Nbw Yokk, N. Y., May 20.—The
Times Philqdelphia special says: Patrick ifynea, of Greenport, N.Y., treasurer of the Ancient Order of Hibernians,
has disappeared after confessing to au
embezzlement of $2,800 of money belong,
ing to the order. The annual convention of the Hibernians met at Hartford
last week. The proceedings were secret,
und tho story of the treasurer's guilt
has therefore not leaked out until now.
When the convention was called to
order on Thursday, tho treasurer was
missing. His absence was accounted
for when tho president caused to be
read a letter he hnd that morning received from liim, iu which he acknowledged appropriating to hia own use the
amount of money, entrusted to him
ns given above, nnd further stated
when the letter was read he would be
beyond the reach of those he had
wronged. The reading of the letter
caused profound amazement. Hynes
had the fullest confidence of the order
and had been treasurer 4 years. His
accounts had always been found correct,
aud so far as Ins associates knew his
character for integrity was beyond question. All moneVs of the Order collected
by assessments from many branches in
the United States nnd Canada passed
through his bauds, and there is no definite knowledge that his peculations do
not aggregate a much larger amount
than lie has confessed to. It ia now
well understood that Hynes fled in
order to escape the immediate conse-
Suences of the discovery of his crime, a
iscovery that would have inevitably resulted upon tbe presentation of his report to tlie convention if he bad made
one. It is not known whether tho treasurer's bondsmen will mnke good the
amount confessed to have been stolon,
the bond being said to be missing. It
is not yet known whether the convention intends to prosecute the defaulting
officer. The general belief is that Hynes
has fled the country.
Nature Resumes Her Sir ay.
EnaKitTON, Kana., Mny 20.—At tbe
election held yesterday to fill tlie vacancies caused by the resignation of the
lady city officials, mon only weroelected.
Very little interest wns taken in the
matter and only one ticket was in the
field, the ladies being completely
ignored. It was the tamest affair of an
election nature that has occurred here
for years. The men elected are mostly
the husbands of the retiring officials,
thus keeping the places in the family.
A Complete Suicide.
Birmingham, Ala., May 20.—Bob
Crawford, a white convict, serving a
ten years' sentence at Pratts Mills for
burglarv, blew himself to atoms with a
keg of dynamite yesterday. Ho had become despondent and went into the
powder houso, sat on a keg and gnvo it
n vigorous kick. Tho explosion was
terrinc. Blood and pieces of flesh were
scattered all over the room.
Hlavlu's Challenge.
Nkw York, May 20.—The following
wns received at the Police Gazette office
yesterday: Frank P. Slavin, disgusted
at Corbett's refusal to fight in tlie Pelican Club for a purse of £1,000, has decided to make no exception, and he
challenges Sullivan, Kilrain, McAuliffe,
or nny man in America to fight for £1,-
000 in the Pelican Club, or he will arrange a match with Sullivan for £1,000
u sine, the Police Gazette championship
belt and the championship of the world,
to fight iu six months on the continent,
and will allow the American champion
hit expenses.

field were quietly removed from the

San Antonia, May 20.—Tho Mexican
consul contradicts the statement sent
here last week of a threatened revolution iu Cotthuilu. Ho declares that
Mexico is in a thoroughly pacific mood
at present. Tho recent movement of
troops was simply un ordinary change of
stations.	
A Country un Fire.

the Dominion. The delegation has been
warmly received in all the English provinces, but great hostility has been
aroused by their mission in the
French Province of Quebec, and the
Quebec Board bf Trade passed a resolution denouncing any attempts to interfere with French rights iu America.
Great Britain was strongly denounced
by the English members of the Board of
Trade, and the French members upheld
the French course. Mr. T, X. Perrnult
said France would not cede one iota of
her rights in America, and there would
be war and the French Canadians would
side with France in any trouble. Strong
resolutions were passed protesting
against the treatment of Newfoundland
by Great Britain, and calling upon the
Imperial Government to effect some
arrangement whereby, for au equivalent,
the fishing privileges would be voluntarily surrendered by the French Government.     -_

A Chinese Lawyer.
San Fhanoisco, May 16.—This morning Attorney Checkering mnde a motion
in the Supreme court that Hong Yuen
Chang be admitted to practice. The
matter was taken under advisement.
Hong Yuen Chang is a Christianized
Chinaman who came to thiB country
several years ago. He entered Harvard
college and afterward attended lectures
atthe Albany, N. Y., law school, from
which he graduated with honor. He
was naturalized by a New York court
some time before his graduation, and
was duly authorized by the New York
Supreme court to practice in all the
courts of that state. Tho justices are in
a quandary over the situation. The
point involved is whether Chang's citizenship papers ftro legal, own   it   tl>oj-
were issued before the law forbidding
naturalization of Chinese was passed.
The laws of the state distinctly provide
that no ono not u citizen cun practice in
the courts.

A Tribe of Afrlean. Ilwarfl.
Bkhmx, May 20.—Capt. Kund hasdis-
covered that in the dense forests forming part of the German territory nonr
the Cameroon mountains, equatorial
Africa, lives n tribe of dwarfs, hitherto
unknown, who lead nomadic lives,
wandering all over the forests, through
which they make their way with surprising rapidity und skill. They call
themselves Bodgueli, and are hunters of
elephants which they kill with lances.
Around them live tribes of ordinary
stature. Tho little people live ubout
two hundred miles north of tbe country
of the dwarfs discovered by Du Chuillu
years ago. They are a very primitive
race and merit thorough study.
Bismarck Inter vie wet).
Pakis, Muy 10,—He Jlfatt.i. contains
the report of un interview of the French
journalist, Dessoux, with Prince Bismarck atFriederichsruhe. The Prince referred to his resignation as a "first-
class funeral," but added that ho was
still quite alive. He was too young to
remain idle doing nothing. Having
been so long accustomed to politics, he
now felt tlie luck of much activity. His
resignation was absolutely final. Germany would never attack France, nor
provoke an attack by France- Germany
understood that Russia would interfere
in that case, us Germany would interfere iu case Russia a I tucked Austria.

Mr. Joseph Armstrong in particular
covered himself with glory aud the promoters of the scheme with ridicule besides seriously endangering the lives of
his audience by sending them into paroxysms of uproarious laughter bv his
bright sallies and humorous comments.
And only one man hod the courage to
stand up and defend the proposal to convert Burnaby Lake into a stretch of fine
farming land and he did so with an eloquence and ability that gained him
hearty applause even from the mostbit-

was that Burnaby Lake could never be

ceded him this point—burnaby Lake
might nt some far-distant future time become u summer resort for this city, but
for the present that was deemed impossible. But what a change has come o'er
the spirit of their dream. That which
they thought so far off will be one of
this year's living questions. The proposal to open up Mury street from tho
city limits to the shore of Burnaby Lake
is looked upon with so much favor that
property holders in the line of the proposed street have already agreed togrant
the land for tho same through their property. It now remains with the Westminster Bowing Club to, weigh
well their decision whether they
will have their headquarters on
the Fraser river or out at the lake.
The advantages which they will enjoy
at the lake would be incomparably
superior to those they could ever expect on the Fraser. With the opening
up of Mury Btreet and the introduction
oi the electric street railway, an event
very close at hand. Burnaby Lake
would undergo vast improvements. Iu
all probability the tangled underbrush
that grows so densely round the margin
of the lake would be within the year
superseded by a fine broad carriage and
bicycle drive right round tho lake.
Much of the forest adjacent would be
cleared and laid out in lawns and gardens. The club could build a handsome
nnd comfortable boat house close to the
debouchment of Mary street ou the lake
and near the street ear terminus; they
would have not only perfectly still water
to practice on, but a course nearly three
mile sstraight-away.   The pleasure boats

The Cooked Ilenpatflli.
Montrkai,, May 20.—Great Britain's
notion wub strongly denounced at a big
meeting of the Montreal Board of Trade
to-day In the Newfoundland fisheries
question. The Newfoundlanders demanded the repeal of the modus rivendi
entered into between Grent Britain and
France without their consent, and some
time ugo they appointed a delegation to
go to Canada mul secure the support of
would have ample room to move about
in, and thoso who delight lu being "far
from the madding crowd" would find
on tlie lake many a secluded bay nnd
inlet whore they could indulge their dolce
far nitnte propensities to the full. One
important thing to remember is Unit
the occupation of Burnaby Lake in this
way would most probably result in tho
Brunette Kiver channel being cleared
from the lake to tho Frasor, thus adding
a hundredfold to the charms ot the
place. This lovely sheet of water, lying
within a mile of the Citv limits will bo
worth millions to this City. Its desirability ns a summer resort cannot bo exaggerated und as the street curs will
place it within say ten minutes of Columbia street it would perhaps be moro
properly spoken of ns one of the City
parks. Should tbe rowing club and the
public combine in urging this matter
the thing is practically done. Both
will bonoflt vastly by it and It is ono of
tho best strokes of business the City
could do nt the present time. Everyone feels the lack of just such a place
for Wostminster, and every one should
turn out and hear the matter discussed
freely at the rowing club meeting tomorrow night.
proposition thut u formal representation
Bhould bo made to Russia by the British
Government ou the subject of the Siberian outrages. The Pall Mall Gazette,
says: "England is the land of coustitu-
tlonul liberty, where, happily, the unjust shedding of the blood of a single
citizen is enough to damn a government.
Mr. Gladstone's reference to the Mit-
cheltown affair, haB no weight with men
like Stepnink, the noted Russian agitator,
who is unable to see what more wo want
in free England than wc already havo."
The Standard (Conservative Jsays that
it cannot find language to adequately express its disgust at tlie parallel drawn
by Mr. Gladstone. "What can be
thought," it asks, "of a man who is trying to persuade bis countrymen that a
confused street riot can be*clussed with
u deliberate flogging of naked women
and kindred, barbarities, lt shocks one's
moral sense to find a party lender has
reached a state of rancor where truth,
decency and self-respect nre obliterated."
Tho St. James' Gazette says that in
making such a comparison Mr. Gladstone snowed himself au unstripped and
battered adventurer, sticking ut nothing. 	
King Leopold*!. Visit
London, May 18,—The visit of the
King of Belgium to London proves to
have beeu not solely for the purpose of
attending the unveiling of the Prince
Consort's statue nt Windsor, though
that was its only ostensible object. It
has developed bv close inquiry in circles
best informed diplomatically, that King
Leopold is anxious in regard to the continued dependency and autonomy of
Belgium. He believes that a war between Germany nnd France Ib imminent,
and he fears thut iu the general alteration of tho map of Europe that will
follow, Belgium will bo absorbed by her
big neighbor ou tho east unless she con
find Btrong friends to support her claims
to continued Independence. England's
influence has more thnu once
been thrown on Belgium's side when
questions of Germany's pretensions in
that direction havo been at Issue, nnd
King Leopold's reason for visiting London at this time is that he desired it
personal assurance from Lord Salisbury
that England would guarantee Belgium's
neutral position in caso of a Frunco-
tierman war. An interview wns had
accordingly uud the desired assurance
was given, Thero is no doubt thnt
England would go to any length required
in order to prevent such au increase of!
German territory uud power as would bo
involved iu tbo acquisition of either
Belgium or Holland, toward both of
which countries Gorman statesmen are
suspected of constantly casting a greedy
eye, __Ma__m_m___m_mm__mmm

REDISTRIBUTION  AS   AN  ISSUE.
Thk electors have n very important
duty to perform on the 30th of the present month us woll us on thelfltliof next
Viewed in the proper light, the selection by tho peoplo of their represenla
Uvea to the deliberative und ndminis-
trative body that is supposed, nt least, to
administer the affairs of the country for
the people, is always an important mat
ter. Whore there Is u clearly defined
issue, ns iu tbe present cuse, upon
which momentous results, both ns to
principle nnd practice, hinge, the olec^
live function of tho people takes ou u
largely increased importance. The
issue, then, is this: A great injustice
bus been wrought iu the state. A sub'
versive principle, hitherto latent but
fermenting, bus beon brought to the
surface, formuluted, enunciated, and embodied in un outrageous measure which,
despite the strongest and most righteous
protests, has becomo law. This action
by the constituted authorities culls for
the unmistakably expressed condemnation of tho people at the polls.
But this not ull 1 Nor by uny means
most important 1 The measure thnt bus
become law, radically and practically
unjust and unequal as it is, is admitted
by ull to be a "temporary" as well as a
' "compromise" measure. But. some time
during the next Parliament, probably
mediately after the census next year, a new
redistribution measure, permanent in its
nature, that is, designed to fix the be-
I'HESKNTATION OP THE PltOVINCE KOlt   THE
following ten yeaks, will be brought
before the legislature. AND THE
GOVERNMENT AS A WHOLE AND
THE POWER BEHIND THE GOV
ERNMENT, WHICH FORCED THE
OUTRAGEOUSLY UNJUST "TEMPORARY" MEASURE THROUGH
THE HOUSE AND UPON THE COUN.
TRY, ARE PRACTICALLY COMMITTED TO TUTTING THROUGH A
PERMANENT MEASURE BASED
UPON THE SAME PRINCIPLE!
This is the real point. This is what the
electors must keep in view. It is not
what has been done—bad aud all as thut
is, und demanding the strongest condemnation nnd punishment—that is to
be considered; but what will be done, on
an infinitely more important occasion,
and with far more lusting nnd serious
consequences. A momentous crisis is
upon the country, und if the electors of
the Lower Mainland and of tho Interior
do not throw off all nartv trammels at
this time, and, by electing good, true
and independent men, place themselves
in a position in the next Parliament to
demand thoir rights, instead of having
to plead for them, they will keenly regret their mistake in the very near
future, and the Provinco as a whole will
receivo a well-nigh irreparable injury
for all,timo. There is not, in truth, a
really patriotic elector on Mainland or
Island who can afford to overlook or
condone the foul blow that bus been
struck at tlie eternal principles of justice, fairness and equal rights iu this
Province. If tho wrong is not speedily
wiped out, and full reparation made, by
au equitable and just measure being
placed on the statute bookB—nay, but
if, instead, by the all-potent voice of the
electors at the polls (with whom the
whole question now rests), the cankering evil slioujd be confirmed and per-
petuated-jbitter indeed will be tho
fruit which, not one, but all sections of
the Province will reap some time in tbe
future. The question of equality and
justice iu tho distribution of the representation may be1'a quostion of senti-
" ment," as an honorable apologist for
the base measure passed has snecringly
insinuated, but questions of sentiment,
be it remembered, rule tho world, and
dominate the hearts, lives and actions
of men, and nations; in fact, even the
so-culled sordid things of life cannot be
realized or possessed except through tho
medium of sentiment. Enough, therefore, on that point.
From a consideration of the duty of
tho electorate of tho Provinco at large,
let us inquire into tho particular course
which the electors of the three Lower
Mainland constituencies should pursue.
Tho genoral remarks above will apply
fully to them; but it Is here that tbo
grand stand must be mnde, the initiative taken, the heaviest blows struck/
Horo, if any where—because this is the
section of the Province most discriminated against, at the present time—should
a united and unbroken protest be recorded at the polls against the wrong that
has beeu done, and which will undoubtedly be perpetuated unless the action
which is here advised is taken. To
speak moro particularly and emphatically: Westminster City, Vancouver
City, and Westminster District should
unite in sendingn "solid" six to the
new Provincial Parliament, independent
of both existing parties, while prepared
to support good measures from cither,
and pledged to secure, at the earliest
possible dnto, justice for the Lower
Mainland nud equal rights for overy
section of tho Province in the matter of
representation, upon somo equitable
basis to be agreed upon—and irrespective
of the fate of governments altogether.
It must bo obvious, wo think, thnt none
but independent and noii-partfaun candidates could take or fulfil such it pledge,
und It must bo equally apparont to all
who havo watched tho courso of events
and appreciate tho truo situation nud
the forces at work, that by such united
and uncompromising action only can wo
have any hope of securing our rights.
There ore very fow who will dispute
this proposition on tbo whole, but somo
say, An exception should bo mado in
the case of tho Premier, the Hon. John
Robson, who has signified his intention
to seek re-election in his old constituency, Now Westminster District.   Thi s
is n statement thnt demands careful inquiry and consideration, and no personal
or political predilections or antipathies
should have weight in the decision. Let
ua see what would be the reasons urged
for making this exception. It may be
urged then, that, although every other
member of the Government is opposed
to a fair redistribution and is bound to
perpetuate Injustice and unfairness in a
new measure, the Premier Ib all right on
principle on the question. Admitted;
but the Premier succumbed in the .last
Parliament, against his true convictions,
to the pressure brought to bear upon
him, nnd confessed his utter inability to
help us secure our rights. What more
can he do for us when the question
comes' up again? Will he be prepared
to sacrifice himself then, if need be, nny
more than he was in tho pnst? And
this question suggests just what we
conceive to be the strongest argument
against returning the Premier (or anyone but a thoroughly independent man.
politically) from this district. The Premier would have his position to look
after—his Government to preserve—nnd
if tlie rights of the Lower Mainland, und
justice nnd fairness for the whole Province iu redistribution matters, were set
off against these, why tho latter would
bo obliged to take second place; if redistribution should come to a question
of sacrifice again, as it is very likely to
do, the Premier, we fear, would prefer
place to principle. Wo do not desire to
do the Premier an injustice, but wo are
merely judging him by his own actions
und his own words of the past few
weeks. Lot the electors think on these
things.
But, ns u final clincher, it is urged, if
wc refuse to elect the Premier in this
District, he will turn against us nnd be
our enemy. We do not think so hardly
of the Premier. We believe tbat he
will be able to rise above mere "district
lines," and to Bee that, while sacrificing
him temporarily, and without any ill-
will or resentment, wo are giving him an
additional member to help him stand
by his convictions and his principles In
the House; for, if the Hon. John Robson does not run in this District, it may
be taken as an assured fact that tho
" solid" redistribution ticket will be returned. By contesting the District, the
Premier may prevent this, but he will
only succeed in lessening by ono tho
members in the new Parliament who
would assist him iu securing what he
has professed himself to be individually
anxious to secure, namely, justice for
the Lower Mainland and an equitable
redistribution for the entire Province.
If he is sincere, and as he has practi-
ally cofessed his inability to help ub to
our rights, as things are, the Premier
would be doing a patriotic action to allow us to help ourselves most effectually,
by standing himself for some other
District. Let tho Premier think over
this matter.

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
New Westminster City.
GENTLEMEN:—In response lo a requisition.
Humorously signed, which has beeu presented to
mo, I beg to olrer myself as representative of
this City In tho Provincial Legislature.
I franklV confess that, aside from tha great
luestlou (it the Just distribution of legislative
power, 1 would scarcely cure to bo a candidate.
If you do mo the honor to elect mo I shall mako
that question my first consideration at nil times,
and iu order to do this Itis essential that I
keep quite free from nny entangling alliances
with cither Government or Opposition. But to
the people and tho advocacy of tho rights of the
people, In this matter and tn all othorB, I can
fully and freely pledge myself; and with thoso,
betlioyon what side nt tho Houso they may,
who aro unlimited by a similar spirit, I wlll work
cordially.
Tho present crisis demands special treatment.
Wc of tin. Lower Mainland aro denied our just
share of legislative power, and so long as that li
tho ease nur true iwltcy.in my opinion—nny,
the pnlley which our own selfreNpect compels us
tn adopt—is to return no mail to tho Legislature
who will not make tho righting of that wrong
his Ilrst business. It may safely bo assumed
thnt those who shall ho found willing to do
right iu this matter, wtllbc the most likely to do
right in others also.
Notwithstanding the utmost devotion to this
Ilrst question, your representative will huve to
deal with many other matters, and perhaps lt
will be mi indent now to say on this point tbat I
believe there Is room for a good deal of work before tho ad ml ti 1st rnt ion of public affairs can
claim to be what It should be—government by
the people for tho peoplo. I should earnestly en
dcavor io do my share of that work.
I believe I may safely assume that you hoed
no assurance of my deep and abiding interest In
everything that makes for tho prosperity of New
Westminster Oity.
I am, Gentlemen,
Vory truly yours,

FRACTIONAL  CURRENCY.*
MiUloni or Dollars that Havo Never Been
Redeemed.
"Say, are those any good?" inquired a
timid-looking young man of Doorkeeper
liraly at the sub-treasury tbe other day
as he exposed to view a half dozen
pieces of ragged, dirty paper. A close
inspection, says the New York Commercial Advertiser, revealed that they
wore fractional paper currency or
"ahln-plastors," such as played so Important a part as a circulating medium
before the resumption of specie payment. The young man was direoted to
the small change room, where B. C.
Haff took the soiled and crumpled hits
in his hands, smoothed thom out with
the hasty touch of an expert, singled
out one of the pieces and turned around
to a bit of wood, thatlookcd liko a small
butcher's blook, and strnck on it the
•.<;)pcted piece of paper a whack with a
^_teol instrument. Then turning to tho
young man ho replied:
"Theso five are good, but that one Is
counterfeit."
As ho spoke ho handed back the
.spurious note-paper and across tho face
was tho word "counterfeit" cut clean
.ind clear. Tho stool instrument with
which he had struck tho paper was a
sintrp stencil dio that cut the tell-tale
ward so clearly thnt it could novor bo
• il'aced and tlio veriest fool could seo
chat 11, was worthless.
"Do you want these redeemed?" continued Mr. Hall, as hn pointed to tho
ilvo grimy slips on iho nntrblo coun tor.
"Yos, sir, if you please," sUunmered
ilm youth, aa ho eyed with surprlso and
I'.-ur tho mutilated piece returned to
him. Mr. Ilafi put two bright silver
dollars and a silver quarter on tho
• •<>unter, which tho boy picked up in a
hurry as though ho was afraid thoy
would bo taken baok again.
"Do you got much of that old fractional cui'i'onoy now?'' was asked of Mi'-
Half as tho boy wont out.
I'No," ho replied, "wo got very littlo
now, not moro than $3,600 a year. Tho
amount coming in for redemption is
growing less nnd loss every year. It
lined to come in horo by tho bushel
basketful. Hut for many years now it
lias only come in in driblets. Wo
■ Mom yet its much at a timo as that
_v..>ung man just brought in."
•Then It has most all boen redeemed,
has It?"
■■So, Indeed, and what is more, a
.cry large amount will nover bo re-
..'i-mert. There is now outstanding of
t'.io old fractional paper ourronoy some-
: Mug llko 810,000,000, And of this it- is
(utlinalcU that not more than §8,000,000
io §,1,000,000 will evnr como in now."
"Hut whore is tlio rest and why will it
not come in for redemption?"
"A great deal of it bus been worn out
by the wear and tear of twenty odd
;. ran of usuge. Any quantity of it hns
l.iit'.ri burned up in tho many fires that
havo occurred since tho time ft was issued, and in numerous other ways it bas
been lout and destroyed. Then there
. .e some other peoplo who hold all thoy
i iiu get to use In sending small amounts
by mtiil, (hiding it very handy for that
purpose. Then, too, tho old curroncy Is
now so scarce that peoplo keep tho oo-
•'-u.sion.il pieces that come to hand as
curiosities or pocket pieces. A groat
■■-.iny coin collectors have crisp, unworn
;if'(.iuiens o. It iu tholr collections.
One wealthy gontloiuan in tho city I
know carries in his pocket-book,
.■/rapped up with tho greatest care, four
clear, bright specimens, a fco, a;),-!, a10
and a 0-cont piece, lie says Ib was tho
llt-st money he over earned. It was paid
to him In these identical pieces, brand
new from tho press, and ho has preserved them ever since for luck. I do
dot believe you could buy them from
him for S1.000 oaob. Ho calls thorn his
j • lerve capital, and if ho over loses the
]..Illicit or more ho is now reputed to be
worth be will havo his 00 cents reserve
Lo fall back on."'
A good deal of Lho fractional currency
'hat comes into tho sub-treasury for roil .imp tion turns out to bo counterfeit,
r.'nd the moment it comes into the
bauds of tbe money changers In that
Institution, no matter who hands it in,
ilia hurried to the block and branded
with the Sicnoil-outting die. They ask
no permission* but just go and do it.
The samo rule is followed, too, In the
rotunda where tbo blllsof larger denomination come in. Sometimes men get
vory angry when their bad bills are
banded back to them mutilated in suoh
:v manner that they cannot bo used.
A few days ago the South Forry Company sent into tbo sub-treasury a bundle
of the fractional currency representing
.-bout 8100. 11 bad been discovered back
of a partition in tbo old ferry-house,
where it had either been stowed away
or misplaced and was found when the
old.building was torn down to make
room for tho now structure. Mr. Haff
shuffled through tbo pile, and notf only
pronounced it all counterfeit, but discovered that some of lt had boon brought
to tho sub-treasury at least twenty yoars
ago, as tlio marks of the old stamps
used as long ago as that to mark counterfeit paper money was still plainly
visible on thom. Each, piece was subject to tho cutting process, and will
probably not bo nrosented again for redemption.
All tho fractional paper ourronoy that
is redeemed at tbo sub-treasury is sont
|o tho treasury id Washington, whoro it
Id placed In tho crematory and burned

rtlag, a shiglo pound of which may represent 3100,000; tbo balance floats oil as

riot for a -Sensational Novel from the
Georgia Court Records.
A fow yoars ago among the moonshiners in tho Fulton County prison
was Walter Blackmail, says tho Atlanta
Journal. On tho night of December 13
Blackmail and Miss Lulu Hloksweroto
be married. Tho guests had all arrived, among whom .was a young man
named Uoorgo lllakesley, who had been
a suitor for Miss Hicks'hand. Makes-
ley was a mountaineer himself, or hud
been, but had lately traveled about considerably. Tho justice was preparing
his papers and tbe bride and groom
mnde their appearance from an adjoin-
1 ing room.
Thero was a sound of horses' feet
upon tho frozen ground outside. More
I guests arriving? In a few moments a
J doBen revenue officers armed to the
I teeth entored tho room and placed
JBhickman under arrest. The bride-
J groom was taken to Atlanta, and thore
I was no wedding.
At - tbo   trial   lllakesley   was the
(principal witness, and he testified as te
Thow ho hud pointed out tho spot where
Hlacl.mi.n'n still was located and thou
]bld the officers of the wedding.
Blackmail was sentenced to twelve
Months' imprisonment. As soon as tin
(rial was over Blakosley hastened back
:> the home of Miss Hicks and told hei
that her lover had been sent to prison
tor life. For throe months afterward
|lakesloy pressed his suit, and Mint,
flicks Anally married him.
It may have been Blakosley'a Inton-
llon to wait until the twolve month*
Jhad nearly expired and to then move to
■somo other placo with his wifo. At the
lend of six months Blackmail was par*
Idoned, and tho story of tho interrupted
I wedding had something to do with tin
| oxocutivo clemency.
Blackman went to his home and wat
' told of Miss Hicks' marriage, 11
placed a Winchester on his shoulder
rode over to where Blakosley was 11 v
ing, nnd calling him to the door, sho
him through the heart. Riding hastily
I away he disappeared in the woods and

SHOE-LEATHER OILS.
How Grease Affects the Wearing Quality
of Fuot-Ocur.
Animal oils and greases incorporate
themselves with the fiber; they do not
evaporate. Their action, says the
Boots and Shoes Weekly, is like that of
compounding various metals—instead of
forming a composition, in the one case,
all the elements are so compounded
that their individuality is lost, and separation is almost impossible; in the
other, the elements are mixed, hut oan
he separated almost without loss in
bulk. Moisturo will drive'the greaso
to the surface, and gradually the interior will be robbed of its life, but
thoro is no evaporation. Consequently
the leather retains its flexibility muoh
longer than when the grease is also
drawn out by heat and the action of the
air.
Animal oil does not penetrate the
leather so quickly as oils that are more
volatile, but this very quality is what
makes them more valuable, as they are
taken up by the fiber, not simply suoked
In and filling around it, and they aro
equally difficult to draw out. Rancid
oils, oils that have undergone a chemical
change that marks the first step toward
vitiation, have lost thoir most valuable
iToperties, and the process of decay
ivhich has begun Introduces gases,
..reaving tiie volatile olomont which so
■ illicitly ntbs i in- leather of its nourishment. At tho samo timo tho fiber is Injured by tlio decaying grease.
Vegetabfe oils rank next to animal in
their preservative qualities, but the
oils extracted from flax sood and cotton
seed, unless purified, aro of such gummy
nature und so easily affected by heat
thut they aro unfit for uso by tho currier. Cotton-seed oil, purified as it is
when sold for sweet oil, Is an excellent
hut an expensive oil for leather. Pure
olive and castor oil possess the qualities
rcquisito for preserving leather and
koophig it soft, but their cost precludes
their general use. Castor oil is Lho best.
Fish oil is used moro than any othor
and to Its use may bo attributed much
of tlie poor wearing qualities of the
leather now in the market. By an improved process of manufacture fish oils
aro deodorized so thoroughly that their
prosencocan not bo do tooted. Thoy penetrate more readily than either animal
or vegetable oils, but they do not incorporate themselves with tho fiber. They
simply fill up the Interstices, and boing
ef a ligb t naturo they aro easily drawn
out by heat or moisturo. They impart
a soft condition to the leather when it is
new, as much so if not more than do tho
animal oils, and because of that thoy aro
notcondomned. If used freely In connection with hard grease they becomo rancid, and impart an odor whioh is retained as long as there Is any grease in
tlie leather.
Mineral oils are being introduced
quite freely, and as thoy aro thoroughly
deodorized they find ready purchasers.
These oils are tho worst possible
that oan be put into leather.
They have wonderful penetrating
properties, but they are heating, and
(heir volatile properties doprlvo thom
cf the permanency ho necessary for the
preservation ot the leather. They do
nut tako kindly to other oils or greases,
and nro easily out by wator. Whilo the
natural heat from the feet will cause
evaporation, particularly if the leather
is moist, they do not become rancid, but
they are moro injurious to the fiber than
even the most rancid animal oil.
Tho shoo manufacturer should condemn all leather treated with mineral
oils. A little care on Ma part wlll enable him to determine the oil used,
whether animal, vegetable or mineral.
Hood grain and clear fleshed stock invito tho eye, and if properly treated
with oils the leather will prove accept-
able, but grease is tbe Ufo of the leather,
and just in proportion as the grease is
pure und Incorporates itself with the
fiber is the leather durable or otherwise.
PATIENT   DRESS-MAKERS.
In the Omii-Bo of Tholr   llut_Ii.es!.   Thcj
Meet Queer C'ritnkH.
■ "¥es, wo meet many cranks," remarked a dress-maker to a Detroit Tribuno reporter. "The Hist
grade are thoso lades who havo drcssr-r
altered. I bad somo experience wltb
one of this class not long ago.   Shoseni
for me,   'Miss X ,' she said, 'I want
this dress made over. Tho material is
very expenslvo and cost me four dollars
a yard. I am almost afraid to let yon
undertake It.' 'Vory well, then,' I said,
rising. 'However, I think I will trust
you,' sho continued.
"So after tho usual preliminaries of
measuring and fitting I sat down to take
tho dress to pieces. I applied the scissors and cut the goods on tho bias. With
that she groaned aloud. I worked for
about half nn hour while she continued
to got more and more nervous. At last
she arose. 'I can't stand it any longer,'
she said. 'I am too nervous. You must
go. 1 can't have you work any more
to-day.'    So 1 left.
"The next day I received a note to
call. 'I supposoyou might us well finish
what you havo begun,' ahe said when I
entored, 'but work as quickly as you
can.'
"Woll, I was never beforo so harassed
Sho groaned whenever I touched tho
scissors. The dress turned out a perfect
success and fitted her splendidly. As n
result tho lady has taken a g?e'ut fnuc\
tome and I llko her, although social
gayotios havo made her a partial vlotiin
to nervous prostration.
"f recall another case," continued tin
dress-makor. "I made a dress for a lad \
out of dooidedly cheap material. When
sho tried Hon she snld: 'It is too long
1 took It up nn inch. Tho noxi day she
said: 'It is too short' I let it down the
inch. Sho said: 'Oh, dear, you hnve
mado it too long once more.' I took ii
up half nn inch. Thon It was too shun
once more. Seven times I let up and
took out that half Inch. At last she
said: 'That is right.' It was right, because it was just as I had it at first. Yes.
% dress maker needs patience."
A   HORSE'S  MEMORY^
He Jtemomlnrtd tlio Trick He Had I'lnyed
Two Vein's Before.
"Say, friend, you aro on'my horse,"
said one gentleman to another as he
reined his horse before tbo door.
D"Your horse! Ob.no! Why, I bought
this horse two yours ago."
•"You did?" answered tho other. "Woll,
I lost my horse. It was stolen just two
years ago."
Tho conversation took plaoe under the
far-spreading oaks of an old-time plantation home, says tho St. Louis Globe-
Democrat. A planter was surprised to
see his horse return home after two
years, and ridden by a gentleman who
evidently had bought the horse In good
faith. After somo conversation the old
owner of tho horse, with much earnestness, said: "Well, sir, if you will dismount, unsaddle tho horse, and ho
doesp't go to the fence, take the bars
downi walk to the well, und if he doesn't
And water in the bucket lot it down the
well, and then walk off to his old stable,
I will give up, and that horse isn't
mine." "Atyour word; the horse is yours
if ho does all that," cried tho visitor,
and leaping from the horse, unsaddled
It, What was his astonishment when
the horse went straight to the fence, let
down the bars, crossed over, went to the
welt, and finding no water, let tho
bucket down, and then, as though he
had left homo hut yesterday, walked to
the old stable. The animal remembered
the trick and tho owner recovered his
horse. Thore are those living who oan
attest to the truth of this story, though
it happened years ago.

The sir. Delaware arrived this afternoon from up river. She had over 50
Ions of hay and till passengers. Hereon*
signees nre as follows: Royal'City Planing Mills Co., T. W, Clarke, J. I). Rao,
A. Gandien, G. R. Small, W. AG. Wolf-
enden, Messrs, Stevens, Edwards,
Smith, Speucc., Hamilton, Dickinson,
Holden and Malcolm. After unloading
242 bales of hay at the Royal City Planing Mills the Delaware went down to
Duncan A Batchelor's new cannery with
1200 cases of tin and 3,000 bricks. She
will return to-night.
Aud now that the huge pictorials descriptive of the many wonders to be seen
adorn the bulletin boards and dead-
walls.and the small bills scattered every
where around and about announcing its
appearance, quite an interest is being
manifested from the fact that it is generally understood that among the many
interesting features of this new show
will be found the largest animal iu the
world, Queen Jumbo, an elephant, the
consort and constant companion of tho
late lamented Jumbo, at the Zoological
Gardens, Londou, for a number of years
and now weighing many tons more than
Jumbo ever weighed, and a much taller
elephant. The new arenic feat ures will
no doubt attract the multitude where
there is so much to be seen, and that so
unusual and interesting cannot fail to
create intense interest.
Olorle* In Its Shninoi
Wo observe that the local morning
paper, driven from one untenable position after another, hunted out of its
" lost ditch" and stricken to death in'
the open, has at last recognized that It
has not a leg to stand upon, and has relapsed into idiotic drivel. There is no
point worth noticing in its gibbering.,
this morning except the regrettable fact
that our cotemporary glories in its Bhame
of having prostituted itself for hire.
Tlie North Arm Bridges.
Mr. Catt, manager for the San Francisco Bridge Co. paid a visit to the ruins
of the North Arm bridge on Sunday,
and thoroughly inspected the wreck.
Before leaving he instructed the foreman to get to work immediately, and
rebuild the broken span, and the structure is now in course of erection.
The Richmond Council has notified
the Government that the bridge is down,
and has asked that tho structure be not
accepted from the company until it has
been properly tested, and its strength
proved. This is a very moderate request, and the council hopes it will not
be overlooked.

.  Excellent Practice.
The lacrosse practise last night was
fairly well attended, but several of the
best players were unavoidably absent.
It is very noticeable that both home and
defence are being greatly strengthened
bv practice, and it ia hard to decide
which does the best work. The home
work beautifully together and seem to
have thoroughly grasped each other's
play, while the defence is always on
hand wherever the rubber ia, nnd the
resistance is fully as determined as the
attack. The seniors are to be commended on the regular manner in which
they attend all practices, and it is to be
hoped they will stick together with the
same constancy during the whole season.

Obituary.
Intelligence was received in Victoria
on Saturday of the death of Mr. John E.
Venables Vernon, of Clontarf Castle, in
the county of Dublin, Ireland, which
occurred on the 29th of April. Tho deceased gentleman, who was in his 77th
year, waB a deputy lioutenant of hi.
county, and in early life had a distinguished university career. He visited
this province in the year 1874, and accompanied his sons, Hon. F. G. and
Mr. Charles Vernon both now residing
in Victoria, to their ranch near Okanagon Lake, where he spent some time
before returning to the old country.
Colonel Edward Vernon, commanding
the 5th Battalion, Royal Dublin Fusi-
leers, and who is the eldest sou of the
late Mr. Vernon, succeeds to the entailed estates.
Sons of England Benevolent Society.
It is contemplated to organize a lodge
of the above society in this city. * The
society lias been in existence only 15
years and in the Dominion alone has
now a membership of 8.000. The objects are to bring Englishmen together
for their mutual benefit and also to enable travelling Englishmen to meet with
thoir own countrymen. The society has
a separate sick benefit and doctors' department, and a beneficiary department in which members can insuro for
$1,000 at a very low rate. The objects
aud aims of this society are worthy the
consideration and support of every man
of English descent, and all such nre cordially invited to attend a meeting which
will be held in a few days, of which due
notice will be given. Dr. Walker and
Mr. Robert Allen are taking steps to
organize the society here.

The Fisheries  Launch.
The steam launch which wns decided
upon Borne time ago by the Dominion
Government, for use on the Frasor by
the Inspector of Fisheries, is to be built
after all, though it seemed for a time as
if the intention was never going -to he
fulfilled. Messrs. McPhee Bros., the
shipbuilders in whose hands the plans
have been for some time, received instructions a few days ago to commence
work on the launch, and they havo already got tho frame under way. The
little craft will be 30 feet in length, 0 ft.
beam, 2}_ ft. deep and furnished with a
t. h. p. engine. The launch will be built
of native cedar, with white oak frame,
and finished in handsome style. It is
expected the hull will be ready for the
machinery iu about a month, and the
steamer complete will probably bo at
Mr. Mowat's service by July IBtli.

A Fair Offer.
It is pleasing to note such a willingness to take chances, whether it pays or
not, as that diBpnlyed by Mr. Robinson
in his offer to tako charge i of the City
weighing machine until the end of the
present year, for whatever the machine
can earn, aud in ease tho receipts exceed what lie thinks would be a fair remuneration for his services he will deposit the excess in the corporation exchequer. A bod man would smile sardonically at such a proposition and
probably mutter like the little shoeblack with the apple, "there ain't goin'
to bo no core," "there ain't goin' to bo
no excess;" but the offer is a bona fide
one and has met with the approval of the
City fathers' who are not bad men. Mr,
Robinson will enter upon his duties at
an early date. Needless to say, tho
weigh scales will boa great benefit to
evory merchant in the City and especially to those engaged in the coal, wood
and grain business.

Political Notes.
Mr. Win. Isaacs, of Maple Ridge, iB
the latest candidate in the field for political honors, He hns not issued an
address to the oloctoisas yet, but promises to do so at an early date. Mr. Isaacs
proposes to make a thorough canvass of
this district, commencing at an early
date.
Although Mr. Thomas Shannon is in
the field, he proposes to withdraw
should he not be selected in the Mainland Rights' team to contest the district, and he will uso his whole influence
to secure the election of the candidates
regularly nominated. ThiB is a patriotic course to pursue, and one that
should be adopted by all candidates who
are earnest in their endeavors to have
our wrongs righted.
It is understood the Hon. John Robson has been specially invited to be present at the public meeting to be held at
Vancouver on Thursday evening after
the session of the Mainland Association.
It is quite probable tho honorable gentleman will attend.
Mr. James McGeer has decided to
stand for Vancouver City. So has Mr.
James Orr. Samuel Greer and several
other gentlemen.        , .
It is unlikely a regular canvass of the
district will bo Inaugurated until after
nominations. Then a lively tour may
be expected, The candidates In the
field after the 30th inst. will be there to
stay, aud each man may be depended
on to put forth his best efforts to Bectire
election.
At Vancouver, to-night, the Hon.
John Robson will open the ball. A meeting has boen called by tho supporters of
the Government, at which the Premier
will bo the principal speaker.
The central executive of the Mainland
Association is called to meet at Vancouver on Thursday afternoon nt 4 o'clock,
It is expected delegates will be present
from nllpartBofthed.Btr.ct. At7o'clock
In the evening a genoral public meeting
will be held, which is certain to be an
enthusiastic affair.

NUMBER 92.
TO THE ELECTORS
 OF	
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to till the vacancy caused by tiie death of our late
representative (the much-respected I).
Chisholm) and ub I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay beforo you
some of my views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.
I huve been asked what I mean when
I announce myself as a -Liberal-Conservative ; I reply, "That by nature and
education I am n Conservative, but a
residence of over 80 years in this Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has had the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
mo liberal ideas, then.fore I claim J am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that party lines are not defined in
British Columbia us thoy nre in the older
provinces, 1 consider that our representatives nre not in duty bound to give a
throngh-thick-and-thiii' support to any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to giv-3 a generous support to all
good measures which may be brought
before tliem, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, and
should a measure come before them
which they consider in anv way detrimental to the interests'of this Province
they should take their stand like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed ton certain extent, to
the Turin', or National Policy us applied
, to British Columbia. We arc a long
' way from tlie centres of manufacture in
the East, nnd many articles of every-dity
use to onr Farmers and others, and
which wc cannot produce at home can
bo obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, and in many cases the articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Fanning and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles ore 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 tne border for it,
and are met with such heavy duties
that heads of families in tliis Province
pay more Until ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
We have had example to the point during the last three mouths. It we had
not received a good supply from California there would have been n meat
famine; as it is we are now and have
been paving 25 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the same state of
alliiirs is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for the last eleven yearB
our stock raisers are little better prepared to meet hard winters than they
were before, and to my mind the only
ones who have reapedthe beneiit of the
N. P. are the manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I Bhould like to see "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question,! would advocate "Kcciprocitv"
in many articles which are at present in the Tarill' lists, as I think
it would he beneficial to both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go down so deep into his
pockets to buy what he needs to eat and
wear. I am awnre the Government must
huve a revenue to curry on the affairs of
the country, but 1 would have "luxuries"
pay more and get at the pocketis of tlie
richer classes who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of the late Mr. Chisholm, he was unable
to bo in Ins place this session, and very
little during the previous one, so we of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our lucal wants have
not been brought before the notice of
the House. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
beeu in his seat, I do not think the Post-
in uBter-Oonerul 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 that important route, and
there ure other pluces in the District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider should receive that gentleman's enrliest attention.
I hope that iu the near future our
District will reach that point that we
may look for it to bo 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 iu 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
the channel ut the Sandheads, in view
of the ex|Kicted increase in our shipping
interests.
I consider the Province should have
control over all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District in particular, I feel should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from the mouth
of the Sorpeutino to Fraser Kiver, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from tho Fraser River to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to ine.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, und encouraged judiciously,
.lust at pivHcnt it is coming here fust
enough; 1 would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, as manv 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 make
this address too long. I hope to see as
many ub possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send duo notice of time aud place of meetings.
During my long residence in the Province I have travelled through much oi
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such mutters before tlie notice of the
House iu a practical, business-like manner.
Should I have the honor to be elected
I assure you I shall wntch over the interests of this District faithfully aud to
the best of my ability, not forgetting
that 1 ulso go us a true British Coluni
bian and to do my duty as such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.

Parliamentary Election, 1890
To the Electors of New Westminster District:
GENTLEMEN:—Having heen requested by a
large number of electors of ibis District to offer
myself as a candidate to represent you In the
House of Commons, tn which rccptest I have
much pleasure fn complying, I hug to state tbat
should you do me the honor to elect me as your
representative whilst givingthepreseutOoiern-
ment my free nnd independent support, I would
do my utmost to favor the following amongst
the many measures that I consider would he
beneficial to the interests of this Province and
the Dominion at large.
To urge the further improvementso[ the navigation or the Eraser and other rivers, the protection of their banks, the Improvement of any
harbors in this District, and the const ruction of
canals where necessary for tlie purpose of
allowing farmurs and others every facility to
reach market.
To encourage agriculture by protecting all
such articles as can bu produced In this Province, and to lower duties on all that cannot,
and which lire absolnleiy the necessaries ot life,
and increase thu tariff on luxuries so that thu
consumer would bu even taxed less than ul present.
To increase the representation In proportion
to the wealth and Importance of this District.
To increase and have adequate mail service to
alt portions of ihe Province and free letter delivery in cities.
No diminution 111 the Chinese Restriction
Aet.
To have the Fishing Regulations amended to
meet Ihe requirements of this Province.
To have a Dry-Dock constructed at some suitable point on the Mainland to meet the growing
demands of tliis District.
To urge the exchange of Lands in Peace River
for the Lands lu the Railway Rett;
And that Mining Machinery he admitted free
nf duly until such Is manufactured in the Dominion.
To appoint efficient Immigration agents In all
Important localities.
To urge the Dominion Government to contribute to iiiake Roads and Brldgus through
Dominion lauds.
To urge Immediate 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 for over
twenty years and knowing its requirements, I
should be In a position to advocate your Interest s, and also my having had the honor to be
your representative for tlie last four years in the
Provincial Legislature would place me in a position of knowing something of Legislative
routine.
1 hope to visit each polling station during tho
canvass and more fully explain my views on
the various topics of the day. wlifcli  would bu
impossible lo do lu a short address.
I have the honor to be,
Gentlemen,
Your obedient servant,
dwniylJitc WM. II. LADNER.
TO THE ELECTORS
 OF	
New Westminster District,
GENTLEMEN:—As I have already announced,
I beg to oiler mysi'lf as a candidate for the seat In
the Commons made vacant by the death of our
lute member, and I come before you as a supporter of the (ioveruincnt of Sir John Macdonald, reserving to mysell, of course, the right to
aet independently should the action of the Government iu any matter seem prejudieal to our
Interests.
I would strongly urge immediate attention tn
thi* Improvement of tlie River where required,
for ihe protection of tho rich agricultural lands
of the District, nnd if elected, I shall at once
proceed to Ottawa and leave 110 stone unturned
lo secure the immediate appoint men I of a
competent engineer with a view to tho prompt
undertaking uf this most important work.
As you are aware, thu duty 011 certain kinds
of mining machinery has been remitted In this
Province as a special concession to British Columbia on account of iho speoial conditions obtaining here. I would strongly urge ihe further
application of this principle ot special tariil'ar-
range men ts, so ns tu relieve consumers of goods
which must bo Imported, while preserving the
protect ion of our agricultural and other iu-
teresls.
'Ihe land laws nf the Dominion, having been
framed without close consideration of our requirements, are In many points utisiiltutile, for
example in tho conditions un to clearing. I
would endeavor to secure Immediate reform in
this Important matter.
Subsidies having been granted to railways lu
the various Provineesof lho Dominion, I should
urgently present tho eli.itt._- to similar assistance
of railways within our own Province.
Should the City of New Westminster decide to
build a bridge across the Fraser, I should use
my best endeavors to obtain a substaniiiil subsidy for Ibe work, urging that an undertaking
of this character should rank with canals and
railways as one entitled to national aid.
The next census will undoubtedly show such
1111 increase in the wealth and population of this
District as will constitute 1111 iindeniablo claim
to increased rcprcMuiitution iu the Commons.
Thut claim, if elected, I shall support to the utmost of my ability.
Although, with tho growth of tho District,
the mail service bus been improved and extended, it still lags far behind our requirements.
I should give special attention tn this partof
yonr representative's work, feeling thai it is
one which is of vital importance.
I should urge the enactment of suoh fishery
regulations, especially in the issuing of licences,
as would, without any injustice to the canneries, tho Importance of which to the prosperity of
the District all must recognize, fully protect
the free Hsher11.cn. and encourage tlie settle-
incut amongst 11s of Ihe greatest possible mini-
bcrof (hat Industrious and hardy cluss of men.
All enactments and regulations for the protection of while labor would receive my hearty
support. '
Continued work towards the Improvement of
the harbors of New Westminster and Vancouver, and the ctHdcm lighting and buoying of
the same, Is a matter which would have my
closest attention at all times.
lu a word, I should constantly urge upon the
Government the wisdom of a liberal policy in
public works lu (his District, the vast resources
of which make it certain that such a policy
would he amply justified by results.
Trusting to have (he opportunity of seeing
every elector before polling day,
1 am, iiciitli'iuen,
Very sincerely yours,
