which fled in wild disorder nnd Ihe obstruction was removed
11 o'clock.—The strikers and pulice

gAng of strikers had upset several
trucks nnd milk wagons, completely
blockading the Sixth Avenue tracks
between Bedford and Bleecker sts.
Hostilities began when the noxt car
approached tho vicinity, on the way
down town. An Imnionao crowd as*
sembled and the police made a drive'
to scatter it and freely used their dubs.
Tho rioters held their ground ahd Officer Sbannahan was knocked down.

rclerves, hastened to the scene arid
wero received with a shower of stones
from house to houso, that battered in
their helmets. Policeman Burns,
whose club waa wronched from him by
the mob, drow his pistol and fired into
the crowd. The police at this moment
charged the crowd and clubbing right
and left soon cleared the street. The
m i-n with battered and breeding heads
ran in every direction. One man is
reported shot. Several strikers wero
arraigned ab the polico court this
morning. Some were sentenced to
pay tines and some sont to the Island>
for short terms: others were held for
trial on criminal chsrgei.
12 o'olook.—Several'polico alarms
have already been given this morning
and skirmishes have taken place .in different quarters, the police being victorious always. At police headquarters
no uneasiness is felt and it is even as*
sertod the backbone of the strike hu
already been broken. About five hundred strikers assembled at 45th st, und
Broadway and attempted to tear the
track up to stop cars running. Tbe
po.ice oharged and drove them back
after tbe strikers had upset four large
trucks across the tracks. Stores in the
vicinity have put up their shutters and
locked the doors.

GOLDEN WEDDING.
Yesterday Mr. and Mrs. W. D.
Ferris celebrated their golden wedding, the fiftieth anniversary of their
marriage, From 2 to 6 p. m. they
held a reception whioh wu attended
by a large number of friends and acquaintances, who were delighted to be
able to avail themselves of congratulating this highly respected couple.
Each visitor wu presented witha handsome souvenir card.
Mr. Ferris was born* in the oity of
Bristol, England, on the Slat day of
May, 1816, and spent 22 years of his
life as a member in the polico service.
He served eight years of tho Bristol
police force and eleven years in the
Wilts constabulary, whero he received
promotion. He resigned, and emigrated to Toronto, Canada, where he
received an appointment as superin*
tendantofa division of police. In
April, 1802, he resigned bis position
thero, (having taken the B. C. gold
fever), and came to New Westminster,
by wnich time he hsd pretty well got
over the contagion, and settled down
to work. About seventeen yeara ago
ho was appointed a justice of the peace
for Britiih Columbia and in 1886 received tbe appointment of coroner for
the city snd district of New Westminster. He was married on the
29th of January, 1839, at St. Pauls'
Church, Portland square, Bristol. The
result of the wedding wu nine children, five of whom died in infancy.
The eldest son now living is forty
years of age, Mr. Ferris has filled
many important offices and has always
been held in respect and esteem. He
served several years in tho city council, representing St. Andrew's ward,
"79 was elected mayor, which
illed to the satisfaction of
all.
Mrs. Ferrii was born on tho 6th of
J a n nary, 1813, at Yate, in the county
of Glouceitershire.and has been a good
and faithful wife and a careful and affectionate mother,' thoroughly attentive to husband, children and home
duties, for fifty years, and hu, as already stated, boen the mother of nine
children and is now grandmother of a
little less than a score.
At the request of the congregation
of St. Paul's R. E. ohurch, of which
Mr. and Mrs; W. D. Ferris have been
prominent and useful members, they
held another reception in the church
in the evening. The church was
crowded when, about 8 o'clock, Mr.
and Mrs. W, D, Ferris onterod that
edifice, while Miss Mathers played on
tho organ a wedding march. The
pastor gave out the 166th hymn, beginning-'Kindred in Christ for his
desr uke, a hearty welcome here receive," after which ho offered an appropriate prayer.
The Rev. Mr. Haddon then aaid he
had an addreis to read, when tho
couple arose, -and he road u fol*
lows:—
ifr. and Wii W.D.Pkrris:
Dear Friends,-On this the fiftieth
anniversary of your marriage—your golden wedding day, the congregation of this
church offer yon their sincere and hearty
congratulations.
It falls to the lot of very few of thoso
are joined in matrimony to live together
in that honorable estate during the apace
of half a century, and we feel, as no
doubt you feel yourselves, that you have
been especially favored by Providence,
having both pissed the allotted span of
human life.
You were among the flrst of the Uttle
band who organized this church and
your assistance and zeal In support of its
cause are well knowu and appreciated
by the congregation, especially by those
who can look back to the time when
they were without a pastor, when Mr,
Ferns led their devotions with such satisfaction to all; when through good and
evil report yoa were stndmit to your
charge and mainly instrumental In keeping together the little flock.
We have now much pleasure in presenting you with thia gold-headed cane
and this gold bracelet, which are suitably inscribed for this occasion, and wo
wish you to accept them, not for their
intrinsic value, hut u tokens of our love
nnd respect, and we trust and pruy that
Ood may still further lengthen your
lives for many years.
Signed on behalf of the congregation,
Thomas Haddon,
Pastor.
W. A.,Duncan, Wm, Johnston, W, J.
Mathkrs, Huoh Burr, Charlks
Warwick, J, Batchklor.
After reading the above, Mr. Had*
don approached and said: "I have
much pleasure In presenting thia ad*
dress to you, Mr, Ferrii, accept it as a
tike it of the wtoem with which you
are held by this congregation, and this
gold-headed cane which vou will find
not only an i-rnninont out a useful
article that may be of service to you in
your declining yean. Mn. Ferris:
receive this gold bracelet, and whenever you look upon it think of the affection and love of the St. Paul's
ohuch oongrtgation, WestO-inster, towardi you, and I trust you will long
live to wear it
Mr. Ferris then with groat feeling
gave quite a lengthened reply. He said:
••Idoiodetd appreciate these gifta
to* day; this is the happioit day of my
life and I and my wife heartily thank
this congregation for its kindly remembrance of us," and then, referring to
a portion of the addreu, uid: "Wo
were enabled, since the commencement of thii organisation to continue
the services of the church, though for
a while our difficulties were greet. We
had kept togothor; God had prospored
us and will prosper ui, and when I
die I wish my body to be brought to
this church and then carried from hero
to mother earth."
After he concluded Mr. Haddon
said: "I cannot tell how pleased I am
to have the pleasure of commemorating this event. A year ago when I
was informed thst Mr. and Mra. Ferris
had lived together forty-nine years, I
prayed that Ood would spare them at
least another year so that we might aee
this day, and although Mrs. Ferris
during the year has been two or three
times near death's door, yet the Lord
haa kindly preserved her and both aro
here to-night. 1 have sometimes
reud of persons celebrating thoir golden
wedding, this, however, is the first I
have had tho privilege of attonding
and no doubt this iB the first the majority here have attended. I may
say not ono couple out of every ten
thousand are permitted to celebrate
their golden wedding. A great many
people live to be sevonty and eighty
years of age, but very seldom man nnd
wife are permitted to live fifty years
together. I may also say I never
knew n subscription made so euy as
the Jtuie (or the presentation to-night,
whioh shows the popularity of the ob-
J'ect. Everyone hero knows that Mr.
i'erriu is one of the best and iiiuBt
cheerful workers of the church. He
will .dp anything that is to be done
with a willing heart" After making a
few humorous remarks ho concluded
thus: "My prayer ia that you, Mr.
Ferris, may lung be spared to ss-ist id
the services of the church, and thut
you may for years to come have the
companionship of your dear wife, and
that when you both shall die you may
be raised to heaven, where 1 trust all
of us shall meet when our labors on
earth are ended,"
After this nearly all of the congregation came forward and congratulated
Mr. .and Mrs. Ferris on tho auspicious
event. Mis. Chappell sang, whilo
Mils Hsddon presided nt the organ:
"Don't forget tlie Old Folks;
Life will soon be o'er;
Guide them till thelrwoary foet
; Tread the golden shore," Ae.
The 160th hymn wu then sung:
"Blest bo the lie that binds
Our hearts fn Jesus* love;'
The fellowship of Christian mind*.
, „ Is like to that above," "
The putor then pronounced the

CROWN PRINCE RUDOLPH DEAD.
London, Jan. 30.—Prince Rudolph,
orown prince of Austria, died suddenly
to-day at Meirling, in Baden, from a
stroke of apoplexy.
Later.—It is now believed Rudolph
died of heart disease. He was found
by his valet dead in bed this morning.

Paris, .Tan. 30.—Gen. Boulanger,
speaking of the comments of the foreign pre is on his election, uys it ia

LAROUCHEBE'h CABLE,
London, Jan. 30.—The prince of
Wales is going to Berlin in the course
of the spring lo pay a formal visit to
the emperor in his military capacity as
colonel in chief of the Blucher Hussars, i Etiquette requires this visit
should be paid boforo the emperor
comes to England. William will come
on a visit to the queen u booh as the
year of mourning fur his father is over.
It is probable that the emperor will be
her majesty's guest at Windsor early
in July for a few days and while in
London he will reside at Buckingham
Palace. But his stay in this country
will not exceed ten days altogether.
the royal pbincess.
There has been correspondence between the Prince of Wales and the
Marquis of Salisbury about money
matters since the visit of his royal
highness to the queen at Windsor last
month. I understand that Lord Salisbury has expressed himself as being
ready to propose a grant cf £15,000 a
year for Prince Albert Victor when-
over he desires to marry. The allowance for Prince George and for the
young Princesses uf Wales will be proposed at the proper time, which presumably means whon they marry or
when their father dies or when the
queen dies, whichever event is the fint
to happen.
,. ftS^N's ,DRAWI!W BOOM.
The queen's drawing-room has been
officially announced for the 20th of
February. Her majesty has decided
not to hold the second herself as it
will not take place till the middle of
March, wheii the Princess of Wales
will officiate in her stead; There nre
alio to be two drawing-rooms during
tho third week of May, both of which,
all being well, will be- held by tho
queen.
CHAMBERLAIN and WOLSELEY.
The success of Gon. Boulanger in
Franco is turnins the heads of Mr.
Chamberlain and his ally Gen. Lord
Wolsely. They cannot quito agreo
who of the two is to be dictator, so
they offer themselves u a duumvirate
to rule over ub. Col, North and Mr.
Chamberlain are angling for recognition by the gentlemen of England, but
I think the colonel is the moro honest
ol tlie two. He at leut does not try
to bribe himself into social and political recognition with the money of the
taxpayers.

The other (lay we wero forced to
object to the  World's  manner   of
forming a new registration district,
having its centre at Vancouver.  As
our readers know, we did not object
to such a district boing created, but
simply to the  World's suggestion—
which could only result in inconvenience and hardship  if  carried
out—that   the    municipality    of
Dolta should be included in the proposed district,when everyone knows
that this city is many miles nearer
to that section than is Vancouver.
The proposed chauye would, in fact,
compel  those   seeking  a   registry
office from Delta to travel right past
this city and on to Vancouver, thus
losing  a  day  at least, and, more
probably, two days.    Even the inu
nioipality of Kiehmond, which the
World appropriates as a matter of
course, is, as to its greater   part,
more conveniently situated with a
view to this eity remaining its registry centre, than for that centre to
be changed to   Vancouver.   If we
ake the near future into account,
too, when Westminster will be evon
more closely connected   with   tho
North Arm, by a road on the mainland, and a bridge at the head of
Lulu Island  connecting this  city
directly with a road right through
the heart of the Richmond municipality, Vancouver loses still further
its claim to be a convenient centre
for 'even  the   Richmond   municipality.   However, we don't want to
be hoggish and might concede Richmond for registration district purposes, on account of Vancouver's utter destitution of nu agricultural environment  otherwise.       But   the
World is not content by any means
with the prospect of a registration
centre at Vancouver.   Jt wants to
scoop   tho proposed  county court
judge  for tliis   district.   On   this
subject   the   World   says:   "It  is
known that at least three additional
county court judges ore shortly to
be appointed.   There are to be one
each for the districts of New Westminster, Yale and Nanaimo.   There
is no wish on the part of tho World
to disturb or interfere with the law
courts as they are now established in
New Westminster, but as a new
order of things is to be created we |
seo no good reason why the office
of the county court judge for this
distriot   should   not be located in
Vancouver.    It is  admitted that
the major portion of tho business to
be brought before that functionary
will be from this city, which is so
rapidly coming to the front as the
leading commercial city of the province,"     It must be remembered
that the county court judge will be
appointed for Westminster distriot,
not merely for the cities of Westminster or Vancouver.    If the latter were the cose, we might not
think it worth while to dispute the
Worlds statement that Vancouver
may excel this eity somewhat in
the quantity of litigation; but the
district must be taken into account.
It must be remembered, in tho first
plaoe, that the district is extensive
both in area, population and interests, that the two latter are increasing rapidly, and that the district as
a whole has a pretty good record
already of county court business to
tho square mile; in the seoond place,
that Westminster is tho truo centre
of the largo and important district
in question, whether viewed from a
registration, litigation, or any other
standpoint; and that, therefore, it
would be neither fair nor just to
subordinate, or, rather, sacrifice, the
interests of the whole distriot and
of this city as well to those of Vancouver, whatever inflated an estimate may bo formed of that city's
prospective commercial importance
by thoso interested in magnifying
the same. Vancouver has got accustomed to receiving favors from the
"powers that be"—as the Newt put
it rather aptly, a few months ago,
"tha big battalions" are on ita side
—and wo may be sure that both the
bouse of commons and the provincial legislature will be closely besieged for more "tips* during the
sessions immediately at hand.   This
is all right, of course; but, while
Westminster haa no reason to be
jealous of the "salt water terminus,"
it behooves her citizons also to look
out for No. 1, and see that tbe interests of the royal city are neither
sacrificed nor alii"
The United States is having its
gorni trod on by foreign powers, big
and little, these times.    Id its
rather peevi.h and undecided pro-
teat*- against these liberties ito prestige lit not reoeivi-g any added
lustre.., Little Hayti, te be sure,
was finally bluffed  with a great
flourish 'iii trumpets, but in this
vexed Samoan aflair, the great ro*
publio, although having suffered a
real, or imaginary affront to ita flag
from tlie swaggering and aggressive
Germans, cannot quite make up its
mind to bring the offender up sharp
and demand an unqualified apology
and redress.   The consequent** is a
vacillating and uncertain course, not
at all flattering to the national pride
of patriotic and "jingoe" A-wrioani, l
and not muoh in keeping with
American bluster on other and safer
occasions The Samoan Islands,
called also the Navigators' Islands,
are four in number, are situated in
the South Pacific, and for about ten
years have been under the joint protectorate of England and the
United Sates and Germany. Those
islands are considered a vantage
point in the south seas, henoe the
determination by eacb of the three
powers named that neither should
have exolusive control. For three
or four years the people of the
Samoan Islands have been plunged
in trouble, and the foreign consuls
have beon quarrelling as a result of
the covetousness and aggressiveness
of the Germans. Germany's commercial interests in the islands are
said to be greatest, those of the
United States seecond and those of
Great Britain third. Germany has
been trying to secure a monopoly of
the wholo trade by dominating the
govornment of the islands, which is
that of an independent kingdom.
Tho following from an eastern exchange is a fair review, embraoing
tho principal details of the present
Samoan trouble and the causes leading up to it: "Four years ago tho
Germans persuaded King Malietoa.
to sign a treaty by which the government of his kingdom would be
virtually in the hands of the Germans, as it provided for a cabinet
with two German traders, two
natives, and tho German consul as
the fifth member. The English and
Americans objected to this treaty,
and King Malietoa withdrew from
it, and becoming afraid of German
aggressiveness, applied to England
to annex the kingdom, and take his
people under her protection. The
British government refused to do so,
but over since the anger of the Germans against him, and their jealousy of the English and Americans
know no bounds. They fostered
the pretensions to the throne of a
native named Tamasese, who is supported only by a small portion of
the Samoans, supplied him with [
arms and ammunition, and aided
him in many ways. He made no
progress against Malietoa, however,
and the Germans, under pretext of
protecting German interests, hoisted
the German flag over a piece of land
at Apia, and then ordered Malietoa
to haul down the Samoan flag whioh
was over the government buildings.
The king refused to do so, and a
German man-of-war in port landed
an armed force, which toro down
the Hag. King Malietoa had a
treaty with tho United States, by
virtue of which the American gov*
ernment was bound to defend tho
Samoan kingdom against the aggression of foreigners, and he applied to the American consul for
protection. The American consul,
in conformity with the treaty, accompanied by an armed force from
the American man-of-war, re-hoisted
the Samoan flag over the government buildings, placing the
American flag oyer all. The German residents were. more, enraged
than ever, but the German war vessels sailed out of port the same day.
Just sb they steamed out of sight a
second American man-of-war steamed into tlie harbor with colors flying,
nnd the people of Samoa thought, of
course, that German aggressiveness
had suddenly terminated before a
show of power on the part of the
United States. The American consul notified his government of his
action, and the government, under
stress of German representations,
rebuked him for his action, replaced
him with another consul, and the
German war vessels returned. The
Germans thereafter openly acted
against King Malietoa, whom they
first seized and imprisoned in spite
of the protests of the other consuls,
and then carried off into exile in
one of their warships. They then
placed Tamasese on the throne. The
natives of the Samoan islands chose
as their king a relative of the late
King Malietoa, named Mataafa, and
they have defeated Tamasese over
and over again, and the latter has
been compelled to take shelter
under the guns of the German fleot.
Recently the Germans landed a
party for the purpose of attacking
King Mataafa's forces, but tlie latter defeated them badly. Stories of
extraordinary outrages on Americans and on their flag have just
reached the United States, which, if
they are well-founded, will give that
country a pretty direct challenge to
war. All along there have been
sharp diplomatic passages at arms
between the American and German
governments on the nlluir, but it is
not likely that the quarrel will ever
becomo more than a diplomatic
one." This conclusion, as our readers know, is amply justified, The
American foreign policy In this matter would appear to be "peace at
any price." And no doubt, Uncle
Sam is right, if he is not very sensitive on microscopical points of
"honor."

AMONG THE GLACIEBS.
Grand aad Remarkable Traoes of
Nature',, Powerful Enginery.
At tho American Institute of Instruction
at Newport. R. I, a lecture was given by
Hon. James W. Patterson, Btato Superintendent of Publio Instruction of New Hampshire, upon "A Trip Among the Glade.-."
Mr. Patterson said:
If wo go forth into our fields and pastures,
he began, wo see rooks and bowlders scattered promiscuously aud In countless num*
bers, which have been transported from
tholr original beds by some giant force
which dominated tho world in a primitive
age, but unknown since tho historic period.
If ln our northern latitudes wo lay bare the
flanks of tho mountains we find tbe underlying lodges all ground and polished by
some powerful enginery of nature, whioh
haa passed down their naked sides, plow*
ing at intorvals parallel furrows in their
tough and unyielding surface. Everywhere
over our northern hemisphere the Titanic
workers of tbo olden time have dumped
their weighty burdens of drift above tbo
stratified deposits of a yet earlier period,
and tho heterogenous masses of mingled
dirt, gravel and bowlders found among our
mountains and stretching east and west
along our temperate zone all point to a time
when glaciers, like those of Greenland,
moved over our continent and sent their
mighty bergs into the sea. But whence
came this power and whither has it gone?
is the question which naturally ocmes to
every Up. There are abundant reasons to
believe that this glacial force Is periodic,
liko ao many other of the operations of nature. .
Hevoral thSSHes have been propounded at
different times to account for the periodicity
of glacial action. That of Croll, which accounts for the varying mean temperature c"
tbe earth by tho revolutions of tho seasons
around tho earth's orbit and tho changing
eccentricity of the orbit itself, seems to bo
tho most rational. Winter at aphelion must
bo lonc-or and colder than winter at perihelion, and the variation must increase with
tho increase of the eccentricity of the orbit,
and with the Increase of the inclination of
the axis of the earth to the plane of its
orbit.
b.r modern glaciers are produced like the
nut■ ,i nt, by a low temperature acting upon
the i .loisturo of tho atmosphere.
T. a day after roach fug the valley threo of
us Americans determined to make tho as*
con' of Mont Blanc. Haylrig secured five
Sw.i a guides wo wero acooutorod, according to directions, with heavy shoes having
hhu"? Bplkes in tho soles and heels, and
wit. buskins around our lower limbs.
Kiul. man was armed with a long alpcn-
Bto. 1: having a strong stool spike in one end.
Tht. guides took with them an alpea axe and
a coil of strong rope, with leathern belts attached at Intervals of abouteight feet apart.
Thus prepared we started on our trip up the
glacier.
For a time "Ihe ascent was easy and wo
had little, trouble.    But after advancing
< somo distance we began to encounter long
crooks or .fissures in tbe Ice, which wo woro
obliged to leap.
As wo advanced the onenlngsor crevasses
becomo wider and mora hazardous to pass.
At length we came to ono fivo feot wido and
descending to an unknown depth. Our
loader stopped and buckled ono ot tbo
heavy belts about his waist and passed the
next to me. I fastened this about myself and
handed the third to tho second guide, and
ha to the next till we wore all harnessed or
roped together. Thus prepared tho foremost guide placed himself upon tho edgo of
the crevasse, and giving u spring went over.
Wo followed him tn order till all were
oyer.  Ono of our number, a short, heavy
■> man, foiled of a secure landing on the upper
side, but the rope was strong and we hauled
him up hand over hand. We continued to
, repeat this operation till atlongth wo struck
a crevasse somo twenty feet wide Here
wo found a ladder with heavy spikes ln the
lower ond, which one of tho guides drove
i Info the tee below the surface and thon
dropping it onto tho other side let himself
I down tho ladder and ascended to the Ice
i above. We all followed suit and woro safely
landed on the other aide,. Bo we continued
■> to advance till wo reached the Grand Muleta
about four o'clock in tho afternoon. Here,
I moro than ten thousand foot above the seo,
. wo spent the night) intending to oompleto
tho ascent the following morning.   But a
1 thunder-storm which followed us up the
mount-tin covered the glacier with a veneer*
ing of glare toe which rendered farther ad*
1 vence extremely dangerous, so that the
k guides refused to lead us np to tho summit.
1 "Reluctantly we turned buck end crept cautiously down the mountain of Assured Ice.
Atone point we reached a crevasse of five
feet with a narrow tongue of ice beyond and
a second opening beyond that. This was a
perilous spot, nnd we watched our loador
. with Intense anxiety. Moving up to the
cdpo cautiously ho out a place for his foot
with his alpen axe and then.putting himself
in a position, gavo a ipring, and falling flat
. upon tho ice arrested bis progress and
awaited our coming one by one in the same
mannor. On reaching our hotel we found
tbe norvous strain had been a severe one,
but were roady the next morning for the
McrdeUlaoe. We went on foot and with*
out guldos to the Montouvert, and thenoe
dem ended to the glacier, which wo crossed
ond ..wr-ossMand studied with great core.

tor.iy for soma of tbelr phenomena. On
. tbo south side of tho Alps We find the
'snow line about eight thousand feet above
tho sea. All moisture above the lino, it la
evident, must be condensed and reach the
mountain surface as crystallzed or gronu*
loii'd snow or as ball. When the steep
slil''_ of tbeso lofty heights becomo over
loaded with snow, it pushes down of its own
wci-jht, and sometimes descends three

But object* near tho tester*-* sees to ad*
vanco more rapidly than those near. Its
sides, which are retarded by motion with
Its tanks. Btooco, we infer thut the inovo-
mcut Undthi mass, but molooulor.
Vdrioia theories hoyo boen started to account for this motkm. It has been said
that tho weight of tbe mow above and bo*
hind tbo glacier pushed it down tho inclined piano on wbloh it rests. Undoubtedly * for* Cf u* Und ma* et-i* Ml if
that wero alt, MntttladtaMO n a ootid

Again, it has been contended that rains
aud moiling snows percolating through the
subfjU'iire uf the glacier, and then froozin-*,
pushed it forward hy the foroe of thoir expansion. But tho glacier moves in winter
when ice does not *ae_t and in summer
when it does not freeze, j'
i Another his affirmed that ice, .though
brittle and seemingly unyielding, is plastic
ami gelatinous, and moves under pressure
liko asphaltum.
Tyndall and Huxley rest a later theory
upon an extended series of experiments aud
observations. Ice crushed into a granulated otato if submitted to great pressure
will readily take any desired form and return to a solid and transparent condition.
Bo the glucior,. pressed Vy-fts own incalculable -weight against oh unyielding surface,
Is ground up and made toi assume tho structure of its channel, and to movo forward
Liko a vicious substance, and tho very force
which grinds it up restores it again to its
transparent state.
Wo found tho consistency of tho Mer do
Glace changed continually from tho Berac3
to the Chapeau. The snow at the sourca
gradually took on a granulated farm, which
tl-oFi-ouoh call neve, and as it advanced
downward to where it alternately melted
and froze it was transformed into bluo
transparent ice.
Whouuvor the glader leaps suddenly
downward in its track, it is broken up by its
own weight. The -lateral crevices uro
caused by the strain put upon tho ice by the
unequal movement of the sides and tbo
center of tho glacier, and as the crocks open
at right angles to the line of greatest tension thoy generally curve upward, the convexity boing up the stream. During tbo boat
of tho summer it is a common thing to seo
one or more brooks coursing along, tho sur-
focoofthogiadoranddropp)(pglntofii8UreB,
wl|lch thoy molt into the form of deep wells.
Thla water passes down to tbe bottom of tbo
glacier, and, mingling with the rock which
has beon ground up by the friction between
the loo and its bed, issues at the lowor end
ma turbid stream, which being drunk by
tbe people produces the strong tendency to
the goiter sb common In some of the cantons.
Moraines are produced by the foiling of
dirt and stones from the cliffs upon tho
sides of the glacier. , These are called lateral
moraines, but where two glaciers unite to
form a third, as in the cose of tbe Mor de
Glace, two lateral moraines oombine and
form a largo medial moraine This material
is all bomo on together aa the glacier advances, and is dropped off at the lower end
forming tho terminal moraine. Theso moraines scattered over new England are the
evidences of former glacial action in this
part of tlio country, '
Sometimes a. large, flat bowlder foiling
upon tbo ice prevents it melting beneath,
and we have the phenomenon of an lee
pillar.	
LIFE IN   WASHINOTON.
Experience of a Han Who Game to Secure
a Government Position.
Ho sot on a Lafayette square' bench, says
tho Washington Critic, a wooden tooth-pick
held meditatively between his teeth; tho
picture of a dub-man who had dined wdl.
. Shuffling down one of tho graveled paths
was a man—a tramp. He passed tbe clubman, eyeing him closely, and, halting In tho
gloom of a near-by tree, looked back to
whore tbe club-man sat, and then retraced
his steps.
" Yeur pardon, sir,-' the tramp sold, in a
husky voice, "will you give me a little advice,"
"Well, what is it!" the club-man asked,
a shade of annoyance showing in his good-
natured features, for, like most heavy
Miners, ho disliked any thing that savored
of business after dinner. Bosidos, ho
thought the man but a beggar, and disliked
his not approaching the matter dlraelly.
" I'll tako but a minute of your time, Btr,
if you'll listen to mo. I come to Washington two months ago to get a government
position. As you see, I failed. For thu last
eight days up to last night I have been
drunk. I have been a drinker all my life,
but I nover drank so muoh nor so steadily
before, I woke up tbls morning with tho
sun shining hi my faco through the trees
of o pork. My clothes wore pawned and
replaced with these rags, jq*, wfttch, money,
every thiqg gone for drink.
"Did you ever havo mania-o-potu! No; I
con see that you bovon't Well, I have.
Two hours ago I felt it coming oh me. You
can see,'' holding up a tremulous band, ''how
unstrung my nerves are.'' I can almost soo
the devils now as they tighten their Angers
on my throat. And the thirst—thirst that
nothing but alcohol will quonch. You can
not imagine what it Ib to feclyoursolf petrified, powcrleB8,doad to every tiling but pain,
whilo lizards, ants* toads, worms, suukos,
every thing slimy, are twisting, wriggling,
Bquirming over you, gumming your oyos
together, filling your ears with horrible
sounds, while every joint in your body is
racked and twisted until! it seems
ready to come apart. Tour brain on firo,
your throat parched and swollen, and tho
not, fetid breath ot devils in your faco na
tbey taunt you with groat flagons, of liquor,
held just out of your reach. God, sift Tbls
and a thousand times thb I have felt, and
feel coming oyer mo again.
"I asked you for advice.' Well, l'vo got a
quarter In my pocket I can get a bed for a
quarter, or I can got a pint. of whisky that
will keep me out of the rtach of those devils
to-night, until I osn' got to |fe-,p, Butvrticre
would I sleep) If Igetebei*I..c»n*t alee*:
unless I have something to drink. You set
why I asked your advice."
When the tramp began bis story tho clubman wore a look of wearied indlfferenco
Bnt tho tramp talked quickly and excitedly,
with jerky, expressive gestures, his hollow
eyes fixed on tho club-man's every look and
every motion, lending strength to what he
said, until tho dub-man seemed .fascinated.
As tho tramp finished ho got upfront tbo
bench and shook himself like a man ridding
bis mind of an unpleasant day dream.
"Ugh, man, yoa ought to bean actor.
Here's fifty cents. No, hen's a dollar, and,
for God's sake don't talk to mo any more
about your ddtrlum tremens. Ughl"
And tho tramp shuffled off through the,
deepening gloom, and, as he passed into the.
flare of tbe eleotrio lights in front ot the
Treasury, the dollar and Ihe quarter
jingled merrily in hts pooket*
He was an ex-actor.

About tho middle of April last we observed a young lamb entangled among
briars. It had seemingly struggled'for
liberty until it was quite exhausted, Its
mother was present, endeavoring with
.her head and foet to disentangle it. After;
having attempted in vain for a long timo to
effect this purpose, she left It and ran away,
baaing with all her might WO fancied
there was something peculiarly doleful lu
her voice. Thus she proceeded bonis three
fields, and through four strong bodges,
until sho como to a flock of sheep. From
not having been able to follow her wo could
not watoh her motions when with them.
However.she loft thom in about fivo minutes,
accompanied by o rom that had two powerful ftorni. They returned speedily towimi.-i
the poor lamb, and as bom as they nuchbd

The following sketches of the gentlemen who will ndorn the council board
during the present year wero intended
to appear with tho report of the first
meeting of the new council, but
owing to tho great pressure ou our
space yesterday, it was necessary to
bold them over till to-day.
JOHN HENDRY KM...,
Mayor of New Westminster, comes of
good old Scottish stock and waa born
at Belle Dune, Gloucester County,
New Brunswick, in 1844. Aftor leaving school Mr. Hendry followed lumbering until he became a thorough
master of the business in nit its
branches. In 1872 Mr. Hendry left
homo nnd aftor visiting the most attractive centres iu the western states
finally oime to the Pacifio Coast and
spent 18 months in tho employ of two
of tho largest saw mills on Puget
Sound. From tho Sound ho went to
Moodyvillo and assisted to build the
Moodyville saw mills, with which
establishment he was connected for
two years. Having an idea that Manitoba would somo day be a great country Mr. Hendry decided to go there
and enter into tho manufacture of
lumber, but on reaching thut provinco
ho found lumbor very scarce nnd the
outlook not particularly bright, so he
mado his way back to tho Pacific
Coast. San Francisco did not hold
out very bright inducements and Mr.
Hendry returned to British Columbia,
settling in Nanaimo, where he, in
company with Mr. D. McNnir, started
a small saw mill. The Diamond City
was then booming and consequently
tho now firm prospered. The continually brightening prospects of New
Westminster attracted Mr. Hendry's
attention and he finally determined to
remove his mill lo this city, which
was done in the full of 1877. Since
that date Mr. Hendry's success is too
well known to require recapitulation.
Suffice it to say that from n small mill
in 1887 the business has been stoadily
extended aud enlarged until to-day it
leads the lumber industry of British
Columbia. This success is almost entirely due to Mr. Hendry's excellent
business abilities and to the reputation
for honesty and integrity hu has so
rightfully won. Siuce its incorporation
Mr. Hendry has been manager and
president of the Royal Oity Planing
Mills Co. Mr. Hendry has held many
oflices of trust and importance. He
was a member of the city counoil in
1870 and 1880 ; was the first president of the Westminster Woolen
Mills Co. ; a director in tho Gas Company, and president of the Board of
Trade, and has been a member of the
Board of Trade council since its establishment. Mr. Hendry has now
been awarded the highest civic office
in tho gift of the people—mayor of
New Westminster—another proof of
the estimation in which he is so generally held. The Royal Cityfo.ves much
of ita prosperity to Mr. Hendry. Tohim
is largely duo the credit of re-opening
the Fraser river to deep sen vessels,
which was only attained after a succession of disappointments under
which most mon would have lost heart
nnd given up in despair. But not so
with Mr. Hendry, ho had determined
to make the Royal City an ocean port
and never relaxed his efforts till the
arrival of the ship Cnmana crowned
his enterprise. He hns always supported the Southern Railway, of which
he was a director until a fow days ago,
nnd was one of the most prominent in
bringing the negotiations to a successful issue. With Mr. Hendry as mayor
the interests of the Royal City will not
suffer, but, un the contrary, hia election will give an impetus to every
entcrpriae of worth.
ALERMAN DAVID 8. CURTIH
is a native of County Kent, Ontario,
where he received his education at tbe
public schools. Atthe age of 18 he

taken a deep interest in all matters of
publio importance and has been conspicuous in every movement tending to
the welfare of the city. He was first

was returned by acclamation at the two
following elections. He was a member of the counoil of 1887 and chairman of the finance committee. He is
a member of the council of the board
of trado and was secretary of the hoard
for two years. Mr. Curtis is a drug*
gist and does a largo and profitable

in dealing with every question. Like
all Irishmen he is an enthusiast in
military matters nnd Is a great favorite
with all ranks.

and fancy stock raising and hss the
honor of owning the finest herd of Jerseys in the province. He takes a great
interest in all things pertaining to the

but prove valuable to the city.

and uw service in the Baltic during
tbe progress of the Crimean war. In
1858 he came to British Columbia and

the esteem of his fellow citizens. He
is an old hand in civic affairs, having

ALDBBMAN DONALD MCHIADKN

County, Ontario, where he first saw
tho light of day in 1847. Leaving
home at the time of the British Columbia gold fever in 1865 he camo to

McPhaden returned to Victoria and
eventually to Westminster, where he

that city out of existence they sustained a severe lou, which, however, did
not doter tbe enterprising firm from
immediately re-establishing the busi-
neu. Capt. Scoullar was a member of
