Wiiniii: Doctors Disaqkie.—An
English writer states that one of
the most serious points at issue between science and agricultural practice appears to be the comparative
values of farm-yard manure and artificial fertiliser.. So far as absolute
experiment goes, the evidence seems
to be in favor of the application of
the latter, while, on the other hand,
the preponderating opinion 'among
farmers is on the side of farm-yard
manure. The settlement of the
question must depend to some extent upon the character of the soil
treated.
ElKCTHIOITY HIOM TIIE WlND.—
The power of a wind mill has been
successfully applied to the generation of electricity for demesne pur
poses by Prof. Myth, ofthe Glasgow
Philosophical Society, The windmill was of the old-fashioned kind,
with four arms eaoh, thirteen feet
long. The dynamo was belted directly to the fly-wheel of the mill,
and charged twelve cells of storage;
battery, The ourrent '**ras ulfed both
for light and for driving a turning-
lathe. Ten 8-candle power' incandescent lamps were supplied, with
current to spare, and a good
breeze for half a day stored electricity enough for the Ught required
on four evenings of three or four
hours eaoh.

—Recent analyses are said to have
shown that the various nostrums
used for imparting a golden shade
to the hair all depend for their
action upon the decolorising and
corrosive influence of nascent oxygen or nascent chlorine, the bases
employe. <being peroxide of hydrogen, aqua regia, and bronser's aoid.
Tnofnst of those bates is .the least
harmful, but this produces scalp
sores and skin affections, and in
time'turns the hair an unnatural
gray, The* two acids' powerfully
attack both hair ahd skin, bleaching
and burning Ilia former to a gold
color, staining, the latter like iodine,
and giving rise to unpleasant diseases of both. The preparations all
lead to premature baldness;
Banana Fibre.—Among the valuable products of the soil now largely
suliered to go to waste, according to
the United States Consul at San
Salvador, is the fibre of the banana,
This fibre, which may be divided
into threads of silken fineness, extends the length of the body of
the tree, which grows without a
branch from ten to fifteen feet high,
and has a oiroumferencc at the base
of iwo and a half to three feet. In
Central America, the fibre, with no
preparation except drying, is used
for shoe-strings, lariats, and cords
for all purposes. In its twelve
months of existence, the banana
tree bears only one bunch of fruit,
but from two'to four w ten trees
spring from the roots of the one
that has fallen. At home, the
bunch of bananas is worth fifteen
cents, and the dead treo nothing,
though if the supply wero not inexhaustible, the latter would be worth
ten times the value of the fruit to a
cordago factory, paper mill, or coffee
sack maker. The banana leaf, with
steins of the toughest and finest
threads, is from two and a half to
three feet wide and ten to fifteen
feet long, and serves the native women of San Salvador as an umbrella
in the rainy season, a carpet on
whicli to sit, and a bed on which to
rest.

A MEMBER SUSPENDED.
London, July 20.—The discussion
of the Parnell investigation commission
bill was resumed in the house of commons this evening. The Hon. Walter
B. James, the liberal member for
Gateshead, asked whether any-eotm*-
pondence had passed between the gqv-
ernmentand the owners of the Tunes
respecting the bill providing fnr Ihe
commission, and if so whether the correspondence would be laid on the table
of the house. Mr. W. H. Smith replied there were no documents of the
kind referred to in existence. (Ministerial cheers). Lord Randolph
Churchill asked if Mr. Conybeare was
the author ol the letter which appeared in the Star to-dsy denouncing the
speaker for supporting the motion to
apply the cloture rule In the debate on
the Bonn drainage bill. The letter,
aaid Lord Randolph, accused the
speaker of gross injustice to the minority in the house and that it was a
breach of parliamentary decorum and
nothing short of a public scandal ih
assisting the government to suppress a
debate on a measure which handed
over to Irish landlords £500,000 of
English money. Mr. Conybeare admitted writing the letter. Lord Randolph moved that Mr. Conybeare be
suspended for the remainder of the
session. The letter, he said, was a
gross libel upon the speaker and was a
trave and deliberate insult to the
onse. The speaker ssid that the ap
Elying of the cloture was an act of the
ouse and that he was absolutely powerless in the matter and would leave
the affair to the judgment of the
house. Mr. Gladstone said the publication of tbe letter was distinctly a
breach of privilege and therefore he
would support the motion of Lord
Randolph Churchill. Mr. Sexton said
nothing seemed to be a breach of privilege when committed against an Irish
member. Irish members were unable
to obtain redress for slander in articles
written outside of parliament. He
thought it best to leave an English
parliament to settle the dispute among
themselves. (Laughter and derisive
cheers from the Tories.) Mr. Sexton
then withdrew and the motion was
adopted by a vote of 246 to 108. An
amendment to the motion was afterwards adopted whioh limited the suspension of Mr, Oonybearc to one
month.
,TO-DAY'S DESPATCHES.
RF.DUC'INO SEAMEN'S WAOES.
San Franoisco, July 21.—The Pacifio Coast Shipowners' Association has
just made a second reduction of $5 in

Chicaoo, July 21.—Despatches from
various points on the Burlington road,
where Chairmen Hogs and Murphy
hnve been palling the men on the question of declaring the strike off, say the
majority of them are dissatisfied with
the proposition made by the company,
and are unwilling to have the strike
declared off on any such terms.

New York, July 21. —Additional details have been leoeivcil concerning tho
Haytien rebellion.' Tlre'-sympathlzers
of the banished geuerala, Liogoinate
and Mui-gal, started a lire on July 4th
which burned over 1000 hutises In Port

destroyed. Fortunatelv the wind
shifted and began lo blow off thore,
thus saving much of the oity. Ou the
8th another fire broke nut and burned
another section of the city. Two men
were shot in the act of starling fires,
soldiers patrol Ihe streets regularly
and ste instructed to shoot anybody
oaught setting fire to buildings. A
French guubinil which is lying oil the
city sent several platoons of soldiers to
protect the French residents. Things
are quiet now aud affiirs are supposed
to be in a normal condition.

Oakland and Encinal for a free excursion around the bay of San Francisco.
Shortly after nine o'clock the Belgic,
carrying Governor Waterman, Mayor
Pond and a number of other officials,
stoamed out, snd the other vessels
wero not long in following. Each of
the boata is provided with a band. An
enjoyable day will be spent It is estimated nearly 5,000 teachers took advantage of the free ride.
SENTENCED TO HANG.

THE TARIFF Bill.
Washinoton, July 21.—There,was '
scarcely a vacant chair on the democratic aide of the house, and the re-
Sublioan side waa equally crowded.
Irs. Cleveland and her mother took
seats in the president's gallery. Speaker Carlisle remained in the chair
throughout the entire speech bf Mills
on the bill, and gave it the closest attention On motion of Hills a vote on
freo cotton wu agreed to by ayes 170,
nays 128. Bliss, Merrimsn and Green-
an, of New York, and Hownen, of
Pennsylvania, democrats, voted against *
tho bill; Fitch, of New York, Nelson,
of Minnesota, and Brower, of North
Carolina, republicans, voted ior the
bill. When the speaker announoed
the passage of the bill the democrats
broke into cheers and waved their
bandanas wildly in the air. Boutelle,
republican, ironically moved to take
recess till 8 o'clock as this waa the 27th
anniversary of the battle of Bull Run.
The repubheansin turn greeted this sally
with laughter and applause. A motion
to adjourn until Monday was defeated
by yeas 79, nays 200, and house took
recess until 8 p.m.
Mills, in the course of his speech,
said: "Sugar showed next to the
largest reduction ih the bill, larger
than in hemp, jute, iron, and in everything except wool, but the bill had ■
been called a sections! measure. To
got six millions of protection on Sugar
the government had to collect fifty-
eight millions of tariff duties. In provisions the reduction wss one dollar in
a hundred. It was less than one dollar
iu cotton goods, the duty still remaining at (39.07. In wools and
woolens the reduction wu |20 on (100
and most of that had been caused by
placing wool on the free list The
manufacturer would get free wool and . .
forty per cent, protection, or five per
cent more than he now got, and still
republicans said the hill wss a free
trade measure. Artioles amounting to
twenty million dollars had been placed
on the free list and 16,890,000 of that
was wool.   Cotton had been the chief
Cduct of this oountry, yet the npub-
n party had put it on the free list,
and wore right. The bill whs intended
to benefit the condition and increase
the wages of the laboring people
(applause). The government should
not meddle with the people, They
could take rare of themselves."

Tho Calgary Tftuiie is lutrnirllj
Indignant over, what it colls "thej
JSorthwesfc proliiliitlpn rfarce-'.' Itj
would appear that permission has
been granted the Cuiiailian Pacific
Railway hotel at llanll' to import,
and sell wine <huI.I*«<*1' as h l-evenge,
and the mounted police authorities
liave reoeived instructions not to interfere with them in. the oari-ying
on of that business. The IrtMine
comments as follows: "Wo do not
undertake to spook for other portions
of the territories, but so far as tho
district of Alberta (in which the
National Park, Band. Calgary, Edmonton, Macleod, and Lothbridgo
are included) is concerned, the prohibition, under the above cited law,
of the importation and salo of intoxicating liquors has beon so ineffectively carriod out as to bo esteemed farcical, n by-word and a reproach upon the administration of
the law in these parts. Liquor hss
been all along and is now sold in
large quantities in all these towns
and it is scarcely less difficult to obtain it than, in towns and cities
where regular licenses are in vogue."
Our cotemporary complains, further,
that the Northwest suffers all the
attendant evils of the liquor traffic,
without receiving any revenue therefrom; all of whioh is carted away to
Ottawa, even the lines levied on offenders going to "diminish the deficit
in the.treasury books at Ottawa,"
There is no doubt much truth in our
cotemporary's caustic remarks; but
he is plainly not favorably disposed
towards the "powers that be" in the
federal capital.
According to an   editorial   communication in this morning's News,
Vanconver has just  about thrown
up the sponge.   Their unapproachable harbor no longer fills them with
joy; their  gallons   upon gallons of
salt water have qualmed upon their
stomachs; they have lost sight, for
the time,; even of the  "big battalions," and, like a spoiled child, they
utterly refuse to be comforted unless
a "big ditch" is dug for them from
the Fraser  to  the head of Port
Moody, so as to tumble the  noble
Fraser,  salmon   and  all, into the
bitter waters of the inlet,   The advantages  to   Vancouver, accruing
from this bold I scheme, according to
the News, would be that the fresh
water would have a tendency to destroy the teredo worm  which now
plays  such   sad   havoc with their
wharves, the barnacles would bo removed from vessels in the harbor,
und the great salmon fishing industry wonld be transferred from the
Fraser to Burrard Inlet,   The Nnos
doesn't say anything about the  entrance to  the  Vancouver harbor
being deepened by the extra volume
of water, so that the   Zambesi  can
come in without soraping its bottom,
but we suppose that is one  of the
objects to be  gained.   We would
suggest that, seeing Vanoouver is so
needy, accoiding to its own account,
in natural advantages, the cheaper
and better plan, instead of diverting
the Frasor from its course to minister  to the  hnngriness of the salt
water terminus, would lie to "give
it up as a bad job," sell thf» site for
an Indian r.ucrvc, nnd-move   right
over to the royal oily, whose natural
advantages, and tlio'eiiorgy. nml (in-
terprisc of its citizens, do not neinl
to be supplemented, either  by  the
adventitious   backing of  tho "big
battalions" or the invention of audi
chimerical and piratical schemes as
the one suggested by our cotemporary.

as tlie author of 'From the Beaten

'Brought to Bay '—titles Instantly
suggesting in style the works'of the
Now York writer."
Our despatches yosterday contained the announcement. that E. P.
Roe, the celebrated American novelist, was dead. He died yesterday
morning at Newburgh, N. Y., at tbe
age of 50 years, having been born
at New Windsor, N.Y., in 1838.
He was a clergyman, and served as
a chaplain in the army during the
American war of 1861-5—the war
of the rebellion. Much of the inspiration of his novels was drawn
from his experiences in that thrilling
drama-tragedy. He wrote many
novels, however, ot a different character, and waa on the whole a very
prolific and popular writer, There
is much that il good, besides, in his
writings, and in the United States
especially, his name has long been a
household word. A writer in the
Critic for June 16, says of tlie now
departed clergyman and author:
"Mr. Edward P. Roe Is to-day the
moat popular author in the United
States. I am not myself a passionate admirer of his writings; but the
fact remains that he hu a great
er following than any other novelist
in the country." To show what
literary charlatanry will resort to we
publish the remainder of the remarks
of the writer in the Critics "Aa
fate will bay* it, there is another
Roe in the field; and his publishers
are hoeing him (so to speak) for all
bis popular namesake is worth.
This other Roe is oho named Edward, but his middle name does not
begin with the letter 'P.' It begins
with an ' IV This interferes a littlo
with the bo«Bg; but his publishers,
Messrs. Laird * Lee, of Ghfoago,
got around thia difficulty by imitating the coven of Edward P. Roe's
immensely, popahir   novels,   and
It is interesting to witness the
universal and, it must be said, laudable craze for computing railways,
in the newer provinces of  the   Dominion,   especially.     Manitoba   is
going to hnvo its   much  hindered
Bed   River   Valley   Railway   put
through some way, so us to have a
competing line to the 0. P. 11., or
"bust."   It is understood that   negotiations are now pending between
the Manitoba government  and the
Northern Pacific R. R. Oo. for the
Bale of the R. R. V. R. outright to
the American company.   The government stipulate that  they   shall
have control of the rates over   the
R.R.V.R., and nlso that the Northern  Pacific   Co. shall guarantee a
certain maximum rate on wheat nnd
certain other products from the province to Duluth.   The rato the government want guaranteed is   much
below that asked by the O.P.R., and
consequently the  government  feel
that they will have redeemed   their
pledges in securing effective competition and low rates for the settler.
It  is  not  known  positively   yet
whether the deal with the Northern
Pacific will be successfully consummated.   The Hudson's Bay railway
scheme is experiencing a  thorough
revival.   Mr. Onderdonk, of British
Columbia notoriety, and other gentlemen of the road,   representing  a
powerful New York syndicate,   are
"talking" to the Manitoba government with a view to entering into
an agreement to build and equip the
road   from  Winnipeg to Hudson's
Bay, and to establish a line of steamers connected with it.   The  people
are ati'ectionately disposed towards
their railways in the prairie province)
and have shown that they are willing to fight for  them, if  need   be.
Indeed, they must have railways tn
develop the   country   and   market
their   produce.     The   Free  Press
(Winnipeg) says:   "The Hudson's
Bay Railway holds as warm a place
in thu hearts of the people to-day ns
evor it did beforo."   The Calgary
Tribune of   Wednesday   last  says:
"A determined effort should be begun without delay to secure for some
reputable  and   capable company a
charter for a railway from Calgary
southward across tho  international
boundary, at the next session of the
Dominion parliament."   Farther on
in the same article our cotemporary
gets excited and uses a "cuss word."
lie intimates that C.P.R influence
may bo brought to bear against  a
charter being obtained for the  proposed rood, or, says onr cotemporary,
men of straw will be put up to get
a  charter,   which  they may iu no
way intend to carry out, and  which
may be only an instrument used to
practically perpetuate the damnable
monopoly which exists in this country; what the C.P.R. cannot, obtain
by act of parliament, tbey  will assuredly  seek  to acquire  through
manipulation.   The  people  should
bo stirring and it is their business
to thwart every scheme, in whatever
guise it may bo put forward, which
hu for its end the  prevention  of
railway competition."   The people
of  Manitoba   and   the Northwest
have had more experience  in  railways than we have  had, and tlieir
views on competing lines, ic., should
not bo lost upon us at the  present
juncture in our railroad affaiis.

tliat a practical herder has heen ou raged to
run a flock, and in tho oarly morning, as
the first gray streaks of dawn appear in tho
eastern slty, he sallies forth to tab! charge
of his woolly flock, who aro juao hoginning
to awake and leavo their bedding placo.
If he is a Mexican lio looks extremely
picturesque in his bright bluo Jacket-: with
its doubtlerow of silver buttonai;which; by
tho way, are hot for uso hut bjIoIv for ornament, for t Mexican nover buttons hia
jacket, else he would hide hiB gaudy calico
shirt.
On his nether limbs aro laggings of loather
or buckskin to protect his logs from tho
sharp thorns through which he will ho
forced to march. Thoso arc kopt in placo
by a crimson, orange or blue sash, ovor
which ia buckled a broad sash full of cartridges.
Ou his head Is tho inevitable sombrero,
with its ornamentation of geld and silver
laco.
If ho is a sensible man, his sorapo will
bo tied over ono shoulder and undor tho
opposite arm, and hu wilt carry a Winchester ritlo and butcher knife.
As the sheep begin to movo off he saunters
slowly along behind tliem, keeping a sharp
lookout for stragglers. Sheep do nut travel
fast, but they keep moving. .
At about meridian tbey will begin to feed*
back toward tbo bodiliiig-placQ, Thoro the
herder will eat his hmnblo dinner of tortillas and chili, washed down by a draught
bf water, if ho is fortunate enough to ho in
tlto vicinity of a .spring or water-hole.
About sundown the sheep will reach their
camp and begin to' select .'beds for tho
night.        .....
Tho herder has a rttdo -.heller near by.
He builds himself a firo and cooks his tortillas; Possibly ho may, havo...killed a quail,
or a jack rabbit during tlio day."- If eo, he
makes a savory soup. ,'Jhen ho'Rinokes hia
cignro and walks uround tlio flock to' aoo
that none aro missing.    .
If all-in well'ho returns to his \c-Mhp arid*,

Ho may havo a good night'h* sleeps and
he mny not. *•* '■■ ■      ■'
A careful herder will bo aroused if a
single sheep moves) ami will immediately
rise up to see whnt in Die mat tor. If a
hear or cougnr or tigcr-wtis lurking about
lie will hunt for the varmint ami either kill
him or frighten him awny.
Abovo all thing!, he must guard against a
Btiuupcde, for it' the timid sheep once get
Btavied thero is no stopping them—tho
herd would becomo scattered-* ninny would
bo lost and thii heriior would bu charged
up with tho missing altaop.
Long beforo daylight he ia up, and hy
tho timo tho ehrqi hpgtn to move ho has
cooked aud oaten his breakfast mul in ready

It aoflma lhat the gontlc'mari in question
regarded liis abnegation of bachelorhood
with a sort of rueful misgiving, which increased aa the days of his liberty waned.
Hie last revolt against tho shackles of matrimony occurred when lie waa sont to procure

Ho sought tlio' city fffliulaFwIio prfaldott

" Ia this whom lioonuea-are kept?" ho
asked,
" Yoa, sir," answered tho clork politely;
" what kind of a licenso do you want ?"'..
" Woll, whnt kind have yon-got'." rejoined
our friend with superhuman gravity..,.
Tho clerk had begun lolooruVon hia visitant us a luuntio, but ho obligingly rattled off

His Importance. /
This Ib told of Long John Wentworth. In
early Chicago thero was R citizen who wantod
to make everybody helievo he owned the
town, and that it could not get along without
him. In '-19 ho concluded to go to California, pick up a bushel of gold and return
to bis former glory, But' he didn't come
back for thirty years, and one pleasant, day
lie wae soon going along tho streets he had
formerly known hunting for survivors, ao to
speak. Thoy wore few and far between and
finally ho mot Ur. Wentworth.
'Why, Mr. Wentworth," ho exclaimed
warmly, " how do you do?" and he grabbed
him bythe hand.       &    ,.
"Aw, Blank," the old gehtlomui drawl od,
as ho shook him in a. limp kind of a way,
" aw, Blank, how dy do? I hadn't -dissed
you.   Havo you been out of town ?"
It was too much for the returned prodigal
and ho took the noxt train back to the Slope.

Birds Killed by Harshness.

We are informed that several parties have, of late, been endeavoring to
obtain compensation from new settlers
for alleged improvements made on
Dominion lands in this distriot, some
time ago, causing considerable annoyance and trouble to the lately arrived
Immigrants and also to the administrators at those lands. We would therefore recommend parties in search of
homesteads to deal entirely, in regard
to the matter, with the Dominion
Lands Department.

■cattle's Caledonian Picnic,
The Caledonian sooiety of Seattle
will hold their annual picnic and
games about the end of August. They
intend chartering the O.P.N. Co, a new
steamer Islander for the occasion, and
will aend it to Westminster the day
before the picnic to take from here tut
members of the society who wish tb
attend. The Westminsterites will be
brought back by the eamo steamer.
This will be a good chance for Ihe
members of these societies to fraternize and shor the kindly feoling that
exists among Scotchmen tho world
over, no matter what ling they may
have chosen to live under.
Tke Bold Bear Hunters.
The trear-hutiliu_ typoa returned ut
a Into hour last night from their expedition across the river. They did not
bring any bears with them, so we suppose there oau't be any living ovor thero
at present. Tho hunters claim to have
aeen several mosquitoes, but couldn't
fot near enough to have a shot at them,
'hoy also affirm to have struck the
fresh tracks of railway aurveyura and
locator., which they followed some distance in hopes of bagging a couplo of
brace, but were unsuccessful. Altogether tho excursion was u failure and
the typos hate returned to their cases
with the avowod intention of giving up
all manner of dissipation and will endeavor in future to earn an honest living.

The annual meeting of the Westminster and Burrard Inlet Telephone Co.
was held yeaterday afternoon in the

were olected for the ensuing year:

Mesalyre k Heath's Minstrels.
A orowdod house welcomed the minstrels last night, on the occasion of
their first appearance here? The many
favorable press notices bestowed upon
this company for its excellence were
fully justified by last evening's performance, and although nothing new
or fresh can be asked at the hands of
Ihe best minstrel company on earth,
yet old acts and orthodox minstrel
business, in the hands of artists, can
be made to assume the shape of novelty, and the pesformunce lust night fully
exemplified that fact. Thia company
is far above the average of such combinations, and compares favorably wilh
the best tbat that prince of minstrel
managers, Jaok Haverly, ever favored
us with. The entertainment throughout waa all the moat fastidious could
desire in (hat direction, It pleased
and amused overy person present, and
the large audience dispersed thoroughly satisfied with the oompany and
themselves.—Virginia City Times.

ln addition to the communications
whioh we publish to-day, we have re-
received one from Dr. Kent, in whieh
he informs us that he haa additional
views with which he will favor us soon.
For the present he is content to say
that" having travelled largely in various parts of the world," he is " within
the safe limits of the truth " in saying
" thot a finer site for a city (than N.
W., of course) it would be diffioult to
find." This is gratifying, and may be
considered final. Having laid this down
as a premise, our correspondent thinks
that " reliable companies will be as
anxious to come to Weatminater ss we
are to have them," aud concludes that
"woshall need all the wisdom and
caution that we can possibly exercise
to act for the very best interests of the
city, now and hereafter." Two or
three ore monopolizing our columns to
such an extent on this subject, that we
must ask our correspondents in the
future nover to write unless they say
something, and, after thoir first communication nt least, to endeavor to
"boil down" their contributions.
There is a parliamentary rule limiting
the number of times one speaker shall
" hold forth" ou a given subject, and
although wc do not wish to enforce
any arbitrary restriction, we would ask
our correspondents to give ua something fresh, and to cut it short, if possible.

Mr. Geo. Henderson arrived from
Nicola last night and will return to the
minee "on Saturday night. His concentrating ntlD at! 'Stiiinp Lake' has been
completed und will start up next week,
as soon as the tramway between the
mine and the mill—850 feet- ia constructed. The mill was taken up from
San Francisco ubout ono month ago,
and it would seem that very little time
haa been lost in putting it in position.
The shaft in the Star mine is down one
hundred feet, with a drift of bottom of
twenty-lire feet, On the Planet) another of Mr. Henderson's olaims, there
is a shaft and drift of 35 feet eaeh. All

A Word .1 Advice.
Questions often siise in a community
afflicting the public welfare, aud the
local press, at least, is expected to refer to suoh questions in--tlie publio interest. The Comikbux aims to do so
on all oceasioM, ind to let no question
pass involving _ny Issue of importance,
but to discuss all publio questions
"without fear, favor, or affection."
Newspapers, liko individuals, do not
always get credit lor what thoy do.
People »ill declare sometimes that a
newspaper has not touched upon a certain question afi'ecting the public interest, and assign as a reason that the
paper is afraid to do ao, or invest and
circulate some other cowardly1 slander,
when the fact is that the leading ool-
umns of tho newspaper in question
have bristled with artioles upon the
subjeet under disoussion. The only
way of accounting for auoh inconsistency on the part of newspaper readers is
on the theory of wilful blindness or inexcusable laziness. As illustrating the
foregoing remarks we have been told
that peoplo on the stroet corners have
complained that The Columbian haa
not called attention to tho injury being
done our fisheries by excetsivo fishing,
insufficient close time, &c. Anyone
taking the trouble to read Tuu Coli'h-
bun of last Tuesday, 17th inst., will
notice a loading article uf over a column on that subjeot. Probably, if we
had printed an illuminated out of a
large aalmon at the head of tho column,
or spread a few fish scales over the
psper, Uie scales might have dropped
from the eyes of some of our renders.
We eall attention to thia particular instance merely for the purpose of illustration. Similar instances are occurring, aud havo occurred, all the time.
Moral—Read yonr local papers, especially, on both sidos. Then, if you
don't see something you want, ask for
it, Odr columns are always open lo
suggestions and communications In the
pnblic intereat.

The Beat-sen Bailway.
Editor Count-rut.—As two parties
are in the field with railway schemes;
neither advantageous to the city. The
0. P. R. is likely to cross the Fraser
river below New Westminster; and the
N. W. _ 3. would only connect the
city by a ferry, whioh oan only be a
alim advantage to New Westminster.
No time like the present when citizens
should open their eyes to the fact; any
offer made leaving out immediate connection by bridge cannot be acceptable
to the oity. A ferry in place of a
bridge, once in operation, no matter
how inconvenient, would not be soon
cast aside snd replaced by a bridge-
on account of the cost, Sir, I have an
idea It would be well for the city to
have nothing todo with either Co.—let
them eaoh carry out their views outside
of the city, and without any aid from
the oity. If N. W. has money and
property to give in bonus, better keep
it for a direct benefit; we all know a
ferry would be anything but satisfactory for many reasons, and if the city
would, under certain conditions, accept a fern, until replaced by a bridge,
why not build a traffio bridge, and
owned by the city. An Iron pontoon
bridge, to suit all purposes and give
value for cost might be built for one-
third the cost of a railway bridgo and
be a free opon highway to the eity for
all southern travel, Farmers would
have a direct benefit, and New Westminster also. The railway is a very
uncertain benefit, depending mostly
on the goodwill of the owners. Let
New Westminster in this instance be
independent of any railway oompany.
Build our own bridge, and if we oan
not see our way clear wait for better
terms u we cannot lose anything by
so doing.
Yours truly,
Jons E. Lord.

Editob Columbia!!.—Permit me to
correct the editor of the Vanoouver
Newt with respect to his mistake as to
Ihe meaning of the following: "Vancouver, according to the Newt, is also
in trouble about it, and if if dare,
would also be offering a big bonus for
a share ih this rich plum pudding from
the aouth, but its hands are lull, it has
enough to do tn stagger under it* pies-
ent obligations, It is beginning to
see that its outlook under those cold
mountains uf the north, _c, io." In
the above quotation, from my communication in THI Columbia- of the 18th
inst, "according to the Newt" is parenthetic. "Vanoouver" is the principal noun, to whieh all the its in the
sentence refer. If I had said the Item
was In trouble tbe editor would have
had just eause to take exception, as he
dues in his issue of the 20th. I am
afraid he is wetting a little rusty in
syntax; he had better consult "Lindley Murray" ocemrionally. Grammatical
mistakes are sometimes very fatal.
Anyone who will take the trouble tu
peruse the News' editorial of the 17th
inst. will be convinced that I had good
grounds for saying that Vancouver
freople (tiecofding lo the News) were a
ittle anxious about our Southern Railway, and that the editor himself wns a
little uneasy about the matter; but
auoh anxiety is quito natural in these,
days of feverish competition; evdn
some of our own citizens betray a little of that spirit of what 1 call "
neas: John E. Lord, in a late
nidation to Tne Columbia* expressed
very great fears that "Weetmlneter
would be foreed to share ita business
with many other places." It is a pity
that these people, that are so muoh
afraid of their neighbors'prosperity,
oould uot get a "Juan Fernandez"
somewhere, and be monarch of all
their short sightedness could aurveyj
then they could finish their journey
alone and be out of humanity's reaoh,
