A Minor Misunderstanding With the Khedive 
Causes Talks of Impending War. 

London, Jan. 25. — It was reported this 
afternoon that tho Duko of Connaught, com- 
mander at Alderahot, had received orders to 
preparo to diapatch u body of troops to Egypt. 
Tho report wos without foundation in fact. 
Tho Duko of Connaught was out all day 
with tho troops on a divisional route march. 
II any men bo aont to Egypt they will bo 
merely drafts to fill the vacancies left by 
changes in tho Britise forces in Egypt. Th» 
English and French dailies which' comment 
on the Khedive's behavior agree, with few 
exceptions, that tho Khedive's recent criti- 
cisms of British military drill in Egypt have 
no international import. Mr. Lubouehere's 
Egyptian, published in Cairo, says that the 
matter was not of a sorious nature and has 
been satisfactorily arranged. Tho Khedivo 
apologized to General Kitchener, of the 
Egyptian war department, and bosought 
him to rotuin his post. General Kitchener 
consented to remain in office. 

Lord Roacbory, secretary of state for 
foreign affairs, deems this apology insuffi- 
cient, and has directed L-ird Cromer, tho 
British diplomatic agent at Cairo, to demand 
that tho Khedive publish a formal retrac 
tion of his strictures on tho army, and issue 
an order pruising its conduct, and that he 
romovo Maher l'uaha, tho assistant minister 
of war, who iB charged with inciting the 
Khedive to make his hostile criti- 
cisms. Tho Marquis do Rovorseaux, 
French representative in Cairo, sup- 
ports Lord Cromer. Raizo I'usha, the 
Egyptian premier, will meet tho Khedive 
at Luxor, and there will draw up tho apology 
which is to bo published. Thero has been 
no hitch in Lord Rosebery'a programme, 
and thero is not likely to bo any, heuco tho 
mention of war or transportation of troops 
to Egypt is absurd. It is probable that 
only a handful of militia will go to protect 
foreigners in Cairo, where native riots might 
occur if tho Khedivo should not submit to 
Lord Cromer, un event far from likely. The 
general expectation is that he will sign at 
once the apology to be submitted to him at

The Civil Governor Shot by nn Anarchist, Who 
Was Promptly Arrested. 

Barcelona, Jan. 25. — Ramon Marrull, 
an anarchist workman, triod this afternoon 
to assassinuto R. Larroca, Civil Governor of 
Barcelona, Tho Governor loft tho prefec- 
ture as usual at 4 :.'i0 o'clock. Ho had en- 
tored his carriago and was giving orders to 
the footman, but, as tho footman was 
about to mount, Marrull puahod by 
him, drew a revolver, and thrusting 
in his arm (ired twico at tho Governor. 
The Governor was struck in tho loft arm by 
a bullet, but did not loso his presence of 
mind. Pushing open the door, hrt shouted 
to his coachman : " Arrest that scoundrel !" 
Tho few pedestrians on the street hurried to 
usnist tho driver, but before they reached 
him, tho coachman jumped from tho box, 
and, with tho help of a policeman, seized 
and disarmed his muster's assailant. Other 
policemen, who had been attracted by the 

hooting, took charge of tho man and locked 
him up. Ho gavo his namo us Macon, and con- 
fcsBod that he waa an anarchist. Hia object 

n shooting Senor Larroca, ho said, was to 
avengo Pallas, tho anarchist who wus shot 
for having tried to kill Generul Martinez 
do Campos. Later ho admitted that ho was 
Ramon Marruel, but refused to givo the 
name of tho man who was with him in front 
of tho Prefecture and ran away after the 
first shot. The Governor was taken into tho 
Prefecture and tho bullet waB extraotod from 
his jaw. His wound is not dangoroua. 
The nows of tho ahooting spread through- 
out tho city beforo dark and half tho popu- 
lation came out to discuss it. While tho 
general uneasiness was moat perceptible a 
tremendous report was heard in all parta of 
tho city. Tho harbor district was shaken 
as if by an earthquake. Muoh alarm was 
manifested by the peoplo as thoy supposed 
that the anarchists had blown up a public 

of tho Action for Divorce In the 
Courts of Franco. 

Paris, Jan. 25. — The hearing of tho action 
of tho Princeas Colonua against her husband 
for legal separation, began to-day, after 
soveral postponements. M. Dubuit, advo- 
cato for tho princeBa, was pleading in an- 
other court,' and M. Deveillo requested that 
a further postponement bo granted. M. 
Dcsjardines objected to any further delay, 
and tho court ordered that the case be pro- 
ceeded with. M. Desjardines said that tho 
children hud not been allowed to be tuken 
to seo Princo Colonna, despite the 
order of the court granting him 
privilego, on tho pretoxt that 


ho was living at a hotel. Is not tho Prin- 
cess, he aakeuV living at a hotel? Ho re- 
cited the history of the marriage, which 
took placo in February, ISS9. Tho wife's 
property, he said, formed a separato estate 
under her own control. This was according 
to Itulian law, but contrary to European 
custom. Mr. Mackay, the stepfather of tho 
PrinceBS, had not given her a dowery. Ho 
had aimply granted her an allowance. The 
illustrious family of Prince Colonna was 
not without fortune. The Princo had 
recently inherited a considerable sum of 
money from an uncle. 

M. Desjardines argued that the rights of 
foreigners huving domicilo in their own 
country were inalienable and could not bo 
attacked by the French courts. He dis- 
cussed tho plea of tho Princess that ainoo 
hia marriage tho Princo had lived in Puris, 
virtually abandoning Italy, and that, there- 
fore, tho action could be brought against 
him here. M. Desjardines quoted from tho 
official certificate issued in December lust to 
show that the PrinoeSB undoubtedly remains 
an Italian citizen. Tho registrar of tho 
Naples law courts had furnished tho do- 
feuco with a certificate showing that tho 
name of the Prince appears on the jury list 
and ho is a member of tho Naples military 
club. Tho census of tho department 
of tho Seine states that his domi- 
cile was in Naples. Thero were 
various deeds signed by tho Princess beforo 
notary public proving that his principal 
domicilo was in Naples, and that ho merely 
had a residence in Paris. 

(From our own Corroaoondont.) 

Ottawa, Jan. 25.— Mr. Craig, M. P., is 
hero in interest of tho peoplo of Port Hopo 
to induce tho Government not to establish a 
binder twine factory at tho Kingston Peni- 
tentiary. Ho was told that ho was too 
late, tho Department having sanctioned tho 
expenditure. Tho combino will shut down 
the factory at Port Hope, although there is 
enough demand to keep all the factories in 
Canada going. 

Jamos Huddart, managing owner of the 
Canadian-Australian Steamship lino, sailed 
from England for Canuda today. The 
object of his visit is understood to bo to 
discuss with ministers the trade prospects 
between Canada and Australia. He thinks 
the Government ahould do something in tho 
wuy of appointing commercial agents in tho 
principal citiea of Australia. Ho also 
desirea thut Canada bo officially represented 
at tho Tasmania Midsummer Exhibition, 
which opens atHobart in November next.

representative gathering hero to-night on

Tho Manufacture of Incandescent Lumps No 
Longer URestrlcted. 

New York, Jan. 25. — Judgo Ricks, of 
tho U. S. Circuit oourt in Ohio, has just 
rendered u docision in the suit of tho Edi- 
son electric light company against the Buck- 
oyo elcotriccompany, holding that tho Edison 
incandescent lamp pat ent expired on Novem- 
ber 10 of last year whon the English patent 
for tho sumo invention expired. ' Ho holds, 
in subatanco, that tho correction of tho 
patent made by tho patent office, at tho re- 
quest of tho EJison company, limiting tho 
American patout to tho term of tho Eng. 
lish patent, constituted a dedication to tho 
public of tho remainder of tho torm of the 
American patent afr.or tho Eaglish patent 
expired. Ho further holds that tho Edison 
onipnny is estopped by prncuring this cor- 
rection from claiming that tho American 
patent runs longer than tho English putent. 
Tho effect of this, it is said, ia to throw tho 
manufacture of incandeacont iampa open to 
tho publio.

(From tho Koalo-Slocan Examlnor.) 
Three proapeotore from Trout Lako have 
been in town this week endeavoring to ne- 
gotiate the sale of threo very good prospects. 
The specimens which they brought with 
them contain Bulphurets of Bilver of a rich 
character, some of it running to over §100 to 
tho ton. 

Some partieB just in from the north end 
of the lake report that a good gold prospect 
haa been struck in that vicinity. The rock 
shows iron pyrites and decomposed red 
quartz which, as everyone versed in mines 
knows, is a very sure indication that gold ia 
present in paying quantities. 


A Rich Company Formed of Western Men 
Who Havo Confidence In tho Country. 

(From tho Miner.) 

Carl Kloinschmidt, tho Montana capitalist 
who was through West Kootenay aomo 
months ago, haa returned after a trip to 
New York and the Pacific coast. 

Aa a result of thia trip a very wealthy 
company haa been organized to work in thi8 
section, the headquarters of which will be in 
Nelson. Tho title of tho company is 
the St. Mary's Mining and Develop- 
ment company, and its capital stock 
ia set at §1,000,000. Gen. Charles W. 
Turner, of Seattle, has been elected 
preaident, and Carl Kleinachmidt, vice- 
preaident and manager. A resident agent 
will bo appointed for Nelson, to bo chosen 
when operations are commenced. The new 
company will proceod to develop tho Badger 
claim on tho line between East and West 
Kootenay, a few miles north-east from Pilot 
Bay. A bond waa secured on this property 
las6 year by Kleinachmidt, which becume 
due and was taken up last month. The 
Badger carries gold, silver and copper, uud 
from several aBaaya which have been made, 
it ia expected to carry $H0 in gold, 35 ounces 
in silver and between aoven and eight per 
cent, copper. 

There are four or five locations adjourn- 
ing the Badger which the now company has 
acquired, as well aa aomo gold quartz 
properties on tho Salmon, tho worth of 
which the company will demonstrate. It is 
the intention of the company to get to work 
at once, and if it is found to be practicable 
grub will bo sent into tho Badger and men 
put to work tunnelling. Tho company will 
alBO havo fivo or six miles of road to build, 
or rather convert as many miles of trail into 
wagon road. 

Tho Salmon river placer properties held 
by Kloinschmidt will bo worked on a lurgo 
scale as soon as spring opens by a different which Kloinschmidt ia at tho 
head. Arrangements have been made for 
the putting in of a oaw mill to cut whp.t 
lumber ia required, and do what cuatom 
sawing may bo demanded. 

The group of quartz claims hold by Messrs. 
KleinBchmidt, Malloy, Gray und Roster a 
few miles out of Nelson, is not included in 
tho properties turned over to tho nowly 
organized properties, Theso will recoivo 
tho attention of tho ownors in the springy 
Micbaol Roator, who ia in thia syndicato, is 
a partnor of Kloinsohmidt, and holda stock 
in each of tho othor companies. His homo 
ia in Freebury, WiaconBiu.

Great Activity in Shipping Ore-Kaslo 
Becoming a More Active 

Civic Elections— Railway Bridge Con- 
struction — Supplies for Mining 
Camps -Fire Protection. 

Kaslo, Jan. 22.— (Special) — For several 
days last week tho sleigh road to tho mines 
v/vs blocked completely by a couplo of snow 
slides, whioh tho mild weather of tho week 
previous had brought down. Tho hauling 
of oro for shipment from this point was 
thorefore stopped for the time being, but ia 
now resumed with renewed energy. About 
forty tone por day are now arriving, and the 
ateamboata arc kept busy transporting it to 
Five Mile Point, where it ia loaded on 
board the Fort Sheppard Railwuy cars for 
transport to tho Bmoltors. 

Kaslo iB now a more active town in a 
buainesB way than it hia over been, and tho 
proBpocts for tho future are very bright. 
The merchanta, among whom aro a number 
of thoroughly live and entorpriaing firms, 
are getting thinga ahapod to clap on a lot of 
additional auil in the spring, in anticipation 
of a great Bummer'e buaincsa. Among tho 
new concorna about to bo 8tarted is a whole- 
sale and retail liquor houao. 

The civic elections resulted in something 
of a aurpriso, Mr. R. F. Groon having been 
defeated by Mr. Georee T. Kane, in the 
mayoralty contest, by a majority of eight. 
It waB cloao, but the Green party expected 
to come out with 50 to tho good, at leaat. 
Tho miatake was probably that they woro 
too confident. However, Mr. Kane, the 
new mayor, although without experience, is 
on energetic man, and the people, it ia satis- 
factory to see, now that tho fight is over, 
are disposed to turn in and work heartily in 
his support. 

Tho wrecked steamer Idaho is gradually 
boing got on to the ways. She ia not greatly 
damaced, and tho intention is to have her 
roady to go on the route again, between 
Kaslo and Uonnor's Ferry, aa 80on as tho ico 
breaks up in Kootenay river. 

Engineeer McMillan, of the Kaslo 
&. Slocan railway, took out a con- 
siderable force of men last week to 
begin work on the foundation of tho rail- 
way bridges, six in number, between here 
and Bear Lako. After tho foundations aro 
in, tho tiu.bors for the superstructures will 
be hewn und got on to tho ground ready for 
putting in place aa soon aa tho anow goes 
off in the spring. About twenty miles of 
right of way is now cleared und tho remain- 
der will bo done before the snow is off in 
the spring. 

Some of our citizens have started a mock 
parliament. They debated a resolution tho 
othor night on the free coinago of silver. 
Sovera! spnakors handled the silvor 
question in a very dexterous mannor, and 
doubtless Borne time will bo heard on the 
real as well a! the mimic platform. 

Tho weather here just now iB very cold, 
the thormometar registering 10° below. 

Tho incoming steamers are bringing im- 
mense cargoes of eupplicB for the mining 
camps. These supplies aro almost wholly 
handled by KaBlo firms, of whom tho Byera 
Hardware Co., Green Brothers, H. Gieg- 
rich, T. A. Garland, McKcnzio and tho 
Balfour Trading Co. aro tho leading onea : 

Everybody here ia just now in dread of 
tho fire fiend, for if a lire once got sturted 
fairly in our business centre, it would work 
terrible havoc among tho frame buildings on 
tho main streets before it could be checked. 
There havo been a couple of alarms recently, 
one of them having been caused, it is sus- 
pected, by tho uct of un incendiary. For- 
tunately tho fire in oach case waa discovered 
before it had got headway, and was quickly 
quenched. A drunken Chinaman was 
burned to death in an isolated shuck last 

Kaslo is now fuvorod with two mails a 
week from the outaido, and thoro is tolor- 
ablo regularity in the service 

A movement ia on foot for tho establish- 
ment of a hospital hero. Tho urgent neces- 
sity of such an institution haa beou ahown 
by scvoral pitiful cuBes of sickness and 
injury by accident thia winter.

But at tho Close the Lowest

New York, Jan. 25. — Extromo dullness 
characterized dealings at tho Stock Ex- 
change during tho greater part of tho day. 
The saloB reached tho small total of 155,115 
shares, and tho great bulk of tho business

Louisville k Nashville figuring for over 100 .

Or La Grippe, though occasionally epi- 
demic, is always more or loss prevalent. 
Tho best remedy for this complaint 
is Ayor's Cherry Pectoral. 

" Last Spring, I was taken down with 
La Grippe. At times I was completely pros- 
trated, and so illfllcult was ray breathing 
that my breast seemed as if confined In an 
Iron cage. I procured a bottle of Ayor'a 
Cherry Pectoral, and no sooner had I began 
taking It than relief followed. I could not be- 
lieve that the effect would he so rapid and tho 
cure so complete. It is truly a wonderful med- 
icine."— W. H. Williams, Crook City, S. D.

Fourth Session of Hio Sixth Parliament; 

Thursday, January 25, 1S9L 
Tho Speaker took the chair <u 2 p.m. 
Prayers by tho Bight Rev. Bishop Porrin. 

The following petitions wero read and re- 
ceived : 

From U. G. Major and others, for a, pri- 
vate bill to incorporate "The Delta and New 
Westminster railway company." — Mr. 

From "The British Columbia Southern 
railway company," for a private bill to con- 
solidate their corporate acts. — Mr. Smith. 


~Dk. Watt moved, " That an humble ad- 
dress be presented by this house to the 
Lieutenant-Governor, praying him to again 
move the Dominion government to incroaBO 
tho per capita tax on Chinamen doming into 
tho Dominion to $100 each ; at the samo 
timo expressing Btrongly tho opinion of this 
house that threo-fourthB of all moneys re- 
ceived at British Columbia ports from tho 
proposod higher tax, or (if such higher tax 
bo not imposed) from tho prosent tax of S50, 
should bo paid to this province, as tho ohief 
injury from tho presence of theso Chinamen 
is sustained by this province, and not by tho 

Tho movor said such a resolution was 
unanimously passed at the last meeting of 
the houso, and ho had no doubt this would 
bo similarly received. Ho emphasized the 
non-desirability of the Chinese, who camo 
here practically as slaves brought by tho 
largo companies who deal in Chineso labor, 
and contributed practically nothing to tho 
welfare of tho province. 

Hon. Mr. Davie Haid ho thought no one 
would disagree with tho latter part of the 
resolution, which had been tho subject of 
strong representation on his part when ho 
visited Ottawa in tho fall of 1S92. It was 
quite true, as stated in the resolution, that 
the province suffered tho chief inju.-y from 
ths presenco of Chinese, and this was 
especially noticeablo in connection with tho 
administration of justice amongst them, 
tho whole expense of which hud to bo borno 
by tho provinco. It seemed but right ths>t 
the Dominion government should adopt 
some prohibitive plan to prevont tho influx 
of large numb ;rs of an undeBirublo element. 
Many years elapsed before tho provinco 
could get them to take action by tho 
imposition of a tax, which, when im- 
posed, doubtless had had the effect 
of preventing tho country becoming flooded 
with Chinamen. Ho was pleased to seo 
that thero had been a diminution of tho im- 
migration of Chinese during tho past year, 
and though this decreased tho revenue h 
would not 1)3 sorry to see this Bourco of 
revenue ceaso altogether. He believed if 
the tax wero higher fewer Chinamen would 
come in. Tho resolution now proposed was 
moderate and reasonable, and ho had 
much pleasure in supporting it, as ho 
had done with sirnilur resolutions 
on previous occasions. He thought 
tho mover was entitled to tho sin 
cere congratulations of tho houso for having 
taken up the matter, and he hoped, as he 
felt sure it would, that tho resolution would 

Hon. Mr. Beaven hoped more attention 
would be paid to this resolution than ap 
peared to have been given to the previous 
resolutions on this subject. He referred to 
efforts ho had mado to havo the legislature 
put into their own statutes relating to largo 
works for which labor would bo in demand, 
a prohibition of the employment of 
Chinese, and until they did this he 
did not see how they could expect 
tho Dominion to pass prohibitive legisla- 
tion. He thought that while thero were 
thousands of white peoplo out of employ- 
ment there were hardly any Chinese in this 
position. Though the Chinese laugh at our 
laws and our religion and everything wo 
hold most dear, wo continue to give them 
employmont and thus onoourago them to 
come. It seemed to bo very difficult to got 
the Dominion government to look at this 
matter in a proper light, for they appeared 
to think that tho matter of trading with 
China and Japan was of more importance 
than wero the interests of this provinco 
which suffered through it, and he feared 
also that tho influence of tho great railway 
company who owned the line of steamships 
was too much for the Dominion government 
to resist. He thought if tho government 
and legislature and peoplo of the province 
would act in concert to prevent the employ- 
ment of Chineso they could bring about tho 
change desired, 

Mr. KEITH spoke in supporl of the reso- 
lution, expressing regret that tho legisla- 
ture had not included prohibition of the 
employment of Chinese in granting public 
franchises in connection with private bills. 
He suggested a tax on every person who 
employed Chinese, say of §10 u he^d per 
annum on every Chinaman. 

Mr Hall thought that tho utility of 
auoh a resolution was very questionable, as 
ho did not think the D 'inmion paid very 
much attention to the annual representa- 
tions on this Bubject. Bo was prepared to 
vote for any legislation lot the entire pro- 
hibition of Chinese if it could bo shown that 
we could substituto whi o lubor for all the 
Chinese now at work. T:iis waB not the 
case, however. In Lillooot and Cassiar 
gold mining would bo an absolute impossi- 
bility without tho Chineso, and tho money 
they take out of the mines is clear profit to 
tho provinco. All the white miners there 
and all tho farmers wero agreed that they 
were a distinct benefit in those sections. 
Without Chineso labor tho Bulmon canneries 
would have to close down, as the margin of 
profit wub too small to permit of 
tho payment of living wages to 
white men for tho work now done 
by Chinamen, and the white peoplo now em- 
ployed in all tho higher positions would bo 
thrown out of employment. Ono reason 
why tho East did not feel Chinese competi- 
tion was because white men and women 
worked for starvation wages, which we in 
this province would bo ashamed to offer 

Mr Horne Bpoke in favor of tho resolu- 
tion, claiming that without Chinese the 
white population would double. 

Hon. Mr. Turner said ho heartily 
favorod the proposition that tho province 
Bhould receivo three-fourths of tho tax. He 
did not think, however, that to increase the 
tax to §100 would have very much effect in 
the way of exclusion, und ho agreed with 
tho remarks of Mr, Hull when ho said that 
without tho cheap Chinese labor some im- 
portant industries would ha^o to Bhut down. 
This would bo the caso with tho salmon 
canneries. It was the deairo of tho canners 
to introduce whito labor as much as possi- 
ble, but there was ono part of tho work now 
dono by tho Chineso on contract which 
white men absolutely could not do at the 

Erico and no higher prico could 
o paid. It quite true that 

tho Chineso sent a largo sum 
of money out of the country every 
year, but on tho other hand thero had been 
this year, for instance, two million 
dollars brought into tho provinco in connec- 
tion with the salmon business alono, which 
would not havo corns had it not been for 
Chineso labor, and the greater purt of this 
money wus paid to whito peoplo. 
Mb. Hunter suid that it had been forced 

upon him during the past fsw dayB that, 
the general elections being dangerously 
near, it was the duty of every member to 
place himself on record on Buch important 
questions. (Laughter.) Ho felt particular- 
ly bound to express himself on the Bubjcot 
baforo tho house, as ho found ho was billed 
as a candidate in an important section 
where the Chinese question is a very grave 
one. (Renewed laughter.) Of course ho 
was in favor of tho resolutions — under the 
circumstances ha could not bo otherwiso. 
As to the suggestion that persona employing 
Chinese should be taxed, he had only to say 
that he hoped when this was done the mem- 
ber proposing it would bo mad% tho tax 

Mr. Kitchen stated that on the Colum- 
bia river ono of the largest canneries em- 
ployed whites exclusively, and ho asked 
why the canners on the Fraser could not do 
tho same. He wanted to know also how 
it was that the number of canneries was in 
oreasing if the profits wore bo Bmall. 

Mr. Hall replied that tho onditions of 
tho catch in the two places wero not the 
same, but apart from this tho Columbia 
river canners had tho grea 1 ; advantage of 
free access to tho markets of tho Unitod 
States. As to the incroaae in the number of 
canneries, Mr. Kitchen must know that 
thore was a groat amount of capital in tho 
world seeking investment, and the capital 
iats wero too often in tho position Mr, 
Kitchen appeared to havo occupied during 
tho recess, hunting round as a paid agitator, 
waiting for someone to kick him. 

Mr. Stoddaut thought it tho duty of tho 
members of the legislature to take a broad 
provincial view of this subject, and it 
being in tho interest of the whole provinco 
he favored the resolution. 

Mr Forster spoko in favor.of the reso 

Mr. Rooers suggested that tho proceods 
of too Chinese tux should be usod for bring 
ing in whites. 

Mr Sword favored tho resolution but 
opposed tho proposition of the loador of tho 
opposition that the employmont of Chinese 
labor should bo prohibited by legislation 

Mr. Smith thought that so long as any 
class of mon wore in tho country they must 
be afforded an opportunity of earning an 
honest living, therefore ho did not favor for- 
bidding tho employment of any one. 

Hon. Mr. Davie said somo of tho hon. 
gontlomen opposite seemed to havo implied 
by thoir remarks that if the provincial gov- 
ernment really favorod the exclusion of Chi- 
noso they could bring tho Dominion authori- 
ties to seo as they did in tho matter. Tho 
loador of tho opposition had said Bomothing 
to this effect, but though that gentleman 
was a momber of tho provincial government 
for eight yearB, and certainly was unremit- 
ting in his attention to tho subject, notwith- 
standing tho porsistent efforts then made, 
tho Dominion took no action in the mattoruu- 
til after that provincial governmenthad given 
place to another ono. He thought the present 
government Bhould be accorded by the op- 
position tho samo justice as that which ho 
gavo to tho former ono just referred to. 

Hon. Mr Heaven said that what he 
chiefly blamed the government for was for not 
making it quito apparent to the Dominion, 
by legislation forbidding the employmont of 
Chinese, that the people of the provinco 
wero in earnest in their representations on 
this matter. 

Hon. Mr Davie replied that when tho 
men aro horo they have got to work or steal, 
and therefore cannot be denied employment. 
It was quito a mistako to say, however, that 
not many Chinese are now unemployed iu 
this city ; he knew that thero wero a con- 
siderable number in this position. Person- 
ally, whatever work he had had to havo 
dono he had given to whito men, and ho had 
dono what little ho could in this respect. 
Many of those, however, who talked so 
much about giving no employment to 
Chinese, hook no steps to provide work for 
white men either, and it wua such people as 
this, who employed no ono, who wero tho 
chief agitators. 

Mr Cotton Baid the reapon the immigra- 
tion of Chinese had fallen off during the past 
year was because of tho dullnets in tho labor 
market, as tho agencies in China were quito 
well informed as to tho condition of uffairs 
in this province. 

Dr. Milne said he would voto for tho 
resolution, as ho had voted for similar reso- 
lutions in previous sessions. Ho did not 
ugreo with the proposition that no white 
man should employ tho Chinese, for when 
they wero in the country it was a necessity 
that they should have work in order that 
they might not have to steal. It 
wjb a fact that thero were in Victoria at 
present moro Chineso in want than thero 
had been for many years, and in the 
matter of relief, as these men had paid uu 
import tax on coining into this country ho 
thought they had a just claim upon the 
community for help. He thought, how- 
ever, that the Dominion should help to bear 
tho burden of this. 

Mr Se.^i lin dealt particularly with tho 
proposition to have a groator proportion of 
the poll tux paid to tho province, which he 
thought it wus not very wiso to coupla with 
tho other part of tho resolution, lest tho 
Dominion authorities should think that the 
revenue question was the most important. 

Dr Watt, in answering some of the ob- 
jections which hud been made to the ro olu- 
uou, Baid that its it was not proposed to 
drive out the Chinese, but merely to pro- 
vent their further importation in such num- 
bers, ho thought it possiblo that whito labor 
might be gradually substituted for tho Chi- 
nese now necessarily employed in tho canner- 
ies und elsowhoro. 

The resolution was unanimously adopted.

Hon. Mr DaVIE presented a return to 
an order of tho house for copies of all cor- 
respondence between himself and Mr. H. C.

In the Legislature yesterday Mr. Kitchen 
Bought to weaken the ell'ect of tho exposuro 
made the day boforo of his strange conduct 
with respect to certain documents found in 
his possession, by denying the accuracy of 
tho Colonist report of tho incident ub it 
came up in the House. Though no confirma- 
tion appears to be necessary, as the matter 
was so clear to all who heard tho discussion, 
it iB interesting to notice that tho report in 
the TimoB, tho local organ of Mr. Kitchen's 
party, corroborates the COLONIST on the 
points disputed. Our report said : 

With these two paperB he found tho ono 
on " British Columbia's defamers," and 
thus it camo into his possession without the 
Premier intending that no should see it. 

The Times report is : 

Mr. Kitchen — When the Attorney-Gen- 
eral said that I purloined the document ho 
know that he was saying what was not true. 
He knew that he placed that document in 
my hand himself, whether intentionally or 
not I do not know. 

Alleging that he said nothing of anything 
having been given in mistake, Mr. Kitchen 
also disputed this pasaago in tho Colonist 
report : 

Mr. Kitchen claimed that the report 
which he read in tho Barkorville post oilico 
was handed to him by the wife of tho post- 
master, who asked him what it meant, ns 
sho had got it instead, she supposed, of an- 
other paper called "Facts and Figures," 
which had been circulated there. 

The Times report is : 

What I reading when he camo in and 
interrupted mo was a minute of un Order- 
iu- Council on the mainland petition which 
he hud given to Mrs. Stone in mistake at 
tho public meeting for a document called 
" Facts and Figures" that he was circu- 

It seems that tho accuraoy of a nova- 
paper report is no safeguard against its be- 
ing challenged by members of tho Opposition 
who feel that the publication of tho facta 
is prejudicial to their political interests. 

In contrast with tho reports from which 
the abovo extracts are made, tho News- 
Advertiser of yesterday attempts to deceive 
its readers by a gross misrepresentation of 
tho facts, and notwithstanding Mr. 
Kitchen's admission as to how ho got tho 
document, and his subsequent statement 
that he had no reason to suppose that Mr. 
Davie knew it was enclosed in tho volume 
of the Public Accounts which he handed to 
Mr. Kitchen, the Vancouver organ publishes 
the following : — 

To make a point Mr. Kitchen roao and 
demanded of Mr. Davie if ho did not give 
him tho document? Mi. Davio denied it 
but Mr. Kitchen proved that Mr. Davio had 
handed him the document at Chilliwack in 
a public meeting in tho presence of many 
people and Mr. Davio did not venture 
again to deny it. 

The fact is that Mr. Davio, as tho other 
reports Bhow, did givo an unqualified denial 
to Mr. Kitchen's statement. It will bo no- 
ticed that tho Nows-Advertisor makes no 
mention whatever of tho fact, which even 
Mr, Kitchen docs notdisputo, thut what was 
handed to him to read was merely a volume 
of tho Public Accounts, between tho leaves 
of which this private document had heon in- 
serted by its ownor. Tho Advertiser's re- 
port bearB internal cvidonce of having boon 
"cooked" by the accommodating eavesdrop- 
per who primed Mr. Kitchen for his com- 
plaint of yesterday afternoon. 


Tho rovolations that were made in tho 
Legislative Asssmbly on Wednesday will 
not raiso Mr, Kitohon in tho OBtimation of 
tho pooplo, oithor as a private citizon or a 
public man. Mr. Kitchon's own confession 
showed that ho is capable of reading a docu- 
ment that ho know waB not intended for his 
perusal and which camo into his possession 
by tho miatako or inadvortonco of a politicul 
opponent. Tho plain course for an honor- 
able and a manly man to pursue whon ho 
found in tho book lent him by a political 
opponent a document of any kind, would be 
to hand it back to him immediately without 
rending a single word of it. Mr. Kitchen 
had tho opportunity to do thiB, but it is 
clear that ho does not posBess tho instinct 

which would have impelled him to restore 
it to its owner then and there unoponod. 
Not only did Mr. Kitchen retain 
in his possession a document that 
it was never Intended ho should see, but 
when in hiB opinion tho propor time hod 
arrivod, ho ondeavored to use it to the pre- 
judice of the gentleman from whom it waB 
taken. Tho meanness and tho dishonor- 
ableness of Buch a proceeding must bo evi- 
dent to overy man who possesses a spark of 
right feeling. 

But Mr. Kitchon succeeded only iu show- 
ing what hia intontious wore, and in making 
it abundantly plain that he ia Badly*want- 
ing in right principle Tho document 
being a draft of a letter written by Pcomior 
Davio himsolf, was of no ubc to anyone but 
tho writer, and its appropriation by Mr. 
Kitchen was a matter of vory iittlo conso- 
iiuonco ouly in so far as it showod what 
manner of man ho is, and to what meanness 
ho cuu descend to mako what ho considers a 
point against a political opponent. Mr. 
Kitchon's evident uuconaoioinness that 
ho had done anything mean or dishonorable) 
or unworthy a gentleman, makes, as far as 
ho is concerned, tho matter all tho worse. 
It is vain to expect honorable and manly 
conduct from a man who shows by his acts 
that ho does uot know what is unmanly 
and what is dishonorable. 

We cannot but think that whon this mat- 
ter of tho appropriation of a stato papor 
that was inadvertently hnndotl to him, and 
tho attempt to mako uso of the property 
thus appropriated, como to bo known by tho 
honest electors of New Westminster Dis- 
trict, they will not bo proud of their repre- 
sentative. Sorao of them will bo pretty 
suro to aak if there were a twenty-dollar 
note in the bonk, would Mr. Kitchen bo 
justified in appropriating it, and in making 
what ho considered tho moat profitable uao 
of it ? There can bo but one answer to that 
queBtiou. The courso to bo pursued in such 
a caao is so evident that no ono will hesitate 
to condemn the man who would not pursue 
it. Yot tho document which Mr. Kitchen 
appropriated might havo been worth to Mr. 
Davie many twenty-dollar notes, for uught 
Mr. Kitchen knew to the contrary. 


Wo havo seen that tho United States 
deficit for the current year is expected to 
bo between thirty and fifty millions of dol- 
lars, or, roughly, botwoen six and ton mil- 
lions Bterling. This very largo deficit, 
although it is allowed to bo unpleasant and, 
to a cortain extent, embarrassing, is not re- 
garded by the American pooplo as Borious. 
That it is not expected to aflect tho crodit 
of tho country is Been by tho terms on 
which tho Secretary of tho Treasury expects 
to got his $50,000,000, and it is said that ho 
can get §200,000,000 on tho same terms if he 
needs the money. 

But tho anti-liritish nows-mongor aB 
soon as he hoard that a considerable 
British deficit was apprehended raised 
tho alarm and tried to frighten tho world 
with a terribly dismal story. Tho exhibit 
at tho end of nine months of tho British 
fiscal year was not encouraging, certainly, 
but neither tho actual nor tho expected 
deficit can be, in amount, at all compared 
with that of tho United States. The actual 
deficit is not ten millions of dollars, and it is 
expected by somo that at tho end of tho 
fiscal year the deficit will have slightly 
diminished. Tho Daily News, which sup- 
ports the Government, does not expect that 
the doficit at tho end of the year will exceed 
two millions sterling. The Standard takes 
what is admitted to ba a pessimistic 
view of tho situation, and places tho 
deficit at two millions and a half. 
Tho highest of theso estimates is not much 
more than one-third of the lowest figure at 
which the American deficit is placed. Tho 
principal decrease in tho British revenue is 
from stamp3. Comparod with tho receipts 
of tho corresponding nino months of luat 
year there is a deficiency of .£1,279,150; tho 
customs deficiency wa8 £209,109, .and that 
of the excise £.'537,731. There have been 
increaaea in tho property and incomo tax in tho 
Poat OfEco revenue, and iu the receipts from 
tho telegraph service. A deficit of ten, or 
at most twelve milliona of dollars in Great 
Britain cannot bo moro formidable to that 
country than a deficit of thirty or fifty mil 
lions of dollars in the United States. Thoeo 
who read the diamal American accounts of tho 
stato of the British rovenuo would never 
suspect thut tho American deficit will be 
between three and four times as great as the 
ono which tho British expect. But Amori 
cane are in tho habit of saying tho best that 
can bo said of their own country, while tho 
British have a fashion of speaking of their 
public affairs in a way the roverso of 
cheerful. For inBtanco, tho British nows 
papora are exceedingly molancholy ovor the 
approhonded deficit of two or two and a half 
millions, whilo many American journals 
conaider their country'a deficit of threo or 
four times that sum so trifling as to bo 
hardly worth mentioning. 

WILL IT pass:- 

No ono appears to know what tho WilBon 
Tariff Bill will bo like whon it is presented 
to tho President for signature. It is pre- 
dicted that it will not got through the 
Sonato unless it is greatly modified in some 
important respects, Many Democrats aro 
as Btrongly oppoBod to somo of its reforms 
as aro tho most rabid of tho Republicans. 
This is what Harpor's Wookly, which is 
mugwump with a decided loaning towards 
the Domocrats of tho Clovoland school, says 
of tho tariff as it left tho hands of tho 
Wuys and Means committoo : 

Tho Wilson bill is not tho ideal of a tariff 
reform measure It vorifioB the propheoios 
of thoso who, in the campaign of 1892, pre- 
dicted that when intrusted with power the 
Domocrats would, with' regard to tho tariff, 
bo upt to bo rather too halting and timid 
than too radical. But tho "WilBon bill, at 
any rate, points in tho right direction, and 
if it oomes out of tho deliberations of tho 
two Houses with its principal foaturo 

preserved — the free admission of raw 
materials and a corresponding redtio 
of the duties on manuf tcturod urti 
clos — its effoot upon the industries 
as well as tho commerce of tho United 
States will be quiokening in u high degree 
If Btripped of thiB feature, its economio 
value will be gone, and its political value 
too, for it would prove the Democratic 
majority to bo a rabble of incompetents who 
cannot bo intrusted with important uil'aira. 
Tho Domocratiu demagogues who seek to 
prevent the putting of raw materials on tho 
free list becauso those raw materials are 
produced in their States should bo treated 
as enemies to their party. Aud those who 
insiat upon burdening down tho tariff bill 
with legislation providing for an incomo 
tax, aro enemies no leaa dangerous, for 
tho chances aro ten to ono that 
a tariff bill so freighted will never pass. 
Tho adoption of tho Wilson bill essentially 
as it stands, ia the only possibility tho Dem- 
ocratic party has of continuing ita existence 
as a potent fuctor in American politics for a 
long timo to come. Without it tho Dem- 
ocratic party will stand boforo tho pooplo as 
an imbucilo and cowardly crowd. 

From Lhis it will bo seen that an iutolli- 
fient and well-informed obaorver regards tho 
rejection of tho Wilson bill as not an im- 
possible contingency. If it is rejected, it 
will owe its failure to thoDemocratic party, 
That party has tho command of both 
branches of the Legislature and it ia pledgod 
up to tho handle to tariff roform. If it fails 
to carry out its pledges it will fall bouoath 
contempt, both at homo and abroad. 


The attempt which was made by somo of 
tho persons who now form the Opposition, 
to injure the credit of the Province on tho 
London Stock Exchange shows to what 
lengths unprincipled uud unpatriotic men 
will go to gain a point. Their intention in 
circulating falsi/hoods about members of tho 
Government and untrue statements relative 
to the financial standing of tho Province is 
so plain that ho who runs may read. But 
tho statement made by Mr. Duval, ono of 
tho leading separationist advocates, makes 
assurance doubly sure. He let tho cat out 
of the bag whon he said in a Bpeech deliv- 
ered in April last : "Even if tho appeal 
did not succeed, they would gain their chief 
point, as they would show the London 
financiers that it was a poor timo to lend 
money, and so for want of funds tho work 
would have to come to a stop," Happily, 
tho traitorous conspirators were foiled in 
their attempt to ruin tho credit of tho 
Provinco in London, but they havo shown 
tho "cloven foot" bo conspicuously that 
thoeo who trust them hereafter will have 
only themselves to blame if they are be- 


The Rov. Mr. Maxwell, when ho finds 
how eagr- his lato friends and co-agitators 
aro to repudiate hia Btatenients, must see 
how hollow aro tho profeasions of regard 
and eatoem of demagogues and trading 
politicana. Not ono of those who applauded 
his Bpeoches when they were delivered has 
tho courago to defend him when the accurucy 
of the statements ho made is called in ques- 
tion. It is quito probablo that tho men 
who wero last year most eager to calumin- 
ato tho members of tho Government and to 
poison hia mind against them, aro now tho 
loudest in their assertions that they had 
taken no part in spreading tho slanders. 
Tho Rev. gentleman has now good reason to 
know that the saying of tho French cynic, 
"The absont is always in tho wrong," is 
only too true.

Tho Veteran Judge Receives tho Congratula- 
tions of the Bar— Adams v. Duck 
Appeal Allowed. 

Fuel Court: Present, Sir M. 13. Begbio, 
C. J., Urease, W'alkomaud McCreight, J. J. 

A very pleasing ceremony took placo yes- 
terday morning before the formal business 
of the Full court commenced. In 
view of tho roturn of His Lordship tho Chief 
Justice to tho bench, the major portion of 
tho bar was present to welcome him back. 
Tho venerable Chief Justice has entirely re- 
covered his health, and looks much better 
for his holiday. To tho Attorney-Geueral, 
Hon. Mr. Davie, fell tho duty of expressing 
the sentiments of tho Bar on this occasion, 
and ho did so briefly but gracefully, express- 
ing their congratulations at His Lordship's 
safu return, aud their anxiety for him during 
hisabsenco from among them. On behalf of 
tho Bar the Hon. Attorney-General said 
they hoped that Sir Matthewwould long bo 
spared to administer justice in British Col- 
umbia in the spirit of fairness and impar- 
tiality which had characterized his actions 
for tho lust thirty-four years. 

In reply His Lordship briefly thanked tho 
Bar for the feelings manifested by them, 
and at which ho was deeply moved. His 
chief anxiety while away, however, was 
tho inconvenience that wus necessarily ex- 
perienced from tho state in which matters 
stood when he left. Ho felt deeply grate- 
ful for tho sontiments conveyed to him, 
which he felt were sincero. 

Tho first case called was that of Adams 
(appellant), plaintiff, v. Duck (respondent), 
defendant. This waa an appeal from the 
decision of the Hon. Mr. Justice Drake in 
an action in which the plaintiff claimed a 
large Bum for work porformcd under a con- 
tract for tho construction of a block known 
aa the Duck building, on Broad street, Vic- 
toria. The point raised on tho appeal was 
as to a sum of §870 claimed by Mr. Duck aB 
demurrago for delay in the completion be- 
yond the period specified in tho contract. 
The contractor contended that the 
delay had been occasioned by the fault 
of the owner in not giving him 
possession of a certain portion of tho build- 
ing at the timo necessary to have it in order 
to proceed with tho work, and also in omit- 
ting to furnish plana f';r an elevator re- 
quired for tho building. It was contended 
that this default of tho owner disentitled 
him to uny relief whatever by way of pen- 
alty, on tho ground of tho non-completion of 
the work at tho time specified. 

Their Lordships decided in favor of thiB 
latter contention, aud allowed tho appeal 
with coats, varying tho order of tho court 
bolowl by directing that a sum allowed to 
Mr. Duck at tho trial of tho action for de- 
murrage should bo deducted, making a dif- 
ference in tho umaunt recoverod by Mr. 
Adams, and in hiB favor, of a Bum of §720. 
Mr. Ernest V. Bodwell and Mr. H. Dallas 
Helmoken appeared for tho appellant, and 
Mr. S. Perry Mills for respondent.

Suggestions for Giving - Work After 
the ilost Pressing- Needs Are 

'Toe number of dlstrossed people, 
principally unemployed men Booking 
work who have applied to tne eecretary 
at his office during the last wools or two 
alone, havo embraced in their ranks 
painters, plasterers, clerks, laborers and 
one druggist. Very many ol these people 
appear to have come to Victoria seeking 
a livelihood from either the American 
aide ot the Sound country or the Main- 
land of British Columbia. Some are mar- 
ried, but the moft of them single. I am 
of the opinion that it has become abso- 
lutely necessary that the attention of the 
Government thould be directed to the 
subject at once, before we shell bo with- 
out the means to cope with it. For it Is 
but too fully apparent that the subscrip- 
tions we receive from only a few of the 
public are not enough to meet the re- 
quired help to our resident poor, far less 
to the dostltute and unemployed coming 
here from other placos, some or them ab- 
solutely stai ving. I nood not say that if 
the Society Is to keep up that reputation 
for usefulness which it has" enjoyed lor 
the last twenty-two years, the utmost 
eltons of those Intertsted In its welfa- e 
and tho benevolent purposes which It Is 
itB object to carry out, must be put for- 
ward to increase and establish Its finan- 
cial strength."— Extract from President T. J. 
Humes' report to the annual meeting of the 
llriti.sli Columbia Benevolent Society. 

Tho good work goes on, slowly but surely, 
the second day having added to tho fund 
$108.00. In addition to tho "cash" "A 
Friend" kindly sent to Secretary Mason a 
collection of groceries and clothing; twenty 
loaves of bread came over from tho Drill 
hall, aud Mrs. Lavender sent in more gro- 
ceries. The cry is still for "work" many 
fine young men visiting the oflico of tho 
Benevolent Society daily with the same sad 
appeal — "For God's sake give us something 
to do." 

Suggestions aro freely offered, and all con- 
tain merit. One correspondent Buggests 
that the unemployed b^ given the work of 
putting in order tho old cemetery on Quadra 
streot. Another urgea that tho City 
Council como to tho rescue by 
at once proceeding with aewerago con- 
struction. Other hints are volunteered and 
all, no doubt, are good — but the fact re- 
mains that while the matter is being dis- 
cussed and the various suggestions weighed 
and considered, tho people aro hungry. 
First of all help relievo tho immediate dis- 
tress — then discuss tho necessary measures 
for more permanent relief, Tho list ia still 
open and tho funds in hand are very low. 
Tho Benevolent Socioty is careful to see 
that only deserving cases aro relieved. Let 
tho subscriptions to tho fund to-day equal 
Wednesday's and yesterday's together. 
Surely this can bo done. 

Yesterday's results show that tho people 
aro not forgotting tho suffering at their very 
doors ; the kindness of heart that prompted 
the employes of Spencer's Arcade in passing 
a list among themselves will not soon bo for- 
gotten by tho deaerving recipients of their 
handsomo contribution.

To tiik Editor: — The startling report of 
Mr. Hurues uervos me to write this letter, 
so aB to place before you a Buggostion which 
I think it is possible to carry out in these 
hard times. Tho old cemetery on Quadra 
street is in a dilapidated condition, and the 
monuments erected to thoso brave young 
seamen who wero stricken down, thirty 
yeara ago, whilo serving thoir country's 
causo, are fast going to docay for tho want 
of a little labor and attention. This little 
spot of God's aero might bo mado a boon 
and a blessing to many residents in this 
city, if a good fence was put up, paths laid, 
soats fixed and the earth clothed with 
choice flowers. A drinking fountain in tho 
centro would not cost very much, und. as 
far as possiblo, tho grave-stones might be 
renovated. By so doing I bolieve weshauld 
be honoring tho departed. Tho money at 
present being collected for the men who 
cannot find work could not bo better spent. 
Thoro may bo more popular suggestions 
than mine; but in tho manner proposed tho 
poor would recoivo something in roturn for 
their labor, and tho honest workiugman 
would feel hotter satisfied, knowing that he 
had earued what ho received. An appeal to 
the City Council for part of tho required 
funds and to tho captains of H. M.'s ships 
to do somothing, in tho shape of a concort, 
towards renovating tho graves of their de- 
parted comrades would not, I beliovo, be 
mado in vain. Galilee

Our Cities After Dark— Tho Right of SeU 
Protection— Matrons or Twenty Looking 
Out For Girls of Forty— Tlio Code or 

(Copyright, 1891, by American Press Associa- 


FRIEND of mine whoso 
business compels him to 
travel a good deal, al- 
' though ho is not that spe- 
cies of commercial agent 
k. vulgarly called a "drum- 
mer," camo to see mo tho other day, and 
in speaking of his travels I asked him 
what seemed to him tho distinctive fea- 
tures of some of our principal cities. 
His answer was peculiar. 
"Tho thing that has struck mo most, 
forcibly of late," said he, "is the differ- 
ent aspects after dark of tho cities I have 
last visited. In Now York under tho 
gaslight certain forms of vice and dan- 
ger stalk abroad almost; as boldly us in 
London or in San Francisco. In tho up- 
per part of tho town the streets are quiet 
enough, but what few prowling figures 
you seo suggest garroters or highway- 
men of oue sort or another, while down 
town tho pickpockets, watch snatchers 
and similar gentry jostle each other on 
every curbstone. Not a month ago a 
gentleman from tho provinces inspect- 
ing our 'Yankee towns,' as ho chose to 
class New York, told mo that, strolling 
across Madison squaro one evening, he 
was accosted by a well dressed man, 
with a very conspicuous watch chain, 
who quietly said, 'Give mo your pocket- 
book and watch, or I'll call that police- 
man over there and swear you were try- 
ing to snatch my watch!' 

"My friend was, to bo sure, alittlo ver- 
dant, but ho was brave, and drawing 
back he gave tho fellow a blow in tho 
jaw that certainly silenced him for 
awhile, and spitting out a tooth or two 
he made off just as the policeman strolled 
that way, and, hearing tho story, told my 
friend such attempts at blackmailing 
were not uncommon and very generally 
succeeded with a quiet or timid sort of 

"Now, that," pursued my friend, "is 
New York. In St. Louis, where I was 
last week, tho streets after dark seem de- 
serted. A few men loaf around tho cor- 
ners, and some tipsy boatmen frolic and 
sing around tho riverside, but you never 
see a lady unattended. In fact, you sel- 
dom see a lady on foot, with or without 
an escort. But in two other cities, some 
distance apart — Detroit and Boston — 
quite a different set of conditions obtain, 
In both these places tho streets aro 
thronged quite as much after dark as 
beforo and with much tho same class of 
persons — quiet, respectable citizens go- 
ing about their business or pleasure and 
taking very little notice of eacli other. 

"In Boston especially I noticed ladies, 
or at any rate very ladylike and quiet 
women, hoth young and middle aged, 
walking tho streets quite unattended 
and apparently quite unmolested — in 
fact, I saw several both como in and go 
out of tho theaters, sometimes two or 
three together, but sometimes quito 
alone. Speaking of this to a Boston 
woman, she said she should not bo afraid 
to traverse any part of tho city where 
sho should bo likely to go at any hour of 
the evening." 

"Which proves Boston to bo very much 
of a country village," remarked I, with a 
little sneer, for I much prefer New York 
to Boston myself, but my traveled friend 

"Oh, not at all! Country villages aro 
apt to bo very wicked little places, or at 
least whatever wickedness there is comes 
to tho knowledge of every inhabitant, 
and villago ladies aro always very par- 
ticular about having an escort if they go 
beyond their next neighbor's. They say 
they're afraid 'somebody will speak to 
them,' a phrase which always moves 'one 
to inquire, 'What aro you afraid they 
will say?' 

"No. I think that tho air of Boston 
and Detroit and Philadelphia moro than 
any other cities on this continent is 
adapted to tho coming woman, and that 
tho 'unprotected female' is going out of 
fashion in those places, Tho new idea 
(and why isn't it a good idea?) is that a 
woman is not necessarily tho ward and 
appendage of somomanwho must guard 
her from tho attacks of other men, and 
also from the follies of her own feeble 
brain, but that sho is an individual of 
equal dignity and responsibility with tho 
man and able to protect herself from 
whatever dangers may assail her — not 
with her fists, to bo sure, but by her own 
dignity, and if need bo by appeal to tho 
officers of tho law." 

"Strong minded!" suggested I. 

"Well, you don't think it's nico to bo 
weak minded," retorted my friend, with 
a laugh, and so wo parted. 

Now, is his theory correct? Do tho 
women of a few of our cities already feel 
tho wave of progress that is slowly roll- 
ing around tho world to this extent? If 
so, is it not a foreshadowing of what is 
to come? 

: There has been a great deal of talk in 
tho last few years of women's rights 
and a great deal of discussion as to what 
those rights consist in. But f hero is no 
solvent of knotty questions of a social 
nature like time and also experiment. 
I Woman's right to work was pretty 
easily conceded, for as a general thing 
whatever a woman undertakes to do sho 

does well and intelligently, especially if 

she is spurred on by a determination to 
show that sho can do it as well as a man. 

Moreover, women have always con- 
sented to work for less wages than men 
can command, and it is only very lately 
that Homo fair minded and logical em- 
ployers have practically assented to the 
proposition that tho samo amount and 
quality of work should command tho 
same amount cf wage, let it be done by 
a man or a woman. Then comes tho 
right of standing up in tho cars, a right 
which men themselves invented and con- 
l-'rred upon tho mothers and wives of 
lither men, although their own mothers 
and wives when subjected to similar dis- 
cipline from other men probably explain- 
ed to their own mankind how injurious 
they found it. 

And tho right of franchiso is being 
gradually torn and dragged from tho un- 
willing hand of man, and I for 0:10 am 
very doubtful if it will not prove a very 
perplexing white elephant when it has 
been fully captured. 

But what concerns us just now is 
woman's right to protect herself, and it 
seems by my friend's report that this 
right is on trial in somo of our cities 
protty extensively. 

Now, it seems to mo that this is a very 
legitimate and sensiblo kind of right, 
and also one which will develop by its 
exercise the very ^>est and most valuablo 
traits of the woman of tho future. If 
sho is to stand for herself instead of run- 
ning behind her big brother at every 
alarm, sho must acquire, or rather prac- 
tice, dignity, firmness, self respect and 
courage, not tho courage of the prize- 
fighter, but of tho monarch, tho queen, 
who feels that she is safe among her sub- 
jects by tho simple right of her queen- 

Now let us get back to tho pith of 
this little screed and consider whether 
our girls do really need chaperons, or if 
tho old colonial custom of maids and 
matrons going whither they would, by 
sunlight and moonlight, in company with 
their brothers, their fathers, their cous- 
ins or their uncles, as the caso might be, 
or without them, just as it happened, 
was not really nearer the proposed era of 
woman's rights than the world has been 
during the last half century. Of courso 
wo all know that in the beginning these 
United States, or rather tho society of 
tho new nation, was by preference and 
choico opposed to tho traditions of tho 

Etiquette and formality reigned su- 
premo at the courts of Versailles and St. 
James, so let us despise etiquette and 
formality and bo as patriarchal and 
pastoral as possible. President Jeffer- 
son, I believe it was, who complained of 
the cumbrous ceremonial of the White 
House and stripped the servants of the 
modest livery George Washington had 
instituted, and when ho gave a state din- 
ner to tho English plenipotentiary and 
his wifo took somo other lady to dinner. 

But as the country grows in wealth 
and luxury, as Americans moro and 
more spend their holidays abroad and 
keenly observe tho manners of other peo- 
ple, a change has crept over the prime- 
val simplicity, Anglomania has suc- 
ceeded to anglophobia, and whether the 
White Houso servants may be liveried 
or not half the coachmen and grooms of 
New York are, and the etiquette of vis- 
iting cards has been found worthy of 
several elaborate treatises showing how 
wo may by these magic bits of paste- 
board pretend to those friendly visits 
which our grandmothers honestly made 
to each other. 

Along with the other importations of 
conventionality has come tho system of 
chaperonage, and it is as artificial as all 
the rest. The original idea is good. A 
very young girl should go into society 
with her mother, just as the parent bird 
when the fledgling begins to try its 
wings accompanies its feeble flight, 
chirping encouragement and showing 
how to guide tho tremulous course and 
how to find the early worm or the glit- 
tering grub. But so soon as tho young 
bird has strength and sense enough to fly 
alone, tho mother goes about her more 
important affairs and leaves the daugh- 
ter to make practical use of tho lessons 
she has learned. 

But the conventional improvement up- 
on this idea is that the young bird never 
becomes a responsible bird with tho right 
of self guidance until sho is mated, and 
that tho most venerablo and proper and 
demure old maid sparrow must never 
try to fly or to pick up that early worm 
unless sho is under tho protection of 
swine little flirty, flighty hen just married 
to some jaunty little cock sparrow no 
oliier than herself. 

I hope the similo is not insulting, but 
I I cannot help thinking of it 
when I seo a lady of uncertain age, who 
has ripened by tho experience of some 
score of seasons in society, entering tho 
room under convoy of a rosy, curly, 
fresh young bride- who was in her cradle 
when the spinster was a debutante. 

Now, this absurdity arises from a rem- 
nant of tho old barbaric idea that all 
women are fools and all men are brutes, 
for that is the coro of tho old code of 
chivalry, of the institution by Arthur of 
tho Knights of tho Round Table and a 
great deal more of tho pretty and the 
impossible state of things people some- 
times pretend that they would liko to 

What were tho duties of tho Knights 
of tho Round Table? They wero to ride 
up and down the land rescuing tho dames 
and damsels who wero being carried 
away by wicked knights, or who, being 
married to other wicked knights, wero 
being dragged about by their hair, turned 
out to starve and otherwise maltreated. 
They wero also to take and keep a vow 
of such self control and decency of life 
as is now expected of every man, bu5 in 
that day was the exception and not at 
all the rule. 

Well, under such a condition of af- 
fairs chaperons for singlo women be- 
came a necessity, for tho married wom- 
an, however young and silly herself, 
posfused a husband whose duty it would 
bo to fight not only for his wifo, but tho 
helpless creature under her and his pro- 
tection. If they went to ride in tho 
green wood, he and his men at arms 
would prevent tho predatory knights, 
who always seemed to bo prowling 
around, from swooping down and carry- 

ing off the women, and if they went to 
a ball at Camelot or somo other fash- 
ionable resort the fear of tho chaperon's 
husband would prevent those open and 
insulting protestations and proposals 
which apparently overy man was ready 
to make and overy woman perfectly help- 
less to resist. 

But those noblo days of chivalry aro 
past, and the world has moved on sev- 
eral degrees upon that enormous orbit 
which they tell us encircles Borne un- 
known center around which our ontiro 
eystem revolves. Men havo learned to 
cultivate their brains and their pockets 
instead of simply their passions for mur- 
der aud rapine. They aro no longer^con- 
tent to be simply tho malo animal of the 
genns homo. If they aro still formida- 
ble to tho safety and honor of women, 
it is only when tho woman cqnrts tho dan- 
ger and would not for tho world havo 
any Galuhads and Percivals interfering 
in her littlo amusements. And women 
aro no longer fools, nor babes, nor tho 
helpless prey of her destroyer. Sho has 
as a sex grown out of childhood into 
youth and has developed an amount of 
character and a wealth of promiso that 
have fairly made tho tradition mongers 
and conservatives stand aghast and stam- 
mer in dismay: "Stop! Stop! Where 
aro you going? 

Does not it seem probablothnt this ex- 
traordinary growth and maturity of 
womanhood is to make its mark upon 
society, as it has upon labor and upon 
politics and upon public thought? If 
women aro showing themselves compe- 
tent to earn their own living, to think 
their own thoughts and to express them 
in literature and out, if they already 
largely govern tho school boards and are 
reaching out toward the helm of state, is 
it not time that they should leain to pro- 
tect themselves from insult and to guide 
their own steps with discretion? 

A young fellow going into society does 
not take his father along to guard him 
from the snares and follies most young 
men aro at least tempted to. In fact, 
these dear boys would resent, with a 
very formidable wrath, any suggestion 
that they could not take care of them- 
selves, and also of their sisters if need be, 
nor indeed aro they loath to propose them- 
selves as the guides, protectorsand cham- 
pions of other men's sisters if not of 
their wives. But why is the hoy of 20 so 
much more responsible and trustworthy 
than the girl of 18, and why, if one is to 
take care of the other, does not she take 
caro of him? for I really think if the girl 
had been brought up with a sense of bet- 
own responsibilities sho would bo the 
stronger of tho two. 

Do not suppose, however, that I am 
advocating the complete emancipation 
of young girls from parental control. 
No, for I think nothing more disagree- 
able than the independent and almost in- 
sulting tone adopted in theso days by a 
good many girls toward their fathers 
and mothers. No, my idea is simply, let 
the girls be trained while still children 
to such true and womanly self respect 
and self reliance that they w uld no 
more misbehave themselves in society 
than their mothers would, and lot them 
as they grow older show their right to 
freedom by their moderation and wis- 
dom in using it. 

But if some weak or ill advised sister 
really need a guardian in going among 
people, let her at least select some one 
uld enough to bo her mother instead of 
a bride fresh from boarding school.

Cheap dinner Bets at CheapBide 

The Townsite Company have entered into a contract to build a wharf to deep water 
at lowest stage, at the foot of Victoria avenue. This will cost about $4000. 

The C.P.R. Telegraph Company are building their through line from Revelstoke to 
Nelson, Nakusp and Kaslo via LARDEAU CITY, where the office for the Lardeau and 
Fish Creek Districts will be situated. It is expected that this line will be opened in a few weeks. 

A Mining Recorder is stationed at LARDEAU— a convenience for the prospectors of 
this region. Many rich strikes have recently been made on Fish Creek, a few miles from 
LARDEAU. A steamer calls three times a week at LARDEAU. 

The charter for the Lardeau & Kootenay Railroad has its commencement at LAR- 
DEAU CITY. This line will undoubtedly be built in the near future, as it is the only route 
to the famous Lardeau Mines on Trout Lake and the shortest and easiest pass to Kootenay Lake. 

Prospectors and capitalists visiting the Lardeau Country will find the best Hotel Ac- 
commodation in West Kootenay at LARDEAU CITY. It is the entrance point to the 
Lardeau, Fish Creek and Duncan River Mines, and will save tima, labor and money to pros- 
pectors who desire to visit these sections. 

LARDEA.U CITY has much in its favor. It is affected by the prevailing dullness 
at present, but its situation is such that it must become an important trading point, and grow 
into a considerable town. 

Investors in West Kootenay should seek particulars about LARDEAU and the District 
tributary to it. Any information will be furnished upon application to the undersigned.

effect, aa the province was not threatened 
with the approach of any epidemic, and 
therofore it was conBidored advisable not to

during the past year, and tho government 
are prepared to put it in force as soon as

Mr. Sword asked, "Upon what terms 
•was tho timo for commencing tho aotual 
■work of construction on the Canadian 
Western Central railway extonded to the 
iBt August, JS91. 

Hon. Mr. Davie— In granting tho appli- 
cation uf the railway company for an exten- 
sion of time for commencing the aotual work 
of construction, no new terms wore imposed. 

Mr, Sword asked : " Has tho bond 
given by the Canadian Western Centra), 
railway company, us soourity that $50,000 
would bo expended within a year in surveys 
for the purpose of locating tho railway, beon 
declared forfeited ? " 

Hon. Mr. Turner— No liteps have been 
taken in the matter. 

Mr Sword asked : " What Bums have 
been diverted to newly formod municipali- 
ties between tho preparation of tho esti- 
mates last year and tho present timo, as 
stated in clause 13 of the address in reply to 
the speech of His Honor tho Lieutenant- 
Governor ? " 

Hon. Mr. Turner — Tho ostimato of 
amounts derivable from proporty taxes was 
based on a calculation from tho rolls of 1892, 
tho assessment of which was mado in 1S9 1, 
consequently nil Bums diverted to munici- 
palities formed in 1S02 affect tho estimate 
of reveuuo made for tho fiscal year ending 
30th June, 1S03. Tho sum bo diverted 
amounts approximately to $40,000, in the 
following municipalities : New Westmin- 
ster district— Sumus, Nicomen, Dewdnoy, 
South Vancouver, Mission, Burnaby, aud 
Matsqui. Yale district— Spallumchem and 

lodgers relief hill. 

The house went into committee on the 
lod^ors relief bill, Mr. Booth in the chair. 

Hon. Mr. Beaven aBked why the bill did 
not simply Bay that lodgers' goods should 
be exempt from seizure for dobtB due by tho 
direct tenants. 

Hon. Mr Davie ropliod that this would 
not give the superior landlord any opportu- 
nity to collect whatever the lodger owed to 
the tenant who had made default in his 
rent, and it was only just the landlord 
should have this right. 

Bill reported from committee.

Hon. Mr. Davie mjved tho second 
reading of the partnership bill. Ho said 
it had been biought in principally at tho 
request of tho boards of trade. It was 
divided into throe parte, the drat reluting 
principally to the law relating to partner- 
ships ; the second to limited partnerships ; 
and tho third to tho registration of general 
partnerships ; this being something new in 
the province. 

Bill read a second timo and considered in 
committee of tho whole, Mr. Sword in tho 
chair. The first two parts were agreed to, 
with a few verbal ohangos, and the commit- 
tee reported progress.

Hon. Mr. Davie moved tho second read- 
ing of tho witnesses and evidence bill. The 
object of this wae, ho said, to set at 
reat several points which commonly were 
matters of contention before tho courts, 
and the effect would bo to shorten the con- 
duct of legal investigations, and to consider- 
ably cheapen and simplify the proceedings.

Mr. Kitchen complained that he waa re- 
ported in the Colonist to havo made ad- 
missions which ho now deqied having mado 
about the draft copy of the "Reply to British 
Columbia's dofamerB," of which he had 
mysteriously becomo possessed. Ho read 
from what he called "a short-hand roport," 
which he eaid he had got someono to make 
for him, a very brief passage of his lengthy 
explanation made on the previous day, and 
offered this aa evidence that he had not ad- 
mitted that ho know tho document in quea- 
tion was unintentionally given to him by 
the Premier. Ho also denied that he had 
said anything about the draft report of the 
executive council having been given out at 
Barkerville in mistake for "Facts and 

Hon. Mr. Davie said the Bo-called short- 
hand report — procured from some sourco 
not even stated, at best, u mere eaves- 
dropper — was no evidence whatever 
cf what occurred in tho house, and aa a 
matter of fact every member present knew 
that Mr. Kitchen did distinctly give tho 
house to understand that ho (Mr. Davie) 
had given him tho document by inadvert- 
ence and was not made awaro of the fact 
that he had given it. If Mr. Kitchen 
stated anything contrary now, ho Btated 
what was uot true. It was in consequonoo 
of this admission that he (Mr. Davie) had 
Btated that the action was simply dishonest. 
Mr. Kitchnn had no more right to keep and 
use tho document which he found inside the 
volume of the Publio Accounts handed to 
him than ho would have had to keep and use 
for his own purposes a S100 noto if ho had 
found one there. Whether or not whoever 
wrote the. alleged "short-hand report" hnd 
taken it down, everyone heard Mr. Kitchen 
malui the admission. 

Mr. Brown spoke in defence of Mr. 
Kitchen's action in koeping the il'ioumest, 
and claimed that he hnd acted in an honor- 
able way, because ho had uot made use of it 
publicly until tho return was laid boforo tho 

Mr. Eberts presented a petition from P.. 
A. Anderson and others, relating to the

Mil. Speaker called to tho attention of tho 
government and tho houso that tho room 
formerly occupiod by tho privato 
bills committoo was now in use for 
tho purposes of tho library, and that 
it was theroforo not desirable that 
tho mootings of the committee should bo 
hold there. He hoped another room could 
bo provided. Tho fact that thoy wero so

" RUMOllS." 

To the Editor:— I was considerably 
puzzled at reading in your Wednesday's 
issue, under a prominent heading, the 
" rumor " of a parliamentary ticket, headed 
by Mr. James Punsmuir, for Nanaimo, 
which "ticket" had been selected to contest 
a number of provincial constituencies, and I 
must confess to much dulness of compre- 
hension in failing to perceive that tho an- 
nouncement of the ticket was a " little 
joke " until I read your leader in this morn- 
ing's paper, stating that such was the caao. 
1 would BUKgest to your "valued contri- 
butor" that tho next time ho porpotruteB a 
"little joke" in your columns, he Bhould 
give diBtinct notice of the fact, so aa to take 
no one unawares. 

Theodore Dayie. 


To the Editor :— Will you permit me 
to offer a suggestion towards remedying the 
present distress. It iB not a new one ; on 
the oontrury it has been carrir.d into effect 
successfully in various parts of tho world, 
particularly in New Zealand and AuBtralia. 
I do not believe our ruling closses aro aware 
of the extent of the present distress, nor do 
people know how much has been done in a 
quiet way to relieve the existing poverty 
amongst people who never knew what want 
was before. Tho present effort, thereforo, 
bo thoughtfully initiated by you will meet 
cases that have been dealt with so long by 
charitable people that they aro quite 
unable to do moro. 

Tho point, which Beems to be overlooked, 
ia this : Where is the prospect of employ- 
ment in the near future 1 \\ o muBt face 
this dark aspect of tho question, and what 
is moro, our ruling classes will havo to face 
it sooner or later. Interest on mortgages or 
rents must be met, and the store- 
keepers cannot exist as things go 
at present; thoir debts cannot bo mot. It is 
something moro than present needs ; debt is 
piled on debt ; and how is it to end ? The 
suggestion is this : Take this sido of tho 
city us an example. We have hundreds of 
acres of good laud untouched by tho hand of 
man, yielding nothing but the unoarned 
increment. We also have hundreds of as 
honest, hardworking, and efficient workmen 
ua can be found anywhere— idle. Ono and 
all express their readiness to go on tho 
vaoaut land to clear and improve it for tho 
moro keep of themselves and families. 

Tho unemployed that I know are miser- 
able in their idleness. They want work 
and they do not want charity. And, air, 
hhey know that charity, if it is given long 
enough, is a euro destroyer of the noblest of 
thoir manly instincts. The case being thus, 
aro wo to remain sitting in our chairs like 
bo many helpless and unreflecting children 
and see tho land idle, our peoplo idlo and 
their characters gradually being undor- 
mined '! It ia our bounden duty 
to bring the land and tho people 
togethor ; and Hub oan readily bo done by 
the Government, who might at onco pass a 
short act to appropriate, at a fair valuation, 
certain lands for tho purpose of (first) pro- 
viding employment for tho willing workorB, 
and (Becond) of opening up the area around 
Victoria for production, tho absence of 
which is tho true causo of all our troubles. 

Tho Government would take measures to 
provido a general store, and tho men would 
be paid in kind and porhaps a small weekly 
salary, to moot interest on mortgages, rents, 
etc, Very little money would bo required, 
the Government issuing bonds, which would 
bo mot only when the improvements realized 
their value. The wholo Bcheme might bo 
put upon co-oporutivo principles, and tho 
men, in working on it, would look forward 
to the timo when their labor would bring 
them a full return, benefitting themBelves 
and the whole community. Lot tho Gov- 
ernment boldly stop into the breach, and 
failing, then tho city.

Western Manufacturers Meet, Bullyrag Each 
Other anil Dissolve Their Association. 

CiilCAuo, Jan. 2y. — The Tribune this 
morning says : "The Western Wheelmakers' 
Association is a tiling of the past. The re- 
presentatives of every lirm in tho Associa- 
tion met at tho Auditorium yesterday and 
voluntarily disbanded tho organization. 
With its dissolution went all hope of form- 
ing a wheel trust, for a year or two at least. 
Tho Association represented a capital of 
§5,000,1)00. It included sixteen firm?, be- 
ing all the leading ones in the West. When 
the wheelmakers got together yesterduy 
they accused eneh other of cutting prices, 
and after spending three hours in trying to 
patch up matters they gave up tho task us 
hopeless. Then they framed tho resolution 
in which they unanimously resolvod to dis 
solve at once."

tickets of admission in quantity for their

proceedings have the promiso of beine; the 
largest and finest ever seen here. Bishop

How They Tried to Prevent the Sale 
of Provincial Bonds in 

Steps Taken By the Government in 
Preservation of the Public 

The completo correspondence on tho sub- 
ject of tho attempt of tho mainland agita- 
tors to prevent tho salo of provincial bonds, 
by circulating defamatory reporta on tho 
London atock exchange, waa presented to 
tho house yesterday, in compliance with tho 
motion passed at tho provious sitting. Ab 
then stated by Mr. Davie, tho correspond- 
ence contains nothing further than that 
given in tho " Reply to British Columbia's 
defamera " laid on tho table on Monday, 
with the exception of tho last letter. Tho 
series of communications speak for them, 
selves us follows : 


London, October 25, 1S93. 

Dear Sir :— I beg to call your attention 
to tho enclosed from Mr. H. R. Beoton, of 
MessrB. Woolaton & Beeton ; my reply to 
this communication was to the etfeot that I 
believed the proprietor and editor of tho 
"Daily News Advertiser " to bo a leading 
member of the Opposition in tho Assembly, 
that you had recently boon addressing 
political meetings on the Mainland, and 1 
supposed that tho individual in question, 
with others, hud descended to tho low level 
of scurrilous abuso by way of a rejoinder to 
your speeches on behalf of the Government, 
that the best way to deal with such abuse 
was for tho Government to confront the 
editor on tho Uoor of tho House, with this 
communication addressed to me, and so 
demonstrate to tho country this gross in- 
stance of party warfare and want of 

I know no ono better able than yourself 
to do justice to tho Government case. I 
hope you concur in this view. 

I sent the other day a copy of the Im- 
perial Institute Year Book, alao a copy of 
tho Royal Commission Ollieial Catalogue of 
tho BritiBh section at the World's Fair, sent 
to me aa a member of Baid Royal Commis- 
sion, H. C. Beeton, 

Agent General for B C. 

London, OjL I t, 1S93. 

//. G. Beelon : 

My Dear Sir, — My attention has been 
called by dealers in tho Colonial market to 
the issue of tho Vancouver Daily Mows-Ad- 
vertiser of 24th September last, reporting a 
meeting on the previous day for the purpose 
of appointing delegates to a "Constitu- 
tional" convention, to be held at Kamloops 
this month, for the purpose of considering 
the relations of the Island and the Main- 
land. From theae proceedings it appeara 
that tho Rev. G. R. Maxwell stated that 
the members of tho Cabinet of B. C. were 
found druuk about hotels in Vancouver on 
the oceision of their visit, and that, what is 
moru important, a Mr. Ker stated that since 
1SS7 there had been a regular deficit 
in '.he budget of §200,000, and 
that Mr. Turner, [in the Montreal 
Gazette," had tried to refute thefact by stat- 
ing that whenever there was a deficit they 
borrowed money in tho English market, 
and kept tho accounts in so simple a manner 
that they had no capital account, but put 
all tho money they had obtained to the rev- 
enue account, thus causing Provincial ruin; 
with more criticism in the same Bense. 

I need scarcely say that such statements 
appearing in the press of the Province, 
even after allowing for tho heat of party 
feeling, are very damaging to tho Provin- 
cial credit, and I should be glad if you were 
able to write mo any comments on the mat- 
ter which would have the effect of allaying 
the suspicion thuB occasioned.

Victoria, B. C Nov. 27, 1893 

My Dear Sir,— I am much obliged for 
your letter of 25th October, and acjompany 
ing letter from Mr. H. R Beoton. I have 
had printed, and now encloso you (ri) copy 
of petition to tho Governor-General setting 
out the grievance against the government 
urged on behalf of the Mainland, {!)) copy of 
a minute of the British Columbia govern- 
ment in reference to such potition, (c) copy 
of a letter written by Hon. Mr. Turner to 
the "Montreal Gazette," dited May 10, 
1893; {<!,) interview with the writer, pub 
fished in the " Toronto Empire." 

Tho documents ('<), (c), and (d), you will 
find to contain a sufficient answer to the 
statements of the petition and lo what, was 
said at the meeting mentioned by Mr. H. R. 
Beeton. I do not allude to the personal 
Blanders of tho clergyman, Mr. Maxwell. 
An intimate acquaintance with my col- 
leagues, and myself, of many years stand- 
ing, will enable you to appreciate the 
remarks of that reverend defamer at thoir 
true worth. 

Theodore Davie. 

Victoria, B. C, Jan. 19, 1894. 

Mr Dear Mr. Beeton :— I attended to 
your letter of the 25th October, and en- 
closures, immediately upon my return from 
tho mainland, where I have lately spent a 
great deal of my time attending to assize 
work and other ollieial matters, and on tho 
27th November I wrote you a letter which 
you will obiervo amongst the enclosed docu- 
ments, but there has been a great deal of 
deluy in sending tho matter off, due, prin- 
cipally, to the fact of my very frequent trips 
away from Victoria. 

You will observe that I have had your 
letter to mo, with Mr. H. R. Beoton'B letter 
enclosed, and my letter in roply, printed, 
together with u copy of tho potition to the 
Governor-General containing charges of n is- 
goverument, tho reply of tho executive 
council then to, copy of the original letter 
of Hon. Mr. Turner to the Montreal Gazette 
(presumably the letter reforred to by Mr. 
Ker in his remarks at the meeting of the 
24th Septomber), and copy of an interview 
with tho writer, published in tho Toronto 
Empire on tho 13th June, 1893. 

These documents ure all set up together, 
and copies will bo laid on Monday next on 
the desks of members in tho house of assem- 
bly, and, being done up us olliuial papers, 
will bo printed with the sessional papers of 
British Columbia. 

I shall aend you 100 copies of tho docu- 
ments, which you can distribute in such a 
way as you think beat calculated to meet 
the Blandora which havo been circulated 
concerning the province.

Highly Successful nnd Acceptable Presenta- 
tion of " Tho Black Hussar "-Picturesque, 
Tableaux— A Splendid Performance. 

The Calhoun Opera Co. openod thoir en- 
gagement at The Victoria laBt ovening, pre- 
senting Milloeokner'a " Black Husaar " to 
an audience that occupied almost every 
available scat between floor and ceiling. 
The bill waa now here, and tho tuneful little 
opera proved very acceptable. Even tho 
vurietios introduced in tho third and last 
act, and which marred the continuity of the 
opera and seriously injured its finale, were 
accepted with good humored approval, tho 
dunce of the wooden shoo brigade and the 
grand fancy drill of the chorua being heartily 

Of the opera itsolf it may be said that it 
ia written for tho male voices, and doeH not 
give tho ladies a fair opportunity for tho 
diaplay of their vocal ability. It 
iB, however, full of military vigor 
and impetuoaity, tho uniforms ot throo 
armies being avuilablo for picturesque 
tableaux, and the wearers of the black and 
whito furnishing heroea aa romantic as ever 
lovely maiden Bighod for. Foremost of 
thoso iB the new tenor and leading man, Mr. 
Georgo Lyding, a worthy successor of the 
late and lamontcd Mr. Paoho. To tho pos- 
session of a clear and charming voice he 
adds a decidedly pleasing personality and 
considerable dramutic ability. Hia friond 
and companion in arms, W alderman (Mr. 
William Schuster) was every inch a soldier 
— big and brusquo, and with a largo, musi- 
cal voice which told magnetically tho pleas- 
ures and glories of tho life of a gay Hussar. 
The comedy element waa divided between 
tho pompous magistrate, Hackenback (Doug- 
las A. Flint), juat as gonial, rotund 
and harmonious aa of yore, Mr. 
ICirtland Calhoun, eccentric and entertain- 
ing, and Mr. Otia 15. Thayor, grotesque and 
also amusing. Of tho prima donnas, Miaa 
Laura Clement and Misa Julia Calhoun, all 
too littlo waa seen on tho opening night. 
Tho twain appeared together in tho intro- 
ductory act in a charming dialogue duet 
which prefaced tho liiialo of tho act, the 
latter decidedly well sung by Missea Cle- 
ment, Calhoun and Cornish, and MessrB. 
Lyding, Schuster and Flint. The develop- 
ment of the climax reached with tho fall of 
the curtain on thia first act may bo men- 
tioned as the best featuro of tho opera, from 
the picturesque as well as the musical stand- 

"Tho Black Hussar" abounds inn for- 
tuuato abundance of good aoloa, duets and 
quartettes, as well aa well-balanced and 
harmonious choruses. Misa Clement's de- 
lightful soprano was heard in a solo which 
did even this popular favorito infinite credit, 
and alao in a Russian ditty in the second act 
which waa very prettily sung. Miss Cal- 
houn waa not, heard in a anisic individual 
number, much as the audience would have 
liked to have heard "Sw iuging on the Grupo- 
vine Swing," which elaewhero haa been 
made a third act feature. 

Were any reference to laat night's per- 
formance to stop here tho public would de- 
mand satisfaction, tor Miss Sylvester 
Cornish would not havo received 
the meed of praise which her Bar- 
bara richly earned. In her own 
choice and Jexpressivo diction, | "Barbara's 
good ! " The glimpse of a flno voice was 
also given by this young lady in the last 
act, in a dragged in but tuneful trio with 
Mr. Flint and Mr. Calhoun. On the whole, 
tho Black Huasar showed the Calbouns' 
1S91 company to have plenty of available 
good material, well handled. The princi- 
pals fit their places well, the chorus is tuffi- 
ciently strong and carefully trained, the 
orchoatrion ia sullicientandthestage fixtures 
bright and picturef que. 

To-night the full Btrength of the company 
will be utilized in the presentation of the 
ever-delightful Bohemian Girl, for which 
the principal parts aro distributed thus :
