An Uusuccessful Strike*
San Francisco, Mar. 16,—The second
week of the moulders' strike ended today, and a settlement seems as distant
as ever. This afternoon carpenters were
igaged in putting up and renovating
leold buildings at the Union Iron
Works, for the eastern moulders, who
are expected soon to take the places of
*lrt strikers, to live in. The men will
also be fed at the works. Atone o'clock

the unemployed liiW reached twenty
thousand dollars.    .,-

A World-Wide Tempest.
Ottawa, Mar. 16.—Professor Wiggins,
the Canadian weather prophet, predicts
a violent storm, which, he says, will be
felt all over the world, and will reach
Europe from the 17th to the 19th Inst.
ft will buret over this continent between
;he 21st and 22nd Inst.    Nothing short
of a miracle, he says, will prevent the
j___—..»—'all snipping that may be
of the harbor.    He will
who comes from Paisley, Ont., appears
to have been worse than was at first imagined. She was kept in a house in a
lonely part, of the city from 10 at night
until the next afternoon by three men,
who enticed her there. There Were
eight or nine in the room at different
times when the criminal assaults were
made. The girl was shamefully used
and badly injured. So far only three
men are under arrest, but the others are
known. Only three took part in the
outrage, and it is not improbable that
these may be sent to the gallows or sentenced to the penitentiary for life.
A Monster Strike.
London, March 14.—By the action of
the miner's Federation in resolving to inaugurate a general strike, owing to the
indifference of the masters to the demands of the men, upwards of 350,000
men are affected. Many mine owners
have become alarmed at the prospect of
a national strike and have already granted the demands of their employees, but
many others are still firm in their refusal to make the concessions asked. It
is probable, however, that the determined attitude of the miners throughout
the country will induce the obdurate
masters to come to terms or agree to a
satisfactory   compromise,   wheteby a
rike may be averted. "^
The Labor Conference.
London, March 14.—Notwithstanding
the compliments which are being paid
to Emperor William by tho press of all
sections of the empire upon the excellence of the choice of delegates selected
to sit in behalf of Germany in the Labor
Conference, there is a general feeling
that the conference will be barren of the
results which His Majesty expects and
for which the people have been led to
hope. The prompt acceptance by France
of the invitation to participate in the
conference was as gratifying as it was
unexpected, but the widespread and
powerful opposition to the Government's
action in accepting the invitation, and
the expressions against the representatives, which is being shown in the col-
ums of a majority of the French news-
{mpers, carries the conviction that a re-
axation of the tension between France
and Germany will not be one of the results of the deliberations of' the Conference.	
The Siberian Atrocities.
London, March 14.—Tho Times1 St,.
Peterburg correspondent notices the
compilation of an official report on the
late Siberian outrages. Tlie report disputes the truth of the stories of recent
circulation in London and Paris in that
connection. The correspondent, after
intimating that it is the purpose of the
Russian officials to ignore the startling
story of Siberian atrocities as Nihilistic
calumnies, says: "The Administrator of
prisons told me that the American delegates would make a great mistake if they
attempted to broach the Siberian scandals at the International Prison Congress. The same official, commenting
on George Keunan's expose of Russian
prison management, said: 'Its force was
weakened by reason of the fact that
Kennan haa his information from dissatisfied prisoners.' The Administrator
admitted the overcrowding of the prisons, but pleaded that the Government
was attempting a reform in that particular. Being pressed, the official admitted the substantial truth of the reports of Siberian outrages as published
in western Europe, but insisted that
Kennan aud others, in their writings,
created a purely Ideal Nihilist woman.
Discipline must bo preserved, and flog
ging as a punishment for the slapping
of an official's face should be enforced.
The struggle with tbe soldiers was caused
by the prisoners, armed with revolvers,
wounding several of the former." It is
thought, the correspondent adds, that
the trouble will result in the exlleB being
deprived of the privilege of retaining
their revolvers.
They Can Go  Ahead.
Washington, March 15.—The House
to-day concurred in the Senate amendment bill giving the Oregon and Washington Bridge Co. the .right to build
bridges across the Columbia River.
The Baseballer* Get There.
Philadklpuiv, Pa., March 16. A preliminary victory has been won by the
Baseball Brotherhood here, Judge Thayer having sustained the demurer against
granting an injunction to restrain Shortstop Hallnian from playing with any except the Philadelphia League Club.
Fighting the Floods.
New Orleans, La., March 15.—The
work of protection against the advancing
water is being actively pushed forward
to-day, and nn additional 4-foot levee Is
being built up in front of the city which,
with a large force of men at work, will
probably he completed Sunday night.
The water has not risen appreciably
since last night, and in spite of many
bad places in front, the draining machines are keeping the city well clear of
water.       	
Trouble In Afghanistan.
St. Petersburg., March 15.—Intelligence has been received from Cabnl, the
capital of Afghanistan, that a revolution
against the Ameer has broken out in
that country. Among those concerned
in It were a number of courtiers of the
Ameer. Several were captured by the
troops who remained loyal, and were
beheaded bv the|Ameer. Other courtiers
implicated m the revolt fled to Russian
territory. At last accounts, they, with
a number of other revoltorB. were
gathering on the frontier of Afghan
istan.       	
The French  Burmunded.
Paris, March 15.—The Steele says that
30,000 of King Dahomey's troops surround a French garrison at Kotonan, on
the coast of the Bight of Benign, nnd
that reinforcements for the French are
urgently needed. V
Dangerous Strikers.
Liverpool, March 15.—The dock laborers' strike has assumed such a menacing attitude that orders have been issued to the troops to be held hi readiness to suppress any demonstration. Tho
authorities have ordered the closing of
all inns.     |
More Strikers.
London, March 15.—Englnneers on
the West River joined the striking engineers on the Tees and Tyne for a reduction of hours. Tlie coal minors at
Yorkshire; Lancashire and Derbyshire
have struck work to-day for an advance
iu wages. A number of the masters
have already acceded to the demand,
Bismarck's Resignation.
Berlin, March 15.—The Bismarck
crisis, which was occasioned by the report that the chancellor intended to resign his office, is quiescent and will
not be renewed until after the Labor
Conference. Prince Bismarck assures
the diplomatic visitors to Berlin that
the Emperor and himself are in perfect
accord on the foreign policy of Germany,
and this suffices to allay any misgiving
as to harmonious action in relation to
international affairs.
A Terrible Outrage.
Toronto, March 14.—The outrage ot
the 17-year-old girl, Hattle McDonald
Imperial Parliament.
London, March 14.—In the House of
Commons this evening Sir James Ferguson, the Under Secretary of Foreign
Affairs, was interrogated as to the progress made in and the present position
of the negotiations looking to n settlement of the Behring Sea dispute. He
replied that he was compelled to decline
to sav anything on the subject until lie
should be able to communicate to the
House such information as might be
imparted without detriment to matters
at issue.
Sir George O. Trevylan moved that
Parliament shall henceforth rise at the
beginning of July, and that any business
unfinished or not reached by that time
shall be taken into consideration at a
winter session. The present arrangement, he said, was a survival of the days
of different social habits. There ought
to be two sessions so arranged as to give
the best part of the summer to a recess.
The motion was rejected bva vote of 173
to 100.
In the House of Lords Lord Salisbury
moved that the House approve the report of the Parnell Commission and
thank the judges for their just and impartial conduct.
Feeding the Hungry.
San Francisco, March 12.—All the
afternoon the citizens' committee for
the relief of the unemployed were busy
examining applicants for work, and
when the office closed 250 tickets entitling the holders to employment at
Golden Gate park had been issued,
making 000 tickets in all that have been
given out by the committee. Subscriptions received to-day swelled the amount
at the disposal of the committee to $1 ,-
200, which will insure work for about
200 more men, and the conunittoo hopes
to raise enough money lu addition to
put 1,000 men in all to work. The scene
about the committee quarters was a very
sad one when twenty-five dozen sandwiches, purchased with collections uf
money from men on the produce exchange, were issued to hungry applicants for work, and policemen with buckets of water passed down the line giving every man a drink. Later nn unknown man drove up with a wagon-lead
of biscuits and cheese, and sandwiches
were again dispensed. A batch of meal
tickets, 500 in number, were given the
committee to-day by some firm which
heretofore supplied several hundred.
From  the North.
The steamship Geo. W. Elder arrived
at Port Townsend, Wednesday, from
Alaska, after a stormy trip, in which
much snow and bad weather prevailed.
Among the passengers were Mr. Perkins, manager of the Troadwell mine,
aud Mr. .1. Bernhardt, of Hamburg,

hard t intends to thoroughly prospect

conclusion, to see if there is a mine or
not. The Treadwell milt of 240 stamps
has not beeu working more than 30 to 40
stamps for the past two months, us the
cold weather has cut off the water supply und business generally is stagnant.
At Mr. Duncan's mission, at New Met-
lakahtla, the epidemic of "La Grippe"
has been severo among the Indians,
numbers of them dying from its effects.
Two rather severe shocks of earthquake

no damage ensued. A cannery is in

On the notice paper Mr, Robson has
the following notice: "Whereas the
waters of the Fraser River are in several places in the New Westminster
District making alarming and destructive inroads in the banks, not only with
great damage to the property of settlors,
and in some instances threatening to
change the course of the river altogether,
but seriously impairing navigation by
the formation of bars of the silt thus
carried down by the stream; be it resolved that a respectful address be presented to the Lieutenant-Governor, requesting that the Dominion Government may be moved to adopt such a
measure as may be deemed the best
protection for property and the preservation of the navigation of the important waterway in question."

ALASKA SALMON CANNERIES.
The   1'iu'k Will   Be Considerably loss
This Year tltnu Last.
Sydney 8. Smith, of San Francisco,
was a passenger for Alaska on Tuesday
on the steamer City of Topeka. Ho is
lurgely .interested in that territory,
where he will remain during tlie summer. Mr. Smith is a very pleasant and
agreeable young man, and is enthusiastic on the subject of Alaska; lie is general superintendent nnd manager of the
large establishment culled the Alaska
Salmon Packing and Fur Company, belonging lo tlie Cutting canning firm, of
San Francisco, and situated nt Loring.
This is the largest salmon packing house
In Alaska, nnd put out 27,000 cases last
year. Tho total output of the coast was
1,700,000 cases, of which 700,000 came
from Alaskan streams.
Mr. Smith sayB there will be very few
new canneries established in Alaska this
year; that which Is to be built by
Messrs. Macauley & Calbreath,200 miles
north of Loring, is the only new one
that is going to bo put in in that section
of the territory. The cannery belonging
to A. W. Berry, which was burned lust
fall, will not be rebuilt; this cannery
wus situated ut Tongas Narrows, twenty
miles south of Loring. This was quite
a large house, and since it has gone out
of business the other packing houses in
that vicinity will enjoy a bettor trade,
"The puck this year," said Mr. Smith,
"will be considerably less than it was
lust year. The run will doubtless be a
little less, and besides this there is a
sort of mutual understanding among the
cannerymeu that tho output be lessened
in order to maintain the price; this 'understanding' that I speak of does not
havo the force of a 'trust,' but is only a
desire to keep the pack at such an
amount that the competition which has
been quite brisk during tho past year,
will not force the price down to such a
figure that It will not be profitable."
"'The season opens the first of Juno,
but preparations for tho summer's work
havo already begun; mon and supplies
are beiug sent up by every steamer, and
50 to 150 Chinese will bo sent to every
packing house. Heretofore the salmon
packing business hus been tlie most important and profitable of any of the
Alaskan industries, but if competition
should be kept up as it was carried on
last year the profits would be materially
tenoned.   A now law preventing tho
damming of streams affects us, and is a
wholesome thing for the whole coast, as
it allows the fish to pass up the rivers
without being obstructed. There is an
impression that the salmon are practically cleaned out of these streams once
every four years, and there is no doubt
that the small streams can be fished out
entirely if a Bteady run is made upon
them for several years.
There is an interesting fact in regard
to the decrease in the Columbia River
catch; three years ago the output of that
river wae 700,000 cases, while last year
it was but little more than 300,000 cases.
The Fishermen's Union has established
the price for this year'scatch at $1.25 for
each fish, and this, with other actual
expense of the canneries, will put an actual cost of of $5.65 on each case, which
holds three fishes. The salmon are bo
scarce that the fishermen cannot make
money catching them for less than the
price set, There Beems to be some doubt
whether the Columbia River canneries
will be operated at all thiB year on account of these expenses; the cannery-
men think, however, that the union will
break up Boon and that they will then
be able to get the fish for a less price
than the union has set.
. The Pacific Coast Steamship Company
iB making great preparations for this
Bummer's Alaskan trade.- Four of their
steamers will be put on that route among '
them the commodious packet The Queen,
and I am informed hundreds of excursion tickets have already been sold
throughout the East. The new company—The Puget Sound and Alaska-
may also put on a lino of steamers, but
I think they are going on too late to get
their proportion of the trade, exceptdnr-
Ing the excursion season."
"What effect will the new lease have
on-AlaBkan trade?" was asked.
"It will have a tendency to make the
old Alaska company go more extensively
into the salmon business. ThiB company is already extensively interested in
other industries—In fact the seal industry was only a small part of its business.
The Alaska company owns the largest
salmon cannery In the world, situated at
Karlux. It also retains the Russian
lease, but this not so good as the American lease; the waters covered by the
Russian lease produce less seals
than the American, and they
also are of a <■ poorer quality.
There iB a general impression that
the new company has paid too high
a price for the lease, but of course that
is something its members understand
better than wedo. Onethingiscertain,
the average price that sealskins have
been bringing in London for the past
few years will not justify the new company in catching seals for the market.
Some of the members of the new coni-
iany claim that 100,000 seals will be
illed yearly, but those familar with the
fisheries say that the sea will be depleted within a few years if so many are
taken out. The Alaska Company was
allowed to kill only 60,000, and it is
claimed that even at this rate the rookeries are becoming thinned out, There
is no doubt that the price of sealskin
Bacques, etc., will be considerably higher
this year than they were last year.'r
"A bill that has recently passed the
United States Senate," continued Mr.
Smith, "und is known as the Piatt Bill,
is of great importance to that section. It
provides that each settler may take 160
acres of hind in that territory at $2.60 an
acre. It also provides for a modification
of existing land laws.
"Alaska is now governed by tho laws
of Oregon, which, considering the essential difference of climate and area, and
of resources, are wholly inadequate for
the settlement and development of the
territorv. So long as a man cannot preempt a homestead nor buy a foot ot land,
except under tlie expensive mining
laws, there can bo no settlement nor
improvement. Under the present law
there can be no exportation of the
abundant timber nor manufacture of
the same in the territory. In short we
want Alaska to be accorded the privileges granted other western territories,
and those conditions which will invite
capitalists and guarantee a home to poor
men. When it Ib possible to take up
160 acres of land at $2.60 per acre you
will hear more of Alaska's resources."
Mr. Smith Ib enthusiastic over the
future of the great northwestern territory, which ho says, is destined' to be-
como one of the most productive of all
the states, iu the variety of its products.
Tho Pioneer Business Association, which
was organized for the purpose of advertising Alaska's resources in u legitimate
way, iB, in the opinion of Mr. Smith, a
grand thing for the territory. This association made up a purse a short time
ago and sent Miner M. Bruce us a delegate to Washington to urge legislation
in behalf of the long-neglected territory.

Proposed Government  Telegraphs.
Washington, March 14.—A new proposition in connection with the proposed
establishment of a Government postal
telegraph system was made to the House
Committee on Post Offices and Post
Roads to-day by Mr. J. L. Seymour, a
member of the New York Stock Exchange. Mr. Seymour stated that he
represented a number of well known
capitalists who were willing to build
Hues and maintain a postal telegraph
system under Government supervision
iu accordance with the provisions of the
Postmaster-General's Bill, or to operate
them on a uniform 25 cent rate. The
moans by which the gentlemen represented by himself hoped to make the
undertaking a success were by what is
known us the Patten Multiplex Telegraph System, which, he said, has
been iu successful operation in New
York and Philadelphia for the past six
months, the Syndicate proposed to
build und maintain the linos needed, to
furnish operators, power and stationery,
and to have the right to build and be
protected in constructing lines over all
postal roads. They asked to be exempt
from Federal nnd State taxation. In
cities where post offices were cramped
for want of room. The Syndicate proposed to furnish its own offices. It was
desired to take a contract with the Government for 15 years with the privilege
of ronewal, unless the Government
would take the lines at the end of that
time ut a value to be appraised by experts. Mr. Seymour said that he would
rather not give the names of his associates in the scheme, but he assured the
committee that they were all well-known
throughout the commercial world. They
were willing to givo a bond of $100,000 as
a guarantee that they would carry out
any contract with the Government, The
syndicate expected, as stated, to be allowed to do a private business outside
of the Government work. Mr. Seymour
claimed that had the Western Union
used the Patten system last year Its expense would have beeu $5,000,000 instead of $16,000,000.
Mr. JarvlB Patten, of New York, the
inventor of the system referred to by
Mr, Seymour, described it to the committee. By it the carrying capacity of
one wiro was equal to 8 or even 12 wires
under the present Morse system. To
maintain the lines under the Patten
system would cost about 76 percent, less
than under tho present system.
Mr. Seymour stated that it was proposed to lease wires to newspapers at
almost nominal rates and to reduce press
rateB about 33 per cent. To establish
tho system under the provisions of the
PoBtmastcr-Goneral'B Bill would cost, he
bolioved, about $7,000,009. A complote
system covering tho entire country would
cost $25,000,000.

WESTMINSTER FIRST.
In natural advantages of site and location, from a trade aspect—saying noth.
ing at present of her well known and
generally acknowledged salubriousneis
and beauty of situation and surroundings—Westminster stands easily first in
the Province, and in the very front rank
compared with the most favored cities
in these respects that might be men'
tioned. It is the knowledge of this fact
—the! unavoidable and inbred conviction that Westminster is a city among a
thousand in natural advantages and certain prospects—that gives her citizens
that unshaken confidence in her future,
bordering upon enthusiasm, for which
they aro noted. As the city, and its
solid standing, advantages and prospects, begin to.be known and appreciated by the outside world, the same confidence so universal at home has accompanied that knowledge, and in the
monetary markets of the continent, as
exemplied by our last sale of city bonds,
Westminster stands first in the Province.
ThiB practical tribute to our standing
abroad is a most gratifying proof of faith
by works, that cannot fail to bring forth
fruit by way of enhancing our credit still
further.
Speaking of the proof of faith, our own
citizens—of late yeara especially, and at
no time like the present—are giving in-
dubitable evidence of the confidence that
is in them, by the enterprise, public and
private, apparent on every hand. During the last two or three years the renaissance may be said to have begun in ear-
nest, last year particularly being a season of greatly increased activity in civic
ob well as private enterprise, the stimulating effects of which will not soon he
lost. A mere glance will suffice to con.
vince anyone that the season just opening will excel the past year, in the
amount, variety and - magnitude of its
public and private enterprises and improvements, and activity and volume of
general buslnesB, by fully as much, if
not more, than it exceeded the record
of any preceding year. Tho year will
witneBB, in the first place, the completion
of the first section of the Southern Railway and its connection, by ferry at
least, with this city; partial construction of tlie Coquitlam Warer WorkB
system, involving a large outlay within
the city; extensive street and park improvements ; active operations on a new
electric light system; an electric street
railway} nn electric tramway lo connect
this city and Vancouver; probably tho
commencement of operations on the
short line railway between thiB city and
Vancouver; the completion and operation of tho extensive Ross-McLaren sawmills—the largest iu the Province—in
the neighborhood; the completion and
operation of the largely extended Brunette sawmillsestablishinent; important
improvements and largely increased operations of the extensive R. 0. P. M.
Mills; the construction of one or two
large new sawmills near the city; the
' erection of a $20,000 court house in the
city, and improvements to other public
Institutions, besides an immense amount
of private improvements and building
operations, both business and residential,
that cannot be computed at present,
hut will exceed the most sanguine expectations and leave even the record of
last yoar far in the background.
From the above hasty aud Incomplete
sketch of the various enterprises and
operations on foot and to he inaugurated, in and about the Koyal City, it will
bo seen that the confidence of the citizens and of outsiders is not only amply
justified, but is practically manifested in
every direction as well. The outlook is
certainly encouraging, nnd well fitted to
increase the present confidence and
stimulate to further and increased efforts to improve aud supplement our
enviable natural advantages in every
possible way. It is earnestly to be hoped
that such may be the effect produced
for confidence, without Unit "eternal
vigilance" which is the price of liberty,
and of almost all other things of value in
both tho material nnd moral sphores,
and without a constant alert, and vigorous turning to account of every opportunity—anil even making opportunities
where necessary—so far from being a
congratulatory and hopeful indication,
becomes tho sure precursor of t decay,
But we are persuaded better things of
the Royal City. Nevertheless, she will
have to hustle, or suffer the ignominy
nnd loss of being overhanletl by some of
the ambitious and plodding, if not so
highly favored, tortoises on her truck.
THE STREET PAVING PROBLEM.
Under tho new by-law which tho
Council will shortly introduce, and
which it is reasonably certain the ratepayers will endorse, Columbia and
portion of Front street, it is proposed,
will be macadamized, a necessary part
of the scheme being tho purchasing of a
stone crushing machine by the city.
The idea is an excellent one, and the
Mayor and Aldermen should receive the
support of tlie ratepayers In carrying
out this sensible and eminently practical suggestion. As every ore knows, any
amount of cheap rock can be furnished
to keep the crusher grinding until there
should be a supply of macadam for every
street in tlie city, and the machine and
necessary accompaniments, if the cost
should bo In tho neighborhood of $4,000,
as estimated, would repay the expenditure for the purpose many times over in
the courso of tho next two or three
years, in the money saved in repairs, as
well as in the Infinitely better streets,
with all the advantages of increased
value in property and enhanced prestige
of the city accruing. The present condition of our streets—their condition at
tho worst season of the year, and at tho
best, and all the year round, in fact—
and the experience of successive councils
and boards of works for years past, is
sufficient to convince anyone acquainted
with the case and giving the subject
reasonable consideration, that nothing
like satisfaction con be obtained, especially in view of the constantly and rapid-
edly increasing traffic which is the
natural result of the Bteady and rapid
growth of the city,from the present primitive method of surfacing the streets with
loam or gravel. A «n'.l macadamized
street, it will be agreed on all hands,
will be an immense Improvement on the
existing order of things, and the acquirement by the city of a stone crusher is
the shortest and cheapest way to accomplishing that end.
While macadam will do us for some
years, on most of tbe streets, the swift
and sure and continually accelerated
rate at which we are approaching the
dimensions and constitution of a modern
city, in all respects, will Boon make it
imperative to consider the paving question with respect to the principal traffic
streets at any rate. ThiB is a question
that has all the dignity and' tontalinng-
ness of an unsolved problem, definitely
speaking, end many elties on the continent and elsewhere, tn addition toend-
i discussion on the subject, ore trying
to solve the problem in the most practical way—by experiment; and by this
means, if the question has not been finally settled, the strong and the weak
points of the different sorts of paving
have been pretty accurntelyascertained.
As furnishing interesting and valuable
Information on the general subject under
discussion some particulars given by
Captain Greene, the eminent engineer,
in the course of a paper on "TheCon-
" structlonand Maintenance of Streets,"
read before the Commonwealth Club of
New York, and as summarized in an exchange, will be of interest. Drawing attention to the difference between a good
and a bad road, Captain Greene endeavors to reduce it to dollars and cents. It
costs more to to haul a load along a bad
road than along a good one—coBts more
—but it is curiously intermingled with
a dull dropping sound at intervals.
That I guesB is the falling of the rents
asked for the unoccupied stores and
houses."
It is surprising to learn, says an exchange, that the number of books published lost year in both England and1
the United States was much smaller
than m the previous year. In the former
country the decrease in the number of
new books and new editions was over
five hundred, and iu the United States
it was over six hundred. Inboththere
wob« large increase in the number of
works of fiction published, but iu almost
all other departments there was a falling
No explanation is offered for this
state of affairs, but it is possible that the
love of light literature is destroying the
taste for more solid reading, and if this
be so it iB much to be regretted.

inspection of railroads with the careless- LiberalB( the party by the aid of which
ness with regard to streets. Railroads
undergo constant repair, but street pavements, once laid, are left to batter the
vehicles, and the vehicles in turn to
pound the pavements, until they finally
become unendurable and are entirely
removed.
It is now admitted universally that
for the heavy traffic of cities the street
pavement Bhould be laid on a solid foundation. Whatever the wearing surface may
be, it should be laid on a solid foundation of hydraulic cement and broken
stone. Tlie wearing surface can readily
be repaired from time to time as worn
out, but the substratum must be of such
a character as to be permanent. With
regard to the top surface, wood Is found
to be the least durable, but also the
least noisy; the easiest for horses, but
also the most unhealthy. In the joints
of the wood blocks the street filth lodges
and accumulates as well as iu tho blocks
themselves, making a foul slime which
in wet weather we carry Into our houses
on our clothes, and in dry weather is
blown into our windows and into our
lungs in the form of unhealthy dust.
Besides its healthfulness, the great argument for an uaplinH   wearing ouifuuu In
that while it gives easy hauling and is
fairly good for the team, it is capable
also of ready and immediate repair. In
nothing is the old provdrb, "A stitch in
" time saves nine,"more applicable than
with regard to the repair of streets. In
cities where the use of asphalt is best
understood, a light repairing outfit is
constantly at work, bo that as soon as
there is any sign of wear it may be immediately made good.
Statistics which have been taken in
the four great cities of London,' New
York, Paris and Berlin show the following results as to construction and maintenance of the three usual forms of
pavements:

From this it appears that a
pavement, which means a pavement of
granite blocks each presenting about a
quarter of a square foot of surface laid
on a solid bed of concrete, costs the most
to put down, but is decidedly the cheapest when maintenance is considered.
For purely business streets no doubt this
pavement has advantages, particularly
where there is a constant and heavy
traffic, but the asphalt pavement for
general and ordinary purposes would
appear to be hard to beat. *

Rudolph de Gulhery, a teacher of Pet-

female pupils. He was secured at his
home, and asked leave to get ready for
his Journey to gaol. While out of sight
of tho officer he took a dose of strychnine, and died on hiB way to prison. He
left a memorandum saying that he was
not guilty, but that ho preferred death

SONG  BIRDS.
0 singing birds I What happy wort*
Are la your sweet, wild song I
What thrilling notes your tiny throats
In melody prolong 1
Iq darkest days tbe softest lays
You over sweetest sing,
And through the air In anisic ran
With perfect cadence ring.
0 happy birds, your tuneful words
Pour forth so full, so free,
Your rarest trill each heart to thrill
As swift tho gay notes flee I
Unwritten words sing ye, sweet birds,
Unwritten muslo, too;
Nature's own child, your wood-notes wild
To harmony are true.
Oould we but know the thoughts that flow
Along that liquid strain,
That charm the ear with lack of fear,
We might a lesson gain
From each song bird whose notes are heard
So musical and clear;
Whose magic voice bids souls rejoioe,
And fills our heart with cheer.

AN INNOCENT BUBGLAB.
Why
Hannah Ib Still Swelling
tor the Bonds..
"Now do lie still, Aunt Martha, and
.lon't fret and worry all day and all
night. Ain't It bad enough to be all
.utlies and pains, but you must add
.rotting to them?"
The speaker was a tall, bony woman
of some forty-five or fifty years, with a
hard faco, that expressed far more annoyance than sympathy as she shook up
ilio pillows and arranged the oovers of
the bed where an older woman lay. Not
» vorj «l_L tronmii, but. ono wlioso gray
hairs and wrinkled cheeks told of many
years' sojourn in the world,
"Bertha!" she said, in a low, plaintive
voiee.   "I want Borthal"
"How many times have 1 told vou
that Bertha can't be found?"
"She's down-stairs,"
"Well, If it wouldn't try the patience
of a saint to hear youl Can't you remember, Aunt Martha? Bertha ran
kway two years ago with that painting
chap that said his name was Thornton,
(toodnessknows whether it was or not,
Hut he made love to Bertha whilo he
was painting her picture. I told you no
.rood would como of letting her rig her-
idf out like a play actress, and stand
up for hours, a-smirking and smiling,
while he took her pioture and talked
,j.oft nonsense to her, He ran away
with her and that was the end of It.
Can't you remember?"
"Yes, 1 remember, fie wrote to me,
und he sent me a copy of the marriage
lines, bo I'd know he loved her true and
faithful. I remember It all, Hannah-
And I was mad because they'd deoeived
ine, and wrote baok an angry letter.
Hut I did not know how I should miss
her pretty face and sweet voice. Sho
was so young, too, Hannah. Only sixteen! Not more than a childl I was
too hard, too hard. But she is here,
now.   Let her come to me.
All this wis utterod in tho faint, gasping voice of ono whose journey of life
was fast drawing to a close. Bub there
was no pity in tho hard faao, no tender-
ness In the harsh voioo of her nieuo.
"I tell you sho is not bore!" tthosald,
roughly, "and I'm tired of your otornal
whining for her.   Go to sleep!"
"I can't sloop! I never sleep now!
And I heard her. I heard Bertha down*
atairs."
"I wonder, now, if she did hoar her,"
Hannah muttered, uneasily. "It's bad
luck to cross the dying. If she would
only tell mo whore she's put hor money,
.lix thousand dollars in United States
bonds, Lawyer Brown says he's bought
for her, and never sold one; and they're
' tn the house, too. I've ransacked as
much as I dare, but she sleeps so little
that I can't do much in this room. And
there's the doctor coming every day, so
1 daren't mako hor mad, or she'll send
and change her will."
Partly muttering, partly thinking all
this, the woman tidied tho room for tho
night and sot the lamp on tho hearth
Ijofore she went to her own room. Sitting up to watch was hard work, and
Hannah Graves kept a little stimulant
whoro sho could drink unobserved. To
do ber justice, she seldom took much,
and nodded in tho arm-chair beside the
sick-bed protty faithfully. But on this
night she was troubled with an uneasy
-Onsoience and exceeded her usual allowance, falling Into a deep sleep In hor
jwn room, where she had only intended
to change her dress for a loose wrapper.
Earlier in the evening, bofuro tho
oarly darkness of a December night had
closed in, there had been a suppliant at
the door, whoso low, swoet voice had
vainly pleaded for admission. The
granddaughter who had run away with
tho artist had heard from a farmer, who
wont weekly to the city, of her grandmother's illness, and had hoped for ono
word of forgiveness.
Tho farmer was a kindly man, who
had before carried tidings from the cottage to tho elty "flat," where Marous
Thornton and bin young wife lived, as
poor people in great cities so often live,
struggling bravely for daily bread, but
sweetening the toil by strong mutual
love.
Some time in the future tho littlo wlfo
was sure the paintings, that were to her
like dreams of fairyland, would bring
to her husband wealth and fame. Sho
trusted him utterly, believing his
j-idiius unequaled tn the wide world's
array of artists. And while she waited
for that genius to bo recognized sho
was well content to take in sewing, to
-lave and economize what he earned by
tho occasional salo of a small picture or
tho filling of an order to decorate some
j lull man's panels or walls. Thoy woro
often compelled to dine on porridge, but
Llioy ate it cheerfully, and furnished the
sauce by building grand castles in tho
itir, as they handled thoir pewter spoons,
There was no thought of her grandmother's six thousand dollars in Bortha
Thornton's mind as sho thankfully ao-
iii-ptod tbo farmer's offer to tako her
Ituina to see the old lady before she
died. Just ono word of forgiveness was
All sho craved, for sho knew sho had
been undutiful and ungrateful when she
left her homo in secret to folio." her
lover's fortunes. She was not awaro
that Hannah Graves had quietly burned,
unopened, the many letters sho had
written begging forgiveness, but that
they were all unanswered convinced her
that her grandmother was still angry.
She was a timid little woman, easily
led, easily frightened, and Hannah
Gravos bad kept hor outsido tho door
without ditiloulty, whoro tho farmer loft
her to drive to his own borne.
She begged in vain to sue hor grandmother, her sweet voioo raised in her
earnestness till it must havo penetrated
to the sick-room, from which she was so
resolutely shut out.
As the door dosed upon hei, and she
hoard tho heavy bolt drawn, It flashod
. upon her for tho first timo that sho bad
made no provision for hor night's
shelter. Jt waa winter weather, but not
i intensely cold, and her droBS waB warm,
but It was not a pleasant prospect to
think of wandering about all night till
she oould tako tho olty train oarly in
the morning.
She shivered aa she drew ber shawl
closer and listened to tho sounds indoors that told her how carefully every
door and window Was being barred
against her. The porch was deep and
Hholterod from the wind, and when sho
wearied of walking up and down she
crouched In a corner to rest, Just ovr
her bead wal tho window of her grandmother's room, and Hannah, sotting this
window a orack open for tho night, lot
out tho sound of her own harsh voice.
Just a murmur of her grandmother's
faint utterance reached Bertha as she
listened intently, but what Hannah
daid camo to her clearly and distinctly.
It oonvinoed ber that the story she had
told of the old lady's continued anger
was untrue, and the threat that the sight
of her would have fatal results another
fiction.
"She wants me! lam sure she will
forgive me!" Bertha thought, as the
faint acoenta reached her, convoying no
words, but pleading in every tone. "I
will see her!"
Again she listened intently, until she
was sure by the silence that the invalid
was alone. She was young, and light,
and country bred. It was no great feat
to scramble by the twisted vines on the
porch pillars to its roof, and gain the
window. Very oautiously the sash was
raised, the muslin curtain pushed aside,
and by the dim light Bertha could see
that tbe only occupant of the room waB
the old woman on the bed, who murmured incessantly:
"Ob, Berthal I was too hard, dear
child! Come to your old grannie before
she dies!"
Softly still, for Hannah mlghtbenear,
Bertha crept over the window-Bill Into
the room, and to the door. This she
looked, whispering to herself:
"I will speak to grannie, and if anybody tries to put me out she must first
break the door in."
But there was no sound In any other
part of the houso as she drew near the
Invalid, whoso large, eager eyes had by
that timo discovered her,
"Berthal You bavo como, Bertha!"
"Yes, grannie, dear, dear grannie,"
said Bortha, caressing her tenderly, "I
am here."
"But you must not stay. Hannah will
kill you. Sho will think you want the
money."
"Oh, grannie, never mind money now.
Only say you lorgive mo for leaving
you."
"With all my heart, dear child. God
bless you ever, and bless the man you
love if ho is good to you."
"Ho is, grannie, the kindest, best
husband in the world. He shall oome
to you to-morrow."
"Yos, dearl yes! But now liBten. Go
to the clothes press and pull out the
lower drawer. Quick! Now," as Bortha
oboyed, "do you boo on the floor, undoi*
noath where the drawer was, a package,
sewed up in strong muslin? Bring that
to me, and put the drawer baok."
Bortha obeyed, and stood again beside
tho bod.
"Put it in your bosom. Button your
dress over it. So!" said hor grandmother, eagerly watohlng her follow hor
instructions. "Don't toll Hannah. Don't
tell anybody but your husband. Promise me!"
"I promise, grannie."
"It is my savings for yoars; saved for
you before I made that oruol will. It
is yours, yours, darling. Hannah will
havo tho cottage and every thing elso,
because I have not taken tho will away
from Mr. Brown. Berth*i, go away, dear,
now. Go. But como to-morrow with
your husband to protect you. Go, dear.
Hannah may como. Good-night. Goodnight.   God bless you, BOt'tlm."
Out again in tho night air, reluctant
as she wan to go, Bortha sped away to
tho railway station, two miles away.
Sho had unlocked tho door and drawn
tlm window down bofuro sho loft tho
houso, and hurried on, only anxious to
gain hor homo and bring her husband
to raeoivo tho blessing already bus towed
on herself.
Thero was a train at daybreak, and the
station waa warm and light, but tbe
hours dragged slowly, until sho was on
hor way to tho city.
Tho day-dawn wakened Hannah from
her.hoavy sloop, and, conscinnco-striok-
en, Bhe hurried to her aunt. Nothing,
lo hor eyes, had been, disturbed in tho
room, no confusion told of tho midnight
visitor, bu t the form on tho bed was rigid
and pulseless, and no voice answered her
frightened call.
It was too late for any spoken words of
forgivonosswhoni-Iai-cusTborntonstood
with hiB wife besido tbe still, cold
form, bub Bortha know that she was pardoned, and she kept her promise made
to the doad.
Hannah Graves lives in tbo oottage
sho inherited, and has periodical attacks
of searching for the six thousand dollars in bonds, but she lias never found
them, although sho truthfully declares
"there's not one inoh of the oottage
that has not been ransackod."—Anna

GIGANTIC  WORMS.
They Are Natives of Australia, and at
Least Six Feet Long.
The work of earth-worms In the
operations of naturo is a very important ono. Darwin haa shown ut that
they aro constantly occupied in making
tho earth more mellow by perforating it
with their galleries, and that tbey enrich It by collecting in these subterranean passages earth that has been
subjected to ohange in their Intestines,
and also leaves, which have fallen to
the ground and are dragged Into their
retreats.
But if these little beings ean accomplish such wonders it would be interesting to know whether the Megascolides
Australia, an earth-worm of Australia,
has a like mission. This creature is of
the size of an ordinary adder, and at least
six foot long. A writer in La Naturo
says that it is usually to be (found on
tho banks bordoring small rivers,
though it occasionally seeks the open
country, where one may como upon It
by pulling up a stump or upturning the
earth.
It is not an easy matter to drag this
gigantic worm from tbe winding galleries which form Its retreat. It glides
about tho sinuous passages with great
rapidity, inflating its anterior and posterior extremitios at will, and thus bracing itself against the walls, which it
renders slimy by a soorotlon from its
own body.
I to moist substance Blips easily through
tho hands which would retrain it, and
whon onco fastened to the adhesive walls
of its home it ian only be removed by
breaking its length in two.
This giant among worniB lives a comparatively peaceful life, Bincelts physical features furnish admirable defense
against such enemies as it might naturally have. Its body exhales a strong
odor similar to that of creosote, and it
bas tho power of ejeotlng, to a distance
of several inches, jots of milky fluid.
Moreover, Its life is entirely a subterranean ono, and thus it is secure from
the attacks of carnivorous animals.
Naturalists, ol course, have an interest In its capture, and the aborigines
use the oily fluid into which the dead
body of the creature resolves itself J as a
remedy for" rheumatism, but it Is not
very actively sought. When suoh
worms are once dragged from beneath
the surface, bowover, they lose tbo
agiltty which, Antmus-like, they seem
to gain from contact with the earth,
and He absolutely passive, making no
attempt to move.
A Matter of Taste.
"If thar's any thing I do just natchol-
lydoosplse it's ono o' those nasty soe-
gars," said an Arkansas Woman of delicate sensibilities, "Tho smell of ono
of 'em will turn my stummick quiokor'n
any thing I know off but you take a
right good pipe now, one that's been
smoked a year or two 'till it's well seasoned, an' 1 tell ye It's ploasantan'
wbolcBome to smell, but I don't want no
seegara smoked 'round MB," '
LONDON BANK TELLERS.
Exptrts la Handling Monty-Ftatons Ol
the English System.
A London bank teller, says the Boston Commercial-Bulletin, always experiences a feeling of relief when he finds
his money correct at the close of Friday's work, and this feeling is usually
shared In by the rest of the staff, who
can not leave the hank until he either
discovers his error or satisfies himself
as to the actual shortage. The great
bulk of the shortages made across bank
counters in England are believed to occur on that day.
Next In order of bad days for the teller, or cashier, as he is designated in
London, comes Saturday, but there the
bad luck Is intelligible. Saturday is
wages day, and no sooner has the teller
filled his till and loaded up his shelves
with silver in £5 and £10 bags than the
day's work sets in like a flood. Until
twelve o'clock he la paying away with
both hands; after that hour, if he is a
receiving clerk as well, be begins to receive heavily, for Saturday is also the
last day ot the week, and every one
elects that tbe bank should receive his
deposits rather than that he should keep
them In his own less secure custody over
Sunday.
In beginning work on Saturday the
London toller faces an open mahogany
countor, of which the portion controlled
by ills desk is probably six feet long by
three feet wide. He likes to have a
good, square view of his customer, and
it Is one or the canons of British bank*
ing that the oyfis of the staff shall com*
maud the counter. With suoh an open
counter the chief olerk Ib able to keep
tho whole field under his eye at one
timo, and to relievo the overstrain at
any particular desk. The effect of the
exposed condition is beneficial, too, on
tbe staff, the members of which preserve a steadier demeanor and attend
more closely to business while under the
eyes of tho public
The London teller is a quick manipulator of coin. This Ib largely owing to
the fact that the smallest note issued in
London Ib of the value of £5 or
When asked for gold in a greater
amount than his eye oan count at a
glance, the teller, after counting it
quickly with a pianoforte motion,
throws it with his copper scoop into his
faithful scales, and so checks his count,
The weights of thoso scales are arranged
In suitable numbers. The tellor
checks tbe gold which ho receives by
weight, and here his knowledge of his
business will be tested. One hundred
new sovereigns are of full weight, rather more, in tact, but the same number
taken at haphazard will be found to be
nearly half a sovereign (or % per cent.)
short in weight, while 100 pounds sterling In ordinary half sovereigns are
sometimes 80 shillings (or 1 per cent.)
short in value. The toller can quickly
satisfy himself as to whether tho deficiency Ib caused by shortage In the
weight or the count by dividing' the
amount and weighing one moiety
against the other. If they balance
evenly the count is correot, and the difference Ib due to underweight. If the
latter exceedB the averago stated the
coin will need tn be specially examined;
there is probably something wrong.
Tbo edge of the English bank oounter
is provided with a Up to prevent the
coin from rolling over and to aid the
toller In scooping up the money. The
teller usually counts with the first two
fingers of both hands, simultaneously;
sometimes ho uses six fingers, and a
teller has been known to count four
hundred and fifty sovereigns In ono
minute, working against timo. An expert teller will oount one hundred
pounds sterling value of silver in seven
minutes. When it is remembered that
the coins aro always mixed, and consist
of sixpences, shillings, florins, half-
crowns and crowns, with never a decimal convenience among them, this will
reasonably be considered as a remarkable feat.
The annual loss from wear and tear of
gold ooin in England by reason of the
absence of small notes is almost incredible. In Scotland the issue of one-
pound sterling notes displaces gold to a
great extent. The Scotch teller excels
In counting paper money. In fingering
a bundle of notes ho is king of men.
Placing the packets upright against his
left palm, and seizing the top corner between the finger and thumb of his right
hand, he will turn over tho notes so
quickly that an ordinary observer will
be as entirely docoived as by tho threo-
card trick, and will probably oount only
sixteen or seventeen to the teller's
twenty. Then, to oheck his oount, he
will either alternate his hands, or, placing the notos horizontally on his counter, he will count thorn toward himself
with the same paralyzing speed.
The Scotch oounter Is twice as wide as
the London one; It la elevated in the
center and Is minus the rim, which facilitates the English teller's dexterity
with the coin. The Scotch teller in Edinburgh is railed in. His domain is a
little island by itself, he takos no responsibility, he carries no balances in
his head, and will not look at a oheck
until the ledger olerk, far off In the corner, has countersigned It.
An advantage which the English teller possesses over the American and the
Scotch teller lies in the fact that he issues clean notes only. The Bank ot
England has the exclusive privilege of
note issues In London and witbinaradi-
us of sixty miles, aright conferred for
a certain valuable consideration granted
to the Government In years gono by.
All tho notes received by tbe London
toller are sent into tbe Bank ot England,
and they are not reissued. The averago
life of a five-pound sterling bank note Ib
two or three weeks, that of a one-hundred-pound sterling bank note throe
days—that Ib, tho interval between Its
Issue and return to the bank for final
death.
Education in aiimmh.
There Is scarcely a daily average attendance of ten in a school population of
fromonehundred and fifty to two hundred
ateaoh village in Alaska. Fifty thousand
rubles are each year appropriated from
the imperial treasury of St. Petersburg
for aid to the church and the support t f
schools in Alaska. Part of the church
revenue is derived from tho salo of
candles at funerals and marriages and
from the rent of church property devoted to secular purposes, which the
Grajoo-Russian church, under the provisions of the troaty, was allowed to retain. This Ib not very valuable, how*
ever, as a source of rovonue. The Russian churches among the Aleuts of the
seal islands of St. Paul and St George,
in Behring sea, are In great part supported from contributions of the industrious wage-earning people of these
Islands,

Speaking of a performance given by
this club the Toronto Mail says: The
Beethoven septette waa a unique effort.
The club in this movement showed they
were far superior in ensemble playing to
many other organizations we have heard
in Toronto of a similar nature. Their
performance, in fact, gave proofs of intelligent direction and faithful rehearsing. A flute solo by Mr.Henneberg and
a violin solo by Wm. Ohliger, the leader,
were two of the most successful pieces
of the evening. Mr. Ohliger created bo
great & furore by his masterly rendering
of WieniawaBki'B difficult "Souvenir de
Moscow" that he was forced to give an
encore number. He played tho introduction complete, not even omitting, as
is so often done, the long trill with the
accompanying second part, to play which
thorough individual independence of
the fingers is indispensable.

The Festive Broncho.
A buckskin horse in a four*in-hand
team on Front Street this morning,
kicked over the traces and exemplified
in practice all the peculiar and danger,
ous positions a buckskin horse can get
into and out of without suffering harm.
The animal first got one leg over the
leaders' whinpletree and then dexterously placed the other inside the off
leader's trace. This position did not
prove satisfactory, so.the buckskin reared
und disengaged its feet and then dropped its knees gently on the whippletree
sinking to the ground in the same man'
ner as a camel about to receive its load.
After remaining in this position for a
few seconds the animal rose to its feet,
and by a smart and clever side-Jump,
skipped over its own traces, an achievement it celebrated by dancing a sort of
broncho can-can. This sort of amusement waB continued until the festive
creature became so hopelessly entangled
in its own and companion's harness that
it was unable to move anything but its
tail. The driver quietly descended and
unravelled the puzzle, set things to
rights and drove down the street at a
smart trot.

An Interesting Lecture.
Dr. Orpha D. Baldwin proved a taking
card at Herrings' opera house last night,
the anxiety of several hundred people
to ascertain "How to make life worth
living'' being so great that even a heavy
downpour of rain failed to prove a barrier. The lecture was given under the
auspices of the ladies of the W. O. T. U.,
the president of which, Mrs. James
Cunningham, occupied the chair. After
devotional exercises the lecturer was introduced, and forthwith launched into
her subject. By the aid of a very fine
manikin the different points of the lecture relating to hygiene and physiology
wore Illustrated. The lecture pointed
out the highway to health in a clear and
explicit manner, and in such an easv
way that it could be understood by all,
and that the lecture was understood ana
appreciated, was made manifest by the
untiring interest evinced by the audience from first to last. Dr. Baldwin
handled her subject in able style, nnd
her delivery was easy, forcible and un
hesitating.
This afternoon Dr. Baldwin addressed
a "mothers' meeting" at the Orange
hall, and which waB very largely attend
ed.
To-morrow night, after tho church
services, a mass meeting will be held at
Herrings' opera houso, which will
be addressed by Dr. Baldwin. There
will be no admission fee, and all are
vited to attend.

A Great Want.
Anyone who is bo inclined can place
himself in a commanding position in the
upper portion of the city nnd count two
hundred houses that have been built
aud tenanted during the lust six months,
oue hundred nil but completed, nnd another hundred in the first stages of erection, but in spite of all these additions
to the house room of tlie city it is next
to impossible for new comers to get a
dwelling to live in. It is only a few
days since Mr. A. M. Herring commenced the work of converting tlie old
Koyal Columbian Hospital buildings
into dwellings, and already one of thont
is tenanted, although only a portion of
the building Ib roofed. The family moved in nnd took possession while the
building was on rollers, and being removed to another site. The new chimneys had not been built nnd au addition
to the house was only commenced, the
door was approached by a plank gangway and a portion of the roof was off;
but that mode no difference, the people
wanted a house and they moved in, willing to put up with the inconveniences
iu the meantime. It is estimated that
fully 400 dwelling houses will go up in
Westminster during the present year,
but it is doubtful if even this large number will accommodate our ever Increasing population There is no other city
in the province that can show such a
record, and yet the Royal City makes
no boast. We have here a permanent and
growing city, expanding from natural
causes, and entirely free from temporary
inflation.
OTTAWA NOTES.
VANCOUVER   VS.   WESTMINSTER.
Ottawa, March 14.—A sharp tussle
occurred in the House to-night. While
in Committee of Supply, the West Indian steamship subsidies were being
discussed, Mr. Blake waxed indignant
at Mr. Baird, who is managing director
of the company.    Mr. Welden (Albert)
Bitched into Mr. Blake very sirongly.
tr. Edgar replied and brought up Mr,
Baird's political career into the subject.
It was unsavory and the House got
warm. The matter ended finally by
Mr. Baird apologizing. He said at the
outset of his political career he had
fallen among thieves, and he had re-
turned evil for evil. This was now
changed for the better. Tho Item then
passed the committee.
Hon. J. A. Ohapleau, the Secretary of
State, is very ill,
Lady Stanley and daughters, and
the members of the Vice-Kegal household, sail for England on the 26th inst.
The sugar refinery will be built in Vancouver this spring. The capital stock of
the company will be $500,000. Mr. J.
Hogerspthe lending promoter, is here
and has had an interview with tho Customs Department regarding -the regulations governing the refining of sugar
aud the possibilities of working up an
export trade. Mr. Rogers Is associated
with Montreal and Toronto capitalists
whose names are withhold. The raw
product will be secured in Java, China
and the West Indies. A return trade In
lumber will be developed. At present
the San Francisco refineries supply
British Columbia with sugar.

The Mew Constituency.
A gentleman who returned from Victoria yesterday says that some of the
members of the Legislature favor the extension of the boundaries of the proposed
now constituency of Vancouver City beyond the present municipal limits so as
to take in Moody ville, Hastings townsite
and the country lying north west of the
City as fur as the North Ann of the
Fraser. An interview with Dr, Wetham,
the Chairman of the Vancouver Mainland Association, ellcts the fact that tho
Bnmo suggestion hoe. been laid before
him, but as it has not come before the
Executive Committee he declined to ex
press any opinion on the subject. As it
concerns the Interests of tlie peoplo lying outside of (he City, it would be, of
course, improper for the people of Van
couver to appear in the least way to attempt to settle a question which concerns others besides themselves. As an
item showing the drift of the feeling
among the members of the Legislature,
it is wortli recording. So long as no
population distinctly rural, was not
tacked on to a constituency which from
many obvious causes will be essentially
a commercial and industrial community,
there would probably be no objection,
although it is not easy to see that any
particular advantage would ensue to
Vancouver by the suggested extension
of its electoral district.—News-Advertiser.
A Spirited Game of Poot Ball Between
the Twin City OltthS. and
Vancouver Wins.
The long talked of match between the
Westminster and Vancouver Foot Ball
Clubs came off this afternoon on Queen's
Park in the presence of fully 1,000 spectators. The local express arrived sharp
on time, bringing about 260 visitors to
witness the game. The day was all that
could be desired, the weather being mild
and the sky slightly overcast. The
enthusiasm throughout the game was
intense and never a good piece of play
was allowed to pass without hearty recognition. The teams were lined up
shortly after 3 o'clock, and worthy opponents they looked, size, weight and
apparent strength being nearly equal.
Following is the personnel:
Vancouver: H.H.Mackay, full back;
A. B. William., R. P. Woodward, C.
Nicholls, % backs; 0. H. Woodward, J.
0. Benwell, % backs; R. M. Fripp, R.
E. Palmer, — Home, J. W. Dawson, R.
J. Harvey, P. Evans, E.W. W. Pugh, —
Lee, A. Q, Malcolm, forwards.
Westminster: Whyte, full back; Lew-
__, Morrison and McGregor, % backs;
Oreaine and Woods, % backs; Corbett,
Mowat. Lister (Captain), Hamber, Clap-
cott, Pickles, McMartin, McLaren and
Bell.
Mr. P. M. Watson was chosen referee
and MessrB, W. J. Walker and J. M,
Bowell, umpires.
Lister kicked the ball into play and it
was immediately sent back to be faced,
and thrown in three times rapidly in succession from left field. A couple of
scrimmages inside the Vancouver half
followed and then the ball was gradually worked down towards Westminster's
touch line. From there it was redeemed by Woods, who took it out of the
scrimmage and kicked towards Vancouver's goal. For nearly 5 minutes tbe
ball remained inside the visitors' half,
but was taken out of the scrimmage by
Benwell, who made a brilliant run and
carried It well inside Westminster's
quarter where it wbb hotly fought over
with varying results for some 10 minutes,
Several brilliant plays were made,
which were capped by Nicholls,
who, by a very pretty run, carried
the leather, into touch. The kick for
goal failed and McMartin caught it and
earned a free kick, sending the leather
up field from where, however, it waB
quickly returned into Westminster's
half. Scrimmage followed scrimmage,
Vancouver proving stronger in many
ways than the home team. Twice the
ball was sent across the Westminster
touch line, but both times was captured by Whyte, who played a splendid game all through. Twice Westminster was forced to touch down for
safety. The home team struggled man
fully, and played a strong and persevering game, but the superior practice of
the visitors, and rather better team
play, had their effect. When time was
called tlie leather was dangerously close
to the Westminster flags. Score, Vancouver one try and 2 minor points
Westminster nil.
SECOND HALF.
It was thought the Vancouver team
would not show so much strength playing up tho grade, and that the Westminsters would; press the visitors a
little harder, but the first few minutes
of the game did not justify these suppositions. For a play off Bide
on tho part of Westminster, Vancouver was given a free kick at
goal, but the try failed. Scrimmages followed in rapid succession,
the visitors generally proving themselves
the stronger, and the leather was kept
almost continuously in the half. Foot
ball was changed into fighting for a
moment, but soon missed off. After
this Westminster worked the ball further down field, but could not get it far
into the Vancouver half, work ns they
would.
A. B, Williams, for Vaucouvers, made
u brilliant run, tho best of the day, and
carried the ball from centre field nearly
into touch. He was caught, how-
over, only a few feet from the line,
but not until the shirt had been
torn from his back. The two
Woodwards and Malcolm also made excellent plays, especially in team work.
Boimett covered himself with glory.
For Westminster Lister, Mowat,Greaine.
Morrison, Woods, Whyte and Lewis all
did good work, and hud the men been
better up in team play the result might
have been different.
Towards the end of the last half the
Westminsters made a determined effort
to regain the day, but the fates and a
very strong and' stubborn team proved
rather too strong a combination to overcome. The leather was repeatedly forced
iuto the Vancouver halt, but towards
tho goal it would not go, and no advantage had been gained when time was
called.
The game resulted in one try and 5
minor points for. Vancouver, against
a blank score for Westminster.

THE FISHING LICENSES.
closing at noon on Saturday till 6 o'clock
Sunday evening would, he says, work
much more satisfactorily, and allow a
better observance of the Sabbath.
It would seem that the cannerymen
are determined not to take out licenses
under the new fee, and If they resolve
to fish without licenses the department
will find it very difficult to enforce the
law without putting a large police force
on the river. It is probable the cannery
men will appeal to Ottawa against the
new order, and the next few weeks will
undoubtedly be productive of some lively passages between the aalmon packers
and the department. The free fishermen are undisturbed over the troubles
of the cannerymen, and seem to think
that their licenses once secured they
will be all right. They have also an
abiding faith that tbe canneries will get
out of their troubles without suffering
any undue hardships.
At a meeting of the Surrey Board of
License Commissioners on Wednesday
last the retail liquor license for the St.
Leonard's hotel was transferred from
W. Roseburgh to Messrs. Heffron &
Murphy, the popular lessees of the above
hotel.

and Are Olssatlsfled.
The news that the inspector of fisheries had been instructed to issue fishing
licenses spread like fire among the fishermen, and long before Mr. Mowat got
down to his office the whole Government
building wub boselged with men anxious
to get their licenses. The inspector was
unable to make the desired issue to-day,
for the reason that certain required
particulars were not included iu the
telegraphic orders. Following Ib a copy
of the despatch from the Department at
Ottawa:
Thomas Mowat,
Inspector of Fisheries.
Changes iu regulations as follows:
Mesh b% Inches; weekly close timo from
(1 p. in. Saturdays to (1 a. m. Mondays,
The number of licenses is fixed at 500,
of which 350 go to old and new canneries
and 160 to fishermen and freezers. Particulars as to allotment will follow by
mall. Cannery licenses to be $20 up to
twenty licenses, over that number $60
each. Freezers and fishermen licenses
♦6. No fisherman to get more than one
license.
The fishermen, on the whole, are satisfied with the* proposed arrangement,
and the increase of 60 licenses has beeu
very favorably received. The number
of licenses tone issued to freezers and
market fishermen waB not specified in
the order, and Mr. Mowat telegraphed
to-day for instructions. In the meantime, unless definite orders come to
hand from Ottawa, the Inspector will
issue a number of permits to tlie freezers
and market fishermen on Monday, which
lie has Jthe power to do,
The cannerymen, so far as can be learned, are all indignant over that part of
the order which obligeB them to pay $20
for each license up to twenty boats, and
$60 for each additional license. They
claim that it is discrimination against
tlie Fraser River, the cannery licenses
on the Skcenn being only $6 each, Mr.
Alex. Ewen, the largest and most
wealthy canneryman in the province, is
very emphatic In his censure of the increased fee, and declares that he will
take out no licenses under the present
order. He says he will not pay $20 and
$60 against the fishermen's $6, but he
will fish all the same, and he does not
think there is any law to prevent him,
Mr. D. J. Munn. of the Bon Accord
cannery, echoes the sentiments of Mr.
Ewen. He also thinks that the close
time from Saturday evening until Monday morning is badly arranged, as he
says it will necessitate the canneries
working on Sunday, which they would
avoid if possible.    The old system of
