Moutif I,i'Iiman llrtialcrs.
A corves] urn dent says that on the
night of tho 30th December a most in-
interoKtiucr dobato took place in the
Mount Lehman Literary and Debating
Society. It was tho first debate. Mr.
Sutherland, president, occupied the
chair. The subject for dobato was,
Whether minerals or animals were
im-ist. useful to man. Mr. L. Pogue
conducted the debate on behulf of
minerals, and Mr. E. King on behalf
of animals. After a spirited debate, it
was decided that tho iiuiinnls had it.

reading dining the evening, and Mr.
W. Marsh sang a comic song. The
next debnto will take place m two
weeks, on the subject, Whethor has
war war or intemperance killed tho
most men I Mr. Sully takes intemperance, und Mr. .T. Morrison will con

Not tppiTctnldl,
We nre uudor deep obligations to
the Columbian for its excellent ndvico
oti I ho subject of what wo ought not
to have enid nnd what we should now
nay about the president of the council.
Did our cotemporary ever hear tho
story about a littlo dog which barked
and Biiappod very fiercely at the bear
which a man was holding nud praying
that somo one would help him to let
go 1-^-Vancottvcr News. No; we never
heard the story, and wo confess ourselves unable to catch on to the application of it just here. Our salt water
cotemporary may bo content to represent himself as a "little dog which
barked," but the Columbian objects
to inasnuende before the public as a
bear. Wu arc sorry our cotemporary
could not accept our "excellent advice. " When he hnB grown oldor in
years and experience he may possibly
l'*ok back with sinccro regret because
he permitted his own judgment to
lend him into unnecessary umburrnsB-
menta.

Coun, Curtis called for three cheers
for Mr. Dickinson's election by acclamation. The theers were given with
a tiger.
On motion Mr. James Cunningham
took the chair and Called upon the
candidates and members elect to air
their views and intentions.
Mayor Dickinson in a - very appropriate speech thanked the people for
this example of their confidence in
him. He had worked his best for the
city in the past and would always continue to do bo. Ho spoke at some
length'on,tho improvements required by
the city and promised to forward them,
and in particular the Southern railway, to the best of his ability and
opportunities.   Applause.
Mr. H. L. DeBeck on being called
on said he wus in favor of numerous
improvements throughout the city and
he would give his most cordial'support
to any scheme brought up that would
advance the city's interests. The
Southern Railway and the water works
were the most important schemes - and
he would vote.for the loan pn their
behalf. After thanking the citizens
for electing him by acclamation tbe
speaker took his seat amid much applause.
Mr. Pearson said bis opinions were
much thesame as those ex pressed by the
previous speakers except in regard to
the loans. If $150,000 was voted the
exact amount to be devoted to*' the
different hnprp>'d^,^yfA^e pearly stated, jtn,d wnut was voted for one
should not be used for another. If
elected he would do his befit- for the
city,    ■ ■ - * ■ ■ ■ ■   ; * -
Coun.Reid promised that if re-elected he would do his best fur his ward
and for the city generally. The Southern R. R. was of so much importance
to the city that he would favor raising
no loans until that matter wss settled.
The water works and sewerage questions were important matters but the
railway should come first.
Coun. Elliott said his views were all
so well known that it was unnecessary
to review them. What he had done in
the past he would continue to do in tha
future. The Southern railway would
receive his eupport along with the
water works and sewerage systems if
he was re-elected.
Mr. S. H. Webb said he came out
against his will, but it was at the ra*
quest of a large number of influential
citizens he was persuaded to become a
candidate. As in the past, if elected,'
he would do his level beet to keep the
brigade in an efficient condition.
The meeting then broke up.

Some Substantial Advantages.
While Tve are reviewing the operations of the past year, and presenting some of the circumstances upon
which hopes are built for a prosperous business in 1888, it may be in
place to refer briefly to some of the
advantages possessed by the city of
Wostminster as a conture for trado
and manufacturing. Those advantages have already been set out in
the Columbian, but a review ut this
season of the year will be quite in
ordor. As a shipping port Westminster has an advantage over all
other seaports in British Columbia
inasmuch as it is situated on a fresh
water harbor, where the tide produces very littlo effeot. The cost
of constructing and maintaining
wharves in salt water is enormous.
That irrepressible enemy tbe teredo will destroy wharf timbers in
from threo to four years, and render
the strongest wharves useless. Tho
teredo does not live in fresh water
at all: hence, a wharf at Westminster will remain sound for 30 years,
while ono in salt water has to be
renewed at least every 4 years. It
is well known that ocoan-going vessels prefer to load and unload in
fresh water, because the barnacles
and other impediments which cling
to a vessel's bottom will relinquish
their hold in fresh water, and she
goes out as clean as if she had been
scraped. It will pay vessel owners,
therefore, to accept a cargo to or
from a fresh water harbor at a less
rate than from a salt water harbor.
The absence of high tides makes a
material difference in the cost of
loading and unloading. In most of
the salt water harbors the tide rises
so high that the ship is either away
above or below the wharf, and the
rapid handling of cargo is difficult
and expensive. At Westminster
no trouble of this kind is experienced.
The tide rises and falls only about 6
feet, and the cost of discharging
and taking in cargo is materially
lea than on any salt water port.
Where a large busines is transacted,
and large wharf acoommodatlon is
required, the difference in cost between a fresh water and salt water
harbor would amount to a very
considerable percentage. There is
no city more favorably situated than
this for local and foreign trade. We
are only 16 miles from tho Straits
of Georgia, and we are right on the
Canadian Pacific Eaiiway. At preaent the depth of water at the entrance of the river is not sufficient
to admit vessels of great draught,
suoh as the China steamers. The
channel, however, is from two to
three feet deeper than it was before
the commencement of the improvements now going on, and when these
improvements have been completed
there is very little doubt but vessels
of all classes will be able to come
up without difficulty. This will
enable our saw mills to ship their
surplus lumber to foreign ports, and
goods imported by vessel will be
laid down without transhipment.
But the river is valuable chiefly as
a means of communication between
the city and the farming eommuni
ties of the district. A large proportion of the farming lands lie on the
•other aide of the river, and produce
can be brought to this city without
transhipment. There is no other
market of any extent which can be
reached with such economy. Far-
men on this side of the river have
a choice between tbe rivor and the
railway. The Wostminster Southern Bailway will probably be built
before the end of the present year,
and it will make connection with
the 0. P. R. at this city. This will
place us in direct communication by
rail with the fine townships of Surrey and Langley, and with the
whole American railway system,
and will make Westminster the
most important railway centre in
British Columbia. Wo have a daily
train service over the main line of
the 0. P. R., and a train twice a
day to and from Vancouver. We
have two lines of steamers to Victoria, twe to river points, two steamers a week to Nanaimo, and small
steamers constantly running to
other points. At Vancouver, which
il only 12 miles distant, and with
whioh we are connected by rail, by
water, and by two stage roads, wo
ean avail ourselves of steamers di-
reot to Japan and Ohina, San Franoisco, Portland, and Puget Sound.
Freight rates to Westminster from
east and weat are, as a rule, the
■ame as to Vancouver. As a shipping port, we have no superior
in the province. The facts above
stated make this city an excellent
point for manufacturing, because it
Baa not only first-class facilities for
obtaining raw material and shipping
manufactured articles to outside
places, but it is in the centre of the
finest agricultural district in the
province, and is easy of access from
all parts of the district. It is also
the natural point of supply for the
fisheries, and is surrounded with
millions of feet of the finest timber.
Westminster is the most central
eity in the provinoe, considered
with itspeot to population and re-
■ourees. This fact has been recognised by both federal and provincial
governments. Here are located the
penitentiary (federal) and the asylum (provincial). Here also are the
Dominion land office, the mainland
central prison, the fishery  inspect
or's office, the central telegragh
office, and a number of other public
institutions. Tho disbursements
for salnrios and maintenance of
government officials and institutions
in this city amount lo not less than
#100,000 a year, of which about
$40,000 is paid by tho provincial
government and £60,000 by the
Dominion. The value of the product of manufactories and fisheries
in and adjacent to the city is about
81,000,000 por annum.

, A GOOD OMM;
Terrible indeorl was th* fate which
menaced the pns.engerj and crow of the
wrecked ship Hilda.
I.ill.i Brento, an orphan maiden, with
her widowed mint, liad takon prwsii'j
Upon tho lliMii (or America, nml lier
pretty face and wlnnimi ways had won a
warm place for tier in all hearts.
.She had brought on l-oard a white
carrier pigeon, which had ilutti>red help,
lessly down at herr feet the year before,
maimed by a shot from some unskilful
sportsman.
A billet hurl turn fastened under its
wing, but its coiUpnti were in a toujour,
unfamiliar to tlursi. who perused it, tin I
it would have been thrown crirclcssiy
away had it not liocn save.! |,jr ' illi.
Sho had nu>sed the bird buck tn i*ri!t*i.
and altbouith eventually nieiin nn to
again put tho hilli't in its place, tin tcrils
pinion, and sen I it orlh into the re 1 nn
of space, sho Ira t imt.yet schooled herself
into parting with it.
An indulgent relative had procured
for Lilla a .I. liciit-r chain ot sllv.-r, so
that she could fustcn it about onoslun lur
leg, nnd thus keop tho bird u partial
prisoner.
Lilln's courngo anrl fortitude hid beau
tho ono bright trpot'on board rlnr nt the
terrible hours of suspense which foilOWiVi
the fury of tre storm which had wrecked
the staunch ship.
No murmur crime from her lips, an I
she refused t<r lake more than just enbugli
to sustain life, saying that those who h id
tho work of pumping and inaiia^ng trio
maimed vessel needed it mora than an
idler like heiy-l'.
The sight of her gave the tailors courage.
They felt that no craft would go down
with such a freight on board.
But weary ilavs panned without sign of
succor; and, 'hungry »ud cold, their
courage sank at las'.
Lilla's cho'l.s were no longer like a
rose. TJop rivalled her name. Hut her'
eyes seonierl to grow brighter and clearer
with each passing day.
Ono morning, with only a piece of biscuit between each man anrl starvation,
Lilla threw oil the'shyness which hrd
thus far kept ba silent on the eubjeut,
and said:
"Let ua ail kneel down and pray together. There is a promise that -when
two or three am gathered in God's name,
their requests shall be granted. Wc cun
surely say tho 1-orJ's Prayer, overy one
of us."
Then Lilla knelt down, her whito bird
upon her shoulder, and her cheeks gaining a little oi their natural color in tlu
elevation of the moment.
They commenced with the first words
of that prayer-the most eloquent nui
comprehensive oue in the wholo world—
and without one exception, the other
voices added their quota of round. TIrosj
who had forgotten it, or, it may be, had
never known it, following after, word by
word.
It was n solemn and touching scene,
never to be forgotten by those who were
participants in it.
After they had riseh from their knees
again, a auddeu cry broke from Lilla's
lips, and looking towards her, to the surprise of all the cause waa seen. The pet
pigeon had broken a link of its detaining
chain, and had Uuttered off into tho blue
sky which asybeil rjbove in a seeming
sunny mockery orlhar deso'ote state,
"My bird haa deserted mel" was
Lilla's pathetic iry. And tears, which
aulTering had failed to oall to her oyer,
tilled them now.
"Don't cry, little ono. Yon'v ■ kopt
up so far, and if yottrgivir why. tir*1 - ;
not a man ol us lut will Mm'., r l>>.
Don't set us a bad example ri.,.v.
With a brave cllort l.il.u controlled
herself. But she could not put tbo sorrow for her bird out of her heart. She
kept thinking to herself.     - ,
th^hJ™Wft*'Wik,mmA
Strange that at such a time the could
bear anything in her mind but her own
suffering! But so it was, nnd it added a
keener pang to the loot of her: pet.
But marvellous to relate, when the
noonday aun was glaring down upon the
famished group, a white speck appeared
in the sky, and coining-nearer, soon
attracted attention. Then in (few
seconds, it came fluttering down, with a
coo of content, and alightod upon Lilla's
shoulder,
a iUititati fcM^**l'**»*,«'*»l*»
"It Is a good erjMOl" was whispered
around among them, "God hu not for
gotten us I"
And inspired by this thought thesailora
again turned their dim eyes across the
broad expanse of waters to see if any
sign of life should appear in sight.
Several hours went by.and thenidim
spot appeared in the distance. It grew
more distinct, and at laat proved to be a
brig bearing down towards them.
Uh, that the man on the look-out
should see the signal raised.by the distressedcrew! Tie tuipense*w«r sickening, but at laat to aaeMintv:they >were
obsorvad,-<or the brig hove-to and lowered her boats, which, mtnned by a competent crjw, were eoon propelled towards
them. They were reached after a time,
and were taken on board.
Now comes tbe wonderful part oi OU
story.
The man at the wheel waa steering ia
an entirely opposite direction from tho
ono which, would have brought his vessel
to the relief of the shipwrecked crew,
when a whltetird flew against his face,
ami fluttered its wings in such a way that
the astonished tailor did not dare to open
his eyes while.tho assault continued.
The captain witnessed the singular occurrence, and being, like all seafaring
men, superstitions, he said:
"It strikes me .that then its meaning
in this.   We must change our course-
Owing to this the course nf the brig

Perry haa never heard from him, or

says most probably some accident happened ou his ,ioming trip."
'riow long ngo was it?'' asked Lilla.
"It was about two years since."
"I found my pigeon lying almost
wounded to death just about that time,"
sail Lilla. "Anrl he had a note tied under
his wing with the oddest-looking writing
ou it I ever saw. I shouldn't wonder if
it came from the East Indies; 1 will get

Westminster Woollen mils.
One of the most important industries
established in this city is the woollen
mills, which went into operation last
year. This enterprise was proposed by
two gentlemen from the cast, named
Cunningham and Campbell, who interested some of our citizens iu the
scheme. Campbell lost his life in the
Arlington fire, and Cunningham some
time ago withdrew from tho concern.
The company is composed of local men
who have ample means to carry ou the
concern. During the past yonr it was
in operation about 2& months, during
which it turned out about 10,000yarda.
Of this a small quantity was tweed,
bnt it was nearly all flannel. The
value of the building and lot is about
13,000; machinery, 88,000; stock on
hand, $2,500. An average of 17 hands
were employed while the mill ran, and
abont 9600 per month were paid out in
waged. Additional machinery is huiug
put in so as to increase the efficiency
of the establishment, and the director')
expect to turn out 50,000 yards of
goods this year. The officers of the
company are: John Hendry, president; Jas. Punch, managing director;
D, Drysdale, treasurer; J. N. Draper,
secretary. The mills are situated on
Front st., near the foundry.

The Public Meeting.
Au interest Ins nnd Spicy Helta ie Indulged In Ity our rntepnji -».
About 200 persons assembled in the
drill shed on Saturday night in response tothe proclamation of tho mayor, calling a public meeting for tho
purpose of discussing matters of groat
importance to the city.
Hia Worship Mayor Dickinson
called the meeting to order and called
upon thoso present fo elect; a chairman.
Mayor Dickinson was unanimously
elected tn tho chair.
Mr. James Ellard was elected to act-
as sooretary.
His Worship road tho requisition
asking him to call a public mooting
ord then requested some of tho signora
to explain their object in having the
meeting called,
Mr. James Orr, M. P. P., was invitod to tako a soat on the platform.
Mr. Johnston Baid the object of the
signers of the requisition was to oall tho
people together and discuss what was
to be dono during tho coming yonr;
there wns the Southern Railway, bo-
sides other important matters that required public consideration.
Coun. Curtis waa called upon but
refused to speak until some of the
signora of the requisition had given
their views.
Mayor Dickinson said his record for
the past three years was well known,
and was patent to everyone; ho had
worked hard iu the interests of tho
city and had the satisfaction of seeing
good result from his efforts,
During his term of office the C. P. R.
and gas works had been secured to
the city and everyone admitted buth
were a great benefit to it. On general
subjects he would not speak ns every
citizon wos aware of what had been
done and they had always been consulted on matters of importance. The
Southern Railway would require all
the backbone, all tho brains and possibly a great part of tho wealth of
the city, in order to bring it into Westminster. Mr. Chisholm, who is now
on the road to Ottawa, would make it
his business immediately on arriving
thero to find out the intention of the
govornment and of Mr. Van Home, Of
the C. P. R., in regard to allowing the
road to be proceeded with. They
would hear from him shortly and the
matter would be laid beforo the people. One of the grentest wants felt by
the city at present is a thorough system of waterworks and tho introduction into the city of water wns n matter of the most vital importance. Like
the railroad it would require money,
aud if the people would vote the necessary loan, the water would be brought
in and it would not be vory long before
it would furnish it handsome profit to
the city. The $10,000 on hand at
present to conduct the city affairs was
altogether too small; after paying iho
police force, civic officers aud incidentals thore was ouly 84,000 left for street
improvements and that wns ton
ridiculously small. Another tiling
required by the city was a public market, (hear, hear,) and some efforts
should bo made to establish one. A
nice little town hall was also a thing
that should be taken into consideration; every other city iu the province
had a town hall, but that was a matter
tlmt could be dealt with in the future.
A city park, where cricket and othor
manly gomes could bo played, waa nnothor subject of importance to tho
city. Tho park owned by the government ought to belong to the city,
and virtually did, nnd something
should bo done to securo it tn us
Speaking peisonally, His Worship paid
he did not como before the people
willingly for re-election; he was not
enjoying robust health and he would
rather aome stronger hnnd should como
forward and assume tho reins. Tlie
interests of tho city required close
watching and he felt culling upon, in
the absence of a better man, to onco
again put himself before tho public
and solicit a renewal of thier votes.
((■rent applause).
Mr. Ferris, with all due deference
to the signers of tho requisition,
thought tho meeting was premature;
whon nomination day came round the
candidates for election could give their
views.
Mr. .los. Armstrong said the peoplo
of Westminster wero not pulling together, while the people of other cities
wero working like ono man; a house
divided against itself must full, aud
such would be our fate unless wo
joined issues nud pulled together. Lie
noticed that thoso who offered themselves as candidates for election woro
conspicuous by their absence; they
should bo present to give their views
Thu ferry across tho river at present
wns it disgrace to tho city and drove
tho farmers nway; thero should bu a
froo ferry across tho rivor so that farmers would be induced to come and
trado with us, there beinif no toll to
pay. He noticed that all those great
and good men, who were going to do
bo much for tho good of citv aud correct all its bad morals, wero absent,
and ho would like to know why thoy
wero not present. The city was non-
going into a suit over tho Sunday bylaw that would give the hbnery lawyers 81,500, aud ho thought tho money
could be better spent.
Mr. Kennedy sold ho had got up
nnd signed tho requisition to oblitio
Mr. Armstrong and ho had no particular objoct in doing so.
Mr. Armstrong explained his motive in originating the requisition.
Coun. Curtis thought Mr. Armstrong had at last, lot tho cut out of
the bag nntl another cat along with it.
Mr. Armstrong had boen running
round for sometime liko a tirm with a
bumble-bee in his broeohe*- and doing
considerable in thu wind blowing lino.
He had got Mr. Kennedy to get up
the requisition but had token good
care not to sign it himself. About
the Sunday Observance IW law. ho
was in favor of it and ho had supported
it from the beginning and that was
what stuck in Mr. Armstrong's crop.
Talking about grent nnd good mon,
that wns all nonsense nnd simply a
part of Mr. Armstrong's blowing.
Mr. Geo. Turner sa'd he considered
those who got up the requisition had
been making fools of Ihn people; horo
wus a meeting and nothing fn Iny before it.
Mr. Armstrong said ho did not sign
tho requisition because he woo not
down town at the time. Tho meeting
waa called to get the candidates to givo
their vjown.   They wanted the South*
orn Railway and would have it if the
people would pull together, and notwithstanding that evory city in tho
provinco was working ngainst Westminster, she was still going ahead.
He would like to call on Mr. Orr to
speak on the matters connected with
the city.
Mr. James Orr, M. P. V. after
making a few remarks on general subjects said ho thought it was the privilege of someone in the meeting to
propose a resolution ancnt tlio Southern Railway, the ferry, or any othor
important subjects, and, if carriod to
lay it before the new council for their
guldanco. As regarded tho proposed
introduction of waterworks into Westminster and the building of tlio Southern Railway he would do everything
in hia power io aid them when these
matters oome beforo the house.
Speaking in reforenco to the park he
said a promise of it had been madeby the
present government but it had fallen
through. If the matter came before
thu house ho would support it strongly. After asking someone present lo
frame a numbor of resolutions for the
guidance of the new council, thespcuK-
er took his seat amid much  applause,
Mr. Qriminor said he had brought a
resolution which he would Iny before
the meeting; it was uncut tho Sunday
closing law. He did not like to seo
saloon doors flaring open during divine
service but tho liberties of the people
must not be trampled ou. He thought
conflicting elements should bo buried
and ii compromise effected with the
saloon -keepers. IE they would closo
the front doors and leave the back
doors open on Sunday it might suit all
parties. Tho southern railway must
be brought into Westminster nud we
must all pull together to effect that
end; if it went, by us we aro done, or
rather—damned.   (Applause.)
His Worship read the resolution,
which wns to tho effect that all saloons
should close their front doors during
divine service on Sunday, and that the
back doors might be allowed to remain
open.
Mr. Curran seconded tlie motion and
said when the saloon men had been
requested to close during divine service
tbey had done so without n murmur;
but to try and force tlio Sunday law on
them was going too fur. Let i*5 ba made
provincial and no complaint would bo
heard.
Mr, Boers asked the mayor if he, ns
mayor of the city, was in order putting
that resolution, while he, as mayor,
Knew perfectly well thnt a Sunday
closing by-law was in force. Ho thought
the mayor was not in order, but he
might he mistaken, lu hia opinion the
meeting was drifting into a whiskey
meeting, while many more important
matters were being overlooked.
Mr. Kennedy felt very much obliged
to Mr. Beers for his remarks. If every
speaker would speak as honestly soine
good might come of tho meeting. He
(Mr. Kennedy) did not believe the
motion was in order, and he thought it
would rather surprise some people if this
resolution passed. It would bo supposed the council passed all kinds of
by-laws which amounted to nothing
afterwards. It was absurd that a drug
store should remain open all day Sunday
white :i saloon had to remain closed;
they both sold liquor only a saloonkeeper
paid a license and a druggist did not.
He considered it a great hardship to tho
saloonkeepers. As to the saloons shutting up during divine service, it wns a
perfect farce; if the back door was open
what good wns it to close the front?
He was not in favor of the snloou business;
lie took n little whiskey himself, but
very rarely. Ho would like to ask the
meeting what Westminster had over
done to induce tho farmers to come and
trade with us; he would ask them to
look at the ferry and say if that was not
enough to drive them off. Vancouver
with its great C.P.R. terminus and
China ships was going over to tho North
Arm and offering inducements to the
farmers to go nud trade with them; he
would like to know when Westminster
had ever done anything of that sort
(a voice, Never!) Mr, Kennedy finished
by attacking the council on the matter of
keeping the river open, nnd mnde a few
sarcastic remarks on the maimer iu
whicli the matter had been handled.
The mayor said the council had done
everything in its power to secure the
services of a steamer to keep the ice
from jamming in tho river, but it was
only at the last moment offers came in.
His worship then declared tlie resolution
offered by Mr. Gi-immor to be out of
order.
Mr. Calbick was called and .'•aid he
would .stand for St. Patrick's ward, and
if elected do all in his power to forward
the best interests of tho city, He was
iu favor of the Southern !\ lt. nnd
would like to bonus it.
Mr. Shiles said he signed the requisition thinking something would bo
brought up at the meeting of benefit to
the city. Ho had done his duty while
iii the council and would continue to do
so if ro-eleoted. The Southern Railway
waa a mutter of tlie first Importance to
the city uud he wuuhl do all in his power
to advance its interests.
Mr. Rend did not attend the meeting
prepared to speak, ho was there to listen
to Mr. Armstrong and others. Mr.
Armstrong had insinuated lis was
ttfrUJd to speak bis views; he was not
afraid und never would be. The bylaw passed by the Council he would uphold, and if necessary he would stick
to it and sec that its conditions were
carried out, no matter what it cost.
The by-law was both right and necessary
and he would stand or fall by it. J.lu
was in favor of the Southern Railway
and would vote for borrowing money for
it-
lii reply toa question by Mr. Ueid,
Mr Calbi I; said he waa in favor of
allowing the Sunday Observance By-Lnw
to stand, but he thought it should have
been provincial.
