NOTES AND COMMENTS.
In tbe suit for libel brought by
Attorney-General Martin againit
Acton Burrows, of the Winnipeg
Call, the preliminary examination
has resulted in tbe committment of
tbe defendant for trial at the assize
court, Premier Greenway haa also
instituted suits for criminal libel
against Mr, F, Luxton of the Free
Brest, and Mr. Burrows.
An exchange sayi:—One of the
first queitiona whioh Lord Lane-
downe will have to grapple with
when he assumes the viceroyalty of
India will be to decide whether tho
province of Seinde ia to remain
under the Bombay presidency or be
attached to the Funjaub. A correspondent says:—"It ia mainly i a
question of military administration,
the chief argument in favor of the
transfer being that all the troops
along tbe north western frontier of
India would then be under the commander-in-chief of India, in place
of partly under him and partly
under tho Bombay commander-in-
chief." That it ii no light
matter is evident when we conaider
that the district has a population of
two million and an area of 54,000
square miles. Seinde was formed
into a British commissionership in
1843, after one of the brilliant victories of Sir Charles Napier over
the Ameer.
Speaking of the late manipulations of the Chicago wheat market
the N, Y. Graphic says: It ought to
be a criminal offence to "corner"
wheat as "Old Hutch" of Chicago bas
done. It ia very strange that the
law, ^cUrteslto 'rlgulfteS>*.*ge
corporations so that they may not
rob the general publio, should be
powerless in the case of individuals
who illegitimately control the markets for the necessaries of life. It
is the rankest villany.: It is the
meanest ot all ''trusts," or monopolies, for it proposes no benefit to the
public, tha "Old Hutches" meaning
in every case to enrich themaelvea
within a few days through a atate
of things as unnatural and abominable aa that which orders a man to
hold up his hands that a thief may
go through his pocket! without
danger to himself, There ought to
be statesmanship  enough in  this
There is apparently no limit to
newspaper "enterprise" these days.
The latest illustration is found in
the Chicago Tribune, which, in the
absence of some better sensation,
employed two female reporters to
enter the ranks of the salvation
army and "write up" the workings
of that institution, These girls
made profession of conversion,
donned the uniform, walked the
streets, lived at army headquarters,
and were as hypocritical as it ia
possible for mortals to be. Their
experiences are in "to be continued"
articles, profusely illustrated; but
tbey are not muoh of an exposure.
On the contrary, while sneering
allusions are made to the methods
of the army, and to the bad grammar spokon by some of ita adherents, testimony is borne to the
faithfulness, sincerity and teal of
the officers, while their treatment of
the new "recruits" seems to have
been of the kindliest possible description.
A Chicago press correspondent
snys, recently:—Five yean of high
licenie have we now bad in Chicago,
and, while It is A success as a revenue measure, it ia an undisguised
failure as a temperance measure.
It in no way checks the consumption of intoxicating liquon as a beverage, nor does it in the least degree
lessen the evils or crime from such
use. It may be true that in a city
liko Chicago the number of saloons
may be roducod by a few hundred,
but such a reduction from nu aggregate of several thousand is scarce
noticeable. Drunkenness and the
petty, ns well as the grave, crimes
resulting therefrom, receive no
check from high license, nnd to
urge it as a temperance measure or
anti-saloon expedient is to attempt
to commit a fraud on the community. Nor does high license give
more decont saloons, if such plnoes
can claim any decency. The dives
and dens, the barrel-houses and
thieves' resorts, are as bad and frequent in the city to-day, after five
yean of high licenie, ai they ever
were. Call high licenie what it is,
an easy way to raise a revenue
from vice, but let thero be an end of
endorsing it as a temperance or a
reform measure.

HU riENELI, COMMISSION.
Lomkw, Oct. 24.- Sir R. E. Webster accused Mr, Parnell of criminality
in hii knowledge of the use of vast
sums of money by the league foi' criminal purpoie. ■ According to tho Free-
man's JmuijaJ tlie tcosipli of. tlio league
from Oct.,' 1879, to Oct., 1881, were
£144,890, only £44,877 of which wai
accounted for. Didn't Parnell know
how the remainder waa used ? Had it
been so expended that no open statement of ita dispotition could be given ?
If the league were a constitutional concern why were it! booki concealed 1
Some of the items of the accounts of
tho league, he aaid, bad been traced,
disclosing Mr. Parnell'i relation with
murderer! and assassins. For instance
the £100 oheque which was sent to
Byrne, and the £36 cheque sent to
Quinn. Sir B. E. Webster was proceeding to discuss the lupport received
by the Parnellitea from the Irish
World, when tho hour for adjournment arrived.
The Parnellites are elated over the
admission of tbe Times' lolicitors that
their client ii in poitession of a bundle
of letten admittedly ipurious, which
were purchased in America, and from
thii point of view it is argued that if
the letten are not all genuine the
paper may have been deceived in the
matter of the other documents upon
whioh its caie is bated.
FATHEP. KENNEDY EELEA8ED.
Cork, Oct, 24.—Father Kennedy,

having ..to sond.out; of  the  city
and. proyinoo   to, replace   broken
•lid worn out parts of machinery, as
really heavy work cannot  be done
short of San Francisco.   The money,
too, that is sent out of the  country
in this  way  is no inconsiderable
item; and in the coune of a year or
two, when the sawmill   industries
of the city will have been more than
trebled by tbe addition of the Ross-
McLaren mills and otber prospective
establishments—with the consequent
increase ol steam craft and tho impetus accruing to other manufacturing  industries—the   amount  that
would  have  to be paid out of the
city and out of the province for repairs to old, and for new, machinery
would unnecessarily . handicap  our
manufacturing industries,   besides
proving a  serious drain upon this
city and the country at large.    But
this is only the negative side of the
question.     A  $300,000   foundry,
with machine and boiler shops, would
give employment, direotly,   to   400
men,   Such  a  foundry would  be
complete in every respect, and competent to do any possible work required in the direction already outlined, . besides supplying  the  constantly increasing demand for mining machinery—a. branch of industry that bide fair in the near future
to assume dimensions  hitherto   un-
approached.   Ship-building, too—an
industry almost certain to be prosecuted here before long—requires  a
large amount of iron work, and this
the foundry would also supply, as
well a* repairs to the fleet of  seagoing lumber and other vessels which
wiU soon throng our harbor at  all
•essqns.   'Che canneries, alio, would
have all their wants in the tnaohin
err line met by such a foundry as
we have , mentioned.   Recognizing
theopen field—it may bo said to be
'•Wf yawning—which Westminster
otTen for a foundry of  the dimensions and  capacity  alluded  to, a
practical eastern man has signified
his readiness to subscribe liberally to
the stock of the proposed  foundry
and luperintend its establishment.
It has been estimated that such a
foundry as is required would demand
a capital atock of (300,000.   A certain amount of eastern capital would
be put into the scheme. It has been
suggested that the, New Westminster  &  _t___e Railway Oo. should
take stock in the enterprise to the
extent, at least, of the bonus of $75,-
000 given them by this oity for  a
foundry and workshops, thus  turning their capital and work into the
larger undertaking—nn arrangement
which would benefit all parties, and
to which there could,   consequently,
be no objection, . The remainder of
the capital required, it is surmised,
would, be ipfadily subscribed by   the
viiripus^sawmilljcompanjes and otber
manu/ai)tur«r»,,,the, whole  scheme
beiiigipUcedupon, tho  basis   of  a
joint atock company.   It would  be
in the interest of the city   to  deal
liberally with this enterprise in the
way of furnishing a proper site, in
exemption   from   taxation,  or   in
other  ways.   Considering  all   our
circumstances, and, prospects,   the
importance of this foundry scheme,
ai intimately related .to the  welfare
of the oity, is only equalled: by  the
expediency and   the necessity   for
imnwdiate action in the matter.   It
is by. properly appreciating the situation and aeizing such opportunities
as this thtt a city builds surely and
solidly, laying foundations for future greatness,   there is a tide, ic,
that taken at the ebb flows  on  to
fortune.   This is fully as true in tbe
experience el cities as of men.   The
present ia a critical—a formative—
period in the history of   British Columbia.   The destinies of the   vari-
o*. aba and districts are shaping

with feelings of satisfaction. Here-
after, says the Winnipeg Commercial,
through trains will leave Winnipeg
daily for St Paul at 9:05 in the
morning nnd will arrive at Winnipeg at .1:80 o'clock in the afternoon. \ The trip between thn two
points will be made in 221 houn.
Tho passenger fare will be' $14.40,
the samo as the St. Paul anil Manitoba road, but a second class fare
for $11:50, not obtainable on the
other road, wilt be given. A freight
tariff will shortly be issued giving
rates to all points in the east, over
the Northern Pacific and connections, via Duluth and Chicago; also
to and from Pacific coast points.
After long waiting and auitating,
an independent outlet for Manitoba
has been secured, but not without
considerable sacrifice by tlio province, It is to be hoped tlmt the
new route will prove all that is
expected of it, and that it will be in
fact as in name, a competing line.
There has been already some disposition to criticise the new road, more
particularly in regard to its apparent tardiness in cutting rates, but
the general sentiment is to suspend
judgment until the management get
their affaire into regular running order. When this is accomplished it
is to be hoped that the policy of the
road will prove satisfactory to the
people of Manitoba, who have liberally aided the enterprise and pcr-
severingly surmounted so many vexatious obstacles to secure this southern connection. We bespeak for
them the sympathies and best wishes
of British Columbians generally.

A matter calling forth more interest, as well as sympathy in Manitoba railway affairs just now, is the
stubborn and cantankerous obstruction by the C.P.R. of construction
on the Portage la Prairie extension
of the Northern Pacific and Manitoba system. A O.P.R. locomotive
was placed across the track some
days ago, where it was desired to
make the crossing, and a guard stationed to prevent its removal by the
tracklayers of the Portage extension.
Van Horne also applied for an injunction to the supreme court of
Manitoba, and an interim injunction
waa granted restraining the Portage
extension from crossing tho O.P.R.
track accordingly, Monday the in
junction case was argued, and, according to our despatches yesterday,
judgment was given against the 0.
P. R., who it is said, further, will
not accept the decision of the courts,
but will resist the crossing by force.
This unwarrantable proceeding, added to the hostility which has already been aroused by the attitude
and actions of the O.P.R. in this
matter, is almost certain to precipitate trouble immediately. The
tracklayen on the Portage extension
are right up to the O.P.R. obstructions, and, having now the decision
of the courts at their bock, the determined Manitobans will be very
likely to sweep all obstacles that
bar their progress out of the way.
Such, indeed, would appear to be
the intention, according to our despatches lust night, which stated that
the attorney-general had issued a
call for special constables to clear
the track to-day. The Manitoba
people are conscious of being in the
right in this matter. They argue,
very properly, that, as the 0. P. R.
was paid to forgo ito monopoly
rights, the present policy of the
company is in violation of tbe spirit
of the agreement for the removal of
the monopoly. The action of the
O.P.R. in this affair is both reprehensible and foolish, as the province,
in the very nature of the case, must,
should, and will have its rights
eventually, which in this case, we
believe, will mean almost immediately. We sincerely hope there may be
no actual violence, leading perhaps
to bloodshed; but, if there should be,
the O.P.R. will find it difficult to
shift the responsibility for such a
lamentable result from their own
shoulders,
It IS  A  REMARKABLE   FACT   that Dr.
Thomu Eclectric Oil is as good for internal as external use. Por disease of the
lungs and throat, and for rheumatism,
neuralgia, crick in tlio back, wounds and
sores, it is the best known remedy, and
much trouble in saved by having it al-

It is one of those airs of the people,
one of those rude and homely, lively,
quick and deviliili fantasies of the common people, that "put life and mettle
in onr heela."
"Naeoatillion, brent new frae
Fran<)*,''"li0.tiririrHng air from Ger-
many, nor Mt iport of an Italian fiddler,
it ia ono of those rollicking times of the
baokwoodi that grow somewhere in the
baokwoodi yean ago. Its origin is lost
in th. miiti of antiquity. It is probably .older than the .common law, aa
old as custom, hoarier than manners,
Suoh aim, with varying names aud
varied strains, are like the ballads, the
proverbi, and the inyingi of the people.
They may be tracked back,aud back
until the track is loot.
Origin or author thoy hnvo never had,
They havo been harped and blown and
fiddled, thrummed and dunned by the
age*. Antiquarians have leiu'cked diligently for author and origin for the
ballads and for the saw!, proverbs, and
sayings of tho people.
The aearch has only established that
these alwayi wero just aa they are, with
minor variation!.

"OldGronnyi" "Bye-Straw," "Forked
Deer," "Leathor Breeches," "Old Zip
Coon," "Natchez-undor-the-Hill," "hilly in the Low Grounds," and lmu-
dredrof other popular country fiddler
nira*   '■
Their names hav* changed and their
straine have been varied, but they may
be heard fiddled ont and dauced out tha
world over. Thoy might have been
heard centuries ago.
Sherman thought the air to "Marching Through Georgia" a war composition, but he heard a blind fiddler fiddling it in Edinburgh.
Harry McOarthy, "the Arkansas
(.oinodian," gave,, -tho "Bonnie Blue
VI.I?" to tho Sonth, but the air is
old'as the hills. The air sung to Jim
Randall's "Maryland, My Maryland,"
ty vith age.

is gray with age.
The airs of I     ,    .      ..
fay, quick aud dovilish, in the minor
ey, in tho major mode, pathetic or
.vill
sombre, or soft and languishing with
love and tears, and tho ballads of the
people and tlie sayings of the peoplo are
equally without author or origin.
They go with the traditions. Perhaps
they came from Adam, from before the
fall. "The Arkansas Travelor" is ono
of these.

A girl of 7 years, employed in tending
cattle, slept in an apartment, next to
one occupied by an itinerant fiddler,
a musician of considerable skill, who
frequently spent the night in performing pieces of a refined description.
She fell ill, was taker., oar. of by »
lady aud eventually became her servant. Some yean elapsed, and tho
family woro often surprised to hear
music during the night
At length the, sound was traced to
tho sleeping room of the girl, who, fast
asleep, was warbling in a manner exactly resembling the sweetott tone* of
a small violin.
It was found that after being two
hours in bed ih. became restless, ind
began to nuite^heaiM; then ut-
taring noiaeb'feiniibling the tuning of
a violin, ahe dashed off, after some
prelude, Into elaborat* pieces of music,
which she performed la . clear and
accurate manner.
-A year or two passed away, and ihe
began to vary her performance by imitating th* loundi of an old piano in
the house, the singing of the inmates,
and further on aha began to discourse on a variety! of topics.
Th* justness .and. troth of her re.
marks on all. aubjeeta excited th.
utmost astonishment in those who were
acquainted with her limited means of
acquiring information.
She was known to conjugate correctly
Latin verbs, and to speak aav.nl len-
fences in French.
During paroiyima it was almost impossible to watt her, ud when her
eyelid* were raised, and a candle
brought near hop ey*, ahe seemed in-
aeniible to light.
About 16 she began to obierve those
who were in th* apartment, and an.
awered quettion* put to her with aa-
toniihing acuteneas. Thia affection
went on for ten or eleven yean.
She wat,-wham awake, a dull, awkward girl, alow in receiving.anykind
of initruotion, without any turn for
musio, or apparently any recollection of
whatpaaied in her. deep.—[Contemporary Beview.

D. L. Moody, the great prcuclior,

■o. One of Chicago1! wealthy men
paya all his salary and expemei, and
all that tho citiei and town! in whioh
he preaches are expootod to do i. to
provide a suitable building and the
congregations. Moody does not receive a cent of the collections or sub-
■oriptioni. If there il a balance on
hand after all expemei in connection
with the meeting! are paid, it is generally sent by a committee of tho citizens to one of the numerous homes
founded by him. We make thii explanation because a number nf people
attribute to Moody, and othen engaged in the same work, mercenary
and other unworthy motive! aa being

The Squamlsb Small-Fox.
In speaking of the imall-pox oaaei
among the Indian! on the Squamith
River, Mr. P. MoTiernan, Indian
agent, says the first report that the
disease was contracted in Washington
Territory turns out to be incorrect.
The exact facts are these:—An Indian
woman from the Squamish founds
bed and some bedding floating in the
water underneath the Sunnyiide Hotel, Vancouver, and pickod them up
and took them home. Hor two children were given the bedding to sleep
on, and in a week or ten days afterward! the disease broke out, both of
them being attacked. It is almoit
certain that the original ownen of the
bedding could tell a tale of imall-pox
if they were io disposed. Mr. MoTiernan has gone over to Vancouver'
to lend up supplies to the Indians.
When the word of the disease was reported to the Indian department at
Ottawa Mr. Dewdney telegraphed instruction! to Mr. MoTiernan to take all
itepi neceuary for keeping it in hand.
Thia Mr. MoTiernan has done and
there ii not any liklihood of the amall-
pox spreading to the neighboring Indian!.

Hor: John Robton, provincial tec-
rotary, was in the city to-day and wai
interviewed by a representative of The
Columbian regarding the new government building, to be oreoted in Weitmimter. Mr. Kobsnn aaid it had been
decided to have plans prepared imme-
diatly and tho tender would be lot before tho end of tho year. The plans
will probably he prepared hy a looal
architect. The condition! of Ihe contract will oall for building operation!
to be commenced as early next year at
the weather will permit. Speaking of
the grant of land on Lulu Ialand,
asked for by the cily for railway purposes, the Hon. Mr. Rohson laid the
government could not make the grant
without special legislation on the subject, but there ia every reason to believe the matter will bo arranged to
the eatiafaction of the people of Weitmimter at the next eitting of the
home. The hon. gentleman felt certain
the government wonld put no obstacle
in the way of the land being granted.
Regarding the small-pox he mid the
government would take prompt meai-
urea at any time to prevent the spread
of the disease. The Dominion authorities will attend to any cases among the
Indiam. The new city charter, Mr.
Robson said, would be proclaimed by
the exeoutive at the wish of the city
council.

The iteamer Dunsmuir, Capt. Rog-
en, arrived in port laat night from
Esquimalt, having made a quicker pas-
sago than ever before. The run from
Eiquiranlt to Ladners was made in 6
houn 46 minutei, which ii fait time
fpr any vessel considering a heavy
wind wm blowing at tho time and the
wa wai running high. The Duntmuir
made a trial trip on Monday afternoon,
aeveral gentlemen being aboard. The
iteamer under the new improvement!
gave unqualified tatiifnction, making
ten milei per hour easily at 146 revolutions per minute. The engines are
compound tandem with twin screw,
and worked splendidly throughout the
trip. They were manufactured by the
Albion Iron Works, Victoria. The
deck, bulwarks, upper works and rigging are oil new, and the iteamer pre-
lent! a trim and seaworthy appearance.
The interior arrangements are not all
finiihed yet but will be within a few
weeka. A handsome little ladi.,' cabin
ii provided on the main deck, utern of
the engine room. It ii nicely painted
and oarputted and will be furniihed

A Market At CrakherHtt.
It ii not generally known that cranberries grow abundantly in Britiih
Columbia. Tho Weitmimter Columbian lay!: "The crauherry season is
now in full blast and Indian!
and Chinamen are making good
wagei in picking them. Up to
date W. H. Vianen haipurohaied 100
barrels and he expect, thii number will
be tncreued by 300 barrel! before the
lesson ii over," There would be a
good market on thia lide of the mountains for cranberries, if the enterprising Columbian! will go into the business of shipping them in this direotion.
Owing to tbe scarcity of fruit here,
cranberries are largely used in tho
winter season in Manitoba and the
territories, and with our diet, largely
of meat, they furnish an excellent
relish. Cranberries aro usually worth
from $9 to 812 per barrel in Winni-
peg.— Winnipeg Commercial.

Submerged I. Pitch.
Yesterday afternoon about 4 o'clock
three employees of the Albion Iron
Worki Go. met with a novel and de-
cidely disagreeable experience, while
at work in the foundary yard. The
men were standing on a board over a
vat of asphalt, a composition into whioh
the wnter-pipei are dipped, when the
board broke and they took a plunge
into the pitchy content! of the vnt.
Fortunately the aiphalt wai not hot
and the men were immediately rescued in no way injured by their involuntary bath, although mournfully
black from head to foot. Tho wont
of it ii, the aaphalt is made to stick
and little abort of a millet and chiiel
•ill get it oE Ai the latter treatment of the, cue il hardly in order,
the probability ii that the men will be
compelled to poie ai reipectable "oul-
lud puitona" unlit the coating wean
off. The hair, retaining moat of the
pitchy substance, will have to come
off and the men will, after a ahaving
process, look like handsome Ethiopians
with bald, white heads. The victims
of the accident are laid up to-day,
while eyerything that can be, ia being
done to remove their shells.—Colonist.
THE COAST FISHERIES.
Ret.ni .1 Capi. Grant Irom Ihe Northern
\Talers....Pxeelle.l Elsbl.aGro.nda
Ditcovered.
Capt. C. D. Grant, of the schooner
Oriel, hai relumed to Weitmimter
from a voyage of ditcovery among the
Northern waten. Tho Oriel loft Westminster on August Sth and sailed direct to Cape Scott, the extreme northwest point of Vancouver Iiland. She
■ailed thence ,tq Hope It|»ud, iwhioh
Iiu a ihort distance off the1 mainland.
Here an excellent harbor was found
and Capt. Grant commenced hii exploration! and wai luoky enough to
find a good halibut bank, but not being
fitted out with the proper gear could
not do much fishing. In Hardy Bay,
near Fort Rupert, silver ulmon were
found in abundance and took tho ipoon
bait ui ferociously at do the pike.
Oapt. Grant stayed in Hardy Bay for
two weeki and in that time caught and
ulted a doxen barrel! of ulmon. All
the fiih were caught with a ipoon bait.
Bull harbor wm the next point explored and halibut wu found in paying
numbers. The whole crew of the
Oriel numbered but 2 men and a boy,
which made the tithing necessarily
•low, u with such a small crew only a
limited number of jr.wlt .could be
manned. After leaving-Ball Harbor
two weeka were ipent in prospecting
the neighboring waten with varying
luccess. Capt Grant had been informed that there wai no halibut at
Nawitta Bar, but the Indiana uy the
fishing ii good when the weather ia
favorable. Salmon an alio numeroui
near the bar and can be captured eaiily
with a troll. Clou to Hope Iiland
Capt. Grant ditcovered a magnificent
halibut bank in 65 fathoma of water,
but not beiug prepared for inch deep
fishing, and the schooner*! hawaer only
being 46 fathomi long, he wu obliged
to employ Indian! to prospect the
ground. The first day's work, for two
canoes, win 26 fine fish, running from
26 lo 90 Ibi. in weight each. Thii
convinced Capt. Grant that he had
atruck fiih at lait and the prospecting
was continued. The Indians were lazy
and would not do any work oxcept on
fine dayi—a light fog or rain being a
sufficient excuse to refute duty. After
the fint day the boats never brought
in lets thin one hundred halibut, averaging between 30 and 40 lbs. eaoh. All
through theie wntori ialmon were
found in plenty. After lome further
cruising, during which several other
bank! were located, the Oriel's lioad
wai turned homewarda with a sufficient
oaten on hoard to pay all expenses and
a neat profit besides. Stiff head winds
and leveral dreary calms were mot
with on the trip home, but the last
day out brought a surprite in the way
of weather that Oapt. Grant will nut
forget for many a long day. On Tuesday morning a itrong nor'weiter
sprung up wnich mon changed into a
gale, lashing the sea into foam and
making it almost impossible to carry
enough canvass to steady the veuel.
Fortunately Burrard Iniet waa close at
hand and after much trouble Oapt.
Grant managed to enter it in ufoty.
Speaking of the proipeoti nf the
fisheries Capt. Grant informed a representative of Thi Columbian that their
greatness is inappreciable, but iteam
veueli will be necessary to make the
buiineu profitable. Steam ichoonen,
fitted with every appliance, are the
only clati of veueli luitable to the

___ FIMT MrM.
Em-roii Columbian. — Although two
monthi have to elapse before the coming
civic election, yet it is none too early to
be alive and moving in the matter. Some
of the present council may become candidates for re-election, and whether they
deserve the support of the eleoton ihould
depend upon the manner in which they
have carried out their trusts In the put..
Though not open to charges of corruption, yet I think It plain that they have
not been vigilant,- and through their
lack of enterprise and energy have suffered the Interests of the oity to be neglected and its trade to pass Into another
channel. You have bocu good enough,
Mr. Editor, to refer, on several occasions,
to the exigency that has existed for the
establishment of tho fint market. Havo
not the council turned a deaf ear to your
warning, with the result that Vauoouvor
has gained that advantage which should
have belonged to the royal city! How
often the council adjourn for want of a
quorum! The look of Interest which ne.
cessitates thia does not occur in any
other place in the province. No one
will deny that the prodlgiout growth of
Vancouver ia due to tho energy of itt
oitizens and the Interest taken by its
mayor and aldermen, who so ably discharge that trust confided to them by
their constituents? Strangers notice this
and are not.blluif.to its results. Let us
tako pattern by Vancouver and elect a
wide-awake counoil of business men with
outside experience. If thii be done, we
■halt learn how other citiei become
known and attractive, otherwise West*
minster will fall to occupy that leading
position for which' nature has admirably
fitted her. Z.
