Tho following is the full text of Sir
Cleurgu Stephen', telegram to the premier of Manitoba. It is dated Mont-,
real, 19th May: "lam informed that
negotiations are in progress, if not
already completed, between your government una others, and the Northern
Vacitic railway company, with a view
of giving that company independent
ctmiicctiuu with Winnipeg. 1 cannot
but regard this us an aot of undeserved hostility towards the Canadian
Pacific railway, which in the end will
do nothing but hurt to Manitoba and
the North-West and, further, 1 consider it a breach of faith toward the holders of 8134,000,000 private capital invested in Canadian Pacific Railway
way securities. If the mischievous
agitation in favur of diverting the business -of the North-west into American
channels is continued, and the Oans-
Pacific Railway Company ia to be
treated as a public enemy by the
people of Winnipeg, the company will
at once take  steps  to establish  their
firincipal western shops at Fort Wil-
iam, which, from an operating point
of view, has many advantages, leaving
nothing at Winnipeg but the ordinary
division shops. Pray do not be mistaken. This is no idle threat, it ia a
fixed purpose, taken after full consideration."
But it does not seem clear how this
threat could be carried out, in view of
the following clause, whioh was inserted in the agreement between the
C. P. K. Oo. and the" city of Winnipeg at the time of giving the 9200,000
bonus: "And whereas, it was in and
by the said by-law further stipulated
that the said Canadian Pacific Railway
company should immediately after the
ratification of said by-law, make, execute and deliver to the mayor and
council of the city of Winnipeg,a bond
and covenant under their corporate
seal, that the said company would
with all convenient and reasonable
despatch establish and build within
the limits of the city of Winnipeg
their principal workshops for the main
line of tbe Canadian Pacifio railway
within the province of Manitoba and
the branches thereof radiating from
Winnipeg, within the limits of the
said province, and forever continue
the same within the said city of Winnipeg; and that by such bond and
covenant tho company should bind
themselves as soon na they conveniently could to procure direct within
the oity of Winnipeg large nnd commodious stock or cattle yards suitable
and appropriate for. the central business of their main line of railway, and
several branches, thereof."
It ia tbe genera] opinion- that. Sir
George, Stephen went a step too far in
his despatch. It does not seem-lively
that Iho C. P. 11. will care to withdraw from Winnipeg even il it could,
Tbe city is too important and too influential to be treated rashly, and the
people have too much spirit to bs
forced into submission by such a message. It has been also hinted that the
C. P. K. may abandon that part of ita
road north of Lake Superior ss soon aa
it completes the Sault Ste. Marie line,
and thus save the operation of a long
atreteh of unprofitable line. There
may be something in that. The road
from Sudbury to Fort William ia very
expensive to operate, and the relume
must be extremely small.
Points on Poultry.
Tbe Argument ol Pistols.
Canada lias gained hew distinction
by her treatment of O'Brien. . There
wu no particular reason why tfi'e Irish
agitator should hare gone to Canada.
It was a sort of bear and bull baiting
business. Lord Lansdowno, the Governor General, owns large estates in
Ireland, He is probably neither better
nor worse than the average absentee
landlord of Ireland. But landlordism
hu been the curse of that country.
O'Brien wuable to make many telling
points against the Governor-General
while uacciating his name with some
of the worst abuses of Ireland.
The Tory influence is strong iu
Canada. There is also an intense provincialism there. It takes its one in
politics largely from th. Administration. O'Brien, in his speeches, did to
some extent attack the Administration
of Canada in an incidental way, by attacking Lord Lansdowne." If he were
inst the man represented by O'Biien,
he could not be otherwise than repeg-
nant to Liberals in Cant da, as well as
in England and Ireland. In short,
O'Brien went to Canada to toll the.
Canadians his opinion of what nort ef a -
man they had got for Governor-General. And this he did by showing
what Lansdowne was as an Irish land-
lord, O'Brien is a fearless man, the
editor of a newspaper, and a memler-
eleot to Parliament. He it terribly in
earnest; all reformers are. yVnen a -
man attacks an old abuse he will accomplish nothing if he proceeds in a
half-and-half way. No doubt there
was a degree of exaggeration in
O'Brien's talk. How could it be otherwise? If he believed in himself and
his cause, believed that the time had
come for radical reforms in Irelaud,
and for the wiping out of such abuses
u he had charged Lord Lsnsdo. e
with tolerating and perpetuating, why
should he not fay so!
One might think that in America,
and even in the Dominion of Canada,
free speech within reasonable limits
would be tolerated. But then it hu
no't always been tolerated even in ths
United States. The old-fashioned
Abolitionists were frequently mobbed.
Loveioy, the apostle of Freedom, was
murdered in Illinois, where, a few
years later, Abraham Lincoln emerged
from obscurity, and dually, u President of the United States, nt his
hand to an instrument, setting free
some four millions of slaves, But hs
wu murdered alto. Martyrdom is an
incident of every age, O'Brien hu
survived a dozen pistol shuts in Canada; he lives in defiance of rocks and
bludgeons. " Tbe blood of the martyrs ia the seed of the church." It is
also the seed of all greet reformations.
O'Brien stay not get out ef Canada '
alive. Bnt ts will tell his story, ud
if his life is taken it will hasten the
progress of ths reform he advocates.
The spirit of Toryism in Canada ia
made specially unlovely by a gnat
many provincial excrescences. The
outcome of all this violence will be sn
increasing amouut of sympathy, and
an increasing number of supporters fer
the cause that O'Brien advocates. It
is a trite saying that reforms never go
backward.— Son Franciico Bulletin.
The season for setting hens is com-
infr. The question ns to the shape of
eggs for setting may well be considered. Does it pay to pick out eggs of
good shape, to avoid pointed eggs and
those with the "bigness" all ut one
end ? Breeders differ in their opinions
as to this point. But the Sural Nem
YorJ.-er hen man believes a hen in perfect health always lays a well-shaped
egg; that a pointed or poorly shaped
egg is a sign that the hen is too fat or
otherwise out of condition. One experimenter says that he sprinkles piaster frequently under the roosts, and
scrapes up the manure mice n week,
diluting it with about an equal bulk of
dry muck.
Laying hens must bo closely looked
after this season of the year if many
eggs aro ox pec ted. While corn may
be the principal food, they should also
have wheat, barley, oats, shorts, boiled
potatoes and apples; also cabbage and
chopped hay, or rowan moistened with
warm wnter. Keep ground oyster-
shells and bone constantly by them,
also gravel and pure water.
Fish has boon highly recommended
as a wholesome and nutritious diet for
fowls and an excellent substitute whon
other meat cannot bo obtained. Where
the poultry man is situated near u fish*
market • he can obtain lurge quantities
of refuse and waste material of ..the
fish which cannot be sold, and if this
is fed to the fowls it will furnish them
with a cheap and nutritious food, and,
if anything, better thnn any other
meat diet which can bo obtained.
It is a .mistake to suppose that because ducks are fond of water they will
do well if kept iu dnmp quarters.
They must hove a dry plnco in which
to sleep, or they will soon show signs
of disease, and in the end die. Ducks
that are well kept through the winter,
having a warm place nt nights, will
begin to lay a month earlier than those
which sleep on the warm Bide of a
barnyard fence.
Turkeys are capable of rapid digestion, and are always apparently hungry. If allowed to forage they can bo
kept at a very small exports?, but
when kept in confinement they consume more than hens. When young
and growing, they produce a carcass
equivalent to the food consumed.

Another Manitoba Rebellion.
Judging  from   the tone of the
Winnipeg press and people, it would
bo no exaggeration to say that Manitoba is on the verge of another rebellion.   For some time it has been
manifest that the storm of public
opinion   in   that  province   would
surely smash disallowance and force
the federal government into concessions which it has long declined to
make.     The  people of Manitoba
have come to believe that their pro
vinco has been greatly retarded by
the operations of the 0. P. R. monopoly clause and the policy of disallowance in which the Dominion
government has persisted.    The delegation  which recently  wont to
Ottawa  from   Winnipeg  declared
that the discrimination of the 0. P.
B. was injuring not only tho agricultural but the commercial interests of the country.   While wheot
was being carried from St. Paul to
New York at 32k. per hundred by
American roads, the rate from Winnipeg to Montreal over the 0. P.
R.  was 50c per 100, the distance
being the same.   It was shown also
that the 0. P. R. had carried wheat
from Dakota to Port Arthur for ISc
per 100, while its rate from Winnipeg to the same point (a shorter distance) was 28c.    These facts, and
many others, were brought out at a
meeting held at Winnipeg on the
26th inst.     The meeting, by the
way, is described as one of the most
influential ever held in Manitoba,
There  were 1,500 people present,
and among them a large represen
tation of members of parliament,
mayors, reeves, and delegates from
the various towns and municipalities throughout the province.   The
first resolution put before the meeting, after  reciting  the grievances
which had arisen out of the monopoly policy, declared: "That in the
unanimous opinion of this meeting,
representing, us it does, the entire
province of Manitoba, the interests
of every portion of this province
demand competition in railways, for
the cheapening of the necessaries of
life to the settler, the lowering of
freight rates for the carrying of our
wheat and other products to the
seaboard, and above all tho removal
of the  ban  of monopoly, which
frightens capital  and immigration
from our land, while the interests of
the eastern provinces demand it for
the facilitating and fostering of their
trade with the Northwest, and for
the development of a larger market
here for their manufactures."    This
resolution was carried without opposition.     The second resolution re-
ferred to the telegram recently sent
to the premier of Manitoba by Sir
George Stephen, president of  the
C. P. R. company, in which it was
intimated that "if the mischievous
agitation" for connection with the
American railways is continued, the
0. P. R. "will at once take steps to
establish its principal shops at Fort
William, leaving nothing at Winnipeg but the ordinary division shops."
"This is not an idle threat," adds
Sir George, "but is a fixed purpose,
taken after full consideration." The
resolution characterised this telegram as "a frank and natural product and illustration of the spirit
of monopoly whereby free people
are sought to be kept in a condition
of serfdom to tyrannical and grasping masters."    It then refers to tho
fact that the city of Winnipeg gave
the company a bonus of 1200,000,
exemption from taxation, and a free
site, in consideration of the location
there of  the company's principal
workshops, and maintenance of them
there forever.     The resolution insisted upon the enforcement of the
bond against the company to this
(fleet   In his speech the mover of
this resolution characterised the despatch as audacious and impertinent,
and declared that if Mr. VanHorne
undertook to sidetrack Winnipeg
hs would have on his hands the biggest kind of a contract   Several
other resolutions were passed amid
the   wildest enthusiasm, breathing
the spirit of uncompromising resistance to the enforcement of ths disallowance policy, and a determined
resolution  to go on with tho proposed railway in spite of the monopoly clause.   During the discussion
of these questions some of the inwardness of ths last Manitoba else
tion was incidentally brought to the
surface.    It seems that the electors
were very unanimous in their determination to put an end to the polioy
of disallowance, and were prepared
to sacrifice their political party ties,
if necessary, in the accomplishment
of their desire,    But the Tory candidates having laid the situation
before Sir John, that accomplished
strategist led them to believe that
the surest way to obtain the end
■ought would be to elect supporters
of tho government, and they need
not concern themselves about disallowance.    Sir John sent two telegrams to Mr. Mr, Scrath, one of tho
Winnipeg Conservative candidates,
on this subject, the latter of which
was of suoh a nature as to satisfy
the party that there would be no
more disallowanoe if government
supporters were elected.   The meeting severely  censured Sir John's
oondoet in turning round as soon as
the elections were over and declaring that the government's railway
policy oooW not be changed!   Itis
SnfideotJy bettered the people of j
Manitoba will go on with their railway in spite of the Dominion government, and that they will not be
troubled more with disallowance.
They appear to be very determined,
and in a state of mind such as it
might be dangerous to triflo with.

DIRECTORS' ANNUAL REPORT.
Gentlemen—In presenting our report
for fiscal year ending 31st March, 1887,
we beg to state that it will be an utter
impossibility to run the hospital free of
debt on the grant juat voted by the government for the ensuing financial year.
The surgeon has been attentive in his
duties ana reports a large increase in tho
number of patients admitted during the
year, shewing also that we have received
patients from all parti of the province.
There are a number of incurables in
this hospital, some of whom were brought
from Victoria hospital years ago. The
sum of $1,000 a year has been voted for a
convalescent home in Victoria, the last
few years. The Board thiols, therefore,
that some of these incurables should be
Bhipped back to Victoria.
A great number of improvements have
been made during the year, walls and
floors repaired, a wash-house built, the
two cesspools thoroughly cleaned; tho
building being old, requires constant repairs, which entails considerable expend-
mure.
The hospital has been tilled to its
utmost capacity during the whole year.
The Board desire to thank subscribers
for generous substriptions, lists of which
are annexed, and without which it would
have been found impossible to havo kept
the institution free of debt; also the con-
gregations of Holy Trinity Church, St.
Andrew's (Presbyterian), Methodist and
Baptist Churches for hospital Sunday
collections, and the following ladies nnd
gentlemen for old clothes, linen, books,
papers etc.:—Mesdames C. T. Woods, C.

The Burgeon's report is appended hem-
to, and gives full details of tlio work
accomplished for the year.
The average cost per day for each resident patient in the hospital, which includes the disbursements on out-door
patients, Is 67 cents.

residences to show the people of Bjltlsli
Columbia that they all ought to hike an
interest In helping on this Institution,
which is increasing In usefulness every
year, as may be seen hy comparing tho
number of indoor patients nf the previous
year —seventy-five (75)-wlth this year-
one hundred nnd three (lo:i».
We still requite a lot of draining to be
donenbontnnd from the building. The
floors and walls hnve been improved nnd
the new wash-room is a great addition to
the comfort of the place,
I have great pleasure in thanking a
number of friends of the Hospital for present, of clothes, old linen, pictures, books
and papers. Again I hnve to thank tho
steward. Hr. Charles rugby, for his constant attention lo the cleanliness or tho
building and his kindness nnd attention
to the wants of the sick and his readiness
Incarryingoutull my directions, Before
closing this reportl must offer my sincere
thanks to the medical gentlemen who art
kindly offered their assistance to myself
whenever required during the past year.
I am Yours Faithfully,

TREASURER'S REPORT.
In presenting the accounts for Iho past.
year, tbe Treasurer bees lo call attention ,
to the fact thnt tho outlay has been rigidly
scrutinised, in which he has boon ably
assisted by the Steward, Mr. Dlgby. There
seems little prospect of any reduction of
expenditure. You will notice that the
subscriptions hnve been liberal and hnve
been a great assistance In keeping the
Institution free or debt. It Is to be regretted that th. Government havo reduced
the grant to tho Hospital from MJKO to ,3,-

OLD SOUTHERNISMS,'
Quaint 8»yin»a Js Seutb, Carotins, i
Some years ago Richard Grant White
wrote a delightfully interesting took
■ on Americanisms.   He might well have
divided the subject into two parts—
Yankeeismsttnd Houthernisms.
Absolute correctness in pronunciation or in the formation of sentences is
a moat difficult accomplishment, and
few there be, either North or Booth,
who hav. reached such a degree of
perfection that no eiceptions can be
taken by "carping critics" to their ut-
Unset*.
In th. matter of pronunciation the
ttimes era ehanging.ond one can scarcely
keep psc. with tbe innovations being
introduced by th. leading orthoepists.
The purpose of this paper is, however, to present, in a succinct way, a
few ol the qnainlneises of pronunciation and construction held to by the
6outb.ni people est class,
Among these tbe first that comes to
mind ia the custom of omitting the
last two letters of such words as "more,"
."•tore,"  "tour/' —which  are pro-
fuounced "mo," "»to,"«nd "lb."
J   "What o'clock is it I" you ask the
■Carolinian, and ten to one he tells you
■it is "half-pas' tV," if tint happens to
|be the hour.
Another common Southernism is tbe
[use of "like as if," or "like" for the
orda"a»U."
" She looked like she knew me," is a
[common expression, or, "she looked
'ike aa if she'd die."  This is f err com-
non in Washington, and in all the
■States South of Mason and Dixon's
Tine.
,  The word " funny" Is frequently used
instead of strange, sad sometimes with
(tartimg effect.
A young Southern girl was visiting
i. once, and . caller wu telling of the
■lesthof her mother through swallowing s fishbone. ,.
" Ohl wasn't it fanny?" exclaimed
rar visitor, at the olose ot the narra-
,ire.
I think yon mean strange," said
he caller, as soon as she recovered
Horn the astonishment Onr girl
i tend hat never used tho word "fanny"
mce,
II you happen to hcoranybodyssy "rye
heer" you may know it is intended to
nesn "right.here."  For instance:
A South Carolinian will say, " Where
vasho at last night?" and hiafellow-
ntizeu will say, "He staid rye cheer
frith oe."
Djesr—pronounced in one syllable—
■> not t Russian word, as might be sop-
Bosed; it means "Doyou hear?"end
usually tddrested to servants in this
orm:  "Ton Jim I Bring in that wood,
ljear?"
"To get to go" is essentially aGeor-
lit expression,   They say:
n^T)o don't faU to come to-night,"
ad tbe reply is: "I've tried to get to
to three week, now, so I reckon III be
lere t'nigbt."
The expression "Dodon't" it heard
l Georgia and South Carolina, bnt
^relr elsewhere.
Una ol Ihe most Isughsble things you
vtr beard is the peouliu pronunobv
'on of the word "about." Itiaimpos-
tie to express tbe South Carolinian"
enunciation phonetically. It sounds
la abaout—pronounced very quickly
'three syllables.

YOUNG MOZART.
Precocity of ths OHM MFssss
Coraposer.
At five years of age Mozart began
composing without the slightest guide.
He formed tbe pieces on the piano,
played them to his father, who then
wrote them down.
It is strange that he was not a child
when seated at the piano. Nobody
dared address a joke to him or talk
aloud. In a letter of bis father', it is
stated that some of his friends, who
asw the child so very serious, predicted
that he would not live long,
Although he willingly studied everything his fsther told him to work it,
nraiio filled hit soul from early childhood to such nn extent thtt when his
toys hid to be taken from one room to
mother he insisted on a much being
long, to tbe strsins ol which he walked
la time and iu procession with ths person who saiuted him,
From a letter from Court Trumpeter
Andreas Scbactner to Mozart's lister, I
tak. th. following details. I may first
be allowed to say thtt t trumpeter then
wit not whit he may be now, tod that
this Mi. Scbactner was a man not only
ol musical but literary culture, who
often lent .helping hand with Montis'
libretti.   Be writes:
" Once I came horns from church
with roar father ind wt found Wolfed
fully engaged with bis pen." (Wolfed
—Ihe diminutive of Wolfgang-meant
in German, just th. asm. is in English,
t small wolf.) " Tb. child hid a piper
before him and would not let ut tea
what he wrote because it was not ready.
It was full of ink spots, becsuse he
pushed his quill every time to the bottom of the inkstand. His father at
last took it sway from him and found.
It was the manuscript ol • concerto for
the piano, and on his remark that it was
toe difficult, the little boy jumped up
and said, ' It is a concerto. Let those
who want to play it study bard,'and
he sat down to the, Instrument and
played it."
Evidence of bis miraculous oipieitiet
was given in his seventh year, A trio
wee played, and he begged to be allowed
to play the seoond fiddle. Hit father,
knowing that tbe boy bad novel hid
regular instruction, would not bur of
it. The boy insisted. So th. father
ordered bim out of tbe room.
Be then resorted to the infallible
means with which children end woman
govern their so called masters, tbe men;
e began to cry. Of course one of the
friends present begged tbit the child
might be allowed to nave hu will, and,
to tbo uttor amazement of all present,
be sat down and played without • fault,
first tho second, then the Brit fiddle,
until itwu the father'! turn to shed
tears of surprise and admiration.

IBB WASHERWOMAN'S FBIDTV,
In a very humble cot,
In a rather quiet spot,
In the suds and in th* soap.
Worked a woman full of hope:
Working, singing, all alone,
In a sort ot undertone,
" Willi a Saviour tor a friend,
ho will keep me to the end.'.'
Sometimes happening along,
I had heard the semieatg,
And I often used to smile,
Moro In sympathy ton gull*.
Butlnoversaidaword
In regard to what I heard,
As ehe sang about her friend
Who would keephertothsaod.
Not in sorrow nor In glee
Working all day long was the,
Aa her children three or four,
Flayed around her on th* floor:
Bnt in monotones the song
She wu humming all day long,
" With a Saviour for a Mend.
Be will keep me to the and."
'lW a song I do not sit,
for I scarce believe at
Of the stories that are toM
Ot the miracles of old;
But I know that hor belief
Is the anodyne ot grief,
And will always be a friend
That will keep her to tha «d.
Just a trifle lonesome she.
Just as poor ee poor could be,
But her spirit, always rota,
Like the bubblu In the clothes,
And though widowed and alone,
Cheered her with the monotone,
Of a Saviour and a friend
Who will keep her to the end.
:      I have seen her rub end scrub
On ths washboard In the tub,
While the biby. copped in suds,
Boiled end tumbled lo the duds,
Or was paddling In the pools
With old eclsson Muck In spools,
She eUll humming of her friend
Who would keep her to tbe end,
Bumin hopes ud humu creeds
Have their root In humu needs,
And I would not wish to .trip
From that washerwoman's lip
Any song that ehe can elng,
Any hope that songs can bring;
For the woman hu a friend
Who will keep her to th. and.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(I.I1CITSD.)
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
of New Westminster, to be known as the
British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
tlie British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Viotoria and Vancouver. Tlio object of
tho now company is to continue the publication of the British Columbian news*
paper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest It will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland, There will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of .the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbian will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and wilt devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered In the public interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T, R,
Pearson, who will continue to carry It on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for public patronage on the ground that it Is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Columbian be judged on Its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy Is
enconsistt with its professions. In consequence of this business change all accounts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

This. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Security offered to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing bust-
ness In Canada,
It has no schemes of insurance, but the
veil-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misled an to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, its cash statement showing every item of income and how expen-
Its position 18 ascertained annually from
a detailed valuation in which every item
of nubility is Included.
Itn progress has been unexampled In
the history of Insurance in Canada.
IU policies are indisputable after three
years, and non-forfeltable after two years'
existence.
Its profit* are distributed upon an equitable oaBls, 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
tbe uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Adjourned county court opens at 11

number of petty cases to come up, but
none of any public interest.
Subscriptions are being taken for
the celebration of the queen's jubilee
in this city, and we are informed that
the response has been very liberal.
Inconsequence of the absence of
the fire engine last night the mayor
employed four extra watchmen who
paraded the streets during the night.
The Western Union wires have been
down since Sunday, and there is no
prospect of their going up. We are,
consequently, without telegrams today.
We are requested to say that the

evening.

will be dispensed, and in the evening
then will be a converaasione in the

Soma people think the mayor ought
to have refused to lot the steam fire
engine leave the city last night, because
a Ira might occur hare any time, and
wa should be left without adequate
protection. It would esem rather
rough to deny uslstanoe to a neighboring city in distress under the cir-
cumstanoe., but the engine certainly
ought to hav. bean returned promptly.

found the professional card of Mr. E.
A. Joniis, who resigns his position of
registrar of tho supromo court to outer

is well-known in this oity, and his reputation is such as to ensure for him,
we believe, the fullest public confidence.
Some Sales.—At tlio auction snlo of
the Kwong Lee estate, hold in Victoria yesterday, lot 1 on Agnes street,
this city, was sold to Mr. H. Elliott

(550 respectively; lot 4, block 17,
Clarkson St., was purchased by Mr.
Bole for (1,650. The sale was conducted by Mr. Geo. Byrnes, auctioneer.
Customs Seizure.—We havo it on
what we deem tho most reliable authority that the customs collector in
this oity some weeks ago made an important seizure, a business coneern being suspected of undervaluation in
passing entries. The matter was. arranged funnily ou payment of double
duties (amounting to (9,000 or (10,-
000) and a fine of (10,000. The matter wu kept quiet by all concerned,
but it is now current talk at Westminster.—Fie. Times.
Another Warkino. — Vancouver
had another very narrow escape last
night from utter destruction by fire.
The whole ■ oity was surrounded by
flames, and enveloped in dark clouds
of smoke whioh stifled and bewildered
the people. There was a heavy wind
blowing, and if once the fire had taken
hold of the city, nothing could have
saved it. While the people of Vancouver arc disputing over the two
water-works schemes, and nothing
seems settled, it may bo that a definite
conclusion will not be reached until
after the present oity has been wiped
out of existence. It is a dangerous
thing to trifle with fire, and a steam-
engine would be utterly worthless in
the event of a conflagration such as
visited Vancouver last June.
Nor Biobt.—Loud and bitter complaints are heard ou every sido against
the C. P. B. in failing to provide
means of transportation for the fire
company and its apparatus early this
morning. Mr. S. H. Webb informs
us that after the fires had been
quenched lost night he informed Mayor
McLean and Aid. Oppenheimer that
many of the firemen were employed
in various capacities and consequently
would be obliged to return early this
morning. Mayor McLean informed
him that a special return train would
leave at 5 o'clock. It did not, however,
and many of the volunteers, who had so
heartily responded to the appeal for
help, were obliged to walk here or hire
special conveyance in order to be nt
their usual daily routine punctually.
A Valuable Find.—Mr. John McDonald, of the Bow Park farm, informs us that he is about to erect a
kiln at once at the lime quarry lately
discovered on his property. The location is a few miles above Harrison
Biver, close to the bank of the Fraser,
and near the railway track. The limestone has been pronounced first-class
by practical men, and in quantity it is
inexhaustible. Mr. Jas. Turnbull, of
this city, hu taken an interest in the
quarry, and will superintend tho erection of the kiln A largo quantity of
brick has gone up, and operations will
begin at once. The discovery is a
most valuable one. Heretofore nearly
all the lime used on the mainland has
come from San Juan, as there was no
extent of limestone known to exist in
the country, Mr. McDonald discovered the stone accidentally, but is well
satisfied he hu struck a good thing.

THE BOYS CALLED OUT.
To Assist Vancouver in Fighting tbe Clearance Fires.
They Go Quickly to tbe Rescue.
INCIDENTS OF THE TRIP.
At nine o'clock last evening won!
was received in tho city that the clearance fires, which during the day had
been burning around Vancouver, had
suddenly become fanned by the wind,
aud threatened to destroy the city.
1 in mediately tho council, which was
tlion in session, [Kissed a resolution
authorizing tho tiroinou to go to Vancouver and render assistance. The
ongino and fifteen hundred feet of
hose were taken down to tho depot
and put aboard u special train, which
loft at 10 O'clock for Vancouver.
Nearly two hundred of Westminster's
nialo population wore aboard. Through
a lack of proper provision, the train
was obligod to bo side-tracked two or
three times during tho journey, and
did not arrive at Vancouver until two
o'clock this morning. Happily before
arriving there tho Vancouver brigade
had succeeded in getting the fires under
control, Our firemen, however, hauled
off their ongino and turned on the
streams on some conflagrations on
Hastings st. After putting out the
tiros all hands adjourned to the Dougall
House, where they were entertained
at lunch by the popular proprietor.
Mayor McLean, who was present,
on belialf of the citizens of Vancouver,
thanked the Westminster firemen for
having so willingly responded to tho
call of distress. Chief engineer, Mr.
S. H. Webb, of tho Westminster
firemen, assured Vancouver that she
would always find Westminster a good
Samaritan to her sistor on the inlet,
when in trouble. Ghiof Carlyle, of
tho Vancouver brigade, then thanked
our boys. He hoped the two companies of tho mainland cities would
often meet, but not under such circumstances as tho present. Aftor luncheon
the boys all separated, soma to seek a
bed, some to take in the city sights,
and soino left for Westminster at that
early hour. The balance of the party
and the engine arrived in the city at
12:30 o'clock to-day, feeling none the
worse for their midnight excursion,
except experiencing a slight want of
sleep.
lt is fortunate that tho fire which
raged all round Vancouver did not
take hold of the city, or no human aid
would havo saved the place. For
some time the scene was wildly exciting. Flames shot their lurid tongues
up on all Bides, while' the dense volumes of smoke filled the streets and
houses, aud people were doubting
whether to stay by their property or
run for tiioir lives. Tho O. P. R. cars
and moveable goods were sent out of
the city for safety, and some people
packed up their valuables ready for an
emergency.,.. It was a narrow escape.
a sum for each street would be suffi
dent.
Mayor Diokinaon proposed that the
by-law bo submitted to a legal gentle
roan for advice.
At this juncture the fire brigade
were called out to en to Vancouver,
and the council adjourned until tonight, when the balance of the meeting will be held.
C. B. Hall, Grayvillc, 111., says: "I
have sold at retail, 156 bottles of Dr.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil, guaranteeing every
bottle, I must uy I never sold a medicine in my life that gave such universal
satisfaction. Ia my own case, with a
badly ulcerated throat, after a physician
penciling It for several days to no effect,
the Eclectric Oil cured it thoroughly in
twenty-four hours, and in threatened
croup in my children this winter, it never failed to relieve almost immediately."
S. Chad wick, of Arcadia, Wayne Co*,
writes: "I have had severe attacks of
Asthma for several years. I commenced
taking Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil. The
first dose relieved me in one hour, I
continued taking it iu teaspoonful doses
for a few days, and have not had an attack of it since, now nearly one year."
City council.
Tho council met Monday night in the
council chamber. Present, his wor
fihip Mayor Dickinson, in the
chair, and a full board of councillors.
COMMUNICATIONS.
The following communications were
read: From Jos. McKay, asking the
grade of Agnes st; from W. R. Lewis,
asking permission to sink a water tank
on Queen's avenue;from J. B. Blanch-
ard, begging that the council lay
crossings in front of the new Catholic
hospital; from B. Douglas, asking permission to place lumber on street for
building purposes; leave eranted;
from J. A. Webster, asking a permit
to put building material on Columbia
and Front Bts.; leave granted; from
H. B. Beckett & Co,, asking permission to place material on Columbia st.
for the erection of Mr. W, A. Duncan's new hotel; leave granted,
BILLS AND ACCOUNTS.
The following bills and accounts
were read: From It. C. GazttU, advertising, $0.25, ordered paid; from
Guardian, 933, referred to finance
committee; from Woods, Turner &
Gamble, surveying, $30, referred to
finance committee; from II. C. P.
Mills, for placing sawdust on streets,
$600, referred to finance committee
for payment.
OlOHINU THE SALOONS,
Tho clerk read a petition signed by
Edith Major and others of the W. 0.
T. U., praying that the saloons and
wholesale liquor houses be closed from
10 o'clock Saturday night till 6 o'clock
Sunday morning, and every night
during the week with similar time limitation.
Rev. 0. Watson then read a similar
Ketition, signed by fiver 600 citizens,
tr. Watson said that open saloons on
the Sabbath day were calculated to
give strangers a bad impreasion of the
community and to prove a serious obstacle to immigration.
BY-LAWS.
The public morals by-law was reconsidered and passed.
The council went into committer on
the real estate by-law, Coun. Bonsnn
in the chair.
Clause 3, which provides for the collection of a rental tax, caused some
discussion.
Cmm. Jaques thought it was illegal
and should be struck out. Coun,
Duncan shared his opinion.
Coun. Elliot objected to striking it
out. Heretofore this tax had been
collected, and he knew no reason why
Iho practice should be abandoned. It
was finally resolved that the matter be
referred to the city barrister,
The council then went into committee on tho loan by-law, Ooun, Jaques
iu the chair,
Coun. Khiles wanted a eet appro*
priation for each ward.
Coun. Duncan thought thia an unreasonable request; merely to set apart
The Baptists of England record a
very successful missionary year. Tho
income, £70,000, was the largest ovor
reached. In India 40 new schools had
boon established, und a good many
thoroughly educated natives aro studying for tho ministry. In China the
work also goeB on prosperously. The
year seemB to have been an exceptionally prosperous one.
Weighed in the Balance, but not
found wanting, Northrop & Lyman's
Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure
has been weighed in that just balance,
the experience of an impartial and Intel
ligeut public Both remedtally and pecuniarily it is a success. Its sales constantly increase, testimony in its favor is
daily pouring in. The question of Its
efficacy in Dyspepsia, Liver Complaint,
Kidney Ailments, and for Blood Impurity
is decided.
The Church Missionary Society of
England had last year tho largest income it had evor received, amounting
to £234,039. Eighteen university
graduates hod during the year been
accepted as missionaries, twelve of
them from Cambridge
Mr. H. McCaw, Custom House, Toronto, writes: "My wife waa troubled
with Dyspepsia and Rheumatism for a
long tune; she tried many different medicines, but did not get any relief until
she used Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable
Discovery and Dyspeptic'Cure. She has
taken two bottles of it, and now finds
herself in better health than she has been
for years."
