Mr. Brown's Second Meeting in the
Opera  House Last Night  a
|        Perfect Demonstration.
Twelve   Hundred   Interested   ami
Enthusiastic Citizens Literally
•Tarn the Building.
Another Splendid Speech ami Half
a Dozen Rattling: and Patriotic Addresses.
A few minutes before the time appointed for the meeting to begin, 8.15,
Mr. Brown ascended the platform of
Herring's Opera House aud said that
Mr. T. J. Trapp had been kind enough
to act as chairmnn at his last meeting,
and bc bad discharged the duties of
tlmt occasion ho welt that lie (the
speaker) thought he could not dn lietter
than to reouest him to act iu the eapn-
'■•iy again.   ..\ppiause.)
Mr. Trapp said he was pleased to see
such a targe audience present (the
house was literally packed to sulfoea-
tion, gallery and passages iuclitded),and
be hoped a fair and patient hearing
would bu given nil who would speak.
He was glad to see Mr. Cunningham
there, aud bespoke the same attention
for him as for Mr. Brown.
Mr. Brown, on rising, was greeted
I with long-continued and enthusiastic ap-
1 plattse. He said that he would have to
make a little apology in advance. Four
days ago he had no idea that he would
be called upon to address a meeting in
the Opera House that night, as he was
down to speak nt Sapperton that night
to tho electors there, out his committee
had come to the conclusion that it would
be well for him to address the electors
of the City once more and if he were not
up to the mark on this occasion or if
they found him dull or prosy he would
beg them to remember that it was because he had just come from making a
speech at Sapperton. He had beeu
travelling about a good deal of late and ho
waa surprised that the showers we had
beon having lately had not produced
more fresh green tint, the whole landscape seemed to have a sort of JJ.-om.ji
tinge (roars of laughter). At the
last meeting he had held he
wont into the general platform
of the independents at considerable
length aud he did not want to go over
that ground again and would avoid the
questions he had dealt with then, as
much as possible. But there was one
subject that hnd been touched on the
last time he hnd the pleasure of addressing tbo electors, and that was the Mechanics' Lien Act. (Applause.) In respect to his political position, notwithstanding all that had been snid to the
contrary, lie stood in exactly the same
position as when he came out and he
meant to maintain that position as he
did not like being forced into a position
he did not wish to occupy. He was a
member of the Independent party of
this Province. It had beon urged that
the Independents, when they did get to
the House, would be of no account because of the paucity of their members,
and would be able to accomplish little
or nothing there. There was certainly
a good deal in that argument when
a large and numerous House was
meant, which had well-defined party
lines, and both powerful. A small inde-
1 pendent party standing up between two
such large parties would be sure to find
its efforts useless, as the two parties
would grind up the independent party
between them. But no such condition
of affairs exists here. The House here
consists of only 33 members, a littlo too
large for tho Province, ho should say,
and there were no party lines, nnd of the
16 men running on the Independent
platform a good majority would be
elected to the House. It waB a big difference where there wero 30 or 40 members in one party alone compared with a
total legislative strength of 33, and he
confidently thought tho Independent
Sirty in this case would control the
overnment to a wholesome extent.
! The Victoria Times had published an
' article regarding Mr. Keith,of Nanaimo,
the only Independent candidate elected
so far, and had headed the
article, "First Blood for the Opposition," claiming Mr. Keith as an
Opposition member. Mr. Keith, however, had repudiated thia assertion in a
communication which the speaker then
read. Tlie Times then turned round and
called Mr. Keith au Independent Government man, but he said he was neither one
nor the other, but a solid Independent.
The platform of the Nanaimo representative contained every plank of* the Independent platform. He would ask
thom to examine what record the Independent party had. .Many might laugh
at the idea of the party having a record
before it was elected to the House. But
|ust exactly on tho principal that "coming events cast their shadows before" he
could satisfactorily slmw them that the
Independent party had a record. When
tho delegation from the Mainland Association went to Victoria the Government
was decidedly stiff in their treatment of
them. They were cold and haughty,
but how greatly that has changed; we
have quite a differont tone now compared with the attempt to make a tempest
in a teapot out of the matters then. And
the Independent pnrty can claim it as a
part of its record that this altered tone
on tho part of the Government was
brought nbout by thom.   (Applause).
Then to come to the Lien Law, everyone knew that the legal member of the
Government threw himself dead against
it nt first and tried his utmost to prevent
its amendment. Thon the next thing
we hoar is that he is willing nnd ready
to do anything to amend it and was willing to give the Province any lien law It
treated, but it has certainly not got what
it deserved. Look at its growth and
development, and consider what the
Government has done nnd it would
easily be seen how little cause there
was tor the cry of goodness.
Coming to tne school question, Mr.
Brown said that there waa a considerable amount of ground for complaint on
this matter. The total amount paid to
the public school teachers in this city
was 1680 a month. The same class and
number of teachers in Victoria received
$840 a month, a difference of $160 per
month in favor of Victoria, nnd $1,920
per year. Why was this? He did not
think it was because the teachers were
less competent, or that their work was
lighter. He could not understand the
matter at all, nor why this discrimination waa made against New Westminster. Many of the scholars from Westminster schools had gone out aud made
a name for themselves in the universities and other institutions of learning of
the Dominion.   [Cheers and applause.]
On the subject of general appropriations he had not gone iuto figures, but
he quoted his facta as obtained from a
gentleman who had a right to lie accounted a good authority ou the subject
—who wns the confidential friend of the
Government, and was no leas a person-
iria9i\eVrl,1Th"B\.Sl,"^,ng.hi,.'!.(r,i",™
Cunningham had said that Westminster
District got the smallest appropriations
of any District in tho Province; ho had
made this statement seven mouths ago
ou the public platform when running
for the Legislature. But how comes it
that he now talks so much nbout the
Government's goodness? | applause].
Maybe ho was standing on one log then
and is now resting on t'other '
view the Government, but Mr. Cunningham kindly fathered the whole expedition and took us all under his wing
and was a most prominent member ol
the party. Next day Mr. Cunningham
promised himself and his constituents,
body and  bones, if  the Government
would only give Westminster City an
other member, ignoring the injustice
that had been done to tlie District and
to Vancouver [great laughter |. Vancouver returned a noble reply to the
proffered bribe of the Government,
which was in strong contrast with Mr.
Cunningham's conduct in this matter.
The Premier said ample pledges had
been given to the delegation, aud Mr.
Cunningham now profecsed to be satisfied with these pledges—why, then, was
he not satisfied at the time? if the
pledges were given to the delegation he
must havo heard them, for he was there j
yet he went iuto Opposition and has told
us that he finished the session us au
Opposition member. Yet he comes forward now  as a  straight Government
Call and Examine Our Lists.

wanted. (Laughter.) TVuf/f had made
itself at least amusing by quoting the
Prime Minister's address regarding redistribution, and calling it the most explicit
pledge that could be given. The argument to be deduced from the statements
made by Truth was that the Government had mnde certain statements,
which it bad soon fit to contradict at r
later date. The delegates said the same
thing; whon they wero at Victoria there
was no promise made regarding the abolition of the balance of power, and that
wns the main thing.
He did not wish to attack Mr. Hobson
at all. He did not think that it would
become him to stand up thero and personally attack Mr. Bobson, as his age
and position would make such an attack reprehensible. But it was Mr.
Hobson that raised the queation of veracity, not the Mainland delegation. The
Government hnd their own shorthand
reporter down thero, and his report
showed that an attempt had been made
to extort a promise from them, but unsuccessfully.
A great deal of capital  bad been at-
¥	
idn_.
ai nl and
Mainland
tempted to be mnde out of the alleged
goodness of the Government to th
Mr. Hobson had asked the
Delegation what they were
grumbling about, and the reply that had
beon mado to him that their rights as
free members of the community* had
been denied them; that thoy did not
get the same justice as the other parts
of tho Provinco. (Great applause). So
thore waa, after all, not much In the
supposed goodness of the Government to
this District. He did not pretend to say
that the District had been  very badly
[roars of
lighter and great cheering],
Mr. Brown, referring again to the
Lieu law, said he had heen ao often misrepresented on this matter tbat he would
have to speak vory cautiously on it. Mr.
Cunningham had promised to spend a
whole night with the workingmen explaining this act (a loud voice, "Good
Lord deliver us," and roars of laughter).
The time was short now, but perhaps he
would do it to-morrow night. Mr. Cnn-.
ningham changed hia ground so often it
was something like the thimble-rig business, when you thought you had him
Bure, he wasn't there at all (roars of
laughter, confusion and applause). He
(the speaker) would, therefore, try to
take Mr. Cunningham's placo and give
his opinions on the matter. The Lien
Law was n most important subject to
every member of the community, no
matter who he is. It was a bar to* discord in a community, to say nothing of
the fact that it guarded the working
man from being deprived of his means
of livelihood.
In other ways also the Lien Law was
of very great importance, for although
it may not personally effect ub nt all, wo
should recognize in it a means of doing
even-handed justice to our fellow men,
and it is quite possible, on account of
our carelessness, neglect or indifference
in the matter, that we might bring ourselves within the reach of thnt curse
against those who "grind the faces of
the poor." (Hearty applause). Mr.
Cunningham said that the Lien Act as
now amended compares favorably well
with any he haa Been, aud in the next
breath he declares himself willing to
substitute the Ontario Act. If the Lien
Act was good enough, there could be no
object in substituting tho Ontario Act.
(Applause).
Mr. Cunningham was always very
fond of talking about having the confidence of the Government. Let us see
what a prominent.member of the Government, whose confidence he is so sure
he has, said about him when he hnd
been speaking about this very net. Mr.
Brown read from The Comjmiiian.
"Hou. Mr, Pooley rose in some agitation
and said that whnt Sir. Cunningham
had juat said waa 'utter rubbish, utter
rubbish,' and that the hon. gentleman
evidently did not know what lie was
talking "about." He (the speaker)
would not liko to Bay quite so much ns
that, but that ia what Mr. Pooley, Mr.
Cunningham's confidential friend, said
about him. (Great laughter and np<
plattse.)
The Lien Law requires a man to make
a very full affidavit, including several i
things thnt are not essential, and thus
sets up a fruitful cause of failure to obtain the just rights of the working man.
Mr. Cunningham's amendment had not
j attempted to cure this, indeed section 5
of tho amendment specially ordered
that the lien was to bo thrown out, however just it might be. if there was any
mistake in the statements. Mr. Cunningham's amendment professed to provide a remedy (which was much needed) in the case of contracts taken too
low; but it killed itself by providing
that this remedy could not be applied
unless conspiracy between owner aud
contractor to cheat possible lieu holders
could be proved; and he need not say
that such proof could not lie produced
once in a thousand cases. The speaker
then showed that section 0 of* Mr. Cunningham's amendment practically left
nothing for the working man to got a
lien upon. It gavo such sweeping privi-
ledges to suppliers of material that, ns a
working man had said to him that day,
"it did not leave a chip for the working
man to attach."  [Applause.]
Mr. Cunningham went into that
House without having studied the lien
law, and the lawyers down there just
doubled him up nnd pitched him in a
corner. [Roars of laughter and applause. ]
He would now turn to campaign literature', and briefly referred to a letter
signed Ottoway iu a recent issue of a
paper known as Truth. In this communication he waa accused of apathy;
he did not think he had ever heen noted
for being apathetic. Mr. Ottoway aaid
he had shown apathy in not having receiving letter-boxes placed around town.
But tikis letter-box matter happened
last year, when he was not mayor or
even dreamed of being mayor, yet Mr.
Ottoway was now trying to make a point
against him by making it appear that
he was mayor at the time. He had
taken all the trouble he could to forward
the letter-box matter. The department
is a large one and such things cannot be
dono in a day; tho boxes would be here
In good time, as nothing had been left
undone in the way ol arranging for
their delivery horo as early as possible
If this campaign continued a woek
longer he would begin to get vain, as
his opponents had begun to tell as many
whoppers about him as if ho were the
leader of the Opposition. [Laughter].
So lie had begun to think he was somebody. The Times had corrected him In
one statement, and he would retract it
on seeing his mistake. The Colonist
also had Fallen foul of him savagely and
made a terrible fuaa over a matter in
which it was entirely mistaken. The
Prime Minister was nlso favoring him
with a considerable amount of attention
just now and it was really very flattering indeed. He must be somebody or
the honorable gentleman would not do
It. [Laughter]. He [the speaker] had
been informed by ono of Mr. Robson's
supporters that that gentleman had told
hiin If he could not support Cunningham
not to support Brown, "Why?" enquired the supporter "Well, you see"
said Mr. Robson, "I can work with Cunningham hut I can't work with Brown."
[Great Laughter.l But ho might bo
permitted to tack on a littlo amendment
to that speech, namely the knocking out
of "with1'in both sentences, making it
read, "I can work Cunningham but I
can't work Brown." |Great uproar of
laughter and cheering, and a voice,
"Tommy mako room for your undo,
and renewed roars of laughter,'
ft hen the* Premier was here, some
timeago, addressing tbe public of this
city, he never bestowed a smile or a nod
im Mr. Cunningham during the whole
of that solemn function (laughter). But
tho Prime Minister has now put himself forward as Mr. Cnniiingbniii's po-
iui....i MW/ hi tid iter), ... .
Hon. Air, Kofison had taken occasion
to refer to him as "a young and budding politician;" he would return the
compliment and refer to Mr. Robson as
"an old and knotty politician" (great
laughter and applause). Mr. Robson
had come to the election <if this District
with certain things iu one hand, and he
has told them tbat if they do certain
things they will get them, and tbey will
not get them if thoy, don't. How dare
Mr. Robson stand up nud say we shall
not have that which belongs to us?
(Tumultuous appjattse.) In the other
band he has certain things which do not
belong to us nnd he Bays that if we do
certain things at hia bidding they shall
be ours. But how dare Sir. Robson
stand up nnd attempt to bribe us with
what belongs to another part of the
Province? (Wild applause and great
iheering.)
'-""It is a kind of "shut your eyes and
open your month nnd see what tlie fates
will send you" arrangement (great
laughter). Mr. Brown, in concluding,
suid this election wus not a more
choice of men, but the first
battle in the struggle for liberty
and justice, and he appealed to them
all to go to tho polls on Friday nnd cast
their ballot for the right side. [Great
cheering- and applause rewarded Mr.
Brown's masterly effort.]
Mr. Cunningham then ascended the
platform amid a perfect tornado of
cheers, hisses, booting and groans. lie
said he was not going to make a speech
then [applause], but would be glad to
see them all there next night, when he
would fully unfold his views. He
would like to address them at once for
an hour and a half [laughter, and a
wholesale removal toward the door by
half the audience], but would reserve
his finest efforts for next evening.
[Laughter and applause.]
Mr. Thomas 'lurnbull then made a
rattling speech, in which he.clenrly
nailed Mr. Cunningham in a misstatement, to the iutonse glee of the audience. He made a very telling speech,
winding up by asking his fellow-workmen to go to the polls on Friday and
vote for liberty and justice

lashed on the poop. After the hurricane a bard gale, with terrific squalls,
continued for thirty-six hours. All this
time nothing could be cooked,
as it was impossible to get
along the deck, aud the galley utensils and lockers were
all smashed. The pig-sty was
washed away and the poop ladder and
rails on tbe port side smashed. The
chart houae door was broken in, and
two bulwark ports were knocked into
one. The weather finally moderated
somewhat, but from then an gales,
squalla and heavy seas were experienced.
The log closes as follows: "If the ship
had not been strong and substantial we
would not be alive to tell the tale."

'Albuquerque,, N.M., June 11.—A
Chinese detective is iu the City, His
mission is to arrest a Chinaman who,
four years ago, com mitled a murder in
China, tho details of which were the
most blood-curdling and horrible ever
known iu the criminal history of the
Celestial empire. The murderer's name
is Foo Choo. He was enamored of a
Chinese maiden named Nankeen, but
Pan Yan, her father, objected to the
attentions of Foo Choo and insisted on
Nankeen marrying another. Nankeen
demurred, however, but her parent insisted and Nankeen became a bride.
The marriage was performed with all the
pomp aud ceremony usual in a well-to-do
Chinese family. That night Foo
Choo stole into their apartments and after binding and gagging his victims,
bo deliberately murdered them by
inches. He first cut off the fingers of
the bride's hands, then her toes, then
dismembered her body and finally severed her head from the trunk. The.
groom was treated to a like fate and then
the murderer fled. The crime was not
discovered until three days afterwards,
when a couple are married in China,

his escape, going from' China to Australia. The Emperor offered a large reward for his apprehension, and during
the past three years the detective now
in the city hus been hunting him. The
detective "has travelled all over the
western States and is now making a careful search of Mexico, aB he believes the
long-hunted Foo is in this territory running a laundry, und there is reason to
believe thnt he will be arrested in a few
days.

large strip of country was devastated.
The reports intimate that the Hat of

most of the damage dono by the storm
was in the country around Channahon,
and thnt the majority of the casualties
occurred outside the town. Although
the place is not fnr from here there Ib
little hope of getting any definite information, owing to the bad condition of

belief is prevalent that a great disaster
has occurred. At midnight nothing had

That the entire Opposition ticket will

slble—it is very probable. All the Government party concede two to the Opposition, while some nre honest enough
to admit that in their opinion three will
bo elected. Wo believe four will be returned and that too by very decisive
majorities. Mr. Turner is the only
Government candidate who will poll a
respootablo vote, and ho will be beaten
by nt least one hundred. Mr. Wilson,
the Independent candidate, will run
woll, but, hotwoen the two stools ho will
como to the ground, The temper of
Victoria is unmistakably hostile to the
Government-—Times.

THE DECISIVE BATTLE.
The short, sharp campaign which the
Government forced so precipitately upon
the people, for its own advantage, has
drawn nearly to a close, and silently,
sternly, the opposing phalanxes are
closing up their ranks and preparing for
the final struggle to-morrow, towards
which the last five or six weeks' events
have been steadily hastening. Tbe two
foreeB, their respective causes, their speoial characteristics, their uniforms, their
battle cries, need not bc enlarged on
hero. Theso particulars nearly everyone linn inaumu tnmiiinr with. Tbey
have nil been exposed daily throughout
the campaign. The watchword that is
passed around tbe Government ranks is
"Expediency!" That which stimulates
the Independent hosts is "Principle!"
The same forces have boen arrayed before on many an historic Held. The
same forces are continually contending for all the ground that
is lost or won in the physical as well sb
the moral sphere. Electors, the issues
have been put clearly before you. Go
to the polls, to-morrow, with the-calm
confidence of a righteous cause and certain victory all along the line, and cast
your ballots for Principle, and banish
the baleful ursuper, Expediency, from
these fair realms forever. If you do your
duty manfully, as certain ns the morrow's sun shall riso, it shall set on bis
fleeing nnd disordered hosts.
THE COLONIST'S APPEAL.
In an article on tho redistribution
question some weeks ago we made uso
of an expression to this effect: That the
present campaign had developed the
very amusing spectacle of two district
sets of Government pledges, one for the
Mainland and the other for the Island.
Our pledge, it is true, referring to the
redistribution question, is rather indefinite and unsatisfactory, and our Island
friends do not seem to have any "signed,
" sealed and delivered" covenant to fall
back upon, but there is every evidence
-that they have a tacitly understood and
teunciously held compact with the Gov-
eminent, that tbe very thing tbe Pre- J
inier tells the Maiulanders he and his
Government arc pledged to abolish—
vis., the "balance of power," or the Is^
land's undue representation in the
House—will not be abolished, but will
be "resolutely" maintained "in the
" future."'
In support of this view of the case,
and ns showing the utter worthlessness
of any conditional pledges that have
been given on the Mainland, nnd the
mad folly of reposing in them, wo will
quote from nn editorial in tbe Colonist,
the chief Government organ, of yesterday, in which the writer appeals to the
electors of the Capital city to return the
Government candidates, and why? We
shall see:
On the Mainland, were it not for the
Redistribution Act, the opponents of
the administration would be literally
without a grievance. But here in Victoria and on the Island generally that
law is a matter to give the Government
credit for and not a thing to complain
'    There is really nothing that the Qov-
and misleading are all emergency election pledges. You must now be convinced that, bo far from the Government
being pledged to dp away with the sectional line in redistribution after the
census, it is held in chains to "resolutely" perpetuate it "in the future." You
must realize that your only hope—the
only hope of the Mainland—the only
hope of good Government and just
measures for the Province—is to return
the Independent men to shatter the
accursed compact that even the Colonist should blush to mention, namely, to
rob and defraud one section of the Province to aggrandize and pamper another.
Let your ballots to-morrow prove that
you are free men in spirit, and intend to
wrest your righta and liberties, now
denied you, from an arrogant tyranny's
ruthless grasp.
HOW TO VOTE.
On Friday [to-morrow] the electors of
the whole Province will be called upon
to seal their choice at the ballot box of
the candidates who they wish to represent them in the next Provincial Parliament. Tho occasion is an important
—a critical—a momentous—one. Good
men, able men, independent and patriotic men, in spirit "as well as In word,
should be chosen. Let the cleetora of
the Lower Mainland, particularly, remember that their only safe and self-
respecting course is to return absolutely independent men, and Bitch arc beam? tv.u_.. i» ibo Ttuiuur. constituencies.
In New Westminater City, Mayor
Brown iB the Independent, People's candidate, and Mr. Thos. Cunningham la
the candidate of the . Government.
Every patriotic elector of this City who
comprehends the real situation of affairs
in the Province, and has a proper appreciation of hia responsibility in the
exercise of the sacred right of the franchise, will mark his ballot as follows:
POEM OP BALLOT l'AI'EK.
Voters'   Reglsterj
No.

IS
BROWN.
(John C. Brown, of New   X
West'r., Postmaster.)
CUNNINGHAM.
(Thomas Cunningham,

Horticulturist.)
The voter will then fold the ballot
paper across so as to conceal the names
of the candidates, etc., and, in the presence of the presiding officer, put the
paper into the ballot box, and, in the
somewhat peremptory words of the net,
" forthwith quit the polling station,"
and {if he haB marked his ballot paper
as above] go home with a cleur conscience, get his supper, and get down town
in time to hurrah over the result.
Every electorshould see to it, though,
that he votes as early in the day as possible, so as to be sure nnd not get crowded off the track; and it ia to be hoped,
for the credit of our fair Oity, that every
name on the register will be polled.

erument could do for Victoria that it has
not done.   It has done all that could
BE EXPECTED OP IT TO MAINTAIN VICTORIA'S COMMERCIAL SUPREMACY AND TO
KEEP IT THE CENTltE OF POLITICAL AS WELL
AS OP COMMERCIAL ACTIVITY.
The italics, etc., above are ours, but we
ask our readers, are not the sentiments
pretty rich? "Cheeky and monstrous,"
perhaps, to quote the Premier's elegant
diction, is the best way to characterize
the Colonist's cool appropriation for
Victoria and the Island of benefits which
it cxultingly boasts, in effect, the Government has secured for it, nt the expense of other sections of the Province.
And atill we hear audi stuff as Westminster District getting the lion's share,
etc., when certain politicians find it
convenient to say sol But the Colonist
says much mote iu this snmc strain:
There arc signs that no intelligent
citizen of Victoria can shut his eyes to
that the dny is not far distant when thiB
city will have to contend stoutly and determinedly for tbo advantages *she enjoys * * * Tbe citizem. of Victoria
believe that the Government has done
right in maintaining the proportion of
representation between the Island and
the Mainland. They know that it has
incurred the hitter opposition of thousands on the Mainland who wore on
all other questions favorable to its policy,
why then Bhould they not support the
Government, which, besides having
treated thom not only fnirly but liberally in all other respects, haa made
sacrifices and run great risks in order to
retain for thom the influence in
the Legislature which they have
hitherto enjoyed and exercised?
This Island, if it does right,
if it does what its interests plainly dictate, will send a solid contingent to support the Government which, in the face
of a very strong Opposition, has done so
much to do them justice nnd to preserve
their rights. Victoria, which has moat
to lose by the changes which the opponents of tbe Government have in
view, should set the example to tho
other Island constituencies. Its citizens
should sink personal likings and oven
political predilections to support the
Government -which has done justice to
them in the past, and which will, if properly SUPPORTED, RESOLUTELY HTAND BY
THEM IN TIIE FUTURE.
To the words which we have last emphasized we would call particular attention. The Colonist, the Victoria Government organ, promises the electors of
Victoria and of the Island tbnt, If tho
Government is strong enough in the
next House, it will "resolutely stand by"
its redistribution policy of Inst session I
We are not surprised to hear thia: The
Colonist corroborates just what we havo
been telling the electors of the Lower
JJainland for the last month or two,
Electors of Westminster, do you soo
the battle that is bofore you for your
simple rights, for the rights of the Mainland, against Island greed, against Island arrogance, against cool Island impudence?  You must  see how hollow

CORRESPONDENCE.
A LETTEH TO  THE ELECTORS.
Gentlemen- :—He who asks me to vote
for a supporter of the present Government insults me, for 1 think tlmt any
one in this city who supports the party
that perpetrated the late outniRe in the
matter of parliamentary representation, is not fit to be enfranchised; he
has the soul of a crouching slave, not
the spirit of a freeman. In this nineteenth century, only madmen and ty
rants speak lightly of or triile with this
matter. I am, therefore, not at all astonished nt the furious indignation that
was excited in Vancouver when the man
that dared to bring forth such a measure
showed his face in that city. Many of
its inhabitants camo from parts of the
world_ where the people are so jealous
of their rights that a similar legislative
enactment would produce scenes of riot
and bloodshed. This nefarious Redistribution Act involves the principle of
taxation without proper representation
—a principle which caused that cruel,
unnatural and sanguinary war, that
raged for eight years on the shores of
the New World, and sowed tho seeds of
strife that have germinated, aud now,
after a hundred years of growth, arc
ripening to another harvest of blood on
the iron-bound coast of Alaska. Talk
not to me of pledges wiuug from thoso
who would trample on tho dearest rights
of freemen. Trust not to the promises
of petty tyrants.
The Government is pledged to redress
this wrong, say those who advocate the
re-election of our late representative.
Well, if there is a pledge, aud if it be of
any value, who extorted it from our reluctant legislators ? Not our late member, nsBuredlv; for when he asked for
i' guarantee that a just distribution bill
would be brought m, on condition of
our "bearing patiently" the injustice
done us by the present one, he was
grossly insulted, and his constituents
through him, by the man ou whom he
now fawns. "Vou speak like a child"
was the insolent and brutal reply of the
Premier to his obsequious friend and
admirer. On account of the way he
dealt with this retort, I charge Thomas
Cunningham, Esq., with cowardice
at the most important crisis in his
political history. He should have given
up his whining, sniveling cant about his
thirty years' friendship for tho Premier,
and forgetting self, his words should
have assumed the tone of authority, as
in the name of the eternal principle of
right, he demanded justice. At this
time no man ever had a bettor opportunity of rising in tbe esteem of his fellows, but he was not equal to the occasion. He had been paving tbe way for
his downfall by fulsome eulogies on a
corrupt Government; aud he fell, never
to rise again; and ever since his fall, he
has been gradually losing the little respect his feilow-cittzens may still have
for him, by offering apologies for the
conduct or thoso who grossly insulted
him, and disregarded the most sacred
rights of the people lie represented.
Fellow-citizens, and 1 might add,
electors of New Westminster District, if
you think there is a pledge given that
justice will be shortly done in the matter of our representation,. itEMEsniEH
WHEN YOU ARE ABOUT TO CAST YOUR UAL-
L0T, THAT IT 1VAS TIIE MEN Of THE INDEPENDENT PARTY WHO fORCEl* THE GOVERNMENT TO GIVE THAT   t'l.EfiGE.    TllCSe
are they who deserve our support, and
through them alone we may reasonably
hope for redress of wrongs." In the hour
of our extreme need, when the battle
for otir rights was maintained, against
fearful oddB, where was the renegade
officer who now desires to lead the Koyal i
city division of the Mainland hosts ? He ]
was not in the thickest of the light, he
was not even in the field to bear away j
the torn and dust-soiled banner horn j
the scene of conflict, so that he might
be able to write to the dwellers by the
Fraser that "Ml was lost save honor,"
""So! he was ensconced in the corner of a
hotel, probably within the hearing of
chattering womon or garrulous children.
It is, therefore, not to the Government supporter we are indebted for any
concessions or promises of redress. It
is to the Independents. At their head
stands a man of unimpeachable character—a gentleman who lias a superior
education, and who is the most eloquent
and polished speaker of all those seeking election in our Province, ns well as
one of the most talented men in the
Dominion. It waB/it's keen logic that
first brought the members of the Government to their senses nud covered
them with shame and confusion of fnce.
Before his clear and incisive syllogisms,
and winged words, the ilne-spuu fallacies of the Premier seemed as weak as
the cords thnt bound the Philistine
man-stayer. He it was that rallied the
flying squadrons of the Mainland hosts
aud infused new courage into their disordered ranks. The tyrant now trembles in his citadel, for the Independent
army is now within two day's march of
the enemy's fort, which they will easily
take by storm, nnd then a universal
shout of victory shall go up from the
Royal City, and the banks of the old
Frnser shall re-echo the honored name
of Brown!
I sincerely believe that tbe hope of
the country lies in the Independents.
The most advanced thinkers see no
other way of reforming corrupt governments than by electing men to support
measures, not parties. Indeed, I believe
that the only chance of redeeming the
electorate of this Province from hopeless corruption is through n new pnrty
whose watchword shall be "Justice to
all—to friend mid foe." It ia enough to
make all honest men grow sick at heart
and despair of political purity, when
they hear the Premier of this Province
uublushingly sny tbnt the whole business of the country is carried ou in a
secret conclave of his friends, nnd that
the representatives of the people in Parliament assembled, arc powerless to
change the decisions and arrangements
of a corrupt (I wns about to sny .torn..-
able) caucus.
But apart from these considerations;
I cannot see how any  honest man can
support the Government candidates, for
I believe that the man who is influenced bg
the motives they use to induce him to vote
for ihem, is a thief at heart.   Ho who
sincerely promises me, tbnt if I support
the Government, my fellow-citizen., and
I shall receive the "lion's share of the
appropriations," or more than our just
share, Is n thief at heart, for he intends
to take the money thut justly bolongs to
people in another part of tbe Province
ana givo it to us.   We also aro parties
to a theft, if we knowingly and willingly
receive it.   He also who threatens not
to give my fellow-citizens and me our
just share of the appropriations, if we
vote against the Government, is also a
thief at heart; for he likewise intends
to take the money that belongs to us
nnd give it to his friends.
,  ..And these are the dotestnble motives
L used by men calling themselves by the
T name of Christian to induce tho electors
Ito support a Government thnt hns been
I guilty of the most flagrant aet of hijus-
I tice to this section of the country.
I   Fellow electors, if one spark of true
[manhood still gows within you, or if
1 you have faith in the  final triumph of
| righteous rule upon tho earth, reject
I with scorn the man who tells you he Is
F "In the confidence of the Government,"
and by means of either promises or
threats approaches you as If you were a
, thief or a villanous pick-pocket, who
wanted more than your just share of tho
public revenue.   Vote for the men who
are pledged to principle, not policy, and
whose political platform is justice, liberty, equality and justice to all.—Com.

MOTHERS  IN'FICTION.
Chiefly Conspicuous by Their Abienct and
Not Always Admirable.
A vigorous search has rocently been
made in novels for the admirable mother
in Action, and it gave the searchers a
shock that she failed to materialize.
The father, the brother, sister, cousins,
aunts and even grandmother, are often
drawn with a loving pencil, but the
mother is always a subordinate character if introduced at all.
Perhaps because his own mother was
so unsatisfactory Dickens never put one
in a novel of his that deserves to be
mentioned in connection with his benign father*.   Here is the list:
"Our Mutual Friend"—Mrs. Witter.
(outrageous).
"Dombey and Son"—Mrs. Skewton (a
libel on the sex).
David Coppcrfiold's mother is an
amiable fool; Mrs. Steerforth impossible
and horrible; Mrs. Heop a mate for her
husband; Mrs. Mioawber a caricature
In "Bleak House"—Lady Dedlock a
mother who abandoned hor ohild; Mrs.
Jollyhy one who neglected her children
for a hobby.
In "Tho Tale of Two Cities" the
mother dies boforo the story begins.
Thon thoro in Mrs. Coleman (a oriui-
tnnl). Mrs. Merdlo and Mrs. Gowan
(worldly),.and Mrs. Meagles (nicobut
weal:-minded in "Little Dorrit"). Dlok-
em." i lothers nro all objectionable.
Thackeray's only concession is Mrs.
Pondonnis. Mrs. Edmonds1 maternal
qualities aro not strong.
Who ilncs not love tho gentle Vioarof
Wakefield and his homely, tender
philosophy? Mis gentleness is illus-
traloil by Ids constant excuses for bin
nojTglng wife.
Georgo Eliot ignores mothers. Mrs.
Poypor in the most successful, but sho
comes of the lower order. Mrs. Harleth
nml hor wliolo family are ruled hy
Gwendoline. Sirs. Tulllver and Mrs.
Deano in "The Mill on tho Floss" are
almost imbecile. Tho wonder is that
tbey had Bitch ronmrkablo children,
Jane Eyre has two thoroughly cruel
and offensive. Lady Ingram and Mrs.
Rood.
Pi si stratus' mother in Bulwer
Lyttnn's novel, "Tho Caxtons," is a ton-
dor and loving woman—an exception to
tho rule. Charles Reade has ono re-
spoctablo mother, Mrs. Littlo ("Put
Yourself in His Placo"), but Wilkie Collins falls in with the custom very naturally.
Oulda's mothers are noarly all detestable.
Robert Elsmoro is the ono exception, Tho tiresome hero of that novel
would have dono woll to have been endowed with his mother's intellect,
cheorf ulness and vigor. But interesting
as she is, her matornal influence did
not go far. Amolie Rives haa a cruel
and heartless mother in "Tho Witness
of lho Sun," who sacrifices her son's
happiness to satisfy her selfish pnBsion.
In .Mrs. Cafcherwood's stories tho mother
is conspicuously absent. And so on and
so on indefinitely.
COUNT  ZICHY>S  JOKE.
How a Hunsnrl in Nobleman Outwitted a
Vienna Cimtbmft Officer.
Tbo famous Hungarian, Count Zlchy,
who lived on a princely income In
Vienna, was, in his younger days, woll
known all over Europo on account of tho
bets he mado and generally won. Once,
when thoro was a heavy duty imposed
on every bend of cattle entering the
Austrian capital, he mnde a bet that be
would carry a lamb duty-free through
the trato of Vienna, and that the gatekeeper, who acts as imperial officer, ad-
justlng and receiving tho duty, would be
glad Lo let; him pass.
Noxt morning, the Count, disguised in
tho olothes of a butcher, his butcher-
knife in his hand, his shirt slocves rolled
up, und carrying a heavy sack on his
shoulder, made Ida way to one of tho
fasliionablo gates of Vienna, says tho
New York Lodgor. But the watchful
officer soon ospied him.
"What havo you in thnt sack, fellow?"
"A dog, sir."
"A dog? Dog yourself! Down with
that sack! I know fellows like you
sometimes carry dogs in sacks through
tho gates, nnd sell them for mutton In
town.   Down with your sack!"
"But it's nothing but a dog, and a bad
dog, too.   I will—"
"Nevor mind what yon will, Down
with your sack!"
Tho «Ulcer pulled the sack from the
supposed butcher's shoulder, cut the
string, and suro enough, out jumped ono
of tho biggest dogs In Vienna. The dog
rushed against tho faithful Government
servant, landed him several steps away
in thu gutter, and then left for parts unknown. After him went tho young
butcher, shaking his big knife before
tbo oyes of tbo frightened officer, and
exclaiming:
"1*11 settlo you after Icatoh that dog!"
About two hours afterword, the faco of
tho butcher again appeared beforo the
raised window of tbe gate-office.
"I have just caught that dog again.
Would you like to look at him?"
'"Getaway! Get out, you and your infernal dog!" And with a crash the window wont down, and tho smiling butcher
entered Vienna.
But no dog was that timo in his sack,
but the fattest lamb tbat could be found
in the suburbs of tho capital.

—Mrs. Brown—"You told mo that if
I left my tablecloth out ull night tbe
fruit stains would disappear, Well, I
put. It put last night." Mrs. Jones—"Of
course tho stains wero gono In the
morning?" Mrs. Brown—"Yes, so was
tho tablecloth."
—'is tbat ii Lundsoor, Mr. Croesus?"
asked thu visitor, pausing beforo the
painting. "No," replied tho host;
"Beckon it is a Durham. Seo how
broad it is between tho horns, and see
tho color and curl on its forohoad.
That's a gonulno Durham, suro."—
Salem Gazette.
—They had chicken for dinner, and
tbe host said to the guest: "Didn't I
hear you say that you liked tho neck of
tho chicken best?" Tho visitor, who
liked tho neck with somo of the rest,
said: "Yos." "Woll, you shall hove
both of these nocks," and tbat was all
ho got.—Christian Advocate

The canvass of the District ended last
night with the Maple Ridge meeting,
and it Ib conceded that the Independent
ticket, MeBBrs. Sword, Punch and Kitchen, will he returned by a large majority.
Should all of Mr. Robson's friends
"plump" for him he may be elected,
but if the Government ticket is strictly
adhered to by its friends bis defeat is
certain. Nothing but plumping can
save him. Maple Ridge will return the
Independents by a very large majority,
bo will Langley; nnd last night the free
electors of Langley Prairie decided unanimously to support the ticket. Well
done, Langley Prairie! Our cotemporary,
Truth, says four-fifths of the ballots at
Chilliwack will be cast for the Hon. Mr.
Robson. Watch the result of to-morrow's polling, and it will then be seen
how utterly unworthy of credence this
statement is. Ladners will give the
Government candidates a good support,
but outside of that it will have few majorities. At least fifteen of the polling
places will give majorities to tbe Independent ticket. Note this forecast and
compare it with the returns when they
come  in.    Victory is hurk.
JB^Beware the furtive campaign lie
which the unscrupulous "other side"
will endeavor to spring at the last mo-

A Happy Event.
Aii exceedingly interesting nnd happy
event, took place yesterday afternoon,
when the occupants of a neat little cot-
taut on Agnes Btreet were all in a flurry,
it being the occasion of the marriage of
Mr. A. W. Ross, the genial proprietor of
tbe West End Shoe Store, to Miss Maggie Wilson, a charming young lady, who
arrived from Shawville, Que., on Tuesday last, after having travelled nearly
3,000 miles to meet her intended husband. The Rev. J. H. White performed
the ceremony, nfter which the newly-
mnde man and wife received the good
wishes ot a number of invited friends.
The happy couple left last evening for
Victoria, via Vancouver, where the
honeymoon will be spent. Thk Columbian extends congratulations.

A Noteworthy Contract.
Two things ate to lie noted in tho present canvas. Mr. Brown and his friends
have abstained from anything like n
personal attack on Mr. Cunningham,
although there iB material nt hand,
while Mr. Cunningham's friends have
endeavored in every possible way to insult and annoy Mr. Brown. The feebleness of their efforts, confined as they are
to vapid allusions to "John Brown's
Knapsack," nnd so forth, and attempts
to represent the Mayor as a "bloated
Binecurist," shows how clean is Mr.
Brown's record. One or two malicious
lies circulated yesterday as to Mr.
Brown's actions in civic and other matters have beeu detected nnd exposed in
time to put the electors on their guard
ngainst similar low dodges to-morrow
Mr. Brown'i Sapperton  Meeting;.
Mr. Brown held a meeting of the elec
tors of Sapperton at 7 o'clock last evening, in the dining room of the Brunette
Saw Mills, where a large number were
present. Mr. Montgomery, upon being
called to act as chairman, introduced the
speaker.
Mr. Brown said that he had only n
few minutes in which to address the
meeting, as he was in the hands of his
committee and had to do what they
told him. He had joined the Mainland
Association, of which he was put at the
head to lead tbe delegation to Victoria,
and on the question of redistribution
hnd taken a prominent part; and considering the fact that he bad been working ever since 1863 for Mainland rights,
when nsked to stand for election, lie
could not well back down, now that the
real work had begun in earnest. He
thought it not far distant when we
should have our rights. The pledge M r.
Robson makes concerning the redistribution bill in his public address he considered no pledge at all.
If we want to be treated squarely and
properly iu legislation we must elect
Independent members. There was a
school in Sapperton full of pupils, and
the teacher of a similar school in Victoria, though not any more qualified,
gets il20 per month more than does the
Sapperton teacher. He blamed the
system and policy of the Government,
j and said that tbe Independent pnrty
was to prevent it. Mr. Brown touched
upon the Land Act, the Mineral Act,
nnd the Railway Act—showing the
audience their discrepancies, which
were entirely in accordance with the
Sresent Government'. He objected to
Ir. Cunningham's return, because as a
Government supporter he wns pledging
himself to vote with the Govommcut in
all its wrong-doing, besides he left
them as an Opposition member und
wants to be returned as a Government
man, which, to say the least, is not very
consistent. Mr. Cunningham says he
worked bard in caucus, but met opposition and could accomplish little, hut
why docs he now want to go back to
that very samo caucus. Mr. Cunningham was against him because he came
out first and Mr. C. afterwards.
Mr. Brown terminated his address
with au appeal for the Independent
party, for whom he hoped nil would east
their votes on Friday.
Government ticket. He boasted that
every time he went to Victoria for money ho always got it.
Mr. Webster—How much money did
Chilliwack get last year?
Mr. Henderson—I haven't got it down
in blaek and whito. Mr. Kitchen is our
reeve, he can tell you.
Mr. Kitchen—\ou say you got the
money so you ought to know better than
' Mr. Henderson—Well, I got *500 each
time I went down.
Mr. WebBter—How often did you go
down.
Mr. Henderson—Twice.
Mr. Haney—You should have gone
down ten timeB [grent laughter].
Mr. Herring came to the front in good
shape and made one of the best efforts
of the campaign, for which he was loudly applauded. The usual questions followed the speech.
Mr. Haney—Did you  ever know a
Premier to be led by his cabinet.
Mr. Herring—No, I did not.
Mr. Haney—No more did I [laughter).
. Mr. Stephens—If you nre elected wbnt
side of the House will you take?
Mr. Herring—If thero is no Independent party I will join the Opposition [applause],
Mr. Kirkland then took the platform
and stuck close to his principles, reviewing at length his platform and the
policy he would support. Then came
the questions.
Mr. Fitzpatrick—Why did John Robson come here, when he wants to he
elected for Cariboo ?
Mr. Kirkland—I don't know (roars of
laughter.)
Mr. Fitupatrick—All right.
Mr. Kitchen opened lire iu grand
shape, and made the nmst appreciated
speech of tho evonhig. His every remark was applauded, and the points lie
raised wum nil ndiiiiitri.1 to bo token -.hi
good grounds. Tho enthusiasm was intense at the close of his speech.
Mr. Stephens--What side of the
Houso will you tako if elected?
Mr. Kitchen—I will be free from all,
but Mr. Thos. Cunningham and Col;
Baker nre both good Government men,
nnd they sit on the Opposition benches
(laughter and npplause.)
Mr. Punch next came forward and
made a rattling speech, striking right
aud left at the Government's policy,nnd
closed by defying the Hon. Premier to
get up and declare the policy of the
Government wns a good one.   The Premier kept his sent and failed to accept
the challenge.
Mr. Hanev—Who is the Premier?
Mr. Punch—Hon. John Robson.
Mr. Haney—Who guides the cabinet?
Mr. Punch—The Premier, but he admits hia colleagues governed him.
Mr. Haney—It is the case of the boy
eating the man (great laughter.)
Mr. Sinclair claimed that as he was u
successful grocer ho waa entitled to
some support. lie made many promises of what ho would do if elected,
und asked to be judged by his acts.
Mr. Haney—What nre we to vote for,
the acts or tlio promises? [laughter.]
Mr. Sinclair—Both.
Hon. Mr. Robson wns the next
speaker, and came forward smilingly.
He wus greeted with mingled npplniise
and hisses, which annoyed him, nud he
nsked those who hissed tfi leave the
hnll.
Mr. Haney—Have you tbe power to
make them leave ?
Hon. Mr. Kobson—No, 1 have not,
but those who don't want to henr me
had better leave.
Mr. Fitzpdtrick—Then wo'll nil have
to go out. [Great laughter.] The fun
that followed tliis sally waa so uproar-
ous for a fow minutes that the .chairman
with difficulty restored order.
Hon. Mr. Robson resumed his speech
aud dwelt chiefly on the redistribution
measure, but failed to bring out any new
arguments to justify the Government's
action. He got along nicely for a time
and then said: "I accepted the compromise measure by stooping to con-
quor." ["Till you get elected again,"
interjected Mr. Haney.]—"So that 1
could get n better measure when the
censuB wan taken.'* He then nsked the
audience if it expected to get more Government support by sending a "solid
six." [Cries of "you bet;" that's the
way," followed by great applause.] He
then asked the audience not to be bamboozled by designing politicians and

All the amusement of the electoral

candidates. These gentlemen boiled,
blistered and burned under the witty

the intelligent electors, who acting on
the advice of the Hon. Premier did not
allow themselves to be "bamboozled by
designing politicians." They were a
little too wideawake for that, to their

Haney then gravely nseouded tbe platform, shook the Hon. Premier's hand,
turned bis hoad and winked to the
audience, and then solemnly took his
seat, tho whole audience being almost
prostrated with laughter.
Mr. Fitzpatrick wanted to know why
the Premier waB running for Cariboo,
and tbe honorable gentleman explained
that in case he might be defeated in
Westminster district he would still have
a seat in the House.
Mr. Isaacs asked if Mr. Robson was
elected for both constituencies which he
would Bit for, but tbe hon. gentleman
failed to give the questioner any satisfactory reply.   He might sit for either.
Mr. Webeter, Mr. Ferguson and Mr.
Webber asked tbo hon. Premier some
very apt questions as to tho Government's policy in dealing with public
works in Maple Ridge, aud wished to
know why the Council's advice in some
cases bad' been so persistently overlooked. Hon. Mr. Robson attempted to excuse himself and the Government, but
with no success, and be was glad to tako
his seat.
CallH were then made for Mr. Glover,
who addressed tbe mooting, after which
a voto of thanks was passed to the
chairman, and the gathering dispersed
determined to vote for the Independent
ticket.
