New Bedford, HaverkOt, Obtaeerter,
Springfield, Waltham, KotttMupton,
Brockton «nd Cambridge, all of
whieh voted for license last year,
have this year joined the ranks of
temperance cities, The liquor deal-
en of the state are gieatly alarmed
over the prospect aad sn holding
secret meetings to adjiaM* their interests. Their protebtbt astooi*
tion has issued a ciroulw whioh'
says: "Immediate and active work
ii absolutely necessary by she liquor
element of Massachusetts to light
the enemy." Speaking of the result of last week's election the Boston Travdk says: "It is'not only in
the highest degreo gratifying, but is
decidedly significant of thr growth
of au anti-saloon sentiment and a
conviction on the part of the people
that prohibition oan be madt to prohibit It will encourage tht friends
of temperance in the cities where
elections are yet to be held to make
a supreme effort to free tha municipalities of Massachusetts from the
curse and power of the si'
N.i. Oburm.
Evolution has still some hard nuts
to crack, at least unless a space of
time absolutely unlimited is allowed
for the process of natural selection,
or of natural selection and heredit-
ism being, let us observe, a supplementary addition to the original
theory, and an account of the matter hardly less mysterious than creation itself. One of these nuts a
writer on the Origin of Instinct in
the Heoue des Deux Monies essays
to crack. It may be objected, lie
observes, to the theory of heredit
ism that among animals the acts
phiih are assumed to have given
birth to an hereditary tendency
were purely accidental, and suoh us
could leave no trace on the organ
ism. Suoh, for example, is the act
of a European cuckoo laying its egg
in tke nest of another bird. The
thing may have happened once, and
possibly, as Darwin suggests, the
young cuckoo in that particular case
may have derived some advantage
from it, and have thus survived in
the struggle for existence. But
how did it become common to the
whole species, and hereditary) The
writer in the Deux Monies says
that there is a tendency in young
children, which is strong also in all
inferior intelligences, such as tliose
of animals and idiots, to the me-
ohanioal repetition of an action
until it becomes a confirmed triok.
Of this he cites several instances
auoh as that ot a caterpillar, whioh
will starve rather than eat the leaves
of any plant but the one to whioh
it happens to liave become accustomed. The hen ouckoo, according
to this theory, having once laid Iier
egg in nnother bird's nest, repeated
herself mechanically till tho habit
became ingrained and was transmitted, with the organism, to her
progeny. This might account,
though we canuot help thinking in
a supersubtlc manner, for the hered
itary eharaoter, but would hardly
account for itl universality. Are
we to suppose that in the struggle
tor existence all the European cue
koos perished exoept the progeny of
the one whieh had by accident laid
its egg in the nest of another biivll
But the whole subject seems replete
with difficulties for the evolutionist. An ordinary bird builds a nest
in anticipation of. laying its eggs.
By what process of natural selection or of natural selection and
hereditism combined enn this fore
oast have been evolved) We may
go further back and ask how, in the
beginning of things, there oan have
been a bird without an egg or an
egg without a bird) Any conceivable process of evolution which
oould afford a solution of tbis problem seems to postulate infinite time;
and infinite time, the astronomers
tell us, must not be postulated.
Evolution is still a hypothesis, and
it is not the only hypothesis which
covers the facts. They are equally
covered by that of a single creative
force, infinitely various in its productions but showing its identity by
homologies.—Tke Wetk.,

Notice " J. A. Robinson
gail*j fvitish Columbian
Monday Evtuinjt, January .1,
1887.
Most of our readers woro agreeable surprised nt the splendid exhibit of city improvement shown in
our issue of Friday. Two hundred and fifty thousand dollars worth
of improvments in a city of something over 3,000 inhabitants is a
very satisfactory showing. If New
Westminster was a "boom" town it
would not be much; but this is not,
and never has been, a boom town,
and we hope it never will be. Vic
toria, which claims a population
more than three times as large as
ours, aud which has been very highly favored hitherto iu many respects, claims only $550,000 expended iu improvements, which is very
little more than twice as much as
has been expended in New Westminster. Vancouver lays oluim to
nu expenditure of nearly $2,000,-
000; but Vancouver has boen wholly
rebuilt during the year, and in the
estimate has been included the
clearing of land, grading of lots,
building of bridges, and all street
and railway work. Vancouver has
made enormous strides. Six months
ago it wns completely wiped out of
existence, nnd to-day it is a city
nearly as large as New Westminster, although not nearly so wealthy
in buildings and business. It speaks
well for British Oolumbia under the
first year of the railway age that
three of its cities are ablo to show
up vyith about $3,000,000 worth of
improvements. The prospects for
the year on which we ha ve just entered are not less hopeful. In this
city there arc now projected a considerable number of buildings of a
character whieh indicates the most
complete faith in our future. Business men from the east are looking
about for investments in this highly
favored province, and the advantages of this city as a trade and
manufacturing centre do not escape
practical eyes. We shall not be
surprised if the year 1887 sees a
larger expenditure in permanent
improvements than has been made
during the year just olosed. We
have now secured the railway, and
having been released from the financial burden which thut work imposed on us, there will bo this year
a much larger sum of municipal
revenue available for city improvements. There is no doubt but our
saw mills, which during the past
year have been taxed almost to
their utmost capacity, will be kept
very busy through tho whole of
1887. The opening of the lumber
market east of the mountains gives
us a new outlet where the demand
is likely to continue large and constant, and there is no probability of
a decrease in the local demand.
The machinery for our woollen mill
is now in the building, and during
this year we may expect this new
industry to go into operation, adding
considerable to the importance of
the oity. We are likely, also, to
have a very extensive fresh fish
packing establishment erected at
once, with complete freezers and
every modern convenience necessary
to the handling of a very large
fresh fish trade. Mr. D. W. Port
and Mr. Ed, Port, of Toronto, are
now in the city making arrangements with this object in viow, and
as these gentlemen have had long
experience in this business there is
little doubt but the venture will be
successful. The improvements commenced at the mouth of tho river,
if prosecuted with vigor as wo expect they will be, will enable vessels of all classes to come to this
eity without any risk and with less
delay than is usually experienced
in going up the Oolumbia River to
Portland. The development of the
agricultural resources of this district promises to ba large during
the year, and there will also be an
unusually large amount of roadwork performed by the government.
It is for the people now to lay
their plans so that lhey shall be
able to reap the full benefit of the
very favorable circumstances of the
year upon whioh we have entered.
The future of this province is in
the hands of its people, and they
may make of it what they will.
Never before in the history of tho
country were the prospects moro
bright The fruits of many years
of patient toil and waiting are
coming within reach, and may be
gathered this year by skilful hands.
A burglar who was doing a neat job
on a safe was horrified on looking up
to see a man standing quietly beside
him. Be was about to retire whon
the gentleman said: "Go ahead. I nm
interested in that job." "Why 1" asked the astonished burglar. "Because
I have forgotten the combination and
no living person knew it but myself.
If you can get that safe opon I'll make
it worth yonr while."—Burlington Free

Mountain Mines.—Two mines have
been discovered right along the C.P.R.
line through the Selkirks, but the
want of machinery and capital has yet
prevented their richness being fully
tested. Thoy aro both along the Illo-
cille river. One mine, situated at Albert Canon, is only 400 yards from the
track. It is suid to have n voin of
gold-bearing quartz 20 feet wido. For
the past yeur a fow men have been employed in taking out ore, which has to
bo shipped to outsido points to be
assayed, as tho necessary machinory
has not yet been placed in the mine.
There is another mine about ten miles
beyond the summit of the Selkirks; it

down the steep slopes of tho mouu

"Happy New Year."
The New Year's reception given by
tlie Woman's Christian Temperance
Union last Saturday in the Drill Shed
proved a most enjoyable atVair, fully
equaling tho anticipations of its projectors.
A home-like aspect was imported
into the Shed by draping the bare
windows and unsightly walls with curtains, furnishing the empty space, with
household comforts and placing an organ in one corner where all who wore
so inclined wero at liberty to join the
happy group of singers standing nrouud
it.
A table provided with refreshments
occupied*,!! prominent position, and the
temperance Indies, gaily attired in
dress caps and aprons, pleasantly greeted their guests nnd poured tea uud
coffee for them from a bright silver
service.
According to invitation gentlemen of
all ranks and ages partook of this seasonable hospitality nud by tlieir looks
and words assured their fair entertainers that they appreciated their
efforts to make them "happy" on thu
first day of tho year 1887. All dny
long the building wus well supplied
with callers and tho ladies kept busy
ut the tables whilo young men away
from homo nnd friends found pure sii
ciety and kindly attentions, became
acquainted with respectable Christian
families, and wore saved from the
temptation of seeking companionships
in the bar-rooms which infest this eity.
During the dny un opportunity was
given, nnd gladly accepted by many, of
signing tho total abstinence pledge of
the W.C.T.U.. though no undue pressure was uaed in that direction nnd nil I
felt free to decline at pleasure.
Noxt year the design of our Christian womon will be better understood, and it is to bu hoped they
will have a hall of their own by that
timp in which to receive tlieir company; so in futuro this method of
spending New Year's day will become
an institution among us, an event to
be looked forward to with delight.
In the evening every available snt
in the Shed was tilled and many were
obliged to stand while Miai Bowes, a
lecturer belonging to the Ontario W,
O. T. U., delivered, nn utrue.t ml-
tires on the subject of temperance,

San Pbakoisoo, Deo. 31.—About a
yoar ngo Capt. H. Peletior, an English
pilot, took tlio aliip Occidental out
from Liverpool. A storm arising, the
captain of the Occidental would not
stop in order to permit Pelotior to return to Liverpool, and in consequence
ho was brought to this port. He
brought suit against the owners of the
ship in the U.S. district commissioners'
court. Tho commissioners granted
libellant $2,000 damages. Both libel-
laut and owners of the vessel took exception to tho commissioners, the former claiming tliat the award was too
small, and the latter that it was too
much. Judge Hoffman, before whom
tho exceptions were argued, has rendered a decision declaring ?4000 damages.
The Chicago Time* Ottawa, Out.,
special says: Great indignation has
been aroused throughout tho country
by an announcement that Sir Adolph
Caron, minister of militia, lias dismissed Deputy adjutant-general Ssrauben-
r.its, aud Brigdier-major Matties, of
Montreal district, both English officers,
to replace tliem with two French Canadians, officers of his own class, for
political reasons. Sir Jno. Macdonald
has placed the control of the militia
under a French Canadian member of
his cabinet, hoping thereby to secure
tho Froncli vote, in whicli he has certainly succeeded up to the present.
The result has been that as fust as a
vacancy occurred or is made, a French
Canadian has been appointed to fill it,
until, in proportion to the population
u very large percentage of the entire
militia for the Dominion is now composed of 'French Canadian nationality.
Tho charge is serious, that to promote
political ends Sir John Macdonald has
placed weapons in the hands of the
French speaking clement to be turned
against tiie Dominion or the British
governmont when tho,French section
of the population chooses. Sir Jno.
Macdonald will bo forced to dismiss
Caron from tlio cabinet. [This despatch will liave to be taken with considerable salt.—Ed. Col.]       ,
Losdon, Dec. 31.—Ten miners wero
killed this morning by the falling of a
cago in a colliery in Houghton spring
iu Durham.
Tlie latest advices from Mandalay
state that the British army of occupation are within 2 miles of the great
ruby mines of Burmah.
Lord Hartington has informed Lord
Salisbury that he and colleagues, including Mr. Goschen, wero in accord
with the belief that it is not advisable
to form a coalition government, but
promise to continue to give the ministry a cordial support. Lord Salisbury
returned to Hatfield to-night, leaving
the composition of the ministry still
uncertain. Ho has offered Mr. Goshen
the position of chancellor of the exchequer, and is awaiting his response.
Goshen has consulted with Lord Hartington and is taking time to consider.
At a late hour to-night he had not replied, and had given no signs. Lord
Randolph Churchill to-day, through
Drummond Wolff, consented to resume
office on condition that Lord Salisbury
give assurance that he would support
his (Churchill's) propoied reforms of
abuses in the navy and military administration. Baron Bowtan conveyed
the offer to Lord Salisbury who rejected it in terms that will widen the
breaoh between hiin and Churohill.
Cleveland, Ohio, Dec. 31.—At
10:30 this morning two boilers in the
Mower and Reaper works at Akron,
Ohio, exploded. The two-story brick
boiler house was demolished and several men were buried in the ruins,
which took fire, and it was with difficulty they were rescued.
Madras, Dec. 31. —A fire broke out
to-day in the reserve enclosures at the

Pabis, Deo. 31.—M. Goblet, prime
minister, received a syndicate of the

them ho did not believo that war was
imminent. Relations with every power
wero excellent: but, ho added, to view
tho possibiliiy of war calmly the nation
must bo powerful onough to protect
her rights.
Denver, Deo. 31. -The boiler in

Pastor ror St. Andrews
From late eastern papc: s we learn

to appoint certain of our number commissioners to ropresent us before the

This resolution, being submitted to the

At the meeting of the Presbytery of
Hamilton, Monday afternoon, Rev.
Thos. Scouler intimated his acceptance
of the call to New Westminster, B.C.,
and bis translation was agreed to by
the Prcabytery, on motion of Rev, D.
H. Fletcher, seconded by Rev. R, J.
Laidlaw, both of whom expressed
their high appreciation of Mr. Scou-
ler's personal worth and of the work
he has accomplished in Hamilton.
They also expressed their sincere regret at his removal from the ranks of
the Presbyterian brotherhood of the
eity. Rev. S. Lyle was appointed to
preach in Erskine church on the first
Sabbath in January and declare the
pulpit vacant, also to act as Moderator
cf tne Session until another pastor is
secured.—Hamilton Times.
Public Llbrarj.
To the People of New Westminster:
Last August, thanka to the courtesy
and kindness of the. city council, I
procured the key of the public library,
opened it on the 7th of that nionth,
and I procured over 100 names. Since
then it has been open for the benefit
of everyone at the rate of 50 cents a
month, or a bit a-week. Now anyone
has a room fnrnished with papers from
all over, or a place to have a game of
chess or checkers for the cost of a cigar a week. If there are 200 people
in New Westminster who believe in
sueh an institution, let them oome forward now, at the beginning of the
year, and lay down the large sum of
50 cts., nnd I will guarantee that the
Institute will be carried on to the satisfaction of every reasonable person.
We are inviting people from the east,
and these can not stay all day and
night on the street, nnd the room will
be a variety from hotel life. An advertisement on the first page explains
the advantages of the place, so everyone should read that. Were it not for
the extra generosity of a few I could
not run the room at all; now, lot
others save up a bit a week, come tor-
ward and subscribe their names, as it
would bB rathor bold for me to ask
anyone to join. More than twice the
length of the building of books to let
ovt. Ladies and strangers free to
the reading room. This is tho first of
the year. You cannot pet a botter
time.   Very respectfully,
Henry W. Hughes,
Manager.
New West,, B. C, Dec. 31,1880.
First Dramatic Performance
on the Pacific coast.
The first theatrical representation
ever produced on the Pacific coast was
given on board the Modiite, a British
man-of-war stationed on the Columbia
river at Fort Vancuver. In his history of Oregon, • Vol. I., Mr. Hubert
Howe Bancroft presents us with n
graphio sketch of the event, the object
of which was to divert the minds of
the people from the " boundary question." Everything ecemed nt lhat
time to point to nn curly collision between tho United States and England.
A botter acquaintance euabled men of
either nation to express political bias
freely, and wordy encounters weru
harmless, as there were uo offensive
exhibitions of patriotism. Of tho performance Mr. Bancroft says: "I rind
by the Spectator of Feb. 19,1846, thnt
on the 3d of the month,
month, under the patronaso of Captain
Bailliu and the officers of the Morliste,
and before a full and respectable audienco, was performed the comedy of
"Three Weeks After Marriage," followed by " Tlie Deuce Is In Him" nnd
'The Mayor nf Gnrratt.' Tlie scenery was painted by tho crew. Tho
prologue was composed and spoken
by Pettmnn, aud ended with the mot
referred to in tho note,' M»di.to is
our ship,' etc. The young Indies who
took part iu the plays were Miss Allen, Miss Hedgecock, Mies Lloyd nud
MisB Rossi. These were the earliest
pupils of ihe mimic art nn the Northwest coast. At a second performance,
in May, ' Lovo in a Village,' ' The
Meek Doctor' and ' Mnyor of Gnrratt1
were plnyed."
Failed to Convict. — Hibbs, the
former postmaster ut Lewiston, who
accumulated a small fortune by moans
uf forged money orders, has had another trial, and again has the jury
failed to convict. The case was tiled
in tlie United States conrt for the
northern district of Idaho, in Lewis-
ton, before Judgo Norman Buck and
a Lewiston jury. The trial began on
the 14th, and lasted nearly two weeks.
The prosecution was conducted by
Col. Jumes Hawley, United States
district attorney, and his deputy, A.
Qiinckenbiuh. The defence was in
the hands of Frank Gunahi and 1.
N. Maxwell, and a strong and effect
ive tight was made for tho defendant.
The jury hung, ond wero discharged. It is hard to tell whethor
Hibbs will be tried again or not—
