Southern Justice.
Columbia, BjS/., May 7.—Tbe inquest
over the body of Willie Lenphant, the
negro who-wns lynched at Lexington on
Monday, was held to-day. The testimony of Sheriff Drafts and his wife went
to show that live citizens of Lexington,
ninon^ others, were implicated iu the
lynching, aud that one of them led the
mob. After retiring for fifteen minutes
. the jury returned the startling verdict
i that Lenphant cai'ne to Ids death by gun
•shot wounds at the hands of parties unknown. Solicitor Nelson, whocondncted
the examination of the witnesses, was
completely thunderstruck nt thia verdict,
in wnich testimony wns utterly disregarded. Ho will place the matter before
the grand jury and sift it to tho boltom.
Governor Richardson has made public
the affidavits upon which he hud respited
Lenphant. One of the affidavits is made
by United States Deputy Marshal
Miller, in which he alleges tbat "after
the trial nnd conviction of the said
Willie Leaphnnt, said Charlie Cannon,
brother of Miss Rosa Cannon, stated to
deponent in the presence of other witnesses, thnt he did not believe Willie
Leaphnnt raped his sister, nud that lie
believed that she had been persuaded
by certain persons to state tbat tho
negro hnd committed a rape in order to
convict him." Charlie Cannon also
makes an affidavit that his sister "told
him privately that she was not raped or
injured." There aro also two letters
from Miss Cannon to her mother in
which she says, "He nevor hurt me any,
only my throat is a little sore. lie
nevor tried to do anything except to
keep me from hollering."

The Dreaded Npr_k.ii.
Stockton, Cala., May 7.—Late last
night a number of men were sent here'
from Union Island to get a lot of shovels
and wheelbarrows which are to be used
in strengthening the levees. The water
is now within three and a half inches of
the highest point ever readied at tho
island. If the weather becomes warmer
and raises the Sacramento river so as
to increase the back water, Union Island will be in great danger. This is
tlie dreaded season when snows are
melting.	
Another Partite Lino.
San Fhancisco, May 7.-—'the Chronicle
commenting on the report from Boston
that the Atcheson road is about to build
to this city, says: "The Atcheson road
is better situated than any other transcontinental line to complete its system
to this city, inasmuch aa. the only gap
to he filled is that between Mojave und
Sau Francisco, which is neither long
nor difficult. The enterprise shown by
that company in building and operating
a road in Southern California is a favorable indication, and it certainly looks ns
though we might at least have one competing road."
The Expected   Denial.
Nkw York, May 7.—James Wukely,
the well-known sporting man, stated
last night that Phil. Dwyer has told him
that the recent published statement
that Dwyer would put up any amount
up to $50,000 on Corbett in a tight with
Sullivan, waa absolutely false, and that
ho had said nothing of the kind. Wukely thinks well of Joe McAuliffc, and
thinks he would stand a bettor show
against Sullivan than any of the other
heavy weights would.
Would Select America.
Nkw Yobk, May 7.—The Herald correspondent cables from Itoine: I am iu
a position to say upon authority, that
when the Pope considered the question
of abandoning Rome about a yeur ago
he declared that if ho had his choice he
would select America as his home.
Hallway BxteiiHlon.
Boston, May 7.—It has transpired that
the recent visit of President. Mnnvcll, of
the Atcheson, Topeka A Snntn Fo Railway, to California, combined business
with pleasure, and the report is current
that tho Atcheson company has determined to extend the Atlantic and Pacific, controlled by it, to Sun Frnncisco at
a vory early day.
Tho Death Penalty.
Ai.uany, May 7.—The assembly bill
for the abolition of the death penalty
was considered in tlio Senate Judiciary
Committee this afternoon, and the
motion to table it Indefinitely wns passed by a vote of seven to two.
A   Sohoiil Mutiny.
HAititisuvito, P., May 7.—The lack of
discipline, nnd poor'management, nt
the White Hill soldiers' orphan school,
thirteen miles south of this city, led to
a severe rebellion ou the part of the
scholars. A boy named Wolfe took offense nt Principal Kline who had punished his sweetheart, also a scholar, and he
assaulted Kline. When Manager
Thomas interfered, Wolfe threatened to
stab him. This led to Wolfe's arrest
and incarceration iu Carlisle jail, from
which he wus released ou bail to-day.
Kline was arrested on the counter charge
of assault, but was at once bailed out.
Soon afte r a crowd of boys rebelled, on
the ground that they were not given
sufficient liberty, and they completely
demoralized tho school. Laat Thursday night four boys led by a bad youth
named Lippey, revolted during prayers.
When tho hymn was started thoy refused to sing. When Manager Thomas
prayed, both boys and girls stamped
their feet. Tho girls were ordered to
their rooms, nnd white they were going
out the boys bombarded the teachers
with heavy inkstands cutting ono on
tlio temple and inflicting other injuries.
The same night four of the boys fell
upon a male teacher and assaulted him.
Lippey nnd his three pals wore
locked up and on Saturday Governor
Beaver and Captain Boyor went to the
school to investigate. The four prisoners
wero defiant and impudent and encouraged the boys from their window to acts
of Insubordination. Inspector Grier
wbb sent for nnd nrrived last Sunday
morning, going direct to the school, but
he could do nothing with the ringleaders
who refused to be penitent and defied
him. Thoy wero put ou broad and
water diet and to-day Inspector Grier
made another visit. He found the boys
in a better frame of mind, and released
them. There is no complaint of food,
clothing or attendance. The breaking
up of the school is probable,
American Imanlty.
Richmond, May 7.—The • Lee statue
has been put in parts on four trucks
which will be drawn through the streets
to-morrow. Four ropes, each 200 feet
long, are attached to each truck. One
of them will bo grasped -by veterans,
another by sons of veterans, next by
simple citizens and the other by ladies.
The statue will thus be hnulea to the
Bite. For one of the boxes holding the
statue $250 has been offered. Relic
hunters have been incessantly trying to
cut off pieces of them at tlie depot.
They may be made into a set of furniture which will be auctioned off. At
five o'clock to-morrow .evening the
statue will be moved to the monument
pedestal. It will take fourteen days to
place the statue on the monument.
The horse and rider are in eight pieces,
and the parts will lie. riveted together
after they are placed on the pedestal.
Troops will be here from all parts of the
south at unveiling. It is estimated that
the military procession on the 29th will
be the lnrgest seen in the south since
Sherman's march through it.
In Dread of l'olmiMlng.
Shanghai, May 7.—The Emperor is
in constant dread of assassination by
poison. Kvery article of food is tasted
by a courtier before he touches it. It
wns rumored a few weeks ago that he
was dead, aud much excitement prevailed. There wns some ground for tho
rumor. A cup of white rose tea provided for-the Emperor was tasted by
his favorite courtier, the sou of a Mnn-
churian military officer, und a few hours
afterwards tho boy died in dreadful agony,
and with all the symptoms of poisoning. The Emperor's terror wub increased a hundredfold by the incident,
and he "foil sick, probably from' sheer
fright.

The Hon. Mr. Bellerose moved, seconded by the Hon. Mr. Armand, that J.
G. Moylan, Esquire, Inspector of Penitentiaries, be summoned to the bar of
this House for examination in reference
to certain statements reflecting ou an
honorable member of the Senate (Hon.

the Honorable the Minister of Justice
for the year 1889, in regard to the British

September of that year (1889).
The Honorable Mr. Abbott communicated to the House the following letter:
Daly Avenue, April 22nd, '90.
Dkak Mb. Auhott.—It was with great
surprise I heard, this morning, that tho
Honorable Senator Mclnnes had taken
strong exception to some statements 1
made iu my last report to my minister,
respecting certain ehnrjjes against the
management of tho British Columbia
Penitentiary. I wish to disclaim as
emphatically as I can all idea of reflecting in such report upon the Honorable
Senator's action, or of referring to him
disrespectfully in any way. I had no
such intention, and 1 deeply regret that
the language I used has been construed
as applicable to him, a construction
which I never contemplated, which 1
assure you I never intended and which I
now repudiate and deny.
Yours very truly,
Jas. G. Movlan.
Thereupon, the Honorable Mr. Bolle-
rose, with leave of the House, withdraw
Ids motion.
On Friday tho "George F. Smith Relief Bill" received its third reading, and

the way to guaranteed and exceedingly
profitable use for small savings, but unlike a savings bank it returns to the persistent accumulations not a small stipulated annual interest, but a return iu
every instance many times greater than
the richest aud most prosperous savings
bank can do upon invested savings.
Like the endowjneut branch of au insurance company it offers to return to the
investor nt tho expiration of a given
number of years a certain stipulated sum
of money, but unlike the insuranco company, does not make tho basis of its
business the hazard of human lives,
aud at the termination of the period the
return will be greater, and infinitely
cheaper. Tho company issue bonds for
$100 aud upwards, and undertakes agencies of every description Biich ns capitalizing companies, conversion of securities, management of estates, etc.
Tlie trouble between members of the
Senate and Mr. Movlan, Inspector of
Penitentiaries, has been settled. Among
the notices of motion set for reading
wero two in reference to Mr. Moylan,
.but before these were renchod Hon.
Mr. Abbott rose and read a letter addressed to him bv Mr. Moylan, in which
the latter stated it was with great surprise ho heard that Hon. Mr. Mclnnes
had taken strong exception to certain
statements mude in the inspector's last
report to tho Minister respecting cortnin
charges against the management of the
British Columbia Penitentiary. He
wished to disclaim all idea of reflecting
upon the Hon. Senator's notion, or of
referring to him disrespectfully  in any
way, and deeply regretted that tho language he used had been construed as applicable to the Senator, etc. With this
the matter was allowed to drop.

. BniroRCoMfNUiAXi-iJkarSir: Having
gone over the nddrcHH of Mr. Townsend
I fail to see that anything ho has said
would lead one to think that he waa
going to change the common order of
things much, and I will, Mr. Editor,
with your kind permission, just call
attention to one or two points in his
epilogue. He, Mr. T., very rightly calls
attention to the dearness and scarcity
of the meat and food supply, but very
wrongly attributes the cause to the
National Policy and lo our farmers, and
entirely fails to see that the whole and
sole blame should be laid at the door of
our loose system of land laws. And to
the- land sharks that are grabbing up
their tens of thousands of acreB, wnilst
large families seeking land to settle on
arc turned from us und forced to settle
elsewhere. This is another good plank
for the workingman's platform, and I
hope that they will take a note of it,
Immigration, Mr. T. next tells us, is
coming in fast enough; and, under existing circumstances, wo are forced to say
"Amen"; but I ask the voters to Bay
how long is this wretched and disgraceful order of things to be tolerated? for it
is for them to decide this question at
the polls. I am at the present moment
trying to induce the Federal Government to.assist iu opening up one of the
best, if not tbe very best, stretches of
farming and grazing coiintrv that there
is to be found in B. C, after vain attempts tu induce the Provincial Government to do bo. This District alono could
accommodate forty thousand settlers,
who would in a short time own happy
homes, raise more supplies than we
need, and help to defray the expenses of
Government besides. Our fishing interests is another question for the voters to
take note of, and to say, if we are te
conserve for tho benefit of Uncle Sam's
sealionsand seals, which each devour and
destroy eight hundred pounds of fish
per day, or will it be allowed to go
towards cheapening the food that
Mr. T. tells us ie so dear and scarce?
And would It not lie letter, under existing circumstances, instead of pitting
our farmers, who do help to pay the
taxes of the country, against outsiders
who do not, as Mr. T. suggests, to increase the number of our fish hatcheries,
aud to allow of a more liberal catch?
"The gods help those who help themselves." If so, now is the time for the
voterB to come to the front and say what
they want] and what they must have, or
forever hang their heads.
"Our doubts arc traitors,
And innkc us lose thu cowl we oft might win,
Hy renrliitf to nttempt."
Yours truly,

NOTES FROM YALE.
(Prom ii -.pedal Corrcsi-omlcat.)
During the past seven days the Fraser
has risen about thirty feet at Yale, and
the concentrated torrent of accumulating .mountain streams increases day by
dav and hour by hour as the snows on
the summit of the peaks melt in the
sunshine and find their several ways,
first in tiny rivulets and then in boiling,
surging volumes of water, dashing and
beating over rocks and boulders and
through ravines, with a mad and foaming fury. Thirty feet in one short week,
and the waters have to come in greater
force yet until the driftwood is replaced
by giant trees, tossed hither and thither
down the mountain sides, until one by
one they are dashed over some cataract
to disappear from human eyes only to
be seen again gliding swiftly and silently in the current of the stream miles
nearer the gulf. Tho high water prospect for this summer is not encouraging
to those who live on Eraser's banks,
and in a very short lime, if only the
brilliant weather continues, we may expect the trifling inconvenience incident
to swollen waters fed by mountain
snows.
Yale, tho " Sleepy Hollow" of British
Columbia, is indulging in a little harmless excitement with the hope of it boom
later on. The flats opposite the 'town
are to be taken in hand by the Eraser
River Gold Gravels Syndicate and if
everything turns up trumps, why, Yale
will hold her own again, laugh at Victoria, snap her lingers in the face of
Vancouver and smile derision at the
Royal City. Mr. Oliver, the resident
engineer of the company, had his machinery on a s|H.cially constructed raft
all ready and waiting to be towed across
the stream by the Delaware, whose advent was being anxiously looked for by
the whole populntian, including the
school children, who were to tako a half.
holiday in ordor to do honor to so momentous nn event as the arrival of this
fine rivor boat, By this time wo suppose tho fun is all over as tho Delaware
wns hoped for yesterday afternoon.
The weather just now at Yale is beyond description, it is a perfect Klysiaii
summer bottled up in an amphitheatre,
of snow-capped mountains. The numberless orchards vie with the eternal
showb iu purity of their blossoms, and a
big fruit harvest may reasonably be
hoped for. Tho Government agent, Mr.
Dodd, has great hopes of a prosperous
year, and Mr. Oliver is very sanguine
about the Gold GravelB Syndicate's operations. Although Yule 'has not now a
vory large adult population, numerous
boys and girls scorn to grow rosy and
thrive iu the sunlight and pure air of
the beautiful little townsite.
Upon May day in glorious weather un
old and respected pioneer of the Province, Mr. Oppcnhehn, was laid to rest
in the graveyard.   Once opulent and a
firospcrous resident, he had seen Yale
u the height of prosperity, and in his
old age when "Ichnboa" might have been
inscribed over her desolato houses, he
still found that "harvest of aquietoye,"
contentment, beneath the shadows of
her everlasting hills. Everybody in the
little placo turned out to assist in honoring the solemn occasion by his "presence, and the school was closed, Mr.
Onpctiheiin being, during his life, one
of the trustees. Tlio fact that "tho old
order ehangcth, giving place.to tho new,"
was forcibly realised whon tho sad Intelligence of the decease of Uriah Nelson
reached Yale, where his memory will
long remain green.
The fruit growers expect that the present will be one of the most successful
yeara ever witnessed in Westminster,
The blossoms on the trees nt present are
splendid siiceimens and in every resjicct
warrant tbe expectation that this year's
fruit harvest will be phenomenal.

WEDNESDAY  EVENING, MAY  7.  1890.
NINE HOURS A DAY.
Tub strike of the carpenters for nine
hours as a day's labor, instead of ten,
which began this week, has practically
and happily ended to-day, tho contractors having, with one or two exceptions
(and they are expected to como in)
signed au agreement establishing nine
hourB as a day's work for nil carpenters
under their control. It is a matter for
congratulation that the strike has been
conducted throughout in such nn orderly
manner, aud that its termination has
been so speedy and on tho whole satisfactory, both to tho contractors and the
carpenters; for nny prolonged difficulty
at such a time as the present, when
building operations are so extensive,
nnd a grent deal of work under way as
well as projected, could not but have
been serious in its consequences to all
concerned. It would seem that but for
some slight misunderstandings between
the carpenters aud a number of the
contractors, that the strike would have
been confined to comparatively a few
as the majority of the contractors were
perfectly agreeable to continue on the
nine-hour basis established a little over
a month ago, but naturally desired thnt
it should be universal, as they could not
he expected to compete with contractors
who were insisting that their men
Bhould work ten hours a day. The settlement thnt 1ms now been arrived at as
a result of the strike, whereby all the
contrnctorB agree to maintain the nine-
hour Bystem, is just and satisfactory to
the men and fair to all the contractors,
and, ns we have intimated, has been secured with very little friction, unpleasantness, or loss of time. "All's well
that ends well" is a truism that must
be taken with some modification, but
when there is nothing regretable in the
means or the circumstances contributory to a satisfactory result, the grounds
for congratulation are clear and undoubted. Wo take it to be, abstractly,
a matter for satisfaction, and an indication of social, moral, and economic progress, that the nine-hour movement is
winning its way, and the approval, at
the same lime, of employers as well ns
employed.
ADULTERATED TRUTH.
Oua morning cotemporary in this City
appears to be a little mixed about
bridge-ferry matters, or perhaps it is
purposely blind. Because tho Council
lias wisely decided to lose no more time
about taking the necessary steps to put
on a proper ferry between this City and
the south side of tho river, Ihe paper in
question makes the rash aud notoriously
untrue statement that the majority
the Council, whom our cotemporary is
pleased to designate as "Mayor Brown
" and his friends," has "determined
" against a bridge atany hazard." How
docs this statement look iu face of the
fact that the " Railway Loan Appropria-
" tion By-Law," lately introduced and
supported by "Mayor Brown and his
" friends" (to borrow the expression)
provides for an expenditure of $1,500 to
make surveys and soundings of the rivor
solely with a view tea bridge? Is not
that the wisest, the most practical, the
most judicious step possible towards the
undertaking of building a bridge by the
City? Our cotemporary's unreasoning
aud unfair spirit ou this question is further manifested in its charge against the
Mayor of quibbling. Yesterday it found
fault with the Mayor and "thoso who
" act with him" for not submitting Mr.
Balfour's "plans lo competent authority,
To-day tho same paper picks upon
the least part of the Mayor's answer
(given in a communication in this paper
yesterday), viz., "that Mr, Balfour has
" not as yet laid any plans before the
" Council, nor nre any such plans in
" existence," nnd accuses the Mayor of
quibbling for stating a plain aud relevant fact. Our cotemporary is very
plainly quibbling Itself, or it would have
taken up the other very Important question suggested in the Mayor's communication referred to, to the following effect,
and nearly in the following words:
Would competent iwople pronounce on
the mortis of abridge scheme without
having trustworthy information ns to
the nature of the river bottom? It is
this, among other trustworthy, definite
and necessary information, that tho
" Mayor and his friends," wisely, acting
in tho City'B behalf, propose to secure
in tho first place, instead of rushing
blindly and unequipped into so extensive and serious an undertaking as
bridging the Frnser at this point; and
we believe that every thoughtful and
unprejudiced man, after giving the subject duo consideration, will commend
nnd endorse their notion, and the ultimate result will undoubtedly justify it.
BMOKINO AND THE VOICE.
Ln tho New Review, Sir Morcll Mackenzie, tho celebrated specialist regarding the throat, gives his viows as to tho
effect of smoking on the voice. The eminent physician writes with nn nuthority
not alone begotten of extensive medical
practice, but, also, fortified with observations which a very large social acquaintance with vocalists of all grades
lias enabled him to acquire.
Hir Morell confesses nt the outset that
)io has met vocalists who considered
their voices improved with tho uso of
tobacco, hut these nre decidedly in the
minority, or, lo uso his own expressive
words, "tho vast majority think it is
(' more or less injured by smoking,
Pmoklng, even when it leaves no visible
marks of its action, impairs the precision of muscular movement necessary for perfect production of
tho voice. The result Is usually
known    by    the    convenient    term

nervousness; the pulse becomes flurried
and the muscles more or less relaxed
and unsteady. This is why smoking is
strictly forbidden to athletes when training. Even if the nicotine does no harm
to the nervous system, amoke may very
likely irritate the lining membrane of
the throat and windpipe. The use of
tobacco is apt to cause " patches of con-
" gestion" to affect the upper part of
the throat nnd " occasionally the vocal
" cords themselves."
A most entertaining and instructive
article is summed up with the expression of the belief that smoking in moderation is not injurious, whilst to many
tobacco acts as a useful nerve sedative,
though, on the other hand.if indulged in
to excess the habit of smoking is invariably in j iirious. Smoking should only be
indulged in after a substantial meal,
and in the case of an actor or singer, the
smoke should be taken after and not
before the use of the voice. A mild
Havanna cigar, or a cool tobacco in a
long stemmed pipe, are preferable, if
tobacco cannot be done without, whilst
the cigarette, if used at all, can only be
smoked with safety through a clean
holder. Lastly, pipe, cigar or cigarette
should never be smoked to the " bitter
" and, it may be added, rank and oily
" end."

at the undermentioned Prices, the following
Properties on terms to suit.
SAPPERTON.
Lots in the Sub-Division of Lot 2,
Suburban Block 4, from $200 per lot.
Those lots are mostly cleared, and are very sightly, commanding an unsurpassed view of the Fraser River in one direction, and Queen's Park and the upper portion of the City in the
other. This property is only about one quarter of a mile from
the Bmnetto Mills, and is the best locality in Sapperton either for
residence or speculation.
Western Addition.
A few blocks and lots in the Western Addition to the City of New Westminster, Sub-Division of Lot 172, formerly the White Estate!
This sub-division, consisting of 000 lots, was placed upon the
market by us a short time ago, and so eager were purchasers to
buy that the entire 600 lots wero sold out within one month. We
are now offering the above property at slightly advanced rates on
behalf of former purchasers. Those who missed tho chance of
buying at first pricos havo yet an opportunity of investing at
prices that cannot fail to yield a good profit. Wo believe that
this is the best speculative property in the City of New Westmiti
ster.
SURREY.
5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Municipality of Surrey, midway between the
Cities of New Westminster, B.C., and
Blaine, Wash., at from $30 to $40 per
acre.
This property is situated on the Hall's Prairie road, near the
junction of the Langley Road, the Yale Road, and the Clover
Valley Road, within 500 yards of the proposed station of the New
Westminster Southern Railway. The land is high and dry, and
tho soil is first-class. Surrey is ono of the most prosperous sections of the District of New Westminster, and is at present enjoy,
ing quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this property will get the value of their money in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at tho same time promises an excollent
field for speculation.
NORTH  ARM.
145 acres in Lot 155, near the North Arm Road,
about 21-2 miles -west of the New Westminster City
Post-office, at $150 per aore.
This is fine fertile soil, chiefly prairie, und lies woll. It
has become u maxim that cities grow westward, and Now Westminster is proving no exception to the rulo. City lots west of
Edinburgh Streot, along tho North Arm road, have doubled in
valuo in less than a year, whilo aero tracts havo, in the samo
time, in some instances more than trebled. Whon tho proposed
extension of Columbia Stroet to tho Westerly City Boundary is
completed, tho North Arm will become the host suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently oxpected by many that
the route of tho Electric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
section. Our shrowdest speculators are realizing tho possibilities
of this portion of tho City, and the many sales of aero property
in the vicinity recently, indicate that land in tho direction of the
North Arm is looked upon as ono of the best places for investment in the District.   Pricos are bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of
Oity and Suburban Property, at moderate prioes and
on fevorable terms, of whioh we invite examination.

New Pilot Service Boat.
" She's being built to be the fastest
craft round here." Thia was said of the
pilot boat which Mr. J. H. Mair is building for Capt. Urquliart, to be used in
the pilot service in connection with the
China boats. A handsome cutter rigged
boat she will be, clean built, substantially put together, moulded dimensions
50 feet over all, 12 feet beam, and &}_
feet deep, and made out of the longest
lance of fir procurable on Vancouver
Island. Besides this, she will be copper
fastened throughout, and covered outside from keel to deep draught with
Munse's metal, n great deal of teak wood
will be used in tbe deck fittings; this is
not often done, nnd will be very costly
us well as good looking. The" interior
will comprise n saloon 25 feet long, and
a large cabin with a depth of seven and
a half feet, aud a cook and mess room.
Along with this there will be a large
hold capacity. The estimate for building alone is figured at $2,500, but after
. tins comes the decorative part, the fittings, sails and general furnishings,
which will about double the above sum.
The sails, bits, cabins, stairs and other
parts will be brass mountedund elegantly furnished. Gilding will figure prominently and will add considerably to
the rich appearance of the boat. None
but the latest appliances will be used
throughout, from ropes lo steering apparatus. Mr. .leiine has iu hand the
task of supplying hor rigging. It is
expected that she will lie launched early
in June, if not, about the end of May.
She Ib to bear tho good old Scottish
name "Claymore," and, judging from
the Hues upon which she is built, she
will, when in the water, bo just as sharp
as her steel namesake.—Colonist.

A well-known and popular gentleman
met with rather au unpleasant, if somewhat comical, adventure yesterday. Accompanied hy another gentleman, he

away from tho pile ho was looking at
and bumped violently agahwt another

deep just there. Tho unlucky canoeist
was rescued without further mishap.

small streams emptying into the Fraser.
Much snow still remains iu tbe gorges
of the Pitt mountains, and no doubt the
present hot weather will dislodge it
suddenly, and thus-add to the already
high state of the water. No news has
been received that Pitt Meadows are
mbmerged, but that event cannot be
far off. Opposite the Brunette sawmills
the river presents an interesting sight
as it sweeps round the bend and is
broken up into tossing waves. At the
present time that locality is no place for
small boats, although the Indians in
their light canoes do not seem to mind
it at all. Many an old stump that has
braved the rush of the current for years
will succumb this time and go with the
majority to the Gulf of Georgia.

Abbott says ho must respectfully submit, that it is utterly Impossible for the

and aa regards the rate of speed at which
these trains run through the town, most
imperative instructions havo been issued that such rate shall not exceed
four miles per hour.

Goodwin Ford, superintendent of the

night. He reports a very large increase
in the business from this end of the line.
Vancouver shows a considerable increase, Victoria about 30 per cent.,
while New Westminster business has
increased over one hundred per cent.
This is principally due to the large shipments of fresh salmon from the Fraser
to Now York and other eastern markets.
The spring salmon are a very tine fish
and much earlier than the Saguenay
salmon, and thus have control of the

thai a vory largo express business will

The City Found.
The civic stockyards are being rapidly
filled with stray animals, and the prospects now are that they will soon con
tain tbe finest selections of all grades of
horses nnd cattle qn the continent. In
the two days, ending last night since
the pound wub formerly opened for the
reception of friendless and homeless
animals no less than B horses and 4 cows
have sought, refuge and three square
meals per day within the hospitable enclosure. Three of the cows have since
been ransomed, but the honea have not
been called for. Pound-keeper Murray
was on the warpath again to-day, and
added a few more tramp animals to the
list. It ia wonderful how quickly the
streets havo been rid of marauding cattle since the hy-law waB put in force,
and portions of the city thnt looked like
a well stocked pasture a week ago are
now clear of their unwelcome occupants.

lloautif.il  music
Those citizens who indulge in midnight lucubrations and read hard, on into tho early hours, will learn with puro
delight that it is becoming the fashion
for tho -steamboats to blow blasts ou
their whistles in notes of twenty seconds
duration each, at precisely five o'clock
iu the morning nnd keep the concert up
until about 7:30 or so. The noise is excruciating enough to wake the dead,
and, doubtless, assists many an invalid
in this City to an early grave. These
concerts will be continued^free of cbargo
until the City Council indicts some of
the managers as nuisances. One peculiarity of the .affair is that all the steamboats in the harbor join in the choniB
whether thoy are going out or not, just
to be sociable like, and it is darkly
rumored that somo of them actually get
up steam just for the pleasure of taking
a baud in the howl. The marine people
aud those misguided individuals who
rise early In   the  morning think it is
great fun.

The Strike Off.
After a strike lasting just one day and
a half the carpenters all returned to
work this morning with ihe exception
of the employees of two firms which
have not yet agreed to the conditions.
As was pointed out iu Monday's issue
only a vory few contractors took exception to the 0 hours day, and the remainder, of course, only wanted to bo placed
ou un cqunl footing with tho other firms,
no matter what that might ho. Tho
strike brought about the desired results,
aud now tho whole trouble may be considered definitely settled. The two
firms still holding out do not employ
many men, and whether or not tbey
sign the agreement is a matter of littlo
difference to tho brotherhood. How-
over, men taking employment from
these firms will not be allowed to work
afterwards on contracts whero members
of tho brotherhood are employed, and
thus it will be difficult for the dissenters
to obtain first-class workmen. The car-
pouters aro to be congratulated on the
success of tholr strike
The Lecture on ilapnii.
The entertainment last night iu Hot-
ring's Opera House was highly successful financially aud otherwise. There
wub a largo aud appreciative audience
f-resent in spite of the warm weather.
)r. Cocking gave a most interesting account of the land of the rising sun, its
people, scenery and climate. Tho customs and peculiarities of the Japanese
race wero cleverly portrayed, and by tbe
nul of about a hundred dissolving views
the audience were enabled to obtain an
excellent idea of how this interesting
people live In their own land. The
views of the famous mountains, Kubi
Yarns, the great cities of Tokio and
Kiota, with the Imperial palace in the
formor, were particularly good. Tho
pictures of the Buddhist temples, pagodas and idols, nnd the specimens of
magnificent carving in the temples,
elicited grent applause from the audience.
Tbo home-life of the Japanese was also
most interestingly displayed, and the
portraits of several young Japanese
uelles in full costume showed that the
women of this strange peoplo have a
beauty which if peculiar in itself, is by
no menus displeasing to Caucasian taste,
especially when the taste is twenty-five
or so and of the masculine gender. The
lecture closed with the singing of "God
Save the Queen," aud tho audience was
unanimous that the. entertainment waa
one of the best ever given here.

The Rushing River.
The state of the river to-day surpassed
anything seen this year. From nn early
hour this morning trees, logs, bushes,
small floating islands of tangled vegetation and green shrubs swept past tho city
lu nn endless procession. Borne of the
floating piles of debris wero nearly us
largo as some of the river tugs. One of
tho logs that wont past must have
measured about 1B0 foot long and many
others were well ovor a hundred feet in
length.. The speed of the current was
also much groator than the normal rate,
and the water was greatly discolored
nud covered with huge patches of foam.
Everything seems to indicate a very
radical clean out in all the creeks and
Laorosse Meeting.
A general meeting of the Westminster
Lacrosse Club was held last evening, and
was more largely attended than any
since organization this year. The Honorary President, Mayor Brown, the
President, Mr. James Leamy, and many
other officers of tho club were present.
After routine business had been disposed
of the selection of a field captain for tho
season was elected, that honor falling to
Mr, James Gow. The manner of choosing tbe team for championship matches
wbb adopted, and will doubtlessly work
to ti charm. Messrs. Steuart, McGregor,
Campbell and Cambridge wore chosen
n committee to revise the constitution,
and the Honorary President, Mayor
Brown, the President, Mr. Jas, Leamy,
nnd Messrs. J. Reid, T. J. Trapp and J.
(!. Juipios were elected a permanent
committee to deal with all matters of
importance relative to the welfare of
the club, and whose first duties, us requested liy tho meeting, was to wait on
employers and urge them to allow the
lacrosse players sufllcient off time to
attend regular practices; also to wait
upon tho Park Commissioners iu reference to the bad and dangerous condition
of the park grounds, and to mako an
effort to have them erect a bath house
on the premises, which the club
would agree to furnish. Tho meeting
adjourned to meet again on Tuesday
evening, 20th inst., when above committees will report. Many new members
were added to the roll.

-    Tim •'Times" Chair.
The eontcBt for the Victoria Times
easy chair, which was to decide who was
the most popular clergyman in Victoria,
was concluded a few days ago, much to
the pleasure of all decent people. The
chair wont to Rev. Percival Jenns, an
able and popular clergyman, rector of
St. James'church, hut that gentleman
very properly refused to have anything
to do with it, and sent it along to the
Royal Jubilee Hospital, where, no
doubt, it will be put to good use. The
contest was gotten up without consulting the wishes of the clergymen whose
names were ao impertinently thrust beforo the public in this cheap advertising scheme, for it waa nothing else, and
that of itself shows the spirit that animated the _TtH.es when It first conceived
the disreputable idea. Should the
Times institute another contest of this
kind it is to be hoped the persons selected will be of more public' notoriety
and less respectability than tbe unfortunate contestants in the last affair. At
any rate decent people should be allowed the privilege of exemption from notoriety of this kind. Easy chair contests, raffles and such bazaar devices
may bo journalism in the eyes of the
Times, hut to all reputable journals
these schemes are looked upon as disreputable innovations info an honorable
profession, and as such will be always
condemned. The snub given the Timet
by the Rev. Mr. Jenns, in his letter
donating the chair to the hospital, is
worthy of space. He says: "Nor do I
think that the proprietors of the said
nowapaper (the Times) have shown that
modesty, whioh we have a right to expect in high-class journalism, in pitting
tho clergy of the city to run one against
the other for the popular vote, us on the
24th inst., they will probably do with
the horses round Beacon Hill Park."
FRUIT GROWERS MEETING.
The Annual Meeting tube Held in Wcst-
1.1!nstor  thin Year.
The regular meeting of the British
Columbia Fruit Growers Association
was held at Maple Ridge yesterday and
to-day. Thero wero a largo number
of representatives present from all parts
of the District. After routine business
hud been disposed of a long discussion
ensued ou the moBt desirable manner
of packing, shipping and marketing
fruit, lt was finally decided to adopt
a uniform package, a'stock of which will
be held by the secrotary who will serve
them out to members of the association
on application.
It was decided tljat the annual meeting will he held in Now Westminster on
tho second Tuesday in August.
After the meeting adjourned last night
the ladies of Maple Ridge invited the
members to the school house whero a
magnificent spread was prepared. The
invitation wns accepted by all, and
thorough justice was done to the good
things; and to credit of the gucBts, be
it said they wero honest nnd unstuted
in their praise of tho ladies' skill, and
their kindness in providing tbe delightful supper. A programme of music and
songs followed the auppcr, after which
short speeches were made bv Messrs.
W. II, Ladner, M. P. P., J. C, Mc-
Lagan and others. Tbe gathering dispersed about midnight, everyone satisfied with the entertainment, aud convinced tbat more hospitable peoplo than

VOLUME VIII.
NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, MAY 7, 1890.
NUMBER 81.
TO THE ELEOTORS
 OF	
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of tlio near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused hy 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 ques*
tions which I consider will arise In the
near future for consideration.
I have been asked what I mean when
I announce myself as a Liberal-Conservative; I reply, "Tbat by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residence of over 80 years in this Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has had the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
tne liberal ideas, therefore I claim! am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact tbat party lines are not denned in
British Columbia as they aro iu the older
provinces, 1 consider that our representatives are not in duty bound to give a
througlrthiek-and-thin support. to nny
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 us 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 Turin, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
tbe 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 iu many cases the articles arc
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; iu
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles are brought from tbe States, although tbe duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; wo gin- not
raise enough to supply our wuiiTt., 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 tbe point during the last three months. If wo had
not received a good supply from California thero would have been a meat
famine; as it is we are now and have
been pavinjj 25 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, aud the same statu of
affairs is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for the last eleven years
our stock raisers are little bettor prepared to meet hard winters than they
were beforo, and to my mind tho only
ones who have reaped tbe 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 tbe
question,I would ad vocate"Rcciprocltv"
in many articles which are at present in the Tariff lists, as I think
it would be beneficial to both
countries, aud the working man would
not have to go down so deep into bis
pockets to buy what he needs to cat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
have a revenue to carry on the affairs of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more and get at tbe pockets of the
richer classes who can bettor afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of tlie late Mr. Chisholm, be was unable
to be in his placo this session, aud very
little during the previous one; so wo of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought beforo the notice of
the House. Had be (Mr. t Chisholm)
heen iu his seat, I do not think tho Postmaster-General would have been left so
much iu the dark concerning tho necessity of regular nu^l facilities on tbe
Lower Fraser as he seems to have been
when he proposed to cut off tbe mall
subsidy from that important route, and
there are other places in tho District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider should receive 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 be divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1600
miles of territory, and when the census
returns are in I think the necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such additional representation.
The protection of tho river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receive my earnest
attention, also tbe works for improving
the channel at the Sandheads, in view
of the expected increase in our shipping
interests.
I consider the Province should have
control over all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District in particular, I feol should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from tho mouth
of the Serpentine to Frnser River, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from the Fraser River to Port
Moody, which has often boen suggested
to me.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, and encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coming here fast
enough; I would not like to see a largo
influx pour in at once, as many would
bo disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
Thero are many other matters I Bhould
liko to touch upon, but it would make
this address too long. I hope to see as
many as possible before tlie election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon ns 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 iu the Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and havo
noted ita growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I havo the honor to be elected
I asBtire you I shall watch over the interests of this District fuitbfullv 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.
