NOTES AKD COMMENTS.
This jewel is taken {rom the
Jeweler.' Weekly: "Did that lady
buy anything t" asked the jeweler of
his new boy, as the lady in question
left the store, apparently in a temper. "Sho did not. She asked me
for an old gold breastpin, and I
asked her if she took this store for a
junk-shop.   Then she went out."
'A London correspondent of an
eastern paper refers to the approaching marriage of the Governor-
General's son in the following terms:
"What is called, in tho strictest
teohnicology of the upper ten
thousand, a very great matoh will be
brought to a happy culmination at
the Guards' chapel on the 8th of
January, when the eldest. son of
Lord Stanley of Preston will be
married to Lady Alice Montague,
youngest daughter of the Duke of
Manchester. Tlie importance of
the match lies in the fact that the
bridegroom, in the natural order of
things, will succeed, not only to his
father's barony, but also to the
great earldom of Derby, to which
Lord Stanley of Preston is heir
presumptive. The marriage has
excited great interest, for both the
parties are first favorites in society.'
Lady Alice has two sisters—one is
Duchess of Hamilton and the other
Countess of Gosford."

A census of the illiterates of the
world, recently published in the

three Sclavic states of Boumauia,
Servia, and Russia at the head of
the list, with about 80 per cent of
the population unable to read and
Write. Of the Latin-speaking noes,
Spain heads the list with 63 per
cent, followed by Italy with 48 per
cent, France and Belgoim having
about IS per cent. The illiterates
in Hungary number 43 per oent, in
Austria 39, and in Ireland 21. In
England we find 13 per cent, Hoi-
land 10 per cent, United States
(white population) 8 per cent, and
Scotland 7 per cent, unable to read
and write. When we como to the
purely Teutonic states, we find
marked reduction in tho percentage
of illiterates. The highest is in

Sweden, Denmark, Baveria, Baden,;

no one who cannot road' and write!

tured what was thought to bo a
marvellous sensation lately, _ This
was a story to the effect that a short
time ago a coffin had been found
in a cavity of a "wall at Holyrood
Palace in Edinburgh. In the
coffin were the remains of an infant
wrapped in a cloth of gold, on
which was the letter I. On investigation the wondrous talo haa been
divested of much of its interest In
the first place it is over half a century old. A box containing human
bones was indeed discovered in
Holyrood about 1830, but as an
examination threw no light upon
tho find, the relic was restored to
its resting place, and tho aperture
closed up. Fifty years have passed,
and no ono now seems to know
exactly the spot where the discovery
was mado, so quickly an facts of
this sort forgotten, and so easily do
they become part of many indistinct legends which cling around
old places. This particular mystery
must therefore remain a mystery
still.	
A lato despatch in an American
paper gives the following interesting details re the present and future
occupants of the White House:
President Cleveland and the President-elect Harrison have, since the
election, been dignified and friendly.
It will be remembered that a short
time after the election tho beautiful
mistress of the White House, Mn.
Cleveland, wrote a letter to Mrs.
Harrison, and gave the future mistress of the executive mansion a
pressing invitation that when she,
with her husband, came to Wash,
ington, she spent the days preceding
the inauguration as her guest.'
After it was a certainty that Mr.
Harrison had been elected, President Cleveland wrote a letter to his
successful opponent, extending to
him congratulations on the result of
the election which would make him
the president's successor. This
naturally and properly brought forth
ii pleasant reply from the future
president. Since that time a very
pleasant correspondence has been
carried on between tho two distinguished men. Some of Mr. Harrison's letters have been in the nature
of inquiries regarding the daily
routine of the office, together with
many other things which Gen.
Harrison would naturally desire to
bo informed.upon. Mrs. Harrison
has also been in weekly correspondence with Mrs. Cleveland with
roferenoo to many household affairs,
which a woman pf Mrs. Harrison's
domestic thoughtfulneu and care
would deem important to know.
It is said by those who seem to
speak from knowledge of past
changoa of White House occupants,
that more friendly relationship with
outgoing and incoming, families
never existed,

HEHIOC3   RAILWAY   COLLISION.
Akron, Ohio, Jan. 14.—The east-
bound passenger train on the N. Y. P.
& Ohio Road collided with a freight
train at Tallmadge early this morning.
It is aaid live persons were killed, including Engineer Huntington and
Fireman Shultz, and 23 injured. The
passenger train had two sleepers in
which many were injured, some fatally.
Physicians have gone from here. It
is uid that a number of Ohinamen
travelling in the amoking car an missing and are suppoied to be buried in
the wreck. Many persons were more
or leu seriously injured, but their
names have not yet been learned. The
accident was due to the breaking apart
of the freight train. A flagman had
been back and mistook his signals and
and returned to the train too aoon.
The wreck of the train was terrible
and the track was piled high with debris. It is feared that several of those
injured will die.
THE TIMES HOMBDGOKD.
Buctalo, N. Y., Jan. 14.—The Courier publishes a number of letters and
telegrams written by a special detective
from Scotland Yard, sent out in the
interest of the London Times to procure
evidence to implicate Parnell in the
Phoenix Park murder, and in connection
with them a Btory to this effect: In
August last a mechanic living near here
conceived the idea of making something
out of the Times and wrote to the publisher stating that he knew of two
Irishmen who were in possession of
documentary evidence that would prove
the letters on which tho Times relied in
the present investigation, to be perfectly
genuine. .The detective reached New
York and corresponded with the mechanic. The latter secured from him
several sums of money amounting in all
to about $500, but finally the detective
became suspicious as the alleged documents were not forthcoming and refused
to pay out anything more. There was,
of course, no evidence whatever of the
nature sought,

samoan matters.
Washinoton, Jan. 12—The examination of Consul Sewell of the Samoan
Islands was continued before a subcommittee of the senate committee on foreign
relations this morning. Scwell's testimony was in the samo light aa that
given by him yesterday. He showed
that while the German government was
negotiating with tho state department
and the British minister in Washington,
on the plea of wishing to reach a
harmonious agreement of the islands, the
German fleet was Bent to Samoa to depose the king and tako possession of the
country. The state department was
aware of tliis outrageous breach of international courtesy, but declined to inter
fere or take stops to resent the affront
put upon the U. B.
YANKEES FORM THE TAIL END.
Washington, Jan. 12.—In the house
to-day, on the diplomatic and consular
appropriation bill being proceeded with,
Mr. Macadoo, of New Jersey, said ho
could not allow the hill to pass withont
emphasizing what he considered to be the
popular demand for abolishing United
States mlsisters abroad. One of the great
countries of Europe was unrepresented
by a minister in this country. The British government had refrained from sending a minister to Washington for the purpose of resenting what it considered to
be an insult. Ninety-nine per cent, of our
people did not know or care whether
England sent a minister or not, and the
interests of the United States would not
Buffer if it did not send a minister to England or anywhere else It was the most
absurd thing to his mind that the United
States should send a minister to the royal
courts. They came in at the tail end of
the bespangled, befeathond and bedizened diplomats of the world. The system
was absolutely unfitted to the character
of a freo country, Mr, Macreary, of
Kentucky, wm not prepared to say that
tho diplomatic service should be abolished. The United State, had had many
distinguished men to represent tt abroad
who had reflected muoh credit upon the
country. The appropriation bill then
passed,

There wss a lively scrap at a political meeting in Provoncher, Man., Friday night. Cyr, one of tho speakers,
referred to La Riviere, the Conservative candidate, as an embezzler, thief,
etc. . La Riviere called him a liar and
struck at Cyr, but tho latter was too
muqh for Norquay's ox-treasurer, nnd
knocked him against n blackboard,
which fell upon his head and buried
him beneath it. H. J. Clarke will
probably be brought out by tho Conservatives, who are disgusted with La
Riviere.
The tail end of the oyclono whioh
struck Western Ontario on Wednesday
night reached Montreal about midnight on Friday. It played sad havoc
with chimneys, tolegraph poles and
wires, and it will take weeks to restoro
telegraph communication. Four housos
were* unfoofed at Moulinette on the
Cornwall Canal, and Oscar Barwick,
Jr., was killed by a falling chimney.
At Renfrew every farm was rased and
forty head of cattle killed.. At Trenton, Gilmour's Mills wen damaged to
the extent of $60,000 and the Queen's
Hotel was unroofed. The bridge from
Trenton to Gilmour was swept away
and one Allen drowned. It is estimated the damage done by the storm
in Ontario and Quebec aggregated $2,-
000,000.

That some interest has at last been
aroused in municipal election matters is clearly demonstrated by the
fact that a lively contest has been
insured in the election of aldermen
by the additional ticket that lias
been brought out, and by the fact
that some of the city's best men
have been placed in nomination on
both tickets. Wo have spoken
favorably of the first ticket for aldermen that was mentioned, but
have urged upon candidates generally thst, in justice to themselves as
well aa the electors, they should give
a publio individual expression of
their views, and intentions if elected,
either through the press or on the
platform. Before nomination is obviously the time to do so in the first
instance, for, as a correspondent in
these columns has aptly remarked,
only one tioket may be nominated,
giving the electors no further choice,
A few of the candidates have expressed themselves in the public
print, but the example has not been
generally followed. Now, that a
contest is on, however, there will be
ample time, if taken advantage of,
for the various candidates to define
their views, and this the electors
must insist upon in some form or
other, as they have to make a choice
from a number of apparently equally
eligible aspirants for aldermanic
honors. Important issues are at
stake, of which the Southern Bail-
way question, involving as it does
other momentous interests connected
with our future well-being, is undeniably the most important. There
are other questions, too, that will
require the attention of the best
men that we can intrust with the
city's affairs during the current
year, Uood men and true are urgently needed at this juncture, and
upon the electors is the responsibility of selecting them fiom those who
have been placed in nomination today. While a publio expression it
desirable from overy candidate, the
electors will be guided in their
ohoice as well by tbe estimate which
they place upon the sincerity of
these expressions and by what they
know of the character and general
standing and leanings of the different men who seek their sufferages.
We shall not undertake to indicate
just who should receive the confidence and support of the ratepayers.
Some of the ablest and best men of
our city are in tho field, and it is
the duty of each elector to study
tho matter carefully, and, irrespective of any party or clique, and
without personal favoritism or prejudice, to cast an honest vote, according to his own convictions, in
the city's best interests,
Considerable  interest  has  been
aroused, and some nice points raised,
by the Vancouver  quarantine  ein-
broglio  of last week.   Our readers
are already familiar with the principal outlines of the affair that
caused such a stir at the salt water
terminus—how that the steamship
Premier,   released   from  a week's
quarantine by the quarantine officer,
Dr. Jackson, at Victoria, acting under instructions from Ottawa,   was
refused  a   landing   by  the  oivic
authorities of Vancouver,   working
nnder their health by-law, and that
when Oapt. Irving, with the  Islander, had removed the Premier's passengers to his boat, he also was  debarred from landing.   The  spirited
conflict between the two authorities
—the steamer having a clean bill of
health, and the city, assuming that
that   bill   had   been    improperly
granted, und resisting accordingly,
in   what  was  deemed to be in the
interests of the public health—has
alto  been  reported to our readers.
Eye-witnesses of the scene ut Vancouver's docks on Saturday—when
constables, specials, and an excited
populace fought like tigers  to prevent  the  Islander   boarding   the
wharves, and bloodshed wat barely
avoided—will not toon forget the
incident   What will be the upshot
of the whole matter, it is impossible
at present to predict   It has been
stated that there were irregularities
and undue influence in procuring the
clean bill of health on one side, and
overstepping  the bounds of oivic
authority  on  the other.   An incident that will require some explanation on the part of Vancouver is,
how they could  consistently allow
anyone to land from   the  Islander,
■ whioh wts.done in the caso of  Mr.
and Mfs.'Band, who came off in  a
small boat, and prevent other pas.
terigert from landing.   It would also have been more creditable for the
"empire city" if tho constables and
■peows oould have lustainedtho
civic arrthcfi*y, without the inter-
ventlotYofiwhtrk-mt very much like
»iaa^l*ait*ind**'theolrcumstances,
there *»%.**erlMi>*, **-**e excuse for
fa<be^.^,:,iwlttib unity-
one-mlndedneM-aisplayed was at
least admirable *•*■■■ worthy- of imi-
tatie* by oth.r communities in dif-
ftrtot matters.   One thing that has
beta very clearly demonstrated  by
the  whole  quarantine aflair, from
first to last, i" a*0  inotBcieticy, not
another, of the quarantine authori
ties in this province. No clear ideas
appear to have been possessed by
them as to their duty, and a great
deal of time was lost telegraphing
to Ottawa for instructions, and a
policy of delay and vacillation observed throughout If the " late
unpleasantness " shall result in the
establishment of a belter understanding between the department at Ottawa and the subordinates here, in
the matter of quarantine, the memorable emeute of Saturday at Vanoouver will not have been in vain.
A suggestive paper by Dr, 0. E.
Busey, of Iflrachbourg, was lately
read before the Medical Society of
Virginia, says the Now York Medi
cal Journal, Or. Busey stated as a
well known fact that those nations
which were given to tbe cultivation
of vocal music were strong, vigorous
races, with broad, expansive ehests.
If an hour was daily devoted in our
public schools to the development of
vocal music, continued the essayist,
there would not be the sad spectacle
of tho drooping, withered, hollow-
chested, round-shouldered children.
There was too great a tendency to
sacrifice physical health upon tho
altar of learning. Vocal music was
a gymnastio exercise of the lungs by
development of the lung tissue itself. The lungs in improved breeds
of cattle, which naturally took little
exercise and were domiciled much of
the time, were considerably reduced
in size when compared with those of
animals running at liberty; and so
it was with the human race, which
led inactive lives from civilization.
Phthisis, or consumption, generally
began at the apices or extreme points
of the lungs, because these parts
were more inactive, and because
the bronchial tubes were so arranged
tbat they carried the inspired air
with greater facility to the bases
than to the apices. During inactivity a person would ordinarily breathe
about 480 cubic inches of air in a
minute. If he walked at the rate
of six miles an hour, he would
breathe 3,260 cubic inches. In
singing, this increased more than in
walking, as to sing well required all
the capacity of the lungs. The instructor of vocal music, in addition
to his musical education, should understand the anatomy and physiology
of the respiratory organs.
This is the age, pre-eminently, of
improvements in means of locomotion, by land, water, and even
air—although with, respect to the
latter, more in theory than practice
as yet. One of the lutest notions
is'to do away with horses and propel wagons by means of gas generated from benzine. The lUuslrirte
Zeitung gives the following description of the invention: At the
exhibition of machinery which wns
held in Munich during the past year,
tho attention of the visitor was attracted to a vehicle with a motor
constructed by the Bhine Gas Motor
Works, Benz & Oo., of Mannheim.
The motor is driven by gas which
it generates from benzine or analogous material The motor, which
is not visible from the outside, is
placed in the rear of the three-
wheeled carriage over the main
axle, and the benzine used in its
propulsion is carried in a olosed
copper receptacle secured under the
seat, from which it passes drop
by drop to the generator, and
which holds enough benzine for a
journey of about 75 miles. The gas
mixture is ignited in a olosed cylinder by means of an electric spark—a
very safe and reliable arrangement.
After regulating the admission of
the gas, the motor can be started by
simply turning a hand lever. The
operator climbs upon the seat and,
by pressing the lever at his left, sets
the motor into operation, and it
starts the vehicle, being connected
with the back wheels. The speed
of the motor can be increased or
diminished at will by turning tbe
lever backward or forward, and it
can be stopped by pulling on tbe
lever. The vehicle is steered in the
same manner as a tricycle, by a
small front wheel. It can attain a
speed of about ten miles an hour,
but in crowded streets it can be
made to move as slow as an ordinary
vehicle. A quart of benzine is suf-
ficent for an hour's trip, making the
cost of the motive power about
seven cents per hour, and the experiments with the vehicle in tbe
streets of Munich during the exhibition proved the practicability of
substituting this kind of motive
power for the more expensive horse
power in many cases.

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Electors cf New Westminster City:
Ladies and Gbntlemej*,—
At tho request of a number of friends I
have consented lo plaoe my name in
nomination for the position of alderman
nt tbe coming election, fully realising the
Importance and duties of the office. If
elected I wilt endeavor to the best of my
ability, to place our cily in tho front rank
of the cities of B, C. The following -im*
portaut questions will have my careful
attention: ,.,,!,, ......
1. Railway.—1 will use every legitimate
means ln my power to bring to a successful termination the building and completion of theSouthern Railroad,und will
treat liberally any projected railway
which may wish to run Into our eity,
always carefully guarding the best Interests of the city. And itls my opinion
If we are true to ourselves and bury any
little differences tbat may exist and work
shoulder to shoulder, we can make New
Westminster the greatest railway center
and most Important oity between Seattle
and Alaska.
2. Water Supply.—I am ln favor of the
city owning lta own waterworks, for there
Is a very large revenue to be derived from
this source, ff properly conducted, andjf
oleoted, I will atonce take up this question
and deal with It on business principles,
Water rate debentures when issued, near
their own value and will not bo one dollar's tax on the ratepayers,
8. Sewerage,—This Is one of the most
important questions that the new oouncil
win bave to grapple with, and, as there Is
bound to be a large emigration here this
year, it behooves us to no alive and get
our city well advanced so as to keep away
those dread diseases whioh we so mercifully escaped lost year. And 1 have no
doubt if you elect the right men asoheme
can bo got up wneroby the city can be
properly sowered.nnd the revenuederlvod
from the sale of water be made to pay the
Intercut and sinking fund for both water
works and Boweroge.
4. Stbebts —Somothlng must he done
at once to open up all streets in the city
so as to give workingmen and mechanics
a chance to get to their lots and buildings,
and, If elected, I will give tbls subject my
careful attention and hearty support.
s. City Kali..—If any proposition Is
brought forward for the erection of a suitable city hall, and If tho finances of tbe
city will allow U, I will glvo It my warm*
est support.
fl. Street Lighten**.—I will favor the
extending and improving of our system of
street lighting, for there Is no doubt it will
stand considerable Improvement.
7, Park.—In order to make the coming
agricultural show a success we must put a
portion of the oity park ln a fit condition
with suitable buildings, etc If elected I
will do my beat to make the grounds a
eredlt to the royal city, I am also in favor
of removing the unsightly stumps on
Albert Crescent and planting a few shade
trees to rcplaco tho stumps. Nature has,
done much for our city and It only wants
touching up a little to make It perfect.
8, Pviimc Library,—There is no doubt
a new building Is wanted to replace the
di-lnpldutod one now occupying a valuable lot, and there Is no doubt ln my mind,
but that a suitable one could be erected
with stores undorneath nnd library above;
and the rents from said stores would mora
than pay tor Interest and sinking fund,
and leave a balance tor keeping the library In proper condition.
9, MANTJKACTORERS.-I Will   fnCOUfagO
any manufacturers that contemplate starting business in this city, treating them
Ina liberal manner, and will uso ovary
eflbrtto show them the advantage of doing
business here. It Is well known tbat manufactures are tbe backbone of any eity.
10, Communications.—I will urge upon
our representative the necessity of tbe
Dominion government su bald U Ing ajdally
boat between here and Richmond ana
also between here nnd Ladners Landing.
We must also get better connections with
the surrounding district.
11, Letter Boxes.-I will also ondonvor
to havo the postal authorities supply and
put In placo letter boxes In tbe suburbs
of Ibe oity.
12,1 will also urge on our city member
the necessity of having the local government place a sum of money in this year's
estimates to pnt the North Arm road lut
Ut condition for travel.
18, Street naming and Numijeeinq.-
If elected I will urge upon my colleagues the necessity or havfng our streets
properlynamed and buildings numbered,
as Is always done In well-regulated cities.
In fact, any project that mny bn brought
up for advancing tbe interests of the eity
will have my ■ areful attention and hearty
support,
e ray ■ aref u I attention and hearty
I remain,
Your Obedient Servant,
E. S. SCOULLAR.

-   (flitkm mm! Crime.
I It is conceivable that mesmerism might
injure an invalid. If he have heart-disease,
for instance, an exciting or violent episode,
a rapture of joy or a'oonvnlsion of great
grief or fear,it mifbt prove injuriouBor
even fatal* jut aa if might in hia normal
condition. .     ■•*■■■&-■■.        ' "
Thii pouifcility, writes V7. A. Croffut in
tho Uorth American Bwkw, ia abundantly
offset by tbe value of mesmerism aa a therapeutic agent. The rosponaivo can be made
so intoxicated on water, which ho has been
told ia whisky, aa to exhibit all symptoms
of extreme inebriety; can be made disgustingly sea-sick by being told that ho is at
sea in a atorm, aud can beatonce physically
affected by an imaginary [medicine. Hia
temperature can be changed, hia eye dilated
and his pulso quickened. Mesmerism fa aa
perfect an on-esthetic as ether, and aa
harmlesa as water. Any mesmerized person can at onco, bv a single stroke of tbe
hand) be rendered totally Insensible to
pain, andean bave a tooth drawn, a cataract
removed, a cancer out out, or an arm eut
off without feeling the slightest pain. This
has beon so often demonstrated that amputations frequently tako place under its influence in tho Paris hospitals, and it is successfully employed in obstetrics. Though
only a fraction of patients wili be found
eligible aa candidates for thil annihilator of
pain, iti utility is so obvious it can not be
lonj* before medical societies will take up
the therapeusis of mesmerism as a serious
study, and army surgeons will be required
to have as practical a knowledge of it as of
any part of the pharmacopoeia.
It la quite erroneous to suppose tbat tho
conduct of tho responsive Ib directed in de*
tail by tbe operator. Be only suggests the
genoral line of thought,and each responsive
pursues it according to his own knowledge,
experience or prejudices. I Bay to my responslves, for instance, that I have a wonderful educated cow with seven heads,
They all want to soo it I call their attention to tha imaginary stable door near by)
they look toward it, and when I snap my
fingers they all see a seven hooded cow
enter. Now, by questioning them it becomes obvious tbat they all Bee a different
cow. Unless I have designated her color
one sees a whito cow, another a red cow,
ud so on,
Then I tell them that she oan dance, can
waltz and keep time with music. I hand
one a cane, telling him it is a flute, and that
he is an eminent performer, and he goes
through tlie moUonsoofpIaying to the dancing cow. They hear different tunes, but the
exhibition Is satisfactory. I now add tbat
tho cow can sing—ean sing a different part

onee. At' thla point there is some incredulity expressed. They see the cow
stand up on her hind legs and heal* tbe
seven ballads—and this, I may cs woll add,
is the narrative of an actual experiment
Five of the six mesmerized persons belioved that Bhe Rang. "Sho is singing'Tit

"I hear singing," said the inctcdulous
one, turning to me. " -Annie Laurie,' irsn't
ltf Bow do you work her—tlie machinery,
I meant"
The others laughed at him. "Why, tho
cow sings," said a young lady. "Can't you
hear her sing?  Cau't you see ner sing!"
"She looks as if Bho sang," conceded Incredulous. "I can see her mouths move all
around. Sho sounds as if she sang; but she
doesn't sing.  Cows don't sing."
"Very well, what is it, then," asked one
of tho others. .-.. vliqnKvir;
"A tube ond o hole In the floor," said Incredulous, "or perhaps ventriloquism,"
"Awl" exclaimed tho first, derisively,
"ventriloquism does not work like that I've
made a study ol ventriloquism,"
"Well, I've mode a study of a cow I" persisted the scoffer, obstinately.
Sometimes I turn the responslves into
children and havo them play school with in-
i finite funt somo times transport them over
ocean to Africa or.. Japan on tbo enchanted
i carpet, where for a brief space they enjoy
all tbe delights of travel; somotimes wo
participate in battles, id political campaigns,
in exciting tirade nnd sometimes Socrates,
« Moses or Confucius is Introduced and interviewed, the intelligent responsive furnish-
' Lug both questions and answers iu a curious
1 dual action of the mind that is highly entertaining.
Not only the -reason sometimes rebels as
above, but the conscience also.
A young lady, one of the brightest sensitives I havo ever seen, steadfastly refuses
to play cards. I tell her she is Buffalo Bill,
and easily induce hor to assume his character, but when card! are suggested; "No,
I never play cards. It is wrong!" she
says, and I can not move her. I could
I make her jump out through the window,
or put her hands in the firo, but play cords
she will not. I was puzzled by it till, inquiring, I ruoertained that her religious
' parents had brought hor up vory strictly
and taught her it was "wicked to play
cards."
And this brings ns to the question muoh
mooted of late, whether crime oan be com*
mitted by the aid of mesmerism. If so, it is
brought into relation not only with medicine
but with jurisprudence; not only wlththo
pbarmocopoaa, but the penitentiary. It is
obvious that if cases ef this kind occur tho
one to whom punishment must bo dealt out
is the mesmerist
I could probably induce any one of my
responslves to take his life in my presence
or to assault any body within reach, but
the mind wanders curiously ln this strange
condition, and generally takes littlo cognizance of surrounding objects. I havo
used the word " probably" ia this sentence
because the conduct ot mesmerised persons
can not bo positively predicted. The mental
impression may not in a given caso bo sufficiently vivid and dominating to induce action, or tht Intention may be counteracted
by the trained moral sense asserting itself
and overbalancing tha confused hypnotic
tendency.   	
A BUxty with a Horal.
The itory hu reached us of an Italian
nobleman who at the altar refused to marry
a young English heiress because hor bridal

SINGULAR  DEMANDS.
Deacon Blank In Search of -'tlio Bight
Mao for Our Cbarcli.
From the "Open. Lottcr" by Forrest F.
Emerson in Century, we quote the following.
"In proof of the lingular demands somotimes mado upon tbo minister, not only for
needful qualifications not looked for In other
professions, but also for those which do not
really form a part of tho clergyman's necessary outfit for his work, I offer for perusal
a letter written less than five years ago by
a member of a church in one of the largest
and oldest and—will it be believed!—most
cultured of our American cities. It was
written by one layman to another. The
writer was a member of the •' supply committee" appointed to "lookfor the right
man " as pastor, aud tlm epistle is one of inquiry into the fitness of 'a certain minister
who had been recommended to him for the
position. Leaving out dates and proper
names and a single sentence, which might
furnish a clue to identification, I give the
letter verbatim, without correction of rhetoric, grammar, italics or punctuation;

"Feeling myself irresistibly impelled by
inclination, and prompted by a sense of propriety, I havo presumed now to addrcs-*
you upon a subject of importance nnd doli*
cacy. Having conceived on affection for
your daughter (Hiss Bally), I bog leave to
solicit your permission to mako address to
hor, and at tbo samo time let me express
tho hopo that should I be io fortunate an to
succeed in gaining her affections, my first
wish03 may not be frustrated by your disapprobation. I have thought proper to mako
this application to you on tbo subject In
this manner, rather than in person, because-
my character—if I havo acquired any—my
condition, nud my situation in life aro not
altogether unknown to you, ond If objections are to bo mado thoy can be more freely
communicated In thlB than any other way.
I huvo heretofore proceeded no further
with tho lady than merely to obtain her permission lo mako this npplication; and, sir, 1
now plcdgo you the honor of a gentleman
that in caso you havo objection of an insuperable nature to the proposed union, what*

Gen. Coopor responded, saying:
"Although the application mad! hy your

When it was reported on Saturday
evening lhat the s. s. Islander had
discharged ber passengers at Port
Moody and that they would arrive in
Westminster by tram, there was considerable oicitement on the streets and
many persons wero of the opinion the
passengers should not be allowed to
enter the oity. A dispatch was finally
sent to Mr. Abbott announcing that he
would bo held responsible if any serious result followed tho bringing into
tho oity of possibly disease infected
passengers. As tho passengers could
not legally be prevented from entering
tho city, they were not interfered with
on arrival. Tho Islander returned to
Viotoria and lauded a number of pas-
ledgers there without any objection
from tho authorities. No victoria
steamer arrived st Vancouver yesterday and it is fhe intention of the company to bring the mail by way of
Westminster until tbe difficulty is settled. The Premier at lait reports wai
Itill at Vanoouver, AU the passengers for the island and for the sound
who arrived by tho Pacifio Express

Mr. Robson said the polls would

Mr. Curtis moved that Mayor Dickinson take the chair.   Carried.
His worship took tho chair and asked Mr. Hendry and tho different candidates to step forward and i»ivc their
sentiments on tho different questions
affecting the city's interests.
Mr. Hendry thanked the ratepayers
for the great honor they had done him
in selecting him as their ohief magistrate for the coming year. He would
so try to do his duty that when his
term expired tho people's opinion of
him would be as good as it is at present. The new city oharter would require some amendments, and these
would be brought before the house at
its next session. In railroad matters
he would work only in the best
interests of the oity; and the questions
of sewerage, water supply and street
improvement would be facilitated by
him in every possible way and have bis
hearty support, aa would also all commendable enterprises. Mr. Hendry
of hearty applause. *-■*■ "midst rounds
Mr. Curtis asked all present to give
the retiring mayor, Mr. Dickinson,
threo hearty cheers. He had served
the oity faithfully for 18 yean and no
more appropriate time than the present could be chosen for showing their
appreciatiou of his efforts.
The cheers were given with a right
hearty enthusiasm. Mayor Dickinson
said he had been taken by surprise.
Since first taking part in the civio
government of the oity he had done
hii best tn all matters. Concluding
Mr. Dickinson asked the people to
throw aside petty differences and
elect a good council in whose hands
the city's interests would not suffer.
The oitv must not be allowed to
retogrsde but be kept continually
progressing.   (Cheers).
Mr. Edmonds explained that
he had to go to Victoria
on business and would not bo
ablo to attend any public meeting
held before the election-*. He would
therefore tell Ihe meeting briefly his
position. The charter, he thought,
would require a great deal of attention
and the council's time would be much
taken up in connection with it.
Railway matters would have his best
support and all improvements, which
could be judiciously brought about,
would also be favorably considered.
He did not intend to make great
promises but if elected would work
only in the city's interests. (Applause)
Mr. Curtis said the city had done
much good by oleoting Mr. Hendry
mayor and the next thing wanted was
a sood council. His platform was :
Solid on railway matters and having
the contract carried out to iti last
letter; fire protection for the upper
portion of the city; a new and better
system of taxation and a oity market,
to attract the farmers,   (Applause).
Mr, Ewen considered the railway
question as good as settled,both parties
had contracts to carry out and would
do so, All improvements, such as water
supply, and sewerage hinged on taxation. Ho thought property should be
assessed at its proper value. It would
be folly to burden the city with a
large debt to make the necessary im*
Erovements all at onco. Thoy most
e done gradually. If elected he
would do all he could to conserve the
city's interests.   (Cheers).
Capt. Seoullar said everyone had
seen his election card in tho newspaper
and they knew he waa not trying to
Jot into tho council under false colors,
t was not expected that all the improvements could be carried out this
yenr, but much of the preliminary
work might be done. If elected he
would carry out his promises faithfully.
(Applause).
Mr. Reid was in sympathy with tho
railroad and would further itt just Interests In every way. Aa there waa
muoh work to be done he would not
promise anything further than that he
would do all and everything to assist
in bringing to a successful issue everything whioh would go to bettor the
city's position, The exhibition grounds
and a recreation ground would be
among tho first things ho would urge
upon the counoil if elected. (Applause).
Mr. Ovens said thore was no difficulty about the railway; the people had
settled that. The many neceuary improvements would receive hii best attention, and he would work hard in
the city's interests if re-elected.   (Ap*
Mr. McPhaden announced himself
in favor of the railway, oity park improvements and all schemes tending
towards the advancement and prosperity ot tho city. If elected he would
work in the city's best interests. (Applause).
Mr. Jus. Wise said that if elected he
would seo that the contract between
the city and the railway company was
properly carried out, and that uot one
cont was expended without an equivalent. If elected he would support all
commendable enterprises and carry
out all his promises to the lettor. (Applause).
Mr. Ackerman was thoroughly in
favor of the progress of the oity. He
had no bridges to build over ravines
or roads to grade in front of his property and therefore could not bo accused of having an axe to grind. He
was in favor cf the railway, city market, &c. and if oleoted would do his
duty carefully and honostly. (Applause).
Mr. Webb said it was rumored he
was opposed to the railway—such was
not the case. He had been one of the
injunctors in favor of the city. Tho
city must havo value for its money-
dollar for dollar. He bad never sat in
the counoil, but if elected he would
use his best ability aud do everything
in his power for tho city's welfare.
(Applause).
The meeting then adjourned..

OHDINATION AT HOLV TRINITY.
At Holy Trinity Churoh yesterday
morning His Lordship Bishop Sillitoe
conducted the solemn and impressive
ceremony of ordination on three candidates. His lordship was assisted by
Venerable Archdeacon Woods, Venerable Archdeacon Sariven, Rev. C.
Croucher, Rev. Mr. Scholfield and
Rov, P. Woods. The ordination
sermon was preached by Venerable
Archdeacon Scriven, whose effort was
both powerful and appropriate and referred particularly to the sacrednosa of
tho ceremony. The candidates for
deacon, Mr, Wright, presented by the
Venerable Archdeacon Woods, and
Mr. Stevenson, presented by the Venerable Archdeacon Scriven, took. the
prescribed oaths so impressively given
by HiB Lordship. The Rov. Wilmot
Baugh Allen was then ordained priest,
being presented for the ceremony by
the Venerable Archdeacon Woods,
His Lordship Bishop Sillitoe completed the services by administering
the holy communion, which was partaken of by about 50 commuicants,
Rev. Mr. Allen and Mr. Wright will
labor in this diocese and Rev. Mr.
Stevenson in the diocese of Columbia.
ST. ANDREW'S   PREaBYTBBIAN church.
Yesterday was communion Sabbath
in the Presbyterian church, uud Rev.
Thos. Scoullar took for his text in the
morning 1st Cor. 3 o. 2 v. : "For we
are brothers together with God," In
Paul's address address to the Corinthian Church he had occasion to correct their-preference for one teacher
or the other, as though the instrument
was any thing; some said, "I am of
Paul," whilst others said "I um of
Apollos," and Paul showed thorn that
God himself was" the<i«o-d*»3.i.iQ|I o)L
spiritual life. Gad had an eternal
purpose to redeem men from the curse
of his transgressions, and, as His great
coworker, Christ, in offering Himself
a sacrifice, made an atonement for
sin. The Holy Spirit noxt comes in
for HiB part of tho work—to convince
the sinner of his* sinfulness and the
need of a Saviour, .at\d point* w
Christ's finished wortp onntha-cross and
oA"J-rftiif0 ftfijty&tek loul to believe
old world to the 'coming R&fceroVi-
and the apostles preached the word to
prove that the Saviour had come and
paid the penalty of a brokon law.
John, the immediate forerunner of
Christ, pointed out Him who was
about to enter on his life work, as
"the Lamb of God that taketh away
the sins of the world." Tho successors
of the apostles, by the teaching of the
Word, havo continued to act as coworkers with God, ascribing to Him
the glory of their achievements. Know*
ing that Paul may plant and Apollos
may water, but only God can give the
increase; every true follower of Christ
is a co-operator with God ; parents
especially are in a poiition to work for
Him. Timothy ia an example of the
good effects of parential teaching and
co-working with God. As in the natural world, man is the agent to accomplish God's purposes; God gives the
seasons, but man must plough and
sow or there will be no harvest; it is
only through man's co-operation that
tho great work of redemption can be
fully accomplished. The memorial of
Christ's broken body and shed blood
must be kept up by the believer until
he come again, and this ia a means of
graco that helps to strengthen out faith
in God's great plan of redemption
through the blood of tho atonement.
Twenty-throe new members were
added to tho church.
OLIVET BAPTMT CHURCH.
At the Olivet Baptist Churoh lut
evening tho Rev. Thos, Baldwin spoke
from Mark 8th chapter, 36th verse, and
said: "The Lord Jesua Christ was tho
only real appraiser of values in the
universe; God made everything for
him, everything was reserved for him,
and that ho would best know their
valuos wont without debato. Man
went down into a gold mine, chipped
off a piece of quartz and sent it to the
si-Bayer, or gathered some precious ores
and sent them to the expert to ascertain their worth: so Jesus Christ took
man in his bands and said, 'How
much is that man worth before the assembled universe 1 Suppose he gain
the world, how muoh would he be loser
or gainer?' It waa a queition of values,
God had made man after a certain design, and made him with susceptibilities and possibilities, and ho knows
his worth and sayi, 'Suppose he possess tbe whole world for his own and
his heirs and assigns, and it is possible
in the order of God's will, how much
will It profit him if he loso his soul.' It
was a calculation in arithmetic, and let
man look at it in a commercial, a business, point of view; let him calculate
his soul, his personnel, as sgalnst the
world. The world wis not the samo
ss when created; we bad advanced and
would not care to return to the days of
'49 even, to slowly wend our way over
the hills in a stage coach. Our mines
had produced minions of wealth, aud
when the foreiti failed for fuel we had
gone down and got coal; our commerce
had spread out, our wool had been
sheared, and we had been clothed; in
short, we hsd developed. Where tbe
buffalo and the wolf ranged there
woro the vast stretches of waving
corn, soeming to praise God.
Man had done wonders, and this went
to prove that thoy were scions of the
Great Sire Himself. How wonderful
and wise God had been to hide, to put
away, things and ideas until we were
old enough to use them; when the old
sperm oil was getting exhausted, they
found coal oil, and when this was getting low natural gas had sprung up,
and those things made them feel the
fatherhood of God. Then we should
think of the treatment Christ had given us; he saw the Mosaic system did
not answer; thero was no chord between
God and man, and Jesus comes down
and clothca himself with our manhood,
deconds from the Majesty on high and
becomes man that we may become tbe
sons of God. Could we but estimate
the value of man, first made like God;
than it took the sacrifice of the Son of
God to redeem him, so that man was
priceless. Christ had laid aside his
glory, endured tne croii, accomplished
our salvation, and now ha puts an
estimate upon our value, body and
soul, io great that he purposes resurrection. How many a grave, how
these fallen bodies lived in his memory,
causing him to shed oceans of tears;
but these bodies were going to live
again — priceless — God's chemistry
Would stir life in these bones—JeauB
would point In triumph to the man
waking up after centuries, the tame
man, praising God in his glorified
body, Tito spirit would be united
with the body; and there would be no
justice if God punished the .spirit and
their joint evil acts. Many spirits
wanted to accept the Gospel, but the
body -aaid no. It was the body that
completed the worth of the man, and
the life of tho flesh must appear in
judgment, aud it should make us
afraid for ourselves when we sre
resurrected to • judgment. GooV had
provided a home for us to go to' and
when we decay, when wo are on the
homo atretch, it ahould beckon ua on
and we should see, liko Bunyan, tho
Celestial City ahead, to which some
havo crossed and some are crossing
now, a place provided beyond all reach
of care. Hero there was Buffering and
obstacles, but there, there was no
moro Borrow, no misunderstanding,
no friend missed. It waa the home of
God, where body and soul would dwell.
Man's value was wonderful, and our
body and soul had to be saved; it
would not bo right to put a. spirit into
a body to be debauched by that body
and not bring that body to judgment
with the spirit; and in closing the Rev.
gentleman said wo Md an invaluable
interest to consorve, and that fact,
that both body and soul would live
Bomewhere to all eternity, either in
joy or punishment, made it certain
that it would not pay to Ioobo our*
selves, oven though we might gain tho
whole world
Gilbert Laird, Bt. Margaret's Hope,
Orkney, Scotland, writes: "I am re*
quested by several friends to order another parcel of Dr. Thomas' Eeleotric
Oil. The last lot I got from you havbg
been tested in several cases of rheumatism, haa given relief when doctors' medicines have failed to have any effect. The
excellent qualities of this medicine should
be made known, that the millions of sufferers throughout the world may benefit
by Its providential discovery,"

lie near the C. P. R. track, about
three miles east of lllooillewait station.
Considerable development work has

About 1,000 tons of ore are lying on

During the winter operations are confined to the driving cf a tunnel on the
