THE RT. HON. JOHN BRIGHT.
By the death of the Rt. Hon. John
Bright, another of the world's greateit
men has joined the great majority. His
name has been prominently identified
with political affairs in (Ireat Britain for
many years past, though not so much cf
late years as formerly. He was perhaps
best known as a staunch free trader, and
for the part be took in tlie anti-corn law
agitation and in the agitation for reform.
Of late be had been estranged from bis
political friend Mr. Gladstone, being unable to agree with the latter gentleman on
the Irish question. As a public speaker
he had few equals, while ns a friend of
Fence- and a true philanthropist, his name
will be cherished when those who perhaps have occupied more prominent positions than nny be sought shall have
been entirely forgotten.
Tlie Right Hon. John Bright was horn
on November 16,1811, an.l was therefore
at tbe lime of bis death iu bis seventy-
eighth year. He wna the eon of the late
JacobBrtohtof Greenbank, near Rob-
dale. Having received a good English
education he entered his father's buslna's
and became n member of the firm of John
Bright A Brothers, cotton spinners nnd
manufacturers of Rochdale, At an age
when most- voung men would imagine
themselves too juvenile to dabble in politics, Mr. Bright began to address local
audiences on Roeial and pnlitico-eeononii
col topics, nnd delivered at a literary institution, in his native town In Wi, a
series of lectures entitled "Reminiscences
of a Tour in tho Holy Land." Although
1831-2 saw him mixed up in tlie Heform
agitation of that period, Mr. Bright first
distinguished himself in political life hv
becoming in 1830 one of the first members
of the Anti-Corn Law League. In April
1843, nta by-election he stood as a candidate for the representation of tbe Citv of
Durham, but was defeated by Lord Pin
oannon, a Conservative and Protectionist. DuNGANNON, however, was unseated
or. petition, and at the election which
thereupon ensued, in July of the
same year, Mr. Bright was returned hy n
majority of seventy-eight. He repre
sented Durham until 1847, when he wne
returned for Manchester. He mad» his
maiden speech in Parliament on Mr.
Ewart's motion for extending the princi
pies of free trade August 7, 1843. In the
interval between his election for Manchester and the accession of the first Derby
Ministry to power, Mr. Rribht's activity
in Parliament and on tlie platform was so
varied and continuous as to bring him
into prominence in the estimation of
those whom be represented nnd his fellow politicians. In the House of Commons be proposed to apply the remedy of
free trade in land to ihe state of things
which produced the Irish famine.
His appeal for a royal commission to
investigate tlie condition of India was unsuccessful, and in 18411 lie wns appointed
one of the members of the celebrated
select committee nf tlie House of Commons on official salaries. He co-operated with Mr. Cobdon ill the movement
which the latter sought to create in favor
of financial reform. In IS.'il be voted with
those who attempted to censure Lord
I'almerston in the Pacific affair: and in
18",2 lie look a prominent part in the welcome given to Kossuth by the advanced
Liberals of Lancashire, On the formation of the first Derby ministry, Mr.
Bright aided in that temporary orgnniza-
of the Anti-Corn Law League. He was
re-elected for Manchester after a contest
at the general election of 181,2. With the
accession of .Lord Aberdeen's ministry to
power, began tbe discussion of the Eastern question, his views about which, loet
Mr. Bright many of hisformorsupporters.
He denouncetl the policy of tho Russian
war, but his protests against it were
cheeked by a severe illness; and at. the
close of the war he was unable lo resume
public action. The news of Lord Palmer-
Ston's defeat on the Canton question
reached him in Italy in March 1K57. Although he had necessarily taken no p«r
Bona! part in the debate or division which
produced Lord Pai.mebston'k appeal to the
country, yet be expressed bis entire approval of the vote of censure which bad
been proposed by Mr. Coiiden and seconded by Mr. MllnerGIBSON. At the general election Hint ensued. Manchester rejected both Mr. Bright anil Mr. Vii.nkr
GlBSON by large majorities. A few months
after be was invited by the constituency
of Birmingham to represent Hint city, on
the death of Mr. Mintz, who bud filled
that position, and he was elected in 1867.
He continued to represent tbnt loroiiib
down to the time of his death.
After 18,"i7 his name wns mainly identified with a scheme for the reform of tbe
electoral representation, by a wide extension of tlie suffrage, and a more equal distribution of the seals witli nfcreneeto
population, and alteration in tho law of
entail. He was an uncompromising ad
i-oeate of the North during tlie civil wa
in America, and after the close of th
struggle he renewed the agitation for reform. Ho visited Ireland, ami be was
entertained at a banquet in Dublin ol
Oct. 30, 1866, on an invitation signed by
upwards of twenty Irish Liberal members
of parliament.
(In Nov. 3, 18(18, lie was presented with
the freedom of the city of Edinburgh, and
in Ihe following mouth he accepted olliee
under Mr. Gladstone, as president of tin
board of trade. After being absent from
the House of Commons for some lime in
con sequence of severe illness, be was compelled to retire from office of December
1870. His health having been partially
restored, he was in August 1873, appointed to the Chancellorship of the Dncby of
Lancaster, in succession to Mr. Chii.dei s,
ami be held that position until the Liberals weut out of office in February, 187-1.
When the Liberals returned to power in
May 1880, Mr. Bright was re-appointed
Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster.
On July 17, 1882, he announced in the
House of Commons that he bud resigned
his office and retired from the Cabinet,
because lie differed from his colleagues ou
their policy in Egypt, which led to the
bombardment of Alexandria. On the
question of home rule for Ireland, Mr.
Bright supported tlie Unionist opposition
to Mr. Gladstone's bill, and his denunciations of the measures went far to ensure its rejection and tho subsequent return of a Unionist majority to parliament.
Mr. BRIGHT whs elected Lord Rector of
the University of Glasgow Nov. 15,1880.
A collection of bis speeches was published in 1868.

Letters From the People.
Editor Courier.—I have seen once or
twice lately in your paper that you are
advocating keeping the anniversary 0'
the Queen's birthday in a fitting style. A:
you are new to the town perhaps you mux
not know Hint, with the exception of the
year before last, when we were all mourning the dreadful explosion, It has always
been kept here.
I trust it will Ire kept this year, but 1
would ask you to use your influence to
change the'way of keeping it and take it
out of the hands of the saloon keepers.
Hitherto all the celebrating has been for
the good of tho saloons, I mean the sports
have taken place in the streets—a race
from the Old Flag to the Commercial,

ron COMOX.
The steamer Robert Dunsmuir sailed
yesterday for Comox. Dr, Rcharschmid!
[ and wife, Mr, A. Grant and the Comox
Football team went up on her. Tlie hoys
saitl they heartily enjoyed themselves
and were pleased with the reception
tendered them.
ANOTHER VICTIM.
Jackson Moore Woodman, aged three
years, son of William Woodman, residing
on Nicol street died yesterdav morning of
that fell disease, diphtheria. The funeral
took place yesterday afternoon, John Hilbert being the undertaker. Rev, James
Millar conducted the funeral   ceremonies.
THE  TELEPHONE.
hi future the Telephone Exchange oi
this city will he in charge of Mr. J. C.
Spiers, who has taken the place of Mr. .1.
Holman, who 1ms not been heard of
since his peculiar disappearance. We are
told that Mr. Speers will soon have the
telephone service running day antl night.
NEW PABSENOEB CARS.
The steamer Wellington which will
probably arrive here on Saturday, has on
board four new passenger ears for tlie E.
A N. Railway. The cars will he larded
at Esquimait. They will provide ample
accommodation for tlie traveling public
during the summer, ami in cass of excursions flat cars will no longer have to be
called into requisition.
MORE FOR THE GOLD FIELDS.
Our old friend Major Downle with Ezra
Cook, antl \V. (loody will start this morning for Texada in a canoe, weather permitting, Thc major says he is old but
means to "get there" as well as the
youngsters. The major has long wood the
fickle goddess fortune and we hope lie will
strike it rich this time.
PROSPECTING   For. COAL.
The steamer Muriel sailed yesterday
for Ihe northern part of Vancouver Island. She has been chartered for a five
days trip bv the Vancouver Coal Company. Mr. William McGregor, manager
of the V. 0. Co.'s mines and Mr. Rosenfeld, of the firm of Rosenfeld Sons, San
Francisco, were passengers. It in well
known that there is an abundance of coal
on thc northern part of tlie island, ami
doubtless the gentlemen have gone to
look into it.
TESTING TEXADA  QUABTZ.
A test of a quantity of gold rock taken
from the "Nutcracker" quartz claim,
Texada, was made yesterday in Messrs.
Pimbury & Co.'s laboratory." The quart/,
was pounded in a mortar and then washed
in a gold pan, antl numerous pieces of
gold were easily distinguishable. Other
tests were also applied, all of which were
entirely satisfactory to the gentlemen who
witnessed the test. The "Nutcracker"
was located hy II. Kirk, but it is now
owned hy li. F.vans. Mr. Kirk claims
that it contains the richest quartz that has
yet been found on tlie island.
"cold collations."
We have often wondered why the "Old
Man of tbe Mountain," ancient though he
be, should be so absurdly silly—laughably, we would sav—were it not so pitiable. However, we have, at last discovered the cause. Some picnic party last
summer left behind some broken victuals
and partially emptied bottles, nnd the
"Old Man'.' has been "collating" with n
vengeance on the cheap, too; had he been
asked to contribute something for tbe
entertainment, he would have have made
himself scarce. Thc public will not heed
the "Old Man's" collation in future.
ISSl'INfi   WRIT  ON   AN   ALIEN.
Application was made on March L'fith
before Mr. Justice Crease, of the Supreme
Court, bv the Vancouver Coul Mining
and Land Company (limited) and James
Miller Brown, plaintiffs, anil R. D.
Chandler, defendant, for leave to issue
writ of service out of jurisdiction, and to
servo notice thereof on defendant. Tbe
defendant resides in San Francisco and is
net a British subject. The plaintiffs are
desirous of commencing action. The order was made out and the time for appearance fixed within eight days. Drake,
Jackson & lleluicken for plaintiffs.
ANOTHER LANDMARK  GONE.
The old Btone building in the rear of
Hirst J'.ro.'s store was yeslerday levelled
to the ground. This building has served
in various capacities during its checkered
career. At one lime it was a school-
house; nl another a church, anil then ils
sphere of usefulness was changed into
that rif a dwelling house, and many of the
Hirst family were born within ils walls.
While turning over the debris Mr. Will-
lam Hirst discovered a penny that bail
evidently been intended at one time to
serve as a contribution lo the church
plate. The lettering of tho coin 011 one
side was nearly obliterated, it had evidently lain there a long time.
PRIVATE  ENTERPRISE.
We nre informed lhat Mr. Robins, the
enterprising superintendent of the Vancouver Coal Company's collieries, has announced his intention of filling in that
standing evil known as the "Long Bridge
Gulch." This will gladden the hearts of
the citizens of this town, who for years
have wished lo see something of the sort
done. The ''Gulch" has been made a
place of deposit for refuse of all kinds antl
has acted as a public sewer to the detriment of the general health. Mr. RobinB
savs ho can have the work completed in
twelve months. It is undoubtedly a great
undertaking, and Mr. Robins will have
the good wishes of everyone.
I'tllE   ENGINE    PRACTICE.
Last   evening just   about the   time the
Salvation   Army   was   having its   grand
inarch past, the' citizens were   startled by
.1 few taps on tlie tire   alarm bell.    Tli'-y
erv soon   discovered  that il   was only a
irailii'c night, but   many expressed their
disapprobation at the   fell being   rung at
ill excepl   ilia case   of  tire,    if the lire
tn    tile would onlv   give notice of  un intended practice, all would be well. Everyone admires the   pluck ami  spirit   of the
boys who 'jive their time when necessary,
to the salvation of the city   property from
be dread destroyer.   We must  say lhat
be engine was on the street and in work-
.in: order   in a verv   short space  of time
fter the alarm.    The hose   was attached

Ilint worthy chip of an old block, Dumas
the younger, inherited no small share of the
paternal gift of repartee. Many years ago,
when the pair where travelling in Spain, they
came to a part of the country said to be infested by brigands. "What idiots we were,"
exclaimed Dumas the son, "to forget our
pistols!" "Vou might as well speak in the
singular number,," quietly suggested Damns
the father. "True." replied the son, with a
smile, "I stand corrected. I ought to have
said, Whal an idiot you were to forget
them!"
The   Philadelphia  Record  vouches for thc

goto the door and call a cab nn mailer want
fee he would give the  driver   would  ask for
more.    Tin' wager was taken fnr te. pounds.
I The gentleman  called a cab, diove about   a
quarter ofa mile, stepped oul and banded the
i driver a ten-shilling gold   piece ($2.50!, the
legal fee being a shilling.      Cabby drove off.
I The  gentleman   who   had  taken ill0 wager
J was exulting in his  triumph   when suddenly
; the driver returned, and,   touching  his hal,
I said,   'Please,   sir, have   ye   a   thirty   thre'

j to break a bright piece of gold like this for a

terms,    He says, in tile course ofthe arraign-

j than  any  other creature living.    He   hales
j the whole   world   except   his   master,   and
: would hate him if he rlared to.    Many people
never go  into  their neighbor's dwelling be-
1 cause of lhc  snarling,   growling brute  that
stands sentinal   at   thc   gate. I have  heard
■ many people say that it was a pleasure to call
at my house, because Ihcy could do so with-
nut a canine protest. Should any sheep be
killed in a community, every man that owns
a dog within niilis will swear lhal his dog
was at Inline. thi'.: human life destroyed by
hydrophobia is of more value than all the dogs

of the dog, one in a million may possibly per-
■ form some meritorious :. t.    Hut I think thai
