own feelings and to injure Mr. Davison— if that were in his power.
I am not anxious to deal with the
distorted report of the Free Press
or its correspondent on this point,
hut in the latter's communication
there was a reference made to the
Sabbath observance by-law—evidently used with a bad intention
and for the purpose of appealing to
the feelings of a certain class to help
the Free Press out, with whom the
editor has nothingin common and is
regarded by the same class as of the
least influence to help anything
pertaining to the moral value of
the Sabbath. 1 am afraid that the

Chinese Restriction.
The meeting called for next Wednesday evening should be a large
and representative one of the people of this district, to the end that
whatever action is taken receive the
endorsement of all classes alike and
by unanimity give force to the desires of the people.   The meetings
held in Vancouver were large and
enthusiastic, as also unanimous in
the means suggested to bring about
the desired relief, and it should not
be said that Naniiimo, which is affected to as great, if not gre iter extent than thc Mainland, lacks enthusiasm or numbers in supporting
the movement so well inaugurated
in Vancouver.   Since the agitation
commenced in British Columbia the
labor organizations and people affected by coolie labor throughout the
Dominion have become aroused to
a sense of their duty and the importance of taking action toward securing  effective protection for Canadian labor; and this province, which
is affected more  than  any  other,
should send up a petition signed by
such numbers that the measure of j
relief prayed for could not reasonably lie denied, in view of the fact
that the Premier has promised to
comply with the wishes of the west-

The best portraits we have yet
seen of the two premiers, past and
present, appears in a recent issue of
the Illustrated American. They are
both clean-cut and correct, and ac
companying them is a pen picture
description, which is also clean-cut
and correct, to wit:
"The late Sir John A. Macdonald
once remarked to a friend: 'I can
trust Laurier without the slightest
fear; he is incapable of breaking his
word even if he wished to do so.' It
is not often that one political opponent will so speak of another, but
the great Conservative leader's tribute is no more than Mr. Laurier
"A shining example of honesty,
virtue and straightforwardness, he is
in every respect fitted to succeed to
the premiership which the electorate of the Dominion of Canada so
enthusiastically bestowed upon him
at the recent general elections.
"For a continuous period of eighteen years he fought the thankless
battle of opposition against a powerful government, struggling manfully in the face of tremendous odds
and ever watchful in the interests
of his country. Most men would
have wearied of this, and retired to
private life filled with bitterness
and disappointment; but Mr. Laurier ever presented a cheerful front,
and by 60 doing kept up the spirits
of his followers.
"As an orator, the new Premier is
without a peer in the Dominion. In
his private personality he is as he
looks, retined,courteous, and always
the gallant gentleman. In the heat
of a debate he has never been known
to forget himself, parrying the
coarsest thrusts with sarcasm well
chosen if severe.
"When it is remembered that the
imously adopted condemning the
present system of Chinese immigration and favoring theincrease of the
impost from *50 to $500, in confor
in this respect the man's worth is
recognized, ln official as well as
private life he is a Canadian in the

Similar action was taken by the

at a meeting held last week, when
the following resolution was passed
without >*. dissenting voice:    "That
or province first, but simply Canada
as a whole. To sum him up briefly,
it can be said that he is a true patriot.
" As Mr. Laurier is the man of
the present, Sir Charles Tupper is
in the opinion of this meeting, it is the man of the pa,t.     Associated
desirable that some action betaken
to bring tbe question of Chinese immigration to the notice of the Federal Government, and that this
meeting instruct the secretary to
write the British Columbia Trade
Councils, assuring them of our
hearty sympathy, andourwilliness
to co-operate with them in their
efforts to rid their Province of such
undesirable citizens."

who, with his wife, has been here

to be the youngest member of the

active politics. But when the dissensions in the Cabinet reached un
acute stage in January last he hied
him to the scene of the trouble, and
while deposing Sir Mackenzie Bowell from the active premiership, endeavored u> unite the antagonistic
elements of the party. A short time
later he was called upon to assume
in name that which for some time
past had been bis in practice, and
from then until June 23 he held tbe
title of Premier. His reign was the
briefest in the history of Canada,
covering a period of but eight weeks.
"The aged baronet—for he is now
five years over the allotted three
score and ten-is still, as he always
has been, a great fighter, and tu accomplish an object will overcome
tremendous obstacles, lt is doubtless owing to his great pluck and
perseverance that he has succeeded
in his political career. As one of
the fathers of confederation and Sir
John A. Macdonald's successor, he
was for many years in the ascendant, and probably did us well in
the recent contest as any of his followers would have done, though his
egotism and Czar-like uutocrucy induced many old-time Conservatives
lo secede from his party.
"Sir Charles is not in any sense
an orator, although he speaks with
force and impresses an audience
with his determination. It is as a
stump-speaker that he is at his besl.
In 1887 he was appointed one of
Her Majesty's plenipotentiaries to
the Fisheries' Conference aft Washington, and it was in recognition of
the services there rendered and his
subsequent success ih carrying the
bill for the ratification of the treaty
through the Canadian House of
Commons that he was created a
The story goes that a deputy returning officer at Winnipeg took to
his booth in his coat pocket 200
ballots marked in advance for the
Conservative candidate, as a guarantee of good faith, an indubitable
proof of industry, and a convincing
evidence of loyalty to the party.
It is announoed that C. P. Huntington, of the Southern Pacific Rail-

His excessive weaknes renders his condition alarming. His eminence is suffering from ailments common to old uge,
and his strength fails him entirely. The
doctors term the malady "decrepitude."
It has been au open secret for some time
that he was suffering from both mental
and physical decay. His helplessness
and infirmities have weighed upon the
venerable prelate and his private physician says the remaining days of his life
are numbered. Last night the cardinal
was a little better, but his pulse is very
feeble nnd   unsettled.

Lord Russell Baid the verdict was

hud the gruvist consequences, including
death to some and injury to others,
while the future consequences of their
crime no one was yet able to forsee.
Continuing, the Lord Chief Justice said
Ihat although they all took part in the
raid the court must distinguish between
them in ibe punishment awarded tor
their guilt. His Lordship then passed
sentence upon the prisoners. Dr. Jameson was sentenced to fifteen months'
Imprisonment without labor. .Major Sir

side of the prisoners. This was die
bitterest moment nf ali for the raiders,
as up to this time thev hud been treated
with the greatist courtesy, and had, in
fact, been mule heroes of to a cerin'r.
extent. But when the elbows of tha
prison wardens touched ihose of tho

the demeanor of the latter. They seem

Hint the strong arm of lnw had knocked all the romance out of the Transvaal

the eyes of the law and in the eyes ot

take aC-lon looking to the depriving the
prisoners of their commissions in the
British army.
Then was ena.'tf 1 the lust chapter in
the trial of Dr. "Jim'' and his associates. The court wns ordered to oe
cleared, the audience, whispering gloom
lv, "How severe," etc., filed slowly into
thc streets, the prisoners were escorted
to the Hollowny prison, and so ended
the trial of the Transvaal raiders.
Strange to add, there wns absolutely no
demonstration in the court room wheu
the prisoners were taken away nor on
the outside of it when they were escorted to the jail. When hut a tew
mon'hs ago Dr. Jameson nnd his troopers arrived in London as the heroes ot

But all this hnd changed. The revelations made nt Johannesburg after the
capture of the freebooters by the Boers
and subsequent publications of the letters and telegrams at Pretoria, soon
lowered Dr. Jameson and his friends in
ihe estimation of the public when it wns
established beyond t-iiy reasonable
doubt that the Jameson expedition wis
badly organized, badly supplied with
provisions and ammunition, badly officered, badly led in every way, and badly

London, July 28—The curious speo-
tacle is afforded here of the Chartered
Company's organs on on" hand exaggerating the severity of the reported repulse of the English by the Matabeies
ill the Matoppe hills, and of the government press on the other hand trying to
minimize the disaster,
The reason is not hard to conjecture.
Cecil Ithoiles finds the stormy rebellion
on the part of the natives carefully fostered by him in order to give an excuse
for his absence from England during
Jameson's trial, cannot be allayed
lit easily as be expected. Certainly he
himself is such a grotesque failure as a
Jlllltary leader that he has already retired to comparative safety,

The sentences imposed upon Dr.
Jameson nnd his companions were very
generally discussed in tlte lobbies of par-
liaitient lust night. Continry to the feeling manifested by the fuir spectators
and the lympnthizing fricuds in the
court rorni to-dny, the sentences wor*

the sentences nre more serious for the
military prisoners than the mere term
fixed for their imprisonment, since it is
expected that tiny will be cashiered.
In commenting upon the sentence
passed upon Dr. Jameson the Graphic
approves the verdict,
Tne Daily Telegraph coniiders that th..
