Tuscola, Ills., May 31.—Seven school
children were bitten yesterday by a mad
dog at St. Joseph, thirty miles northeast of here. The dog died a few minutes later in convulsions. The parents
of the children became greatly alarmed
and telegraphed D. C. Hostetter. of this
place to bring the mad stone in his possession to them. After bis arrival the
stone was applied to each of the wounds
in question, nud it adhered in each
case. '___

was found unconscious iu a lodging

The Ontario Election*..
Toronto, May 30.—Four members of
the next legislature ure already returned, namely: Premier Mowat, Op-
§osition leader, Mr. Meredith, Mr.
Ivans Jereaj, of Prescott (Reformer),
and "Mr. A. F. Wood, North Hastings
(Conservative). In the cases of Messrs.
Mowat uud Meredith it was so arranged
by the two parties, in the other 'cases
i men were particularly strong in
their ridings, and opposition was useless.
In Brockville, Hon. Mr. Fraser is opposed only by an Independent Liberal.
In North Essex two Liberals and a Conservative are iu the field, and the seat
probably will be carried by Sol. White,
(Conservative). In Dufferin, strongly
Conservative, there are one Reformer,
one Conservative, one Conservative
father's candidate, and ono Equal Rights
man. In East Durham the contest is
between A. Meredith and au Equal
Rights candidate. Three Conservatives
win fight for the first place iuGreuville,
aud two in Card well. In cast Kent,
and the two Lambtons, there are Liberal, Conservative, and Equal Rights candidates. In South oxford, Dr. Mackay
is opposed by an Equal Rights man only
in Nipissing, a new constituency, the
contest is between two Liberals. In
Ottawa the Equal Rights man is opposed
by Bronson. In South Renfrew, there
are two Liberals und a Liberal Equal
Right or in the Held: iu Toronto, two
Liberals, two Conservatives, two Equal
Righters, nnd Third Party man. In all
the other constituencies, the contest is
between straight Mowalttes, and Meri-
dithitcs.   The elections take placo next

A Desperate Encounter.
Philadelphia, Pa., May 30.—Word
was received at police headquarters
this morning of a bloody encounter between escaped criminals and the police
at Tacony, early this morning. The details so far are meagre, but it is known
tbat the conflict resulted in the death

scene and are now engaged in a determined search for the dead man's companion, who escaped. The men are

CuicAoo, May 31.—One of the private
watchmen on duty in Hayinarket Square
has confessed to Police Captain Hayes
that early last Saturday morning lie saw
a fuze burning at the base of Hayinarket
monument, and being unable to blow it
out, picked out the fire with his knife.
He saw no can of dynamite there at the
time. He being a reliable man, Cant.
Hayes and Chief Marsh believe what he
says. His name is withheld. It is now
thought the whole thing was a fake, and
that the can of dynamite was placed at
the foot of the monument after the
watchman left and was not near the fuze.
A dynamite expert said to-night that no
fuze sold by any of powder houses can
be put out by rain, and that fuze soaked
in water n month will burn readily.
Chief Marsh is now convinced that there
was no attempt to blow up the monument, but thnt a scare was intended by
some unknown person.
He Didn't Iloh rreauhem.

A Narrow Escape.
New Yobk, May 30.—The new steamship Normanla, of the Hani burg-American line arrived here to-day ou her
maiden voyage from Hamburg. Her
time from Southampton was 0 days 21
hours, 60 minutes. Sho did not beat
the record fo? maiden trips but no attempt was mude to do so. The screws
were not pushed beyond an average of
75 revolutions per minute, although
their capacity is 00. Her commander
believes that when an effort is made to
get top speed out of her, she will prove
to be the fastest vessel afloat. On Tuesday afternoon the Xormania entered a
dense fog and slowed down. Suddenly
an iceberg loomed up in the fog. Commander Hobiek reversed the starboard
engine, put the rudder hard aport and
went ahead full speed with the port
engine. The effect wns to swing the
vessel around almost within her own
length, and she skinned the iceberg
with only a slight collision, the contact
being on the port side, just below the
bridge. The plates wore cracked and
tho rail damaged. The passengers hardly felt the shock and after completing
her circle the Normanla went right
along. Commander Hebick thinks that
if she hnd been a single-screw steamer,
she could not have escaped serious collision with the iceberg, which was
hardly more than tho vessel's length
ahead when sighted.

A Good Project,
The project of a railroad northward
through British Columbia to a point on
the Yukon or its tributary, the Parsnip,
ia not so wild a scheme ai It might appear at first sight. The mineral and
other resources to be tapped along the
route nnd in the Yukon valley appear
to promise a traffic, while the configuration of the Rocky mountain system,
which folds into ridges, with deep parallel valleys, running north nnd south
for seven or eight hundred miles, presents, for a mountainous country, singularly few engineering difficulties to
building railroads in a direction parallel
to the ranges, A company has been
organized to push the project and intends to applv for a charter at the next
session of the Dominion Parliament.—

A Modern llluebeard.
London, May 29.—A man, whom his
neighbors call Bluebeard, has been discovered and imprisoned in tho vicinity
of Belgrade. His name is Bujii. For
the last twenty years he has been a
considerable land owner and proprietor
of the largest tavern in the suburbs of
the Servian capital. Buja was living
with his first wife when he made his
first appearance at Belgrade iu 1369,
Two years after she vanished. Buja
advertised for her, paid detectives to
find her, and apparently mourned for
her deeply. After all his efforts proved
ain. Two years elapsed und he niur-
ied again. The second Mrs Julia lasted
entil tlie middle of 1874. Then she too,
dropped out of sight. Buja did as he
had done when the tlrst Mrs Buja
vanished, nnd wus just nfl unsuccessful
ns before. With 1875 came another
Dfrs. Buja, who could not be found after
July, 1876. In the spring of 1877 the
fourth Mrs, Buja shared Kir. Bujn's bed
and board. She was young and pretty,
and was as devoted to her husband as he seemed to be to
her. After a ball one evening in
1878 she started foi home alone in a
cab. She was never seen alive afterward. Her husband ransacked the
country for her, mourned with unusual
vehemence an« swore that he would
never marry again. He remained singli
until 1884, when he took his fifth wife
and has lived with her ever since. He
has had three children by her. He had
bad luck in land speculation three yoars
ago, and was obliged In sell the greater
part of hiB farm. Six weeks ago the
purchaser broke ground for a cellar.
Two feet below tlie surface he came
upon a sealed beer barrel. In it he
found the skeleton of a woman attired
in a ball dress. The wrists were tied
and tbe legs were twisted against her
body, Some jewelry that had dropped
from the woman's neck and arms gave a
clew to the fact that the skeleton was
that of Buja's fourth wife. Buja was arrested and confessed that he had throttled her, packed her in a cask, and
buried her on the night of her return
from the ball. His only reason for the
murder was that he was weary of her.
Buja refused to say whether or not he
killed his other three wives. The police
are having Buja's farm carefully examined with pick, shovel and plow in
"previous to the appearance of Ait? Redistribution Bill there had not been
much antagonistic feeling against the
Government," Ha ndmits that the bill
"does not do justice to the roof district
known as the Lower Fraser." "He had
labored hard and earnestly to secure
for his people a far different bill than
the one passed." He calls the people of
| Vancouver and Westminster "a clique of
1 small, sore-headed, politicalcharlatans."
i poll
When asked why he did not resign and
go to the polls on the redistribution
question, he tells the people that if ho
hud dono so, the city of Vancouver
'would have virtually disfranchised the
est of the District/' He had seen
through their game and come to the
rescue of his constituents. " He waB
driven to the wall by the force of the
argument of the rest of his Cabinet."
"ft was to the best interests of the
people of the District to support the present Government."—" The party in
power." "He wob desirous thut the
people (of the District) should strengthen him and his Government, so that he
could get them what they wanted."
And then he goes ou to enumerate the
good things that he has in store for the
dear "fanners and laborers." He iB
going lo "reclaim the waste lands," und
" ennoble labor." ho he is, and so he is.
" Aud if he had the good fortune to retain his present position another term,
he should submit to the House uncheme
for the exemption from taxation of the
poorman's home." "Aud when this
gets noised abroad, they will come iu
hordes, and they are theclasswewant."
Etc., etc., etc.
To read this speech, without knowing
anything of Premier Robson's nnte-
(rodent.h, it would not be difficult for
htnyone of ordinary discernment to
analyse his prominent characteristics-
vanity, duplicity, and an inordinate
love of power. The last general election
Mr. Robson was elected solely on his
pioinises to the verdant electors, and
Home of them have realized that, 'like
pie-crust, they were mado only to be
broken. Wonder how many will bo
caught in the spider's web this time.

Nkw Yohk, May 30.—Memorial Day
was generally observed throughout the
northern section of the country to-day.
As a rule the weather was delightful.
In this oity vast throngs lined the
streets through which the procession
passed, and many snorting events were
well patronised. The services at General Grant's tomb, Riverside Park, were
attended by Governor Hill and Coin-
mander-in-Chief Alger. The II. S.
steamers Pensacola, Essex and Van tic
were anchored in the Hudson River opposite and fired minute gnus during the
exercises.  The floral tributes were ex

that his watch was engraved. "You

A MKRCENARY SCOLD.
Tin*: Colonist litis boon -omwissiottod
to villifynnd, if po_sihle, discredit Thk
Colu_ihiAk. Tliis is ti most congenial
tusk to tlio Colonhlie, gonitis. Keenly
aware of its inisorably weak position, irritated beyond tlio point of self-control
by its utter inability oven to begin to
clear ot)' the statu the vurious arguments
and questions which we have written
against it,, and goaded to desperation
and madness by our rcpeutod challenges,
the chief of all Ihe organs gladly obeys
the nod of its masters, und breaks out
in a perfect torrent of vituperation and
abuse. Through a full column and
half iu Friday's issue does tlie Colonial
lash itself into a blind fury
nnd exhaust its vocabulary of
vile epithets against this • papor. "A
" pervert," it calls The Columbian,
" bitter and unscrupulous," " a cast-off
" servant," "this deserter," "tlie West
" minster renegade," "tlie turn-coat
" Columbian." This choice collection
of billingsgate shows to how low a level
a journal, as well as an individual, can
sink when it has handed its conscience
and soul over to the keeping of a party
or a Government, whom it must defend,
even if it is reduced to tlio miserable
shift of opposing vulgar and blatant
abuse to independent and fearless crit
cism.
If the Colonist htul tlie leaBt sense of
the fitness of things, or oven a grain of
self-respect, it would not expose its
weak and contemptible position by re
sorting to vulgarity and vituperation
when it hns heen compelled to so
publicly confess its uttor destitution in tho matter of argument. It is
a wonder the masters of the Colonist do
not see the unwisdom and impolicy of
their organ foully abusing an independent cotemporary, whose arguments
and questions it daro not attempt to
answer. But "whom tho gods wish to
"destroy they Ilrst mako mad," and
madness is surely the only excuse thatnny
reasonable person could imagine for
the course of the Colonitt, as well
as of the little yawping echoes on the
Mainland.
There is an assumption all through
the Colonist's mendacious 'string of
abuse, that The Columbian has been an
out-and-out supporter of the Government, and therefore had no right to offer an independent adverse criticism to
any action of that body. But the Colonitt knows perfectly well that such is
not the case. It knows that The Columbian has always professed to be, und
has been, independent, that it has never
been, or sought to bo (under its present
management, nt least), in the confidence
qf the Government, and has never been
considered or treated by tlie Government as a Governmentorgan. We havo
commended the Government for some
things, it is true, and given the Premier
credit whero credit was duo, but that is
as much the duty of an independent
journal as to criticize and oppose, when
this becomes necessary in tho public
interests.
The Colonitt'* article all through is a
very transparent enacting of the "bold
" and unblushing" role, whore an uncomfortable sense of conviction of guilt
is endeavored to be overcome and covered up by the noisy and vulgar bluster
of an accessory. By caluniinnting and
abusing The Columbian, by contemptibly endeavoring to misrepresent and
force us into a false, position, by
raising such questions as to whether
The Columbian should not be "repudiated by its patrons," because it criticizes
the Government adversely now, while
it bas commended Its action on occasions
in the paBt, and bythesuggestingof similar Irrelevant side issues, the Colonist
hopes to have the main questions (with
which it would evidently rathci not
deal)—as lo ichether the Government's re-
diltribtltion policy i, utterly untenable; as
to whether its administration of the
lands and other resources of Ihe
Procinct has become notoriously lax and
corrupt—removed to tlio background and
lost sight of altogether in u potty
wrangle over infinitely less important
matters. Hut we know our duty to tlio
electors, and do not propose to allow
the main questions to Jio covered up hy
a layer of Colonial mud. If that organ
cannot meet these questions fairly, that
will not prevent us from keeping thom
on its slate, however much if may rage
and sptiiuc.
A CONSISTENT OltGAX.
The recent files of the Colonial nnd of
tho other Government organs abound in
expressions showing tho utter contempt
in which tho Provincial Opposition and
-tijKrwiiii-. is held by tho superior
minds that furnish pabulum for the
faithful. Tho Opposition is "weak,"
"incompetent," "stupid," "Imboolle,"
everything that is contemptible and
despicable yet tho chief organ, in an
artlclo noticed elsewhere in these columns, seeking to prove, infcrcntinlly (it
does not attempt to do so directly), the
purity of tho present Administration in
all respects, compliments the erstwhile
" imbecile" Opposition as follows: "The
" opponents of tho Government—keen
" sighted and outspokon us thoy are—do
" not accuse any ono connected with
" tho Government," etc., elc. Thia
suggests another question (two or
threo, In fact,) for the already overloaded
Colonistio Blaie: What is tlio public to
understand the Colonist's real opinion
nf tho Opposition to be? Can tho opponents of the Government lie "incompetent," and "intbocile,"nnd nl the same
time "keen-sighted and outspoken?"
What cause can tlio Colonist show why
a party compoaed of " kccu-slghted and
" outspoken"inon should not have a turn
ut administering the affairs of the coun
try? We hope the Colonist will be
able to tackle these conundrums
more successfully than it has
former ones that we have proposed.
We also trust that it will not forget its
latest certificate of character to the
Opposition, when it has occasion to
refer to that important factor in our
politics again.
Opening of Sech.lt Church.
The church, recently erected at a cost
of $7,000 on the Sechelt Indian Reserve,
will be opened with imposing ceremonies
on Tuesday next. There will be a large
gathering to attend tho function, about
1,200 Indians being expected from the
interior. The first detachment of them
will arrive here on Monday morning
by a special train, and will camp on tbe
Souamish Reserve. The second party
will arrive on Tuesday afternoon. Tbe
steamer Yosemite haB been chartered,
and will make two trips to Sechelt on
Tuesday, leaving Vancouver at 5 a. m.
and3p.m. Persons desiring to witness the ceremonies can leave by her on
the afternoon trip, returning from
Sechelt about midnight. Bishop Durieu
will preside, and will be assisted by all
the missionary clergymen in thiB section
of the Province. The religious exercises
will bo continued until Tuesday, June
lOthj and will be very imposing, concluding with two processions, one at 9 a.
m.and tho other at 8:80 p.m. The
Yosemite will leave Vancouver 10th
June, at 5 a. m., and will return after
the procession. The return excursion
by moonlight will doubtless be largely
patronized. Rev. Father Fay has made
all the arrangements.—_v*cKp8-.tdi'fiWiaar.
Wrecked Near Bella Delia.
Captain Wallace of the steamship
City of Topeka, which arrived ut Port
Townsend from Alaska Sunday evening,
brought news that the steamship Cos-
niopolis was on n rock in Main Pass,
just above Bella Bella. The Cosmopolis sailed from Port Townsend for Alaska
last Wednesday. She had on board a
large cargo of general merchandise for
Alaskan ports, and did not stop at Victoria. Sue was in command of Captain
George Dettmers and Pilot Gillespie,
but it is evident that whoever was at
the wheel when the accident happened
did not know the channel. The vessel
anchored in Bella .Bella bay, between
Campbell and Denny islands, on the
British Columbia coast, on Friday
night. At 4 o'clock Saturday morning
the vessel started up the pass, but instead of keeping in the channel was
steered on the rocks in a sort of blind
bay in Campbell Island. She iB within
a few yards of shore, and less than two
miles from Bella Bella, and had only attained about half speed when the accident happened. The vessel went on
the rock nt high tide, and when seen by
Captain Wallace. Captain Dettmers expressed the opinion that he could float
off on Sunday morning's high tide.
Captain Wallace thinks, however, that
tho accident will prove more serious
than was expected. He says the vessel
waa lying on her beam ends and appeared to be in a good position to fill.
The Cosmopolis was built at San Francisco in 1887. Her length is 164 feet,
breadth 82 feet, depth 10.5 feet, and net
tonnge 207; It is expected that a vessel
will be sent to the relief of the wrecked
steamship. The Cosmopolis had a very
heavy freighton board consisting of cannery supplies and lime.

Montreal, May 28.—The leading Ben-
ttation m religious circles for the pnat
two weeks wns the disappearance of
Rev. Mr. Martin, formerly a priest in
,the Church of Koine, but latterly identi-
" lied here with various Protestant bodieB.
The sensation was increased when it
was known that Martin appeared with
his wife at the morning service to-day
at the Russell Hall French Presbyterian
Church on St. Catharine street. Martin
was seen and he says that having become discouraged through ill-health and
inability to provide for his family he
made nn agreement with the Archbishop
to return to the church on condition
tbat his family would be provided for.
He thon went down to Antigonish, N. S.,
to a Trappist motmsterv, where the abbot had been instructed* to receive him
as a priest going into retreat, but tbere
he found his domestic ties'were too
strong, nnd accordingly he returned to
his family, Archbishop Knbre was seen
by the nssociuted press correspondent!
and was Informed for the lirst time of
the priest's second apostasy. lie could
offer no reason for hts strange conduct.
The Protestant clergy  nre  much  per*
f>lexed over the man's vagaries, and nota
it tie chagrined at the faithlessness of
the protege.	
A  Nenill-lo   Ntthool    Hoard.
Chip, S. I)., May 28,—May Seymour
Howell of Xow York, who came here
. with Susan 11. Anthony iu the interests
of Woman's Suffrage and with the intention of delivering lectures, was prevented by a mob. Tlte school house
had been engaged for the lecture, hut
the school board is made up of foreigners
and they told Mrs. Howell that woman
ought to glay nt home and mind the
babies and refused to allow her to enter.
A number of citizens ranged themselves
on the side of Mrs. Howell and a riot
seemed imminent. Tbe lady left town
in the interests of pence.
Tlte Oerinmii Army.
London, May 28,—The German Gov
eminent has asked the Reichstag for a
further vote of $5,000,000 for military
purposes. The uses to which this money
is to be applied explain the Importance
and magnitude of the army bill now
pending which docs not appear at the
first glance. In the first place tho
money Ib to be applied to the creation
of 70 new field batteries, that is an addition of 420 guns to tne field army:
secondly, to the increase of the establishment of the infantry nnd cavalry
regiments, especially those of the army
corps quartered ou the Russian and
French frontiers, nnd thirdly, tbe for
luation of n new Bavarian division!
The increase of artillery is intelligible
enough. The German'Held army hns
864 batteries, against 460 in France, und
424 in Russia. The present addition
will give the Germans 434, which is
more on a level with the figures of their
neighbors. The exact distribution of
the new bntterles is not known. The
old organization gave to each infantry
division a field artillery regiment composed of two "brigade divisions" of four
batteries each. Two years ngo this system was replaced by one in which the
regiment consists of three ''brigade divisions" of three batteries each. This
would have given each division an extra
battery (six guns), but it was carried
out only in alternate regiments. It will
now doubtless be extended to nil regiments. According to a rough division
the German army corps will Tu future go
into action with something like 180
guns, instead of 97, so long the normal
number. The artillery will be one-
third more numerous than in the last war
and the effect expected from each gun
is at least double what it used to be.
The new Bavarian division means an
addition of 12,000 to the fighting force.
The increase of frontier corps nre to be
permanently on n war footing. As to
cavalry, the statement is not quite intelligible, seeing that for u long time

American Fork.
London, May 20.—Much discontent
exists in France in regard to the virtual
embargo ou American pork, which has
raised the price of meat considerably
throughout the country.   Tlie American
product is discriminated against by a
vexatious and unnecessary inspection
on the pretence that disease may be
lurking in the meat.    The working
classes iu the cities are indignant over
tbe discrimination, which they regard
as intended for the benefit of the peasant farmers of France at the expense of
the consumers in the industrial centres.
Mons. Delahaye, who was French representative in toe Berlin Conference for
the benefit of workingmeu, expresses
, himself very plainly against the policy
| of excluding foreign meat,  and he de-
. dares that it is one of the grievances
! that is likely to strengthen Socialists by
promoting agitation.   However, in this
respect France  is not alone, and Germany is preparing to increase, instead
I of lessening the number of laws which
[ are supposed to protect public health,
| but really protect the farmer and cattle
j raiser. ^
Stanley Banquetteil
London, May 30.—Tho banquet given
I in honor of Mr. Henry M.   Stanley at
the American  Legation  this evening,
f was one of the most notable of the many
complimentary entertainments of which
the explorer  has been  the  recipient
since his  return  to England.   Nearly
400 guests were tnesent, including the
entire American Legation aitfl consulate.
Among the more prominent of tlie guests
were Mr. Jnmos Whistler, Max O'Rcll,
'aid Du Challlu and five members of
no New York and London and banking
family of the Seligman.   The remainder
lot those present comprised tbe leading
llmerican  residents uud sojourners In
TLondon.   Tho special guest of the occasion  wns more prompt in arriving
[ than has been his custom at previous
gatherings in his honor, and appeared
less reticent and exclusive than  usual.
I In his speech in reply to the toast of the
Iguest of the evening, Mr.   Stanley disappointed his hearers by making'no
Intention   whatcvar   of  the question
jpf his   citizenship,   since   everybody
[lias evinced   a   curiosity   to   know
whether he will feel himself nt liberty to
accept any title or other mark of disjunction which it may please tho Queen
■o bestow upon him.    Mr.  Stanley is
liow nn American citizen, though he
■tad beon a subject of the Queen, und
|io one Ib ns yot Informed as to whether
" 8 at liberty to avail himself of Her
Ifnjcsty's gracious   intention   toward
ym, or, indeed, whether or not he still
IgardB himself as an American.   Mr.
Stanley's remarks, as well as his man-
were not particularly impressive
htil he proceeded to refer to the recent
■ply of Lord Salisbury to his assertions
fiat the   Government   wns throwing
way her chances In  Africa through
liathy, while Germany wns improving
■erg.   In refuting the allusions of tbe
rremler to himself, Mr. Stanley became
Inimated in manner and forcible in
ich.   As a souvenir of the occasion
lath guest was presented with an album
Xontaining photographs and autographs
lif the explorer and the stall' which accompanied him on bis journey across
ft be dark continent."

TO THE ELECTORS OF

GENTLEMEN:—In resp
numerously slg
me, I beg to of.
this City In the I
Legii
.1 frankly confess that, aside from the great
question of the just distribution of legislative
power, 1 would scarcely care to be a candidate,
if you do tne tho honor to elect mc I shall make
that question my first consideration at all times,
aud in order to do this it is essential that I
keep quite free from any entangling alliances
with either Government or Opposition. But to
the people and the advocacy of the rights of the
 lo,inthismattorandln all others. I can
peopli
Fully i
bo they on what sido of the Houso they 	
who are animated hy a slmilnr spirit, I will work
   . .    ... —, and wltb those,
on what side of. the Houso the);, may.
illy and freely pledge myself;
J they ' "  ,J~ ~c "■-
cordially,
Tho present crisis demands special treatment.
We of trie Lower Mainland aro denied our Just
share of legislative power, and so long as that Is
tlio enso our true policy, in iny opinion—nay,
the policy which ourown self-respect compels us
to adopt—is to return no man to tho Legislature
who will not mako the righting of that wrong
his ilrst business. It may safely be assumed
that those who shall be (mind willing to do
right in thiB matter, will be the most likely to do
right in others also.
Notwithstanding ttie'utmost devotion to this
first question, your representative wlll have to
deal with many other matters, aud perhaps lt
will lie sufllciont now to say on this point thut I
believe (here is room for a good deal of work before the administration of public affairs can
claim to be what it should be—government hy
the people for the people. I should earnestly en
denvnr to do my snare of that work.
1 believe I may safely assume that you need
..j assurance of my deep and abiding Interest in
everything thnt umkes for the prosperitv of New
Westminster City.
1 nin, Gentlemen,
Very truly yours,

TO THE ELEOTORS
 OF THE—
Westminster Electoral District.
GENTLEMEN.-As it in difficult tourrnnge to
see each individual elector before election dny,
I wisli to put before you the platform on which
I stand whilst seeking your support.
Up to the introduction of tho Constitution
Amendment Act, I should have supported the
present Government, but I now stand independent of all parties on that measure, pledged
to obtain a fair and Just Redistribution Aet
immediately after the publication of the census
returns; sueh act to be based as nearly us possible upon population, the abolition of the balance of power nnd the division of districts into
one member constituencies, Outside this pledge
I claim the privilege of being allowed to support
nnv legislation of a just nud beneficial nature
which innv bo introduced by the Government.
I will endeavor to impress upon the Government tho necessity of tho utmost liberality in
the expenditure for tlio opening up of nil agricultural districts and even, If necessary, to borrow monoy for this purpose.
Tho conservation of nil nubile lands for actual
settlement, and the abolition of all sales of land
iu Urge nreos, will lie ono of tho chief objects I
shall hold In view, and to also assist in the
greatest amount of laud being brought Into cultivation. I would advocate the Wild Land Tax
being raised to 26 cents per acre.
It will also bo my endeavor lo impress u.
the Government the absolute nucossitynf taking
steps to assist In tho reclamation of the large
area of land subject to overflow bv tho Frnser,
sons to render lt all lit for cultivation, feeling
sure that any money spent in that direction
wilt be a good Investment, as the lands wlll be
greatly enhanced In value for assessment.
From the above you wlll seo I stand ns a supporter of tho Government, except on ono measure, and feel sure that you will see that as I
am a resident farmer in the district our Interests are identical, and I hopo tn ho able to
materially advance the Interests of the district
clionld you honor mo as yonr representative.
I am, Gentlemen,
Yours Obediently,

Tho Brunette Saw Mills Co. has purchased the fine steamer Adelaide from

Mr. Jas. Wise laid on our (able this
morning a basketful of luscious strawberries fresh from Ins garden. For
flavor, size and appearance the fruit
would easily capture first prltte at nny
agricultural show; and the early period
of their production speaks volumes for
the astonishing fertility of the soil and
the mildness of the climate of I his Province.
If you want to invest in Brownsville

Messrs. Mowat A Sloan's new advertisement. This property is directly opposite the city and ou tho principal road
running south from Westminster, and
about the same distance from tho
post office as any point on Montreal st.
It is safe to say that pro|«?rty in thiB

Tho Chinese farmer!}, on thoBnrton
estate, Nanaimo River Delta, on awakening this morning found that during
the night tho stnble nnd pig house had
been destroyed by fire. In the latter
were 45 large hogs valued at $700, all of
which were consumed by the fire, also
several sets of harness in the stables
valued nt $120. Clung Down the owner,
thinks the fire wan caused by an incendiary.—Free Press,
Yesterday the train from Sapperton
had n passenger who did not pay faro or
ride in tho cars. He was a young Si-
wash boy and was perched astride of
the drawbar of the lust freight car. The
little fellow seemed to enjoy the ride
very much, but such daring feats should
receive the early attention of tlie police
and of the railway officials. The boys
get on nt Sapperton when tlio train 'is
moving out and nobody is looking.
Tlio row made by a number of calves
on the C. P. N. wharf last night was
something horrible. Whether or not
the poor creatures sutler to any extant
during their confinement is ham to toll,
but all thoir cries nnd actions certainly
lead ono to believo thoy Buffer keenly.
Apart from what the calves may sufle'i.
the torment of their piteous moans and
cries is great to the surrounding neighborhood, nnd some means should bo
taken to abate the nuisance for onoe and
all time.
For soveral evenings pasta meteorological phenomenon has been witnessed iu
the eastern portion of tho horizon.
Around tho Pitt Mountains about 5 in
the afternoon heavy masses of black
cloud gather with here and there a lurid
streak of light; gradually the clouds
descend to the lowlands nnd come sweeping along to tho city whore tho effect of
the atmospherical disturbance is felt in
a kind of cyclorto of extremely cold wind,
lasting only a few inomonts. No rain
accompanies the phenomenon. This
strange affair has happened for the past
three or four evenings. Tho sky generally brightens and clears up Immediately aftorwards.
A SLIGHT ACCIDENT.
Tbe  Westminster Local   and a   Freight
Train Collide Near Hastings.—So
One Injured.
Shortly after ten o'clock this morning
the local train en route from Vancouver
to Westminster reached Hastings, debarked and embarked passengers and
then proceeded on its way, despite the
fact that orders had been received to
crosB a freight train at Hastings station.
The freight train was rapidly approach
ing Hastings, and the express had onlv
rounded the curve a quarter of a mile
east of the station when the two trail.!
came in view of each other. Fortunately neither train had much speed on
victoria.a..aT«u»Silioo,U,avoflll!l"lllLD«» <PW'l* »* ¥* ¥«!•
steam laundries busily at work and
overy man who delights in glossy linen
-$nd who does not?—will see the end
of his feud with the weekly Chinaman
aud his miserable work. There seems
to be no good reason why Westminster
should not have an institution of this
kind, too. We are possessed of what
may fairly be termed a leisure class, i.e.
gentleman who work a little and rest a
great deal, and those members ot the
aristocracy don't like to go around with
any of John's 'prentice attempts at
"Ivory gloss" hanging like a whitewashed halter round their blue-blooded necks,
or bis crinkled Bhirt fronts shielding
their patrician chests; and even if the
at the time.   Brakes were sounded and rates were a little higher, scarcely any
the engines reversed but the distance body would object, and the steam loan
was too short and the trains came together ; not very heavily, bat with sufficient force to damage both engines
wreck a box car and badly crush one
end of a flat car. The passengers and
train hands all escaped without injury,
and little or no damage was done to the
passenger coaches.
The accident, it is learned, was caused
by the forgctfulness of the engineer of
the local train, who had been ordered to
pass the freight train at Hastings bat
forgot all about it, and only realized his
mistake when the trains ran into each
other. It is fortunate that the collision
was a light one, for tho number of passengers aboard was large; and had it
occurred a mile farther out, when the
trains would have beeu running full
speed, itis hard to estimate just how
terribly serious tbo accident might have
proven. Thoro was a number of Westminster people aboard and several
prominent Vancouverites.
Mowing Cluh Meeting.
Tho Westminster Bowing Club holds
its big meeting to-night in tbe City Hall
at 8 o'clock. The committee haB a most
interesting report to make and several
letters from Vancouver clubs will be
road. The club expects every man of
athletic proclivities in the City to do
his duty to-night by dropping in to help
the enterprise by his presence and opinions. This meeting will practically determine whether Westminster is to nave
a Bowing Club or not. Should the
club be formed this time a four will go to
practice at once and probably compete
in the matches at Vancouver in a few
weeks.
An Uneipected Bath,
On her trip down ou Thursday one of
the deck hands of the steamer Gladys
was leaning over the top rail to get a
bucketful of water while passing Silver
Creek. Tho tug of the filled bucket, was
too sudden for him and he went over
the side into the river. The steamer
ran nenrly a mile before the accident
was noticed nnd she could put about
and go back to pick up the man. The
unlucky deck-hand was nono the worse
for his long Bwim In tho Fraser, and described the water as very wet and cold.
He was swimming along quite composedly when the steamer-reached him and
seemed to rather enjoy the bath than
otherwise.

The Mainland Championship.
Tho secretary of the Vancouver Lacrosse Club has written to the secretary
of the Westminsters suggesting that a
series of matches be arranged between
the two clubs for the championship of
tbe Mainland. Itis proposed to play
for a trophy or a set of flags, each city
to bear half of the expense. Let the
Vancouver club name the value of the
trophy and Westminster will have its
share of the coBt ready for use within
24 hours. The idea is an excellent one
and if carried into effect will result iu a
game being played evory two or three
weeks throughout the season. The
championship of the Mainland is well
worth fighting for, and the new series
will add to the popularity of tho game.
Tho fiiiJt. match will probably bo played
on Saturday next.

A meeting of eight of tho nine District

it was decided to hold tho following programme of meetings iu the District:

It is understood tlie Hou. John Rob-
. . ,    bJ<-_,
dry would no doubt be a flourishing institution from the beginning. If somo
enterprising person will only try it he
can rest assured there is a fortune in it.
Every little village in Ontario has its
steam laundry and there is generally
not a better paying busiuess in town.
Westminster has eight thousand inhabitants, to adopt a very mild estimate
and if a decently managed steam laundry cannot manage to pick up a good
living among such a population it will
be a riddle not easy to solve,
or Interest tu Hoots.
A general meeting of tho Caledonian
and St. Andrew's Society will be held
somo night next week. Tho affairs of
this Society havo been somewhat in
abeyance, nud those who have the best
interests of the Society at heart have
become somewhat alarmed at the an-
{.carance of things. The meeting to bo
lold next week is for tho purpose of
resuscitating and remodelling the whole
business, and tho affairs of the society
will be thoroughly overhauled and put
straight and set going again on a solid
baBJB. It is understood that the society
will hereafter hold its meetings once a
month in the Orange Hall, thoBe meetings to be of a more social and literary
character than formerly. There is
good ground for the assertion
that tho Saint Andrew's Society
should be the strongest, numerically, in
this city, as the Scotch part of the population probably outnumbers any other
except, of course, the Canadian, by at
least two to one.
The successful founding of the Sons of
England Lodge in this city, while exciting tbe admiration of the Scotch at the
way the men of Old England stand
shoulder to shoulder, has also excited their liveliest emulation. As
everyone knows the St. Andrew's society
in this city used to be one of the most
flourishing institutions iu tlie country,
and their annual banquet on St. Andrews's night ono of the red-letter
nights of the year; it seems therefore
too bad that the old order should sink
out of sight and hearing in Westminster, when the bond of Caledonian
unity and brotherhood is kept up
with unswerving fidelity throughout tho
whole world; and while tbe Scots on the
banks of the Hoang Ho send greeting to
their brothers in Melbourne ou the
glorious 30th, and London Scots shake
hands by telegraph. wUVbrithcrchtels'1
In Boston and New York it seems ungracious and unsympathetic that British
Columbia should huve nothing to say,
nnd sho used to be known as New Caledonia, too, only a few years ago.

Mr. Grant, the well-known logger of
Vnldez Islund, has hit upon the novel
plan of having a (bating logging camp,
With this end in view, he has given
Messrs Clark A Watson a contract for
two large scows, ono about 100 tons und
the other about 50 tons burden. Their
construction will bo commenced at once.
This is a new departure i» tho logging
business, und will greatly facilitate the
work of moving irom ono site to another.
The largo soow will be used ns a stable
and a place of storage, while tho small
one will furnish living and sleeping accommodation for the men. The two
scows will be worth about $2,000.—Free

It is lenrnod from very reliable sources
that grouse are being slaughtered in all
directions throughout the distriot where-
over a Chinese cordwood camp is located. Attention was first called to thiB
fact by the purchases of powder and
shot made iu this city by Chinese wood-
choppers, ono of whom boldly asserted
he bought them to kill grouse. It is
said by many farmers across the river
that oven tho young birds tire being killed, though thoy aro hardly able to fiy
vet. It seems too bad that some stop
.o this practice is not made. The game
laws lire all right, but no attempt is
mado to enforce thom, or apprehend
law breakers; consequently tlio laws are
useless except in a rare case whon a constable happens to stumble ovor some
?cacher with tho game in his nossosslon.
he Government should appoint rangers
to scour the country, who by making a
few examples would soon put a stop to
killing game out of season,
S
son will mnke a separate canvass, and
will not participate in any of tho abovo
meetings.

"I. I)., Recto
GENTLEMEN:—In view of the near
approach of the election to fill the vacancy caused by the death of our late
representative (tho 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
residei.ee of over 30 yoars in this Province and much intercourse with our
American cousins has had tho 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 defined in
British Columbia as they are in the older
provinces, 1 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
oood measures which may be brought
before them, and to consider the prosperity of the Dominion as a whole, but
our own Province in particular, and
should a measure come before them
which they consider in any way detrimental to the interests of this Province
they should take their stand like true
men and vote against it.
I ain'opposed to a certain extent, to
the Tariff, or National Policy as applied
to British Columbia. We are a long
way from the centres of manufacture in
the East, and many articles of every-day
use to our Farmers and others, and
which we cannot produce at home can
be obtained more readily and at shorter
notice from our near neighbors over the
line, and iu many eases the articles are
better adapted to our needs than thoBe
■ brought from the Eastern Provinces; in
fact, much of our Farming and Mining
Machinery, Wooden Ware and other articles are brought from the StateB, 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 Hie last three months. It we had
not received a good supply from California there would have  been a meat
famine;  as it is we are now and have
been paying 25 conts per pound for 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 prepared to meet hard winters  than they
were beforo, and to my mind the only
ones who have reaped the benefit of the
N. P. aro the manufacturers,   As a true
Britisher I should like  to see  "Free
Trade," but as that seems out of tho
question,! would advocate "Reciprocity"
in many articles which arc at present   in   the Tariff'  lists, ns   I   think
it   would    be    beneficial    to    both
countries, and the working man would
not have to go down so deep into his
pockets to buy what he needs to cat and
wear. I am aware the Government must
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   nrmmT * t
of the late Mr. Chisholm, he was unable   KcMU V AL
to be in his place tliie session, and very
little during tho previous one; so we of
this District havo been practically unrepresented, aud our local wants  have
not been brought before the notice of
tho House.    Had he (Mr.  Chisliolm)   second door up tiie hill from'ti
influx pour iu 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 see as
many as possible before the election,
when I shall be prepared to lay my views
more fully before them and answer any
questions. As soon as possible after the
arrival of the writ I will arrange for a
personal canvass and will send due notice of time and place of meetings.
During my long residence in the Province I have travelled through muefc of
it, from Victoria to Cariboo, aud 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 man*
ner.
Should I havo the honor to be elected
I assure you I shall 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 aud to do my duty aB such.
Yours faithfully,
AVM. B. TOWNSEND.

been iu his seat, I do not think the Post
master-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
thero are other places in the District
which need better postal facilities, which
I consider should receive that gentleman's earliest attention.
I hope that in the near future our
DiBtrlct 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 151)0
miles of territory, and when the census
returns aro iu I think tho necessary
number of population will be found to
demand such addition.it representation.
Tlie protection of the river banks at
Chilliwack, Sumas, Burton's Prairie and
other places should 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 all railway charters and
privileges within our borders.
Our Fishing interests, being of such
great importance to this District in particular, I feel should receive more than
ordinary attention.
I would urge the cutting of a canal
through the Delta lands from the mouth
of the Serpentine to Fraser ttiver, 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, und encouraged judiciously.

To urge the further Improvements of the navigation of the Fraser and other riven.; the protection of (heir banks, the improvement of anv
harbors In this District, and the construction of
canals where necessary for the purpose of
allowing farmers and others every facility to
reach market,
To encourage agriculture by protecting all
such articles ns can he produced In this Province, and to lower duties on all thnt cannot,
and which arc absolutely the necessaries of life,
and increase the tariff on luxuries so that the
consumer would be even taxed less than al present,
To Increase the representation In proportion
to tho wealth anil importance of this District.
To Increase and have adequate mall service to
all portions of the Province und free lotter.de-
llvcry In cities.
No diminution iu the Chinese Restriction

Tb THE ELECTOES
New Westminster District.
GENTLEMEN:—As I have already announced,
I beg to oiler myself asu candidate for the seat In
the Commons made vacant by the death of our
late member, and I come before you as a supporter of Ihe Government of Sir John Macdonald, reserving to myselt, of course, Ihe right to
act Independently should tho action of the Government lu any matter seem pre judical to our
Interests.
1 would strongly urge Immediate attention to
the Improvement of the River where required,
for the protection of the rich agricultural lands
of the District, and If elected,! shall at once
proceed to Ottawa and leave no stone unturned
lo secure thu immediate appointment of it
competent engineer with a view to the prompt
undertaking of this most Important work.
As you are aware, tho duty on certain kinds
of mining machinery hus been remitted In this
Province as a special concession to British Columbia on account of the special conditions obtaining here. I would strongly urge the further
application of this principle of special tariff arrangements, so as to relieve consumers of goods
which must be imported, while preserving tbe
protection of our agricultural and other in
(crests.
The hind laws nf ihe Dominion, having boon
framed without close consideration of our requirements, are In many points unsuitable, for
example In the conditions ns to clearing, f
would endeavor to secure Immediate reform in
this Important matter.
Subsidies having been granted to rallwnvs In
the various provinces of the Dominion, I should
urgently present tbe claims lo similar assistance
of railways within onr own Province.
Should the City of New Westminster decide to
bnllda bridge across the Fraser, I should use
my best endeavors to obtain a substantial subsidy for the work, urging that an undertaking
of this character should rank with canals und
railways as one entitled to national aid.
The next census will undoubtedly show such
an Increase in the wealth and population of this
District as wlll constitute nn uudoniublo clnlin
to Increased representation in the Commons,
That claim, if elected, I shall support to the utmost of my ability.
Although, with the growth of the District,
the mall service bus been improved aud extended, it still lags far hehiudlmr requirements.
I should give special attention to this pari of
your representative's work, feeling that It Is
one which is of vital imprirlunce.
I should urge the enactment of such fishery
regulations, especially in the issuing of licences,
as would, without nnv injustice to the canneries, the import a uce of which to the prosperity of
the District all must recognize, fully protect
the free fishermen, and encourage the settlement amongst us of the greatest possible num-
bcrof that Industrious and hardy class of men.
All enactments and regulations for the protection of while labor would receive mv hearty
support,
Conttuucd work towards tho Improvement of
the harbors of New Westminster nml Vancouver, and the efficient lighting and buoying of
the same, is a matter which would have mv
closest attention nt nl! times.
In a word, I should constantly urge upon tho
Government the wisdom of a liberal pollev In
public works in this District, the vast resources
of which make it certain that such a policy
would be amply justified by results.
Trusting to have the opportunity ot seeing
every elector before polling day,
1 am, Gentlemen,
Very sincerely yours,
