British Columbian.
Volume 7.
New Westminster, B. C, Monday Evening, January 13, 1890,
Number 165
Every mail ia bringing us bnck subscriptions and
renewals from all parts of the province, some sub-
icribcTB who have not paid in several years sending
the full amount due, and a year's subscription in ad-
viuce, Every letter contains sincere regrets at our
heavy 1 iss by the lute fire, and most hearty wishes
that the year we have now enter jd on may be so
bright antl prosperous that our losses will bu only a
memory at its close. To these of onr subscribers who
hue como forward so freely and generously at this
particular time, the proprietors of The Columbian
are very grateful, and we assure thom that the
amounts, small though they he, are of grent assistance
to us in our present troubles. Tho new plant which
we have purchased is costing a large sum of money,
and it will require a very economical handling of our
resources to meet the payments as thoy fall due.
Therefore those of our subscribers who are coming so
fi eely to our relief and assistance at present are doing
more tu help us out of our difficulties, and to place The
CoLf MMAN once more on its old footing than treble
the amounts would have dune at another time.
There wns a banquet at Batocbe the other dey in
honor of Mr. MeDowall, tho member for Saskatchewan.
Among those present were Chas. Nolin, Xavier Bat-
oche, Father Fourmond, and a number of other celebrities whose names suggest at once 1885 and tbe warlike events of that year. The speeches following the
"spread," which Is said to have been "splendid," dealt
naturally with half-breed questions. Mr. Nolin, who
acted as chairman, mentioned the existing requirements. These are as follows: The payment of the
rebellion losses, i. e., the losses by the half-breeds who
rebelled; the erection of police barracks at Batocho; a
yoke of oxen for each poor half-breed family; and an
assurance that the separate schools and lhe official use
of French shall not be abolished. Mr. MeDowall was
unable to make any promises, except as to the separate schools ami the Frenoh language. He declared
that so long as Sir Hector Lniigevin, Mr. Chapleau,
nod -Hie Adolphe Carou were in tho cabinet tbe hui-
gungc and the schools were safe.
CONDENSED  DESPATCHES.
While Col Mallory, of the Smithsonian institution,
is knocking on the head the generally accepted theory
that the aborigines of Amerioa had, before their contact with civilization, a formulated and established religious faith, Mujor Powell, director of the United
States geological survey, is administering like treatment to the mound-builder theory. There ia, he says,
no fragment of evidence to support the idea that there
was an ancient race of mound-builders superior in culture to the North American Indian. He also attacks
the more recent theory that man existed on this1 continent during the geological period prior to the glacial
era. The Indian races, he holds, were the earliest inhabitants of America, and thoy had developed from
the lowest to the highest stage of savagery ami were
relapsing into their original condition whon Columbus
mnde his great discovery. Whether other scientists
will finally accept these views remains to bo seon, but
it may be taken for granted thut the belief In prehis-
. toric man, which wus not hastily arrived at, will not
be quickly given up.
Lord Loiine was written a short story with a Canadian plot. The hero is a Toronto Q. C—whether of
federal or provincial creation is not stated—who goes
to tho Northwest in his younger days accompanied by
a friend. The friend tires of life on the plains anil returns to civilization, never to be hoard of again by tho
rentier. The hero, on the other hand, pushes on,
makes himself at homo with an Indian tribo, falls in
love with the chief's daughter, incurs tho flerco jealousy of n dusky rival, nnd witnesses tho death of his
red sweet heart lit the hands of the less favored suitor.
During the rebellion of 1885 tbe Q. C. makes a second
visit to the Northwest, this time as a soldier. He
takes port in tiio noti-pti ot Cut Knife, und thore sees
his old enemy, tho Indian wbo courted and killed the
chieftain's daughter, slain by a loyal bullet. The plot,
it is stated, is not very thick; but' the descriptive
writing ia gootl, for the Marquis js well acquainted
with Northwest peculiarities, and hns a ready pen
with whieh to sketch them. His excellency makes
the participants at Cut Knife reach thut point by wny
of Rntoelip, which is historically an error, and bo offers
some observation:* ns to the rendiucssof the militia for
service, which, measured by thu theory of concealment
advanced by the ministerial party, ure decidedly disloyal. Thoro is n good moral to tho story. It is to
tho effect that the Toronto Q. 0. did well in escaping
matrimony with the Indian girl.

If the scheme is successful one boani of directors will
control the business of the country nnd for the present
each house will continue ns It is. With a gigantic
syndicate, such as the one proposed, the promoters
say that they cnu make muoh greater profits, as money

per cent, nnd buying in large lots they could get
mnch lower prices. There arc a dozen strictly wholesale grocery houses which do a business annually of
$70,000,000.

FIGHTING THE SNOW.
Yesterday afternoon, u littlo nfter 3 o'clock, engine
No. 374 with snow-plough attached and a freight car
and caboose iu tow, reached the city. From tire
Brunette mills inwards sho hud n> very rough time of
it, and made slow progress. At the I. P. N. dock the
snow became too much for the outfit, uud it was
brought slowly to a dead stop. At this place the crew
ftnd foremen got out to survey tbu prospect, which, tn
Say the leaat of ic, was discouraging for the engiiif.
The head foreman then ordered lav engineer to IwicIk
down, but this movement was not cosily accomplished.
The ongine was kept running backwards: and forwards
a few foet at a time, for somo minutes. Finally (be
train bicked dowu uril i early opposite the woollen
mills, and then full pressure was put on, The speed
whicli the engine developed in the short run from the
woollen milla to the C. P. N. dock was terrific. She
crashed into the deep snow nt that point, and from
where the writer stood, near the depot, literally disappeared under a huge cloud of flyiug biiow and dirt,
whicb was thrown as far aa the sidewalk. The snow-
plough hail been sot rather low, and the edges of ft
ripped off great pieces of the planking alongside tlie
fails and threw thein with dangerous violence among
the large crowd which had assembled opposite the (,
P. N. dock. One of these pieces measured about four
feet long and weighed over twelve pounds. Immediately ufter striking the timber, it lookod as if the en
giue had left the rails; she pitched uml tossed about in
an alarming manner, ami fears were entertained tin1.*.
she was going over the embankment, . She cnmealouv,
however, ut a slower rate of speed, und was brought
to standstill once more juat west of the depot. '1 he
track near the C. P. N. dock presented au interesting
scene of havoc, a big pioee of the crosswalk had been
torn off, and the plonks running pnrallel to the mil?
looked as if a rough planer had been run .over them.
Several bolts wore started in (lie plough, b\it'no other
damage waa done. It wus amusing to Boo the crowd
scatter aa lhe biiow began to fly; they did not know
which way to tly, so flew every way; the majority
seemed to think the engine had something personal
against them, ami wus going to tuke it out then am!
there. The trains hnti trouble nil day coming inl"
and leaving the city, ami mournful whistles could If
heard at various times of tho duy, sounding like minute guns at son calling for" assistance; This state of
affairs ia almost unprecedented on the Pacific division
of the C. P.R.
NEW ORDERS-IN-OOUNCIL.
Among the new ordors-in-couueil gazetted in Ottawa
on Saturday, January 4, are several relating to the
province of British Columbia. With a view to increasing, the demand for Dominion lauds in British
Columbia, the government has created a new district
to comprise all the Dominion lauds within that portion of what is known ns the railway belt in British
Columbia which lies north of the line between town
ships 15 aud 16 and oust of the 7th meridian of tlr
Dominion lauds system of survey. A new regulation
cornea into force respecting the leuees of grazing lands
with the form of lease, permits to cut hay, leases te
cut hay, cutting hoy withent authority, the disposal
of coal lands and of lands patented or entered on
wliich the mining rights bave been reserved. A
lengthy regulation is issued dealing with the .timbe-
nud homestead Dominion landa in Manitoba, the
Northwest aud British Columbia, The Gazette also
contains a new regulation to form the bus's of classification for freight rates on the railways of Canada,

Mr. H. Davis, the Pence river trader, who ia ai
present in Victoria, whs u speculator in Whatcom
town lots in '58, when it was thought that that point
would become a grent city. He then paid f 1,000
apiece fnr some lota, for whicb he still holds the detd.
Ovor thirty yeara huvc come nud gone, and to-day it
looks as though Whut cum wns going to realize the
expectations of more thun a quarter of a century ago.
Mr. Davis hos bethought himself of his town lots and
haa made enquiries. Hu has learned that u threo-
Btory brick block now occupies one of Ihem. Of
courso tho taxes hnvo remained unpaid during the
long period thut has elapsed since their purchase,
hut Mr. Davis Intends to proceed to Whatcom and

for which he pnid n fancy figuro nenrly '12 years ago,.
If ho enn pay up his healthy tax bill and thereby substantiate his claim ho will be the owner of some valuable property.—[Colonist,
