Dashing Dragoons.
'J'lie military touriiuirnb just over
at tlio Agricultural liall is one of the
annual show features of London.
This is the eighth exhibition. The
soldiers in the various branches of
the English service have the opportunity hereof showing feats of skill
and daring, and giving the.public
some idea of the value of the special
training schools in the English
army. Judging by the results, the
IKorfrf correspondent reports that
the training they have, as shown in.
the magnificent contests of physical
endurance, the exhibitions of riding,
fencing, and of the practical duties
of a soldier, is of a very high character. The men selected were
strong, wiry, active and 'splendid-
looking young fellows. AU of the
contestants were non-commissioned
officers and troopers. These exhibitions attract large audiences, and
have resulted in great profits to the
originators. The hall is largo and
long, with an arena eight hundred
to a thousand feet in width. It is
in this arena that all of' the feats
take place. The fencing and the
contests between the sword and the
bayonet aro not so interesting as
those which brought feats of riding
into play. One of the first oxhibi
tions of riding was what is
KNOWN AS 1EJION CUTTING.
Two lemons were suspended by a
thread ubout fifteen feet apart and
hung from small wooden stands
about the height of a cavalry rider's
sword-arm. At a signal from the
bugler the rider would come dashing
iu at one end of the arena at full
speed, and as he flew down by tho
lemons he would make a forward cut
at the first thread and a backward
cut at the next one, The distance
between the two is very short and
the speed was tremendous, yet two
or three of the most skilful riders
succeeded in dropping eaoh lemon
by very scientific cuts. This trial
wns followed hy tent-pegging. In
the first place a square peg painted
white was driven well into the
ground, leaving about four inches
standing above. Then various members of the corps of lancers would
charge down at it at fall speed, and
in passing it were required to strike
this peg full with the lance and tear
it from tho ground and carry it clear
to the end of the arena upon tho
point of the lance. In order to constitute a success this was to be done
without for a second checking tho
speed of the horse.
THK TWO HEROES
of this piece of riding wero members
of the Life Guards and of the Tenth
Hussars. The publio here expect
more from a Life Guardsman, and
this particular representative never
failed to carry off the peg. But the
favorite of all was a young fellow
from the Prince's Own. Ho was
round-headed, small-featured, slim-
waisted, with hair the color of pale
mustard, while his eyes were a daredevil grayish-blue. Ho had a little
wisp of a moustache and a neat,
reckless, defiant set-up. Tlioro was
in his manner a combination of
of swagger and graceful effrontery.
Ho would como riding in at the peg
as if there was nothing easier for him
to do. Ho never hurried any of his
movements, although his horse moved like a steam-engine, and he invariably flourished his lance twice,
aud at the very last possible second
would strike the pog clean in centre
At once it would Hy out and go
swinging round his head us he sat
liko a man of steel upon his magnificent, bolting black bay horse.
Of all feats of daring und skill this
rattle-headed young fellow was the
master. Whenever he appeared tho
audience cheered in advance. Tho
most interesting feature of tho exhibit was tho
MUSICAL HIDE
of tho Horse Ouards. Thirty-two
privates of this showy military organization rode in upon thirty-two
black horses. The horses as well as
the men appeared to be all of the
samo sizo and age. I have never
seen such a piece of military machinery as was exhibited in this
series of movements. Tlie band of
horsemen went through their movements without a word of command.
They would first divide aud go
through all the movements of a cotillion, and then circle through the
most complicated n.azos of the most
fanciful of Germans. Tho men and
horses would weave in and weave
out of its various figures without a
word or a motion. The men sat
like statues upon their black horsos
while the band played shrilly, indicating the movements,    The pre
cision and the grace of this drill
made a sight which the audience
cheered again and itgitin. The horses
would change step at tlie change ill
the music. Sometimes 'the evolu
tions were so complicated that if
horses engaged in it hud not all gono
exactly alike, the saute pace and the
same speod, (here would have been
a break and consequent confusion.
One of the - In
WONIIKGHn,   ril'X'KS   nl' IUHI.SKMANHHII'
was ill the drawing of a field cannon
at a hand gallop about tho arena between certain marked places. Air
officer of the artillery would i come
dashing in, followed by a field piece
drawn by six horses. There was an
artillery rider for: each team, with two
men on the caisson.. Karthern.pots
were pluced about at a distance just
wide enough"to"permtt'%he"heavyr
wheels of this great wagon to pass
through without' hitting. The thing,
was to driur this vehicle at the top
speed ond come safely through every
place without: hitting. .The officer,
Who goes ahead, acts as pilot. The
horses aro very large; And powerful,
and as excited as thoso in the fire
service.' Thoy came in plunging and
roaring with- tlie heavy wagon rattling
at thoir heels. It was marvellous to
seo how defty and., skilfully these
clumsy engines were dragged through
various places marked for them, and
only at rare intervals knocking over
tho piece which marked;.the roadway.
1 noticed one feature of the English
troopers' riding, and that' was' that
during aU these dating feats they sat
in their saddles after the fashion of
tlie Wild West cowboys. There, was
no attempt at any timo, not even when
the horses wero trotting, to rise in the
saddle. Some of tho horses were ridden during the' exhibits without saddles. It was a much more interesting
and attractive exhibition of a soldier's
skill than a mere drill,;, The firing of
Catling guns, the bridging of a stream
under fire, tho laying of. a line of rails
for an artillery engine' and its use,
were actual illustrations of the various
features of the Soudan campaign. The
rapidity with which all the field pieces
can be fired and the raurdorous efficacy
uf the improvod Catlings and the
rapidity with whioh soldiers can dis-'
charge their breech-loaders, show that
tho military preparations in Europe
havo now reached such u high state
that a war between any of the great
powers would be of necessity a vory
bloody and a very brief one.

The general belief now is that defective air brakes was the roal cause.
Most of tlioso who talked with engineer Donnelly prior to the crash say
he was sober. One gentleman and
several ladies claim ho acted like a
druuken man. It is agreed, huwevor,
that the wheels of the lucomotive wero
reversed at the rate of ao miles an
hour, and that tho whistle for brakes
was sounded.

no bondsmen, laid aside; O. B. Ackerman, Westminster, S1241, no bondsmen, laid aside; F. Iickman, Chilliwhack, 01200, two bondsmen; P.
McGrath, 81145, two bondsmen;
Bailey & Wittie, 01175, no bondsmen,
but this tender appears not to have
been laid aside. 1 was present'at tho
opening of the tenders, and having
stepped into another room I was followed by one of the committee who
enquired how long I could wait for a
balance of (270, which waa not now
in sight, if I got the contract As
nothing of this kind had been intimated before, I was taken by surprise,
and aaked how long they it anted me
to wait.' The committeeman rapfisd:
"I don't know—until we can get tho
money. ■ Will three mouths titer the
completion of the work do]" He
then retired into the committee room.
Presently the committee came out and
two of them aaked the secretary to
notify Bailey ft Wittie that they had
the contract. I asked why my tender
was not accepted, and wat told that
Bailey & Wittie and the president and
another member of the cammittee had
met .on the previous night when B. A
W. agreed to wait any length of time
for *S00 provided the society gave
them notes bearing interest.    Tho
Eublic wanted a better explanation,
nt none could be had. McGrath,
they admitted, was as good a workman us they desired, and he had responsible bondsmen, and now, when he
had time to think the matter over', he
could wait for the balance just as long
as the other party. WeU, the notifying was postponed until the following
Monday, this all baring occurred on
Saturday. On the day titer Saturday
(to put it mildly) these two members
of the committeo (the third belongs to
Popcum, and is Aot in the clique) met
at church or somewhere olse to consider some other plan to keep the eon-
tract in their hands. On Monday the
president, when uked why I did not
get the contract, replied to the effect
that McGrath wu a Roman Catholic
and "we must keep the. job tmong
ourselves." (I must thank Mr. Reece
for discovering to what church I belong, for during the past 20 years I
could not have answered the question
if uked). The cnranitiee met un
Monday evening, Mr. Knight, .of
Popcum, argued that as they had
ruled out tho two Westminster tenders for lack of bondsmen, they certainly ought to rule out the third.
Messrs. Recce and Brsnehnuwcr
would not agree to thii, and Mr.
Knight then moved that the matter
bo loforred; to. a meeting of. the directors to see if such proceedings would
be sustained. A meeting was arranged
for Saturday tlie 2nd July, at Spim.
Tu the meantime tho thing wks worked
up in this shape; Mr. Reeco offered to
pay tho society the difference between
the two tenders (30); Mr. Wittie offered his plans and specifications free if
he got the jub, otherwise ho would
charge 015; and Mr. Bailey on his
part agreed to point the roof arid give
a subscription towards paying expenses. By the time the meeting caaie
about they had things looking very
well on the. surface, and as it ww a
directors' meeting outsiders could do
nothing but sit and listen: The 2nd
vice-president had the chair, and there
were 'only a few director! present who
were posted in the prooeedingt. The
rest being in favor of tho two committeemen, tlie meeting sustained
their action by a majority of one, and
so the mattor stands. But the 2nd
vice-president and seven other) have
withdrawn from the society as a result
of this manipulation, and entered a
protest against the action of the meeting.—Yours, &c.   r    P. McGHAiH.

Thr««Rli to the Pacific.
A few dayt ago we mentioned in
connection with the Red River Valley Railway that the ultimate object
of the  promoters of that scheme
was an extension to Portage la Prairie, a  connection  there with the
■'rMe;nitoT*-"*-No1rth'weitern1 and an
extension of that road to the Pacific
coast at Fort Simpson.   This would
give the GraritiTrunk, by utilising
the American road from Sault Ste.
Marie, a through line to the Paoifio
and an opportunity of competing in
its  whole  length with its natural
enemy the 0. P. R.    The Colonist
says  it  has   reliable  information
from Montreal to the effect that the
Grand Trunk, in conjunction with
the Allan Steamship Co., will shortly apply to the legislature of British Columbia for a charter to build
a railway through the Ycllowhead
Pass, the Chilcoten country, down
Bute Inlet to the narrows, across to
Vancouver Island there to join the
Esquimau Railway which is to be
extended for the purpose of meeting
it about Comox.   The terminus of
this road, according to the Colonist,
it to be at Esquimalt and not at
Port Simpson.   It is stated that the
company will ask from British Columbia a  belt of land from the'
Rocky Mountains to the coast similar to the belt granted to the Canadian Pacific Railway, and the Colonist  thinks  there is no reason to
doubt that' tlie legislature will treat
the ne* road as liberally as it did
the other.   There may be and probably is a good deal of speculation
in the whole scheme.     Tho Bute
I Inlet route will involve o vast expenditure in construction and operation, and one .may doubt whether,
after nil, the continent has not as
many railways across it as the transcontinental traffic will stand.   It is
more than doubtful, likewise, it the
provincial government will give any
new road such a land bonus as was
given to tbe C. P. R.   That bonus
was given when we had no railway
connection at all, and When almost
half the oountry would have been
given away sooner than that the
province should remain in its isolated condition.    But the circumstances are very different now, and
although every reasonable encouragement should  be given to new
railway enterprises, we must save
our public lands for settlement
'■'•■■■ i > off the Track.
It is, perhaps, unprofitable tb
pursue much farther the disallowance controversy with our friend of
the Vancouver Herald. He has an
unfortunate habit of making light
of tome of the chief points in a
controversy and entirely ignoring
others which it doeB not suit him to
mention. As a proof that there
wu considerable feeling in this district against' disallowance, for example, we pointed to the fact tbat
our federal representative voted
against it. Oar cotemporary, in
hit article of Friday, completely ignores this fact. He also makes
some statements which confirm us
in the opinion that he has not given
to the subject sufficient attention to
enable him to discuss it intelligently; For example, he says: "As regards disallowance, there has not
existed any necessity for agitation
over this question. It was only
last year, we believe, that any move
wat made by the people of Westminster to ascertain the views of
the Dominion government in regard
to its application in British Columbia, It was only at the last session
of the local legislature that a charter was granted to a railway to tho
boundary, but the refusal of the
federal government to ratify it has
not thrown Our cotemporary nor the
people of the royal city into any
great state of excitement." This
extract is not creditable to our co-
temporary's judgment or knowledge.
In 1888 two provincial charters
were granted for railways from
Westminster to the boundary, the
Fraser River Railway and the
Westminster Southern. Both these
charters were disallowed; so that
our cotemporary must see that there
existed cause for agitation before he
wat born, and of which he apparently knows nothing. With respect
to the last sentence of the quotation,
onr cotemporary it apparently under the imprettion that the charter
granted thu year hat been disallowed. Thia ii not the case, as the
federal government hat not pronounced judgment on it at all. We
hav* said more than once that the
Westminster Southern scheme and
the Manitoba scheme stand in a
'' very different relation to the interests ot the eastern provinces and
the 0. P. R., inasmuch at the effect
of oan would not be to take away
trade from either, but to bring
trade, We have every reason to
believe that neither the government
nor the 0. V. R authorities regard
the two scheme* at being similar;
and it our charter it disallowed at
all it will be because the government
dtemt it impolitic to confirm it after
having to thorougly aroused the
people of Manitoba by disallowing
than. Bat, ie.it fair that we thould
tuffer the defeat of a harmless en
terprise that will materially benefit
this part of the province to save
the government from embarrassment

WHAT PHYSICIANS SAY ABOUT THE
STARR KIDNEY PAD.
: i "Treatment by Absorption has for some
time been recognized by Medical Men to
be the most simple and effectual means
of conveying to Diseased Oignns, "Curatives," but in eases of Kidney Disease aud
Complaints attendant thereon, successful
treatment was practicably lm possible until the Introduction of the Starr Kidney
Pad. It costs less than a single prescription and is Immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity of internal
Medicinal dosing. Worn immediately ovor
tbo seat of Disease, its curative properties
become absorbed by the dlseasod nnd enfeebled Organs, continuously nnd directly,
as required to insure In return their healthy action and original vigour. It is comfortable to tbe patient and pleasant In Its
effects, and cures when nothing else can.
!?he Starr Kidney Pad accomplishes posi-
Ivo, decisive results. A more valuable
discovery as a true remedy for Kidney
Diseases was never made.—Medical Gazette

'Care aad Use,
i Of nil misunderstood thing* .ia daily
lito tlio use ol the kerosene lamp probably Btands at the head.
First, a lamp is bought and fitted (oi

aftor a longer or shorter period does not
give as good ft light as tt used to; then
oomo complaint*, to the oilman or
groom about tlie quality of the oil, when

remedy the fault and remoTft the cause
of complaint. . „ .
If persons using t lamp would remem.
Ixw that, the lamp Is n maohlno combining the furnace and pump, and endeavor
to ioarn the prlnotpleof using oil, much
troublo would be saved; lor while no
one expects to uso a large machine
without learning how to Work It, as*
ono can uso a lamp.     .
Now, tho wfekls tho'fUUpto bring
oil from the fount to tho blaze, and, as
thero Is always more or less dust and
dirt In thb oil, tbo wick, soon becomes
clogged up, and cannot pump oil fast
enough for*goodllghtf so* complaint
la made, when a new wick would remove
the cause. ,
Then, as wo burn oil out, Uio Ugliest
part burn?, leaving the heavy oil; and,
as the lamp Is filled day by day, the oil
gets so heavy that tlio draught Is hot
strong enough to pump It up, when tho
oil should be all turned out ol tho lamp
and it refilled with freslKoll A-I■_ y i
And then tho burner, after a time, goto
gummed up, and the even flow of the
oil is disturbed, and causes a smoky,
Uneven light wliichis Vexatious. 11 havo
often had burners brought into my
ators condemned, and a now one wanted,
when by two minutes' work thoy wore

"There Is a great deal people don't

" What about the wood that ts used In
fret-work?"
"Thore are moro kinds than you
) Imagine. First comos white pine, useful particularly for lining tlio bottoms
of linxrrs, otc. Then tlioro Is Spanish
cedar, easily obtained from uigar boxes,
but really only sultod for coarse work.
Butternut, also known as white walnut,
cuts elcun, but is soft and not adapted
for delicate designs. Ited coder und
whito juniper aro botli handsomely
marked, though difficult to cut successfully, bocaiiso thoy are ploky. White
poplar ts vory useful to the fret-sawyer,
as also Is basswood, furnished by tho
llmo tree.
"But tho highly ornamental goods nro
black walnut, whito holly, ebony, mahogany, rosewood and sntinwood.
Besides those thero aro tho tullpwood,
olive, blrd's-oyo maple nnd Hungarian
ash."
" You cut othor material thon wood In
frot-work'r".
y Yes,'.thero aro ivory and tortoise-
shell, for Instance. Tlioro aro two
varieties of elephant Ivory, the Asiatic
and African. The latter Is moro opaquo
and dead whito than tho othor.
" But tho hippopotamus supplies Ivory
whicli Is much harder and far more
valuable than that ot tho elephant,
bolug ot a purer white and almost froo
from gain.
"An Interesting tact about Ivory In
connection with this work is that lt
requires seasoning tho eamo as wood
and Is very liable to crack and warp
whon subjoclod to ahanges of temperature It costs $0 to $8 a pound In tho
rough.
"Tortoiso-shell can be applied to the
same purpose as ivory.
" Mother-of-pearl Is another of those
choice materials that eon bo used by

tho   Columbian  Newapapor and
Printing Concern was  pnrcliascil by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to bo known as tlie
11 British ,■ Columbian     Printing    Co.,
Limited."1  The  concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
tlio  British Columbia   Stationery  and
Printing Company, of New Westminster.
Victoria and Vancouver.   Tho object of
the new company is to continue tlio publication of tlio Bbitish CoitrniiiAK news*
paper and carry ou a ttcneral printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those; whoso individual interest it will bo
to promote tho development, especially
of the Mainland.     Thore  will  be  no
Blackening of the energy'hitherto displayed in the management of tho establishment, and ita patrons may rely upon
receiving full  value  for their inonoy.
The Columbian will continue to bo entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes ns
may ho 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. K.
Pearson, who will continue to earry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
Tt is desirable that a dally  newspaper
should be maintained in this oity, and
the now company asks for publio patronage ou the ground that It is ongaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote tho
public wolfaro.    It asks that the Col-
tiMfiUK bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy is
enconaistt with its professions.    In consequence of this business change all accounts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that tho books of the
formal' company may be adjusted and
closed.   Address :iil communications nnd

Fred Archer Hakes a Break for Liberty.
Fred Archer, who waa convicted in
the Vancouver police court of robbing
tlie Granville Hotol safe- some tiino
ago and was lodged in the jail in this
city to await his trial at the coming
assizes, escaped from tho coal last
night and is now at large. Archer occupied a cell on the second tier in the
cell room. This morning he did not
make his appearance as usual, and one
of the guards was dispatched to wake
him up. The guard returned and stated that Archer was in his bed asleep
and he could not awake him. He was
Bent back a second time and returned
with the startling information that tlie
cell of Archer was unlocked and that
the apparently sleeping figure on tht
couch was a dummy figure, manufactured from old clothing and straw, and
that the prisoner had evidently escaped. A Boarch was immediately instituted, but no traces of Archer could
be discovered. In his cell was found
a. letter addressed to "My Darling
Nettio" at Vancouver. Tlie letter is
quite lengthy and expresses liia impatience and chagrin at being separated
from her so long. Archer's plan of
escape is very simple. During his
leisure hours yesterday he had tampered with the fastenings on the door
in his cell, and loosened tho part of
the latch that holds the cross bar. He
tied a string on the bar and brought it
up through the air hole in tlie coll
door. Fortunately for him tho guard
did not detect either the string or the
damage to the latch, when he closed
his cell last evening. To open his cell
door was then a comparatively easy
matter. He hod simply to put his
weight agaiust the door and the latch
soon gave way. He thou made his
way to the skylight, where he broke
the staple of the trap-door and thon
got out on the roof. It is supposed
he climbed down the cave-trough to
tho ground. Mr. Moresby and his
guards aro scouring tho country in
search of him, but it is vory probable
Archer will succeed in evading them.

The Fraser Mouth.
Capt. Rogers, of the str. Dunsmuir,
has received a letter from Oapt. Lewis,
agent of marine and fisheries, in which
he says: " The next low tide I will
take a trip on the Bithet und get some
soundings. The Douglas will be employed removing and painting buoys
in August." This letter is dated July
12th, and is in answer to a letter from
Oapt Rogers, dated July 7th, calling
attention to the fact that the buoys at
the entrance to the river were much
out of place. It must strike everybody
as somewhat singular that a matter of
ao much importance should be trentcd
with auoh apparent indifference. At
present the buoys are so far from the
channel that a steamer entering cannot safely take them as a guide, and
must go feeling round for deep water.
Thia condition of things Capt. Rogers
reported to the department on the 7th
of July, and instead of taking steps
instantly for the protection of shipping
interests, the agent promises to go up
on the Rithet "the first low tide," and
that " the Douglass will be employed
in removing and painting buoys in
August." In the meantime, from llie
7th of July till no one knows what
time in August, every steamer of any
draught that enters Fraser River must
be at the mercy of the wind aud the
waves. If it happens to to be perfectly calm, the captain may, by taking
careful soundings, manage tu get in
without running aground; but if there
should be a gale blowing, the ohances
are that the vessel would not bo able
to enter ut all. At various times efforts have been made to induce seagoing vessels to como up the river, and
these efforts have sometimes been successful ; but if matters at the mouth aro
to be permitted to run themselves, and
the department is to be allowed a
month to replace the buoys when they
get away from the channel, the government may is well put a boom across
the river month at once and mark it
with a danger signal. It is monstrous
that important interests of the people
of tho mainland should be treated with
such utter negleot. It is time the
people of this eity began to consider
what steps may be taken to obtain redress from inch grievances. Our representative ought to lose no time in
making known the facta at Ottawa,
and he ought to be backed up by the
board of trade, tbe council, and tho
eitisens in demanding instant action.

REPORTS.
The mayor reported that Stewart &

for the new lock-up had been let to

Douglas at,
Ooun. Bonson brought in plans and
specifications for the extension of

The council went into committee on

WATER WORKS.
Mayor Dickinson said it would be
now iu order for any gentleman, representing either the Coquitlam or Mr.
Scoullar's water scheme, to be now
heard.
Mr, A. E. Hill, who was present on
behalf of the Coquitlam scheme, informed the council that this company
had no other proposal than that which
was submitted some time ago aud
which hns already appeared at length
in the Columbian.
Mr. Stamford, who was present, wqb
then asked if Mr. Scoullar and his associates had any further scheme to
bring forward.
Mr. Stamford said they had and
said: The following is our proposition
for waterworks for this city:
1. Tho corporation to take not less
than 25 hydrants at $8 per month per
hydrant for 10 years.
2. The corporation to grant the
right to open streets, alleys and all
public places for the laying and repair*
ing of water pipes,
3. Tho corporation to give a site to
be mentioned for the pumping engine,
house and filtering vats, free of all
taxation.
In consideration of the abovo the
water company agree to supply the
corporation with ull the water necessary tor sprinkling streets and for two
fountains freo of charge, and will not
charge consumers more than $1.25 per
faucet for domestic use, and 50c. per
thousand gallons for manufacturing
purposos.
The water company agree to com*
mence tho work at once and to com*
plete the same within one year from
the passing of the franchise.
The water company agree that tho
corporation shall have the right to purchase at any timo the said wafer works
at a price to be fixed by arbitration.
Mr. Stamford further explained that
the source of supply was none other
than tho noble Fraser. Ue thought
this city was of too limited a population to warrant the construction of any
very expensive system uf water works.
By filtering a water supply could be
obtained from tho Fraser that would
stand all timo and would be free from
contamination. Tho site which thoy
proposed asking the council to grant
thorn was a portion of Front st, opposite Capt. IiiBtey's house. The com*
pany was composed exclusively of
Westminster citizens who would
do their utmost to further the interests
of the city.
Coun. Reid suggested that both
schemes should bo published for the
benefit of the public and that
the council hold a special meeting
some night during the week and deliberate upon the water works question.
Ooun. Curtis said there was no need
for a special meeting,.' For his part
he could not for a moment entertain
either of tho water soheinoB. The
matter needed no discussion, ThoCo-
quitlam asked tho council to guarantee
90000 interest, and Mr. Scoullar and
his associates aaked that the city pay
$2400 annually for hydrants. The
time had not yet arrived when Westminster could afford to pay any such
price for water. If theso wero the
but terms the company could offer he
oould not give his support to either
company.
Coun. Duncan waa of the opinion
that the oity should possess and operate its own water works, but at present he saw no means of arriving at
such an end. The present proposition
of Mr. Scoullar was too expensive.
The oity did not need 25 hydrants, If
Mr. Scoullar would allow the city to
take as few hydrants as they pleased
at first and afterwards increase the
number as tho population and wants
of tho oity increased, there would
then bo somo prospect of the council
accepting their proposition, but at
present it was nousoiiBe to think that
the city could pay $200 a month for
water,
Coun, Reid reiterated the senti
ments of Couns. Duncan and Curtis.
Ho would nover favor a schema that
would saddle tho city with an expense

QRAY.-Iu tills city, on the 17th Inst,, the
wife of .1. H, Gray of a (laughter.
Jas. Shannon, Loaskdale, writes: For
many years my wife was troubled with
chilblains, ami could get no relief until
about two years ago; she was then not
able to walk, and the pain was then so
excruciating that she could not sleep at
night. Your agent was then on his regular trip, and she ashed htm if he could
cure her. He told her Dr. Thomas'
Eclectric Oil was a sure cure. She tried
it, and judge of her astonishment when
in a few days the pain was all allayed
and the foot restored to its natural condition, It is also the best remedy for
burns and bruises I ever used.
Job printing of all, kinds neatly done
at the Columbian office. Prices will be
found as low as at any other office in
the province.—^A dv.
