Tuesday Evening* Jun. '.'I, IHKIi.
New WfH.liiiliir.fcr.
Until a year ngo, Westminstor
was the only oity on the mainland
of British Columbia, nnd by far the
most important trade center. Vancouvor is now v. city of great possibilities, nnd will doubtless take a
share of the provincial trade from
her sister on the Fraser. Because
one hears so much about the city of
Vanoouver; however, it by no means
.follows thnt it is the only place
on the mainland worlhy of special
notice. The city of Westminster is
on the Fraser River about sixteen
miles from its mouth. The site was
chosen by the late Col. Moody, of the
Eoyil Engineers, and tho choice is
certainly most complimentary to his
judgment and foresight. The bank
of the river at this point rises gradually to a hight of between two and
threo hundred feet, and the situation
of the city is both beautiful and
healthy. Mount Baker, in Wash
ington Territory, is easily seen, and
to the east are the coast ranges,
forming a fine background to somo
magnificent stretches of landscape.
The climate here is much the same
as that of Victoria and Vancouver,
with tho differenco that the cold
moist winds from the ocean are considerably tempered by passing ovor
sixteen miles of land before reaching
tho "royal city." The population
of the city is about 4,000. In it
are located the provincial penitentiary, the provincial asylum, a lurgu
contral prison and two hospitals.
Nearly all religious denominations
have churches and legular services.
The Roman Catholic church is the
largest and handsomest in the city.
The Church of England is a massive
stone building, and it possesses the
only chime of bells in tho province
—tho generous gift of Lady Bur-
dette Coutts. There are also commodious churches belonging to the
Presbyterians, Methodists, Baptists
and Reformed Episcopals. Thero is
a college under direction of tho Episcopal Ohurch, and the Roman Catholics hare a largo convent and a
college for boys, as well as a fino
hospital just complutcd tit a cost of
nearly §20,000. The public schools
aro graded and well conducted, and
there is also a high school for advanced pupils. The postoflico and
customs office is a substantial brick
block which cost 820,000. There
ore also a largo drill shed, court
house, land office, land registry olllce,
publio library, and other buildings
devoted to public purposes. An
opera house is now in course of
erection, however, capable of seating 1,000 persons, and the Odd Fellows are also erecting a largo publio
hall in their brick building. For
fifteen years, up to 1881, there was
very littlo advancement made in
Westminster, but for tho past six
years it has been going ahead steadily. Thero is more money being
spent in building this year, by far,
than has been spent during any former year of its history. Most of
the now business places are of bricks,
nnd many of them present n very
substantial and creditable appearance. At tho present time there
are no fewer than ten brick blocks
in course of erection, some of them
being vory largo and costly, ln
these there will be accommodation
for about twenty stores. One of
them cost 830,000, and is the largest single brick block in the province. In addition there have been
erected this season a large number
of residences, somo of which are very
handsome. The peoplo of Wostminster claim for their city many
important advantages which other
citios in tho provinco do not possess.
It is situated on tho Fraser, which
always has been, and is still, ono of
great avenues of commerce It is
also connected by a short branch
railway wilh the O. P. R. Having
both the rivor and railway, it is the
most accessible market for tho people, especially of the Fraser valley,
whicli is largely settled, and is acknowledged to be tho finest agricultural district in British Columbia,
It is expected that the northern extension of tho Amorican railway
system will connect with tho 0. P.
It at Westminster. The line from
•Seattlo tothe bound.iry has beon lair]
out, and tho Wostminster board of
trado holds a charter for the connect
ing tine between the boundary and
tho city.jTA steam ferry or bridge. '
acvoss thoTrasor will enable trallic
to reaoh the O. P. K. without breaking bulk. Tho river is navigable
for ships of moderate draught, the
lowest water at the entranco being
14 foot nt ox triune low tide, und
about 24 feet at high tide, lt is
navigable for storn-wheel steamers
for 100 miles above llio city. Tho
Canadian government is now en
gaged in improving tho river mouth,
and within a year or two it is expected tho entranco  will   bo  doop
enough to admit any vessel afloat.
Tho advantages of a fresh water
liarlror are too well-known to require
cxplunauton: Wharves built on
piles at Westminster will stand for
thirty years, whereas in salt water
tbey arc destroyed by the teredo in
ubout fivo years. At AVostminster
tlio rise and fall of the tide is only
about rix or seven feet, whicli means
a very great saving in the cost and
trouble of transhipping freight.
This city is aiso tho center of tho
fresh fish and-canning industry.
There are twelvo canning establishments on the river within fourteen
miles ofthe city, and two establish
ments for shipping- and freezing
frosh fish. ■ Th**5ity'**is*-sftrountled"
also by extensive tracts'of Valuable
timber, and it has three large sawmills and a large and very complete
factory for producing sash, doors, and
furniture. A woolen mill (trie only one
in the province), has been built and
put iu operation this season. Tho
city is lighted with gas, and will be
supplied with electric lights before
the end of the yenr. The central
office of the C. P. R. telegraph system is situated here, and connects
with the Postal Union, This ollice
gives employment to sixteen operators, and is by far the most important in the province. Steamers
mako daily trips from Westminster
up the river, and thero aro two
steamers plying regularly to Victoria, one to Kai.aimo, and several
to Vancouver. The 0. P. R. gives
it daily train service from the main
lines, and two trains a day between
Westminster and Vancouver. The
people of tho royal city claim that
there is no city in British Columbia
more favorably situated for trade
and expansion, and that tho future
to them is very full of promise.—

Hutisl in Wost Strand this afternoon,
in oompafiy with John Densoy, member for West Hayo, ha wns approached
by a Scotland Yard deteotive and taken
into custody. Ho was at once conveyed
to Scotland Yard, and will be taken to
Dublin to-night. At Scotland Yard lie
said be had no intention of finding ar*
rest, but, on tlio contrary, was intending to return to Ireland aud submit
to arrest, lirst concluding the business tbat was keeping him in London. This startling departure from
tho lints i*f tlie Coercion Act, which it
was supposed applied only to Ireland,
has created considerable excitement
generally, and much consternation
among tbo few Homo Rulers who havo
really left Ireland iu order to avoid arrest The only clause in iho original
draft of tbe Coercion Bill providing
for tho operation of tbo jurisdiction of
tbe Act in England, was killed in committee, aud it is asserted even by tho
Conservatives that tlio arrest of Cox in
London is an enormous stretch of the
powers authorized by law.

Provincial finances.
'the (Woitirtdescrilws the meeting held at Victoria last Saturday
sight, in the interest of Mr. Buck,
M one of the largest and most enthusiastic ever held in that city.
Ihe speakers were Mr. Duck, Hon.
Mr. Dannroir and Hon. Theo.
Davie. Whether the speeches wero
notable for breadth or not, they
were certainly of sufficient length,
for the Colonist's report occupies
nearly six columns; and the production of it next day reflects a grent
deal of credit upon that nowspaper.
The general conduct of tho government was pretty well discussed by
these three speakers, but the chief
point was the financial transactions
of the past and the amount of money
still at the credit of the province. It
has been stated over and over again
in the columns of opposition newspapers that the financial condition
of the province is about as bad as it
oould be without having reached actual bankruptcy. Indeed, some of
them have declared that about two
years more of such extravagance
would be sufficient to bankrupt the
country. This is a matter of very
great Importance, and it is well that
the ratepayers should interest themselves iii it, and inform themselves
as far as possible respecting the true
condition of affairs. Mr. Duck
pointed out that when tho present
government came into office in 1883
the outstanding debenture debt of
the province was $780,000; liabilities over assets, $328,000; net indebtedness after deducting sinking
fund, 1997,000. In 1886 the balance iheet was as follows: Outstanding debenture debt, $747,000; liabilities otbt assets, $187,000; net debt
after deducting sinking fund, $778,-
000; showing a reduction in the
debt of $219,000 during the threo
yean. Hon. Theo. Davie, in his
speech, dealt at considerable length
with the financial question, and,
being himself a cabinet minister, it
mult be presumed that his figures
were accurate. Oomparing the last
four fears of the Beaven administration with four years of the present administration he stated that
the Opposition charged the present
?jvernment with having expended
1,600,000 more than its predecessor. This, he said was just about
$600,000 Wide of tht mark. The
expenditure of the Beaven government from 1880 to 1883 (inclusive)
had been $1,855,229, whereas that
ef the present government from 1884
to 1887 had been $2,860,873. But
of the Bum expended by the late
government during that period, only
$432,838 went into public works,
whereas the present government hud
expended in public works, during
the same period, $1,090,958. The
necessary expenditure on account of
public schools had also increased
enormously in consequence of increasing population; and, of course,
the same cause produced a large increase in almost evory branch of the
public service. During the past
four years there has been $759,380
spent in roads, streets and bridges,
against $354,203 spent by the
Beaven government during a similar
period. Mr. Davie then referred to
the $1,000,000 loan which the government obtained power to negotiate
last year; and which, we have been
told, has been almost entirely squan
dered. When the loan bill was
being put through the house it was
stated that although only about
$500,000 was required for immediate
use, it was considered advisable to
make the loan $1,000,000, as better
terms could be obtained on the larger
sum. Moreover, the conditions of
the loan were that for the portion of
this loan not actually used the government would receive interest at
the same rate it was paying (41 per
sent.); to that it would be required
practically, to pay only for what it
needed. The hon, gentleman then
announced that he was in a position
to state, officially, that the amount
standing to the credit of the govornment at the present timo is "*547,-
9571 If any person desired to verify thete figures, he said, the manager of the Bank of British Columbia, where the government loan was
negotiated, would bear witness to
their correctness. This most effectually disposes of the opposition cry
that the proceeds of the million dollar loan have been spent and that
the province is on the verge of bankruptcy, and if the meeting on Saturday night has no other result, it will
hare accomplished a great deal by
affording an opportunity for an official declaration which sets at rest a
very important question.
Speaking of the litigation now
going on In this city over the late
municipal contest, the Vancouver
Herald remarks that "alively inter-
ett in municipal election! is one of
the beet evidenoes of progress."
Judged by that rule, it must be ob-
vioui that tho "evidences of pro-
great" are feiy plentiful in this city
jolt now. Indeed, the interest
manifteted haa been quite too lively
for t|n peace of mind of sevoral
eonnciHon, «nd when the costs como

A BATTLE WITH RATS,
t Ihe Story Tola by it Professional Bat.
Catcher In Philadelphia.
"I have Caught and killed plenty ol big
rata in my time, but the biggest ones
'/Fere captured along the wharves," said
' old Jack Gregory, or "English Jack," as
he is called by his acquaintances.
Gregory is a little old fellow, not moro
than live feet in height, and pressing
close upon his sixtieth year, lie lives
in Camden, on William street, below
lioydon. Wlit-n hu starts out on his rnt-
catirhing expeditions ho is always accompanied by two little Scotch terriers,
chained together. With a box of ferrets
thrown over his shoulder, "1-uglisb
Jack" presents nn odd picture.
"I hav. followed rat-mtcbing for a living for forty yours," said Gregory, "but
the most vicious chaps nro generally
found along the wharves, near where the
sewers empty into tlio river. They grow
up in the sewers, nnd eventually lind
tlieir way to the water's edge, mid there
settle permanently,   or else  ta'te up
auurtors in the  warehouse, near the
ocks.
I don't mind clearing a stable of rati.
That's fun for me. But when I run
called upon to elettii out a warehouse I
always know that it means tough work,
with probably the loss of two or three
ferrets. Nine times out of ten, a rat will
run away from a ferret, and wben they
emerge Irom their holes my dogs and I
just lay for them and kill them as soon
as llrey show themselves.   But I havo
I had many a valuable ferret -killed by
whan' rats. The rata being used to eating garbage, greedily devour everything
they come across, and grow to be tremendously large. I have seen lots that
were as big as cats; and ferocious fellows
they were, too. I remember once of a
pitched battle that took place between
three ol my ferrets and five ratavdown at
tbe sugar-boiiing house on Delaware
avenue, below South street. Each tat
was fully from fifteen to eighteen inches
In length, and must have weighed from
tour lo five pounds. Tbey had it hot
and heavy for n quarter of an hour. The
ferrets fairly chewed the rats to pieces
and came out victorious, though thev not
severely bitten themselves. Subsequently one of the ferrets died.
"That night I succeeded in killing
ninety rats. But I have seen larger rats
than those in my time.   A few years ago
;my dogs caught a rat down at tho
Washington avenue grain elevator which
was much bigger that a cat. It was two
feet long and weighed twelve pounds.
Ho must have been quite old and unusually fat. 1 guess he was tho king lat
about th. elevator. I was very anxious
to capture him alive, and it was hard
work to drive the dogs ot); so eager wero
they to put an end tb him. lio hail
fought them hard, notwithstanding his
age, and the dogs had their dander up.
• 1 managed to drag them awav, anrl then
I threw a net around him aud brought
him home to Camden.   I doctored him
. for three weeks, and hia wonnds healerl
pretty well. A saloon keeper near the
old navy yard made me an offer of ia)
and I sold the rat to bim to place on exhibition. He did not make much by tho
venture, aa the saloon keeper's wife was
.afraid of the big rat, and being anxious
to get rid oi the animal, poisoned it,
While the animal was en exhibition
there waa a sign displayed oa the iron
cage in which it wae lonflned, saying:
'Don't faol with tbe rat.' Thia injunction was rather unnecessary, for all the
■ t-ustomert willingly refrained from poking their fingers between tbe bars to stir
him up. Hia looks were tAbugh to
frighten folks."
Reconstructing a Shark.
When the famous phosphato beds
were discovered in South Carolina aome
years ago, vast numbers of bones and
teeth wer. unearthed, showing that in
early time* thl. locality had been peopled
by a great conomne of strange forms.
Among the most abundant curiosities, as
(he workmen termed them, were quantities of enormous teeth triangular in
shape, and serrated oa the cutting edge.
When shown to a naturalist they were
immediately recognized as shark teeth,
aud it became evident that at one time
the vicinity ot Charleston was the bed of
an ocean, and that gigantic sharks flourished then la great noiubers. Whenever tbe beda ofthe Asbloy and Cooper
rivers are dredged to-day numbers ot
these teeth are brought up, and one in
my collection ia nearly if not quite aa
large as my hand. Aa tho bones of the
shark are of cartilage, they have long
suite been destroyed, and only these
beautifully polished teeth—for they are
as fresh and glistening aa when tint discovered—are left to tell the story. It
would appear to be an Impossible task
to restore this giant from a single tooth.
But it is not ae dlfflenlt aa one might
imagine. From the slmpe of the tooth
ol the great Carcharodon we can form
some idea of ita appearance by comparing it with existing sharks, and from ita
sue we can determine how hsrg.it wm.
One day'I atteaipMd .-roughrestoration
to gain som. Mm el 'Ih. -dissensions of
the giant. 1 l»t ta my possession the
jaw of asheifc vrtilohlhadcMglrt lathe
Gulf of Maalce, wklcb would at the time
pass readily over my shoulders. The
shark waa about thirteen feet long, and
the teeth about an inch and two-eighths
wide, and art inch aad a halt in length.
There ware-eight rowa ot these, each row
being a little smaller than the last, until
they dwindled down toner.points. I
took as many of the fossil teeth aa I had,
and built np a jaw after the existing
model, using teeth whero I had them and
leaving space where I did not Gradually
the groat mouth grew on the floor until
1 found myself a small item in the area,
nnd when completed I found.that the
largest fossil shark oould have opened ita
mouth and allowed me to drive in a top-
buggy, and that it» length could not have
been less in proportion than one hundred
and twenty-live or thirty feet,—C. i',
Holder, in Wide Awake,
Spoiling Servants.
The test oi honesty has changed ot late.
,   People who would acorn to borrow an
umbrella without leave, and who scrupulously return a burrowed book have no
■ heBitatioa whatever in enticing the eer-
vanta of their nearest neighbor or dearest friend away whenever their Interest
prompt* the sedate-, Strangers, there'
lore, are dearly entitled to no consideration in this respect, and it is no uncommon thing for a tidy looking nurse girl to
be stopped on the atreet and interrogated
by some wouun in vouch of .nurse aa
to wbether she likes her plate or would
.  be willing to leave it.
Still more frequently is the query with
regard to other servants, as, for example,
when the other day a nurse with nsr
,, charges waa accosted  by a lady who
P SBked her if she knew of a good cook.
"I don't know but ene—mv mother,"
replied the girl, "and abets in service."
"What wages rlocredegttV
The girl told her.
"Ah, whom does she live with 1"
The name was given and leoogniied
as that of a gentleman who lum some
reputation as a ton tittpR.
"Very well, tell h« tt wme to Me«nd
■ I'll glv.hu a dollar a week arm., I
must have a good coofc."
How Hard Money is Matte.
"Wo don't make monoy here," said tlie
courteous Chief Clerk of the Assay
Office; "that is, we don't convert bullion
inlo coin. We receive gold nnd silver
from depositors, melt end assay tlie linl-
.ion, form it into oars and ship the bar-
to the Philadelphia Mint, and in th,
course of a few days that institution
sends ua back tho coin. Government
furnishes us with a bullion fund amount
Imr to over thirty-live million dollars
out of whir-h we pay the depositor just
es soon as the fineness of his metal is
determined by assay, the weight ascertained and the vnlno calculated. In
fact, all our deposits, except in cases of
re-melt and re-assay, are made within
two days.
"Now," Baid ho, picking up a bright
now rloiihie eogle, "you know how easy
it Is to spend that coin, but unless yon
are familiar with tlie work you can form
no irlen of tire time and labor it took lo
irirrke it-. I'Vint tho lime tlie bullion
from whicli this rloulrl" eagle wns n n le
reached the mint, until it wns i-oiiv.-ite '
into coin, it hnd passed through no less
tlinn tun distinct pro -esses, such as nn-lt-
injr, alloying, forming the metal into
ingots, rolling the ingots into strips tlie
thickness of n coin, cutting from the
strnrs the 'pianchcts' or 'blanks,' annealing, milling and adjusting the
'blanks' and coining or stamping tiio
pieces, besido snn-lry minor operations
.ncidental to milling. Now, examine
that coin closely under tiro glass, and see
how well tho work is executed. The
Komans excelled in the nrt of engraving
and many of the coins wero masterpieces.
But we cannot nfiord to throw up our
central designs in such hold relief as the
Komans did, for in the hurry an 1 hustle
of onr day and the rapid handling anrl
piling of coins, we would soon wear the
face off of the goddess and wings oil* the
enr.de. So, while our designs are in Void
relief, yet -we make them low and protect
them a* much as possible from abrasion
and wear by -throwing up' tbo edge of
tho blank, technically called 'milling.'
"The manufacture of dies, or the art of
'die sinking,' has reached great perfection nt the Philadelphia Mint, and all
tho coinage dies or other mints are made
at that institution. Tho artist flrst makes
the design, nntl then a model of it in wax
three or four limes larger than tho desired coin. From this moilel au electrotype is taken, and then tire design is
transferred by means of a Hill engr.ivitig
machine, which works on the principle
of a pantograph, to a block of steel the
size of the corn, lint ns only the principal design, such ns the hend, eagle, or
sliielrl, can be thus transferred, Ihe artist
fills in Irv hand the stars, dnte, and all
sin rounding details. Then, after removing the groOnrl on tlie face of the block,
lie strikes from the block au impression
into and upon a second block. This
second block is hardened and an impression h transferred to a third siiuilnr
block, whicli we call the 'parent die' or
'master hub' and froru which the regular
coinage dies nre made. Tho impression
on the 'master hub' is in relief, or convex, while thai on the 'working' or coinage die is 'intaglio,' or concave.
"But let us seo what thoy aro doing in
here," said tho Chief Clerk, os he stepped into llie 'Weigh Room,' where truck
loads of silver were being weight. "That
scale you sec there is a model of accuracy, and will weigli from ten thousand
ounces down lo one-hundredth part of
an ounce. This small balance weighs
from twenty ounces down tothe one-
five-thousandth piirl of n rrr.rin. In fru-t
wo must have accuracy in this work,
not only to cheek our op. rations, bul to
maintain llie reputation uf this oiilc -,
wii.ch is such that our stamp of weight
an I fineness passes current iu nil the
commercial centers of the world."
For Coin Collectors.
A coin is said to he "proof wben it is,
specially struck by hand press, instead
af by steam press, from a polished plan-
chet, and a "proof set" is a complete set
of proofs of current coins. A "pattern
niece" Is an early specimen ot proof
irom a newly adopted coinage dio or
dies. An impression in soft metal to
test an experimental die is called a "trial
piece." When a piece is struck from
regular dies on experimental dies with
experiment legends, devices or designs,
it is denominated an "experimental
piece." Trial and experimental pieces,
struck for mint purposes only, will not
be issued, circulated or sold. Pieces
popularly known as lestrikes, false metal
pieces and metallic replicas, or copies,
are prohibited by the revised statutes,
l'rool aud pattern pieces are sold by the
euperiiitenrlent of the mint. The superintendent will furnish without charge, a
pattern piece to any incorporated numismatic society in tho United States, ln
such cases, it the pattern be in gold or
silver tho value of the metal will bo required.
Booksellers ot Paris*
Tn Paris, they will not sell you a book
lor five hundred francs and let it go
afterward at your own auction sale for a
hundred dollars. If they have sold you
a "perichblow vase" sort of a book, their
dignity us well as their interest will make
them redeem it at the price thoy have
made you pay, or not much less. It is
the ambition of every bookseller not to
become wealthy in ten or twenty years,
but to becomo a bibliophile; perhaps because in that realm of equality everybody's desire Ib to bo of tlio privileged
fow, perhaps becauso honors nro prized
more than riches there. It is silly to run
mad after a bit of red rlbbou for tho
.apel of one's coat, but It is uot for tbo
Bibliophile who runs mad after book-
kiirling. to say so. Moreover, the man
who would rather have a red ribbon
than a fortuno, if a bookseller, is tho mu
for a bibliophile. Valuable books aro
not to be sold liko old boots; then* most
be some show of feeling about it,

A plan recently Introduced Into Belgium for preserving wood from decay
produced by the atmosphere, water, etc.,
is to fill the pores with a liquid guttapercha, which is said to effectually pro-
ierve it from moisture and the action of
the sun. The process employed consists
in exhausting the air from the pores of
the wood, and filling with guttapercha
solution. In pouring the solution into
tbe pores, the solid guttapercha la liquefied hy mixing with paraffins in proportion of about two-thirds of guttapercha
to one-third of paralline; the mixture is
then submitted to the action of heat and
the guttapercha becomes sufficiently
liquid to tie easily introduced into the
frorcs of the wood. Tho guttapercha
iqucfied by thir process hardens in l!,e
pores of the wood us soon ns it becomes
cold.  .

"It Swell My Life"
b a common expression, often heard
(rem those who have realized, by personal use, tbe curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. — I cannot say enough
In praise ot Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral, bo-
lining as I do that, but tor Its use, I
should long since have died from lung
troubles,- E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six months ago I hod a severe
Hemorrhage of tho Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of sleep and rest. I hod used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised mo to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that it
helped me at once. By continued use
this medioine cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my life. —Mrs. E.
Coburn, 18 Second st., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
tor over a year, and sincerely bolieve I
should have been in my grave, had it
not been for this medicine. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of tho lungs,
tor which I had almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A, McMullou,
Windsor, Province ot Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Peotoral saved my life.
Two veers ago I took a very severe Cold
which settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took tho remedies thoy
prescribed, but failed to obtain reliof
until I began using Ayer's Cherry Poc-
toral. Two bottles of this medicine
completelvrestored my health.—Lizzie

Mr. Ed. Port has put up about 700
tons of splendid ice in D. W. Port &

of the ice put up yesterday measured

ANOTHER MINE HORROR.
An Explosion Occurs In Ihe Wellington
■Wlnc-WO Men Imprisoned.
Si-ccia! (o ths Columbian.
Nanaimo, Jan. 24.-—An explosion in
No. 5 Shaft of the Wellington mine
occurred a few minutes before 0 o'olock
this morning. Tlio lioiating near is
damaged to ;i considerable ex tout.
Eleven men have boon got out. All
tho rest are iu tlio mino but nro believed to bo Bufo and no ono killed.
Two hundred men wore in tbo mine at
the timeof the explosion.
1 p. in.—At one o'clock 'M white
mott and .'ti Chinese bad boon safely
hauled up, tho hoisting shaft gear now
being in working order, They aro
being brought up quickly, and as there
is no firo iu tho mine, it in folt sure
that all are safe, perhaps with tho exception of n few in the immediate
vicinity of where tho oxploaiou occurred.
Kicked by a Horse,
This morning a young man named
Bertie Catee, one of Mr, Sully's np-
prentices, was severely kicked by a
vicious horse, Ho was trying lo lift
tho horse's foot, for tho purposo of
shoeing it, when tlio animal suddenly
kicked forward, striking him on tho
mouth with such force ns to knock out
two front teeth and inflict a cut two
inches long on the lower lip. The
wound wus a very ugly one, being cut
through to the jaw. Dr. Hall wns
called nnd sewed up tho cut, which required three stitches, and Cate3 is doing
aB well as could bo expected.
Very Artistic Torti-ntf--..
Among the remarkable illustrations
in tho special number of tho San Fran-
chco Journal of Commerce is one supposed to represent Mayor Dickinson.
We cannot congratulate the artist on
his achievement. No one would have
suspected tho identity of tho picture if
it hnd not been labelled. Tho only
feature at nil recognizable is tho top
of tho head, which is like Siberia--a
groat white bear place. Thero 13 also
a group representing tho members of
the provincial government, in which
the provincial secretary appears with
the expression of a mnn who has just
finished rending un editorial in the
Mainland Guardian.
Another 'Man ot Our Cirowtli.
The settlors nt and about the head
of Serpentine river are sorely in need
of a post-office, or a passible road to
the post-office nearest that settlement.
The nearest oflice nt present is Surrey
Centre, four miles from tho river, but
thero being no communication by road
between the two points, no use can be
made of it. All mail mutter for tho
Serpentine river settlement is addressed to Westminster, and tbo farmers
are obliged tu drive a distance of ten
milos to get it. The lnnd in the vicinity of tho river is nearly ull takon up
and new settlers aro moving in every
month. At present there are about
20 settlers in the neighborhood and
they feel the wnnt of a mail service
very keonly.
A Bin Boom glide.
On Sunday morning n snow slide
occured between Spujsum nnd Yule,
which has interrupted traffic both oast
nnd west. A gigantic slide rolled
down the mountain side and buried
the track for several hundred feet, to
a depth of from 15 to 25 feet deep.
Word of the casualty wan telegraphed
to Vancouver and Mr. Downie -with u
large force of men left immediately by
special train nnd have been at work
every since trying to set the truck
clear. This morning nn additional
force of men wns telegraphed for and
it.is expected the line will bo clear by
to-morrow night. Tlio incoming (ruins
have been held nt Nortli Bend, where
there is lots of good accomodation
nnd plenty of food. Threo tnuns are
there at presont nnd the little village
ought to bo rather lively.
Hmuliij Train*,.
We nut iced tlio other day that a deputation of Vancouver clergymen had
waited on Mr. Abbott, general superintendent uf the C. P. 1*!., Paoific division, to discuss tlio feasibility of reducing the amount of Sunday work
done in connection with the railway.
Among nther things suggested was tho
discontinuance of the locnl train between Westminster and Vanoouver on
Sundny. From nil ollieinl notice in
our ndvortsing columns to-dny it will
bo seen that tbe deputation has uot
been without result. Tho morning
nnd evening trams arc to be withdrawn on Sunday and only such trains
will hu run aa are necessary to connect with thiough trains ut tho junction. If it ootild be arranged that tbo
Atlantic expiess leaving here on Sunday could leuvu on Monday instead,
thoso who desire to seo the proper observance of tho Sabbittli would bo still
more gratified.
Well Done IMinsmnlr!
The Steamer Dunsmuir arrived from
Vancouver this morning ut 11 o'clock,
being tho first steamer to reach this
port in throo weeks. Cnpt. Rogers
reports tho rivor clear except nt the
mouth, where there is a quantity of
broken ice, hut imt sufficient to im*
pode navigation in tho least. Tho
stenmerwns unablo to touch ut Lid-
nerd owing to thu iio thnt hns formed
round tho wharf. Duoys 7, 8, 9 & 10
havo drifted from their original moorings, nnd the red buoy nt tho nnnd-
hends has disappeared entirely. It is
absolutely neaessary that these bouys
ho replaced without loss of timo as
navigation cannot bo resumed with
sufoty until they nro iu position again.
Capt. Rogers will innke the rogular
trips from this dnto forward, providing tho river doos not freeze again.
The Dunsmuir brought n bid of coal
for Harry Elliott, nnd a quantity of
general freight.

Four faces decorated tho prisoners'

Agricultural Society M Ladners,
Correspond onco of tho Columbian.
Ladsbks, Jan 23.—A largely attended meeting of the farmers of Delia was
held at the Town Hall last Saturday
for the purpose of organizing an agricultural sock'ty. Mr. W. H. Ladner, M. P. P., was called to the chair,
and Mr, A, Gilchrist acted as secretary.
After n lumber of gentlemen had
spoken of tho advantage such an association would bu to the farmers, it
wns moved by Mr. J no. Kirkland,
s-cotidod by Mr. Rate, and resolved,
"that we now organizo an agricultural
society to bo known as tho
Delta Agricultural Society.

Fokt Simpson, Jan. 4.— Tho Xmas
nnd Now Year's feasting, etc., have
been going on among tho peoplo horo
for three weeks, and u largo stone, or
monument, put up inJionor of Chief
Paul, caused a good deal of excitement, a heathen tribe having been invited to take part in tho ceremonies.
Nearly 200 children were together one
day nt 'he Christmas tree in tho school
house; and tbe strangers were delighted with the magic lantern one night,
and the villager.-* the night ufter. Altogether, it wns a time of grent enjoyment. But this peaceful community
was disturbod on Now Year's eve by
ahout eight or nine half-breeds and
Indians on a big drunk in one of the
H. IV Co's. gue.it houses; and, of
course, out from there they must como
through the village to disturb the
peace nud quivt of tho place. Why is
it thnt the government will continue
to license houses so near nu Indian
country of KOtt peoplo, aud whore there
aro scarcely any whites at all? I am
glad to say that two of the bad people
have been brought to juaticoand lined;
aud it came nut that thn liquor oaino

LbNDoK, Jan. 23.—It is beyond
doubt that a powerful war party in
Russia has several times in tho last
two months nearly succeeded in com
mitting tho Czar to ovcrt.aots of hostility. The latter has been persuaded
that Prince Bismarck wishes for war
and is endeavoring to precipitate it,
and the anti-German manifestations in
Lithuania and other provinces nre an
indication that the Russian government
ia earnest in its desire to banish the
language and other remainders of the
detested Teuton from Russia soil. As
n natural consequenco mnny theoretical warriors have favored .the world
with their views ai tu the campaign
which they regard as inevitable between Germany, Austria and Italy on
ouo hand, and Russia and Franco on
tho othor. Occasionally* a person
whoso opinion is really worth being
chronicled is heard from. A distinguished Russian general, ono of the
most distinguished, hus kindly enlightened the public through a correspondent of the Paris Soleil with precise details concerning tho coming
struggle. He takes it for granted that
Bismarck wishes for war fur several
reasons. The alliance with Italy may
not last long. In a cnuplo of yean a
change of ministry at Rome mny withdraw her support, and he wishes to
make use of Italian troops while ho
can command their aid, nor can Austria bo depended on. The Hungarians
particularly detest Bismarck and distrust Germany, and several speeches in
the Diet have lately shown the animus
of the inhabitants of that powerful
portion of the Austrian empire The
articles in the treaty of the Triple Alliance engages each of tho contracting
powers to mobilize a portion of its
forces yearly. The Austrian government having failed tu keep its agreement in this respect, pressure wus
brought upon it from Berlin, and as a
further incentive alarming articles in
German and Austrian journals as to
the threatening Russian movements
un tho Galiciuii frontier appeared, setting all Europe in a turmoil. The conflict will be, continues tho general, in
this wise. In sprint; Italy will be
summoned to mobilize an nrmy corps
on the northern frontior. France will
respond by an analogous military
meosu-.'e. Germany will order France
to disperse her troops, and then war
will begin. Sixteen of the eighteen of
Germany's army corps will enter
Franco from Lorraine, while n cloud
of Italians will debouch by St. Goth-
ard upon (lie basin of tho Rhine, At
tho end of tho first week France will
be tho victor upon tho Rhine or
thrown back into thu middle of Champagne. Sho can certainly hold out
fur a month, and at the end of that
time the Russian nrmies will be threatening Berlin or Vienna. This in the
programme furnished by a Russian
war expert who concludes by saying
that Russia isa powerful machine, and
as Buch slow to be put in motion, but
once started she will crush every obstacle in her path.
