Ought U he Hanged.
Pbxscott, Ariz., Mar. 14.—Dan Burke,
who was sent to warn the settlers along
Wossayampa river of the danger of tho
breaking of the Walnut Grove dam, has
been discharged. Instead of doing as
directed and thereby saving fifty or sixty
lives, Burke became beastly intoxicated
and made no attempt to perform his
mission. He was arrested by Sheriff
O'Neill shortly afterwards, on charge of
manslaughter, while trying to leavo the
country, but has now been released on
the ground that there is no provision in
the laws of Arizona under which he can
be punished, although tbe entire responsibility for the loss of over 60 lives can
be laid directly to him. Immediately
on being released from custody Burke
celebrated the event by drinking and
carousing. Public indignation against
him Ib very strong here.
Sailor. Wanted.
San Fbancisco, Mar. 14.—The scarcity ol sailors, particularly for deep
water vessels, Ib making itself felt and
boarding masters are offering every encouragement for sailors to ship. The
advance money, which legally is but
$40 per man, has been exceeded, it Ib
said, and now $60, $00, $70 and oven $80
is said to be offered by some masters
who aro anxious to secure men.

Short of Fuel.
Halifax, March 14.—The steamer
Bratzberg, 10 days from Hamburg, for
New York, put in here thiB morning
short of fuel, having encountered heavy
head gales. In order to reach this port
she had to bum. her wood work, ropes,
fenders and stages.
A Wealthy Contractor bead.
Halifax, Mar. 14.—Henry Peters, a
retired contractor and builder of this
city, died rather suddenly this morning.
He was a native of Quebec and very
wealthy.   ___________

San Fbancisco, Mar. 14.—Fair weather, followed in the western portion by

San Fbancisco, March 14.—To-day a
customs inspector while guarding the
steamer City of Puebla, which arrived
from Victoria last night, arrested Rudolph Put)s, a fireman, while he was
leaving the vessel with three tins of
opium concealed under his coat.
Into the Hirer.
Mansfield, Ohio, March 14.—Tho fast
vestibule train No. 5 on the central division of the B. & O. R. R. ran into a land
slide a few miles cast of Newark this
morning. The engine was thrown into
the river and fireman Thomas Boland
killed. Engineer John Moore and nn
engineer riding on tho engine as a passenger, John Hart, were seriously injured. Four of the passengers were hurt
and all received a shaking up.
A Wonderful Mirage.
Ashland, Peun., Mar. 14.—A remarkable instance of mirage was witnessed
here yesterday about four o'clock in the
afternoon. It presented the picture of
a clear and well defined city, full sized,
though, of course, inverted. It appeared like a large city suspended in tlie air
or falling through it as the ground on
which it stood was not reflected. The
church steeples and walls of'houses
were slightly inclined. The phenomena
seemed to be only a few hundred yards
above the earth, and was visible for
nearly three-quarters of an hour. It
was clear aud calm with a cloudless sky
and many spectators claimed that the
city reflected was Mansfield, 80 miles
distant;others that it was Sandusky,
06 miles away. Each party professed to
recognize buildings in those places.
Great Kaln Fall.
New Orleans, Mar. 14.—Rain has
fallen now 64 hours along the river, the
total fall exceeding five inches. The
river here has risen one and a half
inches in the past 24 hours. The Government gunge this morning shows 10
feet and six-tenths, a fall of four-tenths
from the highest point readied yesterday afternoon. The streetB here are
free from overflow except at St. Peter's
street, and It is slight there. Tho private levee on Davis Island Lake, Concordia, has given way, flooding several
plantations. The npriver situation iB
unchanged; the water in most places
continues high and is rising slowlv at
several points,
Eaten by Coyotes.
Tombstone, Ariz., March 14.—The
posse that left the customs house nt San
Pedro on Tuesday last for tho scene of
the killing of two men by tho Apaches,
returned this morning nnd reported
finding the remains on tho Boot where
they had been first seen. The Italian
who brought the news to the customs
bouse stated that the bodies were in a
good state of preservation when he found
them at first, but a ■ ghastly sight met
the vision of tho posse on I heir arrival.
The lies!) had been entirely eaten from
tbe bodies, and nothing btit their skeletons remained. The head of ono wasall
that there waa In sight, tho balance of
the remains having been dragged off by
coyotes. Not a vestige of anything remained by which they could bo identi-
The Sugar Market.
New Yobk, March   14 Willott &
Gray's sugar circular says quotations
aro slightly easier on account of purchases during the week in producing countries, particularly of the best sugar. The
present situation is favorable for fair
profits in refining, and less is heard from
competition of refiners. Licht's estimate of the local crop is now 866,000
tons, against 2,786,444 tons last season.
He estimates an increased cultivation
for tho noxt crop in all countries as the
result of the Inst campaign has been satisfactory to producers. There remained
for export on Feb. 1st in Germany nnd
Austria 836,000 tons, against 440,000 tons
at same time last yoar. This groat increase would lie considered serious wore
it not for the rapid Increase of consumption in Eurono nnd America, and the
fact that surplus stocks are hold In the
best countries alone. Tho prospects for
Loulsianu crop are as good as in March,
1887, which was au exceptionally good
year.	
The Mexican, frotest.
San Dmao, March 14.—Last Sunday a
man named Bassinono was brought from
Tia Juana to servo a thirty da,VB sentence
in the county gaol, on a charge of creating a disturbance. The Mexican
authorities below the line have been
called into tho matter by some friends of
the Indian who contend I hat. the offender
had been arrested on Mexican soil by
American officers and taken for trial
without due process of law. Upon the
evidence produced before the Mexican
court, the authorities of that country, it

The Women's Humane Society intend
to present to the Ottawa City Council an ambulance waggon. They will
ask thein to accept it and keep it in repair. The society considers this step
necessary from the fact that accidents
occur frequently, especially in the-mills
and factories at the Chaudiere, and on
the variouB railways centering in the
city; and that it is desirable that the
rreatest care Bhould be extended to injured personB, whose lives very often depend upon careful conveyance to their
homes or to the hospitals. The ambulance which the society proposes to provide will be tbe same as that used by
the Toronto police force and will cost
$060.

introduced in the Senate yesterday. It
provides that every person who for the
purpose of obtaining wrongful information enters or is in any part of n place
in Canada belonging to Her Majesty,

or unlawfully obtains any document,
sketch, plan, model or knowledge of
anything to which he is not entitled, or,
being outside of these places, takes or
attempts to take sketches without authority, and every person who knowinc
Iv, having possession or control of sucl
documents or sketches, communicates
or attempts to communicate the same to
any person to whom the same, iu the
interests of tho state, ought not to be
communicated—all such persons nro
guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction are liable to imprisonment for one
year or to a fine, or both. Every person who commits any act declared by
this bill to be a misdemeanor, if he intended to communicate, to a foreign
state, any information, is guilty of n
felony and liable to imprisonment for

PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.
[From Our Own Correspondent.1
Wednesday** Proceeding! Concluded.
Mr. Duck moved the second rending
of the University Bill. He hoped the
day was not far distant when the Government could see its way clear to contribute something towards tho maintenance of a Provincial University. British
Columbia was the only province in the
broad Dominion of Canada that had not
one or moro universities. Even the
youngest province of all. Manitoba, had
a flourishing university. The principal
question, of course, was that of maintaining the institution once it was begun, and the university of British Columbia would have to be supported by personal endowments just us other institutions of a like nature olsewhere. There
are many wealthy people in this province and if tbey could arrango that at
their death a part of their wealth should
go to maintain tbe university a great
difficulty would be overcome. We have
no people in the province rich enough
of themselves to endow an institution of
this character. Our millionaires are
scarce and it is only once in a long while
that a rich man is philanthropic enough
to bequeath his treasures for such a
purpose. The free schools aro very
good in their way find cover a certain
amount of the ground, but if British
Columbia desires to keep pace with the
world's onward march of progress she
must have a university. We have many
young men and women here who desire
a university education and they must
go to other lands to obtain that higher
education and in this way their affection
for their native province became alienated. This bill is for the purpose of
founding an institution where our sons
and daughters may receive the great
benefits of the highest education right
at home; The university would be conducted on a purely non-sectarian and secular basis where no religious dogma
would be allowed to warn and interfere
with tho inculcation of tlie truth and of
knowledge, imparted on the most approved principles of science and modern
ideas of education. (Applause.) House
went into committee on the bill, Col.
Baker in the chair. Contmitteo rose
and reported progress and asked leavo
to sit again next day.
Tho Honso went into committee on
the Columbia and Carhonato Mountain
Railway Bill, Mr. Mason in the chair.

Houso went into committee on the
Okanagon and Kootenay Railway Bill,
Mr. Cowan in the chair. Committee

amendments, and report will be con
sidored Thursday.
Mr. Semlin moved tho third reading
of the Ashcroft and Cariboo Railway
Bill.   Bill read a third time and passed.
Mr. Cunningham moved that the
second reading of the Fraser River Gold
Gravel Syndicuto.Co. Bill be discharged
and the bill referred back to the Privato
Bills Committee with power to report to
the House.   Carried.
Mr. Anderson moved the second reading of the London and Canadian Fire
Insurance Company, Limited, Bill. He
said tho promoters of the company were
men largely Interested in this city aud

(1.) If on account of a sum being on

found to be unnecessary to levy the full
rate imposed by the by-law in order to
raise the instalment of the sinking fund
and interest required to be raised for
any year, or to raise such instalments
for any future years of the then unexpired timo which the debentures have
to run, the Council may pass a by-law
reducing the rate for such year or for
any such future years so that no more
money may be collected than the amount
required. No such by-law shall be

(4.) The by-law shall set forth a certain specific sum to be raised in each
year during the currency of the debt,
which annual sum shall be sufficient to
discharge the several instalments of
principal and Interest accruing due on
such debt, as the said instalments and
Interest become respectively payable

MR. CUNNINGHAM'S BILL.
On Wednesday Mr. Cunningham introduced his bill. " An Act for the En-
" couragement of Agriculture ondHorti-
" culture," into the Local House. Tho
Timet will note that it doesn't say a word
about " water," as that journal iu a
would-be facetious but drearily aqueous
article attempted to anticipate the other
day. Tbe principal object of the bill is
the incorporation of a society having for
its object the general advancement of the
interests of fruit growing and horticulture throughout tbe Province. Section
three provides that the Lieutenant-
Governor-in-Council may, by letters
patent under the great seal, grant a
charter of incorporation to any number
of persons not less than iifty who shall
petition therefor, constituting such persons, ond others who may become subscribers, a body corporate to be called
the " Horticultural Society and Fruit
" Growers'Association of the Province
" of British Columbia." It is further
provided that no such letters patent
shall issue until the fifty petitioners have
deposited with the Minister of Agriculture a declaration iu which each of the
petitioners shall agree to contribute
yearly towards the society a sum of not
less than two dollars. The society shall
have the power of making by-laws, not
lieiug contrary to the laws of the Province or to the Act incorporating it, for
its own regulation and for the affiliation
of other societies of a similar character,
and shall hold an annual meeting in the
month of January (besides other meetings that may be provided for by its by-
laws), at which the officers, to consist of
a president, vice-president, Becretary-
treasurer, and at least seven directors,
shall be elected. It shall he within the
power of the society to hold, at such
times and places as may be decided
upon at its annual or special
general meetings, exhibitions for the
display of fruits, flowers and vegetables,
for which prizes, etc., may be given; to
purchase seeds, plants and trees for distribution amongst tbe members, for the
purpose of experimenting and the introduction and cultivation of new kinds
nnd varieties; to purchase and hold
lands (with power to sell, lease or otherwise dispose of tbe same), and erect
thereon buildings, and obtain all necessary equipments therefor, for the purpose solely of experiment or instruction
iu the methods of horticulture, or holding exhibitions, or the establishment of
n museum of specimens pertaining to
the study of horticulture, to establish
and conduct a bureau for the collection
nnd dissemination of information bearing on tbe science of horticulture, or a
department or departments of natural
history having special objects iu view
for tho promotion of the said science,
and to do all these and any other things
not enumerated, within the scope of the
Act and the laws of the Province, that
may be be decided upon by the society
nt its regular meetings. Full annual
reports, embracing reports of the results
of all doings and enterprises of the
society, are provided to be submitted by
the secretary, a faithful and correct copy
of which shall be transmitted to the
Provincial Secretary on or before the
fifteenth day of January in each year.
A clause in the bill further provides that
the Minister of Agriculture may at any
time, nnd from time to time, nppoint
any person or persons to inspect the
books nnd accounts of any agricultural
or horticultural society in the Province
receiving Government aid, and that all
officers of any such society, whenever
required so to do, shall submit such
books aud accounts to such inspection,
and truly and to the best of their know
ledge answer all questions put to them
by such person in relation thereto or to
the funds of the society.
Mr. Cunningham's bill for the encouragement of agriculture aud horticulture appears to be a carefully prepared and exhaustive measure and is
certainly well fitted, as it is calculated,
to further the two great aud important
interests that Mr. Cunningham, both
by training and experience, is peculiarly qualified to advance. The bill substantially as submitted should receive
the unanimous support of the Houso,
and, after its passage, we have no doubt
that Mr. Cunningham's next move will
be to obtain reasonable Government
assistance for tbe society to be formed
under the Act, in which ho should, and
doubtless will, be equally successful.
HUXLEY ON HENRY GEORGE.
Ma. Hvxi.ky. according to nn exchange, has boon reading Henry
George'B ''Progress aud Poverty" lately,
but has evidently not been convinced by
its reasonings. While conceding its
admirable style and the ability with
which it is written, he cannot accept
cither its propositions or its conclusions,
though he does not call in question the
honesty of the author's purpose or the
intensity of his conviction that ho has
discovered the panacea for all the ills
that tho modern state is heir to. Mr,
Huxley finds what he conceives to be
the radical error iu Mr, George's book,
nnd the political system which it advocates in the confounding with ono another two things that are entirely dissimilar, that is to say, in the confounding assumed natural rights with those
moral rights which form the basis of all
practical politics. Following Rouosnay
and the physiocratio school, of which he
waa the founder, Mr. Huxley defines
natural right as "tho right of a man to
" do anything necessary for his own
41 preservation and to possess himself of
"anymeans of enjoyment." This,of
course, he shares not only with all his
fellows, but with every one of the inferior animals, and it must vest in the
individual before he has entered
into tlie social state, and must,
therefore, be antecedent to all forms of
relative justice and injustice. It is pos-
to its full and literal extent by
every and any wholly isolated man; but
the contemporaneous and contiguous
existence of many individuals who assert
and maintain this right must necessarily constitute a state of war in which
each is against all.
This doctrine, carried out to its logical
conclusion, seems to give to each individual man the right not only to slay
the inferior animals when they can in
this way be made to contribute to his
welfare and enjoyment, but to enslave
or destroy hiB fellowman, when by bo
doing hiB own individual interests can
be advanced by so doing. On this principle every individual man has not only
a natural right to the earth hut to all
tbe products of the earth, not excluding
man himself. He has, in fact, a right
of property in everything and everybody
bo far as he has the power to subordinate that thing or that person to his
own interests. And, of course, every
one who objectB to being enslaved, or
robbed, or killed and eaten by this individual is guilty of invading his natural
rights, though lie is at the same time
unquestionably acting within his own.
Thus does it appear that the natural
rights of man and man, as well as of
man and tbe inferior animals are diametrically opposed to one another.
They are rights to which no correlative
duties belong—rights of which the exercise may be impeded or prevented without the perpetration of wrong. ThiB
doctrine of "natural rights"—that is to
Bay, individualism pure and simple—
as Mr. Huxley points out, "if carried
'' out logically, is merely reasoned sav-
" agery, utter and unmitigated selfish-
" ness incompatible with social exist-
" ence."
It follows that if thiB view of natural
laws and rights be correct, they not only
do not afford any basis for anything in
the nature of a polity, but they are radically inconsistent with the very existence of anything of the sort. The moment that human beings enter into
combinations and become the subject of
social arrangements, they come under
the dominion of an altogether different
setoflawB by which their rights and
duties are defined. Hence it has become
an axiom in political science, that, in
dealing with the various problems which
it presents, the first step must be, as
Prof. Jevons expresses it, to rid ourselves of the idea that there are any such
things in social matters us abstract
rights. Whatever may be tbe nature or
value of the rights which nature confers
upon the individual, they cease to exist
when he comes to form a part of a community. There is not the least connection between the natural rights of the
solitary individual, and the moral rights
of the man who has entered into association with others. Indeed, they are diametrically opposed to one another.
The conclusion of the whole matter is
that the foundation upon which the
social fabric rests Ib not natural, but
moral law, a law which is the expression
of authority enforced by penalties, and
which, while it confers rights -at the
same time imposes correlative duties,
Aud if this conclusion is correct, as the
thoughtful render will readily perceive,
comments an exchange, it pretty effectually disposes not only of Mr. George's
theory, but of a good many other of the
speculative and   theoretical    systems
which have less or more currency iu our
day. ____■_________■____
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
on using it. This is human nature. It
is also a fact that the conductor never
turnB the weary away, partly perhaps
because be hasn't the heart to, and because the higher powers have never given him orders to that effect. This is
human weakness. But even with things
different, how could the conductor resist
determined, muscular and leg-weary
citizen? Physiclal violence would not
meet the case, and moral suasion is ineffectual before dinner, which iB the
usual hour for overcrowding. In fact
the whole question is a grave social
problem that ought to engage the closest attention of the world's philosophers.—Empire.
The new lease to be executed by Secretary Windom of the exclusive right to
take fur seals is apparently confined to
the islands of St. Paul and St. George,
Alaska. The lessees bear the name of
the American Commercial Company,
the capital stock of which Is $3,000,000.
The term of the lease is twenty years,
the rent $60,000; in addition to which
the company will pay a revenue tax of
$2 on each sealskin, 17.(12.^ for each
Bkin that may be shipped, and 50 cents
for each gallon of seal oil. Besides, it Ib
to furnish to the natives of the islands,
free of charge, such quantity of dried
salmon as the Secretary of the Treasury
may direct, as well as salt and barrels
for the preservation of meat. This
lease will bring an enormous Increase of
rent; the Alaska Fur Company paid
(300,000 a year; if 100,000 seals be
caught the Government will in future
receive about (1,000,000 a year. If the
operations of the company be confined
within the maritime jurisdiction of the
United States, the lease will in no way
interfere with the rights of other countries. When the contract was made
with the Alaska Fur Co. public attention
had not been generally directed to the
Bubject; the new lease is made at a time
when both Americans outside the company, and British subjects, aro equally
looking for the protection of their rights
in Behring Sea. It is not probable that,
under the circumstances, anything will
be done to interfere with theBe rights.—

Gillespie tb  Black.
A case involving the title to a valuable
lot on Hastings street, Vancouver, en-
giged the attention of the Supreme
ourt for a time Wednesday and was
then adjourned until Friday. In 1886,
Gillespie, one of the squatters on the
Granville lots, became indebted to Geo.
Black, and when his title to the lot in
question was admitted bv the C. P. R.
Co., he authorized the issuing of a title
from the latter to Black, which was
done. Since that time the lot has risen
in value and is now worth something
like (16,000. Gillespie disputes the conveyance, and brings this action to set it
aside. A number of Vancouver witnesses are in the city to give evidence.—

The Americans' love of gigantic tombstones and monuments is highly profitable to the Aberdeen granite merchants,

Apropos of the statement made that

average than ever before known.
A committee of the United States Sen
ate is endeavoring to ascertain how it is
that the newspaper correspondents at
Washington secure information with regard to the proceedings of that body
when in secret or executive session.
The newspapers, however, make no
secret of the source of their information:
they say that the "leakage" is not In
the Senate Chamber, hut in the Senators
themselves. Public opinion in the
United StateB is now in favor of the
abolition of the secret sessions. The
people rightly think that there is no
good reason why there should be any
mystery about the conduct of public
business. The spirit of tho age is not
favorable to "star-chamber" proceedings.— Mail.
Louis Sloss, the head of the old Alaska
Fur Company, says that the Government will make in the twenty years of
the new lease (14,000,000 more than
would have been realized by renewing
the lease to his concern, which, he says,
is more than they could have made at
the old prices for skins, and he claims
that a rise in price will lessen the demand proportionately. On the contrary, the higher the price tho more determined will be a certain class of femininity to havo them. If sealskin sacques
were (5 apiece they would soon be a
drug in tho market. At (600 each it

This somewhat unusual event in the
history of municipal politics Has produced talk of retaliation in the shape of
a by-law imposing penalties upon the

A CURED HEARTACHE.
Oh, dear lost heartache—sweetest pain,
When hours wero weeks and weeks were years,
And eyes had always room for tears,
How blest It was to pine and sigh,
To wait for letters, sick at heart
Of hope deferred—to kiss and part
On dim street corners In the rain,
To win a smile or madly feel
A frown divide the soul like steel.
Oh, loveliest misery 1   Why, why
Did we curtail that happy grief,
' Or make one darling pang more brief ?
For now the days are Bimply—days.
We purt each mom, each night wo meet;
We kiss and yawn, we talk and eat
In married life's calm peaceful ways..
But, oh, for those dour woes abjured,
And the sweet heartache that Is cured I
—Judge,
A SPECTRAL TRAGEDY.
Strange, Weird Experience In tbe
Far West
In the summer of 18T8 I was thirty
years of age—in perfect health and of
steady nerve. I was no believer In the
uncanny—hardly in the supernatural—
and had always pooh-poohed at tales of
ghosts, phantoms and visions of all sorts.
But at the time mentioned above the
oxporienoe I am about to relate put my
intellect and sensibility to tost In aucb.
a manner as to make me sparing henceforward of ridicule and forced mo to find
a place in credenoe for the possibility
of apparition.
It is unnecessary to explain how I
camo to be traveling in the far West
without companions, except for horse
and dog and gun. Following tho general route of the old overland trail, I
camped one night in the edge of a considerable forest and at a point from
which I oould look forth over a broad,
open plain,
It was already after sundown. The
good horse was pioketed, and, having
provided a supper for myself and the
dog from a rabbit which my dog had
brought down an hour or two oarller, I
disposed things for the night, and, as
the stars camo out, lay down to sleep,
comfortably rolled in a blanket.
It was probably in the small hours of
night that I awoko and rose to a sitting
posture. The moon was climbing the
eastern sky, with not a feather of oloud
in her course, and every object stood
forth as clearly as in the day.
But it was not for me to contemplate
tn quietude the rare beauty of the night.
In almost the first moment of consciousness my eyes fell upon a slowly-moving
object in the distanoe. It was one of
those oanvas-oovored wagons, the "prairie schooners" so familiar in the early
days of overland travel to California.
It was approaching almost directly toward me and my curiosity was at once
aroused. Why any one should be traveling thus and so late at night I could
not imagine. The movement was heavy,
as if the horses wore jaded, and tho man
who walked by their sido had a weary
stop.
Twenty-minutes passed, the vehicle
approaching nearer and noarer. Still
on it came, until when about thirty
yards from me it suddenly stopped, and
the man looking about seemed to bo
considering tne wisdom ot muiongoamp.
At this point I suddenly realized that
the approach of tho wagon had been utterly noiseless. Not a chuck of the
wheels, not tho sound of a step either of
horse or man. And furthermore there
was no indication that I had been discovered, although I should have been as
visible to this man as ho U> me. What
could this mean? Was 1 dreaming? Nok
I was nevor more awake. Was this
hallucination? No, for the dog, who
had been aroused by my movement in
awakening, now turned his head In tho
dlreetion of tho new arrival and uttered
& low growl. I laid my hand on him to
keep him quiet
Tho man now stood by the forward
wheel, looking in at the opening of tho
canvas top, und though I heard no voice
I imagbiod that he was speaking tosome
ono within. A woman's head appeared
and after a glance around gave a nod of
assent und tho man proceeded to unhiir-
ness the horses and turn them louse to
graze. Then, after a moment, In which
ho seemod to bo anxiously surveying the
trail over which they had come, he
helped the woman to alight.
And now their movements greatly
puzzled mo. Walking to and fro thoy
Boomed to bo searching for some particular spot of ground. As I said above,
I had selected my camping-ground in
the outer edge of the forest. They
wero moving about therefore amid
mingled shadows and moonbrums, but
every motion was visible Finally tho
woman pointed a space between two
young trees, and tho man after looking
at it for a moment wont to tho rear end
of the wagon and brought fosth a spade.
With the edge of this implement ho
marked off a rectangular space about
Ave foot by two, and began to dig. All
this, lot It he remembered, was In absolute Bllenoe. Hero were apparently
living beings, actively engaged, and not
mure than ono hundred feet away, and
yet no sound was borne to mo on the
quiet air.
By this time my curiosity had turned
to marvel. Hero was a contradiction of
Common sense! I could not believe that
what I saw was real; these beings must
bo apparitions. And yet here by my
sido was tho dog, aa alert as I, and
trembling with an impulse to Investigate, while obedient to my hand of restraint.
The digging proceeded, and the soil
being soft, some five feet of depth was
soon reached aud then the man throw
out the spade upon the ground. The
woman meanwhilo hod been plucking
branches of evergreen, bringing thorn
in armfuls and throwing them beside—
"the grave," I thought And now, with
the utmost bare and patience, the whole
cavity wus lined with these sprigs of
evergreen, hold in plaee by twigs thrust
into the banks on either side.
This done tho man sprang out  The
two surveyed their work for a moment,
and tlion, after gazing onoe more, as if
in anxiety, over the route by which
they hod como, they approached the
wagon.   Having rolled up the canvas
on ono aide they lifted out a small
mattress, depositing it upon a blanket
which thoy had spread upon the ground.
The mattress was not without Its bur-
don.  The beams of the full moon enabled mo to see thereon a slight form—
thatof a little girl who hod scarcely lived
out three years. The pretty white hands
wore folded over the  breast.    Long
golden curls fell upon tho pillow.   The
faco which I oould see with astounding
clearness was wonderfully beautiful in
its aspect ot innocence and wore a lifelike smile, as if in answer to tho radiant
queen of the sky, who seemed to be
smiling, too, as she looked steadfastly
down upon tho living and tho dead.
The mother forthwith proceeded to
arrange the spreads upon the child,
tucking them and smoothing them
i down as if she wero only putting her
little one to bed, although while I heard
no sob nor any expression of grief I
could see that her breast was hoavlng
with sorrow and her face was visited by
tours,
The two now knelt on either Bide,
kissing their darling many times and
weeping over her, though trying apparently to comfort ono another In tholr
mutual wretchedness, if porohanoe there
might come In their hearts a ealm like
Unit with which tho moon was still
sending down her beams to Illumine the
tearful scene,
Then laying hold of tho blanket thoy
carried their darling to the grave, and
by the aid of the bridle-reins let the
preoious burden down into the place
whioh they had so carefully prepared.
Green boughs were scattered over her
until they covered the beautiful form
many inches deep, and then the clods
were gently replaced, and a little mound
was heaped, and the ohild transferred
from her mother's bosom was sleeping
at last in the bosom of the greater
mother—Earth. The two Sad mourners
knelt again beside the grave, and
seemed to be engaged in prayer, lifting
their faces now and then to the sky as
if in its indefinite elear depths they saw
the future hopes.
All this-though I still thought it
unreal—had awakened in me the keenest interest and sympathy. But my attention was now suddenly diverted to a
line of figures in the distanoe, somewhat beyond the spot where I had seen
the wagon when I first awoke. Those
were horsomen, who oame sweeping on
at a rapid pace, as if engaged in eager
pursuit From the manner in which thoy
rode I knew they were Indians. Ah! I
saw it all now and understood why these
spectral visitors had so often looked
baok apprehenslvoly in the direotion
from which thoy had approached. These
pilgrims across the plains had seen Bigns
of savages and had used night to push on
beyond their roaoh, if haply they might
bury their dead In peace and find safety
for thomselves. But tho foe had discovered their trail and followed them,
bent on massaore.
I laid my hand instinct! voly on the
rifle under tho edgo of my blanket that
I might join In the defense, and was
about to ory out tn warning of the danger that I saw approaching, hut instantly bethought myself that this was unreality; a more vision, calling for no
practical action, and I might hotter let
these Bhadows work out their tragedy to
tho end. I again restrained the dog,
who seemed agitated, whether because
ho saw what I was seeing, or" out of
sympathy with my omotion—I know not
whtoh.
.The two at the grave seemed unconscious of the threatened danger until
their enemies wero within tt few hundred yards, whon the man sprang up and
lifted the woman also to her feet They
turned toward tho wagon as if to gain
its shelter and secure weapons for defense. It was too late. I saw flashes of
fire and also a flight of arrows, still
without a sound, however, to break the
ealm of tho night.
Both tlie man and woman staggered
as if wounded. They stopped and
turned face to faco, throwing their arms
about each other as If realizing that this
was their last embrace. Anothor volley, and, still clinging to each other in
the agony of death, they fell together
upon tho grave of their child.
Tho Indians were not long in completing their work. Then catching tho
horses and harnessing them into tho
wagon thoy hastened away, as though
themselves in fear of pursuit. I watched
them until thoy disappeared, and then
was alone with my thoughts and the
brilliant night.
I realized that I had soon a vision,
and though I turned myself resolutely to
rest my sleep for the remainder of tho
night was fitful.and disturbed. Whon
flnully 1 awakened again the sun hud
risen, and under the influence of that
great dispoller of illusions and in spite
of tho vividness of the night's experience I began to think that after alt I
might havo boon only drowning, especially when I saw the Bpuco whore I had
Been tho burial and tho tragedy that followed was not open and clear but overgrown with brush and young trees.
Nevertheless, yielding to a curiosity
of which I was meanwhilo almost
ashamed, I soon made my way up into
tho hushes. Parting these with my
hands as I went forward, and scanning
the ground closely, I shortly experienced
a new shook of surprise. For there, in
the exact spot marked hy tho night
scene, was a little mound, nnd over tt
tho remains of two skeletons.
And now for a retrospective foot
which gave to this weird oxporienoe of
the night a personal significance. While
I was yot a lad in my toons my brother,
twenty years older, hud taken his young
wife and only child aud set out across
tho plains in pursuit of fortune The
molls had brought homo tidings of tho
progress of their journey up to a certain
point Beyond this all trace was los t,
and we never heard of thorn again.
I have not boon able to account satisfactorily for what I havo related, Was
this an indubitable information vouchsafed to me from another world as to the
fate of my relatives? If so, why was tt
resorved for this time and placo? Was It
impossible that I should huve this vision
elsewhere? And If this is the ease, then
why? Had nature photographed these
tragic scenes and preserved their reflection, to reproduce them for an eye that
was fitted by some occult law of sympathy to behold? Let thesavantsanswer
if they can —I can not—Edward B.

A DRUMMER'S  RU8E.
Hit Lively Etperl«nee In a Disastrous
Georgia Hurricane.
"Drummers aro capable of doing some
slick things when they want to." The
speaker was an ex-drummer. "I knew
a young member of tho 'profosh,'" he
continued, addressing a Savannah News
reporter, "who played a good ono on a
tobacco house in Savannah on one occasion,
"A severe hurricano passed over the
southwestern portion of Georgia, and
the young drummer happened to be
down In that section at the time. The
firm hero know that he was thero, and
they were alarmed. Thoy wlrod, but
were unable to got a reply to any of
tholr dispatches, as tho linos in that
section were on tho ground. The
tracks wero washed and trains did
not move for a week. The young
drummer, failing to get word from his
house, and being unable to loavt
where he was stopping, foil In with a,
company'of young mon and had a royal
big time. He had some prtio sample
cigars, and ho opened box after box, and
thoy wore smoked up. He had a good
deal of premium chewing tobacco, and
the country hoys helped him chow it
When the weod ended he was without
samples. During the excitement he did
not stop to think In what a predicament
he would bo when he would start out with
a score of empty grips, He 'stuck' by tho
town, onjoytng himself with the boys,
until toward tho end of the week, when
be received a dispatch from tho houso
reading like this: 'Are you kilted? Wire
particulars.' It flashed in his mind to
put up a pitiful story, and he sent them
this: 'Not dead. Escaped with my life.
Samples gone; send more' It was a
groat hit. Tho proprietors replenished
the sample oases, and, in addition, sent
tholr representative sovoral boxes of
fine Havanas for his own use,"
The young man made his rounds on
the extras and oame Into the city as
fresh as you please, receiving the congratulations of friends and the firm.
NOT  THE  LAST  DECADE.
A. D. 1901 Will Be the lint Ten In tbe
Twentieth Cental-?.
The newspapers aeem to bo bound to
mislead the public in regard to the
calendar of years, as they have so frequently done on every opportunity, and
most notably of all within the recolleo-
tion of the present generation, In the
year 1850. It takes fifty full years to
make half a century, says the New York
Mail and Express, and consequently
every body finally saw and acknowledged that 1851 was the beginning of
the second half of the nineteenth century, although the newspapers with al-
mo|t entire unanimity had led oft in
announcing 1850 to be the commence-
ment.of that half century. On a similar
principle It takes ten full years to
mako a decade, and the silly talk of
1890 being the commencement of the
last decade of the present century is
only another repetition ot the blunder
so easily committed on this subject,
The same kind of an error will undoubtedly be committed on the first day
of January, 1900. The slip-dash, hullabaloo newspapers will blow up the
trumpets that that Is the beginning ot
the twentieth oentury, whereas the
plain, arithmetical truth Ib that tho
whole of the year 1900 will belong to
the nineteenth oentury, and the first
day of the next century will be January 1,1901, Let us illustrate this in
such a way that even a ohild can understand it:
The thing proved is that ten years
make a decode and ten deoades make a
century. The mere changing of the
digit from 9 to 10 does not make a year,
nor will the obanglng of the numbering
of the years from 1890 to 1600 make a
yoar. The full year 10 belongs to the
first deoado and the full year 1900 belongs to the nineteenth century, The
following table will more fully explain
it:

It Ib therefore perfectly clear that
this A. D. isoo is the Inst your of tlie
ninth decade ot the nineteenth century,
and not the llrst year of its lust or tenth
decade.
In 1850 we remembered hearing a
very eloquent divine who hud entered
into the contest on philosophical and
historical principles, ns lie asserted,
who was at tlrst so thoroughly convinced that 1850 began tho Becond half
of the ntnetecth century that ho declared he was just as sure ul it as lie was
that thero wus a Ood in Heaven. We
wero extremely shocked lo lieur such 11
declaration frtuu the pulpit, and remarked that tlie divine did not understand himself, foe In reality lie was
much more sure of the latter than of the
former part of his proposition; und it
was only about six months from that
timo when we had tho good fortune to
again bo present in his church when he
publicly acknowledged und confessed
his error, deplored tho seeming profanity of which lio hud been guilty, und
took baok all his theories that the your
1 had begun at the commencement of
the seoond year of tho Christian era,
and consequently that the twelve
months preoedlng were, and ough t to bo,
marked only with a cipher, as If thoy
did not occur in any year, and admitted
that the commencement of the second
half of the nineteenth century was still
some six mouths in the future, He advised his congregation nevor to follow
his example of allowing the heat of debate so to obscure their vision and
warp their Judgment as to insist upon
the invincibility of any position which
they were led to tako from a superficial
understanding of the subject.
Tho Drench Government seems determined to make the "pleasant land ol
Franco" as unpleasant a land as possible
for foreigners to live in. An order hui
boon lssuod by tho Mlni-'nr of the Interior with a view to rendering Btil
moro stringent the existing regulation
about the residence of foreigners. Ac
cording to this a foreigner domiciled in
Franco will now havo to go through the
whole elahorato business of reportiii|>
himself to the police every time'In
wlHhos to move into another' commuui
or department.	
BEATING  A  LAWYER.
Bow a Farmer Made a Handiome 8am
Without Much Trouble.
One of the best gems of Allen, ot
Mississippi, says a Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune,
waB dropped the other night at Cham-
berlln's. Half a dozen congenial spirits
were seated together at a table and one
thing and another led Allen to reel off a
full dozen ot stories. The last one was
about his Tupelo constituent, Bill
Brown. Bill is an old farmer who owns
half the marshes around Allen's native
city. A year ago he bought a young
bull from a lawyer who is a shrewd fellow and known throughout Allen's district.
"Brown wasn't quite sura of his bargain." said Allon, "so every time tho
lawyer went that way he hedged so
much that tho lawyer grew extravagant
tn his praise."
"I tell you, Brown," said he, as he
rode by the farm-house, "that's the
finest animal tn tho whole country. I'd
ride any timo two miles out of my way
just to pass It in your moadow. I sold
it to you for 875, but I reckon it's
worth—"
"How muoh is it worth, cap'n?" said
the farmer.
"Well, It I was selling It to-day 1
wouldn't let it go for a oent less than
9350. It's worth that and I congratulate you on shaving me so neatly."
Bill Brown felt pretty good over the
bull, and every time he saw tho lawyer they talked about it, the lawyer always repeating that he would not sell it
for less than 8250.
The lawyer in the meantime had become couitsel for a Mississippi railroad
and had to appraise and settle all difficulties for the corporation.
One day as he sat in bis office loutish
Bill Brown came in, twirled his hat between his thumbs, and said In a wheedling tone:
"I reckon that 'air bull li ■ food for a
pert sum, cap'n."
"Certainly, Mr. Brown, oertalnlyj 9950
couldn't buy it of me if 1 still had It In
my possession."
"Well, eap'n, that 'air bull was run
over by yer railroad las' night, an' I
reckon you'll see that they pay me 9350
for it"

About 20 tons of potatoes have reached
the market during the last three days,
and the supply is now adequate to meet
all local demands. Prices continue firm
and there is little chance of a large decrease in value before the now potatoes

farmers to dispose of their surplus stock
without delay, for if reports are correct
there is still a large quantity of tubers
to find their way to the market.

An' What for Nn, Mnlmiear
Canada's clover comic join u tl, Grip, in
its last number to hand, March 8th, has
a quarter-page cartoon representing the
gallant Senator Mclnnes, of B. C, in all
the glory of bonnet ami foathur, tartan
nnd kilt, and bare knees, with one arm
akimbo holding a tack hammer, and the
other in a flourishing attitude pointing
to the following legend which he has
just tacked up on a dead wall: "Gaelic
shall be an official language, too,
whateffer!" Just underneath the figure
is the line, "Hielant too, an* what for
no, Mclnnes?" followed by the notice of
motion given by Senator Mclnnes in the
Senate recently, to the effect that Gaelic should be an official language »s well
as French. It is unnecessary to Bay
that the artist is Mr. J. W. Bongough,
who delighted Westminster audiences
last fall with his clever sketches and
performances on the public platform.

The repairs of the North Arm bridges
have boon commenced by tho contractors, the San Francisco Bridge Co. The
number of men employed as yet Ib
small, but tho force will be gradually increased as tho work progresses. 'Mr,
Balfour, the Government superintendent, is on hand, and all repairs and additions aro tiindt! under his direct supervision and orders. The fanners are satisfied that the work will be thorough
this time, and they have evory confidence In the ability of the superintendent to make the bridges what thoy were
at first intended to bo. It is expected
the repairs will occupy between two and
three months, and perhaps more if high
water should happen .to interfere with
operations. Lights are to bo placed on
the bridges at night as a guard to navigators, and to prevent the recurrence of
any such accident as happened the Btr,
Fairy Queen last fall.

Dr. Baldwin's  Lecture.
Dr. Orpha D. Baldwin lias arrived in
the City and will lecture to-night at
Herring's Opera House on "How to
make life worth living." Dr. Baldwin
had some trouble in reaching Westminster owing to the stupidity of the train
hands on the Atlantic express. The
conductor failed to mention that a
change for Westminster was made at
the junction, and the brakesman also
neglected to give the passengers
the accustomed warning. Iu consequence   of   riot knowing   the geo-
raphicul situation of the Royal City,
_)r. Baldwin was carried to Port Hammond, where Bhe was so fortunate as to
catch the str. Gladys and thus reached
the city. The Opera House should bo
filled to-night, ub it is quite certain the
lecture will be well worth hearing.
To-morrow afternoon at 3:30 o'clock
Dr. Baldwin will give an address to
mothers, to which girls over 15 years of
age will be admitted.

The Mendelssohn Club.
As will be seen by an advertisement
in another column the celebrated Men-
delsBohn Quintette Club,, of Boston, will
give one of their talented performances
at Herring's Opera House on Friday
evening, March 21st. Of this excellent
combination the Buffalo Courier Bays:
The playing of the Mendelssohn Quintette, Increased to a sextette, was an important part of the concert. The club
contributed three numbers, which were
enthusiastically applauded. Mr. Max,
Droge, the 'celloiat, played a movement
from Heinrich Hoffman's concerto,
which Ib a composition imbued with the
grace and purity of this musician's style.
The music was exquisitely played, as
was Aopper's dashing "Spanish Dance."
Mr. Ryan was unable to play the solo
announced for clarionet, and a violin
solo, with orchestral accompaniment,
was substituted. Mr. Ohliger, the violinist, is musical, well drilled, and an
artist. H1b boIo was encored, and he
responded with Schumann's "Trim-
mere!."

Afloat and Ashore.
The str, Adelaide experienced a rather
eventful trip up river this week. The
water Ib unusually low at present, and
places where the river steamers can ordinarily approach without trouble are
only covered with a few inches of water.
The Adelaide ran aground somo three
times in all, once at Sumas, again at
Chilliwack and lastly in a slough a short
distance above Langley. The steamer
Gladys assisted her oft on one occasion,
but in the other instances the steamer
was obliged to wait for high tide. A bar
is forming very rapidly above Langley,
so rapidly in fact that steamboat men
knew nothing of it, and it is not to be
wondered at that the Adelaide went
aground where no impediment was
known. At this point the steamer lay
from last evening until an early hour
this morning when she floated off and
reached port shortly before 6 o'clock.
These iniBhaps delayed the Adelaide
about 30 hours, but her experiences will
be of benefit to the other vessels plying
the river, as they will bo able to avoid
the bars she went aground on.

The Licenses to be Iisuod.
Yesterday Messrs. D. W. Port & Co.
tolegiaphed Mr. J. A. Mara, member of
Parliament for Yale district, asking him
to call upon the department and urge
the immediate issuance of fishing licenses. Mr. Mara evidently lost no time in
attending to the request, for this morn
ing a reply was received from him stating that tho Minister of Fisheries had
promised to authorize the immediate is
sue of the licenses. Mr. Mowat, Inspector of Fisheries, received no official infor*
matiou on the subject to-day, but it is
expected the order from the department
will come to hand within the week.
This morning a second telegram was
scut to Mr. Mara, asking him to muko
an effort to have the department issue
an order to Mr, Mowat by telegraph to
allow fishing permits until the licenses
are to hand. If this last request is granted it will givo general satisfaction to the
fishermen. Now that the issue of the
licenses has been ordered the leading
question is, how will they be divided?
Any attempt to cut down the number of
free licenses, from that issued last year,
aud the cannery licenses increased at
their expense, will not be satisfactory,
aud such a proceeding will be strongly
resented.
To-Morrow'a -Match.
Rain or shine, the football match between the Westminster nnd Vancouver
clubs will come off to-morrow afternoon
iu Queen's Park. The Vancouver team
lias been practising everyday thiB week,
and will consequently come over in the
pink of condition. The home team has
practiced twice, but on neither occasion
was the full team out. All things considered the odds should lie strongly in
favor of Vancouver, but after all Westminster may show a form that will sur-
Eriso everyone. Tho visitors will arrive
y the 2:30 train, and the match will
commence about a half an hour later.
The 4 p.m. train will be held two hours
to permit the Vancouver contingent to
see the match nnd return the same
evening. Following Ib the team chosen
to represent Vancouver: II H Mnekay,
full back; A B William It P Woodward, C Nicholls, Va backs; C H Woodward, J O Ben well, '., backs: R M

The charter for this company was
finally passed on the 5th iust. by the
legislature, and Mr. A. M. Herring, one
of tho directors of the company, tells us
that the work wilt be proceeded with at
once. Three of the company have Iwen
for some time examining the different
systems lu the United States aud Canada, and have selected the ve.iy best system now in use, both for street aud
house lighting. Plans and Bitecificatlons
aro now being prepared for the building
aud other works of the company. • Mr.
Herring received a letter from the president of the company, Hon. Senator
Mclnnes, yesterday, stating that the negotiations for the purchase of the plant,
etc., were progressing favorably, aud that
he expected to place the order with a
reliable company In a few days. Tho
company was very fortunate in securing
an excellent water power near the city,
by which they will lie able to effect a
saving to the shareuolders, as against
using Btenni, of many thousand dollars
per year. One advantage of the city being lighted by electricity, will lie that
the river in front of the city will bo as
navigable at any hour of the night as iu
the daytime.
The actual foundation of this company
is another evidence of the prosperity and
progress of Westminster, the Inception
of which Is due to two of our enterprising citizens, Hon. Senator Mclnnes and
Mr. A. M, Herring. Tho stock of the
company is being rapidly disposed of,
Hon. Senator Mclnnes is President and
Mr. A. M. Herring Is Secretary aud
Treasurer,

DOMINION    PARLIAMENT.
Curtwright Accuses the   Government of
Negligence—Interesting Immigration Statistic*.
(From Our Own Correspondent.)
Ottawa. March 14.—The House met
at the usual hour and Cartwright attacked the Government for their delay
in bringing down important measures.
He particularly attacked the Ministers
of Finance and Customs. He considered
that the Minister of Finance was negligent in not bringing the budget speech
before this date, and he took pleasure in
supporting Mr. Laurler's motion censuring the Government for the delay.
Hon. Mr. Foster defended the Government and denied the charges.
Mr. Lowe, Deputy Minister of Agriculture, appeared before the committee
on agriculture and immigration and
gave some interesting information on
the immigration into the Dominion for
the last calendar year. Of the total arrivals at all ports of Canada there settled in the country 91,600 persons, of
this number 31,000 souls were Canadians who had been for a time settled
in the United States, but returned to
remain in Canada, which, after all their
experiences, they found it to be the best
country for them. Manitoba and the
Northwest received the greatest number of these repatriated immigrants,
but all of the old provinces received it
portion each, especially Quebec.
The value of personalities brought iu
by immigrants in household effects tiud
money was $1,115,000.
The total cost of tho immigration service for the year, including literature,
agencies and all other expenses, was
$120,000, equal to about $137 per immigrant settled.
Several railway delegations waited on
the Minister thisjiuorning, one was from
Hamilton and the other from Toronto,

ELECTRIC TRAMWAYS.
The equatorial province which Emin
Pasha waa forced to abandon to at least
partial disorganization is not likely, observes au exchange, to relapse iuto the
savage condition in which Egypt found
it fifteen years ago. ThiB district is fertile and comparatively, salubrious, and
its development is not likely to be neglected after Lake Victoria Nyanza, from
which it is easily accessible, is brought
directly within the sphere of European
enterprise. Whether Emin r< turns or
not, his old province will not be relinquished, and either under the nominal
sovereignty of Egypt, or directly as an
annexation to the British Empire, the
Upper Nile valley is likely very soon to
pass into the control of tbe British,
whose East African territory, up the
whole length of which a railway is projected, already extends to with in few
days' march of Emin's old headquarters.
With Britain pushing across the Zambesi to Lake Nyassa and the central lake
region, and also westward to Nyanza, as
well as holding the practical control of
Egypt, it seems not unlikely that before
many years tho flag of Great Britain will
be a familiar emblem of empire the
whole way from the Cape of Good Hope
to the mouth of the Nile. Thus the
British Empire grows by force of circumstances to dimensions which a few
years ago were scarcoly dreamed of.

Proponed  Lines  of Klectrle   Tramways
from Lulu Island and the North Arm
to Westminster and Vancouver.
A scheme is now on foot to build au
electric tramway from Vancouver across
the North Arm to the south shore of
Lulu Island. Mr. J. W. Sexsmith,
reeve of Richmond, is taking an active
interest in the enterprise, and is one of
the leading promoters. A large number
of Vancouverites are interested in the
scheme, and have agreed to purchase a
majority of the stock shares. Several
wealthy North Arm and Lulu Island
farmers are also taking stock in.the concern, and it may be said that the electric tramway will be under construction
before the autumn.* The estimated cost
of the tramway is $150,000, and the extreme length of tlie road will be 12
miles, Mr, Sexsmith and several of the
most prominent promoters of the scheme
will go to Victoria early next week and
endeavor to have the charter passed
through the House before the present
session closes. In connnection with the
above enterprise a tramway from Westminster to the North Arm is alsoBpokon
of, but Westminster capital will be required if the road is to be built. Willi
tne completion of the proposed road to
Vancouver the North Arm and Lnln Island trade will naturally pass over to
the terminal city, unless at the same
time equal facilities are olt'ered the farmers to reach the Royal City. An electric tramway from this city running
down the centre of Lulu Island will give
Westminster tho control of this trade,
and immediate steps should be taken to
guard our interests in this direction.
The line to Vancouver proposes to carry
freight as well as passengers, and to
make the entire run of 12 miles in about
an hour. With such facilities as these
it is easy to see where the channel trade
would naturally incline to unless equal
inducements towards the mora natural
market, Westminster, nro offered.
• PRRSBYTERY OF COLUMBIA.
The Ordinary   f.|iriiig   Meeting   Opened
With  a Full Atlemliiiiue of Ito-
j.rvH.-ntiiliv.'H.

Hew E. D. McLaren reported that he
had moderated in a call in the First
church, Vancouver, it was iu favor of
Rev. T, C. Jack, of Maitlaud, N.S., and
parties supporting this call, as well as
those in opposition, were heard nt
length. On account of the want of unanimity the Presbytery declined to sustain the call.
Rev. Mr. Macleod reported that he
had held a meeting in St. Andrew's
church, Nanaimo, for the purpose of
electing a pastor for that congregation.
The names of two ministers wero presented to the meeting ns candidates for
the vacancy, and on a vote being taken
it resulted iu a tie, necessitating the
abandonment of the proceedings. Each
candidate received 25 votes at the meeting referred to, and In view of this deadlock the congregation will bo forced to
look in some other direction for a pastor. Rev. Alex. Fraser of Comox, and
Rev. John Chisholm of Kamloops were
the two gentlemen upon whose claims
tho congregation wero divided.
Rev. Thomas Scouler was, on iiiotlun,
apiHilnted Presbytery treasurer, vice
Itev. R. Jamiesou, resigned.
