New Westminster, B. C, Tuesday Evening, January 14, 1890,
NUMDER 166
S0MI5 timo ugo we copied nu item from n Victoria
cotemporary giving a gratifying nccount of the necessary improvements that hnve been mode during the
rccesa in the legislative headquarters at James Boy.
Thoae improvements will doubtless be much appro-
uiated by the assembled legislators of the province
this winter, especially by such of thein ua hnve
"beou there" before, anil are, therefore, in tt position
to draw favorable comparisons, Tho representatives
of tho press, we understand, as well na the genernl
public, have boon better provided for than in the post
in their respective accommodations within tho houae.
This is satisfactory as for tm it gous,-nnd commendable
0:1 the part of the authorities. If the government
would win the undying gratitude of the press, however, ond nt the same time confer on important bene-
"tit on tiic public by enabling thein to got better, fuller
uiul prompter service through tho papers, they hnvo
something further to do in the wny of increased accommodations to facilitate the important work of the
newspaper representative ut the legislative hulls, ami
tlmt is the furnishing of direct telegraphic eonimuni-
cation with the house of assembly at Janus Bay,
during the period of the legislative sessions ut Io.wt.
This would imply, of course, thot un ante-room should
bn set up irt m a temporary telegraph office within
tho sucred legislative precincts, connection made
therewith by wire with the telegraphic system in the
capital, and one or more operators, as might bo necessary, detailed to attend to tho legislative branch office. All thia would cost very little, as the telegraph
cninpauiea could afford to meet tho government half
way in tlie matter for tho revenue that would accrue,
and the convenience would be grent, not only to the
press representatives, who would bc relieved of tho
present awkward necessity of taking a round trip of
i-var a mile every timo tbey arc forced to visit the
bole-graph oflice, thereby often, perhaps, losing!important debates or proceedings, but it would lm found
that the accommodation thus afforded would materially facilitate tho business of tin- house on some occasions and be greatly appreciated by the members iu
their private capacity as well. Wo have said nothing
nbout telephonic facilities in the house, because wu
lnke it for granted that these ore already provided.
With reference to our suggestion above, tu the mutter
of direct telegraphic connection with logislativo head-
(piai'tora, we trust that it may be favorably reoeived
ami acted uppn, if such is not the preaent intention
of the authorities in the premises,
As- election wut held in Jackson, Misa., recently,
'imi the despatches con tai ued such sentences as the
following; ."Thus fnr no negroes have made application to vote, und aa long ns such ia the oase no trouble
i-i likely to occur," "Fifteen or twenty negroes pro-,
Routed themselves at the polls, but on being told this
was a pcncenblo election nud ilmb their voting might
causu troublo they quietly withdrew. Phai'e tire a
grent many strangers in town, ond it is believed their
presence had tho dosired ellect  of preventing  tron-
followlng very appropriate eoumip^ts: ,"It lfl dillicult
to he persuaded that such an election as that was actually hold in freo America. When a portion'of the
electors of n community arm themselves and roily ot
polls for the purpose of driving nway thoao t.lio
would vote in opposition to thom, and are aided in
thus soon ring a poaoeablo election by armed strangers
who havo come from a distance for thnt purpose, the
election celiacs to be a mere farce and heonmes-a crime,
for which retribution will surety como. The poopio of
Mhuiisslppi are creating a condition of affairs that will
cost thom dear before mnny years, and tlio result
Would be the same if every negro were transported beyond the borders."'
As exchange puts it not inaptly in tlie following
remarks: In tho single tux theory there is ono solid
germ of truth nml that germ is made to carry all the
cliuli' that fills the rest of tho measure. Justice requires that unoccupied ami idle lnml bc taxed nt OX*
notiy the samo rnte ns property similarity situated
vith Improvements upon it. In this the single tax
lilts tho nail mi the hold, bnt when the theory goes
beyond thia and seeks to place upon land the entire
burden of tax to the exclusion of other forms of wealth,
it establishes the very inequality of taxation il claims
to remedy. Thoro ia no reason why the owners of
land ahould bo taxetl and tho men who earn a hotter
living in some other way go scot free, and ony theory
which purposes to adjust taxation upon that basis will
depend for its advocates upon thoao who would bo
exempt under ita provisions, The assessment of renl
estato ut its full inurket valuo, exclusive of improvements, of improvements at one half their value, of personal property ot on average valuation nml the imposition of an income tax, so that those who do not own
property may poy their juat shore of the expenses of
the government, will come osneor doing equity in taxation as cnu bo reached by law.

everybody hud left town for the night.

AN ILL-FOUNDED RUMOUR.
Tho Vnncouvor World lost night contained the
startling news that onr worthy member, Mr, Donald
Chishohn, M. P., was dead. The item was incorrect.
Mr. Chishohn is alive, und though very ill is by 110
means given up for a dead man yet. Dr, Fagan, bis
physician, states that Mr. Chisholm is, if anything,
slightly improved, ami is progressing as well as might
be expected under the circumstances. The World
should be more careful spreading such startling and
ill-founded reports. Apart frum tlie poin sueh news is
sure to give the friends of the gentleman in question,
from a business standpoint it Is uot wise to rush Into
print with what at best could only hove been a street
rumour.
A BUILDING  COLLAPSES.
This morning about 10:30 o'clock  the largo framo
building occupied by Messrs. Port & Co., fish packers,
and also by H, M. Cunningham  k  Oo.   for storing
agricultural machinery, and situated between Begbie
and Douglas sts., extending from  Front to Columbia
sts., collapsed under the weight of snow on the roof,
nml fell us tint as the proverbial pancake.    Mr. E. A,
Port was seated in the office ut the Front atreet   aide,
and Frank Scott wna busy with some work   nonr the
centre of the building at tho time, nnd  the building
fell ao suddenly that thoy hnd no time to run.   By almost a miracle the fulling   timber   arched   over the
spot where Mr. Port wns sitting, thus  affording him
! litiie to crawl out,   Much the sume fortunate accident
I ocourred in Scott's ansa, and he escaped   with n deep
I cur. on the cheek and it blow in the small of the bock
I from a falling boom.    But for thoae   happy accidents
I the two occupants of the building would nidoubtodly
hove  been   killed.   Tiie  fallen building presents a
j scene of chaotic wreck that   defies  description.    The
1 cities, whioh hnd bulged out dangerously for months
1 past, went first, and even the end Walls, least nll'octed
by* the collapse, are rent and torn in pieces.   The
roof was heavily Loaded with snow, and on  the  west
side it, wos dumped along with a miscellaneous assortment of shivered timbers Into the  vieunt  lot.   This
historic building begun life as   Ewen'a  old  cannery,
and is quite anuiciit} its sudden demise litis not been
totally unexpected,   A largo crowd gathered at tho
scene of the accident and Messrs, Port ami Scott were
congratulated on   their lucky escape.    This should
serve as a warning to proprietors of  extensive   roofs.
The danger lies not alone in the fall of the building,
but as there is generally u lighted stove somewhere on
the premises there is nothing whatever to avert 11 serious lire.   The loss on Port & Co'a building  will probably bo in the neighborhood of 82,500.
FITS THE CRIME.
Ab How, the accomplished celestial with a strong
taste for surgery, and who attempted to remove with
a blunt table knife the protuberance on top of tbe
shoulders of Ah Shin, a friend and countryman, but
botched the job owing to Shin's stupid objections te
having hiB head sawn off, even for the benefit of
scienco, was tip before Judge Bole yesterday afternoon
ut 2:110 o'clock, under the speedy trials act. Judge
Bole informed Ah How that be could send him te prison for life, but as the intent hail only been to inflict
grievous bodily harm, be would sentence hlm to five
years in thu penitentiary. The prisoner rather winced
at the sentence ami it alao seemed to create uo little
consternation among the group of Chinese onlookers
who hnti ussumhled. Ab Shin was prosent and it was
freely admitted on all bniida that ho ia the hmulieat
creature tiio Chinese empire ever aent to this country;
his head was enveloped in dirty Imndugcs, and he
looked sick enough tor a whole hospital. Sentences
like the above are apt to make the Chinoso carver,
however reckless, pause a moment before he proceeds
to avenge fancied insults.
THE NEW FIRE H-VLL.
The fire and light committee have got to work in
earnest, and it looks as if business in these deportments will he promptly attended to this year. The
recommendation of this committeo that n new fire ball
lie immediately built on thu water lot at the foot of
Begbie streot, was promptly adopted by tho council,
and orders were given for the calling of tenders for
thu work. The resomtmmdntiou of the committee
that Chief Ackerman be paid u salary ot $25 per
month for time antl trouble expended in connection
with the tire department, was alao adopted. This is
only a fuir allowance, and it will be readily conceded
tbat the ohief is not being overpaid. The lire and
light committee is to be congratulated ou its businesslike measures.
TOO MUCH SNOW.
Yesterday forenoon tbe eastern section of Laidlaw's
cannery, at Sapperton, went down under the mass of
accumulated snow on the roof. Everything inside and
that came in thu way of the descending roof wus
smashed to fragments, and the building was totally
wrecked. Fortunately no one wus inside the premises
at the time, as escape would have been impossible.
As usual, in such eases, the affair happened without a
moment's warning, and the edifice was in ruins in the
twinkling of an eye. The loss wilt probably be somewhat heavy, as machinery of various kinds and canning
material were in tho building and are moat likely completely spoiled. A forco of men was set to work today removing the debris ami clearing uwuy the snow.
A gootl, substantial building will probably take the
place of the wrecked cannery.
