Lahneh's, June 7.—Taking up the line
of inarch on Friday morning, tho regiment of candidates advanced slowly and
cautiously on Hall's Prairie, where it
was expected the next skirmish would
take place. The only reason, however
for the slowness of the march was the
horrible condition of the roads, which
are almost impassable at places, and
flungerous in tho extreme. Finally the
furringe hearing your correspondent
net with un, accident, placing it hors de
■omhat, anirfho occupants in the unenviable necessity of making their way on
footer threo or four miles to Mr. H. T.
Thrift's ranch, whore new spars had to
bojhije'd before tho'march could be re-
ijmSed.
'" On reaching the school house at Hall's
Prnirio, only threo electors were found
to be present, the notice of the meeting
having only arrived that day. No meeting was held, and the route was taken
up for Surrey Centro, which was reachod
safely and in good time.
SOI.lI) SURREY.
The meeting was held ut the Town
Hall, at 7 o'clock Friday evening, Mr.
Wiltshire presiding. There was a large
audience present, and one of the most
earnest mot with on the trip. Messrs.
Henderson, Herring, Kirkland, Kitchen,
Punch, Sinclair, Sword, Thompson and
Glover addressed the meeting and all
wero given a good hearing, Mr. Punch
nnd Mr. Kitchen were the favorites, but
the audience was certainly very impartial. The Independent platform evoked
the greatest enthusiasm, and it was
plain thut the Surrey fanners had a
strong leaning in that direction. It was
admitted tlio Independents put forward
the soundest arguments, and that the
ticket would poll tivery large .vote on
the 18th,   Surrey isBoltd.
THK PIltST REPULSE.
The first victory for the Government
candidates wub obtained at Elgin. This
place turned out to be strong Robsonian
and for tho first timo in the campaign
the Government men felt real happy.
At least three-fourths of the audience
favored the Government candidates,
and us a consequence theso gentlemen
favored tho policy of the Government
more strongly and more honestly than
ut any previous meeting. Apart from
the speeches made by the candidates,
addresses were given by Mr. Ferguson
and Mr. Davidson, the chairman, The
latter gentleman had been put in the
: chair for the reason that he wasa strong
jnnd able supporter of the Mainland
Rights policy. Ho was too good a man
to bo given a chance to speak on the
platform in defence of his principles,
nnd he wus voted into tho chair. After
the candidates had addressed the meet*
ing, however, Mr. Davidson's friends
insisted on his speaking, and he complied. -He gave an able and eloquent
speech, endorsing tho Mainland Rights
platform, and pointing out that the
only salvation for this section of tho
Provinco was the Bending of straight
Independent men to tho House. Mr.
Davidson's speech was well received,
and had an excellent effect.
THE DELTA MEKTIXd.
The Ladners meeting turned out to he
the second largest since the opening of
the campaign, that of Chilliwack only
equaling it. Every seat in the Town
Hall was occupied, and a large number
of ladies were in the audience. Mr. E,
Hutcherson occupied tho chair und Mr,
H. M. Rich was appointed secretary.
Tho meeting wub good in evory respect,
and the Delta farmers did themselves
honor by giving every candidate a fair
and patient hearing. There was n slight
attempt ou the part of certain persons
to interfere with tlio general good order
that prevailed, but this was confined to
only a vory small knot, and the whole
meeting frowned down the nuisance
aud it tailed in its object.
Mr. Henderson took the platform first
and explained his policy. He favored
the Government for many reasons. It
wub progressive and liberal, and conducted fn the best interests of the people. On tho matter of redistribution he
wus iu accord with the Independent
candidates, and would oppose any measure not in tho interests of the Mainland. Mr. Henderson waB liberally applauded on taking his seat,
Mr. Herring was the next speaker
and went into his policy in detail. If
elected ho would advocate tho borrowing of a large sum of money to be spent
on roads, bridges and dyking throughout the District. Ho would endeavor to
have the education act so amended that
the powor of cancelling a teacher's certificate should be taken from the Minister of Education, and vested in the trustees. Tho speaker hud hardly finished
when a bunch of firecrackers was exploded outside the door. This caused
some amusement which, however, soon
died out.
Mr. John Oliver crosB-qucstioned Mr.
Herring on his policy, and then turned
to personal matters, but was quickly
called to order by the chairman.
Mr. Kirkland received a storm of ai
plauso on taking the platform. He
came beforo tho audience ns an old resident of the district, and closely connected with its growth and prosperity,
He had seen a great advance in the!
prosperity of the district in the last
eight years, aud this, to a certain extent was tho outcome of good government. He promised to support the
Government in all good measureB and
those which were beniticinl and just to
the district or to tho general welfare of
the Province. Some parts of the district, perhaps, had been overlooked by
the Government, but its policy on the
whole had been progressive, and it had
endeavored to develop the district and
its resources. He would be an independent supporter of the Government.
It had been suid that he should have
adopted tho straight Independent ticket,
hut ho did not think so. Were he not
in the confidence of the Government he
would not be in a position to take his
place in caucus. The greatest part of
the business of the Houso was dono in
caucus, and were he barred from that he
would not be able to guard the interests
of his constituents so well. The Opposition was powerless, and he could not
see any advantage iu being an Independent. But at the same time he
would not be bound or gagged by the
Government. If elected he would work
for tho interests of the whole Provinco
alike. He also favored the borrowing of
monoy for the opening up of the agricultural portions of tho Province; also
the loaning of money by tho Government to the municipalities for the
dyking of overflowed lands. Time being
up tho speaker took hia Beat amidst
hearty and continued rounds of np-
plauBe.
Mr. Kitchen was not well and did not
feel in good form for speaking, hut made
an able address all tho same, Ho came
out squarely on tho Independent ticket
—not Opposition—for the Opposition had
no policy, and he would not pledge himself to the Government for many reasons.
The Mainland had asked for redistribution, but it only got on amendment to
the constitution in the shape of tacking
three new members to the Island and
giving the same number to the Mainland. But tho difference was that the
Mainland was entitled to what it got,
while the Island was not. The bill was
an injustice to the Mainland, and Hon.
Mr. Robson admitted it, but he allowed
it to become law all the same. The
Premier blamed his colleagues for this
bill, but he asked the people to return
members who would support the present
cabinet and keop it in power. This was
hardly consistent if lion. Mr. Robson
wished to give tlie Mainland its just
rights. If tlie district returned Government support ere there would bc nochance
iu the next four years of obtaining a
just redistribution measure, consequently if this was dono the people
would have no right to complain, it was
the resultj-f their own doings. [Ap-
plauBe. | The proper way to do would be
to send a full ticket of straight independents, who would join with tho
other Independents and form very probably, tho balance of power in the House.
There was a certainty that the noxt
Houso would hold a large Independent
following. Ho strongly favored the
borrowing of n large sum of money for
}>ublic improvements, but would not
avor such a measure until such time us
there was sufficient Mainland force in
the House to see that we get our just
share of the money. [Groat applause. J
If the money wns borrowed now the
Island would got the lion's share of it,
but Westminster District would have
the lion's share of the loan to pay. If
elected he would endeavor to have the
laud retained for the actual settlers, and
not given ovor as it is at present to
speculators, who hold it tor selfish purposes nnd thus prevent the development
of the country. [Applause.) He ulso
promised to have the tax on wild lands
largely Increased so that speculators
would be forced to sell. In conclusion
Mr. Kitchen asked the electors not to
vote for the loaves and fishes, but to
send good Independent men to the
House, nnd let Mr. Robson go to Cariboo. Great applause greeted the conclusion of his remarks.
Mr. Punch was well received. He
spoke shortly, but to the point, proclaiming himself an Independent. He
had been largely interested in the development of the District, and had a
good knowledgo of its wants, consequently he wub in good position to forward its interests in the House. If
elected ho would endeavor to have the
District divided into ridings, so that the
representation would be more equal and
fair. A free traffic bridge between
Brownsville and Westminster would
receive his hearty support; also a bridge
over the Pitt River. Ho was strongly
opposed to Chinese immigration, and
would introduce legislation to keep the
evil within narrow bounds. (Applause.)
He thought a railroad from Hope to
Ladner's should bo one of the first things
in the way of improvements. The borrowing of money for roads aud bridges
waB necessary, and he would support
uny good mensure in this hue. The
redistribution measure was au injustice
to the Mainland, and there was only one
way of gotting out of the difficulty, and
thnt was by sending straight Independent members to the House. Hearty
applause was awarded Mr. Punch whon
he bowed his adieu to tho audience.
Mr. Sinclair followed and gave a very
food speech, dwelling on the main points
n his address and announcing the policy
he would adopt if elected. After Mr.
Sinclair hnd finished speaking Mr. John
Oliver asked him what encouragement
it was to farmers to have city men coining out to represent them. Mr. Sinclair
replied that lie had sold out his grocery
store and was now as much a resident of
the District as of the city. Mr. Oliver
thon enquired of Mr. Sinclair if he did
not think there were many farmers
throughout the District better able to
represent the constituency than cither
of tho city men. To this Mr. Sinclair
replied in the affirmative and then took
his seat amidst much laughter and merriment.
Mr. Sword was warmly welcomed
when he took the platform. He appealed to tlio electors on the straight
Independent ticket, and did not believe
Mr. Robson should bo returned from
thia constituency (slight applause). If
wo returned Mr, Robson, we would bo
endorsing his action in the redistribution measure, and that one could not do,
Mr. Robson had suid a pocket borough
of the Government Bhould he the constituency of tlie Premier nnd he agreed
with the honorable gentleman and
thought ho should be given to Cariboo.
He was minister of mines und that was
the right place for him. The speaker
wished it to bo distinctly understood
that he came out aB an Independent—
not Opposition—and would not ally
himself to any party until he first found
that iti principles - and policy were
worthy of support. But in any instance
ho would bo bound to no p^rly. The
argument had been used (and he
thought it cowardly?! "«*to defeat the
Premier would rf«ult in the reducing of
appropriations for thiB District. He
did «ot believe any Government would
dare to follow such a policy; but at the
same time he was certain lots of votes
would be cast for the Hon. John Robson
out of fear. Regarding the work done
in caucus, he thought there was a little
too much done in tliis way; the floor of
the House is the place for legislation to
bo formed, not cut nnd dried In secret
session and thon shoved through by
party strength, Hnd there been more
Independent members in the House
when the Redistribution Bill wns drawn
up, more about the measure would now
be known. Mr. Robson Bald he could
not get tho bill through as he wished it,
consequently thore must have been a
great power behind the throne, and It
was the duty of the electors to return
Independent men who would destroy
power by avoiding allegiance to party.
Mr. Sword's remarks were loudly applauded.
Capt. Thompson was the last speaker.
Ho came before the electors as a free
and Independent supporter of tho Gov
eminent, or that portion of it which favored the Mainland, but not the section
that forced the Government to pass the
Redistribution Bill. He was prepared
to join with the other candidates in
bringing about just Government. Mr.
Robaon had said that if given a largo
Mainland support he would appeal to
the country on the Redistribution question if necessary. He would support all
just measures for Mainland and Island
alike, and try to put an ond to sectionalism, lt rested with the electors to return the proper men. If Hon. John
wns rejected it would weaken our hands
(slight applause). He was not blind to
tho fact that there were many faults in
tlie Government, but he would not
support thoso faults, and would not ho
tied hand and foot to party. He favored a general policy of improvements
for the Province at large, and asked the
eleotors to return him on the 13th.
Much applause greeted the conclusion
of his speech.
This concluded the speeches of the
candidates, and calls wero inndo on Mr.
Thos. E. Ladner and Mr. Arthur to address the meeting. Both gentlemen declined to speak, aud then Mr. John
Oliver was called on.
Mr. Oliver said ho had been called on
probably because he hud lots of cheek.
Tho speakers all agreed that the redistribution bill was not right, and ho was
in accord with them, but at the same
time he would advise the electors to return the Government supporters. The
business of the House is framed In caucus, and our representative! should be
in it. He then criticised the policy of
the mining act and public improvements, nnd laid down what he considered itproperpoliey for the Government
to adopt. Then Mr. Oliver turned on
Tiie Columbian and said ho hud good
authority for saying the reports of the
political meetings throughout the district were not correct: further, that The
Columbian hud published un item
which wub a direct insult to the whole
peoplo of this constituency, nud lastly,
that the need of a ronily good newspaper
in thia district wns bndlv felt (Laughter.)
Calls were made for Mr. Glover, who
promptly responded, and thanked the
audience for the opportunity of refuting
the charges made by Mr. Oliver. In the
first place the reports of the meetings in
question were nil authentic, and not h
word in them was anything lint truth,
and he defied any gentleman present nt
those meetings to' say otherwise. Owing
to tho lack of time and space the reports
were necessarily short, but all statements wero correct, lie knew where
the information given Mr. Oliver emanated from, nnd considered it a mean
trick as it placed that gentleman in
very unjust position.   It  wns all  '

result, of the change of platform or policy
made by Capt. Thompson, whom the
Bpeaker had had oi.cuB.on to correct at
Langley Prairie. He did not wish to go
into particulars in this matter ou the
grounds of personal friondship, but
evory word could bo proven by the ihobI
respectable citizens of Langley If necessary. Regarding the insult to the farmers by the Columbian he knew nothing about it, not having seen the article
in question. At this point the paper
containing the item wns handed to Mr,
Glover, who saw ut once that it was it
piece of reprint from the Victoria Times
and not a Columbian editorial. When
this fact was pointed out to the audience
a general titter went round at the indignation displayed bv Mr. Oliver.
Mr. Oliver rose und said it wus un
insult all the same, and The Columbian
had uo right to print it.
Mr. Glover responded saying it was
nonsense to talk about suppressing the
liberty of the press, for the liberty of
the press ensured the liberty of the
people (applause). Every newspaper
copied from other journals; if they did
not there would be little news in it. As
far ns concerned tho general policy of
The Columbian, it was admitted by
nil that it always defended the best interests of the farmers throughout the
district and for the last three years at
least had dono all that it possibly could
towards making known t he grent advantages and resources of the Province
at large and WeBtminster district in
particular. Of course some peoplo might
not like The Colombian; but they nre
not forced to tako it, and those taking it
and not satisfied arc welcome to cancel
their subscriptions at any moment.
Capt. Thompson rose nnd said he
wanted to deny that ho had over changed hia opinions, nnd would "throw the
lie in his teeth." He also considered
The Columbian reports highly colored.
The following motion was introduced:
Moved by W. McKee and seconded by
Mr. T. E. Ladner: Thnt this meeting
agrees to support Hou. John Robson
and the Government candidates.
The chairman put the motion and
asked for a show of hands. Eight weni
up in its favor nnd thirteen against. At
this there were cries of 'iost, lost."
The chairman, however, declared the
motion was carried by two to one, which
decision was received with cries of "no,

l..-L'c-lv.'.l---,Vii Iiniiortant Resolution
I'RMeil.
The annual Public School meeting was
held this morning at 11 o'clock at tbe
City Hall, Mayor Brown, ex officio chairman of the Board of School Trustees,
presided. It wns not so hugely at tended
ns its importance demunded. The following interesting report for the year
was submitted by the secretary of the
School Board, Mr. John McKenzie:
To the school electors and others of
New Westminster City:
Had the time for the presentation of
the annual report of the school affairs
of the city not been fixed by law your
trustees would gladly postpone the matter until the excitement incident to a
general Provincial election should have
subsided, but it is possible that the inroads made upon your attention in
regard to this question may be a Providential safety valve to your thoughts
und anxieties.
We mav remark, that it is but just to
tho | all the Governments of this Province
since 1872 to concede that nl though complaints of delinquency wero sometimes
heard, yet there hna boon a marked
steady advance in educational matters,
perhaps moro than proportional to the
increase of population und expansion of
our Provincial industries.. One town
vies with another, one country district
with another, in respect of school facilities.
New Wcatmiuster City has made some
progress in the extension of the system,
una improvement In internal affairs
during the past year, but the rapid progress of late, calls for still greater enlargement in buildings, etc.
At the beginning of the school year
additional strength waB made to the
Central school, and the Weat Side school
was provided for the rising needs of that
Eortion of the city. Both that school
ouso and the one at Sapperton are
now, however, far too small, and provision has been made for the immediate
enlargement of them. The Central
school mustere long be replaced by a commodious brick structure. Tt is difficult
to proas upon the Government to provide matters from any future point of
view—the pnst is taken as a oasis of
action; but we have the reality of a
prosperous city—a condition upon which
safe calculations may hereafter be made.
During the year tho grounds atthe
Weat Side school have been well cleared
nnd fenced; the interior of the Central
school has been somewhat improved;
while the municipal construction of the
streets nnd sidewalks has very much
added to the general appearance of the
school proporty.
Tho internal work of the schools has
been very. satisfactory. Eleven boys
and eight girls passed tho entrance examination to the High School.
There has been a steady increase in
the number of pupils attending the public schools. The total number of different pupils enrolled in the year ending
80th June, 1880 was 415, to which add
Sapperton, 48, making a total of 408.
During the present year there have
beeu registered as different pupils at the
Central school, 480; nt Sapperton, 66;
ut tho West Side, «5; making a total of
000, or an increase of about 140.

We nro of tho opinion that this inequality is unjust and invidious, and
has been too long continued, and as we
know of no reason for this state of things
either on the part of the parents or the
children, nor in the qualifications, efficiency, or character of the teachers, nor
in the expense of living, wo hereby protest against the continuance of thiB
favoritism to one city of the Province.
We submit that a difference of fl,920a
year, in tho salaries of eleven teachers
in favor of Victoria is very unfair, and
we call tho special attention of the Hon.
John Robaon the minister of education,
and the representative from this City
iu the legislature, to thiB matter.
2d. Wo aro also of the opinion that ai
the female touchers have to. pass the
same examination as male touchers, and
the result of tholr labors are subjected
to the same test, and no allowance
inudo for them in any particular, and as
there is uo such discrimination againBt
thom in the country schools, they snould
bo paid the same salaries iu the city
schools as are paid to male teochers in
similar departments.   Carried.
This concluded the business, and the
meeting adjourned.

The "dexter optic cord" got in its
deadly work again yesterday; thiB time
ii gratuitous slander upon our noble

overy nerve strained to organize an institution in this city that should have
existed long ago a rowing club, the local
fable manufactory must grind out tho
assertion that "tho swiftness of the currant must materially interfere with that
amusement." When people are bo lazy
tlrat thoy will not try a thing for themselves, they fall bnck and say it cannot

this is nothing moro than usual. If it

would clap tho cover on the local well or

VOTK OX THK WINNING SIDE.
Tug Robson Government, as at present constituted, has lost the confidence
of the country, and cannot survive tho
elections. Tho Independent party
which will contain a number of the
lwst and ablest men in the country, will hold the balance of
power in tho next Parliament, and
control tho Government and the legislation in the interests of tho whole Province, and not in the interests of
cliques, rings, sectionnlists, nnd handlers,
The following table, computed on tbe
Colonist's classification of the candidates, made after the nominations.
fully sustains our assertions abovo, that
the Independents will hold tho balance
of power after the elections. We have
published this table before, but its importance is ample apology for bringing
the facts therein contained before the
electors again:

It will be clearly scon by the above
table that the People's Party will easily
hold tho " balance of power'-' in tho noxt
Parliament. By- combining with the
Opposition, tbo Independents will have
a majority of five over the Government,
and, counting them with the Government, tho Opposition proper would, of
course, be in a hopeleBs minority.
Reviewing the unnlysis, it will be
Been that we have divided Victoria
City's representation of four equally between Government and Opposition. It
is conceded on all hands thnt Messrs.
Beaven and Grunt will be returned in
the Capital City, nnd even Dr. Milne's
election is spoken of us very likely, so
that we ure well within the murk in
claiming two out of the four members
for the Opposition.
Esquimalt, according to all accounts,
will very probably go, as wo have put it,
ono Government and one Opposition,
Mr. C. E, Pooley representing the
former, and Mr. II, Helgensen, beating
Mr. D. W. Higgins, and winning a sent
for the Opposition. Victoria District,
with its two members, wo have given to
the Government, as we have not much
reason to expect the return of Mr. J.
W. Carey, the single Opposition candidate.
Cowichan, we have also, necessarily,
counted Government, ns none but Government candidates nre in the field.
Nanaimo City, we havo, of course, put
down as Independent, as Mr. T. Keith,
who was elected by acclamation for that
constituency, came bofore the electors
on tho Independent ticket, and is so
marked by the Colonist.
Nanaimo Dist, it will bo seen, according to the Colonist, could not muster a
single Government candidate, so we
have allowed it »no Opposition and one
Independent.
Alberni neccsBiirily goes \n ti,0 Government, there boing only two Government aBpiranls for tho newly-created
seat.
The Islands of the Gulf we have given
to the Opposition, thero being two Government candidates, and one Opposition,
and the latter, Capt. II. J. Robertson,
of Morosby Island, being a man of considerable force and ability.
Comox, with its three candidates, one
for each party, we have given to the Independents; itis ulmost certain to go
either Opposition or Independent, we
have reasons for believing. '
Coming to the Mainland, Vancouver
City ia first on the lint, and wo have
counted its two members us Independents. Thoy are certain lo be either Independents or Oppositionists. Just
here wo would notice thnt tho Colonist
hns classified Mr. F. C. Cotton wrongly,
as that gentleman, wo nre convinced, has
not tacked himself to tho Opposition
party, but, If elected, will be found in
the ranks of the Independents.
Westminster City, wo need hardly
nay, wo havo the best of grounds for
marking Independent, as Mayor Brown's
election, ever since hia candidature, has
been a foregone conclusion, and it is
only a question of tho extent of his
majority, which will he a rousing one.
We feel amply justified in anticipating that WeBtminster District will return the full Independent ticket of
three, and we would remark thnt the
Colonist is again wrong in classing Mr.
T. E. Kitchen us an Oppositionist, or,
for that matter, Mr. Sinclair either.
Both aro Independents,
We have counted two out of the three
Yale District members on the Independent ticket, ns Mr. Seinlin's election Ib
assured and that of Mr. Irwin very probable, nud both will bo found iu the Independent party iu tho House.
Lillooet District's representation of
two wo have divided between Government nnd Opposition, which is a reasonable forecast, with tho information at
our disposal.
Cariboo we have given to tho Government, necessarily, bb nono but Govern*
ment candidates are running.
West Kootenay, it will bo seen, goes
Independent by default.
East Kootenay we have given to the
Government, although Colonel Bnkor
stands about even chances of being defeated by Mr. law, tho Opposition candidate.
Cassiar from information obtainable,
Ib almost certain to return Mr. R, Cunningham, the Opposition candidate, who
is a man of great prominence and importance in the community. Besides,
Cassiar is a kind of Opposition preserve,
being the late constituency of the re-
doubtful Mayor Grant of Victoria, who
haa chosen on this occasion to contest
ttie.Capital constituency.
The reader can compare our computation and analysis of the probable results
of tho approaching election "'ith his own
idea of the situation and probabilities.
We submit that our figuring is reasonable, and the result will not vary a great
denl. It will be seen that three or four
members more than we allow can be
conceded to tho Government, and still
the People's Party will practically hold
the "balance of power." The outlook
is certainly most encouraging. All who
cast their votes for the Independent
tickets, will not only be on tho right
side, but ou the strong Bide as woll.

A western correspondent of tho Tor
onto Empire says: It is estimated that
no fewer limn 170,000 wolves nro roaming at largo iu Russia, and that tho inhabitants of the Vologda last year killed
no fewer than 40,000 and of the Kazan
district 21,000. In our Northwest the
wolves are not like the European ones,
of a very dangerous character. The
coyotes aro, however, at times troublesome ou the prairies, especially to flocks
of sheep. Somo time ago Sir John
LiBter-kayc imported a number of Belgian and Kronen wolf hounds and Scotch
deer hounds for tho purpose of hunting
down ■ these coyotes, and other breeds
of dogB have also been tried with fair
success. Hy means of these tho number of coyotes has beeu much reduced,
as many us seventeen having been
brought down in n single day on the
Cochrane ranche. The hounds are,
however, scarcely fast enough, aud with
a view to giving them a greater turn of
speed, Mr. Dangerdon, veterinary surgeon of, Calgary, hns just imported
two of tho fastest and .best bred grey
hounds ever shipped from England.

The Old Beaver.
Mr. Cohn will soon wreck the
veteran steamer Beaver, now lying
on the rocks near Vancouver, of which
Mr, Henry Saunders, of this city, Is the
owner. His plan Is to form a company
with a capital stock of about $2,500—
which amount would be required to do
the work—divided into shares of $100
ench, He would take five shares himself, Mr. Saunders would probably take
as many, and Capt. Rudlin and another
prominent sen captain would also "go
in." It was suggested to carefully remove the machinery, and place it on
exhibition at the capital, Victoria, aB an
example of what the engines of the first
steamer ou tho Pacific were like. Such
an exhibition would, no doubt, draw
well, whilo the woodwork would be converted into canes and other souvenirs
which would, no doubt, find n ready
sale. Another plan would be to raise
and repair tho old steamer, and keep
her at anchor in the harbor of Victoria
to bo visited by every tourist for generations to coma. As soon aa he Ib sure of
enough support in the work, Mr. Cohn
is ready to commence operations.—Colonist.

HEARTSEASE.
I found a faded pansy on tbe page
Of an old book, long lost, ono winter day;
Iti velvet heart was dim wltb dust and age;
Tbe beauty ot ita tints bad passed away.
Why did my eyes gaze through a mist of tears
Which dropped on that dead flower In tender
ratnf
Because, unbidden from tbe vanished yeara,
Old hopes, old dreams, old joys oame baok
again.
Faded away my quiet fireside nook.
And, on the wings of memory swiftly borne,
1 stood 'mid purple panstes by a brook
That sung and sparkled in the summer morn.
Rough winds no longer shook the dripping
trees,
Whose lenfless branches smote my lattice
pane;
I heard lur.iciui tho drowsy hum of bees
Among the roses in a winding lane.
June's mellow sunshine lay on all the land:
I saw tlio starry oyes of daisies shlno:
And from tho lingers of a clasping band
This purple pansy found Its way to mine.
Ah, mo'  To think of all the lonely tears
My oyes huvo wept since that blue summer
day,
Whon, flushed with trembling hopes and girlish fours,
In this old boon I hid my flower away.
You know my story, littlo palo Hcnrtseusci
As long us timo rolls on such tilings will be:
Death laid lib baud upon life's golden keys,
And all their melody was bushed for me.
Yot, dear, dead llowor, although tho old, old
pain
Still dims my sight and makes my bcurt beat
fust,
I know thut Coil will wulio for ine ugalu
In yours to eome Die muslo of tlio wist.

FOGG'S INVENTION.
Dire Results of an Attempt to Uso
His Flying-Machine.
For several day:. Fogg bad fcoen at
work in tho barn, with doors locked,
and a mantle of secrecy seemed to he
thrown over every thintf ho did, both
outside und in.
Mrs. Fogg questioned him in vain,
All sho oould elicit from tho man of
mystery was divors strange and awe-
inspiring grim aces which wero calculated to infitso tho beholder with tho bo*
lief thnt the manipulator or said grim*
noes was tlio victim of a severe attack
uf cramp cot io.
Mrs. Fogg, in nn unguarded moment,
confided ton Tow of her most intimttto
ei'onics In.! fears thut her husband was
a littlo bit off lu his upper story, and
thoBO busy-hodloal speedily circulated
tho report that Fogg roally waa crazy.
It was hfiieved, of course, and children fouglil shy ol tho Fogg domicile,
especially ufter dark. Fogg's grapes.
whicii were just getting ripe, escaped
dopredatora as they bad never done beforo, nnd Fogg wondered greatly thereat, but was far from suspecting tho real
causoof this miracle.
And still, day after day, Fogg labored
on In tho security of tho barn, hiss nearest
neighbors am using thomselves by listening to iho pounding of his hammer, and
remarking iu ono another that it was
too had, the affliction that hnd befallen
Fogg,
One evening Fogg rushed into tbo
prosonco of bis wifo and oxclalmed, triumphantly:
"It's dono, at Inst!"
Mrs. Fogg straightened up and looked
at her husband,
"What is 'done at last,' Mr. Fogg?"
she asked.
"Why, tho flying-machine, of course,"
was tho reply.
Mrs. Fogg regarded hor husband pityingly, for a fow moments.
"Mr. Fogg." sho remarked, Anally,
with ft rising inftofttlon, "do you mean
to say i hat you have gono and wasted
two weeks1 valuable limo trying to build
a flylug-maehineV"
Mr. Fogg suid that bo did moan it, but
as for tbo timo being wasted, lie denied
tliis. and be entered into sueh a spirited
uud eloquent explanation of his great
invention and its workings, tbat Mrs.
Fogg herself became onthtised to such
au extent as lo alJow of hor being prevailed upon to go down to tho barn and
lake a look at tho machine.
Wlittt she saw thero it will ho impossible to describe with any degree of accuracy. Only Fogg could do that, and, I
verily holiovo, if ho woro sitting here in
my place, doing tlio describing act himself, that he would bo unable to do tho
ease full justice. Suflleoitto say that
be had constructed a thing having a
wicker frame, mado so as to just fit upon
his baok. after tho fashion of a saddle,
with straps or bands to buckle around
liis body, while two monstrous wings,
also mado of wicker-work and covered
with thin oloth, woro attached to tbo
fame, and on each side, by binges. On
tho lower side of each wing were two
stout leather loops, through whioh the
operator was to thrust his arms and by
moans of which bo was to work tho wings
up and down whon in tho act of flying.
It was a great invontion—so Fogg
said, and lie ought to know something
about it, having mado tbo machine, but
Mrs. Fogg was skeptical. Womon always are skeptical and suspicious of
any thing whioh thoy do not understand, you know.
IJut Fogg was so enthusiastic tbat
Mrs. Fogg couldn't find heart to .give
vent to all tho doubts which sbe experienced regarding tho powor of this
thing to overcome the forco of gravity
und sail through space liko tbo birds
of tho air, wltb a passenger—presumably
Fogg, dangling beneath liko a hugo
worm in tho bill of ono of thoso samo
birds; so sho bold hot1 peace, kept still,
serene in tbe thought that if Fogg, in
his flight through space on tbe back—
or rather, beneath tho body—of his
wild, untamable flying-machine, should
accidentally knock tho cupola ofl tho
state house on Venus, or butt his brains
out against tho southwnst corner of
Jupiter, ho would bavo no ono to blame
for it but himself.
But Fogg experienced no misgivings;
hod no fears. Bo was so tickled over
tho successful completion of his flying*
machine that ho slept scarcely a wink
that nfght, and ho was up with tbo larks
noxt morning, making preparations for
what bo thought was going to bo tho
greatest lark of his life.
Aftor breakfast bo got his flying-machine out ot tho barn, and, accompanied
by Mrs, Fogg, wont down back of the
bog-lot to a bigb bluff whioh was thoro.
From tbls point Fogg decided ho would
take a riso in tho world, and tn tho estimation of bis neighbors and tbo public
at large ns well.
It was his intention to fly out ovor tho
river, circle around ovor tbo village, and
return to the starting point with great
eclat and flapping of wings. Yos, that
waB tho programme Fogg had mapped
out, but, owing to certain unexpected
developments, ho—but there! we'll go
ahead and tell you all about it.
Fogg took off his coat and got down on
his bands and knees, while Mrs, Fogg
placed tho flying machine upon hls.back
lind strapped tbe same securely to his
body. Then Fogg ran his arms through
tho loops on tbe under sido of tbo wings,
/arose to his feet, took up a position on
tho odgo of the cliff, and was all ready
to do tho great flying aot.
Mrs, Fogg looked ovor tho edge of tbo
ollffto tbo ground thirty or forty foot
below and shuddorod.
"Joshua," sho said, "you bad better
givo up tbls foolish notion of yours. If
you jump ovor thoro you'll bo killed
suro."
Fogg was feeling rather dubious him-
solf, but ho wouldn't let on to Ills wifo
"Oh, pshaw!" lie said, "thoro'ti nodnu*
gor whatever Thuls whoro the beauty
of my invention conies in. Without it,
to.iumpolf of here would suroly result
in a broken neck, but witli it there is
not tbe least danger—so hero goosf'and
suddenly spurring bimsolf on to the
deed, be shut his oyes, gavo a big flap
witli bis wings and jumped with all his
might straight out into space, while
Mrs. Fogg gavo a scream and foil to tho
ground in a faint, her last thought being tbat sho was a widow and would
have to wear black for six long months.
Fogg had flattered himself that all ho
would have to do would be to flap his
wings and sail through the ethereal
blue, but bo soon found tbat he had bit
off moro than he oould chow. Ho
flapped liis wings just once—before he
sprung ovor tho bluff. After that ho
couldn't mako the 'tarnal things flap to
save liim. Tho wind, as ho shot down
-through spaoe, quickly turned tho flappers up edgewise, and, try as ho would,
Fogg could not got them down again.
Ho was as helpless as a spitted frog, and
vory muoh resembled one. ■
Down ho went, for, it seemed to tho
falling inventor, an eternity, or the
larger half of thirteen minutes, at least.
Ho heartily repentod of over having invented, but repentance had come too
lato to do him any good. A vine, growing upon an outfitting portion of the
bluff, caught Fogg's feot, and turning
him a completo somersault, landed him
in tho bushy top of a big elm treo growing at tliefootof tho bluff, and inventor,
llyiug-macbino and all wont crashing
through the branches of the troolikoa
baby hurricane, tbo bewildered Fogg
alighting finally on his intellectual
cocoanrtt in tbo mud, going in up to his
shirt collar and whopping ovor onto his
back, whero bo lay still, dazed, senseless for tho time boing, whilo leaves,
twigs and small branches of the tree,
severed by tho groat invontor and his
wonderful flying-machiiio in tbeirsomo-
wbat hurried descent, showered down
upon him and almost mined mm from
view.
Here ho was found prosontly by his
wife, who had recovered from hor fainting fit and hastened down to tho Toot of
tho bluff by a roundabout route, and sho
managed to bring the unlucky invontor
to and get him to tbe houso and to bed,
whero ho remained for a weok.
He was a badly demoralized and dilapidated specimen of humanity. Evory
muscle and tendon in his body was
strained, his nose was knocked out of
plumb, several fingers and a thumb
woro broken, and, to crown all, his
backbono bad "telescoped" when he
alighted upon his head, thus causing a
loss of about six inches in height—no
small matter to a man only flvo feet tall
to start with.
Tbo flying-machine had oaught be-
twoon two limbs of tho treo as it came
down, and, tho straps breaking, had becomo disengaged from tho inventor, and
it remained there a source of wonderment and terror to the birds of the forest until Fogg was able to navigate
again, whon bo camo down, secured tho
great invention, took it to tbo houso
and chopped it up into kindling wood.
Fogg may at somo future time bo
again takon with tho fever for inventing, but if ho is ho will probably not
try to invent another flying-machine.
Should ho do so, however, ono would be
perfectly safo in betting big odds that
bo will get somo ono else to givo it the
first trial.—S. A. D. Cox, in Drake's
Magazine.   	
NOTES   FOR NATURALISTS.
Though tho cavity of tho whale's
mouth is big enough to contain a ship's
long boat, tho gullet is not larger than
a man's fist.
Tut: elephant's teeth are its unduly
developed upper incisors; thoso of tho
walrus aro its upper canines, and so aro
thoso of tho wild hog.
Tubiie are two birds at the London
Zoo that havo great reputations as ventriloquists. Ono is a crane-like bird
called tbo trumpeter and tho other is
tho emu.
The Sncozewoodof South Africa, commonly called Nelshout, produces wood
as bard and handsome as mahogany,
the sawdust of which is said to causo
violent sneezing—hence the name.
An electric vegetable is said to have
been discovered in India which has tho
power of affecting tho magnetic neodlo
nt a distanco of twenty feet whon tho
weather ia favorable. In rainy weather
it has no electric influence whatever.
Tbe African teak tree is noted for its
beautiful and valuable wood, and is
often called African oak. This treo is
similar to tho East Indian teak, but
must not be confounded with it, tot the
Indian teak treo belongs to an entirely
different family.
The blue ageratum, which Is cherished in England as a border flower,
was introduced into Ceylon hy an English ludy, whore it spread so rapidly,
running wild in tbe Island, that it now
costs moro than $1,250,000 annually to
keep it down in tho coffee plantations.
The spider's mouth is quite a complicated affair. It bas fangs for holding
its prey, masticatory organs for bruising
its solid food, and a sucking apparatus
for taking up tho fluids. Quito aB complicated is tho mouth of the mosquito,
which consists of the lances, the saws
and tho pumping-tubes,
In London specimens of Mexican dry
moss wero shown before tho Botanical
Society tbat wero green and flourishing,
although thoy had been shut up for
throe months in a dry place. Theso
plants aro said to have the power of rolling up In a ball when dry and becoming
apparently doad, only to bloom again,
however, when exposed to moisture,
Tin. Indian soap treo Ib said to be 'extensively used in South America for
washing purposes, and on tho Florida
coast two species grow which aro said to
contain Sopanln, so common in soveral
species of this genus. Tho hard, round
nutlets, or seeds, of some of tho spocles
are used for making rosaries, bracelets,
necklaces, etc., and a fow species have
edible outer coverings to their fruits;
but tbo seeds are poisonous.
At a lato mooting ot tho Royal
Botanic .Society an interesting sweet-
. scented torn from the society's garden
was exhibited. Tbo perfume closely
resembles that of fresh hay, and, liko it,
is retained after tbo frond is dry, and
lasts for many months If not yoars, imparting its fragrance to any thing in
contact with it. Tho secretary thought
it might bo grown as a source of porf umo
by amateurs, if not commercially.
Tlio Host of Government.
Washington was not tho seat of the
United Statos Government until 1800.
Tho soat of Govornmont was at Philadelphia from Soptembor 5,1774, till De-
coinbor, 1770; at Baltlmoro from December !.0,1770, until March, 1777; at Philadelphia from March i, 1777, to September, 1777; at Lancaster, Fa., from September 27 to Soptembor 80,1777; at York,
Pa., from Soptembor 80,1777 to July,
1778; at Philadelphia from Julys, 1778,
to Juno 80, 1783; at Princeton, N. J„
June 80 to November 20, 1788; at Annapolis from November 20,1788 to November 80, 1784; at Tronton from' No-
vombor, 1784 to January, 1786; at Now
York from January n, 1785 to 1790,
whon It was removed to Philadelphia
and remained thero until 1800, when it
was removed to Washington.
A Grip on Tomatoes,
Tho Yankee has got tho grip on
canned tomatoes, and even if a raw car-
rut is dropped into a oan occasionally to
llll up tlio consumer overlooks it on tho
ground of aooident. American tomatoes
are now sold in ovory country on tho
globe, und nro as familiar In Borneo as
in Chicago. .

Electors of Westminster District, don't
forget that Westminster City will send
a first-class Independent man to the
House, by au overwhelming majority;
Vancouver City will send two good and
able Independent men, no other could
be elected iu that city. It remains with
you to make up the "solid six" by electing the three staunch Independent men
before you—Messrs. Kitchen, Punch
and Sword. Do not waBte your votes,
then, by "splitting," but vote the
"straight" ticket. As you will see, by a
table and an analysis in the editorial
columns, on the second page, tho Independent party will be the winning party
in the elections all over the Province,
and will hold the balance of power in
the next Parliament.

Capt. Tliiiiiiiij-un DoclHreH Ho Did Not

Honest Wltnetii.es Say Uo Did.
At the Langley meeting of the candidates for election to tho Provincial Parliament, Reeve Maxwell put the following question to Capt. Thompson: "Do
you believe the Government pincere in
its promise of a just redistribution measure, and do you think that promise can
be depended on7" In reply Captain
Thompson snapped his fingors and said:
"It is not worth that."
At Langley Prairie the same evening
Capt. Thompson declared to the meet
ing that he had a full and direct promise
from the Government on a certain matter, and on being asked by Mr. Glover
how it was his confidence in the Government had grown so marvellously in a
couple of hours, ho replied that he had
nevor doubted it, and further denied
his answer to Reeve Maxwell. A Matsqui gentleman, Mr. C. J. Sim, who
had been preBeut at the Fort Langley
meeting, Btepped forward nnd fully endorsed the statement of Mr, Glover,
which Capt. Thompson did not further
attempt to deny. Tho best ovidonco in
the country can bo adduced to substantiate The Columbian's leport of the
question and answer, and yet Capt
Thompson took tlie platform at Ladner's
on Saturday night nud denied it, and
"throw the lio in his teeth." The Columbian will take the trouble to got
abundance of proof in this matter. Lots
of proof is forthcoming and will bo produced in duo time. Capt. Thompson aspersed tho Government's sincerity and
will not be allowed to deny it unchallenged.    —-—,,____________-,m
Youthful    Hiirgliiri.
For some timo past somo of the bad
boys of Vancouver have been scheming
to burglarize all tho houses in New
Westminster and sell their plunder in
the pawn shops of their adopted city.
There were two gangs, one of which wos
to do all the robbing, whilo the other
one wnB to do all the selling. Accordingly, Saturday was chosen ns the day
on which to begin operations, nnd the
morning train on that day brought tlie
young rascals, who put up at the Occidental Hotel on Columbia and Begbie
streets. All went well until some one
about the apartments of the hotel up
stairs observed one of the boys seek
shelter under a bed in a rather 'accelerated manner, and, thinking all was not
right went to summon someone to assist in capturing the robber, when, in
the meantime the boy rushed to the
window, jumped a distance of some 15
feet to the balcony below, climbing
down one of the posts to the street and
tho two made good their escape to tho
terminal city, by tho road. Upon information being laid, Chief of Police Pearco
took a trip to Vancouver yesterday, and with the aid of
one of the polico of that city
captured Arthur Davie, William Davie
and Ed. Chapman, ranging in ages from
11 to 13 years, and nfter some difficulty
brought the lads to this City last evening, lodging them in the Station, thus
preventing them from attempting any
moro robberies in this City for at least a
■time. The articles found in their possession, taken from the Occidental, were
a gold scarf pin, a quilt, a post office
bank book, a looking glass and several
other articles of more or less value. All
three boyB are well known to the Van
couver polico, and one of them, William
Davio, was flogged buta short time ago by
order of the court at Vancouver for having been one of the participants in a
burglary case in that city.

A gentleman living in the upper part
of tho city says that the two ornamental
knobs or bulls nt his garden gate were

reason to surmise, maliciously, and by
means of a club or other heavy instrument, There seems to be a gang of
these vamlals about town just now, and
if tho police desire the best thanks of
tho community they will lay hands on
tho vagabonds at an oarly date. The
scoundrels do not confine their devastat-
ing attentions to garden gates, however,

boon torn from cherry, apple and pear
