(Before Mr. Justice Drake.)
A. O. Lund's cross-examination con
tinned: -
Witness had discovered immoral in
Struments in Hill's bedroom after the
22nd December and had examined it at
regular intervals and noted its condition.
The witnesses, JohiiBon and Shepherd
were not ou very familiar terms. Wit-
ness hud asked Johnson to accompany
him to witness the scene between Hill
and the witness' wife. Johnson was unwilling at first to go, and received no fee
or reward for his service. Johnson
knew that the message calling Mind to
Vancouver waa a false message. They
both listened in the trench to the proceedings in the dining-room.
When iu Hill's, room after the denouement witness admitted that he was not
very angry, but "pretty shaky." Witness denied ever having informed his
wife's father that ho "could not afford
to huy grub for her and the children."
Witness' father-in-law visited witness'
sbo]i last August, but the conversation
had no reference to "grub," or witness
j returning to his wife's bed, or to the
jftoduption of further family or in any
way to the family's affairs. Witness
said he had not written the advertisement which appeared in tho local newspapers, Mr. Shepherd wrote the notice;
he is reporter for the World,
By Mr. McColl—WitneBS had warned
several city stores not to give credit to
bis wife.
Arthur Shepherd was the next witness. He has lived in Westminster
about three years. Knows the Lund
family very well. Has lived with them
since last July. Knows Mr, Hill; he
lodged at Lunds. Hill went in there in
August. Witness remembered the 18th
of January perfectly. Went to his own
room that evening and read until about
0 o'clock, whon he went to bed. Was
awakened at a quarter to 1 by a loud
knocking at the door; he got up at once
and unlocked the door and went out into
the passage, when he heard Mr. Lund
say very loudly, "This is the thing you
have been prosltuting my wife with, you
villain." He waa greatly excited. Mrs.
Lund waa standing at the foot of Hill's
bed. Lund waa walking down the room
from the window. Mra. Lund was very
much unrobed. On witness* advice she
went down stairs. Johnson stood where
he was in the passage. Hill said to
Lund that it would be hard to turn a
man out of doors on such a night. Lund
said he would pitch him and his traps
out if he did not go at once. Lund then
followed witness into witness' roqm.
Mrs. Lund and some of the children
then came into tbe same room. Mrs.
Lund was crying bitterly. She admitted to witness that she had been criminally intimate on several occasions with
Hill. This was taken down in writing
by witness. [This document, which was
signed by Mrs. Lund, wub road out by
the clerk.] In helping Mrs. Lund down
stairB, witness said: " Oh, Mrs. Lund,
how could you be such a foolish woman?"
She replied. " He told me that he loved
sons who had lowered themselves to act
in the capacity of sneaking spies, dastardly, mean and dishonorable. Then,
Shepherd, again, as most of the jury
knew, was a man of some education ana
should have known better than to take
any act or part in thia matter. It would
be clearly shown by evidence why Mrs,
Lund came to be in the hall that evening. It was a cold day and the front
window upstairs had been left open,
and Mrs. Lund went upstairs to close
it. That waB why Johnson, the spy,
found her at tho top of the stairs, seized
her roughly by the arm and threw her
violently into one of the rooms and
charged her with adultery. But when
they came to listen to, the evidence the
jury would be able to see how little
foundation there was for thiB charge.
Court adjourned at 5:30 p. in. until
10 o'clock this (Tuesday) morning.
Court sat at 10 a. m. thiB morning.
There wus agood attendance os spectators, very young men making a large
part of tlie audience.
Mi's. Kachael Lund was accommodated
with a chair and gave her evidence iu a
calm, collected manner. Mr. Wilson
examined the witness. The evidence
dealt mainly witli family matters relating to the commencement of the cessation of marital intercourse and the
alleged cruelty of Lund to his wife. Witness began to let rooms in her house
last July and has had several gentlemen
living In the house since that time.
These roomers were often invited by Mr.
Lund to come into the sitting room during the cold weather. Mr. Shepherd
ilrnt ceased to make these visits to the
Bitting room. Mr. Hill continued coming. Shepherd's absence was noted by
witness; her husband told her that
Shepherd was busy and bo kept to his
own room. Lund was always quite
friendly to Hill and used to talk to him
in the most amicable manner. In regard
to the cellar door aud the trench, and
the other means which her husband
used whereby to conduct his espionage
upon his wife's behavior, they were described in almost the identical manner
Lund had described them. On January
18th last, just as witness was returning
from up stairs, where she had gone to
shut a window before going - to bed, the
man Johnston seized her roughly by the
arm and yelled for Lund. Lund then
came up and seized her other arm and
she was then inarched into Hill's room,
where she nnd Hill were charged with
illicit intimacy. Lund was cursing and
swearing all the time this was going on.
When the trio entered Hill's room that
gentleman rose up in bed and wanted to
know what was the matter. Witness
was thon dragged down stairs and cross-
examined by Lund and Johnson SB to
hor relationship with Hill, She denied
all the charges they made and said she

Sear and a half.    
Irs. Lund in January.
Cross-examined by Mr. Eckstein.—
Witness had been first informed by
Lund that he was suspicious of his wife,
on the 23rd December. Witness advised
Lundlo consult a good firm of lawyers
about the matter. Witness said he had
a great deal to do with giving the facts of
this case to the IPorM newspaper of Vancouver.
Witness here asked His Lordship if he
was bound to answer questions put to
him about his connection with that
paper. His Lordship said the witness
was not bound to incriminate himself.
Witness, therefore, refused to answer
the question |is to whether he was responsible for the article which appeared
in the World. Tho paper was ruled out
as it was not in evidence.
In reference to the signing of the con
feBsion, witness said that Mrs. Lund
was oti the verge of hysterics when she
signed the paper.
By the foreman of the jury.—Was
Mrs. Lund iu full possession of her
senses when she signed that paper.
Witness.—Yes, perfectly bo.
Mrs. Jugers, of Victoria,  waB next
sworn.—Has known Mrs. Lund about a
Received a letter from
 nary.   This letter she
destroyed. She could not remember
what the letter was about. Another
lettor waa received at a later date and
destroyed like the other.
Mr. Lund, recalled, said that he had
taken a copy of a letter Bent by Mrs.
Lund to Mrs. Jagers. He suspected
that the letter contained something improper. Mr. Sheppard took a copy of
this letter, at Mr. Lund's request. The
original letter waa mailed to Mrs.
Jagers.
Mr. Shepherd, recalled, identified the
copy of the letter. The document exhibited was a true-copy of the original.
The clerk read the letter to the court.
It is scarcely fit for publication.
Dr. DeWoIf Smith, sworn, stated tho
use oi the immoral instruments exhibited in court.
A. O, Johnson next took the stand
and deposed that he had lived in the
city about a year, and knew the Lund
family. Ho wont on the watch last
New Year's evening with Lund.
' The rest of the witness' evidence was
mainly corroboration of that given by
Lund.
Cross-examined by Mr. Wilson,—He
had waited at the spy-hole about an
hour on each occasion.
This witness exhibited almost phenomenal density and the cross-
examiner's patience was sorely
tried. Witness admitted that ho had
told Lund what he had seen aud heard
in hiB "spotting" trips. It was a painful and humiliating recital to listen to.
C. Warwick, called, testified that he
had witnessed the marriage ceremony
of Mr. and Mrs. Lund.
H, Husscll, next called, stated that ho
know the Lund family and was in their
bouse on January (Itli last in compauy
with Mr. Lund. They went to Mr.
Lund's room, Tbey then returned to
the kitchen und peeped through the
key-hole into the dining-room; they
saw Hill aud Mrs. Lund iu front of the
fire. The spies then went away, but
returned some time after to continue
their watch. Tho next night thoy
watched again. This time Mrs. Lund
was playing the piano and Hill was
blowing a cornet over her shoulder.
Mr. Lund was recalled and aaid that
Mrs. Lund had asked him to post the
letter which he had copied. Mrs. Lund
had acted suspiciously in the case of a
former letter, on which be had Been the
name Jagers, which made him suspicious. He did not dictate that copied
letter to his wife; nevor asked her to
write a compromising letter to any one.
Mr. Eckstein then addressed the jury
on behalf of his client. This was one of
the most solemn cases which a jury was
ever called upon to decide. Tho breaking of the bond of matrimony was ono
of tbo most solemn things ■ that ever
came, before a law-court. Tho means
which had been employed to discover
the alleged adultery wore despicable,
mean and vile. No honorable man
would ever stoop to such moans to discover anything however important.
Thou Mr. Shepherd's conduct in the
box was remarkable Hia answers aud
bis behavior generally were not those
of a sincere man. Mr. Shepherd was
evidently lu this conspiracy. Ho admitted it in fact. Thou ho had copied
an intercepted letter from ono lady to
another, a tiling that no man with any
integrity would ever condescend to
commit.   Tho other witnesses were per-
knew nothing of Hill's alleged intimacy
with her. Shepherd then brought forward the confession he had drawn up;
he had signed it first, and, drawing up
a little table, he bade witness sign it,
too. She did so because she was afraid
of the three men, Shepherd, Johnson
aud Lund. The latter continually cursed and swore. Witness
never read the document, nor
was it read to her. Witness was shown
the document iu court and denied each
item iu it severally, and with emphasis
sho never made any such confession.
She did not Bee it written and could not
tell when it was written. Before this
time witness said Hill had never attempted any familiarities with her; nor
she with him. She always retired to
rest before 11 p. m. aud was never up
later than that. She had no hired help
iu the house. Lund kept the door of
his room locked. He told her not to
mind it. ThiB began in January. On
being asked again as to the matter of
retiring at night, witness reiterated her
statement that she usually retired before 11 o'clock. Hill wbb generally the
last person in tbe sitting room at night.
Sometimes Hill aud she used to practice
on tho piano iu the evening. As to the
charge of cruelty, witness said that on
the 0th of June last Luud kicked her
and gave her a black eye. On this day
he came home as she was lifting dinner,
and seeing some blood on her face enquired the cause of its coming there.
She told him that the baby had cut its
finger on some glass and had probably
Eut some of the blood on her face,
und did not hear the reply clearly, and
kicked her, Baying, "why don't you
speak out? I can't bear you for the
children making Btich a noise." She
complained of Ibis treatment and he
thereupon struck her on the face and
knocked her from one side of the room
to tho othor. From last August Luud
had shut off the proper household supplies, and stopped her credit at the
various city storoB. Flour, potatoes.
meat and sometimes a salmon were all
the food Lund provided for his family.
Witness said she had first seen the immoral implement (shown her in court)
the previous day, when Lund showed it
her. Witness denied ever having used
the epithets alleged by Lund, to have
been applied by Her to him. Witness'
denials nf those statements were most
emphathic. Witness sometimes corresponded with Mrs. Jagers of Victoria,
She wrote her twice in January. One
of thoso letters was written at tho dictation of Lund.
Examined by Mr. McColl—Witness
said Hill camo into the house on the
18th of January about 7 o'clock p.m,
Lund went to bed soon after; witness
retired about 11 o'clock. Shepherd had
come down stairs at about nine o'clock
and then retired to hia room. She, before going to hor room, went up stain
to close a window that had been left
open all day. It was while returning
from thiB expedition that Johnson seized
her on the landing. Johnson called out
for Lund and for that reason she did not
call for assistance from Hill, whose room
waa close by. Sho thought at first that
Johnson was a burglar. Had Been
Johnston before ou several occasions.
When Lund camo up in answer to Johnson's calls the two took witness into
Hill's room. Here the charge was made
that she had been cohabiting with Hill.
Hill called Lund a liar and denied the
charge. Shepherd camo into the room
where these proceedings wore going forward. He was in his night-shirt. Witness nnd Shepherd had been on friendly
terms since tlie latter caino to the house.
Witness had not the least idea what the
confession was when she signed it, nor
the reason for asking her to sign that
document. The letter already mentioned was taken up in detail by the examiner aud some slight facts elicited
with a good deal of difficulty, from the
witness. Witness did not remember
having told Rev. Mr. White the particulars of tho affair. Witne saald alio
had told a lady friend tho facta of tlie
case.
By Mr. Wilson—The reason why sho
had not called out for assistance or raised
an alarm when seized by Johnson was
because she was so badly frightened.
Hill insisted ou coming into the sitting-
room although witness objected to his
presence there. Shepherd and Hill
were both known to Mrs Jagers.
The next witness was Thomas Hill.
Mr. Gaynor examined; the same evidence, us haB already appeared, was
gone ovor to a great extent. Witness
had no fire in his own room and came
down to the sitting-room to warm himself ou the invitation of Mr. Lund.
Luud used to get up and leavo the room;
witness and Mrs. Luud being thus left
together. Ou January 18th witness
came home between 10 and 11 p.m.; he
sat a short time in the sitting-room und
then went up stairs to bed. Ho saw
Mrs. Lund pass his door a few minutes
after reaching his room aud heard a
window close: thon Mrs. Lund returned
to tho head of the stairs; the next thing
lie heard was Johnson's voice calling for
Mr. Lund.   The latter came into Hill's,
room and accused him of committing
adultery with his wife. Hill was then
ordered out of the house. Witness denied that any illicit intercourse had ever
taken place at any time between Airs.
Luud and himself. Mr?. Lund on the
occasion referred to above wore a durk
dress and waa frightened.
Mr. Jeims cross-examined—Was on
the outaide part of the bed when Mrs.
Luud was dragged into the room by
Lund and Johnson. He was in a rising
or sitting position. Witness admitted
the ownership of the immoral instruments.
Mr. Wilson then examined the witness.
Mr. Williams, father of Mrs. Luud,
next took the stand.    At the  time of
Mr.   Lund's courtship' tbe Methodist
church had directed its adherents to invite young men to their homes to keep
them out of bad company.   Witness had
instructed Lund that he could not keep
both families going in food.   Lund, he
said, waa earning u good wage while he,
the witness, was only earning $55 a
month.   The conditions  under which
Lund had taken his wife from her father
were that he should hold family prayers
night and morning ami keep it' up, and
treat her kindly.   This he had not done.
Lund said he could not afford $40 a month
to feed hia family.
Court adjourned nt 12:15 for an hour.
Courtresuipedbustnesif at 1:30 p.m.
Dr. Fagan took the stand.    He bad
heard Mr. Shepherd's evidence the day
before.    Hysteria leaves   the   victim
totally without will power.    From the
description of the symptoms aa given
by witness   Shepherd  he  would   say
that Mrs. Lund suffered from hysteria.
The fit comes from some shock.    The
degree of will power during the fit depends upon the person.
This closed the evidence.
Mr. Wilson addressed the jury much
as follows: The offence which thoy had
been called upon to try involved the
honor of a woman and ot her children.
He drew attention to the position the
offence held   In  scriptural commandments and showed  the solemnity and
importance of it.    Among that class of
particular offences which we are enjoined to avoid is this one of adultery.   The
ancient penalty for a womuu caught in!
adultery was death.lt is only one degree'
removed from murder.    You must require the  very strictest evidence.    If
tlie woman is found guilty the punishment is not imprisonment, not death,
but life-long punishment.    Tho learned gentleman then reviewed the. case
and pointed out the points of more particular importance.    This was a  very
difficult thing to prove; it was a hard
matter to catch the parties in 7fa„
delicto.   And the evidence should be of
the moat indubitable character.   The
husband of this woman is old enough to
be her father.   The conduct of thiB man
when he discovered his wife's actions
with Hill was vory strange.    When the
foul suspicion was aroused in his mind
he did not go manfully and attempt to
stop these proceedings but commenced
to dig a trench under the house in order
to trap hia wife in adultery.   Words failed him (tho speaker) to adequately express his contempt for such a despicable
piece of villainy and meanness as this
key-hole espionage.   And yet this man
has the hardihood to come into this
court and ask you to dissolve the holy
bauds of matrimony.   He tells you that
he, while spying through the key-hole,
saw Hill kissing his wife; he had been
looking for this, he had waited and planned to observe this.    Another peculiar
thing is that while Lund, Johnson and
Russell were spying through tbe key-hole
all the doors wero open.   It is perfectly
unreasonable to think that the two people, Mrs- Lund and Hill, would indulge
in their love making with all the doors
open and people moving about the house.
Mr. Wilson knocked the range of vision
statement, i, e. from the key-hole to the
dining-room table, where Lund says he
saw  his  wife and Hilt standing, into
fragments.   Tho learned counsel clearly
showed that persons standing at that
part of the room could not possibly be
seen  from  tbe key-hole.    Shepherd's
motive in asking Mrs. Lund if sue had
any statement to make  was  severely
questioned.   Every statement made by
Lund had been contradicted by his wife.
Had Lund brained Hill on the spot he
would have thought him an honest man.
Au eminent judge said lately that "there
are some felonies we are bound to commit," and this is one of them.   But, no,
this man allows the hammer to bo taken
from him and then goes down stairs.
Hill's conduct was not that of a guilty
man; ho was as cool as a cucumber; he
said the charge was a lie.
The speech of Kir. Wilson was one of
the finest efforts of convincing logic and
eloquence ever heard in the old court
room.

which tho jury wore to base their findings. First that of adultery; second,
that of cruelty. His Lordship thon detailed the caso shortly.
The jury retired at 3:30, after having

A Leap For Lift..
Columbus, S.C., April 29.—A remark'
able leap from a moving train was made
on Sunday by Vince Story, an escaped
convict, who had been recaptured iu
Georgia, aud having been extradited
waB being taken to tho penitentiary.
They were on the fast passenger train
and the hands of the convict were tied
with rope. When passing through
Edgefield, the country home of Story,
the guard left his side a moment to get
a drink of water. The window by tlie
convict had been left open to admit tbe
air, and the guard haa hardly turned
his back when Storv, with hia hands
tied behind him and the train making
over 40 miloB an hour, sprang head-first
through the window. ..The train was
stopped and backed up, but nothing
could be found of tho daring convict.
The guard remained behind to continue
the search.	
Tomahawked liy IntllniiH.
Ai.uuqueho.ve, Min., April 20.—News
has just reached the city that a prospector named George Ross was attacked
by Zuni Indiana and almost tomahawked. Ross was on his way to Gallup and
stopped in the mountains to cook a
meal. While he was preparing to eat
some Indians rode up and one of tho
numlier advanced toward liim and
struck him on the head with a hatchet,
as ho was falling he grabbed his revolver and began Tiring. This frightened
the Indians, who ran away. He rallied
somewhat and mounting his horse rode
to Fort Wingnte whoro the to is a hospital. He was taken from his horse iu
au almost unconscious condition, hiB
brains and blood oozing from the ghastly wound.   He will not survive.

COMMUNICATIONS.
From T. Ackerman, Chief Engineer of
the Fire Department, recommending
water, gas and a telephone be supplied
to tbe new fire ball so that the fire engines may be placed thero without delay. Referred to tbe Fire and .Light
Committee with power to act.

that a stable next ber residence on Elliot
Btreet Is a nuisance. Referred to the
Hoard of Health.'
Hia Worship said the Health By-law
constituted the Chief of Police health
officer and ho should act under the bylaw.
Aid. Hoy said this was a genuine case
of nuisance and should lie remedied ut
once.
From the Chief of Police, complaining
that the street lamps had not been lighted since last Thursday, Referred to the
Fire aud Light Committee.

of the new fire hall-
Received and referred to tho Board of
Works with power to act.

From J. C. Armstrong, in the name
of the New Westminster and Burrard
Inlet Telephone Co., asking leave to lay
poles on the street.
His Worship said he had been keeping his eyes opeu ou thiB question on
the other side. Thore they seemed to
set their poles on the Bide walk, on the
principle, presumably, that it was better
to keep the street clear and put the
poles ou the side walk. Aid. Hoy said
it was unfair to turn the streetB into a
work shop. Tho company Bhould get a
lot and dress their poles there.
Aid. Johnson wanted to know if the
company should not lie prohibited from
putting more poles on tbe streets.
There seemed to lie enough of them
already.
Aid. Sinclair proposed n time-limit for
tlie poles lying on tbo streetB.

better defer action until the Telephone
By-law was brought in.

nkpoitTs.
The Board of Works Committee re-
gorted that they had deputized Aid.
biles to visit Portland, Ore., to find
out all he could about a ferry service.
The report of that gentleman is as follows :
Gentlemen:—Iu accordance with instructions, I proceeded to Portland and
collected aa much information as possible
on the subject of cost and working of
ferries, and now beg to report.
Tho Stark street ferry in Portland has
a boat 140 feet long with centre wheel,
capable of carrying 32 hacks at once and
is run at an expense of $20 per day, and
managed by two men; makes a round
trip evory ten minutes. Tho river Is
about half tho width of the Fraser aud
runs the whole twenty-four hours.
This boat is operated on a cable and
the system is found to work well. Last'
winter the regular trips were made without trouble or accident while the river
was encumbered with six inches of ice.
Although there Is a substantial traffic
bridgo one block from the ferry landing,
the ferry continues to be well patronized.
Teams of all descriptions can drive on
and off the ferry without the slightest
difficulty or risk.
I have arranged to procure drawings
of the hull of a similar boat, that is to
Bay. a boat one hundred feet long, and
thirty-two foot beam, which I think
would meet the requirements of Westminster at present. I may state that
the population of the two divisions of
Portland amounted to about one hundred
thousand before the necessities of traffic
procured the building of a bridge.
My opinion, founded on the observations I have made is that a ferry
on the principle of that above mentioned would supply all our requirements
for some years to come. My opinion is,
based upon such information aa I could
obtain, that the cost of such a ferry boat,
complete ub I have described, would not
exceed $15,000, not including cable, approaches, etc.
I may also state with regard to a
bridge, that I waited upon the agent of
the Pacific Bridge Company to get Information. That gentleman could give no
definite estimate of tho cost of a bridge
until tho site Bhould first have been surveyed and properly examined by a com-
-letont engineer. This information can
>c obtained only by the Corporation
paying the expenses of an engineer and
$8 per day for tho timo from leaving until return. This Ib about the substance
of tho information received. Ab it Ib a
necessity to have a ferry, 1 hope the
council will lose no time iu taking steps
respecting the said forry, as it will take
about two years or more to build a
bridge. B. W. Suii.sb.
His Worship said he had gone over at
the samo time as Aid. Shiles.   He was

FERRY OR BRIDGE.
Tins still continues to be, undoubtedly, the burning local question, and will
be until settled. That tho problem is
now iu u fair way for an oarly solution
will bo a matter of satisfaction, not only
to every citizen, but to many people
throughout tho District, who are equally
interested, ns well. The late action of
the City Council in sending n committee
of investigation to Portland, Or., and
the proposal of Mr. Balfour submitted
last night, have reduced the whole question to its lowest terms, ub it were, ami
to carry out the arithmetical metaphor,
all that'remains is to do a little judi
clous cancelling and obtain tbe true
answer.
It ia truo there are other propositions
iu the public mind-—such ub a bridge of
boats, as advocated by a correspondent
in another column—but, without going
iuto the merits of that suggestion, and
at the same time with due deference to
the opinion of our esteemed correspondent, we hardly think the pontoon
bridge idea is just the thing, under all
the circumstances; oven on our correspondent's own showing it would be
something of au experiment at this
point, and ns be also puts it, "more or
"less temporary in its nature." If we
cannot agree with our correspondent,
however, aB to the particular means—a
sort of compromise between a ferry and
a bridge—by which he would propose to
solve the river crossing problem at this
time, we can thoroughly agree with him
when he says: "Time is the first consideration, the next communication,
" be it what it may, shonld bo in work-
" ing order this summer if possible.1
It will not be out of place to bear this
in mind whon proceeding to the consideration of the definite question of
ferry vs. bridge, ns defined, on the one
hand, by the report of Alderman ShileB
and the explanations nnd remarks of the
Mayor, submitted at last night's Council
meeting, and on the other, by the proposal of Mr. Balfour, laid before the
Council on the same occasion, and pre<
viously enlarged upon by the press.
Without going into details, already
published, Mr. Balfour's proposal is,
briefly, to build a Howe truss, wooden,
draw bridge, the draw giving two clear
openings of 100 feet each, the bridge
being 18 feet above tbo ordinary level of
tbe river, and the structure to coat the
sum of $150,000, and to be completed
some time next spring, tho contractor
agreeing to guarantee the bridge for a
limited time nnd for about one-third of
its cost.
From the light thrown upon tbe ferry
subject, by the investigations of Mayor
Brown and Alderman Shiles at Port
land, Or., it would appear—and, in fact
is stated in the official roport of the
latter, as a committee of tlie Board of
Works, und fully sustained by tho
Mayor's informal report on the subject
—that a cable ferry, amply sufficient for
the needs of traffic on the route for some
time to come, could be constructed, together with approaches, etc., for about
$20,000 aud maintained at a current expense very little, if any, in excess of the
cost of running the present makeshift
ferry. Prior to the information obtained upon the subject by tho Portland
trip, the most sanguine ferry advocate
did not attempt to estimate nearly bo
low upon tho cost of a ferry steamer and
approaches aa it has been ascertained,
approximately, these can be built for.
Some information also—of a general
nature, but not by any means without
value as bearing upon the question for
solution by the Council and the ratepayers—was secured by the Mayor and Aid.
Shiles on the bridge question; nnd we
are not surprised that both of the
investigators have reported strongly in
favor of tho ferry, and that immediate
steps should bo taken by the Council in
the matter.
The Columbian has from the first
urged, what in fact is apparent to nearly
everyone, that a ferry must bo put on in
any event. It would not do to wait oven
until next spring for a very material
improvement upon the present means
of communication with tho districts
south of the river. We nre losing ground
every day ns it is; and a ferry on the
same principle as the Portland ferry
will give us connection with Surrey
nearly equal for all practical purposes,
with the present traffic, to a bridge, and
give us timo to give every bridge scheme
that may come up the most careful
and thorough consideration, which
the subject, indubitably demands, to
guarantee against hasty experimenting
and costly mistakes. Tho ferry can be
completod and put in running order
during the present season, and while it
will, we are convinced, give a very satisfactory service until such timo as we are
able to undertake and complete a proper bridge, the expenditure upon tho
ferry will not bo thrown away, as the
demands of the traffic in a few years will
in all probability, require, as( In Portland, two or threo. separate means of
communication'across the river.

the boy said about the dog, when asked
what breed, he replied half collie and
the other half just dog) just horse, standing here for service this year.
Mr. Vedder, of Sardis, is giving bis

an improvement. His new house, with
its lofty tower, is being pushed forward
to completion, and when finished will

Politics are quiet here just now. Mr.
Corbould, without a doubt, iB the choice
for Ottawa.
We are badly in want of a good hotel
at Centreville, and there ia a good opening for someone, as every steamer brings
some strangers.
The Gladys made the first trip to tho
landing Wednesday laat; on account of
the low water the steamer has only been
able to get within half a mile of the
lauding since about 1st December last,
but, as the river is rising, they will be
able to get up without any trouble.
NORTH ARM NOTES,
|Front Our Own Correspondent,}
The fine weather of the past few
weeks has been most favorable for
farmers, and, notwithstanding the season was very backward, plowing and
seeding will be pretty well through this
week.
The survey for the canal through the
centre of the island for draining pur*
poses, haB beon made, and the work
will shorty be commenced,
Tho gonial presence of Inspector Wilson appeared in our school Friday. He
spent about an hour examining tlio several classes and then left to visit the
school at South Arm. Since the line
weather haB sot in our school lias beeu
well attended, and Mr. Jamieaon is
proving himself a very successful teacher.
The people of Terra Nova will give a
social on Wednesday evening, May 7,
in the building they havo been fitting
up for religious service iu that immediate nieghborhood. There will be i.
short programme after refreshments,
and a pleasant time may be looked for.
The road to Vancouver bas become so
much improved that the stage iB again
on the route, running Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Those who cross the bridge must still
walk a plank. It seems too bad that a
work of bo much importance Bhould be
delayed for lack of necessary material.
The iron Ib furnished by tho Albion

COBRESPONDENCE.
RECKLESS B_.00_I.IU.
Editok Columbian'—Sir—I think it is
high time the authorities of our town
should put a stop to loose shooting in
the City limitB, especially with a ride.
Being out yesterday afternoon for a
stroll between the asylum and brickyard
property I was somewhat Btartled to
hear rifle shots in quick succession unpleasantly close to me. The farthest of
the bullets ranging scarcely twenty feet
from me. Then there waB a lull for a
moment or so during which I tried to
sec who the marksman was; but being
interrupted by the fun starting up
afresh, I dropped to the ground.. Fortunately for me I did so for just at that
moment a bullet from the second volley
sang so close to ino that had I remained!
standing 1 must undoubtedly have been,
hit. Mow this is not the Ilrst time this
sort of thing has happened me, and I
believo I am more than justified by the
above circumstance in bringing the
matter before the public. Not so much
for my poor self (though 1 value that
considerably too), but it might
lead to some really worthy person's hurt. Such " poor shooting
Bhould bo stopped by law. Let tho
party shooting hit what he aims at, or
quit the rifle. Should the use of it be
necessary, however, to their amusement,
let them go where they can't hurt anyone.
I shall feel greatly indebted to you if
this can bo inserted.
Yours truly,

Properties on terms to suit.
SAPPERTON.
Lots in the Sub-Division of Lot 2,
Suburban Block 4, from $200 per lot.
These lots are mostly cleared, and are very sightly, commanding an unsurpassed view of the Fraser River in one direction, and Queen's Park and the upper portion of the City in the
other. This property is only about one quarter of a mile frbm
the Brunette Mills, and is tho best locality in Sapperton either for
residence or speculation,
Western Addition.
A few blocks and lots in the Western Addition to the City of New Westminster, Sub-Division of Lot 172, formerly the White Estate.
This sub-division, consisting of GOO lots, was placed upon the
nwvket by us a short time ago, and so eager were purchasers to
buy that the entiro fiOO lots were sold out within ono month. Wo
are now offering tho abovo property at slightly advanced ratos on
behalf of former purchasers. Those who mistJorl the chance of
buying at first prices have yet an opportunity of investing at
prices that cannot fail to yield a good profit. We believe that
this is the best speculative property in tho City of New AVestmin
ster.
SURREY.
5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Municipality of Surrey, midway between the
Cities of New Westminster, B. O, and
Blaine, Wash., at from $30 to $40 per
acre.
This property is situated on the Hall's Prairie road, near the
junction of tho Langley Eoad, the Yale Road, and the Clovfir
Valley Road, within 500 yards of tho proposed.station of the New
Wostminster Southern Railway. The land is high and dry, inid
the soil is first-class. Surrey is ono of tho most prosperous sections of tho District of New Westminster, und is at present enjoying quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this prop-
erty will get tho value of their monoy in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at the same time promises an excellent
field for speculation.
NORTH  ARM.
145 aores iu Lot 155, near the North Arm Road,
about 2 1-2 miles -west of the New Westminster Oity
Post-office, at $160 per aore.
This is iiiio fortilo soil, chiefly prairie, and lies well. It
has becomo a maxim that cities grow westward, aud New Westminster is proving no exception to the rule. Oity lots west of
Edinburgh Street, along the North Ann road, have doubled in
value in less than a year, while acre tracts have, in the same
time, in some instances more than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to the Westerly City Boundary is
completed, the North Arm will become the best suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expected by many that
the route of the Electric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
section. Our shrewdest speculators are realizing the possibilities
of this portion of the City, and tho many sales of acre property
in the vicinity recently, indicate that land in the direction of the
North Arm is_ looked upon as one of tho best places for investment in the District.   Prices are bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of
Oity and Suburban Property, at moderate prioes. and
on fevorable terms, of whioh we invite examination.

THE DAILY COLUMBIAN
TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL 29, M90.
P0LICJ3   COUBT.
At the Police Court Monday morning,
Heuben Elly was charged with cruelty
to animals on the information of the
Chief of Police. AVrii. McKeonwas the
first witness sworn. He said he had
been much disturbed by the bellowing
of the calves on the wharf. The next
witness was the Chief of Police, who
said that the calves had remained on
the wharf from Friday evening until
Saturday evening, without food or water.
Elly said he brings calves down on tlie
Irving regularly and sells them three
hours afterwards, generally to Mr. Mana-
lian, the butcher, and therefore he is
not responsible for the animals after
having sold them. G. Murray testified
that the calves had been removed from
the wharf at 11:30 a. m. on Saturday.
The animals appeared to havo been fed
during their Btay on the wharf. Case
dismissed.
John Wagner, charged with having
been drunk and incapable, had been let
out on bail and forgot to appear in the
morning.   Bail forfeited.
Mary, a Chilliwack Indian, woman,
charged with# having been found iu a
state of intoxication, i, e. dead drunk,
within the City limits was, after plead*
ing guilty, fined $5 and one month'., imprisonment. The severity of the sentence was tempered for Mary, by ft hint
that her departure from town nny time
before next day would afford the court
a great deal of Balif faction. Mary smilingly went.
Flora Miller was charged with having
unlawfully placed rubbish on Cunningham street. The charge waB dismissed
with costs. •
Frank Mclnnes left $5 bail on Saturday to appear to-day, but his non-appearance led to the forfeiture of the
money Monday.
Zee Lee, a Chinaman, stole several
articles of underwear to the value of $10,
from John McGillvray, and was remanded from Saturday until investigations could be made. His Honor said
there did not appear to have been any
negligence or criminal intent on the
part of Lee.

The South Ann Service.
The South Arm eteamboat eervice
advocated by The Columbian a few
days ago, was quickly Beized by our
merchants as another opportunity of
extending the City's trade. Last night
a largely signed petition was laid before
the City Council, asking that body to
take the necessary steps to have the
service inaugurated. A committee has*
been appointed to consider the matter
and report to the Council at next meeting. The report, without doubt, will be
satisfactory to the general public, and
it may be confidently expected that the
new and necessary service will be regularly established within a few weeks.
The steamer taking the contract will, be
obliged to call at all stopping places on
the South Arm, including ladner's and
English's, thus placing the City iu daily
communication with all down river
ports,

A New Service.
The New Westminster Electric Supply Company is making arrangements
to bring into use in this City .what is
known in tho east as the City and District Telegraph and Messenger Service.
This very useful ayatem haa become indispensable in eastern cities and towns,
and it will become fully as popular here
when thoroughly established. The residence or place of business of subscribers to the service are connected by^vire
with the head office; and an Instrument
supplied with a number of "buttons" is
fixed in the establishment. These
"buttons" denote the service required,
such ob police, fire, cab or messenger,
and by pressing the proper indicator the
alarm is repeated at the central office
and the service immediately supplied.
Mr. J. H. Galbraith, manager of the
company, ia making a tour of the City
soliciting orders, and is meeting with
satisfactory support.
A   Sharp Capture,
About 0:30 o'clock yosterday morning
while Constable Sawyer was patrolling
his heaton Columbia street, near the
descent, ho met a Siwashe he met a
with a sack thrown over his shoulder
To an ordinary observer there was nothing nbout the Back to create suspicion,
but the constable is an old sportsman
and he scented a gamy flavor, which
caused him to order the Indian to open
the bag for inspection. The untutored
son of the forest was very loth to obey,
declaring it only contained H.ii-<!Jt-(!--..n.i.Jt
but on being further threatened finally
opened It and drew forth a package of
crackers', then he threw the sack away.
Constable- Sawyer went over to whore
the sack lay nnd searched its inmost re-
receaaea, and succeeded in bringing forth
a fine pair of mallard ducks and a saw
bill. This settled the Indian's guilt,
and in lose than quarter of an hour he
was in the Police Court charged with the
offence of shooting game out of season.
He pleaded not guilty and ignorance of
the law, but tho act of throwing the
birds away told heavily against him
nnd the magistrate Imposed a line of $10
aud coats (2, or iu default 10 days imprisonment. Constable Sawyer is to be
commended for the capture, and it is
to bo hoped the Inw will be strictly enforced in every caae of tho kind.

and hearty in a month orao as his nearest and dearest friends could wish.
(FBOK FIRST PAOE.)
very much pleased with the working of
the Stark Street ferry, Portland. The
bridge, which was near by was t_t much
more patronized than the ferfy, but
both of them did an enormous business.
Tlio ferry uud landings aro so admirably
constructed that not the slightest
tremble is experienced in getting on or
off the boat. Teams and passenger.,
patronized the ierry iu preference to the
bridge, and he had seen a string of
vehicles, about forty in number, waiting
to cross on the forry. Tlio president of
the Pacific Bridge Company, whom lie
had visited, told His Worship that a
bridge over the Fraser would cost, at
least, $200,000. He said ho would not
guarantee the bridge; any company thnt
did guarantee a bridgo could not have
very much credit. Ilia company would
do the best work they could, hut they
would not guarantee the work. Tlie
impression gained by His Worship, Aid.
Slides and Mr. T. J. Trapp, all of whom
visited Portland to-gother, w.ns, that a
good ferry would meet all the requirements of Westminster for some time to
come. The present ferry over the
Fraser had rather prejudiced people
against that style of transport, but the
Portland forry was a vastly different
affair. A cable to run the ferry would
cost about $500.    The ferry could be
S,crated quite us cheaply as the Kde
, and with infinitely greater safety.
Aid Johnson said that outside of the
Council ho had not heard one word in
favor of a forry and not one against the
bridge; everybody seemed to lie in
favor of the latter.
His Worship said if the people wont
over to Portland they would change
their ideas.
Aid. Johnson said bridges wore superceding ferries all ovor the world. He
did not think the people would stand a
ferry as against a bridge.
Aid, Sinclair said tho shifting sands of
tho bottom of the Fraser offered an almost insurmountable obstacle to a ferry.
Mr. Balfour's offer should bo carefully
weighed. It was a difficult thing to
decide; most of the peoplo wanted a
bridge or, at the very least, some substitute for the K de K. It wus time the
matter was settled.
Aid. McPhaden said he had been cal
dilating on this matter, and he offered
some brain-racking statistics thereon,
A ferry, nt the expiration of five years,
would be just as expensive as a $150,001)
bridge.
His Worship differed with the last
speaker; If the bridge were closed up
altogether it would still be costing $11 ,-
000 per annum ns interest.
Aid. McPhaden—Well, would not the
ferry money be costing interest, my dear
fellow?
His Worship ably showed how Westminster, at the present stage of her life,
could not afford a $150,000 bridgo. If
wo had a town of anything Ilk. our own
size on the other sido, instead of a thinly
settled farming district, it would not bo
so bad, but just now it was totally impracticable.
Aid. Johnson argued for tho bridge
thut the building of such a structure was
of more value to this city than all the
new streets in the city. The questions of
sewerage and water were easily disposed
of; the latter would be a paying thing
from the start; the former was ono of
the most easily settled of all, as this city
could be drained and fitted with a sewerage system with greater facility than
any other city on the Continent. He
was willing to stake every dollar he was
worth that a bridge was more preferable
for this city than the streets, sewerage
or water improvements.   (Applause)
His Worship aaid if Aid. Johnson
would show him the grounds upon which
ho based his opinions he would be most
happy to givo it his fullest consideration.

TO THE ELECTORS
New Westminster  District,
-   A Great Explorer Killed.
London, April 29.—The tragic death
of F. I.. James, the intrepid African
hunter and explorer has surprised and
shocked all who know of hiB career in
Africa. A cable deapatch from the WeBt
coaat briefly announces that he waa
killed by a wounded elephant while
hunting in the Gaboon country. The
James Brothers are best known for their
journey through the centre of Spmali-
land, south of the Gulf of Aden. Very
few white men had penetrated beyond
the seaboard fringe of thia country. It
ia, except part of Sahara, the most dangerous region in Africa to travel in. The
peoplo aro fanatical Moslems, and few
who have ventured into this country beyond the coast hills have escaped death.
The British consul at Berber, believing
the whole party would be killed, cabled
to England for permission to prevent
them from going inland. He received
permission a little too late to catch tlie
party. While in Bomaliland the expedition was in constant danger. The late
Mr. James wrote a book describing the
discoveries and hair breath escapes of
the expedition. He came out of Somale-
land unscathed, only to fall a victim to
an elephant on the other side of the
continent.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of our late
representative (the much-respected 1).
Chisholm) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay beforo yon
some of my views on tho leading questions which I consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.
I have been asked what I mean whon
I announce myself as a Liberal-Conservative; I reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residence of over 30 years in thiB Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has had the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
mo liberal ideas, therefore I claim r am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owiii£ to the
fact that party linea are not defined in
British Columbia ns they are in the older
provinces, I consider that our representatives are not in duty bound to givo a
throvgh-thick-and-thin support to any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
good meaaurea which may be brought
before them, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province iu particular, and
should a measure come before them
which they consider in any way detrimental to the interests of this Province
they should take their Btand like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, and iu many cases the articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Waro and other articles are brought from the States, al
though the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and are met with such heavy duties
that heads of families in this Province
pay moro than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces
Wc have had example to the point dur
ing the last three months. If we had
not received a good supply from California there would have been a meat
famine; as it is we are now and have
been paying 25 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the same state of
affairs is likely lo obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for tho lust eleven years
our stock raisers are little better prepared to meet hard winters than they
were before, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
N. P. tiro the manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade" but as that seems out of the
question,! would advocate "Reciprocity
in many articles which are at present in
the Tariff lists, and! hope iu the near
future to sec Commercial Union between
Canada and tho United States, as I
think it would be beneficial to both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go down so deep into his
pocketa to buy what he needs to eat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
have a revenue to carry on the affairs of
the country, but I would havo '.'luxuricB"
pay more and get at the pockets t of the
richer classes who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of the late Mr. Chisholm, he was unable
to be in his place this session, nnd very
little during tho previous otiCj so we of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before the notice of
the Houso. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
been in hia seat, I do not think the Postmaster-General would have been left so
much iu the dark concerning tho necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower FraBer as he seems to havo been
when he proposed to cut off the mail
subsidy from that important route, and
there are other places in the District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider should receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope that in the near future our
District will reach that point that we
may loook for it to be divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, and when the census
returns are in I.think the necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation.
The protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also tho works for improving
the channel at the Sandheada, iu view
of tho expected increase in our Shipping
interests,
I consider the Province should have
control over all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District in particular, 1 feel should receive more than
ordinary attention,
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from the mouth
of the Serpentine to Frasor River, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from the Fraser River to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to me,
Immigration, I consider, Bhould he
fostered, and encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coining here fast
enough; I would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, na many would
be disappointed and go away dssguated
and probably give our glorious Province
a baa name.
Thero are many other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would mako
this address too long. I hope to see as
many aa possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
.ersonal canvass and will send due no-
ice of timo and placo of meetings.
During my long residence in tho Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have

Stanley In England.
Dover, April 26.—H. M. Stanley arrived here from Brussels at 8:35 this
afternoon and waa greeted by cheering
thousands. The local mismanagement
of the reception arrangements was such
that great confusion occurred at the pier,
The reporters defied the police and a
fight at one time seemed imminent.
Some of Mr. Stanley's friends, including
at Loudon. Kastem Dachet, the Turkish
Mr. New, the American Consul-General
Ambassador to Great Britain, and Lord
Wolseley, were unable to board the
steamer in consequence of the prevailing
disorder. Stanley replied to the municipal address with a few words of thanks.
At 4:05 p. m., he started for London.
Thousands of persons assembled at
Victoria station this evening to welcome
Stanley, and waited patiently for hours
in the pouring min for the arrival of his
train. Several hundred who were fortunate enough to be provided with
tickets were admitted into the station,
hut there were some ticket holders who
were unable to make their way through
the crowds nnd had to share their discomforts. There wns considerable disappointment that Stanley did not make
a speech notwithstanding the obvious
■reason for his not doing so. The great
explorer was received with cheers, and
everybody did his utmost to do him
honor. He entered a carriage with Sir
Francis De Winton and Baroness Bur?'
dette Coutts, and us the open vehicle
was slowly driven away he was again
cheered. He looks thin, though his
health is excellent. His most striking
feature is his hair, which is white and
bushy and litis the appearance of a wig.
Newspapers all print leaders lauding his
exploits and services and extending to
him the welcome of the nation.
