Henry Labouohore, the distiii
tjuished editor of London Truth,
evidently liaii a poor opinion of
Prinoe Ferdinand, of Saxe-Ooburg-
Ootha, who is anxious to oall himself Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria.
According to the somewhat forcible
description of the London editor,
Ferdinand is "a poor, insignificant,
weak creature about as lit to govern a country us a sickly black beetle." Thii testimonial to tlio ability of their new ruler will probably
be received with enthusiasm by the
Bulgarians.—ex.
The existence has recently been
discovered of a detestable microbe
which feeds upon iron with as much
gluttony as the phylloxera upon the
vine, Some time ago the greatest
consternation existed among the engineers employed on the railway at
Uagen by the accidents occurring
at the same place, proving that
some terrible defect must exist
either in the material or the construction of the rails. The German
Government directed an inquiry to
be made and a commission of surveillance to be formed for the purpose of maintaining constant watch
at the spot where the accidents—
one of them attended with loss of
life—had occurred. It was not,
however, until after six months had
elapsed that the surface of the rails
appeared to be corroded, as if by
acid, to the extent of 100 yards.
The rail was taken up and broken,
and it was perceived that it was
literally hollowed out by a thin grey
worm, to which the qualification of
"railoverous" was assigned, and by
which name it is to be classed in
natural history. The worm is said
to be two centimeters in length and
of the size of the prong of a silver
fork in circumference. It is of a
light grey color and on the head
carries two little glands filled with
a corrosive secretion, which is ejected every ten minutes upon the iron.
The liquid render* the iron soft and
spongy, and of the color of rust, and
it is then greedily devoured by the
insects. "Thore is nlJBxiggeration,"
says the officiM'feport of W cdm-
mission, "in the assertion that
this creature, for its size, is one of
the most voracious kind, for it has
devored thirty-six kilogrammes of
rail in a fortnight." — Cologne Gazette.
Further news of the arrest of the
murderers of the crew of the schooner Seabird and Dring and Miller are
at hand. It seems that at Gowland
Harbour the constables and Indian
guides went ashore and endeavored
to find an Indian named Humpnet,
who is wanted for assulting Constable Stewart, They did not find
him, however, and went to McRae's
camp, where after a severe struggle,
in which Constable Miller was badly handled, they overpowered the
Indians and took three of them
aboard. Following is a statement
made by Nnrculmalam subsequent
to the finding of tbe cooking utensils, etc.: He said that almost a
year ago lost July he saw Klak-qun-
kan and another Indian (name withheld) chopping up a small schooner
in this slough, and he was afraid at
the time and did not go near them
or let them see him. He afterwards returned and told Klah-qun-
kan what he had seen and that Indian offered him $50 if lie would
not say anything about what he
saw. He said they had killed three
white men-one of them a one-armed
man. One of the men was shot and
the other two were killed with an
axe. At the time the white men
were ashore in a state of intoxication,
but the Indians were perfectly sober.
The Indians stated that they had
procured 4)100 in. bank notes from
the sloop, part ot which they afterwards expended in whisky. The
informant had also heard from other
Indians that they had seen three
human skulls on the bank near to
where the other human bones were
found. At Cameron's camp the
constables arrested Klah-qun-kan,
who if supposed to be implicated in
the murder of the Seabird's crew.
Yesterday morning the prisoners
were brought up before the provincial court, and the case was continued until Thursday next. The
clothing which was found, and which
il said to have belonged to Henry
Moore, was fully identified by his
wife, who resides in this eity. Mo-
thing hu yet beta heard of the witness who jumped overboard at Salt
Spring Island and made good his
escape, although Officer ,T, Flewin
is searching for him. — Colonist,

San Fkancisco. Aug. 22.—The city

the German savings bank, snd about
300 individual defendants, to recover
property held by the defendant., but
which is clniinod by the municipal
authorities a. a publio square. The
suit is in the form of an ejectment,
alleging that prior to December, 1883,
and for many years prior thereto, the
municipality was owner in fee simple
of the property and tbat the defendants had unlawfully taken possession
of it. Tho answer of the defendants
was that there was no cause of action.
The case is important, and' if the city
should win it will restore property
valued at present at nearly J300.C 'Oto
the municipality, but at the same time
it will deprive several hundred people
of their homes which they bought in
good faith and under ordinances of the
board of supervisors. The cue will
be tried next Thursday.

FROM A FRENCH POINT OF VIEW,
Paris, Aug. 23.—The Sepubliaue
Franeaite says: "An entente cordialo
between England and Franco could bo
easily secured if England were willing
to stop the absurd calumnies and rodomontades of the Australian." England, who hu divided New Guinea
with Germany, cannot afford the annexation of the New Hebrides to
France, but she can demand that
France shall not send their recidivists
and convictsthore. A mutual exercise of
good will would banish the present irritation which ought never to exist.

* Bknson, Arizona. Aug. 23.—A party
of mon arrived yesterday from San
Bernardino Ranch, 70 miles south of
here, near the Sonora line. They uy
the country in that vicinity hu been
so broken up by the late earthquakes
that travelling is about impossible and
stockmen have the greatest difficulty
in gathering their cattle. Earthquakes
occur daily and the ground is so out up
with fissures that a person can't move
except in day and on foot. Thouundi
of springs have been created. There
is an abundance of water, ih places
where it hitherto hu been scarce.
Mr. W. McGuire, merchant, cf Franklin, writes: "I was affected with pain in
my shoulder for eight years—almost
helpless at times—have tried many ra.
medies, but with no relief, until I uud

applications tho pain left me entirely,
and I have had no pain since. Do not

will bo made to continue it The complaint sots forth that land wu graded

WINNIPEG OK ITS MUSCLE.
Winnipeg, Aug. 22.—The Canadian
Pacific Railway Company on Saturday
applied for and obtained an injunction
against Premier Norquay, Commissioner of Railways, Dr. Wilson, Minister
of Public Works, and different con-
trncto«!of the Red River Valley Road.
At a meeting of the Cabinet it has
been decided to Uy the rails and tin
despite the injunction, and it any forcible resistance is offered the Government will be backed by 60,000 citizens,
or ull that sre wanted. Hundreds
drove out to-day to view the piece of
work across the lota for which an injunction wu issued.
THE ROAD WILL   BU FINISHED.
Winnipeg, Aug. 22,—The only thing
of note occurring in connection with
the Red River railroad matter to-day
wu the attempt of the sheriff to compel the gradin to destroy tbe fences
thoy bad erected. The sheriff wu afterwards ordered by the local government to serve the injunction papers on
pain of dismissal. The road will be
graded to tbe boundary this Week.
The government is determined to oontinue the work to completion.
PREPARING FOR FORCIBLE BESISTANirE.
Winnipeg, Aug. 23.—Nothing is
being talked of in the eity save the
railway situation. The oontmeton who
defied the injunction are the heroes of
the hour and are receiving congratulations on all liands. Already tne people are preparing to organise for a
forcible reatttauoe and are easting
about for a leader. Among time
spoken of are Capt White, who led
his company through the Saskatchewan
rebellion J. S. Brock, a prominent opponent of disallowance, and Mr. Hamilton, the present attoruey-general,
Big preparation is being made for the
legal firsy which oommenCesron Wednesday, when application will be made
to continue the injunction,
IT WILL IE BUILT.
Toronto, Aug. 23.—Premier Nor-
quay, of Manitoba, arrived here yei-
terdny nnd left for the States this
morning. He stated emphatically that
no matter where or by whom obstacles
were placed in the way of constructing
tho railway,, it will be built no matter
what the consequences may he.

gailg §ritish Columbian
Tuesday Evealai, Awiast S3, 18R.
All eyes aro now turned to the
railway war in Jlariitobn; and every
new development is eagerly read
and warmly discussed. It would be
useless to deny that public sympathy in this country, as well as in
Manitoba, is almost unanimously in
favor of the people of the prairie
province as against the 0. P. B. It
is felt that the right to construct
competing roads should be clearly
within the hands of the people, and
that any attempt to interfere with
that right ought to be resented.
The people of Manitoba must be
the best judges of their own interests, and the disallowance of their
railway charter meets with disapproval on all sides.
People sometimes think thero is
a want of courtesy visible in the
remarks of our oity fathers when
assembled in their official capacity.
As a matter of fact the utterances
of these gentlemen are Usually of a
most unobjectionable character. At
long intervals the even current of
affairs may be ruffled by the breath
of brewing sourum, but these eccentricities merely give spice to that
which might otherwise become monotonous. But for rough-and-tumble
debate and lofty, reckless kicking,
the Victoria city council must be
awarded first place. Semi-occasion-
ally civic affairs in the capital city
come to a dead lock, and the council chambers are transformed into
a veritable bear-garden. One of
these occasions occurred at the last
meeting. A little while ago Mayor
Fell refused to put a resolution of
which he did not approve. At the
last meeting Ooun. Higgins proposed a resolution in which a paragraph occurred virtually censuring
the mayor. It was, in fact, equal
to a motion of want of confidence.
This also his worship declined to
put, declaring it out of order, and
ordering its mover and supporters
to sit down. The scene that followed is remarkable even in the
history of this very remarkable body.
The mayor shouted and banged his
desk in a vain attempt to stifle discussion, and between him and'those
who were opposed to him the exchange of compliments was suoh as
would invigorate a London fish-wife.
The doctrine that a presiding officer
need not put a motion of which he
disapproves is quite new. But Victoria is fond of novelty and is wonderfully singular in its knowledge
of legal technicalities. The present
dead-lock reminds one of the days
of Oarey, when •ii'bJbVme a serious
question ' among citizens whether
the mayor ought to be hanged or
the council put into tho lunatio
asylum.
It is, perhaps, not always safe to
accept without question the cablegrams received by the i American
press. British opinion haa before
now been ndly misrepresented by
the prejudices of those whose business it is to gather it for transmission across the Atlantic. But if
any faith at all can be placed in information thus received, one must
come to the conclusion that the
attitude of the British people towards the Irish question is undergoing a rapid and positive change.
The by-elections undoubtedly point
to this, for they are becoming almost
uniformly disastrous to the government and favorable to Mr. Gladstone. Moreover, the proclamation
of the Irish league seems to have
been the signal for serious disaffection among the liberal-Unionists.
Just before the last general election
it seemed as if Mr. Gladstone had
almost reached the point where he
could enforce the policy which
seemed to him best suited to the
peculiar circumstances of Ireland.
But the result was a disappointment,
for the Gladstone party was left
hopeleuly in the minority, and the
prospect of a permanent settlement
of the Irish question seemed indefinitely postponed. The coalition
of the Liberal-Unionists with the
Tories resulted in a combination
against* Mr. Gladstone so powerful
that every one began to despair of
seeing the great reformer reach the
end of bit plans for tbe adjustment
of Iriahufnevances. All thia seems
to be changing now. The solid support of the government ia crumb,
ling away, and publio sentiment
throughout the nation is making
known its desire for a change of the
national policy. The disaffection of
Chamberlain ii an incident the influence of -which no one can accurately estimate. With him others
are mre to go, and we may expect
presently to find the government in
a minority and the Liberal leader
once -more called upon to take the
helm of the ship of state. If Gladstone and Chamberlain oan agree
upon a definite polioy acceptable to
the Parnellites, the march of reform
will be quickened, and the grave
will' not oloio upon the Grand Old
Man before he hu achieved one of
the greatest and most difficult triumphs of his life.

.Mta.xMi.g-9r. CUBA.
Cubit ia one of the most Interesting
countries of tho world; its history has
furnished many writers with a thrilling
nili'rrl, yet very little is known, by the
iirdiluiry reader; of tho island, beyond the
Ir-rre filirls that it is the largest in the
West Indian group, that its size is about
ill.' sa'me at our own country, and its
rruple products are sugar, coffee, and to-
l.rii'tro. Its prosperity depends entirely
uron the lust niiiuoil industry, for tho de-
pmiiiition of siijjnr threatens to make its
export by no means prolltublo.
Travellers sneak in glowing terms of
Ihe beauty of tlio country, but the finest
view is gained fioiu tlie sen. The norlh rn shore of Cuba is lined with hills,
whoso lower slopes are dotted with white
houses, which extend, without any interfiling beach or sand, to the water s edge.
The Jlorro Castle, at the entrance of
! iriviinii Harbor, appears like a mass of
ilriiLcoloredrock, tower and battlement
so mingled that the eye can scarcely distinguish which is castle and which is
rrag. From its summit floats tho .Spanish
. flag, blood red and gold. In front, stand-
ing in the sea like a sentinel on guard, is
the Morro lighthouse.
Havana is the principal town of Cuba,
and possesses a fine harbor, which is always crowded with vessels of all coun-
Irics, from the British ironclad to the
small native skill's with their lateen sails,
mi which is often seen a full-length re-
presentMlon of San Cristobal, the patron
saint of Havana.
Tho view of the town from the harbor
is most picturesque—the quay swarming
with sunburnt natives in nightcaps of
scarlet, yellow, and striped, from under
whicli tlielr dark eyes gleam; gaudy
snshes tied round their loins, bare-legged
and hare-armed, with shirts thrown open
rrt tho necks, all talking, gesticulating,
und amicable; in the background tho
l-i'ity, -crumbling bastions forming a strong
i nnlrast to the houses, which are painted.
In Cuban fashion, all the colors of the
r.tinbow.  ,
Havana is a splendid ami wealthy city,
1 ut hy no means a model one. Its
si recti are dirty, tortuous, nnd narrow,
though tlie narrowness is, in some wuvs,
an advantage, us it tends to make tlio
s I'l'i'ls more shady. The accommodation
nf ill.'to,m is jioor. Augustus Sala de-
Cliu'es that it is worse off for hotels than
nny other city in the civilized world. It
hns been said tlmt in no other city is living so costly, and the tradesmen certainly
elrrtrg.; most exorbitant prices. Thoy havo
I'vi.limtlv borrowed their business habits
from Oriental lands, for however small
the purchase, they expect to bo beaten
■down, always anticipating a tussol over
tb" price. It is very unusual in Cuba to
put the nnmooitlio proprietor of a shop
over the entrance; a sign being used—
nut pictorial, as in England and America,
lint an inscription implying some ethical
allusion, such as "In Itectitud," "La In-
tegrldiiil." "La rrobidod," "La Conscien-
ciii;" a favorite sign was affixed to a shop
fur selling lucifcr matches — "La Explo-
r-ion."
Fruit is very plentiful, and of fine quality, in Cuba. Oranges aro as abundant
ns acorns in a British forest. That they
have some monetary value we may know
from tho fact that at nearly every street
corner may bo found an ornnge-vendor,
but it is infinitesimal, and in exchange
for tho smallest coin of the country, ■
hands, (rockets, nnd lint too, will be filled
■ witii tlie golden fruit.
They are never charged for in the hotel
hill, nnd a dozen will be brought to the
traveller if he but complain of thirst. A
Cuban going to a bull-fight, generally
lakes a store In a handkerchief, from
which he may refresh himself and have
n stock of missiles ready to throw at a
i owiuill v bull or an unfortunate toreadore.
In the Spanish dictionary there is positively a verb, "to pelt with oranges.1''
One pf the peculiarities of Cuba is the
■r.lnnte, nn'etjtiipijo Ity t» be found in
tiiis island, and possessing tho easiest and
most delightfully exhilarating motion.
It Is a kind of high gig with a very small
body, hung on immense springs, surmounted by a large hood. Stretched
from the hood to the apron is on awning
of some dark material to protect tho eyes
. of the occupant from the glaring sun.
The wheels are Immense, and the shafts
so exceedingly long that thero is a great
distance between the vehicle' and the
horse. To keep a volante is a sign of respectability, and the luxury which, next
to a cigar and a bull-fight, is dearest to tho
Cuban heart.
The consumption of tobacco In Cuba Is
almost incredible. Every man, woman,
and child is addicted to smoking, and
cigars play quite an important part in
■Cuban hospitality. Mr. Ballou says:
"At the faMra d'hote of an hotel it Is not
unusual to see a Cuban tako a few whiffs
of a cigarette between tho several courses,
i nml lights nre burning close at hand to
enable Iii rn to do so. If a party of gentlemen are invited to dine together, tho host
ro orders it that a packet of the finest
cigarettes is frequently passed to his
guests, with a lighted taper, in the course
of llio meal, and at Its close some favorite
brand of the more substantial cigar is
furnished to all. Tobacco is consumed
mi evory occasion, in the council-chamber,
the court, at funerals, in the domestic
circles, at feasts, and on the out-door
drives. The slave and his master, the
inaiil and her mistress, boy and man—all,
nil smoke."
The greatest cigar fnctorv of Cuba Is
that known as the Cabana, out lt is very
difficult to get a genuine "Cabana" cigar
in < 'nba, for they are so largely exported,
riigliinil takes a larger percentage than
nny other country, California comes next,
Tlicclgarettesof LaHonradee are famous,
mid certainly the proprietors seem con-
s ■inns of their merits, for on the llttlo
. Iri'oiuo-lithographcd wrapper which Bur-
rounds each bundlo of cigarettes you may
> mid tho motto: "Jfi'n heclm me jiutifi-
cdran"—"My works shall justify me."
lT|ion the sugar and tobacco plantations
1 ami In the cigar factories many Chinese
are employed. There are over two
hundred thousand of these coolies in
Cuba, who take tho place of the slaves,
mil like many other substitutes, are more
difficult tomanage and more troublesome
than tho original article. The coolies in
Culm do not maintain their national
peculiarities in so marked a degree ns
I ti. 'v do in California and in the United
States; they frequently let their hair
eriiv, adopt the West Indian habiliments,
allow themselves to be baptised, and assume Christian names.
Slavery is almost abolished in the Island.
Ily a recent edict, which each year frees
r inn slave out of every four, the year 1888
will si«.tlio Inst of slavery in Cuba. There
nro now .'100,000 free negroes In the island,
iitnl mi tbo tilth of July, 1880, tho Spanish
Parliament authorised tlie Government
tn free ss soon as possible 20,000 Cuban
slnves who still remained under the pro-
lection of their masters. The Presldont
of the Chamber of Deputies, in congratulating Parliament, declared amidst
loud applause, that this resolution was
the crowning of tho glorious work of the
abolition of slavery.
Mr. Ballou, in his recently published
history of Cuba-"Duo South," stales his
conviction that "the hope of Cuba is In
its union with,the United States:." and
mtaa—mm—sssmmammmsm
Mr, Sala has long ago. uttered the same
idea. The Spaniards have done little for
the country; slavery, corruption, 'With
tho introduction of their national and
brutal games, bull-fighting and cock-
fighting, are the chief features of their
domination. We may still truthfully
upply to the class of Spaniards settled in
Cuba the opinion expressed by Cervantes:
"The island is the refuge of the profligates
of Spain, a sanctuary of homicides, the
skulking-place for gamblers and sharpers
—a place of delusion to many, of amelioration to fow." Cnstelar has called Cuba
"the Campo Santo of tho Spanish army,"
for it is reckoned that eighty per cenL of
all the soldiers sent there have perished
on the island. -
-llarwal Treniendaiu Depth.
William Hosea Ballou says in the New
York Timet: "The mysterious and awful
depth of Niagara's canon is a fruitful subject of comment. Some portions of it are
reasonably supposed to ho bottomless.
When the railway-bridge was constructed
here, some ambitious persons attempted
to sound the canon directly beneath it.
Thoy filled a large tin pail with stones
and lowered it with a ropo. Tho current
merely played witii it. Then they took
a strong cord, attached a bar of railway
iron to it, whicli actually floated, owing
to the fierce counter currents. A few
years ago the United States Lakes' Survey
eamo here, and as recorder of Ihe survey,
I know of the remarkable data obtained.
Wo saw at onco thnt the currents would
buoy up a large sinker, and proposed to
test the smallest possible weight. We
took a lead weight in the form of a plum-
bob, weighing thirteen pounds, and attached it to a small but strong cord. Then
we scoured the services of one of the
ferry boatmen and started out into the
stream. The boatman was ordered to
row as nearly undor the falls as jwssible,
and the result will never be forgotten by
a member of the party in that skiff. As
we approached, the roar became more
and more terrible, until wo were not only
unable to hear, but the lips positively refused to open and utter a sound. For
several days afterward some of the party
were so deaf as to be u nnble to distinguish
one word from another. The lead was
cast first near tho American falls, where
bottom was found at 83 feet. Near tbo
main falls we found 100 feet of water.
Here the oarsman's strength failed, and
the little craft began to dart down stream.
At every cast of the lead the water grow
deepor, until in front of the inclined railway tho old guide and most of tho party
became terror-stricken, and refused to go
further down stream. Hore the load told
off 102 feet. We wero thou able to
compute tho dejiths lower down by simply
ascertaining the width of the stream.
Directly under tho lower bridgo the water
narrows considerably, and deepens to 210
feet. Lower down, at tho Whirlpool
rapids, the gorge becomes very narrow,
and the currents terribly fierce. Hero
tho computed depth was !K0 feet. One
place in the gorgo is still narrower, and
would exceoa a depth of 400 feet. When
the depth of water is taken i nto consideration, the height of the canon walls above
the surface must not be forgotten. These
walls range from 200 to M) feet in height,
often perpendicular, so that the deptlis of
tlie canon range from 350 to 70U feet.
~~    Extreme Etiquette.  	
In Sweden, if you address the poorest
Eerson in the street, you must lilt your
at A gentleman passing a lady ou the
stairs of a hotel must do the same. To
enter a store or bank with one's hat on is
a terrible breach of good manners. When
a train leaves a platform, or a steamboat,
or a pier, all the lookors-on lift their hats
to tho departing passengers and Ixiw to
thorn, a compliment returned by tho
travellers. In aristocratic circles in Persia, a visitor sends notice an hour or two
before calling. If the visit is one of importance, notice is sent the previous day.
As the visitor approaches the house the
servants, on foot or mounted, come forth
to meet him, and one returns with speed
to announce his coming. According to
his relative rank, the host meets him at
the foot of the staircase, at the door or at
the upper port of the room,
The question of scats is also ono requiring tho utmost circumspection in observing the various shades of rank. If
the visitor's rank is superior to that of
the host, the former is invited to occupy
a sofa alone, at the upper comer, while
the host sits on a chair or on tho floor at
the right. The left is more honorable
than the right in Persia.
For a lady to lay her hand upon a lady
friend's arm, is considered a very great
and objectionable fuuiiliiuity by an
Italian. "Never touch the person, it is
sacred," is an Italian provorb.
They have some very foolish customs
in Holland, such as that, for instance,
which compels a lady, whether alone or
accoinpaniod by other ladies, to avoid
passing a club-house or other places of
rendezvous for gentlemen. If a lady
must needs enter a confectionary store,
library, or other place where men naturally go, and finds a gentleman nr two
there, she feels compelled to retire as pro-
oijiitately as If sho had seen a ease of
smallpox. The men know this, but unless they havo finished their business
they will not retire. Tho lady retreats In
tho most undigniflod manner, ami tho
human bear finishes his book or his
chocolate, ovon though the lady is at tbo
door waiting for him to leave.
Starving Use Teeth.      	
Teeth aro lust as easily starved as tho
stomach, said a lecturer the other night.
The fact is that you and your fathom linvo
bom generation to generation been industriously starving your tooth. In one
wily it is a blessing to hnve been born of
poor parents. What food the poor givo
their children is of n variety that goes to
make strong bones and teeth. It is the
outside of tbo grains nf all cereal food
tbat contains thu carbonate and phosphate of lime, and traces of other ourtlily
salts, which nourish tho bony tissues and
build tlie frame up. If wo do not furnish to the tootle of the young that pitbu-
lum thoy require, they cannot possiMy
be built up. It is the outside of corn,
oats, wheat, barley and the dike or tho
bran, so called, that .wo sift away aud
feed to the swine, that the tooth actually
requiro for their proper nourishment
The wisdom of man has proven, his folly,
shown in every succeeding generation of
teeth, which becomo more and more
fragile and weak.

Now is tho time to keup n lookout
for your pet our. The policemen are
out on the warpntb, armed with small

without the bruss tag upon hiin, in he
goes to tlie pound. It seems that some
people are of the opinion that if they
have taken out 'a license for their dog
they are not obliged to koop the tag
on tho animal. Tho police have instructions to catch nil dogs found ttit'ft-

Lytton Square.
Editor Columbian.—The little bird
thnt leta out tho sccreta Into juBt ar-
l'ivod mill says that there aro certain
councillors in this city who nre anxious to sell Lytton Square nnd invest
the money in the purclmao of whnt is
known ns Ewen's old cannery building, and convert it into a public market. Such n Bchemo would no doubt
bo vory acceptable to the ownoraof
that old building and tilao to thoso who
own lots adjacent, but it would not be
very acceptable to those who nro directly interested in Iho general welfare and convonienco of the city. Lytton Square, as I Baid on n former occasion, should not bo sold on a pretence
whatever, but should bo kept na a public convenience between tho river
frontage and the upper part of tho
oity, and also na it publio inarkot-place.
Tho lowor part of tho oity will requiro
a market down near the mills, and it
will be tho duty of tho city fathers to
seo to it that public iritorosts aro not
barguiiicd for private avarice. 1 think
it Ts generally tho feeling that the
presont council should not undortake
anything during thoir limited oxistcnoo
exeept .trying to square up mutters so
that the ensuing council mny know
how or whoro to begiu.
