A Possible Event.
London, April 1.—It is now said on
the highest official authority, as well as
being matter of common gossip in Par
liament and at clubs, that tbe Queen is
seriously considering tbe. step of abdicating the British throne. The recent
reception of the Prince of Wales by the
German Emreror has bad a great effect
on the aged Queen, who is now convinced that her son ought to have a chance
to play the leading role In England during the last of her life, which Ib certain
to be short. Tlie Queen's bodily infirmity is increasing and she is so
rapidly running to flesh that massage is
iieceflij'arv to assist -her breathing. One
strong objection the Queen bas to abdicating is the contingency of being called
ex-Queen. She wishes to assume the
title of Queen Regent for tlie rest of her
life. A special bill will be introduced
into Parliament when she is willing to
resign the actual throne and tho Prince
of Wales will he crowned King of England and Emperor of India.

to tlie Chinese Enumeration Bill which
bas already passed the house, and which
is before the Senate for consultation.
Dr, Smith then moved the adoption of
a resolution protesting against tlie proposed legislation. "As an unrighteous

when lie said he was a Christian minister I was surprised. I do not realize

such a bill as this to pass. Thank God

which we possess, if this bill is a specimen of it. The resolutions were adopted in spite of a vigorous "No" from Rev.

and representatives are requested to do

Hardly had Dr, Smith finished reading the resolutions than Rev. Jesse H.
Jones, of Ah ington, sprang to h'is feet
and vigorously protested against the
resolutions. As a Christian minister
and a Knight of Labor, he declared that
tho Chinese were a pestiferous force,
and ought to he excluded from the
country as a protection to the
American people This speech set

and half a dozen rose to reply to the sentiment expressed hy tho Ablugtou
brother. Rev. Win. E. Griffin warmly
seconded tho resolution and declared
that the United States had no more

House wont into Committe, Mr.
Mason in the chair, ou tlie message accompanying the County Courts Bui, referred hack to the House for amendment.
Comnittee rose, recommending that
the third wading of the bill Tie discharged and the bill recommitted.
The third reading of the hill was,
after the adoptiou of the report, discharged and tne Hon. Mr. Davie moved
that the bill be sent back to committee.
Tlie House went into committee, Mr.
Smith chairman. Committee rose and
sported progress.   -
Hon. Mr. Davie, moved the second
reading of the bill respecting the estates
of intestates. The mover said some such
measure as this had long beeu a necessity. Since the earliest days of the
Province this want had been heavily
felt. Estates of persons deceased were
usually administered by tho registrar of
the court, and although honesty and
ability had unvaryingly beeu displayed
in such'management, it was undoubtedly a fact that a change would be wel
coined. The registrar's time wbb
largely taken up by attention to other
duties, and money derived from Intestate estates, under other direction, could
be much more profitably bestowed than
at present.
Messrs. Martin and Smith supported
the bill, which passed its second reading
and was committed, Mr. Cunningham
chairman. Committee rose and reported progress aud asked leave to sit again
at next sitting of the House'.
Hon. Mr. Vernon presented the report of a select committee appointed to
ascertain particulars of certain rock reservations made by the Hudson's Bay
Co. prior to 1802. Re; t ordered to be
printed.
- Hou. Mr. Davie presented a return of
orders-in-counell and other documents
which preceded the appointment of Mr.
Justice Drake as a commissioner to investigate certain charges preferred in
connection with tho management of the
Victoria fail.
Hon. Mr. Robson rose and said that
since the Inst sitting of the House
death had boon busy In their inks, Mr.
Edward Allen having been called away.
It had been thought proper by the honorable members, out of respect to tho
memory of the deceased, to adjourn on
Tuesday until the following Tuesday.
This would also tide over the Easter
holidays and give honorable members n
chance to visit their homes.
House adjourned at 5.55 pan, until
2 p.m. next day.
The proceedings iu the Houso to-day
wore of u more than usually subdued
character. The desk formedv occupied
by Mr. Alton wus draped In black crape
and black aud white ribbon rosettes,

Ottawa, March 24,
THE SENATE.
On Wednesday last Hon. Mr. Clemow
asked for the second reading of "The
Orange Association Bill." Hon. Mr.
Scott objected to the bill. Hon. Mr.
O'Donohue supported the last speaker.
Hon. Mr. McMillan supported the bill.
Tbe Senate divided on tbe motion,
which was agreed to by tlie following
vote: yeas 32, nays 20.
HOUSE  OF COMMONS,
On Monday, in reply to Sir Richard
Cartwright's question, "What quantity
of street rails, or iron rails, wore purchased for the use of tlie Intercolonial
Railway iu tlie fiscal year 1889?" Sir
John A. Macdonald said: "There were
7,000 tons iu the fiscal year 1888-80, and
5,000 tons in tho fiscal year 1887-88."
In reply to Mr. Landcrkin, Hon. Mr.
Haggurt stated that tbe Government do
not. intend to guarantee tbe safe delivery
of all money sent in registered letters.
Hon. Mr. Dewdney, in reply to Mr.
Duvin, stated that tbe Government considered that the granting of second
homesteads wus not beneficial to the
interests of the whole North-West.
Mr. McMillan moved, "That it is expedient to remove the duty ou artificial
fertilizers and to place them on the free
list." He said: I cannot see why the
fanner*, of Canada should not be allowed
this relief. In studying the history of
the use of these fertilizers, I find it was
only in 1842 that artificial fertilizers began to be used, and it was not until
1884 and 1885 thut superphosphates
were successfully prepared and used as
an artificial fertilizer, and all that took
place iu Great Britain. I bold that
every possible encouragement ought to
be given to tbe agricultural industry of
this country. Will the Government of
Canada take u lesson from Prince Bismarck? It is necessary for the farmers
of to-day to uso all tbe artificial manure
they can possibly find, as well as all the
natural manures tbey can produce, and
it is certainly the duty of the Government to give them this relief. If it is
part of tlie national policy to do nothing
to relieve tbe agricultural community,
the sooner the farmers know it the bet*
ter. Our agricultural implements are
taxed, our fertilizers arc taxed; in fact
everything wo havo to buy is taxed.  .
Mr. Hesson could not see any reason
for t-liQ removal of the tax.
Mr. McMillan said that tbe member
for North Perth (Mr. Hesson) has just
shown bis ignorance of tlio question
with reference to tbe salt industry.
Salt is not a real fertilizer, and when
you use it alone you run the risk of injuring tlie laud. ' In the county of Huron,
where we wore accustomed to buy salt
at 75 cents we now havo to pay $1.25 for
it, Tlie export of agricultural products
for 1880-81-82-83 amounted to over $24,-
000,000; while in 1880 we only exported
to the amount of $13,000,000. We find
that in Ontario 4,710,017 acres are used
iu growing oats, fall wheat, spring
wheat, barley, rye and peas.
Mr. Ferguson said: The object of our
putting a duty on fertilizers ia to prevent tho importation of rubbish from
the United States. A fertilizer is of no
value until it had hud a proper analysis
and its constituent elements are found
to be of a proper character.
Mr. Armstrong next spoke. The motion waa negatived on a division
The Houso then resumed consideration of tlie proposed motion of Mr.
Eseiihaurer, declaring the expediency
of raising the bounty now allowed fishermen in proportion to the increased
bounty allowed the manufacturers of
pig iron.
Air. Kerrv acknowledged that the fishermen iu his own country were in distress and had applied for relief.
THE ItYKEKT SCANDAL.
After recess, Hon. Mr. Kirkpatrick resumed the adjourned debate on the proposed motion of Sir Richard Cartwright
with respect to the conduct of John
Charles Rykert, member for Lincoln
and Niagara, declaring it to be discreditable, corrupt aud scandalous. He said:
I think the honorable gentleman, (Sir
Richard Cartwright), has asked us to
take a very important matter into consideration. It is our duty to maintain
tlie dignity and purity of this House,
and if any" member is proven to bo unworthy 01 a seat In it, or to be guilty of
and aliens under contract or agreement
to perform labor in Canada was resumed.
Sir Richard Cartwright, Hon. Mr, Mitchell, Sir John A. Macdonald, Hon. Mr.
Mills, Sir John Thompson, Hon. Mr.
Laurier, Mr. Mulock and Mr. Casey
taking part. The matter was referred
to a select committee,
Mr. Casgrain moved the second read-
of his bill "For further securing the Independence of Parliament." The bill
was read a second time.
Mr. Charlton's "Elections Act" was
tbe item to call for the attention of the
House. Sir John A. Macdonald moved
that tbe bill be read a second time this
day six months, which was carried on
tbe following division: Yeas, 103; nays,
00. Messrs. Barnard, Earle, Mara, Prior
and Gordon voted for Sir John's amendment. On Thursday the "Patent Ballot Boxes" question was introduced by
Hon. Mr. Chapleau and referred to a
select committee for consideration. Hon.
Mr. Foster introduced bis bill on "Banks
and Banking." The House In supply
voted tbe following: Northwest Mounted

Hon. Petor Mitchell Bald: I listened
to tho earnest speech of tho member for
South Oxford (Sir Richard Cartwright),
and I felt that honorable gentleman was
simply doing his duty, not only to tbe
House and the country, but to hia fellow-
members. I condemn the course of the
honorable member for Lincoln (Mr. Rykert), as much as tho honorable member for South Oxford does. He stands
self-accused; he is caught red-bunded;
he is caught iu the act, if wo are to
judge him hy his own letters aud correspondence. He has used his high position as a member of parliament and has
attempted to hifiueiice ministers and
wanted money from bis partner becuuso
he had to use It iu thut way. Curses,
like chickens, may como homo to roost,
aud we may have to pass under the ordeal of a majority of tlie House, und
may be expelled hum our seats without
having the opportunity of making a defense.
Hon, Mr. Laurier suid, referring to
Mr. Klrkpatrick's motion, declaring Mr,
Rykert's documents and letter, so fur us
they refer to members of the Cabinet to
be untrue: So this is the result of tho
long deliberation of tbo Government
upon this matter. Can it be that the
sense of right and wrong, of honor and
of shame, can be so dull on the other
side of tlio I louse that the members are
not able to sec whether tho act charged
against tho member for Lincoln is censurable, or forsooth, if not, perhaps.
commendable? There is 110 question of
justice or fair play iu asking that this
matter be referred to the committee on
privileges and elections,

FAVORS THK BRIDOK.
Editor Columbian—Sir:—■"PUedrlv-
er's" suggestion in yesterday's issue
fully indorses my sentiment in regard to
the desire of a bridge In preference to a
ferry, as climatic influences are not to
be relied upon to continuously guarantee
unobstructions to navigation, and an
assimilation to tlie "swan-like Kde K,"
with an ico breaker, would necessarily
bo the product of the appropriated $50,-
000, with an annual expense of from
$0,000 to $10,000 for fuel and manipulation.
Approximately speaking, a very substantial bridge structure can be built for
$100,000, less than twice the cost of a
ferry, with comparatively no expense
attached, and no unnecessary delay in
constructing, as the materials required
are all within easy reach, and a bridge
would, when completed, supercede the
services of two ferry boats.
Should our financiers publicly intimate their inability to solve the intricacies of the problem by not caring to
raise a sufficient sum to give the scheme
a fair trial, then why not concede to
private enterprise and local capital
privileges entitling them to a guarantee
011 conditions that they successfully operate and maintain a bridge for a certain period.

pucks for this season. He has placed
orders in Portland for years past for
from 30,000 to 50,000 cases of Columbia
river salmon, but will not attempt to do
business with Columbia river cannerymen this season. He says the tendency
all along tbe line is for lower prices, and
British Columbia salmon Ib now quoted
in the English market in equality with
tbe standard brands of Columbia river
salmon, and cannerymen there, realizing tho condition of affairs on the Columbia river, and being able to get raw fish
almost as cheap as In Alaska, intend
forcing the business. A number of new
plants will be put in operation. Ideas
of trade generally as to prices range
from $1 for Alaska tb $1.25 tor Columbia
river brands, aud at these prices, which
fishermen on tbo Columbia aro demanding for raw fish, it is utterly impracticable for cannerymen to do business. If
cannerymen could effect' an organization among themselves so as to regulate
the price of fish, and only run such canneries as could he worked most economically,' there might bo some show for
them.—Exchange.

TUESDAY EVENING, APRIL 1, 1880.
THE WEEK BEFORE EASTER.
Sunday last was Palm Sunday, tbe
first day of tbe last week in Lent. In
these business-like times of the nineteenth century, we scarcely remember
that in the earlier centuries of the
Christian age, tbe seven days which
included Maundy Thursday and Good
Friday were almost if not quite given
up to religious exercises, known as
Holy Week, Painful Week, the Days of
Suffering, and by others called tbe
Great Week; these lust seven days previous to the great Easter festival, were
most rigorously gloomy and penitential. Austerity was enforced and
Epipbanices says that biead and water
only were allowed. St. Chrysostoin
tells us that during this week It was
customary for the early Christians to
increase their alms to the poor, and
to better commemorate the Redemption,
prisoners were set at liberty, a very
charitable proceeding no doubt, but
rather against the maintenance of law
and order, we should think. Servants
were exempted from their usual duties
in order that they might be moro devotional, but games and pastimes only too
frequently, we are told, usurped the attention which should have been given
to exhortations in the parish churches.
In the Roman Catholic countries, and
even in England, tho sombre offices of
the Tenebrae and the Via Cruets are
performed with scrupulous fidelity, and
in Austria the monarch still goes through
the ceremonial of washing the feet of
twelve beggars on Holy Saturday. At
the Chapel Royal, in England, tho
Maundy Thursday charities of the
Queen are still distributed, and tbe old
fashioned silver coins disbursed to lucky
recipients, Fasting, however, is not fashionable just now, except with porijons
like Dr, Tanner, who starve themselves
to make a living, and to whom Lent
aud Easter, Christmas or Whitsuntide,
make little difference. The remembrance of these bygone solemnities
serves to remind us of the vast difference In thought, temperament, and mode
of life between the men of our day and
our ancestors of the first centuries of the
Christian era.
Gay, in "The Dog and the Fox," addresses a lawyer as follows,
'I know you lawyers can with case
Twist words and meanings as you please."
and further on
'TIs the fee directs the sense
To make out either side's pretence."
Crabbe   waa   the originator   of   the
simile which compared lawyers to spiders and clients to flies, whilst Gray
wrote "Examples show me that It is
" not absolutely necessary to be a block-
" head to succeed in this profession."
Shelby was ferocious in characterising
Chancery and the Lord Chancellor thus,
"The earth consuming hell
Of which thou art a demon."
and Coleridge went almost as  far when
he    wrote,   describing   tbe    Devil's
thoughts,
"He saw a lawyer killing a viper
On a dunghill hard by his own stable!
And the Devil smiled, for it put him In mind
Of Cain and his brother Abel."
We all remember Hamlet's reference to
the "laws's delay," and Tennyson is bitterly sarcastic when speaking of
"The lawless science of our law."
Whenever, indeed, we ;tlnd a reference
to law and lawyers in poetry, it Ib almost
sure to be uncomplimentary, to say tho
least. The profession of the black robe,
however, has lived and thriven in spite
of the hostility of poets and the satire of
writers like Dickens, and until men agree
never more to dispute, it Ib safe to predict that all the virulence aud sarcasm
ever penned will be about as hurtful ub
water poured on a duck's hack.
endurable, by carrying protectionist
principles to their logical conclusion,
which is prohibition.
Adaptation of Exercise.—-In his new
book on the "Physiology of Bodily Exercise," Dr. Fernand Lagrange points
out that the different persons have been
too little considered. For the lively
stimulation of the nerve-centres difficult
exercises are to be preferred to automatic exercises; but for persons whose
brainB must be spared while the muscles
are being fatigued, easy, instinctive exercises are most suitable. Fencing,
gymnastics with apparatus aud lessons
iu a riding school should be prescribed
to idle persons whose brains languish
for work. The effort of will and the
work of co-ordination which these ex
ercises demand will give a healthful
stimulus to the torpid cerebral cells,
But for a child overworked at school, for
a person whoso nerve-centres are congested owing to persistent mental effort,
we must prescribe long walks, the easily
learned exercise of rowing, and, failing
better, the old game of leap-frog, running games, anything, in fact, rather
than difficult exercises and acrobatic
gymuaticB.
MAPLE RIDGE NOTES.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A DISTINCTION AND   A  DIFFERENCE.
While our American neighbors are
evincing a disposition, as exemplified in
the report of the Committee on Foreign
Relations to Congress, recently, for unrestricted reciprocity with Canada, they
cannot altogether relinquish tbe idea
that the free trade benefits desired
should come to them iu the form of commercial union, notwithstanding that
Canada, through its public men and its
newspapers, bus given clear and unmistakable expression that it would have no
such thing, although not averse to free
trade or unrestricted reciprocity, either
in principle or practice. The United
States, being the stronger power, is loath
to give Canada equal advantages with
itself in a free trade compact between
the two countries, hut desires to throw
the bonds of commercial union around
the young, lusty aud independent Dominion, and dictate from Washington the
trade relatione of tbe whole North American continent with the rest of the
civilized world, well knowing that commercial union, so far as Canada is concerned, would mean nothing short of
political absorption, and that speedily
Although the direct agitation for commercial union has been dropped in the
United States, there are not wanting
signs that the movements in Congress in
the direction of unrestricted reciprocity,
noted recently, are not altogether sincere. A measure of free trade, or perhaps even unrestricted reeeprocity,
with the American Republic Canada, as
a whole, it is not too much to say, is de
cidedly in favor of; but it is the selfish
attitude on the question heretofore persisted in by the United States that has
made any satisfactory adjustment of the
trade relations between the two countries impossible, and which threatens
to hinder, if not prevent, such a consummation ili the future. For, desirable as free trade with the United States
may be, from a Canadian as well as an
American standpoint, Canada will never
consent to barter tbe practical commercial and political independence which
Bhe now enjoys to gain its advantages,
and the "big Republic" might as well
make a note of this fact before going any
farther. The people "of Cf.nada can not
be cajoled, wheedled, or bulldozed Into
accepting the millstone of commercial
union for the bread of free trade or unrestricted reciprocity, and don't you forget It, Uncle Sam, already,
LAWYERS AND POETS.
What possible connection can there
be between poetry and law? The fonnor
deals with tho ideal, tho latter with the
real, especially real estate. And yet
the poets of all ages have shown a liking
to satariw. law and the lawyers. Chau
cer'B sergeant of the law lu the Canterbury Tales "seemed busier than he
was," a flue touch of irony, and Quarles
in describing tho Golden Age, says in a
gratulatory way—
"Thore was no client then to waft
The pleasures of his long tailed advocate."
Daniel in his lines on Lord Keeper
Egerton is more directly cutting, describing the law as being,
"A science that by nature breeds contention,
Strife and ambiguities."
Bishop Hall, after speaking of the law
as "falling down from Heaven's height"
adds
"Woe to tbo weal whero many lawyers aro."
It Is hardly fair to quote Hudihras, as
Butler did not write without prejudice,
but Thomson  in  bis  Seasons Ib plain
spoken enough
"The tolls of law, which dark insidious mon
Have cumbrous added to perplex tho truth."
It is now stated that Prince Bismarck
resigned on a constitutional question.
He insisted ou ministerial responsibility,
while the young Emperor would not
tolerate any interference with his designs. This phase of the dispute gives
rise to fresh feelings of alarm.
Sir Henry Parkes, the political leader
of Australia, owns a sixpence which waB
the first money he ever earned. He
stepped ashore penniless and friendless
at Sydney half a century ago, and got
the sixpence for holding a horse in front
of a tavern while the owner went inside
to get a drink.
SiBter Rose Gertrude, the English girl
who desired to devote her life to nursing
the lepers at Molakai, Honolulu, will
not, it is said, be permitted by the Gov
eminent to go to the leper station, which
is under charge of the the Sisters of the
Sucred Heart, who do not wish any interference from a member of another
ordor.
- The Esquimaux of Greenland can
now boast of a newspaper. It is called
tbe .Reader, and its editor, one Lars
Mueller, Bets it up and , prints it. He
also designs and engraves the illustrations. His printing establishment waB
only a makeshift, but the members of a
Danish literary society, having heard of
Mailer's difficulties, seiit him new type,
printing ink, paper, and a large press.
Says an American exchange: The
Tariff Bill is now before Congress. It
involves a reduction of the revenue to
the estimated amount of $00,000,000.
The estimated revenue is only $93,000,-
000 above the estimated expenditure.
Of that amount the sinking fund calls
for $49,000,000. This leaves only $44,-
000,000 BurpluB. Congress must, therefore, either modify the reduction, lop
off some of the appropriations, encroach
upon the sinking fund or leave a deficit
—and of all the alternatives, the last is
the worst.
So many alligators are shot for the
mere sport of shooting in the Southern
States that they are becoming scarce,
and it is only in unfrequented streams
and impenetrable swamps that they are
numerous. The demand for full-grown
alligators for northern museums and
aquariums begins with the warm days
of the spring, and many an alligator's
retreat bas been carefully marked by
the alligator catchers, who, when the
signs are ripe, will dig the samians out
and sell them at from $1 to $2 per foot,
according to the length of the animals.
The negroes loop ropes around tbe big
alligators and drag them out in triumph.
—Ex.
The woman suffragists in England are
not idle, notes an exchange. At South-
port the movement ib organized under
the name of the Guild of the Unrepresented, and at a recent meeting a number of ladies spoke. One speaker was
very pointed in her remarks, expressing
the opinion that the reason why women
did not get the franchise was that the
two parties were debating iu their own
mind which would get the woman vote,
and advising her sister members not to
place themselves in the undignified
position of canvassing for parliamentary
candidates who will not support woman
franchise. From which it will be Been,
as is probably already suspected, that
the woman suffragists in England have
pretty correct ideas as well as wills of
their own.
Two exhibitions, at least, aro announced to take place lu London this
year, and no Inconsiderable ones at that.
One is the Royal Military Exhibition,
which will contain the largest collection
of aruiB and equipments ever got together. The War Offlco and the Government of India will exhibit largely, and
the opening Is sot down for the 7th of
May. Then, the International exhibition of mining and metallurgy will open
in London this summer. The collection
will comprise metals aud ores, their
manufactured products and the machinery which manufactures them, and in
addition special departments as to minerals and their condition. A thorough
examination of one branch of science
and Industry such as this, undertaken
in a single exhibition, must have Its advantages.
The Philadelphia Press, a Republican
paper which on such questions is supposed to speak for the Republican leaden and the administration, says Mr.
Hitt's amended proposal for closer trade
relations does not go far-enough. Tlie
Canadian tariff, It says, must be made
Identical with tho United States tariff
before the United States can think of
listening to closer trade proposals:
"Unless these alterations were mode,
every Canadian port would become a
gigantic smuggling depot for all goods
on which duties were lower In the Canadian tariff than our own. This would
be true of sugar, Iron, cotton, woollens,
and a number of the most important articles on other schedules. No reciprocity will stand a day unless It puts the
same protective fence around both countries.'*
The Press implies that the quickest
way of bringing about closer relations
between the two countries is for one or
both to make the existing relations un-

THE VALUE OF TIME.
In Some Ouei It Can Hardly Bo EiU.
muted lu Monoy.
In these days of high-pressure business methods the element of time Is an
exceedingly important consideration.
The events of commercial and social
life crowd upon each other so rapidly
that the average man of affairs is compelled to practice a severe economy in
tbe disposal of the hours and minutes.
It is astonishing how much work can be
accomplished in a few moments when
the mind has been disciplined to act
promptly and the business in hand is thoroughly systematized. The telegraph,
telephone and stenographer are simply
an extra expense to the person who can
not utilize them to conserve his time.
The managers of great enterprises and
the controllers of largo investments are
usually much sought after in the social
and political world.' They are compelled to parcel out every working
moment with almost miserly exactness.
The value of time to them can scarcely
be estimated in money. Not that suoh
men deny themselves a sensible amount
of rejt and recreation. They know
these are essential.
Perhaps the worst evil the preoccupied business man has to con tend against
is the idle and aimless lounger who
haunts the pathways of commerce and
steals more valuable time than prooras
tinatlon ever did. All sorts of expedients are resorted to in the effort to
avoid the depredations of this nuisance.
He enters your office and engages you
in conversation about every thing in
general and nothing in particular, while
the precious minutes go gliding by.
You feel kindly enough toward all mankind, but the iron enters your soul as
you realise that the man is a robber,
who is filching, a part of your life and
pilfering the golden moments as they
pass. In all probability you suddenly
round up the conversation with a piece of
biting sarcasm that rids you of the tor*
mentor, but makes of him an enemy for
life.
In large industrial establishments
where a great number ot men are employed the introduction of all time*
saving appliances is absolutely essential. Avery little waste of time per
capita, when multiplied by the total
number of employes, amounts to enough,
in many cases, to absorb the entire
profits of a close business. For this reason nearly all extensive mill operators
enforce some system of keeping the
time of the employes. One thousand
men five minutes late each morning for
a week would be the equivalent of fifty
men idle for ten hours; and supposing
they are paid at the rate of 82.B0 per
day, thorp would be a loss of 8135. A
Massachusetts mill owner who employs
several thousand people recently calculated that it cost him about an hundred
dollars whenever a brass bund passed
his works. While the piece-price plan
which is in foroo in nearly all shoo
factories tends to prevent loss from
lack of punctuality, it can not entirely
do so because during the ubsence of the
work-people a valuable power plant
and thousands of dollars' worth ot machinery are lying idle.
It is exceedingly important In all
branches of industry, and indeed in all
tho pursuits ana relations of life, that
the value of time should be properly estimated, so that people may not only
use tholr own to good advantage but res-
. olutely refrain from wasting the time of
others.—Shoe and Leather Review.
HOME  HINTS AND  HELPS.
—A pair of bellows to blow the dust
out of the corners makes sweeping of
stairs easy.
—Dip dishes in hot water and • tripe,
rather than to stand them on a dusty
stove shelf or black stove, and afterwards soil the tablecloth with them.
• —Baked Apples.—Wash the apples,
wipe dry and remove the cores; fill the
holes with sugar, add a littlo spice, put
half a cupful of hot water in tho pan
and bake tbe apples until tender; servo
with sponge cake.—Boston Herald.
—Spare your hands as well as your
temper by inverting the top of the fruit
jar for a minute or two In hot water before attempting to remove it Canned'
fruit should always be opened two or
tbreo hours before, it is needed as the
flavor is muoh finer when the oxygen is
fully restored.   ^r
—White merino underclothing, when
past wearing, makes excellent wash-
rags and cleaning cloths, and nothing
makes better holders for either ironing
or use about the stove than cast oil
woolen hosiery covered with thick
drilling. It is a good plan to mako the
covers for iron-holders in tho form of a
bag, then they can be slipped off and
washed when soiled.
—Ability to use up "scraps" or "leftovers", will add greatly to the attractions of a breakfast-table. Any bits of
. cold fnoat, fowl or game can be finoly
minced, and, it the quantity is sniull,
half the bulk of bread crumbs, cold
boiled rice or mlncod boiled potatoes
may be added and a little ot somo gravy
to moisten it. Serve it on toast or surrounded with tiny points of toast, or
little cakes of mashed potatoes fried in
drippings, or with poached or fried eggs.
—Demorost.
—Bread and raising pudding.—Cut
some thin slices of stale bread and butter, Arrange them in layers in a buttered pudding dish with a sprinkling of
ratslns, stoned and chopped, between
each layer, and cover all with a custard
made in the proportions of four eggs
and a small cup of sugar to a quart of
milk. Flavor with lemon and bake In
a well-heated oven until the custard is
set and the top delicately browned.—
Rural New Yorker.
—Let home stand first before all
other things. No matter how high your
ambition may transcend Its duties, no
matter how tar your talents or your influence may roach beyond its doors, before every thing elso build up a true
home. Be not its slave; be its minister.
Let it not be enough that It Is swept
and garnished, that its food is good; but
feed the love in it, feed the truth in It,
feed thought and aspiration, feed all
charity .and gentleness in it Then from
its walls shall come forth tbe true
woman and the true man, who shall to*
gether rule and blest the land.—Ex*
An Kxile In Japan,
We were joined at table by a foreign
gentleman with high obeek-bones, yellow face and Blanting eyes, and dressed
in the latest European fashion with
high collar, four-in-hand scarf and
pointed shoes. He was very courteous,
and managed what little English he
knew as skilfully as he dresses. And
he gave me a touch of the far East in
the story of bis being here; for he is
under a cloud, an amiable exile whose
roturn to his native land might Involve
. his being boiled in oil, or other ingenious form of death. For well as he figured at luncheon with us, I hear that
he has been obliged to leave because of
his having poisoned too many of his
guests one day at table—former enemies of his—and because of his having
iltspatohed with the sword those whose
digestion had resisted his efforts at conciliation. However this may be, his extradition is demanded, to which be objects, and invokes Western ideas of civilisation, and protests that his excesses
have been merely political—John La
Farge, In Century.

THE GAY TOURACO;
When Exposed to the Bain His Beaatlfal
Colors Disappear.
At the present moment the menagerie
of the Zoological Society, Regent's
Park, has an unusually large number of
touracos, a species of birds which has
not before been exhibited in this country. Touraco Is the native name of a
beautiful group of birds peculiar to
Africa, and sometimes called, from their
food, plantain eaters. They are generally supposed to be allied to the
cuckoos, and they are not altogether
unlike some of them in their external
characters. An African traveler observed so long- ago as 1818 that the
plantain eaters during heavy showers
hide themselves in the thickest foliage,
as if they had a special dread of getting wet.
There is nothing particularly remark-
ableabout this; in fact, many birds show
a dislike to getting wet feathers, but
the touracos have a muoh better reason
for this dislike than most other birds.
M. Vorreaux, the traveler referred to,
discovered the reason when he attempted to catch a touraco which was sheltering itself during a storm of rain. He
found that when be grasped the feathers
the brilliant crimson coloring matter
stained his hands, and later he discovered that tho feathers could be washed
almost white.
To And colors that "run" in the feathers of a bird is most unexpected, and it is
not surprising to hear that one naturalist who purchased somo skins thought
himself to havo bocn deceived with art!-
floally-paintcd birds. The color comes
out so readily that when a touraco is
shot and falls into a pool it stains the
surrounding water not so much with its
blood as with the red dye from its wing
feathers. TourueoB are not, however, entirely colored by this peculiar substance;
they have a great deal of groon about
them, and this green is duo to the pres?
ence of a green pigment which appears
to be convertible into tho rod substance
by prolonged boiling. The green pigment, unlike the red, is a "fast" color.
Most birds thut aro colored green owe
this color, at loast partly, to fine markings upon tho foathors, and all "metallic" colors, such as the brilliant greens,
blues and reds of the humming birds aro
due to optical effects caused by the
structure of the feathers, and have nothing to do with any pigment of the same
color within tho substance of the feathers. There are thus two sources of
color among birds, and it is a remarkable fact thut In many cases where tho
male birds have a brilliant coloration
and tho females are' soberly clad the
color is a "mechanically" caused color;
for Instance, in tho humming birds.
The touracos do not show this difference
between tho sexos; the female resembles her mate, and thero is no superiority on either side, but an absolute equality.—Chambers' Journal.
ABRAHAM'S OAK.
A Tree Reveroneed Alike by Jew, Christian und Mohammedan.
The old oak at Mamrc, in Syria, or, as
it is known everywhere, "Abraham's
Oak," is ono of tho most famous and
venerable troes in the world. It is rev-
eronced alike by Jew, Christian and
Mahometan, for it is supposed to mark
the spot where the patriarch pitched his
tent in the desort. There is a superstition in Jerusalem, and in all the country about, that whoever shall cut or injure this tree wlll lose his first-born son.
So for centuries It hus beon allowed to
toss its gnarled and contorted limbs in
tho gules which sweep from the Mediterranean over the Syrian plains.
This troo was visited by Sir Joseph
Hooker in tho autumn of 18(10, and In
his paper upon Syrian oaks, read the
following yoar before tho Linnaean Society (Transactions, xxiii), ho gavo a
description of it and a portraitdrawn by
bis own hand.
Abraham's Oak was found to belong to
Quercus pseudo-coccifora, which, to
quote from Sir Joseph's paper, "is by
far the most abundant tree throughout
Syria, covering tho rocky hills, of Palestine, especially, with a dense brushwood
of trees, eight to twelvo feet high,
branching from the base, thickly covered with small evergreen rigid leaves,
and bearing acorns copiously. On Mount
Cannot it forms nine-tenths of the
shrubbery vegetation, and it is almost
equally abundant on the west flanks of
the Antllebunon and many ot the slopes
and valleys of Lebanon. Owing to the
Indiscriminate destruction of the forests
in Syria, this oak rarely attains Its full
size. Tho circumference of the trunk of
"Abraham's Oak" is given as twenty-
three feotand tho diameter of the spread
of tho branches as ninety feet.
Quercus psoudo-coccifera is an evergreen species with the general appearance of the Ilex of Southern Europe,
and closely related, botanlcally, to Q.
ooccifera, a common nnd widely distributed scrub oak of Sou thorn Europo and
of Algeria; indeod, Hooker was ot the
opinion that the two plants wero merely
geographical varieties of the same
species.—Garden and Forest
RHYMING DIDN'T  PAY.
Tom Jackson Springs an Old Gag In a
Maine Town and Kills His Show.
Tom Jackson, the author of those tunny stories of "Squatter Sovereignty" and
the "Harlem Goat," was down In luck
at one ti me, and as a last resort took to
the minstrel business. He and a brother
of Judge Welde organized a company.
The company turned out to be a funny
one. Jackson and his partner (Welde)
were the end men, and while showing
at a little Maine town the former hit
upon the idea nf putting "poetry," as
he called it, into .ho performance.
He circulated a number of blank cards,
of the playing-card style, among the audience, and requested the holders to
write some subject on the pasteboard,
and he promised to compose a rhyme for
any one ot their selection. Tbe business was old to the. minstrel stage but
new to the audience, and so all wero a
hit timid about sending np subjects.
After a great deal of persuasion Jackson
succeeded in convincing two of the auditors that they would not be fleeced
alive if they followed his request, and
these two returned their cards. On ono
was written the single word "Dog."
The other bore this hint! "Pay for your
washing."
Jackson glanced at the cards for a
second and in coming down to the footlights said:
Pay for your washing.
That's funny.
I didn't think I owed your mother money.
Thon he oame to the other card, and
this is what he said:
Dog. That's bard,
I'm much obliged to tbe dog
For sending up hts card.
Two-thirds of the audience Insisted
that Jackson had insulted them and
they arose In a body and loft the show.
The news spread around tho little Maine
town and the next night the minstrel
show had empty benches to play to.
That settled tho card-rhyming business,
and since that eventful night witty Tom
Jackson has never aspired to the combined position of poet and ond man.—

The latest development of the advertising art eomes from Paris, where an

how far this would have an educational
effect upon the readers, oropt up behind
one who seomod more rapt than all the
others, and found-that he was reading

The business done in this line, however,

The promises mado by Mr. H. Abbott

Railway are evidently going to be car-

bridge the line between the outlet of
Kootenay Lake and the Columbia River.
Plana and specifications may be seen at
the engineer's office, Vancouver. Ab an
evidence that the C. P. R. are iu earnest
in this matter it will be noted that tenders muBt be in by noon on Monday,
April 14th. The early completion of
this very important road is now an assured fact.

In Mew Quarters,
i lie Bank of Montreal offices were removed to-day to the Bunhby Block, corner of Columbia and McKenzie streets.
The new offices are very handsomely
finished throughout, the counter especially being a very beautiful and substantial piece of work. The manager's room
has been neatly furnished, and affords
a means for transacting tne more important detai Is of banking matters which
the old office did not supply. The new
quarters, on the whole, are very appropriately arranged for the purposes intended, and the fact that the accommodation has been necessarily increased
tells of itself the ever growing popularity
of the institution and its management
in this city.
An Investigation Ordered.
The killing of young Percival by a
half-breed boy at Fort Douglas, on Harrison Lake, has caused the Provincial
Government to order a thorough investigation into the case. The conduct of
the investigation has been placed in the
hands of Mr. W. Moresby, governor of
the Provincial gaol, and he, together
with Capt. Pittendrigh, district coroner,
left to-day for Fort Douglas to sift the
affair to the bottom. A coroner's jury
will be sworn at Harrison River and
taken to Fort Douglas. The party left
well stocked with blankets aud provisions, aud they expect to have a rough
time aa they will have to camp out sev-
eral nights on the trip. The Govern
ment is to be commended for acting so
promptly iu this matter.

Vianen yesterday patrolled the river
from morning till night, but failed to

The report of the health committee on
the sanitary condition of tbo old Royal
Columbian Hospital was adopted by the
City Council last night. The report
recommends that the rear buildings be
destroyed by fire and that the other
buildings be thoroughly fumigated with
oulphur.
Arrangements have been made where*

call regularly at this port with freight
from Oregon and Sound j-orts, thereby
giving the merchants in Westminster
equal advantages with othor British
Columbia ports. Mathers & Milligau
have been appointed as the agents.
An alarm of fire from the Royal City
Mills startled the city this afternoon at

stacks set the roof on tire, hut the blaze
wis extinguished before It made headway by the application of a few buckets
of water.

The Mainland vs. Island football
match takes place at Victoria on Easter
Monday, April 7th, and is expected tu
prove one of the finest exhibitions of
the game ever given in the province.
The Mainland team wus chosen yesterday and is as follows: Full back, McLaren, (N.W.); Va backs, J. C. Whyte,
(N.W.), A B Williams, R P Woodward;
M backB, C H Woodward, J O Benwell;
forwards, R B Lister, M Mowat, W J
Corbett, (N.W.), R M Fripp, A Home,
R E Palmer. J W Dawaon, R G Harvey,
AG Malcolm; reserves, % backs, F
NichollB, (V.) 2nd, H McGregor, (N.W.)
hi backs, Greame; forwards, 1st. Fred
B Johnson; 2nd, Morrison (N.W.)
It will be noticed that Westminster
has five men on the team and three on
the reserve. The team leaves for Victoria on Sunday, via Vancouver. It will
be accompanied by a large number of
friends who will take advantage of the
holiday to go over and see the match,
The Pound By-Law.
The pound by-law to restrain cattle,
horses and other animals from roaming
the streetB at large, same into force to-
duy. Two pounds have been selected
by the City Council, one near the gas
works and the other on Queen's Park.
Neither of these, however, are considered satisfactory, and it is likely that another and more suitable site will be
chosen for a general pound, tlie opinion
being that another and more suitable
site will be chosen for a general pound.
the opinion being that the City can i
afford to pay the running expenses c
two such establishments.    The  fines
arising from impounded animals will, of
course, be an offset to the cost of maintenance, and if the poundkeeper is
energetic and xealouB In the performance of his duties the income of the
pound should be ample to pay all expound), sb It is very doubtful the general
public will realize that the by-law ia in
force until their animals have been "run
in" at least once. Estimating the number of cows within the City limits at
600, and stray horses 100, making u
total of 000 in alt liable to be impounded,
and placing the fine and costs in each
case ut |2.60, the City should derive a
revenue from this source of $1,600. This
neat little sum will pay the cost of maintaining the pound and leave a handsome
balance which might be devoted to recouping citizens whose property haa
Buffered during the last twelve moot lis
from the invasions of stray animals, or
it might 1)0 set aside for the purpose of
establishing a home for friendless animals.
NORTH ARM NOTES.
(From Our Own Correspondent.!
Nohtii AitM, April 1.—Tho weather
continues wet and cold, consequently
plowing and seeding progress slowly.
The efforts of our neighbors at Steve-
ston to form an Agricultural Society for
this municipality are 'being successful.
At a meeting held in the town hall on
Saturday a society wub organized with
the following officers: J. W. Sexsmith,
'resident; Mr. Mackle, Sen., Vico-pres-
idegt; Mr. Drummond, Secretary.* This
certainly ia a move In the right direction, North Arm farmers have hitherto taken little interest In agricultural
exhibitions. When tbey have their
ambition stirred by gutting up their own
fair, they will be sure to go further and
take their placo at the I'rovinclal exhibitions along side of Chilliwack und
other munlcipalitk's.
Sunday was bright und warm; good
congregations attended each service.
The pulpit of the Methodist church was
occupied hy Mr. Hicks, of Vancouver.
He gave an interesting and practical
discourse from the text ''Keep thy heart
with all diligence; for out of it are tho
issues of life."
The entertainment to be given in the
town hall on the evening of the 4th
promises to be of more than usual interest. The music, vocal and instrumental, will be a rare treat. All who
would enjoy a really good time should
latronize the social on Friday evening.
_'ea served from 7 to 8 o'clock. Tickets
50 cents; children half price. Proceeds
applied to parsonage premises.
Land is in good demand, and prices
are looking up. Parties are through
here almost daily making observations
and inquiries. Some lota have changed
hands at good figures.

Report adopted;
The Board of Health submitted the
following report from the board of medical gentlemen appointed to examine into
the sanitary condition of the old Royal
Columbian Hospital buildings:
1. The front of the building comprising the main entrance, hall, etc., and
two wings, is practically safe, and may
he utilized as residences. We would
urge and insist, however, that all this
portion of the building be plastered and
painted throughout, und that no papering be used ou the walls or ceiling
throughout.
2. We would urge that all the above
portion of the building lie disinfected
by burning sulphur, under the supervision of your health officer, and that
the sulphur be burned under the building after the basement has been closed
in.
.'!. The entire back portion of the
building, and also the out-houses, are
condemned and we would insist on their
complete destruction by fire.
4. The outbuilding where at present
the family named Campbell resides ia
excepted in the above. We consider it
practically safe.

Aid. Sinclair said the report was conflicting. He knew nothing of the report
and objected to Dr. McLean's share in
it us he was one of the first to protest
against the building being used.
Aid. Lyul said Aid. Sinclair had been
notified of the intended inspection but
had declined to attend,
Aid. Sinclair—Yes, I was too busy at
the time, hut 1 knew nothing of the
report.
Aid. Johnson thought it would be
difficult to burn one portion without
destroying the whole; also that it would
be better to burn the whole thing.
Aid. Smither said the health committee had done their duty in the matter,
and had reported the result of the in-
inveatigationa, therefore he would move
that the report be adopted.
Seconded by Aid. Shilea and carried.
The Sanitary By-law wob road in committee, passed a third time and ordered
to be signed, sealed and published.

FOUL MURDER.
Henry T.  Snnbury   Murdered   At   Vancouver On Sunday.
Citizens were shocked ou Sunday to
learn that the body of a man had been
found on tbe beach near and west of the
smelter, evidently murdered by some
person or persons unknown. It waa,
with the exception of a shirt, entirely
nude and covered with boards. The discovery wbb made by William Anderson,
who lives in a shack at the foot of Powell
street, about 8 o'clock, as he was going
to launch hia boat. The facts were at
once reported to the police, who had the
body removed and entered upon an investigation of the circumstances. The
deceased was a quiet, sober and inoffensive man, named Henry T. Sunbury,
who came here several months ago from
Bishop's Crossing, near Sherbrooke,
Quebec, whero his family now lives.
Recently he haa been working in the
Vancouver Saw Mill and boarded at the
Barnard Castle. Previous to going to the
latter place he boarded at the Oriental
and also at the Regina Hotel. Deceased
was 50 yeara old, abort and of medium
size, with full beard and hair turning
gray.
Death was evidently caused by the
uso of a heavy, dull instrument of some
kind, by which the skull on the left side
was crushed in. Sunbury left the Barnard Castle on Friday night and was
last Been near the smelter in  the com-
{mny of a man unknown. It is also said
le was seen along with an Indian, and
it is just possible that aome Siwash,
whose blood waB fired with whisky, did
the deed. His clothes were found hid
under a stump near the lime kiln. A
suspicion connects with tho tragedy tbe
name of a man who is Biippoaed to have
been implicated in a murder committed
in the Eastern townships some years
ago, and who, it ia alleged, waa identified by Sunbury.
Yesterday at 2 o'clock a jury wus en-
panelled by Dr. McGuigan, coroner, and
the body was viewed. An adjournment
was made without taking evidence until
2 o'clock to-day, when probably more
light will be thrown on the matter.
Last evening it was informally decided
by several members of the council after
adjournment to offer a reward of $200
for the apprehension and conviction of
the murderers.
Correspondence in the posaession of
deceased showed that ho was formerly a
man of good standing in the Eastern
townships. Ho had a daughter married
to W. H. Bloomfield, Dudswell, who has
been telegraphed to in reference to the
disposition of the remains. He had
another married daughter iu Troy, Vt.
Since his arrival here he was favorably
regarded by all who made his acquaintance. He was very quiet and was never
known to drink.—News-Advertiser.

A letter roceived from Kootenay this
morning by It. t. T. Oalbraith, Esq.,
gives the following account of an unfor-
tiinate conflict which took placo thore,
