PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.
Mr. CuiHilngliam'N Motion re Fraser
Klver Navigation in Warmly Supported by the Premier, and by Many
Other Honorable Members, and Carrie*
Unanimously—Racy Discussion nn the
Estimate! and a Variety nf Topics.
I From  Our Own Correspondent.)
Friday, Marcli 21
Mr, Cunningham moved, seconded by
Hon. Mr. Robson, the following resolu
tion:
Whereas the development of the him
beting, fanning, and fishing industries
prosecuted on tbe banks of the Fraser
River, nnd in the adjoining country.
has resulted in a large increase of the
export trade of this Province; and
whereas the constantly increasing investment of capital in these industries
tends still further in the same direction;
and whereas hitherto much difficulty
lias beeu experienced iu inducing vessels to accept charters involving the
navigation of the Fraser Rivor, owing
to the inaccuracy of all charts thereof
heretofore published, the inadequate
supply of buoys for marking the channels, and tbo absence of a light-vessel
on the SimdheadH to indicate the entrance to said channels (tbe existing
light-house being now—owing to the
shifting of the channel from natural
causes—some two miles from the real
channel);
Be it therefore resolved, that an humble
address be presented to His Honor the
Lieutenant-Governor praying:
1. That he wilt urge upon the Dominion Government the immediate necessity of causing a re-survey of the channel of the Fraser River to be made, with
a view to the issue, at an early date, of
a new chart of that portion of the river
extending from the entrance thereto at
the Sanuheada to a point six miles
above the corporate limits of the City of
New Westminster, aud suggesting that
if such survey could be made under the
supervision of the officers of Her
Majesty's ships stationed in the*;
waters, the value of such chart woutfffle
greatly enhanced;
2, That His Honor will also urge upon
the Dominion Government the necessity of placing nt the entrance of the
said channel, at the Sundheuds, a
light-ship (which can be moored as the
channel shifts), furnished with crew
and appliances sufficient to ensure the
proper placing and replacing when
necessary of buoys, and to attend to
conservancy in generulf
S. That bis Honor will further urge
upon the Dominion Government the
absolute und pressing necessity of immediately providing aud keeping in re-
servo a supply of buoys sufficient to re-
i tuat may lie from time to

place those t
time carried away.
Tho mover said ho wished to refer to
what might be called the completion of
the improvements of tbo Lower Fraser.
This was a question of the deepest importance to the inhabitants of thut
region. Trade wus going forward iu
that direction with giant strides,
but unfortunately, ever since Confederation, the Lower Eraser had boon sadly
neglected. It has nevor received that
attention which it deserves. The Board
of Trade and citizens of Westminster,
alone and almost unaided, had worked
hard to make the Frusor River as much
as possible navigable for all classes of
vessels. The Columbia River hud received.a great deal of attention front the
peoplo of Washington and great sums of
money had beeu spent upon it. After
Confederation tbo Fraser seems to have
been forgotten. The president of aiio of
tho large timbering industries ut Westminster went to San Francisco last year
to charter ships to come and take away
lumber from the Frusor, but he was
asked " Where is your chart of the
river?" and ho could say nothing. There
litis been no chart issued of that channel
since 18GG. They bad the lumber und
they could get the ships, but they had
no chart, therefore the trade of tbe
country was terribly impeded. Westminister district was totally unrepresented at Ottawa this year, so that the
interests of the country were very apt
to fluifer. Mr,. Cunningham read voluminous extracts from u written schedule
of statistics regarding the depth of water
on the bar of tho Fraser River, He also
read a communication from the Royal
City Planing Mills Company regarding
the difficulty expeilenced by them iu
inducing ships to come aud take their
lumber. Continuing, Mr, Cunningham
said: What is wanted is a lightship, a
little larger than that ut present doing
duty of a useless nature two miles from
tho entrance of the river. Buoys wore
also wanted in larger quantity and hotter
placed than they wore now. To-day
thero is not an extra buoy in tho Province to put down at the mouth of tbe
river if required.
Hon, Mr, Robson complimented tbe
honorable mover ou his forcible und
comprehensive address. The Industries
of tne Lower Fruser bad. assumed
groat magnitude aud tbey should receive recognition und ussistunco from
the Provincial Government. The resources of thut magnificent water-way
wore being developed to au amazing extent. The history of the Sundheuds of
tho Frusor was ono which reflected no
credit on the Federal Government.   He
quite astray, as the Dominion was not
likely to have engineers who were accustomed to this kind of survey, while u
naval survey was a vastly different
thing from any other kind, Besides
these ships were equipped with every
appliance for taking such a survey,
wliich was quite in their line of work,
Mr. Cunningham said he had consulted with tbe officers of Her Majesty's
ships in these waters, and they were
quite in accord with the scheme and
willing to do anything to improve, not
only the Fraser River channel, but any
other in the Province.
Resolution carried,
Hon. Mr. Beaven asked tbe Hon,
Minister of Finance a few questions on
tbe financial tables, which he thought
were not accurate. The Minister of Finance said he would look into the matter.
Mr, Cunningham said be bad moved
the adjournment of the debate the preceding day out of consideration for the
Hon, member for Westminster District
(Mr. Ladnor), who was not feeling we'll,
Mr. Ladner—How kind.
Mr. Cunningham said he would like
to compliment the Minister of Finance
ou the very fine speech and statement
be hud made. He quite agreed with
the honorable member who bud said
thut every dollar spent in roads and
bridges was well invested. That wus
one of tbe truest things ever uttered.
He was disappointed with the honorable
gentlemen of tbo Opposition because
they had never suggested any improvements, but ulways criticised and nothing else. On tbe education question ho
would defy any man to show where a
single case of oppression of school
teachers bad occurred in the Province
under this Government. Tho charge
mado against tbe head of tbe education
department was false. What the dis-;
trict wants to day is more roads and'
more bridges through the farming districts, to enable the farmers to get their
Eroducts to market. If money could be
orrowed at a low rate of interest to
build roads and bridges it would be a
boon to the Province and a good investment. He would urge upon this House
that it is absolutely necessary to build
up roads for the protection of agriculture. He could point out a number of
places where money could be profitably
Bpeiit, A canal from Mud Bay to tbe
Eraser Rivor was one of them. A traffic
bridge across the Frnser was another,
aud lie was sorry there wus not enough
revenue in sight to carry out thoso great
projects. He wus sure tho present
Government would do all it reasonably
could to further the interests of agriculture. •
Mr, 1 .miner could not find words to
express his gratitude to the last speaker
for bringing up a subject most interest- i
ing to him. He was as much plensed as
any honorable member of the Houso
with the increase of tbe revenue. But
the present Government hud very little
or nothing to do with the great wave of
prosperity which waB advancing over
the Province. It had started away
down south somewhere and kept coming
north and bad just about struck us. He
said Westminster District was. tbe worst
abused in the whole Province. He
showed the discrepancy existing between
the appropriations for the district und
other districts. Westminster District wus
not getting u fuir shure with the others.
He wanted to know why it was wo bad
to go outside the Province for things we
could raise perfectly well hero. What
wus wanted wus roads and bridges to
open up and develop the country. He
considered the sum appropriated for
Westminster District insufficient considering the requirements. He hoped
when the supplementary estimates came
in they would show a little more generosity toward Westminster District. The
honorable gentleman then read some
more statistics regarding the appropriations, humorously commenting on the
various itoniB, tn the great amusement
of tho House. He thought tbe surveys
to bo mado very necessary, but if the
Government did not intend to build
roads for the settlers (o roach their lands
lie would ndviso tho Government not to
have the surveys mado and not invite
settlers to como in. The soil is there
and the climate, but the land lies waste
for want of roads aud bridges to reach
it.
Mr. Croft made a few remarks ou Mr.
Laduer's statements regarding tho re.
venue. Ho wub sorry to sco that gentleman outer into sectionalism in that way.

would have very grout pleasure in supporting und backing up any movement
towards drawing the attention of the
tion had made a very strong statement
when he said this Government bad
bribed the electors with their own
money. This meant that the electors were not lit to exercisB the franchise. He (the speakor) was a member
of this Government and bad felt keenly
the violent language innde use of bv the
Honorable tbe lender of the Opposition,
but be bud not yet loBt his self-respect.
He had been surprised to hear tbe Honorable leader of the Opposition make
use of language one might almost expect to bear from unfortunates on tbe
street corners. The Honorable gentle-
mnn dwelt with considerable severity on
tbe other remarks made by the Honorable tbe leader of Opposition iu his attack on tbe Government, The nets of
this Government bud been fair and
straightforward, and he would ask the
Honorable member for Victoria City
(Mr. Beaven) to come forward and point
out if be could, one dishonorable act of
theirs.
Mr. Orr said this appeared to be a
kind of Dounybrook debute und every
mail's character and motives seemed to
come in for a hammering from somebody. Ho had been led to understand
that several of the Ministry were heavily interested iu the milling industries of
tbe Province.
Hon. Mr. Hobson.—-Name.
Mr, Orr.—I say I am led to understand,
Hon. Mr. Robson.—Name. Mr. Speaker, 1 rise to it question of privilege and
demand the name implied in that insinuation ) if the honorable member
will not give it, it is a cowardly insinuation.
Mr, Orr.—I said tiefore that I wus led
to-
Hon. Mr. Robson.—Pshaw; if tho
honorable member believes all the stuff
he hears he will have a nice store of
anecdotes.
Mr. Orr, continuing, suid tlie Ministry
hud used their interest in tbe milling
concerns to subvert the interests of the
country. Tbe Government of tbe last
six or seven years had legislated people
out of their houses and homes for the
benefit of a monopoly. He had never
asked for a position from any Government, and he would only say that tbe
Honorable the Premier, in throwing the
slur at him thut he wus a disappointed
office-seeker, waa either suffering from a
lapse of memory or waa stating what he
know to bo totally incorrect. Tbe honorable member for Westminster City
had passed a most glowing oulogium
upon the Government and especially
with regard to the Premier. Well, a
change mid taken place somewhere. He
could remember the time when there
waa nothing black enough or—
Mr. Cunningham—Mr. Speaker, I ask
you to cull the honorable gentleman to
ordor. (Much laughter.)
Mr. Orr, continuing, said the speech
of the honorable member for Westminster City was one of the most fulsome
pieces of toadyism be had ever heard.
Passing ou to railway mutters he said
that although the C. P. R. hud done inestimable good to this Province, they
should not be allowed to govern this
Province as they did the other provinces
of the Dominion.
Mr. Cunningham rose to u question of
privilege and said the last speaker bud
made statements regarding Mb character which he must deny in lota; it was
easy enough to make a statement, but a
different thing to bear it out.
Hon. Mr. Robson said he hud known
tho honorable member for Westminster
City thirty years, and hud always counted him among his warmest friends.
Mr, Haslain made u few remarks on
the stumpngo question and the scaling
of timber. Statements such as hud
been made by several members of tho
Opposition ou this question, in this
House, were very mitleadin^, Thero
was no ground for substantiating such
remarks.
Mr. Orr explained that ho could get
six men iu thin city who bud more experience on this subject than the last
speaker, and who would bear him (Mr,
Orr) out in what he bud said.
Mr. Duel., seconded by Mr. Thompson, moved the adjournment of tbe debate.   Carried.
Mr. Cunningham hoped tho Government would take into its earnest consideration tho advisability of commencing the night sessions an soon us possible.
Hon, Mr. Robson suid .the Government expected to begin night sessions

A 1'aritlan  Myitery.
Pahis, Mar. 24.—Mile. Jeatson, cousin of Saint-Saens, the celebrated composer, who is missing, is bo confident
that there has been foul play of some
kind that she has engaged a prominent
Parisian lawyer and a detective to help
ber lay bare the mysteries of the ease.
This gentleman is undertaking .preliminary enquiries, and has placed the
matter in the hands of the police, In
the course of his enquiries he learned
that the composer's wife is still living,
and that since 1881 she has resided at
Mulhausen, in Alsace. Madame Saint-
Saens was telegraphed to and replied
that she bad no news of her husband,
but would come to Paris at once. Inquiries at the Government asylums in
tlie neighborhood of Paris showed that
Saint-Saens Ib not at the St. Anne asylum.	
The Water Subsiding.
1'iTTsiii/ito, March 24.—Both the Alleghany and Monongabilia rivers are now
subsiding, and the flood now Is merely a
memory of a big scare, Many thousand
dollars have beeu lost in this vicinity,
but these losses were caused by the
stoppage of iron mills along the rivers,
and by tbe entire stoppageof traffic on the
Pittsburg and Western road. Down
town merchants report great Iosb iu
goods stored in cellars, and up river
farmers complain of flooded lauds. The
highest water waB 24 feet 6 inches,
reached last night, in the Monongabilia,
and one foot higher in the Allegheny
River. The river is now 21 feet. Some
of the railroad tracks and mills are still
flooded.    _^^_____1-1-
PROVINCIAL LACROSSE.
It wub too bud that the report should go I next week, but wouUTliko to know what
out to the effect that this country was 1 the Hon. Mr. Heaven had to sny.
Dominion Government to this important matter.
Mr. Orr thought that if a message was
sent the Dominion Government from
this Government some action would he
taken at once. Much bad been done in
tho past to induce the Dominion Government to do something in this matter,
hut unsuccessfully. The Eraser River
wus navigable for vessels of nny size for
fifty miles from the mouth; and a safe
anchorage could bo found anywhere between the mouth and Sumus. He hoped
the Government would urge upon the
Dominion authorities the necessity of
having something done at an early date
towards setting tlio Fraser River difficulty to rights.
Mr. Laduor said that owing to the
lightship being bo far away from the
mouth of the river the navigation of that
stream was most seriously impeded. If
this were represented to the Dominion
Government hi a proper manner no
doubt some action would soon bo taken,
The matter had been sadly neglected
heretofore. He was sorry that the gentleman who represented the district bud
been lying at death's door, as otherwise
he would have boon in his place in the
Dominion House urging this mutter
strongly upon tho Government,
Mr. Croft said the Fraser River was
tlie finest river on tlio Pacific Coast and
much more valuable than tbe Columbia
River, Thero could be no doubt that if
buoys were placed ut tho mouth of tlie
Frnser an enormous lumber trade would
be developed. The lumber mills of thiB
Province have not been working to their
full capacity for some years, This res-
lutlou was one of the most important
that had come before the House this
session.
Mr. Semlin said he was much interested In tbe Fraser River. He thought
a resolution Bhould be so worded and so
planned as to procure the highest and
most useful results. Ho asked tho honorable mover to amend tho resolution
byexpungingnli words afterWestmi lister,
ns he did not think tbe Dominion Government would like to ask Her Mnjesty's
naval officers to do this work. Besides
It looked like a relief tion on the Dominion engineers.
Hon, Mr, Robiou said Mr. Seiullii was
going to tho hud; aa the policy of the
Government had been most clearly
shown to he of quite a contrary nature
to that view. Unless the duty was
taken off mining machinery, this Province would always work ut u great disadvantage.
Mr. Martin said it was far easier to
criticise the Government than come forward nnd suggest something. But the
Opposition never did the latter. There
wus no blame attachable to tbo Government in the alleged failures spoken of
by one of the Opposition. In the matter
of the artesian well boring experiments,
which that gentleman bad numbered ns
one of the Government's signal failures,
there wus not the slightest Marie attributable to them. On tlie subject if the
Chinese he wus sorry he bad nut been
In hia scat when Mr. Cunningham made
that little personal attack on hiiri. He
then produced a copy of Westminster
Truth and read an account oi a very
laughable encounter between a Mr.
Dunn and one of Mr. Cunningham's
Chinese domestics, the details of which
had been curried to the police court.   ■
Mr. Cunningham said that the statement read from Truth wub utterly and
emphatically false; he hud never made
use of such au expression lu his life.
M r. Martin—Oh, como oil'. (1 juigh t er.)
Mr. Cunningham—Never sir, never in
my lifo.   (Continued hilarity).
Mr, Martin—(Hi, thoso Chinese get
away with you every time. (Great
laughter.)
Mr. Smith thought it would be to the
advantage of tho country If the Govern
incut would spend a small sum iu ox
ploring the upper part of the Lillooet
District. He had been requested by
letter from the settlers of Empire Valley
to urge the necessity of having a rond
constructed lu that locality, The need
of roads was one of the most pressing in
tho affairs of British Columbia. It
might not he known, but it waa nevertheless truo that nearly all the reserves
on the Fraser River and Lillooet District coptained rich mining lands. Mr.
Smith gave an Interesting description
of tbe needs of the upper part of the
country and dwelt upon tho necessity of
roads and 'bridges with great emphasis,
Mr. Mason said that quartz in Cariboo
can be worked most successfully. There
are many lodges in Cariboo equally as
rich us that of tho Black Jack Co, The
honorable gentleman drew attention to
tho need of railways in that rich district.
Hon. Mr. Pooley thought the remurks,
of the honorable member for Westminster District, in regard to the estimates I
nud appropriations, came with a very
bad grace. Tho honorable member hud
not Hinted all the facts, holding buck a
most Important pnrt of the appropriation. Mr, Ladner Intended his statements to get iuto the papers ami go before the country und try to show that
this Ministry was not acting fairly with
the country, Westminster gets Die lion's
share of the appropriation on the education quest Ion, $50,000. Itlsstupid attacks
like that which mnke u Government
invulnerable, and those who mnke them
sliuw too plainly that tbey ure not capable of occupying any higher position
than thoy ure, 'I hey have not the ability to forma ministry nud conduct it
successfully; tbe people will not trust

THE FKItllY QUESTION.
Eiirron CoLUMUfAK—A'.r—Being
rancher iu Surrey and having several
business transactions in the city during
tho past two wcoks, I was much Bur-;
prised and annoyed on every occasion \
ny the manner the ferry service Is conducted on tho river here.
On arriving at Brownsville about 7.
1). m. I was informed that the ferry boat
uid made the last trip from thero thut
night and that she would not make
another trip across until about nine o'clock next morning.
As this mad) me incur considerable
expense I would' ask, "Mr. Editor,"
through the columns of your valuable
paper, who is to blame for this mismanagement? Is it the City Council or tho
party who runs tho ferry boat?
I understand, according to rules laid
down by tho Council, that tho forry was
to run between the hours of 7 a. m. aud
8 p. m. I have learned that there aro
several othor business mon who have
the same evil to contend with, so I truat
you will not fail in drawing the attention of the City Council to thiB matter,
for by doing so you will grontly oblige

Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla.
Itlfiutliig nf Delegate* of the Senior La-
ttro.He Clubn—A Provincial Aatool-
ntlnii Formed--lliileH Adopted.
On Saturday afternoon the delegates
from the three senior lacrosse clubs
—Victoria, Vancouver and Westminster
—met in the parlors of the Windsor
Hotel, Vancouver, pursuant to tbe request of the latter club that a Provincial
association be formed, with the object
of thoroughly establishing and governing the game in this Province.
Each club was allowed three delegates, and tho representative men were
W. II. Culliii. CluiB. Loekhnrt and W.
G. Mackenzie, of Victoria; Jas, Leamy,
John C. Whyte and OhaB. C. Steuart,
of Westminster; A. E. Suckling, W. S.
Taylor and II. Quigley, of Vancouver.
After a short discussion it wus deemed
desirable that such an association should
exist, and a motion was unanimously
passed thut the delegates assembled
form themselves into an association to
be known as "Tho British Columbia
Amateur Lacrosse Association."
The following officers were then elected by ballot: lion. President—D. Op-
penheimor, of Vancouver; President—
Jus. Leamy, of New Westminster; 1st
Vice-President—A. E. Suckling, of Vancouver; 2nd Vico-PreBident — W. G.
Mackenzie, of Victoria. Executive Committee—Victoria, C. Lockhart; Vancouver, W. T. Taylor and H. Quigley; Westminster, J. C. Whyte and L. A. Lewis.
Aftor this business was concluded the
work of adopt ing a constitution and bylaws wub tnkcii up, and what Is hoped
to bo a just aud thoroughly governing
set of rules were compiled una ordered
to be printed. These rules will be iu
tho bunds of the players very shortly,
and the delegates were asked to impress
upon their individual clubs the necessity, for tho general good of the national
game, thut they be conformed to by the
players und enforced by tho officers governing a match. One clause was inserted which provides against the further
import of players from other parts and
compels evory player taking part In a
match to be a resident of the Province
for ut least 21 days previous,.
The club membership fee was placed
at 110, each club being allowed a senior
and junior team.
The association instructed the secretary to order a beautiful banner to re-
Kresent the championship trophy of
ritit.li Columbia. A junior trophy will
probably be prc8enMp*~"
The secretary wal
Inform the Torontosl
sirablo to play thra
picked Provincial tel
British Columbia vs. Toronto, one tn
each of the three towns; and that a substantial guarantee of not less than $450
would be offered them for same.
These association matches must tako
precedence in date to any matches arranged by the Torontos with individual
clubs.
The manner iu which the championship would be decided waa discussed,
when it was agreed to play a fixed schedule of six matches, and the club winning the greatest number of matches in
tho season to bo awarded the pennant
und championship for one year.
Tho following schedule waB then
adopted:
May 24—At Victoria—Victoria vb.
Vancouver.
June 14 — At Westminster — Westminster vs. Victoria.
July 12—At Vancouver—Vancouver
vs. Westminster,
August 11—At Victoria—Victoria vs.
Westminster,
Sept. 0—At Vancouver—Vancouver
vs. Victoria.
Oct. 4—At Westminster— Westminster vs. Vancouver.
It wus decided that if both clubs wero
mutually agreed the above given date
of nny match might lie changed by the
council of tlio association it sufficient
notice bo given.
This concluded tho work of the meeting and the association adjourned to
meet ut the cull of the president.
The Westminster delegates were thoroughly pleased with tlie hospitality
shown thorn by the resident representatives, and tho good feeling displayed by
all while in session argues well for the
future advancement of lacrosse as a
popular game in British Columbia. JLIXJCi    JL#__LJL__I JL     L>\/liU-Ui>lAn,     lllim        H __.„*.-H-i'~'-

THE FERRY QUESTION.
Complaints about the ferry service between this city and the southern side of
the river are the rule, instead of the exception, und the communication which
we print to-day on the subject merely
echoes tho sentiments of all who are directly concerned in having a convenient
and proper means of inter-communication between this city and the district
south of the river.
Our correspondent, "Surrey Rancher,
bus a specific complaint to make. He
autes thut, "on arriving nt Brownsvilc
" about 7 p. m.," he was informed "that
" the ferry boat hud made the last trip
"from there that night, and that she
" would not make another trip across
" until about 0 o'clock next morning.
" About 7 p.m.," us used by our correspondent, Is a little vague. If it could
be stretched to mean twenty minutes or
half un hour later, the ferry would be
about within its rights in that instance.
By the contract with tlie city, the ferry
boat is bound to make a round trip
every hour, on week days, commencing
at 0 a.m. und ending at 8 p.m., und we
should Bay it wns the bussness of the
Council to see that the contract was
complied with.
The whole ferry business, it must be
said, is in an interim and unsatisfactory
condition. But the City Council cannot
bo blamed for this. It Ib directly owing
to the Southern Railway Company,
which by its agreement with the City is
to assume the ferry, or undertake the
construction of a bridge immediately,
not having yet reached a decision in
the matter. Great bodies move
slowly, as everyone knows, but
it is earnestly to he hoped
that the Southern Railway Company
will "got there" very shortly, and terminate the present unsatisfactory and
damaging suspense with respect to ferry
matters and establish a much better
service than tlie present a]wlogy, without
delay. In tho event of the Company
deciding to commence bridge construction at once, a temporary ferry, to give
give some sort of satisfaction, will, of
course, have to bo put on. In cuse it is
decided not to build the bridge immediately, u permanent railway and traffic
ferry must be put on and maintained by
tbe Southern Railway Company in lieu
of a bridge. In the meantime, the City
Council, it will bo seen, is rather hampered iu the matter, but how long It
will be justified in waiting on the Railway Company is a fine question, which
might bo variously answered. There
will certainly be "tall," general and
justifiable "kicking" on this ferry business, if there should be much more delay
in arriving at a final and satisfactory
settlement.
MARRIAGE QUESTIONS,
At the last meeting of the Osgoode Lit-
eruy and Legal Society, says tbe Mail,
the subject debated was tho well-known
judgment of the English court of Chancery in re Bethell, declaring invalid hi
England a marriage between Christopher Bethell and a South African woman named Tcopoo, a daughter of the
Barolong chief Mortsioa. Tho marriage had beeu solemnized in accordance
with tho customs of tho Barolougs, who
are polygamous, that is to say, Mr. Bethell had taken the woman us his wife
in tho sumo manner as any member of
the tribe would have takon her, with the
understanding that the union was to be
no more permanent or exclusive of subsequent marriages during the life time
of tho parties than if both of the hitter
wore Barolougs. This being the case
tho court held that the marriage could
not be recognized in Englgnd, inasmuch
ns the law of that country forbids polygamy. A cuse similar iu some respects
to this, but having a very different termination, came before the Probate nnd
Divorce Court recently. Captain Fran
cis Briuktey, who had in 1880 married a
Japanese lady named Yiibu Tanka in
Jupun, according to the marriage formalities of that country, petitioned the
court for u declaration of the validity of
the union, and his application wns grunted. The evidence, which was given by
affidavit, did not disclose tbe nature of
tho marriage formalities, but u copy of
the cortlflcute, signed by the Governor
aud the Kecretary of the province in
Which the oewmony took place, wus
produced, An.BngJish barrister prac-
tiaing in Japan also gave evidence that
the marriage was contracted ut n Japanese registry office. Upon little more
evidence than this Mr, Justice Butt un
' hesitatingly declared the union to bo
valid in England as well as Japan. His
ground for so doing evidently was that,
the Japanese being strictly monogamous
and tlio ceremony having been performed In accordance with Japan*
law, there wus no good reason why the
contract should not be recognized in
England. It is a well-known principle
of English law that marriages contracted in a foreign country aro binding in
England, if solemnized according to the
laws of the former. Were this otherwise many indictments for bigamy would
fall to the ground. It seems, however,
that tho courts will not apply the principle to marriages contracted in polygamous countries with women of those
countries, Inasmuch as one of tho conditions of tbe marriage contract in such
cases is directly contrary to English law,
The two judgments cited are interesting
because they show clearly tho distinction that Ib drawn.
While on tlio marriage question It will
be interesting to note that a bill has
been introduced iuto the Dominion Parliament at the present session which
seeks to extend the sanction of the law,
allowing marriage with a "deceased
wife's sister," to a "deceased wife's sis-
ter'sdaughter."   The bill, which is brief
and to the point, is as follows: "Where-
" as by an act passed in the forty-fifth
" year of Her Majesty's reign, chapter
" forty-two, intituled, 'An Act concern-
" 'ing Marriage with a Deceased Wife's
" 'Sister,' all laws prohibiting marriage
" between  a man and his deceased
" wife's sister were repealed; and where-
" as it is desirable likewise to remove
" all piohibitiou against marriage be-
!' tween a man and his deceased wife's
" sister's daughter: therefore Her Majesty by and with the advice and consent of
the Senate and House of Commons of
Canada, enacts aa follows:   (1)  All
laws prohibiting marriage between n
man and the daughter of hiB deceased
wife's sister are hereby repealed both
us to past and future marriages, and as
" regards past marriages, as   if such
laws had never existed.   (2) This net
shall not affect, in any manner, any
case decided by or pending before any
court of justice; nor shall it affect any
rights actually acquired by the issue
of the first marriage previous to the
pussing of this act, nor shall  this act
affect any such marriage when either
of the parties has  afterwards, during
the life of the other, lawfully intermarried with any other person."

In a startling paper to the Vienna
Academy of Sciences, Thoedore Gross

believing, for reasons soon to be given,
that it is a compound of carbon with
some other as yet undetermined elementary substance.
Renewed effortB have lately been
made to acclimatize the reindeer in
Germany for various purposes. At considerably expense, a herd was taken
last spring to the Molkenhaus, but the
heat of the summer was too great for the
animals, and the entire stock seems to
havo perished.
Ax AciD-PnooF Mktal.—A chemist of
Brockenheim, Germany, has discovered
a new alloy, which is said to resist the
attack of most acid and alkaline solutions. It contains 15 parts of copper,
2.34 parts of tin, 1.82 parts of lead, and
1 part of antimony. It Ib claimed that
the alloy is much better than ebonite,
vulcanite or porcelain for vessels or
fittings liable to he acted upon by
chemicals.
A New Voltaic Batteey.—A novel
form of voltaic battery is made by an
Italian inventor in this simple manner:
A conical cast-iron bowl, partly filled
with strong nitric acid, is fixed in a
stand, and in it is placed a similar bowl
of porous earthenware partly filled with
dilute sulphuric acid. Then follows a
second irou cone with u second earthenware one, and so ou in a series, eacli
vessel containing its respective acid.
By this arrangement, the inner surface
of each iron vessel iB exposed to nitric
acid, and becomes passive, acting the
part of tho platinum or carbon of the
ordinary cell; while the outer surface
is attacked by the dilute sulphuric ucid,
and takes the place of zinc. No connections are nccessury. A pile of thirty or
forty of these elements gives n strong
current, which diminishes to about one
half in live hours.
PaomniTioN of Hypnotism.—Among
the most remarkable of tbe phenomena
of hypnotism is the power of the operator to impress the subject to perform au
action at some future time—hours or
days after emerging from the hypnotic
state. Tho ability of a person thus to
compel an innocent agent to commit
crime, according to Dr. J. T. O'Connor,
has aroused the serious attention of
physicians and jurists alike, while the
danger of producing a wide spread con
ditiou of nervous disease as a result of
public demonstrations of "mesmerism'1
is emphasized by all writers on the subject. In different European countries
medical and legal societies have petitioned the authorities to prohibit all
public exhibitions of "mesmerism" by
any person .whatsoever, and to restrict
the use of hypnotism to physicians with
special skill in nervous diseases.
Figures Regaining Flight.—Among
recent investigations which go to encourage believers in future flying machines, are those proving thut greatly
exaggerated ideas of the force exerted
by birds have beeu held, and that large
birds have wings proportionately much
smaller than those of small flying creatures. Certain insects flutter enormously large wings at the rate of 2000 or 3000
vibrations per second, while the pelican
flaps its relatively iusignificunt area of
wing surface only once per second,
The vulture is 100 times as large as the
swallow, but its wings ure only 15 times
us large; and tho Australian crane
weighs 3,000,000 times as much as the
gnat, while tho latter bus 150 times as
much wing surface jier unit of weight,
The eugle in full flight instead of using
IS horse-power ns wus formorly computed, exerts only n fraction of 1 horse power, A pigeon living 2200 feet per minute
(nearly 25 miles an hour) exerts 1-200th
of a horse power per pound, equal to UK
horse power for a flying machine weighing one ton at 25 miles an hour, or 50
horso power per ton weight at 50 miles
an hour. That mechanical science will
be equal to adjusting these figures to
the requirements of air travelling, declares Dr. Andrew Wilson, seems only n
reasonable deduction from facts ns they
stand.       __—«—_____
Tho money which parents accumulate
by hard work and self-denial is frequently squandered by their children, but few
mortgage a future Inheritance so recklessly us has a son of Victor Hugo. The
gi eat Frenchman of letters, starting in
life with a capital of 800 francs, which
he earned for himself, besides gaining
an immortal pluce in literature, amassed
a fortune of several million francs,
which he left to his children, His son
George has recently become of age, and
before he hud taken possession of his
fortune his notes were presented against
the estate for $48,000, upon which he
hod borrowed only $1(1,000. But there
is a law in Franco against usury and the
greedy usurers have been arrested and
the full penalty of the law will be meted
out to them for attempting to rob a
minor of his heritage, If young Hugo's
fortune is not kept under ihe control of
a guardian it is more than probable that
in a few years he will be a penniless
vagabond in the city that will forever
honor the name aud memory of his
great father.—Ex.
A Biff  Scheme.
Reeve Sexsmith, of Richmond muni-.
cipality, ia iu tlie city for the purpose of
interviewing the Government and members of the Legislature in reference to a
scheme he has on hand for running an
electric railway from a point at or near
the boundary of Vancouver, thence
southerly along or adjacent to the North
Arm road to a point near the Fraser
river, thence westerly along the north
shore of the Fraser river to the Seo Island bridge,thence across the bridge and
continuing across Sea Island and the
bridge connecting Sea aud Lulu Islands,
thence south to the south Bide of Lulu
Island, then to connect with a ferry to
Laduer's Landing. A branch will also
run from Sea Maud bridge along the
Granville street road to Vancouver. Tlie
line would be about thirteen miles in
length and would cost in the neighborhood of $150,000 to construct. The power
bouse would be built near the centre.
The idea is to establish a ferry from the
southern end of the Hue to Laduer's,
the ferry to make a trip to different
landings along the Delta district, bringing the produce and traffic of that rich
section into Vancouver.—Colonist.

A CHANGE OF BASE.
The Deaoon Concludes' That the
Beautiful Ia Also Useful
Deaoon Tilden had the squavest, neat*
est white houso that ever showed its
keen angles from the dusky elumps of
old lilao hushes. In front of it atood,
on each side of tho doorway, two thrifty
cherry treos, whioh horo a bushel each
every season. Excepting the afore*
mentioned lilao trees, there was not a
flower or shrub around the plaee. Rose
bushes the deacon thought rotted tho
house, and tho honeysuckle whioh his
wife tried to train over the poroh was
torn down when tbe painters came, and
on the whole tbo deacon said what was
the use of putting it up as long as it did
not bear any thing?
By the side of tho house was a thrifty,
well-kept garden, with plenty of currant bushes, gooseberry bushes and
quinoo trees—and the beets &nd carrots
and onions wore tho pride of tho
deacon's heart; but, as ho often proudly
said, "every thing was for use"—there
was nothing fancy about it. His wifo
put In timorously ono season for a
flower-border—Mrs. Jenkins had given
her a petunia and. Mrs. Simpkins
had brought her a package ' of
flower seeds from New York—
and so a bed was laid out. But
tbe thrifty deaoon soon found that tho
weeding of it took time that Mrs.
Tilden might give to her dairy, or to
making shirts and knitting stockings,
and bo It really troubled his conscience.
The next spring he turned it into his
cornfield, and when his wifo mildly
intimated her disappointment, said,
placidly: "After all, 'twas a thing of no
use, and took time"—and Mrs. Tilden,
being a meek woman, and ono of the
kind of saints who always suppose
themselves miserable sinners, specially
confessed her sin of being inwardly
vexed about tho incident in her prayers
that night, and prayed that her eyes
might be turned oft from beholding
vanity, and that she might he quickened in the way of minding her work.
The front parlor of tho deacon's bouse
was tbe moft frigid asylum of neatness
that ever discouraged the eye of a visitor. The four blank walls wore guiltless of any engraving or painting, or
of any adornment but an ordinary wall
paper and a framed oopy of tho declaration of independence—on oaoh ot tbe
throe sides stood four chairs—under tho
looking-glass was a shining mahogany
table, with a largo Bible and an almanac
on it—and a pair of cold, glistening brass
andirons Illustrated the placo. Tho
mantel-shelf above had a pair of bright
brass candlesticks with a pair of snuffers botween, and that was all. The deacon liked It—It was plain and simple—no
nonsense about it—every thing for use
and nothing for show—it nutted him. His
wife somotlmoB sighed and looked round
It when sho was Hewing as if sho wanted
something, and then sung in the good
old psalm:
•' From vanity turn off mine oyes;
Let no corrupt design
Or covetous desires urlse
Within this hoart of mmo.'*,
The corrupt design to whioh this estimable matron had been tempted had
been tho purchaso of Parian flower vases,
whose beauty bad struck to hor heart
when sho went with her butter and eggs
to the neighboring city—but recollect*
Ing herself in timo she had resolutely
ahut her eyes to the allurement and
spent the money usefully in buying loaf
sugar.
For it Is to bo remarked that tho deacon was fond of good eating and prided
himself on tho bounties of bis wife's
table. Pew women know bettor how to
sot one—and the snowy bread, golden
butter, clear preserves and jellies wore
themes of admiration at all tbo tea-
tables in tho land. The deacon didn't
mind a few cents in a pound more for a
nicer ham, and would now and then
bring in a treat of oysters from the city
when thoy were dearest. Thoso wore
comforts, he said, and ono must stretch !
! a point for the comforts ot life.
Thodoacon must not be mistaken for
a tyrannical man or a had husband.
When he quietly put his wife's .lower-
patch into bis corn-field ho thought ho
had done her a service by curing her
of an absurd notion for things that took
time and made trouble and were of no
use. And sho, dear soul, never had
breathed a dissent to any course of his
loud enough to let Mm know she bad
one. Ho laughed in hia sleevos often
whon ho saw her tranquilly knitting or
shirt-making at those times sho had
been wont to givo to her poor little contraband pleasures. As for tho flower
vases, they wero repented of—and Mrs.
; Tilden put a handful of spring anemones
Into a cracked pitcher and set it on
hor kitchen table, till tho deacon tossed
them out of the window—ho "couldn't
, bear to soo weeds growing round."
The poor little woman had a kind of
j chronic heart sickness, like the pining
ot a teething child; but sho novor know
exactly what it was she wanted. If sho
ever was sick, no man oould ho kinder
than tho deacon. He had boon known
to harness in all haste and rush to tho
neighboring town at four o'clock in tho
I morning that ho might bring her somo
delicacy Bhe had a fancy for that he
oould see the uso ot. He could not
sympathiie In her craving desire to see
Powor's Greek Slave, whioh was exhibiting in a neighboring town. "What
did Christian peoplo want of stun
Images?" he wanted to know. Ho
thought the Scriptures put that thing
down—"Eyos havo tbey, but thoy hro
not — oars have they, hut they hoar
not—neither spook they through thoir
throat. They that make them aro like
unto them; so Is every ono that trustoth
in them." Thero was tho deacon's opinion of the arts, and Mrs. Deaeon only
liilghed, and wished she oould see It, that
|waa all.
But it camo to pass that the deacon's
oldest son wont to live In New York,
and from that timo strange changed began to appear in the family that tho
deacon didn't liko; but as Jo thro was a
smart, driving lad, and making monoy
at a great pace, he at first said nothing
But on his mother's birthday down ho
oamo and brought a box for hli mother,
which, being unpacked, contained a
' Parian statuette of Paul and Virginia—
a lovely,simple little group as over held
Its story in clay.
Bvery body was soon standing round
it in open-mouthed admiration, and poor:
Mrs. Tilden wiped her eyes more than
onoe as she looked on it. It seemed a
vision of hoiuty in the dosolateneatness
of the best room.
"Very pretty, I s'pose," laid tho|
deaoon, doubtfully—for like most fathers of sulfited twonty-throo-oldors, he
began to feel a little awe of his son—
"but, dear me, what a sight of money to
givo for a thing that after all is of no
use."
"I think," said Jethro, looking at his
mother's suffused eyes, "it is one of the
most useful things thathas been brought
into the house this many a day."
"X don't see how you're going to make
it out," said tho deaean, looking apprehensively at the young Wisdom that had
risen in his household.
■ "What will you wager me, father.
that I will prove out of your own mouth
that this statuette ia as useful as your
oart and oxen?"
"1 know you've got a great way of
coming round folks, and twitching them
up before thoy fairly know where they
are; but I'll stan* you on this question,
anyway."
"Well now, father, what Is the use of
your cart and oxen?"
"Why, I could not work the farm
without them, and you'd all have nothing to eat, drink or wear."
"Well, and what Is tho uso of our eating, drinking and wearing?"
"Use? why, we could not keep alive
without it."
"And what is the use of our keeping
alive?"
"Tho use of our keeping alive?"
"Yob, to bo sure; why do we try and
strivo and twist and turn to koep alive,
and what's tho uso of living?"
"Living!—why do wo want to live; we
enjoy living—all creatureB do—dogs and
cats and evory kind of beast. Life is
sweet,"
"Tho uso of living, then, is that we enjoy it?"
"Yob."
"Well, wo all enjoy this statuette, so
that there is the same value to that
there is in living; and if your oxen and
carts and food and clothes, and all that
you call necessary tilings, havo no value
except tho onjoymont, tnen this statuette is a short cut to tho great thing for
which your farm and overy thing elso is
designed. You do not enjoy your cart
for what it is, but because of its uso to
get food and clothes—and food and
clothes we value for tho enjoyment they
give. But a statuette or picture or any
beautiful thing gives enjoyment at once.
We enjoy it tho moment wo boo it—for
itself und not for any use we moan to
make of It. So that strikes tbo great
end of this lifo quicker than any thing
olso, don't it? Hey, father—haven't I
gotmyoase?"
I beliove tho pigs aro getting into
tbo garden," said tho deaoon, rushing
out of tho front door.
But to his wifo ho said beforo going
to bed: "Isn't it amazing the way
Jethro can talk. I could not do it myself, but I had ib in mo tho* if I'd had
his advantages. Jethro is a chip of tho
old block."—Mrs. H. B. Stone, in Farm,
Field and Stockman.
HAD A GOOD  THING.
A Naval Officer's Experience In the !>!■•
trJbutlon ot Patronage.
I beard from aPhiladclphlan a good
story, often told by tho lato Rear-Ad-
miral Emmons of his experience in the
distribution ot patron ago in tlie navy
yards, says tho New York Star Man
About Town. While tlie Admiral,
then a Commodore, was Commandant of
tho Philadelphia Navy Yard, just prior
to au election in that city, the Secretary
of tho Navy ordered tho employment In
the yards of a much larger number of
mon than wero needed for the work in
progress. Ono afternoon the Commodore donned his citizen's dress and
started for a Minnie to transact some
business. Nenr tho entrance to the
yard ho found about threo hundred men
standing around Idle, Surprised at tho
spectacle, ho addressed thorn rather
sharply.
"What are you mon doing bore?"
An able'iodiod young man
forward    and    answered,    prom pily:
"Wo'ro doing nothing,"
"How did you got hi Loro?"
Tho young man pointed to tho main
entrance and replied: "Wo camo in
through that gate."
"That's very strange," tho Commodore continued. "There's a sergeant of marine posted there, with
orders to let nobody pass except officers
and men employed In tho yard."
"OhI we're employed horo," the young
man said. ,
"Then why are you idle during working hours?" tho Commodore asked.
Not at all disconcerted by the Commodore's mannor, tho young man
answered: "Wo'ro not employed to
work; wo'ro hired to vote."
Tho Commodore waB unable to eon*
tain himself longer. Straightening
himself up ho said: "You men probably don't know who I am." And the
young man quickly mado answer:
No, wo don't; who are you, anyhow?"
I am Commodore   Emmons, Commandant of this yard."
At tltis tho young man -laughed, and,
drawing noaror to the Commodore, Bald:
Old man, you've got a good thing; keep
It."
Tho Commodore turned his head that
tho smile on hiB faco might not bo seen,
and wont to hiB bank.
FADS OF SENATORS.
Statesmen Who iirest. Well. Others Who
Are Slouohy and Odd.
Aldrloh, ot Rhode Island, is the handsomest man In tho Senate—rather tall,
trimly built and well proportioned, with
brbwn eyos and gray hair and mustache,
says a writer in the Chicago Times.
Evarts might fairly bo called the homeliest if it wasn't tor the power in his
faco that is almost a sort of beauty in
Itself.
Four Senators are eminently well
drossed—Aldrlch, Blaekburn of Kentucky, Manderson of Nebraska, and
Butler of South Carolina. Many think
that Butler la the handsomest. But as
to dress it Ib a close call among thoso
four.
Tho Blouchlest of the Senators in point
of apparel is Payne, of Ohio. Payne's
clothes simply hang upon him, his nook-
tlo Is a string, or looks llko it, and; his
collar Is always awry.
Quay's great fad is gray; he never
wears any thing else. You might sup-
poso that he always wore tho same suit,
but in reality ho has half a dozen made
at a time, all just alike and gray—the
same shade, too,
Fryo, of Maine, Is never seen without
a carnation in his button-holo. Ho is
tho dude of tho Senate; ho looks younger
than ho Is and drosses younger than ho
looks. HiB hair is parted in tho middle;
ho wears a hang and a gay neoktie, and
although nearly sixty, be Is still a good
deal of a masher.
The lrlih Leader At Home.
Charles Stewart Parnell, when at
home, conforms to local stylo tn dross.
Ills brooches are tied at tho knoe with
ribbon vividly green in hue. Stout,
brown worsted stockings, a little the
worse for wear, cover his shapely limbs,
ending in a pair of broguos that havo
not reoontly boon submitted to tbo
blacking-brush. A waistcoat left unbuttoned displays a bluo cotton shirt; a
high collar, suoh as Mr. Gladstone wears
in holiday time, Is loosely tied with a
kerchiof, green, but not so decidedly
patriotic in tono as the ribbons that
knot tho breeches at the knee. A high
hat with exceedingly small brim Is
rakishly sot on ono side of his head, and
you do not fail to notice the "cuddy"
stuck In the rusty band that confines
tho haso of the crown and has braved
many storms in tho lovely Wloklow
mountains.—Baltimore Sun.
IDEAS ABOUT  HEAVEN.
Aspirations and  Faiths Concerning the
Great Beyond.
Every body has heard of the poor old
fellow, aged, bent double by labor and
sickness, and with only a Bocond-hand
acquaintance with pleasure, who when
asked his idea of heaven answered that
It seemed to him a place where one
might sit forever in an easy chair and
he served with cake and wine byangels.
Such a heaven seemed to his Imagination—nurtured all his life on aches and
pains and thoughts of the labors of the
morrow—a veritable olyBlum; the antithesis of his somber experiences of
life, and in consequence there was nothing irrelevant in his answer, but simply
a description of what to him was a
thought full of joy and comfort to his
aching bones. Simple, however, as was
the old man's answer, it waB representative of the universal voice ot mankind, and contained within it the germ
of that faith which in all Its ages has
blossomed out into aspirations of the
bliss and joy of the great "unknown,"
whose problem has never yet been
Bolved.
The early Christians, torn by wild
beasts In the Roman arena, driven to
secret worship in underground holes,
persecuted, tormented and despised,
pictured a gorgeous city with stroots of
gold and gates of pearl, through Which
they could pass with erect head and
crowned with gold, hearing palms in
their hands and decked in new robes,
singing till tholr hymn should resound
as the voice of many waters. This, according to a writer in the Brooklyn
Standard-Union, was tho Patmosian
heaven, a scene of splendid felicity and
pure beatification. What more entrancing ldoa could thero be of such a reward
for thoso who are faithful unto death,
and what more bright and sweet to the
poor, quivering martyrs who, while
writhing In dames and torture, could
look smilingly up to tbo troop of "bright
ones" who oome to boar them away to
such delights.
Tho Hebrew apocryphal literature describes an upper, or heavenly, and a
lower, or earthly, paradise. Each Is
divided into seven dwellings, each of
which is twelve times ten thousand
miles in length and breadth. A column
ascends from the lower to tho upper
beaven, by whioh the souls of the
blessed mount to the higher after a
temporary sojourn in tho lower. The
Talmud names as one of tho glories of
tho upper paradise the society of Enoch,
Elijah, Moses and Ezra, who walk in
tho light of the coming Messiah. At
tho last day all Israel's onemles are to
bo cast into Gehenna and the blessed
gathered together in the higher paradise.
The Mohammedan heaven, as described in the Koran, is a place of the
rarest delights, whero the righteous recline on mossy couches in a fair garden,
listening to entrancing strains and
drinking of the rarest and ploaaantest
beverages.
Tho heaven of the o_d Norsemen Ib
the abode of the heroes slain in battle,
who live again in the scenes of their lifo,
hut amid eternal victories, chanting
sagas and battio songs ana quaffing
mead from tho skulls of tholr enemies.
Of an entirely different naturo Is the
heavon of tho Buddhist. It consists of
twenty-eight grades in a gradually ascending scale of happiness as follows:
Thonot-flghting, tho joyful, the change-
enjoying, tho changing others—arbitrarily, tho assembled Brahmas, the
servants of Brahma, tho great Brahmas,
limited, light, llllmited lights, pure
light, limited purity, llllmited purity,
perfect purity, great merit, unconscious,
the not great, tho exempt from pain,
the well-seeing, tho beautiful, tho
highest, illimlted space, llllmited
science, tho place of naught, that of no-
thought and that of not-no-thought,
this 'last being a sphoro whoro all tho
activities of -lire are nil. Indeed, tho
final goal of Buddhism looks toward tho
dostruction of sin hy oxhausting Us existence, or 'by Impeding Its existence.
Much akin to this are tho Brahmlniual
and Shinto heavens, as well as that of
the Parsoos, which look toward final
glorification in a state ot ecstatic peace
in company with Ahura-Mazada, their
supreme deity.
There is something pathetically simple in the distinctively opposito idea In
whioh  the red man's boaven  Is conceived.   To him there Is spread out the
happy hunting grounds where, with his
dog, his how and arrows, he may follow
the deer over   rustling prairies and
through tho whispering woods with no
paleface to follow to lmposo upon him
the restraint ho despises; all ot which
has been so happily described by Pope.
Lo, tho poor Indian! whose untutored mind
Sees Ood In clouds, or bears him in tbe wind.
His soul proud science never taught to stray
Far as the solar walk or milky way:
Yet wimple nature to his hope bus Riven
Uoltind tbo elaud'lop'd hill nn humbler heaven;
Some safer world In depths of woods embraced,
Some happier Island in tho watery waste.
Where slaves once more their native land behold,
No thieves torment, no Christians'thirst for
gold.
To bo, contents h-ts natural desire.;
Ho asks no angel's wing, no seraph's Hro
Hut thinks, admitted to that equal sky.
His faithful dog shall hear him company.
A  SEVERE  REBUKE.
How ft Younft Man  Treated   ft  Girl Who
Wasn't Heady mi Time.
A sovero but well-morlted rebuke
waa administered not long ago, says the
New York Evening Sun's Wotnan-
About-Town, to a society girl hy a
young man who has the courage of very
creditable conviction upon a certain
common lack of the nicest courtesy
among young womon who are really
vory woll bred, and who would not
offend for tho world If thoy stopped to
think. Ho told tho story himself, as
follows:
"During one of my busiest weeks I
invited a young woman to go with me
to the theater on a certain first night.
When the ovonlng oame I reached her
homo shortly before eight o'clock. I
waited In tho reception-room for some
time. Then tho mamma appeared. Wo
chatted for a quarter of un hour longor.
Still no signs of tho young woman. 1
looked at my watch; it was just timu for
the ourtaln to rise at the theater. I
particularly wanted to see the oponlng
of tho play.
"Then I roso and took one ot my
chocks from my pocket. 'Madame,' I
said to the mother, 'here Ib tho oheck
of Miss B.'s chair, and tho carriage is
at tho door. Will you he kind enough
to ask her to oome when it suits her
best For myself, I want to soo the
opening of tho play.' And I walked
out."
"And what did the young woman
do?" asked three breathless listeners all
at once.
"Shooamoin the course of half nn
hour. She had good sense enough to
take tbe rebuke in the right way. She
knew sho deserved It."
"Oh, hut I would never have forgiven
you I" sighed the chorus.
Where Kissing Is Unknown.
As a sign of affection, kissing waB unknown to tho Australians, the New
Zealanders, the Papuans, the Esquimaux and other races. The Polynesians and the Malays always sit down
when speaking to a superior. The Inhabitants ot Mallicollo, an Island in the
Paoiflo Ocean, show thoir admiration hy
hissing; the Esquimaux pull a person's
nose as a compliments a Chinaman puts
on his hat where we take tt off, and
among tho samo curious peoplo a coffin
is eonBlderod as a neat and appropriate
present for an aged person, especially it
ho Ib tn bad health

the charter, will be completed this fall.
The company will build through the
centre of the island to the Gulf ol Georgia next year after the necessary legislation is obtained, it being too late to introduce the amendment at the present
session. The line will cross to tho head
of Lulu Island by the Southern Railway
bridge, which is to be built during tbe
coming summer. Satisfaction was expressed on all sides to-day when it was
learned that tbe company intended
making this excellent move. The extension of the line will also be good
news to the Lulu Island farmers.

Many steamboat men are of the opinion that the tower of tbe new fire hall

aud if the tower was brought into use
for thiB purpose it would prove a great
and valuable convenience to mariners.
The Idea is a good one, aud is well worth
the serious consideration of the proper
authorities.
Important Ileal Estate Deal.
Mr, B. Douglas returned yesterday
from a visit to the capital. During his
stay Mr. Douglas closed arrangements
with Judgo O' Rlelly for the purchaso of
that lot situated at the comer of Columbia, and Mary streets which was recently swept by fire. The price paid by Mr.
Douglas was $21,000, which is admitted
to be a very fair figure. Tho lot Is well
fdtuated and Ib one of the best business
sites lit tho city. It is understood tho
ground will soon becovered wifchahand-
some building, and will lie an ornament
to the city. Tho figure roallsed by
Judgo O'lUolly ib a very increase on the

The Steamboat Deal.
Notwithstanding the reports to the
.ontrary, the telegrams published iu
Tub Columbian from Messrs. Turner,
Beeton & Co., Victoria, concerning the
sale of the steamers Rainbow and Amelia to the C. P. N. Co., were authentic,
and it can be again asserted that there
is no truth in the report that the vesselB
have been sold. According to the Colonist
of yesterday, Capt. John Irving, manager of the Canadian Pacific Navigation
Co., says the rumor that his company is
negotiating for the purchase of the steamers Rainbow and Amelia is without
foundation. If any one Bhould be in a
position to know, Capt. Irving and Mes-
rs. Turner, Beeton & Co., being the
people most directly interested, are the
most likely, and asthey deny it iu toto,
no reasonable protext can be obtained for
forcing the deal on their shoulders.

Westminster  Wins.
The Victoria-Westminster foot ball
match at the Capital City on Saturday
was played under rather unfavorable
circumstances, hut the game was full of
interest notwithstanding. Several of
the first team men were absent, and
their places were filled by the spare
men. The rain fell almost till the
moment the match commenced, and the
ground in consequence was slippery,
victoria won the toBB and took advantage of the slight grade and played
down hill. The game was very fairly
contested, and it waB evident that the
teams were evenly matched. Victoria
scored three minor- points in the flrSt
half, which were obtained by long kicks
from the Victoria backs. In each Instance McLaren waa compelled to touch
down by the good following up of the
Victoria forwards. In tbo second half
there waB good "give and tako" play on
both sides, when Ward was given a freo
kick for a foul on the part of Westminster. The kick went wide of the mark
and Westminster returned tbe ball well
iuto the Victoria half where it remained
for n time. From a scrimmage the Victoria half back secured the ball and
passed to Ward, who passed to Fisher,
who ran with it half the length of tho
field, a splendid play, and was collared
when only a few feet from the Hue by
LuwiB who cleverly put the possibility
of a score out of his reach. The Westminster forwards by a determined rush
carried the ball to centre field whero it
waB fought over for some minutes.
After a hotly contested scrimmage, in
which Westminster showed some strong
play, Corhett finally got away with the
ball and with the assistance of Lister,
Mowat and Turner carried it across tlie
line by a good dribble. At this point
McGregor rushed up, got the ball and
secured a try. Victoria claimed that
McGregor was off side, hut ou the appeal of the umpire the referee did not
allow it, not having blown his whistle.
The try was accordingly allowed and the
kick forgoal failed. Tune was called a few
minutes later, without further points
being scored, nnd the gnme resulted iu
a win for Westminster by one try to
Victoria's four minor points.
The men nil speak very highly of
their treatment nt the Capital. The
best of feeling was displayed on both
sides and the game was a pleasure to all
who took part in it. Mr. Ward entertained a number of the Westminster
men at the Union Club in the evening,
and a right jolly hour was spent in his
company,        '
FIRE BUGS AT WORK.
A  Hand   of  Incendiaries   Working   the
City—Three Attempts to  FIr«
It u I id lugs.
No less than three attempts at incendiarism have been made iu this city
since Saturday night, and it is quite
certain a gang of firebugs are working
to destroy buildings and attract public
attention to the fires In order to work
their scheme of plunder elsewhere. Ou
Saturday night at 10:30 o'clock smoke
commenced to issue through the floor of
Chong Soong's laundry on Columbia
street, next door to Gilley's Transfer
stables. The laundry building stands
on piles, and can be easily approached
from beneath, and had a more suitable
hour, been chosen for the deed the
building could have beeu successfully
fired. As it waB the Chinamen were
still at work, and they, by means of a
trap door, soon got underneath the
building and extinguished the blaze.
Au inspection proved beyond tho possibility of a doubt that incendiarism wub
the object, but it is conjectured that the
fire waB sot hy mistake under the wrong
building, tlie probable intention being
to burn either tho transfer stables or
Mr. A. O. Lund's coopering premises.
An empty coal oil can, filled with charcoal saturated with coal oil and placed
ou a box, were the means used to set
the fire. A small draught hole had been
cut near the bottom of the can to cause
tho flames to burn more freely and to
ensure the success of the attempt, A
bottle, partially filled with coal oil, wub
found near the spot, ami the footsteps
of tho perpetrators are still visible in
the soft mud.
The second attempt was made at 10 :!10
o'clock last night, when the rear portion of the Cleveland house was fired.
A broken liquor case and a number of
empty cigar boxes, covered with coal
oil, had been piled round one of the
Umbers which support the platform at
the rear of the building, aud set ou fire.
The fire could not havo been burning
moro than a few momenta when one nf
the employees of tho hotel discovered
the blaze and gave the alarm, A lire
alarm was sounded, but the flames had
not got any headway and were easily
subdued without the asslstnuco of tho
department. No clue remained whereby the perpetrators might be discovered,
Tho third and lost attempt was made
about 2:30 o'clock this morning, At
that hour Constable Anderson saw a
suspicious looking man approaching the
building on Front street occupied by
Mr. Millard, Mr. Austin and others.
The man was lu the vacant lot adjoining the building, and the constable
leaped over the railing into the lot with
commendable promptness and gave
chase, but the fellow darted under the
roadway and was soon out of sight In
the intricate windings of that convenient
labyrinth.
The police have tho facts of all these
attempts and no doubt are working hard
to discover the incendiaries, but no information as to the success so far met
with was obtained at headquarters today. __________________
The base-ball lmysare putting iu good

may safely be Baid to lie within the mark,
and "hall as is ball" will surely be
played this season.—Kamloops Sentinel,

The first annual District Conference of
the Young Men's Christian Association
of British Columbia, District. No. 1,
Pacific Northwest, wub held in thiB city
on Saturday, Sunday and Monday (today), the 22nd, 23rd and 24th of March.
Delegates from Victoria, Vancouver and
Nanaimo were met at the train and boat
by the New Westminster delegation,
and escorted to Temperance Hall, where
the ladies auxiliary of tbe local association had prepared a Biimptuouscollatioii,
after which tlie delegates adjourned to
the Baptist Church, where devotional
exorcises were conducted by Mr. C. C.
Fisher.
At 3 p. m. Mr. F. W. 'league, General
Secretary at Victoria and chairman of
District Committee, formally opened the
Conference, and Mr, John Horner, of
Nanaimo, was elected president of the
Conference.
Upon taking the chair Mr, Horner
said that, as a delegate from Nanaimo,
he represented a desire rather than a
reality. He also represented a necessity,
and be hoped at the next Conference to
represent a substantial reality in the
shape of a well organized Young Men's
Christian Association.
Mr. T. M. Cunningham was elected
vice-president, and Mr. A. C. Brydonc-
Jack,secretary.
In reporting from Victoria, Mr. Tongue
said that they wero carrying on very
successfully all lines of Association work,
and that with their new rooms they
would offer such attractions to young
men that their membership would soon
reach 200.
Secretary Charnock, of Vancouver,
reported good work being done and is
pushing ahead for a $40,00(1 building,
C. A. Davie, Secretary at New Westminster, reported a membership of 130
in good standing; they had lately organized a Ladies' Auxilary Committee,
which now has 20 members, this being
in addition to the Ladies Central Committee of 10 ladies. Four educational
classeB have been well attended and will
result in benefitting the young men who
attended them. An orchestra of 18 instruments iB one of the attractions which
the Association boasts. They have
secured a lot, which at the present time
is worth $5,000 and will soon begin the
erection of a building worth $12,000.
Mr. C. Coatham road n paper on
boys' work; a very earnest appeal for
moro work among the boys. Their
want has to some extent been met by
the Sunday School, but not sufficient,
and tho work of the Young Men's
Christian Association to save young
men and keep them from evil* ways
should begin among the boys. All the
usual methods of Association work can
and should be applied to the junior
department of the Association. If possible they should havo separate rooms,
so that their work will not conflict with
other Hues of work carried on or be interfered with by them. The lender of a
"boys' branch1' should have special
qualifications and be able to devote
himself to tho boys in every possible
way.
'Ihe next paper presented was by Mr.
F. W. Tongue, entitled "Our Field,"
which embraced the whole Province of
British Columbia. Within the Province
there are 15,000 or more young men,
between the ages of 10 and 40, many of
whom nevor go to church and are wholly
outside of church influence. This number is being added to continually. The
large area "of the Province, and the
richness of it's natural resources, offers
special inducements to young men of
courage and pluck.
A most favorable report was given
from Nanaimo, looking forward lo the
formation of an Association.
Tho rest of the afternoon was takon up
with a business session aud a "question
drawer," conducted by Mr. V. N. Johnson, the Travelling "Secretary. Many
questions relative to Association work
wers asked and ably answered by him.
KVKNtSd   HKSSION. ,
The evening session was held in Herring's Opera House, and opened with'
devotional exercises, conducted by Mr,
Johnson, after which he spoke of the
great demand for Yi M. C. A. work
throughout tho Pacific Northwest, of
what had been done, and what would bo
done iu the near future. In a few yours,
he thought, every tqwn of 3,000 or more
inhabitants would have its Association.
Mr. George Carter, General Secretary
of the Seattle Association, was
then introduced, and spoke of
their . struggle and succcbs in
obtaining a new building there.
After the fire they were shifted
about from one church basement to
another, but now they have a part of
their new building completed nnd furnished with gymnasium and auditorium.
The gymnasium was the finest nnd most
complete on the Pacific coast. Monoy
has not been spared in furnishing these
rooms for the young men of Seattlo, but
in carpets, curtains and all their furnishings are most complete nud attractive.
second da v.
At 9 a. in, a workers' consecration
service was held in the Y. M. C. A.
reading room, 35 being present. At 11
o'clock tho delegates attended divine
service iu the different churches, Mr.
Johnson supplying the pulpit of tho
Baptist church. The same pulpit was
supplied by Mr. Tongue iu tho evening.
A committee-men's conference was
held in the Association rooms at 3 p. In.,
at which the different methods of doing
invitation and reception work were discussed.
The usual 4 o'clock men's meeting
was held in the Opera House, addressed
by Mr. C. C. Fisher; subject, "Character—What it is and how obtained." At
the close a short testimony meeting wub
held, and 7 young men requested prayers
that they might be helped to begin tho
Christian life.
Immediately after the evening services in tho churches tho congregations
adjourned to the Opera House, when a
farewell Bervicu was held, addressed by
the delegates.
Mr. Tongue, chairman of the District
Committee, spoke of tho object and
necessity of dividing the Pacific North-
West into districts,
Mr. Geo. Carter sjioke of the necessity of the associations having a permanent home, aud from his own oxjieriet.ee
of the great increase iu membership
when that Is accomplished.  ,
A collection of $38 was takon to help
defray the expenses of tho conference.
All the delegates and association members joined hands around the house and
sang the association hymn "Blest, he the
tic that binds our hearts in Christian
lovo," after which the benediction was
pronounced by Rev. Mr. White.
Owing to lack of space, the report of
to-dny's proceedings has been belt, over
untl to-morrow.
guest. Hicks ia nothing if not enterprising, and deserves success in his new
departure. He proposes to run a temperance house and haa already erected a
shed for the free use of the public who
may wish to shelter their teams while in
town.
Improvements are not confined to the
town, however, as new lumber is looming up all over the flats. Messrs. Sherman & Hinchcliffe, who do business'just
out of town, have some lumber on the
ground for building purposes. Mr.
Hodge has about finished his new house,
and Mr. Mathieson has juBt completed
a house and barn on the property lately
purchased from Mr. Turner.
It is reported that Rev. Dr. Warren
will preach every Suwiy evening in the
School House, it would be very interesting if the reverend gentleman would
kindly resurrect that resurrection sermon, and give the readers of The Columbian a chance to judge for themselves of
his views on tho question. I think I
may, in justice to myself, say that I was
in full sympathy with Dr. Warren and
would not at any time do him any injury
in the way of misrepresenting him, if I
knew it, but the report of his sermon
was made from notes taken at the meeting by a man whose friendship for Dr.
Warren cannot be gainsaid, and it never
occurred to either of us that he would
wish to shield himself from the consequence of any statement made or idea
advanced on that occasion.
