More Honor! for Stanley.
London, May .27.—The admirers of
Stanley at the University of Cambridge
havo subscribed for a gown to be presented to the great explorer on the occasion of bis receiving the honor of the
degree conferred upon him by the University. Tho event is almost unprecedented, for recipients of degrees arc usually obliged to buy their own robes, he-
sides paying heavy fees. It is evidently
intended that Stanley shall have no annoyance in tbe mutter, but be the guest
of the University.
' Astounding Depravity.
Ottawa; Ont., May 27.—A numlrer of
reporters went out last night to investigate the case of a man named Zimmerman, who was said to be running about
naked and destitute on a mountain six
miles southeast of Grimsby. The trip
revealed one of the most astounding
cases of human depravity ever seen in
this country. The reporters found the
man and bad a talk with him'after considerable difficulty. Thinking perhaps
that it was some form of religious mania, he was questioned about it, and he
answered very intelligently tbat ho read
tho bible and believed in God, and
thought that he belonged to the Presbyterian demonination. Though tried on
various subjects he seemed sound
enough, except that he could give no
reason for the way he was living. The
man hat. been living 86 years stark
naked.
Ran fn  the Family.
Colusa, Cala., May 27.—Joe Casey
who shot and killed Dan Mathesou at
William's during a drunken row last
New Year's day, and who pleaded
guilty yesterday, was this morning sentenced to State prison for lifo. Casey is
a son of James Casey who was hanged
by tho Vigilante in San Francisco, in
The Work of Desperadoes.
Murium,, Wis., May 27.—An attempt
was made last night to blow up a Chinese
laundry with dynamite. The floor was
blown into splinters, and the machinery
and furniture wrecked and windows
smashed. Three Chinamen were asleep
in tho building when tho explosion
camo and n door was blown oil" ita hinges
into the bed occupied by Yrp Same, the
proprietor. The inmates were not injured. Two mon wero seen running
away from the building a few minutes
before the explosion, but thee is no clue
to their identity.
A Rabid Ral.l.l.
Cj.eaf.la>;.., Ohio, May 27.—Quite a
sensation occurred here at the celebration of the Jewish feast of weeks, yesterday. The Rev. Wetter, of Baltimore,
began hiB discourse by declaring in face
of 800 Israelites that their ideas of the
Messiah wore ridiculous, that Christ had
been on earth, and his second coming
would bo in the glare of a burning world.
Men sprang to thoir feet in excitement
and rushed to the platform and attempted to tear the Rabbi's cap from bis head.
Several ministers of the German Reformed Church were present and were
instrumental iu keeping the maddened
crowd from doing immediate violence.
Maybe lt   was Swearing.
Lowell, Mass., May 20.—Freddie
McQuade, a 12-year-old school boy,
whose pernicious habit of indulging iu
profane language so tired the patienco
of hiB teacher, Miss Georgia Herndon,
that she decided to discipline the lad in
a way that was decidely novel, to say the
least. She called Freddie before her and
in the presence of the other boys and
girls scoured his mouth with cloths wet
with soap. That night Freddie was
taken sick with dyspepsia from which
he died after a long illness, and now the
boy's parents have entered suit against
Miss Herndon. They claim that the
application of the soap was really the
cause of the boy's death.
The Thlrgvalla Again   in Collision.
New York, May.—20.—The Danish
steamer Thlrgvalla arrived in a leaking
condition from Stettin this morning.
She reports that on the 10th during hazy
weather she was in collision with an
iceberg which stove her stern and bow-
plates.	
Salubrious Ariiona.
Tombstone, Ariz., May 26.— Robin
Hardie, a prominent Los Angeles lawyer,
while on a visit with bis friend Dr. F.
L. Haynes, of Philadelphia, to George
Pritchams, a cattle man here, yesterday
waB shot and instantly killed by some
Apache Indians who were in ambush.
Haynes' horse was shot under him, but
he fortunately succeeded in securing
Hardle's horse and escaped.
A Demon's Fell Work.
New Yobk, May 26.—Another outrage
the abduction of au immigrant girl,
came to light to-day.   Mary Regan, a
Srctty young Irish girl, who landed in
few York from Cork last week and was
abducted from the barge office, has
gone insano at the homo of Michael
Galvin, her uncle, at Perth, Amboy,
She was drugged in thiB city after her
abduction and subjected to terrible
treatment at the hands of an unknown
man. Miss Regan was brought to tho
barge ofllce ana examined by two physicians and declared insane. Sho was
sent to the insane asylum at Long Island.
An Amphibious Professor.
New Yobk, May 26.—A boy from Missouri, named Mercadiecal, proposes to
swim across the Hudson River at Its
widest point with his arms and legs tied
together, aud holding a dumb-bell in
each hand. Some years ago Professor
Balbo, a professional swimmer, swam
the river at its narrowest point with his
hands tied behind bis back, but the rope
was bound h\ such a manner as to allow
his hands freedom sufficient to propel
him. Last July he swam acrosi tho
Mississippi river with his legs bound, a
feat which was deemed Impossible on account of the swift current. Among hia
most difficult performances was that of
treading water for two and one-half
miles, holding a flag in each hand and
swimming on his back, holding a flag in
his teeth. He has also mado a reputation as a life saver, having rescued three
persons from drowning, and he modestly says; "I tako moro pride in this
than in anything I havo done."
, A Wronged People.
St. Johns, N. Fd., May 26.—Tho crisis
in Ural on tbe so-called French shore of
Newfoundland will apparently soon be
reached. Maddened by tho neglect of
the English Government and the increasing Incursions of the French, the
unfortunate fishermen of the west coast
are handing together to maintain their
rights. Under modus vivendi recently
arrived at between the English and
French Governments, the captains of
war vessels of either country are invested withjurisdiction over the fishermen
on the French shore. It is claimed that
tho French are taking advantage of this
power to forcibly expel the Newfoundlanders from their own bays and harbors. A French war vessel entered St.
George's Bay and drove out (he Newfoundland fishing schooners and confiscated thoir nets. Naturally the most
intense excitement exists everywhere
and the fishermen are arming to protect
their vessels against French aggression.
Her Majesty's sloop of war Emerald has
been ordered to the spot.
A Sdottislt Bark In Trouble.
London, May 26.—The British barque
Einbleton, from Androssan was reported
dismasted off the Chillian coast and has
been towed to Monte Video.
No Peace Yet.
London, May 25.—Persons of a peaceable turn of mind, who have a weak spot
in their hearts for arbitration, disarmament and other non-warlike schemes,
have had much to grieve them lately. In
the first place, Mr. Stanley, who has been
a sort of pet with these gentry, has astounded them by sneering at them fn
public as old grannies and fools. Nothing could be more cynical nor more cruel
than the explorer's sudden and candid
declaration of contempt for the pace
contingent. Heretofore he has always
allowed himself to be lauded to the sky
asa pioneer of civilization and Christianity, the opener-up of commerco, the deliverer of the blacks from the bondage of
ignorance, the friend of the missionary,
etc* But now he throws off the mask
and stands revealed as a gigantic land-
grabber, pure and simple; the acquirer
of territory by peaceable methods, if possible, but if not, then by force. At least
the religious societies and peace organisations, such of them as have recovered
their breath since Stanley's recent
speech, are now saying these things
about him. They have also found a
little comfort in the political happenings of the week. Every nation is increasing its armament. Even little
Denmark has felt compelled to show
that Bhe can buy guns just like her big
neighbors, and she has bought her full
proportion at' least, namely seventeen
40-calibre steel guns, and twenty-four
long range pieces of somewhat less
capacity. At home things do not look
much brighter for those who anticipate
a day of universal brotherhood. The
Right Hon. Edward Stanhope, Secretary of State for War, in a speech last
night, stated that the Government was
giving very close attention to England's
coast defenses, which it proposed to
greatly imprpve, and, in fact, to perfect.
Defence is not exactly war, but it implies war, and the Secretary's remarks
make it clear that no delusion as to the
possibilities of disarmament prevail
among these who are responsible for tho
safety of the country, all of which is
doubtless regretted by many people be-
sides "peace cranks.
Fun at Tipperary.
London, May 26.—A meeting at New
Tipperary to celebrate the success of
the new settlement, was held to-day in
spite of the Government's prohibition.
About 2000 people assembled at Limerick
junction to welcome the members of
Parliament who came to attend the
meeting. After they had alighted from
the train Messrs. Dillon, O'Brien and
John O'Connor spoke at the station.
The police were nonplussed as they had
received no orders against such a contingency. They warned the speakers
but were not heeded, and they were
powerless to go further. Afterwards
the speakers drove to New Tipperary,
and Mr. O'Brien was about to address
a targe assemblage there when he was
interfered with by the police and the
crowd was dispersed, clubs being freely
used by the officers. Mr. O'Brien taunted the police with cowardice, but suggested to tho people that they offer no
undue resistance, as he desired to avoid
bloodshed, Mr. O'Brien's attitude undoubtedly ensured a peaceful outcome
of the affair, as the people took their
eue from him implicitly. They resisted
just enough to compel the police to use
force, and a good many heads were
bruised, but no one was seriously injured so far as reported. Troops were
held in readiness throughout the day to
assist the police if necessary, but their
services were not called into requisition.
During the banquet in the evening at
the national school two explosives were
thrown in the street, but no ono was
hurt. .	
A Sensational  Crime.
Pabis, May 24.—Paris haa been startled
by another sensational crime, thiB time
committee iu the Hotel des Mathurins
et de New York, 53 Rue dea Mathurins.
Thia ia one of the quiet, shady, rather
narrow streets that lie behind the Madeline towards the Boulevard Mai Herbes,
selected by Gaborlan as the scene of one
of hia most mysterious crimes. The circumstances attending this latest addition to the criminal annals of that, quarter are of a very peculiar character.
Since the Exhibition a commercial traveller named Blevinski, a middle-aged
man of Polish extraction, who at one
time held a commission in the Russian
army and whose mother has been a
lady of honor at the Court of the Czar,
lias been in the habit of putting up at
Hotel des Mathurins several times a
month. A front room on the second
floor was usually reserved for him.
During each of his stays in Paris Mr.
Blevinski used to receive visits from a
good looking woman slightly over SO
yeara of age, who was supposed to be his
mistress. It la now known that this
visitor waa Mme. Jeanne Wolocstay.
Mine. Wolocstay lived on the beat of
terms with her husband in comfortable
apartments in the Rue Brechant and
Mr. Blevinski was a friend of the family.
On Thursday afternoon she called on
Blevinski again and the pair shut themselves up together. On Friday Blevinski
was met by the garcon who wanted to
arrange the room, but Blevinski refused
to admit him, which aroused the suspicion of the landlord, who entered the
room and found the woman dead with a
bullet wound in her breast. Blevinski
waa arrested shortly after. When conducted to the police station the prisoner
coolly begged tho commissary to ask a
question as he was woundod.   "I assure
Jou," he went on, "that I did not kill
eanne.   She committed suicide becauso
I could not givo her the money ahe required.   She shot herself twice with my
revolver.   I tried to recall her to consciousness, but when I saw that she waa
dead I wanted to put an end to my own
life," aud Blevinski showed the commissary that a partof his ear had been shot
away.       ______________________*
That Double Barrel*
In New Weatminster, Hon. Mr. Rob-
son said (we quote from Truth): " Ho
had often beon accused in tbo Legislature for always getting the lion's share
of the appropriations for his own district, and on several occasions, on account of this, thore had beeu almost a
mutiny in tho Government caucus."
In Victoria, Hon. Mr. Turner, aa re-
ported by the Government organ, said:
" He could not conceive how tho city
could return an Opposition member in
view of the general and special good
which the Government had dono for
Vancouver Island on the whole."
That lion appears to move around.

HOT SPRING BUBBLES.
Our Famous Health and Pleasure Resort.—Gaining tn Popularity Every
Month.
Harrison Hot Springs so little spoken
of three years ago havo now become as
well known ns any health or pleasure
resort on the Pacific coast, and the day
is not far distant when the springs will
rival any resort of the kind on the continent outside of Saratoga. The advantages and inducements offered by Harrison Hot SpringB are superior by long
odds even to Saratoga, the latter being
only a health resort, and fashionable
gathering place, while Harrison combines In offering a dozen better attractions, and all on the spot so to speak.
The waters of the Springs are pronounced
by the most eminent chemists as unrivalled for many diseases, and the
hundreds of rheumatics who have left
the springs complqtely cured are the
best evidence which can be adduced to
prove these assertions. As a pleasure
resort and sportsman's paradise Harrison Hot Springs stand unrivalled ou this coast at least, and
it ia doubtful if any spot
on the wide continent offers tho same
wonderful inducements. To begin with,
the St. Alice Hotel is a really excellent
hostelry, well managed, clean* to a fault,
and offew as fine a menu, to its guests as
the best houses in the Province. It is
built about twenty yards from tho
southern shore of Harrison Lake, and
from the balconies can be obtained
views much more grand.and inspiring
than even the world-famed scones of
Switzerland. If the tourist is fond of
mountain climbing, he can pleaso his
taste in any direction. Only one hundred yards from the hotel is the base of
a mountain four or five thousand feet
high. This is a nice easy one to begin
with, but a dozen more almost as convenient are iu sight, ranging from
five thousand to twelve thousand feet in
height, snow-capped eternally, with an
occasional monster glacier thrown in to
relieve the monotony of their grandeur.
The tops of these mountains are frequented by the mountain goat and
sheep, and the valleys between are the
homes of tho deer, the bear, the wildcat
and the panther. Consequently the
daring hunter can get all the sport
he may desire, and that so
easily that he is not forced, aB
in other i sections, to travel
for days over a rough country to reach
It. Small game, such as grouse, partridge, wild pigeon, duck, geese and swan
abound in the neighborhood, and the
sportsman who is inclined to the milder
forms of sport can also have his fill in
plenty. Then again the fishing is excellent—hard to beat in fact. Within an
hour's journey from the St. Alice Hotel
is a beautiful little lake, fairly alive with
the most gamy speckled trout imaginable. Some grand baskets have been
taken from this lake, the best being probably that made by Mr. John Boultbee
last summer who captured 240 odd in a
single day.   On Saturday last the same
fentleman cnught ten dozen in less than
ve hours fishing, and several other
large baskets wero made the same day.
This Is all that iB necessary to say about
fishing, except perhaps to mention that
the proprietors of the St. Alice Hotel
have a neat little lodge built on the
banks of the lake, where fishermen or
hunters who wish to remain a few days
can put up with groat comfort, aud supplied   with   every   convenience   for
'roughing it" without descending to
unnecessary hardships.
Bathing, yachting and boating are
three forms of amusement which most
people are partial to, particularly the
ladies, if one may judge by the hearty
and general manner in which thoy go
hi for these things at Harrison Lake. Iu
connection with tho St. Alice is a fine
fleet of sailing and rowing boats, neat,
pretty and easily managed, aud procurable at all times; and tho little bays, far
reaching sloughs and the broad bosom
of the lake offer the most delightful
courses imaginable for boating parties,
while secluded nooks at the foot of some
pretty little mountain torrent provido
the most beautiful picnic grounds or
lovers' retreats to be found anywhere,
The whole surroundings are grand,
poetic and romantic, and it is hard to
imagine to what bounds the fame of
Tom Moore would havo extended had
he been privileged with such food for his
fancies as thiB unequalled locality sup-
Elies. To the botanist the shores and
ills surrounding Harrison Lake aro a
perfect paradise. Rare and beautiful
specimens are to be found at every step,
and there seems to be no end to the bewildering varieties in this rich garden
of nature.
The St. Alice has at present nearly 100
guests, congregated from all parts of the
continent, and every day the list is being
increased. The place does not require
advertising, the guests on their return
home do this of their own accord. After
a few days stay it is impossible to leave
without a feeling of deep regret, and a
firm intention of returning at the earliest
opportunity. The place is easy to reach,
being only three hours' distant from
either Westminster or Vancouver. Parties wishing to camp further up the lake
can obtain the Mountain Belle, a fine little steam launch, to transport them to
their destination, and at a reasonable
coat.
In the vicinity of the St. Alice Hotel
a fine little village is springing up, and
the place la already supplied with a post
office and a general store. Several prominent citizens of Vancouver and Westminster have cottages there, and a dozon
more will be erected during the present
season. This Is only the beginning; in
two yeara a hundred handsome cottages
and villas will line tho shure of tho fur-
famed Hot SpringB.

His Worship Mayor Brown in the
chair.
The minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted.
Aid. Shilea rose to a question of privilege and said that be had been freely
accused by various peoplo with having a
good deal to do with the police force
having been at tbe Opera House last
Wednesday evening; but he thought tho
proper way to refute such assertions was
to call upon the Chief of Polico, who was
present, to give an explanation of the
matter and inform the Council from
whom he obtained tho instructions to
havo hia men at the meeting. Tho
assent of the Council having been given,
Chief Pearce stepped forwarded. He
said there had beeu a good deal of his
past history written up and given to the
public, and he had no doubt a good deal
of it had beon read. But a groat deal
of what had occurred on that occasion
waa not hia blame at all.   Iu tho  first
filace tho men were not there through
iia orders or instruction.1.. Only one
man was detailed for duty at tho Opera
House by his orders, as it was tho customary thing to have at least one officer
at public meetings of all kinds. Ho
himself was off duty and, being down
town, took a walk uptothuOpera Houso
to hear what waB going on. He had no
intention of staying, but on entering tho
hall, he became aware of tho presence
of certain characters whom ho deemed
worth watching, ao remained,
HiB Worship.—How many men did
you order to be present that evening?
Tho Chief.—I ordered only one man
to be there, air.
His Worship.—Well, I thought there
was a clause in the police by-laws prohibiting more than one police officer being present at these meetings, unless
specially ordered.
Aid. Batchelor.—Who instructed the
other officers to be there?
The Chief.—I heard that Mr. Thomas
Cunningham had wished special con-
tables to be detailed at the Opera
House. Officer Sawyer informed me to
that effect, but I did not care to take
any notice of Mr. Cunningham iu the
matter, and acted on my own responsibility, but the men went there without
my orders.
Aid. Batchelor.—1 think it is a very
strange thing that the police of this
city should be at the beck and call of
Mr. Cunningham,
The Chief.—They aro not under the
orders of Mr. Cunningham at all. the
men merely went tip there probably of.
their own accord. I instructed Officer
Carty to be in attendance.
Aid. Batchelor.—I heard that thero
had been an unwarrantable interference
with certain persons iu the audience.
Aid. McPhaden.—Did yon see any
sign of disturbance?
The Chiof.—Yes, sir; there was a
man nt the back of the hall who waB
creating a disturbance, or trying to. I
stood alongside of him moro than an
hour. He was saying that this was not'
going to be all a one-sided meeting, aud
ho would see about it.
Aid. Batchelor.—Well, it seems very
strange to me that people should not be
allowed to speak at public meeting of
this kind.
The Chief.—Mr. Kennedy was the
only person who stood up to speak, and
I thought thou and think now that he
had a perfect right to speak.
His Worship.—I think the Police Committee ought to see to it in future that
tho police should be Instructed not to
attend public meetings in uniform. It
looks very bad to see the whole force of
the city on duty nt such meetings. If
they wish to go as citizens let them go
in civilian clothing, and not rudely interfere in the meeting, or anything of
that sort.   That will do, Mr. Pearce.
COMMUNICATIONS.
From W. j. Armstrong, Returning
Officer, requesting the use of part ol
Hyack Hall and Begbie street Fire Hall
aB polling booths for the Dominion and
Provincial elections for .Tune 19th inst.
Application granted.
From Jas. Cunningham, pointing out
the necessity of a drain from John street
to Douglas street to carry off the impurities of that section of the city; and relating what he had done, in the way
of improvements, Baying he spent all he
mado in this line; and how he therefore
deserved a drain. Referred to the
Board of Works with power.
From D. Lyal, tendering hia resignation as alderman, ou the ground that
hiB time is so much taken up with business that he is quite unable to attend
the council. On motion, the resignation
was accepted and a wan ant ordered to
be issued for the vacancy.
From Jas. Haynes, complaining of the
lop-sided nature of the pound by-law,
and saying that it only workB in some
parts of the city and not in others, and
asking that the by-law be repaired at
once. Referred to the police committee
to report.
From Messrs. W. Turnbult A Cotasking permission to lay building material
on Carnarvon street. Granted under
the usual conditions.
From the city scavenger, advising the
placing of a small box on some telegraph
pole, on Columbia street for orders to he
left for him. ., .■
Aid. .sidles thought the City Hall the
proper place.
The scavenger was allowed the privilege of putting up the box he desired.
BKPOBTS.
The Board of Works reported, recommending the acceptance of of the following tenders for streets: John Patterson, Melbourne Btreet and Dublin Btreet,
$4,000; Thos. Allen, three streets at
Sapperton, $925.   Report accepted.
Aid. McPhaden reported verbally for
the Health Committee that in the case
of the petition of Martin nnd others, he
had been unable to find any such lot
as that mentioned in the petition, and
that the petition was evidently meant
for the Vancouver Council. In reference to Mr. Jones' complaint, he found
that gentleman certainly had good
grounds for complaint. Mr. Jones had
been promised hy several people that a
brick wall would bo built to prevent the
nuisance, aud Aid. McPhaden recommended that the city scavenger be sent
to clean out the vault. Carried and the
roport adopted.
UNFINISHED BUSINESS.
Aid. Shiles moved the first reading of
the Street Watering By-law. By-law
read a first and second time.

Harrison Hot Springs, is rapidly recovering health and strength, aud hopes
to return home about Jury first as well
as ovor. Mr. Grant has abandoned hia
idea of a trip to Southern California,
having como to tl.o conclusion that the
waters and climate of Harrison Hot
Springs are all that is necessary to his
complete restoration of health.
PORT HANEY BRICKS.
.From Our Own Correspondent.]
Pour Haney, May 26.—Messrs. Purdy
A Hill have commenced to re-construct
the old McLaren brick-yard, which they
recently purchased from. Mr. W. J.
Harris of Port Hammond. Tho engine
and machine will arrive in a few days
from Eastern Canada, per C. P. R.
A Chinaman got too close to the brick-
making machine in Mr. T. F. Sinclair's
yard a fow days ago; tho result was a
broken cog-wheel aud a Chinaman
minus a que and otherwise injured
about the head..
A Chinese funeral took place here a
fow days ago. The mourners consisted
of two Chinaman and five white men,
one of them a member of our council.
After the burial a bottlo of "sainsuey"
was left on the grave, much to the disgust of the whito men.
Mrs. J. Davidson, oldest daughter of
Mr. D. Dockstcader, arrived here on
Saturday with her two children on a
visit, after an absense of four years in
San Francisco.
Tho health of the community is very
good at present, A few of us seemed
to ho suffering with incipient dyspepsia
the past few days, but since we have
quit trying to digost tho rot published
in tho World, of Vancouver, all the bad
symptoms have disappeared.
Much surprise wns manifested when
Thk Columbian reached bore aud tho report of the Robson meeting in New
WeBtminster was read. The truth of
the matter is tho people nro very indignant at tlio suppression of free speech.
It would seem wc are not a civilized
eountrv, but just a back-woods settlement In Now Westminster District. We
trust that whon the sun goes down on
the 30th of June that Barnum'a Baying
that "the peoplo liko to be humbuged,"
may not truthfully apply to Now Westminster District. THE DAILY COLUMBIAN, NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C.( MAY 27, 1890.

THE DAILY COLUMBIAN
TUESDAY  EVENING.  MAY  27,
THE GOVERNMENT AND THE "OCTOPUSES."
Criticising Mr. Beaven's railway
policy, which tho Colonist states to be
that railways should bo constructed,
owned and operated by tho Govern
ment, that paper ennunicates some sage
sentiments whioh apply, wo fear, with
too much force, according to unmistakable indications, to the party in powor
in this Province at the present time.
Says the Colonist: "We do not desire
" to be at all offensive, or to hint that
" Mr. Beaven is not a man of the very
" strictest integrity, when we say that
" no party loader can change human
" nature, and that tho party which
" starts out as the party of purity, when
" temptation is placed in its way, when
" the opportunity of stealing from the
" public crib is placed before its mem-
" bers, becomes in time as corrupt as cir-
" cumstances permit it to be." The italics
are ours. The sentiment is the Colonist's. And it goes to show the danger
of allowing any party, no matter how
woll it "starts out" (and we will admit
that the present Government, which,
essentially, haB been in power for eight
years, did "start out" well in many re-
spectB, and has done well in many respects for the past eight years),
to hold the reins of power too
long, and especially the danger of
placing such a large majority, comparatively Bpeaking, at the disposal of any
Government, as the party in power in
this Province has had during the last
two Parliaments. And yet the Premier
tells the electors on both Mainland and
Island that they should give his Government a larger majority than ever. He
would have the Opposition wiped out of
evistence altogether. This strikes as
a very pernicious and dangerous doctrine. If the Opposition has beon weak
and despised in the last two Parliaments,
it is rather in the interest of the country, abstractly speaking even, that it
should be strengthened, reinforced,
given a better status,, than utterly
squelched, as tbe Premier seems to desire. But evidence ia increasing
which goes to show that the James Bay
stables urgently require, in the public
interest, if not a thorough cleaning out,
nt least a moat rigorous and merciless
Inspection. It need not be imagined,
as the organs will try to make it appear,
tbat that these last remarks are directed
straight- at the Premier, and he alone—
that he is the "octopus" wc aro hunting. The hireling iouvuals have officiously, aud unkindly to Mr. Robson,
from the first, pushed him forward to
receivo all tho blows, with an apparent
disinterestedness that is ns "cheeky"
as it is "monstrous." They seem to feel
that the "octopuses" muBt be shielded
at any cost, and are very willing to sacrifice Mr. Robson on thia horrid shrine.
We have criticized the Premier, It is
true, and shall continue to do so fairly,
we hope, but our remarks' have been
sufficiently clear so that there has not
been the slightest excuse for mistaking
Mr. Robson foran "octopus." Rather is
he, to acertain extent,one of the partially
consenting victims of these unmistakable monsters. But to return to tho
subject, from a slight digression, wo
would say that, "octopuses" and all
being taken into consideration, there
are the best reasons, even outside of the
redistribution question, why the Provincial Government as at present constituted should not be returned to power
with tho overwhelming and servile following which it has had in the Inst two
Houses. As for the Lower Mainland
constituencies, and, perhaps, Yale District, we hope to Bee them return a
solid, staunch, Independent, Mainland
Rights contingent to the noxt Parliament. We shall not bo sorry if other
constituencies return good Opposition
men, as we believe the party in power
needs a thorough shaking, if not rooting,
up, to broak the accursed rings—call
them " octopuses," if you will—thnt are
fastening upon the country through it.
We repeat, with the high sanction of the
Colonist, is it unsafe to allow nny
party, even a party that " starts
out" as the "party of purity," to wallow
secure in power too long. It indubitably
" becomes in time as corrupt as circum-
" stances permit it to be." It is about
time the people awoke, and sent honest,
independent, and wide-awake men down
to James Bay to look into'the books and
at least give the Augean stables a rigid
inspection. It Ib a good policy, on general principles, to stir up the incumbents of office and their hangers-on at
least once in a decade. Thore are too
many special reasons why such a stirring
up is badly needed, in the country's interests at the present juncture. It is
just in such places and under such favorable circumstances as tho serene repose of a party socuro In power, by an
unreasonably large majority, from one
Parliament to another, that the "octopuses" scoop their nests nnd lay their
eggs. Their eggs have beon already
laid. Let the free and independent
electors see to that they do not have an
opportunity undisturbed to hatch their
ugly brood.   	
Wb are glad to see that tho News takes
the same view that we have expressed
with regard to Hon. Mr. Robson's candidature for this District. In a late
number tho News Bays: "Probably in
" his own interest Mr. Robson could not
" take a more judicious step than to seek
" for himself un Islandconstitucncy. The
" people of the Mainland would, by such
" an act, understand J.is recognition of
" their views, and when tho hour arrives
" for tbe Premier to redeem his pledges,
" ho would be stronger both in voting
" power and popular support than he
" will be if he adheres to tho plans he
" is now pursuing."
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The London Daily News adds to its
announcement that Stanley's marriage
will take place in Westminster abbey
the statement that if the explorer undertakes any further expeditions his wife
will accompany him.
The Fielding Government, (Liberal),
says an exchange, has been returned by
a large majority in Nova Scotia. The
administration has been a most successful one, marked throughout by a desire
to conserve the public good.
The Quebec general elections take
place in June. Nomination haB been
fixed for the 13th and polling for the
20th. Monsieur Mercier has been wily
enough to entrench himself pretty
thoroughly in the seat of power, if not
in the affections of the people of Ontario; and hiB Government, also Liberal, or Rouge, bids fair to renew its
jouth at the polls.
The Ontario general elections will be
held on Thursday, June 6. The campaign will be necessarily a Bhort one,
says an exchange, the politicians having not much time in which to get their
forces in order and do the fighting. The
general consensus of opinion in the East
appears to bo that the Mowat administration (Liberal) will be hard to beat,
and will in all probability get another
lease of power.	
Both the World and the Truth are now
flourishing the following quotation, from
thePremler's speech in this city, to prove
that the Government is pledged to do
away with the "balance of power"
theory after the census: " Every mem-
" ber of the Government had stated
" exactly the opposite. They had stated
" it most plainly to the delegation from
" the Mainland, and in the Legislature,
" and through the newspapers, time and
" again, that the Government intended,
" when the next census was taken, once
" and for all, to disregard and put aside
" the unjust theory of the balance of
" power. Those who had sedulously
" endeavored to mislead the peoplo as
" to the Government's Intentions in this
" matter, had done so wickedly, die*
" honeatly and with no good end in
" view." We repeat, as we have
stated before, the above utterance
of tho Premier is contrary to
the records. But why so diffusive? It
would have been sufficient—and better,
more honest looking, in fact, and a great
deal easier to substantiate—if the
Premier had mentioned just one particular occasion on which the Government,
"and every member of the Government,"
had squarely pledged itself on thiB
question. Since the organs are flaunting thia utterance, and trying to make
the most out of it, we would gently
whisper to them: "Quote, brethren,
quote." Surely if this pledge was
given " to the Delegation und in the
" Legislature, and through the news-
" papers, time and again," it must
appear in cold type somewhere. We
must confess we have not seen it. Produce it, brethren; hunt it up and trot it
out. In concise but expressive phraseology, "Put up or shut up."

CORRESPONDENCE.
RELIEVING THE STRAIN.
Editor Columbian—Sir:—Allow me
to draw the attention of the people of
the Royal City, to a far more important
matter than even the present political
squabbles, viz., the urgent and pressing
demand for a good road and a safe and
convenient croasing over the river from.
the business part of this City to tlie
now populous district southward. I
noticed this morning that the stage to
Blaine was "chuck full" of passengers;
and at the City Hotel a number had to
remain over from the want of passenger
room. One intelligent Canadian who
lives on this side of the boundary line
told me that the settlers over there arc
wondering why the people of Westminster don't make an effort to return men
to Parliament who will look after the
interests of the City and District. He
very sensibly pointed the feasibility of
establishing a good ferry and opening
good roads radiating south, east, and
weBt, to various points in the District
whence travel could directly reach Westminster, its natural trading point and
remarked a direct even narrow-gunge,
railway from Westminster towards
Blaine would be the bent paying and
most patronized road in B, C. It is a
great pity that people should be so much
absorbed in Hellish squabbles, instead
of directing their energies to the real
necessities of the situation.

North Arm, May 20.—The approaching elections are taking the attention of
the people here as well aa elsewhere,
Mr. Sinclair has made a personal canvas
through the settlement. So, also, has
Mr. Kirkland. No police meetings have
yet been held.
There have -been some loyd coin-
plaints against the Fairy Queen. When
that steamer was granted a bonus by
Westminster it was to securo a regular
daily Bervice to and from the city. Of
late it haa been practically reduced to
four daya in a week. Parties from the
South Arm coming over ou Mondays nre
much chagrined to find no steamer.
The marriage of Mr. Alex. Lahore and
Mrs. Magee was celebrated at Vancouver
on Tuesday of last week. We tender our
congratulations, and gladly welcome
Mrs. Lahore back to North Arm society.
Quite a number of North Arm people
spent Sunday iu Vancouuer, to enjoy
the extra advantages of tbat day in the
city.
Mr. Turner on bohalf of tho Government came down last week to make a
personal inspection nnd then estimate
the coat of making the road thoroughly
good from the end of the bridge on Lulu
Island, thence across to tlie South Arm,
so that it can be travelled nt all seasons.
We hope this will not be lost Bight of
after the elections are past.
We are pleased that the celebration of
24th May and 1st July as national holidays is strongly encouraged by the newspapers of our Province, nnd yet we venture to say that those potent educators
of public opinion should throw out some
practical hints as to how these days
might be spent so they would in reality
foster a spirit of loyalty and true patriotism. As it is, these public days' seem
only for saloon men and betting characters.

OKNTLEMKN.-In response to n rco.imlt.ou,
numerously Signed, widen haB been presented to
mc, I beg to oner myself as representative of
this City in the Provincial Legislature.
I frankly confess that, asido from tho great
question of the Just distribution ot legislative
power, 1 would scarcely care to bo a candidate.
If you do mo tho honor to elect mo I shall mako
that question my ilrst consideration at nil times,
and In order to do this lt In essential that 1
keep quite free from any entangling alliances
with either Government or Opposition. But to
tho people and the ndvocacy of the rights of tho
iwople, in this matter and In all others, I can
hilly and freely pledge myself; and with those,
bo they on what side of tho House they may,
who are animated by n similar spirit, 1 will work
cordially,
The present crisis demands Bpcclal treatment.
Woof tlio Lower Mainland aro denied our just
share of legislative power, and so long as that is
the caso our truo policy, In my opinion—nny,
the policy which our own self-respect compels us
to adopt—Is to return no man to tho Legislature
who will not make the righting of that wrong
his first business. It may safely he assumed
that those who shall bo found willing to do
right in this matter, will be tbe most likely to do
right In others also,
Notwithstanding tho utmost dovotlon to this
first question, your representative wlll havo to
deal with many other matters, and perhaps it
will bo sufficient now to say on thiB point that I
believe thoro Is room for a good deal of work before the administration or public affairs can
claim to bo What It should 1«—government by
the peoplo for tho people. I Bhould earnestly en
deavor to ilo my share of that work,
I believe I may safely assume that you need
no assurance of my deep and abiding interest In
everything that makes for the prosperity of Now
Westminster City.
I am, Gentlemen,
Very truly yours,
dmylOlo J. 0. BROWN.

Truth has studiously avoided all

disgraced a public paper. There is not
a word of truth in tho account of Chief

called "Truth." The evidenco has been
maliciously perverted, and statements
that are the most consummate lies, interpolated.

—and sees nothing wrong in the administration of tho Lands and Works

turn green witli envy, if it has a chance
to read the organs.

.Meeting of Englishmen.
The attention of tlio English residents
of Westminster is called to an advertisement in another column notifying them
of a meeting on Friday, tho 30th, in the
Forresters Hull, lo organize a lodge of
the order of Sona of St. George. This
order is composed of Englishmen, their
sons, or grandsons, wherever born, and
is beneficial and social in character. Its
constitution is similar to most other
fraternal organizations, paying benefits
in case of sickness; a death benefit on
the deci'itso of a member or hia wife,
with the additional advantage of every
member being entitled to tho services of
a first class physician aud medicine, free
of charge. It is the strongest order in
existence, composed of ono nationality,
nnd organized for purposes which are
alike creditable to itself and beneficial
to its members nnd the community in
which it is fostered. It has a membership in the United States and Canada of
25,000, and over 3,000 of this number
aro located on this coast iu California,
Oregon, Washington, Montana, Nevada
and British Columbia. Lodges have
instituted within the last two weeks at
Victoria, Nanaimo, Voncouverand Wellington. It is expected to organize n
strong lodge here.—Com.

A Wonderful   Cane.
A lew days ago Dr. Cooper was called
to attend upon Miss Kelly, a young lady
of this city, who was supposed to have
broken her thigh bone by n sudden
movement of the leg. Since childhood
Miss Kelly has suffered from this leg,
and for years has complained of a severe
pain at the knee, but for which no
reason could be assigned nor any remedy found. Not knowing the circum-
stunceB of the case, and supposing the
bone had been broken. Dr.Cooper called
on Dr, Hall to asaiat him in setting it.
Together they went to Miaa Kelly's
home and made a thorough examination, which resulted in their discovering
that tbe thigh was sound. Strange to
sav, the limb had the appearance of being broken, and a medium sized abscess
had formed in the flesh. The doctors
then tried to ascertain the history of the
injury, but could learn nothing more
than that Miss Kelly had had a fall
from a rock some fivoyearsago, and had
bruised her hip. Then, taking this
fact to guide thein, together
with the pains and symptoms,
the medical gentlemen came to
the conclusion that there was
a disease of the hip bone, and
that u splinter was causing the abscess
and the oxcurciating pains. The abscess wns poulticed for a few days to
withdraw tho inflammation, and yesterday Dr. Cooper and Dr. Hall prepared
to removo the supposed splinter. In
making the exploratory incision down
to the bone they came across a hard
substance, which proved to be a large
sized darning needle incystcd in the
flesh surrounding the bone, the point of
which had penetrated one and a quarter
inches into the bone. After much
trouble the needle wub aafely withdrawn, tho decayed portions of the bone
scraped and the wound dreeBed. The
case is one of the most wonderful thnt
haB ever come before the medical profession in this Province. It Is supposed tho needle penetrated Miss Kelly's foot when a child;
and gradually worked up to the position
in which it was found, nnd thero is little
doubt but the.operntion snved tho young
lady's life. Dr. Cooper feels confident
Miss Kelly will be about again in n few
days, completely restored to health and
strength.   _	
uiRsting Extraordinary.
It iB more n matter of good luck than
good management that the city coroner
has not n dozen or so blackened corpses
to deal with every morning after breakfast. The outrageous manner in which
Mr. Fraser, the contractor on the North
Arm road, is carrying on his blasting
operations, iB beyond description. No
one would beliove how bad the thing
really ia unless he saw the spot. The
condition of the locality named, the
North Arm road within tho city, pre-
scuts ii very singular appearance. Before the door ol each cottage, and in
many cases not more than ten feet from
the walls of these frail structures, enormous pits can be noted; and
lying on the edge of theae excavations are stumps of vast magnitude. It is hard to believe thnt
these ponderous masses were actually
blown out of the solid earth by menns of
the most tremendous explosives known
to man. The proximity of the dwellings
seems to render such nn assertion
absurd, But it is true; with a recklessness worthy of a madman, large quantities of theBe high explosives—four dinner pails of blasting powder, several
sticks of dynamite and a quantity of
Judaon's giant powder ia tho usual dose
-are placed under the stump, a fuse set
and lighted and then the unfortunate
inhabitants and their fragile houses
have to trust to Providence not to bo
blown into the middle of next week. It
is no fault of the contractors that they
aro not. Incredible and unwarranted ns
the statement may seem, no deaths or
serious injuries have been reported
through this excellent means of acquiring these undesirable things. One
death, however, will put a stop
to tho proceedings, cost the city
n pretty penny nnd forever put a
stop to blasting inside the city limits.
A death is momentarily expected, as
tho person who goes up in that direction
literally takes his life in hia hands. All
the roofs and verandahs around that
section carry a thick Bprlnkllngof earth,
stones and gravel, while the meii- working on Moody Square aro also at the imminent peril of their lives. Showers of
stones double the size of a man's fist
drop around them all day, after tho
blasts, and that not one of the men has
been killed is truly marvellous. The in
habitants of that part of the city have
besought and prayed a cessation of these
murderous hostilities in vain; it appears
that until someone haB his skull smashed in or brains blown out the bombardment will go on unceasingly. The cheapest plan would be for the authorities to
assert their power by a timely interference.

Strange Poisoning Case,
This morning at an early hour Dr. J.
M. McLean was summoned to attend u
man named William Morrison, who was
described as suffering from fits. The
man lny in n room over Lund's cooper
shop. He hnd been dead five or ten
minutes when the doctor arrived. The
doctor ordered everything to be left as it
was, and, locking the door, gave the key
to Officer Smith.
The body during the forenoon was
subjected to a post-mortem examination,
and every symptom of poisoning waa
found. Dr. Walker in evidence stated
that he found a brownish-colored liquid
oozing from the mouth, and when the
internal organs were examined he found
the stomach distended with gas and a
liquid exactly similar to tbat found at
the mouth and in the gullet. The right
side of the heart was distended
with liquid blood, and the left Bide was
empty. Dr. Walker said that a bottle
containing this same fluid was found in
the room where death occurred, and he
was of the opinion thnt this liquid was
the immediate cause of death. It wns
apparently mainly composed of tobacco,
aud seemed to be n decoction of leaves,
probably tobacco-leaves. Very strong
tobacco would produce the symptoms
found on the body of deceased, but it
would be impossible to say positively
what the ingredients were without analysis.
At the inquest this afternoon a friend
of tho deceased named Cook, testified
that deceased had betrayed strong signs
of uneasiness for several days before ids
death, nnd confessed to witness thnt he
hnd once belonged to a certain order
nnd had n falling out with some of those
iu the lodge, and said something he
should not have said, one word only.
He uttered the word involuntarily and
some one who was near wont nnd told
the circumstance. From the trouble
which arose over this matter he waa
perpetually haunted by tho fear that
he would be mado away with, and last
night he was especially timorous and
said something about certain people
coming to burn down the house. He
seemed much oppressed with the'idea
that someone was dogging him intending to do him harm. Deceased handed
witness a letter yesterday morning ns
witness wns going out, telling him to
take the letter nnd put it in his trunk
ao that if anything happened to
him witness wns to give the letter to
the sheriff, which witness did. Deceased
nlso gnvo witness some money wrapped
up iu a parcel, saying, "take this, and if
anything happens to me you'll see me
through." During the night witneBB
wns awakened by a terrible groan, and
on rising up quickly he saw deceased
writhing in grent pain, and he seemed
to be in convulsions. The doctor was
then sent for, but when he arrived Morrison was dead,
Witness suspected that something wbb
about to happen and tbat deceased was
Bcarcely in his right mind. WitneBB had
known deceased since last fall and lived
with him two months. The fact of having given out some of the secrets of the
secret society to whioh he alleged he belonged, seemed to weigh heavily on his
mind. He seemed in constant dread of
some condign punishment or vengeance
from this society, the Free Masons, and
on meeting some men about a month before 1ub death, while out walking, he
had exhibited every sign of mortal fear.
The packet entrusted to witness contained $252.00 in bills and silver, two
rinus, a loaded revolver and a watcli.
The jury returned a verdict to the
effect that deceased had come to his
death by poisioning during a fit of temporary insanity.
ATTENTION, ENGLISHMEN!
ENGLISHMEN, THEIR SONS, OR GRAND-
sons, are invited to attend a meeting at
FORESTER'S HALL, Columbia St.. for the pur-
liose of organizing a Lodge of the Beneficial
Order. SONS OF ST. GEORGE. Meeting on
Friday evening, the 30th May, nt 7.80 p.m.
dmy27M CHAS. WILLIAMS, P.G.P.
POLITICAL NOTES.
In tho Spallumchccn District it is
stated that Mr. Donald Graham has
given up his intention of being a candidate, but that Mr. Rabbit, of the firm
of Wood A Babbitt, will contest the
seat with Mr. Vernon as an Opposition
candidate.
Mr. A.E. Raab returned from Revel-
Btoke on Wednesday evening. He reports political matters lively in that
burg, with candidates as thick as—well,
the woods are full of 'em. He predicts
a defeat for the Government candidate
in both Kootenays, but of that more
anon,—Sentinel.
C. A. Somlin, M.P.P., is doing missionary work in West Kootenay, says
tho Sentinel, in support of the Opposition candidates who have taken the
field. From the roport to hand there
will be no dearth ot candidates in West
Kootenay and the feeling runs high both
for and against the Government.
Rumors are rife aB to the probable
candidatea for Yale District in tho np-
Scouching contest. A meeting held nt
icola thia week, at which, by the way,
there were present eight electors in opposition to the Government, and seven
Government supporters, invited Mr. A.
Irwin to take tho field as an Opposition
candidate, with the understanding that
if tho Opposition organizer, Mr. Semlin, considers Mr. J. D. Lauder a stronger
candidate Mr. Irwin is to retire in his
favor. In Nicoln District it is said the
electors will divide Government vs. Opposition, nnd tho straight ticket will be
voted by ench party.—Sentinel.
Victoria City, it iB a foregone conclusion, will return at least two Opposition
candidates, Messrs. Beaven ana Grant,
with even chances for a third, who
would probably be Dr. Milne. The
other Opposition candidate, it will be
remembered, ia Mr, F. G. Richards, and
the four Government standard bearers
are Hon. Mr. Turner, Capt. John Irving, and Messrs. Simeon Duck and Wm.
Dalby. Mr, Charles Wilson, n young
nnd likely legal light, was rejected by
the Government convention by a narrow minority of votes, but is running
"on his own hook," thus having a
tendency to split the Government vote
in Victoria.
In Yale District Mr. C. A. Semlin, the
veteran Oppositionist, is sure to be reelected, and is very likely to carry two
colleagues with him, giving an Opposition gain of two in that Distriot. Lilloet, with its two members, is certain to
return two Oppositionists, at leas], this
time, and Cariboo, with its representation of three, will almost certainly return at least ono to swell the ranks of
tho Opposition, with a good prospect for
more.
So certain is it that two Opposition, or
rather Mainland Rights, candidates will
be elected in Vancouver City, that it
has been found impossible to get any
ono to take the field so far in tbe
" straight" Government interest.
Westminster City will return Mayor
Brown, a staunch and tried and able
Mainland Rights man, by an overwhelming majority, should anyone, indeed,
have the temerity to oppose hiin on the
" straight" Government ticket.
The District of New Westminster will
certainly return two, and in all probability three, independent Mainland
Rights candidates. At the convention
to-morrow at Langley a complete ticket
will be selected,.and'a united and vigorous effort made by all patriotic electors
throughout the District to return the
unbroken ticket.
Aaeent of Mount Benson.
A party of five men consisting of
Messrs. J. Brown, jr., J. E. R. Tngarl,
Thomas Wall, Gladstone Foster and
W.Hirkham, were successful in reach'
ing the summit of the big mountain on
Sunday. Leaving tho city shortly before six o'clock and proceeding by way
of David Westwood's ranch, the flag-
staffonthe top of the mountain was
attained at 11 o'clock. Here a long halt
for rest and refreshments was made and
it was late in the afternoon before the
descent was commenced. When about
two-thirds up the mountain side the
first sign of snow upou the ground was
encountered, which quickly became
deeper and deeper, the depth in places
near the top amounting to 8 and 10 feet.
This, instead oi being a hindrance was
of the greatest service, as the surface
was hard and easily bore the travellers.
The heavy-weight of the party, however,
occasionally came to grief by falling
through, and his efforts and struggles
to free himself were among the amusing
incidents of the day. No large game
was encountered, but the mountain
japs were met with in large qunntities
and woro much admired, — Nanaimo

NUMBER 07.
TO THE ELECTORS
 OF	
New Westminster  District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to till 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 fn 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 80 years in thiB Province and inucti intercourse with our
American cousins has had the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
ine liberal ideas, therefore I claim I am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that party lines are not defined In
British Columbia aB they are in the older
provinces, 1 consider that our representatives are 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
good 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 the interests of this Province
they should take their stand like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way flora the centres of manufacture in
thu East, aud many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, and in many cases the articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our 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 our wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and are met with such heavy duties
that heads of families in tins Provinco
pay more than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
Wc have had example to the point during the last three months. If wc had
not received a good supply from California there would have been a meat
famine; as it is we 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 iu spite of
"Protection" for the last eleven years
our stock raisers aro little hotter prepared to meet hard winters than they
were before, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
N. P. are the manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question,I wouldadvocute''Reciprocity
in many articles which are at present in the Tariff' lists, as I think
it would Ihj 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 ami
wear. I am aware tho Government must
have a revenue to carry on the affairs of
thu country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more and gut at the pockets of the
richer classes who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of tlie late Mr. Chisholm, he was unable
to be in his place this session, and very
little during the previous one. so we of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before thu notice of
the House. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
been in his seat, I do not think the Post-
maBter-General would have beon loft so
much in the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities ou the'
Lower Frnser as he seems to have been
when he proposed to cut off the mail
subsidy from that important route, and
there are other places in the District
which iieed better postal facilities, which
1 consider should receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
1 hope that in the near future our
District will reach that point that wu
may look for it to bo divided and receive another representative. At present 1 think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, and when the cunsus
returns are in I think the necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation.
The protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Hunias, Burton's Prairie nud
othor places should receive my earnest
attention, also the works for improving
thu channel at the Snndheuds, in view
of the expected increase in our shipping
interests.
1 consider tho Province should have
control over.all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, Iwing of such
great importance to this District in particular, 1 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, also
to enquire into thu question of cutting
one from the Fraser River to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to me.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostured, and encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it in coming here fast
enough; 1 would not liko to see a large
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
Thero 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 before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send due notice of time and place of meetings.
During my long residence in the Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted ita growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
House iu a practical, business-like manner.
Should I havo the honor to bo elected
I assure you I shall watch over the interests of this District faithfully and to
the beBt 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.

undertaking of this most Important work.
As you are aware, tlte duty on certain kinds
of mining machinery has been remitted in this
Province ns u special concession to British Columbia on ucenunt of the special conditions obtaining here. I would strongly urge tho further
application of this principle of special tariff arrangements, so us tn relieve consumers of goods
which must he imported, while preserving the
protection of our agricultural and other interests.
The land laws of the Dominion, having been
framed without close consideration of our requirements, aro in many points unsuitable, for
example iu tlie conditions as to clearing. I
would endeavor to secure immediate reform In
this Important matter.
Subsidies having been granted to railways In
the various Provinces of the Dominion, 1 should
urgently present tbe claims to similar assistance
of railways within onr own Province.
Should the City of New Westminster decide to
build a bridge across the Fraser, 1 should use
my best endeavors to obtain a substantial subsidy for the work, urging that an undertaking
of tills character should rank with canals and
railways as ono entitled to national aid.
The next census will undoubtedly show such
an increase lu the wealth and population of thi:
District as will constitute an undeniable claim
to increased representation in the Commons,
That claim, If elected, I shall support to the utmost of my ability.
Although, with tho growth of tho District,
the mail service bus beeu Improved and ox-
tended, It still lags far behind onr requirements.
I should give special attention to this part of
your representative's work, feeling that it is
one which is of vital Importance.
I should urge tho enactment of such fishery
regulations, especially 111 the Issuing of licences,
as would, without any Injustice, to the canneries, tho Importance of which to tho prosperity of
the District all .must recognize, fully protect
the free llshermcn, and encourage the settlement amongst us of the greatest possible number of thnt industrious nnd hardy class of men.
All enactments and regulations for the protection nf white labor would receive my hearty
support.
Continued work towards the Improvement of
the harbors of New Westminster and Vancouver, ami the efficient lighting and buoying of
the satm, is a matter which would have my
closest attention at all times.
In a word, I should constantly urge upon the
Government the wisdom of a liberal policy In
public works In this District, the vast resources
of which make It certain thnt such u policy
would bo amply justified hy results.
Trusting tu have the opportunity of seeing
every elector bofore polling day,
I am, Gentlemen,
Very sincerely yours,
