Montreal does not propose this
winter to indulge in the luxury of
an ice palace and carnival, but St.
Paul is in the midst of its frigid
preparations. The St. Paul carnival is to open on the 25th January,
and remain open 11 days. The
snowshoe club of Montreal will probably take part in the festivities.
An unfortunate divorce case came
to a tragical ond in a railway acoi-
dent on the Eiohlieu River, near
St. John, N. B., about a week ago.
Marie Oarwin, a Frenoh Canadian,
had some years ago foolishly consented to a secret marriage with an
American whoso acqnaintenoo she
made while attending school. • The
matter was kept quiet as long as
possible, and when it leaked out
the husband slid out. For 12 years
the young wife tried to find him
without success until a few months
apo she discovered that he had married again and was engaged in a
thrivlhg business in Boston. She
began proceedings for a divoroe, and
was on the fatal train in tho interest of these proceedings when the
collision occurred, and she was killed. The faithless husband has been
by this accident saved from considerable embarrassment, but we
should imagine his conscience will
not permit him to take much pleasure in the situation.
Senator Plumb—not our Plumb
—believes in heroic measures of reform. He has introduced a bill
into the United States Senate making it an offence punishable by fine
and imprisonment, for nny railway,
sleeping car, telegraph or express
company, to offer any Congressman
or other Government official any
free pass or reduotion from the ordinary rates charged; and also making it an offence of like gravity for
any Government emyloyee to accept
or use such a pass. Such a drastic
measure of reform enforced in Oanada would be tantamount to a revolution, and would probably seriously reduce railway travel—on such
lines as the I. O. B., for instance.
Senator Plumb's bill reminds us of
the drastic reform proposed by Senator Molnnes, of British Columbia,
in the Canadian Senate, last session,
compelling all subsidised railways
to carry Senators and M. Ps. free.
Perhaos, if he oould get thot bill
passed into law he and the American Reformer, who is going on the
other tack, might strike an average.
Both would then be immortalized.—
Montreal Herald.
It is reported that a Los Angeles
real estate boomer who failed to get
up an excitement by offering a town
lot to every one who would pay the
cost of conveyance, has now concluded to throw in a map of California as a bonus. This leads the
St Paul Pioneer Press to say that
the remarkable boom in California
real property is not founded on a
sound basis. By means of cunningly-worded circulars nnd advertisements, thousands of eastern people
have boen drawn to California in
the belief thut it is a land flowing
with milk and honey. But there
has been no real paradise discovered
on this earth since tho dosing of the
original garden, and our St. Paul
ootemporary says reports of a very
unsatisfactory kind are beginning
to come back already from those
who have flocked to the golden state
under the impulse of deception. By
one of these people, from whose
eyes has deen rubbed off the gloss
of novelty, Los Angeles is described
as "a dirty, shabby town, where exorbitant pricesarecharged for everything, where buying and selling
town lots is the ohief industry,
where there ure practically no manufactures and littlo commerce to
make business after the real estate
excitement has passed, where creature comforts are almost unobtainable, and whero the only resemblance
between the picture and the reality
is found in the climate; summer
heat pouring down, in winter, upon
a brown and baked and arid basin
surrounded by dun hills." The description is prodably somewhat overdrawn, but, nevertheless it is beyond
dispute that thore is great disappointment among the emigrants
who have rushed to what they supposed to be the paradise of southern California.

A. M. Hamilton, Warkworth, writes:

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
lr ATHEIl FIOHT THAN PA.Y.
London, Dec. 28.—The aotivo preparations of Turkey, which comprise
a cull for 60,000 additional troops
show tlio seriousness of tho Sultan's
position, and attests tho fact that the
Ottoman-government is fully aware of
the gravity of tho situation. Turkey
still owes Russia £7,600,000 of indemnity exacted by tho latter at tho close
of the last armed conflict betweon the
Ottoman and Muscovite Jgmpii'fB, and
M. Nelidoff, the Russian ambassador
to Constantinople, has informed the
Porte in accordance with instruction.
from St. Petersburg, that unlesa the
money is paid forthwith Russia will
take possession ofthe territory in Asia
Minor which Turkey pledged to secure the indemnity. As Turkey cannot hy any possibility raise the sum
demanded, and doubtless would not
apply it to the payment of her debts
if she could, she will most likely decide that it is easier to light than to
pay, if she has not already reached
thnt conclusion.
HO UNEASINESS FELT.
Lonbon, Dec. 28.—A despatch from
Beiiin, Madagascar, state, that no uneasiness is occasioned by the absence
of news from H. M. Stanley. Direct
advices are expected by the steamer
whicli will arrive at Beina on January
20th, and the native reports brought
to Mozambique concerning the explorer are reassuring.
RENT nEDOCTIONS.
Dublin, Deo. 28.—The Gazelle publishes an order signed by Commissioners Lytton and French, prescribing reductions of judicial rents throughout,
practically, tho whole of Ireland, ranging from G to 22 per oent. The aggregate reduction is estimated at £2,000,-
000. The reduction is permanent, and
applies to arrears since 1881. Judge
O'Hagan attaches a note dissenting
from his colleagues.
OltANQE AND irllEF.N.
Dublin, Dec. 28.—A desperate light
between Orangemon and Catholics occurred at the village of Killybearn,
near Cookstown, county Tyrone, on
Monday. Stones, bricks, clubs and
revolvers were freely used, and the
house of the parish priest was almost
wrecked, the windows and door, having been smashed and the furniture
badly damaged. The Cal holies had
tho best of the fight at the start, but
the Orangemen were reinforced and
the struggle was renewed with increased fury. The battle was finally stopped by the police, who made several
arrests. Many person, were injured
by stones and jrlubs, but it is not
known that anybody was hurt by
bullets.
THE NEXT  OOVERNOR   OENERAL—CAVALRY HORSES.
London, Dec. 28.—The Manchester
Courier, which stated recently that
Lord Stanley of Preston had been offered the governor-generalship of Canada, now declares that Lord Stanley
ha. accepted the appointment and will
succeed the Marquis of Lansdowne. I
can obtain no authentic confirmation
of this statement. The opinion is expressed that though Lord Stanley
showed much sympathy with the
colonies when colonial secretary, he is
hardly the stamp of statesman to succeed the Earl of Dufferin, or the Marquises of Lome and Lansdowne.
The war office report reveals a serious state of things in regard to the
supply of horses for the British army.
In the mounts of the household cavalry thero is a large deficiency, as is also
the case in the dragoon regiments.
The now homo registered system is not
yot operative, but it is believed in
some well informed quarters that in
any caso it will hardly suffice to meet
tho pressing needs of tho army. It is
thought that if Canada takes prompt
mensuros to improve the home breeds
and encourages the raising of suitable
rein.rniits, that a ready and largo market will spoodily be found for such
aiiininld in Great Britain.
llESrECT OLD ArlE.
London, Dec. 28.—Tho 2'imes denounces the snowballing of Mr, Gladstone yesterday at Dover, and says
that the position and age of tlie Liberal louder ouirlitto insure him against
such insult.
lieved, will be that, with th* Canadian
Pacifio Roilway running from ocean to
ocean, the country can very well rest
on its oars for a few yean without in
anyway interfering with or postponing the fulfilment of the destiny await'
ing it in the future.
Up to lut evening 276 of the
360 tiokota, for the board
of trade dinner to Mr, Chamberlain at
tho Rosin House on Friday night, hid
been issued to memben. It u doubtful if Sir Charles Tupper will be among
the guests as his time between now
and January 4th, whenthe fisheries
commission resumes at Washington, ia
taxed to the utmost. The dining
committees, who havo oharge of the
decorations, hive decided to display
one American flag.
St. Patrick's ball waa burned yerter-

their   banners.
THIS AFTERNOON'S DE8PATCIM.
THE CROWN PRINCE BETTER.
San Remo, Dec. 20.—Dr. Mackenzie leaves hero to-morrow morning.
But will return from time to time as
occasion may require. He says the
crown prince is how free from all tht
disagreeable sensations which troubled
him from the beginning of the year to
the middle of November. He feels weU
and is hopeful and in good spirit*; Sir
Morell will carry away with Mm a
highly satisfactory impression aa to
the illustrious patient's genenl «ymp-
toms, but he again most emphatically
presses his conviction that it is quite
impossible at thia stage to decide what
is the exaot nature ofthe disease.
RAILWAY RCHORS.
Montreal, Dec. 29.—Genenl man*
ager Barker of the Northern R. R.,
was closeted with Mr. Hickun all day
yesterday. They will not talk to reporters; bnt it is believed the transfer
of the Northern RR. i. certain.
Mr. Mercier, not withstanding th*
failure of the provincial loan, i> quietly biding his time and will at an opportune moment oast a bombshell Into tho conservative ranks.' He feels
confident that all the by-elections will
be carried by the liberal., and iii that
event he will submit aome remarkable
measures of reform at the next ■
of the legislature.

THE HUDSON BAY   ROUTE..
Toronto, Doc. 29.—At the Eamon-
to rnrd O'Connor meoting Inst  night
over 3000 was subscribed for the Irish
cause,
Tho Mail's London  correspondent
oablos:   Tho Manchester Courier publishes a special article to-day headed,
"Hudson Bay Routo to be or not to
bo"   discussing  Lieut.   Gordon's report on  tho expedition to  Hudson
Strait', and concluding says: The new
route if it could be opened up  wonld
be most beneficial to Manitoba and
tho Northwest, and its desirability is
unquestioned. Tho matter is one, says
the Courier,  that   requires    careful
consideration,   not   only   from  the
inhabitants of   Canada,   but   from
capitalists and investors here, and the
Dominion government  deBerve great
thanks for tho expenditure they have
incurred in gathering togother reliable

New Yore, Dec. 26.—The Rev. Dr.
McGlynn received a check fer f 1200
as a Christmas present from the par-

by the deposed priest with a graceful
little speech in which he paid a tribute
to the love and loyalty that his former
congregation had shown toward him.
The money was contributed by the
people of the parish in sum. varying
from a dime to (60. Almost every
friend of the doctor gave something.
The presentation ceremony was entirely informal.
CONCEALED HIS  SIX.
Grand Rapids, Mich., Deo. 26.—
Fred Warber, of Grand Haven, ia in
trouble here, and all because of his
love for masquerading. Fred ia an
offeniinate-looking fellow about 19
years old. Several weeks ago he donned female attire, came to this city,
and obtained employment as a nune
girl in an eminently respectable family.
Fred or "Sallie Wilson" made a man
on his—or her—employer., and wa.
getting on swimmingly until another
servant in tbe house became suapio
ions, and the culprit was accused. He
broke down nt the fint onslaught, and
is now in jail awaiting examination for
hi. misdemeanor. The yonng man's
excuse fur his disputable trickery ia
that he was hard up, and couldn't get
employment at light work while weal*
ing tho regulation male apparel.

Collins is learning that true love oft-
times biteth like a serpent and stingeth
like an adder, under Michigan's new
ngeof consent law. Collins, who has
boen an ordinary successful buiinea
man here, became enamored of Josephine Bushel!, of Bridgeport, and notwithstanding her age, 14 yean, he
proposed honorable marriage. The
child's parentis ridiculed the idea, and
urged Collins not to make a fool of
himself, but the fellow wa. infatuated,
and one day during r)he absence of tht
elder Bushells, he took the girl away
and was married to her at her sister .
home, The bride and groom returned
for tho paternal blessing, but Bushel!
pore wasn't of that sort of material.
He swore out a warrant charging Collins with enticing a ohild bom her
home for purpose of marriage, and today he was convicted. The extreme
penalty is two yean in the penitaotiary.
The law under whioh Collins wu oon-
victed was enacted at the lut leaion
of the legislature, and make, it a penal
offense to marry t girl under 10 yean
of age.

Thursday Evening, Dec, 'ill, ltwj.
The rumors respecting impending
changes in the 0. P. R. have produced considerable sensation in the
east. London seems to be the
plaoe where these rumors hud their
origin, and it is believed the object
of them was speculation. The occasion has brought out a very general
expression of opinion, however, and
.both the government nnd tho railway company will be able to judge
from this expression what kind of
reception a proposal similar to tho
one mentioned would meet
with. We believe the gonoral opinion is that the purchase of tlio
monopoly rights of the company for
a reasonable consideration would bir
wise statesmanship, but any proposal to assist the company further out
of the public treasury, without a
lair equivalent, will meet with
very strong opposition.
Although tho Victoria newspapers
have boon poking fun at Oapt. Webber because ho threatened to run
the Ohina steamers past both Victoria and Esquimalt without stopping, the captain seems to have had
authority enough to enable him to
carry his threat into execution.
The Batavia came right through to
Vancouver on Tuesday, nnd it is intimated that hereafter these steamers
will not touch anywhere at Vanoouver Island on the inward or outward trip. So much for official
courtesy and retaliation. Crtptr.
"Webber was fired out of tho Victoria customs office by the collector,
who was probably acting within his
authority; but his injudicious conduct hns taken away from the people of the capital the sweet satisfaction of calling their city the
terminus of tho Ohina steamship
Hue. Until the obnoxious customs
regulations are relaxed, Oapt. Webber declares that the steamers will
not call; and he seems very likely to
keep bis word. It is a great pity
the line could not be run sons to accommodate aU parties. These vessels should call at both Westminster
and Victoria if tbey can do so without losing too much time, for it
would bemuchnicerto have thesfceam-
ers go to the passengers than to make
the passengers go to the steamers. Thero are now in this city nt
least three passengers ready to sail
by the Batavia, and thero is no reason why the steamer should not
oome up here for them. Of course
it is very easy to reach Vancouver
from this city, but it is easy to reach
it from Victoria (only a ferry); and
if the China steamers nre going to
call there, they may as woll call
here tool
A Portland newspaper recently
published what professed to be a report of an interview with Hon. Robt.
Dunsmuir, in which that gentleman
was mode to declare in favor of annexation. When the report came
out we felt sure there must be an
error. Mr. Dunsmuir has certainly
never been suspected of disloyalty,
and, as president of the provincial
council, he could hardly have been
guilty of suoh indiscretion as the
Portland paper attributed to him.
It is to be regretted that the Vancouver News should have not only
accepted the absurd report as true,
but made it tho text for a very unfortunate attack upon Mr. Dunsmuir.
Our aalt water cotemporary is the
only one among the newspapers of
this province, so far as wo have
seen, who has fallen into the mistake of accepting as true the very
extraordinary utterances put into
the mouth of the Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir by the Portland paper. The
remembrance of recent events ought
to have prevented this. Mr. Dunsmuir has made an explicit contradiction of the statements attributed
to him. Not only so, but ho declares
that what he did say was almost
the opposite of what was reported of
him. Instead of expressing a wish
to see British Columbia annexed to
the United States, ho said it was'
a great pity Oregon ond Washington Territory had not remained in
British possession. That wns certainly a very different thing, und no
one will say that Mr. Dunsmuir wus
not perfectly justified in saying il. It
was through the pig headed stupidity
of British officials that Oregon nnd
Washington were handed over to
the United States as worthless territory. If they had remained in
British possession we should own on
the Pacific coast a territory capoblo
of sustaining a population almost
equal to that of Great Britain. But
the Portland reporter, apparently,
did not relish what he got from Mr.
Dunimuir. He had a purpose to
serve which seemed to him more
important than making known the
truth, and it suited his purpose to
mutilate his report of tho interview
so as tbe make it appear that high
officials in British Columbia were
openly advocating annexation. Such
misrepresentations aro disgraceful to
the profession, and deserve the severest censure, Unless an end is put
to the custom of garbling statements
obtained by interviews, public men
will be forced to refuse on audience
to aU reporters, except in the pros-
enee ol trustworthy witnesses. Wo
are inclined to suspect that if such
cases were brought into the courts
they would be  adjudged  sufficient
rod upon which to base an action
lamagei.
A Sluggish Liver
Causes the Stomach und Bowula to become disordered, and tlio wholo system
to suffer from debility. In all such
caaes Ayer's Pills give prompt relief.
After much Buffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles, I have finally beon
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Pills.
I always find them prompt and thorough
in their action, nud their occasional use
keeps mo iu a perfectly healthy condition.—Ealph weeman, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five yearn ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayor's Pills.
Since that time I havo nevor been without them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and increase the appetite, more surely than nny other medi-
cine,—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy efjual to Ayer's
Pills for Stomaoh ana Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dyspepsia, for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and my tonguo coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Headache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer'a Pills, takon in moderate
dosea, restored mo to perfect health. —
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer'a Pills aro a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondency resulting from
Liver Complaint. I have used these
Pills in ray family, for years, and thoy
Dover fail to give entire satisfaction.—

over Ibis palace, and soo how tlio great

uwo upon tho noble pile. At first sho
exhibited shyness at the thought of going in; and meeting tho great people.
Hut her husband finally induced her to
iriko a walk through its halls. When
ihey came out ho asked her what she
thought of it. The young brido expressed
hor admiration for whnt was really tho

"Yes, my friend, I did."   -      -'
"Ah, air, that wa a picture I" added

establish a new "Lainl of Canaan," where
the followers of the "unborn lamb" could
worship in peace, away from tlio vices of

Cariosities of Fires,
What is fire? asks a writer in the
Pittsburg Disjmkh. Any dictionary or
workou chemistry will givo udo.iuition,
but oven the fullest definition loaves
much to be desired, Fire is llio evidence
of a rapid chomical change, but all
chemical changes do not produce It.

A lecture reported in a recent number
of the bcienlijic Aut.rican Supplement
contains the following statoiuon s r
"Somo may imagine that if nsolid body

thore is a spneo betweon the two which
it Is Impossible to pass, a cold and lliiuic-

the sido of this vessel I paste a thin

The "singing flames" aro easily produced by burning a gns let midway of a
Ions glass tube open at both ends, The
result, is a musical note ths pitch of

the jet is raised or lowered. ' Tho sorrsi-

Tub Savannah Neies, one of tho host

untitled "Does Prohibition Prohibit V" a3

"It is not necessary for Georgian, to

"It Saved My Life"
In a common expression, often heard
from tnose who havo realized, by personal use, the curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. w I cannot say enough
in praise of Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral,, be-
lieving S3 I do that, but xor its use, I
should long since have died from lung
troubles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tox.
About six montbs ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of sleep and rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that It
helped me at once. By continued uso
this medicine cured my cough, and, 1
tun satisfied, saved my life.—Mrs. E.
Coburn, 18 Becond st., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayor's Cherry Peotoral
for over a year, and sincerely believe I
should have boen in my grave, had it
not been for this medicine. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of the lungs,
for which Iliad almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
'Windsor, Provinco of Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took a vory severe Cold
whioh settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took tbe remedies they
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Two botflies of this medicine
completely restored my health. —Lizzie

Christmas, who was dressed iu his hirst
holiday garments, then distributed the
presents, delivering,ns lio did so,many

The Festive glwnsli.
A festive Siwash, named Jimmy,
who had been prolonging the Christmas holidays more than was actually
necesaary, got into troubleTast night.
Filling himself nicely with the spirits
which incite rampugeousness he proceeded to hunt up somo person to make
mince meat off, or otherwise completely demolish. The streets were almost
bare of peoplo and it soemed for a
while as if Jimmy would be compelled
to put off his worthy design until
morning. Unfortunately for tbo wicked Siwash he ospied, through n window, a chinaman, named Yuen Kce,
whom ho thought would suit his purpose nicely. After trying the door,
which he found locked, he gave a genuine old-fashioned war whoop which
wakened the echoes for many a block
roundabout, and mado the pigtail
quiver on the celestial's head. Yuen
Kee, who is n very peaceable person,
advanced to tho front of the shop
where ho was met with an invitation
to " step out and try it." This the
Chinaman very properly refused to do,
and Jimmy becoming enraged drove
his fist through a large pane of glass
nnd proceeded to demolish the rest of
the window in the same way. As soon
as the glass breaking process commenced the Chinaman made his exit
through the baok door and informed
the police of the occurrence. The
constable who was on duty at the
time, promptly made his way to the
shop, where he found Jimmy still actively and earnestly engaged in reducing the windows to powdered
glass. A kind but firm hand was in a
moment fixed on the scruff ot the offender's neck, and, notwithstanding
the objections nnd protestations made,
Jimmy soon found himself accommodated in the best apartment in the city
lock-up.

Correspondence of the Columbian,
Mount Lehman, Dec. 27.-A gloom
of sorrow has been cast over our settlement by the death of one of our
most respected young men, Mr. Richard Wilkinson, who died at the residence of Mr. Daniel Nicholson, of
Wharnock at 0 o'clock Christinas
morning, Mr. Wilkinson had been
very low for some time and his death
was daily looked for by his many
frionds. The body arrived here Monday morning in its neat casket,. accompanied by a large number of kind
friends from Wharnock, who were
met at the landing by a large number
of friends and associates of deceased.
There a procession was formed and
the body was escorted to the school
house, whore the very solemn and
effective funeral services were conducted bv the Rev. Whitfield Patterson,
our circuit pastor. It is pleasing to
state that the building way filled beyond its sitting capacity. Atthe chse
of the services tho corpse was carried
to a conveyance, and was followed by
a large procession of sorrowful friends
who desired to Bee their departed
friend laid at rest. Mr. Wilkinson, I
am informed, was a parentless young
man, and had no relation in the province. He arrived amorgst us in company with his parental friends, Mr,
and Mrs, Daniel Nicholson, from Manitoba in the Autumn of 1884, and,
like his many friends and neighbors,
took land and engaged in farming.
But that terrible disease, consumption,
having taken hold of him, he was compelled to dispose of his place about a
Sear ago, and since that time he has
een cared for by Mr. and Mrs. Nicholson, who acted to him the part of
the kindest father and mother. They
having moved sometime ago to Wharnock, Mr. Wilkinson accompanied
them, and in accordance with his wishes was buried in Mt, Lehman along
side of Lillio, their little daughter.
Mr, Wilkinson was a respectable,
kind dispositioned young gentlemen,
always ready to lend a helping hand
when it was in his power, and with
all who knew him a general favorite.
His many excellent qualities were
highly appreciated by the people of
this settlement, who paid a feeling
tribute to his memory, nnd his loss
will be greatly felt. Winnipeg and
Ontario papers please copy.
Thomas Robinson, Farnhim Centre,
P, Q., writes: "I have been afflicted
with rheumatism for- the lost ten years,
and have tried many remedies without
any relief, I got a bottle of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil, and found it gave instant relief, and since then have had no
attack, I-wonld recommend it to all."
Frcm tbe North Arm.
(Correspondence of the Columbian.)
While    Westminster,   Vancouver,
Delta and  other  parts  of the district are making such rapid strides in
tho way of improvements, it may not
be uninteresting to  know  that the
municipality of Richmond  is  making
slow but Bure progress  in  many  re-
spects.   Its proximity to Vancouver,
the terminus of the C.P.R., that wonderful achievement of  "engineering
skill," leads us to suppose, without tlie
shadow of doubt, that a  very  large
proportion of tho productions of our
farms and gardens will find rendy market in that city.     This  fact  should
stimulate our farmers to put forth renewed exertions with the view of supplying the continually increasing demand from that quarter.    Thousands
of dollars are being continually sent
abroad for products of every description    which   should   be   retained  at
homo.   The capabilities of production
in our soil are an established fact.   We
have no hesitation in stating thnt these
"delta lands" are tho gardens of B.C.,
but the developments have not been
altogether in proportion to the requirements of tho cflse.   With these things
in view we may begin by stating that
we should have increased postal facilities.   Our weekly mail at  the  North
Arm and Sea Island postofflces cohiob
very far short of meeting the requirements of the case.   If we mistake not
Lulu Island postofhee  on  the  South
Arm has a mail bix days in the week, j
threo from Victoria, and three  from
Westminster.   This is as it should be,
and we on the North Arm now see no
reason'why  wo  may not be equally
favored.   Now thnt a daily stage  has
been established from the North Arm
to Vancouver we can see nothing in
the way of securing at least a tri-weck-
ly mail service.   This would meet the
present    requirements   of the case,
and if tlie matter was placed in its proper light before tho proper authorities
we havo no doubt that the attainment
of this most desirable result could be
easily1 effected,   especially  when, "we
are led to believe, the amount of subsidy would not necessarily be increased.
Lulu and Sen Islands want  increased
facilities.   Damo rumor has  it that
during the coming year an application
will be made to the municipal council
to plaoe before the electors  for their
approval a scheme for tho purposo  of
securing these increased facilities,whatever they may bo.    A representative
from the C.P.R. syndicato hns  signified his intention of meeting the ratepayers of the municipality at the town
hall on Saturday next, 31st inst., nt 1
p.m., for the purpose of laying before
them some scheme for improvements,
such  as a direct roatl to the Norlh
Arm settlement, bridges  to connect,
tho opening up of thoroughfares leading thereto,   &c.   It   would he advisable for as many as possible to make
it a point to be preEont on that occn
sion.    It would be a pity if our representatives fur tho district could not be
presont also.    We have claims upon
them which can not be well overlooked.
If Uioho must desirable objects can be
attained by uniting  together  in  one
grand effort, would it not be well  for
our people here to he pondering those
things woll nnd endeavor to formulate
aome scheme by which we may be able
to place   ourselves   in   that   position
whioh nature and circumstances clenrly
indicate wc should occupy as one of iho
foreincst, if not tho most pro'prroun,
portions of our fair land ?
