Annual Report or the C, 1*. It.
Montreal, May 14,—At the annual
meeting of the Canadian Pacific Kail-
way -Company, to-day, 848,848 shares
were represented. Tho old hoard of directors was re-elected with the exception of R, V, Martin in whose place Genoral Samuel Thomas, of New York, was
elected. The report for the last year
was highly satisfactory, showing gross
earnings, $15,030,600; working expenses,
♦11,024,601; net earnings, *6,<KKi,05J>;
fixed charges, $3,770,132; surplus $2,-
226,0%; surplus for the year, after payment of supplementary dividends, $1,-
670,026; surplus from the previous year
$326,428, making total surplis carried forward, $1,003,350. The increase in gross
earnings over previous year, $1,835,115;
decrease in working expenses, $306,150,
increase in profits, $2,235,285. The roport attributes the decrease in working
expenses to the largo expenditures made
for improvements during the past few
yearsj and indicated the intention of
the directors to continue improvements
with a view to tlie further cheapening of
the cost of operation and expresses; the
belief is that the proportion of working
expenses to gross earnings will soon be
brought below fifty-five per cent,
tho directors, in their report, express
their intention to continue dividends at
tlie rate of five per cent., and their belief
that there will be no difficulty in maintaining this rate. The bad harvest in
the Northwest materially affected traffic
for the last half of the year, and earnings had to be made good from traffic of
a leaner description than is usually
sought by the company. The entire
property of the company has been well
maintained and the railway has enjoyed
remarkable immunity from serious accidents and is the only one of the transcontinental lines that lias been entirely
free from snow blockades iu the mountains.
The land sales for tbe vear were 105,-
160 acres for $731,104, against 162,310
acres for $558,010 in 1888. The report
expresses the belief that there is no
ground for anticipating hostile legislation at Washington, and that a body
like the Congress of the United States
is not likely to bo moved to such a
course by false or exaggerated statements concerning the actions or policy
of tbe company, emanating from persons
whose object is to chock legitimate competition. Tlie report refers to the fact
that it will be ten years on the 21st of
October next since the contract for the
con struct ion of the Canadian Pacific
Railway was signed; aud goes on to say
that neither the Government nor any
one of those who signed the contract on
behalf of the company had at that time,
the remotest Idea that through trains
would be regularly running between
Montreal and the Pacific Coast by the
month of June, 1886, 5 years before the
date stipulated m the contract, and up to
a much later time, very few of even the
best-informed and most steadfast friends
of the enterprise believed that the year
1880 would see the company with over
5,000 miles of railway, earning, under
anything hut favorable circumstances,
more than fifteen million dollars, with
profits exceeding $6,000,000. Having, at
the same time, the highest possible
reputation, based on the prompt discharge of all its obligations from the
beginning, and having attained a financial standing hardly second to that of
any railway company on this continent,
and occupying the unique position of
having made a reasonable return to its
shareholders from the outset, and in
having repaid with interest, aud long
before it became due, every dollar borrowed from tho Government. The
shareholders authorized the directors
to proceed gradually and, as circumstances might require, with the construction on acquisition of several short
local lines. The meeting was unanimous throughout.
At a subsequent meeting of the board
AV. C. A'an Home was re-elected president, and Sir George Stephen, Sir
Donald A. Smith aud Richard B. Angus
\Vere re-elected as members of the executive committee.

Colonial Block, New Westminster, B. C. dapistc
EniTou Columbian-. -—Sir: — I was
amused and yet surprised at the cool audacity of Mr. John Hendry in offering
this free constituency of AA'estminster to
the Hon. John Robson, und by acclamation at that. Does Mr. Hendry hold
this constituency in his hand, and can
he give it to anyone whom lie may
fuvor? If I am any judge of the people
of Westminster, they will not bo at all
flattered by the dictatorship assumed by
Mr. Hendry. Hub Mr. Hendry asked
the people of Westminster if they would
accept Hon. Mr. Robson ? If so,* I have
never heard of it. And I don't think
that Mr. Hendry would be accepted as a
leader, anyway," in political matters. By
what right does ho assume to dispone of
our suffrages? Surely the peoplo of
WeBtminster would be a set ot dolts to
be led in this way?
Mr. Robson declined to be elected in
the city—even by acclamation—and this
to my mind exposes the little game so
clumsily played. The Hon. John now
gocB to Victoria and informs the people
there that Westminster wanted to elect
him bv acclamation; the news will be
spread all over the District, and the upper country will also be told tho great
tidings that Westminster has returned
to tlie Premier's fold, and submitted
once more to the superior intelligence
of the Island politicians.
But the scheme will fail. Hon. Mr.
Robson could not possibly be elected for
the city of Westminster, and Mr. Hendry knew that full well when he sent
tho invitation. AVestminster is not the
pocket borough of Mr. Hendry or of any
other man. Our voters aro free and independent, aud it is the voice of the people that will elect their candidate, not a
one-man dictatorship, or any knot of
schemers or political parasites for selfish purposes. Yours truly,

Children Cry for Pitcher's Cistorhu
Effect of Stanley's Speech.
.oxnox, May 14.—The meekness with
which the I.ondou press receives the
drubbing administered to it by Sir.
Stanley in his speech in the Guild Hail
yesterday, causes a great deal of comment and strengthens the general belief
that his remarks were none too severe.
The Times ia especially mild iu its references to the speech aud thinks that the
explorer's warning's ought to be heeded
by the Government, England, the
paper Bays, has the strongest claim of
any European power to any advantage
that may be secured in Africa, owing to
the fact that everything that has been
done in the interest of civilization in
that country is due to England's efforts.
This is precisely the kind of language,
the absence of which from the columns
of the leading newspapers, Mr. Stanley
complained of, and it is, consequently,
evident that his speech has had a good
effect.
The Local Taxation Bill.
T-onuon, Mny 14.—The vote on the
second reading of the Local Taxation
Bill, Involving the question of compensation to the keepers ol public houses
forced out of business by a reduction of
the number of licenses, which it is expected will be reached to-morrow evening, is, in Us turn, a matter of paramount political interest. Speculation
upon the strength of the support which
the Government will be able to hold to
the measure, is engaging the attention
of men of all parties, and the general
opinion is that the bill will pass its
present stage by au uvorugo Government majority. The whips have been
active to-day, and the attendance of
members to-morrow evening is suro to
be large, A few liberals will vote with
the conservative majority on the question, aud some tories will vote with the
Opposition. It is not believed that Mr.
Crane's following of the unionist into
tho temperance ranks will amount to
much, and owing to the attitude of the
liberal party iu regard to the liquor
party in tne post, the GladstoniaiiB
cannot afford to commit their party to
stultify its position by voting in a body
against the measure. The Parnellitcs
will vote with the Opposition as a matter of consistency, the bill being a Government measure.
Imperial   Parliament,
London, May .14.—In the House of
Commons to-day Mr. James F. Fox
(Nationalist), moved tbe second reading
of the Irish Agricultural Labor Bill proposing the use of the church surplus to
erect cottages for laborers,
Mr. William Johnston, the Conservative member for South Belfast, moved
the rejection of the bill. Tho church
surplus, he said, was not sufficient to
cover the charges of the Land Bill and
the laborers Bill.
Mr, D. R. Plunkott, tho Conservative
member for Dublin University, said that
the Parnellitcs had assembled in the
House in full force at the timo when
most of the other members wero absent,
in order to get this bill read, and destroy tho laborers' clauses in the 1 .and
Purchase Bill.
Mr. AV. Russell, the Unionist member,
for South Tyrone, moved to adjourn,
Not a single clause of tho bill, he said
had been explained.
Mr. Balfour commented on tho silence
of tho Irish leaders, ond supported Mr
Russell's motion to adjourn.
A vote was taken on the motion to
adjourn and it was lost by 00 to OS.
Mr. Parnell moved that the question
of the second reading of the bill lie now
put.
Tho Speaker declined to put the question, it being obvious that the House
desired to continue the debate,
Mr. Balfour said that the ParncHites
merely desired to embarrass tbe Government, und to injure the Lund Purchase
Bill. The conditions under which tbe
bill was belnit debated would deprive
the voto for its second reading of all
sittniflcance.
Tho second reading was then agreed
to without a division, amid prolonged
Irish cheers.
SOUTHERN RAILWAY.
Important Interview with Air. J. J. Donovan, Chief Engineer.
The Sedro Press, of a recent date, has
the following important railway information: Chief Engineer J, J. Donovan,
of the Fairhaven A Southern Railroad,
was in Sedro, Friday, remembering the
employes of the company, at this end of
the lino with their monthly salaries.
The Press sought an interview with Mr.
Donovan in the hope of learning something of interest to ita readers, and in
this it was by no means disappointed.
Mr. Donovan said it had been a matter
of deep regret to the company that they
had been tillable to keep pace with the
demands of Sedro for building material,
and that prompt steps had been to so
equip the road as to meet all demands.
At that time, he said, three freight cars
were ou scows euroute from Tacoma to
Fairhaven, and seventeen others were
at Tacoma awaiting sound transportation to Fairhaven, making in all twenty
additional cars, which it is intended
shall run between Fairhaven and Sedro
as soon as thoy reach their destination.
This will double the freight capacity of
this line, and the service will Ire increased ns occasion demands.
Mr. Donovan regretted that the
coaches ordered had not yet been heard
from, but stated some time had elapsed
since the order had been placed, and the
company was awaiting tidings from them
with considerable impatience. He said
it was tho purpose to add a fully equipped daily passenger and mail train to the
service between Fairhaven and Sedro at
the earliest possible day. Ho said the
work of construction of the line connecting us with the Canadian Pacific was
being vigorously pushed, both ways,
from Fairhaven north and from New
Westminster south, aud expressed confidence that by the middle of August
Sedro would be in the enjoyment of a
through train service connecting it
with the great transcontinental system
of the Canadian Pacific.
Mr. Donovan assures us that the bridging of the river at Sedro. building south
of Northern Pacific and Union Pacific
connections, and east from Sedro through
the mountains to Spokane Falls shall all
have early attention. Intact, it is the
intention of the company to not only
keep apace with the country through
which its prospective Hues extend, but
to take tho initiative in its development.
Sedro is recognized by tho company 'as
the central and distributing point of its
great system. That Sedro'g interests
will be carefully guarded, then, follows
as a matter of course.
In conjunction with the above the
following interview, from tlie Fairhaven
Herald, will not be out of place:
"Anything doing to-day?" asked a
Herald reporter, aa lie stepped into Chief
Engineer Donovan's office yesterday
afternoon.
Well, yos," answered the official,
pushing back a pile of estimates, maps
and profiles' that he had been examining,
" We are very busy but what can I do
for you?"
111 want to know something about
your traffic; the public are anxious to
know what is glowing up (dung the line
of road where, I believe, you have stated there was not even a horse trail a
year ago."
" AVe are hardly ready to talk traffic
yet, though we have been preparing for
it steadilv."
" In wlnit way? I hear much complaint from loggers and mill men for
tuck of cars. Are you able to supply the
demand?"
"No; but we hope soon to remedy
this matter. No one can be more anxious to have traffic handled than the
officers of tho company, and they could
not forsce that run. ordered three
months ago would be so long in coming,
Wc have sont twenty messages hurrying
the rolling stock if wo have one, and expect the cars will soon be here,"
"What cars are ordered?"
"Two passenger coaches, two combination coaches, six box cars, three
cubooscB, one hundred aud fifty pain of
logging trucks, twenty flat cars and two
engines, also one engine, twenty fiats,
caboose and box cars for the AVestminster construction train."
"AVIien do you expect to use all these
cars?"
"These arc only enough for the traffic
iu sight on the Coast division. AVe
shall need much moro rolling stock before the expiration of the year for the
extensions and the coal trade."
"What about passenger cars; you
have thirty to fifty passengers daily on
your train?"
"Our last dispatches say these, as well
as other cars, are being hurried as
rapidly as possible. I'm sorry business
so far exceeds our present equipment,
but we'll soon accommodate it. Now, 1
must get back to these estimates," and
the reporter left.
A   Peculiar Celestial,
Wong Foong, a Chinese lunatic, was
placed on board the Bataviaaday or
two ago, and his passage paid back to
the laud of the Mongols. Unlike the
majority of his countrymen, however,
lie did not want to go home, und mode
more thun ono successful attempt to
escape. Ho was each time recaptured
and returned to the steamship until
Saturday, when he threatened to stab
the captain and several of fhe officers.
He was ou account of his declarations of
war allowed to leave tho vessel, and he
camo over to this city last evening.
These recent circumstances iu his, in
more than one way remarkable life, recall to memory his connection with one
of Ihe darkest tragedies iu the history
of Victorin.
In the winter of 1882 a Chinaman
known as Uu Kow was found dead in a
hut on Fisgard street, his throat cut,
and his body covered with other knife
wounds. Circumstances connected
Wong Foong with tho affair, he was
arrested, ana being convicted of manslaughter, wns sentenced by Mr. Justice
McCrcight to imprisonment for 14
years in the Provincial penitentiary.
Events transpiring subsequent to the
conviction rendered It tolerably certain
thut Foong wub nn  innocent,  ninn, and
an effort was at once mado to secure his
rolcase. It was never successful, however, until last month, when tho convict walked out of the prison, once more
a free man. During his long confinement his senses had taken leave of him,
aud his throat bore a long and jagged
scar, the result of his attempt at self
destruction made about three years ago.
The idea that tho Dominion Government had voted $250,000 us compensation to him, and that his enemies were
keeping it from him, took such firm
possession of him, that with his imprisonment aud his other trouble it unsettled his mind. He drew n knife
across his throat, severing tho jugular
vein, but by the insertion of a silver
tube and skilful surgery his life was
saved, and ho eventually gained his full
bodily strength. He manages to draw
the breath of life through bis silver
windpipe very BueeesBfuflyj and converses rationally wltb Ins Vlotoria
friends, holding his throat all the while
he talks. Ho is full nf a story of cruel
treatment by tho prison authorities, but
while he talks reasonably enough, the
light of insanity in his eye leads his
auditors to doubt the truth of his tale.
He wus pronounced of unsound mind by
. two Victoria doctors, and his friends are
j anxious to send him home to China,
! He. however, wishes to get to Ottawa
ami demand what he considers his
rights from the Canadian Government.

COXSTITIT-
Our local morning cotemporary,
which haa manifested lately, not merely
nn inclination, but a determination, to
lend itself to anything that will bring it
temporary gain, regardless of tho interests of Ibis part, of tho Province, which
as a public? journal it is, at least, supposed to guard and champion, published
the following this morning, with the
added comment: "This will set at rest
" all uncertainty regarding the Premier's
" intentions:"
"Would you represent New Wi.stiiilii.ilor
Oity, If elected by ..Mimmt.on."   Answer.
[Signed.l "John IIknuuy."
To this despatch the following reply wti
promptly received:
"No thank von, I do not propose to desert
my old district. If It deserts mc, that Is
another matter."
(Signed.] "John Kouson.
Tho above despatch, it should bo
stated, was received nnd answered by
Hon. Mr. Robson while at Vancouver,
yesterday, on his way to Victoria from
the Interior.
Tho mere fact of Mr. Hobson receiving
such a despatch from a private elector
of this City, and of the private elector
sending such a despatch, is a simple and
harmless enough act iu itself. Mr. John
Hendry, ns nn individual elector, had a
perfect right to gratify his curiosity by
asking the Hon, John Hobson if he
would accept of the suffrages of the
electors of New AVostminater City; but
we emphatically protest against the
publicity which has been given to an
altogether insignificant and private matter.   Whether Mr.  Hendry   imagines
that he holds this "d d little burgh"
(to quote the forcible if not elegant Vim
Home) in his pocket, or not, we cannot
say—we take him to be too sensible a
a man to harbor such an hallucination;
but we do say that his action as above,
together with the publicity given it,
places this City in an utterly false,
ridiculous, aud disadvantageous light.
The fourteen hundred odd voters of
this City, most decidedly, have not asked Mr. Robson even lo stand for the
City, much lobs insinuated that they
would be pleased to elect him by acclamation. Under other circumstances,
we do not say that such an offer might
not have been heartily and unanimously
made; but circumstances alter eases,
und the electors of New AVestininster
City, and the District, too, we believe,
as well as Vancouver City, and some of
the'Interior constituencies, aro thoroughly convinced that, in the crisis that
has been precipitated by the Redistribution Bill, tbe true course is to sacrifice
all our predilections, to know neither
Government or Opposition—as neither
can help us iu this matter—until wc
have put ourselves in a most positive
and powerful position to help ourselves
—and to elect trustworthy nnd pledged
men, unhampered by party responsibilities or affiliations, who, putting this
question of Mainland rights and equal
justice to all sections of the Province,
hirst, will allow no conflicting interest,
obstacle, or discouragement to stand
between them and the attainment of
their most worthy object,
Such a stand no member of the Government—least of all the leader of the
GovernmetiB, could take—could, perhaps, bo expected to take—it would
neceBBitato an utter self-abnegation for
a principle, at least fur what a large aud
important portion of the Province hold
as a principle. And the Premier has
already definitely refused to sacrifice
himself for this principle—a principle,
be it remembered, which he personally
acknowledges. It is true, Mr. Robson,
aa leader of the Government, has made
out a justification for his course, under
all the circumstances (embarrassing, wo
will admit, they were), which, we believe, satisfies himself. We have no
quarrel, however, either with the Premier, or with the defence which he hus
mado for his individual and official
action in the redistribution matter; but,
because of that action, and taking into
consideration all the circumstances
affecting the question, as well as the best
course for the Lower Mainland aud the
Interior to pursue iu the premises, we
must unhesitatingly Bay—and we believe the electors will confirm this declaration at the polls—that the Hon.
John Robson, with all due deference to
his high position, his acknowledged
abilities and largo experience, and even
his expressed right convictions on the
subject of Provincial representation—Ib
not wanted as n representative at this
time for any one of the Lower Mainland
constituencies.
We know that we speak tbo sentiments of tho great majority of tho
electors of this City when wo state the
case as above, aud we believe that we
express, also, the convictions of a large
majority of the electors throughout tho
District aud in the other constituencies
referred to, We, therefore, on behalf of
the electors of Westminster City, em-
, phatically repudiate the impression
sought to be created by tho publication
in Truth this morning of the essentially
private and unauthorized invitation
noticed.
The answer of the Hon. John Robson
to the despatch quoted, wc might say,
redounds to his good souse, and he will
show still more senso if he makes no attempt to uso the utterly unimportant
incident for political purposes, for which
it was evidently intended.
Charities and Corrections,
Baltimore, May 15,—The national
conference of charities and corrections
began hero yesterday. Mayor David*
hou welcomed the visitors this evening
and numerous speeches wero made, in-
eluding one by Dr. Byers, of Columbus,
Ohio, president of the conference. Somo
letters of regret wore road, among them
ono from ex-Presldont Cleveland.
LOCAL OPTION.
In view of the fact that the Conservative Government of Lord Salisbury has
introduced a measure dealing with the
liquor traffic somewhat upon the lines
so long advocated by Sir Wilfrid Law-
son and the Liberals, and so strenuously opposed by the people vtho are now
attempting to tinker with a gigantic
evil, it is interesting to remember that
only so recently as March 11th, 1870,
tho local option resolution, then for the
first time voted upon by the House of
CommonB, was unanimously defeated by
a majority of eighty-eight votes. A
year later the majority against the proposal to enable the inhabitants of districts to reduce or extinguish the sale of
intoxicants in their midst had risen to-
one hundred and fourteen.
All this occurred in the glorious days
of the Conservative taillenium, und it
was only when Gladstone came back
that the members thought so poorly of
the benefits of strong waters upon public morals as to vote tho resolution by a
majority of twenty-nine. In 1881 the
figures had risen to forty-two, and the
next year they reached eighty-seven,
Unfortunately, foreign complications
and pressure of other affairs did not
permit the Government to act upon
these repeated resolutions of the House,
and thus it has happened thut uo bill
has yet been carried having for its object the regulation of tho drink traffic in
consonance with the will of the people.
The term "local option" Is borrowed
from a letter by Mr. Gladstone, written
in 1868, who, referring to the Permissive Bill, said that he was "disposed to
"let in tho principle of local option
"wherever it is found satisfactory,"
Thero aro a variety of schemes embodying the idea contained iu the phrase,
but the only one satisfactory to Sir
Wilfred Lawson and his friends, (who
now include almost the whole Liberal
party) is the power of direct veto, by
which the electors of any place may, if
thoy please, suppress the drink evil in
their neighborhood. Many objections,
somo reasonable, others trivial enough,
have, of course, been urged against, any
such legislation, and the question of
compensation to those who havo invested in the trade in a locality where ti
subsequent vote excludes it, is undoubtedly the most serious problem connected with local option legislation proposals.
In the proposala of the present Government the country would take upon
itself the payment of the publicans for
the loss sustained by the vote of the
people. The Temperance party (men of
all shades in politics) object to this.
They urge that the liquor trade has no
right to compensation in any shape or
form; that alcohol is the cause of great
loss to the state on account of the maintenance of prisons, asylums, hospitals,
&c; that drink is the cause moro or
less apparent of poverty and crime, and
that, therefore, tho state is not called
upon to pay for the removal of the
cause of so great evils. It is urged, too,
that even now the liquor trade is a pet
protected interest, and that Ub many
privileges have been used lo aid class
and sectional legislation, and that political, no less than moral, corruption is
distinctly traceable to alcohol. There is
liltle doubt that hitherto the great
brewers and distillers have wielded gigantic Influence in British politics, and
it is In uo sense curious that the Conservative party is doing all it can to help
thorn in their difficulty.
One thing is sure, local option must
come, and that before many years. For
the trade it would bo better could the
question bo dealt with now, for the
longer the time of delay, the more uncertain are the chances for compensation.
Tho temperance people are gaining
strength eveiyday in England, as elsewhere, and are daily crying, withCassio,
'O, God! that men should put un
' enemy iu their mouths to steal away
" their brains; that wc should, with joy,
' plensance, revel, and applause, trans-
'form ourselves into beasts!" The
abstainers of the United Kingdom have
strong leaders, Lawson, Manning aud
AVilberforce, and others, who, calm and
dispassionate as they may be upon
other topics, repeat, with Othello's
lieutenant, " O, thou invisible spirit of
wine,  if thou  hast no name to be
known by, let us call thee devil."

VEGETABLE  IVORY.
The Source, and Uie of » Quoor-lAOkloK
Tropical Nut.
On the Atlantic docks in Urooklyn a
few days ago. a reporter of the New
York Evening Post picked up a queer-
looking nut. In size it might be coin-
pared with a walnut, though it was
somewhat larger: hut in shape it waB
vory differont, being not round, but flat
On several sides, lt differed also from
tho walnut in tho surface of its shell,
whioh resombled tho chestnut's incolor,
but not so smooth; and it differed still
moro in tho substanceof itsahell, which
offered only a moderate resistance to
tho point of a penknife. Tho moment,
however, that tho shell was penetrated,
u resistance was encountered which was
hy no means moderate. Tlio nut inside
was a solid white substance, almost as
hard as marhlo.
Ascertaining that this was a specimen
of tho ivory nuts, which aro articles of
commerce, tho reporter Visited tho chief
local dealer in thorn and asked somo
questions about their nature and uses.
Tho dealer said: "While .ivory nut' is
tho name used in this country, tho
Spanish namo is 'tagun.'iiiul in England
and Oormany tho nut is known as the
'eorossos nut'—which it is not, tho
eorossos nut boing something entirely
differont. Tho nut without its sholl Is
horo also called 'vegetal.!., ivory.' It
is ono of the uncultivated products
or South America, and is imported chiefly from Ecuador and tho
United States of Colombia. It grows
upon a species of palm troo about fourteen foot high, which is found in im-
monso groves along tho banks of tho
larger streams, preferring low, marshy
noil, but not disdaining the higher
ground. What is called tho fomalo tree
yields a perfumed blossom, and, llko
tho cocoanut tree, bears buds and blossoms at tho samo time that the ripened
nuts aro dropping to tho ground. The
'male tree' also blossoms, hut its flowors
never turn to fruit. The nuts grow in
thick clusters close to tlio trunk of tho
tree. Thoy are gathered by the natives,
who carry them in canoes or on their
hacks iu baskots from the groves to tho
towns and villages along the rivers,
whoro thoy sell thorn for a mere trifle.
Tho traffic in tho United States of Colombia is chiolly on tho Magdalrma river,
and in Ecuador along various streams.
Tho nuts are collected at tho villages
by small, flat-bottomed stcamors, burning wood for fuel, and drawing only four
and a half feet of water whon loaded.
These carry tho nuts principally to
Aspinwall, whonco they are shipped in
schooners and by tho steamers ot tho
Atlas lino to tho various importing
places. Tho schooners are rarely loadod
with ivory nuts alone, but receivo about
half thoir cargo in eocotinuts, which aro
invariably put on top of the ivory nuts;
the latter wbuld break tho cocoanuts if
their positions woro rovorsed, while tho
cocoanuts could as easily break a pile of
ntinnon balls.
"Hamburg, Oormany, is tho largest
market for ivory nuts. Now York comes
noxt, and is tho only port in this country to which they aro shipped. San
Francisco tried the trado but had to
givo it up. London is third, though not
many yoars ago it was second. I think
that porhaps fashion bus had something
to do with it in sotting it. face against
nrticlos mado from the ivory nut.
"Those articles are principally buttons, and for a .common or medium-
grade button thoro is no better material.
At tho factories boys called 'shuckers'
aro employed to knock off tho shells of
tho nuts. Tho 'ivory' is then taken by
sawyers and 'slabbed,' that is, cut with
fine saws into disks. After being assorted as to sizes the slabs aro put in bins
to .dry thoroughly. At first thoy aro
bluish wbito; when dried they lose somo
of their bulk and turn dead-white. Next,
girls put thorn into turning-machinos,
by which thoy aro converted Into various
bntton shapes. Dyers then tako them
and turn thom out of thoir vats in four
or fivo sots of colors. To others a mottled appearance is imparted with brushes.
They aro also made to imitate vory closely tortoise-shells, black cloths, especial-
. ly blaok silk, and Scotch goods. I dare
i Bay you havo often had ivory-
nut buttons on your clothing, and
thought they woro bono or cloth-covered.
They wear and hold a polish excellently.
Suoh things as baby rattles, umbrella
heads, cane heads, and hooks and eyes,
aro also made from ivory-nuts.
"The older the 'ivory' gets, tho harder
it becomes, and, if undyed, tho whiter.
Its usefulness has becomo greatly restricted by tho small size of tho nut.
Experiments have long been unsuccessfully tried to make the ivory into blocks
ot any size hy reduolng tho nuts to powder and then moulding the mass together by powerful machine pressure.
If any one could succeed in inventing
■means to do this, it is safo to say a fortune would await him. 'Vegetablo ivory'
■would then supersede celluloid, which
\s affected by moisture and smells of
camphor, and is also muoh more expensive. Tho nupply of ivory nuts is vast,
it the head of the Amazon river, not to
mention other parts of South America,
there are thousands of acres thickly
lovered with nuts, which, left for years
|mtouchod, aro rotting away.
"In the market here eight grades are
lecognizod, according to tho places from
Ivhioh the nuts oome. Tho Ecuador nuts
lank highest, and of thoso thoro arc
two grades, the first coming from Tuma-
lo, and tho second from Guayaquil."

PERSONAL AND  LITERARY.
—The late Robert Browning translated
parts of Homer into English when he
was eight years old.
—Rev. Thomas R. Bacon, son of the
late Leonard Bacon, has become a professor In the University ot California.
—W. Clark Russell, "the novelist of
the sea," lately said to an interviewer
that his friends "try and tempt me
ashore. 'No,' I say; 'I am web-footed,
and I shall stick to the sea."'
—Twoautograph letters of Talleyrand
were lately sold in Paris. They were
written to a lady, the first on the death
of her husband: "Dear Madam: Alasl
Your devoted Talleyrand," and the second on her remarriage: "Dear Madam:
Bravol  Your devoted Talleyrand."
—Mrs. Longman, widow of the late
Thomas Longman, died in London recently In her seventy-fifth year. She
was the last of the generation of tho
house that published for Scott, Southoy,
Coleridge, Mooro, Campbell, Sydney
Smith, Mackenzie and Maoaulay. She
took a keen Interest in all tho great
literary projects with which her husband
was connected.
—Whllo the number of new books
published In England and the United
States was smaller last) year than during tho previous one, us shown by the
tables published in this department recently, Germany shows an increased
activity, nearly a thousand more volumes being issued during 1880 than in
1888, whllo the advance Is among the
better branches of literature,
—There Is a peculiar interest as to
tho disposition of Robert Browning's
library. It Includes a collection of books
and manuscripts bequeathed to him by
his friend Lander, among thom being
copies of some of Landor'rrarest works,
annotated by the author, with many
letters and papers. Prof, Colvln had
access to this treasure when ho was pro-
paring his volumo on Landor for the
"Men of Letters Series."
—Tbe Abysslnians wlll soon have the
"Pilgrim's Progress" in their own
tongue, tho Alhnmrlc. It has heen
translated by Gebra Georges, a student
in Dr Comuuindi's institution at Florence. It will be printed at Crlschona
in tlie natfvo type, and bo ready In the
autumn. Tho Religious Tract Society
is bearing half the cost of its 'production, about fifty pounds sterling; and
the Alhamric will be the eighty-fourth
language Into which Bunyan's book has
beon translated.
—Nothing, it is said, pleases William
Morris, the English poet, more than to
be mistaken fov a sailor. He is robust
and square-built, has shaggy hair, and
delights in rough apparel, and his general appearance is somewhat nautical.
One night he was overhauled by a seafaring man. "Avast there!" cried tho
stranger; "don't I know you? Weren't
you ut ono timo mato of the brig Sea
Swallow?" To bo mistaken for a sailor
was charmtng; to bo mistaken for the
mate of a ship bearing so poetic a name
as the Sen Swallow was simply glorious,
"Yes, 1'nin ho," Bald Morris, and ho
locked arms with tho stranger, piloted
him into an alo houso and filled him
full of liquids and substantial!..

since I gavo you a half dollar!" Tramp
—'Must a wook, sir; but, groat heavens,

—"Havo you selected your bridesmaid

"But she's so ugly!" "That's why I
chose her, mamma, dear. I'm not particularly handsome myself."—The Jury.

—Judklnson, who has just heen rejected by Miss Martinvale, was met
near her gate by tho young lady's aunt,
who affectionately remarked: "You
have just boen to see ray niece. How is
the dear girl?" "Vory much on the decline," replied Judklnson, as he
hastened away.—N. Y. Ledger.
—She (age eighteen)—"When 1 go

The Importance of Marriage.
Don't rush into matrimony, girls. Remain single until you aro woll In tbe
twenties, when body and mind aro alike
well developed. You can not overestimate the importance of a thorough
knowledge of tho man whom you desire
to marry. Uprightness, fixedness of principle, an unselfish and generous disposition, with good business abilities,
should be regarded as indispensable. If
a young mun is a good son and brother
he will make a kind husband, provided
you do your part. Do not he won by
trifles,   .
England's oldest missionary society is
now devoting Its energies to the advancement ot the spiritual condition of
the Canadian Indians, and Is known as
the "New England Company." It dates
baok from 1049, in which year an ordinance was passed creating a corporation ot sixteen persons, called "The
President and Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Now England,"
with power to acquire lands, goods and
money. The society had its origin in
the Interest created at that time by the
labors and writings of John Eliot, and
owed Its first endowment to Oliver
Cromwell, the Lord Protector, who ordered a collection to bo made in tbe
parishes ot England and Wales, thoroby
obtaining the sum ot £12,000.—Chicago

TO THE  ELEOTORS
New Westminster District.
OliNTLKMENi—As I have already announced,
I beg to oiler myself as a candidate for the scat In
tho Commons made vacant by tho death of our
late member, and Iconic before you as a supporter of the Government of Hlr John Macdonald, reserving to myself, of course, the right to
act independently should tho action of the Gov-
eminent in any matter seem prejudleal to onr
interests.
I would strongly urge immediate attention Io
the improvement of the River where required,
for the protection of the rich agricultural lands
of the Dislrict, and if elected, 1 shall ut once
proceed to Ottawa and leave no stone unturned
to secure the immediate appointment of a
competent engineer with a view to tho prompt
undertaking of this most Important work,
As you nro aware, the duty nn certain kinds
of mining machinery hns been remitted in this
Province as a special concession to llrltlsh Columbia on account of tho special conditions obtaining hero. I would stmnglv urge the further
application of this principle of special tariff arrangements, so us to relievo consumers of goods
which must ho Imported, whllo preserving the
protection of our agricultural and other Interests.
Tlie land laws of the Dominion, having beon
framed without close consideration of our requirements, are lu many points unsuitable, for
example in the conditions ns to clearing. I
would endeavor to secure immediate, reform In
this Important matter.
Subsidies having been granted to railways in
tho various Provinces of the Dominion, I should
urgently present the claims to similar assistance
of railways within onr own'Provlnce.
Should tho City of New Westminster doclde lo
build a bridge across tho Fraser, 1 should uso
my best endeavors lo obtain a substantial subsidy for the work, urging that au undertaking
of this character should rank with canals and
railways as one entitled to national aid,
Tho next census will undoubtedly show such
an Increase iu the wcalthand population of this
District us will constitute au undeniable claim
to increased representation In the Commons,
That claim, It elected, 1 shall support to the utmost of my ability.
Although, with the growth of the District,
the mall service has been Improved and extended, it still Ings far behind our requirements.
I should give special attention to this part of
your representative's work, feeling thai It Is
one which Is of vital importance.
I should urge tho enactment of suoh fishery
regulations, especially in the issuing ofllcences,
as would, without anv Injustice to tho canneries, the Importance of which to tho prosperity of
the District all must recognize, fully protect
the free fishermen, and encourage tho settlement amongst us of tho groatcsl possible num
bcrof thnt Industrious nnd hardy class of men.
All enact men ts and regulations for the protection of white labor would receive my hearty
support.
Continued work towards the improvement of
Iho harbors of Now Westminster nud Vancouver, and tho efficient lighting and buoying of
the Name, Is a matter which would have my
closest attention at all times.
In it word, I should constantly urge upon the
(lovermnent tho wisdom of a liberal policy iu
public works in this District, tho vast resources
of which make it certain thnt such a policy
would bo amply justified by results.
Trusting to havo tho opportunity of seeing

There was no police court, this morning. Officer Smith says it is "the calm

Tho scarcity of tagless dogs on the
streets is the best evidence of the pound-

Tlio str. Irving cleared for Chilliwack

the usual amount of freight and number

The town has beon picturesquely

and equestrian talent is &aul to ho a line

The str, Yoseniite left tliis morning
for Victoria with forty head of cattle and
horses, a heavy general cargo and a largo
number of passengers. She had among
her other freight a largo consignment of
hay.
A largo quantity of lumber haa been
deposited on the lower end of Mary st.,
for the new Cunningham block on Front

be too narrow to accomodate the building material-
Messrs. Reid A Carrie's new promises are nearly finished. The firm
will have a fine carriage show-room in
which they will havo on viow specimens
of the latest achievements nl eastern

The salmon run last night was again
good, the boats averaging about 30 fish

tlie salmon run.
The townsite of Bellingham is now incorporated with the city of Fairhaven

Attention has been drawn reucatedly
to tho condition of the sidewalk between
the Queens Hotel aud Merivale street.
It is not only uncomfortablo io walk upon but positively dangerous and needs

Immense quantities of excellent hay
form the larger part of every up-river

The lacroBBe practice was well attended last night, though several of the
seniors were absent. It is to be hoped
the interest iu the game Mill not be
allowed to ting; a grand start has been
made and the good already accomplished
must be maintained.
Messrs. Wilson and Wise are hard at
work turning out a fine stock of pleasure
bouts wherewith to cater to the summer
trade. Their premises are a little out
of the way, but no doubt their patrons
will overlook that io enjoy the novel
pleasure of having a bout ride in a hired
boat on (ho Fraser.
The proposed meeting of ihe Boating
Club for next Tuesday evening will be
postponed until the following (Wednesday) evening on account of the general
mealing of the Lacrosse Club occurring
ou Tuesday night. At the boating club
meeting some very interesting statistics
will be presented by the committee appointed to investigate into ways and
means.
Messrs, McPherson A Thompson have
inaugurated something quito new in
city window decoration. They have replaced the usual fine show cases with
growing plants and moss, The centre
plant is a fuchsia, the largest iu the province und imported from Now York direct. It is covered with flowers, and presents a most splendid uppeurnncc. The
entire window looks delightfully fresh
and cool and reflects credit nn the proprietors' artistic taste.
The opening of tlio base ball season
across the line is causing our city enthusiasts to deplore tho absence of a club
here. They cannot see why the great
game Bhould not be represented at
Queen's Park, ns well hh tho otlior sports.
In all probability somo definite action
towards resuscitating the old club or
starting a brand new one with u good
healthy membership uud a supply nf
enthusiasm enough to lastoverthis summer will soon be taken.
The smell emanating from the Chinese quarters at the present time is
"offal.'' The Celestials do not seem to
mind it all, but it Is the severest kind of
penance for the European who has to

the Board of Health to tackle, hut if it
is allowed to continue summer after
Hummer, they will huve n much bigger
job on their hands somo day not far off.
Thero if. no temporising with u foul

Caught In the Act.
It is reported in this city that a wagon
and team have been seized at the boundary line and the driver arrested in the
attempt to smuggle a large quantity of
wiro across the line from the United
States into British Columbia. Who the
mun is cannot be ascertained just now,
but that he has got himself into a serious
pickle goes without saying. This is the
fitst important seizure for some time,
nnd will, no doubt, prove discouraging
to others ambitious to cheat the customs
authorities. Tho line is closely watched now, more closely than ever before;
and it is becoming daily a more
difficult matter to smuggle articles
oss without detection.
Hoi-Hew Drowned.
A few moments after the K de K laud
ed at tho Brownsville wharf on her 9
o'clock trip this morning, a team of
horses belonging to Mr. Thomas White,
who runs a stage between this city unci
Blaine, backed off the slip into the
water and was drowned. The horseB
had just been taken from the ferry, and
one of them, a restless animal, acted
badly and commenced backing towards
the end of the slip, dragging its mate
with it. An attempt was made by the
driver to lead tho horses forward, but
without effect, and both animals fell
into tho stream und were swept away
and drowned. The team was valued at
$400 and the harness at $50.
'Die Pf-oplfl't Candidate.
Mr. J. C. Brown's candidature, to represent this City iu the Provincial Parliament, which we announced yesterday,
is so generally popular that thero is
every prospect that he will be returned
by acclamation. The requisition, started
yesterday afternoon, is still on its rounds,
receiving large accessions of influential
aud representative names from all
classes. It will bo by far the largest
and most unanimous requisition that
has ever beeu presented to any candidate in this city. There is a universal
conviction that Mr. Brown is both able
and willing to look after our rights in
the Provincial Assembly—that, m fact,
bo is just the man for the breach.
timber rolled buck on him crushing nnd
breaking the right leg. Fortunately the
log was prevented by other objects from
rolling further, or he would have
been killed outright. No time
. lost in making Gulren as
comfortable as possible, nnd by his own
request he was conveyed to tint, city for
medical assistance. There being no
steamer at hand the long journey of 125
miles had to be made in a canoe. Tliis
means of transportation, though far
from comfortable or rapid, served the
purpose, and the wounded man bore the
trip with remarkable fortitude considering the intense pain he endured. The
canoe arrived at Vancouver yesterday aud
Guire was brought to the city last
-night ou the local train. He was removed to St. Mary's Hospital, where
Drs. Fagan and Walker goon made the
poor fellow as comfortable as possible, j
Dr. Fagan said to-duy thut the crush |
und break nre very bad, but he feels j
confident that tlie patient will be pulled
through without the loss of his leg.
1'tnd tin and Labor.
A meeting of delegates from tlio various labor organizations of tho city was
held in the Bank of British Columbia
building last night, aud a Trades and
Labor CoVmcil duly formed. The delegates present were as follows: Typographical Union, No.235—W. II. Lewis,
B. E. Nye nnd O. C. Steuart; Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners—J. Istos,
A. W. Mcintosh and F. Wright; Plumbers nnd Sheet Metal Workers' Union—
W. E. Vnnston, W. H. Todd and G, R.
Welch; Workingmeu's League—T. Turn-
bull, G. R. Welch and James Gow.
After adopting a title the election of
officers, to serve provisionally until the
regular election in July, was held ami

Gow; Vice-President, Bort E, Nye;
Secretary, C. C. Steuart; Treasurer,' A.
W. Mcintosh; Guard, AV. H. Todd; Finance Committee, Messrs. Isles, Lewis and
Welch.
It was agreed that the Council should
bo governed by the constitution of Ihe
Vancouver Trades Council until the committee on constitution Bhould report.
An invitation was extended to the
painters and all other labor organizations to send delegates to the Council,
the basis of representation being
three delegates from each union. Tlie
meeting adjourned to meet again on
Thursday evening, 22nd inst.
Obituary.
Mr. A. F, Cotton, City Engineer,
reived a despatch yesterday announcing
the death of MrB. Cotton, wife of Major
Cotton, of the Northwest Mounted
Police, stationed at Regina, N. W. T,
Mrs. Cotton wus u Miss White, daughter
of the Hon. the late Thomas White, of
Montreal, and was one of the most accomplished ladies of that city. She was
also a lady of exceedingly pleasing presence, was very amiable oi disposition,
and was most popular in her social circle
both in Ottawa and Montreal. Not only
will her husband and family, but a very
large circle of friends, feel sovwely the
loss sustained by her demise at a
period when life was brightest and most
promising.
I'rofcH-Ioiiula and Amateurs.
Several of our city athletes will contend in the sports at Hastings ou the
Queen's-birthday. Ono amusing thing
about the programmes got up in this
Province is the offering of money prizes
to amateurs. As if any honorable umn*
tour would deign to barter away his
precious title for a paltry twenty-five or
fifty dollars, or a dozen such, prizes.
Luckily that shady American curiosity,
t he professional-amateur, has not penetrated this Province yet, and long may
ho remain where he is; as such incongruous mixtures are debasing to respectable athletics, and serve to drive true
nmntenrsout of the field in disgust.
The professional has a right to a monev
prize, and only he, but the amateur, be
it known unto those programme authors,
can conntend only for n medal, cup or
other trophy.
An Exciting llunawny.
There was a lively runaway on tin
hill yesterday afternoon. A team of
large powerful horses started down Mar;
street from souiewhero in tho neighbor
hood of Montreal street j they came down
Mary street at a furious gait and turned
along Royul avenue, just missing a big
pile of stones by the roadside. The
driver lay flat in tho wagon tugging at
the lines for dear life, but without in any
way checking the mod flight of his team.
The frightened animals were at length
brought to a stand still near Park Lane
none tho worso for the exciting trip but
bathed iu foam and perspiration from
head to foot. Tlie driver was completely exhausted by his efforts nud was almost too tired to swear ut his horses,
Revornl persons hud miraculous escapes
along the line of flight followed by the
runaways. It would seem that moro
care should be taken to see that teams
are properly hitched, when the driver
happens to leave them alone.
Vancouver County Court.
Judge Bole returned from Vancouver
yesterday, having disposed of a docket
Ut the County Court there of about 40
cases, in a dny and a half. The cases,
many of which wero for a large amount,
were not of a very Interesting nature to
the genoral public. In the caso of Mc-
Pougal vs. Dovlne, His Honor delivored
judgment In favor of plaintiff for $5 aud
costs, as, although tlio defendant was
not legally justified under tho act, the
case was not ono for anything boyond
nominal damages. All appeals from the
sinnll debts court wore marked ''
jurisdiction,"
Tlio Latent Candidates
Last evening tho friends of Mr. Jnmes
Punch persuaded him to stand for election to tho local legislature. Mr. Punch
consented nnd will run for the district,
whero he is promised a large support.
He will lay his views before tho doctors
ut un early date, nud will ills.) commence
n canvass of the district almost binned
lately.
Mr. John Kirkland, of Ladnei's, is also
In the field, and will shortly lay his
views on matters of public Importance
beforo the olectofs. The names of several other gentlemen aro mentioned as
candidates for the district, but so far
they havo not announced themselves.
Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla.
Fount! at T.n.t.
Th. cn_G of MrB. Ginnard, which camo
boforc the Council on Monday night for
rcliof, hns beon happily solved. Mr..
C.innard arrived in the City last week,
destitute of means, in search other husband, who had beeu here sonic time
ago. All clue to tho man was lost, but
it was thought he had gone to Tacoma,
and Ihe Council determined to send the
woman thero as she wag anxious to continue the senrcli on the Sound. This
was rendered unnecessary, however, by
the receipt of a card at the
post ofllce from Qlnnard, asking that all
mail matter for hint bo forwarded to
Blaine. The poor woman was in the
poBt office, and iu a terrible state of
mind whon the card arrived, and her
joy can bo more easily imagined than
described whon tlie postmaster told her
tho very welcome news. Mrs. Ginnard
will be sent over to Blaine by tho first
stage, and sho will probably have joined
her husband by to-morrow night.
ym_ u Bona.
A despatch from Kamloops says: One
of the largest meetings ever held here
was that called by the supporters of Mr.
Semlin and which assembled in Ita ven's
Hall this evening. The chairman, after
explaining tho object of the meeting,
called upon Mr. Semlin, who made a
speech strongly denouncing tho policy of
tlio present Government. Mr. G. B.
Martin, M. P. 1*., ana Mr. James Mcintosh, replying to Mr. Semlin, made
short speeches, ill which they tried to
justify tho course tho Government had
fiursued, but in which they entirely
ailed.
Dr. TuiiHtall was then called upon,
and on comi_g forward was received
wltb loud applause. Dr. Tunslnll made
a splendid speech debouncing the course
the present Governin.nt had pursued in
passing such an iniqiitous Redistribution Bui and deplored tho sectional feeling existing betweon Vancouver Island
and the Mainland. Tin fooling here is
very strong against tlh Government,
ana it Is almost certain Hint the Opposition will return threo ncuibo.s Irom
Ynlo District.

A great deal of untruth ia contained
in one short paragraph of to-day's issue
of tho morning paper. The paragraph
relates to taxes and the value of taxable
property. It is not only misleading and
untrue, hut seems to have been inserted
with the intentional purpose of destroying the credit of Westminster flbVojul.
However, as tbe paper in question has
never been noted for veracitv on any
subject, its wild figuring on the rate of
taxation will receive no credence from
men capable of working out tho common
rules oi addition and subtraction. The
following figures from the City clerk's
ofllce are correct, and it will bo seen by
thom tbat the statement of Truth is fals'o
in every detail:
1HH9: City tax. 10 mills, with 25 per
cent rebate if paid by June !.0th. Debenture tax, il 3-20 mills, no rebate.
Total net tax 1889,10 13-20 mills.
1890: City tax, 10 mills, with 25 per
cent, rebate if paid by June 80th. Debenture tax, 7 mills, no rebate, Total
net tax, 1890,14).< mills; increase over
1889, 3 17-20 mills.
It will easily be seen by the above
figures that the rate of taxation has not
"more than doubled," and that the increase iB not "at least four times greater
than last year." The assessment this
year was raised about $1,000,000, but a
third of this only applies to tho old territory (that assessed in 1889); the other
two thirds applies to the new territory
taken in in this year's assessment for
the Ilrst time. The loans raised by last
year's Council, and not assessed for last
year, aggregute two-thirds of the increase in this year's taxation. Much ns
it might wish to do so. Truth cannot
deny the correctness of those figures;
and, perhaps, the same paper will explain its object in publishing such lying
statements to the uiscredit of tlie City.
Till.   Dizzy   l'I.>|.j.er.
We nre astonished nt our local cotemporary. Ub terrible somersault hafl evidently turned its head. In a rash and
utterly vain effort to show that we were
incorrect yesterday, when we stated in
('fleet that it had been found impossible
to get a definite pledge from the Government that tho " balance of power" theory would not be recognized in the now redistribution measure to be brought in after^ the census,
Truth, in tliis morning'., issue, quotes
from the Colonist's report of the interview between tho Government and the
Mainland Delegation certain clauses
which, as fnr as they bear upon the point
at all, confirm our contention and place
the Truth, which appears to have lost
even its grip on the meaning of words,
along with its integrity, in a helplessly
ridiculous position. Wo will reproduce
tho question and answer, quoted by
Truth from tho report of tho interview
in question, which are the only ones
bearing on tho point ruised by our co-
.temporory against this paper, and let
the reader judge for himself:
A member—But this balance of power seems
to keen bold, and thoy may wiv: "No we have
Iho balance of power, and we arc going to keep
it for four years."
Hon. Mrltobsou—All we claim now In that
ihcro arc no conditions known loexist lo justify
disturbing the balance of power, but to wait
until the census is taken.
And it is this distinctly evasive and
negative answer of the Premier which
our deluded cotemporary parades as
" quite explicit," and as " tho promises
he has made"—with which it endeavors to support its hardy assumption that we were not '"stating tho facts ns they stand." Wo are
sorry for our cotemporary, if it is reduced
to such pitable straits, aud we invito it,
beforo it is too late, to come out from its
unworthy and untonnble position afld
assert its independence once more. Verily, the way of tho flopper is hard,

NUMBER 88.
TO THE ELEOTORS
New Westminster District,
GENTLEMEN:—In viow of the near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of our late
representative (the much-respected D,
Chisholm) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that hoitor, I will now lay before you
some of my views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.
I have 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
residence of over 30 years in tliis,. Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has had the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
mo liberal ideas, therefore 1 claim I am
a Liberal -Conservative." Owing to tlie
fact that party Hues ure not denned in
British Columbia as they are in the older
provinces, 1 consider that our representatives are not iu duty bound to give a
throutjh-thick-and-thin support to any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
good measures which may be brought
before them, und to consider the prosperity of the Dominion ns a whole, but
our own Province in particular, and
should a measure come before them
which they consider in any way detrimental to the interests of this Province
they should take their stand like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East', and many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, und
which we cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over tlie
line, and in many cases tlie articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from tho Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles are wrought from the States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and aro met with such 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 had
not received a good supply from California there would havo been a 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 state of
affairs is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for tho last eleven years
our stock raisers are littlo better prepared to meet hard winters than they
wero beforo, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped tho benefit of the
N, P. are the manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
(lueHtion,Iwonidadvocate"Keciprocitv"
in many articles which aro at present in the Tariff lists, as I think
it would bo beneficial to both
countries, and the working man would
not havo to go down so deep into his
pockets to buy what lie needs to eat and
wear. I am aware tlie Government must
have a revenue to carry on tlie affairs of
the country, but 1 would have "luxuries"
pay more and get at tlie pockets of the
richer classes who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of the late Mr. Chisholm, he was unable
to be in his place this session, und very
little during the previous one, so wo of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before tho notice of
the House. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
been in his seat, I do not think tlie Post-
muster-Generul would have boen left so
much in tho dark concerning tho necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Fraser as he seems to havo been
when he proposed to cut off tho mail
subsidy from that important route, and
thero are other places in tlie District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider should receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope that in the near future our
District will reach that point that we
may look for it to be divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, and when the census
returns are iu I think the necessary
number of population will bu found to
demand such additional representation.'
The protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should ruceivo my earnest
attention, also the works for improving
thu channel at the Sandheuds, in view
of tho oxpected increase iu our shipping
interests.
I consider tho Province should have
control over all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District in particular, I feel should receive more than
ordinary attention,
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through tho Delta lauds from the mouth
of the Serpentino to Fraser Kiver, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from the Fraser Kiver to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to mo.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, und encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coming here fast
enough; I would not like to see a largo
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our gloriouB Province
a bad name.
■ There are many other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would make
this address too long. I hope to see as
many ns possible before the election,
whon I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send tfue notice of time and pluce of meetings.
During my long residence in the Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth aud requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I have the honor to be elected
I assure you I shall watch over the interests ot this District faithfully and to
the best of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go as a true British Columbian and to do my duty as such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.
