And increased success of the
people's paper, the
Nanaimo Mail.^vVirrrieJ:

It Is Profitable
Maybe it isn't I but it strikes me as tho worst kind
of a tax. It certainly adds fully 20 per cent, to
nearly everything you eat, drink and wear, while
it does not add one cent to your wages. For remember there is no duty on labor. That comes in
entirely free, save $50 on Chinamen. Maybe it
isn't a tax. However, that may be, it is a fact beyond dispute that if you deal at the
The People's Store
you will bo taxed considerably less than if you go
elsewhere. We have a largo stock of the best
Groceries, Provisions, Flour, Feed, Boots and
Shoes, Tinware and Graniteware. These are all
taxed of course, but we bought thom at the lowest
possible price, and wo tax you only a vory small
margin of profit, consequently our prices are lower
than elsewhere. The quality is tho very best, and
these facts you can easily prove for yourself by a
trial order.

The general election in this district on Tuesday last passed off
quietly, the result being as we expected. The Conservatives, however, appeared confident, and predicted a majority of 500 in this
city as certain for Mr. llaslam.
The Waterloo that f waited them,
not only in this district, but throughout the country, was a surprise
they were evidently not prepared
for; but if they had duly observed
the signs of the times as represented in the reliable journals of the
day, they would have been saved
much anxiety of mind and disappointment, besides much unnecessary trouble and expense. The verdict generally was a foregone conclusion, although in this city and
district the influences at work to
prevent a free expression of the will
of the people make the result more
creditable and gratifying. The ovation the successful candidate received when the result was made
known, and his grateful and patriotic response to the plaudits of the
populace, will long be remembered.

The People Triumph.
The Government has been defeated—justly and expectedly. The
regime of incompetency and corruption has been condemned hy an
indignant people; and the Nationa
Policy, that deceptive shibboleth
under which thc Government operated for the benefit of the classes as
against the masses, has received its
just deserts. Of course, champions
of the Government assign all manner of excuses—personal, local and
otherwise—for this result; but there
is only one explanation—that of
insupportable weakness on the one
side and overwhelming strength on
the other, not only in purity, hut
in soundness of principles and policy. The country has been redeemed from the control of an unscrupulous party and a vicious policy, and the power for evil has l>eeii
torn from their champion and leader, stigmatised by one of his own
party organs as "the prince of
political cracksmen." The effects
of this policy and the machinations
of this party are far-reaching, and
the result as expressed was only a
question of time for its achievement to be realized. It is gratifying to record that Hritish Columbia
has done her duty and elected men
of progresive ideas and, knowing
their duty, will dare to do it. More
especially are the electors of Van-
Vancouver Island District to be
congratulated on their judgment
and courage, who, though contend-
ing against great odds with the"
powers that he (or were), unflinch-
ingly supported the people's candi-
date, young and untried though he
be, recognizing in him the ability,!
the energy and determination of!
which this district has stood so
long in need. We predict a bright
future for him in the political tield
of the Dominion, and he will bear
with him to Ottawa the sincere
wishes of thc community whom lie
represents for his success and advancement, and who have every confidence that his efforts will redound
to the benelit of this district.
From a Conservative source, we
learn that party will not have more
than DO seats in the new parliament of 216 members, reversing the
majority to about 40 majority for
the Liberal party, Three constituencies iii which elections were held
Tuesday have not yet been heard
from, and iii Chicoutimi the election dues not take place until the
80th, nnd this district will probably follow the example of Quebec
and return a supporter of the illusions Laurier.
Victoria refused  to  join in  thc I
march of progress, but the election
has  demonstrated  beyond  further
cavil thnt Col. Prior is not a full-
fledged cabinet minister.
it is a credit to the district that j
an   honorable, square   light  pre- j
vailed against methods of a totally
different character.
Burrard and Westminster have
fallen in line and will swell the
great tidal wave of Liberalism.
Even Hugh Uetcherlife Deiupsey
says he is now a convert to Liberalism.
Bostock won Yale-Cariboo in a
Several labor papers, especially of
the extremely "progressive" sort, are
still boosting the Arena magazine.
This is a gross inconsistency that
can only be accounted for on cither
one of two suppositions. Either the
editors are insincere or they have
been fooled by the sophistical
Flower. Every man in the reform
movement, and particularly those
in the journalistic sphere, should
learn to recognize an enemy in disguise as the most dangerous of all
foes. Thnt is what Flower is. Tbe
Arena is printed by rats. Leave it

On Hip Nomination ol' McKinley nnt!

Loudon. June IS.—Nearly all the
morning papers comment upon the results ol tiie St. Louis convention yesterday.
The Chronicle says: "Yesterday's
ballots show a high tariff and sound
money to be tlte watchword of the Republican party, We would hearlily con
grntulate the Republicans upon lhe second of these if we did not fear that oni
Words might be used to injure them,
The high tariff would undoubtedly injure our trade, but we must take comfort in the thought that nothing the
I lilted States could do would expose our
commercial Interests to so gnat a danger as would free trade in America.
"With regard Io Mr. McKinley's personal character no word has been heard
here which is not to his honor. We
offer him our congratulations upon the
position whicli he has attained ill the
eyes and hearts of so many of his countrymen."
The Graphic says: "Mr. McKinley
will huve his hands full if he coiiscieu- j
tlously tries to realize the platform adapted, Hint of an emphatic declaration
in fnvor of gold side by side with a
solemn profession of ultra protection-,
The Times snys: "Mr. McKinley won i
the   lirst  heat   ill   lhe   president inl   race
bauds down, but tbe bnllle is uol Until- j
ly  won.     Tin- silvcriles appear  to find
some  comfort In  lhe coincidence  In lhe,
date of Waterloo, which seems to them
an  evil omen   for  Ibe   leader  who  put'-,
chased   victory   at  tbeil   expense,     l'os-
sibly   the   snnie     spirit   prevails   in   the i
Republican   constituencies,  especially   in j
the     Western   States       .Moreover    lho j
Democratic   party    have still to sei tic
both on a platform and candidate, and
even if not tempted us n party to adopt
the  silver   plunk,   tbe   coalition   of   the
Republican    and   Democratic    silvciito
dissidents might yet bear out  the views
of some    competent    observer of American affairs, that the future will show
the   line   of  eli-avertige   in   the   United
States between the east and the west,
scarcely   less    deep   or  less    dangerous
than   that   which   formerly   divided   the
north and south."
The financial nrticle in tin; Times
snys: "Speculators in the American
railroad market yesterday were disappointed. The public did not come in
ns was hoped on the mere announcement that a gold plank had been Included in the Republican platform. The
explanation   is   that   lhe   public   wisely
determined to wait until n satisfactory
solution of the question is in a fair way
of being attained. American public
men nnd journalists who talk as if European Investors nud speculators hnd
some object in holding aloof from Am-
erienn securities are utterly mistaken.
Nothing would please the people here
nnd on flic continet bettor thnn to buy
American securities if those Inventors

there i.s a prospect of the currency sys-!»
tom of the United States being reformed, but hnve beon disappointed loo often to commit ourselves to any extent
until ii definite declaration is expressed
in a vote of the people of the United
States in fnvor of gold. This, we nre
sure, would be followed by a gient
change in the attitude of European capitalists provided it is accompanied by
legislation placing the treasury in it position to make Hi estaudard effective."
The Dally News snys: "Tlic important fact is, not Mr. MeKiuley's nomination, which wns generally anticipated, but thut he wus compelled to stand
on a gold platform. Tin? significance
of the adoption of the gold standard is
two-fold. It shows tlmt. the great party
which is now believed to control the
political destines nf thc I'liUe,! States
repudiates nil designs of tampering with
the currency. It also forces Mr. McKinley to figlit rather as a mono-metal-
list. than as a protectionist. President
Cleveland wns the first to relieve the
Democrats from the suspicion of financial Unsoundness, but the Democrats
are not nil orthodox economists. Like
Mr. Cleveland, Mr. McKinley will hnve
to uphold the flag of commercial honesty.     The     Republican   party   may  bo

Which sets forth lhe right of bishops to
Instruct their clergy on matters of a religious clini'iicler.    The school  question
Is then staled to be n religious question, J
After doing this file clergy  will re-renil ;
that part of the mnmleuietit which in-1
smuts their flock to vole for only enn- |
di Infes  who nie  pledged  to support  re-
nie Mill   legislation.     Having   thus   read
the authority of the bishop to direct flu-
clergy iu this matter, und thnt direction
being tlmt nil Catholics nru to vote for
candidates only  who arc pledged to re-
medial    legislation,   the  clergy   are   Instructed  to Insist  nml  force  upon  their
peoplo    the   necessity     of  obeying  ihis
command.    They are to do all this witli
firmness nnd strength.
Sir Charles Tupper is snid to approve
of this course of the bishops, but it will

This year's sports at Wellington which
is held as a Dominion Day celebration,
far eclipse anything that has previously
been held at that end of the island. A
noticeable feature in the programme is
that nearly every prize is given in cash,
a sufficient guarantee that everything is
genuine. With respect to the bicycle
races, tiie value of which amounts to
over $500, the coinmittee are offering
inducements higher than has ever yet
been attained in British Columbia, and
probably on the whole I'acilic slope; the
professional prizes are running as high
as fflOO first prize, while in the amateur
class three of the races reach their limit,
viz*. $25.	
The Bicycle committee of the Dominion Day celebration, Wellington, have received entries of Evans,
Perrill and Freemen of San Francisco, Campbell of Spokane, Dow of
Taeoma and Staver of Porl land.
Entries must all be in this evening.
The Wellington Colliery Bund wll|

Harrison's circular says: "During the
week there have been 11 arrivals from
tbe coast mines with 20,40" tons of coal;
the St. Mungo from Swansea witli 2S77
tons, und Springburn from Australia
with 8005 tons. The liberal imports
from the northern mines tiiis week have
relieved the market, although not two
foreign cargoes have come to band, all
tin- foreign arriving since Mny li). It is
a long period since il, bus been recorded
that we have bail but two foreign ear-
goes of coal to arrive here within 2s days.
It clearly shows how independent we
have become on tbe fuel question, i. c.
that our coast output is ample I'm our
requirements. Ofcoure tt would work
a serious hardship on our consumers if
they were left entirely In the hands of
the northern mines, as tbe low prices
ruling are entirely regulated by the delivery cost of Australian and ISngllsh;
if these latter were retired from the market for an indefinite period, much higher
values would be established for our
coast coals. Tbe Australian strike is
still in force and may last through Ibis
month, although recent cables Intlmato
an early settlement; il has already
lasted long enough to seriously dismember business."
