I.mly Cook Again   In  Trouble.
Nkw Yokk, May 10.—Advices from
Ottawa, III., state thnt a charge of manslaughter is pending there in the shape
of an indictment against Lady Frances
Cook, of London, formerly Tcnnie C.
ChBlin, who, with her sister, Mrs. John
Biadulph Martin, formerly Mrs. Victoria Claflin Woodhull, arrived in Now
York a short time ago from England.
The indictment was brought in La Salic
county, 111., in .Tune 1804, Tennie O.
Clufliii being charged with placing on
the breast of ltebecea Howe drugs
which ate away the flesh, causing death,
iit February, 1805. The court ordered
the case stricken from the calendar with
leave to reinstate the same, and it is to
this latter clause that the reopening of
the case may lie due. The sisters are
expected to arrive in Chicago shortly.
Lady Cook, when seen, says she never
heard of the case until a few months ago,
whon^apers and letters from Ottawa
were mailed to herself and her husband
in London, demanding $100,000 hush
money to prevent the revival of the indictments. Mr. Martin also received a
demand to the same effect, hut the
amount asked was $260,000. Lady Cook
stated that she was only 10 or 18 years
of age when she waB in Ottawa with her
mother, and that she wns then exercising the power of curing people by the
laying on of hands. This woman,
among others, came to her, and at her
mother's request she essayed to cure,
though she saw it wus hopeless, passing
her hands, with magnetic ointment,
over the breast. The woman went
away, but afterward died from cancer.
Lady Cook claims that the story is the
outgrowth of the old persecution ngniust
herself and her lister.
Eastern Advices.

San Fbancisco, May 12.—There wns
not a single Chinaman on board the
China in transit for a Mexican port,
while previous steamers arriving huve
brought large numbers, many of whom
have since worked their way into the
United States. Collector Phelps said:
IJam highly gratified to And that there
are no Chinese on the steamer for Mexican ports; there is no doubt that hundreds have come here ou steamers as
passengers and, after being placed on
the Panama steamer, have been landed
at Ensennda, Guayamas, or Mazatlun,
and then worked their way over the
border; I think we have stopped that
loophole, aud will turn our attention to
others.

Decision   Rendered.
London, May 10.—It is- learned that
the Archbishop of Canterbury has
written his judgement iu the case of
Bishop of Lincoln. It is rumored that
the judgment is against the use of altar
lights, but that it declines to deal with
the question of making the sign of the
cross in the act of blessing, or the question of absolutions, these being purely
Eersonal acts, not authorized or for-
idden by the Book of Common Prayer.
Britain's Army.
London, May 9.—Viscount Wolseley
asserts that the British army was never
iu a more efficient condition than it is
to-day, aud that the soldiers are as good,
physically and mentally, as at any time
in England's history. He speaks of the
English army at home as simply agrand
depot for recruits, where a raw young
man is taken in to be fully trained ana
then sent to one of the various stations
maintained in all parts of the world by
England. He declares that it is au absurdity for "England to think of contending in numbers with the armies of
foreign states; that the navy of Great
Britain ought to be the greatest and
most powerful in tho world, nnd* behind
the navy a small, well-trained army to
garrison and protect the forts and coaling stations abrond. The Viscount
laughs at the idea, however, that Great
Britain would be forced to succumb even
in the event of n disaster to her navy,
He maintains that there is always a considerable amount of provisions in the
country and that no blockade could be bo
efficient as to prevent America from
sending supplies. ThiB hint of dependence ou America in a time of need does
not prevent England from straining
every nerve to retain the lion's share of
South American commerce, and mercantile circles aro rejoicing over the
idea that the recent Pan-American Congress wus a failure so far as concerns extending the trade of the United States
with South America.
The Dark Continent.
London, May 9.—A congresB of thoso
European powers which have territorial
possessions in Africa is rapidly becoming
a necessity if serious complications and
troubles are to be avoided. There are
all tho elements of a great outbreak in
the seizure and parcelling out of territory which is going ou in that country.
often in defiance of distinct lines oi
limitation and treaty obligations. Some
of theso conflicting interests have undoubtedly arisen out of the imperfect
maps, which leave out important lines
of the divisions in question, but they
are too frequently traceable to the spirit
of aggression which threatens misnief.
The friction which lately rose between
England and Portugal was only an illustration of what may occur at any
moment between other powers. The
policy of Germany iB in new hands.
Prince Bismarck wns known to be averse
to doing anything that would tend to
warfare with English interests in East
Africa, but his successor, General Von
Caprivi, is not so favorably disposed towards maintaining intact the agreement
of 1887. Hence the new expedition of
which Emin Pasha is In charge, renders
more necessary than ever that there
should be a clear understanding as to
tlie precise boundaries of English and
German territories if serious trouble Ib
to be avoided. England's recent trouble
with Portugal und the present uncertainty as to the intentions of Germany,
clearly show the need of a better understanding than now exists between all
the jiowers interested in this position of
the "dark continent," and which is
being curried out by methods more or
less dangerous nnd aggressive.

VICTORIA   NEWS.
Very Nearly a Big Fire--Promptness of
the Fire Brigade—Plenty nf Itain
at the Capital;
Special to Tiik COLOMBIAN.]
Victoria, May'12.—"81" wus the
number which rang out Inst night from
the Gamewell lire-alarm. The engines
were quickly on the scene of the blaze,
which wns a house of ill-fume kept by
Edith Haynes ou Broughton Street, be*-
tween St. Andrew's Presbyterian church
and the Victoria Transfer stables. The
lire was discovered to be on the roof and
extinguished without great damage.
Had the fire communicated to the Victoria Transfer stables, a most disastrous
conflagration would have lieen the result.
A fine rain fell ull yesterduv and soaked the city and district. It will be of
great benefit to the crops, which bndly
needed it. To-duy was bright nnd
warm,       '	
Terrible    Aceldent.
The tug Pilot brought news to Nanaimo Thursday, says the Erie Press, of
one of the loggers in Seymour Narrows
meeting with a terrible accident by
having his legs cut oft'. It appears the
man (whose name could not be obtained} was engaged in the shute ns n large
log was coming down, when all of a
sudden tho log canted' und came down
by the run. Iu its course it caught his
legs against the side of the shutes, cutting them almost off, with the exception
that they hung by the skin. Four of
his comrades immediately placed him
in a canoe and left for Vancouver. He
was not expected to live to arrive there.

Kamloops Industrial School.
The arrangement is now completed,
says the Inland Sentinel, to have the
Sisters take charge of the girls' department of the Industrial School. The
great success attending the schools in
the Northwest under the superintendence of the Sisters lias argued in favor
of this course being taken with the
Kamloops school. Desks, seuts, und the
rest of the furniture required, it is
expected, will soon be ready, when the
school will be opened. Already notice
has been given to send the scholars selected for the commencement. The
windmill to supply water to tho school
and to irrigate the garden, is about
ready for operation. The officers and
friends of the institution nre hopeful of
accomplishing much good for the native
population, thus justifying the praiseworthy liberality of the Government in
this as in other worthy objects.

Free Viinkeeland.
On the steumer Premier, which left
Seattle for Vancouver ti few days ago,
were three Chinamen who were under
the escort of a United States deputy
marshal. The Mongolians will be put
on board the  Canadian Pacific Com-
?any's steamer Batuviu, to be carried to
he land of rice nud vice. This marks
the last act in a little play that put the
United States officials in u sort of a
dilemma. About a year nnd a half ago
several captures of coolies trying to
smuggle themselves into the States,
were made by the customs officials.
The Chinamen were brought,beforo the
United States commissioner, who remanded them to the country from whence
they came. The United States marshal
undertook to carry out this order by
taking tho coolies to British Columbia,
but us there was no positive evidence
that the Chinamen had beep there before, and as they did not have a head
tax receipt, they wore refused the right
to land unless tne sum of $50 apiece was
paid. This the marshal had no right to
do, so he reported the matter to the
court, who ordered the coolies kept at
McNeill's island until some provision
was made for their deportation. United
States Attorney White went to Washington to Bee if something could bo
done, but he was unsuccessful iu his
plea for relief. Since then out of nineteen Chinese imprisoned nil but six
have escaped. Now there are only three
on the island, those who' passed through
Seattle on tho Premier having agreed to
pay their own passage to China rather
than be imprisoned longer.
The Campaign Opens.
On Friday night a representative and
Influential- meeting of supporters of the
local government was held in the Sir
William Wallace Society rooniB, Victoria, for the purpose of nominating candidates for the representation of the city
of Victoria ut the ensuing elections.
Tho hall was tilled to overflowing, many
having to stand, und some being compelled to remain out in the passage.
On motion, Col. Prior, M. P., was called
to the chair, und, at his request, Hon.
Theodore Davie explained that although
a ticket of Government candidates had
been selected and had found its way into the papers, it wus not intended that
it should be final. It was impossible
for any one to select a ticket whether of
four names or one that would be absolutely agreeable to all. Compromises
had to be made nnd he would say ou behalf of the gentlemen whose names hud
been mentioned, that if this meeting
thought it advisable for any of them to
do so they would step down and out,
but, at the same time would support the
candidate chosen by the meeting. The
gentleman who had first been nominated was Hon. J. H. Turner. It wns eminently fitting that ho should run for
Victoria, ho being Finance Minister of
the Province. Personally he (Mr, Davie)
had for eight years beeu a member for
the constituency of Victoria; but on
this occasion he should not offer himself.
When he had been called to the Ministry,
there being no vucant Beat in the island
of Vancouver he could not run in nn'
outside constituency, and therefore presented himself in the city. Otherwise
he should huve run outside, us jealousy
always prevailed with respect to any
constituency having a plurality of of cabinet ministers. If Victoria hnd two out
of Ave cabinet ministers it might be u
source of serious disaffection, und to
avoid this he withdrew. If he hud not
dono so Hon. Mr. Tumor would not
have presented himself here. There wns
a constituency on the island where he
wns well known, where his friends
lived, nnd to which he wns warmly nt-
tuched. There he intended to go. He
thought it his duty to this meeting to
give the reasons why he did not run in
Victoria, as he had no desire to desert
tho constituency. It wus not because
ho feared that the olectors of Victoria
would not support him. Bnt it would,
ho considered, be unjust that other
places should not have representation
in the cabinet. He assured Itis hearers
that although he would not be a candidate ho should work just as hard in behalf of tho candidates whom tliis meeting should choose. He had just ns much
interest In this campaign as if ho were
a candidate, if not, indeed, more. Mr.
Davie Bat down amid great cheering.
A ballot having been taken for candidates the following were chosen: Hon.
J. H. Turner, Cnpt. Irving, Mr. Duck
aud Mr. Dalby.

CHILMWACK CHIPS.
I From  Our  Own Correspondent.)
Chilliwack, May 10.—The water in
the Fraser, River has risen very fast in
the last few ilays; only a few'days ago
and steamers were in danger of getting
aground, but now old Frnser is booming
the highest known in so short a time at
this season of the year; but itis welcome,
ns it lessens the chance of high water
next mouth. His washing away badly at
the Lauding. Mrs. Harrison will have
to move the Valley Hotel at once. Mr.
Ashwell has his residence moving slowly along to Centreville, ho that our
Landing has a deserted-looking appearance, what with tho freight sheds all
torn down und houses moving. Sumas
Landing does not wash ut this stage of
tlie water, the current being almost still
there along the bunks.
We huve hud a fine shower of rain the
lust two days, which wns very welcome,
us the ground iu some places wus getting
quite dry. Fruit of all kinds promises
an abundant crop, as the trees were
loaded with blossoms.
A meeting of the Mainland Association was called for Saturday, May 3rd,
but not enough interest was taken in it
to make a meeting, so it was postponed
for one week, and I think will end with
the same result.
Mr. Corbould made u short visit this
week in the interest of his election as
member to Ottawa. There is no doubt
buthe is the choice in this section of the
district. I wont round with Mr. Corbould, and we visited most of the leading
men in this Municipality, nud they are
unanimous iu the choice of Mr." Corbould.
Mr. William B. Hall was married to
Miss Lizzie Glbbard, on Thursday, at
the residence of Mr, A. C. Wells, Rev.
Mr. Hall performed the marriage ceremony in tne presence of a few friends.
After the ceremony and congratulations,
the party sat down to a lunch such as
Chilliwack is noted for, fit for a king.
That health and prosperity be with the
happy couple Ib the wish of all.

NOW  AND THEN.
" Ambition olad In humility;
Bill'Us a cumin.m proof,
Thut lowliness is young iimhltion's ladder.
Whereto thu climlier upward turns his face;
Hut when he once attain!) the upmost round,
He thon unto the ladder turn- his back.
Looks In the clouds, scorning the base degrees
lly which He did ascend."
Enrroii Columbian—Sir: The politician is an animal composed of wonderous
parts, fearfully concocted and strangely
put together(nnd outside of a moss agate,
could not be compared to the likeness of
anything thut is in heaven above, or
that is in the earth beneath, or in the
waters under the earth, to lie intelligible
to mortal minds), so that iu proceeding
to analyse our subject, I beg to call attention to the fact that he is built up in
strata of black and whito, and so perfectly nre these opposite hues blended
together, that it takes n cultivated mind
to decide where the black leaveB off and
the white commences, and all we know
is that the white stratum leads off. This
is called the introduction and soliciting
racket, and is ushered in by a nicely
worded uddreBS, composed of appeals,
flattery and wild promises, soon to be
followed tip by going out ou the
warpath, and running amuck of the
"servant girls and the babies," Here
the stratum becomes a little streaked, and
finally dips into the black shades.
When he thinks that lie is likely to get
" loft," ho Hotn hio friends to Insinuate
that he is the favorite of the Government ; he is going to build u mansion of
palatial magnificence; or that he is
going to givo a set of hops in the sweet
"bye-una-byo." Here ho gets some-
whut mixed in his efforts, but tnkcB
fresh pointers and courage from his committee rooms, und makes u fresh start.
At laat ho haB scraped together enough
material to embellish his opening speech
und has screwed up courage to deliver it.
Now mark this partof the programme.
He tells how things are done, and how
they should be done, and how he would
do them if scut to do the business for
the people. Thnt he goes as their trusted
agent to transact business for them, their
style, at their bidding, to acquaint them
from time to time how their business
was progressing, and what was the prospects for certain measures (that his constituents were interested in) being carried through. And he will ever bo on the
alert to do, to say, for the good people,
"if honored with their trUBt, their
commands, and their confidence. He is
now to all outward appearances perfection, nnd is looked upon bv all hands as
a White Elephant. The whistle blows,
the train starts, and our brand new M.
P. vanishes from onr view long before
the echoes of the huzzas, the escaping
steam, and the vibrations of the band
cense to play around the lobes of our
ears; but we have confidence nnd go
home happy. A month has gone by;
not time yet, old boy; our Si. P. has
lots to do! Twomouths; well.lwonder!
Three! this thing is getting monotonous! Four, five, six, "Groat Scott!"
vou kick me, and I'll kick the next man.
'But hold! What's that, a telegram?
YeB. The Hon. Mr. Flooo-over, M. P.,
will be home to-night, and after a week's
rest, will be pleased to see his supporters and will explain somo of his views
aud impressions. But, in the mean
time, they can consult amongst themselves. And appoint a committee to
wait on him ut bis pleasure. You flip
up a copper, nnd you find what wus tail
iB now iieads, and thnt your white elephant has turned out blnck. And after
the interview the sentiments of the
meeting are:
"O, It is excellent
To have aK(niit'Nstrength, hut it is tyrannous

THE PROVINCIAL FLECTIONS.
Am announced by it Coi.ii.mihax " ox-
" tra" on Saturday night, the Provincial general elections are to lie held
without any loss of time, nomination
being fixed for the 30th of this month,
and polling for the 13th of June! This
will give just about threo weeks to tie-
complish the most important work of
selecting u "solid" ticket of six independent men for the Lower Mainland,
pledged to secure, at the earliest possible date, a fair and just redistribution for the whole Province, und to
oppose Hectionnlism—one of the grent
curses of the Province—wherever it
shows its hend. Having selected nnd
obtained the nomination of such a
ticket—no slight task, but one worthy
of the most devoted und earnest efforts
—there will just remain two weeks of
like earnest labor to elect the people's
candidates. This, too, will be no
slight tusk, but it cnu lie done if
the people of the Lower Mainland
are true to themselves — if they appreciate the true nature und significance of the crisis thnt is upon them,
of the principles that are Btake—if
they remember thut it is to themselves, nnd themselves only, thut they
must look for the securing of their
simple rights, which they me nt
present denied, and which will be
forever withheld from them unless
they cast off all shackles and arise
in thoir independence and might and demand them! "We would emphasize
the fact thnt the approaching Provincial elections constitute a most
momentous crisis in the aflairs of
the Province as a whole, of the Mainland, nnd especially of that portion
of the Province which for convenience may be termed the Lower Mainland. Upon the stand which the
people of this portion of the Province
tako with respect to the nomination and
with respect to the polls, at the approaching election, depends almost entirely
- whether wo are to continue to be tbe
' victims and tho slaves of the powerful
octopus of sectionalism having its heart
and its homo on the Island, or whether
wo shall sluy this avaricious monster in
its den, suul not only secure our rights
ns free men, but confer un inestimable
und lasting boon upon the Province
us a whole. The electors must
answer those questions, und we
believe they will do so in the right wny.
If they ure iu earnest, they will not lose
n moment in setting about tlie selection
of good, true, independent and pledged
men for their representatives, and they
will vote for none others. The electors
of Interior districts, if they are wise,
will do likewise. Yale District, at least,
we lielieve, may bo counted upon to
stand with us in this righteous fight.
FLY-CATCHING.
.Speaking of a possible candidal.1 for
parliamentary honors, our morning co-
temporary says he "goes on tho safe
" rule that molasses ns a fly-catcher is
" much preferable to vinegar." There
Is solid wisdom in this so far ns it goes.
If you limit ambition to the catching of
flies, no doubt molasses is what you
want; and if the people of the Lower
Mainland nre willing to be forever the
serfs of the Island—are willing to content themselves with the picking- up of
the crumbs that fall from tho table of
their masters iu Victoria—then let them
by all means choose tho "molasses"
policy; let them crook the pregnant
hinges of their knees, thnt thrift muy
follow fawning. But if, ns we believe,
they nro minded to stand up like men
in defence of thoir rights, then they
must tight for those rights! For eight
Hnd twenty yours Victoria has controlled the legislation of the Province,
und Victoria will continue to control It
just as long us she is allowed to do so.
It iB folly to talk of justice being done
by some bill to be passed after the
census. The power which refused us
justice in tho last House will do the
same again, and will continue to do it,
ns long as the people of the Lower
Mainland can be fooled or flattered into
allowing the wrong. Ask the pioneers
how it hns been in every year since '02?
Ask candid lnenwhoknow what Victoria
sentiment really is, and they will tell
you thut the "balance of prnvot" will be
maintained to the last gasp. One voter
on tho Island to-day counts for us much
ns three on tho Lower Mainland, nnd
will count for as much when the next
Bedistribution Bill comes up, unless the
people of tho Lower Mainland unitedly
determine to assert their rights. Thero
is one hope of justice, only one, und that
is to vote for no man, however able or
eloquent, who will not pledge himself to
make justice in this mutter his first aim,
the first article of his political creed.
We have nothing to hope for from either
Government or Opposition ns such—we
intiBt conquer by our own power or fail.
During the past week the heat has

HORSEFLESH FOR FOOD.
Quite lately, when a bill was introduced into tho Imperial Parliament for
the regulation of the sale of horseflesh for human food, the public
could scarcely believe that such
meat, in any large quantities,
formed a staple article of Bale in the
markets. In France, where the demand
for horseflesh has since 1865 been steadily
increasing, the law is most stringent in
protecting the consumer. The horses
must be slaughtered in special shambles,
and in the presence of a veternary surgeon, whose duty it is to certify that the
meat is healthy. Various other safeguards are insisted upon and rigidly enforced, In Berlin great success has attended the sale of horseflesh us an
article of human diet, and in the German capital supervision iB insisted upon
to ensure that the meat sold is fit for
food and free from disease. The horse
slaughterers, eighteen in number, nre
under police supervision. The principal
customers aro by no means the extremely indigent, but subordinate officials,
earning low salaries, and people obliged
to live on a par with them. In Italy,
horses intended for food must bo killed
in the public slaughter houses, and in
Austria the regulations enforced with
regard to this matter are as rigorous as
in Paris or Berlin.
Strange to say, it is only in England,
where un immense amount of horseflesh
is most likely sold as beef, mutton, and
veal, that tho regulations regarding its
salo for human food are altogether inefficient It is an ascertained fact that
Manchester buys thiB meat in large
quantities from Oldhorn and Bradford,
One of the Bradford slaughterers says
that a very siniill ptoportion of his
horses would be fit for human food—
about ono a month-—and he kills perhaps 1500 annually. Newcastle sends
large consignments of horse flesh to
London, ostensibly for cat's meat, but
really no doubt for human food. When
it is remembered how many horses
there arc in nnd around London, and
that large numbers of them die annually
nnd when it is borne mind that in the
metropolis there is no open Bale for tho
flesh of those animals, except as cat's
meat, it seems as though London might
aB well send coal to Newcastle aa Newcastle send cat's meat to London.
Ono day in December, 1884, a slaughterer at Barnsby was discovered to have
forty tons of horseflesh steeped in brine
ou his premises, ready for shipment to
Norway, at which place it was to be
manufactured into the toothsome German sausage. In London the lean horseflesh is skewered on to beef fat, and
then sold as beef.
When it is remembered thut expert
authorities are almost unanimous in
the opinion that healthy horse flesh
cannot be sold for human food at a profit, the absolute necessity of stringent
laws dealing with the sale of this
article is manifest. The Manchester
and Salford District Butchers' Association calculate that the carcass of n
healthy rough horse, killed for food,
would be at least 10}(Jd. oris, per pound,
that is as dear as tho primest mutton
or beef joints in the London markets.
At the present time horse flesh is offer.
ed for snle ut from 3d to Od. per pound.
A comparison of these figures conclusively shows the necessity of state regulation of slaughtered horses, for tho
protection of the consumer. There can
hardly be any question that the carcasses of diseased horses, asses and mules
are daily offered for sale ns beef, mutton, pork aud veal in Great Britain.
There can be no objection to the use
of horse meat if free from disease, ex-
cept, of course, that of prejudice. Sir
John Lubbock hus said that, no matter
how great the age of a horse, provided
it had u few weeks' rest, and that it was
fed up before being slaughtered, its
flesh should be quite fit for food, nnd in
no sense tough. Sir Henry Thompson,
one of the Queen's physicians, is of the
opinion that horse flesh tea is equal in
flavor and nutritive quality with the
best beef tea. Two such opinions deserve the highest reapect, and should do
much to disarm prejudice. At the same
time, the state cannot be;too careful in
protecting the diet of its citizens both
as regards disease and adulteration.

the upper lift forty feet. The distances
to which the boats arc to ho lifted
diminish as tho wator rises. Tho lift is
au adaptation of tho hydraulic dock in
use for somo years at the Union Iron
Works in Sun Francisco. Tho process
in therefore, not experimental. The
lower lift consists of sixteen cast-iron
cylinders, each thirty-one and one-half
Inches in inferior diameter and nineteen
foot sovon inches long, weighing
nineteen tons. In those nro rams hav
ing a full stroke of sevonteep feet
threo inches. Thoy aro placed in two
rows, forty-six foot apart, tho rams in
each row being twonty-twoand ono-bull
feot between centers. Thero Is a pint'
form or oradlo between these rows,
supported by chains from the
heads of tho rums. Tho chains
aro so arranged over shoovos ns
to givo the cradlo a speed and movement four times that of tho rams. A device for regulating tho admission of the
wator in each press so controls the
movement of tho rums as to maintain
thorn ut a uniform speed and the cruolo
In a horizontal position, notwithstanding
any difference In tho load on tho several rams. The cradle is placed tinder
tho boat while in tho wator. After it
is raised to tho top of tho lift this is removed, and tho car on which tho boat
is to bo transported on tho railroad is
substituted,
Tho railroad is a double-track ordinary gaugo road, tho tracks boing
twenty foot between centers, and tho
Iron weighing ninety pounds to tho
yard.
It is required of the car tbat it shall
transport with safety the loaded boat or
barge, and leavo sufficient flexibility to
pass ovor tho horizontal and vortical
curves of the road. Tho maximum toad
to bo carried is estimated at (100 tons.
Tho platform is 108 feot long by 38 feet
• wide. Tho lateral flexibility to onablo
the car to pass around curves is obtained
by tbe arrangement of the trucks.
Thore are thirty-four four-wheeled
trucks placed in two lines of seventeon
each.
The weight of the car is 300 tons. Tho
maximum weight is 600 tons, making
the total woight of the loaded car .lot)
tons Tho averago load per truck is
27,J-£ tons, and per whoel 7 tons. Tho
car, with its load, is propelled on tho
track by two 30*ton ordinary locomotives.
Tho boats are 105 feet long and 38
feet beam and 5 feet draught, weighing
with cargo 000 tons. Tho weight of the
cradlo is 184 tons. The total weight to
be raised in tho lift is l, .lis tons, and
the speed \% feot por minute.
Tho estimated cost of tho whole system, with equipment of two cars and
four engines, capable of passing eight

THE DAILY COLUMBIAN, SEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, MAY  12,  1890.
BALZAC'S METHODS.
Figaro"  Tells How He  Scribblid Off
"Cmar Btrotteaa."
Balzac's method of working waa eccentric. Belgravia says tbat when he
had well considered the subject upon
whioh be proposed to write he would
cover some thirty or forty pages with
ideas and phrases. These he would send
to the printer, who returned proof sheets
pasted upon large sheets of paper. The
work was then correoted.
On a second reading the forty pages
grew to a hundred, and so on, while on
the proof sheets new lines would start
from the beginning, middle or end of a
phrase; and if tbe margins were insufficient other sheets were added, until at
last tbe work was satisfactorily completed. A specimen of Balzac's "proof
has the appearance of a geograpical
map with its rivers, estuaries and lakes,
or perhaps it even more closely resembles a complicated railway system in
which the lines cross and recross each
other in a manner that would almost
bewilder Bradsbaw.
Tbe most graphic description of. this
realist at work is to be found in an
article in the Figaro of December 15,
1837, called "Tbe Misfortunes and Adventures of Caesar Btrotteau Beforo His
Hirth." It would appear that Figaro
promised tbe book for December 15,
und Balzac only began it on November
17. The printing press was prepared.
ltalzac immediately sunt in two hundred
sheets, "scribbled" In Hvo nights of
fever. "Evory one knows how ho
writes," Bays Figaro. "It was an outline, a chaos, an apocalypse, a Hindoo
poem. * * * The timo was short; no
ono could mako head or tall of tho writing, butit was transposed us nearly us
possible into familiar signs. The author
sent buck the first two proofs pasted on
enormous placards.
"It was frightful. From each sign,
Irom each printed word, shot a pen
stroke, gliding like a sky-rocket and
bursting at the extremity of a luminous
lire of phrases, epithets, substantives,
underlined, croased, intermingled,
erased and superposed. Its appearance
is simply dazzling. * * * The oillce
was far from gay. Tho type-setters
boat their breasts, tho presses groaned,
the proof-roadors tore their hair." Tho
proofs were sont baok aevon consecutive
times; and then a "few symptoms of
excellent French" appeared, and thero
was observed a certain connection bo-
tween tbo phrases; but the day—December 15—was fast approaching, and it
was folt that tho book would never appear. But Balzac and Figaro kept their
word with tho public, and "Coasar
BirOtteau" saw the light on the date
agreed upon. It was composed, written
and corrected fifteen times by the author in twenty days, in a lotter in
which §>■ speaks of an attack of neuralgia he says: "1 wrote 'Ciusar Birot-
teau' with' my feot in mustard; I am
now writing 'Lea Paysana' with my
head in opium."

THE  AMERICAN  FLAG.
A Condensed History of tbe Adoption ol
the Star* and Stripes.
The recent discussions concerning the
alteration of the United States flag, in
recognition of the admission of the new
States into the Union, naturally provoked a certain amount of inquiry Into
tbe history of the stars and stripes, The
general facts In regard to the adoption
of the National flag are more or less
woll known, including the much-debated
question aa to whether or not the emblem owes its present form to the faot
that the family arms of George Washington included the stars and stripes
that are now so familiar.   However this
may be, it is certain that the flag was by
act of Congress passed June 14, 1777,
established aa having thirteen red and
white stripes and a union of thirteen
white stare in a blue field, and tbe stars,
instead of being the six-pointed stars
of heraldry, as they are on our coins,
are, and always have been, the five-
pointed stara of Washington's coat-of-
arms, known in heraldry as "mullets."
The flag was, January li), 1794, decreed
by act of Congress to havo the number
of both stars and stripes changed to
fifteen, and this was tho flag thut flew
nt tho battles of Fort Mellenry and
Xew Orleans in tho war of 1813, and
whioh was sung of for tho first timo as
tho "Star-Spangled Banner."   By an aot
nf Congress passed April 4, 1818, the
lltigwas again changed finally, and It
was resolved that tho stripes should be
thirteen in number and that the blue
Held should contain as many stars as
thow might he .States in tho Union.
This much is generally known, butonly
a few perhaps aro aware that tho flag as
it  Is now  wus designed by Captain
.Samuel C, Reid, and thut the ono mado
by hia wife, a silken ensign of the present form, Hew nt tho masthead of tho
brig General Armstrong whon it was
destroyed by tho British squadron In
tho port of Fayal  in 1814.   Congress
passed a resolution of thanks to Captain
Retain 1851), nnd he died shortly after
in Now York.
It wus tho claim of his son, Colonel
Samuel C. Reid, now living and practicing as a lawyer in Washington, for the
value of tho ship thus destroyed in a
neutral port—a claim which lingered
for years and years beforo Congress
— which gave to the late David
D. Lloyd tbe groundwork of the
story of "The Senator," whilo
old Colonel Reid himself, to whoso
stubborn preseveranee the passage
of the claim was due, formed the original model for Mr. Crane's character of
Silas Donmsui in tho comedy. Colonol
Samuel C. Reid is suid to be somewhat
of a character in bis way, and it la certain that ho never tires of recounting
the details of tho action in which hts
father's ship was lost, and in whioh it is
claimed tho English lost over threo
hundred men and oflleers, while tho
American loss was only two killed and
seven wounded. The General Armstrong
was finally scuttled near the beach, and
subsequently flrod and blown up by the
enemy.—N. Y. Times.

the miller will not be drowned by tt non-

The Salmon Hun.
The continued heavy run of spring
salmon is a matter of surprise even to
the oldest fishermen on the river, and
the fact is becoming more apparent
every day that there is nothing in the
shape of a "spurt" about it, but a regular steady run. Last night the returns
were beyond expectation, considering
the high water, which it waa expected
would have the effect of somewhat curtailing the catch. Few of the boats (jot
less than 25 fish, while the majority
captured many more than that number,
and one boat netted 48 beauties, nearly
every one of which us handsome
spring salmon. The early sockeye run
is now on, nud several fishermen have
made good catches of these fish. They
are not more plentiful than iu former
years, and in n week or two will have
disappeared.
Prom New to Old Westminster.
Mr. A. W. Lundbom, who left these
shores on a trip to tho "old country,"
about the first of last month, hus written
to his friend, Mr. Jos. Armstrong, from
London, Eng., where he arrived on the
20th ult., just U% travelling dnvs from
New Westminster—10 days in' all, of
which 4 were spent. in New York, and
half a day at Niagara. This excellent
timo was mado over "the C,P.R. route.
Mr. Lundbom'fl letter expresses a sincere and patriotic longing for Westminster's sunny skies again, mid a determination to shorten his visit and retrace
his steps to the moBt charming and desirable spot he haBgeen, It is strange
hut truo, that the same fascination operates unerringly upon all who spend any
lime in this "gem of the west," and
particularly this favored part of it—no
one who hits sojourned here for any
length of timo can ever be content anywhere else,

The steamer Yosemite arrived from

Westminster the Tlace.
Mr. Wm. Reidt, a late well-known
citis.011, is in the city on n short visit,
having taken a run over from Portland,
Or., whero he has beeu residing since
last full. Mr. Reid reports a rushing
real estate business on the Sound and in
Oregon, and many inquiries for Westminster property. He has not seen
such a solid, self-support ing and promising town ns Westminster in his travels,
and, from his experience and observation south of the line, believes that property has only begun to advance in thiB
city and vicinity. ' Mr. Reidt made a
number of good deals this morning, on
both sides of tho river, aggregating well
up in the thousands, on property which
he has held for some time and which
had advanced largely iu valuo since Insi
fall. Mr. Reidt intends to return to
West minster permanently in a few
mouths. He has seen no place so desirable, us to salubriousness nnd future
prospects, iu which to take up his inuu-
lane abode.

Every lover of rowing should bo present to give his opinions aud advice;
there aro more skilful scullers in the
city than was at first supposed and every
man of thorn Ib quite enthusiastic over
tho proposed club. The article
ou rowing published in these
columns ou Saturday, excited very
general interest in the mutter,
nnd if tho knights of the sliding sent
only get together to-morrow evening,
elect their officers nnd appoint an executive committee the thing is practically
accomplished. For the vast majority of
the young fellows In town who formerly
belonged to good clubs iii England and
eastern Canada, life will bo still more
worth living in Westminster than over
it. was before if they can go down to the
club house of a morning or an evening,
get out a shell and have a good spin up
the rivor. There is a mile nud a huff
Btrctcji of almost still water directly
opposite tbo city on the othoi'B.do of tl-3
rivor, so the question of a practising
place for shells Is thereby comfortably
sottlcd, Every oarsman iu the city
should drop into the city hall to-morrow
evening.
A  Pulse Alirm.
A wild alarm of fire rung out from the
boll lower of the Hyack Hall at 11:30
o'clock last night, rudely awakening
half of our citizens from thoir beauty
sleep and causing those who hud not
retired to find their way down to tho
bull iu a very short timo. The locution of
tho fire wns in doubt for a time, but
ns it wus supposed to be somewhere on
Montreal stroet, a party of volunteers, by
direction of Chief Ackerman, commenced
the tedious ascent, determined to quench
the flames no matter bow  fiercely they
burned. When about half way up tbe
hill the party met several citizens rushing
wildly down town to ascertain where
the fire was. They were told the conflagration waB up on the hill, but would
not believe it aa they had just come
from there and all was' well. This news
stuggered the firemen for a moment,
but after a short consultation the march
was resumed, and when they reached
Queen's avenue their trouble wbb rewarded by a sight that fully recompensed
them for all the inconveniences they
had suffered in climbing the hill. Directly ahead of them, though some distance back, were huge forks of flames
darting upwards and "burning a hole in
the night." The flight was grand in
the extreme, but tho firemen had no
time to observe scenic effects, and pressed
onwards to the expected battle. As
they advanced the fire seemed to recede,
though it lost uone of its brightness,
and tlie hardy volunteers began to doubt
their ability to catch it. Finally an
opening in the treeB revealed the place
to the ordont extinguishers, and to their
disgiiBt they discovered a clearing fire
had beeu tho innocent causo of all the
trouble and excitement. Tbo march
buck to headquarters was made in perfect order, but in perfect silence.
Baltic of ItHtoclie.
Five yours ago to-day the battle of
Batoche was fought on the banks of the
Saskatchewan-—tbe lust decisive struggle
in the rebellion of 1885. Tho capture of
Ri.il a couple of days subsequent to tho
_.i;!»t virtually crushed tbo uprising,
although several shnrp encounters took
place between tbo troops and rebels
after that date. The fall of Batoche
and Clio capture of Riel disheartened
the halfbreeds, who quickly dispersed
to their homes aud abandoned all hopes
of ever making a successful stand against
tho whites. Tho IndiiuiB, however,
woro not so easily disheartened, and
tbe secret arrangements mnde between
tho different tribes to form a junction
and drive the whites from the great
plains would havo been temporarily
successful, but for the prompt manner
In which evory move was checkmated
bv tho troops in the field. The bold
attack on Poundmaker's camp by Col.
Otter, and his command, principally
mado up of the Queen's Own rifles, prevented this brave chief joining his forces
with thoso of the rebol general at Bn-
tocho, while the rapid march of tho
Winnipeg battalion of infantry to the
File Hills, and the driving back
of Star Blanket and his SB"
braves to their reserve, spoiled th_
game of Chiefs Pic-u-pot and Star
Blankot, and the Pnsqun Hill Indians
to form nnothor junction to sweep the
country south of Clark's Crossing to
Fort Qu'Appello. In the far northwest
the Winnipeg Light Infantry, tho 05th
Royal RifloB and tho Mounted Police,
under Major General Laurie, succeeded
in dispersing the forces of Big Bear, and
quelled the rebellion in that quarter.
After the battle of Batoche, General
Middleton marched with his victorious
troops, the gallant 00th RifleB, of Winnipeg, the 10th Royals, of Toronto, tho
Midland Battalion, tho Winnipeg Field
Battery, French's Scouts, Bolton's
Scouts and the Intelligence Corps, to the
relief of Prince Albert, nnd from there
proceeded to Battleford and Fort Pitt.
Tho march on Fort Pitt was the last
active move in the rebellion, and all opposition from the rebels having ceased,
the troops were shortly afterwards relieved from service and sent home.
The anniversary of Batoche, though
not celebrated on this Coast, will bo
duly honored throughout Manitoba and
the eastern provinces to-night, and
while tbe history of the light lives tlie
day will be remembered us one of which
every Briton nnd overy Canadian may
he proud. '

NUMBER 85.
TO THE ELECTORS
 OF	
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of tlie near
approach of the election to till the vacancy caused by tho death of oar late
representative (the mnch-rei.pci.ted D.
Chisliolni) and as I have stated in my
card to yon that I am n candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before you
some of niv views on the loading questions which I consider will urise in tho
near future for em ib.deration.
I have been asked what I mean when
I announce myself as a Liberal-Conservative; I reply, "That by nature and
education I am a Conservative, but a
residence of over 30 yoarB in tliis Province aud muoh intercourse with our
American cousins has had the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
mo liberal ideas, therefore 1 churn I am
n Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that party lines are not derlned in
British Columbia as they are in the older
provinces, I consider that our representatives nre not in duty bound to givo a
throwjh-lhick-and-thin Bupport to" any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
good measures which may be brought
before them, nnd to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own province in particular, and
flhotlld a measure come before them
which they consider in any way detrimental to the interests of this Province
they should take their Mand like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of cvery-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we 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 are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Fanning and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles are brought from tho States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and aro met with such heavy duties
that heads of families in this Province
pay more than ten to one compared to
their compeers iu Eastern Provinces.
We have had example to the point during the last three months. If we hud
not received u good supply from California there would have been a uieat
famine; as it is we arc now and have
been paying 25 cents per pound for mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the same state of
affail's is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for the last cloven years
our stock raisers are littlo better prepared to meet hard winters than they
were before, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
N. P. are the manufacturers. As « true
Britisher I should like to see "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of the
question,I would advocate "Reciprocity"
in many articles which are at present in' the Tarilf lists, as I think
it would be benellcial to both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go clown so deep into his
pockets to buy what he needs to eat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
have a revenue to carry on the affaire of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more and get at the pockets of the
richer classes who can better afford to
pay taxes.
Owing to the long continued sickness
of the late Mr. Chisholm, he was unable
to be in his place this session, and very
little during the previous one, so wo of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before the notice of
the House. Had he (Mr. Chisholm)
been in his scat, I do not think the Postmaster-General would have been left bo
much in the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Eraser as he seems to have been
when he proposed to cut olf the mail
subsidy from that important route, and
there are other places in the 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 wo •
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 1500
miles of territory, and when the census
returns ure in I think the necessary
number of population will bo found to
demand such additional representation.
The protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairio and
other places should rtceivo my earnest
attention', also tho works for improving
the channel at the Sandheads, in view
of the expected increase iu 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 feel should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through tho. Delta lands from the mouth
of the Serpentine to Fraser Itivcr, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
ono from the Eraser Kiver to Port
Moody, which hus often been suggested
to me.
Immigration, I consider, should bu
fostered, Suid encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coming horo fast
enough; I would not like to Bee a largo
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a baa uame.
Thero are many other matters I Bhould
like to touch upon, but it would make
thia address too long. I hope to see as
many us possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send due notice of time and place of meetings.
^During my long residence in the Province I have travelled through much of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, nnd have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
House iu a practical, buBiness-Hko manner.
Should I have the honor to be elected
I assure you I shall watch over the iu-
tcreats of this District faithfully and to
the host of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go as a true British Columbian and to do my duty ns such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.
