NOTES IHD COMMENTS,
It may appear strange, says an
exchange, in a country of sixty millions of inhabitants, to hear of the
discovery of a waterfall in Colorado
said to rival in beauty the Falls of
Niagara, There are, howover, still
vast tracts of land in the United
States unexplored. Many of the
States west of tbe Misaissippi have
only been properly surveyed in the
immediate neighbourhood of railways and a few publio highways.
Le Canada adopts a very significant tone in advocating the claim
made for a French-Canadian Minister in the Ontario Cabinet. It
says: "We would have our part of
the*"|vil honours, not for self-lore,
buf for tlio conservation of our national dignity. We would have our
part in the patronage ud ndminis
trative employments, not for ambition, cupidity, or spirit of peculation,
but because such should be divided
in a fixed proportion. In refuting
you violate our rights. Now, who
violates the rights of others must
expect reprisals. And do not forget we are 150,000."
A discussion in New Brunswick
of the provincial law relating to
marriage hosdisquieted some heads
of families in that province. The
law requires that the clergyman per-
forming the marriage ceremony have
the following qualifications; "First,
he must be a British subject; second,
he must be a minister or a teaoher
duly ordained; third, hs must have
charge of a congregation*^ their
preacher, or be connected therewith."
This law prevents ministers who are
not British subjects, or who are not
in actual charge of a congregation,
from solemnising matrimony, and it
is claimed that mamagessolemnized
by suoh clergymen—and there have
been many—are illegal, The Ontario law is not so narrow. Every
clergyman resident in Ontario and
properly ordained by his Ohurch
may legally solemnize marriage here.
The alleged immunity of the cigar-
makers of Florida from the attacks
of yellow fever has been, in a measure
confirmed by the results of some
scientific experiments niide by Df.'
Venienzo Tassinari, of the Hygienic
Institute of the University of Pisa.
He exposed a number of fever microbes to the fumes of tobacco in a
special apparatus constructed for
the purpose, and found that in every
instance, there wu marked delay in
the development of colonies as compared with that of organitms dealt
with similarly, but without exposure
to tobacco smoke. In a few cases
the development was entirely prevented. Dr. Tassinari proposes to
extend his researches more fully on
a future occasion, The votaries of
the weed will, of course.find in these
experiments a plea for its use; but
it may be suggested that tobacco, if
potent to arrest the development of
microbe colonies, may also be sufficiently noxious to arrest the development of the human individual.
The dispute of the English authorities in India with Thibet, observes
an eastern paper, has brought into
greater prominence the curious marriage customs of that country. For
time immemorial polyandry has been
an established institution in Thibet,
polyandry being that form of polygamy where a wife has moro than
one husband. The peculiar feature
of this custom in Thibet is that the
wife generally marries several brothers, thus insuring peace and concord in the household, for the Thibetans are of an unimpassioned temperament and subornate all other
interests to those of the family.
The end which the system serves is
that it restricts population in regions
where emigration is difficult and
means of subsistence icarce. A
Moravian missionary once defended
the praotice as applied to Thibet on
the ground that it did not appear to
have an unfavorable effect upon the
manners of the people. As for the
surplus women they take Hamlet's
unceremonious advice to Ophelia
and get to a nunnery.
An exchange says: On an island within the tropics thero was a
grove of cocoa palms. A monkey
climbed one of these trees, securing
a tempting nut, and wss contemplating a luxurious meal, as at tho
foot of the palm it bad opened the
hard shell and exposed the fragrant
contents. But other monkeys beheld, were smitten with oovetout-
ness, and claimed an equal share in
the hard-earned prize. With a gesture caught from mankind th.
threatened proprietor pointed to the
tree above them, where nuts hung
temptingly for any monkey who
would take tho trouble to secure
them. But the trees were high, the
nuts far from them, only to be
reached by labor, and th. nut that
had been laboriously obtained and
opened by their more active and industrious fellow was temptingly
near, So they did not climb or
toil; they limply formed themselves
into an anti-poverty society, and
seised the coveted nut The civilization was rudimentary and their
morality undeveloped.

SUICIDE IN JAIL,

he died to-day. It was then discovered
that at the samo time he hacked his
throat, he stabbed himself twenty-two
times directly over the heart, the knife
entering his breast the full length of the
blade.   Cause, delirium tremens.
THE UMBRIA COLLISION.
New Yobk, Nor. 12.—An hour be*
fore the collision the Umbria had narrowly escaped another collision. The
French line steamer LaNormandie,
whioh waa also bound out, was running
about parallel with the Umbria, and
the two steamers could hear one another's whistle at intervals. Suddenly
the La Normandie's whistle sounded
nearer, and in a few seconds tbe vessel
came in light, just before the Umbria's
bow. There were cries of alarm, but
the pilots on both steamers gave the
proper turn to their wheels, and the
vessels swung away and in a moment
were out of sight of one another again.
Ex-Mayor Thatcher of Albany, says
that the shock when the Umbria struck
the Iqeria did not seem at all severe in
face of the terrible damage done to the
latter. The discipline on the Umbria
wns perfect. The officers and men
seomed to know exactly what to do,
and their coolness insured confidence
among the passengers. The crew of
the Iberia seemed terribly afraid that
they would be abandoned. Their
frantic cries were plainly heard on the
Umbria, The members of the Iberia's
crew who have been interviewed declare that the steamer's whistle was
regularly blown and that the Umbria
was running at a high speed. William
E. Geddes, the London agent of the
Yogeler Company of Baltimore, who is
au experienced traveller, uyi that the
Umbria was running fully 17 knots an
hour, and he had felt surprised that
she should be run at such a speed. He
says tbe shock of the collision was
hardly felt on board the Umbria. Wm.
Brown, another passenger, corroborates Mr. Geddes and says some of
the passengers knew nothing of the
collision until some time afterwards.
Dyspepsia and Indigestion is caused by
the want of action in the biliary ducts,
loss of vitality in the stomach to secret
tho gastric juices, without which digestion cannot go on; also being the principal cause of headache. Parmelee's Vegetable Pills taken before going to bed,
for a while, never fail to give relief and
effect a cnre. Mr. W. F, Asbdown, Ash-
down, Ont, writes: "Parmelee's Pills are
taking the lead against ten othor makes
which I have in stock."

Wedaudv Breillat, Nov. 14, 1888.
We are glad to observo that our
efforts to stir the citizens up to taking actiou well beforehand in the
matter of selecting next year's
mayor and aldermen have not beon
altogether lost Steps have already
been taken, as our renders were informed yesterday, to bring forward
a suitable man for mayor. It is
understood that Mr. Dickinson declines to stand for this office for tlio
ensuing year, and, us already stated,
a numerously signed requisition has
been presented to Mr. John Hendry,
president of tbe R. 0. P. Mills Oa
Without disparaging our present
mayor, or anyone else, we cannot
think of anyone at present who
would make so able, energetic, and
acceptable a mayor as Mr. Hendry.
We hope the ratepayers will follow
up their hand and bring out tbe
best men obtainable for aldermen.
Next year will be an important and
eventful one for the royal city, and
we shall need our very best and
most business-like men at the helm.
Tho great railway meeting is
over, and the royal city is on top
again. Foes without and foes without have not been able  to prevail
against the "d d   little burgh"
or to cause her citizens to stultify
themselves and betray  their own
best interests.     It  was  doubtless
the intention of the few instigators
of the meetnig last night to obtain
a public expression cursing the railway scheme, the city council, and
all in any way connected with bringing the whole matter to its present
satisfactory status,    Tho emphatic
way in which the desired malediction was turned into a hearty and
practically unanimous   blessing by
the large, intelligent, and  enthusiastic body of citizens present shows
plainly that the peoplo of tho royal
city.havo not sot their  hearts and
hands to this matter of tho Southern
Railway in any  such feckless and
stupid spirit as to be turned aside
by a small coterie of either designing or muddled malcontents—a combination, probably, of both.   Some
of the discontented ones have probably been honest in their opposition,
but we believe they will   come  to
acknowledge very soon  that their
misguided efforts to embarrass the
Southern  Railway  and   the   city
council were happily frustrated in
the true interests of the  city.    It
seoms   almost    incomprehensible,
under all the circumstances, and at
this stage of tho proceedings, that a
number of our oitizens,  most «f
whom voted for the railway by-laws
a few monthi  ago,  and  most of
whom, according to their own words,
are heartily in favor of the Southern
Railway,   ahould   hesitate   about
placing the debentures  in trust in
the hands of a committee of trustees
containing some of our most responsible and trustworthy citizens, who
at the same time  are well known
and successful business  men and
have large interests at stake in the
city.   An examination of the names
of those who have consented to act
as the city's trustees  in  this important matter, and who,  by  resolution of the city counoil on  Mon-
day, Nov. 5, were duly appointed
and constituted trustees for the purpose hereinbefore mentioned, should
satisfy the most captious and  suspicious that the city's  interests in
the premises are amply safe-guarded.
Following are the names, published
over a week ago, of the oitizens who
form tho railway debentures trust:
Mayor Dickinson,   president; Mr.
Ju.   Cunningham,   vice-president;
and Messrs. J. Hendry, A. Ewen,
B. Douglas, 11. Elliott, D, S. Curtis,
A. M. Herring und T. Ovens.   The
thing could not be more secure, it is
fair to presume, if every individual
ratepsper were on the trust and lay
awake six nights out of seven under
a sens, of  the responsibility involved.   This matter of the Westminster Southern Railway  is, and
always has been,  pre-eminently, a
citizon's affair, and it augurs well,
both for the success of th. railway
itself, and for future  oity enterprises, that the oitizens of the royal
oity, almost as one man, have once
mora registered their emphatic determination to carry  the  scheme
through in spite of all obstacles.
The resolution  passed  last  night,
practically unanimously, commending the action of the city  eounoil
with respect to railway  matters,
dots honor to tbe city as well ai to
the council, and proves that the
ratepayers are satisfied that their
wishes   have   been   subatantially
oarried out, and that they  are not
ungrateful to those who  have endeavor^ interpret their desires
and serve tbe bast interests of the
city.   Eliowherewill.be found  in
extended and very interesting report of the publio meeting Inst
night.
Allhave *iot bowell- the knee to
tho Bui of party among oqr.sputhern
neighbors, althoiigh the gront bulk
of the indications during the presidential campaign just closed would
lead an observer to supposo that the
great political Molech had an all but
universal sway.   It  is  refreshing
to find a newspaper, while heartily
supporting one of the great parties
kicking over the traces and repudiating one  of   that  party's  candidates, on the ground of moral and
general unfitness, and at the same
time urging upon tho  electors  tho
duty of returning his opponent, bo-
cause he was a worthy   man and
well fitted for  tho  position.   The
paper in question  is  the  Tacoma
Ledger, Republican in politics, and
the position sought by the opposing
candidates was that of  prosecuting
attorney for a Washington Territory
county,    which,   like   judgeships,
iStov,  is  an  elective oflice among
our neighbors.   Speaking of the Republican (its own party) candidate,
the Ledger says:   "The election   of
Fremont   Campbell   would   be    a
calamity to the Republican party,
as he is a disgrace to the respectable
men who are his associates on the
ticket.   Neither the party nor the
county can afford to  have  Campbell elected to the office of  prosecuting attorney in face of  his  disgraceful record, as presented in the
Ledger.   *   *   *   In the light of
all that has been revealed the Ledger cannot conscientiously, and will
not vote for such a man.    It   will
blot his name from the ticket, and
will adviso all honest  men   to   do
likewise.    In its stead will be written the name of Joseph S. Bronston
(the Democratic candidate), a young
man who has  been closely  scrutinized, and   whose record has been
thoroughly  examined.   Upon Mr.
Bronston's escutcheon not one spot
has been found.   He  comes  of a
good family, is thoroughly honest, is
well educated for his profession, and
tries to do what is right.     Above
all, ho is the  enomy  of  criminals
and cannot   be  bought.   *   *
Every man should be   loyal  to his
party, and vote for every  man on
his party's ticket so long as he can
do so without violating the dictates
of his conscience.    But let it be remembered that loyalty to conscience,
truth, virtue, justice and the best
impulses of the human heart is far
greater than   the loyalty  to  any
party,   Tho day has gone by when
political bosses can whip the voters
into line and make them  vote  for
unworthy men, simply because they
happen to slip pust   the  sentinels
and get on the ticket  in  the  confusion of a convention.   That  custom prevailed in the days of  political slavery,    but  has long since
passed into oblivion.    The people
have grown too intelligent to tolerate it,  in   this  enlightened age."
Referring to a scheme between the
wire-pullers and tricksters of both
parties, by which each party should
betray one of  its own candidates
into the bands of the other for base
political purposes, tho Ledger says:
"Democrats,   vote    your straight
ticket.     Republicans,   vote your
straight ticket,  substituting Bronston, the honest and able Democrat,
for Campbell, the friend of Morgan,
(a   noted   Tacoma    gambler and
scoundrel).   Thus  knock  out the
professional   politicians,   schemers
and rascals on   both  sides."    The
future of the great republic would
be brighter if there were  more of
such expressions in the American
press.   	
PThe Thin Cannot Gain in Weight
if they are troubled with dyspepsia, because the food ia not converted into tho
due proportion of nourishing blood which
alone can furnish the elements of flesh.
But thero is no reason, when this wearing, attenuating disease is conquered by

Constipation
Is a universal and most troublesome dl*
order. It causes Headacho, Mental Depression, impairs tlio Bight nnd Hearing,
destroys the Appetite, and, when long
continued, causes Enlargement ot the
Liver, Inflammation ol the Bowels, snd
Piles. Constipation is speedily cured
by Ayer's Fills.
For a number ot months I was
troubled with Cofltivenesa, in consequence of which I suffered from Loss ot
Appetite. Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. My eyes also troubled ino. I was
compelled to wear a shade over thorn,
and, at times, was uuable to bear ex*
posuro to tho light.  I was entirely

hesitation in pronouncing this medicine
to be the best cathartic ever made. *****

I suffered from Constipation, and, con-*
sequently, from Headache, Indigestion,
and Files, for years. Ayer's Fills, whioh
I took at the suggestion of a friend, have
given me effectual relief. I commenced
taking this remedy two months ago, and
am now free from Constipation, the removal of which has caused my other
troubles to disappear, and greatly improved my general health.—W. Keoler,

To our satellite, gravitating around us
at . dlatanco of 240,000 mllet, the earth

THE INDIANS AND SNAKES.
Very Cm-loot Theories Mid Traditions of
the Bed Ho. of tbe Northweit,
A correspondent of the St, Paul Pioneer
Press, writing from Mandeau, Dak., says,
the Indian who doe. not hate a anake is a
rarity.
Thla part of the country, before It wat
pretty well settled with Caucasians, was
liberally furnished with reptiles, and today, duriug the summer time, they aro to
be mot with ln sufficient abundance,
though It la seldom that the poisonous
varieties trouble oue with their presence.
The Indiana hnvo various theories as to
the reason for tbo existence of the snakes
that offend their sight. The theories all
tend-in one direction, howover; that they
are sent as a punishment to those who
have offended the Great Spirit.
Up the Missouri River, a distance of
forty miles, is a warm spring, baok in the
bluffs, which flows all the year, winter
and summer. Tbe water la agreeable to
drink, in fact, It is excellent, and Is a
great ileal softer than that which nwuits
the thirsty traveler in that region.
Tho fact that it Is warm serves na an
attraction to reptiles, who, in the fall of
tho year hie thomselves thither to spend
tho winter.
Of oourso tho chance traveler cannot
tee them when tho thermometer Is below
sero, curled up ln their hibernating condition, but as they oan be aeen iu tbo full
or spring, going ln behind the waters and
coming out therefrom, there it no doubt
In tho minds ot white or red men ts to
their business there.
The Indium Mill Ittho "mak. houte,"
ud they all avoid It at though It waa the
entrance to the infernal regions. 'They
regard tbo water aa being tainted, nnd It
matters not how thlnty they moy be they:
never taste It. They look uppntho.prlng
at a storehouse belonging to the Great
Spirit, in which he keeps the reptiles time
are grown for the purpose of terrifying
ud chastening hia erring children.
An nged Indian was laying down to me
with considerable eloquence a abort time
ago tho tbeoriet which he and his tribe
believed as to the snakes, and 1 asked hlm
wby, 1 f ho regarded the reptile ai being a
dispensation from tho Great Spirit; they
were not around the whole year In this
locality attending to buiineu.
"Does not the red man need trials and
chostenlngs as much ln the winter time
at in the summer!" I asked.
A grunt, which meut an affirmative
uswer, was forthcoming tn response,
"Then why did he not make a snake
tbat would be able to stand the winter, to
that ho might be on band to punish you
then for your winter misdoings*"
"Ughl" snld tho Indian. "Great Spirit
two kinda snakes. Give spotted ones rest
half year. Frost and enow winter snake
enough. Great Spirit leave to frost and
mow Job punishing wicked during winter
time.  They take care."
There is something in all thli. Thtnd
man has but a slim chance to enjoy himtelf during the winter seaton. He hat no
furnace—warmed residence, and the tor-
tare tbat he undergo.! when the thermometer is down low mutt bt a gnat
deal wont than the presence of a good
many snakes. He regards It at tuch, aud
thinks he Is entitled to tbe luxury of a
tew peccadilloes, aeelng that ho has to pay
tor them so dearly.
But the nineteenth century Indian It ot
tho opinion that he hot fallen on good
dayi. Ho sees reptiles that are amall ia
tlie, whoso duty It It tokeep hlm In order;
but the reptilian punishments that hit
fathers had to undergo were, to bla mlud
far moro terrible than any he has to submit to now.
He takes me ta the probable abode of a
hngo reptile that wormed for himself a
house out of solid rook In this vlclulty-a
hole-assessing In lta windings nsnake-
like character eighty feet long, ending lu
a cul de too about ten f nt square.
Thla peculiar underground panage.lnto
which an Indian took mo on my hand!
ud kneel a ahort time ago, Is tbe reputed
abode of a monster ot tht make tribe, who
used to wander .round ln thii region,
Intent on keeping ln order tho wicked
Indiana with an eternal commission from
tho Great Spirit to do what ho deemed
necessary ln tho good work.
Lait Hour ot> Spy.
Ho wot a full-bearded young man,
grown old within a alnglo day—tho
northern armies hod quartered thuin.
3elves near his old home wlioro lio know
every inch oi ground | Southern aoliliiiiu,
his comrades, dared him to bo a hero;
ho volunteered in tho dond of night to
cross; at sunrise the oncmy't position
was traced on paper—hastily but trulv;
wlillo attempting to reach his cam],, do
was caught by an Union neighbor. "Hot

cost my life-lot me go! Arthur, let me
_o I" "No, for the sake of tho Union you
must bo judged, you must die, as Helen
died; you left ner, but you'll not loavo
me......"  He was grown old in a
day—alter death wot pronounced on
him. As long as he was in harmony
with her, his happiness teemed endless;
he went with tho South, tho did not;
they quarrelled, she died. Ho began to
fight Tiravely, he courted death, but
death avoided him. He pondered how
ho could rise in hit own esteem; othen
besides him wore brave; so ho became a
spy. The prison walls scorned to bo
elastic—they bulged out until they burst;
he was onco moro a free man; to Helen's
J rave would be his lint walk. But trail-
only ho itarted up; thero was ttill tbo
'solitary prison; lie wat dreaming while

we shall not shoot you; our gum aro

hit face; he resolved In hia heart that

and traded in mysterious ways, but offenses of thit kind do not fall within the
provisions of the penal code; The city's
umbrellas aro worth, if they bo valued at
the average of one dollar each, the sum
of $10,000. The valuation may b. rather

Bnt the Council In Warmly Hup-tortcd
anil Only one or Two Weak Voices
Says Nay.
In response to the call of tho mayor,
who had been requested to call a meeting to discuss railway matters, about
250 ratepayers assembled in Hyack
Hall last night. Although some sharp
sparring occurred during the evening
good humor prevailed, and when the
meeting closed everyone appeared to
be in the beat of humor.
Mayor Dickinson opened the proceedings by stating he had called the
meeting at the request of a number of
oitizens, but he did not know what was
intended to he done. He then called
on the meeting to olect a chairman.
Mayor Dickinson was elected to the
chair and Col, McGregor chosen to act
as secretary. His worship then called
upon those who signed tho requisition
to explain their object.
t Mr. J, E, Lord said he had a resolution to put to the meeting, but would
liko to Bay a few words first. The
meeting was called to take action
ngainst the council, not against the
railway company. A number of citizens felt the council had taken an unwarranted and illegal action iu placing
the debentures in the hands of a number of citizens without taking from
them bonds or securities of any kind.
Mr. Lord then proceeded to give a
history of the railway since its conception nnd concluded by rending tho
resolution passed by the council appointing a trust to hold the debentures,
winding up with tho remark "Aiut
that a grab."   (Great laughter.)
Mr. J. 0. Armstrong seconded the
resolution, which read as follows:—
Whereas, Wo the ratepayers believe
the municipal counoil has acted illegally
in pat-sing j& resolution placing the de-
bei'tures for $150,000, voted under the
Steam Ferry Bonus By-law and Foundry
and Workshops Bonus By-law, taking
tho debentures out of the hands of the
city's representatives, and placing them
in tho hands of trustees, a number of
theie trustees being members of the
railroad company, and without bonds or
any other security:
Therefore, We auk the counoil to
reconsider and rescind the resolution
aud leave the debentures as before under
bonuB by-laws, and inonoy to be paid as
so provided under said bonus by-laws.
When Mr. Lord had road the resolution he said: "That's what we're
here for, to get the counoil to undo
the work thoy have done." (Laughter).
Mr. Jaqucs— "Read it again, Mr.
LordI" (Oncers).
Mr. J. 0. Armstrong, in response to
calls, said he had nothing to aay except that the council had no right to
deputize others to do their duties. Tho
whole thing was illegal and against the
wish of the people. If tho council
were not competent to do their dnty
let them resign, and the peoplo would
elect competent men. He concluded
by saying an injunction would bo put
on the council restraining them from
making over tho debentures to the
trust
Mr. Lundbom waB called nabut -refused to speak, as he had not signed
tho requisition and know nothing
about it.
Mr. Herring aaid he wished to explain why he had voted against the resolution. It was because ho did not
like the way it was got up. Ho had
taken the best legal advice in Victoria
and found the action of the council to
be illegal.
Mr. Peter Grant aiked how the bonus was paid to tho Canadian Pacific
Railway.
Mayor DlokinBon— "It was paid in
trus into the bank of B.O."
Mr, Grant—"Then it was out of the
council's handi." 'V «i-.'-"-j
Mayor Dickinson—"Yes, Hfi"rAt-
bott refuied to do a stroke of work until the money was oat of the city's
hands, so it was paid into the Bank of
B. C. in trust for the company. (Applause).
Mr. Lord commenced a lot of statements so palpably incorrect that the
mayor was obliged to characterize the
wholo as untrue.
Hit worship gavo a short resume of
the railway negotiations and concluded
as follows: "Notwithstanding what
has been said I believe Mr. Herring
hss opposed this resolution in order to
{*ain public favor as I believe he is
ooking for high eivio honors. He
thinks he hai struck oil, but, if I know
the feeling of the people correctly, he
will find himself snowed in. Here is
Mr. Armstrong wishing to build the
road with one hand and trying lo pull
it down with the other. Ho is un*
certain what to do, and tickles the C.
P.R. while pretending to want the
Southern to he built Tbe men who
nre endeavoring to keep baok the
Southern railway are tho men who
lm-vn ever beon opposed to the city's
progress and advancement. (Great
applause).
Mr. Thos, Cunningham said he
wanted to introduce a resolution, but
wished to hear Mr. Bole speak first
Mr. Bole said he had been included
in  tho requisition as worthy to be
preient at the meeting and now he was
wanted to spoak.   In common praotice
it wai not customary for the prisoner
(for so he took himself to be) to make
tho first statement, but if any charge
was brought against him he would endeavor to answer it   Anyone of tho
opinion that hit ndvioe was not correct
could have it argued out before the
courts.   Ho did not propoie to be
played battledore and shuttlecock with
by a few  cranks.   Continuing,   Mr.
Bole laid:   "Now, gentlemen, I don't
want you to think I mean all who
signed the requisition aro oranks, but
a numbor of them are and I defy thoro
to fill any other bill. (Laughter), Since
my arrival in Westminster,  12 yean
ago, Mr. Lord hu been first and foremost in all attempts to keen back the
oity's advancement.   Ho hat alwavs
been ready with the cry,  'Jeremiah,
Jeremiah, woe is mo' (great applause).
Now, is regards the debentures, I defy any man, who is not a liar or a fool,
to say it was not thoroughly understood every cent of the money was to
go for railroad and ferry boat construction."
Mr. Grimmer-«*No."
Hr. Bole—"Very well, but I repeat,
the money wai intended to be spent in
the manner uid.   If injunctions are
wanted it ii euy to go to Victoria
where some enemy to Weitmimter can
be found ready to undertake anything
against it.   Ai to Mr. Lord, 1 have no
hard feelings againit him as he is only
an antediluvian moubaok and being
tuch deserves  sympathy.    But the
game of Mr. Lord and his friends are
too euily seen through.   They are
playinp into the hands of the O.P.R,
I am sorry to hear Mr. Armstrong's
ohange of front is co-incident with his
return from Vancouver."
Mr. Thoi. Cunningham — "Tbo
ground hu been to well covered by
Mr. Bole-"
Mr. Lord-"With abuse."
Mr. 0—"I think he hu given you
what you deserved. (Much laughter).
From the first Mr. Lord hu been
prominent in opposing the Southern
Railway."
Mr. Lord—"Show mo one word."
Mr. C—"Why you came to me and
asked mo to oppose it. (Great laugh-
tor, and cries of 'Coffins'), and I also
heard you advising peoplo against it in
front of your own door. (Renewed
applause). At the meeting in August
I believed the promoters of the railway
to be consistent and I believe it now.
(Applause). I prefer the truitees to
the bank. (Great applause). I would*
like the secretary to read iny resolution.
Moved by Thos. Cunningham, seconded
by J. 6. Jacques. Besolved, that this
meeting heartily endorses the action of
tho New Westminster municipal counoil
in relation to Southern Railway affairs
and considers that Bald counoil Is deserving of credit for the able and careful
manner in which it bus conducted this
important enterprise.
Mr. Jnques—"I have muoh pleasure
in seconding tho resolution, (Applause.)
Mr. Armstrong—"There is no uie
drawing the O P. R. across peoples'
noses like a red herring. Everyone
wants the railway but if the money is
gone and no railway what are we going
to do. Mr. Sheafe came over here
with bis Yankee whang to carry away
the British bonds, but he didn't get
them. It seems rather strange to see
Mr. Bole acting u city solicitor and
solicitor for the railway company."
Mr. Bole—"I dont aee wby Mr.
Armstrong should bear out. the only
text in the Scriptures he knows, but
I might tell him I have no branch
lino to build."
Senator Mclnnes said it seemed
from the language used that tho speakers must have been attending Mr.
Moody's meetings, but he was sorry
to see the Scriptures put to such base
use. He had attended many publio
meetings but had never heard men
occupying fhe positions the speaker!
did using such language as was made
use of by Mr. Bole and othert. The
senator then read teveral clauses relating to the issuance of tho debentures
and contended the trust wu iu complete opposition to the agreement missed by the people, The people had
no confidence in the company; the
money wu voted for workshops and
a ferry steamer and not for railway
constructions. The senator thought
that if the road wai built to the boundary and the money expended the
work would stop there and he was of
the opinion the Westminster portion
of tbe road should be left to tho last
He then went on to explain the railroad fight in Manitoba and make a
strong attack on the railway policy of
the Dominion government lu conclusion tho senator uid: "You are
mortgaging the city for 50 years.
With respect to the trust selected I
think it most extraordinary. If the
council had not the ability to carry out
the agreement why did they not resign gracefully and lot tho people
elect men who had the ability to do
their duty properly. If the Northern
Pacifio could have got the roid I
would not have objected and would
have been willing to bonus it to the
extent of $250,000."
|iM*.*Bo|e uid he had heard the
worthy senator wu loaded for bear
(Mr. Bole) and intended to make
things lively for him. -'But," uid
Mr. Bole, "I had no idea Senator
Molnnes would turn on the Dominion
government and abuu it after having
received the honor of senatorship from
its hand. It seems to me like the our
that bit the hand which fed it       • •
Mr. D. S. Sinclair uid he oould go on
for hours and- tell where railroads had
bamboozled towns, and he believed in
hia heart that the Southern would
never be built q
Senator Mclnnes uid he had mado no
attack on Mr. Bole, but the latter with
hiwiatiwo Irish wit and like a third class
pettifogging lawyer had' turned the
remarks by ridicule. The senator
continued at some length and wound
up by uying: "Don't be carried away
by glib tongued lawyers and American
railroad schemers."
Mr. Bole—"Or by exploded politicians."   (Laughter.)
Dr. Kent wanted the railroad built
on righteous principles. He went into
a lot of figures attempting to show
that tho $160,000 voted to tbo railway
would amount, with interest, at the
end of 50 years to more than the present value of all the real estate in the
city. Tho figures were so absurdly inaccurate and ridiculous that the meeting grBW tired and forced Dr. Kent by
cheers, cries and stamping to discontinue his speech.
Mayor Dickinson uid Dr. Kent's
figures wore all astray and he thought
from the doctor's present actions he
would toon become at obnoxious to the
people of Weitmimter at ho wu to the
people of the Delta. The mayor then
proceeded in a vory olear manner to
explain the exact cost of tho debentures
to the city and in a few words showed
the absurdity of Dr. Kent's figures,
As no one seomed inclined to con*
tinue tho discussion, Mayor Dickinson
put the resolution, in amendment to.
Mr. Lord's, expressing every confidence in tho mayor and council and
supporting the council's action in ap*
pointing tho debenture trust. The
amendment wu carried almost unanimously, only ono or two "nays" being
hoard in response to tho mayor's will
for votes against it.
The meeting then adjourned.
