NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Says an exchange : Business ia
the Court of Appeals in the state of
New York is said to be three years
behind time. And there arc Canadians woo talk of seceding because
there is a delay'in the courts of a
month or two. Assimilation would
not ho muoh improvement in this
respect.
It pays a man to keep himself,
no matter what his profession or
business, before the publio. His
very name becomes in time a copyright in value. It pays, also, to
have one's name in the best and
most influential papers, A man
who does not not keep himself as
well as his business advertised will
drop ont'of sight—__.

The great American people consumed 70,000,000 gallons of whiskey
last year and had 93,000,000 gallons
left. The also got away with 24,-
080,219 barrels of beer. This confirms the reports of the chief American papers, in all the great towns,
and explains the number and hein-
ousnessof the crimes which stain
the calendars of the police courts,—
Dominion Illustrated.
Says an exchange: It is not
often that a fire is put out with
wine. This was done last week at
Kreuzmach on the occasion of a
fire which broke out at night in the
house of a large wine merchant, soon
enveloping the whole building.
Some sixty hogsheads of wine in
the store could not only not be
saved, but burst, and their contents
ran into the ditch in the garden
behind the house. Here the firemen placed their engines, J with
which they poured streams of wine
upon a burning building, and succeeded in getting tho lira under
control. The funics of the wine
were so strong that the firemen had
to be repeatedly relieved.

It is to be supposed, says an exchange, that in the ordinary course
of events there will continue to bo
"incidents" in the life of Lord Sackville. The latest is his return to
his home, and a London correspondent writes: "Lord Saokville's
return to his home in Kent gives
great pleasure to the folk of Steven-
oaks. He has given the inhabitants
tlie Christmas box which perhaps
they would most desire to receive,
He has announced a reopening of
Knolo House upon one day a week
tothe public. Thus one of the
most in-resting, historio mansions
in England has had taken away
from it the wall of selfishness which
made it for a time the possession
of only a single man. Lord Sackville has acted according to the
best traditions of the English
nobility."      ,	
The rail Hall Ouaetle says of Sir
Robert Morier, whom the German
press is accusing of having sent
notice of the movements of German
troops to the French government
"He was almost tho only Englishman
.ho understood the Schlesv'_
Holstein question, and when the war
of 1870 broke out there was no
German in all the fatherland who
was.moro enthusiastic than he in
tho cause of German unity. When
our military authorities and royalists
here in London wero calculating
tbat the French would beat the
Prussians, Sir Robert Morier astonished them not a little by predicting,
with the confidence born of positive
knowledge, that tho Germans would
be at the gates of Paris bofoie October, and that all the south Germans
would throw in their lot with Prus
sia. Few believed the fervent
diplomat, but events justified his
warnings to the letter. To imagine
that he would send messages as to
the movements of German armies
surreptitiously to Marshal Bazaine
is a notion too utterly fantastic to
be credited by any but an addlepate.
Tho whole man was passionately
enlisted on the German side."
The Boston Ilerakl says: Wo
go on to increase in numbers and
in wealth, but tho republic is to
roceive, perhaps, its severest test in
the opening years of the century
upon which we are entering in
adapting these numbers and wealth
to its system. There is a large
unintelligent vote at the North, as
well as the South of the country.
If the one is suppressed by forco, or
fraudulently deprived of representation, the other is not withont subjection to another influence hardly
less objectionable. The wealth of
the country conies in here as its
clanger. The nation has just seen
how easily wealth may be enployed
to affect a national election. A
serious question is as to whether
this is the beginning of a practice
that is to increase, and, if so, if our
government is strong enough to
bear the strain thus put upon it.
The final problem to confront the
people in tho seoond century of the
republic is, therefore, that involved
in the preservation of sound and
judioious government while the
suffrage is so widely shared by unintelligent people and the power of
money is so potent in it, It is a
serious one.

_888,";025,675.2tt. Amount placed under
the head of general expenses, as municipal hall, salaries, printing, &c. $4,220.54;

pended in the different wards, oa follows:
Ward A, $3,7G5.43j ward B, $8,288.50;
ward C, $9,394.70.
By taking the collector's rolls for 1884

therefrom on real estate, ward A would
be entitled to $4,120.83, wards B and C

therefore be, in ward A, $355 below its
share, in ward B $376, and in ward C

The immediate motive of the attack
of a colored porter named Chandler
on J. A. Sheffield, of Montreal, supt.
of the palace, dinning and sleeping
cur departments of the C. P. ll., is believed to be disappointment on the
part of Chandler in not obtaining pro*
motion, which fact ho seems to havo
believed waa due to the action of
Sheffield. During the afternoon
Chandler wai in tho company's office
and aaid to tno colored porters that
he bad some ono to kilt. After leaving them he went to a pawnshop and
secured a revolver. At 6 o'clock
he proceeded to the station, whore he
met Sheffield on the platform nnd an
alternation followed* Cbandlor was
being controlled by Constable Ferguson and an employee named Barret,
when he pulled out a revolver and fired
the ball penetrating tho breast in the
region of the heart. Chandler, who
is a powerful, tall man of 35, was removed to the police station, expressing no regret for the aot.

Tho resolution passed by the
council last night, at their last
meeting, tendering the thanks of
the board to his worship Mayor
Dickinson {or the able and impartial
manner in which ho has presided
over the council during the year, is
an appropriate mark of recognition.
Mr. Dickinson, as mayor,lias served
the city long and faithfully, and has
assisted in inaugurating some of tho
moat important undertakings and in
shaping some of tho most momentous events in its history. In this
connection, we shall just mention
the 0. P. B, branch and the Westminster Southern. Mayor Dickinson's share in the former is well
known: the latter, during his term
of office, and owing not a little to
his personal efforts and influence,
has been inaugurated and, not withont trouble, assured. Mayor Dickinson, and the retiring council as a
whole, may take to themselves, from
the result of the elections yesterday,
a publio expression of approval for
their conduct in regard to Southern
Railway matters at least. Mayor
Dickinson retires to a well-earned
rest from publio service with the
highest regards and best wishes of
his fellow citizens, who are also
satisfied that his patriotic efforts in
theoity's interests will not cease
with his retirement from the chief,
magistrate's chair.
The battle is over, and victory,
undimmed  and  complete, perches
upon the banners of progress.   A
"courageous and lusty public opinion"   has   "played   its ciub" with
the result we predicted on Friday.
Now tlmt the smoke and turmoil of
the well fought Held have  cleared
away, it will be both interesting and
instructive to examine   men,   particularly into the result, its  significance, the causes that led up to   it,
and the consequences that may   be
expected to follow.   It will be seen,
in the lirst place, that the "straight
ticket"—what has   been denomoni-
nated by somo the '-railway ticket"
—has been returned.    The c mio.t
throughout has been essentially one
of progress.in sentiment and method,
vertus its oounter in both.   But the
railway question haa been pre-eminently the battle ground—the chief
issue, as it were.   Here the heavy
battalions of the two opposing forces
met and trampled the earth in  the
tread nf battle; the wings were engaged in sweeping the  whole   iiold
of modern   progress  in  municipal
matters.   As we have said   beforo,
the victory was complete.   We do
not intend to   bo   understood   as
affirming that, out of the  sixteen
candidates for aldermen, all except
the nine eleoted wore fighting in the
nnti-progress ranks, nor even to say
that outside of "the ticket" there
were not   just   as   good,    and,
perhaps, better,   individual  candi-
detes than some of those eleoted  in
"the ticket."   But the electors recognized—and it is to the credit of
their intelligence   and shrewdness
that they did so,and to their patriotism that tbey acted accordingly—
that "the ticket" represented  and
embodied the spirit and party   of
progress, generally,  and,    on the
Southern   Railway question,   particularly, was "solid" without doubt;
and herein lies at once the significance of the result and  the main
cause which produces it.   Our citizens are to be congratulated  upon
the spirit which they have shown in
this contest, nnd upon the creditable
manner in which tbey havo acquitted themselves.   By their verdict at
the-polls yesterday, crowning as   it
does in a most fitting,   consistent
and conclusive manner the  various
public expressions of the  last   six
months on railway matters and questions of general progress, the  electors—the citizens—of Westminster
not only reiterate that the Southern
Railway is a citizens' affair, and the
honest and   earnest  promoters  of
that and other progressive measures
the city's best friends, but proclaim,
in effect to the outside, world   that
Weitminster  has got  beyond the
village stage, that her citizens  aro
capable of overlooking petty personal predilections und prejudices, and
clique affiiliations, and   pulling together u one man for the  general
welfare, no obstacles will be  suffered to obstruct the city's progress.
The manner in which the late civic
contest was conducted, the interest
and earnestness sustained through-
oat, ut- the result, crowning all,
mark si'very clearly defined epoch in
tho City's history—such a series  of
•vent*r such a contamination, would
harel^unposiible a lew years
mgt   Md presage a most   hopeful
future.    An avowedly progressive
mayor »_.«*-■«" aldermen  have
been-Hmei, «t *uch.   The inrpor*
tarice of this 'tat may   be   empha
■iced ;_bt, with a progressive coun-
aU, having ti. «onfl_nce and  sup-
port ttt •_*o*aj_"*i-e community, we
miy lUtiir-tty rapeot   the surest
and mott _A_tttMttrj   progress in
the future, in eVely respect.   It is
to be H-petl that all, inoluding those
who hare had honest differences  in
thm,*-*.**? cooperate—which we
believe    they   will—to**---'this
worth* end. Id unity ia strength.
The true inwardness of the Windsor, Ont., would-be annexationist
mayor incident is described as follows: SolWhite, the Frenchman
with an English name, who is married to a Yankee wife, aud professes
to believo in annexation, has met
with a sharp rebuff. He is personally quite popular among his acquaintances. Quite naturally, he
aspired to be mayor of his town.
Windsor, Ont., and in the recent
municipal election offered himself as
a candidate for that position. But
some over-zealous Grit correspondent, in order to make what ho supposed was a point in favor of annexation, telegraphed the fact of
Sol's candidature to the Yankee
newspapers, accompanied with the
statement thnt ho was running as
an annexationist. Of course this
soon found its way back to Windsor, and Mr. White's opponents (of
which thero wero three) made hasto
to use it. Mr. Whito camo forward
with an emphatic denial, declaring
that his candidature had nothing
to do with annexation, and that
whatever his opinions on that or
nny other subject, tho issues in the
then ponding contest were purely
local. But notwithstanding this
disclaimer the cry defeated him. He
was snowed under—Mr. Twomey,
the Conservative candidate, being
elected. Very little comfort or encouragement can be extracted from
the above incident for annexationists or their sympathizers on either
side of the line.

A little light has been let in upon
the Morier squabble, says an exchange. The charge made, as everyone remembers, was that while Sir
R. D. Morier, at present British
ambassador at St, Petersburg, was
cliargc d' affaires at Darmstadt in
1870 ho notified Marshall Bazaine,
then defending Motz,of tho advance
of the Germans. Although a denial
of this statement by Bazaine himself was forwarded to Oount Bismarck by Sir Robert Morier with a
request that tho semi-official papers
in Berlin which had boen giving
prominence to the report should
give equal attention to the denial.
The count declined to take any steps
in the matter, and Sir Robert, in
order to set himself right, had to
publish the whole correspondence.
Prince Bismarck having, it is said,
privately given explanations to
the British authorities regretting
the attacks of tho German papers,
tho incident has been sinking out of
sight. .It must have puzzled the
ordinary reader a great deal to know
why the Gorman papers should have
been reviving the trouble—for the
charge was made before—and pursuing the theme with so much bitterness lately. Perhaps the latest
report from Berlin in reference to
the affair will supply somo of the
needed information on this somewhat mysterious incident. The news
is that among the papers of Professor Geffcken letters to him from
Sir Robert Morier were found urging the publication of Emperor
Frederick's diaries. Although the
release of Professor Geffcken indicates a desire on the part of the
German government to let the matter drop, no doubt it still continues
to rankle in the mind of the chan-
cellor,nnd when the Geffcken papers
were seized Sir R. Morier's correspondence—if the lettters alluded to
wero really discovered there—must
have aroused in official circles that
feeling which the Berlin press were
not backward in expressing. This
explanation, at least, must serve till
more definite information ia obtainable.

■A IES80N TO L0VERS.,
Dr. Newberry Fails to Follow His
""   Own Bxoellent Advice.
) "I think from all I havo read and heard,"
•aid young Dr. Newberry, "tho groat bano
of tbo happtnosB of lovers, whether engaged or married, is a lack of perfect
frankness and eoufldonca between thom.
Should nny thing arise to excito doubt in
the mind of eltber party, an explanation
should be at once sought and given, and
tliu* frequently much trouble and unhap-
pinoss may ;be avoided." . • •(
"I perfectly agree with you," responded
Jo-tic Chase, looking up brightly. "And
wi there will never bo any danger of our
iiiiM.ndi-r_tandiiig each other, will there 1"
. "I hope not, darling, he replied.
■ And then thoro was somo little ecstatic
demonstration, such as youthful lovers are
pi-ivil-Ki-'il to indulge in wbon alono.
They had boon but three days ongaged,
nud. hnd known each othor. not quito threo
months—only since tbo young doctor had
••(line to Woodleigh to commence practice
Josio was the belle of the town, and it
Imd not boen without a struggle that the
young doctor had won her in faco of richer
mul, us some peoplo considered, moro da*
-..ruble suitors.    l(        , •*,
Bbe was very pretty and olever, and full
ot warm-hearted and gonorous Impulses,
and also, if the doctor's landlady was to bo
(it-edited, somewhat fond of having hor own
way. .a-
' "Seeing she's an only child," said Mrs.
Larrimer, who hud llvo grown daughters ot
hor own, "she's welt nigh spoiled to death.
Her ma lots her havo her own way, and
though her pa sometimes worries about her
odd doings, she generally manages to bring
him around in the end. •
"Hue's sueh a flirt 1" said Miss Blossom
Lu rriiiier. who, though tbo oldest of tho
cluster of fivo sisters, still languished un*
Ituthercd upon tho parent stem. "Why, I
couldn't tell tho mon sho has led on to propose and thou discarded. It's dreadfully
heartless and cruel!" she added, with tt
sympathetic sigh. '
"Oh, you had hotter loavo tho doctor to
find out all that for himself I" giggled Miss
Guy, the youngest of tho firo. " Only, doctor, you musn't blame us for lotting you be
caught In a man trap. Wo'vo warned you.
He, hoi"
i " Tne last one," said Mrs. Lun-imer, solemnly, "was tlnijtwild young fellow, Jack
Ripley, whom thoy turned out of Uattlopan
College for white-washing the president's
horse and other lawless doings. Ho used
to visit Miss Josephine while hb was hero
ut tho college about two years ago, and just
before you camo to 'Woodleigh ho was back
again and tho two wore thicker than ever.
Borne folks thought it would bo a match,
but her pa Interfered and sent him off. I
must say she changes mighty easy from one
to another. I'd bo sorry to havo one of my
girls act like that!"
(- Tbeso accounts at flrst set the dootor to
thinking a little; but ho was not to bo
frightened from his wooing, and In his happiness as an accepted lover he forgot all
the warnings and croakings of tbls Larrl*
mer family.
-. He know that hts Josio was n little coquettish—a littlo vain it might be—as what
pretty woman is not) Hut thut sho was
either heartless or fickle hu would not believe..
f And It was not until further confidential
•revelations from the Indofatigublu Mrs. Lar*
rimer that an uneasy fooling of doubt and
perplexity began to tako possession of bis
mind.
I "Abeml1* said that lady, as she handed
him a Becond cup of tea, when ono evoning
he had como in rather late from a professional call. "So Mr. Jack Ripley is back
again in Woodleigh. Vi hat do you think of
him, Dr. Newberry!'*
I "1 have not had the pleasure of meeting
hlm."
• "Nol Dear mo, that seems strange when
—when you ore both so muoh at the Chases'.
Be was there yesterday and again this
morning and tbls evening. As they llvo
nearly opposite us, somo of us couldn't help
seeing bim going In and out. But of
courso you bavo heard Miss Josio mention
biml"
. No, the dootor hed not heard any one
mention Mr. Jaok Ripley. And he thought
It rather strange tbat if that gentleman had
really come again a-woolng Miss Josephine
Chase, she should have permitted him to
pay her these vlslts-sho who was his affianced wife.
As usutl, Wbon he was not professionally
engaged, he went after toa to seo Josio. It
was a warm moonlight summer night; tbo
parlor was unoccupied and close, and tho
doctor, while waiting for his betrothed, took
his seat at a side window—a window whioh
opened upon tho pretty garden, and through
which camo a soft, refreshing breozo, ladon
with tho perfume of roses.
* in fact, juat beneath this window wns
what Josle called her rose arbor—a trellis
. covered with a running rose bush, whore
only lust night ho bad sat with her in the
moonlight and talked over tholr plans of
future happiness.
t He had noticed at tbe Ume that sho ap*
peared a little absent and disinclined to
talk. Could It have been on account of thli
visit of Mr. Jock Ripley! And now, as the
thought occurred, he became awaro of low
voices in the arbor, Beforo he could rise
and move away these words, In Josie's
voice, slightly raised, camo distinctly to hia
ear:!
"I tall yob, Jack, no one suspects ns.
But yon eome too often te tha house. Ton
must keep away, and thil must be your last
visit before-"
Her voice sank and the rest was inaudible.
But a reply camo in a man!i tones—low and
tonderand pleading.
"You are suro tbat you will not fall me
at the last-that X may trust implicitly to
your promisol"
Then more ourMrOBWtiJ -woken •»■*■
tencesoBM to the«ar ol theineonscionBiy
epell-bound Ustener.
"What weuU tt.»<dwtt-tilrflr if he knew
of tb.il'-
"Why, I think be would not oxactly approve," camo in Josie's laughing voice; "bnt
ao long as I am unmarried I havo a right to
consult my own inclinations. As to papa,
he will be angry with us, of courso, but
only for.e time. You will soo him with bis
benevolent faoe glowing with a smilo of
aatliteotlon, while he spreads out bla dear
pudgy handi and says:' Bless -you, my ehildron.'"
I And than they both laughed, ■
Just then a servant's vote* wu heard!
"MiisJosiel Yon'ro wanted in tho par
lor, miss."
-Than was a suddon rustling of tho roses
as thp girl sprang up.
" Romembor, Jack, to-morrow evoning at
eight precisely. Can you soo tho dross I
have on—brown ovor a striped undorsklrM
Well, It will be this dress and a thick brown
vail. Andyrn must be standing oisotly by
that poaiar tno I showed you. Oood bye 1
you badbetter leave by tho garden gate ta*
■tead of going lato the _ouae.»l__ _ awaai*
Then the doctor rognlncd sufficient preen
once of mind to move away and scut jiiin-j
self us far as possible from tbe open window.
Josio camo in flushed, excited, and, despite her evident ofTurt to appear ite1 usual,
iitff and constrained.
The doctor did not remain lonfe. ^Ie felt
too shocked and wounded to know what
course to pursue in this sudden and unexpected slate of thinge.
Ho would go homo and think it over. And
tho result of his thinking was that he concluded to Bay nothing to Josephine just
now but to watch her movements the noxt
evening and find out somctihiug moro
dolinito by which to shape his courso.
<- It was a little past seven .o'clock the next
evening! whon, watching from his offlce
window, ho saw Josephine trip lightly down
tho stops of hor fothor's houso, attired in
the brown and striped dross, and a little
hat, around whioh was tied a brown vail.
He saw hor faco before Sho pulled the
folds of tho vail close, and oven caught her
glance as sho looked shyly ovor towards
his offlce, as If fearful of boing scon by him.
Thon sho walked on- very-tost, while ho followed at a safe distance,: i
Bhe went first to a house in which he
kue-V ii sister of hor father residcd-Mics
Almcria Chase—a well-to-do maiden lady
whoso prink and severe aspect ho had
never liked.
Here sho remained about half an hour,
then reappeared, walking hurriedly as before and taking hor way, not homeward,
but towards tho suburbs of tho town.
Entering o sort of ituio or narrow road,
with a thick hedge on ono side, sho camo in
eight of a poplar trco at a turn of the lane.
Hero a man was standing—n tall, handsomo
young fellow—who, on seeing her, camo
hastily forward and received her, apparently half fainting, in his arms,
At the-same moment ho mado a signal,
and a carriage, until now hidden by the
turn of tho lane, camo up. '
Thu two hurriedly entered it, and they
drove away at a rapid pace. Thoy wero
clearly going to catch the north-bound train
at the nenrest station.
The doctor, although he notv understood
the plan, made no motion or attempt to op*
pose it.
"If she prefers him to mc, let her go,"
be said and, In forlorn wretchedness and
bitterness of soill, returned to his offlce,
Thu Clmae houso opposite was shut up
and tho windows closed, as though Its life
and light Imd forever departed.
Did the parents know as yet what had
happened? Should ho break it to thom—
moro gontly, perhaps, than others would
do, and in their woo find somo soothing for
his own. ■*■
He wulkcd slowly up the front steps to
tho porch, and thore lingered. Be could
not Und it in his heart to enter the house
where her presence was no longer, and It
was with an effort tbat he gavo tho bell
knob u pull which scorned liko tho wrench*
ings of his own heart strings.
Tho door was instantly opened, and turn*
ing ho beheld Josie standing sullenly be*
fore him.
"I havo beon expecting you for more
tban an hour," sho said, "But," catching
sight of his pale nnd startled face, "what is
thomatterl Are you ill."
"Not but I—I don't understand. I did
not expect to seo you. X thought you hod
gone away."
"Gone away!"
" Ycs-with Jack Ripley," bo said, sternly.
And Josle, to his surprise, broke Into a
laugh.
Then, changing, she suddenly became
very grave and dignified,
"How could you have had such a thought
of mo, Charlie!"
"Josio, was it you whom I saw leave the
bouse about seven o'clock this evoning,
wearing a brown dross and vail!"
. "Yes, cortalnlyl"
" And you met a gentleman In the poplar
lano—"
"No, no!" Bho interrupted, again laughing. "That wus my cousin, Mny Hurding
—Aunt Aline.-ill's niece. Wu are of tho
Biimc sine and exchanged drosses In order
te deceive uunt's watchful eyes. But como
in and let nio toll you all about it. 1 cmld
not before, being bound to secrecy."
i And thon she told blm how Jack and
May hnd for years loved each other and
been kept apart by Miss Chase, who had
taken charge of May when .a child, nnd
beeti lo her u sort of domestic ty runt.
Whenever Jack was In town, Miss Chase
kept u doublo watoh upon tho poor girl,
and it was only by the scheme which hod
been so successful that May was enabled to
elude hor argus eye and get'safely away
with hor lover.
" l'upu hud alwuys boon In favor of tbo
maich, but for. peace's sake did not like tn
interfere with his sister Almorio.
"Ho will scold a littlo when ne finds out
my part iu it," Bho said, "but will bo delighted all the same that May is happy at
last. No one oould ever say n word agaiust
Jack cxeupt that bo was a 'littlo wild aud
miscliK-voUB at college; but bo bas sobered
now, uud just Buttled down to tho practice
of luw. And us to whether' Dr. Newberry
will htamur"
Bho paused, and looked up half archly,
half Inqnit-iugly into his faco.
"No, darling—not now," ho answered;
"altuougJi you have caused me the most
misorublo hours of my life."
"Charlie," sho said, softly, us sho allowed him to draw her gOntly towards him,
'*if you had practiced your own theory and
sought an explanation of what upiicnrcd to
you bo suspicious, you would huvo been
Bparcd thoso miserable hours."
••'Yea, darling, it waa my fault. But this

HELPING HIM  OUT.
How a Smart Young Lady Brought One of
Ber Admirers to Time.
An unkind story, even if truo, was told a
Pittsburgh Dispatch man while he was in
England, of a young lady who married a
stuttering man,
The young man was undoubtedly astutterer
of tho most positive order, for I have heard
him go through paroxysms to get out a simple "Good morningl" The lady whom he
subsequently married was of an eminently
practical turn of mind. No maiden modesty
or bastifalnest cloyed her methods. She
spoko to tho point, and never left a thought
uncxpresied if she deemed It pertinent.
After he hod called upon her somo three or
four times sho decided that it was about
time for hor to know his intentions. So tbe
next timo ho called, after thoy bad seated
themselves as usual on the sofa, sho sold
quietly but firmly: " Mr. Smith, I am much
flattered by tho Interest you have taken In
me, and tho flowers you have just given me
are pretty, but 1 fool that I should bo.not doing my duty If I delayed any longer asking
what your intentions are; whither do theso
attentions and presents leadf"   .;
Young Mr. Smith rose to HK-feet and a
blush rote te his cheek. Be essayed to
speak. For a moment his lips and tonguo
seemed paralyzed. Then he managed to
got out " M-M-M-M-M-y d-d-d-d-d"-but he
could get no further. The d might havo
stood for nny number of words, but Miss'
Smith, justifiably, perhaps, interpreted it to,
stand for darling, and the youth's acuta'
embarrassment to a modest ooataalon in
making a formal proposal.
Any way. she took Mr. Smith by ttto hand
and, looking inwbis ctfee, exoWto-d: t'Mr.
Smith, 1 appreciate your embrtttafciaent,
bbt I -understand what you wish to i say.
You may speak te papu, and if bo approves,
so do I."
Thoy wore married u fow months tutor,
but Mr. Smith has never explained satb
factorily to his friends whether he stuttered into matrimony of his own freo will
or against It	
CoItti'-bliV* OomI King.
A visitor from Victoria saya it lithe pop*
ulnr impression that Dunsmuir, tbo coal
king of British Columbia, has an Income of

Tho voting yealorday was not nearly
so one-sided ns many expected it would
be, and the idea that the two tickets
would be voted straight turned out to
be entirely »rong. The straight

while only two straight votes were

(heir votes generally among the whole

in favor of the popular ticket. Two

Distant fields always look _ reen, but
the Yukon and Mackenzie River districts will not prove very inviting if tho
report of Mr, Ogilvie, D.L.S., upon
them is to be relied upon. Mr. Ogilvie spent last winter on the Yukon,
near tho international boundary. On
December 7th the sun set, and it did
not rise again until January 5th.
During the long night the thermometer went down to 55° below zero, and
this though the camping place was well
to the south of the Arctic circle. The
far northern territory is distinguished
for its cold and for its gold. Yet, on
the Yukon, a miner can only make

Petition for Roads.
A petition has boon circulated among
the residents of the North Arm, and
very largely signed, asking the pro'
vinciol government to complete the
road from New Westminster to the
North Arm school house and to locate
a new road to the Indian reservation
in a straight lino bo that it may intersect tho Vancouver road. The petition also asks that tho present road
bo placed in good repair, Tho Westminster city council has been asked to
co-operate iu thia matter, and, it Ib
expected, definite action will be taken
at the next mooting of tho council.
The importance of thia road to Westminster is very great, and the whole
community should be n unit in urging
upon the government the necessity of
its construction. A petition will probably be circulated in Westminster
asking that the road be located and it
should receive at least a thousand signatures,

I'rof. Heine;
The llcdpath Lyceum, Boston, speaking of Prof, Heine, who ia to appear at
the Oddfellow's hall to-morrow night,
says: Mr. Joseph Heine has already
gained critical favor throughout the
civilized world. This extraordinary
musician, though of German extraction,
was born in England. His early talent
won recognition in that country, and
he profited by the instructions of such
masters aB Tolbeccjue and Sainton,
Vieuxtemps, Sivori, Joachim, and
other great performers, also gave him
the benefit of their experience nnd
wonderful abilities. In an extended
tour, Mr. Heino gained the moat distinguished honors from the potentntes
of the globo, with the Bishops of York,
Canterbury and Oxford, as well na the
highest praise from the critics of all
nations. Mr. Heine introduces into
concerts a great musical novelty in the
form of solo playing on a common tin
whistle. It Ib a performance uo less
artistic than amusing and extraordinary, and it lias won tho praise of the
severest critics
re-It,** Bad Boy.
This most amusing play was witnessed by a large audience at Herring's
Opera House last night. From beginning to end the audience was kept
in roars of laughter and when the curtain fell on tho Inst act everyone regretted the fun was so soon over. J.
J. Williams, tho "Bad Boy" was a
very bad boy indeod nnd played his
part perfectly. Whenever he appeared it was the signal for a general roar
from the audience. Frank Oalburt
the "Grocery man" haa a perfect German dialect and created endless fun.
He is a comedian of rare ability and
shared equal honors with the "Bad
Boy," MissLaure Adams, as Mrs.
Peck, proved herself to be a very
clever actress, and she possesses a fine
contralto voice and pleasing manners.
Miss Effie Adama, tho Bad Boy's best
girl, ia a bright and talented little actress and sings woll. As an Irish
comedian R. J. Wallace, the policeman, made a decided hit. All the
songs were well sung and tho whole
entertainment waa decidedly good.

Celebrating the victory.
After the announcement last night
that the straight "popular ticket" had
been elected, a tremendous cheer went
up from the aeveral hundred people
assembled in the Hyack Hall. Those
waiting outside caught up the cheer
and it passed like lightning from one
end of Columbia street to the other,
everyone guessing correctly tho cause
for tho enthusiasm. Thero was no
ond of handshaking for a couple of
hours and the general enthusiasm was
very great. About 11 o'clock a row of
bonfires wore lighted on Columbia
street to celebrate tho event and these
wero kept burning for more than nn
hour. A number of alderman-elect
and their friends met in the Club
where n fine supper wns soon prepared,
and a jolly couplo of hours wero spont
in hearing tho further sentiments of
tho alderman on the is3u.es nt stako.
It is perhaps unnecessary to say that
they are more deeply pledged than
ever. The rejoicing over the wholo
city was great, and this last and decisive victory of the progressive party
Is considered Westminster's grandest
triumph.
A (runningBlow.
Tho poor old Columbian haa received its death blow at last. It has
struggled bravely on under adverao
circumstances and vexatious disappointments for some time, and waa
just beginning to be able to hold ub
own nicely when down fell the proverbial straw which is generally supposed to break tha camel's back. The
calamity occurred as follows: This
afternoon one of the persons who was
foremost in tbe ranks of the "injunctors" entered thia office and threw on
the desk a weekly Columbian, saying:
"I will not take that paper any longer," We bowed our heads submissively to the awful decree and assumed
a cheerfulness whleh would havo done
honor to any martyr, even under less
trying circumstances than suffered by
us. The tone used towards us
was imposing and magnificent
and we were awed. Ye
heavens observe, the injunctor had
stopped his paper. A weekly paper
was sufficient for thia injunctor, but
he stopped it and thereby deprived us
of the two thousandth part of our subscription list. We will endeavor to
bear up and struggle along under this
crushing blow, but ihould it prove too
powerful and too terribly severe for
our broken constitution, wo limply ssk
that a modest atone be raised to our
memory and on which the words he
carved, "Killed by Injunctors."

City couHCO-.
The last meeting of tho council for
1888, and the last under the old charter, was held in tho council chambers
st 8 o'clock lost night. Present,
Aldermen Shiles, Elliott, Hoy, Ovena,
DeBeck, and Calbick.
His worship reported verbally that a
number of citizens, and a majority of
the members of the council, had requested that the auditor's statoment
be published in the oity newspapers,
and, acting on that request, be had
instructed the clerk to havo tho statement published on the best terms he
eould make. As a result, the statoment had been published in both newspapers, and 250 copies printed in
pamphlet form, at a cost of $75, whereas last year the cost of publication was
about $130. The action of the mayor
was approved.
An nccount of $10 was prosented
from Davio & Pooly for opinion re
trust coin mitteo furnished by telegraph
to the chairman of finance. On motion
of Aid Shiles, seconded by Aid. Hoy,
the nccount was referred to Aid. Herring fur payment, as the council declined to be responsible for the unauthorized acta of its individual members.
Moved by Aid, Shiles, seconded by
Aid. Hoy, That it is the opinion of this
council that the Westminster Woollen
Manufacturing Co. is justly entitled to
any sums of money voted as a bonus1
and that tho refusal to pay the bonus
voted by the provincial legislature, on
which the payment of the cily bonus
depends, is arbitrary and unfair.—
Carried.
Ou motion of Aid. Hoy, seconded by
Aid. Shiles, tho sum of $25 oxtra was
voted to tho acting clork for tho month
of December last,
Aid. Hoy said he had received a
complaint from Mr. Tierney that a doctor had been sent to examine him to
ascertain whether he hnd small-pox,
and he wished to knew by what authority this had been done. He thought
it wus injurious to the interests of the
eity to send abroad the impression that
contagious disease existed here. Last
year thoy had Bmall-pox for several
weeks at Vancouver, but they were
prudent enough to keep tho matter
quiet.
The mayor explained that it had
beon reported to him that Mr. Tierney
was Buffering from small-pox, and lie
considered it proper in the interest of
the oity that the truth should be
definitely known. After consultation
with some members of the board of
health, it was decided that a doctor
should bo Bent to make an examination;
and he waa (-lad to state that thero was
no foundation whatever in the report.
He thought the action taken wu not
only in the public interest, but also in
the interest of Mr. Tiorney, as it
showed the rumors respecting him to
bo without foundation.
Tho business being finished, on
motion of Aid. Hoy, seconded by Aid
Shiles, a vote of thanks was tendered
to His Worship Mayor Dickinson for
the ablo and impartial manner in which
ho had presided over the council during the year. The resolution was put
by the clerk, and carried unanimously
by a standing vote.
His worship returned thanks for
tho resolution, and for tho courtsey
and assistance roceivod from the council on all occasions. He belioved the result of to-day's election waa entirely
satisfactory to a large majority of the
citizens, and it was a marked endona-
tion of action taken by the counoil on
the railway question. It afforded him
great pleasure and satisfaction to
hand over to his successor the seals of
office, for he believed that thoy might
without misgiving entrust the affairs of
tho city to the gentleman who had
been chosen by the people as his
successor. (Cheers).
Tho council then adjournod sine die.

CIMltwhack Temperance.
(Reported hy a Correspondent.)
On Monday evening, Jan. 14th, a
meeting wai called in Henderson hall,
for the purpose of organizing a literary
society, and tho establishment of a
broad temperance platform in connection with it.
Mr, Davison was oleoted to fill the
chair, and briefly explained tho object
of the meeting,
Mr. Wilkinson was tho first speaker,
and strongly advocated the organize*
tion of a mutual improvement' society.
He urged the importance of the temperance pledge in connection with it.
He did not agree with the Rev. Mr.
Patterson that a man must be converted beforo he can be a temperance man.
Ho thought a prohibitory law would be
a great boon to this settlement, and
that the people would bo happier if
liquor oould not be had,
Mr. Cawley (reeve) said ho had
come to tho conclusion that a man was
bottor off without liquor; but he did
not always think so. He did nut think
a prohibitory law would be best, Ho
did not understand the laws of either
God or man to be prohibitory, and ho
oould never agree to compelling men
to stop drinking. He thought if the
ministers of the several churches would
meet and lay down a platform that all
denominations could endorse, it would
bu a good thing, and he would give it
his support.
Mr. Mellard said he was not a drinking man, although he had been whero
it was used all his life. He had been
accustomed to taking it in the old
country—he never touched it here,and
felt just as well or better without it.
He would not advocate organizing auy
order that would interfere with the ex
is*ting Good Templars lodge.
Mr. A. C. Wells said that he was i
Good Templar, and did not wish to
make a secret of it. He thought it was
a good order. Its pledge is for life,
but if a pledge iB good for three days,
or three weeks, or three months, then
it must be good always. He thought
temperance agitation always did good,
and the moro organizations that had
for their object the suppression of the
liquor traffic the sooner it would be
accomplished.
Rev. Mr. Tato said there waa great
need for a literary society, as the
young people wero growing up without
any seeming tasto for reading and self-
improvement, and he thought an organization of this nature, where de*
bates would take place, speeches be
made, essays read, and opportunities
for general improvement given, would
be a grand thing. Ho thought the
temperance pledgo in connection with
it was very necessary; and if people
could bo made, and kept sober, thoro
would then be some hope of their considering the more serious matter of the
soul's salvalioe.
Rev. Mr, Patterson said he expected
shortly to leave Chilliwhaok, bonce
did dot feel ao much interest in this
schomo, as though he were going to
romain among them. He believed it
would bo of lasting good to them, nnd
would have entered heartily into it
were it not'for the fact already stated.
Although a persistent temperance
worker, he did not soe eye to eye with
all temporanco advocates. He did not
beliove a man would be sent to perdition for taking a glass of liquor. There
had beon holy men in all ages who had
taken it, and were none the worse for
it. The greatest of tho Apostles even
recommonded it to one of his fellow-
laborers, and nowhere in God's word
were men commanded not to take it.
He did not believe in compelling men
to give it up, as the desire would still
be for it; but we ought to try and persuade mon to give it up. He complimented the Rev. Mr. Alton on being
the most energetic temperance worker
In the community, and the people had
only to know him aright in order to
love him.
Dr, Henderson spoke in favor of the
organization, and would givo it his
hearty support. He thought denomi*
national differences ought to be unknown in temporanco orders. It was
said the Good Templars' Lodge was
run by Methodists, and ho did not
think It ought to bo so.
Mrs. Tate said Bhe was a Good Templar and also a member of tho W.C.I'.
U., snd had never entertained the
thought of either of those orders beiug
denominational, but if all other denominations decline to do their part,
are the Methodists to give up also.
Rev. Mr. Patterson—Certainly not;
go right on.
Mr. Crookshauks aaid if everybody
did their duty in the matter, aim were
all united in their efforts to save men
from drink, it would be better than
raising objections to any order of temperance.
Mr. Dumville made a telling speech,
Siving hia own experience with tho
rink traffic. He said that every organization ought to bo helped which
aimed to koep men from drink.
Mr. A. C. Wells moved, seconded
by Mr. Cawley, Resolved, That we request Revs. Allen, Patterson and Hall
to formulate a constitution and pledge
for the proposed literary and temperance organization.   Carried.
Mr. Davison made the dosing
speech, and showed clearly the duty of
all voters, to send only those men to
parliament who would pledge themselves to do all in thoir powor to destroy this monster evil, whose effects
were most appalling to all who would
read the statistics.
