Scientific
^Hisitiinnij.
The Dioseope.
In no (1t!]i!tvtiiif!iit of scientific discovery Iiiir "tliei'o been morn ratjiil
progress and tlevelopinont thiin in
tlmtpf electricity.   This mostsubtile
and    impalpable    substance   seems
capalde of producing plieiioniena tlie
most woinlevfid and important of alL
nature'fl foix.es.   Tlio  telegraph already spreads its wi'-es liko a net
over tlie entire cirilized world, over
continents nnd under sous, unlil the
flush of its electric spa* k touches the
remotest legions.   But although perfected  to a degree which plnces it
among many much  older discover
ies, it is quite possible  there urn
pven yet g'eat oopor^uiiii-ies awaiting the genius of so.ne tVtunute in-
vesttgiicor, even in telegraphy. Electricity as a motive power has Ions;
been applied in  vmions ways with
success,  and   iis  usefulness  ns   an
agont of  light   and   heat   is well
known.    The telephone has opened
another very 'cu*ions and n)otfGuseful  phase in Lite application of electricity,      lis adoption   lo   vhmoiis
purposes has linen jetnarkahlv rapid
anil  successful; and though its 'dirt-
covoty is very recenti the t^lojdloiio
has already i-eaehed a state of perfection  which is exceedingly credit.
aide to the scientific Icngwletljjq of
tho times.   Oat uf  the  ttileplioiie
grew a nume'Otis crop of minor inventions, some of which are of great
practical utility and hoiiu- extremely
interesting to tlie lover of science.
Tho phonoginnh is one of the most
curious, hut does not seem to have
accomplished   much  practical  good
for its inventors or for humanity.
There  is  no reason to doubt, how
ever, that the phbuogirtpli may yet
fully   meet  thi; expectations of il
inventors, ami when that day arrives
the world will be put in possession
of one of the most wonderful machines known to science.    According
tlie  London   Telvjraph anothor
most   singular discovery  has  been
made iu the application of electrical
mergy.    Souk; Parisian genius lias
nvented what he calls a "dioseo|ie,'
in  instrument  which  serves to ex
end  the vision in a way similar to
hat in which the hearing is extend
d by the telephone.    A simi" muni* is  placed  in  the wall and con
lected   hy e!cc;.tic  wires with sonu
bjecc at a distance aud beyond tho
iingo  of  natural vision.    Th
leans of the dioseope this object is
•fleeted in  the mirror on the wall
ith such distinctness that it may
readily  recognised.     With  thu
'lephone one may sit in one's par-
r and hear distinctly the render*
of a piny or an opera in a (lis-
iiit city. Rut to hear the perforiwv-s
ithoufc seeing'the performance is
it half h loaf.    The dioseope sup
ies the other half, for it is claimed
it  that it will throw upon the
irror in the wall a complete repre-
ntation of every movement which
kes place on tho stage.    With the
lephone and dioseope one mav en-
ttiid appreciate to the fullest ex-
nt any kind of performance, lienr-
cvery sound uttered and seoing
I  tho appointments of the stage
id the movements of tho actors.
-e hope the Frenchman's invention
ly accomplish all that is claimed
r it.    In this part of the world,
mewlint. remote from t)ip cenji'ps
artistic performances, it  would
a pcivilegy indeed if we were
e to connect-our telephono aud
scope   with   San  Francisco, and
oy the 'idvRiitages of   her best
ertainmeiits.     Thero is  nothing
meiical'' in- the picture,    Science
ulready ucoompliahed  such as-
ishii.;*  results that  no one may
li sufutv nut a limit to its future
*■
ievemuiits,
Observers of the sun believe that tlio
maximum of sun-spots in-the "eleven-
year period" will bo roadbed during
tliepresent year, although M. Dupon-
chel thinks it mav be delayed until
1800 m*. 181)2 un account of] planetary
influences.
Among the results of a -jnurney
across tlie Sahara, Dr. Oscar Leu/, report* that no depression below sca-
level could be found. The sehoinefl
entertained for flooding the omen with
water from the sea are thei-eftce hopeless and misleading.
The remarkable discovery has been
made by two (ierninn olifemifits that
the life principle is eapnbleW prodnc-
ing chemical etl'eet upon salts of silver,
-•They lsport tliaC fffffff <Vnto "Calll
readily reduce ftolutions of silver, but
the action oeoses when dead cells are
substituted for the living ones.
By t'>e adoption of preventive measures to guard against expeoted epidemics in cerlaiu English towns, Mr.
Edwin Clmdwick estimates that three-
fourths of a million lives and three
million cases of sickness havo been
saved. Tins seems a somewhat startling statement, but tho figures aro tlio
result of statistical comparisons, and
aro probably correct.
Tho use of i*as ns fuel is suggested
an a means of freeing London from the
fhtolerable smoke with which it is now
afflicted. It is thought tu be not altogether improbable that., with the general adoption of electricity as tt sniU'co
of light and tho employment of gas for
heating purposes, the dream of a
sinokulcss London may be roalixad at
no very distant period.
Pi', VonFritseb, of Hallo, maintains
that thu citiisu of oarrhijiial-os must
exist near flic earth's surface, and
docs not. reach a greater depth than
ten or fourttien mites. They must lie
produced, hu believes, liy the iuero-wo
and decrease of volume of rocks under
the influence of chemical and physical
forces, and bv concussions due to tho
ojipeiiing of fissures in the rucks.
It has lately been noticed that liquors kept in colorless bottles exposed
to the light soon acquire a disagreeable
tnste, nliilc those contained in brown
or green bottles remain unchanged
even if placed in direct tfnlliujlfa The
effect is due to the chemical action of
light, and liquids liablo to ahnilnr
change should bo preserved in red,
orange, yellow or green bottles—those
colors excluding the chemical rays.
Insects are endowed with much
greater muscular energy, hi proportion
to their size, than other- animals. Had
a man of six feet muscular power proportioned to that of a Hea; bo could
leap more than threo hundred feet,
and lift a weight of ten thousand
pounds.     A species of beetle supports
five hundred times its own weight,
and another has been discovered which
is stated, on good authority, to have
gnawed a hole of an inch th diameter
in the side uf an iron canister by tho
power of its jaws..
In 1850 tho Hoang-Ho river, of
China, SinpMed into the Yellow sen;
uo'v this uiotuh is dry and tho river
has a new channel opening to the Gulf
of Pedicle, nearly UOO miles north ef
its former outlet, and the stream
turned aside from its old bed at a distance of more than 300 miles from the
coast, This is the Inst of many clialig-
oh, back aud forth, recorded by tho
Chinese during tho past 11,000 years.
Tho channcs begin in Hoods caused by
rain in the distant Ktteuluu mountains.
Nature's fiat that soon or lute all
men must die, fails to satisfy a vast
number of discontented human creatures who hasten the execution of the
stern decree by prematurely cutting
short their own existence. Dr. Mor-
aelli, of Turin, has given some curious
aud interesting facts and statistic)
concerning suicides, from which it appears time the victims of self-destruction ale rapidly becoming more numerous in nearly all civilized eounlni-s.
In France, for instance, during the
quarter-century from 1327 to 185° the
annual number of suicides gradually
increased from forty-eight to nearly
eighty-three per million uf inhabitants,
and thu number in later years is stated
to be 100 per million. Vim causes
which Und to suicide are of courso
various—climate, religion and family
relations being conditions which exert
a marked influence. Dr. Morsclli
finds that during the change from cold
to heat in spring suicides are moro
nuniernus than at other seasons. Very
curiously, suicides are moro frequent
everywhere during the tirat third of
any mon*h than iu tho (tr;*ntid, and
during tho second third than in tho
last. Protestants are far more in-
cliuod to self-dostruction than Catholics; men, than woman; til married,
than married; the young, than the old,
Suimdes are moat frequent among
brain - workers, such as professional
men; soldiers ranking next, Drowning and hanging are most often the
means employed by suicides.

The Judges and the Attorney
General.
Evan tii« most ultra opponent of
the Walkum administration cannot
contemplate the humiliating scene
recently presented before tbo Supremo Court of this Province without sorrow, Day after day tho
attorney -genera] pleaded und
"saucfiil" mid sulked before the threo
Judges in ti uiost extraordinary
effort to main tain the constitutionality of Ins motlay jumble of bud
laws; and after all not only do the
J uchj**» unanimously decide that these
laws are bad and must go by the
board, but they add that the attorney-general's windy pleadings "had
no effect on the Court other than to
strengthen the conclusions they hud
coine to." Thus, as we anticipated,
the Judicial Districts Act, the Better Administration of Justice Act,
and the Local Administration of
Justice Act are all, by one fell
swoop, consigned to the limbo where
two-thirds of Walkem legislation
goes. Of these acts Mr. Justice
Gray, in his most able and lucid
decision, aptly said that "they were
calculated to aid rather in the non-
administration than in the administration of justice." And yet these
are the very laws in respect of
which Mr. Walkem'a friends and
supporters especially claimed credit.
To thinking minds it cannot but he
reassuring to know that the Judges
are not under the control of the
provincial government. It has been
seen how, if they were, the ermine
would be liable to be trailed through
the dirt of provincial politics; for
it is no secret that the unseemly
war waged against the Judges during these years, and wliich bus cost
the country so much, arose from the
refusal of these Judges to become
an instrument of political revenge
in the hands of n vindictive attorney-general. He swore he would
make things hot for them. He bus
been hoist on his own petard. But
while desirous of seeing the Judges
subject only to the higher power, one
cannot help feeling that that power
should he exercised in tlie interests
of the people. The Judges descanted eloquently upon tho attempt
which had been made to reduce
them to the status of "servants,
nay, well nigh slaves" of the provincial government, by the assumption of the right on the part of that
government not only to dietato to
them when they shall hold court,
but Where they shall live; and we
are with them in so far as that is
concerned. But has it not occurred
to thein that there is also a people's
side to this question 1 They appear
to have made up their minds tliat
they miiBt not and shall not be disturbed in tho enjoyment of their
comfortable quarters nt the capital,
and having done so, they endeavor
to make it appear to be necessary in
the interests of justice that they
should be all huddled together in
one small community at the extreme
of the Province, while all or nearly
all the rest is neglected or next to
neglected. Without any disrespect
to the Bench, we ask, are the interests Of the people to continue to be
secondary and subordinate to the
personal convenience and preferences
of the Judges? While thankful
that the Judges cannot be placed
under the thnmb-Ecrew of provincial
politics, we feel bound to point out
the necessity that exists for the intervention of the higher power to
which they are amenable, iu order
that the people's interests may leceive
due consideration.
Editorial Notes.
On the 30th ult. Mr. James Lighten, the mail contractor nnd carrier
between Cache Creek and Okanngon,
in crossing the Thompson river nn the
ice at Savona's, broke through and
very narrowly escaped drowning.
Time and again has the attention of
the government been directed to the
necessity of bridging the Thompson at
that point. Several years ago, almost
unasked, they bridged it at the mouth,
at an expense whieh would have far
more than sufficed to bridge it at
Savona's, notwithstanding that the
traffic on a bridge at the latter place
would be at least twenty times greater
than at the former. As railway development progresses  the  traffic nt
Savona's must greatly increase, and it
is to be hoped one of thu very first
acts of the now admin is t ration will be
to havo a bridge constructed at tho
point rofcrrred to.
For some months past the peojfle of
tins district have been mado to experience in no ordinary degree tho inconvenience and loss arising out of the
absentee Judgo system. Timo and
again has the sitting of tbo County
Court been put oil, some times to the
serious inconveniuiico of suitors—in
one instance consequent {ally culminating in lamentable loss of lifo, Upon
tho last occasion, settlors in tho more
remote localities having business with
the Court came all the way bore to
learn that there had been another postponement. In ihe case of somo a hard
two days' journey was involved, to say
nothing about expense. It is no secret
that tho Judges do not take at all
kindly to bounty Court work. They
think it infra dig. Well, wo suppose
they havo a right to think ns they
please; but have they a right to net ns
they pleaso 7 Most persons must be
convinced by this timo that little has
been gained by I ho .change iu the judiciary system, und Unit thero must bo n
speedy end put io tho present extremely unsatisfactory condition of
till'airs.

dragging the unfortunate settlers down
on the fatal occasion. Most thinking
persons will probably be inclined to be-
liove that the responsibility should be
shared by all three. But there is this
to be said for the Judges, that the
bungling of the Attorney-General was
the immediate cause of the County
Court having been postponed till the
fatal week; so that the Government is
in a doublo sense responsible.
Mr. Homer's Programme.
Proceeding to Ladner'a Landing this
morning, Mr. Homer will address tho
Electors of that precinct fit Treuant
school house at I p.m. to-day. On
Monday at 2 p m. he will address the
Electors of Mud Bay Polling Division,
at the Town Hall. Returning hero on
Tuesday, he will proceed to Ohea'm on
Wednesday, and will hold meetings
there and at all the -cttlemonts on the
way down. After completing that part
of the programme, ho will visit tho
North Arm settlements aud the various
communities on Burrard Inlet. Due
notice, by poster, will lie given of each
meeting. _
"wiiiit is it"?
Mr McLennan cannot possibly hope
to get elected. Even his own personal
friends admit that ho cannot beat Mr.
Homer. Indeed many think it is just
a little hit cheeky for a resident of another District to come into this Unasked aud force a needless contest upon it
under circumstances which make a
contest equivalent to disfranchisement.
Why does he persist iu so unpatriotic a
course I There must be some hidden
object. Is it true, as stated at the
hustings, that he is dancing to Victoria
wire-pullers, whose aim is simply to
disfranchise New Westminster, so that
they may tho more effectually cireum-
veut such measure) as the extension of
tho ocean mail service to this port?
The thing certainly has an ugly look
about it.
Running AwA.v.—At the nomination Mr. Homer's Agent stated that he
had, hy request of his principal, invited Mr. McLennan to meet Mr.
Homer at the hustings, in order that
they might both explain their position
before ihe electors, and also that Mr.
Homer would be happy to meet him at
tlie various gatherings throughout tho
District. To this very fair proposition
Mr. McLennan made some flippant and
silly answer, offering to "throw tlio
dips" to decide which of thorn should
represent tho District. Instead of
meeting the electors squarely along
with Mr. Homer, so as to afford them
a fair opportunity of judging and
choosing between tho two, Mr. McLennan bolted oil' to Yale. This is
scarcely the way electors have a right
to expoL't to he treated.
Coming Round,
Through tho pressure of public
opinion, it may be presumed, the local
organ is coining round to follow in the
wake of this journal ou one public
question after another. The other
week it flopped round to tho popular
sido of tho steam ferry question, after
bitterly opposing and ridiculing it for
fifteen months, Now it comes floundering over to our side of the public
market question—in reality an adjunct
of the other. But its selection of a
.site for the market is making people
htngh. Next week we hope to find it
confessing its error in -promoting the
disfranchisement of this District by
encouraging the present contest. And
tho week after it may possibly announce that it has discovered its at-
[ tempts to justify tho Walkem administration to be like "trying to make
water run up htU."

Look: At it Tuts Way.—Ad.uu-inj,
for tho sake of argument, that Mr
McLennan were certain uf beating Mr.
Homer, tho very fact of a contest at
all would render it simply impossible
for him to leach Ottawa iu time for
tho present session, aud it is now
morally certain that this will bo the
last, session of the present parliament.
What, then, can bo the motive for persisting in running? Ho can bo the
means of disfranchising the District.
That and nothing more. That and
nothing less. Tn disfranchise Now
Westminster at this critical juncture,
whon there are matters of such vital
interest requiring a representative at
Ottawa, will, indeed, bo a patriotic
work, one for whieh Mr. McLennan
aud his hackers will certainly deserve
well at tho hands of the electors.
Ciu'iutY Creek.—Ten enterprising
gentlemen formed a syndicate for tho
purposo of developing tlm gold mines
on this creek. Tho surface diggings
had buen paying wages iu light gold;
but it was believed that if the bedrock wero reached heavier gold in
greater quantity might be found; and
tho rims of tho bed-rock in what presented tho appearance nf the original
channel were distinctly traceable.
Moreover, in sinking to,a lower stratum than that which the minors had
been content to work, a coarser gold
waa found, thus leading to tho natural
conclusion that courser still would be
mot with on the bed-rock. Those on-
gaged in this commendable enterprise
foci vory hopeful of seeing good diggings opened next season, with plenty
of scope for a good mining camp, We
sincerely hope thoir expectations may
be fully realized.
Terrible Responsibility.
Who is responsible for the terrible
drowning accident which happened
here a few weeks ago? Somo say the
Government, for refusing to take stops
for the establishment, of an efficient
ferry; and there can bo no doubt that
had such n ferry been established the
accident would never have occurred.
One of thu sponkurs at the hustings on
Thursday hud the responsibility at the
door of tho judiciary, arguing that if
the County Court had mot when it
should, the accident would not
have occurred. Others again would
place tho responsibility upon the
shoulders of those litigious persons who
havo been keeping tho settlements in
a turmoil and who were the moans of
The Two Candidates*
Amongst tho earliest pioneers of this
District, Mr. Homer took a front position from the vory first iu all public
enterprises nml political reforms. As
President of tho Reform Convention
of 1800, as tho first member for tho
District in tho first legislature, he did
tho state much service, and he proved
himself to bo possessed uf sterling
honesty, unflinching honor, and good
abilities—a man whoso opinions would
be listened to and carry weight in any
council. Since those old-time days of
active public usefulness he has done
nothing to forfeit or weaken the confidence of tho public, but, ou the contrary, it hns been mat .red and crys-
tilized. But it occurs to us to ask,
In what do Mr. McLunnau's claims
upon the constituency consist'! Will
his organ enlighten tho electors on
that point?
ft
The Nomination.
The nomination for the federal
election new in progress ill this Dis-
trict took place at the Court House on
Thursday. From 12 till 2 tho Returning Officer remained at his post, and
at tho expiration of that timo, ho announced having received two nominations, that of Mr. J. A. R. Homer,
of New Westminster, and Mr. John
McLennan, of Yale. A poll being
demanded, the Returning Officer announced that a poll would bo held in
ouch of tho Divisions ou Thursday tho
0th March. This concluded the formal proceedings, and the Koturuing
Officer retired.
The electors present (of whom there
woro a large number) voted Mayor Mclnnes to the Chair, and a call having
been made for Mr. Homer, that iromtlo-
inan proceeded briefly to stato his
views upon tho principal issues demanding attention. Mr, Homer spoke
substantially us follows:—
Iu supporting the present Government, I believe we are supporting a
government which is doing all that
Res iu their power to promote the interests of British Columbia, and those
interests are being promoted by thu
construction of tho C. P. Railway, in
which both the Government and Syndicate are showing an unusual amount
of energy which ensures a speedy and
early completion of the road.
Objections havo been mado to the
increase of Customs duties, which took
place when the present Government
came into power, but when wo consider those duties were increased at a
time when thero was a deficit in the
revenue, nnd partly for the purposo of
assisting to to build the railway, I do
not think we havo much reason to
complain, for the benefits we have already derived from railway construction far exceed any supposed injury
we may have sustained from au increase of taxes, more particularly tho
agricultural industry, for previous to
railway construction every farmer
knows the difficulty ho hud to contend
with iu disposing of his produce, while
now he has a ready market for every*
thing ho possibly can raise. If his
taxes were lighter then than now he
found it much more difficult to pay
them.
The revenue policy of the Government has been so very successful tliat
they now have a large surplus, which
will enable them to reduce the taxes,
and I see by the recent speeches of
some of tho Cabinet Ministers they
intend to do so at the present session
of parliament; and if the country continues to prosper, and from present
appearances it will for a long timo to
come, they will be enabled to make
further reductions and equalize thein
for tho best interests of the country.
The loss which the Province has
sustained liy the government, lands
being held in reserve for such n long
time has boon a very serious one.
Whether the Local Government is
principally to blame in the mutter, or
both the Dominion and Local Government, I ain not sufficiently informed
to say, but will use iny utmost endeavor to have tlie reserve removed aud
the land thrown open for settlement
at as early a date as possible.
I think you will all agree with me
in the necessity of having the ocean
mail service extended to tho mainland.
The numerous delays which thu mainland mail is sulijeot to under thu present arrangement is not only injurious
to the commercial interests of tlie
country, but a groat ainvyaiiee to all
branches of business, pa. ticularly to
those in connection with the railway.
When the Washington Treaty was
negotiated, British Columbia was not
a member of the Confederation, and
upon those grounds the Unitod States
claim that British Columbia has no
right to the privileges enjoyed by tho
eastern provinces under that treaty.
When British Columbia entered the
Confederation, we supposed she was
to enjoy all tho rights and privileges
which the eastern provinces wero entitled to. If the Dominion Government cannot protect us iu those rights,
I think we are fairly entitled to compensation, and I think the easiest and
most satisfactory way will bo to allow
drawbacks of Customs duties' on all
material required for tho fisheries, and
an appropriation for the establishing
of hatcheries, thereby preserving the
salmon fisheries and fostering a branch
of industry which is liktily to become
one, if not the most important branches
of industry in the province. After
allowing a drawback ou tho material
required for the fisheries, there would
yot remain a great quantity of goods
indirectly consumed by this brtinoh of
business from which the Government
would derive a largo amount of revenue,
and for this reason as well as others
the Government should render every
assistance and protection possible to
this important industry.
As foreign nations are inclining more
and more to surround ihemsulvos with
protection walls, it may become necessary for Great Britain and her colonies
to form a commercial federation, for
their mutual benefit and protection.
A federation of three hundred million
people, with tho varied and enormous
resources which they possess, with a
uniform tariff for revenue purposes
and differential duties on foreign goods,
I believe would very materially increase the prosperity of the whole
empire. . This is a very important
question, the details of which would
require a very careful consideration,
and should ft* be brought beforo tlie
Commons I will give it my support.
At the same time I would favor reciprocity with other nations to that
extent which would be conducive to
tho interests of the confederation,
Thu improvement of the navigation
of tho Fraser river, both above and
below New Westminster, will receive
my attention.
Tho judiciary will occupy a portion
of iny time, particularly those points
which affect tho interests of this District.
Mr. Homer's remarks were repeatedly applauded.
Mr. McLennan having been repeatedly called for and failing to put in an
appearance, a call was made for his
friends, if any such were present.
After somo delay, his agent {Mr. Neil
McLennan) stated that ho was out of
town.
Mr. J. C. Armstrong having been
called for, made a few forcible remarks. He pointed out very plainly
that a contest, under present circumstances, meant disfranchisement of
the District, as it would not be possible for whoever was electod to reach
Ottawa in time for the present session,
He said Mr. Robson was first in the
field, but upon that gentleman learning tlmt Mr. Homer would run, he
was patriotic enough to retire, saying
that as it was essential to avoid a con-
tost iu order to have New Westminster represented this session, Mr.
Homer should be elected by acclamation. Ho (Mr. Armstrong) then proceeded to contrast the conduct of Mr.
McLennan with that of Mr. Robson,
in coming forward and disfranchising
the District by forcing a contest upon
it, and stated nis conviction that Mr.
McLennan was allowing himself to be
used as a tool in the hands of the
enemies of Now Westminster for the
express purposo of disfranchising it at
a time when it was of vital importance
it should be represented. His remarks
wore applauded.
Mr. W. J. Armstrong, M. P. P.,
who had been called for, deprecated
iu the strongest language tho conduct
of Air. McLennan iu tuns forcing on
a content, the only result of which
would be the practical disfranchisement of the District. He then, by
request, drifted into provincial politics.
He said tho Mainland ought to oppose
tho appropriation of any part of tlie
provincial revenue towards building
tho Island railway. Ho would not
have objected to giving tho Syndicate
all the public lands on Vancouver
Island, provided these lands remained
subject to taxation; but ho would
strenuously oppose any arrangement
which deprived the province of the
right of taxation, inasmuch as these
coal lauds were really the only revenue
basis tho Island possessed. Referring
to tho subject of a resident Judge, he
spoke very strongly in condemnation
of tho present extremely unsatisfactory state of affairs, and said that tho
Judges should certainly be under somo
control. Ho was in favm of tho establishment of a steam ferry at this
city, and thought New Westminster
wes entitled tu a good, largo, two-
story school-house Regarding the
Graving Dock, he was disposed to bo
rather non-committal, saying that he
would first have to ascertain exactly
how matters stood.
This concluded the proceedings, and
the people dispersed.

(Cprrnpotirtenceof tho JiHii-li Ci'liimbhn.)
The card of thanks published in
your journal does not fully express
thu appreciation which the people here
feel uf tho kindness aud sympathy
shown by your citizens in connection
with the late distressing accident. It
was a great satisfaction to both the
relatives of Messrs. Lewis and Gillanders and the communities in wliich
they lived tu know that the bodies had
been so promptly recovered and had
been cared for with such tender solicitude by your citizens. It is only proper that tlie people of New Westminster should know how highly tlieir
kind offices were appreciated, and that
thu re m em bra nee of thein will not
soon bo forgotten. The funerals of
both wero largely attended by the
settlers, indeed there has never been
so general an expression of intense sorrow and sympathy as that which this
occurrence has evoked. Tho religious
services last Sabbath, afforded further
evidence of the same fact. Additional
seats had been arranged in the new
School-ho use at Chilliwhack for tho
accommodation of the large number
who wore expected, so that every avail
able space might ho occupied. The
room had been draped in black by
sympathetic hands, music appropriate
to the solemn occasion had been prepared, and an organ procured, at
which Mrs. Henderson of Chilliwhack
presided with groat efficiency. Half
an hour before service began the room
was crowded to its utmost capacity.
The services wero conducted by Rev.
Joseph Hall, B. A., aud tho service
was very impressive and calculated to
afford consolation to those who mourned the loss of a Christian brother. It
js computed that there must have been
250 present, thu largest assemblage
over known in the history of the set*
Moment.

From Somas.
(dorristiiiu'teiico of the RrltMi OnlnmWan.)
This and the adjoining settlement
of Chilliwhack never before experienced such sore bereavement as that
caused by the death of Thos. Lewis
and William L. Gillanders. Tho sad
news came like a terrible shock to
every one uf us, and the deepest sympathy for the bereaved families was
expressed on all hands—moro particularly as theso two much respected
settlers had, through no fault of theirs,
hoen dragged away from tho bosom of
their families by others jangling in
law in which they had no part. The
feeling universally prevailing now ia
that too much sacrifice has already
been made and this ruinous litigation
must be put an end to iu somo way.
From every one tho expression is that
of praise to those of your citizens who
acted so kindly and energetically in
recovering the bodies, and to your
whole community for the feeling of
respect and sympathy evinced on tho
occasion,
Tno friends of tho deceased parties
who went down to your city returned
hero on Monday last. The remains uf
Mr. Lewis were buried on the following day at the new cemetery,, and
those of Mr. Gillanders un Wednesday
at the "Shannon Mountain." The
procession at both was large indeed,
considering the inclemency of the
weather. At that of Mr. Gillanders
there wore twenty-five teams und
twenty-seven ou horseback. It is
earnestly to be hoped the community
will not bo again visited with a. like
season or succession of melancholy
occurrences. Never before has
death made such dire havoc in these
settlements as since tho advent of the
new year. Five havo already been
buried in as many weeks, and I am
sorry to announce the death, this
morning, of the beloved wife of Mr.
James Monro, of Chilliwhack. She
died of consumption, and leaves a
sorrowing husband and one child.
The Chilliwhack Agricultural Society
lield its annual meeting last mouth.
Mr. A, C. Wells was elected President,
Mr. D. McGillivray Secretary, Mr,
G. R, Ashwell Treasurer, nnd a large
Beard of Directors, composed of fanners in the District, was constituted. A
special committee was appointed, consisting of the President, and Messrs.
G. W. Chadsey, G. R. Ashwell, J.
Recce, I. Kipp, and R. Nowell, for
the purposo of selecting a piece of
ground for the use of the Society and
to devise some moans towards tho
erection of au Agricultural Hall aud
other buildings for holding their annual exhibitions iu. It is thought to
be high time that a move in this direction wore mado, and, with the now
interest created, it is expected that the
exhibition this year will bo fur in advance of all previous efforts of tbo
kind.
I am happy to inform you that
stock of all kinds is wintering remarkably well, aud the farmers have abundance of feed oil hand.

GEXTI.EMEX—
I have much pleasure in acceding to
your request conveyed to me in your
requisition, that I would allow myself
to be nominated as a Candidate, at
the ensuing election of a Representative to fill the scat now vacant In the
House of Commons. If I should be
elected to till this honorable position,
I will give my support to the present
Government, and in doing so, will
trust that mv future course of action
mav meet with the approval of my
constituents, as It did on former occa»
sions when i had the honor of repre-
sentlng you in the Legislative Council
of this Cplonr. If elected, I will advocate Ihe early completion of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
I will urge upon the Government
Ihe necessity of placing the Dominion
Lands, now'held in reserve, in a posi-
lion so they may be made available
foi immediate settlement.
I will endeavor to show the Government the benefit which would be derived from the extension of the Ocean
Mail Service to the Mainland, and to
obtaining greater mail facilities
throughout the Province.
As llritlsh Columbia has not been
admitted to the benefits of the Washington Treaty, I will urge upon the
Government the justice of allowing an
abatement of Customs duties upon all
material required for the Fisheries,
and will ask for an appropriation for
the establishing of Hatcheries.
The Agricultural, Manufacturing,
and Mining interests will receive my
most careful attention, and if the formation of a Commercial Federation of
Great Hritaln and her Colonies, for
their mutual benefit, should come
under consideration, It will receive
my earnest support.
Owing to the transitory state of the
Dominion, many new questions will
undoubtedly arise: in dealing with
these, I will see that the interests of
my constituents are protected.
I am. Gentlemen,
Your Obedient Servant,
JasS J, A. R. HOMER. (Dur r§torj*.
WHAT THE SHEPHERD SAW
A Talc of Four Moonlight Nights.
(Continued.)
About half-past eleven he seemed to
give up expecting her. He then went
a second timo to the hollow behind
the trilithon, remaining there nearly
a quarter of an hour. From this plitce
he proceeded quickly over a shoulder
of tho declivity, a little to the left,
preseutly returning on horseback,
which proved that his horse hud been
tethered in some secret place down
there.) ,* Grossing anew tho down between thb hut and the trilithnn, and
scanning the precincts ns if to finally
assure himself that she hud not come
in, he rode slowly duwn in tin.' direction of Verncnmbo Towers.
The juvenile, shepherd thought of
what Ifiy in tho hollow yonder* and
no fear of the crook stem of his superior officer was potent enough to
detain hiin longer in that hill alone.
Any live company, oven the most terrible, was better than the company of
the (lend; so, running with the speed
of u hare in th* direction pursued hy
tlm horseman, ho overtook the revengeful duke at the second descent (where
the Ringdom road crossed before you
came to the old entrance on that sido
—now closed up aud the lodge cleared
away, though at the time it was wondered why, being considered the most
convenient gate of all.
Once within the sound of the horse's
footsteps, Bill Wills felt comparatively
comfortable; for, though in awe of the
duke because of his position, he had
no moral repugnance to his companionship on account of tho grisly deed
he had committed, considering that
powerful nobleman to have a right to
do what he chose on his own lands.
The duke rode steadily on beneath his
ancestral trees, tho hoofs of his horse
sending up a smart sound now that
he had reached the hard road of tho
drive, and soon drew near the front
door of his house, surmounted by parapets with square-cut battlements that
cast a notched shade upon the gravelled terrace. These outlines were quite
familiar to little Bill Will's, though
nothing within their boundary had ever
been seen by him.
When the rider approached the
mansion a small turret door was quickly
opened, and a woman came out. As
soon as she saw the horseman's outlines she ran forward into tho moonlight to meet him.
"Ah, dear—and nre you come ?" sho
said. "I' heard Hero's tread just
when you rode over the hill, aud I
knew in a moment.    I would have
come further if I had been aware "
"Glad to seo mo, eh?"
"How can you ask that?"
"Well; it is a lovely night for meetings."
"Yes, it is a lovely night."
The duke dismounted and stood by
her  side.     "Why should you have
been listening at this time of night,
and yet not expecting me.'/" he risked.
"Why, indeed!   There is astraugo
story attached to that, which I must
tell you at once.   But why did you
come a night sooner than you said you
would come?   I am rather sorry—I
really am!" (shaking her head playfully); for as a surprise to you I had
ordered a bonfiro to be built, which
was to be lighted on your arrival tomorrow; and now it is wasted.   You
can   see   the outline of  it just out
there."
The dulto looked across to a spot of
rising glade, and saw the fagots in a
heap. He then bent his eyes with a
blank and puzzled air cm the ground.
"What is this strange story you havo
to tell mo, that kept you awake I" he
murmured.
"It is this—and it ia really rather
serious. 'My cousin, Fred Pentrjdge
—Captain Pentridge as ho is now—
was in his boyhood a great admirer of
mine, as I think I have told, though J
was six years his senior. In strict
truth ho was absurdly fond of mo."
"You have nevor told mo of that
before."
"Then it was ynu siater I told—yes,
it was. Well, you know I have not
seen him for many years, and naturally
I had quite forgotten his admiraiion
of me iu old times. But guess my
surpriao when the day before yesterday I received' a mysterious note bearing no address, and found on opening
it that it came from him. Tho contents frightened me out of my wits.
He had returned from Canada to his
father's house, and had conjured mo
by all he could think of to meet him
at onco. But I think I can repent tho
exact words, though I will show it to
you when we got indoors. 'My dear
cousin Harriet,' the note said: 'After
this long absence you will be surprised
at my sudden reappearance, aud more
by what I am going to ask. But if
iny life And future are of any concern
to you at all, I beg that you will grant
iny request. Wlu,t I require ot you
ii, dear -Harriet, that you meet me
about eleven to-night by tho Druid
stones on Vorucombo Down, about a
mile from your house. I cannot Bay
more, except to entreat you to come,
I will explain all when you are there.
The one'thing is, 1 want to see you.
Come alone. Believe mo, I would nut
ask this if my happiness did not hang
upon it—Ond Ttnows how entirely! I
nm too agitated to say more,— Yours,
Fbkp.' That was* all of it. Nov;, of
course, I ought not to havo gone, ns
it turned out; but that I did not think
of then. f I remembered his impetuous temper, and feared that something
grievous was impending over his head,
while he had not a friend in thu world
to help him, or any one except myself
to whom he would care to make his
trouble known. So I wrapped myself
up and went to Verneombo Down at
the timo*1 he had named. Don't you
think I Wits courageous f"
"Very.1,:
"When"1 got thoro—but shall wo
not walk on; it is getting cold V The
duke, ho Waver, did not move, "When
I got thoro he came; of courso as a
full-grown, inau and officer, and not as
the lad that I had known him. When
I saw him I was sorry I had come. I
can Hardly tell you how ho behaved.
What lie . wanted I don't oven know
now; it seemed to be no jmoro than
the mere meeting with mc. He held
mo by the hand—oh, so tight—and
would not) lot. mo go till T had prom
ised to meet him again. His manner
was so strange and passionate that I
was afraid of him in such a lonely
place, and T promised to come. Then
I escaped—then I ran home—and
that's all. When the timo drew on
this evening for tho appointment—
which, of course, I never intended to
keep—I felt uneasy, lest when he
found I meant to disappoint him he
would come on to the house; and that's
why I could not Bleep. But you are
so silent!"
"I have had a long journey."
"Then let us go into tlie house.
Why did you come aluno und unattended like this V"
"It was my humor."
After a moment's silence, during
whicli they moved on, she said, "I
havo thought of something which I
hardly liko to suggest to you. He
said that if I failed to come to-night
ho would wait again to-morrow night.
Now, shall wo to-morrow night go to
the hill together--just to seo if he is
there; and if lip is, rend him a lesson
on his foolishness in nourishing this
old passion, and Bonding for me so
oddly, instead of coming to the
house ?"
"Why should we see if he's there V
said her husband moodily. j
"Because I think wo ought to do
something iu it. Porn* Fred! Ho
would listen to you if you reasoned
with him, and set our positions in
their light before him. It would be
no more than Christian kindness to a
man who unquestionably is very miserable from sonic cause or other. His
head seems qui to turned."
By this time they hud reached tho
door, rung the bell, and waited. All
the house seemed to be asleep; but
soon a man camo to them, the horse
was taken uwuy, and the duko and
duchess wont in.
THIRD  SIGHT,
There was no help for it: Bill Wills
was obliged to stay on duty in the old
shepherd's absence, this oVening ns before, or give up his post and living.
Ho thought as bravely as he could of
what lay behind the Devil's Dour, but
with no great success, nnd waa, therefore, in a measure relieved, even if
awe-stricken, when he saw the forms
of the duke and duchess strolling
across the frosted green -sward. The
duchess was a few yards in front of
her husband, nnd tripped on lightly.
"I tell you ho has not thought it
worth whilo to come again!" the duke
insisted, as ho stood still, reluctant to
walk further.
"He is more likely to come and
wait all night; and it would be harsh
treatment to let him do su the second
time!"
"He is not horo; su turn and come
home."
"Ho seems not to be here certainly.
I wonder if anything has happened to
him. If it has, I shall never forgive
myself!"
Tho duke, uneasily:  "Oh, no.   He
has some other engagement."
"That is very unlikely ■'
"Or perhaps he may have found the
distance too far."
"Nor is that probable."
"Then he may havo thought better
of it."
"Yes, ho inny have thought better
of it: if indeed he is not hero all the
time—somewhere in the hollow behind
thu Devil's Dour. Let us go and see;
it will serve him right to surprise him."
"Oh, he's not there!" \
"Ho may bo lying very quiet because of you," she said archly,
"Oh, no, not because of me!"
"Come thou. I declare, dearest,
you lug like au unwilling schoolboy tonight, and there's no responsiveness
in you! Yon are jealous of that poor
lad, and it is quite absurd of you."
"I'll comu! I'll conic! Say no more,
Harriot!" And they crossed over the
green.
Wondering what (hoy would do, the
young shepherd left tho hut, and
doubled behind tho belt of furze, intending tu stand lioar the trilithon
unperceived. But, in crossing tlio
few yards of open ground he was for
a fow moments exposed to vioiv.
''Ah, I seo hiin at last.!" said the
duchess.
"See him V said thu duke.
"Where?"
"By tho Devil's Door—don't you
notice a figure thero i Ah, my poor
lovor-cousin, won't you catch it now!'-'
And she laughed half pityingly. "But
what's tho mutter?" sho asked turning
to her husband.
"It is not ho!" cried tho duke
hoarsely   "It can't be he!"
"No, it is not ho.   It is too small
for him.   It is a boy.''
"Ah, I thought ao. Boy, come here.''
Tho   youthful   shepherd  advanced
with apprehension,
"What are you doing here ?"
"Keeping sheep, your Grace."
"Ah, you know me.    Do you hoop
sheep here every night?"
"Oil" and on, my lord duke."
"And what havu you seen here to-
night  or  last  night?" Inquired the
duchess,     "Any   person   wuiting  or
Walking about I"
Tho boy was silent.
"He has seen nothing," interrupted
her husband, his eyes so forbiddingly
fixed on tho boy that they seemed to
shine liko points of fire.   "Come, lot
us go,     Tho air is too keen hero to
stand in long."
When they wero gone the boy retreated to the hut und sheep, less
fearful now than at first, familiarity
with tho situation having gradually
overpowered his thoughts of the buried
man. But he was not to bo loft alone
long. When an interval had elapsed
of about sufficient length for walkiag
to aud from Verneombo Towers, there
reappoared from that direct Iqil the
heavy form ot tho duko. Ho now
came alone.
The nobleman, on his part, sccmod
to lmvo eyes no lesi sharp than the
boy's, for ho instantly recognised the
latter among tho ewoi, und eaino
straight toward him.
"Aro you the shepherd lad I spoke
to a short timo ago ?"
"I bo, my lord duko."
"Now listen to me.   Her Grace ask-
oil you what you had aeon this lust
night or two up horo and you made no
reply.   I now ask the aniuo thing, and
you need not  be afraid to answer,
Havo you seen anything strange theno
nights you havo been watching hero?"
"My lord duko, I be a poor heedless
boy; and what I see I don't bear in
mind."
