Another Strike.
New Yqhk, April 18.—A large number
of boiler makers in tins city struck today and it is believed the strike will involve all iron works in tlio city and will
probably spread to other cities. The
trouble is said to have originated in tlie
fact that.the navy yards pay better
wages and exact fewer hours of work
than private firms. The men demand
concessions which will place them on au
equal footing with a similar class of
' borers fender the government.
The Healeni are Safe.
Washington, April 18,—The str. Alert
is not to go to Alaska after all, which
will doubtless be good news to tho seal
poachers. The navy department was
informed to-day that it would take at
least 12 weeks to get the Alert in condition to put to sea, and as it waB intended to have the vessel on the ground
to assist the revenue boats already there
it Is very likely orders will be issued to
have the Alert remain where she is.
Life In Texan.
Ei. Paso, Texas, April 18.—John
Barnes, a rancher, living about 8 miles
northeast of this city, came in this
morning and reported that during the
night hiB horses and a large portion of
hiB cattle had been stolen. He procured the necessary papers for the arrest
of the thieves, and Charles 11. Fuaael-
man, commander of the state rangers,
went with Barnes to make arrests, A
message itiBt in from the ranch brings
the intelligence that the thieves opened.
fire on Fusselman after he had served
the papers, and he wub killed. A detachment of six men will go in pursuit
of them; and there is little doubt that
the thieves or their bodies will be
brought In.  -
A Terrible K»ploaIon.|
Cygnet, Ohio, April 18.—A wagon
loaded with nitro-glyceriue shells, used
in shooting oil and gas wells, exploded
thiB morning with terrible force. The
two men on the wagon were blown a
hundred yards and nothing was left of
them but a few strips of clothing. The
horses were both killed and the wagon
reduced to kindling wood. The report
was distinctly heard a distance of 10
miles, and in the immediate vicinity
windows were broken and chimneya
levelled.    	
Preparing for the Pray*
Nkw York, April 18.—A special to
the Times from Albany says: Notwithstanding statements to the contrary,
coming from New York City, the employees on the Central Hudson Railway
are preparing for a big strike, which
they promise will equal that of 1877.
The chief grievance is against Theodore
Yorhees, The men assert that it has
been his policy ever since he became
general superintendent to curtail ex*
penses and double the work of the men.
Tlie first aggressive step was taken by
the men tonlay when tlio. foreman refused to operate tho switches at remote
Elaces where flagmen's services had
sen dispensed with. This necessitated
the waiting of freight trains until switchmen could be procured from other
places. Meetings are being held by the
employees frequently. The West Shore
men still hold out, and it now looks*as
though the Central men will have to
strike alone if a strike is finally agreed
upon.         •
A (.treat Strike Poialble.
New York, April 18. —The Sun's
special from Lockport, N. Y., says: The
trouble along the New York Central
over the wholesale discharge of men, is
spreading rapidly. From private and
trustworthy sources it is learned that
the Knights of Labor switchmen and
freightmeu of the whole Vanderbilt system of Hues have been holding secret
meetings and the executive committee
have named a committee to wait upon
the executive officials of the company
to ask the removal of the general superintendent of the road or else change his
—ilicy. against the men. Orders have
•en received from New York to remove
some 50 or more men ou the Niagara
Falls division. Work trains are to lose
from 8 to 10 men each. The men are In
earnest in the matter of a strike. There
has beon a man here in conference with
the switchmen and bnikemen, and every
■nan is made to sign a cast iron agreement to go out when ordered. From
the talk among the men it is thought
that the whole Vanderbilt system will
be affected. Not only are the men dissatisfied with this sudden and unex-
Slained dismissal, but the heads of the
apartments condemn the policy. The
result is anxiously awaited on all Bides.
A Halfhreed Belle.
New York, April 18.—A special to the
Herald from Cheyenne, Wyo., says: Dr.
J. A. Schuelke Bitot and killed druggist
Sullivan in his drug store at Lander,
Fremont Co.. this evening. The doctor
ih iu jail. Tne accounts of the quarrel
which led to the shooting differ widely.
One is that the daughter of a wealthy
cattleman and his Arapahoe wife was
the cause of it. This half breed maid
is extremely pretty, being the belle of
that section and a terrible flirt. Once
she encouraged the attentions of a pretty
Indian ehieftan and a bloody war of
short duration resulted, whon she coat
off the red skin. Schuelke and Sullivan,
It Ib said, wooed the girl and were jealous of each other.
ceeded the estimate by £100,000 and the
telegraph receipts by £90,000. The
exact surplus was £3,221,000. The
national debt iu 1880 had been reduced
£8,205,000. Adding together the previous two years the total reduction was
£23,823,000, the largest amount on record for a similar period. For tlie coming fiscal year the estimated expenditure
was £86,857,000, and the estimated
revenue £00,406,000. Indian and colonial .postage was reduced 2)£d; the
duty on tea was reduced to 2d. per
pound and tlte duty on currants from
7s. to 2s. per cwt. The increased duty
on beer imposed in 1889 was taken off.
The inhabited house duty wus reduced
and working class tenements under £20
rental were exempted from the House
Tax.
The Government proposed to raise the
rentals for the purposes of the County
Councils by an increased duty of 6d. per
gallon on spirits and 3d. per barrel on
beer ("Hear, hear," aud "Oh, Oh").
This would yield £1,000,000. He hoped
that the friends of temperance would be
satisfied und thut the publicans would
take a broad view of the question.
OTTAWA NOTES.
The Imperial Budget*
London, April 17.—The Budget was
to-day introduced into the House of
Commons by Mr. GoBchen. The expenditure is shown to have exceeded the
estimates by £11,600, while tho receipts
exceeded the estimates by over £8,000,-
000. The duty on alcoholic beverages
realised over £6,800,000. The beer duty
exceeded the estimates by £270,000; the
duty on foreign spirits by £421,000; the
duty on homo spirits by £1.010.000. and
that on wine by £12,000. The drink bill
complete exceeds the estimates by £1,-
800,000. The receipts from tho duties
on coffee, cocoa and chicory has decreased £17.500, while those of tea had
Increased £40,000.
The groBs revenues from alcoholic
liquors hud been £20,265,000. This
showed that there hud been au unusual
rush for the, beer barrel, the spirit bottle
and the wine decanter. Tho largest increase of all the spirits had beon runt,
which was drunk mainly at the seaports.
The number of drums taken in 1888
reached a total of 245,000,000, and iu 1880
the appalling aggregate of 275,000,000.
"It waB remarkable," Mr. Gosohon said.
"that In, 1875 and 1876, tho greatest
drinking years previously recorded,
there had been tho same rush. Increased prosperity, therefore, meant
Increased consumption of alcoholic
liquors."   The postal receipts had ex-

A NEW SETTLEMENT--ANNIEDALK.
The settlers of the north-eastern portion of Surrey Municipality held a mass
meeting on Wednesday last, the 16th
inst., to discuss a communication received from the Education Department,
respecting required school accommodation in the district. Mr. W. Williams
was elected chairman, aud Mr. A. M.
Parker chosen as secretary of the meeting.
The communication from the Education Department propoaed a six mile
area to form a school section. This was
considered too large by tlte meeting, and
on motion of Mr. Thompson, seconded
by Mr. A. McDonald, a resolution was
passed, objecting to so great a distance
east and west, as by so doing it would
place the greater part of the inhabitants
too far fvom the school house, there being practically no roads.
On motion of Rev. Mr. Gordon, seconded by Mr. W. Gillies, the secretary
was instructed to write to tho Inspector
of Schools, giving the views of the meat-
After several able speeches by Messrs.
A, McDonald, Jenkins, aud Adams, and
Conn. C. Yeomans, of Langley, the
meeting closed on the school question.
Tito meeting then took up the question of the advisability of giving the
new and thriving settlement a name.
Mr. J. J. McDonald proposed "Annie-
dale," which was unanimously adopted.
The newly christened settlement is
bounded as follows: On the north by
the Fraser, ou the south by the Yule
road, on the east by Port Kells, and on
the west by the Coast Meridian road.
The Columbian wishes every prosperity
to the.new settlement, and trusts that
its school and road requirements will be
met as fur us possible by the Government and the Municipality.
Hot For ltrltl.h Columbia.
For somo weeks pnst a few enterprising citizens have been selecting from the
best stocks aud herds of the province a
cargo of thoroughbred horses aud cattle
for British Columbia, and, having secured a shipment of nine animals, Messrs.
W. L. Young and Jas. S. Morcer left on
Tuesday laat for B. C. with the valuable
cargo consisting of the following, viz: 1
5-year-old imported Clydesdale stallion.
"Home Ruler." (This splendid animal
took first prise at the Toronto Industrial
for the best Clydesdale stallion with five
of his progeny, besides carrying off the
laurels at numerous less important
shows. He is a superior horse with
short togs aud massive flat bone and
good feet, weighs about 2,000 pounds
and Is a splendid mover.) Two span
heavy draught brood mares; 1 Durham
bull, 14 months old; 2 heifers, 2 years
old. and 1 heifer, 11 months old, all of
which have registered pedigrees. This
is an undertaking involving a large

following, which will be of interest to
British Columbians: "The Irish Times'

days ago Bishop Ridley, a distinguished
prolate from Vancouver Island.    ""

PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT,
Wednesday'* Proceeding* Continued.
(From Our Own correspondent.)
THE LIEN LAW.
Hon. Mr. Davie wub surprised to heur
that the Lien Act of thiB Province waa
giving dissatisfaction to the laboring
classes of the Province. Tlie hon gentleman thon proceeded to show that there
were few or no instances on record of
the contractors having decamped leaving
their inborors unpaid. That County
Court judge who had said (by Mr. Cunningham's account) that the Act was
unworkable should be called to account
for such an assertion.. The lion, member from Westminster City hud probably
misunderstood that judge's remake. The
judges should not givo up tho net, but
set their minds to working It out, as wua
dono elsewhere on othor acts. They hud
to Btudy it und do their best to understand it, not drop the net and condemn
it as unworkable. He would ask as the
hon. member for Yale hud asked, for an
explanation from the bill ns to why it
was unworkable; thut gentleman had
merely asserted that tho act was wrong
but he had not shown where the wrong
existed. To be wrong the act must have
been at some time or other so passed
upon in trial in some court. He would
like the hot), member to state when
those cases happened.
House here adjourned at 6 p. m.
EVENING   SESSION.
On resuming at 8 o'clock Hon. Mr.
Robson presented two massages. 1,
Enclosing Bill to authorize the Government to pay interest at 3 per cent upon
moneys paid into the Treasury under
the Act relating to payment of moneys
into and out of court. 2. Enclosing a
Bill to authorize the Government to pay
F. B. MacNnmee A Co., #10,000 rnd interest at 5 per cent in full settlement of
nil claims re graving dock.
Hou, Mr, Davie resumed his speech
on the Mechanics Lien Amendment Bill.
Mr. Cunningham succeeded him in
explanation of his position. He was
only representing the mechanics and
laboring classes of New Westminster in
this mutter, and in asking the amendment of tho Lien Act only voiced their
requests.
Hon. Mr. Davie suid he hud no fault
to find with the language of tlie Bill, but
to the principle of it. The principle, so
far as he had aeon, was entirely pier-
nicious. He would aay that the Lieu
Act of 1888 wae anything but an imperfect Act, no difficulty had been found in
working under it, The Act was introduced with tho utmost care und he
could not understand honorable gentleman getting up in tbe House and saying it was ao unworkable, that mechanics
were leaving tho Province in consequence. The present amendment wub
an attempt to pull the Act of 1888 to
pieces; an attempt which would not be
tolerated.
Mr. HubIuiu said the principal fault in
the present act waa the difficulty of
making it work. Two judgea of his ac-
quuintance hud said that great difficulty
was experienced iu working under the
act. Mr. Haslam gave several reasons
for his opinions and said he knew there
great deal of dissatisfaction nmoiiL
mechanics aud laboring men in regard
to the act. For himself he could Bay
that he hud never seen an iiiBtuncc
where it failed to work in any case he
ever had anything to do witli, But the
mechanics were not to blame in coming
to the Legislative Assembly for justice
whon they wero told by judges on the
bench that the act was remarkable. The
mechauics were not to blame in'carrying the matter to the House. -
Hon. Mr. Pooley fully endorsed tho
remarks of tho attorney -general. In hts
opinion this amendment should not be
allowed to pass the House. Ho disagreed entirely with the proposal to alter
tho present act; it did work woll, ho
and tho attorney-general hud worked
under it nnd knew whether it did or not.
Had not the hon. member for Westminster City plainly stated to the House
that mechanics wore leaving the Province because of the unworkableness of
the act, he would have stamped such an
assertion us a fabrication. But he was
bound to believe it us the hon. member
doubtless knew what he was talking
about. He was very sorry, however,
that mechanics should leave any part of
the Province because thoy had been
told that this act was unworkable. It
was too often the case that when a good
act had been established, somo one or
other ciinie into the House next session
with an amendment that waa in reality
another act; the present - amendment
was not in the interest of tho mechanic,
lie would not say that some slight
amendments were necessary to tho act
of 1888, but this amendment wont altogether beyond bounds.
Mi\ Orr had never heard a complaint
in Vancouver in regard to this law. He
He thought the introducer of tho bill
waB mistaken iu saying thus he had
aeon mechanics leaving Vancouver for
the other side, where it waa said thore
was better protection for thorn. Such a
thing ho (the speaker) nevor saw
Mr. Cunningham rose to a point of
explanation and said the Attorney-General had impugned his motives ana thoso
of the delegation which hud waited upon
him in regard to this question.
Hon. Mr. Davie dented this nnd said
the delegation had not waited on him.
Mr. Cunningham—Well, they tried to
wait on you.
I was to bo found in tho Attorney
General'b office.
■ Mr, Cunningham said that he was
perfectly satisfied that what he suid wns
strictly correct. He hud stated nothing
but what had boon given to liim ub facts.
Hou. Mr. Robson said it appeared to
him after having heard tho words of tho
Attorney-General nud president of the
council that ho could not support thiB
bill. One might almost say that after
the extraordinary statement alleged to
have been made by a county court judge
in reference to the working of thiB act
it would be better for somo intelligent
layman to interpret tlte act. They
would not be justified in tinkering with
au act which had received tho earnest
and studious attention of the lato Attorney-General. He had tried his beat
to produce a fair, just and equitable act
for tho benefit of the inechanicB, and he
(tho speaker) approached that act with
almost veneration. Bill road a second
time nnd committed, Mr. Mason in the
chair.
Mr, Semlin said Mr. Cunningham had
no right to make tho assertion he did
that afternoon in regard to the mechan-
leuving British Columbia. The
honorablo member for Westminster
City had stated that he knew of threo
cases whoro that hud happened, but
surely that was no reason for making
such a gonoral statement as he worded.
These reports got abroad and did this
Province incalculable damage. Mr.
Cunningham iu reply said ho hud only
stated the facts us they wero given io
him, and he wanted to know why it was
thnt this country was ao far behind tho
Stutoh acrosa the lino. There wub evidently something wanting in tho lawmakers of this Province, nnd thero waa
only too plainly nn unwillingness to help
tho laboring man in this Houso. There
wns nn apparent wish to cause litigation
in the legislative Assembly.
Hon. Mr. Pooley said as one of tho
law-makers of this House ho repudiated
the statement, of tho honorablo member
in regard to litigation, ub utter rubbish
—utter rubbish. That he (Mr, Cunningham) did not know what ho wits
talking about, wub only too evident,
His action In bringing hi this amendment showed plaiiuythat ho wns totally
ignorant of tho whole matter.
Mr. Cunningham said he would state
; the facts as they had been given to him
in spite of the ire of the president of the
Council. We must not set ourselves up
as infallible, even the president of the
Council must not do that, and he (the
speaker) was not to be terrorized by anybody.
Hon. Mr. Davie said that in no country on the North American continent
were the interests and rights of tbe poor
man so sacredly protected as in the province of British Columbia. Iu no country were his wages bo sure of being paid
and his collections more surely made.
You cannot meot ou tho streets of the
cities of British Columbia a man who
has been defrauded out of his wages.
There are of cause sometimes isolated
cases, in which the circumstances do
not redound to the credit of the man
himself. It was in those countries
where the i-ighta of the workingmon
were so loudly talked about that the
worki'nginan's rights wore most neglected.
Tho bill was completely transmogrified during its stormy and eventful career through committeo; but some excellent amendments were made to the act,
nevertheless. It was a caso of amending tho amendments with a vengeance.
The mortal remains of tho bill are aB
follows:
Her Majesty, by nml with tbe advice and
consent of the Legislative Assembly ot the Pro-
vliiec of British Coin ml. in, enacts an follows:
1. Section of the "M.i-lmu.a' Lien Act," being
chapter seventy-four of the " Consolidated Acts,
1868," Is hereby amended by adding thereto the
following words: "Nothing, however, In this
" section shall prevent the lion from attaching
" upon the equity of redemption or other Inter-
"est of the owner of the land subject to such
" mortgage or charge."
2. The figure and letters " 7th" In the last Hue
but one of the thirteenth section of the said act
are hereby repealed and the words " twenty-
" second" substituted In lieu thereof.
11. There are hereby added to theend of section
sixteen of the said act the words following:'
" And, when not otherwise provided, the pro-
" ceedlngs shall be, ns nearly aB possible, according to.the practice and proeeedure in
" force iu the County Court; and, when these
" are no guide, the practice and procedure used
" in the supreme Court shall be followed; and
" it It is made to appear to a County Court Judge
" tbat the aggregate amount of the lions to be
" enforced exceeds the jurisdiction of the
" County Court the Judge may make an order
" transferring the matter Into the Supreme
'■ Court In the same manner as If the proceed-
" iiigs had originated there."
■J, The word " said" and the word "or." flint
occurring lu the tlrst line of section eighteen of
said net, are hereby repealed, and the words " of
" the Supreme or County" are hereby Inserted
next after the word " judgo" lu the said line.
6. Section twenty-four of the said aet is hereby amended by inserting after tho word "liens,"
lu the seventh line of the said section, the
words " or that such lien has been Improperly
" Hied, or that such lien has otherwise ceased to
" exlBt."
6, When any mechanic, artisan, contractor,
sub-contractor, builder, mill-owner, merchant,
or other person, nas furnished or procured materials for use In count meting works or making
Improvements, such materials shall not be capable of being sold by private contract for any

whether the snnic have or have not been in tho
whole or In part worked or made pnrt of said
works or improvements.
7. In ease it should lH.miu.i_ to npnenr to Ihe
Court before which the liens are enforced tbat
the contract price for the works or improvements hns been fixed too low by the contractor
aud owner with a view to defrauding those who
shall not be bound to I the Hen to tbe contract price, as mentioned In section five of the
said aet, as amended by this act, but may extend the same to tho actual value of the said
works and Improvements, and suoh extension
shall, for tho purposes of this act, be considered
the contract price.
8. The several judges uf the Supreme and
County Courts or any two of the judges of such
county respectively muv make general rules and
regulations not Inconsistent with this act, aro
applicable, in case of rules and regulations
niadu by tlie Supreme Court judges to the Supreme Court aud in cose of rules aud regulations
made by the County Court judges to the County

nttss before such Court, under their act, and for

Mr. Cunningham, in moving the
adoption of the report of the select committee on education, said that he was
disappointed at being selected as one of
this committee for tbe reasons that at
that time ho had not oven seen Mr.
Muir, or read any of his letters, dodgers,
or other productions; and was not at all
well-informed ou the question of the
Education Department difficulty. He
was happy to say that throughout his
life he bad always found hia sympathies
quickly enlisted on the side of the weakest, and be had always been ready to
take tbe part of the unfortunate and. the
oppressed. This ho could Bay without
any self-laudation or desire to pose before the House. And it was this spirit
that animated him towards Mr. Muir iu
tho earlier days of the enquiry. Indeed,
he could say with perfect sincerity that
if nny prejudice marked hiB thought or
action at that timo it was all in Mr.
Muir's favor. Then ho felt disposed to
allow Mr. Muir a vory louse rein and
plenty of liberty to make out Ida caso in
Its best light and permitted him to ask
questions that, in the light of later
knowledge, wore irrelevant and inadmissible. But the honest desire of the
committee was to have the investigation full aud free aud that Mr. Muir
should have ever op|iortunity of establishing his case. This leniency Mr.
Muir was not only not grateful for, but
shamefully abused. The course which
he pursued iu attempting to prove that
he nud a grievance was far more calculated to injure than to aid hiin. The
committeo bad positively refused to
admit hearsay evidence unless Mr, Muir
gave the names of thoso from whom his
information was obtained. And principally for this reason tho ire of Mr.Muir
hud fallen upon him (tho speaker) in
a letter which appeared in the Times on
April 12th. The honorable gentleman
thon read the letter and denounced it
as a tissue of falsehoods. Mr. Muir had
been granted evory indulgence, bo might
even say license, in formulating his
uestions. But any lingering suspicion
hat ho (the speaker) might have had
that Mr. Muir did havo a grievance wore
now totally dissipated. Much na ho regretted to make so harsh a statement he
must say that Mr. Muir's evidence was
utterly unreliable. Not the slightest
trust could lie placed in any of hia statements ; aud horo in this very connection
was an argument which ho fancied would
be hard to answer—if Mr. Muir would
wantonly miflroBpcct him (the
speaker) who had never dono him a
wrong what would ho do to thoso whom
ho regarded ns bis onomica? The honorable gentleman then read a lengthy
extract from the evidence to prove
whether or not Mr. Muir was given
evory chance to testify.
Those readings amply showed thnt he
had received fair play in this particular,
No injustice whatever had boon done to
nny one in this enquiry, und at least of all
to Mr. Muir. If any interests had suf-
[erred thoy wero those of tho p«bljc_and

CIVIC MATTERS.
On another page will be found an interesting report of an interview with
Mayor Brown by a representative of
this paper touching questions of paramount civic interest at the present
' time. While tho public are naturally
and laudably anxious for a speedy and
wise solution of all these questions, affecting aB thoy do the City's welfare and
prosperity not a little, we think the
majority of the citizens and ratepayers
will be satisfied, from a perusal of the
interview in question, that the Mayor
and Aldermen have a good and comprehensive grasp of the situation and aro
looking after the City's interests in the
prom tees ably and well and furthering a
a solution of tho important railway,
bridge, ferry, and improvement questions with all possible dispatch. The
ratepayers of course are tho llnnl arbiters
in all these matters, and, from present
appearances, It is safe to predict that
thoy will heartily endorse the policy
aud actions of the Mayor and Council
for Christianity in an enthusiastic degree count for anything, we take it that
Stanley's estimate says a great deal.
It is a matter for very legitimate pride
that the intrepid nature of our race does
not aeem in the least degree to be losing
its character, and probably Africa, more
than any other spot on the earth's surface during recent yean, has drawn out
this quality. Livingstone and Moffat,
Gordon and Stanley, Mackay and a host
of others, riie to the memory, and
whilst Christianity continues to endow
her children with the bravery she has
enriched them with in the past we Bhall
be unable to repeat Ariosto's eulogy.
Nature, after making him, broke the mould,"
because each succeeding African missionary seems at least to equal, if not excel, his brethren in all those qualities
which were so conspicuous in Mackay
" the St. Paul of Uganda."
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
THE   EDUCATION   DEPARTMENT.
We published yesterday the majority
report of the select House Committee
on edncation, and to-day we submit the
minority report of the same committee.
The full committee, consisting of Messrs.
Thos. Cunningham (chairman), George
B. Martin, W. H. Ladner, Henry Croft
and Charles A. Semlin (threo Govern-
ment and two Opposition members),
wns appointed over a month ago, on motion of Hon. Mr. Robson, Ministerof Education, to enquire into alleged abuses
irregularities iu connection with his
department. The allegations, it will be
remembered, had been made most recklessly and repeatedly for many months
immediately prior to the commencement
of the present sessions of the Local
House, by the mouthpiece of tho Opposition, tho Victoria Times, and nc
sooner had tho committee been
appointed, our readers will recollect, than the same paper, wlilch had
been so free and bold with its charges,
made a most unblushing attempt to pave
the way for its anticipated condemnation by the committee. It will be seen
by the reports that the Times wub not
far wrong in anticipating that its reckless charges and insinuations against
the Education Department, und particularly against the Minister of Education, would be shown to be utterly
groundless and placed in thoir true light
as malicious and unscrupulous efforts to
manufacture political capital at any cost.
While tbo reports as a whole completely exculpate the Minister of Education and IiIb department from the
damaging charges made and bo persistently reiterated by the organ of the Opposition in Victoria, that paper, itself,
does not come out of the ordeal without
being very seriously discredited in the
eyes of all truth-loving and fair-minded
people.     ^^^^^^^^^
M. A. MACKAY.
The rumor thut Mr. M. A. Mackay iB
dead means little to most persons, because comparatively few know anything
about the man whom Stanley ranked
with the missionaries Livingstone and
Moffat, It waB Mackay who planted
the seeds of Christianity in Uganda, a
field of but scanty promise but immense
peril. Although Mr, Mackay waa not a
clergyman, he waB generally referred to
by the title "reverend," and tho fact of
his being a layman does not in the
least detract from his immense enthmiasm ub a Christian missionary. Stanley,
deceived by his youthful appearance,
took Mr. Mackay for a young man of not
more than thirty-two years of age, but
in point of fact he hod turned the corner of two score when the explorer camo
across him. Born in Edinburgh, he was
the son of a Presbyterian minister better
known as tho author of "Mackay'h Geographies." Young Mackay studied for
an engineer, receiving a training equal
to that of the averuge barrister or
clergyman iu England; und soon after entering upon tho practice of
his profession rose to high position in
Berlin at a mechanical engineering
works. In November 1875, Stanley's
letter to the London Daily Telegraph,
describing his intercourse with Mteaa,
King of Uganda, made its appearance,
and Mackay saw it. At that time he
was twenty-six years of age, and, fired
with enthusiasm for the evangelization
of the Dark Continent, offered his services to the Church Missionary Society,
which had just then received donations
amounting to £10,000 for the African
missions. Mackay's offer was accepted,
and with seven others he went to the
heart ot an unknown land. Since that
time he never once left tbe field of his
self-saorlflce even to return to the coast,
and at bis post it is reported he has
died.
Ho exercised groat influence with the
Waganda, who regarded him with a
kind of superstitious awe occasioned iu
a great measure by hiB wonderful mechanical skill. Although bo far from
civilizing influences, Mr. Mackay kept
himself well abreast of current thought
and literature by diligently perusing
the leading reviews with which friends
fn Europe regularly kept him supplied. His portrait, taken when he loft
England for Uganda, represents a man
of handsome faco and determination,
well cut features, and a lofty forehead,
from which the waving hair iB brushed
well back, the Arm mouth at that time
being shaded by the suspicion of a moustache. Such was the man of whom
Stanley lately wrote, when he declared
" These mission societies certainly do
" continue to produce extraordinary
" men," and, if courage, zeal and love
It is well known to all who have studied music that there are three fundamental notes, viz., the first, third and
fifth of the Bcale, represented in the natural key of C major by the letterB 0, E
and G. These notes, when Bounded together, produce the common chord aud
are the foundation of all harmony in
musical composition. So it Is in chromatics—there nre likewise only three
fundamental colors—blue, red and yellow, forming the triad, whence arises all
harmony in painting.—Ex.
Benj. Franklin was once dining with
an Englishman and a Frenchman, it is
related, when the Englishman proposed
that, as their three nations were represented, each should propose a toast lu
honor of his own country. The English
man proposed "England—the sun that
lights the nations." The Frenchman
proposed "La France, the moon that by
her magic rules the tides of the world."
Franklin smiled and proposed, "George
Washington, the Joshua of America,
who commanded the sun and moon to
stand still."
A letter from Stanley to his New York
publishers, Charles Scribner's Sons,
says tbat at date of his letter most of
the manuscript of his book, "In Darkest
Africa," had been prepared, und ho expected to have the remainder completed
by April 1st. The veteran explorer
seems to have lost in his frequent and
long abstinences from writing all love of
pouring out his ideas in ink. He says
that the manuscript on which he has
lately been engaged, will be the only
writing he will ever do in regard to the
Emin relief expedition. So "In Darkest
Africa" is the only work that can claim
to be Stanley's full account of tbe great
march to Albert Nyanza.
The Harrison Hot Springs hotel gets
the following free "ad" in an eastern
paper: The keeper of a romantic resort
on Harrison Lake, near Agassis, B. C,
has adopted a plan of pleasing his patrons which, if not perhaps altogether
novel, at least indicates the possession
of a mind more capable of rifling above
conventionalities. Instead of tho usual
A and Band 1, 2, 3 which designate
hotel rooms, his apartments are labelled
Boston, Philadelphia, New York, etc.
or Paris Vienna, London, etc. If a
visitor from the United States arrives
he iB quartered, if possible, in a room
whose name appeals to his love of
country. - The European names, of
course, please tho fancy of others. It
only wants the rooms to be painted
with scenery to correspond to their
names, after the cyclorama, and "Boston" to have a few loose copies of Parker
and Emerson around to make the hotel
man celebrated and the guests rapturous. What to do with "Chicago" might
be a puzzle. A pitcher of dirty water
to represent tbe river, a pepper and salt
wall paper to represent the smoky atmosphere, and a picture of the coming
'world's fair" would probably make
the Chicagoan feel at home.

inanding an unsurpassed view of the Fraser River in one direction, and -Queen's Park and the upper portion of the City in the
other. This property is only about ono quarter of a mile from
the Brunette Mills, and is the best locality in Sapperton either for

Western Addition.
. A few blocks and lots in the "Western Addition to the City of New Westminster, Sub-Division of Lot 172, formerly the White Estate.
This sub-division, consisting of 600 lots, was placed upon the
market by us a short time ago, and so eager were purchasers to
buy that tho entire 600 lots were sold out within one month. We
are now offering the above property at slightly advanced rates on
behalf of former purchasers. Those who missed the chance of
buying at first prices have yet an opportunity of investing at
prices that cannot fail to yield a good profit. We bolieve that
this is the host speculative property in the City of New Westmin
ster.
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 the Clover
Valley Road, within 500 yards of the 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 sec
tions of the District of New Westminster, and is at present enjoy
ing quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this prep
crty will get the value of their money in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at the same time promises an excellent

NORTH  ARM.
146 acres in Lot 166, near the North Arm Road,
about 21-2 miles -vest of the New Westminster City
Post-office, at $160 per aore.
This is fine fertile soil, chiefly prairie, and lies well. It
has become a maxim that cities grow westward, and New West
minster ip 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 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 tho best suburban seotion
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expected by many that
the route of the Electrio 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 the
North Arm is looked upon as one of the best places for investment in the District.   Prices aro bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of
Oity and Suburban Property, at moderate prices and
on favorable terms, of whioh we invite examination,

At thought of me repress no note of mirth,
No burst ot gladness.

A WONDERFUL SNOW-PLOW.
Den.rlpt.oi. or the Machine Which Raised
the Oregon Blockade.
That particular machine which has
worked a revolution in the theory of snow-
plow building, and which broke, up the
great snow blockade on the Union Pacific
tracks in Oregon ia the Jull centrifugal
snow excavator-an Invention only a
year old. Tho first machine of this kind
over built was tried for the first time on
Maroh 6,1880, on the Rome, Watertown
A Ogdensburg railroad at Oswego. At
that point tho tracks of the road were
covered for a distance of 750 feet with
hard, frozen snow, which had lain there
all winter, to the depth of from two to
seven feet The Jull machine made its
initial bow to this mass, and went
through It like a ahot.
The Union Pacific railroad bought the
machine after two other sucoesBful
tests of Its power bud boen mado and
sent it to Omaha on its Kansas division.
There it laid unused until tbe blockado
on the short lino last January baffled
iho attempts of the company's othor
plows, and then it was sent thero to seo
what it oould do. It arrived at Baker
City—one end of tho blockade—on January 18, and at. once began work on the
great mass, of snow that blocked tho
tracks-from that placo-to La Grande.
Other plows had been at work on the
thing, but had failed to do any good.
Tho Jull machine started In and went
steadily on, going through tho snow
with two powerful engines behind it at
the rate of about eight miles an hour.
Ou January 30 tho machine cut its way
through to La Grande and the blockado
was at an end.
Mr. Orange Jull, who invented tbe
first rotary or Leslie snow-plow, is the
inventor of this machine. It is about
fifty feet long without tho tender,
whioh Ib a littlo smaller than those
usod on ordinary locomotives. A
boiler containing 220 two-inch flues,
und having a capacity of HOO-horse
power, furnished steam for tbo engines
which work tho excavator. On tbo front
■of tho machino is tho excavator which
porforms tho work. It presonts .titling
idgosof hoavy steel plate on ihe sides
..lid bottom, while in tho contcr is tho
ooutrffugal spheroid, roscmbliug, nearer than any thing olso, a huge auger—
S feet wide at the base, and tapering
down to a point, with tho apex on ono
side, while tho base extends from sido
to side. This "cone," as it is called, is
fitted with wings or curved blades of
steel, 2 feotwldo at the base and tapering to the apex. Tho width of tho machine or the spaces it clears over all is
just 11 foot. Its weight Is 05 tons, and
every thing about it is of tho most sub*
.tantial build. The machinery is very
heavy, and, when running at full spood,
'no engines revolve .130 times a minute,
while the "cone" makes 800 revolutions.
It is fitted with WestinghouBO air
brakes.
The now machine works upon an en-
tiro different principle from tho old
rotary plow, oxcept In this, tbat tbo
end of both plows Is to genorate a high
contrlfugal force In the snow by tho exertion of great power, and throw it out
in a solid stream to a considerable distance from tho track. Tho original
rotary separates this process into two
parts, however—knives to cut the snow
nid throw it backward on the fans, and
ii fan-wheel used purely to generate
contrlfugal force. The new centrifugal plow combines these two
processes in one; the front of the plow
is entirely open, and in a square box
works—entirely oxpoBed to view and to
contact with the snow—the Immense
oblique gimlet-pointed augur, revolving
at high velocity, which, by the same op-
oration, catches tbo snow in situ after
tho lower plate has cut under it, pushes
it rapidly backward, and bo cuts it
apart, and at the same time gradually
generates the required centrifugal
force. Tho screw always turns in the
same direction, and tho direction of tbe
ot of the discharge is regulated merely
jy the openings in the top case.
The cone itself is a very heavy affair,
weighing alone some six tons. It is
built entirely of ftvo-eighth-inch Btoel,
eight feet in diameter at tbe base, and
consists entirely of warped surfaces for
which formers had to be made. The interior ot the blades are of somewhat less
than semi-circular section, and they are
reinforced on the outaido by a quadrant
brace plate, Also of flve-oighth-inch
steel, giving the section of the blade an
inverted Y form, except tbat tbe lines
are curved, and not straight The blades
are two feet deep at the base, tapering
down to almost nothing at the point—

A Lawyer on Patent Law.
There Is money in that branch of the
law which appertains to patents. I havo
sometimes wished I had gone into that
branch of the law.   When I was  In
Washington last and in faot overy time
1 go there, I go over to the Patent Offlco
nd roam around, never tiring.   Tbe
first patent ever granted by thiB Gov
mentowas issued by James Madison,
Secretary of State under George Washington.   It waB issued July 8,1790, to
Samuel Hopkins "for making pot and
poarl ashes."  The second granted was
to a man whose name I can not recall,
but it waa a permit, so to speak, to man*
ifaeture candles.   The patent system
1 this Government Is the most compre*
tensive in the world.   Every thing has
. patent on It nowadays or has a patent
pplied for.   I asked one of tbe officials
tbe Patent .Office whioh State had
ie largest number ot patents.    Iio
,id Indiana.   I afterwards learned tbat
ie official camo from Indiana, and that
ay have prompted the reply.—Chicago
Ibune.	
About Magnetic Needles.
k ourlousfact is given by a manufact*
•r ot magnetic needles.   He says: "A
w years ago we made an experiment
this way.   We had prepared a largo
mber of magnetic neodles, all mado
>m the same plate of steol, all made
ono man, our best workman, [and aB
larly alike as possible.   Tbey wero all
led on the same center, and the read
gsdiffered,"he Bald,  "byfromnoth
g to a whole degree.   We consider
ie difficulty insuperable."   Now the
uostion Is whether or not this error, if
be an error, or disagreement of tbe
leodles, is caused by Imperfection in tho
manufacture, or is lt somo principle in
magnetism that wo do not understand?

Our beautiful 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 the 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

A' "Columbian"  Representative   Interviews Mayor Brown on the Burning
Civic Questions of the Hour.
Owing to the general anxiety of the
public for information ai to the steps being taken by the Council with respect to
the important queationa of railway, bridge
or ferry, and city improvements, still
pending, a representative of Tub Columbian waited on Mayor Brown this morning and elicited the following pretty
j lucid and satisfactory statement aB to
the policy and intentions of himself and
the Council on the questions touched
upon.
" People are inquiring," began Thk
Columbian representative, "if it is the
intention of the Council to borrow the
$80,000 called for by the loan by-law now
before the ratepayers, or to take the
same amount from the $150,000refunded
railway subsidy?"
"That," said Mnyojr Brown, "is for
the ratepayers to say. My own idea or
policy is to take tbe money from tbe
returned railway subsidy, and I believe
thnt is the policy of tlie majority of tbe
Council."
" Will the vote be taken on the loan
by-law?" noxt inquired the inquisitive
scribe.
"Yes," replied Hia Worship, " it is
necessary to pnss that by-law, because
we cannot begin to expend the money
until it Ib voted, and it will be six weeks
before we can get a vote ou a new bylaw to authorize us to take the money
from the returned subsidy."
' Then, you nre in n hurry to get the
money," insinuated tlie newspaper
man.
"Not exactly," replied the Mayor,
"but what we want is authority to expend tlie money; if we wait six weeks
for that, we would lose a montli at least

The water is still very low in the river,
but it has risen perceptibly during the
last 24 hours. This is thought to bo due
to the heavy rains of the past fow days.
Salmon and oolachans wore both
scarce to-day. Fishing for tlie latter
has been so unprofitable that two of the
three nets have been withdrawn, pending a more satisfactory run.
The river presented a busier appearance than usual to-day, probably owing
to the increased number of boats engaged in tho fishing business since Ewen b
cannery commenced operations.

Chilliwack lust night with u full curgo
of farm produce. Sbe left again for up

ure welcome to take a baud in tbe fun.
The Jtihllee Singers.
One of the characteristic concerts of
the Fisk Jubilee Singers opened the
week at this temple of amusement and
the company sang to a packed house.
The peculiar, weird style of singing prevalent among the Southern colored folk
iu tire ante helium days, was splendidly
illustrated by these natural vocalists,
and every selection met with spontaneous aud well deserved applause. The
concert, to those who had never heard
them, was n revelation, und to those
who had listened to the melodious
strains in the cotton fields or among tbe
cane brakes, it camo like an echo of far
off days.—Oregonian, April 6th,
Tlie Latest In Strikes.
Strikes in all trades have been recorded from time to time, but the idea of a
jury striking for their wages was probably never thought of until yesterday,
at the county court, Vancouver. Tlie
intelligent jury after sitting patiently on
the case and bringing in the verdict,
became alarmed lor their fees ana
"struck work." But thoy hod given
their verdict and their usefulness was
gone and consequently the court could
very well have allowed them to remain
on strike until doomsday had it so
wished. Judge Bote, however, explained
to the jurymen that the court would see
that the fees were lmid at the proper
time aud place. Thus reassured the
striker retired morn than pleased with
tbe judge's verdict.

Vancouver County Court.
Judge Bole has just returned from
Vancouver where lie has been holding
county court all the week, having disposed of over sixty cases, many of
which wero of considerable importance.
A special session of the court will be
held next Tuesday to clear off a few remaining cases. The want of a proper
court house is much felt, us although
the mayor and council have carried out
all the suggestions of the judge in the
way of improving the place, still the
building Ib entirely too small, aud has no
accommodation for tbe officials, jurors
und witnesses. It is noticed with nlea-
sure that the judge has expressed himself as being strongly opposed to the
practice of summoning a large number
of witnesses to prove facts about which
there is no dispute, thus adding needlessly to the expenses of litigators and
often bringing people away from their
business without just cause. Judge
Bolo also announced his intention of
disallowing tho costs und expenses of
all unnecessary witnesses bo that the expense of bringing them would fall on
the party summoning them,

of the working season, aud our work, of
course, wouloTiiot bo  bo  wull  done,
not onfy would part of the season be
gone, but a number of working men
would probably have drifted away to
other places."
"Then, if this by-law iB passed, you
would go on with the work at once?"
"Yes; we will have four or five contracts (London Btreet, parts of North
Arm road, and Thorn road, and probably Borne work at Sapperton, near the
cemetery) ready to let immediately the
by-law is passed," said the Mayor.
"Well, will you Ibbiic debentures
under the by-law?"
"As Boon as possible," replied Mayor
Brown, "we will put before the people
another by-law authorizing the Council
to convert the railway bonus and use
tho money for ferry, possibly, also, some
of it for public market, and perhaps for
the Lulu Island bridge, and, say, $82,-
000 for tho purposes Bet forth in the street
improvement loan by-law. to be expended under the exact conditions and restrictions of that by-law."
"Why $82,000, when the by-law only
calls for $80,000?" queried the interviewer.
"If you examine the by-law," explained His Worship, "you will see that we
calculate on a premium of about $2,000,
and, of course, this must be made good;
if we borrow thin money from ourselves,
we will have to pay ourselves the pre
inium."
"Then you think it necessary to pass
the loan by-law?"
"Yes; most of the cost involved in
passing it has been incurred already,nml
the saving of a month in the working
season is well worth the Blight extra expense still necessary."
" Do you anticipate any opposition at
all to taking the $80,000 from the railway
money?"
"I believe," answered tbo Mayor,
" that some advocate keeping the railway subsidy as a nest egg, so to speak
for the bridge building fund."
" How is the question to be decided?'
"By the ratepayers, of course; tbe
money can not be touched for any pur
pose without a by-law; so that tho ratepayers, by their votes on the by-law.
will decide how it is to be appropriated."
"What is your policy with regard to
the 'bridge?" asked Thk Columbian'
mun, opening up a new question.
"Mypolicy," replied Mayor Brown,
" is to put ou nn efficient ferry, good
enough to afford satisfactory communication with Surrey; and then to appropriate $1,000, or thereabouts, to defray
the expenses of taking the necessary
soundings, etc.; in fact, of getting up
complete plans, specifications, and estimates for the bridge; in a word, to go
thoroughly and deliberately into the
question, so that we will know just what
we are doing before undertaking a work
of that magnitude. Then, to approach
both the Dominion and Provincial Governments on the question of subsidy, as
the work is a Provincial, not merely a
local one, and fully as much entitled to
a subsidy as any ordinary railway."
"And in the meantime?"
"In the meantime use the funds in
hand to develop local resources, improve
the City, and put ourselves in flrst-class
position to stand a bridge loan when we
require to make one," replied Mayor
Brown.
"What about the railway?" persisted
the insatiable ink destroyer.
"The general impression seems to be,
said the Mayor "that we will make the
railway entirely welcolme provided it
does not cost us anything to speak of."
"How soon do you expect to be able
to submit the whole question to the
ratepayers?" was the Parthian shot of
the quill-driver, as he stood with hiB
hand on the door.
"It is scarcely possible to say exactly,'
replied the Mayor, cautiously, "but we
hope to do so within three weeks at
furthest," ^^^^^^^^^
Some Heal Kitate Sales.
Heal estate has been Belling very
freely during the past few days, and the
dealers have been kept busy closing
transactions. The opinion so freely expressed a few weeks ago that real estate
was going to fall flat and not regain
activity this summer, has not proved
correct, and thoso who are in the best
position to judg < uj these things have
abundant confidence that Westminster
is only on the eve of Its greatest prosperity. Since the beginning of tlie present week Messrs. Rand Bros, have
made the following sales: 154 acres out-
Bide tho City limits, $15,400; lots 45 aud
47, suburban, block 6, $0,000: 33 feet
on Columbia street, between McKenzie
and Lorn streets, $15,000; lot 2, block
4, Sapperton, $4,400; 28 lots in the
Milton estate, $7,000, and a few smaller
sales. Messrs. Major A Pearson's tales
have aggregated $51,000 during the
week. Messrs. Mowat A Sloan have
disposed of 30 City lots and several
blocks at Brownsville; Messrs. F. J,
Coulthard A Co. sold 30 lots aggregating
a large sum. Messrs. Woods, Turner &
Gamble Bold $10,000 worth of City property, and several valuable district lots.
Messrs. S. T. Mackintosh A Co. have
had a fairly busy week. Thoir Bales
have been largo both in City and district property, aggregating for the week
about $22,000. Thus it will bo seen that
real estate is going ahead, and that the
demand for Westminster property is
continually on the increase.

Polio* Hatters.
The slumbering echoes of the lockup
corridom were very rudely awakened
late Inst night by a man named Alex,
Robb, who was taken to the station in a
very drunk and somowhat boisterous
condition. The echoes that had lain
dormant so long were Boon tossing from
wall to wall a very drunken and incoherent rendition of "we're jolly good fellows," which song Mr, Robb rendered
throughout the eniire night, disturbing
Constable Smith's usually peaceful rest
by tbe strange and wonderful variations
introduced in the music. At the pollco
court he sung another tune. He only
arrived from Vancouver yesterday and
had the misfortune to become intoxicated wit bin a very short space of time.
His intentions were good, and the same
trouble would never occur again if the
present offence was overlooked, The
magistrate overlooked the offence, but
advised Robb to leave town forthwith or V
ho might be obliged to remain for at
least 0 months.   He left.
Louis, a Chinaman who has served a
great many terms in the provincial gaol,
and who is known to be one of the most
notorious Indian whisky peddlers in the
city, wus gathered in last night by Constable Dominy and charged with vagrancy. The Celestrial protested strongly against the charge, but was unable to
prove that he was posessed of sufficient
wealth to exist without labor, and was
likewise unable to furnish proof of being
employed in any honest trade or business. As it was considered Louis would
be safer under the charge of the prison
officials than roaming at large, the magistrate sentenced him to six mouths in
gnol with hard labor.

The Mainland Association.
The meeting of the Mainland Association was held at 3,30 this afternoon, the
President, Mr. J. R..Brown, in the chair.
The minutes of tbe last meeting were
read by Mr, It. H. Alexander. There
was a large attendance of delegates.
The President explained that he had
called this meeting in accordance with
the desire of the executive that
the Association should he called
together as soon as possible
after - the redistribution bill had
been brought down in the House. That
bill had been brought down, nnd jt was
now before the meeting for discussion
and action. The president then went
through tho proposed hill und showed
how unfair were its provisions. He
thought that the endeavors of the Association should he used to have the sectionalism now prevailing removed.
This could only be done by a fair treat
ment of all districts, and hy returning
only such men to Parliament ns would
pledge themselves to work for the Province as a whole, and not for only one
portion.
Mr. Scott, of Port Moody, gavo a
long speech ou the so-called bill. Dr.
Boddington, Mr. W. B. Townsend and
others also spoke on the bill, and a committeo was formed to prepare resolutions
to be laid before a meeting to-night.
Capt. Tatlow said as far as Vancouver
was concerned that city would have
boen better pleased to nave taken its
chances as a portion of Westminster
District, thkn have two members under
such a bill as that introduced in the
House. This remark was received with
groat applause.

PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.
(FROM FIRST PA <SK..
Hon. John Robson in allowing questions
to be asked which should in strict justice, have been ruled out. And to make
such an unwarrantable onslaught ou
him (the speaker) above all persons in
the community, ub Mr. Muir had done
iu his communications to the Times was
quite beyond his comprehension.
Mr. Cunningham then entered into a
careful explanation of each item in the
report, and a considerable share
of the correspondence was read. The
inexplicable conduct of Mr. Muir in obstinately refusing to surrender Wellington school, to which he had been appointed temporarily, when the permanent lady teacher, Miss Ramsay, arrived, wus strongly commented on by
Mr. Cunningham. Such behavior was
uugallant, stupid and mean. As to the
closing of English school, Lulu Island,
not only was that act perfectly proper,
but, under the circumstances, was really au act of kndness; aud far from resulting in any detriment, was eminently
a happy measure, in that it relieved the
trustees of a mischievous teacher and i
dangerous man—Mr Muir.
In his able disquisition on the Van
couver school matter, Mr. Cunningham
said thut hud the Education Department
denied the request of the Vancouver
trustees the press undoubtedly would
have teemed with complaints of tyranny
and despotism.
Upon the famous question of the extraordinary demand made by Mr. Muir
for the cancellation of Miss Rutherford's
certificate, the honorable gentleman
warmed up to an interesting point of indignant eloquence. He graphically delineated the rather romantic details of
that little story, and told of Mr. Muirs'
entrance into the school room to take
shelter from the rain; of his mean, spying actions there, and the joy with which
he received Miss Rutherford's admission
thut, owing to the heavy rain storm,
Bhe had not called the roll of her little
charges at the usual hour that morning:
and of her proceeding to do so just before recess, nnd Mr. Muir's boasting as*
sertion to this young lady, before he
took his departure, and ub he waB signing the visitors' hook, "I have been
fighting the Government three years."
Then he went hiB way to lay his inform-
ation and try togettfiisiioororphangirl,
who had never done him nny harm,
thrown out of a situation.   Wus ever a
more despicable, dastardly, cowardly
aud cruel act done by any man? What
feelings but those of kindness and sympathy could be awakened in the heart
of a true man at the very name, orphan
girl? Mr. Muir blurted out, with a candour that certainly did him credit, that
he resented Wm Rutherford because
he thought she wub Hon. Mr. Robson's
niece. This intensifies the total depravity of tho man's action. Attempting to injure him whom he considered
to be his enemy, by letting the blowi
fall upon a defenceless orphan girl,
Such consummate villainy was disgusting to contemplate; and no man with a
particle of the love of justice in bis com-
Sosition would for a moment attempt to
efend or countenance such terrible depravity.   (Applause),
The hon. gentleman read the letter of
Miss Rutherford, which clearly exposed
the "true inwardness" of Mr. Muir's
conduct nud flatly contradicted some of
his statements.
A letter from W. C. Coatham regarding the answering of certain questions
was also road, una it also seriously upBet
some of Mr. Muir'u remarks. Aud yet
Mr. Semlin had suid that the conciliation of this man's certificate was ill-
advised.
The hon, gentleman's eloquent speech
was received with npplntiBe from both
sides of tbe House.
Mr. Croft In secoudidg this resolution
drew attention to the fact that the letter in the Times signed J, N. Mufr was
published before the report of the committee was made public. Mr. Muir had
every chance of fair play and there was
no injustice done. After considerable
discussion on the subject the report was
adopted,
Hon, Mr. Turner moved the second
reading of the Supply BUI. BUI read a
second time and committed, Col. Baker
in the chair. Committee rose and reported the bill and it was read a third
time and passed.
House went into committee on the
message of His Honor, the Lieutenant-
Governor, on the hill re payment of
moneys into and out of court, Mr. Ladner iu tbe chair. Committeo rose and
reported the message and bill to the
