Pabib, April 5.—ia Passion, n mystic
poem in six parts, by Edward Ham-
court, waa read nt Circque Dehiuer tonight by Sarah Bernhardt, Phillippe
Gardner and M. Bremcnt, Tho enormous . auditorium was crowded, and
about 4000 persons must have been present. The poem is a fiort of mystic representation of Ecce Homo. Bernhardt
read the lines exhorting Christ to fly
and save himself from torture and crucifixion with au impassioned, yet subdued force that caused profound emotion.
Shout* of "bravo," "bravo" burst fortji
wnen MVGamier read the lines of
Christ as lie drove the money changers
out of the temple. Somo of the youngsters in the gallery made a scandalous
demonstration in favor of tlie principles
adduced bv the publicans, and two or
three butcher boys yelled "hurrah for
the publicans, they are better than
our bookmakers at Long Champs." As
Mr. Gamier pronounced tlie words of
the Saviour calling little children to him
and an exhortation to charity and repentance, two or three voices shouted
"Assez de Christ, Asbcz de Christ"
(enough of Christ). The audience rose
to their feetwith excitement and cheered
and applauded the actors. Men in fashionable portions of the house
shook their fists at the butcher
boys and the men who had interrupted
ana demanded that the police should
put them out of the house. The excitement was tremenduous. Mine. Bernhardt trembled with emotion and wept.
There was perfect pandemonium. Nothing could be heard until Mr. Haracourt
the author, bounded down to the platform where the actors weie seated and
shook them all warmly by the hand,
and facing the tempestuous audience
shouted with stentorian voice: "Tlie
actors will pause a few moments to enable those persons who are discontented
to retire." Mr. Haracourt was cheered
loudly, with Bhoutsof "bravo." Then
by the aid of the police some thirty or
forty of the discontented left the circus.
ThiB agitating scene had now lasted half
an hour. Bernhardt and her fellow
actors were pale and nervous, but the
audience with the stormy element now
eliminated shouted "continue." Thon
the second reading wns commenced
again and was diservedly applauded.
When the reading of tho poem ended,
the applause was long and loud, and M.
Haracourt was called out and bowed
his acknowledgement, Tho correspond-
out met Sara Bernhardt in tho lobby as
she was leaving the cirque. She was
rather nervouB but iB more eager than
ever to interpret La Passion with all
costumes ana requisite scenery.
Miss Ellen Terry, who Iiob been staying in Paris about a week, was interviewed to-day. Among the questions
was asked "What do you think of Bern-
hardt's Virgin Mary?" "I think Sara
Bernhardt the greatest actress living,
and I don't know anything about the
Virgin Mary; therewlll thatdo?" "But
about Sarah Bemhardt's idea of impersonating the Virgin in theatrical representation, do you believe that such
sacred subjects should be put upon the
stage?" "I believe in putting anything
on the stage" was the emphatic reply.
"You cannot imagine how disappointed I
am not to be able to stay to see Sara in her
new creation to-night, Unfortunately
I have an important engagement for tomorrow in London, so I must lenve
Paris to-day."
A War Balloon.
Behlin, April 5.—Edward Dainm, of
the United States army, is making n
sensation here by an exhibition of a
monster balloon for war purposes. The
balloon is called "The Bismarck," it is
lighted by electricity and is capable of
signalling at a tremenduous distance.
The machine will, it is said, be adoptod
in the German army.
Wonderful Praatlcei.
London, April 5.—Sixty eminent phy-
siclauB and dental surgeons conducted
Bome very remarkable hypnotic experiments in Berlin lu the case of a girl
whose tonsils were removed by an absolutely painless operation. During the
state of coma tlie patient obeyed the
slightest suggestions of the hypnotizer.
Another patient was hypnotized by letter, in the absence of the operator,
written to a Burgeon named Turner, and
worded thus: "Go to sleep by order of
Dr. Bramwell. Obey Mr. Turner's command." Dr. Bramwell also hypnotized
another patient by a note sent by the
hands of hiB daughter, and still another
by a message sent by telegraph. These
statements are vouched for by the London lancet,
Mr. lti.ftl.wi'* Little Joke.
Nbw Yobk, April 6,—A special to tho
Herald from Chicago Bays: Mr. Arthur
Raglan, grandson of Lord Raglan, of
Crimean fame, who iB an equestrian
authority, says that the sidesaddle is
doomed in London. He Bald to-duy,
"Nearly all our advanced lady riders
have adopted masculine stylo of saddles
and bifurcated skirts. Thoy gallop about
Hyde Park like amnzons, There was
only ono woman in NewYork who dared
to follow the example, but before the
season is over she will have many followers in that too-nice city of New York.
The Great lloomer Shot.
Oklahoma!! Citv, April 5.-Capt. W. L,
Couch, leader of the Oklahoma boomers,
and Ex-Mayor of Oklahoma City, was shot
this afternoon by J. 0. Adams. The
bullet entered the left leg just below the
knee and came out in front, Both bones
were broken, and although amputation
may not be necessary, Capt. Couch will
be crippled for life. Capt. Couch was a
contestant for a valuable claim adjoining the oity on the west, on which Adams
has the filing. This afternoon Couch
and his son began to sot posts for a fence
and Adams ordered them to stop. A
quarrel ensued and shooting followed.
There are two or three versions of the
shooting, but the one that seems to have
a color of truth iB that Couch took hold
of Adams, disarmed him of his pistol
nnd discharged It at him. Adams retreated to his house procured his Winchester and advancing to within 200
yards of Couch fired at him. Adams
then swore out a warrant for the arrest
of Couch nnd his son, while on behalf of
Couch a warrant waa sworn out for
Adams' arrest.   Adnms gave $1,000 bail,

London, April 4.—The adsolute secrecy
observed by the authorities at St.
Petersburg in regard to the condition of
the Czar has left the way clear for a
flood of rumors of the most diversified,
and in moat cases, the most improbable
character. Not only is secrecy maintained in the matter of permitting reports to go abroad, but the same degree
of popular ignorance concerning His
Majesty prevails in St. Petersburg*
where the people ure even forbidden to
in public speculate on the subject. It
iB permitted to be known, however, that
intense excitement exists in the Hub-
sian capital and that it iB on the increase.
Tlie closing of the universities lias
swelled the popular discontent by the
realization that such an action has practically ruined tlie future careers of
thousands of young men who, by the
deprivation of the ensuing years' courso
in that institution from which thoy arc
debarred, they will be compelled to devote themselves to other pursuits, if, indeed, their enforced leisure docs not
lead them into dangerous paths. Discontent on this account lias spread
among hundreds of thousands who
would otherwise be content to let things
drift along in tlie old way. As if to
divert popular opinion from the unsettled state of affairs at home, the
Novoe Vremya urges that more attention
should be paid by tho Government to
offices in Afghanistan and India and
warns the Government to beware of
British intrigues in the former territory,
which it believes are already in progress.
The French In Ontario.
Toronto, April 4.—The Ontario Legislature wns in session until 0 o'clock this
morning, endeavoring to clear off all the
business before the House. The bill
providing for the abolition of French in
the schools was voted flown by a vote of
50 to 80. Several want of confidence
motions wore also voted down, including
one by Mr. Balfour (South Essex), who
intimated that he would not again be a
Government candidate. The House will
not meet again till Monday, when prorogation takes place.
SOME HINDRANCES TO RELIGIOUS
GROWTH.
[Kcprlnteil, by reqtieHt, from tlio Presbyterian
Review;}
In old settled communities—especially
in towns and cities—God's people nre
often troubled nnd perplexed nt the
Binall signs of religious growtli in their
midst. They have fine ljbuses of worship, able and learned ministers, attractive music, regular services, and yet,
by sheer growth of population, the congregation does not increase. The feast
is made ready but the people remain
outside, and despite all allurements tbey
will not be compelled to come in. Every
Sabbath a great number of the old, the
middle aged and the young, who might
be in God's house within the sound of
His glorious Gospel, drift by the church
door or stagnate at home. In all our
towns and cities there ia much unoccupied room, while outside there are
hundreds, yea thousands, of persons who
never enter a church door. How, why
is thiB? The reason cannot be that the
Btory of redeeming love is any less nttrnc-
tive to burdened sinners than ever
before. It is not that. Nor iu any
changed conditions of the Gospel of salvation nnd of eternal death.
The chief cause of empty' churches
and atrophied, inert congregations is in
the congregations themselves. According to the testimony of tho most
spiritually-minded members iu congregations and that of representatives of
the great throng without, what are tlie
causes which prevent natural growth?
Dealing with causes that may be described under the head, internal, they place
first, extravagance iu church and, social
life,—extravagance which leads to the
building of magnificent structures beyond the means und needs of congregations und imposing upon them burdens
too grievous to bo borne. The development of musical taste, from association
with the world of the opora or concert,
leads to the demand of an artistic service of praise in the church. Hence
arise paid choirs und performers, who
for six doya in tlie week may appear on
the boards of a theatre or concert hall
and the seventh in tlie choir of a fashionable church. Now, against comfortable
well-appointed places of worship, and
well-ordered service of praise in which
the congregation can join, nothing can
be said; but it is undeniable that the
growth of wealth and luxury in modem
communities creates a condition of
tilings in many churches that frighten
away rather than attract the people who
have most need to be brought within
the sound of the Gospel. There iB the
greatest possible danger in well-to-do
congregations that the church may become only a fnshionnble club, una the
minister and the session mere masters
of ceremonies. In such circumstances
the poor in this world's goods, and those
who have no interest in religious things,
dread the burden of church debt nnd the
inevitable dun for money.
Again, it Ib said that in order to make
the church nttrnctive to young people,
the spiritual element must be kept iu
tlie background nnd the social and the
intellectual side of congregational life
be cultivated. Hence literary societies,
"neck-tie" uncials, "broom drillB," debates, entertainments, and other such
things, until the vory place that was
designed to be a house of prayer become* a veritable theatre of amusement. The church becomes u place
In which to have "a good time." Is it
to be wondered ut that the good seed
sown in this way is trodden down und
devoured up by the fowls-of the air?
Ib thero not, as Dr. Buckley asked at
the late meeting of the American Evangelical Alliance, a great need of some
means of preserving tlie nttrnctivoness
of the church to the young, while a holy
life aud spirituality of character are kept
in the foreground? We may rest assured that the churches will not be
filled with spiritually-minded worshippers until spiritual matters become the
chief concern of the congregations.
Let ub not bo deceived. God is not
mocked.
There Ib in many quarters in all the
evangelical churches, as the same
sneaker pointed out, a decline and un
almost total disappearance of discipline.
The' expulsion of members is rare.
Men and women of openly immoral
or notoriously worldly lives, Sabbath-
breakers and profane persons, ure allowed to retain their church connection j
aud this gives the enemies of God
occasion to blaspheme. Men of wealth,
who, perhaps, have obtained their wealth
by grinding the faces of the poor, or
engaging in-some disreputable and dishonest business, are often caressed and,
flattered by the pulpit, provided thero
Ib a lavish distribution of the wealth in
the direction of the church and the
manse; and thus, fundamental truth is
corrupted. So, men and women who
see and note all this any bitterly, they
will have nothing to do with an organization that tolerates nnd fosters such n
stnte of things; and so they, too, refuse
to come in.
l'heaiAtitfl from the Orient.
A number of pheasants arrived by B,
S. Parthla for the Vancouver Gamo Association. They aro all of tho variety
commonly known to sportsmen and are
In first-rate condition. Thoy wlll bo
transferred to the Park avinries where
they will remain for a few days and will
ultimately be turned out nt a suitable
spot on the North Arm, chosen by the
committee. It is to be hoped that everyone will assist the association in the object for which it is working, nnd that
tho birds will be rigorously preserved,
Another consignment of pheasants will'
shortly arrive, but will be placed In another locality. It Ib also the intention
of the association to turn out a large
number of quail next fall.—World.

GOOD FRIDAY.
A Lovely   Day—Lively Laflrowe—ltell
kIouh Services—A Good Time
Generally.
Captain Peele's ominous prophecy
about rain for Good Friday came very
near failing to connect. In the early
hours of the morning there was a slight
full of rain, followed almost immediately
by n hard frost. Tliisextraordinary circumstance has puzzled the weather-wise
not a little. On tho pools and ponds
there was about a quarter of an inch of
clear ice. The rain-fall amounted to
only lBOOths of an inch. The next item
on the day's programme was, of course,
the hot-cross bun. This annual toothsome little stranger was not allowed to
linger long in the cold blast, and it was
takon inside numerously.
As the day advanced the weather
became more and more pleasant until
the afternoon was readied, when it wns
all that could possibly be desired. Columbia and l'lont Streets presented
rather a Sunday aspect, but thero were
many proinenaders.
LACROSSR    FOR   EVERYBODY.
A good many people went up to the
Queen's Park m the afternoon to witness the lacrosse game. If numbersand
enthusiasm count for anything, tlie
lacrosse season was commenced auspiciously. Everybody who possessed a
lacrosse was welcome to play. The
number engaged was iu the neighborhood of fifty, and when they were ranged
out ready to begin piny they stretched
from goal to goal iu pretty oloso order.
Messrs. J. 0. Whyte and W. Corbett
efficiently looked after the interests of
tlie respective goals and did some pretty
work when the whooping horde swooped
down upon them in pursuit of the ball.
The costumes of the players were varied
in tho extreme. The juvenile in store-
clothes and stiff hat did manful
battle by the side of the trim looking
athlete in orthodox lacrosse costume.
It was a game with many laughs and a
good many hard raps and falls for both
the veteran and the verdant. It wns
truly amusing to geo two small boys
running with the ball the one holding
the covettcd sphere on his lacrosse nnd
the other making frantic sweeps with
Ids to knock the ball off the not. most of
his blows fulling ou the shoulders and
head of the unlucky wight in front.
Then again it was a fine sight to watch
such players as Campbell, Lewis, Mae-
Gregor, Ityal, Steunrt, Ketchum, McMartin or Whyte (they were all there)
lift the ball and by infinite generalship
and a perfect paroxysm of dodging run
through the field for an extraordinary
distance and then calmly puss the bull
to some comrade nearer the enemy's
goal, to the discomfiture and comical astonishment of the pursuing multitude of
uninitiated. Sometimes the game degenerated, as might have been expected
where so many new men took part, iuto
a give and take scrimmage, and at those
times the air was filled with whirling lacrosses, bobbing bonds, laughter and a
mlldspecicfl of profanity. In spite of
this heavy the nt close range, the casualties were few and trilling. An unlucky
blow from a lacrosse caught Sir. Fred
Turner on tho left temple and cut him
slightly, causing the blood to How. A
visit to the pump soon set his injuries
right. Another lacrosse wus describing
a beautiful curve in the air, and wus
getting along first-rate when the fine
well-balanced head of Cowan Grant interrupted the thread of the said description in a manner that deprived that
young gentleman of about a square inch
of scalp, including the fur. The samo
area of sticking plaster now conceals
Mr. Grant's cranium from tho public
gaze, but he will Juubq_JP let his hair
grow tufty on that section of his head
if he wants to travel through this life
above the imputation of Doing bald-
headed. Several other gentlemen got
resounding thumps ou Ihe shins; but,
taken all through, there was more fun
nnd thorongh enjoyment, both for spectators and players, iu this match than
bus been the ense in any game hold
here in a long time.
But lacrosse did not monopolise the
attention of the attendant public, for
down the track a little distance about
twenty of tho junior football club were
kicking the leather around with the ut-
moBt energy. Sides were finally chosen
and a very good game was played. It
seeniB unfortunate that the athletic
clubs Bhould not be able to realize a
little modey out of these exhibitions of
skill.
liEFOHK TUB ALTARS.
Solemn nnd impressive services wero
held in the Anglican nud Roman Catholic churches. These services were very
well attended, nnd continued throughout the greater part of the day. In tho
evening n resumption of religious worship in tlie edifices above named took
place, and tbey nlao wero well attended.
Special choral services suitable to the
occasion were included in tlie  worship,
OUK BOULEVARD.
The beauty of tho evening wns such
thut the Sapperton Promenade was
liberally sprinkled with those who delight to wander by the Eraser's classic
banks when the moon is high and tho
night serene. Few cities on the coast
aro so fortunate us to be in the possession of such a prospect ns that which
may be witnessed nny tine moonlight
night from tho Sapperton Road.
TDK  HIVES OF INDUSTRY,
The mills ran all day and, as usual, nt
high pressure. Business is businoss,
nnd, although tho rosL of the town can
rest off for a day, these great institutions, tlie pride of our City, must ns
a rule keep on their censeless throb of
labor until the six o'clock boll on Saturday night gives warning of the approach
of Sabbath.
BEULAH  VIA   VANITY FAIR.
Tho Salvation Army turned out u full
company last night. Headed by the
regimontnlband, consisting of five pieces,
and the colors of the corps, the detachment deployed into line nud breaking
into quarter column advanced en echelon,
or something, to the attack of Columbia
and Mary streets. A speeiul Good Fri-
dny evening service wns held In this redoubt of the devil und a fierce battle
wub waged for over throe quarters of an
hour. The rout of the evening was accomplished when the collection was
taken up. Stirring tales have beon told
of vast mobs being shattered nnd completely broken up by offering tho small
and meek looking collection plate around,
but when it comes to taking up n collection on a brasB drum no words can describe the gait at which tho crowd "gits"
from that locality.
Editok Columbian,—$.r,—I wish to
take advantage of your offer of free discussion, in your columns for the Frnser
River traffic bridge. In the first place,
I am sorry to suy there has been no
mention of the Westminster Council,
or Board of Trade, interesting themselves about the building of the said
bridge, not even to ask either the Dominion or Provincial Governments to
give assistance towards the building of
a bridge; nnd no more opportune time
could occur, as both Houses seem to be
in a prosperous state, and both on the
eve of a general election. If it is the intention of the City.to build a traffic
bridge, would it not be a good idea for
the Council, to offer say (1000 premium for the most suitable plan, and
cost of a bridge of any material, either
timber, stone, iron or steel or combined
piers, and iron or steel structure, Of
course the depth of the river would have
to be mentioned, also the elevation of
tlie bridge and approaches; the current
of river and formation of the soil at the
bottom of the* river, to give an opportunity of draughting suitably, so as to
insure a good foundation for the bridgo.
If in advertising for thiB, mention of the
building of the water works, and other
improvements, were given at the same
time, it would be a good opportunity to
advertise Westminster City, and It
might be the means of not only bringing capitalists, but industries into our
midst, at the same time it would give the
citizens an idea of the cost of a bridge.
The raising of funds for flame could ue
takou into consideration afterwards..
Traffic Bridge.
CORRESPONDENCE.
THAT  FKHKV   II1.M1NKHB.
Editor Columbian.—Sir—The Municipal Council of West miiwtev la in n rather
perplexing position with regnrd to the
choice between a forrv und u bridge.
With regard to a bridge—if ever there la
a bridge built ucross the Frusor ut Westminster, by the Council, with or without any outside aid—it should be built so
that steamers and all water craft could
pass under it. A low drawbridge would
be an expensive nuisance. A wire suspension is the only thing suitable, and
besides, it is the least costly to build
Nature, or, perhaps, I might say Providence, has fixed tho site. The old gun
battery on the bluff in front of tho
Crescent is au admirable site for a suspension bridge—the narrowest part of
the river—where the sand bur on the
south side has forced the deep cbannol
clone up lo the north bank, where tho
"Royal George" might have floated at
pleasure. There would be only one expensive abutment in the river, which
would terminate the first span from tlie
north bank; after thut the river gets
shallower and shallower, until the south
bank is reached. The road bed would
be ou a slight incline, and for all purposes other than a railroad such a bridge
need not be very expensive. If the
Municipal Council nre business men,
they will take steps to ascertain what
such a bridge would cost, but I would
caution them to look sharply out against
bogus engineers, Iu the meantime, u
suitable ferry boat might be put on in
order to retain the trade of the southern
districts. Go-Ahead.

A TRAFFIC HKIDGK.
TUB It I tl Of! E QUESTION.
Editor Columbian—Sir: Your article
"Wanted at Once"—in Thk Columbian of the 2nd inst. waB timely aud to
the point. I hope that the question of
Bridge vs. Ferry," will not he allowed
to drop before a wise decision has been
readied in tlie matter. Each scheme
has advantages peculiar to itself. The
supposed cost ota bridge haB led many
to consider that the immediate construction of one was beyond our resources.
In this I behove them to be mistaken.
That it is the duty of the Governments, Dominion and Provincial, to provide for bridging the Fraser nt this point,
is undeniable; but so also is the fact
that for New Westminster, at the present
juncture of affairs, to wait for the manipulation of the red tape that is necessary in order to overcome tho inertia of
tho Governments, would be imbecile,
if not criminal.
Let the City take immediate action iu
the matter und then call upon Hercules.
The Gods help those who help themselves. It is quite within the limit of
the City's ability to build a good, substantial bridge. Let specifications with
cost, be called for immediately, and
many will be astonished at the result,
nud wonder why such a patent factor to
our prosperity hnd not long ago been
secured.
Let railway matters rest for the pro-
sent, until after the moro important
matter of a bridge is disposed of; let us
husband our resources; to give what the
railway demand would be madness, and
to give* half of it would bo folly. Let ub
show that we nre equal to the occasion
and have a bridge spanning the river
between this City and Brownsville,
ready for the opening ceremonies on
May Day, 1891; it can be done without
in the least eiiibnrrasing our finances.
With tho certainty of a bridge spanning the river iu the  near  future, wo
would soon huve another, and less die- '
tutorial proposal from the railway magnates,

••THE OLI1 HOSPITAL."
Editor Columbian—Str—I was treated in your lost issue to a fusilade of
abuse which could only result from
thrusts that were felt because they were
true. I sympathize with the writers
and would advise them in future not to
let their ire deprive them of reasoning
powers.
"Physician," looking for a point and
trying to avoid the main issue, forces
me into a position I never adopted.
I always disapproved of sending patients to tho old hospital.
Unless I am very much mistaken, It
was "Physician," in consultation with
mc, who strongly advised sending to St.
Mary's Hospital from the jail a badly
wounded patient. We thoroughly
agreed that the Columbian Hospital was
a most unsuitable place for him.
I think it would not bo out of place
for mo to here mention one very striking and sad case that came within my
own experience. Last January a man
was admitted to the Columbian Hospital,
with a Blight cut on the enp of his knee.
He wns aged about 40, and in good
health. The wound was dressed and
tho patient placed in a ward in the wing
now certified tons practically safe, That
wound nevor healed and tlio patient
died of blood poisoning. I, with another
doctor, attended him, nut I vowed never
to look after oven a pin scratch In that
institution again.
"Physician" denies what he was never
asked to accopt. I expressed no dogma.
I simply criticised a report.
With regard to Dr. McLoau's letter
there is nothing to answer. In paragraph one he acts the Great Mogul. In
following paragraphs he administers
patronizing banter.
He, like "Physician," altogether
avoids tho subject matter. Perhaps it
is the wiser position.
The fact that the hospital required
the fumigation Mr. Herring mentions is
strong proof of its being unfitted for
habitation.
Yours, etc.

Notwithstanding the unpromising outlook of the salmon market and the fact
that a big puck' in Alaska may knock
tho bottom out of the whole market, six
new canneries are going up In British
Columbia this year. One of these is on
the Skeena, one ou Gardener's Inlet, one
nt Rivers Inlet, one nt Bute Inlet, nnd
probably two on the Fraser. The canneries at Gardener's and Bute inlets
are experimental, none having been
operated there beforo. The one on
Gardener's Inlet will bo situated about
80 miles from tho mouth. The one at
Bute will also bo considerably out of
tlio way of tho route of the steamers
running on the Northern route, and
although not far, away the stream appears to have nevor been thoroughly
prospected, Mr. C. Windsor and some
Vancouver men are interested in tho
cannery there.—Times.

MR. CHISHOLM, M. P.
doctor!   or
After fulfilling very nearly the allot'
ted span, Donald Chisholm, M. P.
familiarly and affectionately known to
hiB many friends for years past, aa " Oh
Doc,," lias quietly joined the majority.
As he has beeu ailing seriously for throi
or four years, aud utterly prostrated for
over a year past, his death lust night
cnn not be suid to have been unexpected
although his friends havebeeuenruestly
hoping for the best and anticipating that
tho warm, balmy weather of returning
spring would have assisted tho
nnd the unremitting care which he got
in restoring the Invalid to health. Mr.
Chisholm wns known und esteemed
throughout tho Province, where hurdly
one can bo found who does not know, at
least by reputation, tho sturdy old
pioneer. By reason of hiB striking presence, and strong individuality, as woll
as by the honest geniality ef his nature,
his large and varied experience, good
judgment, nnd honorable dealing, Mr.
Chisholm has always commanded
respect of his fellows, and those
qualities won him the regard and affection of a large circle of friends. Elected
by a popular majority at tho general
elections in 1887 to represent this district in the Dominion House of Commons,
Mr. Chisholm has made a faithful am
efficient representative, notwithstanding that his usefulness has beon mud
hindered by the unfortunate circumstance of his long nnd regretted illness.
Both throughout this Province and nt
the Federal Capital, where he made
many friends, nnd in his native Province,
Nova Scotia, Mr. Chlsholm's death will
bo sincerely lamented. An honorable,
almost universally esteemed and popular
man, with his faults, of course, a faithful and more than ordinarily able representative, an honest, rugged and generous soul—a pioneer of the pioneers,
one whose name is intimately associated
with the history of the early struggles
nnd vicisaitudos of the Province—has
pussed away, but the memory of" Doc,
Chisholm will long be held iu kindly
remembrance throughout his adopted
Province, from Cariboo to Victoria.
Peace to his ashes.
' interest at five per cent, for twenty
years, on $4,600,000 of the company's
bonds? Tlie argument that the Dominion should bear the burden of
opening the route, is a very tenable
one. Manitoba Is but a small portion
of the territory which will be benefited by the opening of the Hudson
' Bay route. The western and northern
' portions of the Territories will be
' benefited in much greater proportion
' than Manitoba. The enterprise iB
' really a national one, and though
' Manitobans are very anxious to have
' the route opened, yet it does seem un-
' just that this Province, with Its
' limited financial resources, should be
' obliged to burden itself beyond reu-
' son, to secure the building of the rail-
" way. It is to be hoped that the ex-
" pected aid from the Dominion Gov-
' eminent will be of such a nature as to
' secure the construction of the railway
' without this Province being called
' upon to so largely increase its flnan-
' cial burdens as has been at times pro-
' posed, in order to aid the enterprise."
While the people of Manitoba seem perfectly convinced that the Hudson Bay
Railway, and the sea route by way of
the grent inland ocean and Hudson
Straits, are entirely practicable and will
prove vastly beneficial to the Province
af Manitoba aud the Dominion at large,
the Dominion Government and Parliament cannot do less than take all reason-
nble steps to satisfy themselves on these
points before devoting large subsidies
guarantees of the people's money to
i scheme which, with all due deference
to the evident conviction of the people
of Manitoba, might turn out to be nearly
as insnno a project as u railway to tbe
moon,      	
the  fl
same  of
nesi
THE HUDSON BAY RAILWAY.
'ay  And I
I the   his

Mani-   Xiv\
th(
The Manitobans are enterprising people aud, what is almost a natural scqu
ence, they aro inveterate railroad projectors and constructors. A ruilw
stretching six hundred miles toward
bleak north, across muskeg und moor,
to the shores of Hudson Buy—avast
sheet of water bound in almost Arctic of
rigors for the greater number of montlu
out of the twelve—might seem an almost
impracticable, not to Bay chimerical,
enterprise to the average mind. But
the dauntless traders and producers of
the Prairie Province see great advantages in having this northern sen route
to the European niajket made available.
It is shorter and more direct, they say,
than the only present route, and they
are doubtless right in this. It will also
afford a cool passage in the summer foi
live stock and other freight that, it is
alleged, suffers injury and loss by the
more southern route. The " cool" argument is a strong point in a way, but the
great trouble is that for about two-third.
of the year the " coolness" very perceptibly materializes into icebergs and
fast-locked floes, that are not merely
inimical to, but absolutely prohibitive
of, shipping. However, with a spiri
and enterprise that must command ad'
miration, the energetic Manitobans are
determined to have their Hudson Bay
Railway, if they oan get enough Provin
clal and Dominion assistance.
The Winnipeg Commercial of a
date says that, after a groat deal of
speculation, tho position of the
toba Government toward the Hudson
Bay Railway has at last been made _f
known. The Government proposes, it
suys, to aid the railway to tlie extent of
three thousand dollars per mile, in
form of a cash bonus, for that portion of
the main lino of the railway within the
boundary of the Province, hi all not
exceed-250 miles, which, it will be seen,
will amount to $750,000. The money
may be paid on the completion and
operation of the railway to the Hudson
Bay, or lu instalments as the work progresses, providing, in tho latter
that the company furnishes satisfactory
guarantees of its ability to complete and
operate the road. It is further provided
that the company must secure the Province for the bonds already issued beforo it can take advantage of this .offer,
Tho bill also provides that iu lieu of
thocaBh bonus, the Government mny
guarantee tho bonds of tho company to
an amount to be agreed upon. Premier
Greenway In discussing the question,
claimed that this was u very large bonus,
and quite as large us the Province, with
its limited resources, could stand. Hi
pointed out that It was double the sum
the Northern Pacific and Manitoba Company received for building the Morris-
Brandon lino. It would amount to an
annual charge, at five per cent., of $87,'
600, or about one-fifteenth of the entire
fixed revenue of Manitoba.
Tho Commercial comments ou tho provincial aid given to the scheme, nnd
argues for Dominion assistance likewise,
as follows: "This is-certainly a small
" grant In comparison with tho old offer
" of the Legislature, and also seeim
"small in comparison with the esti-
" mated cost of building the road,
" which is placed nt ubout $12,000,000.
" On the other hand, there is tho forcible
" argument of the limited resources ol
■" the Province. But if iho Province h
" only able to give $760,000 now, what
"position do thoso occupy who a few
" years ago supported the guarantee o
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Tho Ways and Means Committee at
Washington, says an exchange, has reconsidered the proposed lumber duties
tnd fixed the duty on sawn lumber at
60 per thousand feet,   This is u cut
60 cents per thousand, the existing
duty being $2.
An enterprising musician of Smyrna,
having battled successfully with "la
grippe," has composed a symphony
which describes "musically all the sue-
issive phases of the sickness, from the
premonitory shivering which usually
heralds the attack, to the feverish period,
the utter prostration nnd loss of appetite."
Two large contractors tn Cincinnati
now hire their men by the piece or job,
giving them so much pay for bo much
work. By this plan the beat men make
more In six hours than the poor ones
lo In ten, but It is considered a fair plan
all around. ThiB scheme will doubtless
be adopted all over tho country before
the year ia out, ai a solution to the eight
hours per day problem.—Ex,
The New York Court of Appeals has
decided that execution by electricity is
not a "cruel and unusual" punishment
within the meaning of tho State const!
tution, nnd that the Buffalo murderer
Kemmler, in whose case the question
has been thoroughly tested, must suffer
death In this manner. Several other
murderers are awaiting death by electricity, and tho now system will soon be
glveu a series of trials.
Says an eminent physician: "Show
no a professional athlete 40 yeara old,
I will show you a man old beyond
timo, with bones out of shape, muscles injured and joints stiffened, nnd no
one would promise him five years more
life. Outside of movements to expand
the lungs gymnastics are a positive injury." Various aro the opinions expressed on this subject but it is evident
to any careful observer that gymnastics,
llko many othor things, can easily be
run Into tho ground.
Au exchange perpetrates the following pretty good thing on a"Webb-foot-
ir": Stranger (to Oregon granger)—
'How much of a rainfall did you havo
iu this section Inst winter?"   Granger—
About forty feet." Stranger—"Forty
feet! You mean forty inchoB." Gran-
Ber—"No, I don't; I mean forty feet.'
Stranger—"How did you make the
measurement?" Granger—"Do you see
mt barrel under the spout at the end
ot the house? Well, sir, that barrel is
four feet deep, and I dumped It ten
times last winter."
The best proof that the Pan-American
longress at Washington la not expected
to accomplish anything in the way of
fostering commercial relations between
the North American and South American states is to be found in the fact that
uven while the congress is yet iu session,
ho Ways and Moans Committee proposes to remove hides from the free list
impose a duty upon them of ono and
ii half cents a pound. Hides form ono
the most important articles of import
from South and Central America, the
value of these brought from those sources
in 1887 having beon over $10,000,000.
The proposed tax will greatly reduce
the import—a queer way of fostering
to commercial relations with tho countries

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 tho total val'uo of taxable property in the city limits
was hardly $1,000,000, while to-day it aggregates nearly $5,000,000.
In 1887 tho 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.

Temperature of Trees.—Trom some
observations recorded by Mr. H. L. Rus-
sel in the Botanical Gazette, it appears
that as a general rule the temperature
of the interior of a tree is somewhat
higher than that of the air, except during the warmer parts of the day, the
maximum temperature of the air being generally between one and two p.
m., and the minimum between six and
seven a. m. The comparative tables
show that heat is absorbed and radiated
more rapidly in the outer layers than in
the center.
Experiments made at a time when tbe
buds were starting, in order to determine whether the chemical aetlon
carried on in the tissues gives rise to
heat, led. to the conclusion that it Is
very doubtful whether the metabolite
processes involved generate enough
heat to influence- tho ordinary thermom-
oter. A curious differenoo, however,
was discovered in tlie wood of the oak
nnd pino in winter, the author having
found thut tho temperature of the pine
was lower than that of tho oak at all
times except during tho latter part of the
night and early morning. This is attributed to tho thick coating of the
leaves on the pine preventing absorption of heat hy the trunk, since the
larch, which has similar wood, resembles the oak rather than the pine in the
matter of temperature. The further
conclusion Is reached that tbe direct
absorption of heat is the main cause of
the high temperature of trees, and that
It is largely dependent upon the character of the bark, smooth-barked trees being warmer as a rule than thiok-barked
ones.
Longevity of Elephants.—The journals of Ceylon have recently mentioned
the death of an elephant that was well
known on the island and had been seen
by several generations of Englishmen.
He was called Sello and had belonged
to the last of the Kings of ICandy. Ho
was one of the hundred elephants that
wero taken by the English Government
in 1815, when the ICandyan Dynasty was
overthrown. At this epoch the elephant
was said to be fifteen years old. If this
is correct, he died a natural death at the
age of eighty-nine yeara.
Re: atiox of Plants to Soil.—Mr. G.
Ville, in a paper read before the Academy of Sciences of Paris, shows that
the composition of the soil influences
plants tn five principal characters, viz.:
The stature, the color, the amount of
oarotine and chlorophyl and the quantity of vegetation. A table is given
showing the difference in stature and
color of plants of the common hemp according to the manure used, from whtch
it is evident that this plant flourishes
least tn soil without manure, next tn
manure without potash and in manure
without nitrogon. The absence of lime
and phosphate in tne manure tn the
case of hemp did not interfere so largely with the color and stature of the
plants. It would appear, therefore,
that rich manure is essential, at least,
to the development of foliage.
Structure of Pulpy Fhuits.—To the
Annals of Botany Mr. J. B. Farmer
contributes an article tn whtch, after
pointing out the very different sources
of the pulp in different fruits, he gives
detailed descriptions of its modo of formation In the elder, dulcamara, blackberry and ivy. Tho term berry ts
usually applied to frutts tn which
the pulp or succulent tissue is
derived from the pericarp, but tn Daphne
mezoreon it is formed not only from the
pericarp, but from the outer integument
of tho seed also. In Citrus it isj due to
hairs which spring into the ovarian
cavities and become distended with
fluid. In Vltis and Solanum Duloamava
the pulp is formed partly from the placenta and partly from the pericarp. In
the latter, after fertilization of tho
ovary, the cells of the placenta grow
out between the seeds, so as to give
them tho appearance of being sunk tn
It, and this growth is continued until
met by a similar growth from tho pericarp, so that tho cavity of the ovary is
then filled up with pulpy tissue. Tho
outermost layer of cells of the ovules
also undergo a change, their inner and
side walls becoming lignifled and the
outer wall becoming mucilaginous and
forming part of the mucilage of tbo
pulp, just as it does in linseed. The red
color of dulcamara berries ts due to the
appearance of a large number of ohromo-
plastids derived from the ohlorophyl
granules. At the same time that this
formation takes placo the starch tn tho
fruit becomes changed to sugar.
TEXAS PONY PRACTICE,
Its Performance by   School-Children In
the Lone Star State.
Dishonest college students are muoh
addicted to the use of "ponies." But
these "ponies" are translations of the
classics, which the boys stealthily consult, instead uf getting out their lessons
by hard work. Pony practice by the
school-children of tho South west is more
literal—a good deal moro honorable. A
correspondent of the New York World
says: At Manor, Tex.. In that sparsely settled country along tho lino of the
Houston and Texas Central railway, I
oame to a largo wood-colored building
surrounded by aoaravan of horses. I
counted upward of fifty, all saddled and
each hitched to a tree. Every thing
about the house was as still as death.
"It must ho a funeral," I said.
Suddenly the soene changed. The
doors ot the building burst open and out
broke more than fifty school-children.
"School's out!" they shouted, and a caravan of children scrambled for the
horses.
In a moment the youngsters had
mounted and were riding belter skelter
' over the prairie. The Texas mustangs
seemed to scent the frolic and kicked
ttp their heels as they galloped homo
with the sohool-childron. With their
dinner-pails jingling on tbe pommels of
the saddles and their dresses and
I jackets waving in the wind they looked
like a mad caravan of Bedouins.
"How far did you come?" I asked a
little tot who sat behind hts sister on a
speckled mustang.
"I turn dood way—I turn—"
"Why, he's come six miles," Inter-
Erupted his sister.   "Jimmy ts only five
■ years old.  He doesn't know how far ho
Hdoes oome."
"I live eightmiles," said a little Lord
[Fauntleroy on a dancing bronoho, "but
I oan ride it In an hour, and have done
lit In thirty minutes." Then ho spurred
I his hone till he leaped away over tho
[prairie,     j,	
I    "I was in Washington, not long ago,"
7 Mid a Chicago man in tbe foyer of a
[ theater.   "I was tn the Pennsylvania
' depot.  A man with a valise In each
i hand, followed by a woman and three
children, was on the platform.    The
man spied a well-dressed driver on the
box ot a fine turnout, and called htm to
drive up and get his family and traps.
The driver disdained to notice him until
the man began to swear about Washington's laok of accommodations, Thon
the driver replied: "You may bo a mighty
btg man where you live, but I want you
to understand that this carriage belongs
to the President of the United States
and you can't get tn it.   You better git
some other ve—hi—kel."

Crushed a Truck.
Some time during last night a practical joker took a truck from the sidewalk
opposite Mr. Jas. Wise's store on Front
street and deposited it on the railway
track along side of the C. P. N. Co.'s
corral. When the train went out thiB
morning the truck waB still lying ou the
track, and the engineer either did not
see it or thought such a slight impediment was not worth stopping for, and
the locomotive ran over it, spoiling all
its chances forfuture usefulness. It was
rather risky for the engine, however, as
it bumped and bobbed and gave signs
of leaving the track. But no such accident happened and the whole train
passed over in safety and proceeded ou
its way to the terminal city.
Tollera of the Sea.
Captain Inaley of the steamer Delaware was enjoying a mild Havanna the
day before yesterday—Thursday, to be
accurate. The captain was leaning ou
the rail of the steamer gazing through
the curling.blue smoke wreaths from the
fragrant weed and surveying the opposite bank of the Fraser with the eye
of a connoisseur in scenery,when plump
went something into the water. Looking down at his vest the gallant but
startled captain saw that his heavy gold
albert chain waB dangling in the Breeze
but his splendid $300 gold watch was
gone. It is on occasions like this that
the common spirit gives way to profane
strophes to Julius Cresar, the immortal
gods and other things ancient and
modem, but Captain Insley took prompt
and silent action. He tied an iron bar
to the rail at the spot where tbe watch
had fallen over ana then went and summoned the assistance of Mr. Llewellyn,
tbe diver of Vancouver. That gentleman arrived yesterday, bringing with
him his diving dress. He made the descent in view of a number of prominent
citizens and in exactly five minutes and
forty Beconds reappeared from tbe turgid tide holding aloft the eolden "ticker,"
Those present were much astonished at
this submarine celerity. Mr. Llewellyn
reports that at the depth of twenty-five
feet not the slightest ray of light could
be distinguished. The current has
scooped out a little valley along that
part of the bank and as a consequence
the water along tlie docks is vory deep,
Long,   Bu*y  anil    Eventful   Career
Closed by  the  Curtain of Death.
Death cloned the eyes of one of British
Columbia's best known and well esteemed pioneer sons this morning at three
o'clock. Donald Chisholm, M. P., or as
he was affectionately known by hia hosts
of friends, not only throughout the Province, but over the Pacific slope, "Doc"
Cliisholm, has quietly passed away from
the scene of his long and stirring life to
tho other shore. From nearly every
flagstaff in this city the banners of
mourning drooped sorrowfully at half-
mnst to-diiy. Little groups of our elder
citizens could be noted standing on the
sidewalks, and with Bad faces recalling
to mind the history of the remarkable
life that ended so quietly last evening.
That he was loved and reBpected by all
who knew him is a fact that has bee
conspicuously brought forward by the
subdued but sincere Borrow which ib felt
throughout the city at his demise.
The history of this hardy pioneer is so
full of marvellous adventures and thrilling experiences, hardships, dangers and
vicissitudes, that the best pen in the
ranks of fiction to-duy might well enshrine it in imperishable story.
Born iu 1822 nt the Lower South river
of Antigonish, Nova Scotia, of' Scottish
fiarcnts. he received a good education in
lis native place, and soon tiring of the
quiet uneventful life of the eastern provinces, he took his departure for California where he arrived in 1849. In the
Golden State he waB engaged principally
in mining, in which he had but indifferent success, He was a man, however,
who always commanded respect, and
that his mining colleagues liighly esteemed tho sound common sense, which
was one of the distinguishing features of
his character, is amply proved by the
fact that they invited him to frame with
them the original mining laws of California—laws which were drawn up with
so much intelligence and prudence that
they are to a great extent in operation
at the present time.
Mr. Chisholm left California and
sought other scenes, in British Columbia, in 1858. He went first to Hope, and
was a Government officer for several
years at that place. In the spring of
1800 he was chosen aa delegate for Hope
to attend the People's Convention at
Westminster, This trust lie served in
his usual faithful and honorable way,
aud to the complete satisfaction of those
he represented.
Mr. Chisholm at this time published
u pamphlet dealing with the abuses
committed hy the Government of that
time. Public opinion ran high at the
time of tlie publication of this pamphlet
and the author was fortunate in voicing
the thoughts and desires of the people,
whereby he gained great popularity,
Chiefly through his instrumentality
Malcolm Cameron of Canada came out
here and it waB then that the famous
$1000 subscription wob raised to send
Cameron to the British House of Parliament to demand in the name of the
people of British Columbia a Governor
and a Government of their own. The
complete success of this patriotic enterprise is one of the most glorious circumstances in our Provincial umiak Mr.
ChiBliolm was engaged in busineas at
Hope about 1800, then the old roving
spirit moved him again, and ho went
back to mining, at Big Bend, going
through the Sclkirks to reach that location. While here, he was the hero of
an adventure so appalling that those
who witnessed it will remember the occasion to the last hour of their lives. It
was spring, and the inciting snow had
converted the Creok into a ragini
torrent.   McCulloch's Creek is iiBmaf
support of a squad from the artillery under Cnpt. Townley, the rifles got the order to charge in line( which thoy performed in a very satisfactory manner,
driving the enemy out of their stronghold at the point of the sword.
This ended the battle and the Artillery
then went out to the Crescent battery
and bombarded the Brownsville coal
mineB for the rest of the day. They
were hammering away with twenty-four
pound shot and shell as we go to press.
The Rifles were put through a few coin-
Iril
ly movements and the skirmishing
1, and then marched back to quarters
and were dismissed.
Both corpB are ordered to parade tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock, and
march to Holy Trinity«hurch. Lieut-
Colonel Holmes will be present nt this
parade and address the corps before
leaving the drill shed.

CAPT. WARREN'S MISSION.
How the Behring Sea On cull mi In Re<
gartled In Washington—A Lung Close
Neaaon Talked of.
A representative of the Colonist called
uiwn Capt. J. D. Warren almost us soon
as he returned home last night. The
captain looked none the worse for his
long journey across the continent and
when asked "What news from Washington?" he replied seutoiitiously, "Very
little." "I can tell you," he continued,
"nothing authoritatively about what Is
going on in Washington respecting the
Behring's Sea question. Like other
people who take an interest in the matter, I heard the reports that were abroad,
but those who are engaged in the negotiations keep their own secrets. They
have not taken the public into their
confidence just yet."
"Well, what waB the talk there?
The talk was that the Americans do
not claim that Behring's Sea is a
closed sea, and that they are trying to
get the British minister to agree to a
long close season. They want tho sea
closed during the only months in which
seal hunting can be done in it by British
Columbia vessels. Those months are,
it Ib said, June, July, August and September."
"Are the Alaska Company to be required to observe this close season?"
"I rather think not. It was to be a
close season for outsiders, but not for
the Company. However, nothing definite has leaked out about the negotiations. All that is known is that they
are still in progress."
"Have you any idea when they will be
concluded?"
None iu the world. The Hon. Mr.
Tupper is in Ottawa now, but it is believed he will return to Washington before long."
"How about compensation for the
British ownerB whose Teasels have been
seized by the American cruisers?"
I have no information to give you
about that. As I have told you, those
engaged in the negotiations say very little indeed about what is being done."
"Is much interest taken in the matter
In the United States?"
"Very little, indeed, as far as I could
see. Tne Americans take the matter
very quietly. There is hardly anything
said about it by the people generally."
Capt. Warren wus cordial indeed, and
ready enough to talk; but the Colonist
representative had a very strong suspicion that he did not tell all he knows
about the Behring Sea, but that lie kept
a good deal to himself that, he was not
at liberty to talk about. Capt. Warren
is discreet, and the newspaper man mado
a virtue of necessity anddid not attempt
to persuade him to talk about the matters on which it waa evident he was determined to say very little.—Colon ist of
Thursday.
"Agreeable"  Murderer*.
Hon. Justice Walkem, who was on the
bench at the trial of Capt. McLean today, related an anecdote which went to
show that no matter what crime a man
committed, people would be found who
were ready to swear that the criminal
waa a nice fellow. He Instanced a case
where a prominent politician in the
States was on trial for murder. It hod
been proven conclusively that the crime
had been committed, but dozens of people went to the stand and swore that the
murderer was an agreeable gentleman.

his position and abandoned newspaper
work. Mr. Gosnell intends remain ing
in Vancouver, having too much belief in
the city's future and the progreiH of the
Province generally to seek his fortune
elsewhere. He will open n general commission and land agency business and
intends to conduct several special
branches of trade not hitherto developed
in this Province.—Newt-Advertiser, Mr,
Gosnell will be succeeded by Mr. J. B.
Kerr, formerly on the staff of that paper.

body of water normally, running through
a tremendous defile in the mountain
side, and having slippery, perpendicular
sides of solid rock, aud broken up into
numberless cascades and whirling rapids. The miners in Gold Creek, look,
ing up, saw Mr. Chisholm about to cross
tho creek cither ou a log or a snow
bridge. Tho treacherous bridgo gave
way and the bold traveller was in au instant hurled into the seething torrent
and whirled witli the rapidity of light
down a rapid, dashed over a fall, spun
round in an eddy, shot down another
long foaming rapid among the sharp
jagged rocks, and finally flung out on the
bank of Gold Creek, utterly exhausted
aud chilled, but without a scratch to tell
of his terrible trip.
With such adventures the history of
the life of the man teems, and only the
magnificent physique and indomitable
courage, combined with a most rugged
constitution, could have borne him
through the sixty years of hardship,
adventure and toil which made up his
life. For some years Mr. Chisholm was
engaged in business ns a merchant in
this city, and was president of the Board
of Trade. He was returned to Parliament at the general election of 1887. In
politics Mr. Chisholm was a Liberal-
Conservative, He was never married,
His business interests were very extensive, he was heavily concerned in the
cannery and real estate busiueses, besides conducting his own business of
wholesale wine merchant in Westminster. The illness to which he succumbed
was not of a very defined character, but
may be described as the gradual failure
of a fine constitution, after a life of ceaseless activity und more vicissitudes than
usually fall to the share of average man.
The end had been long expected, and
little surprise, though great and sincere
sorrow, was expressed on every hand
this morning when the melancholy intelligence was bruited about. The deceased has three brothers living iu tho
United States, and MIbs Chisholm, hh>
niece, who has tended him since the
beginning of the decline of his health, Ib
nt present residing at tho late home of
Mr. Chisholm. The remains will be
embalmed here, and will be taken back
to his old home in Antigonish early next
week. Thee funeral will take place on
Monday at 10 o'clock from the late residence of the deceased to the Catholic
Cathedral.
OUR GALLANT DEFENDERS,
An Inapeetlon To-Day ut Queen'a Park
By Lt.-Col. HolnieN and Staff—The
Trunin Fight n Fierce Hut llloodleaa
Battle and nre  Vlcitorloui.
Precisely ut 2 p.m. the two military
companies, uf which Westminster is
reasonably so proud, got the word to
"by the right, quick march." The
"milingtary" then inarched to the
Queen's Park, there to undergo the
annual inspection and spring manoeuvres, under the eagle eye of Lt.-Col,
Holmes, commandant of "C" Battery,
The artillery turned out thirty Btrong,
tho rifles forty Btrong. The appearance
of the two corps as they marched along
the sidewalks towards the park was
truly splendid, They looked every
inch soldiers and everything was so
neat and clean and orderly and
martial iu their aspect that It would
have been hard for a stronger to believe
that they were not regulars from some
British military establishment on their
way to the seat of war. At tho park no
time was lost by the commanding officer
in putting the soldiers through the
inspection exercises. Speaking generally, the inspection wns most satisfactory. To come down to detail the manual exercise loft much to be desired;
the evolutions, marching, countermarching nud funning were excellent. At the
conclusion o[ Ibe inspection » detachment of the artillery under the command uf Lieut. 1'ort went up into the
woods and "laid low,"and shortly afterwards a party of the rifles came up under
Captain Scoullar and attempted to
disliM.ge the artillery, but the
latter would Hot lie dislodged, but
kept up a steady fire, Tlie rifles
returned the compliment in kind
until reinforced bv another detachment, brought up * at the double by
Lieut, Glover. The combined forces
then went after the unlucky gunners
through tho woods in a style to cause
surprise, but again were obliged to retire,   After reforming and receiving the
Out.

THE MORMON BOLD
Geta Very Wrathy   Over the   BUI   He-
eently Introduced hi the Senate.
Mr. A. Maitlttiid Stenhouse, of Cord-
ston, via Lethbridge, N. W. T., writes
to the Ottawa press as follows: "Allow
me a few lines of your space to protest
against the gratuitous insult offered to
women in a bill which, I understand,
i lately introduced iu the Canadian
Senate by some honorable member
whose name I have forgotten. Although
this measure is intelligible enough In
those of its provisions which prohibit
tlie practice of u normal polygamy, its
effect, in other portions, is apparently
to make its author responsible tor a very
gross insinuation, which may possibly
have escaped the notice of the House;
and which the Americans, with all their
reputed coarseneas, have yet had the
delicacy to exclude from their congressional transactions. Among all the legislators who have ever made history
this continent, it would seem to have
been reserved for one of our own Senators to impute to womankind a secret,
propensity for the mythical orgies of
polyandry. This monstrosity, as knowingly anticipated in this bill, is physically as impossible as eternal punishment. Ask any woman of any creed if
she approves of a simultaneous plurality
of husbands, and you will get an indignant and emphatic "No." That polyandry exists or can exist anywhere, in
the sense in which polygamy is polygamy, I confidently deny, Thero is no
such thing among the Aryan peoplfe as a
voluntary and spontaneous polyandry.
Nature herself has scourged it from the
earth with frightful visitations. Even
tho so-called polyandry of New York
state is little else than a casual series of
monogamous covenants, formed without
the interposition of a public divorce.
Not the most absolute freedom of contract iu marriage could ever lift polyandry to the level of an established custom, or make it anything else than its
own destroyer. Perceiving this, Americans have had the wisdom to leave such
eccentricities to their natural fate. It
has remained for the genius who conceived the first anti-polyandry bill,
known to British constitutional history,
to rush in where statesmen fear to
tread."
