New Westminster, B. C„ Wednesday Evening, January 15, 1890,
Number 167
In odditton to the direct losses from the late fire,
which obliterated our oflico antl printing plant, together with the business establishments of several
other citizens, that disastrous event hna hnd the natural effect of temporarily disorganizing our busbiosa in
every respect, uml with onr curtailed office.conveniences, it haBbcoii found impossible to got monthly
a-jcounts, etc., out with our usual regularity.
Under all the circumstances, we shall regard it us a
favor if those who are indebted to us for subscription,
adrertisiug or job w°rk, especially those wbo mny
havo running accounts for nny length of time,
will endeavor to, promptly settle the samo and
thus relievo ns of tho almost inevitable stringency
which snch an occasion us tho present superinduces. With overy faith iu tho future outlook of the
royal city ami its environments, wc nre sparing uo
expense nor trouble in putting in such u newspaper
a id job outfit aa will eniiblo us to give our
readers; our advertisers, and the public generally u considerably better sorvico than thoy hove
ever had before, Forward is onr motto, not back-
word; this wc conceive to be the spirit and unmistakable tendency pervnding thia city and district ns
well as the province at large, and, relying upon
this conviction nml our dctorminutioii, whioh luta ever
been our endeavor to keep well abreast of tho times,
nml if possible do credit to our immediute consistency, we confidently appeal to our readers and the genoral public to give us nil the reasonable assistance ond
enoourugement 111 their power. Wc promise that it
will not bo thrown awny.
Si'KAKiNu of tho Bohring Sea question, a Halifax
journal, representing Conservative views, suys: "If
t'rent Britain fails to do her pnrt, nothing will be left
to the Canadian scalers but to raise a fund ond fit out
their vessels with effective weapons of self-defence.
When blood has onco boen spilt, Great Britain may
be aroused from the lethargy whieh haa seined upon
hor statesmen," This, mi tin exchange remarks, is
about equivalent to proposing u dr.-olornt ion of war-
Britiah Columbians are lho ones who Way's suffered
meet from the hlgh-liaiidcd, anil us yet unchecked,
notions of tho American authorities in Bohring Son,
and British Columbians uro a proverbially long-suf-
fering people, Nevertheless, their forbearance must
1. it be tested too severely. Much loss resulted last
year tu our sealers engaged iu the legitimate prosecution of their coiling, ond il is to lie hoped, in the in-
' torosts of justice, fair play and the maintenance of
cordial relations betweon the two grout branches of
the Anglo-Saxon people, thot the liritish govornmont
will be able'to spore the time from its' otlier more or
less important bccupatioiiB and arrive lit a definite
and indisputable tuiderdtaiidnig with the Washington
authorities on this really momentous question, before
Bedims rc.mlt-i precipitated, by a toleration of thu provoking piratical farce carried on by so-called Aineri-
oaii niiiwrajnat your luting again resumed in the
opon watora of Bohring Sen.
Tut""ghost mysteries which gained 30 much notice
from aome of tin) eastern papers a short timo ago are
gradually reaching a iiolution. The Toronto Mail
saya; "Tt hos been discovered tlmt tlio St. John,
N.B., ghost was the result of an over-indulgence iu
spirita on thu part of the ludy who saw the apparition.
Tlio Pontine ghost was the production of a neighbor,
and a new sp.mk, recently reported to have appeared
in a Quebec church, wna in reality a man in on epileptic lit. In future nil ghost stories should bo accompanied by 0 luislicl of salt." It must be a grent relief
for tho erstwhile ghost* ridden east to have discovered
a satisfactory and perfectly natural explanation for
coeh of ita harrowing ami apparently supernatural
manifestations. The "bushel of soft" recipe suggested
by tbo Mail is n very pertinent one. it might bo as
wull, to'i, for ihe future to put oil ghu-st stories In a
strong ploklo of brine until they lose some of their
"freahnoHs1' before springing them upon uu unsuspecting public. Wo congratulate our eastern frienda on
tlio fact that they con now breathe freely for a season
uml devote themselves to their usual heroic winter
sports, varied by tho healthful excitement of mr occasional parliamentary qr legislative matinee.
A t'KTiTios hns been forwarded to the department
of the Interior, nays uu eastern Canadian contemporary by the settlers of the Battleford, N, W. T, district protesting ngninst the action of the federal gov-
erinont in sotting apart lurge reservations of bay lands
und wootl Iota for the use of the Indiana: Tho settlers
say. that to limit tlm area of hay lands available for
the use of formers and stock raisers in the mtuiuer proposed will greatly discourage settlement; ond that
they hnvo at present much "difficulty in obtaining, their
winter supplies of fodder, ' With respect to the necessities of tlie Indians, it is contended that the present
reserves are sufficient for them, nnti thot to lock up
more lands would bc grossly unjust to white settlers.
Referring to Mr, Dewdney's proposal to create re-
servos of hay lands, the Battleford Herald, a conservative-papor, Bays that to tie up more hay land for
Indiana thnu ia really necessary ia to throttle the stock
raising industry in its Infancy.
