' Wh en \ t is borne Jn mi n di ho w bit-  ��������� terlvand unreasonably these persons opposed  -the Local Government", and how they hounded  after Mr DeCosraos. circulating broadcast over  the country the most wilful falsehoods about  Jhem. because they dared to propose a scheme  by which to raise a large sura of money to  construct a graving.dock, at Esqnimalt and  build roads and bridges .throughoutthe coun-  t *y. is it any wonder that people are somewhat perplexed at the present attitude of the  gentlemen who now clamor so lustily for, a  relaxation of the Terms, and ask each;other  on the street what has come over the spirit of  their dream to induce them so suddenly to  ohange their minds in relation to a modification of the Terms of Union ?   Neither Mr De  Cosmos  nor  the  Local -Government  ever  dreamed cf such a thinj? as to permit any  alteration \n the Terms of Union that would  relieve the Dominion Government of the responsibility it had incurred in relation to the  Diillding of the/railway, their only dbjectie-  ing so to modify clauses; two and /twelve of  the Terms as to enable tbe Government of  tjie Ppmipion .to .advance ths money sought  to be obtained for graying dock an X other  purposes..  But in the face/of the most positive assurance to that effectj' the obstructive  clique, both in the House and out. of it, resorted to every artifice whiph their ingenuity  could suggest to defeat them, and to every  falsehood that their fertileimagin anions could  .invent ioprejudjice the popular mind against  tbe Goyf^nnient 6^mc^/1^^/^i?^nd.i;Y6rer  most of which w^^'^7^Uog^''!&Bit<tte  agreement witji .Mr Mackenzie to. relax the  railway clause of the .Terms, upon the faithful  performance pf which the very existence 6j  Bri to Columbia depended.. Now tfyese. very  same men, who in February;last hesought the  people,"w!th crocodile tears drippling /from  the tips of their patriotio noses, to resist the  faintest attempt on the part of the Government, to" relax the Terras of Union, and who  even : went * so far as to lead a mob in to the  House of Assembly with a view to overawe  the people's  representatives while  in  the  faithful "discharge of their'duties," are screaming themselves hoarse, for a relaxation of.the  Terras, and tbeir organ is engaged in daily  denunciations;of the Government because  they have, as It alleges, refused, to entertain  a proposition of Mr Mackenzie's, having ttiat,  object ��������� in view.;" Only a;few days[ago these]  men (formed themselves into what they were  pleased to call a a Terms of Union Preservation Lea^uo,^. and took as/their shiubblfth  *������ the Terms, the whole Terms, aud nothing  but.tte Terms,���������* and scattered.circulars broad?  cast over.the country inviting every man and  his wi fe to j oin it,: and ..by a united effort save  lhe country  from   impending ruin, which/  would ensue if the. Government were permitted to relax the Terras in the-slightest particular.   Why tliis Sudden backing, down and;  complete ignoring of the /objects/ 'for / which  the '"Terms of.

Tbe terms of contracts; bad .been changed between tihies- of  advertisingTor and letting ibe same, and how  the carriage of jjbM dust;and bullion had  been stopped, which bad caused great dissatisfaction in Cariboo, where gold dust .was  tbe staple product. When gold was carried  by mail, the Banks paid a higher price for it  than they could afford to do now '% they insured all treasure* forwarded by mail, while  the Government was not responsible for its  safe delivery.      Mr Thompson then read a resolution passed  at a public meeting held at Barkerville on  27ib March, strongly condemning the action  of the Post Office authorities on the grounds  that tbe course adopted would cause a loss to  Cariboo of; $15,000 per annum, and to the  revenue of $4000 per annum.  ���������  MR\.
