miners, lumbermen,  mechanics  and  other
-classes, should be taxed in>order to support
them in a struggle against nature.   On other
���  articles of agricultural produce, irrespective
:^>f flour and wheat, the difference,of duty
A -would be about $6000, and we should like to
, know it this-reduction would be so disastrous
sis to necessitate the payment to Canada of
t. h ree ti m os th e. am pu n t an n u al I y whic h wo ul d
be taken off farming produce of all descriptions'. ;'.
'Our contemporary goes on to. say::
" If wo {ro in for free trade it will not do to
���stop at farming produce���^jt must be extended
to every lbranch of* trade.   Where then would
he our brewers, distillers, wagon and farming
Implement makers, and a number of other
industries that only exist by the imposition
of duties on such articles as are manufactured
by them?'"
This we call pure and unadulterated non-
��ense. If such trades exist only by duties
^ x to r ted fro m the oommnm ty a fc 1 a rge. Hi e
;s.��onor their existence terminates the better.
But let us look at the-question in a critical
manner and see how it wilt stand .impartial
��cm tiny. First take the brewers. Ale and
^>ort��r under the Canadian Tariff pay a duty
d u ty of 5 cen ts p erv gal Ion i h woo d a n d 7
���sents per gallon in bottle. This would make
no great reduction on our present,rates; and
as it appears that in Bpite of prdtectipn;these
same brewers aro now compelled to import
oyer halt, a million pounds of barley, oh
whi ch they would save ab ou t $ 1300, i t is h ard
to see: how "they would be muclj^ injured^
Next, the,distil (ers. They .would shard in the
benefits to be.derived, frem cheaper barley,
though.certainly the reduction of tho duty
oh spirits might work badly for thein ; their
choice brands of cognac a��d other ''foreign"
liquors which they now manufacture might
not fetch; as good a price as now, but we
question much if it.is advisable to pay away
$35,000 a year for the protectiou: of this
description of home manufacture. Then we
are told wagon .and forming implement
makers would be ruined. How is this ? Agricultural im pi erne n ts un d er the. B ri tish C ol ii m -
bia Tariff were admitted free I aud yet we are
gravely told that the abrogation of that Tariff
would ruin their manufacturers. Here is
consistency in argument;���the.farmers would
be Crushed by the reduction of duties and
the |implement makers by their increase!
Wagon materials were also imported free, on
some portions of which duty would hereafter
be chargeable. Their total value for the last
ypar amounted, however, to only $3178.
Wagons which under the old rates paid 20
per cent, would under the new pay 15 ; and
what do the imports amount to ?   In 1870 to
no less than 15 carriages and wagons of all;
descriptions, paying the enormous duty of
$719. <m which there would be a reduction
of. $ 18.1 ,.s which would, we are. asked, to he-
lie ve, dri ye tlie en terprising wagon makers
out of the proyinceV What the...number of
other industries are that exist only through
duties we are at a loss .to make out., ., ;
:The,-farmers,:we are> next toldj;^ by.the: assistance of protection; are enabled to eliminate immense sums fro nv the soil,Which go to

4 ney i tabl ybe ���: mat er ial! y , r edn ced ;i n 0 b nse-
(\uence of the absehce of the means to work
them." .This;isa'most too ridiculous to need
comment, b\\t we dp ���. itotywhhio allow the
false impression to be engendered in the
minds of parties abroad which might be cre-
��� ated by reading ine above���namely. that the
farmers stipport the mines or contribute towards their development. We should like fo
know what they have spent in .prospecting
Cariboo?. No ;.to the energy of the miners
alone., who explored the. mountains before we
had anv farm* in (he country. inusfc be given
���the;credit of what has hitherto been done in
th is d i rec tion. The; farm ers fl n d i ri ga- profitable market for their-prodnce followed in the
miners" footsteps : they exist upon the miners,
and not the miners upon them,
/Now let us look at the gloomy picture of
desolation  which our contemporary draws.
The reduction of the present Tariff, he foretells; would be;" immediately fol lowed by the
e xeid u s to the sh o res of the a'dj oi n i ri g re public
of all the bone and sinew now so bravely employed in crea(ing smi 1 i ng farma from our
forests and prairies.    That any intelligent
man should recommend such a suicidal policy
as that of abrogating ihe present moderate (!)
Tariff even for any temporary  advantage,
pecuniarily or politically, isalmost incredible.
It may be that ruin to the thmighlless opponents of our own "Tariff would not be the immediate result, but it must ultimately revert
upon them; and although they might enjoy a
momentary satisfaction at'the thought of the
triumph these enemies to the country would
achieve, it must terminate as the fall of the
temple  did  with  Sampson, in  their own
Alas! alas! if there be any truth in the
above rhapsody the Guardian's own days
must be numbered.
"The smisKof'life impnrts-rnysMcfd loro,
And coming events east their sliadowa before "
Farewell, poor bone and sinew! By all
means, now that the citizens of the "United
States are groaning under excessive taxation,
and many of them fleeing from their burdens
and ranging themselves under our protecting
British banner, by all means leave this province because.our taxation is about to be reduced, and fly to a more congenial clime
where yon can indulge in tho luxury of having
your pockets drained legally or illegally to
in* fullest extent. Yon have our sympathy,
but we fear that there are not enough " infel-
Guardian dreads, even with the awful vision
before ^heir eyes of the tottering fabric of
bur Provincial Temple, threatening to overwhelm: the sacrilegious; innovators who dare
to advocate retrenchment and free trade.

Jack -co , 'oi''. give a mortgage on the same.
In the,summer of '69 a bi11 6f sa 1 e wits given
to defendant by, Henderson and F. Neufelder,
defend ah I to /work" th e grou nd, an d a fter. ��� re-
reiving certain wages, to.pay $125 to Henderson and $250 to Neufelder, together with
j>11 book debts due the latter, before acquir-
jiig a clear tille to the claim. The deed was
n �� v er reco rded by de fe n d a u t, who has, sin ce
���recorded the ground in his own name.
Mr Park, counsel for plaintiff, argued, that
the defendant being merely a trustee, was
compelled to render an account of the receipts of the claim, as-well as to record the
de*d. He proved that he had applied to de-
vfendnnt on several occasions for an account,
and also for the production of the deed;; he
��aid he .could tipt find it���either that Mr Lai-
jierhad it or that it was lost; he4-id.not give
any correct account of bis days' work or now
=the matter stood ^Henderson, 'foreman of the
company, gave nn account of what money
defendant had drawn; after repeated applications defendant positively refused to produce the deed and denied having it in his
.Mr Walkem, counsel for defendant, stated
���that defendant had gone to Mr Neufelder last
year to ask for provisions, as the claim had
not paid him anything, otherwise he would
be compelled to abandon the claim. Mr Neufelder advanced.$40 more ot provisions, and
afterwards declined to give any more, as he
���did not think the.grownd would pay,-by which
he-virtually Accepted the abandonment of the
trust and rescinded the agreement, on  tbe
��� strength of which Mr Lailier supp'-lied defend
ant wilh provisions.   He argued that defendant had given notice of abandonment in ac
��� cordance with the deed. Plaintiff should
have Imd the deed drawn In duplicate and
recorded at his own expense, or it .he wished
��� defendant to record it lie should have  tendered him the recording fee.
Mr Neufelder denied that he badever abandon ed o r in t e nd ed to ab a n d o n  the sec u vi ty ;
he had given defendant provisions in  18G9-
.70 to the amount of $400,  but refused him
more fit. winter-;  in spring of ;1870 let him
ihave $40 worth, after which he refused to
give any more ; had a conversation with Mr
Lailier about the matt��r,bnt could not recollect the exact particulars:  might have said
that he had -no confidence in the ground and
thought it better to lose what he had spent
than spend more on it, but never said that he
.abandoned or ga\*e up tho claim; when he
' gave the last provisions to Gallen did not

have the claim; he then said he would give
me no more credit so I might take the claim
and do the> best I could, as he would have
nothing more to do with it; he gave me no
receipt or discharge;  Mr Lailier has since
given me supplies on credit, without which I
should have had to abandon the claim ; have
always intended to pay Mr Neufelder when
ab 1 e;  k n o w th at Mr Ro b er tsoa ad v ised Mr
Lailier not to produce the deeds. ':
F. Lai lief itestified that J* Henderson, foreman o f B1 ack Jac k co., to Id ' film Neu fe 1 d e r
would give Gall en no more provisions ; went
to Neufelder and had a conversation ; told
him I thought he bad better continue; he said
ho though he bad better give,uni;this sort of

Fire.���On Monday morning, about five
o'clock, an alarm of fire was given; ��� The fire
bell was immediately rungy and the Brigade
turned out in quick time,'and" a bright- "blaze
being seen above.. Barkervi11 e the hose was
run out to "the uppef erid of town. The hooks
and b n eke is we re t hen h w r r led \\ p X h e road
to the building on fire, which proved to be a
log cabin a little below the month of Stout's
gulch, belonging to -Patrick McCobe, who is
at }) resen t i n O m i ne ca. Wh e n the Brigad e
reached the spot the fire had gained too much
headway to permit of saving tbe- house.
Th ere were, h o we ve r .*-_ two b o uses im med i:
ately below, one of which had already caught
fi re, a n d to sa ve the m a tte n t io n was i in me d i-
ately directed. A line having been formed
to the creek, buckets were passed iby the firemen and volunteers, and the fire in the second
house extinguished in a few minutes. The
hooks were then brought into requisition,
an d the bn rn ing h o u se, wh i ch was verye ko ng
and solid, torn down. The origin of. the fire
is a myBtery, as no person has been living in
the house lately, and Mr-McCabe's brother
1 ast week ha d boarded up��� the wi ndow to keep
out intruders. This musthave been broken
open by some one, probably wUb the ^object
of robbery, and the house then set fire to
either intentionally or by accident.
Cariboo Vegetables.���There is a prevalent
���idea in the lower country that the mountains
of Cariboo are too sterile to produce anything
but fir timber and gold. Experience, however, shows that with a little trouble the hill
sides can be made to produce most sorts of
hardyYvegetables, such as turnips, lettuces,
radishes, <&c., which do not require a long
season, and are not easily injured by summer
fr ost s. W e saw th is week as p 1 e n d i d w h i te
turnip, weighing over 7h lbs., from .'the garden of Mr George Dakin. between Barkerville
and Cameronton. -It was perfectly solid and
firm, and having tasted it when cooked we
can safely say that.it was of excellent quality.
This was* not a solitary specimen either. ;a
large quantity having been grown in a very
small space of ground,    y y
The RAif.noAi> Exploration*���Two of Mr
M ah oo d*s surveying party arrived here this
week for the purpose of driving out the winter's supply of -cattle. They-report-the party
when they left making good headway along
Swamp river and the nature of the country
improving, the timber, which is principally
hemlock and maple, being much less dense.
They are now probably across the divide.

Accident on the Roir^Qn Sunday afternoon, us IIarry Wi Impt; and- Johii Baker were
on their wayto.'pnrkerviUeJwilii freight from
Quesnelmouth in four-horse teams.?when about
the summit, five miles from Richfield, Wiimot

broke a wa y, and r ti n h i rig down ffi e: h i 11 cam e
in contact with Bakers team, which was
ahead< _' and frigbtehed the horses, -which
started off at full speed through the canyon
and at last ��� went over a steep pitch, ^yagon
and��� all,'-��� into;.; the ravine alongside the road.
Strange to say, the horses were got out uninjured, and the only damage done to the wagon
was that the. pole was broken, though from
the nature of the .capsize it might have been
expected that the horses would have been
kill ed and the' wa go n sin ash e d tp p i e c es. The.
load, which consisted of vegetables, was
brought to town next day in good order.  '.
X.T TriK Tkail to Lowhee.���The residents of
Lowhee creek .complain seriously about the
condition of the trail from BarkerVille. Late
last year,"on the..fecommendation ��� of the
Grand Jury, a new trail was: made -to jthat
creek', wh ich " du ring :the��� wi nter was a great

Encouraging.���An interest in the Two Sis-
te.ra* company, on. Jack of Clubs creek, the
property of a party who was obliged to leave
some time since for California,, was sold by
auction this week for $425. Considering that
this is only a prospecting claim, which has
not yet struck bedrock, and that there were
also'assessments due, this shows a confidence
in the creek which webope is not misplaced.
Road Sltdr���The heavy rain on Wednesday
night brought down a great deal of water
from the bill, side bh the road through the
canyon, and a port'nn of the cribbing "having
given way oyer forty feet of the. road slid
