PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
1.1KCI-.-ODV.   IIEWD.M.Y'S   SI'F.I'CM.
His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor
formally opened the lust session of tlie
sixth parliament of British Columbia,
on Thursday afternoon, January 18rh.
All the members were in their seats
and there was a large attendance of
ladies and gentlemen.
His Minor real tin following speech:
Mr.   S.maker  and   gentlemen  of   the
Legislative Assembly :
I have much pleasure in meeting you
again in this your fourth session for
the dispatch of the business of the
country,
The measure uf redistribution which
was necessarily postponed on account
of imperfect census returns, will he
in trod bed during the present session
for your coiisiderai lou.
Act in-.*- under the authority conferred
bv the "railway aid act" of last, session, a ���.'uai'iintee of interest lias been
given iu favor of the Nakusp und Slocan Railway company, and I a in glad
to state that the work of construction
iias been vigorously litiSlieil, and the
iine will b; iu running order during
the present year, so that the valuable
trade of the Sioenn region will be
attracts I towards the mercantile centres of the province.
In arranging, under your authority
lho details of the agreement wilh the
com puny 1 have reserved the alternative right of guaranteeing tho bonds ol
the c impuny, both as to principal an'l
interest. By adopting this plan the
bonds can be sold for u higher price,
and considerable economy effected.
Your attention will lie asked to u
measure with this object. Papers
upon the subject will be laid t-ufore
you.
I am happy to inform you thut following upon your former legislation
the Nelson & Fort Sheppnrd Railway
has been nearly completed nnd is now
running, thus materially assisting in
the goner,.' development of the province.
Notwithstanding tho reduction in
the market price ol silver, the mines
of the West Kootenay district, in consequence of tho high grade of their
ores, have shown a healthy development.
In Cariboo nml other portions of the
province marked attention has been
given to hydraulic mining, and important works ure Iieing undertaken iu
that direction. The coal mines of the
province have shown an output uf
!>7!",2ii0 tons, Iieing nn increase uf
152,!>27 tons over lust year.
The agricultural nnd horticultural
reports froin the various districts show
a satisfactory improvement both as to
the area under cultivation and the
modes of culture.
Our fishing iulitstry, a great source
of wealth o tho province, has produced resniis lirger than in any
previous year. 'I ho question as to the
jurisdiction of the Dominion Govern
ment to grant licenses for and to
regulate fishing iu provincial waters is
about to he submitted to tbe supreme
court of Canada, and I shall take cave
that the interests of this province are
properly represented before that tribunal.
Iu view of the discoveries of gold in
the Alberni liistrici during tne past
year, and claims to the precious metals
within the railway lands upon Vancouver Island having been advanced by
the Es.'iiiinault and Nanaimo isilwsy
uompauy, u special case raising the
point ono been referred to the supreme
court for decision.
A suitable situ for the Provincial
Home, the establishment ut which wus
authorized Ic, you, bus been purchased
at Hi. i.aloops, plans have been prepared
lor the building, and tenders for construction will shortly bu culled fur.
Although the past year has been one
of great commercial depression throughout the world, the revalue uf the province lias closely approximated lliu isti-
mate, notwithstanding tlie diversion
uf considerable sums of money to newly formed municipalities.
The three per cent loan authorized
for the construction of new legislative
uud department builuiugs by the " puritanical buildings act' was placed upon the money market and brought 0'2
per cent, of pur value, au appreciable
and gratifying increase in tlie value ol
provincial securities, Conn-acts for
the buildings have been a warned and
ihe work is uuw iu prugress.
Tne estimates of revenue and expenditure fur the coining year Will be mid
befurc you at, un curly dale, aud it is
irusted that they will be loiuul tu have
been prepared with a uue regard tu
economy uud the requirements uf tlie
public service. In deliberating upon the
items of expenditure you will be asked
lo consider the justice of aiding township municipalities by c* pundit ures
upon trunk roads.
The lung standing dispute with tho
Dominion government uu the subjcii
of the title to the railway lauds upon
thu mainland uud tile method uf ueal-
uig with them wus not biuughl before
ihe courts during the lasl year. Negotiations looking toward au iiinioiili.c
settlement are pending, the successful
result uf winch wojld uuviate the necessity uf a reference tu a judicial
u'ibuniil; and I hope to be utile io make
au announcement upon this subject
during the session.
Investigation into the census returns
made for alie purpose oi securing data
fur ihe redistribution bill to bo submitted to .. uu, has disclosed the fact
that several tribes uf I.idiuiis were un-
visited by tiie census enumerators, uud
that uo allowance fur their numbers
has been made iu arriving ut lliu tutal
population of the province, ns shown
by the census. 1 have caused representations upon this subject to be
made tu the Dominion government.
You will be asked to consider amendments io the drainage, dyking uud
irrigation act, so as to facilitate suitable guarantees being given by the
���.uvcriiineiit under proper conditions,
aud ulso uu act pruviding that tin.
measurement ol timber shall bo con-
dueled by officers appointed by the
government.
A bill consolidating the law of evidence, a partnership act, a bill tu
amend the uct dealing with (he labor
bureau, and a bill imposing successiun
duties, will be among the measures
submitted to you,
I now leave you to your deliberations
trusting that providence will so order
your labors that they may prove permanently beneficial to all classes of
our people.

Smooth anil Solid H lull -raj's That Are Well

The solidity, the smoothness, the continuous excellence of the highways of
England may well be the wonder und
despair of the American who reflects on
the two streaks of country mud or costly
expanse of nobby, very knobby, city
pavement lie has left ul home. There
roads are made. At home they grow ���
that is. they are made bad uud generally
grow worse. If Thomas Jefferson was
right in sayim- that the rivilizHtinn of a
country might easily be judged from tlie
state of its roads, then America is about
two centuries behind anywhere else, in
spile nf her boasted progress. We tickle
tiie sides of a large streak of mini with a
scraper and dump more mud iu the center and complacently go home with the
idea that our road tax is worked for tne
year, while it is left to the lung suffering
driving pillule uud the chief engineer of

have wrought.
lu England the roads are well made in
the beginning and are carefully looked
after every day iustead of mice a year,
imdnot with what Carlyle calls a dribbling futility of Intention, lint with a
steady di'termination of means to an end.

In some neighborhoods a little more
ambitious than those generally to be
found they mend the roads by placing
gravel and broken stone upon them.
Then the overseers Bay that they are
macadamizing the roads. Without
thoroughly draining the roadbed, to put
either broken stone or gravel upon it is
merely a waste of money and labor, and
the ambitiuus neighborhoods so doing
provo in the end nu wiser than those who
cover their roads with muck. But it is
within the moans of every neighborhood in the United States to materially
improve their roads at once���improve
them so much that where the traffic is
not extremely heavy and continuous the
roads will be in tolerable order nine
months in the year and very much better than at present, even when the frost
is coming out of the ground at the beginning of spring. And this ran be done
in three or four or five years without
spending one penny more than is now
spent in the hurtful methods mentioned.

In beginning such a task, tbe first step
to be taken, in my opinion, is to stop doing that which has generally been the
custom of this country���that is, working the roods. Working the roads, as it
is usually practiced in this country, consists in calling out in each road district
�� gang of men who "work ont" their
road tax nnder an overseer elected by
the people. The labor done is worse
than thrown away, for it is rare indeed
for either the overseer or the men nnder
him to have any clear comprehension of
what is needed,
Fortunately for the well being of onr
roads, these men do not work very hard,
bnt rather choose to regard the few days
on the road as a kind of holiday outing,
a picnic frolic, and a means of getting
rid of a certain amount of tax. If they
really worked with all their might, they
wuuld make the roads almost as impassable in the summer as they now are in
the winter and early spring. With somo
kind of a glimmering idea that ditches
on each aide of a road are good to have,
they plow np these ditches, together
with the sod that grows down into them,
and pile all of this mack in the middle
of tbo road,
This material, it may be said, bu a
most excellent fertilizing valne, and if it
were put npon the fields instead of in the
roads it would amply repay the farmers
who carted it away. Bnt in the roads
it is a sad and an immediato hindrance to
travel Luckily the friendly spring
rains nsnnlly wash it back into the
ditches, where it stays nntil there is
some more tax to be "worked ont."
When these rains are not sufficient to
wash away these impedlmnits that havo
been deliberately placed iu the roads,
the conwrjuences are very dusty roads
Maintenance ef Iltuli-rays.
After a road is once improved it mast
not be assumed that it will forever remain in a lirst class condition withont
paying any further attention to it than
to have a semiannual gatherin-r of the
old men and young boys of the road district to work ('i)ont their respective road
taxes nnder the supervision uf the road
supervisor.
On the contrary, it will require a good
deal ot care, and unless needed repairs
are made at the proper time the new
road may not prove as great un impruve-
uient as was expected. Parties who havo
traveled in Europe tell ns about the
splendid highways of that country, but
the fine conditiun of those roads is not
Uue alone io a superior quality of material ur co a faultless method of construction, but largely to the constant
care oestowed upon them by a force of
men specially trained and employed for
this purpose. From the foregoing it will
be seen that if we want to have good
roads continually, we mnst abolish our
present ruad system and adopt such
methods as will give satisfactory results.
���Good Roads.
���"act. to Remember.
Increase of railroad mileage seems to
lessen interest in highways, but it should
nut be forgotten tliHt nearly all railroad
freight has been previously carted over
highways.
The use of springs on freight wagons
greatly diminishes the jot or falling force
in road depressions,'prevents rots and
preserves roads.
The effects of wheels of large diameter
and width of tire is to greatly diminish
spot pressure, and the breaking of the
roud surface is thns obviated.
The reduction of cost of transit of persons und freight by lower prices for liveries and fur hnnling wuuld be beneficial, Rid as transportation is a large element of cost to every one not a producer
good roads would much cheapen living.
The cost of transporting products or
of hauling to market is by tenfold the
highest tax now paid by our farmers snd
hucksters.	
The Importance of Good Foundation--,
It is a curious fact that the Swiss roadways of today are really a revival of
Roman engineering, both in method of
construction and in selection of routes,
a return being made to it after years of
mistaken experiments. Consul Adams
declares that the most important lesson
for ns from European experience is that
the worst surface with a good foundation
affords a better road than the costliest
surface without a foundation. No matter how mnch money is laid ont on the
surface, the result will be swift ruin unless it is properly supported ironi beneath. But with a good foundation the
surface may be of gravel, ur even of
common soil if nothing better If available.���New York Sun,

Hooper to be Tried on Another C'.large
Montreal. Jan. 22,���The Quebec
government having decided to institute
further proceedings against John R.
Hooper, notwithstanding his acquittal
by tiie Juliette jury on a charge ol
murdering his wife by poison, Hooper
will be moved to Three Rivers tomorrow. Crown Prosecutor McMaster
has received instructions from the
attorney-general of Quebec' to proceed
against  Hooper    on  an   indictment
charging him with attempting to
drown his wife at Louisville. The
latter being in the district of Throe
Rivers, the trial will have to take
place at that town. The necessary
warrants have been issued for Hooper's
arrest on n new charge and he will be
lodged in Three Rivers gaol to await
trial. The new proceedings revive interest in the case and another lengthy
trial will be the result. Hooper expresses himself confident of another
acquittal.
Chinamen Working Claims and Making Fortunes.
Vancouver, Jan. 22. ���Several rich
placer claims have been started by
Chinamen iu Cariboo lately. It is
said that a company of seven ChinU'
men are making a white man's fortune
out of one claim. When asked liolv
the "stuff" is panning out they invariably reply, "No good. Heap work;
no gold." But they are known to be
shipping large quantities of gold dust
to China regularly. The treat Kootenay country, the southern part ol
which is now putting out 815,000
worth of ore a day, and is expected to
total an output of 8111,000,000 worth
for 1S94, is being worked almost entirely by miners from the United
States. But men from the United
States are a different breed from the
Orientals, and they spend nearly all
they make in the cities of British
Columbia. There is a great ory
against the duty on mining machinery
up country. Miners agree that the
United States have spent millions of
dollars experimenting before they were
able to construct machinery by whicli
they could treat low grade ores profitably. Now British Columbia is barred
from taking advantage of the result of
so much time, labor and money spent
on these researches by the immense
turiff on the machines. A great portion of the silver ore in British Columbia, however, is so rich that in spite
of the present low prices and absence
of machinery, the silver mines can be
worked at a profit.
Yankee llruvado.
Vancouver, B.C., Jan. 22.���Yankee
gall got Skipper Peterson out uf a
scrape to-day. Captain Copp capiased
him for a breach of contract ou refusing to accept a crew ol suilors, as verbally agreed upon. The Yankee skipper heard of his contemplated arrest
and skipped for his boat lying in the
stream. Officers immediately followed
Peterson got to his boat first, ran up
the stars and stripes, and standing on
the poop, orated the officers of the law.
Pointing to the flag, he said: " I am
an American citizen, and hereby claim
the protection of the United States.
Do not dare come on my ship ; do not
dure lay hands on me," The officials
were overawed by the slick Yankee
spread-eagleism and rowed thoughtfully home, When the story was
reported great indignation was felt
among the English section in the city,
and a number of loyal Britishers were
preparing to be sworn in us special
constables to arrest Peterson and pull
down his delimit flag, when Justice
Walkhem consented to hear the case,
preparatory to any decisive steps Iieing
taken, and avoided complications by
deciding the point in favor of the
Yankee.
NulimorjtL'il In Snow.
Kuslo, B.C., Jan. 21.���Chas. Brown
and John Dolan, who left Three Forks
early in December to examine a claim
on Bear Creek near Sproats, for A. J.
Murks, of Nelson, have not since been
heard from. A reward of $100 has
been offered for their recovery. A
searching party started to hunt for
them last week. Tracks of their snow
shoes, but no other traces of them
could be found. It is almost a certainty that the unfortunate men were
caught in a snow slide and killed.
Another Monetary Conference.
London, Jan. 22.���Tho correspondent of the Standard at Berlin says:
These persons interested in promoting
a new monetary conference have prepared a plan for submission to the
Governments most closely  concerned
with {ha silver question. The plan
will propose that the United States,
Franco, Britain and Germany form a
monetary union upon the following
basis: The United States to buy und
use for ourrency purposes 810,010,000
in silver yearly, and France, representing the Latin union, to purchase 20,-
000,000 francs worth j Great Britain
and Germany to withdraw all gold
coinage and paper money under the
value of ��1 sterling and buy ��750,000
worth of silver yearly in the meantime, and issuo notes under ��1 in
value against the full amount ol the
deposit of silver coinage; India to
resume unlimited coinage oi silver;
the price of silver to be fixed by tlie
countries mentioned ut, several of the
persons interested say, 4d per ounce
above the Indian rupee price, and this
to be the price, and to bo altered only
at the beginning of each year. If the
averago London prioo of silver should
fall at any time 10 per cent below the
convention price the members of the
union are to have the option to withdraw and dissolve the union. This
plan is to be accompanied by a long
series of remarks and comineiiis,
which will include a document attempting to prove the acceptance of
the proposed regulations by Britain
and Germany as perfectly compatible
with their maintaining a gold standard and attempting to justify a convention price of silver by the necessity
of offering owners of silver mines
profits sufficient to induce them to
form a trust and limit the output.
Pot of Gold Found.
Abilene, Tex.. Jan. 22.���A farm
hand employed on the Htunon farm,
12 miles from this city, has found a
buried pot of gold and silver coin,
amounting to 83,100! The finding of
this treasure vividly recalls to thu
memory of tho oldest settlers the story
of a horrible border massacre when
this was a part of the wild frontier.
At the end of the late civil war many
bought new homes in the west. Among
them was a party named Woldon, of
Alabama, reputed to be of some moans,
who first settle I in 187*1 in Eastern
Texas. About two years 1 iter, becoming dissiitisliol, be converted all of his
belongings into cash some $9,000���
and resumed his journey westward for
New Mexico with his family of five.
None ol them reached their destination
They were overtaken on the lonely
trail by the border ruffians and massacred on the banks of a little creek
near this city, now Djadinan creek,
win re they had camped for the night.
A few days later their mangled bodies
were found by cowboys, and buried
not far from the siot where the pot of
coiu was round. The cowboys followed the truck of the robbers to Jim
Ned Creek, where, it is supposed, they
separated.
Trip Around tbe World.
Boston. Jau. 22.���A young clubman
of this place, whose name fur Hie next
year will  lie Paul
ido   il
wager that he will travel around tlio
world in 12 months, starling without
a stitch of clothing or a dollar and returning witli $5,000. On the d���y set
for the word "go" Mr. Jones must
repair to the club house and strip to
the skin. It is nominated in the bond
that he shall neither ask for nor receive money, but for uny service rendered, such ns blacking shoes, brushing hats and coats lor the club members he may take whatever they are
inclined to offer. By little services of
this kind he expects to earn enough to
buy n suit of "hand-me-downs," in
which to say adieu to the club house.
Once on the street Mr. Jones proposes
to teach the unemployed a profitable
lesson in wage-earning by selling papers or doing anything that comes in
his way. It is hinted by some that lie
hopes to accomplish the journey in
much less time than a year and on his
arrival at the Pacific coast engage
with dime museum managers to exhibit himself as the man from Boston
