[From Our Own Correspondent.]
Wednesday'*! Proceedings.
Victoria, Mar. 5.—Mr. Speaker took
the chair at 2 p.m.
Mr. Orr presented a petition from
James Morrison, praying that a trial be
granted hiin respecting certaiu lauds
purchased by him at a tax Bale.
Mr. Cunningham presented a petition
from Wm. Ralf and A. St. George Ham-
endey, against E. E, Olcott's olaim at
Hill's Bar, Fraser River.
Col. Baker presented the report of the
standing committee on railways stating
tbat the rules had been complied
with in regard to the Okanagon & Koo
tenay Railway Bill.   Report-received.
Col, Baker moved the second reading
of the Crow's Nest & Kootenay Railway
Bill. Bill read a second time and committed. Bill reported complete with
amendments.
The Houae then weut into argument
over the Speaker's rulings on the question of private bills, Mr. Croft opened
the battle. ' He Baid the Speaker's opinion ought to carry more weight than
that of moat of the ordinary members of
the House, yet, in hia opinion, if the
ruling waa sustained it would be a great
hardship to persons who had to oppose
those bills it they had to conform to the
requirements of the ruling. This matter had been for a year approaching the
Eresent climax. He thought it would
b an injustice to stop thoae bills going
through. The debate was maintained
with tlie greatest vigor fov nearly an
hour. A show of hands gave fourteen
to sustain the chair and nine against.
Ruling sustained,
Hon. John Robson presented a supplementary return of the names and
places of residence of collectors of revenue paid by commission, rate of same
and date of authority therefor.
Mr. Anderson moved the second reading of the Wide Tires Act.
>n being put to the vote the motion
for a second reading was lost.
Mr. Semlin moved the second reading
of the Cattle Ranges Bill. The mover
entered into a detailed and very interesting description of the difficulties with
which owners of cattle ranges have to
contend. Bill read a second time, com-,
mitted, Mr. Haslam in the chair, report
of the committee adopted, Bill read a
third time and passed.
Mr. Martin asked the suspension of
the standing rules and orders that he
might introduce the following resolution:
That the practice which hns obtained
in this House since Confederation, with
respect to parties appearing before the
Private Bills Committee in support of
or against any Private Bill, Bhall be
allowed to prevail during thiB session.
Adopted unanimously. Hon. Mr. Turner presented the returns.
Mr. Orr moved the adoption of the report of the committeo on the Vancouver
Street Railway and Electric Companies
Bill. Report adopted. BUI read a third
time and passed.
House went into adjourned committee
on the New Westminater Street Railway Company's Bill, Mr. Thompson iu
the chair.
Mr. Cunningham said that he did not
wish any strife or contention to arise
over thiB Ohinese restriction clause, and
he had no desire to bring about a conflict of authoiity in the city of Westminster over the Chinese question. The
law in that city states that no Chineae
Bhall be employed to work on the streets.
He had been sustained in hiB view of
this matter by the electors at the meeting held at Westminster on Saturday
night last. They had fully supported
the action he had already taken upon
the question and it was their desire that
he pursue the same line of policy. What
he was now doing was in the interests
of harmony and to prevent expensive
litigation and the conflict of parties.
The Ohinese question as here treated
applies to work done ou public highways.
Mr. Martin said he considered it the
duty of every member In this House to
conform to tne wishes of a majority of
his constituents. Mr. Cunningham had
been asked to introduce the Chinese
clause in every bill and he had refused.
It was not fair to make flesh of one and
fish of another. Mr. Martin then read
a resolution, moved by Mr. Scoullar,
seconded by Mr. B. Douglas, that he
Btated had been carried at the meeting
on Saturday evening ut Westminster,
and asked if this looked aB if the honorable member from that city was acting
in accordance with the spirit of thut
resolution. He (the speaker) had supported the Chinese clause for years and
years. And If they have to bo employed
in one work why not In another.
Mr. Cunningham stated that thiB resolution which Mr. Martin hnd read had
been voted down five to one at the
meeting. That resolution had been introduced to defeat the objects for wliich
the meeting was held. It was very unfair ou Mr. Martin's part to parado this
defeated resolution before the House,
Mr. Martin—Not at all, it's public
property; It's beeu published in tho
newspapers.
Mr, Cunningham—Well, we'll see
about that if you'll juBt wait a minuto.
I'll get the paper and show you exactly
what happened. (Laughter. The honorable member left the House in search
of the newspaper.)
Mr. Croft said he would All in the
time while awaiting Mr. Cunningham's
return by stating his opinions on the
subject. He thought it would be a great
injustice to insert that clause in the
British Columbia Mills, Timber and
Trading Co.'s Bill, as they have to compete with other companies who are privileged to employ Chinese labor, auch
as the great milling companies along the
coast, and this company would, of
course, be gravely handicapped In Its
competition with those institutions.
Mr. Cunningham here returned with
copies of the Columbian and a paper
callod Truth published, he said, in New
Westminster and opposed to him in
every particular. He read the section
dealing with the resolution read by Mr,
Martin. This account entirely refuted
that gentleman's resolution and statements, The reason why the meeting
had asked him to withhold that clauso
was because they thought It would not
do to ask the House to support so sweeping a measure and the Insertion of the
clause would conflict with the wishes of
the council and the public*.
Mr. Mason asked If thiB action was
taken with the sanction of the publio
and of the company.
Mr. Cunningham—*" With their approval. Tho president of the company
and two shareholders were present at
the meeting and had Intimated their ap
proval of the measures taken."
Hon. Mr. Robson said it would be
rather a doubtful action to insert this
clauso in one bill and refrain from doing
so in another, He thought auch action
would be contrary to the wishes of the
people.
Mr. Cunningham aaid that the promoters of the Bill had told hiin they did
not care if a hundred and one restriction clauses were placed in the bill.
Mr. Mason said he thought this
Chinese question bad been killed three
years ngo but he was surprised to aee it
bobbing up serenely in lota of different
bills. He would ask the mover to withdraw his resolution regarding clause 18
and others relating to this question; if
the honorable member did not do so he
would ask all the members of this House
to sit down on this measure and crush
it as it was inconsistent, un-British and
he might even aay unchristian in its
spirit.
Hon. Mr. Beaven declared himself
widely at variance with the remarks of
of the last speaker and said the measure
was by no means unchristian, nor was it
by no means new as it had come up lie-
fore the House repeatedly. Mr. Cunningham was only following out the
lines of action laid in 1884 and ns the
representative of the wants of the city
of New Westminster he ought to be listened to. There was nothing unfair
about the insertion of that clause into
their charter as that is the way they
carry on their work. Their municipal
law says that no Chinese shall work on
their Btreets; surely they have a right to
manage their own affairs to suit themselves. He hoped the honorable member for Yale would change his opinions
on this subject and see hiB way clear to
supporting the measure as now pro-
posed, |
Hon. John Robson wanted to know
how the House could apply this great
question of opposition to Chinese lubor
to one matter and not in an equal degree to another. The municipalities have
very decided views on this question
until their own interestB are concerned
when they very soon change their opinions and adopt the cheapest way out of
the problem. When their own corns
are pinched they seethe matter in quite
u different light. He knew of one corporation that hnd two bidB for a piece of
work, one from white labor the other
from Chineie, and the lattor was only
half the amount of the former. Pocket
being thus deeply concerned the decision
wns not far distant. The municipalities
are not faithful or loyal to their opinions
on the question of Chinese employment.
Where the C. P. R. decided to build the
branch lino to New Westminster from
the present junction, he nnd several
other gentlemen had taken a firm stand
iu opposition to the employment of
Chinese lubor on that work, and as a
result the population of New WestminBter rose en masse, held indignation
meetings and made wild inflammatory
speeches against the members of this
house who held like views with himself,
and iu the feverish excitement of the
time burned in effigy himself and several other opposers of tho Chinese, and
the leading spirit in those doings nnd
who is quite a prominent figure at all
such meetings was one of those who
bore a very prominent pnrt in the meeting at WestminBter last Snturday night.
So that It waa easy to be seen wheu it
suited the purpose of certain people they
were very strongly opposed to tne employment of Chinese} but on other oc
casions they were just the other wny.
Paradoxical as it might sound he would
bov that after he had been burned in
effigy he had lost a great deal of his
warmth on this subject (laugther.)
Many people were always very strongly
opposed to Chinese labor until it came
home to their own pockets and then
their opinions changed with wonderful
celerity and pointed directly in the opposite direction. Ho had never once
changed his views on this subject, and
he was Btill strongly of the opinion that
the Chinese were a most undesirable
class and were not wanted in this country at all.   (Applause.)
Mr. Cunningham said he wna very
sorry the Honorable the Premier waa
disinclined to accept his explanation
about that unfortunate effigy business.
However, he could only reiterate whnt
he hnd said before that that outrage was
the work of a mob of low ruffians for
whose disgraceful and riotous proceedings the reputation of the city hud to
suffer. But Westminster has changed
amazingly sinco thnt regrettable occurrence ; her population has mote than
doubled, her trade and prospects nre
vastly increased and he thought that
the memory of thnt affront had been
well-nigh obliterated. What he was
anxious to avoid was a conflict of opinion between the people and tho corporation in this matter and he did not wish
to embarrass the House in any way and
embroil them in the dispute. He took
very strong exception to Mr. Mason's
assertion that his measure was unchristian. What could be more at variance with Christianity than the degrading of white labor by competition
with Chineae labor ?
Mr. Mason here explained that he
meant thnt the measure was not just or
fnir,
Mr. Cunningham—"Well, if I had not
a better idea ns to whnt was intended by
Christianity than that, I myself could
wUh the Chinese in -—"
Hon Mr. Davie—"In hell" (roars of
laughter).
Mr. Martin(toMr. Cunningham) "Oh,
come now, you employ them yourself,
you know, so you needn't talk." (Laughter).
Mr. Cunningham continuing amid n
storm of jocular remarks, laughter and
coiifusiou, wns at lust heard to sny "nnd
can you deny that the presence of those
Chinese quarters "
Mr. Martin—"Oh, that's too thin,"
(Laughter).
Mr. Martin then rose and said the
honorable member (Mr. Cunningham)
could not deny that he employed Chinese labor himself and it was surely no
more degrading or contaminating for
him to bo employ them as for tho Province or a company or any other citizen.
"You know that it the case and you can't
deny it. Why should not thiB bill (tho
B, 0. Milla and Trading Co) have tho
same clauso inserted as the street railway ono hnd."
Mr. Cunningham explained thnt' It
wns not the employer who wns degraded
or contaminated aB his honorable friend
had inferred, bnt the whito labor brought
Into competition with the Chinese,
Mr. Martin—"Oh, your're getting
round the question now."   (Laughter).
Mr. Smith said that he had presumed
the vices mentioned as a concomitant of
Chinese life amongst us including gambling. If that were tho case he could tell
the honorable members that there was
Just ns much gambling dono nt hotels
:cpt hy white men ns could be fouud In
nny of the Chinoso dens. He did not
employ Chinese nnd never hnd, stilt he
believed thnt if a man wished to employ
Chinoso he had a perfect right tu do so.
If tho peoplo of New Westininster are
so strongly ugninst the Chinoso the best
wny would ho to leavo it to themselves
to settle. ChlneBO conld be seen on the
streets every day at some work or othor.
The sections proposed to tie ndded to
the bill wore lost by an overwhelming
majority, only threo members voting
for their insertion,
Mr. Cunningham immediately uftor
tho voto had boon tnken rose and moved
tliat thu committee rise nnd report progress nud nsk leave to sit again.
Hon. Mr. Pooley In flohie agitation
rose and demanded whnt he meant by
such n motion. Did he wnnt to kill tho
bill? if nol he hnd better ex plain bis
motives.
Mr. Cunningham—"I put thnt motion that 1 might have an opportunity to
add a clause sont me this morning by
thu Mayor of New Westmlnater."
Mr. Pooley—"Well, the Mnyor of New
Westminster is not going to rule this
House."
Mr. Duck—"I think the honorable
member for Westminstor City has a perfect right to move as he hud.
Hon. Mr. Beaven concurred with Mr.
Duck.
On being put to the vote tho motion
for the committee to rise carried.
The House then took up the further
report of the Municipalities Act Amendment Bill. Debate adjourned till Monday next.
Mr. Cunningham moved the adoption
of the report on the Westminster Electric Liglit und und Power Co. Report
adopted, bill" read a third time and
passed.
Mr. Duck moved the second reuding

Ottawa, Mar. 6.—There is much excitement here over the proclamation
issued yesterday by President Harrison
regarding a resolution us to the Behring
sea fisheries. Members of Parliament
condemn the proclamation, and one of
them aaid to day: "Just at this time,
when negotiations are going on fora
peaceful settlement of the matter, the
issue of the proclamation looks like a
slap In the face of Canada. No wonder
that public indignation ia aroused. I
confess that tho Canadian Government
could not de anything practicable in
the matter, but they thoroughly deserve
censure for their lukewarnniess throughout on this question of the Behring Sea,
which is one of the most vital importance to Canada."

Ottawa Notes.
Ottawa, March 5.—The Conservative
workingmen banquetted Sir John MacDouald to-mght. A number of Cabinet
Ministers, members of Parliament and
prominent citizens were present. Sir
John said that the labor legislation was
coming dowu this session.
In the House of Commons to-night,
Sir J. S. D. Thompson suid, in answer to
Hon. Peter Mitchell, that the Government were not alarmed at the proclamation just made by President Harrison
concerning Behrings Sea. It was only a
usual proclamation authorized by the
United States Congress, and hod no
bearing on the negotiations now going
on at Washington.
The civil suit instituted by the half-
breed, Bremner, against General Middle-
ton for recovery of furs has been withdrawn, Sir J. S. D. Thompson announced
in tho House.
An ndjounment was made at 9 o'clock
on account of four Cabinet Ministers
being sick.
Mr. Charlton's bill to secure a better
observance of the Lord's day was read
the first time to-day. Hia measure prohibits tho printing or issuing of Sunday
newspapers. Mr. Charlton drew attention to the position in thiB regard occupied by the News-Advertiser and. the
Colonist.
It is likely that the Middleton scandal
will be settled by voting Bremner $1,500.
Sir J. S. D. Thompson said regarding
the appointment of Queen's Consul by
the provinces, that the Government
would not take dictation from the lattor.
He suid that commissions would, however, be issued to thoae appointed.
Colonel Prior asked what the Government was doing in regard to the Esquimalt fortifications. Sir A. P. Caron answered that the matter was now the
subject of correspondence with the Imperial Government, and that when this
was concluded he would give a definite
nnswer.    * _____
Greatly Honored
Washington, March 4.—Colonel Perry
S. Heath, the well known correspondent
and author of "A HooBier in Russia,"
has received an invitation from the
Russian Government and an offer of a
royal pass to visit Russian Siberia and
to accompany the Duke Alexis, Commander of the Russian army and the
heir apparent to the throne, on a tour
through Siberia next summer. The Invitation is extended to Colonel Heath so
as to afford him au opportunity of inspecting and presenting to the people of
tho United States and the world a true
statement of the management of the Siberian prisoners and the exile system.
Colonel Heath has the invitation under
consideration and is disposed at the outset to accept it, but has not yet positively decided to do so.
OTTAWA NOTES.
Hat  Maker* Want a   Speclflo Duty   on
Imported Goodi.—General Middle-
ton-Little Fur Deal.
{from Our Own Correspondent.)
Ottawa, Mar. 0,—An influential deputation representing the straw goods
and hat manufactory industries of Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia waited
upon the Hon. Ministers of finance and
customs in reference to the duty on foreign importation of gooda similar to
their productions. They aaked that the
present ad valorem tariff of 23 per cent
be charged to a speclflo duty.
Hon. Peter Mitchell referred to the
charges brought against General Middle-
ton re tho confiscation of furs in the
Northwest, and objected to the appointment of the committee of investigation
suggested by Sir John Macdonald; He
did not question the respectability of
the members, but he wanted on that '
committee men of backbone who stand
bv tlieir convictions. The appointment
oi the committee was left over. The
House is now in committee of supply.
The Boat Found.
The fishing boat belonging to John
Wagner, stolen from the beach near the
Woolen Mills en Tuesday night, was
found at Brownsville last evening a ahort
distance above the landing. In the boat
were two pelcoB of board which were
evidently usod as paddles to work the
craft across the river, ns there were
neither oars nor rowlocks on board. It Is
now believed by the police that the
three vagrants ordered to leave the city
on Tuesday took this boat to get across
theriver, and being pressed for time did
not wait to borrow a pair of oars. Wagner is delighted to recover his vessel
again, nnd ho has forgiven the rascals
who made so free with it, aa he had
given It up for lost. 2

VOLUME VIII-No. 29.
THURSDAY EVENING, MARCH 6. 1810,
ON THE ALTAR OF CONSISTENCY.
Ma-CuNNiNn ham's anti-Chinese clause
to the Westminster Electric Street Rull-
way Bill did not meet the views of the
great majority of the legislators, boing
thrown out yesterday by a vote of nineteen to three. The Legisluture us a
whole, seemed determined to side with
Mr. Martin, and read Mr. Cunningham
a practical lesson on the text "Consistency, thon art a jewel," notwithstanding
thut Mr. Cunningham waa armed with
a resolution froui the city that he has
the honor to represent, supporting him
iu his apparently inconsistent course.
Inconsistent it was, in the widest sense,
of course, inasmuch us Mr. Cunningham, as a member of the
Legisluture made no attempt to insert
a similar clause iu the many other private bills on behalf of various provincial
, enterprises that have come before the
House at the present session; but then
Mr. Cunningham had the very good
excuse that he was looking out simply
for his own constituency uud trying to
prevent future trouble through a conflict
of authority between the Corporation
and the Street Railway Company.
Moreover, Mr. Cunningham was backed
up by resolutions both from a public
meeting of Iub constituents and from
the City Council of Westminster, and it
has come to a pretty puss if, by availing
ourselves of all the ordinary means
of making known our deBires in a certain matter, we cnu make no more impression upon nn obdurate and conceited
Assembly than we have succeeded in
doing iu this instance. Verily, what do
these legislators want? Must wo "mouth
aud runt"—tear our hair—indignnto—
wake 'em up with a sharp stick—before
they will realize that we mean what
we sny and know what we want?
There must be a reason for everything,
and we are moved to ask Why Ib this
thus? What is the "accursed thing" in
the camp that has caused ua to fall before our enemies In this matter aud given
the pig-tailed heathen an advantage
ovor us? Is it because the Royal City
hns not been truly iu earnest and unanimous in her protest, or because of a flaw
in her record, or by reason of a too
potent pro-Chinese and pro-corporation
Influeuce being brought to hour upou the
bulk of the legislators at tho Capital?
There may be something iu all theae
suggestions. It may be also, that Mr.
Cunningham's co-patriots in the House
didn't give him credit for single - minded-
ness, any more than they did for consistency, in his energetic endeavor to
have au auti-Chinese clause inserted
into the particular bill in question; but,
if so, they must have judged him by
their own low standard.
But what will the Hon. Premier say
for himself? The impression conveyed
by Mr, Cunningham's remarks at the
meeting on Saturday night was to the
effect that, if he didn't exnetly hold the
honorable leader of the Government in
IiIb hand (in this matter), ns represented
by the genial editor and caricaturist of
Grip while in this city laBt full, at lenst the
Grand Vizier of the Province was holding
the "bottle and sponge" for him (Mr.
Cunningham) in his mnnful, single-
handed fight againat a soulless corporation and the "yellow horde from the
canneries." But a perusal of the interesting report, on another page, of the
spirited debate in the Houso yesterday
on Mr. Cunningham's amendment will
go to show that the Premier, instead of
acting the part of a faithful second,
when the battle was at its fiercest metaphorically threw the sponge in the air
aud smashed the bottle over Mr. Cunningham's devoted head. Perhaps Mr.
Cunningham can explain how this erratic proceeding came about ? The Premier's uttitude on the anti-Chinese
clause question, supposing he had not
given any promise to Mr. Cunningham iu the mutter, is easily explainable and hardly to be wondered at.
As the honorable gentleman reminded
the House, ho was once-und' not so
many yenrs ago—ruthlessly and cruelly
burned In effigy iu this city, because nn
anti-Chinese clause whicli he hud takon
a prominent part lu having inserted in
a certain hill—with a fair presumption
that itwould be agreeable ami beneficial
to this constituency—had perversely and
unexpectedly acted as a boomerang, A
"burned child dreads the fire," it Is
said, and the Hon. Premier facetiously
expressed the samo idea when he aaid
that, puradoxlcal as it might seem, ever
siuco the burning In efllgy episode he
had experienced a lessening of warmth
ou the nnti-Chinese question.
ered a most ample test of strength
had been proved can huve been no less
gratifying to the travelling public than
to the engineers responsible for the carrying out of ao great a scheme.
Tbe main feature of Intorest iB the extraordinary spans (for a rigid structure)
of a third of a mile in length, each of
which is made by two cantilevers of 680
feet long, united by 350 feet of girder.
The piers are of immense height, and
the rnilrond is carried high above the
sides of the Forth valley. Tlie designing and carrying out of the work is due
to Sir John Fowler and Mr. (now Sir)
B. Baker, C. E., and since the commencement of operations iu 1685 but
one mishap of a serious nature has happened, although from time to time as
many as 34 workmen have lost their
lives during the five years the bridge
has been under construction. Considering the immense dangers incurred and
the number of persona employed during
that time, these figures appear remark
ably low. The wind pressure on the
structure is calculated never .to exceed
56 lbs. per foot, amounting to 2,600 tons
on each span, and the rolling load 600
tons, never more than two trains being
permitted on the bridge at one time,
Speaking at a meeting of the representatives of various railroad companies
at Sheffield, on June 1st laBt, Mr. Leea
Margatroyd gave some very interesting
figures relative to the bridge. Up to
that time 42,000 tons of steel had been
used on the work, whilst at least 8,000,-
000 rivets had been placed. In addition,
12 caissons, each larger than the largest
gasometer, had been launched in the
same way ob warships and had been
turned into position, whilst to the end
of the year 1688 the cost had been £2,-
588,328, which of necessity gives but an
altogether inadequate idea of the total
expenditure, the work having been
pressed forward with the utmost energy
since that time.
On February Hth of laBt year the only
serious accident during the whole pro-
gresB of construction occurred. Upon
that day, a naphtha lamp exploding in
the engine house on Inchgarvie Island,
the building, together with the time
office, the smithy, fitting and paint
shops, were all burned down. In spite
of thiB untoward event, however, the
engineers succeeded in carrying out
their contract on time, and the result
ahould certainly add another interesting
chapter to Mr. Smiles' "Lives of the
Engineers."
RAILWAYS IN THE HOLY LAND.
THE GREAT  BRIDGE.
With tho greatest rejoicing and in the
presence of a vast multitude of people,
the greut bridge over tho Firth of Forth
in Scotland was opened hy the Prince of
Wales, assisted by a number of distinguished personages, on the 4th instant.
In referring to this triumph of engineering skill, a recent authority has declared
that the bridge is "the greatest work of
" its kind in the world." Whether so
sweeping and far-reaching an eulogy is
deserved is possibly a matter of controversy, but most certainly it may be asserted, without fear of contradiction,
that among tho many monuments of
man's Ingenuity and skill which civilization has seen, the Forth bridge is one of
the most wonderful. The construction
was practically completed in October of
last year, and only a few dnys ago we recorded the successful test aa to itB solidity. Upon that occasion two trains
weighing in the aggregate. over two
thousand tons were placed upon the
structure at Hie same time, and inasmuch us the bridge will never be called
upon to bear any strain such as that,
and that the Government officials consid-
Tiie great modern clvililer and leveller, the railway, ib no respecter of persons or places, nor, quite often, of rights,
it might be added. Wherever a reason*
nble prospect offers for multiplying the
potent and seductive dollar, thither will
the ever extending belt of steel insinuate
itaelf, preparing its sinuous shining
track for the panting car of commerce.
Railways for Palestine, observes an exchange, have been discussed in a speculative way for a quarter of n century,
but none have been built, probably because of the fear that there would not
be sufficient traffic to secure a profitable
return for the somewhat costly construction necessitated by the rugged
character of the country to be traversed.
But the railway, which almost seems
like a sacriligiouB intrusion iuto the
famous old land, seems to be in the near
future. A syndicate is being organized
in the United statea to build a line from
Port Said, at the northern terminus of
the Suez canal, to Damascus by way of
the Jordan valley. The chief stations
ou the route between those points would
be Hebron, Rama, Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Jericho and Nazareth. As the proposed road, which will be little more
than two hundred miles in length, is expected to derive a large part, perhaps
the moat, of its income from tourist
travel, It, of course, will be equipped
with the most modern of coaches. The
routo Ib one which has not been hitherto considered; but there Is much to be
said in favor of it from a commercial
point of view. The starting point, Port
Said, is admirably situated to catch not
merely travel between Europe and India,
Australia and China, but the large foreign population which of late years has
made Cairo one of the most fashionable
winter resorts in the world. Tho prospect of being able to do Palestine in ten
days without the labor and inconvenience now necessitated by donkey travel
would,no doubt, tempt many to stray into
a land which possesses in scenery .climate
and above all associations, peculiarly
great attractions. No doubt, too, the
railway would result in making Palestine itself a favorite winter resort aud in
developing the resources of the country,
which, under proper management,
might again be made to sustain a large
population.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Alexander III. has recently issued nn
order directing that in future members
of the Imperial family are to wear only
Russian materials, made by Ruaaian
hands. This order haB created much
dismay at Paris, aB both the Empress
and the Grand Duchesses have hitherto
been accustomed to purchase all of their
dresses in that city. The Czarina moreover has a staff of twenty French dreu_-
mnkera permanently employed at St.
Petersburg.
According to the London Grocer, another tea-producing district is the greatest novelty in the tea trade. Lately it
was tea from Fiji, now it is the growth
of Perak, situate in the Straits'Settlements of the East Indies. The first
consignment to the London market haB
just taken place, and has consisted of an
invoice of seventy-eight half chests. By
expert valuers in "The Lane," the
quality ia favorably spoken of, and on
itB being offered in public sale it found
ready buyers at full rates.
By a late decision of the Illinois supreme court State Senator Southworth,
says au exchange, will receive $2,000 for
damages sustained while riding oil a
railroad. The company plead exemption because the senator was riding on a
pass. But the court held that a pass to
a legislator muat be regarded not as a
gift but as something for which value
has been received. The senator's constituents are wondering what he gave to
the railroad company in exchange for a
pass.   But he does not toll.
A curious fact is given by a manufacturer of magnetic needles. He Bays :
" A few years ago we made an experiment in this way. We had prepared a
large number of magnetic needles, all
made from the same plate of steel, all
made by one man, our beBt workman,
and as nearly alike aB possible. They
were all tried on the same centre, and
the readings differed," he said," by from
nothing to a whole degree. We consider the difficulty insuperable." Now the
question is whether or not this error, if
it be an error, or disagreement of the
needles, is caused by imperfection in the
manufacture, or is it some principle in
magnetism that we do not understand?
The title of Earl of Sydney becomes
extinct by the death of one of the moat
interesting old noblemen of England,
He waB 86, and began his career of aervice in the royal household during the
reign of George III., being throughout
her whole reign the Queen's trusted
financial adviser. In person he was the
last surviving type of the elegant old
gentleman in a blue frock coat, brass
buttons, aud reservedly pompous demeanour, aud waB the model from which
Dickens drew the physical attributes of
"SirL-eicesterDedlock." This and hiB
life-long intimate association with the
inner court make it seem rather queer
that he should to the last have been an
ardent Home Ruler. His deep affection
for Mr. Gladstone doubtless accounted
for this, and the feeling wus warmly reel procnted.— Ex.

MY  LOVE SEWED  ON.
My love flowed on and she stitched my heart
Into eaeh gleaming fold;
Shu sat where tlio nun shone on her hair,
Changing Its brown to gold,
And still sho sowed with sigh and smlltt,
Mailing her wedding dress the while.
My love tewed on and she stitched my bear!
Into eaoh tiny seam;
Red tips, white brow and happy eyes
Were vailed In the tender dream,
And still as she sowed sho sang and smiled,
Malting a robe for a Uttle child.
My love sewed on, and her tears fell fast
On the gathers her needle pressed—
I lay near by ln a cold, whito sleep,
With my hands crossed on my bream—
How oould my lovo with her head low bowed
Know that I knew she was malting my shroudf

LEGENDS OF IOWA.
Origination and Oharaoter of Western Folk-Lore.
The "Lone Tree "-Opening of Rook to
Conceal a Girl Pursued by Savages-
Saved by a Thunder-Bolt-Salolde
ol Indian Lovers.
Legends will originate wherever men
and women may happen to congregate.
It Ib, however, somewhat startling to
i.mrn that legends exist in countless
numbers among the people of the Western Btates. Portions of Illinois and
Iowa, which fifty years ago were a wil*
derness or a prairie waste, to-day teem
with romantic Btories, and scores of objects with which are connected strange
adventures or incidents are pointed out
to tbe traveler who has tbe fortune of
coming across ono of those most India-
[•flusable members of Western society,
un old Bottler.
It has been said that legends reflect
tho oharaoter of a poople, and if such Ib
the case, the early Western settlers
must have been sturdy men who saw
good in evory thing, and opposed all
Htriutly vulgar superstition; for the
jiTi'nt majority of their legendary stories
contain morals and poetio inspirations
of the highest order, Thoy are free
from the dross of superstition found in
tlie tales of England, Germany and
Prance; they do not breathe tho roman-
, tic but misleading spirit of occultness
which pervades the fables of tho Orient;
nor do thoy In any way resemble tho
weird, uninspired sagas of the Norse
peasantry.
The legends of the Westare as sturdy,
as independent and as forcible as tbe
mon who created them, and for tbls
■nason, If no other, deserve more tban
passing mention.
What co_V, for instance, be more
'loetic tban tbo story of the "Lone
Tree," which was related to the writer
nut long ago by ono of the oldest settlers
uf Eastern Iowa? Tho talo—or, to
upaak more properly, the legend—is
Used on an oak treo, for many years
the only one standing within a radius
uf oight or nine milos. How did the
tree come there? That the unsophisticated pioneers oould not explain; so
utey resorted to invention, and gavo
currency to a story which will live long
after they havo beon forgotten. Early
in the yoar 1840, bo tho report gooa,
soon after the so-called Hlaekhawk
Purchase had neen consu in muted, a
'young couple emigrated from Now York
Stato to tbe West, The man (Bill
UrowBter was his name) wus open-
' hearted, hospitable and courageous,
and his wife waB a representative
American woman of the middle class,
industrious, kind and faithful. Aftor
their arrival in Iowa tho two young
peoplo* went out "prospecting" (looking
for suitable land) evory day, and finally
reached a traot of fat prairio land which
promlBed to yield rich erops, Hore
they decided , to tako up their abode,
and the woman, relieved of ull anxiety
tnd worry, then and tlioro gave birth
io a son, and at the samo moment—to
iioinmemorato tho eveni -an ouk sapling sprang up which was evor uftor*
ward callod tho •■LouoTroe." The sapling, in courso of time, became a stout
oak troo, and stood for many yoars in
its isolated position, a mystery to tbo
uninitiated, an object of novor-consing
I'urlosity to thoold settlors, and a monument of interest to tho student of
American life and manners, until a vandal out lt down, four or llvo years ago.
Scarcely less interesting is a bit of
legendary talk current in the region of
-the Wyoming Hills (a chain of mound-
tike elevations located on the. western
•horo of the Mississippi rivor, between
iho towns of Davenport and MUBcatlno,
[.».), Theso hills were onoe upon a time
♦.ho meeting-place of thousands of In
.liana, and hundreds of their dead were
buried in glguntio mounds constructed
ou thoorosta of the elevations.   When
..(■m white Bottlers flrst appeared tboy
received a cold welcome from tbe red
men who wandered through the country
which was onco thoir own, but bad been
»e.dod to tbe United States Government
by tbelr chiefs.   The savages carried
v'-ngonnce in their hearts and murder in
their eyes; and many a Luld agriculturist, who had braved the hardships of
pioneer life to acquire some land for his
family, never returned from his corn-
held, and tbe walling and lamentations
of widowed women and fatherless children wero echoed from ono farm to the
tither almoat every week    Oneof theso
tnon went out one Sunday morning to
collect bis cattlo.   He ascended one of
the sloping hills, not noticing tho form
of an Indian who waa concealed among
lho tall weeds growing on the summit.
The settler's foot never crossed tho
bht'osholdof his homo again.   He was
■ ■molly    murderod   by     his   bidden
uu and his body   thrown   Into   the
•vaters     of     the    Mississippi.     Hia
wife,   growing   anxious    about   hia
welfare,  at noon sont out hor little
daughter to hasten her father's roturn.
Tlio child, inured to danger, undertook
ilie  task, but had not proceeded far
i. hen aho noticed a rod man on tho hill,
:ml, turning around, one behind bor.
jv-i-upii Boomed impossible; but just nt
ttiat moment n crevice largo enough to
I'unccjtl bur opened in tho sido of tho
hill.   Hlm louglft tho retugo thus providentially olfend, and as soon ua ahe
concealed heruolf the opening closed,
and to ber startled Bight was revealed a
cavern of largo dimensions, of which
■.ho wm the only occupant.   Not until
the following evoning did thocrovico
open again,  The girl, almost famished
by this time, crept out of bor hiding-
place, and, aeuiiig tbat all danger was
past, ran homo, whore sbo related ber
strango atory to a number of neighbors
wbo bad mot at the cabin to solve the
mystery of her disappearance,   Subsequent search failed to reveal a cavern
.anywhere near where the girl had been
Su miraculously savod, but tt would,
i   nevertheless,  be * dangerous  thing
lo doubt the veracity   of  this  talo
'    In the presence of the few survivors
of those stirring times; and popular
taste has applied to tho hill, which will
sooner or later bo made famous by thia
story, the not very euphonic but very
L    significant name of "Providence Holo."
'    This pretty piece of Action, tbo writer
ts constrained to add, has a prototype In
a German Btory, but lt is doubtful
whether the.peoplo who repeated it on
the banks of tbo Mississippi fifty years
ago were aware of the existence of tbe
Teutonic table.   It Is safe to claim tbe
story of Providence Hole as a purely
Western production, which, when properly embellished, will be entitled to
rank wltb tbe highest speclraensof folk*
lore.
Another and scarcely less interesting
Instance of providential Interference
with tbe affairs ot men has many believers among tho good folks inhabit
ing tbe bottom lands of the ueaar near
its confluence with the Iowa river. In
the early days ot Iowa this part of tbe
territory was Inhabited by a wild, des-
perate class of people, who lived on
what they could steal from more industrious neighbors. Horse stealing was
the favorite pursuit of tbe male portion
ot this community, and many enterprising men saw the fruits ot their toll destroyed for want of live-stock which disappeared at the most inopportune timoa.
Horse thieves in those days expected no
mercy when they had the misfortune to
fall into the hands of the Bottlers; and
when one bright June morning ln the
year 1840 nino of them were caught
by a detachment of outraged farmers,
they prepared themselves to meet death
with bold faces. Tbo gang was conducted to a hugo oak tree on the banks
of tbo Cedar river, whose nine branohes
invited tbo settlers to finish their work
of vengeance. One man after tbe other
was supplied with a hempen neck-tie,
and arrangements were made to send
them to kingdom como at tbe same instant. The signal was given. A fierce
stroke of lightning and a deafening
roar of thunder followed the command
which,was to end the earthly existence
of nino human beings, 'digitt bodies
dangled in tho air. Tbo ninth was lying
on tho ground, Baved by the lightning
which hud ripped tho branch on which
be was hanging from the trunk of the
tree. It was a miracle, for the man,
after recovering from tils stupor, proved
his Innocence to tho satisfaction of the
"vlgilantB." Tbo eight thieves bad
met tbelr fate, but Providence interfered In a way that oould not be misunderstood to save the life of tbo guiltless. The tree mado famous by this incident is still standing-at least it was
two years ago and the strange talo
hore related has become a treasured log-
end among tho old settiera of the
vicinity, which ia no longer the hiding-
place of desperadoes, but a veritable
Eden Inhabited by prosperous and intelligent farmers.
A fourth legend had Its origin In the
present city of Muscatine, known in tho
early days as Illoomlngton, la. This
town Is built en many hills which over*
look tho Mississippi rivor. tn the days
preceding the settlement of Iowa by
whiles, the vicinity of .Muscalino Is said
to have beon tho favorite resort for Indian lovers, wbo passed many hours on
tho noble bluffs thinking of the maidens tbey adored. In most cases this
harmless pastime had noaorioua roaulta,
but onco upon a time an Indian warrior
fell in lovo with- the beautiful daughter
of a mighty chief. Ills tondor feelings
were reoiprocaicd by tho copper-colored
charmer, but her father would not listen
to the pleadings of tho obscure lover.
There waB no war at tho time, and consequently tho ambitious brave had no
opportunity to distinguish himself, and
win tho applo of liis eye liy deeds of
bravery, which soeins to huve beon the
only way in which tho stent parent
might huvo been moved. Elopement
waa out of question, as tbe country
was Inhabited by faithful followers of
tho chief who would have "tomahawked" the venturesome youth bad he
attempted to run away with the girl.
Lifo became unbearable, and to end
tbelr sufferings tho couplo concluded
to ond thoir existence. As Boon as llio
lovo rs had formed this dospfarato resolution they made their way toward the
rlvor. where they found a canoo. Chanting a death song ;.nd exchanging s:*ntl-
monisof undying love, they iloaied down
tho rlvor until tbey cumo to the bluffs
already referred to. Horo tiiey disembarked, ascended ono of the
stoop hills, uud, embracing each
other, throw themselves into tho quiet
river below. Tho incident was industriously diBCUasod by tho few white
families then living in that neighborhood, who forthwith named the onoo
picturesque bluff "Lover's Leap." Anothor version of tho adventure horo recorded ia not nuiio us romantic In It
tho love-lorn bravo and hia devoted girl
aro desoribed aa a vory ordinary whito
couplo who ended a life of disappointment by drowning themselves. This
mnttor-of-faot account of tho tragedy
may bo tho truo ono, but tbe rising
generation ia inclined to put faith iu
tho Indian tradition, whicb, as bas
already been slated, originated not
with tlie red men, but with tbo oarly
whilo settlers.
To repeat stories liko tho foregoing
without the least attempt at embellish
ment may detract from tbelr literary
merit; but the object of lhe writer bus
been to prove that the American peoplo
aro just ua poetic In their conception of
strange phenomena as those of Europo,
and thut hus in a measure been accomplished. Some day, there can be no
doubt, an author born with tho gift of
portraying tbe though ta and feelings of
the "common poople" will collect these
American legends, and preaent them to
the world as tho moat finished specimens
of folk-loro to be found anywhere.—G.

EGYPT'S SACRED CATS.
Remarkable Modeling of the Bronte
Felines of Bubastls.
The bronxe cats and kittens ot Bu-
bastlshave never been excelled for truth
and suppleness of modeling. As for the
cat-headed Basts, so admirably is the
head of the intelligent Egyptian tabby
adapted to the graceful proportions of
tho goddess, that we lose our perception of the Incongruity, and find the
combination perfectly natural. Tbe
name of the oat In the ancient Egyptian
language is mau—a name evidently ono-
matopoetio, and so affording no olew to
tbe original nationality of tbo animal
which was certainly unknown to the
Egyptians of the Pyramid period.
Lonormant remarks with truth that
Bast in the time of the Ancient Empire
was Invariably represented with the
head of a lioness, and that it is only
with the advent of the twelfth dynasty
that she begins to appear upon the
monuments in the likeness of a cat.
This was tbe time of the great raids of
the Pharaohs into the land of Eusb
(Ethiopia); and it is a notable faot that
the cat and the Dongolese dog are first
represented in the wall-paintings of
Bonl-Hassan during tbe reigns of the
Usertesens and Amenemhats. Ruppell
has ahown that the cat of the wall-
painting and bronzes is Identical with
tbe EilU manicutata Btill found In a
wild stato in Upper Nubia and the
.Soudan; so that lt may fairly be taken
for g*-ant.*d tbat the sacred animal of
Hast wua an importation of tbe twelfth
dynasty Pharaohs from "the Land of
Kuah." This view is strikingly corroborated by the tenor of a demotic
papyrus recently translated by Prof.
Uov 11 lout, which professes to record the
philosophical conversations of "The
Jackal Khufl and an Ethiopian Cat"
This cat Is half a goddesa, and that Bhe
should be designated as "Ethiopian"
points with special significance to the
original habitat of the animal sacred to
Bast. Strangoly enough, M. Naville reports ot the remains of the sacred oats
in the cat cemetery at Bubastls, that
the Bpecios there buried was not that of
the common cat of Egypt, either of
undent or of modern times, but that ot
apparently another species of the feline
tribe. The skulls found are much
larger than the skulls of uny ca*s known
to naturalists. They may possibly be
the skulls of some kind of small lynx-

Tha Productions ut Gorman*. Hwltaerlaod
and Holland.
Wooden carved toys aro chiefly made
tn Germany and Switzerland, the cheaper kinds In the neighborhood of Nuremberg and the bettor qualities at Sonne-
burg, ln Thuringia, from which latter
place about twenty-four million artioles,
valued at £800,000, are annually exported. Large quantities of wooden toys
are also mado in Saxony, where an ingenious process is ln use for diminishing
tbo labor involved in tbo production of
animals. A olroular blook of soft wood
ls turned Into a ring of such a pattern
that by slicing It vertically a rough representation of an animal (say anelo-
phant) ts secured. Eaoh rudimentary
figure is thon trimmed by hand, the ears,
trunk, tusks and Uil, all of whioh are
separately turnod and sliced by the
same method, are Inserted; and when
tho animal has bean painted tnd varnished lt ls ready for use.
Clay marbles also eome exclusively
from Saxony, being made of a clay not
found elsewhere. Tho better qualities
come from Holland, where they are
mado from fragments of alabaster and
other stones. Taw and alley, the oom*
mon names for the two qualities principally used ln this country, are abbreviations of tawny and alabaster.
A great ten days' toy fair Is annually
bold at Lolpslc, when more than six
thousand morohants exhibit their goods
In evory available Inoh of space, evon
in the garrets of the six-storiod houses.
Marburg, in Hessen, ls chiefly occupied
with the manufacture of musical toys,
while Blberaoh, in Wurtemburg, Is
noted for substantial metal artioles,
auch as carriages, locomotlvea, furniture,
etc. Tho specialty of Switzerland is1
wooden cottages, models, etc Somo
of the large dealers do very well
out of tho Industry, but the actual
toy-makers ln both countries are miserably paid, and find tt very hard,
even by the most unremitting toll, to
gain a subsistence trom their employment, many of them being obliged to
supplement tholr earnings by engaging
ln out-door labor during tbe summer.
Tbe productions ot Holland are very
similar to thoso of Germany.-Chambers' Journal.

taohod to tho Chineso legation at Washington, ls described as a gigantic blondo

LINCOLN'S  WHISKERS.
The President Ceased to Shave to Gratify
a Very Voung Lady.
President Lincoln's kind heart always
responded to a child's advances. He
indulged his own children, saying: "It
is my pleasure ttiat my children are
free and happy, and unrestrained by
parental tyranny. Love is the chain
whereby to bind a ohild to Its parents."
Before his election In 1800 a littYi girl
of olevon years, seeing his lithograph
portrait, thought his appearanoo would
be Improved should he wear whiskers.
She uttered her childish thought in a
letter to Mr. Lincoln, and in a few days
received a friendly answer, in which he
asked:
"As to the whiskers, as I have never
worn any, do you not think that people would call it a piece of silly affectation were I to begin wearing them
now?"
During his journey to Washington,
after his eleotion to the Presidency, the
train stopped at Westfield, Chautauqua
County, at whleh placo the little girl
roslded.
"I have a correspondent in this place,"
suid Mr, Lincoln, "a littlo girl whose
name is Grace Bedell, and I would like
to see her."
She was brought to the station. He
stepped from tbe oars, extended his
band and said: "You boo I huvo let
thoso whiskers grow for you, Grace."
Then kissing her, he bade her good-bye.
When he stood up at the Capitol to
deliver his inaugural address friends
were surprised to see thut the President
wua raising a orop of whiskers. Vexed
at his spoiling a face which expressed
power and pathos by wearing a course,
stiff, ungraceful beard of tbe blacking-
brush varioty, they made inquiries, and
learned that he had ceased to shave ta
gratify a very young lady.—Youth's
Companion.
THE RUSSIAN  METHOD.
A Unique Way of Securing the Surrender
of Dangerous Criminals.
In the course of his tour of inspection
through the Caucasus laBt autumn
Prlnoo Dondukoff-Korsakoff passed close
to the village of Stary Yoort, where a
native Colonel was not long previously
murderod out of revenge, and whero tite
murderers were being screened from the
authorities by the inhabitants. As they
rofused to give up tho assassins the
Prince ordered all the Inhabitants of the
village to be assembled on his routo two
miles off. Hero the Prince refused to
accept their greeting of bread and salt,
and rated them right soundly in the
sevwest terms ot the Russian vocabulary. At tbe same time he ordered
their elders to be arrested on tbe spot,
and gave thom one month in which to
surrender the murderers. If they remained recalcitrant at the end of that
term the severest punishment was to be
inflicted. Wtth the usual obstinacy ot
tbe Chechenlis tribes, who continue
their opposition to Russia as long as, if
not longer than, any ot the other tribes
of the Caucasus, the murderers were not
given up at the end of tbe month,
whereupon a "military execution" was
ordered to be made. At daybreak tbe
village wu surrounded by a cordon of
troops, and all the Inhabitants were disarmed and forbidden ever to oarry arms
again. Adotaohmentof troops were then
quartered in the vlllago, and 1,200 rubles
wob exacted for tbo benefit of the murdered man's family. An elder was alao
appointed and sent by tho authorities
with a salary, to be paid by the vlllago,
of 000 rubles a year. The murderers
have now at last been surrendered, and
the troops consequently withdrawn, t-

' The North Ann Steamer Service.
The steamer Fairy Queen, Captain
Card the vetern navigator in command,
will reBume her daily trips to the Nortii
Arm settlements, commencing on Monday next. The steamer has been overhauled, repaired and re-painted and is
now in flrat class condition for the season's work. She looks very handBome
in lier new coat of paint. The steamer
will leave the North Arm every morning arriving at her dock, Austin', wharf,
about 11 a. m. Returning she will leave
the city at 8 p. m. and reach her landing
at the North Arm between 5 and 6 p.
m. The re-eBtabliflhrnent of this line is
a matter of congratulation both to the
people of this city and the Nortii Arm.
It would have spoken badly for the enterprise of our merchants had the line
become defunct, and it would simply
have resulted in forcing all the North
Arm trade to Vancouver.

Mayor Brown mado a rattling speech.
He said the spirit that animated our
forefathers both in war and in peaceful
contests in the athletic arena was the
same that urges the young men of
Westminster to-day to excel iu all manner of athletic and manly sports. This
spirit has beeu transmitted from father
to sou for countless generations, aud it
was the same determination to succeed
in all things that had placed tho British
flag in the proud position it stands today—the foremost and moBt roapoeted
among all tho nations ou the globe. Iu
conclusion he promised to take a lively
interest in the club, and to further its
welfare on every possible occasion. It
is hardly necessary to add that such remarks as these were received with the
greatest enthusiasm.
The subject of forming a Provincial
League was thoroughly discussed, and

British statesmen wero even ostentatious in offering to let her state her own
destiny- Nevertheless, though even
since tlie curly part of the century every
intelligent Canadian hud known that
union with the United States would
have promoted the material advantages
of Canada, for three generations, no political party had made annexation a
plank nor had any public man of note
advocated it. It might be a matter of
sentiment but he 'spoke to citizens of a
nation which had ahown itself willing to
lavish blood and treasure as no other
people; life was at stake. No man could
forsee the future, but that he was sure
that if political union between the two
countries was brought about it must be
by other considerations thun the advantage of jree trade, potent though it might
be. He closed by observing that the
well being and prosperity of tlie United
States must needs be a thing the vast
majority of Canadians must desire, not
only because the prosperity of Canada,
but because as a matter of fact, take
Canada all through, there was scarcely
a Canadian family iu most portions of
tho Dominion who lnid not to-day a son
or brother or a near kinsman residing in
the United States.

McCarthy's bill to abolish the dual language system, editorially suyB: "It is to
be regretted that Mr. Dulton McCarthy
looks upon the dual language question

Commons that he would 'again and again
introduce his bill.' To what end? Ab
a means of consolidating the Dominion?
As a method whereby conciliation may
be promoted? Would it not be wise
for Mr. McCarthy, and those who act
with him, to pause and take stock, ere
wasting their energies in ,a crusade

Ottawa, Feb. 26.—In tho Senate on
Friday, Mr. Mclnnes, of British Columbia, introduced a bill to make Gaelic an
official language. The flrst reading of
the bill was seconded by Senator McCallum. Mr, Kiiulbiich suggested that
German should, also be placed on the
samo footing. Mr, Mclnnes intends te
press his measure claiming that thu largo
and Influential Highland Scotch element
of our imputation has just as good ground
as the French element for the recognition of Its language in Parliament aud

CARTWKIGlIT'B   NBW YOHK Hl'KKCII.
In New York last Saturday at the
annual banquet of the Board of Trade,
in replying to the toast of" The United
States and Canada," Sir Richard Cartwright said it was most true that Canada
aud tho United States were in n very
peculiar position. 'Of no two countries
might it bo more correctly suid that they
were at once so near and yet so far; so
easily accessible to each other and iu
many important respects so little known;
having so many things in common, ruce,
religion, laws, language and constitution
all substantially alike, and yet kept apart
by such purely artificial barriers. It
was time, he thought, to see if there was
no possibility of improving this state of
things and of bringing this sort of commercial war, for thut was really the
effect of two hostile tariffs, to an end.
Canada, ho said, had a vast urea almost
as large as the United States aud able to
sustain a population as largo as the present populutiou of tho United States.
This area was vory partially developed,
but it contained immense stores of raw
material and offered a wido and profitable field for capital. He was not only
ready but anxious to see that the people
of the United States got a full equivalent for whut they gave, that for every
dollar a Canadian made, a citizen of the
United States should make another; for
every privilege and concession they
grunted they should receivo another in
return. He desired no one-sided bur-
gain fur the best of all reasons thut unless
tlie arrangement was mutually beneficial
it could never be permanent und
a temporary arrangement would
do Canada harm instead of good.
Canada, he Baid, stood fourth in the list
of the customers of the United States,
aud if one considered the export trade
the United States sold Canada about as
much as they did to the whole continent
of South America with Mexico thrown
lu. As to the possibilities of expansion
that could best be judged of from the
fact thut while the whole foreign trade
of the United States both export and import wub betweon fourteen and fifteen
hundred thousand millions, their interstate trade was computed tobo ten thousand millions. There was, therefore,
fair reason to expect that if these meddling barriers wus removed trade with
Canada might be trebled or quadrupled,
and would certainly rank second only to
that of England. The obstacles, Sir
Richard said, wore two-fold, One lay in
the existence of certain sinister interests
at Ottawa, who denounced tho project
as only another name for annexation;
the other with certain politicians ut
Washington, who denounced the project
as certain to destroy all tendency to annexation. The latter paid but a poor
compliment to the institutions of tho
United States using this argument,
which meant that the better Canadians
became acquainted with tho United
States the less likely thoy were to cast
in their lot with thom. One thing, however, was certain, to propose to the peo-
{)le of Canada to barter their allegiance
or trade privileges wus the very best
way to enlist every sentiment of manliness and self respect against sueh a proposal. The connection of Canada with
Great Britain was purely voluntary, as
corn, whiskey, not beef, are the most potent fuctors in this Canada of ours."
Labouchere iu Truth discourses us follows upon a recent Ottawa sensation:
"Ludy Stanley, following, it is.Btated,
tho royal precedent, has declined to invito Mrs. Foster, the wife of Hie Canadian minister, to a reception after a
state dinner, which Mr. l'oster was required officially to attend, becauso sho
was divorced from her flrst husband for
desertion on his part. If this be so,
Lady Stanley has dono an exceedingly
foolish thing, and oue which the entire
Canadian cabinet ought to resent by declining to hold any social relations with
Lord and Ludy Stanley. The Canadian
law allows divorce for desertion. (?) I
presume that Mrs. Foster is not a criminal for liaving most wisely taken advantage of tho law wheu her first husband
deserted her; nor, us re-marriage wus
legally permissible, is she a criminal for
marrying Mr. Foster. Lady Stanley, of
course, hnB a perfect right to lay down
any rules that she pleases—whether sensible or the reverse—as to whom she admits to her private friendship. But, as
the wife of tlie Govornor-General of the
Dominion, giving official receptions with
the monoy voted for this purpose bythe
Canadians, she has uo right to net upon
her personal fads."
Sir Richard Cartwright's eloquence
captivated the hearts of the New York
Board of Trude men. At the conclusion
of his brilliant oration at their banquet
on Friday evening, he was elected au
honory member of the board by a standing vote amid tho greatest enthusiasm.
The bill of the Northwestern Coal and
Navigation Company to build a road
from Lethbridgo bv way of Fort McLeod
to tho summit of Crowds Nest Pass, and
theuce to British Columbiu, was amended. Sir John Macdonald announced
that the Govornment objected for the
present to give any railway a monopoly
of the pusa, because the district has not
been thoroughly surveyed, and the pass
is belioved to afford tho only means of
access to British Columbia for many
hundreds of miles. Tho bill was amended so ub to give the company permission
to run iu the direction of the pass to a
point to be hereafter determined by the
government.
Captain Cosev, inspector of the North-
woet Mounted Police, is in the city.
The Ottawa Free Press of TueBday
states that the New York Journalist oi
January 26th in uu editorial says: "We
shall shortly begin the publication of a
series of articles ou prominent Canadian
journalists and stutesmen who have
graduated from the composing room, the
newspaper office, and the editorial chair
Into publle life. The sketches are the
work of Mr. James T. Johns, ono of tho
best newspaper men in the Dominion."
In the issue of the Journalist of the 22nd
inst., uppearH a commendable biographical sketch of Prof. Goldwin Smith. Mr.
Johns is the writer.
Sir John Macdonald made au important and totally unexpected announcement in lho House of Commons Monday
afternoon. It was to the ellect that
Hon, C. II. Tupper, minister of marine
and fisheries, hud left for Washington
by the early nfternoon train. On Thursday lust Mr. Jones (Halifax) culled the
attention uf the House to a reply given
u few days previously by Sir John to
Hon. Peter Mitchell (Northumberland),
iu which he stated that negotiations iu
$328.65; 1889, $455.00; total, $5,306.85,
The number of copies printed each year
was: 1878, 200; 1879, 200; 1881, 300;
1883,500; 1884, 200; 1886, 500; 1886.
300; 1887,200. ln 1878-9 and '81 all
were practically distributed, in 1883126
were distributed and 374 left ou hand.
In 1884-5-6-7, these ordinances were
ordered to be translated intoFrenchand
printed in 1887 and were riot delivered
until the session of the Assembly in
1888f when all the ordinances were revised. There has been no demand for
them.
The Ottawa Journal yesterday says:
"The Bill to abolish the dual language-
system in the Northwest Territories
has been defeated, and the anestion
shelved for the preaent seaaion; tmt Mr.
McCarthy has intimated his intention
of bringing up the subject again and
again, if necessary, until the reform
wnich he demands is accomplished,
Those who imagine that an overwhelming defeat in the first conflict for a
great refonn will settle it forever, have
read the history of human progress to
little advantage. Seldom has any reform of the condition of a people been
brought aboutbyone effort. The movement to abolish the dual language system is but the flrBt step in the march
toward- a consolidation of the Dominion. As Canada existe to-day, it is but
a string of provinces, whose alliance
Buffers from diversity of language and
diversity of systems of education. Not
by the cultivation of such diversity hus
the neighboring republic been established."
Senator Mclnnes (Burlington) giveB
notice of motion that he will on Friday
next "call the attention of the Houso t^
the importance of making preliminary'
surveys in the North-West, with the
view of locating reservoirs for water, to
be obtained by means of artesian wellB,
and by conversing the waters of rivers
and streams, for the irrigation of districts which suffer from drought in dry
seasons; and will enquire whether it is
the intention of the Governmentto make
such surveys ?"
The Secretary of State brought down
a return yesterday showing the expenditure to Slst January last for making
electoral lists for the Dominion. The
statement is aB follows: Expenditure
on revision of 1886, $413,454.08; work in
anticipation of a revision in 1887, $2,-
008.64; work on account of revision in
1889, $160,134.50; expenditure on furniture, otc., printing bureau? $1,223.95—
total, $566,821.97.
In a speech delivered in the Quebec
Legisluture on Mondny, Mr. Mercier
said that any man in the Houso, any
man outside tho House, or any newspaper that dared to say that he had
ever insulted tho queen, the British
Constitution on the British flag, was n
liar; and further on in the same speech,
he said that the man who dared to rise
in the House and say that he, on last
St.JeauBaptisteDay. had expressed a
desire to have iho Tri-colour raised in
Canada, was a liar.
The Hon. Peter Mitchell expressed
the opinion yeaterday thut the Minister
of Murine and Fisheries had not had
sufficient experience to warrant his being sent to Washington to take part in
the negotiations now in progress for the
settlement of the fisheries' difficulty.
The annual report of the Minister of
Public Works shows the following expenditures in the Province of British
Columbia during the fiscal year :

connection with the Bohring Sea fishery
were being conducted at Washington
between the British minister und the
United States Government. He asked
the Premier "whether lu view of the negotiations, tvhlcli, he had announced,
are proceeding at Washington, it Is the
purjwBe of tite Government to have a
representative of Canada at Washington,
to look after Canadian interests as on
previous occasions ?" He urged that on
so vitally important a question Canadians should he represented there. Sir
John asked that notice be given, aud it
was consequently sot down on the paper
for to-day in a slightly different form,
the conclusion being "whether * * *
it is the intention of the government to
appoint a Canadian commissioner to
take part In the negotiations, and to
watch over and protect the interests of
Canada." On the question being put
yesterduy afternoon Sir John made the
announcement to tho above effect.
Hon, C. II. Tapper's departure was
very sudden, the reason given being
that the negotiations being conducted
by Sir Julian Pauncefote and Mr, Blaine
for their respective governments have
leached such a point that it is dcBirnble
that Canada Bhould be represented. Mr.
Tupper was accompanied by Mr. O. 0,
Chlpman, his private secretary, and the
duration pf their stay ia stated to bo uncertain.
