Canoda's theory that thii oountry

aid will do to laugh at until the
peach crop Uar oomea along.-—Plaiay
delphia Timn. Canada's theory ii
not that tbt United States can't get
along without Canadian aid; but
Canada has a theory that ahe might
possibly be able to pull through
witfcout American trade. Ilie van
ity el the average American when
he sets forth the opinion that Canada most trade with the United
Btatee or dta, ia funnier, even'than

The Times may, however, be pardoned for |ta present erroneoue iueag
of Canada. R is only a little more

General Btfler hae to be added to
the long lilt of officials who have
been sent to Ireland by Conservative and Reform govenimenta alike,
tb enforce the law against the poor
peasants of Ireland, and who have
been converted by their experience
from believers in coercion to believers in the urgent necessity for reform in the criminal and land laws
of that unhappy country, in favor
of the poor people. General Buller,
who wai lent out to break up the
murderous bands of moonlighters in
Kerry, did hii work thoroughly and
well, but he hai aleo, like the brave
and gallant officer he hai proved
himself in many parti of the world,
given hii' testimony in favor of the
weak and of the miserable, who
have, been suffering frem unjust lawi
inequitably administered. General
Buller ii well known in Canada, he
having been a member of the Red
River expedition of 1870, and having many relatives and friends in
the  Dominion.—JfonfreaZ Witness.
A retaliation bill hae finally pas-
atd both houiea of congress at Washington. Thii remit hu been arrived at by the house accepting the
bill of the aenate. Tho houae bill
proposed to break the connection of
Canadian railway* at the frontier
by shutting out Canadian can and
their contente; the eenate bill, to
whioh the houn- haa reluctantly
agreed after formally, objecting to it
for aome time, stops abort of this.
The administration waa in favor of
the more sweeping meaatwe. It
will, be in the .power of thepreii
dent, after he baa aigned thii bill,
ihould he aee came, to ihut out Canadian vessels. An expression of
opinion, on what founded we know
not, cornel from Washington, that
the president will pigeon-hole the
MIL I/ord Salisbury ia reported to
be considering the queitioii in a conciliatory | spirit, and in the hope of
reaching some conclusion by which
irritation and trouble may. be avoided, during the coming wason. That
he may be successful ii devoutly to
be.wiihed.—Monetary Timet,
Tht legislature of Missouri, in
refilling to indemnify the militia
called out to preserve order during
the strike, hu struck a severe blow
at constitutional government. Every
child must see that civilisation, progress and prosperity are only possible when law is respeoted .and en
forced. When workingmen oppose
tht adoption of neoeuai-y measures
for' tbt protection of life and property, they are fighting against their
own'intareaU; for no busineu oould
be carried on, and no workmen conld
find empfoyment if property ihould
be left at the mercy of the mob.
The claim of tbe laborer is that the
capitalist is a monopolist end oppressor, and that any attempt to protect
him il an oppression of the poor
man. The fact is that oapital is
necessary in every kind of business,
and tbat somebody must always own
and control that oapital. Many ot
those who are now working as mechanics will become employers within a fsw yean, and, to be so, must
become, to a greater or less extent,
capitalists. They must also feel
that they will be protected, or they
will not invest their savings in an
enterprise whioh may be destroyed
any day by a lot of striking workman. Commissioners should be
appointed to investigate the oom*
plaints of the wage-workers, and
every real grievance should be re-
dressed by law, ae far aa it is possible to do so; but mob-law must not
be allowed under any circumstancee,
fcr it means universal ruin—a re*
turn to savagery,—N. Y. Witness.

FBIIOHT  ACTIVITY.
Sis Feikcisco, Mar. 20.—The near
approach of the time when the interstate commerce Ml will go into eflV t
and the expected consequent rise in
freights has caused tremendous activity
in both the east and the west-bound
freights. It is believed that the
week's business will exceed that of any
other week in the history of the Paoific
railroads.
Bbbmh, Mar. 26.—The North German G«se((e has reproduced an artiole
from France, ot Paris, on the Emperor William's birthday, containing an
insulting reflection upon the German
people, and adds: "If we expose these
effronteries of the Frenoh patriotio
press, it ia not in order to subject them
to criticism. It ia simply to add to
the extensive documents whioh will
one day give evidence of the calm patience with which Germany haa borne
French insults."
HtESS AND GOVEDMENT.
City or Mexico, Mar. 20.—A sectiou of the press in this country is attacking the administration on the
ground that it favois too strongly the
American interest*, giving special encouragement to the construction of
railway lines from the V. S. and not
doing enough in the direction of building inter-state lines.

London, Mar. 26.—The annual boat
race between the cresra of Oxford nnd
Cambridge universities took place today from Putney to Hortlake and was
won by Cambridge. The wind was
fresh snd the water lumpy. Just before starting betting was 13 to 18 in
favor of Cambridge crew. When enws
launched their boats in readiness for
race weather was tlireateningrain. The
Cambridge oar at once took lead, row
ing with a slightly more rapid stroke
than Oxford. At the end of the firat
mile Cambridge was half a length
ahead, Oxford then spurted. Cambridge responded instantly and effectively, so that at Hammers-bridge,
nearly two miles from the start, they
had increased their lead to a whole
boat length. Here Oxford again put
on a fresh spurt and drew up, but
managed to cut down only a part of
the lead. At Bumes'-bndge, three
miles and gve furlongs from uie start,
Cambridge was leading by a lengt'i and
a half. After passing the bridge Oxford broke au oar. That of course
secured the race for the Cambridge
men and they .won easily by throe
lengths. Tlie teas was a lino contest.
The time of Cambridge crew is 20 minutes 52 seconds.

THAGEDY IN THE PALMES HOl'BI.
Cbig'Ago, Mar. 25.—The large dining room of the Palmer House wu the
scene of a tragedy at 2 o'olock thia
afternoon whioh threw the guests into
a tremor of excitement and caused a
serious interruption to the meal for a
time. Philip F. Beading, one of tiie
waiters, who wu discharged this morning, entered the room aud approached
Chas. F. Jordan, the head waiter, and
commenced remonstrating at his summary discharge. Jordan pushed him
off, which only exasperated Beading,
who, when he found his words of no
effect, hissed through his teeth: "111
murder you." Next instant the polished barrel of a pistol dashed and before anybody could move a bullet entered the head of Jordan. He had
partially turned away and the ball entered above the right ear. The guests
surrounded the wounded man and carried him to hia room. While everything wu in confusion Burling succeeded in nuking his escape.
CARDINAL OIBIONB   AND  IIS TITDLAB  '
CHUBCH.
Home, Mar. 25.—Cardinal Gibbons,
archbishop of Baltimore, Md., to-day
formally took possession of the Basilica of Santa Maria in the Travestere
as his titular church. He wu arrayed
in the splendid robes of a cardinal.
When he reached the door of the
church he knelt upon the cushion
placed there on a strip of carpet. The
canons belonging to the church and the
students of the American college in
Rome, wearing surplices, were waiting
for the archbishop. The cardinal,
after kneeling, kissed tiie crucifix,
then put on his beretta and so covered,
placed the incense in the thurible,
then again knelt and bared his head
and took upersoriura from the canon
who had presented the crucifix and
signed on himself the sign of the cross.
Then replacing the beretta be uperged
the people present with holy water,
after which he again removed his
beretta aud wu thrice incensed by tiie

the "Antiphon tea Bactrdos Magnus,
At the altar the blessed sacrament wu
administered and all knelt for a short
time in prayer* The procession next
went to the high altar in the apse. A
throne with white back and crimson
oanopy had been placed upon which
which the cardinal seated himself, ths
bishops and priests in attendance being
seated about him, The prothonotary
raonsignor pericole thereupon read in
Latin the papal bull assigning the
cbureh of Santa Maria in Travaatera
to Cardinal Gibbons u his titular
church. The address from the canons
to the cardinal wu then read in latin
by Canon Franoisoo Ardini. It wu of
great length. To tins Cardinal Gibbons, remaining seated, ahd wearing
his beretta, replied in English, expressing his gratitude to the Pope and
reciting the history of the church, to
which he assigned the foundations
which Were laid by Pope Calixtus in
the year 274. He then recited the
early Catholic history in America, ahd
.aaid: "For myself uaoitisenof the
U.S., and without my eyes closed to
our shortcomings u a nation, I say
with a deep sense of pride and gratitude that I belong to a country where

Her harbors are open to welcome the
honest immigrant who wishes to advance hia temporal interests snd find

to have a free government, perhaps we
do not deserve the credit thst belongs

and her strength lies under ths overruling guidance of Providence, in the

tho loyalty of her citizens and in the
affection of her people for her free in.

aooinl problems now engaging tite earnest attention of the citizens of theU.
S., but I have no doubt that with
God's bleujn g these problems will be
solved by a cajm judgment and with

The eardinal'a voice was strong and
ringing, each word he said being distinctly heard, although he spoke .under
the disadvantage of being seated behind an altar. He rose toward the
conclusion of .the address, which wu

Rebuking Their Represent!*-
lues.
The following letter, sent from
Maple Ridgo to Hon. John Robson, appeared in the Colonist a. few
days ago:
SlE.—We, the undersigned, wish to
record our disapproval of the conduct
of your colleagues, the representatives of
this district, in their malicious attacks
upon you, as manifested by a resolution
brought before tlio assembly on tho 10th
of Msrch. According to tho published
reports that resolution is an embodiment
of malice, and is unjust in the extreme.
It is difficult to conceive what object
Messrs. Orr and Ladner wish to accomplish by their untruthful tirades of ubuse
upon you. To the best of our knowledge you used no undue influenco hero
to secure your election. We were present at the public meeting in June lust.
You did not make tho promise of which
you aro accused, neither did you Btate
that $100,000 drydock money was in the
treasury to the eredit of the mainland.
What you did say was: "Thot the balance unexpended on the mainland of thu
drydock refund was stilt owing (mainland); and would be expended from year
to year, as the requirements of the several districts would justify."
Geo. Howison,
Chairman Pub. Meeting.
W. J. Harris, Reeve,
H. Fkrqoson, Councillor.
John Laity, "
Jas. Wm. Sinolaik,. "
Arch. Docksteader, "
Maple Ridge, B. C, March 10, '80.
In publishing this protest the
Colonist mentions that it has re
ceived several letters from persons
residing in the district expressive of
the strongest disapproval of the
conduct of Messrs. Orr and Ludiiev,
especially in bringing forward the
motion of want of cdiiBdenco in
their senior member for the district.
We have ulso received similar expressions of opinion from persons
who h*d been foolish enough to voto
for Messrs. Ladner und Orr iu tlio
belief that they would not oll'er a
faotious opposition to tlie govern
ment. The protest published above
is very emphatic, and us it bears
the signatures of the reeve, the ex
reeve, and the councillors of the
municipality, it may fairly be no
cepted as an index of public opinion in that locality. We believo it
will be found that a similar state of
public sentiment prevails to a lnrge
extent throughout the district. It
is admitted on all sides that the motion of censure was a mistake. It
may be that technically there had
been a breach of the statute regulating the powers of the ministers inasmuch us the provincial secretary
appeared by tbe public accounts to
have given instructions for the expenditure of sundry moneys in the
department of lands and works.
But wa are sure no one unblinded
by party prejudice will assert that
there wos wrong intent in this expenditure. It was undoubtedly
done with the knowledge and con
sent of the chief cotnnrssioncr, who,
probably, left to the provincial secretary the distribution of the appropriations required in the district of
which he was the senior representative. Wo havo already said that
no ono will give Messrs. Orr and
Ladner or Mr. Bole eredit for having been animated by patriotic motives in bringing forward this motion. Their conduct in the house
throughout the whole sossion hus
been such as to leave tho impression
thut it was not. the good of the people so much us tbe injury of the
provincial secretary tbey were after.
It was the belief of the opposition
party in this district that it could
sweep the riding and defeat the pro
, vincial secretary. Ilut the electors
refused to accept the opposition programme, and returned the provincial secretary at the heud of the
poll, This, wo suspoct, is tlie real
cause of all the trouble. If the
olectors had. not preferred the provincial secretary abovo his two colleagues in the district, quite possibly
these two colleagues might havo
been content to let hiin alone iu tbo
house. But the electors know wiio
hss been their friend and who Ims
not. They know that the district
never received anything like justice
from any government until it olect-
• ed as its representative thc present
provinoial secretary. They know
tbat hs has. interested himself more
than any other representative in the
development of the district. They
know that during the past four
years the government of which he
is a member has spent for public
works in the district $206,205,
while the government of which the
present opposition is the remnant
spent hut $28,904'during the last
four years of its existence! In the
face of these facts one need not
wonder that the electors refused to
reject the provincial secretary to
gratify Messrs. Orr and Ladner, or
that they ara now protesting against
the course pursued by these two
gentlemen in the liouso. Tho Maple
Ridge protest not only oondemns the
conduct of Messrs. Orr nnd Ladner
in ths house, but it distinatly con-
trsdiots their oft-repeated declaration about the dry-dock money. We
have already pointed out that the
controversy over this point is of extremely small importance, becauso
the eleotors do not care n straw
whether the money is actually in
the treasury or not so long us it
will be available when wanted. It
must he said in fairness thut the
provincial secretary has done a great
deal for tha distriot of Westminster, and that hia colleagues aro
adopting the surest means of hindering him from helping his constituency in future.

A ROMANTIC STORY.
It was In tho Spring of '65 that Tom
Vv'iilpporton sat ln the doorway of his
cabin ot Angels Camp, ln Calaveras
county.
Tho winter's work hadn't "panned
out" well for Tom. Ho was ln debt for
three months' supplies at Bloomer's.
Tho genoral merchandise dealer of
Angels Camp was pressing Tom for payment.
" What Bhall I do?" muttered Tom to
himself. "I can't pay Bloomer; the
diggings are not yielding anything.
Dura California! I wish I was baok in
Ohio."
" How d'ye, Tom," said a sweet voioe.
" Is that you, Ell?" inquired tho Impoverished miner,
"Ies, It's me. What makes you look
■oaad,Tom?"  -=:. -',.. ,. .* . «w i
" Well, to toll you the truth, I'm in
trouble."
"What's tho matter?"   •"■•■
" Mine ain't yieldln' nuthln'."
" Oh, I thought some of your kin was
dead.  Dad's claim ain't yieldln' nuthln',
" Well, to tell you the (raft, Tm in trouble."
but we an all happy, though. Sid you
hear the news, Tom?" ..
"Ko. What is it?"
"We've a bran new baby up to our
locaahun." ,
"Havoyour ***
" lea. It wai bom laat night; an'
It's tho lint ohild ever bom tn

"It ain't named yot." '""■ 1
"What Ult; boy orglrl?" j
"If, a boy." ■'■        ' "•)
Ellen Thompson—for suoh WU the
nnme of the possessor of the sweet voloo
-was the pride of Angels Camp In '65.
She was admired by every miner ln the
diggings.
Sho had beautiful dark brown hair,
lustrous eyes, a willowy form and a
warm heart.
Prior to the advent noted above she
hal beon the only ohild of Iiongfelt
Thompson.
Wherever EH, as she was called, went
tho warmth ot her sunshiny nature wag
folt;
Bloomer, the only merchant of Angels,
was a warm friend ot Ell's,
He was a native of Massachusetts,
n closo, sharp trader, and unmarried,
liu wns without sympathy unless lt was
iininocted with a business transaction.'
Ho never allowod a debtor to escape his
vigilance.
It was rumored about- Angols that
lllonmur hod sought the hand and heart
of Ell, and that while she had evadod
tho ollor she had not wholly refused
him.
"Tom, you say your mine ain't
paying?
"Yen"
"Nobody ain't pressin' you, be
thoy?"
" No, notexaotly; but Bloomer feolsa
little uneaay. I owe him a bill for three
months' grub, and he's harassing mo for
the mnnoy."
•' What does Bloomer want of money?
He oln't got no family, an' surely
hoa woll enough olf without tormentln'
you."
" I know he ain't got a family, but
them's a rumor ln the camp that he la
goln' to have one shortly: that he Is
to be married,'.'said Whlpperton gravely.
" Who told you ao?"
"Jim Haskins."
<• Well, that's all Jim knows about lt.
Who would have Bob Bloomer?"
" liepurt says you are goln' to marry
him."
"Mel I guess not. I'd sooner marry
you than him, and I'd sooner marry a
than you,"  laughingly roplicil
" So there oln't no truth in tho roport,
eh?"
" Not a bit, Tom. Do you supposo I'd
marry Bob Bloomor? I guess not if I
know mysolf, ond I think I do."
" Whero you goln' now, Ell?"
I   "I'm goln' up to Bob's."
j   "CanI go with you?"
"No. It might Injure my credit to
have you along, as I wont to got a papor
of pins," replied Ell, good huinoredly.
"Bob," sold Ell, entering Bloomer's
store, " what's tho matter with you?"
"What do you mean, Ell?"
"I heor that you are pressin' Tom
Whlpporton."
"Who told you?"
' "Never mind who told mo.  It's a
ehame, Bob, that a man as rioh as you
are should torment honest old Tom
Is tl business to starve a man!"
Whlpperton when he is ln bad luck an'
ain't got o cent to pay his debts."
" Ell, business ls business."
"Toil talk like a fool. Is it business
to starve a man becauso ho ain't got o
dollar? It may be business, but lt ain't
humanity, Bob Bloomor."
"Woll, now, Ell, what's' tho use of
getting mad about it? Tom Whlpperton
Fs a pretty good kind of man; so is Bob
Bloomor. It's my duty, as a merchant,
to look after my own interests. I can't
trust overy poor mortal thnt comes
along simply becauso I'm pretty woll off.
It's bad enough to bo a merchant, and
get paid for the goods I soil, without the
troublo of doing a credit business, and
not getting a cont for lt."
" Do you moan to toll mo, Bob Bloomer, thnt you won't got a cont from Tom
Whlpporton?" and Ell's bright oyes
shono with additional luster as she
spoko.
" I don't beliovo I'll ovor get a cont
from him."
"Woll, thon, I don't beliovo you'll over
fet ono cont from Long.olt Thompson.
t you wont to bo so menn ns not to
trust Tom for tho nocossorlos of life, I'll
see to lt that my fathor don't pay you
what ho owos. Lot mo have a papor of
pins." . r
" Whoro's your dust to pay for thom?"
- "Hain't got nono."
"Woll, you ean't. hnvo tho pins,
then."
"Woll, I don't want your pins," Indignantly roplicd Ell, as sho loft tho
store.
" Woll, Ell, you can hnva thom," remarked llob, ns ho stood in thu door of
his emporium.
" I don't wnnt 'om. You can tnko
your old pins an' koop 'om."
" Well, I doolaro I * muttered Bob to
himself, as Ell passed from his viow,
"I'll be hanged if that ain't tho queerest
girl I over saw. To think that eho would
take tho part of worthless Tom Whlpperton, who owes mo ovor four hundred dollars for stuff I've let him havo, ond for
whioh I oan't got a cont. I hoar thoy
had a newcomer up nt Thompson's lost
night. I don't soo why thoy want moro
children when they can't properly sup*
port Ell. It bents all creation whnt
style thot girl puts on; but for nll thnt I
like her; I did onco think thnt I'd marry
her; but it sho woro my wife sho'd mako
me a pauper ln n month."
Thus reasoned tlio Angols Camp merchant ; and so reasoning ho turned
to his crude systom of book-kcoping, nnd
hunted up Iiongfelt Thompson's nccount.
" Eight hundred dollan!" exclaimed
tho merchant. " Owe mo eight hundred
dollars! Impossible! Why, that will
take all my proflts for the year! and all
on account of that girl I If thut ain't
buying a wife at a pretty high figure I

(-UXXCX-CT-D.)
N THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1187,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
uf Now Westminster, to be known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Viotoria and Vancouver. The objeot of
tho new company is to continue the pub-
lication of the British Columbus news*
psper and canyon a lenertl printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest it will be
to promote the development, esjMcially
of the Mainland. There will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in tbe management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving fnll value for their money.
The Colombia" irill oontlnue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, aod will devote Itself
to the advancement ot uch scheme, aa
may be considered In the publio Interest.
The concern Is now entirely sepante from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment ia this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. R.
Pearson, who will continue to cany It on
in his own name and for hia own benefit.
It Is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained In this city, and
the new company asks tor public patronage on the ground that It is mgaged ll
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It aaka that tht Columbian be judged on Its own merits and

The Richmond Loan.
Editor Columbian: In tho list
issue of your weekly ippeart a copy
of a by-law patted by the oounoil of
Riohmond for railing a loan of 990,-
000 for tho purpotei therein set forth,
followed by a notice that a vote of the
olecton of the.aaid municipality will
bo taken on the stmt on the Oth of
next month, and I request you to allow mo to draw tht attention of the
eleoton to a few pointi (the most Important of which are not tat forth in
the by-law) that ought to be fully considered by them bofore outing their
votes on the proposed by-law.
The by-law state, that tlO.OOO shall
be at the diipoul of tho oounoil for
the purpose of building bridgea aa provided therein. Thii, I believe, ii
(4,000 leu than the estimate of the
fovornment engineer bind on data
urniihed by Mr. Turner'i lurvey,
and whioh I think it the only estimate
made by an engineer of tho propoud
bridges. Why the council has put
only 116,000 of the propoud loan
down for the bridgw when the estimate calli for 120,000, hu not, u far
is I know, been made known to the
eleoton. If tho eleoton decide that
these bridges Ahall be built—whioh a
confirmation of this by-law by them
really meant—would it not bt better
that more than sufficient ihould ba at
the disposal of tho council for that
purpon than that tha work ihould be
postponed on account of lack of fundi!
Perhaps the promottnof thii bridgo
scheme in tnd out of the counoil
thought that any less thin $14,000,
generously proposed to be spent in the
two warda on Lulu Island, would not
be sufficient bait to catch tho lukewarm friends in thut wards of thii
bridge scheme to vote for the by-law.
Thit may nol be the reuon, howover,
for outting down tho estimate of the
government engineer.
What I propose to point out particularly ii the burden that the construction of these bridgw wonld plaoe on
the corporation. The by-law statei
that the amount ot tht auenment roll
for lut year ii 1338,670. Tha rata on
thi. to.niiereMaue for genital pur-
pout for'tast-yeaf %tt time-fourths or
uvtn and a half tentht of one per
ean»n..wWeh,milttethetax"tiiied on
real MtetHtlTMy** nearW-as mnoh
ai the bylaw statu ie nquind to pay
the interest and linking fttlfd on the
propoud loan, and nearly 1120 mora
than the ipyoial rate fixed by the proposed by-law would nin on the present luettmant.
It ii evident, therefore, that the
propoud loan will more thin doubli
our present tax on real ettate in order
to leave aa muoh for general purposes
ti wo had lut ten.
Now, there haa never been, to my
knowledge at lent, a ttitement founded on good authority mado to the
eleoton of how much it will cost to
maintain tho proposed bridges after
they an built, and thia appears to ma
the mint important point for the rate
payen to consider. How often would
theu bridgei have to ba rebuilt on
account of usual wear and decay, and
what ii the riik, arising from ether
causes, of having to rebuild them!
These are questions that ahould have
been answered on good authority before uking the eleoton to vote on thii
by-law, I believe (and 1 have tome
authority for.my belief) that not leu
than ten ptr ctnt. ptr annum on the
fint coit of mch itructum is allowed
to maintain thtm when there it no
riik other thin uiual wear and decay.
Now, what percentage ought te be let
down against lht chance of the lea
tearing them out or the water wuhing
thtm out of tht quickund on whieh
they havo to be built) Bhould there
be leu tbin five percent.) From
what I have uen and hurd ot wharvea
and tuch itructurei on the rivor, I
think not leu. Assuming tht government engineer's estimito to be correct
(and I think it not ufa for the elect-
on to . assume thit leu will build
them) the fint cott of the bridgei
will be (20,000. Ten per cent on
thii for ordinary maintenance and five
per cant, for min, mikt 18,000 per
annum. Add to thit the oott of operating the draws, whioh cannot' be put
down at leu than $600 per year, and
you have a yearly expense uf (3,600.
Thii added to $1,800 required u tilted in the by-law makM 16,400 to be
raised over and above oar present revenue, I have ahown above that our
taxu on real ettate would be twice
what they ate now in order to pay
(1,800 per year, and it it plain that to
pay (6i400 they would have to be four
timn what they are now so aa to lesvo
for ordinary purposu the une amount
that Wa had hit year.
It may apptar preiumption on my
part to auggwt that a leu expensive
means might be devised to meet the
requirement! of tho people for a few
yean. Portland, Ortgon, I le.ro, In.
only a ferry aertn tbeWilliamtttt,.ud
1 oould mention placet in California
where ferriei tre used and where It
would out leu to build bridgei and
maintain than than thut propoted for
ui, and where there il tin timet mure
travel and transport thin we oan ax*
feet on thau for yun to noma. And
urther, in view of the rapid growth
of Vanoonvar to the north of ua, and
the construction of a railway, with
Ladner's Landing u a terminus, to the
louth of ui, neoeultating cooneotlon
by ferry aorou tbe iduth arm with ui,
and through bur municipality with
Vanoouver, it ia mon than likely that
influence enough could be brought in
a few yean to induce the provincial
government to build one of these
bridges at least. Then tbe other
might ba ufely undertaken by thit
corporation.
