The principal address wus delivered by
Commissioner Cockuuru, of Canada.

"Canada is 4J times the size of

Cumuli..ns fully realize what is meant
by the development of the great Northwest with its millions of acres of the
richest wheat binds in the world, and
we have been busily preparing to curry
that mighty commerce to Europe by
the river St. Lawrence. Canada is the
fourth maritime power iu tlie world in
registered sea going tonnage, yielding
only to Great Britain, Sweden, Norway
ami Germany. As to annexation, I
may say frankly that wo do not desire
it eitiier with the United States or any
other nation. We are willing 10 see
closer lies between ourselves and the
United States, but they must lie of a
moral not of a political character. We
are re uly for reciprocity treaties iu
brotherly frieli laliip and good will.
Canadian national sentiment is nil-
questionably loyal. You Aiuericin
citizens shed your blood and lavished
your treasure 10 prove your loyalty to
I'our fl ig and constitution. Let us respect each o: ber's national convictions, '
Sir Henry T. Woood, of the Royal
British Commission, look occasion iu
his remarks to repay with telling effect
to the sallies of Mayor Harrison in the
direction of annexation. He predicted
that, on the other hand, nt some golden diiy to come, Ihe United Suites
would return'again to the fold of the
Mother Country. He painted a glowing picture of ihe character uf the
re'mn of thu present gracious Queen,
and declared that under it the United
States woul I liud many advantages
and  reach  gieater prosperity than it
President of the United States. Up
again sprang the cheerio,������ people.
From fur back 011 the stage a man run
forward, carrying on h tall staff the
Stars and Stripes. He waved lliem
out over the house. Three times cheers
were given; and then, when lungs
se.'nied exhausted, a patriot in the
front seat, with bis last despairing
breath shrieked, "Tiger!"-World.

Heartily Wiilcomuil ul Golden.
The Huu. Col. James Baker, Provincial Secretary and member for our
district, returned from England ou
Tuesday, en route for Victoria, and
stopped off at Golden to see how bis
friends were getting on. The very
uordial greeting extended by Goldenites
must have been more than pleasing
and shows that the efforts of the lion,
member on behalf of the electors and
the Province generally have been much
appreciated. We bud tho pleasure of
a half hour of his company uud helped
ourselves to the following brief points
of interest.
He says that there is grout depression in the money market in England j
which bus been brought uboiit by u
variety of causes. First, the failures
in Australia j then the bad harves* iu
the Unite I 'Kingdom, followed by the
shock to llnauciers by the silver question in India which is likely to interfere with trade. Then came the failures
in the United States and tlie uncertainty us to the silver question in th..t
country an! thu effect oi' legislation to
come, upon that, important subject.
Then there is the coul strike which
bus throw half a million of men out of
work in England. Altogether there is
a coinpieie want of confidence and it is
impossible tu got money for any enterprise, hj.vever good. Some of thu
leading financiers in London stated to
Colonel Baker thut, they had never iu
all their experience known such depression and utter want of confidence
as to what the immediate future nuy
bring forth.
Col. Baker bus been interviewed
while in England by some lending
capitalists who have in view the formation of ii llritish Columbia Development Company which would !,.. prepared to build rail ways,'develop fisheries and '.nines, promote colonization
und inflict to liud capital to develop
anything which would he likely to
pay, The position of the promoters
was such us to ensure the p.'o.luctio i
of the required capital an I the scheme
was progressing favorably until the
linancial crisis threw it into abeyance.
Col. Baker would have returned two
months ngo but he wus unfortunate iu
being laid up with a bad attack ol
"phlebitis" which male him almost a
prUouer for two mil a half months
and was a grout trial to his active
mind. After attending to his various
duties iii Veto/in, it is his intention,
if his health will permit, to visit West
Kootenay and also this district some
linn during tho full. He bus baea fo--
tunate enough to obtain tlie nxessary
capital (},*)0,CCC), for working iho
Mount Ceuis ground on Perry Creek,
provided it can be worked as a hydraulic mine, and a mining expert is
shortly about to report upon it. He
has met and boon interviewed by several emigrants with capital who intend
to settle iu ll.C. with their families
and be has laid the foundation of a
scheme for the settlement of agricultural colonies (of farmers with small
capital), ill favorable points in the
He found the space allotted to B.C.
at the Imperial Institute wus of a very
meagre description und he has obtained
from the authorities there a large space
iu a prominent position worthy of the
Province, and ho favors the removal
of the B.C. exhibit at the World's Fair
to the Imperial Institute as soon ns the
American exhibition   bus been closed.
It will be seen that notwithstanding
his illness our member bus not been
idle or neglectful of tho interests of the
Province. After leaving Golden, Col.
Baker will stop a day at-'-.Donald and
then go direct to Victoria.
