Harftor ImprovemeHls.
While the representati*_9 of Victoria are pressing the Dominion government  for  an  appropriation of
1100,000 for their harbor, and are
being backed up by the Board of
Trade, what are the people of Westminster, going to dot   The importance of deepening the mouth bf
Fraser River is far greater than the
deepening of Victoria harbor, and
the work would probably not cost
half its much.    It ia only a short
distance from the city of Victoria
to the outer wharf, where vessels of
all sizes may call, but from Westminster to the salt water is 16 miles.
The trade of Fraser River has increased enormously within the past
few years, and it is likely to go on
increasing.    The deepening of the
river mouth would' be of immense
value to two of the most important
industries on the river, namely, the
canneries' ahd the saw mills.   The
canneries could then receive tlieir
supplies of tin from ocean vessels
without transhipment, and for return  cargoes  these vessels would
take the' product of our sawmills.
This, would open up to us at once
a new lumber market, and would
give an  impetus to the sawmills
from which every resident of the
district would derive a substantial
benefit. ' It .might be worth while
for the Westminster Board of Trade
to consider whether it is not advisable' to prepare a memorial to be
sent to Ottawa setting forth the
great   importance  of  having this
work carried to completion with all
possible speed.    We are sure our
representative at the capital will be
glad to do what he can to present
our elaims before the federal government
to grasp and retain political power
by means of tho Irish question. It
was determined, therefore, that tlie
Democratic governor and'the whole
electorate must be taught the lesson
that the Irish-American element is
to have its way in all things. These
people resolved to dofcat the Democratic tioket in Trenton, and they
did it; and now the government of
the city is in the hands of Republicans. A question of British politics
was the question which determined
who should be mayor of Trenton!
Beautify Tour Homes.
Every householder can add very
much' to the attractiveness of our
beautiful oity by the expenditure of
a small amount of labor on his house
and premises. A disorderly yard,
delapidated fences, and unsightly
walls are the evidences by which
one arrives- at the-conclusion that
the inmates are either miserably
poor or shockingly defioient in taste
and order. When one sees a neat
grass plot, a gravel walk, a' flower
bed, or even a neatly constructed
and carefully kept fence in front of
a tidy cottage, one instinctively
marks that place as the abode of
thrift I and; refinement. We must
uy there is gnat room in this city
for tit* kind of improvement we
have suggatedi Although many of
the city residences are handsomely
finished and handsomely kept, and
are surrounded by tasteful grounds,
many of them are not so and might
be greatly improved in appearance
by tbe expenditure of a few hours'
labor. Nothing impresses a stranger
more favorably than neatness and
taste about private residences. One
judges of the man (the ego) by the
appearance of the outward person.
So also do ae judge the inmates of
a house by their outward surroundings. It is remarkable how great a
transformation maybe wrought by
the judicious application of a few
dollan' : worth of paint, the construction of some simple artiole of
adornment, or the training of a vine
about the house. These things are
in themselves excellent, and they
aro tht visible expression of an invisible iaipu.se far more excellent
and far more worthy of admiration.
The cultivation of a love for the
beautiful not only brings forth fruits
such as these, but it beautifies and
refines the nature also, and lifts up
the soul to higher aims and purposes. - Let every citizen do something towards making his home, his
premises, and his city attractive.
Strange Politics.
In an election contest. which
lately took plaoe at Trenton, New
Jersey, some singular facts were
brought to light. The city of Trenton hat been a sort of Democratic
preserve, and tbe Democratic nominee for .the- mayoralty is said to
have been a most popular and worthy person. Before the election
took plaoe, however, a meeting was
held in the' state for the purpose of
protesting against the coercion niea-
sures iioy" Before the British parliament 'At this meeting the governor of. New Jersey (a Democrat)
m mksil In prnsiir. but he refused
on .-tfef ground that, however muoh
his personal sympathies might be
enlisttd on behalf of the people of
Ireland, he. could not in his official
capacity identify himself with any
such _ove_ieat. This refusal was,
every one must admit, entirely proper. ' I'or the people of tht state of
New Jersey to protest against coercion in Ireland would be, at best,
an aot of doubtful propriety, and
for the governor of a state, as suoh,
to gi-* dfflciaicountenance to sueh
a thiM would oome very near being
regarded u a hostile aet on the part
of tha ttata towards Great Britain.

but ho enbboil loud enough at last as he
edged olf of Broadway and around Into
the mu row lane of Doctor street.
A stock-brok' r's attention was attraoted then, and tho weeping old man was _o-
o..st-d. Ho had no story totoll, ho said,
nnd wantoU to go his way unquestioned,
but Wall street .urlosltyls not so readily
to be waved aside, and the broker ln the
end elicited the tale that he had demanded, '
It was a rather strange story, and It
wat aad enough to make that broker
open his purse.
The poor disconsolate old fellow was
a Southerner. He waa tn the prime of
life, a husband and a- father, when the
Kebollln broko out, and he, in devotion
to his State, marched Into the field for
the Confederacy.
Before the war was* over he lay ln a
Jirlson, and afterward wu In a hospital
or months at death's door.
The fortuueaiof wartad shut off oom-
munlc-tlon with home; the village whero
that librae, had been was In-nshes, the
site ot a battlefield. But as soon as lie
was freo he hurried to his native State
Booking tidings of wife and ohildren. lots,
The boy and the girl of his household
won dead; the wife—their mother—a
worse fata than death had' claimed her.
Sho was changed. Those who knew the
woman told of ber coquetry with a man
of money and position—a man who,
though not brave enough to wear the
blue, had come to the South In the Union
Army's van;   .    .
He waa a Kew Sorker, aat finally he
hnd borne thai lngrate wife away to the
North-la M-o-nrjjany, she avowing herself lilS!-Hfe, her first husband, she insisted, having fallen on the battlefield.
When the husband heard this story ho,
too, started North,..,Four years be
searched this city and this State over. ■
In one particular he disbelieved the
ta'e that he had heard South; he could
not accept as truo the assertion that his
wllu hnd willingly wronged bim; he be-
lievedtbat she had really thought him
ilea:; nor would he put his faith ln the
story that aught but a sacred marriage
ceremony had given her to this second
husband.
At the end of four years his quest was
rewarded. And he found that the South-
. era gossips had spoken truly. When he
ventured to seek her presence she spurned him.
This was fifteen yeara and mora ago—
years that brought no brightness to tha
old soldier; that hod a ohange of fortune tor the misled woman,
A year ago her rich husband died. She
was left penniless, cast adrift on the
world. Somehow the news got to the
ears of the husband working on a fer
Southern farm, reoognked by all as a
ments,! wreck, and be Bonded together a,
few dollars and hurried to the city
again.
He was still ln love with the erring
wife, anxious to take her back, full of
faith that 11 he and she eould again be
reunited that all would go well, that
Enwpority would attend him, and that a
apj-y home life was certain. He didn't
lln.i her. Sho was dead-
Only a few days ago he learned this,
Then his aim was to add a few mors dollars to his hoarded pittance, and have
her cofiln taken from this town's Potter's

she spent her innocent maidenhood,
where ahe waa happy ere the glitter of
gold came to tempt her.r But hUfJanalfc

The sto«k*broker who heard thb story
has no wife; some men have called him
heartless, But he acted Uke a mortal

"I have Juet returned front n trip to
Washington. I have lost nenrly nll niy
confidence In human natmv. I shnll
avoid that place as much as possiblo lu

In Washington," he continued, •< but ray
last trip beats anything I have ever
sees! I -Id not know that there were
so many tramps and dead beats in the
oountry.
" I had scarcely finished registering nt
Willard's when a man In the lat stages
ot Intoxication rolled up against me
and claimed my acquaintance. He was
so changed that I old not at first rocog-
nlze him. His face was bloated, his
eyes bloodshot, his clothing dirty and
everything about him stamped him as a
drunken sot.
" I- recognized htm as a man I had
met a few years ago—a young man of
promise then, bnt with too great a fondness for Washington whisky nnd gambling. I gave him a dollar and hurried
away upstairs to my room,
" I had been there half an hour when
thero was a knock at my door, and In
response to my summons a decently-
dressed man walked ln. I did not know
him from Adam. He apologized for
.disturbing me at that hour—It was after
eleven o'clook—and sold that he had
met me with Colonel So-and-so the last
time I was In town. He saw my name
in the register down stairs and thought
be would call to pay his respects. -
"Curious to learn why hewanted to
pay his respects to a comparative
stranger, I did not follow my tint
Impulse and kick bim out of tbe
room.
"After making a few perfunctory Inquiries about aSWrs In Kew York, ho
camo to the main point. As I might
have known.lt was my money ho wanted.
I forget Just how he worded his reqnost,
but his embarrassment, whioh I believo
he said was temporary, was caused by
tho failure of the malls to bring an expected remittance. Twenty-live dollars
would help him out. His manner
was perfectly oool, and one might have
Imagined that I had asked him to do
me a favor.
"I told him, however, that I was
short ot funds, ond I kept all my money
ln New York. He waved his hand and
said: v
" 'Oh, it's of no consequence,'
"On my arrival here.a tew days ago
I found a draft on me from this man for
$28. He said ina note that he owed a
bill for furniture, and he should take lt
as a favor if I would take up the draft
and allow htm to pay tor lt by some service he might be able to render me ln
the future.
. " I met hundreds like him. They
dress pretty well, and the majority of
thom havo seen better days.

Tai Council CoXRiKT Attention
is called to the excellent programme of
the coming concert, which will be
found in onr advertising columns today. It will be seen tbat the number
of soloists who hare made a reputation is large. Mrs. Middlebrook,
whose name may not be familiar to
many of bur readers, is a resident of
Vanoouver, and persons who have
heard her ting express the opinion that
she hu the best female voice in British Oolumbia. She makes her first
appearance in this city on Friday
night.
_
Wr NiaBT's Mreti.su. —The Skating Rink waa well filled lut night, a
large number of new facu being observable. Mn. Hampson-Hemus took
for her subject the SOth verae of the
3rd chapter of Rorelationa: " Behold,
I stand at the door and knock: if any
mm hear my roico.nnd open the door,
I will come in to him, and will sup
with him, and he with mo." The address wu the most powerful and convincing of any delivered during the
mission, and its effect upon the largo
audience oould be plainly discerned.
To-night and to*morrow night Mrs.
Hampson-Hemus will speak in the
Rink, her address beginning to-morrow at 7 o'clock.
Puzzle It .Out if You Cau.—" I
have been very much bothered lately,"
said a hone dealer to a St Louis Globe
reporter, "with a question arising out
of a deal which his been to me a
aoui-t of greater annoyance than the
1. puzzle. I add a hone to B for
980. In a few days he came back
with the hone, and 1 repurchased the
animal for 170. I then immediately
nsold him for {66. The quution is,
How much did I gain or low on the
transaction? When I bought the
hone bank for 1.01 certainly made
fiO, and wben I sold again for $05 I
auuredly loet fS. Now if I gain 810
and lose (5, my net gain is, it seems
to me, J5. But, on the other hand,
after my Bnt sale I had no hone and
$80, while after my second sale I had
no hone and only 875, consequently I
must have lost 85. At one time when
I think over the matter I congratulate
myself on having pocketed a "V"
through sharp dealing, while at another I feel like going around behind
the bam and kicking myself forhaving
been inch a blank fool.''
It Wiii, Not "Do.—Our ootemporary on Ohuroh st. editorially drops
the matter of telegrams, and writes
himself a letter in whioh the charge ia
repeated that the Columbian telegrams are atolen. This subterfuge
will not do. If the telegrams are not
paid for, it is manifestly impossible
tor us to prove they are to the satisfaction of a committee of three appointed by our cotemporary himself.
In that cue the hospital will get 8100,
and our ootemporary would gain a
magnificent viotory over fraud and
humbug. If our cotemporary and his
correspondent aro su sure about the
telegrams, let them try 850 each as a
backing for. then'.opinions, and see
what comes of its., The proposal we
have made, everyone must admit, ia
(fen that our cotemporary and hia correspondent are cowards wh«„iej!K'Vy
