The Tacoma Ledger tays: A
number of the masters of tlie whaling vessels recently imperiled in the
Arctic sea* paid a visit in San Francisco to Captain Emory, of the
United States steamer Thetis, to
thank hiru for hit gallant awriceo
in their behalf. Tlie captains intend at somo future time to
raise a fund to place a
stained-glass window in a church
either at Sun Francisco or in Sitka,
Alaska, and dedicate the same to
St. Emory. Captain Emory is the
gallant sailor who was at the rescue
of the Greeley Arctio expedition,
and is also a son of the famous General Emory, commander of one ef
the army corps during the rebellion.
1. A traveller tells the following
story to illustrate the insensibility
of Maoris to pain:—"My friend,"
he says, "had given a Maori a pair
of boots, but they wero too short
for him. For some time he endear
ored to force them on, but thi* wns
impossible ; so he seized a small
tomnhayvk (hatchet) and.cut off his
large toe to the length of his othor
toes, and then applied somo juice of
the llax plant ('Pliormium tenax')
to the cut to stop the bleeding, and
pulled on the boot, which was'not
removed till the ' toe healed. Ho
pnt on tlio othor boot after n similar operation. I have known several instances which appear to prove
that the Maoris are less sensible to
pain than Europeans."

An exchango says:   Philadelphia
is true to its traditions at the city
of brotherly lovo, having eat the ox-
drdple of discarding 'the prejudice
against color. Colored people are'
now admitted to its hotels, theatres,
arid restaurants without, distinction
or discrimination. It is a sad commentary upon the leading principles
of the Union that in most of, the
American cities coloured persons
are treated as pariahs and outcast*
by the whites. The action of Philadelphia will be applauded by all
humane nnd right-thinking people,
who must think it a mockery of
enfranchisement to knock of the
chains of an enslaved race while!
continuing to deny them thb rights
and privileges of freed men.

Henry Labouohere says : "I
heard the other day a good story of
tho German Emperor. During tho
recent tnanmuvres he was riding
with his staff and came across two
huge waggons on the Berlin road.
Asking where thoy wort* going, the
drivers replied that they wore carrying food for tho officers of the
Guard, On this he ordered them
back to Berlin, In the evening ha
went to the portion of tho ground
where tho Guard was camped and
found tho plHuors hanging about
looking, liko Sister Anno, along tho
Berlin road with a hungry air.
"WhntiBlho matter V ho asked.
Thoy said that thoir provisions Imd
not arrived, and that they were
to reach them from Berlin in a
small cart, "I havo just ridden
along the Berlin road," said the
Kinperor, "and I can assure you
tlmt there was no cart; but I met
two huge waggons, which were
bringing provisions for the officers
of some regiment, and, as I thought
that officers and soldiers ought to
fare alike during the manoeuvres, I
sent them back to Berlin."        .

n horrible outrage, murder and suicide
come from Nevada, to-day. Tho out-
rags and murder was committed about
three miles south of Nevada yesterday.
Miss Wiay, accompanied by George
Korbe, who taught the district .school
and boarded with Mrs. Wray, went to
the city. Korbe returned last night
alone and ^ said tbe girl had bean
dragged from the buggy and murdered
by two unknown men. The body was
found in a clump of bushes near the
roadside, the young woman's. throat
having been cue from ear to ear.
Korbe was placed under guard and
during the niglit committed suicide by
taking poison, thus escaping lynching.
The coroner's inquest developed the
fact that the girl hsd been outraged
and then murdered.   ' ■ -       * ''

If our citizens have grown at all
sleepy ori tho civic election question,
at would appear to be the case, tho
article in another column, from a
contributor, headed "Publio Opinion," ia well fitted to givo them tlie
■tart they need. That's the way to
talk to them 1 Mr. Public Opinion.
While agreeing in the main with our
correspondent's recommendations
und auggeationi, we think that the
beat lire protection for this city
would be a thorough system of
water-works nnd firo hydrants. Thu
olectrio alarms, howevor, should be
established. When thero wasn't
any fire, they could be set oil' occasionally to wakon people up. With
respect to the market, the importance of which our correspondent
evidently appreciates, wo think he
looks at the advantages of such an
institution from one side only—that
of the oity merchants or tradesmen.
We believe that it would prove of
considerable advantage to two other
classes beside-the country producers and tbe city consumers. In
fact, thero is no doubt of this being
the oase. The suggestion about
tableting the streets and numbering
the houses is a good one, and shows
that our correspondent is alive to
'the necessity of throwing off our
village swaddling clothes and adopting metropolitan ways. This improvement, in conjunction with the
suggested free postal delivery in the
near future, we heartily endorse. It
will not do for us to be content to
crawl on forever at the tail end of
modern progress, and several lengths
behind our rivals in many respects.
Other matters are taken up by our
correspondent whioh are worthy of
attention by those aspiring to represent the city in the next municipal
counoil. Still others, such as water
works, sewerage, a city hall, street
improvements, tec, have been referred to in The Columbian on
former occasions, and should suggest themselves to anyone conversant
with the city's needs and prospects.
The eomplimeuts which our correspondent passes upon the retiring
counoil for the services in the Southern Railway matter are also appropriate and deserved, and we trust
that the now council may ably
second their efforts in what remains
to be done in this important matter.
It is time that a platform wore
formulated and candidates brought
out for aldermen, who should be re
quired to express themselves publicly on all questions touching the city's
interests in the immediate future.
It is a matter of general satisfaction
that Mr. Hendry has agreed to stand
for mayor for the ensuing year.
What we want now are nine good,
progressive aldermen to co-operate
with him in working for the eity's
best interests.   Let us  have some
" Honesty is the best policy," says
the old taw; or, at a wag has put it,
"Honesty is the best policeman."
Speaking of ihe adulteration of
Chinese teas, the London Standard
of a recent date says: "It was an
evil day for Oliini when her tea
merchants began to tamper with the
quality of tlie commodity which has
long formed her principle article of
export to the western world. The
progressive deterioration in Chinese
teas has encouraged the production
of that article elsewhere to suoh an
extent that India and Ceylon have
every year been growing more formidable rivals for the Celestials, and

the Eatt Indies a new rival ha* appeared in the colony of Natal, in
South Africa, It is only some six
or seven yean ago that an enter
prising English settler planted a few
acres witli tea. His fint crop, produced in 1881, amounted to only
BOO pound* weight.   Lut year the
Sreduction had so increased that
Tatal sent about 100,000 lb*, of tea
to market. The new induitry it in
not proving to profitable that it is
fast spreading in the colony, and
erelong we may expect to find
Natal competing with India, Ceylon,

plan, nnd to *how,its ^practicability,
if is proposed to sink perforated
iron pipes in the river bed and the
approaches to the harbor, through
whioh petroleum can bo forced to
the surface of the river by machinery
and at a high pressure. In this
way a Heroe stream of blazing oil
can be sent down on the enemy's

Tt is claimed by the projectors that
flame can be produced in this way

with a terrifio force on the attacking
vessels many miles from the point
whero the oil is supplied to the system of submerged pipes. Iron vessels could not pass through this lake
of fire, because it could be mado to
extend many miles along the river.
An experiment in connection with
the scheme will be made at Fort

A. Biggar hue spent tho summer in
subdividing, says the Winnipeg
Commercial, lie not a great distance
from the settlement of Mormons on
Lee's Creek, and he has consequently had an opportunity 'oi aBeeing
something of theso Utah emigrants.
Speaking generally, Mr. Biggar says
that the settlement is one tbat he
would have pride in taking a visitor
to as giving an example of tho agricultural possibilities of the country.
They havo boen thero only two seasons, but already they have put in
the solid improvements of old settlements. Their roads have been
made and are well graded, they have
planted large quantities of trees,
their gardens are thoroughly worked
and in the best of order, all indications of the genuine thrift and sturdy
energy of the newcomers. ■ The
plan of the settlement is a village in
whioh all the houses are located; the
homesteads or rather farms, lying
out on the adjoining bench lands]
As to the religious tenets of these
people, they profess ito be striot followers of the Apostle Joseph Smith,
but they claim to havo eschewed
polygamy, and as far as Mr. Big.
gars observation went, none of the
male settlers are comforted by more
wives than tbe law of the country
allows. They seem to be perfectly
satisfied with the prospects of their
new home. They are already furnishing large quantities of farm, garden and dairy produco wherever it
is needed in the south, and indeed
their activity in trade has already
made outside competitors very
jealous. Mr. Biggur don't believe
they will be a drawback to tbe
country. It is to be hoped that this
sanguine opinion may prove correct;
but in spite of the industrial superiority of these strange peoplo, they
have proved a far from satisfactory
element of population in the United
States, and it is to be feared that our
experience with them may yet yet

DEAR Sirs :—I bought one of your Maxwell Binders last
July, and it has given me the best of satisfaction in every respect,
My grain and straw was very heavy, and a good deal of it was
badly lodged, and I thought it could not be cut by machine, but
thanks to the Maxwell machine, it picked it up and cut it like a
charm, I have visited many of the surrounding farms but have
yet failed to see any grain cut so clean as mine, I feel proud of
the machine and would strongly recommend the Maxwell above
all others. Yours faithfully,
dwnoato ' James Faulkner.

A AN ANCIENT CHARITY.
,l)N.E   Of   THE   MOST • EXEMPLARY
INSTITUTIONS  IN   NEW. YORK.
-Xlio -'O-snMml Society of Meclianles Md
Tntdesmen"-It Practically Inaugurated the System of Free Public
Schools In the Empire City—Founded
ln 1785, It Flourishes More and Moro
—A Detailed and Interesting Hlltory
i     of the Society,
.   {Copyright 1969.)
The recent admission of Mayor Abram
S. Hewitt to membership In the"General
Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen" ot
Kew York brings to public notice en old
organization which, despltu Its wealth,
power aud honorablo record ia almost an-
known to tho average citizen. It. may bo
soriously questioned, nevertheless, if
"The Mechanic^ Society," aa it is familiarly called ,h„-.3aot been of f-rcatc r Advantage to tho people of Manhattan Island
than any one of the wealthier and more
powerful charities which minister tothe
samo class.
The society finds a homo in a handsomo
building At 18 East 10th atreet, J****t off
Fifth avenue.; The hall is a double build-
in-*** covering the entire plot two hundred
by forty feet, and is four stories high. It
contains reading-rooms In whtch are kept
the leading newspapers, periodicals aud
magazines, a superb, library of over
70,000 volumes, ard a valuable collection
ot Americana and other objects of historical Interest; a school and olass rooms
ln which are taught stenography, freehand drawing, mechanical drafting and
modeling to young men and women who
are unable to pay tuition In other schools,
Des-iite the freedom of, the library, the
'majority of its readers are of the -great
olass for whom It was founded, vis., men
ami women who work for u living. Mechanics, clerks, apprentices, shop-girls,
sewing women, accountants aud bookkeepers have a very large representation.
All vocations are on the list, however.
Young and ambitious actresses, singers
nnd ballet-girls attend every day to mak*
up for their schoolgirl deficiencies. Poor
lawyers, unsuccessful doctors and theological students make a liberal nee of
both the circulating and reference libraries, especially tbe latter. Inventors and
those interested in patents are alao familiar faces to the officers. Some of tho
readers are veterans—there being a namber who havo patronized the shelves for
more than forty years. Many of these
have been prosperous In lifo cud are generous coutrlbutori to the Institution from
which they have derived so much benefit,
Books, pamphlets, pictures and money
are constantly received from this class
aud still farther increase tho wealth and
beneficence of tho society. i
The secretary of tbe society, Stephen M.
Wright, a well-known gentleman wbo devotes mnch of his leisure time tb the
duties of the office, said: "Our society Is a
cur loua epitome of thechsnges and growth
of the metropolis. It was started ln 1785
by twenty-two mechanics, The founders
were simple hard working but ambitious
mechanics who came together to better
their condition and to provide for members who through old age, disease or
acoldent might be reduced to penury. I
do uot think that In their early'years
they looked forward to more than this.
But as their organization grew and their
wealth Increased they opened new channels of benevolence. The first of these
was a system for tho education of young
men and women who are unable to attend
other schools or to pay for their tuition,
thus practically inaugurating the system
of free public schools ot this city, As the
the years brought about changes in social
condition the education Riven was slowly
changed to meet new wants.-and mow
•specially to meet -the now prevalent demand for skilled clerical labor. So excellent Is the lust ruction given ln this regard
that every year wo are oompelled to refuse
applications for admission for the men
look of accommodations.
"The same prog: :ss has markedthe history of the library, whioh now; has a circulation of 850,000 volumes per annum.
"Tho early mcuibers could not have had
muoh money, as their Initiation fee was
bnt sixteen' shillings sterling, about four
dollars and a half at present values, and
as some time elapsed before this was all
paid In.
"The organisation prospered from tho
first and many of Its members got rapidly
abend in life, as, for instance, the first
chairman became sheriff two years after
tha organisation, and today the membership contains many of tho leading oitizens
who started life as sturdy mechanics and
have risen to positions of trust and lnflu-
"Tht society has had an uneventful
career, so far as trouble Is concerned, bnt
ono marked by continued activity and
•access. While It expends nine-tenths ot
Ito ineomo apon charitable and educational purposes, it put* by one tenth to
Increase its.sphere of usefulness In tha
future. This surplus, small as It seems,
has Increased with' the yean until to-day
It owns three quarters of a million dollars
of voluble property and enjoys an annual
Income of for tythousaud dollars.
"We propose no great changes ln tho
Immediate future, but try to keep abreast
of the progress of the age. New Industries, new sciences and new Inventions ro-
i quire ntw schools of Instruction and
theso we will from time to time establish
as fast as thoy grow Into demand."

K NOBLE METROPOLITAN BUILDING.
'the Tallr.it and Most Graceful of New
' York TQuilotii Stnictures-A Newspaper Man's Uunelghborly Neighbor.
The magnificent new building of tho
Time* is so far advanced toward completion that the roof Is on and being covered
with metal. There is no otber commercial building in New York so tall as this
one, l.o., not counting t.wers and other
adornment* or dlsfi-pmments above the
roofs, .By accurate levelling measurement engineers have determined that tho
top of its wall la but two feet below that
of the New York tower of the Bast Blver
bridge. Its upper story—ike thirteenth
—will be the composing room ol the
paper*
A curious story li told as in some way
explanatory of the astonishing height to
which It his been thrnst up Into the sky.
When the. Hon. O. B. Potter wai about
putting up his present building, adjoining that ot the -Times, on tho site where
his former tinder-box wu burned, Mr.
George Jones, proprietor ot the Times,
weut to him and suggested the propriety
of constructing » party wai) ot gnat
■   strength.      Wi ' *    -*    ■
Mr. Potter Is An angtut ahd haughty
.uemonagf, and on this oocaslon was moro
no than usual. With a sort of tolerant
acorn he listened to Mr. Jonei, and re-
Slled tbat he wm going to build his house
i his own way, that the walls were going to be strong enough to suit htm, and
he proposed to be the Judge of what they
should be tn view of ths number of stories
he ihould see fit to order. Party wall!
Pooh! He WM going to build Into the
sky, and If the effect would be to dwarf
tbe Times Building, he did not see how
that concerned htm. In short, he snub-
bed-Mr. Jones, who tea somewhat peppery
person, and who thereupon resolved to
see Mr. Potter's two stories and go two
towork. aM?nths"went by-luHuTwhlJta
people wondered at the masses of earth
constantly coming out at tho Times cellars, and thoenornwusqaantttlcB of sand,
* fnottnt «hd huge stones going down there.
' Eventually It leaked but that Mr. Jones
wu establishing foundations for a building tbat would exceed In height and
beauty any other in down-town New
York, that ho would put it on tlio pi to of
his old biiildina, and that he would go
Bteatlilyi.il wlththo publication of tlio
Tlm:3t right there, all the while. Tlio
curious Interest of everybody who heard
of It wai awakened, but to no one did
the news bring such concern * to the
Hon. O. 13. Potter, for he was privileged
to know that the new Times Buildlug
would net only be more handsome than
his, but wculd overtop it by two stories.
His building would be dwarfed! Indignation at Mr. Jonc-j' presumption almost
choked him. In angry haste he sought
the rash man who proposed to do suoh
an outrageous thing.
"Seo here, Jones," he exclaimed, ira-
petuor.-.ly, "I hear that you're going to
put r.p a iic-,7 building and run It up two
stories bight*..- than mine!"
" Well, that's true," replied Mr. Jones,
with a grin of gratification at Potter's
evident dismay.
"But you can't; your walls won't stand
it."
"OhI yes they will. I've seen to tlmt.
They will be strong enough to suit me.
Tbe luterlcv walls were built with a view
to tbls couttngenoy when this building
was put up, uud the exterior oucs will bo
all right."
"But If you go two stories higher than
my building, mine will be dwarfed ln appearance."
"I do not perceive how that concerns
mc"
"You shnll not build higher than me."
"But 1 will," replied Jones, wlthn complacent smile.
"If you do, I will add two stories above
you on mine." *
"You wouldn't get any tenants ta them
and that would break your heart."
"I-l-will start a publio library lu
them."
"Wbo will you get to supply the
booksr"
That effective shot at Mr. Potter's Inc..:
of libernl.ty wnB too much tm- dim uit.i
he rushed r.way, with au ol-j-ir.-i.tKr--
bowl. And now he »*tures up al i Iiu nohlo
pllo tor :-rlng high nbove the building tu
which l.o has hlthirto taken so much
pride, and Ih ln agony of doubt whether It
will pay hlm to build higher, and if his
walls will stand his doing so.

OHINESE FUNERAL CUSTOMS.
Filial Doty In the Event of a Father's
Death—Feeding tht Dead.
When a Chinaman dies, after the candles are lit the eldest son kueels before
the corpse and with chopsticks and a
bowl of rice presents food to the mouth,
and tlso a cup of samshoo. During this
ceremony of feeding the dead, the rest of
tlie family are weeping and wailing about
tho iloor.
Money ts now placed ln the flowing
sleeves of the dead man's clothes. Then
somo one shakes the sleeves and the
money drops to the floor,. It is a case ot
" In-minor tails," a substltuto for speech,
by which nic-ns, end a certain code, the
dead man is snppcscd to make known
various wants. A miniature palanqulu
nml doll coolies for carrying It nro now
faroii.-bt lu, and san-shoo cud little cakes
set out for their refreshment on tho journey. The palanrv.tn end coolies are consumed with fire, a process that transfers
them to the spirit world to watt on the
departed.,
After this, the corpse Is clothed for his
long journey. Etlquettorerulrc-jlhr.tsix
or seven suits shall be put on oneovcr another, after the manner of tho ltvtng
Chinaman in cold weather. To enable
poor peoplo to do this, special grave-
clothes aro made of paper, lu imitation ot
Bilk; but a wealthy Chinese family spends
large sums In bundling a corpse up lu the
richest silks and satins. A largo bulky
coffin Is rendered air-tight, after the
corpse has been boxed up, by several
coats ot porcelain varnish. The hemic! I-
cal scaling Is very necessary as the body
is not taken to its final resting placo tor
months, or even years, except ln tho case
of very poor people who cannot afford to
keep up tbe cenmonies of respect, '
The sons of the dead nun usually sleep
beside the coffin night after night for
sometime, to emphasize that filial piety
to which all China bowB the knee. Hot
water is placed before the coffin overy
morning for the departed to perform his
ablutions. Food is presented regularly
nt meal times, and at night tho female
members of the family gather about tho
coffin to mr.ke known their Intention of
retiring, nnd to bid the deceased husband
and father good-night. Imitation money
is burned to pay tho expenses of a guide,
ferriage and various other things which
ho Ib supposed to require.
On the forty-ninth, sixtieth, or one hundredth day, a grand farewell banquet Is
provided, embracing all the delicacies of
the Benson. The appearance of these at
the coffin is supposed to be a gentle hint
to tho departed that ho hns now been in
the spirit land long enough to provide
for himself. As a parting gift largo
quantities of mock money are burned.
AU these ceremonies ore preliminary to
tho funeral. The funeral itself is quite
an imposing affair, with bauds of music,
sedans and companies of people In procession, all draped ln white, and weeping
and wailing. Tho Chiuese mourning
dress Is whin, and with this color the
coffin and palanquins, as well as the people, aredrosaed. The procession Is brought
up with, gangs ot men carrying fond,
candles, mock money, etc. At the grave,
candle.'i nnd Incense are burned, and tlio
food distributed among the grave-diggers
and tho children.
Among somo of tbo aboriginal tribes
of Western China the funeral customs
are vory remarkable. In striking contrast to the prolonged period of weeping
and mourning among tbe more civilized
Celestials, they yield themselves up, at
the death of a relation, to every demon-
titration of delight, such as sliiglmriuid
dancing and hand-clapping, The corpses
aro bound in bamboo mats and lii-licd tu
au upright position to stems of bamboo.
Here tin*-* remain till the ravages <>( i line,
the elements, bird* and limpets reduce the
body to a dry skeleton, when tlio bones
are washed iu hot water aud buried,

Col. Woodford'* Lecture.
Additional interest seen?*- to bo taken overy day in Mr. Woodford's lectures, last night being the most successful nnd largely attended meeting
since his arrival. The lecture lust
night, ae usual, was on temperance
and a most interesting one it was,
Mr. Woodford does not pull a long
face and talk all sorts of misery, but
places his arguments before the audi-
once in a pleasing, intelligent and
conclusive manner, which probably
accounts for the success he has attained in the field of temperance. At
the conclusion of the lecture last night
a large number of people went forward
aud signed the pledge.

Woodford to lecturo for another week

Trade With Australia.
It is now proposed to explore tho
Australian continent. The five millions of people dwelling there are
largo and liberal traders, who sond
abroad products Canada requires to
buy, and who purchase products Canada hns to sell. At present our trado
with Australia is a.mere bngatclle.
Laat yoar wo exported $270,000 worth
of goods to that country ami imported
thocofroin 8110,500 Worth of wool.
Moro than half of our export was from
British Columbia, that province Bonding to tho antipodes §00,000 worth of
salmon and §92,000 worth of planks
and boards. But though .we havo had
practically no commercial intercourse
with Australia in tho past, it does not
follow that a profitable trade cannot be
cultivated. The United States, for
instance, exported to Australia iu
1880, to tho value of 811,134,300, and
last year to the value of 89,008,000,
and imported therefrom to tho value
of $4,411,120; nnd hnving a surplus of
tho products America buys abroad,there
is no reason why Canada should not
oh tain a good share of this trado, Ono
hindrance to tho development of such
n commerce—access to the Pacific
conBt—has already been removed by
tho construction of tho Canadian Pacific Railway,—Montreal Gazette,

The Matiqut Dyke.
Mr. Fred Little, superintendent of
construction on the Matsqui Dyke,
was in the oity yesterday and roports
that the dyke is completed. This
work has occupied 4$ months in construction, and 400 meh have been constantly employed during that timt.
Tbe dyke as finished is 7 miles long,
with a 4 feet crown nnd of varying
width nt the base, according to the
nature and height of the river bank.
Tho land reclaimed by this improvement covers many thousands of acres
which will now be sold to bonafido
settlors at reasonable figures, Tho
season has been unfavorable for the
work owing to tho heavy rains, but,
all things considered, the large contract was completed as rapidly as could
havo beon expected, Mr. Humbly,
tha obief engineer, and Mr, J. H.
Gray, the government engineer, both
consider good nnd substantial work
has been done on tho dyke, nnd that
it will admirably servo tho purpose intended, Great credit is duo Mr. G.
W. Sword for the enterprise he has
shown in regard to reclaiming theso
lands, and all hia friends trust that
the results to him will be profitable.
The Matsqui settlers aro greatly pleased with the success of tho undertaking.

A rich strike was mado in tho celebrated Cameron claim at Cariboo on
December 3rd, 1802. From Mr. W.
M. Halpenny who worked in tho
claim we glean tho following interesting aocount of tbe find: At 10.30 a.
ro. on the 3rd of December, 20 yenrs
ago, I was engaged in the Onmeron
mino and hauled up with a ten gallon
keg, half full of dirt, |06 in coarse
gold. We bad dumped out $204 tho
night before and did not know of it
nntil we found the gold in tlio keg in
the morning. We ran to the; dump
and witnessed a beautiful sight. A lot
of fino and coarse gold was omhedded
in the frozen dirt and tho miners
stood gazing st it, unable to pick ont a
cent. When I saw rich prospects of
course I thought there would be no
difficulty in finding another claim for
myself. I prospected for ovor five
years after helping to find the Cameron
claim before I made one dollar. Tho
morning of the discovery was as bright
as yesterday, only two and a half feet
of snow covering the ground. Robert
Stevenson of Chilliwhaok owned n full
share in the Cameron claim. Richard
Rivers, one of tho old partners, was
hoistod out of tho shaft and we washed
seventy-five cents in gold off his gum
boots. I hope to hear of some good
quarts strikes that will compare with
the rich strike of twenty-six years ago
which hu been stamped on my memory
and takes me back in imsgiualion to
the good old days of mining in Cart-
boo.—Times,

City council.
Thore was a special meeting of the
council this afternoon at 2 o'clock.
Present, Aldermen Ovens, DeBeck,
Calbick, Elliott, Hoy, and Shiles
Aid. Elliott who occupied the chair
said the meeting wns adjourned from
Tuesday and its object was to sou if
anything could be done to arrange the
trouble between tho Mayor and the
city clerk, He aaked Mayor Dickinson to give a statement of the trouble.
Mayor Dickinson snid he was ou his
way home whon ho met Mr. Robinson
in front of Tternoy's Bullion, and
Mr. Robinson said: "They liavo
stopped our nignt work at last. Tho
Mayor answered "yes, and 1 hoard
you havo put up §250 to aid tho injunctions," Mr. Robinson answered
"no, but 1 would put up §500 if necessary." Words followed and Mr.
Robinson lost his temper and called
tho Mayor names which ho would not
repent.
Mr. Robinson—- -The mayor speaka
right. Strong language wns used by
me, but ho first called mo a cur."
Tho mayor-"Gentleman, I flatly
contradict that statement. Ou my
word of honor I did not uso that Vow
until after he hnd fint swore at me."
Mr. R'ibinson—"You called mo a
cur first and acknowledged tlmt to Mr.
Cunningham who will any the biiiiiu if
you bring hiin hero."
The mayor—"I gave you iny word
of honor gontlemou thnt I mado uo
acknowledgment of the kind." ,
Mr. Robinson—"Then you want
to smother tho evidence in my favor.'
The mayor— "I want to smother
nothing, Mr. Woods heard what was
snid but ho iB out of town nnd if ho
wore hero ho could toll you just what
happened."
Mr. Robinson—"I used bad language and you did tke same,"
The mayor—'T"did retaliate"
Mr. Robinson—"I don't cnro about
being dismissed but I object to being
turned out by any hole in tho comor
mooting of the council."
Tho mayor—"I object to any such
.expression boing used., The council
has always done its business fairly nnd
squarely."   ■  /
Mr Robinson—"I don't object to
being dismissed but I want to set myself right beforo the public. I want
to know the charges against inc. I
have no apology to mnko aa I did not
begin the trouble."
The Mayor—"It remains with tho
council,jj.fter hearing wjuj Mr. Robinson has said, to decide what is best
tod-o."
Aid. Shiles—"Cannot tho matter bo
settled out of tho council."
Aid. Ovens—"It should have boen
Bottled out of the council."
Aid.' Hoy said the clerk ' had been
antagonistic to the council for some
time und as their relations in future
were bound to be unpleasant ho would
advise Mr. Robinson tn resign.
The mayor had nothing to say
against tho manner in which Mr. Robinson had done his duty as city clerk
—the work was always woll done. It
was his conduct oh the street which
should decide the question.
Aid. Shiles snid thero wns no emn-
plamt ngainet Mr. Robinson's work,
biit'if he had dorfo" right hi winild hnve
rcaignud 2 months ago. He was opposed to certain actions of the. council,
and, being iu possession of ninny facts
to aid him, nnd which woro coming up
from time to time, he should havo resigned unless willing to follow tho
Bpirit of the council's actions,
Tho mayor was naked if ho wns willing to eit in the  council   with  Mr.
Robinson as clerk.
Tho Mayor—"No, certainly not."
Aid. Ovens—"Could notnu apology
to tho mayor bc.oftered."
Mr. Robinson—"f will' never apologia to tliu mayor .'while, there is
breath in my body. Thoro is nothing
tonpologizofor."
Aid. Hoy naked Mr, Robinson to
resign quiotly, which Mr. Robinson
p refused to do saying it would bo nn
acknowledgment of guilt.
A resolution was then passed dismissing Mr, Robinson, the only contra*'*- vote boing that of Aid, Ovons.
On motion D. Robson was appointed
city clerk pro tern. .The balance of
tho report is crowded out for wnnt of

Mayor Dickinson certainly struck
tho key-note of tho coming civic election when at tho St. Audrews dinner
ho said "Tho next counoil should be n
progressive one." No doubt tho mayor
it getting as tired of tho "old fo<*yism"
ns tho citizens arc, and feels thnt nothing short of a live, energetic council
will suit tho exigency of the hour; and
in -this opinion ho is backed by the majority of property holders and business
mon throughout the city. The present
council has done much, by the cure and
consideration given to the Westminster
and Southern Railway matter, and
they should not be to blame should
tho opposition of a couple of servants
of a rival company thwart them
through tho courts in bringing their
labors to a successful issue. But,
whilo tho present council has dono
much, considerable moro wiU be required of the next council, and it
should bo tho aim of those seeking
election to clearly define tho lines upon
which they propose to outer tho council, in their addresses to tho burgesses.
Tho old worn-out cry of ■ candidate*,
"that they will do all'thoy can for tho
Srogrcs3 of tho city" will not uulliee;
ut how far this "progress" is intended to go is what must bo required of
each candidates before tho honor of sitting in tho council is granted by tho
votoof tho citizens. Public opinion
is planking n platform for tho candi-'
i dates to well consider beforo they issue
their addresses. They must be prepared to givo thoir unqualified and undivided support and approval to what
has been done, nnd what may need to
bo done, to push tho Westminster and
Southorn Railway to completion and
connection with through systems on
the othor sido of tho boundary. They
must bo ready to aid in reforming our
system of fire protection to this extent:
viz., tho building of nn electric firo
alarm connecting with tho largest boll
in the city; tho building of a firo station upon the top of tho hill, and tho
payment of the firemen to somo extent
for services performed and clothes
destroyed. nt Bros. A city hall nnd
market must nlso have thoir support;
for, whilo a storekeeper has to pay
heavy rent* aud taxes, a peddlor or
rancher c*j,n sell his produco upon (he
wharf and deliver it nnder tno very
nose of tho storekeeper free. The
market dues and the rent of stalls
would pay tho intorest upon tho money
raised for the erection of a building;
tiro transient vendor would bo compelled to mako sales of hia produco
upon tho market, and tho legitimate
Btorckcoper havo his, interests protected. The streets must also botablotcd,
and tho stores and dwelling- numbered, und when dono tho pys.lmnstet'-
gcneral should bo petitioned for a free
fioatal delivery) but until they are tab*
otod and numbered wo cannot aik tho
government for the concession, and
residents are put to ihe inconvenience
of coming down to the postofiSce in all
woathcrs, and iho visitor or new settler to the atinoynnoo of enquiring
from door to door for a resident who
perhaps has lived hero for twenty
yearH. Then again, tho North Arm pf
tho Fraser rirer trade should naturally
come iio this city, but when wu seo
Vancouver reaching out for thia trade,
nnd building, or getting a roid built
fcr them, no stone should be left unturned to otter fncilitiei for tho BCttliT
to bring his product) to thii market
and carry away liis supplies from this
city. Tho paltry subsidy granted tho
other dny should bo augmented nnd a
firit-ctast) daily service put nn bctwouu
the North Arm und this city. Now, a
dofinito pledgo muat bo givon that
theso reforms will hnvo their serioiiB
attention and support by thu nspiranta
for civic honors, or they will fuel the
effects of an eastern winter at the close
of the polls.
