point, and the gup
wide at 6 o'clock Sunday morning. The
levee ia said to be one of the largest on
the Arkansas side, situated ou a boggy
bayou, and was built and maintained by
the Government. Tho parties who did
the cutting are unknown, but it is supposed they came from the Red Fork
country, on the Arksas river, aud their
object In cutting the levee at that point
was to relieve their section of the country, and the water running through the
new crevasse will overflow a portion of
Chicot and Desha countries, which so
far have escaped. The flood will run
into Bayou Bocuff and will eventually take its way to Tansas Basin.

Stanford Wlll Retire.
San Francisco, April 7. — Senator
Stanford was seen nt his ofllce thiB
morning. "It iB true," he said, "that I
shall present my resignation us president of the Southern Pacific Company
at the meeting of the hoard of directors
on Wednesday. The reason Ib simply
that I cannot attend to my duties. The
university and senatorship consume bo
much of my time that I can't
meet with my associates and give
them the assistance they require
from one who occupies my position, and
so at last they have agreed to consent
to my retirement. I have contemplated
this step for four years, but heretofore
my associates have declined to accept
the resignation. It is also true that Mr.
Huntington will succeed ine. He has
lately retired from tho Chesapeake &
Ohio road, and can now devote hiB time
to our company. I shall retain all toy
interest in the railroads composing the
Southern Pacific and when my assistance ii necessary shall give it toward
their management.
Drunk on Duty.

Frehet, who was president of the court

illegitimate son of Judge A. J. Davis, of
Montana, the money king who recently
died without leaving a will, at Butte
City, has put in a claim to his $12,000,-
000 of property. The heirs in this city
sent Judge Gideon Willes to Montana
to-night to represent them, and the
heirs in New York have employed distinguished legal talent to go out and
look after their claims. The relatives
here are two sisters and a niece, while
the New York nephew is making strenuous efforts to save the estate to immediate kin.

prompted the act.
Bad for Chicago. •
CniCAoo,Apl,7—Tliecnrponters'strlke,
added to that of the plumbers', will put a
pretty effective stopper on building
operations. Machinists held a large
meeting yesterday and eight hours was
greatly favored, but no action taken.
They will meet again in a few days. All
these things are making builders very
cautious about signing contracts, as thoy
fear a repetition of the disastrous strikes
and lockouts of 1886.
Elections Down South.
Birmingham, Ala., April 7.—Yesterday's killing of a marshal aiid three
negroes was not directly connected with
tlitf political trouble existing here. Citizens claim the negroes have been Incited by the Republicans. The White
Caps are operating nt Iron Dnlo, a suburb of this city. The trouble arose in
the election of Mayor and the appointment of a post-master. James E. Wid*
in ami, the Republican candidate for
mayor, defeated C. A. Taunton, the
Democratic candidate by seven votes.
Taunton claimed that tho Republicans
had run In negroes who were not entitled to vote, and a contest was Instituted
in the courts, resulting in the election
being upset. From this decision an
appeal was taken to tho Supreme Court
a few days ago. A lawyer named J. N.
Carpenter acted as Wldman'a attorney
and J. 0. Widmann, father of the mayor-
elect was appointed post master. The
two WidmannB and Carpenter on Saturday received letters signed "White Caps"
.warning them to leave town. The post
rofflce is being boycotted.

Fighting Brutes and Mauled Fool*.
Boston, April 5.—John L. Sullivan
waB seen last night in regard to the published report that "Jim" Corbett, the
San Francisco heavy-weight is anxious
to try his skill against the champion.
"I am more than ready to meet Corbett," said Sullivan, "but only on one
condition, if we are to box four rounds.
I'll contract to put him to sleep iu that
time. If I succeed I get $1,000, if I don't
he gets the money. No half and half
business about it.   These contracts for
[ate receipts savor too much of faking.
fou can say that John L. Sullivan will
fight Corbett 4 rounds for $1,000 and if
ho does not whip him in that time he
won't accept a cent." Secretary Slate,
of the Gladstone Club, of Providence,
who was present at tho interview, said
the club would give a purse of $1,000 for
such a contest if it could be arranged
for April 2Srd. "Billy" Mahoney und
Sullivan are desirous of making a match
between "Jack" McAuliffe and "Patsy"
Kerrigan, and will back the latter for
$2,500. '	
A   Mysterious Ship.
Toronto, April 5.—Yesterday afternoon a large yacht was sighted heading
for the port under full sail. An hour
later, she seemed to be in distress, but
before a boat sent from the harbor could
reach her, she capsized. No person was
found upon her, though all the circumstances went to show that she had recently been manned. Tho sails wore all
Bet, tlie centreboard down and a man'
hat wbb found in the lockers. The
name "Idler" was painted on the stem,
but none of the yachtmen of this city
know anything about the yacht or crew,
who are supposed to have perished.
Awful.
Winnipeg, April 5.—A letter from
Hudson Bay says: "There has been
great distress among the Indians near
the LesBer Slave Lake during the winter. In some cases natives killed and
ate their owu children, while dogs and
all kinds of domestic animals were used
for food.   Many of the Indians died.
I'reu and  People Say No.
'Ottawa, April 5.—In the tariff debate
in parliament last night, Mr. Ellis,
member from St. John, N. B., said that
owing to the increased burdens, the Government was placing on the people of
the maritime provinces, he did not think
it worth while for New Brunswick to remain iu the confederation. Hon. Peter
Mitchell received a telegram signed by
all lumber merchants in his county,
Northumberland, New Brunswick, Liberals and Conservatives alike condemning the additional taxation upon flour,
beef, pork, hardware and clothing. In
addition, despatches from British Columbia stated that the newspapers of
that province, regardless of political
bias condemn the tariff increases as unjust und oppressive.
Carrier Pigeons.
Kingston, Ont, April 8.—General
Cameron, of the Royal Engineers, commandant of the Royal military college,
Ib organizing a system of messenger
pigeon stations throughout Canada. He
propones that Canadian cruisers utilize
the pigeons by having stations along tho
coast, and thus communicating news,
and poachers and fishing vessels might
also give notice of their whereabouts
without putting into port. The practical
object In view is to supplement ihe facilities for the rapid transmission of messages afforded by telegraph linos; lu
peace to act as feeders to those lines,
and In war to act as feeders for substitutes. He proposes a chain of twenty
stations from Windsor to Halifax.
An Oily Count.
Boston, April 3.—Reports from London and Dublin confirm the awful suspicions concerning "Count Rouiaulvun-
ovitch de Llpmann Zubof," which have
lately been entertained in Boston, whore
he has been a social lion for so many
weeks. A really brilliant catalogue of
confidence games and "fine work" of
many sorts, accomplished by the fellow
under the name of Llpmann, is given.
He changed his religion two or threo
times in the course of his swing in the
United Kingdom, was thick with Tories,
Homo rulers ana Liberal Unionists by
turn, forged checks and lived high, and
finally enjoyed a year's imprisonment.
Altogether his career thero lasted some
eight years. The prominent English
people who were swindled are greatly
comforted to find that good society in
Bolton wub likewise deceived. There is
one additional bit of color in the Boston
record. He brought there brand now
Ills title of count and his name of Zubof,
and there he published a novel and became a contributor to American literature. Ono wonders where ho will play
his game next	
Senator Blair's weeks of dreary talk
in the United States Senate in support
of his Education hill has had tho not
surprising effect of scouring for that
measure u more crushing defeat than It
ever before experienced. It wus rejected on Thursday by a vote of 37 to ill.
In former years the senators had allowed
it to pass their chamber, trusting to the
House to slaughter It, which was invariably done. This year, however, thoy
signified their disapproval of Mr. Blairf
Getting Civilized.
Rome, April 7*—Menelok, emperor of
Abyssinia, writes to Premier Crispi
authorizing Italy to represent Abyssinia
at the Anti-slavery conference at Brussels. Menelok asserts the policy of
Abyssinia is to co-operate with the civilized nations to abolish tlie African
slave trade. Mouelek asks that his
troops be allowed to pass through Italian
f-ossessions in Africa on their way to
ight the dervishes. Meoehaha. Men-
elek's Ethiopian general has arrived at
Massowa. He will act in harmony with
the Italian forces in the Government of
Tigre, a province of Abyssinia. The
troops will evacuate tho province.
The Notorious Lecaron.
Dunlin, April l.—Ereeman's Journal
says: Lecaron, tho notorious Times
witneBS before the Parnell Commission,
is living in retirement iu the London
suburbs, changed by a grey beard and
recognition is difficult. The Journal
asserts ho is to be given Government
employment in Australia.
Another Fair Sacrifice.
Berlin, April7.—Another morganatic
marriage is about to augment tho
number of matrimonial alliances
between royalty and the stage. The
Langravo of Hesse, twenty-seven years
of age, and stone blind, is about to wed
a very popular actress of a leading
Frankfort theatre. She is exceedingly
beautiful and of noble birth, being the
daughter of a distinguished officers whose
death left his family in great poverty.
The Albany Memorial.
Cannes, April 7.—The unveiling of the
monument erected hy Queen Victoria
in memory of the late Duke of Albany,
was performed this morning by the
Prince of Wales in the Albany memorial
chanel of St. Georges ou California Hill.
Seldom has such n ceremony been performed before bo thoroughly a sympathetic gathering, or timid such lovely surroundings, for the church had been decorated bv delicate bands.
this indicate failure? Look at the
figures and they will tell you.
The present depression of the salmon
market, home and foreign, of Columbia
River salmon (which is superior to all
canned), is largely due to the fraudulent
labelling of inferior fish on the fall fishing rivers of Oregon, Washington and
Alaska by dishonest packers who pack
all kinds of trashy fish, and label them
Columbia River salmon, and In most
instances the same packers are those
that are interested on the river; they
are to blame, and it is for their greed,
that we have to suffer. At present a
deadlock exists here on the river. Can-
ners say they can't pav $1 and $1.25 per
fish at present.
What will you do about this; are you
with us in our fight for good wages and
fair pay? If so, show it in a practical
way by joining us, and help us to work
for yourself and others; put your shoulder to the wheel, and show to the world
that you mean to uphold the right and
dignity of labor, and make this movement a grand success. It depends on
you and every one thut fish for salmon,
whether or not you shall obtain decent
living wages this year aud henceforth,
or if you hy reducing prices this year
(which is altogether out of tho question),
you will be compelled in less than one
yoar hence to lir.li for 50 cents or less
per fish.
You know the situation. Are you
with us and for us, and for yourselves
and families? If so both you and we
shall succeed together.
Rend, think, pondernnd act, and don't
forget that this Union has been the
means of putting over $800,000 into the
pockets of the fishermen of this river.
This may mean less profit for canners
and speculators, but it means' moro
wages for the fishermen,
OTTAWA JOTTINGS.
A   London Sensation.
London, April 7.—A sensation has
como in the form of a church scandal
which implicates Rev. Dr. Henry White
who for thirty years has been chaplain
of Chapel Royal, Savoy, and of the
House of Commons. Dr. Wbito has

The Highest Authority Talks.
London} April 5.—Sir Samuel White
Baker, the English explorer, iu a letter
just published indicts the recent policy
of the Government touching African affairs, which lie says has resulted in the
loss of all positions which had been
Sained through the enterprise of iudivl-
uals, and commenting upon Emm
Pasha's recent course, ho says it is only
natural that Emin should join the Gorman Government expedition, which he
predicts will not Imitate the fatal example of England by advancing only to
retreat. The writer then shows now
the Germans will Boon regain the equatorial provinces and how thev will eventually secure control of tho White Nile
at Gondakoro, while Italy will become
master of the situation by possession of
Berber und Kassala. Then he says
Khartoum will naturally fall. With regard to the value of the equatorial provinces in a commercial sense, he says
they are not of much account, the products being worth ton times less than
the cost of transport, while tho legitimate purchuBO of ivory Is impossible.

wages. The records of the Union arc
such that wo need not be ashamed of It.
A rehearsal of a few of the victories won
hy this association, and tho consequent
benefit conferred on every fisherman, is
suoh that facts and figures can alone
toll. Tho Union started into operation
in April, 1886, nt that time tho canners
offered 45 and 50 cents per fish. The
Union secured tho first year an advance
of 20 and 26 cents per fish all round.
Next season, that of '87, there was a
further increase of prices of 80 and 25
cents per fish. Season of '88 nnd '80 a
further increase of 10 and 25 cents per
fish; in every instance more wnges for
tho fishermen of all classes, which would
never be accomplished had the Union

The Value of Cattle Exported During
1S89---The Nortn went Act Amendments
—Mounted Police Annual Report.
1 From  Our Own Correspondent.)
Ottawa, March 29.—The annual report
of the Minister of Agriculture has been
received. It contains much valuable information. The cattle quarantine reports state that the total number of
cattle which entered Canada during the
year was 3,984; of sheep, 38,036; of swine,
2,132,andofhorses,2,041. The cattle were
entered principally nt Fort McLeod for
the ranches, the number being 5,445;
and there wero 140 pedigreed cattle entered at Point Levis and 128 at Point
Edward. The exports of meat cattle
from the Dominion during the year appear to have been very large, numbering
85,053 by the St. Lawrence, together
with 58,993 sheep. The total value of
moat cattle exported from the Dominion
during tho year amounted to $5,708,126;
tho value of sheep being$1,268,126, while
tho value of horses exported was over
$2,000,000.
In tho Senate yesterday afternoon Hon.
Mr. Abbott introduced an Act amending
tho Northwest Territories Act. It defines tho boundaries of tho territories,
practically including the habitable lands
of tho west outside the Provinces of
Manitoba and British Columbia. It
provides for a Legislative Assembly of
22 members, and of three legal experts
appointed by the Governor, elected
every three years, the present Legislature to Borve out the remainder of its
term of office, and the new one shall
meet mice a year. The Legislature Ib to
sit separately from the Lieutenant-
Governor, and all bills passed by it are to
be submitted to him for sanction. But
ho may refer any such measures to the
Dominion Executive.
THE MOUNTED POLICE.
The roport of tho Commissioner of tho
Northwest Mounted Police force.says
as follows:
Horse stealing, even among Indians,
has almost entirely disappeared from
the list of crimes.
In addition to the usual duty patrols,
escorts accompanied HIb Excellency,
the Governor-General, in his visits to
the various parts of the Territories, and
all the transport required for himself
and party was provided without extra
expense. His Excellency was pleased
to express his gratification at the appearance aud efficiency of the different detachments that cuino under his immediate observation.
The season has been very unfortunate
for Indians living on the reserves, where
farming occupied most of their time, as
the extremely dryjweather has rendered
crops vory unsatisfactory All the
Indians in the Territories have behaved
remarkably woll this year, except the
Bloods who givo a good deal of annoyance.
The liquor question is in nearly tho
same position as it waB last year; there
iB still a considerable outcry against the
enforcement of tho Act in the various
towns, but not nearly as much as last
year. It Is generally conceded that permission to brow beor in tlie Territories
under proper restrictions would have a
beneficial result. Great inducements
are held out to our mon to allow liquor
to come in without permit, and in one
instance $1,000 wus offered to a corporal
to go on pass for threo weeks.
We still continue to purchase only
western horses raised on the prairie,
and aa the class of these horses is improving rapidly, wo see no reason for
again purchasing in the cast. The best
stallions for our purpose are, I think,
those of tho Quom ranch I regret
to Inform you that there will be a large
increase in the cost of forage this year.
Tho extreme drought caused hay to be
a light crop all ovor and at Maclood it is
of indifferent quality, although costing
$26 per ton, Every endeavor was
made to got good hay, but little could
be had ana thut was hauled 40 miles and
over. Oats have gone up enormously
everywhere, exceptatEdmontonandFort
Macleod where, tho price Ib about the
samo as hist yoar. The price at Battleford. whore there is no crop, being $1.25
per bushel Tho best hay at Regina
lias been purchased from Indians who
haul it over 80 miles. It takes a little
over 900 lbs. of hay per month for each
horse.
The recruits, numbering 163, tba*
have joined during the last year are
generally very fine men and well adapted for our service. The time of 122
men expired during the year, and of
that number 72 re-engaged without leaving, and 17 who took their discharge
have since re-joined. Only 7 men deserted from Regina this year against 22
last year. The discipline of the force is
steadily improving, and with the exception of somn drunkenness there have beon
no serious offonceB. Tho salary of the
Assistant Commissioners is only $1,600
f>er annum. Tho worst paid men in the
orce are the veterinary surgeons: the
senior only receives 1700 per annum
and no kit, and the junior $600. The
shooting of the force generally has
greatly Improved this yeur. The deposits In the Government Savings Bank
alone this year havo amounted to $32,
1)29.47, being greatly in oxccbb of any
previous year. 1 think the total savings
of the force during tho past year is considerably ovor $40,000.
Tho report goes on further to say that
tho force is made up as follows: Ono
commissioner, one assistant commissioner, eleven superintendents, one
senior surgeon, thirty-two inspectors,
five assistant surgeon.), two veterinary
surgeons, fifty-two staff Borgennts, fifty-
six sergeants, sixty-eight corporals, eight
hundred and sixteen constables; total,
1,046; eight hundred and seventy-five
horses, sixteen ponies, two mules. Total, 893.

THAT GUARANTEE BUSINESS.
Tub Vancouver moinlng paper Ib talking itself out of breath these times In its
feverish anxiety to do the behest of Its
masters in opposing the guarantee of
interest asked on behalf of the enterprise to construct an electric railway
between thiB city and Vancouver, In
its eager special pleading, it not only resorts to insinuation, decrying of the enterprise under discussion, and repeated
begging of the question, but does its
best to "darken counsel with words'
throughout. It is altogether unlikely
that tho tricky methods of argument
pursued by the Vancouver organ of
monopoly will have the slightest effect
upon tho Government, in Bpite of the
very patent designs and the unscrupulous meaiiB to that end of tho venal
writer. The Vancouver paper Is merely
exposing its animus aud demonstrating
afresh how little regard it has for the
truth in the many shifts, evasions, insinuations, nnd false statements to
which it has resorted in its fervid opposition to the guarantee in question.
The following sentence ia< characteristic, iu its egotism as well as its falsity,
of the style of the paper referred to:
" That the Government, in the face of
" the condemnation of the proposal to
" aid these electrical tramways by prac-
" tically everyone exceptUiobo interested
" in the schemes, will grant the nsBist-
" ance demanded, is very improbable.
" Its members are scarcely likely to
" commit political suicide," etc. The
News posing as tho people in this instance is pretty rich. Ab a matter of
fact, however, the only opposition to the
proposed guarantee comes from that organ itself as the mouth-piece of those
who are interested in defeating or else
delaying as much as possible the construction of tho projected electric railway between this city and Vancouver,
and tho determination to delay the
scheme, if it cannot bo defeated altogether, is apparent in the latest dodge of
the journalistic mouth-piece, which is to
urge upon the Government, on considerations of its own safety, to lay the
matter over until noxt session, after the
general election. In the course of a long
didactic rigmarole ns to what must be
done, aud how it must bo done, before
the Government can give any guarantee
such as is asked, the organ of monopoly
lays down this principal: "It will also
" be necessary to provide that no aid
" shall be granted hy the Province to
" any undertaking which shall directly
" compete with one constructed and
. " operated solely by private capital, as
" it would not be politic to injuriously
" affect private enterprise."
Without combatting the principle laid
down here, although one can easily
imagine exceptions where the rule would
be beat honored iu the broach, it would
be interesting to have the News furnish
an illustration showing tho application
of the rule to tbe specific case which Ib
the bone of the whole contention. But
the News will, of course, do nothing of
tho sort. It doesn't deal in illustrations, nor believe iu explicitness, but
rather loves the darkness, and to express itself in vagaries, generalities, in-
uendocs, tricky phrases, and fearful
and murky fulminntions. If the Government iB wise, it will not allow itself fo
be blinded by the smudge, but, discerning the emoulderings of a "strange fire,"
will ignore alike the special pleading,
the sophistry aud the bulldozing, and
aot in the matter of the proposed guarantee in the public and not in the monopolistic interest.
THE ELECTRIC STREET RAILWAY.
a presentation which should set at rest
the doubts of those who still believe the
electric street railway to have merely
arrived at Its experimental stage. In
that report the committee says; "If it is
" desired to make a change from horse-
" power, electricity will fill the bill to
" perfection, no matter how long or
" short the road, or how many passen-
" gers are carried. In the investigation
" of the subject the most satisfactory
" results havo been shown; It not only
" increases the traffic over a road, but
" reduces expense and actually enables
" ub to operate a line, which heretofore
" entailed a loss, at a profit."
The BUperiorlty of the electrical system Ib also evident in the command that
the driver has over the moving car. Although much greater speed is obtained
accidents are fewer in consequence of
this ability of control. The armature
can be reversed In a moment and the
car stopped within a shorter distance
than by any other method. The only
drawback in the use of electricity for the
propulsion of Btreet cars seems to be
that in most of the instances in which it
is at present employed overhead wires
form part of the outfit. The motor or
electrical engine on the cars which actuates the wh'j'jls receives force from
the wire over the track, and this enables a lighter type of ear to be used.
But considerable progress has been
made with a ear which contains its own
motive power iu a series of what are
called storage batteries, which are
placed under the seats. In some cities
those are already used, and to their development the attention of eloctrical
engineers is now being directed.
Boston is the city which has most
electric street railways at present. There
are nearly one thousand electric cars in
use there. Cincinnati has forty cars,
and is preparing for a large increase.
Cleveland, 0., has now several lines
operated by electricity, as well as Har-
rlsburg, Pa.; Kansas City, Mo. j Hartford, Conn.; New York City, and a long
list of others. The profits of the system
are greatly in excess of any of the old
methods, and, taking all these circumstances into account, it is not surprising
that there is a general movement towards its use.
SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Tub April number of Scribner's Magazine contains a very interesting and instructive article by Mr, Joseph Wetzler,
M. E., entitled "The Electric Railway
"of To-day." The subject is one of interest to our readers in view of the certain introduction at an early date of the
electric street railway into this city. Mr.
Wetzler says that it would not be unsafe to hazard the opinion that in ten
years there will not bo a single horse
railway hi operation in tho United
States. He draws attention to tho gain
that will be secured by tho removal of
thousands of horses from the streets of
cities, involving as it does the doing
away with noise and dirt. Going still
further, he contemplates the difference
between a stable, housing hundreds of
horses, a large ill-smelting building
whose odors are wafted for many blocks,
making the tenancy of houses In Its
neighborhood almost unbearable, and
therefore depreciating property, and a
neat substantial building equipped with
a steam plant and dynamos, and occupying hardly one-tenth of the space required for an equivalent number of
horses.
Discussing the superiority of the electric method of operating street railways
over every other, the writer demonstrates that it leaves all others behind.
The cablo system has Ub recommendations and is being successfully worked in
many cities. It is fnr ahead of horse-
cars. But when tlie cost of the cable Is
considered, and. tlie fact that under
favorable conditions only 18 per cent, of
tne power of the stationary winding
engine Is actually employed in tho propulsion of the cars, the remainder being
consumed in the more haulage of the
(joad. cable, and further that the difficulties of our northern winters are trying
to that description of traffic, it is evident
that eloctriolty provides us with a bettor
method. Additional proof of this is
furnished by tho action of tho American
Street Railway Association. At their
last annual meeting, held at Minneapolis last September, a committee which
had been appointed to Investigate and
report upon electric railways submitted
From a consideration of deep sea sediment aud the Challenger observations
on the density of water at great depths,
M. J. Thoulet concludes that the circulation of the water between the equator
and the poles only affects a depth of
about a thousand yards. Below this
the water is perfectly quiet.
A new Greenland expedition has been
planned in Denmark by Naval Lieutenant Ryder, and will probably receive
the necessary appropriation^ some $75,
000. The paity is to consist of nine
persons, equipped for two years. They
will be landed on the east coast as early
as the Ice will permit, and it is proposed
that the region between 00° and 73° north
latitude shall be explored during the
summer.
A Powkhful Poison.—A new albuminous poison, of one hundred times
the power of strychnine, has been described by Prof. Kobert to the Bociety
of naturalists of Dorpat. It is extracted
from the scedB otAbrus Precatoria,which
havo long beon used as irritants and
anti-hemorrhage remedies, iu Brazil for
ophthalmia, and in India as a poison.
Entire English colonies are said to have
been murdered in India by pricks from
sharp points rolled up in tho seeds, the
mark left being no more than that from
the sting of an insect. The poisonous
principle causes death hy coagulation of
the blood corpuscles.
A Reviving Plant.—Several specimens of liygroinetric club moss from
Mexico have been presented to the
Royal Botanic Society of London. In
calling attention to them, the secretary
stated that these plants have the power
ascribed to the well-known rose of Jericho, of rolling themselves up like a ball
and becoming apparenty dead and then
reviving on being exposed again to
moisture. The specimens shown had
been kept in a dry state for three
months, but were again green and
flourishing. A similar reviving power
In a plant of Arkansas—the Polypodium
incanum, Pluck—has just been reported
to the Paris Academy of Sciences.
A Fish's Drum—Some fishes emit
sounds, and one of these, a "dramming"
fish (Ralistes Acukatus) of the sea about
Mauritius, has just been brought to the
notice of the Berlin Physiological Society by Prof. MccbiuB. During a visit
to the island named, this gentleman
caught a bright blue-colored fish, and
while holding it in his hand was surprised to hear from it a striking sound,
like that of a drum. No movement was
seen except n vibration of a portion of
the skin buck of the gill-silt. Examination showed that the sound is probably duo to n long, lever-like bone, one
end of which, by contraction and expansion of tho trunk, muscles," is movod
easily to and fro across the collar-bone
producing a crackling noise. The swimming bladder acts as a resonator, and
intensifies the sound into the drumming
heard.      _______________________

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 City Council has undertaken immense public works, and
a large number of public and private buildings are under con.
struction.
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 routos.
Noting all the foregoing facts New Westminster's future pros,
pority is assured, and no other city in the Province offers such
splendid inducements to investors.

A TE8T OF DEATH.
A FhjiloUn Telli of a Sore Way of Ascertaining If lift Is Extinct.
About onoe In so often the newspapers
ire filled with accounts of premature
burials, and journalists with abnormal
imaginations are in demand to paint tn
vivid colors the agonies that must have
been endured by the helpless wretches
who woke up and found themselves
dead. A few days ago such a ease was
reported in South Carolina. When the
coffin of a young girl who had recently
been buried waa exhumed the body was
contorted in a horrible manner, tbe
finger nails were deeply burled in tho
palms of the hands, the face was lacerated, and the appearance of the corpse
indicated that death had not finally
come without a fearful struggle. It was
a good story, and whether or not it was
a "fake," it will probably start the
fakers of the newspapers to work, and
there will be no lack of similar bloodcurdling tales for a month or two.
A well-known Chicago physician read
the yarn referred to, and he was so
muoh wrought up over it that he camo
to the office of the Herald to learn
whether the case was duly authenticated.
"There are plenty of people molder-
ing under the sod," ho said, "who wero
buried before life became extinct, hut
they were never made aware of tho fact.
Coffins nowadays are henno Meal 1 y
sealed, and there is not enough air in
one of them to bring a person to life out
of a trance. The lungs must havo n
certain amount of oxygen beforo the
heart will begin to act, and one full inhalation would oxhaust all of tho oxygo n
in ft modern casket, and tho lung..
would, of course, bo unable to tako another. All these stories of fearful sufferings endured by persons burled alive
are false; thero's nothing to them.
"No doubt bodloB are frequently interred while life Ib yet existent, but
this would not bo the case if every body
knew of a certain infallible and absolutely certain test of death. Such u
test I have. It has never, so fur as 1
am aware, been in print, and tho Herald
could do no better servioe to Immunity
than to publish It I was a coroner onco
upon ft time in one of the Southern
States. An old darky hod died suddenly, and I was called to sit upon tlir
body and determine the cause of death.
When I arrived the man had been deml
twenty-four hours, and the negroes ol
the neighborhood were preparing tu
hold the funeral. I impaneled a jury:
the family of the deceased testified to
the extent of their knowledge, but 1
was unable to find that the old fellow
had any disease sufficient to kill him.
I looked at the body and examined i:
carefully. Thon a thought struck im\
and I lighted a match and applied it to
the end of one of the finger* of the
corpse. Immediately a blister formed.
I had tho dead man put hack into hi
bed, appliod various restorations, ami
to-day the same old darky is alive und
well.
"That Is the test Do you see tin-
philosophy of it? If you are alive yb.
can not burn your hand without raisin;
a blister. Nature, in the effort to nn
tect the Inner tissues, throws a covori.t;
of water, a non-conductor of heat, hi.
tween the fire and the flesh. If yot
wero dead, and flatno should como in
contact with any part of your body, no
blister would appear, and the tlci.li
would ho burned. The blood has been
withdrawn from the arteries, and your
body is like so much beefsteak.
"All you have to do is to apply a
match to any part of the supposed
corpse. If life remains, however little,
& blister will at once form, Simple,
isn't it? Why, it Is so simple that the
most ignorant person in tho world cm.
apply it, and no expert physician coulu
settle the question of lifo or death any
more certainly. "—Chicago Herald.

THE  WESTERN   PLAINS.
Irrigation  the   Only   Meant   Promising
Profitable Crop*.
Prof. Frank H. Snow, of the Kansas
State University, said several years ago:
"But tho fact that thousands of newcomers, from Ignorance of the climate,
have attempted to introduce ordinary
agricultural operations upon the so-
called plains, and havo disastrously
failed in the attempt, has placed an undeserved stigma upon tho good name of
Kansas in many far-distant communities, and has undoubtedly somewhat retarded immigration during the past few
years. It Ib time for the general recognition of the fact that, except In tho exceedingly limited area whore irrigation
Is possible, the wostorn third of Jfansus
is beyond tbe limit of successful ugri-
1 oultufp;" Tho sovore seasons pf drought
wfeiph. Imve occyrrod since the above
con.ewativo statomont was written
show the whole truth of the matter to
be that tbe westward advancing line of
settlement Ib by no means an Uohyetal
one, but that it is merely a line representing in a way the ovorflow of tho population of our Eastern States, It needs
but a slight acquaintance among the old
settlers In Central Kansas to know that
they fear nowadays excessively dry
weather as much as thoy did twenty-five
years-ago. The people who live farther
west are losing faith in the idea of an
increased rain-fall, as Ib evidenced by
the fact that over two hundred linear11
miles of main canals have lately been
constructed for irrigation purposes
nearly as far east as Kinsley, in the
Arkansas valley of Western Kansas. In
the Platte valley, in Nebraska, large
irrigating systems are at piesent being
projected.—Stuart O. Henry, In Popular
Science Monthly.

It ia safe to say but few people havo
ever been fortunate enough to catch a
toad in the act of changing his skin. A
man who professes to have been an interested eye-witness to suoh a transaction describes tbe novel operation.
The toad pressed his elbows against
his sides downward. After a few smart
rubs iiiaskin began to burst open along
> his baok, but he appeared to be unconcerned, and kept on rubbing until ho
had worked his skin into folds on his
| sides and hips.
Then, grasping one hind leg with his
I forelegs, he pulled the skin from the
| leg as slick as a man would remove a
Ipalf pf cants, then stripped the other
Ihlnd leg in the same way. He next took
■the cast-off portion of his cuticle and
Ipulledi. forward between his forelegs
luntll ho could catch it in his mouth,
Iwhereuponho forthwith began to swallow if, then by raising and lowering his
\tead, swallowing as the head bent forward eaoh time, he stripped off the akin
|nnderneath until it oame to his forelegs,
At this stage of the curious proceedings he grasped one of the forelegs with
Ihe opposite paw, and by muoh pulling
■tripped off the skin; ohangtng hands,
lie stripped the other, and by a slight
notion of tbe head, all the time swal-
Jlowlngi he drew it from the neok and
■swallowed the whole.  The entire operation occupied but a few minutes.

' Tlie Steamers sold.
The sale of the steamers Kainbow and
Amelia to the Canadian Pacific Navigation Co., has been completed, despite
the repeated assurances of the pincipals
in the deal that no such arrangement
waB in progress. By the new deal
Messrs. Turner, Beeton & Co. have disposed of their steamers to the C.P.N.
Co., and the only service for the present
between the two ports, Victoria and
Westminster, will be the latter company's regular liners. It is not expected that the new arrangement will make
any material difference in freight or
passenger rates, as a heavy advance in
rates would naturally tend to decrease
the trade between the two cities to their
mutual disadvantage and direct it into
other channels.

construction Is also in full swing, the
contract for the line from Whatcom to
the boundary having been let about 10

not be overlooked in this discussion,
which somo of our correspondents recognize, und which can hardly be sue*
cossfully controverted, and that is, that
a much better ferry than tho present

Church Parade.
The Artillery and Rifles paraded ii

standing tho stormy and very disagreeable weather, and marched to Holy
Trinity church to attend divine service.
The men made n Hue appearance, and
thoir trim and soldierly hearing was
favorably commented ou by tho large
crowd that assembled to witness the
parade, The church had been beautifully decorated for the Easter Sunday
services with natural flowers of great
variety. These wore artistically blended and made into wreaths, festoons and
bouquets, and arranged with a fine display of taste on the altar, reading desks,
font nnd pulpit, the latter being almost
hidden from view by the mass of lovely
flowers,
His l-oidshlp, the Bishop of New
Westminster, conducted the services
and preached the sermon, taking for hia
text!. Colloslans, 1st chap. 3rd verse.
The sermon was both powerful and impressive, aud every word was listened to
with the keenest attention hy the very
largo congregation that crowded the
church.
After tho service the parade inarched
buck to the drill shed, und before being
dismissed were addressed by Captain
Scoullar who announced that Lieut,-Col.
Holmes had expressed great satisfaction nt the manner in which the inspection had pussed off. The drill and discipline was much better than iu former
years, and tho men were generally
smart In appearuuee and soldierly in
bearing.

Catholic cemetery at Sapperton.   The
quently Ib one of the very oldest in the
Province, and the large fortune amassed
by Mr. Cunningham tells the tale of its
success. The new firm proposes to
maintain the some leading position In
the hardware trade of the Province that
was held by its predecessor, and will
succeed In doing so. One of the firm
will shortly leave for the east on a purchasing tour, and will choose a full stock
in the hardware and crockery b*ne. In
the course of a few months they expect
to be thoroughly supplied in every line
with a stock second to none in the Province, and in a position to supply a
large share of the jobbing trade ot the
City and district. The Columbian

or has been pleased to make the following
itppolntments;

Esquire, a Justice ol tha Peace with jurisdiction
over the Electoral Districts of Cariboo and Lillooet, to be a Justice of the Peace within and
for the Province.
Johd HUbert, of Nanalmo, Esquire, to be a
Justice of the Peace within and lor the County

CORRESPONDENCE.
THE HRIDUE QUESTION.
KniToit Columbian—Sir: I see that
the communications re bridge or ferry
are coining thick and fast. Two of these
that appeared in Saturday's issue advise
asking (by the Council) for plans, etc.,
with cost of bridge, and one of them Is
desi runs that the sum of $1,000 be offered
for best plan, and, not content with the
bridge business alone, suggests that the
water works be included in the racket.
Such wild Ideas may suit some people,
but I think the Council has had enough
of that sort of thing already; it sounds
very like boodle. If it waB the building
of n cattle pound or atenas fire hall, such
advice might not be amiss, but it is not
every so-called engineer, though he iuay
bam a shingle over his door, that is
e of drawing plans, etc., for a
bridge, or telling the cost.
The proper course for the Council to
take (if it is thought advisable to ascertain the cost of a bridge), is to select
the site, which is already pointed out
hy nuture—between the Crescent and
the end of the Yale Road at Brownsville
—employ a careful surveyor—the city
engineer—to take soundings of the*rive*r
and make a profile between the bluff
near the old battery and the south side
of tho river and then submit the question, us to plan and cost of a suitable
bridge, to some known bridge engineer,
and all that need not cost a very great
sum of money, and that would settle the
question at once. In the meantime, a
bettor ferry servlco could he established,
al less cost to the traveling public. It
is to be honed that the Council will not
lie induced to fool away money on thiB
business, unnecessarily.

This afternoon a vehicle heavily loaded

brick, {.truck one of tlie iiiiinuilM and
then began lushing them with the whip.
This was treatment that one of them
would not stand, and it commenced
kicking and jumping, finally throwing
itself, but without injury. With the
assistance of some bystanders tbe un-1
fortunate animal was released from its
perilous position, and with additional

their last token of respect to the memory
of the brave old pioneer. At the conclusion of tlio services the casket was hermetically sealed in a metal case and
then the cortege proceeded to the cemetery, It was ono of the largest funerals
ever seen iu Westminster, but It would
have boon much greater still hud tho sad
news of the deceased's death had timo
to spread through the rural districts.
It waa the intention to tako the remains to Antigonish for Interment, but
this was reconsidered, as Miss Chisholm

of the now linn. Mr. A. O, Campbell,

Kurly last year Ogle, Campbell A Co,

KniToii Columihan.—Sir;—There are
several points in the discussion now going on in your paper ou the above question upon which I want more light. If
I wero alone iu my darkness, I would
not venture to trouble you, but I believe
there ure quite a number of me, so to
speak. "More Anon" writes tbat the
bridge can lie built "without in the
least em bar rasing our finances"—which
Ib good news certainly, if tbo writer is
an authority, but be should either sign
bis name or give iih tho figures. My
own Impression is that the opening up
of tho streets, the completion of the
water works aud tbo building of sewers,
will take most of the cosh we can afford
for the noxt two or three years.
Now tho points on which I want light ]
are, bow much would a bridge cost, and
what would It do for us (that a ferry will
not do) to offset tbat cost?
What business is thore that would not
ho amply served for a number of years
to como by a really good ferry?
If wo do decide lor a bridge, bow Ion
will it take to build it; nud bow mucL
wilt the temporary ferry (for wo must
have one in the meantime) cost us?
Can wo (Kistpoilo, for the sake of ..
bridge, any of tbe works above mentioned? If st), which? If not, what will
tho debt and taxation of the city lie, say
two years from this date ?
Lastly, what has como over tho spirit
of our dream, that the railway, to blow
cold on which a year ago was almost a
banging matter, is now flouted as a thing
of next to no importance ?
Any of your correspondents who will
give us somo hard facte nnd figures on
those points, will make a valuable contribution to tbo discussion of tbo question i but I beg respectfully to submit
that anonymous expressions of individual opinion, however valuable in
their way, ean hardly be called "discussion" of such an important question
as this, whon it is, In the very nature of
things, a question of facts aud figures,
from which the element of sentiment or
predilection should be sternly eliminated. KsquiHKH.
The wife of tho now King of Portugal
Is a clover and enorgotlc woman, but
Iter relations with the queen mother, so
a bit of gossip auyi, are strained. A
short lime ago the elder of the two royal}
Indies found her daughter-in-law eugag-
cd in trimming a bonnet, anil bluntly
exclaimed; "When I allowed my son
Carlos to propose to you, 1 did not intend he should marry a milliner. Tlie
heads of tlie house of Uragama, beforo
him, have always married princesses,
and not tradeswomen. Your family
lost tbo Kretich throne by its cheeseparing economy. Buy your bonnets;
and since you must bo stingy, be so in
some other way."
