The meteorologist of tbe Piodu-
Midi, in'ftance, attaches muoh importance to the systematic observation of clouds at his mountain ob-
surviitorjr, nnd states that such ob-
servntiotis sinco 1880 have enabled
kini'to issue local weather predictions which nave afejiured great accuracy.
In a recent lecture, Mr. J, Huth-
inson expressed the belief that arsenic may produce cancer. Its effeot
upon the skin is most marked, but
it may spoil the complection, instead
of improving it, by marking it muddy and unsightly. It may also cause
soft corns to grow on the palms of
the hands and soles of tbe feet.
The quantity of ice that sometimes adheres to the branches of
trees has been greatly over-estimated, according to Mr, 0. E. Bes-
sey' In a freezing storm last February a fine box elder 26 feet high,
with a rounded top fully 25 feet in
diameter, was brilliantly covered
with crystals, whose weight did hot
exceed 300 pounds,
Tho banana is mentioned by Dr,
B. W, Richardson as one of the best
of foods. It may almost be looked
upon as condensed milk, its composition being 74 per cent water, 20
per cent fuel, 6 per cent flesh for
mors, and *7 per cent mineral; while
milk contains 86 per cent water, 9
per cent fuel, 4 per cent flesh-formera,
and *7 per cent mineral.
The Electric Abe.- -Prof, Elisha
Gray remarks that electrical science
bus mnde a greater advance in the
last twenty years than in all the
6000 historic ypar§,OTK5<ji|ig. More
is discovered in one day now than in
n thousand years of the middle ages.
We find all sorts of work for electricity to do. We make it carty
our messages, drive our engine, ring
our door bell, and scare tbe burglar;
we take it as a medicine, light our
gas with it, hear from it, talk with
it, and now we are begining to teach
it to write.
First Bocks and First Lim—
Oldest of all the formations known
to geologists, and representing perhaps the earliest rocks produced after
our earth had ceased to be * molten
mass, says Sir ;Wn*. ^Dawson, are
the hard, crystalline and much contorted rooks named Laurentian,
which are largely developed in the
northern parts of North America
and Europe and in many other regions. So numerous and extensive,
indeed, are the exposures of these
rocks, that we have good reason to
beliovethat they undorlie all the
other formations of our continents,
and are even world-wide in their
distribution. In the lower part of
this great system of rocks, which, in
some places at least, is 30,000 feet
thick, no traces are found of the existence of any living thing on the
earth. But in the middle portion
of the Laurentian, rocks are found
which indicate that there was already land and water, and that the
waters, and possibly the land, were
already tenanted by living beings.
The great beds of limestone, which
in later formations are mostly organic remains, and of iron ore, such as
are deposited through the agency of
organic solvents, are indications of
this. Besides such evidence, certain
forms known as Bosom Camdense
have been recognised in the Laur
ention limestone, which indicate the
presence of at least one of the lower
types of marine animals. Where
unimiil life is, we may fairly infer
tho existence of vegetable life ns
well.    	
Au Ingenious Substitution—Little Oharlie usunlly counts the strokes
of the clock to tell what time it is.
Not noticing the other day when it
commenced to strike he said to his
mother: "Mamma, whnt time did
tho clock stike?" "Shame," said mama ; "Oharlie must talk plain—say
"strike.' " after a moment's silence
he looked up brightly and asked :
"Mamma.   What time was it when
the clock hit I"—IKorW.

Tho unccrtanity concerning titles
is thought to be a cause of dullnoss
in New York real estate. Many of
the old family properties were settled
in a careless manner, and in some
instances heirs have reappeared,
causing perplexity and confusion.
Qustave Berwald has been arrested in New York for swindling.
Among those whom ho has swindled
is Fiesident Cleveland, from whom
he obtained $2.50 through a tale cf
distress.
It is claimed that the thumbscrews aro applied to prisoners at
Havana in older to extort confessions.

be postponed or cancelled.
Pexson, wbo saw the emperor at
Charlottenburg, preserved the paper
on which the emperor bad written:
"One of the most mitigating circumstances of my severe trial is to know
what is said of me in French papers.
I certainly endeavored by every means
in my power to mitigate the hardship
of the war when I was at Versailles,
but still the war was very rigorous as
it must always bo to the conquered.
It gives me fresh faith in human
nature to find how the French forgot
the evil I had to do and only remember the good deeds. Their present
state of feelings makes me hate war
more than I over did in uy life." The
Paris papers all express deep sympathy
for the bereaved empress sua sorrow
at Ihe death of the emperor, to the
beauty of whose moral nature justice
is dono.

DISMAY   IN   FBANCE.
Pahis, June 16.—Under the oover
of assumed confidence, the death of
the emperor has caused a feeling here
very much like dismay. Rightly or
wrongly, the new emperor is regarded
as being animated by a bitter hatred of
France, and a desire to render his
reign memorable by fresh laurels,
culled upon the battle Geld at tho expense of his heriditary foe.

Br. Thomas' Kleotric' Oil commands a
large and increasing sale which it richly
merits. I have always found It exceedingly helpful; I use it in all cases of

calm the pains of a broken leg with dislocation of the foot, and in two days I
was entirely relieved of tho pain.

On taking control of the Columbian on the 1st of this month, we
Stated that we should concede to all
a free expression of opinion, within
prudent limits, on all questions affecting tho public interest. A question of much public interest has
come up—we refer to the high
school question now beforo our citizens. We have allowed every scope
for a free expression of opinion, and
it has been largely taken advantage
—those who held that nn injury was
of, but heretofore by one party only
being dono Mr. Stramberg by his
dismissal by the trustees, and demanding an investigation, and that
charges, if any, should be plainly
stated, in justice, as they said, to
Mr. Stramberg. We ourselves, as
our readers will have noticed, have
been inclined to hold these views.
To-day we givo a large spaoe to the
samo subject, of Mr. Stramberg's dismissal. On another page will be
found a communication, "On the
Other Sido," by "Parent," a long
statement by the secretary of tbe
school board, Mr. T. J. Trapp, in
which he, reluctantly, as lie says,
recites the frequently demanded
grounds (no charges, so-called, are
laid) of the board's action, and also
a petition to the school board in
favor of Mr. Stramberg, signed by
the majority of the names, it is said,
of those most interested. In regard
to the statement of Mr. Trapp, secretary of the school board, although
it may be considered rather plain on
some points, it must be remembered
that such a statement has been re
peatedly called for by friends of Mr.
Stramberg, in these columns, and
also that the trustees have boen publicly charged, both directly and by
inference with being governed by
wrong and unworthy motives, The
letter by " Parent" demands perusal as coming from " the other side,"
that is, in opposition to tho majority
of the communications which have
appeared on this important question.
The petition, with signatures appended, speaks for itself. This
whole matter should be carefully
considered by our citizens, and especially by parents most interested,
without prejudice or malice, and
when an opportunity is given on
Monday, at the election of school
trustees for the ensuing year, to en-
, dorse or condemn the action of the
board, let everyone entitled poll
their votes intelligently and dispassionately.
been-spared. Even amid his pain
and suffering he found time to inaugurate some of those, and collided
frequently with the iron chancellor

pctuous and "ambitious, n splendid
soldier, nndfrtrlie calls himself, a real
Hohenzollorn, like his grandfather, a
bolievor in-s-the "divine right of
kings," and like him, too, hiorethan
liko his fathor, embodying tho spirit
of a past and' despotic age. lio has
some kingly' and noble qualities
withal, but is not likely to prove a
friend to the liberal measures which
his father would have furthered had
he lived. Many things have beeu
said of Prim* William—that he was
unfilial, bold, unscrupulous, reckless,
revolutionary, just waiting to slip
into his father's shoes, that he might
overturn Europe to gratify his own
cupidity and ambition. These reports may bo the haverings ol sensational journalism. The, young
man, speaking for himself the other-
day, said; " I urn in overy way as
peaceful as the Emperor William
was, and for the peoplo to imAgine
that I ever dream of plunging into
military adventure, or that I even
tacitly approve of anything that
could lead to a disturbance of the
peace of Europe, is absolutely absurd." He also spoke, it is said, in
tho most affectionate terms of his
father. Lot the young man have a
fair field, and let us hope he may do
credit to his noble ancestry. Before
leaving the subjeot, oiie naturally
turns in imagination to. the two
widowed empresses . of Germany—
Augusta and Victoria—both be--
reaved within four months. An interesting comparison, too, can be
drawn between Britain's Victoria
and her daughter, the sorrowing ex-
empress A'ictovia of Germany. Both
are renrarkable women, exhibiting
in a measure the same noble traits
of heurt and intellect, and both havo
lost, in their prime, whnt must be
said to bo rare in royal households
at least, noble, faithful and affectionate husbands, after the rearing of
large families of princes nnd princesses. Tho eyes of the world will
be on Germany for the next few-
months at least.

Frederick the Good has become
immortal, and the throno of the
Hohenzollerns receives its third occupant within less than four months.
On the 9th of March last, at the
age of ninety and over, passed peacefully nway, after an eventful reign
of nearly thirty years, that sturdy,
imperialist and staunch soldier and
man, Emperor Wilhelm I. of Prussia. Grand, Btern, conservative,
tenacious of his "divine right to
reign," but kind withal, conscientious and just, a perfect soldier, and
a statesman, he towered a central
and imposing figure among his European cotemporaries, and embodied
in his person and his conduct the
feudal despot of a past age with the
milder constitutional monarch of the
nineteenth century. He was full of
days and full of honors, and when
the last summons came and was
obeyed, though beloved and mourned
of Germany, the national sadness
could not but be mitigated by the
fact that for more than the allotted
span he had served his day and generation. Whilo the Emperor William was succumbing to his final illness, his son, then the Grown Prince
Frederick, was struggling in the premonitory clutches of the fatal malady
which it was feared at the time
might carry him off ere his aged sire
had breathed his last, He rallied,
however, and lived to ascend the
throne, on his father's death, as
Frederick III,, Emperor of Germany, For a little over three
months he has fought bravely and
patiently a desperate hand-to-hand
struggle with death in a most distressing snd painful form. The
hopes of Germany and of the world
were at times raised that he would
yet come off victorious. Not moro
than a week since the daily accounts
of the apparently favorable progress
of the royal sufferer excited expects
tions the most cheering. But these
flattering hopes proved deceptive,
and the .terrible phalanxes of the
grim destroyer, which had but been
drawn off in a feint, advanced with
sadden and remorseless swiftness
npon the fated victim and crushed
out hia useful and promising life in
its prime (at the age of fifty six) on
the morning of the 15th June inst.
If Olt Emperor William held a
warm place in the affections and
respect of his subjects, the Emperor
Frederick might bo said to havo been
loved and adored by all Germany.
A noble specimen of manhood, chivalrous, gentle, brave, puro in spirit
' and life, a soldier and a statesman,
as his father, he embraced and adopted all that was praiseworthy, elevating and good in the traditions of tbe
past, but combined these in a remarkable degree with n comprehensive and progressive liberalism suited
to the-tawdw* demands of a modern
age. lytuch was expected of him In
the way of national reforms, nnd
much would have been done had be
A Sluggish Liver
Causes tbe Stomach and Bowels to bo*
come disordered, and the -whole aystem
to suffer from debility. In all such
cases Ayor's Fills give prompt relief.
After muoh suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles* I havo finally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Pills.
I always find them prompt and thorough
In their action, and their occasional use
keeps me in a perfectly healthv condi-
tion.—Ralph Wet-man, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-flvo years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Pills.
Since that time I have never been without them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and increase the appetite, more surely than any other medicine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayer'a
Pills for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I Buffered from a Torpid Livor, and Dyspepsia, for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and my tongue coated. I
hod no appetite, suffered from Headache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Fills, taken iu moderato
doses, restored me to perfect health.—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer's Fills are a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate tho digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove, tbe horrible depression and despondency resulting from
Liver Complaint. I havo used tliese
Pills in my family, for years, and they
never fail to give entire satisfaction.—

A Dude, an Irate Old Man With a Wart
on Bis Tfos© and a ring Hat. .
1 "Tbe stories I could tell of queer people
I meet oa the trains would fill a book/',
said a train guard on the elevated railroad
the other day.    -*■*•*■
"Not long ago," said he, "a large,
heavily built man entered tho car and
sank into a seat and began to mumble
and growl like a dog with a sore head.
He was an odd looking specimen, too.
His face was fiery red and covered with
huge warts that glowed as if thoy had
been seared with a red hot iron, the ono
on his nose being especially noticeable.
"He attracted the attention ol everybody in the car, and I was just about to
have him removed, as I thought he was
crazy, when two dudes entered the car
and sat down directly opposite him.
"As they took tbetr seats he started up
and cast his eyes on one of them wi th such
a mad glare that the dude trembled nnd
turned pale. ,*
"'You're the man I bave been looking
for for three months past,' exclaimed tho
man with the wart on his nose, 'and now
yoa contemptible, insignificant rat terrier, I'm going to pulverize you right
where you sit.'
"At that he raised his cane and hit tho
dude a crack on tbo top of his plug hat,
forcing it down over his ears. At that
moment we drew into the station at
Twenty-third street, and both of tho
dudes fled from the car.
"After they had left a gentleman who
had got on the train at that station familiarly greeted he large man, whose manner became so affable that you would
, never have recognized him as the eamo
man had yoa not seen the change made.
"1 learned afterward that the large man
was ahead bookkeeper of a large mercantile house down town, and the dude was
a commercial college graduate who bad
been employed as his assistant and who
had during the head bookkeeper's absence
neglected to make somo entries. Before
the old man eamo back be became
frightened and resigned.
"The old man found the books in a
complete muddle and had been working
until 10 and 11 o'clock every night for
I nearly three months, when, on his return
homo that night he chanced to meet the
dude as I have stated.

then down they came, one after another,

A ISVSSV AHD A MHAM WiVlL.
Who Is Undoubtedly the rather of I'rac-
■ .' ' tleal Jokes..
* A king was engaged to a young lady
who wns beautiful, but so stupid that she
could' leam nothing. So he agreed with
the devil that lie should give her the
power of lenrning and remembering what
ahe had learned, on the condition that lf
at the end of threo years she could uot tell
the devil what his namo was she should
belong to him. He then told tho king
his name.
Amid the happiness of his married life,
as his bride became more and moro intelligent, the king forgot lt. So, when the
third year was drawing to an end, he became uncomfortable nnd tried hard to remember it, but without success.
One day, when he was wandering disconsolately in the woods, he heard chattering aud peals of laughter proceeding
from a hillock, and, aa he listened, he
heard the following song r
,  ."Henwliogivomeftfoi'iiiiame
Have many a catrio to do that name;
Ho mercy to tbo Bonis I show
When I claim of them wlint Iliey owe.
I walk, lilrc a Dorr, round about,
And many lucrr'Mght have 1 put out;
Harm and hurt to folic havo I done,
And my name Is I'lgilln-Rlgdon."
The namo at once struck tbe king as
being the same he had heard before, so ho
told it to his wife, and thus enabled her
to free herself.
In all these oases the devil appears as at
least equally honorable with the man,
and sometimes even displays that simplicity which, as Plato thought, often
goes along with uprightness of character.
Sometimes, indeed, he, like the men
with whom he contracts, avails himself
of tho letter of a promise, of words rather
than meaning, So once when a girl over-
fond of danctngsaid, "I would dance with
the devil himself were he to call mo out,"
he at onco appeared and danced her to
death,
■' Birttlreinedkoval devil's sense of humor
often displays Itself in malicious practical
joking, for the devil is undoubtedly the
father of practical jokes.
"It is worthy of record," says tho historian of the coming of the Franciscans
Into England, "that when the. Brothers
were iu the-house in Cornhlll, the devil
came ln a visible shape and said to Brother Gilbert do Vyz, while he was sitting
alone, 'Do you think you. havo escaped
me? You shall yet nave'this,' throw
upon him a handful of lice and vanished."

A Word to Husbands.
Love 'and appreciation are to a woman
what dew and sunshine nre to a (lower.
They freshen and brighten her whole lifo.
They niako her strong-hearted and keen-
sighted in everything affecting tho welfare of iitr home. They make her to cherish her husband wheu the cares of life
press heavily upon him, and to bo a very
providence to her children.
To know that her husband loves her,
nnd is proud ot her and believes in her;
that even her faults aro looked upon with
tenderness; that her face, to one at least,
is the fairest iu tho world; that the heart
which to her is the greatest and noblest
holds her sacred ln its innermost recesses
above all other women, gives her a
strongth and courage, and energy and
sweetness nnd vivacity which all the
wealth of the world could not bestow.
Let a woman's life be pervaded with
auch an influence, nud her heart and mind
will never grow old, biit will blossom and
sweeten and brighten in perpetual youth.

A Deluded Britisher.'
"I must tell you," writes a New York
correspondent, "how an amiable lady
from the 'right little, tight little island'
was deceived by her trusted hut wicked
nephew, who had lived in this city some
tlmo before his aunt came to pay him a
visit.
"Sho, the aunt, had heard much of our
watermelons, and was anxious to see and
taste one; so in the height of the season
oil went the nephew to Washington Market, and there procured the largest melon that ever grew.
"At dinner, the whole affair having
been previously arranged, this huge specimen was placed on the table, when all at
once another nephew exclaimed to the
host: ••        ■'•
'"Well, I should have thought you
would have got a good-sized melon today, when you knew auntie has.never
seen one, and that Is such a miserable
littlo thing!'    '
"Poor auntie looked at tho fruit with
staring eyes, and it was afterwards found
that sho had written in her note-hook,
'Melons grow gigantic in America!'"

"Bobby," cautioned his mother, "the
Bishop is to dine with us to-day, and you
must be very quiet nt the table. I want

Very much impressed, Bobby ate his
dinner ln silence, until hla plate needed
replenishing.
"Pa," he said, devoutly, "will you give
mo some more string beans, for of such Is
the kingdom of heaven?"

A tale comes (rom the far north,

carcasses are found frozen in,the ico
end that the Indians chop them out
and feed the meat to their dogs.
These carcasses are at well preserved
as if killed but yesterday, although
they have lain for who Imows how
many thousand years in a solidly
frozen state. Undoubtedly, these animals existed coeval with the glacial
period and were indigenous of a tropical
olimete, therefore we must reason that
thb period came on almost instantaneous; all living animals were killed by
extreme cold and before tlieir flesh
could putrify, it became frozen and thus
ie preeerveo to ns to-day.— Juneim

Early Vegetables.
We were made the recipient this

Mr, James Wise, on Royal avenue.
The basket contained strawberries,
raspberries, gooseberries, currants,
(white and red), turnips, parsnips,
beets, lettuce, radishes and carrots,
Both vegetables and fruit were sufficiently matured for tho table, nnd such
a variety ht for use so early in tho season not only speaks highly for the attention bestowed on Mr. Wise's garden but it speaks volumes for the climate we live in. The Columbian acknowledges  the gift  with  heartiest
thanks.

The Coleman failure.
The assignees of tlie bankrupt firm
of W. T. Coleman & Co. havo completed thoir revision of tho statement
of the assignor, W. T. Oulemau, aud
their report on tho valuation of the
assets will be made public ut cuco. It
is learned that tlio estimate ef the
aisets, as made by the assignees, iB
much smaller than that furnished by
Mr. Oolemun, aud on many valuations
the figures aro greatly reduced.' It is
stated that the San Rafael ranch, valued by Mr. Coleman at $800,000, has
been estimated at $400,000. A considerable reduction haa also been made
in the valuation of the Burri-Burri
ranch, which stands in the assets for
9116,000. In the aggregate the value
of the assets has been reduced over
$1,000,000, leaving the assets and liabilities about tho same. It is expected that after the creditors have received the report of the assignees Mr.
Coleman will probably make a. proposition for settlement, which, if agreed
to by the creditors, will enable the
firm to easily iiquidnte its old debts.
The Camaaa*
The Royal City Mills reoeived a
despatch Ust night stating the Camaua
would leave Victoria on Sunday evening and arrive off the. sandheads at 4
o'elook Monday morning. It is probable a number of tugs will meet her at
the mouth of the river and escort her
to Westminster. She will arrive in
tho eity about 8 -/clock, and wo hope
every good citizen will turn out and
give the Camana and Capt. Gordon a
right royal reception. Flags will be
flying from every flagstaff in the city,
and the Royal City Mills will be handsomely decorated. Somo time next
week Capt. Gordon and the managers
of the Royal City Mills will be tendered a dinner by tho city council and
board of trade, at which Capt. Gordon
will be presented with a hondsomo
piece of silver plate. The presentation
of the plate is a capital idea, nnd it
will provo our lliomugh appreciation of
the* now era of prosperity which is sure
to dawn on the city with the arrival of
the Camana. Tho presentation of an
address is all very well in some instances but in this case something more
substantial is required.
A Modern Fable.
A few months ago four young mon,
citizens, agreed to go "botching."
They seeured a nice little cottage in a
"boom" locality, and started housekeeping in good shape. One proviso
in the co-partnership articles, to which
they jointly and severally agreed,
stated that the first one of the four
who took unto himself i\ wife should,
as a sort of bonus or premium to the
matrimonial enterprise,have the house,
with all the goods, furniture, ohattels
and effects whatsoever, pertaining.
Ono of the young men aforesaid, with
an eye to business, determined to
jump at the chance even if the Price
were doubled. So he became strongly
attached to a beautiful Burr, and in
due time the Price was doubled, but
he got the house just the same, The
three young men who got left—several
hundred dollars worth of furniture and
effects were put in the house, we believe—aro now "kicking like steers."
They conBider.it a hard Cose that they
should have to vacate such Tidy quarters and that if it hadn't been for the
Price being doubled they might all
have stayed in the nice little cottage
Forfar longer a timo than they did.
The Columbian tenders congratulations
to Mr. and Mrs. Price.
Thoroughbred Stock*
Mr. Jacob \V. Miller arrived from
Hamilton, Ont., last niqht, bringing
with him 16 head of thoroughbred
Jersey and Ayrshire cattle. Ten of
the cattle are Ayrshire and the other
six are Jerseys. The Ay rehires were
bred on Jardine's stock farm, neor
Hamilton, Ont, and are all pedigree
animals. Mr. Jardine's herd of Ayr-
shires is llie largest in Canada, and
some animals lately sold by bim have
brought fabulous prices. Tho Ji-r.-ey-i
are shid to be the finest ever brought
to the coast, and they are certainly
splendid animals. The bull, Jersey
Boy Rex, sired by Canada's Johu Bull
and dammed byOakland's Cora,though
only 8 months old, in a beauty. At
several cattle shows in Ontario last
autumn it took first prize. Canada's
John Bull, sire of Jersey Boy Rex, is
said to be the best Jersey bull in
America, and has a pedigree as good as
any in the world. Cocotte, a beautiful
little Jersey cow, the prettiest in the
lot, has an official record of 21 lbs. of
butter in one week, on average of 3
lbs. per day. The Jerseys were ohoien
from the celebrated herd uf Vallancey
K AII H. Fuller, of Hamilton, Ont.
This herd numbers 400, every ono of
which is pure bred. Mr. Miller will
take these cattle to Viotoria and will
start a breeding farm somewhere in the
neighborhood of Saanich, The cattle
will be on exhibition at the 0. P. N.
wharf, till Monday, where Mr. Miller
will be glad to give any information regarding them.

On ihe Other Side.
Editor Columbian.—A person reading The Columbian would suppose that
the trustees who lately decided to discharge Mr. Stramberg were moved by
either ignorance or malice, aud that public opinion was solidly aguinst them.
This is not true. That kind of public
opinion which'seeks notoriety seems certainly to be against the trustees, but I
have found among some of our betit citizens a decided cimviution that the contemplated change would be for the good
of the high school. The trustees,, whose
action eo many-of yonr .correspondents
condemn !afe Mossi'S."T.i;J. Trapp, Geo.
Turner and J. A. Calbick. What ground
has any person for insinuating that any
one of these gontlemon is influenced by
malice ? They are certainly tlie most efficient members of the board of trustees,
and I for ono am willing to give them
credit for perfect honesty of .purpose,
Now, who are those who have been so
officiously throwing dirt at them ? With
the exception'of Dr. Kent, I do not know
them at all as persons whoso opinions are
entitled to serious consideration. Pr.
Kent is a new-comer, who has evidently
obtained his impressions from others, and
until we know who these others are we
cannot tell whether his utterances are
worthy of attention. It may bo perfectly true that Mc. .Stramberg is] a retiring,
educated gentleman; but it may be true
all the same that he is not a successful
teacher. There are more things than
scholarship and ecntility required in an
instructor. Has Dr. Kent visited the
high school often enough to learn whether
proper discipline is enforced ? Does ho
know whether tbe teacher is able to command the respect and confidence of the
pupils under his care ? If some very
respectable persons have not beeu guilty
of much misrepresentation, the trustees
have ample grounds for the action they
have taktn, and ought to receive the cordial support of those who have the interests of our high school at heart.
Much sympathy is being expressed for
Mr. Stramberg under the circumstances,
which is quite natural and proper; hut if
the interests of the school require a
change, no personal considerations must
be allowed to interfere with tbe discharge
of a public duty. It is held that the
trustees must prefer a charge and produce proof. Before whom is the oharge
to be laid, and who are to be the judges?
If tlie trustees are of opinion that Mr,
Strainberg's methods are of a kind not
calculated so produce the best results,
they not only nave a right to mako a
change, but they would not he doing justico to the trust placed In their hands if,
from personul considerations, they should
refuse to take aotiou. A trustee is not
bound to make specific charges against a
teacher, and it is often better to make
no statement at all. Are we to have
confidence in tbe three trustees responsible for this action, or ure wo to be led
into some foolish thing by tho irresponsible statements of persons whoso opinions
are open to much question T Let the people go Blow, or thu interests of our school
may be sacrificed.—Yours, kc,
Pahbxt.
As 1,'n-itlkltd Letter.
Editor Columbian,—I hnd hoped that
it would be unnecessary for me to make
any comments upon what haa beeu agitating the publio mind during the past
week in reference to school matters. But
the feeling has grown so intense in some
quarters that 1 feel it desirable to keep
silence no longer. It is quite a common
thing, as you aro aware Mr, Editor, for
the public to get hold of tho wrong end
of a story and excite the popular mind
by enlarging upon a fow false impressions,
to such an extent as to lead a crowd of
excitable people into very serious error.
In this way men have been lynched bofore now and the bodies of tho victims
have been cold in death before the confidence men, who had held the rope,
knew anything about the other sldo of
the question or had waited to ask thoih-
selves If it was not possible for them to
be mistaken. In this way, It seems to
me, sir, that some members of the school
board art. iu danger of being ill-treated.
by a number of gentlemen, who, if they
were In the shoes of the school board,
would have done precisely the same as
they havo done. These gentlemen, upon
tho generality of subjects aro wise and
cautious, but in this instance have really
without cause, risen lu a body to demand
that, ns thoy call ft, justice bo done. In
thu first place, no injustice has been
done. The facts of the case are as tol-
lows: During the past two years It has
been thought desirable by some of tho
, l-rooiuhera of the sohool boara that achsngo-
should be made In the principal ot the
high school, .and from what 1 knew of
the feelings of the board as expressed by
themselves tivelve months since, I had
concluded that a change would be made.
So in order that no unnecessary publicity
Bhould bo given to the matter I volunteered myself to cull upon Ut. Stramberg
aud ask him to resign. This I did with
the result that he would not entertain
any suoh friendly proposal, but was prepared to fight out the matter, in consequence of tho board not having lodged
any complaint in writing, as lie considered it was their duty to do. Up to tliis
time I considered that it was a unanimous feeling with the board that tbe
change should be made, But so soon as
Mr. Stramberg's removal was spoken of,
other reports wero circulated in connection with it, that had the result of changing the minds of somo of tlio gentlemen
on the board, and Mr. Stramberg was allowed to retain bis position. In consequence of this Mr. Clute, ono of tlio most
ollieiont members and chairman of tho
board, resigned. I was exactly of Mr.
Cluto's opinion, but did not resign. So,
you see, Mr. Editor, this is no new thing.
Mr. Geo. Turner was elected In tho room
of Mr. Clute, and was, when elected, a
supporter of Mr. Stramberg. Mr. Turner is well known in N.W. as a gentleman of great fairness and uprightness,
and he, aftor due consideration of the
facts of tho case has some time since
come to the conclusion tlmt it was necessary, for the benefit of the school, that a
change should be mado. As far as I
knew it had been the feeling of all of the
board who had taken any interest In
school matters, that this change had to
be made, and it was hoped that Mr.
Stramberg would resigu without the
board having to do an unpleasant duty.
On the 14th of March Mr. Johnston was
requested to find out from Mr, Stramberg
what his intentions were with regard to
continuing on at the higli school, There
were 4 trustees present at this mooting.
Capt. Pittendrigh was away and Mr.
Ross was not present, but no ono thought
this of any material consequence. All
appeared to be unanimous on the subject. Mr. Johnston, it seems, did not
have an opportunity of asking the question and so the matter went on until tho
7th inst, when a meeting was called.
Then were three members present; the
others had been notified, but were not on
hand, and business was proceeded with.
After other matters had been attended, to
Mr. Turner and the writer was deputed
to wait upon Mr. Stramberg and find out
what his intentions were as to the future,
and if it was not his intention to resign,
to ask him to do so. This wus done, and
the board meeting Mas resumed and tho
secretary instructed to notify Mr. Strum-
berg that his services would not be required after the present term, four members of the board being present. This
was done in due course. The foregoing
are the unvarnished facts in connection
with this so-called case of injustice,
Tho board have taken this step, believing it to be in tlie best interests of
the sohool. They are the parties tlio
public have appointed to look after,their
interests iu this direction and surely no
one individual will dare to say that it is
from personal motives that this change
is contemplated. What have any members of tho board to gain by dismissing a
teacher ? Surety that would bo a mean
spirit that would for any personal feeling
try to injuro a man liko Mr. Stramberg
in his present state of health.
Tills has been a painful piece of business from the first and the hoard tried to
handle it in such a manner that tho least
harm possible should bo done, But they
have no credit accorded to them, and In
consequence of the would-be champions
of justice and liberty and I know not
what else, rushing heedlessly to the fight,
things arc done and said that ought never
to have been done or uttered, and
wounds aro mado thut may take years to
heal.
It would be much easier for mo to full
in with publio opinion aud allow matters
to take thoir course, as so many do in
this peculiarly constituted city of ours,
But I do not happen to he made of that
kind of stuff, and "peace at any price"
is by uo means my motto.
I am only oue of six school trustees
and I speak for myself alono, and without prejudice in thi particular, when I
say that I consider that Mr. Stramberg
hns outlived his usefulness in the New
Westminster high school) that unfortunate investments, added to ill-health,
have totally unfitted him, both physically and mentally, for the duties of the
high school. I regret, more than I ean
express, that I, as a school trustee,
should have to admit that our high
school teacher has become to t great extent the laughing stock of the pupils of
that school. I consider that my duty aa
a trustee is to look after the interests of
the scholars and not after the interest of
the teacher.
There has been a great deal said by
different gentlemen through the columns
of your paper und statements made that
appear very glowing in their way, but
there is the othor side to tliese. Look
them up for yourselves-1 have no object
in view, and therefore no time to waste.
I also notice a letter written by someone
and signed by Wm. Ross, as school trustee. The public know Mr. Ross aud can
draw their own conclusions.
There is just ono more point, Mr. Editor, that I will mention before drawing
this long and tedious letter to a close.
Lost night a friend of mine, but an opponent in this direction—not, I am led
to believe, for the reason that tbe
board have done wrong but, rather, because the board aro by this action supposed to bo playing into tho hands of a
gentleman iu nigh position, who is credited with being opposed to Mr. Stramberg—while speaking of, the alleged injustice that was beiug done to M.\ Stramberg, stated tlmt a lady who he knew
wss attending the high school just now
and who had a great deal of experience
with normal schools and teachers, stated
that it was perfectly disagraceful the
way in which tho boys and girls of the
high school treated their teacher. This,
coming as it does, from the public side
of the argument and from a champion of
Mr. Stfamberg, should bo sufficient proof
to an unprejudiced mind that the
board have done their duty even
if there wero no other reasons for tho ao*
tion. How can a teacher who has neither
the respect nor the control of his pupils
be expected to snoceed ? Much Is said
about the lack of home discipline. Wo
admit tho truth of all that has been said,
nud hence the double need of a teacher
who is ablo to make un at school what
has been negbcted at home, In conclusion I wonld say that however imperfectly I have filled the position of secretary
to tho sohool board for the post 6 years,
I havo at any rate tried with a large majority of the trustees that havo during
.that time sat upon the school board, to
do my duty regardless of publlo opinion.
The board have had one object in view
only, that has been the efficiency of the
school; and they have the satisfaction of
knowing that our publio school staff is
second to none in B. O. We would also
have the high school in the same position
and the votors on Monday noxt will decide this question for themselves; I purpose taking no notion whatever In the
matter,   lt is a thankless thing to serve

the public, but having worked for noth
ing I cannot well be disappointed.
Thanking you very much Mr. Editor for
the space you have given mo and trusting
that It may be a long time before it will
be necessary to trouble you again, I
remain, yours truly,
