The Eight-Hour Question.
Lo.snos, May 0.—Mr.Bradlaugh,M.P.,
a sterling friend of the workingman, but
opposed to tlie eight-hour law, haB accepted the invitation of John Burita, the
labor advocate, to discus the question
in public.	
Served Him Itlght.
Sax Fbancisco, May 0.—T. Ti. Mc-
Caiin, the Stockton druggist) who was
,wu iur HBJiuing immoral circulars
through tbe mails, and who fled to Illinois where he was captured, was sentenced by United States District Judge
Hoffman this afternoon to two years in
the state prison, with hard labor.
Vestibule Trains.
San Fhancisco, May6.—M. M. Stern, i
General Agent on this coast for the
Canadian Pacific, has received a circular i
announcing that, beginning early in
June, through vestibufed trains will be j
run between Montreal and Chicago over
the Canadian Pacific and Wabash lines.
This will be the first vestilmled trains
to be operated in Canada. This shows
the completion of a close traffic alliance,
covering both the freight and passenger
business between those companys. The
Canadian Pacific has found it necessary
to reach Chicago on account of the competition of the Grand Trunk on through
business, and the Wabash has been
enabled to meet the competition of the
Vanderbilt system.
Ploeds Feared.
Reno, Nevada, May 6,—The gates of
the new dam at Dalmer have been opened for fear the pressure might become
so great as to cause a break, as the
water had risen four feet in the lake
last' week. The volume, twenty feet
wide and six feet deep, waB thus thrown
into Truckee river which has also been
steadily rising for several days, aud hus
thrown out several dams and caused the
overflow of some ranches. No great
amount of damage has yet beeu done,
but the people along the river fear that
a few hot days or a heavy rain might
cause great damage.
The Moulders' Strike.
San Fiiaxscisco, May 0.—Late litBt
night twenty-two eastern moulders arrived in the city. Twelve of them were
taken to the Union Works and 10 to the
City lion Works. There was no trouble
whatever connected with the arrival of
the men, and the strikers did not interfere. 	
Defended His Mother.
l*i"n_Kit, Mo., May 0.—Jos. Can* and
his wife quarrelled last night over some
trivial affair. Carr raised a chair as if
to strike his wife when hiB son Charier.,
aued 13, who was standing in the vard,
threw a stone at his father through the
open door. The missile struck Carr on
the forehead between the eyes fracturing
the skull. He cannot live. The boy waa
arrcBtcd.	
Sad Accident.
West Chesteii, Pa., May 5.—Yester
day afternoon a carriage containing four
children and Mrs. John Fitzpatrick,
overturned and the team ran away. The
children were dashed against some stone
piles and one was instantly killed, the
other three being fatally injured. Mrs.
Fitzpatrick was driven insane by the
calamity. ,	
Starved Into  Sense.
Chicago, May 5,- At nearly all the
great manufacturing establishments the
majority of workers who wont out on
strike Friday, were buck at work to-day;
most of them under the1 conditions
against which they rebelled two days
ago. .
A Colorable Transaction.
San Fbancisco, May fi.—The crew of
the United States covette Marion, which
arrived from Asiatic waters a few days
ago, have presented the city with a set
of silk colors and pennant. Mayor Pond,
in a letter to the donors, says: "Onr
people will feel honored that their city
should have been selected as recipient of
so elegant and appropriate a donation."
Thursday, the 8th. has been fixed us the
date for the formal presentation.
Strikers Moderately Successful,
Chicago, 111., May 5.—In the planing
mill district the condition of the strike
and strikers in relation to the eight-hour
movement seems to be somewhat con-
fused. At some of the mills the men
have returned ou the old ten-hour basis,
while at other mills the eight-bour day
has been granted, with eight hours' pay.
Takon as a whole the eight-hour movement in the planing mills is a failure.
The men lacked organization, leadership
and co-operatlou. At the large packing
houses everything is quiet, peaceful and
busy this morning as usual. The daily
routine went on without interruption
and no trouble is anticipated.
A Loyal   Demonstration.
London, May 5.—Yesterday's labor
and radical demonstration will have a
sort of aristocratic aud Conservative
set-off next month. Tlie Conservatives
and Unionists are straining themselves
at every point, in order to ensure an
enormous demonstration on Coronation
Day, Saturday, June 28, at the Crystal
Palace. The executive committee having the matter in hand propose to hold
Buch a meeting aB has never been equalled. Balfour, W. H. Smith, Goschen
and others high up in the two parties
have promised to speak.
CORRESPONDENCE.
A CORRECTION.
EnrroB Columbian.—Sir.—This morning's Truth says: "And the Mayor and
those who act with him know, too, that,
a proposition bas been made to build a,
bridge of a very durable and substantial
nature with the amount of money now
in hand for that purpose, and 'before
they could expect the public to pay
much heed to their assertions in this
matter they Bhould at least have taken
the pains to submit Mr. Balfour's plans
to competent people to pass an opinion
on them."
I might ask where these competent
people arc to be found and if, when
found, they would pronounce on the
merits of a bridgo scheme without having before thorn trustworthy information us to the naturo of the river, bottom ; but it is sufficient to say at present that your contemporary must nonsuit himself ou his own plea, as the fact
ia that Mr. Balfour has not as yet laid
any plans before the Council, nor are
any such plans in existence.
Mr. Balfour gave a committee of the
Council, verbally, certain details of his
•V" i<.l,auflH>ed ,*»"** *'-;au"*  ""*
made public, but he has as far us any
definite proposition goes, simply said
that he will huild a bridge, 18 feet abovo
low water, aud not including approaches
ou the other side, for $160,000. This I
take to be a sort of preliminary est imate,
and I do not see how else it is to be
understood, especially as nothing definite has been said as to bonds or guarantee.
Surely it needs no argument to show
that ah undertaking of this magnitude
should be gone about with the greatest
caution, and that every means of obtaining trustworthy information should be
exhausted before the City iB committed
to such heavy expenditure. This is the
course proposed by the Council.
Yours, etc.,

Wait Coast News*
The tug Lome, Capt. Christensen,
with a pleasure party of ladies and gentlemen, the latter interested in the sealing industry, returned from Ahousett,
Uculot, and Clayoquot, yesterday morning. A delightful trip had been enjoyed,
the excursionists pronouncing the scenery along the various parts of the West
Coast touched upon, beyond description.
One of the party, who voices the sentiments of all, says that the pictures presented as each rocky point was rounded
and each peaceful bay entered, seemed
to be pages from Fenimore Cooper's
portfolio of word paintings. Thore was
tho wild grandeur of nature, unmarred
by the hand of civilization—the still
water for a foreground, the dark forest
rising behind, and tbe bluest of blue
skies over all.
There Ib very little activity at any of
the coast stations, other than that occasioned by tho calling of the north
bound sealing schooners. The Indian
crews are all willing to shin for Behring's
Sea, and find no difficulty in getting
work. The Teresa, which refitted at
Mr. Penny's station, left 114 skins; tho
Ariel aud tbe Black Diamond will ulso
refit at Clayoquot, and tho Beatrice at
Ahousett.
The sealers spoken and supplied bv
tlie Lome, which also brought buck
their catches, were the Viva, with 202
Bkins; Pathfinder, 306; Mary Taylor,
114; Kate, catch not given. The Venture was passed on the return trip, inward bound.
At Ahousett an old Indian chief was
mot with, who proved very talkative on
tho Behring's Sea question. He could
not, lie said, understand what was the
matter with tbe "King George people,
Their big ships and fighting men seemed
to oe all asleep, and whon their schooners were taken by the little American
fighting boat, when the King George Indiana had tholr canoes and sealskins
stolen, the King George Chiefs seemed
to bo still too sleepy to do anything.
He was beginning to get ashamed to let
people know he was a "King George.":
News was received at Clayoquot that
the C. H. Tupper bad been reported
since leaving San Francisco, with ono
hundred odd skins, sailing direct for
Behring's Sea. At Clayoquot ulso was
found the mime board of the lost bark
"Nellie May," which, with part of tho
wreckage, was Drought back to Victoria.
There had been no accidents or sickness
on uny of tho schooners.—Sunday'$ Colonist.        ^^^^^^^^^
Among tho debris carried down rivor
this afternoon by the flood, was a large
boom of piles. It sailed down stream
at a fine rate of speed, but was captured
opposite tho 0. F. R. wharf by two ven«
turesome wreckers.
waB put down.
Aid. McPhaden said the Belling price
of the goods damaged, not the cost had
been put in the bill; the latter only
should have been entered.
Aid, Sinclair wanted to know why a
drain had not been made there.
The clerk said he had been directed
to write Lowenberg, Harris A Co., when
the Bushby block wus building, advising that a gutter be constructed at that
point. They replied that the matter
would receive attention and no more
waB hoard about it.
His Worship did not think the city
should be liable when the owners of the
building were to blame.
The communication was referred to
Aldermen Sinclair and McPhsdon to report on at next meeting.
Council adjourned for ten minutes.
UBPOBTS.
His Worship reported on the C.P.R.
right-of-way through the penitentiary
grounds. Mr, Mara had taken hold of
the matter and looked after it at Ottawa.
The Dominion Government bad referred
the matter to Sir Joseph W. Trutch for
settlement, and the Government would
be asked next session to reduce tho rent
from $50 to $5 per year.
A resolution of thanks was pussed to
Mr. Mara for his kindness in looking
after this matter for the city.
bridge comm.ttkk.
Tho committeo appointed to. confer
with Mr. Balfour reported as follows
We, your committe, appointed to con
fer with Mr. Balfour re Bridge over the
Frasor River, beg leave to-report that we
met Mr. Balfour in the Council Chambers Committee room, Tuesday evening
last, und tbe Committee recommend tbat
steps be taken to ascertain the probable
cost of a sufficient bridge by taking
soundings and otherwise, und' thnt iu
the meantime the necessary stop" bo
taken to establish an efficient ferry, at u
cost not to exceed $20,000.
Aid. Johnson objected to the cost of
tho ferry, and moved that the cost of the
ferry should not exceed $5,000.
The report was adopted.
Aid. Hoy said a good ferry should be
purchased. He did not think a $150,000
bridge would be any use across this rivor;
lie did not think it would stay there.
Steps should be takon to ascertain tho
price of a really good bridge. A $5,000
ferry would be no better than tho K. de
K.; he would almost as Boon see a dozen
canoes employed as ferries as a ferry at
$5,000. A really serviceable forry would
cost $20,000. Again, this ferry could he
used to run to other points on the river
besides Brownsville; Lulu Island, aud
other points adjacent.
Aid. Sinclair was in favor of a good
ferry. He could not be in favor of building such a bridge as Mr. Balfour proposed, as lie thought it would bo a littlo
shaky, to say the least. He thought
that $15,000 was all wo could afford just
now for a ferry.
His Worship suid there was nothing
definite about a forry; enquiries would
havo to be made, and he hoped it would
not cost more than $16,000. Ihey could
certainly get as goon a one for the money
as possible.
Aid. Shiles said ho was, of course, iu
favor of a bridge, but the one proposed
was not suitable for tho placo. And if a
ferry such as Aid. Johnson proposed
wero procured,t hen if we could not get a
bridgo tho result would be wo would
havo neither bridge or ferry whon tho
winter came.
Aid. Johnson said ho wanted a substitute for the K. do K., but not for tbe
bridge. They wore like school boys who
hnd a pocketful of money nnd thoy were
afraid it would bum a bole in their
pocket.   Mr. Balfour hnd made the only
business proposition regarding a bridge
and it ought to be treated with due respect. This ferry question had been
sifted to the bottom but the bridge
question had not been so dealt with; he
was speaking from considerable knowledge in regard to a ferry and it would
not do here.
Aid. Shiles objected to Aid. Johnson's
language in regard lo the roport of the
committee.
Aid, Johnson replied that the committee bad thrown their whole being
into pushing.this ferry upon the people.
He then read the following resolution:
Moved by Aid. Johnson, seconded by
Aid. Smither. that the Board of Works
be instructed to obtain and lay before
this Council plans and specifications for
a traffic bridge from a point within the
city limits before tho extension of 1888,
suitable for such structure, aud that
may be selected by tbe citizens, to a
suitable point on the south side of tho
river, und to employ such assistance as
may be found necessary for that purpose
and thut the Dominion Government be
notified of our intentions iu the matter.
Aid. Sinclair repudiated the assertion
that tho committee had pushed tliis re'
port on tbe Council,
Aid, McPhaden said he was prepared
for a $10,000 ferry, but not a more expensive one. tie was not in iavor of a
cheap bridge. He believed the peoplo
would vote a $250,000 bridge if necessary,
but if a $20,000 ferry were put on the
people might not feel like voting so much
for a bridge. He believed it would be
advisable to ask assistance from the
Dominion and Provincial Governments.
His Worship disagreed with the statement of Aid. Johnson regarding tho
pushing of tho ferry upon the people.
Tbo committee hud gone to Portland to make enquiry about a ferry,
not about a bridge at all. But
as they were there they had made
every enquiry regarding both and had
made au honest and true report of their
experience to the Council and people.
He thought it most unjust and unfair -
of Aid. Johnson to make such a statement,
Aid. Johnson said these were merely
his impressions.
His Worship said that did not make
the assertions any less insulting and injurious.
A lively discussion took place upon a
question of receiving'an amendment before the motion wished to be amended,
was received.
The report was adopted ou tho casting
vote of His Worship.
Yens: Shiles, Sinclair, Hoy, Lyal,
Nuys: Johnson. Batchelor, Smithers,
McPhaden.
Aid. Hoy asked for further time for
the committee on the subsidy for a
steamer service.   Granted.
The Board of Works reported recommending that the following tenders be
accepted for street work: John Patterson, London street, $2,500; John Patterson, Mary Btreet, $1,500; that tho tenders for Tliorne Road lie laid over for a
mouth.
Thoy further reported that after
examining Moody Square found that the
place is not suitable for a pound enclosure and that they had secured a lot
from Mr. Sully on Georges street, the
lot being sub-lot 27, lot 11, block 7, and
that they hud appointed Mr. Hugh Murray, poundkeeper, at a salary of $75 per
month, Mr. Murray to supply his own
horse aud that the city clerk be instructed to have ono hundred copies of the
pound by-law printed iu a condensed
form, and tbat a notice be put in the
papers warning owners of dogs that after
Saturday next dogs not having tags will
be impounded under tbe by-law. Report adopted.
Aid. Smither moved that the Real
Estate Tax By-law be read a first time.
Further time was granted for the second reading of tbo Corporate Leases Bylaw.
Another week was granted for reading
of the Street Poles and Wires By-law.
The Railway Loan Appropriation Bylaw was read a second timo and committed, Aid. Sinclair in the chair. During the reading Aid. Johnson rose and
said he wanted, it understood right there
that he would vote against this by-law
in every particular; it was a most infamous' thing, and be hoped when it
came before tlie people they would deal
it such a blow as would crush such
measures out of this place altogether.
His Worship took the worthy alderman severely to tusk for his remarks
about "infamous." He charged Aldermen Johnson aud McPhaden with trying to blind the public, but he was determined they should not do so. Aid.
Johnson hnd evidently got the bridge
maggot into his bonnet nnd could not
get it out. There had been no attempt
to force tho ferry upon the people.
Committee rose and reported tho ov-law
complete.   Report adopted.
The Street-widening By-law was read
a first and second timo and committed,
Aid. Shiles in the chair.
His Worship moved, seconded by Aid,
Hoy, that the by-law be passed as read.
By-law passed as read.   Committee
rose and reported the by-law complete.
Report adopted.
The Slashing and Clearing By-law was
read a third time and passed, and ordered to be published according to law.
Moved by Aid. Hoy, seconded by Aid.
McPhaden, that the Railway Loan Bylaw be published in Tub Columbian and
the Street Widening By-law in Truth.
Carried.
Moved by Aid. Johnson, seconded by
Aid. Smither, that the Dominion Government be notified of this city's intentions in the matter of a bridge across
tlio Fraser River.
His worship said, referring to Aid.
Johnson's motion regarding the bridge,
that it was not in order and had better
ho made to read "as soon as possible"
instead of at some definite time.
Aid. Hoy thought it would be better
to lav it over for a short time.
Aid. McPhaden said the water was almost too high now to take soundings for
a bridge.
Aid. Johnson—Oh, that was expected,
—all in the game, all in the game.
(Laughter.)
Moved by Aid. Lyal, seconded by Aid.
McPhaden. thnt Dr. de Wolf Smith be
appointed health officer for the present
year.   Curried.
His worship thought thut it would be
well for the Board of Works to again
cult for tenders for tho improvements to
Thome Road.
Aid. Johnson gave notice that he
would at next meeting introduce a bylaw providing for a public market.
Aid. Smither gave notice that he
would at next meeting introduce a bylaw establishing polling places for the
vote on the two by-laws to be submitted
to the ratepayers.
Council adjourned ut 11:25 p. in. A
vory large audience was present during
the proceedings and at several times
during the evening showed their approbation of the business by applauding.
Interior  Weather.

DISINTERESTED ADVICE.
THE DAItV COLUMBIAN
TUESDAY  BVBN1N0. MAY 6, Wflfl.
ADVANCED A STAGE.
As will bo seen by tho report of the
Council proceedings elsewhere, definite
and wise action was taken Inst night in
the matter of the river crossing problem,
the majority report of the committee on
the subject, to the effect that an efficient
steam ferry Bhould be put on the river,
the cost not to exceed $20,000, being
adopted.
Two by-laws wore also introduced, the
"Railway Loan Appropriation By-Law"
and the "Streets Widening By-Law."
the substantial provisions of which will
be found on another pngo (the by-laws
themselves will bo published shortly),
by which it will bo seen tbat tho Southern Railway bonus refund of $155,000 Is
proposed to be Apportioned toward certain valuable and necessary public
works, the ferry and tbe street improvements, and an ample appropriation to
make soundings for a bridge, among
others.
These by-laws, which will be submitted to a vote of the ratepayers iu due
order, also contemplate the withdrawal
or annulling of the $80,000 Loan By-law
lately passed, but for which no debentures have yet been issued thus keeping the debt of the City and the rate of
taxation within the lowest possible
bounds, while still providing for the
carrying on of many necessary and beneficent public Works and improvements,
that will contribute largely to the gen-
jjral prosperity, greatly enhance the
value of property in all parts of the
City, and consequently raise our credit
and in every way vastly augment our
borrowing capacity, at advantageous
terms, for any necessary or desirable
objects iu the near future. We shall
take occasion, after* the by-laws have
been published, to touch upon the meritB
of the various detailod objects towards
which it is proposed to apportion the
railway bonus refund.
A BRACE OF QUESTIONS.
We are glad to note that our interior
cotemporary, the Kamloops Sentinel, is
going to take a whole week to answer
the "brace of questions" which we propounded for its consideration on the redistribution question on Wednesday
last. Owing to The Columbian not
coming to hand, it says, in its last
weekly issue, until Saturday morning
(the Sentinel's day of publication), "we
" are unable to reply in this issue, but
V can assure our cotemporary tho ques-
" tions will receive due consideration in
" our next issue," Huving ample time
to look into the matter thoroughly, we
shall expect the Sentinel to answer wisely and well, and to the point, without
evasion or shift, Lest the Sentinel should
mislay its files of this paper, we repeat
the "brace of questions," as our cotemporary has facetiously termed them,
not merely for its especiul benefit, but
as a sort of standing challenge to any
ambitions conundrum cracker in the
Province.   Here they are again:
Upon what good grounds should 7,111
voters on the Island, similarly situated
and circumstanced, but embraced in
less area, and contributing less to tho
revenue than 0,656 Mainland voters, be
given SIXTEEN representutives, while
the latter are allowed but SIX ? Beforo
the "redistribution," the representation
of the two sections indicated by the
above figures was, respectively, THIRTEEN and FOUR. When an opportunity was given— and the reasonableness and justice of such a course (if
there is any meaning in the words) can
not but be apparent to anyone—why
was no( some Blight attempt made to
equalize this glaring disproportion, instead of aggravating it?
We shall be glad to receive answers
from the World, and likewise from the
Colonist, as well as from the Sentinel. The former journal, whioh
characterized tho Redistribution Bill in
advance as the "foulest gerrymander
"scheme ever perpetrated in any coun-
"try," just as soon as it could decently
do so, folded its arms and relapsed into
a song of seraphic resignation worthy of
a better cause and an altogether different sort of occasion. The World may be
perfectly sincere in dropping tho matter
with a big sigh, with tbo vague hope
that everything will come around all
right "four yoarB from now," when tho
Mainland will have such a preponderance of population, etc., that its claims
can no longer be ignored (these, in effect, were tho comfortable arguments
with which tho World dropped tho redistribution question like a hot potato
almost as soon as it took It up.) We
should, like, however, to revive our co-
temporary's flagging interest in the
question, and thus invite it to take part
in tho competion, just to "keep its hand
in," so to speak. Surely, tho "foulest
"gerrymander schemo ever perpetrated
"in any country" is a subject upon
which the readers of the World would
like to hear a little now and then, especially when tho majority of them happen to have their homos and their interests in that section of tbo Province
most discriminated ugninst.
The Colonist is vory glib in construing,
misconstruing, and distorting the utterances and statements of this paper on
the redistribution question. In fact,
that sort of "argument" appears to be
its sole stock-in-trade whenever It approaches the subject. If it will undertake to answer, "straight," the problems
that we have put to the Sentinel, it will
not only add interest to the competition, but will have something to keep it
out of mischief for a little while.
Brace up now, you organs, nnd tackle
that "brace of questions."
Tub Vancouver NewAdvertiser occasionally goes out bf its way to give disinterested advice to the people of this
City on matters on which it is imperfectly informed, and which it would do
better to leave alone altogether.   But
this is a weakness of the Nem, and it
will probably never learn just how really
ridiculous it makes itself in its meddlesome offlciousness.   The News discusses
tbe question of bridge vs. ferry in an offhand, abstract sort of style, and decides
that a bridge is what the people of Westminster want, and expresses surprise
that there " can be so much hesitancy
' as to the course that Bhould be fol-
1 lowed."   " Still more surprising, it Ib
' to find," adds the News, " that thero
' are some who claim that a ferry is to
' be preferred to a bridge.   Apart from
' any consideration of the respective
' cost of the two things, there can be no
' question as to the superior conveui-
' once and facilities for traffic which  t
'' bridge affords over a ferry."   Most
sapient News. A Daniel, verily I
No one, so far as we know, has attempted to argue that a ferry, abstractly
speaking, is to be preferred to a bridge;
but there are bridges and bridges, and
circumstances alter cases. Tbe editor
of tho News-Advertiser would doubtless
like to take a trip around the world in a
steam yacht, but due regard for the welfare of his creditors and his own nersnn-
al finances might induce him to take
steerage passage in an ocean greyhound
instead. A large loan for city improvements Is being mooted by the Vancouver civic authorities just now. Abstractly speaking, it will be a fine thing, enabling street and other work to be carried on that otherwise could not be
undertaken; but the News calls a halt
and demnnds a more economical administration of civic finances.
The Newt is very willing, however,
apparently anxious, that the "twin
city" Bhould rush precipitately into
an expenditure greater than it can
afford at present for a bridge that, looked
at in the most favorable light, would bo
simply an experiment (which would require nearly two years to demonstrate)
as a means of affording safe transit for
traffic across the river, and as an undoubted obstruction to navigation (taking the definite bridge scheme proposed
by Mr. Balfour) would go far towards
offsetting any advantages that it might
possibly confer, if everything went right,
over a proper ferry crossing.
We wonder if it never strikes the News
that its officious but only partially considered and ill-digested articles on subjects affecting this City are an insult to
the intelligence of its Westminster
readers. No one can help admiring the
persistency and industry with which
our Vancouver cotemporary sifts the
civic affairs of the "terminal city" down
to the minutest detail whenever a question of civic expenditure Is before the
public—even if the prosiness and egotism of the screeds are somewhat tiresome—and it is noticeable that its influence is always thrown ou the sido of
economy, but this only serves to make
the contrast more glaring, and to give
rise to suspicions that there is more
than a disinterested "nigger in the
fence," when we see the same paper go
out of its way and assume a position of
cureless and reckless liberality with respect to the money belonging to the ratepayers of the "Bister city."
We don't like to think so, but it looks
as if the Newt would like to see the people of Westminster involve themselves
In doubtful schemes, prejudico the navigation of thoir splendid river and harbor, impair their credit, and do all
sorts of foolish and suicidal things. But
we can assure the News that the people
of WestminBter will do nothing of the
sort. Thoy know better. They will
look before they leap, and will be content to walk before attempting to run,
knowing this to bo the wisest course in
the long run.
In justice to the News we must add
thnt we are glad to seo that the representative of that paper in this City takes
a much wiser view of tho brldgo-ferry
question this morning than hia chief did
yeBtorday.

OFFER FOR SALE  FOR A LIMITED TIME,
at the undermentioned Prices, the following
Properties on terms to suit.
SAPPERTON.
Lots in the Sub-Division of Lot 2,
Suburban Block 4, from $200 per lot.
These lots are mostly cleared, and are very sightly, commanding an unsurpassed view of the Fraser River in one direction, and Queen's Park and the upper portion of the City in the
other. This property is only about one quarter of a mile from
the Brunette Mills, and is the best locality in Sapperton either for.
residence or speculation.
Western Addition.
A few blocks and lots in the Western Addition to the City of New Westminster, Sub-Division of Lot 172, formerly the White Estate.
This sub-division, consisting of 600 lots, was placed upon the
market by us a short time ago, and so eager were purchasers to
bjy that the entire 600 lots were sold out within ono month. We
ire now offering the above property at slightly advanced rates on
behalf of former purchasers. Those who missed the chance of
b.lying at first prices have yet an opportunity of investing at
prices that cannot fail to yield a good profit. We believe that
this is the best speculative property in the City of New Westminster.
SURREY.
5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Municipality of Surrey, midway between the
Cities of New Westminster, B. C, and
Blaine, Wash., at from $30 to $40 per
acre.
This property is situated on the flail's Prairie road, near the
junction of tho Langley Koad, the Yalo Road, and the Clover
Vnlloy Bond, within 500 yards of the proposed station of the Now
Wostminster Southern Railway. The land is high and dry, and
the soil is first-class. Surrey is ono of the most prosperous sec
tions of tho District of New Westminster, and is at present enjoying quite a boom in real ostate; so that purchasers of this prop,
erty will get tho valuo of their money in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality whioh at the samo time promises an excellent
field for speculation.
NORTH  ARM.
146 aores in Lot 155, near the North Arm Koad,
about 21-2 miles 'west of the New Westminster City
Post-offloe, at $160 per aore.
This is lino fertile soil, chiefly prairie, and lies well. It
has becomo a maxim that cities grow westward, and New Westminstor is proving no exception to tho rule. City lots west of
Edinburgh Stroet, along the North Arm road, have doubled in
value in less than a your, while acre tracts have, in the same
time, in some instances more than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to the Westerly Oity Boundary is
completed, tho North Arm will become the best suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expected by many that
the route of the Electrio Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
section. Our shrewdest speculators are realizing tho possibilities
of this portion of the City, and the many sales of aore property
in the vicinity recently, indicate that land in the direction of the
North Arm is looked upon as ono of the best places for invest
ment in tho District.   Prices aro bound to advance rapidly.

COBRESPONDENCE.
MR. BURNS' STATEMENT.
Editor Columbian,—Sir: I Bent a
communication and alao went to the
Council chamber last night to have the
actions of Chief Pearce inquired into,
and the action of the Chairman of the
Board of Works in moving to have the
Chief's side of the question explained
was a false one, as the Chief's statement
was not correct, and I was surprised to
bear the Chairman of the Board of Works
screen him. I was present at. the Coun*
cil, but was not asked to reply to the
mis-statements of the Chief ot Police. It
was intimated to me by a councillor that
the thing would be hushed up in the
exact way that it was, as it was little
use iu trying to get redress under tint
present management, but I went to the
Council meeting to have the assertion
proved, and it was proved to me.
Is there no way in a free country that
a man can get his equal rights, and must
private citizens be assaulted aud hampered by self-inspired guardians of the
law.
I hope this matter will be looked into,
and if the Chief is right and is using his
authority with no partiality, then sustain him; if not, discharge liim, and
save the city's fair name.
K.   iil'HNfl.
MR.   BELL  CORRECTS   TRUTH.
Editor Columbian—Sir: Will you
kindly publish the following communication, which T shall ask Truth to print
to-morrow morning, us it is important
that the falso statements complained of
should be corrected as early as possible:
Editor Truth—Sir: In your issue of
this morning I read with surprise the
following, concerning the nine-hour dav:
" All the contractors have observed tne
letter of the agreement with possibly
one exception, that one beingK. B. Bell,
who insisted on paying his men at tho
rate of 30 cents per hour and let them
work nine or ten hours, ns they saw
fit."
This is entirely incorrect. I have not
required ihy men to work more than
nine hours aud, in fact, have insisted
that they should not. I have not paid
my mechanics with 30 cents per hour,
but have paid, and intend paying, the
best wages to good men.
I am not nware of any dissatisfaction
on the above lines with any of my men.
They wore unwilling to strike but were
anxious as I was to have the affair settled, which has been done so far as I am
concerned—the terms'of the agreement
the strikers required being exactly iu
accord with my present arrangement
with those working for me.
Who your informant is, and how he
came by such erroneous information, I
do not know, but trusting that the misstatements were unintentional, as I suppose yours were, I invite him to satisfy
himself aB to the matter bv inspection
of my pay roll.
Further, I saw nothing of tho agreement it was claimed Iwouldn'tsign, and
did not know of its existence till after
the Btriko was declared.
Yours trulv,
R, B. Bell.

The operations of the watering cart
yesterday afternoon and evening gave
universal satisfaction. The effect of the
moistening lasted all through to-day and
was a great comfort to all whose business calls them to Columbia street.
It is surprising where all the stumps
and trees come irom that float past the
" city all day long. This is only another
evidence of the vast extent of the country and its illimitablo resources. The
water is intensely cold, the effect most
probably of the melted snow and ice
which are swelling the current to twice
its normal size. The water reaches
higher point every day.
Band practices at the drill shed arc
illuminated by means of a lamp chandelier suspended from the ceiling. The
band is making great progress- Their
fine new instruments are most satisfactory in evory wnv, and the frequent
usage they get is giving them the desired

By the 24th of May the band will be able
to "toot" with faultless harmony.
The illustrated lecture to-night in Her
ring's Opera House, on the manners and
customs of tlie Japanese by Dr. Cocking,
lately from that country, promises to be
a most interesting entertainment, and
should be patronised by everyone who
wishes to improve his knowledge of that
strange land. The lime light dissolving
views will be one of the principal and
most interesting features of the lecture.
That old eyesore, humorously dubbed
the public library, will Boon, if all goes
well, be replaced by a substantial brick
building, part of which will be devoted
to the purposes alleged in the title of the
old barn now occupying the valuable site.
But even in the new structure the absurd
is not to be allowed to depart, for, while
the Columbia street side will be devoted
to a public library, tlie Clarkson street
section will bo a police station and
quarters.
Martin Moore and Thomas Mitchell,
two drunks who had been found by tho
police sleeping among the docks on
Front street last night were fined $5 nnd
$2,50 and costs respectively. Capt. Pittendrigh, who occupied the bench, said
this kind of thing had to he put a stop
to, and we did not want drunken fellows
sleeping around iu all corners of the
- city. As this wns the prisoners' first an*
penrance lie would let them off lightly
this time. _________________________
A Large Order,
Mr. Geo. B. Cross, representing the
Ontario Rolling Mills Co.. and the Dominion Bolt Co., two weeks ago closed the
Bale of all the fish-plates, spikes and
bolls necessary for construction on tho
WeatminBter Southern Railway from
Brownsville to tho international boundary. The salo was effected through Mr.
Nelson Bennett direct, and the terms
of the contract call for tho delivery of
the whole material bv Juno 1st. The
material amounts to about 250 tons, nnd
two special trains will he necessary to
convey it to the coast.

A special dispatch to Tm: Columbian
from Barkerville, says a fire broke out
in the English church this morning,
and in spite of the. efforts of the fire
brigade and many willing hands, the
edifice was consumed. Tho firemen
worked hard and at times in great
danger of their lives, but their efforts
were in vain, and the flames slowly
gained headway and destroyed the
building. The church was insured for
f.1,000. but this amount will fall far
ehort of covering the total loss.

Pouud-keeper Murray has got down to

thero are a great number running at

satisfactory to know that the pound haB
been established at lnat, and it is pretty
certain that the institution will be managed to the satisfaction of the majority

A deputation of the directors of the
Victoria, Snanich and New Westminster R. R., waited on the Mayor and a
number of the City Council thiB afternoon nnd laid before them the particulars of tho scheme, for the purpose of
ascertaining the assistance tho City of
Westminster would be Inclined to lend
the project. They explained that they
intended to commence the construction
of the road without delay, and that it
may be running by the end of the year.
Tho deputation claimed the company
wns in possession of all the necessary
powers to construct the railroad and
ferry, and they propose to cover the distance by the new line between the two
cities, 66}jj miles, in two hours and
thirty-seven minutes.
The Mayor replied that he would lay
the matter before the council, and take
steps to ascertain what assistance the
City was prepared to give.
Quick and Effective.
It is worth the long walk up tlie hill
to Moody square to witness the operation of blowing up the stumps as carried
on in that section. The other night a
very large stump about 25 or 30feethigh
and with exceedingly tough roots, was
fitted with a package of Judson's extra
strong blasting powder. The match
being Bet every one retired to a safe distance. There was a dull rumbling noise,
a cloud of dust, earth and stones, and
above all the big stump, shot skyward.
The stump went up perfectly straight to
a great height then overbalanced and
came down with a terrific whack near
where it had started from. The roots
were torn in pieces and the trunk split
nnd shattered its whole length, making
it an easy matter to break it up into the
necessary small pieces for carting away.
The operation is comparatively safe and
iB very effective In clearing the ground
of stumps that would otherwise be impossible to grub up without enormous
labor and expense.

A Fine Graft.
Capt. Geo. Cooper's new steamer is
being fitted up rapidly and begins to
look liko a fine boat. The boiler has
been put in and a good deal of the machinery has been placed ready for fastening down. Capt. Cooper calculates
that ne will be able to operate his vessel
at about 100 horse-power, as tlie engines
which he is putting in are very powerful. The engine-room is placed well forward which will give the boat a better
grip of the water and not have her head
stuck out of the water and her stern
buried to the fender, as is too often the
case with small steam craft, Tho vessel
is built ou the model of those steamers
which ply between Glasgow, Dublin and
Liverpool, through the Irish Channel,
and a boat that can stand' thoso waters
can take every other with ease. This
style of boat is not common on this
coast and some have expressed doubts
as to the seaworthiness of a boat on
those lines. But those who have spent
a night in the Irish Channel during n
stiff nor'wester in the middle of December know what immense advantages a
long narrow deep boat has over a broad-
beamed short boat. Capt. Cooper expects to have his vessel ready for sea iu
about a month. She will carry two
masts and will be able to set quite a
spread of canvas. The boat was planned, built, launched, fitted and will be
navigated by Captain Cooper; she is
therefore not only a curiosity of Fraser
River marine, but an oxnmple of what
indomitable perseverance and energy
can do.

The Converted Bonui.
The following is the gist of the Railway Loan Appropriation By-law: $82,-
000 for streets and improvements; $20,-
000 for the ferry; $1,500 for the preliminary soundings nnd surveyings for
the bridge; $5,000 for a rock crusher:
$4,000 for the extension of Columbia
street and procuring the right of way for
the Southern Railway; $2,500 for protecting and improving the pleasure
grounds; $4,000 to the credit of the general revenue of the city, being the sum
paid out of the general revenue to purchase the ferry charter; $20,000 for the
erection of a suitable building on lot 2,
block 14, iu the city, and the equipment
thereof with a public library, reading
room, lock-up and police offices. The
by-law will be submitted to tho people
in due course nnd will come iuto operation on Juno 10th.
Under the "Street Widening Bylaw," for the widening of Columbia,
Clarkson, Lome and McKenzie streets
$10,000 of the Railway Loan will be appropriated. It is the intention of the
Provincial Government to build a courthouse on the vacant space bounded east
and west by Mackenzie and Lome
streets respectively. It waB in view of
this fact that the City Council decided
to spend the surplus of the $16,000,
which amount waB considered too much
to spend on Columbia and Clarkson
streets, on Lome and MacKenzie streets.
These various appropriations make together tho whole of the Southern Railway Bonus of $165,000.
oral public, though sorry to Bee building operations stopped at this pressing
time, are strongly in sympathy with the
strikers, and are not at all backward in
expressing the hope that they will come
out of the struggle with flying colors.
Between noon and 4 p.m. the list of
contractors agreeing to the conditions of
the strikers was enlarged by the addition of the following names: Turnbull
& Working, J. F. McKenzie, Archibald
Bros., S. C. Hill, R. F. Bonson,
J. Forfar and Lord, Rowo A Wellwood.
This leaves only three firms of contractors holding out, the above names comprising nil but that number.
Granite MouumeiitH.
A Columbian representative paid a
visit to Mr. A. Hamilton's marble works
to-day, and inspected a number of specimens of Scotch granite monuments late
ly received. The small vacant lot next
the ^ueun's hotel haB been used aB a
yarn, the floor of the shop at the corner
of Church and Columbia streets, being
scarcely Btrong enough to support the
immense weight of the stones. One of
these, the main section of a monument,
weighs one ton aud a half. There are
several others that weigh nearly as much
and no floor could bear tlie weight of a
dozen of them, Tho goods are in Peterhead red and gray granite, and Swedish granite, of a peculiar dark, red gray
marled appearance which looks extremely handsome. Every taste can be suited
in grave stones from this lot, ns there
nre obelisks, shafts, blocks, urns and all
other favorite styles of cemetery ornamentation. The carving was done at
Peterhead, Aberdeen, nnd is faultless.
All the stones have a glass polish,
and, needless to say,- look superb.
The consignment camo out by tho barque
Earl Derby," and was nearly six months
on the way. In the marble shop some
beautiful specimens of carving, executed
by Mr. Hamilton and his assistant,
arrest the attention of every one who
visitB the shop. Connecticut blue and
New Hampshire white marble seem to
be great favorites with the public;
Italian or Carrara iB probably too expensive to be within reach of the average
Surse, but Mr, Hamilton haB some aplen-
id specimens on view, Tho demand
for Scotch granite is increasing enormously, and the beauty and durability
of the stone make it a most desirable
material for grave decoration. Considering the vast distance it comes, the
prices asked for the finished monuments
are surprisingly small.

The Inournlona of tha Prater.
Most of our readers are familiar with
the fact that in the vicinity of Chilliwack and Sumas the Fraser River has
of late years become gradually diverted
from its'proper channel and has made
damaging inroads upon the alluvial
lands on its south bank, thus not only
destroying acres of valuable property,
but nearly ruining the channel for navigation. The most alarming feature,
undoubtedly, about the whole matter ia
the fact that the evil in botli respects
mentioned is a progressive ono, constantly increasing in seriousness, and
those who have mado careful observations on the ground declare that there
are grave fears thnt the river will break
through at a certain point and find an
outlet south of tho international boundary line.
Mr. Wm. Hall, nn old and well known
resident of Chilliwack who called on us
Bttveral days ago, took this view of the
case. Ho stated that at the Sumas landing, where tho river has made a long and
deep cut into tho bank, it had only
ono hundred yards farther to go when
a considerable drop in the laud level occurred, and a steady fall from that point
south was apparent. This being the
case, it is not difficult to see that' the
serious catastrophe anticipated above
might readily occur.
Mr, Hull has his own views about the
proper remedy to apply to check the devastating inroads of tho river, and his
ideas certainly havo common sense to
commend them. He deprecates all attempts to protect the river banks by
piling but believes the correct plan is to
turn the river back into its old channel
again at a point above where tho mischief is being wrought. This he quite
reasonably allows, can be done effectively, and comparatively easily by blasting vast quantities" of rock from
Chilliwack mountain, which abuts on the
more recently formed channel, thus
forming a wall or jettv of rock across the
new channel and forcing the river to
seek its old nnd natural course.
Mr. Hall's suggestions Bhould receive
the careful consideration of the Dominion engineers who, it is to bo hoped, will
speedily look into tho matter.

Tho Weekly   Clone Season,
Tho Department of Fisheries haB
changed the weekly close time for salmon fishing to 0 a, m, Saturdays until 6
S. in. Sundays. The close time in the
rat order issued by the Department this
year waB from 0 p. m. Saturdays until 6
n. m. Mondays. Shortly after tuis order
was issued The Columbian pointed out
that tho new regulations would force the
canneries to work all day Sunday, and
representations to the same effect were
.submitted to tho Department by Mr.
Thos. Mowat, Inspector of Fisheries, and
the salmon packers ns a body, and the
request was made that the timo be
changed. The Department saw the
wisdom of the change and mado the
order granting it, Regarding tho license
fee, no'change has been made, nor is
there likely to be. The Inspector of
Fisheries has been busy to-day apportioning the licenses, and the packers
will be notified immediately of the number they will be entitled to. Although
little has been said on tho subject of late
it is not expected there will be further
friction between the can ners and the
Department.      _______

THE CARPENTERS' STRIKE.
The Strike Still On hot Many Contractor!
Have Agreed to Tertna,
The carpenters' strike is still on, but
tho position of affairs to-day iB somewhat
altered. At a meeting held in the
Orange Hall last night it was decided to
hold out until tho nine hour system was
adopted by all contractors, but to give
permits to men working for contractors
who would sign the short hour agreement and wages schedule.
Before 12 o'clock to-day the following
contractors had signed: W. D. Purely,
Wilson, Matheson A Co., A. Cederberg
A Co., S. G. Tidy, T. M. Crowe, R. B.
Bell nnd D. Murchie. Permits to tho
employees of the abovo contractors were
at once issued and work was resumed by
these men at 1 o'clock. Out of the 200
carpenters working in the city it is estimated that less than a dozen stood
aloof and refused to join with the brotherhood. The rate of wages fixed for
first-class workmen is |3 per day—not
by any means too high.
The strikers have behaved very quietly and acted judiciously since work was
stopped, and their pickets havo performed their alloted duties in a most unobtrusive manner. No strong pressure has
been brought into use, and the half
dozen men not joining with the brotherhood havo beon left quietly nlone to
work out their own salvation,  The gen-

NEW WESTMINSTER, B. 0., MAY 6, 18^0
NUMBER 80.
TO THE ELECTORS
—or—
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of our late
representative (the much-respected D.
Chisholm) and as I have stated in my
card to you that I am a candidate for
that honor, I will now lay before you
some of my views on the leading questions which I consider will arise in the
near future for consideration.       *
I have 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' years in this Province and much intercourse with our
American cousin., has had the effect of
changing many of my views, and given
me liberal ideas, therefore I claim I am
a Liberal-Conservative." Owing to the
fact that party lines are not denned in
British Columbia as they are in the older
provinces, I consider that our representatives are not in duty bound to give a
through-thick-and-thin support to any
party, but they should go to Ottawa prepared to give a generous support to all
good measures which may be brought
before them, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province iu particular, and
Bhould a measure come before them
which they consider in any way detrimental to the interests of this Province
they Bhould take their stand like true
men and vote against it.
I am opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from tbe centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of overy-day
me 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 in many cases the articles are
better adapted to our needs than those
brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming aud Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles are Drought from the States, although the duties are so heavy. Again
regarding our food supply; we do not
raise enough to supply our wants, and
are obliged to cross the border for it,
and are met with such heavy duties
that heads of families in this Province
pay more than ten to one compared to
their compeers in Eastern Provinces.
We have had example to the point during the last three mouths. If we had
not received a good supply from California there would have beeu a meat
famine; as it is we are now and have
been paying 25 cents per pound fur mutton, which is more than ordinary mortals like to pay, and the same state of
affairs is likely to obtain again after any
long and severe winter, for in spite of
"Protection" for the last eleven years
our stock raisers are little better pro-
pared 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 a true
Britisher I should like to Hee "Free
Trade," but as that seems .out of the
question,I would advocate"Het'iproeitv"
in many articles which are at present in the Tariff lists, as I think
it i 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 eat and
wear. I am aware tho Government must
have a revenue to carry on the affairs of
the country, but I would have "luxuries"
pay more and get at the pockets of the
richer classes who can better afford to
pay 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, j.o we of
this District have been practically unrepresented, and our local wants have
not been brought before the notice of
the House. Hud he (Mr. Chisholm)
been iu his seat, I do not think the Postmaster-General would have been left so
much iu the dark concerning the necessity of regular mail facilities on the
Lower Fraser as he seems to have been
when he proposed to cut off 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 thnt gentleman's earliest attention,
I hope that in the near future our
Distriot will reach that point that we
may look for it to be divided and receive another representative. At present I think it is the largest constituency
in the Dominion, extending over 1600
miles of territory, and when the census
returns are in I think the necessary
number of population will be found tu
demand such additional representation.
The protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places Bhould receive my earnest
attention, also the 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 ull 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 the Delta lauds from the mouth
of the Serpentine to Fraser Itlver, also
to enquire into the question of cutting
one from the Fraser River to Port
Moody, which has often been suggested
to me,
Immigration, I consider, should be
fostered, and encouraged judiciously.
Just at present it is coming here fast
enough; I would not like to see a large
influx pour in at once, as many would
be disappointed and go away disgusted
and probably give our glorious Province
a bad name.
There are many other matters I should
like to touch upon, but it would make
this address too long. I hope* to Bee aB
many as possible before tne 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, and have
noted its growth and requirements,
therefore, I feel fully competent to bring
such matters before the notice of the
House in a practical, business-like manner.
Should I have the honor to be elected
I assure you I Bhall watch over the interests of this District faithfully and to
the best of my ability, not forgetting
that I also go as a true British Columbian and to do my duty as such.
Yours faithfully,
WM. B. TOWNSEND.
