Tlio Headsman of Greece*
New York, June 10.—A Times special
from Athens, Greece, says: "Wanted
au Executioner" has ever since the year
1884 been the pathetic cry of tho judicial
authorities. No subject of King George
has hitherto been found willing to come
forward to perform the laat dread behests of tho law. Meanwhile tlie criminals condemned to death have been
having a high time of it. A headsman
has at length been gone to, a foreign
person, one Roukis, who is himself a
convicted assassin, but who has signified
hts readiness to save his own neck by
decapitating a number of other scoundrels whose criminality is aa great aa h is
own. Koukis has been placed on board
a man-of-war which will take a summer
trip around the Greek coast, landing
where occasion may require and proceeding to towns where murderers are
awaiting their doom. There are just
eleven of these miscreants to be dealt
with.        _>i	
4<jipcr EgVpt Iu Sore  Distress.
London, Juno 10.—Further advices
havo just been received of the sufferiilgH
of the inhabitants of Upper Egypt owing
to the failure of the crops. Cannibalism has taken place and everything
moving has been eaten; dogs, cats, rats,
donkeys, snakes, lizards, old bones and
leather are eagerly devoured, and tlie
stronger tako by force from the weaker.
Subscriptions have atarted which have
enabled the relief committee to feed
about three thousand of the worst cases
and start a mat hospital for the sick.
This is at Sunkim. At Toakar starvation is still worse. Between fifty and
one hundred and sometimes more of the
inhabitants die daily. At Kaasala tho
situation is worse than this; whole
families . being found - dead in their
houses. AtGallabat and Gedurit the
population has nearly ceased to exist.
Awful    Hydrophobia.
New Yohk, June 10.—For six houra
Edmund Corriveau, 32 years of age, lay
iu his isolated cell at Bcllevuc hospital
yesterday, snapping and snorting and
going through all the terrible paroxysms
of hydrophobia. At noon no one dared
go near him and at 2 :!>0 o'clock in the
afternoon he died from sheer exhaustion. Corriveau waa bitten recently by
a black and tan terrier.

A Brave Newspaper Writer Tells John
li. Sullivan What He Thinks
About Him.
A Courageous   Speech,
Washinoton, June 10.—A lively little
scene occurred at Chamberlain's last
night. John RuBsell Young, Senator
Squires, Congressman Grain, Isaac A.
Bromley, the veteran newspaper man,
and Phil Thompson, of Kentucky, were
at the Buffet, when in atalked John L.
Sullivan, accompanied by "Jack" Bar-
nett. Sullivan had been drinking, but
waa not quarrelsome. He knew John
Russell Young, and nt once walked up
to him and his party. The two shook
hands and John L. at once ordered five
Bots," us he called it. Young then
introduced him to Senator Squires and
was about to present him to Bromley,
when the latter drew himself up ana
turned away. "Ain't you going to
shake hands?" thundered Sullivan.
"No, sir," responded Bromley, "lam
not." " Why, what'a the matter with
me?" said Sullivan, jamming his hat on
the back of hia head. "Nothing; you
are simply a bully, and I don't desire
the acquaintance of bullies." By this
time everybody was feelinguncomfort-
able and Bromley waa as 'white aB a
sheet. It waa feared that Sullivan would
behave violently, but he did not. He
aimply gave Young a gruff good-day and
muttering something about not staying
where he was not wanted, turned away,
leaving the wine he had ordered untouched.    	
Two Great  Hon Is.
Buchabkbt, June 10.—A romantic
double suicide is just now the subject of
conversation here, and on account of
the prominence of the participants it
has created considerable excitement.
Helene Neriavia, a daughter of a court
minister, waB married to Capt. Malda-
vin, a physician, not long ugo, but from
whom Bhe shortly afterwards obtained a
divorce, and later waB engaged to a Cap*
tain Goestarch witli whom ahe bad been
deeply in love for many yeara. The
consent of the king to the marriage was
obtained and everything was in readiness for the ceremony when, upon the
very eve of the wedding, Helene discovered that blood relationship existed
between herself and her intended husband. Iu a moment of delirium caused
by her excessive grief at this discovery,
she seized a pistol and shot herself
through the heart. Goestarch . was
driven almost mad at Helene's death,
and for five days he prayed ceaselessly
beside her body and at her tomb. Then
he was not Been for two days, and Ids
friends becoming alarmed, forced the
door of hia room and found him sitting
in a chair, dead. One hand held a
volume of Heine's poems, marked by
hiB dead love and on tne open page lay
a bunch of edelweiss; hia other
hand clutched a gown that had belonged
to Helene and which he had thickly
strewn with rose leaves. ,
morning. When leaving the steamer on
iier arrival, the passengers tendered
Captain Young their compliments on
his and hia men's behavior. The conduct of the cabin passengers during the
trying period between the striking of the
steamer on the rock and the time when
it became certain that no immediate
danger existed waB admirable. Most of
them calmly dressed themselves before
coming.on deck to learn their fate. The
fog winch prevailed at tho time of the
accident was so dense that lights could
not be seen the length of the vessel.
The steamship ran so close up to the
rock that from her bow it waa possible
to touch it, and a number of passengers
saw people looking over the rock from
Fastnet light house at them. One passenger asserts that ho plucked from n
crevice of the rock a flower that was
growing there. In the steerage there
waB great excitement among women pas-
sengers when the vessel struck and very
few of tbe passengers were aware of the
fact that water had rushed into the fore-
peak until the steamer arrived here.
Will Make them Ridiculous.
San Fbancisco, June 0.—The Chronicle my b; A story from British Columbia
to the effect that illicit sealers have arranged to pursue tho bunincas of stealing seals with the aid of aswift steamer,
has au air of probability about it. The
cruisers of the United States in Behring
Sea are lamentably slow tubs, and it
moderately fast boat could sail away
from them. Two years ago we mado
ourselves ridiculous by manning prizes
captured in the act of taking seals with
insufficient crewa with the result of the
captured running away with the captors.
It would not be a very creditable thing
if this mismanagement were parallelled
by patrolling the disputed sea with vessels incapable of overhauling a second
rate steamer. If we intend to maintain
our position we should at least do so in
a dignified manner. The United States
iB growing too large a nation to be made
a laughing stock, as it will be if it cannot enforce its proclamations.
Harmless Insanity.
Middlesborough, Ky., June 9.—One
of the most unique memorials ever proposed for a dead hero ia non* being discussed here. It is the erection of a
monument by the Grand Army men
and the ex-Confederate soldiers' acting
in unison, to the memory of their respective leadera in the civil war, Grant
and Lee, on two mountain peaks overlooking Cumberland Gap.
Mora Annexation Itubblsh,
Washinoton, June 7.—Evory effort
on the part of Tuppcr, Canadian Minister of Marine and Fisheries, to secure
anything approaching a settlement has
failed, and he haa informed Sir John
Macdonald of his inability to accomplish anything at Washington. A high
official in the Marine and Fisheries
Department aaid to-day, "Annexation
with the United States ia the inevitable
destiny of Canada. I am convinced
that Sir Charles Tupper's visit to Ottawa and Washington in connection with
the fishery and Behring Sea disputes
will be productive of no good results and
the Government knows it."
Wellington Disturbs the Market.
San Francibco, June 7.—In his weekly review of the coal market, J. W.
Harrison to-day says: During the past
week 14,270 tons of coal have arrived
from the coast mines and 3,326 tons
from Australia. There ia a stronger
feeling to market, due partly to the advance in aaking freights ou coal from
Australia, but principally to tho fact
that the labor troubles at the Wellington mine have not yet been settled.
There have been no imports of coal
from England for Beveral months, nnd
during the past two months only 20,000
tons have arrived from Australia. Notwithstanding this, however, there iB no
scarcity apparent in the local market."

Lost In a Quicksand.
Helena, Mont., June 9.—J. M. Page,
who has been on a surveying contract
for the Government, received a tele*
gram last night that George Freeman, a
young Englishman, one of Mb chain men
and an engineer, were drowned in the
Milk river yesterday. The surveying
party was camped at Point River, about
nine miles from Harlem Bottom. The
river runs over aqulcksand at this place
and it Ib supposed that they attempted
to cross tho stream and were caught in
the sand.	
A Thrilling Kvmil.
Liverpool, June ft—The steamer City
of Rome, of the Anchor Lino, which at
11 o'clock yesterday morning, while
at earning through a dense fog aud bound
for New York from thia city, atruck ou
Fustnot    rock,    returned    hero   this
{Before Sir M. 11. Begbie, ('. ,1.)
Coutt met again yesterday morning
when the trial—Regina vs. Houston was
commenced. The following jury was
empanelled: Murcheson, Robertson,
Morrison, Kuovian, Cadwallader, (foreman) Blake, Brown, Millar, Burritt,
Hodge, Allan, Anderson.
Mr. Hammersly appeared for the
crown and Mr. Woods for the defense.
The first witness, Mary, testified that
she heard a row going on in her grandmother's house on the night of the murder, and heard voices which she was
sure were those of prisoner and her
grandmother. She could not go to the
reacue of deceased because she was ill at
the time, her feet being terribly swollen. Houston had been to her door but
a few minutes before, that night, and
gave her husband liquor, then went directly over to her mother's house. Next
morning saw her grandmother lying
dead on floor with blood all over.
The croBB-examination failed to bring
out any new evidence.
George Robert, husband of last witness, corroborated the evidence of his
wife.
Florence Reed and Slacime gave evidence regarding the finding of deceased
at 7 o'clock in the morning lying on the
floor dead, and all doors of the house
broken in, ,
Another Indian witness saw prisoner
a few days after the murder hiding In
the wooda near Langley.
O. Wilkie, a Langley constable, arrested the prisoner and when told what
he was arrested for, said, "And they
blame me for it."
The court here, owing to the lateness
of the hour, adjourned to meet at 10
o'clock this morning when the taking of
evidence was resumed.
Mr. Moresby, Mr. T. J. Armstrong.
H. H. Williams and J. Burr gavo evidence regarding the clothing taken off
prisoner and what became of it.
The expert testimony of Dr. Praeger
was taken. He had examined various
pieces of the clothing and found blood on
them, which someone had been trying
to wash off. He performed the postmortem examination, having exhumed
the body six weeks after death. He
found uo fracture of the skull, though
soveral cuts and bruises along the head,
but could not tell much on account of
tho advanced state of decomposition of
the body. Blood was diffused under the
membranes of the brain, probably from
some injury to the head, when it would
be followed by speedy fatal results. All
the other organs of the woman were
healthy, though tlie heart hod fatty degeneration. Removed an old ossified
tumor from the woman's body for scientific purposes. I think that tho blood
was caused by violence.
This finished the case for the prosecution, and the court adjourned until 1
o'clock this afternoon.
On resuming at 1 o'elock several witnesses testified to having heard noises
in the murdered woman's house that
night and that tlut prisoner had come
over from the rancherie at that time to
"raise h—11" as he said. Ho had threatened to do something bad, and his voice
was heard in the old woman's house
immediately before the disturbance
occurred. It sounded liko a fight in
which two persons were rolling about on
the floor. Messrs. Woods, for thede-
fence, and Hainiuersley, for tho Crown,
addressed tho jury impressively and His
Lordship's summing up looked very
black for the prisoner.
The Premier Asks Only His Own Election, and Ignores His Trusty
Henchmen.
Noimi Arm, June 10;—The candidates
assembled at Lndner's Landing yesterday morning, and proceeded to Lulu,
where a very good meeting was held at
English's school house. Mr. Thomas
Kidd occupied the chair, nnd most ably
and Impartially did he perform tho
duties devolving to that office. All the
candidates addressed the nudience, and
were well received. The Independents
scored well, and made many friends,
who will mark their approbation at the
polls on the 18th.
Leaving the school house the candidates made their way to Richmond
Town Hall, where a stirring meeting
was held. Thero was a large audience
present, and groat interest was manifested throughout. ..Air. O. I). Sweet occupied the chair and made a very excellent presiding officer. Hon. John Hob-
sou attended thia meeting, and it was
the first time he met the other candidates on the platform. Owing to the
presence of the honorable gentleman it
waa expected that a very lively meeting
would be the result, but such did not
turn out to be the case: everything passed off quietly and without any occurrence worthy of particular note. It was
noticed and. commented on after the
meeting that the Hon. Mr. Robson failed to even refer to his trusty henchmen,
Messrs. Kirkland, Henderson and
Thompson, except in the general term
he applied to all the candidates of
"youthful, budding politicians." Not
only did the Hon. Premier avoid all en-
dorsation of his supporters in the field,
but he also neglected to ask the meeting to assist in electing them at the
polls. Mr. Robson asked only for himself, leaving the Government candidates
to light their own battles aud secure
their own election. These facts wore
noted by the audience, and not a few
comments were made on them.
Mr. Kirkland was the first' speaker
living much the same address as that
ielivcred at Ladners ou Saturday night.
He dwelt principally on the incompetence of the Independent members to
aasist their constituents in the Houae,
losing, aa he claimed, the opportunity to
do valuable service to them.
Mr. Punch made his best speech since
the canvass opened. He declared the
present Government had not done the
Mainland justice in ninny respects, but
more particularly in the matter of redistribution. The Government would
not pass the Redistribution Bill favored
by the Premier, and a compromise wub
made. The Government candidates
contended that there would not be three
parties in the Houae, but he differed
with them. ■ There were at present
three parties in the Provincial Parliament, namely the Government, the Op-
gosition, and the Premier. (Applause.)
assinj* on to the cure for the redistribution evil, the speakor advised the electors to Bend three purely Independent
members to tho House, and let them
assist to pass a good and just redistribution measure.   (Applause.)
Mr. Sinclair was tho next speaker,
briefly   reviewing   liis   platform, and
Kointwg out the advantages of sending
im as one of the representatives for the
District. His remarks were well received.
Mr. Hword took the stand that this
District should not return the Hou.
John Robson. The Premier was Minister of Mines, and Cariboo was a lit nnd
proper place for him to represent. If
the District returned Mr. Robson it
would be endorsing his nction in the
redistribution measure. The speaker
asked to be elected as an Independent,
when he would be in a position to oppose all unjust legislation and assist all
measures of benefit to tho country.
Capt. Thompson read his address to
the electors, and announced himself an
independent supporter of the Government or that portion of tho Government
which gave tlio Mainland its just rights.
He was afraid the Independents would
soon be a part of tho Opposition. He
asked for a liberal support ou the 13th,
and felt certain if the electors returned
him they would never regret it.
Mr. Henderson came out us a supporter of the Government, which he had
supported for eight years, for he believed
it progressive and just. He differed
with it only on the matter of redistribution. Had he known Mr. Kitchen was
going to take the field ho would not have
come out. He had no confidence in the
Independents. If Mr. Robson was de
feated Mr. Beaven would be at the head
of the Opposition aud Mr. Davie at the
head of the Government, aud all knew
what Mr. Davie's views wero; if this
state of affairs came into existence tho
country might well go into mourning
for four years.
Mr. Kitchen then came forward aud
waa received with hearty applause. He
was one of the much maligned Independents, but he could take uo other stand.
Tlie Opposition had uo policy, and he
did not know the Government's policy
to the Mainland (applause). The Mainland had not been treated rightly; the
Premier acknowledged this, but snid ho
could not do better, he waa outvoted.
If solid supporters of the Government
were returned at the coming elections,
what better position would the Premier
be in to pass a better measure. Again,
if Government supporters were returned,
it would be endorsing tho late redistribution measure. Ho wanted to go to
the House as au Independent, and when
the now measure came up he would be
able either to endorse it or work against
it, as the case might be. He would liko
to see the Premier returned from Cariboo, for if thnt gentleman was sincere
the election of three Independent candidates would greatly strengthen his
hands. As long as tho Island retained
its present power tho Mainland would
never get its rights (applause). Some
of- the candidates favored borrowing
money for improvementa; ho favored it
also, but not until the Mainland is
strong enough in tho House to ensure
ua a fair aharo of the money (applause).
The money would be borrowed, and the
Capt. Stewart—If we had better roads
and bridges wo would have brought
more.   (Laughter.)
Hou. Mr. Robson, resuming, aaid he
believed the franchise should be extended to women, for they would always
use it ou the right side. He had tried
in his weak way to bring the franchise
about, but his colleagues didn't agree
with him. Mi*. Kitchen had said Westminster District did not get back its
share of the revenue, and the honorable
gentleman went into figures to prove
that this waa not correct." The Premier
then went into the queation of redistribution, bringing forward the same arguments that ho had used at previous
meetings, nnd declaring that the Government was pledged. The Cabinet was all
one on the subject. He termed Thk
Columbian and News-Adrertiser " flop-
pers," and in return was anBwered by
criea of" What about the World and
TruthV1 He said he had made promises
which ho had not been able to carry out.
but that was not his fault. The promised
Redistribution Bill, however, waa another, and he did not think the word of
the Government should be questioned
on it. He assured the audience that if
tho Government did not carry out its
pledge in thia matter he would not remain another dav in the Cabinet. (Applause.)
A voiea—What ubont the bridges?
Mr. Robaon replied that four yeara
ago the question of building the North
Arm bridges had been advanced, and
after much trouble ou his part the contract had been let. The history of the
bridge was too well known to be repeated by hltu (great -laughter). He had a
great deal of trouble to get the money
for the bridges; never worked ao hard
for anything, and no one was more
grieved about the accidents that had
befallen them than he was. But he
considered himself free from any blame
in the matter; it waa not hia department. It waa the intention of the Government now to make these bridgea
permanent and excellent structures.
The hou. gentleman then touched on
the wild landa tax, the exempting of
homeBtcada from taxation to the amount
of $500, and questions relating to public
improvements. He claimed that he was
being constantly misrepresented. Mr.
Brown, a young and budding politician
at Westminster, a few nights ago hod
mado statements concerning him which
wero not borne out. While Mr. Brown
was speaking on the Mechanics' Lien
Law a gentleman in the audience rose
and asked him if he had ever read the
act, and Mr. Brown replied "no." And
thia was the sort of man opposing him.
The Columbian, however, said Mr. Rob-
sou, had taken good care not to publish
that.
Mr. Glover—The Columbian did publish It. It said, I think, that Mr.Brown
aaid be had not read the act, hut would
give it careful study.
Mr. Robaon—Yes, but that was put in
another part of the paper.
Mr. Glover—No sir, in the same column-
Mr. Robson referred no more to this
matter, but passed on to election matters, and asked to be returned, but said,
of course, if the electors wished to return some of these untrained youths he
would leave them, and not with very
hard feelings.
Mr. Kidd then put a few questions to
the Hon. Gentleman  concerning the
bridge, which the Premier endeavored
to answer, but very little information .
resulted therefrom.
Mr. London asked if it waa the Government's intention to build a trunk road
across the Island. Mr. Robson replied
that assistance to the road would be
given.
Mr. Kitchen naked Sir. Hobson if he
was aware that all candidates pledged
to tho Government had declared at
langley'that they did not believe the
Government sincere in its promises.
Mr. Robson—They are a nice lot.
(Laughter.)
A few more questions about the bridge
were put to Mr. Robson, which affected him so badly that he finally said:
Dear me, one would think I was responsible for tho accidents.
After passing a vote of thanks to the
chairman, the meeting adjourned.

Xoitrii Arm, June 10.—On Sunday
evening Rev. Mr. Thompson closed his
pastorate in this place. The church was
filled with an attentive aud appreciative
audience. The sermon was appropriate,
and wns delivered iu an earnest and impressive manner. Rev. Mr. Wood is
expected to arrive to-morrow.
On Wednesday of last week a public
meeting nt Richmond Town Hail was
addressed by the three Dominion candidates, Messrs. Corbould, Townsend and
Ladner. There wns a very good attendance. Reeve Sexsmith occupied
the chair. After each of the candidates
hnd spoken tho electors were given an
opportunity to ask questions if they
wished to do so. Mr. Sweet asked for
their opinion on the temperance reform,
but not prohibition. Mr. J, C. Ver-
mllyea followed with a few well-put remarks, regretting thnt not one who was
now seeking election was willing to take
a stand for prohibition, and expressing
the opinion that a man who takes his
glnflB would not make a very strong advocate of temperance.
Dominion politics, however, are
snowed under by the appearance of the
Provincial canvussers in a body. Last
night the hall was filled with a representative audience, who listened to addresses from the nine candidates in the
field in this District. The eight who
nre canvassing together drove irom the
South Arm; during the afternoon, they
called nt several of the farm houses, inspected the bridge*, etc., until the time
appointed for the meeting, nfter which
thoy proceeded to Vancouver. Hon.
John Robson came down from Westminster and returned thither this morn-
iug by steamer. I will not attempt to
report the proceedings of the meeting,
as thu press of Westminster and Vancouver were represented by their own
reporters.

but the Mainland would foot tho bill
(applause).   Tho speaker then touched
on the land laws and deprecated tho
present system of selling immense tracts
of land to speculators; tlie laud must be
reserved for actual settlers, and a' heavy
tax put on wild lands (applause),   He
claimed that, tho Government's policy
of dealing out lands waa not right. Private parties claimed to know more of
the Government's intentions than the

TUESDAY EVENING, JUNE 10. 1890.
THE VOTING YESTERDAY.
It is a matter for congratulation that,
in spite of tho strenous and unremitting
opposition thnt has been made to it for
the last month or so, the ratepayers
passed the essential by-law yesterday
by a fair majority. Instead of lying
idle for an indefinite length of time—as
the opponents of the measure would
havo had it—eating up ' the principal
with interest, or being squandered incontinently in an Ill-considered, half-
baked second edition of the hapless
North Arm bridges, the ureal bulk of
the railway bonus refund will now be
put to immediate and reproductive use.
Eighty thousand dollars, with the interest thereon, will be saved to the City
and tho ratepayers, in tho first place
and the well conceived programme of
street improvements will be carried
right ou. A first-class and swift steam
ferry, which will make the crossing of
the river a positive pleasure—whereas
it is now a thing to be avoided, and nn
intolerable bore, like tho measles, or
the early Church street worm—will be
put on the river between this City and
the Surrey shore, just as soon as the
boat and approaches can be built and
equipped. A rock crushing machine
will be procured, and iu time all our
principal streets will be made hard and
beautiful with macadam—"and hun-
" dreds of thousands of dollars" thus
saved annually in repairs. A fine building, which will be nt once a credit and
a source of revenue to the City, will be
erected on the site of the present "public
" library" rookery on Columbia street,
aud the valuable lot, itself, secured to
the City by this means. Thorough
soundings and surveys of the river, preliminary to the bridge, are now provided
for nnd ivill be prosecuted in due order,
and other necessary things can bo carried out by the City that must be dono.
Notwithstanding, then, the vinegarygrl-
maces that tho Church street organ indulges in this morning, we repeat, the
passing of the "Railway Loan Appro-
" priation By-Law" by the ratepayers
yesterday is a matter for hearty congratulation to every well-wisher of the
City.
The "Street-Widening By-Law" is, of
course, a comparatively unimportant
measure, and white we honestly differ
with tho verdict, which the majority of
the ratepayers voting have given on
this by-law, we bow to their potent
veto, and only hope thnt they may not
regret in the future the action which
they have deemed to be wise for the
preaent. We think that every unprejudiced citizen who considers the matter
carefully and looks nt it fairly, will regret that McKenzie street, at any rate,
not havo been widened through its whole
length to the same width ns it haa been
opened out between Columbia nnd Front
streets. The unsightly projecting "jog"
between Columbia street and the fine
temple of justice shortly to bo orected on
Court House Square must ever continue
to be an eyesore to every icsthetic
citizen. Indeed, to judgo by the general
expression nfter the election, the "Street
" Widening By-Law" would easily have
carried if the Lome street improvements
had not been included in it.
THAT PLEDGING BUSINESS.
Mr. Robson's frequent iterations that
he and his Cabinet are pledged to a fair
and just redistribution measure after the
census—which means, or should mean,
of course, if tbere is anything in it at
ull, the uttor ignoring of the "balance of
power" theory in the now Redistribution Bill—shows, at any rate, that he is
anxious to have the electors of the Lower Mainland, at least, believe that such
■ is the case, and if the honorable gentlemen persist a in this sort of second-hand
pledging business he will get himself
tied up in a hard knot pretty soon thnt
at some future time he might find it convenient to have a little moro lax. In
other words, the Premier's repeated protestations that he is pledged, both for
himself nnd the Government, to abolish
the "balance of power" theory after the
censua, may, in the absence of uny recorded and proved actual pledge, come
to be accepted as the "next best thing,"
so to speak, by tho electors.
As to there being anything in the
nature of nn actual recorded pledge from
the Government to the offect mentioned
above, wp have conclusively shown moro
than once thntnothlngof theflortoxists;
and, furthermore, thnt on the moat
natural aud opportune occasion for making such a pledge—to wit, during the
important and memorable interview
between the Government nnd the Mainland Delegation, when Mr. Robson was
strongly pressed to give such n pledge,
on behalf of his Cabinet, there assembled, aa well ns of himself, he distinctly
declined to do so. This can be vouched
for by every member of the Mainland
Delegation present at the interview, if
that were necessary, but even the Colonist's report of the interview does not
show thnt any such pledge wns given,
notwithstanding it has been foolishly
attempted to use it for that purpose.
But since Mr. Robson persists in declaring, ou the Mainland, that he and
the on tire Government are pledged, not
to Impeach the hon. gentleman's honesty
or truthfulness, his idonsof what constitutes n pledge may bo peculiar. And
so, in sooth, it would seem. In tho
Premier's address to hia constituents,
which he has hidden away lu the little
Church street sheet around the corner,
he makes the following deliverance on
the redistribution qucstou, which iti'
dudes what the honorable gentleman,
but wily politician, no doubt wishes to
be taken ns a " pledge":
The reasons and circumstances which
led ine to give reluctant assent to
temporary measure which I freely admit
ia unsatisfactory and does not meet tho
reasonable expectations of this part of
the Province, must already be sufficiently familiar to you. I shall, therefore,
content myself with stating that, should
the result of census-taking next year
show such a preponderance of population on the Mainland, as I feel confident
it will, myself and colleagues stand
pledged to obtain auch further legislation aa shall bring representation more
into conformity with population.
An election address is generally accepted as a carefully prepared and deliberately expressed utterance of the
candidate's views and policy. We may
therefore conclude that the above ia Mr.
Robson's idea of a pledge. The intelligent reader will see at a glance that
all definiteness is carefully avoided. Mr.
Robson himself (influenced by his colleagues, of course) is to be the sole judge
—upon himself he takes it—as to whether "the preponderance of population on
" tlio Mainland" which the census shall
show shall be "such a preponderance"
ob to justify the bringing in of a new redistribution bill after the cenaus. Then,
note, "myself and colleagues stand
" pledged to—" What? Abolish the
" balance of powor" theory after tho
census? Not much! "to obtain such
" further legislation ns shall bring rep-
" rcscntation more into conformity with
" population." This is certainly nice
nnd mild and vague enough to suit tho
most ardent Island sectionalism
Will the electors of the Lower Mainland—of Now Westminster District—
put any faith in such wily evasions nnd
vagaries? We do not think bo. We believe they will recognize the fact that
tho Premier ia aa powerless to really
pledge his Government to a fair redistribution measure after the census, as he
was to prevail upon them to put through
a half ■ way decent measure laat
session. And recognizing, nnd knowing,
this, we believe, the electors will act
upon their knowledge by returning only
avowed and undoubted Independent
men at tho polls, on Friday next, to ensure an unflinching and uncompromising
advocacy of their rights in the next
Parliament, Instead of depending upon
vague and shaky promises, which, when
the time for fulfillment came, would
prove only a fleeting mirage and a bitter
mockery. Electors of Westminster District, do your duty on the 13th, like
men, and like freemen.

down, the match was applied to the old

later she was enveloped iu flames. The
sight was a grand one-rcvcry line of the

Anyone who might have been strolling along the waler.front at about midnight, says tho Colonist, might have noticed a diminutive steam craft, sans
lights or signal-., glide silently out from
one of the slips above the railway bridge
and as silently leave the harbor. She
was bound for American soil, and her
cargo consisted of twenty-eight wretched specimens of the Chinese race, packed like Bardines in a box—for Ave or
six persons are all that the little
steamer can carry comfortably. Tt is
said that the craft in question haB almost as regular a route as the Islander
or City of Kingston, and in proportion
to her sizo makes ten times as much
money ns either of the boats mentioned.
Her plan is to land Chinese passengers
on or near the American shore, with one
white man, who takes the celestials one
at a time into Port TownBond or Seattle.
Twenty-five dollars each is the fare generally charged, and the business appears
to be paying well. Having landed the
"oxportflt" the steamer is Drought back
to Victoria by ono man, generally beforo the peaceful citizen has left bis bed.
Tlie UoarC.ntI.oosu.
Last night, says the Times of Thursday, tho pet black bear, "Rats," ntBeii-
con Hill, got adrift from her fastenings,
and took a pleasure trip by moonlight
alone. Rambling pensively around, enjoying the beautiful scenery of tho park,
Rats strolled in maiden' meditation,
fancy free. At length thu delicious
odor of fresh chicken saluted her delicate olfactory organs, and Rats was
keenly alert for game. Investigation
into tne cause of the smell disclosed to
Rats that a coop of chickens was handy
in the rear of Mr. Squires' rcsidonce.
Closer investigation was made by hor
bearship, and an entrance to the chicken coop was made. .Several of the fowl
were soon poultry, the sharp claws of
Rata being well adapted to catch and
kill chickens. She then ate two or
three, and her hunger being satisfied,
she bethought herself of her mate,
Jenny, tho Cinnamon bear, who was
still fast in the pit. .Determining that
her mate should enjoy a meal of fresh
Soultry, Rals gathered up a few of the
ead cltickB and started back to the pit.
The chickens wero tossed over to Jenny,
who was still tied, and a good feast enjoyed. This morning the stray bear
was captured and fastened again hi the
pit, and the chickens are now safe. The
almost human sense displayed by Rats
in taking part of the chickens to-her
mate would entitle her to a vote.

%ifter their names, clear signs of the

As usual some of the gentlemen chosen
by Messrs. Raymond and Brine, for the
cricket match on Saturday afternoon,

from those on the field. The following
comprised Mr. Ransome's team: Irwin,
Raymond, Wylde, Gifford, Vidal, Brine,
\Voods, Pbingdestre and Ransome.while.

and utterly ignored the candidates who
nre supposed to be on the Government
ticket, but, ub will bo seen by tho report
nlso where, stated in effect that ho did
not care if the electors of the District
Bhould return Independent men. Nevertheless, Mr. Robson has been doing his
utmost to defeat the Independent candidate iu this City, Mayor Brown, and
likewise, Mr. Cotton, in Vancouver.
What are the independent and intelligent, electors to make of such inconsistency and shifting?

I'olltit'iil Sleeting at Haiipartoii.
Mr. Thos. Cunningham held a political meeting at Sapperton last night, in
the dining room of the Brunette Sawmills. For some reason, best known to
himself, Mr. Cunningham gave no public, notice of the meeting, and it was only
by accident that many heard of it.
The mill's dining room was pretty well
filled, ami Mr. Cunningham entertained
his hearers with an account of his
stewardship, which wob verynearlvn re-
potion of his speech iu the Opera Ifouse
in this city about two weeks ago. Owing
to the overcrowded state of our columns
we are unable to give anything liken
report of what Mr. Cunningham did
say. .
After Mr. Cunningham had finished,
Mr, Cruikshauks, lately from Winnipeg,
told the audience what he knew about
lien laws, and endorsed Mr. Cunningham's action with reRpect to thu act iu
the House.
.Mr. J. R. Kennedy said that it did not
look well for Mr. Cunningham to hold a
meeting at Sapperton, as he had done,
without inviting the other candidate.
Mr. Brown had given some
days' notice, and had invited
Mr. Cunningham to his meeting.
He hoped Mr. Cunningham would attend Mr, Brown's meeting, whon questions would be discussed on both sides,
to tlie general satisfaction. The speaker
said no doubt Mr. Cunningham
had done his best, but a hotter man
was out, and ho was bound
to support him. Ho ventured to say
there wasn't a man in tho Province that
could have handled himself the way Mr.
Brown had done when down on tbe
delegation to tbo House last session, in
regard to the Restribution measure; he
had to contend with the smartest men
in the House, but ho was equiil to the
occasion.
After a vote of thanks to the chairman, Mr. Jas. Montgomery, tho meeting
adjourned.

Navnl Deserters.
Very rarely, as rarely as a maiden assize, Kays the Colonist, does it occur that
a mnn-of-war serves her time ou a station
aud takes home her full complement of
luen. The Amphion lias been by no
means any exception to the rule. Since
sbe has been on this station some forty
men have deserted hei, thinking they
could do better in a young country
where plenty of scope ottered itself for
hardy, steady men, and where they will
dp incalculably better than serving in
the routine of ship life. There have
boon several recaptures, but a subsequent and successful attempt has been
made in each case and the men secured
freedom. Two moro wero added to the
list Thursday evening. News 'haB been
received that they have entered Uncle
Sam's domain and resolved, pro tem at
least, to cast in thehjot with the starry
republic of the Worn. Both men got
away before, but wero recaptured and
imprisoned; this, however, has apparently not deterred them from a second
attempt.

CORRESPONDENCE.
PICKWICK AN8WKRBD.
Kditoii Columbian*:—Sin—I noticed
a communication signed "Pickwick," in
Saturday's Columbian, iu regard to the
social at St. Leonard's Hall. I was one
of tlie crowd that stood around tho doorway and on tho sidewalk, and I will tell
"Pickwick" why we did it. It was because the fit. ladies present, with the
tables that they Bat around, occupied
the entire hall, so that there* was no
room inside, for the ,12 gentlemen. The
men do not like to stand in front of the
ladies, neither do they like to sit at a
small table where thero nre four or live
strange Indies; it looks like intruding
on a small private party. I think they
will have to give up tho drawing-room
arrangement if they want to get the
men inside. Sidkwai.k.

Capt. Thompson Jtxplalna.
* Capt. Thompson claims that he was
inlsreported in his speech at Ladner's,
that he did not say he " threw the lie iu
his teeth," but that ho " throw tlie base
insinuation in his teeth," referring to
our war correspondent. Our correspondent says that he is willing to admit that
Capt. Thompson may have used tho expression "base insinuation" instead of
" lie."
For calm, cool, imperturbable impertinence, or, as tho Yankees say, "monumental gall," few things, perhaps, could
compare with the "cheek" of several
voting men, who, whilo walking along
the eastern part of Columbia near Meri-
valo street, Sunday forenoon, observed
a cluster of beautiful roses overhanging
a garden wall, and coolly tore off several
bunches of them to adorn their own por-
tons therewith. It is to be doubted if
the owners of tho flowers intended them
so hang over tlio wall pro hono publico,
besides tho blossoms wero not so near
that they could bo toadied without a
good deal of stretching and trouble.
Owners of gardens scarcely care to see
their choice flowers plucked by Tom,
Dick and Harry; this species of petty
thieving is most exasperating, as the
fellows who steal the floweru invariably
do much more damage to the bush or
shrub than the mere severing of tho
flower stem. Tho polico are supplied

Crops throughout tho municipality

The various young orchards arc doing

the fault of certain land not being so

Tho,Colonitt says', Now that tho proposition of filling in tho James Bay mud
flats has again been brought forward, a
prominent contractor, who knows what
he is talking about, suggests that tho
best way to do tho work would ho by
dredging outside of the lino of the retaining wall. It Is estimated thnt ..0,000
cubic yardB would bo required to level
the flats to high water-mark, or 70,000
yardB to a good building level. With
the new dredger ordered by Mr. R. P,
Rlthct the work could thus he dono in
80 or 70 days, and tho doubly good result would be achieved—tho flats would
be filled in and the harbor proportionately deepened.

thought it would he a good idea to try

to the general superintendent of tho C.

Aid. Hoy reported verbally on Mis.
Butt's application for street improvements. He said it was a very small
matter and could be covered by au outlay of $30 or $40, and he advised tho job
done as soon as possible.   Adopted.
Aid. Johnson reported vcrballv on
tho application of the Bicycle Club for
assistance iu constructing a racing track.
Tho bicycle men wanted tbo track made
close up to the grand stand and the
bottom or dip at the south extremity of
the course levelled up a little and the
track when once made kept in good
order. Mr. Latham had given them nn
estimate that the whole afiair could be
dono for $200, and as the club was not
able to do anything themselves nt pro-
Bent he thought this might bo advanced
by tho Council.
Aid. Hoy said it was simply a matter
of extending the present grounds and as
thero is money enough now ho recommended tho requested expenditure. Referred to the Park Committeo.
His worship said that while they woro
on the subject of tho park he would like
to see some one of tho aldermen bring
in u by-law for tho preservation nf the
park. It had lately boen reported that
n number of boys and careless persons
had doliborately trampled over flower
beds which had been newly laid out, nnd
it was too hnd that the work of tho gardener should bo ruined by tho carelessness on wantonness of boys und other
fiersons. Ho would liko to see n by-law j
ntroducod providing a suitable penalty
for suoh offences. Tho city did not want
to see people smashing all lho pretty

VOLUME VIII.
NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, JUNE 10, 1890.
NUMBER 109.
TO THE.ELECTORS
 OF	
New Westminster  District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to fill tlie 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 honor, I will now lay before you
some of my viows on the leading ques-,
tions which I consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.
I have been asked what I menu when
I announce myself as a Liberal-Conservative; 1 reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residence 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 I claim I am
a Liberal-Conservative.'? Owing to the
fact tliat party lines are not defined in
Hritish Columbia as they are in the older
provinces, J consider that our representatives are not in duty bound to givo a
through-thick-and-lhin support to any
party, hut they should go to Ottawa prepared tu give a generous support to all
noon measures which may be brought
before them, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, hut
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 stund like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed ton certain extent, to
tho Turin, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We aro a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers aud others, and
which wo cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, aud iu many cases the articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and othor articles are brought from tho States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross the boi'der for it,
aud are met with such heavy duties
that bonds of families in this I'rovince
pay more than ten lo 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
heen 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 iu 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 tho only
ones who have reaped the 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
question,I would advucate*'Keciprocitv"
in many articles which are at present iu the Taritr lists, as I think
it would he beneficial to both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go down so deep into his
pockets to buy what he needs to eat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
have a revenue to carry ou the attain, of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more aud get at the 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, and very
little during the previous one; so we of
this District have beeu practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before 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 FraBer as he seems to have beeu
when he proposed to cut oil' the mail
subsidy from that important route, and
thore are other places in the 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 he divided nnd receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
iu the Dominion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, and when the census
returns are in I think the necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation.
, Tlie protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also the works for improving
the channel at the Sandhcads, in view
of the expected increase in our shipping
interests.
I consider the 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 the Delta lands from the mouth
of the Ser|«ntine to Fraser Rivor, also
to enquire Into the question of cutting
one from the Fraser Kiver to Port
Moody, which has often beeu suggested
to me.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, and encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coming here fast
enough; I would not like to see a large
influx pour tn at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
There aro many other matters I should
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 ns possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send due notice of time and place of meetings.
During my long residence in 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 before the notice of the
House in a practical, buBiticss-like man*
ner.
SJhould I have the honor to be elected
I assure you I Bhall 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 to do my duty as such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.

To the Electors of New Westminster District:
GENTLEMEN:—Having been requested bva
large mini her of electors of this District lo oiler
myself nun candidate to represent you in tha
House of Commons, to which request I have
much pleasure in complying, I beg to state that
should you do me the honor to elect me ns your
representative whilst giving the present Government my free and independent support, I would
do my utmost to favor the following amongst
the many measures that I consider would In
beneficial to the. interests of this Province and
the Dominion nt largo.
To urge the further Improvements of the navl-
gallon of the Eraser und other rivers, the pretention of their banks, thu improvement of any
harbors in this District, nnd the construction of
eunuls where necessary for the purpose of
allowing farmers ami others every facility to
reach market.
To encourage agriculture by protecting all
such articles us can bu produced In this Pro-
vlnce, and to lower duties on all that cannot,
and which are absolutely tiie necessaries of life,
und increase the turlll'on luxuries so that tlie
consumer would be even taxed less than ul present.
To Increase the representation In proportion
to the wealth uud importance of this District.
To increase and have adequate mall service to
all portions of the Province mid free letter delivery in cities.
Nodlnllnutloii lu the Chinese Restriction
Act.
To have the Fishing Reiriilatlons amended to
meet ihe requirements of this Province.
To have u Dry-Pock constructed at some suitable point ou tlie Mainland to meet tiie growing
demands of this District.
To urge the exchange of Lands In Pence River
for tlie Lands In the Railway Relt;
And that Mining Machinery he admitted free
of duty until such is manufactured lu the Dominion.
To appoint effldent immigration agents In all
important localities.
To urge the Dominion Government to contribute to make Roads and Bridges through
Dominion lauds.
To urge Immediate aid in anv measure to prevent the overflowing of Dominion binds In this
Province aud to reclaim those subject to inundation.
Having been a resident of this Dislrict for ovor
twenty years and knowing Its requirements, I
should be In a position to advocate your Interests, nud also my having had the honor lo be
your representative for the last four years lu the
Provincial Legislature would place me In a position of knowing something of Legislative
routine.
I hope to visit each polling station during the
canvass end more fully explain my views on
the various topics of the flay, which would be
Impossible to do In a short address.
I have the honor to bc,
Gentlemen,
Your obedient servant*
ilwmylHte WM. II. LADNER,
TO THE  ELECTORS
New Westminster District,
GENTLEMEN;—As I have already announced,
I beg to ofter myself as u candidate for the seat lu
the Commons made vacant by the death of our
late member, ami I come bofuro you as a supporter of the Government of sir John Macdonald, reserving to myselt, of course, the right to
net independently should tho action of the Government in anv matter seem prejudlcal to our
interests.
I would strongly urge immediate attention to
the Improvement of the River where required,
for the protection of the rich agricultural lauds
of the District, nnd If elected, I shall at once
proceed to Ottawa and leave no stone unturned
lo secure the immediate appointment of a
competent engineer with a view to the prompt
undertaking of this most important work.
As you are aware, tho duty on certain kinds
of mining machinery has been remitted In this
Province ns a special concession to llrltlsh Columbia on account of the special conditions obtaining here. I would strongly urge the further
application of this principle ot special tarlil'ur-
ringcuients, so as to relieve consumers of goods
which must be imported, while preserving the
protection of our agricultural and other in
forests.
The land laws of the Dominion, having been
framed without close consideration of our requirements, are in many points unsuitable, for
example in tbe conditions us to clearing. I
would endeavor to securo immediate reform lu
this Important matter.
Subsidies having been granted to railways In
the various Provinces nf the Dominion, I should
urgently present the claims lo similar assistunce
of railways within onr own Province,
Should the City of New Westminster decide to
build a bridge across the Eraser, 1 should use
my best endeavors to obtain a substantial subsidy for the work, urging Hint an undertaking
of this character should rank with canals mid
railways as one entitled to national aid.
The next census will undoubtedly show sueh
an Increase in the wealth and population of this
Dislrict as will constitute an undeniable claim
to increased representation lu tiie Commons.
That claim, If elected, 1 shull support to the utmost of iny ability.
Although, with the growth of the District,
the mail service has been improved and extended,ll slill lugs far behind our requirements.
I should give special attention Io this part or
your representative's work, feeling that It Js
one which Is of vital Importance.
I should urge tho enactment of Suoh Jlshorv
regulations, especially iu the Issuing of licences,
as would, without any Injustice to the canneries, tbe importance of which to the prosperity of
the District nil must recognize, fiillv project
the free llsbcrmen, nnd encourage the settlement amongst us of the greatest possible number of that Industrious and hardy class of men
All enactments and regulations fur the protection of white labor would receive mv hearty
support.
Continued work towards the Improvement of
tho harbors of New Westminster and Vancouver, and ttie efficient lighting and buoying of
the same, Is a matter which would have mv
closest attention at all times.
In a word, I should constantly urge upon the
Government the wisdom of u liberal policy In
public works in this District, tbe vast resources
of which make It certain that such a policy
would be amply just 1 lied by results.
Trusting to have the opportunity of seeing
every elector before polling day,
I am, Gentlemen,
Very sincerely yours,

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
Westminster   District.
GENTLEMEN:—At the earnest request of a
largo number of tbe Electors of New Westminster District, I have consented to becomo a candidate to represent you in the Provincial Parliament.
I will endeavor to briefly present to you some
of the principal points in my platform.
1st. liim In favor of representation bv population and will consider It my first dutv to secure a fair und just representation for tho Mainland.
2nd. I nm In favor of dividing the District Into Ridings.
Hrd. I wlll endeavor to Increase tho grant to
municipalities from (1,001) to f ;,(kki per annum.
4th. I would also bc in favor of raising the tax
on wild lands to such mi extent its would prohibit speculators from holding lame tracts of
land, to tbe detriment of actual settlers.
5th. lam In favor of the Government adopting a public works policv and borrowing a million dollars, and expending tbe same on roads
and bridges throughout tlie District and also on
■ a scheme for tlie reclamation of overflowed
lauds.
Oth, I would strongly urge upon the Provincial ami Dominion Governments the necessity
of aiding the City ot Westminster In tho Immediate construction of a Truffle Bridge across the
Eraser River.
7th. I would also use my best endeavors to
have a railroad constructed from Pupcum to the
Delta.
Oth. The cutting of a Canal from Mud Bav to
the Eraser, thereby draining a large imrtlon „f
the Delta, and avoiding the dangers ol Point
Roberts.
10th. Tho erection of n Trnfflc Bridge at Pitt
River and tlie extension of the Westminster road
through to Agasslc
I shall also endeavor, If elected, to visit all
minimis of tbe District prior to tlie meeting of
Parliament to learn your wants, so as to be In a
position to discuss the same Intelligently during
Ihe session.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I would ask vou
for your votes, confidence and support at "the
forthcoming election.
I remain,
Yours faithfully,
dwmySltd ARTHUR M. HXRRINU.
TO THE ELEOTORS OF
New Westminster Distriot
an independent candidate for the Legislative
Assembly at the coming election.
As most of you are aware, I am an old resident
of the Distriot, und largely Interested In Its
growth and prosperity.
I am In favor of the division of the District
Into ridings, aud shall insist upon our having
our fair share of representation, according to
our population and resources, In the Legislature.
Antlits District contributes very largely to the
revenue, It is clearly entitled to large appropriations for public works, and substantial grunts to
the various municipalities.
I am a strong advocate of a free tratlie bridge
across the Eraser at Brownsville, and should
urge thut the Government subsidise that work,
aud I should also press for the construction of a
bridge across the Pitt River.
I am utterly opposed to tho Immigration of
Chinese, and tholr employment on public works
of nny character.
I am strongly In fnvor of borrowing tbe money
  _-iy	
ton railway from Hope down tlie south side of
tho Eraser, as such a line would give a vast impetus to the development of our District.
If you do me the honor to elect me I shall do
my best to advance our Interests In these and
other matters,
I uin, Gentlemen,
Yours sincerely,
JAMES PUNCH.

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
New Westminster Distriot
GENTLEMEN:-I offer myself ub a candidate
to represent you lu the Provincial Legislature,
on the platform suggested by the Mainland Association, free from any pledge to either party,
1 hold myself at liberty to give an independent support to uny Government tbat mnv be
chosen hv the people, As ait elector, 1 think
the District would make a mistake should the
electors condone last session's Redistribution
BUI, by returning cither the Hou. Mr. Robson,
or candidates hampered bv pledges to support
his Government, as representatives of this constituency.
Mr. Hudson is standing for Cariboo as well as
for Westminster District, so thero is no need to
fear that the Province wlll be deprived of his
services should tbe majority of the electors
agree with me on this point.
I am In favor of dividing Westminster District
Into ridings.
Anv measure* that appear tome to ho for the
benefit of the Province would have mv support,
nud I think that some safe scheme might lie devised by which the credit of the Province might
be lent for local improvements.
The contract system might to be more strictly
carried out,
I should also like to see some modification of
tho municipal system, by which localities outside of municipalities might have more direct
control of the expenditures in thdr neighborhoods, so as to secure the most economical and
elltclcnl disposal of sueh funds aud relieve the
central Government from the Invidious task of
deciding between diltercnt claims.
Speculation iu wild lands, whether lumber,
agricultural, or mineral, should be discouraged.
Should you elect me I will do my duty to the
best of my ability, aud trust you will give me
credit for honesty of purpose, even should you
dissent from my judgment.
Your Obedient Servant,
Matsi]iii,MuyHO, UJilO.

TO THE ELECTORS OF
New Westminster City.
GENTLEMEN:—Iix response to n requisition,
numerously signed, which lias been presented to
mo, I beg to offer invself as representative of
this City In the Provincial Legislature.
I frankly confess that, aside from the great
question of the just distribution of legislative
power, 1 would scarcely care to bc a candidate.
If you do me the honor to elect me I shall make
that question my first consideration at all times,
aud lu order to do this It is essential that. I
keep quite free from any entangling alliances
with either Government or Opposition. But to
the people and the advocacy of tlie rights of tlie
people, lu this matter and iu all others, I can
fully and freely pledge myself; and with those,
be they on what side of tbe House thev may,
who are animated by a similar spirit, I wilt work
cordially.
The present crisis demands special treatment,
We of the Dower Mainland arc denied our Just
share of legislative power, and so lung as thnt Is
the case our true policy, iu my opinion—uny,
the policy which our own self-respect cdiujioIh us
to adopt—is to return no man to the Legislature
who wlll not make the righting of that wrong
his Ilrst business. It may safely be assumed
that those who shall be fuund willing to do
right In lliis matter, wil be the most likely to do
right In others also.
Notwithstanding the utmost devotion fo this
first question, your representative will have to
deal with miinv other matters, and perhaps it
will be sufilcieiit now to say ou this point that 1
believe there is room for a good deal of work before tho administration of public affairs can
claim to bo what it should be—government by
tho people for the people. I should earnestly en
dcavor to do my share of that work.
I believe I may safely assume that you need
no assurance of my deep and abiding interest In
everything that makes tor tlio prosperity of New
Westminster City.
I am, Gentlemen,
Very truly yours,
dmylGtc J, C. BROWN.
TO THE ELECTORS
Westminster Electoral District,
GENTLEMEN:-As It Is difficult to arrange to
sec each individual elector before election dav,
I wish to put before you the platform on which
I stand whilst seeking your support,
Up to the introduction of tlie Constitution
Amendment Act, I should have supported tlie
present Government, but I now stand Independent of all parties on that measure, pledged
io obtain a fair and just Redistribution Act
immediately after the publication of the census
returns; such net to be based as nearly as possible ution population, the abolition of the balance nl power and the division of districts Into
ono member constituencies. Outside this pledge
I claim tlie privilege of being allowed to support
nuy legislation of a just and beneficial nature
which may be introduced by the Government.
I will endeavor to Impress upon the Government the necessity of tiie utmost liberality In
the expenditure for the opening up of all agricultural districts aud even, if necessary, to borrow money for this purpose.
Tlie conservation of all public lands for actual
settlement, and the abolition of all sales of bind
lu large areas, will be one of the chief objects I
shall hold in view, and to also assist in tho
greatest amount of laud being brought into cultivation, I would advocate the Wild Land Tax
being raised to 2b cents per acre.
It wlll also be my endeavor to impress upon
tlio Government fhe absolute necessity of taking
steps to assist in tlie reclamation of the large
area of land subject lo overflow by the Eraser,
sous to render It all lit fur cultivation, feeling
sure that any money spent in that direction
Will bc a good investment, us the lands wlll be
greatly enhanced In value for assessment.
From tho above you will see I stand as a supporter of the Government, excopt ou one measure, and feid sura that you wlll see that as I
am a resident farmer In tne district our Interests nre identical, and I hopo to be able to
materially advance the Interests of tho district
should you honor mc as your representative.
I am, Gentlemen,        , ,
Yours Obediently,
