The Women  Won.
New York, April 2.—The Htrahl'i
special from Concord, N. II., says: The
most exciting election ever witnessed in
this city took placo to-day. The issue
was simply a choice of 8 members of the
Board of Education, but the interest
was profound. The women of the city
had resolved to get representation on
the board and to that end waged a campaign worthy of the most skilful politician. They had eleven rallying places
ipened, and any number of hacks and
carriages running to bring their sisters
to the poll), and the throng was about
evenly divided as to sex. The result
waa declared to the waiting crowd of
fully 1600. The woman's ticket, headed
by Mrs. Mary H. Woodworth, was triumphant by a majority of about 1000 in
the total of 1000 votes.
Rather SUrtllnr.
Saw York, April 2.—A Dubuque,
Iowa, despach to the IforM says': When
six men boarded a train near Mount
Can-all, Ills., to-day and with drawn revolvers cried, "Throw up your hands,"
the passengers were badly frightened
thinking they were train robbers. Thoy
were relieved, however, when the men
produced handcuffs and placed two of
the passengeis under arrest. The prisoners were the notorious Bennett brothers who are accused of safe blowing.
An Island Disappearing.
Nbw Yobk, April 2.—It is reported
that Bedloos Inland is slowly sinking
into tho waters of New York bay. A
suspicion that such was tho case has existed in the minds of those conversant
with the locality for the past year. An
examination by few practical engineers
during the past few days confirms this
belief. There is no doubt, it iB said,
that the statue of liberty is eight feet
lower than when erected.

Nkw York, April 2.—The Herald's
Ottawa correspondent says tlie Behring
Sea negotiations have not advanced
beyond a tacit understanding that
Behring Sea is part of tlie high seas.
The Russian and American Governments are disposed to make the regulations highly restrictive in order to en*
hance the value of their rookeries. The
Canadians appreciate the fact that the
American islands are controlled by a
monopoly, but hope for an early settlement. The/ yet believe the coming
season promises well for poachers.
A Fatal gmaah-Uit.
Delta, Col., April 2.—This morning
at 4.30 as the regular freight train from
the south was nearing this point, a
coupling broke between the engine and
cars. The train was brought to a standstill to replace the broken coupling when
two light engines which were following
crashed into the caboose with terrific
force, shoving it through a coach and
instantly killing Conductor 1). G. Gale.
The wreck then took Are, burning Gale's
body to a crisp.
Annual Report.
Boston, April 2.—The annual report of

Mine Accident.
Wilkkhuabre, Pa., April 2.—An explosion of gas occurred this morning In
the shaft No. 4 at Lanticoke. At noon
■even men had been brought out seriously burned and one dead. There are
4 other men still in the shaft and it is
believed they have been suffocated.
Bate Ball Meeting.
New Yobk, April 2.—A special meeting of the players of the baseball league
is being held at Fifth Avenue Hotel to
day. The object of tbe conference is to
discuss the outlook for the coming season and provide for the success ol the
Brotherhood movement. An important
question before the league is the proposition to change the schedule men who
have put their money in the scheme
and wait to tix the dates in the schedule
so as not to clash with the mimes of the
National League. The question of reinstating Beckley, of Pittsburg, and Del-
hanty and Mulony.of Philadelphia, who
went back to the National League ufter
signing with tlie Brotherhood, will come
before the meeting, und as there seems
to be no opposition they will probably
be received with open arms.
A Phllanthropiit Dead.
Boston, Mass., April 2.-G. W. Co-

OTTAWA NOTES.
Death   of   Hon.   W.   G.    Perley.—HU
Sneeenor In the Field.
(From Our Own Corrcfipoiident.)
Ottawa, April 1.—Mr. W. G. Perley
member for the City of Ottawa, died at
3:30 this morning. The trouble was
blood poison. Dr. Logan says: "The
trouble was gangrene, which started in
the heel." Mr. Perley was first elected
to parliament iu 1687.
Mr, C. H. Mackintosh, ex-M. P.. editor of the Ottawa Citizen and President
of the Citizen Printing and Publishing
Co., is to be the nominee of tlie Conservative party, and is sure to be elected.
It is not likely that the Reformer*, will
Klace a candidate in the field, and Mr-
[ackintosh will be elected by acclamation.
Ottawa, April 2.—When the House
adjourns to-morrow it will stand adjourned until Tuesday next.
Mr. Jones, of Halifax, Ib continuing
the debate on tlw budget. He proclaims
almost entire opposition to the speech
of the Minister of Finance.
Tlie lato Mr. Perley, M.P., will be
buried at 3 p.m. to-morrow. A large
number of senators and members will
attend. .
FORT LANGLEY ITEMS.
fProm Our Own Correspondent.!
Great inconvenience is caused at this
river port owing to the irregular and
scant appearance of the steamers at our
wharf during the last week. The Gladys
came togrief some time ago, and has
been out of the running, nnd the only
other vessel, tho Adelaide, comes down
stream so full of freight that she cannot
take the produce in waiting for her.
We had expected the Delaware would
have put in an appearance before this,
but have been disappointed. At thia
busy season of the year it is of the
utmost importance to the farmers to be
able to ship their produce without delay
or loss of time, ana if the present companies are careless to take advantage of
their opportunities, a company which
will supply the public demand on the
Fraser will meet with every encouragement in their enterprise.
There are numerous visitors to this
municipality in search of land, and the
older proprietors, who are willing to
dispose of their holdings, are being looked up by desirable purchasers. Mr. W.
Jameson has recently sold his ranch to
Messrs. Leaf & Trigg, of Victoria, who
put up at the Langley Hotel, and at
both hostleries—the Commercial and
the Langley—sundry incomers have
established their quarters in pursuance
of their search after land, and to secure
business orders.
The Rev. Thomas Scouler, Presby-
torian minister of your City, is announced to give the last lecture of the course
carried on during the winter months, in
connection with the Presbyterian body,
ou Tuesday at Langley Prairie, and on
Wednesday at Haney. The subject
chosen for the occasion Ib "Luther and
the Reformation," which, no doubt, the
reverend gentleman will make both
interesting and instructive to his hearers.
We regret to report that the quiet of
our locality and the sanctity of the Sabbath waB disturbed on Sunday by a
party from your Citv. They came here
in a small tug boat, and indulged themselves in proceedings of a kind which
will not be again tolerated. Their
names and occupations are known, aud
this notice of their reprehensible and
ruffianly conduct it is hoped will prevent a repetition of bo disgraceful an
escapade. Indeed, it is resolved to put
a stop to the vagaries of such unwelcome visitors, and if they attempt again
to annoy the law-abiding inhabitants in
this municipality, they shall not only
be exposed by giving their names and
occupations, but will certainly be prosecuted to the utmost rigour of the law,
for their unwarrantable and unseemly
behavior.

Behi.iv. April 2.—The emperor has
been very uneasy for the past three
days about the deep popular feeling
over Bismarck and something approach-
a "scene," is said to have taken place
between liim and Chancellor Caprivi.
He chafes under the popular imputation
that ho is a boy, and is said to have
urged a policy that the nation would
call strong. To this Caprivi demurred
nnd the Emperor is said to have cried
out, "as well then have Bismarck back"
Caprivi took his leavo dutifully, but the
idea however unfounded is abroad that
the iron chancellor is to be recalled, nnd
this gives added-est to'the Bismarck
demonstration.

for 150,000 damages for breach of
promise of marriage. She alleges that,
owing to Loutit's promise, she sold out

Joseph Kreusch, head of the order in

said to-day that he aud hia class had

settlement still continues to show marked signs of advancement. Many larger
add well fenced clearings are now visible to travellers along our main
roads. Better buildings are also taking
the place ot the cabins put up upon first
settlement upon the land. New settlers still continue to arrive, notwithstanding the many difficulties to be met
with in a new place.
The people are beginning to see that a
united effort and a more thorough organization are necessary to their mutual
success as a community, and, with that
end in view, held a meeting in the school
house, on the evening of 21st, to consider what step to take in regard to establishing a cemetery in a suitable location
in the settlement; also to consider what
could be done toward forming a municipality. ThiB it was found would entail considerable trouble and time, as
part of tho district deemed necessary
now forms part of tho Langley municipality. More this piece (three milos
along the east side of Langley municipality) could be alienated from Langley,
it would be necessary to first obtain the
votes of two-thirds of tlie electors resident in said section, and also two-thirds
of the members of the Council. Following will be found a copy of tlio resolutions passed:
Moved, that a committee of three be
appointed to inquire into, and find
where the most suitable place can be
procured to lay out a cemetery, said
committee to report to a meeting and
that G. Lawrence, W. H. Vaunatta, and
George Le Frurre be appointed as said
committee.   Carried.
Moved, that a delegation be appointed
to wait upon the Langloy council to ascertain theattitudeof tho members of the
Council In regard to parting with a portion of the present limits.
Moved, in amendment, that there be
a memorial presented to tho Langley
Council asking that a certain portion
(three miles all along the east side of
tho present municipality) be set asldo
from the present municipality limits
In order that there may be incorporated
a new municipality to be known as the
Aldergrove Municipality.
On a division, the amendment carried
and that Mr. Goldsmith, Mr. Holt, and
Mr. Lawrence bo appointed to draft out
and present said memorial.
Moved, that a copy of the minutes of
the meeting bo sent to the Westminster
Columbian and the Vancouver World
for publication.
On the ovoning of 7th March, a very
enjoyablo concort and tea meeting took
place in tho school houso, in aid of a

Proceeds amounted to nearly forty
dollars.

London, April 2.—There is strong reason to believe that the English and
German steamship lines will unito soon
in raising passenger rates between here
end the United States. It is difficult to
find out anything definite about tlie conference held a snort time ago between
two German and 'some English lines
running steamers to New York, with a
view of establishing nn agreement for
tlio regulation of ocean traffic, but another mid more general meeting lias lieen
arranged at Antwerp for some timo this
month, which will probably result in
important announcements.
Student. Ounsnlre.
St. 1'K.i.as-UKO, April 2.-—The University of St. Petersburg was closed today and two hundred students refused
admission. The technological college
also closed and three hundred students
were refimcd admission. Tlie action of
the authorities in closing institutions is
due., to tlio discovery of a conspiracy
among students.
Emln's New Position.
Zan-ibab, April 2.—-Einin Bey has

Africa at a salary of  one thousand

witli a large caravan and 200 Soudanese
under the command of German officers
for Victoria Nyanza. Emin's decision
meets witli strong disfavor in Zanzibar.
Newfoundland Fl.herleB.
London, April 1.—In tho House of
Commons this evening Mr. William Redmond nskod tho Government whether
Newfoundland delegates had been invited to London to discuss the fishories
question, and if not, whether the Gov
eminent would cable nn invitation. Sir
James Ferguson said that the Prouder
had invited them, and they would doubtless come ns soon as their duties permitted, therefore it was unnecessary to
cable to them. Dr. Tanner asked whether consent of Newfoundland had been obtained to tlio arrangement between England and France beforo tho beginning of
the fishing seaBon. Sir Jamea Ferguson
said that the modus Vivendi had not been
received in Newfoundland when the Government last heard from there, officially.
The lust question, lie said, might bo left
for the Newfoundland Legislature to
decide.    '.	
Ual.ou.-'. Battering Bam..
London, April-1;—It is expected that
tho Parliamentary election, which is to
bo hold in Windsor to-morrow, will be
one of the liveliest contests of late years.
Both parties are working hard, the Conservatives to maintain their majority of
about 250 and the Liberals to overcome
it by tlie popularity of thoir candidate,
nnd tlie accessions to their ranks through
tho increase of the total vote in tlie district since tho lust election. The Liberals
have organized an immense parade, one
of the features of which will be one ot
Mr. Balfour's battering-, anis used by the
Government'sovictors invariouBpartBOf
Ireland to heat down the walls and doors
of lioiisos.wlioao inmates reftiBed admission to the ballli's and police. The Conservatives have declared that they will
capture this engine of destruction.
Should thoy adhere to tliolr resolve, au
exciting Becne will ensue, from which
may result many broken heads. The
members of the rocently victorious Oxford crew nre giving every possible assistance to tlio Liberals in tho contest, tho
Giadstonian candidate, Mr. Grenfell, being an Oxford graduate und having
couched the crew to victory. Seldom
lias there occurred a contest into which
both sides have entered with such perfect confidence of success.
0. Items in detail as brought to account at tlie treasury under the head of
re-iinbur_einents in aid during the fiscal
year ended 30th June, 1680, also for the
half year ended 31st December, 1889.
Your committee beg leave to report
thut in regard to the assessment reduced
to the Canadian Pacific Railway Coin-
Sun v it is provided hy the Revenue Act,
onsolidated Statutes, 1888, chap. 102,
sec. 47, that in case a remission of taxes
is made by the executive government
"a detailed statement of such remission
shall be annually submitted to the Legislative Assembly within the first fifteen
days of each ensuing session thereof."
This statutory requirement was not complied with by the Government, as the
Legislative Assembly met on the 22nd
of January of this year, and a detailed
stutement of such remission was not
submitted to the Assembly by the Government until the fifth day of this
month, being forty-two days, inclusive,
in which the Legislature was in session
beforo such statement was submitted.
Your committee are of opinion that tho
requirements of a statute should be observed. In this case it was no doubt an
oversight.
That the late superintendent of police,
H. B. Roycraft, waB, in addition to holding that ofllce, a stipendiary magistrate
and collector of revenue; that as such,
in addition to the revenue which caine
into his bauds, the treasury department
made cash advances to him, often ot
considerable sums. That the security
held by the Government was a bond for
one thousand dollars of the Guarantee
Company of North America, which was.

of 1872 by Mr. Roycraft, the Government paying annually the premium of
That on the Kith July, 1889, Mr. Roycraft obtained a cash advance of one
hundred dollars from the treasury and
left the Province.
That an examination of the books and
papers left by that official showed that
lie had collected eighty-six dollars in
June, 1889, which he had not paid into
the treasury, and a further sum of one
thousand five hundred and sixty dollars
in July, which sum also he had not paid
in.
That after hiB departure in July the
amount of sixty-five dollars was paid
into the treasury for licenses issued by
him, but for which the cash had not
been paid, and for money found in his
safe.
That the Guarantee Company of
North America paid the one thousand
dollars bond into the treasury, and the
Subtle, as far aa we know, are six bun-
red and oiglitv-two dollars and sixty-
five contfl out by Mr, Roycraft's defalcations.
That he was supposed to pay his collections of revenue once a month into
tho treasury, but did not always do so
promptly.
That although he is known to have
held (80 of the June collections in his
hands, on the 30th June, 1889, the public accounts and balance sheet of the
Province at that date as printed and
placed before the Legislature do not
show that any sum or any amount as
having been in his hands.
Your committee further find that a
very iarge proportion of the revenue is
paid by the public into the Lands and
Works Department In addition to large
sums paid out of the treasury to that
department as cash advances. An audit
oil lie books of the Uinds and Works
Department lias not taken place for
years.
Similar advances of similar magnitude
are made by the treasury to the Attorney-General, the Provincial Secretary
and other officers.
Your committee are informed that
the Lunds and Works Department pay
revenue into tho treasury once every
week and sometimes more frequoutly.
Your committe find by examination
of the method in vogue that a much
more complete system of supervision
over collectors of revenue and more frequent nnd regular payment of their
collections into the treasury, and a full
and practical audit of the books and
accounts of every official entrusted with
the collection and payment of public
money is highly essential, both in the
interest of the public and the officials,
and they are informed by the minister
of finance that the Government intend
taking tho question up.
Yourcommitteo have further to report that they have examined into the
collection of timber licenses and royalties, and, while fully recognising the
difficulties surrounding tho introduction
of a system ot tho kind, are of opinion
that the publication of an annual return
showing the amounts paid by each contributor, tlie rebate made and such
other particulars as are essential to a
complete knowledge of the working nnd
compliance with the law would be beneficial.

CORRESPONDENCE.
THE OLD HOSPITAL.
Kim'oit Columbian.—Sir,—1 see in
to-days isstto of Tub Columbian the report of tho medical experts re the old
Columbian Hospital. They say the
front part of the building is practieaUu
safe—what do they mean by that? I
tako it that they think thero is not much
chance of convoying disease—but then
thl report goos ou to say: "We urge
nnd insist that this portion of the build-
bo plastered and painted throughout."
That is in plain language. They admit
there is danger, but thoy advlso it to be
bottled op for the present. Why object to papering? If their is anything
wrong their duty was to recommend
radical measures, not tinkering.
Paragraph two recommends the burning of sulphur. That certainly Ib doing something, but It is too late to be
effective. By tho way was thore ever
that much dono uftor the lato outbreak
of small pox?
Paragraph three goeB to the root of
tho evil. Why is the distinction drawn
between front and rear? Some money
is expended on tho front—is that the
reuBon of tho distinction?
I am sorry to disagree with men
whose opinions I value highly, but my
duty to myself and others compels me to
speak. I would also suggest that the
medical board givo their reasons for the
opinions given, and that any other evidence that can bo collected be all laid
boforo a recognized sanitary authority,
sav of Now York or Montreal. I will
contribute $25 towards expenses so Incurred. Yours Truly.

THE DAILY COLUMBIAN
WEDNESDAY EVENING. APRIL 2, I
WANTED AT ONCE.
Among the various important matters
engaging the attention of the Council at
present none are so urgently pressing us
the question of providing better, and
free, means of communication between
this City and the numerous rich and
thriving farming settlements south of
the river, and, immediately that Is done,
the furnishing of an ample, convenient,
and properly regulated public market,
where tlie farmers can dispose of their
product, at fair prices aud without the
vexatious loss of time which the present state of things necessitates. Every
day that things continue as they are in
respect of these two matters—communication with the south side of the river,
and a public market—Westminster
losing ground and sustaining accumulated damage to her trade and prestige.
Too long, much too long already, has
the City lain under the reproach which
the want of these urgently needed facilities has entailed; and, now that the
Council has the question of providing a
proper river crossing practically in its
own hands, this Important matter, at
least, should be attended to and the
necessary means of communication provided this very season. To accomplish
this, speedy decision and prompt action
will be required by the City authorities,
In arriving at a decision on the question
as to whether a ferry or bridge should
be undertaken, as well as in all discussion of the subject, the item of time is
one which should have great weight,
it cannot be reasonably demonstrated,
for instance, that a bridge could be constructed and in running order in less
than eighteen months or two years, it
must be obvious that a ferry would have
to be put on in the meantime anyway,
us the City's interests will not allow of
the present apology for a ferry service
being run longer than can absolutely be
helped. Those who are convinced that
the City should build a bridge instead
of a ferry at this time, will do a great
service by showing as nearly as possible
what such a structure would cost and
within what time it could reasonably he
completed. There can be very little
doubt that a traffic bridge will ultimately be built across the Eraser at this
City, but the question is, Can the work,
under all tho circumstances, be undertaken immediately, and completed within Bitch a limit of time that a good ferry
will not be required in the meantime,
without the City's interest suffering materially by the transaction. We are
afraid not, although open to conviction
on this point.
named writers who have a personal
" reputation of their own for wit, or
consistency, or severity, to keep up."
Great journals, it appears, as well as
great men, have an individuality to keep
up and character to maintain. No one,
probably, understands the relation of
journals and journalists better than
Joseph Cowan, who is both publisher
and editor. He maintains that journalism is as much a trade as a profession. "It ia not always easy," he says,
" to harmonize the aims of a tradesman
" with the Ideas of a literary man.
" Writers, if they signed their articles,
" would require them to appear as
" written. If they were revised they
"would decline to sign them. But
" many of the best written leaders re-
11 quire the most revision. If not re-
" vised they would involve the publish.
" era in trouble, perhaps in ruin."
Mrs. Lynn Linton takes substantially
the same view. She thinks ''the ndvisa-
" bility of signed articles depends en-
" tirely on the subject and the name—
" also on the manner in which the paper
" is conducted. If, for instance," she
says, " a paper represents the opinion
" of many influential minds, and a line
" is taken after careful deliberation and
" discussion, the hand that writes the
" words is of no more individual value
" than a copying machine. It is the
" TVmet, the organ of a grave and im-
" important section of thought, or the
" Standard or the Daily News—What
" you will; It is the concrete expression
" of many that is given, not the opinion
" of Smith, junior, or the eldor JoneB.
" The editorial 'we' has then ite real
" value. It is not a fictitious assump-
V tion. It is the 'we' of the editor, the
"proprietor, the minister perhaps;at
"all events it is the sign of a unified
" multitude, and its force is both great
" and legitimate."
There are other opinions placed on
record by Mr. Hopkins, which are, perhaps, of equal interest and importance,
shedding light upon the art and business of the journalist, and the best
means of increasing the power and
efficiency of the press. The conclusion
to which they all seem to point Is that,
though anonymous journalism affords
Icbs opportunity for the journalist to
project himself upon the community,
and iB therefore less favorable to his
making the journalistic profession a
stepping stone, it is, on tlie whole, most
favorable to the power and efficiency of
the press. —^^^^^^^^^
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
THE EDITORIAL "WE.'
Anonymity in journalism, observes au
eastern cotemporary, is the subject of
two interesting articles which appeared
in recent > numbers of the New Review
over the signature of Tighe Hopkins.
Mr. Hopkins is himself an advocate of
personal, rather than impersonal journalism. He is in favor of the abolition of
the editorial "we" and the substitution
of the signed leading article. He iB,
however, discussing the subject in such
a judicial spirit that those who hold the
opposite view will have little, most likely, to add when his articles are concluded. In order that hia readers may have
an opportunity of hearing all sides he
has gathered up the opinions of large
numbers of public men—journalists and
others—which are given with his own
comments. Some of these opinions and
the reasons for them briefly stated are
quoted below.
Mr. John Morley thinks that "the
" childish imposture of the editorial 'we'
" is already thoroughly exploded," and
that we are probably not far from the
time when the practice of signature will
make Its way in the newspaper, us it has
already done in the new reviews. Mr,
Gladstone is as radical iu this as most
other matters. "My opinion," he says,
" Ib decidedly favorable to making
"known'the authorship of articles.
This opinion, however, refers to the
higher forms of periodical literature, for
he adds that "Lord Brougham was In
" favor of extending this rulo even to
" the newspapers." This point, however, he confesses to be difficult, while
affirming that "there Is much to be said
"in favor of this view." Mr. William
Black says: "I am distinctly in favor
" of having all articles in newspapers,
" reviews and magazines signed bo that
"the public may know who It is whose
" opinions they are asked to accept.'1
He, too, bus a spiteful word to Bay
against the "mysterious 'we,' " which he
brands as au anachronism aud an imposition, and accuses it of "depriving able
" writers—especially in politics—of the
" credit aud position which is their
" due."
So far the trend of opinion appears to
be decidedly in favor of the substitution
of the French for the English style of
journalism. There Ib, however, another
aide to the subject, and on this Bide
there are some highly respectable names.
Justin McCarthy says, "I am of opinion
" that for daily newspapers, political
" argument in the leading articles ii
" better—I mean more effectually—
" conducted by means of unsigned ar-
" tides." Mr. Andrew Lang is of the
same opinion. "I fancy," he says,
v that political articles, in England at
" least, carry more weight when unsigned." Mr. It. H. Hutton takes the
tame Bide, "I think," he says, "it Ib
*' far easier to co-operate heartily, for a
" journal has to keep up ita journalistic
" individuality, if the articles are unsigned. And if tho managers of a
" journal make 'candor' one of its char-
" acteristic qualities, as many journals
" now do, I think that that journalistic
" character will produce a much greater
" effect on anonymous than it could on
peculiar tenet of their belief is found in
the following wordB of St. James: " Ib
any sick among you? Let him call the
elders of the church and let them pray
over him, and anoint him with oil in the
name of the Lord, and the prayer of
faith shall save the sick and the Lord
shall raise him up." They argue that
the text proves the Heedlessness of medical aid, and when a member of the sect
falls sick they leave nature to work a
cure. Several parents have been to the
Essex Assizes on charges of manslaughter, but only one has been convicted,
the difficulty being that medical men
have been unable or naturally disinclined to say positively that if called in
they could have advised measures which
would have saved life.
Ben Butler has got bo old, notes an
exchange, that he has to be helped
about by a servant, and hia Bight Ib bo
poor that he cannot see print three
inches away, but when someone declares
that he dosen't look a day over 60 and
that he may yet be President of the
United States, the old man looks pleased
as a girl with her first beau.
Something over a year ago a citizen
of Seattle, holding close personal relationship with au Eastern railroad man
asked the latter's opinion concerning
the railroad situation of the North Pacific Coast.   The railroad man replied:
Hold fast your interest to Seattle, for
it is very evident that all the railroads
are heading towards that city." The
railroad man evidently knew what lie
was abont—Post-Inteltigencer*
Duke George of Mecklenburg-Schwerin
hus recently married at St. Petersburg
a Miss Natalie Vaularskaja. The Emperor and Empress were present at the
wedding, and at the breakfast which
followed his majesty conferred the title
of Countess Karlow on the bride. The
latter waa until recently the lady-in-
waiting of Duke George's mother, the
Grand Duchess Catharine of Busata, and
has therefore become the daughter-in-
law of her former mistress. It is hardly
necessary to add that the marriage in
question iB a morganatic union.—Ex.
Some men find considerable difficulty
in finding security for good behavior
when they break the law, but a man in
Hamilton solved his difficulty in this
respect very ingeniously the other day.
He was brought before the police magistrate on a charge of assault preferred by
hia wife, and required to give two sureties that he would keep the peace for a
year. He immediately offered himself
for one and his wife for the other. The
magistrate smiled, as well he might,
but accepted the security and the couple
departed arm in arm. Although this
appears very absurd, it was really the
best security that could have been given,
Ex.
A new device has latterly been adopted
for cheating the custom house out of
the 30 per cent, duty on paintings imported from Europe. The American
purchaser of a foreign picture of value
sends it to a painter in Paris—one generally who is under some pecuniary obligation to him, and cannot refuse the
service—and haa him cover it with
"sine." He then has him paint upon
thiB new sized surface a more or less indifferent picture. This Is then brought
In at a very low valuation as a copy. It
ia almost Impossible to detect a picture
"done up" in this way. There Ib nothing about it to attract suspicion. If
the custom-house authorities undertook
to apply tests and should ruin some
honest picture by mistake it might be a
very serious matter for them.
A bill 1b before the Legislature of
Wyoming to tax unmarried men resident
in the territory $2.50 a year.and islfkely
to become law. Promoters of the bill
allege that bachelors are not a desirable
element In the population after they
reach a certain age. They admit, however, that the local supply of eligible
young women is not sufficient, but they
expect that, after the passage of the bill,
there will be an influx. As It Is, they
have hard work, they say, to obtain
enough lady school teachers, as these
teachers get married as fait m they get
situations. Wyoming should be a very
attractive place for women, for In addition to these advantages the women
there enjoy the suffrage and may vote
for, aud be elected to, any office in the
territory. So gallant a country should
not be long without a full quota of the
fair sex.
Information has recently been received
that An epidemic has broken .out among
the sect known as the Peculiar People In
London, England. The members of this
sect will not call a physician when they
fall ill, and the consequence 1b that when
a contagious disease makes its appearance the patients have to be isolated by
the authorities. The net was started
some fifty yeara ago by an Ignorant man
residing in Essex, and is now said to
number from 1,600 to 2,000 people.   Th*
The English papers that have lately
come to hand, observes an exchange,
contain the reports of the debate in the
British Parliament on the motion of*Dr.
Clark in favor of Scottish home rule.
Mr. Gladstone, somewhat to the surprise
of his followers, opposed it, nnd its fate
was Healed. His address on that occasion waB a masterpiece of political ingenuity, for, after extolling the home
rule principle nnd descanting upon the
grievances of the Scotch, he concluded:
" But in my opiniou our duty is plain.
It is to maintain an attitude of reserve."
It was, therefore, "reserve" which
killed the motion. But the occasion
has been seized upon by the London
Times to rend a severe lesson to the people of the northern kingdom, and that
journal Bays: "There are plenty of
parochially limited Intelligences In England, but they are free from the Itching
jealousy that sours and warps Scotch
provincialism. The English provincial
has no national animosities. He may
or may not have a prejudice against
Scotchmen as individuals, but his political action Ib never affected in the
smallest degree by jealousy of the Scotch
as a nation. They are simply nothing
to him. But the Scotch parochial intelligence is animated with an intense and
absolutely ludicrous jealousy of England,
and afflicted with an irritable self-
assert iveness quite unknown on thiB Bide
the border." It Ib quite evident that
since royal princesses took to marrying
Scotsmen they have become objects of
suspicion in some English circles of
opinion.   Hence these tears.

"We shall be chauged-we shall be changed-
we shall be changed."  Bez I:
"II you perpose all day au'night Jest them same

W'yl should think a change would be a very
proper thing."
The tenor sang "We shall be changed;" an*
then struck In the base,
Who sang "We shall, wo shall be changed,"
from tbe bottom of bis face.
The alto aud soprano then both tried their vocal

An' both emphatically expressed the certainty
of "change,"
The absence of ldees wuz drowned In plente-

What strict economy of words an' extravagance

For they were stingy of their words and generous of tholr strains,
Ah1 tbey were .spendthrifts of their lungs an1

Ah* they call this mighty muslo; 'taint fer mo

BATTLING WITH A BEAR.
All Intrepid Hunter's Oonfllot with
a Giant Grizzly.
The carcass of a huge grizzly bear
was brought into town a few days ago
by Henry Robertson, who had killed tho
animal the day previous In one of the
gorges of the Plnaleno mountains, lying
to the northeast of this place. The
body weighed over twelve hundred
pounds, measuring five feet five inches
in height, while its claws are fully
four inches long and ourved almost into
fish-hooks. Robertson himself was in
need of medical attention, for his legs
and shoulder were badly torn and his
countenance decorated with numberless
scratches, indicating that the grizzly
had considered her life worth fighting
for. The. hunter was accompanied hy
his two dogs, which, while only curs of
mongrel breed, had, their proud owner
declared, undoubtedly saved his life in
the fight with the big bear, conducting
themselves with a courage and intelligence that would have put to the blush
many ot their pedigreed and high-bred
brethren. The dogs, Kip and Tuck,
each exhibited severe wounds on tlio
head and body, and listened with evident comprehension of the story to
their master as he related it to the
crowd gathered round tho dead grizzly,
betraying at any mention of themselves
a pleased and proud excitement, and
corroborating tho narrative at intervals
with many short harks and wagglngs of
their stumpy, yellow tails. Robertson
tells his story as follows:
I was looking for no particular game,
and had started out toward the mountains moro from Idleness than any
thing else, and only from force of habit
had taken my rifle and belt, containing
a revolver, hunting-knlfo and tomahawk. And, speaking of tomahawks,
I'll say right hore that for a fight at
close quarters with man or beast it is
the hondiost weapon that was ever invented by white man or savage. The
Indians, who patented tt, as you might
say, seeing that they had been hobnobbing with them for hundreds of
years while the white man was following his plow's tail, knew moro about
wild animals and fighting than thut
white man, and he has never brought
out any thing to equal the tomahawk in
a hand-to-hand fight, for all his big
blowing.
Well, I was sitting down to rest on
the top of a little ridge after jogging
along an hour or so whon 1 beard tho
dogs that had gone on ahead und gotten
out of sight barking as if they hud gone
mad. I knew they had found something
worth having, so 1 went running down
Into the little dip below the ridge, and
thero I found them tearing round and
round an opening in a heap of rocks
sort of piled up till they made a good-
sized cave, and acting like thoy had
taken leave of their senses. But, excited as they were, it was easy to see
they thought it better to be pretty
cautious, too, for thoy would go rushing up to tho mouth of the cavern and
then come tearing baok in a big hurry,
as it they would almost make up their
minds to tackle whatever It was and
then on second thought give it up. I
could not think what It was, for it never
occurred to me that It might bo a
grizzly bear, for 1 had not seen or heard
of one la those parts tor ten years and
over.
So I stepped over a big log that lay
between me and the hole and looked in,
when I heard a tremendous growl and a
rustling of dry leaves that told me thero
was some large animal down there,
though I still oould not place It. I stuck
my head nearer to tho hole, and such
another growling and gnashing of tooth
was surely never heard. This time I
saw pretty plainly two big eyes glaring
at me out of the darknoss like red-hot
coals. I cooked my rifle, but found tho
log was too close for me to draw a sight
on the animal; so I got on my knees,
and, leaning hack on tho fallen tree,
leveled my gun as well as I could, tho
boar all this time tearing up the ground
And making tho gorge fairly ring with
his furious cries
■ The dogs stopped barking, though
from pure excitement, and stood by me
with their vory hair bristling up like a
porcupine's, and their tails as stiff as a
ramrod. The big shining eyes of the
beast seemed to got closer to tho opening tn the rocks, sol fired, aiming to hit
between tho eyes, but, as I found afterwards, the shot only passed through the
muzzle about an inch below them, and
seemed rather to mako her as mad as
fury than to disable her. Anyhow six
fotobed a yell to make a man's blood
turn cold, and came bouncing throng!-
the smoke, rushing Btraight at me. 1
Jumped to my feet, and having no time
to aim and fire, mado a push at hor wltb
my rifle, but Bhe knocked the gun fifty
feet into the air with one stroke of her
paw, and with another slap knocked me
down as easily as I oould a child tn arms,
tearing my shoulders pretty badly hy
the blow.
1 fell with my baok across the log,
and beforo I could draw a weapon from
my bolt tho boar was upon me, crushing
and nearly suffocating mo with the
weight of her big, hairy body. With
her toropaws sho hugged me round tho
shoulders In u clasp a littlo too loving
to be altogether comfortable, and, pinning my arms to my side, would draw
up her hind feet again and again, trying
to rip mo open it seomod. Hy the luckiest ohanoo in the world I had on ono
ot these oilskin jackots suoh as sailors
woar and a pair of buckskin overalls.
reaching to my knees, whoro my thtok
hoots mot thorn, and it was only my
droBs that saved mo from being torn to
pieces, for tho bear's claws, as often as
nliu tried to rip it, would slip ovor tho
smooth surface of tho oilskin Junket and
spend Its force on my overalls and boots,
which protected my legs to a great ex
tent, though the flesh was badly torn
even through thorn.
All this, though it takes some time to
tell it, happened so quick that all I had
been able to do before the bear grabbed
me was to yell to Nip and Tuok. They
actually seemed to be taken so aback at
first by the sight of me lying on the
ground with the hear on top that they
oould only stand still and look, with
their eyes popping out of their heads;
hut when they did fairly take in the situation they made for that bear with no
more ado than If she had been a pussycat. One took her by the ear and the
other laid hold of her hind leg.
Now, bears have a trick of always
letting go any thing they have their
clutches on for the next thing that
bothers them, and tt was to this way of
theirs that I owe being here to tell tho
tale, for if she had held on to me muoh
longer x would have been suffocated, as
suro as death. But when tho dogs
grabbed her she let go of me and turned
on them, snapping her jaws and snarling like a devil gone mad. Away thoy
went, tumbling over the rocks and
orashlng through the thtok undergrowth as tt It had been dried grass—
the dogs too cute to got In tho face of
tho bear and only worrying her from
bohind whenever they could, and the
bear too big and olumsy to get a good
chance at tbera.
While this scramble was going on I
got on my foot and ran to get my gun.
but I found the muzzlu full of snow anil
the ramrod gone, so I drew my pistol
and rushed back to help the dogs. 1
fired when I thought I could hit tho
bear without hurting the dogB, but us

Just at that moment tho hear mado i.

rolled over a ieago or roou and disappeared,
Though I was still dizzy and sore from
my fall, with tho blood running down
my logs and face, I could not .euve my
faithful friends to fight it out alone, so'
I dropped the blamed pistol, and, drawing my tomahawk, I jumped ovor the
ledge right in the thick of tho sliituh
Tho grizzly now dropped tho dog ami
turned to mo again, but I jumped to oik
sido and caught hor by the nape of the
neok, striking at her forehead. Shi
turned to bite my arm as I brought m.\
arm down and tho weapon glanced,
nearly cutting off one of her ears, which
mado her turn her head to that side,
so giving me a chance to strlko her
again. .1 took good aim that timo and
succeeded in burying the tomahawk in
her brain, so that she fell at my feet
without a struggle or a groan.—St,

HE LOST THE  TRAIL.
A Yankee's Ailvuiituro In the New, Very
New, Mouth.
The prevalent practice of building
oitios ou paper, whoro more substantial
material is wanting, seems to have
I'cuohed its height in a curtain locality
n tho Mouth, which was recently visited
by a Maine man, who i'tSatos, in tlie
Lowiston (Me.) Journal, an amusing incident of 'his trip.
Tho "city" is at a famous vailway
junction, and high expectations aro eil
toi'tained ot its future greatness, especially by tho original "city company." On its map may ho soon iiu.-
niflcont avenues Intersocted by b_M:.
streets, with here and there spaoiot.
parks, boautifrV fountains, etc.
It happened during his stay that the
man from Maine had occasion to go In
search of a person on a dark night.
Itelng unfamiliar with tho "oity," lie
was accompanied by ono of Us origin...
fathers. With a lantern to throw light
on thoir path thoy started. After walking a shoi't dtsuuicn tho guide, with a
view of communicating instruction at-
woll as ngreeub'lo information, stopped
In tho neighborhood of u group of towering pines. Swinging tho lantern slowly
around, he said:
"Hero wo are, stranger, right on Mng-
nolla tivenue— a finostroet, one hundred
feet wide."
Proceeding a little way further, he remarked:
This Is Broad street—an excel -
lent thoroughfare for business purposes
Just beyond is Highland avenue, un
which are fine sites for private rest
donees."
Tho stranger began looking for these
sites, but owtng to the darkness was unable to distinguish them. After stum
bllng on, up and down ravines, ovei
stumps and othor obstacles peculiar to
moro than one Southern metropolis, the
guide again stopped and remarked, with
some hesitation:
This, sir, is—ahl—let me see—I—I
believe, sir—that is to say—cuss itl I've
lost the trail!"	
MOTHERS, SPEAK LOW.
A Sweet Voice Is One of the Most Baotl-
lent Things In a Woman.
I know some houses, well built and
handsomely furnished, where it is not
pleasant to be even a visitor. Sharp,
angry tones resound through them from
morning to night, and the lnfluenee Is
as contagious as measles, and muoh
more to be dreaded in a household. The
children catch it, and it lasts tor life,
an ineurable disease. A friend has
suoh a neighbor within hearing other
house, when doors and windows are
open, and even Poll Parrot has caught
the tune and dolights. in screaming and
scolding, until she has been sent Into
the country to Improve her habits.
Children catch cross tones quicker than
parrots. When mother sets the example, you will scarcely hear a pleasant
word among the children In their plays
with each other. Yet the discipline of
such a family is always weak and Irregular, The children expect so much
scolding before they do any thing they
are bid; while In many a home, where
the low, firm tono of tho mother, or a
decided look ot her steady eye, li law,
they never think of disobedience, either
in or out othor eight
Oh, mothers, it Is worth a groat deal
to cultivate that "excellent thing In a
woman," a low, sweet volco. It you are
ovor so muoh tired by the mischievous
or wilful pranks of tho little ones, speak
low. It will bo a great help to you to
oven try to be patient and cheerful, it
you oan not wholly succeed. Anger
makes you wretched, and your children
also. Impatient, angry lanes never did
the heart good, but plenty of evil You
can not have the excuse for them that
tbey lighten your burdens; they only
make them ten times heavier. For your
own Bake, as well as your children's
sake, learn to speak low. They will
remember that tone when your head ii
under the willows. So, too, would they
remember a harsh and angry voice.

children?—Kindergarten Magazine.

When the fire alarm sounded this
afternoon, the corporation horses did
not happen to be in the Are hall, but
were oinployed elsewhere on the streets,

strongly to the front, Can tbe city not

A Rapid Sketch of the New Mill. Its
Construction and Machinery, and Capacity when Finished.
The Brunette Saw Mill Company, of
New Westminster, are preparing to take
their proper position among the leading
lumbering firms of the Pacific Coast.
This firm lias among its members some
of the pioneer lumbermen of British Co*
lumbia, and they are an example of
what pluck and energy, combined with
business ability, will accomplish. From
a very humble beginning thoir business
has expanded to such proportions that
they found their old mill entirely inadequate to supply the demand. For this
reason, late in the Beason of 1889, they
decided to build a new mill, of the latest
design, with all modern improvements.
At tho start they were peculiarly fortunate in securing the services of Mr.
John C. Wilson for manager and auper-
intendeut of the building of the new
mill. This gentleman has had an extended experience in all kinds of mill
building and was lately employed as
foreman of the new McLaren-Rosa Mills.
He iB thoroughly master of his trade,
and has few equals at this branch of the
business. His foreman, Mr. John Mc-
Bain, is also an excellent workman and
the result of their joint labor will be
sufficient recommendation to secure
them employment wherever their services may be required. It has been
their intention to make this mill as near
perfect in all its parts as mechanical
skill and careful supervision could accomplish.
The foundation is laid on piles cut low
to the surface of the ground to insure solidity. The caps, fifteen inches square,
are closely fitted and perfectly leveled to
receive tHe sills of the same sized timber. These consist of four rows each,
250 feet long—the length of tbe mill
without the platform. The posts are 14
feet long, 15 inches square, aud are set
thirteen feet apart. On these tbe steak
sills are laid, and across them the beams
are carried. The latter are 68 feet long,
that being the width of the mill. This
gives a clear space of sixteen feet between the floors and leaves ample space

Factory Men on Strike.
The factory men employed by the
Royal City Planing Mills Co. went on
strike this morning, and as a consc-
auence the factory was shut down to-
ay. The cause of the strike is given
as follows: The men, In view of the fact
that the carpenters throughout the city
are working only 0 hours a day, concluded to ask for a three hours rebate of
work on Saturday afternoons. The men
made thiB request through their foreman, and the answer was given that in
somo cases the rebate would be allowed,
but In others the lost time would be deducted from their wuges. The men,
considering'that they were willing to
work 10 hours dally, reasonably thought
that the three hours rebate on Saturdays
was not a very exhorhitantdemand, and
decided that every hand in tlie factory
should be treated alike or thev would go
out on strike. The demand was not
granted and the strike followed this
morning. The men seem to he determined to hold out until their request Is
granted or to find employment elsewhere.
No other branch of the mills is affected by the strike, and with the exception
of the factory every department was
running as usual to-day.

Whiskey Traders.
It is learned from a gentleman who
has just returned from a trip to the
northern coast that the whiskey traffic
with the Indians is very largely on the
increase and that serious trouble will
shortly result unless vigorous iteps are
taken to stamp it out and punish the
offenders. A dozen or more sloops,
manned by white men, are engaged in
the traffic, and they visit every Indian
village and rancherie on both Island and
Mainland and supply the Siwashes with
all the whiskey 'they can pay for.
Cape Mudge rancherie, so our
informant says, has been transformed
into a perfect hell, tbe Indians being
always supplied with liquor and half of
them are in a constant state of intoxication. Fights and quarrels are an hourly
occurence, and the whole village is in a
perpetual state of uproar. If something
is not done immediately to put an end
to the iliclt traffic, murder will result;
already several quarrels have only narrowly escaped being fatal. The whiskey
is said to be brought from Comox ana
Nanaimo, while not a few Victoria sloops
aro engaged in the traffic. The Government has appointed three justices of the
peace for this section of the coast, but
to carry all shafts and gears high enough
to secure the safety of the workmen.
The upper storey is built of timber of
slightly smaller dimensions, the posts
being 12 inches square and 13 feet nigh.
The plates are of the same dimensions.
The beams ...e 12 by 16 inches, 58 feet
feet long, and are supported at both ends
by well fitted knees, as an additional
support. The roof is built in the shape
of a truss; the principal rafters, size 10
by 12 inches, are fitted into the end of
each beam and are braced to the centre
of them. Through these three large
iion truss rods are bolted: these add
greatly to the strength while enhancing
the symmetry of the building.
The south end of the mill is left
open on each side for a distance of 05
feet to give an outlet for the manufactured lumber. These openings are supported by two finely built trusses, and
appear to be able to stand as great a
strain as any part of the framework. At
the extreme south end a platform will
extend 70 feet into the river to enable
sea going ships to load dimension timber direct from the mill. The whole
space of tho upper floor wilt be devoted
entirely to the saw mill machinery,
which will consist of one latest improved
Wicks' gang, one band saw, and one
double circular saw. These will have a
united capacity of 125,000 feet per day
of ten hours. The motive power will
consist of two engines and six boilers
with a. capacity of about 300 horse power. The boiler und engine foundations
are of solid masonry, built on piles, the
engine foundations and all their bearings
being entirely separate from the mill.
This insures perfect solidity and steady
motion. The boiler house will be built
of brick, with iron rafters and roofing of
corrugated iron, the same as the mill.
, The greater portion of tho machinery
has been manufactured by the Albion
Iron Works Co., of Victoria, and, as thiB
is the first large order of the kind they
have placed on the mainland, it is expected they will make an extrn effort to
excel thoir competitors. The company
have disposed of the old saw mill machinery and it will soon be removed to
a mill on Howe Bound. The old building will then be utilized as a sash and
door and planing factory. It is expected
that the new mill will be in full operation by the first of June. It is the intention on the company to establish
agencies iu Calgary and other points in
the Northwest ts endeavor to capture a
fair share of the immense trade now
being developed there. With a supply
of timber of the choicest quality practically limitless, a mill second to none,
and a reputation for fair dealing where-
ever they are known, the Brunette Saw
Mill Co. cannot fail to meet with the
success due to their enterprise.
A Delegation.
Mayor Brown and ex-Mayor Town-
send, of New Westminster, arrived last
evening and interviewed the Government to-day in respect to school matters. We understand the residents of
Westminster— or at least the members
of the school board—are not satisfied
with the amount of appropriation for
school purposes, and have commissioned
these gentlemen to secure if possible a
supplemental vote in the estimates yet to
be submitted before the House rises.
New Westminster wants at least four additional teachers, besides increased
school accommodation. Like the other
centres of population—notably like Vancouver ana Victoria—the Increase in the
number of children of school age has
been phenomenally large during the
pastvearor two in the Royal City,
which speaks well for the climate and
healthful surroundings of the sister
city,—Monday's Times.

her voyage out she has proved herself

mention occurred on the trip out, which
was at times uncomfortable,, as was

sealing grounds with all possible dispatch, and will sail under command of
Capt. Steward.—Monday' sTimes.

THREE KLOOCHMEN  DROWNED
In Seymour Narrows While Attempting
To Pass Through at Full Tide
Mr. G. W. De Beck arrived in the city
yesterday from Discovery Passage, V. L,
bringing the news of a drowning accident
that happened in Seymour Narrows
ttlmut eight days ago. The accident wbb
witnessed by three men who were
aboard a sloop anchored In Meniies Bay
at the time. A canoe containing three
Indian women entered the Narrows
while the tide was rushing through at a
terrible rate of speed. The craft passed
safely and swiftly along until clear of
the narrows, and then despite the
strongest efforts of the occupants, it was
carried by the irresistible current direct
towards the breakers, round which the
waters were boiling and tumbling ns If
lashed by a hurricane. The women saw
their peril, and endeavoured to head the
canoe for a small Island that lay between them and the breakers, but the
effort were useless at the tide was set In
an adverse direction, and their united
efforts was not sufficient to make any
noticeable change in the position of the
little vessel. In a few seconds the island
was left behind, and tbe canoe rapidly
approached the breakers. It waa then
noticed that the women gave themselves
un for lost and lay down in the bottom
of the canoe to await their end. The
boat swept on, spinning around like a
top when it encountered un eddy, nnd
presently reached the outer line of tjje
breakers. Once it was seen to rise on a
huge billow aud then disappear, und
that was all.
Two days after this occurrence a party
of Indians visited Mr. De Beek's camp
enquiring if anything had been seen or
heard of three women who had left
their rancherie a couple of days before,
and had not returned. The story ot the
accident In the narrows was fold them
and they returned home fully convinced
that it was the absent Kloochmen who
had been drowned. The bodies have
not been recovered,

The anniversary exercises of the
Young Men's Christian Association
were held in the Methodist church last
night. The president of the Association, Mr. D. S. Curtis, stated that the
object of the meeting was to inform the
fiublic of the work of the Association,
lo Bald he was proud of the honor of
being at the head of such a worthy institution. He then presented the Association work in a very able manner,
occasionally reading extracts from the
Young Men's Christian Association
handbook. Reports were then read by
Mr. A, E. Rand, treasurer, and Mr. C.
A. Davie, general secretary.
In the absence of Mr. J. S. Clute, Sr.,
president of the building committeee,
Mr. W. A. Duncan made the report,
which showed the total subscriptions to
date to be (9,500, with a promise of $500
additional provided the full amount required ($10,000) be pledged before May
1st, which the committee feel confident
of accomplishing.
Mr. G. A. Charnock, General Secretary of the Vancouver Association, in his
usual jovial manner gave a short address
on the subject of finances. He said he
knew of but two ways of raising money
for the association. The first was to get
the young men to give what they could
themselves, and second to ask the business men of the city to give the remainder.
Owing to the lateness of tho hour Mr.
C. C. Fisher made a few remarks in
the place of speaking on the subject of
"Spiritual Results" ub was intended.
The Association orchestra rendered
several selections which added very
muoh to the enjoyment of the occasion.
Northern Newt.
The Louise has arrived at Victoria

ing news: On March 22nd the steamer
Muriel, belonging to R. Cunningham,
was engaged carrying freight from the
Princess Louise to the Aberdeen. While
on one of her trips and in mid-river, e
young Indian boy named Charles Stewart fell over the stern and was not noticed by anyone until the boat was
about a hundred yards away from him
when word was given to reverse the engines. Unfortunately something gave
way and she was unable to back, aud
the boy wub seen to sink to rise no more.
Had the Muriel had a Binall boat on her
no doubt his life would have been saved,
