Array THE   J3AJ3LTT
British Columbian
Volume 7,
Mr. Alex. Beoo, of Crofter immigration fame, is
indefatigable in his efforts to bring desirable classes of
immigrants to tins province. He is now formulating
a scheme which, receiving the necessary co-operation
of would-be employers, should go for toward solving
the servant girl problem so far as British Columbia's
requirements iu that direction are concerned. Mr.
Begg's plan for securing desirable, "carefully selected,
female servants from Scotland," according to the outline with which wo havo been favored, is about us follows: Lists of would-be employers will first be obtained in the various cities in the province, upon
blank forms stating name, address and profession of
employer, nature of service required, age of servant
preferred, and amount of wages und term of service
guaranteed. This list of employers must lie certified
to as containing only respectable persons, either by
the mayor or resident clergymen, as a guarantee to
the servant girl that she will not lie brought into any
disreputable place. For the protection of employers
every servant is, of course, fournished with unexceptionable.recommendations. The last, but not least
important, condition is that employers are required
to advance ubout $80 to defray the. fare and travelling
expenses of their prospective female sorvant, the servant herself agreeing, and giving a promlaory note
for the greater security therefor, to refund the
sum advanced, from her wages, in six or seven monthly instalments.
Mr. Begg boa receivod a good deal of encouragement iu hia undertaking in Victoria, a number of parties in that city having already arranged witli hiin to
secure domestio help by the plan outlined above. Mr.
•Ino, Sprott, Immigration agent, etc, will be ablo to
furnish more particular information to purticB in this
city ami vicinity who may be desirous to avail themselves of Mr, Begg's sehemo.to obtain femalo servants
from Scotland. In two or three weeks Mr. Begg «x-
peets to start fur the euat, und on Ilia way will stop nt
the various cities of the province, including Westminster, and thus mako up the full liat of servant girla required for tho province at thia time, so that they may
all come out together in charge, of a matron, and each
girl on arrival go direct to the house of hor employer
from tho railway station,
Thoso who are in need of good domestic help—and
we believe the need ia increasing in thia city ami elsewhere throughout the province—ami hnvo grown
tired of the "ways thot nre dork nud the tricks that
ure vain for wliich the heathon Chinee is' peculiar,"
oould not do bettor, we should imagine, than avail
themselves of the opportunity wliich Mr. Begg's limited immigration schomo oilers to supply a "long folt
want." There eon be very littlo doubt that
iu caaea where servant girls ore preferred to tlie facile
and pig-toiled Mongolian, the class of domestics which
Mr. Begg will be enabled to furnish will juat about fill
the bill. Sueh, nicotine, is the perversity of human
nature, ond tho altering power of circumstances upon
ooseS in the "wild und woolly west" especially, that
soma will prefer, and reasonably too, perforce, wc
might soy, to retain Yip Sing oa boss of the kitchen
or "maid of oil work" in preference,to tiio moat extra
Biiperfino female domestic help obtainable on the footstool. In spite of this foet, however, there must bo a
considerable number iu thia ua well its iu the other
cities of tho province whose cireumatoncca render it
not only proper but desirable that thoy should exchange their, for many reasons, unsatisfactory Chinese
domestic help for the more skilled, cleanly and faithful services of fotniile servants of the Caucasian persuasion; If being a real benefactor to one's raco, and
noting tho patriot in a small but substantial way towards one's adopted or nativo country, counts for
any thing, too, here ore additional good uud cogent
reasons for assisting, at no nltinute personal loss, n
worthy and valuable class, of immigrants, for thoir
own and this country's good, to reach our shores.
Every individual thus brought into the province would
moat likely prove u lasting acquisition to the country,
which can hardly bo truthfully affirmed of the questionable Mongolian immigrant, whoso $.10 poll tax ou
getting through the bars represents tho bulk of tho
Contribution to the country's wealth that ench of the
yellow horde would make in n live year's sojourn.
It may be objected that femnlo servants brought
into the province uncording to the sehome proposed
would probably not remain with their employers in
m my cases after the term specified in the original
agreement hud expired, but would strtightway tako
unto themselves husbands from among the people of
tlie  land.    But the employers wonld not be out in

Number 169
such casoB, mm perhaps mnny a worthy young bachelor farmer would by this means secure a fit aud desirable helpmate, who would ussist him materially lo
grow np prosperously and successfully with the country, iiiBtcnd of, sick and discouraged, running amuck
amongst his neighbors with the deadly Winchester
and perpetrating murders and suicide, Under different social conditions in the rural districts, thu whole
community would undoubtedly not be so alarmingly
frequently shocked by such sickening tragedies as the
recent deplorable event ut Chilliwack, and the Jones-
Durant horror of about a year ago, also occurring at
an up-river settlement, the main particulars of whicli
will be tolerably fresh in the minds of many of our
readers. Ab we have intimated, we believe that tho
introduction of such immigrants as Mr. Begg proposes to bring into the province should be encouraged,
for their worth as female domestics, and the faot that
as such they would displace the uot altogether desirable
Mongolian in any reBpect, for their prospective, almost certain, value as helpmeets for a large number of
our young farmers and settlers, and, we might add,
on general principles, which may lie taken to include
overy other possible reason that might suggest itself
to tho reader.
THE CHILLIWACK TRAGEDY.
A correspondent of The Columbian, writing under
dnte tif dun. 14th, says: "Our community has been
shocked to-day by tho announcement of a double murder and suicide, The facts, as far as developed, oro on
follows: Goorgo Rutherford a man about 38 yoars of
age, living alone 011 his pre-emption claim about six
miles aouth from the lauding, has boon sick with Influenza the pnat week. On Sunday he got a little
better, and went to his nearest neighbor's, Burrows
Irwin, uml told him he was discouraged living alone,
uml had a mind to sell ou1: uml lenvo here, blithe
finally weut homo again. The next night, Monday,
ho weut to another neighbor's, John Sogers, who lived
by himself, uud evidently culled him to the door uud
shot him. He then wont tn another neighbor's, Edward
Hull, found him in bod ami shot him uud afterwards
struck him on the heat I with the gun. He then wont
to Irwin's, where he had boon in the habit of buying
butter, and aaked bim if ho tried to poison him by
putting poison hi the butter. Ou Irwin assuring him
that he did not, he said: * All right; I'll tako your
word for it,' ami put away his gun uud sturted for
home. Buying, 'I have juat killed two men, aud intend
to kill myself.'
"This morning word was sent out of the murder,
and the neighborhood turned out to arrest Rutherford, but fouml he had shot himself iu a woodshed at
his own place, tho ball going iu at his chin and out ut
the top of his head. A letter waa found iu his house,
stating, among other thinga, thnt hia neighbors wished
to poison him, und that lie wished his property to go
to ids friend Luidluw. It aoems the poor follow wna
driven mini by the influenza. The mnn Sognra boa
been hero about three years, and ia a Swede. Eil ward
Hal! was one nf the lirst residents of Chilliwack, having como here with his ful her, William Hull, inthe
year ISllt). He hus mnny friends here to mourn his
loss. The bodies uro till loftus they wero found thia
morning, awaiting the soronor from Westminster."

DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Tbo speech from tho throne delivered by His Excellency, the Governor-General, at the opening of parliament yesterdny, was os follows:
Honorable Gentlemen of the Senato, Gentlemen of
the Houao of Commons:
In culling you together again for the consideration
of public affairs, I may fairly congratulate you on a
continuance of the progress and prosperity of the
countiy.
During tho recess I visited Manitoba and the Northwest territories and British Columbia, and everywhere
I found myself received with the loyalty and gootl will
which 2 have learned to be characteristic of Canada.
A comparison of my own observations with those of
my predecessors snows clearly the great progress
whicli has marked this part of the Dominion, in the
settlement of the country ami in the developement of
its great agricultural capabilities, of its mineral wealth
nnd of its other natural resources.
In consequence of tho repeated seizures.by the'
cruisers of the United States navy of Canadian vessels,
while employed iu the capture of seals in that part of
the northern Paoific ocean, known as Behring Sea, my
government has strongly represented to her majesty s
ministers tho necessity of protecting our shipping,
whilo engaged in their lawful calling, as well as of
guarding against the assumption by any nation of exclusive proprietary rights in those waters. I feel confident that those representations have hud duo weight,
and I hope to be enabled during tho present session to
assure you that all diil'erenccs ou thia question are in
the course of satisfactory adjustment.
Having observed the close attention which has recently boon given by the Imperial authorities, and on
the continent of Europe, to the improvements in the
methods of catching, curing and packing tish, I deemed it expedient to cause 11 commission to be sent to
Scotland ami Holland to examine und roport upon thin
subject during the fishing season. The report of tho
delegates will be laid before you. It will, I am sure,
give our fishermen moat valuable in formation mul instruction na to the best means of improving and developing this important industry.
My ministers' hnvo carefully considered the difficulties nlte-li surround'the administration of the rights
of the Dominion iu its foreshores, harbors, lakes and
rivers, ami a measure will be submitted to you tor
removing any uncertainty ns to the respective rights
of the Domiiuon und of the provinces, and for preventing confusion in the titles thereto,
Tiie report of the royal commission on labor, which
was laid before yon during the Inst session, has been
distributed throughout the country. I have reason to
believe that the iu formation which it contains will be
found eminently useful in suggesting improvement*- in
the administration of the laws which affect the working classes. Measures for the- amendment of thesr-
lawa, so fnr ns thoy como within the jurisdiction of
the parliament of Canada, will be submitted for your
consideration.
The early termination of the acts of incorporation
of the principal bunking institutions of the Dominion
necessitates n review of our present system of banking
and uu adjustment of the terms under which the
charters of those companies should bo renewed. Your
attontion will bo drown to this important subject.
Certain amendments to tho acta relating to the
Northwest territories, calculated to facilitate the administration of affairs in that region, ua also a bill
further to promote the efficiency of the Northwest
mounted police, will bo submitted for your consideration;
Measures will bo laid before you relating to bills of
exchange tint] promissory notes; to improvo the law
respecting 'patents of invention and discovery; to
amend the food adulteration not and lhc lnw respecting the inland revenue; to uineud also the aet respecting the gcologicnl and natural histories and survey of
Cnnnda. ami to provide for better organization of the
national printing establishments.
Gentlemen of the Houao of Commons :
The accounts for tho past year will bo laid bofore
you. It will lie found that the estimates of revenue
have boon realized und that after having fully provided for the various public services of the country, a
substantial surplus will remain.
The cstimutes for next year have boon framed with
a tiuo regard to the requirements of the public service.
Hon. Gentlemen of the Senate ; Gentlemen of the
Houso of Commons:
1 commit theso weighty matters and nil others
which mny eome before you to your earnest consideration' and 1 rely upou your wisdom ami prudence to
deal with them in the manner which, under divine
providence, mny provo most conducive to the happiness and prosperity of Canada.
His excellency then handed tiio parchment roll to
his secretary, Hon. Capt, Colville, who in turn hand
ed it to tho speaker. His excellency ami his distinguished suite then withdrew from the chamber. Tim
members returned through tho library and other passages to the commons chamber.
Tho speakor announced that writs had been issued
during recess to fill the vacancies whioh had been
created by death and resignation and named tho gentlemen who had beon elected in their stead. They
were then introduoed in tha usual formal manner.
