lip the natte of olltheEnglish-
speaking people of Montreal, we
thank the French speakers who met
at the MecWics' Hall yesterday,
and so warmly and generously ex
pressed their desire that the next
mayor of the eity should bean English speaking one, declaring their
belief that sueh a nomination would
not fail of success. This declaration will awake feelings of cordiality and jtoHwihip | wnicli will iur-;
uiensely i .«Jv. :the i^tef.sts (Sf, Mbtr- I
treal and awake an emulation in*
generosity. For onr part we de not
know any Englishman who would
be more acceptable to most of the
English - 4bait Mr.   Beaugrand.—

all his wars, spent in governing the
country. What Velrerichment may
do was shewn in France after the
war with Otmwny, when the ex-;
penses 3 wet. eut down to 88,000 an
hour. The reason assigned for the
present- heavy expenses is that the
government finds 'it necessary to
give, *orl( i»itfce,unemployed, but
the real itAuisiiirohably that same
extravoganae' which is waiting^be
resources of the Panama canal company.—S. F. Chronicle.
Uawula aud the United Stales.
Dapite of the vaticinations ot
the "prominent 'Canadian," which'
filled the listening car of the equally
"prominent niembef of congress,''
we do not think thnt there will lie
war between England and America
concerning the rights of' fishery.
There are, many reasons why there
should be no war: first, that war is
a game at which less than two parties can not play, and there is only
one party in any way ready for the1
game at present. Canada is hot
that party, for without England's
aid she could not wage siu-iwtafnt
war against one American state, not
to speak of all the American states.
England is not that party, because
she has plenty to engage her attention in Ireland; and were Ireland
pacified'she would still have ample
matter for solicitude in the dissatisfied condition of her own' Workmen.,
And,*.!* 'hjtgltnd and Ireland loth
contended thei would be in no way
justified in entering on a foreign
war while her East Indian possessions, were on the verge of jevolte
And- .weje'VlBdia, loyal,she; wonldl
still have to keep up preparations
for the European war Which is
threatening, if not imminent. And,
secondly, England hat no just cause
for war with us; and, in this century, "Thrice it he armed who hath
hit quarrel .just," might, be amended
to read: "III is he. armed who hath
his quarrel unjust." There is but
one possibility out of whioh. war
may grow between the, two countries, That is a paltering, evasive,
and stupid policy on the part of the
secretary of state. If England
thinks that we are frightened she
will enact the role of bully. When
she hns bullied long enough tho old-
spirit of '.'millions for defense, not
a cent for tribute" will hur) the
party wh.ich,the secretary represents
out of power, and, perhaps, in its
outbreak of heat, demand apologies
and reparation which England may
seek to avert by war. A policy of
dignity and courage at Washington
will dissipate the clouds that hang
on the edge of the international horizon. We have had thn worst, of the
bargain in every fishery treaty that
has beeu made between us., nud.
England since 1783. But as the
treaties have been framed by the
the aid of our commissioners or ambassadors und approved by our sen
ators we have been content to abide
by tho letter of them til) they can
be replaced by a more favorable, one,,
But the letter is so adverse to our
interests that no variation must be
allowed from its strict meaning.
We must hold tenaciously. to the
little that we possess. Neither
brag, bluster, nor bowing and scraping will be effective. A plain, courteous statement of what we mean
and of onr determination to do us
we lay will, work as much justice to
ut at we can get from the interpretation of an unjust.treaty, to which
we have, unfortunately,. become a
voluntary - .piirty, — (jhicago Inter-
Ocean. The cliief cause of tlm fishery misunderstanding is the refusal
of congress to accept the suggestion
of President Cleveland to appoint
a commission' to investigate the
wliole matter. If our Chicago co-
tentporary it'seeking for justice, he
would consent to arbitration. But
it is uot justice ho is after, and, i
therefore, he reaortt to bluff.

'1'uesilny Evening, December -.'8. ltsfl.
The coming Session.
We^iave already 'mentioned that
the cost »</t carrying onlthss^public
and high schools of this province is
becoming   very large, ninl as it is
borne entirely by the government,
the drajn on the treasury is. great.
So long as the present regulations
exist, this will be a constantly increasing' source of public expenditure.   As settlement extends, new
school houses will have to be built
and new schools established;  and
where schools now exist the rate of
expenditure grows with the growth
of population.    The public school
system must: remain free, but the
time is Uot far off when part of the
cost of  maintaining it   will  have
to be borne by the municipalities
instead of the general government.
In this' way the responsibilities of
school, trustees will be greatly in
creased, and   tho   incentive to an
economical administration of school
funds will be supplied.   At present
there is no suoh incentive.     As the
whole cost of maintaining the school
comes from the provincial treasury,
the chief aim. of each school board
is to get as much as it can for its
own school.., If part of these funds
were raised directly from the people
of eaeh seetion or municipality, the.
people,. .vjpuld. take core,,.Jiat'th;ey
elected as administrators of sohool
affairs perspnt. who would.not spend
more than necessary.    We think
also' that j'art bf 'the. cost of maintaining' the 'high schools should be
borne by the municipalities or districts where they are located.   This
arrangement might go into operation at once;  the other might be
postpones for ei-. White ttntU the
schwfc,sectiohs become1'more popri
lous and better organization could
be  wojfed ~to  -better jiflvan'tage.
These are matters which the house
ought carefully to consider. There is
need of improvement in the system
of road-waking which has long prevailed.   'We have many times pro
tested against the foolish expenditure of large sums of money on
roads   at  a time of year when it
could  not be spent to advantage.
Thousands  of  dollars  have  been
wayted'everyyear in this way. The
fact that a large proportion of the
appropriations  for road work this
year was not expended is explained
by the statement that it has been
held oyer till next year for the express purpose of enabling the government to begin road work much
earlier' in the season, leads to the
hope  that a  new  and improved
method of applying these appropri
ations ..has been determined upon.
We shall watch the practical results
next year with a good deal of interest; land if the new order of things
does not accomplish radical reform
in this branch of the administration, other, menus  must be adopted
to that end.   In the department of
justice, also, there is room for fresh.
legislation.     It is a fact patent to
every observer that our magistrates'
courts are not at all serving the purpose for which they were intended.
It seldom happens that a magistrate's conviction or   commitment
stands the ordeal of the superior
courts when attacked by the lawyers.   Convictions are continually
being quashed on the ground that
thc proceedings were irregular, the
information bad, the commitment
informal, or that the court had exceeded its powers.   By this means
many persons of whose guilt there
is no <)pubt, have been turned loose
upon Society to commit fresh depredations.   It may not be easy to discover  an   effective remedy against
this nbu«e, but one must be found
or the remaining respect for justice
will   soon disappear,     tt may be
well  for the -legislature to consider
whenier tliern ought not to be orown
attorneys uppointcd   for each district, or for'some of the districts at
least, or whether thc demands of
justice would be more fully met by
the   appointment   of   stipendiary
magistrates whose duty it would be
to hold courts frequently in convenient parts of the district, or to hold
thoin whenever required.    The person filling this responsible position
would need to he a barrister well
posted in tho law,,   Such a person
could nbt be secured at a small sal-
■ ary,T»u't it would pay to secure him
at a large salary; for t'le quashing
of oouvwtio'iis not only brings the
udmimWMton of'justice into disrepute, but ■ deters many persons from
entering actions for breaches of the
criminal law, and costs the provincial treasury a good deal of money.
It ht* boon extremely discouraging
to tliose who have interested themselves ill 'the enforcement of the
laws ofthe laud to tind themselves
lieatMiat every turn by the weakness
andjtaraarfection of the administration of these laws, and we sincerely
hope Sume scheme may be devised
to modify or overcome these things.

Mobiuakv BTATistacs,—Dr.>' Milne
reports the number Of deaths in Victoria for' tho year 1886 to be 212,
against 304 in 1886. A comparison
with the death rate in other Canadian
oities of about equal population 'shows
that tlio mortality of our city is still
very high. In St. Thomas, a citv of
14,284, the number of deaths iu 1386
was 140; Charlottetown, 12,731 and
205 deaths; Guolph, 11,430 and 133

is very properly called by the health
officer,-most he considered in institution a comparison.—.Vic, Timts.

' Tho regular meeting of the city
council was held last evening.
Presont, his worship Mayor Dickinson
in the chair nud Couns. Douglas,
Calbick, Shiles, nnd Elliott.
A communication was received from
Jas. Ji. Hall, Vancouver, making application for tho position of clerk of
New Westminster city. Stated that
he waa the owner of proporty in the
city.   Received.
, Bills and accounts received as follows
were disposed of: Albert J, Hill, $7;
Thos. Dominy, $2; Mrs. Reich, $150;
Mainland Transfer, 913, ordered paid;
Woods, Turner & Gamble, $42, referred to board of Works; H. Hoy,
923, ordered paid.
From H. Hoy, reporting that Messrs.
Leamy & McGillivray had, completed
the ferry slip for' the gross amount of
$1256.   Report adopted.
Tenders for supplying the cicy with
lumber were received as follows: Brunette Sawmill Co., cedar $12.50 per
thousand, board measure; Royal Citv
Planing Mill Co., cedar plank, $12.00
ner thousand delivered. Tonder of
latter accepted.
His worship hoped the city clerk and
his assistant would endeavor to have
thu city accounts ready to place beforo
the ratepayers as soon as possible.
Coun. Lord reported thut he had
been informed that a certain party had
recently oarried off aome twenty sacks
of imported coke from where it was
stored under the library. It was a
most barefaced transaction.
Coun. Shiles Baid for several years
persona had been taking cokeaw^ay
from that place.
. Hia worship said it waB u matter for
the government to attend to and the
attention of the agent should be called
to it.    . ''..'.•
On motion of Coun. Bonson it was
resolved to ask the government to open
the Thome road at Mr. Patterson's
farm.
Mr. Strong, C.E., who stated that
he was present unofficially, nsked tlie
council not to grant a lengthened lense
to Mr, Ewen of water lot 14. Through
aome oversight tliis lot had boen omitted from the railway company's plans.
His worship said Mr. Ewen'a lease
called for a renewal, and if lie paid the
fees required he did not aee how it
could be refused. In fact tbe railway
company, although building tho wharf
had not asked for any water privileges,
Mr. Corbould was present to
arrange with the council in the matter
of changing the bonds given to the city
by individual members ot the railway
company for tbe operation of the
branch line in perpetuity for bonds
given by the company as a corporation.
After the matter Had been discussed
the following resolution was passed:
Moved by Coun. Elliott, seconded
by Coun. Calbick tlmt the two draft
bonds Uow produced to the council in
the matter of the Now Westminster
branch of the Canadian Pacifio railway
are hereby approved of pursuant to
the conditions contained in the declaration of trust signed by W, C, Ward,
Esq., manager of the Bank of B. 0.
and dated the 20th day of Mareh,
1886, nnd that tho mayor and clerk
are hereby authorized to make same
approved.   Carried.
Council adjourned till Friday evening next.

Editor Columbia**: I was
to read Mr. Watson's indignant denunciation of the Licensing Board for granting that license, but there is ono portion
of hia letter I cannot indorse. He says:
" It is only fair to Bay that from the
known proclivities of ttie members of the
board it Is certain that half of the number of magistrates voted against granting
the license," Now, there is no ground
for any such assumption. The usual
method of freeing themselves from responsibility was open to tliem—tliat Ib,
by stating ao from the banch. Therefore each one of them fs as much responsible for- granting that license as If he
had been the solo occupant of the bench
on the occasion. Proclivities, indeed!
Tliat article has never .counted for much
yet lu British Columbia.

Mr. Alexander Kobiuun, of Exeter,
in writing about one of tho most popular
articles, and one that has done more good
to the afflicted than any other medicine
has during the short time it has been in
existence, says t " I have used four bottles of Northrop ft Lyman's Vegotablo
Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and have
been cured of Dyspepsia that troubled
me for over ten yean. Part of that time
I had it very bad, and I waa at considerable expenso trying to get relief; but
this excellent medicine was the firat and
only relief I received."

The .Telegraphic Test.
The Montreal Jlertdd,in its report
of ibe recant telegraphic test, after referring to the messages that passed
between Old and New Westminster,
says: "But just here the smothered
wriffioWiirtttpefebi-iikoforth. Manitoba bos been the baby of the family
so long, and has grown so accustomed
to be kissed and fondled by the older
ones, to he held up to be admired by

sight ot anothor and younger baby

much to bear. British Colombia, indeed! While the messages were passing through the Winnipeg office the
faces of the Manitobans present were

ire w*3 becoming bluer with
-Uflte. .Human nature has its
id when the British Coium-
\ge$- brother, Ufter boasting
trite -PSttrd do in the future,
absolutely proposed to begin direct
business with England nt once, without
even stopping at Winnipeg, the suppressed indignation buret out, Of
course, auch language as Winnipeg
would aive liked to uie would- not
have bdpfii rteeifed in London—probably it fcuutd fc«o liad aome chemical
effect tnUhi brtttwy ind haye produced Ifi 'explosion; so the prairie
gentleman dissembled his indignation
at British Columbia's attempt to mnke
herself Bomebody, and breaking into
the convocation with " Old Weatinin-
stenj" informed that relative, that
Wij^nLfcvvii the centre of Canada
nnj tl«' greatest metropolis of the
gmta-producing region of North
America. " Weathor clear and bright."
This, of course, gave old Westminster
somo idea of who is vho on this continent and prevented hia being led
awny by nny British Columbia "blowing," nnd at the same time showed
that Manitoba could talk about, weather as well ns anyone else. But he
ratheij throw discredit on tlio recent
utterance-} nf-ilie newspapers "by adding that " wo nre a happy nnd contented people," which, considering

be rounded u^nicely, the Winnipeg-
ger dropped, .ityfc/fHittry and .promised
the teguofthe ling that braved a
thousand years, etc., eto. There was
ir-thing- like this in thc British Columbia effort, and the older brother iu
Loqdon ■ was evidently impressed ns
waB intended. He probably felt
gratufiil that Winnipeg did not claim
io be the metropolis of the British
Empire, an he replied as civilly as possible, though evidently in great awe
of the Winnipeg man, by saying that
he ''had heard a good deal of yonr

Fatal Railway Accident.
ONE MAN KILLED AND OTHERS WOUNDED.
The train from the west arrived
about 8:30 hist night, when the following particulars of a terrible accident
in the mountains yore learned: No. 2
left Field ou time last night, but encountered a severo snow-storm with a
regular blizzard. A double-header
engine was placed on the train and the
largo engine was attached behind to
push tho train up the hill, but after a
great deal of work it was found impossible to got up, even with the three
engines working; Conductor Shields
then divided liu i-train and sent the
sleeper and tii-st-cljisi coach up to the;
safety switch at the top of tno hill.
Tho consolidated engine thon started
up with tho 2nd class coach and the
mail car, and when about half way up
THE COUPLING BROKE
and the two cars started down tho hill
at a tremendous speed. There wore
about twenty persons in'the coaoh, consisting uf passengers and section men,
who wero sont to assist in clearing tbe
truck. AU efforts to Btop the cars by
the application of the brakes were
fruitless. On tbey thundered, gaining
speed with every foot travelled, till
those on board felt as if they were
being hurled from a mountain. Tho
cars were swaying to and fro and
every ono on board knew that at the
first curve the cars would "jump the
track nnd probably be
HUItLEU   DOWN THE MOUNTAIN
side for hundreds of feet. When about
two miles .had been covered in this
way, a safety switch was reached, and
as quite w curve occurs where- it
branches from tho main line, the awful
moment bad come and the two cars
flew from tlie rails. Tlie coach was
dashed over on its side, breaking loose
from the mail oar, which, although off
the rails, shot past bumping over tbo
ties for about 200 yards beyond when,
tho unfortunate coach lay shattered
into fragments. After the mail car
left the rails, riding in it was
ANYTHING BUT AQKEEABLE
and Mail-clerk Cox says one second
you would imagine you were climbing
a mountain, while the next you would
think, the car was being hurled over a'
precipice. At last the trucks became
detached and the car was left sitting
on tho track. When > the mail-clerk
ahd express messenger issued from
their car tbey could hear above tho
fierce bowling of the wind which was
still blowing a blizzard, thq v
SHRIEKS OK THE WOUNDED
in tho coach. A light was secured and
hurrying back a scene, waa presented
which beggars description. Tho whole
inside of the car hnd beon splintered
into match-wood, and bunka, seats and
Snsaengers were piled up together.
Hood was flowing freely and for a time
it was hard to say who wns injured nud
who was not. It would seem that
most of the injuries wero received from
the upper bunks. Ono by one the
passengers wore extricated nnd carried
to tbe mail c:tr, where there was a
good tire.   Some one found
A KEG OF LIQUOR,
which was served round, and one spectator informs us that after its genial
influence was felt, men, who a short
time previous imagined thorns-rives in
the throes of death, awakened to tind
thntexctpt a shaking up thoy were not
much tho worse. Still some of them
were suffering Severely, and with no
one to bind up the wounds, and the
cold intense, tlie situation was anything
but pleasant. It seemed a very long
time bofore any relief came to hand,
but it camo in a measure at last. The
engine came down, and as soon as possiblo tlio wounded were gathered up
and placed in a first-class coach.
THERE WAS NO DOCTOR
nearer than Calgary, about 150 miles
distant, and an engine had to be sent
from Canmore, 70 miles, to Calgary
for one. Dr. Lindsay wont up. The
accident occurred about ll o'clock in
the morning, and the doctor did nut
see the sufforers till nbout li o'clock in
the ovening, when the train reached
Canmore. It whb found that seven et
the party need medical attendance.
One man, Jas. Neville, a sectiou foreman from Field, was injured about the
head, and died on tbe train between
Canmore and Calgnry.—Caff/un/ TH-

The Nerves of Taktk.— The discovery that heat influences one sot of
nerve-points in the skin while sensations of cold avo recoived by another
sot, has been followed by some interesting i tx peri ments, by two Italian
physiologists, which indicate that tho
various tastes result from tlie exciting
of tjuitu distinct sets of norve-libres iu
thc tongue. The prolonged application of ico removed tho sensibility for
all tastes—sweet, sour, salt and bitter.
Cocane destroyed ~™ temporarily, of
course—sensibility for bitter only.
Other substances, such ns caffeine, and
morphia, reduced tho power of
discriminating between different degrees of bitter dilute sulphuric
acid had a peculiar effect, causing distilled ivatov and oven uuifiina t'i tastu

tasted as usual.
The territory of Alberta, in the
Canadian Northwest, contains, it iB
computed, 7(>,325 cattle. 10,025 horses
and 21,300 sheep. Thus, at $40 per
bond, $3,058,000 is invested in cattle,
$001,500 in horses at $60 pur bead and
$85,200 iu sheep at $4 per head. This
is a very goud beginning, considering
it is only three or four yoars sinco tbe
firat attempt was mndo to establish
ranches in the territory.
