Gigantic Frauds.
Nkw York, Slay 0.—The World this
morning prints a four-column expose ut
the alleged frauds iu the construction
of the now aqueduct to supply this city
with water. The tunnel is not yet completed, though it should have been in
1888. Exclusive of land expenditures
this great work, with supplving dams,
has cost nearly 123,000,000, and the end
of tbe expenditures is not yet reached.
More than this, tho men who contracted
to do the work demand that the city of
New York shall pay them some ten
million dollars for repairing the work
which they Bhould have done according
to their contract in the first place, but
which they failed to do.

Sax Fbancisco, May 9.—Collector
Phelps has received from Secretary
Windom advices concerning the
landing of Chinese in transit, to'the
effect that those who are expected
to arrive in the China steamer either today or to-morrow will be allowed to land.
At first the secretary decided that only
those could land who had purchased
their tickets in China prior to tlie date
on which the information was sent out
that no moro transit Chinese could land
here. Tlie extension to the China's
Chinese is granted because the secretary
has been informed that the notification
of the new order was not received in
time in China. The recentruling, however, will be strictly enforced in future.
Attempted Murder.
Chicago, May 9.—Inspector of Police
Ebersold narrowly escaped serious injury Wednesday night by the explosion
of a torpedo. The inspector was going
home when a train obstructed his passage at the Rock Island depot on Harrison street, While waiting for the
train to pass a torpedo that had been
placed ou the track exploded with terrible violence. Particles of it struck the
inspector in tlie face, striking him
almost unconscious. He clutched the
gate till he regained strength and witli
much effort walked home. Inquiry iuto the cause developed the startling fact
that some one had placed a torpedo on
the track with full knowledge that the
inspector was waiting a chance to get
across. A man was seen to follow
Kbersold from the station and while the
latter waB standing at the gate,
rushed by him dropping the explosive
just in front of him. Who the man was
cannot lie learned. It is believed tlte
[dot was planned by some person who a
lew days did a similar thing while Inspector Kbersold waB ou a Wabash avenue car. While he was standing on the
front platform an explosion occurred.
The concussion was so powerful that the
car was lifted several inches from tlie
track. Ebersold's hat was thrown from
his head, Kbersold says the torpedoes
were those used by tram men to warn
a train of danger. He inclines to the
opinion that the explosions were pranks
of boys but the police refute this explanation.    _
The Hu.ite.le Overdue.
Sax Francisco, May 9.—Considerable
uneasiness is manifested iu shipping
circles for the safety of the German
bark J. II. 1 lusted?, Captain Reiuers,
lroimd from Victoria for London with a
cargo of salmon. The vessel has been
out 198 days, having sailed from Victoria
on October 23rd of last year. She hus on
board 50,094 cases of salmon, valued at
1330,908. Since her date of sailing no
information concerning her haB been
received.   ■
Joined the Strikers.
San Fhaxoisco, May 9.—Great excitement prevails among the striking iron
moulders, owing to the fact that seven
of the non-union men imported from the
east have left the Risdon and Union
Iron Works nnd joined the strikers.
The strikers claim and the fonndrymen
admit that the men who have left the
shops are competent men, nud their
leaving will prolong the strike,

AN IMPORTANT DECISION
llendored liy Judge Bole In the County
Court In ft Cue of Appeal.
In appeal, the case of the Royal City
Planing Mills Co. vs. Daniel White, evidence was heard and judgment rendered
by His Honor, Judge Bole, in the
County Court. Mr, A. J. McColl appeared for the appellants, and had been
instructed by the company on the appeal
to waive all technical objections for tlie
purpose of getting a decision upon the
main point, namely, whether the Act
applies to contracts for purchase, or
whether it is confined to agreements for
getting out logs upon lands in which the
person to receive the logs is interested.
Following is the decision given by Judge
Bole, and which explains the evidence
adduced in the case:
The facts of thiB case which comes before me on appeal from the decision of
two magistrates under the provisions of
section 25 of chapter 74, consolidated
Acts, 1888, appear to be as follows:
Ou or about the 5th day of September
1888, one Norman Stewart entered into
on agreement iu writing with the appellant company to sell to them a certain
fixed quantity of shingle bolts for which
they agreed to pay at a specified rate
provided that the shingle bolts were delivered within a time specified in the

A Terrible Crime*
Paris, May fl.—Josephine Hoegel has
been sentenced to penal servitude for
life for the murder of her eight year old
daughter. The child was a victim of
ill-usage und crippled by the kicks and
blows of its mother. It was compelled
to lio abed where it was frequently
drenched with ice water with its hands
and feet tied. Josephine actually attempted to crucify tho child, aud wns
finally successful in her efforts to stran-
f;le it. The woman narrowly escaped
ynchlng. 	
Killed on the Conga.
Brusbkls, May 0.—The news fs confirmed of the killing of Mr. Musy, the
commander of the French post at Bangui, ou the Mabongi branch
of the Congo. He is tho second
white who has been killed by natives in
the Congo basin. The first was the
comrade of Captain Rivier in his trip
last year across tho continent. It was
not conclusively known here till about
three weeks ago that Kivier's comrade
waa murdered. Musy wus killed with
twelve men of his station on January
Ilrd. He had left his post with many
native allies from tho Botumbf nnd
Juckobi tribes to chastise the village of
Bolanga for making slave raids upon the
Villages that wore th friendly relations
with the French. During the fight
which followed his arrival at Solnngn.
all his allies 'deserted him aud ho and
the 12 men of his station were left alone
surrounded hy enemies in overpowering
numbers. Musy kopt the savage*, at buy
until his ammunition was completely exhausted, and he wns
then killed. His mon perished
with hhn, and their bodies were eaten
contract.
It appears that subsequent to making
such contract the said Norman Stewart
employed some men, among whom was
the respondent, in getting out these
bolts, and he earned a sum of $08.40,
which was not paid and is still admittedly due.
No pay roll was kept and the appellants paid ' the contractor the whole
amount to which he was entitled under
his contract, and did not require from
him the production of nny pay roll, or
keep back the amount due by the contractor to respondent, nor do they appear to have had any notice of respondent's claim tilt after tjie contractor was
paid off.
The appeal might, perhaps, have succeeded on other grounds, but I am now
asked to decide one point, namely, was
the agreement in question within the
meaning of the act.
Tho section relied ou reads: "Every
person making or entering into anv
contract, engagement or agreement with,
any other person for the purpose of furnishing, supplying or obtaining timber
or logs by which it is requisite and
necessary to engage and employ workmen and laborers in tho obtaining, supplying nnd furnishing such logs or timber as aforesaid shall, before making
any payment for, or on behalf of, or
under such contrnct, engagement or
agreement, of any sum of money, or by
kind, require Buch person to whom payment is to be made, to produce aud furnish a pay roll or sheet of the wages
und amount due and owing, and of the
payment thereof, which pay roll or sheet
may be in the form contained in the
second schedule hereto, or if not paid
tho amount of wages or pay due and
owing to nil the workmen or laborers
employed or engaged on oi under such
contract, engagement or agreement at
the time when the said logs or timber is
delivered or taken iu charge for, or by,
or on behalf of, the person so making
Buch payment and receiving the timber
or logB."
In this case the contracts having been
reduced to writing makes it less difficult to arrive at a conclusion as to
whether its terms bring it within the
act or not.
It will be noticed that the agreement
in question is for the sale nnd purchase
of certain shingle bolts, not logs or timber. There is nothing on the faco of it
inconsistent with the theory thnt the
subject mutter of the contract was in
esse at the time it was entered into, and
in this connection it may be remarked
that the word "sale" is not used in the
act at all. And the first duty of the
court is to expound the law as it stands.
So from being a case where the language
of the act should bo modified to meet
the construction put upon it by respondent it appears to me that the omission
of the word "sale" is due, not to cnrless-
nessr but to deliberate intention.
The statute imposes a pecuniary burden upon persons entering into a certain class of contracts, nnd as such is
subject to the rule of strict construction
as it is a well settled rule of law that all
charges upon the subject must be imposed by clear aud unambiguous language, because in some degree they operate us penalties (Dunn vs. Diamond 4 B
and C 233; Doe vs. Snnith A Bing 153);
which rule of strict construction applies
to acts conferring exceptional exemptions and privileges or touching on general rights.
It appears therefore to me that I am
bound by the rule of strict construction
to hold that tho contract In question
herein does not come within the meaning of the act, more especially as to hold
otherwise would lie to cause an amount
of inconvenience and loss to persons engaged buying or Belling lumber, never
contemplated or intended by the legislature.
Independent of this I am disposed
to think that the uct only applies
to agreements for getting out logs or
lumber, especially as the head note of
the group of sections refers to woodmen's
wages, and that it is doubtful if the
manufacture of shingle bolts comes with-
the purview of the act,
The appeal is therefore allowed and
the order of tho court below set aside,
but without costs.

The   Victoria,   Saanich & WeiitniiiiHter
Hallway Still Alive, Kicking
and Vigorous
The Victoria, Saanich A Westminster
Railway enterprise, which has been in
a forced state of quiescence, so to spenk,
for nearly a year, is being now pushed
by its enterprising projectors with renewed vigor. Last summer, it will be
remembered, the scheme was brought
very prominently before the public, and
especially before the people of Victoria,
by two proposals thut were passed bv
the Victoria City Council, and voted
upon by the ratepayers of that citv, to
give substantial monetary assistance to
the project. The proposula took the
form of nn interest bonus by-law, whereby the city was to give the railway company a yearly bonus of interest at 4 per
cent., for twenty-five years, on 1500,000
of the company's first issue of bonds,
nnd a share by-law, empowering the city
to become a shareholder to a limited extent in the company. The former measure, it will be remembered, wub endorsed
by the ratepayers, in the face of a strong
opposition, by a small majority, and the
latter was defeated by a small majority.
The $500,000 interest by-law was decidedly the more valuable of the two,
however, and the railway company intended to prosecute the project without
delay on the strength uf the assistance
thus guaranteed. But this enterprising
design was frustrated for the time being
by certain hostile persons, principally
Capt. John Irving, of the 0. P. N. Company, entering an act to quash the bylaw, on technical grounds. This action
has hung over the company from August
of last year until the 2nd of April last,
when Chief Justice Begbie gave his decision, declaring the by-law lo be valid,
with the exception of some minor and
unimportant particulars. This vexatious
matter having been thus satisfactorily
settled, after causing a delay of nine
months, the promoters of the V., S. A
N. W. R, R. have cleared their decks for
another skirmish witli. the numerous
obstacles which stand in the path of all
great undertakings.
As noted in this paper the other day,
several of the leading promoters of the
scheme were in this City for two or
three days in the early purt of the week,
interviewing the Mayor and Aldormen
and other prominent citizens, witli a
view to ascertaining eventually what assistance Westminster City would be disposed to give towards the undertaking.
Knowing that the matter is almost certain to come before the Council and tlie
ratepayers in definite shape in the not
distant future, wo huve, for the public
information, inquired somewhat into
the details of tne scheme, und givo u
few particulars, which cannot but be of
interest to the* majority of our readers.
The company known as the Victoria,
Saanich A New Westminster Railway
Company was incorporated by a Dominion Act of 1880. The following are
the names mentioned in the charter,
who are ulso the provisional directors:
Hon. Amor DeCosmos, Hon. John Herbert Turner, M. P. P., John Grant, M.
P. P., Charles E. Redfern, jeweller,
Alexander Wilson, merchant, Alexander
Alfred Green, banker, and James Stuart
Yates, barrister-at-Iaw, all of the City
of Victoria, together with such other
persons us become shareholders in the
company.
The definite project which the company is empowered to carry out is to
construct, equip aud operate a main
line of railway from Victoria to Westminster (including a ferry of 2ft%
statute, or 23 nautical miles),and branch
lines fiom the main line, to Vancouver
City, to Canoe Pass, to n point at or
near Garry Point, aud to the international boundary lino, so us to connect
with the railway system of tho United
States at or near the town of Blaine.
There are othor supplementary powers,
of course, but those mentioned are the
essentia! ones.
Tho main line, from Victoria to Westminstor, runs nearly north and south
aud is as direct as possible, the total
length being 0(.'_ miles, divided into
three stages, as follows: From Victoria
City to Bwartu Bay, 20 4*5 miles;
frum Swart/. Bay to what is called tho
Point Roberts mole, 20:l., statute, or 23
nautical miles (this distance to be made
by ferry); from the Point Roberts mole
to Westminster City, 18 4-5 ■miles. Ou
its way from Point Roberts the line
crosses the Fraser about Laduer's (by a
ferry In the first instance, but eventually by a bridge) to Lulu Island, aud
runs up the centre of the Island, crossing tho North Arm by a bridgo a short
distance below this City, and thus
reaching its terminus and connection
here with tho C.P.R., by a nearly direct
line of 8 or 0 miles from the first crossing to Lulu Island.
The Vancouver brunch has its junction with the main line on Lulu Island,
close to the crossing of the hitter from
tho mainland. The brunch iu question
tukes u north-westerly course from the
junction, across Lulu Island and the intervening mainland to Vancouver, being.

The Blaine branch strikes out from tho
main lino just before tho latter crosses
the Fraser near Ladner's, and skirts the
shores of Mud nnd Boundary Bnya. in a
south-easterly sweep, until the international bouudury is reached nt Blnino,
this branch being about 21 miles in
length. The Cunoo Pass aud Point
Garry branches nre projected spurs of
perhaps 3 or 4 miles each, running
south-westerly from tho. main line to
those points near the river mouth.
Other short branch lines are contemplated on the Mainland as tbo needs of
traffic may Justify.
It Bhould lie stated that the surveys of
tho main Hue and branches have all
been carefully and thoroughly made bv
H. P. Bell. C. !•:., chief engineer, and 0.
E. Perry, C. E„ engineer hi charge, who
reported very favorably on the gradients,
curvatures, and the cluss of work
througohut. A timo table wnsalso submitted by the engineers, nnd tho following thno, it wuscomputed, approximately, could be made ou the respective purls
of the main line and the branches:
From Victoria City to Hwarta Bay, 45
miles per hour. The fast ferry steamer
from that point  to Point Robferts, for
passengers, mails, express and baggage,
is calculated to make 20 knots an hour,
thus covering the distance by water in
a little over an hour. The slower ferry,
which would have a carrying capacity
for 40 loaded freight cars,* would not of
course, make such fast time. From
Point Roberta to Westminster, at the
rate of 45 miles per hour. On the Vancouver branch, owing to the maximum
gradients, 30 miles per hour iB the rate
expected, while on the Blaine branch
the rate is figured at 45, as on the main
line.
According to these figures, the entire
distance from Victoria to Westminster,
00J6 miles, it is reasonably estimated,
could be made, allowing 33 minutes for
stoppages, in 2 hours 37 minutes; from
Victoria to Vancouver, 73% miles, allowing 33 minutes for stoppages, in 2
hours 50 minutes; from Victoria to
Blaine, 77% miles, allowing 20 minutes
for stoppages, with no stop at Fraser
River crossing, in 2 hours 37 minutes.
These figures are tbo result of careful
and scientific calculation, aud need not
be questioned. A scheme that would
bring tbe Mainland and the Island so
close together appeals strongly to the
imagination in tlie first place, and certainly could not but prove most convenient and beneficial to both sections. To
digress a little, it would undoubtedly
have a very powerful effect in making
them one province in reality as well as
name, a relation which, unhappily,
there is too much cvidenco to bIiow does
not exist nt present.
The entire scheme of tho projectors of
the Victoria, Saanich A Westminster
Railway is, beyond question, perfectly
feasible from an engineering standpoint.
The charter granting the necessary
powers haa been secured, and the only
obstacles to delay the fulfilment of the
undertaking (for we believe its accomplishment is only a matter of time) are
those of a financial nature, By the legal decision already referred to, upholding the $500,000 interest bonus by-law
passed by the City of Victoria in August
lust, that considerable sum will be
available under certain conditions. Before any such aid can be utilized, however, the company must organize, and
to do so 25 per cent, of its capital stock
of $1,500,000 (at $100 a share) must bo
subscribed, and ton per cent, of that
paid in.
As another protection to corporations
granting bonuses of interest or money
to the company, the latter, by
its act of incorporation, can only issue
bonds, debentures, or other securities in
proportion to the length of railway constructed or under contract to be constructed. A complete definition of the
company's powers, as well as limitations, will be found iu the net of Incorporation, Dominion statutes, 1889, chap.
48, read in connection with the Dominion Railwav Act, in the statutes of 1888,
chap. 29.
By this latter act it is provided that
the railway company must expend an
amount equal to fifteen per cent,
of its capital stock on the
work within two years of tho passing of
the act of incorporation, nnd have the
line completed nnd in operation within
7 years of that date. As the incorpora-
ion act of the V.S.&N.W.R.R, was assented to in March, 1889, the company
must do considerable lively and hard
work within the next year. The energetic-promoters say that they can have
the main Hue completed in twelve
months, and while this may be a little
sanguine, there is no dotibt that the
work will be vigorously prosecuted.
While the undertaking may be called
a Victoria one, in that it owes its inception to Victoria capital and Victoria
enterprise, and has its headquarters in
the Capital City, shares may be taken
in the stock of the company by any corporation oi- individual desiring to do bo,
and there is ample protection for money
so invested. So far from being essentially an Island project, nearly 75 per
cent, of the total length of railway truck
will be laid on the Mainland, as can be
proved from the figures in n former part
of this article.
Both iu the construction and the oper-
tionoftheV. S. &N. W. R. R., therefore, tho Lower Mainland, as well as the
Island, must reap large benefits. To
have the distance to Victoria, for passengers, mails, baggage and express, reduced to two and a half hours, in Hon of
the miserable service we have always
had to endure, aud are still suffering, on
this route, would alone be a most important boon to this City.
We certainly wish the" Victoria, Saanich A Westminster Railway project overy
success, and it will be for private citizens, us welt as the Corporation, to consider what substantial assistance they
can afford to lend to the undertaking
when its claims aud advantages shall be
definitely presented.
Starving California.
Washington, Mny 8.--Copies of the
appeal containing tlie signatures of 1,654
citizens of San Francisco, praying for
Federal aid, huve been received by members of the Senate and House. The
appeal is addressed to the President of
tho United States, and to the Senate and
House. It states that, owing to tho unprecedented bud weather, tlio evils of
competition, nud, niostof ull, to a vicious financial system, " the petitioners
find themselves and their families, with
thousands of their fellow-citizens, in a
condition of helpless destitution." " We
havo appealed to our local authorities
and fellow-citizens in vain," suys the
petition. " Comparatively nothing has
been done; a fow thousand dollars huve
been subscribed, giving work to some
thousands of the more fortunate of the
many thousands of sufferers among us.
This assistance apparently exhausted
the means of willingness of those who
could assist us. We turn with anxious
hearts to the Federal Government,
trusting, hoping that the Government
can and will aid us iu ourdiru distress."
Tho petitioners suggest thut $5,000,000
be loaned to tho city and county of Sun
Francisco until the* California Legislature can meet nud puss au enabling act
for tho citv and county to Issue bonds
covering tlio amount nt 2 per cent, per
annum, to be made payable to the
United States Government.
One paragraph nf the petition is as
follows: "In tbo name of God aud our
common Immunity, we humbly petition,
jour honorable body to grant us that
immediate succor our desperate strait demands. We confidently feol that the
power that armed and equipped u million of men for the preservation of tliis
Union, cun now arm nnd equip an army
to preserve its citizens from starvation.
Wo know that, should a common enemy
threaten this, our beloved country, millions of men would spring to arms, and
her boundless wealth would pour out
like water for her defence. We beseech
you to rememebor that there is no greater
conceivable enemy to tho nation than
poverty. The dignity of a nation's manhood, the virtue of'it nation's womanhood, pall before tho withering blight of
poverty. Truth, virtue and home becomo
more empty words, und nil are bartered
tooscape starvation's crnol grasp." A
circular lettor accompanying tho appeal
is signed by Wm. M. Wllloy, chairman;
Hi 1). McK'enloy, secretary, nnd Willium
Heinmann, treasurer. The circular is
headed "Headquarters, Executive Committee of the Unemployed."
There will be the usual lacrosse practice tliis evening on the puck, and a full
attendance of lioth seniors and juniors
is expected. Tho mon are requested by
the field captain tu be on-tho ground
early, so that a good practice may be
hnd before dark.

TH E COST OF BRIDGES.
Our morning cotemporary has dug up
a bridge specimen somewhere in Montana, having a total length of 820 feet
and a width of 18 feet, that cost $00,000
to build. Comparisons are worth little
in such mailers, without knowing many
particulars, aud especially the naturo of
the bed of the river, as well as the
depth of water, and the naturo and extent of tho traffic is nlso an important
consideration. As against 820 feet, however, we have 2010 feet at the narrowest
point on the river opposite this City,
mul the structure, with approaches,
would have to be considerably longer.
As to the width, good authorities consider that a bridge nt this city should be
24 feet wide, and also place tho probable
minimum cost of the cheapest substantial bridge nt $250,000. When the
sounding and testing of the river
bottom comes to bo done, it may be
found that the bridge would cost much
more. A bridge, nlso, at this point
should be built higher than 18 feet
above low water, which would add considerably to tho expense. This bridge
matter doesn't want to be approached
in the reckless, childish spirit tbat anything that would pass tor a bridgo on
paper will do. On the contrary, wo
should consider wisely and well, and
when we undertake the task see to it that
every precaution is taken that the
bridgo shall not only last, but giveevery
satisfaction and confidence iu its operation and use, and that it does not unduly interfore with or prejudice other
important interests. Our cotemporary
says; "By all moans let this bridge mat-
" ter be enquired into." And that is
just what the Council is making provision for doing in the most practical
and thorough way.
THE COMING CAMPAIGN.
Tins being general election yoar, and
the contest being, probably, not more
than two months removed, there can be
heard nlreudy tho Bound of preparation
in both the Government nnd Opposition
camps for the fray that is imminent.
Tho heavy Government battalions, of
course, "hold tho fort," with all that
implies. Tbey have everything to lose,
aud iu all conscience cannot expect to
gain much. It behooves them, therefore,
to be cautious and alert, a fuct which
thoir valiant men and leaders appear to
appreciate to the full, as they nre shifting and inniucnvenng, trying on
their armor, and putting it of!*, taking
"sighting shots," contemplating ambuscades, studying flank movements,
and some arc seeking safe positions before the trouble begins.
This latter appears to be the policy
decided on for and by the Hen, Attorney-General. Fearing, evidently, that
he cannot hold the field in Victoria City
against the "smokeless powder" of public criticism nnd the storm of ballots
from the "free and independent," the
redoubtable "Theo.," to quote our elegant cotemporary the Times, Iiub concluded that prudence is the better part
of valor and is going into the fray "be-
" hind the ammunition wagon," so to
speak; he hopes to capture the easy
rural constituency of Cowichan. To uso
a chess metaphor, which is germnin to
that of the battle-field, the Attorney-
General "hasn't got sand enough" to
play the quoen, but hopes to hobble
liack into his coveted position by u sort
of sidelong knight's movement. If the
peoplo of Cowichan haven't got a better
man, we wish the Attorney-General
success in his chosen gambit.
There is not a little speculation as to
the partof tho Hold in which the veteran commander-in-chief, the Hon. Premier; intends to "hoist his cbenc/cr,"
It is variously rumored that tbe favored
ground will be Vancouver City, Westminstor District, one of tho Kootonaies,
and Comox or oven "Trial Island" nre
darkly hinted at. But the Premier
keeps his own counsel. To mix metaphors again, while he runs his practised
eye over tho "board," bo undoubtedly
" thinks a grent deal," if he doesn't say
much. .Tust nt present the astute leader
is on a sort of "bishop's" tour through
the country, his ostensible objective
poin.t-being Donald. He will probably
knock over a few "pawns" before he
gets back, and further his general plan
of attack.
To speak plainly, if it had not been
for the unfortunate "redistribution"
episode, there is not a constituency ou
tho Lower Mainland that would not
have been proud to have invited the
Premier to make his"stampingground"
there. But that circumstance hns
vory materially altered matters.
While, in view of all tlie circumstances, wo may condone the Pro-
tutor's individual attitude nnd action
on that question, aud oven concede that
he made out a fair justification—not for
the bill; for it cannot be justified, and
tbo Premier himself condemned it—but
for tho course which ho chose of the ol.
ternutives presented to him; and while
It will be generally admitted tliatrit
would be in the nature of a public calamity If tbo Premier, with alt his experience, practice and acknowledged ability, wero retired from tbe councils of the
Province, for uny reason, at this time,
we cannot see that it is desirable, or indeed possible, that the Premier should
stand for or represent any Lower Mainland constituency In the next Parliament. We do not bolleve, in the first
' place, that ho could or would subscribe
to tho pledgos which we must nsk our
candidates to assume,'
As wo havo repeatedly stated since the
Redistribution Bill became a foregone
conclusion, flint part of tho Province
which bus been so outrageously wronged
bv thnt measure cannot afford to know
either Government or Opposition until
the reproach is wiped out, sectionalism
crushed, and right and just principles
established, whereby the Province shall
be made one united whole, and no section favored at the expense of others.
Neither the Government or the Premier
chose to stand or fall on those lines,
when the occasion presented itself. We
have no guarantee that either would do
so when the question comes up again,
as it must very soon, and the only Bafe
and self-respecting position for the Lower
Mainland is, therefore, one of absolute,
but reasonable, independence of both
Government and Opposition, until the
important Provincial question of Redistribution is settled ns it ought to bo and
must be.
As this article is necessarily incomplete, we shall continue the general subject in n future issue.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A story with a moral in it: Last
evening, writes a New York Star reporter I dropped into the famous place
kept by Justice Schwab. Ten years ago
he was fierce Socialist and owned nothing. At thut time he favored the division of nil property and the establishment of a new civilization. Upon the
blackbonrd in his front room wero ul-
wuys verses from such Socialist ie poets
as William Morris and Algernon Swinburne nnd quotations from the incendiary press of Europe. In the past decade Schwab has made a good fortune.
and is a now a fnt, comfortable citizen.
There are no poems on the blackboard
now and no quotations. In their stead
aro theatre posters and business advertisements. The people present nre no
longer hungry Socialists and wild-eyed
Anarchists, but well-dressed, rotund,
and prosperous people.
If William II. of Germany does play
a good many queer pranks, he appears
to be considerable of a humanitarian
philosopher after all. The continental
gossip of the Glasgow Herald writes
lately: What will the German Emperor do next? is now tho general cry.
He has dono so many startling things
already, und takes such un evident delight iu making men's tongues wug, that
nobody would be much surprised if he
were to propose a congress for universal
disarmament. Mon have alrendy become convinced that he is sincerely religious, and that he has no ambition for
bloodshed. A little time ago, wishing
to realize the sensations of a soldier on'
guard he put himself on duty for twenty
four hours in an extemporized guardroom within hiB own garden at Potsdam,
and stood sentry during fours spoils of
two hours each during that time. He
wore the uniform of a private soldier,
carried a rifle, nnd ate of the soldier's
ordinary. But unlike Peter the Great,
who did these things often enough in
real earnest—mixing with' thfe soldiers
nnd lying down beside them—William
II. took his little diversion all alone.
No officer came to relieve him; and, in
fact, only one or two persons of his en-
towage were aware of what he was doing until he had done it. When tbe
whole thing wns ovor he was asked how
ho had enjoyed standing sentry at night
nnd ho answered: "I was thinking all
the time bow many millions of poor
wretches have gone through the drudgery of militarylife while loathing it, and
have got killed in wars for the causes of
which they did not care a button."
Tho change of the official title of our
inchoate   prairie   provinces   to "The
Western Territories of Canada" remarks an eastern exchange, is a sensible
aud beneficial alteration. The old
designation of the Northwestern Territories was apt to convey erroneous ideas
which do not attach to the new name.
The point of the compass indicated was
really inaccurate, giving . ii notion of a
hyperborean situation nud surroundings not justified by the facts. Our
western territories do not He mnch to
tho north of the old provinces of Canada,
and havo not the severe climate that
they might be supposed, by thoBe not
well-informed, to possess. The towns
und agricultural settlements now forming on our _ prairies are on the same
parallels us northern France, Belgium
und Rhenish Prussia, which, to our
friends iu Europe will not give tho idea
of u very northerly situation. There is
the further advantage that the western
territories of Canada are less likely to
be confused with the Northwestern
Territories of the United States. That
the distinction should not be, overlooked
is desirable from a nationul point of
view, und to prevent would-be settlers
from being deceived. It Ib all tho more
important because the Northwestern
Territories of the United States really
have a fnr severer climate and are subject to greater climatic vicissitudes than
the western territories of Canada,
and terrible disasters or distress occurring on tho other side of the international Hue are too often attributed,
either inadvertently or by design, to our
western territories. It is welt thnt tho
cntisc of confusion iu simillnrity of name
Bhould bo removed.

ster.
SURREY.
5-Acre Blocks in the thriving Municipality of Surrey, midway between the
Cities of New Westminster, B. C, and
Blaine, Wash., at from $30 to $40 per
acre.
This property is situated on the Hall's Prairie road, near the
junction Of the Langley Koad, tho Yalo Road, and the Clover
Valley Koad, within 500 yards of the proposed station of tho New
Westminster Southern Railway. The land is high and dry, and
the soil is first-class. Surrey is ono of tho most prosperous sections of tho District of Now Westminster, and is at present enjoying quite a boom in real estate; so that purchasers of this prop,
erty will get the value of their money in good, rich, solid farm
land in a locality which at the same time promises an excellent

NORTH  ARM.
146 acres in Lot 155, near the North Arm Road,
about 21-2 miles west of the New Westminster City
Post-office, at $150 per aore.
This is line fertile soil, chiefly prairio, and lies well. It
has become a maxim that cities grow westward, and New Westminster is proving no exception to the rule. City lots wost of
Edinburgh Street, along tlio North Arm road, havo doubled in
valuo in less than a your, while aero tracts have, in tho samo
timo, in somo instances moro than trebled. When tlie proposed
extension of Columbia Streot to tho Westerly City Boundary is
completed, the North Arm will becomo tho host suburban section
of the City. Moreover, it is confidently expoctod by many that
tho route of tho Eloctric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
suction, Our shrewdest speculators are realizing the possibilities
of this portion of. tho City, and the many Bales of aore proporty
in tho vicinity roeently, indicate that land in tho direction of tho
North Arm is lookod upon as ono of tho bost plftcos for investment in the District.    Prices aro bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of
City and Suburban Property, at moderate prioes and

LULU ISLAND NOTES.
(From Our Own Correspondent.)
Lulu Island, May 6.—We have to
note several important improvements in
this neighborhood. The roads under
construction by the Council are advancing, as rapidly as possible. Large forces
of men are at work on every contract,
and by fall we will have good roads and
every convenience for travelling on the
Island.
Mr. Jones, butcher, has built a new
shop adjoining the store of Mr. W. 11.
London, where he is prepared to supply
the numerous customers he lias secured.
Mr. \V. Anderson, at Steveston, who also
bids for the patronage of the people in
tho same line, is doing a good burliness.
Mr. J. C. Furlong's general store is now
fully stocked with a very large und assorted lot of goods.
The opera house owned by Mr. W. H.
Steves, will soon he completed and ready
for entertainment., of all descriptions.
A serious accident occurred near
London's wharf on Sunday afternoon
last whereby Mrs. .Tune Daniels and two
children of Mr. Gerard were seriously
injured by being thrown from a buggy
driven by Mr. Gerard. We earnestly
hope that tho results will not be fatal to
any of the narties.
There will be an iiiterestingentertain'
ineut given by the congregation of the
church ut London's Landing, on Monday,
tlie 12th inst, iu Steveston opera House.
The choir from Laduer's Landing is expected to render ehoico music, and Rev.
J. W. Pedloy, B. A., of Vancouver, will
deliver one ot his popular lectures. The
subject will lie u practical and interesting one, and Mr. Pedlev's popularity
will draw a full house. Lunch will be
nerved ut 8 o'clock.   All are welcome.
The Kev. .1. II. White, of New Westminster, preached au able and practical
sermon in behalf of the Missionary Society of the Methodist Church two weeks
ago.
The L 0. Oi. T. lodge is flourishing,
and members are being added frequently.
Rev. Thou. Scoular is expected to
preach for Mr. Jaffray at the Presbyterian Church, Sea Islnnd, and London's
Landing, next Sunday.
The old Reaver is fast disappearing.
Every day some portion of her is carried
offjjy relic hunters. In time to come
these pieces of wood or iron will, no
doubt, be regarded with the same reverence that people now-a-daya look upon a
fragment from the rope with which
Judas Iscariot hung himself, or a portion of the dirt floor on which Ananias
breathed hia last. So those desiring
something rare to pass down to their
children, or their children's children,
had better go in time or they will have
to satisfy themselves with the rocks on
which the old boat stranded.— News-

The refreshing shower uf rain that fell
last night did incalculable good throughout the city and district. The continued
spell of dry and warm weather, though
very beneficial to fruit trees, had a rather bad effect on field crops generally, und
the shower last night is looked on as a
bleBsing which came to hand just in Ihe
nick of time.
The effects of the rise in the river in
the interior has already lieen observed
at this nohit. This morning the water
reached four inches above the highest
provious mark since high water set in.
Owing to the riso aud fall of the tide it
Is hard to notice the difference from day
to day, but that tho water ib still rising
slowly is an admitted fact.
Messrs. Gilley Bros, put upon their
vehicular list to-day for public hire ono

The vehiclo is a landn nnd can be covered in when necessary. It is very
handsomely painted and decorated, and

private carriage, as it is possible for a
public conveyance to lie. This fine
coach will meet all trains nud boats. It
was built at .T. Campbell's carriage factory, London, Ont., and wns imported
by Messrs, Reid A Currie.
The Now   Ilrunett* Hills.
The new buildings of the Brunette
Saw Mills Co. are very nearly completed. Their appearance Is most imposing
and their capacity immense. The buildings are so placed as to be convenient
for vessels loading lumber at the
wharves and thus work will bo executed
in tho most expeditious und sufe manner.
Nearly all tho machinery is iu placo,
and is of the latest and most approved
description, pnrt being specially imported from the east. Tlio company havo
enough orders on hand lo keep tne new
mills running at their utmost limit for
some time to come. As has beon often
stated Mie Brunette mills are very ud-
vantngeouBly situated for the loading of
vessels of deep draught. The water
along the front of their docks has an
average depth of thirty feet, so that the
.urgent ship that enters tho Frnser can
approach tne Brunette Saw Mill docks
with perfect sufoty. A large force of
men is at work on the new mill buildings and adjusting tho muchinery, and
the extension will probably be in running order iu about a month or six
weeks.
The (.Hy  I'on ml.
The ridding of the streets of vagabond
cows and stray horses is a mutter of
congratulation to the whole City, und
there are few good oitis.o_.Bi even those
who at Ilrst bitterly opposed the Pound
by-law, who would be sutislled to hoo
the old order of things restored. Pound-
keeper Murray has proved himself a
faithful servant since taking the position, and has also shown that the Council made no mistake lu the appointment. He has dono his duty without
fear or favor, treating all alike,
aldermen und ox-aldermen, rich
citizen and poor citizen. Probably tho
most amusing part of the whole business
is that out of tho seven cows impounded
four aro the property of aldermen or ex-
nldennon. Two worthy members of last
year's council, who pushed the by-low
through and conferred au everlasting
boon on the city by so doing, wore
among tho fli-Ht to sufFor, and it ib to ho
hoped they will bear with the trifling
flue, Imposed by themselves, with all
the quiet and loyal allogiouce which they
expected would be rendered to their law
making by tho ordinary ratepayer. On
Monday tbo crusade ogainHt unlicensed
dogs will bo inaugurated.

to be given each cannery on the Fraser

Another Fine Yegiel.
The steamer which Captain Terhune
is building for himself at Sapperton will
.not be long on tbe way now. Tbe
engines and boiler are being put in
place. They aro entirely new nud were
imported from the east and have the
appearance nf flrst-class machinery.
The hull of the little craft has been
much admired for the beauty of its outline aud flue finish. No pains have
been spared to make this addition to the
river fleet one of tlie best boats afloat in
these wuterB. Her engines are very
powerful, and it is expected that the
new bont will be as well known for hor
Bpeed as for her good looks. The exterior of the vessel has been tastefully
painted and she looks a very smart
specimen of boat-building, She will be
ready for tho water in about a month,
aud will be bo used in general rivet-
work.
The Medical Council.
The medical council of British Columbia was iu session at Victoria on Tuesday and Wednesday nnd concluded the
business before it. On Wednesday the
examination of candidates look place,
and other work of the council wub gone
through with. The examiners were
Drs. McGuigau, Milne, Smith, Davie,.
Lefevre and Hauington. Dr. Bolton, of
Fort Simpson, and Dr. Mills, who lately
arrived from Toronto, passed a successful examination.
The following officers of the council
were elected for the enBuingyear: President, Dr. Hnnington; vice-president,
Dr. W. A. DeWolf Smith, New WeBtminster; treasurer, Dr. Lefevre, Vancouver; registrar and secretary, Dr. G.
L. Milne. Considerable business having been transacted in tbe interest of
the profession, tbo council adjourned to
meet next November in the city of Vancouver. It was also decided that the
council will prosecute any person, not
being a duly qualified and registered
physician, who attempts to practice iu
the Province. The list of examiners are
as follows: Materia medica and chemistry, Dr. Milne; physiology and clinical
medicine, Dr. McGuigau; surgery, Dr.
Davie; diseases of women and children,
Dr. i-efevre; practice of medicine, Dr.
Hauington; anatomy and clinical surgery, Dr. Tunstalf; medical jurisprudence, Dr, Smith.
start until their work is completed—probably late this fall.
A "track" or rough descriptive survey
will be nil that will be aimed at, and tbe
information that will be given to the
Lands A Works department by Mr.
Poudrier on his return will enable it to
lay out the good land in the district explored in townships for settlement. It
will be the explorer's object to ascertain
the fullest possible particulars of the
character of the land, its adaptability to
agriculture, timbering, grazing and mining; the water powers, it possesses and
the number and extent of irrigation
streams, with all other valuable particulars.
From Bute Inlet tho party will strike
out to the north-west, traveling to the
east and west all through tbe country.
The latest survey, a very incomplete
one, of this district was made by Dr. G,
M. Dawson in 1876. One of the first objects of the present trip will be to block
out a trail from Bute Inlet to the interior, where ranching settlements have
during the last few years sprung into
importance. The proposed trail will
give these ranchers, a means of communication with Bnte Inlet, where by
means of the steamer Rainbow, trade
can be carried ou with all parts of tho
coast. Careful attention will be paid
during the trip to the location of desirable trails, and nothing will be left undone that might contribute to the utility
of the survey. Mr. Poudrier is a prominent'member of the Natural History
Society, and he will during his wild
tour keep over on the ulert for specimens nnd information calculated to interest and benefit its members,

-STOCK OF-
A Wonderful Antiseptic.
Mr. Robert Till, of Surrey, is possessor
of a secret process whereby he asserts he
can preserve lish, meat and game fur
an indefinite period of time. He states
that salmon treated by this process will
be found as sweet und fresh at the cud
of one year or five years as tbe day after
being killed. Mr. Till has visited several
of the lish establishments in the city and
prepared specimens for them. A * Column ax reporter called this afternoon nt
Mr. Lord's fish house, corner of Front
aud McKenzie Streets, aud saw two salmon tbat had been under the preparation over a week. Not tho faintest odor
of putrefaction could bo detected and
the only circumstance that denoted that
the lish wero not fresh, was the dryness
of the skin; all the gloss and slipperiness
of which were gone, and tbe fish still'and
dry. At Port A Go's. AbIi house half a
dozen lish wero seen which had been
treated with the antiseptic. Mr. Till says
tho fish thus prepared are better left
where the air can get at them, and at
the expiration of a year or two years all
that is necessary when the fish is wanted for the table is to wash it in cold
water and cook as usual. Mr. Till is a
carpenter by trade, and discovered thiB
remarkable process by experimenting;
tho substance ia not a liquid and. its application is very easy. He Bays tbat he
cun make cider practically sweet for
ever, and that he could prepare it at the
rate of fifty gallons an hour. He tried
the preparation on some veal some time
ago und at tho end of a mouth or two
found it fresh and wholesome. Mr. Till
is trying to get the great fish houses interested in his invention and will probably apply for a patent at au early
date.

George, a Coquilluiu Indian, wus arraigned on a charge of having beeu found
by Officer Dominy with intoxicating
liquor in his possession. Mr, McTier-
imn said tlio Chinaman who supplied
the liquor had struck tho right mun
when be encountered George. George
pleaded guilty and informed the court-
that that the Chinaman got the liquor
atHogan's bar. The chief- of police
said that in his opinion the only way to
stop Chinese from infringing the law in
this way was to give them the cure applied to wifo beaters and garroters, to
wit, fifty lushes on the bnro back well
laid on. His honor said the law did not
allow this, but believed it would have a
u salutary offect. Mr. McTiernan said
he would give his consent if the chief
wotUd lay them on. The chief's eyes
glistened with delight at the thought.
George was fined $25 and  two months.
The next occupant ot the dock wub
George Blackstock, a respectable looking mun, who works for Mr. Patterson,
the street contractor. Mr. Blackstock
said he had forgotten nil the circumstances of tho preceding night, but had
not the slightest doubt that he had been
very drunk indeed. He guessed the
charge was all right. Mr. Blackstock
then explained to his honor the way he
generally got "roarin1 fu'." He leaned
over the dock und occasionally clapped
his hands together und Bpoko iu n jerky.
Alfred Jingle sort of a way. "Natural
failing o' mine—human lintur' all over

His Honor, "that's enough, that will
do now; any more of those remarks will
materially ' increase Ihe line, do you
understand?" " 1 bcc," said Mr. Black-
stock, "I've been up here afore, yer

"Von are fined ono dollar ami costs;

The case of J. Nolan vs. C. Jeffrey for
assault had been settled out of court,
Clerk A. Smith informed thu bench.
The magistrate strongly objected to this
ship-shod manner of doing business, and
said he would not allow it in this court.
He hud issued a summons calling tho
case this morning and some one was
bound to appear and explain. Clerk
Smith suid tlie charges had all boen paid.
His Honor said that made no dilt'ereuce
nnd he wus determined to enforce the
rules of tho court, und he therefore enlarged the case until to-morrow morning,
when the case will be formally called
and if thero be no appearance a'warrant
will lie issued for contempt of court.

VKE CHUNO VS. T,  tf, JUNCI-AIH,
This cuse, which stood adjourned till
11 a.m. to-day, came up for hearing at
that hour.
Mr. Gaynor, for plaintiff, asked the
caso to Htand over till half past eleven
o'clock.
Mr. McColl objected as Mr. Hammer-
slcy had strongly objected to nny postponement on n former day. Mr. Sinclair was iu Victoria actually giving
evidence in a Supreme court case in
which ho, Mr. Sinclair, waB largely interested. A considerable time before
the trial notice was given to Mr. Ham-
mersley that Mr. Sinclair could not
attend owing to this supreme Court
case, and should have to ask for nn adjournment, yet Mr. Hammersley insisted on forcing it on and got to-day
fixed at 11 a.m. to suit him. Now lie
was not hero and he wanted au Indulgence after being verv strict himself.
Jl r. McColl said he would strongly press
that plaintiff be non-suited. After further discussion His Honor refused to
non-suit tbe plaintiff, but adjourned the
hearing to the next County Court here,
the question of costs being reserved.

CORRESPONDENCE.
THK   AHYMIM 1HSANTK1..
Editor Columiijax—Sir; Under that
heading in this morning's Truth there is
a ranting, raving, roaring despatch from
Montreal. Here ure some extracts: " A
discharged patient to-day affirmed that
to all enquiries soul by friends aa to tho
progress patients were making, one
stereotyped answer wub given without
nny restrictions as to accuracy: ' Your
friend's physical condition is excellent
but mentally there Is no improvement.
Paying patients fared best, but the groat
loss was among those confined In upper
stories and amongst those imprisoned in
dark basement cells."
After rending that despatch 1 could
not help saying; One of tho escaped
lunatics got possession of the telegraph
offlco; or the operator ia a fanatic full of
bigotry who knows that thu asylum was
under the charge of the Sisters of
Charity. However, I urn not surprised
by tho despatch, because I know that
tho vast majority of despatch mukersnre
as ignorant as pigs and a nuisance to
proof-readers; employing electricity to
circulate nonsense or bigotry is wilful
waste; but this is Hie age of gabble,
