At a meeting of Riolnnoiid  municipal council, held at the Town
Hall on the 4th inst., at whioh there
were present  tho  reeve   (Thomas
Kidd) and Councillors Youdall, Quigley, Reid, and Beckman,  the committee appointed at last meeting reported as follows:   "Your committee appointed to confer with a committee appointed by the council of
the city of Vancouver in order to
unite with them to draw the attention of the provincial government to
the increasing and urgent need of a
means of direct communication to
connect this and municipalities south
of ub with the city of  Vancouver,
with a view of inducing  them   to
undertake the .construction of roads
and bridges for that purpose, beg to
report as follows:   That they reached Vancouver on tha 27th ult., being unable to get there beforo on account  of inclement weather; that
they were cordially received by his
worship Mayor  Oppenlieimcr and
his committee and were  afforded a
meeting at which some of the aldermen other than those  of the delegation were present; after some preliminary questions were asked and
answered Mayor Oppenheimer stated that he had in his inaugural address referred to  the   necessity  of
such work and the mutual benefit
that would result therefrom; that he
had every reason to believe Vancouver would do her share of the
needed work by building a  bridge
across False  Greek  and  roads to
connect therewith, to the southern
boundary of the city limits; that the
C.P.R. Co. had agreed to continue
such road through its lands to the
southern boundary; and he expressed
a belief founded on promises made
by members of the cabinet to this
city through its board of trado that
the  provincial government   would
aid largely in the work necessary to
complete the connection  required.
His worship and other members of
his committee pointed out to  your
committee the  great  benefit that
would occur  to  this municipality
from the completion of such works
and expressed a hope that the people of Richmond would not   remain
inactive, hut would proceed to raise
a sum of money to aid the  government iu constructing bridges across
the North Arms of the Fraser and
to build roads within their municipality to connect therewith.    Your
ootnmittee, on  being  asked what
they thought could be done in this
direction, replied that they had some
grounds for believing that the  electors would vote for a loan of  $10,-
000 to go towards the construction
of bridges across the North Arms of
the Fraser and a loan of $20,000 or
thereabouts for improvements within the municipality, and entertained
hopes that the provincial  government would undertake the work of
building the desired bridges when
the above sum  of $10,000   to aid
the undertaking  was  tendered   to
them by the corporation of  Richmond.   In answer to your committee's request that  the  council   of
Vancouver send a delegation to  accompany thorn to Victoria to   interview the government respecting the
matter in hand, his worship replied
that as the city of   Vancouver had
already   memorialized the  government  in   regard   to   such   works
through its board of trade, and that
as his council did not meet until the
evening of the 30th ult, and therefore could not appoint delegates Ire-
fore that time, he thought it inexpedient to delay your committee until that time, and, that it would   be
well for your committeo to proceed
without  such   delegation.     Your
committee proceeded thence to Vic
toria, and on the 30th ult. called on
the Hon. Jno,  Robson, provincial
secretary, by whom they were kindly and immediately allowed an   interview; und on stating to him the
object of their mission Mr. Robson
said that, as before  stated by him
on previous occasions to the electors
of Richmond, the government would
in all probability aid largely in constructing bridges across tho North
Anns of the Fraser River, and he
believed if the corporation made a
move in the right direction  lo help
themselves the government would
not Ire found indifferent to the   urgent requirements of suoh nn important section of the country; that if
the municipality raised ono half of
the estimated cost of such bridges
the govornment, he thought, would
be supported by a   majority of the
house in voting a sum to meet' the
other half of the cost of such works.
With reference to the   maintenance
of the same he said he was not in a
position to encourage a belief on tho
part of the people of Richmond that
the government   would   undertake
the maintenance of them; but, as the
government had contributed largely
in many cases towards the maintenance of public works irrespective of
municipal boundaries, he believed
in case of accident or extreme need,
they would aid liberally  in  repairing such works.   The hon. provincial secretary   kindly accompanied
your committee to the office of tbe
hon. the chief commissioner of lands
and works   by   whom   they   were
courteously   received.     The latter
gentleman expressed himself in favor
of the government  aiding liberally
towards   opening  up  the  desired
means   of  communication.     Your
committee had also the good fortune
to meet Messrs. Orr and  Ladner,
members   from   this  distriot, and
both of these gentlemen expressed
their willingness to earnestly support  any  measure  that  may   be
brought before the house forthe furtherance  of  the proposed   works.
The result of your committee's   mission upon themselves has been   to
impress them with the belief that
everything seems propitious for the
attainment of  the   desired  object,
and that it only requires united action
on the part of  this corporation to
lead to success.     All of   which  is
most respectfully submitted by your
committee, (signed) Thomas Kidd,
Hugh  Youdall."    On  motion  of
Coun. Quigley, seconded by Coun.
Beckman, the report was  adopted,
A petition signed by W.  N.   Draper, H. Elliott, A. Peers, J. Stevens,
8. Fletcher and J. Haggman asking
the council to  appropriate money
for the extension of the road on the
south side of Quigley's eastward  to
a terminus on the North Arm,  was
laid over for consideration.    The
names of all the  councillors   were
placed on the board of works. Moved by Coun. Youdall, seconded   by
Ooun.  Reid,   "Whereas,  necessity
has arisen for direct communication
from Lulu and Sea Island to Vancouver,   and,   whereas,  two  draw
bridges will be required, one from
Lulu to Sea Island  and  one  from
Sea Island to the mainland, for the
purpose aforesaid; be it,   therefore,
resolved that the clerk be instructed to communicate with the Hon.
Geo. K. Foster, minister of marine
and fisheries, and also with D. Ohisholm, Esq., M.P.   for  this district,
making application for permission
to erect said  bridges; also  that a
copy of this resolution be forwarded
to the Hon. the chief commissioner
of lands and works, requesting him
to assist in furthering tho  scheme,
by  recommending  the   Dominion
government to grant the application.
Carried.   Coun. Youdall gave notice
that at next meeting he will introduce a by-law to raise  by   way   of
loan the sum of $30,000 for the purpose of constructing roads  in   the
municipality and towards the  construction of  bridges,     On motion
the rules of order   wero suspended,
and the council adjourned to meet
on Saturday the 18th inst.

THE EXTBADinoN T11K.1IV.
Washington, Feb. 8.—An important statement was obtained to-day
from Mr. Belmont, chairman i f the
committee on foreign ulf.iirs, in regard tu the pending treaty wilh Great
Britain. Mr. Belmont said aa the
matter hnd been so widely discuss, d
through tho papers, he iho rght it <>n y
just trr the adininistrntion thnt it
should bo kiMwn that no clnune permitting the extradition of citizens of
the United Slates for any political
offense was included iu the treaty sent
to tho Senate. If there was any such
provision now under considerarien, it
must hnve been inserted us an amendment in the Sennto. Ho repeated em-
phnticrlly that there wus no clause in
the treaty us subinittcd to tho Sennto
whieh surrenders any right which this
government has always upheld, nor
was there any promise whieh could be
construed ns permitting a surrender
on account uf political offenses.
A PANIC AND  tOSS OF UtS.
Kansas Citv, Feb. 9.—The leyer of
a grip car on the cable road here)
broke last evening just as the grip was
attached and the coach passed over the
edge of the hill. The can flew down
the incline at a terrible rate of speed
and struck another train standing at
the bottom in the depot. The crash
caused a panic in the crowded depot
and mon, women and ohildren were
crushed in the awful jam. So far aa
is known the luss of life iB confined to
three persons, neither of whom were
killed outright; but the injured numbers at least 100, and ' it is thought
several of these will die.
ANOTHER INJUSTICE TO IRELAND.
London, Feb. 9.—The St. James
Gazette publishes a rumor that the
government intend to move probably
to-day that the Irish memben who
have been convicted under the coercion act will be held disqualified to lit
in parliament. The Queen's speech is
to express the tory idea of having thii
a purely English session, which is to
hare nothing to Bay about Ireland and
is to be occupied solely with matters
concerning railway rates and the revision of parish boundaries.
THE EXTRADITION TREATY.
Washington, Feb. 9.—The foreign
relations committee has proposed an
amendment to make more pacifio an
article in the British extradition treaty
prescribing " malicious injury to property, by which lives of persons are en*
dangercd " as one of the offenses for
whioh extradition shall be granted.
Senator Riddleberger regards the
amendment al aimed more directly at
the Irish American political offenders,
Great Britain dynamiters, etc., and he
believes that the publio should be informed of what is proposed and of the
position taken by the senators in regard to it. Monday's executive session
ib understood to have been devoted
mainly to efforts to convince Riddleberger tnat the amendment is not subject to the interpretation placed upon
it by him.

San Francisco, Feb. 9.—The load
transcontinental officials are of the
opinion thut the Canadian Paoific Railway is responsible for the action of thi
Canadian government refusing to al*
low wheat from Manitoba to be shipped in bond over American lines to the
Atlantic seaboard. This is quite a
contrast to the privilege accorded th*
Canadian Pacific road of shipping California freight in bond to any city in
the eastern part of the U. S. They
say there are about eight or ten million
bushels of wheat in Manitoba that
must be moved to Atlantic porta and
that the Canadian Pacific cannot mot*
it fast enough. Up to the present
time it had moved about four million
bushels and wanted te handle the rest
without letting any of it go over lines
via St. Paul and Chicago, The gentlemen entertaining this opinion believe
in the principle of tit for tat and think
the Canadian Pacific's bond privilege
on tho Pacific coast business should be
cut off.
THIS MORNING'S DESPATCHES
KNIFTON CHALLENGES SULLIVAN.
London, Fob. 9. The Sporting Life
to-day has a challenge to Sullivan from
Jack Knifton, in which he says: " I
shall bo glad to accept £200 to stand
in front of Mr. Sullivan six rounds, or
in the alternative, to fight him in tho
prist ring for £200 a sido, this amount
being the limit of my resources nt the
bank at the present time. With reference to the challenge issued to
Smith I will, with Mr. Sullivan's permission, accept the same In Smith's
place and fight him within 14 days after the fight with Mitchell."
THIS  AFTEBNOOVS DESPATCHES.
THE CHINESE EXCLUSION THEATT.
Washington, Feb. 9.— Chairman
Belmont, of the houso of foreign relations committee, said in reply to the
question this morning: "Isn't it true
that a treaty has been submitted tothe
Chinese minister by president Cleveland!" "Yes, I am authorised to make
that announcement. The draft of the
proposed treaty was submitted to the
Chinese minister yesterday and if the
proposed treaty is signed certain legislation required to put it into effect
will bo necessary in order that tha
complete exclusion, of the Mongolian
element objected to on the Pacific
coast may be brought about. It may
be said also that one important article
of the treaty is the one providing that
immigration from Hong Kong and by
way of the Canadian border shall be
effectively stopped,"
A SUCCESSFUL OPERATION.
San Remo, Feb. 9.—Dr. Brammon
successfully performed tracheotomy
on the crown prince's throat and he is
progressing favorably.
AN OLD FIRM GOES TO THE WALL.
Chicago, Feb. 9.—Donatory Bros,,
a board uf trade firm, failed this morning. Tho firm was of 30 yean standing.   Liabilities is yet unsnown.
A FATAL   SPREE.
Reading, Pa., Feb. 9.—A fatal firo
occurred at Kutztown last night. Daniel Hopp went home at a late hour in
an irresponsible condition, and it is
supposed he threw a lighted cigar
nmrmg some inflammable matter and
then wont to bed. Shortly afterwards
the house took firo, and a 15-year-old
son of Hopp perished in the flames. '
Three other houses were burned, and
a shoemaker who lived with Hopp is
missing and may have perished in the
flames. The bodies of the ohildren
were recovered, but there ia no trace
of Hopp,
THE QUEEN'S SPEECH.
London, Feb. 9,—Parliament wu
opened to-day by royal oommiuion.
The Lord Chancellor read the Queen's
speech, whioh was very pacific tnd
was recoived with mingled ehten tnd
hisses, The speech reletting to Inland says: " Agrarian crimeVhu diminished and the power of coercive conspiracies is sensibly abated. Muslim
tending to develop the resources of
Ireland and to facilitate an increase in
tho number of proprietors of tha toil
will bo laid before parliament." The
prospect for commerce is more hopeful than for yean. Jl.iil.-j British dolumbijiu
Thnrsdar ivinlnu, Feb. 9, iww.
By means of a very delicate instrument known as the bolometer
some one has succeeded in accurately determining tho temperature of
tho moon. This dreary nnd desolate
orb is said to enjoy a cliinnto considerably colder tlinn the blizzard blasted regions in the northwestern
states of which such pitiful tales
havo recently been told. The mean
temperature of the moon is 200 bo-
low zero; but in times of eclipse,
when the suns rays arc shut off, a.
much lower temperature is reached.
But the moon is believed to lie destitute of tiny atmosphere, and, consequently, freo from moisture ; and
it may possibly bo true that people
thero find 200 below zero no harder
to bear than 10 below in Winnipeg.
It is always a cold day on our satellite, however, and evon a Winnipeg-
gor might get left if he undertook to
boom real estate in such high latitudes.
An attempt to hold Sunday concerts in Victoria lias been tried nnd
failed. The first and only concert
of this kind took place nt Victoria
Theatre last Sunday night. The
performance included a clarionet
solo, and vocnl solos and choruses.
The attendance was not so large as
had been expected; and it is announced that, in consequence of opposition from a large number of citizens, uo more entertainments of tho
kind will be given. But nro thore
not a great many worse things than
Sunday concerts every Sunday
both in Victoria and other provincial cities against which wo seldom
hear a protest 1 Is there really any
good reason why steamboats should
run in provincial waters 011 Sunday
which would not ulsn justify the running of sawmills or the performance
of any other kind of labor! People
sometimes straiu at a gnat while
they aro swallowing a camel.
From the public accounts presented to tho provincial legislature the
other day it is learned tlint the revenue for the fiscal year ending '10th
June last amounted (0.(5*11,516 and
the expenditure $731,311. This
shows an excess of expenditure over
revenue of $189;7&8, This state of
things, of course, was anticipated,
and for the purpose of meeting it
the government last year obtained
authority to negotinte a loan of Sl,-
000,000. In the circumstances of
the country it was not considered
wise to limit the expenditure to the
revenue. There were large demands
for publio works whose construction
was deemed necessary to the development of the country, and the only
way to meet thoso demands was by
negotiating n loan. Hon. Theo.
Davie, a few weeks ago, stated publicly that the sum then remaining at
the credit of the government
amounted to t"?517,957, so that the
government docs not seem to have
been in a very great hurry to dissipate the provincial resources.
Mr. Humphreys has launched another batch of enquiries at the heads
of the miserable ministers who sit
trembling on a one-legged stool in
dreadful anticipation that something
will break soon. Tlie member for
Oomox has raised his hand to the
declaration that ho " will make it
hot for them follows;" and if questions and talk will make anybody
hot, there is a warm time coming.
Mr. Humphreys hns intimated that
his constituency hns been greatly
neglected by tho government, and is
howling lustily for bigger appropriations. This is in fulfilment of
promises made during the election
campaign. It is reported that in
tho canvass Mr. Humphreys never
failed to make a promise which he
believed might secure a vote, lt is
a good and safe card for a politician
to play who cares nothing at all for
principle. Such a man does not
concern himself in the least whether
the things asked for are noetlecl or
not, or whether they could bo granted with due regard to the interests
of the province. His only concern
is to make tho government pan out
liberally, or to be ablo to show his
constituents that, notwithstanding
his ceaseless efforts, tho government
absolutely refused to do his constituency justice. Mr. Humphreys is
sure to mako capital in one way or
another, and ho knows that such
tactics cannot damago his reputation.
The Canadian Pacific is now exhibiting its weakness as a competitive line for Oriental fast freight
and passenger business. Snowdrifts and slides and high waters
have stopped travel for an indefinite
aeason, — .Sem Francisco BuUllin,
This is both unfair and misleading.
Tho longest interruption to traffic on
the O. P. R, this winter lasted orily
a week. The mails which came
over on the lust China steamer went
through to the east without stoppage. China mails nnd passengers
from the east were delayed a few
days, and the-Parthia waited for
them. There has been no hucIi
blockade tt to destroy the reputation
of the rotd, tnd nono compared to
■what htt been experienced on tho
American HneB, Will tho Bulletin
be good'enough to tell us how many
dtijni the Northern and the Central
Pacific have been blocked during
the winter! There is uow in this
oity a gentleman who came from
Montreal with tho intention of taking prrssugrr by the Parthia. Taking
the advice of friends in Montreal, ho
came by the Northern, believing
that by doing so he would be able to
catch the steamer. But ho arrived
just half n day too lute. If lit; had
conic by the O. P. R. he would have
reached Vancouver in time. Tho
Bulletin is talking about somofcliing
of which it knows very littlo, or else
its jealousy of tho O. P. K. has
prompted it to misrepresent.
Josoph Ivilsilll, Percy, writes: "I was
induced to try Dr, Thomas' Eolectrio Oil
for a InmoneBS which troubled nro for
three or four yoars, anil feuirrl it the
best article 1 ever tried. It Iras Irccrr a
great blessing to mc." Bowavo of similarly rirrnrerl articles; they arc imitations
of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil.

Star? at a Trails,
f,A batting-man Is so dominatod by his
assion for gambling that he will make
wager on anything into which the ele-
tent of chance enters. Years ago, when
ro cholera was decimating the English
i India, it is lair, that the officers of a
irtain regiment used to make bots as to
■io next man who should die.
[Horrible as is such an act in tho
.'esence of death, it is matched by tbo
sed of certain T'linkits, an Indian
ibe in Alaska. Thoy are noted for
_ riving hard bargains, and slop at noth-
'rg in ordor to enforce their demands.
;,-eiiteuant Schwatka tells tho story in
*»3 fiidwirriadii.*
1 A white man ventured in a canoe to
jbs through the surf on a reef in Ih j
liter harbor of an Alaskan port. Tho
,inoe was capsized, and the man was
armed by several T'linkits, who hap-
jned to her near in their boat, one ot
I'liini grasped him by the hair as he
us going down "for good."
The Indian, instead of pulling the half-
rowned man into the large canoo, held
im iu the water until lie had promised
> pay a handsome sum of money, to bo
ividod among the crew.
{Lieutenant Schwatka himself fell a
'cttnr to a sharp T'linkit woman. Mo
ad bargained with her to do somo
.■ashing. She took tho soiled clothes,
nd in an hour roturned and demanded
er pav. Uu being told that she would
li paid when the washing was brought
uric, Bhe led the lieutenant out of doors,
id showed him the washed clothes
wging on the bushes. Her contract
ily called for tho washing. She hud
agreed to bring the clothes back!
"My father was very unxious for a hoy.
Ho was disappointed Mint I was born nr
girl; However, he brought me up as
much as possiblo rs a i oy. I Was taught
asaboy. \t'hen-my mother remonstrated
be would say, ut eighto.'ii I will ban i her
over to you, and you can teach her nil a
girl ought to know. But Carlyle came,
and it was forgotten. I did not know
how to tack on a button when 1 got
married, but I could write Latin. When
we got married lie took mo to a farmhouse, far from tho busy liHiints of men.
A Btrapplnr*, r.rl-urmed wench waited on
us. 'It is mark ■t-rruy to day,' srti.l ehe tc

courtesy. '1 am going to market; what

time. '0, anything you like,' was my
reply. 'No, ma'am, not as I like, as you
like.' Well, we decided on soinethirg.
But th} cooking wus execrable. liny
after day onr dinner was uneatable.
'My dear,' said I 'arlylu gravely lo mo nt
length, 'I am a philosopher, but I mint
hnve butcher's ment prop.-rly cooked for

Then getting a cookery book I shut myself up with my pots and pans, and soon

Everything concerning Mexico is of
interest just now, an I it is pleasant to
bo assured that among tho chief production of the country are children. Thar
an observant correspondent in tha
•country notes th: large acquaintance o
'the people with multiplication in sayln*.
that Mexico is the lio.-bed of children.
The land is floolol with them, and a
small family is a thing unknown. They
greet you, he says, nt every v.indow, at
every corner, on overy woman's back.
They fill the carriages on tho plaza, thoy
are like a swarm of boe? around a honey-
suckle—ono on every tiny lower and
hundreds waiting for their chance—A
man died the other day who was followed to tho grave by 87 sons and daughters
and had burlod tliirteon, so that lu was
father to the grand total of uu chil iron.
There is another m. n living in Mexico
who has hod two wives and who has
living4) children. Allowing the small
average of five to tho family ono can see
how numerous the graudcliildr "h would
be. I am acquainted, ho adds, with a
gentleman whose mother is hut thirteen
and a half years older tlinn lie and she
had eighteen mors of a f unily. lt is t
blessed thing that the unlives are able to
live in a cane hut and exist on boans
and rice, else the list of deaths by starvation would be something dreadful."

Olrl (Jnubticri the Prince.
.The only snub the Flipe* oi Wales
bt received at Hombura was admiuis-
red by an American girland in such a
inner aa to take the breath away from
r mother.
It was the season the prince fell on tho
.oon floor with Mils Winalow whilo
lining. He had overcharged himself
th wine at dinner. Presently he
.iglit sight of this southern girl, distin-
rshed looking, handsome and passion-
ily fond of dancing, who had some days
nious been introduced to him. He
patched an equerry to summon her
r a waltz.
On the instant, and while her mother
s dumbfounded for want of a suitable
ply, she aaid: "Convey uy regrets to
) royal highness, and inform him that
'shall dance no more thii season."
i"But you forget, Miss ," conned tbe emissary, "that this is a royal
rmmand,"
("And you forget, lir, that I am tin
merican and not accustomod ■ to oboy-
g royal commands."
At this the equerry vanished and the
(ring lady's mother recovered her
•euth. The plucky southerner kept
;r word by abstaining from dancing the
uninderel themion.

on "Forgiveness of Injuries" in llurst-

rector, Julius Hiiro, said to mo, with the
well-known queer smiie on his rugged
face, "Do yon f.u iw what yon have been
saying to tho people ? I only hope they
won't follow \our advice." "Whv.
what?" I aslcel with roue surpnn,
"Why, you've beon telling them over
and over again to bu sure always to return ovil for good." Need I say that

sermon was serious'y und wbolesoiu. ly

at a well-known writ ring place. Httiug
next to a ludy resident, ut table, tlm

acquainted with him. "Hoar me," said
the lady, "I did not know that Mr. I*.

replied, "wo havo known one another

Genuine politeness is a beautiful trait,
whethor in a whito man or a black man,
i horse or a donkey. It is a largely a
matter of habit, ami we advise all our
readers to cultivate it. Nothing could
be better than this incident, narrated by
the Charleston Ncivs and Couriers
A little incident happened to a young
Northern lady, visiting this city so no
months ago, whieh she soom.d to take
pleasure in relating.
In crossing a quiet side street ono day.
a vegetable cart, drawn by a small don
key, und driven by an aged ne-rro wllh
shining black face and very whito wool,
was about to puss at the same time.
As she hesitated, the donkey w.is
stopped with a peremptory, "W'oa,
Squash I W'oa, sail, 1 tells yo' I" unr,
while sho crossed, nodding in recognition
of tho clear passage thus ailorded b.-r.
the vonerable darkey took off lib tatter rd
remnant ol a hat, aud said, with a flourish:
"Pass on, my missus, puss on I .''quash
and mo, we alius waits on the ladies,"
Sho was charmed with this, as a sain -
pie of the courtesy of tho coior.nl race,
and said that Sir Walter Raleigh's gal
lantry fell far short of it, in her opinio.i,
inasmuch as it had interested motives.

Two Spanish naval officers were playing a duct in -the cool inner room of i,
piano wareroom of Fifth, avenue New
Vorii, recently. A group of musicians
critics nnd employes of the compan.
were sitting or standing around atteii
lively listening. One of the dark-beard-
ed performers wns playing an accompaniment for Ihe other, who hold to his
mouth an instrument so small as to be
entirely coucealed by hia fingers; yet
the notes of "La I'aloina," thnt sensuous
fetching Mexican air, rang out in tones
like a piccolo's, yet eo strong as to scorn
Is if tbey came from a calliope. When
the air was finished, tho infant flute wat
submitted for inspection. It was a section of a reed, very like those which nre
used for pipe stems, having three small
holes beside the blow hole. It was not
three inches long; yet from this scrap
of perforated reed over two octaves or
notes had been elicted wlthaarrengh
that made the air palpitate, and the most
rapid runs had been executed, lt is a
new instrument called the reed flute
and Is quite a curiosity.   For ill size, ii
the biggest instrument on earth.

Last night Herring's Opera House
held the largest and best nutured
audience since it-i opening. The
public, as a rule, seemed to be aware
the evening entertainment would bo a
treat, and accordingly turned out in
full forco to partukeln the enjoyment.
Tho programme was carefully chosen
and the best ever rendered in
Westminster. Venerable Archdeacon
Woods acted ns chairman Tho "Happy Hottentots" opened the programme
with ono of their instrumental selections. The Hottentot"! don't appear
in public vory often but when they do
they are appreciated. "Fairy Voices,"
by tho ohildren, wasa treat to both
old and young. The little dears wore
beautifully drossed in fairy costume,
wings and alt, and danced and sang to
perfection. Littlo Miss Blab. Faulding
represented tho Fairy Queen and sustained hor part with both graco and
dignity. The audience wore su pleased
with tho performance that an encore
wns demanded and gran!ed by the
fairies, who, of course, were nil good
fairies. Mr. Hamber sing "Truo to
the Last" in capital style. Mra.
Beeoher and Miss Hill favored tho audience with an instrumental selection
and received much applause. Mra.
Moresby's song, one if the best of tiie
evening, wus sung with much grace
and sweetness. Miss K. Draper
showed good elocutionary powers in
her recitation *" The Heavy Brigade."
Mr. Rickman, an old favorite, treated
the audience to a good old song which
was right well.sung. Miss Bate Bang
very nicely, and was obliged to respond
to tlie encore demanded. Messrs.
Rickman, Moray, Solvlfield and Hamber made it famoui quartette and their
efforts were crowned with success and
applause, Mrs. SilHtoo'sWeotiqn was
rendered in u very pleasing stylo and
folly deserved tho encore insisted upni
by the audience. Mr. Kcary sung a
capita! sung and then tried to ccipc,
but that would not be permitted, and,
as nn encore, gavo "For gondtiBsa sake
don't say 1 told you " filled with local
hits, which brought down the house.
Many of the accompaniments were
played by Miss Dickinson, who deserves the thanks of buth the singers
and audience for tho masterly way
in which she performed that
important and trying duty.
An intermission of 15 minutes followed,
during which the charming young
ladies who dispersed coffee, cuke and
other luxuries did a thriving business.
The snlo uf work was also proceeded
with and tlie grea'or part of it was disposed of before tho gathering was called
to ordor. The second part of tlio programme was opened by tlio Misses
Homer's,,who rendered an instrumental duet with much grace and precision.
A charade entitled "Manager," brought
tho programme to a closo. The delays
between acts were a little longer than
should have been, but the audience
wore g.iod naturod, nnd, on the whole,
the piece was declared a success. Mrs.
Moresby, as "Miss Snubbcm," was all
that any one could wish for, and her
"make-up" was simply perfection.
Miss Hill acted her part in a vory
creditable manner, and Mr. Brooks,
na "Mr. Starum," mnde a oipital theatrical manager. The othor nclors
carried out their parts vory nicely.
The aale and entertainment wero both
a great financial success, and to the
ladies alono is due ull credit fur the
admirable manner in whicli everything
was prepared and curried out. Thoir
untiring efforts of tho last few weoks
has resulted in tho very handsome addition of 8200 being made to the bell
tower fund.

AN  1'J.TRUm'L LABOR.
Njsw, York, Feb. 7.- Mayor Hewitt
has received n letter from a man whose
name he refused to disclose, inclosing
a piece of pnper smaller than a penny,
on which was written the Lord's
prayer. Mayor Hewitt sent tho following characteristic response: "I
have to thank you for your ability tu
write the Lord's prayer in script so
fine that even angels could not read it
without a magnifying glass. From
my experience with the human eye I
am inclined to think that if you pursue
this work very lung you will destroy
your vision, for which even the mere
writing of tho Lord's prayer will hardly
compensate you in this world or the
next."

Gladstone's reiork.
London, Fob, 8.—Mr. Gladstone,
replying to an address at Shorncliffe,
while en route from Dover to London
to-day, said that neither in Europe nor
iu America could bo seen such a painful spectacle as is observable in England, that uf one nntion holding down
another by forco. Russia, he dcclnred,
would be ashamed to sny of Finland
what Englishmen seem not to bo
ashamed to say of Ireland, namely:
that 32,000,000"uf people wore nfrnid
of 5,000,000. Southern England alone,
he asserted, created the majority in
parliament against twine rule, and in a
greater measure than any othor portion of the kingdom, was southern
England responsible for tlie state of
affairs in Ireland. Mr. Gladstone's
change of plans in lauding at Dover
instead of at Folkestone prevented the
delivery of his expected speech, much
to tlie disappointment of Tories and
Liberals alike, all of whom expected a
declaration of the Liberal chief's programme. The few words spoken by
Mr. Gladstone nt Shorncliffe, where lie
was mnde tho reoipiont of a laudatory
address, conveyed uo definite idea of
any changes he may have made, or in-
tend-3 to make in his Irish scheme.
The arrival of the ex-premier at Clmr-
iui.' Cross station at 7 o'clock this evening was the occasion uf a demonstration on the part of the thousands of
people assembled to greet him and
mint have made him supremely happy.

"Blizzards."
Editor Colombian.— Iu a late issue
of your paper I noticed some weather report:-], which stated that we had a "blizzard" during the short visit that we hnd
from winter. It is really amusing how
people try' to ape the fashion; just because we have been reading about the
terrible stiff-**rings in the nurtliwcst parts
of the United States by such storm-*' we
begin to fancy that wo must report such
tilings here; to call the little flurry of
snow that we had here a "bUzz-ml* is
drawing very much ou the imagination.
•James Kennedy,
X. \V.,F«b. OslSSS.
[Wo venture to say Mr. Kennedy has
never soon a northwest bli/.wu'd, or the
above tetter would not have been written. We have seen several blizzards in
the northwest, and the one which struck
this valley on the lytli tilt, would com-
pure very favorably with any of them,
forthe time it lasted. Of course the
storm only lasted a few hours, but on the
sparsely settled prairies many persons
have lost the trail during just such
storms and being unable to recover it
have perished from exposure,—Kn.l
