A case came before tke Sheriffs
Court at Dundee, Scotland, recently
in which a woman claimed aliment
from her threo sons-in-law. The
shoriir docided that "the liability of
a son-in-law to support his wife's
parents was a natural one which he
was bound to take over with his
wife." The mother-in-law, in Scotland at least, is thus a firmly established institution with a legal
status now added to ber former
great moral weight in the house-
hold,   '	
At Saginaw Oity, Mich., Nov-
euiler 29, u terrific explosion, at a
quarter to ono p.m., shook tho city,
and was closely followed by ail
alarm of fire from the direction of
the Steglein furniture factory, standing nearly in the center of the eity.
When the firemen reached the scene,
tho factory was demolished and enveloped in flames—tho wreck was
complete. The cause of the explosion was an accumulation of dust
Tlie mon had just left for dinner,

An exchange says : The Canadian oitiea have nothing to be
ashamed of in the growth recorded
during the last twenty years. We
have Toronto springing from 66,-
000 in 1871 to 170,000 in 1888,
and Montreal growing from 107,-
000 in 1871 to 186,000 in 1886,
Hamilton during the same period
increasing from 26,700 to 41,280,
London from 15,820 to 26,000 and
Ottawa from 21,000 to 36,000. In
the five years between 1881 and
1886 Montreal gained 32 per cent,
Toronto 54, Hamilton 17, London
32 and Ottawa 36.

The Journal iP Agriculture states
that it is customary in Upper
Saone (France), both on farms and
in villages, to preserve meat in
summer by placing it in large earthen panH or pots tilled with curdled
milk, or even with skimmed milk,
which soon curdles, and storing the
vessels in the cellar. In order to
keep tlio meat beneath tho surface
of tho milk, it is loaded with clean
stones. Meat is preserved in this
way for over a week, without the
least change of its flavor. When
it is needed for use, it is simply
washed and dried. The milk ii fed
to swine.
i Says America: Reports from
London slato that Her Grace the
Duchess of Marlborough intends
spending the winter in tho south of
France, her husband, the Duke, remaining in England. This would
seem to indicate that the domestic
eirele is not without its storms,
American women who marry titles
instead of the men they love must
be prepared for a life in which marital happiness plays no part. A coronet cannot take the place of a heart;
and the sooner American women
learn that the only title of nobility
to whioh they should aspire is that
of the wife of sn honest man, the
better it will be for their happiness
and that of thoso who hold them
dear.
A now departure in the field of
telephony is announced in the shape
of the Lowth stettio-telephone,
which dispenses with the diaphragm.
It is described as a combined transmitter and receiver. A hollow extension about four inches long is
attached to the receiver, (rom the
end of which a small button protrudes slightly. This • button ia
placed againit tho throat near tho
vocal chords, and the receiver is
hold against the ear in the usual
manner. When the operator speakt
the vibrations of the throat are
transmitted with distinct elearncss.
The instrument is operated not by
soundwaves, as is the Bell telephone, but by the muscular vibrations that accompany tho utterance of words. It is claimed by tho
patentees that for this reason the
instrument can be used more sue-
cossfuly in longdistance talking
than the old system, because there
is no limit to the strength or number of batteries that oan  be  used
An exchange says: One of the
largest millers in the United States,
0. A, Pilltbury, it credited with
assorting that American millers do
not dampen their wheat before
grinding it. This is correct of some
millers, but not of til and the
reason it not attributed to differences in millers, but to differences
in wheat. Most of the California
wheut ground in this itate is moistened, because it is found necessary to do so. On the other band,
Oregon wheat will not itand dampening, as it contains enough water
without this treatment On this
account local millers prefer California wheat, at they can add the necessary water for nothing, whioh
they have to pay for in the Oregon
article. When shipped abroad or
stored for monthi at tidewater,
thore is less difference, as wheat
which is not moist will become so
whon in a damp atmosphere.
California wheat when afloat gains
two to three per cont from absorption of moisture. A certain percentage of water in wheat is essential to render it lit for grinding,
and the moisture has to be either
found in tho grain or applied
artificially thereto.

ANOTHER W HITECH A I'EL   MURDER.
London, Deo, 21.—The dead body of
an unknown woman was found in tbe
populous district with an empty phial
lying beside it. At first it was supposed
toe woman suicided by poison but evidence was produced at the autopsy to-day
showing the stomach contained no poison.
A small cord wai found tied around the
throat, which Is believed produced
strangulation, it Is thought death re-
suited from this cause. 'The unfortunate woman Is not identified, but she waa
of the same clan as those murdered by
the so-called Whitechapel fiend. Her
body was still warm when discovered.
It ia thought to be impossible that the
woman could have committed suicide in
open thoroughfare where tho body waa
found. It is belioved sho fell a victim to
the miscreant who murdered and mutilated ao many other women near the locality in which this crime occurred, -and
who seems to have adopted a new way of
disposing of his victima.

NEWS FROM STANLEY,
Zanzibar, Dec. 21,—Letters dated
Stanley Falls: Aug. 29, have been de*
livered by Tippo Tib's men. They state
a letter was received at Stanley Falls,
from fl. M. Stanley, Aug. 28. Stanley
was then at Boneyala, on the Aruwhirai
river, whero he had arrived Auguat 17.
He had left Emin Pasha 82 days before,
in perfect health and provided with
plenty of food. S'-nloy hod returned to
Boneyala fcr the the loads in charge of
his rear guard and intended to leave in
ten days to rejoin Emin. He reported
all the whites in the expedition healthy
and said the expedition wanted nothing,

MR. SMALEt S CABLE..
LoNnox, Dec. 21.—With reference
to tho British legation at Washington,
some kind of coinpr.-miau in now Enid
to be in favor at the foreign ullice. Sir
Jas. Fei'tJUsiiirBstatuintjiit in the housu
of c-iiniiion** on Monday scorns to have
made a bad impression. Sir Willinni
Harcourt, whoso attitude was both
friendly and sensible, tried to etilar-'Q
it by assuming thore was.no foundation
for the belief that nn new minister
would bo sent while Mr. Cleveland
Was president, but Sir James, unable
to go an inch beyond the strict hitter
uf Lord Salisbury's written instruct!.* s
to him, declined to sanction this view.
He repeated all that had beon snid wa.
that no declaration of intended delay
hod been made. This convinced tho
members of tho houae that Lord Salisbury meant to let matters drift. They
saw the danger of suoh a course sooner
or later. The American minister
must ask for explanations and must go
home if none was forthcoming. It is
therefore now suggested that Mr. Edwards shall return as charge d' affairs.
But for the Sackville incident,
Mr. Edwards, who was here on
leave of absence would already
have returned. It is felt thnt to prevent his retu-itn is an affront possibly
graver than the failure to send a
succespor to Lord Sackville. The latter
11 butau action of omission,but Mr. Edwards can only remain here by order of
his superior,which is an aot of commission. Many reasons might bo given
for not immediately appointing a new
minister, aud the only possible reason
for keeping Mr. Edwards away from
his post ii tho deairo to resent Lord
Saokville's dismissal.
a coachman's funeral.
Yesterday beheld a spectacle this
generation has nover before witnessed
and which, perhaps, no generation nny
where else in thu world could have
produced. It was nothing less than a
public funeral to "Jem" Selby, Into
whip of the Brighton MM Times Coach.
His business iu lifo was to drive four
in hand. He did it perhaps better than
any rival. Uo wns ttt tho head of his
profession and to thousands hu was a
hero. Neither ()ueen nor uovurnmoiit
sent a delegate, but little else was
wanting to make thia a solemn cere-
mouiul. The body lay in slate aud
multitudes gathered about tho house
and lilted one w li "h1 quarter of London.
A diviiinii of police kept ordor. The
funeral cor wns covered with costly and
beautiful Howera. Eighteen coaches,
three drags nnd some hundreds i-f
private carrisges nnd  cabs  formed   a

LATE DESPATCHES.
FAY TFMl'LETOIi MLSSIN0.
Chicaoo, Dec. 14.—The Times will
say to-morrow: Fay Templeton, the
well-known comic opera artiste, has
been mysteriously missing from her
company for several nights past. Excuse has been made that she was ill,
but that has been exploded, investigation showing that she has not been
nt her boarding houso since first missing. It is quite generally belioved tonight that the gay favorite has started
on another of her European adventures.
SEATTLE WILL BE VI8ITBD.
Washington, Dec. 14.—As regards
the commission recently appointed by
the secretary of the navy, under a provision for that purpose contained in
the last naval appropriation bill, to examine the coast north of tho forty-
second parallel of north latitude, in the
shite of Oregon and the territories of
Washington and Alaska, and to select
n suitable sight for a navy yard and
dock*-, it may be said that the commissioners had .an interview with the
Oregon senators at the capitol, and discussed various possible locations. The
names of prominent business men at
each location were selected; also such
other information as the senators could
givo them. The commissioners will
examine Coos Bay, Yaquina Bay,
Portland, Astoria, Tacoma, Seattle,
Port Townsend, and other places on
Puget Sound. Tho commissioners
will confer with prominent men at each
place, and will make a careful examination of the advantages which eaeh
presents.
CATTLE, COAL AND HOPS.
San Francisco, Dec. 10.—Bradstreet's
Commercial Agency reports 15 failures in
the Pacific coaat elates and territories for
last week, as compared with 20 for the
previous week and 8 for the corresponding week in 1887. The market Is in a
downward condition. Australian coals
have been further marked down. The
price principally for cargoes from such
colleries as Seattle and Sydney, as produce only steam coal, that come in direct
competition with our coast output, have
also oeen marked down materially. Coaat
cargoes show a clear loss of 81.50 to $1.75
per ton to the shipper. Coast mines are
shipping freely, but very little is accumulating in the yards owing to increased consumption. The hop market
is very dull and the prospects are not
encouraging for any Immediate movement In consequence. The atock of
California cattle is light. Nearly all tho
arrivals during the past week have been
from Nevada and eastern Oregon, the latter being in the best condition. Prices
for salmon and wool remain linn.
Wheat ia higher; barley is easier; onU
and corn dull; sugar lower; potato--;- and
onions firm; butter weaker, and ■'-•-■s in
good demand.

A FRENCH SENSATION.
Paris, Dee. 20.—Tho newspapers
comment upon M, Lacour's speech in
the senate yesterday aa a masterly
effort although seveial of them reproach hiin for striking a blow fat the
republic by attacking tho radicals.
The Journal des Debate credits him
with tho courage of his conviction. In
the senate this afternoon M. Leon Say
withdrew his motion on M. Lacour's
speeoh. After he madethis announcement, M. Naguet ascented the tribune
and reviewed M. Say's motion. This
caused a great uproar, the members
shouting -'enough, enough," and demanding that the member take his

Speaking  of  the    Westminster
Southern Railway somo time sinco,
wo referred to it as u "citizens'  affair."   Tlio truth of this remark has
been demonstrated on every occasion
of public expression on the subject,
and again last night more   forcibly
than ever.   As will be seen by  the
very full report of the meeting   last
night in our columns,   the   citizens
and ratepayers bave enthusiastically
and    successfully   inaugurated   11
movement whioh places the Southern  Railway  matter  beyond   the
threats and  machinations   of  its
worst enemy and the ill-judged   opposition of the most stupid  avowed
friend.   Resting as it does upon the
sure foundation of tbe will  of  the
vast majority of the ratepayers, the
scheme must have been  eventually
oarried out in its entirety, at any
rate; but tbe public confidence hnd
been somewhat disturbed by threats
of what seme of the injunctors  still
meant to do, and delays and partial
paralysis in prosecuting  the   work
must have ensued.   By tho action of
the citizens last night, however, complete confidence bas been  restored,
the citizens  havo  done not only
themselves and  tho city infinite
credit, by  sustaining our untarnished reputation for honor and good
faith,   bub the  injunctors and all
workers against the city's interests
in the matter are completely set  at
naught and  all  their  throats of
future proceedings may be   laughed
at, while work on the railway, ferry,
ite, will go on with all possible despatch,  and  the city will reap the
conseijuei.t advantages.   The meeting last  night  also  demonstrated
that the cllnrts of   the   patriotic (1)
injunctors arc not appreciated,   and
that the guntleiiiun composing our
local  railway  company, instead of
being the  liooillers  and   schemers
some loud  nud   rcckluss   spouters
have insinuated,  aro generally recognized as tho true friends of  tho
city, and worthy of  overy   support
and encouragement.   The royal oity
has again shown that no  obstacles
will be allowed to stand in the way
of her progress, by whomsoever  interposed.
We take pleasure in quoting  the
following leading article in full from
yesterday's News, and would recommend its perusal   by  our  readers:
"We aro sorry to see tho tardiness
with  which  the  people  of New
Westminster are responding to the
proposal of our cotemporary, Tub
Columbian, to raise a fund towards
the necessary  expenses connected
with the exhibition of tbo Provincial
Agricultural Association, which  is
to be held in the Royal  Oity next
year.   Such reluctance to contribute
to this object would seem to indicate
an indifference on the part of  the
citizens of Westminster to the matter that is not  worthy  of a place
which in other matters has shown
so much  enterprise.     Vancouver
was anxious that the meeting of the
association should be held here, and
had the vote been favorable to  this
place there is no doubt our citizens
would have responded so liberally to
any call for assistance that the  exhibition at Vancouver would bave
far outshone any of its predecessors
aa regards the magnitude of the show
and the liberal manner in which the
arrangements connected    with   it
avere carrird out.   As it is, however,
under the rules of the  association
which require that the annual meetings shall be held on tbo island and
mainland alternately, it will not be
possible for an exhibition of it to be
hold in Vancouver before 1891 and
in consequence of this it is probablo
tbat efforts will bo mode to organize
a new and local association.   Under
these  circumstances,  therefore,   it
behooves tho people of   Now Westminster to   bestir  themselves   and
thow to the whole province that in
the selection of that placo  for  the
meeting of 18149, u wise choice was
made.   The people of  Vancouver
also would be doing a friendly act if
thoy showed a hearty desire to cooperate with thoir neighbors on the
Fraser.   We were carefully ignored
in the arrangements for the meeting
held thit year, but tho managers of
the association saw tlie mistake they
nude  in acting ns they did before
the meeting was over.   When, howover, an exhibition of this character
is held iu Vancouver, we may count
upon the people of Westminster assisting us, and, in return, the  oiti-
zent there may depend that if they
aot energetically in  regard  to the
forthcoming moeting in their  city,
thtt Vancouver will do all  in  her
power  to  mako it a eomplote success,"   Notwithstanding the apparent UrdinNS of our oitiiens in  the
matter of raising the exhibition
fund, we hsvo every confidence that
they will do the grand thing nnd insure that tho provincial exhibition
of I860 shall be a   brilliant success
in every particular.   The royal cily
tnsy be depended on every time, if it
il ■ little slow ocnotionally.
An examination of tho suggestions
nnd recommendations of tlie salmon
dinners and packers of the province,
together with their reasons and ex.
planations, in the niatter of proposed
fishery regulations for the province,
to be found on another  page,   will
convince any unbiased  person that
the new regulations just issued  require modification in tho interests of
the salmon fishing industry.    With
respect to section 2,  dealing  with
the size of mesh for salmon net, we
believe that the recommendation of
tbe cannerymen, that the minimum
size of  mesh be 5} instead of C
inches, has been made good by their
reasons in support of it, which are,
substantially, tbat the fish of the sock-
eye run vary in size different years,
and while a six  inch   mesh   might
work very well on   gome occasions,
at other times the majority of  the
fish would go through.   A change
in this respect, too, would  mean  a
considerable   loss   in   nets,   which
would havo to be discarded. Serious
objection is taken to the clause providing that nets shall not  obstruct
more than one-third of a river, which
practically limits tho length  of all
nets to  one-third  of   the  width
of   the  narrowest   part   of   the
river fished, or confines longer nets
to certain drifts.'   It is considered
by the dinners and fishermen  that
two-third, of tho river should be allowed to be fished in the  narrowest
parts, thus permitting the use of a
net of respectablo length throughout.
Thoir recommendation in  this respect, we believo should be attended
to.   The new regulations sny  thnt
"fishing for salmon shall be discontinued from six a-m. on Saturdays
to six a.m. of the following Monday"
—48 hours in all.   This provision
was before the canners and packers
of the Fraser River and of tbe  province in draft, and was very strongly
opposed.   The reasons for the very
decided opposition of tbo canners on
this point are well set forth in their
communication to the inspector  of
fisheries, which will be found on another page.   It will be seen that the
canners and fishermen do not wish
any extension of the  present  close
time, which is from noon Saturday
till six p in. on Sunday, or 30 hours.
They argue that, with the 48 hours
close timo of the new   regulations,
operations will have to be suspended
in the canneries part   of  Saturday
and all of Monday, which would bo
a great loss in various ways, as  set
forth.   It cannot   be  denied  that
there is considerable force in the arguments of lite canners in   this  respect; but we think,   with   the   inspector of fisheries, that,  while   48
hours  close   time may injuriously
affect   the  canning   interests,   30
hours is not sufficient, and that tho
close  timo  should   be   at least 36
hours—either from six 11.111. Saturday
till   six   p.m.   on Sunday, or frjm
noon on Saturday till twelve, midnight, on Sunday.   Wc should prefer to see the latter proposition carried out, as we believe it would be
equally aa good for the canners and
fishermen, and would, at  the  same
time, be more in the line of Sabbath
observance, which,  as  an avowed
Christian nation, we are   bound  to
protect whenever possible.   Clause
(i, added by the canners and packers
themselves, with the  reasons  and
explanations given by  them,  must
commend itself to the favorable consideration of the fishery authorities
at Ottawa, as constituting  an   important protection  to the sockeye
salmon, by the use of large meshed
nets  for a certain period, and, by
the proposed close season  from the
20th of October to the 1st  of  February, protecting not only the spring
ialmon and cohoes to somo  extent,
but safe-guarding the market against
unseasonable and  poisonous   fish.
With respect to section 6 of the new
regulations, empowering the minister of marine and fisheries to "determine the number of boats," be,,
to be used in "any of the waters of
British Oolumbia," it is to be hoped
that this power may   be  exercised
judiciously the coming season,  and
substantial protection thus   afforded
the    salmon,   without   militating
against the fishing industries at the
lame time.

ilnolyl THE SUN DANCE.
A Great Pagan Festival Among the Bio
Indians.
Tho netnal ceremonies in connection with
this dunue are very tiresome as are all theso
I mt In n ceremonies, if they can be dignified
with such a name. There may be an occasional extra shuffle In the dance, but it is the
samo old thing, the same old song and the
iaiiii! old time. Itmakhs one tired. About
thu only thing which can excite one's curiosity is the making of a brave. On Sunday
one Indian went through the ordeal. In the
olden time, when there was really a good
deal of torture connected with this ceremony, there might have been something in
it worth seeing. . '.
Now, however it Is different. No braves
were to be made this year, and the one who
finally submitted to the operation offered
himself for $3, Ur. Boorne, the enterprising
photographer, had bargained with the buck
for thnt amount. After about an hour of
weary waiting a ghost-like figure glided into
thii lodge, closed his fingers over the $3, and
glided out again. Another hour and a half
nnd the victim had not returned, and both
tlie photographer and the peoplo began to
'think that, alter he had the money safe in
his pocket he had changed his mind. Every
(-nt) left the lodge to start for home, and
just at that moment the ghostly annaritioii
reappeared ready for the fray, lie was
powdered all over with pblkaoots of yellow,
which made him look something like a hail
florin. His oniy clothing wus a breech oloth.
Lyingonhis baok on the ground, three or
four Indians sot about him and the operation
began, pinching the flesh between two fingers, it was pulled out and a knife run
through It. A small stick about two inches
.hmgwasrunin the incision, and that was
done. The same operation was repeated on
the back. To the latter a shield was fastened. A rawhldo lnriat doubled, hung
from the center pole, and one of these ends
was fastened to the stick in each breast.
Taking one in each hand, the candidate for
(honors yanked at them with all his might
Then leaning backwards, he threw his lull
'weight on tho ropes, aud suspending by the
sticks In his breast, danced tmckwurd and
, forward around the pole. Finally the flesh
'gave way, and he fell on the ground And
laid there, a full-fledged brave.
Before the operation began an old party
got out nnd counted the young man's coups.
The list wns not a very long one He stole
a gun, mid he stole some horses, and he stole
M>ine arrows, and probably regretted that he
had not stolen more while ho was about it.
.The old party did not relate how many
clothes-lines or hen-roost he hnd robbed.
The young man then blessed the old fellow,
threw his arms around the medicine pole
nml prayed to the sun.   This evidently put
hi i better spirits, and the show related
above proceeded.
Then, tired out every on* rushed forthe
wagons and snid good-bye to the Sun Dance,
pcli one vowing secretly that it was the
inst one thoy would ever go to, But thty
all said tbe same lost years
i vuiiTvuiiwsiui iiuaucr.

Matrimony in Grot-altttb
; The preacher Is invariably resorted io,
both by young men and maidens, as tht
matrimonial agent, A young man comts to
the missionary house and gays to him J
"I want lo marry."
"Whom V asked the tnlsatoMry, "Have
you any one in mind?1'
("Yes," answers the lover, "but she will
iot havo me* I want 70a to speak to
her."
!   "Have you not spoken for yourself V
I   "Many times, but she always says •No.'H
."That is nothing," says the pastor, *yo*j
'know tho ways of Maidens. Does sho like
lyou"
• "it is difficult to Ond ont, She will tell
lyou."
Tho pastor accordingly sends for the girl,
[who comes willingly enough, knowing what
the message means.
1   "Well, my daughter," he observes, "Hie
dime you should think of marriage."
"I never mean lo marry," is her invariable
rnd conventional answer.
''That is a pity"
cause! have a go
. "Who is he," she asks.
' The missionary then tells her his name—
although she knows it as well as ho does—
land launches out into thelovcr's praise. He
is strong, good looking, kindly* he caught
two tine whales when his companions took
none, or whatever else con be said to fate
repute.
r After the catalogue of Ml merits has bees
necited the girl replies, "But I think him 1
good-for-nothing,"
"Ah. well," sayi the missionary, "thou
art not wise. There is no lad that can fling,
-a harpoon ai ha can. I ihall soon find him
a wile."
He then wishes the girl good day, affecting to believe that the Interview was over,
But she is mre to linger, and alter a blush
and a sigh she whispers: "So it is particularly your wish, Mr. Pastor: I do not quite
like him," with a deep sigh, "but if you—"
At this point she virtually hands over the
business to the minister, who has to tell
her that she knows she loves the lad; that
the would not have come if she had not
thought of accepting him, and that nothing
is wanting, but to ask the blessing of God
upon the union.
The marriage, curiously enough, usually
fakes place upon the very day on which the
bride has emphatically protested tbat ihe
will not have the bridegroom.

Pe Useful.
- To ivery good and useful thing there are
always certain valid objections, whtch could
not be raised if that thing were any lcsi
good or useful ihau it Is, The quality (hat
gives to any person peculiar value in ont
place, or at one time, Is pretty sure to be the
vcrv quality that makes him just as peculiarly undesirable iu another place or at another time. Tho man of social disposition
is more likely to incommode others by un*
timely visits than the recluse who seldom
or never visits at all; but the recluse is correspondingly as useless a member of society
as ihe social man is useful. The man who
is capable of fervor when fervor Is needed, is
likely to be the man who is hot headed and
rash when coolness and deliberation an
needed; but society can batter put up with
rashness than It can get along without lerror*.
In the ripening of the summer grain thero H

can better afford to take tho risks of ran-
stroke than it can to be without grain. One
who would be useful in the world must take
Ihe risk of being an occasional auuoynaoe or
obstruction.

A pleasant story Is told ol King Humbert

During one of thoso solitary excursions ha
viw met by a peasant, who wai amaied and

vinged a covey of partridges. He oomplT*

lexi morning at daybreak, and kill a fox that
mil been stealing his chickens, he would not

King Humbert kept the appointment,
tilled the fox, ate breakfast with the family,
;nd received hii two francs, delighting tho
tumble family with hit good nature and

Two days afterward the peasant was att&f-

HOMAGE TO ASTASIA.
 , ■ •>-
Neitbor Luis Nor l'liryne, 1>Ut A Glorious
Woman With One Fault*
Abasia, with her email, arched feet, and
3*lorious wreaths of honey-colored hair, was
the loveliest as well as the most cultivated
woman of her time. The honor paid to
womanhood in its beauty, grace and intelligence culminated in Asposia, "With more
vivacity than Helen she was as fascinating,
ut love-inspiring.* Bhe bad every virtue but
one, nnd even Socrates forgave her tho want
of that one,
The C< reek ideal of beauty and mind matching oif-ii other—"In a fair body a fair soul
must dwell," says Soorntei—had its fullest
expression in Aspasin, tho beloved of Per*
ieles, himself the culmination of the most
beautiful and the moat honorable national
Ideal. She wns his teacher in eloquence, and
perfected his gift in verbal beauty. To her,
indeed, it was said, was really duo that
famous oration which he pronounced in
honor of those who fell In the Semian wnr,
us well ns other examples of that eloquence
which, "lliishingnndthunderiuglikeOlympin
Zeus, shook all Hellas.'' For her he broke
all other ties, and repudiated his wile that he
might be faithful only to her. For her, this
man, who ruled the noblest nation of the
time, bore meekly the sarcasms of the comic
poets, and humbled himself to the pcoiilo
whon she wns accused of impiety—plending
hor cause with prayers and tears, and winning
her pardon by tho very agony of his love.
For her he lived—for her and Athens, of
which she was as the human symbol. She
wns ids life, his love, his soul, his glory. Sho
gave hiin the best of her superb intelligence,
and helped him to be tbe man he was.
She was tho friend of Socrates, to whom
sho taught the inngie of her eloquence as she
taught it to Alulbiades; and her influence
over such men us these, who loved' and
honored her, of Itself proves her nobility of
nature, lletnirn she might be, but she wns
not corrupt It Is impossible that she could
have been a courtesan like Lais on Fhryne,
She must have been rather after the pattern
of a modern free lover—giving, not selling—
too surely not chaste, but us surely not infamous. She was learned lu the arts of tho
times, nnd wrote on the science of the cosine-
tics—nor two volumes, unhappily, burned in
the Alexandria library. It is not difficult to
picture her, half sitting, half reclining in the
shaded sido of the court whero tho fountain
splashes and tho roses bloom; where the
deft nnd graceful Lydian girl fans her with a
Phor-iiciuii fan and the tamo thrush sings
from the laurel boughs, which ore Its home,
and where the peacock, about which so much
slander hns gone forth, suns itself on tho
wall, brought from Its own artificial little
island to delight her with its beauty. Grouped
about nro Socrates and his friends, disputing
as usual on virtue and the gods, the soul,
beauty nud love. Pericles looks ather, his
eyes full of man's deepest passion; and
Aleibindes, too young yet to be a dangerous
rival, sits near hor, indulging in dreams
which mako him a willing one
'An Odd Custom in Athens,
A traveler meets with many customs In
strange countries, which commend themselves by their inquiries, but one in Athens
gives to modern Greece a reputation she
never enjoyed in her palmiest days. The
Greeks are notorious for their unreliability, and they break promises with perfect
disregard, knowing how easy it Is to make
another. Liveryjstublo keepers nre no worse
than other classes, but in this instnnee we
have to do with them. While in Athens
we were anxious to tako a drive; and to be
■ure of a carriage at the appointed time
we went the evening before to headquarters
and left our order, at the same time im*
pressing the proprietor with the importance
of prompt iicks. The next morning we were
ready at the hour, but no carriage had arrived. We waited an hour nnd stilt no ear-
riagt, and then we appealed to a friend,
who had lived a long time In Athens, tet'ln.**-;
him bow we hnd left our order tho 11,-nt
before, lie asked if we had duiii-nm. il a
forfeit ot tlie proprietor, and with miieli surprise we told him wo had not. lie 1 hen
informed us that It wai customary wt.eti
ordering a carriage, to insure thu order
being met, to require a forfeit of from i.i
to $5 from tho owner, as a reminder to hlm
that he hnd a contract to ful'lll. It was n
method of business so entirely new to up
that we could scarcely believe it possible,
bnt we concluded to try it, and Went nil on
a ueond hunt for a vehicle, This time we
demanded our forfeit, and it wus given us
Without hesitation, aud promptly at thu
hour lot the carriage was ready for us and
we took our drive. In paving for It the
forfeit was included in the bill, and the entire trnusuction went off as if thnt wore the
only proper way to do business, and wc
wero very unbusinesslike persjns to have
thought otherwise. It goes without snyinij
that the Greeks have, much more contj.
dence in strangers than is common inoiiier
countries, for all we gave for our forfeit
wai a form of receipt, valuable only as a
louvenir, in case we desired to run away
with the money.

Pureuant to promise yesterday, we
print below tho suggestions of cannery
representatives re amended fisheries
regulations. Theae suggestions were
made on a draft uf proposed fishery
regulatiuns drawn up by t.ho department at Ottawa, and submitted in tlie
first place by Mr. Mowat, inspector of
iisliorics, to a meeting of the Salmon
Packers Association of Fraser River,
held at this city on tho 8th of November last. The draft referred to has
been substantially embodied in the
new fishery regulations published
yesterday, so that the figures below
may bo taken as referring to the
different sections of that document:
Section 1, which we will not repeat,
as it may be found in yesterday's Co*
LL-MBiAJT, was approved by the Fraser
River packers.
2, That section 2 bo amended to
read, "Meshes of drift-nets used for
capturing salmon ahall be not less than
5| inches in extension: Provided always
that the minister of marine and fisheries
may order a larger mesh to be used at
such times and places as mny be necessary fur the proper protection of the
fisheries."
3. That section 3 be amended to
read, "Drifting with salmon iietsslii.il
bo confined to tidal waters, und drift-
nuts shall not be fished so as tu obstruct mure than two-thirds of the
width of any river."
Section 4 uf tho draft was amended
su as to rend, "Fishing for salmon
shall bo discontinued from Saturday
in-on till (I *** ui. Sunday,"
Section 5, substantially tho same as
published yesterday, wns approved by
the meeting.
6. It is also recommended that "No
nets with meshes uf less extension
than 7-j* inches be used on Fraser
River between the 25th of August and
the loth of September; and that there
may be nn annual cluse season for
rivers, throughout the province,
from the 20th cf October till the 1st of
February."
This last section wns added by the
Fraser Rivor salmon packers themselves, and in communicating the
result of their deliberations tu Mr.
Mowat, fisheries inspector, they subjoined the following amplification:
You will observe that our association is fully in accord with the general tenor of the proposed regulations
of the fishery department and has
only recommended the making of a
few minor alterations, the propriety
of which we believe will be suggested
to you as soun as they nro brought tu
your notice. To recapitulate, uur
recommendations in brief are:
1st. That in section 2 uf the draft of
proposed fishery regulations the words
"fivo and three quarter inches" be substituted for tho words "six inches" ns
the least extension size ot mesli in
drift nets to be used for capturing
salmon. It may be well to remind
the fishery department thnt our salmon
are variable in size, averaging much
smaller somo years than others, and
that while a six inch mesh may catch
well occasionally, at other limes it has
been found quite too largo for satisfactory results.
2nd. That in section 3 the words
"more than two-thirds" be substituted
for the words "one-third."
3rd, Refetring to sectiun 4 of the
propused fishery regulations our association recommends that the weekly
close time remain as at present from
Saturday noon till 6 p. m. Sunday.
To increase this time would be equally
vexatious to salmon packers and fishermen. The loss of fish to the furmer,
nnd of timo to the latter by a longer
enforced idleness wuuld largely diminish the profits of both parties.
It must be remembered nlso that
the period uf idleness every week is a
season of temptation to the fishermen,
and while there are many honorable
exceptions great numbers spend the
close time in gambling and drunkenness, which, in addition to the injury
dono tu themselves, is a source of great
loss to the canners, as the men are
often incapable of resuming work for
several days after theso times uf debauchery. It is believed a better protection will be given tho salmon by
providing, aa stated in clause 6 above,
that no nets with less than 7£ inch
meshes shall be used from the* 25th
of August to the 15th of September, as
this will enable all sockeyes then going
up the river to reach their spawning
grounds without hindrance. A further protection to tho salmon is suggested in the conclusion of the aamo
clause by having a close season from
the 20th of October till the 1st of
February. The association while making the above recommendations wish
it to be understood thnt thoy refer
only to Fraser River, It is quite
possible that different regulatiuns
would be more suitable for other
wntors in the province.
Respectfully yours,
E. A. Wadham, Sec.
At a meeting held nt the Board uf
Trade rooms, Victoria, on tho 27th of
Novembor last, at which the Gibing
interests of the whole province wero

Fraser River, the inspector of fish*
cries alio being present, the draft
from Ottawa was considered, aud also
the recommendations on that document of the Salmon Packers Association of Fraser River, and tho action
of tho Fruer River packers approved
and adopted, without amendment.
Subsequently, as stated yesterday, tho
Viotoria Board of Trade und the Westminster Board of Trade npproved of
the notion of the canners and packers

recommendations from the various
bodies mentioned have been forwnided
to Ottawa accordingly. It will be

ONCE AGAIN
Thn Ratepayers of Westmhistrr
Meet and Signify tholr Approval
of fhe Southern Railway
Project.
A Pleasant Meeting- at Which Discussion in Fair and a Way is
Found to   Insure the
Railway.
Last night some 500 citizens and
ratepayers of Westminster gathered at
tho Drill Shed iu response to a call of
the mayor for a public meeting to discuss railway matters. Tho meeting
was conspicuously different from any
previously held in connection with
railway matters, and a most urdoriy
and dignified course uf proceeding was
observed throughout. Mayor Dickinson was elected to the chair aud Cut.
McGregor wus chosen to net as secretary.
His worship explained that ttie meeting had been called to aee whether or
not the Southern Railway was tu be
built to Westminster, Ono thing, he
said, was certain: the Southern would
not come to Westminster unless substantial action was taken by tho meet*
ing. Ho hoped no hard words would
bo used and invited free discussion of
thu subject in hand.
Mr. Thos. Cunningham wus called
on and touk the platform. He had
hoped after the last mooting that nothing further would be necessary in connection with railway matters, but
though publio opinion spoke plainly
on that occasion other influences had
been at work and now another stop
was necessary. The city had been
trying for 7 years to get connection
with the American railway system and
that connection must bu obtained.
Fow seemed to know tbo value of railroads. The C.P.R. branch lino to
West minster was opposed by mnny, but
see of what immense value it has been,
Westminster had no controversy with
the O.P.R. and wanted nunc, but we
must have an alternative route and
connection with the south. As a
member uf the board of trade he had
worked hard in tho interests of the
city, and it was in these interests that
arrangements had been made whereby
tbe Southern Railway Co. was formed.
The Railway Company had entered
into agreements with C. M. Sheafe &
Uo. to build the read. Now it was
said C. M. Sheafo & Co. were "men of
straw." He was in a position to know
that Mr. Oanfield was worth between
8350,000 and 8400,000; besides which
Mr. Oanfield is married to a niece of
President-Elect Harrison, which meant
capital also. C. M. Sheafe & Co. took
hold uf tho work immediately after;
the passing of the bylaw and since
then hnd expended in cash somo $05,*
000. All debts contracted had been
regularly paid and no complaints hnd
been heard in this direction. Some
said thero was boodio in the scheme—
ho did not believe there was 25 cent's
worth of boodle in it. Some thought
the $150,000 bonus would build the
road to the boundary whilo in reality
the estimated cost for that distance is
$405,000. Speaking of boodling, he
wanted to know if anyone would connect tho names uf Mr. Hendry, Mr.
Ewen, Mr. Douglas, Mr. Trapp and
such gentlemen with any dishonest
scheme (applause nnd cries of nol no!)
Mr. Cunningham here read the agreement between tho Southern Railway
Company and 0. M. Sheafe & Co.,
which he considered au excellent ar*
bo confidently louked for,
rangoment and as fair and holiest as it
lie

could bo. Every point was guarded
by'the agreement und ho considered it
worth $500,000 to the city. In bonus-
ing this road the city is safe nnd there
need be not the slightest fenr or
concern. Ho hnd personally gone
over the whole affairs of the company
and after minute inspection be had
come to the conclusion that arrangements were all good nnd fair, and that
the promoters of the road wero the
truest friends Westminster had. So
far the company had kept all its promises and he wondered if Westminster
was going back on ita word (cries of
no! no!) The great concessions in the
shape of water lota and land aro not so
vory important, as they revert to the
city at the end of a term of years. Concluding, Mr. Cunningham said: "Now
gentlemen it remains with you to say
whether the Southern Railway is to
come to New Westminster or go elsewhere. You haye got to say yes or no
to-night and say it emphatically. The
members of the Southern Railway
company aro deeply pledged and it is
necessary for them to protect their
own Interests." (Great applause.)
Mr, D. S. Curtis was next called on
and spoke briofly and clearly to the
point. He had nut, as was well known,
swallowed all that hsd been said about
tho road, but a few days ago ho had
awukened to the fact thnt the city
was in a very serious position regarding tho railroad. It wns thought
that the injunctcrs were satisfied with
Betting aside the trust but he had ascertained such was not the caso and
they wero now holding another threat
over our heads to work against the
intorest of the railwny scheme when
the next onward move is made. Con-
tinuing Mr. Curtis said:—"I believe
in my heart that the Southern Railway
people are working directly in the interests of tho city. After giving the
subject mature deliberation 1 find it
impossible that tha oity cau lose one
cent on tho agreements reached. Suppose Sheafo & Co. are "men of straw,"
as some peoplo say, and supposing after a certain amount of work is done
iho contractors were unablo to finish
it, what would be the result? The
road as far as completed would becume
the property of tho city nnd that without the loss of a cent. What would
wo lose by that? in tho name of common sense what do wo want? Do wo
want the road to be running in good
order 99 years beforo paying the money
over? Now, in order to ensure the
Jju'ldingof the road and prevent further
trouble wo havo got to go bondsmen
individually thnt tho provisions of the
agreement will be carried out." (Great
applause),
Mr, B. Douglas, president of the
Southern Railway Co. took a seaton
the platform amidst thunders of applause.
- His worship asked anyone who j
wished to question Mr. Douglas on
railway matters to como forward aud
do so. He believed the agreements to
be a fair and square transaction, and
said:—-"If nothing comes out of this
mooting Now Westminster will be aet
back for ten years and you know what
that means, but if the people aro will-
inir to give a bond that the money will
be paid as per agreement that is all
the oompany asks and they will be
satisfied. A great many important
matters aro at stake. If the road does
not como to Westminster the Royal
City Mills will probably be removed
to some ether point and aome other
important projects will be turned else*
whore. Wo must fight for progression
and not retrograde. We have an enterprising neighbor and muat work ac
cordingly. I would like Mr. Higgins
to come forward and toll some of the
advantages the road will bring." (Ap-
plnuso).
Mr. iiiu'giiis—"When I came down
the river to-day it was not for the
purpose uf attending this meeting but
tu make arrangements fur building a
second mill. A year ago 1 sounded
the channel and found 24 feet of water;
now there is 2lH feet of water,
and that gives ui what we .wanted,
Westminster now offers eveiy facility
ns a shipping port, but in order that it
become such we must have the Southern Railway. I have tried- to help
the city in every way and hnve succeeded in bringint? capital here. If
the railroad is built 1 know of two
inure mills which will be located at
New Westminster."   (Applause).
His Wonhip asked what the meeting
was going to do. (Ories of Railroad 1
Railroad !) There waa a proposition
that the citizens give a bond that the
bonus will be paid to the company
when it has been earned.
Mr. Jacques was loudly called for
and after making a few remarks proposed the following bond to meet the
occasion nnd ensure the building of
the road:
Know all men by these presents that
we the undersigned, all residents of the
city of New Westminster, in the province of British Columbia, and ratepayers
of the said city are firmly held and severally bound unto the New Westminster
Southern Railway Company, their successors ond assigns In the sums set opposite our names respectively, for which
payment to be well and truly mode, we
bind ourselves, our and each of our heirs, I
executors and administrators firmly by
these presents. Dated the twentieth day
of December, A. D., 1888.
Now the condition of this obligation is
such that if the corporation of the city
of New Westminster pay or cause to be
paid to the said company, the sum of
|150,000 voted by the **Steam Ferry Bylaw, 1888," and the "Workshops By-law,
1888," of the Bald city upon the completion of the work according to the terms
of the said by-laws, then this obligation
to be null and void, otherwise, to remain
in full force and virtue.
Provided, however, that if the amount
of the said sums below written shall exceed in the aggregate the sum of (150,-;
000, then tho Bums to bo duo under this
obligation shall be due pro-rata, so that
the Baid aggregate shall not exceed the
Baid sum of $160,000.
Provided further that unless a majority
of the ratepayers of tho said city shall
sign thia obligation, that tho same shall
bo void. Dated this twentieth day of
December, A, D., 1S88.
Tho mayor stated that if this bond
was given it wuuld save tho city somo
84,000 or 95,000 in interost.
Mr. Beors asked if it was tho intention to get a majority of the ratepayers
to sign the bond.
The mayor: "I bolieve that is the
intention. The people gave a similar
bond when the O.P.R. branch line
was built,''
His worship then called for names
and tho following gentlemon responded:—
