Poor Old ftnlmrah.
New Yobk, April 8.—Henry B. Slavin,
formerly a San Francisco druggist, but
more generally known elsewhere by his
connection with the dredging of the
Panama canal, has a new scheme on
hand. A well-known civil engineer and
intimate friend of Slavin says that the
latter line just sailed for Egypt. Slavin
announced that his visit to the hind of
the ancient Pharaohs waa merely for
pleasure, but his engineering friend lias
good grounds for stating that Slavin intends trying his old scheme of flooding
the Saharah desert by a cutting a canal
from tho Red Sea.

New York, April B.—A special to the.{

this morning. A letter found ou his
desk explained that he had taken his
life because his wife had frequently
wished he was dead, and he did it to
gratify her. He had taken twelve grains
of morphine, Skidmore wns given to
drinking at times, and was intoxicated
when he took his life. He was a man of
considerable means, aud his wife a most
estimable woman.
A Feud Settled.
New York, April 8.—The World's
special from Louisville says: " The
Spurlocks, Days and others, representing both the Howard and Turner factions,
have just held a pow-wow aud both
sides agreed to suspend hostilities and
forever bury the hatchet, aud it was
also mutually agreed that should any
more bushwhacking take place, both
sides would turn out and hunt the assassin down.

Young Proctor Intane.
St. Joseph, Mo., April 8.—There is
much excitement here over the strange
actions of Richard Proctor, only son of
the lato famous English astronomer,
who died in New York a year ago of
yellow fever. Proctor, who is a young
man of 21, has,. until recently, been
looked upon as unusually intelligent.
About two months ago, however, lie
began to actstraugely, wandering abroad
at night and hurling stones through tho
windows of residences. At his own
home he would frequently chop furniture to pieces. Two weeks ago Mrs.
Proctor took him to Denver, where Bhe
lectured, and he amused himself in the
Pullman car by appropriating the raiment of the sleeping female passengers
and dressing iu the garments. He was
only induced to surrender them to the
owners in the morning by force. He
believes he is very wealthy and owns all
the real estate in St. Joseph. He contracts large debts, which are with difficulty paid by his mother and Bisters,
who are poor. It waB decided this afternoon to nave him committed to an insane asylum. He has been prominent
in society and is a well-known amateur
cotillion leader.   .
The Plutnbtri Settle.
Chicago, April 8.—The plumbers
strike waB practically settled this morning at a conference between committees
of the journeymen plumbers and the
master plumbers. The conditions of the
settlement are a compromise and provides a minimum of $3.60 a day for all
journeymen plumbers, and an increase
of 25 per cent in the wages of juniors.
The agreement Is to be formally ratified
at a joint meeting.
occurred. Several of the players suffered
slight cuts and contusions, and one gentleman fainted on account of another
gentleman sitting down forcibly on the
'first gentleman's stomach. Ward, of
the Islanders, bore a bandage round his
head in the second part of the fray and
seemed not at all disconcerted by the
hard knocks hiB shapely cranium had
sustained. Each side won a touch
down. The crowd was just like all other
crowds in all other places; and, there
being no police on the ground, they
wandered like so many sheep out into
the field and in the way of the players.
The most unbounded delight was' expressed by the assembled multitude
when the Islanders won the goal, and
their wild shouts rent the sky for some
minutes. A good sprinkling of Main-
landers shouted their own particular
slogan for the encouragement and benefit of their friends, and really made
Suite a creditable amount of. noise and
isorder. After the match the two
teams adjourned to, the Clarence, and in
the evening sat down to a sumptous ban-'
quet, from which many of them never
rose; although the proceedings were by
no means fatal. A most enjoyable evening . was spent and the discomfitted
Maiulanders took their defeat with an
easy grace. The major portion of the
team returned to Vancouver this morn-
on the Islander.
There can bo no doubt that this defeat
has taught the Maiulanders a little lesson they should not, and probably will
not, soon forget. They came down here
' ' a perfectly sure of victory; aud

London, April 8.—The Federal Princes
of the German Empire have no sort of
belief iu the brilliant capacity of the
Emperor William. They are disgusted
aud terrified ut the recent vagaries.
The Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gothn took
advantage of his relationship to remonstrate in strong terms with tho Emperor
and he wns justified in so doing as a
trusted friend and the confidential
adviser of his majesty's father aud grand
father, but Ills-protests were of no avail.
The Duke was so indignant that he refused to stay in Berlin, but went off to
Coburg in high dudgeon. The Duke's
sentiments are most fully shared by the
King of Saxony, the Prince Regent of
Bavaria and above all tho Grand Duke
of Baden. ':         ■

The Fltharlet Negotiation*
Washington, April 7.—The State Department is like a clam. It is practically shut up. Officials who are easy of
access are not at liberty to say anything
for publication and Secretary Blaine,
who is, la not to be Been, All efforts to
find out anything about the recent or
pending negotiations about the fisheries
luestion or the seal fishery question in
wiring Sea, or reciprocity negotiations
with South American republics have
been futile. The State Department
officials will not even admit that such
negotiations are In progress. They have
even nine so far as to refuse to affirm
that Hon. Charles Tumter waB in Washington, when lie could be seen any day
at the Arlington Hotel, from which he
has mode frequent visits to the residence
of Secretary Blaine, half a square distant. In fact, but little or no information of public interest is given out from
the State Department, and Secretary
Blaine, since tne death of Mr. Walker
Blaine, who was the medium of communication between the public and the
secretary, has lost, in the estimation of
many of his warmest friends, much
2utation by his secretiveness about
.irs of which the public has a right to
be informed.
THE GREAT MATCH.
Editor Columbian.—Str—It is a prevalent idea with many people interesting themselves with the bridge vs. ferry
communications in your valuable paper
that there is a "nigger on the fence,"
when they make the broad insinuations
about bogus engineers aud designs specially adapted to natural locations. Are
not our city fathers competent men to
discriminate between gross deception,
which would deprive us of our private
and public rights, and the edification of
social and financial prosperity of the
City so lucidly portrayed by a morning
cotemporary as the City of "salmon and
sawdust7"
It is not essential in discussing the
merits of a bridgo or ferry, for the bene-
\ fit of the public, to become personal or
conspicuous, neither is it consistent
with hard earned, well merited distinction in practical engineering to become
a public benefactor, when there are
many receiving considerations from our
public treasury for more trivial services
rendered than would an accurate calculation on this important question.
But, without contaminating myself, I
may assert, for the benefit of "Enquirer"
and others of his cIusb "me," that with
the present circumstances of our City,
there ia not to be found mat, which to
a speculative mind would be a criterion
of the actual irrespective of the relative,
value, based ou solid foundations. Can
he contend that a ferry would be as effective to theso moans and as consistent
with our modern progressiveness of mechanical engineering as a bridge would
bo.
It may have been intimated that a
much less sum than $100,000 would
erect tho required structure capable of
withstanding nature's consequences for
25 or SO years, and at tlie expiration of
that time one-half the primary cost will
(From Our Own t'orrcMpondcnf.)
All event of more than usual interest
was unintentionally omitted last week.
It was the marriage on March 20th of
Miss Whiteside of Lulu Island to Mr.
Wm, Lord. The ceremony was performed by the RewMr. Jaffray, at the Presbyterian church, in the presence of a
largo number of friends and invited
guests. After luncheon at the manse
the happy couple left for Victoria via
Vancouver.
A detachment of- the Westminster
corps of the Salvation Army visited tlie
North Arm on Wednesday evening. A
fair audience attended the service in
the Town Hall, but it lacked the enlivening songs and street parade that always
precede their services in town. It is
not their intention to continue these
efforts in this locality.
Tho regular monthly meeting of the
W. C. T. U. waB held at Mrs. Garratt's.
There was a good attendance. One now
member was received.
The social on Friday evening as was
anticipated was in every respect a sue-
ccsb. The weather was all that could
be desired and the attendance good.
The tea was ample iu quantity and- excellent in quality. Mr, Sweet made a
model chairman, being in his happiest
?;ivo au uninterrupted communication
or half a century from date.
Considering tho time required to build
a temporary ferry, which would at least
be three months, and the several thousand dollars which inevitably would be
thrown away, I cannot see where the
city shall gain thereby, as it is possible,
considering the intervention of two and
half months of high water, to complete
a bridge of said qualities before 1st January. 1891.
It is unnecessary to postpone any of
the public works at present, unless the
credit of Westminster is becoming depreciated in financial value on account
of sedulocity in permainent improve

Victoria, April 8.—There was only
one drawback to the suitability of Easter Monday afternoon for playing foot
ball, and that waB the strong wind from
the -south-west. About 8 o'clock the
crowds began to arrive from town, and
very Boon Beacon Hill was alive with
the motley assemblage of every rank of
Victoria's social life. Carriages, many
of them very smart turn-outs, drove
around the course, and a considerable
number of equestrians pranced up nnd
down. At 3:80 the game began and
from start to finish might lie described
as one long melee. The work done bj
both clubs was splendid; and although
the scrimmages were incessant and
fierce, the utmost good nature prevailed
on both sides. On account of the wind
a good many throws-In from the lee side
According to the gist "enquirer's
gument, whereby tha effectiveness of a
ferry service will comply with the community's wants for two or threo years
more, why should it be requisite at all to
improve on the present system of transition? Does it not supply the present
necessity; though somewhat dilatory in
its regularity, like our Citv Council?
In regard to that railway scheme, so
vividly portrayed to the world as an
artificial advertisement of our natural
propensities in thiB vicinity, there are
ways aud means of subsistence which if
acted upon would be more beneficial
than the contaminating assimilation of
monopolism, which inevitably shall be
the result if our lot is cast upon the
dependence ou railway bridges or ferries.

Wheat in Italy.—The-first year's
experiments In wheat-growing by the
Association of Proprietors and Farmers
of Naples are reported to have shown
that English varieties of wheat are not
adapted to so warm a climate as that of
Italy. The most productive variety
proved to be the Noo from the south of
France, two Italian varieties coming
next in order. The trials of manures
were unsatisfactory, but the benefit of
good cultivation and of surface draining
(each plot of about fifty square yards
wai raised above the level of the surrounding paths) was incidentally apparent, the yield of the un manured plots
being double that ot the neighboring
land under ordinary cultivation.

statesmen, and her religious advantages.
It was interspersed with many humorous

the happy art of making. The address
was interesting and instructive throughout and replete with warm parriotisin

THE DOMINION BUDGET.
Speeches of Sir Ulc-iard Cartwright and
Uon. O. C. Colby on Mr. Fatter't Budget
Speech, For and Agalntt.
Sir Richard Cartwright, in reply to
Hon. Mr. Foster, said: I listened to the
speech of the Hon. the Minister of Finance, delivered this afternoon, with a
feeling of profound regret. To me, and
I think to most men. no matter what
their political proclivities may be, who
have paid any serious attention to the
state of affairs iu Canada, our position
at this moment must appear, in many
respects, to be botli critical and delicate.
The Finance Minister told us that tlie
last year had been a fairly satisfactory
one. I tell him and I tell this House,
that not for thirty-five years has there
been in the annals of Canada, aud notably not a year in the annals of the Province of Ontario, in which, iu. many
portions of the country, there has been
such extreme distress and such well
founded apprehensions for tho future. I
take issue with the Finance Minister in
the strongest possible terms, when he
states that, on the whole, the last year
has been a satisfactory one, and much
more, when ho stated that our farmers
and fishermon were in a condition of
fair prosperity—that want was practically unknown, that labor had found full
and fair remuneration in Canada, and
that all we need, forsooth, to make us a
united and hapny peopu., was swift communication with the West Indies and
about proper and friendly relations with
the people of the United StateB. What
has been the course of these honorable-
gentlemen from that day to this? It can
be characterized as nothing but a succession of imbecile blunders. I say that
in dealing with the United States these
honorable gentlemen opposite, from first
to last, have displayed an utter want of
stateinanship and capacity for Government. A great crisis ana a great depression in the United States would
mean great injury and great loss to an
enormous number of our people.
MB.   COLBY   BKI'LIKS.
Hon. Mr. Colby followed and said:
Mr. Speaker, the House ia fatigued,
and I am fatigued, aud if the task, which
J now propose to undertake was a very
heavjf one I should certainly not undertake it at this hour. The whole effort
which the lion, gentleman seems to have
made was to impress upon the House
the idea that farmers in the Province of
Ontario are in great distreBB. I am not
uncandid enough to say to thiB House
that I believe the condition of agriculture anywhere on thiB continent of
America Ib in a prosperous condition today. I do not think that agriculture in
the ciyilirfiwrld is in a prosperous
condition to-day, There are causes beyond the control of any Government,
WUU-IlgO'll   lUIlg i.«(V-<raAtMl.>vlln.v
prosperity or the failure of the agriculture clasB iu any aud in all countries.
I think, so far as the productions of the
soil are concerned, we have hardly a
record of a more uniform abundance than
has prevailed over the civilized world for
a few years past. New agricultural fields
are being developed in various parts of
the world, the products of which come
into competition with those of the older
sections. These causes, apart from any
fiscal policy whatever, have occasioned
a depression among the agricultural
class the world over. But I venture to
say that the hon. gentleman may examine tbe condition of the agricultural
class iu any State of the United
States, in anyt part of the continent of
America, or in any other country with
which we are familiar, and he cannot
find a record of so much prosperity and
so little suffering as there is in the Province of Ontario to-day.
Mr. Blue takes a period of seven yeara,
from 1882 to 1888, inclusive, and he
shows that while the average value for
those years was $637,732,000, the value
for tho last year, 1888, waa $640,000,(WO,
proving that there has been, from year
to year during those seven yearB, a steady
increase iu farm values, aud that the
last year of which he gives evidence, It
gives a higher value than the previous
years or than the average of seven years.
And the same thing is true with regard
to farm buildings- The average of the
seven years is $172,000,000, and the estimate for last year, 1888, is $188,000,000.
The same is. true of'form implements,
the averago of the Beveu yeara being
$40,000,000, whereas the value last year
was $40,000,000. The same is true of
live stock, the average value of the seven
years being $99,000,000, and the estimated value of last year being. $102,000,000.
The same statement holds good with regard to the total value of farm property,
the average for the seven years being
$050,882,048, and last year's value being
$981,308,094. Now I throw do.wn this
gauntlet decidedly and clearly. ,„I find
that intheUiuted States the average
'value per acr^oTforvhoat was $&.44, while
in the ProvinceTpf Ontario, this poor,
distressed province—what were his
Words? "Murmurs.of. distress;" "extreme distress in fintario;" "a great
auiount of distress"—in this exceedingly distressed province^^irm-quoting the
hon. gentleman's words—the value per
acre was $15.78 as against $0.44 in the
United States. I find that in.the article
of corn in the United States, the value
per acre was $9.32, while iu Outarie, according to Mr. Blue—I do not know
what private sources of intprmation my
hon. friend may have—but according to
the       ■   • ■  ■
$18.1.  .,..   -   .
United States. In the article of barley,
the value in tho United States was $12.67
per acre as against $14.98 per acre in
Ontario. In oats the value in the United
States is $8.08 as compared with $12.88
in Ontario,   In buckwneat the value is
provincial statistician the value was
per acre as against $9.82 in the
$7.05 in the United States as against
$8.77 in poor distressed Ontario.' These
figures are taken from the "Statistical
Abstract of the United States, 1888,"
and from the "Annual Report of the
Bureau of Industries for the Province of
Ontario, 1888," I find in a recent article
in the "Canadian Journal of Commerce"
a similar comparison with some of the
very best agricultural States."
My honorable friend wishes to pool
tho termers of Ontario with the farmers
of tho United States. I tell him that
the farmers of Ontario are better off today. They do not want to go into partnership with the farmers of Vermont;
tbey do not want to come under any of
those conditions which brought Vermont to the situation In which Bhe finds
herself to-day. I toll the honorable
gentleman that if the farmers In Ontario and in the Dominion of Canada
are iu a better condition than the farmers in Vermont and in New York—and
statistics show that they are—it is because we have protected our farmers; I
declare that boldly, it is because wo
have given protection to our farmers iu
our markets, so that tho products of the
farmer may be Bold at fair prices in the
local market. Even now, does the hon.
gentleman suppose that we for one
moment could compete on oven terms
in tlio markets tbat are common to
Canada and the United States, if wo
were ono country? Can we produce
com as cheaply aa they can? Can we
produce tho equivalent of corn as cheaply as they can? I say we cannot .Our
barley is the nearest equivalent to their
corn for feeding purposes. The unrestricted admission of their corn would
lower tho price of our barley. That
would be the effect also upon all the
coarse grains which the farmers produce and will produce, notwithstanding
tho high scientific farming that is coming by and bye. The average price of
corn m Chicago for seven or eight years
past has been 40 cents per bushel, while
that of Canadian barley for the same
period has beeu about 57 cents per
bushel. Our prices are bettor than
their prices, and will continue to bo
better, provided wo continue to persist
In those methods which we have adopted In recent years in order to keep those
prices up, I am sure the farmers of
this country will endorse me whon I say
that free trade between Canada and the
United States in all agricultural products, would be tho worst possible thing
that could happen to the farmers of
Canada at the present time. I did hope
that the hon, member for South Oxford
(Sir Richard Cartwright) would touch
on some broader grounds in his speech,
and I had prepared some answers to
matters to which 1 thought he would
refer, but he was in Iub congenial sphere
IRl
of speaking of the distress of the "farm1
ers of Ontario, and I have merely g1—-
him something for his consolation.
that ho may sec that his poor distressed
friends, as he thinks they nre, are no
worse situated than people elsewhere.

COUNTING THE COST.
Although the great majority of tho
correspondents who have written on the
subject in this paper seem to favor the
idea of the Council undertaking a bridge
instead of a ferry, no serious attempt has
been made hy any of tlie writers to give
an idea as to tho cost or length of time
which such a structure would require for
building. At least, one correspondent,
it is true, intimates vaguely that a traffic
bridge could bo built for about $100,000,
and completed by January lBt next;but
no hint is given as to what sort of bridge
thiB would be: that is, as to whether it
is a suspension, draw, or floating bridge
that the correspondent has in his mind's
eye; whether the material is to bo all
wood (which might ho inferred from the
prO-.i.in-iA srn-tu of tile spalls'and draw
(if any); whether allowance is made for
single or double wagon tracks, besides
' footways for pedestrians, and as to the
approximate carrying capacity of
bridge at this point costing about the
sum mentioned.
When we threw open our columns to
tlie "Bridge or Ferry" discussion, it
was not, of course, witli the idea that
anyone would go to tho length of sub'
mitting detailed estimates and diagrams
of a bridge through the paper, but we
did imagine that, amongst our numerous
readers, there might be some with sufficient technical knowledge, and patriotism, to furnish some practical information on the subject, with sufficient
detail and particularity, to enable
the Council and the ratepayers to judge
pretty accurately whether they would
be justified in taking oven the preliminary steps in the mutter (which, it is
unnecessary to say, would mean a considerable expenditure of valuable time
and money before the real work of construction could begin). No Bucb information, however, has been forthcoming,
and, in the absence of it, the Council
and the ratepayers, it is to be feared,
would be jeopardizing the City's in
terosts by delaying any further to take
the necessary steps for putting on a
first-class ferry for tho work required.
ThiB view of the subject is strengthened when it is remembered that it
niust he generally conceded a temporary ferry will be required in any event.
The difference in the cost of maintaining a propor and a temporary ferry,
however, could not, in the nature of the
case, be very great, and, under all tho
nirciiu-rtaii.es, the difference of a few
thousand in the cost of the first construction should not, we believe, he
considered.
INTERIOR COMMENT.
Oun oxcellent cotemporury tho Kamloops Sentinel is well qualified to speak
, on subjects affecting tho mining interests of the Province and the Interior
generally, and wo have pleasure in reproducing tlie following comments on
questions of current interest, which we
cau henrtly endorse ns to the essential
particulars:
It will he gratifying intelligence to
our readers generally and those of the
interior in particular, that construction
work on the Shuswap & Okanagan Railway is to commence ut once. Already
workmen are on the field and vigorous
work will be done until the whole is
completed. The contractors assert positively that the line will be in active and
successful operation by the end of the
year, and wo know we but echo the wish
of every resident iu the interior in hoping Btich may be the case. This line
will open up one of the finest agricultural sections in the Dominion, and will
afford an outlet for produce that will be
of immense advantage to the whole
Province, but more particularly to those
in the favored section. It will also afford an outlet for a good agricultural
section farther south, by means of water
communication on Okangan Lake and
river. The beginning of construction
inaugurates a revival of trade that will
be felt throughout the whole Province.
Our Spallumcheeii friends have reason
to feel elated at the bright prospects in
store for them in the near future.
The dispatch from Ottawa published
laBt week announcing that tho Domin-
ign Government had decided to admit
mining machinery, not manufactured in
Canada, free of duty for three years,
would no doubt surprise every person interested hi mining In this Province, the
more so when considered In connection
with tho very earnest and able appeals
previously mado by tho Provincial Legislature and the B. C. members for free
admission of all mining machinery. The
concession made, as contained in the
tariff bill, will In of no practical advantage to miners in British Columbia, and
mining development will be in consequence still delayed. It must be apparent to any one that the policy of the
Government on' this question is a grievously short-sighted ono and we much
in stake' the people of British Columbia
if a vigorous protest is not entered
against It, and a further demand made
for What has so long beon contended for
—the free admission of all machinery
used in developing and opening up the
mineral resources of the countrp.
The Mines Committee presented their
report to tho House on Monday last and
recommended several material and excellent changes to tho Mineral Act. One
of the most important, and one that
wlll bo approved of by overy miner, or
others interested in mining, is, that
" each district lie divided ip$, mining
" divisions each witli its mining record-
" er, and that all dahlia lying within
" any division must no recorded in each
"division. Also that each'recorder
" ahull tap duplicates of all records
.which shall bo kept open -for' inspec-
, tioti to any free minor/1 If wo read the
latter clause aright duplicates ol all
records In the Province will lie kept In
edch division, and if that is tho case the
v»lu- and.lmpo.tance of the change to
the miner cannot be estimated. A second excellent recommendation is to tho
effect "that in the Mining Act the
"olauses relating to mineral claims be
"separated from those which relate to
"placer mining." It is to be hoped this
suggestion will bo adopted, as much confusion is caused under present regulations. There aro other changes to the
Mineral Act, that, If adopted, would aid
largely in developing and opening up
the mineral resources of the Province.
A reduction in the first and subsequent
cost of a free miner's license; the repeal
of the iniquitous section 169 of the Mineral Act, whereby any person engaged or
employed in mining who has accidentally lost or misplaced his certificate
and does not immediately produce it on
application by the proper officer, is liable
to nave his property confiscated, or the
goods and chattels on the premises occupied by him, whether they be his property or the property of any other person, to satisfy the cost of a certificate,
together with coBts of seizure and sale.
Section 2 of the Act to amend the Mineral Act passed in 1889 Bhould also receive some consideration.   By this section "any man working for wages on a
'mineral claim of any kind,  without
having taken out and obtained a free
miner's license, shall, on summary
"conviction, forfeit and pay a penalty
"not exceeding t_6,   besides   costs."
This is a rank piece of injustice to the
laboring man engaged in the developing
of another man's claim.    It might with
equal justice—or rather injustice—be
enacted that every person who works
for wages as n tradesman or mechanic,
who does not take out and obtain a
trader's license, shall be liable to a fine
the same ns the laborer on the mineral
claim.   The cases are analogous and
when looked at In that connection the
injustice of the Act is plain.   These are
matters that Bhould be inquired into',
nnd a change moro in accordance with
justice made.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is estimated that no less than 250,-
000 bushels of seed grain will be required
to enable the farmers of North Dakota
who experienced a failure of crops last
year, and some who lost their crops for
two years in succession, to seed the land
which they now have under cultivation.
A Cleveland paper thinks it looks
and absconder'to skip to Spain, get conscience stricken, return to take his punishment and then plead "not guilty" in
a Arm voice when arraigned for examin
ation. But that's the way of it, and no
one must wonder over tho queer happenings of these days.—Ex.
Quoting Tin; Columbian, the Hail
says: "Several fur seals have recently
been seen in the Fraser river at New
Westminster" and facetiously and pertinently adds: "It is to be hoped that
Mr. Blaine will not declare the Fraser
to be a part of the territorial waters of
Alaska over which the United States
has dominion. He might as well do so,
however, as claim that Behring Sea is a
mare claumm.
A burglar, while ransacking a house
in Chicago the other night, Bays an exchange, was greeted with a "Hello,
thore!" in u sepulchral voice from the
gloom of a recessed corner, He stood
not upon the order of his going, but went
nt ouce. A pet parrot had worked in its
sole stock of English with admirable results. The burglar dropped a purloined
overcoat in his haste to get away, hut
he subsequently recovered from his
scaro sufficiently to enter two other
houses, whero ho secured several overcoats and $40 in money.
It has frequently been suggested, says
the Bail, tbat there is quite as much
reason why Crco should be an official
language in the Northwest ns that
French should he so honored. It seems,
however, thut there is much greater
reason. The Prince Albert Saikatchewan
says that" even the greater majority of
French half-breeds speok Cree much
better than they speak French. Cree is
their mother tongue; they speak it
familiarly in their homes, amongst their
children, and to their half-breed and
Indian companions. And the French is
to them even a second language."
Parishoner (troubled with doubts)—
'Mr. Honeyman, I should like to hear
you preach a sermon next Sunday or tho
Sunday following on 'How to Become a
Christian,' 'Is Salvation Necessary?' or
some such topic." Popular Clergyman
(reflectively)—"Let me sec. Next Sunday morning and evening I expect to
preach on "Economic Problems' anil
'Influence of Egyptian Art on Modern
Civilisation.' My subjects for several
successive discourses in regular order
will be: 'The Illusions of Philosophy,'
Relative Importance of Dogmatism and
Science,' 'Are Secret Societies Comme nd-
able?' 'Bellamylsin,' and 'Are We Not
Sporting Nation?' I don't think I
can get around to it, Mr. Brownson, for
a month or two yet." .
The presence of lady reporters in the
Parliamentary press gallery at Ottawa,
while a novelty and confined to n very
few members, has never been regarded
as threatening any wrench to the r«_-
stitutioii. But they look at such things
differently in Britain. Mr. BradUugh-
asked the other day, in tho Imperial
Parliament, if any order of the House
prevented a lady filling a vacancy In-tho
gallery. Tlie Speaker replied that Uiere
was no order, but tho Bcrgoant-at-arms
had just refused a lady, who, said, she
represented a journal advocating
woman's political and social rights, a
seat therein. The Speaker thought the
refusal a very proper proceeding, and
went on to say:.- " I would not think it
right to Intervene unless I hod the express and direct sanction of the Houso,
in a lnatterwhlch isanovelty, and which
might lead to consequences which it is
difficult at this moment to forseo." Fortunately, this terrible dictum, was received with "great laughter," a tribute
to .tbe common sense of tbe inonihev*,—

Our beautiful city is dormant no longer, its long silence has
suddenly ended, and it now ranks foremost among the cities of
the Pacific Coast; its wealth and population have increased at a
remarkable rate.
In 1888 the total value of taxable property in the city limits
was hardly $1,000,000, while to-day it aggregates nearly $5,000,000,
In 1887 the population was 3,000, now it is over 8,000.
The City Council has undertaken immense public works, and
a large number of public and private buildings are under construction.

Ups aud Downs of Important Literary
Work! of Antiquity.
The upa and downs of many an impor-
tant literary work of antiquity have
been most singular. In a very unique
way they demonstrate the correctness
ot the classical dictum "habent sua fata
1106111." It is well known that the accidental discovery in a waste-basket in
the Mount Sinai clolater of several
leaves of the Codex Sinaitious led to the
finding by Tischendorf of that moBt famous manuscript of the New Testament. A recent publication by the
French savant, Omont, has drawn at*
tention to the strange fate of another
old manuscript, and at the same time
indicates the laborious methods to
which scholars must resort in order to
rediscover some of the lost remains of
ancient literatures. In one of the well-
known cloisters on Mount Athos, where
more than twenty thousand Greek manuscripts are preserved and awaiting
further research, there existed at one
time a sixth-century copy of the Pauline
opistles. In the thirteenth century
monkish ignorance destroyed this valuable document, and used tho leaves
ns binding for later and inferior
books. A number of these manuscripts in the soventeeth century found
Uiolr way to Western Europe,' and
oitjne into possession of tho French
('mncellor, Pierre Segnier, and aro now
fumid in tho Blbllothoque Natlonale In
Purls. In tho year 1715 Montfaucon
louild in those buildings fourteen leaves
of tills old epistle manuscript. Some
yours later othor leaves were found,
numoly; two in tho Synodioal Library
lit Moscow; four in the possession of
M.liupPorflriandoftheAbbotAntonius,
of Klow; two In the University Library
nt Turin) nlno in the library of the
U iwra ulolstor on Mount Athos. In this
Way thirty-one leaves of this manu-
si.ript had been rediscovered, but scattered ovor all Europe. To these Omont
h vd added ten more, one of which was
found'in the Rumjanzen Museum at
Moscow, and nine in the collection
which tho French specialist in Greek
literature, Emmanuel Miller, had found
In an Athos cloister, and had been secured by the National Library in Paris.
Of these nine loavos, however, two had
lu the beginning of this century in some
.v..}- or other found their way to St.
Vtersburg, where also one of the leaves
if tho nine originally belonging to
tishop Porflrl was rediscovered; and of
he nibo leaves whioh Duchesne in 1875
mind in the cloister Lawra, one is now
n Purls.
Accordingly, the forty-one leaves of
bis sixth-century manuscript are found
mattered In no fewer than eight 11-
-i-arloa, namely, twenty-two in the Na-
lonal Library uf Paris, oight in the
.awra cloistor on Mount Athos, two in
ho Synodioal Library at Mosoow, one
n tho Ruinjiitizon Museum at Moscow,
brae in tlie Imperial Library at St
'otersburg, throe In the Academy of
Clew and two in the university at
.'urin. And yet these leaves contain
inly about one-tenth of all, the
plstles, namely, 234 verses, divided as
ollows: 10 from I. Corinthians, 43 from
I. Corinthians, 28 from Galatians, 39
rom Colossians, IS from I, Thessa-
jnlnns, 44 from Hebrews, 40 from 1.
Imotby, 1* from II. Timothy and 13
■om Titus.
By a similar process Prof, de Goije, ot
oydon, has succeeded in rediscovering
io works of Tabari, who for Arabic his-
rlography Is what Thucydldea is for
10 Greek and Llvy for tho Latin. His
istory was supposed to havo been lost,
Ith the exception of a few fragments.
Goije, through correspondence with
irly all tbo libraries of Europe and
any In the Moslem lands, has been
tie to gather together again all  the
Tts and portions of this standard work,
- whioh tho  library of  the  leading
osque in Tunis furnished the chief
mtribution.    Literary coadjutors aro
work in dozens of libraries copying
Id collating the fragments, and it is
Ippoaod that live years will elapse be-
[re the whole of this valuable work

tallat—Harper's Weekly.

These singers have a world-wide reputation, and so well are they known and
highly appreciated that wherever they
go immense audiences greet them. The
ranks of the company are recruited from
the Fisk Uuiversity, Tennessee, and the
profits from the concerts go to maintain
that institution. Sweeter singers than
will be found in this company are rare,
and if tbe people of Westminster are
desirous of enjoying a real musical treat
they should attend one or both of the
coming concerts. The jubilee singers

Hallway Collision.
There was a serious collision on tbe
C. P. R. line on Front street yesterday
afternoon, opposite the Canadian Pacific Navigation Co.'b wharf. The section gang's lorry was returning to quarters for the night at a high rate of speed,
two miles per hour, and wns just about
to pass the entrance to the wharf when
one of Dickinson's teams drove out of
the gate, and then the crash followed.
Tlie railway carriage crushed into the
heavy wagon, with great force, but without doing nny injury. Tlie lorry, however, was completely wrecked and so
badly damaged generally that there is
little chance of its ever being made fit
for uso again. This is one of tlie first
instances on record in which a. common
road wagon has successfully withstood a
collision with u railway carriage.

The Steamboat Deal.
Yesterday morning the negotiations
which have been in progress for several
weeks between the C. P. N. Co. and
Messrs. Turner, Beeton A Co. in regard
to the transfer of the steamers Amelia
and Rainbow to the former corporation,
were finally completed, and the two
boats passed into the hands of the C. P.
N. Co., which now has a monopoly of
the Mainland-Island business. The
amount of money moving in the transaction is not made public, but it is
said to have been in the neighborhood
of $25,000. Capt. John Irving, manager
of the C. P. N. Co., is at present at Ottawa, and in his absence the officials
left in charge decline to say anything in
regard to the service for which the newly acquired boats are intended. A shrewd
guesB, and the one generally accepted
as correct in marine circles, however, is
that the Amelia will be placed on the
Nariaimo-Vancouver route, and the
Rainbow be reduced to the class and
work of the Maude.—»$'«nday}s Colonist,

his intention to ask tlie Government
why was John Wiggins, of New Westminster, lately employed in the British
Columbia Penitentiary, dismissed, and
what amount Is still due him for services rendered. The Hon. Senator will

River washing away large areas of valuable land at Sumns and Chilliwack, and
doing serious injury to navigation. 2nd.

The Civic Pasture.
There were only three cows iu the
civic pasture surrounding tho City Hall
this morning, and naturally the enclosure presented a rather deserted appearance. Tbe grass is far from luxuriant,
aud shoots up slowly, aud this probably
accounts for the small number of animals pastured there. However, the
officials are hoping the verdure will
grow and flourish luxuriantly under the
influence of the warm rains of the Inst
few days, and that the old number,
twenty-one, will soon be quartered on
the grounds. It iB well known that
strangers were powerfuly impressed last
summer with tho richness of our civic
pasture, and the number of fine stock
grazing ou it, so it will not be in the
interests of the City to retrograde in
this matter. A strong effort must be
made to maintain the nigh standard of
the past—any falling off in this line will
be an evidence tbat the Royal City is
falling into decay.

The Park   Improvements.
Tbe Park Committee has taken a firm
grip on the duties it has been selected
to perform. At the meeting of the City
Council last night a motion wns passed
accepting the tender of Wilson, Matin*,
son A Co. for erecting tbe additions to
the Exhibition Building, the contract
price being $3,487. This will be good
news, ns tlie citizens may now rest assured that the buildings will be complete
reasonably sooner than they arc required. The contract for the fence, also,
has been let, and tlie unsightly affair
now enclosing the park will soon be
knocked to pieces aud carted off. Tlie
caretaker's cottage, a neat little affair,
with a large hot house attached, is also
to be erected, and Mr. Peter Latham
has been appointed caretaker, A better
selection than Mr. Latham for this duty
could not have been made, and it may
be expected that at an early date tlie
paik, as well as other public squares,
will be greatly beautified under his
care. Tbe park committee lias done
well iu thus promptly attending to the
duties devolving on it, and its action iu
those matters will be heartily commended hy all progressive citizens.
PERSONAL.
Death of Mr. Iiuo Johns.
Mr. Isaac Johns, of the Inland Revenue Department, died on Sunday afternoon at his residence on Oppenlieimer
street, Mr. Johns was one of the oldest
residents of the Province, having come
here in 1862. He waB born in 1838 in
Wales where his father was a
farmer. He received uu excellent edu>
cation, and at one time intended study
ing law, but the long term of years required for the profession in the Mother
Und deterred him. In 1862 be left the
Old Country for British Columbia, coming by way of Panama. He first went
to Nanaimo, but decided not to remain
there. He accordingly went to Cariboo
where he experienced all the trials and
dangers of a miner's life. His success
iu the mining region, however, was not
all that he could fiiivo desired, and be
returned to tbo Coast. In 1876 lie was
appointed Ntib-Collcctorof Customs, and
bold that' position (ill his death. He
bus been slaiioncil al Vancouver since
it litis been in existence, having bad
charge of tbo offlco hero for some time.
Mr. Johns was a genial and estimable
gentleman, and his death is greatly regretted by bin large circle of friends.—
News-Advertiser.
Tho deceased lived in Westminster for
a time, nnd engaged in mercantile pursuits. He was thoroughly well liked
and Ida sudden death is a surprise and
sorrow to his numerous old time friends.

Mr. A. McKenzie, of Toronto, has
arrived in the city and will reside here
permanently. He is a decided acquisition for many reasons. As an oarsman
he has won many laurels, and as a lacrosse player he is one of the best iu
Canada, having been goal-keeper for the
Toronto club for several seasons. The
presence of Mr. McKenzie will greatly
strengthen the Westminster club.
Mr. F. L. Fowke, of Osbawa, Out.,

married at Vancouver on Friday last to
Dr. Farwell of Seattle, (late of Osbawa.)
Mr. Fowke is one of the most prominent
aud successful business men of Osbawa,
an Alderman of that town, and a member of tho Toronto Board of Trade, and
his opinions us to the respective merits
of different cities nre therefore worth
something. It may be stated, iu passing, that be wus very favorably impress

( From Our Own Correspondent.)
Tbe engine and boiler for Mr. George
Buchart'B brickyard arrived via the C.
P. Railway, and was safely delivered in
his yard across the bay during the past
week. A number of Chinamen, also,
arrived from Vancouver to work in the
yard, and in a short time we hope to
see good bricks turned out.
Parker's old chute Is being extens-
slvely used for ties for the C.P. Railway,
and pies and saw logs for the Ross-McLaren saw mill.
There has beeu considerable inquiry
for property here and, among other
transactions that have taken place during tho past few weeks, Mr. Lundbom
sold bis entire interest in Port Moody
to Mr. Keith, manager of the Bank of
British Columbia in Vancouver,
and nt once decided lo return to

exntvsiied by the residents of this place
at uis sudilcn departure.

Tbe local train is now regularly stopping at the Queen street station, ami

Hib Worship said that during his absence from the city a report from a medical board condemning tlie old hospital
buildings, had been presented to the
Council. Tbe report bad been adopted
but he understood Mr, Herring had not
been notified of the action intended in
the matter. He thought Mr. Herring
should be immediately notified.
Aid. Shiles and Aid. McPhadon said
tbey could not understand the report of
the medical board as it was worded.
The report was read again.
His worship said that it was rather an
idiguifled position to place the Council in to order a board to report on a
matter at a cost of $75 and then take no
further action on it.
Aid. Batchelor said it would be inconsiderate to burn the buildings now that
they were nearly completed.
Aid. Johnson said any man who will
convert an old hospital, in which all
sorts of disease has been( into tenement
bouses, deserved no consideration at the
bands of tbe Council or the citizens.
On motion it was decided to send Mr,
Herring a copy of the report.
Further time was granted ou the Fire
Limit by-law, and Electric Construction
by-law.
Aid. Hoy, in reply to Aid. Batchelor,
said all the streets were now under construction for which the Council had the
money to Improve.
His Worship said the Board of Works
were preparing plans for a large number
of streets, aud the day the Bonus bylaw was passed tenders would be called
for tbe immediate improvement of half
a dozen streets,
