Bbblin, March 25.—Herr Richter's
Radical organ describes Prince Bismarck's present frame of mind as a
white heat of passion. He is said to be
enraged at the calmness witli which his
final resignation has been regarded by
the nation at large. The discovery that
his personal importance at this era of
European progress is not thought so
great by others as by himself, has thrown
him into a violent temper. It is stated
that Bismarck has bought a villa in
Switzerland and intends to reside outside of Germany.
Appeal* to  Stanford.
San Fbancisco, March 25.—The executive committee of tlio Iron Moulders
Union has sent a message to Senator
Stanford, anticipating a reply to-morrow. Tlie committee when questioned
as to the contents of the despatch, was
very reticent, but it is rumored that it
wbb sent in order to induce the Senator
to use his influence on behalf of the
strikers with the Union Iron Works, in
which he said to have an interest.
offer was refused and a charge of attempted bribery of an officer will he
laid against the captain. The police
report that the hunters and part of the
crew were like madmen with the liquor
they had drunk, and think it is fortunate tbe row was quelled without bloodshed, as there being a lot of firearms on
board, the danger of a tragic ending to
the drunken spree was not slight. Captain McLean bas been lodged in jail,
and will await his trial on three or
more charges.
A Human Bat Killer.
Ottawa, March 24.—An extraordinary
and brutal spectacle was witnessed last
night at Petrolia, Out., in a blacksmith's shop, when for a wager of $50 a
man undertook to worry 20 rats with
his teeth in two minutes. The rules
were that the man should have Itis
hands tied behind his back, and he had
to worry the vermin, dog-like, with his
teeth. The first rat was easily disposed
of. The second caught his human adversary on his upper lip, hut was finally
killed. The next ten rats were disposed
of without apparent effort, but as the
man went with deadly effect at the
thirteenth rat it caught him in tbe eye.
The rat was writhing and in great agony
but would not let go. At last one spectator grabbed an axe handle and crushed the rat, aud thus delivered the man.
His face was covered with blood and
one eye was badly lacerated.
The Great Race.
London, March 24.—The interest in
the Oxford-Cambridge boat race exceeds
that of recent years and increases as the
day approaches, owing to the fine work
done by both clubs and the remarkably
fast time made in their daily practice.
Tlie latest betting is 11 to 10 on Oxford.
Blamarek Still Wanted.
Vienna, March 24.—It is rumored here
that Count Kalnoky, Imperial Prime
Minister, has suggested a conference
between the Emperor William, Emperor
Francis Joseph and King Humbert as
the only means of restoring tranquility
in Italy and Austria concerning the situation arising from Bismarck's resignation. It is hoped that Emperor William
will consent and bring with him General
Caprivi, the new Chancellor. Contrary
to published reports that no effort
seemed to be made to induce Bismnrck
to retain the Chancellorship, it is now
said thousands of letters and telegrams
have been received by him not only from
Germany but from all parts of tho world,

wounded man ia a friend of Lee Chuck,
who killed a fellow countryman about
four years ago, and on whose behulf bis
society made such a desperato fight that
they managed to get him off with murder in the second degree. The murdered man's friends worked as bard for
the death penalty, and as the Chinese
code demands "an eye for an eye" this
morning's shooting was tlie result of
their disappointment.

A Serloua Caee.
Victoria, March 24.—On Saturday a
summons was sworn out by one of the
men, charging Captain McLean, of the
scaling schooner Mary Ellen, with assault and attempting to drown. Of this
summons Captain McLean took no notice, although he waB to have appeared
in court In answer to the charge to-morrow, and to-day he made preparations
for going to sea. This morning another
of the sailors laid a complaint before
Sergeant Langley of bad treatment, and
Provincial Police Officer Miller and Special Officer Robb were detailed to serve
another summons on Captain McLean.
ThU forenoon the officers went out to
the schooner, which was lying at anchor
and found preparations being made for
immediate departure, the anchor being
"hove short" and part of the sails set*
Officer Miller informed Captain McLean
of his errand, but the Captain paid no
attention and in a few momenta the
anchor wbb hove up and the Mary Ellen
started out of the harbor with a good
breeze, the officers being prisoners on
board. A stormy fight for the possession ol. the schooner seemed imminent,
but tbe two police were not to be put
off easily. Officer Miller throw himself
against the wheel of tbe schooner, and
putting the vessel off her course forced
her on to a sand bar, where she stuck.
All this had been seen from the shore
by, the aid of powerful glasses, and Sergeant Langley at once gathered more
officers and started for the schooner to
relieve Miller and Robb and to circumvent McLean even if he got the schooner afloat and outof the Harbor. A message was sent to tho Naval Yard ut
Esquimalt asking that a steam cutter
be sent In chase of tbe Mary Ellen If
she got clear of the harbor. Fortunately! this was not necessary for when tbe
schooner was boarded by Sergeant
Langley and more police the captain
surrendered. Sergeant Langley states
that when McLean found that he had to
be taken ashore ho offered $800 down
and promise ot more if lot go, but the

Y.M.C.A. CONFERENCE.
Monday's Proceedings and the Cloge of
the Three Day*' Confer- '
enee.
The conference opened withdevo-i
tional exercises ut 9 a.m. on Monday in
the Baptist church, after which several
papers were read, and the financial
question wbb discused, Messrs. Char-
nock, Teague, Carter, Davie, Curtis,
Morris, Johnson and Horner taking
part.
Messrs. Davie, Johnson, Carter and
Chnraock spoke next on the subject of
spiritual results, and the need of tact
and cheerfulness in dealing with enquirers, and many good views were advanced.
Rev. Mr. White said that his views as
to Y. M. C, A. work had been enlarged
by what he had heard at the Conference,
although he had been in sympathy with
the work before.
Mr. Johnson found that secular work
sometimes retarded spiritual life, and
gave a method which he believed would
e successful in avoiding this, namely,
to make a list of the young men needing
spiritual assistance and endeavor to help
them.
The report of the committee on credentials was received.
Mr. Harris read a paper on "The relation of the Association to the Church
and the Relation of the Ministry to the
Association."
Mr. Carter said that he had not at
any time heard a more exhaustive treatise ou the subject, and moved that Mr.
Harris be asked to let the committee
have his essay for publication. The
motion was unanimously carried And
Mr. Harris assented to the proposition.
A short discussion followed on the
mutual relations of tho Church and the
Association and their effects upon each
other.
After lunch, and remarks hy those
delegates who were obliged to leavo
early, Mr. Johnson, on behalf of the
Committee ou Resolutions, moved the
following resolution:
Resolved, That first of all thanks be
tendered to Almighty God for his blessing, not only on the sessions of this
Conference, but ou tbe work at large
throughout the District of British Columbia ; that hearty thanks be tendered to
tbe ladles who have so kindly furnished
the excellent lunches which havo contributed materially to tbe success of the
convention; that thanks be tended to
all those who kindly entertained the
delegates iu their homes, and provided
for their comfort In so many ways; that
thanks be tendered to the press for the
full reports of the proceedings published.
The motion was unanimously carried,
and after au additional vote of thanks
to the president and officers of tho Conference, tlie meeting adjourned and the
first annual Conference of the Y.M.C.A.
of British Columbia came to a close.
FRASER JIIVER  IMPROVEMENTS.
The only river in the Dominion that
can he compared with the St. Lawrence
in importance is the Fraser River. It
drains a large extent of country and on
its navigability depends tho prosperity
of many industries. On the Fraser a
large canning business is done. The
timber on its banks and near them is
one of the principal elements of the
wealth of the province. Cutting it and
manufacturing it. already give employment to many and, if proper facilities
were extended to this part of the
country, this great industry could be indefinitely exunnded. Some of the finest
agricultural fund in the Dominion is
situated on the banks of the Fraser.
Tlie products of these very important
industries should find easy access to the
sea by tho great waterway which nature
has provided. It can easily he seen
that the progress of a very large part of
tho most productive district in the Province depends in a great measure upon
tho condition of the navigation of the
Fraser.River. If it is impeded, and if
the necessary improvements are not
made as soon as they are required, the
country through which it runs will be
kept back and other parts of the Mainland, less favorably situated, will be
able-to obtain an undue advantage- over
it. Neglect to improve the navigation
of the Fraser places it at a great disadvantage in competing in tbo timber
trade with the American cities of the
Sound.
This beingthocaso it would be thought
that the Dominion Government would
spare no expense to place the people of
British Columbia in a position to derive
the greatest possible benefit from this
great river, that it would have it carefully and accurately surveyed, properly
buoyed, and well lighted. A government desirous of promoting the welfare
of this Province would take the measures
necessary to make the navigation of this
river safe and easy. But what ought to
be is often very different from what is,
and the present condition of the Fraser
River is an example of the way in which
a government neglects what ought to be
its imperative duty.
It will hardly be believed that there
is not to-day a chart of the Fraser River
that can be relied upon. Ship owners
and.underwriters will look in vain for
autliorative and reliable information
respecting tlie navigability of this important river. Thero was an old admiralty chart which, owing to shifting
channels, .fas become 'completely obsolete, and another one that was drawn
about a year ago is bo incomplete and so
inacourate as to evoke a strong protest
from the New Westminster Board of
Trade. Commercial men will see at a
glance what a great drawback the want
of such a chart is to tbe port of New
Westminster and to the industries that
have been established on the banks of
the river. The channel of the Fraser
should bo clearly marked out, and the
depth of water in every part of it accurately ascertained. Any changes that
take place, in it should be noted and
made public with the least possible delay, and the existing channel should be
carefully buoyed.
We cannot understand why tho Government needs to be reminded of its
duty with respect to so important a
river as tho Fraser. That it should re-'
quire to be petit ioned and remonstrated
with in order to take the proper measures to make the navigation of that
river safe is, to us, incomprehensible.
The state of the Fraser River should be
as well known in Ottawa as it is in New
Westminster, and there should be neither hesitation nor delay In making
such changes as the condition of the
channel demands.
For a river harbor, where the channel
is liable to shift, a lightship is indispensable. A lighthouse would in such a
harbor be more frequently a snare than
a guide. The light should show where
the deepest water iB at tho time and the
buoys should he changed as soon as the
channel shifts. The expense of such a
ship would not be great, and oven if it
was considerable it should be promptly
incurred. This truth was known and
acted upon iu tbe early days of the province when it was a crown colony.
There was then a lightship on the Fraser
properly manned and equipped, and the
shipmaster was immediately informed
of any change that had taken place in
the channel. But there has been retrogression in this respect since confederation.
The authorities should know that the
importance of improving the navigation
of the Fraser River and of having it
known all over tbe world that it can be
safely entered by ships of a certain tonnage is worth more to the Dominion
than any sum that may be required for
lighting and buoying its channel.
It is evidently the interest of both
the Dominion nnd the Province to have
the navigation of tbe river cleared of all
obstacles and its channel properly marked to as great a distance as possible, or
as far as the requirements of business
demand. To have tho survey of tbe
river extend to twenty miles or so from
its mouth appears to us to bo a very
moderate request indeed.
Tlie resolution proposed by Mr. Cunningham ou Friday must he admitted
to be extremely moderate. It asks for
nothing but what should have been done
hy the Government of its own motion.
The Dominion authorities should not
have needed memorials from New
Westminster, or a resolution of the
Legislative Assembly of this Province,
to remind them of their duty of doing
what Is necessary to improve the inivi-
f;atlonoftho Eraser River. It is to he
toped that the forcible reminder will
not bo lost upon the Dominion Government. Tho representatives of (be Province in the Legislative Assembly may
bo fairly presumed to know what tho
wants of the Province are, and It is not
to be supposed that they would ask the
Dominion Government to do what is
unreasonable, or even what is not
urgontly required.—Leading article In
Colonist of 23rd hist.
SABBATH OBSERVANCE.
II. Amidst the prevailing gloom, however, there appear^, we think, bne unmistakable gleam of light. It is this.
The prevailing sentiment in the different communities throughout the Province is in favor of cessation of all manner of work aud proper observance of
the Sabbath. Those to whom the Lord's
Day Alliance petition was presented for
signatures readily put down their names,
aud many expressed the wish that the
Legislature might pass a strong and
stringent Sabbath law. AH truly Christian people, it is presumed, are of one
mind upon the subject; and the nominally Christian in general take the same
view. So that it is the opinion
of the different ministers located at different points all
over the Province from Kamloops
to Comox, that the vast majority of the
population favors a better observance of
the Sabbath—would hall with joy legislation prohibiting at least the more glaring forms of Sabbath desecration—and
that the number of those who openly
and daringly profane the Sabbath and
advocate their right to do so is decidedly
a minority. These appear to your committee very important and significant
opinions, opinions to which prominence
aud publicity ought to be given, and
opinions for which we ought to thank
God and take courage. For if the members of the Presbytery are correct in
their judgment that vast majorities of
the people in different parts of tlie Province are in favor of a better observance
of the Lord's day, these majorities ought
to be reminded hy us so far as we have
opportunity again and again of their duty
to stand fast in ono spirit, with one
mind striving together for tlie due
observance of the Lord's day. These
majorities ought to make their influence
tell in their respective localities by discountenancing Sunday trading and Sunday travelling, Sunday sporting and
Sunday amusements. These majorities
ought to make their influence felt at the
coining elections and see to it that those
who come forward soliciting their votes
to represent them in the Legislature ore
sound upon this point, and that they
will range themselves upon the right
side when the occasion demands. The
well-founded opinion of men who have
the best opportunity for judging, that an
immense majority of the people of this
Province favor the observance of a British Sabbath ought further to be proclaimed, because when Mr. Bole introduced a Sunday closing bill In the Provincial Legislature a year or two ago, it
was defeated, a large majority of members voting against It, and the opponents
of the bill claimed that said bill was
contrary to tlie wishes of a majority of
the population.
Your committee cannot refrain from
affirming in the strongest terms that it
is contrary to our sense of right and
justice that a portion of our fellow citizens should feel compelled or necessitated to work seven days a week, to the injury of their physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing, and contrary to their expressed wishes, merely to satisfy the
greed, the avarice, of those who for the
time being have them in their power.
Even bartenders, says one report, complain of the slavery of Sunday labor.
It is in the second place contrary to our
sentiments of fair and honorable conduct between man and man, that tbe
Christian community of this Province
should have their sacred territories ruthlessly invaded, their inherited rights
taken away, merely because this Is tbe
will and pleasure of the non-Christian
portion of tho population which is a
minority. The church of the present
day cannot be truly charged with intolerance. Christians of every denomination manifest a readiness to concede
to the fullest possible extent, the just
and reasonable rights of those who
difler from them. At the same time we
maintain that it is absurd to argue that
the Christian Sabbath can be observed

from Langley, pleaded guilty to the
charge of being drunk and disorderly,
and was dismissed as she claimed to be
without means and waB anxious to get j
home. After a severe lecture on tlio
crime of drunkeness. the woman was
told to go and get home as quickly as
possible.
George Graham and James Moore
were charged with vagrancy, and their
replies to the court were far from satisfactory. Graham made a begging tour
of the City last evening and this lend to
hia arrest. The magistrate gave them
till 3 o'clock either to And work, leave,
the City, or go to gaol for 80 days.
The Chinese gambling case, in which
Joe Pan figured as defendant, came up
for a decision. The magistrate reviewed
tlie evidence carefully, pointing out the
difference between a game ol chance
and scientific calculation, The testimony of the witnesses clearly proved
that .Joe wns conducting a lottery busl-
ness,<.and as such the investors were
unable to calculate with certainty on a
profit arising from thoir investments,
The court Imposed a fine of 120 on the
defendant, which was paid with the utmost alarclty and nintdst tho smiles of

Following is the text of the report of
the Committee on Sabbath Observance
submitted at tho meeting of the Columbia Presbytery held iu Victoria a little
over a week ogo, by the Rev. Alexander
Dunn, Convener," nnd which was recommended to be published in all the Provincial journals. The report appears
for the first time in Tub Columbian today owing to lack of space beforo:
Answers to questions on Sabbath observance have been received from every
minister within the bounds, except one,
These answers bear a striking resemblance to each other. In point of fact
the report in most respects Ib one expressed in slightly varying terms. Your
committee must state with extreme re.
grot that the tone and terms of theso reports are depressing and melancholy to
u degree. And dark as was tho report
from this Presbytery submitted to last
General Assembly, no manifest improvement has since taken place. The
same black catalogue of unsightly forms
of Sabbath desecration must uo repented
thiB year.
I. Descending to particulars, and
dealing with the answers to questions In
detail, we have to state, in the first
place, that all the brethren report having preached upon the subject of Sabbath observance, as enjoined by Assembly, and that in Vancouver a sermon on
Sabbath desecration was published in a
Sunday newspaper.
ity can have their rights while the non-
Christian population are having their
pleasures. One or other must give in.
The two cannot exist side by aide. In
their very nature they are opposed to
each other, and never, never can be
harmonized.
III. The chief forms of Sabbath desecration are the following: (1.) Sabbath freight trains. (2.) Steamboats
carrying ordinary passengers and excursion parties. .3.) Publication of the
Colonist, Victoria: the News-Advertiser,
Vancouver, and the Truth, New Westminster. (4.) Open saloons, and outside of the city nearly all stores do more
or less business on the Sabbath. (5.)
Hunting, fishing and all sorts of open-
air games. (6.) Nearly all post offices
are open.
IV. Suggestions by the brethren as
to means to be adopted to bring about
improvement in respect to better observance of the Sabbath: (l.)Frequent
addresses from the pulpit, and faithful,
prudent dealings with individual eases.
(2.) Consistent example of members of
the Church, (3.) Conferences in country districts on Sabbath observance and
kindred subjects. (4.) An agitation and
demand upon the Provincial Legislature
for a more stringent law than tho one
now in force. (5.) Our only hope, says
one, is a Dominion law, which it is ,
hoped may soon be got.

Mr. Speaker took the chair at 2:10
p. m.
Prayers by Rev. A. Bounlands.
Mr. Smith moved the following resolution :
That tho report of the Select Committee appointed 4th March, 1800, "to ascertain what action tho Government
has taken respecting the reports of tho
'Select Committee appointed to enquire
into the claim of Samuel Greer to certain land in the vicinity of English Bay,'
adopted on the 27th April, 1888," bo
adopted.
The debate which ensued upon this
resolution was taken part in by many of
the members.
Mr. Orr said that it was simply impossible to so word a resolution that no
loop hole for critical objection could not
be found by those desirous of so doing.
Mr. Speaker ruled the report out of
order.
Hon. Mr. Robson said that the Government had not ignored the previous
reports of the committee. So far from
disregarding those reports took the matter into their most serious consideration
and tbey had come to the conclusion
that it would be most unjust to give Mr.
Greer a titlo to that laud. Mr. Greer
bad no claim to a title to that land
cither In law or equity. No one better
than Mr. Orr knew how to bring In a
resolution properly worded for the attainment of his objects.
Kir. Duck was the hut speaker on the
estimates this afternoon, and the House
then w out iuto Committee of Supply.
Various Items wero passed very quietly,
hardly any debate taking place In the
Committee. The Committee rose at six
o'clock, when the House adjourned until tho evening.
During tho evening session tbo remainder of tho estimate votes were passed
and several private bills were introduced or advanced a stage.
The estimates being over, a disposition
to rush work is very observable.

TOO MUCH OF A GOOD THING.
Some of our worthy aldermen evidently
believe in giving full measure and running over. The City asked for a pound,
and a majority of the nldermanic board
has decided that it shall have two.
This is a case, however, in which the
munificent liberality of the public
spirited solons above referred to will
not be appreciated. The ratepayers
generally will be pretty unanimous in
agreeing that one pound, and one
pound-keeper, is quite sufficient, even
for Bneh a rapidly growing and ambitious
city as Westminster, and the great
majority of the citizens will resent the
establishment of a pound in Queen's
Park, even if the Citv has got the right,
which is very doubtful, to subvert any
portion of the public pleasure grounds
to such a use. A large sum of money
has already been expended on Queen's
Park, and much more will be spent In
the future to improve and beautify it
and make it a public pleasure resort and
a pride and credit to the City, and the
idea of establishing a City pound within
the precincts Is too preposterous to be
entertained for a moment. Some other
solution of the pound embroglio, embodying one pound at some convenient
location (regard being had to the fact
that a Bite must be chosen in some com*
paratively unfrequented and out of the
way portion of tbe City, if possible)
must be sought; for the ratepayers will
never consent to have a cattle pound
established in Queen's Park, neither
will they be able to see the force of establishing and maintaining two such
institutions, where one is plainly sufficient.       __,_______i__________
AN IMPORTANT RESOLUTION.
The hearty support which Mr. Cunningham's motion in the matter of the
Fraser River improvements received in
the House on Friday last from members of
both parties, and from islanders as well
as mainlanders, is decidely gratifying in
itself, and as indicating, not only the
strength of the claims which the Fraser
River has upon the attention of the Dominion Government in the minds of
reasonable men best able to judge, but
the development of a broader, a more
Provincial, as distinguished from a
merely sectional, spirit among the pub-
He men of the Province. The fact that
the motion in question was carried unanimously by the House, and had the
aetive support of the leader of the Government, as well as of a goodly number
of honorable members ou both sides of
the House, cannot but add materially to
the weight of the representations which
the Lieutenant-Governor, pursuant to
the memorial which the motion provides
for, will forward in due time to the Federal authorities.
But not only have the members of
the Legislature given a hearty and
unanimous support to this last effort to
secure practical recognition of the importance and the just claims of the
Fraser River at Ottawa, but what might,
without unfairness to any of the Provincial journals, be called the leading newspaper of the Province, the Victoria
Colonist, has added its influence to the
same worthy cause. We have great
pleasure in reproducing on another page
the lengthy and able article which the
Colonist of a recent date devotes to the
Important subject of the Fraser River
Improvements and their necessity, as
outlined by the motion introduced by
Mr. Cunningham. It will be seen that
tbe article from the Colonist takes prac
tically the same ground on the question
as was taken in an article in this paper
a few days ago on the same subject, and
puts the matter before the Dominion authorities in such a light that they can
hardly fail to see their duty in the premises, aud seeing their duty, will find it a
very difficult matter to evade it any
longer. As Mr. Croft very appropriately
remarked, this resolution (for the improvement of the navigation of the
Fraser) was one of tbe most important
that had come. before the House this
- session. To the credit of the Legislature
as a whole, and tho press, they have
viewed it in tho same light. It Is to be
hoped that the Dominion Government
may do likewise and act accordingly, and
promptly.
THE LOAN BY-LAW.
couraged and the aggregate value of the
property benefited immensely increased. The by-law appears to provide as
fairly as possible for all parts of the city,
and is, therefore, entitled to general
support on that ground. The "contingent fund" clause, and the provision
therein for limiting the expenditure on
any one street, strikes us as a prudent
proviso after the experience of last year.
It will be noticed that the by-law is prepared on the basis of last year'B assessment of the total taxable property of
the city, being $2,640,246, and not on
tbe recent increased assessment of $3,
004,940. This was rendered necessary
in order to avoid a delay of about a
month in submitting the by-law, as the
last assessment is not yet legally complete. However, as many are aware,
the Council has power by an amendment to the charter of last year to reduce the rates levied on debentures,
from time to time, as the value of taxable property ib shown to have increased by the revision of the assessment
roll, so that this point will not prejudice
the by-law with the ratepayers. Viewed in any and every light, it must be
concluded that the loan by-law is a
good measure, and*well-timed, considering the circumstances and prospects of
the city, and there is. not the smallest
reasonable doubt that a large majority
of the ratepayers will give it their hearty
endorsement,
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
good for them. The preparations thus
completed, the Indians, using one small
tin cup, which is impartially handed
from one to the another, proceed to get
On another page we print the loan bylaw, passed by the City Council last
night, and which is now submitted for
the approval of the ratepayers, the vote
to be taken about the end of next
month. The by-law provides, it will be
observed, for borrowing $80,000 for street
Improvements, the $05,000 at first proposed being found, ou a careful estimation of the work desirable and necessary
to be done, insufficient. A perusal of
the by-law, we think, will convince any
one that a well conceived and comprehensive scheme of street opening and
Improvements has been devised by the
Mayor and Council, and the apportionments for the different streets, for completing improvements inaugurated last
year and for opening out new streets,
give evidence of having been carefully
considered and arranged. The proposal
to open out three parallel streets, vis., Columbia street, the Thorn road, and the
North Arm road, to the full length of
the oity limits, will, we believe, meet
with the hearty endorsement of every
ratepayer. Not only will these fine
avenues make splendid drives, and give
Strangers a good opportunity to judge
of the incomparable site and the extent
of the city, but by this means a large,
and at present practically inaccessible,
suburban area will be opened up and
brought within easy and convenient
reach of the centre of the city, and
building operations will be thus en-
One of the extraordinary features of
this strange winter, remarks an eastern
exchange, has been the early movement
of the Arctic Ice fields and bergs. As a
rule they do not appear off Newfoundland until the early part of February,
and often not until the latter part of the
mouth. This year they began to come
down early in January, and the main
body of ice Is, it is said, now well down.
This phenomenon has led the United
States Hydrograpbic Office to send one
of its officers to Halifax and Newfoundland to investigate and make a detailed
report with a view to aiding masters of
vessels to avoid danger.
The project of bridging Behring
Straits, which is said to be attracting
discussion in Russia, remarks the Toronto Globe, is a somewhat startling one,
but there do not seem to be any insuperable difficulties in the way. The distance between Siberia and Alaska iB between fifty and sixty miles,4>ut this distance is broken into convenient sections
by three or four islands, which will form
stations in a route from Cape Prince of
Wales on the American shore to East
Cape on the Russian. The undertaking
would, of course, be an enormously expensive one, but who will say that it
will never be accomplished? With a
railway to Alaska, another across Siberia, and a tunnel under the British
Channel, our descendants, If they donot
succeed in bridging the Atlantic, may
yet journey by rail from New York to
London.
In connection with the movement
which is now making most satisfactory
progress for the confederation of tho
Australasian portion of the British Empire, the difficulty has been suggested
that New Guinea and Fiji would have to
remain crown colonies, and, therefore,
could hardly form units in a federation
of self-governing provinces. One expedient suggested by Canadian precedents
is that such portions of Australasia
might rank as territories, not provinces,
of the federation, with more restricted
powers of self-government. Of course
the two cases are not quite parallel, but
with the co-operation of the Imperial
authorities modifications could be adopted to suit the circumstances. As with
us, the powers of such territories could
be enlarged when expedient, even before the attainment of full provincial autonomy .—Empire,
A late issue of the Montreal Star contains the following horrible, though none
the less wonderful, story: Advices from
Velhonnla, Southern Russia, give curious accounts of the performances of
Count Zourohoff, a nobleman .who
professes to be an amateur doctor and
scientist. He waB recently arrested,
charged with cruelty to children, but
escaped through a technicality. It appears that he bought four children three
years old, from poor parents, and confined them in separate rooms. They
were taught absolutey nothing, and
were waited upon by a deaf and dumb
attendant. They were plentifully supplied with good food, and the rooms
were large and well warmed and ventilated, but they were allowed no clothing.
In fact they were caged like beers. In
explanation of his conduct the Count
explained that he was endeavoring to
discover what instincts were natural to
the human animal. It was proved that
he never struck the unfortunate children, who developed into perfect wild
beasts, unable to talk, and with no notions of decency. They would howl and
snarl, and tear their food like animals.
Since his trial the Count boards his
proteges with different families, and will
educate and provide for them during
the remainder of their lives. Men of
science are interested in the problem
whether the Count will be able to reclaim the children from their savagery.
Kirk Munroe tells in Scribner's how
Indians get drunk. It Is shown by the
writer that they observe a method and degree of decency that white and civilized
topers might do well to imitate. When
a band or family decide to get drunk
they send to the nearest market for one
or more gallons of liquor. With the
vile stuff in their possession the Indians
retire to some remote spot where their
orgies will not be witnessed by any save
themselves, and deliberately prepare
for their spree. They first set aside a
share of the "fire-water" for the squaws
who will not touch a drop of it until
their lords have finished their debauch.
All guns, knives and other weapons are
then placed in charge of the squaws, or,
if there are no women in the party,
they are delivered to one of the men,
for whom a certain amount of liquor is
reserved. While the rest are drunk
this guardian of the peace must remain
sober and keenly watchful of the actions
of his companions. Should he prove
unfaithful to his trusts he will be exiled
from the tribe and no Indian will hold
communication with him (or the term of
mouths or years during which his exile
is enforced. While the debauch of his
companions lasts he is absolute master
of the situation, and Ib at liberty to use
any amount of force, even to the taking
of life, to repel an attempt to regain
possession of the weapons. If these are
left to the squaws the same rule holds
solemnly, funnily, furiously and stupidly
drunk. The next day it is the turn of
the squaws or of the man who haa stood
guard, and they, too, taste the joys and
sorrows of complete intoxication.

On Wednesday night last Miss M.
Campbell, a voting lady well and favorably known In Kamloops muBical and
social circles for some time past, left to
join her parents in New Westminster,
whither they removed a few weeks ago.
Miss Campbell's absence from Kamloops will be felt in many ways, but in
none more bo than in musical circles.
Heretofore no local entertainment was
considered complete unless her name
appeared on the programme for two or
more numbers, and her willingness to
oblige always made it an easy task to request her assistance. As a vocalist she
is greatly admired and deservedly so,
ana her departure leaves a void In that
respect which at present there appears
to be no one to fill. For the past five
months Bhe has led the choir in the
Presbyterian church, and here also will
her services be missed. While expressing regret at her departure, the many
friends of Miss Campbell in Kamloops
also express the hope that life for her in
her new home may be both pleasant
and profitable, and that while making
new friends and forming new acquaintanceships she may still bear in mind
gleasing memories of the friends In

MY LOVE  HA8 GONE AWAY.
I used to love the forest green,
Each shady nook and dell,
Whero birds were twittering overhead,
Intent their lore to tell;
But now It li a haunted spot,
Where I no longer stray,
For every thing reminds me that
My love has gone away.
I used to linger on tbe beach
To hear old ocean's roar,
And watch the summer tides come In
And dash along the shore;
But now I can not bear to hear
The dirge the billows play,  '
For tbey have lost tholr charm, because
Hy love has gone away.
The country lane was, I confess,
Scarce broad enough for two,
Unless the arm was round my waist,
And thus we wundered through;
But now It Is a noxious place,
Where not a single ray
Of light appears, and all I ^use
My love has gone away.
The universe Is dark and dull;     x
Around, above, below,
There Is nothing quite so beautiful
As 'twas awhile ago;
The birds no longer sing so sweet,
The skies are cold and gray,
And nature mourns with mo, because
My love has gone away.

CALIFORNIA GRIZZLIES.
Ouu That Old Hunters Do Not
Oare to Meet When Alone.
Bruin WM Hot  Satisfied  with   SpanUh
Steers-A DMT Hunt In Whleh the
Bear Md AU the Hunting .
That Was Done.
The California grizzly li a most Interesting animal. As Bret Barto used to
aay, he has but one ungentleroanly
habit, that of scalping with his fore
paw, and this he eaught from the wicked
red man. Otherwise, unless aggressively assaulted, he is the pinto ot good behavior. He will walk off the trail and
give you the right of way, he will gather
salmon berries in the same patch, or
dig roots on the hillside while you are
sketching or writing not many yards
away.; If it were,otherwise — it the
gristly had the- temper of the royal
tiger — thousands of the pioneers of
California would have perished at his
claws, for a full-grown gritsly when
roused is ft terrible antagonist.
When Americans came to California
grizzlies were very numerous, General
Bidwell saw scores of them in the Napa
Valley, General Vallerjo saw them feeding like sheep in the Santa Rosa. In
the acorn season they were found in
droves under the oaks. The Spaniards
learned to lasso and kill them. The
Americans found groat sport In shooting
them from horsoback. When tho Mls-
sourian stockmen oame they poisoned
thousand of grizzlies, and tho work Is
still going on so steadily that the great
Paoiflo coast bear Is very scarce, and
certain to become very rare In a few
more years. At present the finest skins
that come to San Francisco aro from the
high Sierras and from Alaska.
Forty-five years ago there were grlz-
zIIob In the Santa Clara valley and in
the foot-hills within twenty miles of
San Francisco. They were in tne live-
oak forests of Enolnal and the Contra
Costa, where Berkeley, Oakland and
Alameda now stand. They were occasionally brought Into the old mission of
San Joao and turned Into rings to fight
Spanish bulls. But they lived for the
most part In contented obscurity.
When the pioneers came few of them
understood the nature of the animal,
and bo the early stories that linger in
tbe valley have elements of surprise
that the later bear stories laek.
*ld Captain Valpey, a Nova Scotlan
sailor, sold his sloop at "an early day
and bought a foot-hill ranch. There was
a deep gulch on tho tract full of oak,
madrono and chapparal. Pretty soon
he discovered that a large grizzly lived
there. The old captain went down to
the village for advice. "He will kill
your steers," said old Kester, who owned
a stock ranch. "Buy a bottle of strychnine, and tho first time you miss a steer
go out and poison the carcass." Captain
Valpoy bought the strychnine. The
next day he climbed up the hill, over
Ihe guloh, with his old spy-glass and
looked down. He Saw a great brown
body moving along the trail, and soon
the bear passed within fifty feet of the
rock where he sat. The captain was
delighted at his appearance. The next
day at the village he declared: "Boys,
nobody shall shoot or poison that grizzly
Of mine. He walks like an old salt, and
he's as big as a horse! I ain't too poor
to let him have a five-dollar Spanish steer
whenever he wants it."
Under these circumstances tho Valpoy
grizzly became famous and throve for
Boveral months. But one morning the
old captain was up on "Maintop Knob"
with his spy-glass. He saw his drove
ot cattle was In the wooded pasture below, huddled up In a bend of the creek.
Before them, marching baok and forth,
occasionally rearing up and growling,
was the great grizzly. He was selecting
his dinner, much to the amusement of
the captain. Suddenly tho bear charged
Into the band and struck down with one
blow the only blooded steer the captain
owned. The rest of the cattle escaped
with wild terror. The grizzly made his
meal and wont off. The captain swore
awhile, then .he got his strychnine
bottle, and, late In the afternoon,
cautiously descended the slope to where
tbe body of his 8100 steer lay with a
broken neck. He poured tbe stryohnino
over the carcass, saying wrathfully:
"Wasn't Spanish beef good enough for
you, ye old native Californian?" So he
poisoned his bear, after all..
There was a family of pioneers who
lived In the hills of Alamoda County,
not far from Valpey's. The elder,
Zacharlah Cheney, took his son Joe and
ft young man named Allen out to kill a
grizzly. They all know very well whero
to find him, tn a wild and broken canyon,
or about the rocks at its head, where
oak trees grew. They had come across
bis tracks many times, and bad seen
him grubbing oamaBB roots on the hillside when they wore hunting up oattlo,
So tbey thought very little of the
danger. Each of them had a gun and a
revolver. Suddenly thoy mot tbo bear
at the heed of the wooded gulch, who,
seeing their warlike preparations, Immediately charged them and treed all
threo In less than a minute. There was
so little time for choice of a tree that
tho t'ldor Cheney and young Allen got
into surub-uaks hardly larger than respectable quince trues. In less time
than It takes to toll it tho bear had
Cheney on the ground, scalped him with
one blow, crushed his arm and shoulder-
blade with another, and left him.
The bear Instantly turned his attention to young Allen, seized him by the
boot-leg, and Jerked him from the tree
so violently that the poor fellow rolled
thirty foot down the guloh and under
some willows, where he lay In alienee.
The third man was beyond reach, so the
grizzly, master of tbe olroumstanoe,
rose to his full height, gave a roar of
triumph, and walked .leisurely home.
Not a single shot was fired by any of the
three mon! Yet let no one too hastily
shoot out the contemptuous lip, for ninety-nine mon out of a hundred might
hftve done as badly. The rush of the largo
' grizzly from his ohapparal shelter Is a
terrible th'ng to face. I distrust most of
the ourreiu stories about successful
hand-to-hand encounters with full-
grown grizzlies. There Is an oak tree
In Shftstn County under which a minor
who had flrod upon a grizzly was killed
by ono blow from the enraged animal,
and when his companions killed tbe
bear it was found that the man's bullet
had passed entirely through the animal's
body.
If it were not for poison placed for
him In his haunts the great master ot
the California forests would still walk
"alone as a rhinoceros" in almost every
wild canyon of Coast Bange and Sierra.
Men learn to give him the track when-
over they ean, and It they go on the
war-path it Is with profound respect for
their antagonist's strength and courage.
I once met five or six San Luis Obispo
farmers who had shot a huge grizzly.
They took their guns and went down
into the gulch where the bear lived.
They found him where he was compelled
to cross the ravine to get to them, and so
thoy were able to put over twenty bullets into him before he died at their
feet. They had just skinned him and
spread the great bide on the rooks when
I rode up. I asked them how they felt
about it and the leader said: "We none
of us want to tackle another. It he had
been on our side of the guloh instead of
on his own most of us would have been
killed before we could pump enough
load into him." And that seemed to be
tbe general oonvlotion.
There were two Americans In the
Santa Clara valley at an early day,
brothers, named Howard and Michael
Ov cracker. Thoy owned large farms,
bad a wide acquaintance and wore very
popular. They wore also the best rifle-
shots and the most cool and successful
hunters in the county. I have seen
Michael, at a turkey match, kill his bird
at six hundred yards. They used to kill
wild geese, coyotes, mountain quail and
hare on the run with their Henry rifles.
Still, though ttiey had shot hundreds of
deer, antelopes and oik thoy never went
grizzly hunting. At last, in 1868, in
the San Benito mountains, Howard
Overauker bad his boar adventure, and
the details are vory characteristic of the
habits of the grizzly.
The elder Overacker was'then in the
prime of lifo, extremely strong, wiry,
lean and quick in his motions. . His
brother and a man named Ferguson
formed the rest ot tho party. They left
camp and separated, taking nearly parallel ravines. Howard was slowly working bis way through the dense, thorny
tn.ai-.es, called by Californlans chapparal,
when he suddenly came upon a large and
old grizzly at close quarters. The animal was less than twenty feet distant,
and at once, with a roar of rage, threw
himself upon Overacker. The hunter,
with that marvelous rapidity which such
men acquire, put a bullet Into hia foe,
threw out the shell and had pumped another cartridge Into tho rifle when the
giant of tbe wilderness struck him. The
blow delivered with tho right paw struck
hlmon tho faco and neck, hurled the gun
Into tho bushes and felled him to the
ground. The grizzly Instantly caught
him in threo places—one paw over the
ribs, breaking two and tearing them
loose; the othor paw on the ankles, ripping and crushing the flesh; the
tooth and jaws closed on the thigh,
mangling the flesh and tearing
It from tho bone. Overacker,
though perfectly conscious, lay without
amotion through this terrific assault.
Tho boar suddenly let go his hold on
tlio thigh and caught Overacker by the
shoulder, breaking and crushing the
bones together. From the time when
he rose against the man to the time
when ho dropped hlma bundle of broken
bones and torn flesh, the grizzly had
seemingly put forth butono tremendous
effort. Overacker said afterward-that
ho was no stronger in tho bear's grasp
than a cat would bo In his own, The bear
left him a moment, walked about In a
oirclo, roturned suddenly and bit pieces
of flesh aa large as a marble from various parts of Overacker's body, and then
took his final departure,
Overaokor, a fow minutes later, seized
the branches overhead and struggled to
his foot, but, to use his own phrase, "all
turned black," and his companions
found bim half an hour later. For
weeks ho was not expected to live, but
his wife's nursing and his magnificent
constitution pulled him through. Two
years later Overacker returned to the
samo region and shot two large grizzlies
without any assistance. One of them
received eight Henry rifle bullets before
ho succumbed. This little sacrifice to
his vanity being accomplished, he hunts
no more boars, and oven discourages tho
light-minded sneer at the California
grizzly. I asked the veteran whether
he would have used a bowle If he had
had It while in tho grip of the forest
king. Ovorackor smiled grimly: "It was
a very large boar—as large as an ox. If
John Sullivan had been in my place,
and had driven ft bowie-knife through
the bear's heart, ho would have been
killed in the death struggle. As for a
revolver, tt would have been suicide to
have tried It But if the bear had been
fifty feet off when I saw him, Instead of
twenty feet,'I oould have kept out ol
the way long enough to kill him."—

MADE TO LOOK  NEW.
A Simple and Effective Method of Renovating Old Garments.
Old clothing may be made to look
nearly as good as new by pursuing the
following plan, says the Philadelphia
Record:
Take, for instance, ft shiny old ooat,
vest or pair of trousers of broadcloth,
eassfmere or diagonal, The scourer
makes a strong, warm soapsud and
plunges the garment into It, souces ttup
and down, rubs tho dirty plaees; . It nee*
ossary.puts It through a second suds,
then rinses it through several waters
and hangs it to dry on tho line.
When nearly dry ho takes it in, rolls
It up for an hour or two, and then
presses it An old cotton oloth ts laid
on the outside of the coat and the iron
passed over that until the wrinkles are
out; but the iron,1b removed beforo the
steam ceases to rlso from tbe goods,
else they would be shiny. Wrinkles
that are obstinate aro removed by laying
a wet eloth over them and passing the
Iron over that.
If any shiny places aro seen they are
treated as the wrinkles are; the Iron Is
lifted, while the full cloud of steam
rlsos and brings the nap up with tt
Good cloth will bear many washings
and look better every time because of
them.       _______________
The Bond to Prosperity..
The man who saves something every
yoar, quotes a contemporary, who had
heard the remark from every quarter,
is on the road to prosperity. It may not
be possible to save much, If not, save
a little. Do not think that a dollar or a
dime is too small a sum to lay by.
Every body knows how little expend!
tures get away with large sums. But
few seem to know that the rule Ib one
that works both ways. If a dime spent
bore and ft dollar spent thero' soon make
a large hole tn a man's income, so do
dimes and dollars laid away soon bo-
come a visible and a respectable accumulation. In this country any man can
make himself independent or koep himself under the harrow for life, according
as be wastes or spends his small
change.

SPIRIT LAKE'S LEGEND.
An Interesting and Pretty Story
of Indian Lore.
How Young Star of Daj and His Pale
Faced Captive Died Together-why Ko
Indian  Ventures on the i_ake —
Superstition* rjuaotes.
It Is not difficult to Imagine what a
paradise Iowa was for the nomadle
tribes thftt first peopled it, writes Mr. J.
A. Smith In the Sioux City (Ia.) Journal. Its lakes and streams alive with
fish and fowl; Its prairies the pastare
ground for almost countless herds of
wild ruminating animals; its timber
belts furnishing convenient shelter and
fuel, while tbe rich soil responded
abundantly to their rude and desultory
attempts at agrioulture. And thinking
of this one Is led to wonder If the same
people who fough't so long and fiercely
for possession of the bleak and rugged
bills of New England and the Middle
States, and who mado ot the Ohio valley "a dark and bloody ground," submitted with such comparative tameness
to be driven from these, their beBt hunting grounds.
Hut It Is rather for the purpose of recalling one of the most charming of
Iowa's legends than for speculating upon
the Indian heglra that this narrative is
written. Ono of the loveliest sheets of
water in the world Ib Spirit Lake, now
so widely known as Iowa's beautiful
summer resort, and with Its name Is
connected the legend mentioned. The
Indian name of Spirit Lake ts Mtnne
Waukan, or "Water of the Groat
Spirit," and the legend gives the significance of the name. One who
has only seen Spirit Lake on a
calm, bright summer day, with scarcely
a rlpplo disturbing the sheen of Its
broad expanse, could but Imagine—so
peaceful, so restful and quiet Is the
scene—that If spirits'abide therein tbey
must suroly bo those gentle gnomes and
fairies whose mission to tbe human family was always one of kindness. But
when one has seen it lashed to fury by
the pitiless north wind, watched Its
steely-blue, foam-crested waves roll
high up on Sandy beach or dash In impotent rage against rock-lined .cliffs,
while afar off masses of vapor and the
vory clouds seemed to meet Its angry
surface like a besom ot destruction—
then It would be easy to understand
that the superstitious red man might
regard suoh manifestations as threatening death to any who should venture
upon Its turbulent waters.
Many years ago, so runs the legend, a
war party of Sioux who bad Joined their
brethren near the great lakes In an Incursion to drive away the usurping
whito man, returned to the tribe, bringing with them captive a beautiful white
maldon. After many weary days of
journeying they found the camp fires of
their people among tbe trees that
fringed the western shone of Spirit
Lake. The grlof and' beauty of the
white girl had touched the heart of
"Star of Day," son of a poworful chief,
and during the wearisome Journey he
tried to soften tho hardships sho endured and to show her the love she had
awakened In his breast. But the poor
captive bad no thought for any thing
but the home and friends from whom sbe
had boon so ruthlessly torn, although
her heart was filled with gratitude toward the young bravo, who protected
ber tn his rude fashion.
When the camp on tbe lake was
reached the captive waa plaoed In
ebargeof an old squaw and coi.fli.ed In
a wigwam, whero she bemoaned hor
sad fate with tears and entreaties to bo
restored to ber friends. Star of Day
tried for a time, as opportunity offered,
to urge his suit, but without avail. In
vain he rohoarsed his prowess In battle
or pointed to trophies of the chase
takon by his skill. Ills love-making
but added to tho maiden's misery, and
her only answer to hiB wooing was piteous appeals that ho would sot hor treo.
Finally Star of Day determined to not
only give hor liberty, but to conduct hor
safety to her family, hoping that such
generosity would awaken the love he
craved. He chose a time when most of
the tribe wore absent on a grand hunt
ind selecting- a dark and threatening
night for greater security the pair
launched out upon the lake In a light
but frail canoe. The girl's absence was
soon discovered by tho old squaw, and
the alarm spread through the camp.
Other canoes were manned in ehase of
the fugitives, and being propelled hy
several pairs of strong arms, the flashing light of torches ere long enabled the
pursuers to catch sight of Star of Day's
oanoo. But just as their capture was
Imminent the storm burst with terrible
fury, engulfing all In the surging whirlpool of dark waters.
From that time no Indian's canoe
ever crossed the lake. Either a storm
would suddenly arise and swamp the
frail hark or some unseen power drag
It beneath the waves. Then the tragic
fate of Star of Day and the white maiden
was invested with Indian superstition,
and their spirits wero said to haunt the
lake for the purpose ot working mischief upon all red men who should
venture thereon.
When in after years the adventurous
white hunters who first visited the lake
launched boldly upon Its surface and returned safe from their voyages, the fact
was accepted as fully confirming the
theory of ft mysterious spirit influence
whioh was exercised for the protection
of the pale-faces, as well as for the destruction of the red men. As years
passed it became ft part of the tradition
that no white man would ever be
drowned tn the lake, but that In storm
or calm his boat would safely ride its
waters, shielded from danger by the enchantment of the spirits that rule tho
waves and guide tho fatal whirlpools.
The Deepeet Coal Mine, j
Very few people, In looking at the
dusky diamonds as they lay upon the
fire, know ot the effort and the danger
that surrounds the Individual who plies
his vocation In digging the same, as the
mines are under ground, and some very
deep. The deepest one in America Is
In Pottsvllle, Pa. The shaft Is 1,676
feet deep. From Its bottom, almost a
third of ft mile down, 206 cars, holding
four tons each, are lifted every day.
They are run upon a platform, and the
whole weight of six tons ts hoisted at a
speed that makes the head swim, the
timo occupied tn lifting a full ear being
littlo more than ft minute. The hoisting and lowering ot men Into coal mines
Is regulated by law, and only ten can
stand on the platform at once, under
penalty of ft heavy fine.
The Bisk of Greatness.
He Who has roachod a high plane of
performance has increased his peril for
every subsequent performance. He
wtll ftlways be measured from that
plane. Unless he oan strain every
effort to the pitch of his former best
work, all his subsequent work will be
deemed ft deterioration. But If this
were not so, high accomplishment
would not be worth the name. Great is
the risk of greatness; yet It ts better to
« choose to walk blgn with subUmsr dried,
Bather than crawl In safety.'1

Tbe Man Found Dead Near  Whatcom
Proves to be HeOanloy of Ilarn-
aton  Island.
The fate of Samuel McCauley. of Barn-
aton Island, who left Maple Ridge in
December last and concerning whom
many reports have been circulated, has
at last been solved. Some weeks ago
tbere appeared an item in a Whatcom
paper concerning a man found dead on
the road near that town, and which
caused many of tbe missing man's
friends to think that tile description of
tbe body tallied with that of McCauley.
To settle the matter beyond doubt Mr.
James A, Stodder, of Fort Hammond, at
tbe request of McOauley'a relatives,
went over to Whatcom to investigate
the affair. Mr. Stodder interviewed^the
authorities and was shown a photograph
of the dead man, taken after the body
was found. He immediately recognized
it as the picture of his old friend. The
clothes of the deceased were also produced and identified, settling beyond
dispute the fact that tbe body found
wab that of Samuel McCauley. Mr.
Stodder made further enquiries and ascertained that McCauley passed through
Ferndale on the evening previous to the
morning on which his dead body was
found. It is supposed by tbe people
along the road that McCauley suicided,
but it is by no means certain that he
was not murdered. ■ Just how the unfortunate man met his death will probably remain a mystery.

The salmon run continues wonderfully
good, and the boats averaged 25 fish last
night. The number of white salmon,
so far, is exceedingly small, and the
fishermen hope the present state of
affairs will not be changed until the
larger runs come to hand.
It is learned that Lieut. Col. Holmes,
D. A. G., has returned from the east
where he has been on a leave of absence
for a couple of months. The Inspection
of the Westminster Militia is consequently only a matter of a few days, and
it is therefore necessary that every man
should punctually attend at the few remaining drills. Battalion drill tomorrow night.
Queen's Park is to be transformed into a city pound—a refuge for stray
cows, hogu and other animals. But a
great public protest is sure to be made
against this unseemly project. If the
Intention is carried into effect Westminster will stand out boldly and prominently as tbe only city in the whole
world which uses its pleasure grounds
as a hog and cattle pound. As Aid.
Hoy aptly put it Inst night, "the idea is
a perfect farce."
Early yesterday morning the tug
Clyde was driven ashore in the big gale
on the park side of English Bay, and is
so badly damaged that it is thought she
will have to be abandoned. Although
the beach is sandy, moro than ono hole
was stove in her hold, and the damage
done her is extensive. Yesterday tho
proprietors proposed to tho insurance
company to abandon her to them, but
their answer has not yet been ascertained. The vessel is a comparatively
new one, so that an effort will no doubt
be made to get her off.—World,
Mr. John Wilson, manager for Mr.
J. R, Booth, the famous lumberman of
Ottawa, and who Is also the largest individual lumber limit owner in Canada,
is at present in Westminster looking up
a site for another large saw mill to be
erected by Mr. Booth in this vicinity.
It is known that the gentleman named
is tho owner of extensive limits in this
Province, and that the erection of a
great mill by him here has been In contemplation for some time. The machinery will bo of eastern manufacture. It
is not yet announced when work will be
begun on the concern.
Queen's Park Improvements.
Tenders addressed to Aid. Sinclair,
Chairman of the Park Committee, are
invited up to Monday, April 7th, at 4
p. m., for building two wings to the Exhibition building, a cottage for the park-
keeper and a fence on Park Lane. The
fence, which will be built on the plan
and design of Mr. G. W. Grant, will be
very handsome .and a credit to the park
and city. The main entrance to the
park will be an elaborate and handsome
affair, thoroughly in keeping with tbe
size and beauty of tbe buildings. With
the addition of the new wings, and other
proposed additions to the stock yards
and machinery hall, the Westminster
Exhibition buildings will be the largest
and finest west of Toronto, and one of
the best appointed in tbe Dominion.

CITY COUNCIL.
The City Council met at 8 o'clock last
night for tbe  transaction of business.
Present—Aldermen Smitber, Johnston, McPhaden, Shiles, Sinclair, Hoy,
Batchelor and Lyal.
His Worship Mayor Brown in tbe
chair.
Aid, McPhaden rose to a question of
Erivilege. He said that himself and Aid.
ival had on the 12th inst. inspected the
premises complained of at Sapperton,
aud had found everything in the best of
order, and at that time, as reported,
there were only two hogs there. One
week later Mr. James Kennedy bad in'
spected tbe premises and found things
different. Many changes could be made
in any establishment in a week, and it
was absurd to insinuate that the committee had not done its duty, The
Board of Health could not live on the
premises to watch its sanitary condition.
He waB not chairman of the Board and
he thought it was a contemptible piece
of business on the part of Mr. Kennedy
to throw the whole blame, if there was
any. on hiB shoulders.
Aid. Lyal fully bore out all that was said
by Aid McPhaden. He had visited the
ranche three times last week and found
everything perfectly clean, and he
thought the obnoxious odors arose from
tbe system of manuring, not from the
outbuildings on the premises.

Royal avenue opposite his lot. Granted,

many advantages.
Referred to Fire and Light Committee

Referred to the Board of Works with
power to act.
FromT. J. Trapp complaining that
the sidewalk in rear of his store has

Council Ib not willing to attend to tbe
matter. Referred to the Board of Works
with power to act.
From the Postmaster-General, Ottawa,
acknowledging receipt of letter re mail
service between New Westminster and
Victoria.   Received and filed.
From W. T. Cooksley, assesBment commissioner, reporting that tbe assessment

duly returned to the oity clerk. The
total assessment Ib $4,508,600; exemptions $903,760. Mr. Cooksley in his report expresses his thanks to the assessors for their unremitting attention during tbe work; also his thanks to the
registrar and staff of the registry office,
the real estate agents and others who
kindly supplied information. Report
adopted.
From W. J. Walker & Co, asking acceptance of certain streets according to
accompanying plans.
BBPOBTB.
The special committee on the Westminster Electric Supply Company reported favorably on granting the company the privileges asked. Report
adopted.
The Health Committee recommended
that there be two pounds, one aa formerly near the gas works and the other in
the east end on Queen's Park.
That the committee again visited tbe
Chinese ranch at Sapperton and found
it not in as clean condition as on their
previous visit, a large additional number
of hogs and swill barrels being on the
premises. The smells complained of
seemed to arise from the system of manuring, not from the condition of the
outhouses. The owner had been instructed to have the filth removed.
Aid. Hoy said he did not think the
committee were serious in proposing to
transform Queen's Park into a pound.
Such an idea was farcial and should not
be thought of.
Aid. Sinclair said he would strongly
oppose any such thing as making the
park a cattle pound. He thought the
west end pound would accommodate all
the cattle impounded, and anyway one
would be enough for the present. If
another was required later it could easily
be erected.
Aid. McPhaden thought there Bhould
be a pound at each end of the city.
Ala. Hoy moved that there be only
one pound and that one be built on lot
18, block 6.
On a show of hands the motion was
lost, Aldermen Hoy, Sinclair and Shiles
voted In the affirmative, the rest of the
Aldermen in the negative.
Aid. Hoy wanted to know if the board
was determined to make a pound out of
Queen's Park.
The report of the Board of Health was
finally adopted on the same vote.
The Finance Committee reported unfavorably on the purchase of city directories offered by K. T. Williams.
The Park Committee was granted
further time to report ou the placing of
a tank ou Queen's Park.
The Street Improvement By-Law was
read a first and second time by title and
the Council went into committee of the
whole and passed it clause by clause.
The committee rose and reported tbe
by-law complete without amendments.
Report adopted.
On motion the Street Improvement
By-Law was ordered to be published.
On motion the proprietor of a merry*
go-round waB granted a license for s
week at $5, as the sport is purely a
childrens' affair, and the full license
would prohibit its visiting the city.
In the matter of Mr. Bison's application for a license, it was ordered that a
rebate of $20 be given him.
On motion the Board of Health waB
instructed to employ three medical men
to inspect the sanitary condition of the
old Royal Columbian Hospital,
The Council went into committee on
the Fire By-Law, advanced it a stage
and obtained permission to sit again.
The Sanitary By-Law was also advanced a stage.
On motion it was decided that the
Pound By-Law should come into force
on April 1st.
Aid. Batchelor gave notice that he
would introduce a by-law to appoint
officers and select polling booths for the
Loan By-Law election.
The Council then adjourned.
PERSONAL.
Mr. Horatio Webb, of Chilliwack, was
in tho city yesterday and left for home
this morning.
Mr. H. M. Cunningham, who has been
east on a business visit for the last two
months, returned home yesterday.

CORRESPONDENCE.
THK  FIRE  PROTECTION QUESTION.
Editob Coi.u_-tAN—-i>:—Ah you are
doubtless aware, there was an ali'.rui of
lire yesterday while a large assembly
were convened at tho Opera House, and
it was vory fortunate there was no panic,
and that the results were not of a serious character.
On returning to ray home, I found a
similar catastropho had been averted by
the vigilance of a friend: and on discussing at the social board what stops
should be taken if an alarm of lire were
heard in our house, not one could suggest a way of escape. The remark, however, was made that it was feared the
river would ignite, therefore it was necessary that tlio fire engine and all appliances for extinguishing the destroying element should be located in close
proximity thereto, but our homes,
which are suburban, are not of so much
consequence, apparently.
Permit me to suggest the desirability
of some arrangement by which a conflagration at the top of the hill—say at
Montreal and Begbie streets—may be
easily controlled—and in order to do this
it appears the locality for an engine,
Bhould be near the top, as it may require a considerable lapse of time for
the Ore to be reached, and if more help
were needed at the river side, it would
be easy to descend rapidly. If there is
no supply of water except at the river,
should not a reservoir be constructed at
the summit without delay.
I merely throw out these remarks for
what they are worth.   Among your numerous readers there may be many capable of making wiser suggestions.
Yours truly,   •
Tutbla.
