SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
A hospital (or animala il one of
London's new humane institutions,
and the number ol horses, dogs, eats
and other animals presented for
medical and surgical treatment has
already necessitated extension of
space.
Prof. Ayrton defines inertia, from
the European standpoint, as "resistance to motion," and, from the
American standpoint, as "resistance
to standing still." The difference is
exemplified in the fact that there
are hardly 100 electric motors at
work in Great Britain, while **in
America there are 6,000.
The Greatest Light.—Since
lust May the most powerful artificial light in existence bat been
that of the St. Oatherine's Point
lighthouse, in the Isle of Wight It
is an electric arc, produced between
carbons 2*t inohes in diameter, and
it is estimated to be equal in illuminating power to rather more
than 7,000,000 candles. It is made
to revolve, and every half-minuto a
mighty flash of five seconds duration
sweeps around the sea, and it is
visible at distances that seem in
credible.
An Antiseptic Faint.—The use
of wood-creosote, which is extensively distilled in North Carolina from
the wood of Binuspalustris, is recommended by Oapt. W H. Bixby
for antiseptic purposes. . It destroys vegetable and animal life, re
pels moisture, and coagulates fermentable matter. As a paint for
wooden or metallic surfaces, it preserves them from wet and dry rot,
rust and the attacks of insects; and
when forced by hydraulic pressure
into the pores of wood its antiseptic
effects are,extended to the very
centre of the bloek.
A Mechanical Novelty.—The
remarkable Mannesmann process of
making seamless tubes ii described
by Mr. F. Siemens aa consisting in
passing the bar of solid metal or
glass between revolving conoidal
rolls. These rolls are so arranged
that the varying velocities of revolution with whioh tbe different
parts of the red-hot bar are brought
into contact cause the formation of
a hollow through the bar's centre.
Tubes a foot in diameter, with n
shell only a quarter of an inch thiok,
may be produced in this way, and
great strength i* claimed for them.
A bar of metal ho* been introduced
between the rolls in luch * manner
as to form a tube with sealed ends,
the hollow centre being a vacuum,
Am Pkopkllebs fob Steamships.—The use of rotating sails, or
air propellors, has been considered
as a means of driving steamships.
According to Mr. H. 0. Vogt, the
sails need not be very large, and the
external appearance of the apparatus he would propose would be
little different from that of the
screw propeller, but the wing*
would be broadest near the circumference, and be made of sheet steel
Rapid rotation creates a rarefaction
of the air in front of the wings,
causing * thrust to be given quite aa
great as that from the screw. The
screw propeller loses by friction, by
throwing water in the wrong direction, ana by blowij but the air propeller suffers loss only by the first
two, while it derives a great gain
from 75 per cent of the winds. The
crude experiments thui far made
have given promising results.
A Great Find of Early Paint
mas.—Seeking in Lower Egypt,
during the present year, for remains
of the wonderful Labyrinth of 3,000
chambers described by Herodotus,
Mr. Flinders Petrie leemi to have
found what he sought, with the
pyramidal tomb ot ita builder, and
also came upon a great cemetry
whoso existence had hitherto been
unknown. This cemetry covers
about 100 aores, and date* from the
Graeoo-Roman period, one or two
centuries after Christ. From it Jl r.
Petrie has taken hundreds of mummies, with a vast collection of objects buried with tlieui. These
artioles include funerary vases,
amulets, toys, a tinned copper mirror, a burning lens, a set of leather
workers' needles, a flint knife, and
—by far the most interesting nnd
important of all—a splendid series
of portraits, painted upon the cases
of elaborately bandaged mummies,
and representing the living persons
whose remains were placed in these
coffins seventeen centuries ago.
Theso pictures will add an important chapter to the history of art,
Mr. 11. A. Harrison, Chanttt ud
Druggist, Uiimiville, Ont., writes: "I
can with cimfiiienco recommend Northrop and Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
and Dyspeptic Cure for Dyspepsia, Im.
fiure Blood, Pimples oa the Face, Bit.
oiisness and Constipation — suoh cases
having como under my personal observation."

Arabic arrival from Hong Kong and
Yokohama thii aftornoun. The Japan
Gfaaffe hss a statement which wai publiihed in the China Times laying that
great animosity ii felt at Kwan Tung
againat the' Chineie miniiter to the
United States on account of his action
in the matter of the treaty whioh hai
recently been rejected by Iho Chinese
government, and an angry mob tried
to wreck the minister'! home. The
China Timet contain! lettors signed by
a Pekin official, written just after the
newi had reached China that the U.S.
lenate had patted the Chineie Etclu-
aion bill. The following extract ii
taken from the letter: 'if thia obnoxious American bill should be carried into effect, there will be no other
course open for China consistent with
her dignity as a nation than to adopt
retaliatory ineaiurei, by prohibiting
the citizens ef the United Statei from
coming to China. This will be by no
means proportionate to the harm done
Chineie interests in America, but it
will have to be done in order to show
that the Chineie can do something,
and if this will have no effect in bringing the United Statei congreu and the
United Statei government to reason
and fairncst, then it will be a question
for China to consider whether it is not
better for her to cancel her trentioi
made with that country, to recall her
subjects from there, to expel all United
Statei citizens from this country and
to cease all relation! and intercoune,
diplomatic and commercial, with thia
country."

Ten prisoner! on the Hong Kong

The inspector got the launch to pursue

repeatedly called the attention of
the authorities to tho injustice of
that action, and the board of trado
hu memorialized the Dominion government on the same subject. A
reasonable subsidy should be pro-
vided for a daily, or, at least a triweekly, mail service, which would
insure and compel a steamer to run
regularly and thereby meet the necessities of the case. Every effort
ihould be made to secure such a
tubsidy from the government. In
the meantime, the business men of
the oity ihould be alive to their own
interests to the extent of aiding and
patronizing a steamer and making
suoh arrangements, as shall insure a
regular service of some kind immediately. Any .time lost in this nutter can only result in still further
alienating the trade of the important
North Arm settlement from this oity.
The first week of the famous
Parnell commission has been occupied by Attorney-General Webster
stating the oase on behalf of the
Timet. He concluded his address
yeiterday, and the enquiry was adjourned until Tuesday next. The
next order will be bringing on the
witnesses for tho Timet and against
Parnell and his associates. Webster hu promised to call as witnesses
persons who had been acting participators in various outrages, and
who would tell what moneys had
been paid them for their share of the
work, and how the crimes were arranged; io that the fun may be said
toaetually commence next week.
Perhapi the most notable incident
of the oommission so far, and one
which the Parnellites are naturally
elated over, and will turn to good
account in the trial, ia the admission by the Timet' solicitors that
that journal is in possession of a
bundle of letters, admittedly
ipurious, whioh were purchased in
America. The obvious inference is
that, if the letters are not all genuine, the Timet may have been deceived in the matter of the other
documents upon whioh its case is
baaed. The Parnell commission inquiry promises to engage the attention and interest of the oivilized
world, as did the famoua Tiohborne
oaae, nearly twenty years ago. By
means of the telegraph and tne daily
paper, the citizens of New Westminster can watch the daily pro-
greu of this interesting trial almost
equally aa well a* the inhabitants of
Old Westminster, where the commission holds its sittings.
We clip the following paragraph
from the Vancouver News of Tuesday last, and would recommend
.our citizens to make it note of, it,
ind to make a practical, application
of the gentle hint it is fitted to convey to'the royal city, when they
come to select their next board of
aldermen, There are many other
important suggestions which we
shall bring before the people prior to
the closing of the present civio year;
bnt this will do for a starter: "One
by one the various cities on thit
coast are seeing that it is desirable
in the interests of the community
to make some distinction—outwardly at least—between Sunday
and the other days of the weok,
Although some kinds of sports have
recently been largely engaged in on
Sunday in some of the largo citiea
of the United States, there nre not
wanting signs that a reaction against
the practice has already set in, Altogether, apart from religious motives, there arc natural causes which
make it almost eertain that a people which pursues its labors or ordinary pursuits without intermission
from Sunday morning till Saturday
night, will deteriorate, and this is
coming to be recognized oven by
thoso who have hitherto seemed to
think that they could steal a march
upon their more old-fashioned neighbors by laboring without pause or
intermission. The last notable
change in this course is that of Tacoma, where on Sunday last the law
closing all saloons on that day came
into force and was generally observed, the popular feeling evidently
being in favor of it. Vancouver has
set an example in this respect whioh
the other coast oities are rapidly
following." As the News says, Ta
coma bus recently adopted a Sunday
closing by-law, and, to tho honor of
tho city be it said, the law was generally observed on coming into force.
The Tacoma papers state that there
were three violations of the closing
ordinance, but the violators were
promptly arrested on Monday morning and taught to respect Mm law in
future. We can learn a lesson from
our enterprising American neighbors in this respect. Tacoma is an
enterprising, go-a-head, ambitious
city, but recognizes clearly, from a
dispassionate business standpoint,
that it cannot be regarded as a desirable place for the better classes of
peoplo to locate so long as it Haunts
such a stigma on its 'scutcheon as
on openly desecrated Sabbath,
Westminster has taken rather. low
ground ou this question, but we hope
to see a more civilized and Christian
ized spirit prevail in future. We
believe that tho majority of those
kceping'open house on Sunday now
would prefer to close, if the closing
were made compulsory and universal. Be that as it may, the fair
fame and prosperity of the city,
moral and material, demands that
the Subbatb be decently observed,
outwardly at least. Such is not the
case at present, and wo hope to see
a decided change made in this re-
Bpect, as in some others, by the
municipal council of 1889.
The explorationi of Oapt 0. D.
Grant, of this city, in the schooner
Oriel, an account of which was pub.
liahed in The Columbian the other
day, tie- likely to be fraught with
important results to Westminster, if
our oitizens take the matter up in
the proper spirit and assist to form
a oompany for the purpose of fishing
in the teeming waten of the coast.
Oapt Grant's investigations—and,
being a thoroughly practical man,
hit verdiotia all the more valuable
—have demonstrated that, with
proper appliances, a most profitable
fishing buiineu can be engaged in
from the itart. Silver ulmon were
found in abundance, and the reports
from th* halibut banks are most
gratifying, u will have been seen
by our published account of Oapt.
Grant's trip. Halibut, weighing
from 26 to 90 lbs. each, were caught
in large numbers, even with the im-
paTfect.ppri.noes at the disposal of
aha -exploring ichooner. Steam

'      ."***» At* Difficult To Report.
The resorting In tlio House is managed
llfTerentiy from that in the Senate, and
in the former, be! njr a body so much
larrer and noiscr than tbo Senate, the reporters are compelled to chase around after tbemetnbers wbo speak. Ina running
debate, where members are Jumping np
In all part, of the hail, It is extremely dit-
flcuit to catch all tbey cay, yet If Is don.
quite well, tnd only ln time, of great excitement and commotion do the stenographers loie their connection.
Over In the Senato the two head stenographers alt at tables near the presiding
officer's desk. The chamber being small,
they can hear distinctly what ii said, and
seli'.om hav.'tocall ou Senator! to supply
missing portions of sentences or paragraphs.
Five r*pld men do the work In tbe
House, who are veterans in the service,
and who are ao hardened to their work
that it looks aa if they would never wear
out. In the House the five men take
turn., relieving eacli other ut tbe expiration ot light minutes.
They do not write out their notes Into
long hand themselves, but godown slain,
' wherethereiinunrmyof lea,experienced
stenographers to whom thoy can leisurely
dictate wbut thoy have tulion ln tbo Itn.ll,
and these peoplo in turn write out In long
hand the debates.
Nearly every member who makes a
speech of five minutes' duration wants to
see the manuscript before it goes to tbe
Record oflice, and tb's makes it necessary
to send the roll of manuscript to tb.
member's house or hotel. It ii a big job,
and what a member says bus to pass
through many hands' before it ia finally
issued in the Record.
Usually the stenographers work only
twelve out of the twcnty.four months, although the chief hteiiojjraplicr.-tbat is,
the shorthand writers who take tbo pro-
ceedluga—aro paid annual salaries of
$5,000 each. They certainly earn their
salaries, and bnt fcr the long rest every
other year they could not -itand the
strain;--
When statesmen become cither excited
or enthusiastic they are, as ageneral rule,
rapid talkers. The longer a man li in
Congress the more fluent does he become,
aud some ot the Senators wbo are given
to long speeches talk' like nbluestreak."
The moat dlCkult Senator by loug odd!
to report te Mr. Plumb of Kansas. Ho
not only rattles away nt a lively rate, but
cbepa off his words. He cau say more in
aahorter apace of time than anyone In
tbe Senate.
Mcisrs Morgan of Alabama and Blair
ot New Hampshire are next to him in
the way of rapid speaking, perhaps. Mr.
Hoar has such a twang that he Is bard to
report, though ho speaks slowly and deliberately.
The hardest to report of all tbe Senators
is Mr. Evarts, Tb. old gentleman, io
famouafor long seulences, ts wind broken
and hii voice is husky ami Indistinct. He
ipeaks ilowly enough, hut bo is so Indistinct tbeie days that people who have
heard of bla fame ai an orator are disappointed whan they go to lb. Senat.

Chicken Me.11.1 Be*l.t.
Last night our Celestial friend*
opened the chicken stealing season by
a grand raid on Mr. J. S. Clute'i
henhouie. Taking advantage of the
wet and atormy night the thievei performed thoir work with a daring and
coolneia lomewhat surprising, and
their mode of affecting an entrance to
the premises givei color to the belief
that the several burglariei committed
during the paat summer were the work
of the ume penons. Mr. Clute'i
chicken yard ii surrounded by a high
fence, the gato to which b locked
every night. Inside Ihe enclosure b the henhouie, alio securely
fastened by a itrong spring
look. The robben fint of all eut a
board acrou with a large auger and
then removed the board, giving eaiy
entnnoe to the yard. For ventilation
purposes one pane of glass had been
removed from tho only window in the
henhouse, and this aided the celestials
in performing the work quietly. A
large box lying in the yard wai carried
over to the window and one of tho
thievei mounting thereon pasted hia
hand through the hole and unfastened
the tpring inside. It was then an eaiy
matter to open the window and bag
the game. Fourteen fine birda were
taken, tome of them being of
considerable value and all superior to
the general run of poultry. When the
thievei were latiified they took their
departure quietly without disturbing
anyone. Of course thore ii no clue to
the robben, nor ii thore likely to be
one found, ai thete gentry have a
happy faihion of covering their track*
and making detection almoit impoi-
lible. However, the icuon having
arrived when this nrt of thing becomes epidemic, it would be well for
everyone to take extra precaution, and
keep a double barreled ihot .gun conveniently at hand to give th. intruder!

Joseph Hennilstone is a well-to do
farmer whose farm adjoins the
Vaugban plank road ia York township. He hat a prepossessing daughter
of seventeen summers, named Maria.
About a year ago M. Sinclair, a dealer
in small goodi, stopped under Mr.
Heunibtone'i hoipitahle roof one
night and made the acquaintance of
Maria. Friendship loon ripened into
love and Sinclair frequently called at
the Hennilstone home pretumably on
busineu. Mr. Hennilstone a week
ago found a letter in which Sinclair
declared his passion and proposed to
the girl. When Sinclair next called
to transact buiinesa and tee hii inamorata he wu driven from the house
by Mr. Hennilstone with a ihot gun.
The clandestine correspondence wai
not interrupted by thb incident, u
Sinclair wrote a note to Maria uking
her to meet him on Wednesday night,
when they would wed without the old
gentleman's knowledge or consent.
The love-sick maiden foolishly kept
the tryat, and soon ihe and the man of
hor choice were in a buggy and on
thoir way to Toronto. A man who
bad leen them depart notified Mr.
Hennibtoneof hii daughter'! flight,
and the irate father with his ion immediately itarted in pursuit. The
loren reached Toronto and on Thunday night wero about to take the 11.30
train for Detroit, when tho unexpected
appearance cf the girl'i lather and
brother disconcerted their plim.
Sinclair auddenly departed, while tbe
father reclaimed hb daughter and took

On the hut trip up to Revebtoke
the iteamboat Dbpatch hid aboard
aevenl well-known mine ownen from
Toad Mountain. One of tbo Hall
boyi and John McDonald were among
the number. They report having received returni from a trial shipment
of 21_ toni of ore lent to anaconda;
Montana, for reduction. The ahip-
meut netted them an even 87,000,
after paying transportation and smelting charges that aggregated {80 a ton.
The one carried 9308 in silver and
8250 in gold to tho ton, besides going
28 per cent, in copper. The pay steak
from which thb ore wus taken ii about
two feet in width, although the ledge
b 30 feet wide in places. These gentlemen were in tow of a prominent O.
P. R. employee, which gave ritu to the
rumor that the great Hall properties
had been bonded to a syndicate of
capitalistic 0. P. officials. No definite
information could be obtained further
than that arrangements were being per-
footed to keep men at work on the
claimt all winter. About 100 men are
in the camp at preient. A report ii
current in Donald that the C. P. R.
has purchased tha Ainsworth charter
and will at once commence the construction of a railway to connoct the
navigable waten of Kootenay lake with
thoae of the Columbia river, a distanee
of about 30 miles, alio, that they will
put on two steamora on tho Columbia
to Diy between the western terminus
of tie[ nwr road and Revebtoke. Owing to the fact that a hamlet in another
Eart of tha province ia uimed Salb-
ury, the ii.me of the Toad mountain
Salisbury lias been changed. It is to
be called K. mon hereafter in honor of
the preient lieutenant-governor of the

Editor Columbian. - It was with
pleasure I read "Z'-'s letter in your pa*
per a few days ago, calling attention to
the council for 16S9. Although it is a
little early to make up the personnel, yet
all thinking citUens must recognize the
necessity for*a sweeping change and the
introduction of more enterprising and ex-
ririenced business men at the new board,
do not agree with all "Z" has said concerning the old council, for it cannot be
denied that it has done very well indeed
with the means at Itand. The railway
bonus bylaws could not have been sue*
ces-afully followed by others this year,
nor would it have been advisable to test
the city's credit with another $100,000
or $150,000 loan. Not that our credit is
poor but tha terms of the loan would not
be equal to the first and consequently
the city would havo to pay more for it.
In the coming year much money will be
required to oe spent on street improvements, public buildings, water-works,
etc., and towards that end the new board
of aldermen must be composed of experienced business men with advanced ideas
and not of inch f oasils as
