Hunting A Murderer.
Nbw Yohk, .Tune 3.—Two distinguished pussongors, Francois Barbier and
Alplioi.se Dumont, noted detectives of
the Paris Secret Service, have come
over from Paris under fictitious names
to run down the murderer of Marie Gag-
mil, the beautiful young woman who
was murdered iu her apartment in the
Kite De Provence, several weeks ago.
Mario I iagnol was a groat favorite with
tbe young gullants of the French capital.
slie'luid hosts of admirers, but she scorn-
ued the attentions of the wealthiest
bankers to take up with a young American of doubtful reputation, who was
widely known as "Petit Americane de
la belle Gagnol." The latter, is des*
cribed us a short, thickset man of dark
complexion and thirty years of age. He
always carefully avoided coming in contact with Americans in Paris, and in*
variably represented himself as being
an Englishman. The French detectives
are furnished with a full description of
tlie mysterious "Gaston," who Is supposed tube in hiding in Montana, and
they accordingly left for Helena to-day.

A Clever Kascel.
Logassi'oht, Ind., June 3.—James
Christie, a well-known young farmer
near Fletcher's Lake came to thiB city
recently and obtained $800 from several
banks on notes to which he forged the
names of farmers living in his neighborhood. Christie then called on an insurance agent and took out a policy of
$5,000 on his life. While the policy was
being written out Christie purchased a
suit of clothes, shoes, hat, etc. Going
homo he gave the policy to his wife and
ate his supper. About 8 o'clock a
neighbor called t«nd the two went swimming in a lake near by. Christie swam
out into deep water before his
companion undressed. In a few
minutes Christie called to his
friend on the bank saying that lie
bad cramps and to get a boat that was
at hand and come to his rescue. Before
this could be done Christie had disappeared. The lake was dragged for two
days and nights in soarch of the bodyt
but unsuccessfully. Christie's clothes
were found ou the bank where he took
them off, and yesterday there was discovered the tracks of a barefooted man
leading from the lake toward Chrietie'i
houw. A peculiarly shaped toe which
plainly marked itself in the foot-prints
which tallies with Christie's foot, settles
the suspicion in tho minds of the neighbors that Christie a made his way home
naked while his friend was getting the
boat to go to his rescue, and after reaching home donned the new outfit which
he had purchased and left the country.
Christie was heavily in debt:
Another Lucretla Borgia-
Yikeland, N.J., The wife of Daniel
Lockwood, a well-to-do fanner residing
in Vine Road, was arrested recently on
the charge of trying to poison her bus-
band by placing morphine in hii teacup.
Lockwood discovered the powder as his
wife was about to pour out the cup of
tea for him. He snatched the cup
away from her and took the powder out
and gave it to his daughter, who took It
to a physician to have it analyzed. Mr.
Lockwood has beeu married to this his
Becond wife about a year. He is 00
years and his wife 45 years old. He
camo to Vinelund from \ irginia. Mrs.
Lockwood was given a hearing this
morning. She was the most composed
person in the room and did not betray
the least emotion or irritability. Her
husband occupied a seat uear by. His
sons, Arthur and Maurice, and his son-
in-law, Elliott Cogswell, all swore that
he came to them and asked them to
have his wife arrested as he was afraid
Bhe would kill him. There is a good
deal of feeling here favorable to Mrs
Lockwood. Many claim she is tho victim of a conspiracy on tho part of her
husband's children, who want to get
her out of the way. Mr. Lockwood was
recalled later for tbe purpose of giving
additional testimony against his wife.
but he refused to say anything prejudicial
to Mrs. Lockwood and created a sensation and dumbfounded the lawyers for
the prosecution by saying that it was
his children who advised him to make
the charge against his wife, instead of
he asking bis children to make it. The
lawyers then virtually threw up the case,
stating that Lockwood had been induced
by some pressure to change hiB statements made previous to Mrs. Lockwood's
arrest.   She was discharged.
Toronto Treats tlie Duke.
ToitosTo, May 31.—The Prince's vibU
here has beeu a very pleasant affair,
and the Koyal party left this morning
for the Falls, apparently well satisfied
with their treatment bore. They will
return again to-morrow for a few hours,
nud proceed in the evening to Montreal.
The Duke, being interviewed, spoke of
the pleasure he und received in his visit,
and tbe eagerness with which he bad
taken the Canadian route from India.
Being asked what part the C. P. li.
would play in a military expedition, he
Jaid the matter was altogether too problematical, and, besides, lie was not at
liberty to discuss such a subject. One
of the best incidents of the reception of
tbe duke was the Masonic gathering
and address last night, in which the
Prince was made an honorary member
of Iron lodge, and signed the roll, all
parties joining hands and singing "Auld
Lang Syne" at the close.

[From Our Special War Qorretixnldcnt.)
GliiLMWAcK, June 3, 1800.
Tho str. Delaware yesterday morning
had a more than usually precious luud
aboard. Apart from tlie half it dozen
candidates for election to the Provincial
Parliament, (oil a mission of love and
for the spread of electoral and political
knowledge among tlie heathen (.lectors
of tbe up river districts), were half a
dozen provincial officials, also on it mission to the up river electors. Promises
made spine 4 years ugo and never carried out were revived yesterday by the
appearance of these gentlemen,' who
were detailed to lay out roads, survey
for bridges and instil a genoral feeling
of confidence that the Govornmept intended doing something at last, lint
the hope of deluding the electors by
these tactics is futile; they are not to bo
mislead into any belief that the show of
work is to be permanent or to be curried out at all, und they wisely wait for
the proof of the old adage in' this instance that "actions speak louder than
words." By the time the steamer
reached Chilliwack six candidates were
aboard, aud consequently politics were
hot. Immediately after landing a grand
rush was made for the Town Hall at
Centreville and soon after the meeting
was called to order. Mr. George W.
Chadsey was elected to the chair, and
ably filed the position, being us fair and
impartial as any meeting could desire.
It was arranged that the candidates
should Bpcuk in alphabetical order, and
the chairman called on Mr. John C.
Henderson to open the ball. Tho bull
was packed with the electors of Chilliwack and Sumas, nnd a more intelligent
sea of faces no orator would choose to
address. Throughout the meeting it
was plain to the observer that the independent candidates were the favorites of the audience, and nt no time
could it be said that tlie Government
side met with applause. Mr. Hender-
son's local popularity insured for him a!
good hearing, but it was his personal
popularity, not his political platform
that won him applause. The sentiment
of tho meeting was not with the policy
of the Government, but decidedly
against it, and more particularly wns
this noticeable whon the speakers referred to the redistribution measure.
Mr. Henderson in coming forward was
greeted with applause. He said he hud
beon invited to stand for election by the
united population of Chilliwack und
Sumas, and had consented to, their
wishes. He cume out squarely ub u
Government candidate for several reasons. First: he believed the Government' policy good, (air und liberal;
secondly, because lie had been sent to
Victoria several times to get money
from the Government und had never been
refused. He was in favor of borrowing
money for improvements to roads aijd
bridges, und tor dyking und reclaiming
lands; and would endeavor to huve a
good ferry placed on Vedder Creek. If
the Government failed to introduce a
proper Redistribution measure he would
vote against it, and defeat it if possible.
Regarding a railway through the district, he would endeavor to have one
constructed from the coast eastward.
Mr. Henderson concluded by saving that
he did not wish to be elected by the
"skin of his teeth," buthe wanted the
people of Chilliwack and Sumas to show
tbat they were able to eloct their man
with a good majority.
Mr. Herring came to the question
promptly on taking the platform. He
favored rep. by pop. or separation should
that not be obtainable, and would endeavor if elected to bring this pleasure
before the House and have it passed.
He considered the Redistribution Bill as
it stands ut present a great injustice
to the Lower Mainland particularly, and
went exhaustively into figures to prove
his assertions. Touching the Municipal
Act he favored increasing the grants to
municipalities, and promised to support
a liberal roads, bridges nml railway
policy, and promised to work for other
good measures. He was liberally applauded on resuming his seat.
Reeve Kitchen next cume forward and
was greeted with a storm of applause.
He opened out vigorously, and during
the course of his speech'was liberally
applauded. He came out on the straight
independent ticket, because the present
Government had not acted fairly towards
this constituency. He would not stand
out us an Opposition candidate for tbe
reason that tne party in Opposition today had no policy—no platform—and be
could ally with no such combination.
He took the field because he had been
urged to come out, and for the reason
that he did not believe John Robson or
his Government should be endorsed.
He had several reasons for this latter
statement. Hon. John Robson had
acknowledged that tho Redistribution
BUI was a bad one and not just to this
District; but there wus no guarantee
that the injustice would he remedied.
TliOBe who rule us now will rule us for
the next four years if Mr. Robson's
Government is returned to power, und
by returning tho Government again it
would be a plain acknowledgement that
we wished to be kept in the same sub-
■orviont position. Alberni had nol
been given representation by population,
and neither had the Gulf Islands, and
lie asked bow these two constituencies
would compare with one little corner of
Westminster District; the comparison
would not be iu favor of the new constituencies (applause.) He would therefore ask the electors to send a solid
front of Independents to fight for the
righting of the District's wrongs. He
had been accused of being bitter against
the Government, butitwas not so. Hon.
John Robson enme into tiie District and
pulled the wool over people's eyes
made all sorts of promises and never
fulfilled them. At Brownsville he liud
asked the Hou. John Robson if he had
not promised to have the proceeds of
of the 45,000 acres set aside for the reclaiming of overflowed laud, and ho had
denied ever giving utterances to any
such statement. He asked tbe audience
if Hon. Mr. Robson promised this (cries
of yes, yes.) Before the last election
Mr. Robson hnd promised that the Government would take up the improvements in the municipality as suggested
by the Council. Had he done so? No,
and clause No. 1 on that list had not
been fulfilled to this dny. This wns the
way the Government had kept its promises. The speaker and Mr. Recce had
gone to Victoria on an important mission, but had been given no satisfaction
by the Government. Thnt wns not
right and very bad policy on tho pnrt of
the Government in treating with such
unimportant municipality as Chilliwack.
Mr. Kitchen then touched on the general land policy of the Government,
which he described as bad, nnd favoring
tho speculator instead of the settler (applause.) Giving tho land to be locked
up instead of to themen whobuildup the
country by their energy and industry.
He felt strongly on the injustice done to
this District, and would do all in his
power lo bring about a new state of affairs. He favored a general liberal
policy in tlie construction of roads and ,
bridges and general improvements, and
concluded by asking the electors to give
him ii good support.
Mr. Chester Chadsey—Did you hear
Mr. Hobson promise to set aside tlie
money from tho 45,000 ncres for dyking
purposes?
Mr. Kitchen—Yes, I did!
Mr. Chadsey—I doubt it.
At this point a dozen or more gentlemen rose uud declared they had heard
Mr. Hobson make tbat statement, and
the speaker took his seat triumphantly
amidst thunders of applause.
Mr. Kirkland was the next speaker.
He favored the general policy of the
Government, but would not support
such a redistribution measure as tbe
one lately passed. The Government
hud been liberal in voting appropriations
for mads, bridges and railways, but he
wns aware the development of the country wus still in its infancy. If elected,
the dyking of the Frnser River would
command hi*, earnest attention, aud he
would introduce measures tending to
tlie benefit of the agricultural interests
of the district.
Mr. Punch was well received ou taking the platform. He said lie was an
old resident of the district, and verv
largely interested in its growth and prosperity. He favored tho division of the
district into ridings, and a more liberal
share of representation iu Jihe House.
Tho district is entitled to larger grants
for public improvements, and he would
wpvk for more liberal appropriations
wore lie elected. He would endeavor to
have the Fraser and Pitt Rivers bridged
so us to give the farmers on both sides
of the river free access to market. The
immigration of Chinese he was opposed
to, nnd their employment on public
works. He would advocate tbe borrowing of money to open up roads, and
would advocate the giving of reasonable
assistance to railroad construction from
Hope to the Gulf. On taking his seat
Mr. Punch was loudly applauded.
Mr. Sinclair had much pleasure iu
meeting the electors present, as they
represented the finest agricultural portion of the District. He then went over
his platform, promised to give a good
liberal support to all worthy projects,
and would endeavor to have a fruit cannery established at Chilliwack.
Mr. Sword was tho next speaker, and
received a cordial greeting as he took
the platform. He bad taken the field
as an Independent. For the two past
elections he had voted for the Government, but intended on the coming occasion to vote against the Hon. John
Robson. With the rest of the District,
he considered the redistribution measure
unjust to the Lower Fraser. Tlie measure had been passed in caucus by Government supporters, but if there had
been a sufficient number oflndependent
members in tbe House it would never
have been passed. He thought that
justice could have been done
this District without so greatly increasing the Island representation. Those
Districts could just as well have waited
as the important District of Westminster (hear, hear, und applause). By
sending Mr. Robson nud his supporters
to the next parliament the people would
be endorsing tbe Premier's action on the
Redistribution Bill, and it would be bad
policy to do that. Speaking of the Su-
mus Dyking Act, Mr. Sword said he hnd
a good recollection of the Hon. Mr. Robson promising to set aside the proceeds
of the 45,000 acres for dyking purposes,
nnd believed tbe promise had been made.
He would advocate a good liberal policy
for general improvements, and support
only such measures as were in the interests of the country. Great applause
greeted Mr. Sword at the close otitis address.
Capt. Thompson waB the last of the
candidates to address the meeting. He
mnde a really good address, declaring
himself on the Independent ticket, and
opposed to the Redistribution Bill at
every point. He did not believe this
District had beeu used fairly in the
matter of improvements as compared
with the manner in which the Island
was bolstered up, and would do all in
hia power to change this one-sided
system, if tlie electors returned him at
the polls. He would endeavor to have
the tax on wild lands largely increased
so that the most valuable sections of the
Province would not go into the hands of
speculators. Great applause greeted
tlie conclusion of his remarks.
Mr. D. McGillivray made a rattling
speech, censuring the action of the Government in several points, which were
received with much enthusiasm by the
audience.
After passing a hearty vote of thanks
to the chairman the meeting adjourned.
It was hoped tho Hon. John Robson
would be present, but he failed
to put in an appearance, and many
went away disappointed. The meeting
was called a "Hobson meeting" from
the fact that the most of his supporters
were supposed to be present, but the
sentiment of the meeting wns anti-Government, nnd there was no mistaking
the fact.
POLITICAL NOTES.
Mayor Brown meets the electors this
evening in Herring's Opera House, and
will fully explain his views to them.
Free discussion aud uo police intolerance will bo the features on the programme. Mayor Brown, unlike Hon.
Mr. Robson, is not afraid to stay and
answer questions. He will not jump
into his coat and bolt like a frightened
rabbit as soon as the meeting is over.
A copy of the voters' list has been
placed at the store of the Brunette Sawmills Co. for the convenience of voters
in ward 5 so thut they may examine the
list without the trouble of walking into
the city. This thought fulness of the
city clerk will be much appreciated by
the Sapperton electors.
Mayor Brown hus arranged to hold a t
meeting nt Sapperton on Wednesday '
evening, June Uth (a week from tomorrow), iu the dining room of the
Brunette Sawmills, which has been
kindly loaned for the purpose. Both
City candidates will probably speak on
that occasion.
In another column will be found a
very interesting report from our "special
war correspondent' of the rousing political meeting at Chilliwack yesterday,
by which it will bo seen that the Independent District ticket is plainly the
favorite in the field.

THE "BALANCE OF POWER."
That phrase "the balance of power,"
has been in everyone's ears and lips for
the last month or so, in connection with
the redistribution discussion. As related to that question, it menus, practically, the adding of an additional member to tbe representation of Vancouver
Island, for every now member it is
found necessary to give to the Mainland,
so ns to maintain tbe present relative
proportion—a difference of one member
—between the representation of, what
the ill-judging and mischievous section-
nlistlc theorists persist in considering,
the two separate sections of the Province—not perceiving, in their selfish
blindness, that such it theory, carried
to its //-logical conclusion, must lead to
the actual separation of the Province
into two parts.
But it is another, and n more reasonable and hopeful, "balance of power"
that it is the object of this article to
consider, namely, tho practical "balance
" of power" which, there is evory reasonable prospect to anticipate, the Independent party will hold in the next
Provincial Legislature, in the interests
of good legislation uud purity of administration. We do not venture upon this
hopeful forecast of a result, which every
well wisher of the Province should devoutly wish and earnestly strive to
bring about, without some good grounds,
and these grounds we shall proceed to
lay before our readers.
We would in the first place, ask the
careful perusal of the classified list, on
another page, of the Provincial nominations, according to the constituencies,
quoted from tbe chief Government organ, the Colonist. The classification of
the different candidates as to their political persuasions may, therefore, be accepted as just as favorable to the Government as it possibly can be. We shall
take the Colonist's classification us we
find it so far as it affects the Government
party, but shall make a few corrections
in its classification of Opposition and
Independent candidates. On the basis,
then, of the Colonist's classification, with
the modifications noted, we offer the
following table or analysis, showing the
probable—almost certain—standing of
the three parties in the new Parliament:
only a question of the extent of his
majority, which will be a rousing one.
We feel amply justified in anticipating
that Westminster District will return
the full Independent ticket of three, and
we would remark that the Colonitt is
again wrong in classing Mr. T. E, Kit'
chen us an Oppositionist, or, for that
matter, Mr. Sinclair either. Both are
Independents.
We have counted two out of the three
Yale District members on the Independent ticket, ns Mr. Semlin's election is
assured and'that of Mr. Irwin very probable, and troth will be found in the Independent party in the House.
Lillooet District's representation of
two we have divided between Government und Opposition, which is a reasonable forecast, with the Information at
our disposal.
Cariboo we have given to the Government, necessarily, as none but Government candidates are running.
West Kootenay, It will be seen, goes
Independent by default.
Enst Kootenay we have given to the
Government, although Col. Baker stands
about even chances of being defeated by
Mr. Law, the Opposition candidate.
Cassiar, from .information obtainable,
is almost certain to return Mr. R. Cunningham, the Opposition candidate,
who is a man of great prominence and
importance in the community. Besides
Cassiar is a kind of Opposition preserve, being the late constituency of the
redoubtable Mayor Grant of Victoria,
who has chosen on this occasion to contest the Capital constituency.
The reader can compare our computation, and analysis of the probable results of the'approaching election with
his own idea of the situation and probabilities. We submit tbat our figuring
is reasonable, and the result will not
vary n great deal. It will be seen that
three or four members more than we
allow can lie conceded to the Government, and still the People's Party will
practically hold the "balance of power.1
Tho outlook is certainly most encouraging. All who cast their votes for the
Independent tickets, will not only be on
the right side, hut on the strong side ns
well.

It will be clearly seen by the above
table that the People's Party will easily
hold the "balance of power" in the
next Parliament. By combining with
the Opposition, the Independents will
have a majority of five over the Government, and, counting them with tlie Government, the Opposition proper would,
of course, be in a hopeless minority.
Reviewing tbe analysis, it will be seen
that we have divided Victoria City's
representation of four equally between
Government and Opposition. It is conceded on all hands thnt Messrs. Beaven
and Grant will .be returned iu the Capital City, ond even Dr. Milne's election
is spoken of as very likely, so that we
are well within the mark In claiming
two out of the four members for the
Opposition.
Esquimalt, according to all accounts,
will very probably go, as we have put
it, one Government and one Opposition,
Mr. C. 15. Pooley representing tho
former, aud Mr. II. Ilelgcsen, beating
Mr. I). W. Higgins, aud whining a seat
for tbe Opposition.
Victoria District, with its two members, we have given lo the Government,
as we have not much reason to expect
the return of Mr. J. \V. Carey the single
Opposition candidate.
Cowichan, we have ulso, necessarily,
counted Government, as none but Government candidates ure In the field.
Nanaimo City we have, of course, put
down as Independent, as* Mr. T. Keith
who waB elected by acclamation for that
constituency, came before the electors
on the Independent ticket, and Is so
marked hy the Colonitt.
Nanaimo Dist., it will be seen, according to the Colonist, could not muster a
single Government candidate, so we
have allowed it one Opposition and one
Independent.
Alberni necessarily goes to the Government, there being only two Govern-
» ment aspirants for the newly-created
Beat.
The Islands of the Gulf wc have given
to the Opposition, there being two Gov
eminent candidates, and one Opposition,
and the latter, Capt. II. J. HobcrtBon,
of Moresby Island, being a man of considerable force and ability.
Comox, with its three candidates, one
for each party, we have given to the Independents; it is almost certain to go
either. Opposition or Independent, we
have reasons for believing.
Coming to the Mainland, Vancouver
City Ib first on the list, nnd we have
counted its two members as Independents. They are certain to be either Independents or Oppositionists. .lust
here we would notice that tho Colonitt
has classified Mr. F.C, Cotton wrongly, as
that gentleman, wo are convinced, has
not tacked himself to the Opposition
party, but, if elected, will be found in
tlio ranks of the Independents.
Westminster City, we need hardly
say, we have thu best of grounds for
marking Independent, as Mayor Brown's
election, ever since his candidature, has
been a foregone conclusion, nnd it Is

"CARIBOO JOE."
Dentil of au Old Vulirornlw ami Caribou
rloneer.
Yesterday evening there died at St.
Joseph's llospital iu Victoria, Mr.
Joseph Mutthews, well known along the
Pacific Coast as "Cariboo Joe." He
was, it is supposed, between fifty and
sixty years of age, and in his early days,
though not ono of the original "Argonauts" was prominent ns a California
gold seeker, und achieved considerable
success, not unfrequently "striking it
rich," but in the intervals contriving in
one way or another to scatter considerable quantities of what he had found
by his persistence and toil. About the
year 1862 he went to Cariboo, traversing
tho entire district as a prospector and
miner, sometimes on "grub stake" and
at others "on bis own nook." Among
other places from which be got out "his
pile" was Williams' Creek, and there,
as elsewhere, there was uo one more
willing to assist au unfortunate "down
on his luck," or a "tenderfoot" Mho waa
altogether out of his element. He was
a native of Cornwall, England, and
though at first inclined to be bluff with
strangers was, when known, discovered
to be hearty and whole-souled. His
days of prospecting are now over, and
he has gone to investigate that undiscovered country from whose bourne no
traveler ever returns. If there beany-
thing in the doctrine of compensation,
surely his many good qualities will make
up for the few weaknesses which he,
in common with us all, possessed, for it
can be said of him that hia very failings
leaned to virtue's aide. After leaving
the mines, which was necessitated by
the condition of his health, he became
an employee of the C. P. R. Co., and
C. P. st. Co.. subsequent to which he
waa an attache of one of tho hotels, his
death having being caused by blood-
poisoning, consequent on a fall.—Sim-
day's Colonist.

Tli* Sealing Queation.
A rumor wns current on the streets
to-day that a deputation of those interested in Bealing.matti.njhad interviewed
Capt. Hulton, of tho Amphion, ou the
queation ever uppermost in the mind of
Victorian scalers—tlie much-vexed sealing question. Enquiry wub made, but
little could be learned from parties here.
Capt. Hulton was cnlled upon In reference to the report, and said that no interview had been had by him with any
of the sealers. Further, Captain Hulton
statea that he is not authorized to listen
to any complaint on these matters and
could only be communicated with
through HiB Honor the Lieut.-Governor;
but even then he could not act unless
specially ordered by the Home Government. It wns nn order from the Home
Government that whenever a man-of-
war waa in a place where Bhe could communicate readily with the Home Government, the captain can never, except
in the extreineat cases, take upon himself to act in anyway calculated to be
construed as warlike. Captain Hulton
could not, if he hnd them, divulge any
orders from home, and the future
movements uf the Amphion nre a mystery as far aa he knows. He sincerely
hopes and believes that this matter of
the sealing question will be settled in all
good time by the Home Government,
and while in his position he has no
voice, he would aB a man advise moderation on the part of those engaged in tlte
industry. The three-mile limit should
not be passed, and masters of the sealing
schooners should not take advantage ol
thick fogs, and run across the limita,
and then plead ignorance of their position. He also hoped that no trouble
would arise, and personally did not
think it would. Able statesmen were
considering the matter, and it would be
I attended to justly. Further information
he could not give, even if he had it, and
from the tone of Captain Hulton's re-
I marks there is no probability that the
I Amphion will be oidered to enter into
I active warfare with the United States.—

Mr. Stewart a rancher, residing in the
District of Comox, had occasion to hunt
bne of his pigs, which had rambled into
the bush about two days ago, nnd get-
ling close to the hog ho waB surprised to
■oc a large blaek bear, endeavoring his

■he bold rancher, immediately made for
lim, but was met with the sudden blow
If an axe, whirled by the sturdy man of
liuscle, who luckily, had not left his
wine without the weapon    Bruin was
unoit stunned by the first blow, but
|lckty recovering himself, he renewed
. attack, only to bo mot by a brain
wiring blow again from tlie terrific
ree of the axe, in the hands of a man

j bruin, who bleeding freely from the

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
New Westminster City.
GENTLEMEN:—In response to a requisition,
numerously signed, which has been presented to
me, I beg to otter myself as representative of
this City In tbe Provincial Legislature.
I frankly confess that, aside from the great
question of the just distribution ot legislative
power, 1 would scarcely care to be a candidate.
If you do me the honor to elect me I shall make
thut question my first consideration at all times,
and In order to do this itis essential that I
keen quite free from any entangling alliances
witn cither Government or Opposition. But to
the people and the advocacy of the rights of the
people, in this matter and iu all others, I can
fully and freely pledge myself; and with thoao,
be they on what side of tho House they may,
who are animated by a similar spirit, I wlll work
cordially.
The present crisis demands special treatment.
Wc nf the Lower Mainland arc denied our Just
share of legislative power, and so long as that la
the case our truo policy, In my opinion—nay,
the policy which ourowu self-respect compels us
to adopt—Ib to return no man to the Legislature
who will not .mako tho righting of that wrong
his first business. It mny safely bo assumed
that those who shall tic found willing tn do
right in this matter, will be tho most likely to do
right In others also.
Notwithstanding the utmost devotion to this
Ilrst question, your representative will have to
deal with many other mutters, ami perhaps tt
will be suUlrlciU now to say on this point tuat I
believe there Is room for n good deal of work before the administration of public affairs can
claim to be what It should bo—government by
the people fur the people. I should earnestly en
deavor to do my shun, of that work.
IbolfoYO I may safely assume thnt you need
im assurnucc of my deen nnd ubldlng Interest In
cvcrvlhlng that mnkes for the prosperity oi New
Westminster City.
1 am, Gentlemen,
Very truly yours,
Uuiyltito .1. 0. BROWN,
TO THE ELEOTORS
—(IF THE—
Westminster Electoral District.
GENTLEMENl-As It is dlfflouH to arrange to
sec each Individual elector bofore .'lection day,
I wish to put beforo you the platform nn which
I stand whilst seeking your support.
Up to tbe Introduction of tho Constitution
Amendment Act, I should havo supported the
present Government, but   I now stand Inde
pendent of all parties on that measure, pledged
to obtain a fair and just Redistribution Act
Immediately after the publication of the census
returns; such aot to be based us nearly ns possible upon population, the abolition of tho balance oi power and tho division of districts into
one member constituencies. Outside Ibis pledge
1 claim the privilege of being allowed to support
nnv legislation of a lust nnd beneficial nature
which msvbc introduced by tho Government,
I will endci. >r to Impress upon the Government the necessity of the utmost liberality iu
the expenditure for the opening up of all agricultural districts and even, if necessary, to borrow monoy for this purpose.
The conservation of all nubile lands for actual
settlement, and the abolition of all salo of land
in large areas, will be one of tho chief objects I
shall hold In view, and to nlso assist In the
greatest amount of land being brought Into cultivation. I would advocate the Wild Land Tax
being raised to 2b cents per acre.
It wlll also be my endeavor to impress upon
tho Government the absolute necessity o( taking
steps to assist In tho reclamation of the Urge
area of land subject to overflow by tbe Fraser,
soas to render lt all fit for cultivation, fooling
sure that any money spent in that direction
will he a good Investment, as tho lands wlll be
greatly enhanced In valuo for assessment.
From the above you will ice I stand as a supporter of the Government, except on one measure, and feci sure tbat you will see that aa I
am u resident farmer In tho district our Interests nre Identical, and 1 hope to be able to
materially advance the interests of tho district
should yon honor me as your representative.
1 am, Gentlemen,
Yours Obediently,

of Mary street, between Prevost and
Carnarvon streets. Operations will be
begun nt once. It has been learned that
a tine, substantial brick block will be
built and some fine stores opened. The
idea of stores on Mary street must be
rather startling to the average
citizen, but this piece of modern enterprise only shows at what great strides
Westminster is marching forward in the
path of progress and development. Mr.

purposes mentioned above, <*ame up before the council laat night.

Church was hold last night and was
largely attended. Ice cream, etc., was
served and a vory enjoyable evening
generally was spent.
The str. Irving cleared for Chilliwack
this morning with an unusually heavy

many passengers. Among her freight
was a portable sawmill for Sumas, and a
heavy consignment of tin for the canneries.
The Bteamer Delaware arrived this

The first concert in St. Leonard's Hnll
takes place this evening. A fine programme of instrumental and vocal music
has been prepared, aud some of the
lending musicians of the City will present the same. Those who havo not
yet seen the interior of the hall would
do woll to go there to-night and hear its
sounding properties thoroughly tested.
Last evening the chief of polico drew
the attention of the Council to the
urgent necessity of having some regular
stand for licensed vehicles. The chief
stated iu his communication thnt the.
great increase of those vehicles on the
streets was seriously impeding regular
traffic. It iB to be hoped the City
Council will make a better choice than
the Victoria board, which allows a
string of hacks to stand up the middle
of Government street night nnd day.
And they do not ornament the thoroughfare in the least.
The City Brass Bund held practice iu
the Drill Shed last evening. Tho hand
occupied the stage whore good light can
he obtained. Quite a number of the
public strolled in to hear tho music aud
were much surprised aud pleased at the
efficiency shown by thu musicians.
They have made wonderful .progress
under their leador, Mr, Watson, whose
system of training will undoubtedly
soon produce a first-claBS hand from this
flue material he has in the present organization. The bandsmen seem to
take a very deep interest in thoir work
and give the loader's skilful dirortlotis
the closest attontion.

men at work preparing for thu removal
of those old land marks to a vacant lot
on Lome stroet between Dallas nnd
Agnes streets where thoy will be converted into dwelling houses. The new
court house will bo plnccd further out
in the street towards the City Hall than

It is learned ou unimpeachable authority that a large order for a complete
outfit for a Btcam laundry, has beon
placed by gentlemen in this city with a
celebrated eastorn firm of machinery
manufacturers. Tho company intend to
open up.a first-class steam laundering
establishment, fitted with all the latest
and most approved devices for the purpose, and capable of catering satisfactorily to the public of this city and of
Vancouver. The headquarters of the
company will be iu this city and they
expect to he in full runuing'order before
Christinas. Tho management of the
practical part of tho work will bo iu the
hands of a thoroughly experienced
laundry man from thu east. Tut: Columbian was the first to ndvocato pnb-
Hely this groat institution in this city,
and the hints which have beon thrown
out from time to time in these columns,
have not, it is gratifying to note, beeu
thrown away. Thero aro othor great
aud necessary modern institutions, the
necessity of which lu this city will be
pointed out by Thk Coi.i'miiiax in due
time,
CrVldren Cry for Pitcher's Castorhu
A Bicycle Club.
About a dozen gentlemen who have
been anxious to form a bicycle club met
in the offices Messrs. Mowat A Sloan
last evening to discuss preliminaries.
After talking the matter over for some
time a committee, consisting of Messrs.
Mclnnes, Port, Sloan and Turner, wns
appointed to frame a constitution for tho
club, which will be virtually the same as
the one iu Montreal, with the exception
of a few changes applicable to this City.
The committee have asked the council
to construct a bicycle path around the
park and no doubt the park commissioners, to whom the matter has been
referred, will grant the request, for it is
nn improvement which requires but
little expense. The committee will call
a second meeting sometime next week
or as soon as the rules can he drafted.
Mttglcsl Cordwuotl.
During the discussion on the Market,
or rather, the weigh scales, by-law last
night, Aid. Johnson advocated the propriety of having some definite cord wood
measure. He related an amusing instance in which a man employed a
Chinaman to get out 100 cords of wood
from the bush and when he got it to the
city lie sold 170 cords out of that 100.
Aid. McPhaden suggested that the wood
had beon cut dry and swelled with the
rain; another worthy alderman said this
was only another instance of the extraordinary trustfulness of our soil. Unfortunately the unscrupulous dealers
who thus shamefully rob the public will
have a chance to do so for some little
time yet, as it was found impossible,
under present circumstances, to bring
them  under the surveillance of the
weigh master.

Tlio Westminster Southern.
The work on the Southern line to the
boundary is being pushed forward with
great vigor and within a month or so
the whole line from Brownsville to Fairhaven will be ready for the railB. The
line from the boundary to Fairhaven is
all cleared and graded, and active work
is being performed in laying the ties,
while on this side of the boundary the
right-of-way is all cleared to within
three-quarters of a mile and graded to
within a mile and a half of the international line. The town of Blaine, B.
C, has been making wonderful strides
and it is said that there are already
about 2,000 people there, chiefly men
who are engaged on the construction of
the road.* The work of laying the ties
from Brownsville wrath will he commenced at an early date and the rails
are to he laid as soon as they arrive,
which will be toward the latter partof
next month.

Increased Traffic.
Most persons residing in tho City have
not  the slightest   conception of the
amount of freight and the number of
Sassongcrs passing to and fro over the
ifferent roads traversing the District
and terminating at the trunk road leading to Brownsville. A Columbian reporter in conversation with Mr. Charles
Walworth, who ritna a tri-weekly stage
to Hall's Prairie and the surrounding
country found out that this line had
commenced running last fall and had
met with the very greatest success. Mr.
Walworth says that since the opening
of spring, each week has brought him
increaseu roturns; adding, that very frequently ho wub obliged to leave freight
behind, nnd as an instance cited the cuse
of his return trip to the District whon
he had a full load of passengers and 8,-
000 pounds of freight, of which only 800
pounds of the latter could be taken.
And yet this and other trades about the
District could be doubly increased if our
merchants would drum it up as merchants in the other cities of the Province do.

An Intolerable Nuisance.
Mayor Brown last night instructed
City Clerk Robson to write the steamboat owners to tho effect that a little
less of their music in the middle of the
night would be more acceptable. His
Worship commented on tho intolerable
nuisance caused hy the howling of tho
Bteamboat whistles before 7 o'clock in
the morning and after 10 o'clock at
night, nnd hoped the owners would see
thoir way clear to moderate the same.
Tub Columbian haB again and again
voicod tho feeling of the people on this
matter, but no nbatment of tlie nuisance
can be noted. It might bo interesting
to those who perpetrate this barbarity,
to know that in certain other cities
under the British flag, they would get
one caution and if they dared repeat the
offence after that, they would be mulcted
to such au extent that they would almost as soon face Satan himself as their
own music at that price. Many people
in this city work hard on into the night
and retire to rest with their nerves completely unstrung. Their tortures can be
oetter imagined than described when
tho hideous and unnecessary uproar
caused hy tho departure of one or two
steamboats startles them from their
slumbers. It is to be hoped tho gentle
request from the Municipal authorities
will induce the steamer people to give
the other citizens of this town a chance
to live.

Boots Wlm Hue.
ii the Orange Hall, last night, a
meeting of the Scotchmen of the City
was held, Chief Alex. Ewen of tho Caledonian and St. Andrew's Society iu the
chair. A large and representative gathering of Scots was present, and before
tlie imniiiuwfiot tha evening wus commenced. Messrs. Geo. Robertson and
Fergus Lnidlaw favored the assemblage
with songs which wero very much enjoyed. Shortly after 8 o'clock tho chairman called tho meeting to order and
Mr. S. T. Macintosh read tho minutes
of the last meeting of the St. Andrew's
Society, which were adopted. The election of new members then took place,
and they were voted in by acclamation.
Eight new members were admitted and
duly certified. Several communications
woro then disposed of and arrears of
dues collected.
A committee was appointed to see
what arrangements could be made towards holding the next annual gathering, and report at the next meeting,
which will beheld the last Monday of
of the present month. Tho committee
is as follows: Messrs. Col. McGregor, G.
W. Grant and John Bule.
Another committee consisting of
Messrs. Geo. Robertson, 3 Stevens and
A. McPhee was appointed to look around
aud try to find a suitable hall wherein
to hold tho regular meetings of the
society.
Mr. 8. T. Mcintosh said ho regretted
vory much that owing to tho pressure of
his own private business he would have
to relinquish his post as secretary of the
society. Just when tho society wanted
his services most his business was most
urgent; it was unfortunate, but irremediable. Much sincere regret was expressed ou all hands at the decision of
the popular and efficient secretary,.and
Ins resignation was reluctantly accepted
and Mr. Geo. Robertson appointed his
successor by acclamation.
Mr. Robertson, in a very neat aud
telling speech, said that the meetings of
tho St. Androw'B Socioty must be inado
more attractive; those meetings should
not be merely dull business meetings
where a few dry communications were
read and accounts passed; something of
a literary, musical and entertaining
nature should be introduced and a choice
programme, short, but select, should be
offered at the meetings. Then the
society would flourish and its gatherings
would become noted as among the most
enjoyable soirees in the city.
Mr. Robertson was heartily applauded
for his advanced views, and it is quite
probable that his common-sense suggestions will be acted upon nt future meetings. Tlie meeting dispersed at 11
o'clock, everybody highly pleased with
the successful issue that had heen
reached.   ^^^^^^^^^^

TO THE ELEOTORS OF

UENTLEMEN:-I offer myself as a candidate
to represent you in tho Provincial Legislature,
on the platform suggested by tho Mainland Association, freo from any pledge lo either party.
I hold myself at liberty to give an Independent support to nny Government thut may Iw
chosen by tho people. As an elector, 1 think
tho District would make a mistake should the
electors condom, last session's Redistribution
Dill, bv returning cither the Hon. Mr. Robson,
or candidates hampered bv pledges to support
tils Uoveriunont, ns representatives of this constituency.
Mr. Kolison is standing fnr Cariboo as well us
for Westminster District, so thero is no need to
fear that tho Province wilt be deprived ot his
services should thu majority of the electors
agree with mo on this point.
I am In favor of dividing Westminster District
iuto ridings.
Any measures that appear to me to be for tho
benefit of the Province would have my support,
and I think that somo safe scheme might So devised by which the credit of tbo Provinco might
bo lent for locnllinprovements.
Tho contract system ought to be more strict!v
cnrrled out.
1 should also llko to sec somo modification of
tho municipal system, by which localities out-
sido of municipalities might have more dlreet
control o( tho expenditures in their neighborhoods, so as to secure the most economical and
eftlcicut disposal of such fundi and relieve the
central Government from the Invidious task of
deciding between different claims,
.Speculation in wild lands, whether lumber,
agricultural, or mineral, should bo discouraged.
Hhoulil you elect me I will domydutv to the
best of my ability, und trust you will give mo
credit for honesty of purpose, even should vou

NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C., JUNE 3, 1890.
NUMBER 103.
TO THE ELECTORS
—or—
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to All the vacancy caused by tho death of our lute
representative (the much-respected D,
•Chisholm) und as I havo stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before yon
some of my views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in the
noar future for conaidcrution.
I have been asked what I mean when
I announce myself as a Liberal-Conservative: I reply, "Thut by nature aud
education I am a Cutisemitive, but a
residence of over .10 years in this Provinco and much intercourse with our
American cousins hat. had the efieet of
changing nuiuy of my views, mid given
ine liberal i.fcus, therefore 1 claim I am
a Libera 1-Connervative." Owing to the
fact thut party lines are not defined in
British Columbia iu. they ure in tbe older
provinces, 1 consider that our representatives ure not in duty bound to givo u
through-thick-and-thin support to uny
party, but tbey should go lo Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to ull
good m&isures which may be brought
before them, and to consider tl»e prosperity of tbe Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, and
should a measure come beforo them
which tbey consider in any way detrimental to the interests of this Provinco
they Bhould take their stand like truo
men and vote against it.
lam opposed to a certain extent, to
the Turin, or National Policy its applied
to British Columbia. We ure a long
way fioin tho eentreB of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we cannot produce at homo can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice froai our near neighbors over the
line, and in many cases tbe articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from tbo Eastern Provinces;_ in
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machiuerv, Wooden Ware nnd other articles are brought from tbo States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our fooil supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and are met with such heavy duties
that beads of families in this Province
pay more than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
We have bud example to the point during the last three months. It wo had
not received a good supply from California tbere would have been a meat
famine; as it in wu um m.w «"d lmvo
been paying 26 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the same state of
affairs is likely to obtain again after any
'long and severe winter, for iu spite of
"Protection" for the last eleven years
our Btock raisers are little better prepared to meet bard winters than they
were before, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped tho benefit of the
N. P. are the manufacturers, As a true
Britisher I should like to seo "Freo
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question, I would advocate "Reciprocity"
in many articles which are at present iu the Tariff lists, as 1 think
it would be beneficial to both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go down so deep into his
pockets to buy what ho needs to eat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
have a revenue to curry on the affairs of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more and get at the pockets of the
richer classes who can better, afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of tbe late Mr. OI.if_.iol.ii, he was unable
to ho in liis place this session, and very
little during the previous one, so wo of
this District have been practically unrepresented, aiid our local wants have
not been brought before the notice of
the House. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
been iu his seat, I do not think the Postmaster-General would have been left so
much in the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Fraser as he seems to have beep
when he proposed to cut oil' the mail
subsidy from that important route, and
there are other places in the District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider should receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope that iu the near future our
District will reach tbat 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 .loot)
rpiles of territory, and when the census
returns are in I think the necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation,
Tbe protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Humas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receivo my earnest
attention, also tbe works for improving
tbe channel at the Saudheuds, in view
of the expected increase in our shipping
interests.
I consider the Province should have
control over all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
great importance to thiB District in particular, I feel should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through tbo Delta lands from thu mouth
of the Serpentine to Fraser River, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
ono from the Eraser Kiver to Port
Moody, which hus often been suggested
to me.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, uud encouraged judiciously,
.Dist at present tt is coming hero fast
enough; I would not like to seo a large
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
There are ma'ny other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would make
this address too long. I hope to see as
many as possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
moro fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvaBS and will send due notice of time and placo of meetings.
During my long residence in the Province I have travelled through much of
It, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
Houbo in a practical, business-like manner.
Bhould I have the honor to be elected
I assure you I shall watch over the interests of this District faithfully and to
the best of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go as'a true British Columbian und to do my duty aB such.
Yours faithfully,
WM, B. TOWNSEND.

TO THE  ELECTORS
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN :-As I have already a»oounced,
I beg to oiler myself us a candidate^ the sent In
the Commons made vacant by'He death Of our
lute member, and I come hf^rc you us nsiip-
porter of the Govorninot"?'Sir John Slnedon-
ald. reserving to mvs^l. of course, the ri(jht to
net independent!..-should tho action of the Gov-
eminent In m>/ mutter seem prejudleal to our
interests.
t would strongly urge immediate attentlen to
the improvement of the River where rcolilred.
for tlie protection of the rich agricultural lands
of the District, and if elected,! shall »t once
proceed to Ot tu wn and leaveM>t—>■ Surnefl
to secure the ii___hi)~io ^/pointmeiit of a
cotiiis'tent engniSSHvuh a view to the prompt
undertaking of this most Important work.
As you ure aware, the duty on certnlh kinds
of mining machinery has been remitted in this
Province ns a special concession to llrltlsh Co-
lumliiu ou account of the special conditions obtaining horo, I would strongly urge the further
application of this principle of special turlll'arrangements, so as to relieve consumers of goods
which must bo imported, whllo preserving the
protection of ..ur agricultural and other Interests.
The land laws of the Dominion, having been
framed without close consideration of onr requirements, are iu ninny points unsuitable, for
example in the conditions as to clearing. I
would endeavor to secure immediate reform In
th!-; Important matter.
Subsidies having boon granted to railways In
the various Provinces of the Dominion, I should
urgently present the claims to similar assistance
ot railways within our own Province.
Should the City of New Westinluster decide to
build a bridge across the Eraser. 1 should use
mv best endeavors to obtain a substantial subsidy for the work, urging that un undertaking
of this character should rank with canals and
railways as one entitled to national aid.
The next census will undoubtedly show such
au Increase in the wealth and population of this
District us will constitute all undeniable claim
to Increased representation In the Commons.
That claim, If elected, I shall support to the utmost of my ability.
Although, with the growth of the District,
the mall service bus been improved and extended, It still lags fur behind our requirements.
I should elve special attention to this part of
your a'preseutatlve's work, feeling that it Is
one which Is of vital importance.
I should urge the enactment of such fishery
regulations, especially in the issuing of licences,
us would, without uny Injustice to the cunncr-
ies.tbe importance of which to thu prosperity of
the District all must recognixe, fullv protect
the freo fishermen, and encourage the settlement nmoiiL'st iih of the greatest possible number of that industrious and hardycluss of men.
All enactments and regulations for the protection of white labor would receivo my hearty
support.
Continued work towards the improvement of
the harbors of New Westminster and Vancouver, and the elHi-leul lighting nnd buoying of
the same. Is a mutter which would have my
elosest attention at nil times.
In a word, I should constantly urge upon the
Government tho wisdom of.« liberal policy In
public works In this District, the vnst resources
of which make it certain that such a policy
would be limply justilled by results.
Trusting to have tbe opportunity of seeing
every elector before polling day,'
I am, Gentlemen,
Very sincerely yours,
dwinyHtc GORDON E. CORBOULD.
