THE VANCOUVER HERALD,
VAjreouvER, jan. ■
INTRODUCTORY.
In obedience to custom, we formally
introduce to the public
Herald. Its publication is undertaken
because it is believed the new city can c
trill soon be able to support a newspapei
and the citizens desired to have on(
They thought   that   owing to conflictin
ts they s(
from the pi
tion of this locality demanded. It is
probably not necessary nor e^en desirable to say much about the Herald.
Promises are easily made and as easily
broken, and the better way will' be to let
flie   public   form their   opinion   of   the
.. JSaperon-ite merits, whatever they may
be. This-nvuch, however, may be said:
that it is the intention, to- make the
Herald a Canadian  newspaper.    After
i$/eQ and Provincial affairs, those of the
Dominion will receive the greatest share
of.its attention and occupy the largest
portion of its space. It is not the intention to run it in the interests of any
party.    It Will try to be just to all, and
; any measure that has for its object the
development of the resources of the
•country and the improvement, socially,
morally and intellectually, of the people.
One v
■  theii
rd   i
sntion to
I Herald, but nothing reflecting on private character will be admitted in its columns, no matter how well it may be authenticated.    "With these  brief remarks
. we commend the Herald and ife short-'
comings, for these are likely to be numerous, to the tender mercies of a discerning public, believing that if it tries
■ to do what is fair and right it will be
-done fairly by.
THE -DOMINION LICENSE ACT.
1 The decision of the Privy Council, giving control of the liquor traffic to the
Provincial governments, seems the best
-disposition that can be made of this quejs-.
• tion. Local governments are in a better
position to judge of the nature of the
restraints to be put upon the traffic than
the Dominion Government possibly can
be. All the Provinces have not been
educated up to the same standard in respect to this matter. What miglit be
accepted in Ontario as correct legislation
respecting it would probably be rejected
in British Columbia as an interference
with private rights. How fie decision
may affect the Scott Act remaink to b<r
seen. It is stated that the hotel men are;
going to test its validity. Erom what
we know of the working of the. Scott
Act, we hardly think that its, repeal
would he any serious injury to the
growth of the temperance sentiment.    It
EXPORT%:AND IMPORTS.
Asamatterofconrse the Dominion is
going to the dogs, according to the Toronto Globe, through the mismanagement
of the. present Governmeat. The exports
and imports are less than they were a
year ago,, and this forms the ground for'
the charge- made against . it. The
exports, it is generally beliewd, depend
a good deal upon the crops, and the crops

U. -S. people have the same complaint to
make respecting the export business: of
that country. There has been a great
falling off. They do not, however, blame
their government for this, but, like sensible people, seek to ascertain the cause.
They find that the supplies from other
countries, to. ..the British markets are
yearly increasing in 'volume,, and.- because
of the cheap l;il,..i "..f Egypt and India,
they are unable to compete ' with • them,
and having fountRfee cause, will try and
find a remedy., Canada is similarly situated to the States, but in this country
the only remedy sought for, or desired by,
a certain class, of politicians is to blame

As to the imports, the smaller they are
as a whole the better it is for the country. It is pretty good evidence that
home production- is taking the place of
the foreign product.

A petition is in circulation, and is being largely signed, asking for a daily

went to see the affair, ^and looked wi
great interest at their dusky sisters dan

music was made by beating sticks upi
boards. A few aristocrats had instr

*3ur of meeting, Blair's hall was well
filied, and by the time proceedings' were
commenced there must have been about
two hundred and fifty present. This
mwthaye been a very unusual gathering
fqif this place—probably considerably
'moire than its whole population less than
a yfcar ago. Mr. Robs on received a very
cordial greeting, and wa» frequently applauded during the course of his remarks-
Mr;. Caldwell was put in the chair, and
introduced the speaker to the audience, a
number of whom, no doubt, saw him for
the first time, and a greater number for
the, first time heard him speak. Mr.
Robson is still in the prime of life, has
all the appearance of being an active
business man, and is a pleasant speaker.
There appears to be nothing high strung
about him. His position as Provincial
Secretary does  not seem  to have given

thought that the Railway company had

in the site of the new city about 2,000
acres.    The. committee   have gone   one

distance of about five miles along .the
Inlet, arid southward about two miles.

his remarks, by expressing pleasure at see.-

anxjther kind of entertainment. He also
spoke of the meeting* h& had when seeking their suffrages. He felt, and all present no doubt felt, a peculiar interest in.,
the new City of Vancouver. It, certainly
waithe city of the near future on the Pacific Coast, and towards which many eyes
weie turned. He felt that he had done
what he could to advance the interests of
his&eonstituents, and he did not fear to
give an account of his stewardship. His
position in the Government had been of
advantage to him in this. respect. He
referred. to< the- promises he had madex-to
