i The schoolroom of the Wallace

the purpose of bidding good-bye to
the Kev. Mr. Maitland and his estimable wife, who are leaving Nanaimo to assume a new field of

I ver. Alderman A. Wilson being
called to the chair, a good nnd varied programme of music, addresses
and readings was successfully carried out and listened to wilh pleasure by llie audience.
First on the programme was a
duet rendered by Mrs. VV. and Mrs.
U. Westwood, solos by Miss L. Dobeson and Mrs. I). Renwick, reading
by Mrs. H. Smith. Addresses were
given by Revs. Manuel and Sutherland, Mr. Dempster and 11. Smith,
all of whom spoke highly of Mr.
; Maitland's ability as a speaker and
Mr. R. Smith, on behalf of the
managers and trustees (if the church,
presented an address, accompanied
by a well-filled purse of the yellow
metal on behalf of the congregation,
taking the reverend gentleman
completely by surprise.
Mr. Maitland eloquently and
feelingly replied for the kind expressions contained in the address
and thanked them for the handsome present—not fnr its intrinsic
I value, but more especially for the1
good wishes accompanying it—con-1
eluding by expressing the wish that
the congregation would extend to
their new pastor, Mr. Hall, n hearty
reception, in whom Ihey would lind
a good man.
|   .The audience then betook themselves  to the  plentiful   supply  ofi
cake, coffee and tea—Mrs. Dobeson
and Mrs. Welhvood kindly supplying the   cream—the  ladies of the,]
congregation vieing with each other'
in their attendance.
Ve reporter withdrew unwillingly ;
from the delicious cake and coffee
and joining with the  others  bade
Air. and Mrs. Maitland good-bye.

Planta moved that the license question
be left to the Police Magistrate for advice. If he will study clause 2)1) of the
Municipal Act, he will lind that they
acted more Indiscreetly than Mayor Davison in his action re Constable Thompson- Clause 20!) rends:
No police magistrate, and nn partner

act as solii-itor, agent or counsel in any
cause, matter, prosecution or proceeding of a criminal nature; nor shall such
police magistrate, partner or clerk act
as  aforesaid in  any case  which by law

Now, had the aldermen who voted in
favor of Mr. Planta's motion been aware
j of the above clause, in ail fairness to
them I will say that it would never have

The opposition candidate, accompanied by Mr. (.I. F. Cane, returned
from  a  canvass of Cowichan last
uesday. While there they made
a personal canvass of a large number of the settlers, and took occasion on Monday evening to publicly
address the electors in the hall at
lunean's. The hall was packed
when Mr. J. C. Harris was voted to
the chair and the meeting opened.
The chairman, in a few complimentary remarks introduced their ''future member."
Mr. Mclnnes -.vas well received,
and throughout his remarks was
frequently interrupted by bursts of
applause which showed that he had
the approval of.the large gathering.
He confined himself principally to
the school question, corruption of
the government, the decline of the
Conservative party, and the unjust
treatment given this district. Hia
positions were defined on all these
mat I ers in clear, forcible language,
which won for him many new supporters.
Mr. Cane addressed the meeting
on the trade question and clearly
explained to those present the Liberal policy, and warned them against
the malicious, misleading distortions being flaunted before the
farmers as the Liberal policy. In
this lie was very happy and evidently satisfied the farmers present
of the advantages of the policy he
Mr. Duncan also spoke on behalf
of the candidate.
After several questions were put
to the candidate and promptly and
satisfactorily answered, the meeting adjourned after unanimously
passing the following resolution:—
Moved bv Mr. Duncan and seconded by Mr. Herd, "That this
meeting express its confidence in
Mr. Mclnnes, and its approval of
the principles he has advocated."
The meeting is agreed to be the
best political campaign meeting
ever held in Duncan's, and from its
success and the pledges of support
everywhere so freely given, it seems
certain that North Cowichan will
record a strong vote against coercion and corruption.

Haslam to reply, assuring him of
hein}; allowed all the time he wished.
Mr. llaslam was said lo have spoken better on this occasion than he
was ever known to have spoken
before, but—well, comparisons are
odious. Mr. llaslam was given a
courteous but strictly cold-storage
reception. As he attempted to defend his position on the school ijues-
tion and his declaration on the floor
of the House that he represented
the sentiment of his district he was
met with profound silence. Toward
the close, however, he made a Biblical quotation, whereat three dear
old ladies and a Sunday-school
teacher in the gallery broke into
vigorous applause. Unfortunately,
Mr. Haslam referred to the Golden
Rule, " Do unto others what ye
would they should do unto you."
Mr. llaslam admitted that, as a
citizen of British Columbia, he
would not like to see separate
schools forced on this province by
the Dominion Government at the
field with their spiritual weapons.
The influence of the mandement
cannot he confined to Quebec, and
will have the effect in other provinces of renewing irritations and
antipathies that those who entertained them were becoming ashamed
to avow. The issue thus raised is
plain enough. If the Quebec hierarchy can come hack from participating in a general election with a
majority in Parliament pledged to
do its will and gained hy a coercive
marshaling of the hosts of the
church at the poll?, il would have
to be recognized that the supremacy
of the civil power of Canada is a
mere phrase, having no correspondence with actual fads. We have
hope, however, that a proportion of
their people will resent the dicta-
lion thus attempted and will decide
from the citizens' standpoint what
their course as citizens should he.

into one, not whether Parliament

Fearful Loss of Lite and Property in
St. Louis antl Elsewhere.
St. Louis, May 2H.—At 7:15 a.m. the
loss of life iu St. Louis uud East St.
Louis was conservatively estimated nt
between -100 nnd iiOO, but the dentil
list is constantly growing, as additional
details of the horror come to hand.
Over 200 persons are known to have
perished in this city, at least that number lost their lives across the river, and
the number injured will reach into -he
thousands. Tbe south side of St. Louis
near the river suffered most, lu Cast
St. Louis, following the line of the
river, buildings were razed by thousands, trains wrecked, boats sunk, le'e-
-,'rapli wire crippled in every direction,
m fact everything in Ihe cyclone's path
ivas laid wasle. The course of the
Storm was from lhe southwest lo lhe
northeast. There is no mentis at this
hour of estimating the loss of life on
the river, but a number of excursion
steauiei-s were sunk, and it is probable
thai hundreds of passengers went down
with them. It is impossible to get reports from, the police stations, where
many of the dead und injured luiee
been taken, consequently any slate-
ineiits in this regard tqi to the present
time ure llie merest conjectures, There
is no doubt, however, Unit the loss of
life in greater than anything lhe country has known since the disaster nt
One thing which aided the storm iu
ils course of destruction was llie valley
which  separates  North   1  South   St.
Louis, along which the railroads entering the cily from Ihe east and west

of life would nol have been so giva**.
But at this point there is n slope, thus
affording a means of egress for -.he

miles, ns the reports from lhe various
railroad stations show that no news

no attempt is being made by the
Provincial Government lo try ami
have these laws enforced or amended so as lo be practicable. Thnt
Government is apparently too cowardly rn- loo venal lo enforce any
legislation thai would curtail lhe
privileges of certain local capitalists
who have so long beon the power
behind the throne nl Victoria, In
our opinion, lhe main relief must be
sought from ilm Dominion Parliament. The Dominion Government
have already conceded the principle
of a discriminating lax against the

thai tax fixed at an amount that;
will be, to use Mr. Mclnnes'phrase,
"practically prohibitive." As to the
abstract justice of such discrimination, we ate not now concerned.
Clerical assemblies and missionary
associations have, we believe, in
Eastern Canada passed strong resolutions against the imposition of
ihis lax on Chinese entering the
country, lint our good brethren of
the east look at (he matter from an
entirely theoretic and oomfortahle
standpoint. They, do not sec lho
practical evils of Chinese competition around them; they do not see
their own people walking thestreets
idle because Chi no-e hold their positions at starvation wages; the
sleek city cleric witli his fine spun
theories of justice and his salary
of three thousand is beyond lhe
range of pulpit competition with a
converted Chinaman at two hundred a year. Theoretically, nil who
are born into lhe world may have
an equal right to live und compete
for a living in uny part of the
world, just as nil who lire thrown
into tiie en have an equal right lo
swim for the first plank in sight.
Hut there is no doubt about it,
those who get to lhe plank first will
not allow others to come on and
overcrowd it to (lie detriment of all
concerned. And it would make
very little difference if some pious
individuals on the shore should
shout lo them about lhe principles
of nalural justice. Self-protection
is ihe litsi law of mil nre ami preeminently tho rock bottom principle
governing the relations of one race
or country with another. I' is for
the purpose of protecting our own
people, of retaining our own province and resources for ourselves and
our children, for the purpose of
maintaining our own standard of
living and civilization that we demand action on tin- part of the
Dominion authorities to slay und
thwart lhe increasing lido of Chinese immigration and lhe increasing evils of Chinese competition.
