SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Japan has an electrical society
with a membership of 800.
An epidemic of yellow fever in
Versailles is supposed to have arisen
from germs imported from Sonth
America in the plumage of parrots.
The police of Berlin  are   taking
measures to prevent the spread  of
corebro-spinal meningitis, which has
become quite common there, and is
now understood to be an infectious
disease.
Mr. 0, V. Boys has discovered
that quartz has remarkable insulating qualities.   The deflection of a
small pair of electrified gold leaves
fell only one-fourth after suspension
five hours from a quartz roof in a
moist atmosphere, .though   a  clean'
glass rod under the same conditions
would discharge the leaves in a few
seconds.
Asbestos   Paphb.—A   German
patent  has been  granted  to  M.
Ladewigg for a much needed article
—a lire-und water-proof paper.   It
is made' by  nixing 25 parts  of
asbestos with 25 to 30 parts of
aluminum sulphate, moistening with
ziuc chloride, nnd, after washing,
treating the pulp with a solution of
one part of resin soap and 8 to 10
parts of aluminum sulphate. Paper
is then produced as with ordinary
rag pulp.
Barometoic Bells.—-To inhabitants of Lebbeke, Belguim, the hearing of certain small bells four or
fivo miles away is a certain indication of rain. Ono boll, about six
miles distant is heard twico a year
—in March or April and in September or October—and always during
the same atmospheric conditions.
M. de Bidder finds that not only
does moisture favor the transmission
of sound but that contrary winds
are not always an obstacle.
FiuiKa at Ukseen Targets.- -
An electric theodolite, giving hidden gunners the exact distance and
direction of an enemy's vessels—
whether stationary or moving—bas
been sot up at Maddelrna, Italy,
whoro a battery proteots the island
of Oaprera. From behind a hill—
on which is placed the electric apparatus—tho gunners are enabled to
tire with the utmost precision, while
any effective return tire is prevented by the inability of the foe to
fix tho location of the invisible guns.

the seeds of the one will often
produco tho other, while the fruits
of both kinds have occasionally been
met with on the same branch. It
is now shown, moreover, that the
entire yield of the trees may change.
M. Lampierre, a nursery-man of
Montrouge, France, reports that a
Lord Napier nectarine tree in hiB
grounds last year bore nothing but
peaches, and M. Ferdinand Jamin,
of the French National Horticultural Society, confirms this observation by the statement that a few
years ago, amonj his own trees, a
Newington early nectarine tree,
without any assignable cause, all at
onco became transformed into on
ordinary peaoh tree.
The Longest Hdjian Tail.—
Setting aside the reports of travelers
concerning a race of tailed men
among the Nyams-Nyams tribe of
Central Africa, it appears that more
or less creditable historians have
cited from ISO to 200 cases of persons with tails. Max Bartels, a
German who has written u monograph on the subject, describes 21
well authenticated esses, including
those of tails connected with the
body, tails with free movement, and
cutaneous prolongations. The tails
are usually conical or spherical in
shape, and from two or three up to
live inches in length. An extraordinary specimen, however, has just
been examined and photographed at
Saigon, by Etienne Babaud, tho
length being ten inches and the
slrapo cylindrical. It belongs to a
Moi boy twelvo years old, and is
soft and smooth, with no bony frame.
The Moderx Demand for Sticks.
—The forests and jungles of tho
world are now being scoured to an
astonishing extent in search of raw
materials for canes and umbrella
handles. A collection of such materials as are employed has been placed
in the Kew Museum, and includes a
great variety of sticks. The ash,
aspen, bamboo, bay, birch, blackthorn, boxwood, briar, cedar, chestnut, coffee, cork, dogwood, ebony,
eucalyptus, hazel, holly, hornbeam, maple, medlar, myrtle,
oak, palm, olive, orange, pimento, pomegranate, annkewood, and
trees and shrubs, of othor kinds,
are forced to contribute. Stems of
a cabbage growing ten or twelve
feet high, and of the mullein, are
used. Supplies are largely drawn
from the East, and the importance
of the trade is indiealed by this
estimate, from Mr. J. B. Jackson,
of the annual imports into England
of some of the principal canes:
Bamboos, from China and Japan,
5,000,000; partridge eanes, from
China, 2,6000,000 ; Tonquin canes,
from China, 20,000,000; Malacca,
from Siak, 250,000 ; whangee, from
Japan, 000,000; othor Eastern oanes
600,000. In addition, various rattans amounting in weight to about
1500 tons are imported from Singapore and other eastern countries; and
somo 5,000,000 stioks other than
canes, from Algeria, Austria Hungary and France, The total value
of the imported stioka in a raw state
is (11,600,000.

Cronin's murder. An attempt may be

A  OBRAT BOBEUB.
London, May 25,—One of the results of the   Roman Catholic   con-
grosses   in    various  countries    on
the   continent has been the determination    to    form   an    interna*
tional league the objeot of whioh ahall
be to vindicate tbe rights of tbe papacy
to temporal power and the functions
which wero formerly enjoyed by the
Holy Sen.   This scheme has   been
gradually growing, and ir now fairly
underway.   Measures  are  being already taken to acoomplish the organi*
/■iitinn of the  league.     The  leaders
in the Austrian,   French,  Belgian,
Spanish and   Portuguese congresses,
cunstitute a provisional committee to
this end, who work outside of direct
publio appeal.   The promoters will depend  upon  their   ability   to   work
upon,    and   with,   events   of   the
time through special diplomatic agents
of   tho    Vatican,    who    will    be
secretly acceeded to  several European governments.   (Jutside tbe triple
alliance the emperor Franz Josef of
Austria has since the melancholy death
of Crown Prince Rudolph developed a
very strong religious tendency, and
seems to devote himself wholly to serious matters.   It is reported among
other things he is very anxious to assist the pope tn the recovery of hii
firmer temporalities, and is likely to
exert himself a good deal to this end.
The Neue Freie Pr-mse, of  Wein, lays
that King Humbert avoided Austrian
Territory ib going to Berlin to visit
tbo Kaiser Wilhelm and will shun it
with equal care on his way home on
account of the imperial attitude towards the popery.

London, May 25.—A local paper
says: if the elements favor her in
New York, the Valkyrie will make a
hot race for the America cup, as it is
said by all hands that she is much
faster than most of the yaohta that
have gone over for the trophy.

Italy, Signor Crispi replied that it
would be improper for him to enter

questioner that the alliance between
the two countries wai very strong.
MB. STKAD HAS TO PAY,
London, May 24..—The Pall Mall'

accusing a divorced woman and her
letter of having unjustly placed the

this being a charge which the judge
who granted the divorce had refused
to consider. The Gazette was sued for
libel and condemned to pay a penalty
amounting with costs to $9,000. Mr.
Yates Thompson, proprietor of the
paper, said to Mr. Stead, the editor:
''This was entirely your fault; you
have been taking Wedon and every
other crank who came along; you must
suffer this yourself or resign the editor*

decided to pay rather than vacate hia

J'ecusiso Vancouver is "big for its
size" and has got "copper toes" and
"red tops" on its boots, it needn't
imagine that it can wipe up the mud
of its Westminster Avenue with the
sturdy grangers of Kiehmond municipality. By the report of the Kiehmond council in another column, it
will be seen that the sturdy grangers
aforesaid have put on their heaviest
cowhides, with spikes in the heels,
and have jumped onto the "sassy"
Vancouver council with both feet.
We are glad to see it; for wo believe
that that body deserved a "punching" for its ill-advised and unwarrantable, not to say insulting, resolution of April last, charging the
Richmond municipality, in an irras-
cible and bullying style, with breach
of faith in the matter of the North
Arm bridges, We expressed ourselves sometime ago on the conduct
of the Newt in supporting those
charges, and we are glad that the
Richmond grangers have risen in
their might and their majesty and
returned the communication enclosing the cheeky resolution which the
Vancouver council had tbe gall to
send them, and have besides administered such a "sidewiper" to the
big-boy-in-the-top-boots as will teach
the sappy youth better luck next
time, and effectually dispel any
ideas he may entertain that the
"bone and sinew" of Richmond have
got any "hayseed in theirn."
Everyone will be glad that the
weather and other circumstances
have been propitious for the grand
two days' celebration of the Queen's
Birthday, otosing to-day, which our
friends of the capital, assisted by
their numerous visitors from other
parts of the provinco as well as a
contingent of our American cousins,
have been holding.   According to
our despatches the celebration has
been a gratifying success in every
particular, and it may he expected
'   that the festive Victorians will be
all smiles, dimples and good humor
for the rest of the season, or until
the dark shadow of a China steamer's smokestack, passing on its way
to the mainland, falls athwart their
little harbor, and freezes the happy
smile into a  discontented frown.
But   perhaps  this  cause for dis-
quitude and  ill-digestion may be
removed  ere long, or lost to sight
and mind by the granting of some
compensatory concession, which will
answer  nearly the same purpose.
Speaking of celebrations, Victoria
has had the fun, and the trouble incidentally, nearly all to herself this
year so far as the Twenty-fourth is
concerned, Nanaimo being the only
oity besides that has mn a separate
show.   It is  a distinct exception
to the rule that the Royal Oity
on the banks of 'the noble Fraser—
■ and par excellence the loyal city also
—should forego its invariable practice to celebrate, rain or shine, the
natal day of its august sovereign and
god-mother.   That an exception was
made this year does not argue any
abatement of loyalty.   We believe
that the majority of our citizens held
practically the same views on the
.   aubject as were expressed in these
columns over a month ago, namely,
that, as the provincial exhibition is
to be held here this fall, it is desirable that Westminster should concentrate all its "celebrating" for the
year into the three days set apart
for that occasion—when,  if  our
oitizens  all do their duty a grand
time oan be had—and in the meantime assist by our presence and cooperation in the respective celebrations of our sister cities.   The disadvantage.'* incident to holding horse
races and other sports on the streets,
and the faot chat proper grounds for
these  purposes are in course of
preparation at the new park, were
pointed out, and constituted another
strong and very good reason, which
had its due weight in determining
our citizens to drop their usual celebration  of the Queen's Birthday
until facilities are possessed for carrying on the popular sport, of such
occasions in a fitting and convenient
manner.   Under the circumstances,
and having in view our past experience in street celebrations, we must
commend the wisdom of the Royal
Oity'. lieges in restraining the usual
expression of their undoubted loyalty on the present occasion.   We
venture to predict that Westminster
will yet have some rousing Twenty-
fourth., if Her Orabiou. Majesty, as
her dutiful subjects will ever pray,
il spared to enjoy them.   For thia
year, as Victoria has "spread" itself
on the occasion so auspiciously celebrated, and aa Vanoouver will do.

the Royal Oity see to it that she

Amoor. It will be over 4,000 miles
in length, and will form the largest
single line of railway in the world.
The country) traversed, southern
Siberia, is a rich ono, which needs
but railway communication to make
it an important faotor in the commerce of the world. Notwithstanding the intense cold of winter, even
in the most southern parts of the
vast territory, the summers are decidedly warm and wheat almost
everwhere along the line of the projected railway is easily grown, and
Indian corn in some localities. From
a Russian point of view, the opening
of this vast country to the overflowing population of European Russia
is more important than the mere development of its resources. The
surplus population, instead of drifting to foreign countries, will be kept
at home and will increase the numeral and general strength of the
Russian empire. Free access to
choap lands will also tend to allay
the discontent and revolutionary
movements which have caused so
much anxiety to tho government
England and several other European
powers will view the new enterprise
with satisfaction, inasmuch as the
development of Siberia will long
afford an outlet to Russian enterprise and ambition, and check the
disposition tbat power has manifested to extend its dominions towards
the Mediterranean and India.

Dr. Todd, president of the
Georgia State Medical Society,
read at the annual meeting of that
body, held at Atlanta recently, a
paper on "Longevity," which possesses great intrinsic interest, and at
the same time is gratifying as showing how much medical and sanitary
science and a more rational mode of
life have done to prolong the human
span, and how much better in every
way are the conditions of to-day than
of those "good old times" for the return of which sentimentalists vainly
sigh. The doctor is modest in his
claims, making no effort to monopolize in the name of the medical profession credit for a betterment in
which so many agencies play parts;
but he does claim, and with reason,
that the intelligent physician has
had much to do with the result, and
that the death rate of the various
peoples of the globe bears a ratio
very nearly inverse to the number
of qualified physicians among them,
The highest death rate in Europe
is that of Russia, ranging from 20
per thousand in Oourland and 22
per thousand in the Baltic province,
there being many physicians in both
districts, to 49 in places where there
aro but few. But one-half of the
children born in some parts of Russia
reach the seventh year, and of 1,000
male children only from 480 to 490
reach the age of 21 yean, and of
these only 375 are able-bodied.
Russia, with all its teeming population, has only 15,414 regular physicians, and one surgeon to 100,000
population. The United States,
having a doctor of medicine for
every 600 population, shows the
lowest death rate in the world, England following. The average life
expectancy in the United States is
now 55 years; in England among
the urban population it is 50, and
among the run-lists 54 years plus.
Russians have a life expectanoy of
but 28 years, approximately, and
Chilians of the same, while in Ella-
bed, in the Soudan, 23 years is a
generation. Thefaverage life in the
Rome of the O-esars was 18 yeara;
now it is 40 years. Within
fifty years the average in France hu
increased from 28 to 45 J years, and
in the days of Queen Elizabeth the
English average was but 20 years.
Dr. Todd ascribes tbe great and progressive change for the better to advanced medical knowledge, better
drainage and diet, greater cleanliness, and to vaccination and the use
of antesthetici, quinine, and the like.
He thinks that quinino alone has
added two years to the average life
of civilized man. To these agencies
should be added the decrease of war,
the more lenient laws, and the
greater temperance of our day.

THE  TERRIBLE TEREDO.
A Marine Worm That Destroys Timbers
and Sinks Lurge Hhipa,
A study of tho history ond habits of this
singular worm will bo found neither uniu-
tercstiug nor unprofitable, says tho Atlanta
Constitution, lta habitat was originally in
tho tropic seas, but being carried in the
limbers of vessels into North Ameritan and
European waters, it has become the terror
and dread of wharf men and taptains of unsheathed sailing craft along tho Atlantic
and Pacifio coasts, and in the harbors of
numbora of Mediterranean cities. According to the classification of Linnaeus, this bivalve belongs to the family of Pholadidaa
and genus teredo, so called from their habit
of destroying snip or other timber. The
elicll in equally valved, and in form it is
short, thiok and round and widely open in
front and rear. This shell Ib situated at the
inner ood of a tube, somewhat cylindrical in
shape, and cither straight or crooked, as
ths caso may bo; this tube being open at
each ond in tlio full-grown specimens, and
lined or coated with a white, chalky paste
or substance, whioh seems to be its digest*
ivc apparatus. The weapon of the teredo is
not Its teoth, as might bo supposed. This
singular animal has still another peculiarity, dependent, howover, upon the one last
mentioned, for sinco its instrument is its
foot, so it feeds itself not from the mouth,
but from tho foot itself. Tho valves above
noted aro simply appendages of the foot. In
lift, if a teredo Bhould have his foot amputated be would in a most vital sense
"loao hl3 grip." In the center of the
circular opening of the valves the foot is
protruded, like the blade concealed in a
spring cane, and the entire arrangement
constitutes a boxing-machine of power in-
c incoivablo in so small an objeot. But the
tn I'englh of this raachino becomes apparent
v- hon, upon' a closer examination, one notes
tiio strong, ruober-liko ridges of the valves,
which can contract with great force, and
the comparatively immense size of the
great abductor muscle which enables the
teredo to use his sharp foot with the ease
of an auger passing through the softest
pino.
This worm attains often a great length,
but it ib usually from one foot to a yard
long, its size depending on the length of
time it has been in tbe wood, and frequently on tbo size of tbe wood itself. It is provided vith two respiratory tubes, eaoh of
which has a syphon attached to a calcareous, flattened, triangular plate on the outsido of tho body. It has two heads, if
Buch they can be called, attached to tho extremity of a tube much smaller than tho
main trunk, and which are eaoh (tho small
tubes) about six inches long; or, in other
words, tho main body splits into two small
tubes at about a foot or six inches from
whero the head is in a teredo, and where
tho tail would be in a snake. This worm is
oviparious, and whon the young are born
(with a smooth shell) they swim around by
moans of a vibratile cilia; sometimes
creeping with the foot until old enough to
begin work on apiece of wood. A good,
nlco, now pile having been selected, they
fasten themselves to tho wood by means of
tlio suction apparatus in their heads, strike
lu with thoir foot and bore inwardly until
only tho head remains outsido. Thon they
fasten themselves to the very edge, just aa
n clerk will fasten sheets of paper togothor,
turning over the Bides of a brass clamp,
and, honceforward, their sole aim, object
and ambition in life Ib to grow, boro and
inulta sawdust; Small when tbey enter,
tbey could no moro creep backward out of
their original hole after feasting a month or
two on a rich pine log tban a camol could go
through tbo eye of a needle.
Still another species of this log-eater is
tho worm classified by Leach, Limnoria
terebrans, genus Isopoda, which is a minute
sossilc,oyed crustacean, and which oats in-
I to tho piles several feet bolow tho low
. water mark; and in vast numbers.  But in
■' destructive power these latter can not equal
tho teredo.   I seen a specimen. of a pile at*
j tucked by tho teredo, and one' channel, bo
j ginning almost as small as tbe diameter of
', a knit tin? needle, gradually widened downward in n tortuous courso until, at an aperture ou tbo opposite side- of tho log (which
bud boon gnawed lengthways,) the size of
the pusoago had growu to quito an inch in
width, and the worm had grown in length
t, semi uud eight inches, as nearly as could
bo measured.
• Ou tho coast of California, I am credibly
informed tbo teredo sometimes attains a
.diameter of two- inohes and a length of
fifteen feot. And, so far as any ono knows,
their only food seems to be tbo dust which
thoy create rasping their way through thu
logs.  This dust is deposited by tho foot in
1 tho tube lined with the chalky membrane,
and instead of crawling Inward nnd onward
ns tliolr burrowiugs lengthen, they simply
grow in due proportion, their head remaining It its placo. But there thoy find tholr
punishment; for tholr size thus increased
and thoir log onco consumed and broken off,
thoy fall out into tho water, and tbeir
career onds in tho maw of tho noxt hungry
ask that chances their way. Onco their ono
log is dualoyod they can- never begin lifo
again. So tbo wise teredo is careful to select a good, big log to begin with.
Another trait of this worm ts that tt will
never attack floating timber. But woe to
tbo ship riding at anchor if hor timbers aro
not protected by metal sheetings. Many a
noble vcdsoI lias beon lost with all on board
in mid ocean owing to tho Insidious ravages
V mado by the worm as she lay quietly ln port
taking im cargo and passengers. But as it
rarely happens that there is not somo visible compensation in nature's works and
creatures, to ovon the teredo prove needful
by boring into and disintegrating tho sunken
wrecks, timbers and other obstructions
which would else render navigation in some
harbors dangerous. It is astonishing how
rapidly a wreck will disappear In somo
channels particularly infested by tho teredo. |
Uow to prevent thom from ruining a pile
almost as soon as It wu put down was long
a vexed question with men in maritime
towns; but experiments ana invention have
solved this matter as they have given tho
solution of many others. The logs arc now
kynnlzed or eroosotcd. A log properly
treated will nave a life of at least fifty
tours, und may bid defiance to ovory teredo
but over bo'i*,, a nolo or who would wish
to boro ono.

them to fly about in, and every day tbe
florist sends a basket of flowers for them to
fly about lo, and every day tho florist sends
a basket of flowers to extract tbo honey
from. Thoy aro liko littlo rainbows flying
about tho room, and they light nn tho hoad
of their dainty mistress with perfect free
dom, Bhe seems to have an affinity for the
feathered tribe. OuUideherchejnber window Is a box for a dove who always sleeps
there at night end peeks at tbo window-
pano when ho wants to como in. He has
perfect freedom, but chooses to remain in
the houso many hours in the courso of the
day. This sumo young lady comes in to
grcot a visitor with a canary poised lightly
on hor head and a fluffy bullfinch hopping
along after her. The latter Js veiy jealous
of tho canary tnd will peck him and persecute him whenever he gets a chance.

t'nlliTi-MMl Wlilshy Weulura.
There is in the city, as well as in
every town in British Columbia, a class
of liquor dealers who havo hitherto
escaped paying licenses, although the
dealings are often times large and important. These are the Chineae merchants. It: is safe to sny that scarcely
a Chineae shop in town does not sell
wliiakey or intoxicants of some kind.
A man arreBted yesterday had in his
posossinn a bottle of Chinoso whisky,
distilled from rice, and n more vile
decoction it would bo hard to m-VlU*
factum. This liquor is largely aold to
the Indiana, who am unable to obtain
intoxicants iu any respectable house
in town. Somehow the Chinese na
liquor dealers have been completely
overlooked in tho past, and tho trade
has been prolitablo to them iu no
small degree It is to bo hoped the
proper authorities will tako hold of
tho matter and romedy tho great evil
whioh haa hnd free scope for so many
years.

Tbe Channel Buoys,
Tho channel buoys are in bad shape
again and require immediate attention.
No. \i buoy haa not been in position
for somo months and ia said to be
stored in sumo warehouse. It should
be in proper position. No. 10 buoy is
below No. 8 and has drifted across tho
channel, where it will cause some
steamboat to conieto grief one of theso
days •if not restored to its proper
anchorage. The captain of the snug*
boat SampBon is supposed to havo
charge of tho buoys at tho river's
mouth, but as he is not allowed to act
without instructions from tho government engineer at Victoria, tho fact of
his having charge of them ia not of uny
advantnge to thu interests of Westminster. There seems to be a little too
much red tape nbout matters of thia
kind which require immediate nttentlon, Capt. Grant Bhould have charge
of the buoys, nnd be allowed to act
without orders whonover ho thinks it
necessary.
Excursion io I'ltl Lake.
Tlie str. Adelaide which had boon
churtored by tho Young Poople'a Association of St. Andrews (Presbyterian)
church for tho purpose pf making a
picnic excursion ou tho 24th, cleared
according to arrangements nt 8:30
o'clock.in the morning for Pitt Lake.
Besides Presbyterians several invited
guests of other denominations availed
themselves of this opportunity fora
day's outing. The party in all numbered ubout 125 of which 70 per cont.
were ladies. On arriving at a point
within a few miles of the head of the
hike tho party disembarked and lunch
was prepared on the pebbly beach.
Tea aud nil kinds of eatables were in
abundance, which speaks well for the
generous hospitality of the Presbyterian
ladies. After all hud satisfied them
salves with those many good things
thoy embarked und tho steamer proceeded to the head nf the lake in order
to afford tho party un opportunity of
"Uking in" the majestic grandeur of
tho nut-rounding soenery. The Adelaide returned to the city ut 7:30
o'clock, and notwithstanding the drizzle
of rain that prevailed during the
greater portion of the day, nil expressed themselves woll pleased with
the outing.
THE QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY.     •■
Celebrated In a Quiet Way by tbe People
ofihe Royal City.
Children Cryfor Pltcher'sCastorla
The 70th anniversary of our noblo
Queen's natal day was observed at
Westminster as a publio holiday.
There was no attempt at oolebrating
tbe occasion in a public manner, but in
a tjuiet way the dny waa thoroughly
enjoyed. Unfortunately tho weather
waa unpleasant in tho afternoon nnd
many little picnic parties were obht-ed
to pack up und movo homewards just
as tho fun was about to commence. At
8 o'clock the Presbyterian Sunday
School scholars mid a large number of
the congregation left by the steamer
Adelaide for Pitt Lake, amidst the
many beauties of which a most enjoyable day wub Bpent. Dozens of baskets,
stored with all the good thinga which
tend to make tho lives of children
bearable, wore taken ulong, and an well
did the quality of the edibles suit the
tastes of thu excursionists that the
hampers presented nothing but a
dreary aud vacant waste at the closo of
the return trip.
The oarly train carried many peoplo
to Vancouver, as did also the 1 o'clock
train to Hustings. The incoming
trains were nil crowded, nnd it is estimated that fully 300 Vuncouverites
spent the day in tho city. Flags wore
flying from every mast head and tho
shipping in the harbor wns all decorated with attractive bunting, but no
other attempt at decoration was made.
No provision having been made to
have the usual salute tired by the Battery, a few enthuaisstics who ' would
not let tho day go by unobserved,
gatherod at Mr. Thos. Ovens' machine
shop and there with, the aid of two
anvils a salute of 21 guns was fired.
The salute was fired under the direction of Lieut. Mowatand Lieut. Bonson.
The celebration at Hastings attracted nearly 1500 people, who remained
throuxhout the day despite the raiu
which foil heavily towards the closo
of the afternoon. The programmo
contained 22 items, themostimportant
of whieh was a wrestling match for tho
championship of British Columbia,

Richmond Council.
Council met on Saturday May Ilth;
ull present.
Communications.-—From A. Ewen,
complaining of assessments; filed.
From P. S. Firbroche, asking that his
name bo placed ou tho assessment roll;
granted. From tho city clork of Vancouver, enclosing copy of resolution
passed by that council on tho 15th of
April referring to a breach of public
faith on the partof this council in not
constructing bridgeB over Norlh Ann;
this communication aud resolution was
not received, but the clerk was instructed to return the same to the
council of Vancouver, by resolution of
the council, stating in tho same that
their resolution was based on n misrepresentation of the case in question;
that thore never was any definite nr*
rnngement made with that city or the
C. P. R. Co., further that this corporation would raise one half of the estimated cost of tho structures (vis- $10,-
000) if the provincial government
would pay the other half; that the
amount required to complete tho work
would be nearly double that amount;
that this counoil did raise the 810,000
agreed upon; that this corporation
could not uSBumo the position of principal in the matter, had left nil in the
hands of the government, and, in fact,
had done everything in ita power to
hasten the construction, and claimed
that this council has not in any manner attempted to shirk its obligations;
furthor that, whilo this council was
doing all that waa possible -to do, the
Vancouver council had passed a most
unwarrantable and unjustifiable resolution, and had made an unjust and
unreasonable demand, and placed this
corporation in a falso light before the
public—a matter very much to be regretted, because it gives grcunds for
believing that the resolution was
prompted by selfish motives, and because it is likely to endanger and
check tho growth of the unity thut did
and should oxist between that oity aud
this corporation. A copy in full, of
which the nbove is only a small part
has been forwarded to the mayor of
Vancouver, with lhe objectionable
resolution enclosed. A petition signed by Alex. Kilgour and 15 others,
ratepayers of Sea Island, asking the
council to adhere strictly to the scheme
of opening tho rond along the river
from the road ut the Presbyterian
church to tho bridge location. Peti
tion received and referred to the
board cf works to report on at next
meeting.
Repoet,—To the reeve and council ; gentlemen : We, your committee,

Police Court.
(Before T. O. Atkinson, P.M.)
John Walsh, charged with vagrancy.
Capt. Pittendrigh appeared before tho
court and complained uf Walsh as a
public nuisance. Yesterday afternoon
he got his head caught between two
pickets in Ex-Mayor Dickinson's fence,
and there H remained u disgrace to
himself and an eyesore to the community for over an hour, when a constable
was sent for and took him to the lookup. Walsh asked his honor to give
him another chunce and he would -'put
tho peg in" for now and all time. This
was an old promise of John's and the
court put no reliance in it. Evidence
adduced thut hi- was even offered to sell
the family bible to obtain whisky.
Sentenced to 4 months in the pro*
vincial gaol with hard labor,
John Henry, a Langley Indian,
charged with being drunk and incapable
pleaded guilty.   Fined 85 and costs,
Hugh McColl, charged with being
drunk aud supplying liquor to Indiana,
pleaded not guilty. McColl was one
of tho most villainous looking characters who hns occupied the dock in
many months, He wus profane and
impertinent to the court and took no
trouble to ahow his contempt of the
bench or nny punishment that might
be inflicted upon him. He invited
the court to "go ahead aud do the
beat you can," After being sentenced
to 3 months with hard labor, McColl
vented his anger on the court in no
gontle language.

The Allan Hue steamship Polynesian
was badly damaged in Wednesday's
collision with the Donaldson steamer

course. The saddest part of the whole
affair ia that tho people of Point- Aux
Trembles village offered uo insist nice.
The place ia nearly all French, nnd
thoy atood on the banks by tht side of
the parish priest offering prayers.
They saw the drowning men, but did
not think of trying to save them. The

the old Omaha townsite company in
