A   Mb  Washout.
Golobuoho, Maine, May 16, — The
largest washout that has boon known
here for more than fifty years occurred
Wednesday. The upper dam, two and
a half miles north of the county road,
with a depth of 15 feot and an area of
five square miles, went out with a full
head on, while tho pond below was running over. This dam has been considered unsafe for two years. At about 11
o'clock in the morning Ernest Whit-
tal-or, a lad of 16, living half a mile bo-
low the dam, happened to be looking in
the direction of tho dam at the moment
nud saw tho first plunge of the water.
Without waking he ran at breakneck
speed to the village sounding the cry of
alarm. Men left their work and women
camo into tho streets. Tho wator became knee deep in the streets, and for
two hours there was watching and waiting nnd tho greatest anxiety by the on-
tire community. But strange to say
none of the mills yielded, though nearly
all the dams on tho stream disappeared,
besides tho bridge and aome cordwood.
The Dead.
WiLKESHARRE, Pa., May 16.—Exploring parties found 10 dead iu the mine.
Six are still missing and probably they
also are dead.
Fourteen lteiioueil.
Wilkkshahrk, Pn., May 16.—Fourteen
men have beeu taken out of the cave in
Hartford mine alive. There is great rejoicing among the friends and relatives
of the rescued men, who toll thrilling
stories of tho efforts they made to keep
themselves alive.
A Brutal Encounter.
This morning Constable Armstrong,
of the provincial jail, left the City for
Joucs' Landing to arrest 0. H. Preston,
for having committed an alleged aggravated assault on E. T. Parker. The
trouble, it appears, grew out of an argument which the men had over some old
grudge, and with the usual result—a
rough and tumble scrimmage. The two
men fought liko tigers and used every
means to disable and disfigure one another. Finally Preston got Parker
where he wanted him and seizing Parker's car between his teeth, bit the top
oft the member clean off. Not content
with this horrible cruelty, Preston then
did his beat to gouge out ono of Parker's
eyos, aud applied his fingers and thumb
so vigorously as to leave ugly bruises
and abrasions all round that organ.
Jonesvillc ia acquiring a notoriety almost as great as Leadville or Tombstone
in the early days, and it does seem as if
the gentle burghers up thore do not
light for fun. Tho caso will probably
como up in the Distriot Court to-morrow.

Ottawa, May 14.—MeisrB Anderson
Bros. A Co., who have the three remaining buffaloes of Warden Benson's
largo herd at Winnipeg, Intend to ship
the animals to a ranch near Lake 'Winnipeg, and go iuto buffalo raising extensively. They nre endeavoring to buy
some animals that are in the Northwest,
und are negotiating with a man iu Montana for three or four buffalo cows. If
they are successful, Manitoba will, iu a
few years, have another large herd of
these valuable animals. Warden Benson's herd, which waB sold lust yoar to
Mr. Jones, of Kansas, increased in nine
years from nine thoroughbred nnd four
half-breed animals to 138 lioad. Of
these he sold 82 to Jones for about $15,-
000, and obtained a correspondingly
food price for tho others. Before Mr.
ones got his herd out of the country it
hnd increased to 100 head, 10 calves
having been born after he he had made
the purchase.   When ho closed the bnr-
f;ain he went back to the States, organ-
zed a company, and sold a quarter interest for {60,000, and ho expects to
double that sum from tho sale of animals, meat, etc., within the next 15
years. The herd is now at Salt Lake,
and new purchases are being mado at
overy opportunity.

The German ship J. H. Hustede,
which loaded salmon at this port last
fall for London, has never been heard of
since sho left this port, now two hundred
and two days ago. Yesterday Mr. Robt.
Ward received a cablo from London to
the effect that it was believed sho had
been lost, and eighty-five guineas per
cent, hnd been offered as premiums on
her insurance. Tliis would Indicate
that hopes of her safe arrival iu port had
been abandoned, as the premiums have
risen gradually from 50 per cent, to 85.
Mr. Ward is of the opinion that she has
met with some disaster, as she carried
an excessively heavy load of salmon, the
largest in fact ever takou in one bottom
from the port. The Hustede had no
ballast, her captain, who was vory obstinate In the matter, Baying that she
needed none, as she was stiff enough
without it, and it was against tho advice
of several nautical peoplo that she went
to sea without ballast, although some
say that her model was one which did
not require ballast to keep her upright,
Capt. J. G. Cox to-day told a 2¥m« reporter that thero waB still some time for
tho Hustede to show up, as instances of
oven longer passage had come under his
notice, lie bplievcs the Hustede to bo
a safe risk yet, and thinks that unless
she has been in a collision she will soon
bo at London. Probably adverse winds,
or tho loss of one of her masts, has boen
the reason of her delay.— Wednesday't

The Jubilee Hospital.
A meeting of tho Jubilee Hospital
building committee was held yesterday
afternoon, at which tho final accounts of
the contractors and builders were pass-
ed for payment subject to audit. The
fencing, painting and furnishing is progressing rapidly, and the institution will
soon be roady for the reception of patients. Consideration is still being
given to the question of lighting. On
the application of the directors of tho
Royal Hospital yesterday permission for
the removal of the patients from that
institution at their own convenience
waB granted. It is hoped that all will
be comfortably settled in their new homo
by Tuesday next. The formal opening
of tho new hospital will be very close to
that date, and there Is a prospect that
Victoria's distinguished gueBt, H. R. H.
the Duko of Connaught, wilt be induced
to grace that occasion. All the officers
and attaches of the Royal Hospital will
accompany tho patients to the Jubilee,
and will be retained subject to the approval of the Board. Tho genoral committee at thoir mooting yesterday remitted the poualty of $1,800 Incurred by the
contractors, in consideration of the difficulties, In the shape of bad weather, etc.,
that had to bo overcome At tbo present timo tho finance committeo are
short about $8,600, to which amount
some $6,000 will be added by tho furnishing and painting accounts, so that
whon tbe hospital is taken possession of
it will only be about $15,000 In debt.—

OTTAWA JOTTINGS;
General Laurie Will Donate ill* Mileage to the Henefit of His Constituents
•-•The Newfoundland Deputation.
[Prom Onr Own Correspondent. ]
Ottawa, May 0.—Gen. Laurie, M. P.,
has intimated his intention of donating
the $600 drawn from the Dominion
Treasury as mileage front London to
Ottawa, supplemented with an additional contribution of bis own, to tbe
establishment of a fishermen's benefit
association for his S hell.ou rue constituents.
A delegation from Newfoundland arrived in town to-day to bcc tbe Government and enlist its support in the struggle of New found la ml against the encroachments of thd French upon tlie
west coast of the colony. By tbe treaty
of 1713 the French were given the righ't
to catch lish and dry them upon the west
coast, Subsequently the French claimed
exclusive rights to that coast and practically Hbut out the rest of the colony
from it. Tho eodlishing lias greatly
declined but tbe French commenced
catching and canning lobsters which the
Newfoundlanders claimed was never contemplated iu the treaty. In order to
temporarily settle tho dispute, without
consulting the Island, concluded a modus,
rivendi with France, granting thom the
privilege of lobster earning. The colonv
has suffered greatly fn i this competition and sent one depu .tion to England
lo endeavor to have the modus n'rendi
repealed and the encroachments of the
French generally, restrained. The deputation in this city will endeavor to
enlist the sympathy of the Canadian
Government and persuade it to use its
influence with the British Government
to get justice for tho Islanders.
Mr. Rykert, having resigned his seat
for Lincoln, the Speaker has issued his
warrant to the clerk of the Crown in
chancery for a writ ordering a new election at once.
Some Ottawa Conservatives arc encouraging Alderman Fnrroll to take the
field as a labor candidate for the Ontario Legislature with the view of aiding
the Conservative Equal Rights nominee.
Mr. F. H. Brydges, of tlie Manitoba
and N. W. Railway, has addressed a
memorandum to the Hon. John Curling,
Minister of Agriculture, urging a system
of assisted immigration for the settlement of tho Northwest, at tho rate of
$100 passage money to each family of
five, tho Government only to be responsible therefor upon proof of actual
settlement.
A deputation representing tho Halifax Board of Trade, waited upon the
Minister of Justice on Saturday forenoon, nnd in tho afternoon wero heard
by Sir John Macdonald and a committeo
of the Privy Council in reference to the
Grand Trunk's proposed all-Canadian
short lino to tho seaboard. Thu delegates urged the necessity of granting a
bonus to the connecting lino as an alternative to the Harvey and Salisbury
line. Also that the line be strictly first-
class, so as to ensure a high rate of speed
for through traffic. Subsequently the
deputation interviewed Mr. Schreiber
in reference to improved terminal facilities at Halifax.
The Banking Bill was passed in the
House yesterday.
Mr. W. A. Webster, Dominion Immigration Agent, arrived in tbe city yesterday from Winnipeg. "An old settler
told me the other day," he said, "that
this has been the best spring since the
famous year of 1880, owing to the abundance of moisture aud absence of unpleasant winds. On Monday evening,"
continued Air. Webster, "I finished my
tour through Southern and Central
Manitoba. The records show that ono
million acres have been seeded to wheat
in tho province. If the averago yield on
this acrenge iB but 20 bushels, which is
only an ordinary crop and below the
probable returns, there will be a total
wheat crop in Manitoba this fall of
twenty million bushels. On every side
I saw abundant evidence of confidence
and cheerfulness among the farmers,
Everywhere tho breaking plow could be
seenousily preparing tho now prairie
for another year's crop. So mnch for
tho wheat. A most remarkable instance
of the capability of the country for
stock-raising, ib the fact that along the
Pembina Railway, I saw Winnipeg
butchers buying up cattle for immediate
slaughter. These had beon fed and fattened mostly on tho brown prairie grass.
Notwithstanding the dry season last
year, many who took advantage of the
excursions to visit Manitoba, were so
impressed with what they saw, that up
to last Saturday 370 cars of these settlers'
effects had already arrived this Spring.
Winnipeg is feeling ihe effects of the
large influx of Bottlers. They told me
that thore was scarcely a house to lot in
the whole city, and now arrivals are
putting up at tlie hotels.
The report of the Select Standing Committee on agriculture and colonization
lias been given to the House. It states
that the immigration of settlors into
Canada during the calender yoar 1889
was nuincrcially less than thnt of some
previous years. The number of Bottlers from Europe was 52,083, and from
the United States, per reports at-the
Custom houses with settlers' effects, 38,
617, giving a total of immigrant settlers
for tho year of 01,600. The total expenditure upon immigration for tho year
waB $126,043, including maintenance of
agencies aud all other charges, equal to
$1.37 nor immigrant, Tho evidence
heard before the committee this year
and submitted as a part of the report is
of moro than average valuo in the information it contains upon the agricultural resources of Canada. In adopting
the report several members of tho committee commented in flattering terms
upon Professor Saunders' management
of the experimental farms and the valuo
of liia evidence appended to the report.
Before adjourning a vote of thanks was
enthusiastically tendered to Mr. White
for the ability with which he discharged
the responsible duties of chairman to
the committee.
TUB BKNATK.
Ottawa. May 5th, '00.—On Monday
the "North-West Territories Bill" was
considered In committee. Hon. Mr.
Belterose said: I need not repeat bore
what I said somo few days ago, that this
country was French from its vory beginning. What difference can it bo to our
community whether French is an official
language, whether it is taught and
spoken here? French is used Fn evory
part of the universe. Its importance
to-dav is a consequence of its universality. *Aro they loyal, thoso who. so stii
up feelings of animosity between tho

country? Loyal, to my mind, moans
faithful, true; faithful to Iho queen, true
to tlie queen. Aro thoy true, ore they
faithful to the queon who, disregarding
her solemn promises, her solemn on-
f;agemeuts, agitate animosity between
ler most faithful subjects? Should our
ancestors riso from thoir graves, and
look and hear what Ib going on in our
times, they certainly could not believe
what tholr eyos saw and their curs
hoard.
Hou. Mr.Gii'ilrdsaid: You huve heard
an eloquent voice from tho last speaker.
I regret that thiB question has come beforo^Parliament. Tho French population of Canada have good reason to demand tho right to use tholr language
from one end of this country to the
other. They nro tho descendants of
those who opened up this Dominion to
civilization, In tho interest of the British Empire we should encourage the
use of tho French language.
Hon. Mr.'Abbott said: I propose to
ask the Houso to call these territories
"The Western Territories of Canada,"
in lieu of the Northwest Territories of
Canada.
Hon. Mr. Bellerose'n motion was as
follows: That when the order of the
day is called for putting the House into
committee of the whole on Bill V, intituled: "An act to amend the act respecting the Northwest Territories," ho
will move in amendment to the motion
to go into committee of thu whole, that
all the words after "That" in tho said
motion be struck out, and the following
inserted in amendment thereto: "It is
not iu the interest of this country to
agitato tho question of changing such
provisions of the constitutional laws of
the Northwest Territories as now proposed to be amended, and which gives
to the people of those Territories the
free use of both the English nnd the
French language iu the proceedings of
the Legislative Assembly, aud in the
recording and publishing the same,"

ANOTHER REPUDIATION.
Editor Columbian—Str:—The report
that Mr. Hendry proposed to Premier
Kobsou so elect him by acclamation to
represent Westminster City is scarcely
credible. If Mr. Hendry had done so
after a public expression of confidence
in tho Premier's conduct with regard to
the Redistribution Bill, he might have
been excusable, but Mr. Hendry must
know that with the exception, perhaps,
of a few toadies and schemers, there
could not bo found a man who would
justify the Premier's position on that
net. Mr. Hendry wns guilty of a similar
piece of assurance when he telegraphed
the late nnd lamented Mr. Homer to resign his seat at Ottawa on a certain occasion. Such unwarrantable egotism
betrays the most despfceable features of
human depravity. Citizen.

fell here on Saturday aud Sunday, much
to the delight of the farmers.
Mr. A. Anderson, of the Lillooet River,
disponed of a largo number of fruit trees
during the past spring to the settlers.
Wo expect to bo a fruit-producing, as
well as a consuming, people in the sweet

Mr. F. W.,Dobie, of St. Thomas, Out.,
baa completed the survey of his timber

over ten thousand acres, which he recently purchased from Mr. John White,
ex-M. P. for Hastings, Out.
Two mining experts from Vancouver
have been prospecting and testing the
coal ou Kanaka Creek, and It is expected that a drill will soon be at work to
try aud find out the value of the hidden

The water in the ' Lillooet has risen

NORTH ARM NOTES.
(From Our Own Oorresjioudciit.)
North Arm, May 13.—According to
previous announcement Rev. S. J.
Thompson preached on Sunday morning on the subject of amusements. Ho
took for his text Cor., 10-31—"Whatsoever ye do, do all to tho glory of God."
He explained that whatever promotes
good temper, purity of thought and action, intelligence or bodily strength may
bo engaged m to the glory of God. He
then referred to many of tho popular
amusements of the present day, such as
dancing, horse racing, card playing,
novel reading, etc., and tried each by
these tests. It was a very able and interesting discourse. We are only sorry
tbat in consequence of the heavy rain
the congregation was small, but hope
that the reverend gentleman mav repeat It at some future time for the benefit of those who wero not present, and
wo are sure that those who were would
gladly liBteu again to tho same wholesome teaching.
The lecture nt Stevotori by Mr. Ped-
ley was well attended nnd highly appreciated.
Mrs. McClury and daughters, Dora
aud Greta, who have boen spending the
winter in Western Ontario, returned
lust Thursday. We are glad to welcome
them home again aud to learn that Mrs.
McClury's health is considerably improved.'

FRIDAY KVESINO, MAY 10, 1800.
HAS "TRUTH" FLOPPED?
On it local morning cotemporary occupies a most painful and embarrassing
position in tbe redistribution discussion.
Shortly after the bill was brought down
it showed an inclination to treat the
subject as an independent and self-respecting Mainland journal should. It
then spoke its convictions, and its utterances were in the direction of voicing
the sentiments of its constituency and
all unprejudiced and fair-minded people
throughout tbe Province. A complete
and surprising change, however, hns of
Into pcrvuded evory utterance of our co-
temporary on the subject, and it- has
utterly repudiated its former stand on
the question, ns will bo soon by a perusal
of the " deadly parallels" on another
page.
But Truth denies this morning thnt it
has flopped, and protends to feel hurt
because we havo insinuated that it did
so for " temporary gain." If nny one
hod any doubts that our cotemporary
has taken a complete somersault in its
utterances on the redistribution question, these will bo utterly dispelled by
an ordinarily careful perusal of the parallel columns elsewhere. Arid the
proposition then suggests itself: As it
has beon established beyond the shadow
of a doubt that Truth has flopped, surely
it has not bo eggregiously stultified itself
for nothing. "Temporary gain" may,
perhaps, not cover the consideration,
but we thought we would let our cotem.
off easy.
Truth's windy boast about being able
to buy out this journal "half a dozen
times over," etc., does not comport vory
well with its own hide-bound appearance; but, of course, it may have made
" a big haul" lately. We would like
to inform our cotemporary, however,
that thiB journul is not for salo to the
highest bidder, nnd that it hasn't got
money enough to buy out The Columbian)
" and deposit the whole thing at the
" bottom of the sea"—much as it would
undoubtedly like to accomplish such an
end. No Mr. Truth, keep your "boodle"
to improve your "homestead" and buy
yourself n new "dress."
THE "TIMES" ON THE SITUATION.
Thk position of our Victoria cotemporary, the Times, on this redistribution
question as an issue in the approaching
elections, iB enigmatical enough to be
interesting. When the measure wub
first announced, the Times criticised it
in a desultry, feeble, carping, and rather
insincere sort of tone, as if it was not
quite sure of its ground, but wanted
awfully to say something misty, ns a
good, loyal Opposition organ it felt itself
in duty bound to do. Our cotemporary,
however, rather "hedged" in its first
expressions on tho subject, and when
all was said very little wus said, The
Colonist, straight Government touter
nnd ardent 'supporter of the redistribution abortion, did not fail to mnko a
note of the Times' uncomfortable situation astride the pickets, and in tones at
once brotherly and compassionate adjured it to "kerflop" down in an unmistakable manner on one side or the other,
which kindly advice tho Times treated
with silent contempt nnd kept its perch
without changing a feather or even
winking a "wunk." At intervals, however, tho "rooster" would crow with
mild approval over the well-grounded
adverse criticisms of tho Mainland press.
But a change has come over the spirit
of tho Times lately in its treatment of
this question, To do our contemporary
justice, it is not a change in the sense
of a conversion, but more iu tho nature
of a definite decision in the direction to
which it evidently loaned. To bo brief,
the Times has got down off the fence,
and ns it has got down on the right sido,
we congratulate it so far, and will proceed to examine some of its lato utterances. When we make allowance for
the ruling motive inspiring the Times-
opposition to tho Government on general principles—thoro nre still some very
forcible  nnd   portinont  tiling.,  aaid by
our cotempornry thnt are worth reproducing on their abstract merits. We'
havo not got space toquote at length, but
ahnlt make extracts here aud there, in
the first placo, from nn article on the
"Constitution Act," or Redistribution
Bill, in tho Times of Tuesday:
Tho act Itself was simply a bungle mul disgrace; the representation was not based upon
nny principle; neither population, (Ixeil inter-
than 100 on Hie roll,   Was over a inoru'inischiev
oiunncnRure Introduced or one more, designed
to stir un strife and diceordV And yet the Government organ expected intelligent human bo-
Iiirh to support lt.  * * * Tho mischievous
cttort of the Government to stir up Rcctlonal
feeling between the Island and the Mainland
upon this measure should be frowned down by
every true friend of Vlctorln and tbe Province.
Nothing would be moro Injurious to our fair
elty's Interest than to create sueh an issue.
Vlctoriu prospers, and is depressed when other
portions of tho Proviuco do not prosper.
Nothing could be fairer or finer than
the sentiments expressed in tho last few
sentences, although it is unfair to say
that the Government, at least as a whole,
made an "effort to stir up sectional feel-
" ing." A decidedly sectional measure
was introduced nnd passed, but its
mainspring lay behind tho Government ns a government, although partly
within that body. To givo a pointed
illustration to our meaning: The Opposition, had It been in power, under the
same circumstances, would havo succumbed to the same pressure from within and from without. Therefore, the
necessity of making the question of n
fair and just redistribution for the Province n distinct and main issue nt the
polls, thus rousing the country to the
present rotten and outrageous state of
things, and Insuring a healthier and
fairer sentiment in tho now Parliament
and Executive, which will ronderitpossible for either party to legislate on lines
of equity and justice on this question.
To such a desirable end, sacrifices will
havo to bo made, and no true patriot,
having in view the present, and much
more, the future welfare of the Province,
we opine, will refuse to make his offering.
In au article in its issue of Wednesday, entitled "The Columbian and Sectionalism," the Times completely demolishes the fence, so to speak, on
which it had been roosting, and declares
itself, for the people of Victoria, in the
following clear nnd unmistakable, if not
remarkable manner:
Wo would impress on the mind of tho Colum-
man that this "octopus of sectionalism" Is a
feature which belongs exclusively to the cabal
which it has supported for some years past
through thick and thin. Sectionalism does not
exist among tbo electorate with that Intense,
ness which the Columbian would have us be
Hove. Usually, when important political questions are up for consideration the public Is
heard from; somebodv finds expression of opinion through the press. Thus far, it will be
noted, that tho Constitution Act hns had no de-
fenders and but few apologists. Tbe COLUMBIAN
docs au Injustice to the common sense and the
ninf-iniulmlty of tbe Island electorate in terming it sectional in its political predilections. In
truth the sectionalism of the Island, if bo it may
be called, takes its rise chioflv from tho supposed sectionalism of tho Mainland, Thu attitude of the respective localities seems to be that
of persons tacitly suspicious of each other witli'
out being ublo to assign a specific reason for it.
Thero Is not an intelligent elector on the Island
who does not feel thnt tho Interests of the Is
land und the Mainland are inseperable. They
cannot be held responsible for the actions of
men who in considering public Interests con
sider private interests twice over, nnd who nre
sustained by adventitious conditions upon
which wc need not here expatiate.
Leaving out of the question the Times'
natural motive aud interest in placing
the whole blnmo of the redistribution
measure on the Government's shoulders,
and overlooking its littlo untrue thrust
at this paper to begin with, the expression of thnt paper quoted above docs
honor both to itself and tho peoplo of
Victoria and the Island. We sincerely
hope thnt the Times is justified in speaking ns it does of the sentiment of the
Island electorate. But a few pertinent
questions suggest themselves horo:. Why
did not the Times find its tongue before?
And (more important), will the Victoria
and the Island electorates take tho first
opportunity to practically repudiate the
Time.1 flattering estimate of them? We
shall see; the elections will tell. Whatever shall be the answer to this question,
much good has already boen done by the
public ventilation and agitation of tho
redistribution question, when a portion
of the Island press—a presumed moulder
as well ns exponent of public opinion-
can bo brought, even after some hesitation and trepidation, and with mixed
motives, to avow, on behalf of the electorate, sentiments which do honor to
both.
Let tho good work go on. The people
of Victoria and of the Island, as well ns
of every section of the Province, owe it
to themselves to disavow, if possible, all
connection or responsibility In the redistribution enormity of last session,
and in the principle which would perpetuate the abuses of that measure. Wo
trust, as the result of the healthy breeze
which will be kept playing on tho subject, to sec a general disgorging and repudiating all round, so that by the time
the new Parliament is convoked a salutary
sense of shame may impel both Government nnd Legislature to take tho very
earliest opportunity to wipo out tho disgrace of last session by placing upon the
statute books of the Province a Redistribution Bill that will "redistribute"
and a Reform Act that will "reform,
Wo will conclude nt this time by
producing the concluding sentences of
the Times' article from which wo have
quoted last. Though MephiBtopheles
himself had penned the words when in
an "angel of light" mood, we would be
forced to "givo tho devil his dues," and
say, ns wo do, that they cannot well bo
improved on, ns fitting tho occasion and
tbe circumstances. Says our cotemporary, then, and, we heartily endorse it:
1 What the Mainland should do in the
' mutter of the coming elections is to
' send men to the House of approved in-
' telligence, of disinterestness and of that
' independence of spirit which will pre-
' elude their stultifying themselves in
"support of their leaders. With a
" House composed of such men we may
" anticipate wise legislation, a policy in
" which private interests will lie mnde
" secondary to thoso of the public."

her mind on her conscience, so to speak,
and while she has left none of the super-
Bensitivoness toward conduct which
plagued her ancestors, sho does agonize
over tho proper cultivation of her mind,
hor ethical sense exhausting itself In
this direction.
It would ho interesting to know just
whero the Boston woman draws tho lino
botween amusement and cultivation, if,
indeed, sho draws it anywhero. Sho
mixes lectures and rcooptions, study
classes und lunchoon parties, so thoroughly and with Bitch an air of looking
at thom from tho same pointof viowthat
ono can not toll whether it is that sho
takes ovory thing so seriously, or looks
upon all so frivolously. Tho impression
whioh tho lookor-on inovitably gets is
that whatever her attitude toward one
is her attitude toward all; but masculine
perspicacity in seldom able to discover
just what this is.
At tho prosent ntomont tho Hind—it
Bhould always bo spoiled with a largo M,
and my unfitness to treat of tho subject
is, it is to ho feared, shown hy tho low-
ov-oase letters abovo!—is (riven in about
equal proportions to the Greek play, to
luncheons and afternoon teas, which aro
aa thick as loaves in Vallombrosa, and
to philosophy. Tho luncheons aro
dreadful festivities, chiofly confined to
the fair box, which last for about three
hours, havo us many courses as a dinner,
and completely spoil not only tho day
but tho evening. Of tho Greek play
thore is moro to ho said when tho timo
comos, and tho philosophy is in tho
shapo of lectures. In tho first placo,
Prof. Royoo, of Harvard, has boon lecturing in drawing-rooms about Spinoza
and other distinguished and distinctly
incomprehensible philosophers. He lias
undoubtedly taught much, and ono of
the results hall beon tho quiokenlngof
au intenso desiro to master—or. as I am
speaking of woinon, should 1 say mistress?—all knowledge.
"I was so fired by the lecture ono
day," a Hoston woman said, "that I wont
straight to the library for a volume of
Kleiner. I was determined to know all
thoro was in his philosophy to know,
but I thought I would begin with a small
volume first. I asked tho librarian for
tho smallest volume on Fichtor she had,
and she gave mo a little book that
looked as though a baby might mastor
it. it was at) smalt and pretty. But tho
violousncsii of that volume I ean not begin to express to you. I sat down with
ft one night, and 1 could not comprehend
tlio first word. It was worse than a nonsense rhyme, and it wasn't half so amusing. But I said, to myself: lI havo
taken it in tlio evening whon my brain
isn't, clear.' But tho next morning when
I tried it it was more incomprehensible
than ever. I said lo myself that ignorance was on the whole preferable to
idiocy, even in Boston: and so I mildly
but, firmly carried the small book back to
the library} and now I listen to tho lectures as if they wero not really meant to
be understood, but only to be enjoyed
as music They are charming on that
basis."
IVof. Louis i)yor is also giving lectures
to the fashionable Boston womon, and
the conversation at the lengthy luncheons aforesaid turns upon lofty subjects
at which the masculine head reels merely to hoar mentioned. Tho women do
play thoir part most admirably. Thoy
arena grave about il. as children over
the make-believes of their childish
sports. They might really bo in earnest for all one could tell from thoir
manner.
"1 am afraid I would never do for Boston," a clevor Western girl said tbe
othor day. "I have frivolous moments
even while tho discussion of the uni-
verso and tho ultimate endof man is going on. I even let my frivolous attention hecoino absorbed in the exquisite
flavor of an ontroo or a salad while I am
bearing tho doopest truths of philosophy
discussed at an intellectual lunchoon."
"You forget," she was answered,
"that philosophy has no truths; it has
only theories, But, laying that question aside, it is to bo inferred from what
you say that you must really be a Bos-
tonian changed in your cradlo. Your
altitude is precisely that of tho Boston
woman, oxcopt that she consciously and
deliberately lots hor mind wander.
Once it discussion is started in which
she does not have to bear a part, sho deliberately turns her mind out to grass
and lets it run its unregenerated course.
Hor only caro Is to proservo an outward
semblance of attention; and for assuming a comprehension and an onjoymont
in topics in .which ono has not tho
.slightest interest or understanding, the
Boston woman is probably without rival
in tho world."
"How perfectly nasty," tho Wostorn
girl protested. "Now, I think tho Boston women, mind and all, aro delightful."
"Delightful!" hor Interlocutor echoed.
"Thoy aro without equal in tho world.
Thoy are enchanting. Most womon can
humbug men, but tho Boston woman
can go to tho length not only of hum-
hugging women, but of accomplishing
that doubtful feat upon her own self.
Sho Is not only delightful, but she Is
superb."
A SENSIBLE GIRL.
Sorry to Accept Flavors from Her Lover
Because They Cost Bo Much.
"Ohl I wish ho wouldn't!" said a dear
girl to a Now York Evening Sun reporter, as sho opened tho box and for
one long moment of puro delight drank
in the exquisito beauty and perfume of
tho great cluster of velvety "jacks."
"They're lovely, and so is ho, but X do
wish he wouldn't!" sho repeated as sho
lifted out tho great bunoh and thrust
them with tho most elaborate and
artistic carelessness into a great out'
glass rose bowl.
"Why shouldn't he if he wants to?"
asked her listener.
Sho flushed a little, but answered
bravely: "Because ho can't afford it
You seo," sho wont on heavily, "I know
the dear follow oares for me—know it
■ just as woll as if he had told me so.and I—
f well, I wouldn't foel distressed over this
Lit— You seo, young mon are so foolish
[about theso things. A flower seems to
Tihom the vory apothoosis of a gift to a
fflrl, and so it would bo ifwolivod In
lArcady and roses woro to he had for tho
Ipluoking, But we don't; wo live in Now
|York, where every bud costs a big,
■ round dollar, and tho pootry of flower-
Jgiving resolves itself into the decided
jproso of earning tho dollar to pay for
phera. I don't know Tom's salary, of
| course, but I know it isn't 910,000 a
I yoar, and here's 825 worth of jaokB, I
L am sure. If young men only knew lt,
! sometimes a girl, if sho has any senso
at all and any proper appreciation of
how money Is earned in this world, is
really moro distressed than gratified
whon he thinks he Is making her happiest. Wouldn't she he a selfish girl if
sho oould be perfectly happy or ovon
coolly complaoont ovor a gift that will
last hor a few hours, but that sho knows
will cost the poor follow who sent lt
half his week's salary to pay for."
KNOWLEDGE   IS POWER.
Nowadays Education Stands at the Head
of All Required Gifts.
In olden times education was not valued as it is now. It was realized that
an educated man was in some senso superior to ignorant people, but he was regarded as effeminate for wasting his
time in poring over musty parchments
and missals, and otherwise looked upon
pretty much as people nowadays regard a man trying to discover perpetual
motion.
Nowadays, says Golden Days, education has been exalted to itsproper place,
at tho head of all acquired gifts.
An uneducated adult is an object of
pity, and frequently of contempt, and
tho very first step a boy makes toward
future greatness is to acquire an education.
He must be a stupid boy, indeed, who
does not value an education and realize
that he can not becomo great without it.
It is truo that thoro aro rich mon who
aro illiterate, but these are accidents of
fortune. Thoy may havo had monoy
left tu thom, may havo discovered a
inino, or may have hoarded up money
liko a raiser. But thoso aro exceptions
—tbo rule is that education is tho only
ladder to fame.
Hut thon arises tho question—what
constitutes an education? Tho Wabash
railway lias issued a positive order that
no boy shall be employed In any of its
shops or other departments, for tho
purpose of learning any trade or skilled
work, unless ho brings a certificate
from his instructors stating that ho has
completed his studies up to tho second
class of tho grammar school. This would
include a knowledge of arithmetic up
to mensuration, reading, writing,
spoiling, elementary geography and
grammar, somo history, etymology and
natural history, nnd may bo taken as
a fair standard of a common-school education.
If a boy has tho means and oan afford
the time, ho should not stop bore. He
should go through tho high school and
lollcge, and take special courses in engineering—civil, mining or electrical—
chemistry, physics, or any ono or moro
of tho numerous useful branches now
open to bright, energetic boys, But if
ho must stop at a common-school education, or oven if ho goes through college,
ho must not stop learning if ho wishes
to become great.
Text-books do not contain all tho information with which boys should acquaint thomsolvos. Thoy are but tho
foundation stones of knowledge. A boy
should study curront ovonts, thd history
of tho world whioh is always happening.
Hero is whoro books, magazines and
newspapers havo their greatest valuo.
He must road books of travel if he
would know about tho geography of tho
world; as, for instanco, Stanley's description of Africa in tho light of recent discovery.
Almost every day tho bright boy may
read of some now disoovory in scionce,
history, botany or chemistry, and add to
his education by just that muoh. Tho
knowledge thus acquired is always a
source of pleasure- and frequently of
profit. And it is a peculiarity of learning that tho moro you study tho easier
i t is to study.
Tho man who has learned two languages can moro easily loarn a third;
ono study acts as n prop to another, and
so it is in every branch. Tlio civil engineer could easily master electrical engineering, and tho boy who reads history understandingly imbibes geography
>vith scarcely an effort.
In the case abovo quoted tho railway
company has found that boys who havo
completed tho English branohos of
study learn skilled work moro easily
nan those who havo not.
Tho reason Is quito apparent. Skilled
work requires tbo exorcise of tho reason*
ng powers; tho worker must under-
itand the why and wherefore of his
work; he is not a moro machine set going. A boy with an oducation will
think whllo he works; ho wlll study
and contrive tho very host way of doing
ny tiling; his brain has been drilled to
reason and it does roason.
Such a boy is twico as valuable to his
employer as an unthinking, ignorant
boy, howovor obedient and willing ho
may bo, and tho employer is bound to
apprcciato his services at tboir proper
worth. Such a boy is bound to riso out
of tho ovory-day rut; ho will master his
trado in half the time an ignorant lad
would consume
Theso aro prizes worth striving for,
and they aro within tho roach of any
boy of ordinary ability who will study
with diligenoo after ho loaves school.
If he "doesn't bother with learning
any thing now," as somo boys aro fond
of boasting, tho chances are that he
will stand all his life at tho foot of tho
ladder; if he wishes to climb lie must
study, and before ho has grown out of
young manhood ho will be glad to admit
.hat "knowledge is power."
HE   DISPERSED  THE   BOYS.
An Aged Librarian Was Too  Much   for
tho Hilarious Students,
A partyt of studentB in tho big university down at Delaware, tho Ohio
Wosleyan, were out enthusiastically
serenading various mombors of the
faculty and other functionaries of the
college tho other evening, nnd in their
triumphant course, for their music
swept, every thing before it, they
stopped in irontof tho rosidonco of the
college librarian, Mr. Joseph Dickinson,
says the Toledo Blade.
Festooning themselves along tho high
board lence which Incloses tho librarian's estate, tlio dulcot strains of the thi
can and the long- tremulous notes of the
fish-horn floated out upon thoumbion:
atmosphere. Tho sweet tones of the
bass drum, the ravishing music of those
all-night voices and tho grand ensemble
of tbo whole choir woro not long jrt
bringing tho old librarian to his front
porch. His eyos swept In at a glance
the row of students draped over his
front fence and thon rolled slowly and
sontimentally up to tho doop sky, he-
spangled with its stars, sparkling in
January's frost. Tho old moon, tossing
on its oloud-floeoo bods, shed a soft,
sophomorie glamor over all tho scene
The soft sentiment of tho hour stole
Into tho old librarian's soul and ho
stood in silent rapturo as ono transfixed
by a ptnon of tho angelic hosts. And
tho rattle of tho tin pan and the hoarse
notes of tbe fish-horn, the walls of tho
score of sentimental youths still boat
upon tho soft air and shattered it into
atmospheric atoms. But thero camo a
lull. Tho music died away in a low, lingering wail. The air held again tho
solemn stillness. Then tho trembling volco of the deeply affeoted librarian aroso in tho stilly night air, and
said slowly:
"Gentlemen, I dislike to disturb you
and interrupt that classic concert, but I
just had that fenoe painted to-day."
Imitating the Teacher.
When a certain resldont of the West
Side went home to dinner ono day last
week, says the Buffalo Courier, ho found
hig youngest daughter, a littlo tot not
yet (our years old, parading up and
down before a row of othor little girls,
Under one arm was a rulor and in ono
hand Bhe carried an opon hook, whllo
her jaws were moving up and down with
the regularity of a steam hammer.
"What are you doing?" asked her father.
"Playing school."
"And what havo you in your mouth?"
"Gum."
"Where did you get It?"
"Took tt from my scholars-tho samo
as tho teacher does."

TO THE ELECTORS

GI.NTI.hMEN!—Aa 1 have already announced,
I hctr to oner myself ns a candidate for tho scut in
tho Commons mnde vacant by the death nf our
late member, and I come before you an a sup-
porlernf the Government of Sir John Macdonald, reserving to myB0li,ol course, the right to
net independently should the action of the Government lu nny .until!.1 urem projndleal lo onr
interests.
I would strongly urge Immediate attention th
the improvement of the River whero required,
for tho protection of the rich agricultural lnnds
uf the District, audit elected,! shall at once
proceed tn Ottawa nnd leavo uo stono unturned
Iu secure the Immediate appointment of a
competent engineer with it view to tho prompt
undertaking of tliis most Important work.
An you arc aware, the duty on certain kinds
of mining machinery has been remitted In this
Province us ii special concession to llrltlsh Co-
luinbla on account ol the special conditions obtaining here. I would strongly urge the further
application of this* principle of special tnrlfrarrangements, so as to relieve consumers of goods
which must lie Imported, while preserving the
protection of onr agricultural nud other Interests. '
The land laws of the Dominion, having been
[rained without close consideration of our requirements, are lu many points unsuitable, for
example In the conditions ns to clearing, I
would endeavor to secure immediate reform in
Hits Important matter.
Subsidies having beeu granted to railways In
the various Provinces of the Dominion, I should
urgently present the claims to similar assistance
of ritUwnyB within our own Province.
Should the City of New Westminster decide to
build a bridgo across the Eraser, 1 should use
my best ottdoavtiw to obtain a Kuusimitiai subsidy for the work, urging that an undertaking
of this character should rank with canals and
railways as one entitled to national nld.
The next census wlll undoubtedly show sueh
an increase in the wealth and imputation of this
District as will constitute nn undeniable claim
to increased representation fn tho Commons.
That clnim, if elcetod, 1 shall support to tho utmost of my ability,
Although, with tho growth of tho District,
the mall service has been Improved and extended, it Htin lngs far behind our requirements.
I should give special attention to this partof
your representative's work, feeling thai It is
one which is of vital-importance,
I should urgo tho enactment of sueh fishery
regulations, especially in tlie issuing of licences,
ns would, without r.uy injustice to the canner-
fos, tho importance ol which to the prosperity of
tho District all must recognise, fully protect
tho free fishermen, and encourage tlie settlement iiinougst us of the greatest possible number of that Industrious and hardy class of men.
All enactments and regulations for tbo protection of white labor would receive my nearly
support.
Continued work towards tbe Improvement of
the harbors ol Now Westminster nnd Vancouver, nnd tho efficient lighting and buoying ol
the same, is n matter which would have my
closest ut tention at all times.
In a word, I should constantly urge upon tho
Government tho wisdom of a lilx'ral policy In
mtbllc works lu this District, tho vast resources
ol which mnke It certain thai sueh a policy
would be amply Justified by results.
Trusting to have tho opportunity of seeing
overy elector before polling day,

for about au hour by several young lei-
lows to the groat amusement of the

there was nothing exactly wrong about
the affair, but such things on the pub

word, Mr. Brown conies forward in response to a largo and representative requisition—measuring four foot and a
half in length, and containing such a
representation of tho free and unpurchaseable electors as to place his election beyond tbo shadow of a doubt.

His Lordship Bishop Sillitoe hits writ

Highnesses, tho JDuke and Duchess of
Connaught to Westminster has boen unsuccessful. Bishop Sillitoe sent an invitation to the Duke of Connaught,
through his chief of staff, General Sir
Sir JohnO. McNeill.. In reply the latter gentleman .said the visit would be
impossible, as tho royal party would
only spend ono day on the coast, at
Victoria, and oven that visit might have
to bo cancelled. The party woro to
leave Tokio on the 8th inst., and Quebec on June 12th. This necessarily
makes the-tilp a very rapid one, and
precludes the possibility of a visit to
the Royal City.

A Golden Anniversary.
.Sergt. Major McMurphy was the recipient of many congratulations' to-day.
The occasion was the 60th anniversary
of his enlistment in the Royal Sappers
and Miners, in which corps he was
regularly enrolled at Glasgow on May
10th, 1840. After a short course of instruction at headquarters Sergt. Major
McMuflphy went to the Cape and fought
through the long war. When the
Crimean war broke out ho was ordered
to the scene of hostilities, and moro
than once distinguished himself in the
face of the enemy. The old veteran of
half a hundred fights is still hale and
hearty, and his name is still on the roll
of an activo militia corps, the New
Westminster Rifles, of which he is honorary sergeant major. May the old war
horse see many more anniversaries of
this day.

MiiHthe Stopped.
Without wishing to put a damper on
the present craze for lacrosse among the
rising generation, it it onlyproper to remind the boys that profanity is not at
all necessary to the game. The seniors,
nnd others who have played the game
for years, do not find swearing any assistance, and, in fact, it is a rigid rule
that no bad language should be heard
on the field. Unfortunately a number
of mere lads (boys who should know
better, and whoso parents would be
dreadfully shocked if they imagined
such language was used by them) are
given to the wicked and unmanly habit
of using oaths, which coming from such
young fins causes the hearer to shudder.
This is thrown out as a warning, which
it is hoped will have the intended effect,
but should it fail, other means will be
taken to put a stop to the evil habit.
The   Stump Begins.
Politics are lively in the up-river districts at present, more lively and cheerful, perhaps, than they have been since
tbo last general elections. Mr. Marshall
Sinclair, who nspireB to fill one of the
latest stylo cabinet chairs in the next
Local Parliament, has been delighting
and captivating the people of both sexes,
especially the fairer ana weaker gender,
with his smooth and voluble tongue
and handsome faco and figure. It is
currently reported that both hearts and
votes have beeu captured by wholesale.
Mr. W. B, Townsend has'also been at
work adding a few more spokes to tho
Ottawa wheel. He is very well and favorably known up the river, and is said
to be meeting with satisfactory support.
The people, however, are loath to pledgo
themselves to any candidate, until it is
definitely known just who are going to
take the field. In this they are justified,
for a hasty pledge is not sensible under
any circumstances.

The Joke Failed.
A practical joker played a trick on Mr.
W. H. Vianen yesterday morning, but
tho trick was a poor one and the joke
fell as flat as a flounder. Mr. Vianen's
little steamer was lying snugly iu its
berth, with no one aboard at tho moment, the engineer having gone to
breakfast. The joker, seeing his way
clear, quietly got aboard and, drawing a
small united States flag from his pocket,
quickly made it fast to tho lanyard ami
drew it to the masthead, where a moment later it filled out before the freshening breeze. Then the joker withdrew
a short distance and watched the progress of his amusing trick. It was not
many moments before Mr. Vianen made
his appearance on the slip, and as his
eye casualty passed over tho neat little
craft it caught sight of the foreign ensign
flying at the masthead. The result was
not long in coming. "Who put that
flag up there?" he cried to one of his
assistants, " take it down immediately,
aud throw it in the river—break it in
two, do you hear." And a moment later
the practical joker had the mortification
of seeing hiB brave bit of bunting torn
from its fastening nnd cast into the
water, a torn and shattered wreck.

Wild Native Music.
Those who chose for thoir promenade
the road along the railway track between the woolen mills and the penitentiary Inst night had tho benefit of a
feerenade by the Indian band. The
musicians were in a tent, safely hidden
from view, and they wero executing a
psalm tune. The agonies of the wretched psalm tune must have been excruciating ; its shrieks for mercy and its
groans of woe were absolutely bloodcurdling.' The perpetrntors of the execution seemed to have got the tune down
on its back on the floor of the tent, and
some of the heaviest of them sitting on
its chest; and its moans and screams
for help rang ont most piteously over
the dark and troubled waters of the
Fraser, and set every dog in the neighborhood that had the slightest taste for
music, howling dismally. Even the
noctural cats up in some back yard on
Columbia street shut off their '"orrid
owls" aud listened to the more demoniacal racket on tbe slope, with bated
breath aud bulging eyes. After the
assassination of tlie psalm tune there
was an awful pause, a deep and melancholy silence, broken only by the ceaseless dash of the rivor among the rocks,
and, of course,, the inevitable "sighing
of the night wind among the trees
without which "a horrible tale" is never
complete. No more blood was shod aud
the petrified listeners thawed out their
blood and shudderingly shuffled off,

Brains vs. Cash.
Of all tho extraordinary arguments
over employed by one debater to defute
the assertion of another, thnt made use
of by our esteemed cotemporary this
morning in its editorial columns as to
its ability to buy up thia paper and put
the whole concern at tho bottom of tho
sea, must surely rank as the most extraordinary. By the way, it forcibly reminds one of the amusing anecdote, related, if memory serves us right, by
George AugUBtus Sala. Sala, among
other peculiarities is fond of doing queer
things and once he took "ProfeBsor"Hol-
loway, of pill and ointment fame, to a
very select meeting of the London
Literary Club. The "Professor" evinced
a burning desire to be introduced to Mr
W. M. Thackory, who wns present, and
Sala led Holloway up to the great man.
"Mr, Thackeray," said|he, "permit me
to introduce "Professor Holloway." The
great William Makepeace turned round,
eyed tho mighty pill-maker from lacquered shoos to shining crown, and said
in freezing tones, " Sir. I trust that you
may enjoy longer life than the majority
of your patients,"nnd then he stalked
majestically away. "Why, God bless
my soul," sputtered the crushed and
indignant "professor," "Why, sir, I can
buy that follow up twenty times and
sell him over again 1" Mr. Sala, although rather nettled at the great novelist's cut, burst into a roar of uncontrollable laughter at the ridiculous view of the situation taken
by tho "Professor." But JViK/tought to
know that it has always been the same
way—brains are not on the market at
any price—but a sheet with such talents
for foraging, cabbaging and mendacity
has not much need of brains, although
it is a pity their vast wealth could not be
used to procure them a little.
It Says Not, but Read the Deadly Parallels Below,
and Judge Ye,
HAS  "TRUTH"   FLOPPED?
(From Truth of April 20.)
The Hon. John Robson does not hesitate to say that the Redistribution Bill
iB unjust to the Mainland. He deliberately asserts that it is constructed on
the basis that the "balance of power"
between the Island and the Mainland
must be maintained; that if the increase
of population on the Mainland requires
an increase of representatives, an equol
number of representatives niuBt be given
to tho Island whether thoro be any increase of population thore or not. That
is the justification he offers for the injustice which he admits the bill perpetrates. Tho "balance of power" must
be maintained. He gives the people to
finderstand that he is opposed to the
bill himself, but that he has been overridden hi tho cabinet by his colleagues.
He more than leaves it to bo inferred,
lie plainly intimates, that ho would
rather father tho responsibility of an
unjust measure than go out of office.
He snys that after a census has been
taken (that is, noxt year) if he is
in power he will see that a fresh redistribution measure is brought in on a
basis of representation by population.
But if he is not opposed to injustice this
year, what reason is there to expect
that his political morals will be improved in a twelvemonth? It is to be
presumed (with the present bill enacted)
that ho will have tho same cabinet to
deal with next year thnt ho has this
year. What reason is thero to suppose
thnt that cabinet will then bo more inclined to do justice to the Mainland
than now? None whatever. Their
principle of adhering to tho "balance
power" theory will be as strong then as
now. This position must be as clear to
tbe Premier as it is to anybody else. If
he carries out his promise then, ho will
be met by the same opposition from his
colleagues as now nnd will be forced to
resign, a thing that he says he would
have to do now if he insisted on doing
what he considers justice.
We assert our belief that if the present bill is passed it will not bo touched
next year. There will be no redistribution in <891. Tho probability is that in
1894 no change will be made. Why?
Because a Government that holds office
by reason of an unjust net, through
which also the majority of the members
of the House are advantaged, is not
likely to destroy tho act that maintains
its existence. -Governments that are
begotten in corruption, all history has
shown, strive to make themselves strong
by tho perpetuation of corruption.
Therefore, we say, that if the Hon. John
Robson is not now prepared to sacrifice
his personal honors and emoluments,
there is to be no dependence placed in the
hope that he will a year hence. There
is uo use of disguising the fact that the
people of this district made a great deal
of store of Mr. Robson's fidelity to his
constituents. His reputation for
strength of purpose and devotion to the
rights and interests of his friends gave
hope n wide range. The result, it is
regretful to say, haB been most disappointing.
No one Mho knows the man can read
the speech he has made without feeling
a sense of commiseration. It is so painfully weak, so self-stultifying, so far removed from that stalwart independence
of action which would have been expected to characterize the man in sueh a
crisis, that his friends seem almost to
decline to be denunciatory! They are
ashamed. Wo would urge him even yet
to reconsider his course and, if possible,
to abjure the unworthy position which
he has assumed.
(From Truth of 22nd April.)
But indeed the Government docs nut
pretend lo be doing justice in this mat-
tor (of redistribution). Thoy may succeed now, because of the unjust force at
their back, but retribution will not vory
long bo delayed. Aud who can tell, after
all theso overt acts of political male-
violence, to what lengths the reaction
that is sure to come will inflame the
people to proceed to!
["Becalm, my countrymen, becalm!"]
(From Truth of May Glh.)
The Victoria Times says that the Government has asked the collectors of votes
to forward their lists by Juno 1st, and
concludes from that that the general
elections will come ott' on or nbout July
1st, or possibly a little earlier. The
same paper also intimates that the Premier will likely stand for Comox, or at
least that it looks as if lie were "going
to forsake his former friends in New
Westminster." But the straws of intelligence on which the Times bases these
conjectures really do not indicate very
much, Why should there be such
haste in bringing off the elections? It
must be apparent that the Government
has something to gain and nothing to
lose by delay. Tho flutter of redistribution excitement on the Lower Fraser is
not likely to wax with the passing
moons. And why should the honorable
Premier go back on his old constituents?
Wo judge it quite unlikely that he will
do anything of the kind. Why, Mr.
Times, if you intend that your readers
Bhall reverse the terms of your paragraph aud take the meaning from it that
his constituents have gone back on tho
honorable Premier, then you do not allow much for the prudence nnd discrimination of the people of this district. Our
citizens can argue and contend and declaim for what tbey regard to be their
rights, but their feelings do not run
away with their judgment and discretion.
(From Truth of Mny Utli.)
The most prominent candidate for
election iu New Westminster District iB
Hon. John Robson, Premier of the Province The Opposition tried to laugh
him out of becoming a candidate In this
District, nnd the Mainland Association
tried to frighten him out of it. But the
Premier has kept his countenance, as
well as his courage, and he will "stay
with it." ■ Aud, really, don't you think
ho has a bettor chance than nny of em?
Pondor it.
(From Truth of Mny 11th.)
Over in Vancouver there will be a
scramble. Wo aro informed that Mayor
Oppenheimer will be one of the candidates. He will come out as a clearly pronounced supporter of the Government.
[the italics are ours.—En. Columbian.]
David carries about with him a shrewd
head and a quiet tongue. Those are excellent qualities in a politician. He did
not go into ecstasies over the redistribution bill when it was passed, neither
did he cry for b-lood. He was not
thirsty for gore, and goes on tho safe
rule that molasses ns a flycatcher is
much preferable to vinegar. Mr. Oppenheimer is a very respectable gentleman, unquestionably tne most public-
spirited citizen on Burrard Inlet, and if
I be hns his deserts ho will be elected.
(From avtttt of May Mth.)
| Now, do not let it be forgotten that
| while the Opposition has never formal-
■ ly committed insolf to a measure of redistribution which will remove the
grievance of this district, the Government has dono so most distinctly. They
have given the most explicit assurance,
one and all, that ns soon as the census
11s taken, if it shall appear thereby that
! this District has not representation according to its population, a new bill
will be brought in to reduce tbe disparity. They declare that they have no
sympathy with the "bnlaneo of power"
theory, and seek only to do what is right
and just to nil parts of the Province.
(From Truth of May lfilh.)
. And it appears to us that the people
are bound to accept this statement of
the Government [in effect, that a just
redistribution measure would be brought
in after the census) as being made iu
good faith. At all events, there is absolutely nothing to be gained by repudiating it.

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
New Westminster City.
GENTLEMEN:—In respousG to ft requisition,
numerously sinned, which hnB beon presented to
me, I liog to offer myself us representative of
Hi is City in the Provincial Legislature.
I frankly confess that, aside from the great
question ol the Jnst distribution of legislative
power, 1 would scarcely care to bo it candidate.
If you do mc the honor lo elect me I shall mnke
that question my first consideration at nil times,
and In order to do this lt is essential that I
keen quite free from any entangling alliances
witli cither Government or Opposition. Hut to
the people and the advocacy of the rights of the
peoplo, In this matter and In all others, I cun
inllv and freely pledge myself; and with those,
be tltcy on what side nf tho House they may,
who aro animated by a similar Hplrlt, I will work
cordially.
The present crisis demands special treatment.
Wc of tlio Lower Mainland are denied-our Just
share of legislative power, and so long as that is
tho case onr true policy, in my opinion—nay,
the pollcywlilch our own self-respect compels us
to adopt—Is to return no man to the Legislature
who will not make the righting of that wrong
his Ilrst business, It may safely be assumed
that those who shall be found willing to do
right In this matter, will he tlie 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, and perhaps it
wlll he suffieleiii now to say on this point .lint I
believe there Is room for a good deal of work before the administration of public affairs can
claim to bewliat It.should be—government by
tho people for tho people. I should earnestly endeavor to do my snare of thai work.
I believe I may safely assume thnt you need
no assurance ot my deep and abiding Interest In
everything that makes for the prosperity of Now
Westmlnstor City.
1 nm, Gentlemen,
Very truly yours,
J. C. BROWN.

NUMBER 89.
TO THE ELECTORS
 OF	
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of our late
representative (the much-respected D.
Chisholm) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before you
some of my views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.
I have been asked what I mean when
I announce myself as a Liberal-Conservative | I reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residence of over 30 years in this Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has had the eli'ect of
changing many of my views, and given
me liberal ideas, therefore I claim I am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that party lines are not defined in
, British Columbia as they arc in the older
provinces, I consider that our representatives aro not in duty bound to give a
through-thick-and-thin support to any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
oooi) measures which may be brought
before them, 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 any way detrimental to tho interests of thiB Province
they should take their stand liko true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we cannot produce ut home can
be obtained more readily nnd at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, and in many cases the articles arc
better adnpted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of ouv Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles are brought from the States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply onr Wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and aro met with such heavy duties
that heads of families in this Province
pay move than ten to one compared to
their compeers iu Eastern Provinces.
We have had example to the point during the last three mouths. If we had
not received a good supply from California there would have been a meat
famine; as it is wc are now and have
been paying 25 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 in spite of
"Protection" for tho last eleven years
our stock raisers are little better prepared to meet hard winters than they
were before, and to my mind the only
ones who havo reaped the benefit of the
N. P. are tho manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question,I would advocate"lleciprocitv"
in many articles which are at present in the Tariff lists, as I 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 he needs to eat and
wear. I urn aware the Government must
have a revenue to carry on the affairs of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more and get at tlio pockets of the ■
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 his place this session, and very
littlo during tlio previous one, so we of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before tho notice of
the House. Hnd he (Mr. Chisholm)
been iu his seat, I do not think the Post-
mastcr-Gonernl would have been left so
much iu tbe dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Fraser ns he seems to have been
when he proposed to cut off tho mail
subsidy from that important route, and
there aro other places in the District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider should receivo that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope that in the near future our
District will reach that jioint that we
may look for it to be divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
iu the Dominion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, and when the census
returns nre in I think tho necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation.
The protection of the river bankB at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also tho works for improving
the channel at the Saudheads, iu view
of the expected increase lu our shipping
interests.
I consider the Province should have
control over all railway charters aud
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District iu 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 Serpentine to Fraser River, nlso
tn enquire into the question of cutting
one from tho Fraser Kiver to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to me.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, nnd encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it Is coming here fast
enough; I would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our gloriouB 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 as possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully beforo them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will Bend 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
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I havo the honor to be elected
I assure you I shall watch over tlie interests of this District faithfully and to
the beat of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go as a true British Columbian and to do my duty as such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.
