Ihe prosperity was apparent, as members on both sides of the House appeared
to be in better humor than last year. The
estimates of revenue for the year com
meneing 1st July next were in round
numbers$700,000, an increase over the
estimated revenue of (he present yenro!
108,000, the principal heads of increase
being; Land sales, |10,000; timber royalty antl licenses, .$1(1,000; rent, fJ5000;
real property, personal property and provincial revenue tax, about jii0,000.
These increases were not the result of
any increased vote of taxation, but were
natural and resulted from the Increased
prosperity nnd business of the country
and indicated in a measure its growth'
The revenue for the present year would
amount to about $80,000 over what it was
estln ated at.
Th" expenditure for the present year
was set down al the large sum of ijsil-t,-
351, or $78,605 over ihe estimates for this
vear. The principal items of increase
were: Public works, $80,000, education.

0 pav all the costs of education than t

narking that the country whoso i eep'e
ire said In be most generally educated

h"ii at school, in proportion to population—I refer to Prussia where there are
170 children attending the elementary

month in country places, and twt T.ty-llv
'ants a month i:i lowns. Our entirely free
lysleiu, however, might be an improve-
iient on the system in Prussia.
Hon. Mr, Turner then dealt elaborately

is compared with other years, and he
hired (baton the 801b June nexl there
could be the sum 01 $263,000 on hand to
i> "in Iho year with. In reference to the
raising of another loan he did not think
1 was necessary, hut should unforeseen
ircurnstances make it advisable to raise
one, he did not see anything to dread in
it. He would like to'see a bold effort
made in this direction for the purpose of
making lines of railway in the province.
They would be real colonlztng roads and
would develop the resources if any work
oul,I do so.
Mr. Grant in the absence of the leader
of the oopositton rose to reply. !!•■
'bought tin,! Ihe minister of finance luusl
feel himself wry secure in his position
when be saw fit to make so short a speeeh
in presenting the estimates for the year.
Many statements had been made by tne
minister which could not be substantiated !
by facts. The estimates for last year wee
far from being accurate and it would be
found that the government were equally
incapable of forming a correct estimate
•bis year. He thought that the Increase
in revenue was proportionately small in
proportion to the increase in population,
The cost of carrying on tlie goyerniiienl
had greatly increased since seven
or        eight      years.        In regard
to Ihe differential tax demanded
from Nanaimo, Westminster, Vancouver
and Victoria cities ,; sidei   !  unfair
ind unjust.   The education of children i
the cities cost less, Instead of more on un
average in the districts on account of the
greater number attending.   It had been

would   perhaps  nol    have   raised   1 a"1
strenuous objection  had it been     ■  pit
what was required for Ihis purpo
more than double thla amount 1 asasketl
lie thought the government had no right
lo demand this differential tax and conic
no! support  their claim in the Sil|
Court.  In regard to the $230,000 den
e,I   from  Ihe t'.   P,   I,'..   he had  iilwayi
elaimed that it could not he obtained, and
the announcement of tic hon. Attorney
General a few days ago that the govern-
cent did not   Intend  to pursue the company any  further  showed  that  he  had
been right.   The increase of the ordinary
revenue should  have   justified  a   much
larger expenditure than had been made in
ihe matter of public works.   The revenue
'laving  been   greatly increased,  and   no
public works  baring been transacted to
show for  it, led him  lo  think that there
nust  be  something   wrong.     Railways |

BRITISH NAVAL STRENGTH.,
An American exchange in speaking of
tbe colossal scheme ol" naval expansion I
which tbe British government proposes,'
savs in comparison that tbe plans of the
Vnited States are modest in the extreme. \
It goes on to say further that notwith-
Standing this, there is no doubt that with
a moderate annual expenditure in the1
construction of ships oi the type most
needed liy the Vnited States, and a con-1
tinuance of the admirable methods and
management which characterized the late
administration they will in a few years
have a navy which for their puposes will
be quite as effective as the P.ritisb navy
is for theirs. It says: "The Vnited States
are not under tlie necessity and it would
be a foolish waste of money to run a race
with Great Britain in the construction of
naval monsters, each of which is likely
by the improvement in gnus and the
development of torpedoes, to bocome obsolete soon after it is placed in commission. The cruisers ought, however, to be
the hest and fastest In the world, and
there should be enough nf them to drive
from the seas the commerce of any nation
with which the United States may become
involved in war." It Las been tbe aim
of Great Britain in which in the opinion
of critics of its nnval policy, it has not
altogether succeeded to maintain an effective navy equal in strength to the combined navies of any two other powers.  The
nmeiidmert to this effect of which Lord
Charles Beresford in the discussion of the
naval estimates gave notice, simply expressed a statement which hns general
recognition except among the Radicals
Tn the effort to secure this result, the
British naval expenditure, whether the
plans have been well devised or not, have
been enonoous—inr in excess of those nf
any other power. Tne complain!
has been that the expenditures have not
produced sufficiently large results; that
much ot the money has been blindly
and foolishly wasted. Five years ago.
when the naval situation urns much discussed, Lord North nation, tbe first lord
of the Admiralty, in comparing Ibe English with the French fleet, stated that
England had then ready for present action thirty sbipB of modern tvpe, with a
displacement of 210,430 tons, whilo France
had nineteen oi 127,828 tons. England
has since then expended many millions
in naval construction, yet that the government regards the navy as still greatly
deficient is shown by its proposition to
add seventy ships with an aggregate tonnage of 1110,0(10. Eight of these ships, the
dispatches say, are to be of 1,400 tons
each, which would make them individually larger tliiin any ship now in commission in the British navy. With the
tonnage of tbe two lesser monsters nf
9,000 tons, tbe addition to tlie naval
strength in men of war would be 1110.000
tons, or nearly two-thirds of tbe effective
fighting Strength of the navy as it was reported in 1884. What will stick In ihe
crop of tbe British taxpayer is the fad
that alter tbe expenditure of $100,000,000,
now snid to be necessary, is made, there
is no assurance that the government then
in power will not have another scheme
involving an enormous outlay.
Great Britain spends a large sum annually on its army. It does not maintain
the colossal  establishment   of the great
continental powers, but tho cost iu relatively much greater, When tlie extraordinary naval expenditures are added, il
cannot boast, in comparison with its
neighbors, of tlie lighter pecuniary burdens which tbe necessity of being always
prepared for war always impose upon it.
It costs it just as much ns any of them in
direct outlay, notwithstanding Itsfinsular
position, though indirectly it lias largely
the advantage because a much smaller
number of men are, through its military
establishment, withdrawn from gainful
pursuits than is tlie esse with nnv of the
great European powers.
EDITORIAL   NOTES.
siblo have been heaped upon him if he
sometimes wrings his bands in despair at
tl, •  perversity   of the   world in general
Who  can   wonder ?    If,   sometimes  he
q i estions tbe eternal fitness of  things
who that knows the troubles antl sorrows
with which  bis life is beset, can blame
bin'.'    And   yet people  will  expect that
lie news dished up to tlieni must be the I
I freshest and crispest; it must not be stale
and above all it must be palatable.    F.acb
individual expects that bis own particular
, deas on  any subject must receive from '
| he editor the utmost consideration, and
iu fact, he is oftentimes expected to adopt
each man's views and sink bis own indi-;
vidnality completely.   His   light,  if  hei
has any must  be put under the bushel,
and in short, like charity, he is expected
to hope all things, believe all things—and 1
no  doubt  about   It, endure all   things. I
And  truly often  it is no wonder that he
asks,  with   him of  old,   "Is there not
balm iu Gilead?"   Well, there is very
little in tlie newspaper (lilead.    We speak
from experience.

FOOTBALL.
The Rovers have been devoting some
time to trying to find a suitable field to
play their match game with the Comox
team. Vp to the present they have not
been able to find a ground to their liking.
It would be a pity if such an interesting
game had to be" plaved at Wellington.
Captain Hawthornthwaite says that probably his team will play the return match
with the Mainland on Saturday the 30th
instant.
BOOTS POH TH» HA1BOB.
Our harbor is to be rendered safer by
the introduction of three new bouvB.
One is to be placed so as to indicate the
channel between Protection Island and
Jack's Point, and the other two will be
UBed to replace others at preiBDt in. the!
bav. Any indications of this sort tending to convince those who embark their
wcnllli upon the waters that every thing
is being done to ensure their safety that i"
possible, will be welcomed by all who
have the welfare of our city at heart.
.1 CUTTLE IN USE.
Early Wednesday morning a slight disagreement took place between two of our
citizens which, after the usual personalities bad been indulged in. one of tliein
took some remark made by bis opponent
to heart ami went for bim with a bottle,
and In a very short time rendered him
"hors tie combat" leaving bis
enemy on the field with a
a large scalp wound. Dr. Praeger dressed
the wound and Tom O'Connell started on
the track of the slugger who knowing the
energy and vigilance of our night watchman, skipped the town.
the long mtmriK.
There probably is not one person in
town who has not bad some remark to
make of an uncomplimentary nature relative to tbe tumbledown state of that portion of the Long bridge known as Peck's
sidewalk. Why does not the corporation
either remove it or earn the gratitude of a
long-suffering public by re-building the
wretched structure. The sidcwnlk now in
use on the bridge is frequently insufficient
lo accommodate tbe pedestrians, noticeably so on Suntlav night when the congregations from the various churches wend
their way home. It's chief fault is its
narrowness. Here is a chance for one of
the city councillors to distinguish him-
himseif.
MATRIMONIAL.
Everyone here who remeniberB Dr.
Scharschmidt will be pleased to hear that
lie is to be married to-night to Miss Butler
of Saanich. Miss Butler is the daughter
of a Crimean officer, who settled in that
district. Dr. Scharschmidt was a passenger on the steamer Amelia yesterday
from Comox, in which town he settled to
practice his profession. The happy couple will lie marrictl to-night at the home
of the bride and then will start on their
honeymoon across the Sound. Owing to
the Doctor being the only man in his profession in Comox, they will lie unable to
make a long trip, but will return Iu
their residence in Comox by the
steamer Amelia next Wednesday. We
wish them all happiness anil prosperity.
ABOUT nous.
Everybody in Nanaimo seems to have
a dog, at least if one may judge by the
numbers seen on the streets. There nre
suflieiriit iii the city for thai purpose and
perhaps a few over. The Nanaimo ridg
does not licar much resemblance to tile
Eastern Pariah that slinks along the
streets of Constantinople with bis boms
sticking through bis skin. Nol much!
The Nanaimo specimen generally seems
to keep his frame well covered, thereby
testifying to Ilic general good nature of
the inhabtants or the carelessness of the
butchers. He frequently rousts In a conspicuous place in tbe middle of the sidewalk during the heat of the,lav, the better
to reserve bis strength nml energies l"
condnct a canine concerl during the small
boui.i of the morrtlng. May Im there is a
dog tax in tlie city, if so the municipal
coffers must be overflowing with shekels.
METHODIST   CHURCH.
The plans and specifications for the
erection of the proposed Methodist church
at the corner of Wallace and Franklyn
streets were yestertlay submitted to a
meeting, consisting of the pastor, Rev.
Joseph Hall and the trustees of the Methodist Church, and were accepted by them.
The building will have a sealing capacity
of lioO persons in the auditorium, but ill
case of need it can be increased to over
8 !D by using the gallery and lecture room.
The choir will sit in the organ loft, behind
the pulpit. The church will be 77 feet in
length, Tl feet wide and l>7 feet high.
Tlie seats are to be arranged in a semicircle on an inclined lloor, so that a lady's
largo bat will not deter those in the rear
from seeing the minister. There are lo
lie four entrances, two on Franklyn and
two on Wallace street, so that the building can be emptied of its occupants in ti
verv Bhort space of time. The church
will bo heated by hot air pipes. The basement will be used as a kitchen in the
event of church suppers and will also con-
ttlin the heating furnace. Sunday school
will bo in the lecture room. The plans
call bir a Gothic style of architecture and
an imposing spire i+jfect high. Stained
glass windows will greatly add to the effect of the hulldlna. Tenders will, we are
tnlil.be called for very soon and opera
liofis commenced in the beginning of
April. Everybody will congratulate the
Methodists for their endeavors to enhance
the beauty oi this eity.

Letters From the People,
Editor Courier :—Oh Dear! Oh Dear'
Inst as I thought the "old man ofthe
mountain" would fall short of the marl;
In my opinion ihe old man is failing very
fast by the smelt, op his bieatu and the
"Babbling undertaking" will be too much
for him, although he has got "specs" to
assist him. Better get more help and trv
again, as the amount of knowledge he is
giving to the people is wearing him out,
and be cannot stand it at bis time of life.
Poor old man.       Hai.ibukton Stbkbt.
Editor Courier I—There is an old saying thai "Onlookers see most of the
game," and ns like myself you are a newcomer to this town, being only two or
three days ahead of me, perhaps you Will
allow n.o a little space to nolo one. or two
things which have occurred to me while
watching with a certain amount of interest anil curiosity the various events in
this city.
let. With respect to the loan by-law.
which was lost on Monday, I would re-
maik that although, it appears to me, the
"Free Press" did not put a correct issue
before its readers, 1 hold that journal
blameless of causing its defeat, from its
thorough impotence to affect anv issue
whether for good or for evil. As far as I
have had any opportunity of judging that
paper carries no weight at all in the city,
but beyond the city I amagine it does the
reverse of good, because to those away
who do not know its true relations to the
opinions of the citizens it must convey
the idea that we are very cramped indeed
in our ideas, and have bo desire to improve a town which nature ordained
should be second to none in the province,
and which is only retarded in ita progress
by the limited knowledge, experience and
wisdom of sonic of its ancient inhabitants.
T sav a false : istie was put before the
voters by the '" ■ . Press" and with your
permission I 1 demonstrate whal I
mean.
The "Fr, I " urged as a gn 1
reason ;c . : lie town that the inter
on the sum of 430,000 would be a sum of
$2,000 a year and it did not remind its
readers that if ihe town is to grow ll"'
expenditure on roads, etc., must grow ton.
Now Ibis increase can onlv be met hy nn
increased rate, and t ranting f"r the snk
of argument that such rate is levied what
will it amount to? probably Borne f2,00n
or $3,000 a vear—and what improvements
can be effected with a sum so small?
Whatever is attempted with so petty a
sum can only be done picemeal.
I am one of those who believe that
there is 11 future before this province nnd
if time proves that this is correct, I aslt
what is to hinder this from being the
most important town, seeing that we
have here practically an inexhaustible
coalfield?
The onlv thing that can hinder it is a
cheese paring policy on the part ot the
council and real estate owners.
Does it require any great amount of
wisdom or foresight in a property owner
to be assured that as the town improves
the value of real estate must improve,
but that unless the owner wakes up and
tries to moke Nanaimo something belter
than a mere mining camp, real estate instead of Increasing in value will decrease?
From little things I have heard about
town I amagine another reason the loan
by-law was voted down in that the citizens
have little faith in the aldermen, they
think that the greater proportion of any
sum will be spent in one ward to the exclusion or to the detriment of the otners.
In this cennection I would point out to
the citizens that it would be well to consider the city as a irliole and not to allow
such a small matter as ward jealousy to
hinder the growth of the town.
2nd. There is much of the pioneer feeling in tliis town; newcomers are not
wanted antl are not supposed to have the
right to criticize or express opinions.
Why ? Because they bring in a certain
amount of freshness and are not rusty
and mossbacky.
There is an old saying that "a creaking
gate hangs long," but there is no reason
why it should, and the sooner that the
"creaking gates" of Nanaimo give way to
those of more modern manufacture the
better it will be for your town.
3rd. The action (if the licensing board
ia certainly nut calculated to inspire confidence. Nanaimo has long enjoyed a
most nnenviahle reputation among the
inhabitauts nf the Sound cities and even
tbo-e dwelling i       her parts of this great
THIS AND THAT.
Devil's Lake wonts to be the capital of
,ne of the new States. We don't believe the
iieople of Dakota will consent to having their
laws made in such a place. The average
Legislature will give any town a bad name,
nit that is no reason why the suggestion of I
an inferno at the State capital should be '
'.Mixed to every official paper.
Grocer  (to clerk)—What   arc you doing j
iherc,   Henry?     Henry—I am  picking the ,
dead Hies out of these dried currants. Grocer,
—Vou just let 'em alone.     Do you suppose
that 1 am running this business for fun?    Do
you ihink lhat I comedown here early in lhc
morning antl   toil all day just for the spirit of
the thing!    Voujust let these flics alone?
Hobby (to young Featherly)—What kind
ef music were you playing oa the piano last
night, Mr. Featherly? Featherly—Whal
kind of music, Hobby? Why, I played selections from different operas. It's called
operatic music. Hobby?—Then Clara was
wrong. I heard her tell 111a that you had
been entertaining her with some alleged
music.
"Wife. I have decided lo send Harry to
college." "College! I thought you were
joing lo take bim into the office and aiake a
business maeofhim." "His natural inclinations are toward a college education. Ik-
tells me he has got a curve pitch, he's a
member of two boat clubs, he's handy with
the gloves, and very fond of pugilism, and 1
think that Vale or Harvard is th« best place
for htm."
He—Will you marry me? She—Wait a
minute. [K\it] (Reappearing with a shotgun.) Hold upyeurhands! Higher yet! 1
am sorry to say, Mr. Brown, thai I cau only
be a sister to you. You must pardon my
seemingly rude conduct, but so many young
women are getting killed nowadays by rejected suitors that I thought a little precaution would not be out of place.

Why"   Rome "f your correspondents
'have stated Unit some of the bench
arc interested in tic liquor business,
anil thai Ibe reason is one affecting their
own pockets. 1 have been waiting from
day lo dav, hoping and expecting thai
thiBstatement would ba denied; but as
no contradiction bis been forthcoming, 1
am reluctantly compelled to believe lhat
, there must be a certain quantity of truth
! in it.   And,  indeed circumstances seem
: tp corroborate the charge, for there are
several saloons in vonr city which evidently exist only for the sale of liquor,
places of unattractive exterior of no enviable notoriety, and the mere existence
of such places "goes far to prove that ihe
Bench were not actuated only by moral
considerations. I am in sympathy with
those who seek to keep the liquor traffic
within due bounds, and that verv feeling
of sympathy makes me say give licenses
to sell liquors only to such places as provide proper accommodations for meals
and sleeping, and refuse them altogether
to places which seek only to exist from
the sale of strong drink and harboring
gamblers.
4th. Cleanliness is next to godliness,"
yet our mayor tells us tliat dirty sidewalks area mark of the large business
dooe here. Why not curry this to its logical conclusion, antl request our aldermen
and merchants to go about with besmeared faces, dirty linen and encourage
them to vie with each other in presenting
tlie most unkempt and disorderly appearance to advertise the fact that this is a
large business centre; ami then Nauaimo
might take for her motto some such
phrase as this: "Filthiness is the surest
sign of riches."
I am afraid I have trespassed too much
on vour valuable space at this time, but
with vonr consent I will adtlress a few
more" observations on some otlur occasion, providing you will devote more
spice to an Ousr.i.vE :.
