Hyitarloutly Dliappeared.
New York, April 30.—A despatch was
received in this city yesterday stating
that D. Walker, of Brooklyn, who has
been on a visit ut Weldon, N. C, has
mysteriously disappeared. Ho went
fishing lust Saturday in tlio Roanoke
River, it was said, and failed
to return to his hotel. It was
supposed that he hud been drowned accidentally. Walker is a brother of
Brisben Walker, and was associate
editor of the Cosmopolitan magazine, of
which his brother iB editor. He left
here three weeks ago on a southern trip
for the benefit of his health. He wrote
to his mother, with whom he lived,
last Friday night saying that ho would
probably be home the following Monday.
Since then nothing hus beon hoard of
him by his friends and relatives hero.
Walker was about 30 years old and had
been engaged in literary work for some
timo. Ho wus a magazine writer and
had heen connected with tho Cosmopolitan from the time it was started.
alive were disclosed, all completely
naked, their clothes having been discarded on account of the intolerable
heat.
The compartment is about 30 feet high
and two feet wide, aud extends across
the ship. In this cramped place the
twelve persons, one a man and the
others women, had been stowed for a
week. Japanese women are not allowed
to leavo their own country without
official permission, but the demand for
them for immoral purposes is so great
that frequent attempts are made to
smuggle them on board steamers. That
appears to huve beon the object iu the
present case, the party of ten girls, in
charge of a man and old woman, being
stowed away in the hole described,
where was neither ventilation nor light.
They hud u supply of food und water
with them, so that starvation was not
added to their othor sufferings. The
man wns one of those who succumbed,
but the old woman survived. The bodies
of the dead wore iu a more or less advanced stage of decomposition. Tho
survivors wore in a shocking condition,
their bodies being swollen and covered
with prickly heat. They were taken to
tho hospital where they*are being cared
for.
Dominion   Parliament.
Ottawa, April-80.-4)he modus vivendi
was rushed through the Senate to-day,
Mr. Abbott pleading the urgent necessity to tho Maritime Provinces. Some
Senators objected to the concessions to
American fishermen in view of the de-
lay of the Washington authorities in Bottling tho claims for the seizures of Victoria sealers in Behring's Sea.
The North West Bill passed through
the committee stage in tlie Senate and
will be read the third time on Thursday
when there will be moved an important
amendment granting their Legislature,
after the next general elections, the
same power over the liquor question ub
is possessed by the older provinces.
To Mr. Blake is due the credit of niacin^ himself above party considerations.
His motion iu Parliament to-day was
unanimously adopted and received Sir
John Mucdonnld's endorsation ns follows: "It is expedient to provide
means whereby on solemn occasions
touching the exercise of the powers of
disallowance or of appellate power ub to
educational legislation or important
questions of law, they may be referred
by the executive to a high tribunal, iu
such a mode that the authorities and
the parties interested may be represented aud that a reasoned opinion may be
obtained for tho information of the
executive."

A l'rofeiior tn Trouble.
New York, April SO.—The Herald's
Syracuse special says: Syracuse university has boon placed in a state of
excitement by au editorial in the university Herald, attacking Prof. J. T. D.
Fisher, instructor in modern languages.
The editorial opens iu those words:
"We find it difficult to give suitable expression to our indignation at the disgusting description of the Parisian demimonde recently volunteered before a
mixed class hy the liberal arts instructor." The occasion for thiB onslaught wus
flven on Thursday morning when Prof.
isher described iu rather plain language to the young ladies and gentlemen of tho junior class in French the
behaviour of the frequenters of tho
Parisian boulevards, particularly women.
The editorial has made a grent stir, and
Professor Fisher in his class-room today vigorously resented the charge, saying that be had honestly tried to make
the passage as clear as possible-without
impropriety.  To-dav tlie 200 ladies and
f'entlemen of the Liberal Art collego
icld a meeting u»d unanimously adopted resolution** condemning the paper
and declaring that it did not represent
tho university iu its attack on the professor. The Herald's managing editor
tried to explain, but tho indignant
students would not listen to him. Tho
end is not yet.

nows of a shocking discovery mado at
tlio former port ou the Japanese steamer Fubhidi Mareo, which arrived from
Nagasaki on the 20th ult. For some
days a bad smell hud been noticed iu
the engineer's moss room, which gradually grew worse and was attributed to
dead rats. Aftor a long search it was
traced to the compartment abovo one of
the tanks alongside the engine room.
On the man-hole being opened a rush of
foul air took place, and some naked
bodies were Boon. Tho coal In the main
hold was quickly removed to get nt tho

The Matter »f DUallowauee Wlll Probably be Verted In the Supreme
Court of Canada.
(From Oar Own Correspondent.!
Ottawa, April 29.—Hon. Mr. Bluke,
In the House of Commons this afternoon, after routine proceedings were
over, rose to speak on his proposal to
have the authority of disallowance and
other questions of like importance taken
awny from Parliament, and placed in
charge of n high official tribunal such as
the Supreme Court of .Canada. He
spoke until 4:10 o'clock.
Sir John Macdonald complimented
Mr. Blake on his able speech. He considers that it would not be inadvisable to
allow such an important question as
disallowance to go to a high legal tribunal, so that the result of the Investigation shall give satisfaction to all. He
says he cordially agrees with Mr. Blake's
motion and is glad he brought it up. It
will he fully discussed next session.
Ottawa, April SO.—Tho House is
discussing the report re General
Middleton and the North-west investigation affairs. The Opposition
wants the report in full brought down
immediately. The Minister of Militia
promised to do so. Mr. McMullen asked tbe Government whether they were
aware that Lieut.-General Laurie is to
be permitted to draw some f631|as mileage from England to Canadu,
to attend Parliament this session, aud if the Government consider
that the statute permits a member of
Parliament, after his election, to remove
to somo distant part of the empire und
mileage from that distant locality to Ottawa, each session of Parliament. And
if this was a legal interpretation of the
law did the Government intend to
change the law so us to prevent
an expenditure of this kind
future. Sir John Macdonald
plied that tho Government had not yet
come to a decision regarding this matter; the Houso then went into committee.     ____^____.
Golden  Slat*.
T. F. Sinclair returned from Golden
on Thursday evening, after inspecting
the progress of work on tlie slate quarry
owned by him. ThiB is situated alongside tho railway truck, the pitch of the
slate being such that it cun be quite
readily mined and placed on the cars.
Tho deposit Is almost half a mile in
length, nnd is sufficient to supply alt
demands that may be made on it. Two
colors of slate are found, one a light the
other u dark blue. Experts pronounce
it a vory superior article, equal to the
best found in the east. It is expected
that a large market will be supplied
from the Golden quarries, extending
east ns fnr as Winnipeg aud to all points
on tho coast. Contracts have boon entered into for supplying tho slates for
shingling the Catholic and Methodist
churches, now under course of construction in this city, and othor largo buildings to be erected this year will also
likely be shingled with the excellent
Golden slate. It is expected thnt slate
shingles will be sold at the rate of about
$6.60 per thousand in Victoria, and
though they will cost more than.double
that of sheet iron for roofing, yet their
durability will moro than compensate
for the extra cost of placing thorn in
position. About twenty men will be
employed at the quarry, und, if the demand iB sufficient, one bundled men
can be placed at work on the deposit.—

PORT HANEY BRICKS.
I'KKltY VS. IIIMIIUK.
Editoj. Columbian—(Sic—Although I
have been till the present rather
inclined to scout the idea of a ferry us
ompared with a bridge for the Frnser
River, opposite the city, I must confess
that it wasWing to tho fact that I had
not looked at the mutter in all its phases;
but merely in a superficial way. I was
prepared to sacrifice my own little pile,
put u complete stop to street improvements and tho beautifying of our park,
postpone completion o*f tlie water works,
throw sewerage to tho winds, In fact,
make the wheels of progress stop abort
until mine eyes had Been a bridge—if
only a wooden bridge—spanning the
noble Fraser. But I had not stupidly
determined to refuso to listen to reason
or entertain argument In the matter,
und, consequently, upon looking more
exhaustively into the question and exchanging views with others, whose opinions 1 thought should be worth something, I am forced to the conclusion that
to givo a kingdom for the difference
between a wooden bridge—which means
a temporary structure—and a good ferry
would be very ill-advised. I nm now
thoroughly convinced that experience
proves that cheap bridges are very
treacherous things, nnd even those who
undertake to construct them will not
guarantee them for any length of time
nor for a sum anywhere near their cost.
I find, moreover, upon careful enquiry,
that whero bridges and ferries both
exist and are operated side by side, in
nine cases out of ten the ferry receives
the larger share of the traffic. To summarize, my deductions are these. An
efficient ferry—to run day and night,
summer and winter—can be put on for
one-twentieth of the first coBt of a temporary bridge and can be maintained for
one-half of the sum required to keep up
a bridge., or for considerably Iosb than
the interest on cost of bridge. Now,
when all things are taken into consideration the extreme uncertainty ofacheap
bridge standing for any definite time
after being built, aud the effect on the
financial standing of tho city after the
necessary loan for such an undertaking
hud been mado, it strikes me that every
citizen who takes the time to study the
matter for himself will agree with me
that tho only safe course for ub, with
our already largo debt and I might say
small population, is to adopt tlio cable
ferry In place of what is only at best an
experiment, and which might prove a
very coBlly and cvon disastrous experiment, to our young und ambitious city.
The principal business men of the city,
I find, favor the ferry, aud 1 don't see
how tbey can do otherwise, after looking
at tbe question iu all its bearings.

PORT LANGLEY ITEMS.
f front Our Own ihrresiiomlent.)
Langley, April 28.—We have had
quite a busy week, what with cropping
and fencing and building, the activity of
our agricultural bees is noticeable in all
directions. The potatoes are being
planted iu quantity, aad an extended
area compared with lust year may be
reckoned ou. A fair extent under
cereals will also contribute to the food
yield of next winter. The lambing time
hus boen favorable, and the increase in
the sheep folds will send in a fair supply of muttons and wool to the city markets from this municipality.
One of our respected proprietors, Mr.
James Mavis, has enclosed a portion of
Ids laud with picket aud rail fences for
a distance of more than n mile along the
Frnser and the river prairie, and is effecting many useful improvements on his
estate. Ho has moved to the old bouse
on tho Hudson Buy Company's proporty formerly occupied by their agent,
he having somo time since purchased
thut portion of tbe company's land in
this locality. A very favorably circumstanced ranch which thiB respected gentleman bought on his first settlement
here, ou which he built a line dwelling
huuse and out offices and otherwise
greatly improved, has been sold to his
neighbor Mr. William Rawlison, at a
fair figure, and on the trunk road from
Langley to tho high prairie Mr. Mavis
lias laid out several dosirablo lots for
town purposes.
Mr. John Murray is erecting on his
farm a commodious bam—one of the
largest in the neighborhood. It will be
a fine frame building, 100 foot long by
00 wide, with side lean sheds for housing and rearing stock. Mr. John Lowes
is also making himself Bung from porcine
intruders by erecting a substantial
picket stockade around his premises. A
chnnge of ownership has taken place in
tbe case of the ranch which belonged to
the Rev, AV. Patterson, ex-Methodist
minister in this district—whose holding
was bought by Mr. John Wilson of Ottawa, it ii said for f 1,800.
Several othor transactions In real estate exchanges and investments are being negotiated, and steady progress is
marking out a prosperous future for the
inhabitants of this rapidly advancing
portion of tho Province—situated us it is
with water, and will be with railroad
communications us inlets und outlets for
traffic with adjacent markets.
Tho steamers up and down stream nre
giving much satisfaction.

ficcnt principle, affecting very closely
the welfare of the Province as a whole,
than lor the mere rights of any
particular section—the Sentinel will perceive that, by treating the subject as it
has begun to do, it is, unintentionally,
we believe, but none the leBS truly, casting its influence on the wrong side, and
helping to perpetuate a wrong, an injustice, a corrupt and subversive principle in Provincial politics—undone which
will surely make its force felt, if not now
crushed out, in many constituencies
throughout the Province which at the
present time are not directly affected by
the question. We trust the Sentinel will
wisely reconsider its stand on this important question, and at any rate give
the public tho benefit of answering the
problems we have suggested.
WEDNESDAY EVENING, AFRIT* B0. HBO.
WITHOUT DUE CONSIDERATION,
We regret to notice that our esteemed
cotemporary, the Kamloops Sentinel, does
not do its better self anything like justice in its consideration of the Redistribution Bill passed in the Local House
last week. Perhaps our cotemporary is
not to be altogether blamed for tbo
rather light and superficial way in which
it treuts the subject in its last issue.
The question does not us yet impinge on
its own immediate environment, bo to
speak—redistribution as a vital isBue
hus not " come home," in othor words,
in tho sense of restricting or ignoring tho
rights and privileges, to any appreciable
extent, of the constituency where tbe
Sentinel has its watch-towor. Therofore,
lacking tho necessary stimulus, that
journal, wo imagine, has not troubled
itself to look particularly iuto the matter; but, being a consistent supporter of
the present Provincial Government, and
observing that the Redistribution Bill
was a nominal Government measure, it
appears to have assumed accordingly
that the bill was all right, und that its
neighbors of tho whole Lower Mainland
who protest against it aro malcontents
and sectionalists.
Not so, friend Sentinel, but quite the
reverse, which will be apparent if you
but give the subject more careful consideration. Westminster District, Westminster City, nor Vancouver City are
striving for any advantage; they do not
ask or wish for anything more than
their simple rights, that they should be
treated on an equality with othor sections of tho Province similarly situated;
but they did not oven nsk for or expect
ns much at this time, knowing that a
thorough redistribution measure could
not be obtained before the census; they
did hope nnd expect, however, that
their just claims would have received
partial recognition; thoy certainly did
not look to be shamefully cut off with
two representatives less than they were
in bare decency entitled to, and given
the additional nnd gratuitous slap in
the face of having standing room manufactured on tho Island for three super-
uumerics.
We would ask the Sentinel, which appears to huve hastily nnd perfunctorily
Blurred over this very important Provincial question of redistribution, to consider tho following problem, and lot the
public have its honest and carefully
thought-out answer. The problem is
thia: Upon what good grounds should
7,111 voters on the Island, similarly
situated and circumstanced, but embraced in less area, and contributing
less to the revenue than 0,550 Mainland
voters, be given SIXTEEN representatives, while the latter nre allowed but
SIX? Before the "redistribution," the
representation of the two sections indicated by the above figures was, respectively, THIRTEEN and FOUR. When
an opportunity was given—and the
reasonableness and justice of such a
course (if there is any moaning in tho
words) cun not but bo apparent to anyone—why (if our cotemporary will ex-
cubq us asking another question, when
we had intended to confine ourselves to
ono) was not some slight attempt made
to equalize this glaring disproportion,
instead of aggravating it?
Wo trust the Sentinel will look carefully and thoroughly into these points,
and let us have its honest opinion on
the obvious questions we have suggested, growing out of tho so-called redistribution measure. Wo havo considerable confidence iu the inherent and
ultimate fairness of our cotemporary,
and we, therefore, believe that the
more it looks iuto this question, the
more it will be inclined to revise its
first utterance on the subject.
Tho Sentinel is hardly fair to tho
Mainland Association cither, in its reference to that organization. It quotes
a resolution submitted hy one of its members, whereas the fact that tho resolution in question was not adopted by the
AsHociution is strong proof thnt the selfishness and sectionalism which tho
Sentinel would infcrontially fix upon the
Mainland Association and the peoplo of
the Lower Mainland (of which tho Association is largely representative in
this matter) doeB not exist. The separation sentiment, which the Sentinel justly
deprecates, was, however, it might be
stated, given utterance to in one of the
Victoria papers, months ago, on this
redistribution question, the writer
arguing in effect thut the Island would
havo separation rather than give the
Mainland its rights.
On the other hand, tho Mainland Association is not a sectional organization,
but tho very reverse, its motto being
" One Province, nnd the obliteration of
" all sectional distinctions," nnd its
alms and endeavors havo boon since its
Incoption, nnd over will bo, in strict
harmony with this motto. As wub repeatedly expressed, and universally and
enthusiastically endorsed, at the inaugural meeting of tho Mainland Association lu this City, that organization would us soon champion the rights
of an Island constituency thnt required
Its assistance, us to advocate the cause
of a Mainland district in a similar situation,
As tho Lower Mainland, and thejMaiu-
land Association, do not seek for anything moro or less than the just
rights' of evory section of tho
Province, irrespectivo of accidental geographical divisions, in this matter
of redistribution—and that not upon a
hard and fust system of representation
by population, hut on some roasonublo
basis fair to all (which at present, notoriously, docs not exist)—ns tholr nims
and efforts are all in tho direction of
abolishing sectionalism once and for all
in tho Province—in short, as they are
contending far moro for a just aud bene-
MAY DAY.
Thk Royal City enjoys the unique
distinction among the the cities of British Columbia of honoring and observing
the festival of May Day. Our English
forefathers were religiously observant of
many old customs, now dead or dying
out in u money-making and utilitarian
age. The traveller through tho old
fashioned villages of the old land often
comes upon the May-pole still standing
in the midst of the greon, an almost forgotten thing except by the aged, whosadly
remember the tender memories attaching to it, which breathe of a long past
youthful gaiety,
"Whon toll remitting lent its turn to play
And all the village train, from labor free,
Led up their sports beneath the spreading tree."
The Morris dancing, and the May Day
sports, together with tho crowning of
tho "Queen," have almost vanished
from the laud which before the days of
the Reformation delighted to honor
Muy Day, not alone as the glad promise
of awakening nature, but as a religious
festival also. It is told that when
Bishop Latimer went to preach at a certain church on the first of May, iu accordance with custom, one of the parishioners came and expostulated "Sigr,
" this is a busy day with us; it is May
" Day and we cannot hear you." It is
evident from the above that the religious
aspect of May Day was even then giving
way to the purely secular, for the Bishop
quaintly adds, "Iwasfaine to depart and
"leave them to their merry-making."
At Dunmow, in Essex, we believe the
old traditions are in some sort maintained, and the married couple, who
can prove to the satisfaction of a jury of
matrons that they havo lived harmoniously for one whole year, are still entitled to demand the "flitch of bacon"
which custom has decreed Bhall be given
so happy and faithful a pair.
Who Ib there that having read Burnaby Rudge, has not been bewitched by
sweet Dolly Varden, and amused at tho
excentricities of Grip? And to-day both
the May-pole itself, and the inu of that
name, where Dolly and Grip were so well
known, nre standing, although great
London has loug ago taken Epping Forest within its embrace. With it tho
mail coach village sports and gaiety of
the old pattern went out, and tho place
of tho May Queen was usurped by Jack
in the Green, who for what few pence
could bo earned danced with his gaudily
attired companions in the streets of the
larger towns until, becoming a nuisance,
and respectable persons tiring of his
vulgar antics, ho ceased to jigand amble
to tho music of a huge drum. .But iu
Bntterseu, Liverpool, und other centres
a new celebration of Mayday has arisen,
in the annual procession of gaily flower
bedecked horses, which in those places
parade the streets. The custom of a
cart horse parade on May day Ib rapidly
spreading from city to city, and has
where adopted resulted in good, by
causing the teamster to interest himself
in the welfare of the animal he tends,
so as to be able to make a brave show ut
the festival.
There is a peculiar fitness in the keeping of May Day in this glorious country
of ours. Our delightful climate is such
that we nre apt to be deceived and
" Take futr days iu winter for the Eprlug."
When, therefore, our gardens are
beautiful with
" Daffodils
That come beforo the swallow dares und take
Tho winds of March with beauty,"
wo may conclude that spring has come
and that the summer days nre not far
off. So late, yet so magnificently brilliant when it came, has heen the spring
of this year that almost before May Day
we have summer with us. We welcome
May Day, therefore, with its sports, for
it serves to mark the time for realizing
that the long nights and chilly, gloomy,
dilatory dawns of winter are over, and
that the sunlit days, ushered In by
" Tho morn In russet mantle clad,"
are emblematic of all that is cheerful,
and hopeful in activity and life.
A dark aud gloomy obverse to the
bright and cheerful picture Uhlch May
day will present to our readers in this
favored City nnd Province Ib foreshadowed by our European despatches today, which give sure premonition of serious labor troubles, if not revolution and
bloodshed, throughout Continental Europe to-morrow.

OFFER FOR SALE  FOR A LIMITED TIME,
at the undermentioned Prices, the following
Properties on terms to suit.
SAPPERTON.
Lots in the Sub-Division of Lot 2,
Suburban Block 4, from $200 per lot.
These lots are mostly cleared, and are very sightly, commanding au unsurpassed view of the Fraser River in one direction, and Queen's Park and the upper portion of the City in the
other. This property is only about one quarter of a mile from
the Brunette Mills, and is tho best locality in Sapperton either for
residence or speculation.
Western Addition.
A few blocks and lots in the Western Addition to the City of New Westminster, Sub-Division of Lot 172, formerly the White Estate.
This sub-division, consisting of 600 lots, was pluced upon the
market by us a short timo ago, and so eager were purchasers to
buy that the entire 600 lots were sold out within one month. Wo
are now offering the above properly at slightly advanced tatos, on
behalf of former purchasers. Those who missed the chance of
buying at first pricos havo yet an opportunity of investing at
prices that cannot fail to yield a good profit. We believe that
this is tho best speculative property in the City of New Westmin
ster.
SURREY.
5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Municipality of Surrey, midway between the
Cities of New Westminster, B. C, and
Blaine, Wash., at from $30 to $40 per
acre.
This proporty is situated on the Hall's Prairie road, near the
junction of tho Langley Road, the Yale Road, and the Clover
Valley Road, within 500 yards of the proposed station of the New
Westminster Southorn Railway. Tho land is high and dry, and
the soil is first-class. .Surrey is ono of tho most prosperous sections of the District of New Westminster, and is at present enjoying quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this property will get tho valuo of their money in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at the same timo promises an excellent
field for speculation.
NORTH  ARM.
145 aores in Lot 155, near the North Arm Road,
about 21-2 miles -west of the New Westminster Oity
Post-office, at $150 per aore.
This is fine fertilo soil, chiefly prairie, and lieu well. It
has become a maxim that cities grow westward, and New Westminster is proving no exception to the rule. City lots west of
Edinburgh Streot, along the North Arm road, have doubled in
valuo in less than a year, while acre tracts have, in tho samo
time, in some instances more than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to the Westerly City Boundary is
completed, the North Arm will become the best suburban section
of tho City. Moreover, it is confidently expocted by many that
the route of the Electric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
section. Our shrewdest speculators are realizing the possibilities
of this portion of tho City, and the many sales of aero property
in the vicinity rocontly, indicate that land in the direction of the
North Arm is looked upon as one of tho best placos for investment in the District. ' Prices are bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of
City and Suburban Property, at moderate prioes and
on favorable terms, of whioh we invite examination.

CORRESPONDENCE.
ELATED OYER COAL.
Editor Columbian— Sir- Your correspondent "T," under "Surrey Notes'5
in your weekly iHBue of the 23rd inst,
Baya: "I am informed that one of our
neighbors haa discovered coal on his
property and is considerably elated (my
italics) over it."
I speak of thiB because you have recently made several public allusions to
the discovery of lignite on my property
hear Brownsville, Surrey, and since
"elated" in this connection might mean
"puffed up," "proud," "lofty,"
"haughty," "swelling," etc., etc., it is
calculated to prejudice the mind of the
strange reader.
If "T," refers to the Brownsville coal
discovery, I see nothing to be "elated
over."
Several montha after we discovered
lignite, I laid a piece on your table as
a prospectus.. While many have since
visited and examined the croppings, and
gentlemen of means have tendered finanr
cial assistance, if required for their development, I have paid no further attention to the matter except to forward
a specimen, through the Dominion Land
Ofllce, to the Government geologist at
Ottawa for-his opinion.
So far from being "elated over it," I
have not the least idea whether or not
there is anything valuable connected
with it. Others havo certainly manifested more anxiety about it than I.
- However, should it prove to be the
index to a valuable coal Hold, I would
be glad, both for myself and others. I
would not object to a good income from
such a source, and would be glad to seo
Westminster and its surroundings benefitted by ten thousand times more valuable resources of proiit than this would
be, were it to exceed even much the
most sanguine hopes expressed by
friends on the subject.
I repeat it, I see nothing in it to be
etated over. It may never be worth a
cent, I bast, no plans or calculations
upon it whatever.
Again, if I believed it to be the precursor of millions, I would not see any
reason to be elated over it. But I would
be glad if "T" and every other settler in
Surrey, would find, not merely a vein of
lignite, but one solid, inexhaustible
stratum of the best anthracite in the
world, on hia ranch, and their weary
limbs emerging from the task of eking
out a hard livelihood in order "to keep
soul and body together" might permit
the care-weru mind the privilege , of
more cultivated thought and finer feeling, which would probably be engaged
with purer purposes and nobler efforts.
But, one who haB nothing else to do
but be elated over his own success, is
envious at the good fortune of others, is
a despicable soul, and needs the impulse
of contact with higher thought and
purer motives. J. W. Stein,
Westminster, April 20, '90.
A  l.lUPf.E OF UOATH.
Editok Columbian-.—-Sir:—Everyone's
attention has been so much absorbed of
lato by the Government scheme of redistribution that I have deferred writing
to you on tho subject of a means of
communication between the right and
left banks of the Fraser.
-It will be generally admitted that of
all the land available for settlement or
human industry in the Province of Brit*
ish Columbia the Fraser valley contains
by far the larger and the fairer portion,
It will also be admitted hy all, I should
think, except those who have their eyes
in their own trousers' pockets and their
bauds in other peoples,' that nearly all
that land is on the left bank of the
river. Somehow or other the aforesaid exception have seen their way to
put the only through line of traffic on
the left bank instead of the right; where
in ancient maps there may still be found
what is somewhat sarcastically called
the Yale Wagon Road. Of thiB, with
your permission I mayt have more to say
another time; my subject now is bridge
or ferry at New Westminster.
From my point of view thore are three
things to consider: how can it be done
quickest, for the least cost, and most
effectually ? And I have ranged these
iu order of importance. Time is the
first consideration, the next, communication; bo it what it may, should be in
working order this summer if possible.
The second is an obvious point. And
lastly I believe that it should be available at any and every hour of the day
and night and should be as permanent
as possible. The one scheme which
(.omhincf. these three rcquisities to the
greatest possible extent is a bridge of
boats or floating bridge. Tins, I am of
the opinion, could be constructed easily
this summer if commenced forthwith,
it would cost littlo to maintain, for
about eleven months out of the twelve,
and probably often • nothing for
the remaining twelfth. And what
is not tin important could be
constructed for $50,000 inclusive
of cost of approaches. Moreover, it
would not interfere with tho navigation,
for Borne three or four of the pontoons
might be made moveable.
Thero are. so far as I can see, but two
possible objections. Tho structure
would be more or less temporary in its
naturo and would have to be replaced in
years to come by a permanent bridge.
And secondly, the ice, which might
prove a very serious matter if the froBt
were constantly as heavy as last winter.
Now, as to the first point, a bridge of
boats would not cost more than 25 per
cent of what n permanent bridge would
cost. It would last for .several yearn,
until the country is more fully developed aud sottlcd up than at present, and
abundant capital would then be readily
and easily forthcoming for a much
larger scheme. And it could be con-
. structed almost aa quickly as a really
good ferry. Further, the ferry could
only he worked at certain stated times;
probably not at all during the night, and
not evon in the day time if thero was
heavy .ice flii tho rivor. This second
point, the ice in winter, is no doubt a
serious question. I have never seen the
ice on tho Fraser, except iu the Upper
Canyon; but I have often enough seen
tho bridge of boats at Cologne on the
Rhine and I know what the ice is there;
and I also know that the current of the
Rhine is much swifter than the flow of
water in the Fraser; although the body
of water ia hot so large, nor so deep -
and one other point of difference is, it
always runs in one direction; Cologne
being far above the reach of the tide.
Away from home, and without any
books to refer to, I cannot call to mind
a Bridge of Boata constructed under precisely similar circumstances to those of
the Fraser at Westmlnstor; but, looking
at the matter from an engineering point
of view, I have no hesitation in stating
that a Bridge of Boats might lie constructed for $(10,000 us above, and that it
could be kept open the whole year
through, without offering any real obstacle to the navigation, for a very
trifling sum. Tho bridge I propose
would have a central roadway capable of
taking 4 lines of horse traffic (two in
each direction) and two sidewalks of TO
feet wide each. For the edification of
those who have not Been such a bridge I
may say that the stream will work the
moveable pontoons, both out of place
and back into it again; all that would
be required would do the services of the
man, who, under any circumstances,
would have to be employed more or less
constantly about the bridge; he might
have a residence nt one end, and be paid
say $00 a month, This pay would form
tlie chief item of annual expenditure.
Or suppose it were necessary to have
two such men, tho second at $50a month,
the expenditure would he but nominal
compared with the advantages resulting
to the town,
I am sir, yours very faithfully,

Krltlih  Columbia to the Front.
The Dominion Government Emigration Agent in Scotland (Thomas Graham, 40 St. Enoch Square, Glasgow),
in his report to Sir Charles Tupper,
dated 31st December, 1889, says: "There
continues to be a great desire in all
classes for tlie fullest information regarding the now districts in the Northwest, tlie Mackenzie basin and British
Columbia—the latter more particularly
—as its varied and important interest's
from becoming better known, are the
more highly appreciated." Again lie
says: "I have been kept well supplied
with our literature of all descriptions.
I would, however, suggest that if in
some pamphlet—a short account of alt
tho minerals in the various provinces
was published, it would prove of great
value as I have frequent inquiries on
this subject, more particularly as regards Nova Scotia and British Columbia." Iu another place lie remarks:
"Ou account of the great expense involved iu sending out the poorer classes
of emigrants who think of going to British Columbia and other new districts, as
compared with other provinces of the
Dominion. I think it would be worth
taking into consideration whether some
plan could be devised by which the
worthiest of such people might be enabled to go at less cost than ia at present
the case. I have como in contact with
many instances when that alone (the
coBt) has been the deterrent to numbers
going."

(Had May Day.
Every detail in the arrangements for
the due and proper celebration of the
glad May Day in the Royal City is .complete, and fine weather is now all that is
required to make the occasion one of ttic
most notable and successful in the history of the observation of the day in
WeBtminster. Fine weather has hinted
bo long that surely Mr. Jupiter Pluvius
will hold back his watering can for another day and not dampen the ardor of
tho little ones who have looked forward
with delightful anticipations for so many
weeks to a glorious day of happiness.
The programme for to-morrow will be
carried out much as follows: Atl o'clock
sharp, the gallant Hyacks wilt assemble
at their hall on Columbia Street, and
headed by the band, will eacort the carriages containing the Queen-elect, ox-
Queen and Maids of Honor to tiie park,
by way of Columbia, Ellicc, Agnes,
Royal Avenue and Park Lane. On arriving at the park the speeches of tho
Queen and ex-Queen will be delivered,
which will be followed by dancing
round tho Muy pole in accordance
with the ancient and happy
custom that has always obtained. Then
the good things in the shape of oranges,
confections etc., will be served out to
the youngsters and dancing on the green
will be the next item on the programme.
Games, races and other amusements
will follow, lasting till about six o'clock,
when a cessation of the festivities will
take place for an hour. During the
afternoon tho merry-go-round will be
running continually, and the children
aro welcome to ride as often as they like
aud free of charge.
In tlio evening at Herring's operu
house tho dancing will commence at 7
o'clock, and continue until 10 o'clock,
when the little ones will retire ana
abandon the building to the oldsters,
who will trip the "light fantastic" for
aii hour or two longer.
POLICE   COURT.
A   Highly  Plowing    Entertainment  by
Clever  Children,    Generously
Patronized by the  Public.
The Oddfellows' Hall was crowded to
the doora last night by au intelligent
and good-natured audience. The Loyal
Legion, composed of ladies belonging to
the different city churches, were the originators and managers of the entertainment ; and the flattering success which
has attended their laudable efforts waB
as remarkable as it was deserved. The
singing of the little tots, some of them
not more than three years of age, was
surprisingly good; and the youthful
sweetness and freshness of their voices,
added to their air of perfect confidence,
completely captivated the audience, who
awarded the infantile singers a generous meed of applause. Not a single
hitch occurred during the entire entertainment, due, principally, to the ad'
mirable training the ohildren had undergone and the excellence of the arrangements. The costumes of the singers
were exceedingly pretty and displayed
excellent good taste. When massed together on the platform the effect waa
charming.
The decorations, also, deserve a word
of praiBe; they were very handsome and
well-chosen and reflected credit upon
those who selected and placed them.
The whole entertainment did not last
over an hour, and its excellence made
the audience wish that it had been
longer. Every person present was very
well pleased nnd one gentleman who
was in the audience, assured the writer
that he had paid a dollar often to see far
inferior exhibitions. There is some
talk of the entertainment being repeated
soon. Should the ladies decide to do bo,
they may rest confident of the heartiest
pub'tic support, as only favorable comments were to be heard on the streets
to-day concerning last night's success.

Women aud Their Wateliei.
The idea that women's watcnes on a
bracelet of leather Is something new,
as stated by a New York paper the
othor day, struck me as being funny.
Wo have had them for two years. I
confess that I think It Is a good idea.
Any idea whioh will make a woman
waar a watch where she will pay it some
attention Is a good one. The majority
ot women do not know how to treat a
watch. They put it In their dresses so
the chains will show, and they seem to
think that will regulate their timepieces. They forget half the time to
wind their watches and then wonder
why they don't keep the correct time.
A fortune awaits the milliner who will
make a placo in a woman's dress where
a watch oan be carried so that when
it is taken out the idea will occur to the
wearer to give it proper attention,—Chicago Tribune*
Baronen B.'» Eccentricity.
A Baroness E—, the widow of the
last Swedish Governor of Sweaborg,
who surrendered the fortress to the Russian troops in 1809, was very beautiful in her younger days. When Alexander the First went to Helslngfors to
open the Finland Parliament, a ball
was given in his honor, and he led off
tho dance with the General's wife
(Baroness E—), and with hiB usual
gallantry kissed hor hand. The lady
decided to carry that kiss with her to
the grave, and from that hour Bhe never
washed her right hand, but always wore
a kid glove. In her old age this peculiar
habit proved, shall we say, somewhat
offensive, and Bhe found it difficult to
induce people of her own rank and station to join her at a game of whiBt, To
gratify this, her only passion, she offered
froe board, lodgings and clothing to
throe poor students at tho unlvorslty,
whose only obligation was to play whist
with tho old Baroness for a eouplo of
hours  overy evening.—San Francisco

NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, APRIL. 30, 1890.
NUMBER 75.
TO THE ELEOTORS
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In viow of the near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of our late
representative (tho much-respected D.
Chisholm) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before you
some of my viewa on the leading queu*
tions which I consider will arise in the
near future for coiiHideration.
I have been asked what I mean when
I announce myself aB a Liberal-Conservative; I reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residence of over 30 years in thia Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has had tbe effect of
changing many of my views, and given
me liberal ideas, therefore I claim! am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact thut party lines are not denned in
British Columbia as they are in the older
provinces, I consider that our representatives are not in duty bound to give a
througk-thick-and-lhin Bupport to any
party, but they Bhould go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
good measures which may be brought
before them, and to consider the prosperity of tbe Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, and
Bhould a measure come before them
which they consider in any way detrimental to the interests of this Province
they should take their stand like true
men and vote against it.
I nm opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of every-day
use to our Fanners and others, and
which we cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily und at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, and in many cases the articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles are brought from the States, although the duties arc so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raist enough to supply our wants, and
arc obliged to cross the border for it,
and are mot with such heavy duties
that heads of families iu this Province
pay more than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
We have had example to the point during the last three mouths,. If wu had
not received a good supply from California there would have been a meat
famine; aB it is we are now nnd have
been paying 25 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and tbe same statu of
affairs is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection'.' for the last -cloven years
our stock raisers are little better prepared to meet hard winters than they
were before, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
N. P. are the manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question,I would advocate "Reciprocity"
in many articles which are at present in the Tariff lists, as I think
it would be beneficial to both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go down so deep into his
pockets to buy what ho needs to eat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
have a revenue to carry on tlie affairs of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more and get at the pockets of the
richer classes who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of tho lato Mr. Chisholm, he was unable
to be in his place this session, and very
littlo during the previous one, so we of
this District havo heen practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before the notice of
the House. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
beeu iu his seat, I do not think the PoBt-
master-General would have beon left so
much in the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Fraser as he seems to have been
when he proposed to cut off tho mail
subsidy from that important route, and
thore are other places iu tlie District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider should receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope that iu the near future our
District will reach that point that we
may look for it to be divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, and when the census
returns are in I think the necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation.
Tho protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also the works for improving
tho channel at the Sandheads, in view
of tho expected increase in our shipping
interests.
I consider tho Province should havo
control over nil railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
groat importance to this District in particular, I feel Bhould receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through tho Delta lands from the mouth
of thu Serpentine to Fraser River, nlso
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from tho Fraser River to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to mo.
Inimigration, I consider, should be
fostered, aud encouraged judiciously.
JiiBt at present It is coming horo fast
enough; I would not like to see a large
influx.pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably nive our glorious Province
a bad name.       -v.
There are many othcc.matters I should
like to touch upon, but lt,yyould make
this address too long. I hope .<y see as
many as possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my viewo.
more fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will Bend due notice of time and place of meetings.
During my long residence in the Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I havo the honor to be elected
I assure you I Bhall watch over the interests of this District faithfully and to
tho best of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go as a true British Columbian and to do my duty as such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. -TOWNSEND.
