From Halifax.
(Correspondence ol tho Columbian.)
Halifax, N. S„ Doc. 10..—Mr.
John O. Brown, the kind and obliging postmaster of Westminster, and
Mr. Robert Kennedy, iwfere in this
eity at the Halifax Hotel last week.
They remained two or three days
and so had ample opportunity to
take in the sights of the oity.   As
we walked around the streets, there
we were gathered together -the five
representatives of British Columbia
—the land whioh was once called
"very far west indeed," but is now
only a week's  travel away.   They
left on the  Allan  line steamship
Sardinian, and I suppose are  still
tossing on the billows of the broad
Atlantic.   Mr, Brown goes to visit
friends and relations in the "Emerald Isle," from which he has been
absent about twenty-six years.  Mr.
Kennedy goes partly  on pleasure
and partly  on  business connected
with his automatic perforator.   The
machine has been very well received
wherever it has been  shown,  so,
doubtless, Mr. Kennedy's expectations will be fully realized,   and if
there art not "millions in it," there
certainly are thousands.   They will
be absent at least three  months, 1
believe.   There is quite an attraction in Mitchell's window on Georgo
street, around which a great crowd
haa been constantly gathered  during the past week. It is a doll whioh
plays a miniature piano and at regular intervals turna her head  very
knowingly from side to side, and
another figure dressed in imitation
of a stolid Dutchman who sits there
hour after hour smoking "mit his
pipe,"   It seems queer that people
will stand and gaze at the smoker
when they might turn their heads
in any direction ana see  the genuine act itself.   Some time last summer a street car driver was brought
up before Robert Motton Esq. 8. M.
and fined on a oharge of driving his
oar on the Sabbath, in violation of
the Sunday Observance Law.   The
case came up last week before judge
Johnstone, of the county court, who
quashed the conviction on the ground
that driving a street  car  was not
servile labor.   The Lord's Day Observance Society have now appealed
from tbat decision and the case will
be carried up to the higher court-
A sarlngs bank has been opened in
connection  with   the   Dartmouth
public schools.    Although  it has
only been organized during the last
week the children have already deposited savings amounting to over
$50.   The intention is that as each
child's  deposit reaches a cortain
specified sum, the account will be
transferred to the  Dominion Government Savings Bank.     This is a
step in the right direction, for economy mast sometime be learned  by
all, and the fit and proper time is
during youth.   It seems to me that
suoh a plan  would  work  well in
British Columbia where money is
freer and not so solidified as in  the
older provinces.   The polico court
is as booming as ever.   The docket
each day is pretty well filled.    The
majority of the cases are the usual
"d. and d." and tho punishment $5
or 80 days. Lately  Mr. Maokasey,
the inspector of licenses,  has been
raising quite a commotion  amongst
those selling liquor without a license.
A couple of illicit stills havo recently been found in tho city and vicinity.   The nominations for  the  vacancy in Shelburne  county caused
by the resignation ef the late member Mr. Robertson, look place last
Thursday the 8th inst   The liberals
have again nominated Mr. Robertson who will he opposed by a tory
candidate,   Major-General   Laurie,
well known ln  British  Columbia.
Both sides feel confident of success.
The result will be known in a short
time.   You in British Columbia aro
ahead of us in the first fall of  "the
beautiful."   Some timo ago we  had
a slight fall  of   snow  whioh    almost immediately disappeared. Last
Thursday snow fell to the depth of
three or four inches and the musio
of the merry sleigh-bells was heard
for the first time this winter,   But
it only remained two or three days
and now it is raining as though the
floodgates of heaven were opened.

UST M6IIT-S DESPATCHES.
ANOTHER Ol'EltATION.
Vienna, Dec. 22.—A deipatoh lo
the Free Press from Milan aaya that
on the advice of tho English physicians,
the crown prince'i neck has been cupped, and Dr. Kranse ia having the
blood thus obtained analyzed, at the
laboratory in order to Mcrcrtrlin whether it contains an excesi of'-Rtigar or
whether it is a healthy stairs. If it
proves to contain, to niuoh 'sugar, the
physician will decide on which course
to adopt on treatment advised by Dr.
Frueud, of Vienna, which has in view
tho reduction of sugar in the blood to a
normal condition.
TEG C.P.R. MONOPOLY PURCHASE.
London, Deo. '22.—The .Financial
Neios refers to a definite proposal of
the Dominion Government to pur-
ohaie the Canadian Pacifio Railway
Company'! monopoly, and asserts that
the scheme ii likely to come before the
Canadian Parliament at the ensuing
leeiion.
Much anxiety is felt in shipping
circles as to the softy of Atlantic vessels on account of the loss of the groat
raft on Sunday last. It is suggested
that in view of the fact that the raft
was Canadian built, the authorities of
the proper department at Ottawa
should assist iu the search, and also
in warning passing steamers of the
possible danger.
THE POPE'S JUBILEE.
London, Dec. 22.—Hundred! of
pilgrims are journeying from all parte
of Europe to Rome to attend the great
jubilee celebration. The Pope has
ordered that 60,000 tickets of admission to St. Peters be inued for the
Jubilee Mass, whioh will be an imposing ipectable. The numbers of
presents which havo already arrived
for hia holiness are found to bo much
more tban enough to fill the space
which it was originally intended should
be used for their exhibition, and the
accommodations are, therefore, being
hurriedly extended. It is ' estimated
that the value of the gifts will amount
to 83,000,000;-' They will include 60,-
000 chasubles, 12,000 cups, 800 crucifixes, and an immense-number of garments, mitrea, slippers, etc., so tbat
the exhibition will have the appearance of a hugo bazaar. One noticeable
fact with regard to the jubilee is that
Russia is almost the only country
which holds aloof from the aflair.
THE VANCOUVER-HONO KONO STEAMERS.
Glasgow, Dec. 22.— Three steel
steamers, each of 3000 tons burthen,
hnve been contracted for by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. The
steameri will be built at the Fairfield
yard on tho Clydo, and will be uied
for the Canadian Pacific Japanese service.
CANADIAN-AMERICAN   PARCEL POST.
New York, Dec. 22.—The Herald's
special from Ottawa soys: •'Postmaster-General MacLelan has returned
from New York, where he went to
confer with Mr. Bell, tho superintendent of foreign mails at Washington, on
behalf of tho American government
regarding the establishment of a parcel post service between Canada and
the United States. All tho arrangements were satisfactorily concluded,
and only await the proper signatures.
The proposed sorvice will be inaugurated on January 1st. Thore has been
no previous arrangements covering
this dais of reading matter.
A COUNTERFEITS!!   CAPTURED.
Chicaoo, Dec. 22. —Capt. Hooper
has lueceeded ln arresting tbe alleged
counterfeiter, Charles P. Collin alias
Morrii. A learch of hia room resulted in the finding of a counterfeiter'!
completo outfit including a dozen
mouldi for coining dollars and half
dollars. Besidei theso there wero discovered various liquid plating apparatus, and everything pertaining to the
counterfeiter's craft. Capt. Hooper
regards thii as one of the greatest
captures of the year.

Sinn, the remainder of tbe crew, drifted about on the wrecked ship until
Nov. 18th, when the bark Lima Perry
rescued them and carried them to Bar-
badoei. Tho rescuing vessel has ainoa

COMMERCIAL UNION DEnAtri.
Ottawa, Dec. 23.—The qunttal of
commercial union, as a plank in the -
platform of Canadian pelitfa*^ was,:
tested for the first time in the Dominion; in the election for a renriaantatlre
td parliament in Eaat Northiuabetland
to-day, resulting in the defeat of Dr.
Mallory, a liberal and commercial
unionist, by a majority of 14.
Building stones made of corncobs
form the object of a new Italian
patent. Ed. Olerici, of Milan, is
the name of the patentee. The cobs
are pressed by machinery into forms
similar to briok, and hold together
by wire. They are make water
tight by soaking with tar. These
moulds are very hard and strong;
tlieir weight is less than one-third
of that of hollow briok, and thoy
can never get damp.
THIS HORSING'S DISFATCtfts.
THE KANSAS BUZZARD.
Kansas Citv, Deo. 23.—Additional
details of the recent blizzard were received early this morning. The number of deaths, by freezing and, starvation, are now estimated at CO. Two
men named John Henry and John
Cottier, en route for Texas, left Ashland an hour before the itorm began.
Their bodies were found next day on
tho prairie, fivo miles west of the town,
frozen stiff. The team which thoy had
with them was found fully 20 miles
south; tho animals had drifted with the
wind nnd bocoming exhausted sank into
tho snow and died. A gentleman from
Greeley county gives an even more
startling account. Three men left
Horace, Greeley county, intending to
go tc their claims a short diitanoe from
town. They wandered around all
night and finally ono of them, Mr.
Gibba, lank exhausted in the mow
and hia companion! could not induce
him to continue the tramp in search of
shelter and finally wore compelled to
leave him. Hia body wai found next
day. Tho other two men kept on and
filially reached a dugout, where thoy
took shelter. Both had their arms,
feet and ears frozen and oannot livo.
Sad tales come from all sides.
A TERRIBLE HURRICANE.

Watts, which left Philadelphia, Oot.

=#•***
Some ptroplo have been complaining of cold during the past few days,
when the thermometer registered
25 above zero. The cold was felt
to be more severe because it immediately succeeded a period of remarkably fine weather, even for
British (Jolumhia. When one reads,
however, of 51 below zero in dolor-
ado, and 30 feet of snow, one may
W«U be reconciled to suoh days as
we have been experiencing. The
contrast is very striking, and it
brings to one's recollection the
great privilege of being permitted to
reside on the Pacific coast—a privilege whioh is not always sufficiently appreciated. Present indications lou) us to anticipate that before the olose of the present century
the Pacifio coast will not be muoh
behind the Atlantic in point of
population, and in point of privilege
it will always lead the rest of the
continent.
It is a matter of considerable surprise to many people that- so much
enthusiasm should bo aroused over
a brutal prize fight between human
beings. One can honestly admire
the science and the art which enables a person to defend himself
suooesaf ully against the fist or the
sword of an/ enemy bent on mischief,, but it is difficult to conceive
of anything more unmanly than the
pugilistic enoounteis which once in
a while make humanity blush for its
kind. Under the impulse of strong
provocation men may fight and put
forward aome kind of excuse for
their folly: but when tbe encounter
ia undertaken in cold blood, and for
gain, the turpitude of it becomes infinitely greater. Recognizing the
evil efibots of these cruel exhibitions,
nearly all civilised nations have passed laws against them; but men
whose moral sentiments have re
mained undeveloped care as little
for law as for the effect of their
acts. The laws ought to be made so
stringent that such disgraceful exhibitions would become praotically
impossible.
The Brandon Mail is the authority on whioh the statement has
gone abroad that an arrangement is
likely to be made by whioh the
Canadian Pacific Railway Oa will
consent to abandon the monopoly
clause of its agreement with the
federal government, and permit the
construction ot railways anywhere
in the northwest. The Mail asserts
thnt the condition of this arrangement is that the government shall
guarantee C.P.R. bonds to the extent of $10,000,000, the amount
which is considered necessary to
construct new elevators and new
iron bridges, and complete the
equipment of the road. It has
long been felt that sooner or later,
the interest* of the oountry would
demand the abandonment of the
monopoly clause, and if this oan be
secured now by the proposed guarantee, we believe the arrangement
ought to be carried ont. It is somewhat suggestive, however, that this
proposal comes just after the announcement that an agreement has
been reached by the Canadian Pacific and the Northern. Pacifio
whereby the latter, presumably,
surrenders the Canadian business
for whioh it has hitherto been making* spirited bid. The Northern
Pacifio ia the only American road
that can hope to compete with any
kind of success with the C.P.R. for
the trade ot Canada, and it, by
mutual agreement, it is shut out
from that competition, the Cana
dian road will be able virtually to
maintain its monopoly independently
of the clause it professes its willing-
neu to cancel. Its only rival would
be the Grand Trunk, bnt that road
will not he able to reach more than
a very limited portion of tho very
large area of Canadian territory
lying weat of Ontario. If there is
any foundation for the Brandon
Mails announcement, therefore, the
rumored agreement between the
Northern and Canadian Pacifio is
probably the immediate cause of the
proposed change; and it will be in
otiki to oonlioer to what extent,
under the new circumstances, tho
abandoMMnt ot the obnoxious
clause will afford relief to the people.
It may be observed that the monopoly clause has indirectly done
great injury to the prospects of the
Canadian northwest. People who
were aware of the existence of the
clause, and believed it would seriouslyaffeot the progress and development el the oountry, refused to
take up lend In Canadian territory.
Tbooaands of them drifted fo the
other side of the boundary where
meM0ly.it it ttattti, waa not pro-
teetedby law. H the monopoly
otaMe thrtM be abolished, even if
IWebolMon does not result in vig
ottm mSmt. eoupetitkm, the fact
will bee* great benefit in promoting
the eettlement ot the country; and
we ■* iMKMd to think that
thousands of Canadians who have
ta|MHK inferior lands south ofthe
bouaony will return to make their
hottes in panada.

wdeutd .'. ',  . JACK'S CHRISTMAS BOX.
A Wmt tor the Ysosg.
It was Christmas-eve. A good old-
'ashione.l Christinas too, every one said,
but Jack Turner shook his head.
"It's all very well to hsve plenty of
snow and ice when you can stay indoors
with your feet on the lender, or put on
furs whan yon want to go out," he Baid
to his mother; "but when you haven't a
tire, rin.l have to wear the same smock
thnt you wore ia tho summer, it's quite
dirlere.it."
"Never mind, Jack," said the widow
brightly; "I'm going to take this dress
home this evening; and if you go to bed
early you will keep pretty warm, snd
I'll wuig in "l>,B'> w**u sods nice little
bit ol meat for tomorrow."
"No plum-piy'ding, mother?" said
Jack, and then he hung his bead,
ashamed that he had added to his
mother's burden hit letting ber He what
most Iroriiiled him just then. He was
only a l,oy of twelve, and cold toes and
thiu clothing seemed very little compared
to the misery of a Christmas without a
pudding.
"I'll see, Jack, what I can do," said
Mrs. Turner as she folded up the dress.
"You tea the money will have to last us
many days, for 1 shall not get sny more
wor* till after tbe holidays sre over.
Cheer up, my boy; we have had a hard
life of it since your father died, but
please Ood wo will have a brighter
Clii'.stnias next year. Try ind bear the
disappouttihent brasely, iny boy, for the
sake of tbe Ssviow who did so much for
us."
"I'd like to do some grand thing,
mother; it can't matter much what I
think about our plum-pudding, and I'm
so hungry that I think after all I'd rattier
have au extm lump of bread and inesu"
"That's whnt we sll say, Jsck. We
all want to do great things; and yet if
we are not faithful in little things
how con we ever hope to do the great
ones? l)o you renumber the two lines
your father used tovay so often ?—
"Do the thing that's nearest, though it's dull at
whtlfe,
Uelplag, whea yen meet Duo, lone dogs over
stiles."
"Now, whilst I am out, just you think
Whether- you can help any one; of
course, it doesn't mean only dogs, it
means any one in difficulty or danger.
And now good-night, my boy, for I bope
you will tie fast asleep when I coiue
back. There Is some bread and cheese
in the cupboard."
Jack got out the bread and cheese, and
began to eat it; then, as the bells of the
village church burst Into a joyful peal,
he went to the door, and looked out.
The snow was thick on earth and tree,
and the moon shed a silvery light upon
all. At the end of the garden was a
pigeon-house which Mr. Turner had
built many years before, when his business wss prospering, aid along illness
hid not chained his purse.
"You poor little pigeons," aaid Jock
aloud;  "I eipeet you hav* more to
grumble at than I have, ior I don't be-
eve you cm pick tip any food now, ind
I forgot sll about you."
Then ha scstteredi big piece of his
bread just before the pigeon-house, and
thought how pleased tha birds would be
In the morning, . .   r   -   -
"Hallos! Jsck, Is that you?" said a'
cheery vorce. "Do you feel inclined for
ra moonlight trip? I've lost one of my
sh.'ep, and what's worse still, I've lost
Dash.1'
It was Fanner White, Who wis wry
clad,to have the chance ot a coinpaii on
in his search. Jack was very fund oi
I 'iwli, who had often gone fer walks w tli
him when tb* sheep were safely folded,
an I he was very sorry to hear that it
was more than four-snd-twenty houn
since anything had been ssen of him.
"I expect something want wrong with
the sheep, and Dsshls staying near it."
said the farmer, u they walked quickly
over ths erisp now. "The worst o< His
thst he would die of stevatka before he
would move from hia poet, If lta hu
found the sheep."
Just than a gnat of wind Haw the
sound of tha bells towards than, ud the
farmer weat on.
"A fine thing it is, too, to ba tramping
like Mils on a Christmas-eve alter a lost
sheep and*bat da* Aa* yet it Isn't

■•Shall the PeoBle Mlnat"
This question is put with tone In the
July issue of the Catholic World, hy tbe
Rev. Alfred Young, a Paulist father of
Sew York City.
Father Young makes a strong plea for
crongregational singing in the Catholic
Ohurch. He says it is a misnomer to call
the singers in the service of the church
i choir. The "choir" is a portion of the
sanctuary. Tbe singers who sit in this
rrhoir are, properly sneaking, the "chorus,"
md their true function is to lead the congregation in tho singing, and not to do
rho singing for the congregation. It is
:rue that this idea has been largely lost
sight of in both Catholic md Protestant
'rrongregstions, but in Father Young's
opinion it is the only true idea. And Ire
ittributes muoh of the listlenraoss Unit
;lmracterizes modern congregations to the
fact that it is ignored.
"When," he says, "the people »ro deprived of participation in the services of
religion by being debarred the only way
they can actively share in them, they in
great part fall back into a dull, perfunctory, ignorant attendance, cor.tent with a
re-perusal of the same invariable round of
piously worded prayers, winch they lind
in their 'Paths to Paradise,' 'Keys of
Heaven', 'Golden Manuals,' or some other
prayer books, glad to be relieved occasionally by quietly sitting still, thinking of
nothing in particular and enjoying the
unreligious singing by the 'choir.'
Many and many a time I havo wondered whether the intelligent men and
women at high mass were not more or
less ashamed of being silent spectators of
the public oflices of their church—a position which they aro forced to assume by
the false tradition 1 have been combating.
I havo fancied that, despite their respect
for authority and readiness to bclievo it
must be all right, their natural sense of
humiliation at being thus made nothing
of—the high miss being performed by
the performers duly appointed just thu
same whether they were there or not—
did not sometimes make them suspect
that it was aot, after all, just what it
should be."
Theso words are significant ot the
marked tendency in the liturgical ns
well as in the non-liturgical bodies to
make public service increasingly of interest and of practical value tothe individual worshipper. They also indicate
the growth of the American spirit of daring to adopt the now life it promise to be
better than the old.
A Word to Ihe Boys.
. If we ire to havo drunkards in tho
future, some of them aro to come from
the boys to whom I am now writing, and
I ask you if you want to bu ono of them ?
No I of course you don't!
Well, I have a plan that is just as suro
to save you from such state as the sun is
to rise to-morrow. It nover railed it will
never fail; and it is worth knowing.
Never touch lkpior in any form. That Ts
the plan, and it is not only worth knowing, but it is worth putting into practice.
I know you don't drink now, and it
seems to you ss il you never would.
But your temptation will come, and it
probably will come in this way. You will
find yourself some time with a number ol
companions, and they will have a bottle
of wine on tho table. They will drink,
and offer it to you. They will regard il
as a manly practice, ind very likely thev
will look on you as a milksop if you don I
Indnlge with them. Theu what will vou
do? Will you say, "No, no I none ol
that staff for me I" Or will you take the
glass, with your common-sense protesting
and your conscience making tli* wholo
draught bitter, ami a feeling that von have
.lamrrrrcil yminrolf, nnrl then go oft with a
hot bead and a skulking soul that at once
beginsto make apologies for itself, and
will keep doing so during all its life ?
Boys, do not become drunkards.

Scrofula
Is one of the most fatal scourges which
afflict mankind. It is often inherited,
but may be the result ol improper vaccination, mercurial poison, uncleanlineas,
and various other causes. Caronlo Sores,
Ulcers, Abscesses, Cancerous Humors,
and, in some oases, Emaciation and Consumption, result from a scrofulous condition of the blood, This disease can bs
cured bythe use of Ayer's SarsapariUa.

A HOMECOMPANY,
This Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Seouruy offered to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business In Canada,
It has no schemes of insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders oannot be mlBled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the publlo oan be readily understood, lta cash statement showing every Item of income and how expen-
Iti position Is ascertained annually from
a detailed valuation In whioh every item
of liability li Included.
Its progress hai been unexampled In
tbe hfitory of Insurance In Canada.
Ita policies are indisputable after three
years, and non-forfeitable after two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed npon an equitable oasis. The profits to one olass of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other olass, which
method affords superior advantages over
tbe uniform bonus plan of distribution.

At tho request of hia many friends
and supporters in the city, His Worship Mayor Fell, it ia reported, has
consented to again become a candidate for the representation of this city
in the Commons of Canada at Ottawa.
Mr. Fell has strong claims on this
constituency, in which he has resided
for so many years, and conducted a
successful business. His Worship
possesses many of the qualities essential in a representative. He has a
knowledge of the requirements of tho
city from a commercial and shipping
standpoint, as well as to express himself clearly and intelligently upon any
question arising for discussion. The
position is one in which hia friends
claim he can be of service to Victoria
and her interests. Other names are
already mentioned—that of Mr. E. G.
Prior being freely canvassed. Ho is
a hale fellow well met and has many
friends, who deem him to be "the

AaAdrentnr with Panthers.
It is an old Baying, "what strange
things a person sees when he hasn't
got a gun," This was exactly what
constable Carty said the day before
yesterday when he met a couple of
panthers., Mr. Carty was driving
along the road leading from Clover
valley in the Sepentine Flats, and while
paising through some timber was surprised to see two large beasts walk
quietly out of the bushes and stop on
the middle of the path. Tho panthers,
for such they turned out to |. be, ' wero
only twenty paces ahead of the horse,
and, as the constable did not havo a
gun, he was puzzled for a moment as
to the best course to adopt towards
them. After a moments thought he decided to keep right ahead, aud, if the
panthers molested him in any way, he
would arrest them for obstructing tho
highway. The scheme proved -successful and although the beasts cast a
longing eye at the nice fat horse, they
saw it would be uieleas to make nny
attempt to devour it whilo the constable was on the ground. Tho panthers were both very lar^e and appeared to be in good condition; they have
been seen in the neighborhood several
times of late and it is probable they
will Boon fall victims to their temerity.

A Valuable Estate.
Mr. Wm. Clarkson, one of the original settlers In this city, offers for sale
his entire estate, of which particulars
will be found in our advertising columns. This estate comprises about
15 acres of very valuable city property,
and over 1800 acres outside (he city
limits. The first block is situated on
Fraser River, beyond the Pitt, and is
mostly prairie. The second lot is
about a mile from the city, fronting on
the south Bide of the Fraser. The
third lot lies on Douglas street, and
fronts on Burnaby Lake. The property
known as the homestead is one of the
choicest in tho city. Upon this property Mr. Clarkson has expended the
labor of mnny of the best years of his
life, and it is well stocked with a tine
variety of bearing fruit trees. This
orchard will return a handsome income
to any person who gets possession of
it. There- are two fine residences
erected thereon, supplied with overy
convenience. The location is healthy
and the view excellent. In the rear
of the homestead is n ti-acro plot planted with young fruit trees, many of
whioh sre bearing. Mr. Clarkson's
failing sight and advancing years
have made It impossible for him tu give
proper attention to these fine properties, and he hss determined to sell.
Any person looking for au investment
will do well to see him.

The case of Woods, Turner & Gamble vs. James Kennedy came up today beforo Hon. Mr. Justico Mo-
Creight and a special jury. Mr. McColl (Corbould *t McColl) appeared
for tho plantifl's and Mr. Kennedy np-
ponred for himself. Buforc going un
with the case Mr. McColl stated that
his clients had no wish to proas tho
action. Thoy had intimated to dft.
that if ho would mako a retraction
and apology it would bo satisfactory,
but this had been refused. Even now
ho was instructed to say that if dft.
would retract his statcmeut and nay
actual costs of tho proceedings, fur-
thor action would cease.
Mr. Kennedy replied thnt he could
not consistently retract. To do bo
would be to confess that he had lied
in the first place.
Mr. McColl then addressed the jury
Betting out tho facts of the case. The
dft. had written a letter to the Columbian charging pits., in effect, with
accepting payment for the same
piece of work from Mr. McDonough
and from the city council. After the charge had been denied, it had
boon roitovntotl.     Tho    vopututoon    of
the firm had been assailed, and it was
not possible to say to what extent
The ptfs. did not ask for damages, but
simply desired to have themselves vindicated. Since dft. hid refused to
retract,there was no course loft but
to proceed.
After establishing the publication
and authorship of the letters, Mr. McColl called C. E. Woods who swore
that tho two charges were for two
different kinds of work. One was
for serveying a lot, and tho other for
giving the grade for. tho sidewalk of
two lots. They were done on different days, and required the use of
different instrument!. The charges
wero tho ordinary ones made for such
work.
This closed the case for pit's., and
after an adjournment, Mr. Kennedy
addressed tho jury at considerable
length. He contended that he had
made uo charge against plf a., but that
his object had been to expose the
council. He expressed the moat profound regard for every member of tho
firm of Wcuds, Turner & Gmnlbe. and
he asserted tho correctness of tho
statement contained in his letters.
Aftor calling two witnesses, whoso
evidence was immaterial, C. McDonough stated he had paid a bill of $10
from plfg., which he understood covered both tho survey of tho lot and the
grades; the impression caino from uo
outside source; was simply an impression of his own.
The next witness wus Mr. Kennedy
himself, who,,at great length, went
over the history of tho transaction.
He supposed that the $10 charge covered both the, survey and the grade;
hact never asked for the sidewalk grade.
C. E. Woods (re called) said it was
Kennedy, on behalf of McDonough,
who asked to have the lot surveyed; it
was the board of works who gave instruction to fix tho the grado of the
sidewalk; witness had charge of tho
former work, and Turner of the latter.
His Lordship read the law of libel
and clearly denned the duty of the
jury in the premises. Ho pointed
out that the two bills presented by
Wjjp^ft. ^urner & Gamble wero for
distinctly different work, as shown by
the bills themselves and by dft's own
evidence. He evidently held the op
inion that tha letters contained a
libel.
The jury retired at 4 o'clock, and
after a brief absence returned with a
verdict against the defendant, fixing
damage* at 91 and costs.
Christmas Displays.
The displays of Christmas and holiday goods (houghnat the city aro generally acknowleged to be far ahead of
tho showing mado lost yenr. Tho
reason assigned for this is the increased competition in almost every line
which has incited the merchants and
dealers to pay moro attention to outward show and thus draw the attention
of tho public to thu articles for sale.
Apart from advertising, a good shop
display is probably the best means of
drawing trado. The dry goods mer
chants and dealers in fancy articles
make a splendid display of holiday
gcods, and their foresight, in procuring the best linos nn tho market, has
been amply rewarded by the large
pntri.nago they hnvo received. The
erocets, who are fully alive to tho increasing demand for fino goods, have
not boon behind their brethern in
other branches of trado in suiting their
etneks to the public demands. In
staple and fancy groceries stocks aro
largo and complete, and, particularly
iu the fancy lino?, many articlos hitherto unknown to this market are to
bu found en the shelves. Tlio Christmas display made by the butchers this
year excels.all previous efforts of ihuse
enterprising caterers, and a visit to
any of the shops is well worth the
trouble. Probably the best showing
in this line is made hy Mr ft. Dickinson, whose shop is fairly packed with
the must tempting cuts, roasts joints,
etc., on the market. It would be hard
to hams anyth<ng iu tho meat or poultry Him that Mr. DickiuBon cannot
produce iu a very few moments. Tho
system observed in arranging tho different linos produces a vory striking
effort; on ono side hang immense
quarters (if magnificent beef, which,
from their tempting appearance, tell
that oareful butchering was observed
inpieparing them for the market.
The opposite side is devoted principally to carcasses of well fed mutton,
which, by tho way, is the only meat iu
the shop not raised in British Columbia. Pork, sucking pigs, dressed nml
deoratod, turkeys, geese, ducks nnd
chickens in large numbers, are nicely
arrsnged on tho racks in front Of the
shop and across the shop inside. One
particular feature in the display is the
splendid showing of home cured hams
and bacon. The shop is very nicely
decorated with flags transparencies,
evergreens mid holly, and on the
wh-'I-i presents a very pleasing appearance. VanVolkenburg & Brother
havo also a very magnificent assortment of meats on display.   The beef
is all prime quality, and better would
be hard to find on any market. Chickens, ducks, goese mid turkeys, plump
and nicely dressed, nre arranged in
tempting rows along tho Bhnp. An
immense pig, weighing in tho neighborhood of 5001bs., decorates tho centre
of the doorway: it is large in size but
to all appearance is aa tonder as a
sucking pig. Much taste has been ob"
served in arranging tho decorations,
which consist of flags, mottoes, garlands and festoons of evergreens, rosettes and buoquots. Mr. Porter, who
has oharge of the shop, devised the arrangements, is justly proud of the exhibit, Mr. W. B. Townsend'» shop on
Front street presents a holiday appearance and follows, both in the display
of meats and in decorations, closely in
footsteps of his competitors. His display of beef is fully up to that made
by tho other shops, and iu poultry,
ducks and goose the exhibit is excellent. A visit to any of theso shops
will prove to tho intending purchaser
that the wants of the people of Westminster havo been fully anticipated
and well provided for.
Amoko the Warmest Advocates of
the use of Northrop k Lyman's Vege
table Discovery and Dpspeptic Cure are
lat'ies formerly in delicate health, whoso
vigor and bodily regularity have been
been restored by it. Cases of debility of
longstanding, chronic biliousness,weakness of the bock and kidneys, feminine
ailments, and obstinate types of nervous
indigestion are overcome by it.
