Nbw York, April 15.—Randolph Wy-
mnn, who died at his home here on
Sunday evening, waa a retired real estate owner, whose early life was spent
in the California gold fields in '411. Mr.
Wymon came to New York from Germany in 1686, and since that time barring the few years in California, lie has
centered his business interests in this
city. He was an extensive traveller, a
great student and a lover of literature,
and a man of striking personal appearance greatly resembling Henry Ward
Beecher. Mr. Wyman's death was the
Immediate result of injuries sustained
on the fifth inst. when he was knocked
down and run over by a carelessly managed horse, breaking his thigh. Ho was
81 years old, and leaves a widow, two
sons and two daughters. The funeral
will take place to-morrow morning at
10 o'clock from his late residence.

Booth said to-night iu answer to the
story that Lawrence Barratt has written
to him of the relapse of his malady tbat
would prevent him from acting next
season: " There is no truth whatever In
the rumor. All my recent letters from
Barratt have been most cheerful in tone,
both as regards his physical condition
and outlook for next season. In fact his
moro recent letters, and his last one in
Earticular, dated Nice, which I received
ist week, is remarkably cheerful. I
expect to see him on June 1st next, and
there iB no doubt about his being able to
act next season."

St. Louis, April 15.—A police officer
found tbe body of a man swinging by
the neck in the park this morning. It
has been Identified as that of Henry
Borck, an old engineer, who has been
out of work for some months. He was
a member of Lincoln Lodge, Knights of
Honor, in which his life was insured for
$8,000. It transpired at the inquest
that Borck had committed suicide in
order that his children might receive
the $3000 insurance on his life. He was
afraid that if he lived much longer he
would bo unable to keep up with hiB
assessments. He took his life to save
bis children from starvation.
after a scene followed between him and
Mr. Davin, when the latter, among
other things, wanted that second homesteads should be granted to settlers;
land to be set upart for a territorial university, and the establishment of an irri-
Sation system. AH these motions were
eclarea lost on a division. Mr. Davin
abused Mr. Dewdney and was called to
order. The House at times was in a
terrible uproar. Mr. Davin, although
rebuked by Sir John Macdonald, continued his harrangue, alsoatttickingMr.
Blake. His motion for investigating
the conduct of Commissioner Herchmer
(the Commissioner of the Northwest
Mounted Police) was voted downj He
said that Mr. Dewdney had fattened his
purse for ten yours at the public expense. The Minister of the Interior
shouted back: "Withdraw that or I
will take steps to make you do so." He
then went for Mr. Davin, accusing him
of being hilarious when the Governor-
General visited Regina*. If Mr. Davin
had got his deserts lie would have been
conducted to the guard-room. Mr. Dnlv
and Mr. Davin also indulged iu tilts.
Imperial Parliament.
London, April 14.—In the House of
Commons this evening, Sir James Ferguson, Under Foreign Secretary, stated
thut the negotiations witli Portugal in
regard to Dolagoa Bay, Musbonoluland,
were still unsettled. Ho would not,
howovor, doubt tho good faith of the
Portuguese Government, which had'de-
clared that it would not sanction any
expedition pending the negotiations.
Germany, ho said, had sent assurances
thut Emin Pasha's expedition would be
confined to the German sphere. Sir
James Ferguson further stated that
the Government was not averse to submitting the Newfoundlnnd difficulty to
arbitration, but it was obviously impossible to succeed in that way unless all
parties agreed to the order of reference.

A Pair of Fooli.
Louisville Ky., April" 15.—A. sensational murder occurred near Springfield,
Ky., this morning. While quarreling
over their wives Abraham Kelly shot
and instantly killed Samuel Logan, a
well-known citizen of Springfield. Both
men were but recently married. The
men talked of their wives as newly
made husbands aro wont to do, and
finally from bantering on the reipective
merits and demerits of their wives, the
joking gradually changed to bitter remarks. Kelly then went away, but in a
short time he returned armed with an
army musket. Walking quietly toward
Logan he advanced to within 100 yards
of his victim, when, without a word he
fired full at Logan who fell with blood
flowing from his wounds. Kelly escaped
to the wood and up to to-night has not
beon captured.

Dying Again.
London, April 15.—Private accounts
from The Haguo report the king of the
Netherlands to be lu such a precarious
state that ho may now die at any moment, and in fact every preparation is
being quletley made thore in anticipation of his majesty's demise. All state
business is now transacted with the
ministers by Queen Emma, as the king
is practically an imbecile and it is impossible that ho will long survive iu his
present condition of mental and physical decrepitude. The court physicians
are astonished that the king has lived
so long.

A London, England, cablegram received is as follows: "Hon. Henry Boyle
started yesterday for Africa in search of
his brother, Viscount Boyle, who,
through their father's sudden death has
become Earl of Shannon. Seven years
ago Viscount Boyle resigned his commission in the army, when he was joined,
by his brother Henry in purchasing a
ranch in Western Canada. This undertaking proved a failure, and the latter
gentleman returned to England. Viscount Boyle has since been unheard of,
except through an inn-keeper, who saw
him two years ago in a mining camp.
Efforts were made last year to discover
his whereabouts without any result,
which is most inexplicable, as -he was
once a well-known member of the Canadian-Northwest Assembly. He now
succeeds to all the family titles and
estates." I knew the Viscount well,
and was a companion of his when he
made Regina his headquarters, and at
other times.
The Ottawa Free Press of Saturday
last contains the following: The new
tariff duties ou pork are unanimously
denounced by the lumberman and work-
ingmen of Ottawa, and on tho part of
the lumber firms nt least the most determined' and active opposition is being
shown.
The Ottawa Free Press of Tuesday says:
It has been known for some timo that
the relations between Mr. Dewdney, the
minister of the interior, and the Conservative members representing Manitoba
and Northwest constituencies iu the
House of Commons have been considerably strained. Some days ago Mr. Daly
of Selkirk, organized n deputation of
Tory members to wait upon Mr. Dewdney and talk to him pretty plainly in regard to the incapacity he has displayed
as a minister und the contemptuous
manner in which he has treated their
complaints and representations with
respect to patronage, and other matters
affecting their respective districts. The
speeches of Messrs, Davin and Daly ou
the immigration question indicated
pretty clearly that matters had not
proved by their interview. There are
now iu the city a large number of prominent Northwest men on various missions,
and to these Mr, Dewdney has spoken
pretty plainly with respect to his attitude towards his fellow members from
Manitoba and the Northwest. He told
ono gentleman yesterday that he did not
care a blank how much the men from
the territories or Manitoba kicked
against his acts, as he intended to seek
a constituency in British Columbia next
election. British Columbians now
speak of Mr. Dewdney as their minister,
and boast that he is doing moro for their
Province than for tho region which ho
is supposed to represent in the cabinet.
The special committee appointed to
examine ballot papers and ballot boxes
met in the tower room with Hon. J. A.
Chapleau in the chair. The room wus
completely filled with ballot boxes of
various sizes, shapes and designs, some
of which showed a good deal of ingenuity. Tho whole morning was occupied with examining the various inventions, but of course no decision was
reached. Patent ballot papers wero
shown by Messrs. O. Durocher, and P.
H. Chabot, and Arvias Thibault, of Ottawa, and new designs for ballot boxes
by P. E. Jones, of Hagnrsville, Out.,

It is understood that tbe Select committee of the House of Commons up-
Kinted to investigate the charges of
.ting preferred by Mr, Lister against
General Middleton will recommend that
the government pay Charles Bremner
$4,500 for the furs taken from him under the general's orders. L'Etendni'd
urges that the committee should declare
in their report that when the property
of a rebel is confiscated it belongs to the
crown and not to the officer who orders
the confiscation; that the Imperial Government be asked to recall General Middleton at once and that Hayter Reed,
Indian commissioner, aud Samuel Bed-
son, warden of Manitoba penitentiary,
be dismissed for complication iu the
looting business,

(.Prowl Our Own Correspondent.)
Mr. Speaker took the chair at 2:5 p.
m.   Prayers by Rev. Mr, Starr.
Mr. Cunningham moved the following
resolution:
Whereas a resolution praying His
Honor, the Lieutenant-Governor, to call
the attention of the Dominion Government to the omiBsion in the estimates
for tho current year of an appropriation
for a subsidy for currying Her Majesty's
maM_i between the ports of New Westminster and Victoria, wus unanimously
adopted by this House on the 18th day
of February, 1890.
And whereas the said resolution wus
duly transmitted by His Honor, and a
reply thereto has been received und presented to this House.
And whereas it appears from tlie tenor
of said reply that the Dominion Government has not fully understood tiio nature and extent of the inconvenience und
serious commercial loss that must bo
sustained by the settlors und those engaged in the various industrial enterprises on the Fraser River, between
New Westminster and the Gulf of Georgia, by the discontinuance of said mail
(subsidy) service.
And whereas it is the opinion of this
House that it is the first duty of the Dominion Government to encourage and
foster the development of agriculture,
lumbering, fishing, and mining throughout the Province by affording ample
mail facilities, irrespective of an apparent temporary loss to the revenue of
the Post Office Department.
Be it therefore resolved, that an humble address be presented to His Honor,
the Lieutenant-Governor, praying His
Honor to further urge upon the Dominion Government the pressing necessity
of maintaining a tri-weekly mail service
between the aforesaid ports.
The mover said this matter was not u
local, but a provincial one. He hoped
tbe House would unite in passing this
resolution in such a manner as would
most effectually convince tho Dominion
Government of the importance of this
deeply felt want. In this ago of rapid
transit, when vast industries are springing into existence throughout tbe extent of this Province, and when the ne-
ccssity for quick communication between
points becomes not only a subject of extreme importance, but actually imperative, it is only right that tho best efforts
of this House should be directed to the
attainment of an object which is to prove
of immense benefit, not* alone to the
residents of the Fraser's banks, of West-
minster and Victoria, but to the whole
Province. The propagators of those industries to which he had reference must
receive the support to their efforts which
was absolutely necessary, namely a regular nnd frequent mail service. And
hi asking tho House to adopt unanimously a resolution fraught with so
much' importance to the people, tho
trade and tlie best interests of this Province, ho did not think ho was exceeding the bounds of reason or asking for
that which might be deemed immoderate. It would lie quite superfluous for
him to dwell upon the marvellous Btridcs
taken within tho past few years by that
portion of the Province along the bunks
of the lower Fraser River. Everyone
was conversant with tho boundless natural wealth, tbo magnificent climate
and the unsurpassed advantages of that
great garden. And that favored region
wus iiihubitcd by a people the fame of
whose industry, enterprise and energy
is known und respected far beyond the
limits of this Province. Bearing those
patent facts in mind, did it seem just or
equitable that the appeal of t this
people for so simple nn ordinary
a convenience ns a tri-weekly
mail service, should pnsB almost unheeded by the Dominion Government?
To his mind tho Dominion Government
was doing a serious injustice to this
Province. Without a reasonably frequent mail service line, was it to be expected that the enterprise nnd energy
of the people could be sustained ? Without proper postal accommodation half of
the benefits accruing from trade is lost,
und in our present state of progress in
this Province, everyone knows but too
well that we cannot afford tobesoslight-
ed in a matter with which our deepest
interests nre indissolubly bound up.
Better postal facilities we must havo
else our young und flourishing trade will
languish und die. Tho mail is an inseparable concomitant of trade, modern
trade. Commerce called the mails into
existence; but commerce cannot exist a
week without this child of her own
creation. Tako away the mails and
where is your trade? Why you may aB
well take the trade, too. (Laughter).
Ho trusted that the Houso would signify its approval of this resolution by
voting unanimously in favor thereof.
(Applause).
Hon. Mr. Turner said he had pleasure
in seconding this resolution. Tlie mail
service at the present time was being
neglected, und tho importance of the
district demands a fnr hotter mail service than exists to-day. He believed
tlie Dominion Government was neglecting this Province in this respect. He
could not say vory much iu the matter
as the honorablo mover went into this
subject so extensivoly nnd &o thoroughly,
that ho gave nobody else a chance to
speak; but ho heartily supported the
resolution. •
Hon. Mr. Robson said tho service as
it existed now was of no practical value.
The truo object of a mail service ou this
route would be to establish a rogulur
steamboat service. Tho mcro carrying
of letters and papers wns only a small
part of tbo service. The whole difficulty
about tills service seems to uriso from a
small picayunlsh way of doing business
by tlie department officials at Ottawa.
If there is only one mail sorvicoaweok
it stands to reason that the steamboat
people will run the best to suit themselves. Ho sincerely hoped that tho
passing of this resolution would induce
tho department at Ottawa to reconsider
its decision and look ut this mutter as a
public measure and not a mere trifling
departmental affair.
Mr. Orr was in favor of the spirit of
tho resolution, hut hoped that when the
Government wore dealing with the
matter they would see (.he necessity of
establishing a weekly line up the coast.
Mr. Liulnor expatiated upon tho many
important changes that had taken place
along the bunks of tho Lower Fraser.
He had beon postmaster of that section
for some time and as incumbcint of that
important post had been the rcclpiont
of the magnificent stipend of $10 per
vear, and therefore knew what ho wbb
telling about. (Laughter). He thought
this matter of mail sorvico.for the Frusor
should bo pressed upon tho attention of
the Dominion Government in unmistakable language. Tho resolution carried unanimously.        ■

bull A Co. for lease of water lot. Further time granted.

THE COMING CONTEST.
"Where tho carcass is there will the
eagles be gathered together," says an
indubitable authority, and we have
continual exemplifications of the fact in
overy-day human affairs. A political
contest is not exactly an every-day
affair, but it happens often enough to'
note the operation of the samo phenomenon. And tho noble birds have begun
to swoop down on the vacant Beat for
Ottawa. This is perfectly right and
proper, someone must occupy It; but
it Ib for the electors to select that aspirant from among the whole number who,
in thoir judgment, cares the least about
tbe "pickings" and is most impressed
with the honors and responsibilities- of
the position, und exhibits au intelligent
apprehension of tha wants nnd requirements of the constituency, of the Province, and of tho Dominion at large, and
of tbe duties devolving upon him aB a
representative, not of interests, cliques,
or rings, but of the suffrages of the
people. The man that Westminster
District shall send to Ottawa to make
up the British Columbia contingent of
representatives should, withal, be an
able man, one who has decided opinions,
not only upon merely local questions,
but upon those of a Provincial and
Dominion scope, nnd who iB able to express them with sufficient force and
dignity to command the attention nnd
respect ef the House. In short, he should
approach as nearly the ideal member as
the material in tho District, with all the
circumstances considered, will supply.
If we cannot rake up an ideal repre-
sontative,we should not stop short of the
next best thing. The choice is an important one, and tbe time is short. The
writ, it is said, has already been issued
aud will be here in a few days. Let no
one who is convinced that he can servs
his country better than the "good men
and true" who havo already been announced, refrain from placing himself
in the people's hands. Other things
being equal, the man who can publicly
and intelligently show the best reasons,
upon public grounds, for hia candidature
should receive the confidence and support of the electors.
THE SEAMY SIDE.
A writer in one of the English reviews, says an exchange, complaint of
the deterioration of society which has
taken place among " the upper ten
" thousand" in his own country during
the present generation. He affirms of
thiB class that they are a moro vulgar
people than they once wore, and, what
is more to be regretted, that this growing vulgarity is not something which
appertains to the surface, but has its
root in a lower social and moral tone.
So far as merely surface virtues and
graces are concerned, they have improved. Their travelling manners are
bettor than they were formerly. Their
hauteur has been modified and they
have learned to treat strangers with
greater deference and respect. And yet,
with all this and more that is commend-
nblo iu the well-bred people of the
period, there is everywhere discernible
among them the presence of a lower
social tone. Nor can this be accounted
for by the growth of the population. It
Is rather, perhaps, to be regarded as an
incident of a state of political and social
tradition. Money has, apparently, acquired an influence which it never had
beforo. Wealth, to an extent which it
never did before, is taking too place of
rank and fame, and everything else
which served to give social distinction in
the past.
No one is excluded from the very
highest social circles, according to this
writer, " if he be only rich enough to
" form a spot—soinetimeB a very black
" one—of attraction to the crowd." The
" only question of importance is wheth-
" er he haa means to entertain sump-
" tuouBly, lavishly; and ultimately, If
" there should be daughters, whether
" their positions are on a corresponding
" scale." And this feeling is not confined to the young and thoughtless, who
might be expected to be caught with this
glare. Even the venerable dowager,
who, one would imagine, must be suffering from social, as well as physical, indigestion,bares her shoulders gladly, "as
" martyrs of old bared their throats to
" the punishment of another crush."
And all for what? Not for the purpose
of bringing together the most agreeable
elements of society for tho exchange of
thought and sentiment, or for the display of wit and humor, which are the
Bpice and poetry of life, but for the purpose of witnessing and taking part In
a vulgar display—vulgar because of Its
costliness and profusion. Prodigality,
not unf.eqiu.ntly allied to ostentation,
follows as the natural sequence of accepting a moneyed standard in society.
Of the prodigality, which is an incident of this social deterioration, some
striking illustrations are given. "Who
" dares to invite his friends," it iB asked,
"to a simple English dinner with dry
" sherry and sound claret? He must
" have champagne and a French cook,
"or abstain from hospitality." Even
flowers aro made to minister to a vulgar
taste by thoir excessive costliness, and
incongruous use. Hundreds of pounds
are spent in flowers for a single night.
And of the absurd uses to which these
objects of beauty are sometimes put
an Illustration is given from what the
writer himself observed. He had Been
a banister covered with priceless orchids.
And oi course, where hospitality is dispensed on this expensive and ostentatious scale, even tho semblance of privacy can scarcely be maintained. The
hostess, if she desired it, could scarcely
be safe from the interviewer. But when
she Is not desirlous of anything of the
sort, which appears to be generally the
case, all the facts connected with her
entertainment and her guests are apt
to find their way into the society papers.
And thus does the vulgarizing process
go on, according to the perhaps, rather
peBimiBtic writer quoted.
No wonder, this author thinks, that
conversation is coming to be reckoned
among the lost arts. The demand for it
no longer exists. The brilliant talkers
of other times, who in their day it waa
considered the greatest privilege to hear,
would at present be voted a bore by
people whose only claim to social distinction lies iu the weight of their purse.
Who would or could talk with such
people for listeners ? To see and to be
Been constitute the sole end of the entertainments of the period. And in order to accomplish this everybody is
necessarily in a hurry, and in the perpetual bustle conversation Ib out of the
question. The writer recalls the scenes
which he had witnessed twenty years
ago, when the most refined circle In
London met of evenings in a certain
drawing-room, where tea and lemonade
were the only refreshment, and adds
that such simple, unostentatious gatherings would Btill be the rule abroad,
where, as he alleges, the process of
social deterioration has not gone bo far
as it has in Loudon; but he Ib of the
opinion that but few, if any, in the
British metropolis would dare to act
upon the rule, now that entertainments
are so often estimated according to what
they coBt. _^^^___i^
SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.

-AND-
At the opening of a culinary exhibition in Paris, some distinguished guests
were entertained at a table on which
were Bet 200 different dtshes differently
cooked.
A luminous projectile to be fired from
a gun is the idea of a Russian officer.
He claims great usefulness for It in discovering the movements of hostile vessels in a naval contest at night.
A remarkable bibliographical curiosity Ib a Chinese translation of an English engineering work, forming the first
Chinese work on the construction of
highways and railroads. The title is
something like this: "Easay upon construction ; Mattbeson haa given the idea;
Englishman Fryer and Chang Tien have
translated it." The book is printed in
large characters on fine rice paper, and
is bound in rrtsewood covere fastened
with silk ribbons, silk inner covers enclosing chapters.
Modern Sredb of Insanity.—The recent increase of insanity shown by most
countries is attributed by an eminent
French physician, Dr. Gamier, to exces-
sive brain work and alcoholism, Cases
from other causes have not become moro
numerous. Very curiously, the increase
is greater among females than males,
the number of male maniacs from alcoholic causes having doubled in 15 years,
while that of the female insane from the
same causes has much more than
doubled in the time.
Patience in Science.—Whether in
original investigation or in elaborating
work already done, the labors of scientific men are slow, and exhausting. The
great "Prodrome of Plants," begun by
the elder De Candolle in 1810 and closed
by his son in 1873 with the 17th volume
had to be discontinued with the completion of the Dicotyledons. Though
other botanists assisted, the task was
too great to be carried further. It was
estimated that tho Phanerogams—embracing some 100,000 species—might be
completed in 15 or 16 years if divided
among 25 botanists. In the time of the
elder De Candolle, tlie botanist was
able to elaborate some 10 species a day,
but modern requirements reduce tbo
possible number to about one species
per day.
Coughing from Ear Irritation.—
Some cases of obstinate cough reported
by Dr. A. E. Palmer show how remarkably close are the relations to each
other of different parts of the body, and
demonstrate the folly of indiscriminately
dosing syinptons. In the case of one
patient, 45 years old, examination of
throat and lungs failed to reveal any
cause of the cough (which was accompanied with little expectoration), when
by accident it waB discovered that the
ears were much inflamed and very sensitive, aud that slight irritation of them
waB followed by paroxysma of coughing.
The ears were treated, and the cough
ceased Two subsequent cases of troublesome coughing, on ono of which repeated
consultation for supposed lung trouble
had been held—proved to be due to ear
disease.

SAPPERTON.
Lots in the Sub-Division of Lot 2,

manding an unsurpassed view of the Fraser River in one direction, and Queen's Park and the upper portion of the City in the
other. This property is only about one quarter of a mile from
the Brunette Mills, and is the best locality in Sapperton either for
residence or speculation.
Western Addition.
A few blocks and lots in the Western Addition to the City of New Westminster, Sub-Division of Lot 172, formerly the White Estate.
This sub-division, consisting of 600 lots, was placed upon tho
market by us a short time ago, and so eager were purchasers to
buy that the entire 600 lots wore sold out within one month. We
are now offering the above property at slightly advanced rates on
behalf of former purchasers. Thoso who missed the chance of
buying at first prices hav™ yet an opportunity of investing at
prices that cannot fail to yield a good profit. We believe that
this is the best speculative property in the City of New Westminster.

NORTH  ARM.
146 acres in Lot 165, near the North Arm Road,
about 2 1-2 miles west of the New Westminster Oity
Post-office, at $150 per aore.
This is lino fertile soil, chiefly prairie, and lies woll. It
has becomo a maxim that cities grow westward, and Now Westminster is proving no exception to the rule. City lots west of
Edinburgh Street, along the North Arm road, have doubled in
value in less than a year, while acre tracts have, in the same
time, in some instances more than trebled. When the proposed
extension of Columbia Street to the Westerly City Boundary is
completed, the North Arm will becomo the best suburban section
of the Oity. Moreover, it is confidently expected by many that
the route of the Electric Railway to Vancouver will traverse this
seotion. Our shrewdest speculators are realizing the possibilities
of this portion of the City, and the many sales of acre property
in the vicinity recently, indicate that land in the direction of the
North Arm is looked upon as one of the best places for investment in the District.   Prices are bound to advance rapidly.
In addition to the above we have a large list of
City and Suburban Property, at moderate prices and
on fevorable terms, of whioh we invite examination.

Charles Wood has for many years purchased sponges for a drug firm of Boston. Talking of the article the other
day he said:
"Good sponges have become so expensive that they are a luxury to be enjoyed only by those well to do. Of
course you can buy a reef sponge cheap,
a small one costing only a few cents;
but if you want a Turkey cup sponge
large enough for bathing purposes you
will have to pay V4 or $5. Sponges
come all sizes; the largest one
I ever saw measured twenty inches
across. These very large sponges are
apt not to be perfect, and they do not
bring as good prices as smaller and more
perfect ones. The largest of the perfect
kind measures about fourteen inches
across the top and nine inches through,
such a sponffc being worth about 930.
It Is too large for bathing purposes, and
too expensive to he used In washing
carriages, and is kept by dealers for a
cbanoe customer. A good size bathing
sponge is about eight inches across the
top and five through, and is worth £8.
"The expensive sponges are bought
principally by physicians and dentists,
and are used much In administering
ether. There are very many people
who ean not tell the difference between
Turkey cups' and common reef sponges,
and they are astounded at the difference
in price. They are asked 88 for what
they think they can get just as good for
35 cents. There are sponges from
Florida called sheep's wool, whioh, in
the opinion of many buyers, are as good,
although muoh cheaper, for all practical
purposes as the silk ones. They are
used mainly for washing carriages, although they make a good bathing
sponge. Reef sponges come from Cuba
and Nassau, Turkey cups from around
islands of the archipelago. Sheep's
wool and reef sponges come in 10, so and
40 pound bales, and the finest of the
former, known as Book Island goods,
sell wholesale at from 83.80 to 83.15 per
pound. The Turkey cups are sorted at
London and Paris into three qualities
and sent to ua in batfs. They are sold
by tbe piece."—Boston Globe.
HOW TO GO TO SLEEP.
Some Interesting Remedies for Sleepless
■teas Suggested.
Correspondents have been supplying
this journal with various remedies for
sleeplessness. A curate in London is
afflicted in direct proportion to the mou-
* tai worry ami absence of air and exercise he bas to endure, and finds that "to
walk oven ono mile a day is a great
thing" in tho way of a remedy. At the
moment, be siiys, tho host thing one can
do is to got up, drink, half a glass of
water, and walk round tho room. The
slight alteration of cold and warmth has
a soporific effect. For a permanent result: "Livo healthily. Avoid too little
and too muoh exercise, food, particularly wine. Dine lightly, eating very little moat. Bntlio an hour before dinner,
not before going to bed. Oo something
in the evening that does not exoLte you,
Kuinothiug like whist, that docs itself
mechanically. Decide how much sleep
you ought to have—say eight hours—
and get up sternly whon you havo boen
in bed eight hours, however long you
have been awake. Increase your air
and exorcise gradually."
A journalist, whon suffering from an
over-excited brain, and finding his eyes
in constant movement, although tho
lids are closed, resolutely fixes the gaze
downward—say to tbe fuo. of tho hod-
while tho lids are kept closed. If his
sleeplessness arises from flatulence, ho
takes a remedy for that "A most
wretched liar-awake" of thirty-five
years' standing, who had for ton years
thought him;olf happy if ho could get
twenty minutes' sleep in the twenty-
four hours, took hot water—"a pint,
comfortably hot, one good hour beforo
otioh of my threo meuls, nnd ono the
last thing at night—naturally unmixed
with any thing elso. Tho very first
night I slept for threo hours on end,
turned round, and slept again till morning. I have faithfully and regularly
continued tbe hot water, and have
never had ono 'bad night' since. Pain
gradually lessoned and went, the shattered nerves became calm and strong,
:uid Instead ot each night bolng ono
long misery spent in wearying for the
morning, thoy are all too short for the
sweet, refreshing sleep I now enjoy."--
Spectator. 	
TRICKS  OF CONVICTS.
A Dank Bobber Who Chewed Soap to Secure a I'arilon.
Henry Southgato was one of the men
engaged in robbing tbe Indiana National Bank some years ago in what was
known as the "orange-box robbery," the
box being used to stand upon while the
thief reached over the glass framework
upon the counter and lifted out several
thousand dollars in bunk notes—it was,
1 think, &0.000 or 835.000.
Southgato's friends pressed an application for pardon on tho ground that he
was dying of consumption. Governor
Hendricks believed the story und pardoned him. "In a very short time after
his release Southgato was as lively and
iieal thy an evil-door as thore waB in the
State," said a prison official. "lie had
simply boen playing the soap trick,"
"What's that?"
"Eating soai). The effect was
bleach his skin hy producing a dearth
of blood, or rather by changing tho
corpuscles, increasing the wbito and
diminishing tho red. Thero are no serious consequences following tbo use of
soap, and whon discontinued the man
rapidly gets well.
"Governor Hendricks, of course, was
much chagrined over   this deception,
and made an entry in this ofliee to the
ufleet thut it waB nevor safe to pardon
a roan merely bocause ho looked sick.
Men in prison will do other things to
excite sympathy and  mako it appear
thut they are dying of consumption.
"Now and then a follow will strike
' himself in the throat, or even cut hlm-
i self within the throat or  under  the
f tongue,   Then he will spit blood in the
| prosenoe of the physician, walk feebly,
talk In a whisper.   Sometimes they oat
Jlrt, which stops digestion, and this Is
, followed by a falling off in flesh.
"A short time ago a request was made
I for the pardon of a notorious criminal in
L the southern prison, on the ground that
[ho was dying. He was, upon that
| showing, placed in the hospital, from
I whioh he escaped, but was captured
I four days later.—Indianapolis Journal.
SPEED VS.  QUALITY.
|]Tevtr Consider Fast-Doing or More 1m.
portance Than Well-Dolng,
Many persons seem to think that
weed In work is ft higher accomplish-
bent than quality of work.   If speed is
ft the first importance, then it may be
>n apology for poor quality.   If quality
Is of the first importance, then it may
wean apology for want of speed.   One
lays: "I want to learn to write fast."
■Another   says:    "I write   this   very
Ihurrledlyj   please   excuse   erasures."
[Would suoh writers—or workers—rather
thought quick than acourate?  Do
[ they placo the writing above the writ*
f ton?   Even a shorthand writer ought
f not to write faster than he oan write
I well.    Speed follows quality; quality
1 never follows speed.   It is a good thing
to do good work fast.   But it Is a bad
thing to do fast work badly—and that ll
tho way it generally is done when the
fast-doing is hold above the well-doing.
Had work had better be done so slowly
that lt never gets done at all;  The only
way to attain to high speed is to work for
something  better than speed.—8, B.

Our beautiful oity is dormant no longer, its long silence ha.
suddenly ended, and. it now ranks foremost among the cities 01
the Pacific Coast; its wealth and population have increased at a
•einarkablo rate.
In 1888 the total value of taxable property in the city limits
was hardly »1,000,000, while to-day it aggregates nearly $5,000,000.
In 1887 tho population was 3,000, now it is over 8,000.
The City Council has undertaken immense public works, and
a large number of public and private buildings are under construction.
The city is now the Fresh Water .Terminus of the Canadian
Pacific, and by the first of July next it will be connected by the
New Westminster Southern with the great American transcontinental routes.
Noting all the foregoing facts New Westminster's future prosperity is assured, and no other city in the Province offers such
splendid inducements to-investors.

The long looked for Redistribution
Bill was brought down late thin afternoon. This inquitoUB and infamous
measure makes the following apportionment: Six new representatives are
added to the list, and divided as follows:
Nanaimo District (which includes the
city) gets an additional representative, giving it two, Alberni
a new constituency taken from Nanaimo
District, is allowed one representative;
and a new constituency created out of
the islands of the gulf gets a third. The
three additional representatives assigned to the Mainland are divided as follows : Vancouver City, two; Kootenay
District, one; Westminster City and
District gets—left, and the same may
be said in a measure of Vancouver.
The total result of the redistribution
is to increase the representation of the
Province from 27 to 33, of which the
Island has 16 and the Mainland 17.
There is not tho slightest doubt of the
measure carrying, at the present time,
but "this quarrel shall drink blood
another day."

The  New Fire Limits.
The new fire limit J>y-law was laid ho-
fore the Council last night. Its scope is
too narrow in one direction—Chinatown,
the eyesore of the city, being overlooked
entirely. No fire limit by-law will be
acceptable to the people that does not
take in Chinatown from Lytton Square
to the woolen mills, Including all that
portion lying between Front and Columbia streets. Chinatown is tho greatest drawback to the city in the eyes of
strangers, for it is the first glimpse of
Westminster they get, and once seen it
is never to be forgotten. Should these
rookeries happen to be destroyed by fire
it would be an everlasting shame to the
city to allow their like to oe built again.

v More Candidates.
Yesterday afternoon a deputation of
Vaucouverites, backed by a number of
prominent people of this city, waited
upon Mr. Benj. Douglas and invitedhim
to stand for election to the Dominion
House. Mr. Bouglas was inclined to
refuse the nomination, but finally acceded to the wishes of his friends and
consented to run. It is understood that
an active canvass will be inaugurated
without delay, and his friends are hopeful of making a good showing at the polls
when the eventful day arrives.
In another column will be found Mr,
W. B. Townsend's announcement of
candidature. He is in the field to stay,
and will add considerable interest to
what now seems assured—a hard and
closely contested fight. He intends
making a personal canvass of the district;
when he will lay his platform before the
electors for their approval.
Salmon rackets Meet and Protest Against
the New Fleherlei Regulations,
A meeting of all the principal canners
on the river was held last night to take
into consideration and protest against
the new fishing regulations in as far as
the weekly close time and the license
fees are concerned. The questions were
thoroughly discussed, and it was pointed
out that the present weekly cloBetime
throws the whole of Saturday's catch on
the canners' hands to pack on Sunday.
When the boats work until Saturday
evening the catch must either be thrown
away or packed. The cannery hands
are employed to work 6 days each week
and consequently the employees working on Sunday are paid overtime, while
on Monday they get paid although there
is no work for them to do owing to the
regulation which prohibits fishing between 6 p. m. on Saturdays and 6 a. m.
on Mondays. It was generally agreed
that the old close time, namely, from
noon on Saturdays until 0 p. m. Sundays
was the best law" for all concerned. The
fish caught up to Saturday noon could
all be disposed of the same evening, and
with the Sunday night's catch the canneries could begin running on Monday
morning. Under this system very little
work would bo neceBBary on Sunday,
while the present regulations makes it
a necessity that the establishments
should work throughout the Sabbath
day.
If the sockeye run lasted several
months the weekly close time would
make but little difference, but as it only
lasts a few weeks the cannerymen are
obliged to take advantage of every moment in order to secure a profitable
pack. The close time, accordingly, the
canners rightly think, might be changed
so as to benefit all parties concerned.
As regards the increase in the license
fees an empathies protest wbb entered,
not against the small fee charged fishermen and freezers, but against the discrimination so unfavorable to canners.
It was resolved by the meeting to memorialize the Government on these matters, and to invite the board of trade at
Victoria, Vancouver and Westminster to
back their protests. The canners feel
that they nave been placed In a very
nasty position by the new regulations,
and their business prospects and season's
profits have been greatly imperilled
thereby.   __________

Tha New Band.
The proposition to form n baud in
connection with the artillery has met
with general favor throughout the City,
and the scheme waB heartily endorsed
at the City Council meeting last night.
A committee of aldermen has beeu formed to look into the matter and to ascertain how much assistance the public
would be willing to give before the
Council finally determines the amount
it will suscribe. Ladner's Landing with
its population of 200 or 300 boasts of a
real good band, and Westminster with
a population of over 8,000 is behind its
little neighbor in this respect. This
cannot be the case much longer, for It is
rather undignified in a city with ,the
pretensions of WeBtminBter to borrow
music from other places to add to the
eclat of public demonstrations. If citizens are asked to subscribe they should
do so liberally, and with the promised
assistance of the Council, the Royal
City in loss than three months will have
a bund to be proud of,

The city pound after running wild all
over the city and doing much damage to
the peoples' minds by its wayward and
brain puzzling vagaries, has at last beeu
captured and safely corraled on Moody
Square. At least it will be safe there
for a week—next Monday it may take
wings aud locate at Sapperton, or stampede over to Brownsville and take possession of the new ferry landing or Mr.
Stein's coal mine. However, it is on
Moody Square now and the ratepayers
may be certain of it for a week iu one
place. The motion passed at the Council last night fixes the pound on the
northerly end of Moody Square. Cheap
buildings are to be erected, and a pound
keeper appointed to bring in the stray
animals. It would be well, therefore,
for owners of stray cattle to make immediate provision against the attack of
the pound keeper, for there is no telling
now the moment he may descend on the
peaceful herds that wander all over the
city and carry them into captivity. In
the words of the poet adapted to local
use: Beware the pound with costs and
fine, beware the keeper's wild lassoo;
beware the pen on Moodys line, keep
low the cows and pigs from view.
