The World'B W.O.T.U. petition,
sent to Ceylon for circulation has
.been translated into tlie .Tamil .Singhalese und signed extensively by
these natives. Sixteen hundred signatures were returned to the headquarters within a few weeks. Many

"Therban ethu sais ertthum," i.e.,
"May the Lord prosper this."
A recent report of the Pasteur
Institute states that out of 2,682
patients who have been treated,
2,261 had been bitten by animals
which were undoubtedly mad, and
that out of these 2,264 only 29 or
1.84 per cent, died. Before the discovery of this method the lowest
death rate for persons affected by
rabies was 16 per cent., and the secretary of the institute claims that
317 persons owe their lives entirely
to Pasteur's discovery.—N. Y. Tn

Some Ontario journals, which
ought to know better, persist in saying that Manitoba is subject to the
monopoly clause which her representatives in parliament accepted in
iter behalf when the Pacifio contract
was before tbe house iu 1881. This
fiction is hard to kill. Be it said
once more, the monopoly clause does
not apply directly or indirectly to
the older portion of Manitoba. If,
as many think, the government
made a secret arrangement with Sir
George Stephens and his associates
to the effect that independent charters in Manitoba should be vetoed,
that would not affect the case of
Manitoba in the slightest.—-Toronto
Mail. And thero is at least one
British Columbia paper (the Van.
couver Herald) that still clings to
the 'Miction" referred to hy the
Mail.
A despatch from Boston, dated
the 25th inst,, says: Professor
Elisha Gray is said to have made a
discovery which promises equally
extraordinary results as thus far obtained from the telephone, No
patent has been issued or applied
tor, but tlie invention is protected
by about thirty-eight different caveats, Meanwhile the inventor' is
engaged in perfecting the general
plan whioh can be best described by
the term auto-telegraphy. It is
claimed it will be possible by this
invention to write upon a sheet of
paper and have an autograph fee
simile of the writing reproduced by
telegraph three hundred miles away
and probably for a much greater
distance. Successful experiments
have been tried for about three hundred miles. It is expected the same
results will be obtained on a much
longer distance. It may be some
time before the invention is perfected, but the inventor has great confidence that a great and practical
rival to the telephone will soon be
introduced.
The Negus Negustiof Abyssinia
has at last obtained a European
backer, if the Paris reports of his
agreement with the French government are correct. According to
these reports, King John is to repress Italy's further advance on tho
Red Sea, and to dispute her right to
places which she now occupies.
France, on her part, contributes
9200,000 to the support of the Jerusalem convent which supplies Coptic
priests for Abyssinia. There is
much doubt whether this story of a
Franco-Abyssinian treaty has any
basis: of fact. It would practically
be a league of alliance against Italy,
and France can hardly undertake to
risk that Already England and
Italy arc closely united in African
policy by the British transfer of the
Mnssowah line to Italy, and France
would hardly be wise to strengthen
that union in her own conflict with
(tout Britain on the question of
Egypt. She might, to be sure, intend an advance in friendly relations with Abyssinia as a warning
to Italy not to go too far in supporting English pretensions in Egypt;
but this is a different matter from a
direct treaty. In reality, Kin;
John disputes Italy's presence out
side of Mnssowah on his own account rather than' us a favor to
France, while French subscriptions
to tho Jerusalem convent could also
be made without a protocol.—N. %

San Fkascisco, June 27.—The following dispatch was received in the
office of Gould nnd Curry, In this city,
this morning: Virginia City, June 29,
9:3(1 a.m.—Lanterns have been lowered to 45 feet below the 1200 level and
were returned still burning. There, is
no smoko coming up the shaft and but
very little gas. The rescue drift is
going ahead all right and we hope to
connect with the 1500 lovel within
the next 20 hours.
PEAKS OF 8UALL-POX.
Sab Fkakcisco, June 27.—Fred
Davis, one of tho trustees of the city
prison is believed to bo Ul with smallpox. The surgeons say they would
not be surprised if there is a visitation
of small-pox in the prison.
THAT BOUNDABV KOAll.
Ottawa, June 27.—The action of
the government of Manitoba on the
proposed Red River railroad is beginning to attract attention. Prominent
MunitobuiiB here now state that the
government will prevent the construction of tho road at all hazards.
THE FATE OF THE JIISE11S.
Viroixia, Nev„ Juno 27.—The excitement over the fatal fire in the
Gould Ss Curry mine has somewhat
abated, but tho probable fate of the
men imprisoned on the 1,500 level, to
accomplish whoso rescue every effort
is being made, according to the opinion of the majority of the miners, is
that there is no hope that they are still
alive. The progress so far made in
driving through a wall of adamantine
rock exceeds anything heretofore recorded in the annals of modern mining. Before to-morrow morning the
fate of tho men will be known. At 0
o'clock this evening the incline boing
sunk to connect with the drift in the
"Best .e% Belcher, whore the men were
imprisoned, was down about 20 feet
below the bottom of tho vertical wing.
About 8 o'clock this morning three
drills will bo sent simultaneously to
break a hole through into tho Best &
Belcher drift. One of these will be
drilled on the same grade us the bottom of the incline, another vertically
below the bottom of the incline,
and the third horizontally, ahead.
Should either of them fail to connect
with the drift in Best & Belcher's incline it will be excavated a few foet
deeper and drills sent in again. It
will not require than one hour to
send the holes in ten feet with Bur-
lingham drills, and it is confidently
anticipated that tho fate of the men
will be decided before midnight If
alive thoy can be communicated with
and food sent in to them through a
drill hole. Tho air sent iu is taken ai
regularly from comjiressor pipes as if
men were inhaling it. No gas could
remain in a drift with such a stream of
fresh air being forced into tho face of
it under such tremendous pressure.
Intense excitoment is manifested as
the hour when the fate of tho imprisoned men will be ascertained draws
near. The entranoe of tho Conutock
& Virginia shaft, through which they
or their dead bodies will be brought to
the surface, is thronged with douse
crowds of people. Relatives aud families of the imprisoned men and telegraph correspondents are tho only
persons allowed in the building, except
employees. When the men are reached
by the rescuing party the news will bo
announced bv blowing of whistles and
ringing of bells.
MOT TO 118 TAXEII.
Pakis, June 27.—The committee
appointed to inquire into the position
of foreigners in France today rejected
the proposal to tax nil foreigners,
after having heard Minister Flmiren.
on the subject.
THE (.'RIMES BILL.
London, Juno 27.—In the commons to-night W. H. Smith, first lord,
of tho treasury, replying. to Johnston,
said no proposal to establish .diplomatic
relations between England and tlie
Vatican has ever boon contemplated,
nor had any .such proposal been made
to or by the government. Smith announced that the government intended
to proceed with the crimes bill uid il
it passed tho report stngc. Robertson
(Liberal) moved that a new clause he
udded to the bill-providing fur the
repeal of tho act by ordor-in-coiincil.
This he said would prevent the house
of lords keeping an act on tho statute
book in defiance of tho house of commons. Balfour, chief secretary for,
Ireland, opposed the clause. Morely
moved that the duration of the act lie
limited to 3 years, lt was the tint
time, he said, any government had the
shameful courage to propose tho per-
Setuation of coercion. Thie was the.
rat govornmont that cast to the winds'
the old fashioned regard for the liberty
of the subject and the dactrino that
exceptional legislation should not last
one day longer than circumstances demanded. Webster, attorney-general,
opposed Morely's motion. GUdatono
urged that the special cliaracter ot **■
bill was a reason for limiting its di
tion.   Its enactment as a normal

Some ylars ago Henry Seybert, a
noted spiritualist of Philadelphia,
presented   the  university of that
city, with {60,000 to found a chair
ot philosophy, tho condition being
jfetJuA' faculty should appoint a
competent  commission  thoroughly
•f» f.mvwtigAte,; spiritualism     The
comuission waa appointed in 1885,
consisting of professors of the university and  other  noted men of
science,  among   whom  was   Dr.
Leidy, one of the most distinguished
of American biologists.   The commissioners have) just made public
thtir   first  report  in  the shape
of a  book  of  160  pages;    and
as there ale a lew spiritualists on
thin coast, the following summary
of the report, given by the Mail,
will be read with much interest.  It
should be said that there were two
spiritualist's   on   the   commission.
They  began  by investigating the
slate-writing phenomena, Dr. Slade
being among the numerous mediums
tested in this branch.   It was found
that 'in' every case the character of
the slate-writing was two-fold, and
the difference between the two styles
quite striking.     In one case the
communication written on the slate
by   the spirits was general in its
tone, legible in its chirography and
usually covered muoh of the surface
of the slate, punoluation being attended to, the i's dotted and the t's
crossed.   In the second, when the
communication was in answer to a
craestion addressed to a Spirit, the
writing was clumsy, rude, scarcely
legible, abrupt in terms and sometimes very vogue iu substance.   In
short, one bore the marks of deliberation and the other of haste. This
difference wa* found to be due to
the different condition* under which
th* communications were written.
Ill* long messages are prepared by
the medium before the seance.   The
short ones, answers  to questions
asked during the seance, are written
under the table  with what skill
practice  can confer.     Dr. Slude's
methods are described with muoh
detail, and the slate-writing whioh
he and all other mediums perform
il attributed and shown to be due to
legerdeniain.     A eminent  professional juggler, not a spiritualist, per
formed  the trick with much more
■kill, than any of the professional or
unprofessional mediums.    In broad
daylight a slate perfectly clean on
both sides wu, with a small fragment of slat* pencil, held under a
leaf of a small ordinary table round
which they were seated; the fingers
of the juggler's right hand pressed
the  date tight against the under
side of the leaf, while the thumb
completed  tht pressure,  and  remained in full view while clasping
the leaf of the table.   Their eyes
never for a fraction of a second lost
sight of that thumb; it never moved;
and yet in a few minuto* tbe slate
was produced, covered on both sides
with writing.   Messages were there,
and still ore there, for the commissioners preserved the slate, written
in French, Spanish, Dutch, Ohinese,
Japanese, Gujerati, and ending with
"Ich bin ein geist undleibemein
lagerbier."   Turning to spirit-rapping the  commissioners say they
have not arrived at positive conclusion.   The difficulty attending the
investigation of this mode of spiritualistic manifestation is increased
by the fact, familiar to physiologists,
that sounds of varying intensity
may be produced in almost any portion of the human-body by voluntary muscular action. To determine
the exact location of thi* muscular
activity is at times a matter of deli
oooy.   What the commissioners can
say, thus far. with assurance is that,
in the caws which have come under
thrii' observation, the theory of the
purely phisiological origin of the
sounds has been sustained by the
fact that the mediums were invariably  and confessedly cognisant of
tht rapping,  whenever  they occurred, and could at once detect any
spurious rapping*, however exact
and  Indistinguishable to all other
tan might be the imitation.   With
regard to spiritual photographs, the
commissioners found it impossible to
induce any of tht professors ol thi*
breach of apirituaUsm to offer them-
stlve* for a test; but they say that
ia the** day* of complete photo-
grephy it is childish to claim a
spntual origin for results which can
be obtained at any time by any tyro
in. thtart,   Tht materialiting me-
d%*M, those which pretend to sum-
qsarAand* and even bodies from the
•find world, were found to be hum-
bugs, tht totalled materialism being
a trick easily performed.   Aninter-
sttiag account is given of the test*
applied to those medium* who un-
dtrtakt i to read sealed letters, etc.,

dwmbuc T. IL PCAIS0K' A cold Winter's night found a stage
load of us gathered about the warm lire
of n tavern barroom In a New England
villnso.' Shortly after we arrived, a
peddler drove up and ordered that his
hurse should be stabled for the night.
After we had eaten supper we repaired
to tbe barroom, and as soon as the ice
was broken the conversation flowed
freely. Several aneodotea had been related and finally the peddler was asked
to give as u story.
He was a short, thickset man, some-
where! about folty years of age, and
gave, evidence of great physical strength.
Ue«r»hU nsnie es Lemuel Vlney, ud
Ua Home, was In Dover, N. H.
r-'Well, gentleman," he commenced,
knocking the ashes from his pipe and
pitting It in his pocket, "suppose I tell
yoi of about the last thing of any con-
sequence tbat happened to me? Vou
sie I am now right, from tha for. West
and on my way noma for Winter quarters.
" It was about two months ago, ont
pleasant evening, that I pulled up at the
door of a small Inn in a small village in
nanoogk. County, ind. I said lt was
pleasant 11 meant 'twas warm, but it
wue cloudy and likely to bo Very dork.
" I went In and culled r.r supper, and
.'.ad my horse taken care of, aud alter
had eaten I fa* dom In the barroom.
It began to rain about eight o'olook,
and for & while it poured down hard, and
lt was yery darkwitdoors.''
"Maw, .1 wanted to be In Jackson
oarly thonett morning, foil I expected a
load ot goods there lor me, whioh I
meant to dispose of on my way home.
"The moon would rise about midnight, and I knew that If lt did not rain
I could, get along very comfortably
through the mud otter that 801 asked
the landlord if he would not seo that my
horse was fed about midnight as I
wished to be off before two.
•• He expressed eomo surprise at this
nnd asked me why I did not stop for
breakfast. I told him that I had sold
my last load about all out, and that a
new load of goods was waiting for me
ot Jackson, and I wanted to be there for
them before the oipresa agent left in tbe
morning.
"There were n number of people about
while I told this, but I took little notice
of them, one man oni* arresting my attention.
" I had In my possession a small paolr-
ageot placards which I wae to deliver
to the sheriff at Jaokson, and they wero
notices tor the detection ot a notorious
robber nomad Dick Hardhead.
" These bills gave 0 description of his
person, and the man before me answered
very well to lt In foot It wae perfect.
Ho woe o toll, Well formed man, rather
slight In frame, ond had the appearance
of a gentleman, save that hie face bore
those hard cruel marks whioh an objeerv-
' Ing man cannot mistake forony thing but
the Index of a villainous disposition.
" When I went up to my chamber I
asked tbe landlord who that man was,
describing the auspicious Individual,
"Hesaid ho did not know him. He
had come there thot afternoon, ond Intended to leave some time during the
next day.
" Tha host osked me why I wished to
know, and I simply told him that the
man's countenance waa familiar, and I
wished to know If I had ever been acquainted with him.
" 1 resolved not to lettbelandlord Into
tho secret, but to hurry on to. Jackson,
and then give Information to the sheriff,
and perhaps he might reaoh Melon before
the villain lift; for I had no doubts with
regard to his Identity.
"Ihad an alarm watch, and having
eut It to give the alarm at one o'clock, I
went to eleep, I was aroused at the
proper time, and Immediately got up and
u.a-seU myself, When I reached tho
yard I found the clouds all passed away,
aud themoonwaaohlnlngbrlghtly. Tho
hostler was costly aroused) and by two
o'clock I woo on the' road.
"The mud was deep snd my horse
could not travel very foot yet It struck
me that the beast made moro work than
there was any need of, forthooart was
nearly empty, my wholeatockconsisting
of about holt a dozen tin pans and a lot
of loose tags.
" However, ea ws wont, and la the
e.nurae ot half an hour I was clear of ths
village, and ot a short distance ahead
1 v a large tract of forest mostly ot
eicat pines. The road- led directly
through this wood, and, so near as I
could remember, the distance was not
far irom twelve miles. She mom wss
In tho, east, and si this load ran Marly
tve-t I should hove light enough.   4
"I had entered the wood and had gone,
perhaps, half a mile, when my wagon
wheola settled, with a bump and a jerk,
into a deep hois, I uttered on exclama-
tlouol astonishment; but that was not
all. Ibeardasolner.exaUunaUon from
uuothsr source,
' "What oould It be I looked qulekly
around bnt oould see nothing, ond yet
I knew that the sound that I heard was
very close to me,
"As the hind wheels earns up.I felt
something besides the Jerk of the hole.
I heard something roll or tumble from
on 0 side to the other of my wagon, nnd I
oould also feel, tho Jar occasioned by ths
movement It was simply a. man In
my cart I  I knew this oh the Instant
"You may have noticed my cart as I
came up this evening. The main port
of lt openo behind, and then Is room
enough within for quite a party, providing they'd stow themselves olooeonougb.
" Of course I felt puzsled. At lost I
wondered If some poor fellow hod not
tikcn thlo method to obtain arldet But
I soon gave this np, for I knew that any
decent man would hove osked me tor a
rids and taken lt comfortably.
" My next Idea was thai somebody
hod got in there to sleep. But this
passed away ae quickly as It came, for
no man would hove broken Into my
cart for that purpose. Andthatthought,
gentlemen, opened my eyes. Whoever
woe lu there hod broken In,
"My next thoughts wen ot Mr. Dlolc
Hardhead. He had heard me say that
my load was all sold out, ond of oourso
ho supposed that I bod soma money with
rue. And in thU he was right, for I had
over *£,0D0, ' >''.
•• I also thought that hsmeant to lean
the cart when be supposed I hod reached
a safe place, and either creep over and
.hoot uie or knock mo down, or perhaps
slip out aud ask for a ride, or something,
ol Unit sort
" All this passed through my mind by
the 1 hue I had got a rod from the hole.
"Now, I never make it 0 point to brag
of myeelr, but yet I have seen 0 great
del el tbe world, ond I am pretty oool
and .clour-Headed under. difficulty. In
a few moments »y resolution was
formed. .      .     .   t
!My hens was now, trje-fcMjr. tht

It Isaslx-barroledone and sure are, I
drew, this aad having twined the reins
about tbo wklpstpok, I carefully slipped
down Into the mud, end as the oart
passed on I went Mblnd It sad exam-

" The door of the oan lets down, and

"Now I had him. My cart was J
almost new, with a stout frumo of white
. oak, and made on purposo for hard
usage, heavy loads nnd servlo 1. 1 did
not boll.'vo Uut any ordinary wan could,
break out.
•"Igotontomycortusnolselo slyasl
got on', nnd then urged my hor^o on,
still keeping my pistol handy. I anew
that at tlio dlstanco or halt a iiillo liir-
ther 1 should come t-» a good hard i-oal,
and 1 ullowed my homo to pick his own
way UiroiiKli tide mud.
"It was about ten minutes after, this
that I heard a, motion iu tho curt, followed by a grinding'iioIbo, us though
some heavy foico wero bolny a| piled to
tliadoi.r. ThiseonUiiuoilbt.mo'hioiuuiiis
and ilii'li eamo a heavy thump, nn tlio'igu,
the 1 olu of a boot wero opplicd to luo
door.
" I sold nothing, but the Idea struck me
that tlio villain might try lo judge about
wliero I 1 at, and nhoot up through the
u>|i nt tlie e'irt at me, so I sat down on
tlio fo itboiirtl.
" 01 uourau 1 knew now that my unex-
peeled passenger was n villain, for he-
must Iiiivo1iu<i:i awake over slnd I started, and nothing else In the world but ab- '
aoliilo villainy would have causal Mm
.1.0 irciualii quiet so Iohjj and then start
up in 1 his pimluiilar place.
"Tlie thumping and pushing grew
louder and louder, aad pretty soon I
hoard a human voice;
'.1 'Let 1110 nut of this!'he cried, and
ho yd.oil pretty loud.
"I-lifted my.head up sons to make
him think that X woe sitting in my usual
place, and then asked him what he was
doing lu thero.
" ' Let mo out and I'll tell yo,' he re-
piled.
" 'Tell mo what you're In there for,' I
said.
' ■ ■• I got in horo to sleep on your rags,"
he itnsworod.
" ' Hoiv'tl ye git in?' I asked.
" 'Lot me got out, or I'll shoot ye
through .ho head,' he yelled.
'• Just at that momont my horse's feet
struck tho hard road, and I knew that
the lost ot the route to Jackson would
bo good got g. Tho distance'^ as twelve
mllos. 1 slipped back upon the foot-
bo..rd and took tho whip.
"1 had tho same horse then I've got
now; 11 tall, stout, powerful bay inure,
and you may boiiovo there's some go in
her. -1 At any rate, she struck a g it ilion
that wen astonished ino. Site had a
good mess of oats, the night air wae
cool, and she folt liko going. In fifteen
minutes wu cleared tha woods, and away
wo wont dt n njclsox pace.
" Tlio chap Insluo kept yelling to be
let out, and - threatening to shoot If I
di In't let him out Finally he stopped,
and iu a few inoiiiouts' came the reports
of a pistol, one, two, three, four, one
right nftcr the other, and I heard the
balls w.iiz over my head..
"It I hud boon on my sent ono of
those bulU, If not two ot them, mu-t
have gone through me.
" 1 popped up my head again and gave
a yell mid thou a deep giouu, and then
Is.ll: •      . .,
"0, save me 1  I'm a dead man I'
" Thou I made a BhuflUng noise as
though I wero falling oil, und finally settled down again on the foot-board.
" 1 now urged up the old mare by glv-
lu. nor du occasional poke with tho butt
of. lie whip, and she went along faster
thr.11 over.
"The man called out to me twice
mare pretty soon after this, .and us lio
got no ropiy he made somo tremendous
endeavors to break the door open, und
as this failed him he made several attempts upon the top. But I hud uo fears
ot bis doing anything there, for the top
ot my cart Is framed tn with dovetails
und e ich sleeper bolted to the posts with
an Iroi bolt. I had lt made bo that I
coul.t carry heavy loads there.
" Uy and by, after all else had failed,
the turnup commenced to holler 'whoa'
lo the horse, and kept It up until he became hoarse.
"All this time I kept perfectly quiet,
holding Uie reins firmly and poking ths
beast with the whip.
" He wasn't an hour la going tbat
dozen miles, not a bit of It.
" I hadn't muoh fear, perhaps I might
tell the truth and say Iliad nono, for I
had n good pistol, ana more than that,
my passenger was safe, yet I did feel
glad when I eamo to the old flour Lurrol
factory that stands at the edge U Jackson Tillage, aad la ten mlnntes mon I
hauled up la front of the tavern ond
found a couple ot men cleaning down
some stags hones.
" 'Well, old teller,' says I,as I got
uown ond went round to the book of the
wagon,' you've had a good ride, haven't
ye?*
" 'Who on yon?' he cried, and his
voice tnmbled a little, too, as fas asked
the question. - ' . «■
"' I am the man you Med to shoot' I
told him.
"'Where am I? Let me out' he
yelled.
v 'Look here,' said I, 'we've come to
a safe stopping place, ond mind ye I've
got a revolver ready for ys the moment
you show yourself.  Now lay quiet.'
"By this tlmo the two hostlers hsd
come to see what was ths matter, and I
explained lt all to them, alter this I
got one ot them to run ond Snd the sheriff, and tell blm what I believed I'd got
tor him.
"The flnt streaks ot daylight wen.
now Just coming up, ond In half an hour
It would bo brood daylight In less than
that lime the sheriff came and two other
men with him.
" I told him tbe whole story In a fsw
words, exhibited the handbills I hod
for him, and then be made for tha cart
He told tlie chap Inside who he was, and
that If ho mode the least resistance he'd
lie a deadman. But mind yon, the sheriff didn't tell him ths suspicions we
, had about him.
" Then I slipped the Iron wrench out
and, as I let ins door down, the fellow
made a spring. I caught him by the
ankle and he earns down on his face, and
In a moment more the offloen hod
him.
" It was now daylight and the moment
I saw the chop I reoognlsed him. He
woo the very man I had suspected, ond
his dno blank clothes wen pretty well
covered with lint ond dirt
"He was marched off to the look-up,
snd I told 1 he sheriff I should remain In
tho town all day.
"After breakfast tho sheriff came down
to the tavern snd told me that I hod
naught the very bird, ond that If *.
would remain until the next morning I
should have the reword of SHOO whioh

had I been when I usually sit, two ot
them would havo hit me somewhere

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(1*E1£ITHIDJ
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1587,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to ho known as tho
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." Tho concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vanoouver. Tho object of
the now company is to continue tho pub*
lication of the Bhitish Coixmbian* newt*
paper and curry on a general printing and
publi&liiiii; concern, controlled entirely by
thot o whose individual Interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. There will be no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full valjio for their money,
Tho Columbian will continue to be en*
tirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered In the pnblto interest.
Tho concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this eity
having been taken over by air. T. R.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It is dosirablo that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for publio patronage on tho ground that It la engaged In
an enterprise calculated to promote tho
public welfare. It asks that the Col*
u m bias bt'judged on its own merits and
supporagfauly so long as its policy is
enconstnttwithits professions. In con*
sequence of this business change aU ae*
oonnts duo the concern must be settled
without delay so that tho books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. . Address all communications and

A Favorable Impression.—Mr. J.
J. Steele, of Dundas, Ont, who is
now visiting Mr. J. L. Stamford, of
this city, 1ms been looking about the
country and is vory favorably impressed with what ho hits seen in British Columbia. Ho expresses himself
particularly pleased with Westminster,
ind thinks its position and prospects
ire suoh as to make it preferable to
Vancouver as a place for residence or
business. Mr. Steele's head is undoubtedly level.

Quick Despatch. — On tho 25th
May Mr. Hugh Boyd loft this city by
the C. P. R. for Ireland. On the 25th
inst. Messrs. Woods, Turner & Gamble
received a letter from Mr. Boyd stating that he had arrived safoly at Londonderry. It will bo seen, therefore,
that Mr. Boyd went from Westminster to Londonderry and his letter
came from Londonderry to Westminster oil within 30 days! This is pretty
quick time, and shows the resources of
the Canadian-British route.
Sabbath School Picnic—It has
been arranged that the annual pic-nic
of the Methodist Church will take
place on Friday next (Dominion Day).
Members of the school, and members
of the families represented in tho
sohool, will be conveyed by steamer to
Pitt Lake, one of the most attractive
place, in the province, where the day
will be spent. The steamer is to leave
the 0. P. N. wharf at 8 a.in. sharp,
■nd will return about 7 p. in. Excursionists aro expected to bring their
baskets, of course.

The Library Lot.—Iu company
with Mayor Dickinson and others this
morning the deputy minister of the
interior visited the free library. Mr.
Dickinson pointed out to Mr. Burgess
that the city had only beon granted
the front half of tho free library lot,
thus leaving the rear half isolated, and
of no posBiblo ubo to anybody. Mr.
Burgess thought it was a groat pity
that the whole lot should not have
been deeded to the city. Ho advised
Mr. Dickinson to apply for a grant of
the rear half and that ho would send
the application to his department, and
do what he could to have the land
granted.

Special for Dominion Day.—Several of our citizens having expressed a
wish to have a special train from Vancouver oh the 1st of July, so that thoy
could return to this city after the celebration, Hr. Fngan, the C.P.B. agent
here, telegraphed to-day to that effect.
A reply was received from Asst Supt.
Downie stating that a special would
leave Vanoouver for Westminster at
20 o'clock (8 p.m.) on the day of the
celebration (Friday). This will be a
great accommodation to persons visiting Vancouver from this city on that
day. We understand that tickets for

Tho following communications wero

From William MoColl, secretary of
of the board of trado, asking the
council to assist in establishing a city
market.
From S. H. Webb, ohief engineer of
the tiro department, stating that the

BY-LAWS.
The by-law for the better observance
of the Sabbath was read a second lime.
Coun. Duncan moved and Coun.
Jaques seconded that the loan by-law
be now read • first time.
Coun. Shiles moved in amendment
and Coun. Elliot seconded that the bylaw be laid over fur six months.
Coun. Elliot said he thought the bylaw should be laid over. It was
passed, yet many of the oldest nnd
heaviest property holders wore not allowed to vote. Tho rnlidty of tho bylaw would be tested.
Coun. Duncan thought the by-law
should now be road a third time If it
was illegal the council could deal with
it aa they saw fit when it came ud for
reconsideration,
Tlio mayor said, much as he favored
tho loan by-law, but he thought that
it had passed under circumstances
which reflected doubt upon its legality.
Many of the oldest and most wealthy
Property owners wero disenfranchised.
Ie thought this would prove fatal to
obtaining the loan.
Tho amendment was lost, while the
original resolution was carried by a
vote of 4 to 3. Oounn. Curtis, Reid,
Jaques and Duncan voting for, and
Couns. Shiles, Elliot nnd Bonson voting against it.
The by-law was then read a third
time.
COUN. ELLIOT WORSTED.
Mr. Goo. Turner then presented Ills
report on the grade of Columbia at.
The report was dlsoussed nnd Couii.
Jaques said the grodo of the sidewalk
on Columbia st,, between Douglass
and Ewen sts, was rather low, and
moved that it bo raised.
He moved and Coun. Reid seconded
that the grado of Columbia st. be
raised from 4 ft. 3. in. lo 4 ft. 10 in.,
ind that Mr. Turner mako an even
grade of Columbia it. from Ewen si.
to Begbie St.
Coun. Elliot said thero were some in
the counoil who are working very hard
in tho interests of their employers.
They had laid tho foundation for i
building rathor above tho grade, and
now sought to raise tho grade Id correspond with their building, Hu
thought tho strcot shoui'. bo loft as it
was.
Coun. Jaques said that he inferred
from Mr. Eliott's remarks that It was
himself referred to. While somo of
the councillors workod in tho interests
of others somo of thorn were continually working for their own interests.
Conn.- Elliot had raised the oentro of
Columbia sf. above the recorded grado
at this point, and he thought the sidewalk should he raised accordingly.
Conn. Reid said Mr. Elliot's remarks
were rather personal. He could
testify that at the time the gravel was
doposited on Colombia st. Coun. Elliot
took good care to havo the greater part
of the gravel placed in front of his own
stable, thus raising the centre of Columbia st. far above its proper height,
lu conclusion Coun. Reid said, " I
have stood ■ good deal from Coun.
Elliot while I've been in the council
and I won't do so aoy longer."
Coun. Elliot—"Well, if you want
to stand anything out of mo you can
havo it right now."
The resolution was then adopted.
The mayor and clerk were authorized to prepare and present an address
to Mr. A. M. Burgess, deputy minister
of the Interior, now in the city.
The Coquitlam proposal was then
taken up.
The Mayor thought the proposal
should, be printed and copies distributed.
Coun. Curtis thought the council
should not go to that expense. For
his part he would never for a moment
entertain a water scheme that asked
the oity to guarantee $0000 a year
interest
Coun. Duncan ssid he thought the
city should not be saddled with such a
burden,
The soheme was then laid on the
table,
Mr. Webb's communication regarding the American hotel waa referred to
the fire committee to report on at next
meeting.
The council decided to accept the
invitation to Vancouver.
Coun. Curtis inquired if all arrears
of taxes had yet been collected. He
said the finance committee wished
every account for taxes put into court
Council then adjourned.
Maladies Miltifly one Another.
A simple fit of digestion may—especially
if the constitution is not naturally vigorous—throw the entire mechanism of the
liver and bowels out of gear. Sick
headache follows, poisoning of the blood
by bile ensues, ana there is grave and
serious disturbance of the entire system.
Check the threatened dangers at the outset with Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable
Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, the medicine that drives every impurity from the
blood.
