(Jurrent Krcnis ami Opinions.
Tho first trial of womon voting at
municipal elections 1ms now been
made all over the province, and the
second trinl over a part of it. The
result 1ms been found on all hands
eminontly satisfactory. No injury
lias been done to womanly delicacy,
and good has everywhere been
effected by tlie manner in which
women's votes lmvo been cast. We
have never had any fear about women having the franchise, and the
experiences of Monday have fully
confirmed us in our confidence.—
Toronto Globe.
If the bill in regard to Utah
which has just buen passed by the
Semite should become a law, tlie
Mormon church will bo in ii pretty
tight placo. No restriction which
could possibly bo thrown around it
seems to havo been forgotten. The
church, indeed, will be prohibited
from doing everything but existing.
Even its management is taken from
tho hands of the Mormons aud
placed in tho hands of commissioners appointed by the president. If
such a law will not destroy polygamy, tcs destruction hy legal means
may well be despaired oi—Seattle
Post.
There never ought to have been
any contention between tho Federal
authority and the provinces on the
license question. The right to issue
licenses was specifically given to the
provinces, and the control of commerce was vested in the general
goWwmnr-ut. Was the granting of
]£ceiiiN >ny part of thn regulation
On this point tho
> turn. The vulidity
vase laws had been
Ition; but it might
3d without the intervention qf federal authority,
The provinces should have been left
to regulate the licenses; tho interference of tlio federal legislature
was uncalled for, nnd as we now
know unwarranted. The resolution
that the federal authority shoidd interfere was taken without necessity
and in the heat of a party campaign.
Much needless irritation has been
caused; Mr. Mowat has hnd a victory thrust upon him, und the Dominion authorities lime suffered
more than a defeat; in a quarrel of
their own seeking, and which they
ought novel* to have provoked, they
have beon convicted of meddlesome
interference in a province which is
not their own.—Monetary Times.
Professor Huxloy's farewell address as president of the Royal
Society was such as he, perhaps,
alono amongst Knglish men of
science was competent to pronounce.
He indicated very briefly a few of
tlie chief achievements of the interpreters of nature within the limits of liis own lifo. Within his
memory, he reminds us, men could
travel no faster than in the days of
Achilles or of Kamscs Maimun.
Within his momory the arts of war
and peaco have been revolutionized
by arms of precision aud the electric telegraph, Tho single discovery
of tho function of parasites in the
animal economy has rebuilt the
theory and tho practice of medicino
from the foundation to tho roof.
But, vast as are the practical boons
already garnered for mankind, they
seem poor and trifling to the boundless harvest soienco promises to
yield. In tho fertile doctrines of
evolution aud tho conservation of
cnorgy Professor Huxley bids us
see the assured and certain prospect of a new nud immeasurable
advancement of learning. The
genuine student of science is awed
by the immensity of his reward.
The prolific labors of his fellows
threaten to crush his powers with
the multitude of their discoveries.
No single mind can in theso days
hopo to master any considerable
branch of human learning. The
thinker must content himself with
specializing on some one minute
department of knowledge, and guard
against the narrowness of tho
specialist hy broad and general
scientific culture.—St, James Gazette,
Tho Economist can hardly imagine a more intolerable position than
that to wliich tho British govern
ment is reduced in Kgypt. Lord
Salisbury is compelled to keep a
garrison iu Lower Kgypt, as well as
on tho liver, for four of disaflection; and 14,000 English soldiers
aro therefore locked up in the Nile
Valley, half of thom doing police
work iu a hot rice swamp, often
unhealthy, uud tho other half cantoned in melancholy forts along
tho Nile, waiting for an enemy
about whom llm only thing known
The British Columbian.

is, that when he fights, he fighta
with dangerous energy and determination. Tho whole force is lost
to the United Kingdom; and though
its expense is not all borne by the
British treasury, still a great deal
of it is, including all transport, invaliding, and the supply of war
material; while the burden on the
treasury of Cairo, which is accustomed to cheap troops, who get little wages and live on the country,
is vory nearly intolerable. If it
continues, the finances of Egypt
will go wrong again, while thero is
no visible time which any one can
fix for terminating the effort. To
follow the Arabs is to undertake
an expeditiou to Khartoum, or even
to Darfour; to retreat is to bring
the wholo host of the desert instantly into the field, flushed with
an imaginary victory and a hope of
plunder; while to remain still is to
garrison a territory of no value at
great 'expense, for a time which we
are told experienced officials measure rather by years than by months.
That is a lamentable waste of resource;*; yet the only remedy, the
formation of an Egyptian army
strong enough to defend the southern frontier for itself, appears to be
as far off as ever.—The Week.

How My Head Was Saved,
Editor Columiuan.--Will you al
low me space in your journal to let the
public know my experience at the Bart
lett House, Chilliwhack. . On the 7th
inst. I went, as constable, to make en-
Suiries about a man by the name of
uo Hamburg who has been missing
since the 9th of Ootober lost. I had
my supper at the Bartlett House, after
which I went into the sitting room
and began talking with a man named
Walter. The business man of the
house oame in and began abusing mo
for bringing that whiskey case against
him, and said that if 1 had been a
young man ho would havo smashed my
head in before I had finished my supper. This roused the old soldier in
me, and I told him that although not
a young man I wasn't afraid of him.
I was perfectly sober at the time, for
although I confess to taking a dram
sometimes, I never do ao when on
duty. 1 told Mr. Ernies that what I
had done in the whiskey caso was dune
by order of the council because thero
had been a breach of the bylaws, and
that as loug as I am constable I will
take notice of every information respecting Buch matters. When the
business man had said all he wanted to
about me, other members of the household camo into thc nmin and took a
hand in tho abuse. With respect to
the object of my search, I was not
able to tind any information-of value.
I wish, therefore, to give notice about
this man Joo Hamberry, as the people
would like to know something of his
whereabouts. As far as I cau find out
he was last seeu at Chilliwhack on the
Olh of Octobor, 1885. He Bpoko ot
going below by tho steamer, but hu
was afterwards seen coming*from tho
landing. He was nevor seen going ou
board thu steamer, aud enquiries at
New Westminstor and Victoria failed
to elicit any information respecting
him. On the 20th Sept. he was in a
whiskey row at Centreville, Ohilti-
whack. Ou that day the bar at thu
Bartlett Houso waa kept by a stranger
who is said to havo showed a pistol
and remarked: "If Joe gets after roe
abuut tho whiskey I will get after him
about the pistol. After the show, on
the 20th Sept., thore was horse-iacing,
and Joe held a stake of 850 which ho
refused to give up as thoro was a dispute about who should get it. As it
is uow ovor three months since hia
disappearance, I shall be glad to hear
anything that may throw light ou the
matter.—Yours, -fto-.,
Wm, Hall, Constable.
Chilliwhack. Jan. 13.
The London Timet correspondent in
Burmah, aftor the capture of the
Miuhla fort, wrote: I again visited
the fort this morning, in company
with Colonel Sladen. Tho prisoners
who were confined in the casements
did not appear to feel their position
much. When -jucstioned by Sladen,
they all said they were Mandalay men
and had only just arrived at Miuhla.
Thoy wore unanimous iu duclnring
that thuy were impressed by the officer* at Mandalay, and had been vory
unwilling to fight. They are a fine,
athletic, soldierly-tuoking body of men,
and formed a marked contrast to the
peasflnts of tho district, some of whom
had alsu beon mado prisoners, I examined their gum: tiiey were all old*
fashioned muzzle-loading rifles, and
the gunpowder used by them was very
coarse and bad. With suoh weapons
it is wonderful that they had been
able to make so good a resistance.
Sig. Farini, the explorer of the
Kalahari desert, in Africa, makes an
interesting statement bearing on Pasteur's inoculations fur hydrophobia.
Ho says that in the region mentioned
a: similar operation is resorted to in
cases of poisonous snake bitei. Every
native when he goes out hunting car
rica with liim some dry poison glands
of a snake. If he is bitten he immediately introduces a small portion of
this stuff near the wound and goes lo
sleep. Tlio limb swells, but after two
days it regains its normal size, and the
patient recovers. Animals are treated
the sumo way.
Mr. John B. Gnugh reappeared ou
the lecture platform at Melrose, Mass.,
a few evonings ago, and introduced
himself by explaining the cause of his
long silt-nee. *'I appear to-night," he
said, "for the first time in three
iii'inthi, nnd for the first time in my
lifo with a sut of crockery in my mouth.
I have di'euiloil greatly appearing be*
foru the public, nut under false pretences, but i.tuli-i* falsi* teeth." deports
say that Mr, Gough spoke "with all
his old eloquence and viijor,"

The Colonist admits that the
doption of "fair trade" by Great
Iritain might result *• furiously to
Janadian interests "at the outset,"
tut thinks it would soon compel
lie United States to change its 6s-
al policy from protection to reci-
irocity. We do not share our co-
emporary's views. The United
itatea is not a nation easily bullied
ito reciprocity, and discriminating
uties would probably have the
ery opposite effect. If, as our co-
eniporury asserts, reciprocity wonld
;i\e sucli great advantages to Oan*
dn, tho Americuns will not bu apt
o surrender these advantages with-
ut substantial compensation.
The Victoria Times claims that
he Novth-west is upon the very
i*erge of an Indian rebellion. If
iuch a thing should take place it
will be a terrible misfortune not
rmlv for the North-west but for
;he wliole country. Canada hits
ind to pay already several millions
n connection with tlie Kiel rebel-
ion, besides giving up the lives of
icarly a hundred of hor bravest
ions, and no one now wishes to see
:he terrible experiences of last
/ear repeated. There is evidently
inioh discontent among the North-
■Vest Indians, and we arc afraid it
s to some extent at leust the result
if mismanagement in the department.
Good News,
In another column we publish an
.mportant despatch from Victoria
lontaining Mr. H. Abbott's views
hi railway terminus matters. It
.vill be' seen that Mr. Abbott fully
jonfirms the statements made by
VIr. VanHorne at the interview
vith citizens here last fall. Both
;he inlet extension to Coal Harbor
md the branch line are to be un-
lertaken without delay. At the
aresent time the work of clearing
:he right of way might be going on,
is the weather is very favorable for
juch work. Mr. Abbott also confirms Mr. - VanHorne's statements
respecting tlie terminal works and
ihe shipping that will lio established
it the terminus. It is satisfactory
to know tlmt ull these large works
are now so nenr their commencement. They cannot be carried out
without oxercising a largo and bene-
licial influence upon the business of
tlie province, and especially of this
district. In a few weeks work will
bB plentiful in this region, and
money will begin to circulate freely.
These anticipations will encourage
the people to bear patiently the
present dull times, which are only
temporary.
Winter Navigation,
In consequence of flouting ice in
the river, the str. Princess Louise
did not come to this city last Monday, but took mails, passengers and
express to Granville. This incident
calls attention once more to the
need of some arrangement which
will prevent these interruptions to
the trade of the city. Every rest
dent knows that the time during
which ice obstructs ordinary nav
gation between this city and thc
gulf rarely exceeds two weeks each
winter, and during that time the
ice is never thick enough to prevent
the navigation of the river by properly equipped steamers. Last summer the snag boat Samson was protected about tlie water line with
iron plate so that she would be
able to keop the river open in the
event of a cold dip such as tho one
just experienced. But the depart
ment at Ottawa declines to permit
her to bn used for that purpose ou
the plea that she might sutler injury. There is no danger of anything of the kind, and Capt. Grant,
who ought to be the best judge of
the matter, is perfectly willing to
take out [the Samson, and expresses
tho opinion that he can without
difficulty keep the river open for
navigation. The people of this
city ought to protest vigorously
ngainst the action of thu Ottawa
authorities. And there ought to be
ti condition in the specifications of
the new mail service that the mail
stenmers are to come up the river
throughout the whole season. Such
a condition would causo the con-
tractor to prepare a steamer for
such emergencies as the one that
has just arisen, for there would be
no difficulty in navigating tho
Frasor during the -whole season
with a verysmall amount of outlay
in the way we have suggested.

Unpardonable Delay,
Jt is very far from creditable
to tho Dominion government that
there lias been really nothing done
towards adjusting the claims of
squatters on lands in the railway
belt. It was a part of the agreement betweon the provincial and
federal governments at the time of
the settlement act that these lands
wero to be opened for settlement
without delay. It cannot be urged
that this condition has been complied with, for tho work of opening
tliese lands seems no further forward
now than it was twelve months ago.
During the past summer a great
pint of the Dominion lands within
this district might have boen tiur-
Vflyed and put iuto such a shape a«
would permit people occupying them
to acquire a title. A squad of surveyors came out from Ottawa in
tho summer, headed by a Frenchman who proposed to do things
upon a new plan, and under entirely new arrangements* But so
far as we know or havo been ablo
to discover there is absolutely nothing of practical value to show as
the result of the operations of these
men. Precious time is being wasted,
and many of our most promising
and most enterprising farmers arc
discouraged beyond measure at the
repented disappointments with
which they have met. We know
that the provincial government lias
been doing its best to hasten the
settlement of this very important
matter, but, apparently, without
effect. It ought to enlist united
and earnest action on thc part of
the representatives of this province
at Ottawa. If they do their duty
we feel sure this grievance, that is
working great mischief to provin-
liul interests, would be speedily
-emoved.
Chinese Exportation.
Our cotemporary of tho Nanaimo
Free Press reprints the article on
Chinese exportation which recently
appeared in Tin-; Columbian, but
dissents from the suggestion as to
costs. The suggestion was that it
would pay tho country if tlie Chinese were shipped back to China at
public expense. Our cotemporary
thinks the expense of the exportation should fall upon those persons
"who have made millions out of
this serf labor." Wo suppose Mr.
Onderdonk i3 the person referred to.
There is no other psrsou in the
country who has mule millions, or
even a million, out of the Chinese,
and we doubt if even Mr. Onderdonk has, But although Mr. Onderdonk is, perhaps, responsible for
the present phase of the Chinese
evil, it would bo quite useless to
follow the suggestion of the Free
Press and enquire whether it would
be possible to induce hiin to rid the
country of these people. Every
person knows tiiat Mr. Onderdonk
would not listen to any proposal so
absurd. We must look elsewhere,
therefore, for a source from which
to obtain the necessary funds to
send away these people, and the
only other source is the public treasury. And we are not sure that a
very just demand may not be made
upon the federal treasury by tho
people of British Columbia for this
purpose. It must not be forgotten
that, some years ago, Mr. Onderdonk made a proposal which, if it
laid been accepted, might havo very
materially modified the Chinese
evil which now presses so heavily
upon the country. Ah: Onderdonk
offered to contrihuto .?'250,000 towards bringing to this province a
sufficient number of whito men to
curry on the railway works, the condition being that the men should
remain two years on tho works.
This offer was rejected by tho Dominion government! Under theso
circumstances Mr. Ondordonk may
be excused for having employed
Chinamen, and we think our Nanaimo cotemporary will admit that tho
responsibility of sending thein back
to the llowcry kingdom rests fairly
upon the federal authorities,

A great deal of bitterness seems to
have grown out of the mayoralty contest At Nanaimo, This is much to be
regretted.
New Zealand, with a population of
about 600,000, has a debt of nearly
£31,000,000, or over 8250 for each

During the "cold snap" tho people
of Victoria, as well as our own citizens,
have been enjoying the luxury of
skating on ice.
There were two aea-ts contested in
the Delta council, and the election
resulted in the return of Messrs.
' Southerby and McKee.
On Mondny the weathor was very
cold, and Monday night Ihe thermometer went down to 14 nbove zero—the
coldest record thia winter.
Thu Times claims thnt the election
of Mr. Fell as mayor of Victoria is a
virtual defeat of tho government!
This sort of talk is cheap.
The Now York Grant monument

From an advertisement in another

We learn that the breach of promise esse which has beon for some
time pending is amicably arranged,
uud has been taken out of court. The
gossips who have been looking forward
eagerly to "developments" will be
disappointed.
Tho new city council lias begun tho
year by making application for the lots
upon which tho old gaol stood, where
it ts proposed to erect n city ball and
police barracks. This ia an excellent
idea, and we hope the application may
be successful.
A petition was being circulated
among the business men of the city
yesterday asking the Dominion govornment to let the Hiiag-boat Samson dear
the ice out of the river. It received a
great many signatures nud was telegraphed to Ottawa,
On the 7th instant all thu Chinese
laundries in San Jose were closed by
the police, iu consequence of the violation of a recently enaotod ordinance
forbidding laundry work in wooden

Yesterday three Chinamen were
committed to the city gaol—one for
selling liquor to Indian-), and two for
vagrancy- Theso vagrant Chinamen
aro starving, and soon the gaols will
be full of them, nud they will be provided with food and clothing at provincial expense.
Ayer's Hair Vigor improves tho beauty
of the hair and promotes its growth. It
Imparts sn attractive appearance, a delightful and lasting perfume. While it
stimulates the roots, clcatisos the scalp,
and adds elegance to luxuriance, its
clients are enduring; aud thus it proves
itself to bo the best and cheapest article
for toilot use.
Distress among tlio Chineso grows
more pitiable during thu cold weather.
Thero are large numbers of these poople without food or shelter. Ono of
the chiof sources of food supply—tho
trosh fish caught at tho wharves--has
failed sinco thu arrival of the cold
wavo. It is a puzzling question to
know what will bocome of those miserable wretches.
Needed Mails.—From the Kamloops Sentinel we learn that arrangements have been made for a regular
mail servico to Farwell. Tiie service
is to bo weekly to Shuswap and fortnightly to Farwell, Mr. A, McBryan
ia the mail contractor. It is also stated
that arrangements are being made for
a mail to Granite Creek.
Chilliwhack Election.—The only
contest was for reeve. Mr. S. Cawley, sr., opposed Mr. D. McGillivray.
Mr. Cawley's only allegod reason for
condemning the late council was for
their "factious opposition" to the illegal sale of liquor, so that Mr. McGillivray ran the temperance ticket straight
and won by 12 majority. Score ono
for Chilliwhack temperance.—Com.
Vancouver Herald.— This is the
name of the latest addition to the provincial press, The now papor mado
ils appearance nt Vancouver last Friday morning. It is published by Mr.
D. Brown, late of Walkertown, Ont.,
and is to bo issued every week. The
Herald's firat appearance is very credit-
ablo to ita proprietor, and we have no
doubt the people at the inlet are proud
of it. In politics it announces itself
independent. Wo offer our new co-
temporary our very best wishes.

officers were elected for the o-ift-ent
year: Jno. Roid, capt,; N, A. White,

and ladder company; A. Cameron, 1st

Sumas.—Tho first social of the sea*
son was held on Wednesday evening
last in the old church at the Atch-o-
lato, the object thereof being to help
in the ereotion of the new church,
which it is hoped will be built early
next summer. The musical and liter-
ary entertainment whieh was provided
fully sustained the reputation of tho
Chilliwhack and Sumas residents for
the ability they alwaya display upon
such occasions. Especially noticeable
was the interest taken by prominent
members of other churches in helping
their Methodist neighbors in this laudable effort. The procceeds reaohed
834.—Com.
Navigation.—On Sunday considerable quantities of float ice were seen
in the river, and on Monday tho
mail Btr, Princess Louise did not venture to como up the river, but went
round to Granville. The ice was not
stationary, and there was nothing at
all to prevent a properly • equipped
steamer from coming through. Such
a steamer ought to be pruvided for
winter service in tho river, when ice
may be expected to interfere with
navigation more or less for at least a
week or two duriug tho severest
weathor. If the Louisa, or some
other Bteamer had the protection of
iron plate about the water mark,
tliere w.uld be no need for missing a
single trip.
Improvements.—The other day wo
mentioned that Mr. S. H. Webb was
about to erect a house on the two lots
he purchased at the corporation sale.
We understand that Messrs. Robt.
Wintemuto and Jno. Reid, who also
bought at that snle, aro preparing to
build. Mr. Harvey has sold his two
lots on Agnes st. to the BaptistB, and
arrangements are now iu progress for
the erection of a new church thereon.
The church ia to be 40x40 foet, built
of brick, will probably cost over $4,-
000, and work on it will begin very
Boon. The Oddfellows are also having Iheir lots cleared off, und it ia reported they will shortly begin the
erection of a fine building thereon.
Several persons who purchased lots at
the corporation sale have since sold
them at a good advance.
Goon.—There were 115 votes polled
for Mayor Dickinson at the late election, and 22 for Mr. Kennedy. The
subeditor of the Guardian writes to
his paper claiming that Mr Kennedy
really had a majority, and this is the
way he figures it out: He claims that
all who voted for Mr. Dickinson committed a broach of the law by voting
in each ward; ho therefore divides Mr.
Dickinson's vote by 3, adds 9 spoiled
ballots to Mr. Kennedy's 22, and declares Mr. Kennedy elected by a majority of 5! This is remarkable figuring. Three into 115 goes 38J times,
and I) added to 22 inakesMl, ao that,
admitting tho subeditor's premises,
Mr. Dickinson would still have a majority of at least 7. The rasult reached
bythe sub-editor is eminently creditable, nnd worthy of an official assignee.
■ ■■-——— -tt*     ■ —
A Narrow Escape.—On Saturday
nfternoon quite a numbor of citizens
went out to Burnaby Luke to enjoy
thu rare pleasure of a skate on ice.
Among the number weru Mr, Montague Woods with his sister, Misa
Nellie Woods, and Mr. 0. F. Holt.
These threo started to skate across
the lake, but had not proceeded far
when they came to n crack running
across their path. The ico wna so
thin that it bent down with the
weight of the skaters, aud as thoy
stepped over the crack Miss Nellie
Woods caught her foot botween the
two edges of ico. Her brother I at
onco stopped and pulled her foot out
of tho hole, but the ice gave way
and they were both precipitated into
the water. Mr. Holt, who was near,
Iny down on the edgo of thc Ice and
endeavored to assist Misi Woods, but
he lost his hold and went in head
foremost. He got hold of the young
lady, however, nnd helped her to
keep from sinking until assistance
was obtained. Mr. Titos, Mowat, who
was ou tho lake, immediately proceeded to collect scarfs and other articles
of clothing, and with tho assistance
of others he managed to mako a rope
and pull Miss Woods and Mr. Holt
out of the water. Mr. Woods got out
himself. Beforo Mr. Holt was rescued ho had been in tho water nearly
half an hour, and was very nearly
gone. To his heroism and Mr. Mowat's presence of mind and judgment
the escape nf Miss Woods is mainly
due. Thu three wero brought to the
oity as rapidly as possible, and we aro
glad to learn that none of them seem

Victoria, Jan. 10.—Hr, H. Abbott,
genoral manager of the C.P.R. in Britisli
Columbia, who is here, says thu Coal
Harbor extension from Port Moody will
he proceeded with as soon ns contracts
eau be let, and it is anticipated that it
will be built and in working order by the
loth of duly. Tho round hour-iea, inn-
chine shops, station and other terminal
buildings will not le got under way until
some time iu April. The Dominion government have abandoned the in ten tiuu
of building terminal facilities at Port
Moody, and arrangements nre etuisiiniat*
ed to proceed with tlieir erection at the
Coal Harbor terminus. They will necessarily be of an extensive nature, as tlie
principal repair shops of the wliole division will be located at this point. Arrangements are being made for the building of 1000 feet of steamship wharfage at
Coal Harbor, cud piles are now boing got
out for this purposo. English Bay will
not at present be utilized for wharfage,
but the company's property at this point
reserved' for future developments, Tlie
New Westminster branch will be constructed simultaneously with the Conl
Harbof extension, provided arrangements
are complete for handing over the bonus,
and connection made at about thesame
time as with the former point. The train
service with the East will probably commence by lat .Tune, with two trains n
dny. The company contemplate putting
on fast steamers between Vancouver and
Victoria aud Japan, Mr. Abbott will at
once arrange for a site for terminus buildings, but the company's townsito property will not be placed on tlie market
for about n month yet. He will probably leave for the mainland to-morrow.
The government auction salo of lots on
English Bay waB moderately successful.
Mr. Dunsmuir was the largest purchaser,
twenty-four water lots having been
knocked down to him at prices ranging
from $80 to $'250. Total proceeds of sale
over 916,000. The Japanese consul to
New York is here and will report to his
government upon the trade prospects

City Council,—The members elect
bf the now council met ou Monday

usual hour on Monday night, tho members all being present. On motion,
tho several standing committees wore
made the same us last year with thu
exception that the namo of Mr. Ferris
was substituted for that of Mr. Hendry. Mr, A. J. Alport was reappointed clerk, and the appointment of polico magistrate, city barrister, constables, and lock-up keeper was referred
to the polico committee, Mr. Thos.
Dominy wns reappointed lamplighter
and caretaker. A letter was reueived
from Mr. C. D. Rand submitting a
draft of gas bylaw. A letter was received from Cunningham «t Campbell
stating that they conteinplnted the
erection of woollen mills, and asking
exemption from taxes for 30 years,
and a bonus of §500, tho bonus to
bo paid wheu the buildings nre completed. Messrs. Douglas, Shiles und
Ferris were appointed a committee to

mayor was instructed to apply to tlie
government of British Columbia for n
grant of the,lota upon which tho old

until next Monday night.
■ An Ingenious Boy.—There is at
present in the office of the superintendent of education n wood and lead
model of a Baldwin locomotive,
moulded and carved by Thos. Mc-
Ksney, the fourteen-year old son of
TrusteeR.G. McKaney, Burton's Prairie. The little fellow saw a locomotive for the lirst timo a couple of yenrs
ago, aud only secured a chame to examine it as it rested occasionally near
his home, but he has thoroughly taken
in the working parts and general construction of the engine and tonder,
and roproduced a model of them about
two feet in length. The driving whoela
and shafts, and other connections,
were moulded and cast from lead so-
cured from tea chests, while the forward engine and tho tonder wheels
are made of wood. The piston rods
work in tho cylinders exactly as a
locomotive in motion, oue Bide working
the reverse of tho other, while the eccentric is also correctly arranged.
Tho boiler is woll shaped, with brass
bands, whistle, boll, etc., accurately
placed. The smokestack, headlight
and pilot also are exact counterpart of
the real engine. In fact the cab, tender, and every general appliance of
the locomotive is perfectly represented,
mounted ou rails and sleepers of
wood. Master McKaney is one of tho
must studious boys at school, and
shows by this clever display of talent
that if his genius was directed aud
cultivated in tho proper channels, his
future would prove that he was possessed with mechanical ingenuity fnr
beyond tha average. Tho model wns
given as a Christmas present to his
teacher, Miss Todd.—Colonist,
The Burrard Inlet Tragedy.
As slated in our last issue, tho body
of J. D. Walker, who shot D. J. Rob
sou at the hend of the North arm of
Burrnrd Inlet, was brought to Port
Moody on Friday morning Tho men
who found the body say that Ihe Utile
cabin presented a sight bo shocking
that thoy hurried away from tlie terrible scene. Indeed, they totk nothing
but tho (had body of ihe murderer,
nnd tho two guns whicli were found
outside whero thoy had beon threwn
by Mr. Smith nfter tho struggle;
Walker wns found lying stark and stiff
in a groat pool of blood at ono side of
thu cabin. On the floor elsewhere
then; wore other bloody pools where
the poor victim of Walker's treacherous rifle had bled to death while his
partner was engaged in a torrible &irug-
glu for dear life with the assassin. In
thia struggle the labia hnd been overturned with all its contents (for it will
be remembered that lhe tragedy took
plnco just as dinner had been finished).
Bread nud Hour and sugar and blood
were mixed nnd scattered everywhere,
nud all about wore abundant evidences
of the fierce nature of the conflict that
had taken place. The men, it seems,
brought none of the contents of the
cabin except tho dead body, mid left
thu personal effects of the three men,
and the provisions, of which there was
a plentiful supply. This was a great
oversight, and makes it necessary to
send up another party. On Saturday
Coroner J. C. Hughes went to Port
Moody, accompanied hy Coroner Trow,
Mr. 0. Q. Major, Mr. Jns. G. Smith,
and Mr. Wm. Moresby, governor of
tho gnol, nnd held nn inquest upon the
body of Walker. Tho following gentlemen composed the jurv: J. A,
Clarke (foreman), F. C. Hardy, Geo.
Annand, Geo, Williams, Jno. Murray,
jun., Nerval Butchart, Jos. Tays, Wm.
Smithson, W. R, Lewis, D. Murchie,
H. F. Currie, and Jos. Cote. Afier
heniing the statement of Mr. Jas. G.
Smith, who was, of course, the only
witness in the affair, and of Dr. Trew,
who made a careful post mortem, tho
jury returned the following verdict:—
"That Jas. G. Smith and D. J. Robson (since deceased) and the deceased
(J. D. Walker, tho subject of this in-
queBt) were together in a cabin at the
head of tho North arm of Burrard Inlet on Wednesday, tho 13th inst., and
that the said J. D. Walker, without
any provocation or just cause, did
shoot the said D. J. Robson (of which
wound ho hns since died), and did also
shoot nnd wound 'the said Jas. G.
Smith, and did assault and try and endeavor to kill the said Jns. G. Smith
with a butcher knifo, and thnt tho said
Jns. G. Smith did thon and thero, in
defence of his own life aud that of the
snid D. J. Robson, inevitably beat nnd
inflict on the head of the Baid Joo. D.
Walker, with a stick of wood, certain
divers mortal blows and bruises iu defence of himself, ub it was lawful to do,
of which the said Jno. D. Walker did
languish and die betweon the 13th and
14th instant, and so the jurors aforesaid, on tlieir oaths aforesaid, do say
that the said Jas. G. Smith, in defence of himsolf and tho said Daniel J.
Robson, in manner aforesaid nnd by
the means aforesaid, the siud Jno. D.
Walker did kill nud slay." Walker's
remains were brought ovor to this city,
and wero buried Inst Monday in tho
public cemetery nn Douglas st. There
aro several people who hold tho theory
that Walker wub perfectly compos
mentis, and deliberately premeditated
und planned the murder, aud invited
Mr. Robson out to Iho inlot for that
express purpose. His intention was
thnt Mr, Robson only should go with
him, but tho deceased refused to no
without his partner, Mr. Smith. Oth
ers believe that his mind was affected
by the spree in which he had been indulging, mul wo aro inclined to tako
thin viow. As there wiib no unfriendly
feeling among the parties we aro wholly at a loss to find a sufficient motive
for so terrible an uct premeditated and
planned by a man whose mind was
healthy und sound.

AldekGhove, Jan. 15.—Evory thing
here now has quite an arctic appearance, there having boen a fall of n few
incheBuf the "beautiful" on Wednesday night last. This snow fall was
accompanied with a very strong wind
which blow down numbers of the
standing Iir trees, and in ono instance
n building under construction; but no
worse damage is yet roported. Settlers
atill continue coming iu nnd taking
claims, and all that is lacking to give
the impetus and energy so necessary
to now settlements is—not tho want of
energetic and industrious citizens—but
a moro satisfactory and definite form
of legislation governing Dominion
hinds in this province. The settlers
along the township line from the Fraser river south are petitioning the governmont for n grant of money for the
purpose of opening during the Incoming summer tho township lino between
townships 11 it 14, also 10 & 13,
through to boundary line. This line,
were it open, would be of immense
benelit to this district generally, and
us it will be an easy and comparatively
smooth road to opon they hope their
request will bo considered and complied with, though they are by no
means insensible as to what the government hns dono for them. If they
Bhould be so fortunate as to get thc
road opened, at least to the river, they
will build a wharf which will be known
as tho "Aldergrove Landing," whore
freight for this settlement can be distributed almost at home. This line is
settled entirely from river tu boundary
line, on which is a colony of Swede or
German settlers who have at present
no means of outlet or ingress only into
Washington Territory, The settlement ulso expects to have a school
elected and opened sometime during
tho coming summer, and it iB to bo
hoped this will be accomplished without the difficulty experienced in many
localities, that is, the selection of the
position nf tho school.
in an address at Dublin today, said that
Parnell hoped to obtain a settlement of
the Irish question from Gladstone, The
speaker trusted the hope would he
realized, and said the result would not
be witnessed of desperate men, despairing of securiug freedom by constitutional
means, having recourse to dynamite and
the dagger of the assassin. The Daily
News says there nre rumors that the
government meditates a coup d'etat in
Ireland, and that among the changes
contemplated is tho appointment of General Viscount Wolseley to be commander
of tho military forces there.

KM FBOM AU PARTS Of THE WOMJ.
London, Jan. 6.—Henry M. Stanley
docs not believe that Bishop Hannington,
the missionary, seized by tlie king of
Mombassa, in Central Africa, has been
put to death. The chief danger, he
says, lies In the ambition of the whites.
The worst news Mr. Stanley has heard
from Zanzibar lately was the arrival of
Fischer's expedition at Kagel, It was
most unfortunate that his arrival at one
point of Nyanza should coincide with
Bishop Hannington's arrival at another
point. The king might have thought
that the Germans were coming
from all quarters, being unable to
distinguish between Englishmen and
Germans. Members of the missionary
society agree with Mr. Stanley in believing that Bishop Hannington is still
alive. Mombassa ia not in Central
Africa, as stated, but Is on the east coast
abovo Zanzibar, to which it is subject.

An Electrlfleti Party-
Mr. William Hammer gave nn electric supper to a few old classmates ou
New Year's Eve. It was like an evening iu sheol. Mr. Hammer has been
associated with Edison, the great electrician, for Buch a long timo and haB
become bo steeped in electricity that it
fairly oozes out at his finger tips, He
carries lightning nbout in his pockets
as carelessly as a boy would carry a
toad. His pretty,little home at No. 23
Rowland street is built upon Leyden
jars and batteries and queer electrical
inventions, and everything about tho
place from opening thc front gate to
blacking shoes is done by electricity.
You can't walk across the threshold
without ringing bolls or soundhi" burglar alarms, or lighting tho gas, or
doing some odd thing that you nover
dreamed of doing. Thursday evening
Mr. Hammer had all tho hidden wires
about his house connected so as to give
his twenty truests a lively time. As
far as outward appearances went, the
parlors and dining-room looked like
any other well-furnished apartments.
Hut hidden beneath tho carpets and in
the walls and ceilings were strange
systems of wires and buttons and signals that made the place
like one or the enchanted castles
we used to read about in fairy tale
days. You enter the gate, and the
house appears dark, but as your foot
touches the lower stop three electric
lights blaze out, and the number of
the house appears in bright relief.
The next step sets a bell to jingling,
and tho third throws open the door,
and lights the gas iu tho hall by electricity, transmitted by the pressure of
the foot. Inside the hall thero is an
odd-looking foot-rest attached to tho
hat-rack, and by pressing a button a
pair of brushes come out and shine
your shoos. Upstairs, where you remove your wraps, thore is a bedroom
that would be worth it fort uno to n
lazy man. By touching your head to
the pillow the gas, fifteen feet nwny, is
extinguished, aud by pressing a knob
at the foot of the bed it jb lit again.
Outside tho door a clockwork attachment BoundB a drum at the proper
waking timo, aud if the occupant does
not get up after lifteen mimitcs's
grace, the bod rises on its hind legs
and
DUMPS THE SLEEPER OUT ON THE FLOOR,
In the parlorB the guests who had
come early stood about in little groups.
Nobody eat down, although ottomans
and sofas nnd chairs were scattered
through Iho rooms. Every new-comer
was cordially greeted and a chair
pushed toward lum, Tf ho sat down
—as he usually did—the chair either
doubled up on him, or started for thu
door with him, or disappeared, ur com*
pletely exploded. If ho sat mi the
sofa he set a banjo to playing on the
opposite wall, and a drum to beating;
or if he took another seat thu movement put out the lights and introduced
queer phosphorescent figures. No man
knew when he waB safe, although thero
were a few apparently safe seals. In
one of these Humorist Brown wns telling a very funny story: he had left
electricity vory far behind, and just as
he reaohed tho climax a pretty, funnel-
shaped Japanese affair, like a big dunco
cap, that ornamented the coiling overhead, dropped quietly down nnd covered him up, silently extinguishing the
story and tho story-teller.
HOMEBODY  PROPOSED MUSIC,
And half of a selection went vory nicely
on the piano. But just as everyone
became interested somothiug seemed
to give nay, and instead of strings the
keys boat upon a horrible jangle of
Songs and drums and bolls and every
ind nf noiBc-producing implement.
But. the worst came iu the dining-
room. About 11 o'cloek tho twenty
guests Hat down to a table loaded with
the usual delicacies. At lhe hnnd a
figure presided. At a signal the great
god began to talk (phonogrnphicnlly),
aud made a welcome address. Ho wore
electric lights for shirt-studs, a bibulous red light for a nose, and his gr- en
eyes had tbu snapof lightning in thein,
whilo blue bolts bhized from his
pooket,   The table seemed bewitched.
Touch n knife or fork and it put out
the lights and introduced queer sights.
Put your spoon into a dish of creuni
and it flared up in great columns of
green and red Haines many feet high,
like a fountain of fire.   Reach for
AN INNOCENT-LOOKINC! .SANDWICH
and it rang a bell inside, wliere tho
meat ought to be. Try to pick up an
orange and a drum beat inside. Help
yourself to pudding, aud the dish und
all slid silently into tho grent unknown.
Ask for Malaga grupflfl and find thnt
an electric light Hushed from each oue
as you pulled tho stem. Pour a glass
of lemonade nud it was incandescent
und full of lire ns it touched your lips.
And yet everything wns gbhd to eat
and the cnHee wns cooked hy electricity. And when the little clock
tinkled out 12, ushering iu the new
year, and the chimes from the distant
churches cann; soltly into thu room,
pandemonium seemed to have changed
places with the modest dlhihg-roouui.
Two big cannon unexpectedly went oil'
with n suddenness that rolled every
man back from tho Inblu, the lights
disappeared, gouga under each chair
beat a tnttu, and two bricks dropped
oil' ii chimney. For a fow minutes
every malignant noise ever invented
was piled ou top of one another, and
then silence nnd the lights came back,
and supper was resumed ns calmly ns
if such n thing as a scare hnd never
been known. After supper electric

Toronto Exhibition.
THE DOMINION PIANO &0R0AN GO.
Speaking of the grent central cxliiln-
Kitinti opened nt Toronto on the 10th
Sept., the Toronto Globe says:
An object of spccinl attention, which
hy very rcneon of its prominence on thc
grnumls cannot escape the attention of
the most nisunl nml careless observer, is
the pavilion of the Dominion Orpnn Company. This is a separate building hut a
little distaiu'c from the south east of the
Main Htiilding. Tliis pavilion must be
about SO feet by 40 feet, with u porch or
railed pnssagewny all around it extra. It
is handsomely pninted, with mnple and
almost entire glnss section, comprising
fully one-third of its height in windows,
nnd announces to all in broad letters that
it is the pavilion of thnt company, and
that Joseph -Ruse, of (18 Kim;-street
West, represents the company. Inside
no pniiiM hnve been spared to make it attractive, and certainly its designs have
succeeded, No oue Bhould visit tho Exhibition without going through this pavilion, there ho will find a little paradise
of music. Here are decorations, handsome pictures of the Dominion factory
and of the present store room of Mr.
Ilnse, and above all, pianos and organs
of the most artistic and unique designs,
The display of these instruments is grand
indeed, and a splendid tribute to the
genius and skill of our Canadian manufacturers, Pianos nnd organs of every
style and artistic design are found lier%
—a parlor grand, squares, nnd uprights
of rose-n'ood, satin-wood with walnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut. A double manual
and pedal luiss organ, with handsome
pipe ton, faces the visitor nt tho extreme
end ns lie enters this pavilion. For company are organs of every stylo and design to suit the purchaser, The Company also exhibit with the degree of
triumph and merit tho fact is Worthy of
a i-jibli* despntch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing that nt a Orand
National Exhibition lioltl thero the Company hnd just carried off the lirst prize
over all competitors for its instruments,
This is certainly remarkable, though
when tho rapid rise of this Compnny to
public favor and confidence is considered,
not so remarknble as at first might seem.
The Company's success In honors, home
and iuternntionnl, is Roinetlilng remarkable. The exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive and will amply repay
a personal inspection and visit.
Sir Charles Tapper on Wednesday last
emphasized the high compliment ho paid
the Dominion Organ and nano Company
at tho opening of the Loudon Fair. In
his address from the platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of the great imp«
tiiB Exhibitions gave to every industry
represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit at the Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, nnd cited as an 11*
lustration of the wonderful progress this
country ih mnking, the success of the
Dominion Orgnn and I'iano Company
there. He said that this Compnny (the
Dominion Orgnn and Piano Company)
hail not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest thc nidges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, from England, France, and Germany, the very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skill nnd acquirements in musical knowledge, but these judges, who
comprised Borne of their ablest and best
musicians, had declared further that the
instruments of this company were superior to any they had ever seen, heard, or
examined, With such a compliment
from such u sourco, iu addition to their
success at this Exhibition, the Company
ought to feel content.

1 TRUE BASIS-THE HOLY TRINITY IN UNITY.
(,.l stated iu a former article that civil
otvernment wus a part of God's moral
■Bvernment.    Indeed it enters largely
Ifjtu the  working out   of  the grand
_Jiome nf redemption, nnd is securely
"funded on the Divine Trinity itsolf.
-sence us a divine institution it ought
r be rogarded with that sacredness
i at   rightly  belongs  to any  other
. ivine institution.   Heucelir  makers
"id law-administrators ought  to  be
)*tuated in heart and lifo by principles
perfect harmony with the author of
vil government.   No person who deliberately violates  moral law ia fit to
.administer civil law.   What, for ta-
mice, must be tho feelings of a judge
)r<Iio passes sontnnco on the violator of
emiere human law, "hen ho himself is
ii.insciou3 of being u hunch odf old mow
tilty with respect to tho violation of
'■■Divine law 1
|uIn order tn fully realize tho.Divine
nportanoe of civil government it will
:ei necessary to state iti mere outline
:ehut tho Biblo teaches respecting lhe
jtoly   Trinity.    In   doing so I shall
Know   tho   theological dogmas that
Mirken    council    by   wurda  without
touowlodge:     such    as    "undivided
isence,"  ''of   one   substance,"  "tho
1u:ernal sutiship," "not threo persona
nt   one person," "one in essence,"
threo porsuns nro distinct but nut
.i!parate," ''eternally proceeding from
io father," which are unscriptural,
v^iwnrrantable and some of them utter-
-„• repugnant to common sense.
. The Bible saya, "For thero arc three
w\at   bear   witness   in   heaven,   the
oiiather,   the   Word,  and   tlio   Holy
t,nirit,"   1st .lohn 0:7;  John   15:20;
Tatt. 23:19;  Luke 1:96, and many
libber passages.   Thc Father, the Son,
iuid   tlie   Holy Spirit constitute tlie
..rinity.   1. The term "Father" is a
••■reciotiB name and the Saviour, as the
non of man delighted in it.    Tho first
^rson  in the Holy Trinity assumed
ie endearing namo of Father whon lio
t-tid, "Thou art my son, tliis day liavo
y-begotten thee," i.e., "adopted" thee,
's. 2:7.   The term begotten or adopt-
™i applies to the Messiah with respect
\vi his appointment as mediator, his
jjjpneeption, nativity, baptism, trans*
gurati'in, and resurrection, as tho Son
°V tho scheme of redemption. Through
niiia precious name of "Father" we are
nabled to  form  many beautiful and
unobliny thoughts of God, and tt) ex*
erienco many just nnd delightful im-
reaaions resnecting him that we cuuld
ot, perhaps by any possibility otherwise have.    Only think of tho tones
nd warm affections that cluster around
"^le   thought   of  a   kind and loving
Otther.    The very idea of a father car-
Jos with it that of forethought, caro,
revision, protection, deep anxiety for
Cur welfare, RIGHT TO GOVERN,
Ind many other agreeable things that
ttach to no other relation,
N The "Son" ia the second person in the
tloly Trinity, and is the co-relative of
father, nnd could not be dispensed
/ith   in. tho divine scheme  of the
coapol of  infinite love.     Thu term
t'Sun" as applied to God refers to tho
.'Iodiatur, tho  Messiah, the Word in-
arnate—God manifest   iu the flesh;
iur God seut forth his Son made of a
-roman—a pure virgin—"made," orig*
nated in part by direct creation, and
ii part by the ordinary physiological
hws (if human nature, and both ma-
.ured by thom.    Hence, he was both

■hrist ns a "Smi," and at the maimer
,i   which   He   lovingly  obeyed nnd
icnored  His Father in all the varied
.ircumstancea nud conditions in which
3e was placed, and how cheerfully,
irmnptly,   and   continually  ho  perorated all the momentous and ardu-
*U8 duties required of him amid the
everest trials thnt over encompassed
mtnanity, we learn much of the true
httracter of God the Fathor as a sovereign   ruler, and of  the duties we
iwe to liim as our moral governor, to
tur pin oi    who are by htm clothed

The Turning Polfita in Life.
Every now and then, in history, or
in the history of literature and science,
we find somu striking instance of turning-points hi life. On auch ground
we aee how n scandal about a bracelet,
the prohibition of u banquet,
wrought a revolution, and precipitated
n dynasty. Think of Crabbe's timorously calling on Edmund Burke, and
inducing liim to look at his poetry, I
have tm doubt but Burke was very
busy. But with lightning glance lie
looked over tho lines and satisfied himself lhat real "cuius was there, Wheu
Crabbu loft the statesman he was made
a man. Burke whb generous and enlightened, and had made up his mind
to take care of him. Or louk at Faro
day. He wna only a poor bookseller's
boy, working hard and honestly, but
disliking his employment, and inspired
withapurothiratfoi'kiiowledgo. He had
managed somehow or other to hoar the
great chemist, Humphrey Davy, at tho
Royal Institution; and with trembling
solicitude, lie sends him a copy of the
notes he haa made uf his lectures. The
result is that Michael Faraday mcemiB
an appointment at the Royal Institution, aud lays tlio foundation of his
jplcndid and beneficent career. Looking back to tho past, that was a great
moment in the life of Columbus, when,
resting on a sultry day beneath the
fierce Spanish ami, he asked for a drink
if cold water at a convent door. The
Prim- entered into conversation with
him, and—atrnck by his appearance,
and afterwards by the magnificent simplicity of his ideas—gave him the Introduction be so aorely needed: and
thus Columbus gave to Columbus gave
to Castile and Arragon a new world.—
English Paper,
Serving u Warrant.
From Joel Chandler Harris' humorous nnd dramatic story, "Trouble on
Lost Mountain," in the 'January Oen*
tiinj, wo take this characteristic incident of mountain lifo in Northern
Georgia: "On one occasion shortly
after the war, Abo had gono to tho
littlo country town on business, and
had been vexed into laying rough
hands on one of the prominent citizens
who was a trifle under tiie influence of
liquor. A warrant was issued, and
Dave McLendou, the sheriff uf the
county, a stumpy littlo man, whoso
boldness and prudence made him the
terror <-f criminals, was aont to serve
Abe, who was on the lookout fm*
some such visitation, .saw him coining,
and prepared himself. Ho. stood in
tho doorway, witli his ritlo flung carelessly across his left arm,
" 'Hold on thar, Dave!' lie cried, as
tho latter came up. The sheriff, knowing hia man, halted.
' 'I hate to fiing away my manners,
Davo,' ho went on, 'but folks is gittin1
to bo mighty funny theso days. A
man's oblcoged to s'arch hia beat
frien's 'fore he kin find out their
wliich-away s. Dave, whnt sort of a
dockymunt is you got ag'n' me V
'"'I got a warrant, Abe,'said the
sheriff, pleasantly.
" 'Well, Dave, hit won't fetch me,'
aaid Abe.
"'Oh, yes!' said tho sheriff. 'Yes
it will, Abo. I bin .i-uain' these kind
er warrants a mighty long time, au'
thoy totches a feller every whack.'
" 'Now, I'll tell you what, Dave,'
said Abe, patting his riflo, 'X got a
ddekyment hero that'll fetch you a
blame sight quicker'n your docky-
ment'll fetch me; an' I tell you right
now, plain an' fiat, I hain't a-gwine to
be drug aroun' an' slapped in jail.'
"Tlie sheriff leaned carelessly
against the rail fence in the attitude of
a man who is willing to argue an inter
eating question
" 'Well, I tell you how I feel about
it, Abe,' said tho sheriff, speaking vory
slowly. 'You kin Bhoot me, bat you
cun't shoot the law. Bang away at
me, an' thar's another warrant after
you. This yor ono what I'm already
got don't amount to shucks, so you'd
botter fling on your coat, saddle your
horae, an' go right along wi' me thus
ez neighborly ez you please.'
"'Dave,' said Abe, 'if you como in
at that gate you er n-goner.'
■■ Well, Abo,' the sheriff replied, 'I
'lowed you'd kick; I know what human
natur'on those hills is, an'so I I lies
axed some er tho boys to come along,
They or right down thar in the holler.
They hain't got no mo' idea what I
come fer'u thu man in the moon; yet
they'd make a mighty peart posse.
Tooby shoro, a groat big man liko you
ain't afeard fer ter face a littlo bit or
law.'
"Aho Eightower hesitated a moment, and then wont into the House.
In a fow minutes lio issued forth and
went out tu tho galo whero the sheriff
was, The faces of tho two mon were
a study. Neither betrayed any emotion nor alluded to ttio warrant. The
sheriff naked nfter the "crap,' and Abe
told hiin it was 'middlin' peart,' and
aaked him to go into the house and
mako himaelf nt home until tlm horse
could be saddled. After a while the
two rode away. Once during thy ride
Abu aaid:
" 'I'm might glad itwa'nt that feller
what run agi'n you laat fall, Davo.'
" 'Why?'' asked the Sheriff.
" 'Reknzu I'd 'a' plugged him, certain nu' sliore,' said Abe.
"'Well,'said thu sheriff, laughing,
'I wuss a-wishin' mighty hard thee
about thnt time thnt t'other feller had
got 'leeted.'"
Tho method pursued in locating obstructions in the pneumatic tubes in
Raria-is that t. simply firing a pistol
into the tube. The resulting wave of
campressed air, traversing the tube at
the rato of 1,000 feet a aecond, strikes
tlio impediment, and is thon deflected
back to its origin, where it .strike-
against a delicate diaphragm, its arrival being recorded electrically upon a
very Bensitive chronograph, on which,
nls<!, the instant of firing tho pistol
hns been recorded previously. The
wave of aouud on reaching tho diaphragm is recorded, ami thenoe reflected buck, a second time striking
tho obstacle, and returning to the
diaphragm, Thia operation being several times repeated, several successive
measurements aru thus mnde of the
timo required by the sound wave to
traverse to and fro within tho pneumatic tube. Other means havo beon
resorted to for the accomplishment of
the purpose in question, but none
havt proved equal to this.
