from "Sli'Miilion, illibetal from ignorance, tnd prejudice.! from conceit.
.Egotism and the love of display induced bim to keep an excellent table;
convenience, and a love of good things
of thi. life, ensured him plentv of guests
He liked to have el.ver men, or what
he considered such, at his table, because it was a great thing to talk about;
but he never could endure' whit he
called "sharp fellows." Probably he
cheiished this feeling out of compliment
to bis two sons, who gave their respected patent no uneasiness in thai
particular. The familv were am> itious
of form ng acquaintances and connections in some sphere of society superior
to that in which ihey themselves
moved; and one of the necessary c n-
•equencei of tbis desire, added to their
utter ignorince of the world beyond
their own smaT circle, was, that anv
one wbo could lay claim to an acquain
tanon r. ith people of lank and title, had
a inre passport to the table at Oak

of her marrying a title, she eould oon
soieutiously encm rage the visits nf her
present associates; and dreamed, nil
dgbt, of disguised noblemen, large
routs, ostrich-plumes, bridal favors, and
Horatio Sparkins.
Various surmises were hazarded on
the Sunday morning, as to tlie mode
of conveyance which the anxiously ex-
peoted Horation would adopt. Did be

The people at Victoria continue to
hold meetings and denounce the system
of Chinese cheap labor; but every
knave sees tbat the multitude cannot
thiuk, and ure incompetent to act in
proper time and plao; therefore the
meetings and the speeches are mere
moonshine. The Chinese question

votes should use them to punish political thieves. Every member of the

he has a powerful force well supplied

This is satisfactory: "Three hundred men from liattleford attacked
Foundinakers band of 600 on their
reservation last Sunday. The light

The Indians lost 50 men; but the
despatch maker forgets to say who won

In London, on Monday last, it was
said in well-informed circles: "Lord
Duflbrin has resigned the Viceroyalty
of India." With wonderful tact be
secured the native princes, the nobles
and the armies of India to aid England
in a war witb the invading Kussian;
and thou he discovered that Gladstone
was using all his influence to secure
"peace at any price." The Earl is an
** Irishman; lie cannot submit) to the
impudence of a bully, and he has no
doubt resigned the office of Viceroy
He is the boy for Oalway, and is fit to
be Lord Lieutenant of Ireland. The
resignation of one position is a recommendation for the other,
The London Times in a leader says:
"A new danger threatens India with
all the horrors from whieh we have
saved her; it threatens her princes
with the loss of the independence we
we have been careful to secure, and our
desire to serve ought to call forth a
loyal readiness to join in dr fending
the country against a common foe.
The least of Lord Dutlerin's Rervioes
will not be the utilization for thr' ds

It appears from the evidence presented to Russia that the loyalty of tlie
Indian princes alarmed her and compelled her to delay the march of her
A correspondent of the Daily News,
writing from Bengal, says: "Russia is
not ready for war on a great scale in
Afghanistan. Our preparations are far
ahead of hers; she knows it, and her
r-cent rapid advances have been mere
experiments to test the temper of the
English Government. She wished to
see how far she could go: but the military action of the Indian authorities,
directed' by rapidity and vigor, opened
her eyes, and' she came to a dead halt.
To make peace-with Russia now would
be a mistake: Long before she could
strengthen her Transcaspian army
sufficient to resist us, we should have
dislodged her from Pulikatun and Air,
Hobat, and by the time her army was
ready for war she would have to begin
again from. Merv; in her front a fully
equipped English and Afghan army,
and in her rear her own half-tamed
Turcoman subjects in a blaze of insurrection."
Every one believes that peace is
certain, and clear-headed men can see
it is more dangerous than war.
The Conservatives in Loudon say
"the whole affair with Russia is set
tied.' The arbitrator will award several
millions to the Afghans, and Gladstone
will lend the money to Russia. The
fact is, he will pay an immense sum to
secure peace at any price. Russia will
take the hint, and in a little while the
Indians will believe that the Britisher
is seaward. And they have no respect
at sll for a man of that stamp.

This sacred privilege or liberty to
vote for a representative in Parliament,
is apparently completely misunderstood
in this Province. It seems to be looked
upon as something to barter to the
highest bidder. If a man is called
upon to vote for a member of the local
House he does not consider, first,
whether the candidate be a man fitted
by education and antecedents for the
honorable position of Member of Par
liament, to whom he can confide the
Important trust with Hufoty; second, if
the candidate's principles, or mode of
regarding the politics of the day,
coincide with his own. His mind is
occupied with the consideration as to
whether the Candidate, if elected, will
help to procure for himself or some
relative, a place in (loverninent pay: a
contract or a privilege to be obtained
from the. Govern mi'iit; a wagon road
to his own door, irrespective of many
like himself who have greater claims;
a J. P.-ship .vhich, notwithstanding his
perfect unfitness, he conceived himself
entitled to, because he has supported
by his vote some successful candidate.
The candidate's qualiiications are thus
rendered down to tlie possession of a
certain fluency of speech not necessarily of an instructive character, but,
always, the power to talk, which at
once clothes him with the repute of
being a smart man. In some, rate instances even this great requisite is not
insisted upon; if he can promise well
and is even passably liberal with his
money, be is accepred with acclamation.
It is not surprising, then, that men
finding the road to Parliament so easy,
and the pay, extracted from the pockets
of the tax-payers, very liberal, he pre
fers a seat in Parliament and a visit to
the capital for three or four months, to
his home occupation, which is neither
so agreeable or so well paid. . As to his
hustings, promises, or to the particular
interests of his constituents generally,
these are matters on a par with the
parson's sermons — very good, no doubt,
for people to attend to who have noth
ing else to think aliout; but when be
goes to the capital he is otherwise engaged and— forgets all about them. He
| may suggest the necessity for a road
when the estimates come up, and more,
; secure some little lierth under Govern
men' f.ir a relative or a neighbor, but
tiiat is the ext' nt of Lis representation; the balance depends on the government in power, and his usefulness is
more apparent to a seductive minister
than to anybody else. Can we wonder
at the corruption of governments*
The means oi ruling the country is so
easy and tin* facilities for a big job to
favorable, that a minister must be an
honest and an honorable man to resist
the temptation. When are look at our
own (ioveriuiieiit under such circumstances, who can wonder at the Koote
nay bill, the Settlement bill, or the
give-away at Coal Harbor? But there
are many more temptations for ministers than such measures as those above-
named. The pleasure Of living at the
capital is much greater than elsewhere.
To make oneself agreeable tu the popple
at the capital is always the great aim
of a minister. In this way the spread
of public institutions throughout the
land is discouraged; everything is concentrated at the capital, and the tax-
paying fanner or miner helps to nnike
the capital beautiful with with pleasant
drivcB in every direction, and splendid
with public buildings. Probably, much
of the latter would not be grudged, if
the capital did not monopolise the
courts nnd institutions which are public
conveniences and involve the loss of
time and money to reach, from the
interior Thin, of course, is a real
grievance, and will do much to bring
about the removal of the capital to a
more central position in the country.
So strong is this feeling, thnt a Victoria paper recently objected to a member because be owned land on the
mainland and some paper in that part
nf the Provinoe advocated the removal
of tlie capital to the mainland. The
candidate in question did not speak
German, but he must be a German
nyhow, because his brother played
the German flute. Centralization is
always questionable as a national ben
elit; but when the people in their
eagerness to retain the capital at any
given point, commit a fraud on the
rest of tho Province by taking more
Limn their fair share of representation,
people are apt to think that the exist
ing position of the se.it nf government is
in the wrong place. By the list of
voters of Victoria we find there are
about tlur cell hundred names on the
list; hut we were permitted to look at
tlie actual list, minus the persons who
were dead or had left the city, and the
result was seven hundred The defenders of such a fraud will no doubt
point to such places us Kootenay to
show that, a greater discrepancy between the representation and the number of voters exists elsewhere. But,
would the existence of the Kootenay
constituency be permitted for a moment if iis representatives weie not
generally favorable to tbe retention ofthe capital where it now is? The existence of constituencies like New
Westminster, which i.s notoriously unrepresented, is completely ignored, or,
if an additional member is grudgingly
uceorded, a like concession is made to
some minis erial pocket borough on tbo
Isluud.    This must, all be chanced.
The shocking revelations connected
with the present corrupt local Government must have convinced even their
former supporters Unit nothing but
their ejection at the conclusion of their
allotted period of power, can satisfy
the country. Like u horrible pall, ihey
have spread their baneful influence
over every industry and enterprise;
and the prospects which were bright
when they commenced their shameful
career, are now dismal beyond anything we have ever experienced in
British Columbia, pointing to bankruptcy and permanent disaster in every
direction. Tbey treated the Province
to endless denunciations of the pre
ceding Government at the beginning of
their occupation of office, which should
have acted as a warning to the public;
but, bad any doubt existed in the
minds of the people, they should have
clearly understood the men to whom
they-had entrusted their public affairs
from two of the earliest acts of the
administration—the Kootenay bill nnd
the attempt to cover up the Port
Simpson; grab. The subsequent acts—
the Settlement bill, the Eagle Pass
wagon road bill, the extension of the
mill lease, the nefarious gift of land
for tbe Coal Harbor speculation, the
attempt to oust the settlers from the'
[and on which their own agent had
placed them at Coal Harbor, with the
ten thousand otlier revolting acts of
their administration, forms a catalogue
of iniquities unparalleled bv any gov
eminent in the world.-   Thoir by play
was composed of ridiculous attempts
at tinkering passable laws, which they
rendered unworkable or unconstitutional. The most imposing of these,abortions was the pretended consolidation
of the hind laws, which was undertaken
with two o ij -else first, to enable them
to i.il.e it: niuie re..-nue by increasing
the price of lund, and, second, to per
init of the insertion of certain clauses
which, they suppose, enabled tliem to
give away the public domain as they
thought proper and to empower them
ion new the mill lease; all this beini:
introductory to the Coal Harbor rob
bery. We have often expressed ourselves iu reference to the capacity and
fitness of these men for legislative
duties;   we   surely   need  not   pit'rule
our previously enunciated opinion, that
they nn- a mockery, n delusion and a
snare. They have nevet, iu any one
case, shown administrative capacity;
but, on the contrary, their record bus
been a continuation of absurdly imbe-
ile treatment of the Domiuion Gov
eminent, in which childi-h spite has
been the main feature; because the
Federal authorities hare used them
whenever it su!:ed their purpose and
then treated their appeuls for any favor
with sovereign contempt. Thus, by
the contemptible action of these so
culled ministers, wo have not only mide
ourselves despised at Ottawa, but we
have allowed ourselves to be deprived
of the only resource we had, when all
other sources fail us—our lands. It
will be found when the present occupants rd office retire,  that our whole
financial system hns been so strained
and doctored that nothing short of
heavy taxation will enable us to exist.
t will be found that every dollar we
'.•oiild beg or borrow from the Federal
Government has been utilized to make
a favorable showing by the late Finance
Minister, nnd he will do his best when
the time conies for investigation, that
he has managed to shoulder all the
onus on the present Finance Minister.
He may impose Upon some ignorant
people, but every Intelligent man will
clearly understand the case. It is na'd
iu relation to the voting for Mr Duck,
that his election was due entirely to
the support of n certain religious body
and the indefatigable exertions of a
certain syndicate, Be that ns it may,
had Mr. Duck squarely appealed to the
people, he would not have received the
half of tbe votes which were polled iu
his favor, not so much from his own
unpopularity as from the hatred which
th" present Government has drawn
upon itself, by its exhibition of ignor-
nice and empty eoneeit. The number
:if rotes received by Mr. Duck, over
hia rival-seven - was the most striking
evidence of tlur intense detestation
iu whioh the Government is held, even
at Una capital, which owes so much to
their exertion* in its behalf. At the
present time, while honest John and
his colleagues are in office, the people
appear to regard them as something
-cored; but whenever tliey hand over
the seals and the full extent of theii
delinquency is exposed, it will he better
for them to be out of the reach of sn
enraged people. Men will begin to ask
themselves why they ever allowed them
to remain in power, after tlie first scs
■: .in. nnd their supporters in the llu'is.
will slink into obscurity, whenoe they
were i,nly drawn to pass the Kooienay
bill, the Settlement bill, and the Coul

on every honest citizen to use his utmost exertions to elect luiiioriible men
for the in xi Parliament.    , his Prov

the quill has been off for severalinouths enjoying the dolicious sweets of travel and the
h.ineymoon. He is credited also with doing
a "lcetle" buttonholing at Ottawa in the interest of his paper, a young and rising journal. A few mornings since he was observed
at his office dour smiling and bowing very
blandly to passers-by. His thumbs were
stuck in his vest and his fingers were busily
beating time as he hummed, "May the deil
come tiil'llin' thro' this town if a' goes right
wi' Coal Harbor." A flspaing article appeared in that att.moon's paper, one which
(iu his mind's eye) forever fettled the terminal city at Coal Harbor. The hoary headed
old chieftnin, who, during a quarter of a
century, with the scratch of his pen, his

In other wurds, dynastic rivalries, which tre

charged witn attempting to kill and murder
one John Wiggins.    Tbe prisoner put in  a
{I'M of "Not 'iui Ity," and tbe f'dltiwing petit
nryinen were sworn:—'8. *Wode, foremen;
i. J. T. Hall, Alliert Hawkins, WiUon
Tone, Hector Toop, Kicbard London, Wm.
Hall, J. Johnston, Jas. Gray, I, J. Martin,
Herbert Lake, John Blair.
Mr. MeCull represented tbe Crown. The
prisoner was undefended.
John iinnkin, swurn—Is a saloon-keeper;
bas known the prisoner for a year. On thu
28th of March laHt, prisoner aaked witness
witneaa where be cnubl find Wiggins, and
said, "1 am going to kill Bute and Wiggins
too, Wiggins will be a dead man before
night.'' The prisoner at that time had in
his hand a bull dog revolver. Witness cannot
say whether it was loaded or not. This occurred at 12 o'ch-ck. Tbe prisoner then went
down Front street to Uiebet's hotel, (Crott*
examined by the prisoner)—Witness did net
invite the prisoner to take a drink. Doos
uot i■■■member How much money was given
by tin* i-i'..-u'T l'i liim for safe-keeping a
year ago.
Henry Cotton, sworn—Lives at Diebid's
restaurant. On tbe 28tb of March lust,
Wiggins nl up from tbe table, and at the
door Patterson stood iu the way and ■■■■i'l to
Wiggins, "Don't come any nearer." 'Wiggins got on one side of him and threw bim.'ii
tbe floor, and iu a second the constable took
a pistol from the prisoner and put it ou the
table. Putteraon bud tbe right baud in hm
coat poeket. Witness cannot say that the
prisoner had the other hand in his coat
pocket. Witness described the position of
tho right hand at the time, and it Would appear as if tbe prisoner intended to shoot
without taking tbe pistol out of his pocket.
(Cross-examined by tho prisoner)- Witness
did not to-day contradict tbe tttatemen's
made in presence of the ni,i j-tc-it.-.i on a
former occusion. (Tin- informations were
read, and it appeared tbe evidence to-day
wasjiihtthe same as that given b-'f re).
A. Dlebtl, sworn—On the 28th of March
Wiggins was nt dinner, when Patterson came
iu and went tn the table where the constublo
was sitting. The prisoner's right hand was
in bis pocket when he said to Wiggins,
"You're the m-m I'm looking for." Wiggins
said "Who?" Prisoner answered ''ion.
Wiggins ■■(■-ml up nnd tlie prisoner said,
"Don't come near me; keep away." Wiggins
went back and got bis but, and went towards the prisoner as if he intended to puss
by. The prisoner turned, and Wiggins
caught him and threw bim down. In a little
while Wiggins disarmed the prisoner and
put a pistol on tbo . table. (Thin w itness illustrated tbe position of tbe right band of
the prisoner as it was when he threatened
Wiggins, and it was strong evidenci to,show
that the pistol was in a position toihoot Wig-
gins if it bad been tired in tlie pocketl.
Tbe prUonef very keenly referred to a
statement made by tbe witness on a former
o 'casion, which was thii —That the prisoner
turned to go, and WOM going, when VVigyina
tuok bold of him.
The informations were read, but this statement was not contained therein.
Prisoner—Oh,I know it is not in the piper,
but it was a statement made by the witneas
in thin Court.
By the foreman—Are you sure the prisoner
hail the pistol in Jus right hand at the time!
Prisoner (pointing tothe coat on bin back)
—This is the coat Iliad on ut the time, and
you will see tbat a pistol could not be there
without, being visible.
Con. Wiggins, sworn—He knows tbe prisoner. On Hie 28th of March last, in Dip b l's
restaurant, prisoner came in and »ai<], "I've
been lookiim foryou." Witnes-i niked, 'What
do ynu want with me?" Prisoner answered,
"W»n have been takingaway my character."
Prisoner   was st-indmg in  front of witness
price of tlie animal.      ^^^^^^^^^^^^«
The jury in tbe other caae re'urntd into
Court, and the foreman aaked his lordship if
I tbey could find the piisoner guilty of aaa-inlt

Hiii Lordship —Where is the other witness?
Mr, McColl.—He waa bound !ocome here,

The learned counsel entered tnolle pros^/ui,

Mr. McColl repreaented the Crown, aud
presented tbe jury with a short, lucid state
ment referring to facts which be engaged to
prove by competent witnesses,
Calvin .Sim psou, sworn — He is store keeper
and postmaster nt (iranville, ond be knows
tbe pri.inner. A £10 dollar gold piece and a
:?5.00 Iii 11 was stolen from tliR (*tore. As
post master, he received the money on the
'.tth of December laat, and nw it at night.
The next morning at fi o'clock it was gone.
The prisoner was tbe first person to enter
lhe store thut morning. Witnet-a gave him
a key. The bead book-keeper came in at 10
o'clock, and witness missed the money, and
then discovered chisel mirks 00 tbo cupboard in which it wns kept. After making
u search witness discovered in the lining of
the prisoner's hag tbe $10 gold piece and the
•$5 bill: tbe euin and the bill were produced
and identified by witness. (Crosseramined
by Mr. Bole). - §10 gold pieces are very like
each other.
A. J, Mowat, sworn.— Ho lives at fJran-
ville. He bulauci'd the eusb the morning tiie
money was uiinsed—it waa $].r,<"i0 short.
(Cross-examined by Mr, Bole).—Tiie bole in
the lining of (ho bug was near to tbe lock,
just iu tlie place where the lining wears first.
Mr. Bole, atbheasing the jury, said. It
has not boen proved clearly thut the money
produced ia the money stolen from Mr.
Simmon. The Crown having failed to prove
that these two articles wero the property of
Mr. SimDsou, we are not culled on to account for the manner in wluch this Chinaman hecame tho nwnor of iJffi.OO.
His I. -i i i*- ii j p i charged the jury, and
seemed to think tbe circumstantial evidence
against the Chinaman, mffletent, Tbe jury
retired and in fifteen minutes banded iiitu
verdict of guilty.
At 10 o'clock liU lordship took bis seat on
the bench.
- Benjamin Chapman WU placed in tbe

Did tho prisoner make any attempt to discharge the pistol. YuU must be satisfied beyond all doubt tliat such attempt was made
