Richmond Council.
Council met in the town hall on
Saturday, March 3rd, the reeve and
all the councillors being present except Councillor Quigley. A communication was read from the provincial secretary, acknowledging receipt of application of this council
to the minister of marine, for fet-
mission to build bridges, and stating
that he had forwarded it to Ottawa
together with a minute of the. ex-
executive supporting the same. Received and filed. Also a communication from Wm. Smith, deputy
minister of marine, stating that the
application had been transferred to
the department of public works.
Received and filed. Also a communication from Woods, Turner A
Gamble, asking for information respecting gazetted roads in the municipality. Received and the clerk
instructed to reply. The com. from
J. 0. Armstrong, laid over from last
meeting, was considered, and the
clerk instructed to reply, stating
that for various reasons, especially
owing to the existing probabilities
of the expenditure of a large amount
of money for public improvements,
the council do not feel inclined to
co-operate in respect to the advertising folders. The clerk presented his
bonds, duly signed by himself and
two sureties, which were placed in
the hands of the reeve. The petition of Hector McDonald and others
asking tho council to submit to the
electors a loan by-law, referred back
by tbe council at its last meeting for
further signature, was presented,
signed by several other ratepayers,
which was received and the by-law
ordered to be passed in accordonce
therewith. The Ricmond Municipal
Loan By-Law, 1888, was then read
the second time, revised and amend
ed in committee of the whole, passed
its third reading, and ordered to be
submitted to a vote of the electors,
to take place at the town hall,
Richmond, on Monday, the 26th
March, instant, Chas. Cornish, returning officer. The Municipal
Officers and Salary By-Law, and the
Assessment By-Law, 1888, wore reconsidered and adopted. On motion
the clerk was instructed to give
notice in the Columbian that the
council intend to apply to the chief
commissioner of lands and works for
tho gazetting a line of roadway cust
from the Gulf of Georgia across the
premises of Messrs. Youdall, Milli
gan. Vermilyea, McMynn, and B, ig-
house, to intersect the road No. 3
leading to the town hall. The clerk
was also instructed to communicate
with the provincial secretary, requesting him to place on the estimates for the incoming year a sum bf
money for the construction of
bridges, pending tho approval of the
loan by-law by the electors. The
council adjourned to meet on the
first Saturday in April.
Mrs. A. Nelson, Brantford, writes: "I
was a sufferer from Chronic Dyspepsia
for eleven years. Always after eating,
an intense burning sensation In the stomach, at times very distressing, caused a
drooping nnd languid feeling, which
would last for soveral hours after eating.
I was recommended lry Mr. Popplewell,
Chemist, of our city, to try Northrop ft
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and I am thankful to say
that I have not been better for years;
that burning sensation and languid feeling have nil gone, anrl food does not lie
heavy ou my stomach. Others of my
family have used it with best results."
Another Item.-M™. J. Thompson, of Elms, Ont, writes that she
suffered from general weakness and
was so reduced that at times she became almost unconscious. Three
bottles of Burdock Blood Bitters completely cured her, and she now recommends B. B, B. to her friends and
neighbors.

Germany, King of
Prussia, Etc.
DIED THIS HOKNINO.
Berlin, Mar. 9.—The Emperor
William died at 8:30 this morning.
*■   V    PASSED PEACEFULLY  AW,AY,     ,
Washinoton, Maroh 9.—The German legation in this city was officially
informed of the Emperor's death early
this moraine; by a telegram from the
iron chancellor. The message states
that-the aged monarch passed peacefully away at half-past'eight this morning.
A HAN   OP 'PEACE.
Berlin, Mar. 9.—The emperor died
holding the hand of his wife, the Empress Augusta. The attendants at the
bedside say the death stupor commenced about 3 o'clock this morning.
At 5 o'clock the emperor was delirious
for a brief interval, and in the delirium reported; he exclaimed: *'I am
a man of peace, but' if I Russia forces
me.te war I.will faithfully side with
my ally, Austria." The burial will be
in the Mausoleum at Oharlottenburg.
THE DEATH CHAHSER,
Berlin, March 9.—The Emperor's
remains lie covered with a wllite cloth
on the bedstead in which he died in
the imperial chamber. The body is
surrounded with candles. The expression of his face is extremely peaceful
and placid. The members of the royal
family left the palace at 10 o'clock.
Divine service will be held in the mortuary chamber to-night.
(. At.the opening of the lower houso
of the Prussian diet to-day, Herr Von
Putttkamer, vice-president of the
Prussian ministerial counoil, announced the emperor's death. Ben Von
Kneller, president of the house, closed
the sitting with tbe words "God protect the royal house and fatherland."
The Stoats Ansieyer publishes-the following proclamation: "It has pleased
God to call his msjesty the emperor
and king, our most gracious msster,
from life after a short illness, snd sfter
a richly blessed reign. The whole nation mourns with tho royal house of
our deeply beloved and venerable
monaroh, whose wisdom bad ruled so
long and glorisusly over its fortunes
in war and in pesos."
The announcement was made to tbe
populace by lowering to half-mast the
standard over the palace. Flags at
half-mast are displayed on all publio
buildings. An immense concourse of
people is gathered at the palace. The
multitude is silent and sorrowful.
BISHSARCK   INFORMS   THE   RE1CBSTAO.
Berlin, March 9.—The bourse is
closed on account of the Emperor's
death. When the rcichstag met to-day,
Bismarck, with deep emotion, informed
the members of the death of the Emperor William. He also announced
that the new king would assume the
title of Frederick III.
MESSAGE OF CONDOLENCE.
London, March 9. -Flags are now
st half mast generally throughout England. On account of the Emperor
William, balls which were to have been
held at Dublin Castle to-night and on
St.Patrick's Day have been postponed.'
Tht Queen has sent a telegram of condolence to Berlin and San Renin.
PROCLAIMED  EHFEROR.
Berlin, Mar. 9.—Frederick William, crown prince, waa this morning
proclaimed by the reichstag,
Frederick III, Emperor of Germany,
King of Prussia, etc.
WHILE BISMAROK LIVES.
London, Mar. 9.—Tlie general impression is that the death of the emperor will have no effect on affairs in
Europe. The situation remains unchanged while Bismarck lives.

uf Germany, Frederick William, passed
a fairly good night. It is now decided

ANOTHER REBELLION TALKED OF. '
Chicago, March 9.—A Winnipeg a
special says: Not deterred by the disasters which overtook Riel's northwest
rebellion in 1885, the half-breeds are
again agitating a similar movement to
redress their grievances, which are said
tc be great. Several big meetings
have been held recently, at which letters have been read from Gabriel Dn-
raont, advising another rising. The
liberal government will probably
give acme aid to the suffering half-
breeds, although their movement is
not much feared.
BOTH   IN FRANCE.
Amiens, March 9.—Both Sullivan
and Mitchell arrived here this morning. The former took a private lodging, and is keeping hie.-If from tha
public gaze. Mitchell suffered fearfully from his trip across the channel and
is in no condition for the encounter
today. The seconds are apparently
making every preparation for the fight,
but the police are watching the movements of all concerned, and the possibility of the light is somewhat dubious.

telegram irom Lord Lansdowne: "It
ia considered by my government that,
if your government approves, the
present time would be convenient for
the discussion of the admission of Newfoundland to the federal union, and
that no difficulty would be likely to
arise in arranging terms. Under these
circumstances could you send a deputation to Ottawa with power to negotiate. In our opinion, the deputation
should represent the opposition aa well
aa the ministerial party, and as the
Canadian session hss begun and may
be short we would suggest the expediency of the deputation sailing on tht

as follows: "I have received yoar

a sensation.

Friday Kvrulng. March II,
From a, desjiatclr which appeared
in our telegraphic columns last night
it seems that the resolutions adopted by the interprovinoial conference
last summer have been endorsed by
the Ontario legislature and forwarded to the imperial government
through the governor-general.
Among these resolutions wns ono
expressing the principle that a modification pf tho fedoral veto power
wn8:nec%ssary to the autonomy and
progress of the provinces. Doubtless other provincial parliaments will
generally endorse these resolutions,
and it is not beyond possibility that
the representations thus made to
Great Britain may result in some
measure bf relief. At the opening
of the British Columbia legislature
last month it was intimated that this
matter would bo brought before the
house this session. We hope our
representatives will pass a resolution
in accordance with the wishes of
their constituents, who are almost
unanimously opposed to the veto
power as at present exercised.
The coal miners of Nanaimo and
Wellington havo been holding a
series of meetings since the recent
explosion for the purpose of devising
measures of protection ngainst similar disaatera. Among other things
they insist that Chinamen shall not
be permitted to work in the mines,
and they have asked that a clause to
this effeot be inserted in the new
act regulating coal mines. Delegates were sent to Victoria for the
purpose of urging this upon the attention 'of the government, but one
of the delegates reported that neither the minister of mines nor Hon.
Mr. Dunsmuir would entertain the
proposal. The ground of objection
was that such legislation is unconstitutional, and that if the matter
cime into the courts, the whole act
would be doclared bad. At a meeting at which this report was presented it wits determined to go on
with the agitation, however, and
endeavor to obtain for it sufficient
influence in the house to carry it
through. A case has just been de
cided in Victoria which seems to
indicate that the contention of the
Hon. Messrs. Dunsmuir and Robson
is correct. The Victoria council refused to grant a pawnbroker's license
to a Chinaman on the ground of his
nationality; but the court held the
objection bad, and ordered the
license to be issued. However desirable it may be to exclude Chinamen from the coal mines, it would
be very questionable lo insert a
prohibitory clause in the act if it is
unconstitutional.
A Creaking Hinge
Is dry ami turns h:irti, uutil oil Is upjiUed,
after which it'moves ens ily. When tlio
joints, or hinges, of tho body aro stiffened
and inflamed hy Rbt-iniiaii-un, they cannot ho moved million.! causing ttih most
excruciating pain;;. Ayer's Sawaparilla,
by its action on tho blood, relieves this
condition, and restores the joints to good
working order.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, in
cases which ballled tho efforts of the
moat experienced physicians. Were it
necessary, I could civo the names of
many individuals who have been cured
by taking this medicine. In my case it
has worked wonders, relieving mo of
Rheumatism,
after being troubled with it for years. In
this, and nil other diseases arising from
impure blood, thore is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayer's SarsapariUa.—K. H.
Lawrence, M. 1)., Baltimore, Md.
Ayer's SarsapariUa cured mo of Gout

would. It has eradicated every trace of
disease from iny system. —IX. H. Short,

I was, duriug mnny months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. The disease
afflicted me grievously, in spite of all tho

It is very much to be regretted
that the bill permitting properly-
qualified barristers from Ontario to
practice in our provincial courts
without residing a year in the country and undergoing examination has
been defeated. It is surely in the
interest of the province that professional men of high standing should
be admitted with as little restraint
as possible to practice in our courts.
We have now among us some very
excellent lawyers, but wo have also
some whose presence in tho court is
neither useful nor ornamental. It
is well known that very few professional men of high standing will
consent to comply with the conditions pf the existing act. For
twelve months they must occupy a
subordinate position, and after that
period they are required to pass an
examination before a board a large
majority of whose members mny be
their inferiors in all the qualities
whioh ore desirable in the profession, llie effect of such a law is to
keep out good lawyers and encourage pettifoggers to crowd the provincial courts. A fourth or lifth
rate lawyer losos very little by residing in the provinco without practice, At best his income is not
large, and he will lie able, perhaps,
to make as much outside of court
work here during his probation as
he made in the country whence lie
oame. But to a man high up in his
profession the loss of twelve months'
practice is a much moro serious matter, to say nothing of the loss of
status during probation. It is particularly unfortunate that the proposed amendment should havo failed
just now. It has been stated in
the houso that the federal government will shortly croate several new
county court judges, and that these
places would in all probability be
filled by members of the provincial
bar. This act, we believe, provides
Ior six judges of this class. Now,
It may fairly be presumed that these
responsible positions will be filled by
persons who stand well up in the
profession. Bnt if a number of our
best lawyers are elevated to the
bench, who are to supply their
places! Outsiders are prohibited,
widths bar of British Columbia
will be left ih a worse condition than
it ever was bofore. We are sorry
to observe that the representative
of thia oity was among the most
zealous of those who opposed the reform, and »e are very sure in thii
he wm not representing the wish of
his constituents.

This game is* &lkyed in ■* number of
Rays, one of which we shall des-ribe.
"box of small, square pieces of curd-
oard with a letter of the alphabet print-
1 on each may be obtained at almost
ny toy-Btore. These canls shonld be
il placed face down in a pile on a table
ii out whieh the players are seated,
nuh player draws out one square of
Km per, una the one who gets a letter
icarest L must play first ll two players
I raw the same letter nearest % i hey must
Iraw again to decide the matter. Tho
iist player having been settled upon,
ids right-hand neighbor follows bim, aud
so on around the circle,
The game is played aa follows: No. 1
draws a letter front the pile, and as words
of one or two letters are not counted, of
(course he cannot make any thing, but
utiist nut his letter down faee up. Sup-
rose this letter to be 0, No. 2 draws N,
nithe cannot make.the word ON, be-
cmse it haa only two letters. No. 3
draws T and immediately takea the 0
uid X to make K01\ No. 4 draws E,
riumphantly tabes No, 3's NOT ond
makes It NOTE. No. S draws S, and
b fore No. 4'a smile has had time to

8,*sor of S.
This description will give a clear Idea
of tiio game, which requires quickness
and ingenuity. The player who first

Old Tims Railroad Business.
No man will dispute the fact, that the
riiilro.ul business of the country has come
down to cold facts. The romance that
invented the old timers has departed,
tin ; so -riety and cnorgy havo taken the
pi ro of drunkenness and dare deviltry.
htVii , in tho old times, conductors on
Ti x u rdus used to turn in "cash fares"
i: :-r gating from 75 cents io ti, when
tii trp was worth in cold cash all the
way from .179 to' $200. A regular nsso-
v u ion operated oa all .the trunk lines,
u 11 at;miction points the brnkeman of
one train would unb'ushingly lead a
crowd of travellers to tho conductor of
nutiilr-r road, and after telling him they
fw ri) "tit might" he would return nnd di-
vi o th.-ir part of the through rate. In
tiiis wai everything went on a mileago
lm'ft, each road kept iti own fares, and
t mre was no expensive pro rata adjust-
iiiMiits at the end of tho month. Spot*
li t /, chucks on the linen, diagrams and
k-.th checks havo killed nearly all
i.roi) ed work on the sleeping car ays*
Ai' ns, hilt (lie most effective remedy was

.Tuny have so many men ready for serv-
w'\r.d that thoy cau change tho runs

nu tors or jwterslearning thyir runwtiil

Your Children
Are constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to tho throat and
lungs. For such -ailments, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral, promptly admlnls-
teredi affords speedy relief and cure.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
-flint which many of our children were
afflicted, we used, during the past winter, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, wa
consider this preparation the most efficacious of all the medicines which havo
cat»e to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hnrati Preceptress, Home for Littlo
Wanderers, Doncaster, Md.
My ohildren have been peculiarly subject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
nnd any effective remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Peotoral. This preparation relieves the
difficulty of breathing and Invariably
cures (he complaint.—David G. Starks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Peotoral
in my family for many years, and
have found it especially valuablo in
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
all irritation, pro vents Inflammation from
extending to the lungs, and quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. B. Wellington, Plainville.Mioh.
I find no medicine so effective, for
Croup and Whooping Cough, as Ayer's
Cherry Peotoral. It saved the life of my
little boy, only six months old, carrying
him safely through the worst case of
Whooping Cough I over saw.—Jane

Tke Emperor's Death.
The false report of tho German Emperor's death arose from the fact that
he swooned yesterday afternoon and
remained unconscious so long that it
was thought he was dead. The news
of his death was immediately telegraphed ull over the continent, England and America, and, owing to tho
pressure of business on the wires between Berlin and London, it was six
hours beforo an official contradiction
of the report was made. All the English papers issued extras containing the
account of the Emperor's death, and
throughout America the afternoon uml
evening papers did the same thing
From Vayooih Creek.
Mr. B. C. Pettengill has returnod
from Cayoosh Creek, Lillooet, wliere
lie has been examining the quartz
ledges lately discovered in thut locality.
Mr. Pcttengil) represents the great
mining millionaires Mackay & Fair,
of San Francisco, and it was on tlieir
behalf he visited Cayoosh Creek, He
reports many excellent claims on tlm
creek and is favorably impressed with
the richness of tha ledges. The Mineral King claim took his fancy and he
offered the owners §50,000 for.it, but
they ask $90,000 and feel  certain  of
fotting that amount before long. Mr.
'ettengill confirms the report that thu
Bonanza comoauy sold their claims to
an English syndicate for $500,000.
Cayoosh Creek promises the biggest
mining boom iu years in this province.
t'oqullluni Water Works.
The engineers in charge of this undertaking have now completed the final
survey of the location line for the
pipes to Coquitlam Lake, and report
that a most favorable line has been
found. A gang of men are now at
work clearing the right of way from
the lake to Pitt River road, and wo
understand the company is fully determined to push the work forward until it has been completed. If this do-
termination is carried out, Westminster will have onu of the best systems
of water works on the Pacific coast.
It is estimated that the pressure will
be sutliciont to throw water 100 feet
higher than the highest point in the
city. In view of tho completion of
these works it is to bo hoped the council will consider the question of city
drainage and sewerago which is so
urgently needed.
An Incident by Ihe Way.
The ladies who are collecting for the
Bible Society somotimes meet with
strange receptions, and on other occasions the object of thoir mission docs
not seem to be (dearly understood.
The day before yesterday two of these
indefatigable workers entered certain
offices iu this city, and, meeting with
Buccess in tho tir&t room, entered a
second taking the occupants unawares.
In a bashful yol persuasive manner they
solicited a subscription fur tho good
work. Ono of the clerks, a timid
youug man, askctl whether the fee was
one dollar nr fifty cents. This the
ladies declared to be optional on tho
part of tho giver, whereupon tho un-
Buspecting scribe, feeling in his pocket,
amid great confus-non, a-ked when und
where tho raffle would take place.
This was a little tea much for the
ladies who withdrew covered with
glory and blushes.
Dr. Kent's tertm e.
As soon as Dr. Kent hus recovered
his health he will deliver another lecture under the auspices of the V. M.
C. A. Tho "subject of the lecture is
the "Resurrection Body," and in it
we understand the doctor proposes to
deal with some very important question*, auch as these: The nature of
man; his pre existent immaterial type;
his necessary relations; bis substantial
possibilities; what is it to die! does
death end all ? what h thu moaning
of the term dead ? do tho dead immediately pass into & Btate of unconscious-
nofls ? shall tho preaent material body
rise again ? ahull the deud lire again ?
what ia the probable nature of the resurrection body, as indicated by
science and revelation .' shall our spiritual associations with the loved ones
be resumed? This k-ctuie ought to
throw much light upon a momentous
subject which is how very imperfectly
understood by the people generally.

Provincial legislature.
Severnl bills wero advanced a stage
yesterday. Mr. Heaven brought up a
resolution to the effect thut the
changes made in the cabinet by whicli
Hon. Mr. Robson assumed the position
of premier, were unconstitutional, and
that the lieutenant-governor should
be advised of the fact. He contended
that the premier, being the medium of
communication between tho crown and
the people, and being practically the
government, could nut be appointed
without an order ill-council, and if he
resigned there was no government.
He also maintained that the acting at-
tornoy-geiH'i'.il, Hun. Mr. Davie, held
his position illegally, and that any
member might apply fur a writ fur a
new election tu fill his seat Mr,
Grant spoke to tho same effect. Hon.
Mr, Robson replied thut the arrangement was merely temporary, arising
from the illness of tho premier, nna
that ft had been made with tin full
knowledge and consent of the lieutenant-governor. Mr. Beaven's resolution was lost on a division. An attempt wss made to revive the legtl
professions amendment bill, but did
not succeed. The ballot amendment
bill introduced by Mr. Higgins was
killed in committee.

Tke Kootenay Carnal.
Tenders are being called for the construction uf a navigable canal and lock
between the Upper Kootenay river
and the Columbia Lake (the source of
Columbia river), and its purpose is to
connect tho navigable waters of theso
two rivers, a work which will greatly
enhance the facilities lor transportation, into tlio Upper Kootenay valloy,
and hence assist in the development
of its rich mineral resources, The
canal and luck will be the first of their
kind iu the province and the cu3t of
construction is estimated ut $50,000.
It is to be carried out by the Kootenay
Valleys Co., of London, England, who
last fall erect- d a Bteam sawmill on tho
spot and since have beon busy cu-tit-g
tlie timbers and lumber required for
this important undertaking. Thu canal
will give steamer communication for a
stretch of 200 miles, and it cannot full

possibility to get machinery to the

boom. The Dominion government are
going to spend $10,000 on improving
the channel of the Columbia, the surveys for which work the Messrs. Mc-
Vittie are in the act of completing.
A Passage at Arms.
During the discussion of the motion
of censure un the Colonist brought forward by Mr, Humphreys last Wednesday, some very sharp firing took place
in the house, tt will be remembered
that Mr. Humphreys, after getting in
hia work on tho Colonist undor cover
of a motion, announced that he would
withdraw the motion. The ■Tipies
then reports as follows:
Hon. Mr. Robson—That is ono of
tho most cowardly things I over saw
done.
Hon. Mr. Humphreys—What's that?
Mr. Speaker, what did ho say?
Hun. Mr. Robson—I said it was one
of the moBt cowardly things I ever saw
done.
Hon. Mr. Humphreys—Is that proper language Mr. Speaker?
Mr. Speaker—It is certainly very
improper language, Hou. members
will plouso preservo order.
Hon. Mr. Humphreys—(reauming
his seat)—He wouldn't Bay that outside of this House.
Hon. Mr. Vernon—I would.
Hon. Mr. Humphreys—Well, come
outside and say it. I will bring down
a Siwash from Kamloops who will
thrash you.
Hou. Mr. Vernon—(pale with excitement)—jumped to his feet shouting "Mr. Speaker."
Mr. Speaker—Order, order. This
shall go no further.
