A BOMBASTIC BRITON.
Anfl r Surprise for the Ea3tern
A Victoria, B. C, speoinl says:
1 1 wns at the most western part of
their journey that the newspaper
section of the Villard party had
one of their most peculiar experi
ences. Upon arriving' at Victoria,
the principal residents of the pro
vincial government of British Co
lumbia were invited to meet thoin
at lunch on board the steamer
.Yorlft Pacific, which Mr. Villard
had furnished for their journe
Among those present were the
prime minister Hon. William
Smyl-he, Tlon. John lioberson,
provincial secretary, and minister
of finance. Mr. Eedfern; the ma-or
of Victoria; the American consul,
and Mr. lliggins, editor of the
'oloni of Victoria. In reply to
the toast "The Queen,'' the prime
minister made a speech which was
evidently an expression of the
views on which he had long pond
ered, and which no doubt repre
sented ihe opinions of a large part
of lu6 constituents. The annex
ation of British Columbia or any
part of it to the United States, he
declared to be impossible, but said
iie future would certainly bring to
pass the annexation of that part
of the Pacific Coast section of the
United States to British Columbia.
It was in that province, with its
vast deposits of coal, with its cx
haustless timber, with its unpara
lelled harbors, with its illimitable
wheat fields behind it, and with
the new type it was breeding of
men and women of unapproach
able physique, that the start of
empire was to
REACH ITS FINAL ZENITH,
Through the British Columbia
pathway, Asiatic trade was 100
miles shorter than by San Fran
cisco. That the fact of the absence
of coal in California and speedy
absorption of all available land
tributary to it showed that San
Francisco had about reached its
highest development. Portland
could not carry across the bars of
the Columbia the magnificent
commerce that Asia is offering.
It was in British Columbia that
the northwestwardly march of
civilization was to reach its culmi
nation. Passing beyond the de
lineation of the future glories of
this province, the premier, with
less tact than might have been ex
pected, proceeded to prophecy the
certain dissolution of the Ameri
can Union. "Itjs," he said, "a
matter of degonVtioyi th me,
and with niWCotljeFswHo have
attentively cbnsidereuTh'e drift of
affairs in the United States, that
country cannot long continue un
tivMed. Its elements of popu
lation are too varied and the inter
ests of its different sections are too
diverse. The day will come when
it must go to pieces. "When that
day comes, British Columbia will
be glad to lake in her open arms
that Krtion of it which is her
nearest neighbor." The indigna
tion of the Americans at the utter
ance of such sentiments was groat
though as hosts they forebore to
express it. It was in British Co
lumbia, as United States consul,
that Francis, who has been sta
tioned here since 1SC1-, explained
to us that the British rancor
against the union during the late
war reached its most venomous
development. Victoria xvas a per
fect hotbed of secession. It was
hardly more safe for a union man
to express his sentiments there
than in Charleston. General
Hazard Stevens recalls a case of
an American friend of his, while
defending the union cause during
the war in the Driard House in
Victoria was set upon by a crowd
and after breaking a hotel castor
over their heads he had to fight
his way out with his revolver. At
the river edge he found an ndian
with a canoe, whom he induced to
take him down Puget Souud to
the United States mainland. It
was such men as Premier Srnythe
FOSTERED THIS HATRED
Of the American union and union
men. A part of the subject to
which Premier Smythe did not
venture to allude was the strong
feeling which has always existed
in British Columbia in fayor of
separation from the British empire.
This reached fever heat when it
seemed two years ago that the
Canadian government would not
carry out the projected Canadian
Pacific railway to connect it with
Canada and the Atlantic. Minis
ter of Finance, Robison, who
spoke after the Premier and in a
depreciated tone, was one of a
number of prominent Victorians
who signed a petition to President
Hayes to take British Columbia
into the United States. Docu
ments with his signature and that
of others of his fellow citizens are
now on file at Washington. Edit
or Higgins, of the Colonist, who
sat at the same table, was at the
head of a movement which had
his plans all laid at that time for
seizing the government and gov
ernment belongings of British Co
lumbia and seceding from Great
Britain as a preliminary to apply
ing for admission into the Ameri-1
can T. nion, and had they carried
out their plans the United States
would now be in possession of that
indispensible overland approach
to Alaska, which we will now
have to get liold of in some other
Bill ATp's Idea of the Change Sys
tem in Politics.
One time there was an old tramp
going around perusing the coun
try and fooling the people of a
living, and one day he got the
odor of a good dinner as he neared
a farm house, and so he pretended
he was a clock tinker, and the un
suspecting old farmer got him to
work on his clock for his dinner.
Well, he got his dinner first, and
then told the old man to stand up
in front of the clock and watch the
swing of the pendulum and every
time it went backwards and for
wards to keep time with his hand
and say: "Here she goes and
there she goes," while he (the
tramp) wpuld stand back at the
door and get the beat of it by his
ear, and so tell whether it was go
ing too fast or too slow. So the
old man stood up and began his
little song: "Here she goes and
there she goes; here she goes and
there she goes," and he kept it up
about ten minutes, and on looking
around, fie found the tramp was
gone. These office seekers scheme
and plot and toot first one horn
and then another and bob up
serenely like a kildee on a clod of
dirt until they get an office, and
about the time they get fixed in it
good, and have their feet on the
banisters and a pipe in their mouth,
a change has to be made and
over the go. Here she goes and
there she goes. Atlanta Consti
tution. In Newark, N. J., it is said,
there is quite an extensive artifi
cial egg factory which will do the
work of many thousand hens,
turning out about a thousand eggs
an hour, the quality being so good
it is stated, that only a very close
observer could detect the differ
ence between them and hens'
eggs. The yolk is said to be a
mixture of Indian meal, corn
starch and "several other inrredi
ents." The eggs are sold at $13
a thousund, and all the company
can make are taken by two New

essentially a divine boom that the
mother prayed to . Zens that her
child might be, before all things,
beautiful. Beauty seemed to tho
Greeks the visible sign of an in
ward grace, and an expression of
divine ?ood will.

it all that it is claimed to be."

Food for Farmers' Thoughts.
An exchange, commenting on
the increase of population on this
coast, and the crops raised here,
gets off the following:
This is a fruit country, but it is
producing only as much fruit as
its uses required ten years ago.
It is a potato country, but
the potato product has not in
creased with the increased con
sumption. It is a dairy country, but there
has been no increase in the pro
duction of butter to correspond
with the larger demand.
It is a cattle country, but the
herds have diminished rather than
increased under a demand, hither
to unknown, and beef as high here
as in New York. J
We might run through the
whole list of our products with
Nothing is abundant but wheat.
Farmers have a craze about wheat
and grow it at a loss, to the ne
glect of far more profitable crops.
No note has been taken bvi
them of the enormously increased
demaud in all the towns of Oregon
and Washington for fruits, vege
tables, meats, eggs and dairy pro
ducts, and in consequence we
have the dearest market in the
United States for every article of
food except flour onl
No country can produce all
these things better than our ewn.
The profit of producing them
at prices much less than those now
prevailing will still be very large.
Neglect to produce them is the
greatest drawback the country
now suffers. What is the use of
talking about starting manufactur
ing enterprises when in a country
so "well fitted, for agricultural pro
ducts we don't even raise our
own peas and potatoes, and eggs
command 40 to 50 cents a dozen?
