And never will we flee ;

Proclaim that we are free I

What glorious future thine I
Let not thy new-born hopes be slain!
Hold fast thy right divine.

To tread thy sacred soil,
Annex thy domains, now so fair,
And bold thee in the toils?

A conquered race ne'er be I

Fast Canadian Ocean Mail.
The Canadian Government has
decided to inciv "so the subsidy
for the Atlantic mail service from
��500,000 to 1750,000, hoping thus
to secure a fast steamship ser-
vice. Tho proposal will bo nub*
mittod to Parliament in February.
The Government will bo satisfied
with nothing short cf a lino that
will carry its mails as Inst as
those that run oot of New York,
even if $1,000,000 should be
needed. It is believed that Great
Britain will assist in carrying tbe
burden, owing to the advantages
that such vessels would give to
England in the speedy transport
across. Tho scheme of tho Do*
minion Government inoludos a

Sam Greer Gets Three Years
And   a   Terrible   "Dressing
Down" by the Chief Justice.
Samuel Greer was sentenced by
Chiof Justice Begbie, at tho Now
Westminstor Assizes lust Saturday, to throo years' imprisonment
lor tho attempted shooting of
Deputy Sheriff Armstrong, Fob.
lowing aro the scathing remurks
Justice Bogbie addressed to the
His lordshsp thon turning lo
prisoner, asked him what ho hud
to say why scntoncc should not
be pronounced upon him,
Tho prisonor replied: "My lord,
I am not guilty. I had no intention ol doing any shooting,"
His lordship, in pronouncing
sentence, spoke as follows; ���
The oircumstanoes of your life, as
far as its oontaot with me is concerned, began at Chilli waok nine
years ago, when you appeared in
court before me. I was warned then
what a vile man you were, und as I
had the reputation then, which was
somewhat undeserved, of being a
hard man, a great many people cutno
to see the meeting between two such
oelebrated men. I was then very
muoh impressed with you as being
ono of the worst men I hud ever mot,
and I have never hail reason sinoe to
change my opinion. Shortly after
that meeting yon took up that land,
to whioh the title was a forgery, and
to whioh you never had the shadow
of a claim. The oase hus been taken
before two oommittees of the Legislature, and both of them settled that
you had uo olaim to it whatever.
Every judge who has enquired into
the merits of the oase has discarded
your claim as utterly aguiust justice
or common sense. Though oa one
or two occasions you have succeeded
in resisting the sheriffs, or rather
they failed to eject you from the
land, your claim, founded as it is
upon perjury and disgrace, is utterly
untenable. Even a commissioner
appointed by the Dominion Government to look into your claim found
that it was utterly unfounded. The
last time you camo before the Court
you had the impudence to sell tho
land to whioh the title was a forgery,
to innooent, nnsuspeoting people.
It was as oomplete a swindlo as over
took place, and the auotioneer refused to sell any more of the land
for fear of inoriminaliug himself.
It was a rascally pieoe of work, and
you and tho auotioneer had a quarrel about the proceeds of that sale.
Your career has been one of orime
from tho time that I first mot you,
and it will be necessary to put a stop
to suoh a courso. It would have boon
well for you if at Ohilliwaok you had
been locked up aad prevented from
pursuing suoh a oareor of orimo as
you huve led. Tho full punishment
of tho statute is throo years' imprisonment. In consideration of tho
recommendation of the jury I will
knock oil'nine months,but for twenty-
seven months you must bo iu tho
ponitoutiury and ocaso from troubling, and thoro I hope that your
miud will turn to tho consideration
of bottor things. Iu your lifo and
conduct hitherto, I havo not scon a
particle of coiuuiou sonso, Remove
tho prisonor.
The prisonor : Now, my lord, that
sentenoo has boon prououncod on
me, I supposo I havo tho right���
His lordship (waving his hand) :
Remove tho prisonor.
Tho sheriff stoppod forward and
removed Grcor, who was handoiiffod.
Lord Aberdeen on Canada's
The Earl of Aberdeen was tho
guest of the National Club, Toronto, on Saturday. In response
to the tousl of his health the
eurl snid that what struck him
most in his western trip wus ihe
incrousod development, stability,
and conliJcuce on the part of
thoso living in the Northwest,
He advocated inixel farming,
holding tbat it wus not wise to
depend wholly on grain crops,
bountiful ns they were. Farmers
should go more for cuttle raising
nnd dairy produce. Ho spoke in
flattering terms oi British Colum
bin's capabilities, especially for
fruit growing. " 1 have lelt
money behind me," ho said, "and
this shows I havo confidence iu
the country." As fur as the
Dominion was concerned he was
coutident it had a grand future
before il. " I know there aro
difficulties in tho way," ho continued, " bul I bold that they are
of a kind that can bo overcome"
He looked for Ihe timo when
there should be closer relations
between all the English-speaking
nations, and said ho regarded
Canada as tho link which was to
brink about that desideratum,
Concluding, he said, "Canada is
the greatest of British colonies.
But she is more ; sho is a growing nation I"

Two wc:|'S nn;o ive p.iblislied an
appeal to our subscribers to settle
np, and also to our readers for contributions to our columns of local news,
especially mining items. In response
we received several subscriptions and
some'articles |or publication. Ono,
from " Old Timer," suggests that we
afctnoi: the Dominion Government foi
thoir'' policy in " bamfoozling the
people and deluding them with false
pretences and falso promises." Wo
cannot sny that wo see eye to oye
���with " Old Timer " in that particular,
nnd cannot therefore publish his
voluminous epistle as cmnnuting from
onr sanctum. Ii is quite right that
in n free country every individual
gj-pujd be entitled to a free utterance
of his convictious; but every newspaper editor is not ready to lend
his columns as a medium lor spreading such ill-founded abuse of either
party in Dominion politics. Any
subject, political or otherwise, tending to promote the publio good will
be tf&lcoitie, but we are afraid " Old
JTimer" misunderstood our appeal,
which was for local news. ' It is
decidedly unfair, viewed from an impartial standpoint, to lay these
Charges at tho door of one party
more than the other, when both are
guilty. The present Opposition, ns
anyone y*hc bus read history should
know, are just lis Vacillating and just
ub unscrupulous in their methods.
[Vide Sir Richarl Cnrtriglit's election speeches Inst spring compared
with his uttornncos in tbo goneral
election pre'psding.] As for tbe chargo
of driving Canadians from their
ii'ntive land, many of tho greatest
independent journals iu Canada have
ascribed that result to tlio prophets
of tbe Grit party, who have for
iniu.y years 'past been preaching
'' blue ruin " us Canada's legacy, thus
scaring away capital that would
Otherwise have been invested here,
Which are we to believe f
' We thank "Old Timor" for his
readiness to assist us, but in the
matter of Dominion polities it is entirely unuecessnry for us to borrow
weapons from anyone. We have had
a fair sbar. of political experience in
the east, and from what we observe
bound IU W3 do not think it will be
been parcelled out among its member... Every instinct of self-respect
and self-preservation should iuduco
Canadians who have any love for their
country, or any desire for its future
good, to demand a change. From
every disinterested source comes nil-
vice to tho sum,* effect."'
"Old Timor" should remember
flint tlie above remarks apply equally
well to the Liberal Government of
Quelle". Boodlers will bo boodlers
irrespective of party, But if "Old
Timor" will whittle down his very
lengthy nrtiolo nud eradicate tbo
slrong element of nb**fo it abounds
wiih, or, bettor still, write n moro
judicious and prnctioal ono���for we
will allow lhat tho writer has considerable ability���we will publish it
over his nom do plume. But only
facts and fair argument are of any
uflo in political controversy, Vague
charges amount to nothing, .a.buso
aud slander, iu tlio long run, generally
return, liko the Australian boomerang, to lho bunds of the sender.
Even political "chickius sometimes
come home to roost."

A large number of onr citizens
attended tho funeral of Mrs. Beavo
last Sunday, nearly ov.ry fnmi'.y in
the town being represented, although
tho weather was bitterly cold. The
Hev. Mr. Led ner coud noted a service
at tho house, commencing at 2.30,
which included John si., 25-20, Job
xix., 25-2C-27, and lst Timothy vi.
aud viii. The hymn sung was
"Jesus, lover of my soul," aud the
touching refrain seemed very appropriate to the occasion, Tho rev.
gentleman then gave a short addxess
and coucluded with prayer, after
which tho Doxology was sung,
Whilo preparations were being mode
for tbe last short journey the relatives and friends of tbo deceased
took a last farewell.and it was a most
touching opisode ns the mother bent
over tbe corpse o�� ber ouly child.
The sliding panel in the lid of the
casket had boon left open, und the
plncidity and repose of the features
wore visible to all. Flowers had
boon strown on the silent breast, and
a pretty floral cross was tho work
and design of Miss Addio Brown.
Tho pall-bearers wero Messrs. H. N.
Coursier, D. Cowan, J. W. Haskins,
J, Sutherland, H. Bourne and G.
Teryberry, The casket was of rosewood, lined with wbito satin, with
handles and mountingo of silver.
Tbe undertaker was Mr. R. Howson,
of Main Street.
Revelstoko's burial ground is pio-
turesquuly situated on an elevated
plateau circled by the Columbia
lliver, and close under the shadow
of one of tbe dozen mountains which
almost overhang tbe town. It is
about half a mile north of tbe town,
and is reached by a winding trnil
through tho primitive forest. There
are about a dozen graves, some of
them fenced in with cedar pickets,
notably one largo Chinese enclosure.
Certainly this wild, romantic spot is
in great contrast to the typical village
churchyard. At the grave side only
the burial service was read, and
soon the rattle of tbe gravelly soil
on tha coffln-lijl.arnted on the ears
of those who stayed to see the last
act perfoi med���filling in the grave.
Deceased wt;s well loved by those
who knew her best, and had endeared
herself to very many by her unselfishness and generosity. She waB
ever ready to dc a kindly act for
friend, acquaintance or stranger, and
took nothing as a trouble where her
services were solicited. She will be
greatly missed.

"'Whatever Slavin may do,"remarked

From the census ol Chinese,
taken by labor organizations, it
is ascertained that thoy huvo a

How   arc  monkeys   caught?
The ape family rosomblea mun,
Their vjoos aro human.   They
love liquor, and fall,   In Darfour
and Senor, tho natives make a
fermented   boor,   of whioh the
monkeys aro passionately fond.
Aware of this, tho natives go to
the parts of tho forest frequented
by the monkeys, aud sot on the
ground calabashes full of tho enticing liquor.   As soon as tho
monkey soos and tastes it, he
utters loud crios of joy, that soon
attract his comrades.   Thon an
orgio begins, and thon in a short
timo they show all dogroos of intoxication. Then tbe nogroos appear,  Tbo fow that oame too lato
to   get   fuddled   escape    The
drinkers aro too far gono lo distrust tho negroes, but apparently I
take them for larger spooios of
iheir own genus,   Tbo negroes
lake some up, and thoso bogin to
weep und oovor thom with maudlin kissos.   Whon a nogro takes
ono by tho hand to load him off,
lho nearest monkey will cling to
lho one who lliuti finds a support,
and   endeavor  to go on  also.
Ano'lhcr will grasp at him, and
so on  until lho nogro loads a
staggering lino of ton or a dozon
lipsy  monkeys.    When  finully

securely   cagec!   and   graduully
sobered   down ; bul for two or
threo days a gradually diminish
ing supply ol liquor   is given
llicin, so us to reconcile ihotn by
degrees to their stale of captivity.
