McLean nnd Ynutis. SATURDAY, APRIL 12, 18G2. Still Complaining. The Vancouver Tclegraj/Jt has found a new cause of complaint and abuse in the action of a portion of the corporators of the Columbia Trinisportation Company. That paper a few vceks ago " winked aud looked wise" when tlio call of a majority of the corporators was published, in strict conformity with'lhe law, and promised disclosures which would astound the very natives. In that paper of the sth inst. the promised disclosures are made, in v;igue intimations that "somebody's to be cheated," and "somebody's" to make the mod est little sum of $30,000 by a certain little '• hit.tineas transaction," nnd intimates, of cousse, that the aforesaid gentleman of busi ness proclivities resides on the Sound, mid ijuaintly adds, to smooth the matter over aud prevent disagreeable consequences, that "we do not wish to be understood as.nsserting the fact that sinister motives actuated" the party. r ()ne would suppose from the tone of tlie Telegraph for the past eighteen months, that the people of the Sound were at deadly eutni ty with those on the Columbia. We know lmt littlo of the merits of the case iu contro versy, and do not volunteer as the champion i.f the individual who has such a keen eye to " business"; but we must say that the contin ued attempts of that pap°r to create aud keep alive an animosity botween the people of the two -jectionß is very remarkable, to say the least. According to the showing of that paper the people in that section have been the recipi ents of an unprecedented train of injuries, the commencement of which is dated back many years. First we find Governor McGill" usurp ing" unwarranted authority in removing Cap itol Commissioners; next we find Bome one perpetrates a fraud on the Capitol bill, which was rushed through the Legislature by the river members IN leu than fifteen minutes ; tin n we find it heaping abuse upon Governor Tuirry and Judge Hewitt because they did not look through the same spectacles that the Telegraph did; and again we find it bol.lly declaring that the decision of the Ha pr. ;ne Court was obtained by fraud > And even this doea not fill the measure of wrongs eon. mil ted against the Telegraph. The leg i-1 itioo at the last Assembly lias been so dc iva aa to allow "openandar«wed cmniii* ot he enterprise" uaactnated -by sinister ui itirea," however, to peculate at the expense of' ilia corporation! If the THrgrmph is so eertaia that it kw> " MMttod" the gftlf m of UaraMu-Khe pm rt:\ itiea, why doea it hesitate in diiwcting the l'i.iiue to the proper sower? If the Trlrgrtiph if ';trite Nrr that It has feirttd out the pv (Mßphisel of, aa we certainly have good rounds for believing, if it haa traced np his e " section with a rival company, why has that paper doubts, and dslay exposure ? That game is "played out," Mr. Telegraph. 1' u have UMR fault to find with the peo p'" iver here, yon must substantiate your as . rem*. by giving the naae of the " Imw n -a" man. or we can attach but little weight to t'iem — jou cannot surely niwin' the peo of r'iU locality tor so doiti?. * 1.
