Meeting uf tlie Campaign. Which waa
Ali« the Largest nml tho Must Kntliiini
astic mid Demonstrative nf the Whole
There were fully 1,600 people in Herring's Opera Houae laat night when
Chairman D. S. Curtis culled the meet'
ing to order.
Mr. Cunuinglmui snid he would attempt to clear away some of the.rubbish
thnt Mr. Brown hnd piled tu-ouud him,
but he wua hardly equal to the task,
ns patient a hearing as so poor a speaker
nud thinker had any right to expect,
Mr. Cunningham looked upon life as
far too serious a matter to even make a
joke, even if it was a good one, and
severely deprecated the propensity of
certain people for rending, and worse
than thut, quoting, such a villainous
writer as Murk Twain. The whirlwind
of amusement caused hy the expression
of such u lugubrious sentiment simply
defies description. When the sneaker
in uny way referred to Hoii. Mr. Rohsou
_\.- ..*iiij(.iw.f manifested its opinion nf
that gentleman in a very cyclone of
hisses, groans, loud execrations and
every other manifestation of public
wrath and disapproval. And when that
gentleman later on braved the indignation of the electors it was only another
sublime exhibition of that magnificent
assurance and superhuman confidence
in himself that sufficed to carry him
through.
Chairman Curtis informed the audience tbat they must not show those
signs of disapproval there, as it would
not be tolerated.
One almost trembled for the safety of
the roof us the immense crowd burst
into one huge, spontaneous and uncontrollable roar of laughter, when Mr,
Cunningham solemnly said: "Let us he
true; let us regard ourselves us honest
men." Mr. Cunningham read much
dry statistical matters and interminable
figures, which it is uo harshness to say
proved nothing, as the audience was in
I no humor for such infliction. Brown
! wus quite evidently the man tbey had
| come to hear, not Cunningham or not
i Robson, and if the 'audience showed
signs of impatience it was not to Ire
wondered at j for Mr. Cunningham is
most emphatically not an orator.
A gentleman in overalls, and conducting himself in rather a gay and festive
fashion, frequently interrupted tho proceedings, nnd only became quiet when
requested to do so by the chairman aud
Mr. Brown. Mr. Cunningham caused
much amusement hy appealing to the
workingmen as one of themselves. Innumerable intensely comical calls from

ns his clever henchman deftly dealt witli
the hugest questions of polity and statecraft. Hia relief when thnt gentleman
at length concluded to actually cense
talking, was extreme.
To attempt to describe the  reception
given Mr. Brown when he stood forth to
speak would l>e futile.   It was not an
. .j ovation; it was a triumph; one of the
" !.most signal evidences of bow tbe popu-
; Inr sentiment ran.   It was the antithesis
| of what Hon.Mr. Robson got.   Needless
[tosny, Mr. Brown easily outshone all
; the other speakers of the evening.   The
(clear, easy How of bis speech, his well-
-   rounded periods, his ringing voice and
portly •    bearing,    coupled     to    the
. perfect stream of interesting thoughts,
j sallies, quotations and witty  allusions,
expressed in well chosen, classical English, showed the people that he was a
j man worthy to represent any  iutelU-
i gent community iu any parliamentary
I assemblage in the civilized world.   Mr.
j Brown's speech was replete with Inter-
\ est   and,  as his opponents found to
| their   sorrow,  incontrovertible   facts,
j Tho nudience frequently interrupted him
! with the most unbounded applause and
j fairly crowed with delight as tne speaker
i splendidly rounded off some sly hit nt
■ his opponents or nailed them in some
subtle He.    The Victoria   ring   was
handled without gloves and although
Hon. John Bobson affected to smile as
Mr. Brown vehemently cried that tbat
accursed thing must be nnd would bo
"mashed, be really did   not look comfortable.   Mr. Brown gave one of the
most concise nnd clearest interpietn-
tions of both his own and his opponent's
position on the Lien Law. that lias been
beard in tbe present campaign.    It carried complete conviction to both audience and opponents.    Some astonishment was caused when Mr. Brown read
part of an editorial from the Colonist in
reference to the protection of Victoria's,
commercial and political rights.    The
Premier's faco was a study while thiB
clinching piece of evidence was being
rapidly unfolded by his masterly opponent, and the Opera House shook to its
foundations when Mr.  Brown stood up
and said; "That's what the Government organ at Victoria says."   The
audience thundered their mighty applause for over five minutes. Mr. Brown
concluded his grand speech by one of
thoso efforts of eloquence of which he
alone of all the speakers now before the
public of British Columbia seems to he
possessed; bo appealed to thom to stand
up   at   the   polls    and,  by casting
their votes for the Independent candidates, obtain what was their due—LIBERTY   AND JUHTIOK.     The ICOlie   following   the   conclusion of   Mr.  Brown's
speech  was simply indescribable, nnd
the thunder of the people's voice rolled
out into tho night aud was beard a long
way off.   Quite different was the sound
when the chairman  introduced   Mr.
Robson.   From the joyous sounds of
cheering and applause it changed ut
once to one vast menacing ronr of disapprobation as tbe honorable gentleman
stepped forwnrd.   A perfect hurricane
of hi8i.es swept the hall; loud shouts of
all kinds wero heard above the wild,
general din, while Borne cheered. The up-
roar was truly appalling. For a moment
the colossal nerve of the man seemed to
blench before the Indignant voice of the
people, but with a shrug and a smile he
wns himself again, liko Gloster in the
play.   Mr. Curtis stepped forward and
informed  tbe audience thnt ho wns
ashamed, nnd then sat down.
To attempt to wade through the
long harangue of the Premier would be
ns unreasonable ns to expect that tho
nudience would have listened to it patiently aftor the speech of Mr. Brown.
By everv means in its power the audience plainly showed that Hon. Mr.
Robson's weary repetitions and stock
arguments and pet logic (a kind indigenous in tho mind of the hon. gentleman)
were not to their taste. But that gentleman hung on to his subject with tbe
pertinacity of a bull-dog and obstinately continued to crmu down their throats
pntitudes they hud hoard and lend from
their infancy. His explanation of his
reasons for not stopping at the previous
meeting to argue the question was bo
"thin" that the nudience heartily laughed at the audacity of tho speaker in attempting to treat them like children.
He told the audience he huh feeling in
f;ood form and felt like nav-
ug "a rough aud tumble electioneering meeting," as be elegantly expressed it. And he got all he
wanted of It beforo the meeting wns
over. The explanation of the caucus
was rather dull, but not uuuiiiusing and
the audience did not seem to believe one
word the speaker iterated; that is
if    sarcastic    remarks,     long,     low
whistles of incredulity and
ou can be taken as evidence.
Mr. Robson's now well-worn explanation of why he did not step down and
out when bis duty pointed that way,
was also received with every mark of
incredulity nnd i in patience. Hon. Mr.
Robson said the Colonist had been merely
indulging in "electioneering stuff" when
it wrote the editorial read by Mr. Brown.
The risibilities of the audience
were again excited at this humiliating confession. Hon. Mr. Robson thou came to a subject on which, it
will Imj admitted on all hands without
hesitation, he is u genius nnd of which
he is the bright particular master, namely, invective. Vindicative, blind, unreasoning revengoful invective, which, like a
bull maddened by tbe smell of blood,
smashes both friend and foe in its furious charges. This time it was the poor
unfortunate Columbian that came in for
a goring from the Governmental bull from
the Victoria stamping ground. Nothing
could surpass the loquacity of the speaker when be stepped upon this his native
heath nud, in tlie language of the sailor
man, "slipped his cable and ran down
tlit wind. Dropping everything else
be stormed, foamed, fumoti and fretted
over Tub Columbian's action and made
more wild assertions about that sheet iu
ton minutes than he could reasonably
expect to make good in a century. But
.tlmt is veractnnvnen tnere is as mu.cn
at stake ns the hon. gentleman has?
Nothing at all. The very fictions he
charged tiff Columbian with he used
unsparingly himself in his attack on
the paper. Utterly misleading, false, untrue, untruthful, disingenuous, founded
on fiction, fabrications, figments, falsehoods are some of the choice verbal artillery brought to bear on the Columbian
by its accuser. And every man in tbat
audience knew perfectly well that if the
same adjectives recoiled and were applied to him who gave them utterance
they would describe to a T bis arguments against the Columbian and his
actions on the late redistribution measure. A gentleman in the audience rose
and asked Mr. Robson if he would, instance only one or two cases of falsehood
and misrepresentation in that paper.
No, Mr. Robson would not, because it
would take two days and two nights to
recite them all. Other gentlemen
begged the honorable traducer of the
Cclumbian to tell them only one instance
and they would bo satisfied. No, he
would not. Not because he was afraid
or could not, Ob, no, as they all knew
he was no coward, he was no man
to run away and not answer
questions, but, well, the fact of the matter was, you know, it was a matter of
expediency not to answer this one.
A wild' scene ensued here at the
refusal of the Premier to verify his
statements by proofs, and loud expressions of disgust were freely uttered.
He did not hold Mr. Brown responsible for the utterances of Tub Columbian. A few minutes later Mr. Brown,
speaking ou this matter, not only endorsed everything The Columbian had
said he was pledged to, but thanked
Tub Columbian for the noble stand it
had taken in the advocacy of the liberties of the people. Tbe tremendous applause which followed these remarks
showed whether Hon. Mr. Robson had
been telling tbe truth or not. Hon. Mr.
Robson, dropping Tub Columbian, then
attacked Mr. Brown. He sneered at
his "colossal mind," his "deep wisdom," his "marvellous capacity,"
and his "rich stores of learning."
He made bitter sport of that gentleman's absence from politics until lately,
and wanted to know what bc hnd been
doing with theso gifts all these years.
Mr. Brown in replying made such a
laughing stock of his cahnninator tbnt
no one euvied the latter in
the least. Mr. Brown could not
conscientiously return the compliment
about the qualifications Mr. Robson
hnd imputed to him. "How can ye
mnke bricks where there is no straw?"
The pledge business was worked by Mr.
Robson to its utmost capacity. Hnd it
burst its boiler right there uo one would
havo been surprised. But it seemed us
if the Premier could not let J. C. Brown
alone, ho came back to him again and
bestowed a few more kicks upon his
charactor by referringto that gentleman
aB a maiden politician and as a user of
glittering generalities. Aud he got
smartly rapped over the knuckles for
his pains. Mr. Brown placed Hon. Mr.
Robson in a most ludicrous position by
leading cleverly up to the maiden politician attack. If lie were a maid in
politics, good gracious, what must Mr.
Robson be? He drew the curtain there
and the audience went off into spontaneous convulsions of laughter. As to
the "glittering generalities" "is it not
better." said Mr. Brown, "to havo 'glittering generalities' than generalities
tbat don't glitter?" The result of this
apt query may be imagined. Mr. Robson boasted that he would he returned
at the head of the polls, and was interrupted by laughter aud scornful remarks that seemed to Irritate him deeply.
One ludicrous blunder committed by
the Premier is worthy of notice, if
only to show that, however clever and,
as the Yankees say, smart, he may think
himself, he may sometimes most egreg-
iously "put his foot in it." Mr. Robson had been indulging in a fulsome
eulogy ou his henchman, Mr. Cunningham, and was astounding the nudience
with a recital of thnt gentleman's glittering intellectual qualities, bis powerful grasp of rhetoric, logic, declamatory
action, and the magnitude of his extraordinary mind. "Yes, gentlemen, cried
the eulogist "yes, I tell you truly that
Mr. Brown is one of the ablest, most
forcible, und most convincing debaters
on the floor of that Houso." The scene
which followed this "awful break" simply defies description. Many felt sorry
tor the Premier as he stood gazing
speechlessly and helplessly at the huge
audience actually In paroxysms of merriment. An elderly gentleman rose in
his seat, aud cried, "Ah, my man, you
don't often tell the truth, but you did it
that time." A saying which a hundredfold increased tho uproar, laughter and
confusion. Never in his existence wns
the Hon. Premier Robson "put to it,"
as ho waB last night. A shade of anxiety
hung upon his faco, and everyone noted
that he Buffered from nervous agitation.
It is probably the first time in hia history that the Hon. Mr. Robson
met his match and tasted the
bitter dregs of defeat on a
public platform. For it was a defeat, a
rout, a slaughter nnd a complete extirpation of every single argument of the
lion, gentleman. The universal opinion
of tbo audience was tbat Hon. John
Robson aa a debater, a logician, or a
muster of rhetoric, ua well ns a clear,
cool thinker, is not half a match for the
man whom he tried to ridicule and discredit last night, and, bo It known, unsuccessfully. The very violence of his
tirade turned his hearers agaiiiBt him
nnd to the victim of his furious attack.
And poor, humble, chirping little Truth,
"the Government organ iu this city,"
let it bo published unto all the nations
of the enrth—poor unfortunate Truth
never got one word of praise, not even n
curie, and goodness knows, they wore
flying thick from the honorable bntteries
last night. Truth might do well enough
to advertise for tenders in or to bark
currish attendance on the Governmental big dog, hut to lie recognized
on n public platform before company;
why, don't you see? that wus out of tlie
question. 80 Truth will have to struggle
on in Its bumble ambition to provide
good sit'" tautial trunk lining and shelf
covering for tbe matrons of tbe Royal
City, and try lo forget that Hon. John
could not afford time either to kick or to
kiss it.
Mr. J, C. Armstrong's speech was a
masterpiece of humor aud  vehemence.
He made the Hon. Premier mighty un
comfortable, although that gentleman
artfully attempted to hide his irritation
and chagrin behind a laughing fuec and
jovial look. Mr. Armstrong's appeals to
tlie Premier to "como back to his first
love, the Mainland," were perfectly in
iniitable. Mr. Armstrong was kind
enough to shake bauds with tlie
Premier, and the honorable gentleman
seemed grateful for this act of kindness,
for which Mr. Armstrong deserves
credit.
Mr. Geo. Kennedy repudiated the
statements made by Hon. Mr. Robson
against Thk Columbian, and characterised them deliberate exaggerations
for effect; he was willing that Mr. Robson's statements as to how Tim. Columbian's utterances and reports during the
campaign were regarded by tbe public
should be tested by the electors iu this
City and District, aud thut tbe Premier's
reputation as a journalistic calumniator
nud a prophet should abide bv the same
verdict.
Mr. Ottoway next took tbo platform
at two bounds and u jump and showed
that be had had something to do with
amateur theatricals iu his earlier years
by the exceedingly stagesquc style of
his actions, Mr. Ottoway was accorded
a fair nud pationt hearing, and the
meeting dispersed with tremendous
cheers for the Independent candidate
ana inuuie uf tiuuuiut »Urt to. n.t> i'.u-

Chicago, June 18.—"There is uo
doubt of tbo Louisiana Lottery Company's getting a renewal of their charter" said C. S. Bush, of New Orleans,
to-day. "The passage of the bill now
pending means the reference of the
matter to a vote of the people, and if it
goes to the people it will bo adopted by
a vote of five to one. An election in the
twelfth ward of New Orleans was held
recently, and the issue wub the lotteries
nnd the "nnti's" nnd tho latter were
defeated by over four to one."

miles from here. Six persons were
killed and twelve wounded.
One coach was burled upon the switchman's sluniiy killing the switchman

San Francisco, June 13.—Tully Boyee,
the President of tho Miners' Protective
Association of British Columbia, is iu
this city. His business is to confer with
the President of the Wellington Coal
Co. so as to arrive at some plan of settlement whereby the locked out coat miners mny return to work. The men hnve
been locked out on account of a demand
for higher wages, since May 10. It is
also the purpose of President Boyce
while here to try and form a federation
of all the sailors, steamship men, sieve-
dones and employers of colliers whether
steam or sail, plying between this port
and British Columbia in conjunction
with the Miners' Union and stevedores
of British Columbia.

San Fbancisco, June 13.—The collier
Wellington will sail this evening or tomorrow for Nanalmo. The Seminole
sailed this morning for that purl. The
Wellington and the Seminole, which
have been engaged in carrying coal from
Nanaimo to this port, have been laid up
since the strike commenced in Wellington mines. It is rumored that the
strike is ended, nnd that ia the reason
tha vessels are going on tbo route again.

was learned that as far as their advices
were the strike is not yet ended, and
everything is in statu quo. It is apparent, however, that the strike must be
expected to end shortly or the vessels
would not be sent up.
Death of a nml Man.
Klmjua, N.Y., Juno 13.—Frank Wur-!
reiifii commercial traveller, was shot
and instantly killed at ids residence on
Columbia and Second streets by his son
Herbert, aged 10 years, at an early hour
this morning. Warren rehired from u
day trip last night and began quarrelling with his wife. The boy, who was
in bed, arose and interfered, and procuring a cheap 32 calibre revolver shot
his father in the right breast with fatal
results. Young Warren was arrested.
He takes it very coolly, und says
he saw his father chasing his
mother around the room; seeing bis
mother in danger of being beaten, he
fired the fatal shot. The coroner, who
arrived shortly after the shooting, found
several letters of an affectionate nature
from a woman in Norwalk, Conn., and
another from Buth, N. Y., making op*
pointments. Warren and his wife have
quarrelled frequently of lute.
The itcHtlrNH Cheyenne.
Miles Citv, Mont., June 13,—Colonel
C. D. Curtis, nide-de-cuinp to Governor
Toole.arrived here lo-day with arms and
ammunition. Immediately aftor his arrival he had a consultatiun with Sheriff
Jones and the citizens nf Miles City,and
some of tho Bottlers who have left their
ranches. He explained that the governor's instructions were to find out tho
facts in the reported troubles with the
restless Cheyennes, and that Ihe state
simply desired tt> aid the I'uited States
authorities iu case the resources of the
latter were not sufiloieut. At Colonel
Curtis' suggestion a committee was
appointed to wait ou Colonel
Swaine. commander nt Fort Keogh, and
request him to send the petition ul the
settlers to Secretary Proctor, to have the
Cheyennes disarmed and sent to their
reservation. A committee of eight, with
Col. Curtis, drove to the Fort where a
conference was held. Col. Curtis stated
his mission and read his instructions
from Governor Toole. During the conference it wus learned that sixty-five
young Cheyennes, with 48 guns were in
hiding near the Catholic mission, 14
miles from the agency, and that Major
Carroll, In charge of tho troop at the
agency, knew nothing of tbe fact.
Colonel Curtis suggested that the
committeo go to the" agency and tell
Major Carroll of the facts and have him
, disarm the reds and return them to
; the reservation. Colonel Swaine approved of I ho idea and suggested tbnt
Colonel Curtis and a settler mnke the
trip. This will he done. Colonel Swaine
does not concede thnt thoro is any great
danger, still, in the same breath, bo advised tbo settlers in that region to hike
their women aud children out of the
country. _    '_

Augusta, Ga., June 13.—Georgia furnishes another lynching. About three
weeks ugo George Peuna, a negro boy
about eighteen years of age, was arrested
aud lodged in juil in Klberton, in default of a thousand dollar bond to answer a charge of criminal uBsault, alleged to have beeu committed on Mr.
W. S, Butter's fourteen-year-old daughter, who lives in the upper part of Elbert
county. Peuna wus held in jail until
Inst week, when J. N. Hnll, who Hvob in
Hie same neighborhood, went to Giber-
ton and signed renna'BHutot^.aiKli.uuto
him stay in the upper story of his house.
About midnight last Thursday night
whilo Peuna was fast asleep, a mob
of about twenty-five masked men
went to Hall's house, got the boy, and
took him nwny. No more wns heard of
him until last evening when his body
was found in Brood River, 13 miles from
Elburton, with a forty-pound rock tied
around his nect and three bullet boles
in his head' The body was brought to
Elburton this morning and a coroner's
jury empanelled. The evidence developed the fact that Hall was at home,
but complained of being sick and did
not get up when the lynching party
came. The verdict of the jury was that
the deceased came to his death either
by gun-shot wounds or drowning at the
bands of unknown parties.

THE VOICE OF THE  PEOPLE.
Whatever the next fow hours shall
disclose the result of the die which has
been enst to-day to be, it is nn indisputable proposition thnt much good hns
already been done by the vigorous, if
seriously handicapped, campaign which
the Independent, the People's Rights
Party bas prosecuted since the proclamation springing the general elections
was published nbout a month ago. Public interest has been excited, public
patriotism aroused, und thu intelligent
und keen dttjowooloi. uf lliuau Vital questions aU'ecting the public welfare which
hns characterized the whole electorate
is iu marked contrast to the pointless,
issueless election* campaigns that have
been seen in the , Province, where the
"ins" and the "outs" nppealed only to
the more sordid passions—and the "ins,"
having control of the bag and tbnt which
wns put therein, made of course, the
strongest pull.
To-dny, It is apparent to everyone
who reads the signs of the times with
an unjaundiced eye, that the people have
at least begun to assert themselves, to
remember thnt thoy nre the- masters,
and not the slaves, to determine that
"government for the people by the
"people," shall not be merely a fine
sounding phrase, and to demonstrate to
their would-be masters and to the
world that they can both think and act
independently, that tbey know when
their rights have been trampled upon.
nnd that tbey know how to demand
their just rights.
The polls will, show, before another
sun has risen, whether the young nnd
struggling spirit of freedom and independence has burst nil. the fetters
which habit and the strenuous
efforts of a party of expediency have imposed; anil wo very
much mistake if a complete
emancipation is not the result which
tbe ballot boxes will proclaim. They
will at least show that the beginning of
the end bas come.
The Coi.us.iiian, for championing the
cause of the pnrty of Freedom and Independence, against the principles of injustice, tyranny, corruption and expediency in tho government of the country,
has been foully abused, misrepresented
and villified, not only by all the yawping journalistic curs that count the
crumbs from the Government table to
bo tbe chief things, but by the master
of the kennel himself, who has not lost
nn opportunity on nny pint form since
the campaign opened to indulge his peculiar faculty for violent nnd exaggerated vituperation. AVo cannot, however,
but take the Premier's ill-meant
attentions us a compliment, He commenced early, and he has worked late, to
villify and, if possible, discredit The
Columbian, as if on that depended the
Government's hopes of success on the
Lower Mainland. Last night Mr. Robson capped the climax by stating that
The Columiiian'h course excited only
ridicule and disgust throughout the District. All we can say is that the increasing circulation of The Columbian
and the hearty commendations wo aro
receiving from nil quarters do not tally
well with tbe Premier's hardy "bluff."
But Mr, Robson said the result nt the
polls to-dny would prove what he said.
We sliall see. AVo have already ample
evidence to make Mr. Robson's silly
utterance appear ns ridiculously untrue ns it is "monstrously cheoky.1
Perhnps the ballot boxes will likewise
falsify the Premier's confident but fool
ish assertion,
Whether the elections sliall publicly
and triumphantly justify The Columbian or not in tbe course it hns taken
since the infamous Redistribution Bill
wns introduced, and through tho campaign, we shull have the satisfaction of
knowing that tbnt course wns conscientious, consistent nud straightforward
throughout. When tbe Redistribution
Bill wnB brought down, nnd before
it hnd passed tbo final rending,
nearly two months ago, wo deliberately
stated that, "should the bill pass with-
" out amendment, the electors of the
j " Lower Mainland cannot afford to
"knoweither Government or Oppusi-
" tion in the coming elections." From
this stand wo have not flinched, even
when the unasked and unsought "Government printing" was transferred from
our columns, because we dared
to be consistent aud independent
to those of our local cotemporary's, because it could stoop for gain. This
stand we have maintained to the Inst,
We havo given ample rensons, and frequently reiterated them, for opposing
the return of Government candidates,
whether potentates or beggars, from the
Lower Mainlahd. AVe havo contended
on grounds of principle, not on grounds
of expediency nor'yet of personality.
We are willing to abide the result, aud
shall be content whatever it may be.
AVe hope the Premier may not be in a
worse case.
once said tbat "it is as ridiculous to
" decorate soldiers for being brave, as a
" woman for being virtuous." In both
cases we expect those qualities which
the rewards, if they mean anything, are
given for the possession of. In the
same way it seems almost superfluous
for the average man to expect anything
but a high code of honor and integrity
from the house of Cavendish. A dishonorable member of that family would
be hard to find. AVe hqve yet to learn
that any Home Ruler of weighty judgment has ever questioned Lord Hart-
ington'B high principles. AVe believe
him to be hopelessly wrong over the
Irish question, but at the same time
know that his opposition to Mr. Gladstone, hiB late leader, is animated by no
base or unworthy motive. AVe make
these remarks gladly, and regret that
truth will not allow us to speak in like
terms of the various other dissentient
Liberals who are doing all tbey can to
keep the Tory party in ofllce, if not in
power
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, who occupied the chair at the complimentary
banquet to Lord Hartington, spoke of
him as occupying a "unique position."
Tbe words were deserved, and
probably the member for Birmingham
remembered the fact that Hartington is
tho only Unionist leader who has not at
some time or other intrigued to buy the
Parnellite vote in the House. That political misfortune makes strange bed-
fcllutio,  ia   --.-H.n.nl.u__ttl.ly tTtH>, or    lilt)
extraordinary spectacle would not be
witnessed of a cultured and high souled
gentleman like Hartington being effusively patronized by a political juggler
like Chamberlain, bf whom it may be
said that bis "only principle is self in-
" terest." There is yet hope for Hartington. He is honest, and being an
aristocrat, will, we think, find his political home among the Tories eventually,
He cannot stay long in his present
position. "England does not love
"coalitions," once Bald Benjamin Disraeli, and at the next general
elections in England the Liberal Unionists will, we believe, fare as badly as tho
Equal Righters have done in tbe East.
The old battle array will resume the
fight, straight Liberal and Tory. What
is to be the position of such men as
Chamberlain when that day comes. It
is hard to tell what shifts such a political vagrant will be put to, to keep up
hiB notoriety, It would get rid of a
nuisance if Lord Salisbury created him
a peer. No one takes the House of
Lords seriously, aud with a coronet
Chamberlain would be harmless, and at
the same time could console himself by
trying to make the public believe that
for patriotic service to the state he had
been made an hereditary legislator.

TWO UNIONISTS.
Loan Hartington has been entertained at a banquet given by the Liberal
Unionists to congratulate him upon his
restoration to health and his return to
active political life. No one has any
cause for fault finding at that, and the
party be leads do right to honor him,
for he ia one of the most conscientious
and upright public men Great Britain
has yet seen. Ho is not an emotional
politician. Johnson spoke of the third
Duke of Devonshire as being a mail of
"dogged voracity," and the descriptive
force of this phrase applies equally to
the present heir lo tbat dukedom, the
Marquis of Hartington. The late

FHIDAY  EVENINU, JUNE 13, 1890.
FORT LANGLEY ITEMS.
(From Our Own Correspondent. 1
Langley, June 9.—After an interval
of oppressive heat, the temperature lias,
fallen and heavy rain showers are refreshing the ground. The erops are
looking remarkably well, and the
meadows give prospect of nn abundant
yield.
The usual monthly meeting of our
municipal council was held in the Town
Hall on Saturday, the 7th iustant, John
Maxwell, Esq,, J. P., presiding. All
the councillors were present. Thore
was an unusually prolonged sitting, the
proceedings having been continued until close on to 24 o'clock. The chief business under consideration was the assessment of the rates for the present year,
and the passing of a by-law in connection witli statute labor, with u view to
the formation of roads. Some benefit is
expected to accrue to tbo ratepayers
from the commendable efforts now being
made by the council to put the roads
and public works of tbe municipality
into a condition suitable to the requirements of the community; but, however
anxious to do so, it is quite hopeless to
expect the council to do much in this
direction with the slender means at their
disposal.
We may( however, look for help from
the incoming Government, as all the
candidates have been us one in their declarations to the electors, in promising
us no end of help to makuroads,bridges,
dykes, railways, and  everything that
Sublic moneys can supply to us unhappy
tainlanders; sowelivo in expectation
of the good time coming, when our
wants will be considered, und the
thoroughfares of tho Mainland be equal
to those on tho Island—a consummation
devoutly to be wished.
A second boom of logs has been taken
to the McLaren mills from this inunici
pality by Messrs. J. J. Hodder and A
Jenkins—with more to follow.
The threo river steamers continue to
come and go with satisfactory regularity
and with freight and passengers sufficient to indicate a prosperous traffic. A
steam launch has been ordered by a
young gentleman resident here, which
it is expected will soon be seen on the
river.
The Presbyterian Church service was
conducted on Sabbath here by Mr.
Stone, in the absence of our esteemed
minister, the Rev. Alex. Tait, enjjaged
elsewhere in the duties of the ministry.
In the evening the Rev. William Bell,
of Surrey, oi the English Church, conducted divine service in the school
house.

LIVERPOOL
CLAYTON NOTES.
(from Our Special War Correspondent.)
Clayton, June 10.—While political
strife is raging so fiercely you may not
deem a few lines amiss from this section
of the country.
The Provincial candidates held a well-
attended meeting at Surrey last Friday
evening, but your readers are doubtless
so well acquainted with their views that
it is needless for me to repeat them.
Mr. Kitchen, being a farmer's man in
every sense of the word, it is certain he
will poll a large vote in the District, and
I would also place Messrs. Sword and
Punch high up on the list, as they are
both known well and favorably throughout the country. I greatly fear your
tradesmen, Messrs. Sinclair and Herring,
will have to forfeit their deposits. We
are not so hard up in the District as to
have to select representatives from New
Westminster City.
I suppose Hon. John Robson intends
to ride V Surrey on "the high horse,"
as he advertises no meeting in this
municipality. It is to be hoped the hon.
gentleman may not experience a nasty
fall—high horses are sometimes danger-
hub to mount.
Not much consideration is given just
at present to the contest for the Commons, but the candidates nre oxpected
at Surrey Hall on Monday, 16th, inst.,
when this matter will doubtless be the
topic of the day. Mr. Ladner is sure of
a solid vote in the country, which will
probably place him at the head of the
poll.
A quarter-section of laud on tho Coast
Meridian road changed hands tho other
day. I understand the price paid for
the same was in the neighborhood nf $30
per acre.
Mr. Parkes had tlie misfortune to lose
his house by fire a short time ago and
some valuable papers were also destroyed.
Our postmaster, Mr. John George, is
still running his grocery store in full
blast, and finds almost the whole of his
time taken up in attending to same.
All are anxiously looking for summer
weather. We have had about enough
of the "showery," which is not very
desirable for the hay season, now fast
The ball held in Surrey Town Hall
last Friday night turned out a great
success, and everyone enjoyed it immensely.
The railroad camp on the Clover Valley road was broken up n short time ago
and all bands, I understand, are now at
work on the track adjoining the Hall's
Prairie road; it is to be hoped the company's intention of running cars this
fall may be carried out.
I hoped to send you a few items some
while back, but it is very hard to gather
interesting news in a country where we
are so much shut in by bad roads and
vacant lands.

Provincial Returns.

Pair Play to All.
Fair play is bounic play. At (he
Langley Prairie meeting, when Capt.
Thompson expressed his belief iu the
sincerity of the Government's pledges,
and wns asked to reconcile this with liis
expression nt Fort Langley to the effect
that he did not believe the Government
sincere, lie denied it, but was opposed
by a gentleman who corroborated the
first statement. Capt. Thompson then
explained that it was an omission which
he deeply regretted, it being his intention to divide the question, the doubt
only relating to the Victoria part of the
Government, not to thnt of the Mainland. This is a matter which Thk Columbian wishes to treat in all fairness,
and we publish this additional statement Bo as to give fair play all round
with perfect impartiality.

A T-angley Want.
The want of a telegraph office at Fort
Langley is keenly felt by the merchants
nnd others who nre so constantly mixed
up in commercial deals thnt the slow
going mails do not meet the requirements. Langley is a large and thriving
village, is growing fust and will shortly
have attained tho dimensions of a town.
Its commercial importance and extending business would make a telegraph
office a financial success from the start.
Mr. Abbott has been written tn concerning the establishment of this office, but
an application to Mr. .Tames Wilson, tho
divisional superintendent, would probably he the more proper course. Mr.
Drummond, mnnagcr for the Hudson
Bay Co., has kindly volunteered to act
ns operator without remuneration until
the office is on n paying basis. In view
of the fact thnt another telegraph company is about to extend its lines to British Columbia, it would bo well for the
Canadian Pacific Co. to take and hold
this viiluabln field.
The   Niitloiuil Clnnic.
The following is the lacrosse team that
will piny the Victoria team to-morrow
afternoon nt 3 o'clock on tbe Queen's
park: Goal, Thompson; point, McKenzie; cover point, Campbell; defence
field, Kctcbum, Steuart, Culbert; centre
field, Climic; Home field, I J. Peele,
Lewis, McGregor; home, Rynll; inside
home, Cambridge.
Everyone will bc highly pleased to
learn that the grounds have been swept
clear of all pebblss and other annoy ing
obstructions to playing. Tho home
team also aro in grand form and the
effect of their unremitting practice will
1» seen to-morrow when they face the
Islanders. If what the Victoria papers
say is true, their team has been neglecting practice of late, but it is quite probable that they will mnke n good game.
The home team should remember what
pnst experience has doubtless taught
them, thnt it is almost us dangerous to
meet a less skilful ndversnry ns ono n
little better thnu themselves. For this
very reason, thnt they are apt to trifle
with the unskilled team aud so cheat
. themselves of victory. Tt was tho Duke
of Wellington who said, "Never despise
an enemy."
THE CITY ELECTION.
DISTRICT RETURNS.
Victory Perches on the   Independent
Banners in the Royal
Oity.
Mayor Brown, the People's Candidate,
Eleoted by a Majority
of 200.
Mainland Rights Triumphant in the
Return of Its Ablest
Champion.
Most auspiciously broke the light of
day across the mountain tops this
morning, nnd those who watched observed thnt as the glorious King of Day
flung his gorgeous banners on the city a
strange device could lie seen workod out
on tbe ground of every pennon.
AgAinst the magnificence of crimson,
purple, blue and silver appeared in letters of gold, "Victory for the Independents." This, at least, is what some of
the enthusiastic membeis of that party
say, aud some of them ought to know,
as some of them Bat up all night and
had quite a salubrious vigil, nnd their
watches of the night were anything but
silent.
Promptly nt 7:30 the mnrshul of the
dny, Cnpt. A, Peele, assembled his aides
de camp nround him in the Court House
building, nnd solemnly gave each man
his programme. Along about 8 o'clock
littlo groupn iwgun to nssemhlo uronnd
the corners, und every man metnis
neighbor with the query, "Wero yon at
the meeting Inst night? And did you
ever in your life see two fellnwsget such
u dressing down as Kobwn and Cunningham got from Brawn? Why, I
wouldn't have occupied their hoots for
anything. My, didn't he comb them off?
Then every man and boy in the vicinity
went into political discussion immediately and the amount of argumentative eloquence expended on the morning air was simply wonderful. Then
the hacks, carriages, wagons aud carts
came out and it was a man's own fault
if he did not get a free ride.
Hon. Mr. Robson went over the river
to sec about things, and nn anxious man
wnB he. Home were saying thnt it wns
a problem in Hon. John's mind whether
it would be better to be elected in the
district and let Brown win here, or turn
all bis attention to defeating Brown here
and let the district go to—well, wherever it chose. But the trouble about
this nice speculation was that that fellow Brown would be elected anyway,
confound him; he had a sure thing in
the city and was certain to be elected as
quick as one could sny "Jack Robson,"
when it came to the polls. This bete
noii; Brown, (If the pun is excusable)
was a stumbling block unto hpnorable
feet, nnd even as the surfeit of green
apples weighs heavy on the youthful
stomach, so weighed this Independent
member ou the Ministerial souls.
And yet the other side rushed around
with vigor unsurpassed aud hustled
their voters to the polls in the liveliest
fashion and "Cunningham" was the
cry. Both parties worked as if life depended on their exertions. No argument that heated fancy could suggest or
precedent display was left unspoken.
There was a broad hint of liquid refreshments somewhere and in the middle of more than one crowd of debaters
could be felt the potent influence of the
"incense-breathing horn." ft is safe to
say that no man who bad a vote was left
unnsked. Townrds tlie afternoon excitement rose to fever bent und
many anxious enquiries were made
as to 'the sta{e of the poll. It
is said that large sums of money
were staked ou the result both as to the
city nnd District. Throughout the dny
the Independent aide displayed tlie
same fiery zeal thnt hns characterized
their efforts from the beginning and it
must be admitted tbey bud excellent
good stuff to contend with iu the Cun*
ninghnm committee men, who moved
heaven nud earth, flgurativelv speaking,
to return their candidate. _^o unseemly brnwls or fights took place aud there
was almost a total absence of "staggers"
among the politicians. Towards
evening expectation wns on tip-toe
and excitement at fever heat. Great
crowds gathered around the Court
House, nnd speculation of all kinds was
rife ns to the majorities and the size of
the vote polled. The following is the
result of the polling:

Brown  530

CAI'T. THOMPSON SPEAKS.
Editor Columbian : Sir—j have only
just now seen the report of tbe meeting
nt Chilliwack in The Columbian of this
dntc, and hasten to inform you that, iu
conversation with Mr. Kitchen this
morning on the boat, he stated his belief, before witnesses, that Mr. Robson
was in no way responsible for the closing
of the meeting at Chilliwack by the
Grand Master of the Oddfellows. This
will snow you what dependence can be
plnced on the correct reporting of your
correspondent. 1 hope your sense of
fairness will forco you to insert this
letter.      I remnin, yours truly,
Livingston Thompson.
New Westminster, June 11, 1890.
[Perbups Cnpt. Thompson will point
out where Tub Columbian charges Hon.
Mr. Robson with being responsible for
the Grand Master of the Oddfellows
closing tbe meeting. Tbe Grand
Muster was not mentioned in the report. .The Hon. John Robson nlonc
wns responsible; ho got up and objected
to Mr. Kitchen making a speech, nud
thnt wns what brought the hurricane mi
his bond. Wo hope Cnpt. Thompson
hns not intended deliberately to be unfair to our correspondent, but his letter
imquestioued would be misleading. If
Cnpt. Thompson would cnll to mind
whnt transpired in tbe Government
caucus nfter the Chillawnck meeting lie
would be very ready to admit tbnt our
correspondent did not draw in the
slightest upon his imagination.]

Victoria, June 12.—Capt. Coffee, of
the seized smuggling steamer "North
Star," haB retained legal counsel to tight
the cuse to the bitter end with tho custom*, authorities. He denies the charge
against him and says he is able to prove
that IiIb destination on tho night before
the seizure was really Prevost Island,
whore he had cleared for. He met a
mishap to his machinery winch forced
him to put into Hobs Bay and then to
Victoria. He denies smuggling anything into Victoria and says the American playhig cards seized near liis. landing were brought over by a well known
smuggling sloop.
. A large quantity of coal which went
to the bottom with the steamer Hariuml
Castle, some years ago, when she was
wrecked at Race Rocks, has
been found to be in us good
condition au when loaded at Wellington
Mines, Capt. Whitelaw will recover it
all.
Eight vessels are in Nanaimo harbor
and Departure Bay awaiting cargoes of
new Vancouver coal. This is the largest
number of vessels that has been in tbo
harbor for this coal for the past eighteen months. There are more vessels en
