also expressed his acknowledgments

six weeks.    Until   such lime, however, as  L dy   Tupper   returns  to
Ottawa he will make his home with !

will retain his  residence here until
the close of lhe coming session.
Two thousand people welcomed
Wilfrid Laurier when he arrived
here at 8:M") to-night in response lo
His Excellency's summons. Beyond three hearty cheers when the
Premier-designate alighted there
was no demonstration. Accompanied by Mr. Belcourt, one of the new
members-elect for Ottawa, Mr. Lau-

sell house, where a large crowd was
awaiting him. After registering he
shook hands.witli a few acquaintances and then retired to his room.
Presently an orderly from Government House made his  appearance

godsend for the Cobden Club, whioh
celebrated the 50th anniversary of
lhe repeal of theoorn laws by a dinner at the Ship lloiei, Greenwich.
Il gave chairman Leonard Courtney
a source of consul a lion during a long
spcecli in which Mr. Chamberlain's
zollvereiu scheme was assailed as
an invention of that enemy of Cob-

described as a false guide who had
inspired the Ottawa conference and
had attempted to show the way to linn opened the

free trade, but now that the election
had been held it was clear that Canada was not at his hack. Mr.Court-
noy regarded the election as an uprising in favor of free trade and a

Bright Future.
Ottawa, July 7—Sir Charles Tupper
resigns to-night. The cabinet met at
3 o'clock anil after the meeting will go
to KiJoiiu Hull to tender their resignations.
Sir Frank Smith arrived in the city
this morning to help the government to
close up sonic political mutters whicli
are under consideration. If this cau he
done to-dny there is no doubt but thnt
Tapper will rcBtgn this evening, lt is
doubtful if he will manage to get anything through before tomorrow. One
uf the ministers of the Crown said that
it might be Thursday before the premier
woutl he able to resign.
Hon. l'eter White was here yesterday.
He says a number of ballots were
thrown out in the North Iteiifrew recount because thoy were not marked in
the disc, but these would not huve affected the general result.
Ottawa, July 8.—VV. W. B. Mclnnes,
M.I'., and Mrs. Mclnnes, have arrived
here for the session, nnd are staying ai
the Russell.
Tupper drove to Ridenu Hall at.lOtHU
a.m. to-day nnd is now closeted with
Lord Aberdeen. The reason why Sir
Charles did not resign hist night is duo
to Lord Aberdeen refusing to sign cer-
jtnln appointments which tho government have put through council. These
appointments are said to embrace men
who have been members of parliament,
us well ns men who have noted as lieol-
,ers for the Col servntive party. If T'up-
,jtcr gels these nnpolntments put tlirougn
he will resign nl once, and if not, it is
■Ktitl that lie will hang on until parliament meets.
Sir Frank Smith, who Is here, and
other political friends of the premier,
are asking him to hold on until driven
out by nn adverse vole, but it is scarcely possible llint he will do so. lt looks
■IS if he would resign to-day. No nint-
tt r what is the result of the governor-
general's notion regarding the appointments, the better element of ihe Censor
v.'itive party would prefer thnt the gov-
ieraor-genernl would not sign the appointments, whicli nre in ninny ways highly

grent deal of uncertainty  to-doy  ns to
the  event,   the     ministers     themselves
standing    around waiting for Tapper's

Excellency's refusal to sanction orders-

Tapper's insistence thnt they should h°

Petition and Resolutions to Be Presented at a Public Meeting
in This City.
Editob Mail: I think that some
lil tie explanation on this movement may be necessary ut the present
time in order to make the roud clear
as possible for what may come after-
wards. In connection with the
mass meeting at Vancouver (whicli
meeting was set on foot by the people
of that city), 1 may say that there
were three or four resolutions drafted
and will be inserted in a petition
for circulation through the whole
of the province. At the meeting in
Vancouver a large Provincial Executive Committee was elected, of men
that aro konwn to be real anti-
Chinese believers, and after this
petition and resolutions come to
hand il is our intention to have a
public meetingin Nanalmoat which
to discuss them. There is every
disposition on thc part of the miners
of Nanaimo to take up the question
and bring it to a successful issue.
Sufficient has been said publicly to
arouse us, but because it has been
generally left to the miners, and also
that the Board of Trade have not
shown any disposition to do anything with it, 1 thought a good word
at this time after Vancouver has
taken the matter up would prepare
the public for the meeting to be held
shortly. I suppose there is room
on this question, as with the most
of questions, for two opinions; but
whatever opinion anyone may have
contrary with the spirit of this
movement ought to be represented
at this public meeting, so that every
point of tho question may be duly
considered and carefully presented.
It is not too much to sny that it is
KVERYBODY's question, as we have
been plainly told that, unless the
competitors that are the keenest
against the industry on which this
town owes its present existence, and
so far as we can see its future prosperity, are compelled lo run their
business on fairlines, this company
here must adopt their methods, and
every man and woman in Nanaimo
ought to know what this would
moan to them. Our Dominion member, with the other three members
of the province, arc pledged to look
after this matter, and the Premier
of the new Government has said
that the wishes of this province on
this matter shall be attended to.
Here is a chance for this long-
vexed question to be settled.
A resolution was proposed on the
question in the Dominion House inl
the session of 1885, and was with-,
drawn on the promise made by the
then Premier that a commission
should be issued to inquire into and
report upon the subject of Chinese
immigration. The principal plea
for the Chinamen, as advocated by
those who answered the questions
issued by that commission, was
their necessity for opening up the
country, and wo may be sure that
those same parties, who are deriving
a direct benefit from them, will
make the same claim to-day ; but
surely there is a sufficiently large
number who are affected in the opposite direction l"ry their existence
in the province to swell a petition
that will compel the attention of
the gentlemen at Ottawa on the
question. Many attempts have been
niade to remedy this evil, and even
now it must not be thought there
is any royal road to its set!lenient;
but if a very large majority of lhe
people of this province sign a petition, it will surely receive atiention.
The voice of the people to a government is everything, ami if after we
do all we can in the circulation of
tiiis petition to cuu*e the people to
speak and the voice is not loud
enough, we will then know the real
thought of the province on the question and make up our minds which
way we propose lo compete with
this unnatural competitor, and also
who ara the friends and enemies of
the cause. RaI.PII Smith.
