Chilliwhack, June 11.—The name of
Chilliwhack should be eternally inscribed on the banners of freedom and fame.
Last night the honest electors rose above
party, threw off the shackles that bound
thom to ono man power, and rose in the
glory of their manhood for freedom's
cause, liberty of speech and fair play.
The thing was done spontaneously, without premeditation, and came from tlie
hearts of two hundred men inspired with
thai glorious attribute of all Britishers—
the lovo of fair play. Westminster and
Vancouver wero treated in a similar
way, but it remained for Chilliwhack to
place on record n more determined and
pointed mark of dissent than any of
thom.
The meeting took place in Henderson's Hall, commencing a few minutes
befpre seven o'clock, ft was understood
among, the Government partv before it
commenced that the Hon. John Robson
would occupy the most of the time un-
til 8:30 o'clock, when tho Oddfellows
were to havo the hall to hold their regular meeting. This, of course, would
shut off all reply. It was proposed to
have the meeting in the agricultural
building, but that would not suit their
purposes, nnd the original plan was
not carried out. At least 200 electors
were present, and about a dozen ladies.
Mr. A. C. Wells was elected to the
chair, aud after bespeaking a patient
hearing, introduced the orator of the
evening.
Hon. Mi*. Robson, on coming forward,
wns received quietly. He lirst returned
thanks to tho Indies for their attendance, nnd made the remarks concerning
the disfranchisement of women which
he has repeated at all his meetings which
have beeu favored with tho presence of
the. fair sex. He had "come out
on the requisition of a large number of the electors of Chilliwack,
but ho understood that a number signed
tlie paper for the purpose of getting him
out to defeat him—kick him out, in
fact. If nny of the men were present he
would like to have them stand up and
acknowledge to their guilt of such ah
unfair and unmanly action.
Mr. McBride rose and said he was one
of them (sensation), and he was not
ashamed of what he had done. Mr.
Robson failed in so many of his promises that it was time he had a lesson.
Mr. Robson—You ought to be
ashamed of acknowledging it. Perhaps
there are some others ncre who have
signed it; if so, let them stand up.
(After a pause.) Welt, I am glad there
is only ono black sheep in the flock.
Mr. MeUee rose and said he had not
seen the paper, but would have signed
it also to defeat him had he the opportunity, making another "block sheep."
His reason was because Mr. Robson had
promised to lay aside the proceeds from
the sate of 45,000 acres of Sumas lands,
for reclamation purposes, but failed to
keep his word. ■
Mr. Robson denied that lie had ever
given the promise, for the reason that
he was not in a position to do so, No
minister of tho Crown could make such
a. promise. He had said he would endeavor to get back the land from the
Dominion Government nnd put tho proceeds to reclamation purposes. That
was it. (A voice, No.) He sincerely
hoped that in the near future the Government would be ablo to put forward a
large and comprehensive scheme for reclaiming the overflowed lands—not t
$45,000 scheme, but one involving a
much larger sum. (Applause.) The
policy of the Government would be to
meet . any practicable and feasible
scheme to advance any reclamation project, by loaning money to municipalities
at a low rate of interest. He had given
orders to have the trunk road between
Chilliwack and Popcum put in good
condition, and to build a bridge across
Vedder Creek..
An elector—Election dodges again.
Mr. Calhoun—Tho rond round Little
Mountain is a disgrace to any country.
Mr. Robson—Well, we're going to
mend it. It is hard and expensive work
making roads in this country. They
cannot all be done at once. Continuing,
Hon. Mr. Robson said he wished to refer to a paragraph in The Columbian relating to his speech at Brownsville,
which mado him say that even if elected
himself he would be forced to say ''Goodbye" unless a "solid" Government ticket was elected with him. What ho said,
was: That unless two colleagues, not
straight Government men, were sent to
assist him, he would have to say "Goodbye." ' (CrieB of "Cariboo.") It wns
idle to send down two men to oppose
him in his work for the District. (Applause). Mr, Robson then turned on
the News-Advertiser and Mr. Cotton of
Vancouver, and gave them a raking
down for something Mr. Cotton had
said. Tho subject waa new to the audience nnd his remarks fell very flat.
He then touched on the Redistribution
measure and repeated the usual arguments to show that the Government was
pledged. During tho course of his remarks on this question The Columbian
came in for another onslaught. He
said the question put by Mr. Maxwell
at Langley it few days ago to
the candidates, asking their opinion
of the sincerity of the Government, was
ridiculous and wanted to know who
ever heard of such a question. He appealed to the audience to support the
Government until it went back on their
pledges, and then turn It out if it did
not redeem thom. He did not want
slavish supporters, but Independent
men who would support him. He then
called attention to nn article in Tub
Columbian entitled "Vote on the Winning Side," and ridiculed the idea of
that paper having any knowledge on the
subject of how the elections would go-
He claimed to have better Information
on the subject than any one else, and
said 22 Government supporters would be
returned against 11 Independents and
Oppositionists. He then tried to explain that no man could be an Independent, but was bound to become an out
and out supporter of either of the parties. Mr. Robson went into figures to
show how much more the present Government had done for the country than
had the Beaven Government, and concluded by asking re-election. He was
only .human; he had done his best for
the district, but was hampered by having two colleagues in opposition to him.
Mr. Kitchen asked Mr. Robson If one
of his colleagues, Mr. Ladner, had not
voted with tlie Government on all good
measures brought before the House.
Mr. Robaon admitted that Mr, Ladner
had done so, but remarked that Mr.
Ladner had latterly been leaning toward
the Government side-
Mr. McGillivray then asked Hon. Mr.
Robson a number of questions on the
redistribution measure, and on tho sincerity of the Government's pledge, alt of
whfch the honorablo gentleman attempted to fence off. but with tittle satisfaction to-the audience.   Mr. McGilli
vray then pointed out that even the
Government papers on the Island did
not believe that there would be a redistribution measure giving the Mainland
the preponderance of voten justly due to
Hon. Mr. Robson 'rose and said
angrily: "I don't understand why the
Government should be carped at in this
manner."
Mr. Kitchen asked if Mr. Robson had
anything to prove that he had ever intended keeping hiB promise regarding
the 45,000 acres.
Mr. Robson declared this question
was all nonsense, as he had never made
any promise.
Mr. Kitchen then asked Mr. Robson
on what conditions he had got all the
land in the railway belt back from tlte
Dominion Government.
Mr. Robson would give no answer to
the question, saying it would take too
long, and the Oddfellows were waiting
for tlie hall.
Mr. Kitchen tried to force a direct
answer, but Mr. Hobson evaded the
question aud would not reply.
Mr. Kitchen then took tlie platform
and was received with much enthusiasm. He came sb on Independent, and
as It seemed Mr. Robson wanted Inde-
|«.mtciit mm lit,   cottU   ivlj un    fiu.lii£
the support of any of the eight candidates in the Held In any just measure.
A hearty support to any good measure
he would always give, but never n
slavish following to any party. (Great
applause). But it looked as if Mr.
Robson was afraid of opposition.
(Applause). Mr. Robson had. denied
iromising tlie proceeds of tbe
15,000 acres for reclamation purposes.
If the people of Chilliwack were satisfied with that denial he would say no
more on the question (cries of "No,
no."). Mr, Henderson had boasted that
he had information as to the Government's plans on certain rood work, but
the Municipal Council, the people's representatives, had been able to get no
satisfaction from the Government on
these matters. He considered the Vedder Creek bridge purely au election
dodge (great applause). Men were going
all over the District laying out plans for
roods and bridges just before the election to catch votes (cries of "Election
dodges," "Cariboo," etc.). Mr. Robson
had endeavored to bring Mr. Cotton, of
Vancouver, into ridicule before tlie people, but he thought the Chilliwack men
wanted to hear nothing of it; it had
nothing to do with the case (cries of
"Hear, hear"). He hod no confidence
in the Government's pledge, because
they had given him no cause to believe
it, owing to the many promises made
and broken in Chilliwack hy the Government [applause]. Mr. Robson said
there could be no third party, but a
strong third party flourished in the
British House of Commons.
An Elector—Sam Greer Ib the third
party.   (Great laughter).
At this point Mr. Robson rose and objected to Mr. Kitchen making a speech.
He claimed he should only be allowed
to ask questions. The hall wob wanted
by the Oddfellows.
Hardly had theso words passed Mr.
Robson's lips than tho curtain on the
stage was dropped, putting a sudden end
to the meeting. In an instant nearly
the whole audience rose to its feet, every
face flushed with indignation at the
barefaced attempt to forcibly prevent
free speech. Cheer after cheer went up
for Mr. Kitchen, and the large room
echoed with crieB of "Liberty," "Free
seh," "Cariboo," "Police," "Coward," "Kitchen," etc. The scene was
indescribable. It was the spontaneous
expression of two hundred freemen in
the cause of libeity of speech and fair
play. Never was such a scene witnessed in Chilli whack, mid highly do the
people of that place deserve to
be honored for their noble stand.
Men who were opposed to Mr.
Kitchen only five minutes before rushed forward and promised hiin their
warmest support, and even old time
enemies came forward and were reconciled.
Outside the hall excited groups gathered and discussed the matter, and on
all sides the attempt to put down Mr.
Kitchen Vas decried. Mr. Bradshawe,
one of the Oddfellows [on whose shoulders the effort to place the blame was
made] tore off his official collar and
promised never to put it on again until
the atigma was removed. Even the
Government's warmest supporters acknowledged that the imprudent opposition to Mr. Kitchen's speaking haa done
more to injure their cause than all the
promises made and broken in the last
tour years. It was a complete Government rout, and a glorious victory for
Mr. Kitchen and his cause. The people
of Chilliwack proved themselves worthy
of the name of Freemen. Well done
Chilliwack!

business is destroyed by law. They

CORRESPONDENCE.
POLITICAL FREAKS.
Editor Columbian—Str, It Ib getting
to be very evident that the Hon. John
Robson is in a very tight place. His
mouthpiece Truth is making desperate
efforts to have Henderson elected, and
Henderson from all that is known of
him, by his own chameleon political
tricks, would just be the sort of a man
to suit the purposes of such a Government as B, C. has heen humbugged with
for some time. If all that, has been
said and done by the present party in
power, and its fawning favorites and
toadies throughout the District, were
written in a book It would be very interesting.,
A good story is told of one of the candidates who would no doubt support any
party for the honor of the thing. He
called nt a farm house at Chilliwhack,
and enquired of the good lady of the
house where the husband was. She replied that he wub attending to his crops,
and enquired the visitor's business. He
aaid ho had no particular business, but
was in the habit of killing two birds
with one stone. She told him that such
a man ought to be in the museum as a
curiosity, and to be gone at once.
If the good people of this District
would only elect Henderson and this
other candidate who kills "two birds
with one stone" the Govermnant would
be obliged to add another wing to the
museum at James Bay for their safe
keeping, ond whon their votes were
needed the sergeant-at-arms could lead
them out for that purpose.
Hon. John Robson has told the electors of this District that all he wonts ii
Voting Machines, he can pull the wires
nnd the puppets can dance. He has intimated that if tho people give him such
obedient tools he will help to build the
Bridge, so he will, nud so he will.

A Notorious Smuggling Craft Seized by
Cuitoini Authorities — The Contraband Buitnesi Very Brlak altheCapl-
l From  Oar Own Correspondent.)
Victoria, June 11.—The notorious
smuggling craft, "North Star," i
seized by Inspector Young upon several
chaiges of infringements of the customs
laws. . Among the charges are, carrying passengers without license, return'
ing to port without going to port she
cleared for and bringing contraband
goods Into Canada. It is said she has
been doing a big business carrying
Chinese and opium to the American
side and then bringing return cargoes of
goods to this port. Smuggling is very
active at present and her seizure will
be a bad blow to the contrabandists.
She is owned by Frederick Jones and
Angel Koffee, her registered tonnage is
5)6 tons gross, 8 tons net. Tier
length Is 40 feet, beam 8 feet;
depth of hold, 3 feet, 0 inches. She is a

OTTAWA NOTES.
l.a Hourgogne Hreahi Down.
Nkw York, June 10.—Pilot David Ni-
collay, who arrived here this morning
on board the North German Lloyd s. s.
Werra, reports that Sunday morning in
latitude 40.43, long. 60, he spoke the
French steamer La Bourgognc which
had been lying to since Saturday midnight. The captain of the French liner,
when spoken to by Captain Njcollay,
said he did not need assistance and he
was making the necessary repairs to his
vessel and would proceed on his voyage
to Havre. The tug Pulver which went
out yesterday to find the steamer, returned thiB morning after n fruitless
search for her.
Great Expectation...
Washington, June 10.—Presidont
Scott, of the UnjoiT Iron Works, of San
Francisco, who is iu tho city, is very enthusiastic about the new steel cruiser,
San Francisco, which is just being finished at the Union Iron works. He expects her to be superior in speed to any
cruiser yet built in America, and he
would not be surprised if, at her trial,
she should surpass the Spanish cruiser,
Renin Regente, or the still faster Italian
vessel, thePiomente.
The Curloui Case of Cowles.
Montrkal, June 10.—Mrs. Cowles appeared In court this morning accompanied by her daughter Florence. A letter wns produced which
Cowles wrote renouncing alt claims to
the child and au order from him to tho
nuns authorizing them to deliver her up.
ThiB was regarded as concluding tho
cose, and Mrs. Cowles was given the
custody of her daughter. Cowles'. condition had not improved to-day aud the
wound may result fatally. A commission of physicians was appointed to examine Cowles to-morrow to ascertain i(
he Ib in a fit condition to come into
court. If bo the caso of Hale will at
once go to the grand jury, and if a bill
be found against him he will be tried at
once. None of the party will leave

THE   DISTRICT  ELECTION.
Editor Columbian—Sir—The electors
of this district must bear in mind that
the present Government—or Mr. Robson—haB been in power for the lost
eight years, and so far as this district hj
concerned has not conferred a single
benefit upon it that would not have
been received under any other Government. That, on the contrary, he (Mr.
Robson) has made many promises to
concede assistance that we had every
right to demand, and that such promises have been broken. It is now our
bounden duty, to ourselves and our
neighbors, to voto for new men who are
in no wise bound to Mr. Robson, and
who will, while acting for the good of
the Province generally, maintain the Interests of this district in particular.
These men, by a happy coincidence,
we have found in Mr. Punch, from
Surrey, Mr. Sword, from Matsqui, and
Mr. Kitchen, from Chilliwack, three
good, honest and reliable men, unambitious for office and above the possibility
of being bribed.
Any voter in the district who cannot
vote for two, if not the whole of three
men, must be influenced by corruption,
favoritism, or paltry self interest. It
cannot be pretended that in voting
against them, he is only exercising his
inalienable right of a treo citizen; because, without prejudice, he could not
find better representatives than the
three candidates above named, and to
vote against them will be to inflict a
real injury upon the district and delay
improvements indefinitely.
But the injury will extend still further, inasmuch as the return of Independent members, sufficient to control
tho Government, will relieve the whole
Province from a terrible nightmare that
hns weighed upon its energy for the last
eight years. It has causetf this Province
to be given over to monopolies, its
lauds, mines and timber to capitalists,
its railway privileges to speculators, and
its best interests overlooked from negligence or design.
It is the duty, therefore, ef every
elector in this dwrict to record his vote
for Messrs, Punch, Sword and Kitchen,
iu order to protect his own interest and
that of every citizen of this Province.

INDIRECT BUT   ESSENTIA!,   BRIBERY.
Tin: infamous enginery of promises
and threats is being worked for nil it is
north in tho Provincial elections in this
City and District, at least, by the Government, as represented by the Premier,
and by the Government hirelings and
hangers-on. In this' City tho moBt
strenuous efforts nro being used to defent
the People's candidate. The air is fairly
reeking with promises and pledges, of *
private as well as a public nature, and
just behind this tissue of emergency
falsehoods rumbles ever and anon the
stage thunder of tlio Governmental interdict, as a warning to those who will
not receivo tho promises to beware of
the vengeance.
Elect the man, or the men, ns the case
may be, says tho Premier (who has been
amongst us for the last week or so}
' to tho electors, whom I wish you to, and
all will be woll; you Bhall be favored individually and collectively; tho fattest
things that I can get for you, you shall
have; those things which you should
have had long ago shall be yours very
shortly; you shall have your rights,and
more too.
But (and the mock thunders belch
and rattle behind the gauze), refuse to
hear and heed me; fail to elect the man
or men whom I point out—whom I can
work with; return an Independent man,
or Independent men*—be they ever so
superior in ability and integrity to my
particular creatures—and expect nothing from ine, individually or collectively, but political excommunication;
your representatives shall be put In a
draughty corner of the House; they shall
not be admitted into the sacred (?)
caucus; your appropriations shall be
cut of; your public works shall languish ; you shall by no means get your
rights, but these shall be taken from
you and heaped upon the "faithful."
The above is no exaggeration of the
tnctics'that are being used in adesperate
but vain endeavor to elect the
"struight" Government candidate in
this city, and in the District the same
unblushing methods are pursued, but
pcrhapB more glaringly, ns one instance
will suffice to show. It is well known
that for the lust few weeks Government
road inspectors have been scouring
tho District, ascertaining the wants and
desires of the different settlements with
respect to roads, bridges, etc.,with u view
to having these met right away, so as to
put the electors in good humor with the
Administration on the eve of the elections. Of course, all this Muffing of the
maternal feathers will quiet down after
polling dny, nud the cheated chicks will
pipe in vain out in the cold and
rain, but tho preliminary clucking,
it is doubtless expected, will
have had the desired effect.
In the Matsqui settlement, wc are informed on undoubted authority, the
Government "cappers" have, within the
last day or two, put u large number of
settlers to work, by dny labor, on public
roads in thnt vicinity. Matsqui is understood to be a very "shaky" section
for the Government, and so this shameless method of enslaving the voters is
resorted to just before election day.
Such infamous tactics arc a direct insult to the electorate us well as
a terrible commentary on the
state of the public morality of tho
country. We trust that, for the
credit ot the electorate and of tho Province, the people will rise iu their might
ns one man and register at tho polls
their most withering contempt for such
unworthy and unblushing attempts to
force the electors to enslave themselves.
Let the electors of Westminster District, ns those of this City and of Vancouver intend doing, cast their votes ou
Friday next, tho 13th inst., without fear
favor or affection, for their rights—
for fair play and equal justice
to all parts of the Province — for
good legislation and purity of administration—and against petty tyranny, corruption, nud maladministration, and all
that is base and unworthy in the politics of both the present political parties.
In other words—

In the ease of Bryce, oVmmercial

Deep Sea Flatting.
It bits always been calculated that in
time the deep-sea fisheries of British Columbia would become an important factor in the commerce and growth of the
Province, nnd in particular, of her chief
railway and commercial centre, Vancouver. This calculation, we are pleased
to note, is beginning to be realized.
Recently a Btrong company was formed
here, composed of some of the leading
business men, and capitalists in Toronto
and Montreal. The company is incorporated, with a capital stock of $50,000,
and arrangements nave been made to
Jutsh the trade all along tbe line of the
}. P. R, as far east as Montreal, and
also taking iu the cities of St. Paul and
Chicago. The leading spirit in organizing the enterprise in Vancouver has
been Mr. Johnston, of Johnston, Ker-
foot A Co., who was assisted by Mr.
Folev, a practical fisherman from New
Brunswick, nud Mr. York, a local fish
dealer. The company intend to deal
largely in fresh halibut, and aro greatly encouraged with the result of a trip

A City Man'.. Return to the Scenes of His
Childhood.
It was a hot, cloudless day in August.
A gentle breeze was stirring, and, sit*
ting on tho littlo back porch of the old
Carm-lionm. and looking across a vista of
yellow stubble-fields to tbo dark lino of
woods, nearly half ami'o away, I could
seo the tops of tlie tallest trees swaying
gently, and could almost, I fancied, boar
tho faint rustling of their loaves, of the
music of which I havo ever, sinco a
child, boon over-fond, writes Ed It.
Pritchard, in tbo Arkansaw Traveler.
It had been threo years since I had
visited the old farm, tbrco long years of
. toil at the desk, amid tho noise and busy
strifo of a great metropolis, and this was
ray first day of a short week's vacation
at tho old home, among tbe friends of
my boyhood days and the scenes of the
happiest you i'.s of my life.
I bad readied tho farm about ten
o'clock in the morning, and. after a
bounteous dinner at noon, was sitting
on tlio porch, tlio, coolest place, as I well
knew, about the bouse, toasting my oyes
- on tho dour old landscape that 1 had
known so long, and which, during all tho
years that I hud been away from it, was
always a charming picture that, though
paradoxical It may sound, I had only to
shut my oyefl to seo at will.
1 must got to thoso woods, and that at
once. No matter tbat tho afternoon
Augustsim wnssondingdown his fiercest
rays, no matter Umt I must walk half a
mile aci-ohs uttibblo-iloldH, which, from
whoro I mil, I could seo wore almost
quivering with boat, I know what sweet,
familiar sounds I shall hoar, what a i'o-
froshingcoolnoss und quiet I shall find
when I have readied thoir green and
shady depths. Even whilo I am thinking of theso things, u solitary crow wltb
a loud "oaw! oaw!" flies swiftly ovor tho
stubblc-flolds, high in air, and lighting on tho top of a hugo oak sends forth
a uerios of exultant "caws!" to his mates
whom he has left in tho orchard back of
the born. To mo he seems tosay to thorn:
"Thore are no hens' nests in that old
straw-staok. Why stay over thero in that
hot, broiling sun? Come over horo
into theso grand old woods. Hard by
Is iho creek, and I know a dark and
shady pool whoro wo can bathe, and below it a shining, singing ripplo, whero
wo can wade and play to our hearts' content."
Evidently, they understood tbo meaning of his cries, for a momont later a
bevy of the black and saucy rascals go
scurrying across tho fields and join him,
whero they all set up a perfect chorus
of "caws!" which I tako to bo expressions of approval of their companion's
suggestion.
Hastily divesting myself of eoat and
vest, for in the country it is no broach
of otiquecto "to go in your shirt
sleeves," I step into tho hall and tako
from the rack a wide-brimmed straw
hat, and after a brief stop at the old
spring-house at the foot of tbe hill, I am
oil, as tbo crows fly, across fields for
tbe woods.
On reaching them I find I am sweating profusely. What? You say sweating is vulgar, I should say perspirincr?
Woll, no matter; I know I am boated
and flushed, but I novor folt bettor.
The air is pure and sweet, the birds aro
singing in tho woods on tho borders of
tho little stream, and now us I pause to
mop my dripping faco 1 hear a woodpecker boating his lively tattoo on an
old beech stub and chirp, chirp comes
from a saucy little ground squirrel us
he streaks it like a flash of russot light
along the rails of tho old fence near
which I am standing. I shy a rouk at
him, out of pure wantonness, and am
murderous enough to wish I had a gun
with which to tako a craok at that wily
old wood-pecker, who hus, on catching
sight of mo, slyly slipped around to iho
other sido ot tlio old beech stub, where
I can still hoar him pecking away as
busy as a nailer.
I hastily scramble ovor tho fence, and
five minutes later I stand under tho
thick shade of the wide-spreading
branches of a grand old beech tree
and on the edge of a steep blull', at
whoso base runs tho turbulent but romantic Little Wild-Cat creek. I throw
myself down ou tbo grass, which is horo
so luxuriant tbat it is softer than tho
heaviest carpet, and there I lio for half
an hour idly listening to the soft and
indescribable music of the waters below. Thisn, having cooled off, I go
down to tho water's edge and deliberately disrobe and—"go in swimmin1."
Mind, I don't say bathing, for I had no
bathing suit. I just did as wo boys used
to do years ago—"just stripped off and
went in swimmin'." You Bee, thoro was
nobody there to look except, tho birds
and the squirrels and an old black-
water snako which I caught sunning
himself out on a rook at tho water's
edge, and which I ruthlessly killed with
a club.
How I did enjoy tbat swim, that frolic
all by myself in the water! Tired of
that, I continued my stroll until a coolness ot the air and rapidly-deepening
' shadows warned mo that it was time to
turn my faco homeward.
When I reached the house I mado a
discovery, and that was that whilo in
swimming 1 had done just as I had
often done beforo whon a boy—had sunburned both shoulders into blisters, ono
' on each tho size of my hand,  Thon,
[ too, as in days long agone, a liberal ap-
\ plication of swcot eream was given and
[ 1 went to hod with the chickens, was up
, with . the birds and tho next day was
1 able to go squirrel-hunting and had a
t glorious timo.   But of all my brlof va-
, cation days I shall not soon forget, that
afternoon's ramblo in the woods.
THE COURTEOUS SWEDES.
Poluts Which Attract the  Attention  of
Travelers In dear's Kingdom.
The beautiful politeness and courtesy
of the Swedes is a thing that is very
striking to visitors, writes a contributor
toTomploBar. They have a large assortment of bows, bobs, courtesies and
hat-liftings, according to age and sex,
but the lifting of the hat to mere acquaintances reaches, I fancy, much
lower down in tho social scale than elsewhere in Europe; it looks odd to see the
butcher-boy in a blouse elaborately
taking oS his hat to the baker's assistant. I suspect, on examination, Swedish bats would be found to contain a little extra stiffening, in order to enable
them to stand the wear and tear of
these greetings in the market-places.
On one occasion, when going hy
steamboat to Upsala, I noticed a very
quaint example of this National trait.
Tho steamboat, -as it nears Upsala,
pusses through many shallow reaches of
tho Malar lake, where tho depth of
water is insufficient to allow of the passengers being landed in the ordinary
manner directly on to landing stages,
and so have to bo takon on shore in
small boats. Tho ferryman on shipping
his complement of passengers would
first tako a dozen strokes or so in order
to clear tho screw of tho steamor, and
thon would carof til ly lay aside bis oars,
rise from his scat, and take off his hat
with a solemn bow to the people sitting
in tho stem whom ho had just taken off
the deck of tho steamer, llo would
■thou row on again and put them ashore.
This did not occur ns an isolated instance, but regularly every timo tbe
passengers bad to ho landed by photo-
boats.
Tho women of tho iniddlo and lower
classes nro littlo if at all behind their
husbands and bruihora In this innitei-
Their good temper and pretty behavior
t;"o worthy of all praiso. The servant
girls in Dnlecurlian poamint dress, tho
cafe-mamseUes and tho young persons
employed in shops all make the prettiest of all possiblo little bob courtesies,
and so, oddly enough, do the young ladles of good family up to the day ot
their confirmation, which ceremony
takes placo rathor later than with us,
generally about the age of sixteen.
From that day forth they put their hair
up and take to bowing,
Tho Upsala students amuse ono a
good dojl by tho elaboration and eero-
inonlousnoss of tholr manners. Any
day during tho Vacation a fow of ihem
may be seen gathered around a table In
tbo gurdon cafes of Hasselbackon or
Tivoli, drinking thoir punch. They are
mostly lads undor twenty, but they bow
to eacli othor, und make little civil
speeches, and pledge oach'other with
solemn salutation, all according to the
strictest Swedish otiquotte, as if they
woro middle-aged gentlemen of high
dignity and position but slightly acquainted with ono another. They certainly take themselves vory seriously.
Tho custom of pledging or health-
drinking is a survival from very ancient
times. Tho glass is raised, a slight bow
made, tho word skal (literally bow)
pronounoed, followed by another slight
how, whon lho glass is replaced on tho
table, generally empty; it is not de
r;g"enr, however, that it should bo so,
but in Denmark, whero a similar custom obtains, tho glass must always bo
drained to tho last drop. To English
eyes it appears quaint to see this complicated ceremonial observod toward
each other by college companions not
yet out of their teens.
Another point which soon attracts tho
attention of visitors is the punctilious
honesty and truthfulness of the Swedes;
thia is best soon in tho many littlo incident:, of dully lifo. When asking tor
places at tho theater, for instuneo, the
ticket clerk never fails to inform you if,-
owing to tho crowded stato of the houso,
a bettor position would be socurod with
a cheaper ticket than tho one asked
for. Again, when parcels are taken
out by steamers from Stockholm
to country places in the neighborhood thoy aro just thrown out on
to the quay, whoro thoy frequently remain half the day without being claimed.
It never soerns to occur lo any ono that
they could possibly bo taken by any ono
but their rightful owners. On a trip of
uny length, as for instance to Gothenburg by canal, a little book lies In the
saloon of tbo steamor in whtch each passenger keeps bis own account of the
number ot meals, cafes, cognacs, etc.,
he may tako during the journey. But,
indeed, it is impossible to talk to a
Swedo for any length of time and not
seo how incapable of any meanness or
dishonesty he must be. Thoro is nearly
always a simplicity and straightforwardness of, manner the vory antipodes of
affectation, which is certainly a very
pleasing attribute; and which can
scarcoly fail to convince tho least observant person, that he bas before him
a man who thoroughly respects himself,
and who walks very steadfastly on the
straight line. Tho Swedes, you feel,
are a nation of gontlomon down to the
coal-heavers and the wharf-men,

"I struck tho hardest gamo of my lifo

THE   DOCTOR'S  WIFE.
At lh»* Mercy or lho <.ra.t-ti.de of Her
II tin bund's 1'nUmits. <
"Most persons suffer occasionally from
the kindness of tholr friends," said a
physician's wife to the Now York Evening Sun's Woman About Town, "but the
person who really needs to pray to be
saved from it Is a doctor's wife. She is
so at the meroy of tho gratitude of her
husband's patients, and tbat gratitude
doeo tako such grotesque ways of demonstrating Itself. My earliest and
hardest oxporionco as a viotim in this
way occurred when we were first married. Wo wero settlod tn a small town
and bad just fitted up tho dearest little
cottage homo you ever saw, into evory
dotail ot whioh—In coloring, draping
aud furnishing—I had put my wholo
soul and whatever artistic Instinct I had
boon endowed with.
"Ono ot tho first persons to call on us
in our now home wasapatlontof my
husband, a rich and disagreeable and
hideously ugly old woman, who imagined herself to be the victim of every
disease sho could hoar of, and who was,
in conBcquonoe, tho source ot a good
round Income to us.
'Whon she rose to leave she said,
looking about my little parlors: 'My
dear, your rooms are charming, hut I
nco ono thing thoy need, and I shall have
thut mado for you at once.' We were in
a stato of delighted anticipation from
that timo on, an anticipation stimulated
from time to timo by hints ot our benefactor. 'It will cost a great deal of
money,'she would say, 'but it will bo
worth it, I am sure.'
"Ono day ltcame, a great flat package,
whtch wo opened ns quickly as wu could,
There, sot In u huge gilt frame, dono In
tho brightest possiblo oils, was a lifo-
slzo portrait of tho old woman, that was,
if possible, an exaggeration In ugliness
of what naturo had done for her. It was
tho work of a local artist, and was just
th'j most unspeakably hideous product
of paint and inability that I ever saw.
"In fivo minutes after the arrival of
tbe portrait eamo the wheezing original
to superintend Its hanging, and nowhere
in tbo room oould It go but in the conspicuous pliice whore my most oherlshod
etching hung. There was no help for it.
We couldn't afford to alienate tbe affections of a thousand a year, and up lt
wont. It staid thoro five years to spoil
my pretty parlor and bias ray torapor,
and tho ilrst thing-1 did after tbe old
sofil died and wns decently lntorred was
to cub tho canvas to littlo bits and uso
tho frame for kindling."

A LKTTKK TO  THE EI/ECTOltB.
Gentlemen :—He who asks me to vole
for a supporter of the present Government insults me, for I think that any
ono in this city who supports the party
that perpetrated the late outrage in the
matter of our parliamentary representation, iB not fit to bo enfranchised; he
has the soul of a crouching slave, not
the spirit of a freeman. In this nineteenth contury, only madmen and tyrants speak lightly of or trifle with this
matter. I am, therofore, not at all astonished at the furious indignation that
was excited.in Vancouver when the man
that dared to bring forth such aineasuro
showed hiB faco in that city. Many of
its inhabitants camo from parts of the
world whero the peoplo are so jealous
of their rights that a similar legislative
enactment would produce scenes of riot
and bloodshed. This nefarious Redistribution Act involves the principle of
taxation without proper representation
—a principle which caused that cruel,
unnatural and sanguinary Mar, that
raged for eight years on the shores of
the New World, and sowed tho seeds of
strife that have germinated, and now,
after a hundred years of growth, are
ripening to another harvest of blood on
tho iron-bound coasts of Alaska. Talk
not to ine of pledges wiung from those
who-would trample on the dearest rights
of freomen.   Trust not to tho  promises
Correction.
Iii the Polico Court on Monday after
noon, Ed. Chapman, tho eleven-year-old
bad boy from Vancouver, who was
caught in the act of stealing from ono of
the rooms of the Occidental hotel, was
arraigned, and after considerable questioning admitted his guilt. After giving
him a severe lecture, the magistrate
said it was difficult to know what to do
with the boy, but ordered the father of
the lad, who was in court, to give him a
severe flogging, which was done then
and there, while the cries of the young
rascal who was being .corrected lor his
erring ways could be heard some distance off. In nn item furnished us by
the chief of police a few days since, we
failed to mention that lo Policeman
Sawyer belongs the honor aud glory of
having arrested the boy Chapman, who
was captured out on the Brunette bridge.

Tho jury in the case of Alexander
Houston, murder, retired at 5.30 p.m.
hiBt evening and returned nt 8 o'clock
with a verdict of manslaughter and a
recommendation to mercy. This finding wns received with some astonishment by the audience. Tho prisoner
hnd nothingto say why sontence should
not bo imposed. His'Lordship said ho
could see perfectly well how they
had come to this decision, and that
there could be no doubt whatever that
tho poor old woman had come to her
death by the attempt of the prisoner to
gratify his savage, brutal lust upon her.
He did not know, but he felt quite certain that the prisoner hnd gratified that
lust, and he felt quite certain that the
prisoner was the man who had caused
the death of the harmless old creature
at Langley; and he would now imposo
the heaviest sentence he had over
passed iu his life for manslaughter,
fourteen years   penal servitude.   The
Srisoner preserved the same stolid in-
iflerenee at the sentence as had
marked his conduct throughout tlio
trial, and was promptly removed to jail.

ruined, but also fruit trees of all discrip-

flourish. The farmers of the district
iropose to rebuild and strengthen the

him, and disregarded the most sacred

one of tbe most talented men in the
Dominion. Itwas/u's keen logic that
lirst brought the members of the Government to their senses and covered
them with shame and confusion of face.
Beforo his clear and incisive syllogisms
and winged words, the fine-spun fallacies of the Premier seemed as weak as

I sincerely believe that the hope of
tho country lies in tho Independent.
The most advanced thinkers see no
other way of reforming corrupt governments than by electing men lo support
measures, not parties. Indeed, I behove
tlmt tho only chance of redeeming the
electorate of this Province from hopeless corruption is through a new party
whose watchword shall bo ''justice tb
all—to friend and foe." It is enough to
mako all honest men grow sick at heart
nnd despair of political purity, when
they hear the Premier of this Province
un blush ingly say that tho whole business of the country is carried on in n
Heeretconchivoof his friends, and that
the representation of tho people in Parliament ussembled, aro powerless to
change the decisions and arrangements
of a corrupt (I was about to say damnable) caucus.
But apart from these considerations;
I cannot seo how any honest man can
support the Government candidates, for

I believe that Ihe man who is influenced by
tlte motives they use to induce him to vote
for them, is a thief ai heart. ' He who
sincerely promises nie, Ibat if 1 support

I shall receive tbo "lion's share of the
appropriations," or more than our just
share, is a thief at least, for lie intends
to tako the money that justly belongs to
peoplo in another part of the Province
and give it to us. We ulso aro parties
to a theft, if wo knowingly nnd willingly
receipt it. He nlso who threatens not
to give my fellow-citizens and mo our
just share of tbo appropriations, if we
vote against the Government, is also a
thief at heart; for he likewise intends
to take tlie money that belongs to us
nnd givo it to his friends.
And theso are tho detestable motives
used by men calling themselves by tlie
name of Christian to induce the electors
to support a Government that hns been
guilty of the most flagrant act of injustice to this section of the country.

inanllnofls still flows within von, or If
you have faith in the Dual triumph of
righteous rule upon tbo earth, reject
with scorn the lnnn who tells you he is

TO THE ELECTORS OF
New Westminster District
GENTLEMEN:—I beg to announce myself as
an independent candidate for ihe Legislative
Assembly at the coming election.
As most of you arc aware, I am an old resident
of tiie District, and largely Interested In Its
growth and prosperity.
lam in favor of the division of the District
ii)to ridings, and shall Insist upon our having
our fair snare of representation, according to
our population and resources, iu the Legislature.
As this District contributes very largely to the
revenue, it is clearly entitled to large appropriations for public works, and substantial grants to
the various municipalities.
I am a strong, advocate of a free tratlie bridge
across the Fraser at Brownsville, and should
urge tbat the Government subsidise that work,
anil I should also press for the construction of a
bridge across the Pitt River.
lam utterly opposed to the Immigration of
Chinese, and their employment im public works
of anv character.
I am strongly In favor of borrowing tho money
necessary to develop ihe agricultural country by
opening up roads along tbe section lines.
I should advocate any reasonable assistance
ton railway (rom Hope down tbe south side of
the Fraser, as such a line would give a vast Impetus to the development of our District.
If you do ine tbe honor to elect incl shall dn
my best to advance our interests In these aud
other matters.

Yours sincerely,

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
New Westminster Distriot
GENTLEMEN:-I offer myself us a candidate
to represent you in the Provincial legislature,
on the platform suggested by the Mainland Association, free from any pledge to either party.
I hold myself nt liberty to give an Independent support to any Government that may lie
chosen hv the people. As an elector, 1 think
the District would make il mistake should the
electors couth me last session's Redistribution
Bill, by returning either the Hou. Mr. Robson,
or candidates hampered by pledges tn support
his Government, as representatives nf this constituency.
Mr, Robson is standing for Cariboo as well ns
for Westminster District, so there Is no need to
fear that the Province will be deprived of his
services should the majority of the electors
agree Willi me on this point.
I am in favor of dividing Westminster District
iuto ridings.
Any measures that appear to me to bc for the
beui'llt of the Province would have my support,
and I think that some safe scheme might lie devised by which the credit of the Province might
be lent for local Improvements.
The contract system ought to he more strictly
carried out.
I should also like to sec some modification of
the municipal system, by which localities nut-
side of municipalities might have more direct
control nf the expenditures lu their neighborhoods, so as to secure the most economical and
cmciciit disposal of such funds and relieve the
central Government from the invidious task of
deciding between different claims.
Speculation In wild lauds, whether lumber,
agricultural, or mineral, should be discouraged,
Should you elect me I will do my duty to tbe
best of my ability, and trust you will give me
credit for honeslv of purpose, even should yon
dissent from my judgment.

TO THE ELECTORS OF
New Westminster City,
•GENTLEMEN:—In response to a requisition,
numerously signed, which has been presented to
me, I beg to offer myself as representative of
this City in tho Provincial Legislature.
I frankly confess thut, aside from the great
question of the just distribution of legislative
Power, 1 would scarcely care to be a candidate.
[ you do mc tho honor to elect me I shull make
that question my lirst consideration at all times,
and iu order to   do this it is essential  that I
keen quite free from any entangling alliances
with either Government or opposition. But to
the people and the advocacy of the rights of the
people, in this matter und iu nil others, I can
tully niitl freely pledge myself: and with those,
lie they on what side of the House they may,
who arc animated by a similar spirit, I will work
cordially.
The present crisis demands special Ireiittiienl.
Woof tlie Lower Mainland nre denied our just
share of legislative power, and so long as that Is
the cuse onr true policy, In my opinion—nay,
the policy which ourown self-respect compels us
to adopt—is to return no .nan to the Legislature
who wlll not make the righting of that wrong
his tlrst business. It mav wifely lie assumed
that those who sliall be found willing to do
right in this matter, wil be the most likely to do
right iu others also.
Notwithstanding the utmost devotion to this
first question, your representative, will have to
deal with many other matters, and perhaps it
will be sulllcient now to say on this point .lint I
believe there is room for a good deal of work before tlie ndmlnlstrallon of public affairs can
claim to lie what it should bc—government by
tlie people/or the people. I should earnestly en
tlcavor to tlo my share of that work.
1 believe I mny safely assume that you need
no assurance of my deep aud abiding Interest in
everything thnt makes for the prosperity of New
West minster City.
I am, Gentlemen,
Very truly yours,
dmylOte J. C. BROWN. '
TO THE ELEOTORS OF
Westminster   District.
GENTLEMEN:—Althe earnest request nf a
large number of ihe Electors of New Westminster District. I have consented to become n candidate to represent you in the Provlueinl Parliament,
I will endeavor to briefly present to you some
of the principal points in my platform.
1st. 1 nm iu favor of representation by population ami wilt consider ii my first duty to secure a fair and just representation for the Mainland.
'Jnd. I am iu favor of dividing tiie District Into Ridings.
ilrd. I will endenvor lo increase tlie grant to
municipalities from fl.iKKi to f [,000 per annum.
-Iih. I would also lie in fnvor of raising tlie tax
on wild lauds to such au extent as would prohibit speculators from holding large tracts of
land, tn the detriment of actual settlors.
fith. Iain lu favor of the Government adopting a public works policy and borrowing n million dollars, uud expending the same oil roads
and bridges I bro ugh mil the District and ulso ou ,
a scheme for the reclamation of overflowed
lands.
Bill. I would strongly urge upon the Proviu-
rial and Dominion Governments the necessity
of Hiding the City of Westminster In the inline- '■
dinte construction of a Tratlie Bridge across the
Fraser River.
7lh. I would also use mybcsl endeavors to
have a rail roud constructed from Popcum to the
Delta.
8th. To repeal clause 11 of the Public Schools
At I.
nth. The culling of a Canal from Mud Bay to
tlie Fraser, thereby draining il targe portion* of
the Delta, aud avoiding Ihe dangers of Point
Itol-crts.
Hub. The erection of a Trajllc Bridge at Pltl
Itivcr iiml the cxteusiotiof the Westminster road
through to Agassi*.
1 shall also endeavor, if elected, to visit all
portions of Ihe District prior lo tlio meeting of
Parliament lo learn your wants, so as to be lu a
position to discuss tin-siimcinlelllgeutly during
ihe session.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I would ask von
for your votes, conliilcnce and  support ut  the
forthcoming election,
I remain,
Yours faithfully,
dwmyi-ltd ARTHUR M.  HKRRINtl.
TO THE ELECTORS
Westminster Electoral District.
GENTLEMEN s—As ft fsditllci.'t to arrange to
see each individual elector before election (lay,
I wish lo nut before you the platform mi which
I stand whilst seeking your support.
ITp to the introduction of the Constitution
Amendment Act, J should have supported tlie
present Government, but I now stnnd independent of all parties on tiiat measure, pledged
to obtain u fair ami just Redistribution Act
Immediately after the publication of ibe census
returns; such net to lie based as uearlv as possible upon population, the abolition of the balance of power uud the division of districts into
one member constituencies, outside this pledge
I claim the privilege of being allowed to support
any legislation of a Just and hcnclichil nature
which mny be introduced by the Government.
I will endeavor to impress upon the Government the necessity of the inmost liberality iu
the expenditure for tho opening up of ull agricultural districts and even, If necessary, to borrow money for tills purpose.
The conservation of all public lauds fur actual
settlement, und the abolition of all sales of hind
iu large areas, will tieoneof the chief objects I
shall hold lu view, nnd to ulso assist in the
greatest amount of luud being brought into cultivation. I would advocate the Wild Land Tax
being raised lo 85 cents per acre.
Il will also he myetidcavor lo Impress upon
the Government the absolute necessity of Inking
steps to nssist iu the reclamation of the large
area of laud subject to overflow bv the Eraser,
so us to render it all tit for cultivation, feeling
sure Hint any money spent in thnt direction
will ben good Investment, ns the lauds will be
greatly enhanced In value for assessment.
From the above you will see I stand ns a supporter of the Government, except on one measure, and feci sure that you will see that as I
am a resident farmer in tlie district our Interests nre Identical, and I hope to be able to
malerially advance the Interests of the district
should you honor me ns your representative.

TO THE ELEOTORS OF

GENTLEMEN:—I come before you as nn Independent oandidate on the platform of the Main-
hind Association to represent this District In
Provlueinl legislature.
As ft is Impossible to «eo every elector before
tho polling dny, I take this mode of placing before you some of my views. 1 will pledge myself to no party, bui will support measures, ami
not party. I will support all just nnd bene-
llfiul legislation.
1 will do my utmost to obtain n Redistribution
Bill thnt will be fair to the Mainland upon the
basis of population, urea uud resources, without
regard to the bulnuoenf power theory, as soon
ns possible after the census.
I hold that the Agricultural lands of this Province should bc held for uclunl settlers, and not
be sold to speculators in large blocks, and that
such unimproved land held in large blocks
should be heavily taxed, so as to compel the
owners to improve them or sell them to those
that will.
I believe ft would be tn tho Interests of the
country thnt money should be borrowed on the
credit of the Province, aud loaned at the same
rate of interest for the purposes of reclamation
on tbe seenritv of tbe laud reclaimed.
Thnt there should be a liberal expenditure of
money on roads, bridges, Ac, ami, If necessary,
tlmt money should lie borrowed for tbe |mr-
po<e, provided that the .Mainland could get Its
proper proportion of It;
Thnt the building of railroads should be encouraged, lu order to open up what are at present Inaccessible regions;
That all Government money spent within
municipalities should be placed at the disposal

TO THE ELECTORS OF
Hew Westminster District
GENTLEMEN:-At the reuiiest of many friends
from all sections of the district I beg to offer
myself as a candidate for a seat In the legislature at the approaching provincial elections.
I shall If elected be a supporter of the present
Government, lu sn far us in my Judgment their
measures arc just to all portions of the province.
The conventional allotment of represent nt Ion
agreed upon at the time of confederation I conceive to have been bused upon what was deemed
ah equitable niljusliiiimlut tlmt period of our
history, subject to such subsequent revision as
our altered circumstances might from time to
time necessitate.' Any delineation of political
lines of demarcation between Vancouver Island
and the Mainland to be observed In pei pctulty
would have been antagonistic to the principles
of free government and would be a falal barrier
to the future harmony, prosperity, and well-
being of the provinco. Holding these views I
shall, if elected, strenuous! v oppose anv measure
for the further redistribution of the represent!!-
tain which does not aim at the complete obliteration of all existing sectional boundaries.
I shall advocate a more conservative policy
in the disposal of our timber lands, nud support
any J ml Ie lous measure to prevent tbe destruction of timber by forest fires.
I will support u liberal expenditure tu tbe
opening up for settlement our agricultural
lands and the development of our mineral resources.
Upwards of eighteen years of active pioneer
life In the District hnvo mnde mc familiar with
the wants and difficulties Incident to tlie common lot of evory settler, and should I bu returned as one of your representatives, I will endeavor to do mv part to givo each portion of the

TO THE ELEOTORS
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of our late
representative (the much-respected D.
Chisholm) and afj I have stated in my
curd to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before you
some of iny views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.
I have been asked what I mean when
I announce myself as a Liberal-Conservative; I reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residence of over 30 years in this Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has hud tbo effect of
changing many of my views, and given
me liberal ideas, therefore I claim I um
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that purty lines are not defined in
British Columbia as they are iu the older
provinces, I consider that our representatives are not in duty hound to give a
through-thick-and-thin support to any
I party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give n generous support to all
ooon measures whioh may be brought
before them, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, und
should a measure come before them
which tbey consider in any way detrimental to the interests of thiB Province
they should take their stand like true
men nnd vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy us applied
to British Columbia. We ure a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the Enst, aud niuny articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we cannot produce at home can
he obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, and in many cases tlie 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 ure brought from the States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to. supply our wants, und
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and are met with such heavy duties
that heads of families iu thia Province
pay more than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
AVe have hud example to the point during tlie lust three months. It we had
not received a good supply from California there would have been a meat
famine; us it is we are now and have
been paving 25 « tits per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the same state of
affairs is likely to obtain again nfter uny
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for the litBt eleven yeurs
our stock raisers ure littlo better prepared to meet hard winters than tbey
were before, and to my mind the onlv
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
X. P. are the manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question,I would advocate "Reciprocity1
in many articles which are at present in* the Tariff lists, as I think
it would be beneficial to both
countries, und the working man would
not have to go down so deep into liis
pockets to buy what he needs to eat and
wear. I am aware tlie Government must
huve a revenue to carry on tho affairs of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more nnd get ut the pockets of the
richer classes who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to tlie long continued sickness
of the lute Mr. Chisbolm, he wus unable
to be iu bis place this session, and very
little during the previous oiiCj so we of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before the notice of
the House. Hud he (Mr. Chisholm)
been iu his sent, 1 do not think the Postmaster-General would have been left so
much in the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Fraser as lie 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 need better postal facilities, which
1 consider should receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
1 hope that in the near future our
District will reach thnt point thut we
muy look for it to be divided und receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Pomin'ion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, and Alien the census
returns are in I think the necessary
number of population will he found to
demand such additional representutiqn.
The protection of the river bunks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also tbe works for improving
tbo channel at the Sandbeuds, in view
of the expected increase in our shipping
interests.
I consider the Province should have
control over all railway charters uud
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District in particular, I feel should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from tbe mouth
of the Serpentine to Fraser River, ulso
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from the FniHer River to Port
Moody, which bus often been suggested
to ine,
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, und encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coining here fast
enough; I would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
There are many other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would make
this address too long. I hope to see us
many us possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them und answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
urrivul of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send due notice of time nnd place of meetings.
During my long residence in the Province I havo truvelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of tbe
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I havo the honor to be elected
I assure you I shall watch over the interests of thiB District faithfully and to
the best of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go us a true British Columbian and to do my duty as such.
Yours faithfully,

Parliamentary Election, 1890
To the Electors of New'Westminster District:
GENTLEMEN:—Having been requested by a
large number of electors of this District to offer
iiivwlf ns 11 candidate to represent you in the
House of Commous, to which request I havo
muoh pleasure in complying, I beg to state that
should you do me tlie honor to elect me as your
representative wbilst giving the present Government my free and independent support, I would
do my utmost to favor the following amongst
the many measures that I consider would be
beneficial to tbe interests of this Province und
the Dominion ut large.
To urge the further Improvements of the navigation of the Fraser and other rivers, the protection of their banks, the Improvement of nnv
harbors In this District, and the construction of
canals where necessary for the purpose of
allowing fanners and others every facility to
reach market.
To encourage agriculture by protecting all
such articles as can be produced lu this Province, nud to lower duties on all that cannot,
and which are absolutely the necessaries of life,
and increase the tarltl'oii luxuries so that the
consumer would beeven taxed less than al present.
To increase the representation in proportion
to thu wealth and tmpurtnncu nf this District.
To Increase and have adequate mail service to
nil portions of the Province nud free loiter delivery iu cities.
No diminution in the Chinese Restriction
Act.
To have the Fishing Regulations amended to
meet ihe requirements of this Province.
To have a Dry-Dock constructed nt some suitable point on the Mainland to meet tho growing
demands of tbls District.
To urge the exchange of Lands iu Peace River
for the Lands In the Railway Holt:
And that Mining Machinery lie admitted free
nf duty until such Is manufactured in the Dominion.
To appoint efficient Immigration agents In all
Important localities.
lo urge the Dominion Government to contribute to make Roads and Bridges through
Dominion lands.
To urge immediate aid in any measure to prevent the overflowing of Dominion lauds in this
Province and to reclaim those subject to inundation.
Having been a resident of this District for over
twenty years and knowing Us requirements, I
Bhould lie iu a position to advocate your interests, and also my having bad the honor to be
your representative for tlie lost four years in the
1'rovincial Legislature would place mc in a position of knowing something of Legislative
routine.
I hope to visit each polling station during tho

the various topics of the dav, which would be
Impossible to do in u short address.

TO THE ELECTORS
New Westminster District,
GENTLEMEN:—As I have already announced,
I lieu to offer inysel f us a candidate for the Beat lu
the Commons made vacant by the death of our
late member, nnd I come bofore you ns a supporter of tbe Government of Sir John Mucdon-
ald, reserving to myselt, of course, the right to
act independently should the action of the Government In nny matter seem prejudical to our
Interests.
1 would strongly urge Immediate attention to
tho Improvement of the River whero required,
for the protection of the rich agricultural lands
of the District, and If elected, I shall at oiiee
proceed to Ottawa and leave no stone unturned
to secure the immediate appointment of a
competent engineer with n view to tho prompt
undertaking of this most Important work.
As you aro aware, the duty on certain kinds
of mining machinery has been remitted in this
Province as a special concession to British Columbia on account of the special conditions obtaining here. I would strongly urge the further
application of this principle of special tnrifl'ar-
ringenienls, so as to relieve consumers of goods
which must be imported, while preserving the
protection of our agricultural and other Interests.
The land laws of tbe Dominion, having been
framed without close consideration uf our requirement, are in many points unsuitable, for
example in the conditions as to clearing, I
would endeavor to secure immediate reform in
this important matter.
Hubsidles having been granted to railways In
tho various Provinces of (he Dominion, I should
urgently present the claims lo similar assistance
of railways within our own Province,
Should the Oity of New Westminster decide to
build a bridge across the Fraser. I should use
my best endeavors to obtain a substantial subsidy for the work, urging that an undertaking
of this character should rank with canals and
railways as one entitled to natlounl aid.
The next census will undoubtedly show such
an increase In the wealth aud population of this
District us wlll constitute an undeniable claim
to Increased representation in the Commons.
That claim, If elected, 1 shall support tu the utmost of my ability.
Although, with tho growth of tho District,
tho mail service has been Improved nnd extended, it still lags far behind our requirements.
I Bhould give special attention to this part of
your representative's work, feeling that it is
one which is or vital importance.
I should urge the enactment of suoh fishery
regulations, especially In the Issuing of licences,
ns would, without any injustice to tho canneries, tho importance of which to the prosperit v of
the District all must recognize, fullv protect
the free fishermen, ami encourage tiie settlement amongst in. of the greatest possible number of thut Industrious and hardy class of men.
All enactments and regulations for the protection of whito labor would receive my heart v
support.
Continued work towards the Improvement of
the harbors of New Westminster and Vancouver, ami the efficient lighting and buoying of
the same, is a matter which would have my
closest attention at all times.
In n word, I should constantly urge upon tbe
Government the wisdom of a liberal policy in
public works in this District, tho vast resources
of which make it certain that sueh a policy
would he amply justified by results.
Trusting to have the opportunity of seeing
every elector before polling day,
I am, Gcntlomen,
Very Bincoroly yours,
