in t treat I iic Work* on Africa.
London, May 5.—Following Stanley's
book, "In Darkest Africa," Mr. Jephson's
book will appear. This work will describe nine months' life with Emin in
the absence of Stanley, besides giving
another view of the expedition. Jeph-
son writes in a tone much friendlier to
Stanley than Bonny's narrative, because
he knows a great deal more than Bonny
did. The latter boat, coverlm. then0*101}
of the ti'iTime months of starvation and
fighting at camp Ariiwliiini, blames
Stanley for the disastrous loss of life
which occurred during this part of the
expedition, and holds up the great explorer as au unscrupulous adventurer,
reckless of the lives of his colleagues
and as a braggart who suppresses
truth for the sake of glorifying himself.
Bonny ie the sole survivor of tho roar
uonf. and he has some of tlie most
iramatic episodes of the expedition to
narrate. He does not spare Stanley in
his frantic outburst of anger, and alleges
thnt the leader has been trying to keep
him in the background.

Barcelona, May 3.—At midnight to-
the strikers again assembled in the
streets hy thousands. The troops ordered them to disperse, but the mob
answered by firing revolvers at the soldiers. Tho troops returned the fire,
wounding three of the rioters and then
charged upon the crowd with fixed bayonets, dispersing them and wounding
many. A large number of the fleeing
mob were arrested. Ono of the strikers
arrested yesterday waB arraigned in
court to-day and sentenced to hard labor
for lite for wounding a policeman. Five
others were each sentenced to 10 years
imprisonment at hard labor for preventing non-strikers from working.
I'oj.i.lnr Carnot.
Paius, May 8,— It is an unfortunate
time for the enemies of the French Republic, whether Monarchists, or Anarchists, to endeavor to stir up strife.
President Carnot was never more popu-1
lar. During hia southern tour ho won
all hearts and the enthusiasm attending
his reception everywhere haB not been
surpassed since the days of Napoleon.
This enthusiasm was not a tribute to
Carnot alone, although lib is highly respected, but also to the Government of
which he is head and he was politic and
Fiatriotic enough to construe it iu that
ight. The miserable alleged plot to
restore the Bourbons was promptly
stopped before it had obtained any serious headway and excites ridicule rather
than indignation. The Due de Voalles,
however, shows his prejudice against
democratic institutions In a two-volume
book in which he endeavors to prove
thnt popular government is a failure in
tlie United States. He avers that the
" American democracy, although in possession of the most mngnificicnt scone of
action that tho political idealist could
conjure up—a whole continent endowed
with vast natural wealth, no neighbors
to interfere with its peaceful development and so spacious in its dimensions
as to be free from the labor problems of
older societies, yet after tho lapse of a
century, presents all the vices and defects
of the Old World civilization, together
with n corruption that the Old World
never witnessed." Tho Duke concludes,
therefore, that popular government must
inevitably provo a failure.
Fire at Itavelstoke.
Revki/toke, B. C, May 3.—Eight
houses with their furniture, stock, etc.,
have been burned to the ground. The
fire waB first discovered in the dwelling
house of Mr. John Patton at 5.30 p.m.,
and rapidly communicated to the others.
The loss Ib estimated us follows: John
Patton, house and furniture totally destroyed, about $1,000; James Liberty,
contractor, house and furniture, loBt
about $200 cash, the total will foot up
close on f 1,400; Sam. Hamilton, dwelling house and furniture, about $000.
Kwong Wong, general store, about $800;
Guy Barber, jeweller, saved his stock,
building destroyed, loss about $500; E,
8. Wilson is the largest loser, saving
only a small portion of his stock, while
his fine new store was totally destroyed,
His loss cannot bo far short of $5,000.
Jim Hing, wash house, building totally
destroyed, loss about $250. There Is no
insurance. The origin of the fire is unknown. Tho fire Ib now under control
at 9 p.m.	
Bribery   Tried.
San Fbahoiboo, May 8.—Probably the
greatest expose that has taken placo in
Chinese matters since the Exclusion
Act went iuto effect was made last night,
and tho facts wero given out thiB morning. Driven to their wit's end to defeat
the Exclusion Act, a most desperate
game was sought to he played by the iu
transit passengers ou board the Gaelic,
which arrived a few days ago., Tho effort was without success, but it shows
that the oft repeated assortion that all
Chinamen that left this port in transit
to Mexican ports, would reach the United States, is unmistakably true. The
expose of tlie present plan is due to the
shrewdness of the Customs Inspector,
J. E. Williams, who told the following
story: "Last night, between the hours
of 9 aud 10 o'clock, while I was patrolling the deck on duty, I was approached
by one of the men in transit to Guay-
mas, aud with little hesitancy the China-

Editok Columbian.—Sir.--May I again
trouble you with a few remarks. I must
first say that I give in to no one in my
admiration of this beautiful city, but
while all around seems fair, and we are
busy clearing streetB and now making
Srogress with the water works, are we
oing right to risk the future health and
consequently the welfare of the city for
want of sewers. If some well laid plan
was made it could be carried out while
the streets were opened for water pipes,
and so save a large expense to the community and would be far more important to the health and prosperity of the
place than a bridge could be, and I feel-
sure that were all the inhabitants canvassed they would say "the health of
the city first." When complete, which
with good streets, good water, electric
lights and tramways well sewered, what
city in British Columbia would compare
with it? While on the subject could not
some trees bo planted iu the streets;
nothing is more pleasing to the eye or
more attractive to visitors.
Yours truly:
He Amen.

Imurnnco Notes.
The cheque for more than half a million of money Ib a curiosity to most people outside of bank employees. But a
cheque from a singlo person or firm for
such a sum in life assurance premiums
is a still rarer thing. We have seen a
fac simile of a cheque for $678,345 received by the Mutual Life Insurance
Company of New York for insurance effected upon the lives of five members of
the Havemoyer family, of Now York.
The insurance, covered by the premium
payment of $578,845, was upon thefllvcs
of Mr. Theo. A. Havomeyer, the well-
known merchant, and four members of
his family. Tho policies solected were
the ten-year guarantee contracts of the
Mutual Life, with tho annuity feature
added. Each policy was for the sum of
$100,000, and the Insured chose to make
but one payment, thus commuting the
cost.— Monetary Times,
A Perilous Trip.
John Thompson and H. H. Moody arrived Thursday evening, having left
Fish Creek mine at three o'clock tho
same morning. They have had sonic
thrilling experiences with snow slides,
which are coming down every day. It
is unsafe to travel after the sun rises
and It shines very early in the morning
on some of those tall peaks. Thompson
was on snow shoes on the 20th April and
saw a slide coming directly on his path.
He tried to get out of its course, falling
down in his efforts, and barely escaped.
Moody, John Ritchie and a dog were
near tho mouth of the tunnel, April 18.
Ritchie ran ucrosB the canyon nnd
caught hold of somo bushes whore ho
hung susponded till the slide swept past
him. Moody wus caught by the snow,
one leg wedged iu so he could not extricate It, and although he did not lose his
lifo he felt for several days as If he had
boon pounded by both John L- and the
Australian negro. Tito poor dog wbb
killed, and the waste dump, snow nud
rocks, nine feet in depth, swept into
Fish Creek, a mile and a half distant.'

Serious Labor Troubles on the Continent Still Continue and Further Trouble Feared.
A Monitor   Froceiiloii.
London, May 5.—This day should become memorable iu the history of demonstrations on the part of the laboring
classes of England, for it has never been
equalled since the days of the monster
outpourings of people which characterized tho reform movement of 1807. A
most moderate estimate of the gathering
is half ii million, of which 200,000 came
in procession and 800,000 gathered at
will. There were 150 bands of music in
the processions aud the affair was a
three-headed ono, the largest number of
men being under the leadership of the
Trades Council, a distinctively non-
socialistic body. A smaller number acknowledged tho leadership of tho
Central .Committee, which leans
strongly toward Socialism, while a
third and smaller division appeared
under the control of the out and out
socialistic organization, known as the
social democratic federation. All possibility of strife or friction among the
various bodies had been avoided by careful previous arrangements, and, for
once, the people of all shades of opinion
on the labor question joined in the common movement. The trades council
procession broadly led; and the foremost
part was hardly better than a straggling mob. These forlorn hosts made no
attempt to keep step, even when within
the hearing of the music. Despite their
miserable appearance they manifested
great good nature and indulged in much
rude joking among themselves, their
gorgeous banners were in odd contrast
with the evident poverty of the bearere.
There were over 200 of these emblems,
adorned with all manner of mottoes.
One was noticed having a good portrait
of Gladstone on one side and on the
other the motto "we kill ourselves to
feed ourselves." The music, ub a rule,
was more noisy than artistic. In passing Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace, the bands banged loudly
aB if in defiance of those aristocratic
precincts, and it is probable that many
a shudder of dismay was thus caused
which could not have been produced by
clubs und stones. The central committee procession moved in much tho best
form, and was made up of the more well
to-do set of workmen. When all in tbe
march reached the park, the scone was
imposing. The plainness of tho
garb characterizing the assemblage
as a whole,;; was largely offset
by the gay banners and by tho surprising prevalence of personal decorations
in shape of bright ribbons, etc. Tho
park belt, three quarters of 11 inilo long
by half a mile wido, was crammed with
a solid mass of people, while all the
streets and ways leading to the park
wero more or* less congested. White
chapel district seemed to have disgorged a considerable fraction of its unhappy
denizens to swell the throng. The crowd
ebbed and flowed und instead of one
meeting thero was properly speaking 11
continuous succession of audiences.
This was largely tho necessary result of
the paucity of tne speakers. It was impossible for half to hear what was said
aud in fact no one seemed to care about
listening; gathering together and exchanging greetings and opinions seemed
to be the idea uppermost. The marching
or coming nnd going continued from two
o'clock until after nightfall. The best
speakers were those furnished by the
Central Committee, including the more
noted of the moderate socialistic leaders.
Groups of marchers continued to arrive
long after darkness hud put an end to
the speaking. Tho day wits an ordorly
one despite the thronged condition of
the streets. The police did not interfere in any way with tho processions or
meetings, except to put a veto upon the
attempt to lead un elephant through
the streets ns a part of tho turnout.
The only arrests wore those of thieves,
who were out in force, their prey being
naturally the spectators on thesido-
walks, rather than the humble marchers in the streets. Altogether the
demonstration was a creditable one to
the great eight-hour movement.
Seafarers'  Hani ships.
Yesterday evening a sealing boat containing two men, east away from the j
sealer Henry Dennis, Capt. Lavender,
reached this port after a rough time for
nearly three weeks. The two men were
Tom Robinson, seal hunter, and John
Awco, boat puller, who were part of the
crew of the schooner. On the Mth of
April they were hunting seals to the
northward and westward of Cape Flattery. A Btrong breeze and thick fog
came up and the men lost sight of their
vessel, and all night of the 14th drifted
about at the mercy of the winds and
waves. A rough time was had, but luckily their boat was a staunch one. They
drifted thus for three days, when they
sighted the sealer Theresa of this port
and boarded her. Provisions were
obtained and the weather being mild
the two men made u start for Neah Bay
ulong the hind, ns the Theresa was too
crowded to keep them on board. They
made Neah Bay safely, and procured
more provisions und then started for
Victoria, stopping over at Sooke, Today the castaways visited American
Consul Myers, and their Immediate
wants wore 111.tended to. Although
they must have passed through some
hard experiences, the two men looked
hearty and strong, but bear traces of
the battle with the winds aud scu. At
the time they lost their vessel the
Dennis had 171 seal skins on bonrd.—
Friday's Times.
Columbia   Hirer Salmon.
A Portland despatch of the 28th nit.,
says: Thero haB been a fine run of salmon
in the Columbia during the past week,
and although the differences between the
cannery men and the Fishermen's
Union has not been settled, three canneries on the lower river and two at the
Cascades are running and have had
more fish than they can handle. The
canneries ou the lower river have been
supplied by non-union fishermen, principally ranchers along the river, who
set nets out and have been making good
pay selling salmon ut 75 cents or 8 centB
a pound. There has been some net-
cutting going on, which is charged to
union fishermen. One man had four
nets cut loose a night or two since, and
is now watching Ins property with the
avowed intention of shooting any one
found meddling with it. The canneries

A Startling Statement.
London, May 5.—Tho statement that
only about one hundred thousand square
ralfes of land suitable for sottlomoiit by
emigrants remain in the United States
has como llko a revelation to Englishmen
Who havo been clinging to tlio belief
that Amorlca was only half settled. Tho
statement has just been mado beforo n
select coinmittoo of the Houso of Commons on colonization, together with tho
announcement that in Australia thoro
nrc 500,000 square miles nnd iu Manitoba 400,000 squoro miles for colonization purposes. Records show thnt since
1MB, -'.,501)0,000 peoplo have loft
the United Kingdom, two thirds
of those emigrants entoring the
States. Since 1870, against 3,050,000
British people who had emigrated there,
wero nearly a million immigrants into
this country. Those figures have convinced tho committee thnt emigration
from tlio Brltisli Isles is no longer as desirable as formerly, and tho committee
will recommend ill their report thnt
stimulated and persistent emigration bo
discontinued except to Aiistrnllii.
JniiieH   Way Flats.
After the Inst regular meeting of the
City Council, at which it whb announced
that the James Bay mud Huts wore un.
conditionally the property of the city,
Aid. McKillicau wns informed by a prominent real estate man, of Government
street, that if the council wished he
would, for a local syndicate, purchase
the mud flats, build the retaining wall,
OIL in tlie reclaimed area, and pay to tlte
municipal corporal ion tlie sum of $150,-
000.   Aid. Harrison had formerly proposed that the council take the work iu
hand for the people, procuring a loan of
$58,000 for the purpose from tlio people,
and selling the land reclaimed at the
highest market price.   HiB estimate of
the value of the land, although no survey had been made, was between $160,-
000 and $200,000.   No sooner had  the
first pushing real estate man made the
proposition abovo referred to, -than a
business rival volunteered to do the
same work at tho same figure.
Yesterday Aid. McKillicau was approached by agent No. 1. who stated
that he had reconsidered his proposition,
and if the council said the word, would
build the sea wall and givo the city a
check for $200,000 for the flat.   This
generous offer will receive the serious
consideration of the Aldernmnic Board
at its next sossion.   Several of tlie council aro inclined to tho opinion that it
would pay the city beBt to follow out
Aid. Harrison's original scheme, others
think that whatever offer is accepted
will have to bo in tho form of a successful tendor.   In any case, no action can
be taken without ii vote of tho people.
Tlie sutvoy of tlio flats was commenced
yesterday, and when it is completed a
more intelligent opinion of the subject
can bo expreaBeu by all.—Saturday's

The following letter  penned by a

who places bor letter before the public
in the hope that some one may be able
to holp her in her search for her lost
father.   The letter reads as follows:
Norwich, Ont., April 14th, 1800.
Kind Sin,—You are a friend to the

there was sailing on the Pacific ocean a
man by the name of William Uotan, and
I also heard that last summer under his
directions a cargo of indigo was unloaded
at Vancouver. In the first place my
father went away from homo for his
health some timo ago. My mother married again against her mother's wish.
Father used to doctor, nnd sometimes
signed his name Dr, W. C. Rotan; but
now he is a captain on the Pacific ocean.
Oh. Bir, if you clmnco to ho u father, you

my father only know the wrong that has
been done him. I am tho only daughter left.   I had one sister, and she died
n noblo Christian death. Mother has
also left this world to bo forever with

My mother fairly

that no man who loved his children as
he did would ever forsake them. Since
my dear mother died I have learned
that his letters to her were taken out,

the Council should take immediate steps
for putting on a proper ferry, in accordance with the report and the recommendation last week of Alderman Shiles,
chairman of the Board of Works, and of
the Mayor, on the subject. When the
ferry has been got under way, the bridge
matter can be thoroughly looked into,
and such steps taken as will ensure beyond question, a proper bridge, to be
undertaken and completed when the
City is in a better position in every
respect to do bo than is the case at
THE DAILY COLUMBIAN
MONDAY EVENING, MAY 6, ISM.
PROVINCIAL  EXHIBITION.
If the preparations last year for the
Provincial Exhibition in this city were
on a much grander scale and more creditable than ever attempted before in the
Province, the preparations that are being made this year for the fair of next
fall mny by comparison bo termed magnificent. The buildings in Queen's
Park are being enlarged to their full
size by the addition of the two wings required to completo tho original design,
thus doubling the capacity of the building; the stock yards and sheds will receive substantial additions, bo as to accommodate a much larger amount of
stock; and before the dato of the exhibition the entire grounds and the park
as well will be vastly Improved and
rendered more attractive and the re-
creation and sporting grounds put i)
better shape.
The prize lists, a very important item
it is unnecessary to premise, in connection with the success of a provincial or
a less pretentloua exhibition, will be
thoroughly revised by the directors of
the Agricultural Association, and the
number and amount of tho prizes largely
increased. From Mr. T. R. Pearson,
the Indefatigable secretary of the Association, and Mr. Thos. Cunningham,
M.P.P., tho enthusiastic and pushing
prealdent.we learn that preliminary work
on the prize lists has already commenced, and that these will be prepnrcd
on a much more munificent scale than
last year, and that no offort will be
spared throughout to make the exhibition this fall excel the very creditable
one of lust yeur by as much as it was
superiorto any Provincial agricultural
and industrial fair that preceded it,
BRIDGE OR FERRY AGAIN.
If the average reader is tired of the
subject, we can't blame him, but it is
one* nevertheless, of sufficient importance to warrant a good deal of thrashing
out, if thereby a wise decision can be
in any way promoted or expedited.
The introduction of the pontoon bridge
into the discussion may be said to have
somewhat complicated the issue. The
merits of this puiticular form of bridge
have been pretty fully and ably set
forth by our correspondents, Mr. W. E,
Bovill and " Pons Pontia." A perusal
of their communications on the subject
should, we think, convince anyone not
otherwise prejudiced that a pontoon
bridge would be a better investment, iu
a good many particulars, for tho city nt
this luncture than a $160,000 wooden
structure. Several advantages of the
pontoon bridge over tho Howe trusB
wooden bridgo proposed by Mr. Balfour
are most conspicuous and obvious. In
the first place it could be constructed at
one-third the coat of the other, and in
about a quarter of the time. Then,
when constructed, for all the practical
purposes of a bridge, the pontoon article
would be superior to the cheup
pier concern. It would ho incomparably Btronger, safer und more durable,
and would cost less to maintain and
keep in repair. As to obstructing navigation, there is not much to choose between the two. The $150,000 pier
bridge, according to Mr. Balfour's proposal, would have nn elevation above
the river level of only eighteen feet at
low water; the pontoon bridge would
give a headway of ten feet all tho year
round.
The preponderance of advantages
will thus be seen to bo In favor of tho
pontoon bridge as against the other,
while one serious disadvantage lies
against both, thnt of being too much of
au obstruction to navigation. Any
bridge at so important a point as thia,
where the interests of navigation nre so
large and constantly increasing, should
be a high level bridge, ono that would
give headway for all river steamers,
and necessitate the working of the draw
for sea going vobscIb only,,on their way
to and from the mills nndthcennnorics.
Such a bridge would have to be a much
better and moro costly structure than
tho ono proposed by Mr. Balfour.
Tho pontoon bridge, notwithstanding
its many and substantial advantages, us
shown, ovor a cheap and low-level pior
structure, for this sumo reason, obstructing nit the river craft, with the exception of the smaller boats, could only be
considered as a temporary expedient for
a proper bridge, when the City had attained tbo necessary means, nnd
the traffic had assumed such
proportions, aB to justify tho undertaking. In tho light of it being a temporary
expedient, then, and at the same time a
hindrance to navigation, the question Ib
very pertinent: Why spend (60,000 or
f60,00ll on a pontoon bridge, when an
expenditure of |20,000 or $30,000 will
establish a flrst-claBs steam ferry, which
for nil practical purposes will meet the
present demands of traffic as well as the
bridge, aud will not interfere in the
least with navigation, and with the additional comparison in favorof the forry,
that it would continue to be of uso
even after a proper bridgo had been constructed, while the capital expenditure,
at least, on the temporary bridgo would
be a loss?
Having thus shown, we think, in a
reasonable manner, that the true policy
of the city is to adopt the ferry proposal
at this time, in preference lo either
of the bridge propositions that havo
boen mooted (and in preference we
might add, under all the circumstances,
to any bridge proposal that might bo
made, becauso a ferry must be put on in
any evont beforo a proper bridge could
be built and put in worklug ordor), wo
would, on behalf of the ratepayers, and
the Important Interests Involved'on both
Bides of the river, urge thnt no more
time should be wasted in talk, but that
A FACT ABOUT HEAVY BUILDINGS.
Wrm the increasing size and weight
of modern office buildings, says Engineering, there come not only serious
problems ot safe and economical construction but the still more difficult
question of how to prevent damage to
adjoining structures, not merely from
undermining of foundations, which can
be avoided by suitable underpinning,
but from the actual compression of the
aoil, If any one will take the trouble,
continues the journal mentioned, to examine the old and comparatively light
buildings alongside of which some high
and heavy structure has recently been
erected, the chances are that he will
find the old buildings more or less damaged by thoir new neighbor, and
cracked walls and sills, and especially
cracked lintels over the nearest windows,
will show that the old wall next tho
more recent structure has heen carried
bodily downward. As before intimated,
this settlement in most cases Ib not
caused by any defect-in, or Injury to,
the foundation of the old building, but
by the fact that the heavier structure
has compressed the soil and taken the
lighter one down with it.
As the evil is progressive, increasing
as the new building goes on, and for
some time after it is finished, it cannot
be provided against once for all, but the
remedy must be progressive also, and
the only way to prevent the injury is to
keep the old wall wedged or screwed up
while the new one goes down. The only
instance we kpow of, says Engineering,
where thiB has been done ia in the case
of a large building in Chicago, where
the soil is so compreseiblc that such a
building iB expected to settle three or
four inches during construction, and
where one fine tall building has had one
corner carried down four or five inches
by a heavier building alongside, with
the result of very badly cracking the
older structure from top to bottom
through the nearest line of windows.
To avoid such a disaster the wall of the
old building, some seven stories high,
next which the new building just mentioned Ib being put up, is temporarily
supported on screws, and is by them
kept slightly above its normal position,
Bo as to allow for settlement between
times. These screws will support the
old wall for some six months after the
building is finished, and until all settlement is completed.
The  Hatiqut Dyke,
A correspondent of the Vancouver
World writes: "There is considerable
speculation being indulged In at present
in connection with the Matsqui dyke,
The belief is that the present season
will witness a repetition of the high
water of 1882. The river is already
rising. In any event the Matsqui Lund
Company will make the dyke a success,
for the money already spent is not going
to be lost or thrown away, It is believed that the prairie alone is worth $500,-
000. This would be a valuable asset of
itself. Once the durability of the dyke
is tested and found to be satisfactory
the lands will then be sold and snapped
up as quickly as they are placed on the
market. That this will become one of
the most important and prosperous settlements of the Province iB a foregone
conclusion."

at the undermentioned Prices, the following
Properties, on terms to suit.
SAPPERTON.
Lots in the Sub-Division of Lot 2,
Suburban Block 4, from $200 per lot.
These lots are mostly cleared, and are vory sightly, com.
manding an unsurpassed view of the Fraser River in one direc
tion, and Queen's Park and the upper portion of the Oity in the
other. This property is only about one quarter of a mile from
the Brunette Mills, and is. the best locality in Sapperton either for
residence or speculation.
Western Addition.
A few blocks and lots in the Western Addition to the City of New Westminster, Sub-Division of Lot 172, formerly the White Estate.
This sub-division, consisting of 600 lots, was placed upon the
market by us a short time ago, and so eager were purchasers to
buy that the entire 600 lots were sold out within one month. We
aro now offering the above property at slightly advanced rates on
behalf of former purchasers. Those who missed the chance of
buying at first pricos have yet an opportunity of investing at
prices that cannot fail to yield a good profit. Wo believe that
this is the best speculative property in the City of New Westmin
ster.
SURREY.
5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Municipality of Surrey, midway between the
Cities of New Westminster, B. C, and
Blaine, Wash., at from $30 to $40 per
acre.
This property is situated on tho Hall's Prairie road, near the
junction of the Langley Road, tho Yale Road, and the Clover
Valley Road, within 500 yards of the proposod station of the Now
Westminstor Southern Railway. Tho land is high and dry, and
the soil is first-class. Surrey is ono of the most prosperous sections of the District of New Westminster, and is at present enjoying quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this property will get tho valuo of their monoy in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at tho same timo promises an excellent
field for speculation.
NORTH  ARM.
146 aores in Lot 165, near the North Arm Road,
about 2 1-2 miles west of the New Westminster Oity
Post-office, at $150 per aore.
This is lino tortile soil, chiefly prairie, and lies well. It
has become a maxim that cities grow westward, and New Westminster is proving no oxcoption to the rule. City lots wost of
Edinburgh Street, along tho North Arm road, have doubled in
value in loss than a year, while acre tracts have, in tho same
time, in some instances more than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to tho Westorly City Boundary is
completed, the North Arm will become the best suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expectod by many that
the route of the Eleotrio Railway to Vancouvor will traverse this
suction. Our shrewdest speculators are realizing tho possibilities
of this portion of tho City, and the many sales of acre property
iu the vicinity recently, indicato that land in the direction of the
North Arm is looked upon as ono of tho bost places for invest-
mont in the District.    Pricos 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 favorable terms, of whioh we invite examination.

THE OITY OP PARIS ACCIDENT.
Concise Statement of the Accident and
It* Came, by an Authority
A representative of the London Engineer visited the starboard engine room of
the City of Paris after she was docked at
Liverpool, which port she made with
great difficulty on account of the serious
and rather mysterious accident that
occurred in her engine 'room, a few
weeks ago, while crossing the Atlantic.
He reports as follows:
"We examined the engine room carefully before anything had been removed.
The result of our examination was to
show that everything that could he
broken had been broken; what could
not be broken waB bent, twisted, or distorted. Nothing so complete in the way
of a breakdown had before been seen.
The explosion of a great shell might
work such havoc in an ironclad.
"Descending to tho crank platform!
crawling under and climbing over a
heap of fragments, wo find some curious
things. The top cylinder cover seems
to be at the bottom of everything. The
A frames have apparently disappeared
bodily. The connecting rod is still
coupled to the crank pin. Tlie big end
is intact, but the rod, about 14 inches
in diameter in the middle, is bent. The
piston rod and ui-oms head are still
coupled to the connecting rod and lie
folded back along tbo tail rod, which is
bent like a bit of wire nearly in a semicircle.
"One side of the condenser has been
torn out. The tubes are all displaced,
and a good many of them flattened. The
air pump levers are literally rolled up
like bits of ribbon. On the side of a
part of the cylinder is a great crack, but
the metai still holds together in a way
to demonstrate toughness in no erdinarv
degree.
"But the ruin is not confined to the
engine room. The great screw shaft, 21
inches in diameter and over 100 feet
long, has been ripped up out of its bearings from one end of the screw tunnel to
the other, and then dropped back again.
All the cap bolts are smashed, A great
rent is torn in the bulkhead. Where
the shaft passed through it, the half
inch steel plate has been bent and buckled like a bit of paper.
"The smashing of the condenser waB
followed by an enormous rush of water
into the engine room. The condenser
lies low in the ship, considerably under
the water line. It w»b supplied by
Gwynne's centrifugal pumps, drawing
water through a copper pipe nearly two
feet in diameter. The pumpB and. condenser were wrecked. The water, of
course, rushed iu like a cataract through
the broken pipes. Two holes were made
in the bulkhead between the engine
rooms.
"The engineers did all thoy could to
stop these noles, but they were ultimately driven out of the port engine room
by the rising water. The screw shaft
was ripped up out ot its bearings from
end to end. Then it dropped again, but
in lifting it tore up the alter bulkhead
and left a large aperture through which
the water rushed, filling the dynamo
room and screw alley. Not a drop of
water got into tho'boiler room. The
rush of steam into the room was for the
moment tremendous, but the engineers,
dashed into the engine room aud screwed
down the stop valvo with commendable
courage and promptitude."
"As to the cause of the accidents, experts are satisfied that something in the
engine did not give away first, but that
the sequence of the events was aB follows :"
"The brass liner on the taiUhaft
burst."
"Then tho Hguuni-vita. strips were
torn out, bringing metal to me.tal."
"Then the tailsliaft ground away the
liner in the stern bracket,"
"Then the steel shaft ground away itself, and the bracket and shaftdropped."
"Then the continual bending action
which took place resulted in the shaft
breaking just where it came out of the
steam tube."

future, conduct it himself. He is introducing tlio latest improvements and
contrivances in the dental line,including
apparatus for administering laughing

Laid, to Rest.
The funeral of the late Uriah Nelson
took place at Victoria at 2 o'clock yesterday from hia late residence to the
cathedral. There was an immense gathering of people both at the house and at
the church, and the procession was one
of the largest seen in Victoria for a long
time. The members of the I. O. O. F.,
of which the deceased waa an active
member, turned out in large force, and
performed the customary rites over the
grave. After the services at the church
the procession reformed and proceeded
to Rosb Bay cemetery where the body
was interred.
A Labor Council*
At the last meeting of the Typograph-
ical Union, No. 236, Mr. O. O. Steuart
was elected Secretary-treasurer in the
place of Mr. S. Graham who lately left
the city. Three delegates were appointed to meet delegates from the Labor
League and Brotherhood of Carpenters,
on Wednesday night, to take into consideration the advisability of forming a
Labor Council, similar to the one lately
organized at Vancouver. The proposed
council will govern all matters relating
to labor, the length of a day's work,
wages, etc., and it is expected that the
united action,of the different trades will
result in benefitting the whole.

What's O'clock?
Yesterday at half-past twelve, noon,
Captain Peele received direct from the
astronomer royal, Greenwich Observatory, England, the actual mean time at
that point. The difference in time
between Greenwich and Westminstor is
exactly eight hours, eleven minutes and
thirty-throe Secondo,    Tho telegram nan
despatched at 8.30 p. m. Greenwich time
and was received here 12.30 p. in., occupying not more than quarter of a
Becond in transmission; the distance is
about six thousand fivo hundred miles.
The cable was connected with the laud
lines and no hindrance was experienced. As Westminster Ib in
longitude 120 west, that makes
ub geographically just eight hours from
Greenwich. The O. P. R. haB adopted
the new standard time to the system.
Captain Peele has been busy giving the
time of day to dozens of eager enquirers
and for a while there can be no dispute
on the head of correct time as many of
the city clocks have beeu adjusted to
run exactly with Greenwich standard.
quently not in a condition to notice anything so unuBual as a noliceman in
civilian attire. The second said he was
so excited that he did not notice the
presence of an officer, and further that
there might have been any number present for all he could say to the contrary.
The questiou now is, Why is Chief
Pearce taking bo much trouble to prove
an alibi for his force in this case? Would
it not have been the moat proper aud by
long odds the wisest plan for him to
have come to this office and corrected the report (if a correction
wis necessary) in a quiet way?
Ccnstable Carty's name is introduced as
having been a long distance from the
CI sveland hotel when the fight took
plr.ee, but Constable Carty did not lay
thj information before the magistrate,
and we are quite convinced that he did
not see the fight. At the same time this
do^Bnot alter the fact that a member
of the police force waa in clone vicinity
to where the fight took place, aud saw
at least a portion of the battle. The
fir .t report of The Columbian wast correct, despite all assertions of the chief to
the contrary, and had there not been excellent authority for the statement published, it would not have appeared.

Favorable Impressions.
Mr. D. H, Cameron, of Vnncouver, accompanied by Mr. James Kendall, of
this city, and Mr. A. Norton and P. T.
Baldwin, tourists from the east, have
just returned from a trip up the Fraser
as far as Chilliwack. These latter gentlemen are residents of tbe far famed
eastern townships of the Province _ of
Quebec, their homes being at Coaiti-
cook. From the favorable description
they give of their impressions of tho
valley of the FraBer, the people of this
District need not fear comparison with
the oldcBt and best settled portions of
the eastern provinces. They were
pleased with everything they saw and
particularly praised the str. Delaware,
on which boat thoy took passage, and
the boats officers, whom they Bay they
found to he social, accomodating, and
anxious to entertain their passengers
and furnish them every information at
their command.
Mr. Cameron is tho patenee of the
toredo proof, a new composition now
being tested at the city wharf, Vancouver. He claims that hia invention is a
positive safeguard against tho toredo
worm, and if the experiments now being
made verify his claims he can very soon
be the possessor of a large fortune.
The Great Reciter.
Mrs, Scott-Siddons was favored with
one of Westminster's choicest audiences
on Saturday evening. The ladies in the
audience admired the costume of the
reciter very much, and it wascortainly
magnificent enough to have been made
by Worth. MrB. Scott-Siddons doeB not
seem to lose much of her dramatic talents
or finely-modulated voice by the en
croochment of adyancmgi years. Her
de'rful inflections of which her rich" voice
is susceptible never weary the ear.
Unfortunately a burner had been left
out of the foot-light arrangement and
when the gas wns turned on, the smelt
became so overpowering that Mrs. Scott-
Siddons had to excuse herself and retire
for a few minutes. A plug of wood was
hammered into the instertice and the
entertainment went on. From the programme can been seen the varied nature
of theentertainment. As a Shakespearean
reciter Mrs. Scott-Siddons is fairly good,
but it is in pieces such as "Tho Lady
Clare," "Sent Back by the Angels" and
"Love in a Balloon," that she excels.
The remark is trito that it takes a man
to do justice to Shakespeare and his
diametrical opposite, Mark Twain. Mrs.
Scott-siddons, however, succeeded in
pleasing her audience, and that is always something, especially when the
box-office receipts are pleasing to the
performer, too. The following is the
"ruLiumme:   Scene, "Much Ado About
louring," Shakespeare; The Lady Clare,
Tennyson; A Senator Entangled, J.
DeMille; Sleep-walking sceno, "Macbeth" Shakespeare; Selection, "David
Copperfield," Dickens; Chapter, "Innocents Abroad," Mark Twain; Sent Back
by the Angels, F. Langbridge; Love in
a Balloon, L. Moseiey.

New Telegraphic Connection.
There are at present two gentlemen in
the city on business of very great importance, not only to Victoria but to the
whole Province. They aro Mr. Lyman
Dwigbt, Superintendent of the Great
Northwest Telegraph Company at Winnipeg, and Mr. Frank Jayncs, Superintendent of the Western Union, at San
Francisco. Tho visit iB made by Mr.
Dwigbt on behalf of his company, who
are anxious to secure connection with
tho commercial centre of this Province
either direct or by the Western Union
wires. The latter is easily carried out
by tho Western Union constructing lines
to the boundary, and the Great
Northwestern building from the
point of connection north to New
Westminster and Vancouver, thence
forming connection with Nanaimo and
Victoria by laying a cable across the
Gulf of Georgia. The charter of the
Northwestern Company gives the company power to construct telegraph lines
anywhere in Canada and,therefore,there
will be no difficulty about securing that
permission,which refused, has prevented
this city from long ago securing connection with the Western Union system by
the layiug of a cablo to the American
shore. Mr. Jaynes informed a reporter
that lie merely accompanies Mr, Dwight
for the purpose of, looking over tho
ground and ascertaining how the business community feel about it. So far ho
had found that business men were
unanimously iu favor of the alternate
route which the Great NorthweBtem
Telegraph Company would give. Should
Mr. Dwight's report to the company be
favorable, he thought it was likely tho
construction of the line north to New
Wesomlnstor and Vancouver would bo
commenced almost immediately, but
the laying of the cable would take some
time to prepare for.
A Correct Iteport.
Chief Pearce is very anxious to let the
public know that no officer or special
officer of tho police force witnessed the
fight near the Cleveland Hotel on Friday
night. So very anxious, iu fact, was ho
concerning the matter, that he called at
Truth office and asked that paper to deny
it for him, The News-Advertiser, also,
was requested to refute the flaring inac-
ciirracy of Tub Columbian's statement,
The Chief further attempted to clear the
matter up at the police court this morning by asking tho participators in the
light whether they had seen a constable
present at the melee, The first declared
he was " paralyzed drunk" and conse-
The Carpenters All Go Out  On
for the   Nino-Hour   Day.
When the nine-hour ByBtem went into
force a month ago it was generally
thought that tho matter had been settled for this season at least. The contractors agreed to tbe change from 10 to
9 hours as a day's labor, but a number
of them only gave in when it was seen
that their contracts would suffer verv
seriously should tney hold out and u
strike follow. At tbe Bnino time many
of the contractors aro iu favor of the
shorter day's labor, and are willing now
to continue the same system, but, of
course, thoy'could not afford to givo
their men tho short day and compete
with contractors working the long day
at the same rato of wages.
On Saturday evening several contractors notified their men that commencing
to-day, the old 10 hours system would
bo resumed. This was objected to and
the carpenters went out on strike. This
morning the movement took decided
form. At the request of the contractors
favoring the nine hour system their mon
also went out on Btrike in order to bring
the matter to a general understanding
in the quickest possible time.
A deputation of the strikers called at
Tin. Columbian office and explained
their position in the strike. They considered it would be very unfair if a num-
of tlie contractors were allowed to ro-
turn to the old system, while the more
liberal employers continued to work on
the shorter day plan. And this was the
reason why they had gone out on strike ns
a body—to force either one or the other
system to be adopted all round. The
difference in favor of the contractor
working the ten hours would be about
10 per cent on tho value of a contract,
consequently the liberal contractor who
is willing to work his men only 0 hours
per day would be placed at a decided
disadvantage, and this state of affairs

notified that His Honor lias been pleased to direct that the boundries ol Aldergrove School
District be altered and re-tlcflned as follows:
Commencing at the inldtllo point of the northern boundary lino ot Section 35, Township 10,
New Westminster District; thence due east four
and a half miles to tho north-east corner of section !..., Township 1_; thence due south to the

of the eastern boiimlarv lino nf .Section 16;
thence east one and a half miles to the centre
of Section H; thence In a direct line north

tho carpenters nre determined shall not mencement,
exist.
The strikers are all quiet in demeanor
and no loud talking or wild Bayings
wero heard in the groups that gathered
on the streets this afternoon. They
seem rather to enjoy the holiday, and
piobably would be quite pleased to have
a few days rest. A meeting of all carpenters in the Citv will beheld in the
Orange Hall to-night, whon the situation will be discussed and a regular plan
of action adopted.
POLICE   COURT.
Moses Ord and Frank Weoden paid a
line of :j5 each for having been drunk
and disorderly last Saturday.
Harry Williams forfeited his $5 bnil
for having been drunk and disorderly.
Sam, a Fort Rupert Indian got "hyue
potlum" on Saturday evening. Officer
Carty proceeded to arrest Sam, who was
on n'sidewalk four feot above tlie level
of the swamp. While climbing nj>.„on
ling and struck tho officer three heavy
blows on the helmet, damaging ita
good deal. The officer also tore a large
rent in his nether garments in the
struggle before he arrested las prisoner.
His Honor said these offences were becoming altogether too common, aud
after commenting on the fingrancy of
this case imposed a sentence of six
months' imprisonment on tho prisoner
The Chief ot Police asked that a sum
equivalent lo the purchase of a new pair
of pants or repair of the damaged ones,
and a helmet, be appropriated out of
the funds in possession of the prisoner.
His Honor ordered this to be done and
said that iu tho next case of this kind
ho will commit the prisoner for trial by
Supremo court or Speedy Trials Act.
Box and Trombley, the two men who
fought on Friday night at the west end
of Columbia street wero before the court
this morning on sun.mouses issued by
tho city policeman who witnessed the
fight.   Trombley showed signs of severe
Euiiit.lime.it, both his eyes being badly
lacked aud his noso swollen. He described himself as a laboring man; he is
a strong, thick-set fellow, but not nearly
so much so ao Box, who stands six feet
and is vory muscular. Box said he had
neverquarrelledinhis life before, but
was so postered and bothered by Trombley that he had to fight. Trombley followed him around wanting to fight and
finally struck him. Trombley admitted
that he had told Box he was not satisfied and would like him to come outside
the city limits as he did not think he
had got a fair chance. Box having fought
him (Trombley) while tho latter was
"paralyzed drunk," His Honor said
Trombley was evidently the aggressor
but Box should have walked away when
challenged. Box said he was a laboring
man and usually worked up north.
By the Chief of Police—Did either of
you notice a constable in the crowd
when tho fight occurred? Box said ho
was so much excited there might havo
been any number and he would not
have noticed them, Trombley said that
in the condition ho was in, i.e. "paralyzed drunk," (to use his own language)
ho did not notice anything.
His Honor said this was a most flagrant breach of the peace and ought to
be punished ns an aggravated assault.
He would, however, impose it fine of
$15 and ft2.50 costs in each ruse, this
time; in default, one month's imprisonment each. The fines were paid. Box
asked His Honor what a man was to do
if another man followed him round
wanting to fight and then struck him,
H is Honor said if the man struck him
and used threats and menacing actions
nnd seemed likely to carry them out, ho
should go and lay nn information against
the agresaor.
Also that his Honor 1ms been pleased to
niter and ro-dcflne the boundaries of Otter
School District, as follows:
Commencing at the middle point of the southern boundarv lino of Section tiO, Township 10,
