Array THE  Dj^-ILY
British Columbian.
Volume 7.
New Westminster, H. C, Wednesday Evening, January 22,
Number 173
To-MmtKOW will open at James Bay, Victoria, the
fourth nnd last session of the fifth provincial parliament. Tlie session Ib likely to be a considerably
lengthy one, and everyone "feels it In his hones," so
tit apeak, that it will be a more than usually.important
one. The redistribution question itsolf, which is already creating quite a preliminary ferment, gives
promise of enlisting general interest and giving rise
to earnest and warm discussion, both inside ami out
of tho house. The question is one involving very important interests, not merely local, but provincial, and
its equitable and amicable adjustment will call for a
wise exercise on the part of our legislators of the highest virtues of statesmanship—firmness combined with
moderation, guided by common sense and controlled
by patriotism. Without dipping deoply into the
question at this time, which our limited apace in our
present form forbids, we would just remark that common sense dictates, in the first placo, that the province—if it is to continue to be one, which all expect
and hope—should no longer be considered or spoken
of aa two sections, cither in relation to the redistribution question or any other. Viewed from thiB, the
correct, standpoint, the question of a redistribution of
representation becomes quite simple, and its mode of
adjustment at least, obvious. The province being one.
every district will naturally receive the representation
to which it is fairly entitled according to tlie uniform
' basis agreed upon. On this foundation, due allowance
being made for modifying circumstances, it is difficult
to see why every portion of the provlnoe ahould not
receive Its simple rights in the matter and euch district be satisfied. Other questions of at least local
interest and importance are certain to come before
this session of the provincial legislature, and not 11 few
in which the electors of Now Westminster city uud
district aro particularly interested. By means of its
spcciiil representative, who is already nt the oapital,
Tub Comimiiian will keep its readers duly informed

words nearly doubled itsolf. Debt has accumulated
evon moro rapidly, increasing from £200,000,000 to
,1:440,(100,000. But we must not be alarmed at thla
erection of bunions, The colonics are not disbursing
their substance in wars. They ure not pursuing
foreign policies, or maintaining great armaments or
military castes. They borrow mainly for reproductive
works, Biich os railways and harbors, and may be supposed to have substantial equivalents for their expenditure.
LOCAL ITEMS IN BRIEF.
There is said to be n feeling among congressmen
in favor of postponing the world's fair until LSO,").
The reason alleged is that a presidential campaign
will be in progress in 1802. The southern members
object to the expenditure of ten or fifteen million of
money by a Republican administration during the
campaign, and tbe Republicans feur that the workmen engaged on the buildings and othor employees of
the exhibition might become a powerful factor in the
, election. Thus do political considerations interfere
with the whole current of events amongst our neighbors, "and enterprises of great pith and moment" are
threatened with ruinous postponement. But an
American cotemporary says on the subject: These
reasons will hardly bear analysis. The administration is not likely to have the expenditure of several
millions. The management of tho affair will presumably be intrusted to a hoard composed of men of various political creeds, selected for business ability, and
whatever appropriation eongreas muy make would ho
intrusted to their discretion Thu workmon employed
about the exhibition will vote neither more nor less
for being employed there, and tlio non-partisan character of tho management should guarantee them against
political influence. The underlying fact which will
account for the objections of both Democrats and Republicans probably is that they fear the exhibition
will, in a measure, divert the attention of the people
from political Ibsuub, draw money from tlielr pockets
und make campaign contributions dull. There may
be some force in these considerations. On tho other
hand, the popular complaint is that too much rather
-than too little money is spent in political campaigns.
It is likoly that many persons from abroad would consider the opportunity to study American principles
and methods under the stress of a presidential campaign a distinct inducement to visit the country.

Tin: immensity of tho British empire is increasingly
evident every year the figures ure udded up, In this
yoar of grace there are over .'100,000,000 subjects of
the queen in possession of 8,000,000 square miles of
territory. Commenting upon these impressive facts
the Liverpool Mercury says: During a period
of fifteen years the gross revenue—apart from Great

It is stated that just before tho death of the Duke

The great bridge across tho Firth of Forth, which

A daring robbery wna perpetrated last niglit iu thu

tray of diamonds and gold riiigB, valued at §8,000.
The men made for a sleigh, anu, being pursued, one
drove oft' without his companion, taking tho tray with

Grave fears aro entertained nt Denver regarding the
Howard Atlieunlseu Company of variety artists, who
are iu a snow blockade on the Central Pacifio Railway. The advices from Utah points say that the
roud may not be opened in three weeks. The train
with the theatre troop on board is believed to be
buried under the demolished snow sheds between
Reno and Truckce. It is u question whether the entombed passengers can he rescued before they perish
of hunger and cold. The mercury is 30 to 40 below
zero out there.
The funeral of Lord Napier of Mngdala wna marked
by a military pageant, wliich, in respect of extent and
splendor, has bceu equaled but onco in vory many
yeara, und this was on lho occasion of the queen's jubilee. From an early hour in the morning overy available part of St Paul's cntiiodrul waa crowded with persona eager to secure n place from where they oould
witness the ceremonies within. Tho famous''whispering gullei'v" of the edifice wub cruiiimod almoat to suffocation, and all attempts to eject the porsons whose

CHINESE NEW YEAR.
Chinese New Year is still being celebrated in due
and becoming manner by our celestial citizens. Yesterday and to-day the leading Chinese merchants received u very largo number of their whito and native
friends, some even coming so far ua from Vancouver,
and treated them right hospitably, nnd in a manner
that should put ttt blush somo of tho whito population
who cun but do not treat their fellow men, in less opulent circumstances, iu nearly so liberal n manner.
The establishments of Sum Lung ami Lee Coy were

handed round ami distributed nil libitum. Last evening a very large number of firecrackers and rockets

HEAR BOTH SIDES.
It is "axiomatic" that there uro two sitlos to evory

We have been informed by the friends of the lady in
the affair that she denies every charge made against
her by her husband, and declares that the whole thing
is a conspiracy on the pnrt oftho latter and Ida friends
tn do horagroas injustice In on' -r to get rid of hor.
Counter charges of cruol and brutal treatment aro nlso
made by the wife againat hor husband. The confession wliich tho woman signed she declares she did
from terror of her husband, who stood o.-er her with a
sledge hammer, and to be relieved of the persecution
of the latter and the two men with hiin. It ia not our
province to say with whom is the truth. There mny
be blame on both sides, The courts will undoubtedly

It was feared the animals might do some harm, but
after reaching Montreal atreet ihoy joined Mr. Keith's

without danger to life or limb, it wna thought best to
shoot them. This waa successfully doiie to-day und
tho carcasses wore removed'oh sleighs to the slaughter house for treatment, It wus fortunate that the steers
did not take it iuto their beads to uot ugly,
