The Great Scheme.
Nbw York, April 10.—The Herald
says: It is settled that there will be
more railroad building this your in the
Northwest Territories than for several
years. A prominent gentleman who has
just arrived from London, where he
went to confer with the Grand Trunk
officials in regard to a trans-Atlantic
line from Winnipeg west to Victoria, B.
C, via Seymour Narrows and Yellow
Head Pass, tho route originally selected
for the C. I\ R. by the Mackenzie Gov
eminent. He says that in conversation
with the secretary of the Grand Trunk
►rjint gentleman made the positive assertion that the surveys of the Canada
Northwest from 'Winnipeg lo Victoria
would be commenced thin spring. He
said the Grand Trunk and Northern
Pacific would unite to build the road,
and build it too without any unneces-
Bary delay. Mr. A. \V. Boss, member
of Parliament for Manitoba, said: "The
Hudson's Bay road will commence this
fall, the Manitoba A Southeastern, and
Calgary A Edmonton will start and the
Lethbridge A Montana will be completed, as will also the Regina A Long take
to Prince Albert."

Villard Talk*.
St Paul, April 10.—Henry Villard
was honored with a banquet at Hotel
Ryan last night by the twin city commercial cltib, composed of leading financiers of St Paul and Minneapolis. After the banquet Mr. Villard unfolded his
big scheme. He said that within the
next four days the Northern Pacific will
expend over fifty million dollars in the
Northwest, chiefly in Montana and
Washington, and at the end of that time
will own 8500 miles of main line fully
equipped. Several million dollars in
erecting gigantic electric plants in tbe
twin cities will be expended.
Confession of Faith.
Nkw York, April 10.—The Independent
says: Of tbe 120 presbyteries throughout the country which have voted on
the question of the revision of the Confession of Faith, 82 favors the revision.
There are 80 presbyteries yet to vote.
It is probable that tho total vote in favor of revision will be nearly two-thirds
of all the presbyteries.
Love Laveli All.
Nkw Yobk, Aprli 10.—The Herald
says Winnie Davis,, daughter of the late
Jefferson Davis, will soon marry Alfred
Wilkinson, a young lawyer of Syracuse,
a grandson of tbe famous abolitionist,
Samuel May.
Cloekmakera' Strike Succeed...
Chicago, April 16.—The clock makers'
strike has been settled aud 200 men returned to work thiB morning, A. Slegel
A Bros., agreeing to pay tlie demand of
15 cents advance on the dollar. Tlje
firm recognized the Union.
By a Different Menu.
Boston, April 16.—Early this morning
P. Magler, a fisherman, and despondent,
attempted to hang himself with a rope
from the window of his chamber in an
upper story at 201 North street. The
rope broke, and Magler fell to the sidewalk and was killed.
Th* Sugar -Outlet.
Washington, April 10.—A Republican member of the Ways and Means
Committee made a change iu tbe sugar
schedule by providing that sugar shall
be admitted free, ana allowing a bounty
of 2 cents for every pound produced in
this country. The change was made at
a late hour last night, and in consequence of it the tarifT bill with the majority and minority reports ou it will
not be submitted until late this afternoon. Mr. Canlisle was informed of the
change this morning, and spent several
hours modelling a minority report to
twit it. A protest signed by the chairman of the sugar planters delegation
was filed with tlie committee this morning. It states that the sugar men are
not in favor of the bounty and do not
desire it.	
Pair Weather.
San Francisco, April 10.—Fair
weather, with the exception of local
rains in the western portion from Portland northward, is predicted until tomorrow morning.
Building Stopped by Striken.
Chicago, April 10.—The embargo
placed by the striking carpenters on
building operations in Chicago continues.
The official veto on labor extends not
only to all of their own craft, but now
embraces nearly all trades employed in
architectural work. At the closo of
work last evening tho great majority of
the bricklayers, plasterers, lathers,
painters andj>lumbera were laid off indefinitely. There was no more work for
them to do. All lines of work had
reached stopping places, beyond which
they could not go without the assistance
of tne carpenters. Nothingdone to-day
bosses dla not even attempt start up.
A UreBt Prediction.
Nkw York, April 10.—The Sun special
from Denver says Meat Axe, the big
Shoshone medicine man, has predicted
a flood to occur in July and wipe out the
heartless palefaceB. He says the visitation is in retribution for the unjust conduct of the whites in confining 2,000
Indians on a little reservation of 2,000,-
000 acres, circumscribing them so thoy
don't get a shot more than once a year.
Runners havo been sent all over the
reservation and to the Crows, Cheyennes
and Sioux to herald the calamity and a
rush of Indians to Wind River Mountains, tbe scheduled haven, is anticipated. Meat Axe exhibited considerable
ingenuity in arranging for tho general
sousing. He has it that all the whites
and half-breeds will be drowned, aud
that the game will apparently die to
make the play strong, but that aB the
waters recede the beasts will revive to
become the prey of the braves.
Interesting BUli.
Washington, April 10.—A bill was
introduced in tho Senate to re-open the
.League Island, Pennsylvania, navy yard
for the construction of vessels. O'Neill
Introduced a bill to erect an equestrian
statue of General Grant in Washington;
Mitchell gave notice that on Tuesday
next he would call up his resolution providing for the elections of United States
Senators by a vote of tbe people. Bills
were passed for the construction of a
bridge over the Mississippi River at
Galesburg, Ills.; also a House bill granting to the Palatine and Spokane Railway
right of way through the Nez Perce
reservation of Idaho. At 1 o'clock the
Montana election case come up as unfinished business, Gibson, of fxmisana,
having the floor in favor of seating
Maginnis and Clark, Democrats. After
the House opened this morning a letter
was read from the Secretary of the Treasury, transmitting a telegram from the
collector at San Francisco, relative to
seven Chinese who recently arrived
there en route to Texas, whom he declined to allow to land. The Seoretary
instructed him to allow them to be transferred to a vessel bound for Panama.
Another Defaulter.
Burnt, Mo., April 10—It leaked out
to-day that Assistant Postmaster Jones,
who has been absent from his office for
two weeks, is a defaulter to the amount
of $1,900. He was appointed by Postmaster Evans when the latter took
office on January 1st, being highly recommended by people in Lansing, Michigan, where he had been ten years in the
pOBtal service, and bore a high character. He has not been at his room for a
week and the matter has been put in
tbe hands of the police. Ho has apparently left town.
Baldknohberi at Work.
Kansas Citx, April 10,—Nows reached here this morning from Douophan,
Mo., of a raid last Saturday night by
the "Bald Knobbers." The first houso
reached in thoir rounds was that of
Kphrinm Holland, an old man who had
'for some unknown cause given offense.
Four men wearing heavy masks rode up
to the door and demanded admittance.
This waa rcfuaed nnd while one member of the gang held the liui&ea the
others battered down the door witli a
heavy log. Tho old man made a feeble
resistance, but waB knocked down and
the assailants began kicking and pounding him while ho lay at their mercy.
The fourteen-vear-old son of Mr. Holland was aroused by the struggle and,
taking a shotgun from the wall, tired nt
the men who were beating hiB father.
One of the gang dropped dead and another attempted to shoot the boy, but
before he could do so the hoy fired'agnin
and mortally wounded him. The others
then fled and tho wounded man crawled
out to the gate whore he lay until morning groaning. Just at daylight when
help came he died. The neighbors took
off the masks of the dead men and found
them to be near neighbors of Holland's,
one of them, Edward Gilliam, jr., son of
a well-to-do farmer, and the other was
Alexander Gatewood, who has the reputation of being a general bail character in the neighborhood.
Crushed hy a Hour.
Rome, April 10.—The roof of n weaving mill at Bergamo fell this morning.
Threo hundred girls were at work nnd
17 were killed nnd many serioimly injured.

Messina, April 10.—The officers of the
warships now in port here including
thoso of the Boston and Atlanta, of
the American squadron of Evolution,
Inst evening wero entertained at a fete
given in their honor by the Prefect.
The Benwell Murder.
Buantford, Ont., April 15.—An interesting discovery, that may still further
complicate tbe Burchall murder case,
has just been made here. On the Commercial Hotel register wus the name of
F, C. Benwell, which was Bupposed to
have been placed there by Burchnll's
victim. It is now learned that it was
written by another young Englishman,
who left for this country a few weeks before the Princeton tragedy, and who,
curiously enough, bore exactly the same
patronymic as Burchall's friend. As
Burchall has all along averred that the
supposed murdered Benwell is alive, it
is likely that an attempt will be made
to identify the murdered man as tho one
registered nt the hotel here.
Germany In Africa.
London, April 15.—Despatches from
Zanzibar state that the operations of
the Germans there are of the most vigorous character. Everyone connected in
any capacity with the projects of Major
Wisaman Ib displaying a degree of activity singularly at variance with the German national trait of deliberation, and
everything perfuming to the preparations for,the new Emin expedition is
being conducted with marked thoroughness. The town within an incredibly
short time has become bo entirely Germanized that the residents find themselves almost strangers. Several large
offices and depots have been established
by tho Germans, nnd each of these constantly displays the German flag, while
the German uniform is everywhere visible. The British have no office at Zanzibar, and consequently the English flag
Ib not to be Been, much to the disgust of
Englishmen, who view with indignation
the Germans' preparations to extend
the influence and power of their Empire
into a territory hitherto tacitly admitted
to belong to England if it belonged to
anybody.
The occasional despatches conveying
assurances of the safety aud successful
operations of Dr. Peters, several times
declared by presumably competent authority to be (lead, and tlie extensive preparations for Emin's departure, have
created a genuine alarm here for tho security of British interests in South Eastern and Equatorial Africa, which tho
8ress are unanimous in calling upon the
ove runicnt to protect.

Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla;
PROVINCIAL^PAjffLIAMENT.
Monday's   l'rooeedlngs Continued.
(Ergm Our Own ti>rre*»onttent.)
Hon. Mr. Vernon moved the first
reading of a bill to amend the Land Act.
Bill read a first time. Second reading
set for Tuesday.
Mr, Cunningham asked leave to introduce a bill to amend the Mechanics Lieu
Act. BUI read a first time. Second
reading set for Tuesday.
The Hon. Mr. Turner moved the following resolution: Whereas the report
of the Public Accounts1 committee finds
that a very lurge proportion of revenue
is paid by the public into the Lands and
Works Department, in addition to large
Hums paid ont of. the Treasury to that
Department, as cash advances*, and that
similar advances of smaller magnitude
nre mado by tho Treasury to tho Attorney-General, Provincial Secretary,
and other officers;
And whereaB such finding may mean
either that advances are made to tho
Attorney-General, Provincial Secretary,
and other officers personally for their
own use, or that the advances are to tho
departments for departmental purposes,
and may also imply un improper departure from accustomed nnd honest practice, or may mean that the proper and
ordinary course of business has been
adhered to;
And whereas tlio said report also refers tn cash ml vim .:<.[. untile lu tlio lute
Superintendant of Police, Mr. H. B.
Roycraft, but is silent as.to tlte purposes
for which such advances were made,
and tho circumstances attendant thereon ; and it is also stated in the said report that "although Mr. Koycrnft is
known to have held #80 of the June collections iu his hands on the 30th June,
1880, the Public Accounts and Balance
Sheet of the Province at that date, as
laid before the legislature, do not show
that sum," by which statement it may
be inferred, either that the defalcation
alleged was known nt the time of the
preparation of the Public Accounts and
Balance Sheet, nnd was purposely omitted therefrom, or that the defalcation
has been only recently discovered;
And whereas the report also finds
that an audit of the books of the Lands
and Works Department has not taken
place for years, but goes on to say:
"Your Committeo are informed that
the Lands and Works Department pay
revenue into the Treasury once every
week, nnd sometimes more frequently";
The mover said that it was probably
owing to the wording of the report that
those who read it arrived at different
conclusions. This should not he the
caso in n report such aB that referred to.
He cited several cases which showed
that the misunderstanding as to the
meaning of tbe report simply arose
through clumsy phraseology and ambiguous expressions. Mr. Turner then
entered into a detailed explanation nf
the several clauses of the report aud
gave what he asserted to be tho correct
version of the various matters. Tlte history of the celebrnted defaulter, Roy-
crott, was pretty well ventilated. The
Government implicitly trusted a man
who was just as much trusted by a large
number of private citizens, who had,
perhaps, greater occasion to mourn his
unseasonable departure than had the
Government. The honorablo gentleman went ovor every item in the resolution and went fully into each, explaining and pointing out what should or
should not have done iu reference to the
same.
Mr. Martin said, iu seconding the resolution that if tbe report had been allowed to go before the Dominion Government as it stood it would have placed
this House in n very awkward position.
Hon. Mr. Beaven thought this resolution of the most extraordinary that ever
came beforo the House. Ho named the
gentlemen who composed the committee and said he challenged any one to
show an inaccuracy in the report.
Hon. Mr. Turner rose to a point of
order and Hon. Air. Heaven headed him
off by fining to another, aud stating that
Hon. Mr. Turner's point of ordor was no
point of order at nil. A lively scene of
getting up and sitting down ensued ovor
thia vitally important affair, and Mr.
Beaven finally held the floor and wont
on with his cxplnnations. Had he been
drawing out that report ho would have
mado it much stronger than it was. But
he had waived his own opinions to those
of his colleagues and tlio report had
been issued as it now stood.
The behavior of Mr. Roycroft again
received full aud detailed dissection.
Mr. Beaven stated that not a single
official of tho crown or head of department gave security as ho should. Phis
wns a departure from the rule of former
days. He then rend tho list of those
who were entitled to givo security. It
was an utter absurdity to expect the
Public Accounts Committee to audit the
books of tho Lands and Works department: such work would require the attention of expert accountants.
Hou. Mr. Davie said that if the last
Bpcuker were n man for whose opinion
he had any regard, he would feel ashamed to nave listened to the speech
he had made. He said that u lie could
be manufactured just as well by leaving
out a part of a statement as by telling
the blackest untruth. The rest of Mr.
Davie's spoech wub of*n sevorly recriminative nature aud tho lie was given to
tho Opposition in toto. "Falsehoods,"
"lios.'" "untruths," "prevarications,"
"equivocations" nnd "deceptions" wore
somo of the epithets hurled from Governmental benches. Mr. Davie said it
had evidently beon Mr, Benveu's intention to go forth to the electors wltb the
statement in his baud, proclaiming to
the country that tho members of the
Government were little better than
thieves and pick-pockets, who barefacedly helped themselves to the public
money iii the treasury whonover it
suited them. The report had boen
drawn up with infinite craft aud cunning; but it would be shown that the
document was futile in its aims, cunningly and crafty as it had been prepared. Tlie honorablo gentleman
charged the bulk of the approbruiin
upon the honorable leader of the Opposition. It was vain, he said, for that
gentleman to attempt to shield himself
behind the other members of the committee. The purport of the report was
undoubtedly to prodjudice of tho people
against the Government. The peroration of the honorable Attorney-General
wns quite fiery, und a violent repntntlon
of every statement made by the committee. ,
Mr. Grant said that mistiness wus a
characteristic of tho honorablo Attornoy-
General lit bis harangue against the
Opposition. Ho was like tho lawyer,
who, not having a good caso, turned his
talents to personally abusing the opposing counsel. This tho honorable Attorney-General had done to perfect ion,
his mtid-slinglngnttackon the honorablo
leader of tho Opposition being a master
piece of that style of eloquence. Tho
report of tho committee was plain
enough to bo understood by any boy
in his fifth reader. Tho Btntemonts contained in thnt report wore of such n
nature thnt no honorablo memberof the
Government could rebut thorn. It snid
just exactly what tho committee found,
and was a plain statement of facts. No
member of the Houso would harbor tho
suspicion for a moment that a member
of tho Government would got awtty
with a single dollar of the public's
money; tho report did not mako any
such suggestion, and it wan ridiculous to
construe tlio report in that light, ns several honorablo members of tho Government had done.
Mr. Mason said that he, as n member
of that committee, did not feel himself
insulted in the least by the remarks
made by the hon. the Attorney-General
and taken exception to by the hon. tho
leader of tho Opposition. The report
was without doubt constructed in such a
peculiar manner that a great many different meanings could be expressed from
it by an unprincipled politician.
Mr. Semlin related au amusing anecdote from his personal experience, of a
Squatters' committee whose report had
met with much tbe same reception as
that at present under the consideration
of the House. He ingeniously shaped
the comical circumstance of that committee's discomfoture to the discredit
of tho Government, much to the pleasure of tho Opposition, who, to a man
laughed consumcdlv during the recital.
An animated general discussion followed on questions of minor import-
a uce.
Mr. Speaker finally ruled tho discussion on those little points out of order.
Mr. Duck suid that as a member of
that committee he had no desire to shirk
any responsibility. He knew perfectly
well what he was doing when ho signed
that report. He explained the report
prettv fully und his remarks couBider-
bly olucidated the entanglement of sense
and construction in the same. He believed tbo report lo be perfectly truthful
and fair. Ilo was sorry the" Finance
Minister had taken the matter so much
to heart, as no reflection was intended
to be cast upon tho management of the
Treasury Department.
Hon. Mr. Turner pointed out that.
although tho matter hi the report waB
substantially the truth, the construction
had been so skilfully managed that it
mado a lie in overy sentence. All
through the speech of tlie hon. leader of
the Opposition the same line of tactics
could bo detected.
The hon. Finance Minister then denied very empahatieallv several of tbe
assertions made by the hon. leader of
the Opposition. He thought the word
cunning used by the hon. Attorney-General in describing the action of the leader of the Opposition in connection with
this report, could be exchanged for the
word subtle. The leuder of the Opposition's action had been Bubtle, and, like
thatof the serpent in the Garden of Edon,
(Government merriment).
Resolution carried.
Mr. Orr asked the Hon. the Attorney-
General the following questions:—
Is it the intention of the Government
to introduce legislation during the present session for the following purposes,
as required by the members of the legal
profession of the City of Vancouver:—
1. To make Vancouver Citv a separate judicial district from New Westminster?
2. To appoint a Supreme Court Registrar with the same powers as a Master
in Chancery in all interlocutory niatterB
"i the Supreme and County Courts?
8. To give the County Court Judge
tbe same powers In Interlocutory matters
as a Supreme Court Judge?
<i. To empower the Sheriff of New
Westminster to have a Deputy at Vancouver, with full power to receive, file,
and execute nil writs?
The answers returned were; 1, No.
2. No. il. Yes. 4, This matter does
not require legislation, but will receive
tbe attention of the Government.
The House adjourned at 12:36a.m.
Tuesday'* Proceedings.
Mr, Cunningham submitted the report of tho select commltce on the North
Arm bridge as follows:
Mr. Speaker—The committee appointed to enquire into the causes of the
carrying away of a portion of tho bridgo
across tbe North Arm of the Fraser
river, and into all matters in connection
with tho said bridges, beg to report as
follows:
Your committee, accompanied by Mr. ■
Gore, surveyor-general, representing the
Government;Mr. Cott, representing tho
San Francisco Bridge Co., and Mr. Kidd,
ex-reeve of Richmond municipality, proceeded by steamer on the 14th February
to tho site of said bridges for the purpose of inspecting the same, and after a
critical examination of tho structure adjourned to tho Board of Trade rooms,
Vancouver, to examine witnesses under
oath.
After hearing all the evidence we find:
(1.) That the contract was let to the
San Francisco Bridge Co., for tbe sum of
$27,500, who furnished their own plant,
which wero modified at the instance of
the Richmond municipal council.
(2.) That the plans and specifications
wore faulty in regard to the size of the
piers, ana that tho bracing was insufficient.
(3.) That the piles were principally
under sized and carelessly driven; tlie
waling and sheeting being inadeqate,
and the mechanical work was Blighted
to such au extent ns to result iu one
span of the bridge being carried away
by an ice floe of not more than two
inches in thickness.
(4.) That the Government superintendent wns careless aud Incompetent,
and iu accepting tho bridgo fiom tho
contractors ho misled tho Government,
his report being entirely at variance
with the facts.
(5.) That the foreman of the San
Francisco Bridge Co. Blighted the work
both in piers and superstructure without the apparent knowledge of the company.
(0,) That tho members of the Municipal Council of Richmond had full
know ledge of the work being slighted;
but failed to take any steps for the protection either of the municipality or tbe
Government.
All of which, together with tho evidence, Is respectfully submitted.
Mr. Cunningbun moved that the report be received and printed together
with tho evidence.
Mr. Beaven looked upon the report aB
a severe censure upon the chief commissioner of lands and works, whose resignation ho looked at any timo.
Hon. Mr. Vernon observed that when
ho waa chief commissioner of lauds aud
works tho leader of the Opposition used
to consider himself a first-class engineer,
nnd was accustomed to personally inspect aud survey works that were then
under construction. What, ho would
like to know constituted the senior
member for Victoria an engineer. The
works of tbo department wero under the
direction and control of the chief engineer, thiB being tbe first time that
an accident of tbe kind had occurred.
Accidents would always occur, but this
was the first timo that the blame for
them bad beeu east upon the chief commissioner of lands und works. It wub
Ids (Mr. Vernon's) business to generally
direct tho business of tbe department,
but the details wero the charge of tho
departmental officials. Kvery where it
was the practice to obtain plans as well
as estimates, in order that the public
interests might bo best subserved. As
for this report calling for his (Mr. Ver-
nou's) resignation it rested with the
premier.
Mr. Grant quoted tho statute and
proceeded to lecture the chief commissioner of lands nnd works as to his
duties with respect to tbe preparation
of plans und specifications.
lion. Mr. Pooley said the member
for Cassiar appeared to interpret tho
laws ns to provide for the preparation of
tbe plans and specifications by tho departmental oMleers, They could be prepared nny time subject to the approval
of the Chlof CommiBBionor.
Mr. Haslam contended that unless it
wore tho practice to obtain plans from
persons, no matter whore, who wore
fully posted ns to tho latest inventions
and methods it would be impossible to

THE  REDISTRIBUTION BILL.
The Redistribution Bill, as we an'
flounced briefly last night, wns submitted to tlie House into yesterday afternoon. To state the provisions of the
measure more particularly and analytically than waB possible in our issue oi
last night will be necesBary in the first
place: The six additional repreBenta-
tiv-a wero apportioned as follows: Nanaimo City, which with the District oi
that name has under the old order of
tilings formed one constituency, witli
two members, is by the redistribution
made into n separate constituency witli
one member. Alberni, a new constituency also taken from Nnnaimn District,
is given one member; aud tlie islands of
the gulf, forming another new constituency, gets the third Island member,
On the Mainland, Vancouver City, formerly constituting a part of Westminster
District, Ib created into a separate constituency with two members; and Kootenay District is divided into two, and
receives one member for the new district.
The following table will show tlio various constituencies of the Province, witli
their respective representation, under
the new distribution:

Grand Total  33
It will be remembered that wo printed
a few weeks ago a return showing the
number of volors, registered nud applicants, for tlie Province, by districts, up
to February 28th last, and that
in an analysis of those lists,
counting registered voters nnd applicants together, we showed that Vancouver Island, now embracing eight
constituencies (leaving the new gulf
islands constituency altogether out of
the count), hod an oxccsb of voters over
tlie (now) throe constituencies of Westminster City, Vancouver City and Westminster District of but 525, tile respective actual figures being 7,081 and tt,-
_5(l. Now, since tlie Redistribution
Bill has been brought down, let us enquire what representation this precious
measure allots to 7,081 Island voters,
and then Bee how tlie proportion is
curried out when it comes to according
(1,55(1 Mainland voters their quota of
members. Wc find (aud the reader
can verily tlio fact for himself, by referring to tlie table above) that the 7,081
Island voters get FIFTEEN members,
or one for every 472 (without tlie fractions) ; while the hapless 0,550 Mainland
voters are allowed but SIX, or ono member for every 1,002 voters I
A few more comparisons will not be
amiss: Victoria City, Victoria District
and Esquimalt, taken together, the returns showed, hod a total of voters,
registered and applicants, of 4,677.
These Island voters, under tlio Redistribution Bill, are given EIGHT moin-
hem, or one for every 584 voters. Nanaimo City and District, and Alberni,
witli a total of only 1,059 voters, receive an increase of two members by
the redistribution scheme, thus giving
them FOUR altogether, or one member
for every 414 voters. New Westminster
City and District, witli a list of voters of
3,138, gets no increased representation
from the redistribution, but Is left with
ItB former number of FOUR, or one
member for evory 784 voters!
Those comparisons will suffice to show
the uniniUB of tho whole measure, und
very little added comment is needed.
We have purposely confined tlie comparisons lo wliut might lie called the
centres of population and wealth on
both Island aud Mainland, where all
tbo circumstances nre practically anal-
' agous. From these comparisons it will
be seen that a very grave injustice will be
done to the whole Lower Mainland section
of the Province if this redistribution
measure becomes law. Whether it Bhall
become law or not rests with the members of tlie Legislature, and the question
will be sell led in a few days. We would
remind tlie Victoria and the Island
members, both of the Government and
the legislature, whoso hands arc plainly
to lie seen in Ibis measure, thnt might
docs not make right, and to pause ore
perpetrating such a wrong on this portion of the Province. Wo would ask the
Mainland members of both tlie Government und the legislature, notwithstanding the strong pressure which we
appreciate has been brought to bear
upon both, to refuse to lie parlies to the
proposed gross injustice embodied in the
redistribution measure.
Should the bill carry, spite of all, we
warn the legislators and people of the
Island, and Government and Opposition
alike, that justice'will be done; thnt
this section of the Province must and
will have its rights; and that speedily,
and that tho Injustice now sought to bo
perpetrated will but react upon the
heads of the wrong-doera with fateful
force.
The Columbian job department is
now in running order; and prepared to
turn out flrst-class work of every description. «
It has been estimated that in Paria
an average of 160 eggs are cousumed
yearly per head of the population, and
that at least eighty millions of capons
and chickens aro eaten throughout
France between the first day of January
and the last day of December in any
given year. To the Frenchman (unless
he ia exceedingly poor) the chicken
seems to be almost an absolute necessity,
so largely does it enter into his dietary
programme. It ie not surprising, therefore, that the raising of poultry is a
grent industry in the Republic across
" the sliver streak." Economy is eminently characteristic of the French
housewife, and so it comes about that
in Paris she can purchase half birds,
whilst in Bordeaux, are to be Been on
sale legs, wings, and breasts of chicken.
Madame is a born cook and can make a
fine dish with but very little meat, and
if her purse is a shallow one, this aptitude for making a little go a long way
is very convenient. Throughout France
the raising of poultry enterb very largely
into the farmer's economy. In La
Mancbe and the valley of the Ange, in
La Fleche, Mantes, the Bourg, and Lon-
haiiB, fowls are especially cultivated,
in the same manner that in Norfolk the
Englishman looks for turkeys, and at
Aylesbury the finest ducks.
But it is from a general point of view
that French poultry raising shows to advantage. English farmers as a class do
not keep flocks of poultry as part of their
farm operations; but across the Ciion
nel the agriculturalists regards them aB
muoh a part nf his live stock aB the cattle. In the wine districts, between the
rows of vines, are placed portable houses
for the Howls, which do a double service
by enriching the land with their manure, and clearing itof slugs and worms.
Tho fattening ot chickens for the market
has been reduced to a fine art. The
birds are kept in dark cages, and three
or four times a day are crammed with
liquid nourishment, by means of funnels
placed in their mouths.. The - breeder
and the fattener aro frequently two
separate individuals. So great is the demand for birds that some dealers regularly supply the market with aa many
aa 80,000 in a year. Near Houdan there
is an egg hatchery, where thousands of
chickens are brought to light in incubators. Tlie farmers around bring their
eggs to this establishment and leave
them for three weeks, when they return
to fetoh the birds, leaving in pavment
one for every three so hatched out.
That poultry raising can be made a
highly remunerative industry in this
country goes without saying. So successful already have some of our own
citizens been in their efforts that the
task of proving this is quite superfluous.
The Frenchman is eminently methodical
in his poultry raising, and to this no
doubt is largely due much of his success,
whilst the lack of system is probably one
of the reasons why we hear bo many
people declare that "chickens don't
" pay." Tlie egg is, and will remain a
staple article of diet, and the individual
who can, by example, show poultry
raising to be a profitable industry is ub
much a benefactor of bis race as he
" who makes two blades of wheat grow
" where one grew before."
A number of the doom-sealer discip-
les oi the Woodworth woman, who believe in the prophecy that Oakland, San
Francisco, Alameda, and Berkeioy will
be swallowed up by earthquakes and
tidal wuves between April 7 and 14, says
the San Francisco Bulletin of a late date,
hove gone East, and about 100 others
arc preparing to leave and "flee to the
mountains." Bennett, tliohicycloevangelist, who went about tlie streets on
his wheel imagining himself to be
second Jonah and Oakland a second
Nineveh, and shouting "Woe 1 Woe
Flee to the mountains I" left for the
EaBt yesterday. The prophet, Brick-
son, is iu Stockton asylum, and says he
is safe from the impending destruction.

5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Municipality of Surrey, midway between the

This property is situated on tho Hall's Prairie road/near the
junction of tho Langley Road, the Yale Road, and tho Clover
Valley Road, within 500 yards of tho proposed station of the New
Westminster Southern Railway. The land is high and dry, and
the soil is first-class. Surrey is one of the most prosperous sections of the District of New Westminster, and is at present enjoying quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this property will get the value of their money in good, rich, solid farm
land iu a locality which at tho same time promises an excellent
field for speculation.
NORTH  ARM.
146 aores in Lot 165, near the North Arm Road,
about 21-2 miles west of the New Westminster City
Post-office, at $160 per aore.
This is fine fertile soil, chiofly prairie, and lies well. It
has become a maxim that cities grow westward, and New Westminster is proving no exception to the rule. City lots west of
Edinburgh Street, along the North Arm road, have doubled in
value in less than a year, while acre tracts have, in'the some
time, in some instances more than trebled, When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to the Westerly City Boundary is
completed, the North Arm will become the host suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expected by many that
the route of the Electric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
section. Our shrewdest speculators are realizing the possibilities
of this portion of the City, and the many sales of acre property
in the vicinity recently, indicate that land in the direction of the
North Arm is looked upon as one of the best places for investment in the District.   Prices aro bound to advance rapidly.

CLOTHING  FOR A GOOSE.
How an Old Gander Came to Be Dreaied
In Bod Flannel.
Laat New Year's, writes a correspondent, a very amusing event occurred In
. my poultry-yard, where 1 had a flock of
seen geese, which I was planning to
keep through the winter. That morning 1 fed tbem as usual, giving them
two quarts of corn taken from a barrel
in the shed. During the forenoon I had
occasion to pass through the farm-yard,
and, to my dismay, found the old gander
stretched on the snow, apparently dead.
The geese, too, appeared unusually
dumpish, as if other deaths might be expected in a short time.
Annoyed at tbe loss of the gander, I
resolved to make the damages as light
as possible, and so picked him up, carried him to the house, and proceeded to
pick off his feathers. This done, I left
his body at the baok door to be carried off by one of the men.
In the middle of the afternoon I heard
a most unusual honking and squawking
in the barnyard, and ran out to see what
was the matter.
Matter enough, surely! There waa
the old gander whom I had stripped and
left for dead strutting about among the
geese, who had recovered from their
morning's stupidity, and evidently
didn't like the novel appearance of
their former "lord and master." They
were chasing the poor, shivering, naked
creature about the yard, giving him
spiteful pecks at every opportunity.
. I laughed till the tears oame at tho
comical sight Then I caught the poor
creature, carried him to the house, and
clothed him in red flannel, which I
sewed on. ' He was a funny-looking
gander.  ■
The geese liked him little better than
before, and pecked and chased him bo
badly that I kept the unfortunate biped
by himself for a few days, till he had
become a little accustomed to his red
flannel plumage. After that he had
littlo difficulty in recovering his former
dignity and prestige.
What had caused tbe seeming death
of the poor gander was soon apparent
The mischief was in the corn barrel.
One of the farm laborers, an excellent
fellow, save tbat onoe in three or four
months he would have "a little bit of a
good time," as he expressed it, had hidden his bottle of whisky, with whtoh he
intended to celebrate New Year's, in
the corn barrel over night The cork
oame out the contents escaped and
saturated the corn, and my unfortunate
geese had the "little bit of a good
time."
It was an amusing, yet pertinent
temperance lesson to the man, and it
was six months before be again indulged
hiB appetite. I wish I could write that
he completely reformed, but hereditary
taint and habit were too strong to be thus
overcome. Tlie gander wore his flannel
suit all winter, and was spoken of ever
after as the "red flannel gander."-'

BIXBY  GOES TO  MARKET.
A Domestic Experiment Fraught wltb
Disastrous Results,
The Blzbys live in a suburb within
ten miles of .Sew York, and tbey havo
always had their Saturday marketing
sent out by tho local express wagon,
but tho other Saturday morning when
Mrs. Bixby gavo Mr. B. her usual list
of things ho said:
"See here, Mandy, I just don't think
I'll havo our thiugB sent out by express
hereafter. Jt costs twenty-five cents
ev'ry time, and hanged if I ain't going
to just smother my pride and bring
them out myself and save my quarter.
I saw Brown on the train yesterday
loaded with bundles, and Jones had
half a dozen last night and if they and
othor men I know oan oarry bundles, I
guess I oan, too."
"Of course you oan," said Mrs. Bixby,
encouragingly. "I'vo thought so myself, but X hated to ask you to do it"
"Woll, I'm just going to do it hereafter and save a dollar or so a month.
Give mo your list"
Mr. Bixby reached home tbat night
half an hour late. Thon he burst into
his wife's presence, saying hotly:
"Now, see here, Mandy Bixby, I just
want it distinctly and eternally understood that this Is the last time / bring
marketing home! I'll break up housekeeping and go into a flfth-rate boarding bouse first. A lovely time I'vo had
and a beautiful exhibition I've made of
myself on the streets!"
"Why, Elijah!"
"Oh, I'd say 'Elijah' It I were you!
You'd said it in earnest if you'd board
me swear when tho bag of oranges I was
carrying burst, and away they rolled
under the horse oars and I let 'em roll
and got home with just one out of fifty
cents' worth of 'emt Then the fool who
sold me the chicken I bought didn't put
paper enough around it, and first thing
I knew there wero tho chicken's baro
legs stioking out and Its blamed nock
poking out tho othor end of the paper,
and, of course, I met evory woman and
man I knew In this oity! The string
came off my bundle of celery, and away
went the paper from It and my bag of
bananaB sprung a leak and I dropped
one overy ten stops, and I let the bag
of cranberries fall and away tho infernal things went and tho crowd
walked all over me while I was trying
to sorape 'em up in my handerchief, and
I lost my hat and missed my train and
broke that cursed bottle of salad oil in
my new overcoat pocket, and tho stuif
leaked through in a stream all the way
home, and I'll be divorced from this
family and olear out for Montana before fit undertake to oarry another Sunday dinner homo in my arms—now you
mind Mo*/"—Time.

Our beautiful city is dormant no longer, its long silence has
suddenly ended, and it now ranks foremost among the cities of
the Pacific Coast; its wealth and population have increased at a
remarkable rate.
In 1888 the total value of taxable property in the city limits
was hardly $1,000,000, while to-day it aggregates nearly $5,000,000.
In 1887 the population was 3,000, now it is over 8,000.
The Oity Council has undertaken immense public works, and
a large number of public and private buildings are under construction.
The city is now the Fresh Water Terminus of the Canadian
Pacific, and by the first of July next it will be connected by the
New Westminster Southern with the great American transcontinental routes.
Noting all the foregoing facts New Westminster's future prosperity is assured, and no other city in the Province offers such
splendid inducements to investors.
Our lists of city and district property are complete. Call and
see us.   Correspondence solicited.

Feeding Canary BlnU,
A good many people don't know how
to tako oare of oanary birds, and I,
therefore, give them the following advice which I got from a bird-fancier:
"Never give your bird sugar, or figs, or
raisins, or any thing sweet, except a
small piece of sweet apple (peeled)
twice a week. Put tho apple In tbo oago
in the morning and tako lt out at night
It should have all the rape and canary
soed lt wants and gravel should bo kept
at the bottom of the cage. Avoid feeding tho bird celery. Twice a week food
it on one-third of a boiled egg, using
both the white and tbe yellow of the
egg, Orate up the egg; that is better
than putting It In wholo. Give it the
egg the day before It gets tbe apple and
as large a piece of the former as of tho
latter. Let it have a bath evory other
day, using water with the chill taken
off."—Epoch;

After many delays and disappointments the fine sir. Deleware has at last

delay in getting the vessel into commission was certain defects in her machinery; these have been remedied by
Messrs. Reid A Currie in a most workmanlike manner, and the Delaware is
now all that she was first intended to be
by her owners. The steamer left this
morning on her first up river trip of the
season, taking a large freight and 20
passengers. From this time forward
she will make three trips weekly to
Chilliwack and intermediate ports, but
it is possible these trips will be increased

Tliellear'a Nest Mine.
Mr. Barnhart and his mining engineer! Mr. Wm. Venator, will leave for
Alaska on the next steamer for the purpose of taking action in the courts there
to secure control of the Bear's Nest
Mining Company's property. As lias
before been stated, Mr. Barnhart is
armed with authority from the German
and English stockholders and has also
secured the sanction of a portion of the
American stockholders, which gives him
the great majority of the stock. His
visit to Alaska is for the purpose of making a thorough examination of the mine
and determining its worth lessness or
value. On his recent visit to Alaska he
endeavored to do this, but those in
charge prevented him, Hence the action in court to place him in possession.
The other party have taken up a number of lawyers to fight the case for them.,
but it is expected that the Alaska courts
will give the owners of the mine a chance
to see what their property consists of.
There is something very peculiar about
the whole transaction, Acting upon
the report of their own experts, European capitalists purchased the control of
the mine for a large Bum. Prospecting
work waB continued, and at the suggestion of the management an eighty stamp
mill was placed Hi position. Mr. Barnhart received a cable last fall stating
that the prospects were good, and three
weeks afterwards received another stating that the mine waB a swindle, that it
had been "salted." ThiB he did not be
lieve, and came to America to invest!
Sate. Either the stockholders in the
rst place have been misled by "cooked*'
reports, and this is not for one instant
entertained, or the parties in charge are
endeavoring to manipulate matters so
that they may gain possession of what
they have proved to be a fine property.
Whatever the position of affairs is, Mr.
Barnhart is determined to learn before
leaving for home, and as he has right on
his side it is trusted that he will emi
nently succeed.
he bo ably filled as a pilot ou the river.
We were glad, however, to Bee that the

opinions as these the buccohs of to-night's
concert is assured.
Tlie llenion   Why.
Day after day it is the same old story
at the City lockup—no cases. Coiit-
stable Smith sits at his table aud tries
to work out the puzzling conundrum:
Why is it that Westminster shows such
an excellent police record when business
has never been so good, money more
plentiful or the population of all classes
greater? He is at a loss to find the
answer even after a patient search of
the best authorities, hut has put the
whole thing down to our excellent police
force coupled with the hwi that doubtful
characters are never allowed to remain
in the City more than 24 hours. This
last guess is probably the correct one.
Tlie police have found that very little
crime comes from the permanent population of the city, but chiefly from wandering vagrants who drift into the City
frequently. And this is the reason why
these characters get their wall: ing tickets
so promptly, aud why the City is being
more and more given a wide berth by
the tramp fraternity.

Electric Welding Results.—The
largest Thomson electric welding apparatus yet produced welds a copper ball
of an inch in diameter, a brass bar of
\% inches, or an iron bar of 3 inches,
and a machine ia being made for welding 6-inch iron pipes. This system of
welding depends upon heating by the
resistance of small contacts to large currents, and for the metallic bars mentioned a current of 30,000 amperes, of the
low pressure of 1 or 2 volts, iB necesBary.
To carry such no enormous current without heating, a solid copper bar %%
inches in diameter iB used as the secondary conductor of the transformer which
converts an ordinary dynamo current
(passing over a Binall wire) into one of
the great volume and low tension needed. To produce the current by primary
battery would require 00,000 telegraphic
gravity cells for an electromotive force
of 1 volt, and double that number for 2
volts. For welding each square inch or
section of iron or steel in 40 seconds,
about 30 indicated horse power Is exerted by the steam engine, during the production of the current, though smaller
power suffices for less rapid work. Platinum and German silver wires as small
as one-fiftieth of an inch in diameter
have been united by this system, and
work under the microscope might be
done if desirable. The smallest currents
now used range between 200 and 300
amperes.

FORT LANGLEY ITEMS.
I From Our Owtt Correspondent]
iAnulev, April 14.—There has been a
poor old Indian woman found murdered
in the Island Reserve here, since last
week's notes, The chief reported the
case to Councillor Otway Wilkie, who
lost no time in crossing to the settlement, and found the body, with marks
of violence aud other indications of having met with foul play. He at once
took stepB to havo the coroner informed
of the occurrence by telegram from Port
Hammond, five miles off; but that gentleman being up the river on another
case of enquiry, it was feared some delay would take place before he could arrive, In the meantime every exertion
was made to gather the facts in connection with the unhappy woman's death,
and informations were sworn before
James Mackie, Esq., J. P., which led to
the arrest of a young man from the
mainland, who was on the ranch about
the time the foul deed was supposed to
have been committed, and he is now
under remand, charged on suspicion.
Capt, G. Pittendrigh arrived soon after
the meeting of the magistrates (Messrs.
Mackie and Maxwell) and he at once
had a jurv of six summoned, with Mr.
William ftnwlison as foreman, and proceeded to the Island, Having viewed
the body, a prolonged inquiry waB subsequently instituted in the Town Hall.
The witnesses were mostly Indian
women, who had to be' examined
through the medium of an interpreter.
As the deceased was alleged to have
been alone in the cabin at the time of
the sad occurrence, little could be elicited from her neighbors. The body, they
stated, was found ou the floor about 8
o'cloek in the morning, with blood
marks on the clothes, and abrasions
about the head as if she had been clubbed and kicked. But ns the remains
had been removed and washed, an-opportunity was not afforded to the coroner and the jury to do more than inspect the shanty and its surroundings
and the corpse as it lay in the coffin
ready for interment. It came out in
course of the evidence that the other
occupants of the place had beeu across
the river that night; and in the morning the front door was closed, but the
back door was open, and on entering the
latter, the woman was found aB mentioned. After a short consultation the
jury guve thoir verdict—that the woman
was murdered by some person or persons unknown.
Next morning a young man was
charged before the magistrates, Messrs.
Mackie and Maxwell, and Capt. Pittendrigh, with having had intoxicants on
tho Indian's reservation for which, having pleaded guilty, he waB sentenced to
six months' imprisonment with hard
labor, and Is now in gaol suffering the
penalties of his offense.
The weather here Ib still very cold,
hail and rain showers being not infrequent, and the farmers in consequence
are not in very hopeful mood, the spring
being so far advanced.
The William Irving put in Its first appearance during the week. We regret
the absence of our old friend Captain
Frank Odin, from the wheel house this
season. He was a great favorite with
the people, and we hope It will not he
long before we see him again in the part
t From   Our Own Correspondent.)
Ottawa, April 16.—There was a long
discussion this afternoon regarding Sir
John Thompson's clause in his bill to
further amend the criminal law re seduction, Hon. Peter Mitchell, Mr, Mara
and others strongly opposing it.
Dr. Borg.it moved an amendment, seconded by Hon. Peter Mitchell, that the
clause be cutout. A vote of the House
was called for and resulted as follows:
For amendment, yeas 36: iwya 128. Mr.
Mitchell is now addressing the House
on the passage of the bill.
Married Abroad.
Among the passengers who arrived by
the str. Islander last evening were Mr,
John Clayton, the popular fur trader of
Bella Bella, and his bride. Mr. Clayton
left for England on the 8th January, and
was married at Stanton-by-Bridge, on
the 18th March, to Miss Elizabeth Cross,
eldest daughter of Henry Orton, Esq.,
starting the next day for home. The
wedding ceremony, which waB a most
brilliant affair, was performed in the
Parish church at Stanton-on-Bridge,
before a large assemblage of friends of
the contracting parties. Six bridesmaids were in attendance, and the music
waB of an unusually fine character. At
the conclusion of the service the newly-
married pair left the edifice amid the
pealing of the church chimes, and were
driven to the residence of the bride's
cousin, where a magnificent luncheon
was served to forty guests, who with the
exception of the rector and his wife,
were relatives of the bride and groom,
The presents were numerous, many be*
ing very expensive, The Orton family
have occupied the mansion, where the
wedding reception occurred, for over 250
years, being one of the oldest families in
that part of England. The voyage home
was made on the steamer Teutonic of
the White Star Line, one of the most
magnificent liners afloat. A few days
in New York and Montreal, and a pleasant trans-continental trip brought Mr.
Clayton aud his wife back to his home
una friends, who all join in welcoming
the travellers, and wishing them joy in

secure the best work. The proper policy
was to have all possible competition
from the outeide world. If British Columbia could not benefit by all the competition possible it were better for her
to shut herself up altogether.
Mr. Semlin observed that it was man!
fest someone had blundered.
Hon. Mr. Vernon—Tell us something
wedon'tkhow?
Mr. Semlin held that in the cuse of
the bridge the Government uppearedto
have thought that there was not talent
enough in British Columbia to build It,
and so they had gone to San Francisco.
The report wns ordered to be received
and printed.
Hon. Mr. Robson introduced a bill to
amend the Constitution Act. Read a
first time, and Hon. Mr. Robson moved
that the second reading be set for Wednesday,
Hon. Mr. Beaven thought this amendment to the Constitution Act wns a bill
of such importance that it should receive more consideration than could be
given to it if the second reading waB
I'taken up ut the next sitting of the House.
If it had taken the Government from
the time the House opened to incubate
ou thiB mutter, the House should be
given a little time to study the proposition of the Government before taking
action on it. The leader of the Opposition objected to the Government's delay hi taking the House into their confidence and thus restricting the time In
which the members could determine
what was best to be done. He moved
that the second reading lie set for the
30th instead of the 16th of April.
Hon. Mr. Robson did not think anything was to bo gained by the delay pro-
nosed. The provisions of the bill were
low and simple. It was easy to see that
the plan proposed by the Hon. Mr.
Beaven won to allow Her Majesty's loyal
Opposition to try to work up a feeling In
the country antagonistic to the measure.
Mr. Ladner supported the amendment, and explained how the Mainland
Association wished to discusa the bill
and give an expression of opinion before
it was passed. If their wish was treated
with contempt it might lead to steps
being taken thnt would lie deeply regretted. All that Westminster district
wanted wns representation hy taxation
and population.
Mr. Cunningham, while he had, since
taking his seat In the House, given a
generous support to the Government,
thought it would he a great hardship to
pass the hill without allowing the members au opportunity of consulting with
their constituents. Ho appealed to the
Government not to^ress tlie matter.
Mr. Semlin complained of the delay in
bringing the bill forward. The hon.
member went into an elaborate and erudite mathematical calculation to prove
that 42 days had been lost by the members in waiting for the Government to
formulate the redistribution policy.
Hon. Mr. Davie contended that, considering the importance of the measures
dealt with this session, there had been
no undue delays, but that everything
had been dealt with all expedition.
Mr. Grant said that the Government
hod announced aB long as nine months
ago their intention to deal with thiB
subject, and it was most reprehensible
that the Government Bhould have acted
as they had done. The Government, in
fact, were afraid to act until they had
got the cue from those who supported
them.
Mr. Duck saw no use in delay.
The amendment was lost, its supporters being Messrs. Beaven, Semlin, Orr,
Ladner, Grant and Cunningham.
Hon Mr. Robson's motion was adopted on the same division.
