Tke Irish Qacllo. rartly Rolved.
From the time that Lathair Croflin
changed its name to Tara or Teu-
mor it stands forth in name and fact
a witness for the Ood of Jacob and
a pure religion. Her christian
church, both in- its doctrine and
ritual, held aloft that true light
which neither the lapse of time nor
the hate of men hns been able to
extinguish. Tan, is supposed by
some to have been the home of the
exiled prophet Jeremiah as it was
afterwards that of St. Patrick, who
preached the gospel there in 432,
Tara was nothing less than the center of a pure religion, and a new
civilization that has moved on from
that day to this; and in the whole
world, at this very moment, there it
none to compare to it. Though is
cost her her very existence, she left,
for all time, an inestimable legacy to
all who were capable of recognizing
its untold value. The divine principles that had made her so distinguished soon passed over of Scotland,
thence to England, and afterwards
to the continent of Europe. Tara
died a martyr, but she left a rich
heritage behind ber. But what is
Tara now! The glorious old city of
a pure religion, that gave birth to
our higher christianized civilization)
Like Babylon, Nineveh, and
Pompeii, it was entombed in the
dust, ages ago. '-A number ot little
hills or mounds, largely artificial,
both dry and barren, now mark the
site of the ancient city, once for a
time, the Jerusalem of the then religious world. Under these are
numerous ruins, holes, caves, and
vaults, into which a person can go
but a short distance because of the
dust of these wonderful remains."
The large square stone on the center
knoll, called Crappy Hill, marks the
burial place of the brave patriots of
1798. But why is the once famous
city,(where every three years the
great Irish council met in its spacious temple to elect a federal king)—
(the glory of old Ireland,) and the
home of a divinely approved religion,
now no morel What was the cause
of its overthrow, with its distinguished college, and massive temples of
worship] Why its complete destruction, and its entire surface obliteration) There is an answer to the
question, but who will give it) Did her
hardy christian sons of toil, distinguished for industry, endurance,
generosity, patriotism, and mental
and physical capabilities of the lint
order, turn their backs upon her
in the hour of her life struggle! Oh!
no! So long as Tara stood it pledged a throne, a people, and a pure
bible religion to Ireland. The Irish
people were God's elect, and intrusted with a divine mission—to
spread a pure Christianity through
Wales, Scotland, England and the
continent of Europe, from which it
was to encircle the whole human
race. "Their religion was free from
idolatry, saints or images, leaching
the doctrine of one Ood, and one
mediator between Ood and man, the
Lord Jesus Christ by whom and
through whom the lowliest and
heaviest purdened sinner of Adam's
race could'stall times have direct
personal access to a loving and for-
Siving Heavenly Father. In christian
octrinei, principles, and practice
Tara stood so high above Rome with
her heathenish religion and social
corruption that her jealousy and
greed became excited, and schemes
for Tara's overthrow were at once
initiated. The king on Tara's
throne was the constituted head and
protector of the Irish church, this
the popes of Rome could not endure,
and they coveted the power, the
treasure, and authority of her royal
defender, as they afterwards did
those of the patriarch of Constantinople. Though Tara bravely stood
in the- way of the unscruplous machinations of Bomo for hundreds of
years, the royal city was finally
overthrown, robbed, plundered, and
cursed by the cruel and crafty agents
of the popes, and a large portion of
Ireland was captured, sold, and enslaved, But why was Tara razed
to the groundl "Ask the well-read
priests why Tara is no morel Ask
them why the city St. Patrick
loved so well and in which he so
arduously labored was destroyed)
Ask them by what authority, and at
whose command, and for what reason, the so-called St. ltuadham and
the bishops in the year 565 took
their bells "which they rung hardly." says the historian, "and cursed
the king and palace, and prayed
Ood that no king or queen ever
after would or could dwelt in Tara,
and that it would be waste forever
without court or palace." When
yon hear tho eloquent preists  quote
lines;—"The harp that once through
Tara's Hull," ask them why it does
not sound there now) Ask them
whp the Catholic authorities aro so
much opposed to the exploration of
the ruins of the once grand old city
that was the capital of Ireland for
more than a thousand years, and
with respect to pure christian worship, the very successor of Jerusalem) It is not likely they will
answer, and thereby criminate their
own authorities concerned. So I
will answer iu my noxt and close
the subject.      Wm. Kent, M.D.

LAST MeWS DESPATCHES.
X OBE1T RIOT IN LONDON.
London, Nov. 13.—The scene at
Trafalgar square to-day has not been
equalled since 186&V when the people,
in asserting their right to hold public
meetings, destroyed the railings of
Hyde Park. Early in the day 1000
policemen took possession of the square
and ita approaches, prepared to hold it
and prevent the advertised meeting.
Soon different club associations, etc.,
began to arrive after having marched
through the various districts to which
they belonged, headed by bands of
music and flying flags, banners, streamers, etc. These detachments were
composed of Socialists. Radicals, Irish
Societies and a few trades' associations,
and as fast as they came to the square
thoy were attacked dispersed by the
police, only to reassemble and press
forward again. As the crowds became
mora dense, fierce fights were started
between the police and the mob in
Northumberland avenue, Whitehall,
Pall Mall and other adjacent streets,
in which the police were uniformly the
victors. One detachment, preceded
by a band, succeeded in getting into
the square, and a bloody fight ensued,
which ended finally in the repulse of
the intruders, and injury of many persons. With this detachment was Mr.
R. 0. Graham, a Liberal M. P. for
North West Lanarkshire, who was
seriously hurt aod subsequently arrested on a charge of assaulting the
police. At 4:40 p.m., the crowd
numbered easily 100,000 and it became
so perfectly manifest that the police
were powerless to disperse it then, that
the military was summoned. In response to this call a force of cavalry
and infantry came up to the ground
but thoy refrained from oharginit upon
tho multitude, because the people
awed by the presence of the troops,
had begun to dispone, and by dusk
comparatively few remained. 200
citizens and 50 of the police were injured in the succession of melees that
took place, and 60 ds u bets were arrested; including Burns, the Socialist
leader. Some of those injured were
well enough to leave the hospital after
their wounds had been dressed, while
othen were so badly hurt that they
cannot fully recover for weeks. One
patient in tlio Charing Gross Hospital
is terribly burned with vitrei, whioh
was squirted upon him from a syringe,
and another man who is severely cut
in tho thigh and in other places, declares ho received the wounds from two
of the police, one of whom thrust a
brtyonet through his thigh, while the
other stabbed him with a knife or
knives. Several of tho injured police
are Buffering from knife wounds. It
was noticeable that the crowd while
hooting, jeering and execrating the
police, cheered tho military. The infantry was posted in the middle of the
square, so thst the mob should not
take possession of the square in case
they succeeded in breaking through
the police line. They did not succeed
in penetrating the police lines, however, and it is perhaps fortunate that
they wero prevented, as it is .believed
that instruolioni had been given that
the riot act should be read, and the
infantry lire upon the crowd, the moment the latter should break through
the police cordon.

MORE FRENCH CORRUPTION.
Paris, Nov. 15.—Leon Grevy,
nephew of the president, is charged by
Seicle to-day with offering to procure t

notary paid the money, but did not
get tho position and sued Grevy, but
the case was settled out of court Henri Rochefort has produced evidence
that M. Wilson received bribes from
the family of Baron Delliers, whose
confinement iu an insane asylum created a sensation some time ago.
AN OREGON SENATOR SPEAKS.
Washington, Nov. 15. — Senator
Mitchell, of Oregon, arrived hen yesterday from the Pacific coast. Boa*
tivetothe Sparks-Lamar controversy
he says he knows of many settlers in
Oregon and elsewhere on the Pacific
coast Who had suffered by reason, of
the policy panned by Hor e—mtulaey
er of the general land office.' nny are
poonmen, and can ill afford to.ocataet
the action of the commissioner in holding up their patents. He expressed hia
regret that the president had pocketed
the river and harbor bill passed at tile
last session of congress. He aaid the
failure of the bill left the people out
on tlie Pacifio coast in a bad shape, so
far as improvement! to water ways ate
concerned, besides the gnat advantage
that would accrue by work on riven
and harbors. The senator said he proposed to do everything in his power to
prevent the carrying ont of Gen. Howard's recommendation for the abaodoo-
ment of Ft. Canby, at tha mouth of
the Columbia river. He thought the
mouth of this important stream should
be fortified.
THIS AFTERNOON'S DESPATCHES.
THE  tACTi-IO nSHERIBB NOT TO  >■
CONSIDERED.
San Francisco, Nov. 15.—A special
from Washington to-day says: It'is
not believed that the Alaska part of
the fisheries contention Will be considered at all at the coming naaenee
conference. The reason for thia belief is that the department of stall, has
not called upon the treasury department for any reports or facts in connection with the seizures by the rev*-
nuo cutters. Revenue maritime officials believe that were it intended to
discuss tho Pacifio fisheries as well as
the Atlantic, they would hav* been directed toget up some information on
which the commissioners could base
their case. They say that thsy may
yet have to do so, and they have ajl
their papers so arranged that* btjat^ .
can be prepared without much trouble.
Ooing,however, to the abort time that
must elapse before the meeting of the
commission, it is not likely that anything will be done. Sh
mission arrive at an t
very quickly, then the Alaskan q
tion may be brought up, but other
not. —'
SENATOR KAWLEY  MARRIED.,,.
Philadelphia, Nov. 16.—Senator
Joseph B. flawley, of Connecticut, was
married at noon to-day, in St 01*smb(*
(Protestant Episcopal) church, to Ws*

been for several years one of the head
nurses of Bldokley hospital, in thl*
city. There were preaent Gen. Sheridan, Senator Piatt, of Connecticut
George W. Childs, Gen. McCook and
Murat Halstead.
THE OPERATION ON THE CROWN PUNCI.
Berlin, Nov. 15.—The ■National
Gazette states that Dr. Braman, senior
assistant of Dr. Bergmann, has fon
to San Reino to be in rediness to assist his chief in the operation of
tracheotomy that is to be performed
ou tho Crown Prince.
a soars STEAMSHIP co.
New Yoyk, Nor. 15.—The Btrald
exposes the Arrow steamship Co. this
morning. Tho company wss organised about one year and a half ago .Willi
a capital of $1,000,000. Th*y pro-
posed to built a fleet of ooean shimess
upon an entirely new plan and premised to revolutionise tha navies of
the world. They claimed that their
vessels would be able to make the rub
to Liverpool in five days, were indestructible and would cost only aboat
one third as much aa the present style
of steamers, The Herald now (tate*
that the company is a fraud and never
intended to build any veasela, but was
organized for the'single purpose of
flouting ita stoek and pocketing the
proceeds.
TIE   ANANCHI8TS   FAMILIES TO Hi

Chicaoo, Nor. 16.—It is announced
today that tbe amnesty society aid
defense committee will join tones sad
assume the responsibility of providing
for the families of ths dead anarehiat*
snd a permanent fund will be established for thst purpose.
A STRANGE CIXCUUB.
City or Mexico, Nov. 15.—A.lively
sensation waa caused here by th* arrival of a circular letter issued byi Ob
Cstholio bishop of the slat* of Saano'-
lipsa, in whioh he said lint ttt—tye la
to the Virgin of Guadalupe, the patree
saint of th* country, waa lot iislisjl
tory on the part of th* faithful, and It
is estimated that papal authority is
against making auch homage a point of
dootrine in Mexico. Thl* strikn a
tremendous blow against'th* time-
honored practice in this oountry nil
comes at a time when the eeronatien
of the Virgin of Guadalupe is a subject of angry oontrovMsy between th*
liberal and churoh party newspapers.
Evidently a progrenive movement has
begun inside th* ohurch where leaned
men begin to hold that th* beat way
to meet effort* of the Protestant tsle-
sionsries is to reform all exMag
abuses and meet education by Protestants with education under Catholic
auspices. The new Liberal-Catholic
movement favors the re-election' of
President Diaz.

Mr. Stenhouse's determination to
hasten to the aid of tho polygamic
church has been reached none too
soon. In 1862 an act was passed
by congress which prohibited the
church from holding real property
of a value exceeding $50,000. The
supreme court of Utah has just declared that the Mormon church
property now exceeds that sum, and
has appointed a receiver to administer the excess. The enforcement of
thi* act will be a .severe blow at the
church, and Mr, Stenhouso had bettor make no delay iu flying to Salt
lake! 	
The secretary of the Ontario
Bureau of Industries has issued a
bulletin containing a statement of
the grain crop of the province for
the preaent year. Fall wheat is
placed at (in round number) 14,500,-
000 bushels, a decrease of 3,500,000
from last year; spring wheat, 5,500,-
000, a decrease of 4,000,000; barley, 17,000,000, a decrease of 1,500,-
000; oats, 50,000,000, a decrease of
8,500,000; pease, 12,000,000, a decrease of 4,000,000. Nothwitstand-
ing thia large decrease, in everything but spring wheat there was a
larger area under crop this year than
last. The average yield per acre is
given as follows: Fall wheat, 16
bus.; spring wheat, 11 _; barley, 22.',;
oats, 29rJ; pease, 16|. Ts a British
Columbian these figures must seem
ridicuously small;
On Saturday we published an
item: respecting the burning of the
house and barn of Mr. Amos Bowman, at Upper Sumas, on the 7 th
inst Further particulars leave very
little doubt that this fire was the
work of an incendiary. Mr. Bowman was in Ottawa at the time,
and Mrs. Bowman was visiting at
Fidalgo Island. Besides household
furniture and provisions the house
contained a number of valuable
book*, papers, tents and instruments
somo of which belonged to the geological survey. In the barn were
seventy-five tons of hay, and other
property. The fire was first observed from the residence of Dr.
Bowman, about a mile distant, and
it ii asserted that the form of a man
was distinctly seen moving in front
of it; but when persons from Dr.
Bowman's residence reached the
place, the man had disappeared, and
both buildings were nearly consumed.
It is commonly believed that this
dastardly aot was committed by a
person who resides in the settlement.
Mir. Bowman has been the object of
a good deal of persecution since ho
took up his residence at Sumas, and
it is believed the object has been to
drive him off his land. This lost
outrage is of a very serious kind,
aid it is to be hoped the person who
committed it will be discovered and
punished with the severest penalty
the law allows. A person who
Would, for selfish purposes, or for
revenge, perpetrate such an outrage,
is a menace to any community, and
ought to be put where it will be impossible for him to repeat his crime.
Mr. Bowman's loss is upwards of
13,000.
The property, known as Black's
Coquitlam ranch, which has been
suggested as the best place for the
location of an experimental farm, is
situated principally between the Coquitlam and Pitt rivers, and may be
said to be bounded on the north and
south by, the Canadian Pacific railway and Fraser river, respectively.
Between the railway bridge and the
provincial bridge the Coquitlam is
divided into two streams, forming
an island of considerable area, being
over a mile in length, with an avenge width of nearly quarterof a mile.
The eastern branch of the river
runs through the farm, and as it is
considerable of a stream, it furnishes
abundance of water for stock, or for
irrigation if required. The situation
is singularly adapted to the purpose
suggested. It is only half a mile
south form the Westminster junction
of the O. P. K, and is,consequently,
distant by nil from this city nine
miles, and from Vancouver seventeen and one-half miles.    There iB
> also an excellent wagon road from
this city to the farm, a distance of
abont seven miles, and it can likewise be reached by a fine road from
Pitt river, a distance of one and one-
half miles. Steamers plying on the
Fritter find no trouble in going up
the "Pitt to this road. It will be
seen, therefore, that the farm is easy
of access from all quarters by rail,
by wnter, and by road, and that it
is convenient to the centers of pop-
ulstion. The toil ita rich black
loam, and it is so sheltered that the
temperature'is milder than that of
almost any! other part ofthe district.
The farm contain* something over
■ 400 aores, of which about 100 are
' now under cultivation, There is
abundance of pure spring water, and
the situation of the property is such
that it may be thoroughly drained
at sswll oosi    These are advanta-
"ge* that every one will admit to be
wortty of very serious consideration
by twee who are responsible for the
location of the experimental farm.

Tho desire for lonn life aeems to be a

of how to live in a physical cense, therefore becomes a subject for careful

person, if wise, comes to study food ana

exertion that is to bo put forth.

is ihe time too lo study tbe tendency of
the system. If it is to leanness on the
one band, or pi iljora on the othor, tbe
fact should gqvern Ihn diiit. Thero are

doctor at forty, liy this tlmo he has
come to aprneeiati some laws of his
own constiliui'in. au'l to have some experience1 a. to hu tendencies. If under
eood Bell-control, lie will heed these
lessons. Not im fcoly he will need to
consult, now and then, the student of
disease, biit ho doea it to obtain his
opinion oh the basis ol his own experience. He take* him into consultation
over his own life, in order that be may
be helped in deductions therefrom. Tbe
law of pliability or adjustment must be
studied and practiced by himself.
Most of thoso who die between
twenty-five and sixty unless they die
by accident die by some indiscretion.
It is the over-'ndiilgance of appetite,
or tbe neglect of loo 1 when needed, or
the overstrain of business, or wposurt
to changes ol tempera ure without corresponding change of clothing. Most
people of these ng es are conscious of the
error after it has boen made, or others
•re conscious of it for them. Without
undue captiouiness we can not* changed
conditions and adapt ourselves thereto.
Multitudes die prematurely by reason
of an indiscretion which might have
been easily avoided, lt is intellegent
caution tint saves sickness, and this
caution ought to be-In possession and

much easier to prevent serious sickness

After middle life it ts always to bo

flexible and less easily nourished. Organs have not tho activity ol youth.
Some of them have become more or leu

Well-known phrases:
Dido, Queen of Tyre, about soven
centuries b fore Lhrist. after hor hut-
linn I had been put to donth by her
if'iitlior, lied from that city nnclcBtab-
lis'icd a oniony on the nnrth const of

the hide into narrow Btrips, tied them

way; and now, when ono plays a sharp
trick, lie is said to "out a dido."
During a battle between the Russians
and Tartars, a private soldier of the
former cried out: "Captain, I've raurrlit
a Tartar." "Bring him along," s.ri I trio
officer. "He won't let me," was the response. Investigation proved that tho
captive bad the captor by tho arm, and
wi>;ild not allow him to move. So,
"catching a Tartar" is applicable to one
who has found au antagonist too powerful for him.
The infamous Catherine de Medici
had her favorit' palace, the Louvre,
supplied with acoustic tubes in such a
way that what was uttered in one room
was heard hy her in any other. There-
f ;iv, matters which it was considered
advrsalilo to keep from her knowledge
wer r discussed in whispers, because tho
''walls have ears."
In ancient times the English wero
wont to cover their floors with rushes;
and, when visitors of distinction wero
expected, fresh rushes were substituted
for tbe old. The change was not ma lo
if the visitors wero ordinary people who
were regarded "not worth a rush";
later, "not worth a straw/'
In a work, "Essays irom the Desk of
Toor Robert the Scribe," published in
1815, the author, G. Miner, tells tbo
story ol a boy who, by the offer of I iberal
compensation, was induced to turn a
grin istoue for a man who desired to
sharpen bis axe. Tbo promised compensation was nevor paid: and, of ono
who disguises his own selfish aims under
an appearance of generosity or disinterestedness, it is remarked, "Ho has an
axe to grind."
A Bat's Remarkable Instinct.
On a very warm day in early Summer
I happened to be standing near a chicken-coop in a back yard, when I noticed
the head of n very gray and grizzled rat
thrust from a neighboring rat hole, and
concluded to watch the movements of
tho veteran. After a careful survey of
the surroundings our old rodent seemed
to be satisfied that all was right and
made a cautious oxit from the homo re-
treat Afresh pan ol water had been
recently placed before the chicken coop,
and tho water looked a friendly invitation to tbe thirsty old rat, wmuu immediately started towards it.
The rat had not reached tho pan before five half grown young ones rushed
ahead and tried to be flrst at tho water.
The old nt thereupon immediately
made a leap like a kangaroo, an I was at
tliu edge of the foremost of Iter litter.
Then ensued a most remarkable occurrence. The mother raised herself on
her haunches, and bit and scratched at
h r otlrpring so severely, whenever they
altcnvrt'id to reach the water, that they
all liiidly scudded away, evidently very
iruirM astonished anrl frightened nt the
Strange and unaccountable behavior of
tlwir mother. When tho littlo ones
my re at a safe distance, tho reasons for
hr r extraordinary behavior began to bo
reve.deii at once in the intelligent action
ol tho old mother rat.
She first wot her whiskers in the
water, looked suspiciously about her,
then very cautiously and carefully took
a dainty little sip of tho liquid. Sho
tasted it as tentatively and critically as
a professional tea taster, and whenshe
was satisfied that it contained no poisonous or deleterious matter, sho gavo
a ciinplo of squeaks which quickly
bro.ig.it her young and thirsty brood to
lier side, and all fearlessly drank to
tlieir fill. Now this old mother rat was
experienced, and had evidently learned
ber lea-ori in that school thoroughly,
and so srio would not allow her young
and unlnii jht litter lo tasto water which
might havo contained .rat poison or
what not, until she had satisfied herself
that the liquid was harmless. Does
sot thii look very like reason 1

There are days on which; In certain
weatli r, and despite tbo ourv.il 11 of
tho earth, the distance of vi.i.ilily is
doubled ot. npn than doubled, This
r'.i nomenon is explained to us by a
well-known law of physics. If we
throw a coin Into an empty vessel, it
Will be hidden by the edge of the latter
at a certain distance; but if we fill the
vessel with water the coin will becomo
visible. We have hero a cms cf refraction, such, as is explained: In olo-
ihetttary works on phjrsiis. Evetyone
also knows the theory of the mirage put
forth by the celebrated Monger, who cx-
Slains the phenomenon aa duo to a
iminution of the air's density in contact with the siipcrhonted earth. A
contrary theory will explain the mirage
ot sea. While tho sun is making the
atino phoro intouscly hot, tho sea nnd
tho s rata of air in contact therewith
re nail relatively cold, ami these strata
boio no superposed in the order of tlieir
ilenrily. A luminous ray emanating
from the set wll piss'front one str.i.iiin
into another of leas density, there will
bo a refrn tion, nnd an object beiieritli

supposes two conditions, to wit, a heating of the atmosphere, while the sea
an I earth remain relatively cold, an 1 a
calmness of it to permit its strata to bo-
roni" Hriperposerl In tbo order of their
densi:y. lt Is precisely when these two
cnnliiiims aro fu'li.lud that tlie phenomenon of the mirage occurs. Un

Constipation
Is a universal and most troublesome ills-
order. It causes Hoadaulie, Mental Depression, impairs the Sight and Hearing,
destroys the Appetite, and, when long
continued, causes Enlargement of the
fiiver, Inflammation of the Bowels, and
Piles. Constipation is speedily cured
by Ayer's Pills.
For a number of months I was
troubled with   Costiveness, in conse-
Suence of whioh I suffered from Loss of
.ppetito, Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. Mr eyes also troubled me. I was
compelled to wear a shade over them,
and, at times, wns unable to bear exposure to the light.  I was entirely
CURED BY USING
three boxes ot Ayer's Fills. I have no
hesitation in pronouncing thia medicine
to be the best cathartic ever made.—
James Eccles, Poland, Ohio.
I suffered from Constipation, and, con,
sequently, from Hoadaehe, Indigestion,
and Files, for years. Ayer's Fills, which
I took at the suggestion of a friend, have
given me effectual relief. I commenced
taking this remedy two months ago, and
am now free fium Constipation, the removal of whioh has caused my other
troubles to disappear, and greatly improved my general health.—W. Eeeler,
Amherst, Mass.
I suffered from Constipation, which

"Treatment by Absorption has for some

be the most simple and effectual means
of conveying to Diseased Oigans, "Curatives," but ln cases of Kidney Disease and

Pad. It costs less than a single prescription and Is Immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity of internal

become absorbed by the diseased and enfeebled Organs,continuously and directly,
as required to Insure In return their healthy aotion and original vigour. It Is comfortable to tbe patient and pleasant In Its

This afternoon a message was received by wire from Nanaimo, stating
that Mr. W. F. Arohibald, manager of

Mr. Arohibald was well known in this
oity, where he resided for a number of
years, and it is feared tint this message may create a vacuum in
the hearts of somo lonely maidens of
the royal city. The event hns produced quite a sensation iu telegraph
circles, for Mr. Archibald has hosts of
friends. The Columbian commends
hiB good sense, and offers sincerest

Ike Delayed Passengers Arrive.
The steamer Irving arrived down at
12:20 to-day with the mails and pas-
seniors, from the delayed trains, which
were taken on nt Harrison. In all
there wero about 100 passengers, and
none of them seemed to hnve Buffered
from their unintentional visit at Harriaon. The railway company provided
the passengers with tho best food obtainable, but some of tho delicacies had
to be dispensed with as they were not
procurable on the market thore. It
wu expected by the railway officials
that the road would be in readiness for
traffio somo time to-day. A train wns
in waiting to take the delayed passengers to Vancouver, and immediately on
the arrival of the 1 o'clock express it
pulled ont.	
Over tke Wharf!
This morning ChaB. Bradbury, a boy
iu the employ of Mr. Marshal Sinclair,
grocer, took a horse and delivery wagon for the purpose of delivering 300
lbs. of apples at Wise'B wharf, for
shipment down the river. Aftor
reaching the wharf the rig was standing with the rear end towards ono of
the slips, and the horse began to back.
Bradbury wu in front of the animal,
with the lines in his hands, and began
pulling to stop further progress in that
direction, but as they passed through
the hamea this action had the very contrary effect, and the horse kept backing until the wagon went over, enrry-
the horse with it into the Fraser. Tlie
wagon, of course, sank; and although
efforts wero made to free the horse,
they were unsuccessful, and it wont
down too. Grappling irons were procured, and after ubout fifteen minutes Uie rig was found and floated
down to the C. P. II. wlinrf, and finally brought to shore. The horse was
worth about $100, and the wagon $150.
The animal belonged to Messrs. Kelly

Tke Keller Expedition Brlnrns Safely.
The str. Stella arrived back from tho
Squamish River last night with Ihe
Nurwegian settlers all safe and suund.
Col. McGregor kindly furnished our
reporter with nn account of the trip.
The steamer left at 11 o'olock ou Saturday expecting to reach tho Squamish
that night, but nn entering Howo
Sound a storm aroso and they ran into
a cove on Bowen Island for shelter.
Tho storm continuod oil night and in
the morning the sea was still high, but
as the lives of iho settlers were in
danger it wu decided to mako the at
tempt to relieve them and .accordingly
tho steamer's how was turned in that
direction. Having a scow iu tow made
the trip exceedingly dangerous, but
the Squamish was reached abt.ut 4 in
the afternoon without mishap. On
arriving it was found' that tbo Norwegians were all safe, and as the water
had gone down their sufferings had
been greatly reduced. Col. McGregor
gave orders that everything should be
packed up and gut in readiness to leave
at daybreak; this was done, and at 8
o'clock yesterday morning the steamer
loft the rivor and arrived in this city
at 6 o'clock last,evening. The party,
who are now comfortably housed in
the Immigration Sheds, number in all
18 persons, men, women snd ohildren.
Thoy will remain here until a new location for settlement is decided on,
but they seem to be determined not to
try the Squamish River again.

Chief Engineer Webb wu requested
to address the council on matters connected with his department. Mr.
Webb said he wished to call the attention of the council to the fact that
tlioro was uo engineer or assistant engineer for the fire engine,, and one
should bu appointed without any delay. If a tire should occur it would
place him in a very awkward position
and tho city too. He had tried his
best to get un engineer, but hadfuiled.
Ho had asked the firemon to turn out
and have a practice but they refused,
saying that unless the council treated
them better and wero more liberal with
them, they would not turn out. Mr.
Webb also complained thut the expenses of the department were growing all the time, and the money placed
at his disposal wu inadequate to meet
these expenses. Ho had naked tho
firemen to turn out nud fill the empty
tanks, hut they said tho council might
do the work themselves. He also recommended the oouncil should purchase
a heater for the.fire engine. Taking
tho wholo situation into consideration
Mr. Wobb was of the opinion that it
wu serious for the city, and he naked
tho council to take prompt measures to
romedy theso evils.
Coun, Jacques, seconded by Coun.
Curtis, moved that the appointment of
nn engineer be referred to the fire committee with power to engage an engineer.   Carried.
Mr. Joseph Armstrong was then invited to lay the proposed advertising
scheme for the city and district of New
Westminster bofore the council. Mr.
Armstrong laid tho scheme .before the
council in u clear and conciso manner,
at tho same time illustrating the many
advantages to be derived from it, and
uking the counoil to give the project
its best Bupport.
A vote of thanks was passed to Mr.
Armstrong for his enterprise, and the
trouble ho had gone to in perfecting
the project.
Coun. Duncan thought an expression
of the council should bo given on this
matter, u it was very important.
On motion of Coun. Shiles it was
moved, seconded ond carried thnt the
other municipalities of the district be
invited to co-operate in getting up the
folder. ltwas nlso agreed that the
council would contribute $200 u its
shore of the cost, and if each other
council contributed $100 it wob thought
that would bo sufficient to defray tho
cost of 25,000 foldors.
Coun. Curtis called attention to the

Mr. T. C. TJurobard, publio school
teacher, Norland, writes: "During the
fall of 1881 I was much troubled with
Biliousness and Dyspepsia, and part of
tho time was unable to attend to tho duties of my profession. Northrop k Ly
man's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure was recommended to mo, ana I
havo much pleasure in stating that I
was entirely cured by using one bottle.
I have not had an attack of my old complaint since, and havo gained fifteen
pounds in weight."

Gilbert Laird, St. Margaret's Hope,
Orkney, Scotland, writes; "I am requested by several friends to order another parcel of Dr, Thot as' Kclectric
Oil. The last lot I got fro n you having
been tested in several cases of rheumatism, has given relief when doctors'
medicines have failed to have any effect.
The excellent qualities of this medicine
should be mode known, that the millions
of sufferers throughout the world may benefit by Its providential discovery."

C. C. Jacobs, Buffalo, N. Y., says:—
"Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil cured bim of
a had case of piles of 8 years' standing,
having tried almost every known remedy, 'besides two Buffalo Physicians,'
without relief; but the Oil cured him; he
thinks it cannot be recommended too
highly. There being imitations on the
market of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil customers will see that they get the genuine.
