McGILL UNIVERSITY,

current year has been issued. There
are many items of interest and suggestions for further improvement mentioned? Among the latter, one respecting

hand, will tindecleve the settlers
to a great deal of ill-feeilng. The Dominion
Government will lose the confidence of many
who relied on ii and the old "fight Canada
policy" is likely to be renewed,
CISTOMS TAKiri S,
By thc recent increase in the duty upou
certain liquors, notably Brandy, the importers j
of Nanaimo have been compelled to pay large
sums into the Dominion Treasury not contemplated at the time the liquors were ordered.
This is a kind of injustice that Is likely to give
encouragement to evasion of the law, and is
tantamount to a premium on smuggling.
The well known axiom that ' 'a reduction
of duty on certain articles of commerce confers
the greatest protection to certain industries"
should be applied to British Columbia, We
do not refer to Liquors, but to other commodities which are now heavily taxed, and which
we do not produce. It is perfectly legitimate
we think for governments to exercise a judicious discretion in carrying out the policy of
"enlightened selfishness" and British Columbia offers a fair field for the exercise of
discretion in the matter of Customs Duties.
CARRY THE NEWt.
The report makes mention of the munificent donation of the Hon. D. A
Smith towards the establishment of
classes for women. This gift amounts
to $iao,ooo. and will enable the Uni
versitv to provide separate classes for
women in all the four years of the course in arts. These classes have been
very well attended, and it is expected
that, as their great advantages, become
better known, their usefulness will be
very largely increased, Another suggestive paragraph In the report is that referring to the relation of the higher
schools to the university. The report
states that the endowment fund of the
university, being very inadequate to the
present needs of the university, that corporation is compelled to accept the
Legislative aid annually granted it.
This, the govenors of McGill say,' they
would gladly dispense with—were the
university self-supporting—in favor of
of the extensiou and improvements of
the preparatory schools.
Whilst the country rejoices at the improve-
mevt in Sir John's health, much anxiety is
felt for McKenzie who has been very ill since
the last of March.     ,—■ /
Washington  Territory has been admitted  as
a State by a large vote.
The "Medical Act," of 18S6 will become a
law of the Province on Tuesday next. At
present the "Medical Ordinance." of 1867,
governs the practice of medicine to some ex-
lent. It is to be regretted that any such legislation as that embodied in the new Act
should' have taker, place. The creation of a
monopoly of this kind lowers thc dignity of
the profession—it.is always the last resort of
the incapables, who failing to maintain their
standing by merit seek to do so by the aid of
parliament. Together with the "Legal Professions Act" it constitutes an injustice to the
public and is Ihe outcome of narrow and selfish views on the part of- (we are sorry to say)
n majority of professional men.
STOCK SPECULATING DECLARED GAMBLING.
A majority of judges, including Chief
Justice. Doriqri and Justices Cross and
Tessier, in the Court of Appeal at
Montreal, decided lately that.an action
brought by Messrs. Macdougall Bros.,
stock brokers, for a balance of $1,239
due by a client named Darners, could
not be recovered, as it was a gambling
transaction in which there was nothing
deliveredbetween plaintiffs and defendant. Justice Ramsay and Monk, who
dissented from the majority of the Court,
held that the contract entered into between the parties was not one so discouraged by law as to prevent it from
being the subject of an, action, that
there was no gambling, and even supposing there was, gambling was not illegal in itself. The majority of the
Court, however, held a different view,
and confirmed the judgement of the
Court below in favour of defendant.
It hi not yet been sfficiently publsh:
ed thr ughout Canada that the home
government leaves us free to deal with
Chinese immgratlon b we please. On
May ;v, 1884, Earl Derby, then Colonial Secretary in Mr. Gladstone's government of the time, addressed the following despatch to the Governor General!
I have the honor tc Inform you that Her
Majesty has not been advised to disallow acts
passed in the Australian colonies restricting
by very strict provisions the immigration or
Introduction of Chinese. Her Majesty's government has hot held that the relations of this
country with China require them to interfere
with the Australian legislation on international grounds, and it has been treated as a matter
of internal administration with which a responsible colonial government is compentent
ao deal. When, therfore the Dominion ministers advise your lordship with regard to
these acts you may say that the question is
not held to Involve imperial interest, and that
you should deal with it as a Canadian question only.
These two points are now established:
First, that the home government leaves
us free to please ourselves In this matter.
And, next, that the Chinese government, so far from seeking to promote
the exodus of its subjects to foreign
shores, prefers that they should remain
at home. The truth is that the Chinese
who come to North America are all
or nearly all shipped froni the British
port of Hong Kong, by parties who
carry on the bnslness in order to make
money out ot it. As regards the Chinese question we have been living under
two grand mistakes. It has been assumed that the Chinese government was
all the time desperately anxious to get
as many of its subjects as possible shipped off to America. Also, that the
British government would not allow us
to legislate against their incoming, for
fear of giving offence to China. All
humbug, so it now appears. It therefore appears that the only opponents of
home interests we have to deal with are
those of our own household—the cranks
amongst ourselves—who will have, it
that "cheap labour" is a blessing to
the country.—Toronto World.

A GREAT GRAIN FLEET AT CHICAGO.
Awaiting JipOpanlivs of Navigation—Signs of
a Prosperous Season Among Seafaring
Folk.
NEW ADVERTISEMENTS
JOSEPH M. BROWN,
Advices from the Straits state that
teams are still crossing on the Ice in
every direction, consequently it is fair
to presume vessel communication between the Upper and Lower Lakes will
not be established much before the
middle of April. Chicago vessel men
however, are making active active preparations for the opening of navigation.
The grain fleet which will sail from
Chicago at the opening of navigation
will be the largest that ever left this
port, which means that It will be the
largest that ever sailed from any port in
the world. At present there are thirty-
seven steamers and sixty-four schooner.*
loaded with grain. Their cargoes aggregate 5,065,000 bushels, and the probabilities are this amount will be swelled
to 6,000,000 by the time the Straits are
free of ice. This is about double the
quantity of grain shipped from Chicago
at the opening of navigation last year.
Vessel men are quite hopeful of a prosperous season, and this feeling is shared
by shippers and all others interested in
lake commerce. Their expectations
are based on the general improvement
of the iron and lumber industries the
quantity of grain awaitihg shipment, the
prevalent opinion that railway rates to
the seaboard will beheld tip and the
general prosperity of the country. The
elevators at Chicago, Milwaukee and
Duluth are well stocked with grain, and
more ore has been mined this winter
than for several years. A larger stock
of cedar has also been got out and the
log cut is estimated to be fully equal to
former years.
WATCHES and CLOCKS cleaned
and repaired at tery reasonable rates.

Gladstone's attempt to govern Ireland by
trust rather than intimidation is a practical
applcation of the theory- that is at tha.-kiund*-
ation of representative government. He has
shown at the age of 77 that he has the courage
of his convictions, and deserves all honour for
staking everything on the result. His scheme
is likely to be sustained.'
A Strange Suit.
Mexico does not stands upon her dignity in the matter of extraditing fugitive-
criminals, treaty or no treaty, but hands
them oyer, forthwith. - A Winnipeg
bank defaulter is now on his way back
from there, having been delivered up
with little ceremony. Rogues who propose to flee from their responsibilities
make a mistake when they count upon
the unsavory character of the Mexican
Government.:—Toronto World.
It was stated in the Herald of last
week that Mr. Alexander had sold a couple of lots to a chinaman, near False
Creek. We are pleased to be able to
state that, on finding the Sale was not
looked upon with favor, and those living
in the vicinity of the lots were dissatisfied
he bought them back and paid considerably more fo. them than the selling price.
All men can, and do make mistakes, but
it is only the few who have the courage
to acknowledge them. This is a trait of
character which deserves recognition rnd
no douct the people of this place will so
regard it.—Vancouver Herald,
Tha Southwestern strike is gaining ground

about $4,000,000.
One of the fhe features of the Colonial and Indian Exhibition will be a
journal for the Canadian department
of the exhibition. This will be entirely
a Canadian product. It will be prir.ted
on Canadian-made paper, with Canadian ink, Conadian type, and of Canadian press, supplied with illustrations by
Canadian artists and engravers, and edited and published by Canadians.  It
will be in operation in the Canadian department of the building and will bean
interesting object   lesson for   foreign
visitors.  The contents of   the paper
will be reprinted in book form after the
exhibition is over and will embrace statistics of the whole Dominion, including
the information contained in the handbook to be issued by the government.
This will be sent as a memorial of the
great exhibition to public libraries boards
of trade and commercial institutions
through the colonies and Great Britain.
The cities of Hamilton,  Montreal and
other places are having special descriptions prepared for these publications,
and the department of education is having its pamphlet descriptive of the educational system of Ontario, included
in the volume.

Horace Hamme)'( formerly a well-
known and highly respected resident of
Camden, N. J., but who was sent to
State prison for wrecking a new building, has instituted a peculiar suit in the
Camden Courts. It is against Camden
Lodge, 155, I. 0. 0. F., for sick benefits from 1881 to date, amounting in
the aggregate to $1,100. Mr, Ham-
mell, while serving his time in prison,
contracted disease and was pardoned,
and for the past four years has been
confined to his house. Having kept
up his membership in the lodge he now
claims the sick benefits. Camden
Lodge denies responsibility, alleging
that Mr. Hammell's conviction of n
high crime debars him from any benefits,
especially as his sickness was contracted
in prison. Mr. Hammell's attorney
holds, however, that no conviction of a
Court will operate as a forfeiture of his
client's sick banefit unless the lodge in
accordance with its rules and regulations, expels the convicted member.

shutting out of future generations by the
administration of yesterday or day, from
participation in the possession of the
natural resources of thc country could
possibly be perpetual. In tne face of
what has happened, and what is daily
happening, a government must be shortsighted indeed to create a cast-iron
monopoly out of which there is no escape, but by the costly and disturbing
method of repeal.
And yet when the Island   Railway
Company became invested with the Island Railway lands, not a single provision was enacted to protect the company from an ultimate reversal of thc
governments action by the people, or
to protect the people from an absolute
despotism answerable to no tribunal
for the  manner in which it executes
what should have been a sacred trust.
Men who look at the subject in the
light of history would hesitate to invest
money in Island Railway Company's
stock because the nature of the monopoly does not afford security—its permanence   is threatened by the   very
terms that makes it so absolute.    From
the point of view of a person not pecuniarily interested the act which disposed of Island Railway lands bears on
its face the impress of unconstitutionality—it places the actual settler in such
a disadvantageous position as to retard
settlement, it embodies an unpreccnted
method of dividing land, so that the fee
simple is vested in the Railway TJom-
simply barbarous; from the branding
iron down to the cattle car it is one
procession of 1 cruelties in which the
spur, the lash, starvation, freezing and
thirst are only the most salica: features.
To-day we hear that two hundred thousand cattle are frozen to death, yesterday they perished of thirit,tp-morrow,the
Spanish fever or starvation will whiten
the plains with another contingent to
the vast accumulations of bones that
have written the ghastly history of the
cattle business all over the Western half
of North America. Leaving aside altogether the question of profit—(and it
can be shown that financial disaster has
have proven constitutional.
The great objection to Chinese arises i _
from the fact that those who are intent iBOOKS AND        STATIONERY
upon acquiring possession of the whole
of the natural resources of the.country
find in them a, weapon with which, to j
crush the independence that white men [
always assert in the presenceof wrong
doing, and from the fact that they have
no political instincts nor any vital inters

I have been at all sports all my life.
Salmon and trout I have killed in England; in the Christchtirch Avon salmon,
in thc Test trout only. I Ifave fished
in the Wye, the Uik for salmon, the
Monnow for trout, and many other
rivers the names of which I forget for
the moment. In Scotland I have fished
thc Spey,theLochy,the Spean.the Roy,
etc. In Ireland the Blackwater, the
Bride, th» Lee, and other rivers. In
Canada, on the edge of Labrador, the
Natasquhan.
In Lower Canada and New Brunswick the Restigouche, the Metapediac,
and tke Apsulquitich. The best twenty-
one consecutive days' salmon fishing I
ever had was in September (I forgot if
it was 1882 or 1883, but I can ascertain,) I killed 158 fish averaging about
14 pounds in the twenty-one days, an
average of 7^ fish per diem. The
largest number in one day was 12, and
on another day 11 fish, and they were
very pleasantly distributed over the
time. I was alone; the friends who
were coming for half the time unfortunately could not come. The largest
fish 1 ever killed was 26 pounds.
Have killed a good many between that
weight and 20 pounds. In Great Brit.
ain and Ireland I think a 15 pound fish
giyes more sport thao the larger ones.
In Canada a 25 pound fish will runabout and
jump clean out of the water like a sea trout

The banks were all closed for the day, but
after a great deal of trouble he managed to,
get ^400 for the two. Gord n took the
money and,.started. The next thing Wolsley
heard of him was from Colonel Stewart, a
man very differently constituted and with far
more of the savoir faire, who wrote him a
long. description of their arrival at Cairo.
"To my horror," wrote Stewart, "there was
,a horrid old man, atone blind, who came to
see him, and Gordon—who appeared to have
great admiration for him—seeing him in distressed circumstartcesHrtntietnately gave him
^300." Lord Wolslej then gave a vivid
picture of Gordon's position in Khartoum,
which he described as the most horrible and
heartrending he could conceive,
