London, Mar. 11,—'The Queen looked
very well at the drawing room and was
in good humor. She sat a part of the
time and went away when there wero
only 40 more ladies to paes. The Queen
was covered with orders and she seemed
a little more white than usual in her
funeral attire. The non-appearance of
the Duchess of Fife at the drawing room
was a great disappointment, as it was
understood she was to attend and be
presented by the Prince 6f Wales. Just
at the last moment it was thought advisable that she should remain at home
in order to avoid all fatigue in view of
an interesting event not very far distant.
THE QUEEN'S .JOURNEY.
The Queen's servants, horses and
carriages, and four vans of furniture,
plate ana china, are to be dispatched
Thursday to Dover from Windsor and
Buckingham. They will be conveyed
by special steamer to Calais and thence
to Aix Les Baines in a special train.
A PALACE CAR.
The Prince of Wales went to and returned from Scotland last week in a new
saloon carriage which has been built by
the Great Northern expressly for Royal
travellers by the East Coast route, and
which is a marvel for comfort and convenience. The carriage includes sitting
room, two bedrooms, smoking compartment, accomodations for servants, and is
heated by hot water and lighted by electricity. The decorations are very pretty
and the furniture is perfect.
DINED HIS FATHER-IN-LAW.
The Prince of Wales dined with the
Duke of Fife on Sunday night in Port-
man Square, and a large and very cosmopolitan company were invited to meet
him. Among others the Duke of Portland, Lord Londonderry, Lord Cadigan.
Mr. Irving, Sir Henry Thompson ana
Mr. Beerbohm.
Harrington's health.
The free warmth of the Egyptian climate has already had a beneficial effect
upon Lord Harrington, who is looking
much better than at any time since his
illness, and has been going about Cairo
riding and walking as if he never had
been ill.
PARISIAN   SURGERY.
The melancholy death of Abraham
Lincoln, son of the American Minister,
reflects great discredit on Parisian surgery, for it is directly due to an imprudent and premature operation which
made necessary a repetition of frequeut
similar operations as the only means of
affording relief by freeing the heait and
lungs, and the patient sank under the
exhaustion thereby produced.
GENERAL BOULANGEB.
General Boulanger does not intend to
remain much longer exiled in Jersey,
and is making arrangements to take
another house in London during the
season.

The principal portion of the famous
Castle Howard collection of Greek and
Roman antiquities has been sold by

The Mine Dluater.
London, March 11.—The latest news
from the Monsa mine disaster says four
entombed men succeeded in crawling
through a crevice between the roof of the
mine and the debris. They report having passed over heaps of dead miners,
and express the belief that none of the
other entombed are alive.
Beslgng the I'renileriililp.
Pebtu, March 11.—The Emperor, Herr
Von Tisza and Count Von Szapara, had
a conference to-day to consider the inin-
iiterial situation. It ended in the resignation of Herr Von Tisza from the
Hungarian Premiership. Count Von
Szapara is appointed as his successor.
No other changes were made in the
Cabinet.        ■     	
Fair Weather.
San Francisco, March 11. — Fair
weather, with the exception of light
winds in the western portion, from the
mouth of the Columbia northward, is
predicted for Oregon and Washington
until to-morrow morning.
Indian War.
Yuma, Ariz., March 11,—Indian runners bring news of several murders along
the Colorado River in Lower California
among the Cocopah Indians. Old Chief
Colorow died three weeks ago and the
new chief, believing the medicine man
to be guilty of witchcraft, caused his
murder. Thereupon his relatives killed
two of the slayers, and the chief with
balance of the tribe assert that they will
kill all the medicine men, including
other medicine men's sons. Considerable excitement prevails among the Indians, who believe that the feud will
result in the death of many additional
Cocopahs. The tribe live in Mexican
territory, a short distance below the
international line.

That a respectful address be presented to His Honor, the Lieutenant-Governor, requesting him to cause to be
sent down to the House copies of all
OrderB in Council, received or approved,
respecting the proposed railways known
as the Spokane Falls and Northern
Railway, or the British Columbia Southern Railway, together with all correspondence and telegrams receivod or sent
by the Government, or any of its members, upon the same subjects. Resolution carried.
Mr. Semlin moved, seconded by Mr.
Beaven, the following resolution:
That a respectful addresB be presented
to Hia Honor, the Lieutenant-Governor,
asking him to cause to be sent down to
this House copies of all Orders in Council, letters, and correspondence between
this Government nnd the Government
of the Dominion of Canada, or any correspondence between any members of
said Governments, in relation to the"
EropOBed exchange of lands iu the Peace
iver country for the lands known as
the Railway Belt on the Mainland of
thiB Province.
Mr. Semlin made a few explanatory remarkB on the resolution and Hon.
Mr. Robson said he was glad tho honorable gentleman had asked for those returns.   Carried.
Hon, Mr. Robson laid before the
House the returns respecting the dismissal of Archibald.      '
Mr. Haslam asked leave to introduce
a bill Intituled "An Act respecting the
marking of timber." Bill read n first
time and will receive second reading on
Wednesday.
Mr. Semlin moved the second reading
of the Ashcroft and Cariboo Railway
Bill. The honorable gentleman gave
some very interesting historical reminiscences of the great rush to the Fraser
river gold bars way back in '50 and '60.
He said that those adventurers and pioneers had been stopped by the rugged
and insurmountable barrier presented
to their invading march by the Cascade
mountains. This mighty range of
mountains had stopped the human tide
and kept it in hetween the mountains
and the sea., Many of those hardy
frontiersmen made their fortunes, others
went away and others stayed and settled
down. When the British and Eeaatern
press astonished the whole world by the
recital of the marvellous wealth of the
Cariboo region, the great rush of '62
took place, but the gold seekers had
hard work getting in to the El Dorado.
Many of his honorable colleagues in the
house were there in the vanguard of the
pioneerB and they would vividly recollect the almost insuperable difficulties
over whieh they passed to reach the
Cariboo country. Many gave up the
struggle on account of the expense, the
difficulties by the way and the enormous
expense of living at the diggings. When
he stated that staple articles of food
fetched $2. per pound it would readily
enough be understood that the country
must have been Immensely rich to keep
up such prices so long,' Settlements
had sprung up all along the route to Cariboo for the purpose of supplying
staple commodities for the consumption
of tne miners. Farma and villages dotted
the road to Cariboo. The gold producing industry has suffered and diminished
ear by year, not on account of the ex-
laustion of the gold deposits, but for
want of proper means of communication.
It was for the purpose of fostering the
progress and prosperity of that vast district that this bill had been introduced.
Mr. Mason seconded the motion to
read the bill a second time, and said the
prosperity of the Province would be
materially enhanced by the completion
of the railway. It would be the one
great means of developing the vast
bodies of rich ore which are known to
exist in that region. He said he would
like to see the line run through the fertile valley of Lake la Hache.
Mr. Cowan supported the bill with
pleasure and referred in eulogistic terms
to the excellent quality of wheat grown
along the way to Cariboo. He thought
the timo allowed for the completion of
tho railway too long.
Mr. Mason made a fine speech ii
indulged iu "encomiastical felicitation b'
in regard to Cariboo.
Hon. Mr. Robson said he was one of
those who believed that Cariboo possessed vast minerals, chiefly quartz, it
was true. It was quite impossible to ex*
pect the development of this wealth
without railway communication. The
government had a few years before sent
out an exploratory survey and the result
of their labors would be of the greatest
value to the furtherance of this railway
project. He quite agreed with his honorable friend (Mr. Cowan) that the time
was too long and if adhered to many of
the old pioneers would not see the com
pletion of this grand work. He was
sure the measure would commend itself
to all British Columbia and he hoped to
see all parties join hands that this important enterprise might be pushed for
ward without delay. It was a measure
on which there could be no jealousy.
Bill read a second time and committed, Mr. Thompson in the chair.
Committee rose and reported bill complete with amendments. Report will be
considered at next sitting of the House.
Hon. Mr. Davie moved the second
reading of the Jubilee Hospital Bill.

( Flam  Our  Own Cutrcniuimlenl.)
THE SENATE,
In lust Monday's sitting of the Senate
Hon. Mr. McCallum continued his
charges against the superintendent of
the Wellend Canal. He charges that
there is mfsniaiiagement, salaries being
paid without services being rendered,
one or two persons' debts being paid
out of the public funds,- on attempt
to hide actual expenditure from the
Government, and an exhibition of plunder. Tho whole afternoon was occupied
in the discussion.
On Tuesday Mr. Dickey called for tho
third reading of the "Railway Act
Amendment Bill." Hon. Mr. McCal-
lum moved that the bill be road presently, nnd Hon. Mr. Ogilvie that it be
not read a third timo presently, but
that it be read a third time this da
months.   Hon. Senator O'Donohue
ported  Hie six months'  hoist.    	
Senator Power supported the present
reading of the bill and Hon. Mr. Vidul
against. The Senate divided on the
amendment, which was rejected by the
following vote, yeas 18, nays 32. Hon.
Senators Mclnnes nnd Macdonald, of
British Columbia, voted against the

Hon. Mr. Sutherland enquired:

Kiver, iuto Lake Winnipeg, by also improving that part known as the St.
Andrew's rapids, which wi.l materially

~ ' House divided on the motion with the

Messrs. Barnard, Earle, Gordon, Mara
and Prior voted in the negative.
On Thursday Mr. Brown asked for the

month's hoist. The House divided on
the amendment with the following
result: Ycas,82; nays, 91. Mr. Barnard
voted for the amendment, and Messrs.
Earle, Gordon and Mara for the motion.
Mr. Prior was absent.
Mr. Taylor moved the second reading
of his bill, "To prohibit the Importation
and migration of foreigners and aliens
under contract or agreement to perform
labor in Canada." After a lengthy discussion the debate by order of Sir John
A. Macdonald wub adjourned.
On Friday tho House went into committee of supply with following result:
Compensation to pensioners in lieu of
html, $1,800. A hot discussion arose as
to the pension given to Sergeant Vali-
quettc, the Opposition claiming favoritism as the pension was larger then the
amount he received when in active service. Sir Adolphe Caron defended himself well and was assisted by Sir John
A. Macdonald. Then came the matter
of Sergeant Hurrell, whose health has
left him through the severe exposure to
which he was subjected during the
Northwest rebellion. Sir John A. Macdonald and Sir Adolphe contended that
the man was able to work. Hurrell was
in the stranger's gallery and shouted out
" that's a lie." Sir Adolphe said I have
heard that Hurrell has said that he
will shoot me at sight. Hurrell shouted
" that's another lie." Then Sir Adolphe
appealed to the chairman, and the ser-
geant-at-arms went to the gallery and
removed Hurrell.

PROVINCIAL PARUAMENT.
t From Our Own Oorretpoiutent,)
Monday'■   Proceeding*.
Mr. Speaker took the chair at 2 p hi.
The committee on Private Bills presented their report. The rule had been
complied with and preambles proved of
the bills to incorporate the Nanuimu
Telephone Company and the British
Columbia Jockey Club.
The report also stated that the title of
the bill introduced as the Canadian Pacific Fire Insurance Co. Act, had been
altered to the "Loudon and Canadian
Fire Insurance Co. Act." On the ground
that the first title might cause confusion
owing to its similarity to that of the
"Pacific Coast Fire Insurance Co."
The committee had also considered
tho Vancouver Water Works Amendment Act, and wished the opinion of the
attorney-general onthequestion whether
it did not conflict with the act of 1880.
Report received-
Mr, Beaven moved, seconded by Mr.
Semlin, the following resolution:
(From Our Own Correspondent.)
North Abm, March 10.—Thore wore
small congregations at church Sunday,
A severe squall sprang up about tho
time people would be starting, which
deterred many from putting out iu their
little boats. A good attendance nt Sunday school at 8 p. m., which since the
beginning of this year has been under
the superintendence of Mr. Tuttle, in
place of Mr. 0. D. Sweet, resigned; the
latter gentleman having tilled the office
and performed the arduous duties of
that position ever since our school was
organized, some seven years ago.
The Fairy Queen is again on her old
route. The sound of her whistle is encoring music after being so long shut in by
ico and bad roads.   The tables are now
turned, and people go to Vancouver via
Westminster. The road between the
former place and this settlement is very
bud. There is no stage running, the
mail being carried on horse-back.
When, however, the electric railway,
that Vancouver!tea are so enthusiastic
over, Is extended to the Fraser, and
thence ..cross the island, we will forget
all our trials and privations, forgot even
that there over was a time when wo had
a broken bridgo and no stuamor. But
wo shall not have to wait for u railway
to efface the memory of these things.
The pile-driver is on hand and preliminary operations in connection with work
on the bridgo have commenced.
Councillor Oarratt returned on Friday
from Victoria.
Tho five-year-old daughter of Mrs.

badly.
ment of Geology,
History."    Near,
was taken up iu the discussion.
The bill, "Improper Use of Firearms,"
was read a third time. The bill is to
prevent children from being able to buy
firearms or ammunition. It is a good
bill for the protection of little ones
against accident.
On Thursday nothing of importance
was done.
On Saturday morning quite a scene
took place in the Star room of the Senate. The divorce case of Olapp vs Clapp
was being tried. Reporters are not admitted, but one of tho Press Gallery
happened to got in and was present for
over three quarters of an hour listening
to the proceedingi, viz., questions asked
by senators and counsel, and the relation of grievance that Mrs. Clapp had
against Mr. Clapp. All wont along
smoothly for about three quarters of an
hour when another shover of the quill
became ambitious to get inside also and
succeeded. The two reporters were there
about fifteen minutes longer when the
cry was raised' 'Thero aro reporters in the
room." Senator Dickey, as though struck
by a galvanic battery, jumped from his
seat and demanded their expulsion.
Then commenced the row. The doorkeeper trying to put the reporters out
and the reporters refusing to leave.
Senators arguing that reporters should
not be excluded, others claiming that
they should. Senator Dickey expostulating and demanding the immediate
forcible operation of his order, and proclaiming that Star Chambers all over the
world were private, and they were given
the cold shoulder. Then one of the reporters present rose in his dignity and
might and oratorically duinfoundered
the chairman and almost paralyzed
with fright and eloquence the other senators assembled. While this excitement—it was now at its highest ebb was
going on—Senator Robitaille entered,
and being in a feeble state fell to the floor.
Then came the bedlam. The struggle
to put t he reporters out, the Senator on
the floor and half a dozen persons rushing to his assistance to lift him up,
Mrs. Clapp fanning herself with excitement, Mr. - Clapp looking around as
though wondering what was going to
happen next, and Senator Dickey gesticulating wildly and demanding order.
This over the reporters loft and returned to their quarters in the House
of Commons, and pulling out a cigar
each enjoyed a gentle smoke.

Commons who fought so gloriously in

TRUTH CONTRADICTED
Editor Colombian.—Sir: I beg leave
to contradict the item that appeared in
Truth this morning, namely, that licenses would be issued on the 15th and
fishing commence on the 17th inst. I
have bad no instructions from my De-

A I'l-EA FOll THE OPPRESSED.
Editor Columbian—Sir—Having under consideration the well-known fact
of your readiness to give a corner to the
plaintive cry of the downtrodden, etc.,
etc., I would ask of you to insert the
following few remarks in the hope that
it may bring forth fruit meet for repentance on the part of those who cause the
following state of affairs.
In those days of -agitation for the
workingman's rights, in these times of
loud and bitter outcry as to the inadequate remuneration for manual labor,
one unfortunate class of society is left
unnoticed without a champion In their
cause. The elans I refer to are those
who have to fill a true bill of respectability in a strata of society; they have
had to come through a thorough and
generally an expensive training, and
they have to possess abilities as varied
as are the responsibilities laid upon
them. No doubt you can easily understand that I refer to that unfortunate
class of humanity "the general mercantile book-keeper." A very popular
work not long ago created no little discussion and no little diversity of opinion;
its title was, "Is life worth living?" I
believe the answer, as far as the "bookkeeper" is concerned, is a unanimous
vote negatively.
The old, old song as to the "Bishop's
salary and the curate's work" is
but a flimsy patch in a threadbare garment compared with the
employer's requirements, and the clerk's
pay. Take into consideration the
amount of responsibility laid upon one
who has only a very ordinary set of
books to keep. The steady drudgery
from early morning till late at night,
the numerous correspondence to attend
to, minor matters without number, a
mistake in which certainly leads to confusion and trouble and oftener ends in
loss. The scrupulous exactitude in cash
matters or the stigma of suspicion. The
proverbial scapegoat of ancient Israel
to-day yet lives, nay skips, in the person
of the B. K. The merchant overlooks
some matter or another: It is "the clerk
forgot so and so." The employer fails
to see the point of some important communication : his answer still will be "we
regret our clerk should have unfortunately," etc.
Alas! the breadth of shoulders the
Qr clerk requires would eat up all his
!e salary to keep covered by respectable cloth. There are no doubt prizes
sometimes drawn in this lottery, but
the blanks exceed the prizes as much as
do the bristles on a hog's back surpass
the plumage on a roasted goose, But.
seriously, 1 maintain, and know whereof I
speak, that a clerk, likely well brought
up, certainly possessed of more than a
fair education, and required to fill his
{dace in respectable society, is not paid
or his services what a common mud
scavenger 1b remunerated in this very
city for his skilled labor and scholarly
attainments.
In the hope of some abler pen than
mine taking up aud ventilating this sub-
iect or showing how the grievance may
ic mitigated.
I am, yours fraternally.

Taulbee li Dead>
Washington, Mar. 11.—William Preston Taulbee, representative in Congress
from the tenth Kentucky district in the
40th and 50th Congress, shot by Chas.
E. Kiucaid, died this morning at 6
o'clock at Providence hospital. His
death had been expected for several
days, but while still a chance for his
life the physicians thought it advisable
not to permit him to make an ante-
mortem statement of the circumstances
surrounding the shooting. He died
without making any statement, and tho
case against Kiucaid rests entirely on
the statement of himself and two eyewitnesses of the tragedy. One of these
eye-witnesses is Samuel Donaldson, formerly door-keeper of the House of Representatives, who refused to make any
statement for publication. Donaldson
was with Taulbee at the time the shooting occurred. The other witness was a
boy who cannot bo found. Tho stories
of the shooting differ ill one important
particular. Kincaid and Taulbee had
an encounter some time prior to the
shooting, in the corridor adjoining the
hall of tho House. Just before the
shooting took place Kincaid armed himself after the first encounter with Taul- ;
bee, and seeing him, called to him, and
as he turned, shot him in the face.
Kiucaid says he armed himself in fear of
danger from a further encounter with
Taulbee; that Taulbee had warned him
to arm himself and Taulbee insulted aud
attacked him on their second encounter,
rendering his resort to the pistol a
necessity.

A GOOD PROGRAMME.
As will be aeon by the report of last
night's meeting, the City Council is
getting down to work in good shape.
The programme for street and other improvements submitted by the Board of
Works must strike every ratepayer as
being a well-conceived and comprehensive plan of work for the present season,
and one which will tend materially to
the continuance and furtherance of tho
city's prosperity and progress. The improvements as outlined, it is estimated,
will require the borrowing by the city of
about $115,000, and when the ratepayers
look iuto the matter carefully we do not
believe there will be a single objection to
the loan. It would be the greatest folly
—in fact is not to be thought of—to permit many of the improvements inaugurated last year to remain iu their present
unfinished condition and, to allow
necessary new street work to remain untouched. The city is plainly progressing—a glance at tlie number of applications in the Council report. for street
lines and permits to lay building material will give an Idea of the lively
building season that is just commencing—and there is every prospect of our
population being largely added to in the
next six or eight months, and a corresponding increase of wealth both real and
personal. These facts will not only
amply justify tlie proposed expenditure,
but the improvements in turn—and
even the adoption of the by-law authorizing them—will have a most gratifying reflex effect, augmenting property
values at a bound and adding to the general progress and prosperity. The pro-
gramme brought in by the Board of
Words, we are glad to see, was adopted
by the Council, and the ratepayers, it is
perfectly safe to say, will not do less
when tho matter is properly brought before them.
life. This demonstrated that the condition was not one of suspenied animation, but of death. At Clinton prison a
young bull, weighing about six hundred
pounds, was instantly killed by a current of 900 volts. On receiving the full
force of the current, 900 volts, the ani-
mat fell and instantly the inuBcles relaxed, owing to a drop in the voltage
from 900 to 400. The period of contact
was continued, however, for ten seconds;
but as the experiments have shown that
a current of 400 volts is hardly sufficient,
to kill one of the larger animals, the
conclusion that the bull was killed by
the instantaneous impact of 900 volts is
inevitable. Drs. Macdonald and Rockwell, of tbe committee, had previously
experimented on various animals, including dogB, calves and horses, and had
found that a current of 1,000 volts was
sufficient to instantly kill a horse, while
one of BOO volts was all that was necessary to kill dogs and wives weighing
76 pounds. In all these experiments
the contact varied from 10 seconds at
the lowest to 20 seconds at the highest.
The minimum time necessary to effect
death was not accurately determined.
From the tests of the dynamos, as des-
crilied, together with the experiments
on animals, which were regarded as
satisfactory, the committee entertains
no doubt as to the efficiency of the three
dynamos at Sing Sing, Auburn and
Dannemora to accomplish the work for
which they are intended.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
EXECUTION BY ELECTRICITY.
The committee appointed by the New
York State prison superintendent to test
the efficiency of the electrical appliances
and dynamos placed in the state prisons
for the.execution of condemned murderers by electricity instead of by hanging,
lias made its report to the superintendent. The contract for appliances with
which to carry out the law called for
" one 050 light alternating dynamo with
" electromotive force variable at will
" from 1,000 to 2,000 volts in each one
" of the three state prisons,-each dyna-
" mo to be furnished with an exciter
" and rheostat." A Cardow voltmeter
and some other apparatus were also to
be placed in one of the state prisons
which the superintendent might specify.
Tlie method employed by the committee
to determine the electro-motive force of
the dynamos was to measure by means
of a Cardow voltmeter, tho full potential
along a resistance of German silver wire.
With this end in view, says the committee, wero constructed four frames,
each holding 100 ohms of No. 15 German
silver wire. The 100 ohms wore divided
into portions of ten ohms each. In parallel with each of these portions was put
a fifty volt lamp of twenty caudle power.
The object of the wire was to maintain
the potential when the Cardow voltmeter was applied to the lamps. The
voltiijT butwoeu each lamp was taken
with :i Oardc'iV voltmeter which had been
previously calibrated. This method
furnk'hed a ready though Inexact means
of observing the potential from the
candle power of the lamps. The exact
measurements were made with the Car-
dew voltmeter applied successively!
The committee says that " the term
" electromotive force as used to express
" potentials on an alternating current
" needs definition," and these definitions are given us follows : "(1) Acorn-
" inercial voltage of, say, fifty volts, Ib
" such an alternating voltage as will,
"upon an incandescent lamp or Cardew
" voltmeter, produce tho same light and
" heat effects as fifty volts lu the case of
11 a continuous current, (2) In alter-
" tutting current dynamos the electro-
" motive force undergoes rapid periodic
" changes, being at one instant zero,
" increasing to a maximum, diminish'
" ing again to zero, tlieti reversing in
" direction, it again rises to a maximum,
"to fall again to zero. This cycle of
" changes is usually repeated many
" times in a second. The average
" of these rapidly changing strengths is
" sometimes called the electromotive
" force of the dynamo. (3) Sometimes
" the maximum of electromotive force
" obtained iu the cycle of changes Ib
" called the electromotive force of the
" dynamo, hence the figures will vary
" according as tlie electromotive force
'.' acting iu any apparatus is expressed
" in accordance wit1! one or the other of
% tlu-Ho deli nitioiis."
The report concludes with an interest-
ijiig account of the various experiments
and their results which were carried out
upon different animals devoted to the
purpose. At Auburn prison the committee tested tho deadly energy of the
current on a calf and also on a horse,
tho latter weighing about one thousand
pounds. Placing ono electrode on the
forehead of the horse and the other on
the outer aspect of the hind leg just
above the gambrel, ,a current of electromotive force of 1,2(H) volts was passed.
Death was Instantaneous. In order to
throw light upon the question as to the
possibility of resuscitation after apparent death by electricity, Dr. George
E. Fell, of Buffalo, was invited to be
present with an apparatus devised by
him for thiB purpose. Immediately
after the calf had received the electrical
stroke Dr. Fell opened the windpipe and
inserted the tube of tho apparatus, and
for half an hour kept up forced respiration, but failed to elicit any evidence of
The late M. Chevreul who recently
died In Paris aged over a century, never
cared for the pleasures of the palate,
consequently ate very little himself, and
railed at those who ate more. He con
sidered that the Revolution did France
a great evil by throwing the cooks of the
nobility out of employment, and leaving
them free to open cheap restaurants and
serve   palate-tickling   meals   to   the
masses.—Ex. ^6	
A bill has been introduced into the
Imperial Parliament by Mr. Campbell
Bannerman to remove two of the three
last remaining disabilities of Roman
Catholics. It proposes to make thein
eligible to the positions of Lord Chan
cellor of England and Irish Lord Lieu
tenant. Should the bill pass, the only
position to which a Roman Catholic
could not aspire would be the
sovereignty of the empire. English
Catholics certainly cannot complain
that their claims are ignored by their
countrymen.
The cholera which bus, for many
months been raging in the valleys of the
Tigris and Euphrates and the interior
of Mesopotamia, has made inroads into
Persia. It has.now been announced to
the Paris Faculty of Medicine that there
has been an alarming increase of the
disease in Central Persia and on the
Turko-Persian frontier, and that the inhabitants are fleeing northward. The
Philadelphia Medical and Surgical Re
porter says, remembering that this is
the route into Europe, which the cholera
has bo frequently taken, the announce
inent must be regarded as one of great
gravity.—Ex.
The Niagara River Hydraulic Tunnel,
Power, and Sewer Company will now, it
is stated, carry out its plan for utilizing
the fall of water at Niagara, by building
its main tunnel aud connecting cross
tunnels with wheel pits. The estimate
of cost is $2,250,000. It is estimated
that if thirty mills of 500 horse power
each are built, It would pay five per cent
upon a capital of $3,000,000, while if all
privileges were taken the result would
pay the interest upon a lurge block of
bonds and a handsome return of the
stock. One of the best known banking
houses ou Wall Btreet is deeply interest'
ed in the undertaking. The scheme is
one of sound engineering and is
thoroughly practicable.
Mr. Will Mcllwralth, of Rockhamp-
ton, who recently paid a visit to his old
home in Scotland, and returned to
Queensland by way of Canada, describes
the Canadians as "a fine people—warmhearted, generous, and hospitable."
Mr. Mcllwraith is one of the proprietors
of tbe Rockhampton Bulletin and the
Capricornian, and his tour througe Canada was undertaken for the purpose of
arranging, among other things, for a direct line of steamers to run between
Vancouver and Rockhampton. This
latter is, as they Bay in the play, a
"large order."—Colonies and India. Mr.
Mcllwrath, it will be remembered,
passed through this province last summer, on his way homo.
Tne Sanitary Record says that a large
business has sprung up in Newcastle-on-
Tyne In shipping old and diseased horses
to Antwerp. On a single morning there
were 40 such horses shipped, and their
condition was such that the person in
charge was fined for cruelty to animals
in moving such horses. The "first-class
" ones" are made into beef, the "second-
" class ones" into sausages, and there is
doubt about the use made of the " third
"class." Great excitement exists in
Italy over the discovery that extensive
frauds have been practised in the manufacturing of Bologna sausages. Horse
flesh has been used instead of the savory
pig meat, and, too, animals that had
died of infectious diseases.
A decision which may be important
has recently been given by the Supreme
Court of Georgia as to the liability of the
proprietor of a patent medicine (so/
called) for injury produced by its use.
The court held that as the proprietor of
such a preparation intended its composition to be a secret, and expected to
derive a profit from such secrecy, he was
liable for all injuries by anyone who
takes his preparation in such quantities
as may be directed by him. It is not,
the judgment runs, the duty of a person using medicine to ascertain what
poisonous drugs it may contain. He
has a right to rely upon'the statement
of the proprietor, printed and published
to the world; and if thus relying he
takes the medicine and is injured on
account of some concealed drug of which
he is unaware, the proprietor Ib not free
from fault, and is liable for the injury
thereby sustained.
Quito appropriate to the place and the
occasion, an international prison reform
congresB Is sitting at St. Petersburg.
The Czar, too, acting, it may be presumed, under the inspiration of the
spirit which regulates the eternal fitness
of things, has offered a prize for the
best essay on John Howard, the famous
philanthropist who devoted himself to
the amelioration of the condition of
those In prison. On the philanthropic
congress and, presumably, not less phil
anthropic emperor, recent news from
Siberia must have had a singular effect.
With what feelings of horror they must
have approached their humanitarian
labors under the benevolent smile of the
humane Alexander, with the echo ringing in their ears, of the shrieks of a Russian lady flogged to death in a Russian
prison 1 And did they hear the waitings
of another noble woman driven insane
by cruelty, or catch a glimpse of the
ghost of still another, a young girl who
poisoned herself to escape outrage at the
hands of her gaoler? These ghastly incidents of prison life in Russia must
have given a touch of diabolical humor
to the prize offering of the Czar which
must have sent a thrill through the very
marrow of the assembled prison reformers. But they have been given a magnificent opportunity which it is hoped,
for the sake of humanity, they will not
neglect, but use it to impress upon the
Government of Russia the duty of protecting its victims from a doom incomparably worse than death.—Ex.
KAMLOOPS NOTES.
(From the Sentinel.)
Mr. Alex. Gordon and wife, of the
North Thompson, met with a slight mishap the other day. The horses broke
through the ice in two places, and were
with much difficulty taken out. Mrs,
Gordon was pitched out of the cutter
into the water between the horses, but
was rescued by Mr. Gordon with no
more serious result than a wetting.
The ice has not been safe for traffic for
some days, and the accident of this
morning will probably deter others
from risking their lives thereon.
Wolves are very plentiful in the Grand
Prairie section, and are becoming very
bold in their operations against stock.
Not long ago, a horse belonging to Mr,
Clemitson was pursued by a nock and
being overtaken was pulled down and
torn to pieces. It Ib very seldom wolves
are bold enough to hunt their quarry on
the open prairie in daytime, more especially so close to the haunts of man as
in this instance. For the sportsman
who wishes excitement Grand Prairie
should be a good field.
Advices from the mountain sections of
the C. P. R. would indicate that every
t-reparation is made for the purpose of
:eeping traffic open when tne sea
for suowslides comes. Snow plows
located at different points while relays
of men are held in readiness for concentration at any given point in a short
time. The plans thus made are under
the personal superintendence of Mr,
Marpole, the indefatigable superintendent of this division, who is a born
rustler, and has his work down to a
science. The snowfall in the mountains
has been very heavy this winter, and
when the soft weather gets in its work
the slides are likely to follow quickly,
but so perfect are the preparations for
such events that no fear is apprehended
of being unable to keep the road open.

HOW CORKS ARE MADE.
Interesting Facte About anTJnpre-|
tentloua Industry.
rhe   Only BoilneM Which Emptor* Mo
Broken or Oo-Betweena, the Hann-
netarere Being Their Own Agentr
aud Selling Their Own Good*.
There Is a vail of mystery hanging
over a cork manufactory which, according to the New York Tribune. Is
difficult to pierce. Of the twenty factories in this country none will receive
visitors. Their employes labor behind
barred portals and only differ from
State ehargeB in not wearing barred
clothes. Of these twenty factories four
are in New York, four in Boston, three
in Lancaster, Pa., three in Canada, one
in Baltimore) one in Pittsburgh, Pa.
one in Norwich, Conn., and the rest in
unfrequented places. Six importers
teed these concerns with stock.
A cork factory is an odd place.
Scarcely a sound comes from the buildings where the Industry Is carried on.
Noiseless machinery whirls with great
rapidity; the only sound heard is that of
escaping steam. Cork is soft and
clastic, at every body knows, and is the
bark of a species of oak which grows
abundantly in Portugal, Italy and Spain,
principally in Spain. The trees grow
to a prodigious size and live to the ripe
old ago of 150 years. At fifteen tbey
bogin to bear and continue to furnish
new crops of bark every five years, The
harvesting occurs in the early spring.
At that season of tho yoar a largo number of laborers are turned loose in the
wilderness and the barking begins. In-
unions are made around the trees and
the bark is stripped off. It is then
boiled to take out the sap, after which
It passes through the pressing process.
When dry it Is out, scraped, trimmed
and put up in bales like cotton for
shipment.
At tbo factories it 1b placed in a square
box and steamed to soften it, so that It
can be easily worked. Then it goes to
the saw and is cut Into long strips.
These saws aro different from ordinary
saws, inasmuch as they have no teeth.
They are provided with a razor-like
edge instead- Thoy make 9,000 revolutions a minute, and if one should be so
unfortunate as to feed his finger instead
of cork, amputation would be just as
complete and olean.
From the sawcr the strips go to the
punching machine. This Is a simple
[ilcce of merhanism, furnished with
punches of all sizes, from, three-eighths
of an inch to five inches in diameter,
i t is operated with a lever and duos its
.vork as fast as a man can bundle it.
The strips are punched with, the grain,
and it requires no little judgment to
:.:uard against Imperfections in the bark.
11 is here that the greatest waste In the
material Is experienced. From a strip
.>f bark a trifle over a foot long only a
dozon corks can he make and half of tho
material is lost. But the waste does not
end hero. It goes tnggltig tho cork all
ever the factory. Even those that are
so successful as to be molded Into a useful form have to be sorted and a goodly
number are rejected. So that waste is
i..jie of the characteristic features of the
manufacture of cork. Within tbo last
few years, however, uses have been
found for those scraps whirl, have considerably lessened the manufacturer's
loss.
After being punched into circular
form tho corks go to tho tapering machine, where their final preparation
■omes. This Is by far the most interesting part of this intonating industry.
Not so very many years ago tho only
tapering machine known was an ordinary
man and his knife. Now hand-made
jurks are unknown. This finishing ma-
:hinf is nothing more or less than a
..ahe, tho knife of which move.1, after the
mannorof an old -fashioned applo-peotor.
Tho corks aro put into an iron hand,
which conveys them to an imaginary
mouth, when up comes tho knife and tho
havings fly. The finished cork then
drops out of placo to make room for an-
utbor. When running tbo machine resembles a hungry man. Its capacity is
about one hundred gross per day.
Hut buttle stoppers aro not the only
things which are made of cork. Many
specialties, such as cork washers of
vartouB sizes, caps for pocket flasks and
kerosene oil cans and sliced corks are
manufactured also. Sliced cork Is used
fur Insoles. It Is also used in silk machinery where friction occurs. Tho
cork washers are fast taking tho placo
df rubber ones and are now considered
the only thing with which to pack
valves, aB tho troublesome oil, which
eats up rubber, has no effect on oork.
Before uses wero discovered for the
waste some hundreds of tons wore
burned up every month, and thousands
of dollars were lost in this way. Things
are different now, however. All tho
wawto is shipped to this city and made
into life-preservers, cork jackets, cork
sprinkled paper, in which glass is
packed and linulcum. ThiB pulverized
stuff is also extensively used to pack
Malaga grapes In, being handy, safe and
light. Bed mattresses and yacht cushions
are also made of the shavings and aro'
superior to those made of other mato-
tials. In fact they are so superior nnd
come bo high that but few can afford tho
luxury. Every woll-furnished yacht,
however, is thoroughly equipped with
them.       ■'	
,    A JOLLY 8EA-DOG.
How an Intelligent mule Attends to Bit
Dutlei on Ship-Board.
There is a sheep dog on board the
steamer Horrox, which plies between
Rio do Janeiro, New York and Liver,
pool, that regularly takes his station on
deck at the third watch, and can be relied upon as thoroughly as the oldest
teaman on board. His name is "Nick,"
■ays the New York Star, and whenever
a tall it sighted nothing can stop him
until he reports it to the officer on tho
bridge. lie frequently sights a vessel
before the lookout, and understands
what it is to be the first to report. If
be bears the lookout sing out, ho understands, perfectly what is said, and will
obey any order tho men give him. He
it very valuable at a barometer. Tbere
ta no ohange in the weather which Ib
not foretold by Nick, lie only enters the captain's cabin on Important business, either to announce
a tall In sight or predict a
change of weather, which ho does
In a most remarkable way. When he
wants to Inform the captain that a sail
U In Sight he runs in and harks vigorously several times and then walks out.
When he becomes a weather prophet he
ttandt on hit hind legs and paws at tho
barometer, and, according to Captain
Honing and his erew, Nick It usually
several hours ahead of the Instrument.
The steamer was at Rio when the revolution broke out, and remained tbere
several dayt. The dog usually accompanies the captain on shore when
he goes, but on the morning of the revolution, when the troops paraded tho
stroots, was very anxious to know what
was going on, and jumped overboard and
swam ashore to satisfy his curiosity.
When Captain Henlng came ashore he
was met on the wharf by Nick, who
barked furiously and tugged at bis
pantaloons to go back to the ship, Tho
captain said ho instantly knew something had happened, and his fears were
verified when he reached the office of
the company. Nick Is about six years
old and hat a shaggy blaok-and-tan
coat, with the softest and most Intel
Ugent eyes ever set In the bead of aa
animal.	
PESTERING  OLD  HICKORY.
How ft ralthfol PftrtUnn Earned an Old
Black Coat.
One morning, scarcely a fortnight aft*
er General Jackson's arrival at the
White House, a shabby-genteel-looking
man presented himself at hit parlor,
and, after the utual salutation and shaking of hands, expressed bis joy at seeing the venerable old gentleman at last
hold the situation of Chief Magistrate of
the country, to which his bravery, hit
talents and his unimpeachable reotitude
fully entitled him.
"Wo have had a hard time of it," aald
be, "In our little place; but our exertions were unremitting; I myself went
round to stimulate my neighbors, and at
last the victory was ours. We beat them
by a majority of ten votes; and I now
behold the result of that glorious triumph!"
Tho General thanked him in terms of
studied politeness, assuring him that he
would resign his office in an instant it
he did not think his eleotion gave satisfaction to a vast majority of tho people;
and at last rogretted his admirer's seal
for the public weal should have been so
severely taxed on his account.
"Oh, no matter for that, sir," Bald he;
"I did It with ploasure—1 did it for myself and for my country" (the General
bowed); "and I now come to congratulate you on your success" (the General
bowed again). "I thought, sir, that, as
as you are now President of the United
States, I might, perhaps, be useful to you
In some official capacity." (Tbo General looked somewhat embarrassed.)
"Pray, sir, have you already made a
choice of your Cabinet Ministers?"
"I have," was the reply of tho General.
"Well, no matter for that; I shall be
satisfied with an embassy to Europe."
"I am sorry to say tbere is no vacancy."
"Then you will, perhaps, require a
head olerk in a department of State?"
"Thoso aro generally appointed by
the respective Secretaries."
"I am very sorry for that; then I
must he satisfied with some Inferior appointment."
"I never Interfere with these; you
must address yourself to the beads of
departments."
"But could t not be postmaster In
Washington? Only think, General, how
1 worked for you,"
"1 am much obliged to you for the
good opinion you entertain of me, and
for your kind offices at Cue last election;
but tho postmaster for tne ..ty ot Wash
ington is already appointed."
"Well, I don't much euro for that; I
should bo satisfied with being his clerk."
"This Is a subject you must mention
to tho postmaster "
"Why, thesv, Gonoral," exclaimed the
disappointed    candidate    for    office,
haven't you got an oid Mark coat?"
Yuu may well Imagine that the General gave him ono.
THISTLE  POMPONS.
How to Hako Tlieiio Chm-ming Additions
t(l a  IlOlll|0Ct,
An exchange thua tells how to make
beautiful pumpuns fur home decoration;
Select a largo, half-hiu-vn thisUeand
cut off all the green part at tho base of
tbo blussum, ;ieit above the stem. Hang
the ih.st.ie In the open air exposed to
tbo sun and wind, and, in tbo course of
a day or two, tbo inside dowliy part will
expand Into a full, rounded pumpon, or
puff ball. Then pull out the purple
petals which bad developed into bloom
when yuu bad selected tho half-open
thistle Hung up the pumpon again
in an airy placo. and in the course of a
week it will have bleached a cream-
white. Those pompons are as feathery
and delicately pretty as swan's-down.
Thoy are a great addition to a bouquet
or a basket of grasses.
Mi.it-weed pompons aro not qulto as
easily made but aro more sillty and
nearer pure wbito than tho thistles.
Whon the milk-woed pods are ripe,
make a collection of them, and they can
be kept half a yoar or more before the
pompous aro made, if so desired, or the
pull balls can be made at once, as follows: Have some very line wire, such as
Is used for bond-work, and cut it Into
pieces four Inches long. Dip the pod in
water, and then upon it It will be
found filled with many bundlos of web-
like white fibers. Pull oft several of
thoso and wrap .tho wiro around the
ends which wero attached to the center
stem. Brush off tho black solids adhering to tho other ends, Wiro a number of tho bundles, as just described,
then with another piece of wiro, to wind
round and round, put thorn together as
you would a bouquet of flowers, thus
making a rounded pompon. City florists
have these colored a delicate pink, and
they are beautiful.
DECIDEDLY  AWKWARD.
The Archbishop  Himself Didn't Know
the Lesion* for the Dmj,
In a volume of reminiscences recently published the writer, an English
clergyman, narrates an am using dialogue
between himself and Dr. Tait, then
Bishop of London and afterward Archbishop of Canterbury, to whom he had
applied for holy orders. He was charmed
with the Bishop, he says, so grave,
kindly and courteous; but neither the
young candidate's reverence for the office nor his respect tor the man restrained him from asking one embarrassing question,
The Bishop gave me a private examination, as was his wont In all such
eases.
"I propose," he said, "to have a little
talk with you about the lessons for today."
I bowed and waited for the talk to
begin.
"What are the lessons for to-day?"
said the Bishop.
I felt nonplussed, but thought best to
be quite candid.
"I don't know what they are, my
Lord. In point of fact, 1 never read the
lessons for the day."
"You never read the lossons for the
day?" oxolalmed tho Bishop, In a rather
horrified manner. "What do you read,
then?'
"I find it more convenient, my Lord,
instead of following the selection of the
lessons, to take up some book ot the
Bible and work through It,"
The Bishop looked relieved. "And a
very good plan, too," said he. "However, on the present occasion I rather
wish to speak about the lessons. What
aro thoy?"
"Will you allow me to remind you
that I have just said that I did not know
thorn?" and then, retorting the question
upon himself, I said: "What are they,
my Lord?"
The good Bishop broke Into a gentle
laugh, "Why, really, my friend, you
have the advantage of me, l.don't know
them myself."	
"Do you know why P. T. Barnum It
unpopular with the Canadians?" asked a
theatrical agent of a Rochester Post-
Express man, "I will toll you. There
is a heavy duty on posters In Canada,
and the showman who takot a large
liiantlty of printed matter Into the
dominionlsundoran enormous expense.
Barnum determined to avoid tho ex-
aotlon. Ho planned a Canadian tour for
1880, and two years before he sent tons
of posters to Canada and neglected to
pay the duty. Tho stuff lay in the
dustom-houso without being called for,
mil at last the officials decided to ad-
v-ortiso it for Bale at auction. Barnum
tout an agent to the sale to buy up the
iho\v hills, and be did so at a bargain,
i bo secret leaked out, and that's the
■eason the patriotic citizens of Canada
im down on Barnum."	
A NUMERICAL NOMAD.
Maine's Human Algebra and Arithmetic Wonder.
A Queer Genlm Who for Many Year* HftS
' lived on n Steady Diet of Figures—His
Remarkable Inroad* on the Science of Mftthemsttoa,
Figures, figures, figures. Sueh, writes
a Blddeford (Me.) correspondent of the
New York Herald, has been the steady
diet of one man In Maine, year in and
year out, for the past quarter of a century. He is "Prof." George S. Molntire,
and no one is better known to the citizens ot Southwestern Maine than this
oft-encountered person, with his little
tin pall and his armful of books. Almost any day, be the weather what It
may, he may be soen sauntering leisurely
along the main thoroughfares or
crouched In some hallway upon a doorstop absorbed In the one groat work of
his life, mathematics. He is not exaetly
an Intellectual tramp, but, perhaps,
more strictly, a numerioal nomad. His
is a life wrapt up in figures—those dry,
abstract things, so cold, palpable and
undeniable. Only when delving in
thorn Is his cup of happiness filled to
the brim.
'Prof." GeorgeS. Molntire was born
in the little settlement of North Ken-
nebunkport, Me., on January 81, 1826.
He sprang from good, hardy, Anglo-
Saxon stook, and had he not inherited a
constitution of iron be would never
have been able to withstand tho ordeal
through which he has passed; for In his
aimless rambles he has undergone
enough exposures and privations to
knock the underpinning out of a dozen
human frames. When quite young Molntire was put at work upon the farm,
and at the age of sixteen was sent to
the village school. The curriculum o!
the school, which was kept open only
during six weeks In winter, did not soar
higher than the rudimentary elements
of mental arithmetic, and the teacher
was Moses Wilson, long since passed to
tho other shoro.
I'edagoguo Wilson determined to become a physician, and on the last day of
his administration as teacher presented
young Mclntlre with an old leather-
covered algebra. The presentation of
the old algebra, yellow with ago, yet
glowing with truths, marked the turning point In Mclntlre's life. It became
the key to all the man's future idiosyncrasies. Never before had George seen
a book called an algebra, and when he
took it home he found his parents in
equal ignorance. It was beyond them,  .
Nevertheless, young Mclntlre was
Boon knee deep among the x's, y's and'
i'b. It seemed strange to him that any
thing tangible could be resolved out of
thoso fragmentary characters, but the
more ho thought of it the more it interested dim, and ere long he became
deeply infatuated with the study. His
parents tried to dissuade him from his
task, but, uaniindrul of their suggestions, be absorbed chapter after chapter
of the wonderful book, and neglected
farm work as often as he could steal
away into tho more sequestered nooks
of the forest.
□Mclntlre remained on the farm, doing
little else than figuring, until he was
well along In years. Once he ran away
from homo and secured a job In a mill in
Saco, but be did not earn much, and
soon gave up tho undertaking In order
to accept a job at painting In a big
machine shop In Blddeford. Tho paint
bad an Ill-effect upon his system, and
bo wandered up to Buxton, where he
pushed the shovel and hoe for one Benjamin Grant. After a month of ibis
drLdgory—for any thing was drudgery
outside ol mathomauus for him—be returned to the old homestead, where he
remained a Burma of years until his parents died. Then he removed to Bidde-
tord, some timo in tho early "sixties."
Soon after Mclntlre came to Blddeford he went to Now York and took
steerage passage by tho Nicaragua route
to San Francisco. On tho passage out
he fell in with a French Gonoral who
happened to bo on board, and was a college graduate. The man of Mars ox-
pressed much surprise at Goorgo's remarkable Inroads upon tho science of
mathematics, and on one occasion during* protracted discussion of the subject, many of tho ship's passengers and
crew gathered about the pair with
mingled feelings of pity and awe.
While In San Francisoo McTntire
tawed wood and did other odd jobs, but
he found it difficult to obtain a livelihood. Nevertheless, on every pleasant
Sabbath he went to the Lone Mountain
burial-ground to decipher tho characters
on the grave-stones there, and, by way
of diversion, to rehearse bis mathematical studies. Molntire returned
from California by way ot the isthmus
in 1806.
"Professor" was the title he now went
by In Maine. So thoroughly absorbed
had he become in the one study of bis
life that It had taken on a form of monomania. And to-day, outsiue the realm
of figures, all the world is a blank to
him. He declares that be likes the study
well enough to go without his natural
food.and this he has frequently dono. He
hat seldom eaten a warm meal or slept
In a bed during many years past. Much
of the time he has slept In barns, sometimes in old carts and not infrequently he has remained out ot doors all
night. At the present timo he Is occupying a small room over a store in this
city, but nothing in the shape of a bedstead adorns the room, the occupant securing repose upon an old blanket
thrown upon tho floor, For years Mclntlre has subsisted upon milk, bread and
fruit, which ho purchases or begs In
small quantities at a time, going Into
a doorway or a livery stable to enjoy
the frugal meal.

The Nineteenth Century
Have you figured It out in your mind
that we are now on the last decade of
the nineteenth century? Mo»t people
probably have If they have thought of
it at all, but tbey who think so are
wrong. If the first decade of the Christian era began with the yoar I, then
tach succeeding century must also begin with the year 1, and the nineteenth
century will not be completed until December 81,1900, Hence the last decade
of the nineteenth century does not commence until January 1,1891.

The trial of speed between the new
Sound steamer City of Kingston and the
Olympian will be an exciting affair.
The latter vessel is being scraped and
cleaned ready for her run, and being an
old favorite has many backers. One
gentleman in Port Townsend has offered
to wager $600 that the Olympian will
make the run from Seattle to Victoria
in leas time than the Kingston will, and
several persons have signified their willingness to cover thiB money when
the two boats are put on the route.
The Olympian is the more expensive
vessel of the two, for running.

Of Dr. Orpha D. Baldwin, who lectures on Friday night at Herring's
Opera House, under the awn-
pices of the ladies of the V7. C. T. U.,
the Union Signal aays: "Mrs. Monroe
was followed by Dr. Orpha D. Baldwin,
of Cleveland, State Superintendent ol
the Health Department. Dr. Baldwin
had her subject thoroughly in hand.
Her address was given in a charming
manner, her practical suggestions wore
illustrated by frequent reference to her
fine manikin. Her address drew out
the liveliest questioning from interested
hearers, all of which Dr. Baldwin
promptly answered. No exercise of the
conference Beemed to awaken greater
interest than that devoted to the Health
Department. No department of our
work is needed in Ohio than thiB, and
we hope that local unions will call Dr.
Baldwin to lecture on thissubjeet. They
will surely be both pleased aud Instructed by her exceptionally interesting and
spicy address."

Children Cry for Pitcher's Csstorla.
A Grand Programme.
The programme of proposed street improvements laid before the city council
last night by the Board of Works is a
splendid move in the inarch of progress.
It is the most comprehensive aud beat
arranged that has ever been presented
to the ratepayers, and aa such cannot
fail to meet with general approval. The
programme includes the opening of
Thome street and North Arm road their
entire length, a moat necessary work as
at present these important streets are
inaccessible and persons wishing to
build are unable to do bo. Halifax street
is to be opened through to Moody
square, London street from Dock square
through to the Thome road, and Dublin
street through to Montreal street,
These improvements will give an impetus to building in the west end that will
prove the value of the work before the
season is over. Several other streets
are to be opened out in the west end,
all of which are absolutely necessary.
Park lane, Clinton street, St. Georges
street, and many streets are to bo opened out to the city limits. The upper
part of Edinburgh and Douglas streets
are to be widened to their full width,
and Columbia street will be carried its
full width as far as the new hospital.
This hist named improvement will make
Columbia street the finest in the whole
province. Columbia and Front streets
will be macadamized from the C. P. R.
crossing to Blackwood street, and new
sidewalks laid down. Work aggregating
$22,000 will bo done on the following
streets: Melbourne, Leopold Place,
Brown, Agnes, Prevoat, Carnarvon,
Royal avenue, Queen's avenue, Pellinm,
Montreal, Patrick, Clements, St. John,
St. Andrew, Blackwood. Merivale, Mc-
Kenzie, Gloucester, Fianer, Trew nnd
Dufferin, and St. Georges and St. Patricks squares. The purchase of a stone
crusher, for tho manufacture of macadam, has also been decided. on, aud it
will be imported almost immediately.
With all those improvements, together
with the many other private enterprises,
the coining season will be the liveliest
and most prosperous in tho history of
Westminster.

length; that Halifax street be opened

That Park Lane, Clinton street, St.
George's street and Mary street be opened out to the city limits; that the upper
part of Douglas aud Edinburgh streets
(beyond the present contract), be opened to the full width; that Columbia
street lie carried full width as far as the
new hospital.
That the necessary work, according
to the detailed programme iu possession
of the Board of Works, amounting in
the aggregate to $22,000, be dono on the
following streets; Brown, Carnarvon,
Prevost, Agnes, Royal Avenue, Queen9!
Avenue, Pelhain, Montreal, Melbourne,
Leopold Place, Patrick, Clement (the
lower part), St. John, St. Andrews,
Merrivale, Blackwood, McKenzie, St.
George's aud St. Patrick's Square, Gloucester, Trew, Duflerin and Fisher streets.
That the sidewalk on Columbia street
be renewed as far at least as Blackwood
street, and that Columbia street from
Blackwood to the C. P. R. crossing, and
the earth filled portion of Front Btreet,
west of the pleasure grounds, be macadamized.
That a by-law to raise the sum of $06,-
000, necessary to carry out the above
programme, be submitted to the rate-
on Her Trial Trip.
Yesterday afternoon, despite the wet
weather, a merry crowd of gentlemen,
principally representatives of the canning and steamboat companies of the
province, embarked on Mr. A. Ewen's
new steamer, the Constance, which left
the C. P. N. wharf at 2 o'clock on her
makers' trial trip. The little craft under
command of Capt. A. Carthew, made a
quick run down to Rocky Point and
back at the rate of eight knots per hour.
It had been the intention-to go further
down the straits, but on account of one
of the party feeling a little disposed to
feed the fishes the steamer turned back,
the engines were pushed a little, although they were not fully openediout,
and the boat made a rate of 11 knots
per hour on her return run. The Constance was built by Messrs. Spratt &
Gray, and is a model of comfort, strength
and adaptability to the business. Among
those on board were D. J. Munn, R.
Ward, A. Ewen, R. P. Rithet, Capt.
Jonn Irving, Jas. Mann, M. M. English,
J. Reid, Chief Engineer McArthur, of
theC. P. N. Co., J. A. Laidlaw, B.
DouglaB, G. Byrnes, and W. A. Russell,
boiler inspector.—Sunday's Colonist.
The IT. S. customs officials at Port
Townsend are non-plusaed by a "heathen

specific rate of $60 per Chinaman, but
claims to be classed as "manufactures of
wood," the wood forming the most valuable part of the whole article—rate of
duty 20 per cent. Meantime he is subsisting on lady charlotte gelatine and
other luxuries at the expense of Uncle

payers as soon as possible.
Tho board further recommend that
they be empowered to proceed at once
with the following parts of the above
Erogramine : The sidewalk on Colum-
ia street, the purchase of a stoue-
cmshing machine, certain work on Prevost street west of Blackwood, the opening of London Btreet, and that part of
the Thorn Road east of Douglas street.
Tlie council went into committee of
the whole on the report, Aid. Sinclair in
the chair.
His Worship explained that the city
had now nrrived at such a period in its
history that It would be suicidal to stop
progress. This work had to be done,
aim tho sooner it was taken hold of the
better it would be for the city's interests.
Any attempt to keen back the work of
improvement would result disastrously.
Tho city was growing now as it had
nevor grown before, and every opportunity for expansion must bo given. He
would say Mint in tho whole programme
there was not one cent of fancy work,
and it was a programme that the citizens would heartily support. Up to the
present all streets made were only
makeshifts; by tho purchase of a stone
crusher and the use of macadam the
the work would bo permanent. It has
been ascertained thnt a stone-crusher,
engine, boiler, wharf, etc., would only
cost the city about $4,000, but tho lasting quality of the work would soon repay
this outlay.
Aid. MePhaden advised striking out
tlie stone-crusher item, and said he
didn't think there was much need for a
crusher anyhow.
Aid. Johnson supported the Mayor,
aud strongly advised that a crusher be
purchased, even if it had to be paid for
out of the general revenue. Some better material than gravel was required on
the streets.
Aid. McPhaden tried to get a seconder
to his resolution that the crusher item
be struck out, but failed.
The report was adopted aud the com
inlttee rose and reported.
Aid, Hoy thought it was time the park
committee got to work,
Aid. Sinclair said work would be commenced as soon as the weather will permit.
Aid. Hoy wanted to know what had
been dono about preparing the city
pound. The 1st of April would soon be
nt hand, and things should be roady.
Tho Health committee was ordered to
make the necessary arrangements.
Tho Sanitary By-law and Conveyance
of Streots By-law were read a first tihio.
On motion it was decided to publish a
standing notice to tlie effect that no more
streets would be accepted by tho city
unless plans of subdivision wore first
laid before the Council.
The Mayor asked tho Council to adjourn till Wednesday, as there were
some points in the Street Railway Bill
in which the city's interests were not
properly guarded, and which required
discussion. He believed tho Co. was
willing to meet the city In the matter.
The Council then adjourned to meet
again Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock,
