Volume 7.
Nbw Westminster, B. C, Thursday Evening, Januarys, 1890.
Number 174
Many of our readers, no doubt, especially thos
outside of the eity, have reason to complain of Irregularities or failures in receiving the smull sheet which
wo have been forced to issue as. an apology for The
Columbian since the "clean sweep" bf the 27th ult.
To such we need hardly speak of the difficulty, almost
impossibility, of giving anything like a satisfactory
service in any respect, under the circumstances, and
we confidently claim their kind indulgence until we
ure able to present The Columiiian in a larger,
brighter, and better form than ever—which will tie in
a very short time now. Those of our regular subscribers, either daily or weekly, who may have failed
to receive the small sheet which. we have been issuing
since the fire will confer a favor by Informing us of
the fact and sending thoir full address, and we will
remedy the matter without delay. Our subscription
book, although terribly disfigured externally, is "still
in the ring" for all practical purposes, comparatively
a fow names only having beeu destroyed, and the most
of those we have-been enabled to recall. The few who
may have been overlooked, by complying with the
request above, will receive thoir paper In proper order
na .soon at least as the new COLOMBIAN gets on deck.
TAB confusion of tonguos iu the Baltic provinces
was recently described as "a babel in a madhouse."
It seem that in their /cal for tho Russification of the
provinces the powers that be in Russia have summarily forbidden the nae of the German language in any
court of justice. Now it bo happens that the majority
of the population on the Russian Bide of the Baltic
knows little or no Russian at all, and the scenes in
the courts, where the peasants seeking justice and the
lawyers pleading their clients' coses are unable to
communicate their grievances to the learned judge
who knows no Gorman, must indeed be very entertaining for tho outsider, while for those personally
concerned the matter ia anything but agreeable. One
barrister, oh being required to sign an oath, demanded
that he might be allowed to study the document with
the aid of a dictionary before he put his name to it.
This request, however, wob denied as "unseemly and
impudent," The judges themselves nre In an awkward plight, being ordered to go to tbe Baltic provinces from their posts in otber parts of Russia, sometimes at only a moment's notice. One of them complained recently tbat his "call" had been so sudden
that ha had lieen able to take no luggage except two
shirts. The pay of the "men of law is also wretchedly bad in the districts, and altogether the chaos
seems to be about as great as it possibly could be.
The growth iu influeuce and numbers of the Solvation Army is truly marvellous, remarks un eastern
cotemporary, aB the 1880 report issued from the headquarters of the army shows. Ten yeara ago thore 125
corps with 100 officers, To-day they have 2,707 corps
and 8,700 officers, Both in England, the home of the
organization, and abroad the figure's tell of unvarying
progress. The army's property in Great Britain
amounts to £400,000, ami tho value of tho property
held in Canada and Australia is £220,000. lu tho
work of rescuing young girls from wayward lives the
army bas been particularly succesaful, more than
2,000 being annually influenced to forsake their old
careers. The government of Victoria, Australia, assists the army's efforts iu this respect by a money
grant. A work which hus not so much interest for us
here, bnt must lie of groat importance where it is carried on, is the supplying of food and shelter to tho
poor of Loudon. In oue week '1,0*00 of the poorest
men and women in London slept in their shelters and
receivod supper and breakfast on payment of 3d. or
4d. each. Since the food depots were established ovor
2,000,000 farthing, halfpenny, or penny meals wore
sold. The secret of how this was done without loss
was the fact that they had practically au unlimited
supply of luhor ut command. However groat mny be
tho differences of opinion us to tho army's methods
held by those beyond the scope of ita operations, it
seems certain, to use the hackneyed expression, that
the Salvationists have filled a long-felt want.
POLICE COURT ~
Billy Smith, a gentlemen ou a visit-to this city
from Vancouvor, untied on too many Chineso establishments yesterduy and got his brain so terribly muddled with Celestial wines that hu could not distinguish
Ins nearest und dearest friend from Chief Peurce into
whoso arms he fell, As William promised to remain
sober and well behaved until the present year expires,
the police magistrate allowed him to go with a caution. James Diokinson was another unfortunate,
who, however, could not give the same plausible excuses as Mr. Smith, and he was fined $2.50 for his
misbehavior.
PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT
Opened To-day by Chief Justice Sir M. B. Bbubik.
The Speech from the Throne.
DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Specinl to The Columbian. )
Victoria, Jauuary 23.—The fourth session of the
fifth parliament was opened at 3 o'clock thia afternoon
by Sir. M. B. Begbie, chief justice, who was appointed
by the governor-general to perform the ceremony, his
honor Lieut.-Governor Nelson being too ill to conduct
the opening in person. The usual ceremonies were
observed, and a brilliant assemblage filled the house.
Ou ascending the dais the chief Justice delivered
the following speech from the throne:
Mr. Speaker and Gentlemen op thb Legislative
Assembly: In meeting you at this, your last session,
it is gratifying to be in a position to congratulate you
upon the general prosperity which has crowned the
past year, and the cheering outlook for the future.
Tbe visit of his excellency, the governor-general,
witli which the province has recently been honored,
will doubtless exert a beneficial influence, and tend
still further to attach nur people to the person and
throne of our gracious queen, and to the rest of this
great Dominion.
There has been a healthy improvement in almost
every source of revenue and the receipts during the
past fiscal year exceeded your estimate by nearly twenty per cent., while there is every reason to anticipate a
still greater excess at the end of the current year.
Although there bus been a slight decrease in the
yield of our gold mines the outlook is more hopeful
than at any prievoua period. The experimental
works established under your authority at Cariboo
hav*demonstrated the practicability of the succesaful
and' profitable treatment of the refractory ores in
which that region abounds. The discovery of rich
and extensive ledges iu Kootenay is attracting the attention of miners and capitalists, and there iB every
reason for anticipating the early commencement of
quartz mining on an extensive scale. It will Im for
you to consider whether that desirable result should
be accelerated by improved means of communication.
My ministers have for somo time beon urging upon
tho Dominion government the importance of facilitating mineral development in the railway belt on the
mainland by placing the sole administration in tho
province.
The output of our ooal mines has been larger than
that of any previous period, nnd nearly twenty-five
percent, more than the year before, with every prospect of continuing to Increase,
Although on the important industry of agriculture
there is doubtless great scope far improvement, the
exhibition at New Westminster last fall indicated encouraging prospects, and I am glad to observe an organized movement, having for its object the promotion of fruit culture, for which many localities in the
province aro eminently adapted.
Our fisheries have yielded a more than usually
abundant harvest, and there is every reason tp expect
lhat this industry will, with proper encouragement,
continue to expand.
There has been less progress In the development of
our great forest wealth than was anticipated; but the
large milling establishments projected and In course
of erection leave no room to doubt thnt this important
industry is on the eve of great expansion.
The protection of our people in the exercise of their
rights in Behring's Sea, and indemnification for the past
has been kopt before the Dom. gov. and although delay
has been vory hurtful to the sealing industry, and trying to those wbo have been deprived of their property,
there is reason to hope for un early settlement.
In order to successfully utilize the volume of immigration steudily coming to our shores, it is essential
thut extensive explorations and surveys be carried out,
und you will be asked to make liberal provision for
that purpose.
Since the preaent basis of the representation of the
people in this house was fixed, increase of population
nml othor changes, have rendered additional representation und a re-adjustment of constituencies necessary.
A measure for that purpose will lie submitted to you.
The several railway bills passed by you,-although,
so far, not advanced by the actual construction of any
now roads, have uttrocted capital, and there is every
season to believo that iu the near future railway
works of magnitude will be commenced and -actively
prosecuted within the province. You will be invited
to consider the expediency of facilitating tho prosecution of thoae enterprises. The subjoct is now occupying the attention of tho executive council and I confidently anticipate boing in a position to pluce the result before you during the present session.
Legislation will be submitted to you defining the
law regulating tho liability of employers for personal
in juries to workmen; to allow coul prospecting upon
lands hold undor timber lease, and to rearrange the
limits oftho county courts of New Westminster, Vale,
Curiboo and Nailaimo.
The appointment by the Dominion government of
county court judges throughout the province renders
the small debts act no longer necessary, and a measure will lie introduced for its repeul,
A hilt will nlso be introduced to amend the legal
profossioiifl net bo as to permit of tho call and admission of practitioners from other countries, without
the requirement of lengthened residence.
The public accounts will be laid before you, and the
estimates of revenue and expenditure will be presented at an early stage of the session.
I now leave you to your deliberations, with confidence that your labors will be devoted to the best interests of the province.

Ottawa, Jan. 22.--Quito a number of tbe members

A Montreal deputation, headed by Mr. Curran,
M. P., waited on Sir John A. Macdonald this afternoon to aee if tho government would assist the city in
making tho harbor improvements. Sir John pro-
mised that the niatter would be carefully considered.
Tho houao met nt throe o'elook. Two bills were introduced; one by Mr. Costigan, "An act to further
the adulteration act;" the other by Mr. McCarthy,
"Au net to amend the Northwest Territories act."
Tiio usual questions by members were put and answered and several notices of motion were given.
A meeting of the privy council was held at 1 o'clock.
Mr. Dal ton McCarthy's bill to abolish French on
the official language inthe North West territories was
read the first tune, Mr. McCarthy made a two-hours'
speech strongly against Mr. Mercier anil the Nationalists. Sir John Macdonald said that the matter was
very important uud proposed to leave the* discussion
until tho second reading.
Tho report of the department of Indian affairs up tu
December 31st, was issued to-day. Mr. Dowdney
says that the Briti.-h Columbia Indians were favored
during the season with a large run of salmon, from
which source grent benefit was derived by them. No
epidemic diseases have existed among them except
mountain fever iu the Kamloops agency and smallpox
at Squamish, Bute aud Jarvis Inlets, It ia proposed
to establish u school at Alert Buy for the instruction
of the Kwawakowtths, A site has already been obtained. Parliament will be asked for an appropri-
I ation for the purpose. The feeling among the North
[ West coast agency Indians ia modified as regards thi'
land claims. The value that these Indiana realized
from the sources of fish, fish oil and furs, wat $180,
000, «f!(',250 and 50,540* respectively. The appropriations made by parliament for provincial expenses are
»*2,923.
DANGEROUS FUN.
About 10:30 o'elo-ok last night a heavy explosion
startled the people living on Columbia street, near (be
comer of McKenzie street At first it wu* supposed
to be a, part of the programme In connection with the
Chinese new year, but a second and heavier explosion
followed a few minutes later, whieh floored this
theory. The explosion was the work of some young
hoodlums, and their fun came very nearly proving
serious. A large piece of a barrel stave was blown with
great force through Mrs. Wm. Rue's beuroom window,
scattering the glass in a dangerous manner all over
the apartment. Fortunutely Mrs. Rue was not iu the
room at the timo, aud thus escaped injury. Information of the occurrence was immediately laid luifore the
police nml Constable .Smith at once took the matter in
hand. While looking ubout, the constable saw a
young man pay a visit to a pilo of debris on the street
and then quickly withdraw. A moment later a terrible explosion occurred, and Constable Smith rushed
for his man, who darted into the Club Baloon and
finally escaped by a Bide door. The last explosion
did no harm. It is supposed blasting powder was
used. The polioe will bring those funny young men
to justice if their names can be obtained.

PUBLIC MEETING.
A WILD PREDICTION-
Our old friend, A. Maitland Stenhouse, formerly of
Comox, writes from Lethbridge, N.W.T.,tothcOttawa
Free Press as follows: "Ou the 1st of March it will bo
exactly six years since I loft dear old England und
made my way to the far west. I have passed tbe interval in wonderland. Although a Mormon I should
be quite contented if I saw thu marriage reformers of
the different schools acting iu concert uud uniting ou
a common platform, I confidently predict that seven
years from to-day will see polygamy—though not necessary Mormon polygamy—iutluentially represented in
the Imperial parliament of England. You are welcome to note tiie prophecy, publicly or privately, and
to confront me with it ut the end of thu appointed
time."
It is quite probable that before the present session
of the Dominion parliament draws to a olose, Mr.
Stenhouse and his Mormon tiilicums will consider
themselves vory badly treated. The ex-Comox representative should have gone to thu city on the great
salt lake, in Utah. There is more room for his class
there than in Canada.
