(inrrlftmt fur Alaska.
Washington, May ID.—The matter of
establishing a military post in the interior of Alaska, and exploring the valley
of the Yukon River, has been before the
Houso committee on military affairs for
some timo in the form of a bill introduced by Representative E. B. Taylor,
of Ohio, appropriating $(10,000 for that
purpose. The bill provides that a military post shall be established near the
junction of the Tananah and Yukon
Rivers. Somo weeks ago Lieut. Ken-
nen, of tho army, had a talk with the
members of the sub-committee in charge
of the bill, and he expressed himself in
its favor. Then the committee sent the
hill to the secretary of war with the ro-
questthat be give his opinion on theadr
visability and necessity of its passage.
Tlie secretary had the matter investigated and tbe officer whom he charged
with this duty submitted an adverse report which the secretary signed and sent
to the committee. . Chairman Cutcheon
and other members of the sub-committee were not satisfied that the secretary
had given tho matter the consideration
that it deserved, and they forthwith returned both the bill and* report with a
request for further investigation, and
thero the matter stands to-day. The
members of the committee on military
affairs, who have looked into the subject, consider the establishment of tho
post and exploration of the valley a
great and important project, and they
will mako overy effort to bring the bill
to a speedy passage.

Lima, Ohio, May 17.—James Maguire,
a rich resident of thiB city, was nicely
cheated out of $5,000 by two well-dressed
strangers yesterday. One of the strait
gorg protended to be a bank cashier and
tho other to be very drunk. The drunken man showed Maguire $20,000 in hills
and Maguire aud the alleged cashier at
once tried to coax him to put it into a
bank. The man consented, providing
that the cashier and Maguire would each
put $5,000 in the samo bank nt the same
timo. To humor him, Maguire and the
other stranger consented and tlie money
was pint iu a tin box, and Maguire took
it to the bank to deposit, The tin box,
of course, was empty and the two strangers absconded with the other tin box
nnd the cash.
were seen stealing away from the
grounds after the firing took place. The
police, it is suid, have not tried to find
out the offenders and no further particulars are at. present obtainable. It appears
that Mrs. Craft was engaged to U S.
Marshal Weeks, who lives here, and
that she is on his bond. Thia, says the
marshal, is the cause for the outrage, although ho will not say why ho thinks so.
Mrs. Craft is living alono with her uncle,
John Bradley, aged 34, who is a cousin
of Associate Justice Bradley, and two
servants. The marshal left on the first
train for Tallahassee to-night, and says
that some one will bo hurt up thore if
this thing keeps on.
Getting Alarmed.
Sax Fbancisco, May 17.—The Examiner to-day says: It is"reported that the
San Diego people intend to denote $50,-
000 originally subscribed as a bonus to
the new railroad,,to the establishment
of linos of steamers to Japan, China and
Australia. Meanwhile, what is San
Francisco doing? Vancouver, Tacoma,
Seattle, Portland and San Diego are all
reaching out for our trans-Pacific trade,
and how much effort are we making to
retain it? We are depending on Congress to subsidise /jitr monthly line
to Australia.. What if Congress should
suddenly discovor that alt tho money
iu the Treasury had been spent
on pensions, or what if it should ask the
United States why our ships should Ire
subsidised at the national expense,
when other cities wore willing to subsidise thoir own? Considering tho fact
that San Francisco has three times 'the
mpulation and wealth of Vancouver.
'ortland, Tacoma aud San Diego combined, the question might be an embarrassing one to answer. Whatever the
Government may or may not do, our
merchants ought to insure' the maintenance of a .nut-class weekly steamer service between this port and the Australian colonies.
CORRESPONDENCE.
MB. SINCLAIR'S PLATFORM*
EoiToit Coi.ii.mi. ian—Sir: In Saturday
ovening'B issue of your papor you,take
occasion to indulge in an unfair nud misleading criticism of my address to the
electors of New Westminster District.
You therein state that I make uo mention of my political views on the nil
absorbing question. I think the intelligent electors of the district will reach a
lifferent conclusion whon they read my
promise to contend for their " political
rights," aud again when declaring my
political principles, I givo ',' equal
rights" the .first place. What more
would you have? I believe thoso whom
I seek the honor of representing will be
perfectly satisfied with equal political
rights with the rest of the Province, for
such I am prepared to contend firmly
and consistently, but not with throat
aud bluster; such weapons I leavo to
those having moro faith in their efficiency. Requesting space for this explanation iu your next issue.
Yours, etc.,
Marshall Sinclair.

London, May 10.—Mr, Jepbson'shook,

after the publication of Mr, Stanley's
great work, is of absorbing interest.
•Jephson is the master of an elegant and
graphic style, and his nine months' residence with Emin Pasha provided him
with abundance of material for pictures

highest terms of Emin, his character
aud relations with his worthy following,
Mr. Jephson received a very handsomo
offer from the London Times for the
manuscript of the book to he published
as a series of articles, but.ho preferred
that it should be kept perfectly fresh for
the public in hook form.
The Correct Tip.
London, May 10.—Surefoot is still a
Btrong favorite for the Derby. The
bookmakers are positively afraid to lay
prices against the horse, in consequence
of which the best odds are 7 to 4. The
Duke of Westminster's Sainforer has
been hacked firmly during the week nnd
now stands six to one, while Leopold
Rothchild's Lenard is knocked down to
twenty to one. For the Manchester
City, May 30, Naaitas is a good favorite at five to one. Tho other horses
are backed for tbe same race is a kind
of fitful fashion. The best outside
chance of winning is thought to be possessed by the Duke of Beaufort's Reiue-
d'or, who won tho city and suburban
handicap and is now backed by tbe public at 25 to 1.

tlio reporter about a certain Ontario lodge
of tho noble order which had made itself remarkable by its Grit proclivities,
but this was tlie only lodge of the order
that was so characterized. Tho order is
solely and puroly national, Scoto-Can-
adhui, aud Ib a benefit society of the
best kind. In Ontario, Nova Scotia,
New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island the order is immensely powerfuls
and the gatherings of the various lodge,
at the grand summer camps aro sights
to be remembered. Mr. McPherson
will soon bo out ou the warpath after

may bo looked for at no distant date.

A New Salmon Oan,
V. Cook, of the canning flnn of M.&V.
Cook, Clinton, Or., ft in Victoria. In
conversation, Mr. Cook stated that an
outside estimate of tlio Columbia river
jack for tho present year is 250,000 cases.
Jeveral years ago there wero thirty-eight
canneries on the lower Columbia. Of
thoso many have ceasod business, and
this season only thirteen canneries were
packing. Thero had been considerable
delay in starting ou account of the strike
of the fishermen, aud his firm had decided not to pack this year. Fishermen
were now getting ono dollar per fish,
which were never more plentiful than at
present. On account of the few canneries, fishermen were unable to dispose of
the llsh caught, though the price was
still kept up,
Mr. Cook's visit to Victoria is for the
purpose of introducing a patent can,
which is now being used on the Columbia river. The patent iB a Fronch one,
the right for the coast having been purchased by the Franco-American Patent
Can Opening Company of Oregon, in
which Mr. Cook is interested. Tlie contrivance !b a simple, but most effective
one. In making the body of the can, a
strip one-eighth of an inch wide is raiaod
around the can, tho sides of this slip
being slightly scored. A half-inch oltho
strip project's outside when the can ia
complete, but does not interforo with its
quality in any way. Tlte fish is packed
in the ordinary way, and the tin sealed
and labeled. On the top of each can is
placed a plain key having au aperture
in tlie centre of the Bhank, and hold in
place by a sticker label. When it is
desired to open the can, the key is taken,
the end of the raised strip ia placed in
tlie aperature and the atrip Ib cut from
tho can taking tho top completely off,
and permitting the emptying of its contents in good shape. Tlie device is such
a convenient one that it will, of necessity,
come into general use. It does nway
with very unpleasant work with a can-
opener, jack-knife, or moat-axe. Now,
when a house-wifo wants to open a can
of fish, fruit or vegetables, it is with
great trouble and danger to the hands,
and when the feat is accomplished the
can has a jagged edge. Witli the key-
can, in half a minute, it la possible to
take off the top of the can and havo the
contentd emptied. British Columbia
canners have established a high reputation for their goods, and will undoubtedly
take advantage of the key-can bo that
they may also possess tliis excellent
method of presenting their goods to the
publicf-Cotonia*.

London, May 10.—The Irish members
of Parliament have raised a subscription
among themselves for the purchase of a
wedding present for Mr. William O'Brien
on hia approaching marriage with Mine.
Kaafelovitch. The wedding will take
place next month. M. Kaatelovitch is
not, as has been said, a Greek financier,
but a wealthy Russian Jew. Madame
and Mademoiselle Kaafelovitch arc well-
known in Parisian society and are vory
accomplished and talented ladies. Their
home is the favorite resort of the Irish
members and O'Brien was an inmate of
the mansion when he was engaged in
translating the work "When we were

A Latter Day  Wizard.
London, May 10.—Norman Lockyer,
the eminent astronomer who hns recently returned from Greece, is about to settle the question that has long puzzled
urclueologists. It hus to do with the
light which at regulated periods or seasons fell upon tho statues _ of Pallas
Athene and others in the ancient Greek
temples. As might have been expected
when Lockyer undertakes to explain
the question of light, the buu, through
Iub medium, has much to say upon tho
matter. Besides the buu, Lockyer is going to get the stars to reveal their secrets
in relation to the mysteries of the Egyptian temples of antiquitv. Hy this disclosure the conjectural chronology of
Wilkinson, Marriotte, BrtiBch and others
will be superseded or exploded hy the
scientific exposition of tho fact
that Slrius or Mars or Venus
shed a ray of light in a particular
direction at a certain epoch or rather
that the angle of this ray corresponded
with the aperture in such aud such a
temple of IsiB, Apis, Anubis and so-
forth at a given season, and that this
season has been sacred to'God from
timo immemorial, and whose temple
mny be in question, and therefore the
exact date when the temple existed will
be demonstrated by astronomical experiment and proof beyond challenge.

treatment of exiles. Mr. Gladatouo has
written a lottor iu connection with the
matter, in which he snya that Kussiu is
justified in returning tho note in regnrd
to this treatment of the exiles with a
communication calling the attention of
the British Government to the brutal
slaughter of the Irish people at Mitchel-
latown a short time ago.
The Siberian Outrage*.
London, May 17.—An address, to tho
Czar is published by the Universal He-
view to protest against tho outrages perpetrated upon Russians in exile in Siberia. Tho document appears over tho
signatures of 254 prominent .ncn of the
Lords aud Commons, ns well us many
men of letters, artists and persons distinguished in all other walks of life. Accompanying tho protest is a statement
that 185 of the signers thereof ure in
favor of un official intervention of Hor
Majesty's Government in behalf «>f the
a letter from the ex-premier. In this
communication Mr. Gladstone states
that the Russian Government might
justifiably return uny diplomatic note
sent to it by Great Britain touching Ub
conduct of Siberian penal system, with
lin uccompanyihg counter note, directing the attention of Her Majesty's Government lo the "brutal slaughter of •
Irish people at Mitchollstown some
years ago.
Trouhleeoino Condition...
London, May 17.—Russia appears to
bo a groat menace to European peace,
and the menace is iu the direction of
Austria and Bulgaria ns well as Asia..
Tho sapper and miner companies of the
Baltic and Black Sea coasts are being
formed into fortress companies to garrison CroiiBtadt aud Sevastopol and
other strongholds, whose names bring
back memories of the Crimean war.
Tho Servians are aggressive both toward
BoBiiia and Bulgaria. The pVeBident of
the Servian cabinet declares that Russia
will stand hy Servhi in the event of war,
which her conduct seems culculuted to
provoke. Tho most stringent rules are
being put in force aa to passport regula-
tions, and residence of foreigners iu the
Russian Empire, aud these rules seem to
bo chiefly aimed at Austrian subjects.
Strangers ontoring Russia must have
passports stating to what religion they
belong, otherwise they are apt to be
treated as Jews, and their passports
stumped as available only for thoso localities- in which Jews are permitted to
reside. Foreigners who have sojourned
more than a fortnight in Russia must,
before leaving the Empire, travel to the
chief town of tho province where they
have been residing, in order to have
their passports endorsed by the Provincial Governor, nnd a stranger who wishes
to settle for more than six months in
Russia, must obtain a ministerial permit
and if ho desitos to transact any business
in the country he must pay a yearly tax
of 000 roubles.

Tiie str. Yosemite arrived this morning at 8 o'clock from Victoria. Her
cargo consisted of 350 cases of salmon
from Wadhams' cannery for trans-shipment over the C. P. R., and 30 tons of
mixed freight for tho city. On her return trip the Yosemite will take to Victoria 40 head of cattle and over 40 tonB
of farm produce and a largo quantity of
tho same kind of freight waiting
shipment down tho river. Her passenger list this morning was as follows:

Latest reports from up rivor say that
the high water is not doing the damage
expected of it, and the farmers iu the
vicinity of Sumas and Matsqui arc confident of escaping serious trouble for the
presont at least. The Matsqui dyke is
solid its whole length, and has withstood the action of the water, so far,
without a break. The thorough manner
in whioh the work was done ib becoming more apparent every day. At Sumas
Landing, McGillivray'a place is slightly
inundated, and Miller's Point iB now an
island. The wator, however, is dead,
and the laud is not being washed away,
and it is expected when the water recedes little or no damage will found
to havo been done. It is understood
every effort will bo put forward to have
tlie Government institute work immediately to protect the river banks.
Political Not™.
A meeting was held at Vancouver on
Saturday night hy the workingmeu to
select candidates to represent the City
of Vancouver in the Provincial' Parliament. The workingmeu had adopted a
broad and liberal platform, and which
was promised a hearty support by five
of the candidates, who signed it. After
discussing the platform a ballot was
taken resulting as follows: F, C. Cotton 150, C. W. Murray 135, AV*. Templeton 34, J. M. Duval 19, Jaa. Orr 16. J.
McGeer 15. On motion the nominations
of Messrs. Cotton and Murray were
made unanimous, and these gentlemen
nre now in the field as the chosen candidates of tho Vancouver Workingmeu.
It ia understood that Mayor Oppen-
heimer and Mr. J. C. McLagan are in the
field ns the Government candidates for
Vancouver. The team is not a very
strong one, und cannot possibly be elected except W a split in the ranks of the
Mainland Rights party. Vancouver
surely has had enough of the Oppen-
heimer party, aud wo mistake the independence or tho terminal city people if
they allow tho .straight Government
ticket to work in oven a moderate vote.
One of the bust men spoken of, so far,
for Vancouver, is Capt. R. G. Tatlow.
Tills gentleman is known us a man of
sterling honesty, high ability and sound
to the core ou matters relating to the
questions now at issue concerning Mainland Rights. Vancouver will do herself
honor ifshe elects Capt. Tatlow.
The address of Mr. James Punch will
appear in a fow days. It was reported
through Surrey that Mr. Punch intended
resigning the rccvcshlp. Such Is not his
intention, und he authorizes ub to state
thnt he will stick to office until the end
of the present term at least.
The grand requisition to the Hou.
John Robson. from Chilliwack, turns
out, as might havo been expected, to be
a grand fizzle. Ou tho strength of the
lion, gentleman's past popularity, ono of
his friends telegraphed that a requisition
with over a hundred names would be sent
forward from Chilliwack asking him to
stand for re-olcction. Tho papor was
drawn up and circulated, and so great
was the premier's popularity that itonly
obtained 5 signatures in two days.
Many of the leading men of the municipality, who heretofore have boen warm
supporters of Hon. Mr. Robson, refused
point b'ank to sign, and at last accounts
the requisition was faring vory badly.
Thia points clearly to the fact that the
electors of Chilliwack uud Sumas are
solid on tho question of their just rights,
and aro not going to be humbugged into
supporting a government which is not
to do relied on to deal out justice even-
handed ly,
Mr. A. M. Herring's election address
will appear in these columns in a few
days. Mr. Herring has been making a
thorough canvass of the upper section of
the district."
Capt. Livingston Thompon, the well
known rancher of Hntzic Prairie, announces himself a candidate for the
election to tho Provincial Parliament
for tlio Distriot, Capt. Thompson ia a
good Bpeakor, takoa a great interest in
local politics, and is an enthusiastic
member of the Mainland association.
Mr. Thos. Shannon is in tho field to
represent tho district of Westminster in
the local house. His platform is sound
on Mainland Rights, as will be soon by
his address which will appear In a few
days.
Dominion politics aro somewhat overshadowed by the coming local elections,
but at tlie same time interest is far
from dead as regards our next Ottawa
member. Mr. W. B. Townsend returned
yesterday from a trip to the up river
municipalities, and he is roported to
have mot with good success in his enn-
exilea,' They suggest that diplomatic vn.^' .,_■,,_.•. . .■ .

to look as if this important document
had got lost on the road.

COLONISTIC VITRIOL.
Thk Boryiio Government organs—(hose
who have determined to support the
Government through this infamous redistribution measure—do not attempt
argument at all, knowing that nono can
ho found for their contention, but con-
line themselves to misrepresentation,
misconstruction and abuse. Moro es-
pecially.isthis truojif the Colonist, which
lias sneakingly evaded everything like
fair discussion of the question on its
merits, but has shone up wonderfully as
a calumniator and distorter of tho arguments of its .■(■.temporaries, directing its
abuse and misrepresentation principally
against this journal, for the reason, presumably, that we huve been most uctive
nnd persistent in condemning the utterly
indefensiblo Redistribution Bill. In its
issue of Saturday tho Colonist sayB
The Columbian haa been guilty of one
of the most contemptible or tricks. It
says that the Hon. Mr. Robson received
and answered the despatch from Mr.
Hendry, aBking him if ho would represent WeBtminBter City if elected by acclamation, while at Vancouver on Wednesday, on his way to Victoria. In order
to give this lio tho appearance of probability, it publishes the telegrams
without, the dates. Had it published
them dated as they were, tho readers of
the Columbian would have seen that
Mr. Robson received and answered tho
tolegrnm on Tuesday while ho was in
Kamloops. This ia a dirty little dodge,
and it shews what the Columbian ia prepared to do in order to mako what it
considers a point against those whom it
has made its opponents.
As wo havo been assailed so viruently
for making nn inadvertent slip, which
we would novor have noticed had the
Colonist not so politely called our attention to it, in fairness to ourselves we
must enter a plea of " not guilty." The
Colonist charges us with publishing "the
" telegrams without tho dates" so as to
make it appear that Mr. Robson had received and answered the telegram at
Vancouver, on AVodnesday, instead of at
Kamloops, on Tuesday. We freely admit that onr reference to tho matter the
other day convoys the idea that tho telegram in question had been received and
answered nt Vancouver; but wo distinctly deny that we intentionally made this
mistake. In fact, wo copied the telegrams referred to from the new journalistic convert in this city to the dogma of
Governmental infallibility, nnd thnt
paper not only " published the telegrams
" without the dates," but gave, such au
incoherent introduction that, examining
the thing at our leisure, we would ask
the Colonist lo say just when and whero,
according to Truth, Mr. Robson did receive that telegram? Reading the introduction hastily, the other dny, wo received the impression conveyed iu our
article so severely commented on by the
Colonist. If that impression was wrong
(and we take the Colonist's word for it
that it waa), wo freely retract, it, and
give publicity to the Colonist's version,
viz., that the telegram in question was
received and answered by Mr. Robson
nt Kamloops, on Tuesday. To misrepresent any person or thing, us we took
occasion to say once beforo on this redistribution question, is what we
t would wish above all things, to avoid.
But what ia the matter with the Colonist, that it Bhould betray such a painful
sensitiveness over what, so far aB wo can
see, is. a vory immaterial incident?
When the partridge flutters its wings
and enacts other distressful antics before
the huntsman, the man with the gun
knows that the cov bird wishes to distract attention from its nest. Does tiie
Colonist's fussy wrath over this trifle
mean that it has some "nest" to conceal?
It looks very much liko it. Although
we are loaded for " octopuses," we may
just turn aside and take a look into this
" grouse's nest." A glimpse will suffice.
The Colonist characterize!, our trifling
mistake ns a " dirty little dodge." The
fact of the matter is, that tho Colonist
feels keenly that the entire transaction
of the telegram received by Hon. Mr.
Robson, and that gentleman's use of it,
constitutes a very " dirty little dodge."
Hence our cotemporary's wouk but violent nttack upon this paper.
In conclusion, admitting the inadvertent und .unintentional mistake on our
part, as we do, will the Colonist kindly
inform us what difference It makes, with
regard to the incident itself, whether
Mr. Robson received nnd answered the
telegram at Vancouver or Kamloops?
That's tho point.
TRUTHFUL STRUGGLES.
Ouu local morning cotemporary did
not have sense enough to expire decently
in its "last ditch" on Saturday, but has
betaken its maimed form to • the open
again. Convinced now that the extracts
it quoted hist week from the roport of
the interview between tho Government
und the delegation disprove, instead of
support, the ground it has taken, namely,
that the Government hnd " renounced
".the balance of power theoryaltogeth-
" or," Truth brings forward some more
meaningless (as regards tho point at
issue) stuff from tho samo source, to wit,
the published report in the Colonist of
the interview in question:
Mr. Thos. Dunn—Is it tbo intention of
the Government} whon tho census is
taken, to redistribute the seats then, otto wait for four yeara ?
Hon. Mr. Robson—There is uo intention to wait for four years. As to tho
first part of the question, it will depend
upon the result of the census-taking. If
that does not justify any further redistribution there will ho none. I assume,
as a matter of almost certainty, that it
will justify it; but one cannot toll.
Attorney-General—Ab soon ns the census is taken, we shall bo in a position to
bring down legislation. Wo do not want
to wait four years, assuming tho result
renders a redistribution necessary.
It will be Been from a perusal of tho
question and answers above, that they
do not apply at all to tho point that
Truth has risked ita reputation and utterly belied its name in an endeavor to
establish, vix., that the Government had
" renounced the balance of power theory
"altogether." The question and answers quoted refer to a different matter
entirely, namely, as to whether the
Government would bring in'a new redistribution immediately after the census, or wait for four years—and, even on
this point, it will be seen that tho answers were nearly as evasive aa possible. That point, however, has
never been under discussion between
ourselves und Truth, and ottr
cotemporary shows not merely its
utter weakness, hut its dishonesty as'
well, by attempting, to introduce it into
u totally different argument.
Not content with making nn exhibition of itsolf, Truth endeavors
to put us in tho false position of
ontaining a feeling of malevolence
toward tho Promier, and of accusing
both the Premier and the Attorney-
General of lying. Our cotemporary cannot bring forward a single sentence from
anything wo have written on the redistribution question to support cither of
those false assumptions. Wc do not
feel nor havo wo shown a particle of
malevolenco'towards the Premier, ajid
aa to accusing the Premier or the Attorney-General of lying, we havo merely
defended their reported utterances from
the fnso aud senseless misconstructions
put upon them by Truth.
We repeat, what we havo arguod all
along, tho Government as a whole has
not renounced the balance of power
theory, but, on the contrary, is still
holding to it, nnd our misguided local
cotemporary might aa well stop quoting
extracts which prove our contention,
nnd admit that it has been trying to
uphold an utterly untenable position,
Rbfbrbixo to Mr. Hendry's telegram
to Hon. Mr. Bobson, and to a similar request Baid to havo been made to that
gentleman by a citizen of Vancouver,
the News-Advertiser in a late issue asked
if theso inviters really believed that
they could make good their implied
promise to return him, and added, "if
" they do believe it, would they not he
" ashamed to tell the methods by which
" such an end could 6c attained?" The
words we have italicised show where
the point of the question lies. The
News mya in effect: "Gentlemen, you
" are altogether mistaken in supposing
" that you carry these constituencies in
"your vest pockets; but if you really
" think yon do, it must be because you
" are relying upon corrupt influences.'1
Yet the World comes out with an editorial denouncing the News for saying
that these constituencies could be
bought up—which is the vory tiling the
News did not say—the very thing it attacks Mr. Robson's partisans for oven
hinting. To such poor shifts are tho
advocates of the infamous "redistribution" reduced.

TO THE ELEOTORS OF
New Westminster City.
GENTLEMEN:—In response to a requisition,
numerously signed, which hns been presented to
no, I beg to offer myself as representative of
tils City in tho Provincial Legislature,
I frankly confess that, aside from the great
question of the just distribution of legislative
power, 1 would scarcely care lo bo a candidate.
If you do ine tlio honor to elect mo I shall mako
that question my Ilrst consideration ot all times,
and in order to do this It is essential that I
keep quite free from Any entangling alliances
with cither Government or Opposition. But to
tho people nnd tho ndvocacy ofthe rights of the
[WOplo, In this matter and In nil uthors, I cun
lully and freely pledge myself; nnd with those,
lou.t'Y on what side of tho Houso they may,
who nre animated by a similar spirit, t wlll work
cordially.
Tho present crisis demands speulal treatment.
We of the I/iwcr Mainland nre denied our just
"ill iv of legislative power, nnd so long as that Is
looruo onr true policy, In iny opinion—nny,
tlie policy which our own self-respect compels us
lo adopt— Is to return no mnn to tlio Legislature
who will not mako the righting ol that wrong
his Ilrst business. It mny safely be ARsumcd
that those who shall be found willing to do
right lu tbls unit ter, wlll bo tho most likely to do
right In othors also.
Notwithstanding the utmost devotion to this
Ilrst question, your representative will have to
deal with many other mutter.., find perhaps lt
will bo sumoiont now to say on this point that I
believe there Is room for a good deal of work before tho administration of public -iflTiilrs can
claim to bo what It should bo—government by
the people for tho people. I shoulil carnestlv en
denvor to do my slinro of that work.
I believe I may safely nsMunc that you need
nn iiHsurtincu of my deep and abiding Interest In
everything that m"	
Westminster City.
I am, Gentlemen,
Vory truly yours,

A  DIPLOMATIC  DRAMA.
How Count flkouvaloff laid a Trap for
•'       an -fc-i-£l_jh Foreign Secretary.
Washington letter in the Baltimore
American: Speaking about the Russian
treaty and the principles involved in
the treaty, I am reminded of a good
story whioh waa recently told me by a
native connected with the Russian
legation. It illustrates the remarkable detective qualities of the officers of
the Russian army and navy, and shows
how an important movement in war
strategy was made by tho use of detective ability on a social occasion.
In 1870, during the Russian-Turkish
war, the sympathies of the English
Government were on the part of the
enemies of Russia. At that time there
wero tn England. two rival chiefs—
namely: The famous Disraeli (Lord
Beacon afield) and the Grand Old Han,
Mr. Gladstone, The formor waB in
power, and the latter striving to oust
. him out of power. Lord BeaoonsAeld
sounded the key-note throughout Great
Britain that through tho sucoesses of
the Russian arms in tho Bnlkanfi tho
British .in tores ts were in danger, while
on tho othor band tho Grand Old Man
mado speeches that "the Turks must
go, bag and liaggngo, out of Europe."
Each and every success of tho Russian
arms in Turkey so alarmed tho Tory
Government that it was resolved at last
in a Cabinet mooting to aid tho Turkish
Government in arresting the victorious
Russians from marching on Constantinople, and negotiations woro oponed
witli tho Turkish Government for that
purpose. This camo to tho ears of tho
famous Count SkouvalolT, tho then Russian Ambassador to tho Court of St.
James, who was determined, in order to
And out more fully of tho nefarious designs of England on Russia, to givo a
quiet dinner party in honor of the English Foreign Secretary, Lord .
Invitations were accordingly sent out,
and Lord accepted tho samo.   Hero
followed tlio strange story. Count
Skouvaloff, tho Russian Ambassador,
set out a table at that dinner party in a
superb manner, tho plates and other au-
oessorios of tho costliest value.   Lord
 , being tho guest of honor, sat at tho
right of tho Russian Ambassador. During tbe repast tlio Secretary, who is -well
known as a kleptomaniac, helped himself to tho o'ostficst spoons, Bait-collars,
etc. This was observed by tho steward,
who, with ■amazement, informed tho
Russian Ambassador. Ho said that the
Foreign Minister, his guest, had stolen
somo of the host waro from tbe table.
"Hold on!" suid Count Skouvaloff.
"Don't say anything. Keep quiet, for
wo havo bagged tbo enemy."
Tho dinner was over finally, and tho
party retired to an adjoining room for
tho purpose of smoking. Count Skouvaloff inquired of Lord of the truth of
the roport tbat the English Government
waa going to send a fleet to the Bos-
pliorus for the purpose of arresting the
forward movements of the Russian army
in the llalkans and aiding the Turk.
Naturally, the English Foreign Secretary hud little io say on the subject,
On the departure- of  Lord the
Russian Ambassador escorted him to his
carriage, While opening tho door of
the oaiT.ago the Russian Ambassador
was approached by the steward, who
whispered something into the termor's
ear.     Tlio    Ambassador   immediately
turned around  to Lord and said:
"My Lord, something dreadful has happened, so the steward informs mo, and
your Lordship's attention will bo called
for a fow minutes to tho ante-room."
Lord acquiesced, and upon bis arrival tbere was confronted by tho steward and charged directly with tbo theft
of small gold spoons and salt-cellars
studded withdiamondd.
* "What!" exclaimed Lord to the
steward; "how daro you insinuate this
against my person."
fn reply the steward said: "I havo
soon you put the gold spoons in your
trousers pocket, and tho salt-cellars, in
your dross-coat pocket. I am responsible for those costly plates; hence I
watched you closely. Please hand them
out of your pockot."
"Villain!"   exclaimed     Lord ;
"search me and your falsehood will be
branded, and for that insult you will
pay dearly,''
"I dare not," replied tho steward,
"put my hands on your Excellency's
person; but, pray, do it yourself."
"I will,"said Lord-—; and, putting
his hands into his pocket, so unconscious was ho of his kleptomaniac propensities tbat ho drew forth tlio gold
spoons aud salt-collars, In a compla-
pent manner he handed them to the
steward as if nothing had happened.
"Hold!" said Count Skouvaloff; "it
proves to me that your Exoellenoy
abused my hospitality as a host and
committed a gross outrage on society, us
well as against my person. I have to
fiend for tho police and have your Lord-
ship arrested."
"No," replied Lord , "do not disgrace mo and ray official position!"
"Well," said the Count, oaloulatingly,
"lt can only he dono if your Lordship
will promise on the honor of a Minister
to her Majesty the Queen that you, as a
Foreign Minister who has tho greatest
voice in the Cabinet, will oppose tho
sending of tho English (loot to tho Bob-
phorus in order to hamper Russia."
To this Lord assented; and, truo
to hW promise, he opposed tho proposition of sending tho fleet to tho Bos*
, phorus, and, on that account, he had to
resigh his offlco, and Lord Salisbury, the
present Premier of England, was put in
his place.   	
Sand Bags for Health.
The sand hag is invaluable in the
sick-room. Get somo clean, fine sand,
dry it thoroughly in a kettle on the
move. Make a bag about eight inches
square of flannel, fill it with dry sand,
sew tho opening carefully together and
cover tbo bag with cotton or linen, This
will prevent tho sand from sifting out,
and will also enablo you to heat tbo bag
quickly by placing in the oven orovon
on top of the stove. After onoe using
this you will never again attempt to
warm the feet or bands of a sick person
With a bottlo of hot water or briok. The
sand holds the heat a long time, and the
bag oan bo tucked up to tho back without hurting the invalid. It is a good
plan to make two or throe of the bags
and keep them on hand, ready for use
at any time when needed.
Counterfeit Coin Fake.
A clever swindle is that which Is sometimes worked on persons ambitious to
beoomo counterfeiters,    Tho swindler
1 exhibits a finely-finished mold, and,
claiming to possess tho secret of a
metallic compound which no expert can
Uo toot from pure gold, proceeds to cast
a 95 piece. He melts tho secret compound in tho vlctim'ti presence and
pours it into tho mold, on opening
whioh fl new 85 pieoo, perfect in all its
details, is revealed. The truth is that
the molten stuff wont into another part
of tbo mold, and the new SR gold pieoo
'is a gonuino gold coin placed there beforehand by tho sharper to deceive bis
dupo and Induco him to pay a high price
for the mold and tho secret of tho
metallic mixture. 	
Practlco ami Theory.
Practice and theory must go together.
Theory without practice to test it, to
verify it, to correct it, is idle spcoula-
sion;' but practice without theory to an*
imato Itis mere machaniBtn.. In evory
art and business theory is the soul and
practice tlio body. The soul, without
tho body in which to dwell, Is indeed
only a ghost,'but a body.without a soul
is only a corpse.	
AT. HIS OWN  WAKE.
Sailor mike Costlow surprises tlie Mourners at II In Home.
"A funny thing happened some years
ago," said a fisherman to a Boston
Globe reporter, "and if you havo time
to listen I'll spin a yarn whioh you can
put down for gospel truth.
"It was the second year after the
schooner Flying Eagle was built, and I
was one of her orew. That was in the
latter part of tho tso's. At that time all
the boats that supplied the Boston
market with fresh fish made their catch
on the shore, as we termed it, that Is,
near the land.
"As I said, I was one of the Eagle's
crew, and one day wo were fishing on
the northeast part of the Middle hank
and one of our dories, containing Mike
Costlow and John Rafford, missed the
vessel during the heavy snow-storm
that sot In while we were hauling
trawls.
"After searching for them all 'tho
afternoon we gave it up.
"Costlow belonged to thiB port, and
tho women folks kioked up a torrlblo
time when they heard tho bad news, and
tho only consolation wo could offer was
that they might be picked up by a passing vessel.
''Woll, for threo weeks the neighbors
and relatives waited anxiously for the
sea to give up its dead or their friends'
loturn, and as neither was tho result of
tholr wait they decided to have a first-
class wako. Costlow's folks lived on
(lattery street, and his best suit of
clothes was taken down from tho pog in
tho closet and stuffed with hay.
"After all was. ready tho neighbors
camo in to view the dummy that was
stretched on tho table and bewail his
"Afterthe farce had been carried on
for some time a heavy step was heard
on the stairs and then a stumble.
"'Well,'said I, "pon my word, whoever he is bo's in luck, 'cause ho's stumbling upstairs.'
"The crying went on for some time,
then all of a sudden there was a loud
knock at tho door.
" 'Arraht Whocan this bo thatcomes
k nook ing at a wake-house door?'cried
an old lady, but bofore she could receive
an answer in walked Costlow as large as
life.
"'What's this?' said Costlow. 'Is it
mo or my step-husband?' and fotohing a
kick at tho dummy he destroyed tho
whole outfit in short notice.
" 'Give us a cup of tea,' said he, 'and
nono of this fooling. It's no way to welcome a man home after being away threo
weeks on board a vessel whoro there was
nothing to eat but the masts.'
"After awhile one person said: 'It is
Mike, I belicvo.'
'"Of course it is,* said he,'and if I
thought I would look any thing like that
stuffed oorpso in tho corner tho devil a
die I'd ever want todio on this earth.'
'Ho then explained that he and his
chum woro picked up by a German bark
and during tbe heavy northwest gale
that came the next day they wero driven
to sea and their sails blown away.
After repairs woro made they again
headed toward ttoston, but woro again
blown off thi! coast; then they wero favored by fair winds and arrived in port
in a dilapidated condition.
"After ho landed bo made his way to
tho house, and, seeing crape on the
door, asked somo peoplo who was dead;
and being informed that it was himself,
proposed to quietly put in an appearance.
"You know tho rost. But I am sorry
to say that poor Mike was lost on
Georges a, fow yoars ago, when the
schooner Paul Revere wont down with
all hands during a heavy winter gale."
JEFFERSON'S  GRANDCHILD
Ivliig In Humlilo (.iriiumtit-tnees arid He-
fusetl n Peitslan,
In Georgetown, i>. O., in n humble
cottage which rents for twenty dollars a
month, lives tbe only surviving grandchild of Thomas Jofferson,'says tlie New
York Sun. Her name is Mrs. Septimia
Randolph Molkleham, widow of David
S. Moiklohani, long since doad. Sho is
in her seventy-sixth yoar, a cultured,
amiable, venerable old lady, with two
J a Lighters and ono son in ber household. A luxuriant growth of curly,
silvery-wbito hair surrounds her face,
which bears a striking resomblanco to
that of her illustrious grandfather.
Her descent from him is direct and
clear. Born January 3,1814, under her
grandfather's roof at Montlcollo, Va..
sho is the daughter of Jefferson's favorite child and housekeeper. Martha, who
married Thomas Mann Randolph, Jr.,
afterward Governor of Virginln, by
whom sho bore twelve children,' all of
whqm aro dead oxcept the eleventh
child and seventh daughter, tho present
Mrs. Meikleham, tho only living representative of Jefferson of two removes
since hor sister, Virginia Jefferson Randolph Trlst, died in 1883. Mrs. Molkleham Is infirm by reason of advanood ago.
Her son, a man of artistic temperament,
now In middle lifo, earns scarcely
onough for solf-support. Of hor two
daughters, both of whom are middle-
aged, the younger, Miss Esther A.
Molkloham, horn while hor parents
wero sojourning in Scotland, is employed in the Patent Office as a olerk nt
a salary of 61,000 a year, wbilo tho other
has charge of the housekeeping. Repeated attempts by influential legislators to secure for Mrs. Meikleham a
moderate pension have resulted only In
failure. In tho Forty-soventh and
Forty-eighth Congrosses Representative
W. E. Robinson, of Now York, introduced a bill to pay her $t>,000 a year,
subsequently amended to 5*2,500. Congress, however, refused to pass tho
measure on tho ground that its enactment would set a dangerous precedent
for other claims less' meritorious for
civil pensions,

for tuition.
"Yes, sir.   What aro your tertm?"
"Five dollars for threo lessons."
"All right, I'll tako tho first lesson

Tlie toucher then began to lay down

"All right," tho pupil answered.
"You must exterminate overy human
desire; must give yourself up to the
ruling ot your spirit Instead of yielding to a single Impulse of tho body,"
"AU right," the student agreed.
'Well."  tho teacher  ono   day remarked when tho term had been completed, "1 think that you are now prepared to graduate with honors."
"All right; muoh obliged."
"But have you not forgotten something?" the teacher asked when tho
student had started out
"No, reckon not."
"Yob, yon have forgotten to pay me

"Oh, you see, I had a strong desire to

TO THE ELECTORS
New Westminster District,
GENTLEMEN;—Ab I have already announced^
I beg to oft'er .uy_.pl i as a candidate for the neat In
the Coiiinuni.miludo vacant by the death of our
late member, and I como before you as n sup-
porter ot tho Government of Sir John Mncdoti'
aid, reserving to mysoll, of course, tho right to
act Independently should the action of the Government In nny mutter seem prejudlcal to onr
interests.
1 would strongly urge Immediate ntlention to
(lie Improvement of the River where reonlrcd,
for the protection of the rich agricultural lands
of tbe District, und If elected,! shall at once
proceed to Ottawa and leave no slono unturned
to secure tho immediate, appointment of u
competent engineer with a view to tho prompt
undertaking of this most Important work.
Ah you are.ware, tho duty 011 certain kinds
uf mining machinery lias been remitted in this
Province ns 11 siH.clal concession lo llrltlsh Co-
lumbia on account of the special comlllloiiH obtaining bore. I would slronglv urge the further
application of this principle of special tariff ar-
rnngciiK'nte, so as to relieve consumers of goods
which must be Imported, while preserving tho
protection of onr agricultural nnd other In
■crests.
The land laws of the Dominion, having been
framed without close consideration of our requirements, are in many points unsuitable, for
example lu the conditions as to clearing, I
would endeavor to secure immediate reform In
this Important matter.
urgently present the claims to similar assistance
of railways within our own Province,
Bhould tho Oity of Now Westminster decide to
build a bridge across the Eraser, 1 should use
my best endeavors to obtain a substantial nub-
sidy for the work, urging that an undertaking
of tills character should rank with canals nnd
railways as one entitled to national aid.
The next census will undoubtedly show such
nn increnso In the wealth and population of this
District as will constitute an undeniable claim
to increased representation In tho Commons.
That claim, if elected, I shall support to the utmost of tny ability.
Although, with tho growth of tho District,
the mall service lias been Improved and extended, It still lags far behind our requirements.
I should give special attention to this part of
your representative's work, feeling that it is
one which Is of vital Importance.
I should urge the enactment of such llshery
regulations, especially lu the Issuing of licences,
ns would, without nny Injustice to tho canneries, the Importance of which to the prosperity of
tbo District nit must recognize, fully protect
the free (lshcru.cn, and encourage the settlement amongst us of tho greatest possible mini*
ber of that Industrious and hardy class of men.
All enact mollis and regulations for tho protection of white labor would receivo my hearty
support. *
Continued work towards the Improvement of
the harbors of Now Westminster and Vancouver, and the efficient lighting and buoying of
the same, Is a matter which would have my
closes! attention at nl! limes.
In a word, I should constantly urge upon tho
Government the wisdom of a liberal policy in
public works lu this District, the vast resources
of which make It certain that such a policy
would he amply Justified by results.
Trusting to have the opportunity of seeing
every elector before polling day,
I am, Gentlemen,
Very sincerely yours,

Pitt meadows are under water. One
of tho prosperous ranchers of that rich
tract of land was in the city this morning, and said he was using all the nets
he possessed to put around his trees to
prevent the fish from nibbling the blossoms and young fruit. This gentleman
has no chestnuts on his ranch, but his
fruit iB noted for its freshness.
A private letter received at Victoria
from Eucalet states that the body of an
Indian, apparently about 30yearsofage,
was washed ashore there a few days ago.
The corpse, up to the time of writing,
had not been identified, nnd no facts
concerning the affair could be had. The
head bore a severe wound just above tlte
right ear, but whether inflicted before or
after death was unknown.
A large quantity of whitings was received this morning from Vancouver at
Vianon's UbIi market. The fish are

meats east dolly,  mul  they  have boon
able to keep up the supply so far without break.
The Moody Square improvements arc
progressing rapidly. The force ut work
has cleared a large extent of the ground
nnd the locally is coming to look more
like a square than a wilderness. The
blasting and blowing up of the trees are
conducted on a system that ensures
perfect safety to the houses in the
neighborhood, nnd by this means tlie
work is "rushed" in a manner that
must be eminently, satisfactory to tho
Board of WorkB, as well as every one
with the interest of tho City nt heart,
The visit of Mother Goose to this city
a few weeks ago attracted a much larger
audience than the hall would hold. The
old lady, being a kind and sweet*tem-
pered creature, and foeling deep regret
that her handsome fnce and winning
ways were not seen by the entire populace, has signified her intention of appearing in public once more, to allow
those who were- disappointed to have a
good look at her. She will drop into
Herring's Opera" House on Wednesday
evening at 8 o'clock.
Smoke pouring from the giant refuse
burner of tho Ross-MLnren saw mills today seemed to indicate that work had
started at that institution. Most of the
machinery of this great mill is in place
and it is safo to say that the full blast
stage will be reached in a very short
time. It is expected that tho influence
of this company will have a beneficial
effect in obtaining those improvements
to tho channel of the Frnser which have
been deliberately neglected by tho
Dominion Government since confederation.
Two ordinary drunks occupied the attention of tho police magistrate for a few
minutes this morning. One of the
inebriates forfeited his bail by nonappearance; the other was fined one
dollar as ho had beon incarcerated since
the preceding Saturday afternoon. Tiie
police get around more than they used
to, and those members of society who
find life not worth living unless tbey are
drunk and either incapable or disorderly,
do not have the liberal margin for tlio
free play of their sportive fancy they
once had.
The meeting of the Rowing Club,
which wub to have taken placo nt the
City Hall to-morrow evening at 8o'clock
ha. been postponed until Wednesday
evening in the same place at 'the same
hour. This is dono on account of the
general meeting of the Lacrosse club on
Tuesday evening. Tho lacrosse men
should show thoir appreciation of this
courtesy by turning out full strength to
the Rowing Club meeting nnd helping to
advance that institution ns much as they
can. It is believed Mayor Brown will
occupy thechair at Wednesday ovening'B
'meeting.
Early Friday morning, ihe Skcenn

Tha Partial Holiday.
It will be romembored that a memorial
was laid before tho City Council Inst
Monday night from the men employed
on public works within tho city limits,
asking the favor of a partial holiday on
Saturday. Tlio matter was taken 'into
consideration, and by order of Mayor
Brown work was stopped at threo o'clock
on Saturday afternoon, and this system
will be maintained while tho term of
the present council lasts. It is hardly
necessary to add that the workmen are
more than pleased with the change.
Bullied the Poandkeeper.
Poundkeeper Murray was stopped on
the Btreet last Saturday by a gentleman
who alleged that he had a grievance in
the shape of some animated property of
his having been taken off the streets and
lodged in pound. The language made
use of by thiB person was the reverse of
complimentary, and even if the pound-
keeper had done some serious wrong
(which in this instance he certainly did
not as he found the animal on a vacant
unfonced lot abutting on a public
thoroughfare, and very sensibly and
properly ..did his plain duty by arresting
tbe animal), even if he had trespassed
upon courtesy and exceeded his duty
the fact would have given no warrant to
such violent language as was used to
this inoffensive public officer. The public, however, will support Mr. Murray in
the discharge of hia duty and it has yet
to be proved that he lies exceeded it in
one particular.
Home Fino Singing.
One of the largest congregations that
has gathered within the walls of St.
Andrews Presbyterian Church in some
time filled almost every seat iu thnt edifice last night. Tlio re-organisation of
the choir and the advent of the new organist, Mr. Watson probably had much
to do with this pleasing change. The
piece selected by the leader to t>e auiig
as un offertory was a very beautiful setting of "In the cross of Christ I glory,"
and the choir did it full justice. Tho
buss solo part by Mr. Gibson was very
effective, and the general rendering and
singing excellent. Mr. Watson's management of the orgrn snowed him to be
muster of that instrument although the
one at the Presbyterian Church has
scarcely rango enough to "show off" the
true abilities of a good musician. Under
the masterly care of Mr. Watson the St.
Andrews Church choir will no doubt
achieve grent things before very long.
Children Cry for Pitcher's Castorla.
Probable Fatal Accident.
This morning a Chinaman from Lulu
Island, whoso name could not be learned,
went into Messrs, Cunningham Bros,
hardware store on Columbia street to
buy a stove. While inspecting the" articles he stepped backward a pace or
two and dropped down the elevator
shaft to the cellar, striking his head
agaiiiBt a heavy beam near the bottom,
knocking him insensible. The man lay
for a long time ns inanimate ns if life
had departed, and Dr. Cooper was summoned to attend to the unfortunate
man's wounds. The doctor found that
the ear had been badly cut, and on the
aide of the head was a great bruise, dangerously situated, and which lim^v have
produced concussion of the brain. AU
that could bo dono for the man under
the circumstances wns done. Some
west end Chinamen recognized the man
und carried him away, still insensible,
nnd with scant hopes for his recovery.
The Moiifircu   Maatoiloii.
Queen Jumbo will be at New Westminster on Wednesday, May 28. Tho
announcement of the coming of Mc-
Million's Circus heralds Hie advent of the
largest animal known to history, as well
as many new interesting nrenic features
destined to create quite a furore. The
arrival of the mammoth elephant in
New York was the all absorbing topic
and subject of much newspaper comment. The car nrrnnged to bring her
majestic majesty from the Atlantic to
the Pacific was found to bo too low,
causing a few dayB delay to enable the
car builders to raise the roof and lower
tho floor between the wheels. It wns
then doubtful whether the car would
go through the tunnels en route. The
movements Of tho big one across the
continent being telegraphed from point
to point caused much enthusiasm among
the people along the line, immense
crowds gathering nt the stations only to
be disappointed, ns the weather wub
cold and the mastodon could not be ox-
posed.
...   .,   Knight* »f the Wheel.
lo \ ancouver ana mica i« .ity&iil.!.K v.
very popular excursion with many of our
local bicyclists. The road is hi fine condition, nnd excepting the few stiff hills
to be climbed, a very onjoyahle ride ia
possible to the terminal city, where a
spin around Stanley Park, n swim or a
row on tho Inlet and tho ride home in
the cool of the evening make up a rare
programme. Apropos of bicycling, it
seems that most of our local wheelmen
nre disposing of their high wheel machines nnd going in for "Safety" bicycles. The latter style of machine is
the very thing for hill-climbing and
roads that never heard tho blessed name
of macadam; a "spill" over tho front is
possible, and the'r low-set treadles
make it a simple matter to disengage if
there is trouble ahead when running
swiftly. The Victoria cyclists speak of
thorn highly although the roads thero
render the Rudge, Columbia and other
highwheelspcrfeetlysafo. The proposed
bicycle club is scarcely on the topis );et,
but the city cyclists recognize the importance of forming such an association
nnd will doubtless get together very
soon nnd put themselves ou a good working business basis.
The Straits City.
Mr. Theo. Lubbo, vice-president of
the Victoria, Port Crescent A Chehalis
railroad, returned on the Kingston from
Tacoma last evening. To a representative of the Colonist Mr. Lubbe stated
that the arrangements for tho construction of the line were all completed, nnd
the total stock subscribed tor. Work
would be commenced nt both ends of
the lino und pushed on to a rapid completion. There could be no question as
to the strength of the company, ub could
be seen from the names of the gentlemen forming the directorate nnd trustee
board. The country through which the
linejwas to bo built wns rich in agriculture and timber wealth, and this and
the fact of the lino terminating nt the
nearest available point to the sea, would
build up a largo city at Port Orescent.
The lino from Port Beocher to a connection with the Island railway aud
with Victoria would also be built, giving this city its long desired connection
by rail with the American system of
roads. For some weeks work has been
in progress at Port Crescent, and now
that tho question of railway construction wns definitely settled thoro would,
no doubt, bo considerable Htir in building at tho now town.
Steainiht].  Accident.
Oil Saturday evening as the K do K
was coming over to the City on her 7:30
trip, her ongines broke down a few yards
from the Brownsville landing. From
this side the passengers could be seen
running back and forth on tho boat,
evidently in n vory disturbed Htate of
mind. Tho current took tho old boat
and whirled her nround two or three
times nnd thon she began hor downward
journey'to the gulf. Had it not heen
for tho passengers, no doubt every witness of the accident would have heaved a
hearty sigh of relief and said, "let her
go." Over by Murphy's "camp the engine was repaired, and, to the disappointment of everybody, the little
steamer again attempted to make tho
passage. She had not proceeded a hundred yards when the machinery again
broke down. ThiB time it looked like,
ns tho gamins say, "n go," but repairs
were again accomplished and another
und pormnnent start mado within a fow
yards of tho cannery at the point. No
more accidents disturbed tho serenity of
the ferry boat the rest of the evening, but
it is to be hoped, in the interests of the
public convonionco nnd tho public safety, that tho K. de K. mny soon bo removed from tho rivor ana n proper and
a safo bout put on in its place..
A High Tribute.
The Valhousie Gazette for Mny contains
the valedictory addresses of the graduating classes of that university. The valedictory on behalf of the law graduates
was written and read by H. Hellish, B.
A. Speaking of the British Columbia
students who passed such a successful
graduation examination, be says:
"In this connection I should like for
your gratification to be able to say
(what you doubtless invariably expect
to hear on occasions like the present),
that the past year marks an important
epoch in the history of Dalhonsie College,
Tho Balhousie Gazette ol the 13th of Inst
March says: 'To-dny our students ure
drawn, not alone from the Maritime
Provinces, but nlso from the far distant
Pacific Shores, where sunny foot-hills
run down to the North Pacific sea, and
mighty Frnser meets the sun in many
angles. For the first time in her history Dalhonsie this year confers the degree of L. L. B. ou students residing
outside the Maritime Provinces.' Two
British Columbians to-dny graduate
with us, one of whom hi particular, has,
by his own act, estopped himself from
denying a fraternal reference mtblicis in
comities. This fair-haired child of the
land of the setting sun, and his worthy
countryman, their fellow-class-mates,
without envy, cordially congratulate.

A Horrible Occurrence.
Mr. P. McTiernnn, Indian Agent, returned from the Squamish River on
Saturday, whore he went to still a serious disturbance among the Indians.
Early lust week tho Indian burying
ground, which hns been used by the Si-
washes for centuries, was swept over by a
forest fire and the remains of three hundred Indians totally consumed. The
SiwashoB do not bury their dead, but
coffin them and stow them away in log
houses built for the purpose, consequently wheu the fire once took
hold it continued to burn until all
the bodies woro reduced to ashes.
The Indians wero groatly horrified by
the burning of tho bodies, and as nothing is so sacred to them as their dend,
they deeply lamented the Bad affair and
were much excited about it. Without
taking the trouble to reason out the
cause of the fire, they camo to the conclusion that the white settlers along the
Squamish had purposely brought it
about, and so far did their feelings
carry thein that violonce agaiiiBt these
people was openly talked of. Mr. McTiernan was sent for iu baste, and arrived In time to quell the excitement before it got beyond bounds. Reinvestigated the matter thoroughly, and came
to the proper conclusion, that the fire
was accidental. This he explained
clearly to the Indians, and gave them
much wise advice, which they acted on
and abandoned their first intention of
revenge. Mr. McTiernan has great influence with the Indians, nnd it is woll
he has, for ou such occasions us thesi
tho advice of no ordinary man would bo
taken, and trouble, if not murder, would
have been the outcome of the burning.
When Mr. McTiernan left tho Indians
wero quiet, but terribly grief-stricken
over the destruction of the bodies,

A Feathered Froillgy.
Mv, Logan Davis, of Surrey, called nt
thia office on Saturday afternoon and
exhibited a bird which he hud shot on
his farm near Surrey Centre on Friday.
Mr, Davis called tho bird a white hawk,
but could find no such specimen mentioned iu the ornithological works in
his possession. The bird measures four
feet six inches from tip to tip of the
wings, bus the short thick ncck-of the
aquiline species, also the broad, short-
curved beak of the eagle, and the flat,
thinly-clad cranium. The legs arc short,
thick and strong, nud n bright, yellow in
color, the toes being armed with long
sharp white claws. Tho plumage of the
bird is snow white on the backj breast,
sides and wings; the tail, consisting oi
about a dozen broad, rounded-tip feathers, being of a rich deep sienna brown,
.lioilW *" M»»1- nf (.w. n-U«" '•-   "-•-
pitiiono the outsiao feathers are pure
white and then, two and two, (lark-grey,
and clear white. Here and there on
the breast and back are speckled feathers and tlie front of tho neck is powdered with small brownish-gray tips. The
bird is a puzzle to all our local ornithologists, but the general opinion is thnt
it is a hybrid, part kestrel falcon and
pnrt golden engle; it is au aquiline nlbi
no, so to speak. This specimen is the
female. The male bird, which .was also
killed, but was lost in the bneh, had
dark plumage. Tho pair had their nest
at the summit of n giant pine over
two hundred feet tall; ami, owing to
the depredations which they were beginning to mako on the neighboring
poultry yards, Mr. Davis decided to hew
down the tree. When tho monster
came to earth it was found on examination that the birds bad placed their
home deep down in a hollow of tlie
trunk, whero they could bring forth
their young secure from every storm.
The tree measured seven feet in diameter and twenty-seven feet in circumference, and this will give strangers an
idea of the indomitable energy of our
hardy Surrey Settlers when once thev
decido thnt a thing hns got to bo done.
Mr. Davis is very proud of his "bag"
nnd intends to send it down to Mr. Jojm
Fnnnoiij the celebrated curator of tho
Provincial MiiBOUin nt Victoria, who will
stuff and mount the bird in his usual
fine style. Mr. Davis says that nothing
more mnjestic or grand could be fancied
than the nppcarapco of this noble bird
floating n hundred yards in the air with
wings outstretched, motionless, against
tho blue. He tried to get a shot at it
several times with tho rifle, but the
bird seemed to have the marvellous pre-
seionce of the crow, which, as every
farmer knows, is as well acquainted with
what n gun can do as tho best sportsman going. A henvy charge of buck
shot finally ended tho career of the mysterious pirate of tho air.

f
TO THE  ELECTORS
ew Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of tho near
approach of the election to iill the vacancy caused by tlio death of our late
representative (the much-respected D.
Chisholm) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before you
some of my views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.
I have been uskcd'what 1 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 eltect of
changing many of my views, and given
me liberal ideas, therefore ] claim I am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that party lines are not denned in
British Columbia as they aro in the older
provinces, I consider that our representatives are not in duty bound to givo a
ihrouyh-thick-and-thiit Btipport to any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
good measures which may bu brought
before them, and to consider tbo prosperity of tbe Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, and
should a measure cume before thom
which they consider in any way detrimental to tho interests of this Province
thoy should take their stand like true
men aud vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture iu
tho East, and many articles of every-day
xuse to our Farmers and others, und
which we cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors ovor the
line, and in many cases the articles are
better adapted to our needs than thoso
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming aud .Mining
Machinery, Wooden Waro and other articles are brought from the Slates, although tho duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply "our wants, and
are obliged to croBs tlio border for it,
and .are mot witli such heavy duties
that heads of families iu this Province
pay more than ten to one compared to
their.compeers in Eastern Provinces,
Wc have had example to tbe point during tbo last three months. If we had
not received a good supply from California there would havo been a meat
famine; as it is we aro now and have
been paying 25 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the samo state 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 aro little hotter prepared to meet hard winters than they
wore before, and to my mind tho only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
N. P. are the manufacturers. As a truo
Britisher I should liko to soo "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question,! would advocate "Keciprocitv"
in many articles which are at nros-
ent in tbe Tariff lists, as I mink
it would be beneficial to both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go down so deep into his
pockets to buy what he needs to cat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
havo a revenue to carry ou the affairs of
the country, but 1 would havo "luxuries"
pay more and get at the pockets of the
richer classes who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of the late Mr. Chisholm, ho was unable
to be in his place this session, and vory
little during the previous one, so wo of
this District have beeu practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before tho notice of
the House. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
been in his seat, I do not think the Postmaster-General would have been loft so
much in the dark concerning tho necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Eraser as he seems to have beeu
when he proposed to cut off tho mail
subsidy from that important route, and
thero aro other pluees in the District
which need better postal facilities, which
1 consider should receivo that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope that in the near future our
District will reach that point that wo
may look for it to be divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is tho largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1500
miles of territory, aud when tho census
returns are in I think the necessary
number of [Herniation will bo found to
demand such additional representation.
Tho protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should receivo my earnest
attention, also the works for improving
tho channel at the Sandheads, in view
of the expected increase in our shipping
interests,
I consider tho Province should havo
control over all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Eishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District in particular, I fool should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from tho mouth
of the Sorpentlno to Fraser Rivor, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from tho Frasor Kiver to Port
Moody, which has often beon suggested
to mc.
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, and encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coining here fast
enough; I would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province,
a bad name. /
Thero are many other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would wufke
tliis address too long. I hope to see as
many as possible before tho electjon,
when I shall be prepared to laymy vbws
more fully before them and answer/any
questions. As soon as possible after tbe
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send duo notice of time and place of meetings.
During my long residence in tho Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters beforo the notice of tho
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I have the honor to be elected
I assure you I shall watch over tlio interests oi this District faithfully and tu
tbo best of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go ub a truo British Columbian and to do my duty as suoh.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.
