One of ths characteristic* of Port
Moody least agreeable to the strange.-
and Intending settler—indeed the only
natural characteristic which is likely to
produc. in him anything like a feeling
of discouragement,—is tbe immense
mau of growing timber, and timber
usually of an immense size, with which
the ground is found to be originally
covered. To a man who has lived in
a prairie country, or who is familiar
Only with the more lightly timbered

hear of no movement whatever being
made towards the establishment of a
school. It is now high time that, at
least, the initiatory step* were taken
for the establishment of a Public
School at Port Moody. In order that
the Provincial Administration may
have no excuse for further delay, it
s.ay be well for the inhabitants to ine-
morial-te them upon the matter. At
all events, we do our duty by calling
their attention to it. A lot for aschool-

Still,  it   nvusl be admitted that the
elenriug of.', grubbing, nrjff grtuli
town lots and streets, after the standing  timber ha* already   been slashed
and burnt over, is an expensive  and
troublesome operation.     But, especially in town buildings, there is  another
View of the matter.     In this almost
frostless country, nobody ever thinks of
excavating in order  to lay  deeply the
foundations of a building, or to provide
a frost proof cellar beneath it; so, there
we dispense   with  one   large outlay
found quite  indispensible in all building operations, among all of our fellow
subjects east of thia Province ; and a
very large item of   expense i» thus
saved ;   for these excavations not un-
frequently cost as much as the whole
superstructure raised above them.     It
would be well then for distant strangers to be given to understand that for
this elsewhere formidable outlay, there
is no necessity whatever, in any build-
mg operations here at   Port   Moody.
There is another class of outlays osten
sibly to be increased  in building up
this town, and wliich are already being
incurred, to   some extent,  which we
nevertheless think  might be   largely
ameliorated   if not entirely  avoided.
The private- and enterprising individuals who have undertaken to open up
streets adjacent to their own property,
have, we see, commenced grubbing and
grading such streets, from the  soil it
self.     Provision is  being made   for
plank   sidewalks.     This   cannot   but
prove a very expensive, and—we cannot  but think—a needlessly expensive
process-   Net enly the sidewalks, but
tlie whol_ roadway, should be planked.
If ever there  was a country  in the
world where   planked highways should
be the  rule, Port   Moody is  such  a
pjaee.     The soil itself is not good for
street making. Where it is not clayey,
it is quick-sandy, andit is nearly everywhere springy.    There is scarcely any-
dry gravel at all.    Hence the necessity
for   planked  streets.     Again,  timber
suited to street planking abounds here
—so  much   so,   indeed, that, at the
present time, it is a nuisance.     The
time will soon come, however, when
We shall regret not having such supplies to fall back upon.    As it is, it is
a shame to waste t liis fine timber; and
we should  turn it to a useful account
whenever we can.    Hence, we  should
use up large   quantities of it in planking our streets.    These planked streets
can be mado very much cheaper, very
much   more   expeditiously,  and very
much better, thar. ever any enn be made

of the place. It should be built to accommodate not less than one hundred
pupils; for we feel perfectly certain
that, within a twelve month from now,
the population of Port Moody will comprise more than that number of children "of school age." This is a matter
whicli most deeply concerns the welfare
of the place. Nothing can more deeply concern it. And if the memben of
the Provincial Administration persist
in ignoring our claims in this respect,

(From the M.I itn. Ou.rdlin.l
Although the people of this province,
ttrange to say, lake very little interest,
apparent')', in the question of the Hudson Bay rou c, it is exciting the keenest
interest almos everywhere else.    In the
eastern provinces it is looked upon as
being a serious rival to the Canadian
Pacilic, and recent advices state lhat the
latter company arc endeavoring to pur
chase it.    This is likely enough, but we
do not think ihat in their present finan
cial difficulties, the C. P. R. company
would be in a p sitiou to offer a sum of
money sufficient  to  buy  privileges  of
such immense importance as those held
by the, now amalgamated, Hudson Bay
railway company; nor do wc think that
the latter company would be inclined to
dispose of their charter.   The transcontinental railway companies of the United
States and the steamship owners of New
York are more likely lo suflei  than the
0. P. R. Company.    A very large portion of  heir  trade would  be at once
taken from them;  not only the Japan,
East Indian and China trades, so far as
the European traffic is concerned, but
also, the whole of the Australian trade
would certainly go by way of Hudson's
Bay.   The saving of time and railway
carriage would amount to a veiy considerable profit—the most pot. nt argument in relation to the route for goods
traffic;  then the great saving in time
would undoubtedly take all the passen
gers.    Let the  reader just picture  to
himself, that by way of  Hudson's Bay
he can reach Liverpool from (his city in
from fourteen to eighteen days at the

calculated upon drawing a great deal of
the Canadian traffic to their line, whereas
the whole of the Canadian and a great
deal of American traffic will seek (he
rouie by way of Hudson's Bay. Can
anyone be surprised at (he determined
opposition to (he Hudson's Bay railway,
starting up on every side, and that efforts
are being made to buy up the company,
with a view, no doubt, to deter the construction of the line to a distant period
in the finite . It will be observed that
the C. P. R company are powerless to
stay its construction, since it in no wa>
infiinges upon their charter, being to
the north of the C. P. R. line. Of
course, the C. P. R. would profit immensely by the enormous traffic between
Port Moody and Winnipeg, and that
would in a great measure recompense
| theni foi the loss of traffic via Montreal,
because a great deal of the freight and
passengers going by Hudson's Bay
would otherwise have gone by way of
the Northern or Central Pacific railways

We hear, of late, of a good deal of
"kplurging" in the^Locoii Legislature,
about education and Public Common
Schools. We do not, however, see or
hear, there or elsewhere, any indication
ef the establishing of a Public School
at Port Moody. It is high time that
tome such indication was discemable.
There is now, in this town, a little private school which is doing good work,
and is a great accommodation to those
heads of families who avail themselves
of ite facilities. We would not willingly ue it olosed ; and there is no reason
why it should be closed through the establishment of. a Free Public School.
Nobody pretends to assume that it ful-

the route via Hudson's Bay would be a

and passengers from Japan, East Indies
and Australia, would absolutely become
tributary to Port Moody, by which place
the whole traffic for Europe would pass.

not permit of our republishing the entire address, but we gave what we supposed to X' the material points in
relation to this province and Port
Moody in particular. It was there
shown that the saving to travellers
—and, of course, to freighters,—
between Port Moody and Liverpool,
comp.red with existing routes, would be
eleven hundred and seventeen miles—a
considerable journey in itself: the greater portion of hat distance being carriage
by rail, and, of course, the most expensive of all. For the grain trade of the

haa really mads no inconsiderable progress

two weighty facts, first, tbat King Alfonso
eould be brought to assent to the programme
of constitutional reform outlined in the recent speech from the throne, and secondly,
tbat the adherents of Canovas in tbe Cortes
voted with the supporters of the Posada-
Hen-era Ministry on the division which resulted, in the defeat of the latter, and which
turned upon tbe question of tho extension

intended tq niauitaiti his former attitude of
inflexible opposition to all innovation looking toward a re-eetatltshmont of the Constitution of 1859, would have been to advise

follow, Senor Canovas will have no difficulty
in obtaining a majority, for the restricted
constituency created by the Constitution of
1870 has never proved intractable to Ministerial pressure.
There was really little ground for Senor
Sagasta's pretensions to a resumption of
power beyond the fact that his supporters
are decidedly preponderant in the now suspended Cortes, which was elected in August,
18S1, and which, if it ever reflected the prevailing current of influence and opinion, has
apparently ceased to do so. He has ratber

there was any pass through them. I arrived
at the mouth of the Kagle River, and on the
top uf a tree near by 1 saw a large nest full
nf eagles, and tbe two old birds un a branch
of the same tree. 1 had nothing but a small
revolver in the shape of fire-arms ; and this
I discharged eight or ten times at the nest,
but could not knock it down. The two old
birds, after circling around the nest, flew up
the valley ; and it struck me then that if I
followed them I might Hnd the much* wished-
for pass. I explored the valley some two or
three weeks nfterwards, aud having been
successful in finding a good pass, I thought
the most appropriate name I could give it
was the ' Eagle Pass. ' " — Saskatchewan

Qutte independent of the meeting mentioned above, but iu consonance with its

Utilizinothe Hailkoad.—The Westminster people seem about to experience a new
interest iu the opening of a road that really
will be a road, from their city to Port Moody. Duriug the latter pai t of last week, the
Fraser already bore such a quantity of lloat-
ing ice, that it was dangerous and ditlicult,
if nit quite impossible, for a boat to make
the pas«ige to any point above that eity.
When this has boen the case in fanner winters, the blocking of tliu Frasur has necessitated a long, tedious, and fatiguing journey
by land, for the transference of moils and
passengers from Westminster to points in-
lsnd. Fortunately, this is no longer DOOM'
sary. The mails can now be brought over to
Port Moody, and curried hence Vy rail tothe
crossing of the Fraser, 1.0 miles up. lt is
possible that this route will so hvre -icon
made available befurc we next go to press.
Passengers to and from tho intorior can
avail themselves ofthe same means of transit.

On Tuesday last, an accident occurred, on
a down train, of serious consequenoe to conductor Wright, who was in chargo. When
Just below the Mission, and wbcu he, Mr.
Wright, was on tho ploagfa—as seems to be
necessary in the present condition of tho
road—some obstmctiou was met with which
naturally caused a jerk of the rear end of tho
plough. In consequence, Wright was either
thrown off, or attempted to jump off, the
train. At all events, he found himself off
ol it, with what was eventually fouud to be
a bad dislocation of the right ankle, a fracture of one of tho bones of the same, leg, and
other injuries to that limb. The sufferer was
brought down by special train to Port Moody, and mode as comfortable- aa oould be, in
the railway office, and Dr. Trew was sent
for. The Doctor did not arrive until _n ear-
. ly hour on Wednesday morning. Ia the
mean time, at the patient's request, Dr. Heslop had set the badly shattered limb.
On the evening of Saturday las* a meeting
of "working men" was held, according to
notice, at the Bhop of Ma-ssrs. Barry and
Bowlin, to consider the question of the employment of Chinese laborer'. About thirty
men assembled on the occasion, and an earnest interest uut manifested by the meeting
upon the ____* ssssier cc .lslderation. The
main o-j-rotin tie*' was to devise means for
securing the employment of White Men, in
the prevalent industrial pursuits of tho town,
Instead of that of Chinamen. The matter
was discussed at length. It was eventually
resolved to appoint a Committee of five to
consult with white business nen and employees, with a view to securing the employment of White Men in preference to China-
nfex whenever possible, such committee to

Honest John brought ir. his pttHhrtl from
the Women's Christian Tcliqieranee Cnion,
in wliich thu petitioners animadverted on
thu resolution r, s\..:<■ting the inapplicability
of the new Licensing Aet as applied to this
Province. The House evidently objected to
the petition as presented, and Honest John
received some well-merited snubs, which fell
upon hiui like water ou a duck's tuck ; tbe
,U_.-.u was adjourned. Mr. Beaven presented a minority icport on the subject of an
over-draft by the present Government, at thu
Bunk. As might luve boen expected the
whole Coveniment tribe assailed liim and he
was tela to accept the Speaker's ruling that
the debate was out of order. Mr. Helgesen
voted that the Dominion (.ovcruiuciit lie
urged to assist in discovering fisheries or
oyster beds on our coasts. Ho is, unfortunately for his motion, on the Opposition
side, hence he was compelled to withdraw
his motion. But it elicited the true inwardness of our conciliation (Iovernment. Mr.
Smithe thought the Dominion Government
was mean enough to take advantage of Mr.
Helgesen'a motion to give Hi only e smaller
share of the Halifax reward than Mr. Smithe
thought we were entitled rto. Verily Mr.
Smithe has a very low opinion of the Dominion Cnvcrotnent; perhaps because he is a
(iritliko Honest John. The Chinese Regulation Bill was moved a stage, the clause
forcing the Celestials to work ut fires was
struck out. The t 'oinmittee rose anil reported progress. The House adjourned till
Wont-DAT, Jan. 30th.
Mr. Orr moved the second reading of the
New Westminster City Land Bill; after
some-isc-ssion the Bill was laid over. The
Port M»o_!y Telephone Bill was read a second time and passed through Committee
without amendments. During the remarks
on the Bill Mr. Orr had the impertinence to
say that Port Moody was nuly a town on
paper, in direct contradiction to his very mt
iu asking for the second reading of the Bill.
Thisgsve Honest John an opportunity which
he eagerly a-ireed, to try and exonerate Irirn-
self for refusing to incorporate the
tuwii of Port Moody. If Mr. Orr
is wise he will keep his impertinences
to himself. Tho evidence Bill was read a
second time and paHscd through Committee
with amendments. Mr. T. Davis withdrew
his resol'itiou nueiit the Liquor Law ; everybody had their notion U trr the propria.; of
this or that clause, so that, had be persevered,
it would have coiue out un abortion, In a
very irregular and useless debute on the
claims of Mr. J. Orr, u great deal of unnecessary personalities were indulged in re-pict-
ing Mr. Beuven, by Mr. Smithe. The last-
named gentleman is not gaining in popularity
when he indulges so lnrcly in personal attacks to gratify his spite. The House then
adjourned till Tliui'sdiiy.
Tiiirsiiav, Jan. 31st.
The Cariboo Road Tolls Bill came up for
second roadiag aod evoked a warm debate
on an amendment of the Provincial Secretary
exempting material and supplies for the railway, from tolls. After a great dual of time
had been expended upon it, the Bill paeeed
through Committee with amendments. The
Law of Evidence Bill was read u third time
uml passed. Th- Chinese Regulation Bill
came up in Committee and after some clauses
had been passed, the Committee rose and reported progress. Tne Chinese immigration
Bill, after some ridiculous propositions.evidently arising from a feeling that tlur 'Jill is
only a farce, passed through Committee with
iiuendineiits. The Chinese lleguliitiou Bill
followed ti.e same course The Mineral Act
was read a third time and pasted, llie Administration of Justice Bill was Dead a third
time nnd passed. The Prevention of Fires
Bill   wus   real a   second time   an-    pasted
through Committee with amendments. The
N. W. li. P. M. Telephone Bill was need a
third time nnd passed. The Crown Land.
Timber Bill passed a second reading. The
Committee considered a few clauses and then
reported progress. The House then adjourned
till Mori.lay.
Monday, February 4th.
The Bill for tlie prevention of th-os was
read a third time avd passed. The Bill for
the consolidation of tho Lnnd Laws caused a
great deal of debate, particularly ani relation
to pni.ioiiil lands, wliich the Bill proposed
to sell at lifty cent* per acre, llie feeling
of the House wua decidedly averse to selling
pastoral lauds at fifty cents an acre, bo the
Oovernment sbirffled over tho difficulty, for
the time, by laying the clause over.    When
thfl oli.ul-  U-illtf   a royalty on   c-onl came up
for discussion, Mr. Dunsmuir, of course, objected to it, but nioBt of the members appeared to bo in favor of it, some of them
sugg^ting that it be applied to txlitlng
coal mines. This, however, Mr. Dunsmuir
appeared to think could not be done, and Mr.
Smithe agreed with him. The Oovernment
woultl never think of imposing a tax upon
such a good friend, so thut, after some discussion, the clause was left in statu quo by
tho Committee rising and reporting progress.
Probably when the Bill is brought up in
Committee next time somo Of the members
may lie mure tractable; time works wonders.
The House adjourned till Tuesday.

A fow weeks ago spver.* girls, employed at
at a sui^ar factory in lialta, near Odessa, in
RusBia, left that town in the evening to re-
tin _* to their native village at some distance.
The uirls belated on the way, resolved to pass
the night in the fields and proceed at day bivak.
They had located themselves near a haystack
in a field adjoining the highway, and, having
some slight fears of robbery, placed their
united week's earnings in the bands "f one
of their number for greater safety. Tbo unfortunate Kills were all fast asleep, when
tbey were tracked by a number of youn r
men. Tho girl who had secreted the money
in her dress had taken the precaution to
cover herself with bay. Tha miscreants,
finding no money on the persons of the other
six girls, murdered them in cold blood. They
then fired the stack, and in the conflagration
and smoke the surviving and terrified girl
effected her escape and reached the village
in safety. An alarm was given, and the
murderous hand were all arrested. The survivor had recognized the murderers,  who
came before the habitues of Chri°tifv'«   sue-   ▼«* &lt -smployart  in tbo ssme factory ai
