Mr. Pry moved, seconded by Mr. Mar1
that a select committee he appointed,,
power to call  for persons, papers,   |
maps and records, and to report to this] a
House, lo enquire into all matters relatingI'
to Ihe west half of seel ion   11,  range -', j
Cowlchan district, sold by the Crown 0111
Killi November, IRTii. and  which  said j
piece of land is claimed by the Indians, J
as forming part of the Indian reserve at1
Cowicban.   The  said   committee   to  be
composed  of   T.   Davie,   Martin,   Hole,
fiofl and the mover.
The hon. mover said that while the
matter appeared very simple on its face,
it was in reality one of great importance.
The land in question has been disposed
of by frown grant,  but the owner had
never been allowed to take possession,
the  Indians retaining Ihe land and resisting  uny   encroachment  thereon   by
force.   If  it was   an   ordinary case,   it
could be seltled by law in the usual manner,  but it was not an ordinary case.  If
the owner attempted  to take possession
the Indians would resist to the death, and
murder would undoubtedly be done.
The resolution Carried.
Hon. Mr. Robson—To move on I
siileialion of Ihe report on Bill No.
titled "An   Act.  to   amend   the
School Act,' "   the   following  as
clause:

and In cancel for cause the certificate of

Lieut-Governor in council shall confirm
or disallow bis action in suspending such
teacher; and the cancellation or suspension of a teacher's certificate, when confirmed by the Lieiil-liovernor in council
shall release ihe school trustees of the district in which such teacher may be cm
ployed from any obligation to continue to 1
employ him as such teacher."

the benefit of creditors."

Mr. George Norris testified that the
notice asking for licenses had been published in his paper for a period of fourteen
days.
Mr. McElmon appeared for the applicants, Messrs. Nicholson & Scott, and
made a strong plea on behalf of his

that the growing importance of the

An application for a license to sell
liquors by retail was also read from l>.

I have saved enough to pay for several daily

too poor to read a daily paper.     It  is the
cheapest investment he can make, both for

PROTESTING  AGAIXST THE
SCHOOL TAX.
The public meeting called by Mayor
BATE on Thursday evening was fairly
well attended, but there did not seem to
be that interest manifested which the
importance of the occasion demanded.
Tho meeting was without doubt a representative one, nnd its action may be pro- j
ductive of much good in the way of preventing the levying of that which all i
must consider as an unjust tax. Nanaimo
has been tho first city In the province to
take any definite action concerning this
obnoxious law saddled on the cities of
the province bv the government. There
seems to be a strong feeling in the cities
of this province against the payment of
this levy, and we believe that the stand
taken by these municipalities most directly interested will be supported by the
citizens of the respective towns.
One of the resolutions carried unanimously at the meeting, directed the
mayor and alderman to resist the payment of the sum demanded by the government,   while another  instructed   the
city clerk to communicate with the Mayor
of Victoria, with the object of taking
combined action In the event of the government commencing legal proceedings
against the different cities in order to
recover the amount demanded as school
tax.
Of course there are always two sides to
every question and the government may
think that, they have every right to levy
what a great majority of the citizens of the
respective cities deem an uncalled for
and most unjust tax. It is no use disguising tbe fact that the government of
fbis province, hacked as it mosl Undoubtedly is by a large majority In the House,
is all powerful, and it is not to be doubted
that they will insist upon tbe payment of
the tax. We do not believe in (lie principle
of this tax and while urging every fair and
legitimate methods to he taken in order
to prevent the payment, we do not believe
that rash action should be taken. As a
matter of fact we believe that the different
municipalities will have to pay the tax.
Of course they will do it under protest,
but the end will be the same. There is,
in our opinion, but one course to pursue.
Let the people demand the abrogation of
this law through their representatives for
after all is it not these men, with whom
the interests of the country have been reposed, who are responsible for the present
legislation? Most undoubtedly it is, and
this is generally the ease. It is the people
themselves who are to blame lor the enaction of such legislation, and Ihe sooner
they learn that this is so the belter will
it be for the commonwealth. They are
content to elect men, unpledged, or if the
candidate has made pledges they see
him falsify his word and go back upon
his recorded promises and still utter no
complaint, or if they do register a "kick"
it is so faint, so feeble, that its force never
reaches the intended object. Hence legislators do us they please and the people to
whom they owe their positions of power,
submit themselves to the rule of tho servants when they are the masters. Il is
of course refreshing to note the plausible
argument advanced by these "representatives of the people;" their solicitude for the welfare of the masses
and for good government is extremely interesting—while they are candidates for
tbe people's  suffrages—but   when elected
it is.too often tho case that their interesl
in the welfare of their constituency die-
probably of inanition—and they nro always ready to vote at their party's "beck
and call"—of course they never think of
themselves at*all—oh, no! It is the "dear
people" and their interests which are at
all times, in season and out of season,
who occupy the commanding place in the
retentive minds of our politicians. So we
again ask who is to blame, if it is not the
people themselves? If they are careless,
negligent oi their best and dearest rights
and interests, they can rest assured tho,.
those whom they empower to do business
for them will also grow lax and indifferent in looking after the interests confided
to their care.
Such, we believe, has been tbe case in
the present obnoxious school lax. Action
on the part of those most vitally interested—the people—might have prevented
the passage of the law whereby this additional burden wiir put upon them.
But since it has been done, and the cities
arc called upon in contribute their quota
the only coarse 1 ft them is to protest
against its payment. Let all fair ond legitimate means be adopted to prevent the
city from assuming Ibis responsibility,
and if it is decided that tbe cities must
pay the Iril u'-e demanded thoy musi buIi-
hecnuse we had lo—objecting to the prin- (     Persons applying will please state  the sum

This company is formed for the purpose of
printing and publishing a seven column dally
morning and weekly news paper, to be known
as the Nanaimo Courier.
The need of a first-class daily newspaper
has long been felt—a paper which will devote itself to advancing Ihe social interests
and commercial prosperity of Nanaimo district and surrounding country.
The great favor which has been shown
towards the present Nanaimo Morning
COURIER, and the substantial support it has
received give the promoters great hopes that
the paper in nn enlarged form (taking its
rank as one of the best in the Province) cannot fail but meet with a pecuniary nnd lasting
success.
The object of this newspaper (being of a
non-political character) is to be entirely independent.
The company have entered into agreements
lo purchase the plant, etc., of the Nanaimo
Morning COURIER, which agreements can be
seen al the company's office at Nanaimo.
