London. March 19.—In tbe Commons
this evening Mr. Smith moved to (five
precedence lo the vote on account till the

Irish officials paid by the public at the

thai paper's accusations against the Irish
members of the House, nnd on n vote for
the attornev-genoral's summary he should
ask what state services Mr. Webster had
rendered during the last nine months and
why his salary should be paid. Gladstone denied the right of the Chancellor
of the Exchequer to calculate beforehand
what lime should he allowed to discussing
the vole. A question of great delicacy,
he declared must he discussed nnd he
denied the right of the Government lo
take away that right of the House, the
lime necessary for fall discussion.

The house met at 2 p. m. on   Monday.
The committee on railways reported

Mr, Higglns moved that in the opinion
of ihis House it is desirable for the government lo take steps, during the recess,

closed—if there was continuous communication by rail from Victoria to the northern end of the Island, passengers antl
freight could be transported to or from
this city and Alaska in two and a half

would be made in three ami a half days.

IT PROVES TO BE FALSE.

iu the net earnings of $6,671,400.
The strike of the engineers and firemen is given ns the chief cause of the
falling oil'in the revenue ami the increase
in the operating expenses. There also
has heen a diversion of traflie to new
competing companies, and ihe decline In
rates has also contributed to impairment
o:' lite revenue.

The Hank of Britkh Columbia.
Phc British Columbia Tannine Company Is formed
f <r the purpose of carrying on tho business of manufacturing all kinds of leather, belting, trunks, and the
manufacturing of all kinds of leather goods and goods
In which leather forms any part.
Any number of hides can be procured at a reason-
able price here and in ' ther parts of 1 he province.
Fuel can lie procured here cheaper than iii any other
t iwn in the province.
The shipping facilities here are of the hest.
Any amount of bark for tanning purposes can he
procured in the vicinity-
A large proportion ofthe heavy leather now used in
rhU Province is brought from the United States.
The hides in this Province are better adapted for
heavy leather than ihe Eastern hides.
Now most ofthe heavy leather manufactured In
the Eastern Provinces is made 0111 of hides brought
from Chicago, Northwest Territories and British
1 lolumbia.
Besides supplying this Province, a market fur these
(pods can readily 1 e found as far East as Montreal.
Owing to the largely increased demand for these
toods as compared  with  any previous period and the
facilities which this city affords for manufacturing
them, a large profit can he assured.
It is also proposed to manufacture buckskin gloves,
as there is an unlimited supply of deer hides, and the
hides can he tanned and made into gloves at a good
profit.
It is proposed to erect qulldlngs in the Citv of Nanaimo fur the manufacturing of said articles* the
hnildings and machinery will cost about $15,000.
The calls on the stock will not exceed ten per cent.
ii any onetime am! will not be made oftener than once

to the tollers themselves but to the politi
cal economist as well. There are some
thoughts which perhaps will hear discussion. With most families nowadays, the
problem of every day life is how to provide what nre regarded ns actual necessities, and when this Is accomplished, there
Is little energy to devote to the work of|0 i , . \- ..   ..    ~ , . _  _,
maidng provision for the future, which in British Columbia Tanning Com- RtlSSGH MoDOPiairl §t CO.,
reality is hardly less essential.   Wo often
hear the statement that the housewives : I '   "'
on this continent are not as careful and [liability   limited.]
saving as the women of the old world and i 	
that they frequently waste what would be Qaptilal $50,000; in
sufficient to keep the family In food, i
Domestic economists sometimes lay greal
stress upon this, but it seems to us they
proceed on a money basis. There is no
difference between this and other countries in the desire of people to have all the
comforts they can, and to indulge In such j
luxuries as tin's can afford, There is,
greater variety and abundance in the dailv
fare of the average person in this country,
than of the average Inhabitant of any
other country, simply because the former
can afford it, and the lutter must do without much he would like to have. When
it comes lo comparative results
for the expenditure there are no
women in the world who mako a better
showing than these, generally speaking,
of the North American continent. The
Well-kapt children nnd the tidy houses
maintained on small incomes furnish the
highest proofs of the thrift and faculty of
our housewives. Thousands of these do
their own housework, and their deft
fingers are otherwise busy In fashioninp
garments and household adornments. II
is a striking fact that children, as soon as
they begin to prattle, seem to realizeahout
what they can get from their fathers and
mothers, and their demands are In a large
measure regulated accordingly. That (here |
is waste and loss from this cause through |
over-indulgence is undoubtedly the fact,
but the fault lies with the parents. The
children take their cue from them, Al
the risk of being censorious we will say
that there are many families who could
save something without denying themselves any real comforts they enjov who
fail to do so. A great help to this is to he
found In thorough concert between husband and wife, The policy of not getting
anything until it can be paid for is a safeguard agninst extravagance, and a systematized account of al! expenditures will
give that perfect knowledge of the actual
cost of living, without which, on a small
income, pinna cannot be laid to the best
advantage. It will also serve to keep expenditures within the bounds of prudence
and show wherein retrenchment, if necessary, can be best effected. There should
be but. one purse, and as is too often the
case, the man should not throw the whole
domestic burden upon the woman and
grumble because, with little money at her
command, she finds it necessary to expend it all. Husband and wife should
plan together. With u complete statement of expenditure always al band—
with those by the husband put down, as
well as those hy the wife and for the family—there would never be occasion for the
question,  "What did you do  with the

eleven or half-past.
As soon as father anil mollier have retired,
the young girlattircs herself in a bright silk
dress, a white jacket, and a sort of shawl like
sash. She puis flowers in her black hnir,and
lights a lamp, which she sets in the window.
Thereupon the beaux gather. She sits upon
a mat in the centre of Ihe Moor and they sit
about her. All smoke, and the young men
•cgin telling all the derogatory stories ih _
kaow of each other, trying to prove this »ne
a coward, that one l«?y, the other untruthful
or a braggart.
The tact of the young girl is shown ay
treating all exactly alike. Any favoritism
may bring about a quarrel, Finally she
chooses one, and this being settled they an
married at once. It is sometimes a loni.
while before she makes her choice, for she i.
in the way ol hearing a great deal againsi
her suitors. The parents never Interfere,nol
even when some jealous swain spears anoth r
on the threshold, or sho-ts him from behind
a tree. The courting tiiiu h.-longs altogether

The marriage is a civil contract, or a
family c impact, and the pries! who is a
Buddhist never performs ii. I|is v, ws of
celibacy prevent him from being present at a
wedding. He always professes liiin-elfvcry
sorry for any young married couple he hears
of, and believes that only single peo| le can
obtaia that of happiness herenftet for which
a Buddhist hopes. The married ones, he
fears, will find their souls in the bodies of
animals after death. In fact, a Burmese
who is very religious never marries.
WAS NOT WORTH SAVINli.
Tlio bouncer of the S. A. forcibly ejected
an obnoxious member of the congregation laBt night. He went out amidst the
plaudits of Ibe audience, waving his hnl
nnd singing "Sinner gel your soul saved."
: He afterwards conducted a concert on his
I own account, surrounded by a crowd of
admiring boys.
COLLISION.
A slight train collision took place at
Russell station a day or two ago. An
empty passenger backed into nn outgoing

The result was that a Hut car was smashed up, the engine of the freight wns derailed aud tbe cow catcher wiped  oul  of

LASCJUKTI   QUARTZ.
Quartz prospecting and mining bv the
recent discoveries on Texada have received such nn Impetus that every hill on
the different islands in the Gulf bears
evidence of tbe presence of the prospector, It is now stated that a fine silver-
hearing ledge has been discovered on l,as-
queti Island, and it is also staled that the
ore is as promising looking as any that
has been shown either from Texada or
elsewhere.

As a team with a heavy load of laths
was going down the steep approach lo
Johnston's wharf, the load proved
ton heavy for the horses, which tried in
vain tn bold back nnd then swerved t.,

the Government office, breaking away a

Luckily very little damage was done, only
the horses being slightly scratched.

DEATH OK ROBERT LOVE.
The   funeral   of  Mr.  Robert  Love  is
announced  to take  place  at   2:30 p.m.,
from the residence of Mr. II. McAdii 1
Albert street. Mr. Love was a nephew
of Mr. John Love, foreman of the Alberni
road party. He died yesterday nt Victoria
of consumption, at the early ago of 27.
Uc was a native of Ontario, und came to
this country only a few weeks ago in company with his BiBter. He was taken il!
and went into the Victoria hospital, where
he died on Mondaj • Mr. John Love hns
gone lo Victoria "to bring up tho remains.
sav thai they voted for the license ::s
well, but we'know them to,, well to take
the bait like tbnt, as wo cannot be caught
with 11 llv, we waul something more solid
for a bait than Hint; und I did think that
the public had more sense than to be
caught in thai way even if liny bad it
from the Free Press or specially prepared
by the old man from the mount. Bul Mr,
Editor Ihe people niusl thank the   editor
of the Free Press tor killing the by-law
to-day us he is the same as the Hudson
Bay Company used to be before the Indians got 11 little enlightened. They could
get a pile of deer skins t be height of a musket for the musket and that is the reason
that he does not want to see the city
progress      for     be     is     ufrnid     thai
il would enlighten tho public nnd show
them how tbev had been fill pod by reading such 11 paper for so many years by
opening their eyes tn the fact that tbev
bad fancied that ho, the editnr, was capable to ctlil a sheet, and had only just
found out their mistake. And now, Mr.
Editor, would it not be its well if we were
to go back to tho old davs and
then we should not want nnv buildings
except a few log Cabins, ami I firmly believe we nre coming to that, ns I see nn
alderman is building on the street and
nothing snid about it, nnd I believe there
are plenty more besides  him encroaching
on the streets that would be prevented if
there was n survev niinle of the city. I
have no doubt if such a thing .was
broached that Ibe manager of the Vancouver Coal Company would be liberal
enough to assist In having 11 re-survey, ns
he has proved liinirelf by assisting the
city in several ways und there is not any
moss growing round him, nnd if I hail
thought there were so niiiny mosshncks
in the city, I for one should not have losl
a shift to come and vote.

The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of Ihe Throat

that everyone, without exception receives
