NEW ADVERTISEMENTS
An inquest was held at Wellington
on Monday, 31st of May, concerning
the death of Anne Embleton. The
evidence went to show that death had
resulted from puerperal peritonitis, and
that the unfortunate woman had recently miscarried. The jury returned a
verdict in accordance with the facts. | be principally Farmers

An' all the time durin' the preachin',  J

Do you think as they'll waltz inter glory,
Bscause they're mixed with the flock:
Not much! They'll get left on the margin
For Christ will go down to bedrock.

An' yet from his sideboard imbibe.
If he does evry day to his neighbor |9
Ai he'd have that same neighbor to do,
Won't he fare jest as well at the clean-up
As if worth a million ar two?
The churches are good institutions;
I like to hear good preachers tell
'Bout Christ and the good of religion,
But they ought ter preach temperence

An' a man as drinks don't always  win,
'Cause he never kin keep himself level,
Since rum is a cuss and a sin.
—Captain Jack Crawford.
Mr. J. W. Stirtan, has returned from
a trip to his old home in Eastern Ontario. He was astonished at the progress the country had made during his
absence, and at the astonishing prosperity of every section he visited.
Wages there are quite as high as here
and employment steady. He visited
and examined the waterworks of Chicago, Hamilton and Toronto, and at
the establishment of Alex. Gartshore,
Hamilton, saw water pipes cast and
tested by hydraulic pressure to 30otbs
to the square inch. The weateer was
warm and vegetation progressing rapiel-
ly. Much injury has been done this
Province by locking out capital that
would have been employed in developing our mineral resources. The Eastern capitalists say, "Why we would
like ta go to British Columbia, but you
have shut us out. The immigrants
who  will come here from Canada  will
We do not consider it in the interest
of the public morals to go into details
in this matter. The whole affair has
been unfortunate, and in some of its
features repulsive. Mr. Scott the
father of the deceased is pushing a case
against Embleton as an accessory to
the offense inasmuch as he is accused
of having aided his wife to procure the
means of bringing on an abortion that
resulted fatally. Familiarity with the
details of such cases leads, v,e believe,
to their increased frequencey and can
not make interesting or elevating literati ra for those to whom this journal
principally addresses itself.
We believe they will not be altogether
pleased with the Province, but as a
means to an end, we say to them
Westward Ho!
The more Canadians we have in
British Columbia, and the quicker they
come the sooner will Crocker and Stanford and their acolytes ceas.emonopol-
ize the country, and imr.ose the yoke
of semi-slavery upon us.

The Victoria Colonist, annexationist
admits the utter collapse of Dunsmuir's
hired Government. Crocker and Stanford are being levied upon to sustain
Smithe. Large quantities of whiskey
have been shipped into John Robtons

rCbkarjto Trlbiina.J
It goes without laying In thlt philosophical age that a man's comfort doea
not increase in the same ratio at bla
wealth, or diminish in proportion ae his
purse is depleted in those oases where the
individual beoomos poorer. It needs no
argument to prove that the possession of
an income of $10,000 a year is far from
yielding ten timet as much comfort aa
does tne annual stipend of $1,000. It
is not true, aa some have asserted, that augmented possibilities
of spending bring no increase of enjoyment to the average man. unless in
those rare cases where the Individual has
already so much that more is simply an
addition to a burden. An augment of 10
per oent. of tbe income of a workingman
puts it within bla power to add materially to tbe comfort of his home; and the
fact that such a change in condition
would involve dissipation in many instances is no proof that the argument is
an unsound one. It simply snows the
weak side of human nature, which is apt
to become unbalanced by a sudden
change, whether for good or for evil
IN  MATHEMATICAL   FORM,
Very probably, however, it has not eo<
curred to the reader to think it possible
that there Is a well-defined correlation of
wealth with comfort, in the comparative
sense of the terms; still less that the rela-
tion between the two Is capable of being
reduced to a mathematical form, as one
can represent the ratio of two numbers by
forming them Into a fraction. The announcement of the idea and that there is
such a connection would probably provoke a laugh
And yet, at the risk of exciting ridicule,
we venture the intimation that it may be
expressed by reference to a logarithmic
scale in this way: "Tbe comfort derivable varies as the logarithm of the number
of dollars per week that forms the income." Whether or not the formula
holds good for any particular cue depends
chiefly on the temperament of the Individual; but to some extent also on his
surroundings past and present. The relation referred to will be understood by
the non-mathematical reader on a glance
at the following little table, giving tbe
first few numbers that can be represented
by a logarith  which does not include a
decimal
Number. Logarithm,

100 3
1,000 4

100,000 5
,1,000,000 S
A FURTHER COMPARISON.
If we accept this as the correct ratio
we shall conclude that a multiplication
of an income of $10 by ten only doubles
1 the enjoyment of the possessor. And a
little reflection will show that this is approximately the ease. It is not meant by
this that to cut down a man's salary from
$100 to $10 per week would only cut his
comfort in two equal halves, of which he
retain one. He must be indeed a philosopher who could bear such a revulsion
without loas of more than half his
happiness.
But as between two men who have
been respectively educated to the ways of
life that befit these two sums tbe proposition holds good. Choice food, champagne, and fine cigars are enjoyed with
very little more relish by the man who is
accustomed to them than are the plain
food, the pipe of tobacco, and the glass
of beer which are at the service of the
poorer individual The fine house and
costly apparel of the well-to-do merchant scareelv yield him twice as much
comfort as do the modest apartments
and the coarser clothing of the mechanic,
while the inillionare who spends scores
of thousands of dollars per year on fast
horso or a yacht derives very little more
solid comfort therefrom than the day-
worker may feel in a ride on the cars
after his daily toil is over.
If to this we add the consideration that
tbe amount of care increases with tho
worldly possessions in every case except
that the truly miserable being with whom
pleasure Is the sole object of existence,
the account will be still less favorable to
the man who Is in receipt of the largest
income.     ___________
Not a Pleaaant Sight,
rchlcaifo Journal. 1
The sight of a man 0*0 feet from the
ground, hanging on to a monument by a
single rope, is not a pleasant one to persons with weak nerves, and yet tt Is presented every day at the Washington monument in Washington, where men are
engaged In placing numerous lightning
rods. It will take s long time, probably
a couple of months, to complete it
Though it looks to be a very dangerous
I work. It Is, in fact, a safe work.
The history of the  monument is  that
not one man  has been  injured.   There
hare  been  several accidents,  but  they
j have been on tbe ground.   Of course, if
I tbe rope by which the workmen are kept
danginsr  in the air  should break,   there
would be but a few minutes between their
here and  their  hjreafter.   They are  so
1 high that without a good glass a man can
; not be dlstinguised from a big valise.
Gentlemen s—- Having received the
nomination as the Workingmens' Candidates, we come before you hoping
that we will receive your support in the
coming general election for members
to represent your interest in the Pro- j
vincial legislature, and we trust that'
our principals and honesty of purpose
is well known to the great majority of
the people of Nanaimo City and
District. We believe in, and will support, a law for the enforcement of the
resignation of any member whose conduct is not strictly in accordance with
the pledges given to his constituents,
when shown to be dissatisfied and unsatisfactory to the majority of those
whom he represents.
We will now preeent for your consideration the following principals:
That we will adopt and support if
given your confidence, and we do not
doubt that justice will prevail In time.
It is now in the Interest of all who are
suffering from injustice to endeavour
to hasten the day, when justice shall be
practicable.
The land of a country is Nature trust
to all its people.the producers create all
wealth by labour from the land and
waters, and all men should have a
share in Nature's resources,
The opposition to all laws under
which public land now passes into the
hands of corporations, the most of it
by fraud.
The forfeiture of ail unearned land
grants to individuals and corporations.
The prohibition of the possession of
land to foreigners and non-residents.
Passing of a law defining the amount
of land to be acquired or held by any
one citizen, by gift, purchase or inheritance.
Protection to the workingmen from
competition with imported cheap
labour contracts,Chinese labour, and
convict prison labour.
The enactment of such laws as will
give to mechanics and labonrers not
only a first lien on their work for full
wages, but also the legal rignt to collect
the said wages without any cost to them
whatsoever in the courts or elsewhere.
The establishing of an Arbitration
Board to settle disputes between employees and employers, and render
strikes unnecessary.
temperanci. The regulation of the
liquor traffic should be directly in the
hands of the people.
The establishing of a> Provincial
University where all can receive a free
education.
That all jurors be paid for their time
and expenses.
The repeal of all professional and
other monopolies that exist in our Pro
vincial statutes.
We are not in favour of the present
Government or any Other Government
that would give away thc public lands,
and grant monopolies to the peoples'
rights, all important laws should be
referred to the people, viz., Land
money, commerce, public improvement and foreign relations.
The enactments of such laws as will
afford a more speedy, effectual, and
inexpensive remedy for employers who
may have reasonable claims for damages against persons or corporations.
We will use our best endeavours to encourage all honest industries, and promote the interest of capital and labour,
so that they may work harmoniously to
develope the resources of the Province.
The above is respectfully submitted
to the Electors of Naanimo Electoral
District.
We are Gentlemen,
Your obedient servants,

not slow to exchange  tl       i havisti d
fishing ground ol Europe  for the pro-!
liiic banks of. New Foundland-and the j
Gulf of St. Lawrence.
And here another element was introduced jactuated ii is churl? ably supposed
by thc  best of motives tbe zealous ies-
i
tilts  accepted to  the challenge that
Carrier discovery  disclosed and made'
v/sr upon ihc heathens armed with the
1 , i
Cross alone'—For a time however colonization languished and Canada was
almost forgotten,
Samuel de Champlain was the next|
Frenchman who attempted to found-a
colony in the country drained by the
St. Lawrence. He was the airiest of
them all—a man cf genius, of lofty
impulses, gentle and resolute, cautious
and courageous, a thorough gentleman
and a profound Christian, a friend of
one of the ablest Kings of France,
Henry tv. Champlain was the founder
of Canada. For thirty years he struggled
against overwhelming difficulties to establish a permanent colony in a land
he had learned to love with a fervour
tbnt death alone extinguished. War
from without strife within, Christanlty
at logger-heads, cupidity, vice. Ingratitude he met on every hand, he corn-
batted at every point, and at last, sank
beneath the cares such < onatant vigil-
ence entailed; and died without having!
seen the greatness for which he had
prepared the way.Occasionaly like fitful |
gleams of sunshine on a cloudy day,
men like Champlain have arisen and
illuminated the world with their individuality; somewhat fanatic, truthful,
earnest, determined, hoping against
hope, relying upon the sublimity of
their faith and principles alone, they
make the acceptance of civilization by
barbaroui nations easier of accomplishment, but tls*y jeiinrtiiJy sacrifice their
own lives in the effort to expand the
realms of'truth, liberty and humanity
Such another was Gordon. The history of Europe and particulary tneI
history of France during the reign of
Henry tv had much to do to determine
thc history of Canada under Champlain
and his successors. The Reformation
had made such progress in France
that one-half its inhabitans were protectants. A constant guerilla war-fare
was kept up. A feudal Lord with a
few retainers could render the King and
Christ no better service than
to slaughter a congregation of protestants
and burn their place of meeting. The
parliamentary gatherings became the
arena of religious discussion but however much worldlinessmay have underlain the religious zeal of those days
there were not wanting zealots who
believed so absolutely in their dogmas
thr.t they were ready to undertake tht
most extraordinary missions to advance
thc caaae of Christ as understood by
them. Paris teemed with mercenary
assassins and poisoners, disputes were
settled by bloody personals encounters
a Voutrance.
"All die common tense of England, more
abundant i-i those than now, Ml 'hat die war
had ii. i been foughl out, aifd the way to
the Inp of pence c mid only be aron hy
vigorous use of the amis, Some few there
were even then, as now there is a cackling
multitude, besotted enough to believe thai
facts can bo undone by blinking them, But
our forefathers on the whole were wise, and
knew that nothing is trampled on more basely that right will not righl itself. Therefore
they set their faces hard and toughened their
hearts like Knotted oaks, against all thai men
could do to them. There were no magnificent 'proclamations,!™ hie vaunts <:■   victory

Young man said the leviathan, go

coffee. Oh go home was the reply
he received, don't bother about your

bleeding staunched, young man said he I,am
