SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
The decay of organic matter has
been found by Schloesing to begin
under the influence of living organisms. Between 100° and 120°
Fahrenheit this aotion ceases, and is
succeeded by a purely chemical process of slow combustion, which increases rapidly with the temperature.
The ancient therapeutic method of licking the cornea, a*
dogs lick the eyes of thSif
puppies, is still a popular remody in
Greece. Dr. Gostomiris, of Athens,
was lately induced to try it in a
number of serious coses of eye-diseases, and reports marvellously successful results.
A New Astroloov.—A new
method of weather prediction hat
been discovered by Oh. Montigny,
a French physicist. He hu observed that the scintillations of stars increase before many storms, indicating disturbance of the upper atmosphere hours beforo the meteorological instruments show any change.
The fiercer the storm the more is the
strength of the scintillations increased.
What is said to be a satisfactory
substitute forthe high-priced gum
acacia is prepared by Trojanowski
by treating the mucilage of flax-seed
with sulphuric acid; and another,
lately patented in Germany by Schumann, is made from starch. The
euphorbia gum, a peculiar African
resin, is coming into extensive use
as a substitute for, or addition to,
caoutchouc, whose quality is even
claimed to be improved by mixture
with the cheaper gum.
Railways and Rainfalls;--Tho
laying of the. Mexico Central Railroad has been attended by some
curious meteorological phenomena.
With the advance of the line, waterspouts have appeared and inflicted
great damage, while the rainfall has
increased. These results are supposed to be due to some attractive
force exerted by the great mass cf
metal in the rails and telegraph
wires, and are attracting considerable scientific attention.
A Bold Project.—A Swiss engineer has submitted a plan for
supplying Paris with pure water
from the lako of Noufchatel, at a
cost of $100,000,000. The proposed
aqueduct would be 313 miles in
length, including a tunnel twenty-
two miles long under the Jura Mountains. The lake is 1620 feet above
the orverugq of Parisian streets, and
it is believed that power sufficient
for all the industries of the French
capital could be furnished in addition to potable water.
A New Material for Boats,—
Navigators in Central Africa know
that boats of iron and steel quickly
corrode in tropical waters, while
those of wood are attacked by white
ants. A missionary sooiety has
therefore built a steam-canoe for
Lake Nyassa of the comparatively
new alloy known as Delta Metal,
which resists corrosion, is light, and
as strong us steel. The vessel is
twenty-one feet long, with a beam
of seven feet and a depth of three
feet, and draws only sixteen inches
of water with engine ahd boiler on
board.
Welding by Electricity.—Two
methods of joining metals by electricity ure now practiced. In that
of Prof. Elihu Thomson, whioh is
especially applicable to the uniting
of tubes, rods, wires, etc., a very
heavy current is passed between the
two metals, when the great resistance of the point of contact causes
it to become quickly hoated and
welded, In the process of M. Ber-
mulos, tlio liimt of the olectric aro is
used, the junction of the metals
forming one polo and a rod of carbon,
readily applied to any point desired,
tho other, The first method is said
to be surer und more easily controlled, and the second is capable of
wider application.
Cotton.—Tliough known from
prehistoric times, the use of cotton
for cloth did not become general
until after the first successful
American cultivation of the fibre in
1700. Jn 1791 the world's yield
wns 400,000,000 pounds, and that
of the United States 2,000,000
pounds. Nine,! thon the American
development of the industry has
been stupendous, the present production of the United States being
six times as great as that of the
whole world a century ago, and its
homo consumption being equal to
the world's product fifty yeara ago.
It has been calculated that, with
the appliances of 1790, the manufacture of the world's cotton in 1826
would have occupied about 60,-
000,000 people, while it would require 300,000,000 persons atthe
present time.

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
A FBIEHIILr IIESSAOI!.
LoNliriN, Juno 26.—To-day tiro Czar
met General Vou Pope, who was sorrt to
tho ltusslriu court to announce tire accession of tiro Kinpcrm- William to tlio
throno of Germany, He was received
with great ceremony as tlio incsarigc-
bearer of the king, ami was .afterwards
the chief among the guests ut a state dinner given at the Peterhof Palace. The
letter announcing tlie Iiniiieror Williani'i
accession was written in Kussian aud re
calls to the Czar the words of the old
Kaiser William whon, on his deatli-beil,
he urged his successors to maintain
friendship with Kussia. The letter was
very friendly in its tone and ooints to a
polioy of alliance with the (W for the
mutual interests or Russia and Germany.
Political Europe is anxiously awaiting
the outcome of tbe royal visit, anil some
wise heads pretend to see as the result of
it a bond between the emperors which
presages no good for Austria or Hun.

The crop prospects this year for
British Columbia ure most encouraging. Reports coming in from the
various districts from time to time
show that the yield in hay, grain,
and other crops may fairly be expected to be almost, unprecedented.
The refreshing rains of this month
have proved to be worth thousands
of dollars to the farmers, and to the
country generally, for the prosperity
of ono njeain the welfare of tho
other, The high water,did not, as
was at one time feared, injure the
crops at all, being checked, by the
very rains whioh have proved such n
positive blessing as well. In Manitoba and the Northwest, too, present indications all point to an abundant harvest In eastern Canada
the outlook is not so good, and, owing to cyclones, storms, and Hoods
in many sections of the United
States, the crop outlook there cannot
be said to be favorable on the whole.
Wheat has already gone up in price
on account of the poor prospects of
the crops in the states, and of course
all this gives the successful producer
in Manitoba, tbe Northwest, and
British Columbia the advantage of a
ready market with high figures.
Farmers in these sections should do
extraordinarily well this year, but
the consumer will have to pay higher
for his breadstuff's.
It is to be hoped that nobody will
be so unfeeling as to send n copy of
Wednesday's Colonist to the Imperial authorities in old England,, especially at the present time, when
they are sufficiently worried over
the Irish question, and have just
discovered that their defences, naval
and military, are worm-eaten, so that
Boulanger, the Csar, or Germany's
new war lord, oould just waltz in
and scalp the entire royal family and
the houae of lords and telescope the
Bank of England. The following
sentence, from a leading article under the heading "Two Loans," in
the Colonist of the date mentioned
above, would, wo fear, cause such a
panic in the mother oountry—coming as it would on the heels of other
misfortunes—as would send wheat
np so high that it would never come
down again. Our cotemporary, in
the article referred to, waxes eloquent over the approaching election
in Victoria district. He hus allowed
his Pegasus to lift him clear into the
realm of hyperbole, and, having
occasion to refer to a matter of recent history,, he treats it in the same
elevated style. Speaking of the
" terms of union," he says: " Instead of the railway being finished
in ten years, as agreed, it was not
completed until five years later, successive governments toying with the
scheme until the angry remonstrances of British Columbia threatened die permanency of the empire!"
What does the Colonist talk that
way for} If wo are a "holy terror"
we dont want everybody to know it.
We want the Imperial government
to furnish this province with proper
defences. But how will they know
when we'll be "taken the same way,"
if they should happen to see this article in the Colonist t Instead of
furnishing us with fortifications, big
guns, ships, and garrisons, to be
used whenever we chance to " get
on our car," in shattering the empire, they are a great deal mora likely now to call in all our shot guns
and other small arms, so that we
will not be able even to take a pop
at the saucy bluejay that devastates
our gardens.
Saturday (to-morrow) is tlie day
which will decide whether tho Colonist or the Times shall be able to
cry exultantly, "I told you sol"
and, incidentally, the day on whioh
the electors of Victoria district shall
practically record their preference
for Mr. Tolmie, the government candidate, or Mr. Mcllmoyl, the opposition standard bearer. The election
was necessitated by the resignation
of Mr. John to accept the warden-
ship of the provincial gaol at Victoria, an appointment whioh the Victoria press generally has commended,
either actively or passively. Mr,
John had been a government supporter: the government naturally desire to have bis place in the house
filled by one like-minded, and Mr.
James Tolmie, an estimable young
man, it would appear, in many respects, hu beon brought out. The
vacancy, and consequent by-election,
gavo the opposition a chance to make
a ran and try to score one. Like
all oppositions, they think the country will never be safe until they get
into power, so they take advantage
of the opportunity afforded, and
back Mr. Mcllmoyl against the government man. Nothing, it appears,
if urged against the opposition candidate, either, in so far as his standing and character is concerned, but
the Colonist declares that the moment lie enters politics he becomes
demoralized ao that his best friends
wouldn't know him, or words to
that effect Aa the Vancouver
Herald uys in ita last issue, editorially, " Not much reliable information
ia to be obtained from the Victoria
papers respecting the two candidates.
* * * Some information outside
of this source would be necessary before an intelligent opinion could be
formed resptrtting the qualifications
of the gentlemen for the position."
lie Herald, very properly, we think,
commenting further, calls in question
the validity and morality of the
Colonist's pleadings that the election
should turn, on the .'(dollar nnd,
cent view of, the (question," pr, in
other words, that the constituency,
having the pleasing vision of benefits to accrue before its eyes, should
vote for the party (the man only incidentally) having the patronage at
its disposal. While reprehensible,
this is an obliquity which is almost
inseparable from government,, by
party, and will be found operating in
a greater or less degree wherever the
electoral franchise is exercised. It
has come to bo generally acknowledged as a truism that tbe party
in power always has the advantage
of the patronage of the country at
its back in an eleotion contest. But,
while tacitly understood, it would be
just as well to modestly refrain from
llauntiug this somewhat compromising fact in tho faces of sensitive and naturally honorable people,
But, apart from all theso questions
of the personal fitness of candidates
nnd the means taken for their return by partisan newspapers, there
is the question of the general policy
of the government, which, everything else being equal, should determine to a large extent the result of
an election. It is the duty of electors to be able to give an intelligent
judgment on these questions at the
polls.
The subtle agent that precedes the
thunder clap, flashes intelligences
across continents, illuminates cities,
and is constantly widening the scope
of its operations, is soon, according
to appearances, to usurp the time-
honored hemp as a means of extinguishing the vital spark of those
whom society has adjudged to be
unlit to live. The state legislature
of New York, the empire state of
the republic, has passed an act providing for execution by electricity.
The act has been sanctioned by Governor Hill, and has now becomo the
law of the state. Various opinions
are expressed as to the advantages
and disadvantages of the new
method of execution. The Buffalo
Express is horrified nt the introduction of electricity in capital punishment. It says: " But killing instantly is only one of the things that
electricity will do. It will paralyze.
It will disfigure for life. It will
turn a brainy man into a drivelling
idiot. It will make blind men and
and deaf men. There is no need to
catalogue tho effects of electricity
upon the human system. Tbey are
many and dreadful. They are uncertain and puzzling. And they
differ in their effects upon different
organizations. What would kill one
man might only paralyze another,
completely or partially cripple still
another. But this is not the worst
of it. Tho new method is introduced
in the interest of humanity -such is
the claim. Is it humane to place
nervous, ignorant, possibly superstitious men in a waiting attitude
towards this mysterious agent which
Edison himself does not understand .
Oould nerves be stretched upon a
more cruel rack than this! Mankind is used to banging us a means
of execution. All of its processes
and effects are understood,. It is
awful enough, God knows; but is
not the fear of the unknown, invisible and silent electricity more awful still I " The New York Graphic,
after showing the absurdity of the
fear that men may be maimed, disfigured, or paralyzed, without being
killed, for the reason that a strong
enough current can be used in every
instance to kill instantly without
fail, adds: " No stronger argument
in favor of electricity as the agent
for carrying out the extreme penalty
of the law could be advanced than
that which the Express advances itself. The very object of an execution is to make it awful—to invest
it with a dreud, a terror that shall
be a constant menace, a Damocloan
sword hanging over the evil-doer. If
olectrioity shall accomplish this and
make death in that form so terrible
that crimo shall be lessened, thon it
will hnvo accomplished wonders."
Tho Colonist ot a lato dato, writing
on this subject, cites Now York
journals to tho effect that condemned
murderers havo already boen interviewed us to their preferences, and
their answers are unanimously in
favor of the now method, for the
reasons that death would be instantaneous and also less disgraceful and
disfiguring than by hanging. Looking at the subject in this light, the
Colonist very naturally expresses the
fear that, by tho new method, " the
deterrent effect which capital pun-
punishment is intended to have on
the criminal classes moy be in a
large measure lost." But we have
already seen what a vast difference
of opinion has been expressed upon
this question.

In Experience of a Funny Mau ot Washington.
I will Mow return to the barber simp. It;
vas a plain structure, with beautiful sar-
laparilla pictures heve.in-1 there on tbe
rails and a faintodor of rancid pomatum
ind overworked hair restoratives.
There wore threo chairs richly upholstered in two-ply carpeting of aome inflam-
■natory hue, with large vines aud the kind
>f flowers which grow ou carpets but no-
ivhere else.
I have seen blossoms woven into ingrain
:arpets, varying ln color from a dead
jlack to the color of a hepatimllung, but
[have never seen ono that reminded me
)f anything I ever saw in nature.
The chair I sat in also bad springs in it.
They were mado of selections from tho
Washington Monument.
The barber who waited ou me asked me
f I wanted a shave. A groat many barters ask me this during the year. Some-
iuies they do it from habit nnd sometimes tbey do It to brighten up my life
ind bring a smile to my wan check. As I
lave no hair, the thinking mind naturally
nnd bya direct course of reasoning arrives at tbe conclusion that when I go
Into a barber shop and climb into a chair,
[do so for the purpose of getting shaved
ind not with tho idea of having my fortune told or my deposition taken. Still
barbers continue to ask mu this question
ind look at each other with ill-concealed
Birth.
I said yes I would liko a shave unhss be
preferred to take my temperature, or
amuse me by making a death -.paste of
himself. He then began to strap a large
razor with a doulila-shuffie movement
ind to size me up nt the same time.
He was a colored man, but lie had lived
lu Washington a long timo andkuewn
"treat deal more than he would if his lot
lad fallen elsewhere. Me spoke with some
feeling and fed ine with about the most
in pal at able lather I think I ever participated in.      •
He also did an odd thing when he went
or tbe Becond time over my face*. I never
lave noticed the custom outside of that
hop.   Most barbers, in making tboscc-
iid trip over u customer's face, moisten
ne side at a timo with a sponge or tho
mphandasthey-gi'iiloiig,-bnt fn this
Iuto a large quantity of lat her Wa**. put In
ny car, and as hu uceded it. he toojc ouf
hat lie required frum lime loti me, using
la finger liken paint brush amtppve&tUrig
n the lather as ho went along.
So accurately has he learned to measure
ha quantity of lather an car,will hold
Jiat when be got through with me aud I.
'•eut away there was not over a table-
poonful in either ear and possibly not
hat much.—New York World.
TURNING THE ROFIS.
he Way A Girl Ii Mnde To Perform This
l.'ntlkpd Duty.
Tho wfcj ft girl io made to turn the ropo
this:
Whero several glrla nro playing Uio ono
ho trips must take her turn at. tlio rope,
'his is a great test of ii giri'.- !*-mper. If
ho doesn't "play fair" she will deny 16
rhen she trips. Then the other girls get
nad, and they won't, play, or they put her
iiit of the game for cheating. Then she
earns the valuo of I njith.
* If she Is not, caught in lying, however,
he is very apt to try il, again, ami may in
me become ah adept at sly lying. But
Ve chances are that tho other little girls
vill find her out if sbe does not lib with
rent skill and discernment.
Truly, it is a very great temptation to a
(tie girl to toll 'Tories under such drums tmices, hut like all other templa-
"ous, it is one that, a good little girl will
earn to resist. She will take her end of
,he rope with resignation when her turn
omes.
Most littlo girls can persuade parents or
'latins to purchnso for them at the toy
ores nlco jumping "ropes with neatly
n-ned wooden handles.  But, when such
Kiies are not to be had, bad little girls
ve been known to steal parts of their
-.others' olothes lines.
When a littlo girl who has cnt a clothes
ue falls and gets hurt, shots apt to bo
oked upon as the victim of a special
iovidenco, Yet it must be admitted
,:irt ninny good girls who are not skillful
ten trip and fall, so that the final cause
(.tipping is still a bono of contention
uoug both philosophers and theologians.

The Great. Antiquity of  tho  Homely

Tbo derivation .of tliis word Is very Interesting as of such an ancient date Is Its
origin..

iheco-t-i of Malabar at Calicut, or moro
properly KfUa tthoda, "City ot tho Black
Goddess."    '
Calicut was at that period not only a
very anci:nt seaport, but an,extensive
terrltoiy, which, stretching along tho
•western coast; of Southern India, reached
from Bon'iliuy and the adjacent islands to
Crtpo Coiiiorln. .
it was at nn early period so fanionsfor
Its weaving aud dyeing of col toil cloth
that its name became identified with the
manufactured fabric, whence tho name
calico. It is now generally admitted that
. this ingenious art originated In India hi
remote ages, aud from that country found
its way to Egypt.
It was not until tbemlddleof the seven
tcenth century thut calico printing was
introduced Into Europe. A knowledge of
tbe art was acquired by some of tho ser*.
rants of tbe Butch Enst India Company
nnd carried to Holland, wheuteit was in-.
trod need In London in the year 1076,
It is surprising for grown-up children,
as well as our young folks, to learn that
"Pliny as early os the flrst century mentions iu his natural history that there existed I n Egypta wonderful method of dyeing white cloth." *,_«. • -
' Calico cannot be despised when tt boasts
of such antiquity. The shoddy make-up
of tho present day may look down with

During the vacation it would be well
for the school trustees to strain a point
and liayo the publio school thoroughly
cleaned and whitewashed. Visitors at
the examinations woro somewhat
shocked at the exceedingly dirty condition of the walls and floors and not a
few, who happened to lean against the
wall, carried away an excellent sample
of educational dnst and dirt, On enquiry it wu learned the floors have not
been wuhed for 3 years—a shocking
state of affairs. We hope this matter
will be token up and the school put in
a proper state of cleanliness before the
holidays come to a close.

Mr. R. L. Cawston, of Somilkameon,
arrived in the city yesterday having
brought the first band of cattle, for
this season, across Hope Mountain.
Mr. Cawston reports cattle in Semil-
kameen and adjacent districts to be in
splendid condition. The grass is better than usual this year and crops are
excellent. Mr. Cawston intends marketing 1200 head of cattle beforo the
season oloses. The bands will be
brought to the coast, by tho Hopo
Mountain trail, at intervals of about
two weeks. Nothing worthy of special
note has occurred of late in Semilka-
meen; miners are prospecting the country with varying success and farmers
and ranchers are prosperous and contented.
Hundreds of peoplo visited H. G.
MoMicken's office Saturday .and Sunday to look at the specimens of gold
quartz he brought back from the location of the Ontario Mining Co., of
whioh he ia manager. The specimens
are of decomposed quarts containing
usually large quantities of free gold.
He estimates the value of the quartz at
from 85,000 to $20,000 a ton and says
he picked up the specimen. His company waa formed for the purpose of
prospecting only and they do not intend to develop any of their mines,
but to sell mines on their land, of
whioh they have a large tract situated
on the shore pf tho Lake of the Woods,
7 miles from Hat Portage. The lead
from whioh the specimens shown were
takon is not the only one on the property but there are sevoral others with
ores whioh have assayed from fifty to
seventy-five dollars a ton.—Winnipeg

Ths Hicks-Sawyer-Westminster base
ball match yesterday afternoon afforded almost as muoh amusement to the
publio as the performance given ou
Thursday night. Front the first it wm
evident that though the darkies could
shine on the stage, on the diamond they
wero not so brilliant as their opponents. Some of the play was very
amusing and created much fun to the
lookers-on. Things went vory badly
with the Hicks-Sawyers until their
captain ordered all hands to put on
thtir plug hats. The change for the better was instantaneous. The batting and
running improved and the darkles, by
superhuman efforts and a little kindness on the part of Westminster, scored two runs. Westminster played a
good game but did not find it necessary
to put in their beat licks and could
have rlhut out the "colored folks" had
they wished to aot unkindly. The following is the score;—

The examination of the high school
commenced this afternoon at 2 o'clook,
A large number of visitors were present, the majority of whom were ladies.
Mr. H. M. Stramberg B. A., examined
the school on algebra, botany, Latin,
Greek, bookkeeping, grammar, and
many other subjects. The results of these examinations wero
exceedingly satisfactory, and the
excellent work the high school
is accomplishing was made more apparent than ever. Essays were read by
Min Robinson, Miss Millard, Miu
Humor, Miss Edith Robinson snd Miu
Keith. Miu Homer's essay deserves
special mention, it being novel in
character and sparking with bright and
original thoughts. Itev. Mr. White
announoed that Miss Homer was tht
gold medalist for this yesr, and complimented that young lady on her application and succeu. Tho rev. gentleman then presented rolls of honor
to Jamea Rankin for proficiency,
John James Guest for punctuality, and
Blanche Millard for deportment. It
may be said for the proficiency of the
Westminster high school that the
number of marks obtained, on regular subjects, by the pupils were
muoh greater than the number obtained by the Viotoria high sohool.
Mr. Stramberg is certainly entitled
to much credit fur placing his school
at the top of Ihe list. Addresses were
made by Mr. W. B. Townsend, Rev.
Mr, White, Mr. M. Sinclair, Mr. Jno.
MoKenrie, Mr. Wilson, Col.McGregor
and Mr. Jaok, of Now Brunswick. After thanking the visiiors for their nt
tendance Mr. Stramberg dismissed the
school. , .

The land-owners of Surrey flats and
of the S. E. part of the South Arm,
held a very special and sparkling meeting at the Surrey tuwn hall on Monday last. Some lively tilts occurred
during tha meeting and a few of the
lovers of the "manly art" endeavored
to relieve the monotony of the proceedings by engaging in an old fashioned
"set to." This, of course, was not
permitted by the peace society, a few
of whioh body were present The meeting was held to consider tho dyking
■cheme. Mr. A. J. Hill 0. E., who
was present, submitted a plan to dyke
the two rivers separately. It was
thought advisable, beforo proceeding
further, to have a line for a dyke Bur-
voyoi from Blaokio's spit to tho .'west
bank of Oliver's elough. Suflicient
money was subscribed for tho expenses,
and the survey will bo made shortly.
(tiaiinrl Improvements.
Tho engineer selected by the board
uf trade, to establish the points in the
new channel from where the official
survey of the channel is to be taken,
has completed his work, and the official
survey will probably be made next
weok by Oapt. Lewis, from a gentleman who has had an opportunity of
noticing the channel improvements,
we learn that the tier of mattrassea,
sunk across the old channel laat fall,
lias dono far better work than was anticipated. The silt has accumulated
against the upper side of the raattrai-
ees, as high as the top, thus forming
nn embankment such as was hoped
would be the result of the work. The
top of the tier is now dry at low tide.
It is now certain that four feet more
water will be found in the shallowest
part of the channel than vas found at
the last survey. Tide guagos have
been set out at various poiuta for the
purpose of making the survoy ns perfect as possible. Tho guages will in*
dicate the exact stage of the tide which
will enable the depth, at each sounding, to be accurately ascertained.
The necessity of an official survey is
evory day becoming more urgent.
When tho Puritan left Port Townsend
the captain was laughed at, and told
his vessel would never reach Westminster. Capt. Hendrix procured au
American tug whioh towed the Puritan
to the mouth of the old channel and
there left the veesel, the aouth channel
being the only safe ouo indicated on
tho admiralty charts. The admiralty
chart, indicating the Fraser River,
dates back to 18G8 and no revision of it
has boen made since. When the south
channel was blocked it seems no "notice to mariners1, was given, and, consequently, the Port Townsend pilots
oould scarcely be expected to become
aware of tho change by instinct. The
new channel was opened 3 years ago,
and since then almost all vessels have
entered and left the.river by it. There
seems to havo been great neglect on
the part of somebody that the change
hns not been made public, officially.
When the new survey is made we hope
prompt steps will be taken to have the
soundings recorded un the admiralty
chart, or, if this cannot be done, we
think thnt if proper representations
are made to the Dominion government
the Admiralty would order soundings
to be taken by one of the naval oflicers
stationed at Esquimalt.

Shnll We Have Water?
Editor Cokuhbiax.—A good many
people who have the interest of this city
at heart are quite disappointed at the
apparent determination of the council to
do nothing ttua year towards securing an
efficient system of water works. It is
admitted by all that this is one of the
moat important questions now pressing
upon publio attention, and that the consideration of it cannot with safety be
postponed. Wi* tre constantly threatened with death from imperfect sewerage
and unwholesome water, and iu danger
of suffering serious loss from fires because
our appliances for meeting a great conflagration are unequal to our necessities.
There seems to he no room to doubt that
one of the results of a first-lass system
of water works would be a material re*
duotion in the rate of insurance. If this
reduction should be equal to that which
has followed the erection of similar
works elsewhere, It would actually
amount to more than the sum aaked by
the Coquitlam Water Co. for the supply
it proposes to givo us. according to its
last offer to the counoil. Wo should,
therefore, not only be getting an abundant supply of pure water without additional expense, but would be actual gainers from a financial point of •view. Inasmuch as every person now carrying an
insurance on his property carries himself
a risk equal to the difference between the
amount of his policy and the value of the
property. Much of the opposition to
tbe proposed water tax comes from persons who have no personal Interest iu the
business part of the oity. Tho>ewho
own vacant lots off the business streets,
for instance, think that there will be no
return at all for the extra rate. This is
a mistake, On the top of the hill it costs
a great deal to sink t well—sometimes
hundreds of dollars—and before these
lots oan be made to return any profit to
their owners a well must be dug and a
pump provided. This expense would be
saved If we had water works, and by so
much would the valuo of the lots be increased. Many people would greatly
prefer to reside on the MU, but are prevented because of the look of water.
Many of those who do reside there, and
have spent large sums of money In wells,
find themselves compelled to draw upon
their neighbors during the dry season.
Those who live nearer the business streets
■re moro fortunate In procuring water;
hut they oome also into' contact with a
new danger—the danger of deadly disease
from the .impurities which It is often
impossible to kwpoutof the wells. Thoae
impurities sre beooiftthg eVW*/ jim- fflof*
threatening as the population of the city
i>_»_______-____-g-E9MI
Increased. They permeate the toil everywhere down to the Concrete, and flowing
along this ther land in tbe wells from
which we drink. Every physician in
Westminster knows tbat two of the chief
causes of disease at certain seasons of tho
year are had water and bad drainage; and
it is no secret that these causes havo scat
some of our most respected citizens to
untimely graves, The establishment of
a first-class scheme of water works, such
as that offered by the Coquitlam company,
would effectively remove these dangers,
by giving every house au abundant
supply of pure water, and putting us in
possession of the means of thoroughly
cleansing our sewers. It would likewise
furnish protection against fire such as
very few cities in the world can hope to
enjoy. There is a very widely-prevailing
opinion that the city should own its own
water works; and so it should, if it is
ablo to assume the financial responsibility. It might bo said that every person
ought to own the house in which ho lives;
but a great many people are forced to
live iu rented houses. Has the council
ever offered to buy the franchise held by
the Coquitlam Co.? or is it expected that
the company, after expending thousands
of dollars in securing that valuable franchise, will surrender It without compensation? The Coquittlam scheme seems
to be the only one available that will
meet the requirements of the city. Others
have beeu proposed and discussed, bnt
could not be entertained. If the corporation cannot acquire the rights of the
company upon equitable terms, there
seems to be no way. out of the difficulty
but to accept the company's proposal
which, after all, is not unreasonable, for
it gives the corporation the right of purchase after ten years, on an equitable
basis. If there are any of our citizens
who suppose that by declining to take
any action whatever they will secure tbe
water works without cost, they, are
greatly mistaken. The charter of tbe
Coquitlam Co. gsves it power to go on
with its works, and lay pipes everywhere
through the streets of our oity without
asking the council's consent. If it decides to go on with the scheme without
agreement with the city, it will have
power to put a tax on all water used for
nre purposes, for flushing sewers, or for
watering streets, such as may make the
citizens wish for all time to come that its
reasonable offer had been accepted} and
however rapidly the company's revenues
may increase when our city has grown to
be the provincial metropolis, it may refuse utterly to entertain any proposal
which would give the city a share in
these revenues. It is to be hoped our
citizens will not permit this matter to
pass beyond the fullest consideration,
and there is reason for believing tltat if
action is taken at all In the direction indicated, it must be taken without much
loss of time. Hydrant.
