A Florida Han  Takes a Peculiar
Method to Force a Widow
to Wed Him.
The Oxar Abandon.. DegpotUm.
St. Petersburg, April 20.—It is announced to-duy Unit tlto Czar, driven to
desperation by tile daily discovery of
new plots Against his life, in which oven
members ofthe nobility and officers of
tlie tinny and navy were implicated,
and yielding to the cut rentier, ol' his
wife and relatives, hat. at lust decided
in order to save himself from certain
assassination, to grant reforms. They
will have the effect of changing the
government of Russia from despotism
to one very nearly resembling the milder
repines of the moro enlightened coun-
ttl^ii of Europe. One of the moat sweeping of tho new measures will be the
abolition of punishment of" political
offenders by exiling them to Siberia.
The Czar is now said to be engaged
several hours eacli day consulting leading statesmen of the * empire regarding
details. It is also said that the Czar is
in favor of a House of Commons, and an
Elective Senate like the ono at Washington. Tho nobility, however, hop-
Ped to making the senate an elective
y, preferring that the membership
should bo hereditary as in the English
House of Peers. The freedom of the
press will also bo assured, subject to a
liberal censorship. The Czar himself
has great faith in his new policy, although it was forced upon him, and is
reported to have remarked that he
would booh come to bo regarded as the
real father of his people, and not be
compelled to travel about among his
subjects armed aB if surrounded by
tigers. According to current reports
8,000 Siberian prisoners arc soon to he
released.   	
No Beer, No Kntliu.iia.tm.
Berlin, April 20.—Tho Kaiser, while
he disapproves tho proposed manifestation on May day, does not think it advisable to interfere in any way. He
thinks it wise to let the demonstration
take place and lot the outcome be his
guide of action in the future. No special
measure will be taken to preserve order.
Ono of the socialist editors said to-day
that in Berlin at any rate the manifestations would not tako the character of a
procession as a means of expressing
opinion, this being abhorrent to'the
German, and especially.to the Prussian
minds. There would be a great many
open air meetings; the speakers at them
have already been designated. They do
not include any famous socialist deputies. Count Waldersec said that he believed in allowing workmen their will
in the matter of a demonstration on May
day. "There is, however, a humorous
side to the matter," added the Count.
If all the working men turn out the
brewery employees must turn out too,
and if there are no brewerymen there
can be no beer, and without beer where
is the enthusiasm to come from."

Nanubt, N.Y., April 20.-Garatt Demurest, aged 00 years, of Nyack, and Annie
'aimer, aged 40, of Sprlngvalley wero
found unconscious in u pool of blood on
road between Nyack and this place on
Wednesday night. They had hired a
buggy aud hud been out riding. The man
will recover but the woman is in a critical

A Forced Wedding.
Jacksonville, Fla., April 20.- Geo.
R, Hubby, of Fermmdina, agent of the
Malting tine of steamships, and Mrs.
Thorpe, a young and popular widow,
were marred thero yesterday under vory
strange circumstances. Mrs. Hubby
says that they were out riding in a carriage yesterday and that Hubby, after
professing great love proposed aud was
refused. He then in great excitement
drew an ugly looking pistol and threatened to kill her at once if she did not
consent. Overwhelmed by the awful
threat, she consented. He told her he
would shoot her down at the altar if she
did not keep her promise. Driving immediately to his residence, au Episcopal
minister was called in and the two wero
married. The minister said that the
lady made all the responses but fainted
when it was over. Hubby half supported her while he put tho ring on her flu-
f;er. He then went to hor parents and
nformed them of the marriage, which
astonished them grcatlv. Shortly after
the new bride escaped from the house
and fled to her parents at the Hotel Eg-
mout for protection. A police warrant
for Hubby was at once applied for. It
is said the sensaiional features of tho
case will bo made known soon.
Another  Crank.
St. Louis, April 20.—"On Monday,
April 28th, ut Carondelet, at 4 o'clock,
p. m., a great storm will commence
which will rage over the Mississippi Valley, washing away housesand destroying
hundreds of lives," at least so says tho
erediction received this morning by
bief of Police Huehler. The letter is a
long one. It comes from Henney, 111,,
and is signed Mrs. C. Cavendish. Her
letter also imparts information that she
is soon to marry a young man, Mr. Mullen, of California, "who is a line young
gentleman with dark complexion, black
oyos, black curley hair and is worth $1,-
000,000.
A Grand Farewell.
Nkw Yobk, April 20.—Adolina Patti
sails for England by tho Etruria to-day,
never to return. This she says herself.
Previous to leaving her Apartments at
tho Hoffman last night for the Metropolitan Opera Houso, a reporter said to
the diva,''Is It truo then, Madame,
that you never intend visiting New York
again?" " Yos, quite truo," sho replied,
" 1 can't bear travelling, I am not a good
sailor and these long sua voyages are
very tiresome to me. You can therefore
say that I will never sing in America
again after to-night." The scene at tho
opera was a remarkable one, overy bit
of space being tilled with excited people.
At tho conclusion of the first act tho recalls were as repeated as the applause
wus deafening. Thev wanted "Home
Sweet Home" but La Diva Intimated
in bewltchlg pantoniino that it
was too soon for that. It was therefore
when the final curtain fell that the most
extraordinary farewell ever witnessed
here took place. Patti was deeply
touched. Her voice trembled a bit as
sbe began the beautiful old air, and as it
swelled she regained perfect control.
Tlie great audience, so thunderous a
moment since, held its breath while
the melody filled the auditorium with
the golden tones of " There is no place
like home." It seemed as if the house
would never empty, so long did they
linger to applaud and cheer.
Ottawa Note..
Ottawa, April 25.—A special general
meeting of tho shareholders in the Shuswap & Okanagon Railway will be held
in Victoria on the 31st of May for the
purpose of considering a resolution to be
submitted to the shareholders, and, if
approved of by them of passing a resolution for the issue of bonds of the Company not exceeding $25,000 per mile in
pursuance of the provisions of the Act of
Parliament incorporating the said Company and for securing the bonds to be
so issued by a mortgage deed frith such
powers, provisions and stipulations as
may be described in said deed and may
he approved of by the shareholders.
Colonel Prior and Messrs. Mara and
Barnard left for homo to-night.
Mr. Chapleau's Bill to amend the
Franchise Act was passed to-day. Tlie
Banking Act was considerably advanced
in Committee before the House took up
the Supplementary Estimates. One
item which was carried was for the payment of $1000 us sessional indemnity to
tho heirs of tho late Mr. J. S. Thompson, M. P., for Cariboo.
The Liberal! Demorallied.
London, April 25.—The Liberals aro
at sixes and sevens regarding the Government's Land Purchase Bill, Mr.
Gladstone's speech having failed to impress their position or to encourage them
to make a determined fight. As the
matter now stands, the Bill is not likely
to meet any further real opposition
though it will be subjected to a number
of alterations during the committee
stage in respect to its compensation to
landlords which are really too numerous and extensive for many of the Government's adherents to swallow. Mr.
Parnell is coining in for a great deal of
hostile criticism among his followers for
springing his scheme as he did, the
opinion being that it waB not only inopportune, but that in failing to take
the Irish parliamentary party into hiB
confidence he displayed a lack of
courtesy and implied a measure of proprietorship of the Nationalist membership iu the House which his colleagues
are disposed to resent. As a matter of
fact this resentment, not only on the
part of the members of his own party,
but on that of many of his Liberal allies,,
has become so pronounced that Mr.
Pamell may be said to have been sat

We have had the gratification of seeing no less than three steamers on the
river this week—the Win. Irving, the
Gladys and the Delaware—all keeping
regular time and each carrying its fair
share'of freight up and down stream.
The farmers are verp busy taking advantage of the favorable change in the
weather, and seeding and planting and
fencing go briskly on apace.
It is sad to record tlie occurrence of
two deaths ou the line of the Southern
Railway, at Hall's Prairie, where a falling tree, during the clearing of the track,
caught two of tlie working party, young
men, and crushed both so severely as to
cause almost immediate death.
Thore was a meeting of the Langley
branch of tho Central Executive of. the
Mainland Association held in the Town
Hall here last evening, Mr. Henry Harris, president, in the chair. The minutes
of the last meeting having been read
and confirmed, the proceedings, which
wore taken at your meeting in New
Westminster last week, to exprees disapproval of the provisions of tne bill to
amend the Constitution Act now before
the Legislature Assembly, as reported
by the press, wero read at the request of
the president, when it was moved by
Mr. Otway Wilkie, seconded by Mr.
Wilson Towle, aud carried, That we entirely approve of the resolutions passed
at the Westminster meeting of the Central Association attended by our delegates Messrs. Harris and Davis.
Moved by Mr. John Maxwell, J. P.,
seconded by Mr. Jas. Drununond, and
carried, That the resolution just road be
re-read for the information of the members newly arrived.
Moved by Mr. Drununond, seconded
by Mr, John Norrls, and carried, That
this meeting disapproves in the strongest terms of the Government expenditure of public moneys in Vancouver
island, as compared with the sums voted
to the Mainland districts, and to the
disproportionate number of members
representing the divisions of the Mainland, us compared with the Island; and,
consequently, wu altogether object to
tho Bill to amend the Constitution Act,
now before the Legislature, as being unjust and inequitable.
Moved by Mr. Otway Wilkie, seconded
by Mr. Wilson Towle, and carried, That
copioB of the foregoing resolutions be
forwarded to Messrs. Orr, Ladner, and
Hon. John Robson, M. P. P.s,andtothe
secretary of the central executive of tho
Mainland Association, (which was subsequently done.)
There nre quite a number of visitors
dropping in from day to day here in
search of farms, and our useful and active
mail contractor between this place and
Port Haney, Mr. Otway Wilkie, has
listed rather a goodly number of ranches
and building lots iu this municipality
and elsewhere, information relative to
which he gives to passengers coming this
way ou prospecting business, thus aiding
in Ihe advancement of our well-favored
locality, and proving of much service
and convenience to incoming enquirers.

! SI'EECH FROM TUB THRONE.
His Honor then delivered the following speech from the throne:
Mr. Speaker and Oentlemenof the Legislative Assembly: "In relieving you from
further attendance at this last session
of the fifth Parliament, I desire to express the pleasure which I have ex-
ferienced in my intercourse with you.
must congratulate you upon*the
marked advancement made by the
country during the term of your service,
which may iu a great measure be attributed to wise legislation and liberal grants you have made for
the prosecution of useful works' and
encouragement of important industries.
There is overy reason to anticipate
that the many liberal and important
measures to which I havo just assented
will tend still further to promote the
prosperity of our province. Especially
is there reason to hojie that the liberal
aid and encouragement given to railway
construction iu the interior will operate
aB u stimulus to the development of the
great minora! wealth and settlement of
the fertile lands.
It is gratifying to know that at last
actual work has commenced on the Shus-
wap A Okanagon and Columbia A
Kootonay Railways.
Tbe arrangement which my ministers
have succeeded in making with the Dominion Government for the sole aominls-
(.ration by this province of the precious
and baser metals within the railway
bolt, will, it is confidently anticipated,
tend to stimulate the mining industry
of that tori'itoiy.
Tbo liberal provision you havo made
for exploration and surveys throughout
the country cannot fail to exert an important influence upon immigration and
settlement, and will result In making
the resources and attractions of the province better known, both at home and
abroad, and enable immigrants to find
desirable homesteads without difficulty.
The amendment to the constitution as
a partial and temporary measure could
hardly be expected to "meet the wishes
and expectations of every community.
I hope, however, that it will ultimately
commend itself to alt as the best measure that could be adopted under the
circumstances.
I thank you for the generous grants
you have made for the ensuing year, the
expenditure of which will, I assure you,
Ire made with due regard to economy
and the public interests.
In now taking leave of you at the close
of this your last session, I desire to assure you of my best wishes for your welfare, and I congratulate you upon retiring from the arduous labors of a protracted session with the consciousness
of having, at no slight personal sacrifice,
rendered valuable service to your country.
Honorable John Robson, Provincial
Secretary, then said: "Mr. Speaker
and gentlemen of the Legislative Assembly: It is the Governor's will and
pleasure that the legislative Assembly
be prorogued until it shall please His
Honor to summon the same for the dispatch of business. This Provincial Legislature Assembly is hereby prorogued
accordingly.
The entire proceedings were finished
iu half an hour.
The weather was beautiful, and the
scene very attractive indeed. After the
ceremony thene was a great deal of
handshaking and farewells among the
members, the most of whom leave for
home to-night.

Among the passengers yesterday for
the north per steamship Elder bound for
the Stickoeu river, Cassiar, to engage in
hydraulic mining, were Dr. Von Hos-
locher, Judge Sheppard, Messrs. Peter- '
sort, Yon Hoslochcr, Earle and Capt.
Brown. These gentlemen have taken
with thorn a targe quantity of provisions
anil mining supplies, as well as twenty
Chinamen to bo employed iu preparing
the mines for being worked. The most
of these gentlemen propose lo pass the
coming winter in that country, ub they
are backed by large capitalists. They
arc determined to prosecute the work
vigorously, and if the metal is found, as
it is believed it will lie, in paying qualities, the present party is only the van-
guard of a larger one. Capt. Brown has
taken two horses with him, which will
be used in transporting provisions for
further prospecting. His wife, who is
now in this city, will follow tho captain
in a mouth, and both propose to pass
the summer in that northern portion of
this Province. Of the old Cassiar hands
there went also Messrs. Porter and Mc-
Bluro. In all the Elder had about 150

The annual report for the Department
of Fisheries was brought down in the
House of Commons on the 10th. It
states that "with tho exception of the
province of Nova Scotia, which shows a
decrease iu the yield of cod, mackerel
and herring, aucf that of Manitoba where
a slight falling off is noticed in tho catch
of pickerel, pike and tuliibee, it is satisfactory to be able to state that the fishing industry of the Dominion Ib iu a
thriving condition, and shows a general
increase of $230,745 ovor the yield of last
year. Iu thiB connection the Province
of British Columbia takes a leading
rank, showing an increase of nearly
twelve million pounds of salmon in tho
canning industry." The total value of
the fisheries of Canada for tho veur 1889
is as follows: Nova Scotia, $0,340,722;
British Columbia, $3,348,007; New
Brunswick, $3,007,030; Ontario, $1,903,-
122; Quebec,$1,870,104; Prince Edward
Island, $880,430; Manitoba and North
West Territories, $107,0711; showing an
aggregate of $17,055,250, as against $17,-
418,510 for the year 1888, or au increase
of $2.10,045. This increase is made up as
follows: British Columbia $1,445,872;
New Brunswck,$120,170; Ontario. $123,-
204; Quebec, $10,181; Prince Edward
Island, $89,508. The othor provinces
show a decrease as follows: Nova Scotia
$1,470,308; Manitoba and North West
Territories,$12,997. The foregoing is exclusive of of the consumption by Indians
iu British Columbia, which is giveu at
$2,257,500, and that of Manitoba and the
North West Territories also estimated
at $58,000. The most valuable fish product was cod, which amounted to $3.-

QUID   NUNC?
Only yesterday wo wero wondering
what on earth possessed the "Czar of oil
" the Russias," that he should continue
to exist in constant and mortal terror of
his life from his despot-ridden subjects,
when, at a word, he could exorcise the
terrible Furies that were surely and
swiftly closing in upon him; and, from
a hated tyrant, whoso life was not
worth a moment's purchase among his
justly outraged and fratricidal subjects,
be sincerely hailed—from tlio Baltic to
tho Bosphorous—from Poland to Kamchatka—not only as the White Czar,
but as the real and true Father of his
Country.
s To-day, tho dispatches inform us that
the C/ar, driven to desperation, and at
the earnest solicitation of his wifo and
other relatives, has cut the Gordian
knot, and unhappy Russia is ot last to
bo allowed a taste of the freedom under
which other modern nations have boen
basking for more than ft century. A
House of Commons, it .8 said, will be
established immediately, an elective
Senate is talked of, the liberty of the
press and freedom of speech nre to be
assured to a considerable extent, banishment to Siberia abolished as a political
punishment, and thousands of exiled
prisoners recalled! It almost takes
one's breath away to contemplate the
Czar's new programme, and to consider
the momentous results that, will follow
its carrying out in Russia and in
Europe.
Promises of reforms, under such
stress as has been brought to bear
ni)on the hereditary despot of
Russia, require, however, to lie realized
—it is hardly safe to take their fulfilment
for granted, however much we may desire it. After all tbe plagues of Egypt,
which caused his hard heart momentarily to relent, wo are told that Pharaoh
" repented that ho had let the people
" go." Everyone knows the subsequent
courso and the swift and terrible fate
that overwhelmed the Egyptian despot.
We only trust that the- Czar may be
more steadfast in hia good resolves, even
though they are they are not the product of the worthiest of motives.
interview, the report of which was published in this paper the other day, the
greater part of the expense in passing
the by-law has already been incurred,
and by its passage now the Council will
be furnished with the necessary authority for commencing work immediately,
thus gaining a month or Bix weeeks of
valuable time that would be lost if the
by-law were defeated with the view of
carrying a second by-law providing for
appropriating the money for street in*
provements out of the bonus refund, os
has been suggested. The money of
course, may be taken from this source,
in any event, but in the meantime the
work could be going on under the authority borrowed from the present bylaw.
In this connection, too, the contingency must be considered that the ratepayers may decide in favor of undertaking the construction of a traffic bridge
in the very near future, aud thus require the railwoy bonus refund for that
purpose.
Therefore, considered from every
standpoint, it will be seen, we think,
that the safest and best course, in the
City's true interest, is to carry the
Street Improvement Loan By-law, on
Monday, and every ratepayer Bhould
take sufficient interest in this, as in all
public questions affecting his own and
his neighbour's welfare, to record his
vote.

-)}REALie
A  BUSINESS-LIKE   PROPOSITION,
The only real bu..mess-like proposition
that, has come to the front since tbe
Ferry-Bridge question became on immediately live issue, owing to tbo matter of providing traffic facilities acroas
the river having been thrown definitely
and finally upon the City hy tho last
action of the Southern Railway Compauy, is the proposal which, wo hove
been informed, on good authority,'an
eminently competent and -practical
bridgo builder is prepared to make to
the Council. The gentleman iu question, who is none other than Mr. Balfour, the celebrated C. P. R. bridge
builder, aud who is at the present time
overseeing the Mission bridge, for that
Company, and the North Arm bridge
re-construction for tho Government,
states that he can put up a traffic
bridge across tho river at this point at a
cost of $150,000, aud is prepared
to give $50,000 bonds to guarantee the structure for five years.
The bridge, wo understand, would
be constructed entirely of wood, with
the exception, of course, of tho necessary iron iu construction, and would lie
what is known as the Howe truss variety. Mr. Balfour says that our British
Columbia fir, affording as it does great
length of timber and superior tensile
qualities, is greatly valued and largely
lined by the C. P. R. for bridge building purposes, and that no better material could bo got for building hucIi a
bridge as he would agree to construct
for tho sum named. The bi'Mgu would,
of course, have a proper draw for the
passage of river steamois and general
shipping; but, for the .urn mimed, il is
not expected thut huJTh ■ iu.it headway
could be obtained to admit ol' the-ordinary river traffic passing under the
bridge—thus necessitating tho working
of the draw only for sea-going vessels-
result which, it must be admitted, it Is
high!} desirable to attain in a bridge
spanning tho rivor at this point. How
ever, it will be for the Council and the
ratepayers to decide whether they would
prefer tn take half a loaf in bridgo mat-
tors, immediately, or wait longer
for a more costly and comploto structure,
The proposal of Mr. Balfour is one, at
any rate, which if laid before tho Council, as wo undci stand it will be, is entitled, by Us doflnitenoss, directness and
business-like character, as well from thu
undoubtedly competent nnd trustworthy
source from which it comes, to receive
the most careful and practical consideration. ____-___.
STREET IMPROVEMENT,
On Monday tho ratepayers will vote
on the Street Improvement Loan By-
Law, to be found on another page, for
authorizing the borrowing by tho City
of the Bum of $80,000 for the improve-
incut of certain streets. A perusal of
tho by-law will show the various streets
upon which it is proposed to spend tho
sums specified hi opening and improving
—altogethor,as we have already express'
ed the opinion, a woll considered and
comprehensive plan of work for the
season.
The improvements contemplated in
the by-law nre so desirable and necessary, on the most cursory examination,
and the benefits which have accrued to
the City from similar works of tho last
year or two nre so apparent, that It is
generally conceded the by-law will be
carried with practically no opposition,
Thero is one reason that might, perhaps, induce some to refrain from voting
for or to oppose the by-law, and that is
the alternative scheme of taking the
money required for street improvements
out of the $150,000 railway bonus refund
but as Mayor Brown showed, in an

-AND	
Thk experiments recently made in
France with smokeless powder, observes
an exchange, reveal ono of the new con*
dltions under which war is hereafter to
be carried on. In the manumvres which
took place recently on the plateau east
of Champigny was seen, for the first
time since the introduction of gunpowder as an instrument of warfare, a considerable force, representing all branches
of the land service, all engaged, and all
rapidly firing, and yet every man on the
field clearly visible. There were present two regiments of infantry, a battalion of riflemen, a regiment of dragons,
two batteries of field artillery, and all
behaved themselves precisely as if engaged in a life-and-death struggle, and
yet there was not the least obscuration
of the field or the actors on it from the
presence of smoke. So far as we can
learn from tho descriptions that have
reached ub there was not the slightest
film or bozo visible in the atmosphere.
The rapidity of the fire has been compared to the roll of multitudes of drums,
and yet not the slightest effect was produced in this respect. Absolutely no
smoke wos visible.
One of the effects of the use of this
nowly-invented explosive will bo to effectually destroy one of the readiest and
most trustworthy means of discovering
the location of concealed marksmen,
who from the cover of woods or shrubbery may be pouring ft deadly fire upon
their opponents. The tell-tale puffs of
smoke that, have so often revealed the
hiding-place of the sharpshooter may be
regarded as a thing of the post. On the
otber hand, troops not under cover will
find it impossible, as heretofore, to conceal their movements under the clouds
of friendly smoke from supporting batteries. It will oIbo have the effect of
putting bright and showy uniforms at a
discount. Everything that makes the
soldier a particularly conspicuous object
will be a decided advantage to the enemy. So deeply aro the military authorities of Franco impressed with this that
the red trousers, the most picturesque
thing about, tho clothing of the French
soldiers, are said to be already doomed.
What effect it will have upon the red
coat of the British army, which has
been hallowed by so many thrilling associations and which has played such a
conspicuous part in so many a well-
fought field, is yet to be seen.
The adoption of this kind of explosive
by ono country creates a necessity for
its adoption by all. ThiB was seen, in
the mauieuvres iu Germany which took
place BOino time ago, iu which the
smokeless powder was used on one side
and the common black powder on the
other. Whatever advantages the new
explosive has over the old must be
shared by all in order to their going ou
equal terms into any conflict which may
arise. This was strikingly illustrated
in the autumn mauieuvres in Germany,
where for the first time tho merits of
this new powder wero tested on a large
scale. The corps having the black powder wus completely handicapped by the
relative facility of manoeuvring afforded
thereby to ita adversary. But whatever
may be tliondvantages of this innovation, und whatever changes it may
occasion iu modern warfare, it will increase ralh-jr than mitigate the horrors
of the battle field. It will give to fighting a more murderous character, as the
random firing into the ranks of the
enemy will exist no longer, but Instead
of it deliberate aim and intent to kill in
every shot that is fired. And there will
bo no longer a curtain to hide from the
eyes of the soldiers the ghastly spectacles which aro immediately around
them, The strain upon the nerves of
young soldiers, especially those of them
who ure receiving their baptism of fire
aud of blood, will be greater than it ever
was beforo. Ab ono observer remarks:
" Experience has proved that many
" men who fight steadily turn faint and
" sick in a field hospital; how will it be
" then when the two experiences are to
" a certain extent combined?"

other. This property is only about one quarter of a mile from
the Brunette Mills, and is the best locality in Sapperton either for

Western Addition.
A few blocks and lots in the Western Addition to the Oity of New Westminster, Sub-Division of Lot 172, formerly the White Estate.
This sub-division, consisting of 000 lots, was placed upon the
market by us a short time ago, and so eager were purchasers to
buy that the entire 600 lots were sold out within ono month. We
aro now offering the above property at slightly advanced rate's on
bohalf of former purchasers. Those who missed tho chance of
buying at first prices have yet an opportunity of investing at
pricos that cannot fail to yield a good profit. We boliovo thut
this is the best speculative property in the City of Now Westminster.
SURREY.
5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Municipality of Surrey, midway between the
Cities of New Westminster, B. 0., 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 Koad, the Yale Road, and tho Clovor
Valley Road, within 500 yards of the proposed station of tho Now
Westminster Southern Railway. Tho land is high and dry, and
the soil is first-class. Surrey is one of tho most prosperous sections of the District of New Westminster, and is at present onjoy-
ing quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this property will get the value of their monoy in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at tho same timo promises an excellent
field for speculation.
NORTH  ARM.
146 acres in Lot 155, near the North Arm Road,
about 21-2 miles west of the New Westminster Oity
Post-office, at $150 per aore.
This is lino fortilo soil, chiefly prairie, and lies well. It
has become a maxim that cities grow westward, and New Westminster is proving no exception to tho rulo. City lots west of
Edinburgh Streot, along tho North Arm road, have doubled in
value in loss than a year, whilo acre tracts', havo, in tbe same
timo, in some instances more than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Streot to tho Westerly City Boundary is
completed, tho North Arm will become tho best suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expected by many that
the route of the Electric Railway to Vancouver will travorse this
section. Our shrewdest speculators are realizing ihe possibilities
of this portion of the City, and the many sales of acre property
in the vicinity recently, indicate that land in the direction of the
North Arm is looked upon as one of the best places for invest'
ment in the District.   Prices aro bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of
City and Suburban Property, at moderate prices and
on favorable terms, of whioh we invite examination,

Wanted to Save Their Necks.
The most comical mishap that ever
befell a Are engine, occurred recently
at Toledo. The noise of an approaching Are apparatus startled a atxty-flve-
year-old countryman and his wife as
they were making their way along the
sidewalk. To grab his wife's green
umbrella and rush into the middle of
tlio street directly in the path of the
oncoming steeds was tho work of a moment for the excited farmer. His gyrations and shouting brought the horses

The Agent Met Her Match.
1 "I was settling down to work," said a
business man to a Boston Globe reporter, "when a pretty woman entered
my office. No one would suspect that
she was a book-agent. She placed a
volume in front of mo and began to talk.
I told her I would not buy the book if 1
really wanted it. 'Never mind,' said
she, gaily. 'It won't cost you any thing
to look at it.'
"As sho desired, I did look at it I
read tho Introduction and thon chapter
1. It was about ton o'clock when I
opened the book. At eleven o'clock tho
protty book-ngont had bocome uneasy.
I nevor raised my eyos. Another hour
and sho was pacing up and down the
floor. At ono o'clock, when she had
noarly worn horsolf out, I laid the book
down, and, putting on my hat and coat,
said to the thoroughly-exasperated
woman: 'That's a clover hook; I regret
that I oan not road more of it, but I
must go away to dinner.'
"Sho was mad, but she didn't say a
word. Grabbing the hook, she shoved
it into her saohel and make tor the
street."

Last evening the liody of a mini was
found floating in about 3 feet of water
off Beacon Hill, Victoria. Upon being
brought ashore it was found to bo the
corpBO of a man about forty years of age,
named Thomas Christie, lie hud evidently been in water 3 or 4 hours. His
hat and coat lay on the rocks by the
water. He was troubled with erysipelas
and appeared downhearted. The indications are that ho committed suicide.
His will was found in hiB valise In his
oabln on Store stroet. Ho is said to
have possessed considerable proporty in
the city.   An inquest will be held.
Important Hallway We-m.
It is reported a despatch was received
this morning from Mr. Kelson Bennett,
president of the Fairhaven Southern
Railway announcing that Messrs. E. M.
Bradshaw & Co. had been awarded the
contract for building the wharf at
Brownsville, necessary for the landing of
the steel rails, now on the way, for use
on the Southern Railway. The wharf
it is stated, will be 740 feet in length.
It is understood the contractors have
been notified to commence work immediately.
In connection with the above a des-
Sateh was received from Fairhaven to-
ay by Mr. James Leamy, ordering him
to double the number of men forthwith
working on the right of way contract,
and to push construction to a finish
with the greatest possible speed.
The Best Advertising Medium.
Mr. C. G. Major, of "Major & Pearson,
called at The Columbian office yesterday and asked us to withdraw an advertisement relating to Brownsville property which had been inserted the
evening before. Ho said: "The Columbian bad not been out half an hour
when people were climbing over each
other's shoulders trying to get to our
office first to secure the property. Both
lots, aggregating $13,000, were sold in
hall an hour after tho paper was issued
and it was your advertisement that did
it." Thjs statement is short, sharp and
to the point, and It shows conclusively
that The Columbian is tho best advertising medium in the City when it is desired to reach the largest number of
people in the shortest space of time.
Messrs. Woods, Turner A Gamble paid us
almost tho same compliment last week,
and half a dozen other instances might be
quoted which have occurred within the
last ,30 duys.

Mr. Douglas .Retires.
Mr. B. Douglas haB written to his
friends stating that after careful consideration he has finally decided to not to
accede to their wishes and become a
candidate for the representation of New
WeBtminBter District in the Dominion
Parliament. Tho withdrawal of Mr.
Douglas leaves tlie Held to Mr. G. E.
Corbould and Mr. AV. B. Townsend, the
only candidates now seeking election.
It iB very probable that one of these two
gentlemen will retire, and that tho election will be by acclamation. The writ
for the election is now on the way from
Ottawa and should arrive within a few
days at most. Mr. Sheriff Armstrong
will fix the date for nomination ana
voting, and it may be confidently ox-
Kected that tho vacancy will be filled
efore the end of the coming mouth.
The retirement of Mr. Douglas is said to
be due to pressing business matters
which will not allow him time at present to enter politics.
Y, M. 0> A. Reception.
A reception was hold at tho Young
Men's Christian Association last night.
Seventy ladies ontl gentlemen woro pro-
sent. Tho evening was passed in social
conversation nnd garnet., crokonole being the favorite. A short musical and
literary programme had boon prepared
by Mr. J. C. Morrison, chairman of the
committeo on social and literary work,
which waB very well rendered, after
which all partook ot cako and lomonado
furnished by the Ladles' Auxiliary. Tho
evening passed very pleasantly.
second question bears on that. The
Government have received a communication from the Government of British
Columbia respecting. the necessity of
taking measures of this description, but
this communication does not give any
particulars whatever—does not say
where the injury is being done, or what
the difficulty is that is to be dreaded,
and it is precisely on those points that
the Government is getting information.
Hon. Mr. MclnneB (B. C.)—When
did you receive the communication?
Hon. Mr. Abbott.—I am unable to
say, but it iB not long ago. The New
Westminster Board of Trade had called
tho attention of the Department to the
necessity of protecting tbe river near the
mouth of the Sumas River, and that is
whore the work will be needed. A
thorough examination iB to bo made to
determine what is necessary to protect
the navigation of the river,
miscellaneous notes.
We learn that a proposal bas been submitted to the Hon, John Carling, Minister of Agriculture, in favor of establishing a weekly newspaper at Ottawa in
the interests of Immigration. It is
suggested that the proposed publication
almll contain a weekly compilation of
official reports, Experimental Farm reports, bulletins, climatic, labor, market
and other returns, exclusively colloctcd
and revised for tho bona fide guidance of
intending emigrants. It is claimed that
the work could be done nt the seat of
Government at less expense for a whole
year than for the issue of a single edition
of handbooks, by an expert editor,
whose heart was in tho work; that it
could be ninde a powerful aid to the
immigration policy of the country; that
It would save its cost iu answers to civ
quiries alone; nnd that it is reasonable
to suppose that a properly conducted
publication of this kind would derive
sufficient revenue in a short time from
advertisements to meet most of the ox-
new WESTMINSTER MARKET.

In tlie Fraser River Improvements—

I from On» Own Correspondent.]
Ottawa, April 18.—Sir John Macdonald told a Kingston deputation that
thero were ninety-five applications for
Government aid to railways, totalling
♦10,000,000. The Government has concluded to shut down on granting bonuses
except In desirable cases.
A prominent gentleman from the
Northwest Territories who is now in the
city, referring to Inspector McGibbon's
testimony before the Public Accounts
Committee about his having charged
travelling expenses for himself, his
teamster and clerk, said: "You ought
to bo in the Northwest to see how those
men mako money hy travelling around
and charging expenses to the Government. McGibbon's teamster and clerk
consisted of a carpenter's boy whom he
carried around with him. The two
lived on the Indian agenta at the various
places visited, spending several days at
each agency—though most of the agents
can til afford to feed them—but charging living expenses in tho accounts sent
to the Government.
In tho Senate yesterday afternoon
Hon. Mr. Abbott announced that His
Excellency was expected to como down
to the Senate, on Monday or Tuesday,
to givo the royal assent to bills passed
hy both Houses.
Hon. Mr. Prior's motion in reference
to the future appointment of Senators
by Provincial Legislatures was allowed
to stand till Monday.
The greater part of the afternoon session was taken up in discussion upon
the Walker divorce case, the bill being
finally passed by a vote of 21 to 10,
Fltl.SI.KTK ON THE Fl.AKJ.lt,
In the Senate Hou Mr. Mclnnes (B.C.)
rose to enquire: 1st. Is it the intention
of the Government, during tho coming
summer, to devise such means as will
Krovent further destruction of property
y the Fraser River washing away large
areas of valuable land at Sumas and
Chilliwack, and doing serious injury to
navigation? 2nd. Has the Government
received any information from the Gov
eminent oi British Columbia on the
subject; If so, when, and what wns the
nature of it? 3rd. Has the attention of
the Government been called to this matter by the New Westminster Board of
Trade, or the Municipal Council of Chilliwack; if so, when?
He said: Beforo asking these questions I desire to say, for the information
of the House, that the two points indicated in the tint question aro situated
between 60 to 75 miles from the mouth
of the Fraser River, and that tho Fruser
River within the last sixteen years, to
my own knowledge, has actually changed
its bed ovor }.{ of a mile. The
settlements of Sumas and Chilliwack are
situated in one of tho moat fertile, and
probably one of tho most beautiful valleys to be found in any country. The
soil is all alluvial soil, of from 10 to 21
feet in depth, nnd, owing to huge logs,
or rather trees, that aro carried
down with the spring and summer
freshets lodging ut certain points iu the
river, tbe current has been diverted towards the south bank of tho river, where
it is composed of this rich alluvial earth,
and enormous quantities of land are carried away each year. Not only are
there large quantities of farm lands
boing destroyed in that way, but the
chances are that unless some way Is
found to arrest this destruction of property it will gradually carry awav the
entire valley and convert it into a sandy
or waste desert. Not only should steps
bo taken to prevent this groat destruction of private property In consequence
of tho encroachments of tho river hut
something should be done by tlie Government to prevent It Interfering with
tho free navigation of tho rivor. A
largo amount of shipping passes up and
down the rivor at these points, nnd my
private opinion—not only my own opinion but the opinion of a great number of
competent men who have knowledge of
such undertakings,—is that if a few
pilos were driven or a few largo trees
woijp anchored nt the mouth of the Sumas River, at a certain season of the
vctir, the current would lie diverted, and
the water would be thrown back in a
short time into its original channel,
thereby preserving tho navigation of the
river, and preventing further destruction of proportv,
Hon. Mr. Abbott.—In answer to my
hon. friend, I have to say that the Government has already expended very
large sums on the navigation of the
Fraser Rivor, and It Ib quite prepared to
do anything further that might be required to protect it, or to protect its
banks from being destroyed, or to protect its channel from being divorted,
which I hear there Is some possibility
may be dono, by taking part of it
through the territory of a foreign country ; nnd at this moment they are making inquires nnd obtaining information
as to the precise nature of the work required to 1)0 dono.  The answer to the
pense.
A deputation of representatives of
leading bankers waited upon the minister of finance to-day to make further
representations against some of Jthe
provisions of tbe new banking act. The
Bank of Montreal has been organizing u
combination of the strong banks for the
purpose of securing a limitation to tho
provision which practically obliges the
wealthy financial institutions to secure
tlie Jiotes issued by their weaker rivals.
The provision with respect to Government inspection is also objected to by
the bankers, who say that it must of
necessity be valueless, and will tend to
create a false feeling of security in the
minds of note-holders and depositors.
Unless every branch of a bank was inspected at the same time, they say that
the inspection would be of no use whatever, as funds and securities could be
transferred from one branch to another
for purposes of deception. The delegates who waited upon the Government
to-day also protested vigorously against
tho clause to tho effect that the Government shall take for public purposes all
unclaimed dividends and balances which
for five years havo not been claimed.
Thoy regarded it as an interference in a
contract made between banks and depositors and claimed it was without precedent. A cable to London, England,
on the subject was answered "unheard
of; would be considered gross confiscation nnd dishonesty." A letter from
New York said "there is no such forfeiture as you refer to in either the
National or State banks."
The committeo to enquire into the
statements made in reference to tho furs
taken from Charles Bremner, met again
this morning, Mr. McNeil in the chair.
Mr. Burgess, Deputy Minister of the
Interior, was sworn. He produced the
evidence and report of the Northwest
rebellion claims commission upon the
Bremner cuse. The report showed that
the commission admitted tho value of
the furs to be s)5,010, and refused to
entertain Bretnner's claim, because,
being a rebel, he contributed to his own
loss. It was decided to summon Mr.
McDonald to appear before tlte next
meeting and the committee adjourned
until Wednesday next.
Mr. Ogilvie, the gentleman who assured tbe people thnt au increase iu the
duty upon flour would not increase the
price of that article, haa just sent a circular to Ottawa bakers andjgrocers, notifying them that tho price of flour bus
gone up fifty cents per barrel.
Senator Clcinow has withdrawn his
proposal to strike out the Thompson
amendment with reference to the dual
language system from the Northwest
Territories Act, and when the motion ia
made to go into committee on tbe bill ho
will move tho following amendment:
" That it is not in the interest of this
country to agitate the question of changing such provisions of tho constitutional
law of tho NorthwcBt Territories, now
proposed to be amended, which give the
people of thoso territories tho free use
of both tho English and French languages
in the proceedings of their legislative
assembly nnd in the recording and publishing of the same,"
An* amusing scone occurred in the
Senate chamber last evening on tho conclusion of tlio debate upon tho Walker
divorce case. Senator Kaulbach spoke
for about an hour nnd twenty minutes
on the third reading of the bill nnd then
wanted to postpone further discussion
until to-day. Senator Sanford twitted
the Nova Scotian on the length of his
speeches on such topics nnd succeeded
iu making him vory angry. Both then
left the chamber and the wrangle wns
renewed in tho lobby. It at Inst became
so hot that the burly Mr. Kaulbach took
the preliminary steps towards giving the
Hainiltonlau a severe pummelling. Mrs,
Allan fortunately appeared on the scene
and rescuing tho latter lead him out of
harms way.
Tho eighth roport of the Parliamentary Printing Committee, presented to
tho Senate yesterday and to lie considered on Monday, recommendB that 2,000
copies In English and 500 iu French, of
tho evidence taken before the Alien
Labor Committee, he printed for distribution; also 100,000 copies of a map
showing a "comparison botwoon Ontario
and nine states of tho United States."
It recommendB that Toronto University
bo furnished with copies of all the statutes und records since Confederation;
and thnt the salary of John Wiltshire,
messenger of the Distribution Ofllce, ho
