GERMAN STATIONS
In Zanzibar Captured and Destroyed by the Natives and Freed Negroes Again in Bondage.
Large Native Reinforcements Arrive an the Coast.-The German
Outlook Worse than Ever.
Delaney's Evidence Before the Parnell Commission of an Incriminating Nature.
GERMAN STATION <J A ITU HED.
Zanzibab, Jan. 17.—Nowb wu received hero of an attack by the Arabs
upon tho German mission station at
Thru, only a short distanco west of
Dares Sitlam, whero the majority of
tho slaves oaotured by the German
man-of-war Leipaig were lodged. Tlie
insurgents destroyed tlio station nnd
massacred 7 of tho missionaries. Ono
missionary escaped to tho coast. Three
bodied, oue that of a .woman, were
found barbarously mutilated. The
Arabs carried off all servants attached
to the mission, together with the slaves
stationed thore. The Arabs are now
on the warpath and threaten all the
missionaries. The French mission
stations, especially those near Tugu,
are in imminent danger of an attack.
The Arabs who are now joining in the
slave traflio como principally from
Kilivo Lindi and are richer and more
influential than the Bashiri,the present
Arab leaders. Thoy will probably
overshadow the Bashiri and givo a new
impetus to the revolts.
RESIGNED.
Beklin, Jan. 17.—Dr. Frodberg,
minister of justice, has resigned owing
to the publishing of Geffecken's indictment.
A BITTEIl PARTING.
London, Jan. 16.—United States
Minister Phelps was the guest of the
evening at n banquet given by the
Fishmongers' Company to-night. In
responding to the toast of his health,
he snid: ''Tho only complaint I have
to bring against this country is that
my experience has made it more difficult for mo to say good-bye than to
pei form any duty which has devolved
on me since i! came here." Continuing
Mr, Phelps expressed tho hopo (hat ho
might have Ihe pleasure of seeing, in
one couutiy or the other, a largo number of his English friends. Therefore,
in sayint* farewell he would adopt Ihe
poet's sentiment and say, "not goodnight, but on some happier day, bid
me good morning."
MISSIONARY STATION   ATTACKED.
Zanzibar, Jan. 16.—An attack by
insurgents on the German missionary
station at De Es Salem begun early
on the morning of January 11th. The
stilt inn was unguarded nnd contained
a hundred natives lately freed from
slavery, and three male and two femalo
missionaries. Ono of the missionaries
was severely wounded, but escaped
and reached the German wan-nf-war
Mouvt*. The othen v. ere captured by
insurgents, who sold them into slavery
in the interior, and the insurgents
pillaged the town. The Mouve bombarded the place and destroyed it, but
did no harm to the insurgents.
FOUGHT LIKE MEN.
London, Jan. 16.—Tho resignation
of Captain Lord William Cecil, son of
Lord Salisbury, from the Grenadier
Guards, has caused a great stir in military circles. No reason is given for
the resignation to tho public, but it is
iiBserled that his withdrawal was due
to a list fight which his lordship recently had with a brother officer at
Kuightsbridge barracks. From the
report* in circulation it is gathered
that he got very much the wont of
tho encounter, and besides receiving
Iwo black eyes, sustained other injuries at the hands of his antagonist
which will necessitate his retirement
from publio view for some timo. It
is understood that some of (ho radical
members of the house of commons
have resolved to question the secretary
of war concerning the affair when parliament meets.
DELANEY'S EVIDENCE.
London, Jan. 16.—In the evidence
of Patrick Delany, a convict from
Marlboro prison, beforo the Parnell
Commission, he testified that he hod
belonged to the Fenians. He said
that the principal part of thu Inviu-
cibles oath was a clause binding the
members to assassinate the viceroy and
tho whole executive torce of Ireland.
He had received money from the
National League. The witness, said
that he was deputed to watch Mr.
Forester, and Joseph Brady and Timothy Kelly were delegated to murder
him. The witness stated that ho had
no part in tho Phoenix Park murder.
Ho said that Mrs, Bryno brought over
to Ireland tho two knives usvtt at Ihe
Phamix Park murders. Delauoy
testified that tho principal leader.- uf
tho Fenians wore Egaii.Bronimn, John
Lnvoy, John Doran and Dr. Macallis*
ter. About 1870 a number of delegates, including John O'Connor, John
Devoy and General Miller, cuute from
America, Witness attended a meeting in the Foresters' Hall, Dublin, at
which John Devoy represented the
American council. General Miller inspected the military organization. It
was arranged that arms should bo
provided and the expenses ' ot same
paid. At another meeting Davitt,
Parnell, Egan, BigtfartDillon,Brennan
and Harris attended. Carey at this
meeting attacked Davitt for not nd*
hoving to the principles of thu orgniii-
zution. Witness was told that the
"circles" were n<>t opposed to the
League' which would organize the
Fenians and supply them with arms.
At a meeting of the Invinciblos, hold
aftor the Phoenix Park murders, a
quantity of guld and bank notes wore
luid on the table. Afterwards revolvers, daggers and money came. De*
laney swore that James Carey had
attempted to hire a house from the
windows of which the Dublin Castle
officials might bo shot, but he was unable to secure ono in tho locality suitable for his purpose. He also testified that Patrick Egan had promised to
pay Carey his election expenses when
the lattnr was a candidate for office in
tho Dublin municipality. Upon cross
examination Delauey admitted that
when 17 years of ago, he was sentenced
to prison for & years for highway rob*
bery. Whon ho was accused of participation in tho Phoenix Park murders
he gave the authorities all the information in his possession. The Fenians
wero never an assassination society
except in the case of informers. Tho
Invinciblos. however, were different.
He knew that Egan, Brennan and
Bryno were Fenians, He never saw
them among th& Invinciblos, but
knew they were among the leaders of
the organization.

TUB ENGLISH SIDE OF IT.
London, Jan. 14.—The St. James'

spuko when he ought to have boen
silent, and told the truth to the wrong
persons. This, however, does not excuse President Cleveland's treatment

solid resson for placing the latter iu a

CORRESPONDENCE.
Taxing IsapNVfwents.
Editor Columbian.—The correspondence tin t appears in the Guardian ot
Wednesday, on the subject of taxing
''improvements as well as lots," Is a curiosity. After wading through an immense arithmetical calculation, trying to
prove the "mischief involved in the
new charter, which authorizes taxing lm
provements fn addition to the land, and
citing a number of what he calls "extreme cases," such as -'Cunningham,
Lundboni, Corbould, Colonial Hotel,
Queen's Hotel, Mead, and others," who,
according to this "Taxpayer," will bo
ruined entirely by the new (to Westminster) mode of raising city revenue, this
sapient writer says: "It Is easy to foresee
tlie consequences of such a stato of
things. Heal estate will tumble down in
value and nobody would build." Anil,
immediately after uttering tho above, he
Slves utterance to another idea, which
lows that, after all. the man who buthla
on his lot Is bolter able to pay taxes than
he who does not; ho bays: "With a
heavy debt on tbe city, probably many
an absentee would be compelled to build
on his lot to bo able to stand tho pros
sure of the heavy taxes on such lots,"
This poor man "Taxpayer," has just
made a confession that tho man who has
his lots improved and is receiving his
monthly Income from house rents is better able to pay taxes on that income
than tho foolish speculator who is oithor
to*, poor or too stingy to improve hia lots;
he has Inadvertently acknowledged tho
justice of the principle of taxing im-
Srovementa. It is astonishing, and a
oplorablo fact, that, as a general thing,
those who would be most benefited by
local enterprises are tho most backward
to assist in their promotion; they seem
to be afraid of any change from fear that
general prosperity would enablo some
one clsoto use tho "muck rake," as they
havo been doing; poor, miserable bouIs,
thoy  are  to be  pitied; they can take
nothing with thnn, and how will they
part with tholr raklngs. This city and
Namlmo aro the only places on this
coast whero land only is taxed. The
principle of taxing improvements Is
acknowledged in practice all ovor tho
world. Tho groat oversight in the new
oharter Ib not putting a double tax on
vacant lots, aftor a reasonable timo.

Hut Board of Trade Bcsetwuan.
Editor Columbian.—At tho regular
meeting of the council of the board of
trade, held yesterday afternoon, atten
tion waa directed to a letter which ap*
peared in the Guardian yesterday morning, signed by Mr. A. W. Lundboni, in
which the board of trade was charged
with having grossly misrepresented facta
in tho resolution it passed some weeks
ago respecting the Southern Railway injunction. Since the veracity and dignity
of tho board have been assailed by the
letter above referred to, and the writer
has unfairly attempted to make capital
out of it for the apparent purpose of further embarrassing an undertaking with
the success of which, most people believe,
the future development of the city is
closely identified, I am instructed byfthe
board to mako a brief reply. Mr. Lund-
bom declares that the preamble of the
board of trade resolution contains two
statements which are not true. These
statements were (1) that the citizens ratified the contract between the Southern
Railway Co. and Sheaffe k Co., and (2)
that the ratepayers agreed, by vote, to
pay a bonus of 9150,000 to the Southern
Railway. The board maintains that
both its statements are correct, As to
the first, it is only necessary to say that
before and after the vote on the by-law
several influential meetings of citizens
wero held, at every one of which the
scheme of the railway, including the
agreement, was heartily endorsed. One
of the meetings was called by persons
who, with Mr. Lundboni, were opposed
to tho arrangements, but nevertheless a
resolution approving of the council's action was carried almost unanimously.
Moreover, the agreement between the
railway company and Sheaffe ft Co. was
published before the vote on the by-law
was taken, and virtually became a part
of the by-law Inasmuch as it was distinctly referred to therein. The by-law
without tbe agreement wonld be completely null and void. The vote
on. the by-law, therefore, . was
an endorsement of the agreement.
Tho second charge againat the board of
trade is based upon a subterfuge. It Is
asserted that the bonus was voted to tbe
ferry and workshops, and not to the
railway. Now every citizen knows tbat,
ia effect, the bonus was voted to the rail*
way on certain conditions, of whleh two
were the establishment of a competent
ferry and the erection and maintenance
of workshops, A serious doubt existed
as to the power of the oity to give a
bonus directly to tho railway, and it was
to overcome this difficulty tbat the bylaw specified that part of the scheme
comprised in the workshops and ferry.
Uut tlie bonus goes to the railway company all the samo on condition that the
workshops and ferry are established as
therein set forth. It is a distinction
without a difference. If Mr. Lundboni
should propose to establish a stage line
from Port Moody to New Westminster,
and this city should offer him a bonus on
condition that he erected certain stage
houses within its limits, would it make
any difference to Mr, Luudbom or the
city if the bonus was applied tothe stage
houses or tbe Btage line itself, so long as
both were established iu accordance with
the terms of agreement T No mon does
it affect the city's intereit whether the
$150,000 bonus voted is applied to the
workshops and ferry,- or to the Southern
Railway, bo long aj both are secured ;
and this ia exactly what the agreement
and the by-law provide, Tbe bonus was
therefore, a bonus to tho railway, although, for reasons above noted, it waa
to be applied to that part of the railway
scheme comprised in the ferry and workshops ; and the board of trade resolution
is perfectly consistent with the facts.
Having shown that Mr. Lundbom is entirely Tn error with respect to these two
propositions, thoro is very little else to be
said. It may not be out of place, how*
ever, to observe that if tbe agreement is
eliminated from the by-law, as Mr. Lundbom seems to wish, It may happen that
we shall get no railway for our bonus at
all I The by-law itself does not contain
a single clause requiring the company to
build a railway, but only to erect workshops and establish a ferry. If the agreement is not made a part of the by-law,
therefore, tbe city may find itself in
possession of empty workshops and an
elaborate ferry for either of whtch it
might be very difficult to find any practical use whatever ; and for these monuments of Its excessive liberality It would
be compelled to pay $150,0001 Mr.
Lundbom next attacks the board of trado
because its resolution deprecated tlio
action of himself and others in attempting to prevent the carrying out of the
scheme, and declares that tbe object of
the injunction was merely to force tbe
city council to abide by the conditions of
the by-law. Has Mr. Lundbom forgotten
tbat his injunction was aimed at the
quashing of the by-law, as well aa setting
aside the board of trustees f When the
matter came before courts the injunction
against the by-law itself was dropped,
but that does not affect the perfect correctness of the board of trade resolution.
Mr Lundbom further intimates that if
the injunction had not prevailed the
company would now have the money
voted under tho by-law, but the assertion is not accompanied by evon an attempt to prove its correctness. Under
the agreement not one dollar of the de*
benture money could be paid out except
by consent of Masters Robert Dickinson,
Jas. Cunningham and D. S. Curtis; and it
Ib the opinion of tho board of trade that
public confidence In these gentlemen is
auch as to warrant It in accepting the arrangement aa a sufficient safeguard
against a misapplication of the trust
funds. In conclusion let it be known that
the board of trade has no ticket In the field
for the coming election, and the question
ofputtirg forward or supporting any
person to represent its views in the
council lias never been discussed at any
of its meetings.

Tliurs'lnj Evenlna, Jan. II, 1880.
It bohooves the municipal electors to bo wary nnd allow no wool—
or moss--to be stuffed into their
oyes. The apostles of mossbackism
nro making a dying, but tlcspcrato
kick on this occasion, and in
1 insiduous, but all tho moro danger*
ous, guise. The correspondence
columns of a local paper are being
deluged with special pleadings by
anonymous scribblers, who uro also
scattering irresponsible effusions
broadcast We would say to the
electors, Swallow nothing; think
for yourselves. There ure two sides
to every question. We have something to say to-day on tho othor
sido, Wo would repeat, that it
behooves the electors to be wary.
The fight between progress and
mossbacfcisni is b-.-ing forced, by the
emissaries of tho latter. The question will bu settled—and settled
practically for »ood—at the elections on Monday, whethor we aro to
advance or rtdogade, whether wo
uro to take our rightful place as
ono of tho lending cities—if not the
loading nity—in this province, or
ignominious])* crawl into a back
seat and rusticate and rust. Upon
the elector; is the responsibility.
Let them look to it.
Now that tbe question has beon
rrtised for the first timo by a correspondent in the columns of tho
Guardian, with regard toMhe new
city charter authorizing the taxing
of reproductive improvements of city
property, it -my not be amiss to examine the pros mul cons uncut thnt
subject. ''Taxpayer " in the Guardian of Wednesday has spoken on the
subject »s con., and "Another Taxpayer" speaks in today's issuo of
TnB Columbian us a pro. Tho object, in the first place, for not taxing
improvements in New Westminster
was to encourago tbe growth of the
place, uud those who wore able to
take the advantage of so liberal eu
couragement havo profitted by it to
their advantage. Rents have been
high, notwithstanding the liberal
inducement to build free from taxation, and the great burden of supporting the city government has so
far not been borne by those whose
property has been protected, iu proportion to the advantages they have
onjoyod. To take a fair, candid view
of the matter, we will suppose that
A, U and O invest an equal sum of
money in land, without any conditions as to making improvements.
A, after paying for his land, has
cash on hand to build a fine house
and fill it with valuable commodities for sale. B and 0 are not able
to do so, but are obliged to hold on
to their land in hopes to sell at a
profit. In the meantime, according
to law or usage, a fire engine, with
all its equipments and expense, must
bu kept up by taxation on A, B and
G's real estate for the express purpose of protecting A's fine store, full
of goods. The question comes up,
How is this tax to be levied 1 A
says, On the value of the land. B
and 0 reply, And your fine store
building, to protect which from destruction by fire tho tax is to be
raised, must go seott free* only for
your building no tax would be
needed; then again, we must employ
night-watchmen to protect your fine
building, full of valuable goods, from
burglars, and we, who have nothing
but land to protect, must pay as
much us you, who are tho cause of
all this trouble and expense J No,
sirree; thut is played out; you have
been protected long enough at our
expense; in futuro you must pay
your own night-watchmen, and a
share of every other municipal expense, out of the profits of your
lucrative business. Modify the same
illustration, or curry it a littlo far-
then, and the samo forcible argument is presented, to every fair and
reasoning mind, of the expediency
and justice of taxing improvements
according to their value, as against
the unequal and played out system
of taxing the land only. Suppose
that, in the course of time, B and C,
having held on to their land, become
able to build a small cottage each on
their lots., of littlo monetary value;
thoy could well afford, under these
circumstances, to pay a pro rata
tax on their improvements, in addition to the tax on the land alone;
for the reason that, if A paid the
• same pro rata tax on his large nnd
reproductive improvements, a sufficient sum would be realized for
municipal purposes without making
the sum of B's and O's taxes, on
both lots and improvements, so high
as it wonld have been in the case of
taxes being levied on the land alone.
Thia puts the onus of taxation
where it belongs—upon those who
aro ablo to pay it—every man according to his ability, and according
to the protection and advantage accruing to him- from municipal or
civil government At having his lot
built up solid, say ten Btories high,
and renting every flat in offices and
■tores — realizing perhaps $150 a
month from each floor, B and 0—
poor men—having a cabin eaoh in a
corner of their respective lots—the
remainder of tho ground "going to
gnm,n with perhapi a wwggy oow |
and a few scrawny chickens picking,
up a living—B and O the meanwhile earning small wages in some
of A's stores. And B and O paying
equal sums in taxation into the
municipal treasury with tho princely
A! Tut, tut, nonsense man! You
must be drivelling indeed! No, let
A pay bis own taxes. As B and O
got better off, they will cheerfully
pay according to their improved fortunes—in proportion to their reproductive improvements. The time is
past in Westminster for giving n
bonus to ordinary building improvements; this system might have
served a sort of makeshift purpose
at one timo in our history, when we
were just dying to hear the noise of
tho hammer nnd the saw in tho
land; but it was never a just ono,
and, if any excuse over existed for
it, it is lacking now. We have attained to a different status altogether. Thon our town wus obscure,
unknown, progressing snail-like, if it
progressed at all, Now we are
known, sought after, progressing
with giant strides—which, however,
is but an earnest of what is in store
for us in tho near future. Buildings
are goins* up on overy hand and
many moro are projected, Capitalists aro not the fools that somo peoplo appear to think them. They
will continue to build here, because
it pays to do so; they will not be
bribed to build just for the satisfaction (.) of reflecting that they don't
have to pay taxes on thoir improvements. No, no; we can well afford
at this stage to have a just system
of taxation—one that shall not
grind tho poor at the expense of the
rich and starve the municipal
treasury at the samo time. Wo can
well afl'ord—wo can not afford to be
without it any longer!—an equal
system of taxation all round, whioh
shall at the same time onable us to
undertake such necessary municipal
improvements ns will in turn attract
an increased flow of capital nnd
population to our city. Those, too,
upon whom the taxation of improvements would bear heaviest immediately—those who have the
largest intorests in tho place—would
be tho very first to benefit from the
beneficent results of this just taxation. They would speedily find the
income-producing power of their
" improvements " quadrupled and
the value of their land raised from
hundreds to thousands. There is
the obverse, too, to bo looked at.
For we shall never progress under
the old style. And not to progress
in these jostling days is to drift
rapidly to the rear-—to become discredited—overlooked — side-tracked
—counted out of the running. Of
what satisfaction, then, will bo
crumbling improvements, tennntless
blocks, and depreciating real estate?
It is true, the rather melancholy—
but, perhaps, to the mossback
fraternity, juicy—satisfaction would
remain, that very soon thero would
be practically nothing but " land "
loft to tax—a return to first principles with a vengeance. But we
are convinced that no such unhappy
tate will befall the royal city; that
her citizens, both rich and poor, have
got their eyes open too wide to
allow any anonymous, mole eyed
scribbler to persuade them to cut
their own throats or take slow poison either, We believe that at the
municipal elections on Monday Old
Pope Mossback, in this community,
which, like Bunyan's ugly ogre, can
do little now but sit at his cave's
mouth, biting his nails, grinning and
growling, will got his worthless
brains knocked out forever, by a
well played club in the hands of a
courageous and lusty public opinion,
determined to advance. So mote it
be.   Amen.

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Electors of New Westminster City;
Ladies and Gentlemen,—
At tin; request of a number of friends I
have consented lo place my name in
nomination for the position of alderman
at the coming election, fully realizing the
Importance mid duties of the oflice. If
elected I will endeavor to the best of my
ability, to place our cily in llie fi-ont rank
of tho cities of 11, C. Tho following Important questions will have my careful
attention:
1. Railway.—l will use every legitimate
menus in my power to bring to a successful termination the building and completion of tlieSontheni Hullnnnl,ami will
tront liberally any projected railway
which mny wish lo run Into our city,
always carefully guarding the best interests of the cily. And ii Is iny opinion
if wo nre true to ourselves nnd bury any
little differences that may exist nnd work
shoulder to shoulder, we enn mnke New
Westminster ttie greatest railway center
ami most important city between Senttlo
and Alaska.
2. Wateii Supply.— I am lu favor of tho
city owning Its own watef works, for thero
Is a very large revenue to be derived from
this source, if properly conducted, ond, if
elected, I will at once take up this question
and deal with it on business principles,
Water rale debentures when Issued, near
their own value and will not ho one dollar's tax ou tbe ratepayers.
:!. Skwf.iiage.—This Is one of tho most
I in pui tain questions tlmt the no-,** council
will havo to irrapple Willi, anil, as ihero Is
hound to he a large eiiilj-ratlon here this

pn'pi.'i !y sewered,and Ihereveiuiederived
from ihe sale of water be made tu pay llie
interest und sinking fund for both water
works nml sewerage.
4, Stueets—Something must he done
at onco lo open up all streets lu tho city
so ns !-. glvo workingmen nnd mechanics
n chance (o gel lo tbelr lols and buildings,
and, If''Iccled.I will givo this subject my
careful nttentlon and hearty support.
fi. City Kali..—If any proposition Is
brought forward for the erection of n suitable cily hall, and If tho finances of the
city will allow It, I will give it my warmest support.
o. STitEEi Lighting.—I will favor tlio
extending and Improving of our system of
street lighting,for there Is no doubt it will
stand considerable improvement.
7. Paiiic.—In order lo mako the coming
agricultural show n success wo must put a
portion of the city park in n tit condition
with suitable buildings, etc. If elected I
will do my bcNtto mako tho grounds a
credit to the roynl city. I nm also ln favor
of removing the unsightly stumps on
Albert Crescent and planting a few shade
trees to replace the stumps. Nature lias
done much for our cily and It only wants
touching up a little to mako It perfect.
8. Pnm.10 Library.—There Is no doubt
a new building Is wanted lo replace the
dcliipldatod ono now occupying uvalua-
hlo lot,and there is no doubt in my mind,
but that a suitable one could ho erected
wl tli Btores underneath nnd library above;
and tho rents from snld stores would more
than pay for Interest nnd sinking fund,
and leave n balance for keeping the library In proper condition.
0, Manufacturers.—I will encourage
nny manufacturers thatcontcmplatefitnr-
tlug business in this city, treating them
Ina liberal manner, and will useevery
effort to show them the nd vantage of doing
buslno.is here. It is well known thnt manufactures arc tho backbone of nny city.
10. CbjuniNioATioKS.—I will urge upon

11. Letter BoxE8.'-I will nlso endeavor

Iho necessity of having the local government place a sum of money In this year's
estimates to put tlio Norlh Arm rond in a

10. Street Naming and Numhering.—
If elected I will urge upon my colleagues the necessity of having our streets

FACTS ABOUT  MARBLE.
How the Hugged Bock Is Converted Into
Polished Variegated Slabs.
Fow people who stand beforo a finished
monuthoht or mantel, or even a soda-water
fount In a drug store, and admire the highly-polished variegated marble, says the New
York Commercial Advertiser, realize the
umount of time and labor that bas been expended in the evolution of the completed
structure from the raw materials. Tho
highly-colored varieties are found chiefly in
Italy, Spain, Prance, Belgium, or Portugal,
though sometimes In Mexico or Algeria.
Tho white stone ia common in this State.
Among the marbles which most frequently
enter into composition of fancy apparatus
aret      ({«„ 'A &S [,   f,
Italian-white, vernal aud clouded, with bluish gray; Etrurian—pure porcelain whito, Sara-
noisa shaded cream white, veined with dark

pink iBardigllo—delicately veined graySnnan*

purplish rod, mottled with pearl white; Warwick-brilliant red, veined with white; Belgian—velvety black; African — yellow, with
purple veins; Rouge Antique—deep red; Knox*
villo—grayish pink, with light blue velnlng,
The colored marbles retain their freshness longer and can bo repollshed after
many years' use.
Tho marble is extracted from the quarry
In oblong blocks cut out by means o!
Exoept when designated for statuary or
building purposes tho first thintt the manufacturer does is to place the block of marble
under a gang-saw ln order to saw It into
slabs. The gang-saw consists merely of a
scries of parallel saws, to which an oscillating motion is Imparted while thoy aro kept
fed with sand and water.' When thoy come
from tho gang-saw the slabs are generally
about 1% inches thick, so that they may
dress to one inch when rubbed on both
sides. Tho slabs are then inspected. To tha
Inexpcrionced eye the rough slabs are much
ulilto, and while the good qualities of tha
slab aro only fully brought out under Uw
polisher's mop, the imperceptible defects
are also magnified very muoh. It is therefore necessary to detect flaws before the
polishing begins.
The perfect slabs are cut into required
lengths by a rip-saw and passed to the rubbing bed to bo rubbed smooth. The rubbing
bed consists of a solid horizontal cast-Iron
wheel about four Inches thick and usually
about twelve or thirteen feet in diameter.
This wheel is fixed In a vertical shaft which
revolves on two chilled steel friction halls,
placed one upon the other, and inclosed in a
cast-iron box which is kept well supplied
with oil. The box itself is firmly imbedded
in a stone foundation, and the entire structure is mado as true and as steady as possible. It requires a great deal of care and
attention to keep the rubbing-bed perfectly
true; and it Is sometimes necessary to rub
it down for a whole week with hluestone in
order to keep the surface smooth.
When the slab leaves the rubbing-bed It
Is comparatively smooth, and Is ready to bo
cut out by hand into its final shape. It thon
passes into the hands of the polishers, who
are provided with rubbers made of ordinary
ticking rolled up Into a mop of about three
or four mchos in diameter and sewed firmly
through and through. With these they rub
tho surface of the slab back and forth, hour
aftor hour, until they bring out tho high
polish so muoh admired. The marble is
first rubbed with grit, then with pumice-
stone, and then with hono. On somo white
marbles oxalic acid is thon used, and finally
tho finishing touches are given with putty
ot zinc. On colored marbles emery and
French putty, prepared with sulphur and
lead, are used. It is estimated that each
square foot of surface polished costs one
man four hours of steady work.
ln gilding, four or five gold leaves are
blown Into a cushion made of a board covered with chamois. The gilder cuts it Into
strips a quarter of an inch wide, lays it on
tho marble with his "tip," thon "cottons"
It on, after which he rubs it down with a
fine hair brush in order to smooth tho laps
and form an even and continuous surface.
He thoa cleans off the edges with cuttle fish.
Great dexterity is acquired by gliders, and
thoy seem to handle with tbe greatest easo
the delicate gold leaf which tho slighost
breath Of air is sufficient to carry off, and
which in inexperienced hands is utterly unmanageable.
The variegated, dark-colored marbles aro
most expensive, but they aro also generally
hardor and more durablo, as •well as moro
beautiful, than those that are white or light
colored.. Tho common white marble, which
is not so valuable from an ornamental point
of view, has a separate value as being tho
best basis for tho production of carbonic
acid gas for the manufacture of" soda'1 water and alt other carbonated beverages, and
a largo trade is done in it for this purpose.
It has succeeded whiting and bicarbonato
yot soda in this respect on account of its
r cheapness. A barrel of good marble-dust,
weighing about 400 pounds, costs 11.25. An
equal quantity of whiting costs about (3.50,
and produces no more gas. A like weight
of bicarbonate of soda produces a double
amount of gas, hot costs about 17.
At far m chemical composition is concerned marble and whiting are analogous—
both are carbonates of lime, and when
i equally puro both contain the same amount
of carbonic acid. Whiting, however, is
rarely, if ever, as pon as marble. It consists chiefly of the remains of extremely
small animalcules.
A PHANTOM  TRAIN.
Strange Spectacle Seen In the Rarefied
Air or the Black Hills.
My companion then spoke concerning our
mission to this bleak and barren spot, says
a writer In tho Leadvillc (Col.) Herald In
courso of a description of tho lonely landscape of tho Centennial Stato, "About
twelve years ago," he Bald, "an old man by
tho name of Cearuals was tho proprietor of
a jock'truin with which housed to bring
provisions and othor commodities into that
mining camp you 'seo beneath you there.
This wus beforo tho railroads entered tho
fastnesses of thoso mountains, and every
thing was brought by mule teams or by
thoso Jock trains Into the camp. Tho treasures which were found in tho bills wero
carried out the same way.
"Ono timo the old man Ccarnals did not
arrive in tho camp oh timo. 'Twos In tho
wintor-ond tho coldest ono, too, ever ox*
ca,iorlonced In those hills. A searching
party was sent out to find bim and his train,
us tho people who had goods consigned to
him feared that some accident bad bofallen
blm. Neor whero we aro now Is whore ho and
his train were found frosen to death. Aud
now each night may be seen the jack train
j ust as thoy woro, but In the form of specters,
filing along tho way to tho camp. Got out
and wo will go down the trail a piece and see
them." We got out of the buggy, and
fastening the horse to a stunted pine, wo descended the other side of the range on the
rood to Alma. Aftor a most perilous and
tortuous walk of half an hour, on account of
tho.slippery condition of ' the ground,
which , wu covered with show,. my
companion led me to * point; near
tho old Leadvlllo trail, which could
bo distinctly seen abovo us against tho sido
of tho mountain. Looking at his watch, ho
remarked that it was almost timo for 'thorn'
to appear. After kicking tho snow from a
couplo of bowlders wo sat down and in el-
lencc awaited developments. Hy compan.
lon would not say a word, but simply puffed
away at a cigar, his looks being cast ln tho
direction of the trail. Wo waited half an
hour,. but it seemed a week to mo, a cold
wind having arisen, and I was almost frozen
and was wishing myself at home.
"Suddenly my companion clutched mc
nervously by the arm and pointed to the
trull. Tho sight that I saw mado each Individual hair on my head stand on ond, for
there oV tho trail, coming around a shady
angle caused by a bowlder.wos a jack train
of twenty-three animals. 'Thoy all emitted
a faint phosphorescent glow, which mado
them appear all the moro vivid against tho
sido of tho hill. They were loaded with
different articles of merchandise, and the
last ono which tho spectral driver was urging on with his short goad seemed to be
loaded with flour. Every once in u whilo as
tho train slowly filed along, this last jack
would lean his load against a projecting
rock, ad if resting himself. This would
causo the drivor to punch it with his short
stick. Tho weird specters slqwly passed
from view around tho hill, and, moro dead
than alivd from fright, we made our *vay to
whero wo had loft tho horso ond buggy.
My companion informed me, whilo on our
way back to tho clty.that this strange.Bight
could bo scon any dark night"
THE HOTEL DINING-ROOM.
Observations Made by a Man Who Knows
.How to Vsa, His Byes,
Wo arc now in the dining-room of a Protty
Good Hotel, says a writer in tho Detroit
Free Press.
Wo can see soven-nine-ten*twotve-flfteen,
about nineteen men, picking their teeth
whilo they wait for dessert!
Who aro these mon 1
Tliey are tho mon who keep this hotel running.   Thoy uro drummers.
Did you hear that distinguished-looking
lady remark to her escort that thin town
seems to be pretty common)
Whilo you are watching the waiter girls
as thoy burst out of tho kitchen one by one
you might also glance from timo to time at
this distinguishod-looking lady and sou her
cat.
Does sho carry food to her mouth with hor
fork!
Yes, and with her knife, too; knife and
fork alternately. Seel Meat on fork, potnto
on knife; cucumber on fork, cold slaw ou
knife—doesn't she do it welli  ,.r  ■
And who Is this lady!
Sho. Is a leading ludy in a very small
theatrical company playing in tho town ono
night. .....
Seo that nico waiter girl over there leaning uguinst tho wall? M
Does sho see us!
No, not yet.
There! Now she sees ub aud comes to
take our order.
We will have some soup V fish.
When she had brought the soup and fish
tho nlco waiter girl will give ub some butter
and some crackers and some salt and pepper in a dainty, graceful manner; thou she
will slightly move our knife and fork and
fix things all nlco, and then she will aland
quietly by our choir, clear her throat and
say iu a gentle, subdued tone, but very rap-
Idly:
" ItoaB1 muttin' roas} beef broumgravy rous'
chicken roas' Iamb loinervcal stuffed boll
ham tongue queen fritters col* meats." Tho
Italics ure hers. They indleato tho dishes
thoy really have. The others are called eft
really for effect—to make drummers say
thoy have a gcod table. We know wo shall
bo uncertain what she said, all except the
itulics, bo we will just order those, and all
will be well.
Bee how tho beautiful leading lady drinks
water, with her forefinger In tho tumbler.
Did you see that nice-looking couplo over
thoro at the flrst table, this way from the
second window but onoi
Why do they sit there so serious and abstracted, speaking never a word to each
other!
Because they are just married.
Though they're quite still they love each
other dearly.
Thnt freckled young man has just hud a
finger-bowl put before him and hodocsu't
know what to do with it, Perhaps ho
thinks: Can this be soup como again I
The nice waiter girl has just kicked open
tlio kitchen door and there sho comes bearing down on us with a heavy tray. We will
stop looking around and see what she has
forgotten to bring us.
SAVED  BY A  BLUFF.
A Fow Hun-els of Gold Rolled In In Sight
of Depositors Stops a ltiin.
General Mike Ryan, in talking of the
Metropolitan Bank failure, rei-ilntly told a
Cincinnati Tikgram reporter a good story
illustrating the power of bluff. It was in
connection with his assertion that with littlo further aid from the other bunks In tho
city the Metropolitan might have been saved.
He said:
111 have a brother connected- with a bank
In Leavenworth, Kan. Thero nre two banks
thero, and tlio rival to that of my brol her
was in a shaky condition. Tho president
came to Matt and told him tho circumstances, and that if there was a run tho
bank would bo unablo to stand it. Mutt told
him to keep a stiff upper lip, for ho knew
thut the failure of tho other bank meant tho
failure of his own. Ho jumped on iho train,
wont to Kansas City, got -.'40,000 in coin—
gold and silver—In barrels,.ran back to
Leavenworth with tho specie, and got half
a dozen d'-ays to tho depot to take the
barrels to tho bank. Mcaulimo tho
crow' of depositors had begun to gather
at the bank, demanding their money, and
tho old man was talking to them to gain
time. All at onco they saw tko drays coining up, landed down with tbeso barrels.
Matt was with tho treasure, and shouted to
tho crowd to wait about fivo minutC3 nnd
they'd get their money, as it'was thero in
tlio barrels.
" In unloading the barrels, ono of them
dropped and broko, so that, through a
crack, tho anxious depositors could soo the
shining golil, and, as it rolled up tho steps.
of tho bunk, £5-gold pfocee kept dropt/iir:
out, and woro pickcd'Vitf by tho**J.initc*r.
When tho coin was all rolled in, Mat t camo
out again and told all who had money thoro
to go In nnd got It, as tho bank proposed i j
pay them all off and start fresh, and didn't
want such a cowardly lot of depositors any
way. AU the timo ho was piling on the indignation ho didn't want to bo taken at his
word, as tho bank had only $10,000 cash on
hand, against $00,000 of deposits mado. He
had brought (40,000, but there wus still a
shortage of $40,000. However, tlio gamo
worked. Tho people woro reassured by
tho sight of tho barrels of coin und weut
away satisfied. The run was averted and
the bank pulled through all right."

A Teiat Cowboy Hides a Furious Dull lm
a Mexican llulMtliig.
Thobull-flghtora at Paso del Norte woro
recently enlivened during tho proceeding*
by the daring exploit of a Texas cowboy,
says tho Seymour (Tex.') Crtieenl, who wus
cheered to tho echo by tho densely-packed
audience who tilled every accessible nook
In tho vast amphitheater, Tho performance
lagged a littlo, and tho bulls would not
fight In spito of all tbo plcndorcs might do.
Ono or two of tho bulls, aftor having been.
successfully goaded and worri-fd without,
working them up to tho proper lighting
point, had been Igaomlnlously driven out. of
tho arena, and a new ono, full of light und
fairly bellowing with rage, hid just boon
turned Into tho amphitheater, when a Texas
cowboy who was present announced, fori ho
honor and glory of Texas, that he would rido
Uio bull, his legs tied around tho animal tf
neck, hia faco to tho toll, If thoy would lirst
throw tho bull so that ho could got hia lcg*i
properly around and underneath tho bcust's
neck.
He was at once taken at hit word, and
tho mounted Mexican bull-fighters soon hud
tho animal lossood and thrown. Tho caw-
boy then had himself toted in tho' proper
positiou, and how tho furious bull was
turncd loose. Tothe wondorandaitouish*
ment and Intense delight of tho audience,
the animal was unable to shako tho during
cowboy off, who not only kept bis perilous
soat, but, alter somo wild plunges, Buifcdjld*
od by somo means hi so manipulating tho
beast's horns thnt ho was thrown. Tho
Mexican performers rushed at ouco to tho
struggling; mass and In a twinkle hnd tho
Texan untied and released. It was r. won*
dorful pieco of daring and daro-duvi'lry,
and exceeded any thing dono by tho Mexicans. Dainty Tea-Making.

Mr. ]'. G. Strickland, uf this city,
is in receipt of a communication from
two practical millers, asking for information regarding Westminster district
as a point for establishing a full Hungarian roller process flour mill of the
latest design and with a daily capacity
of 75 barrels. They also wish to know
if any inducement would'be offered by
the city to parties building auch a
mill. Mr. Strickland saya fully $15,-
000 worth of machinery would be required for this mill and when completed it would givo employment to a large
number of hands. Tub Columbus
has often pointed out that thia industry would bo of a great value to Westminster aud if utiy f imposition regard-
it is laid beforo the council it should
bo dealt with liberally.

The Udynmer Arrested.
Ladies m the neighborhood of Quadra utrect, near North Park, have
been very nervous of late, owing to
tho sctions of an old man, who has
followed them uu the streets, and in
. one or two instances insulted them.
Last evening, while Oflicer Thomas
was on Pnndora street, two ladies
pointed nut to hiin the old reprobate
in question, who proved to be a very
grey-haired man of over sixty sum-
men. ! He whs walking smartly up the
street whon arrested, evidently to renew hii efforts at terrorising lady pedestrians. The two ladies wero positive us to his identity, and he was accordingly looked up fur the night, and
will appear in court to*day.—fPe</»es*

Mr, John Magwood, Victoria Road,
writes: "Northrop A Lyman's Vegetable

A Shed Wrecked.
Shortly after 0 o'clock this morning
tho freight shed on Austin's wharf
suddenly collapsed and fell to tho
ground a mere heap of debris. A
more complete wreck could not have
been caused by nn explosion of dynamite. The walls fell outwards—the
outer wall falling into tho river while
tho other covered tho railway track.
A fow bales of hay were carried with
tlio wreck into the river, but were
fished out again before getting water
logged. The shed was filled with grutn,
hay and merchandise, but luckily nono
of it sustained serious damage. Mr.
Austin places his loss at fully $G00.
Fortunately no one was on tho wharf
at the timo the accident occurred,
otherwiso fatal results would have attended the collapse. The building at
best was a flimsy affair and not of a
strength calculated to bear tho weigh
of the goods stored in it.
The I.i-.<-t of llie Strike.
A mass mooting of the striking miners was held nt Wellington on Tuesday
piprniiig. and it was reaok-ed that
owing to tho large increase each day
in the number of miners going to work,
that it would be advisable, in tho interests of all, to declnte the strike off.
A motion to this effect was made, and
after considerable discussion it was
carried. A committee was appointed
to interview Mr. Bryden, manager of
the mines, and ask hiin if ho would
give a list of the names of thoso who
would not be employed; but that gentleman declined to do so. Tho action
of declaring the strike ended was largely duo to the married men having
families who did not wish under the
existing circumstances to continue an
ill-udvised light Great satisfaction is
expressed in Nanaimo over the decision of the miners as the stand taken
by the men was looked upon from the
first us unnecessary and uncalled for.
Mysterious.
At about half-prist 2 o'clock this
morning an express wagon was Been to
stop opposite a house on a certain
street, and the driver knocked at the
door in a mysterious kind of n way,
glancing furtively up and down the
street at tlie same time. In answer to
his summons the door was carefully
opened and a low voice Baid, "All
right." A moment after tho door
opened and two men appeared, bearing a long, oblong box, which appeared
to bo heavy. The men were closely
muffled up and their countenances
could not be seen. One of them appeared to be about five feet six inches,
and had a Blight stoop; the other wus
tall. The box carried by the men was
deposited in tho wagon, and the
driver mounted his scat nnd swiftly
drove away. Tho two men returned
to the house, tho door was closed and
all was still. The actions of the men
wero mysterious, to say the least, and
perhaps a deep and dark tragedy lies
under nil these guarded movements.—

A Whatcom despatch of the 12th
inst says: "The report that the Northern Pacific Railroad Company iB nego-
tating for the purchase of the Cantield
railroad franchise from Tacoma to New
Westminster is hardly fresh news. For
a long time propositions have been
pending, the obstacles to the transfer
being that heretofore theNort hern Pacific has beon unwilling to agreo to build
immediately. Both Oakes and Buckley, of the Northern Pacific, are
known to be friendly to the idea of
extending the Northern Pacific Railroad to the lower Sound and to n connection with the Canadian Pacific via
the Oanfield route; and Tacoma also
sees in this projects way to reach the
lower Sound business by rail. It is
natural that tho Not thorn Pacific
would sook terminal grounds at Whatcom, while rival roads like thu Union
Pacific and West Const arc locating
lines to Ship Harbor and to the Canadian Pacific. The Cunliold branch
would givo tlio Northern Pucific a better route to tho Oanandinn Pacific and
a superior harbor on Bellinj-hani Bay,
and at the sntue time tup the Canadian
west of tlio West Coast, so as to reach
trado from the west first. No love
haa been lost between tho Northern
Pacific and Seattle, and their relations
are not strengthened by tho West
Ci ast schemo of the Queen City, so it
is natural that both Tacoma und tho
Northern Pscitio should desire connection with tho northern country via the
Cantield extension of the Northern
Pacific. Evon the loyal city of Vancouver Ib willing to voto a largo bonus
to the Northern Pacific to extend on
to Coal Harbor. Of course the Canadian Pacific don't like this, an it owns
about two-thirds of the land around'
Vancouver; but the people have the
vote and can force the Oanadian Pacifio
to pay most of the bonus to induce hor
rival the Northern Pacific to extend to
thst place. With the Oanfield extension the Northern Pacific would lmve
a direct line from Duluth to the western terminus of the Oanadian Pacific,
Puget Sound and British Columbia are
to-day making more rapid progress
than uny other portion of the United
States, and we can readily conceive
why the great Northern Pacific desires
to extend her trans-continental line to
tho nenrest and best harbor at tho entrance to the Sound from the soa—
Bellingham Bay. The deal for the
Oanfield railroad will probably bo
erected about tho 15th, and although
the Hne will be under tho management of Mr. Oanfield, the Northern
Pacifio will be the virtual owner. The
stockholders of the Oanfield Railroad
will moot in Seattle on the 10th to
transact important business."

A Critic Criticised
The New Westminster Columbian
is too captious and by far too sensitive.
In its issue of yesterday it rail* at the
World severely nnd indulges in adjec*
tives which aro entirely unnecessary
and quito uncalled for. Had our co-
temporary road tho whole of the sentence in reference to the alleged calling out of the militia last Saturday
and been as candid to its opponents as
it claims to bo truthful, it would havo
observed that the sentence is incomplete for tho words "was discussed"
wore omitted from the sentence. Wo
reproduco tho sentence as printed to
show the absurdity of the contention
of our pugilistic neighbor of tho Royal
City, "This created some excitement, and the calling out of tho
militia to prevent a landing of either
the vessel or her passengers." This is
the sentence ns it appeared, add the
words wan discussed, and it will be
complete. Dense indeed must hnvo
been tho Columbian scribo if ho did
uot observo the incniiipletcncsa of this
sentence.—Wort d. Pettishly un*
reasonable must be our esteemed Vancouver cotemporary to imagine that
"The Columbian scribe" can exercise
his assumed gift of clairvoyaucy at
such a distanco nnd road what was in
tho mind of tho World scribe either
before or nfter the fact.

To the Municiptd Electors of New Westminster City:
LADIE3AND GENTLEMEN,-
_ Having been requested by a number of
citizens to allow mysolf to be a candidate
for alderman, nnd having been duly
nominated, I consider it necessary to
make known to you some of my views
regarding a few of the important city
interests.
As regards railway matters, I am
solid; and having been connected with
railways for over six years, I am confident that it is to the best interests of
this oity to make itself a railway centre,
I believo the new council should imnic-
mediately lay tho foundation for a first-
class water works and thorough sewerage system.
I shall endeavor to have all moneys
that can advisedly be taken from our
resources used to beautify our park,
knowing that such is ono of the greatest
health-giving benefits any eity can have,
both for the old as well as for tho young.
This being the year for the provincial
exhibition to be held in this city, I will
do my utmost to make it a grand success,
I will give my hearty support to anything that may be brought forward of
vital interest to this city.
I remain, Ladies and Gentlemen,
Your Obedient Servant,
