NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Over 700 millions of passenger!
were cirried on tlie railways ol th.
united kingdom in 1887, and of
these only 25 were killed, and the
whole of this. 25 in one accident,
which wai due to tho grow carelessness of an eugilieei, , Uiiregard ol
the comfort aud safety of employees,
however, itill disgraces British
railway luanageinnnt, ' Over 400
railway Bcrvanta-.w»r* killed during
the year, and over 8,000 injured—
many of the accident, being due to
the feci that the men ken worn
out with overwork.
n Some sarcastic comments 'are
made in old country papers about a
couple" of marriages among note:
worthy people which' have recently
occurred there. In one case a college professor of over 7.0 married a
"sweet girl gmdiute" of barely 20.
She was distinguished for ability
in her college course, and one editor
quotes her marriage as a case of
"much learning and little sense."
The other oase is that of a dowager
duchess, , alio over 70, who has
become the blushing bride of a young
gentleman of 241 People will talk'

The "ground and lofty tumbling"
and sky-soraping antics in matter!
matrimonial, indulged In by our
friends "baok east" ire. .musing, if
not edifying. One day we have a
story of a young man who i faili to
be present itt. bis own wedding, finding out at the lait movement that
he is not prepared to "brace up" to
the new and untried experiences
into which matrimony will usher
him   OcoaaioaaJjy^Jiij^tjm will

lion of the gay Lothario, the min,
liter of custom,, with the "(air, fat
and forty'' vidder of Kapanee ia
itill green In the memoriei of at
least that respectable but ill-used
lady, and her friendi, even if the
honorable minister is seeking lethe
fin a weitern jaunt. But; perhaps,
the Halifax young lady "takes Ihe
bun",over all competitor!. It is
related of her that she made a
mistake about th. date of her marriage and wu busily engaged iu hlr.
household duties, while her intended
bridegroom was waiting for her at
the altar. An exchange deplores
that such n laps, of memory on so,
important an occasion by one of the
j fair sex ihould be posiiblc, and is
hoping that it may turn' out that
the too ardent bridegroom made, the
mistake of the dayMn short, was
"too previous,"'
The subjoined paragraph from an
Edinburgh piper ii reoommended to
those who imagine that thi. continent haa a monopoly of lurid political writing;—Mr. Buckle, the editor
of the Times, il a privileged person.
80 long as he confine, hii insults
and slandera to tho Irish memben
of Parliament, he is permitted to
indulge in overy apeciei of blackguardism with perfect impunity.
But on Wednesday morning he wai
•illy enough to stop beyond thii
prudent limit, and in an article, ,'ai
coarse as only he could write, he
committed . breach of privilege of
the House of Commons byattacking
tho Liberal Party, and charging
thciri with blackguardism. Mr.
Labouchere promptly brought him
lo bonk, and even his friend, Mr.
(ioEctii'ii, bad to confess for once his
champion hud gone too far, But
the Chancellor of the Exchequer at
the same time made a pathetic
appeal to Mr, Gladstone not to press
the matter, and the Liberal lender,
as magnanimous aa ever, advised
hii side to pan it over, This is
like Mr. Gladstone. It il simply
one more illustration of the habitual
impartiality of the man. In tlio
old days of fulsome flattery, when
the times was daily licking his
boots in order to gain a peerage for
its proprietor, Mr. Gladstone quietly
ignored the toadyism, and refused
lo throw away tho honor; und nnw
when the whole gang of literary
lions and forgers are combined to
resent with every scurrilous weapon
thil slight upon .their "master, tlie
ex-Premier still treats them with
goodimtured contempt, snd refuses
to crush the toad even when it hai
crawled beneath hii keel,

American newspapers have referred
lately to a new invention by one
William Tirumis, which, if successful, will | revolutionize motive
power. , The inventor is an unpretentious English mechanic, residing
in Pittsburg, Pa., who says he has
invented a machine by which untold mptive power can be stored or
used without the expenditure of
fuel. The story goes that he has
been engaged for years in perfecting
the invention, and is now negotiating with the governments of England, Bussia and the United States
for the sale of the right, to use his
discovtry, which, if, after examination, it proves to be what he assert*, will revolutionise the motive
power of the world. He siys he is
able with hii contrivance to create
. preuure of 20,000 pounds per
, scjuak inoh—more then lulncient to
prwp-i the hugut ocean steamer
.froat or to move eighty laden freight
CHI' in one train. The machine
seemi to be limply an air oompres-
sor of tie simplest sort It consists of
one small cylinder (six horso power),
with a balance weight of seventy-
five pounds, which runs the entire
apparatus; another small cylinder,
fiv. inohei disiroeter, with seven'
inch., stroke, oompreues the air into thw tank from 'Which; the power is
utilized. ' Under the .piston plate
the inventor has placed two layers
of bare containing eleven different
minerals, ihe mignetic influence. of
which is the secret of the inventor.
The advutages he claims are dura-
lrilityr«W9ray.andaimplioity. Ex-
pertsh.vft txtmiud the machine
and pronouno. it a luccess. In
ubmitting his.design to the government, named, Mr. Timmii asserts
that.the.pheumitio generator can
not only be applied to war vessels as
a motor, but eu he nsed as a defense against hostile attacks by
means of air chambers behind the
armor plating.

Suoh wai the fate of Sir John Rose,

The European situation is becoming somewhat interesting. It is
said to be the unexpected that always happona After tho fraternal
greetings, the embracing!, the. pro-
tottationi of eternal friendship, between the Emperor William and the
Czar, it was surely the last thing
that might have been expected that
bad blood would have arisen so soon
between tho Teuton and the Muscovite. But such is tho case. Tlie Russian press hu been allowed to raise
the question bt Denmark's claims
in Schleswig-Holstcin, German territory, and the young emperor, so
lately the honored and gushing guest
of the Czar, fires up instantly and
retorts in red-hot speeches bidding
defiance to all who would attack
Germany's right to any territory
which it now holds. While his
blood was up the young German
"war lord" made another disclosure
of his warlike,character and look a
fling at his traditional foe, the
French, giving them to understand,
in the most unmistakable terms,
that if they " wanted.same too.1" all
they had to do wu to knock a chip
off the imperial shoulder—in other
words to shew the slightest inclination of attempting.to regain' their
lost province, of Alsace-Lorraine.
With a commendable self-repression
tho French press and people hove
restrained the.expressions natural to
an impulsive and ehivalric race on.
having defiance thus hurled in their
teeth by the warlike head of a traditionally hostile power. The experience of tho last two years, on
their Own word, has taught them
the wisdom of meeting the calculated
menaces of. their enemies with. coolness. They know their .policy: at
present is to play a waiting game
and show no inclination to be drawn
into a quarrel. Most of the Paris
papers content themselves with publishing tho Emperor's Frankfort
speech with little or no comment."
The National says: "Ourdutyiis
to answer this violent language by
coolness, but we may remind this
young prince that a countryman
of our own once said: 'Not an ounce
of our sod nor one stone of our fortress shall- We surrender.' As it happens his hope and trust was disappointed," The Inlransiqant, usually
«> intemperate, oply . says: " Tni.
clearly means that conciliation i.
out of the question, Now more
than ever we must watch and get
ready," Meanwhile young William
is "raising Gain," figuratively, in
the "faderland." Generals Von
Capriva and Von Moltke, in command of the navy and army respectively, have been retired from the
service, for being "too. slow," it is
whispered, for the: mercurial young
soldier-emperor, and their places
filled by younger .men. The young
kaiser, too, is testing the patience
and tho metal of his troops in one
way and another. The other day,
after reviewing some of his troops he
remarked: "My lads, if you did no
better than thil in real war, you
would all by now be sausage meat."
A few days afterward he surprised
the Potsdam husnre and chasseurs
by having an alarm sounded at four
o'clock in the morning. All the
soldiers who. showed the slightest remissness were severely reprimanded
and several officers were placed under arrest. If the navy and army
are hot placed upon a chain-lightning
war footing it will evidently not be
the fault of the latest of the Hohen-
zollerns. Now that the star of
Boulanger, the French agitator and
wire-manipulator, is again in the ascendant, it is just possible that the
"war dogs" of Edrope,who. are straining so at the leash, may be allowed
the diversion of getting into eaoh
other's wool for a season.

a few minutes the entire building wai
in dinger of being destroyed, along
with the engine ind other machinery
in it. A number of men were

ii doubtful if "their eflsrti would hove
been', successful except for the assistance given by Mr. Elson and his ion,
who were armed with hand' force
pumps, and finally tuoceeded in getting
the fire under control. It ia fortunate
the building and machinery were

that the law waa at fault in discriminating againat them. However, if

that he believed Kinnear might havo

that he apeak, English remarkably

The president of the Weitminiter-
Southern Railway, Mr. Douglas, haa
received plans for the terminal depot
building! to be erected on Lytton
Square, and alio for the passenger
homo and hotel to be erected at Browa-

The Westminster depot, to be erected
on Lytton aquare, ia to be of brick, and
meuure, on the ground ulan 105 feet
long by 35 feet wide, i, two
stories high with a mansard roof;
height of walla 32 feet; from plinth
to ridge ia 50 feet, and to top of central tower on Columbia itreot 72 feet.
On the ground floor are the usual offices, baggage, and waiting rooms, with
other convenience!. Ou the first floor
are 10 diilinct apartments for tho varioui office! connected with luch an establishment, besides main a'airway
landing arid passage.. Tho attic i,
eight feot high in the cloar. An eight-
foot wide verandah, wilh projecting
roof, extendi on the water' mini and
on the east Bide of the building, the
whole il to be built of brick, and from
the genoral design would appear to be
a first-class modern railway depot.
The plani for the "pauenger house
and hotel" to be -erected at Brownsville form three aide, of a parallelogram. The main building, running
north and south, ia, on the plan, 134
ft. 0 ini. long by 27 feet wide; two
itories and a manaard, with a center
tower over the front (eastern) entrance,
08 feet high; from bale to top of finial,
•nd two end mansard towers. 54 feot
high. Tho louth wing, whioh il one
atory with a mansard roof, is 62 feet
deep by 38 feet wide, and is intended
for a dining room. The north wing,
facing the river, ia 66 feet deep by 23
feet wide, two stories, and ii intended
for kitchen, with all tbe .necessary
adjunct!,, on the ground floor. Between the two wingi and in rear of
th. main building is a covered and
encloied puBige way between the
kitchen and dining room, containing
pantries, &o. The upper floors are
deiigned for the accommodation of the
officers. An open courtyard, 56x60
feet, facing the weit, enclosed on three
lides, is to contain a large water cistern for the use of the building, which
ii to.be built of wood, with a ruitio
finish outiide. This, though not u
substantial looking as the brick depot
on Lytton square, will have a ratnor
superior artistic .ppearsneo and will
form a first-class pauenger houso and

Victoria, B. C.Aug. 23,1888.
To Robxbt Dickinson, Esq., Mayor of
New Westminster:
Sir, Your communication, addressed to
the Hon. the Chief Commissioner of
Lands and Works, dated August 16th,
1888, relative to the extension of the
limits of the -New Westminster Munici-
Eility to. the south side of the Fraser
Ivor so as to include a certain portion
the Municipality of Surrey, haa been
referred to thia department.
I beg to atate that on the occasion of
the previous application, Mr. Bole, Q.C.,
on behalf of the New Westminster Corporation, attended the members of tlie
Executive and ably supported tho application; and, after. Mr. Bole had retired,
the Executive concluded tho application
mut he refused on the ground thit there
wu no power in the Lieutenant-Governor-'
in-Council to authorize the contracting
of the limits of .the Surrey Municipality
'except for police purpose., an objection
that wu pointed out to Mr. Bole during
the discussion ud to which I believe
there is no answer.       ''    '.
I verbally communicated the refusal to
Mr. Bole ontthe following morning.
It Ib only right to say that the Executive felt regret at* their Inability to accede to the\applicati6n, a regret-which
wu shared in by every minister, every
one of whom during the discussion, with
Mr. Bole, expressed their thorough willingness and d'llre to grant tho application if it were within the power of the
government.-.
We wish indeed that your renewed
application could be acceded to, but the
objection remain! u stated above, and I
have respectfully to info .-,n yon that the
application cannot be granted,
1 have the honor to be, Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
Alex. E. B. Davik,
Attorney-General.
