A Bad State of Affairs.
Madrid, May 8.—The industrial situation in Spain has rapidly assumed a most
threatening aspect. Latest advices from
Barcelona to midnight last night represent the position tnaintaiiiud in that city
us being one which presents many of the
sinister phuHCS of social revolution. In
addition to the riots nnd excesses already
reported, it train of curs was prevented
from running, some of I hem being thrown
from the trucks nnd smashed. Mobs of
howling, threatening men marched to
the various newspaper offices and compelled the compositors to leave their
desks and swell the ranks of law dellers.
As a consequence of this action the newspapers of Barcelona have been comjiellod
to suspend publication. More ominous
than any other incident, however, is tho
sudden appearance everywhere upon the
city waits of flaming placards urging the
yet partially segregated demonstrations
to form themselves into n body for pillage aud the resistance of the preservation of law and order. Numerous engagements took place between the police
aud mob. Repeatedly have the police
charged the stubborn crowds nnd as
repeatedly have the policemen been compelled to retreat. Up to a late hour
in the evening the great city remained
under almost undisputed control of the
enemies of social order. Tho municipal
Government and the eiti/eus are seemingly paralyzed at the extent and
proportions of the sudden danger with
which they are confronted. Troops
were, however, on their way to the
panic-stricken city and during the evening three regiments of soldiers arrived
for its protection. Immediately upon
the entry of the soldiers the military
governor of the district appeared and
warned the striking workmen and mob
element that death would be the penalty
meted out to those who attempted to interfere with the liberty of action of such
men as continue at work. The
troops were then ordered to advance
upon the enormous throng which confronted them. Tlie crowd for tlie time
was cowed and Blowly and doggedly dispersed.
Midnight—All classes of people are
looking forward to u renewal of the turbulence to-day, and some alarm is felt
lest the old Gothic cathedral, the university, academies of art and science
and other great architectural works
of the city may be attacked.
Confidence Restored.
Babueloxa, noon, May 8.—In face of
facts that the continuance of yesterday's
disorders were looked for to-day, the
public market opened up as usual this
morning, numbers of workmen are also
resuming their occupations. With the
arrival of the troops has come an increased feeling of confidence, und the
authorities declare their ability to repress any further disturbance. Manufacturers and proprietors of shops have
beeu urged to Keep their establishments
open, and iu the event of their doing so
havo been guaranteed ample protection
from mob violence.
Double Harder.
Baltimohe, May 3.—Sarah Blimey,
aged 70, aud her daughter, Caroline
Blimey, aged 45, living at 1035 Green
Mount avenue, were found dead in bed
this morning, thei. skulls crushed nnd
bodies horribly mutilated. The house
was ransacked from top to bottom. Mrs.
lilauev sold noun, prupcrtv recently for
which she received $1,300 cush. The
coronor found $050 concealed in the old
woman's lied. A grandson of the old
lady, George Bhmev, who has an unsavory reputation, has been arrested ou
suspicion.	
<Jrf.it ntiirmi.
San TitASCiscn, May 3.—A dispatch
from 1/oiidon to the Merchants Exchange
this morning says that the British ship
Iuchcupe Rock, Captain Armour, which
left this city February 24th for Queens-
town with a cargo, of wheat valued at
$67,000, cleared by Wm. Dresback, hus
passed through a gale in which the captain and four of the crew were drowned
and her cargo jettisoned.
Want* Fair Flay.      *
Ottawa, May 3.—Mr. J. C. Rykert,
member of Parliament for Lincoln, hus
resigned his sent in Parliament. He
walked out of the Commons Inst night
amid a great uproar. Rykert was
charged by the Opposition with receiving $00,000 for using his political influence with the Government to secure
a timber limit iu the Cypress Hills,
North-west territories. The Government was paid $5,000 for the limit,
which wfls subsequently sold for $180,
000. Rykert said be had not heen treated fairly by the Government or the investigating committee, and would seek
re-election nnd fair play at the hands of
his constituents.
Social lie volution.
Madrid, May 3.—Anarchist "proclamations have appeared iu several of the
manufacturing towns of Spain. The
proclamations call for the holding of
meetings on Sunday, and conclude by
declaring that the time has arrived for
the inauguration of a social revolution.
The Hunored Dead.
London, May 3.—The question of prohibiting further interments iu AVest-
minster Abbey has now assumed an
aspect which promises success to those
who have long believed thut the practice
should cense. A Commission has been
appointed to consider the matter of
selecting a special place for the actual
burial of distinguished persons, which
shall be under the exclusive control of
the Abbey authorities, and interment
therein regarded as conferring the same
degree of honor upon tho memory of the
dead as a burial in the Abbey has hitherto done. In addition to this u suitable
memorial will lie deposited in the Abbey,
testifying to the worth of the deceased,
aud indicating his resting place. The
plans of the Commission also content-
Elate the ultimate removal to the new
ttrittl place of all the bodies now resting
in the Abbey.
Children Killed.
Hastings, Kug.. May 3.—A terrible accident occurred here to-day. A runaway horse ran violently into n van in
which forty little children were taking
an airing, killing four and wounding ten
of them.
JournalliiU In Trouble.
New York, May 3.—The grand jury
hus brought criminal indictments
against Joseph Pulitzer, proprietor of
tlte World; John A. CockerUl, cditor-iu
chief; Julius ('..ambers, managing editor, und J. F. Graham, city editor—all
of the same paper. The World has for
some time past been publishing sensational articles regarding Judge Wilton's
relations to the Stewart estate, und also
vague insinuations against the character
of Mrs. Stewart.

Mines will act rationally and not overload the market. ThiB is not so much

Brought to  Light.
Sachamesto, May 3.—Yesterday afternoon some men while digging in a lot
in the south eastern part of the city unearthed the skeleton of a man buried a
few inches below the surface of tbe
ground. Nothing but the bones were
found. About fifteen years ago a wealthy brickmaker, named Arthur O'Neil,
disappeared mysteriously and was never
heard of, and as he was last seen near
where the bones were found, and under
the influence of liquor, it ia believed
that he was murdered that night and
buried there.
Ottawa Notet.
Ottawa, May 2.—Mr. J. C. Rykert, M.
P. for Lincoln, has resigned hiB sent iu
Parliament. He walked out of the House
of Commons to-night amidst an uproar.
The resignation to-night was not n very
grent surprise. It was looked for and
might have been compulsory. Before
going out of the House Mr. Rykert said
that lie had not beeu treated fairly either
by the Committee or thu House. He
would seek re-election and fair play at
the hands of his constituents.

CORRESPONDENCE.
OUR FERRY.
Editok Coj.ujiuiax — Sir: Perhaps
some of your readers may remember
how terribly inconvenienced this city
has been at times, when steamers from
Victoria and other places have been
deterred from coming up the Fraser, on
account of the lack of a properly constructed boat, plying on the river day
and night during cold snaps, to keep tlte
ice broken and preventing it from forming in such large sheets, as would interfere with navigation. Well, although
not having intended to say anything
through the press on this Bridge vs.
Ferry question, it just occurred to mo
that this point in favor oftheferrv
might be overlooked, that is: By putting
on a good ferry, the river, below this
city, can lie kept for all practical purposes, free from ice during the coldest
winter. No man who knows nnvtliing
about the matter will deny that ii ferry
boat, built on the proper plan and with
powerful engines, would literally pulverize any ice that forms on the river, or
thut sueh a boat would be interfered
with in making her regular trips at any
season of the year.
A bout crossing und re-crossing at all
hours, day aud night, would so cut up
floating cakes of ice, us they were curried
up or down with the tides, thut when the
ice became stationary above the city
(as it usually does after u real cold snap
sots iu) all these broken pieces would bo
carried down and out the mouth of the ,
river; and anv more thut might form 5_._._,.!_li

below the jam nnd which would conic in
contact with the ice-smasher would meet
a similar fate and he carried far out to
sea. lam opposed to either cheap ferries
or cheap bridges. A cheap ferry—a live
or six thousand dollar one—could not
poBsesB the weight or power to break
down and go through ice of any con
worse than no bridge, as ten chances to
one the whole affair would go to tlte bottom the first winter, and leave us not
only without any means of crossing the
river, but minus nearly a quarter of a
ing to engineering science. I have read
every letter published on the subject
with the deepest interest, but none with
so much interest as that valuble one
contributed by Mr. W. £. Bovill. That
gentleman in bringing to the notice of
this community and pointing out the
merits of the pontoon bridge or bridge
of boats, has, in my humble opinion,
" hit the right nail on the head." I
have taken pains to find out wiiut the
public thought of sueh a project and discovered that of the many to whom
I spoke ou the subject not one had any
idea of what the structure was like or
how it was operated. Some thought it
too romantic and impracticable; others
said it would be merely temporary and
would be washed out by the ice, while
others again were under the impression
that it would seriously hinder river traffic and be so close to the water
that even small boats could not
get under it. If you will kindly permit
me, sir, I should like to meet those objections, having some acquaintance with
this style of bridge, und being deeply
convinced that Westminster's best interests will be served by tho construction of one.
First, then, nothing more practical
and serviceable than this bridge can be
conceived. We ure in tho heart of a
timber country mid the building of the
pontoons is the simplest job of carpen-
lory; these are floated out to their place
and securely moored with chains at
both ends; strong beams are laid across
from pontoon to pontoon then the floors
ing is put on, say six inches deep, threo
layers of two-inch plank and tho wholo
securely fastened to the beams and pon-
A neat strong timber guard rail
runs along the sides, and tlie floor of the
bridge has exactly the appearance of a
model street or a piece of fine macadamised roud. Foot passengers are accommodated at either side with two broad
sidewalks and teams can drive over the
bridge at any reasonable roud gait. From

be thought proper by the builders.
Second, it would take ten times aa
much ice as ever wub seen in this partof
the Fraser in one winter to wash away
. this bridge if the proper care is exercised'
[ in placing the anchors.   The ends of the
St&.££S! s±r^^oi^=i_j«^»?S
immediate means of crossing the river,
and this can best be dono by a first -class
ferry. Wo will then lie in a position to
entertain proposals for Howe-truss, pontoon, suspension, and other kinds of
bridges, and have ample time to make a
good choice and come to a rational conclusion in the mutter.
Yours, etc.,
Fkuiiy.
HR1DGR OF BOATS.
Editoh Columbian.—Sir.- Let mc,
prevent ice or logs bunging, and will be
sheathed with iron. As to being temporary, everything is temporary for that
matter, and the best bridges in the world
run away with a mint of money annually
for repairs; but this pontoon bridge
could safely be guaranteed to stund the
wear nnd tear of the Fraser for ten years.
By that time the city could amply afford
a magnificent steel structure.
Third, as to impeding traffic, any
bridge that is ever put across this river
will always do that, more or less, On
the pontiiou bridge ut the deepest part of
the channel, we shall suppose a split

what augmented my original estimate of open, leaving amnio passage for the
$50,000; and this I did because I was bv ju^est ship that floats in the Iraser.
The thing can be done with ease and
quickness. A bridge like this would
not cost more than $50,000, it could
be easily kept iu repair, could be
quickly constructed, and while not
so ambitious or imposing as a $150,-
000   bridge   would   be,   would   enjoy
no means certain at what point the
crossing should be made, and consequently what is the width und depth of
tlie channel to be bridged. On the other

Milwaukkk, May 3.—Serious forest
tires are reported to-day from the northern part of this state. Much damage
has been done around Mason, along the
Omaha road, where the woods are
ablaze, and two or three houses iu town
have been burned. The tire in the
stumps und underbrush between Hurley
aud Irondale spread with great rapidity
along the section bordering ou tho
mines from Ashland to Aurora burning
three or four miners' cottages. All
mills und factories at Itlce Lake, Baron
county, ure closed so the men can protect their homes.

shipments of conl. It must be remembered thnt owing to the strikers' combination nnd increased wages, l.uglish
und Scotch coals has been advanced four
or live shillings per ton above lust year's

for such a bridge as I suggest, that it

than double what a ferry would cost, if
prime cost only be considered. But it
must be borne in mind that the cost of
working the ferry, if kept open dny und
that fall to the lot of a cheap wooden
pier bridge. The pontoon bridge would
"give" to everything, would rise and
full with the tides, no storm could blow
it from its moorings, und the weather
would not affect it at till seriously. Its
elasticity'from flouting on the water
would ensure perfect safety in case of
heavy wagons and horses. There are

The bridge, however, has an advantage
over the ferry in that it would, of course,

a ferry could bo relied en to make more

therefore, ask those who have, what was aboard. The Algor has been out about
three months and has beeu cruising
along the coast und off the Cape. About
ten days ago she put into Neah Bay for
water, nnd here eight of the crew of
twenty-two refused to do nny further
work and asked to be put ashore. As it
would have necessitated the return of
the schooner to Port Townsend, Capt.
Minor thought that much trouble and
expense could be saved the Alger's owner if the men could be induced to resume work. He locked them up nnd
kept them on n bread and water diet,
but this was without good effect, nnd ns
it was impossible to mun the bouts without the men, Capt. Minor decided to
return to port. On arriving, the men
were allowed to go ashore, as to proceed
against them would cost much time and
the nnttire of the traffic on tho bridge
nnd forry respectively; nlso the distance
from bank to bank. The tratlie that
New Westminster wants is that of the
farmers, who nre, or soon will be, settled
in on the othor bunk of the river. They
would come into town to exchange or
sell their piodttce. New Westminster is
the natural market. It is not of
much uso to count the buggies, you
want to count the wagons. And these
I take it, will be found on a bridge
rather than a ferry. A farmer wants to
go straight ou his road and not chance
having to wait 20 minutes or more on
the river bank.

EARLY CLOSING.
Now that the fifth month of the year
has fairly been entered upon, and the
long evenings, so well adapted for outdoor exercise and sports are with us, we
believe thnt no one would be much the
worse off, but on the other hand, n grent
boon would bo extended to many most
deserving and hard worked individuals,
by the universal closing ot till stores during the slimmer months at some specified early hour of the evening. A very
old, but n very true, rhyme tells us that
"All work and no jilny
Makes Junk a dull boy,"
And the unfortunate man who has to
' puss his life from early on Monday until
lata on Saturday within the confinement
of a business house, certainly has but
little chance of developing his physical
powers or enlarging his intellect.
Indoor labor nt best muy be considered
nn unfortunate necessity, and, therefore,
nny menus calculated to give grenter
freedom to store-keepers nnd their clerks
deserve hearty support from tbe general
public. The practice of late shopping is
ono that can, wo believe, be very materially lessened by the exercise of trifling
thought. To most persons it makes
little difference if they make their purchases early or late. A small amount
of consideration on the partof customers
would do away with any necessity for
keeping the stores of the city open after
7 o'clock in the evenings, and when the
merchants saw that they were doing
next to no business after supper, they
would, we think, very speedily come to
the conclusion that their time and that
of their clerks might be very properly
utilized in recruiting their jaded energies by outdoor recreation.
Already many of our merchants are
availing themselves of the fine weather
to close their places of business at seven
o'clock in the evening. It seems
a pity that the good practice
not universal, and if it were so we think
the time would not be far distant when
every shop nnd store in town would fasten their doors during the few hours
some of them are now open after supper.
The early closing resolution of the
foundrymen and machinists, whereby
their employees will have a holiday
every Saturday afternoon from 3 o'clock,
during the summer months, which was
announced iu this paper yesterday, is
another move iu the rignt direction
which we are glad to notice and commend.
The matteris primnrilyoiieforthc purchasing public to consider, and if only
they mnke a point of doing their business in the early part of the day, we
think the merchants would only be too
glad for an excuse to make the evenings
a general holiday.
BRIDGE OR FERRY.
As our correspondent of yesterday,
Mr. O. B. Ackerman, doubtless express
the views of others as well ns his own
on the question of bridge or ferry, it will
not be unprofitable to consider other
points in his letter besides those touched on yesterday.
"It seems to mo," says Mr. Acker-
man, "that we are ns able to spend
"$160,000 on a bridge ns we arc to give
"the same amount to the Southern Rail-
"way, and in my opinion the money
"would be better spent on a bridge."
This expression is not very pertinent to
the question, except thnt its tendency
to put matters in a somewhat oblique
light, which is worth while correcting,
When wo voted the $150,000 to the
Southern Railway Company, it was with
the understanding that that sum wns to
be our definite nnd fixed contribution
towards certain clearly defined benefits,
including railway connection south with
the American transcontinental and
coast systems, a railway aud traffic ferry
from this City to Brownsville, and certain railway works within the City. The
ratepayers were certainly justified, in
view of the considerations promised, to
vote the comparatively small sum (aB
ugainst tho benefits expected to be realized) of $150,000 at tho time they did bo.
If tbey were disappointed to a certain
extent in the promises upon the strength
of which they voted the bonus iu question, that bonus has undoubtedly had
the effect, during the period of nearly
two years that it hns been standing, of
helping to float aud further the scheme,
so that it has not fulfilled an altogether
fruitless mission. Now thnt it has reverted to the City, however, it is the duty
of the ratepayers to put it to the very
best possible use, according to our present circumstances, and our present
light, and without any regard to the objects for which it wus originally appro*
priated.
But taking, for the Bake of argument,
Mr. Ackonnnnls method of reasoning
on thia point, viz.: "Thnt wo nro
"able to spend $150,000 on a bridge ub
" * * * to give the same
" amount to the Southern Railway/
and bearing in mind tho benefits we expected, and hnd a right to expect, to receive from the Southern Railway Company, conditioned on our bonus, nnd
comparing those expected benelits with
the consideration in the present case-
simply n traffic bridge—and it is'to be
reasonably feared that the sum mentioned would come considerably short
of securing that—it will be seen that
there is a pretty well developed and
dangerous fallacy underlying our correspondent's confident assertion.
We do not think any one giving the
subject proper consideration will agree
with our eoprcspendeiit when he says,
in another paragraph, that " it has
" nothing to do with Westminster how
" long Portland or New York got along
" without a bridge." Although we entertain a very high opinion of the Royal
City and its enterprising citizens, we do
not believe tbat either they or it hr.ve
grown so old, wise and clever us to be
beyond the possibility of profiting very
materially by the exgerience of much
older, considerably wiser (in point of ex-
peaience),and eminently successful communities.
Mr. Ackerman thinks that the reason
of the ferry at Portland being as well
patronized as the bridge must be from
force of habit, and introduces a comical
illustration to give point to his suggestion, concluding this part of his letter as
follows: "Westminster, be warned in
"time! Build a bridge at once for
" fear the people will become so accus-
" tomed to travel by boat that they will
" be compelled to keep up a ferry in the
" future (like Portland)." If our correspondent intended this entire paragraph as a joke, to relieve the dryness of
the subject, then the expressions contained therein do not require any further
remark, except that levity detracts veiy
much from the force of arguments in an
essentially serious discussion.
It may be said, however, that it requires no fine-spun or ridiculous theories
to account for the ferry (or rather ferries ; for, to our own knowledge there
are three or four ferries plying between
the city of Portlnnd nnd the opposite
side of the river) being as well patron-
ised us the bridge. Given n water front,
in the first place, of three or four miles,
with streets or roads coming down, at
regular or irregular intervals, on both
sides, aud it is as plain aB anything can
bo that traffic will not go, either a mile
or two, or very many yards, out of its
way, in a direction parallel with the
river, when a crossing can be found in a
more direct line. In the second placo,
a proper ferry crossing is, for all practical purposes, equal, and in some respects
superior, to that of a bridge. As a cor-
respondent in another column points
out, both foot passengers and horses
have a rest while crossing the river,
and, we might add, the crossing can be
made in considerably less time by a
proper ferry than by a bridge. This is
a point of considerable importance, and
would go far to compensate for any time
that might occasionally be lost by waiting for the ferry in the case of passengers or teams that chanced to reach the
river when the boat was on the opposite
side. A properly constructed ferry,
with moderately powerful engines, and
crossing tho river on a direct short
route, would shoot across in very brief
time, while vehicles of all sorts, as
well as horsemen, if not foot
passengers, would have to be confined -to a snail's pace on a bridge—especially a $150,000 one.
Mr. Ackerman reserves his heavy
shot to the lust. He says: "I have no
" faith in a ferry keeping the river open
" here on account of the tide shifting
"the ice so often." etc. Our correspondent has a perfect right to his individual opinion on this feature of the
case, and an equal right to express the
same; but a little inquiry into the point
thus raised will discover certain topical
characteristics and circumstances respecting the action and habits of the ice
on the river that will go far towards
mitigating the objection in question. In
the first place, it is not by nny means
the greater number of winters in which
ice worth mentioning is found iu the
river. In the second place, during the
occasional seasons that ice does form u
tangible obstruction for two, three,
or four weeks, it almost invariably
lodges after two or three days, and does
not shift any more, to speak of, until it
breaks up, and in its then rotten condition would interpose u very trifling
obstacle to a properly constructed ferryboat. It just amounts to this, then,
that for two or three days, possibly, in
an occasional winter, ice of sufficient
thickness and toughness to interfere # with the free passage of
the ferry would be in a shifting state on tho river, but even during that rare and brief period of difficult
navigation, the ferry could, if necessary,
unhitch from its cable and, it is safe to
say, make its way through any ice,
moving or stationary, likely to be found
on the river. This will not appear an
extravagant statement when it is remembered that the boat would have a
very strongly constructed, heavy hull,
partly sheathed in iron, with powerful
machinery, and a centre wheel, and
when the additional fact is borne in
mind that in other places on the continent, that will occur to some, at least,
of our readers, ferries, not proportionately heavier than ours would be, make
their wuy easily through as many feet
of ice ns we usually have inches on the
Frnser.
It Ib not out of plnce, after disposing of
the probable effect of the shifting ice,
during two or three days iu an occasional winter upon' the navigation
of a ferry, to reflect upon the possible ell'ect of the samo moving force
upon the piers of a bridge—especially a
necessarily cheaply constructed bridge.
A bridge cannot yield, or manoeuvre
with the ice, or retreat altogether for u
few hours, if necessary, like a ferry, but
bus to stand the force of overy concussion
during tho time the ice is in motion up
or down. We know what effect this
factor of shifting ico had upon tho North
Arm bridges last winter. Witli that
disaster in mind, we do not believe the
general public would feel very much
confidence, during the running of ice
floes, in the safety of such a long bridge
as would be required to span the Fraser
at this City, unless it were placed beyond the shadow of a doubt that tho
bridge had been constructed on the most
scientific engineering principles, nnd of
tho very best materials. The summer
freshets also, constitute another
strong reason why it would be the
height of folly for the City to sink a single cent in any cheap, experimental
bridge. Ample time and means should
undoubtedly be at our disposal before
the bridge project is definitely undertaken. In the meantime u proper ferry
is the thing, and the less time lost in
putting ono on the better.
In another column we print to-day
two well written communications, advocating a pontoon bridge. Our readers will agree, we think, after reading
them, thut such n bridge would be far
preferable, for n good many reasons, to a
$150,000 Howe truss wooden bridge. In
another article we shall suggest a few
comparisons, and also show, what we
conceive to bo good reasons, why a ferry
should be chosen at thiB time, in preference even to a pontoon bridge.

Properties on terms to suit.
SAPPERTON.
Lots in the Sub-Division of Lot 2,
Suburban Block 4, from $200 per lot.
These lots are mostly cleared, and are very sightly, commanding an unsurpassed view of the Fraser River in one direc
tion, and Queen's Park and the upper portion of the CRy in the
other. This property is only about one quarter of a mile from
the Brunette Mills, and is the best locality in Sapperton either for
residence or speculation.
Western Addition.
A few blocks and lots in the "Western Addition to the City of New Westminster, Sub-Division of Lot 172, formerly the White Estate.
This sub-division, consisting of 600 lots, was placed upon the
market by us a short time ago, and so eager were purchasers to
buy that the entire 000 lots were sold out within one month. We
are now offering tho above property at slightly advanced rates on
behalf of former purchasers. Those who missed the chance of
buying at first prices have yet an opportunity of investing at
prices that cannot fail to yield a good profit. We believe that
this is the best speculative property in the City of New Westminster.
SURREY.
5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Muni
cipality of Surrey, midway between the
Cities of New Westminster, B. C, and
Blaine, Wash., at from $30 to $40 per
acre.
This property is situated on the Hall's Prairie road, near the
junction of the Langley Road, the Yale Road, and the Clover
Valley Roatl, within 500 yards of the proposed station of tho New
Westminster Southern Railway.. The land is high and dry, and
the soil is first-class. Surrey is one of tho most prosperous sections of tho District of New Westminster, and is at present enjoying quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this proporty will get tho value of their money in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at the same time promises an. excellent
field for speculation.
NORTH  ARM.
146 aores in Lot 155, near the North Arm Road,
about 21-2 miles -west of the New Westminster City
Post-office, at $150 per aore.
This is lino fertilo soil, chiefly prairie, and lies woll. It
has becomo a maxim that cities grow westward, and New Westminster is proving no exception to the rulo. City lots west of
Edinburgh Street, along tho North Arm road, havo doubled in
value in loss than a yoar, whilo aero tracts have, in tho samo
time, in somo instancos moro than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Streot to tho Westorly City Boundary is
completed, tho North Arm will becomo the best suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expected by many that
the route of tho Electric Railway to Vancouvor will traverse this
section. Our shrowdost speculators aro realizing tho possibilities
of this portion of the City, and the many sales of aero property
in tho vicinity recently, indicate that land in the direction of the
North Arm is looked upon as ono of the best places for investment in tho District.    Pricos are bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of
City and Suburban Property, at moderate prices and

SAGE SAYING8.
True practical philosophy makes the
most of little pleasures, and the most
of every thing.
Harsh counsels have no effect; they
are like hammers which aremlways repulsed by the anvil.
We gain nothing hy falsehood, but the
disadvantage of not being believed when
we speak tbe truth.
Half the things which we groan ove
to-night will right themselves before tomorrow night, if we let them alone.
Good nature) like a bee, collects honey
from every herb. Ill-nature, like a
spider, sucks poison from the sweetest
flower.
Don't waste your ammunition on dead
ducks. Many a man gets into a wrangle
with some ono who is utterly beneath
notice.
It was long since discovered that
though it is easy to crown an ass with
laurel leaves, yet his ears will always
spoil the effect.
Those who would render their charities useful should diffuse them judiciously. He who would have a good crop
must sow with his hand and not pour
out of the sack into one heap
The chief secret of comfort lies in no.
suffering trifles to vex us, and in prudently cultivating our undergrowth of
small pleasures, since very few great-
ones, alasl are let on long leases.
If a man knew as many odd, queer
and mean things about others as ho
must know about himself, would he
bo apt to speak to them without considerable wear and tear of conscience?
Reverses may come, even to tho rich,
and when riches take to themselves
wings, practical knowledge of practical
life is by far moro felicitous to all concerned than tbat ignorance which unfits one for the prosaic struggle for existence.

Business Change.
Messrs. H. M. Cunningham A Co.
have concluded the purchase of the
stock and good will of Mesars, E, S.
Scoullar A Co.'s hardware houae, Columbia street, which has been in existence since 1878. The arrangements for
the transfc were concluded yesterday,
and stock-taking commenced to-day.
Messrs. Scoullar A Co.'s business has
been thriving and profitable from the
start, and through the connection so
long established tlie Messrs. Cunningham will have a valuable addition to
their present extensive trade. Mes
H. M. Cunningham A Co. will continue
to run both stores, maintaing a full
slock in each.
Texadn Alines.
Mr. Miller, discoverer of the Golden
Slipper, says there have only been three
prospectors onTcxada during the winter
and although the ground wns covered,
Mr, II. Kirk was fortunate in finding a
very rich ledge, and from the assay of
some of the rock it shows from $70 to
$100 per ton. Mr. Miller avers he
picked up a piece of float quartz weigh
ing about ten pounds and resembling
tho quartz discovered by Mr, II. Kirk
and after crushing it succeeded in extracting five ounces of gold from it. Mr.
Miller seoms very confident the work
that will be done on this claim this yoar
will satisfy the most sanguine, and
prove to a great many that there ia
more in Texada than most people suppose. Work on the Golden Slipper and
other claims will bo commenced as soon
as possible.

Law Library for Westminster.
In answer to a requisition made in
Fobruary by the members of the local
Bar for the appropriation towards the
founding of a law library in this city,
the Law Society have decided to allow
$1,000 for that purpose. While this sum
is small in comparison to the. yearly revenue derived by the Law Society from
the Mainland yet it goes to prove that
the importance of this city as a law centre ia becoming recognized by the Victoria Bar, The eight gentlemen who
were called to the Mainland bar a few
days ago contributed $2,000 to the funds
of the society. It ia to be hoped that the
society will make a further move in tho
right direction by making a further appropriation. The WeBtminster and
Vancouver Bar fully recognize the necessity there is fyr keeping up the library at the Capital where the Appellate Courts ait, and will nlwaya be willing to make just allowance on this account.
At tbe same time, Victoria, which is
deriving so much from the two Mainland
cities, should afford to yield to them
proper consideration of their wants.

Ln.urot.se    Practice
When the lacrosse season opened just
a month ago everything looked bright
and fair for Westminster, and it waa
acknowledged that the Royal City had
the best material in tho Province from
which to choose the champions for 1800.
The flame material is in tho City to-day,
but the men, with a few exceptions,
have not got down to practice yot, and
don't seem inclined to begin. While
the Vancouver and Victoria clubs are
practicing earnestly and steadily and
getting down to perfect form, the Royal
City men, confident in their superiority
are lying indolently back fondly imagining that all they will havo to do on the
occasion of the first match will be to pick
up a stick, saunter to the field and win.
Tliis picture mav be slightly overdrawn,
but tlie story tofd after the first match
will be plain, unvarnished facts; and
they will be most disageeable facts
unless the Westminster men settle down
to bard practice, and that without
delay. The Vancouver and Victoria
teams wilt both have had the advantage of a match before Westminster
crosses sticks in anything stronger than
friendly practice against a batch of
boys. This will strengthen the opposing teams, give them a chance to* fill
up weak places and put them iu grand
form for the second encounter, while, on
tho other hand, the Westminster team
will be entering upon the championship
series in poor condition and practice,
and a defeat in the first instance will
prove a serious drawback for the rest of
the season. All this, however, can be
easily remedied if the men will only
settle down-to hard work and show that
they mean to come out on top in the
championship series.
Tho Juniors have done their duty
nobly and can be depended ou to hold
their present laurels for the remainder
of the seaaon, and it remains with tho
Seniors to say whether or not the list of
victories is to be kept intact.

Messrs. Wilson nnd Hathcson havo
built a line boat-house at tho eastern] of
the Royal City Planing Mills wharf.
The houso is two-stories lu height nnd
rests on a platform laid ou cedar logs.
The whole structure is substantially
built and there is accommodation for a
large number of boats. Tho upper story
of tlie building will bo used as n painting room wliile tho lower portion will be
used as tlie bont-buildlng shop. Operations in that lino have already commenced and will be pushed with all despatch so as to cater to the summer and
full trade, if possible. The linn intend
to keep a line stock of boats on hand,
nnd of all kinds. The building establishment is practically completed nnd u
strong force of bont-builders will be put
to work ut once. This is something
Westminster lias wanted for n long time
and now thnt it has come it is to bo
hoped the enterprise will recelvo generous patronage nnd support.

Fought for Blood.
There wns n bloody nnd determined
stand-up fight nenr tho Clevolnnd Hotol
last evening. Tho combatants were twe
men remarkable for thoir stnlwnrt pro-
portions nnd strength. The quarrel arose
ovor tlio usual matter, whiskey, and one
of the men evinced a strong desire to
fight it out ou tho spot. Tho other man
was more peaceable and did not wish to
raiso any disturbance. The quarrelsome fellow, however, was not to be put
oft* and shouted for buttle, etc. At last
tlio peaceable man lost patience and
told hiB enemy ho would not fight in the
bar-room, but if he would kindly stop
outsido, every opportunity would bo
given him to relievo his bellicose feelings.
This challenge was accepted; and, as is
invariably tho case, tho man who hnd
boon so eager to light got thoroughly
tlirnshed, nnd every bit of brag-
gndocio knocked out of his composition.
Still, the struggle wns long and bloody,
both men displaying bull-dog courage,
Tho side-walk was covered with blood,
and the beaten man presented n gory
spectacle. Ono of tho city policemen
witnessed tho light from stnrt to finish,
nnd kindly refrained from spoiling the
fun for the crowd that gathered around,
by attempting any lnte.fo.ouco. In tho
morning, however, he drew out summonses for tho two pugilists, and will
hnve them bofore the bench on Mon-
day.

TO THE ELECTORS
 OP	
New Westminster District,
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of our late
representative (the much-respected D.
Chishohn) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay Wore you
some of my v.owb on the leading questions which I consider will arise in the
near futuro for consideration.
I have been asked what I mean whon
I announce mvself as a Liberal-Conservative j 1 reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but u
residence of over 30 years in tliis Province and much intercourse with our
Americun cousins has had the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
me liberal ideas, therefore I claim I am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that party lines nre not denned in
British Columbia as they are in the older
provinces, I consider that our representatives ure not in duty bound to givo a
through-thick-and-thin support to any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
ouon measures which may be brought
before them, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province iu particular, and
should n measure come beforo them
which they consider in any way detrimental to the interests of this Province
they should take their stand like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
tho Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We' aro a long
way from thu centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of cvery-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors .over the
line, and iu many cases the articles^'are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware aud other articles are brought from the States, although the duties are bo heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and are met with such heavy duties
that heads of families in this Province
pay move than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
We have hud example to the point during the last three months. If wo had
not received a good supply from California there would have been a meat
famine; us it is we arc now and have
heen paying 25 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the same state of
affairs is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
".Protection" for tlie last eleven years
our stock raisers are little better'prepared to meet hard winters thun they
were before, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
N. P. are tlie manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question, I would advocate " Reciprocity"
in many articles which are at present in the Tariff lists, as I think
it would be beneficial to botli
countries, and the working man would
not havo to go down so deep into his
poeketa to buy what he needs to eat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
have a revenue to carry on the affairs of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more and got at tlio pockets of tlie
richer classes who can better afford to
pay taxeB.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of the late Mr. Chisholm, he waa unable
to be in his place this session, and very
little during the previous one, so we of
this District have been practically unrepresented, und our local wants havo
not heen brought before tlie notice of
the House. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
been in his scat, I do not think the Postmaster-General would have beon left so
much in the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Fraser as he seems to havo been
when he proposed to cut off the mail
subsidy from thut important route, and
there are other places in the District
which need hotter postal facilities, which
I consider should receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope tbat in the near future our
District will reach that point that we
may look for it to be divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1501)
miles of territory, aud when the census
returns are in 1 think thu necessary
number of population will he found to
demand such additional representation.
The protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Kuiuas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also tlie works for improving
Hie channel at tho Band heads, In view
of the expected increase iu our shipping
interests.
1 consider the Province should have
control ovor all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Onr Fishing hiteresls, being of such
great importance to this District in particular, I feel should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delta lauds from tho mouth
of tho Serpentine to Fraser Kiver, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from the Fraser River to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to me.
Immigration, I consider, should bo
fostered, and encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coining here fast
enough; I would not like to see u largo
influx pour in at once, as manv would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
There are many other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would make
this addresB too long. I hope to Bee ub
many as possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send due notice of time and place of meetings.
During my long residenco in the Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
Houso in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I have the honor to be elected
I assure you I shall watch over the interests ot this District faithfully and to
the best of iny ability, not forgetting
that I also go as* a true'British Columbian and to do my duty as Bueh.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.
