The Mayor of Nanaimo, unlike

does not either frown upon or dodge

As the settlement and development of the West is a pail of the

not have to compete with the Chinese in this con,dry.

The citizens of San Francisco met
in mass-meeting recently and duly
roasted the "solid seven" of the
Supervisors for reducing the assessments of the corporations. Yet
after all thc rousting is done, the
fact remains that so long as the
public utilities 6treet*cars, 'light,
water, etc.- -are privately owned,
the corporations will lie able to debauch the municipal authorities.
Thecity must either own the public works ur be owned by them.
Seamen's Journal.
President Bossevelt of the Xew
York Police Board recently addressed several recruits in the follow ing
language: "Sooner or later in ihis
city we will have a time of
great t-ivii commotions, riol und
disorder,   Then your duty will  he
that of a soldier." The least hesitation will be tolerated no more than
cowardice in the field.     If a   police
captain .-an,,,it handle his men so
as to en,itrol mobs and squelch disorder no other quality of bis will
count."
As a result of the refreshing
promptitude of the present administration, as contrasted with the
dilatoriness and neglecl of the past,
the buoys at tbe mouth ofthe Fraser
river, whioh had been displaced by
the recent freshets, have been replaced, the Steamer Capilano having
been engaged for llie purpose on account of disablement ef the snagboat
Samson. To Mr. Atilay Morrison,
the newly-elected member, no less
credit is due for promptly bringing
the matter to the attention of the
Government,
While wo have no desire toantici-1
pate the result of Ibe various  protests  filed  against  tbe   successful
candidates in this province, il may
he staled that the eliirge of bribery
and corruption on the part of the
Liberals of this cily onuses general I
surprise.    As lo   Mr.   Maxwell,   of
Burrard, it is evidence of ibe desperate straits of lhe opposition when
they charge thut tbe voles cast  for
him were east foreman who does nol
exist - -simply because, as we understand it, bis inline is one adopted .in
infancy for reasons thnt are none of

anyway?   A Maxwell by any other
name would be as odious to bis dis*:
gruntled opponents. |
In a speech al St. John's (Quebec)
nu .Inly 25th, in response lo a flattering address, ami in lhe interest
of Mr. Tarte, Premier Laurier outlined the policy of the Liberal administration. This, of course, was
on the lines of the principles long
advocated by lhe party ami upon
the strength of which it was returned to power. Liesaid llie parly
had received the mission lo change
ihe tariff to better meet the needs
of the country, bul that they would
proceed with caution in order not
to injure lhe established interests of
the country. There would he a
short session commencing Aug. P.llli
tu vote lhe budget, bul the changes
iu llie tariff would be deferred until
next session, which will lie held in
January or February next. .Meantime they would communicate with
workmen, farmers, manufacturers
and others, to tbe end thai a tariff
may be elaborated of a nature calculated to lighten the burden of taxation. Relief for the fanners would
he sought through a reduction in
the price of articles necessary for
their use and consumption and by
increasing the sale of their products
by establishing rapid transit and
facilitating communication with
European markets. From a commercial standpoint be believed our
relations with England might be
improved,and though! il possible to
obtain from England a preferential
treaty which would be exclusive for
nur products. They would endeavor to establish more friendly relations witli the United States anil
revive the treaty of reciprocity oi
1853-56—" the golden age for the
provinces of Ontario and Quebec."
Witli regard to taxation, he said
Unit, with a population of not more
than live millions, it cost lhe people
$25,000 per day to pay the interest
uu the national debt -one-quarter
id" tbe total revenue of the country;
and in order to increase the population and thus decrease the taxation, they proposed to adopt ways
and means fur tlte settlement aud
development of the northwest. in
reference to the Manitoba Seltool
Question lie said:
'■ ll is not by Using violence that
we will manage ibis affair. I have
declared in the House, in the Province nf Ontario,and in the Province
of Quebec, thai the only manner of
dealing wilh this is by conciliation,
and I believe that future events will
show thai 1 was right. 1 am now
in the presence of tbe responsibility
of my word which l gave tn the
electorate on June 23, and lhe time
lots come lo keep my word. 1 accept the responsibility, and 1 hope
thai before six month*! 1 will have
the pleasure of saying to the people*.
' 1 'have kept Ihe word whicli I gave
yuu. Here is a settlement of thut
question.'"    (Long applause.)
Refuting the charges oi French
domination, the Premier concluded
bis speech as follows:
" During the last battle everybody
ilid his duly, not only in this county
■ :' Sl Johns-] berville, In,! the n hole
Province of Quebec, (if sixty-live
counties you have given me forty-
nine. Aud immediately the Tory
papers of Ontario began to cry oul:
'French domination.' The formation of my Cabinet has been au
eloquenl answer.
"'the Province of Quebec is behind
me, but l know hor well. W'hal she
wants is thai no oneshall dominate
her and she wilt not domin tic any
one, even though she hold the reins
of power. I am speaking in the
name of lhe Province nf Quebec, and
1 kuow that .-he will never abuse
her position ur give authority to
persecute anyone, but that she will
always render justice to everybody
without distinction of race or creed."
As Mr. Laiiriei' bus staled thai
noil.ing but ihe budget will he considered at the session called fur the
19th Inst., there seems little prospect
of securing any unlit hit,esc legislation until tlm meeting nf Parliament in January ur February next.
Meantime, in anticipation of the
prospective legislation, the Asiatics may be expccled lo invade tbe
country iu incensed numbers, as
they will doubtless be kepi posted
mi the situation by the Wellington
Enterprise and interested parties
whose sinister motives blind them
in any consideration for tbe public
welfare.    Unless extra efforts tire
made lo secure legish.lion at Ibe
earlier se sion, matters are liable lo
get milch worse before they get any
heller.
