The Burning Question!
To-raurrow will mark an era ia the
history of New Westminster. Two
bylaws ure to be voted on. We
will not recapitulate here what depends upon the passage of theso bylaws. Our readers do not need to
be told. Elsewhere we republish
the agreement and bond printed the
otlier day, uiijl appended to the
ugroenipiit will M found an uuwnd-
ment to clause' 7, whieh is printed
for the first time to-day. The original clause T has been the subject
of considerable adverse criticism,
which the amendment would appear
to obviate. We publish to-day two
communications, one of whioh is
rather hostile to the entire scheme
now before the people, Tbe Columbian adheres to the stand taken ae
first—to allow every side to liave its
full say. Our readers must judge
for themselves. In addition to what
haB been published, we have
secured the agreement between
the city and the company for
publication, We received it too late
to print this evening, however.
Other interesting matter has also
been crowded out, In view of these
circumstances, and the critical importance of the occasion, we have
decided to issue an oarly morning
edition of Tin* Columbian to-morrow, in addition to the regular evening one. This will contain the bylaws, agreement,  and  bond,  with
amendment, the, agreement between
_. ._ J ' , %Hyhlp-jhttu ,
the city nnd company (not yet published), a full and interesting report
of the public meeting in the council
chambers to-night, and the latest
night despatches, besides editorial
comment, etc. We have given every
lut Uud _ Cop uorreupomlotioe. heretofore, but have no room, and oan ae-
copt no communication! from any
quarter for this special edition. We
consider that this morning edition
is culled for under the circumstances,
and trust that the public will
appreciate 6uf, t-Wtr^ikt*"* The
extra addition will necessitate a
large additional expenditure, for
telegraphic news and for labor, as
our entire stall will be obliged to
work all night. The papers ean he
obtained from the newsboys, the
newstands, and at this office for 10
cents apiece,
■tail Tliese rinm.
The cost of the branoh line of the
C.l'.R. from the junction to Westminister was I—
Railway bonus    $75,000
Right of way     35,000
Und granted      20,000
Or n total cost to the city of   130,000
or $10,200 per mile.
At the same rate the 146 miles to
Seattle would cost $2,425,000.
The Canadian Pacific Railway spent
$5,000 in station buildings etc in
Westminster.
The present bonus bylaws provide
for an actual expenditure of $150,000
by the Southern Railway Company in
Ihn cily of Westminster.

Loniios, Aug. 4.—The pessimist
bos certainly a strong argument against
the optimistic view taken nf European
affairs as a result of the : visit of the
Emperor of Germany tu Russia, Sweden and Denmark, powers which are
noted for their hatred of Germany and
everything German*. The fact is that
on the continent in season and out of
season whether the talk is of peace or
of war the oue universal rule is to arm
and to continue arming. Oue of the
latest telegrams announces anuther
large prospective addition to the already overgrown army of Russia. In
Fiance tho army has been vastly improved in its training, organization
and armament, and at present is better
disciplined, trained and officered than
it has been aince 1870. Recent
ohanges in the highest department
show that the machinery of supreme
command is receiving full consideration. The splendid forts which stud
the eastern frontier ore beini* rapidly
strengthened and made proof as far as
possible against new explosives. Germany, Russia, Austria, France, Italy
and even England have of late developed an intense anxiety to strengthen
their naval defenees, and large sums
are now being spent by each of the
powers in building iron olads, cruisers
and torpedo boats.
TO-DAY'S DESPATCHES.
" UTTLE rHII, " HAS OONJS ALOFT.
Norquitt, Mass., Aug. C— General
Sheridan died shortly after 10 o'clock
last night. Although somewhat restless he had been seemingly bright and
cheerful through the day, his voice was
strong and he had partaken of a full
supply of nourishment. At about 9:30
o'clock symptoms of hesrt failure suddenly appeared. Remedies which had
heretofore been successful were vigorously applied but proved ineffectual,
and he sank rapidly, dying painlessly
at the hour named. The goneral, who
had made his will, leaves a wife nnd
four small ohildren, threo girls and one
boy.
habbaa noR-ros pavaBtrn.
Dublin, Aug. fi.—The court of appeal this morning refused tn grant a
writ ot habeas corpus for tho release of
Dillon, M.P., from prison, and can-
firmed his conviction.

amine the so-called agreement between
tlie Southern Railway Co. And the contractors, and, keeping in view the object
of the proposed bylaws, the more I am
convinced that Westminster needs some
wise and reliable councillors to deal with
this matter. It fe very evident that the
contractors in this agreement are wily
hound to the building of the railway He
from the south bank of the .river to the
boundary line, including amongst other
necessary things "machine shops," tc.
Now, if the contractors ara bound to
build these works on that line what abont
the works on the north side of the river,
for which the bonus bylaw provides?
Surely the city will not payfor such
works on both sides of the river. The
1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 13th sections contain
the agreement betweeen the contractors
und the company. This agreement does
not bind the corporation and the com*
paiiy to anything; and if the city coun*
citlors are wise men they will not, in
their agreements with the company, be
bound to anything except the payment
of the proposed amount as set forth In
the bylaws, for a specific purpose or purposes. The company have uo right to
make use of the name of the city in tlieir
riement with the contractors, except
oity is foolish enough to endorse tut
gratuitous clause in section 3, above referred to. The city should not engage to
pay any bonus except for specified work
performed, and the only object in taking
a bond from the company is to guarantor
the continuous construction and operation
of the road oa far as Seattle, and also the
operation of the ferry and foundry for all
time after their construction. The city
is perfectly safe if it does not set iti seal
to any extraneous matter and keeps t
sharp eye on tho lawyers.

Tke Soalhern Ballwijr Bylaw,
Editor Columbian. — Great feeling
haB been manifested in this city over the
reputed attempt on the part of the Canadian Pacifio Railway to belittle and destroy Westminster, in the hope that by
so doing they might inorease the value
of their property at Vanconver. In this
connection would it not be as well to
consider a phase ofthe Southern Railway
scheme, as yet not touched upon, viz.:
That Messrs. Canfield k Co,, the promoters of the Seattle and B. D. road own
the greater portion of the townsltes and
adjoining properties of Whatcom and Se-
home, and that their all in all depends
upon the building up of a rival town a
few miles to the south of us, in whioh
event Westminster will be between two
fires. If tho company mean business
why do they not commeuce construction
from Iwtb ends at once. Westminster
can not afford to vote 1160,000 to their
road with a certainty of waiting four
years for its completion, and in all probability an indefinite time longer. Rumor states that Messrs. Canfield k Co.
are men of straw in the financial world,
and this rumor is credited as coming from
men of sound commercial standing whose
word can be relied upon.
Voters go slow. Read carefully the
loosely worded agreement, full of loophole of every kind, that was published
in last Friday's Coi.imniAN, and ask
yourselves, Why weic these agreements
withheld until the very lost moment?
Wore the directors and other interested
parties afraid of tbe criticisms they were
bound to receive if time was allowed?
Where is the agreement between the
Citv and the Southern Ry Co,, which up
to this date has been carefully hidden
away? Are we expeoted to vote blindly,
without knowing what the conditions
are? What are the company bound to,
and what security have we that they
can, or will carry out their contract?
What is to prevent Messrs. Canfield ft
Co. from building to V.'hatcom and then
refusing to go farther? Ai ter their nest is
feathered, what care they for the people
of Westminster or tho taxpayers, who if
these by-laws are passed aro loading
themselves down for years to come with
increased rates. If everything is square
and above board, why thia continual
mystery and working the dark. The
scheme smells too strongly of Jobbery to
warrant hon-nt people in voting for it.

The Seattle Enterprise has an
article on " "Local Patriotism," from
which wo olip tho following, as it
may contain a hint and u lesson for
the people of the royal city: "Aside
from all her other advantages Seattle is strong in the local patriotism
of her people. Nearly every oitizen
is enthusiastic, and with fnll warrant, in her behalf. This of itself
gives grateful assurance of her future.
A distinguished writer has said that
a great opera house, a great hotel
and a great newspaper will rally
about them a great oity in a wilderness. Local patriotism will go behind this and build the theatre, the
hotel, and the newspaper, and all
else that is necessary to the advancement of the oity, and it is a
kind of patriotism which is of the
best, for he who is enthusiastic,
zealous and enterprising in his own
city or oountry is certain to be as
deeply interested for the good of the
whole country. Local patriotism is
the scion on which is engrafted, and
whioh nourishes, national patriotism,
just as woll governed families are the
bulwark of a noble sooial system."
careful consideration. As they now
have very good reason to doubt the
correctness of this belief, tlioy will
probably renew their interest ill the
orb of night, and study its phenomena as they never did before, ln
doing so they will bo aided by the
great Lick telescope, which is expeoted to do magnificent work.
Writing to a friend regarding his
first observations through this wonderful instrument, Prof. Holden recently said that its performance was
"superb," and added: " I have had
■uoh views of the bright planets
(Mars and Jupiter), of nebulae, the
Milky Way, and some of the stars
as no other astronomer ever before
had," Suoh an instrument should
be able to throw incroascd light upon the moon and its mysteries.

This has turned out a bad year,
agriculturally, for Ontario, The
long season of drought, say eastern
papers, haa practically ruined the
crops over a good part of the province. While the Niagara peninsula,
the Lake Erie shore, and such counties as Wellington, Perth, Waterloo
and Middlesex have had, if not
enough, at least sufficient rain to
bring the crops forward, the whole
area of the midlands as far east as
Brockville, and a large part of tho
northern and northwestern counties,
have not had during the whole summer enough rain to moisten the
ground to a depth of more than
three or four inches. As the ground
was dry in the spring, this lack of
rain has almost destroyed the crops.
The hay is nearly all in, and many
farmew have not enough of it to feed
their horses during the fall ploughing. The root crop will be a failure.
Barley, oats and peas have been
greatly injured. Not only will the
quantity of grain produced be small,
but there will be comparatively little
straw, So greatly has the harvest
been injured, in fact, that in the
opinion of competent authorities,
there will not be in tlie midlands
straw, hay, roots and grain enough—
including barley—to feed the stock.
This is, moreover, the second year of
scarceness, and especially of short
feed crops. Farmers have, therefore,
neither a reserve stock of money nor
of feed to carry them through the
coming winter. So serious is the
position of affairs that people are
beginning even to talk about getting
the government, either of tbe Dominion or of the province, to come
to the farmers' assistance, either by
lending them the money to carry
them on till next year, or by beginning great publio works in the distressed districts, at which they could
find employment.
The moon is rather a touchy subject to write on, it will be admitted,
considering lhat the lunar orb is supposed to not only interfere with the
normal sea-level, but to play pranks
with people's "internal calculus"
when it gets " full," which it does
periodically. The moon, too, has
the same excuse often urged by its'
faithful imitators here below, viz.,
that it can't help getting full. Our
readers will remember that on the
evening of the 32nd of July last the
orb of night, when gloriously full,
was completely thrown into the
shade by this ambitious planet
known as the earth taking into its
head that it would be a line joke to
boycott the moon by getting between
it and the aun, with the result that
the earth got in its own light as well.
The moral of thia is obvious (Victoria and Vancouver papers please
make a note). During the recent
total eclipse the astronomers, as
usual, kept their weather eye on the
earth's satellite. Prof. Todd, of
Amherst College Observatory, according to the Mail, secured many
photographs of the eclipse, while
other phases were observed with the
large telescope. The most important
result of Prof. Todd's observations
was the discovery that the duration
of the phenomenon was nearly ten
minutes greater than the computed
time given in some astronomical
works as the greatest possible length
of such an eclipse. This discovery
bas already attracted much attention, and will doubtless lead to new
calculations relating to the moon.
The only possible explanations are
that the astronomers were mistaken
in their former reokonings as to the
distance between the earth and its
satellite, or that the latter has since
ipproaohed tha former, or that the
diameter of the moon has diminished or that of the earth increased.
It is possible also, though not probable, that Prof. Todd has made some
mistake. It is not at all unlikely
that the above results of observations
of the recent eclipse, as well as the
suspicion ofthe.existence of a satellite of the moon, will lead to the
payment of greater attention in future to lunar phenomena. Astronomers hav* been inelined to believe
that nothing more oould be learned

flgtiriiufc the bur in each place. During
tho dnys ot Tombstone's prosporifcy he
VMS ft United States Commissioner in
Arizona, residing in Tombstone, aud when
President Arthur issued bis famous proclamation ordering tho outlaw cowboys
to disband Judgo Drum took an active
part In its enforcement.
A brace of cowboys were at one time arraigned before him for holding up tt,
United States mail coach between Benson
and Tombstone. The Judge held them
both for trial without bail, aud sent them
to tlm Tucson jail for safe keeping.
This made tbe cowboys very indignant,
and threats were made that Judge Drum's
earthly career would bo wound up.
A few days after be ordered the prisoners taken to Tucson, Rod Thornton, a notorious desperado, quietly entered Judge
Drum's office. Tho Judge waa sitting
nlona behind a'desfc.
lie recognized Thornton ns he entored,
but pretuidod to keep on writing without
taking any notice of bim.
In tho meantime, however, be managed!
to get liis hand on a double-barreled shotgun,with the barrels abbreviated to ubout
fourteen inches in length, that rested
against his desk within easy reach. He
lifted it up, and, concealing it behind a
pilo of books, with his hand still grasping
It, asked Thornton what ho wanted, as
that gentleman appeared in front of tho
desk.
"Be you Jedgo Drum?" asked tho desperado.
"Ibe," responded tho Judge.
'    "Well, I kem to settle wld-ypu about
sendin* the b'yes to juil," remarked tha
desperado.
"How are yon going to do it?"
"Jedgo, you'r o a pnrty good-lookin
duck, au' I hate ter do it, but I've got ter
blow tho top of your 7,— head off," remarked the gentleman with the red hair.
"That wouldn't be much fuu forme,"
said the Judge.
"Jodge, you're too d— funny," said
the desperado, und he made a motion for
Ills gun.
As ho did so the Judgo presented his
ohotgmij stood up, aud held the muzzle
' within two feet oftho desperado. This
was something that had not been calculated on, and the intruder's disappointment was apparent. «
"Throw up your bands!" called out tho
Judge.
Thornton obeyed promptly.
'■Now remain in that position until
somebody comes along to take off your
pistols," said the Judge.
"Thornton did as he was told.   '
Iu a few minutes footsteps were heard
in tho hall and tho Judge called the passer-by to enter.
It happened to be a lawyer who bad an
ofllce in the same building,   Judge Drum
'told (bo lawyer to relievo tlm desperado
[of his pistols, warning the latter Mat if
he mnde a move he would ^S'b a double
' i'hnrj-jo of buckshot.
The desperado's pistols wero taken from
\ him, and then, in frout of Judge. Dramas
gun, he was marched to tho Shorfff's
affile and turned over to thy custody of
hat officer. Ic happened I hat Uie Sheriff
had a warrant for Thornton's arrest for
dage robbing, and lie was sent to the
L'ucsou jail to keep his friends company.

In many parish honks, about 300 years
old, we find such eulvfns as these: "Payd
for whippin tow pore folk, Ijd." "Payd
and given to a pore ma/i and his wlff that
was whipped, ilijd." This was double
the usual tariff, which is represented by
"Gave tho tow when tbey went ijd."
In Saxon times tho beggar, unless tie
found refugo in one of tho then thinly scattered monasteries was in ovil case. He
bclougod to tho dangerous Jiribe of mi*
torlessmen, peoplo for whom' no ono was
anawerablo, and thoso who sheltered him
wore fain to do it by stealth, for if a man
stayed with you more than a couple el
days you wore accountable, not only for
anything he might then do, but also lor
his antecedents.
Mr. Ribton Turner thinks race has had
a good deal to do with beggary. When
you take away a man's frienus of life ha
must either starve or rob or I ier/.
Theoldest natives of GrcatBt'ltain were
short, dark people—Bas<_u"eu, some say;
Esquimaux say others. The tall, light-
haired Gaol beat them out from almost
every where excopt partof South .WnlcB,
Then the Oymri, another Celtic peoplo,
came across from tho Clmbrk- Chersonese
(Denmark), landed in Aberdeen, spread
over Scotland as Piotii, and coming southward, wero met by the tide of the HWiion,
or, as tbe now lights prefer to call it,
"Knglish" invasion,nnd turned asideMt
Wales.
What the round-skulled Gael had done
to the short-BkuIled who preceded him
tho Saxon did to the Gaol. Ho took hit
tilled land away from him; tn those days
ltwas not much, nine-tenths of the Islnnd
being forest aud marsh, and-he gave no.
chauce of settling near him and bringing
in some of tlio wild country.
That was not done till later, when Ihe
monasteries (true agrluultii!*! toiutiua)
sot the example of matin c ttie depart
smile. The conquered had nothing ro* it
but to submit to slavery ot to "men
on."
If he moved on with a lot of friends
he might settle down somewhere in
Wales, or on the Cornish moors, or in fJM
wild district called Cumbria (Cymrl'e
hand), from Chester to Solwny. But
there would generally be somebody to
turn out, so, if ho wns alone or with a ttw
begging or robbing (the two were Into*
changeable) was his only resource.-^U
the Year Round.
THE FAITHL     i LIONESS.
ObsorvntEono by Beaters Which Do Ber
No Crodit.
The lioness often asserts herself, and
shows the lion that she is not dependent upon him.
Air. Anderson relates, in his "Twenty-
five Years in a Wagon," that one day,
whilo sitting under a baobab tree in a
Soutli African forest, he heard the sound
of loud, deep, bass voices. Lying down
in the grass, rifle in hand.be waited, at
the animals seemed to be approaching.
Ho soon saw a lion nnd a lioness quar*
relhig about seventy yards from the tree.
The lioness kept throwing back her ean
and showing her teeth, at the same time
pawing the lion in the fane and lashing
out with her tail. The Hon took it all
with quiet dignity, now and then growl-
iuir out a ibinonstrnuco.
At last( the lioness, giving several oatlike spits* bounded Into the bush, and the
lion walked off in another direction.
A hunter told Mr. Anderson thot he
ouce watched a lion and a lioness from a
troo. Another lion began roaring Intho
distance, whereupon the lioness, in spito
of tho lion's efforts to prevent her, roared
in reply,
At last the other Hou appeared, and
each roared out a challenge. A fight began, their strong bones were heard
cracking, and the flrst Hon was killed.
With a whisk of her tail, the lioness
went oft with the conqueror.
"Oh, you jadel" shouted tho huntor.
'SILVER SWEETNESS."
V.T'.nt Becomes of the Silver Pat Into the
Melting Pot mt Boll Foundries*
It has long been thought an excellent
thing to mix silver with the other metal
when a bell was to be cast, and many
pious persons have rejoiced at the
thought that the silvery obi me ot their
church bell was in part due to their
gifts.
Now comes a writer in an English idem ilie paper with this paragraph:
"I once asked a foreman In a well-
known belt foundry whether pnttlng silver iu a melting pot was of advantage.
Ho replied ot great, advantage—to tho
founder, us the silver sinks to the hot*
tern; the founder pours off the copper
cud tlu, and when the silver has cooled
puts it in his pocket."
Odd Articles of Food.
Ants are eaten by various nations. In
Brazil they are served with resinous
sauce, aud in Africa they are stewed with
crease or butter. The East Indians eat
them in pits and carefully wash them iu
huudfuls, like raisins. In Siam a curry
of ant eggs is a costly luxury.
The French will eat frogs, snails and
tho diseased livor of geese, but draw tho
line ut alligators.
After they hnve wouud the silk from
the cocoon the Chinese eat tho chrysalis
of tho silk-worm.
In Mexico parrots are eaton, but they
uro rather tough.
Spiders roasted are a sort of dessert
with the Kew Caledonians.
In tho Pacific Islands and West Indies
IkiT.vd eggs are eaten with great gusto.
I For a Country Dlnaer.
A country garden Is a boon to a tired
ell, .particularly if it is one of the old-
fashioned gardens, with Its lilacs, hollyhocks, miguouette aud violets.
And for a country dinner the table
should be near tho window or windows,
if possible. In fine wyatber It should bo
on tho veranda, looking Into the garden.
Audit ouo musteline iuttHHinll room,

Thero should bo a sideboard nud sldo
taMes, relays of knives, forks and spoons.
Uiiihcsaud glasses not in use can stand;

A maidservant should be taught how
to carve, and how to serve the dinner

informed of the affair and let to -work
immediately to investigate it,  and to
him we nre indebted for the following
particulars.   A  week  ago yesterday
morning a kloochnian,  Hi years old, j
wrnt out for it hatha, mul on returning :
tu her houso complained  of being ill
and lay  down on  the bod,   A few
minutes afterwards   three Chinamen
entered the house, and seeing the girl
on the bed asked what was the matter
with her.   On being told they declared
themselves to be doctors and  would
cure her.   The  mother of the girl
ordered them to leave the house, but
they refused, and the tallest and shortest ot the three went to the bed and
began operations on the girl while the
third remained at the door on  watch.
The shortest of the Chinamen seized
the girl!* hand   and   held   it   fast
while   the   othor   drew    something
from his pocket, placed it ou her wrist
and set tiro to it.   The burning substance burnt tho poor girl severely,
and sho screamed with pain.   They
then opened the girl's mouth and one
of  thorn,  with a Urge needle, tore
away the skin over tho lingual artery,
and, running tho needle undor tlio artery,  tore it apart,  aud  tho blond
gushed out iu a torrent. • With diabolical cruelty the fiend next proceeded to
tear open two arteries in tho throat
end some small veins abovo the navol.
During the time this was proceeding
the family wero calling on the Chinamen to desist and leave the place, but
the man who stood watch at tho door
assured them it was ull right and the
girl would be well in an hour.   After

EX-SENATOR CANFIELD INTERVIEWED.
The Company's Plans.- ilupld Completion Promised.
What   Kx-Scnator  Canfield  Says
About the ttoad and Ferry
Service.
One o{ the most peculiar and fiendish murders ever perpetrated in this
distriot wu brought to light on Saturday. Through some Indians Mr. McTiernan, Indian agent, learned that an
Indian woman residing at Qanoo Pass
had co-aw to her death at the hands of
three Chinsften.  Mr. Moreeby wai
Bailway mutters being the sole topic
of conversation to-dny, und expressions
from contractors being iu order a representative of the Columbian interviewed Senator Cantield for the* purpose of securing information as to the
views and intentions ofthe contractors.
Senator Canfield expressed his willingness to answer any questions put to
him which would ba of interest to the
public or enlighten them hs to the intentions of the company.
How soon do you expect to have the
line completed to Seattle ?
Four years is the time fixed for the
entire completion of the road, which
is necessary in case of some unavoidable delay, but, everything favorable
and our present calculations correct,
we will be in Seattle by the close of
next year. From Bellingham Bay to
the head of lako Whatcom, a distance
of 18 milea, the line will be completed
by the 31st March next and to Seattle
by the fall. There is some very heavy
work near Seattle which may prolong
tho completion for a short time beyond thut date bet bucIi is not expected.
When will trains be running to
Whatcom?
Commoncing work at this seusn of
of the year and Hearing winter when1
work will be greatly retarded by unfavorable weather for sevoral months,
the completion of the road to Whatcom will be considerably delayed but
regular trains will be running to Bellingham Bay within one year. This
is positively certain.
When do you expect the steamer
line to be running 1
I have mode arrangements for a
daily line of steamers from Whatcom'
to Seattle and a tri weekly, and possibly a daily line from New Westminster
to Whatcom. I am now in communication with Mr, Holcomb, of the O.R-
& N. Co., on this subject snd am
hourly expecting a telegraph from him
saying when he will be here to see the
people, and I liave no doubt if he  is
firomised proper support that a daily
ine will be inaugurated.
What bonus does your company receive from Whatcom and other places
the line will run through?
According to the laws of tlie United
States the towns of territories are prohibited from giving bonuses or loans
to any company so that it is impossible for them to give us the aid, as a
people, they wish to do. To overcome this difficulty the landowners
of Whatcom havo clubbed together
and have granted a mile of water front
and a sufficient area of land for yard-
room for the next hundred years, also
within threo miles of Whatcom on the
east side of the bay, at two places,
we have been given 2000 feet of water
frontage, besides ample room for station and yards. The title of this will
be iu perpetuity. The people have
also subscribed $50,000 in the company's stock as a proof of their confidence. In addition to all thiB, numerous lots in Whatcom and other places
through which the line passes have
been granted to the company, lu all
we are receiving much more assists nee
from Whatcom to the boundary than
from New Westminster.
How do you intend to equip the
line?
First class in every respect. Our
agreement culls for a lirst class line—
and such it will be.
What about the ferry, and what
style will it be ?
The boat will be a railway feny of
the most approved model, probably
abont 250 feet in length and capable of
carrying a train with locomotive. The
ferry will also be used for local traffio
and will be ample to furnish the farmers with a servico equal to a bridge.
We want to make the ferry pay and
will therefore run it in the interests of
the people. Trips will be made during
the day at intervals of half an hour
each, and the rates will bo such that
no complaints will bo heard on that
much trouble with and have suffered
great loss thereby for many years.
The ferry will in all probability be running thiB full.
What about other lines running into
Westminster f
Arrangements are practically concluded with two Amorican transcontinental lines to run trains iuto Westminster, nnd. two other companies are
now negotiating with us for the same
right.
When do you expect to commence
work ?
Everything depends on the passing
of the by-law, which, if curried, will
decide the matter. If nil goes as we
expect Mr. Hill hus instructions to
commence the work of definite locution un Wednesday morning, uud the
contractors will follow tho engineers as
rapidly as possible. 1 might say the
road to the boundary will be built
from Westminster and all supplies
noccssary tocoiiBtructiou will be purchased iu Westminster. Another
thing, tho steel rails, which are on tho
way from England, will be shipped direct to Westminster and landed hore.
•Simultaneously with the commencement of work iu Westminster, operations will begin from Whatcom to the
boundary and from Whatcom towards
Seattle, also at any points along tho
line whore material can be got in.
What about funds ?
All the money necessary for tlie construction of tbe road has been secured
and you may say the road will be built
as fast as men and money can do the
work.
Other roads have beeu spreading unfavorable reports against the N. W., B.
B. & S.
In spite of the reports so industriously spread by agents of other
roods, I think they will find it impossible to cover creation with a gridiron,
and I guess we will be able to struggle
along and get through. As far as opposition from the C. 1*. it. goes, if thoy
oppose us wo are ready to meet it.
We are building the rond to establish
business, and we will secure it.
What will be the relation between
the Southern road and the B, B. R. &
N. Co?
It will be thnt of close alliance.
Throe of the contractors of the Southern own the majority of the stook in
that company, otherwise we would not
havo undertaken the construction herB.
It has beon stated that other roads
will be allowed to run trains over the
line.   How is that?
Thut is all a mistake. The line will
be operated by its present owners.
Quite likely through cars from other
lines, especially sleepers snd freight
cars to und from the enst and south
will run through to and from New
Westminster, so as to save unnecessary
changes nnd transfers, but the motive
be
handled in the ordinary, way by its
owners.
Is thero any danger that the line
will get into the hands of the C. P. H ?
You may My tnbtilS einpiratically that
it will not. "Neither will it pass into
the hands of any other company to the
south. Offers have repeatedly been
made of large sums for the line and its
franchise, but they have not ever been
considered. Tho timber aud otlier
properties of its owners are of such
importance that they cannot afford to
part with ita management and control
for many times tho amount the Une
will coat. It will be, as I have suid before, an wholly independent line, and be
operated in such a way as will stimulate most largely tha business of the
communities it touches. Bates will
necessarily, be low, since salt water
nenr by afford*. Competition, and any
policy not taking that fnct iuto account
would be suicided.
The Southern Railway Agreement and Bond.
We republish to-day the following
agreement and bond, as it is generally understood that the ratepayers desire to have every opportunity to
