London, March 18.—St. Patrick's Pnv
festivities began to-night by banquets
being given hy a number of lending Irish
societies nnd in the principal cities
throughout Great Britain, although Monday is the day set apart for parades, halls,
etc. Many prominent Radical members
of Parliament wore shnmrncks ns hon-
topiorres in honsr of Ireland's patron
saint. The oldest politician In London
never saw the Irish so enthusiastic as
they nppeared to-,iav, and hopeful thai
the long severe conflict for Ireland's
rights are rapidly drawing lo a close, and
that next Patrick's Day the Tories would
witness happy mid contented Ireland in
full possession of home rule snd yet loyal
to England,
Mr. Si'hnadherst, Liberal caucus king,
in an interview this evening, said: "Irish'
men, and I may sav Emrlnnd nml Ihe
Liberals, are certainly justified In holding
the opinion that Ireland's day is not far
off, Events of the past few weeks have
undoubtedly hastened this event, and
now tlio Tories, who spenk of Ihe fall of
Hie government, as hchiL' nrolmble will,in
Hie next few months. There are not two
opinions thfll the present policy of opposition is lo the press for dissolution al the earliest possible
date. And noiv tbnt Sir Walter
Barttelet has publicly shaken hands
wilh Parnell. it would be impossible for
prejudice against the Irish to run ns high
us any former period. Tlie possibility nnd
policy of forcing the dissolution are much
discussed. There is one certain wny, thnt
of voting an address to
HKR MAJESTY
Praying for reference to the opinion ofthe
country, but that is burred bv the presence ofa hostile ministry. In London the
change in popular attitude towards the
Irish claim is so great as to give rise to
the most sanguine hopes of a great alteration. There is another way of compelling
the dissolution and that is'hy udvancing
tin's claim nn every proposal for carrying
forward the business of parliament and
one hears with undoubted truth that if
the 200 members of parliament are satis-
Hed that the country will support them
in claiming the dissolution, they have it
in their power to bring about such a eon
elusion. The session henceforth will display great unwillingness on the part of the
opposition to acknowledge the right of the
minister to slisreganl the altered feeling
of the country. Those who have attended
the
LIBERAL MEETINGS
This week, express much surprise ot tlie
remarkable change that has taken place
in the various constituencies where elections either took place this week or are to
come off within the next tew days. The
feature of these meetings hns been the
singing by several thousand of the English Liberals of the song entitled "Old
Ireland Shall Blossom Again," written by
Edwin Waugh, a famous Scotch writer
and composer. It has a catching uir and
is now considered the English Liberal and
Radical rallying song.
The anti-Boulaiigist campaign of M.
Tirard may possible hasten the crisis
which President Cornet has endeavored
to postpone when lie summoned Tirard to
form a ministry. The war on the
patriotic league comes to* Into. If reaction wns to be slopped Ihe government
wns needed which would abandon the
attempt to push the creetl of the faction
or use the administration as an instrument for n propungunda of the doctrine.
11 was necessary to show that an honest
administration and economy are possible
under ihe present constitution to respect
nn opinion of the ninjeritv of Frenchmen.
It is doubtful whether the possible Cnbluel
could have secured the support of the
chamber, a fresh election would tben become necessary nnd followed Inevitably by
nn acute political crisis. Hut Parisians
are preparing for an exhibition of unprecedented dimensions, tbe success of which
is rightly considered as a in alter affecting
at least the economic welfare of France.
M. Carootjuaturally enough shrinks from
a step which would be almosl sure to involve a failure af a great exhibition. M.
Tirard previously held the premiership
for two months and as politicians now
predict his term of oil'nv will be still
shorter ns President Carnot will endeavor
to summon the ministry that will do nothing but pass the budget which is taken
over intact from Floquet ministry and
array the hill and thus save tho exhibition from disaster. Tbe position at present is not what will become of the ulli-
mate result between the politicians of the
chamber and the re-aclion headed hy
Boulanger.

I leaders think with a peaceable method of
deputations, Here, then, is a large nml
formidable class ol malcontents, whose
demands ran scarcely lie approved, and
I can certainly not receive a speedy asseni
from a ministry dependent on the chamber. There is another very different class
of malcontents who are also apt to be
forgotten. The report, was published
nearly two years ago, and though il was
denied it was never si,own to be unfounded that a large number of general
Officers lias sent round Robin to General
Boulanger, asking him to settle with the
Chamber of Deputies In Cromwelliun
fashion.
There may he a professional reason foi
an eagerness of these highly plai ed soldiers. The weapons of the French army
nt this moment will, at least, hear comparison with Germany better than at auy
previous time. These various symptoms
on the condition of France are perhaps
enough to show how perilous is tbe position of Tirard and his friends.
SIONOR CRrSPI,
Italian Premier, has decided not to again
bring forward the obnoxious portions of
budget which recently ciiused the cabinet
crisis in Italy, ns he sees no possible
chance of the deputies conceding further
taxation to provide for military
objects. On the contrary, tho'v
are crying for retrenchment, both
in army nnd navy. Tlie event is of first
importance. It probably means that tin-

eru half of Italy resembles Ireland ir, the

Italy is 11 little belter off. The great plain
of the Po is a rich, agricultural region and
one or two of its lurge towns, at any rate
Turin, Milan, ami perhaps Bologna are
flourishing centres of manufactures or
trade since the consolidation of Italy into
the modern kingdom. The government
devoted its chief attention to the formation of a strong army. Tbe navy nppeared
to be nn absolute necessity for a state
with so long a coast line to" defend. The
army served as a great training school for
nations whose first wants wore discipline
nnd sense, national unity that hud been
acquired. But the work in spite of a good
administration and economy, have been
very costly for n system of universal compulsory service makes a great deduction
from working numbers ofthe community
to say nothing of taxation that must be
paid by remaining workers. Signer Crlspi,
who is the strongest premier Italy lias
had for years . special representatives of
alliance with Germany and Austria, now
admit that the military expedition reached its limit in Italy. What will he the

Letters From the People.
Eiiitob CorniLi:: Whal nre we to
think of Ihe recent decision of (be Licensing Hoard'.' Are I!,,- people of this city
forever to be bun,bugged and kept dowii
by men whose times are past? Wo rend
in history of men who were born before
their lime. It would strike a casual observer Hint Ihe majority of the Nanaimo
Licensing Board were born a long while
after theirs,
I would nol for one moment accuse that
honorable board of interested motives. I
believe lhal to a man tbev acted up lo
their lights. But in the full blaze 01 the
broad ligbl of Progress their beacon isj
indeed Insignificant, nnd the sooner
quenched the better for the progress of
this city. Lei us look all around us anil
see the marvellous strides the neighboring cities are making—Vancouver, Victoria, New Westminster,—solid strides,
too. These cities have hotels, public
bulldinas, theaters; und let the so-called
moralist whine as he may (obtaining
withal bis wealth by probably equally dubious means) themodera public will have
hotels wilh   proper a >nu,nidations and
refreshments; and If Ihe Pharisaical
members of the Licensing Board, who
"strain ai a gnal and swallow a camel,"
would combine to put down the gambling
hells and low thinking bars in this town
an I encourage in their place lirst-clnss
hotels, il, would be i,, their credit—aye,
much.
The appearance of some of tbe Nanaimo
hotels has been a proverb in this ProvinceTor years; and now, when an enterprising citizen endeavors to remedy this
and build iu hotel thai we would nol be
ashamed of, Ihe Licensing Hoard refuse
bim  a  II ind on  whal ground  I
si 1.1   ;;      to  know?    Was it   because
nin, ty- rson    signed a petition that
no more licenses should be grunted?

tho signatures of ninety-flvo crunks to
any proposition. If the people of Nanaimo
me to be compelled to pay their money
inio certain channels, only'the besi thing
they can do—one nnd all—is to sign
straight for prohibition; and among ihe

"CHINESE   GORDON."
The life of Charles George GobdonIb
one so closely linked wilh many of the
great events of history, from tbe day of
his first active service in the works be
fore Sebastopol to thai of bis lamented
death ai Khartoum, that to tell it with
tin1 side light of the great events will,
which il found contrast is a difficult task.
and one culling for the rarest gifts of historical discrimination and literary skill.
The history of this gnat soldier is of interest to all, showing, as it does, the fortitude and indomitable perseverance ii
this truly great and good man. A recent
work on the life of this man bv Sir William F. Butleb is worthy of perusal. Tin
author has carried nut the purpose will
which be begun with as great fidelity ns
it is likely will ever he possible to a man
who lived under tbe shadow of tbe event'
which end his history.
Although, for lack oi a belter word, the
work has been called a biography, il is
something both more and less—more in
the picturesqueness nf character drawing,
the analysis of character and the revela-
on ; less in minuteness of detail. The
render lays it down feeling Hal be knows
Gordon, but only to seek elsewhere foi
(be elaborated story of bis life. In this
very suggestiveness and the charm of entire sympathy are found tbe chief chnrn
of the book.
The author is first and always an uhnosl
reverent admirer of Gordon, as all who
know that great man's character must bo.
He regards the failure to rescue him al
Khartoum—the pretentious yet shillyshally work of attempted rescue done by
departments and commanders — as an
offense beyond condonenienl. These Facts
affect his work, and while there is no appearance of unjust coloring, there is much
interpolated criticism of men and methods
which begin at the Crimea and end in
Egypt, and decidedly lack pertinence. Tn
a hook of but 2,0 pages, treating so greal
a subject, it, is not wise to inveigh, however justly, against tho commissariat oi
the English forces nt Sebnstnpol; tbe extravagance of Ihe system of coast defenses
erected nearly forty years ago or the two
w»ll-known weaknesses of Lord Ci.ivi: ns
England's representative In India.
Tbe materials for tbe history of Gordon's earlier life are meager, lb- was ol
the Gordons whose names tire in evert
page of Scotch history from Ihe beginning. His father, like his grandfatliei
and everyone of his known ancestors,
was a soldier, and his childhood and boyhood were pnsecd in various garrisons i -
homeland abroad. Then to'Woolwich,fron
whence be emerged ns a second lieutenant
of engineers, nnd, in time, to tbe Crimea
and the opening of the career which ended so gloriously.
This career was not to be foreseen am!
few incidents have survived of Ihe childhood and boyhood of the future leader
Such as remain show a sensitive, high-
spirited, honorable boy, impatient am!
resentful of injustice to himself or others,
proud and kind, mirthful and thoughtful
—above all, conscientious.
Tbe slory of bis active life is historical
and the personal element is largely supplied from bis own lellers and journals.
already before Ihe public. The storv ol
his wonderful service in China und ofthe
effect upon the Chinese of bis charactei
so different from their own Is admirahh
told. To them a man who loved ami served a God other than their own and nevei
denied Him by word or deed ; who lived
to his profession and promises as well as
to bis faith ; who refused wealth and cared
nothing for rank and yet fought like a lion
for duty's sake, was almost n demi-god,
and as such too, tho world now regards
him. He was modest, single-hearted, unambitious, of worldly advantage, kind,
charitable, mirthful, determined—who
can group in proper order the qualities ol
a innn who. of all his time, besi exempli

burdensome? ('un nol the city stand the
payment of the interest in view of n,e
benefits which 11,1 will renp? Most ns-
suredlv we Ibinl; no, nnd nlso we bnve no
hesitation in saying thai if the ratepayers
view the mntier in the rlghl light, they
can come to no oilier conclusion.
The making i,f 1, eity requires 0
certain amouni of self-sacri-
iVe on the part of its citizens; ll requires faith, perserverance und Indomitable energy; it requires united action on
the part of those who aro identified with
the city nnd then action can but result In
the good of a]l, yVoaro not responsible
for the loon by-law. II is nol even (he
child of our adoption, bul "sin!; or swim.
live or die, survive or perish, we give our
hear! and hand to the vote." Why? because we earnestly believe that Ihe besi
interests of the city would be conserved
by adopting Ibis by-law, The whole city
would be benefitted, therefore each citizen would have bis share in tbe public
improvements. That is n selfish idea
which tenches a man to want every dollar
r,? municipal money spent before his own
door. We need to be liberal in order to
build up the city and give it thai place
which it should occupy among tho cities
of Ibis province. I.el us then raise $80,-
000 if we can; let os have it judictously
expended and we believe 11,nt the people
will nol regrei the result of their action.
