Baron Hiracli Makes Another Very

Strike Settled.
Nbw York, April 14.—What threatened to be a long and bitter contest between capital and labor in the strike in
trades generally has been averted. Today all the men went to work at the
usual hours. The difference between
the central labor union and the Hecla
Iron works was adjusted yesterday, and
a pronunciainto sent that the men catted
out Friday and Saturday should return
to work. The non-union mon have been
discharged. 	
DestruetHe Fire.
Omaha, Neb,, April 14.—A fire this
morning destroyed the clothing store of
Browning King A Co., and damaged the
stock of N. B. Falconer, dry goods, and
Mrs. J. Benson. J_osn. $115,000.

Boston, Mass., April 14.—The Organizers reported to a meeting of carpenters
at a district council last night, that
every trade organization in the state
promises to financially support the carpenters in the 8 and 9 hours demand.
The McdiHa Case.
New York, April 14.—A despatch from
the/i>raWto Washington says; Judge
Advocate-General Remey, of the navy,
and his assistants, are still engaged with
the McGulla case. They completed a
review of the papers some days ago, and
are now enjoyed upon the preparation of
the charges and specifications in accordance with the findings of the court of
inquiry, An order for a trial by court
martial of Commander McCufla and
Lieut. Ingersoll will be issued simultaneously with the publication of the report
of the court of inquiry. It is said there
will.be from ten to fifteen specifications
accompanying the charges against Mc-
Culla. The escapades of McCulla and
several of his subordinates in the Bermudas, will, it is intimated, figure iu
this specification. It is said the Department nas taken steps to obtain official
knowledge of the alleged spree in the
Bermudas.	
Itlotoiii Laborers.
Wheeling, W. Va., April 14.—Foreman Ross, of Millet's labor camp on the
line of the Norfolk A Western Railway
extension in Wayne County, A. S. Meyer,
of Louisville, Ky., clerk of the camp and
5 white men, citizens of the vicinity,
were terribly beaten by negro railroad
laborers on Friday. Meyer has since
d{ed and two of the others nre in a precarious condition. The trouble arose
from an order of the contractor which
the negroes resented. They cut up the
tents, destroyed the carts and were helping themselves to the stores when Ross
aud Myer interfered, calling to their aid
9 or 10 citizens. The negroes put them
to flight, beating 7 of them in a terrible
manner. The fugitives gave the alarm
and about 26 citizens arrived witli rifles,
charged the negroes and captured 7 of
them. The others were chased acrosB
Twelve Pole Creek and into the woods.
A Monster  Failure.
New York, April 14.—The Herald
says: The schedules of J. P. Murphy,
assignee of John F. Pluuimer A Co., are
to be filed this week, aud will show
that the nominal assets of the firm are
about $1,200,000 and actual assets $200-,
000. The liabilities amount to more
than $800,000, Assignee Murphy's investigation have tended to show that
the firm's embarrassments were directly
due to the peculiar operations of W. H.
Darling, financial manager for J. F.
Flummer A Co. It is known Darling
used the First National Bank of Plain-
field and First National Bank of New
York, drawing on them his personal
checks for an amount between $400,000
and $500,000. The actual assets of the
defunct firm consist of stock and claims
for goods sold and delivered, as well as
individual property of Mr. Plummer.
The Union Pacific.
Chicago, April 14.—Jesse Spalding,
one of the government directors of the
Union Pacific, has made a report to
Secretary Noble, in which lie says that
the road iB far more valuable as a property than it was 5 years ago, and the
growth of the whole West is due in a
Seat measure to it and its branches,
ocontinues: "Itcan't pay the government $52,000,000 which it owes at
this time, but it is able to offer security
equal to $34,000,000 more than the government now holds for its indebtedness.
It asks for au extension of time and a
lower rate of interest, both of which the
government can afford to grant rather
than to see the property imperilled, for
to imperil it would threaten the financial ruin of thousands of people who
have invested money in the enterprise;
and more than this it would mean the
probable impoverishment of hundreds
of those who havo settled upon its lines
during recent years, and whose interests
are so closely woven with the prosperity
of the road that they can't be separated.
Starving the Pastor.
New York, April 14.—A special to the
Herald from Lock|K>rt, N.Y., says: Rev.
J. W. Sanborn, in his pulpit on Easter
Sunday, announced he had but 0 cents
in his pocket.a'nd his family had had
only a three-cent meal for tlie past six
weeks to subsist on. He claimed that
the church was trying to starve him
out, and that he could not stand it longer. Mr. Sanborn is a celebrated Indian
scholar, and pastor of the First Methodist church of thiB city. He has a world-
famed reputation, having lectured before the British Historical Society at
London, and the Cooper institute of
New York last fall. Tne wealthy portion of the congregation were provoked
because Sanborn would not discontinue
a series of revival meetings and join a
sensational evangelist named Yatmau.
who has been aired in the* papers and
who drove one poor girl crazy in this
elty. His enemies tried to have the
bishop remove him, but the pastor's
friends rallied to hiB support and compelled to reappoint him. Then began
the starving-out process. The pastors
of other denominations and wealthy
members of other churches have aided
him out of his financial strait. The
affair calls out severe criticism upon the
church.     .
Ex-Speaker Randall Dead.
Washington, April 14.—Immediately
after the reading of the journal in the
House this morning Mr. O'Neil, of Pennsylvania, announced the death'of ex-
Speaker Randall. A committee was appointed to attend the funeral.
It has been decided to bury Mr. Randall In Philadelphia on Thursday next.
At the request of Mrs. Randall tlie funeral will not be nn Imposing one. The
remains will be taken to tho Metropolitan church hero on, Thursday morning
where services will be conducted by
Rev. Dr. Chester. The cortege will
then proceed to the depot and take a
special train on the Pennsylvania railroad for Philadelphia. On motion of
Cameron, of Pennsylvania, the Senate
to-day adjourned out of respect to the
memory of Samuel J. Randall.
Samoan News.
San Francisco, April 13.—A letter received to-day from a correspondent at
Samoa, dated March 23rd, says, " Since
•I last wrote, quite a stir has been caused
in political circles here by machinations
of the Roman Catholic clergy, assisted
by a few agitators. Their idea is to get
the SamoatiB dissatisfied with Malietto
and thereby bring about an election for
King, when they hope to get Mattafa
elected. Of course Mattafa lias no desire to occupy the regal position, but he
is a good Catholic, and, therefore, bound
to do what his spiritual advisers here
command. Some timo ago, when temporarily occupying the kingship, at a
large meeting of'chiefs, he ordered that
there should be only one church for
Samoa, and that to be Roman Catholic.
This was remarkably cool considering
that the total number of) adherents
claimed by the Roman Catholics is 4,000,
whilst the Loudon Missionary Society
claims 22,000. However, Mattafa was
immediately silenced and wns warned
not to attempt any interference with the
religion of the people.
By the steamer Wananu, which
reached here on the 27th Marcli, from
Auckland, Vice-Counsel Blacklock received the following cablegram, which
has been cabled to Auckland to be
transmitted by the first chance: "The
treaty is ratified. Tho exchange will
be effected soon In preparations' to its enforcement. You may join simultaneously
with the German and British consuls in
orders restricting the sale of firearms
and the liquor traffic; in defining the
municipal election districts and iu concerting with the Samoan Government to
fix the date for the beginning of the collection of taxes and customs and - provisionally appointing collectors. (Signed) Blaine/ Vice-Consul Blacklock
has taken the preliminary steps advised
by the treaty. He has caused all the
American merchants and saloon-keepers
to make sworn statements regarding the
description and quantity of liquor on
their premises, and he is also enforcing
the law against selling rifles and ammunition to the natives."

Huron Hlrsoh's Charity.
New York, April 14.—Once more the
name of Baron HirSch is coupled with a
magnificent charitable scheme. About
a year ago he offered prominent American Hebrews a plan for aiding the Hebrews in this country. He has just sent
to the committee his first instalment of
the sum promised, $120,000 annually,
for distribution immediately. The deed
of trust states the specific objects for
which the money shall be used. Education and relief of Hebrew immigrants
from Europe, chiefly from Russia; a
provision for the transportation of immigrants selected after their arrival at
American ports; provision for training
immigrants in trades and contributing
to their support while learning such
trades; provision for improving mechanical training of adults and youths;
provision fnr instruction of immigrants
in English language, and in technical
trade and agricultural schools; co-operation with established agencies in various sections of the United States whose
duty in the whole or in part is to furnish aid and relief ana education to
needy und deserving applicants of the
Jewish faith.
A Oloite Call.
San Jose, Cal., April 14.—As the
Monterey express left the station here
for San Fraucisch, at 8:30 this morning,
an open switch ut the bridge, a short
distance from the depot, was discovered
by the engineer, but too late to avoid an
accident. The engine and three cars
left the track and crashed on to the
bridge, jumping to the side where there
was another track. Had the cars left
the track ou the opposite side the train
would have been thrown into the creek.
The three coaches tipped nearly over.
Tlie train was crowded with passengers
but no one was injured. The engine,
coaches and bridge were badly damaged.
A Successful Lathers* Strike.
San Fbancisco, April 14.—The lathers
struck for more pay this morning. Those
who work by the day asked an advance
from $2.50 and $3.05 to $3.05 and $4,
white the piece men demanded an advance from $1.50 per thousand to $1.75
per thousand. As the services of the
lathers nre greatly in demand, building
throughout the city being very active,
tlie men were granted what they wanted.
All Serene at Oakland.
Oakland, Cal., April 14.—The town is
as placid as a mill pond to-day, no earthquake, no tidal wave and no excitement.
There is considerable indignation in
Oakland at the extent to which the
bogus sensaison has been worked up by
the newspapers and Oakland made to
bear the brunt of it. A Stockton despatch says that Erickson, who is in an
insane asylum there, claims that the
prophesy held good until midnight.
The Quarrel Healed,
Berlin, April 14.—The Emperor has

and the bitterness which marred their
relations during the hist four years has
disappeared. Not a day is allowed to

Liverpool, April 14.—In consequence
of the refusal of the dock companies to
accept the terms of the dock laborers
union in regard to hours of labor, five
hundred men struck to-duy.
Speculating on Futures.
London, April 12.—The London and
Liverpool tea brokers aro leaving as
much tea as possible in bond in view of
the expected reduction in duty, and, on
tlie other hand, the same thing is being
done by the importers of coffee, raisins,
currants, etc., in consequence of their
expectations that the duties on these
articles will be either wholly or partly
remitted. From what can be gathered
in official quarters, however, there is
small likelihood of any of these duties
being altered, and it can be stated that
the only duty with which Mr. Goschen'B
Budget will deal, will be that on gold
and silver plate, which is very troublesome to every Chancellor ot the Exchequer and against which there is a
continual outcry. Tlio reason for not
touching the tea duty is, that it is
thought not to be opportune to reduce
tea only and leave the coffee duty alone,
The latter, together with the taxes on
raisins, etc., is already at a very low
figure, and none but a bold Chancellor
of the Exchequer with a large surplus
ever thinks of wholly repealing a small
and comparatively harmless tax. So
long as the tax remains it can always be
raised or lowered as the exigency of the
dny may require, but once it is repealed
and the machinery for its -collection
swept away, now revenue. m.UBt bo

London, April 14.—The preliminary
rumors of the discovery of a Nihilist plot
are coming in from St. Petersburg, and
from what is already known they seem
more important than the others. There
has been now three within a month and
tho peculiar circumstances of each suggests that they, have been purposely
put in the way of police discovery in
order to divert attention from a central
conspiracy. Gruesome reports continue
to spread of the connection of high officials und youths of noble families with
this present Nihilist activity; For the
moment there is a lull in the turbulent

intensifies the apprehensions of a catastrophe.

they will hold a meeting next Sunday

riot is feared, but the Government is
acting with intelligence and patience.
It is said that the Poverimi, the Neapolitan Combination against Signor Cris-
pi'a Government, will try to overthrow
it at the approaching general electiona,
and is secretly fanning the flame of discontent so-that disorders may follow.    ■
"New Tipperary."
Tipperary; April 12.—Owing to the
non-arrival of some of the speakers, the
ceremonies connected with the opening
of the town of "New Tipperary" were
delayed until the afternoon. There was
a very large attendance and the enthusiasm was great. The music and the
display of flags were the conspicuous
features of tho occasion. A number* of
the Irish leaders delivered speeches and
the portraits of all the principal Nationalists were prominently displayed. Canon
Cahill called the meeting to order. Mr.
Pictou and Lady Sandhurst thanked the
peoplo of the new town for the courtesy
extended to them as guests and for the
spirit exemplified by the meeting. Mr.
Davitt said that the first care of tho
evicted people who had formed the town
would be for the relief of their poorer
brethren. That action would redound
to the praise of the Irish people. Mr.
O'Brien delivered an oration in which
he said that lie was glad to be back iu
the thick of the fight. He paid thehigh-
est compliment to the people of Tipperary for their patience aud their courage
in the risks they had assumed- in the
devotion to their native soil.
At the banquet this evening, which
was attended by 000 guests, Canon
Cahill presided. Letters of regret were
received from a number of English Liberal members of Parliament. Mr. O'Brien
on rising to speak was warmly cheered.
He expressed his thanks from the depth
of his heart for the reception. He denounced the course of Secretary Balfour
towards Ireland. Mr. Davitt, Mr. T. D.
Sullivan and others also Bpoke. The
banquet was held in the new William
O'Brien arcade, which was finely decorated. Portraits of Gladstone, Emmett,
Parnell and other noted friends „of Ireland adorned the walls. Several English visitors participated in the ceremonies, including some members of
Parliament and ladies of distinction.
Mr. Davitt in his speech laid stress upon
this fact as an encouraging circumstances.    __________________

Thursday evening at the Victoria were
entirely of a popular, and not of a classical nature. Such post-prandial fruit
as "Yankee Doodle," "Rule Britannia,"
"Robin Adair," and so forth, were the
things with which he catered to the
tastes of his audience. The singing was
very good aud the piano solos brilliant;

not educated up to Chopin's eccentricities and rather yawned during the unraveling of the beauties of that peculiar
genius.
SAXON  TO THE CORE.
Mr. Seaton-Carr, who passed through
Victoria the other day on his way north,
is very English. He is large and blonde
and wears a huge moustache and garments uf tweed, sou i-tartan, se'mi-check
pattern. He is fond of the open air,
vigorous exercise and sport that has a

to .completely substantiate the charge
that he is an out-and-out Englishman,
he is also the head of the wealthy English syndicate that lately bought out all

"THE GREATEST OF   THESfc THREE.",.
Assembly Hall was dazzling in the
gaiety of its decorations on Wednesday
evening, and the hum of animated conversation mingling with the soft strains
of the string-band made appropriate
music to the scene. Victoria's ''best"
.icuple had turned out to tread a measure
or sweet charity's sake; and the delights
of the mazy waltz, to Strauss and Wald-
tenfels' delicious strains, were incalculably enhanced by the thought that not
the gratification of the tastes alone, but
the ends of kindness and humanity were
being served. The diversity and beauty
of the costumes were admirable. A
collation of particular excellence, purveyed by Messrs. Young Brothers, was
discussed with notable animation by all
present. This refection was served in
the large room at the back of the' hall.
It is believed that the proceeds of the
ball were of a very substantial and gratifying description.
OPERA BY AMATEURS.
Westminster's Society young ladies
and gentlemen would do well to emulate
the commendable enterprise of their
friends in Victoria, in the matter of
amateur opera and theatricals. The
Victoria Dramatic Club are practising
Jakobowski's pretty opera of "Errainie,
which they intend to present at the
theatre at an early date. One of the
local newspapers, no doubt laboring
under a slight misapprehension, stated a
day or two ago, that all the love passages
had been cut out of the work, because
Prof. Pferdner, the leader, had said that
amateurs always murdered love-sceneB,
and that the opera had beeu so clipped
cut and carved, that its father (Jaxo-
bowski) would not know it. The writer
has been assured by one of the gentlemen who will bear a leading role in the
piece, that the ease is not so bad as represented, and he contends that amateurs do not do badly at all in interpreting the tender passion. Westminster is
singularly favored iu the possession of a
great deal of amateur dramatic and

WILD    WEATHER.
Victoria, April 12.—Few -things have
been worthy of more attention in this
city during the past week than the
weather.   It has ranged all the way
from grave to gay; from lovely to
severe." The early days oi the week
were marked by high winds and a decided tendency to dampness. About the
middle of the week the weather prophets
pointed to the storm circle round the
moon and shook their heads ominously.
And their worst suspicions have been
amply verified by the occurrence of
something happily unprecedented in the
annals of southern British Columbia,
namely a snow storm in the middle of
April, On Thursday overy garden in
Victoria was full of floral sweetness;
tho crocus, snow-drop, lily, hyacinth,
primrose nnd all tho lovely flower-forms
of genial spring; the air was fragrant
witli their perfume, and the eye could
not tire feasting upon the infinite variety
of form aud color which they presented.
But that which has been rashly called
"tlie beautiful" came down on Friday in
furious, cutting clouds and accompanied
by a chill, biting wind. The hail followed, and with its rough batteries beat
down tho lovely emblems of returning
summer, and crushed them iu tho dust.
It was pitiful to see the miniature snowdrops lying all around the drooping
plants; anil leaves, petals stamonsand
buds strewed around, withering.
A     GERMAN    MILLIONAIRE.
Among the many peoplo who passed
through Victoria during tho past week,
S.rhaps none was so remarkable us Herr
ernhurdt of Berlin, Germany, banker,
speculator, mine-owner and millionaire
some score of times over, on his way to
inspect one of his great investments,
the celebrated Bears' Nest Mine iu
Alaska. Reports of a character calling
for immediate attention have been sot
afloat lately regarding this mine, and,
although those reports were of a nature
calculated to arouse uneasiness in the
minds of thoso interested in the mine,
it Ib learned on unofficial, but nevertheless good, authority that these alarming
rumors nre, in • considerable measure,
devoid of truth. Herr Bernhardt, at all
events, appeared to he vory little disturbed, but he intends to subject the
mine to n severe examination. He ia
accompanied by a well-known expert in
mineralogy. ' Tho remarks published in
the Alta'California latolv regarding this
inino wore the outcome ot more jealously,
asCaliforuinnsare so conceited about
the auriferous deposits of their own
state, that they look with a jealous and
eiivying*eye on gold discoveries anywhere
else'.
CORNET   A*  LEW.
When n virtuoso like the world-renowned Jules Levy elects to visit the
provinces, the occasion of his appearance is worthy of remark. M. lAjvy is
not the player he was six years "go,
when your correspondent had tho pleasure of hearing him in Now York city.
Time has begun to interfere with his
fingers and lips, and tongue; but, although  the  result of a   competition
operatic talent, and it is really a pity
that this delightful manner of employing the long winter evenings should be
suffered to drop into desuetude. Besides, when ono remembers that many
a young man has acquired the precious
accomplishment of speaking with ease
and grace, and of addressing any meeting or assemblage with the. confidence
and polish of a man who has had the
advantage of practice, through taking
part in amateur dramatic rehearsals and
entertainments, a very strong argument
is advanced in favor of this amusement:
If any one is not convinced of the truth
of this assertion let him-drop into the
meetings of our public bodies, from the
provincial parliament downwards, and
undergo for an hour the slow agonies of
listening to the speeches of gentlemen
who have not enjoyed the advantages of
either an amateur dramatic club or the
good offices of a professional elocutionist.
FISH OF ONE AND FLESH OF ANOTHER.
If there ia anything your correspondent likes it is the contemplation of a
nice littlo piece of gross injustice. Especially when that injustice .is perpetrated by a Btrong corporation and. the
victim is plural and distributed up and
down among the ratepayers. It is then
that tbe budding journalist grates hiB
teeth and mutters, "If I were running
our paper, wouldn't I open out on those
fellows and roast them to a crisp?" Not
to run into prolixity, thiB is the case of
a man who occupies a - wooden building
near the centre of the. city; he has
caused a number of changes to be made
to thiB building, which are strictly proscribed by the municipal by-laws relating to fire protection. Not only has he
exceeded the law iu making those
changes, but he has exceeded it very'
Sreatly. Several citizens who have
one about a fifth part to their buildings in comparison to what this citizen
has, have been heavily fined and reprimanded. This citizeu has not beeu
fined, nor has he been reprimanded. He
enjoys perfect immunity from either.
People who do not understand the
meaning of a wink with the left eye,
asks, why? Those who do, don't ask,
why? The matter wub taken but for a
little airing at the council at the last
meeting nnd the result was delightfully
dubious.
A MUNICIPAL MUMMY,
Egypt docs not contain all the mummies hy a long odds. A rich and rare
specimen of mummified mummery from
tlie dim nud storied past wasunwrapped
of its musty cerements the other day in
the provincial court in this city, The
antiquity of these remains goes back
into the shades of pro-historic night.
Tho hieroglyphics on the winding sheet
of this old fellow, when translated, informed the spectator., and auditors that
this wub a by-law empowering municipalities to exact a tax of $10 from eve'ry
opium smoker every six months. Officer Irvine brought a test case into court
on tho day aforesaid to see whether the
oldbv-law would bear handling. The
result has shown that it will not. It
could not be proved that it waa opium
the Chinaman was smoking.
PARLIAMENTARY    PARTICLES.
There have been no night sessions
since the resumption of business after
tlie Easter holidays. On account of the
rough woathcr this fact has not been
mourned with genuine Borrow.
The Hon. the Premier stated before
the adjournment of the House on Friday
that it was proposed to meet again ou
Saturday at the usual hour. On being
put to vote, however, the proposal met
with so littlo favor that it was abandoned. Two important committees had
meetings arranged for the morning of
that day.
The re-distribution bill will contain a
complete supriso for Westminsterites—
but whether that intelligence will elicit
a howl of indignation or a hurrah of appreciation, your correspondent must not
divulge. Everybody will know all ahou,t
it ou Monday evening.
The process of cleaning up the remaining bills on tlio list, is a wearisome task,
and not edifying to the gallery.
Tne majority of the members are
looking forward to next Friday with
pleasant anticipations of having their
arduous labors ended for another ses-

THE RIVER CROSSING.
The Fraser River is at once Westminster's greatest wealth and pride and
present cause of disquietude. While
tho noble stream drains, and makes
tributary to thiB City, one of the fairest
and richest valleys on the broad earth,
and bears on its ample bosom our commerce from the sea to the mountains,
its prolific waters teeming at the same
time with the lordly salmon and other
tinny wealth, it causes, as a matter of
necessity, a slight inconvenience of access between* this City aud the land of
promise on the southern shore. An
alleged, but very dubious, ferry has
served indifferently heretofore to meet
tlie wants of pilgrims and thefr waruB
bound to and fro; but the growing importance of the traffic, both to this City
nnd the large and thriving districts
south of the river concerned, clamors
louder than words for the immediate
provision of incomparably bettor means
of communication than the present subterfuge. By the latest turn in Southern
Railway affaire tho City has become the
sole nnd unconditional arbiter and
proprietor in all matters affecting the
providing of general traffic facilities,
and the question has naturally arisen,
and it has beeu considerably threshed
up to date, Shall it be a bridge or a
ferry? The former is, of course, the
grander scheme, and appeals at once to
the imagination and to the enthusiasm
of the inquirer. But tbe dull, cold facts
m to the cost, and the time required to
complete such a structure, havo to be
considered. With all the light (it must
be confessed it is not a great deal) that
has been thrown on the subject by correspondents, it would appear to be not
very far from the mark to assume that
the cheapest bridge that could be
constructed—a wooden one throughout
—would cost somewhere between $100,-
000 and $150,000. Such a bridgo would
hardly be satisfactory, it is' unnecessary
to say, even if it could be built for the
Bum named. From inquiries that
we have made on the subject and competent opinions gained, we are in a
position to state that a considerably
better and proportionately expensive
bridge would be required, details of
which we cannot enter into to-day. A
bridge, aB we have before said, will undoubtedly be built eventually, but a
ferry must be put on immediately, and
before a bridge, whatever its coat, could
possibly be built. While the Council
may very properly take steps to secure
data bearing on the bridge question,
looking to the construction of a bridge
eventually—at the earliest practicable
date—the ferry •business, seeing that a
ferry must be put on in any event,
should, we think, have its first attention.
been of a similar opinion. Mr. Matthews,
however, is Home Secretary, and his
Shylock will urged life for life, and the
young convict, in spite of the protests of
the press, the demands of the populace,
and the command of the Queen, was
sent to his account.
Mr, Matthews is a living example of
the unwisdom of thrusting untried politicians into Cabinet positions, before
they have had adequate knowledge of
the more subordinate training always in
the gift of a new ministry. It is an old
saying that if you place a beggar on
horseback he will ride to a very uncomfortable place, and the truth of the
adage has been well exemplified in the
Home Secretary, whose stock in trade iB
the perverted principles of a bankrupt
politician in search of place. His motto
might well be taken from Pope: *
" Uet wealth and power, If possible with grace,
" If not, by any means get wealth and place."
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
HENRY MATTHEWS.
After several attempts to get himself
into serious trouble, the English Home
Secretary appears at length to have
succeeded. It may be suid of him that
his very worst enemy has been the man
who insisted upon Lord Salisbury giv- j
ing him a ministerial position, and Lord
Randolph Churchill is neither to be
congratulated for his insistance thut
the present Home Secretary Bhould be
provided with a place, nor is the minister himself to be sympathised with for
his repeated blunders, which have at last
calumniated iu the hanging of a young
convict in direct antagonism with the
expressed wishes of the Queen. Had
Mr. Matthews never entered the political arena, he probably would have risen
to distinction at the bar; but his consistent and persistent blunders (which
politically, have been worse than crimes)
have by this time probably convinced
him that as a minister he is a failure,
The son of a Ceylon judgo, ho is a B.
A, of Paris and LL. B. of London Universities, as well as a Fellow of University College. When only eighteen years
of age he wus admitted to the bar and
at thirty-nix was a Q. C. He is a Bencher of Lincoln's Inn and has sat for an
Irish constituency in the Liberal Interests, in the British House of Commons.
In 1885 Mr. Matthews (having meanwhile dangled at Randolph Churchill's
skirls) contested North Birmingham in
the Conservative interests, and the fol
lowing year the coalition of the Liberal
Unionists with the Tory party helped
him to secure the membership for the
Eastern Division of the same constituency. Churchill's influence got him
the Home Secretaryship, and since he
has held that ofllce his mistakes have
been neither few nor trivial. In the
Cass case he persisted in supporting
police officer who had overstepped his
duties by arresting a poor girl on a most
serious charge. Not content with this,
he endeavored to stand his ground when
the whole press and people of the United Kingdom demanded that justice
should be done. It is unnecessary to
state that in the end Mr. Matthews had
to swallow the leek. Scarcely less disastrous to himself was his course in the
case of the Trafalgar Square riots,
whilst the recent West End scandals
gave him a further opportunity to shew
his lack of sympathy with the prevailing popular sentiment.
The reason of the storm now raging
about his ears is his utter disregard
both of public opinion and the wishes of
his sovereign. A young man named
Davies was found guilty of having murdered his father. .The act was proved,
but it was also shown at the trial that
the parent was a brute to the mother of
tho lad, and that for this reason alone
the son appeared to have killed Ids
father. The convict was a mere lad in
years, aud had hitherto borne an excellent reputation. The popular demand
was that the murderer should be imprisoned, and the Queen is stated to have

Washington's legislative halls. Such a
show would draw heavily from two
states, and several cities in the Queen's
dominions."
The Imperial Institute, that monument to the Queen's jubilee and the extent and resources of her Empire, appear to be progressing well. At the
last meeting of the organizing committee the Prince of Wales presided, and
Sir Charles Tuppor represented Canada.
The building is now erected as far as
[.the walls of the upper floors, and the
work is steadily pushed. The labors of
Sir Somers Vine, who visited Australia
and Canada last year, were accepted as
satisfactory, aud applications will bo
made to the various governments, our
own included, with reference to the formation of collections of the economic
and industrial products of the colonies.
An idea ia being carried out in Australia, says an exchange, which is
worthy of note and perhaps of imitation.
In New South Wales the Minister of
Public Instruction has offered a prize
for the best "history of Australia," to
be used as a text book in the public
schools. The first prize Ib £300 and the
second £150. Ten authors are competing, nine of them being residents of the
colony. In such a competition there
will be much to encourage native authorship, and what is not less important the
chances of getting a satisfactory history
of the country are vastly increased. We
need a good history of Canada for our
public schools, but whether a competition of this sort would produce the required article is food for thought.
One of the Jewish pastors of Montreal,
Rev. Mr.- De Sola, has been lecturing
upon a very interesting subject, that of
the Jewish dietary laws, which account
iu such great measure for the healthful-
ness of the race. The Mosaic law, he
pointed out, permitted for use aB food
only the flesh of such animals as divide
the hoof and chew the cud. In the killing of these animals the strictest examination had to be made to prevent
the communication of disease to man.
Mr. De Sola said that as far as his own
congregation was concerned lambs and
calves usually passed examination, but
50 per cent, of sheep and 50 per cent, of
cowb slaughtered in Montreal were rejected. Yet the rest of the population
eats this contentedly enough. As to
fish, the Jews only eat those with both
fins and scales, and oysters, in Mr. De
Sola's opinion, are simply "the scavengers of the sea." Lobsters, crab and
other Crustacea are likewise tabooed,
The result of the great care taken by
the Jews as to their diet is famous
everywhere in the extraordinarily low
death rate of this people and their immunity from epidemics which decimate
other sections of the population.

SURREY.
5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Municipality of Surrey, midway between the
Cities of New Westminster, B. C, and
Blaine, Wash., at from $30 to $40 per
acre.
This property is situated on the Hall's Prairie road, near the
junction of the Langley Road, the Yale Road, and tho Clover
Valley Road, within 500 yards of tho proposed station of the New
Westminster Southern Railway. The land is high and dry, and
the soil is first-class. Surrey is one of the most prosperous sections of the District of New Westminster, and is at present enjoying quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this property will got tho value of their money in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at the same time promises an excellent
field for speculation.

NORTH  ARM.
146 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 line fertile soil, chiefly prairie, and lies well. It
lias become a maxim that cities grow westward, and Now Westminster is proving no exception to the rule, City lots west of
Edinburgh Street, along the North Arm road, have doubled in
value in less than a year, while acre tracts have, in the same
time, in some instances more than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to the Westerly City Boundary is
completed, the North Arm will become the best suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently oxpectod by many that
the route of the Electric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
section. Our shrewdest speculators are 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 tho
North Arm is looked upon as one of the best places for investment in the District.    Prices arc bound to advance rapidly.

—A Coffeo Dessert—Make a coffee-

and when it reaches the boiling point
pour into a buttered mold and set away
to cool. It is very nice when served

—Serving Bananas.—A favorite way
of serving bananas in New Orleans is to
cut them lengthwise in two pieces,
dust them with powdered sugar, a
little lemon juice and bits of butter,
and to bake them in the oven for
twenty-five minutes. They should be
basted with the butter once or twice
while baking, and served hot in tbo
dish in which they are cooked.
—A Simple Pudding. — Roll three
crackers finely; one pint of hot milk,
the yelks of two eggs, a saltspoonful
salt, the same amount of nutmeg and
one teaspoonful of butter. Bake half
an hour in an earthen dish standing in
water. When dono boat the whites or
the eggs with two teospoonfuls of powdered sugar. Brown slowly in the oven,
then dot with bits of jelly and serve,
—The extent to which warm water
bags have come into uso is amazing.
They are now an almost ossential adjunct of evory lady's traveling outfit

filled with boiling water they retain

FIGHTING THE APACHES.
How an Arliona Rancher Won General
Orook't Friendship.
James Payne, of Arizona, can tell
more about the bloodthirsty Apache Indians in a minute than any other man.
He has been at Washington telling tbe
committee un Indian affairs that the
people of Arizona don't want the Indians removed to the Fort Sill Reservation in Indian Territory. Mr. Payne
says if tho Indians once get baok to tho
west side of the great river they won't
rest until they get a few scalps. Tbo
Apaches have raided Mr. Payne's ranch
threo times and stolen any amount of
stock.
"You can't depend upon them," said
the ranoher. "Just as Boon as thoy get
book Gerontmo wlll lead them to tho
San Carlos Agency and then tho trouble
will begin. At their toasts they drink
a grain whisky which makes them crazy.
Then they start out on plundering expeditions. If they aro removed it will
be against tbo wialios of the people of
Arizona and Now Mexico."
With Mr. Payne ia J. B. Shepard. Ho
Is the champion Indian story-teller of
the West Speaking of Gonoral Crook,
he said: "I'll novor forgot whon I
fought beside Genoral Crook in
an Apache battle. Wo had beon
after tho redskins some days,
and one noon wo sighted u band at Crazy
Jim's Guloh. The General started'us on
a run, and the way wo sailed after tho
Apaches was a caution. Thoy stopped
and set fire to the prairie grass, hoping
to bead us off, but wo fooled thorn.
When they saw that they couldn't get
away they rounded up their ponies in a
circle and stood in the center. We skirmished around a bit and then sailed iu.
General Crook has a heart like an ox,
and be said: itoys, just slay a fow dozen
of the warriors. Don't kill ail, just
enough to lot them know that wo aro
the people.1 'Twas a sweltering day and
there wasn't a soot on tho sun. After
throwing off our coats and rolling up our
trousers we opened fire. In a tew seconds the Apaohes began to drop. Taking
advantage ot an open place I led a crowd
right Into the midst of tbe Indians.
Suddenly my pistol was hurled from my
band and I had to work with an old
sword. Being pretty handy with tho
big knife I more than held my own. I
had Just laid out my tenth man whon t.
felt a touoh on tho elbow. Tho air was
so filled with Indian hair you could not
see the sun and I asked:
•"Who Is there?'       \
" 'Gonoral Crook,1 was the reply.
••'What is It sir?'
"'I wish to restrain you,' spoke the
General. 'There is nothing I admire so
muoh as a good tighter—you know that
Jim, but when it comes to turning this
little spot on tbe pralrio into a slaughterhouse I kick.'
"Appreciating the fact that I had gono
too far I withdrew, but from that day
until now Genoral Crook and I havo boen
like two brothers."—Chicago Tribune.
HANDEL IN  A  RAGE.
The Peculiar Way lo Whteh the Maestro
Entertained a London Audit nee.
Persons have boen known to appro-.
Pluto  tbat  Indescribable   mixture   of
Round produced by the preparatory tun*
Ing of an orchestra with Iho organ even
more than (be performance itself. Handel was not of this opinion,   After he
wu onoe at bis desk, woe betide the belated fiddle that scraped a fifth, or the
Inexperienced flute that attempted the
least "tootle."
It was a grand night at the opera.
i The Prince of Wales bad arrived In good
L time, remembering how Handel had
I been annoyed sometimes at hti coming
I In late.  The Instruments, supposed to
| be In perfeet tune, wen lying ready,
Land the perfonnerf entered.   Alia! a
Vag had oropt in before them and put
•very one of tbe stringed instruments
putoftunol
Handel entered! all the bows were
raised together, and at the given beat
>ey all started off eon spirito.   The of-
fleet must have been at if everyone of
[the performors bad   been   musically
J tumbling down-stairs.   The   unhappy
[maestro rushed wildly from his plaee,
r kicked to pieces the first double bass
I that opposed him, and seizing a kettle-
r drum hurled H violently at the leader
' of the band.   The effort sent bis full-
1 bottomed wig flying, but he did not
heed It; and rushing bareheaded to the
footlights, he stood for a few momenta
amid the roars of the houae, snorting
with rage and choked with passion. Tne
Prince, although highly amused, soon
thought this kind of entertainment had
lasted long enough, and going down In
pernn he besought Handel to be calm,
aud with much difficulty prevailed on
him to resume his wig and hts baton.—

Our heautiful city is dormant no longer, its long silence has
suddenly ended, and it now ranks foremost among the cities of
the Pacific Coast; its wealth and population have increased at a
remarkable rate.
In 1888 the total value of taxable property in the city limits
was hardly $1,000,000, while to-day it aggregates nearly $5,000,000.
In 1887 the population was 3,000, now it is over 8,000.
The City Council has undertaken immense public works, and
a large number of public and private buildings are under construction.
The city is now the Fresh Water Terminus of the Canadian
Pacific, and by tho first of July next it will be connected by the
New Westminster Southern with the great American transcontinental routes.
Noting all the foregoing facts New Westminster's future prosperity is assured, and no other city in the Province offers such
splendid inducements to investors.
Our lists of city and district property are complete. Call and

Ploughing is in full blast all over the

farming operations generally were never
so delayed by unfavorable weather.

Mr. G. D. Band has a card in this

requisitions will not be brought into

before the end of the week the number
will have reached'at least half a dozen,
several of which certainly will not wait
for a requisition.
The oolachan run-has set iu at last
and confidence in the river is re-established. The Indians say the weather
will not remain cold any', longer, as the
oolachan is the true harbinger of warm

this turns out .to be correct. The run is
just 14 days later than last year. The

better on the average than for several
years past.

from the institution during the year, 12
of whom had recovered. Tlie cost of the

The  -tedl-trllmtlon Bill.
A special to Thk Columbian nt 4:3
o'clock thiB afternoon announces that
the RediBtrilmtioi. Bill will not be laid
before the Honse until to-morrow after-
noon, consequently the general anxiety
and interest will be further prolonged
for 24 hours. It is generally supposed
that the provisions of the bill have
already been made public, but our despatch announces that the bill has not
gone to the Government printer's hands
yet, and it would seem from this that
there is nothing very sure about it after
nil
one that scored a cow's eye, at least it
scored on a cow several hundred yards
distant from the target and killed it instantly.
The Y. M. C. A. reception has been
postponed for one week from Wednesday next, the loth inst.,so as not to conflict with tlie entertainment of the Lacrosse Minstrels to take place in Herring's Opera House on the last mentioned date.
Nearly an inch of snow fell yesterday
morning between 7 and 10 o'clock. For
n time the ground was -vhite with the
"beautiful," but rain followed and the
Blush wub converted into water. Winter
seems to be lingering most determinedly
in the lap of spring.
Tho body of the old man Ankers has
not beon recovered yet. A thorough
search has been made all along the river
bank but without revealing n trace of
the body. It is possible it may be
thrown up by the waters in tho course
of a week, but there Is a greater possibility of its never being recovered.

Land Bonded.
Mr. O. B. Acker mini has bonded some
1,400 acres of land on Suinns Lake to
Mr. Leemsden for a sum slightly exceeding 130,000. This laud is all well situated, and excellent for grazing nnd agricultural purposes. It is equal in many
respects to the best delta land, nnd will
raise crops equnl to nny in the Province.
The snle hinges on the Sumus dyking
scheme, and will not be closed until the
building of the dyke is an assumed fact.
The value of land generally depends on
the dyking of the river between Chilliwack nnd Lnngely, and consequently
the mutter is one of grent importance to
the settlers.

Mechanics' Lira Law.
Capt. E. S. Scouller and the deputation sent to Victoria to urge certain
amendments to the Mechanic's Lien
Law, returned ou Saturday, well pleased
with the result of their visit, although
regretting it had not been made much
earlier. The amendments asked will
make the owner of a building responsible
for all labor and material employed in
its construction. This will prevent
bogus contractors and dishonest specu-
lotors from getting contracts, for the
reason that intending builders will see
that none but responsible persons got
the work. It will also ensure tlie
mechanic and laborer his pay under anv
circumstances. The bill was to be laid
beforo the House to-day, and, if possible,
it will bo made law before the session
ends. The Government expressed their
regret to the deputation that tho bill
had not been introduced earlier, but
would do their utmost to push it
through.

Camble streets. A drunken fellow who
can be seen often staggering about the
city streets, was passing the laundry
shack, and, happening to catch sight of
a Chiuumau ironing some clothes, became much Interested in the novel way
the Oriental bus of throwing on tho
starch, viz., by ejecting it from his
mouth. After looking on for a time tlie
fellow opened the door and walked in,
The Chinamen did not take much
notice, but went on with their work
One Chinaman had just taken a large
mouthful of starch, and, with cheeks
puffed out, was preparing to distribute
it over a shirt, when the intruder, with
his open hand, hit the ironer a sharp,
hard blow over the mouth. The result
was, the starch, or most of it, went
down his throat, nearly choking him,
A row then ensued, all the Chinamen
pitched on the drunk, and, after beating
him, threw him out. He retired, crestfallen but satisfied.— Sunday's News.
The  Ankara  Inquest.
Capt. Pittendrigh resumed the inquest
this afternoon in the case of Mrs. Ankers, found drowned near the Ross-McLaren mills on Thursday last. The only-
evidence adduced was that of Mrs. Ankers, jr., which, however, did not throw
any further light on the mystery. Mr.
Moresby watched the case for the crown
and conducted the examination.
Capt. Pittendrigh, at the conclusion
of the evidence, carefully reviewed the
case from first to last, anil then asked
the jury to find a verdict. The jury retired and later brought in the following:
Mrs. Ann Margaret Ankers was found
drowned and suffocated on the banks of
the Fraser Rivera short distance from
the Ross-McLaren Mills, but how, or by
what means the said woman became
drowned' aud suffocated, no evidence
doth appear to the jurors.

A Canadian National   HUtary.
At the last convention of the Quebec
Provincial Association of Protestant
teachers the following resolution was
unanimously carried:
"Whereas this convention believes
that any text book of Canadian history
ought to give every Province such recognition as shall unite the interests of
all Canadians and conduce towards the
creation of oneness of patriotic sentiment ; and, whereas, in the opinion of
this convention the text books of history in use are unsuited for this purpose:
"Be it resolved—That the teachers of
the Provincial Association in convention
assembled, do hereby record their desire to to see such a work authorized for'
use in our schools, and that a committee
bo appointed to correspond with other
Provincial Associations and with other
parties regarding this matter, said committee to report at the next annual convention."
The fact that there ure many excellent
works giving the history of the several
provinces separately is recognized. A
text hook is sought which shall give the
history of the different sections of the
Dominion iih nearly as possible concurrently, there being many points of historical contact between the provinces
from their earliest periods. It ia believed thut a suitable text can be written by one man, assisted by a committee
of authors, provided it is submitted before publication to the various ministers
of education in order to have them eliminate, amend or add such passages as
they think desirable, and that the book
thus prepared might be authorized for
use in all Cunudian schools irrespective
of creed or nationality.
The desire is to have this question
discussed in all Provincial Associations
and subsequently ut a Dominion conference of teachers.

Shortly after the Sound steamer North
Pacific had left her Seattle dock for this
city yesterday, a passenger dunning to
be from the land of the Mikado presented himself nt the purser's office and
paid for a ticket to Victoria. A few
minutes later, having had time to think
over it, tho purser decided to satisfy
himself that the passenger was really a
Japanese, and not a very cute Chinaman. He accordingly walked quietly up
to him, and without warning of any
kind snatched off his hat. A carefully
colled queue was disclosed. Deciding
that it would be useless to attempt further misrepresentation, the Celestial
pleaded not to be locked up, as was the
intention, and he was allowed to wander
about at his own sweet fancy until the
steamer arrived at her dock here. Then
in the excitement of landing, he was
for the moment forgotten. Watching
his chance he slipped ashore and when
the officer came to look for liim—lo 1 he
wns gone. The Customs officials had in
the meant i me got wind of the affair, and
they demanded from the purser the poll
tax of $50 due upon the clever Chinaman.
There was no escape for the steamer unless the tax was paid, and so $50,
chargeable to profit aud loss, was produced from the coffers of the U. P. R,
The Chinaman is, no doubt, still hugging himself over hia shrewd operation;
when he feels at leisure his friends on
the boat would be glad to see him. He
can depend on receiving a cordial reception.— Saturday's Colonist.
