From Washington.
(Correspondence of tbe Columbian.)
Washington March S. — Ths
tariff bill presented to the full
committee of ways and means last
week is designed to represent thn
unnual revenue of the government
somewhat more than $50,000,000.
The professed purpose of ull sections
of the tariff reformers is tp obtain as
great a reduction as ean be secureed
without injury to any legitimate industry. The painful differences of
opinion arise in deciding as to what
is and what is not injurious. In the
northwest there will be complaints
that the duty on sugar has not been
cut down further, while Louisiana
will protest most vigorously against
the cut that is made as ruinous to
thn cane-growing industry. Pulp
for papermakers' use is another
matter over which a tight is bound
to be made. Tn the new bill it is
put on the free list. In the present
law it pays a duty of ten per
cent ad valorem. Every publisher
of books and newspapers will recall
the struggle against monopoly which
took place about eight years ago,
when the market for printing papers
was cornered, and the prices run up
so high that many of the publishers
who were operating on slender capital were driven to the wall. There
came then a loud appeal to congress
for relief; but at the first talk of
putting pulp on the free list or reducing tho duty on foreign paper,
the rioh pulp men put the screws
upon the manufacturers who were
in their debt, and the manufacturers turned their backs upon their
patrons and used all their influence
with congress to fight off the threatened change. We' shall 'ftooibly
see the same scenes re-enacted
this year when tbe pager
schedule comes np for consideration.
Salt, wool and lumber will also find
vigorous champions to fight for their
further protection. In short, the
summer's natural dullness may be
expeoted to be enlivened tono slight
degrra by the warfare between the
f rionda of the afflicted industries and
the foes of the treasury surplus;
and the struggle will be all the more
interesting from the fact that every
member of congress knows that his
constituents are watching the part
he takes and are preparing to reward or punish him accordingly on
tho 6th of November.' ■-. That t«i»
half the world does not know how
the other half lives is particularly
true of the gay world here at tbe
capital which now and then resorts
to some astounding expedients for
the purpose of cutting a dash or out-
shinig a neighbor in the matter of
lavish display at entertaining. Kor
is this weakness confined to persons
of limited means, a notable instance
to the contrary having come to my
personal knowledge. In the height
of the season one of the large private
residences was thrown open for an
afternoon tea, at which the company strolled through the spacious
apartnicuts, furnished in the most
luxurious manlier with silken hangings, oriental rugs, sofas, divans and
softly cushioned ottomans ad libitum. The noxt morning the proprietor of a well-known house furnishing establishment was informed
by the hostess of the previous afternoon that the furniture and hangings—valued at $1,000—sent up on
approbation were not satisfactory,
and sho would like to have them
removed at once. The enigma wns
not solved by tho proprietor until by
chance his attention was attracted
to a glowing account in a local
paper of tho tea referred to with a
graphic and detailed description of
tho interior of the handsome house.
Langley Council.

New Westminster thut the Langley

THI AFRICAN COMET.
Rocbestes, N. Y., March 17.—The
African comet was seen at the Warner
observatory thi. morning, and was observed up to within 5 minutes of G
o'clock. It was just visible to the naked
eye and had a tail two degrees long. It
was too near both the sun and the horizon to be well seen. Its position was
about right ascension 21 hours and IC
minutes, declination south 16 degrees
30 minutes.
DEFECTIONS AMONG THE STBIKBSS.
Kansas City, March. 17.—Harry
McMullen, one of those most vociferous yesterday in denouncing .the
"scabs," took out the California express at 11:30 a.m., to-day, for the
west, on the Santa Fe road. His
action was a complete surprise to the
brothorhood, and is attributed to the
influence of Master Mechanic Hawkins. He secured McMullen the position as engineer on the Santa Fe road
several yean ago. Four o'clock, the
popular hour for striking, came to-day
without changing the situation. The
Paola express on the Gulf road left on
on time at 6:30 p.m. There was no
sign uf a strike at that hour. The
Burlington company continues to
.switch freight can to the tracks of the
oth* ro»ds without opposition. Fifty
can of Burlington freight were switched to the Alton tracks this morning by
that road. These can were sent out
of the Alton yards to-night, the engineers making no opposition.

THREE FATALITIES.
San Fbahoisco, Maroh 19.—Jt'hdip
Smith was run over aud killed by tbe
Park and Ocean E. R. train yesterday.
His head was severed from his body.
Henry Langlm was run over and fa-
tully injured by a Sutter street cable

Jack Clark, mate of the tow boat
Neptuno, was drowned last night while
attempting to board his vessel.
THECANAMAN WINS.
San Francisco, March 19.—Yesterday Alameda Mole was tho scene of
one of the most animated spectacles
ever witnessed on the Pruritic coast.
Twenty thousand people were gathered
for the purpose of viewing the groat
single scull match, for $2,000 a side,
between Henry Peterson, of San Fran-
ciscb, and Wm. O'Connor, of Toronto.
It was late in the afternoon when both
men crossed the line, O'Connor slightly ahead. He kept up a steady, measured stroke, maintaining his slight
lead. "O'Connor leads," was the
hoane cry that went up from the
oountless thousands as the tint mile
was covered. Every stroke of his
mighty arms added to the velocity of
his boat, distancing Peterson. " Will
he lose or gain at the turning point 1"
was the next question that presented
itself to tbe thousands of eager watch-
en. As Peterson made the turn,
O'Connor made a long turn. The
Californian's boat was just abreast of
tbe turning point when O'Connor shot
ahead like an arrow, leaving a space of
four lengths between himself and
Peterson. As O'Connor passed the
judges' boat ho dropped his loft oar
•nd raised his band to salute tho boat
whioh had honored him bv dropping
her peiiant and blowing her whistle.
Peterson saw this move aud put forth
his best efforts tu regain tho
time which he had irreooverably
lost, but without avail. A choius
of whistles, bells and cannon
from the yacht fleet, coupled with the
cries of the multitude, saluted O'Connor as he passed the line. Official
time, as given by the timekeeper, was
twenty minutes tinny three seconds.
Peterson was just four lengths behind.
local sports are very much disappointed on the result of tho race, as
they were betting odds in favor of
the defeated man, even after the race
bad siitrtcd. The judges b'iat hovered
close on tho racers, and experienced
eyes noted every inovo of tho contestants. The course rowed was a
splendid one, and the weather could
not have been better. Peterson at
various times during the race made
great efforts to pass his opponent, aud
■truck the water wildly His jerky,
distressing mannor was quite in
contrast with the regular motion of

Chicaoo, Maroh 19.—Chief Arthur
of the brotherhood of locomotive «n-

i thought of the decision of the Santa
Fe men to return to work. "lam glad
they went back," he said. "I adriaed
them to go back, because I did not
think there was sufficient cause for tbe
strike. I communicated with Mr.
Conroe, chairman of the grievance
committee, and aaked him to request
the men to return to work, and then
come to Chicago and settle matters."
Grand Master Sargent said he bad no
information as to the causes of the
strike, or what had induced the men to
go back to work, beyond the fact that
tbey had a conference with the officials
of the road at Topeka, that an agree*
ment was there made that the railroad
would not require the men to handle
any Burlington freight, and they went
hack on the strength of that agreement.

Monday Evening,  March 19,
An elfort is being made in New
York to compel the dissolution of
combinations known as "trusts."
These combinations are monopolies
of the worst kind, and not only do
they put up tho prices of their own
products, but thoy force ovoryone
within nwcli of their influence to
enter tho trust or submit to endless
annoyance. If tho laws of the laud
are not able to reach such cases, it
is to be hoped such laws will be enacted as may make them dissolve.
It may be interesting to the
people of British Columbia, as showing the possibilities of the fruit
' business, to know something of the
California trade, During last year
California sent to Chicago 400 car-
toads of oranges, valued at 8250,000,
and COO carloads of pears, grapes,
plums, cherries, apricots and nectarines, valued at $740,000. Oranges do not grow in this province,
and grapes will probobly never be
grown for export, but pears, plums,
cherries, and apricots are among our
most successful fruits. It will be
seen from the above figures that
these fruits are mote valuable in
Chicago than oranges. The total
value of California fruits, fresh and
cured, sold in Chicago was nearly
three and a quarter million dollars.
It has been said by many people
that British Columbia fruit can
nover compete successfully with
eastern fruit as far east as Winnipeg. This is a mistake.as the above
facts clearly show. If fruit can be
carried with profit from San Francisco to Chicago, it may be sent with
equal profit from Westminster to
Winnipeg. Although the climate
of British Columbia is not favorablo
to the growing of so many varieties
as are grown in California, yet it is
equally favorable for the kinds we
have named, and the market open
to us is bound to grow more rapidly
than our ability to: supply it. California also sent nuts to Chicago last
yearvauled at $130,000. We believe
it would be worth while for some of
our farmers to give nut-tearing
trees a fair trial, We see no reason
why they should not succeed, and in
'a few years tbey would become very
valuable not only us fruit-producing
trees, but for their timber. A walnut grove now-a-days means tt small
fortune, aud walnut is becoming
scarcer and dearer every year. During the past three years large numbers of fruit trees have been planted
in this province; but with our present population and the excellent fa-
cities we possess for shipping east or
west, this industry can scarcely be
overdone.
Some time ago we published a
brief summary of Uie questions considered and discussed between the
federal ministers nnd the provincial
secretary during his visit to Ottawa
last summer. We have now full
particulars of tbe mission, contained
in a return recently brought before
the legislature. The return states
the subjects as follows: "(1) The
Dominion government assented to
the appointment of two additional
county court judges for tho present.
(2) The lands on the lower Fraser,
commonly known as dyking lands,
nre to be surrendered to the province. (3.) The granting of subsidies
to certain railways to be carefully
considered, but no absolute promise
was made. (4.) The opinion was
expressed that it would not be politic to include the Behring sea question within the scope ofthe international fisheries commission, (fi.) Tlio
question of the settlement of the
boundary between Canada and
Alaska was earnestly considered,
and the advisability of British Columbia being beard before a commission appointed to deal with it was
conceded, (6.) A proposition to
plaoe a federal revenue cutter in the
waters which wash the northwest
coast of the province for the prevention of illicit trniHc ond protection
ot our fisheries, although not absolutely agreed to, was favorably entertained. (7.) Assurance was given
that a thorough exploration and stir
vey of our fishing grounds would be
undertaken during the approaching
summer. (8.) Although no definite
promise wu made, reason was given
to expect that the Dominion government would establish an immigration
agency at the western terminus of
the Canadian Pacific Bailway. (9.)
It was agreed that one moiety of
the expense of the Metlakahtla coin-
mission should be borne by the Dominion, (10.) Other questions of
publio importance wero discussed,
but as they still form the subject of
confidential communication,it would
be improper to allude to them more
definitely here." It will be remembered that last summer one of the
mostprolifio subjects discussed by
the opposition press of this province
was the provincial secretary s "pleas
ure " tiip to the capital, and it was
plainly intimated that personal interests were the real motive of the
mission. How far the organs wero
out in tlieir conjectures may be inferred from the above list, embracing questions of the very greatest importance to the province.

The Crast for Mineral DeUats.''
Tho taate and demand for mineral
.Vetera by drinking men is growing rapidly, although it already amounts to a
.raze, ln all sorts of bar rooms and
iiuong all torts of drinkers this taste pre-
mils. Where whiskey, brandy, gin ond
nearly all the spirituous drinks used to
be ierved with an accompanying extra
jlasa, to ba filled with water or not, as
the drinker pleased, the bartender now
tilts a siphon over the glass or uncorks
a bottle of Apolliuaris in readiness for
tho expected demand that the spirita
■hall be diluted. Nine times in ten tbo
drinker floods bis gloss with some form
)f gas-charged water. Urmia in which
these waten form a considerable part
are alio very popular. Gin fizzes, Kama
Cms and other sours, gin and selzer and
even champagne and Apollinaris are ln
frequent demand. One oi tho oldest of
the down-town bartenders, whoso namo
s A. W. Schmidt, though ho is best
known as "William," was asked how he
accounted for this enure, and replied that
he thought it was partly due to the fact
that drinking men distrust liquor sold
over bars and wish to dilute it so as to
take the bad tasto from it, and partly to
the fact men can drink more frequently
•ind yet Imbibe less liquor by the use of
tho mineral waters than when it was tho
fash.oa to take everything "straight." _

the best laid beforo a Westminster

men. under Sergt. D'Amour, will perform the bayonet exercise iu quick
time, whicli, of itself, is well worth the

tmpt. White's ix-unfnll.
Capt. Frank White, of the Canadian
Pacific Navigation Co's. steamer
Premier, who is missing, together with
§2,300 of the company's funds, is believed to have headed for Helena,
whero the soiled dove getierally known
as tho Queen of Diamonds, who is supposed to ho in his company, was formerly mistress of a disreputable house.
Cupt. While's disappearance is inexplicable. He is a youug man and had
tlie best position of any steamer master
nurth of San Francisco. He was receiving $3,000 per year and all of his
expenses paid, and his company placed
implicit confidence in him. He wns
Boon to havo gone tu Scotland to bring
out a new stoamer, which will be the
finest on the Pacific const. She is to
bo put on tho Victoria-Portland route
and Capt. White was 11 have hnd charge
of her. He was the company's favorite captain and had beeu advanced
over the heads of gray-haired masters
in their service. He had a pleasant
homo iu Viet r.a and was one uf the
mostpopu'ar men in British Columbia,
always a hale fellow, well met and a
gentleman. Although young in years
ho was ouo of tho most skillful mariners on the O'-ast. His downfall is
doubtltsa due to tho wiles of a bewitching and unscrupulous woman.
He was generally considered tbo soul
of honor. Evon tho night beforo his
disappearance ho delivered to a Seattle
party $300 that had been entrusted tn
him. Oapt. White's father was, during his lifo, one of the head masters at
Yale college.—Tacoma Ledger.
Taxing Improvement*.
We have received another very long
letter from " Workingmun " on the
question of taxation. This subject has
already been discussed at considerable
length, and we are afraid the discussion cannot be carried on any further
without exhausting the patience of our
readers. Our correspondent maintains that his arguments have been
met by "soph ib try and sublerfugo,"
and* that in our remarks wo hat e "tried
laboriously to cover up tho only issue
at stake." We thought our observations had been singularly free from
sophistry, and thnt wo addressed our-
selves to very common facts iu langunge that every person would comprehend. Thero seems tu bo such a wide
differenco between us mid our correspondent us to the meaning of lerma
and the value of arguments that tu
proceed with tho discussion would bo
a waste tif time. We append that
purt uf tho letter which purports to be
a reply to "Another Workiugman,"
and must ask tu bo excused from publishing tho rust. Our correspondent
says: "This discussion seems to be
getting oxciting, for along conies Work-
ingman No. 2, and hu seems to have a
theory to establish. Ho assumes that
the production of fish, coal, gold, silver, nnd other minerals, is all carried
on in mid air. That is establishing a
theory with a vengeance. With one
bold assertion it is done! Ho doesn't
seem to bother himself about details
at all. Oh! no; his assertion is enough.
He did not, for instance, sny whether
the landlords wore dissatisfied or not
with the arrangements. It was a fine
communication to read, but thinking
destroyed its effect. He seems to
think that thu cnpitalists would (-.imply
carry off tho kind, and where would
the country be/ I favored taxitig for
the U33 of tho community the valuo
which it created, and giving to the individual tho value which tho individual created. I styled this divine justico:
he styled it human avarice. He likes
the present system better, because it is
exactly the reverse As long as men
will refuse to Bee the bounteous provision mado by the Creator for His
creature***, t>o long will wo havo millionaires on one hand, and on the
other porerty and degradation."

A ttckf Man.
Th^a fourth drawing of the New
Westminster building society took
place ou Saturday in tho court house.
The lucky man on this occasion Hns
Mr. David Price, who had only took
up a share in the Bociety half an hour
before the drawing took place. It is
said Mr. Price is contemplating matrimony, aud if this is correct the circumstance is very fortunate, as it will
enable him to begin houso keeping in
a house of his own, entirely free from
tho landlords monthly visit. Tho luck
that hns attended Mr. Price is likely
to induce **, luyg-ii number of young
mon who nre nlso contemplating
wedded life, to take nUtues ill thu
society.
Killed on the Track.
Thi- Local Train Kuiih  Over nntl  lit 11*
an f'nkuowii Man.
This afternoon the local express ran
ovor and killed a man nearly upposito
Scott's ranch, n short distance tins
side uf tho Junction. The engineer
says he saw something uu the truck
ahead, but it luuked liko a dead dog or
a sack, nnd it was not until too late he
saw it was a man. Tho body wus lying
lengthwiso with the mils in such a
manner as not to bo conspicuous until
tho train was close up. Mr. Moresby
was on the local and immediately took
the body iu charge, and brought it to
this city in tho pay car,which followed
half an hour later than the express.
Coroner Ferris was notified and summoned a jury. When the body was
viewed it waa Been that the whole of
the hend, from the lower jaw upwards,
had been severed nnd smashed beyond
recognition. The bowels wero torn
open and the logs both disjointed. In
the pockets of the deceased wero found
35 cents hi silver, a peculiar
pocket handkerchief, a knife nnd a
note book. Nobody seems to know
who the man was, and the noto book,
in which were entered a number of
purchases, etc., gives no clue at
present. The man could not have
been moro than 5ft. 6 in. in height, of
medium build, with brown hair and
moustache. Ho was dressed in a well-
worn and sunburned coat, blue overalls, long boots with hob nails, a bluo
flannel shirt and an old soft felt hat.
The goneral conviction is that the man
had been drinking heavily, stumbled oi
the track,audwent(osleep where he fell,
After viewing tho body the jury ad
journed to the waiting room of the
depot, nnd the evidence was still being
taken as w e go to press.
Miss Mary Campbell, Kim, writes:
"After taking four bottles of Northrop
k Lyman's vegetable Discovery and
pvspeptic Cure, I feel as if I were a new
pet*s6m 1 had heen troubled, with Dyspepsia for a number of years, and tried
many remedies, but of no avail, until I

The Parly Leader*.
London, March 17.— Thu health of
Lord Salisbury is again a matter of
serious concern to his friends, and especially to hiB colleagues, when they
look to the future of the government,
The question of tho premier's ability
to sustain the burden of tho cures nnd
responsibility of olHcu much longer
c;is!s the darkest shadow upon the
outlook. This is otto of the great factors of the politic J situation which
must uot be oveilooked, and from this
cause, if from u*> other, therecousti^ic-
lion uf thu government is possible
within the next fow months. Tlni
opinion prevails iu tho fcijry democratic circles, that Lord Churchill lins regained much of his lost ground while
in the other stations of tho conservative p'irty, tho impro3sion prevails that
ho is just now a Utile overdoing tho
role of candid friend. During the
past few weeks, Lord It-indolph has
been somewhat too miscillatioous in
his criticisms aud it is believed thnt
he recognizes his in ■.stake now thnt
Lord Salisbury'.-* retirement is spoken
of as a | oBsiblo event. Politicians
prufess to bolieve that Lord Churchill
would in such n cave Mimed in forcing
himself not very fur from the front,
but And the difficulty in disposing of
his claims together with those of Mr,
W. H. Smith and Mr. Oosohen. Mr.
Chamberlain, though elated with his
success nud free from tho negotiations
which havo drawn Lord Hartington
moro closely to the government, has
not yot changed his disposition towards Mr. Gladstone, and there are
signs that for this sessi n ho will be
careful to preserve, if hu cun, the gov-
eminent majority. Lord Churchill
looks forwurd to some interesting
skirmishes against tho treasury bonalioi
in company with Mr. Chmnberlaiu,
but the two will be pursuing different
objects. Lord Randolph thinks his
friends have a clear possession of now?
or for two or threo years, and wishes
to rejoin them in office, whilo Mr.
Chamberlain has not any idea uf coalition, und is ready to baok himself nud
timo ngainst all comers for the succession to Mr. Gladstone's liberal leadership. Lord Randolph also believes
that with Lord Salisbury out uf the
way, he could safely aspire to the tory
premiership. Whatever chances Lord
Churchill may hnve for tho tory premiership, Mr. Chamberlain has no
chance of succeeding Mr. Gladstone.
He forfeited all claims he had when hu
turned his back ou his loader and boldly announced ha could await the lnt-
tur's death before returning to the
liberal fold, and that in tho meantime
he would tight tooth and nail to keep
the ex-premier out of power.
