Th. w«t«» Wnk. Mwu,
A few days ago we mentioned
briefly that a prpposal bad been submitted by the Coquitlam Water
Works Oo. to supply the city with
wator. As the matter is one of very
gnat importance we need offer no
apology for giving particulars of this
proposal for the information of all
citizens. The company Bays it will
engage to proceed »t once with the
construction of a system of . water
works designed to supply tbe city
by gravitation direct from Ooquitlam
lake, and to construct such works on
a scale of tirsUclass efficiency, subject to the inipootion end approval
of a competent engineer, and to have
them completed within 18 months.
The city is to be allowed the free
use of hydrants for fire purposes,
sprinkling the streets, and flushing
sewers on condition of giving to the
company the proceeds of an annual
rate of one-half of one per cent on
the value of assessment roll. Provision is made that the eity may, after 30 years, purchase the works
within the city limits, together with
the right of independent access to
the source of supply over the ground
covered by the company's right of
way, at a valuation to bo determined
by arbitration. The company .states
that the source of supply, Ooquitlam
lake, is 435 feet above sea level, and
the water will be delivered at an
average height of 100 feet above
tide under a maintained pressure of
64J lbs. to the square inch. Tha
length of the main will be about
80,000 feet. The capacity of discharge will be 2.50 cubio feet per
second, or sufficient to supply the
ordinary draught of a population of
21,000, or of a population of 5,000
while meeting a fire draught of six
hose streams throwing ISO cubic
feet of water per minute. It is
claimed that a pipe of thi-rbapatity
will be amply sufficient for preifent
requirements, and will maintain
good pressure on the higher levels
while drawing directly on the source,
while by constructing a service
reservoir at a future time, ahd drawing on the pipe to iti full capaoity,
it would fully serve a population of
; 30,000. The cost of the works is
estimated at $160,000, of which
about $75,000 would be disbursed
in this city for labor and supplies, as
it is the company's intention to import plates for the pipes and have
them bent and riveted here. From
enquiries among insurance agent)
the company finds that the amount
paid for insurance in this eity laat
year was about $17,442, and this
year insurance rates have boen advanced about 50 per cent' Assuming that these rates are governed by
the national board of underwriters,
out of overy 35 cents of this turn 10
cents is a deficiency charge levied by
the insurance companies to cover
tbe enhanced fire risk to whioh
Westminster property is subjected
on account of the inferiority of the
water system of cisterns only as
compared with a gravitation system.
That is, the rate is 40 per cent
higher than it would be if the city
had an efficient gravitation system,
The average rate of insurance paid
last year is stated to be 1.764 per
cent, which, increased by 60 per
cent, gives an average for this year
of 2.646. By removing the deficiency
charge already noted, this would become 1.887, showing a saving of
three-quarters of one per cent. The
value of insured property in the city
is $996,700, and a saving of j of
one per cent on this sum would
amount to $7,574; and It is assumed
that the increased protection and
diminished loss would be worth as
much more to those who decline to
insure on account of the high rates.
It is also claimed that the value of
all c|ty property would be increased
from 10 to 25 per cent, by the establishment of water works, which
would of itself be sufficient to pay
the water tax for 30 or 40 yean.
If the city pays $4,750 a year for
the water works and thereby saves
§7,574 in insurance, besides other
advantages stated above, the company assumes that It would be an
economical arrangement for Westminster, The proposal is accompanied by a letter from the ex-mayor
of Truro, N.8., in whieh he states
that aa a result of the establishment
of first-class water works in that
town all insurance companies reduced their rates from one ta one
and a half per cent Private residences which previously paid 1 and
li wero now paying from i to j,
wbile buiinen places and stocks
whioh paid 2_ were now paying 1J
toll.

Lohdoy, May 12.—The feet that
the Emperor Frederick is dying fast
bas been known tothe British cabinet
for some time and undoubtedly has
acted ss a powwful Incentive ia hastening England's far preparation., of
which the secretary of war, Hr. Stanhope, gave an outline on Wednesday.
Many cf England's best soldiers and
sailors, among them Lord Wolseley
and Lord Charles Beresford, however,
claim that the steps being taken to
place England in a propm state of defence, are entirely inadequate. They
say that so long ss the army and navy
ore governed by civilians, nothing else
could be expected. In plain English,
this means that Mr. Stanhope and
Lord George Hamilton are acting
afjainit the judgment of Lord Wolseley and Lord Charles Beresford, and
that i the public are being hoodwinked
in supposing these lighting officers approve of what is being done and that
the whole arrangement aims at securing, not the safety of the oountry but
the reputation of Hr. Gosehen as a
financier, A number of tories are
already asking whether it would be
worth wbilo locrificing one or two secretaries of state, and even so promising
a Jonah as Mr. Gojclien, if by so doing the country could be made ssfe
against the invasion whieh the war
office experts have for some months
been stating u at present a practicable
undertaking.
IBS DIFINOlaAOItAtlOR.
London,'May 12.—In the house of
lords to-night Viscount Baidinge
asked the government aa to the truth
of tbe reports that England is defenceless, that her guns are thb worst In the
world, and that many of her ships and
fort, are unarmed. The Duke of Cambridge denied that the country was In
immnmt dfpgsr. The sensational ar-
Vow In the press purporting to have
emanated from the highest authority
had not emanated from him. Lord
Salisbury said that the government
must observe the utmost reticence in
such matters; nothing oould be more
inune than to exnlain to the world
England's strength and tbe natun ot
the precaution she waa *akjaa> . Ike
faet was there hsd been a aonsiderable
increase of preparations In recent years.
Since 1884 the army has been increased from 181,217 men of all anna to
212,470. Lord Salisbury strongly condemned Lord Wotseley's recent speech
at a banquet Lord Wolseley ought
tc have spoken in parliament, when
his statement could havo been answered and refuted. The tone of panic
whioh pravaded the language used oat-
side of the parliament was not shared
by the government, which was fully
conscious that to disregard the defences of England in the present state, of
the world would be a very grave dereliction of duty. In the house of commons Lord George Hamilton, In reply to a question, said that the Russian squadron in the Pacific consisted
cf one ironclad and four cruissca, and
wu not equal either in numbers or
strength to the British fleet on the
China station alone.

Some Iminrlniii Schemes'
On tlio first page of f this papar
will be foiind a statement sotting
forth tho conditions on which the
Cojuitlam Water Works Oo. proposes to supply a first-class system
of watet'workll'to this city. The
cdtapany has seiJured a most valuable franchise,- and ia in a position
to furnish as good a scheme of water
supply as can be found, perhaps,
any wliere in the world. Coquitlam
lake contains a volume of water
sufficient tb supply a city as largo
ns San Francisco, and the water is
of the vory best quality.. The source
is 436 foet above the sea, giving ample pressure for ull purposes. These
facta being indisputable, tlie only
matter upon which'thero is room for
discussion is tiio terms Upon which
the company proposes to carry out
its scheme, We are afraid these
terms Cannot be accepted by the
city. The; value Of our present assessment is about $800,000, and one
half of one per cent, on that would
yield $4,000, whioh is equal to nearly 21 per cont on the-cost of the
works. But our assessment will
not long remain at that figure.
Judging from what has taken place
during the-past year, and from the
proepects now before us, our population and assessment may reasonably
be expected io increase at such a
rate as will make the proposed rate
of one. half per-cent yield a very
large sum—a sum sufficient to pay
five or six per cent, on the cost of
thewatteworks, uWethihk,'there-
fort, that a'limit should be fixed,
and that the'company should consent to accept a certain sum each
year in consideration of furnishing
the city with water. Bofore accepting any proposal, however, it ought
to be ascertained definitely whether
the insurance companies will agree
to moke a reduction in rates suoh as
followed the establishment of water
works at Truro, N. S., and at Monc-
toiyand at Qolumbus, O. Thiscould
bo ascertained by application to the
companies themselves. We think
the water works ought to be owned,
or at least controlled, by the city
corporation. What this city wants
mon than anything else is an increased jiermenent revenue! ' The
water wor\% will supply that in the
course,of a fow years. . Let the
franchise of the water works company be purchased, or lot tlio city
take enough stook in it to carry a
controlling interest, and then tbe
foundation will be laid for future
income of a permanent kind. But
while'thi»:*w**,ter scheme- is being
considered, there arc Other matters
of great importance Which must not
be overlooked. The Westminster
Southern Railway soheme has now
assumed a form of reality; but this
railway oainptcwsj the river without a (bridge; and a substantial bridge
wiridjutlotsbtmoney. The city
may be expected tp bh. called upon
to c^_4rjl«to aimetbing towards that
scheme, i! We can give no bonus to
any railway from the south that
doe*-not undertake a bridge over
the riVSr?and that bridge must provide fpir ordinary tfiiffio as well as
for the passage of trains. Whatever
bonuajnay be required for the bridge
will become an additional charge upon the eity'a income. Itispossiblo,
also, that the Atf may 'be called tip-
on to do something towards hasten-
infrth* improvements at ther mouth
of Vnur Kiver. Notwithstanding
the MgetioyOf the situation, it is
now doubtfUHf the govemmoht Will
this year appropriate a sum sufficient
for tMWtopletion of that important work. IJdtits cOiupletion without iMx is <a\ ntatfev,;bf the:gi*eate$
imporiiiiice, ti); W«3tmin9tcr, and
possibly tl>e city may find it weces-
sary-.tofumuh for tbe.timo boing a
portion of the required funds. If
we *r* toaWtheimprovement of the
rirtlj tifni* itWer'. constrtetJrtrt ' of a
bridge, and the establishment of
water .works, it will be manifestly
neousary fou us to manage carefully tbaMnmrcm within Teach, and
to 'OWfatder well all 'the circum-
staneta before committing ourselves
to SnJ'jSkWiWla** Mbeirio involving
a considerable oharge on our' revenue. It wi)l be necessary, therefore,
the* *Jl'*ln*e scheme* shall be con-
Eid—ttkgethta. If we go into the
watar wo*k»-withoutthinkingof the
railway, the bridge may rnit'be built':
If we commit-oufselves to the bridge
or th* tirmt improvements, the water
woftH'sfayyW'left: bnt none of
the#;*etomM can be abandoned
wltifailWoiitif affecting the city's
interests. Both the water works
and the Frater improvement schemes
might b* managed by commissioners
nppofotad by tho city council,  who

Ho was in tlio vicinity of Washington
Square into at night on liis way lo catch
a t-treet car to return to tlio tit. James
Hotel, whero he wns stopping. In going
along In a vory dark portion of tho streot
he was accosted by a man who inquired
the timo ol night.
Unsuspecting as he always was, he
took his wntch from his pocket and
handed it to tho mnn with the remark:
"Look for yourself; I'm uenr-sighted."
Tho man looked nt Gov. Marmiiduko
in astonishment, nnd then catching a
good took at his faco said, "Tlinnk you,
tioveruor," .and 'handed him; buck tho
Wntch.
Tho Governor was greatly puzzled to
know who It was, but beforo- he had
time to inquire tho niitn hurried out into
darkness. Some time niter this a do-
.toctivo recalled -this incident to the
Governor and told him thnt tho man
hnd stoppod him with tho intention of
•Stealing his watch, l-ut he was surprised
at the Governor handing it to iii in, and
concluded that Mnrmnditk-- suspected tho
man's gamo and delivered llie watch up
so readily to prevent being knocked
down, and then intended to shoot ihe
thief as he made of. As he was hesitating what to do' ho rccogni ud the »Governor as a person who had pardoned
him. The thief was arrested thnt very
night, and, after being convicted for robbing a man, ho told tho tl tea live of his
experience with tho Governor. •— AVio

'   A Spanish Boll Bins.
Tho bull ring of Granada, liko most of
those in the larger cities of' Spain, is a
vast nmphitbeatro, built of wood, nnd
capable of- seating perhaps - . •■ ll persona. By accident we came to ths , -uge
structure in the oourse of our iiiiitiiil.r-
ings, nnd we -were conducted through: it
by nn attendant. In tlio stnbl-s wero a

and blotches of blba I, whicli hud sp.rrted
Irom the wounded auimnls in various
combats. As tho samo timo that tiieso
were pointed out to us it wss c plained
how, in the practice of the no! hi art of
bull-lighting, a horso would often have
his sides ripped open hy au in uriated
bull, and tlie plucky steed would nevertheless go on sometimes with thu fight.
We wero then conducted tothe chambers whero tho nistn. lores dressed themselves, and were kept tho trappings for
ornamenting the horses, nn.i. the apparatus for provoking the hulls. Among
the articles of the latter sot were long
poles with sharp ipikes In the end,
musks, dummy horses and various other
devices and instrua cuts of torture, cunningly adapted to urouse the wiath of a
peaoably disposed bull and convert him

Value ol CoMkou Fish,'
The ''common varieties" ol fish - include the yellow perch, rock bnss, hull
head, sucker, pickerel, and the like,
'.these fish, though they do not command
attention ol writers and fish culturrsts
that trout, salmon, black bass, while Iish
and shad have, still hold a very import-
taut placo in the fish supply of tho country, and furnish pleasuro and food for
many thousands ot people. The class of
fish abovo referred to do not ro ;ii|ro I ho
care and attention tomnk. them plentiful that is necessary. With tln-fnor or
game varieties. .Artificial propag.llon ia
not required, and about the only thin,
really needed to keep a plentiful inpply
in Ihe waters to which Ihey ore adapt- J
Is to protect them white they sre in tlieir
spawning bods, and fish for. tliem only by
angling by hand with hook and lino, in
this way you get the greatest amount oi
actual enjoyment in the capture of tho
Iish, and who is there thatdoes not relish
a mess of fish caught by himself better
than those procured in any other way?
Another pqint concerning theso common
fish is tli.it ns a rule they aro easily
■ caught, aiidft requires no especially lino
tackle to take-them, though tho -most
successful fishermen are careful in Iho
arrangement ol tlieir hooks and lines,
aud also keep their hook properly sharpened and well halted. A common cane,
poll such as can be purchased for a small
amount, will be found equally as serviceable asa high priced split bamboo, jointed rod. These fish also Inhabit largo
rivers, hikes and bays, which are aedssi-
bli* tothe millions They are also foiiiid
in tbo canals to which thousands resort
In summer for the rapture of a lness 61
fish, In such waters as these tho finer
padoe of fish cannot lim and thrive, .

Lokdoh, May 12.—A good many
other obsorvors aro asking themselves
whethor Prince Bismarck's exoesslvo
tenderness towards Russia is calculated
either to conciliate that power or
strengthen tho general polioy to which
Prince Bismarok is committed. Whatever he may do or say, ho will always
be hated aud distrusted in Russia.
Russia knows he made tho Austro-
German alliance against the wishes of
the late Emporor, nnd that the alliance was dlreoted against her. Prince
Bismarok will never win Russia except
by sacrificing Austria, It is no wonder
Austria looks on uneasily and wonders
whether Prince Bismarck means to
throw hor to tho wolves ob he declared
himself read} to do with Bulgaria.

At Vanoouver yesterday morning
Mrs. H. A. Berry, noo Alice Btow'ay,
died quite suddenly, and the remains
were buried in this oity- to-day. Deceased wa. a daughter of our fellow
citizen, Mr. Wm. Qoway, and was well
known to a largo iiuraber-of our readers. She was the flrst female student
to enter the Collegiate and high school
established in thi. city about 7 yean
ago; and after receiving instructions in
that institution for 18 months, she
presented herself at tha -provincial
teachers examination at Victoria and
carried off a provincial flrat-class A.
At that time she was only 10 years of
ttnd we believe she Is tho, only
who has Ukon such a Ugh oer-
ito In tho province sinco the cer-
tificste was made to include classics.
The funeral cortege atrived from Van.
conver at 1 o'clock and ww attended
by about 20carriaftaof people, the majority of whom wote Masons, of Which
order Mr. Berry Is a member. The.
funeral sermon wss presched by 'the

reformed and tht remains taken to the

Editor Columbian.—I fully concur in
L. A. Agosslz's letter that appeared in
The Colombian of tlio Oth lust. As to
the high school controversy, may I ask
under what plea the parents who have
had their children educated therein, at
the cost 6f the publlo, can claim the
right? I believe each of them, more or
less, wero in a 'position to defray this
oharge; then why should tho poor man
be tuxeil that the rioh nun's child should
have a free high school education? The
Hon, John r.irbson'. late aotion ln thi.
matter deserves the thanks of the community in trying to remove tliis incubus
from our school systom.
Yours truly,

Late Chairman Westminster

Kamloops, Ilth May, 1888.
[Both Mr. Agassiz and Capt. Pittendrigh seem to have succeeded in'avoiding
the Only point of objection taken either
by Tin Columbian or the peoplo of thi.
city. If tho government hail required
tho oitles to support tho high sohools in
wholo or in part, and these schools had
been placed under municipal control and
management, tho .chomo wonld have
presented a very different aspect. But
tho 'new sohool act requires the cities to
pay one-third the cost of maintaining the
piihlic schools—not tlie high schools.
The Columbian has always maintained
that high .chool. .hould not Ire free, but
tho new school bill does not impose dues
—It leaves that entirely optional with
the school beards. We ore afraid our
correspondents do not fully understand
what'they are writing about.—En.)
