Dow Fail Van a Train M.ve t
Many questions have been asked
concerning tke highest speed possi-
to be attained by a railway locomotive. The London Engineer submits
the statement that eighty miles an
hoar is tho greatest possible limit,
and for the following reasons:—
Because no greater velocity has
ever been attained,
Booause of th* flsiStSiTcftir the
air.
Because of the bark pressure of
the cylinders.
Because of tho amount of puwer
which must "no doubt In* lost ih
imparting violent motions to masses
of metal which can mako no return
when coming to rest. The swinging of the engine, the excessive vibration of its parts, and the jar and
concussion all operate to the same
end, and tend.to keep down the
speoil."
Becuuse of "tho extraordinary retarding influence of very moderate
rising gradients."
Bccauso of the coupling rod—"it
appears to be beyond question that
coupling an engine tends to keep
down the speed."

A Modern Laura..
A latter-day Lazarus has temporarily returned to life at a place called Esparron in the department of
the Ilauto-Garonne, France, He
was an elderly man, name Bade,
whoso death had been duly certified
by the local doctors. Preparations
were made for his burial, and the
coffin containing his body was actually lowered inljo the grave, whon a
hollow voice was heard uttering
moans between the four boards,
Thon followod several distinot knocks
on the inside of the coffin lid. Most
ofthe people who were standing
around the grave were terrified and
ran away as if they were pursued by
a battalion, of "bogies." The oure,
the croque-moris, and the sexton
showed, however, no sigs of trepidation, and one of the funeral fraterni
ty of mutes went far the mayor,
while another boldly and rather
practically' shouted down to the supposed dead man, "Attends un peu
mon vieux." ("Wait a bit, old
man.") When the mayor arrived
the coffin was opened and the man
was taken out, but the fright was
too much for him. All the town
was soon talking of the "modern
Lazarus," whose resurrection was re
gardod as a miracle; but, after having hovered a day or two between
time and eternity, the venerable villager at last departed from tbo pre.
oincts of the cheerful day in real
earnest.

.   Attacked by B«a!-rel..
Many incidents are narrated of
weasels attacking, savagely biting
and sometimes even killing human
beings, But squirrels are regarded
ob more timid and harmless animals,
yet the following anecdote illustrates
that they, under certain circumstances, may become formidable antagonists. Colonel J. L, Oulbertson,
of Edwnrdsport, Ind., tells it as a
story of his experience about the
year 18S4, tho time of the great migration of squirrels from the oast to
tho west.
He was a young man then, and
one day took his rifle and went
about a mile from town to hunt.
He was going through the woods
when he met the army of squirrels.
They became so thick around him
and seemed so fearless that he stood
in amazemont
Finally he struck one with a stick.
Tho squirrel uttered a sharp squeal,
and instantly myriads of squirrels
from all directions rushed to the defence of their associate and attacked
Mr. Oulbertson, who kicked them off
and dubbed them with his gun.
They climbed up his legs, jumped
upon his baok and on top of his
head,
He fought desperately, but the
more he succeeded in hurting the
louder the chattering and screaming
around him became, whioh only
brought greater numbers of the infuriated little animals to the attack.
They bit his logs and arms and
gashed his face and nook, and lacerated his hands, fairly scrambling
ovor each other in their fierce assault.
He drop] od his gun and letreat-
ed as fast as he oould, fighing desperately as he went Blood streamed down his face and neck and
hands. They bit him through the
ears, and held on until they actually
tore their hold loose.
He got out of the woods, and still
stores followed him and olung to him
until they wore pulled off by the
clerk ana others in a store into
whioh young Oulbertson rushed for
assistance. Some of the friends who
holped to pull oil the squirrels, and
Children Cryfor Pitcher'sCuto-rlg
who saw him come into town literal
ly beset with them, still reside at
Edwardsport,
His friends washed his wounds
and staid the flow of blood which
trickled down his legs and gushed
from his face and neck, and with
good caro and attention he slowly
recovered.

It ii in old saying tbat "charity
begins at home," and although, per
haps, understood diftrontly by different perwni, might be mado useful iu practice if only lelflslititun ba
kept in check. "Self preservation
is the flrst law of nature:" but even
in that endeavor selfishness often
steps in and dictates the means—
Which may be at the expense of our
neighbors' welfare. The golden rule
Ib generally accepted in the abstract
as a proper regulator of conduot, but
in practice some other is usually
substituted. In most of the relations of life—domestic and social—
the spirit of selfishness is apt to intrude and play havoc: what wonder, then, that in wider spheres,
with fewer wholesome restrictions,
unpleasant collisions should occur.
Some of our readers no doubt recollect the time—29 years ago—when
this place was chosen by Ool. Moody,
of the Royal Engineers, as the Beat
of government for British Columbia.
Col. Moody, in addition to his duties
as chief of the military engineers
sent out to the then new crown
colony of British Columbia, was also
appointed by the crown to oot as
ohief commissioner of lands and
works. Whon he arrived hero, wo
believe, in the fall of '58, he found
that Gov. Douglas, who had been
chief factor for the H.B.Co., had
selected Langley—one of the company's posts—as the seat of government for the new colony of B.C.,
and had commenced to put up the
necessary buildings for the accommodation of the soldiers, ic. After
examining the surroundings, including Burrard Inlet, Semiahmoo and
Boundary Bays, and the approaches
to the site chosen for the seat of
Government by Gov. Douglas, Col.
Moody (who was perhaps the best
topographical engineer in the service) concluded that Langley—
which by the governor was named
Derby, in honor of the then secre
tary for the colonies—was not the
proper place for the seat of government, and, after representations pro
and con, the present site, which was
first named Queensborough, and afterwards re-named by the Queen herself, New Westminister, was selected as the permanent seat of government for the new colony of B. G,
At first the island of Vancouver was
a distinct and separate colony; but
British Columbia, with her vast
natural resources, very soon outstip-
ped the island colony, and the influence of the Hudson Bay Co.,
being then paramount in this west-
era section of the Queen's dominions, they easily succeeded in getting the island colony tacked on to
the mainland, and also in removing
the seat of government for the
now united colonies to Victoria.
And this act was what the main-
landers have always looked upon as
"self-preservation" on the part of
the island capital, with a vengeance.
But we will not dwell on this feature of the early history of B. C;
for, although it was a very trying
ordeal to the early pioneers of New
Westminister city and district, yet,
from' the knowledge that the Boyal
City was situate in the centre of one
of the best agricultural and lumbering districts on the Pacific coast,
with unquestionable facilities for
trado and commerce, and a most
healthy und charming situation on
one of the easiest and safest navigable rivers in the world teeming
with an abundance of the finest
food iish in existence; and, believing that time's changes would fully
repay them for all the heartless mis-
government that they had experienced in the past as pioneer colonists, they have been enabled, by
patience and perseverance, to survive
all their difficulties, and are now in
a position in which the resources of
this city and  district  can be fully
Westminster has now got connection by the O.P.R., with the sister
provinces of the Dominion, and will
soon havo the like connection with
our cousins to the southward; so
that it ean well afford to forget the
past, and has now no need to envy
any plaoe—not even that "energetic
citj-, Vancouver, with all its adventitious advantages. We might
be jealous of the favors that hnve
been conferred on our young sister
if we did not feel certain that every
house that is built anywhere on the
inlet, from Port Moody to Vancouver, is merely an extension of our
suburbs and an addition to the
wealth of this district. Although
Vancouver's citizens are in great
part composed of enterprising nnd
adventurous men from live cities
such as Winnipeg was a few years
ago, and that some jealous persons
are just mean enough to prognosticate that Vancouver will collapse us
did other boomed towns, yet we art*
not disposed to favor such an event,
because such a boom-orang would be
a great calamity to all concerned in
th<> welfare of B.O. "If one member laWriithe Mole body sufl'trs."

Tin* present pnbliihors. of .Tim
OomimuuN do not wish to continue
the disoussion tlmt was in progress
between the former publishers and
the Vancouver .Voids, with regard to
the contemplated improvements at
the mouth of the Fraser. We consider that it is perfect folly for the
News to attempt, or more properly,
to affect, to servo honestly two rival
interests, because anything that will
remove the shifting obstacles to the
freo entranee of the Fraser must of
necessity militate against the future
prospects of Vancouvor as a salt
water shipping port. We often hear
of ships at the inlet being beached
for the purpose of taking tho barnacles off their, bottoms. The Fraser
river fresh water would take off the
barnacles without a scraper—which
would be a safer and cheaper process for ship owners. We wish to
be candid with our cotemporary of
the News by saying that the articles
which he hns published with respect
to the mouth of the Fraser have
been calculated to magnify the obstructions to the entrance of the
river, and nlso to establish the principle that it was not the proper
duty of tho Dominion government
to remove the obstructions (which
are merely an accumulation of sand
caused by the shifting currents of
the river), but thut Westminster
city should shoulder the cost of
keeping the ohannel open and free
from Buch obstructions. We contend that the obstructions to navigation of the Fruscr nre not formidable, and that it is the duty of the
Dominion government to keep them
removed, and that only for the too
successful machinations of selfish
and interested parties in the past,
the noble Fraser would still have
continued to float, as formerly, the
largest ships on the Pacific. We are
glad that we can congratulate our
readers on the fact that present indications point to the speedy realization by the much-maligned Fraser
of its .long-postponed majority—its
inalienable birthright—to be an incomparable highway and port for
the commerce of the world.

Afterthere had teen aome praying done
and a hymn bad been anng, tbe minister
rose and looking at me aaid:
"Wo will now ask Brother —," meaning me, "to lead In prayer."
I thought mighty quick for abont ten
seconds; my thloklng flywheel flew
around. It wu a queation ot policy I was
debating In that Interval.  Then 1 aaid:

I    Tho minister wu profuu In his praise

The little girl had beeu taught to pray

It waa "God bless papa, and God bleu
momma, and God bless Aunt Mary, and
God bless Uncle George," nud so ou. She
had got lt all so perfect that nobody paid
much attention to the names she put In.
Thegrow-up sister happened to come
Into the nursery while she was aaylng her
prayers, and that seemed to recall the
child to a mistake shs had made. Bhe
stopped a moment and then said:
"Please, God, I made a mistake. Don't
bless Geoigo Smith, 'cos Kitty went to the

A Valuable DI«Wr!*.
Mr. Fi'i-rW, whilo working in his orchard this morning, cleaning the. fruit
trees from the caterpillar pest, mule a
discovery that may pr.ve very valuable to ali. orohardists who have been
troubled with ..caterpillars. After re,
moring a largo duster of these insects
Mr. Ferris applied a whitewash brush
td the spot which thoy hod W'orcd,
and, to his surprise, tho edges of tho
whitewash immediately, curled over, a
proceeding" that caused him lo ox-
amine the place closely, and i it waa
then ho discovered tho bark waa overlaid with a gelatinous substance which
enveloped a mass of eggs. This accounts for tho vusfinoreiiso in tho
number of caterpillar worms each succeeding year, most of which Mr. Ferris thinks may bu uostroyod by 'using
lime whitewash freely at this seawn.
An Inlerosllng Event.
Rov. G. C. Patterson, of Chilliwhack, goes ovor to Vancouvor tomorrow to officiate at a double

" The British Columbian."
The Columbian issued its first
numbor under the new management
on Friday and tho News-Advertiser
wishes its cotemporary under its present proprietors much prosperity.
Though it may solely possess the
name, yet tho evcuing journal of, the
Royal City will doubtless admit that
others of the pvovinoisl journals are
equally and, ns thoroughly "British
Columbians" an it is aud if it will
evince a liboral spirit and strivu to excel
its contemporaries in enterprise and
energy the result will be as satisfactory
to itself as it will be advantageous to
the interests of New Westm1 iBter.—

Ueneucd a prisoner.    .
On Saturday evening" Constable
Smith was attracted to tho vicinity of
the Cleveland Hotel by tho conduct of
a man who was drunk and acting in a
vety disorderly manner on the streot.
Tho constable planed him under arrest
.and'.waa about to remove him to tho
lockup when a number of men came
came out ofthe hotol and rescued tho
man. Constable Sftiitli return ;1 to
the polico. station, and, procuring a
warrant, wont back to the Cleveland,
aud along with Constable .Carty, convoyed the man, who gave'his name as
Mitchell, to tho lockup. After being
mado a prisonor Mitchell struggled
with the police to make his escape, but
Without a.vaii- Bail was accepted in tho
tum.if $50 for Mitchell's reappearance
on .Wednesday, when tho case will be
heard. Interfering with tho police in
the execution of their duty is n--.voiy
serious matter, and it ia well for would-
be.roacuers to bear in mind that tho
punishment is greater for those who attempt to free a prisoner than for such
offenses as the prisoner committed in
this case.       j^

A fiatic encounter, between ono of
"Vancouver's aldermen and the City Au-
ditor,took place on ono of the principal
'streets of that city ou Friday last, lt
appears tho City Auditor, who is also a
collector, had a suit for debt against
tho alderman before tho Potty Debt'
Court, and in the courBe of tho argument the C. A. ia said to have giyeu
tho city father the lie direct. After
the caso had been disposed of, the
alderman wont'up'town 'arid awaited
the coming of tho C. A., who soon afterwards put in an appearance. Tho
alderrpnu then oskul the C. A. to repeat the insinuation hu had used in
conrt, but the latter declined doing so
and further intimated he had nothing
to say tn tho alderman aftor which he
attempted to pa-s on. But the alderman was not to be put ofi so easily aud
telling tho'C. A. to "put up his hands"
struck him a couple of very severe
blows ori'the'face and then, allowed
him to depart. Tho C A. got out a
warrant for hiB antagoniat, who also
took out a counter warr mt against the
0. A. for using abusive language. The
alderman waa fined $1, tho lowest possible fine, and the charge against the
C. A., for. using abusive language, was
dismissed on the grounds that the insinuations had boen mado in court.
Tbe Water.
The water in the river still continues to rise slowly and is now within 3
inches of.last year's high water mark,
but yot lacks somo three Toet of extreme high water mark. No serious
apprehension is felt of a Hood this season and old timers are nf ths opiniijn
that a fow days more will sen the water
down to ordinary Bpring' level again.
The high wator has made the ourrent
muoh more swift than ordinary and the
K. de K, and other small craft find*
some trouble in matting the opposite
side of tho river. Large quantities of
driftwood continue to pass, down river,
Irut the volume hns greatly decreased
during the pust24 houn.
■   Mr. John, n. r. P., Be.Has.
Mr. B. F. John, senior member for
Victoria distriot, has reaigmrd his seat
for tlio purpose of ircceptd.g the war
denship of thepwrnnciafc 'jail. Vidtorii.;
It is understood Mr. James Tolpiie, oi
Clnvordalo, sou of the lato Dr. Tolmio,
has consented to, tiko the tiold fi a
supporter of tho govortitnafii, rrf which
parly Mr. John wns a faithful adherent. Mr. Iia Wilson also announces
himself a candidate un tlie independent.
Jo". Beaudin, M. D., Hull, I'. Q.,
writes: "Dr. Thonipi' Kclectric Oil,commands a large and j'lereasing sale which
it riohly merits. I hive always found it
exceedingly helpful; I uso it in all cases
of rheumatism, as well .an frartrrrira and
dislocations. I made nso of it myself to
calm tlie pa:ns of a tr ikon leg with dislocation of the foot; and in two days I
Was entirely relieved of tho pain."
Tho 'continued nnd praiseworthy
ctlVrts of the Royal City Planing Mills
Co. to necure a vcsel to load lumber
at thoir mills in this city, for the foreign market, has at Inst been rewarded
with.success. Mr. Boucher infotms us
that'tho company lias chartored the
ship Oamana, Capt. Gordon, 700 tuna
register, to lond lumber for Australia.
The vessol is now discharging cargo at
Viotoria and will bo towed to this port
by the str. Alexander about the latter
end uf tliis week. Tho mills aro now
at work getting out tlio cargo nnd in a
few days will coinnluiico running night
and day so that there will be no delay
in loading, and thus enable tho captain
to sail with a favorable iniplesaion of
tho port. Tho limnngomcnt of tho B.
O. P. M. Co. wero detormined tp opon
tho port of Westminister to ocean-going vessels and fortunately havo succeeded in doing so, but in order to
effect this end special inducements had
to bo offered. A groat many obstacles
were placed in tho way of tho company
in accomplishing this desired end, and
chief among which was the report of
the soundings takon on the sandheads
by Oapt. Lewis, of the marine department, who reported thoro wero only 7
feet of water over the heads at low-
lido. Those soundings wore takon after Cnpt. Johnson and Capt. McAllister, the well-known pilots, had sounded the channel for the boai'd of trade,
aiid who reported 11 feet of water at
the shallowest part of thu channel at
low tide, and 25 feet of wator at high
tido. There is a wide difference between tho two reports, but there is not
the slightest doubt us to the correctness of CaptB. McAllister and Johnson.
On Thursday laat Capt. McAllister, accompanied by Capt. Johnson, took
frosh soundings of tbo channel over
the sandheads whioh resulted in finding 15 feet of water, at the shallowest
part, at low tide, thus giving 29 feet
of water at high tide, or more than
sufficient to float any vessel with safety that visits theBe waters. Tho deep-'
eniug of the channel by 4 feet in lerra
than three months shows how very
easy the work of putting the channel
into proper shape for safe navitt.it ton
will be whon the trifling improvements
already mado have accomplished such
good results. What we now r quire,and
it must be done immediately, is that
tho Dominion government take stops,
at once, to iasue a chart so that the
port can be registered at Lloyds and
ull ship brnkors and owners throughout
the world. Owing to the evidencoa of
hostility shown this port from ouKdcrs
ibis nothing more than fair that the
superintendent Of the river improvements should bo located in this city,
and that he be a man with a thorough
knowledge of tho duty before him, and
who is also alive to the interests of the
city. A man of this kind would accomplish more and do a greater
amount of good than half a dozen
regularly srlarted government officials.
With tho arrival of the Ctimniia it is
thought there will be no further difficulty in ohnrtoring ships, providing always that the channel be surveyed, the
river properly buoyed nnd the improvements carried out with no loss of timo.
Thirty feet of water in the channel is
absolutely necessary before the port
can be regiator.. -1 as opeu to all, cln es
of merchant versels, and this wo must
have. The $10,0*",) ottra, secured by
Mr. Chisholm. for tho channel im-
pvovoinentn will do much good if judiciously expended, but $30,000 ttr ?40,-
000 more will bo rcquir 1 to thoroughly complete the work.
The manugerB of tho' Royal City
mills are lo be congratulated on their
success in securing this vesse1,, aud thu
city is to be congratulated on having
within its limitn men of tuclr push and
eiiterpriBe,'aird men who have proved
