From Washington.
(From Our Regular Correspondent.)
Washington, June 5, 1888.
Representative Wilkins from the
committee on banking and currency,
has reported to the house a substitute for a bill introduced bjr him to
revise and codify the banking lows
of the United States. The substitute contains the views expressed
by the comptroller of the currency
before the committee. The report
states that tlie original actauthoriz
ing the establishment of the national bunking system and a later law
modifying the same were passed at
a time when the government was in
great need of money, with the object,
not so much of supplying a circulating medium, as of furnishing to the
government a market for its securities, issuing from time to time,
other than the limited market afforded by the ordinary demands from
the people. The conditions existing
then, tbe committee says, have long
since ceased; the government is no
longer seeking a market for its securities, nor looking for a purchaser
for its bonds. It is no longer a bor
rower, but is making haste to get
out of debt. Therefore, owing to
the success attending upon the national banking system, and the recognised benefits it now affords the
whole country, the question of its
continuance to a period co-equal at
least with the existence of a government bond seems well settled by
both congress and the people. Since
the embodiment of all the laws into
the revised statues in 1873 the committee says many of the laws and
amendments passed sinoe that time
are of the utmost importance and
are scattered over a period of fifteen
years, and distributed throuhout the
same number of publications of laws
of each session of congress, inconvenient for reference and inaccessible to the great number of people
interested,
Thero is "the other side" to all
things. People are mistaken who
think the wifo of the average member of congress leads a delightful existence here at Washington. There
are several things that it becomes
the duty of the wife of a statesman
to do. Besides having an extensive
correspondence of her own, chiefly,
with people who try to reach her
husband through her sympathies,
she often has to help her husband in
his letter-writing, if he is not a rich
man. Many member's wives read
serious works on political economy,
oto., which are sent to them from
tbe congressional library, so as to
help their husbands in their official
duties. Many wives, too, while the
public believe they are eircling
through society, are sending off documents for their husbands. They
sit in the back parlor office, surrounded by hundreds of books, done
up in yellow paper, printed in one
.corner: "fmtotCongressioml Record
—free" and"M.0."in the other.
They write their husbands' name
over the "M.0." and address the
packages to influential constituents
at home.
But all this is merely a pleasant
pastime to what the wives of some
of the new members bave to endure.
They feel a thrill of joy on being
called for tho first time "Mrs. Representative," and they look at a letter
for half an hour before opening it,
and their pulse beats high when the
address is "Hon. Mrs.— But there
is a compensation for all these joys.
There ure many things to make the
lot of a new member's wile not a
happy one. No one outside of the
family knows the history of a great
speech delivered on the floor of the
house. If thu puplic knew, there
would be a spontaneous outburst of
Bymathy for the patient and oppressed "Mrs. Representative." Peoplo
make the mistake of thinking that
this lady's time is taken up by calls,
receptions, dinners, and the whole
list of entertainments designed to
shorten life. They do not stop to
think how muoh is involved in an
hour's speech on tho tariff, the silver
question, or civil service reform I
The history of this speech begins at
home. A domestic tragody stands
behind it I Much noble self-sacrifice
and forbearing philosophy has attended its preparation. The congressman's wifo has been the victim.
Perhaps it is a humorous speech.
Heavens I how much domestic suffering lias been caused by each well
"worked up" joke 1 The secret history of the manuscript is sad. It
is wisely concealed from the public.
The wife alone knows it. The
pinched and pale expression of sad
resignation on her face alone tells
the story. No one else knows how
those jokes, or those bursts of eloquence wear upon the ties of domestic happiness.—Lknox.

LAST NIflHT'S DESPATCHES.
MK. CIUMBERLAIN'SUTTKH.
London, June 13.—Mr. Joseph Chamberlain's letter, denying the statements
made by Mr. Gladstone to the Ayr electors, has awakened more interest than
usually attaches to the lucubrations of
the Birmingham R»dical<feador. He declares that lie has always been ready to
concede to Ireland, lo principle the same
meaaure of local government as is enjoyed
by England and Scotland, but thnt the
settlement of the land question must of
necessity precede it. As the solution of
that most difficult problem has always
been thnwt forward as a condition of
Mr. Chamberlain's support of any measure of self-government for Ireland, however, the gentleman's sincerity in the
present instance is regarded as a matter
of grave doubt. He refers to the suggestion contained in the artioles recently
published in the Birmingham Post, which
proposals Mr. Gladstone's followers have
generally dubbed "moonshine" and argues that the original home rule scheme,
with which he was at the time of ita issuance and until Its alteration in full accord, is the only true Liberal platform.
While Mr. Chamberlain's letter has set a
good many people talking and a few
thinking, it is not likely that any of
them will arrive at a degree of conviction
resulting in their conversion to hli
theory.
THE GOVERNMENT DEFEAT.
The Standard and St. James Gazette.
strongly condemn the government for
the bungling management which permitted their defeat in the division on
Mr. Jennings' motion hut night.
Mr. Jennings, who hu hitherto been
regarded merely as an able writer and
an able party member in respect to
offering timely advice and promoting
organization, has suddenly achieved
prominence as an orator by the excel
lent speech delivered in support of his
motion. Mr. Jennings will be remem
Jeered as having served for several
years as editor-in-chief of the Now
York Times.
TRYING TO TRAP STANLEY.
Montreal, June 13.—A morning
paper says that there ii an intrigue ou
loot among the Imperial federationists
of Canada to induce Lord Stanley to
accept the position of honorary president and warns the new governor to
be careful not to overstep the principles
of constitutional government. Imperial federation he is tuldt though now
looked upon as a harmless lunacy,could
be regarded in another light if its advocates were successful in inveigling the
governor-general into a compromising
attitude.

says there are a number of lam townships which are now literally alive with
the grasshoppers, whieh are jut now
hatching out. The; are the genuine
Rocky Mountain variety, the kind

The Vanoouver News of the 13th;
inst., in (jailing the nttentlon of Van-
couverites to the advantages accru
ing to property owners, and to the
city generally, from the numerous
auotion sates of real estate held at
intervals :ih this city, proceeds to
showthat by this means, and by her
building sooiety, Westminster hus
already done muoh to stimulate nnd
encourage tho building up of the
city, and adds that tho peoplo of
Vancouver and of the other cities in
the province can with advantage to
themselves follow tho example sot
them in these respects by their
neighbors on the Fraser. "While we
can agree with our cotemporary in
this matter, we must remind our
Westminster readers that, in fairness to themselves, if they aro going
to furnish good examples to Vancouver, gratis, they should, in turn, borrow some of tho same commodity
from that city, and tho goods in
i*ucstion ure forthcoming. At the
last meeting of the Vnncouver city
council tho following progressive and
long-hondcd measures wore inaugurated: Aid. Alexander gavo notice
that he would introduce a by-law
granting a bonus of $50,000 to any
parties establishing n blast furnace
and rolling mills in the city. Aid.
Clark moved, seconded by Aid.
Couth, that $300 be appropriated
for the expenses of makings display
of the products of that part of the
country tributary to Vancouver at
the Toronto exhibition. Carried.
Aid. Oppenlieiiner gave notice of
two by-laws, one to grunt exemption
from taxation for 20 years for a
paper mill and the other to appoint
park commissioners. What is Westminster going to do about encouraging new industries? Any manufacture that can be carried on success
fully at Vancouver would flourish
equally as well, if not better, hero.
What about our park] How are
our waterworks progressing'! What
nbout sewerage! Does onybody
know anything about tlio immediate
outlook for our Southern Eaiiway !
Are tho citizens generally taking
sufficient interest in thfse things 1
If not, how do they know that their
interests will be protected . Westminster cannot afford to go to sleep
on any question affecting her interests at such a juncture as the present when competition is keen between the various thriving cities in
the province, and when British Col
umbia-is attracting both population
and capital from all quarters. Bather than allow ourselves to drift behind in the race, we should be prepared to borrow large sums for the
development of reproductive schemes
and enterprises, and tho carrymg on
of necessary public works. The
finances of the city are on a sound
basis, onr credit is good, and there
should-be no trouble to secure any
nmount of money on good terms.
The TimeronTfr.llewdiie).
The Victoria Times oi Tuesday,
in an article on Hon. Edgar Dewdney, says: " The Kew Westminster
Columbian comes out strongly in
favor of Hon. Edgar Dewdney as
minister of the interior." The Times
then proceeds to paraphrase rather
freely what he is pleased to call our
arguments in favor of Mr. Dtrwd-
ncy, and true to his grit instinct.
(we do not mean any offence to the
grits, whom we are prepared to give,
as to any party or person, all the
crodit due), manages by a little
olever verbal jugglery to work up
some political capital for Mr. Mackenzie and his party. We havo no
objection to this, for if it pleases the
Times it doesn't hurt "we." The
Colombian, however, never said
that it was strongly in favor of Mr.
Dewdney as minister of the interior
We considered thnt his appointment
as such might at the time of writing
be taken to be an accomplished fact,
and had no expectation of affecting
that appointment one way or another. We also stated some historical facts concerning Mr. Dewdney,
which we know to be facts, and
whioh the Times, of course, does not
attempt to confute. We were
speaking to British Columbians, and
we, farther, outlined the charges
made ag&inst Mr. Dewdney in the
Northwest, nnd left tho matter
without prejudice in the hands of a
free and intelligent public, who have
perhaps as good capaoity and right
forjudging Mr, Dewdney on hoar
say as either tho editor of the Times
or ourselves. We have no interest
or desire to champion Mr. Dewdney,
but surely even the Times would be
better satisfied if, instead of quoting
charges against Sir John's new minister, it could cite the deliberate and
impartial judgment of some competent commission of inquiry into
thoae charges. -Miking for granted,
as we laid before, that Mr. Dewd-
ney's appointment might be considered an accomplished fact, we felt
perfectly justified in making tins
suggestion—leaving it to be acted
on or not us in their discretion might
seem best to th» soveral constituencies of this provinoo—tlint the example set by Viotoria some years
ago might be followed with advantage, and British Columbia, by that
means, gain * representative in Uio
cabinet. TJie people of the various
Dominion electorate! in this province oan be trusted to settle thii mat
ter for themselves, wltli liltle more
thon suggestions from tho press. A
great many of them know far more
about Mr. Dewdney personally than
does the editor of the Times. If the
Wines, which-can hardly escape tho
imputation of" party bios, oannot
bring evidence of a' more valid nature to bear upon tho case (lie tho
real, uuauthentieated, facts what
they may), then our cotemporary will
have succeeded in throwing very
little light upon the subject, and his
effort will havo been almost in vain.

Rmn'Otiuy to Hehool Hoard,
Germany's Future Emperor.
Now that, according to the latest
despatches, thq beloved <! Fritz" of
the Fatherland seems about to be
called to his reward, a grent deal of
interest will naturally centre in his
successor, the present Crown Princo
William. Many comments ou the
future Emperor of Germany, more
or less unfavorable, have gone the
rounds of the press, and wo are glad
to give place to the following rather
favorable expressions taken from the
Montreal Witness of a recent date,
and dated Berlin, May 29: "An incident occurred during tlie Prince of
Wales' stay in Berlin that causes
general comment, and to which important political significance is attached. From shortly after sunrise
until ten o'clock on tlie morning of
the day preceding the royal wedding
the Crown Princo had been maneuvering his brigade in the Temple-
hof fields. For tlie first time the
Crown Prince took supreme command of the muna-uvres and acquitted himself admirably. He succeed
ed in repulsing the attack of an
imaginary enemy marching against
Berlin. The various regiments,
squadrons and batteries of the imaginary enemy were represented by
red and white cloth banners. The
enemy's attack was drawn up by
Field Miirshal Count Von Moltke
himself, and was made as difficult as
possible. After four hours of incessant marching, countermarching, advancing, retreating and maneuvering over every'squnre yard of rising
ground or cover, the Crown Prince
succeeded in outmana-uvering liis
enemy, commanded by one of the
ablest oflicers of the Prussian army,
and by a brilliant charge at exactly
the right moment captured the
enemy's positions. Afterward, following the example of the lute Emperor, the Crown Prince rode to the
historic oak tree, known as the
'Kaiser Eich,'in the middle of the
Temple-hof parade, and there surrounded by a hundred officers, pointed out in brief, technical language,
the errors committed and tlie correct
moves made during tlie umncbuvrefl
of the day. The Crown Prince sub
sequently was most highly complimented by Count von Moltko for tlie
'quickness of perception, accuracy
and sound military instinct that ho
gave proof of by the admirable manner in which he handled the seven
thousand men under his command.'
The Crown Prince felt naturally
vory much elated, and this was re
ferred to by the Prince of -Wales
during a visit that the Prince of
Wales made to t he Crown Prince nt
tlie AJteschloss on Wednesday afternoon, and it wits then that the
Crown Prince said: 'Keine rose
ohne dornen (there is no rose without a thorn). 1 am a soldier. I
have taken two men for my models
—Frederick the Great and the Emperor William. I would not be a
Hohenzollem prince if I did not feel
convinced that tbe national existence
of Germany depends on iht* nrmy.
My military studies givv hSivn -router pleasuro than anything i'i.-*. but
lot mo tell you frankly tliiu uotbing
causes luo greater pain aud h«ai't
burning than the wild, warlike intentions that are attributed to me.
I am in every way as peaceful as the
Emperor William wbb, and for tho
people, 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 pence of Europe, is absolutely absurd.' Tho Crown Prince
afterward spoke in the most affectionate terms of his father, the presont Emperor, whom he sees regularly
ly twice a day."

A Serpentina V.nala Tell. How Sbe Ac-
quired and Betalns Ber.Suppleuess.
The other day I colled on Hi bender, says
1 writer in the Pall Matt Gazette, a lrrdy,
rot a gentleman, who is well known as a
nost serpentine contortionist.   I wished
_ ask Mile. Vonare a few questions about
ier art, with a view ot throwing some
ight on the training ot little boys and
-iris for the profession.
The lady was sitting before tho Ure with
ier Bister, who has abandoned bending
lerself add exhibits a troupe of highly
dueated poodles. A huge wicker basket
rontained her dress and other stage hab-
ts.   From its depths aho produced a
undle of photographs of herself tied and
notted into all manner of curious folds.
That is the business ot a bender. Tbe
lody is thrown Into a score' of unnatural
oatures, which appear to the audience to
achieved by dislocating every joint in
be human frame, and to he effected at
mat risk to limb and life. Artists
ire generally enthusiastic about tbeir
railings, and I must say that Miss Vonaro
Isolated that she would rather bo a boner than a queen, .or something to that
Sect. She began at 4; at 5. _ she was before the publlo, and remains a bender
Mil.
"My father saw a contortionist ono
right on the stage, and asked himself why
ie should not teach me, nged.4. I was put
nto training at once, and enjoyed tho f rru
s a ohild will enjoy anything new. Wus
IheatenP Waslstarved? No. Iseemedto
ake to it like a little duck takes to water.
If on see, we were a family oE athletes, and,
ddes, I was a daughter and not an ap.
■entice. If the father is tho trainer he
ur y not spare the rod, bnt he ia cruel only
S be kind. My experience is that leas rod
nd more kindness is the best plan,
father used to bribe ns Into doing tho
different tricks.
"To ba successful means years of hard
Ifork, practice and performance, I am
Dlueteen now, and my performance keeps
pe iu capital training.
"In the business of contortion tho first
on ia the backward bead, first with the
|rms, then without. Yon stniul on a long
attress, so that there is no danger, and
t flrst your teacher controls your move-
jjents with a belt.
'It is much tbe same with other forms of
crobutlo work, and the cruelty often
Bkestbo form of taking away the mat-
ess, which creates a sort of pauic in tho
|upil's mind.
"If he has really tried his best nnd
tiled, he Is so terrllicd that he is almost
It-tain to fall unless ho has a great deal
j pluck. If he has only been sulking it
fay bring him to his bearings. Of eonr.ro
lllilren are often stubborn, and try tho
Iticuce of tho teacher to its utmost
ult.
."Tha art of contortion," continued Miss
Jbnare, "Is learned by degrees. First the
Ickward bend, then the 'dislocation,'
Jru tlie 'splits,' aud so on. Whnt we cull
koseuess'distinguishes the heBt bending,
0 the audience bending seems most difii-
llt. But 1 experience no discomfort or
provenience. Iwiur a puny child. You
e mo now." ,
(The l.uly bender was cortaloly most.
In I thy uud cheerful, stout in body and
Iddy in complexion, uud sbo strongly
laiutnins tlint all women would be groat-
1 benefited if they took to bending.
["It is quite a mistake to think that wo
|t our limbs out of joint or thnt we suf-
1 from ths curious nature of our per-
[ruinnce,  Of course, after one or more
ucult positions one may suffer a little
liu, but it goes ln no time, in some at-
ludes-I can only remain' for twenty
Ironds, as tbe breathing becomes diffioult.
Bt these are trifling inconvenieuoes.
I practice a few. minutes every day to
fep myself loose here in my room, and

Two Good .Stories of a South Carolina
.   - Counsel.
' I have heard, says tiro Washington cor.
respondent of tbe eitiladciyiil'i Record,
two good stories ot Pettigrew,. cit South
Caroline, tho great lawyer and .Unionist.
He was practicing at one time before a
judgo who was a Presbyterian of tho
stralghtest sect and a very bard-working
officer. It came to be Maundy Thursday, and Pettigrewand the Episcopalians
and Roman Catholics thought they would
like an adjournment of court over Good
Friday. Pettigrew was selected to make
the motion.
"Your Honor," he said, "I desire to
move that the court adjourn over to-morrow."
"Why should the court adjourn over
to-morrow when the docket Ib so crowded I*" asked the Judge.
"Because," said Pettigrew, "tomorrow
Is Good Friday nnd somo of us would like
to go to church."
"No," said the Judge, decidedly, after
a moment's thought, "the court will sit
to-morrow irs usual,"
"Very well, your Honor," replied Pettigrew, adding as he turned away; "I
know there is a precedent, for P.iutius
Pilate held court on the flr_t Good Friday."
The same judge was a great stickler for
etiquette, and when one hot July day
Pettigrew came into the court room iu a
black coat and yellow nankeen trousers,
the Judge took him sternly to task, asking him whether he did not know that the
rules of the court required its counsellors
to appear in "black coat and trousers."
''Well, your Honor," said Pettigrew,
innocently, "I submit tbat I am withiu
the rule, for I have on a black coat and
trousers."
"But they're not black trousers," Insisted the Judge; "black coat anil trou
son means tlint both shnlt be bl-ck."
"Theu," said Pettigrew, *'t cull your
Honor's attention to the fact that .the
Sheriff of this court in in contempt of the
rules, for. tliey require bim to attend
upon its sessions in a- cocked hat and
sword, and wbilo his hat seems to be
cocked his sword certainly is not."
The Judge said uo more about the tronson,     ■ ■;.
Not an Enthusiast, Exactly,
Young Oliver is a dry youth of eight or
nine, whoso face is as blank as a wall
when ho tells n story or delivers an opinion, but who is an exceedingly precocious
chnpforall that.
Tho other dny ho went to visit a rich
relative out iu ono of tbe suburbs, and
was takeu to seo the ponies, and the carriages, and the elegant grounds, aud
finally given a private view of some cherished white rabbits which had been Imported from somewhere, and which he
was expected to admire very much.
Ho. viewed everything, however, with
his customary jmpiissivetiess.
On his return home, Oliver was questioned regarding bis visit, and asked,
among other things-.
"Did you see thoso wonderful rabbits?"
. "Um-um."
; "Well, what did they look like!"
"One of 'em didn't look like nothing,
and the other looked just like himt"

' The other day Capt. Worthy and Jndge
Williams rode out to the farm ot the
former. While sitting In the buggy ln
front of the cabin ot William Brown, a
colored tenant, the following conversation took place:
"There seems to bo a good many children about here, William. Are they all
yours I"
"Yes, sah. All mine; but dese ain't
all."
"How many have you In all I"
"Ain't got but forty, sah. I had forty-
eeben, but I had bad luck somehow wld
the children o' my last wife, and didn't
raise but seben of'em. Oe oder seben
died."

Wone and Worse.
Ono of the hardest things In the world
Is to condole with anybody in a misfortune or a benavement. If tt wen not
that tbe matter Is generally serious, a
great many funny stories could be printed
about the condolences people offer to th*
bereaved.-
But up at Sacramento aome time ago, a
hard-working Irishman fell out ot a
fourth-story window and broke bis nock,
His wife was, of conns, ln great distress.
After the funeral a neighbor called to
offer her sympathy and condolence
"It was a very sad thing, indeed."
"Indeed it wu. To die like that—to
fall out of a fourth-story window "
"An' was lt u bad u tbat J1' uked the

Th. Usdlclno That Cured Her.
"I had a young lady patient some time
ago in the south end of the town whocon-
ceived tho Idea that aho wu very sick,
and that then wu nothing on eatth

one of our local physicians yesterday.

Sho was a beautiful girl with a (ull head

Scrofula
Is one of the most fatal scourges which
afflict mankind. It is often inherited-,
bat may be the result of improper vaccination, mercurial poison, uncleanliness,
and various other causes. Chronic Sorts,
Ulcers, Abscesses, Cancerous Humors,
and, in some canon, Emaciation and Oon*
sumption, result from a scrofulous Condi*
tion of the blood. This disease can bs
cured by the use of Ayer's SarsapariUa.

The Westmin j* ler Addition.
The auction sale of tho lots in the
Westminster addition, by Mr. T. J.
Trapp at tho Colonial on Saturdny
evening, is attracting much attention,
and gives promise of being one of the
most successful sales held in the city.
The plan of the addition, issued by the
owners ofthe property, has been carefully inspected by every dabbler in
real estate in town, and by many also
who are beginning to realize that there
ia lots of money to be made in legitimate investments in city and suburban
property. A great deal of property
has changed hands lately, but there
appears to be no abatement in the desire tu buy; on the contrary tho fever
seems to be increasing and there is no
tolling to what extent it will rise beforo
top values aro reached.
Advices from Chilliwhack to-day
Btate that the water remained stationary last night though the river has fallen 30 inches since high water was
reached. At Sumas tho wator has
fallen even moro than at Chilliwhack,
while at Langley the fall has not been
nearly as great as at points farther up
the river. The report yesterday from
Quesnelle to Mr, James Wilson, sunt.
C. P. R. telegraphs, says: "Tbo
water is three feet b»low highest water
of this year, and is at a standstill now."
To-day's roport ia not so encouraging,
it says: "The rivor has risen sevon or
eight inches sinco yesterday." From
a gentleman who arrived to-day from
Portland we learn that tho wator in
the Willamette river is rising rapidly
and has already flooded the cellars of
warehouse and stores in tho streets adjacent to tho river.

One of the industries for which
Westminster is admirably situated is
shipbuilding, und thero is an opeuiug
now for shipbuilders under moBt favorable circumstances. All the timber,
knees and spars, besides finishing wood,
can be manufactured within a atone
throw of the shipyard, and no finer
timber can be procured for the purpose
than that cut by our mills. The Ross
McLaren mills, Royal City mills and
Brunette milts will all be exporting
largely within a ycar,nud a vessel built
iu Westminster need never go seeking
a cargo. The Royal City mills would
purchase the first ship and probably
several others, and liss & McLaren
would also bo likely to take sevoral.
Vessels leaving this port with lumber
would not find much difficulty in getting a cargo to Lit ori .ool or Loudon,
and there a freight for tho BriiUh Columbia cunneries or a lond of merchandise could be easily obtained for the
homeward voyage. Immediately after
discharging the vessel would be reloaded with lumber and the former trip repeated. Thu ships could also cany
away the salmon packed on the Fraser,
which, in good years, would mean five
or in to v<-h*uIb. The city would be
willi' g to b i.us a firs'-class tiluphuild-
it<g linn and "ther strong inducements
w ulH also be offered To shipbuilders
of enterprise and experience Wearmin-
sti*t offers exceptional ndvatit.-ges, mid

A Unllxfacttirj  Trip.
The L'entlomeu who went down to
rlie earidheads yesterday morning with
Capt, Lewis, on the atr. Sir James
Dou^hi-i, returned last evening on the
Samson having made the necessary arrangements for mi official survey of tbo
channel. On arriving at English's the
Miagliuiit Samson was in waiting und
ihe patty wont aboard her and steamed
out to the Biitiilhi'iids by the north side
of the channel, close to the buoys, and
returning ran diagonally across the
channel taking soundings every 20
yards. The soundings rosuttcd in finding 13£ feet of water in tho shallowest
part at low tide. Capt. Robinson, ono
of the party on board and wbo navigated these waters for years, says, after making all possible allowances for
tides, currents and deductions necessary when sounding in a current, that
there is fully 22 foot of water on the
bar, between black buoys 7 and 8, at
high tide. Capt. Robinson allows 2
feet 6 in. for difference in tho tide
between tho light hou?e and the bar,
and 1 ft. 0 in. for inaccuracies in
sounding. These allowances give .22
feet of water, but other gentlemen
think the deductions too great and that
when tho official survey is made at least
23 ft. 6 in. of water will be found at
tlie shallowest part. These soundings,
though preliminary, are most satisfactory, corroborating as they do tho
soundings mado by Capts. McAllister
nud Johnson and completely exposing
the inaccuracy of Cupt. Lewis' report
on the channel. Tho official survey will
bo made in two or three -weeks time
as it is expected the water in the river
will have fallen sufficiently by then to
allow the work to bo accurately performed.

A vTo-ftdorAd Atlantic Trip,
The wonderful performance of the
Cunaid s.a. Etrurin in crossing the Atlantic in six days, ono hour and fifty-
five minuteB is not only in itself a wonderful feat in ocean etoam navigation,
but abo an important step forward in
shortening the trans-Atlantic trip,
whioh has been making steady progress
during the past 30 years. No steamship has ever before covered 503 miles
iu 24 hours, much less bus any steamer
ever before maintained an average for
six consecutive dftyB of 470 miles every
24 hours. It ia comparatively but a
few years since the completion of the
voyage botween Liverpool and New
York in seven days was'heralded aB a
triumph of ocean navigation and nsvnl
urchi tool ure, and a daily record of 400
miles was (hen considered equally as
wonderful. Ouo day has sinco then
beon eliminated from the running time
of the trip and an avorago of 70 miles
nddod to tho record of a single day.
This result has beon accomplished by
the perfection of construction, not only
in tho lines of these ocean monsters
but in their propelling power; and the
experience of this last performance only
demonstrates that, as yet, we huvo not
reached the limit of developing the expansive power of steam. In tlie light
of the Etrurta's trip, five days between
the two great Atlantic ports of Liverpool and New York is by no means
either an impossibility or an improbability, and there is every reason lo expect that such a foat will be accomplished during the next decade in tho
world's history.
Won liy One.
Contrary to the general expectation
the return matoh between the Vancouver and Westminster baseball clubs
resulted In favor of- Westminster.
Our nine have practiced very irregularly since the 24th of May, and it
seemed from tho way things were shaping that defeat was certain, especially
aB it waa known the Vaucouveritcs
were practicing steadily and had attained much bettor form than thoy displayed at tho last match. Another
telling circumstance against Westminster wss the unavoidable absence of
several of the best players of the nine.
The match was delayed by tho rain but
at 4 o'clock play commenced, Westminster going to bat first. In this in-
uingB the visitors scored two
runs. Vancouver failed to score,
Spencer's pitching being a little too
difficult to get tho run nf. In tho second innings Vancouver settled down to
work and soon got three men out, but
not before Cunningham had added another run to the aoore. Vancouver
here pulled up and secured three runs,
made by Allen, Met?, and Larwill.
The third iu linings Westminster scored
one and Vancouver failed to count,
and in the fourth Westminster by
brilliant play scored four against their
opponent's one. The fifth innings was
the bost played of the match, both
clubs failing to ecoro a run. Wilson
for Wostminster made a brilliant catch
which resulted in putting out McLennan, Norval and Laing. It was
the prettiest bit of play seen on the
field. In tho sixth innings Vancouver
went to pieces and did not pull up
again till their opponents had added
six runs to tho score. Owing to a
broken finger - Baker, who had been
catching for Westminster, was forced
to retire, and was replaced by Greig,
who made a splendid substitute. Vancouver scored two in this innings. In
the seventh innings Westminster added ono and Vancouver two runs to the
score, and in the oighth Westminster
two Hgaiust tho home club's five. The
ninth iniunys Westminster played
loosely and failed to score, while, for
Vancouver, Beck, Norval and Brophy
eaeh made a run. The general play
showed Westminster lo be much the
best club of the two, though playing
Beveral men of the second nine Both
clubs showed want of practice and lots
of it.

The High School Unestlon.
Kditoii Columbian. — Would you
kindly allow me space in your journal
for a fow words of comment on the action
of some members of our school board in
—what they are pleased to call—dismissing H. M. Stramberg from our services
as principal of the New Westminster
high school, The sudden announcement
that appeared iu lust Saturday's issue of
The Colombian of Mr. Strarnberg'a dismissal from tbe school, and that even
without any specific charge being brought
against him, was certainly a "startler"
to our citizens, Mr. Stramberg has occupied the position of principal of tlio
high school in tliis city tor a number of
years, and it is a well known fact that
lie has occupied it in a most ablo manner.
Ho has raised our high school to tho
highest standard in tho Dominion, and of
its efficiency we havo many proofs- instance tho roport in Tuesday's Columbian. But, must the uommuity be deprived of so valuable a servant for the
sake of gratifying the whims of two or
three unruly pupils ? I most emphatically say no. If the mattor were put to
a proper test I feel confident that Mr.
Stramberg would bo sustained in his position as teacher by a vote of nine-tenths
of tho residents of Westminstor city.
Therefore, in the face of all these proofs
and regardless of the wishes of parents
and guardians of children, this action by
a trio of the board is, to put it mildly,
an outrage on the community. Perhaps,
like the lord high exeoutioncr of Japan,
in the play of "Mikado," this officious
trio consider it necessary for them to do
some execution in order to retain their
tenor of office. William Ross,
School Trustee.

A ritlzen's Opinion.
Editor Columbian.—At a meeting of
three trustees of the public school, held
in the council chambers, a report for
lost term was heard, accepted, and passed. Notice was also given that Mr.
Stramberg, principal of the high school,
was asked to resign, but refused, until
the ease was brought before the public,
and he tried for the same, and, if found
remiss, they might then discharge him.
All the gentlemeu presont heard this portion of the report with regret, and expressed themselves strongly ou the action
of tho trustees with regard to their asking Mr. Stramberg to resign without
showing a cause why. The answer from
the trustees was, We have no fault to
find with Mr. Sb-amberg as a teacher,
hut there arc somo ladies who say they
will not Bend their children to school if
Mr. Stramberg is retained, A question
was asked, "Ia there any complaint in
writing?" Answer, "No; but complaint
waB general." Thero, Mr. Editor, is the
whole in a nutshell. And I think it
would be a grievous wrong to Mr. Stramberg and an injury to our high school interests to dismiss a teacher who has dono
so well in the seven and a half years ho
has held tho situation, His character aB
a gentleman is unimpeachable, aud, as a
teacher, his record is before us. With
regard to the trustees, some exhibited too
much prejudice and selfishness to be able
to do justice in the matter. I would also
say the expenses of public and high
school eome out of tlie public treasury,
and the public have a certain right to a
voice in this caso. Bring forward the
complaints from the Injured parties, and
if Mr. Stramberg Is in the wrong, and
cannot redress it, let him go: otherwise,
better lose a number of trustees, than
one good teacher, as trustees' places can
always bo filled, but really good teachers
cannot always be found.1-' Citizks.
