A meeting of tlie ratepnyei's of
ward no 2 of tho Delta municipality was lurid at Boundary
Bay school house on March 17th, to
discuss the mjuirenients of the
ward iu road mutters, and the advisability of borrowing money to
defray the expenses of tho same,
Councillor Arthur was called to the
chair, and F. V. Raitt was appointed
secretary. The chairman explained
that the obj.-ct of the meeting was
to hear the opinions of the rate-
papers with regard to borrowing
money to pay of the existing debentures, und to obtain sufficient
moneys to enable tho municipality
to build roads to the wharves, and
to accept Mr. Guichon's offer of 200
feet frontage on the river, to build
a public wharf and warehouses
upon; also $500 cash to aid the
municipality in building a road to
the landing at his place, on condition that the road is planked by
the first of November next. Mr.
llaitt spoke in favor of a loan to
build roads to the wharves, and
also for making roads throughout
the municipality. Mr. Calhoun
had not given tho matter much attention, but considered that the
borrowing of ?2S,000 was a matter
for serious consideration, nnd that
time should be given to think over
it, and to allow all the ratepayers
who have no votes this year a
chance to pay their taxes in time to
have a vote upon it one year from
now. Mr. Jno. Kirkland also
thought that the mutter should bo
given serious consideration. If it is
thought just to tax the municipality
for the drainage or dyking of one
slough, it would only be just to do
the same with all the sloughs.
With regard to Mr. Guichon's offer,
he believed the municipality should
accept it, for fear of the land and
frontage passing into-"oTK'tr hands"
that might not be disposed to deal
so liberally with the district. He
thought it would be well to borrow
a sum sufficient to make the road
down to Guichon's, and to pay off
existing debentures. Mr. Skinner
thought tne council ought to accept
Mr. Guichon's offer, nnd borrow
enough to pay off Ihe present loan,
nnd to repair the main roads. Mr.
Bootho said if it raised the taxes
any higher than they are at present
it would be better to leave the borrowing alone. Mr. Alexandor be
lieved it would be well to borrow a
small amount to repair the present
roads, and enable the municipality
to accept of Mr. Guichon's offer,
Mr. Jordan thought a small loan the
best. Mr. Wm. Goudy said as far as
he is concerned he thought a small
loan tho best, and, that Mr.
Guichon's offer ought to be accepted.
Mr. Win. Arthur, jr., was in favor
ohi large loan if the money should
bo spent on the two principal roads,
and ho thought it would be wise to
secure the landing offered by Mr.
Guichon. Moved by Jno. Kirkland,
seconded by J. Oalhoun. That it is
the opinion of this meeting that in
lieu of borrowing $25,000 it would
bost subserve the interests of the
municipality for the council to borrow .?3,000, 9900 to bo applied to
Inlying off existing debentures, .'500
to be be applied to repairing the
existing road from Math's oorner to
Mr. McNeeley's wharf, and the
balance to be applied in planking or
gravelling the road from Bath's
corner, on section line, to Mr.
Guichon's lauding. Motion carried
unanimously. Moved by Mr.
Goudy, seconded by Mr. Kirkland,
That the counoil be requested to
take immediate steps to ascertain
the different rates of material, and
whether plank or gravel roads are
tho cheapest. Carried unanimously.
Moved by Mr. Goudy, seconded by
Mr. Alexander, That the minutes
of this meeting bo forwarded to the
Columbian" for publication. Motion
carried, A vote of thanks was
tendered to the chairman and sec
rotary, and the meeting adjourned.

LAST KIOHI'S DESPATCHES.
AILAXTIC Mill SERVICE.
London, March 19.—The decision
of the Canadian government respecting
the Atlantic mail service is awaited
with much interest here. A settlement of the details of the proposed
imperial subsidy for the Pacific service,
is at a standstill pending this .decision.
A strong opinion is held in well informed circles that unless Canada rises
to the occasion and establishes the best
possible service on the Atlantic, the
recognized advantages of the Csnadian
route to the east and Australia will be
seriously undermined, while not a few
declare that the placing of merely a
secondary service on the Atlantic will
at once put Canada out of tho running
as a mail route to Australia.
COMMERCIAL UNION IN CONOBESS.
Washinoton, March 19.—The discussion of Mr. Hitt's commercial union
resolution in the house committee on
foreign affairs on Thundaydisclosed an
indisposition to formulate anything
touching the fisheries question at this
moment when the treaty is pending.
There is perfect willingness to clothe
the president with power to name commissioners to hear any proposition that
Canada might make tor commercial
union and to co-operate with her representatives in forming a practical
plan, but no oue was disposed to have
the house part with or relax their constitutional control over ail revenue
measures. The report reads as follows:
" Our commercial relations with Canada (rave recently awakened a deeper interest and receivedamore thorough discussion than ever before on both sides
of the border. The tendency of pub-
lie opinion is plainly toward the enlargement of the trade between the
two countries.. In Canada the movement has advanced from what was a
few years ago an effort for partial reciprocity to a wide expression in favor
of unrestricted intercourse and commercial union. The evidence of the
fact is abundant." Continuing, the roport quotes Mr. Joseph Chamberlain
who in a recent speech said: " Commercial union with the United States
means unrestricted trade between the
United States and Canada and a protective tariff against the mother country. If Canada desires that, Canada
can have it." Tho joint resolution now
submitted docs not contemplate any
action un our part at present but whenever the Dominion shall havo declared
a desire for commercial union with a
common tariff liko internal revenue
taxes, liko duties on articles imported
into either country from abroad and
no duties ou the trade between the
United States and Canada, then the
president is authorized to appoint three
commissioners to meet thoso who miry
be designated to represent Canadu in
order to prepare a plan for commercial

& We regret to observe that our co-
temporary of tho Vanoouver News
still persists in violating the laws of
his country by the publication of
raffle advertisements. If he will
read sec. 2, chap. 159, consolidated
statutes of Oanada, 1880, he will
perceive that by doing bo he breaks
the law and makes himself liable to
a penalty of 820. It is very much to
be regretted that anyone occupying
a public; position should lend his influence to a scheme which sets the
civil law at defiance, and does not
promote the public good.
It is to be hoped the council will
not let this season pass without taking stops to establish a public market in this city. Unless better
accommodation is provided speedily
for those who bring in the products
of tho farm for sale, we shall cortain-
ly lose a considerable amount of tho
trade wo have hitherto onjoyed. In
Vnncouver there is a good demand
for all sorts of farm produce, and
this demand is likely to continue,
for Vancouver produces scarcely
anything itself. Whore people sell
their produce they will very likely
buy their supplies. One of the complaints made by farmers is that
there is no one in this city who will
give them a fair price for large lots
of produce, and they are forced
either to accept a small price or to
hawk it about the city. If a market were established it would bring
buyers and sellers together, and the
difficulties of disposing of large lots
would be very muoh lessened. We
are of opinion that the city will be
handsomely repaid for the expenditure necessary to the establishment
of a market, and no time should be
lost in establishing it either.
Mr. Bole has introduced a bill
into the provincial legislature for
the better observance of Sunday. We
have not yet seen a copy of this bill,
but understand that it proposes to
forbid all secular business on Sunday, except, of course, works of necessity. Such a bill will meet with
the approval of a large proportion of
the people of this province, for we
are glad to know tbat the sentiment
in favor of Sabbath observance is
steadily growing. It is the misfortune of most new countries that the
pioneers, finding themselves far removed from the associations and
restraints of more civilized communities, are apt to drift into habits of
carelessness with respect to moral
and social questions. British Columbia has not been an exception to
this rule, but a great change has
taken place since the opening of the
railway. A large proportion of the
solid people who have arrived in
this province during the past two or
three years are accustomed to see
the Sabbath respected, and are not
willing that it should be desecrated
by practices which aro contrary to
the moral law. There are not a few
in (his country who profess to hold
the utilitarian view that what they
conceive to bo the interests of "business " must be protected even if they
conflict with Sabbath observance.
Such a doctrine is contrary to the
spirit of Christianity, and those who
hold it declare, in effect, that they
know better than their Maker did
what is good for man. As long as
we acknowledge the authority of the
divine law, let us follow its precepts;
but if we reject that authority, lot
us not pretend to.be a Christian nation.
We stated yesterday that au attempt was being made to break up
the "trusts" which have become so
powerful in the United States as
seriously to threaten disaster. We
we are glad to observe that a similar
movement is proposed for Oanada.
The Canadian monopolies are not
called " trusts," but "combines;" but
whatever may be their name, their
nature ia identical. The object in
view in all cases is to prevent competition and put up prices beyond a
legitimate figure. Notice has been
given in the house of commons that
a motion will be submitted for tlie
purpose of enquiring into the working of these organizations, and this
enquiry will doubtless be followed
by such legislation as the circumstances may suggest. There is no
doubt at all that the high customs
tariff prevailing in both Oanada and
tho United Stetes is the chief protection of these monopolies. In the
oase of sugar, for example, it has
has been shown that the prices fixed
by the Canadian sugar " combines"
are so high that this article may be
imported from England and sold
with s profit at the "regulated"
prioe after paying a heavy duty.
The time will probably come when
people will get their eyes open to
the fact that it costs just as much
to pay tribute in the shape of ous
toms duties as in taxes. But there
il danger that the monopolists may
grow io powerful in Canada as to
make it extremely difficult to procure such legislation as will give the
needed relief, This is what has already happened in the Unitod
States, And Oanada is rapidly following the dangerous example of her
big neighbor.

The moment of the supremo dignity in

A Wonderful Human freak.

'a small colored  settlement ten miles

ago gave birth to a boy child that nearly
6 ared them all to death. The infant
was healthy and well developed when
born and has continued in good con*
illtion since, but the strangest part is its
yulur,   it isdividod into two halves, as
t were, one representing tho Caucasian
iind iho other the African race. One
side, from the centre of its forehead down
is as black as coal, while the other is
(••lually white and fair. Another monstrous freak of the same nature is shown
by the fact that tbe Caucasian side has
thick lips and flat nose, kinky hair am'
black eye-in fact, all the African characteristics—while the dark aide bas fan
und- good features, blue eye aod soft
sdky hair. It is io perfect health ana

Celoi In t Skeleton's Mouth.
A Geneva correspondent mentions a
•discovery that woe tecently made at
Amlermatt, in the Canton of Uri, by
some workmen who were excavating
near the old church well known to
louriats. While digging they suddenly
t .line upon several skeletons, tnd on
disturbing them therelfell from the lower
jaw of one two gold coins ol the retgn of
Charles VIII of France, atthe end ofthe
fifteenth century. Further search revealed the presence in the bony band ol
the skeleton of a piece ot linen rag in
i xcellent preservation, and on unfolding
the ran the men brought to light lOsilver
coin] of the sixteenth century, of the
time of Francois I of France, 'it is supposed that tho skeleton is that of a
soldier who fought at the battle of Marig-
nau, and tbat having stolen somo money
and put the gold coins in his mouth for
s - lety be was immediately aftor killed on
thu field.
Frugal Frlncoii Blimcro'j,
Princess Bismarck is one of tho most
frug. 1 housewives. Her husband, the
pnnre, is not addicted to liberality either.
he has an income of about $126,000 a
ye.tr and is frequently made the recipient
ol legacies in amounts small and great
from patriotic admirers in every part of
Germany. The other day a man In Po-
seu left bim in his will 2,000 marks-
about $500, Tho princess, in speaking
of this to t friend, said: 'Tin so glad
Bismarck got the money just at this time,
whon he needs a good steady horse to
ride. He always refused to buy one ou
the ground that be couldn't afford it.
Hut 1 told him to use this 2,000 marks
for the purpose. It comes in handy,
doesn't it?"
it may be interesting to note, perhaps,
tbat the princess always* uses the plain
"Bismarck" when referring to her husband in the company of friends.

IT 13  A  RKMABKABLE  FACT  that  Dt',
Thomas' Eclectric Oil is as good for internal as external two. For disease uf
the lungs and throat, and for rheumatism,
neuralgia, crick in the back, wounds and

much trouble is saved by having it always oa hand. Jacob Loockmun,^Buffalo,
says he has been using it for rheumatism.
He had such a lame back that he could
do nothing; but one bottle entirely
cured him.
North aad Sonlli.
The boautiful weather we are at
enjoying to-day contrasts very favorably with the terrible blizzard raging
at the present moment in the south
western states, in a country lying 700
or 800 miles south of us. With a temperature of 52 ° in the shade, a warm
sun, clear sky, and a mild refreshing
breeze, it would be impossible to find
on the continent a more desirable spot
for a habitation.

six beautifully colored plates. As thu

The Vancouver Bond.
We are glad to see that the councils
of Vancouver and Wostminster have
jointly requested tho government to
gravel tho road between these two
cities. This road has cost a considerable eum cf money, and is one of the
most important in tho province, but
during a great part of the year it is in
a very bad condition. Nothing but a
good coat of gravel will make it satisfactory; and in the long run it will bo
cheaper to make a thoroughly good job
than to keep patching it up from yenr
to year.
Wesl minster Leads!
A gentleman from New Hrunswick,
representing a lurge lumbering compnny on the St. John river, lias been
in the city lately with a view to securing a suitable site for tho erection of
extensive saw mills, which will cut
lumber for tlio export trado only.
Tho gentleman in question mudeii tour
of the coast and caiuo to the conclusion
that Westminster was tlio moat convenient nml suitable point for the
erection of tho mills. He hns i.ow
gone east to report, nnd it is probable
something definite will be done in tho
matter during tho next six weeks.

Wharfage InipreverornlH,
The cannerymeii, merchants nnd
ranchers along tho river aro making
large additions to their wharfage room
this spring. Gilley's pile driver has
been kept incessantly nt work for some
time past, and orders aro slill uu hand
which will keep the Gilley Bros, vory
busy until the middle of May. The
pile driver has been nt weak on the
North Arm for some weeks nnd eamo
up to-day to mako an addition to the
ferry slip: Aftor this job is completed
the Rustler will go up to the first tunnel on tlio C.P.R , near Agassiz, nnd
drive n row of piles to prevent tho rond
bod boing washed awny. After this
will follow n week's work for the
Wellington cannery, two weeks for tliu
Deas Island cannery, a week on W,
H. Vianen's new wharf and a week ou
a new wharf, next to Vianen's, for
Mr. J. M. McLennan. From this it
will be seen tho improvements aro
quite extensive, and indicates much
livelier times on tho rivor.
A Possible Uprising.
It will bo remombored by those who
had to do with Indian matters after
the late rebellion that the Indians attributed their fail uro to the fact that
they had deferred action until too lato
in the season. They had miscalculated
the power of tho government to move
troops at that season of the yoar, but
said the next time they would rise
enrlier and got in till thoir work before
it would bu possible to bring any force
to oppose them. From .information
conveyed by somo of the Indians to
friends whom they wish to warn
against danger ahead it appears to be
their intention to bo governed by the
experience of the past to the extent
that they wilt begin operations at an
earlier date than they .did tbe last
time, and if this plan remains un*
changed the timo for action is closo at
hand. The dnnger of trouble in tho
near future is forshndowed in so many
ways and vouched for by so many people thst it would be crimin-il to neglect
taking proper precaution to uvert
trouble, if possible, or if it does come,
to stamp it out with promptitude and
thoroughness that will effectually pro-
vent a repetition of the offense.-

After noarly Bevou dnys patient
waiting through train service has been
opened up through tho snowbound section of Ontario lying along tho north
shore of Lake Superior. A passenger
from Toronto states that the train on
which he arrived hnd beeu eight days
out from Toronto. A breakage of a
rod on an engine caused the first delay
near North Bay; the next obstruction
came iu tho shape of a broken trestle,
a few miles west of Heron bay. The
accident to the freight train nt this
point, particulars of which have already been published, was caused by
one of tho cars jumping the track just
before reaching a trestle 35 feet high.
A snowstorm set in, while the train
was delayed here, and between Hamilton and Peninsular stations the road
was fearfully blocked, snowdrifts towering above the tops of the cars, and
packed in the rock cuts so hard that
ordinary engine pressure had no effect
in clearing tho lino. Friday, Saturday, Sunday nnd Monday were spent
at White Rivor, excepting a few hours
during the latter day, when tho train
went ten miles, got stuck iu a drift,
and had to be drawn back to Whito
RivcrTuosday morning. On the afternoon of Tunsday a start was again
mnde. Port Arthur reached on Wednesday and the train arrived here
safely this morning,—Winnipeg Snn.
