The Procession a Failure.
London, May 1.—As the labor procession was passing along the Thames
embankment, a crowd of 500 roughs attempted to create a tumult. The
twenty-five hundred policemen lining
the emlftuikment, however, promptly
suppressed the attempt, und thoroughly
cowed the rough element. The police
authorities have announced that the
carrying of torchlights will be rigidly
suppressed. The indications now nre
that the demonstration at least as far as
the parade is concerned, will prove a
fiasco.

A Madman's Deed.
Salt Lakb, May 1.—Alma Pratt, an
inmate of the Territorial Insane Asylum,
at Provo, obtained possession of a razor
this morning, and going Into the dining-
room, where Sing Dee, a Chinaman, was
washing dishes, threw him to the floor,
thinking he wns the devil, as he afterwards stated, and in an Instant whipped
out the razor, and with one sharp forcible swing, almost severed tho Chinaman's head from his body; Pratt
was seized and disarmed by the attendants.' Pratt Is a son of tho late Farley
P. Pratt, who for many years was one of
the Apostles ef the Mormon Church.
Last week he tried to commit suicide by
jumping down a woll just outside tbe
asylum building.
States court respecting the constitutionality of Secretary Window's recent order. As permission to go to Mexico will
be refused, an early test of tlie order
may be expected. Collector Phelps is
inclined to the belief that if the ruling
iB allowed to stand, it will not be long
before direct communication will be
made between China and Mexico.
"How does the ruling affect Chinese
passengers iu transit to British Columbia?" "I cannot answer that question
positively," said the Collector, "but I
expect to have official notice about Chinese going to ports in British Columbia
and am inclined to the belief that an
uggrement will be affected as to persons
iu transit to that part of the. roust as
well as to Mexico. If there are many
Chiuese on the China bound for Victoria, and I receive no instructions from
the Department, I shall not be able to
prevent them being transferred. However, I feel certain that the information
will reach here before the arrival of tlie
China. My instructions from the Department regarding nassengers to Mexico have only reached me by telegraph,
but I shall refuse to transfer any Chinese
persons to steamers going to Mexican
ports unless otherwise ordered." If the
case comes up, the Chinese will fight
the order most bitterly.
floyal Academy Pictures.
London, April !W.—The special press
view nt tlie Royal Academy was given
to-day. In respect of the attendance
and the excellence of display it was an
average exhibition, though the notices
in the evening pupers are moro than
usually complimentary. The most
prominent exhibits are by Sir J. E. Mil-
lais, Alma Tadema, Benj. W, Leaderand
Sir Frederick Leighton. The most conspicuous of the works of Sir J. E. Millais
is a portrait of Mr. Gladstone, which is
a strikingly bad likeness. The face has
a bilious look, which is accentuated by
giving to the ex-Premier's face an appearance of fleshiness which is not warranted. The expression, too, Is an unhappy conception, and quite foreign to
that which Mr. Gladstone is wont to
wear. Mr. Tadema has only two portraits, both of which are good. Mr.
Lender's landscapes are superb. Sir F.
Leighton presents three classics, all of
them excellent. The display is small as
regards numbers.

Ohlneie Immigration.
S...V Fbancisco, April 80.—On the ar
rival of the China from Hong Kong,
which is expected shortly, it is possible
thnt a test will be made In the United
Leech River Mining.
W. E. Stevenson, the chief stockholder of the Gordon Hydraulic Co.,
returned last evening from Leech river,
where the works of the company are
situated. Mr. Stevenson went In for the
purpose of starting work for the season,
and five men are now at work and two
more will be sent in. A large sluice,
three feet wide and two feet deep, haB
replaced the old ditch, and there is at
present ample water tor piping. There
is a great deal of snow still in the
mountains, but the hot weather of the
last few days has caused it to melt rapidly, Leech rivor having risen seven feot
in twenty-four hours. The company
ure determined to fully tost the ground
and feel asBiired that when a clean-up is
made in tho fall they will have a handsome return In gold. When work was
begun in tho faco of the hill last year,
two days piping gave a return of sixteen
dollars, If the mine proves a paying
venture, other ground will also likely be
worked, fully rive miles of good-looking
ground being available. There has been
considerable adverse opinion concerning
probublo results at Leoch rivor. "Far
off fields are greenest," and perhaps it
is because Leech rivor is so near Victoria that so much pessimism prevails
about its gold-producing character. It
is to be hoped, however, that tho pluck
and enterprise of the Goi-don Hydraulic
Co. will lie amply rewarded, for tholr
success would provo of groat benefit to
this city.—Wtinetday'* P-toni'il.

Train Thin Horning.
This morning tlie 7 ;40 train for Van
couver was Borne minutes late in starting, and when she pulled out of the depot she was run at a more than usually
high rate of speed to make up the time.
As the train approached Mary street,
Mr. Win. L. CiiBuck, travelling representative of Messrs. H. J. Pitts A Co., of
Victoria, came from the sidewalk at the
foot of Mary street and stood waiting for
the cars. He carried a small valise and
light overcoat iu his left hand and was
smoking a cigar. Just before the train
reached him he mode a slight signal for
the engine driver to slow down, but it
evidently wub not noticed; he then
grasped tlie railing of the baggage car
with his right hand, was swung round
violently against tlie sido of tlie cur and
fell to the ground, his feot being towards
the wheels, Tlie leg seemed to be under
the wheels aud almost iu au instant lie
was dragged under tlio train whero lie
was seized by a brake beam whirled und
smashed around for a distance of fifty or
sixty feet and thon flung out a mangled and battered wreck on tlie track.
• The injuries wore of the most allocking description. The left leg was completely torn from the body, the pelvis
process being completely exposed. Tlte
body from the waist downwards was
torn and smashed beyond description.
Strange to say, the head, hands ami
arms were uninjured with the exception
of a small cut on the sculp. The train
had such momentum that she ran right
up to the ferry slip before she could be
brought to a standstill. The engineer
then uocked down und the railway officials viewed the remains. The men
were terribly shocked nt the awful spectacle, and Conductor Trodden could not
speak. The mangled remnants were
then collected together and covered with
newspapers and cloths, and the police
immediately notified the coroner, Capt.
Pittendrigh, who summoned a jury without delay. A large crowd gathered to
view the body as it lay under the cloth,
and nothing but the * Biucercst expressions of sorrow for the untimely end of
the poor gentleman and horror at his
dreadful fate were heard. The remains
were taken charge of by Mr. Fales, aud
after being casketed were despatched
to bis home iu Victoria by the 1 o'clock
train.
The deceased was a native of Woodstock, Ont., but before attaining the age
of 25 he left that city, and has not resided there since. He lived a short time
in Toronto and then went to South Africa, making Cape Town his residence for
nearly two years. At the urgent solicitation of his relatives he returned to
Canada and engaged in commercial life,
first with a Hamilton firm nnd lutor
in Montreal. When the Manitoba
boom set in in 1881 he became very enthusiastic over that country, and went
heart and soul into organizing a grand
colonization scheme. His party readied
the Northwest in the spring of 1882, and
settled at Virden, then the end of tlio
track, Mr. Cussack opened a general
store aud for a time did a thriving business, but bad crops, early frosts and other misfortunes almost impoverished the
farmers, who had been largely credited
at Mr. Cussack's store, and tlie result
was that he could not run the business
profitably and was forced to sell out at a
heavy loss. Having been ottered u position with the firm of Messrs. S. J. Pitts
A Co., Victoria, he loft tlie Northwest
six years ago and came to British Columbia. He has been in the employ of
the above named firm continuously
since his arrival, aud proved himself ii
most valuable and popular salesman.
"Will," as he was.familiarly known,
travelled the settled portions of the Province many times, and was a great favorite everywhere, and his terrible deatli
will be a severe shock to his wide circle
of friends. Three years ago he married
the daughter of air. S. L. Kelly, of
Victoria, and two children were born
to them. The shock to Mrs. Cusack
will indeed be terrible, and she will
have the warmest sympathy of nil in the
irrecoverable toss she and her children
have sustained by the sad accident this
morning.  ^^^^^^^^^

jury, viewed with them the body of
W. L. Cusack which lay on the approach
to Mathers and MilHgau's old wharf,
and then retired to tlie city hall to hear
evidence.
The first witness was Mr. Michael
Hayes, merchant of Front street; hia
evidence is as follows:—This morning
about 8 o'clock as I was coming out
from breakfast I saw the train for Van*
couver coming along; it was going at a
more than usually fast rate. I noticed
Mr. Cusack, tho deceased, standing about
three or four feet from the track, at the
west side of Mary street. He had a
smalt valise in one hand and a cigar in
his mouth. I beckoned to liim to signal
the engine-driver to slack up, as the
train was going more quickly than usual.
Mr. Cusack did so, but the train did not
slacken speed. Just beforo deceased at
tempted to board the train a young man
jumped off tlie very step deceased tried
to get upon. Deceased seized hold of
the hand-rail nnd waB swung backwards
against tho car, then ho fell to the
ground. He must have caught the
wrong rail. He fell two or throe feet
away from the wheels, but immediately,
as it seemed to me, made an effort to
get up, aud whether it was hiB clothes
that were caught in the wheels, or
whether he stumbled against them, I
could not say, At any rate lie roso
partly up, and, like a flash of lightning,
fell backward under the wheels.. I nm
under the impression that it was his
coat that caught in tbo wheels. Then
he was right under the car and was
rolled over and over for a distance of
about 60 or GO feet before he finally got
clear of the train. I think tho brake'
beam did the rolling as It Is so low down
that a human body cannot go under it.
I ran up to where lie wus tying in the
middle of the track and found him horribly mutilated. He did not make a
move and I think death must havo been
instantaneous. The train ran a distance
of two hundred yards before coining to a
standstill; she then backed down to the
fatal spot, Regarding the speed of the
train I cannot tell what rate she wns
travelling at, certainly faster than any
man count walk, She was going considerably faster than ordinary, I would
not like to try to jump on a train going
at the rate she was travelling.
Mr. James Wise noxt Bwom, said that
about 8 o'clock this morning the Vancouver train was running along Front
Btreet. I wus standing at my store door
watching her coming up; tho train was
composed of a locomotive and tonder.
three or four freight cars, a caboose and
two passenger oars. As the locomotive
came opposite to me I saw engine-driver
Kennedy leaning out of the cab ou tho
river Bide, his hand on Iho lovor, he was
on the look-out aliead; tlie stoker was
In exactly tlie same position on tho
other side, the street sido, and be was
ringing tlie bell. Tho doors of the bug'
gage cars were open and several railway
officials were standing looking out. Just
as this car was panning mo 1 saw Mr
Cusack step forward at Mary street to
board the train. He was walking fast,
As soon as 1 saw his Intention I Involuntarily said to myself, "They're going too
fast for you, Cusuck."   The next  thing
I saw was deceased clutching tho hand
rail of tlie cur, then he swung away aB
if he hnd beeu knocked off, and feil to
tlio ground on his left Bide with his feet
towards the truck. It seemed to me
that tlie wheels passed over one of his
legs nnd as I run to him,Isaid, "There's
one leg gone at all events." I kept
my eyes on him the whole time I was
running and almost in an instant he was
caught up and whirled under the train
where I saw him one moment in a
crouching position, on his hands and
knees, his hands on the ground. I was
-.artly behind tho train at the time aud
I could see him being smashed and
turned round and round and the brake-
beam grinding him to pieces. The
wheels passed over the lower part of
his body several times. When I reached
the body I raised his head n little and
closely scrutinized the face and eyes,
but life was quite extinct. One leg, the
right, was lying out across tho rail and
wus not injured. Tlio lower part of
the trunk was horribly mangled and almost severed froih the upper portion.
The train was going very fast. I am a
pretty fair runner for a man of my age,
but in my run to the train I gained nothing on it, Tho train backeddown to the
scene of the accident and Conductor
Trodden nnd other officials got off and
viewed the corpse. Thoy were deeply
affected by the harrowing spectacle, especially Mr. Trodden, who could not find
wordB to reply to my questions.
A friend of thu deceased came into the
room at tho close of Sir. WiBe'sevidenue
and wished to know if it wus a usual
practice to slack speed for passengers at
Mary street. He was informed that the
train would stop if signalled.
T. C. Atkinson, P. Si., said that this
melancholy affair only showed the urgency of compelling the railway company to run at a low rate of speed inside
the corporate limits, and lie hoped the
jurv would strongly urge this.
Tlie verdict of the jury is as follows:
Tiiat the deceased, William L. Cusack,
of Victoria, came to hiB death by being
run over by a railway train, while attempting to get upon the same while it
was in motion. The jurv strongly recommend the railway company to prohibit passengers from getting on or off
trains which are iu motion, and that
trains be not allowed to travel within
the city limits nt a greater rate of speed
than four miles per hour; and that notices to that effect be poBted in prominent places iu the station.
CORRESPONDENCE.
ItllinUK VJEKSUS   FEKKY.
I-ditoh Columbia a.—Sir: As theabovo
question is now before the public, perhaps the following remarks may be in
place: Is this place sufficiently large to
justify such a large outlav for a traffic
bridgo, say $150,000, bntfiow much more
is not known. 1 think most people will
agree thut the first estimate is not invariably the lust one. It may be said
that the contractor biudshimself to complete— but without doubt he would require advances. If half the sum was
advanced, would the city be prepared to
lose that if it could not be completed, or
would thev, like many others, have to
give more than the first estimate to save
the advances? When complete, would
tlie traffic pay the interest and depreciation on such a work, tt being all wood?
If free, as some suggest, why should the
city he taxed for the benefit of a few
residents ou the other side of the river?
If people residing cither up or down the
Fraser have to nay rail or shipping
■barges, it would be manifestly unjust to
them tu be forced to compete with
iieople living iu the vicinity of the
n-idge, supposing it is made a tree highway.
If Now York, with all its population,
and Brooklyn nnd Jersey City opposite,
could go ou for so many years witli only
steamers, does it not seem rather too
progressive for this city to spend so much
i bridge? Yours truly,
Rkadik.

Mil. CODVILLE'S YKKDICT.
Editoii Coi.umiiian—Sir: — Having
noticed the card of Mr. Wm. H. Ladner,
iu this morning's News-Advertiser offering himself ns a sacrifice-offering on the
altar," and aa thero is every prospect
of others coming forward in the next
few days to hurl themselves upon the
"altar," some for their country's good
and others again for the good of themselves, causes me to pause and consider before plodding to any of thoso
aspirants for sacrificial glory, and ask
the question—"What is your altar, anyway ? Is It to help the chosen favored
few to scramble for and gobble up the
acres that the Almighty meant for the
many? If so, you are left. Is it to encourage and protect a herd of lepered
Chinese idolaters to fasten their unhallowed fangs ujion the birthright of
ourselves aud of our children, to take
the bread from our own flesh and blood,
and to drivo our women to tlie wall, so
that this moral, political, social, ana (if
not soon checked) national curse can
be left handy to the beck and call of
their admiring patrons? If so. you are
left.   Does it mean that the toilers, the
Eroducers and those that labor for an
onest living must be ground down under a nine or ten hour system, and all
chances for improvement iu their educational, physical and social prospects
be blasted, so as to give somo a chance
to grow rich nt tho honest and honored
toiler's expense ? If so, then you are
left. Again, does it mean to have shortsighted, and weak-kneed politicians concoct and have passed "lieu laws" weaker
still, and so loosely put together as to
enable those so disposed to client the
workingman out of the sweat of his
brow? If so, you aro most assuredly
and deservlngly left again. For these
ore some of the strong and sound planks
in the platform that ib to carry the successful aspirant through to the haven ot
his ambition, and those not fully prepared to sacredly pledge themselves to
those principles, and to many others of
the same calibre, must make up their
minds to be left at home, for the work-
ingmen of this enlightened constituency
have fully made up their minds not to
accept nny half-way measurer*. Our
motto is:
Give mi- an 0|><m, manly, fin*,
That I may mcot him. perliupr. avert tlio blow,
Hut of all tbo curse's an uimrv Heaven run

Until you hear from me again, I remain,      Yours truly nnd sincerely,

THURSDAY EVENING. MAY 1. I
BRIDGE OR FERRY.
During the last few weeks we have
printed communications on thin subject
from nearly every possible standpoint of
the question. To-day, a correspondent,
■ ' Bender," who is not incompetent to
speak on the subject, puts forward some
very pertinent suggestions and queries
which the Aldermen, as well ns the ratepayers, would do well to consider. Our
correspondent tritely remarks that" tbo
"first estimate is not invariably the
"last one." Nearly any one who has
hnd anything to do with nny constructive work, of greater or less magnitude,
will be nblo to heartily corroborate this
epigramatic statement of a fact of almost
universal experience. Be it a house, a
church, u steamboat, a bridgo, or a railway, pretty substantial " extras" can
be counted ou, us a rule, to develop
themselves before the completion of a
given work und swell the comparatively
modest " first estimate" to a considerably larger sum.
Thia fact is so well known by the majority of people, and especially by designers and contractors for all classeB of
work, that it would not be worth while
calling attention to it but for the fact
that it may be overlooked when considering the bridge proposal now before
the City, and for the reason that thoroughly practical and intelligent men do
not invariably carry the samo common-
sense rules by which they would regulate their private business into public
affairs. When Mr. Balfour states, for
instance, in all honesty, that he can
construct a bridge across the Fraser for
the sum of $160,000, and have it completed by next spring, practical business men, viewing the proposal from an
every-day business standpoint, would
very likely calculate on an increased expenditure of not less than $50,000, and
an addition of several months to the
time limit. As much should undoubtedly be dono wheirpublic instead of private interests aro involved.
Somo othei questions advanced by
our correspondent aro well worth con*
sidering, although we cannot agree with
all his assimiptioiifrnnd inferences. For
example, we think our correspondent
rather depreciates tho extent of tbe traffic to be accomodated by either a ferry
or bridge in his expression "a few resi-
" dents on tho other side of the river,"
We cannot bco the force, either, of our
correspondent's contention thnt it would
be "manifestly unjust" to those who
could not avail themselves of free traffic
communication with this City, but hud
to pay rail or shipping charges to reach
our market, to be forced to compete
with people whose favorable situation
in the district enabled them to avail
themselves of Bitch communication.
Westminster would be only to glad to
furnish, or assist in furnishing, the
cheapest nnd most convenient means of
inter-communication with every district
and settlement within reasonable reach,
and desirous of mutual trade relations,
but those nearest and most easily
reached will naturally have the advantage. It can not be denied, however,
that it would be unfair for this City to
tax itself to stand the whole charge for
constructing and maintaining a tree
trailie bridge across tho Fraser at this
point, as the work is not merely a local,
but a Provincial one.
Our correspondent's final question, it
must be admitted, contains a pretty
Btrong argument in itself, if carefully
considered: "If New York, with all its
" population, and Brooklyn and Jersey
" City opposite, could go on for so many
" years with only ferry steamers, does
" it not seem rattier too progressive
" for this City to spend bo much on a
" bridge?" The same argument might
be drawn from the circumstances of
Montreal, which, with its 250,000 population, and towns and villages opposite
aggregating 25,000 or 30,000, not to
speak of the populous district south of
the St. Lawrence, tributary to that city,
haB not yet got any other means of truffle communication (except the railway
bridge) than by ferries. Tlio city of
Quebec, ou the same river, with the
towns, villages and settlements opposite,
furnishes another oxample of tlie continued use of ferries, where tlio traffic is
incalculably larger than can be looked
for between this City and the districts
south of the Fraser for years to come. In
Portland, Oregon, we have another instance of the same kind nearer homo,
where, with a population on both Bides
of the river eight or ten times larger
than here, ferries have met all tho demands of traffic for years, and even the
building nnd operation of a bridge, quite
recently, does not appreciably divert any
more traffic from the ferries than if it
were merely an additional ferry itself,
Speaking ■ about tbe bridge recently
constructed across tho Willamette at
Portland, it iu worthy of note that this
structure, spanning a river certainly not
more than half as wide aa the Fraser,
cost (200,000, being a Howe trusB bridge,
the same as Mr. Balfour proposes to construct at this city, the only difference
being that tho Portland bridge Ib a combination bridge, that is part wood and
part iron, which would, of course, add
to the comparative cost. Nevertheless, $150,000 seems a very small sum in
comparison for which to construct so
long a bridge as would ho required to
span the Eraser opposite this City. Not
that we question for a moment Mr, Bal
four's honesty in making the proposi
tton, or his ability to carry it out, but
the conclusion is unavoidable that
a $150,000 bridge would bo, a bridge, undoubtedly, nnd as good a one sb possible
for the money, but a very cheap nnd inferior articlo, it Is to be' fcured, for its
requirements. And a cheap and inferior bridge, one which would interfere unduly with navigation, and fail to
command the public confidence as a safe
means of transit, would be infinitely
less valuable than a good ferry; would, in
fact, be a dead loss and damuge to the City
instead of an advantage and a benefit.
We believe Mr. Balfour la a practical
man, and can build a perfectly suitable
bridge across the Fraser, if the City
can afford the necessary wherewithal;
but $250,000 would be nearer the mark
than the smaller sum that has been
mentioned, for such a bridge aa is required—and which the City should unquestionably build, if it undertakes the job
at all—and the main question thus becomes, can the City afford to shoulder a
bridge at this time, when an expenditure of $20,000, or $80,000 at the outside,
would establish a means of communication that the experience of other localities has shown will meet all require
meats satisfactorily for. several years
yet, and give time to go into the bridge
question thoroughly and deliberately,
instead of taking hasty action in the
matter now, that the City might have
cauBe in the near future to abundantly
regret?    __^_^_m_m_—_^mm__m

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 fino fertile soil, chiefly prairie, and lies woll. It
has become a maxim that cities grow westward, and Now Westminster is proving no exception to the rule. City lots west of
Edinburgh Street, along tho North Arm road, have doubled in
value in less than a year, while aore tracts have, in the same
time, in somo instancos more than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to tho Westerly City Boundary is
completed, the North Arm will become the best suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expectod by many that
the route of tho Electric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
section. Our shrewdest speculators aro realizing the 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 investment in the District.   Prices are bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of
City and Suburban Property, at moderate prioes and
on feworable terms, of whioh we invite examination.

HE KILLED  THE MULE.
How an Irish-Indian Got Ahead of Governor Uushyhaad.
Bushyhead, one of the members of
the Cherokee commission, Is In Wash-
ington, and many a one, sajs the New
York Tribune, passes the Indian ohief
without knowing he Is an Indian. He
Is tall, brown of skin, but has the features of the Caucasian race, and it is
said tbat he is not more than one-eighth
Indian.
He married some years ago a niece of
Senator Butler, of South Carolina, who
had gone out to Tahlequah as a teacher.
A good story is told of him when he was
Governor of the Cherokee Nation. The
Cherokees are tho most civilized of all
the Indian tribes and ono of their laws
is in favor of prohibition. The law of
the United States is that no one shall
give or soil fire-water to an Indian, but
the Cherokee legislators go further and
prohibit tho bringing of it into the Ter-
1 ritory.
In Tahlequah, when Itushyhead was
Governor, there was an Irish blacksmith named Mike Dolaney. Now,
Mike hud boen received into the tribo
because ho had married a squaw, and,
strange as it may seem, was more an
Indian than any native. He iiBed to
unite by tho hour over his forgo at the
wrougB of the h ^ men, and one of his
favorite perorations-, was:
"Wo havo beau persecuted by the
white man, dhrlvcu from our homes in
Georgia over mountains un' valloys, an'
our noble inheritance) stholcn away
from Hri,"
Mike froqi.oi.tly delivered himself of
tliis und the morn Ilro-wator he had in
till.) the more flaunt 1-mouthed and un-
liuliau wa.i lib brogue* He und Bushy-
head wero great friends, and one day
when the Governor" was at tho courthouse presiding over the mooting of the
Legislature the squaw-man appoared
and beckoned imperiously.
"Come horo," he whispered, "Oi've
something to tell you. Thoro's a dead
mule in town." A "dead mule" is Western slang for a keg of whisky.
"Givo me a dollar," continued Mike,
"an' I'll buy a bottlo aa' koop it in the
shop until yez cun bo afturr eomin' to
dhrink it."
Tho Govornor gave the money and,
half an hour later, deputizing some one
tu tako his place, he mado his way to
the forgo. From afar off ho heard the
inspiring strains of tho "Irish Washerman," and as he drew near he recognized tho oft-repeated refrain, "Och,
hone, Widow Maehroo, och hone, Widow Machree," tho molody stoutly maintained by an anvil chorus. Ruslumr In,
ho was confronted by tho hilarious
hi uuknii.it!., whom he at onoe asked for
hifisharoof tho "dead mule."
"Bo aisy, Guvnor," cried the Irish-
Indian, "there';, only two hools left, an'
I'll drink that, as the law's agin' givin'
un Indlau whisky."
And he swallowed tho rent, the Governor of the Churokeo Nation not daring
to provont him.	
. DISRUPTION  OF  FRIENDSHIP.
How an Intimacy of Years _v»* Drought
to an End.
Two women up-town, who huve been
dear friends for years, ure at daggers'
points, says tlio New York Evening Sun,
und tho friends of both tiro ranged on
ono sido or tho other of tho controversy.
Tho cause of it all is a cook. Mrs. A.
had a oook of superior skill. Ono day
she appeared beforo her mistress and
quietly announced that sho Bhould go
into Mrs. 11.'s service the next month
because Mrs. B. had olfercd her larger
wages. Mrs. A. was thundorstruck.
Her dearest friend come into her homo
and steal away her chief dopondonco in
this way? Impossible! Sho put on her
wraps and drove to Mrs. B.'s houje. It
was only too truo. Her own familiar
friend in whom she had trusted had
lifted up her heel against her and hired
her cook out of baud. Moreover, whon
charged with bur treachery sho coolly
insisted that she had every right in tho
world to hire another woman's cook
away from her if Bhe could, no matter If
that woman was her best friend.
Mrs. A. fairly gasped at tho heresy.
Women had occasionally been known to
do this dark and dishonorable uecd, but
there had never been ono found so burdened In iniquity as to defend it.   Perhaps Mrs. B. would bo capable of a like
I defense if she had estranged the affect-
| ions of Mrs. A.'s husband or children
from her.   Mrs. B. had the graco given
' hor to rejoin that thero was no parallel
L In tho cases.   This was an affair purely
| of business.     Tlie cuok'si services wciu
I wortli so mucli a i.ionth to Mrs, A.   If
[ they were worth more to another woman
that woman hud it perfect right to make
1 tho fact known to the cook and tlio cook
[ to prolltby it.   Tliiu was the business
I method, aud no man accused another of
L dishonorable methods because he had
lofferod his most co-epetent assistant
Ibetter pay for his services.   Mrs. A, re-
I fused to look at the matter in that light
land they parted—Mrs. A. in team, Mrs.
lit. In the cool consciousness of business
[sagacity and of unsullied rectitude.
Tho matter was speedily brought into
Jan open parliament of their common
Iwomcn friends, thero to ho tho subject
Tf an intellectual game of battledore
Lnd shuttle-cock that is still at its
(briskest.	
POWERFUL  MEMORIES.
[prodigies Whole Existence Is Too Well
1 Authenticated to lie Doubted.
There was a C'orsican boy who oould
■ehearso forty thousand words, whether
tense or nonsense, as tbey were dictated and then repeat them In the re-
Ivt.r_.od order without making a single
■mistake.   A    physician,   about sixty
lyoars ago, oould repeat the whole of
■Paradise  Lout without a mistake, al-
Itbough he had not read lt for twenty
■years.   Euler, tho great mathematician,
■when he became blind oould repeat the
|wbolo of Virgil's ..I'.neid, and could ro-
neniber the first line and the last line
i evory page of tho particular edition
which he had been accustomed to read
leforo ho became blind.   One kind of
retentive memory may be considered as
■he result of sheer work, a determination toward ono particular achievement
Ivithout reference either to cultivation
nr to memory on other subjects.
1 This is frequently shown by persons
t humble life in regard to the Bible.
|in old beggar mon at Stirling, known
tout fifty years ago as "Blind Allck,"
iffordcd an Instance of this.   He knew
ho whole of the Bible by hoart, Inso-
iuch that, If a sentence was road to
■m, he could name the book, chapter
fid verso; or, if the book, chapter and
fcrso wero named, he could give the ex-
It words.   A gentleman, to test him,
touted a verse, purposely making one
fcbal  Inaccuraoy.    Allck    hesitated,
mod the placo where tbo passage was
P be found,  but at the same time
Bnted out the verbal error.   Tbe same
pieman  asked him to repeat tbe
betteth verso of tho seventh chapter
I tho Book of Numbers.   Aliok almost
ptantly replied; "There is no suoh
The chapter haB only eighty-
no verses."   Gassendl had acquired by
part six thousand Latin verses; and, in
der to give his memory exercise, he
fas In the habit daily ot reciting six
rundrod   verses from   different Ian-
ig es. —Toronto Globe.

The ConatancB Arrives.
The new str. Constance, built at Vh>
toria for Mr. Alex. Ewen, arrived safely
In port yesterday afternoon in charge of
Capt. Frank Odin. No sooner hnd the
trim -looking little craft arrived than
hundreds of citizens flocked down to the
landing place to inspect hor, and the
general expression was very favorable
indeed, The Constance Is a fast craft,
vory steady in rough water, and as neat
a little vessel aa there is on tho river,
She will be put Into commission immediately in connection with Mr, Ewen's
fishing and salmon packing operations,
and It may be takne for granted that she
will give all the satisfaction expected.
The sun shone bright and warm today and every child in the city felt that
there was nothing to hinder the merrymakings that have always gladdened the
glorious first of May. There was only
one drawback and that was the dust,
which floated in clouds whenever the
feet of the horses or the waggon wheels
disturbed it. Before the hour appointed for the parade at Hyack hall, one
o'clock, little groups gathered around
there and discussed probabilities. Then
the firemen In their fine uniforms began
to arrive, then carriages and buggies
with tittle folks dressed all in white and
adorned with flowers almost as pretty as
themselves, then the band, and a moment later the Queen, ex-Queen nnd
maids of honor arrived, and things began to look like business. Then a man
was seen coming along Columbia street
tottering under the weight of a large
square box with three long thin legs.
When he put the box down and straightened uu everybody knew it was Mr.
Davis tho photographer, and everybody
smiled a smile of welcome at Mr. Davis
the photographer, and he smiled, too,
and looked real pleased. Then another
gentleman with another box also
ornamented with three long thin legs,
camo up and he and Mr. Davis got out
in front of the large group of May-day
merry-makers ana told tlipm to    keep
The Junior lacrosse Hatch.
The lacrosse mateh between the Westminster and Vancouver juniors took
place on the old cricket field this afternoon and proved a very interesting
event. There waa a large number of
spectators present notwithstanding the
greater attractions held out by the May
day merry-makers. Following were the
teions: Vancouver-Linklater, Morency,
Scurry, Boultbee, Scott, Campbell,
Qcann, McPhee, Browne, Dinsmore, E.
Miller, Spare man, Myers. Westminster—J. H. Vidal, Culbert. P. Peele, G.

Wjbstor, B. Peele, Taylor, W. Clute, F.

Mr. Ryal was chosen referee and
Mi iflsrs, Quigley and Cambridge umpires.
When the men lined up the general impression was that Vancouver having the
heaviest material would make an easy

were takon. Then tho band took tho
head of the procession and played some
of Wagner's beautiful music; the royal
carriage came next with ita load of
merry little distinguished people, then
the carriage containing the chief of tho
Hyacks and other officers of state, then
the Hyacks, two and two, looking so
handsome and smart in thoir holiday
array. Following them camo miscellaneous vehicles, and the sidewalks
were crowded with those who preferred
to walk up to the Park with the procession. On reaching the Park the May
Queen, Miss McPhaden, surrounded by
her faithful guard, the noble Hyacks,
received her crown from the ex-Queen,
little Miss Hatherly, and made
the following speech to her
predecessor and   subjects   assembled:
Dear Sibtkii: The happy occasion
which brings us together to-day ia
fraught with all the joy and pleasure
that should accompany this most beautiful season of the year—the glad springtime—when after a long and chilly winter the tender grasses once more spring
forth, the blossoms expand into life, and
the little birds whose carols have been
hushed all winter, sing clear again their
sweetest warblings, filling the air with
that light music which we all delight to
hear.
The crown, dear sister, which you
have resigned, and which has been bestowed upon me, your successor, ia the
emblem of authority, and to which you
all must bear true and faithful allegiance. But our reign is peace, we
govern by love; and our wish is to so
rule our subjects that nothing but pleasure will fill our hearts and rule our fancies on such an occasion as this.
I command you, therefore, to come
with me to the beauteous May Pole,
round which you will dance as true subjects of the May Queen, and under the
watchful care of my faithful guards, the
gallant Hyacks, may we while away the
happy day in the innocent and pleasing
amusements it is my wish you should
join in.
This address waB received with loud
shouts of applause from the assembled
multitude, followed by three hearty
cheerB from the Hyacks.
The maypole was then climbed by
one of royal guardsmen and the gay nnd
many colored ribbons were released from
their festoons, an end of ribbon waB
handed to each of the pretty royaterers
below, and round the maypole they
circled looking too pretty for anything.
The whirligig at the top of the pole did
not work very well, but who cared?
everybody laughed; tho sun waB warm
and pleasant, the air was filled with the
perfume of flowers and a smile lighted
every countenance. After the maypole
dance the polo was stripped of its ribbons each child receiving one; then
came the call of "a ring, a ring." Her
ctilcan Constable Smith, grand in i
gorgeous white helmet, was there, and
he soon made lightsome room for the
royal set of quadrilles. The little fairies
were led out "to trip the light fantastic
toe" each by a burly member of the Royal
Guard. First came the blushing Queen
of the May, lovely as a rose in June,
Miss May MacPhaden, escorted by the
gallant commander of her majesty's
loyal guard, Chief Ackerman. Next tlie
ex-queen, sweet and charming Miss
Maud Hatherly, was brought forward
by Mr. W. Dickinson; Miss Mabel Harvey had for a partner Mr. Thomas
Ovens, Miss Mabel Ewen was escorted
by Mr. Scoullar, Miss Gerty Trodden by
Mr. Fitzgerald and Miss Audio Ewen by
Mr. Geo. Hume. Then the band struck
up a joyful dancing air and the graceful
and happy votaries of the Terpslchorean
art danced a right merry measure to the
great glee of the onlookers and their
own pleasure. After the dance the little
folks and their guardians went over to
the enclosed part of the park, and ou
entering the gate the queen's most
gracious bounty was dealt out
to all alike; confections, fruit and
cakes were dispensed with a liberal
hand. The merry-go-round did an immense business. Everybody patronised
it and everyone waa delighted with the
amusement it afforded. The games and
tha fun wero kept up until late iu the
afternoon, and will be renewed in the
evening at the opera house, when the
young people will dance until 10 o'clock
and their elders as long after that as
they feel like it. Considerably overtwo
thousand people were at tho park this
afternoon. The grand stand during the
ceremonies was filled almost to overflowing, while hundreds stood ou the
grounds. It is conceded on all hands
that thia haa boon the most successful
May Dny festival ever held in Westminster.      '   _________
New Wesmlnster's Water Works.
Complete specifications for the construction of the water works have been
prepared and printed, and by advertisements elsewhere it will be seen that
tenders nre invited for the clearing of

Sharp play followed the face and then
tbe rubber travelled down to the Vancouver flags and remained there three
and a half minutes; then it was thrown
up field where Quann got it, and, threw
on goal; to the amazement of the crowd
the rubber passed, making first game
for Vancouver.   Time 4 min.
HgCOND game.
After a rest of ten minutes play was
resumed, aud the lads went at the game
in good style. Westminster made the
best showing all round, but somo individual players on tho Vancouver side
did fine work. Porcy Peele had been
changed to goal, greatly strengthening
the defence thereby. After somo general piny in the centre field the ball was
fraduolly worked down to the visitors'
ags, and, work as they would, it kept
closo there for sevoral minutes. Finally
the rubber shot down to center fiold
where it was captured by B. Peele, who,
after running clear of several opponents,
fired on goal. Tho shot wns the finest
play of the day, tho ball travelling with
the rapidity of thought fully 50 yards
and scoring game for Westminster,
Time, five minutes.
THIRD OAME.
The score was now oven and both
sides took the field determined to win
the victory. But the "Westminster juniors played the stronger game and the
ball was kept pretty much In the vicinity of the Vancouver flags, Turner,
Greig and Clute aimed many a shot at
goal, but the magnificent defence
of the visitors repelled tho attacks as often as they were
made. Once in a while the rubber
would travel uji field, .tnd a few shots
were made at the home flags, all admirably Btopped, however, by Percy
Peele, who generally managed to relieve
the pressure by capturing the ball and
throwing well down field. At the end
of 25 minutes play Cuthbert got the
rubber, carried it well down field and
threw to Webster, who made a quick
shot on goal and scored the second win
for the Royal City.    Time, 25 minutes.
The fourth game was won by Vancouver, and the fifth and sixth by Westminster. This ended the match in favor

Mrs. Hcott-Slddons.
Mrs. Scott-Siddons waB greeted by a
large and highly appreciative audience
in Victoria Hall last evening. They
wore charmed with her appearance, her
richness of attire, and her rendering of
the eight selections which constituted
the programme. The dramatic recital
lasted for nbout two hoars, and the interest seemed to bo increasing up to the
close. Tho lady's interpretation of the
sentiments expressed' was admirable,
and her personification of the various
characters was true to succession; she
wub French, Italian and Yankee by
turns, not only indialcct, Imt in gesture,
thought and feeling. In tho sleep-walking scene the stillness was almost
breathless throughout the hall. The
recitals of the mild caricature style,
from Dickens nnd Mark Twain, were
particularly effective. Everybody enjoyed the entertainment immensely.—

Weitmlniter Real Estate.
Westminster is still the favorite so far
ns speculation is concerned; and why
Bhould it not be, for who has lost money
on an investment In Westminster
realty? In the paBt it has been impossible for the speculator to make an unprofitable deal. He has simply paid the
then market value and in three months
his investment was worth a third more.
And the same is the case to-day. Heal
estate has got to go far beyond present
prices before the limit ia reached, and
the investor of to-day haa almost aa good
chances aB he had a year ago. By reference to our advertising columns it
will be seen that Mr. T. J. Trapp will
hold another of hia popular action sales
of real estate at the mart on Saturday
night. A large number of properties
have been listed, and all will be sold to
the highest bidder at the fall of the
hammer. The sale will attract much
attention. .

TO THE ELECTORS
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN :-Iu view of tlie near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused by the dcatli of our lute
representative {the much-respected D,
ChishohtO and as I havo stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before you
some of my views on the leading questions which 1 consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.
I have beeu asked what I mean when
I announce myself as a Liberal-Conservative: I reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residence of over 30 years in this Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins lias hud 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 Hues are not defined in
British Columbia as they aro in tbe older
provinces, 1 consider that our representatives are not in duty bound to give a
through-thick-and-thiu support to any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generouB support to all
good measures which may be brought
before them, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, aud
should a measure come before 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
the Turin, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of every-day
use to our Fanners and others, and
which we cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
Hue, 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 and other articles are brought from the States, although the duties are so 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
tbat heads of families in this Province
pay more than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
We have had example to the point during the last three months. If we had
not received a good supply from California there would have been a meat
famine; as it is we are now and have
been paying 25 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, und the same state of
uffairs is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for iu spite of
"Protection" for the last eleven years
our stock raisers are little better prepared to meet bard winters than they
were before, and to my mind tho only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
N. P. are the 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 both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go down bo deep into his
pockets to huy what he needs to eat and
wear. 1 am aware the Government must
have a revenue to carry ou the affaire of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay mora and got at the pockets of the
richer classes who can bettor afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of the late Mr. Chisholm, be was unable
to he in his place this session, and very
little during the previous one, so wo of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wantB have
not been brought before the notice of
the House. Had ho (Mr. Chisholm)
beeu iu his seat, I do not think tho Postmaster-General would have been left so
much in the dark concerning the neces-
ity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Fraser as be soems to havo been
when he proposed to cut off the mail
subsidy from that important route, and
there are other places in the District
which need better postal facilities, which
1 consider Bhould receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
1 hope that in the near future our
District will reach that point that wo
may look for it to bo divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over I GOO
miles of territory, and when tho census
returns are in I think the necessary
number of population will he found to
demand such additional representation,
The protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumns, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also the works for improving
the channel at the SaudlieadB, iu view
of tho expected increuse iu our shipping
interests.
I consider the Province should have
control over all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District in particular, 1 feel should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delia lands from the mouth
of the Serpentine to Fraser Biver, also
•to enquire into the question of cutting
one from Ihe Frnser Ilivor to Port
Moody, which line often been suggested
to mc,
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, nnd encouraged judiciously.
Just nt present it is coming hero fast
enough; I would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, as many 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 address too long. I hope to see as
many us possible beforo the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them aud answer nny
questions. As soon us possible after tbe
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 residence in the Province I huve travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I loci fully competent to bring
such mutters before the notice of the
House iu a practical, business-like manner.
Should I have tho honor to be elected
I assure you I shall watch over the interests ol this District faithfully and to
the best of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go aB*a true British Columbian and to do my duty us such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.
