SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Pauloii Piivsics.—An astonishing experiment may be performed
with no apparatus but a piece of
string live or six feet long. A person's hand being held over his ears,
this string is passed around his head
by another person, who holds both
ends in ono hand, and by drawing
the fingers or nails of the other hand
over the cord produces upon the
tympanum of the subject impressions
of almost startling intensity. Sharp
peals of thunder, changing into a
a distant and prolonged rumbling,
are' effects that moy be readily
given.
Petroleum Fobsiatiox. — The
theory is held by Prof. Mendeleef
that petroleum is not of animal or
vegetable origin, as is generally supposed, but is produced by water
whioh penetrates the earth's crust
und comes in contact with glowing
carbides of metals, especially of
iron. Tho wator is decomposed into its constituent gases, the oxygen
uniting with the iron, while the
hydrogen takes up tho carbon, and
ascends to a higher region, where
part of it is condensed into mineral
oil, and part remains as natural gas,
to escape wherever and whenever it
can find an outlet. If this assumption is correct, nnd a sufficient store
of metallic carbides is contained in
the earth's interior, petroleum may
continue to be formed almost indefinitely, and yield a supply of fuel
long after the coal has become exhausted. Prof. Mendeleef supports
his views by producing artificial petroleum iu a manner similar to thut
by which lie believes the natural
product is made.
A Man-Measuring Institution.
—A knowledge of how one's powers
compare with those of his fellows
might be of advantage in several
ways, such as in showing what weak
points need strengthening, in determining the work best suited to
the individual, and in suggesting
the attributes which a life-partner
should possess. Mr. Francis Galton
has long been engaged in perfecting
apparatus for the accurate measurement of all the bodily faculties, and
is row considering the establishment
of a permanent anthropometric laboratory, similar in plan to the tern
porary one that recently proved so
popular in London. For a small
fee, this laboratory would provide
accurate measurements not only of a
person's height, weight, chest capacity, muscular strength, and swiftness, but of the efficiency of his
various senses, and even of certain
limits of his mental power. Duplicates of theso measurements would
bo presorved, some for private reference only, and others for public use.
A library would bo connected with
the institution, in which would be
placed such documents, together
with family records and works bearing on anthropology, and instructions
for home-measurement would he
given.
The Oat Tribe.—The true cats
are embraced by the genus Felis,
which includes some fifty species.
These nro distributed over evory
portion of the globe except Australia
and the Soutli Pacifio islands, though
most abundantly developed in the
hot latitudes. According to Heil-
prin, the better known American
forms arc the jaguar, whoso range
comprises the entire region included
between Patagonia and Texas; the
cougar or puma, with probably the
most extended north nnd soutli
range of any mammalian species—
Patagonia to the sixtieth parallel of
north latitude; the ocelot, which, in
one or other of its several varieties,
ranges from Arkansas through Texas
and Mexico to Patagonia; the nearly equally distributed margay—Moxico to Paraguay—and several allied
species of small intertropical " tiger-
cats;" the jaguarundi and eyra, unspotted cats ranging from Paraguay
to the northern boundary of Mexico;
the Chilian colocollo; the painpus-
cat; and the lynx, which inhabits
tho greater part of the American
continent nortli of Mexico. Prominent among tho old world cats aro
the lion, the tiger, the panther or
leopard, the ounce or irbis, the
spotted tiger, the servul, the cheetah,
and tho lynx. No form of cat may
bo said to bo conmon to Europe nnd
America, though thero aro varieties
of lynx in both, as well as in Asia
and Africa. The cougar is often inaccurately called tho " panther" in
America, while tho American "wildcat" is a kind of lynx. Tho wildcat proper, Fells oatus, extends its
domain over the continent and
islands of Europe. It is not, as is
frequently supposed, the ancestor of
tho domestic animal, this place being
now generally oonccded to the
Egyptian ont (j, maniculuta).

IjAST MUlirS DESPATCHES.
BEATEN WITH MtASS  KNUCKLES.
London, Jan. 9,—The physician
who examined the body of Archibald
McNeill, tho reporter from the Sportsman w!io waa found dead on Boulogne
Sands, agree that he waa beaten with
brass knuckles tu a state of insensibility, then robbed and drowned. The relatives of McNeill complain bitterly
of the apathy of the French police in
the matter of searching for his murderers. The body will arrive in London
to-morrow.
Tho Maharajah of Mysore, desiring
to share in the defence of India, as he
say.--, has placed his entire military resources at the disposal of tho viceroy,
Lord Dufferin, Large bodies of
Thibetiana are entering Sikltim and to
prevent further movements of this
kind, it is expected that the Indian
government will be compelled to make
an immediiito display of military
force on the frontier.
THE FISHERIES COMMISSION.
Washington, Jan. 9.—Sir Clwrlra
and Ludy Tuppor arrived iu Washington late last evening and wont at once
tu the Arlington Hotel. Lady Tupper
has quite recovered from her recent
serious illness that summoned Sir
Charles tu Winnipeg. Before the
telegram announcing Sir Charles' inability to reach Washington on Saturday was received, it was decided by the
other members uf the fishery commission already iu town to, postpone the
arranged meeting of the conference
from Stturday until Monday at two
o'clock. The meeting was not postponed because of the telegram. The
conference will meet Bemi-wcekly.
None of the commissioners will haznrd
a guess as to the time of the final adjournment, but indications point to
the conclusion that the conferences
will continue several weeks.
MITCHELL IS   HIGH   FEATHER.
Dublin, Jan. 0.—Kilrain s»id Mitchell was not slow to speak of his pending bouts with Sullivan, hut expressed
again his confidence of victory. "People seem tho think that Sullivan h
sure tn do mo, and then I am such a
little follow. I will take tho chances,
but never mind. When Sullivan licks
me you'll see white blackbirds in
O'Connell street."
THIS MORNING'S DESPATCHES.
CANADIAN DEFENSES TO   BE   STRENGTH
ENED.
Ottawa, Jan.   10.—The    British
government has renewed ita request
that the Dominion government increase the small amount annually expended on the defenses of the country
which now amounts to only 25 cents
per capita of tho population. In the
event of uny really military operations
Canada would bo almost entirely dependent upon Great Britain. Immediate action will be taken on the
demand which comes from Croat Britain, and parliament will be asked to
vote alargely increased sum for military
purposes during iho coining session.
TERRIBLE RAILWAY ACCIDENT.
Cheyenne, Jan. 10.—The east
bound mail aud express, with Scott
Vermillion, Cunductor, collided with a
freight train yesterdny near Edson.
Two emigrant cars wore toloscoped and

son of Mrs. Street, of London, was
burned to a crisp aud the live mouths
old infant of Mra. Johnson died from
exposure. Twolvo other persons were
injured. Conductor Vermillion has
been missing since tho accident. Unnerved by the sight of the suffering,
the puss-Migors think he became insane
and fled to the hills where he was
frozen to death in tho blizzard which
was raging at the time of tho accident,
with thermometer twenty Ijelow   zero.
THE CABINET IN TROUBLE.
WlNNlPEO, Jan. 10.—It is announced to-day that differences havo arisen

Marquis Campos line of steamers hns
oollttpsorli Orders have been received

competition of tho Pacific mail.
lamak's appointment secured.
Washington, Jan. 10. — Sonator
Stowart'sloltor announcing his intention of voting for tho confirmation of
Secretary Lamar for the supremo
bench has scattered consternation
among Lamar's opponents. Senators
Stanford, Jones, of Nevada, Sawyer,
of Wisconsin, Teller, of Colorado, and
porhnpB the Oregon senators will vote
for Lamar, as well ns Stewart. This
insures his confirmation.
J4ERIOUS CHARGE,
Wheeling, \V. Vii., Jan, 10.—
Frank Failoune, a prominent citizen
and a large holder of real estate, has
been arrested on a oharge of setting
tire to his dwelling in tlie night. The
offense is punishable under the statutes
of this state with death. The prison--
er owns large blocks of real estate, Iti-1
eluding several stores. Failoune's
son worked for a druggist firm for ser»
cral years and last April bought them

number of diamonds valued at $10,000
from a Utica jeweler to sell, but had
retained them and fled.
THIS AFTERNOON'S DESPATCHES,
HEAVY DAMAGES.
New York, Jan. 10.—The jury in
the Campbell-Arbucklo breach of
promise case awarded the plaintiff
$45,000 this morning. Arbackle's attorney then moved to sat aside tht
verdict aB excessive and against the
right evidence. This was denied, but
he was allowed to stay execution and
enter judgment for 45 days in which
timo he can decide whether to pay the
$45,000 or appeal the case. The latter
course will probably be adopted.
A MINISTER SUICIDES.
London, Jan. 10.—Rev. John Low*
ther, rector at Balton, near Wigtown,
Scotland, to-day shot aud killed himself. He was to be summoned before
the court to answer the oharge of indecent assault on a servant. The deceased waa a cousin of Lord Lonsdale

f-tfMi Sserttarr. gailg fritish Columbian
Tnndar Evening, Jan. IO, 1888.
Thero seems to be a prospect tlmt
we shall this year have a council
willing and able to conduct public
business in such a way as to enable
the city to reap the benolit of the
favorable circumstances in which
it is placed. Wo think it will be
admitted by all that tho time bus
eomo when a spirited policy should
characterise tho city government.
There are several matters of great
public interest which have many
times come up for consideration,
and have been laid aside because of
. apparent lack of ability to deal with
them. These matters are pressing
with increasing earnestness for solution, and some of them cannot be
longer neglected without danger to
the best interests of the oity. Thero
is tho establishment of a markot, for
instance, a sewerago system, water
works, ifco., and the opening up of
streets. If wo wish to stand still
whilo others are moving on wc can
do so by simply doing nothing; but
if we have any ambition to keep the
place which belongs to us by right,
and which a reasonable amount of
energy will retain to us, we must
not go to sleep. The mayor elect
is in favor of these measures, and
wo believe he will be supported
by a majority of thoso whom the
people will elect as councillors.
There is no longer any doubt but
the city will have to borrow, and
when the money has been borrowed
it is of tho greatest importance that
it should bo expended with judgment and economy. There are
levelheaded men among the candidates—men who may be relied on
to condt'ct our business with prudence, and will not permit tlieir
selfishness to stand iu tho way of
progress.   Let them be elected.
There are undoubtedly circumstances under which it would seem
that men are justified in striking.
The tendency of the present time
is towards monopoly, and where
monopoly is possible, capitalists are
very apt to drift into it. When a
man finds a good thing he wants to
prevent others from taking it away
from him, and if he is ablo to protect himself by acts of parliament,
or in other ways, he will do so. If
several persons lind it unprofitable
to compete with each other, they
form what is known as a "combine,"
that is, they agree to raise the price
of the article they control and pool
the results. This tendency of capital to resist competition and become
a purely selfish agent, often lies at
the bottom of strikes. Individuals
or companies wish to reduce their
expenses so as to be able to run out
competing concerns and lay the
foundation for monopoly; or they
become too selfish to permit their
employees to receive a fair price
for a fair day's labor. Some workmen are longsutjering, and will put
up with poverty and injustice a
great while before resorting to extreme measures. But there comes
a time when patience ceases to be a
vertue, and then comes the strike.
It must be confessed, however, that
the application of the strike has
been made in many cases where it
does not seem to have been justified. Whon men feel themselves
strong in organization they are apt
to let themselves be influenced by
the same principles which go to
create monopolies. Labor organizations are most excellent in as far as
they promote the legitimate interests of the laborer. This they may
do in .many ways without at all
coming into conflict with capital.
But we go even further and say
that there are times when labor
organizations are justified in resisting the unrighteous demands of capital, and resisting to the fullest extent permitted by law and right.
It comes to be a conflict betwoen
two forces each striving for its own
ends, and, unfortunately, too often
oaring less for the means than the
end. Whero purely selfish princi-
oles prevail, and arc permitted to
have full sway, the end reached can
never be satisfactory. A miser often accumulates great riches, but of
all men, we suppose, a miser is the
most miserable. The striker, if
without sufficient cause, aims at
building up his own affairs by pulling down the affairs of others.
But in reality strikes are oftener a
loss than a gain. Mot long ago a
report was submitted to the V. S.
government by the labor commissioner showing the result of strikes
in the United States for the past
six years. From this report we find
that during the period mentioned
there were 3,903 strikes, in which
28,336 establishments were invo!
vb(1. The largest number occurred
inr 1886, there being in that year
no fewer than 1412. The number
of employees engaged in all the
strikes was 1,318,024, and one result was a reduction of 213,788 men
in the establishments where strikes
took place. In 2,182 establishments lock-outs were ordered. In
10,407 establishments the strikers
ware successful, in 3,004 partially
successful, and in 8,910 they completely-failed. In the 2,182 establishments whero lock-outs occurred,
in 564 cases the employers succed-
ed in carrying their point; in 190
cases they partially succeeded; in
1,305 they failed. During the six
years oovered by the investigation
the losses to employees by strikes
are put at §51,810,105, and by lockouts $8,131,717, making a total of
159,948,882. This is ii loss of nearly §40 to every striker. The losses
to employers through strikes were
$30,732,201, and through lock-outs
$1,105,538. The total losses to
both employers and men, therefore,
were, forthe six years, $94,113,790,
or about $15,085,033 for eaoh year.
This is a very large sum to loso,
and it is mostly lost through unreasonable stupidity and selfishness on
the part of employers, or men, or
both.

'•Win''.'" asked Teddy following With
lrirr ri'.i'iisiire 1 pace.
",.(uk wire's coming!" sniil tho horso,
nnrl llmrti \iimie) n well-conditioned cob
drawing n curt full of bonns.
".tow nice thev unroll!" aaid Teddy.
"1 shuiil-l tliiuk they must be very good,
bnt 1 never tasted any."
"1 used to (ret them hi my better days,"
laid bis companion, sorrowfully; "but I
can never hope (or tircm again."
"He's a happy fellow, isn't ho 1" said
•    Teddy, turning Iris hend slowlv round to
watch the curt going up the hill.
".Somo nre Irom lo prosperity, some to
adversity," sighed I he ol,f horse.
Ami he went on lo entertain tho donkey with his recollections of the taste oi
beans, and to draw comparisons between
their condition and that of the happy
cob.
Some hours afterward, whilo thoy wero
yet in the rond, thn cart returned oiiipiy,
,     aad while tho driver slopped toch twitu
n friend passing by, tne horso wuiked up
to tho cob.
"Good-evening, sir I Pray, what have
you dono with all your beans?"
"Left them behind," said the cob,
"Well, you're in very different circumstances from what you -core wlirrn
you passed us .this morning," said the
old horse.
"How so.?" osked tho cob.
"Can you ask'!" said tho horse. "Wero
you not drawing after you a burden of
rich delicacies that scented tbe air as you
passed?"   i
"True, I was," replied the cob; '"out
not ror my own henelit. Tho most that
I have to do wilh beans is to carry them
for the UBe of other; it's seldom I get a
taste myself."
"Ah, said Teddy to tho old horso, ns
tho cob's niast:rr drove him oil'at a smart
trot, "how little wn know of the truth of
things! I have often envied my (Jousiu
Jack, that draws a cart full of delicious
vegetables along this road every ^ntnr-
day, but I shouldn't wonder if he would
tell the samo story. No one can cat
more than enough; and although it
looks fine to have so much substance
tacked to you, 1 dare say, in most casus
whero we see it, others get more good
from it than he to whom it seoms to belong."
i So he buried his nose contcutedly in a
bunch of nettles, while the old horse
stood yet in n melancholy attitude, trying to catch the last whili of his lamented beans, of which even the empty cart
had loft a gratelul odor.
The Names of the Statu*
According to a paper read by Mr.
Hamilton II. staples beforo the American Antiquarian Society, recently, the
names of tho States haa the following
origin: New Hampshire was named after
Hampshire County, in England; Massachusetts came from tho Indian words,
"massa," great, "wndchu," mountains,
nnd "ot," at or near, the compound word
meaning "at, or near, the great hill country;" Uhode Island is believed to be
derived from tlie Hutch words, "Hoodo
Kylandt," or red island; Connecticut
i means "land on a long tidal river," from

New York came from York, England,
and New Jersey from tho island of Jersey,

nenns "Ponn's woods;" I) -inn r ■ vsu_
mined after Lord De-ln-Wnr . an r ri ii-y.
and after t'ueen Mary; *ie. n .i war

.'ueen; the Carolines after Umi'.cs '. I,
if England, anil tieorgin after King
ieorge 11; Vermont is the French for
'green mountain;" Kentucky is thought
:o have come from Indian words mean-
ng "the Long River;" Tennessee from
Indian words meaning "a curved spoon;"
Jhio from the Wyandotte word meaning

''superior-men," and Michigan from Indian words meaning "great lakes;"
Wisconsin is said to bs Algonquin for

Better Whittle Than Whine.   •
Asl was taking a walk early in September, I noticed two littlo boys on their way
to school. The small one stumbled ana
foil; and though ho was not very much
hurt, he Vegan to whine in a babyish
way—not ■ regular roaring boy cry, as
though he were hall killed, but a littlo
cross whine.
The older boy took hli hand ln a kind
and fatherly way,, and said:
"Ob, never mind, Jimmy, don't whine;
it Is a great deal better to whistle."
And he began, in the merriest war, •
cheerful boy whistle.
Jimmy tried to joiu in the whistle.
"I can't whistle tsnlceas you, Charlie,"
said he; "my lips won't pucker up good."
"Oh, that is because you have not got
SU the whine gut yet," said .Charlie;
"but you try a minuto, and the whislte
Will drive the whine away."
So he did; and tho last I saw or heard
bf the little fellows, they were whistling
away as earnestly as tliough that was tbe
chief end of Ufa.
Sympathy is a most excellent quality,
but sympathy in very small children
may sometimes de more harm than
good. A boy ot five years recently found
a colt shivering on some straw in a barn
near Granby, Oswego C6*inty, N. Y.
S>» Ify'j'lttWPiS*/ wnwooasd, and in
the kindness,of hla heart, he set the
straw on fire to make the colt warm. As
a result, both colt and barn were burned,
and the little fellow himself barely escaped.
Tho man ie higher than the teacher.
(!li:ii'rrotnr is of more importance than
intellectual training. Like begets like.
I lo who would train his pupils to be
nolile must hiiusolf ho noble. Intelligent srr.i'iliiBcting manhood can never
Ire .ii'VirlopBilinaboy, unless his teacher
ir in sympathy with his ambitions.
Life must ue brought into contact with
life. Tin liny must feel the heart throbs
of hi teacher. The instruction may be
ronvir, Imt Irauk of all ho sees the man.
Not wb it we teach but what we are
le'ayvs the most lasting impression upon
the minds of our pupils, lie who would
succeed must be worthy of confidence
and,love.—Normal Index.    _ .
Tlm Oiicfcn'B MitiiU of llunor.
A London letter-writer gives the following account of life in the royal palacer
—"The mrri.ls of honor to the rpieen earn
every penny of the trree humlr dnoun ifr
a vctrr whicli is their stipend for- 111.inn a
very .li rcrilt position. With the best of
intentions and with the kindest heart in
the world, the queen expects so much
from herself in the way of physical toil,
bo h for Inislness nnd pleasure, that Rim
may perhaps Ire excused for sometimes
forgetting tlrat the flesh, especially aristocratic llesh, is weak. The maids of
honor aro on duty for a month at a time
ami at the end of the mouth they aro
generally fit subjects for a course of'tonic
treatment. While on duty they cannot
call their souls their own. After breakfast, which they must take in their own
roo ns, they have to hold themselves iu
'n<tnnt rea iines-r to ohev the queen's
su moil's; which comes the moment sir
II nry Ponsouby quits her majesty s
presence, with th r big rod morocco
desn itch -box, containing his day's work,
un ir hisariii.
"Alter a brief 'good morning.' the
cine "ir suggnsts a little reading, nnl tire
uutiiiil riirid addresses herself to tlie pile
of papers wherein the proper passages
for hor majesty's hearing hnve already
been marked by S.r Henry. Through
coiu litis and columns of I'arliam n rrry
deoare, leading article, uud correspondence has llie pjor lady to intone her (Usui d way, often having to repeat pass rg rs,
for the queen never leaves a subject till
she has thoroughly mastered it, and is
not nt all sparing in her commands to
'just read that again, please.' The uini r
of honor is so busy minding her stops nn :
trying to modulate hor voico that sire
has little chance of understanding a tithe
of whnt sire is reading, and yet tire moment (he reading is over she has to nut

an 1 cv n thnt is spoiled for them by the
uncertainty as to whether they will be

in their apartments, for if by any chance
they should be sent for ami wore not to
be found at the mom lit, their lifo for a
day or two would not be a happv on \ so
that a stroll in tho grounds on their own
account is out of the question till afler
four o'clock, when, if the queen has departed on a drive without them, they are
irec till six, at any r.ito. On the queen s
return there is more reading nlomi, this
time of ponderous works oil heavy philosophical subjects, or else the arranging

Dust ln tho Eye.
When, in traveling, a bit of dust gets
in the eye, it is best to remain qri'ut for a
little while, as the tears may wash it
away: the flow of tears may he pro r ol'eil
from time to time by attempting to op ri
the eye. The head of a pin ro.' r I
with tho end of a pocket-hnndkcrchrc',
and moistened witii saliva, may Ire
moved about between the eyeball an I
the eyelid, and will detach tin intruder if not too firmly fixed. Anotln r
plan is to get a fellow-traveler to mi-,
the eyelid with his fingers, ami ther:
gently wipe the red mucous memlrraiu
with a moistened pocket-handkerchief,
or remove the foreign body if he can sec
it. A little piece of paper twisted toa
point is useful. A drop of olive-oil or
castor-oil introduced into the eye will
often allay pain and intolerance of light
produced by a fino irritation, OS.sand.
Singular Dfacovory oC n Lout Volume
A very valuable folio-edition suddenly
disappeared twenty-live years ago from
the Moynl Library'itt Berlin, and during
that time there appeared annually search
warrants, but all in vain. Amongst the
most eager in the search was l'*r. o., who
died recently. It has since been discnv
crerl that the Doctor hurl, during there
twenty-live years, been usrngt re folio to
raise Ids seat. Another ollleiitl o. tin

less learned essays, which still re nriiii nl
in manuscript, but which he w is very
desirous should be published, leaving orders to that effect for lis executors, tm

written in a cipher of his own invention,
of which he had forgotten to leave tlie
key.

liocent weather charts of tho British
Meteorological Council show that durin'

high barometer is situated iu tbe mid-
Atlantic south of the parallel of III de

Your Children
Are constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Wliooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to the throat and
lungs. For such ailments, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral, promptly ndminis.
tered, affords speedy relief and cure.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our ohildren wore
afflicted, we used, during tho past winter, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For tins affection, we
consider this preparation the most efficacious of all the medicines which havo
come to our knowledge— Mary Park-
hurst, Preceptress, Home for Little
Wanderers, Doucostcr, Md.
My ohildren havo heen peculiarly subject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
(ind any eflectivo remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Poctoral. This propiiration relieves tho
difficulty of breathing and invariably
cures tlio complaint.—-David G. Storks,
Chatham, Columbia Co,, N. Y.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
In my family fur many yearn, and
have found it especially valuable in
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
all Irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to tlie lungs, and quickly subdues anv tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. ii. Wellington, Plainvillo, Mich.
I find no mciliclno so effective, for
Croup and Whooping Cough, as Ayer's
Clhorry Pectoral. It saved tho life of my
littlo hoy, only six months old, carrying
Idm safely through the worst caso of
Whooping Cough I ever saw.—Jane

A HOME~COMPANY,
This, Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Security offered to oolicy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business in Canada,
It has no schemes of insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holderscunnotbo misled as to thofrcou-
tracts.
Its statements to the public ean be readily understood, its cash statement showing every Item of income and bow expended.
Its position isascertolned annually from
a detailed valuation In which every Item
of liability is Included.
Its progress has been unexampled in
the history of insurance in Canada.
Its policies are indisputable after three
years, and non-for/eltnule after two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed upon nn equitable basis. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
tho uniform bonus plan of distribution.

The steamers Premier and Yosemito
left Vancouver together yesterday and
the general supposition is that a race
took plaoe between them. There being considerable rivalry between tho
vessels as to which can show the most
speed there is no doubt but a very
lively contest ensued. Tho steamers
have had a couple of brushes, each
winning a heat, and, providing wind
and weathor were favorable, tho race

During tlio yoar 1887 there wore
1>40 applications to register transfers of

Civic Elections.
Mr. Dickinson was yesterday elected
mayor of Westminster for tho Ilth
time. We believe ho has never appealed to tho people unsuccessfully
during a residence of over 30 years.
Few men are able to boast of audi a
record. In St. Patrick's ward there
will be no contest, Messrs. DeBeck
and Calbick being returned without
opposition. In St. George's ward
there are 4 candidates, II. Elliott, W.
li. Shiles, T. R. Pearson, and A. M.
Herring, Thore are 3 councillors to
be elected for this ward. In St. Andrew's ward the candidates are John
Roid, II. Hoy and Thos. Ovens, For
this ward two councillors aro to be
elected. We hope our citizens will not
lose sight of tho fire department election. For the position of chief on
gineerS. H. Webb aeelta re-election,
and he is opposed by W. J. Oorbott,
Harry Read und Joseph Henley aro
candidates for the position of assistant
engineer. Every elector can vote iu
the firo department election at llie
same time as they vote for councillor's,
and in St. Patrick's ward, where there
is no contest for councillors, tho ratepayers will have an opportunity to
voto for chief and assistant engineer
all the same.
Off for the Oiil Country*
Mr. Georgo Black and Mr. Samuel
Brighouse, of Hastings, leave for tho
old country on Friday, where they will
revisit the scenes of their curlier lives
and renew the friendships contracted in
youtti. Mr. Black is a native of
Skene, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, whioh
place ho loft in 1854 to try his fortunes
in America. How well ho succeeded
in amauring a nice little fortune every
one knnWB, and none begrudges it lo a
man with a hand so free and a heart so
open. Mr. Black spent four years in
California aud then came to this province, whom he hits lived ever since.
This will bu his first visit to "Bonnie
Scotland " since leaving it, and all his
old friends wish that he may have a
Hght royal time of it and a safe return
back. Mr. Black will take hla daughter with bim, who he intends t> place
in a private sohool for a year or two tu
complete hor education, Alderman
Samuel Brighouse, of Vancouver, hails
from Huddursfiuld, England, and came
to tho province in 18112, Ho is another of our successful men but bears
the honors ho hat won in n vory
modest nnd unassuming manner. Hu
was one of tho lirst fottlers on Lulu
Island and is one of the best known
men on the lower Fraser. Mr. Brighouse paid a visit to England some 12
years ago and this visit he expects will
ba his last. He came lo America first
on tlie far-famed Great Eastern, when
sho was running as a passenger steamer between Liverpool and Now York.
Both gentlemen expect to bo absent
about 3 months, and we join with their
many friends in wishing them a safe
und pleasant journey and n quick re-
Personal.

Tbe Battery Supper.
No. 1 Battery B.C.G. 4, paraded in
tho Drill Shed lust night at 8 o'clock
and were put through it number of
company movements by ('apt. Role.
There was a large turnout, only n fow
men out of the number cnrollod being
absent. Tho drill was very creditably
performed and the inon presented a
vory fino appearance. Capt. Bole had
previously signified his intention of
giving tlie company a supper nnd had
invited ns guests the officers of the
rifle company along with a few others.
About 9 o'clock tho battery, under
Lieut Mowat, wero marchod down to
tlie Club, where tbo supper was in
readiness. Capt. Pule assumed tho
head of the table, being supported on
either sido by his brother officers and
guests, and the long tablo tbat van
down tho centre of the room was lined
with thu manly forms of the battery
men. Oysters in every shape and form
stinted the light, which was kept up
with much vigor nnd application until
the desert was brought on, Tlie first
toast of tho evening was "The Queen,"
which was drunk with the usual honors.
"Our Guests" waa drunk in a very enthusiastic manner by tho ontire battery, tho mon singing "They're jolly
good fellows " in fino style.
Capt. Scoullar was the lirst to respond, and, after thanking tho host
for the kind manner in which tho
toast had been drunk, proceeded to
congratulate Copt. Bole and the
officers of the buttery on tho fino lot
of men they had tho honor to command. Referring to his own company tho Captain paid ho of course
took moro interest in it than the battery, hut at tbe aapio time he bad the
welfare of the latter at heart also.
When inspection came round and the
deputy adjutant general gave out publicly that the two Westminster corps
wero tho most efficient aud best drilled
in tho province, he would feel as proud
of the honor conferred on tho battery
as nn his own company.
Lieut. Doane congratulated the officers of the battery on tho parade that
evening and complimented Captain
Bole .on the efficient .ratatefof his command, which wus a credit botli to tho
service aud to the city.
Lieut. Rickman and Lieut. Glover
nlso responded to iho toast.
" The Battery" was proposed by
Sergt. Corbott in a very neat speech,
Cnpt. Pole, in responding, said lio
was proud of his battery; tho men it
was composed of were of such a stamp
and standing that any corps would he
proud to have such a fine body of young
fellows enrolled on its list. Sincu taking command of the buttery ho had not
been able to give it all the attention
he would havo wished to do; it was not
from luck of interest he had been absent so often, but from pressure of
professional duties. Ho proposed
bringing up from "C" Battery tin experienced instructor who would be
able to instruct the battery iu every
branch of thoir duly. Such a thing
was necessary lie considered, ami
more particularly so, aa it was his intention of placing the efficiency of tho
battery far above that of any other in
the British Columbia brigade. (Applause.)
Lieut. McNaughten and Lieut.
Mowat followed in very appropriate
speeches and explained to tho men
thnt rosulni- attendance at drill was
the only way hy which the battery
could bo kopt in an efficient state.
A couple of hours were spent very
pleasantly iu general good-fellowship j
numerous capital songs wero sung and
several recitations given by both
nlficors and men. Shortly before midnight tlie festivaties were brought to a
cl so by the singing of "Auld Lang
Syne."

How II Strikes Old Hjt.
Duar Mit, Editor.—Did you ever
hear of anything more outrageous than
the attempt now being made to force
upon the saloon-keeper.-* this iniquitous
Sunday dosing By-Law? These patriotic and self-denying men came to
our city with the benevolent purpose of
supplying a thirsty community with
beer aud whiskey at lOets a glass, and
were willing for the public good, not
only to work day and night throughout
the week, but on Sundays as well. Most
of our citizens, and especially onr young
men, are so employed upon other daya
that it is impossible for them to spend
much of their time iu bar-rooms, and
what arc they to do if the doors are
cloned against them on Sunday? It it to
be feared many of them will spend the
duy with their families, or may even
drift Into tho ohurohes. Now, Mr,
Editor, it is well known that some
Christian ministers, who probjbly were
never dl'ltnlt in their lives, and who
get; their notions from an antiquated
book called the Bible, have an ugly
habit of calling attention to facts which
no gentltninu ought to notice. They
talk of blasted reputations, broken
hearted wives aud mother*?, drunkards'
graven, and all that kind of thing. If
the people all become sober aud industrious what is the council to do for
money? What we need is not less
whiskey, but more. There are soveral
good corners occupied by other lines of
business, and in Bomo parts of Columbia
and Front streets a man may walk a
hundred yards without fleeing a saloon.
Surely no woman of proper spirit would
object to seeing her husband or son
spend his money for whiskey, and thus
increase the revenues so much needed
for public improvements, Of course tbe
liquor men are not resisting the law aud
putting the city to extra expense from
any objection to Sunday closing in tbe
abstract, but as a matter of conscience.
If the local legislature would pass an act
thoy would closo front and back doors
without a murmur. What galls thorn
is to sec our citizens going round the
streets on Sunday with their tongues
out, gasping for beer, when, iu Victoria
or Vancouver, thoy might get gloriously
drunk for four bits, Whiskey forever,
say I, *nnd down with tho temperance
fanatics.   Yours indignantly,
Oj.d Kyk.
