be lit to represent James Fitzjames.
The music thst roused the clans to battle was really magnificent.

to exterminate the "dudes" of that city.
And they did kill a few. On Thursday
of last week Frank Crosby aged nine
years, one of the gang, was up before
the police magistrate The young assassin freely described ihe manner in which
he used the dagger, and said, "we organized to rid ihe country of 'dudes.'
I buried my dagger in the bi easts of

Those of our readers who remember
the artifices made use of by this prince
of humbugs, to secure his election at
Chilliwhack, will not be surprised at
the trick by which he was invited to
Langley, and an address presented to
him there. The chief object to be attained, was the opportunity to impose
upon the electors in view of an early
dissolution of the local legislature, and
to mislead the people of this province,
by having a garbled account of the
proceedings published in his own and
the Victoria papers. The facts of the
case were very simple. He had his
tools—truthful James and his henchman, Jim Orr—invited, so as to give
effect to the affair, but, at best, it was
an entire failure. His assumption of
the role of a Scotchman, could not be
swallowed by the Scotchmen who wero
enticed to visit Langley on the occasion, and they treated his palaver with
the greatest   contempt.     When   the
vehicle in which himself and his two
faithful coadjutors were seated, was
brought to u stand-still, a colloquy
arose between himself and the truthful,
aa to who should speak first. The truthful was induced to sav a little piece in
u hich fulsome laudation of the feminine
half of creation was tbe main feature.
Whtal the truthful hail done, honest
John threw himself into a graceful pose,
with oue foot on the wheel and the
other in the box, and commenced to
orate. The subjects chiefly touched
upon were the various acts of the
"policy," but pur+icularly the terms nf
the settlement bill. Touching the gift
of three million and a half of acres of
our best land to the Federal Government, he said  it   was the  best thing
ever dl for British Columbia.     That
tie land was so fur away that it never
would have been of any use to the pro
vincc; that in consideration of this
gift, the province gained about forty
millions of money; that is, tho Dominion Government intended to sell the
lands in the railway belt for five dollars
per acre, but in consequence of the
Peace river gift tliey intended to sell it
all for one dollar per acre, and that the
difference in price to the buyers would
be forty millions! We once heard of a
showman who told the crowd of little
boys who listened to him, that the elephant in his booth was so large that it
was brought home from "Bengal in the
West Indies" in three ships. Honest
John appeors to have believed lie had
equally gullible hearers who were prepared to swallow any statement he
might choose to make. The idea of
any part of British Columbia being too
far away, from any other part, to be
utilised, is certainly the most impudent
invention that we have heard for many
years; and his assertion that it would
always form part of the province, in
relation to revenue, is equally a fiction.
The gift will be administered entirely
by Federal officials, so that our readers
may judge of the amount of revenue
that will ever reach British Columbian
coffers. But his statement about the
Dominion Government selling the lands
in the railway belt for a dollar an acre,
is the most outrageous insult to the
common sense of his hearers that we
can well imagine, even from honest
John. Why, the Dominion Government have been publishing for the last
two or three months the character of
the land which may be taken up for a
dollar an acre, and it is so' good that we
republish the clause:—
'' The privilege of homestead and preemption entry shall only apply to surveyed agricultural lands; no person
shall be entitled to such entry for land
valuable for its timber, or for hay land,
or for land on which there is a stone or
marble quarry, or coal or other mineral
having coinniercitil value, or whereon
there is any water power which may
serve to drive machinery, or for land
whioh, by reason of its position, such
us being the shore of an important harbor, bridge site or canal site, or being
either an .actual or prospective railway
terminus or station, it will he in the
public interest to withhold from such
it must be remembered that this is
specially applicable to lands in British
Columbia, and in order to impress our
people to that effect, it has been published not only in the Government
"Cluzette," but also in every journal in
the provinoe even ill honest John's
own paper. Lei us ask then, how much
land, not being any of tho abovo described reservations, will be obtained
by settlers on the railway belt? If
Ordinary settlers ure not to be allowed
to take any but the refuse lands at a
dollar 1111 ncre, wha! will be done with
the rest ? why, it will be sold at the
highest prices it will fetch in market,
much of it, probably, selling for twenty
dollars per acre. And yet honest John
has the cool effrontery to stand up and
say that, in consideration of the gift of
three and a half million acres of the
people's property, the Federal Government was going to sell the lands in the
railway belt for a dollar an acre! But
the forty million business is perhaps the
most bare-faced statement of the whole
tissue of fictions with which he regaled his Langley audience. The railway
belt has some patches here and there,
of very good land, which the Federal
authorities will take care never reaches
the settler at a dollar an acre But
where sufficient land could he found to
make a difference of forty millions between one and five dollars per acre, no
living man can tell. In fact, in order
to palliate the gift, in the House, it was
stated by the honest John ministry that
the railway belt was little better than
barren mountains. How any men, be
their status or occupation what it may,
could be imposed upon by such transparent fictions as those enumerated by
honest John at Langley, is completely
beyond our comprehension, and we are
pleased to learn the number was principally confined to the few whose interests prepare them, to pretend at least,
to swallow anything enunciated by
honest John. The trick is, that a few
duly  prepared adherents, with an ad
dress prepared for them, shall act as
touters and pretend to In- awfully enlightened by what falls from the honest
man. At Langley, however, they made
few converts, for after listening for a
little while to honest John's oration,
they started olf to the sports and left
the decoy ducks to listen to the remainder. An attempt was made to get
up three cheers for the lovely trio, but
it was only responded to by the decoys.
Our readers must bear in mind that,
James the truthful and Jim Orr, the
hero of the telegram to Ottawa, in
which lie stated that nine-tenths of the
people of this province were iu favor
of the settlement bill, were beside honest John, and of course, endorsed all his
statements People have heard both
the truthful and Jim Orr iwpress themselves as opposed to certain measures
of the honest John government: after
the Langley fiasco, it will be easy to
judge how far they can be liclieved.
From Ibe Ou.rdlau.
It would appear that the honest John
Government has got itself into a very
pretty mess, in their servility to the
coal monopoly, that they created by
the Settlement bill. We learn from a
verv pertinent and timely article, in the
Nanaimo "Freo Press" of July 1st, that
the security taken from the Crocker,
Stanford, Huntington, and Dunsmuir
Company, for the due construction of
the Island Railway, may be perfectly
worthless, and that the company may be
so crippled in consequence of the present financial crisis in the United States,
that they may bo unable to carry out
their contract. The facts as described
by the "Free Press" are as follows :
The company were required to deposit
a sum of $250,000 as security for the
proper carrying out of their contract
anent the Island railway, which, it appears, they did, by depositing a cheque
for the amount. They took care, it
seems, to exhibit the cheque to everyone they met, as much as to say, like a
conjuror in a penny show, "you see,
here is the money, there's no deception."
But after the money was deposited and
our verdant ministers had been duly
patted on the back and tickled with
the assurances of their great ability and
perspecuity, they were induced to allow
Crocker & Co. to withdraw the money,
and deposit in its stead, bonds of the
Southern Pacific Railway, to a like
amount. These bonds had a very problematical value at any time, but with
recent disclosures it looks very like as
if they were not worth a red cent. The
company who ostensibly issued them
are unable even to pay their employes,
and may havo to seek relief in the
bankruptcy court for all we know to
the contrary. What is the natural
conclusion ? Simply, that this company
were foreign adventurers, who sought
to secure our valuable coal lands, in
order to bolster up thoir failing credit,
and for ought we know, may havo already hypothecated them. Of course,
supposing the contract has been properly drawn up, certain conditions
must be properly carried out, or their
contract will be void ; but everything
connected with our Local Government
appears to bo done in such a slipshod
way, as, for instance, their agreement
with the Federal Government through
the Settlement bill, that we have strong
doubts as to the stability of the conditions exacted from Crocker 4 Co.
Sliould it turn out that these sharp
practised gentlemen have got what they
would term, the "bulge" on us, they
will certainly take advantage, and manipulating the coal measures as they
may find it to their interest to do, they
may defer the construction of the
Island railway to the "sweet by and
bye ; and judging by their adroit abstraction of the ?250,000 security, they
appear to have had some such idea in
their heads. The presence of Mr.
Dunsmuir here, and his supposed
wealth, is no guarantee whatever. Mr.
Dunsmuir himself may havo been deceived ; they may have drained him as
well as the bank deposit. There is no
stipulation by which any member of
the company is bound to be solvent at
any particular time. But the reader
will ask, "of what use was the interposition of the Dominion Government if
they did not guarantee the faithful
completion of the contraot, in which
they were kind enough to give away
our coal lands as the consideration for
its completion ?" True ; but did they
consent to allow Crocker & Co. to take
the money out of the bank 1 If they
did so, then they are entirely responsi
ble, and we must look to them for protection against Crocker & Co., and the
restitution of the lands and final abrogation of the Settlement bill. But, if
the poor creatures we call ministers
have allowed themselves to be imposed
upon by the company, the people of the
Island havo been simply sacrificed by
simpletons, to the rapacity of adventurers. The sacrifices in time and
money, so far as the peoj.'e of this Pro-
■ Vine* hav» suffered, in eonaequence of
the fatal Settlement bill, are something
very considerable, and the bitter feeling evoked by what was undoubtedly a
heartless robbery of our people, will
certainly not be decreased by recent
revelations. But, it must be remembered that our ministers forced the
Settlouaent bill through in spite of tbe
moat earnest proteaiW 011 the part of the
great majority of tbe people outtide of
the Legislative Assembly, and that, as
the chief promoters of the Settlement
bill, our ministers are alone to blame.
We must, therefore, look to them personally, for the 8250,000, if for nothing
else, and they should be made to restore
that sum, or as much as they can pro
vide with all their possessions. It is
bad enough, that by imposing them
selves upon the people aa capable of
conducting our Government, they have
caused us many sacrifices and much humiliation and distress ; but when they
take upon themselves to give away our
money, they must expect to be called
to account. As for Messrs. Smithe,
Davie & Drake, they can expect no
sympathy ; we told them that honest
John is the very spirit of misfortune,
aud would be sure to land them in some
disagreeable slough of despond. But
their inexperience and great opinions
of their own perspecuity, have tho
roughly misled them, and they will
bitterly regret the day when honest
John became their colleague. Ab for
him, it does not make the slightest difference how the affair turns out; he
reached the goal of his ambition when
he was made Provincial Secretary. He
may have desired to be Premier, but
found it would be rather dangerous to
press the matter. He may have to
lose something, but that we doubt; he
iray have possessed some money, but
like snow, it melts and runs through
his fingers. With all his opportunities, his ill-luck seems uhvi.ys to follow
him, and it would be hard to say what
sum he might be worth at the present

The Nanaimo 1>irastek.—The explosion
in the South Wellington Mim-aat Nauaimo,
on Monday of Inst week, is the worst disaster of the kind tbat hns ever taken place in
British Columbia. Twenty-three men were
taken nut dead, aud had the explosion taken
place half au hour later in the day, tli
numher would probably have been swelled
to nearly one hundred. Only a portion of
the working force hail gono Into tbe mine,
and of these a number were close to tbe bot'
torn of theshaft when the explosion occurred,
and to this'act tliey owe their lives. Of
the number that had actually gone into the
workings not one Escaped, and it will always
be a question whether the explosion was the
result of accident or care lea-in ess. Concern-
ng the disnster, the Nauaimo "Free Press"
of Wednesday last, says: "Taking thirty
years that, the industry -f coal mining has
been carried on in this city and district,
there has been a remarkable freedom from
these terrible and almost overwhelming disasters. The explosion wa* felt for a long
way around, and the greatest force was toward the No. 4, or IrufT shalt, and aeveral
men in that direction barely ei-u'iiped with
their lives. The fearful loss of life for this
difi'.rict hascnet quite a gloom over tho community nt large and the deepest sympathy is
expressed for tho,u who have h ;en so sud

parties were at once lustitnted under the leu
dership of Mr. J. Bmden, manager, and the
several overmen, and every effort made to

The Democrats and Their Aspirants.—
Tiidkn, Hancock, and John Kelly.—
Eno in Canada.—The Annexation Society.—Cures by Faith.
(From onr own correspondent.)
New York, June 2Uth. '84,
The Democratic convention assembles at
Chicago this day weok. The matter with
the democrats is that they have an "cmla-
ras de riches"- too many able men anxious
to be President. The republicans were by
no means hard up for men willing to sacrifice themselves, but the name is legion of the
democratic aspirants. General Hancock is
spoken of once more, and if he consents he
will no duubt secure the nomination. He
would have been elected in 1880, hut that
his political friends—including Tilden—betrayed him. Tilden was not then quite so
much of a corpse as he is now, and was jealous of Hancock. He did not want to see
him elected to the Presidency while he had
been rejected, and besides he thought he
.should have been nominated notwithstanding his own letter of declineation. A queer
old man is Samuel I, Tilden, the sage of Grey-
stone. Then, again, Tammany Hall has a

JuNEiUth., 1884.
Tho past week v;*as characterized by a w ild
commotion in tho usually dignified United
States Senate. Discord was prevalent, not
only on questions of importance, but personal offences were paraded before the world,
and allowed to OOBnunt some valuable time.
Two Senators enacted a scene that lifted
them into ephemeral distinction. Senator
lngalls charged, in a freezing manner that
few can assume more th .oughly than he,
that t..e Spm.tor from Georgia had inters*
l*,t 'in a speech, which was printed m the
reco d, a sentence w! ich had not 1 een uttered on the floor of t.ieSona e. *i here were
six words in thu sen, -jcc, and tliey wc.e a
prediction that Mr. ngalls, who bad not
mtxC.o a certain ■ tatement in cply to Mr.
Brown in U-bate, would not make it at any
future time. The words looked innocent
enough in print, but Mr. lngalls thought
they contained a mine of depravity. He was
willing to submit to the fortunes of open debate out wanted to be secure from Parthian
arrows, which a flying enemy might discharge
from the safe ambush of the pnnti.ig ..trice.
Before closing ho compared Senator Brown
to a "Thug stabbing a sleeping enemy.''
The Mexican Pension bill has caused no
end of disturbance, for the end has not yet
come. Senator lngalls further d isttngnisbed
himself by leading the Senate Republican
caucus into adopting his amendment to this
bill, giving the Union soldiers arrearages of
pension. This will cost the country at least
$275,000,000; and the Democrats call it
demagogue legislation. But the anxiety of
both parties to catch the soldier vote is s>
great that little opposition is likely to be developed in either House. It** bitterest opponents, so far, have been Senators Morgan,
and V- iUiams, Thu Alabama Senator said
it waa distinctly a Republican measure,
which the party felt instructed by their Chicago platform to carry nnt; but that it inadu
no claim upon him. The Kentucky Senat'T
insisted that the bi)) could never get through
the House in such shape, and implored ths
Senators tn withdraw the amendment, and
give the Mexican soldiers a little boat all to
themselves. "Why swamp and sink tin ir
vessel," said he. "by putting half a million
men in ittH He claimed that if political
capital wa«the:r object, they would not gaiu
a vote. The Union soldiers had not asked
for it. They were powerful enough to go
through on their own merits when their time
comes. They did not want to lie hitched on
to the snpernnuated bsnd <>f Mexican heroes.

The chronic distrust entertained in Italy
renarding French designs in Africa is again
v&ry apparent in the comments ot the Italian
press regarding recent occurrences in Morocco. The papers declare that notwithstanding Premier Ferry's fine protestations,
the object of France in encouraging the impudent pretensions of the Sheriff ol Wazan,
aud in making a naval demonstration off the
coast of Morocco is obviously to overthrow
Sultan Mulev Hassan and the I I'ali dynasty
in favor of tho sherif of Wazan' who is now
their aociiinplice, and would then be their
tool in effecting a French protectorate over
Morocco. The ultimate design of France,
these papers tuy, i.s to secure control of the
entrance of the Mediterranean, of w hich
Tangier is as much the key as the rock of
Gibraltar itself. Italy, as well as every power
bordering on the Mediterranean, is vitallv
interested in preventing this control, unci
the papers demand a reprisal in the shape of
Italian occupation of Tripoli. That country
tht,y say, belongs to Italy by geographical
position quite aa much as Alg'iers belongs to
France, and thev believe that Italy should
have a firm foothold ou the south Mediterranean coast to watch and foil the colonixing
or rather, buccaneering schemes of France.

qualification. The precise I'hcIh are
given in the appendix to Lord Brongh

and application had been inui,e by his
executors tu tbe I lean uud Chapter of
Westminster l,,r permission to bury him
in Poets' Corner. Hut uo such formal
application was made. An inquiry was
indeed made of l>r. Ireland, Dean ol
Westminster, without instiuctious from
tne executors, whether the permission
if asked for, would be granted; and an
answer was given in the negative. Hyron was accordingly buried at Iliicknnli
Church, neur Newstead A'..'bey. Ten
years later Dr. Ireland refused to allow
the statue of the poet by l horwaldsen a
place in the Abbey. "1 du indeed," he
said, "greatly wish for a figure by Thor-

settling here, he built, in quick sneces
sion a seiies ol minor lines in the sain,
region, contriving, by these various
transactions, tj poke! enormous sums ol
money. He purchased mines in Westphalia, bought estates in Bohemia nnd
elsewhere, and built a palatial mansion
in Berlin, now the British Knibassy.
Hut that his pace hurl been much too

his contract for the construction of the
Roumanian railways anil then followed
some desperate attempts to retrieve his
fortunes, which resulted in his bankruptcy and bis neteniion for nearly n
year in u Prussian jail. And then he
fell, never to rise tuaiii. A yearor two
ago he founded a half penny newspaper,
the K'eine Journal favorable to the Prussian Government. Bnt l.is luck had

enterprise to nl ner hands, he removed
to London, whence he again relumed
to Berlin a few weeks since, completely

to die. Prince Bismark himself was
always ready to admit that Dr. Stroiia-
