POLITICAL NOTES.
DEATH OF BISHOP D'HERBOMEZ.
The Aged Prelate Panes Away After a
Long Illneil.—Short Sketch of an
Eventful Life.
his intellect remained unimpaired to
the last, a very unusual occurrence for
men who have spent so long a life of
brain work as had His Lordship. It
had been apparent for several days that
the sufferer's end was near, and His
Lordship on Tuesday morning remarked to his attendants that he feared he
would not last much longer. Shortly
before the time of his expiration the attendant observed a change, and hastily
summoned Father Fa yard, but before
that gentleman could reach the bedside
the end of a long, busy, and good life
had come. Tho gentleness aud patience
for which the deceased prelate was so
noted among those with whom he came
in contact, wero ever noticeable throughout his long and painful illness.
The solemn mass of Requiem for the
repose of the deceased's soul will take
filace at St. Peter's Cathedral, com men c-
ng at 0 o'clock to-morrow morning, and
will be followed hy the interment,
which will tako place at St. Mary's
Mission. The Indians who arc at present assembled at Sechelt for a spiritual
retreat under Bishop Durien and several
priests, arrived in the city this morning
to be present for the obsequies, and left
this afternoon for the Mission to attend
4he funeral. All that was mortal of the
late bishop was lying In state yesterday,
enclosed in a plain casket, at the palace
on Blackwood street, and was removed
to the cathedral tliis morning.
So closely was the deceased prelate
connected with the establishment of
the Roman Catholic Missiou in the
early days in this Province that we
give a
HISTORY  OP  HIS  LIFE.
The late Bishop D'Herbomez was born
in 1822, at Brillon, Diocese of Earnbrai,
in France. Ho studied at the Diocesan
Seminary, and in 1848 entered the congregation of the missionaries Oblates of
Mary Immaculate, after which be was
ordained a priest by tbe founder of the
order, Mgr. Eugene de Mastenod, who at
that time was the Bishop of Marsailles,
and sent to Oregon to join the other
members of the congregation, who had
established missions iu that territory
some time previously. Embarking at
Marsailles. he reached Vancouver,
-Wash., after a voyage of six mouths,
and in 1851 he was removed toOlympia.
From thence the Rev. Father Ricourd,
Superior of the Oblates in Oregon, sent
the deceased priest to establish the mission of St. Joseph at Attanorn, Yakima
Co., where the fate Rev. Father Chirouse
was engaged in instructing the Indians.
Recalled to Olympia in 1853 some
years were spent in visiting and instructing tho Indians scattered about
Puget Sound, until, in 1858, at the
earnest request of Bishop Demers, of
Vancouver Island, he was appointed
superior of the Oblates on the Pacific
Coast, when  he transferred his head-
Suarters to Esquimalt. In 1860 Father
I'Herbomez extended his good work to
this Provinco, by sending two Oblate
fathers to establish a missiou for the
Indians of the Fraser River at this city,
having previously established one at
Okanngan Lake, and 1802 the well-
known St. Mary's mission was founded
by him. At the request of Bishop
Demers, the holy father, created British
Columbia into a vicarate-apostolic, with
the then Father D'Herbomez, first vicar-
apostolic, and on the 7th October, 1804,

Nothing was talked of on the streets
ycBtorday or last night, but Mayor
Brown's great meeting. It waB conceded on every hand that a moro complete
victory was never gained in this city.
Busiuess on the political stock exchange to-duy was brisk. The latest
authentic quotations give the following:
"Brown stock, at premium, demand
very Btrong. Cunningham chances, very
feeble; going down steadily; no demand,
all holders selling out at any price."
Another interesting bulletin from the
front, from our special war correspondent, will be found in another column.
It will be seen that the noblo band of
patriots—the dauntless eight—are overcoming all obstacles on thoir wny te the
,sea, and the Independent corps is plainly in the lead.
A grand political meeting was held in
the Imperial Opera House at Vancouver
last night, which was addressed in turn
by all the candidates for the representation of the Terminal Citv, eight in number, each Bpeaker being limited to twenty
minutes. Capt. R. O. Tatlow and Mr.
F. C. Cotton made the best speeches of
the evening, and appealed to be the
favorites of the electors assembled.
Mr. Thos. Cunningham was slightly
and unintentionally misroported in our
report yesterday of tho meeting on
Tuesday night. Mr. Cunningham did
not say "he wus not suro whether he
had voted on the Redistribution Bill or
not," as our reporter inadvertently got
it, but that remark referred to the live
per cent, royalty clause in n railway aid
act, whoreby certain railway companies
woro empowered to exact a royalty of
five per cent, on all minerals found
within their land grants from the Government; and. it Bhould be stated, also,
that it was this provision which Mr.
Cunningham fiaid he would "have
voted against, and taken his chances,
an hour afterwards." Mr. Cunningham's explanation for his absence from
the House on a certain occasion waB
necessarily jammed into a couple of
lines'yesterday. In effect, the explanation was that the time of his obsence
was the occasion of Mr. Semlln's "want
of confidence" motion in tho Government, and not when the redistribution
question was before the House at all,
These corrections and amendments nre
only just to Mr. Cunningham.

Mission, .lime 4.—Tho grand tour of
the district candidates was resumed at
4 o'clock on Tuesday morning, when tho
good steamer Delaware wns chartered
and transported the party Home twelve
miles up-river and landed them ou the
other side at the limekilns.   Up to this
the country have that better would be
done for us in tbe future than in the
future than in the past; tbat promises
would he better kept than iu the paBt
or that a just Redistribution Bill would
be ever passed through the House?"
There was no guarantee, and consequently he could not support a
a Government to.carry out measures in
the future which it had failed in the
past. He was inclined to think that
if Mr. Robson were returned to power
he would do the same thing over again.
Mr. Robson seemed to think the country
could not get along without him. This
was n great mistake; the country would
not object seriously to Mr. Robson's re-
point the nartv had been transported,-    ™ u" ° ZiT ffiiJi1'""TZ   IZ
not with rieliolit of amnio: hu£-hv fl(1: tuement and doubt ess good and true
not with delight of course, but—by tlie
steamer; after this the walk of four
miles over a rough trail, full of bog holes
and iu the midst of u shower of fain,
was anything but delightful. On arriving at Agassi/. Station, shortly after
7 a. in., a general wringing out was gone
through, and tbe candidates then sat
down to wait for 1) o'clock, the hour
fixed for tbe political meeting. The
hour came and went, hut only half a
dozvu people turned up, owing probably to the wetness of the morning,
consequently uo meeting was held. The
half dozen fanners, however, wero
good material for the candidates to
work on, and iu littlo knots
politics ran high and the situation was
thoroughly dfseuBsed. From nil that
could bo learned the large -majority of
tho electors are prepared to voto against
the present Government, and not without good reason. Many of the settlers
have held their lunds for 25 years, ini-
roved them and paid taxes, but have
ad scarcely a dollar paid back in  the
fay of public improvements. There is
not a public highway in the settlement
except the road   leading to the Hot
Springs, and that only accommodates a : „ , tl • ,,,_ ,,,„  ,*„„   t„k« »_,*,_...
few.   Promises have been made time !«*'»*» ,»** tm\ Hon. John Robson
men would be found who would fill his
position with just as much ability and
probably to tlie greater satisfaction of
the country. Mr. Robson had childishly threatened to Bay "good-bye" to
Westminster District did the electors
fail to send two good Government supporters with him to the House; as far
ns he was concerned he did not think
the country would Buffer much loss if
the Hon. Premier should speak the
purling words. Dr. Boddington concluded by asking the electors to vote
only for the Independent candidates:
those pledged/to a new policy and a new
party. The speech was received with
the greatest enthusiasm, and so telling
wero the doctor's remarks that what
was at the first supposed to be a Government meeting, turned out to be a
Government defeat, which oven the
candidates on that ticket were obliged
to acknowledge.
CORRESPONDENCE.
PUBLIC   HOMY,
EJpivoB  Columbian—Sir:   Will you
nnd again; stakes havo been driven
here and there about election time, but
with no results; and, consequently, the
people are dissatisfied and anxious for a
change, which, be it what it may, the
settlers argue, cannot place them in a
orse position than they are in at pres-
ut. The feeling certainly is against
the present administration, and the settlers say they are not to be humbugged
any longer by empty promises.
liUUTON PJtAlllIK.
Leaving Agassis at 11.30 a.m., the
candidates proceeded by rail to Burton
Prairie, and held their meeting in the
school house. Twenty-five settlers
turned up and Mr. R. Burton was elected to the chair, aud Mr. W. Butt was
appointed secretary. The chairman
filled the position with credit to himself and tlie meeting. Several Indies
were present and seemed to enjoy the
meeting very much. The candidates
delivered their addresses in turn and
wero all given a patient hearing. This
District is supposed to be a straight
Government stronghold, but such does
not turn out to bo the case, It ifl true
He Hon. Mr. Robson has many Mends
i.i the vicinity of Burton Prairie, and
that he will poll a good voto there goes
without saying, but to say the Government party, as a whole, is Btrong is a
great mistake, which will be amply
proved on the 13th. From all your correspondent could learn the people aro
satisfied that only straight Independent
men should be sent to the House, and
tlio ballot paper on polling day will be
marked at Burton Prairie for two at
least of the Independent ticket, lu
conversation with several of the leading
sattlers it was learned that the people
of Burton Prairie are by no means in

THE I.IKS LAW—LETTER FROM Mil.
HltOWN.
Editoh Columbian—Sir — I gather
from an article in Truth this morning
that Mr. Cunningham and his friends
fancy they have made a telling point
out of the fact tbat I had not read the
so-called Lien Laws of the Province.
Neither have I read tho mass of legal
rubbish which, under the name of Lien
Luwb, the class legislators have attempted to palm off on the workingmen for
many years. I know that these laws
are not workable—mere samples of how
not to do it, in fact. The theory of these
legislators seems to be that advanced
by Mr. Cunningham at his meeting on
May 27th, "tbat workingmen did not
comprehend" what they wanted in this
matter.
1 have, however, read the Ontario
Lien Act, which many workmen who
do "comprehend what they want"
tell me is u good model. And I have
also read a good deal of tolerably sound
literature bearing on the duties which
men owe to their neighbors, which
literature is probably a better guide in
such matters as that under discussion,
than the legal fossils from the study of
which Mr. Cunningham seems to have
derived so little advantage.
Let me remind your readers of the
fact that at the meeting on Tuesday I
made a statement nf what appeared to
the latter gentleman was consecrate
Bishop of MelitopoliB.
After visiting the various tribes of Indians in the interior of the Province.
the ever watchful clergyman established
the William's Lake mission in 1800, nnd
the Stuarts Lake mission in 1868. Called
to the Holy See to take part in the Vatican Council in 1860, he returned, in
spite of his bad health, to continue his
noble work among the Indians of this
Province, and in 1874 he founded the
mission nt Kootenay. Recalled to Rome
in 1887 to attend another council, he returned with his health completely shattered, never again to take au active part
in the government of the Vicarate;
but on October 7th of last year he celebrated tho silver jubilee of his consecration as bishop. His Holiness Pope
Leo XIII sent the deceased prelate his
apostolical benediction during the crista

INFORMATION   WANTED.
Editor Columbian—Sir: Would your
classical editor kindly inform your readers whether Eudamidas referred to by
" Juvenis" in your issue of Muy 31st
was a brother of Ajax. the celeorated
Grecian hero, or son of Aliens, father of
the lesser Ajax. Although "Juvenis"
implies by his communication that his
Eudamidat was a noted personage, the
author of the Iliad seems to have known
nothing of him. 7>,

The other day Dan. McKeller and
Baird took to saddle and went out to
where construction work is progressing
on the railroad between here and New
Westminster. Thoy found 300 men at
work. The grade Is finished to within
four miles of Blaine, and the slashers
are now camped a mile and a half
north of Blaine, and working rapidly
this wny. The graders are blowing
stumps dear over the tops of the surrounding forest. It is a strange coincidence that both ships loaded with iron
for tho railroad north from Blaine have
put into the Falkland islands, off the
east coast of Patagonia for repairs.
They are expected to arrive in good
season howevor.—Blaine Journal,
gentleman had stated that he supported
the general policy of the Government,
but opposed it in the Redistribution
Bill, its luud policy and in several other
little matters. Mr. Punch asked Capt.
Thompson to explain what portion of
the Government policy he really supported when he was opposed to so many
of tlie main features. This was rather
a puzzle, and Capt. Thompson got out of
it liy a most evasive reply to the effect
that he "supported that part which refers to the advancement of the Mainland generally, aud that part in particular lead by Hon, John Robson." As
might be expected thiB naive reply
caused a storm of laughter, during
which the Bpeaker stepped from the
platform and resumed his seat. One
peculiar feature of this meeting waB
that each ono of the candidates pledged
himself to vote the Government out of
power on the first possible occasion.
Even Mr. Henderson and Mr. Kirkland
and Capt. Thompson promised to do
this if the Government failed just once
in the quality of the measures laid before the House. From this it is inferred that the Government followers are
hold by a very light leash indeed, nnd
which is very liable to bo snapped
asunder on the slightest pretext.
After passing a vote of thanks to Mr.
Burton, the chairman, for the able manner in which he had performed his
duties, the candidates, bade an affecting
farewell to the electors nnd took up the
line of inarch on foot, via C. P. R., for
the Mission. The column arrived in
great disorder and it was thought for a
time that a few of the candidates had
beon captured by the enemy and taken
away to some dark dungeon cell; but
these fears happily proved unfounded,
for when the roll waB called at tho supper table the stragglers had all arrived
and the ranks were found to be intact
and unharmed.
THK MISSION MKKTINU.
At 7 o'clock the meeting wns held in
the school house, nud was presided over
by Dr. Boddington. The candidates
went over their platform one by one:
r II promised tho same benefits, all agreed
to the same principles, and really left
the electors nothing to choose from iu
t!ie way of platforms, making it only a
choice of candidates ou their personal
Merits. Mr. Henderson aunportcd the
Government because he had been Bent
twice to Victoria for money for Chilli-
vaek and each time went home with
1500 in his pocket. He considered any Government bo liberal
and munificent as this should be
eapported by the entire country. He
riso pointed out tho wonderful fact that
tho Government could borrow money
r.t fair interest, and he thought that
should not bo lost sight of. Mr. Kitchen opposed tho Government ou open
ground, denying the liberality of its
(.eneral policy, und pointing out the
many instances of unfairness it had exhibited in dealing with Westminster
district, the richest, largest nnd most
]>opulous in the Province. His remarks
were well received. Mr. Punch and Mr,
Sword laid down their straight Independent platform and promised a faithful service in the interests of the constituency. Capt, Thompson, Mr. Herring, Mr. Sinclair and Mr. Kirkland also
spoke, and it was a hard matter to de-
cldo who was the most popular candidate.
At the conclusion of the speaking.
Dr. Boddington took the platform ana
mnde the speech of the evening. Ho
said that if thu candidates wero only
able to do all they had promised the
whole eight of them should be elected
[laughter), He thought the whole problem resolved itself into the question of
the Government's trustworthiness. Wu
all knew what the Government had
done in the past, and the problem now ie: "If the Government
is sent back to powor with the
same stong following, and the same
cabinet retained, what guarantee would
think that statement was received with approval by the audience.
This would appear to show that I have
profited rather more by my study of the
subject than Mr. Cunningham has by a
brain-sweating which has only led him
to the conclusion "that workingmen
don't comprehend what they want."

THE DISTRICT  ELECTION.
Editor Columbian—Sir: An we have
many new coiners amongst ua who have
no knowledge of the peculiarities of Mr,
Robson, it will bo advisable to recall
some facts which will be quite familiar
to many of your readers. A bill known
as the Settlement Bill was passed in the
Local Legislature some six or seven
years ugo. It was the embodiment of
im agreement effected by the Local Government, of which Mr. Robson was one
of the Ministers. It was, according to the
statements of Mr. Robson and his colleagues, intended to smooth away all
tlie difficulties which existed between
this Province and the Dominion Government. One of the real grievances of
which this Province had to complain
was the great loss to our people in consequence of the non-fulfilment by the
Dominion Government, of the agreement
to construct a railway.. As you may
probably remember, the peoplo of the
Mainland were the only sufferers, because the suspense and almost paralysis
to business created by the uncertainty
as to the probable line to be chosen,
caused much suffering nud. in many
cases great loss. The Island, i.e. Victoria, used every effort to have the line
carried by. way of Bute Inlet, which
would have completely cut off all the
centres of population on the Mainland
from participation in its benefits. After
much discussion tho Government at
Ottawa agreed to pay to the Province of
British Columbia the sum of seven
hundred aud fifty thousand dollars in
satifiiction of all claims to the date of
the Settlement Bill, nnd of course at
least one half of this Bum belonged of
right to the Mainland. Hon. Mr.
Robson is never ceasing in his
assertions na to his indefatigable efforts
ou behalf of the constituents: did he
secure the proper apportionment of the
$750,000? Not at all. The whole sum
was coolly appropriated by the Local
Government towards tho construction
of the Island Railway, with which the
Mainland had not the remotest concern.
Some well founded protest, were made
by Mainland members against such an
unjust disposition of the money, but although their claims wero admitted they
wore told that the Government—as a
solatium—would set aside the proceeds
from tho sale of the Esquimalt Graving
Dock—about two hundred and forty
thousand dollars—which was to be given
to the Mainland. Mr. Robson, of course,
saw that this money was paid. Not at
all, After n long poriod nt anxious expectation, some Mainland member enquired about tho $240,000, when he was
told that It had gone into the general
revenue 1 Mr. Robson—at the last election—told the people of this district at
several meetings, tuat a largo sum was
undoubtedly due to the Mainland from
the Dock money, nnd he wns going to see
that it was distributed, the largest sums
to go to tho good communities that
elected him and bis supporters; but not
a cent haa ever been received above
what the several municipalities were
entitled to, from tbe ordinary appropriations. From this the electors will see
that Mr. Robson's promises aro liko the
proverbial nio crust, and it Is time
that men should be elected who will
go down to the Legislature pledged to
look after this money. It would be a
valuable help towards tho construction
"of a traffic bridge across the Fraser, if it
could bo even temporarily used in that
way; at any rate it must be secured for

AIDING THE DISTRESSED.
On account of the .small scale
grasshopper plague in the Nicola District Inst year, the Provincial Government appropriated, nt the last session of
the House, the sum of $1,800 to aid the
distressed Bottlers to'buy seed grain for
their Jields this year. The evil minded
Opposition, of course, took a cynical
view of this charitable proceeding, and
insinuated that the proximity of the
general elections had more than a little
to do with the Government's paternal-
neBB. On the face of things, it would
appear that the Government's intern
i tions were beneficent in the matter;
aud if real distress did exist, und worthy
cases hnd been sought ont and supplied
with seed grain (not money), nctiording
to their needs and the fund at the die-
posal of the Government, there would
have been no excuse for the most rabid
opponent of the Government to find
fault.
But, - aB the appropriation has
been administered, a most unmis
takable and regrettable scandal has
been given rise to, which Is current
throughout the whole upper country at
least. Of this we have beeu informed
verbally by men of the most unquestioned integrity and non-political in
their occupations and predilections. To
this evidence of tho scandal, and also
as proving that there arc too good
grounds for its existence, we quote, by
permission, from a private letter received from n prominent Westminster
gentleman now in the interior, and who
has recently been through the Nicola
country. The correspondent in question says:
"I returned last night from the Nicola
valley, and while there I learned something about the distribution of the Government grant to the poor farmers of
Nicola Valley that ought to bo generally
known. In the first place, there were
only three, some think four, who ought
to have received anything, nnd they
were crippled by the grasshopper plague,
but outside of these three there was not
one who could, if they had had half the
self-respect of somo of the Siwashes,
take a cent from the Government. I
will give you a list of such as I can remember who accepted aid that have disgraced themselves by ao doing [wo put
dashes instead of the names given-
En. ]: Mr.  received $150; he-is
worth from $12,000 to $15,000. Messrs,
 A ,$200, and Mr.  is reported as worth $30,000.   Mr.	
$150, worth $10,000. And Una to enable
him to buy seed grain, but he had ample
grain in hia barn for seed; besides he
haa within a fortnight sold considerable.
There nre other cases quite as inconsiderate, for instance, Mr. , who
has money nt interest aud is recognized
as a man of means, received $25 to compensate him for damage done by the
grasshoppers to a little patch in front of
his house.   Comment is unnecessary."
The testimony of tho abovo letter is
too circumstantial to be doubted, taken
together with other trustworthy evidence bearing upon the same subject.
Certainly tho transactions described do
pot reflect credit upon either the Gov
eminent or tho undeserving recipients
of Government bounty, to put it mildly.
If no corrupt motives are, charitably,
attributed, gross negligence and.utter
lack of discrimination in administering
tho appropriation in nid of the distressed
farmers of Nicola must be laid at the
door of the Government. According to
all the light which is being thrown upon
thematter, the alleged distress in Nicola,
caused by tho locusts last year, has been
greatly exaggerated by some one.
PRINCE BISMARCK  AT HOME.
The world still rotates although the
"active political lifo of one of the great-
" est men that ever directed affairs of
" state" has come to an end apparently.
Thus wo have once moro learned the
solemn truth that "no man is necessary." One morning civilization awoke
to Hnd tho "iron chancellor" gone, und
for a moment all Europe paused breathless, almost expecting the heavens to
fall whilst oven in tho new world expectant curiosity watched fur new devol-
opmets of a startling nature in tho making of history. Things went on much
aB usual, men toiled, women wept, nnd
still pursued the race for existence; but
although statesmen predicted all kinds
of complications and calamities as a
consequence of the great man's displacement,
"Whatgnvc rise to no little surprise,
No one seemed ono penny tho womb,"
The fact is, Bismarck had filled bis
part in tho world's comedy, and iu a
very short timo will excite much the
same kind of interest in men's minds as
Ciesar, Alexander, Cromwell or George
Washington, a vivid and keen interest
without doubt,, but of au academic
order.
It has been so much the custom to
think only of Bismarck as the man of
blood and iron, the moulder of a nation,
that the moro attractive sides of his Individuality have been cast in the shade.
He is a student, and is so completely a
master of English literature as to be
perfectly acquainted with the works of
our great poets, and almost equally at
homo in obscure and forgotten works of
second rate writers. On the spur of the
moment he has been known to quote
some twonty Hues of Latin Hookh. He
is known as being a good landlord, taking an intelligent interest in nil agricultural pursuits, a passionate sportsman
and a splendid horseman. A first rate
shot, he can with a pistol decapitate
ducks as they swim on his ponds at
Kniephof. His powers of endurance
are remarkable. After the battle of Sedan he was in the saddle from six in the
morning until midnight.
Senti mental Ism Is a strong factor iu
his character. "I took a boat on the
" Rhine," ho wrote to his wife, " and
" then swam in the moonlight to the Rat
'' Towor. There is something strangely
" dreamy to lie on tho waters on a still
' night, with moon and stars above, and
' on either hand the wood capped motm-
' tains." Who could imagine such
words horn the "Raw Head" of the
French nursery.. The fact is he .combines the clear, cool, calculating craft of
Mephistophelei with the passionate and
sentimental heart of Marguerite. A
strong belief in Christianity, not one
creed or another, runs through his life.
He said " a certain measure of positive
" Christianity is necessary to man in
" order to prevent him becoming dan-
" gerous to society." His loyalty partook of tlie old cavalier type, " for
" God and the King." "By nature I
"am disposed to be a Republican; I
" derive my sense of duty from God, and
" that is why I am a Royalist. Sever
" my connection with God, and I am
" the man to pack up my trunks to-
" morrow and be off to Varzin to reap
" my oats." "Christianlty/'heheld, "i
" not the creed of court chaplains.1
Quakerism seems to be the basis of his
character, paradoxical aa it appears to
speak of htm as being allied in any way
to tbe teachings of Fox.
Bismarck is not an orator as eloquence
goes, but if oratory is tested by the
faculty to influence, then he is the most
eloquent man in Europe. Now and then
he rises into the realm of rhetoric.
What a striking phrase was that about
the God of battles shaking the iron dice
of destiny from His hands!
His private life has ever been most
singularly happy. He wos his mother's
boy, and his relations with his only
Bister were almost idyllic. His wife is
of the true German pattern, simple,
homely aud intelligent. She wears her
plain old-fnshioned black bonnet, and
amid the cares of state "wishes he was
" back among the turnips."
How different is all this from the craft
of diplomacy which haB come to be
synonymous with the name of Bismarck,
and yet how natural and manly it all Ib.
He Is back among his turnips and his
oats now, for which he so often longed
when he had kingdoms to play with
and it is to be supposed that the long
life of patriotic statesmanship will close
amid the peaceful surroundings of the
country gentleman's career. His bucolic tastes, his love of literature and delight in home, shed a new light on the
man of blood and iron. After all there
is a deal of humanity in man.

THE DAILY COLUMBIAN
THURSDAY EVENING. JUNE 5. 11)90.
FORT LANGLEY ITEHS.
\From Our Own Correspondent.]
Langley, June 2.—AVe read your exhaustive account of our political meeting here last  week  with gratification.
Naught exaggerated, and naught set
down in malice. A high degree of excitement still prevails, and our projected gathering in a few days to make a
choice of three members for Westminster District out of the large number of
aspirants for political honors, from
which we havo to make a selection, bids
fair to prove of unusual interest, in the
present troubled state of the electoral
atmosphere.
As to the Hon. John Robson, there
would have been, little likelihood of
opposition to bis re-election but for tho
redistribution measure of hist session
and the apparently uncertain action of
himself and colleagues in the case of
the Mainland representation. You
have, bowever discussed iu Tin; Columbian this point so ably that your readers
are well informed us to what are the
real grounds upon which opposition to
the re-election of those who drugged the
Island voters with their electoral sops,
should be grounded.
There was u new English church consecrated on the Prairie liero vestorday,
Trinity Sunday, by Bishop Sillitoe, who,
with his chaplain, opened the sacred
edifice for Christian worship. Tlie
divine service would have been much
more largely attended, but for the very
unpropitioiiB. weather. The rain, however, was so heavy and persistent that
many who purposed joining in the holy
ordinance were reluctantly unable to be
present, and owing to the same hindrance, a service in tho evening which
was to bo conducted by the Bishop In
the school houso here, could not be fully
attended by the local congregation.
Notwithstanding the continuous downpour the river ntilT gradually goes down,
and the water on the prairie lauds is
fast subsiding.
You may look out for an increase in
the retail price of meat in the Royal
City, if what is reported here be authentic, namely, that your butchers have
formed what might be called a "ring,"
and tvill not purchase stock from here
coming by steamer, unless through one
party, who will not buy except at a
price fixed by himself. He will then
sell to the victuallers. If true, they
ought to be looked to without delay.
One party had four calves here on Saturday, in fair condition, which had to
be brought home again from New Westminster, as he could not dispose of
them except through this particular
agent, at least so he stated.

Another Hcnllng Boat.
Capt. J. G. Cox, who returned last
evening from the Sound, succeeded,
while in Port Townsend, iu negotiating
the purchase of another very creditable
addition to the Victoria scaling fleet in
the shape of the trim littlo 55 ton schooner Mischief, four years old, now lying at
Port Townsend. It is expected that the
Mischief's transfer to Victoria owners
will bo completed this week. Tho V.
S. revenue cutter Boar was still in Seattle when Cajit. Cox left,awaitingordei'B.
Her destination is as much a matter of
conjecture in the Sound city as it in in
this city.—Colonist of Tuesday.
Burned to   Death.
j'Little four-year-old Nellie Currie,
wtioie parents live on Nelson street,
was burned to death yesterday afternoon
by her clothes catching fire from a burning root on a vacant lot near where her
parents' house is situated. The little
child vta% out playing with her elder
sister at tho time. When the dress
caught on fire the flames spread rapidly,
completely enveloping her und fright fining her sister, who ran crying tor her
mother. The mother hurried to the
child's rescue, and found that she had
fallen over on her face and was lying
lifeless on the ground. The arms, hands
and face of the little thing were terribly
burned, and it is supposed that when
it fell it lay in such a way that it was
suffocated.—Sunday's Advertiser,
Flffhthiff a Punt■■(•.'•
A few days ago, says the Colonist, as
James Knight, of Shelter Point, near
Nanaimo, was working in the woods
close to his own house and barn, he
heard a series of squeals from a litter of
little pigs which were running about the
garden. Going in the direction of the
sounds he discovered a panther of very
large proportions carrying oil* one of his
porkers. Running to the house, with
all possible speed, lie secured his gun,
his dog in tho meantime chasing the
marauder which took to the trees.
Taking aim at the beast, whoso glistening eyes shone through the foliage, aud
whose growls made it impossible to mistake his whereabouts, ho brought the
animal down, preventing him making a
dying charge by a well directed shot
into his brain. This brute, and several
others of his kind, with the assistance
of the bears in the neighborhood, have
latterly made considerable havoc among
the smaller domesticated animals, uud
it Ib proposed, ere long, to organize a
shooting party with the object ot exterminating them,
Mr. Thos. Keith, the newly elected
member for Nanaimo City, is a native of
Belfast, Ireland, abont 38 years old.
He has been in Canada nearly four
years, and lias resided both in Montreal
and Vancouver. Ho has strong views
on the labor question, ond thinks "that
a more progressive policy is needed for
the development ot British Columbia's
unbounded resource.!." His practically
trained mind and good common sense
views on the present requirements of
this country will, when he gets into
Parliament, make him a formidable opponent of old fogey ism.—Times.

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
New Westminster City.
GENTLEMEN:—In response to a requisition,
numerously signed, which has been presented to
me, I beg to offer myself aB representative of
this City in tho Provincial Legislature.
1 frankly confess that, aside from the great
question ol tho Just distribution of legislative
power, 1 would scarcely caro to bo a candidate.
If you do mc the honor to elect me I shall make
that question my tlrst consideration at all times,
and In order to do this itis essential that 1
keen quite free from any entangling alliances
with cither Government or Opposition.  But to
the people and the advocacy of the rights of the
people, in this matter and In all others, I can
rally and freely pledge myself; and with those,
be they on what side of tho House they may,
who arc animated by a similar spirit, 1 will work
cordially.
The present crisis demands special treatment.
We of tne Lower Mainland aro denied our Just
share of legislative power, and so long as that Is
the ease our true policy, in my opinion—nay,
*"* policy which our own sol f-rospcet compels ub
. ..Jopt—Ib to return no man to tho Legislature
who will not make the righting of that wrong
his first business. It may safely bo assumed
that thoso who shall he found willing to do
right in this matter, wil be the most likely lo do
Ight in others also,
Notwithstanding the utmost devotion to this
ilrst question, your representative wlll have to
deal with many oilier matters, and perhaps It
will In- sufllelent now to say on this point thnt I
believe there is room for a good deal of work before tho administration of public affairs can
■lniiu to be what lt should l>c—government by
ho people/or tho people. I should cnruostlyeii
deavor to do my share of that work,
I believe I mny safely assume that you need
ud assurance of my deep and abiding interest In
everything that makes for tho prosperity of New
Westminster Cll)-.

Very truly yours,

GENTLEMEN :-As it la difficult to arrange to
see each individual elector beforo election day,
I wish to put beforo you the platform on which
I stand whilst seeking your support.
Up to tbo Introduction of the Constitution
Amendment Aet, I should havo supported tho
present Government, but 1 now Btand indt-
pendonl of all parties on that measure, pledged
to obtain a fair and Just Redistribution Act
immediately nfter the publication of the census
returns; such act to bo based as nearly ns lras-
sible upon population, the abolition of the balance of power and the division of districts Into
ono member constituencies. Outside this pledge
I claim tho privilege of being allowed to support
anv legislation-of a just and beneficial nature
which may bo introduced by tho Government.
I wlll endeavor to Impress upon tbe Government tho necessity of tho utmost liberality In
the expenditure tor the opening up of all agricultural districts and oven, It necessary, to borrow money for this purpose.
The conservation of all public lands for actual
settlement, ond the abolition of all sales of land
In largo areas, wlll be ono of tho chief objects I
shall hold In view, and to also assist In tho
greatest amount of land being brought Into cultivation. I would advoeato the Wild Land Tax
being raised to 25 cents per acre.
It wlll also bo my endeavor to Impress upon
the Government tho absolute necessity of taking
steps to assist In the reclamation of the large
area of land subject to overflow by the Frasor,
so us tn render it ull lit for cultivation, feeling
sure thnt any money spent in that direction
will hon good Investment, as the lands will be
greatly enhanced In valuo for assessment.
From tha abovo you will seo I stand at a supporter of tho Government, except on one measure, and feel sure that you will soo that at I
nm n resident farmer in the district onr Interests are Identical, nnd I hopo to be able to
materially ndvnnco tho Interests of the district

It is astonishing how very few vacant
houses there are in the city at the present lime, and very few know of this fact
until they try to rent one. It is well
known that many families are obliged
to live in the various hotels until there
is nn opportunity to obtain a house and
indeed several men nre obliged to keep
their families in Vancouver for the very
reason that they are unable to get a
house in the city, even though there are
a very large large number building in
various directions. The real estate men
say that thoy are continually receiving
applications for bouses, and one agent
declares that last month he received at
least fifty such applications. This is a
very prosperous state of things, and the
outlay of a few thousands of dollars in
this direction would result in a handsome interest on the amount invested.

entertainment commenced with songs,
choruses, readings and recitations, all of
which were well received and enthusiastically applauded. After these exercises were performed Mr. Fisher was
presented with a gold-headed ebony
cane, accompanied by an appropriate
address to which Mr. Fisher replied in
feeling terms. Refreshments, which
were heartily partaken of by all present,
were served by the ladies of the church,
and at 10:.'-() o'clock the audience dispersed well pleased with the evening's
entertainment.   •

Albert  Crescent.
Some time ago work was commenced
in the Crescent with a great deal of
vigor, and every one thought that pretty
soon we should have a beautiful terraced
slope smiling in the sun, etc. But after
the ripping up of the sundry stumps and
tiie shattering of the many great rocks
on the ground, a cessation of labor waB
taken, and it seems likely to bo protracted indefinitely. This year's Council have done so much good substantial
work, that no one feels like grumbling
at them for neglecting one small place.
But this Crescent, if finished and laid
out as was originally intended, and
touched off with a tasty little Turkish
kiosk band Btand, wherein the city
Orphean club could charm the promeii-
aders once a week, why, Westminster
would be possessed of a real thing of
beauty and a joy for at least several
years. Tho city haB not enough of these
attractive spots.

Poetry by the  Yitnl.
In the issue of the Sitka Alaskan for
April 26, just to hand, there are nine
and n half columns of "poetry." The
toughness of tho man who wrote it
must have been phenomenal, and only
to be equalled by that of him who reads
it through. Tbe stuff is positively the
most awful ever printed, and the following extract gives a good example of tho
scholarly attainments of the poet:
"Sure never did an artist conceive ii
darker scene,
Xnt even Gustavo Dorc in his "Wnurterliig
Jew," I ween."
'Hie people of Sitka are  notoriously
healthy or this kind of thing would immensely increase the mortuary statistics
of that using town.    The exertions
made by the poet in several parts of the
poem to get a rhyme are truly heartrending.   It would be a Bweet and joyful thing, after reading this "pome,    to
roll over nnd die without a groan.

A Smart Veuel.
Mr. Wheatley Bovill, of this city, uud
Mr. J. Turner, late first officer of the
steamer Irving, are having a twenty-ton
sloop built by Messrs. McPhee Bros., at
their ship yard on the North Arm.
Messrs Bovill A Turner are going into
the trading business, and will make
periodical trips between this city and
Sitka, Alaska, taking up a cargo of gen
eral goods such as the Indians and settlers up the coast require, and bringing
back pelts, furs and skins and other
products of the north. The sloop which
they are having built will be 45 feet in
length, by 11 feet 0 inches beam and is
modelled after a plan of Mr. Bovill's. A
short distance abaft the mast the deck Ib
raised one foot, thus rendering skylights unnecessary. The boat will have
a depth of five feet and will carry a very
large centre-board, Her ribs are of 2x
2}_ inch oak, with natural knees, nnd
planked with native pine. She will be
finished inside with cedar. The deck
is to be narrow fir plank, edge grain.
Tho sloop will carry a vast spread of
canvas, consisting of mainsail, gaff topsail, fore-sail, forc-stay-sail and flying
jib. She will carry a polacca mast, thus
obviating top-mast and cross-trees; all
her spars will be of specially selected
native pine. Her decks will be nearly
flush, a low bulwark running completely
around tho boot. Messrs. McPhee Bros,
are making every effort to surpass themselves on this boat, and when finished
nnd ready for sea she will be undoubtedly tbe most beautiful, and likely the
fas test,craft in British Columbia waters.
The vessel will probably be launched on
the 10th itst.
The remains of the late Bishop D'Herbomez were lying in state all yesterday
in St. Louis College where a large number took the opportunity of looking
upon the face of him whom tbey loved
so well. The remains were removed
this morning to St. Charles' Indian
church whero several hundred Indians
attended tho services and an opportunity was given to gaze upon the
features of him who had done sc
much for their civilization. All marched past the casket with tearful eyes and
bowed heads. The remains were then
conveyed to St. Peter's Cathedral where
thoy will remain until to-morrow morning nt 0:110 a. in., when they will he
taken to St. Mary's Mission.
{Uefcm. Hon. Mr. Justice McCrciglit and Ills
Honor Judge Bole.)
Court resumed its business at 11:30
o'clock this morning, when the case of
Regina vs. Lackinitze was called.
Mr. Blake, for prisoner, asked for a
remand on account of the fact that Mr.
Beck, of Vancouver, had all the particulars of the case, that he would have been
ready, but it was thought that the Sun
bury case would come on.
His Worship said that it was a seriouB
inconvenience to the jurors and that he
would have to go on with tbe case at
once.
His Lordship then ordered the jury
to be called, which was impanelled as
follows: J. B. Curr, Alex. Anderson, A.
Murcbeson. H. Bruce, H. Hodge, J. W.
Miller, John Oliver, — Brown, C.
Hawley, J. Week, J. A. Green, J. H.
Burritt. Mr. Green was chosen foreman.
Mr. A. St. G. Hainersley, Crown
prosecutor, addressed the jury, giving
an outline of tbe history of the murder,
saying that as thero wero eye-witnesses
to tbe affair, there would be no difficulty in finding a verdict.
At this stage His Lordship dismissed
the jury for an hour, when Mr, Mills,
for the defence in tho Sunbury murder,
made an application to have the trial of
the prisoners, Sam, Jim, Annie and
Crazy Annie, postponed for six weeks or
until the next assizes, and read the nfti- {
davit of Stephen Spenser, of Alert Bay,
which was to the effect that the father
and mother of Sam could givo material
evidence in his behalf.
After considerable argument the case
was postponed until the 8th of July
next. The court, wos thou adjourned
until 1:15 p. in.
Court resumed again at 1:30 this afternoon when Rogina vs. Lackinitze, the
first case, was taken up.
W. B. Anderson, a Comox constable,
swore to tho arrest of the prisoners on
their way up north.
The afternoon was principally taken
up by the evidence of Billy, an Enclutnh
Indian who was one of a party which
left Vancouver on April 17th. Prisoner,
deceased, a woman, and witness were
the occupants of the canoe.
The Indians landed at Bowen Island,
tbey had beeu drinking all the way from
Vancouver. They had two barrels of whiskey on board und two bottles of tbo
same fluid. Anmut, the deceased, was
Bteering the canoe, when a row
between prisoner nml the woman
who waB with them took place.
Anmut got up to protect the
woman and prisoner struck him a fearful blow on the forehead with a paddle.
Annut sank down in tbe bottom of the
canoe covering his faco with both hands,
prisoner then struck him another blow,
killing him instantly. Prisoner, ou
landing, was chased and captured by
Louis, a white man, who handed him
over to the police.
The caso was proceeding as we went
to press.   i^_^^_1_-_
Heartless Bnrlinrlty.
Last Friday morning ten calves were
sent to tho City from some port up-river.
On arriving here tbe animals were
turned into the pens on tbo C. P. X.
dock, and there tbey remained until
Saturday night without a morsel of food
of any kind. Tbo wretched littlo brutes
bellowed as long as then-strength lasted,
and tbe noise they created kept everybody in the neighborhood awake all
night. To the superficial observer there
does not appear to be uny particular
cruelty in keeping tho animals nenrly
forty-eight hours without food or water
in a hot pen on which tbe sun heals
down most of the day. But to anyone
who takes the trouble to look into
the matter there is something
particularly devilish — that is tl.
only word that fits the case -
in compelling these poor little animals
to undergo the unspeakable agonies of
hunger and thirst for nearly two days;
and then hauling Ihem out as if they
were logs of wood or blocks of stone,
tying their feet together and piling them
one on top of the other in n cart to bc
driven to the slaughter bouse. Tliis
may seem incredible, but it is truo, too
true for the credit of the city; and those

TO THE ELEOTORS OF,
New Westminster Distriot
GENTLEMEN:—J bog to announce myself as
an Independent candidate for tllb legislative
Assembly at the coming election.
As most of you nro aware, I am an old resident
of the District, nnd largely interested in its
growth and prosperity.
1 am In favor of lho division of the District
into ridings, aud shall insist upon our having
our fair share of representation, according to
onr population nml resources, in the Legislature.
Abthis District contributes very largely to the
revenue. It is clearly entitled to large appropriations for public works, nud Niibstnnllal grants to
the various municipalities.
I am a strong advocate of a free trattle bridge
across the Fraser at Brownsville, and should
urge that the (iovcriiiucnt subsidise that work,
bridgo flcrosB the Pitt River.
I inn utterly opposed lo the Immigration of
Chinese, and tholr employment on public works
nf any character.
I am strongly in favor of borrowing tho money
nnd I should also press for the construction uf a

opening up roads along tho section lines.
I should advocate any reasonable assistance
to a railway from Hope down tho south side of
the Fraser, as sueh aline would give a vast impetus to the development of our Distriot. - ,
If you do me the honor to elect me I shall do
my best to advance our Interests in these nud
other mutters.
I am, Gentlemen,
Yours sincerely,

TO THE ELEOTORS OP
New Westminster Distriot
GENTLEMEN l-I offer myself as a candidate
to represent you in the Provincial Legislature,
on the platform suggested by tho Mninland Association, free from any pledge to either party,
I hold myself at liberty to give an independent support to any Government that may be
chosen ny tho people. As nn elector, 1 tnlnk
tho Distriot would make a mistake should tho
electors condone Inst session's Redistribution
Rill, by returning cither tho Hon. Mr. Robson,
or candidates hampered by pledges to support
his Government, ns representatives of this constituency.
Mr. Robson is standing for Cariboo ns well as
for Westminster District, so thero is no need to
fenr that tho Province will be deprived of his
services should tho majority of the electors
agree with me on this point.
I am in favor of dividing Westminster District
into ridings.
Any moiisurt's that appear to me to bc for tho
bcneilt of the Province would have my support,
and I think that some safo scheme might be devised by which the credit of tbo Province might
be lent for locnl Improvements.
Tho contract system ought to be moro strictly
carried ont.
I should also like to seo some modification of
tho municipal system, by which localities outside of municipalities might have more direct
control oftheexpenditures In their neighborhoods, so ns lo securo the most economical and
cillclent disposal of such funds and relieve tho
central Government from the invidious tasknf
deciding between dlflbrent clatms.

TO THE ELECTORS
New Westminster  District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view ol tlie near
approach of tlie election to fill the vacancy caused by tho death o.f our late
representative (the much-'respoctod D.
Chisholm) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before you
some of my views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in tlio
near future for consideration.
1 have been asked what 1 mean when
I announce myself as a Liberal-Conservative; I reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residenco of over 30 years in 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 1 claim i am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing lo the
fact that party lines are not defined, in
-British Columbia as they aro in the older
provinces, 1 consider that our representatives aro not in duty bound to give a
through-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, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as 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 ton certain extent, to
the Tariir, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture iu
the East, and many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbor's over the
line, and in many cases the articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of onr Fanning and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles are brought from the , States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; wo do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and are 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 have been a meat
famine; as it is we are now and have
been paying 25 cents per pound for mutton, winch is more than ordinary nior-
talslike to pay, and the same state of
atl'airs is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for the last eleven years
our stock raisers are little better prepared to meet hard winters than they
were before, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
X. P. are tbe manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question, I would advocate " Kceiproeilv''
iu many articles Which are at present iu* lite Turin' lists, as I think
it would be beneficial to both
countries, and Ihe working man would
not have to go down so deep into his
pockets to buy what he needs to cat 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 gel at the pocliu.i. of the
richer classes who can hotter afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness j
of the late Mr. Chisholm, he wusjuiahle t
to be in his place this session, and very
little during the previous one, so we of
this District have been  practically un- j
represented, and our local wants have !
not heen brought beforo the notice of
the House.    Had he (Mr.  Chisholm)
beeu iu his seat, I do not think the Postmaster-General would have been left so
much in the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail  facilities on  the
Lower Eraser as he seems to have beon
when he proposed to cut oil' the  mail
subsidy from that Important route, and
there i^re other places in  the District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider Bhould receive  that  genlle-
nmn's earliest attention.
1 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. AI pies-
cut I think it is the largest constituency
iu the Dominion', extending over 1500 I
miles of territory, and when the census
returns ar<. in 1 think (he necessary I
uuiiibei of population will be found to '
i_.uj_ntu.cU eh additional representation, \
The protection of lb.-1 iver hanks at
iJJ.liHwark/Stiiimr., Bui ton's Prairie and
olhtr placei-. iioiild receive nr, (Ornost
attention, also the wurksfov improving
the channel at the Sandheals, in view
of the expected increase in our shipping
interests.
I consider the Province should have,
control over all railway charters and i
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such!
great importance to this Dislrict in par- !
ticular, 1 feet should receive more  than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from the mouth
of the Serpentine to Eraser Kiver, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from the Eraser I.iver to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to me.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, aud encouraged judiciously,
.Just ut present it Is coming here fast
enough; 1 would not like to see a largo
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed aud go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
There are many other matters I Bhould
like to touch upon, but it would make
this address too long. I hope to see as
many as possible before the election,
when 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 duo notice of time and place of meetings.
During my long residenco in the Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters beforo tlie notice of the
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I have tho honor to be olectcd
I assure you I shall watch over the interests of this District faithfully and to
the best of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go as'a true British Columbian and lo do my duty as such.
Youra faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.

TO THE ELECTORS
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—As I have already announced,
I beg to offer myself IIS fl candidate for Ihe seat iu
the Commons made vneant by tlie death of our
late member, and I come before you as a supporter of the Government of Sir John Macdonald, reserving to mysell, of course, the right lo
act Independently should the action of tho Government in any inatler seem prcjudical tu our
Interests,
I would strongly urge Immediate attention to
(lie Improvement of tiie River where roijuired.
for the protection of the rich agricultural lands
of Ibe District, and If elected, 1  shall at once
proceed to Ottawa and leave uo slime unturned
lo secure the immediato   appointment of a
competent engineer wilti a view lo Ihe prompt
undertaking of Hi Is most Important work.
j    As you are aware, the duly ou certain kinds
I of mining machinery im, been remitted in tliis
I Province ns a special  e.niccssiou lo British Columbia on account of Ibe special conditions ob-
| lulning here.   I would strongly urge Ibe further
| application of this principle oi special tariff ar-
■ ruiigomeuts. so as lo relieve con.siiniers of goods
. which musl bo Imported, ivliitu preserving the
protection  of our agricultural  and oilier  In
terosls.
The land laws of the Dominion, having beeu
fruined without olostj consideration  of our requirements, are In many points unsuitable, fur
example In tlie  conditions,'as  lo  clearing.   I
would endeavor to secure immediate   reform in
Ibis Important mutter.
i    Subsidies having boen uniuled lo rallwavs in
. tlio various Provinces of the iMninlou.l should
j urgently proem ibe clahnsto similar assistance
[ of railways within our own Province.
i    Should tlio City of New Westmtnsterdecide to
build a luidec across the  Eraser, 1 should use
my best endeavors to obtain a substantial sub-
; sidy for Ihe work, urging that an undertaking
! of this chnrncler should rank with canals and
i railways as one entitled to national iild.
Tlio next census wlll undoubtedly show such
i an increase lu the wealth and population of this
: Dislrict as will constitute an undeniable claim
; to increased ivpivenlniinn in Hie Commons.
That claim, if elected, 1 .sliall support to the ut-
! moot of my ability.
!    Although, with the growth of the District,
j Ihe mail service has been  Imprnved and extended, It still lags far behind onr requirements.
1 1 should give special attention to this partof
your representative'), work,   feeling thai  it is
j one which is of vital luiporlaiice.
I    1 should urge the enactment of such fishery
I regulations, especially In Ibcissuinir of licences,
as would, without nnv Injustice lo the numerics, the Importance of which to the prosperity of
the Dislrlel all must recognise,  fully  proieel
1 the free fishermen, and oiieminKo the settle-
: ment amongst  ns of the grealesi  possible number oftllftt Industrious and hardy class of men.
All enactments anil regulations lor the protection of white labor would receive my hearty
Continued work towards tbe Imjiroveinoiit of
the harbors o[ New Westminster and Vancouver, and the ohleiont lighting and buoying of
the snnie, is a mailer which would have mv
closest atlentiioi al all times.
In a word, 1 should constantly urge upon the
(lovernment the wisdom of a liberal potieylii
public works fn ibis District, lho vast resources
of which make it certain thai such a poliev
would be amply jus([licil by results.
Trusting to have the opportunity-of seeing
every elector before polling day,
I am, Heiitlemen,
Very sincerely yours,
dwiiiylllc GORDON E. CORBODLD.
