uro .soemingly
aiido."* Ohe
think that jor
Mr. Duncan and his Metlukahtlant),
of their bod treatment by the two
governin6nts and their final emigration, were it not for Iho fact that
their grievances hive been brought
prominently before the country
tlirougli your own.columns. I am
one of those who have alwnys belie veil that Mr.: Duncan's eflbrls
wero not appreciated by the government of this province; that great
injustice was dene him- by successive commissioners sent to inquire
into the condition of tho mission,
and that at last despairing of receiving that treatment to which his
eminent services' entitled him, he
went away. Thd selection may
have been accidental; but is it not a
little strange that the members of
tbo various commissions were drawn
exclusively ftoA *<9iu'rbn of England
adherents 1 It was with the ohuroh
of England that Mr. Duncan had
his first quarrel and the religious
personnel of the commissions is evidence of the preponderating influence of tbat great body with our
executive council. For one, I never
looked for fair play from commissions so constituted; and 1 was never
disappointed. Ily a strange (!) coincidence the lule Nans Hiver commission was also composed of church
of England adherents, and we hnd
the influence of tlmt body manifested in the pages of the report which,
inforentially at least, condemns the
Methodist missionaries. Could these
coincidences'be accMiBttaH ' "Why
were not commissioners elected from
bodies not at variance in tho matters involved 1
Again, sir, I take exception to
your sneer at the Methodist missionaries for engaging in trade—because I am in a position to know
that the establishment of trading
posts amongst them has dono as
much to turn the natives of the
northwest ooast from their heathenish practices and pursuits as the introduction of the Bible. The two
are working well together. When
you counsel an Indian to renounce
heathenism and its ways he naturally asks you how he is to gain a livelihood as a civilized being. Then
,tho value of the trading missionary
becomes manifest. Ue offers to show
the savage how to till the soil and
can Iish, to make his own blankets;
to log the timber and convert it into lumber; to tear down his wigwam
and erect a comfortable dwelling.
He oilers to teach him to read and
write and keep accounts, so that in
trade he cannot be imposed upon by
unprincipled whites. Having demonstrated to tho heathen thnt his
temporal condition will be improved
by dolling thp breechclout and
blanket aud substituting the pants
and coat; by exchanging industrial
pursuits for his shiftless and nomadic methods of supplying his daily
wants, the missionary is next enabled to hold out to him the Bread
of Life with a reasonable hope that
it will be accepted with eagerness.
Mr. Duncan attributes much of his
great success in reaching tho In
dinn's heart to trade, and Bishop
Ridley was not slow in following his
cxnniplo by establishing a store.
Mr. Orosby found the Tsimpseans
hcathenistic and cannibalistic in
their rites and habits. He has created from that unpromising material
an industrious nud law-abiding community of Christians through the
midst of whom tho wllite man may
travel in perfect safety, If he is
poor, tho Christian natives will supply his wants from their abundance;
if he is wealthy, he may entrust his
gold to them in perfect confidence
that every penncy will be accounted
for.
Who hns forgotten the Yeoman's
murder at tho Forks of Skeena 1
Where did the provincial authorities apply when thoy sought to arrest the assassin 1 To the Tsimpsean
Mission, conducted by liovs. Orosby
and Green, who acted as guides and
counselled tho interior Indiana to deliver up the murderer, (a great chief)
aud told them of the strong arm of the
government that would be stretched
out to crush thein if tli_iy should liftira
Mr, Elliott uud Mr.. liuy.nifl who
were .out to make the arrat., Xlie
government oflicor. wirrv profuse in
their tlrru.l.a (p Mi'sus. Crushy . and
Green on that r.ct'iisioi) by- nvet-ting
war; nud to-day those gentleiueu who
have done su much to bring tlie Indians within thi fold of Chriat and to
nrnkc thorn useful members of 'aocicly
are held up to public scorn as' firebrands who have $one aiming the sAv-
nges with the solo object iif ,mnl.iug

is a large one. It ia possible that thu

should be compensated for their lands.
ed precedent in the speech of Lord
*••■•••■--•-, at Victorin in WO, when,the
Iho natives to be paid for their
is cleverly laid down. I do
not say lhat I hold with Lord Duflerin;
but the fact remains and the mission-,
arics hare not stepped outside the lines
laid down by Lord Duflerin. I could
go on at great letigth to . review your
article, but 1 think I have said enough
to convince even you thnt the Methodists are nut the only body who.have a
grievance nnd that thoir presence on
the northwest const ia for a higher and
nobler purpose than lo make money.
I fenr from the tone of your article
that tho tactics which wore successfully
adopted to destroy Mr. Duncan's mission are about to be employed to break
down the Methodist mission at Tsimpsean. The influences that wore brought
.to boar on Mr. Duncan by the Bishop
of Caledonia seem about to be directed
at the Methodists. Well, air, 1 do not
■four thnt the plot will succeed. I have
an abiding faith iu ihe militant resources of the Methodist church, and
the men or governments that may tear
down the banner of Christ planted by
Crosby and Green on Nans rivor will
shortly have reason tu wish, with Job,
that they had never boen born.

Daiarday Evening, May M. tsss.
Prof. Geo. B. Wilcox, of Ohioago,
is authority for the statement that
tho purchase of Alaska by the
American government was not a
commercial transaction Imt ono of
the necessities of war. The story is
told in the Contfrcjationolist and
seems to lie accepted generally as
accurate. At one time during the
civil war it was believed that Groat
Britain and France would join together to rocognizo and assist tho
confederate states iu their struggle
against the union. President Lih-
coln felt that if such a contingency
was allowed to happen, the hope of
national success would be almost
blotted out. Under pressure of the
circumstances, and taking advantage
of the friendly attitude of Russia
towards the United States, he made
overtures to tho Russian government which resulted in the sending
of several Russian war vessels to
take part in defending northern
ports and maintaining the blockade
of the south. It is said that tho
presence of these vessels at the time
caused considerable .comment, but
no explanation of tho mystery was
ever given. The danger passed
away, however. The threatened
alliance between Britain and France
was never consummated, and when
this became known the Russian
war ships disappeared as quietly as
they had como. President Lincoln
did not know very well how to pay
Russia for her fruitless services
without making public the circumstances, and this he did not wish to
do. While puzzling over the difficulty, the president was assassinated
and the war came to an ond. Secretary Seward finally proposed that
the sum demanded by Russia should
be paid ostensibly for Alaska, and
this was agroed to. In 1867 Russia received from tho United States
the sum of $7,200,000 in consideration of the little naval exhibition
on the Atlantic coast, and she handed over to the American government what she regarded as a valueless possession in North America.
The estate, however unprofitable it
may have proved in Russian hands,
has not been so to the Americans,
for it has proved rich beyond all expectation in various resources; and,
perhaps, at was worth the sum paid
after all. If the statement made by
Prof. Wilcox is true, the members
of the U. S. government must be
wonderfully expert at keeping state
secrets.
Quite a number of city lots tiro
reported to have changed hands yesterday at a large advance on previous prices, and there is a steady
enquiry for real estate. While there
is no reason to doubt that the circumstances are quite sufficient to
justify a large advance in the prices
which have hitherto been prevailing
in this city, it is to be feared some
of the property now changing hands
is going into the possession of speculators who care nothing for the interests of the city so long as they
see a fair prospect of profit from
their investment. Some shortsighted people seem to bo longing
for what is known as a boom in real
ostate. But the word "boom" has
come to be used in a double sense.
When business is brisk, and sales
are satisfactory, people say things
nro booming; and when real estate
is forced by speculators away up to
figures which are far beyond its intrinsic value, they call it a boom.
The one is a legitimate and healthy
condition of affairs; the other is
the result of artificial stimulus,
whioh is not healthy, and which is
invariable followed by reaction and
generally by collapse. Of legitimate
and healthy business we cannot
have too much; of speculative boom
we cannot have too little. It is to
be hoped, therefore, that no oue will
give encouragement to this sort of
boom. It would, doubtless, put
considerable money into the pockets
of some fortunate speculators, but it
would leave the city in a decline
from which it could not recover for
years. Most of our readers know
something about the history and
consequences of the Winnipeg boom,
and wo are sure no person has any
wish to repeat the experiences which
led to that disaster. We have had
booms on a smaller scale nearer
home. There was the Port Moody
boom, out of which very few people
mado any money, and in which hundreds of thousands were sunk. Vancouver has hod a boom on a small
scele, but it has not yet reached the
point of extreme danger, and at the
present moment the boom is not at
all active, But there are not a few
of Vancouver's solid men who are
seriously concerned even nt the remote possibility of a genuine boom,
for they well know that nothing
more fatal to the public interest
could occur. The samo fear ought
to be present to the minds of our
citizens. A man gets drunk sometimes > because the exhilaration of
intoxication is delightful; but the
reaction which surely follows will
leave him worse than ever. So has
been the history of tho boom. While
the.intoxication of big sales and big
profits and swift excitement lasts,
the mind is not permitted lo dwell
upon what is to follow. But as
■ure as the afterdamp follows the
explosion of gas iu a coal mine, so
surely wijl the equally fatal dead-
ChiWiwi Ciyfer Pltcher'nCaitoria
ness follow tho wildcat boom. Lot
us be content with slow progress so
long as it is solid and secure, and at
the ond of tho race tho snail may bo
found far in Advance of tho hare.

Tke Ckurcb and Drink.
The Church of England is nobly
leading the ran among the churches of
» England in the crusado aminst drink.
A further evidence of this is to be seen
in the fact that the Archbishop of Canterbury, in convening a Pan-Anglican
conference in London next summer of
all the bishops of the Anglican communion, about 210 in number, places
first on the list of six subjects definitely suggested for discussion, the
church s practical work in relation to
intemperance. This may surely be
hailed as t significant sign of progress.

Cardinal Manning's Keller! Ions
In England as much money is spent
for liquor as broad, butter, nnd cheese,
and three times the amount spent for
tea, sugar, coffee, aud cocoa. Cardinal
Manning in an article in the Fortnightly Review, referring to the national vice of England, said: " In the
year 1829 the places of sale were
about fifty thousand. They are now
over two hundred thousand—that is,
fourfold. But the population has
hardly doubled. Eighteen years ago
that is, about the year 1868—the capital employed was estimated at eighty-
two millions. In 1880 it was estimated
at a hundred and thirty<eight millions.
Some years ago, in the time of commercial prosperity and of high wages,
the amount was estimated at between
a hundred and forty and a hundred
and fifty millions. Among all the
trades in this country there is only one
that always prospers. Every trade at
this moment is depressed, but tho
drink trade is always increasing; fresh
capital ts always ready, and tho commercial interests of the great capitalists iu this monopoly must always
prompt them by all efforts to tako advantage uf every opening to increase
their profits. On one side are ranged
the interests of this monopoly, the capital of which exceeds the capital employed in our great staples ul iron, or
cotton, or cloth; on the other aro
ranged the welfare of the people of
the kingdom, the sobriety of our race,
the order and well-being of-homes,
without which uo commonwealth can
long endure, for the political order
rests upon the social, and the social order rests upon the domestic life of
men."

At the Tombs ooo morning, says
IhoiV. *f. World, John Hardy, a comparatively young man, waa a prisoner.
Hia young wile and a pretty flaxen-
haired girl of {onr years stood by his
■Ide. The little one seized the young
man's hand and aaid pleadingly:
"Oh papal please papa, come home."
"What a wretch I ani to bring my
wile and child to suoh a place as this,"
said the man in a choking voice. "Oo
home, Jennie, and leave me. I am
only disgracing you, and you can get
i along without me."
"I couldn't so home if I tried,"
faltered the wife, "for I am a prisoner
, like yourself."
"Is thb more of my work?" said
the young man, bitterly.
"I waa using persuasion to get you
home, and ao was baby.   You tried to
i posh ua away to go back to the saloon,
but I held your arms and screamed,
and we were both arrested."
"Judge," aaid tho husband, "pleaso
give me six months and discharge my
wife. Drink gets tho batter of ine at
times and I make a brute of myself."
"I want six months too, if he gets
it," spoke up the wife, "for it's more
my fault than hit that we stand before you to-day."
"Your fault I" gasped tho husband.
"No, no, Jennie, it'a mino, it's mine."
"I say it'a mine," remarked tho
wife. "Don't you remember, John,
what you aaid to mo yesterday morning aa you started for your work I
"Jennie, be sure now,' wu what you
laid, 'and be at the shop at six o'olock
«nd induce me to come home, or olse
1 it will be like other Saturday nights,
und I will come home penniless.' I
I met a women and we got tn talking
and before I knew it it was ten minutes post six, I hurried to the shop,
but waa too late."
Re was discharged.
It was whiskey did it, and whiskey
keeps doing it; and politicans license
men to sell the whiskey, and so set
traps for the unwary, and lead them
down to death and hell. Woe' to the
mon who lay stumbling blaoks in the
paths of the weak I Woe to the world

inquisition for blood, men will Und

ourselves, we would have rejoiced if,
by an entire stoppageof the distilleries
the beastly intoxication of Scotland
would be aoapended."

A Negro Boy's Dlseortrry nr a Coin Said To
- Be Worth 1.(150.
A few days ago a negro boy wasstandtng
near a trash pile, and was engaged in running his toes through tho debris. Ho noticed something' bright In the pile, and
when he picked it up found it to be a very
small yellow coin. At first ho thought it
was copper, but as he fingered it his native
sense told him it waa too heavy for copper, so he at once conjectured that lt was
made of gold.     :
He had some business with Frank
Walker, and while in his oHlco showed
him tho piece of money. V.n asked tho
lawyer hoiv much ho would give him for
it. Tho attorney, after eyeing it closi-ly,
thought it wasa gold dollnr, nnd as he was
particularly anxious to Ret srtch a coin to
wear on his wateh churn, he offered tbo
boy a doilal* for it, which ho gleefully ac-
cep.tcd.
Mr. Walker gave tho coin a careful or..
nmiiiiilirrii, rtrrrl bectim.r irtin v:riuiil thnt lio
had paid too much forit. lio waa in Colonel's Rridwino'a ofllce, nnd took tho coin
out anil e:;Mliitedit to tiro i;retit flnnncier.
"What will yoq-glve mc (or lt I" he a.kerl.
"I'll pivo yon a dollnr," was the reply.
"And I'll givo youAdollarHtiiinquarter,"
interrupted a man who hurl ornre. iu to renew a note. "Dono," oxelnlmoil Mr.
Wuiker. "Hero's your money," was tho
quick answer. Tho buyer li-rt, (ho offlco
, with his coin, and the lawyer thought ho
had mndo a good bargain.
Hurrying oil to a man that buys coins,
the pUVch'asfir exhibited tiro piece, Tho
dealer scrutinized it closely slid said:
"What will you take for it t" "What will
you glvo>" After a littlo consideration
tliodi'itlersrlirl: "Will )'rm irl!:ut55forlt>"
Tho iiiisuoL' was: "No,Imt l'lLtilko$3Jfor
it." " it's it go; here's yonr money," aud
tho happy man walked out of the oflice.
Trio coin wliiaii figured in these transactions is a Couf.derate gold dollar. A gentleman was talking yesterday to a reporter, nml lio said: "The worst sold man
of tlio four was he who sold the coin for
♦30, I tit bu true that it is, as represented,
a ;_eiinine Confederate Kold dollar, It is
worth -ft-iO. I am told that thero are only
sixof tlioso coins in existence. Tbeyure
tho only ones which were coined. They
arc worth ijiijil eaoh."
Tho reporter came away convinced that
of all .the men who figured iu this affair,
the gentleman who gave this wonderful
information was tbe worst sold of any.

Queer Sign-Posts for Streets as Seen la
Mm-ldri, Yucatan.
Formerly all the streets iu Merlda were
distinguished in a manner peculiar to Yucatan, by images of birds or beasts set up
i.t tho comers, and many still retain the
encreut sign; for example, the street upon
which we are living is called La Calle del
Flamingo, becanso of a hugo red flamingo painted on the corner house.
Another is known as the street of the
Elephant, nnd the representation of lt la
an exaggerated animal, with curved trunk
and a body a r big as a barrel.
There is tire street of tho Old Woman,
and ou its corner is the caricature of an
aged female, with hugo spectacles astride
her nose.
The street of tho Two Faces hu a
double-faced human head; and there on
others equally striking.
The reason for this kindergarten sort ol
momenclature was because .when tbe
streets wero named the great mass of inhabitants were Indians who could not
read, and therefore printed signs would
havo beeu no use to them, but the picture of a hull, a flamingo or au elephaut
they could not mistake.
ranting and Women Printers,
The word printer was as first used for
wood engraver. The art of printing is
thought by some to have been discovered
by tire Chinese in the ninth century. All
tlieir printing is'still done by means of
w. oilon blocks. They have uo movable
types. Tlio art of printing is alao thought
to Imvo been known in Japan before it
was in l.uropo. There are two kinds of
priming — surface printing and plate
priming.
lu tiio first the typts on blocks aro
raised on tho surface, in tho second the
linos or marks are cut in, There is ho
ut in which greater mechanical improvements have taken place than that ol
priming. Printing is usually divided
into threo branches—book publishing,
newspaper and periodical, card and job
priiifiiig. I apers are now printed at the
r.rt'ii oi irom one thousand to forty thousand sheets per hour. Tbe machine
li iirs scarcely any resemblance to the
liltle hand press of John Guttenberg,
Hint could only print a book in a year.
Tire press is a vast engine—a mighty instrument for the formation ol society. It
wields a silent but powerful influence
for good or evil. Many of the distinguished men who have lived were print-
ins, tome of them without money or
iriends havo risen to eminence, and
filled important stations in the government of their country. May tlie women
of tho printing press emulate their goodness and greatness. In his history of
printing Thomas mentions fourteen
indies that carried on the business of
priming in (he United .States, Three of
tliem were practical printers, and I believe all worked in lioston.
A Strung. S.ct In Italy.
Tho capture ol a brigand nearBoc-
chigliere. a hamlet situated in a remote
part of the Calebrlan Highlands, hu revealed the existonce in that region of au
extensive sect remarkable alike for the
wildness of its tenets and tho nefarious
character of its practices. Its head is an
ox sergeant, Gabriel Dounici, who claims
to bo Uie Diety, and represents the Advent still to come.
During the lut fire years ht has been
organizing this sect, which comprises
nearly all the. small farmers and shepherds of Ihe district. His gospel seems
to Ire a sort of Communism ofthe lowest
and most sensual type. The clandestine
meetings of the sect are alleged to be
marked by orgies and obscene rites,
rivalling tho worst Oriental paganism.
I ouriici a own sister-in-law, for refusing
to conform lo these practices, wu shut
up in a cave and left there to die. This
nearly led to the breaking up of tbo
community, ns Donnici, and lus followers were arrested and tried for murder;
but, owing to the impossibility of procuring witnesses against them, they were
acquitted.
This sect hu now been brought into
fuller notice by the capture of SSerafino
Ilriino, one of Its leading members, or
saints, ns thoy nro styled. This worthy,
alter murdering a doctor, betook hiniBi'lf
last .1 pril to the woods, and with the connivance ol liis coreligionists flourished
there ai a highway robber. The police
having failed to track him, 1 runo wns
arrested thu other day hy a local landowner.
His capture occuionod great demonstrations of grief at Iiocrhigliirro, where
hundreds of mon and women huhghiimtt
thia previous sniut and kissed him rapturously.
Constipation
Is a universal and most troublesome disorder. It causes Headache, Mental De-
presslon, impairs the Sight and Hearing,
destroys the Appetite, and, when long
continued, causes Enlargement of the
liver, Inflammation of the Bowels, and
Files, Constipation Is speedily cured
by Ayer's Pills.
For a number of months I was
troubled with Oostlveness, in consequence of which I suffered from Less of
Appetite, Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. My eyes also troubled me. I wos
compelled to wear a shade over them,
and, at times, was unable to bear exposure to the light, I was entirely
CURED BY USING
three boxes of Ayer's Fills. I have no
hesitation in pronouncing tliis medicino
to be the best cathartic over made.—
James Eccles, Poland, Ohio.
I suffered from Constipation, and, con.
sequently, from Headache, Indigestion,
ana Files, for years. Ayer's Fills, whioh
I took at the suggestion of a friend, have
given mo effectual relief, I commenced
taking this remedy two months ago, and
am now free from Constipation, the removal of whioh has caused my other
troubles to disappear, and greatly improved my general health. —W. Keeler,
Amherst, Mass.

againsc external weight or pressure
and of requisite size,; so that when
satisfactorily exhausted of air it will
by a displacement of a bulk of extonial
air greater than its weight, rise in thu
air and sustain and carry a desired burden. Tho air-ship will have propelling
apparatus and storage batteries, and is
oxpoctod to bo nblo to carry freight

Onr WooIt*ii  Jim,
The woolen mill has again got to
work, and in the course of about three
weeks will bo running to its full capacity. Up to a weok ago the mill
hnd been shut down for several months.
Frum various causes it had not been
running satisfactorily, which wns tho
occasion of the temporary closure. In
the meantime extensivo improvements
and alteration:, havo been made iu tho
building, and now machinery, which
waa needed beforo, has been added,
thus considerably increasing the
efficiency of tlio establishment. A new
manager tins also taken charge, Mr.
Thos. Kerr, lato of Picton county,
Kova Scotia. Mr. Kerr ntid two
brothers owned aud ran a woolen mill
in Nova Scotia for yems. The now
manager, who has ono of his brothers
with him here, is a thoroughly pructi-
cal man, nnd feels conlidcnt that this
important industry, if properly encouraged and supported, can be made,
an unqualified success. Tlie preaent
plant, whicli is what is known us a.oiie-
set mill, can not bo worked to tho same
advantage by a considerable margin as
a two-set mill. By expending nn additional capital amount of something
under .?w,000 the mill oould bo placed
un the latter status, as tho building
itself—with slight additions—and some
of the machinery, is already adejua'o
tor the purpose. Hore is an opportunity for making a good investment,
and to help build up otir woolen mils
into a great manufacturing industry,
as they.would then be in a position to
compete in the markets of the worh\
Mr. Kerr says .thnt the raw , wool,
which is obtained from the upper country, is cheap in price nud superior in
quality as compared with tlm common
eastern grades. Tho cost nf tabor is
somewhat higher than eastern rales,
but tho work ia well suited—und is
evon healthy, Mr. Kerr says—for buys
und girls, and as thin class of labor
would eo"n take advantage of auch
opportunities fur woj-k, tho mills are
nut likoly tu bo seriously handicapped
iu the itviu of lnl-oi\ A great deal of
Water is WqlllfOd in the mnuufneture,
which hiis tt) he mostly pumped
from the river' at present, as
the lank behind tho. mills is not
commonsurate with thu demand. An
inexhaustible supply of wntor, such ns
tlie Coquitlam water works would furnish, would bo a groat convenience.,
Thu mill is working ou tweeds
this week, and but two looms
nm running su fnr; next week flannels
will be turned out, and four looms
kept going, and shortly tho establishment workodto its full capacity. Much
mny fee dono to assist this enterprise
by a systematic local patronage. In a
few weeks we shall give a more detailed
account of the.operations of the mill.

A meeting of a number of Westminster's most influential citizens was
held iu the Coquitlam Water Co.'s uf-
lice, laet.night, to discuss the urgency
of an immediate supply Of water boing
furnished the city, and tho most expedition*- means of bringing that very
important scheme to a direct issue.
The importance and necessity of this
work being proceeded with immediately, as regards safuty from fire, its effects'on insurance rutes, sewernge and
the general health of the city, wus admitted by all present.
Mr. John Hendry was called to the
chair nnd Mr. T. J. Trapp kindly
acted as secretary to the meoting.
After Borne discussion Mr. Corbould,
uu behalf uf the Coquidam Water
Works Co., saitl the two following pro
puaitiuus had heen suggested tu thu
company, and it was for this meeting
to discuss them or any other proposition thnt might bo brought forward.
Tho propositions wero:
(1). That the company should issuo
8170,000 worth of stock and that tho
city should take $100,000 and the
citrons $70,000; of this 10 per cent,
should be paid up aud expended at
enco on the works, and that the company should then borrow tho remaining 90 per cent, and finish the works.
(2). That tho city should pay to the
company §5000 per annum io be raised
by a special fire rate, and tho city may,
on giving 12 months notice in writing
to the company after tho oxpirntion of
10 years, acquire the works on payment thorofor to tho company of the
value of tho works and property, with
10 per cent, added thereto, toeethor
with an additional sum sufficient to
provido fur the payment of 10 por
cent, to the company on . thoir outlay
from tbo commencement of the works
to the date of transfer, in cose the
revenue should nut have been sufficient to mako up 10 per cent. ., . .
Mr. Corbould further explained that
tho pipe line survey to Coquitlam lake
was very satisfactory,nnd tho supply of
water would be pure and excellent.
He did not think a reservoir would ho
necessary.
Mr. Thos. Cunningham thought tho
last proposition a very liberal one. The
city would sOon have to borrow from
9150,000 to" $300,009 for projected
works,and there might be some difficulty in floating the luan if tho city was
not properly   protected  against  fire.
He did not think any reasonable man
would object to. the proposition.
Mr. Beecher said tho city could nut
afford tu build the works with tho
Bumo surety of success as tho company,
and, therefore, overy citizen should
cheerfully aid tho 'scheme. If it was
possible the oity -should own tho water
works, but not being able to du so the
next bust thing wns that thu city should
be able to purchnse the works at the
expiration of 10 years. Tho interests
of the city should be jealously guarded,
more particularly so as money would
soon be required for projects under discussion, and unless tlie city was supplied with wator, or was certain of a
supply in the near future, tho borrowing powers of the council might be
hampered thereby. Iu the mutter of
sewerage it wns absolutely necessary to
havo water, and tho city must bo
sewored almost immediately or widespread sickness would be thu result.
Mr. Brown asked if tho company
would reduce tho amount to be. paid
by tho city after the works had paid
over a certain percentage.
Mr. Corbould Baid tho company
would do co if Iho city would make up
.any lose, should thore be one. He
further pointed out that tho company's
charter provided for this part, and that
after tho works paid 20 per cent the
rates to the consumer would ho reduced in proportion.
In reply to a question, Mr. Hill
said if the work was done from this
city, as the company intended it should,
it would bu finished in 15 or 18 months.
If done from London or San Francisco
it would be cheaper, but Westminster
would not benefit to the same extent
if the pipes are not manufactured in
the city. He hnd looked into the mat-
tor closely and found by close calculation that the oity would Eave $8,000
annually, in insurance, after tho wnter
works are e*;iablished.
Mr. PeUoek said the scheme t,truck
him. very favorably. He came, to the
meeting thinking the city ought to own
the water works, but tho proposition
wai so f-ivf-rablo that tho eity could not
help hut benefit by it. Heals-, thought
the city would bu hampered iu raising
large, loans while no wator works system wns in force or under construction.
Mr. Ifoy expressed himself in favor
of a water works system, but declined
to cxproM an opinion at present. There
were many thingH to bo taken into
consideration and until ho hnd given
the subject mature Ihouitht he deemed
it advisable not to make any statement.
Mr. Calbick had seen no better proposition than tint laid before them.
He would say nothing further tluu
that the city must be supplied with
water without letipflf time.
Mr. Shiles though the scheme required consideration. Hu saw the
necessity of a water works system, but
ho required to know more of the project beforo coming to a ikJiiiKo Qi'h*
elusion.
Mr. Douglas exproiRol himself in
favor of tho scheme.
In reply ta n question Mr. Hill said
the main pipe line would be largo
enough to supply a city of 200,000
population.
Mr. Wolfenden suggested thnt (he
main points of the scheme .be jotted
down and a motion mnde urging thu
council lo proceod in tho matter without loss of timo,
Moved hy Mr, Iteecher, seconded hy
Mr.Th'.sCi>nuinghain,thntihocomp.iny

favored by'-this meeting, beforo. 'ho

Communication*.
■TUc "STe-iys" all tlie Frnser.
Editor Columbian*.-~-Iu yesterday's
'Vanconver New-Advertise)' appears au
editorial devoted to the contemplated
improvements at the mouth of the Fraser. It is well worth the study of thoso
who are intereatod in the subject. I will
not attempt to follow tho editor nf the
News through ul! his various suggestions
—Ids "ifs" and his "buta," his doubts
and his fears—with regard to the ultimate fnturo of Westminster; but I must
say that he has iu this article shown that
he is nu adept in the art of using the
Queen's KngliBU to conceal his thought*?.
Iu the fh-st place he begins by statimr
that the appropriations made by the
Dominion govornment ia "probal*ly*'aa
much aa could he expected under the
riitaimstancc.H. Nuxfc, lie coiiomdea that
it will scarcely he Bulliciont to commence
the uccossnry work with, and iu that
connection, after "proauming" that there
is uo difference uf opinion ns to the
necessity of thu work, he wind ■ up by
prediction that "for some time to come
it will not be possible to obtain a sufficient appropriation to complete the im*
provements. Then he aaya he would he
"■glad" if he could take a more "sanguine" view of the matter, aud appeals
to thu member for the district, and nil
others who know the true state of the
Dominion exchequer if he is not about
correct in his prognostications. Next he
says that it is "possible that some persons" may not be favorable to any proposition towards the completion of tho
contemplated improvements, and that it
might uot be prudent to undertake the
risk of incurring such liabilities as would
be needed to plncc Westminster as a seaport ou the Paoific; and what is more
discouraging still, he tells the Royal
City|that she now lias to compete against
one of tho most "energetic oities to be
found in tlio Dominion and against a
"port" excelled by none anywhere. The
lust sentence of this curtain lecture (for
it must have been written late at night)
is the moat bewildering of all, viz.: "But
it behoves tho business mon of Westminster if they desire to see tho matter accomplished within a few years, to take
steps towards the prosecution ot tho
work on a scale commensurate with the
magnitude of the undertaking." If tlie
editor and mouthpiece of that "energetic
city"—Vaucouver—has not shown ua a
way out of onr circumscribed limits, he
at lenRt deserves our thanks for opening
onr visual organs to see what he seems
to think our deplorable condition. Victoria cditora used to comfort us iu the
aome way; now it is aa much aa they can
do to comfort themselves. Westminster
needs no booming; she has been quietly
going ahead ngainst opposition both from
without and within. Ccmtox,
