Three Years Suspension tor
Drunkenness and Cruelty.
Dominion    Parliament    Prorogues
Yesterday—No Settlement of
Behring's Sea Difficulty.
Quite a Sensation.
New Yqbk, May 17.—Miss Nellie Lit*
tell attracted a great deal of attention
to-day by taking a ten mile horseback
ride in Central Park, riding astride just
like a man. Miss Littell comes of un
old Virginia family. She wears knickerbockers und high top boots. In regard
to the side-saddle, Miss Littell says: "It
is cruelty to both horse and woman. It
Injures and tires the animal, and is liable to give spinal curvature and other
troubles to women. It leads to onesided development nnd is cortainly ungraceful and unsafe."
Stolen liy Gipsies.
Nbw Yokk, May 17.—A band of strolling gipsies recently kidnapped Joseph
Mitchell, the ,five-year old son of Henry
Mitchell, of Bloomfield. N. J. John
Andrews, a peddlar, discovered the
child's whereaoouts, and the father in
company with his neighbors and two
bloodhounds went in pursuit of the gipsies. Mitchell recovered his child and
the gipBies were driven out of tlie valley
at the point of guns.
Suspended for Three Yearn.
New Yobk; May 17.—"Commander B.
II. McCalla detached and ordered
home," was entered to-day in the log of
the U.'S. S. Enterprise which hus been
lying for weeks at Brooklyn navy yard,
This entry ib all the record which the
ship's books will have of Capt. McCnlk's
suspension from rank and duty for three
years, Capt, McCalla received his official notification this morning from Hear
Admiral Brume, that he had beon convicted. The admiral ulso returned the
capfcuin'B sword, but lie can't wear it for
three years. Tliis morning he will probably leave for New Port where he has
a summer home.! Under the sentence
inflicted ou him Commander McCalla
can't wear his uniform and can't leave
the country for three years. He also is
not allowed to visit the navy department
while serving sentence. The general
opinion in the navy yard yesterday was
that McCalla had escaped with a light
sentence. Tlte only thing that is really
hard for Capt, McCulIu, said one of the
officers, is tlie fact thut he must return
his present number in the list of commanders. There is only one of his old
classmates ut Annapolis now ahead of
him, but if it is three years before he
returns to duty he will probably see all
the members of his class ranking ahead
of him.
Leaped  tu I>entriu)tlon.
Nkw Yokk., Muy 16—Mrs. Mary Bange-
wade a young married woman aged 20,
living ou the 3rd floor of 110 West 28th
street und who has been confined to bed
by illness for some time past was awakened this morning by the bed clothes
catching Are through some unexplained
cause. She became so excited that she
rushed to tho window and jumped out
being instantly killed.
A Common Thing There.
Sax Antonio, Tcxub, Muy 10.—Word
has just been received here from Eagle
Pass, which is on the border line of
Mexico and the United States, that a
revolution of considerable proportions is
very imminent in the state of Coahuila.
Deadly Gas.
Piiela, pu., May 10.—Seven young
women narrowly escaped asphyxiation
by illuminating gas lust evening. It
was found that the gas hud been escaping from the pipe and the girls were unconscious. Medical aid, after several
hours' work, restored them.
this lofty obstruction gives one some
idea of the height to which the smoke
and ashes rose. Professor Davidson, of
the coast survey, estimates that the
volcanic pillar must have been sent
up at least four miles above the
sea. Captain Everett. Smith, of
the steam whaler Orca, passed
near the scene soon after the
first explosion. He noted that four
new islets, each detached, but near the
volcano island, had arisen from the
depths. As the ocean bottom here
right off Bogoslov sounds 844 fathoms,
and there is a depth of 1,200 fathoms
about 12 miles away, an idea may be
gained of the tremendous energy required to raise an islet from the ocean bottom to nnd above the surface.

Boston, Mobs., May 16.—About two
years ago Helen Keller was placed iu the
South Boston blind asylum. She wus
blind, deaf aud dumb. The child showed u remarkable doBire to learn und in
the first year gained a vocabulary of
18,000 sign words. Two years before

A Bail, Romantic Tale.
New York, May 1(1.—A sensational
story has been published here to .the
effect that Sir. Roger Tiehborne iB alive
and iu Australia. The story narrates
that a letter has beon received by a prominent counsellor in London, in which
a harrowing tale is unfolded. Sir Roger,
according to this story, was held prisoner in the bush for years by a baud of
Australian convicts, who tried to foist
Arthur Orton on Lady Tiehborne ub her
son. The conspirators died one by one,
the last one a few months ago. This
man left a will iu which the whole
deinoniacul plot wus fully confessed and
luid hare.
Harvest of Death.
Wilkesiiarrk, Pu., May 10.—It is now
stated that all the entombed miners are
dead. At seven o'clock this morning,
rescuing party discovered one of the
Hungarian brothers named Hubs, in an
abandoned working. He was alive and
said ho thought tho other men were ull
safe in one of the breasts. This gnve
rise to the rumor thnt all the men were
safe. Russ died on being brought to the
surface. AU the men with the exception of thoso rescued last evening, it is
now said, were killed by the explosion
which occurred two hours after the cave-
in took place. The bodies of the victims
are rapidly being taken out;, they are
horribly mangled; in some instances tho
heads being entirely blown off. Allen,
the fire boss, who was rescued from the
mine alive lust night, died to-day.
They Deserve   Punishment.
Nbw York, May 10. — To-day the
grand jury brought into the court of
general sessions indictments against Excise Commissioner Jus. Fitzpatriek,
Joseph Koch and Alexander Moakhi,
The indictments charge misdemeanor;
the specific charge is neglect in failing
to Investigate within a reasonable time,
certain cases of violation of the election
law, which wero brought to their attention by the city reform club. The
club alleged that liquor was Bold ut polling places on election day, in defiance
of the law. A report was made to the
excise board and they failed to investigate the matter. Koch and Fltzputrick
were notified to appear in court this
afternoon and plead. Meakin Is in

San Francisco, May 10.—Bogoslov,
tho Alaskan volcano, is again in eruption. Tho news whs .received in this
city bv a private letter from FortBlin-
link, Oonalnsku lslnnd, yesterdav. Just
12 miles back of the settlement' and between it and Bogoslov, rises the volcano

Mexico, May 10.—Governor Jose
Garcia and President Diaz have had very
unpleasant feelings towards each other
for somo time and it is reported on very
good authority that the Governor has
matters all nrruuged for a big revolution in his stute (Coahuila). One thousand cavalrymen, who have beeu encamped near Kngle Pass, huve beeu
ordered to march to (Juarez, in order to
lie near at hand in case of an outbreak.
....Onr New Connection.
St. Paul, May 15.—Lyman Dwight,
manager of the Great Northwest Telegraph Company in this country,' who
hus just returned to Winnipeg from the
Pacific Const, will recommend his company to build a line from Blaine, Wash.,
to New Westminster, B. C, and Vancouver, aud thence by cable to Nanaimo
and Victoria. This will give the Western
Union and Great Northwest facilities to
compete for business on the British
coast with the Canadian Pacific Railway
system. The Western Union will extend its system to Blaine. Dwight's recommendation will be adopted.
The Charivari Case.
Port Townsend, May 14.—The celebrated Martin-Phillips charivari case
from Lopez Island, now on trial in the
superior court here, is attracting much
attention. The trial began Tuesday,
and will not be completed before Friday. About half of the witnesses for
the state have testified, and a strong
case is being made out for the prosecu-
ction. The testimony shows that when
Phillips returned to hiB home on Lopez
Island ou the night of December 10,
with his bride, a party of eight young
men went to give them a charivari. The
party fired a gun when within a short
distance uf the house, when Phillips
came out on the porch with a shotgun
in his hand and ordered them away.
As they ran he shot into the crowd,
wounding two of the boys, John Graham and John Hall. Hull died five
days afterwards. Phillips was indicted
for the murder of Hall and for assault
with intent to kill Graham, the latter
being Phillips' nephew. ThiB is the
first case of the kind ever brought to
trial in the Northwest, aud every point
is being Htubbqrnly contested.
The Newfoundland Fisheries.
Paris, Moy lfl.—In the senate to-day
M, Boxerum opened the debate on the
Newfoundland fisheries question by interpellating the Government as to the
present situation in regard hereto. The
rights of the French fishermen, he said,
were really undisputed. The question
was simply that of the scope of their
rights. Tlie French were permitted to
take fish, but not lobsters, under the
ridiculous pretext that lobsters were
not fish. M. Kibot said that there was
not ambiguity in the text of the treaties.
"France" he declared, ''has neither u
treaty nor a negotiation with Newfoundland, nor is it with her alone that
we have to deal. Wo have rceived a
formal assurance from the British Government thut our rights will be respected
nnd our treaties fulfilled. We can add
nothing except that the Government is
quite decided that nothing shall be impaired of the rights which France has i
held for 20 years. The order of to-day I
was passed approving the declaration of
the Government.
PARLIAMENT PROROGUES.
With   the   Usual   Ceremony.    The   He-
hrlmc'H S*ea Matter Still Unsettled.
Ottaka, May lfl.—Parliament was
prorogued to-day with the usual brilliant
ceremonies-and amid the booming of a
vice-regal salute from the battery ou
Nepean Point. There was a great nwh,
nitiBic, flowers, pretty women, and .general enthusiasm. Before 5 o'clock the
city looked half deserted. His Excellency was attended by his military
staff.
The proceedings iu the House were
uninteresting, though Mr. Cavin supplied some amusement.
Mr. Mitchell asked for information
respecting the Behring Sea und the Atlantic fishery questions.
Sir John Macdonald in reply said thnt
ho had expected to be able to give a definite statement, but the despatch received was indefinite, and he had not received au explanatory despatch. Mr.
C. H. Tupper was on his way to Ottawa,
but was travelling slowly on account of
his recent dangerous illness. The negotiations, however, were proceeding satisfactorily.
Mr. Trow asked if the Government
proposed to pay the half-breed, Bremner, at once In order to avoid litigation.
Sir John Macdonald held out no promise, the matter would lie considered
immediately. The question of the liability of the Crown or a minister in any
case for the acts of Ids subordinate is divided by a verv narrow line. He had
not looked at the evidence iu this case,
and was not really able to say whether
the Crown could be held liable. If the
responsibility rested with the Crown,
tho Government would pay Bremner.
Messrs. Laurier, Mitchell und Mills
urged the Premier to grunt tho indemnity nt once.
'The war is over," said Sir John, and
with this the Speaker left the chair.
The speech from the throne is a verv
format affair. Among other things His
Excellency says that the negotiations
respecting the Behring Sea question aro
still in progress at Washington, with a
food prospect of an equitable settlement.
lean white the continuance of another
year of what is known as the modus
virendi serves to show our honest desire
to cultivate the most friendly' relations
with the United States Government nnd
people.     ^^^^^^^^^^
The Obnoxious Bill.
The Golden correspondent uf tlie
Kootenay Star says that Law, the candidate for the legislature. haB gone west
to Beaver. The feeling there is that he
will be elected by a large majority, as
Col. Baker threw away his most available election card by supporting the
Railway Aid Bill, Irrespective of the
feelings of his mining constituency, on
a question so vital to their Interests. It
Ib needless to add in comment that the
bill is showing its bad odor ulready; the
local investor does not feel safe In his
intended ventures, and the foreign capitalist turns hta back in disgust and is
looking to other climes more roBeate
with promise, where the laws guarantee
him 100 cents on every dollar of earnings accruing from his investments, and
whore ho is not compelled to give live
per cent ou thu same, us if under "the
sway of Moruiouism."
The Fat Sultan.
U.-.ti.iN, May 17.—Prince Bismarck's
private physician, Dr. Schweltnger, is at
present engaged in instructing Fohry
Bey and Behrin Bey, the sultan'., personal medical advisers, how to relieve
thnt monarch o' the obesity from which
he suffers. The Turkish physicians will
practice on u similar cuse for six months
in this city before undertaking the cure
of their royal master.    .
THE SEMILKAHEEN COUNTRY.
Cattle Losses During the I'ast Winter.—
Mini ii? at Hock Creek.—The Okanagon
Hallway.—Fine Crop Prospects.
An old West in iusterite, Mr. S. Oswold
Coulthard, who is now n rancher in the
Semilkameen country, arrived in the
city n few days ago, and will spend a
few weeks renewing old aequainteuces.
Ur. Coulthard brings quite an interesting budget of news from our famous cattle country, und the only authentic report that lias reached the coast from
his section of the country since the
spring opened.
The paBt winter was the most severe
on record, there being iu reality two
distinct winters. The cold weather set
iu as usual in December, und continued
without a break until the middle of February, when mild weather came, and it
was generally supposed that the winter
was ended. In the Semilkameen country tho most severe weather has passed
usually by the middle of February, and
when the sohVweuther set iu the ranchers were elated to think that they were
going to winter their stock without loss.
Up to this time the cattle had done well,
aud losses were next to nothing. However the mild spell only lusted a few
days, and then very cold weather ensued winch lasted till the beginning of
April. Then it was the heavy losses occurred, and Mr.  Coulthard says, "the
cattle seemed to melt away before the
 .lie
 left to forage
at their own will perished by thousands.

Mesmerism a Crime.
Brussels, May 17.—Iu accordance with
tlie resolution passed by the Brussels
academy of nicdiciue, the Belgian Government hus forbidden all public seances
of hypnotism, and declared all hypnotism, except used legitimately for
healing purposes, to be illegal. The
hypnotising of girls under 18 is made
punishable by fine and imprisonment.
Flood   and  Fire.
London, May 17.—The City of Tomsk,
which iB reported to have been almost
destroyed by floods and tires, is the capital of the Government of that name iu
West Siberia, and is situated on the
Tomsk River. It is built mostly of
wood but, has substantial public biiild-
gs.   Its population is 25,000.
The Submarine Boat.
Paris, May 17.—Recent experiments
with the new submarine gun boat
"Gymnote" have proved entirely satisfactory. Several changes have been
made since the trial a short time ago,
nnd it can now be confidently stated
that the problem of sailing underwater
has been solved. After the first experiment it wfts found necessary to modify
the accumulation cases, aud. after
patient research the fragile non-conducting substances being set aside, cases
were at length produced which have
given entire satisfaction.

An Angry Comment.
Brussels, Muy 10.—Tlie Independence j
Beige comments iu an ungry tone upon
the attitude of the United States Minis-1
On the Canadian side the snow was not so
deep as to tho south, and only about 25
per cent of the stock succumbed to the
cold and starvation, but on the United
States aide, where the snow was much
deeper, fully 75 per cent, and in some
cases more, perished. Many of the
Idaho ranchers are completely ruined.
Af ter the beginning of April the spring
opened in earnest, and when Mr. Coulthard left Keremeos the grass was good,
and the cattle were picking up fast.
Crops were all in by the 5th inst., and
prospects are good for a bountiful harvest.
Three miles of the Shuawapand Okanagon Railway are graded. Only Chinese
ure employed on construction.
The steamer plying on Okanagan
Luke is doing a splendid business. It
proves n great convenience to the
settlors.
Cuttle driving over the Cascades to
Hopo will commence about the usual
time, und the qualitiy of beeves sent out
will be as good as in the past.
The prospects for a plentiful hay harvest are good. Unusually high water
is expected, which will overflow the
bottoms and ensure a big crop of grass.
There is still lots of snow on Hope
mountain, and no attempt has been
made ub yet to cross. The canyons are
still filled with snow.
A big boom is expected this summer
iu the Rock Creek Mines. Mr. Douglas,
who is backed by the Standard Oil Co.,
ter, Terrell, in opposition to tlie action
of the Anti-Slavery Conference in lin- j
lopment of his own claim, which is showing very rich prospects, Mr, Douglas
hus promised to test the quartz from
nil mines on Rock Creek, which wilt be
n great boon to mine owners, who at

The Clengary Estate.
London, Muy lfl.--The offer made by
tlie agent of the Ctengary estate to set •
tie witli the tenants on the basis of payment of one instead of three years' rent,
as previously enacted, has been accepted conditionally by tlie latter. The conditions laid down by the tenants are
that the estate shall reinstate all of the
tenants who have been evicted nnd place
them on the same footing in the future
as those remaining, and that the houses
destroyed Bhall be rebuilt and put into
the possession of the evicted without
nny expense to them. It is thought
probnble thnt the conditions will be
accepted in order to avoid further trouble. 	
Ever Popular Gladstone.
London, May 10.—Mr. Gladstone's
route from Ipswich to * Norwich to-day
was liberally lined with admirers. At
every station he wub greeted by crowds
of people, who had assembled hours beforo the arrival of his train and patiently
awaited his coming. At a few stations
lie was compelled to speak in response to.
repeated calls, but his remarks were brief
and unimportant, from a political point
of view. As the train rolled into Norwich a tremendous cheer went up from
the great crowd surrounding tho station
and the ex-Premier's appearance on the
platform was the signal for another and
a greater outburst of applause. As Mr.
Gladstone and the committee delegated
to receive bin. entered carriages and
wero driven slowly away, tlio vast crowd
formed iu Hue and followed cheering as
they marched. No greater demonstration of popular admiration for a British
subject than that which characterized
Mr. Gladstone's triumphal cntery into
Norwich has ever been witnessed.
Imperial Parliament,
London, May IO.—In the House of
Commons this evening Sir James Ferguson, the Under-Foreign Secretary,
said that the Government was unable to
confirm the story published in the Post
to the effect thut nn agreement hud
been entered iuto between Cardinal Ln-
vigerieund the German Hast African
Company, with a view of monopolising
the Uganda by tlie Cardinal's missionaries to tho exclusion of British missionaries, and otherwise prejudicing British
interests in that section.
Sir James also stated that the Government hud not heard thnt. the New
foundland legislature had passed an ud-
dress to ttte Home Government, protesting against .tlie hitter's action in regard to the .fisheries question. The
Government wns witling, however, to
lay the address unon the table of the
House if it should ho received.
Iu tho House of Lords this evening
Lord Salisbury declared that the roport
that Germany in 1888 requested England to join her in an offensive nud defensive nlllatico wub utterly untrue.
Equally baseless nlso, lie suid, was the
report that there way any estrangement
between Germany and England. When
tlie present Emperor ascended tho
throne, tlie relations of the two countries
were then as they ure now, of tlie most
friendly character.

Children Cry for Pitcher's. Castorla.
Rich Discoveries.
At Rudge's marble works on Douglas
street, two tine specimens—tho one of
excellent sandstone, tlie othor of pure
white marble—aro nt present attracting
tlie admiration of nil interested in mineralogy. The sandstone, which is of remarkably good color nnd grain, was tp
cently discovered to exist in immense
quantity on Addington Island, near
Alert Bay. Tlie samples brought down
nre of a fine, gradatious stone, which
cuts, saws or bores well, and which will
stand fire better than any known fire
brick.   This last mentioned quality ren-
dors it specially adapted for furnace
ling, while it cau also be used to
splendid advantagi
building:	
by builders and iu
monumental work.
Addington Island, where the quarries
are located, contains about one hundred
acreB of the sandstone. Messrs. Hew-
son end Budge are the owners of tlie
valuable find, uud their intention is to
develop it at once. They claim that the
quality of the stone is much superior to
tbe Nanaimo article, while it can be
profitably marketed at a lower price.
A'ddington Island, alone of the group of
which it forms one, contains the sandstone which is already being used by
Victoria cutters. Of the marble grea't
tilings are expected. It Is pronounced
of harder, closer grain than the Vermont production, and is said to he comparable only with Italian. It cuts well
and takes an unsurpassed |»lish,
while its solidity ensures its durability.
Of the full extent of tlie supply which'is
contninod iu the mountain at Knight's
Inlet, little is known. Tlie deposit appears inexhaustible—at any rate, there
is enough lo last ttie whole Pacific coast
for centuries. Rutland marble now
monopolizes the trade of America, but
the owners of the Knight's Inlet mine
expect lo compete successfully witli the
Vermouters, having a better article,
which they will be able to sell just as
cheaply. It is anticipated that the new
marble will take the place of all imported material here at once, and that the
trade that wilt .bo opened up by Its exportation to the United States will constitute another important and profitable industry for British Columbia—Colonist.

UNWORTHY TACTICS.
Wk indirectly expressed tlie hope,
yesterday, thut, as Hon. Mr. Robson
had sensiby refused the private overture made to him tlie other day to Btand
for this City on condition of being returned by acclamation, lie would not do
himself the injustice und injury of attempting to make uny political capital
out of what be musfhavc known was nn
utterly unimportant incident. We regret, however, to note, by a report hi
the Colonist of apolitical meeting held
in Victoria on Thursday night laat, that
tlie Premier tins dono the vory thing we
had hoped his better judgment and
common sense would have prevented
him doing. Mr. Robson Hinted in the
course of a speech on the evening in
question, in a perfectly manncr-of-fiict
manner, that "ho had been offered the
" representation of Westminster City
" by acclamation." We need not
state for the information of our
local readers, at least, that nine-tenths
of the fourteen hundred electors
of this City, without having any
feelings of resentment, ill-will, or
even opposition (on general principles)
towards Mr. Robson, do not, under all
ths circumstances, wish him to represent this constituency in the next Parliament. Mr. Robson would do himself
more justice if he would recognize this
fact and acknowledge the reasonableness of its existence, and govern himself accordingly, instead of placing both
himself and the constituency in a false
light before tho people of the Province.
We shall in a future issue endeavor to
show the reasonableness of tlie position
which the electors of the Lower Mainland, at least, occupy upon this question. "
CORNERED AND DESPATCHED.
Alar, poor Truth1. Our "wretched'
cotemporary is a fitter object for compassion than for criticism; but we must,
in the interests of truth, drag it out
from its obscure cave, whero its torch
has sputtered into n noisome darkness,
and publiciy divest it of its last "refuge
"of—/'well, not truth. The only
point which our cotem. attempts to
mnke in its pitiful pleadings this morning as an excuse for its change of base-
wbich it now admits—is to the efl'ect
that the Government had changed in'its
attitude toward tho redistribution question since the bill bad been brought
down. We will give our cotemporary
the full advantage of its own plea iu ita
own words:
Slowty, by reason of the articles that
were written, the representations that
went forward, and tho discussions thnt
took place in the House, the Government retreated from the position it had
assumed, till (when the deputation
waited upon it) it renounced, as we contend, the balance of power theory altogether. That was the point we were
arriving at. that, was tlie point wc hud
[ained, and we then, and have frequent-
ty
since, expressed our contentment to
.,..( «i.__ i.-.-.!...-. ._■__.,. i	
await the taking of the census next year
and allow tho lull to stand as it is tilt
then.
We are glad that our cotemporary hns
been driven to make a clearly defined
stand iu its " last ditch," so to speak,
jM-caiiso now we cun put it out of its
misery with nentnessnnd despatch. The
- point of points, then, is this: The sole
justification for its somersault, which
tlie Trttth now admits, is that the Government had executed a gradual, graceful, crescendo-diminuendo — one—two-
three—go 1—head-over-hcels movement,
just prior to our cotemporary's sympathetic flop. But,poor Truth, the Government never risked its precious neck
by doing anything of the sort. It hardly
made the faintest sort of a feint in, that
direction; but, the wish being father of
the thought, so worked upon your ardent imagination ns to conjure upanoptical delusion; nnd, on the strength to
that, O, unhappy Truth, yon took false
courage, nnd attempted the rush feat—
and broke your neck. And the Government, whom you so sincerely, but mistakenly, attempted to imitate, we venture to say, will hardly think it worth
while to attend your funeral, or to strew
ilowers on your grave, because you are
misrepresenting ami coin promising them
in your dying confessions. What, think
you, will the "Hon. Thco." a very important spoke in the Government wheel,
think of your misconstruction of tlie
Government's attitude on the redistribution question? Rend that gentleman's
speech in yesterday's Colonist,and learn.
For that matter, read tho Hon. Premier's speech, delivered on the same
occasion, and, if you are capable, draw
deductions. Such " stuff," O Truth, as
you are talking, will do well enough to
spout on the Mainland, if you enn get
nnybody to swallow it, but if your domicile were situated on-the Island, you
would be choked off with a suddenness
thnt would make your head Bwim. If
you don't believe ub, ask the Colonist.
Although it is hardly necessary, we
will lcok into our cotemporary's "point"
of this morning again, and show that the
alleged "point" is iu reality u Hunting
speck, resting upon nothing. "The
"Government," says our cotem., "re-
" treated from the position it had ns-
(" mimed, until (when the deputation
"waited upon it [our italics]) it re*
" nouueed, ns we contend, the balance
"ofpower theory altogether." Truth
is very good to define its "last Btand" so
particularly iu all details, and to inform its renders justwheu the "Govern-
" ment renounced the balance of power
" theory altogether." Tho dispute Is
thus narrowed down to a definite point
where there Is no difficulty in finally
disposing of it. In fact it has' been already disposed of. In its issue of
Thursday, Truth tried to establish this
very aamo point—namely, that, in
the Interview    between  the Govern*
ment and the Mainland Delegation,
the Government had "renounced the
"balanceof power theory altogether"
—and on the same day we clearly
showed, on our cotemporary's own evidence, that it had utterly failed to do so.
We will bring forward the evidence
again which Truth submitted, and on
which it evidently rests its case. The
evidence, as will be seen, is in the form
of a sort of suggested question by a member of the delegation, and a rejoinder
by Hon. Mr. Robson, as-Premier, and
on behalf of himself and his Government
as a whole:
A member—But this balance of power
seems to keep hold, and they may say:
"No we have the balance of power, and
we are going to keep it for four years."
Hon. Mr. Robson—All we claim now
is that there are no conditions known
to exist to justify disturbing the balance
of power, but to wait until the census is
taken.
We would say now, as wo said before,
and nearly in the same words: And it is
this distinctly evasive and negativo
answer of the Premier which our deluded cotemporary parades as "quite explicit," nnd upon which it bases its
" last stand" of this morning, that "the
" Government had renounced the bal-
" ancc of power theory altogether."
Having disposed of tho small game
above, at considerable waste of powder,
wo will admit, we shull continue on our
" octopus" hunt, trusting that we may
not be bothered again even by the
"ghost" of our misguided and luckless
Church street cotem.
The Deadwood Mine.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. W. C. Hey-
wood received a fine sample of gold from
the Deadwood mine near Cnyuse Creek,
Lillooet, together with a most favorable
report from the manager, Mr. Whither.
The gold is remarkably clean, and several good sized nuggets nre Intermingled
with it. Mr. Heywood says that last
December the property of the mine was
purchased by a company in which he is
a large shareholder, and preparations
made for hydraulic mining on an extensive scale. Nearly $7,000 were espeuded
iu the work of putting up flumes, pipes,
etc., and a fair start at actual work was
made about one month ago. The samples sent down are part of the first clean
up, when over f 1,600 worth of gold was
obtained. The most of this was sent te
San Francisco direct, as better prices
can bo got there for the metal than here.
As soon ns advices are received from
San Francisco, a dividend of 5*per cent,
will be declared on the stock. The company own 89 acres,of land about three
miles from Lillooet, which is covered
with rich, gold bearing ground tondepth
of 15 to 20 feet. Prospects taken in all
parts of tho claim show that the dirt is
equally rich from one to six cents per
pan being obtained. As soon as more
perfect improvements are made in the
apparatus for dealing with tho gravel,
much bettei results ore expected, ns it
has been found that the tailings of the
first clean up are nearly as rich as the
first dirt. The supply of water at the
Deadwood is unlimited, it being brought
about two miles from Caynse Creek and
run into a tank in the middle of the
claim, and from there distributed to the
several pipes. The result of the first
clenn up is far beyond tho expectations
of the promoters of the enterprise, and
they naturally feel pleased with the
result.—Thursday's Times.

TO THE ELEOTORS OP
New Westminster City.
I frankly confess that, aside from tho great
question ot tho Just distribution of legislative
power, 1 would scarcely care to bo a candidate
If you do mo the honor to elect ino 1 shall mnku
that question my first consideration nt nil times,
nud in order to do this itis essential thnt I
keep quite freo from any entangling alliances
witli either Government or Opposition. Hut to
tin.' people and the advocacy ot the rights of tho
people,In this mBtter and in all others. I ean
fully and freely plodgo myself; and with those,
bo tncy on what side of the House thoy mny,
who arc animated by a similar spirit, I wlll work
cordially.
Tlie present crisis demands special treatment.
We of tlio Lower Mainland uro denied our Just
share of legislative power, and so long ns that Is
the caso our truo imlloy, in my opinion—nny,
thf policy which our own self-respect compels us
to adopt—In In return no man lo tins Legislature
who will not make tho righting of thnt wrong
Ins Ilrst business. It may safely lie assumed
that thoso who shall bo found willing to do
right lu tills mutter, will be the most likely tn do
right in others also.
Notwithstanding the utmost devotion to Ibis
Ilrstl question, your representative will have to
deal with ninny other matters, and perhaps ll
will he sulilciont now to nny on this point Hint 1
believe there Is room for a good dcnl of work before the administration of public affairs can

GAMBETTA'S  GRAVE.
Tbo Floral Decorations on the Anniversary of HU Duath.
To-day I visited the grave ol Gam-
betta in tbe picturesque Cemetery of tbe
Chateau, lying among tbo bills of Nice,
and I found that tbere bad been many
groups of visitors of both sexes to it in
tbe course of the day. It was as genial
a day as any in whioh the sun ever
shone on tbo coast of the Mediterranean
and the cemetery was a scene of beauty.
Tbere were hosts of pilgrims here last
week from many parts of Franco, on the
anniversary of Gambetta's death, tho
last day of the year, and the honors tbat
have been paid daily sinco then to the.
memory of tbe "great tribune" Bhow
how deep is tho hold that he retains
upon tbe heart of France.
To-day tho grave was thickly covored
with floral crowns and wreaths of
exquisite, beauty and fragrance. They
lay all around it as woll as on top of lb
Thoy woro of red and whito roses, and
of immortelles, and of many other kinds
of flowors, and I noticed many humble
floral tributes among tlioso of a grandiose style. Here aro tho lovely crowns
und othor wreaths brought from Paris
by tho Undor Secretary of Stato for the
Colonies; horo Is a festoon from Alsace;
bore is another brought hy tho Deputies from tho Maritime Alps; horo is
another draped in crape und bound with
tri-colorod ribbons brought hy somo ad-
mirora in Nice; here is n suporb crown
bearing this -inscription: "To tho Grand
Tribuno from an Unknown Admirer;"
horo is another marked "Una Parisonno"
In blaok letters; horo in another from
tho Patriotic Union, nnd horo aro
nvhich It ia not nocessnry
Speptoolo is bewitching and romantic an tho sun sliinos upon
tho mass of flowers at tho grave on this
Sabbath day.
A middle-aged woman, deeply vailed,
stands Tor hours near tho grave; and
some of those hero who recall the circumstances of Gambetta's death indulge
in speculations regarding bur that may
not bo without foundation.
A fow feet away from tlio tomb is a
lingo wooden pyramid, raised soon after
Gambetta's death seven yoars ago, for
tho purpose of displaying the artificial
memorial crowns and wreaths that woro
sent horo hy cities, Republican uommit-
lioos and patriotic organisations in ull
parts of Pcahcc. The pyramid is covered on nil sides, from Imso to apex,
with thoso mi uio'ials, which are of
many kinds ami designs.
There is no |» -nianent monumont
ovor the narrow tomb of tho French
statesman In tho Cemotory of tho
Chateau. The reason for this is thnt it
is not believed that his coffin will re-
ntaln in Nlco for many years. Tho
Governmentdosirosthdtitsboll bo removed for tho ilnnl interment to tho
rnnlhoon in Paris; hut bis father, who
yet. liven hero, a vory old man, positively nnd persistently refusos to allow it to
bo taken away from Nice. The probability in that tho roraoval will bo
brought about after tho death of tho
father.
Besides tho display at tho grave horo
in Nice, thero has beon nnothor during
tbo lust wook at Villo d'Avrny, near
Versailles, nt tho bouse whore Gamhet-
ta diott, ana we havo also news ot tho
holding of uommonnratiyo moo tings in
many other parts bf Franco. In short,
it id evident that th'- nnmo of Gambotta
isj yet ivnamo outrun -Jiitf that of muny
otitis political contemporaries In tho
mind of tin,* French peoplo.—John Swiu-
ton. in N. V. Sun.
AN  INTELLIGENT  HORCC.
A flood Ktoi-y Told l;y n Clittingo Ucalo
In Iron SitlVa.
Peoplo ivho lived In Chicago ton o*
fifteen yours ago will remember:, tan-
deio team of line Normandy horses that
used lo he driven about the streets
without rein. Thoy woro a wonder lo
tho peoplo of the city and a groat curiosity to visitors from tho country. They
delivered our goods for several yoars,
tho man on tho wagon guiding tho lead-
or hy a whistle. Wo got lottors yet
from the country asking about that
loam. Their names wero Pete, Dutch
nnd Frank. Pete was tho loader. He
was trained hy John Parmor, who has
been in our omploy as safe-mover and
deliverer for twenty yoars. Poto-was
tho smartest horse I over heard of. tic
would make his way through a big
crowd on tho streot without causing
any commotion whatever, unless lie
thought somebody was trying to hark
his legs. Thon ho would bito as viciously as a mad dog.
Ono day Poto slipped on a street-car
rail and hurt his side. Just as ho was
recovering ho ran a nail in one of his
feet. Ho died of blood poisoning. That
broko up tho toam. We tried savoral
horses for leaders, but novcr could
find ono to tako Poto's place. Tho authorities of tho city, who at first had a
prejudice against Poto and used to object to him working without roln, camo
to liko liim, but thoy woro never satisfied to have any othor horse try it.
There is a difference between training a
borso for trick work and training him
to do what Poto did. Poto was all business. He had more senso than some
peoplo. I muBt say, by tho way, that
you can't train any horse. Somo horses
novor loarn any thing. Aftor Poto
died and wo found that wo could got no
othor horso to tako his placo, wo sold
Dutch, and ho soon died. Tho man to
whom wo sold him was vory much attached to Dutch, and ho avers that
Dutch died of a broken hoart. Wo kopt
Frank until ho got too old for service.
Wo didn't want to part with him, so we
had him shot when ho gbt too old lo
work. There has nevor beon suoh a team
as Pete, Dutch and Frank in Chicago
since Poto died. Wo Mod a simitar
team In Now York, but tho crowded
stroots woro against tho scheme. Thoro
aro a number of suoh teams in Philadelphia. Did you ovor know that tho
business of safe-moving is ono that requires great caro? In twenty years wo
havo had vory fow damages to pay on
account of accidents to buildings or
teams. In all that timo wo havo novor
had a rope to break in tho hoisting of a
safe.—Chicago Tribuno.
A monster elm stands on tho Avery
Durfoo farm in  Wayno   County, between Palmyra and Marion, writes a
Syracuse (N. Y.) correspondent  Two
■ foot above tho ground it measures 33
foot in inches in circumference, and 6
feet above tbo ground 30 feet 10 inches.
It is 00 feet to the first limb.   Tho body
would make Ave 13-foot logs, averaging
.1,250 feot; tho total amount of lumber
in tho body of tho tree Is 10,300 foot, 11 is
estimated that thero Is sufficient lumbor
above the sawlog to mako tour cords of
4-foot wood.    Taking one-half of the
jdiamoter of tho tree 3 feet from tbe
ground, whioh is 48 inoheB, and allow-
l Ing each inch to represent ten years'
[ growth, the age is found to bo 480 years,
1 Cut into inch boards tho elm would
f cover nearly two-fifths of an aero of
1 ground.   It mado into Btovo-wood 10
inches in length there would bo sixty
cords.    Eighty yoars ago, whon the
farm was cleared, this tree was left as a
landmark.    It was thon a giant among
the forest trees.

CALLINC  BY  PROXY.
Same of tlio Peculiarities of Society Life
at Washington.
Vory littlo of tbo paying of visits by
peoplo in high official life ts dono in
person. Tbo President makes no calls.
Tho Vice-President does all his "oall-
ing" through bis private secretary,
whoso chief duty it is to rlcTo around in
a coupe and leave the cards of Mr. and
Mrs. Morton at the doors of houses
whero calls aro due. Tho members of
tbo Cabinet do most of their "calling"
hy mail. Tho mon whoso duty it is
do this "proxy" calling, I am informed, have any thing but an easy
timo. Biding about in a carriage all
day Is an attractive occupation when
viewed from a distance. It loses many
of its charms when it is praotised day
after day, and nearly all of its attractiveness when tt is interspersed by constant stoppages along tho route of travel.
Some of theso doputy Cabinet officers
mako fifty and sevonty-flve calls a day.
Thoy havo many amusing encounters,
for thoy visit all parts of tho city and
pay their respects, or rather the rospocts
of tholr superiors, to people ot all classes
ind conditions. Tho rocoptions of tho
ncmbersof tho Cabinet aro open to all
•omors, and all sorts of peoplo make
lie rounds Wednesdays. It is a social
■ .liligatlon to which all people In high
official ltfo must conform to roturn all
of tho calls. that aro mado upon them.
So the doputy secretaries spin around
iho city all day, driving from cottage to
pa'.nce, distributing graceful bits of
pasteboard, whioh tho roclpionts may
place on tholr center tables as muto ovi-
donoo to the uninitiated that tho Socre-
tary of has called upon them.   At
tho houses whoro "receiving" has been
thoroughly systematized, tho colored
man at tho door gracefully holds out his
. ulvor to receive tho cards, and watches
i !io rapid oscapo of tho card-boaror with*
cut surprise or coramont. At othor
homos whon tho coupe stops at tbo door
there aro evidences of preparation for
tlio reception going on within. Children poop out of tho window and' run
back with tho ovldont intention of "telling mumma" that somobody is about to
cull, Tho servitor throws wide tho
door to admit tho'oxpocted guest. Thon
thoro'Is n sudden pall thrown ovor tho
expectant community by tho bland announcement of tho young man With the
utril oaso that bo will not como In; and,
is the dour-keeper accepts tho cards in a
rather doubtful way, threo pairs of oyes
follow the young man in his progress to
.lie coupe, and watch it as It whirls
.lowri tbo street. At somo of tbo lowlier
Iwcllings it Is necessary to push the
curds under tho door and flee boforo tbo
bell isansworod for foar .that tho ambassador will bo dragged in by force of
sirms and made to pay his chief's call in
person. Theso littlo variations of tho
-ecustomed monotony are all that mako
lifo endurable to the professional official
cullers.—N. Y. Tribuno.

ttKNTI-KMKN:—An I have iiTrenily announced,
I hep to olfer myself us a candidate for the sent in
the Commoimnindo vacant by the death of our
late member, and I come before you un ii sup-
porter of the Government of Sir John Mucdon-
ulil. ivsi'i'viiiK to ...yseU, e.f course, the right to
act Independently should the notion of tho Government in any matter seem prcjndlcnl to our
1 nt crest h,
1 would strongly urge Immediate attention to
Ihe Improvement of the Kiver whero required,
for the iirtitcellon of tbe rich agricultural lnnds
of the District, ami if elected,! shnll nt once
proceed to ottnwn und Iciivu uo stouo unturned
l<> secure the Immediate appointment of n
1'innjK'lciit engineer with a view In tho prompt
undertaking of this most important work.
As you are aware, the duly on certain kinds
of mining uuu'liiucrv hits been remitted in this
Province iih ii Rpcctni concession to llrltlsh Columbia on account of tbe special conditions obtaining here. I would strongly urge the further
application of tbls principle of special tariff arrangements, so ns to relievo consumers of goods
which must lie imported, while preserving the
protection of onr agricultural and other interests,
Tho laud laws of Die Dominion, having been
framed without close consideration of our requirements, are In niiiiiv points unsuitable, for
example In the conditions as tn clearing. I
would emlenvor to secure immediate reform In
tliis Important matter.
Subsidies having lieen granted to railways In
tbo various Provinces of the Dominion, I should,
urgently present tbe clntniHto simitar assistance
of railways within our own Province.
Bhould tho City of New Westminster decide to
build r bridge across tbe Fraser, I should use
iiiytiesl ondeuvoM to obtain a substantial subsidy for tbo work, urging that ail undertaking
of this charnctcr should rank with canals nnd
railways ns one entitled to national aid.
The next census will undoubtedly show such
nn Increase In the wealth nnd population of this
District as will constitute an undeniable claim
to increased reiircse'ntatlon lu the Commons.
That claim, if elected, I shall support to the ut ■
most of my ability.
Although, with the growth of tho District,
the mall service has been improved and extended,it still lags far behind our requirements,
I should give special attention to this part of
your representative's work, feeling thnt It Is
one which Is of vital importance
I i.hould urge the enactment of such fishery
regulations, especially in the Issuing of licences,
ns would, without any injustice to the canneries, the importance of which to the prosperity of
the District all must recognize, fully protect
the freo fishermen, and encourage ihe settlement amongst us of tho greatest possible number of thut Industrious <n,d hanly cIiihh of men.
All enactmcuts and regulations for the protection of white labor would receive my hearty
support.
Continued work towards tho Improvement of
the harbors of New Westminster and Vancouver, and the cflleleut lighting and buoying of
the same, is a mutter which would have my
closest attention at all times.
In a word, I should constantly urge upon Ihe
Government the wisdom of n liberal policy in
public works in tills District, the vast resources
of which mnke It certain thai such a policy
would be amply Justllied by results.
Trusting to have the opportunity of seeing
overy elector before polling day,
I am, (ieiitlcmeii,

!r. A. .11. Nelson Attacked liy Footpads at Victoria TiiU Morning and
Is Very Badly Wounded,
Our Victoria correspondent sends us
the following despatch;
A lusty cry for help, at a few minutes
after midnight, attracted the attention
of the watchman on the C.P.N. Co's
wharf. He quickly investigated and
found lying on the road, about midway
between Wharf street and the dock, a
tall, grey-bearded man, from whose head
and face blood was flowing freely. He
was picked up and carried aboard the
Islander, where Dr. Milne was soon in
attendance upon him. It was found
half a dozen stitches were necessary in
dressing the wounds, one of which extended to the skull; the other waa in
the face. Both, the doctor declared,
were produced byjblows from some
blunt instrument. The injured
man was immediately recognized
as Mr. A. M. Nelson, of Westminster,
Wheu be had been made comfortable,
ho stated that he had been walking
down to the boat, when two men, whose
faces ho could not recognize, and whose
clothes he could not describe, sprang
upon him from behind. Ho had a load-
oil cane in his hand with which he defended himself, at the same time shouting for help. One of the mon made nn
effort to put his hand in Mr. Nelson's
pocket; tne other struck him itivice
over tho head with a heavy stick. .Their
attempt at robbery was frustrated, and
both footpads then took to their heels.
Officer Win was summoned hy
Doctor Milne, and lost no time
iu investigating tho affair as thoroughly
as possible. He could, howover, obtain
no practical clue. Mr. Nelson was subsequently removed to tho Oriental Hotel, where he will remain until fully recovered from tho effects of hiB adventure. This morning Mr. Nelson is in a
pretty bad condition, but it is hoped ho
wilt be around in a few days. He wore
a hard hat at the time the assault was
made. The hat was smashed iu, and he
thinks its resistance saved his life. The
police are actively trying to catch the
desperadoes. General surprise is expressed that there are such desperate
men in our midst, and the sooner they
ure disposed of the bettor.

Lt is satisfactory to learn that very
good progress has been made by the
committee appointed by the Westminster Rowing Club to enquire into ways
and means. All the boat-building firms
in the City are prepnred to offer a most
generous aud hearty support and make
the most liberal concessions to help tho
club establish itself on a firm basis from
the commencement. Communications
of a most flattering and encouraging
description have bijen received from the
captains of rowing clubs in tho neighboring cities, and tho formation of the
Royal City Club is looked upon with
evory feeling of kindliness and favor.
It is to bo hoped that the meeting in the
City Hall next Wednesday evening at
8 o clock will be attended not only by
those who are going to take an active
part in tho operations of tho club, but
by everybody who feels that legitimate
athletics should be fostered in the Citv.
There is good ground for tho assertion
that the rate of subscription will be
placed at so moderate a rate aa not to
present a difficulty to young men of circumscribed means. In conclusion it
may be stated that from the appearance
of the matter at the present time this
project will not fall through this timo.
Should no unforseen occurrence arise to
delay tho club getting nt once to work,
the club will be able to havo a strong
four-oared crow ready to compete in all
the amateur matches this summer and
full.
Mr. Hendry Denies the Imputation.
Tn reference to tho statement by a
correspondent, "Citizen," in yesterday's issuo, that Mr. Hendry had, "ou
?t certain occasion," "telegraphed the
late nnd lamented Mr. Homer to resign
his seat at Ottawa," Mr. John Hendry,
accompanied by Mr. Thos. Cunningham,
M.P.P., waited on us this morning, and
Mr. Hendry states "that ho sent no
" such telegram to tho lato Mr. Homer,
requesting him to resign." About
live or six yoars ago, it is oxplained,
Mr. Thos. Cunningham aud Mr. Hendry
were appointed a committee by
public meeting held in this
City to communicate with the
principal points in the district
to secure united action with tho object
of bringing about tho amendment of the
then unsuitable Dominion land laws,
which sought to apply the regulations
iu Manitoba and tho Northwest to this
Province. Many of our readers
•will recollect the occasion, und that,
through the efforts of the committee
mentioned, and tho public expression
on tho subject, the obnoxious regulations wore amended accordingly. The
only criticism, Mr. Hendry Bays, thnt
the committee received at tho timo was
thnt all their communications were sent
direct to Sir John Macdonald, instead of
through tho late Mr. Horaor, thon
representing this District in
tho Commons. Mr. Cunningham,
who was the first man of
tho committee, so to speak, and
had charge of the corresponding, "be-
" lieves that all tho correspondence and
" telegrams passed through his hands,
" and that no such telegram was sent
" with his knowledge."
We might add to thisstatemeut of tho
caeo, that Mr. Hendry demanded the
name of our correspondent, which we,
of course, refused, and that Mr, Hendry
wishes a more or loss formal retract ion
iu a few days, or ho will feel obliged to
take action against thia paper. This is
whore tho matter rests until our correspondent's evidence for the assertion hus
boon brought down.
after being released Jim left for Fort
Rupart, and is supposed to be there now.
Mr. Moresby was given full powers by
the Government to act in the case, and
on Thursday he left for tbo north on the
steamer Skidegate, accompanied by several Vancouver constables. On Tuesday
four canoe loads of Indians left the Inlet
for Fort Rupert to warn Jim of his danger, and it is a matter of speed only that
will give Jim his freedom or bring
about his hanging.
An Island Opinion.
It would be supposed that sinco the
Colonist cannot justify it would cease
attempting to excuse the Constitution
Act, and particularly on the ground that
the Government did the best they couW
with tho information at their command.
Redistribution had been the talk for a
year. It was tolerably well understood
a year ago or more that redistribution
had to come, and that it would be the
crowning act of the final session of the
House. At the very leaBt tho Government had ton months to procure data
whereon to base a plan of redistribution.
Did the Government make an effort to
secure this data? According to their
own story they did not. When the
Houso convened, and oven up to the
middle of the session, the Government
presumably were not aware of the number of registered voters in the City of
Vancouver,nor, according to all accounts,
had the Government taken any of its
supporters into their confidence. When
thp House convened, there was not a
Government supporter, unless they most
cgregiously prevaricated, who had any
idea of redistribution. Was tbere any
excuse for this? Are tho resources and
industries of tliia Province so varied, and
the population bo immense that a fairly
accurato understanding of provincial
conditions might not have been hud in
the space of ten months? It seems to
us that tho Government in offering the
pica of ignorance iu justification of their
measure simply furnish an argument
which reacts against thom like a boom
orang.— Times,   ■
 ».-»—♦— .
Are They Drowned?
Circumstances point to an evident
case of drowning of two klootchmen lust
evening. The fucts, up to the Inst moment, were of tho most meagre character, and only showed tbat a Siwash Indian came, in a very excited Btate, to
Mr. M. R. Smith's house and, as well as
hia frenzy would allow him to speak, he
told Mr. Smith that he had formed one
of a party of three in a canoe. Tlio
water was somewhat rough, and, by
somo means or Other, the canoe was upset, tho Indian, obeying the first law of
nature—self-preservation—swamnshore.
Ho had every reason to believe thnt the
other two, who were klootchmen, and
unable to swim, were lost. The affair
occurred jiiBt outside the outer wharf,
but it seems almost a miracle that a canoe, managed by an Indian, should be
overturned. Mr. Smith telephoned the
intelligence to the police station, and
the information was afterwards corroborated by a report from Bpecial officer
Irving, near whose beat the accident occurred. It being out of the jurisdiction
of the city police to interfere in the matter, tho provincial authorities wore notified nnd tho case placed in Sergeant

Still  Missing.
Hon. Henry Boyle, who was in Seattle
a week ago lost Suturdoy, seeking information of his missing brother, Viscount
Robert Boyle, proceeded to Portland to
see Selective Sullivan, of Thiel's Detective Agency, for the purpose of securing
his assistance iu gleaning information
concerning hia brother. R, T. Haslam,
of this city, au old friend of Hon. Henry
Boyle, received a letter day before yesterday, dated at San Francisco, May 9th,
and informing him thnt ho thought
more could bo done by going lo San
FranciBCo than by remaining in Port
land. Since arriving there, ho had ascertained that a pasaongei*. registered us
as "R. Bohl," had arrived in Sun Francisco from Tueomn on tho steamer Mexico, November 29,1887. This date tallies
with the date Viscount Boyle left Vancouver, B. C, namely, November 14,
and ho feels certain it must have been
his brother. He thinks tho viscount
must havo sailed from San FranciBco for
either South America or Africa, and
that ho will yet be found alive. Mr.
Haslam says lie is of' tho opinion that
Viscount Bovlo has mot with foul play
or accidentally fallen off a wharf, and
while it is reasonable for his brother to
hopo for news of him, tho probabilities
are that tho viscount will nover he found
alive.—Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Hunting i, Murderer.
Four ennne load, of Iiulinii. nnd Mr.
W. More.by, governor of the provincial
gaol, are running nn exciting race nt tlie
present moment. Mr. Moresby lmH ono<
great advantage over tlie Siyranhos—lie
is on a steamer, but the Siwasho. in
turn have a great advantage over Mr.
Moresby, they having two full dnyB
start. The raco is to Fort Rupert, nearly 300 miles, nnd the chances are that
Mr. Moresby will win.
Our readers will remember the
murder of Henry T. Sunbury, at
Vancouver, which occurred on the
night Of tho 28th of March last.
No duo to tlio murderer could
bo found, but Mr. Moresby and tho Vancouver police havo beon working on the
caso over since. On tho night of tho
murder a Fort Rupert Indian was arrested for drunkenness, and the next
day roleascd. This was tbe murderer of
Sunbury. After working up the case
tho pollco arrested two witnesses to tlie
crime, Billy nnd Johnny, who wero locked up nnd at length induced to tell the
circuiiistnncus in connection with the
murdor, They gave their accounts nt
different times and ns they agreed to tho
minutest details thero is little doubt tho
story they tell is correct. Thoy say that
at about 11 o'clock on Friday night the
28th of Marcli tbey (Billy and Johnny),
wero with Bam, Jim and Crazy Annie on
the railway truck east of the vancouvor
Saw Mill. Tho whole party had boon
drinking und Sam and Jim woro vorv
drunk. They wero joined there
by Sunbury. Jim, some timo after
Sunliury's arrival, quarrelled witli his
Klootchman, Orn.y Annie, and began to
boat hor. Sunbury Interfered und took
the woman's part, whereupon Snm
struck liim, knocking him doWn, While
Sunbury was on tho ground Sam caught
his hand, pressed Tils knees on his
breast and hold him down while Jim
took a largo reek nnd began to boat Sun-
bury's head and finally killed liim.
When tho Indiana had accomplished
thoir object they slrlppod Sunbury's
body, nnd after this they took tho corpse
and deposited It whore ft was found on
the following   Sundny.    Immediately
-.Htim'h nf Hit' "Hun A-fl.ril."
As gracefully and as stately as a lady
ontering a drawing-room did the "Bon
Accord" glide into tho water Inst evening
at the bidding of Miss Watson, who ulso
gave her the name that will distinguish
her froib other craft ou the bosom of the
mighty Frasor. For a boat of her character she is remarkably woll put together and sits nicely in the water. Au account of her capacity, power and dimensions lias already appeared, nnd now
that she is completed it is but just to
say that all that was promised of her is
ably and faithfully carried out so far
as Messrs. Clarke & Watson are con-
ccrnedi in fact their work is highly
creditable Xow sho is under the jurisdiction of the Albion Works until her
engines aud boilers nre put in place.
Sho will bo extremely powerful for her
size, nnd will bo von- fast. In her
Messrs. D. ,1. Miinn & Co. havo made a
desirable addition to tlio Fraser river

TO THE ELECTORS
 OF	
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view oi the near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of our late
representative (the much-respected D.
Chisholm) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before you
some of my views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.
I have beeu asked what I mean when
I announce myself aB a Liberal-Conservative: I reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residence of over SO years in this Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has had the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
me liberal ideas, therefore I claim! am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that party lines are not denned in
British Columbia as they are in the older
provinces, I consider that our representatives are not in duty bound to give a
through-thick-and-thin support to any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
good measures which may be brought
before them, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, and
should a measure come before them
which they consider in any way detrimental to the interests of this Province
they should take their stand like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which wo cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, and in many cases tne articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from tlie Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles are brought from the States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross tne border for it,
and are met with such heavy duties
that heads of families in this Province
pay more than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
We have had example to the point during the lust three months. If we had
not received a good supply from California there would have been a meat
famine; as it is we ure now and have
been paying 25 ccnta per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the same state of
affairs is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for the last cloven years
our stock raisers aro little better prepared to meet hard winters than they
wero before, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
N. P. are the manufacturers. As a true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of tho
(]ucst.on,I would advocate "Reciprocity"
in many articles which arc at present in the Tariff lists, ns 1 think
it would be benciiciul to both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go down bo deep into, his
pockets to buy what he needs to eat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
huve a revenue to carry on the affairs of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more and get at the pockets of the
richer classes who can better afford to
pay tuxes.
Owing to Ihe long continued sickness
of the late Mr. Chisholiu, ho was unable
to bu in his place this BCHsion, and very
little during the previous one, so we of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before the notice of
the House. Had ho (Mr. Chisholm)
beeu iu his scat, I do not think the Post-
master-Goneral would have heen left so
much in the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Fraser aB he seems to have been
when he proposed to cut off the mail
subsidy from that important route, aud
there are other places" in the District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider should receivo that gentleman's earliest attention,
I hope that in the near future our
District will reach that point that we
may look for it to bo divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, and when the census
returns aro in I think tho necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation.
The protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receivo my earnest
attention, also the works for improving
the channel at tho Bandheads, in view
of tho expected increase in our shipping
interests.
I consider tho Province should havo
control over all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Onr Fishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District in particular, I feel Bhould receivo more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge tho cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from the mouth
of the Serpen tino to Frusor Kiver, also
to enquire into tho question of cutting
one from the Frasor Kiver to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to me.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, and encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it Ib coming hero fast
enough; I would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disguBted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
There are many other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would make
this address too long. I hope to see as
many as possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon aB possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send due notice of time and place of meetings.
During my long residence in the Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Bhould I have the honor to be ejected
I assure you I shall watch over the interests of this District faithfully and to
the best of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go as a true British Columbian and to do my duty as such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.
