they began to lenp from the roof aud

opposite sido of tho etreet and to those
in tho rear on Roo Place. A second
alarm was thoreforo sont out, nud as
this proved ineffectual, a third alarm
waa Bounded, und in half au hour a
general alarm, which brought appara

Ohaurioey street on ttio left hand
Bide to tho building next on the
side occupied by Clueott Boon. In
less than ton minutes the flame., were
pouring into tho mammoth stone
building occupied by Williums & Cu.,
noxt corner south from the other side
it aiught tilmost at once upon the
building on Koo Place aud the wind
favored the supposition that Lhe whole
Giiuth and tho whole.ale district wern
dooiijed. Already ovory building
iibing Kingston and Ohauncy streets
were burning and tho flam os were eating up all those un the south side of
R'»e Place; on the east side of Ohauii*
coy street weru many buildings, all of
them mammoth structures, occupied
as wholesale houses in dry goods and
fancy gooda trade. Every endeavor
was mado to keep them from burning.
This endeavor was futile, however, and
the Uames rushed on in both directions. The Inrgo retail dry goods establishment of Jordan, Marsh & Oo.
at Washington nud Arch Btreets
hus been burned, nnd the Globe
theatro at Haywood place and
Washington street is now burning. Itis reported that several livos
havo been lost from fulling walls and
oilier accidents and it is said that dead
bodies havo been taken out of the premises of duett, Boon k Co., 74 Chauuccy
street. Tlie Globo theatre was almost
entirely destroyed and Francis Wilson's
company, which was playing'-Thefiolah,"
lost all their costumes and scouery. The
wildest excitement prevailed and tho
fir.men were greatly hindered by the
narrow streets aud immense crowds of
spectators. Tho flro was finally got
under control at 11 ;65, after twenty of
the finest buildings in tlio city had been
destroyed, causing a loss now estimated
at 810,000,000. It is uow thought that
uo lives were lest, though four or five
persons wore moro or less Injured,

A TALE OF THE SEA.
New York. Nov. 27.—Oapt. She!-
Ler of the burned steamei Santiago,
made his lirst report this morning to
the company s agent. It does uot differ from tho accounts ulrendy published. H.i says fire was first discovered issuing from the .earns and
hutches of the main deck, and in a few
minutes smoke in blending volumes
began pouring nut of the hatches.
Despite streams of water poured on,
tho flames spread rapidly under the
hatches. The cooliio-iss uf the 1.dicers
prevented a panio and the work was
continued of quenching the flames.
The deck fell in about two hours uf ter
the fire was first discovered and the
captain ordered the boats to he lowered, as the case wus then hopeless,
Tho peoplo were transferred in the
midst of a gale nnd high sea. The
story of the rescue by the Bhip A. J.
Fuller, hns already been told. The
captain highly praises the bravery of
tho officers and men, to whose cool
courage tho absence of loss of lifo is to
be ascribed.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Tbat Detailed Arroiml.
Editor Columbian—Sir.—In reply to
my letter stating that our charge for services relative to the Lulu Island reserve
was 8250, Mr. Curtis says no detailed
account was ever rendered, I herewith
enclose you for publication a copy of the
account sent to tho council in June last.
This morning I enquired at the city
clerk's office and was informed by Mr.
Robson that the account had beeu received and would, in the usual order of
business, be handed to the chairman of
the finance committee, Mr. Curtis.
What has since become of it the clerk
did not know. Now, why has this ao*

friends have enquired at tho city clerk's
office to see this account, but have been
unable to do bo. Your readers will see
that the only charge made by us relating
to Lulu Island reserve is the 8250 on tbe
28th of Fubiuary,
The bill runs from February 28th to
May Hth and includes $430 of disbursements (other than personal expenses),
$250 of v/bieh irincluded ln iu the $000
item for obtaining oity charter.
I am now informed that it was. cur*
rently reported on tha Btreets before the
election, that 1 bharged $1,300 for
obtaining the Royal Columbian hos*
ospital lots. This fs absolutely untrue; I neither charged nor thought of
charging one cent for my services in this
matter. This the hospital board are
well aware of.

SCOTTISH LYRIC GEMS
Mcitr-I  in  Confer.   Last  Mf*. il  at llie
Opera Bouse.
The grand Scotch concert in tbe
opora house last night, attracted an
audience that filled all tho reserved
seats, n respectable share of the others,
and had representatives in the gallery.
The usual   half-hour's delay,  of
course, ensued before tbe commencement of the entertainment, but for this
the audienco had themselves mainly to
blame.' Mis. Trew opened the concert
by playing a pianoforte solo entitled,
"Jessie's Dream."   The piece was rendered in the performer's best atyle nnd
gained   upplause.     The  trio,   "Nid
Noddin'", by Mrs. Lyal snd Messrs.
Anderson and Lyal, it was weak, but
nut unpleaiing.   All the  performers
apparently failed to grasp the fact that
tbey hud u pretty large nail to fill with
their voices. The violin solo, "Heather
Wreath," by Miu Connon, wis un-
doubtedly one of the beit pieces of the
evening.   The penonal charms of the
fair player, tb* easy grace and ilelio-icy
with which ahe handled the bow, snd
the classically beautiful attitude  assumed by her, combined with the faultless lime and the sweetness of the
strains she drew from tho instrument,
quite took the fancy of the hearers,
and they showed their appreciation by
asking an encore.   It wu the best
violin pluying we have had here for
sometime; and even those whose great
luck it has been to hear Madame N >r*
man Neruda, Netaura Torretelli or
Sarasute must have felt whilo li itening
to Misa Connon last night that if she
had not the brilliancy, the pasii-n, or
the technique of those wonderful pi y-
ers, sho had, at lenst, iu common with
them, tbe suul for music, 'N<< other
country in the world has such Eton* of
lyrics as Scotland; their subject-) range
from "grave to guy; from lively to no*

On account of the various and contradictory reports about a canners1
deputation at Ottawa seeking the abolition of the $50 Chinese poll tax, Mr.
Thomas Cunningham, our new M.P.P.,
has tiken upon himself to send the
following dispatch, this morning:
New Westminster, B, C, Nov. 28.
To Hon. Sir John A. Macdonald, Ottawa:
On behalf of the breadwinners und
electors of this eity, I earnestly protest
against any modification of the Chinese
restriction act.
Tbe measure is a necessary protection
against a dangerous invasion of the worst
form of debased Mongolian heathenism,
which tends only to degrade labor and
impoverish the country.

Member-elect  for   New   Westminster

II. Kipp, of Chilliwack, gave us 1
call yeaterday.
T. Paine, of Lulu Island, was in
tho city yesterday.
Miss Peters drove over to Vancouver last night after the concert.
E. A. Sharpe, of Lulu Island, has
gone to Mexico to spend tho winter.
Miss Connon and Messrs. Gibson
and Moore returned to Vanoouver this
morning.
D. Macdonald, of Winnipeg, inspector of the Confederation Life Association, arrived in the oity yesterday.
D. Wilson, B. A., inspector of
schools for the province, is in the eity,
conducting tho high school examinations.
E. J. Morgan, travelling agent for
G. W. Gilchrist, tailor, Brandon,
Man., is stopping at the Colonial and
ts taking orders, he has an u d. in
another column.
F. G. Strickland (of F. G. Strickland
& Co,) returned to the city yesterday,
after an abience of about five weeks,
during which time he has visited
most of the principal cities in Canada
and transacted a large amount of important business.
Mr. Ladner is hopping mad, says an
Ottawa dispatch of yesterday, at the
loport circulated that the canners' delegation wero iu that oity to advocate
the abolition of the Chinese poll tax.
He says their business is to secure a
modification of the ulmon fishing regulations.
Mme. Louise Lauson, the proprietress of the fashionable millinery establishment at No. 1,400 Notre Dame
street, Montreal, was charged in the
police court, tho other day, with enticing girls of tender years from their
parents and sending them to Chicago
and other western oities for immoral
purposes.
The first case that came up before
Justice Rouleau at tbe supremo court,
at Calgary, was that of Ah Sing, a
Chinaman, charged with having committed rape on a little girl aged five
years at Anthracite on October 8th,
He was sentenced to nino months im-
{.risonpient and to   receive twenty
ashes with the oat.
by blundering into tho awful and profound mysteries of technical criticism,
where even "angels fear to tn-ad." But
then, such people would ger up aud
criticize Liszt or Paganini; nud would
have, no doubt, told the former his
"carpal idiosyncrasies" (think that is
quoted correctly) wero characterized by
superabundant gesticulation and superfluity of metacarpal titillation. And
the latter that his "bowing" wna "grotesque" or "weird" or something
"brainy" like that. However, Miss
Peters carried the good-natured part
of the audience by storm, and their
applause drowned the snarl of cynical
Diogenes out 0' tub.
"When the kyo comes bamo," by
Mr. Anderson, was very prettily rendered. This song ia of a purely agricultural nature, as even the author's
namo was Hogg, and he was n shepherd.
"Wert thou in the cauld blast!" by
Miss Clark nnd Mrs. Lyal was sung in
fine stylo nud pleased the audience
immensely. During tho entre aete
something supremely Scotch and
highly humorous was given. At first
most of the audience were under tho
impreuion that a young porker had
been injured severely behind the
scenes, then it sounded liko a whole
brood of them, until tho curtain went
up and disclosed a piper. There was
some dancing dono by Mr. McLean,
not exactly in the atyle of the great
McLennan, but not bad. Mr. McLean's Oheiterfieldian bow at the conclusion wm capitally dono aud sent the
audience into convulsions.
Mias Connon again won the hearts
of her hearers in part second of the
"Heather Wreath." Miss McBrido's
singing is too well-known to require
comment hero, it was equal to her best
efforts. Tho recitation by Miu McNab of "Jessio of Lucknow" wu fairly
good, although thoro was , a
lack of the firo and energetic declamation which this favorite piece
demand b.
Mr. Gibson sang the "Emigrant's
farewell" in good stylo nnd replied to
a call for an encore in, "The march of
the Cameron men." Mrs. Trew again
delighted the audience by . playing a
selection of Scotch airs, entitled
"Balmoral." Mr. Keary ung "The
Laird o' Cockpen" as it is seldom sung,
It was the best vocal effort of the evening. He gave as an encore "It's English, you know," whieh captivated the
audience.
Mrs. Lyal's rendering of "Auld
Robin Gray" wu very sweet. Mr. G.
Lyal ung "John Grumlie" very well
nnd tlie audience enjoyed it, "Auld
Lang Syne" by all-concluded one of tha
most enjoyable evenings that has been
spent here in a long time.
Rev. Mr. Owens, putor of St Bartholomew's Reformed Episcopal church
Montreal, has been oompelled to resign owing to the ill-feeling created in
a majority of tho congregation by hit
ritualistic practices.

Duiuxo tho late election campaign
in this city, "dodgers" wero  circulated by somo nnonymous opponents
of Mr.  Cunningham, charging bim
in efi'ect with being u pro-Chinese
man.   It was nn election tlotlge, of
course, and   whether  or   not   tho
morning paper gang  were  the real
dodgers we shall not attempt to say;
at any rate, they were strongly suspected   of   being   the   responsible
parties,   That insinuation, if it required any disproof, bus been effectually knocked on tho head by   Mr.
Cunningham's action in placing him
self publicly on record, by means of
the despatch published elsewhere,
against the reported movement for
the abolition of tlie $50   Chinese
poll tax.   But, leaving  Mr.   Cunningham's attitude on the Chinese
question altogether out of sight for
a moment, peoplo ure beginning to
enquire how it is that that "only
independent" and  "fearless" paper
on Church street, that has so much
to siy about compacts, cliques and
rings, has not a word to say on the
alleged proposal by the canners' deputation   at    Ottawa    to   abolish
Chinese restriction . Js it because
the morning paper is in   the   confi-
denco of tho canners, ahd knows
that thore is nothing in the reports.:
But that can hardly be the case, for '
it would then have contradicted the
desj. itjh in its columns the otber
day aimishing the information,   Is
the paper in question silent, because
it is itself controlled   by a clique
th.it  bids it remain   mum   on   the
Chinese question . The lattor explun*
ntinn, under nil  tho circumstances,

is  only   fair   that  our   veracious

WHY
CANADIANS  OPPOSE ANNEXATION.
■ st
irato as  to tho
nover before in
Tho following article, wliich will
bo found to deal quite ably and comprehensively with the interesting
subject \vhi-_h it discusses, appeared
in the Toronto Week of a lato date,
over the signature of W! W. B. Mclnnes, tho younger son of Senator
Mclnnes, of this city. "Willio"
Mclnnes, ns the merry, jolly-faced
boy, was well and popularly known
a few years ago by most of our city
readers, ami it will be a matter of
interest and surprise to many that
a youth of eighteen should produce
such an article and gain admittance
to tho columns of one of Canada's
most select periodicals. Following is
the article in full:
Since tho declaration of independence thu United States has attained such wealth and powor, and
made such progress in art and
science as to (-route a host of admirers in every land. Suoh a class
there is in Canada, With them
admiration has evolved into a desire for union.
Bewildered at the thought of the
republic's enormous wealth and
rapid progress, thoughtless of tlie
thorns while tho rose enchants them,
heedless of tho reef while the surfaco
entices thein, they long for annexation. But there are many in Oanada to whom the proposal that tho
Dominion should join the union presents an uninviting side. They see
the rose and admire it, but they
fear that making it their own implies many a prick from the thorns,
The grounds for this apprehension
aro:—
1. If annexation took place Canadians would be subject io all the
dangers that threaten the republic.
ln the southern states there are
millions of negroes. Tbey arc multiplying with amazing rapidity.
Their intelligence is below the average, Tlio govern men t of many
states is falling into their power.
The spirit nf tin- Ku-Klux fanatics
still hovers in the lonely places of
the south and inspires tho rash of
both races t" l»lo"tly fray. In wh it
relations will they I.vh toj-elher?

tine of the reui-.it
city was the unin.i
play d by tho eloot
rosu t.   Men  who      	
thoir lives had entered  into public
(questions displayed an onthusiasm
uluiost ridiculous.    Whether it be
tru., as John Bright once said, that
"polities nnd  religion are the only
tiling;; worth serious thought," is open
to doubt, but tbe excitement over
nur city election    ..•rti.inly   goes to
show that   there   is   an awakened
spirit here which  augurs   well for
lhe future of our civic and provincial politics.    At least the   public
have shown a thoroughness of purpose und  determination  that  they
will intereat themselves in affairs,
and this in itself is admirable.    For
some time past every other man in
the ciiy has  been a canvasser for
voters, not always judiciously indeed, but with an eagerness which
plainly proved his soul was in (he
worlr.
A3 to whether canvassing is quite
in the spirit of the ballot act,
opinions differ, but one thing is
sar<~-, tliat the soliciting of votes
gives rise to aa unconscionable
amount of lying. There is in this
world a pertM-o*-™*:. of persons who
Dttfiot for tb-* lite of tbem say "no,"
and flu rxn-etj-oenee is tbat when
iit-kt-u to rote for one man tbey will
rtadiiy -_ro*__:_y-, and straightway
upon i.'-irii; solicited by tbe ether
side give an equally emphatic response. Others there are who, holding that no in-.ii has a right to ask
anotliar for his vote, will promise
readily, holding the theory of "meet
ounning with cunning.'' They will
tell you in a candid interval tbat
tho candidate or his agent, when
canvassing, cannot expect to bo told
the truth, and that tbo voters are
at liberty to maintain their secrecy
by any menus they choose. The
morality of those views can certain*
ly not bu defended, but, ua someone
said "men nro not governed by morality, but by act of parliament," and
bo mou naive their consciences by
arguing that, nt any rate, if tbey are
lying when thev promiso, at least
they aro acting iu the spirit of the
ballot act, which, like "language,
was given mon to conceal their
thoughts."  .
New Wostminstor is immensely
abend in consequence of the interest
ahe lias   recently   evinced   in   the
quostion of the hour, and it remains
to be seen whether it is possible to
maintain this feeling.   To do this it
is, above all things, necessary to see
that the voters' register  is kept in
order by the constant adding of new,
and the striking off of the names of
deceased,   persons,   and if possible
nou-residents.    It is  absolutely essential for the purity of future election contests thnt no persons' name
should appear on any two lists of
voters.   There  is good   reason to
supposo that many names are on
more than ouo list at tho present
time, and this state bf things should
be speedily attended to.   Tho fact
is, that our system of registration of
votors is defective in many respects,
and, for the Bake of fair  play and
purity of elections, the legislature
might with ad vantage to the public
welfare look into this  urgent  mat*
ter.   A ihort bill  oould be run Children Cry for Pitcher1 „ Castoria

That this great problem threatens
both peace and prosperity cannot be
denied. Canadians any well look
with apprehension upon proposals
that would involve them in such unprovoked danger, costSiig tliem separation from their traditional in&'i-
tutions, possibly their sons and safe
ty. The probability of civil dissension ond the lack of a national spirit
in Canada seem to have very little
weight as an argument for nnnexa-;
tion when it follows that union with j
the states, while preventing dissension among Canadians (if it would
do that), nevertheless would not
separate them from but, rather introduce them to, racial wars of such
formidableproportions os never could
arise in Canada.
'2. Among Canadians has grown
up an idea that tbe laws of the
United States are loosely enforced,
and that inBuence and capital control the bench. While Llio rampant
lawlessness in the "West may fill the
Canadian with unreasonable horror,

which occurred at his homo on Tuesday morning last. Mr. Cawley had
been prostrated by consumption for

Tho deceased will bo greatly missed in

important placo for yenrs, At the
time of hts doath Mr. Cawley wns
reeve of tho municipality of Chilliwack,
he havihff been returned for three con*
secutiro years to that honorable po*
elision. Mr. A. Reece has been appointed provisional reeve by the
counoil for the remainder ol lho year.
The funeral of tlie lato Mr. Cawley
was to tako placo this afternoon at

A Valuable anin.
The "oldest inhabitant," or hoary-
headed pioneer, is present in every
community, nnd is ever roady to laud
the good old days of long ago, nnd deprecate the pernicious presenco and
customs of tho "tenderfoot."
Ono of the first abovo mentioned
gentlemen, who is as full of Cariboo
nnd Cassiar experiences us n cocoa-nut
is of milk, was yesterday deploring
the lot of tho average pioneer to a
smnll but select coterie of new-comers,
and wub especially severe upon the
manner in which real estate had increased in valuo.
"Why, gentlemen," said he, "I remember the time very well when 1
could havo purchased tho wholo of tho
municipality of .Surrey for a "rod flannel shirt."
"Why didn't you buy it," ventured
one of his hearers.
"Why." returned tho pioneer with
minnled scorn and contempt; "Why I
couldn't get the shirt."
Dime Novels Uid lt.
A boy named William Smith, aged
14 years, ran away from his homo in
Port Townsend and came north to
British Columbia, about two weeks
ngo. He has led a wandering aimless
life sinco that date and aer/ed mi the
steamer Irving na a stewards' male and
had a position nt thu Queen's hotel in
the capacity of stock-keeper. Tho
parents of the misguided juvenile arrived yestorday and Master Willie,
who had been taken charge of by Iho
polico on his return from a voyage to
Chilliwack, was handed ovor to them.
Mr. D. W. Smitb.'the father of the
boy, is a prominent lawyer in Port
Townsend. It seems that tho boy's
mind becamo warped and poisoned by
reading cheap novels of tho dime
variety, and this escipado was mainly
brought about by that means. Chief
of Police Pearce, after much peisua-
Bion, induced tho young man to roturn
homo with hia parents. The party
left this morning for Port  Townsend.
Mr. -Mkiii-i-i win tin to Victoria,
Tho elevation to the bench of thu
Hun. Mr. Drake rendered necessary
tho retirement of that gentleman from
thn firm of Drake, Jackson & Helmcken, and it is understood that Mr. H.
B. W, Aikman, Dominion land commissioner at New Westminster, hns
resigned iii— nfticial position with thu
object of joining Messrs. Jackson and
Helmcken ns a partner mid that he
will remove to Victoria in the course
of a few weeks to reBido here permanently. Mr. A-ikman's accession will
greatly strengthen the alreudy strong
firm.— Times. Tho above is nut
strictly correct up to particulars. Mr.
Aikman has not yet resigned, but will
shortly, and will enter upon his new-
duties after January 1st. It is interesting to note that Mr. Aikman was .
tnembor of the lirm which he will soon
join again, from January 18U2 to some
timo iu 1871, resigning at that time to
accept the position of regi3trar-gener>d
of titles for the province, which hu
held uut I appointed agent of Dom in
ion lands and member of the land
board, in December, 1883. Since the
latter dato Mr. Aikman hns been a resident to this city, and his removal to
the capital ao soon will be regrett.d by
hia many friends here, who, however,
will wish him every success in his new-
old sphere.
The Intent J'Mi ..tory.
.Some huge codfish were received at
\ianeii's liah house this morning, and
nhile one cf them was being cleaned
tho following articles of cod diet were
fi.-und: One rib-bone of an os, with
partof the spine attached, the v-ho'c
ii; ..soring 18 inches long; ono bar of
white soap, with tho trado mark and
Ratnu of the manufacturer, the corners
and edges all digested; one Balmon,
about 20 inches long, partially di_t.-i.t-
i d, besides a I'd of other miicellnueniis
truck of the "trackless sea." Tho ostrich and tho editors of American
comic papers ore usually credited with
having the toughest digestive powers
in creation, but this modest-, little
liriti.h Columbia cod, oveitops their
best efforts by a large majority. Tho
ostrich has been known to mako a light
lunch off broken crockery and gluss,
(i la ash barrel, and partake of die
carded oyster cans and ancient meat
tins witli the utmost gusto. But this
"bird of the wilderneBa" drew tho line
ut soap; ho might swallow the ten
penny nail ho had uaed as a toothpick,
and nover wink his -'soft dark eye,"
but ho refuses to recognize his need of
internal ablutions, and gazes with lofty
scorn on this production of modern
science, eonp. The voracity of tho cod
is little understood; from all appear
nnces this scavenger of the ocean will
eat anything. If he will tackle a bar
of soap he will certainly eat anything,
Au examination of the mouth of this
tish discloses the interesting icthy;>lo-
gical faot (there's no monopoly in using
big words) thut it iB provided with a
sot of tusks that might inspire tho
onvy of a wild hour. Fishermen say
that the cod will not hesitate to attack
oven a man, under water, and diver-,
havo hnd troublo with them frequently.

and Described.
The stylo of Mr. H. V. EJmonds's
new liouse may be classed as the modern American, which i_ a compendium
of all tho prettiest bits of every other
tyle; the result being extremely
pleasing. This princely mansion will
be second in eiao, appearance and fin
ish only to that of the Dunamut. family
at Victoria, which is built nl stone
and has slate roofs, whilo the WestminBter house is of wood with stono
foundations. The dining room in tho
Edmonds mansion measures _!_ by _5
feet, and opening off it ia the comer-
atory, measuring lo by 2u feet. Tho
conservatory is entered from the dining room by two arches, one on either
tiicUi of the great open lire plueo in tho
dining room. At tho rear of tho din*
ing room is the brcakfait room, connected with the former by sliding
doors, which, when thrown back,
makes a fino room for bulls, concerts
or other amusements. Tho hall ia 15
feet wide and 25 long. The main entrance is on Queen's nvenue, and tho
carriage entrance on Park lane; tho
side entrance oonnepta with the main
hall,- Tho library is 10 hy 25 feet and
is pleasantly situated. The main stair*
way will he a grand affair, surpassing
in magnificence anything known ou
tho mainland. It will be furnished in
hard wood panels highly poli-shed)
and on tho first landing, whicli is ru-
ct-ssed, the windows will be leaded
light* of stained glass specially imported from England for tho purpose.
Ou tho second floor tho bedrooms
nnd chambers nro of noble dimensions,
some of them measuring 20 by 25 ft.
Others aro 15 by 20 feet.
In tho bedrooms will bo plaoed porcelain baths imported from England,
and the lirat of the kind in use iu the
provinco. In tho third story ia tho
billiard room which will be fitted up
with oriental hixuriotiseoss; thero will
bo room for two tables. Thu turret
room, which will also be used for a
smoking room, hits a view of the Fraser
valley that for beauty aud completeness is simply matchless.
Balconies will bo placed on the east
sido of the houso from which a fino
view of tho Queen's park can be obtained. In tho drawing room nativo
hard wood panels will be used in finishing. Tho mantels are different in
all tho rooms and thoy are all splendid
specimens of carving and artistic
wood work. That in the breakfast
room will be walnut, iu the
dining room cherry, iu lho library
native hardwood. The ga. fixtures
avo nil been selected and are tlie
finest goods in their line. Hot nnd
cold water will be laid cm all ovectlio
house, and the heating will bu by hot
water. Electric bell communication
will b_- placed in llie houso.
The cellar in the basement extends
the full length and breadth of the
building. Tho heating nppar..tua will
bo placed in the basement.
All the rums nro broken up inlo
alcoves, recessea, bay windows, nooks,
ami crannies according to tiie modern
s'ylo Tho principal windows aro of
plate ghtBS, the floors and walls ara nil
deafened* and tho floors are of narrow
plank, edge grain. All tho materials
used in tho construction of tlio houao
the very best that it was possible
to secure, and were specially selected.
Tho turnings, windows nnd doors wore
made by Muirhatid & Mann, of Victoria. Somo of lhe furniture is boing
made at Wintemuto Bros', factory and
tbe remainder will come from the east.
The four acres of ground on which the
houso -.funds will bo laid nut ina nmn-
nor commensurate with tho magnificence of tho mansion itself.
The stable and coach huusa are
built on the moat substantial principle
aud are commodious and havo all the
latest modorn improvements,
Tho premises will not be ready for
occupation until the end of the winter.
Mr. G. W. Grant is tho architect nnd
is Buperintotidiug the construction,
When finished the house and grounds
will bu nn ornament to thu eity; it ia
only another addition to the splendid
residences which nre gradually going
up around the park,

escape tho opinion that tho great territory of such a country would involve
suoh a, disinterestedness and evon op-
posi-iori between its parts as would
threaten tlie unity of tlio whole. Ex*
pansivonesB hue always been the great-
cat foe to largo umpires, and .while it
may be urged that modern facilities of
communication and conveyance now
render distant patti capable of uniting
under onu government, and living iu
peace and prosperity, yet no number
of telegraphs or railways can over destroy local industries aud local interests, and while they exist the unity of
a country cun never bu depended on.
This is the story of the Ute civil war.
7. The American constitution is
inferior t.- the Canadian. As this is
very much a matter of opinion I will
here cite but a fow of tho moro generally acknowledged defects of the American constitution.
(a) The great power plaood in tlto
presidont is inconsistent with truo
democracy.
(6) Tho Boleu'tion of president, while
open lo many adverse criticisms which
it seems impossible to obviate, is alio
liable to this primo objection, viz.,that
ho may be a man little known to the
country, of small ability, and of no.
aptitude for governing. Often when
party chiefs vie for tho highest honor
in tho land tho party opportunely
brings forward a dark horse to heal
up dissension. Now, this dark horse,
of necessity, cannot bo among tho best
men of tho party, for he must bo a
person whose inferiority ib suoh as has
never excited jealously among statesmen, and, therefore, for whoso election all can work without nny envious
restraint. If auch a candidate bo _uo-
cussful, then the situation of affairs is
sufficiently serious.
(c) Tho government of the republic,
when once elected, ia elected for a
given term, and this is not as susceptible to the wishes of the peoplo ua iv
true democratic government or an
efficient or respected government
Bhould bo.
Again, cvun if the legislatures change
their views iu compliance to publio
sentiment, jet tho president may stand
an all powerful unit fatal lo all popular
legislation. Tho remedy for this defect
as prescribed in tho constitution, namely the two-thirds legislature vote, is
«.no that is rarely practicable. Tho
history of tho union emphasizes thia
constitutional weakuoss and ulso tho
complete inefficiency of the prescribed
remedy.
(d) Muoh might be said against the
separation of the executive and legislative branches of thu American go-em-
ment. But ns this is generally con*
ceeded as a defect, wo will not enlarge
upon it here. These, in brief, nre the
reaBons why Canadians oppose annexation.
To theso there must be added tho
faot that of late, in Canada, thore has
grown up a powerful witidoie to annexation, in a healthful aspiration for
a national life. The desire for a Canadian nationality haa taken root and
has become a widespread sentiment; it
is watered by every disadvantage of
colonial connection, and every gust of
insult toughens ita sapling »trougth.
Aa hus been stated, thore arts thoao in
Oanada wholook forward to annexation.
The glory of united greatness, together
with tho boon of continental free trado
and assured peace, aro no moan motives
tu union. But since continental freo
trade and undisturbed prace aru almoat
certain to exist boj-woen Oaoadu and
tho United Statea without annexation',
and becauso uf tho reasons above stated
itis probable that thu Canadian nnnex-
Rti-ni-t will exert littlo influence in the
determining of Canada's future.

Toronto, November, 1889.
tool; place, the influx of Americans
into Canada would soon bring about
a revision of our laws to suit thoir
wishes', as it would not be long
before thoy would hold the
casting voto in our elections, and
consequently control our legislation.
4. In the light oi anticipated dangers from the negro question, 1 >osc ei>
forcoinent of law, and Io* order <-f
marital regulations, the Canadian seems
to have good reasons fur looking shyly
at proposals fur annexation; but still
another great national danL'cr demands
our notice The danger this time is
tintiotpated from tho great and ever*
increasing number of _' _..l:..t, anarchist, and such like organizations iu
the States. That theae societies, the
mad boast of whose members is to destroy all peace und order nnd make
security of person and property a recollection of tho past, have a pretty Btrong
footing in tho "Land of the Free," ia
proven by tho Hay market nnd Now
York troubles, to say nothing of lesser
disturbances It is often remarked',
however, that those characters nro not
of American production, but are tho
offcastings of oppressed and criminal
European poor, who, having been suddenly thrown into thn zenith of political freedom, Ilred with recollections.of
past tyranny, havo used their new
power in tho pursuit of ill-advised
schemes. BUoh Bialemeuis do not invalidate this argument, because Canadians hnve nothing to do with the
origin of anarchist doctrines in the
States, they hnvo merely to ascertain
if such destructive elements nru there,
and if they are to govern themselves
accordingly. Further, if tho leaders
and majority of thia class sro foreigners, nevertheless, it is beyond denial
that they find much sympathy and
support iu native Americans, and this
expression of sympathy is in no degree
abating. Again, even supposing the
republic has displayed such nsaimilat-
ing power as to convert tho worst of
foreiL'n agitators into good citizen**,
yet it remains a fact thnt to day sees
thnt mnrvollous digesting power over*
strained and no longer able to efficient
ly do ita work.
5, The anglophobia, which has
long been smouldering but has lately
burst out into activity iu aomo places
in the republic, hns aroused in almoat
overy Canadian heart a spirit of reaent*
ment, which renders annexation for
B'uiiu timo out uf tho question; for the
people of Canada revolt against joining
a country that delights tu parade its
hatred for England, or allows its political parties to rival one with another in evincing tho greatest enmity
to Britain. Canadians know full well
tho detrimental influence John Bull
has often exercised iu their affairs, yot
the   traditions  and  loving bonds by
-ltii-™!ilii™ of Kallnny Ily-Law.
In the supreme court on Saturday
on the application of Oapt. Jno. Irving
a rule tiled to quash thu Sinnich railway by-law was granted by tho chief
justice. The grounds on which the
application waB granted are eiiiiniBt'-tted
in fifteen paragraphs, The first sel
forth by Mr. Theo. Davio waa that tho
mayor had un iut.rcst in thu Saanich
railway company and was therefore
diMjualili.nl from acting us mayor; that
the mayor having an interest in the
benefits of the by-law, is insensible on
its face; that the by-law dues not comply with auction 06 of tho municipal
act of 1889; that ft railway is nut an in
du.try to whieh exemption of water
rales muy-be granted; iluttth. by-law
exceeds tho powers of thu municipal
act silieu it grants money and PXuUipls
from taxation. Thu other objections
raised cover the same ground as .tated
above. Mr. E. V. IJodwell appeared
