itnllt at
I-feFl.ee Bros.' Shipyard.
A Columbian reporter, on receipt of a
quiet hint that there was something
"'way up" in the way of boat building
to be seen down at McPhee Bros.' shipyard on the North Arm, took a walk
down to thnt place of business to-day.
A great change has takeu place in this
establishment since last the reporter
visited it. There are now various kinds
of saws in full operation, piles of lumber,
parts of machinery nnd marine boilers,
and a crowd of boats of all sorts and
sizes up for repairs in the yard. A large
staff of workmen, busily engaged at tbe
different branches of the trade, gave a
look of bustle and animation to the
scene. The reporter was taken iu baud
by one of the members of tbe firm and
shown around the building shop and
premises. The particular boat he had
come to Bee was found to be a small
steam launch, the hull of which is
nearly completed. The firm have evidently tried to do their level best in
producing this vessel, and they have
6 reduced a mnster piece of boatbuilding,
bthiug moro exquisitely symmetrical
than the lines of her hull could be imagined. The mould of counter and forefoot nre
perfection, melting nway into the bulk
of the midships without a fault. The
stern is a wonderfully beautiful piece of
elliptical building, and gives to the little
craft a thoroughly well-finished look.
When completely finished aud fitted
with engines, smoke stack, brass fittings,
varnish and paint, there will not bo a
daintier bit of ship-carpcntcr work afloat
on the Pacific. Her boiler is of steel,
and wus built at Victoria, and will supply
about H\,< horse power, although capable
of much more pressure than that, Tbe
gentleman for whom the boat is being
built has expressed himself as thoroughly satisfied with-tho work; and well he
may, for this boat is by long odds tbe
handsomest ever built in this Province,
nnd will be worthy of u prince when
launched. She equals, if not surpasses,
the finest steam launches turned out ou
the Clyde. Her dimensions are 25 feet
over all, 5 feet beam, and 2 feet fi inches
deep.
McPhee Bros, have also on tho stocks
a fifteen ton sloop, and to judge from
the small model of this boat shown the
reporter, she will be a regular "Puritan
of speed.
Tbe tug for Mr. W. II. Vianen will bo
commenced in a fow days, and will also
be n credit to tbe Frnser.

Editor Columhian—StV—It is rumor
cd that four or live would-be dictators
or politicians, of New Westminster City
and District, who, when they go to Victoria are generally to be found ut tho
Driard, with a pitcher of "sour" before
them, assuming to be the whole City
and district of New Westminster, und to
settle its affairs, have taken upon themselves, unasked, tbe offering of- the suffrages of this City to the lion. John
Robson. By what right, the electors
would like to know, do those individuals,
who do not count for any more than
they nro worth numerically, assumo to
make barter of the sacred franchise of
thirteen or fourteen hundred free and
independent voters? Those who shall
say who is to represent us uro a majority of tho voters, nnd not the renowned
five with the classic pitcher of "sour".

with tho public of that City, but simply
asserts that the road and lorry will be

bonus for ferry connection with n foreign

VOLUME VIII.
NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, MAY 13, 1890.
NUMBER 86.
TO THE ELECTORS
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN.—In view of the near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy cauaed by tho death of our late
representative (the much-respected D.
Chieholni) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay beforo you
some of my views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in tho
near future for consideration.
I havo been asked what I mean when
I announce myself as a Liberal-Conservative; I reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residonco of over 30 years iu this Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has had the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
me liberal ideas, therefore I claim! am
a Libera.-Conservativo." Owing to tho
fact that party linos are not defined in
British Columbia as they aro in the older
provinces, 1 consider that our representatives are not in duty bound to give a
through-ihkk-and-thin support to any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
good measures which may bo brought
before them, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, and
should a measure como before them
which.they consider in any way detrimental to tho interests of this Province
they should take their stand like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain oxtent, to
the Tarill', or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, ami many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we cannot produce at homo can
bo obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors ovov the
line, and iu many eases the articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Waro and other articles are "brought from tho States, although the duties are so heavy. Again'
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
aro obliged to cross the border for it,
and are met with sueh heavy duties
that heads of families in this Province
pay more than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
We have had example to the point during the last three months. If we bad
not received a good supply from California there would have been u meat
famine; as it is we are now and have
been paying 25 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the same stale of
affairs is likely lo obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spile of
"Protection" for the last eleven years
our stock raisers arc little better prepared to meet bard winters than they
were before, and to my mind the only
■ ones who have reaped the benefit of tlie
. N. P, are tbe manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade," hut as that seems out of the
question,! would advocate "Reciprocity"
in many articles which are at present in the Tariff lists, as I tliink
it would bo beneficial to both
countries, and tbe working man would
not have to go down so deep into his
pockets to buy what he needs to eat and
wear. I am aware 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 classes who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of the lute Mr. Chisholm, he was unable
to bo in his place this session, and vory
little during the previous one, so we of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before the notice of
tlie House. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
heen in his seat, 1 do not think the Post-
in aster-1 Jen era 1 would have been left so
much in the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities on tho
Low* Eraser as he seems to have been
when he proposed to cut oil' the mail
subsidy from that important route, and
there are othor places in the District
which need butter postal facilities, which
I consider should receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope that in the near future our
District will roach that point that we
may look for it to ho divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 15U0
miles of territory, and when the census
returns are in I think the necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation.
The protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also tho works for improving
the channel at the Sandheads, in view
of the expected increase in our shipping
interests.
I consider the Provinco should havo
control over all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
gre.it impoi'tance to this District in particular, I feel should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from tho mouth
of the Serpentine to Fraser River, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from the Fraser River to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to mo.
Immigration, I consider, should ho
fostered, and encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coming here fast
enough; 1 would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, as many would
he disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our gloriouB Province
a bad name.
Thero aro many other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would mako
this address too long. I hope to see ns
many as possible before the election,
when I shall bo prepared to lay my views
moro fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvasB and will send duo notice of time and place of meetings.
During my long residence iii the Provinco 1 have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and havo
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I havo the honor to be elected
1 assure you I shall watch over tho interests of this District faithfully and to
tho best of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go ns'a true British Columbian nnd to do my duty as such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.
