encouragement of the padrone system
and IiIb alleged -connection with the importation of contract laborers from Italy.
in violation of the laws of the United j
States. Nothing is known about the
matter nt the State Department, and it
is said there that no complaint whatever
had been made against the Baron. An
Italian philanthropist and agitator has
beeu making war on Fava, it is said, for
several yoars and hns repeatedly preferred charges against him to the Italian
Government. He says he has cable information from the Italian Government
that a notice of recall was sent to Fava
two or three weeks ago.
A Sail Affair.
Salt Lake City, June 7.—Word was
received lost night from Payson, Utah,
that a few evenings ago three children
of Mr. Boron, living near there, found a
can of kerosene and one of them, a boy
aged 7, poured tho contents into the
stove. The oil exploded setting the
boy's clothes on fire and also setting
fire to the clothes of a baby one year
old, The burning boy ran out and hid
among some grape vines where he was
found some time later burned to death.
The bnby was badly burned but will recover. 	
A Great   Demonstration.
London, June 7.—To-day the biggest
temperance demonstration over organized, was held iu Hyde Park. The
speakers denounced tho Publicans' Pension Bill. Larjjo delegations came from
distant provincial towns and were in attendance. One of the most useful contingents was tho Roman Catholic to
whom Cardinal Manning addressed i
few words of advice before they march
ed. Support from the advanced wing of
the Church of England temperance society was also added.
Where Will It Kml?
Beki.in, June 7.—The minister of war
■ t to-day announced to the military committee of the Iteichstag tbnt a bill
would be introduced by the Govern1
lent for the construction of strategical
; railroads and for the training of reserves
I in the use of the new rifles lately issued,
land nlso for nn appropriation for the
; further equipment of the army. He
I declared that no one capable of bearing
! arms should cense training when he
i had completed his term of service.
; The Government had only decided upon
, the main principles of the measure con-
j cerning tne reserves. The demands
contained in the military bill were small
I compared with those of the French Gov
I eminent. Ho added that the Govern-
: ment meditated a still further increase
j of the peace footing hy 40,000 men more
than the present bill provides for.
Sounds I.Ike Moonshine.
I Vienna, June 7.—Prof. Falb, the
Grata, astronomer, who predicted the
great earthquake in Germany in 1870,
and who, a few days ago, said tbat this
month would witness upheavals in
Mount /Etna, predicts a terrible European earthquake on June 17th. He
oases his predictions on his theory
which haB so frequently been proved
correct. It is that when eruptions nre
almost due that the moon exerts a
peculiar influence on volcanoes.
Major Wlssman's Opinion.
Beiimn, June 7.—In letters received
from Major Wissman the opinion Ib ex-
pressed that the mere patrolling of the
African const by cruisers will not suppress the slave trade. He declares tbat
the establishment of garrisons along the
coast line is an imperative condition
to the successful suppression of the
traffic.       ___	
Well-Knrneil Money.
London, June 7.—Justice Butt lias
awarded £7,500 to the steamer Alders-
gate and £600 to the steamer Ohio as

The Formal Announcement.
Berlin, June 6.—Iu connection with
the statement tbat appeared to-day in
tho columns of the Berliner Tagblatt, to
the effect that Chancellor Von Caprivi
hnd notified the powers that the utterances of Bismarck woro only those of a
private gentleman, it is now stated
tbnt the communication referred to, was
merely a formal and official announcement to the various European Governments of tho resignation of Prince Bismarck as chancellor of tho empire, a
procedure usual in such cases.
trade for twelve or fifteen years, was
finally convicted and sentenced to two
years in the penitentiary. When she
was released three years ago she started
a little store in the suburbs known us
Rhine Town or West Side, and that was
her occupation when arrested. Samuel
Kissinger is a well-known character
about town and William S. Foltz io
president of the First National Bank.
About a month ago MrB. McGinty
cautiously approached Kissinger and
told him there was "big money" in a
job she bad on hand, providing he had
enough nerve to work, She finally'told
him he was to make away with Folt/..
Kissinger immediately informed the
police and tbe woman was arrested.
She laughed at the idea that she was in
earnest when offering Kissinger the bribe.
For three weeks detoctives have shadowed tbe McGinty house day and night in
the hope of finding some mysterious
person, and what they learned tbey nre
not ready to divulge.
The  Harvard Crew.
Boston, Mass., June 5.—The Harvard
freshmen held a meeting last night to
devise some scheme to rnise money for
their crew. Manager Sullivan stated
that the financial condition of the crew
waB desperate. The Athletic Committee refused to allow tbe crew to go to
New Loudon unless $1,000 is raised this
week. The class voted to support tlie
crew aud to pay the subscriptions.
Extra collectors will be appointed. The
fate of the crew depends ou tho raising
of the monoy.
■Extraordinary Occurrence.
Nbw York, June 6.—David Ely, the
three year old son of John Ely of Freehold, N. Y., met his death in a peculiar
manner to-day. His father dug a post
hole at the back of hia residence and
tbe littlo fellow in playing around it

about because of his romantic marriage
with Miss Susanna Bancroft, the handsome grand-daughter of Bancroft tbe
historian. Carroll bas hunted all over
America and once before made a trip to
Africa, but his last adventuro was expressly for big game. He went nway
with a most formidable equipment of
smooth-bores and rifled guns. He and

equatorial Africa and spent several
months slaughtering big game. Three
hundred natives wero employed aa carriers and camp attendants. The hunt
wui a most successful one. for early this
vear, when they returned to Zanzibar
tor a breathing spell, they had killed
over 200 head of game, including elephants, lions and leopards.

Bloodthirsty Indians.
Washington, June 0,—Congressman
Carter, of Montana, to-day received a
despatch from Miles City relating the
facts in connection with the Cheyenne
uprising. The message states that the
Cheyenne* killed Mr. Ferguson, a prominent stockman of Custer, and tbat the
provocation was the fact that Ferguson
bad discovered the Indians killing cat tlo
and reported it to the authorities. It
further relates that the lives of people in
the vicinity are in danger, if the Government does not immediately come to the
assistance of the Bottlers with troops.
The scene of tho murder Ib about sixty
miles south of Miles City, which is the
nearest railroad and telegraph station;
and tho reservation on which the Indians
aro located Ib probably thirty miles from
Fort Custer, the nearest military post.
Representative Carter and the Montana
Senators havo made application to the
Secretary of War for a detachment of
troops to go Immediately to Cheyenne
agency, nnd arrest the murderous sav-
ages who aro guilty of the slaughter of
Ferguson, ana boo that order la preserved. There is uo doubt that tbe request
will be granted.
A Strange Case.
Newcastle, Pa., Juno 5.—A great
sensation was caused here by the arrest
of Mrs. Itandolph, who is charged with
having conspired to murder Banker W.
S, Jolts., This woman, who is best
known by tbo name of Mrs. McGinty,
made a business of illegal medical practice, and after carrying on her nefarious
THE CONVERSAZIONE.
Editok Columbian—(Sir.*—A conversazione was held last Thursday night at
the new building known as St. Leonard's
Hall, in this City. There wero about
two hundred present. The room in use
for the evening Is of fair size, well
lighted and admirably arranged ns to
acoustics. Thursday evening it presented moro the appearance of a drawing
room, being arranged artistically by
some of the congregation of Holy
Trinity. A few musical selections were
rendered by the choir nnd others.
One marked and amusing feature of
the evening, to those unaccustomed to
to life in the "far west," was the persistent inclination which was manifested
by the gentlemen to embrace the doorposts. During tbe whole evening, the
numerous gentlemen present [with one
Or two exceptions! grouped themselves
artistically together, as near the door as
possible, ready to mako a hasty exit,
should any of the gentler sex venture
into their domains, which, it is needless
to add, they only did when stern duty
iu the shape of tea nnd cake, compelled
them to do so.
At last, one gentleman, braver than
the rest, dared to pass the Rubicon, aud
come boldly forward with a look of
Spartan indifference on his manly features. Alas I his bravery was short-lived
He did indeed venture to address one or
two of the fair damsels of the Royal
City, but then his courage failed.
Whether ho did not meet with a kind
reception, or was greeted with what
Dickens calls a "atony glare," I know
not; but certain it Ib, that, with a downcast look and drooping mien, lie precipitately retired from the enemy's camp,
and made his way back to his less aggressive brethren, "a sadder and a wiser
man." Poor follow, he has my sympathy. And, so, trusting that he will not
be discouraged, but in the near future
try once more, I bid him and his confreres, in the words of the Immortal
Weller—"Ado." Pickwick.
THE STREET WIDENING BY-LAW
Following are the essential provisions
of the Street Widening By-law which
will be voted on on Monday next by
the ratepayers of this city, concurrently
with tho Railwny Loan Appropriation
By-Law published in full in our advertising columns. We omit the first portion of the preamble of tho "Street
Widening By-law," which is icpeated
in the other by-law mentioned, aud, to
save space, also leave off the routine
clauses at tho end:
And whereas the streets known previous to the passing of the Streot Naming and Nun ibe ring By-law as McKenzie Street aud Lome Streets, aro not
sufficiently wide to accommodate tbe
present prospective t raffle, or to offer nn
efficient barrier to the spread of fire.
And whereas the Government of
British Columbia Is about to orect a
court house in the centre of tho block
bounded on the east and west by said
streets, and to widen said streets opposite said block.
And whereas it iB desirable that the
said streets should be widened as well
between Columbia and Clnrkson streets.
Therefore, the mayor and alderman of
the City of Now WestmlnBter, in council assembled, enact aB follows:
1. It shall be lawful for the council to
appropriate $10,000 of the $165,000 borrowed under authority of the Railway
Bonus By-Law 1880 nnd apply the same,
or so much thereof as may be required,
to the widening of the said streetB.
2. In tbe event of its being found that
the snld sum of $10,000 Is greater than
Ib required for the purposes mentioned
in section 1 of this by-law, the surplus
mny be applied to anv of thu undertakings mentioned in subsections b, c, d, e,

wide, which is hold by the company to secure the whole of tbo strip on n lease from
tho Government so tbnt they will control a water frontage a mile in extent on
the Fraser aud au average width of laud
of over half a mile.
It is this block of laud which itis
proposed to subject to hydraulic mining
for the purpose of recovering the gold
contained in the gravel, of which both
the upper and lower benches nro composed.
I have visited and carefully examined
the property with tbe object of ascertaining, first, to what extent gold is
present in the gravel composing the
benches, aud second, to what extent it
is udapted to to the application of hydraulic methods of mining, As to tho
first of these questions the evidence is
as follows:
1, In the early days of placer mining
iu British Columbia the ground wns
occupied by numbers of miners, who,
by the crude methods at their disposal,
were taking out gold from tbe surface
layers of gravel nt tbo rate of sixteen
dollars per day, per man, according to
information furnished me by Mr. Smith,
M.P.P., who resided at Lillooet at the
time and has continued to reside there
ever since. At the time of tho Cariboo
excitement iu 1802 this ground wns suddenly abandoned by the minors, who
left tor the richer diggings in the north,
White miners never returned to the
district lu any force, but the ground haa
been mined in a desultory way by Chinamen, and at the time of the occupation
of the property hy tho present compauy
it was being mined by a number of
Chinese, who, not having compiled with
tbe regulations of the mining acts, lost
their rights.
The hindrance to more vigorous work
by either white men or Chinese hns
been to a large extent the difficulty of
procuring water. The history of the
property goes therefore to show that the
ground contains gold enough to repay
work of tbe crudest sort.
2. Before the present company von
tured upon thu purchase nf tho ranch it
was carefully prospected by an experienced placer miner, who informs me
that he has found "colors of gold'
every pan of gravel be has washed,
il. The present company have made
two trial pits on tho lower Iwnch, one of
the steamer Gascogne landed her passengers at Havre. The trip from New
York had been a slow one, but there
were serious reasons for the delay. In
fact, it was a miracle that the steamer
ever reached Havre at all—almost a
miiaclc that she is not lying now at tha
bottom of the sea off the Scilly Islands.
This is how it happened: On Sunday
morning the Gascogne was steaming
ahead at half speed enveloped in a dense
fog. The hour was 0:50 o'elock. A few
minutes before a sounding had been
made and fifty fathoms of water had
been registered. The last bearings bad
beeu taken at Friday noon, but since
then Captain Santelli had been unable
to establish reckonings on account of
the impenetrable fog. The captain
knew, however, that in tho natural
course the steamer must pass close to
the Scilly Islands, and as an extra
caution he had the vessel headed two
points away from the point of possible
danger.
Such was the situation. Whon eight
bells sounded the Gascogne was moving
slowly in a calm sea, with four men in
thoboAS one man in the croBBtrees,'
Captain Santelli and third officer on
the bridge. Most of the passengers
were still below, when the bank of
dense fog suddenly lifted as a curtain
rises from a stage, and revealed dead
ahead, so close that one could have
tossed a biscuit on it, a black, ugly rock
a few feet above the'water, showing a
surface as large, perhaps, as a billiard
table.
The four men at the bow saw the
danger first, and waved their arms frantically with a backward motion. The
captain saw the signal and understood
It, Like a flash he sprang past the subordinate officer, seized the wooden
handle of the electric dial, and four
times, in rapid succession, described a
half circle with the lover that told the
engineer to reverse the engines as he
valued his life.
Then, with another bound, the captain reversed the wheel and with all his
might drew the helm hard a port. He
baa done all thnt human hand could do.
With tight-shut lips and whitened
cheeks, he clutched tho spokes and
waited, Tlio great ship trembled, from
end to end, as the engines were reversed.
Almost at the same moment a slight
shock was felt on the port side, jnst
two trim pus on ine tower oeneu, ono oi i ~i:::.; a.Vtr«_* _,* *..„ i,..;,i_,n
yards of gravel yielded  within a fow I The .^n^ogne slid, gently, off the rock [
dollars of $700 or on an average, twen
i-cnts per cubic yard; which v
good paying ground. At tho sei
about 1,800 yards of gravel were r
aud I was myself present at the
up" and snw gold to the amount
taken out of the boxes,   This  woi
give an average of eight aud one third
cents i>er cubic yard. This amount does
not, however, represent the value of the
gold in tbe gravel. A large proportion
was lost owing to tbe crude nud insufficient appliance for catching the gold.
Of this lam sure, since I saw scales of
gold one-sixteenth of an inch in diameter going over the end of the Inst box
into the wash dump. With proper appliances none of the gold Bhould bo lost
in this way, and the yield. would bo
much greater.
Thoro is therofore iu my judgment no
doubt as to the auriferous character of
tho gravel. Assuming that it contains
only ten cents per cubic yard it would
pay well and monoy could be mnde by
economic working, if it only contained
half this amount. Tbo bench occupied
by the ranch is two hundred and fifty
feot above tho river, nnd I estimate thnt
the proporty of tho company represents
at least 00,000,000 cubic yards of gravol.
This at ton cents per yard represents $0,-
000,000. As to tbo adaptability of tbe
ground for hydraulic mining I have lo
roport tbat all tho conditions nre most
favorable. Tho gravel composing tho
benches is stream bedded aud washed
down easily, It was not anywhere, so
far ns I was able to observe, cemented
into a hnrd conglomerate. The situation
of the property ou tbo banks of a powerful stream like tbe Frasor, where all
refuse aud debris can be dumped and
rapidly carried away, is all that could
bo desired. Tho company controls a
sufficient supply of water for prosecuting hydraulic work, Thoy secured two
hundred Inches of wator in a inountnin
Au investigation proved that the vessel's iron side had been torn open by
the shock, and that the sea waB pouring '
through tiie opening, which lay below
the water line. The cargo was promptly shifted so ns to raise the wounded
part as far out of the water as possible.
Tipping to one side this wny the Gascogne came into the harbor as soon as
possible after the accident.
A Herald correspondent, who chanced
to be among the passengers, interviewed
Capt. Santelli. "Wlmt wbb the rock
wo struck, sir?"
"It wns a smalt member of the Scilly
islands.   It was a narrow escape."
"Hut bow do you account for having
been so fnr to the north?"
"Itis certainly very strange," answered tho captain, "especially asl had
headed the vessel out to sea tor extra
safctv. I can only account for the extraordinary dovlatton by assuming that
we were borne to the north by some unknown currents. I have made ovor two
hundred voyages, however, but have
never heard of such currents. The extent of the vessel's deviation from the
normal course is shown by tho fact that
the rock we struck, which is known as
Bishop's island, lies at the opposite side
of the group to thnt on which the Gascogne should havo paused. On the selfsame rock the Schiller sank somo years
ago, when some hundreds of lives were
loM."

THE DAILY COLUMBIAN
SATURDAY EVENING, JUNE 7. USO.
THE TWO BY-LAWS.
Provincial election matters, very
naturally and properly, are occupying
the chief place in tbe public attention
nnd thought just now; but, notwithstanding the fact that the decisive day
is bo near, the all engrossing nnd important Bubject of Provincial politico
nnd issues must take second place for a
day or two, for the consideration of immediately momentous local issues. On
Monday next, June the Oth, two by-
- laws, the "Railway Loan Appropriation
" By-Law," and the "Street Widening
" By-Law," passed n month ago by the
City Council, will be voted ou by
the ratepayers, and it behooves every
ratepayer to give both measures his
careful nnd final consideration, so as to
be prepared to vote intelligently and in
his own, his family's, and the City's
best interest, on Monday.
Tbo first measure iu order of importance is tho " Railway Loan Appropria-
" tion By-Law," which will be found in
another column, and which has been
published in this paper onco every week
since it wua passed by the Council. Tho
purpose of this by-law, it will be seen,
is to enable tbe Council to appropriate
to other purpuses n portion of the $155,
000 borrowed under authority of the
" Railway Bonus By-Law, 1880," the
bonus itself, it will be remembered, hav
Ing beeu recently relinquished to the
City by the Hallway Company. The
" Railway Loan Appropriation By-law"
seeks, then, to appropriate $180,000 of
this $155,000 Southern Railway bonus
refund to the following purposes, which
'■■ an examination of tbe by-law
itself will prove: The sum of
$82,000 to be applied to street
. improvements, in lieu ofjthe $80,000 nnd"|
the premium expected to bo realized
under authority of the "Street liuprove-
■ "mentLoan By-law,"recently passed
(which, iu the event of the appropriation
by-law carrying on Monday, as it should,
will be rescinded and the money never
borrowed); $20,000 foi* the establishment
of an efficient steam ferry across the
Fraser river at this City, and for the
erection and equipment of the necessary
wharves and ways; $1,500 for making
full and exhaustive soundings and surveys of the river at this City, with a
view to tho construction of a traffic
bridge; $6,000 for a rock crushing machine for the use of the City; $4,000 for
procuring necessary right-of-way for the
extension of Columbia street west and
for tbe Southern Railway; $2,500 for
protecting and improving the "plensure
" grounds," principally tho building of
retaining walls which tlie Southern Railway Company was bound to do had it
retained the bonus; $4,000 to be refunded to the general revenue, being the
amount paid out of that account for tho
purchase of the steam ferry charter
from the ownere; $20,000 to be applied
to the erection of a suitable building on
the lot now disfigured by tbe so-called
public library building.
Next to the clause appropriating $82-,
000 of the railway bonus referred to for
street improvements.—nnd thus enabling
tho by-law recently passed for tbat purpose to be rescinded, and the debt of
the City by so much reduced, us well as
the interest saved to the ratepayers-
must be mentioned, in order and in importance, tbo $20,000 appropriation for
a proper steam ferry and approaches to
connect this City with the south side of
the river. This item, although involving a comparatively small expenditure,
is perhaps entitled to be considered ns
the most important In the by-law- The
immediate necessity for the establishment of a proper ferry, service between
the north and south banks of the Fraser
at thiB City ia patent to everyone. The
need is literally a crying one. The old
derelict nt present doing duty (?)nsn
ferry is not only notoriously incommodious and inconvenient, but positively unsafe ns well, and our trade relations with
the large and important farming districts to the south nre riufferiug serious
damage evory day that the present
scandalous state of things exists. It Ib
not necessary to go further into detail,
the whole subjectof "Brldgeand Ferry"
lias been thoroughly thrashed out, and
has resolved itself in the minds of the vast
majority of the reasonable and unprejudiced ratepayers into the simple and
wise solution of, Ferry, first nnd immediately, aud a carefully planned, properly constructed, unquestionably substantial, and first class bridge at as
early a date thereafter as practicable.
The very first stop towards the construction of a proper bridge is amply
provided for by sub-section (c) of the
by-law, which appropriates tho sum of
$1,500 to defray the cost of tho necessary
thorough soundings nnd surveys of the
river. This work, as well us the construction of the ferry, will be proceeded
with immediately on the passing of the
by-law. •
Sub-sections (d), (o), (f) and (g)of the
by-law havo beeu briefly mentioned,
; and" tbetr object* stated, already in:,this
the exception, perhaps, of the appropriation for a rock crushing machine,
which will undoubtedly meet with the
general approval.
Sub-section (h), appropriating the
sum of $20,000 to be applied to tho erection of a suitable building on the lot
now occupied by the old public library
building, provides for a necessary expenditure in a very important senso,
As many of our readers will remember,
this valuable lot was convoyed to the
City some time ago by tbo Dominion
Government, on condition that a proper
building be erected and a free public
library maintained. Nothing has yet
beon done towards currying outthose conditions, nnd the civic authorities have
received intimations thnt it will not lie
snfe to delay fulfilling their part of the
bargain. To let this important and
valuable piece of proporty revert by do-
fault to the Dominion Government is
what no patriotic ratepayer would think
for a moment of permitting. Therefore,
the erection of a suitable building with
as little delay as possible, becomes actually necessary. But tliis is not the
only way to look at the matter, Besides
being an ornament to the city, nnd giving employment dining its construction
to a considerable number of men, the
building, through the rent of the stores,
etc,, would in a very short time pay the
interest on Its cost and Income a source j
of revenue to the Citv.
The " Street Widening By-Law,"
upon which the electors will, also, have
an opportunity to pass, on Monday, Is
entitled to a brief separate notice. In
the first place, it should be stated that
this by-law is in no way connected with
the " Railway Loan Appropriation By-
"law,"-although both are voted on in
the same day, for economy and convenience's sake. Each stands upon its merits,
and the passage or defeat of either will
not in tbe slightest affect the other.
As this by-law haB not been published
as an advertisement in this paper, we
print the essential clauses among our
reading matter on another page. A
perusal of those clauses will show that
the object of the by-law is to appropriate
the remaining $16,000, of the $155,000
railway bomiB refund, for widening McKenzie and Lome streets, between Columbia and Carnarvon streets, and between Columbia nnd Clarkson streets.
A careful reading of the essential portion
of the preamble printed will discover
tho very good and sufficient reasons why
it is desirnblo that these streets should
be widened. The proposed street widening will not only add greatly to the
practical utility of the streets designed
to be thus improved, and to the public
convenience and comfort, but will largely enhance the uniformity and appearance of that portion of the City, as well
as the value of the adjacent property.
One thing is certain, assuming it is
desirable that the streets iu question
Bhould be brought to a uniform and
proper width, this result can never
be accomplished so cheaply again as
at the present time, when real property
is lower in price than it will be in either
the near or remote future, and when
the lots, a strip of which would have to
be expropriated for tho streets, are
covered now with old rainshakle wooden buildings, that must give place shortly to costly brick and stone structures.
It is practically, in other words, a case
of now or never with respect to widening nud improving the streets in question.
Misrepresentations ure being freely
circulated, if is understood, about this
by-law, with the view of affecting not
only the vote on the two by-laws, but
the Provincial City election as well. Im
terested parties are endeavoring to
create the impression that the "Street-
" Widening By-Law"Ib inseparably con
nected with the "Railway Loan Appro-
" printion By-Law," with the object of
defeating both, whereas the two bylaws are entirely separate and the vote on
one will not in the least affect the other.
The false story is also current that the
Council, or rather the Mayor, has bargained with certain property owners to
give them a certain exorbitant sum for
a strip of land to be expropriated from
their lots for widening the streets in
question. It is doubtful if there nre
any people Blmple enough to believe
such a story, although thero appear to
be individuals unscrupulous enough to
invent und circulate it.
The facts of the case, of course, are
thut the Council, in naming the sum of
$10,000 in tbe by-law, merely take the
highest figure, as a necessary precaution, which it is estimated the street
widening in question could possibly cost,
and plnce the by-law before the ratepayer so that they may pronounce
upon the policy of widening the streets
denoted at this time. If the by-law is
passed, the amount to be paid for expropriating the necessary property wilt
be settled by arbitration, and not left to
any private bargaining on cither side.i
This is so reasonable aud obvious as j
hardly to need stating but for tho in-'
dustrious misrepresentations noted.

light of the best interests of the city, wo
would respectfully submit thnt tho ratepayers would do well to pass both the
by-laws upon which they will vote on
Monday. The "Railway Loan Appropriation By-law" it would certainly be
a serious mistake to defeat. The money,
it will bc seen, is all appropriated to
good objects, which becomes more apparent the more they arc examined,aud
it is true economy to put the money into immediate use, instead of allowing it
to rust as a "nest egg," ub interest is
being paid on it all the time by the
ratepayers. Whon money is wanted
for the actual construction of the bridge,
it can be borrowed in very short order,
and likewiae put to immediate use. In
the meantime, every effort will be made
to secure considerable Government subsidies for tho bridge, and tho soundings
and surveys will go on immediately, if
the first by-law is passed.

EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT.
Toe order and method of presentation
determine the order and method of representation.
Motives aro high in proportion to the
absence of selfishness and the presence
of benevolence.
The best physical development results in health, strength, skill and
graceful action.
The knowledge of general relations
r must bo preceded hy the knowledge of
I special relations.
Physical skill requires repeated vol-
[ untary aetlon of thoso muscles which
, are to aot skillfully.
The conditions under which presentation takes place determine the probability of representation,,
.The powor of demonstrative reasoning
is developed later than the power of
moral or probable reasoning.
The development of tho moral character depends upon the nature of tho motives which influence tho will.
The purpose of education is determined by the civil institutions of the
country In which the child lives.
The'highest typo of moral character
Im found in tho man who performs right
actions from tho highest motives.
The action of tbe representative faculties is conditioned by tho previous action of tho presentative faculties.   _

KiiighU ot Pythias I.culur.'.
A goodly number of people greeted
Ilia Lordship, Bishop Sillitoe, last evening at Sf. Leonard's Hall, when thu lecture under the auspices of the Knights
of Pythias was given. Although at a
disadvantage iu not being one of the Sir
Knights, His Lordship displayed considerable knowledge of societies in general, saying that the back bone of them
all was Friendship, Love and Truth,
and tracing them down from the earlier
net-mils of civilization ns au outcome of
Christianity. The order of the Knights
of Pythias was first instituted by Rad-
bouru, who from this fact has been
known as the father of Pythiasm, Thc|
earlier history of tho order which originated in the States, saw many difficulties, and during the American war the
society nearly collapsed, but since then
it has been continually gaining ground
until now, there were progressive and
prosperous branches in nearly every
town of importance over the vast terri-.
tory between the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans. The lecture was listened to attentively by all present and nt the close
a voto of thanks to the bishop was
unanimously carried.
. Tito Lacroue   Ground*.
We have been requested to draw the
attention of the Park Commissioners to the bad condition of the
lacrosse grounds, caused by the small
gravelly stones with which tho grounds
are completely covered, thereby rendering it dangerous to those who afford
amusement to a large number of people.
Even though but few practices have
been indulged in on the part of tho
lacrosse players, several of the best men
have been severely bruised from falling
upon or tumbling over these stones, and
in fact two of the first team aro so badly
injured that u rest of several days wil'l
be required before they can venture
on the field. Many of the players of
our national game havo declared that
they will not go on tho ground until the
stones have been raked off, simply for
their own personal safety. It has'been
suggested that the ground be swept nt
least once a week, and for the safety of

A  Lovely 8|>ot.
Governor Moresby, of the Provincial
jail, returned this morning from Sechelt,
whither he had gone to secure two witnesses in one of tbe murder cases to come
before the assizes .next week. Mr.
Moresby was Baying that the village of
Sechelt is worth a long journey to see.
The improvements which the Indians
have made thero Binco last October aro
astonishing. There aro now two streets
in the village and about 300 houses, ail
of Indian work and beautifully finished.
Not a particle of the work was done by
white carpenters, the only white
man in the settlement besides the
priests being Mr. Brandon, the
musical instructor. Some of the residences aro two stories high and are finished in a manner that would do credit lo
any of tbe cities in the Province. Tlie
Indian Catholic cathedral which has
been lately built, is a splendid specimen
of architecture. It is iu the form of a
cross, and is surmounted by two large
spires after the Oriental style, with a
kind of cupola or swell about the middle,
not unlike the Kremlin spires at Moscow.
Tho cathedral is richly inlaid with
wood mosaics, displaying au amount of
artistic, u.sthctic taste not at all lo bc
looked for in the supposed wild Indians.
The windows ure of stained glass, giving
the interior a rich and appropriate appearance. Tho interior of the building
strikes the visitor with plensnre and,
surprise, no ecclesiastical building iii!dJu7M
the Provinco exceeds it in beauty of
finish nnd complete harmony of detail,
while its seating capacity is almosl
equal to that of St. Peter's in this city.
But liberal as is the accomodation provided in the sacred odifice, it is not
nearly enough for the enormous number
of worshippers at present gathered nt
the great religious meeting nt Sechelt.
To accomodate those who cannot find
entrance to the cathedral two immense
tents have been erected on cither side
of the sacred edifice, aud in these the
sendees of the church nre administered
to the congregations. Indians from
every part of tno Province are preaent;
theKootenays, Osoyoos, Cariboo, Cassiar,
Harrison, Squamish, Chilliwack, Sumas,
Queen Charlotte Islands, West and
North Vancouver Island, and many
others are thero under their chiefs,
Bishop Durieu is conducting the religious services, and ono of the most
unique as well as most affecting spectacles is afforded as the bishop goes to
the cathedral through a long double Hue
of chiefs and priuces of the tribes, ench
of whom devoutly kisses the bishop's
hand and humbly bows his head as the
holy man passes onward to the church.
Governor Moresby says tbat the appearance of the village from tho sea is
exquisite, nnd would form a subject well
worthy the attoution and best work of
the cleverest artist in tlio world. He
nlso thinks thnt an excursion from
Westminster to Sechelt nt the present
time would be ono of the most-enjoyable
trips possible The boat from Vancouver makes the round trip in one dny, allowing the passengers a stay of over two
hours ashore. Governor Moresby secured tho men he sought for and' took
them from a crowd of about it thousand
Indians without the slightest molesla-
tion or obstruction.

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
A llellr  of nnrbiii-iHin.
The Koniau Catholic Clergy and I lie
Indians themselves arc justly indignant
at their religions meeting al Sechelt be
ing called a potlach. Truth was, in
usual, the author of the heartless shin
der, and it is kinder to believe, through
ignorance rather than malice, A potlach
is one of those fearful orgies which had
their origin in the immemorial past;
and was, in Hie old days, a chance for
the untutored savage to indulge his
animal propensities in company with
hundreds of his uncouth brethren. Old
feuds were dug up and settled at the
potlach. Clan prejudices were raked
out of their almost forgotten hiding
places in the past, and the savage quarrels of the fathers, long since dead, were
renewed with bitter energy by" their
sons. Like the ancient Germans, who
wandered through tbe forests of I'mi-!
rn'oniaaiidSoythia, the Indians of tlie)
North West Pacific imagined that iho I
hereafter was one long potlach of gross
delights, where they could bo drunk
dov ' all eternity' und exact a
sweet revenge from hated enemies, The
advent of the pioneer missionary, tlie
lato lamented lliuhoij D'Herbomez,
marked a now era, and the dawn of a
brighter day for the poor Indian, ltis-
4rop D'Herbomez virtually emancipated
tho Indians of this Provinco and is on-
titled to the proud name of " the Marquette of British Columbia." Indeed,
it is to be doubted whether the famous
missionary of Michigan nnd the Northwest had such dangers to encounter as
his less-known, but equally brave and
unselfish emulator. Very fow men
would havo possessed courage enough to
go single-handed amongst tlie ferocious
savages of western Vancouver Island
nnd the North Coast, at it time when
those fierce hentl.cn were known onlv
for their blood-thirsty tastes, and their
mad fondiiess for battle, murder and
rapine. To go amongst those semi-
cannibals and toll them that it was
wrong to requite injury with injury, and
ithat the cherished festival of the potlach
Was wicked and dobasing, required a
courage superior to that of the soldier or
the ordinary pioneer. But what
kind of man D'Herbomez was is
well demonstrated in the following anec-
dote of the hardy pioneer missionary.
A number of tho bishop's brother missionaries, were up at the Mission, on
the Fraser Rivor, ono day, shortly alter
arriving in the country. They were
discussing the question of remaining at
that place, and in fact had reached the
decision thut it was no place to settle,
as there were nothing but dense forests
around and the soil would grow nothing
but potatoes. About the time they had
fully determined to movo from tlij '
and seek more favorab'

The Hudson Bay barque Titnulu,
which left London on tho 20th April
last, consigned to Messrs. Bell-Irving,
Patterson A Co., of this city and Vancouver, is expected to arrive nt tho dock
of tbat llrm In this city about the beginning of August next. The Titania's
freight, of which there is about 1,200
tons, 500 being for Westminster, 800 for
Vnncouvor and 400 for Victoria, consists
of merchandise which will be unloaded
here and distributed to the various parts
of the Province. The greater pnrt of tho
consignment to this city consists of piping for tho Gas Company. The ship
will then bo reloaded here with a consignment of Balmon for London, Kng.
The fact that tho Tltanin was to arrive
in tbo Province has beon going the
rounds of the Victoria papers, but instead of mentioning that 600 tons of
freight wns for Westminster nnd 300 to
Vancouver, they took particular pains
to impart the knowledge to the public
thnt only 50 tons wns tor Westminster,
50 tons lor Vancouver and all the remainder of tho cargo wns for Victoria,
which is absolutely falBo. The ontor-
prising firm of Boll-Irving, Patterson A
Co. deserve tho highest praise in this
their first venture to bring a loaded ship
to this port, and tho Tltnnia is only the
first of a series of ships which wlll arrive
in this city, consigned to that firm.

VOLUME VIII.
NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, JUNE 7, 1890.
NUMBER 107.
TO THE ELECTORS
New Westminster  District,
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to fill the va<
cancy caused by the death of our late
representative (the much-respected 1).
Chiaholm) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before you
some of my views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.
I have been asked what 1 mean 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 witli our
American cousins has bad tbe effect of
changing many of my views, and given
me liberal ideas, therefore I claim I am
a Libural-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that party lines are not defined iu
British Columbia as thoy are in the older
provinces, 1 consider that our representatives are hot iu duty bound to give a
through-thick-and-lhin support to any
party, but tbey should go to Ottawa prepared to give ii generous support to all
good measures which may be brought
bofore them, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, and
should a mensure come before them
which tbey consider- in any way detrimental to the interests of this Province
they should take their stand like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Turin, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we cannot produce at home can
bc obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, aud in many cases tlie 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 aud other articles are brought from the States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and are met with such heavy duties
that heads of families in this Province
pay more than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
We have had example to tlie point during the last three months. If we had
not received a good supply from California there would have been a meat
famine; as it is we are now and have
been payinjj 25 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, aud the same state of
affairs is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for the last eleven years
our stock raisers are little better prepared to meet hard winters than they
were before, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
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 udvoeate " Reciprocity"
in many articles which are at present in the Tariff lists, as I think
it would be beneficial to both
countries, and tbe working man would
not have to go down so deep into bis
pockets to buy what he needs to eat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
have a revenue to carry on the affairs of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more aud get at the pockets of the
richer classes who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to tbe 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 been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before the notice of
the House. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
been in 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 Fraser as he seems to have been
when he proposed to cut off the mail
subsidy from tbat important route, und
there ure other places in the District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider Bhould receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope thut iu tbe near future our
District will reach that noint that we
may look for it to be divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, and when the census
returns are in I think the necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation.
The protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also the works for improving
tbe channel at the Sandheads, in view
of the expected increase in our shipping
interests.
I consider the Province should have
control over all railway charters aud
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 thu cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from the mouth
of tho Serpentine to Fraser Kiver, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from the Fraser Kiver to Pert
Moody, which has often beeu suggested
to ine.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, and encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coming here fast
enough; 1 would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
There are many other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would mako
this address too long. I hope to see as
many as possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send 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 aud requirements,
therefore, Ileel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I have the honor to be elected
I assure you 1 shall watch over the interests of this District faithfully and to
the best of my ability, .not forgetting
that I also go as" a true British Columbian and to do my duty us such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.

To the Electors of New  Westminster District:
GENTLEMEN:—Having been requested by a
large number of electors of this Dislrict to oiler
myself ns a candidate to represent you In the
House nf Commons, to which request I have
much pleasure In complying, I beg tu slate that
should you do mc thu honor to elect me as your
representative wliilst giving the present Government my free and independent support, I would
do my utmost to favor tho followinu amongst
the many measures that I consider would be
beneficial to tbe Interests of this Province and
the Dominion at large.
Tu urge the further improvements of tho navigation of the Frasor and other rivers, the protection of their banks, tlie improvement of any
harbors In this District, and the construction of
canals where necessary for the purpose of
allowing farmers and others every facility to
reach market.
Tn encourage agriculture by protecting nil
sueh articles as can be produccrl lu tliis Province, and to lower duties on all that cannot,
and which are absolutely the necessaries of life,
and increase the tariff on luxuries so that the
consumer would be even taxed less than al present.
To .i.e.rea.se the representation In proportion
to the wealth aud importance of this District,
To increase and have adequate mail service to
all portions of the Province and free letter delivery in cities.
Nil diminution   in   the   Chinese  Restriction
Aet.
To havo the Fishing Regulations amended to
meet die requirement.! of this Province.
To have a Dry-Dock constructed at some suitable point on the Mainland to meet the growing
demands of this District.
To urgo the exchange of Lands in Peace Itlver
for tbe Lnnds In the Itallwav Belt;
And that Mining Machinery be admitted free
of duty until such is manufactured In tho Dominion.
To appoint efficient Immigration agents In all
Important localities.
lo urge the Dominion Government to contribute to mako Roads and Bridges through
Dominion lands.
To urge imincdlntu aid in any measure to prevent the overflowing of Dominion lands in this
Province and to reclaim those subject to inundation.
Having been a resident of this District forever
twenty years and knowing its requirements, 1
should be lu a position to advocate your Interests, nud also my having hud the honor to be
your representative for the last four years lu the
Provincial Legislature would place me lu a position of knowing something of Legislative
routine,
I hope to visit each polling station during the
canvass and mom fully explain my views on
the various topics of the day, which would be
impossible to do iu ii short address.
I have the honor to bc,
Gentlemen,
Your obedient servant,
dwmylllte WM. IL LADNER.
TO THE ELECTORS
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:-As I have nlreadv announced,
I beg to oiler mysol f as a candidate for the scat In
tlie Commons made vacant by the death of our
late member, and Iconic beforo you ns u supporter^ the Government of Sir John Macdoii-
aid, reserving to myselt, of course, the right to
net Independently should the action of tho Government In any mailer seem prejudfealto our
Interests.
1 would strongly urge immediate attention to
the improvement of the Rivor where required,
for tlie protection of tho rich agricultural lauds
of the District, and If elected, I shall nt once
proceed to Oltawa and leave no stone unturned
to secure the Immediate appointment of n
competent engineer witli n view to tho prompt
undertaking of this most Important work.
As you are aware, tbo duty ou certain kind.
of mining machinery has been remitted in this
Province aB a special concession to British Columbia on account of the speelnl condition.) obtaining here. I would strongly urge the further
application of this principle of special larit.'ur-
rungemcuts, so ns to relieve consumers of goods
which must be imported, while preserving the
protection of our agricultural and other lu
wrests.
The land laws of the Dominion, having been
framed without close consideration of our requirements, are in many points unsuitable, for
example lu the conditions as to clearing. I
would endeavor to secure Immediate reform tn
this Important matter.
Subsidies having been granted to railwa.	
the various Provinces of the Dominion, I should
urgently present the claims lo similar assistance
of railways within our own Province.
Should the City of New Westminster decide to
build a bridgo across the Fraser, I should use
my best endeavors to obtain a substantial subsidy for the work, urging that an undertaking
of this character should rank with canals and
railways as one entitled to national aid.
The next census wlll undoubtedly show such
au Increase In the wealth and population of this
District as will constitute an undeniable claim
to Increased representation In the Commons,
That claim, If elected, I shall support to the ut
most of my ability. ,
Although, with tho growth of tho District,
thu mall service has been improved and extended, it still lugs far behind our requirements.
I should give special attention to this partof
your representative's work, feeling that lt Is
one which is of vital importance.
I should urge the enactment of such fishery
regulations, especially in the Issuing of licences,
as would, without any injustice to the canneries, the Importance of which to the prosperity ol
tho District all must recognize, fully protect
the free fishermen, and encourage the settlement amongst us of the greatest possible number of that Industrious nud hardy class of men.
All enactments and regulations for tho protection of white labor would receivo my nearly
support.
Continued work towards the Improvement of
the harbors of New Westminster and Vancouver, and the efficient lighting and buoying of
the same, Is a mutter which would havo my
closest attention at nil times.
Iu a won), I should constantly urge upon the
Government tho'wisdom nf a liberal policy in
public works In this District, tho vast resources
of which make it certain thut such a policy
would bc amply justified by results.
Trusting to have tho opportunity of seeing
every eleetor before polling day,
I am, Gentlemen,
Very sincerely yours,

TO THE ELECTORS OF
New Westminster District i
GENTLEMEN:—I beg to announce myself as
an independent candidate for the Legislative
Asseuiblv at the coming election.
As most of von are aware, I am an old resident
of the District, and largely Interested In Its
growth and prosperity.
lam In favor of the division of the Dislrict
into ridings, and shall Insist upon our having
our fair share of representation, according to
our population and resources, in the Legislature,
Asthis Dislrict contributes very largely to the
revenue, it It* clearly entitled to large appropriations for public works, and substantial grants to
the various municipalities.
I am a strong advocate of a freelralllc bridge
across the Fraser al Brownsville, and should
urge that the Government subsidise that work,
and I should also pfess for the construction of a
bridge across the Pitt River.
lam utterly opposed to the Immigration of
Chinese, and their employment on public works
of any character. ,
I am strongly in favor of borrowing tho money
necessary to develop [be agricultural country by
Opening up roads along the section lines.
1 .should advocate any reasonable assistance
to a railway irom Hone down tiie south side of
the Frnser, as such a lllie would give a vast tin-
pulus to the development of our District.
If you do me tbe honor to elect me I sliall do
my best to advance our Interests' In the.se nnd
other mutters.
I am, Gentlemen,

1st. lam in favor of representation bv population and wlll consider it my lirst duty to secure a fair and Just representation for ihe Mainland.
'Jnd. I am in favor of dividing ihe District Into Ridings
Hrd. I will endeavor to Increase tbe grant to
muiiiuipalllios from f 1.0(H) to £Ukxi per annum.
4th. I would also be In favor of raising tlie tax
on wild lauds to such au extent as would prohibit speculators, from holding hi rue tracts of

a scheme for the reclamation of overflowed

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
New Westminster Distriot
GENTLEMEN:-! offer myself as a candidate
to represent you in the Provincial Legislature.
ou the platform suggested by the Mainland Association, free from any pledge to cither party,
I hold myself al liberty to give an Independent support to any Government that may bo
chosen hy Ihe people. As an elector, 1 think
the District would make a mistake should the
electors condone last session's Redistribution
Bill, by returning either the Hon. Mr. Hobson,
or modi.lulos hampered by pledges to support
his Government, as representatives of this constituency.
Mr. Robson is standing for Cariboo as well as
for Westminster Dislrict, so there is no need to
four that the Province will be deprived of his
services should the majority ot the electors
agree with me on this point.
I am in favor of dividing Westminster District
Into ridings.
Any measures thatappearlome to be for the
beuelit of tho Province would have my support,
and I think that some safe scheme might be devised by which the credit of the Province might
be lent for local improvements.
The contract system ought to be more strlotlv
carried out.
I should also like lo sec some mod III out Ion of
tho municipal system, by which  localities nut-
side of municipalities might have more direct
control of the expendllures In  their neighbor- |
hoods, ho as to secure the most economical and ,
elllcient disposal of such funds and relieve the
central Government from tbe Invidious  task of j
deciding between different claims.
■Speculation in 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, and trust you will give me
credit for honesty of purpose, even should you ;
dissent from my Judgment.
Your Obedient Servant,
(!. B. SWORD.

TO THE ELECTORS OF
New Westminster City.
numerously signed, which lias been presented to
me, I beg to oiler myself us representative of
this City In the Provincial Legislature,
I frankly confess that, aside from the great
question of tho Just distribution of legislative
power, 1 would scarcely care to be a candidate.
If you do me the honor to elect me I shall make
Hint question mv ilrsl consideration at all limes,
and In order to do this It is essential that I
keep quite free from iniv entangling alliances
wilb cither Government or Opposition. Hut to
tbe people and the advocacy of the rights of the
people, in this matter am) in all others, 1 can
lullv and freely pledge tavself; and with those,
be they on what side of ibe House tjicv may,
who arc animated by a similar spirit, 1 will work
cordially.
The present crisis demands special treatment.
We of the Lower Mainland nre denied our just
share of legislative power, ami so long as that is
the case our true policy, In mv opinion—nay,
tlie policy which our own self-respect compels iiu
lo adopt—is to return no man to the legislature
who will not make the righting of that wrong
his first business, It mav safclv be assumed
that those who shall be found willing to do
right-in this matter, wfl be (he most likely tn do
right in others also.
Notwithstanding the utmost devotion to this
firsl ijnestloii, your representative will have to
deal with many oilier mailers, and perhaps ii
will bcsullMent now to say on tbls point thut I
believe there Is room for a good deal of work before the administration of public affairs can
claim to be what it should be—govern men I by
the people/or Ihe people. 1 should earnestly en
dcavor to do my snare of that work.
I believe 1 may safely assume that you need
no assurance of my deep and abiding Interest in
everything that makes for the prosperity of New
Westminster City.
I am, Gentlemen,
Very truly yours,
diuylOle     * J. C. BROWN.

1 wish lo mil before yon tlie platform on which
1 stand whilst seeking your support.
Up lo the Introduction of the Constitution

to obtain a fair and just Redistribution Act
(minediatciii otWr the publication of the census

unce nl power and the division of districts Into
one member constituencies, outside tbls pledge
I claim the privilege of being allowed to support
any legislation of a just and beneficial nature
which may bc introduced by the Govern men I,
I will endeavor to Impress upon the Government the necessity of the utmost liberality iu
the expenditure for the opening up of all agricultural districts and even, if necessary, lo borrow money for this purpose.
Tlie conservation of all public lands for actual
setllement. and the abolition of all sates of land
lu large areas, will tie one of the chief objects 1
shall hold lu view, and to also assist In the
greatest amount of land being brought Into cultivation, f would advocate tbe Wild Laud Tax
being raised to 2b coillK'per acre,
It wltl also bc my endeavor to Impress upon
tho Government thcahsolutc necessity of taking
steps to assist iu the reclamation of thu largo
urea of land subject lo overflow bv the Fraser,
sons to render It all lit for cultivation, feeling
sure ihut any money spout in thai direction
will Ik'a good Investment, its the lands will be
greatly enhanced lu value for assessment.
From the above you will sec I stand as n sup-
