and subscriptions after the 17th of January
were his own, any sum paid for previous indebtedness, he had no claim to. Any

have been so advanced without any knowledge,

An attempt is being made to humbug the people into the belief that the
Liquor License system of this province
will be the question at issue next election. Let no one natter himself that
ft'ch will be the case. Any sincere de-
si re to lesson the drinking habits of the
people would emanuate from the people
and would involve the abolition of the
present monopoly system, and the substitution therefor of freedom to all to | such our contention,

and the enactment of strict regulations
HONOUR TO WHOM HONOUR IS DUE.
Notwithstanding the fact that on a very
grave question involving we think the future
prosperity of this Island, we find ourselves
utterly opposed to the policy advocated by
the Victoria Colonist, it affords us genuine
pleasure to perceive that that journal which
can never be accused of neglecting the interest of Victoria, favours the system of granting
bonuses to industrial establishments. There
can be no more judicious expenditure of money
in this country than expenditure made to
foster manufacturies.    Such is our belief and
concerning disorderly houses, with direct
responsibility on the part of the vendors

New Under-Secretary for the Home Department
A   rather   excitedly   worded   cable
fl6spatch from England, the other day,
announced that Mr. Gladstone had ac-1
tually taken into his government as an
Undersecretary  of State, a  man  who J
had been a stone  mason and who had j
never had a  grammar  school, not  to'
speak  of a  college  education.     The j
political and social structure in  Great j
Britain was supposed  to  be shaken to:
its   foundation   by this   extraordinary
event, and Mr. Gladstone's government
was regarded as doomed to immediate
destruction, while as  yet  hardly born.
Mr. Broadhurst is the son of a journeyman  stone  mason, and   in   1840   was
born in a cottage near Oxford.    LTntil
fourteen years of age he attended the I
village   school  at   internals  when   he
could be spared  from working in the |
little garden which contributed to  the
support of the family, when  he was'
withdrawn to learn his father's trade, j
He was so skilful  that at  the age of!
seventeen   he   received   journeyman's;
wages, and was admitted to the mem-1
bership of the Masons'  Union,    His'
work compelled him to visit all parts of
Great Britain, though   the  greater part j
of his time was spent in  London.    As j
an  officer  of the   Masons' Union  he-
took a prominent part in  the lock-out
of   1872,  which   he   brought   to   an
merit.    In that year he'
was elected  Secretary  to the   Labor;
Representation   League   and   he  laid;
aside the chisel and hammer for good. •
In 1875 he was elected Secretary of the;
Parliamentary Committee of the Trades'
Union   Congress.    In   1S7S   he   was
chosen by the workmen of Stoke-on-
Toronto, March 30.-Rumours are Trent as their candidate, and he  was
rife on the streets to-day regarding the elec.teil [)y  a iarge  toajbrity over his

WESTWARD HO !
SATURDAY \pril 3. "886
Perhaps the most ridiculous election rumour that has been set afloat
this season is the announcement that
T. E, Peck is to oppose D. W. Cordon
in the next contest as an aspirant to the
honour of representing Vancouver
District in the House of Commons.
To begin with, there will not be an election for that House for a year or
eighteen months, and when it does occur, it will be discovered that Gordon
has lost neither his popularity nor his
influence. No member of either the
Local or Dominion parliaments, that
represents this province, has deserved
better at the handi of the electors than
the member for Vanceuver. Had he
opposed the other members for British
Columbia and coincided with Sir John
Macdonald, when that statesman
pointed out the great evils that would
follow the passage of the Settlement
Act by the legislature of British Columbia, when that measure was being discussed in Council previous to its introduction in the Victoria House, he might
have averted the regretable consequences that have been saddled on this
country for all time. When the proper
time comes he will doubtless be able to
give a satisfactory explanation of his
oonduct on that occasion. In every
other instance he has proved himself to
be an effecient, honest and faithful
representative, and we believe there is
no other individual member of either
legislative body that enjoys so fully and
unreservedly the confidence of his constituents. If he stands again he is certain of re-election. Mr, Peck may be
a very good citizen, and has the reputation of being a capital hotel-keeper,]
but one would imagine that after their!
experience with Bunster this constituency cannot be anxious to go back to
that class of man in order to find a
capable and trustworty representative
of its views and aspirations. Such a
supposition is preposterous, In this
instance the farce has preceeded the
play, and it was such a miserable farce j
that the intelligent electors of Vancouver
District are not eager to have it
repeated as an afterpiece by the;
election of T. Ekic Pf.ck to the House
of Commons eighteen months hence.
We are wont to worship the heroes
who caary off the palms, but give little
heed to the rank and file that have con-
tributed everything to the victory.
The greatest acts of self denial and.
devotion are done so quietly and with
so little ostentaton that we do not ob-
serve them until too late for practical
recognition. The industrious uncomplaining wife, .knitting and stitching,
giving herself up voluntarily to the*
worst drudgery in the world—house'
work,scarcely excites sympathy.and yet
the enormity of the sacrifice occasionally
becomes glaringly apparent when Time
with his sickle reaps a green life and
gathers it into his sheaf, and little ones
who knew neither trouble nor care
awaken to learn the value of a
mother and the man finds that home
is home no longer. Women are not all
angels, but in their self denial and devotion to family and husband they are
the one redeeming element of life.
We think thc personel experience of
every married man wiill bear us out when [
we say to young men, "Get married,",
and when you do, abandon everything!
that interferes with the spending of all
the time you can spare from work in the
domestic circle. There, is to be fouud
the truest happiness this world can afford, cultivate the domestic field and
lighteen the servitude of your wife.
The monotory and confinement of.
womans existence shortens her life and
renders her a prey to diseases that man';
more frequently escapes.    It is a poor ■
consolation to acknowledge the nobility
of a womans life when she is in her
grave.    Only women—and the best of:
them often—know how sweet is the!
tribute of praise and appreciation when,
life and health permit them to bask in;
its increase.^ and how heavy becomes
the  burden of care under the system
that only too often has led men to look
upon home as something a little better
than an eating station.    Perhaps in this
respect the wealthy suffer as much as
the poor.
An amusing tragedy comes to us
from thc land of tragedies across the
border.
A young man was travelling along
the road when he overtook an old
friend who was known as "Bill the
Devil." As Bill was on foot and Tom
was driving Tom asked him to get up and
ride along with him. Bill had no objection so they journied along quite
pleasantly. Presently they sighted a
grove full of people apparently singing.
"What is that," said Bill ? "A camp-
meeting," said Tom. "I.ct us go
there," said Bill? "Oh, no," said
Tom, "I could'nt pray, 1 have'nt
prayed for fourteen years." "You
have'nt," said Bill (pulling out his revolver) "well, you'd better begin now,"
and Tom did. With a revolver at his
ear he prayed so fervently that when
Bill let him rise from his knees he declared it was the best attempt at praying for a man who was out of practice
that he had heard for years.
This is what is the matter with the
Victoria Colonist. For years Victoria
enjoved thc privilege of Iieing a free
port, to the exclusion of all the other
ports in the province, later on, Victoria
having laid in a large stock of goods,
under the provisions of the B. N. A.
Act that gave to this province the right
of retaining its own customs laws until
after the completion of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, secured the voluntary
abandonment of that privilege by the
Provincial Legislature, and fleeced the
people by adopting the Dominion
Tariff. Over one half of the Legislative
body represents Victoria's interests, and
the bulk of the provincial revenue is
spent there. The Colonist brayed loud
and long in favour of the Settlement
Act, the greatest and most inexcusable
monopoly ever created by the Provincial
Legislature, and now when it looks-forward to the impending fate of it's party
it crys out against monopolies, because
a few gas and water companies have
secured limited privileges as security for
thc investment of capital. Verily for an
organ sadly out of practice it pbads
most eloquently for the generations
unborn,
But we had not finished our story,
On reaching town "Bill* the Devil"
made so much capital out of his little
joke, that Tom hunted him up with a
Spencer rifle and eventually fired two
bullets through his heart and killed
him.
That's about what the poor may expect as the aftermath of the Colonist's
wails against monopoly. When a man,
even metaphorically, has a revolver at
his ear he is apt to perform strange
antics and express opinions so much at
variance with his previous record that
nobody can believe him to be sincere.

As we predicted at the time, the
election of Mayor Rate has anaugurated
an era of jobbery. It is proposed to
borrow $10,000. What for? To construct water-works, build docks and
markets, or to make any investment
that will yield the city a revenue ? No—
to improve streets that are not in immediate need of improvement and to
build tanks that will never be used.
The proposed expenditure is judiciously
scattered over the town in the expectation that all quarters will be satisfied,
because of a little expenditure in each
locality. Underlying the proposition
to borrow money at this inauspicious
season is the fact that an election is
[lending for the representation of this
district in the Victoria Legislature and
the money, if borrowed, would be used
undoubtedly to promote the election of
Bate. Councillors Webb and Knight,
animated by disinterested motives, opposed the proposed bylaw. There is
no reason why the next civic election
should not "be made the occasion of
feeling the public pulse on the question
of incurring a heavy debt for a doubtful purpose. At present an attempt to
saddle upon the city expenditures that
are usually made out of current revenue
and for which there exists no pressing
necessity, bears such a sinister interpretation that the question should never
be allowed to go to the people, but be
killed in the Council chamber, where
Boss Tweedism will soon become rampant if Councillors Webb and Knight are
outvoted on this question. If money
is required for a legitimate purpose
there will be time enough to borrow it
when the Provincial elections are over,

SATURDAY April 3, iSii6;
AMONG THE PEOPLE OF ICELAND.
the Natives Derated to (Suuff Mid strong
Drink—Lack of Cleanliness—Names.
Vcritli, tliejer siler—May yon be blessed.
Upon entering or leaving a store or house,
parting with a friend, or meeting an entire
mranger on the road, this sentiment is
always expressed. The national salutation is a kiss all round, friends and
strangers alike, and in the country the
custom is still followed, but like many
other time-honored practices handed
down from the days when Iceland, in
several and great respects, was leading
the world, this habit is fast disappearing
at the capital. It is the rule of the road
never to pass a person without a salutation, and in traveling one sees many
affectionate greetings between the people,
who, although very cordial to foreigners,
have ceased, within the last few years, to
extend their demonstrations toward them
beyond the proffer of the snuff horn or
brandy bottle, or perhaps a piece of rock
candy or a few raisins they may have in
the recesses of their pockets.
To see horny visaged men, often without
dismounting from their ponies, earnestly
embrace aud kiss one another as affectionately as two parroquetts, strikes the
stranger ay decidedly Icelandic; especially
when, as in almost every case their upper
lips are crossed by two very prominent
dark streaks, the result of the frequent
nse of snuff, After bussing each other in
good round style, one of them produces a
small horn, from which he empties at
least a spoonful into his own large
nostrils, and then passes It round, generally following It up with a small keg
unstrapped from behind the saddle, or a
bottle brought forth from Hie depths of 1111
old stocking. Owing to the isolated lives
they lead, the country people improve
•very opportunity to chat witli those they
meet, nnd after some time spent iu the
exchange of news and friendship's little
commodities, they again embrace, patch
their ponies, who have been allowed to
stray, and once more take the road,
SNUFF AND ALCOHOL.
The ability of the average Icelander to
appropriate snuff is rarely equaled. Somewhere I have read of a Queen Charlotte,
who, in accordance witli the grace with
which she diil all things, and for which
she was greatly envied by the ladies of
her court, was in the hnblt of laying a
train of snuff down the whole length of
her white satin sleeve, and then with one
sweep of her queenly nose, she would
secure every particle. A few of these people empty a small mountain of the powder
upon the back of the hand and transfer It
to the nose, but the way is to apply the
end of the snuff horn directly to the nostril, throw the head far back and by a
shake of the horn, and "a long pull and a
strong pull," obtain the desired quantity,
of course treating the other nostril in the
same wny. It is needless to say that they
enjoy the operation and that the removal
of external traces is considered entirely
unnecessary.
As for the drinking habit, it will be met
with everywhere, 6ut here It is certainly a
great and universal obstacle to the advancement of the people. Every opportunity is improved to get "half seas over,"
and it is no uncommon thing to see a
farmer hobnobbing with some chance acquaintance, in the shadow of a rock, while
his pack-ponies, loaded with the wares for
which he has bartered his year's produce,
are scattered far along or straying from
the road, and his riding-pony stands
sleepily by, apparently understanding the
situation. The Icelanders are seldom
ugly or quarrelsome, nor can their time
be reckoned as valuable, but the fact that
not the least proportion of their scanty
produce goes for drink and that, they often
lose in other ways through this habit,
would, under other circumstances, condemn the custom upon grounds of
economy and thrift.
HOUSEHOLD HABITS..
In personal and household habits, these
people are emphatically not clean, and
culinary untidiness,together with entomological discomforts are not the least Inconveniences of Icelandic travel. As regards wearing apparel, many of the people seem to have adopted the principle of
the man who, every Saturday night-,
flung his socks against the wall. If they
stuck they were washed, otherwise they
were good for another week. In towns,
too, one every day sees practices that in
almost any other country would cause the
offenders to be fined at tho hands of the
law. But iu regarding all this, great allowance must be made for the isolation of
their country, and causes resulting from
no fault of their own play an important
part in the present condition of (he people.
Personal nomenclature here is still In
Its primitive stages. Only one name Is
given to a child and that's all he ever
gets. A boy or man is simply Jon or
Olafur and further distinction is obtained
by asking "whose son are you!'" In writing, the father's name is added, as. Jon
Sigurd's son, or Olafur Eythor'ssOn, It
will be sceu, however, that there is no
family name and that it is very difficult to
trace one's ancestors if the genealogical
thread is once lost. The son of Sigmun-
dnr is Ausgeir .Sigmundtirson; his i>oy is,
perhaps, Gioli Ausgoirsson and in the
next generation we duel Thorsteiu ■
Giolisson, or as the name of the
father is • sometimes transposed and .
given to the eldest son, we may have
in this case Ausgeir Gielissoii. The girls
are Kagnhilda Pietturs Dottur or Thor-
halla tfeli.xdottur and arc so known
through life,-only rarely discarding the
national custom and taking the name of i
their husbands, which act, clearly enough,
would make them somebody's son.—
Keykjavik Cor. Atlanta Constitution,
Country Hoys for Reporters.
A writer in The Pittsburg Dispatch,
noting the fact that a large proportion of
the good newspaper reporters of the day
arc from country towns, says: "Ono
llilng that is in favor of the country boy

to a specified number of tons per annum for
a period of years. We have on our table a
sample of ore which the City Analyst of
(ilasgow pronounces exceedingly rich—capable
of yielding a ton of steel fir every 2600 lbs
of ore. This ore is found on Vancouver Island. We have earnestly and incessantly
sought to impress' he people of Nanaimo
with the importance of this business to this
particular district, and congratulate the government on the move made in the matter
