Great Floodh.
New Orleans, April"128.—The rumor
which prevailed some days ago about
the loss of life from the flood in the in*
turiu - of West Baton Rouge pariah is
authenticated. Six lives were lost as
far as is known, all negroes. Nine
miles from Lobdell break the water rose
so suddenly that most of the cattle iu
that section were drowned before they
could be got out. ___
Chinese  Captured.
Nogai.kb, Ariz., April 28.—The deputy
collector of customs here has six Chinamen in jail who wore captured while
crossing the Hue from Mexico into the
United States. They are a portion of
party of 87 landed a few
days ago at Guaymas by the steamer
from San Francisco. United States Inspector Schell, who is now here, has
discovered that another party came up
the Sonont Railroad as far as Santa Ana,
from which point they started for San
Saba with the intention it is thaught of
crossing into the United States at that
point. The force of mounted inspectors
along the line seems wholly inadequate
to the tusk of heading off the invading
Chinese.	
A Modest Demand.
Nkw Yoitx, April 28.—Several loaders
in the Socialistic movement, at a meeting held on Saturday evening, demanded that the labor men should insist on
having the red flag at the masthead of
the city hall on May first. The chairman refused to put any question in regard to the matter and' the plan of waving the red flag was dropped.
Quite  ltoinantle.
Wilkebdabbjs, Pa,, April 28.—The
Shoemaker family is one of the oldest
and wealthiest in the anthracite coal
regions. Their income from the coal
Myalitiea alone reach a quarter of a million dollars a year. One member of the
family is McDonald and aged about 30,
his income is about $20,000 a year. Six
months ago it was given out that McDonald was about to marry the daughter
of a rich citizen residing on River street;
his family received the match favorably.
All at once young Shoemaker said that
he wold not marry a girl that had
been raised in tho lap of luxury.
He had a terrible dread that he would
one day became poor, and then his wife
would lie naC^elp to him. He proposed
to marry a w»r girl who in the hour of
adversity, if such an hour came, could
assist him in earning his daily bread,
Annie Lawrence was the girl he proposed
to marry, She was formerly employed
aa housekeeper. Whon Shoemaker's
relatives heard of his intentions they
became highly indignant. The court
was petitioned to appoint a commlsion
to examine into the young man's sanity
and the request was granted. This
action of his relatives made Shoemaker
all the more determined to marry the
girl of his choice. One day laat week ho
and the Lawrence girl took the train for
Elmira where they were married. On
Saturday Shoemaker returned with his
bride. His purpose was to install the
latter in his mother's house on Union
street. His uncle, John narrower, waa
in waiting aud as soon as the bridal
couple put in an appearance narrower
took tho baggage, tired it into the street,
and when Shoemaker attempted to
enter the house the uncle knocked him
down, blackened hiB eyes and kicked
him iuto the gutter. Shoemaker at
once went before Mayor Sutton and had
Ids uncle arrested. There is great excitement in aristocratic circles over the
affair. Uncle narrower says that Shoemaker has degraded himself, but he is
not going to do ao with the family. II la
wife will not be admitted to the family
circle under any circumstances.
Another Benwell Case*
Montreal, April 28.—As the facta accumulate, the disappearance of Thos.
Kiuiber, the young Englishman, from
the Grand Central Hotel ou the 1st lust.,
they tend to the suspicion that Kimber,
like Benwell, has been foully dealt with.
Tlie behavior of Thos. Styles, the pro-
£rietor of th" Grand Hotel, in the mat-
jt has been peculiar and unsatisfactory.
Detectives searched- the hotel premises
from cellar to garret to-day, but not a
trace of the missing man was found.
Kimber waa accompanied from England
Uy two brothers, T. W. and G. W. Harvey, of Truro, Cornwall,England. They
are now believed to be in British Columbia nnd the authorities are looking for
them. __
The Belied Skins.
San Francisco, April 28.—A. J. Porter, United States Marshal for the district of Alaska, Ib in the City waiting
tho arrival of tho steamer St. Paul!
which is expected to arrive here oarly
next month. Tho steamer will bring
2,000 sealskins, seised by the revenue
cutter Rush last year in Behring Sea,
from five contraband vesaels. The
skins, which for some time havo been
stored in Ounalaska, represent an approximate value of $20,000. They will
be sold at public auction to the highest
bidder, and the receipts will go Into tho
Government treasury. Mr, Porter, who
waa formerly owner aud editor of the
Albany, Oregon, Herald, received his
appointment, last October, and talks in-
Spain In Danger.
Parib, April 28.-Thon.as W. Palmer,
United States Minister to Spain, who is
passing through Paris on hiB way to
America, admitted in an. interview today that there is danger of a Republican
uprising in Spain.
Mclntoih Elected.
Ottawa, April 26.—The election today in this city to fill the vacancy caused
by the death of the late Mr. Perley,
resulted in the return of Mr. Macintosh
(Conservative), by 806 over the Equal
Rights candidate, Mr. Hayard; by a
majority of 1,212 over Mr. Chrysler, the
Liberal candidate. All sides worked
very hard and the good showing made
by the Equal Righters haa caused great
excitement. Large numbers of Conservatives and Liberals left their respective
Birties to join the ranks of the Equal
tenters.. The Lower town, the French
and Catholic parties of the oity, had
beon greatly iu favor of the Liberals.
Last night the district was flooded
with circulars signed by a number of
prominent Conservative Frenchmen he-
seeching their compatriots to stand by
Sir John Macdonald's candidate. Great
pressure waa brought to bear and at the
laat moment the French vote carried the
day. Tho victory was with the Equal
Righters in the English speaking towns.
The latter are jubilant over their partial
success. The vote was: Macintosh,
2,403; Hayard, 1,507; Chrysler, 1,261.
PARLIAMENTARY  TAILINGS.
Frlday'o Proceeding.
terestingly upon leading Alaska topics.
One of tlie matters that are looked forward to with a great deal of interest,

that are now being made In Washington, to extend the land laws In the tor-
.tijfity- Besides those owning claimB

. From Onr Own Correspondent.)
Following is the conclusion of the actual business of the Provincial Legislature, prior to the prorogation ceremonies
of Saturday, aud which was crowded
out of our laat issue:
Mr. Speaker took the chair 8 p. m.
Mr. Duck presented the report of the
Publie Accounts Committee, also the
minority report of the same committee.
Mr Duck said the committee had thought
it not advisable to report the evidence.
It had been so agreed by the committee.
Hon. Mr. Davie wished this decision
on the records of the House,
Both reports received and directed to
be printed.   ,
Hon. Mr, Davie said the evidence was
very voluminous aud it would be not
only laborious to read, but be of little or
no interest to the public.
Hon. Mr. Robson said the time of tho
House Bhould not be wasted running
after the evidence.
Mr. Orr said the two reports differed
from one another materially and theevi-
dence should be procured.
Hou. Mr. Robson said there was no
difference; if any existed at all, it was
that one was tweedle-dum and the other
tweedle-dee.   (Smiles.)
Hon. Mr. Vernon presented to House
somo further correspondence that had
been called for, in referronce to the
North Arm Bridges.
Hon. Mr. Robson presented two nica-
ges from His Honor the Lieutenant-
Governor, the first regarding the Mechanics Lien Act amendment; the second regarding the Royal Jubilee Hospital Bill.
The messages were referred forthwith
to committee of the whole.
Committee rose and reported the resolution on the first bill to the House.
Report adopted.
The Mechanics' Lien Bill, after a few
slight amendments, was passed.
House then went into committee on
the Jubillee Hospital Bill, Mr. Duck in
the chair. Committee rose and reported the resolution to the House. A
fllightrfimendment was also made to the
bill and the report was adopted, and the
bill passed.
Hon. Mr, Davie moved a number of
amendments, on the motion to adopt
the report on bill No. 80, Intituled "An
Act to amend the 'Provincial Voters'
Act.'" Committee rose and reported
the bill complete with amendments;
report adopted, bill read a third time
and passed.
The report on the Mineral Bill was
adopted after a few alight clerical
amendments being made to it, read
a third time and passed.
House went iuto committee on the
County Courts Bill, Mr. Anderson iu
the chair.
Hou. Mr. Davie said that it had been
thought best to strike out clause 10.
He had consulted far higher legal
authorities than he could ever hope to
be, and the conclusion arrived at was
that thiB clause should be excised from
tho bill. He moved the striking out of
the clause, which was expunged accordingly. Committee rose ana reported
tlie bill complete with amendments.
Report adopted, bill read a third time
and passed.
House went into committee on the
Companies Bill, Mr. Martin in the chair.
Committee rose and reported the bill
complete with amendments. Report
adopted, bill read a third time and passed.
The business of the House having
been concluded, the Premier rose and
said: Mr. Speaker—Before making the
usual formal motion for the last time in
this legislature, I desire to make a few
remarks. First of all, air, I wish to compliment you upon the manner in which
you have discharged the important function of Speaker. Quick to take up
points and firm to maintain them.vou
nave presided with an amount of fairness and ability moat creditable alike to
yourself and the Houae, and I am quite
aure you were not many days in that
chair before every honorable member on
both sides of the House became convinced that they had made a wise choice
—that you were the right man in the
right place. The session now closing la
tlie first during which I have occupied
the honorable and responsible position
of leader of the House. Conscious of my
many shortcomings, I desire to thank
the honorable gentlemen on both sides
for their loyal, hearty and conscientious
support. In the heat of debate some
acrimonious things have no doubt been
said by most of us; but, speaking for
myself, I can only express regret if I
have hurt the feelings of any, and I can
assure hon, gentlemen that I shaU leave
this House without hard or unfriendly
feelings towards any. During the term
now closing three of our number have
been removed by death, and God alone
knows how many of ub may bo spared to
come back. My most hearty wish Is
that we may all be spared to come back
to tlie new Houae und work for the good
of our Province lu the future as earnestly and harmoniously aB we have done in
the past. Mr. Speaker, I now move
that this House at its rising do stand
adjourned till 11 o'clock to-morrow forenoon.
Hon. Mr. Beaven followed the hon.
leader of the Government. His voice
trembled with emotion and only by a
strong effort of will could he control
himself as ho spoke as follows: On behalf of this side of the House I rise to
offer a few parting remarks, as it may be
the last time that many of us shall lie
met together aa we aro to-night. I have
been moat agreeably surprised at the
ability, integrity and high sense of Justice displayed throughout this entire
session by Mr. Speaker. Iu his decisions
he has shown a depth of research into
Parliamentary law only equalled by the
invariable wisdom and justice that have
signalized his conclusions, Every hon.
member iu this House must feel that
Mr. Speaker's decisions have done nothing but the strictest justice to both sides
of the House. He has shown not the
slightest petty partisanship, but has
been actuated, aB his decisions have
shown, by motives of the highest honor
and justice. I believe I am the only
member, on this side of the House at
least, who haB occupied a seat iu this
assembly ever since confederation, (applause and cries of "hear, hear)," and
no matter how I may have differed with
the hon. gentlemen ou the Government
side of the House, and differed most materially, too, in many cases, I trust sincerely that in Bpite of those differences
oil matters of public business we may
still meet as good friends and gentlemen, in pleasant intercourse. (Loud
cries of hear, hear.) We must
disagree sometimes, of course, on public
matters; that is only to be expected, but
I am happy to say, never on personal
matters or as friends. I am afraid it is
my disposition to say things sometimes
that may seem unpleasant and harsh,
for I am no hand at dissembling my
feelings or thoughts, but if 1 have said
at any time anything that might have
hurt the feelings of any honorable member, I am very sorry for it. I hope xery
many of the honorable gentlemen 1 see
around me to-night will occupy their
Beats hi this Houso again next session,
but I should feel it my duty, should anv
of the honorable gentlemen opposite
occupy the same seats again and hold
the same opinions as they have done
this session, to oppose them by every
means in my power. (Great laughter
and loud applause.
Hon. Mr. Robson (deprecatinglv aud
shaking hia head)—Ah, ah, my honorable friend must have that inevitable
Bting in the tail of his remarks. (Roars
of laughter and rapturous applause)
Mr. Speaker then slowly rose and was
saluted with long-continued applause.
He said: Gentlemen, I feel that I must
offer mv testimony of gratitude to both
sides of the House for the unvarying
courtesy with which they have accepted
my rulings throughout this session. I
feel to-night only sentiments of gratification at the amicable and gentlemanly
manner in which the business of this
House has been conducted throughout
this important session, and, as I already
aaid, gratitude for the kindness and consideration of every honorable member
in the HouBe. From start to finish I
have always tried to do my duty (applause). That has been my ruling principle iu all cases; and lean only say
that if I have made any mistakes, they
have been, as the old saying has it,
"errors of the head, but not of the
heart." (Applause and hear, hear).
Throughout the session I feel that I
have been sustained and buoyed up by
the hearty support of honorable members on both slues of the House. Their
kind assistance has always been to me,
to quote a phrase of Scripture, a "lamp
unto my feet" and a valuable guide to
my decisions. It pains me to think that
it is scarcely possible that we shall all
meet here again next session; hi the
rough, but happy vernacular of Jack,
some of us will "miss tlie number of
our mess." (Laughtef). I assure you,
gentlemen, that I feel very like that
mother in the tele, who was going to
part with hor children for some purpose
or other; and had the little ones all
ranged out in front of her that she
might gaze upon their sweet childish
faces once more, and the sight so overcame her maternal heart that, crying,
—"come to my breast my children, 1
cannot part with one of you; I shall
keep you all," Bhe gathered them to her
heart and abandoned her project.
(Laughter, applause and cries of hear,
hear). Those feelings I largely experience to-night, but I hope gentlemen, to
see you all gathered together again another session.' And I assure you that
in wliatever Bphere my path may bo
cast I shall always do my duty. (Loud
and prolonged applause).'  -
Hon, Mr. Robson then arose for the
last time this session, and, with his old
HCCUBtoineU dignity, (.poke tho old. fun.il-
iar motion in n voice that was somewhat tremulous: "Mr. Speaker, I move
that this House do now adjourn."
Houae adjourned at 10:35 p.m.
Exercises of a slightly convivial nature
ensued and a kindly smile (no pun on
this work ia intended) lit up every
countenance in the halls aud corridors
of the Parliament building. The best
of good feeling waa manifested by everyone, and all seemed to regret that the
hour of parting hud come atlast. A sumptuous luncheon had been ordered served
in the refreshment room by Mr. Speaker,
and many of the members and the press
representatives partook of the dainty
fare with unusual gusto.
With the old Roman actors, the Legislative Assembly as they leave the stage
for another year may say, " Vox valdete,
ac plaudite."

CORRESPONDENCE.
THK MAINLAND DRLROATION.
Editor Columbian—Sir; — Will you
kindly find room for the following letter
which I have addressed to the Victoria
Colonist and which will doubtless appear
in that paper to-morrow ? Aa the roport in tlie Colonist has a semi-official
character, I think it la necessary to put
on record the fact that it doea not do justice to the strength of the position taken
by the,delegation.   Yours. Ac,
J. C. Brown.
Editor Colonist—Sir.—Will you allow*
me to say that your report of the interview between this delegation and the
Government, is very far from being accurate. Justice is done to neither side
and, naturally enough, I daresay, those
speakers who were strangers to tho reporter suffer more than those whom he
was accustomed to "take."
Let me give you just one sample: The
Attorney-General having stated that no
difference worth mentioning could be
proved between the population of the
Island and that of the Mainland—neither
voters' Hats, number of school children
nor amount of taxes proved it, 1 am
made to reply that the voters in New
Westminster District "and the lower
constituencies" wore almost exactly
one-third of those ou the Island—and
thon the discussion branches of to something else.
Now, my answer waa that the voterB
in the Lower Fraser conatituancieB
numbered almost exactly 600 leas than
those on the Island, (I find the exact
numbers on the 28th April will. be-
Lower Fraser, 6,566; Island, 7,ill),
white the public accounts show these
constituencies to have contributed to
the revenuo over $50,000 more than the
whole Island; ao that, taking tho Attorney-General's own means of estimating,
it would bo fair to call these constituencies equal to.the whole Island, and if, as
he said, there was no difference worth
mentioning between the whole of tho
Mainland and the Island, it followed
that all the Mainland outside tho
Lower Fraacr was not worth mentioning
—yet the new bill proposed to givo that
part eleven members. The wholo re*
port may lie judged by this sample.

(Before Mr, Justice Drake.)
The case of Lund vs. Lund for divorce
and matrimonial division was called in
this court thia morning at 11:45. Tlie
court was well tilled with spectators and
the legal fraternity and all the persons
in any way connected with the case.
Mr. A. J. McColl appeared for the
plaintiff; Messrs. L. P. Eckstein, J. E.
Gaynor and Chas. Wilson, Victoria, for
the defence.
The jury was duly sworn and were aa
follows: Messrs. John Hendry, D. S.
Milligan, J. Reece, C. G. Major, C. J.
Sim, A. ti. Gamble, Geo. Turner, J. W. '
MacFarlane. Mr. McColl then addressed the jury. The plaintiff, he said, was
well known to most of them, aB also was
Hill the co-respondent. He had begun
to live at Lund's house last AugUBt, and
had, at various times, conducted himself in such a maimer and committed
the guilty acts which would be explained in detail later on. And they were of
such a nature that the jury would have
little difficulty in seeing the good
grounds there wero for divorce. One of
the most important things to lay before
tho jury is the feelings and actions of
the plaintiff in the interim between the
discovery of the crlmo and the trial.
The plaiutill', as they were probably
aware, comes into this court totally unfitted to undergo the ordeal of a rigid
cross-examination. The suffering which
he had endured iu the three or four
weeks lately past and the mental torture
he had experienced brooding over hia
wrongs had wrought upon him In a manner most detrimental to his health. It
was expected that the plaintiff would
have to Btand a very severe cross-
examination in a charge of cruelty to
his wifo, but after what lie had explained to them it would be next to impossibly for the plaintiff to get into the dox
and show the .falsity of that charge.
For himself he would ask the jury to
bear with him as he had not been in bed
for the laat two days, and besides, had
been unfortunate enough to be unable
to procure certain important pieces of
evidence. He felt sure the jury would
not allow themselves to lie led away by
any feelinga of sympathy or pity that
might pervade their minds on hearing
the evidence, but come to the proper
and only conclusion iu regard to the
guilt of those parties. He would produce two disinterested and unbiased
witnesses aud from their evidence the
jury would have no difficulty in coming
to a conclusion.
This case simply consisted of one of
two things; this was either a foul conspiracy or else no doubt of the guilt of
the respondent aud co-respondent could
Ijo entertained. The parties to this
case were married iu 1883 and have had
four children. In November, 1888, Mr.
Lund and his wife became estranged
and the difference between them waB
of so aggravated a nature that
he had to take his meals out of the house.
Hill, the co-respondent, came to lodge in
the house last August. Mr. -Lund waB
often out at night and waB frequently
away from home. He and his wife had
not occupied the same room after the
birth of their last child. There wbb a
mutual charge of refusal oi matrimonial
privileges. Mr. McColl then detailed
the occurrences of the night of December 22nd last and explained the position
of the various rooms in the house and
the precautions taken by Lund to overhear tbe meetings between his wife and
Hill.
Thu cam* tlion prmioot.oil.    A. O. Lund,
sworn, said he was the husband of Mrs.
Lund. They were married iu 1883 and
have had four children. One child died
on November 5th last. The first unpleasantness with his wife took place
last summer. He was boarding out at
that time, owing to being engaged in
building a house. There was no particular trouble, and he sometimes took
meals in the house. Ue first knew the
co-respondent, Thomas Hill, last August
when lie came as a lodger to Lund's
houae. He first began to suspect improper conduct on the part of his wife and
Hill last December. On the 22nd of
December he came home at 10 p. m., and
entered the house by the back door, as
usual. While standing in the dining-
room, Mrs. Lund suddenly rushed out of
tlie hall holding both hands over her
face. She went and leaned on
the mantel piece iu the dining room
and seemed much excited. A moment
afterwards he heard someone rush upstairs. At this point Mr. Wilson for the
defence, asked that all witnesses be excluded from the court. This was accordingly done. On the 20th of December, he came home at 11 o'clock in the
morning, and on going upstairs heard
Mrs. Lund in Hill b room. He went out
into the hall and aaw that Hill's bedroom
door was shut. He went down stairs
and returned in about ton minutes when
lie saw Airs. Lund doing some household work in the rooms.
Shortly after thia occurrence he told
Mrs. Lund that he was going out to hia
farm. Immediately after telling her
this he went upstairs aud made an examination of Hill's lied but found nothing there to excite his suspicions. The
same day he took the fastening off the
kitchen window. He wont to the station on the Slat December, but did not
go to his farm; he had never intended
going there. He returned home at
about 0 o'clock iu tho evening, next
day along with A. G. Johnson and
another friend, whom he had asked to
accompany him. they tried the cellar
door and found it barred and the kitchen
window was also scoured. Ho returned
next day and entered the house by the
back door, lighting a lamp he hurried
to Hill's room and found suspicious
signs. Next day ho went to feed
his cows and camo homo about
0 o'clock in the evening. Between 0 and
10 o'clock ho looked through tho keyhole
into dining-room and saw Hill and Mrs.
Lund sitting very eloae together; Hill
was patting her cheek and smoothing
her hair and shoulders. Then went • up
to hiB room and came down again between 11 and 12 o'clock, looked through
keyhole and saw Hill and Mrs. Lund
standing near the table i Hilt embraced
and kissed her several tunes. Mrs. Lund
then turned tlie lamp out and witness
got excited and went up ataira; didn't
aleop that night; heard Hill go to bed
later.
Court adjourned for an hour.
On resuming, Mr. McColl continued
his examination of A. O, Lund, The
details of a part of the examination
were not of a fit nature for publication,
Witness emphatically denied the statement that he had ill-treated his children by refusing them proper food. He
admitted that on tho night of Jan. 0th
he struck his wife. The trouble arose
ovor somo silver knives which, she alleged, wero n Christinas present from
hermothor.   The bill for thoBo goods
CMIdnn Cry for Pitcher's Cutoria:
was subsequently received by witness
from Mr. T. J. Trapp. On witness pressing the matter for an explanation Mrs,
Lund began to abuse liim and called him
an "old Blag," "worse than a Siwaah"
and "a crazy lunatic who ought to be in
the asylum/' Mr. Lund told her he
would slap her if sho dared to use such
language to him. She continued her
abuse and he kept his promise by boxing her ears twice. His father-in-law
met him aome days after and expressed
his opinion on tho subject of tlie assault
in vigorous, but inelegant language.
Witness had cut away the latliB and Iln-
ner plaster on. tho wall of a closet between Hill's room and his own bo that

SOOTHING-SYRUP A WHITEWASH.
Thk Colonist of Saturday laat talks in
a Booth ing-syrup sort of a style to what
it conceives to be its erring Mainland
cotemporarics. Bless its grandmotherly heart I it would plainly rather administer paregoric any day than enquire too
closely into the cauae of tho trouble,
with a view to its radical amelioration.
It would cry "Poace! peace! where
" there is no peace," aud slobber over a
deadly canker in tho body politic with
specious varnish, in preference to honestly admitting the sore and endeavoring to provide a remedy.
It appears to be assumed by some of
our cote mpovaries that the Colonist's
articles ou Provincial politics arc inspired. Wo can hardly believe, however,
that the Governmental afflatus has had
anything to do with that paper's leaders
on the redistribution question: they are
so stupid as to go beyond the Premier
altogether in his apologies for the measure. The attitude of tho Premier on
the Redistribution Bill which his Government formulated, attested by repeated utterances, is -briefly, iu effect, as
follows: "The bill, is not satisfactory
" or juBt, even as a temporary and par-
" tial measure, but it was insisted upon
" by my Government; it was the best
" that they would agree to; therefore I
" was compelled to accept it, or resign;
" and, to save the country from 'go-
" 'ing to the dogs'—i. e. the Opposition
" —I chose   the former alternative."
The Premier, of course, claims that he
did a wise thing, under the circumstances—that is, by introducing, and
half-heartedly supporting, what he
knew, and publicly acknowledged, to be
an unfair measure, aud bnsed on a theory which he (the Premier) emphatically stated, and reiterated, to be a
totally groundless fiction—but he, very
wisely as well as honestly, claimed
nothing for the bill itself; but, ou the
contrary, took the public into his confidence, freely admitting that the measure was an unfair and an unsatisfactory
one, but, that owing to thero being no
"two peas alike" in the Cabinet, etc.,
it was the best that could be got at the
present time.
The zealous, but foolish Colonist, however, takes a bigger job than it is aBked
to do, and one which, if persisted in,
' will oxauBt all the lime in San Juan,
when it attempts, inforentially, at least
(even the Colonist has too much aonao
to do so directly), to whitewash
what overyone knows, and what tho
Premier has admit tod, in lu. an unfair
and unjust measure, forced upon the
Government and through the House by
an unscrupulous sectional majority,
The Colonist states what is not true
when it says that attacks and not criticism has been used by the Mainland
press in the redistribution question.
On the other hand, that paper notably
abstains from any attempt at argument
bearing on the real question, but contents itself with mere statements and
slushy generalities. The Mainland
pnpers have not spoken hastily on the
question, and much more remains to be
Baid on the aame subject. Whole barrels of Colonist whitewash will avail
nothing to hide the real nature of the
so-called Redistribution Bill or obscure
tho points at issue.
in Dublin, Bhould undertake the work
of settling matters with the owners of
the soil. Moreover, the task of expropriating the lands so entered upon was
to be fair, and not merely in the interests of the classes. The expropriation
was intended to be compulsory, and
quite a different thing from the halfhearted measure at present under consideration, by which if it becomes law,
the bad cruel absentee landlord will still
be at liberty to refuse to sell, and may
still go on demanding his rents, under
pain of eviction, which Mr. Gladstone
has said is "worse than sentence of
"death;" whilst'tbe good landlord,
who has alwayB endeavored to do hia
best by the people, at length disgusted
at the tinkering and class policy, which
has ever been Ireland's portion (except
when for diversion a coercion bill haB
been under discussion), will Bell out and
leave unhappy Erin to stew in the political juice concocted by unscrupulous
ministers. . ' .
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
IRISH LANDLORD RELIEF BILL
Ukdku the celebrated Ashbourne Act
of 1885, the landlords of Ireland have
already received from the Imperial exchequer £10,000,000, and now Mr. Balfour proposes to tako from the same
source for n similar purpose another £38,-
000,000. One of the chief objections
raised by the Unionist party to the celebrated Home Rule Bill of Mr. Gladstone
was that it pledged the credit of the British taxpayer. The assertion was only
half a truth, and, therefore, worse than
a He, but it did its work in the unreasoning excitement of the general election. The Government of the present
Premier, Lord Salisbury, is the result.
It ts edifying to notice that tlio very
men who owe their election to the fact
that they posed as objectors to the principle of pledging Imperial funds for the
relief of Ireland, aud to make Home
Rule for that unfortunate country practicable, aro now not in the least unwilling to confer upon the landlords, at the
expense of the rest of the community
pecuniary relief to which they have absolutely no just claim, beyond that
which may bo equally brought forward
by any other citizens engaged in the
cultivation of the soil.
The bill is mischievous and of a predatory, kind as it propoaes to buy out a
small minority, "not for tho benefit of
the whole community," but for the benefit of the landlord clasB, or such of them
as have mndo themaelvea a public nuisance. It Ib worthy of note thnt the bill
Ib thoroughly Tory, inasmuch ns it is
not compulsory but optional ns regards
the landlord. Thus, if one tenant under a certain landlord wishes to buy hia
farm, the state, after ascertaining that
the landlord ia agreeable to the bargain,
will advance the money. But, should
the neighbor of this man alao desire to
buy the land ho tills, and should it happen that tho landlord of this second tenant has no wish to sell, poor Pat will
have to leave his farm, or else go on
paying rent.
The cool assurance with which Mr.
Balfour tells the world that he is merely
carrying out by thia measure a policy
which was in part proposed by the Land
Leaguers of 1880, and subsequently
adopted (in a measure) by tho Liberals
In 1884 and 1886, iB altogether misleading, and probably intentionally ao. In
both those instances it was a part of the
schemes that a national authority (or iu
other words nn Irish Parliament), sitting

year consists of carp, pike, perch, cat'

grades of fish, such as baaa, whitefish,
pickerel and maskinongs, have almost
entirely disappeared, and there iB only
one voice to attribute this state of tilings
to aawdust and mill rubbish, which,
after filling up the bays, are now spreading to the beds where fish spawn.
Saya the Toronto Jtfort: Of the 212
presbyteries in the Presbyterian church
of the United States, 122 have ao far'
voted on the question of revision of the
Westminster Confession, and eighty-
two of these, representing a large majority of the ministers and communicants of the Church, have declared iu
favor of revision. The vote as it now
stands, we are told, makes it practically
certain that there will be a majority of
about two to one of all the presbyteries
in favor of the proposed amendment of
the standards of the church. The Gen-
'eral Assembly, at which the matter will
be finally decided upon, will meet at
Saratoga next month.
Two German engineers, Bays nn exchange, propose to uae three continuous
platforms moving along the streets Bide
by side. The lowest of these platforms
is 4 inches high, and moves at a uniform
speed of 5 feet per second. Any ordinary pedestrian can, they state, mount
this platform from the ground without
difficulty, nnd from thia he cun -with
equal ease step on to a second platform
4 inches higher than the first, and moving twice as rapidly. Tho passenger
thus acquires a speed of 10 feet per
second, and, stepping on a third platform in the same way, he is carried at a
speed of 15 feet per second, or 10 miles
an hour, to his destination, where he
steps off in the inverse order.

This is fine fertile soil, chiefly prairie, and lies well. It
has become a maxim that cities grow wostward, and New West,
minster is proving no exception to the rulo. City lots west of
Edinburgh Street, along the North Arm road, have doubled in
value in less than a year, while acre tracts have, in the same
time, in some instances more than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to the Westerly City Boundary, is
completed, the North Arm will become the best suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expected by many that
the route of the Electric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
saction. 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 ono of tho best places for investment in tho District.   Prices are bound to advance rapidly.

WRITING AS A TKADE.
It's, Not Suoh a Bonanza *» pome
;Are Led to Beliqve.'
Common^SeBM Comments by Dr. Edwafcd
Egglcitoo—Of All the Learned Profw-
alom Literature Certainly la tbo
Moat Poorly Paid.
The phonoraenal sales of many recent
books, notably suoh as General Wallace's
"Ben Hut" and Mr. Bellamy's "Looking
Backward," have led the general public
to believe that tho business of authorship must be a profitable one. This Impression has been intensified by reports
of the great prices paid certain, writers
for their productions. Examples, in point
aro the handsome incomes attributed to
Mark Twain, W, D. Howells, Mrs. Burnett and othors of far less noto. Consequently the reoenfc statement ascribed
to Dr. Edward Eggleston, himself a successful writer, in disproof of this opinion
has been received with surprise. Dr.
Eggloston, aooording to a literary journal, holds tbat thore is not a single
American author who really makes an
income out of his books. Grubb street
hus become a tradition, hut the rewards
of the book-maker continue painfully
small. Dr. Eggleston writes to a Globe-
Democrat correspondent in repudiation
of the bald statemont thus attributed to
him, but in reiteration of thepoorflnan-
cial returns cf authorship: "Of course
I did not say nny thing so preposterous its tho words attributed to me
in the newspaper in point. This Is
onlx ono of many illustrations of tho
crying defect of Amoriean jour mil torn
at this time. Moro brains, moro precision, more mental training nro wanted in tbo re pur tor'.. Work. Of enterprising reporters there are enough, men
who will find out the secrets of the
North Pole, steal an interview with the
Popo or tbo Czar, or ponotnvt.. iu search
of news tn a lady's bedchamber. But
a decent report of a public assembly, or
of an address for whioh thi; orator did
not hiu.sc.h supply tho manuscript copy,
1 have not soon in a long timo. I wish
to fllo a general caveat that I am accountable* for no speeches put into my
mouth in this way. -What I did say beforo a Congressional committee was that
I did not know any author who had acquired a compoti'iioo by literary work
properly so-called. 1 proceeded to exclude school-books. Mr. Longfellow
was a professor and made good investments. Mr. Emerson was poor during
tho greater part of his life, 1 believe,
though he endured tbo drudgery, of
lycoiun lecturing, and it is said ho only
gained a competence iu did age by good
investments. Hawthorne was driven
todrudgo for a hook-maker like Goodrich and to sook public oJIIoob, Mr.
Lowell has bad other sources of income;
Mr. Howells has bad, let iih hopu. a
liberal editorial salary; Colon. I Higginson published a successful ccbool-buok.
My vory point is that authors aro
driven from the production of literature, 'properly so-called,' to drudgery
or sonsationalism by tho doalro to
iarn tbat suillciency which literature
doos not give. 'JL'tio newspaper in point
may or may not in its critical moments
class tho profitable juveniles of Miss Al*
cott, Mr. Trowbridgo and Olivor Optic
with literature properlysn-c.il 1 yd. lt is
amattof of opinion. Mr. AhUich's ad-
mirablo 'Story of a Bad Hoy,' which I
should call literature wlthoutaquestion
mark, did not reach tho tenth partof
thtf circulation attained by Boston
juveniles of a ilimsioi' texture."
"Let mo remark, I urn combating tho
notion vory prevalont among Congressmen that an author oF reputation has
openo.1 a bonanza. Of all tbo learned
professions, literature is the most poorly paid. Tbo loading authors must bo
oomparcil with leading lawyers, doctors
and ministers. If you compare a successful author with a country lawyer or
tho pastor ef a village churoh, you might
mako a fair .sliowing. But what author
ever hopes lo attain the income enjoyed,
say, by tho late Dr. Williird Parker or
by Mr. Eyurts? Tbo bodv of working
littoi'ateurs who mako pot-boilors for
the booksellers all thoir lives and aro
never known to tho nowspapors in such
a discussion as this, certainly havo no
hopo of moro than the livelihood of a
vory hum bio professional man.
■ "For many yoars I have been"accustomed to warn young men off from bo-
ginning a literary career, because so
few of tho literary workors over attain
acompL-.i'iicy.*'
Something Concerning the Acceptance ui
Jlfjcctloii of MHiiuiicriptii
It seems a pet idea with some authors
to trouble themselves over tbe oft-
mooted question: ''Are all the manuscripts which come to magazines carefully read?" Thero are some manuscripts tbat go unread, for tho reason that their un worthiness is apparent
from tho opening page and often from
the opening sentence. Or their unsuit-
abilHy will be revealed from their subject title, and it is then that the editorial decision Is made regardless of tho
literary merit which tho article may
possess. Tho most, attractive and best-
composed articles are oft-times the most
unstated for the magazine, to which
tbey arc submitted. And therein comes
the tact of correct application so often
lacking with authors. But of tho thousands ot manuscripts sent to tho magazines 'inch year, each ono receives examination, somo wore, somo less—precisely in proportion to tholr relative
merit, and of this authors can always
feol assured. Tho funny paragrapher
has magnified tho editor's waste basket
far beyond its normal proportions. In
roality, but few manuscripts are consigned thereto, and those which do find
their way therein richly deserve the interment. Reputable publications wlll
always return manuscripts whoro post-
ago Is inclosed, except in special Instances,'and '.hen the declaration Is always mado in some conspicuous place of
tho periodical. Authors, as a rule, aro
safer in tho hands of tho editor to-day
than they were twenty years ago. If
tho literary supply has increased, so has
tho demand.
Tbo fact Is, whothor authors believe
it or not, tbe editor is more anxious to
, discover merit in a manuscript than is
, tbo author to have him.   Novelty And
freshness are to-day the ruling elements
[in  litoiaturo, and the editor Is ever
1 watchful for either in all the man*
i uscripta which :omo under his eye.   If
[authors would devote moro time and
I caro to the composition of their man-
I uscrlpts and less to worrying over what
I became of thero after tbey reached the
■editorial desk literature and tho read-
ling public would be tho gainers.   No
|uthor need ever inveBt her soul with
Inxlety that her manuscript is not read.
In thoso days of sharp literary competition tho keenest outlook Is required of
kho editorial room, and a good roan-
wscrlpt or a bright idea need not search
%ng for a market.   Well-told stories
hro not so plentiful that even tho most
unpromising-looking manuscript can afford to bo overlooked.   An author oan
■always fool suro of ono point—that If ber
■manuscript is returned thero Ib some res-
I son for it, and tho cause ts gonorallynot
I very far off or obsouro, if search is only
i made for it.    Either tho production
' lacks merit or the wrong channel has
boon selected for. the material.   These
are generally tho two principal reasons.
Thero Is a world of common senso in
tbe remark mado by a famous author
to a young writer who was loudly complaining of editorial   unappreoiation:
"Don't waste so much timo blaming tho
editors; devote moro to seeing if any
rests upon you. '—Ladles' Home Journal.

Mayor  Brown and Aid. Bhtlea Return
From Portland — Baaulta  of
Their Trip.  _
Mayor Brown and Alderman Shiles
have returned from Portland very much
pleaaed with the results of their trip.
They were favored with fine weather,
but found thnt the season was fully as
late in the vicinity of Portland as in this
portion of British Columbia.
A representative of Tub Columbian
called to ascertain the results attained
by the trip. He spoke-briefly nnd to
the point as follows: "Our investigations at Portland resulted in giving ns
much important information on both
the bridge and ferry questions.
The river at Portland, it must be remembered, is only about half the width
of the Fraser opposite Westminster, consequently the conditions are different,
und much more so when population is
taken into consideration. Portland has
a population of 75,000 and East Portland
8,000, and yet until a year ago a ferry
was the only means of communication
between the two communities; about a
year ago a bridge costing $200,000 was
opened, but the ferry continues to run
just the same and does a good share .of
the business. The ferry steamer
is a large double-hull craft, worked
by cable, and has a capacity for
05 vehicles, besides which there
is ample room for as many foot passengers as may offer. This vessel is run by
a crew of two mon. Now, I believe we
can build a ferry on similar lines to the
Portland ferry, and at a' coat greatly
smaller than the amount estimated by
me Borne weeks ago, and it can be run nt
no greater cost than the K do K. The
ferry would make trips every half hour,
and have capacity for carrying from 12
to 20 vehicles, besides foot passengers.
This service would suffice until the
bridge scheme is worked out."
"How about ice in winter," asked the
Columbian man, "ferry steamers often
have to encounter trouble in this way?"
"That," said the mayor, "does not
stand in the way. We were informed at
Portland that the ice on the Willamette
was 6 inches thick last winter, and tho
ferry went through it with ease. Our
ferry will have more powerful engines
than the Portland boat, and, consequently, nothing need be feared on tho
score of ice. I feel certain a ferry can
be established and run at a small coat,
that would keep up connection with the
Surrey side all the year round and give
good satisfaction."
"What about the bridge?"
"Well, we will talk more about that
later on. The bridge at Portland cost
$200,000 aud is only half the length that
the Fraser bridge would require to be.
Nothing much can be said on the bridge
question until the matter has been gone
into more thoroughly, but we will take
steps very shortly in this direction."

Ladner's card, announcing himself as a

At the Oity Council to-night Mr.
R, Balfour, the well-known bridge builder, will submit an offer to the board to
bridge the Fraser river from a point opposite the pleasure grounds to Brownsville for the Bum of $150,000. Since Mr.
Balfour first took an interest in the project ho has been studying and figuring on
the plans and specifications, and bas
prepared a sketch of the bridge as he
proposes to build it. A representative
of The Columbian had a glimpse at
the picture this afternoon, and took the
following notes from the specifications:
Length of bridge from land to land,
2000 feet each, 3 spans of 150 feet each,
1 span of 118 feet, 0 spans of 100 feet
and one pivot draw of 232 feet. The
superstructure will be 18 feet above the
ordinary level of the river. The swing
will be supported by a stone pier 25 feet
in diameter, built on a wooden cylinder,
filled with cement, aud capable of resisting almost any pressure. The remaining piers, when in water over 15
feet in depth, will be built of wooden
cylinders filled with cement. The superstructure will be of seasoned fir,
planed and painted. Tho strength of
the bridgo when completed will be 8
times greater than any possiblo load
that can be put upon it.
Mr. Balfour will guarantee the bridge
for one year aftor it is ready for ubc,
and will alao agree to have it complete
by next spring.

Valuable Discoveries.
Capt. Robertson, of Moresby Island,
arrived in the city this morning and is
staying at the Colonial. Ho brought
with him some samples of shale and
sandstone which were discovered on
Wednesday laat. The sandstone is a
very superior article, and ought to prove
a valuable piece of property to Capt.
Robertson. Enquiries are already
being made for it for building
purposes in Vancouver aud Victoria.
Tlio shale was discovered nt low
water mark, and the samples, - brought
by Capt. Robertson are covered with
barnacles. Under this shale coal is supposed to lie, and several gentlemen having knowledge of coal mining feel certain
that a good vein will be struck on development. Capt. Robertson has not decided yet us to the action he will take
concerning the development of tho discovery, but with the possibility of such
a great mine of wealth in view ho will
hnrdly allow the matter of a few hundred
dollars to interfere with ascertaining tho
valuo of the prospects.

Anniversary Services.
The members of New Westminster
Lodge No. 3,1. O. O. F., attended divine
service nt the Methodist church yesterday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, the occasion being the 7lBt anniversary of the
order. The proceBBion was formed at
the Oddfellows' Hall and marched in
double rank to tlie Methodist church.
Tlie members were all dressed in full regalia and made a most handsome parade. The junior members lead the van,
while tho officers, under the Noble
Grand, Bro. R. F. Bonson, brought up
tho rear. On arriving at the church the
procession opened ranks and the officers
passed into the church first, followed by
the members according to seniority. The
members of the order present numbered
00. The sermon was preached by Rev.
J. II. White, who took his text from
Luke, 10th chap, and 20th verse; "Who
is my neighbor." The discourse waa a
thoroughly interesting one, and pointed
out in a graphic manner the assistance
man can lend to man. The church wub
well filled with a most appreciative con
gregation.
THAT IMPORTANT RAILWAY NEWS,
Editou Columbian—Sir:—That telegram received Saturday from Fairhaven
(very likely from Ben Douglas) to the
effect thnt a contract has been signed to
construct a wharf on tho south' side of
tho river below the Hatchery is of perhaps more moment to speculators In
that locality than to the average citizen
of New Westminster. Disinterested (t)
parties are good enough to at i 11 further
enlighten the anxious public as to the
intentions of this great company and
give it out (in strict confidence, etc.,)
that this is where the workshops for the
Southern Railway will bo located and
that the company will also run a railway
ferry from that point to Westminster.
We have had a great many reports of
what the Southern Railway Company
wbb about to do, but this iB the most
ridiculouB yet. A railway ferry crossing
from Westminster away up. the river
two or three miles would be a project fit
for a lunatic or a land boomer.
No, Mr. Editor, sensible people take
very little stock in these reports, as they
originate iu tlie fertile brains of certain
local magnates, who have no more
weight with Nelson Bennett in determining ou his plans (ns waB recently
shown by the manner in which lie
"busied up" that famous agreement between the City and the so-called Southern Railway), than a Bashi-Bazouk has
influence over the Czar of all the Bus-
sins. Fairhaven Is Bennett's city,
and there the workshops for the Fairhaven A Southern Railway, and all the
other railways that he has control of,
will go; and as for running the railway
ferry from the City up to the wharf to
be built for the discharge of rails, why
it is pure rot. Tho City of New Westminster has had too much humbugging
from the Southern Railway Co. already,
and, in compensation for the thousands
of dollars thrown away on them, will
have to be assured some substantial
benefits before a single foot of our valuable water-frontage or a dollar moro will
be voted thorn again. The Southern
Railway Company should go partners
with the Government in their redistribution business.

ho might hear what was going on iu the
former apartment. He alBo dug a
trench in the celler so as to get under
tlie dining-room for the purpose of hearing all conversation above. Last January he sent n blind telegram to himself
purporting to call him to Vancouver.
Ho pretended to go to that city, but
really went to A. G, Johnson's house.
Accompanied by Johnson he went to
his own house and both entered by way
of the cellar. Mrs. Lund was alone in
the house. They listened for
some time and heard someone
enter the houae. Lund went up stairs
and found Mrs. Lund and Hill sitting
room in front of tho fire talking. He
was afraid to take Johnson up stairs, as,
being a stranger he might make a noise.
Lund went up stairs and waited in tlie
closet next Hill's room until Hill cume
up to bed at about 12 o'clock. Mrs,
Lund followed about 10 minutes later.
She entered Hill's room and went into
his bed. Lund did not disturb them,
but went down stairs to where Johusou
was waiting. He directed Johnson
go up the back stairs while he went up
the front way. Witness entered Hill's
room followed by JohnBon. Mrs. Lund
came from Hill's bed townrds them, she
was en deshabille. Witnesa then called
Mr. Shephard, whose room was next to
witnesse s. Lund then went to the wash-
stand and produced a certain instrument
and accused Hill of tho crime. The
latter denied the charge. Witness did
not use the five-pound hammer ho had
carried up stairs to break open Hill's
door should he have found it locked.
Witness ordered Hill from the house
telling him thnt had he (witness) been
a good man, Hill might have been seriously injured. Mr. Shephard took the
hammer from witness. Witness waa
very much enraged nnd would have
thrown Hill's trunk out of the window
but that the latter said he would go
away at once. Witness charged his wife
with having made use of certain instruments which she denied. Witness afterwards found tho instrument iu a wnBh-stand drawer
Mrs. Lund admitted to.M'itnesB that she
had criminal intimacy with Hill five or
six times. After the discovery of the
pah in flagrante delicto, Johnson had a
conversatiqp with Mrs. Lund relating to
the affair. This conversation had a
conciliatory effect upon tho feelings of
witness nnd Mrs. Lund was told by him
that alio ootild go uji-otnirB. Sho did so
and entered Mr. Shepherd's room. That
gentleman asked her if she had anything to say to him. She told Mr. Shop-
herd thnt she had been criminally intimate with Hill on New Year's night.
Mr. Shepherd took down this evidence
iu writing. Mrs. Lund further admitted
to other occasions with Hill in the rooms
down stairs. She denied having cohabited with Hill that night although
found iu his bed. Mrs. Lund asked
witness, "Are you going to put me
through the court?" he replied, "Lena.
I don't know what to do with you."
Crosa-examined by Mr, Wilson.—Was
married at the age of 35; his wife being
18 veers old. A long courtship had preceded tho murriage, which was with the
consent of tho parents of the bride. Rev.
E, Robson married them. The bride
staid at home the night of the core-
uioiiy. She was brought down by her
father. The third night after the marriage, the mother-in-law was angry
witli witness for marrying so hurriedly,
There was a mutual agreement between
witness and his wife after the birth of
their fourth child that they should sleep
apart. ThiB was carried out bv both
pnrtiea, until Mrs. Lund, becoming tired
of the arrangement, induced her husband, by a strut ageni. to return to her,
Since the birth of the last child in November, 1888, the overtures, however,
had come from witness, and he had been
refused by hia wife on every occasion.
The trench which ho had dug to conduct
his observations waa nine or ten feet
long and about two feet deep. Hill had
never been ordered out of the house
when found .sitting and conversing with
Mrs. Lund. It was a common thing for
the household to gather in the sitting-
room, Hill and Shepherd being of the
party. Witness never had any stispi-
eion'of Shepherd, therefore had never
watched him. Until tlie 22nd of December witness had had the greatest confidence in his wife. After that he Bet
about verifying tho suspicious thon
aroused.
The case was proceeding as we went
to prcBS.
