From Foreign Sliores,
The following letter describing
the city and surroundings of Rangoon, in Burmah, was written by
llrs.. Oapt. McDonald (no Maud
Kirkland), well hnown iu this city
und district, who is sailing over the
world with her husband. Wo are
sure it will be read with much interest by Mrs. McDonald's numerous
friends, as well as by the general
public: "Sailing up the gulf of
Martaban we arrived tt the mouth
of the Rangoon river, the largest
branch of the Iirawady, where we
anchored. Extensive shoals of mud
nnd sand extend a long distance
from the entrance, affording good
anchorage, The following morning
a steam tug and a pilot came out to
us and it was with delight I heard
our vessel was to be towed up the
river to Rangoon, a distance of 27
miles. The anchor being taken up
wo at onco proceeded. The delta
land did not present a very striking
appearance. Low jungle, dotted
here and there by a few remarkably
tall palmyra trees, extends to the
water's edge, and there is but little
land under cultivation. I particularly noticed the color of the water,
the deep yellow hue being caused by
the great rise and fall of tide and
the velocity of the tidal stream.
As we proceeded some miles, we
passed tbe paddy-fields, which yield
large quantities of rice annually,
Rangoon ranking as one of the chief
ports of the world for the exportation of rice. The general aspect of
surroundings improved as we approached the town, of whioh the first
object Been was the great Dagon
Pagoda, which is very conspicuous,
owing to its great height. Before
arriving at our anchorage ground
thero were sampans coming alongside from all° 'directions, crowded
with natives—tho Burmese; also
Hindoos, Cingalese, and Moham
medans, who boarded our ship, each
endeavoring by his clamorous application to gain a promise of employment in his particular branch of
business, some even begging me to
intercede in their behalf.'' It was a
perfect babel of voices for a short
time, but on anchoring the crowd
quickly dispersed. (A sampan is a
kind of a flat-bottom skiff, in whieh
the propeller stands facing the bow
and by means of a pair of sculls
drives it with great dexterity and
swiftness through the water). I
understand this style of boat is adopted from the Ohinese. The greater part of Rangoon is situated on
the north sido of the river; but before going further it may be interesting to note a few historical facts
concerning it. It was originally
founded in 1753, by Aloiupra, a celebrated Burmese warrior. It was
occupied by the British in 1824, but
was not taken until the second Burmese war, April, 1852, when the
great pagoda fell under our arms.
It is now a large and flourishing
city, with over 100,000 inhabitants, u large proportion of the population being Ohinese. The streets
for the most part are spacious and
clean. The postoffice is tho only
public building of any great architectural beauty, though the bank of
Bengal and the court-house are
worthy of notice. There aro Protestant churches of nearly overy denomination. The Botanical and
Zoological gurdens ore well worth a
visit, also the Royal Likes, a succession of beautiful sheets of water,
situated nearly 20 miles from the
city, nnd affording some line vfews
of tropical scenery.- Thero is a
grand drive around these lakes,
much resorted to by the elite of
European society, especially on
moonlight evenings, when the band
and Highland pipers of the regiment of Scots Fusiliers dispense excellent music fortheir entertainment.
Situated in different parts of the
town are three or four pagodas of
considerable importance, dedicated
to the worship of Buddha, but these
are wholly eclipsed in comparison
with the great Dagon Pagoda, which
is the greatest object of interest in
the neighborhood. Our party visit
ed it early ill the morning, so had
an opportunity of seeing the Buddhists at their worship. Leaving
out cnrriiige a short distance from
tho entrance, we walked up to the
gate, near whicli were squatting on
the ground beggars of every description - -blind, deformed, diseased and
lame—some most wretched looking
beings, who very eagerly picked up
the small coins thrown to them, not
forgetting to shower benedictions
on tho givers. The Burmese are a
very charitable race and givo liberally to their poor. Entering the
gate, wo olimbed a long steep flight
of stone steps, which brought us to
a building whose arched roof is
supported by largo stone pillars,
and in whicli native vendors were
disposing of fruit and (lowers,
Passing through this we euine te a
very large square court,   containing
the great pagoda and all tho temples
of worship. The pagoda stands 300
feet high and is built of stone in tho
form of a pyramid. It is gilt all over,
with tho oxception of tho top, which is
shaped like a half-opened umbrella and
is heavily plated with gold, thickly
studded with all kinds of precious
stones—diamonds, rubies, emeralds,
etc The temples contain hundreds of
graven images of every size and description—some very repulsive-looking
figures, before which the worshippers
wero prostrating themselves, offering
their oblations of fruit and flowers.
Our attention was drawn to a large
hole in the pagoda, made by the British cannon at the taking of the city.
We also noticed the gravel' of several
European officers who fell at that time
and were buried in the enclosure. We
loitered about this wondorful structure
until the sun was high in the heavens,
which made our drive back rather
fatiguing, owing to the excessive heat
of mid-day. The country about Rangoon produces various kinds of valuable timber, but chiefly the straight
teak, which is very abundant and is
extensively exported for ship-building.
The forests of teak are situated on the
low country in tho Vicinity of the
rivers; the trees are cut down in tbe
dry season, and when this low-land ia
inundated by the swelling of the waters
during the rains, they are conducted to
the river and floated down in large
rafts to Rangoon. 1 wai muoh interested in watching the elephants employed in the timber-yards. From our
vessel I could observe them daily.
They would come down to the raft,
lift the logs from the water with their
trunks and stow them where required
in the yard. Tlie sagacity displayed
by these animals at thii work was marvellous. There is a railway opened
from the city to Promo, a distance of
162 miles, and it is now being extended to Mandalay. During our stay the
yearly horse-races were being held,
lasting five or six days. It was a grand
holiday-time. The Anglo-Indians
take a very great interest in this pastime, especially the military officers,
who have so few out-door amusements
in this hot climate. We had an invitation to attend from one of the prominent citizens, who keeps a stud of
racing ponies. The race-course is
well laid out, and provided with the
necessary accommodation of well-arranged stands, etc. The grand stand
wa*. filled with fashionably attired
Europeans and a sprinkling of Burmese. The Burmese ladies of high
position delight in adorning their persons with a profusion of valuable
jewelry. I was surprised, to see the
handsome diamond necklaces Worn by
some. In these races Burman ponies
only aro allowed to compete. These
animals are very small, but are noted
for their remarkable speed and endur
■nee. In the enclosure round which
the course runs were congregated
thousands of natives iu bright colored
gala dress, who, constantly moving in
their excitement, formed a pleasing
picture. Notwithstanding the almost
insupportable heat and the annoying
mosquitoes, it was with feelings of regret we left this Indian city, where we
had made many friends, and where we
had been so hospitably entertained,
especially by old residents of Inverness,
Scotland.

Santa Fe, March 17.—No freight
is being received this morning. Freight
trains stand in the Atchison yards
idle.    It seems to be the prevailing
opinion here that the Atchison, Topeka
& Santa Fe people will conciliate thU
men by directing them to ignore Burlington cars, and that within forty-
eight hours all trains will again be
moving. But at the same time another feature comforts those who offer
this solution of the problem. This , is
that when the Atchison, Topeka &
Santa Fe engineers recently canvassed
the matter of salary for skilled and unskilled labor, the engineers agreed that
none of the brotherhood should quit
the service of the company without
first haviug given 30 days notice of hia
intention to do so. This compact haa
been broken now, hence another complication.
FRENCH CANADIANS  FOR THE NORTHWEST.
Monbeal, March 17. — Cardinal

Borves have been marked out for them.

Cheyenne, Wy., March 17,—James
Franeia, of Ramlino, Carbon county, a
banker and for over 20 years a prominent citizen of this territory, failed
yesterday. Assets will reach $227,000
and liabilities $143,000. Francis was
recently heavily mulcted by the defalcation of two county officers, of whom
he was surety.
CHINA ADVICES.
San Franoisco, March 17.—The
steamer Oceanic arrived frcm China
and Japan this morning, bringing the
following advices: The viceroy of
China is said to have accepted the offer of a French syndicate to repair the
Yellow River gap for one million four
hundred thousand taels. All enquiries
tend to show that a third of Lhina
north of the Yellow River ii suffering
more or less acute distress, and in
Hunan and Anhui large parti of those
governments are under water and are
likely to remain so for some years.
In Shanghai on the night of Feb. 9,
while some people were celebrating

Thursday.
WRECKS FROM THE LATE  STORM.
Baltimore, March 17. — Definite
news of the destruction of property
and loss of life on the lower Chesapeake, is beginning to come in. An
unknown schooner was found with her
crew of six men frozen stiff. In Muddy
creek a number of oyster dredgers are
known to have perished. The schooner Eastern Light lost four of her crew,
and the schooner Joseph Allen also
lost four. It is impossible ss yet to
ascertain the full damage of the storm
upon the Chesapeake, but from data at
hand between 100 and 200 vessels are
either cast ashore or sunk. From 30
to 40 were wrecked and probably 30
people were drowned. Most of the
vessels were oyster schooners,
WILL IEEF THE CONTRACT.
Washington, March 17.—It is rumored that the Atchison railroad oompany has refused to allow striking engineers to haul United States mail oars
unless they also haul the passenger and
express oars. Vice-President Smith
virtually admitted it wai true, He
said the contract with the government
called on the road to carry the mail on
passenger trains, and that they would
comply with the requirements of the
contract.
GETTING TIRED OF THE STRIKE.
Kansas City, Mar. 17.—Sixteen
engineers expressed their intention of
soing to work to-day on the Santa Fe.
There is a great stir araonn the engineers, and for the first time since tne
beginning of the strike the members of
the committee are not among the men
pleading their cause. The Missouri
Pacific and Union Pacific officials say
they anticipate no trouble and hate
made no arrangements looking forward
to a strike.
A DESTRUCTIVE  HURRICANE.
San Franoisco, Mar. 17.—The ilr.
Mariposa, which arrived from Australia this afternoon, brings news of a
destructive hurricane which raged in
the Raratonga Islands from Jan. 22nd
to 25th, Whole groves of cocoanut
and orango trees were stripped, while
between 70 and 80 structures were
blown down. The trading schooner,
Atlantic, waa blown on a reef and
wrecked. The estimated damage by
the hurricane is $125,000.
THE SITUATION UNCHANGED.
Kansas City,  Mar.    17 At 10
o'clock this morning the Fort Soott A
Qulf trains are all moving promptly
and with regularity. The situation on
the Santa Fe is unchsnged, no switching being done in the yards. Chairman Carroll, of the union grievance
committee, admitted this morning that
the reports whieh he gave yesterday
were untrue. There wai no truth
that the engineers would be called out
at the rate of one road each day. Thii
morning thore was a large defection from
the Santa Fe strikers, which waa tha
result of a warm fight in the session of
committee's held last night.

Ohinese Exclusion Treat).
The "UJ. .S. congress has passed tt
bill prohibiting the immigration of
Ohinese. This measure may seriously affect Canada unless similar
legislation can be obtained. It is
well known that the Ohinese authorities are averse to tho emigration of their people, and do not particularly object to the treaty. But
the shutting of the doors of tho republic against Chinese immigration
will almost certainly turn the tide
into this country to such an extent
as to make fresh legislation necessary. What has been dono in the
United States may bo dono in Canada, if the people of this country
once get their eyes opon to the evil
with which they are threatened.
The presence of a few Chinamen
here under existing circumstances
seems almost necessary to tho success of some of our most important
interests, but we have enough and
too mnny of them already, and cannot but look with alarm at any considerable increase. As a rule it is
well known thot the lowest classes
of Chinamen find their way to those
shores. Many of them are from the
slums of their native land, and the
most of them are sent out and kept
in continuous slavery. They will
never become assimilated with other
races—which is fortunate—and they
remain an alien race who export
their earnings to the enrichment of
their owners. The time will come,
and may not now be far off, when
prohibitive measures against these
people will become a necessity. We
hope this matter may receive from
the federal government tho careful
consideration its importance de-
scrves, and that the doors may not
be permitted to remain open until
it is too late to close them against
the threatened invasion.
Growls from me Organ.
Our Church-st. cotemporary this
morning expresses the opinion that
the sending of a deputation to Ottawa about river improvements is a
great mistake. The reason of this
opinion is, apparently, the fact that
our cotemporary and Mr. Chisholm
were,not. first consulted. Evidently
the organ doesn't know what it is
talking about. If it had taken a
little trouble to inform itself with
respect to tho circumstances which
suggested the deputation, it would
have been able to discuss the matter
intelligently. The board of trade is
composed of gentlemen whose intelligence and judgment will, perhaps,
be found almost quite equal to those
of our cotemporary; the city council
is not made up of fools; the citizens'
meeting on Wednesday night is admitted on all hands to have been
one of the most influential and representative gatherings ever held in
Westminster; and all these are unanimously in favor of the deputation.
There was not a dissenting voice at
the citizens' meeting, and not only
unanimity, but very much enthusiasm prevailed. Those who have
been present at any of the meetings,
or who have read the reports published in the Columbian, may well
wonder by what kind of mental process our cotemporary reached the
conclusion that this movement is
"premature." It is the opinion of
all well-informed persons, who have
expressed an opinion, that it is most
urgent, and that the delegates
should proceed upon their mission
at the earliest possible moment. It
waa pointed out at the meetings that
delay might result in the proposed
mills being established elsewhere,
and might also postpone indefinitely
the time when ships would lie coming to load lumber nt the mills we
now have. If the present opportunity is permitted to pass unimproved, such another may never
come within our reach; and if every
citizen will be content, like our co-
temporary, to sit still until the government is moved to make a large
enough appropriation for river improvements, we may soon have the
grass growing on our streets anti
moss covering our sidewalks. Our
cotemporary lays it down as an abstract principle that "the mere fact
of gentlemen being deputed for any
special purpose gives no guarantee
for their suooess." Well, who over
said it did! It may be remarked,
however, that those who lack energy
and enterprise enough to push their
just claims almost invariably get left;
and if the people of this city were
to follow the precept and example
of our cotemporary, the prospects of
obtaining a satisfactory grant for
river improvements would bo extremely small indeed. Our cotom-
potary next turns his attention to
tht proposed change in the name of
the city by dropping the prefix
"New." This proposal ho declares
to be "characteristic of small minds."
Now, the small minds which endorsed it were the minds of a large majority of the principal eitizens, and
our cotemporary's remark is au intuit to overy one who voted for the
change at (he publio meeting, or
signed the petition. The objection
that the change would lead to confusion is entirely groundless, inns
much as there is no other Westminster postoffico in Oanada.

The Safety ol Tolal  Abstinence.
Now, I say to every abstainer, be
you a Christian or not, lot the drink
alone. Total abstinence is your safety.
Aro there no men ruined who had the
grace of God in their hearts?
1 know a man in whose pulpit 1
spoko in 1848. Dr. Iddy told me that
he was the most eloquent minister, ill
niuny respects, that he over heard.
The night 1 spoko he was very much
intoxicated. Ho wus deposed, and
afterward this doctor of divinity, who
had preached the Gospel to thousands
for twenty-eight yeutB, stood inn low
dram-shop, with his face blackened,
and a number of degraded and dissolute men jeering him, as ho stood
thero and preached some of his old
sermons for whiakey.
Look at the wrecks of men to be
seen on every hnnd. Oh! young mon,
I wish I could lift the curtain thatcon-
ceals from your view the secrets of
this chnrnel house. A man about forty
years of age, I suppose, a graduate of
Edinburgh University, came to me and
showed me his diploma as a physician.
He wns quito a fluent linguist and a
very cultivated gentleman, but tho
mark was upon him. 1 was with him
some time, and when he left me he
said to me, "I am very much obliged
to you, Mr. Gough, for your kindness
to me. You have told me tho truth,
but it's no use. There's no hope for
me. Will you shake liands with mel
I'm a lost laddie—good-bye."
"How many "lost laddies" are there;
lost, lostl A living man lost—yos.
It's an awful sight to seo a living man
a lost man, and thero are such. I
knelt at the family altar with a doctor
of divinity in Now England in 1852,
and I beard him pray. He was the
pastor of a largo church. To-day ho
is a drunkard, and employed as a hustler in u stable ill Boston. When Mr.
Moody was holding his meetings, it
was docided to go and see him, nnd do
something for him. .What was the
rosult—"Go away from mo. You
know who I am. You know what I
am. You know whnt I havo ' been.
pu away from nro. The doctor proscribed it for nre to savo my life, but
he has damned iny soul—go away from
me!"
Then what shall you do) Our principle of total abstinence is a simple
method. It is so simple ! What we
want ia that men and women should
adopt it Wo ask you thon, tn adopt
this prinoiple, not unly for your own
sake, but for others Oh ! these mon
need help. Thoy know ilint tho bitter
appetite is there like the smouldering
ovens of a volcano ready br bo roused
by the first dram druuk. Don't tamper
with tho appetite. Don't think, if you
have abstained for ten or more years,
that you can drink a little moderately.
I rememberrenilirrTT of agentleman who
had a pet tiger. The tiger was in his
study ono tiny, nud tho gentleman's
hand was hanging over tho chair. The
tiger was licking his hand, and on tho
gentleman attempting to remove it,
the animal, with ti low growl and a
snarl, fixed its claw* in thegeiitlemau'a
arm. Tho tiger stood wn.li his ears
thrown back, its tail stretched, aud
was evidently preparing for tho fatal
spring. The gentleman, keeping his
eye fixed upon tho tiger, rang the boll
and ordered the servant to bring the
pistol, with which ho shot the tiger
dead. He then looked at his hand nnd
observed blood upon it, tho sight and
smell of which hod aroused the tiger's
dormant nature. So it is with tho
appetite for drink, whicli is ever ready,
like tho tiger, to mako tho fatal spring
whenever it is for a motnont tampered
with,—John B. Gough.
.1 Bishop's Opinion.
At a convention held in Philadelphia
recently, the Rov. Tiros. County, tif
Massachusetts said: "Tho Yankees
once made pretly gr od ruin, hut from
making it know its qualities and grow
tired of using their own medicino. And
besides, Boston is not now tho Boston
of tho Winthrops, but of tho O'Briens.
They are tho strength of New England
now. But one thing retarded their
advancement—stronger even than bigotry—intemperance, which mot thorn
at every point. But Catholic New
England Imb conquered this enemy and
savs it is determined trr be sober—as
sturdy and noble a race as ever Btood
under God's banner. Some laymen
will not bs able to say of tho typical
Irishman,'Ho is a good fellow if he
did not drink too much sometimes-' Souls have been lost by
liquor and the homes ruinod, but now,
while Irishmen look for home rule
across tho writer, they fight for home
rule against the suluon next door. Bo
free men, Irishman. Do not forget,
while you light for yonr native land,
that tyranny here and shackles of your
own forging gall your limbs.
Beer Juki as nail as Brandy.
Commenting on the folly of trying
to lotsen drunkenness by encouraging
the consumption of tho milder intoxicants, Dr. Osward says:—"Wo cannot
fight ruin with lager beer. All poison
habits are progressive, and wo havo
seen that the beer vice is always apt to
eventuate in a brandy vice, or else to
equalize tho difference by a progressive
enlargement of the dose.' Common
brandy contains 50 per cent of alcohol,
lager boor about 10; so if A drinks one
glass of brandy and B five glasses of
beer, they have outraged their systems
by tho samo amount of poison,
and will incur the samo penalty.
Total abstinence is Ihe safe plan, nay,
the only safe plan, for poison cannot
be reduced to a harmless dose."

HOW A DIME IS COINED.

pre ses are. an I have li * 11 Inr^ome time,
luuiii g fxciusivrily oh this coin. The
demand is 80 great thot th «**■ machines
are not even ttonp^l ou .Sundays, and
will be run on that day through the
present month.
The process of dime-making is an interesting one. Tlie silver bullion is flrst
meltod and ^uu into twophin 1 bard.
These in turn are run through immense
rolhrsanl flattened out t*> tho thickness
of tbe coin. - 'these silver strips are then
passed through a machine, which cuts
them into the proper stzeloi- the presses,
th ■ si rips first having been treated with
a kind of tallow to prevent their being
scratched in their passage through the
entiors. The silver pieces nre thon put
into iho feeder of tho printing presses,
and are fed tothe die hy automatic machinery at tho rale of IU0 per minute,
IS,U h'i dimes being I unfed out in a regular working day of eight hours. As the
Miiomh pieces are pressed between the
pdiiderous printing dies they receive the
1 lei lured and figured impression in a man-
in r similar to that of a paper pressed
upon a form of type; at the same timo
tne piece is expanded in a slight degree,
an I tho small corrugations are cut into
its rim. The machine drops the com-
p.etedcotn into a receiver, and it is ready
1 for the counter's htm Is.

Nothing perhaps so strongly characterizes th s century as tlie advance man is
making in explorim*, undi islanding nnd
0 tatting a mastery could scarcely pro-
(ved in a more instructive way than by
' ir-icim; its stages in the instances we have
1 considered. The Alps and tho two Isthmuses illustrate it i;i a not unfitting way.
it s safe, probably,to say that the power
toex-avate earth, to excavate and blast
10 ■< is from fivo to ten times as great as
when a man wholly unknown to fame
lanis witn a handful of his countrymen
wliere the city Port Said now stands and
begins the excavation of SixoX
In regard to the present enterprise
upon the American Isthmus, if wu take
iu 0 account its magnitude and the ditll-
tiiltiea involved, it represents without
do ibt tho greatest eflort iu tlie line of
industry nnd peaceful achievement man
Ins yet put forth. Do Molinari, the Sel-
vi u economist, computed that the stock
«»i na.hinery for tho excavation repiv-
n.nt::d the labor of half a million men.
nib 11 fact indicates how far the process
coii 11 tiering nature has beon carried. The
Wi'i'.d is watching, with no doubt a de-

These two buildings mean nn expenditure not much short of §10,000, and
besides theso there are new buildings
now under way, or to be begun shortly, amounting to 915,000 or more.
Another Opium Seizure.
When the steamer Evangel arrived
at Seattle on Wednesday from Semiahmoo, diatoms Officers Winslow and
Luther boarded hor to mako the customary search for opium. The officers
noticed two valises und a trunk whioh
looked suspicious, and were accordingly seized. The man who put tho baggage aboard the boat was arrested, although he claimed it did not belong to
htm. It being in hia charge, however,
ho is answerable to the government,
just as though he was the owner.
Upon the valises and iruuk boing
opened they were found to contain
91,200 worth of unstamped opium,
110 pounds iu all, which at govornment
sale will bring §12 per pound. The
man who is accused of smuggling gave
his name as Vashion; lie looked like a
laboring man, and nothing was known
of lum on board the steamer except
that he came on board in a hurry just
as the steamer waa leaving Whatcom
for Seattle.
The -Charity  Concert.
A large aud select audience assembled in Herring's opera house last
night to witness tho entertainment
given by a number of ladies and
gentlemen from Vancouver, in aid of
the city hospital. Being tho lirst occasion on which Vancouvcvites presented themselves bofore a Westminster audience, tlioro was naturally much
speculation ns ta the quality of the
concert they would give, but it ia safe
to say tho terminal city people proved
all that was anticipated, und gavo very
general satisfaction. Tho programme
was opened by Misa Martin, who rendered an instrumental selection in fine
style. This was followed by the
"'Swinging Chorus," a very pretty
scene, accompanied by excellent music
and sweet singing. The ladies forming
this chorus were Miss McDougall,
Miss Martin, Miss Boultbee, Miss
Johns, Misa Farronj Mrs. Beecher,
Mrs. Beckingsale, Mrs. Twiford, Mrs
Macpherson, little Miss Winna Beckingsale and Master Colin Storey. The
little ones sat like a pair of capitis on
the swing, smiled aud chatted to each
other, and seemed to enjoy tho chorus
fully as well as tho audience The
"Powder Monkey," by Mr. J, T.
Williams, was really good. The song
suited his fine baritone voice perfectly,
and, being rendered in good taste,
brought storms of applause at Ua conclusion. MrB. Storey aaug " Daddy "
very sweetly and with much feeling,
and, in response to a most enthusiastic
encore, sang " Better bide a woe " in a
most touching manner. This lady has
a remarkably pure and sweet voice,
full of sympathy and expression, which,
coupled with a pretty face nnd winning
ways, made her tho favorite of tlio
evening. A rocit-ttion by Mr. S. Williams was one of thu best rendered
pieces ever heard iu this city. The
banjo quaitatte club then favored tlie
audience with several selections which
were greatly appreciated. Aftor a
short intermission tliu curtain mac and
two very handsome young ladies appeared on the stage, advanced to the
front, and, after bowing to the audience, fell back to make room for another couple, who in turn retired to
allow the others to mako their bow.
When this performance wus over and
the ten young ladies were standing iu
line, Mrs. Storey, tho captain, appeared on the scene and was warmly
greeted by the audience. The costumes of the ladies were very handsome, fitted to perfection, nnd, we understand, were made by the Indies
themselves, which certainly proves
that tho fair sex of Vaucouver are useful ns well aa graceful and pretty. On
word of command from their captain
the fan brigade advanoed and went
through a large number of motions,
and not only showed themselves to bo
adepts in tho use of thu fan, but
adepts in the nrt of flirtation. After
delighting the audience they retired
amid a perfect storm of applause which
was continued with increasing vigor
until thoy reappeared and repeated the
performance. Tho "Owl Critic," a
very difficult recitation, by Mr. S.
Williams, brought down the homo,
and as an encore he gave "Tho Light
Brigade" in splendid style. "Our
Last Waltz" was sung very sweutly
by Miss Martin, a charming young
lady, who, in response to the encore
insisted upon by the audience, gave a
pretty littlo chanson franeaise iu a very
captivating manner. "Drifting," by
Miss Stewart, was exceedingly well
sung and heartily encored. Miss
Stowart hns a very taking and well-
trained voice, which gives promise of
still hotter things. Another excellent
song by Mr. J. T. Williams was followed by Mrs. Storey in the "Moon
Song,' and "He's Going to Marry
Yum Yum," tho best hit of the evening. Mrs. Storey was dretsed in full
Japanese costume and presented n very
handsome figure. Her singing una
acting were both elegant and graceful,
and showed talent far beyond the average amateur., She was forced to return
three times hy tho delighted nudienco.
Selections by the banjo quartette followed by "God Savo the Queen,"
brought this vory pleasing entertainment to a clrifie. The concert was a
success financially, and, we understand, n nent littlo sum will bo added
to that already nised in md of the o'ty
hospital. Westminster will heartily
welcome the Vancouverito-i should
they ever return on the same mission.
The uccompaniments were played by
Mrs. McDougall and Miss Townley,
and both ladies deserve tho thanks of
all for the able manner in which they
performed this important part.

THE LAST RITES,
Tlit- Emperors' Funeral nn Imposing Ce-
rt-moiiy,- Attended by llie Boyalty of
Fiiro|ie.-(<rand .miliary Display.
Berlin, March IC. —The woathor
was sevorely cold to-day but the arrangements for the funeral of the late
emperor were carried out to the letter.
Troops wearing cloaks were ranged
four deep in front of tho cathedral and
along the route, and hundreds of
thousands of spectators occupied the
space behind them. The middle of
tho road was strewn with wilh gravel
and fir branches, and at the l'urisca
Plats were large crape festoons ontwin-
ed with laurels. The processaion left
the cathedral at one o'clock, but owing
to the severe weather the Emperor
Frederick was not preaent. Dr. Koc-
gel delivered his sermon while standing by the side of tho coffin, his text
being, "Lord, now lettest Thou Thy
servant depart in peace according to
Thy word, for mino eyes have seen
Thy Salvation." Thesorvices in the
cathedral were most solemn aud impressive. When the soft organ prelude began, tho court chamberlain and
the cabinet ministers look their positions, bearing tho insignia of the empire. General Pape, holding the imperial standard, then stationed himself at the head of* the coffin, Count
Lehndortf and Prince Itadizwill, the
late emperor's aides-de-camp, with
drawn swords, ou either side of him,
and the adjutants-general and the
other aides-de-camp standing together
at the foot of tho coffin. While tho
organ was still playing, tho royal personages entered the cathedral, Princo
William arriving ut noon. At tho signal of tho chief master of ceremonies
the organ broke forth in swelling tones,
and tbe services began. Prince William stood in the middle of the nave
immediately below the imperial standard, beside him wero the kings of
Saxony, Belgium and Bounielia, nud
closo by stood the Grand Duke Henry
of Baden, and the princes of the royal
houaoof Russia. Crown Prince Rudolph of Austria, the Czarevitch and
the Grand Duko Michael and Nicholas
of Russia, tbe Prince of Wales and
the PrinceB of Naples, Denmark and
Greece, each wearing tho uniform of
his country. Tho Princes of Bavaria,
the Duke of Hesse and other notables
and foreign representatives, including
Goneral Billot of the French army
with his suite, occupied the next rows
in the nave. Dr. Kocgel, who stood
beside the coffin, concluded the service with the Lord's Prayer and then
the congregation sang the hymn Uenn
Iek liinmd Soil Scheiden. At 12:45,
Doctor Kocgel pronounced tho benediction, tho infantry stationed outside
tiring volleys meanwhile and the ceremony closed with thosingihg of "Holy,
Holy iB tho Lord.*' The procession to
escort the body to tho mausoleum then
began to form. Twelve senior regimental cumnuiudors xhoulderod iho
coffin, tho high court officials walking
on either side of tho ministers of state
carrying on cushions tho imperial
crown and sceptre, while above the
coffin waved the imperial standard
borne by General Pape, on eaeh sido
of whom walked an officer with drawn
sword. The disposition of the cortege
was strictly in accordance with the
programme with the exception of thu
change mado necessary by the regrettable absence of Princo Biamtrck nud
Count Von Moltke, Tho military display was magnificent, und the escort
of the dead emperor comprised the
elite of the imperial army. Goneral
Billot and the representatives of Russia and tho Netherlands contributed
wreaths. Wending its vtsy through
Unter den Linden, tho procession
reached tho Brandenburg Gate soon
after 2 o'clock. Tho demeanor of the
countless spectators waa excellent, tho
silence was unbroken, and nil remained uncovered until the coffin passed.
Tho cortege moved onward and reached Charlottenburg at 3:15. The
body was received by the pastor at
Charlottenburg, Doctor Koegul closing
the solemn service with the benediction. Tho imperial,family and mourners then withdrew, the generals taking
farewell by laying a handaa if to salute
upon the coffin, and the artillery then
announced that the ceremony wus
over. From a window of the palace
saloon that overlooks the park, the
emporor watched tho procession and
remained iu tho spot till tho ronr of
artillery dosed the ceremonies. He
wore the uniform of a general, with
the sash of tho Black Eagle. The Empress Victoria and tho Royal Princess
were present at tho service at llio
mausoleum, and roturned to the palace
at, 4 o'clock.

MOli LAW IX KANSAS.
Topeka, Kua., March 13.--It has
junt been learned that the Rush county
seat wur broke out again Saturday last
and assumes a most serious aspect. Iu
defiance, of the positive mandate of tho
supreme court, tho peoplo of Lacrosse
have again taken forcible possession of
the county records and removed them
from Walnut City. Late Saturday
afternoon two hundred men with fifty
teams entered Walnut City, nnd, driving up to tho building uccupied by the
county officers, proceeded to load the
records, safes, and all the oflice fixtures
into wagons. The crowd was boister*
terous and demonstrative. A number
of guns and revolver*) wero displayed,
and the crowd declared their intention
of laying the town iu ashes if any resistance was offered. No resistance
was offered, however, and the records
were carried away. The representatives of Walnut City now propose invoking the aid of tho government nnd
supreme court.
