The London Spectator may have
an eye for color, but it is not always
the rii*;ht color. This literary journal,
referring to tho complexions that
form under the South African sun,
compares it with tho "parchment
color of the Yankee, tho gruyness of
the Australian, tho frosty purple of
tho Oanadian, eti!." Now, wo take
exception to this misleading reference to Canada; tho othors seem
appropriate enough. Just imagine
calling the bright, ruddy hue in tho
checks nnder our invigorating
climate purple. Tho critic has
never sniffed a Lake Ontario winter
breeze io hia Hfe.—Empire.
An English friend of the lato
Laurence Oilphant says that thero
never was a man so indifferent
about money. He came one day to
a bank in London, and asked for a
box that he had long ago deposited
there, nnd which he believed to
contain valuable securities and important papers. The. box was
brought; he hud no key, and there
was none in the possession of the
custodians of the box. It was
therefore broken open. What was
tho contents 1 A battered old mcer-
schaum pipe, and nothing more.
And what were the results of this
discovery on Oilphant 1 Not any
expression of disappointment or
regret, but peal upon peal of that
delightful and infections laughter
which all who knew him will ever
connect with tho personality of
Laurence Oilphant.

Estimating in tho June Forum
tho relative importance in the education of an English-speaking man
of tho ancient and the modern
languages, Prof. John Stuart Blackie
says: "While Latin nnd Greek
will never cense to hold their place
in tho front rank of educational
agents it is nn anachronism of the
grossest kind to insist on a prolonged
study of theso two dead languages
the necessary basis for the
general culture of a well-educated
gentleman in the latter end of this
nineteenth century ; the moro so,
that experience has taught that
out of twenty young men who have
been driven through this routine of
tho dead languages at school, in
after-life make no use of them, and
tho fruits which their boasted classical training has to show arn in lhe
inverse ratio of the labor spent
upon it."      	
A most amusing episode of tho
land lenguo agitation happened nt
Portlaw, County Waterfora, a short
timo ago, says an exchange A
meeting was held to denounce a man
named Hickey, who, in defiance of
the league, had rented a farm from
which 11 tenant hnd been evicted.
When tho mon had thoir say, two
girls named Margaret Sheohan and
Mary Sullivau got up and respectively proposed and seconded the
following extraordinary resolution :
"That we, the young girls of Water-
ford, Tipperary, and Kilkenny,
resolvo and promiso this day, beforo
this vast multitude, to treat with
scorn and contempt any matrimonial proposals from Michael
Hickey." Hickey ahould now
imitate Dickens' character and
inform Mary or Margaret that
Barkis is wii lin'. There appears to
bo no othor way of escaping such a
boycott ns this,

eaid he expected a full, exhaustive and

speech. The foreman of iho grand

OTTAWA NOTES.
Ottawa, June 11.—Tho Weldon
extradition bill will be put iuto effect
as soon as it is ratified by the Imperial
government. Although it is retroactive in piiuciple the extradition of
American fugitives already in Canada
will not be permitted, because parliament clearly expressed its intentions
lust session when it struck out the retroactive clause. The legislators, of
course, had their trouble for their
pains, ns ull legislation affecting extradition is retroactive.

ONE PURE ARTICLE OF FOOD.
TlieKoj-al Baking Ponder Officially Com-
mended. — Wbolmome Action of Ibe
New Jersey State Board of Health.
The action of the Now Jersey State
Board of Health in publishing the
names of the alum baking powders
sold in that state will be commended
by all who are in fuvor of pure and
honest food. Scarce an article sold
enters more generally into the daily
food of every one than baking powders.
It iB well understood that the alum
and the alum and phosphate baking
powders are detrimental to health,
and consumers only require to be informed as to the names of these un*
wholesome brands iu otder to avoid
them.
This information the manufacturers
of the alum baking powders are endeavoring it seems to suppress. It is
stated tint they went bo far as to seek
(unsuccessfully, however,) for an injunction to prohibit the New Jersey
authorities from proceeding with their
rccont investigation and expose.
It is particularly gratifying to consumers to know that the baking powder
which they havo so long been accustomed to using, the Royal, has invariably gone through these analyses not
only without a reflection againBt it 01
impurity or unwholeiomeneas, but
each time more emphatically endorsed
as the superior of4 all the baking
powders of tho market.
The health authorities of a numbor
of other States liuve also recently made
exhaustive examinations of this character, and with the uniform result of
finding tho Royal superior to all
others. Tho United Statos Government Chemist, after an examination
for the Indian Department, made the
emphatic statement that "The R'iyal
Baking Powder is the purest in quality
and highpst in strength of any baking
powder of which I have knowledge."
Tho authorities ot Canada have been
making au elaborate study of the baking powders sold there. Tho oflicial
analyst of Ontario says as the result of
his investigation that he "finds the
Royal Baking Powder far superior to
the others," and goes so far as tu "re-
ct-mmend its use in preference to any
other." Likewise, a series of ovor live
hundred tests for strength made by
public analysts and othor chemists of
prominenco throughout the country
show it to produce an average of 25 per
cent, moro leavening gas than any of
its competitors.
A company that maintains this high
standard for ita product against the
temptations of the enormously greater
profit that would accrue from the use
of the oheaper materials employed by
others (for the alum baking powders
are produced at a oost of threo cents
per pound) is entitled to this publio
commendation and endorsement.

EXCITEMENT IN   FRANCE,
Paris, Juoe 12.—There is a vast
deal of excitement over the arbitrary
arrests at Augoulenic. Last nights
angry debate in the chamber of deputies has increased it. Boulangists declare that never in the worst days of tho
empire haB there been such wanton
use of power. M. ConstaiiBe defence is
satisfactory to nobody. He could not
explain why a peaceable electoral meeting should have been prevented, nor
why representatives of the people protesting against the acts should be arrested. The hearing in the coses of
M. M, Laisaut, LaGuierre and De-
Roulede, at Angouleme, on charge of
rebellion against tho agents of tbe
government, was tu have been continued 10 day, but owing to the agitation
it has been postponed until to-morrow,

Halifax has a sensation, according to a lato despatch.
Thirty years ago Goo. Campbell,
now Capt. Campbell, courted and seduced Esther Fletcher, and a child
was born. Campbell, who is now sixty,
married last fall a widow lady, and the
coming trinl in the supremo court of
Esther Fletoher's suit against him for
$30, 000 damages is creating a great
sensation. It was generally ouppi'sed
that Campbell, if ever he married,
would marry Miss Fletcher, of whose
ohild he acknowledged being  father.
not gpion* Camp.
A correspondent of the Truth at Hot
Springs Camp writes: A ride of 3
miles up a gradual incline some 3,000
foet landed us at No.l mine, whioh wu
bought last fall as a prospect by G. B.
Wright and Victoria capitalists at $20,*
000. I found this a model camp, with
every improved requirement so far as
they have gone. They are now shipping 3 tons per day to Helena, Montana, and, in a few days, when a crosscut drift-tunnel at a lower depth is
completed they will beable to take out
5 ton* per day, which, as work is proceeded with, will be increased until,
within a year, they expect to be able
totakeout50tonsperday. Thiaishigh-
grade ore, with grey copper and wire
as well ob horn silver, interspersed with
some galena and gangue and a large
amount of carbonates. It is said that
the shipments have already cleared the
cost of the mine and most of the development work done. Beyond and
northwest of this olaim numerous leads
have been located showing equally
high grade ore. The Deliah, Let-her-
gn Gallagher, Daddy Gallagher, and
Young Gallagher (the three last named
being owned by the Wheelers, Americans with some means), are, perhaps,
moBt worthy of notico. Thon below
is a claim owned by a Mr, Cooper of
Spokane Falls, It has been prospected for 2 yoars, and at every point for
GOO feet along tho lead has been found
rich carbonates and galena carrying
from 20 to 300 ounces silver to the
ton. Next ia the Little Donald, owned by Davenport & Co., who have 60
tons of ore tacked ready for market.
They have mado a very good start,
having sunk an incline shaft 60 feet
in 0 feet aolid ore, which is galena
with Kino black-jack carrying Inch ia
silver. The Krao, owned by the Wheelers, is n high-grade mine, with wire and
some hum silver nnd carbonates and
galona carrying silver. Considerable
prospecting has been done in three different shafts. The United is a claim
just located. It is uncovered for 30
feet and shows n wide vein, 8 feet of
which is solid aalona with carbonates
aud carrying a good deal of antimony.
A hundred other locations have boen
made, many equally promising as those
namod. The Aiusworth is a mass of
galena ore, equally as large as the
Hendryx, who claim that they contract to get out 300 tons per day,
as they have written to the manager
of tho Kootenay Smelting & Trading
Syndicate at Rovelstoko.
In Aid or Seattle.
Seattle's sister city, Tacoma, list

thouaand more, making a total cf over
$20,000, Portland collected over
$5000 on Friday, and also devoted the
sum of $5,400 (collected for the Fourth

If nny doubts existed in the minds
of any that the water works by-law-
would carry by a largo majority tomorrow, tho public meeting last
night, and its outcomo, must have
completely dispelled tlio illusion.
In all tlie large, intelligent, and
thoroughly earnest assemblage only
two wero found that mado any attempt to criticize tho action of tho
council with respect to the water
works scheme, and these two will
admit themselves thut they mado a
sorry hand of the business, nnd
merely wasted the timo of tho meeting by carrying oa a very stupid
burlesque, a fact wliich the audience
of course perceived, and sustained
tho infliction with tho utmost good
humor. Tho lucid explanations of
Aldermen Scoullar und Curtis, and
the weighty and telling expressions
of his worship Mayor Hendry, the
chairman of the meeting, as well as
the remarks of the mover and seconder of the resolution of confidence,
were all appreciatively received by
the large iiudienco, whicli showed its
good senso and thorough grasp of
the situation by passing, without a
dissenting voice, the resolution,
moved by Mr. Brown, endorsing the
action of the council in the water
works matter and pledging the
meeting's support to tho scheme,
By the very full report of tho meeting published elsewhere, it will bo
seen that several vexed points, with
some people, were taken up an9 ventilated so thoroughly, and wrong
impressions corrected so ably, that
it would be almost repetition to go
into them again.
park improvements would mean.
More especially as the provincial
exhibition is to bo held in tho city
tips fall, and Westminster stands
publicly pledgod to redeem its past
bad record in exhibition matters,
does it becomo imperative that
wo should make at least decent
preparation for that important
event. If the amount designed by
the by-law for park improvements
is not made forthcoming by the
action of tho ratepayers to-morrow,
the city will hardly bo able to make
creditable arrangements for the
show, and, apart from tho exhibition, very desirable park improvements will have to bo indefinitely
postponed, Tiie fact that thero is a
quostion ns to whether the money
already spent upon tho park has
been wisely expended in every particular, will not justify such a stultification by the city as to refuse to
decently completo what it has undertaken. Mistakes aro liable to bo
made by the bost and wisest; but it
is the part of wisdom to profit by
theso, and not to crawl into a holo
and pull the holo in after us,
from sheer cowardice of continued
action. The royal city musn't
tako nny back water on its park,
and it won't. With respect to the
street and sidewalk improvements,
we aro convinced it is not necessary
to say anything more than has beon
said. Everyone must appreciate
the necessity of theso improvements,
and wo cannot imagine that lialf-a-
do**en votes will be recorded against
this measure.

While the result of the meeting
was perfectly satisfactory, and failed
to educo any practical opposition to
tho water works by-law, it is not
improbable that there aro a number
in the city opposed to the by-law—
not because their attitude i.s reasonable and patriotic, or can ha supported by reason or argument—which
they are painfully conscidus it cannot—but for the sufficient reason to
themselves that their private interests happen to run counter to tho
public good, and they prefer to sacrifice the latter. To theso may Jbe
added u fow who, like tlio old woman
in the play, poso as "tho guardian
angel, of this town," and therefore
feel constitutionally obliged to roll a
log across tho track whenevor the
chariot of progress "yets np steam,"
for foar it might telescope tho apparition of "bluo ruin" which is never
long absent from thoir day dreams.
Such opposition as we have described
above would not, it will lie readily
admitted, seek to air itself at a public meeting, where it might have to
give a reason for the faith (1) that
was-in it; so it is not to be hastily
assumed that tho two objectors at
the meeting are the only determined
opponents of the by-law. Indeed,
wo believe they received the reward
of their bravery in attending tho
meeting, and wero convovted from
the error of their way on the spot.
What may fairly bo inferred from
the meeting, its proceedings, and
result, is, that while it is not demon
strated that there is no opposition
•to the wator works by-law, it is
quito certain that there is practically
no honest, courageous, or reasonable
opposition—no opposition that dare
assort itself, or attempt to show
cause  for its existonce, beyond in
* dulging in street corner talk.
Against such opposition tho by-law
has nothing to fear—if tho patriotic
ratepayers, thoso who havo tho city's
interests really nt heart, will not
neglect the very important duty of
exercising thoir function of tlio bnl-
lot. Tlinse who desiro tho city's
welfare, who wish to sfio the town
progress, have tho power to realize
their own wishes to n largo extent.
Let oach ratepayer look upon tho
casting of his voto as a sacred privilege and responsibility, which it is,
and go to tho polls to-morrow ns
religiously as if the entire result depended on himself, and the rosult
may be confidently predicted••
The larger question of tbo water
works lias apparently engrossed
public attention to tho oxclusion of
any particular discussion of the
streets and park debenture by-law,
This measure, however, although
somewhat thrown in the shade by
the moro nbsorbing issue, iB far too
important to be treated lightly or
allowed to go by default. Worka
. and improvement'' of the utmost
importance, some of which have long
beon wanting, are dependent upon
tho  ratification of  tlio streets and
• pnrk debenture by-law, by the rate-
payers to-morrow,for their execution.
Whether wo look at the improvements contemplated in tho by-law
apart or ns a whole, the measure
commends itself strongly to the
practical approval and sanction of
tho ratepayers. In the matter of
the park improvements, it would bo
a serious stultification of ourselves
to cut tho work oil whero it stands
at present for this season, and that
is what tho defeat of the by-law, or
that portion of it
There   i3   an important feature
with regard to the passage of loth
by-laws which', the schomes themselves   being  intrinsically  worthy,
constitutes   a perfectly legitimate
supplementary   argument,   if   nny
woro needed, why our citizens should
give  these   measures their hearty
support.    If the by-laws carry, of
which   thero   can be no reasonable
doubt, not  only will  several very
important   and urgent city works
and improvements  bo inaugurated
and pushed to an early completion,
conferring all tho benefits that have
beon enumerated in former articles,
but   tho   very considerable sum of
$2S5,000, in   addition to all other
public   and    private  expenditures,
will be laid out, principally in this
city, within the noxt twelve mouths.
Hardly a tradesman or mechanic in
the city, it is safe to say, but will
reap, directly or indirectly, appreci
able benefit from this expenditure,
apart from the general benefits conferred by   the   completion   of   the
worksand improvements in question.
The increased impetus to trade ns it
result of this expenditure is bound
to  be   considerable.     Real   estate
should gain in solid values at least
25 per cent, from the assurance of
having theso valuable civic  works
and improvements carried out.   Pri
vate enterprise will bo stimulated,
and the general hopeful outlook will
attract desirablo immigration to the
city, and by tho time tho works are
completed We  shall   find ourselves
borne forward on the wave of prosperity many   degrees   beyond   out-
present status as a city, and nearer
our assured and glorious destiny ns
tho   premier city of   tho province.
One of the speakers at the meeting
lust    night    made    a   very  truo
remark,    and    ono     worthy     of
repetition, when he said that the
adoption     nnd   carrying    out    of
the  water   works   scheme   would
prov an effective advertisement for
the city abroad.   There ean be no
doubt of it.    With the   completion
of these water works the royal city
will stand peerless among cities tho
world over for a pure, crystuline, and
exhaustless   water  supply.    Now
Westminster is no   ordinary   city.
It has a history,   of   which  it  is
proud, and a future, of   which  it
shall be far prouder.   Give us necessary street improvements, a park,
with athletic and pleasure grounds,
and exposition buildings, and water
works—with such water ns wo aro
getting—and proper sewerage to follow—and   the  royal city, by tho
banks of the noble Fraser,  will bo
well on to tho   realization   of  her
exalted destiny as a placo of habitation to be desired above all others
—a joy for the whole earth.   Vote
for the by-laws to-morrow.

Last Tuesday morning Edward Adair
und John Sixsmith, whilo camped on
tho bunks of the Columbia ut a point
about 8 miles below tho mouth of tlio
Beaver, aaw tho body of a man float
past them. Owing to the rapidnesa of
tho current, they could not make a
succosBful effort to bring tho bndy
ashoro. It appeared to be that of a
man short in stature, who wore the
rough clothing of a laborer, ub the shirt
waa of dark bluo color. It was probably the body of Burton Mann, recently drowned in tho Kicking Horse
near Leauchoil.
Edward Adair, foreman for Dan
Robinson, is back from a cruising trip
down the Columbia as far Surprise
rapids, somo 35 miles below Donald.
Ho reports soring nplondid timber,
somo of tho whito pines being (10
inches through, and from which 5 to 0
logs could bo cut freo from knots.
Thore are also Douglas lira in that locality that moasuro fully 10 feet in
diameter. On the trip Mr. Adair killed 4 bears.
The Columbia River Lumber Company has buah-foreinan Moore looking

PURE COLD WATER
Is Wanted by the People of the
Royal City and Nothing Else.
A Rousing1 Meeting;  at Which all
the Stumbling; Blocks are
Explained Away.
And the People Unanimously Adopt
the Proposed Water Works
Scheme.
The public mooting callod for last
night to discuss tho water works question took placo aa advertised, with tho
difference that tho hour at which it
was announced to commence, 8 o'clock,
waa prolonged to 8:30 o'clock. At a
quarter paat 8 only 30 porsons wero in
the hall, and it scorned as if the meet*
ing was going to prove a fizzle, but
towards the half hour the ratepayers
dropped in more freely and soon tho
hall waa comfortably filled, and by the
timo the meeting opened 250 persons
wero present.
Mayor Hendry was unanimously
eleoted to tho chair aud called the
meeting to order. Aftor explaining
tho object of the meeting he invited
free discussion without personalities.
Col, McOregor waa appointed eco-
retary.-
Mr. Curtis aaked tho promoters of
the meeting to explain why they called
it.
Mr. Wintemute Baid tho principal
reason for objecting to tho water workB
by-law wus that it had been mid tho
charter was coating too much} it might
not bo uny good when it was acquired,
uud it would run out next March, So
it was said.
Aid. Scoullar, chairman of the water
committee, Baid he waa certain no ratepayer in the nunionce objected to, or
waa against, a water supply. Water
waa required as a guard against Arc.
If Seattle hnd had a good water supply
the city would havo been saved. The
condition of lho city in regard to wells
and tanks is very bad, Tho rapid
growth of the city has naturally produced additional sewage, and consequently the water in theso receptacles
must becomo polluted. It waa understood when the new council came in
that water works would be built. Tho
board had ever since been working on
tho scheme, and the present ono was
considered the most feasible and had
been adopted. Tho council considered
it best to acquire tho water works and
run them to the profit of tho oity. Tlio
committee waited on tho Coquitlam
Water Works Co. and offered §20,000
for tho charter. At tho end of a week
no answer being received tho committeo told tho company that if tho oiler
was not accepted the city would put in
pumping works and pump from tho
Frasor. Tho odor was thou accepted.
In regard to tho oharter lapsing, it
would only lapse in the matter of
acquiring hind for tho right of way,
and that land had already been acquired.
Mr. Sweeney, of tho Bank of Montreal, had stated that the purchase of
the charter waa very cheap, Aid.
Scoullar produced the report of Mr.
Bolt, 0. E., furnished for tlm Rank of
Montreal, which estimated thu total
coBt of tho works, allowing §15,000 for
the company, at §105,000. Ho felt
certain that lho income from tho works
would bo so great that the ratepayers
would not be called on to pay one
cent towards the interest. The size
of tho main would bo 14 inches. It
had beon stated that ho (Aid. Scoullar)
was iutcicstcd in tho company, such
was not* tho ease, (Applause). The
couucil Imd done ils duty and it remained with tho voters to either support the project or rojoct it. ;(Ap*
plnuso).
Mr. Handcock asked if it was trus
that tho company had offered to Bell
some months ago for §11,000.
Aid. Scoullar: Thero wub a schemo
to sell out, with a certain interest in
tho new company, for §13,500. This
left the company with an intorest in
the new company; but undor tho present bargain the company resigns all
rights, title and interest.   (Applause).
Mr. Handcock hero asked a number
of ridiculous questions which the audience would not listen to, and finally
cried him down.
At thia point Mr. J. E Lord stopped up tu tho railing and asked if Aid.
Scoullar had said tho exclusive rights
of tho company had been purchased.
Aid. Scoullar replied that he hud
referred only to tho WestmiiiBtor
rights.
Mr. Lord said §100,000 should be
borrowed.
Miiyur Hendry culled upon Mr.
Lord to explain by whut wonderful
reasoning he had como to that conclusion. He felt certain tho people
wero anxious to see whero the Benso of
such a proceeding would come in,
(Applause).
Mr. Lord declined to givo his reasons.
Mr. ■). 0. Brown said that after tho
clear statement mndo by Aid. Scoullar,
ho saw no uso for further argument
and took pleusuro in moving tlio following resolution :
Resolved, that this meeting ufter
Hearing tho explanations of tho chairman of the water works committee, ox-
presses completo confidence in the proposed water scheme; and tho ratepayers present pledge themselves to vote
fur, nnd heartily support, the water
works by-law nt the pells ou Thursday.
Continuing, Mr. Brown said : "Do
we need water and can we pay for it 7
these are tho leading questions, and
tho answer to thom is 'yes' 1 This
community is suffering for want of
good water, Look at tho difference in
tho death rate now and 20 yeats ago,
nnd thon ask yourselves ldo wo want
water' 'I Then what about insurance
rates? Why tho reduction in these alone
will almost pay tho water tax. I Bgreo
with Aid. Scoullar that the city, has a
dead bargain iu lho purchase of this
charter. I have been to Coquitlam
lake and know what it is. The water
is beautiful, cold and clear as crystal,
and no mattor to what vast limits the
city grows the water of Coquitlam lako
will always remain puro. This town
will make a very great mistake if it refuses to adopt tho present scheme.
(GreatupplauBo.)
Mr. J. S. Cluto heartily endorsed
the resolution and took pleasure in
socouding it. Ho wub ono of the oldest inhabitants of Westminster and
knew tho valuo of a puro supply of
water. If some of those persons who
are bo fond of crying down schemes for
tho benefit of tho community would
take n four round the oity and visit
somoofthrso places whore the sowor-
age wan simply frightful thoy would
aoon como to the conclusion that tho
sooner water wsb in tiio bettor, even
if it cost twice as muoh. "It is absolutely necusasry," said Mr. Cluto,
"lhat we have Wrtlef works. The bargain J consider an excellent one, and
Children Cryfor Pltcher'sCastorla
the price to bo paid very low indeed.
I have had occaaion to look into the
plans and affairs of tho Coquitlam
water works company, and I assure you
that after the expenses the company
has been put to have been deducted
from the §20,000 there will be very
littlo in it for the original owners of
the charter,   (('rent applause.)
Mr. Dockrill asked if more than ono
pipe could be laid down on the right of
way, to which Aid. Scoullar replied
that a dozen could bo laid down if
necessary.
Aid. Curtia wns culled on and Baid :
Ab a member of the water works com
mil toe I consider it my duty to explain
the scheme na fully as possible. In
the first pluce I nm surprised at Mr.
Lord having the courage to put up hia
opinion ub supeiior to such men as Mr,
Boll O. E. Mr. Lord got excited and
rushed into print. Perhaps he thought
wo wero going to have too much wator.
If Mr. Lord wns a wise man he would
let hia pen rest quietly especially ou
subjects which ho knows nothing
about. Tho committee appointed to
adopt a water scheme for the city had
considered several projects, but to tho
clearheadedness uf Mayor Hendry the
city is indebted for our not adopting
the fir-it scheme which looked, reasonable
but would have cost the city so much.
(Applause.) Tho mayor sont us back
to find Eomothing bolter, and in doing
so ho displayed tho best judgment
among us all. When wo adopted tho
present scheme it was accepted, and a
moro favorable one would be hard to
project." Mr. Curtis here went deeply into figures, contrasting the two
schemes aud proving most conclusively
that the one adopted was the best and
most economical for the city. Concluding Mr. CurtiB said : "Tho city
will own tho water works, and if the
income is greater than necessary tho
rates can bo reduced from time to
time. Instead of paying for water for
firo purposes, street watering and flushing sewers, it will coat us nothing.
Some peoplo have said that tha money
might bo misappropriated. Nuw for
tho benefit of these I would explain
that it ia the duty of the people, us
provided tor in the now city charter,
to olect water commissioners who will
have full control of tho works, pay-
meut ef monies etc. Whut better
guarantee is required than this. But
before a single movo in operations is
made au expert engineor will bo employed to examine into and report on
plana, etc., forthe week, (Great applause).
Mr. Handcock still hankered to havo
the cobwebs brushed off his brains ond
insisted on knowing who the members
of the Coquitlam company were, Mr.
Curtis favored him with tho names and
he sat down amidst a round of sarcastic cheers.
Mayor Hendry suid he was glad the
explanations of Aldermen Scoullar and
Curtis hud been bo well received by
the meeting, aud that thoy had given
such gcnernl satisfaction. Ho then
put the resolution of confidence, which
was carried without ono dissenting
voico.
A vote of thanks was passed to tho
chairman, mayor Hendry, and to the
secretary, Col. McGregor, und the
mooting adjourned,
Impure Water.
In an address delivered in Victoria
recently G. L. Milne, M.D.C.M., said:
Wo hear frequently of outbreaks of
disease from bad water. Cholera, typhoid fever, diphtheria nnd othor diseases are generally traced to thia cause.
Fow wolls, and vory fow indeed, contain water fit for household purposes,
nnd should be condemned, because
sewerage pecolutes through tho area
of its drainage nud becomes contaminated with organic matter. Muny a
a case of typhoid fever and diphtheria
can be traced to this cause alone. Precaution should alao be exercised in
having our city water supply as pure
as possible. Numerous epidemics
havo beon traced of typhoid fever arising from impure wider, or contaminated
wator carried from miles distant. The
relation between the distribution of
water, which contains sew enge, and lho
prevalence of typhoid fever, can easily
bo observed. Taking tho mortuary
returns of certain cities and tho condition of their water supply, complete
and trustworthy data can bo obi timed
on this point for many years back.
In the city of Brooklyn, where tho
water supply is freo from sewage,
tho death rate from typhoid is
only 15 in 100,000 of population, while in Boston, where thu
same purity is not maintained, tho
death rato ia 40 per 100,000 population. Iu Philadelphia, nlso, and other
cities iu the United States, where less
attention ib given to the purity of the
water Btipply, the death rate from typhoid fever is greatly increased. A
striking instance of this comes from
the continent of Europe. In tho city
Of Vienna, from tho year 1850 to 1874,
well water of nn impure character was
used to a large extent, in addition to
a supply from tlm Danube. During
thia period the deaths from typhoid
fevor ranged from 100 to 340 annually
in evory 100,000 population, But
sincu tho time mentioned, a supply of
pure water has been tho means uf reducing the death rato tu as low as 11
pur 100,000. In the facool such testimony wo cannot but admit that tho
increase death rutcof typhoid fever ia
governed lurgoly by the supply of
water used by tho citizens.
CORRESPONDENCE.
That Theatre Llceuse.
Editor Columbian.—Kindly allow
me to reply to the oity clerk's letter, iu
your issue of Saturday last. Ilia comparison between Vancouvor nnd Westminster only exposes his ignorance of
theatrical matters. Tbo owner of an
opera house in Vancouver could afford to
nay $20 por niglit license and run his
house three nights a week aud mnke it
pay, whereas thin city ia not able to pay
the expenaoB of a compnny playing one
night per month, at the old license fee
of §5; consequently it does not require
the brains of an alderman to aee that
matters would be getting no better fast
in the future with the license fee increased to §10 per night and $20 per
year additional, which is simply prohibitive; and I don't intond to pay it, A
fiieco of sharpness was attempted this
ast year on tho opera houso by an alderman and a city employe, who, while I
was absent from tho oity, doubled the
theatrical tax, which I hod changed on
my return. I am muoh obliged to Mr.
Itobson for his insinuations that 1  havo
i*umped from the frying nan into the flro,
can assure him, mid I hope tho information will gladden his heart, that my
Vancouvor interests havo proved far
from disappointing in tho past and tho
prospects for the future are In no way
gloomy, Vancouver now supports two
opera houses, and plans havo been prepared and a site selected for a third, to
bo built by the C.P.R. I may add In
conclusion that had the license remained
ob before (85) I Bhould have kept the
opera house open, being willing to suffer
a loss for tho public benefit, and at the
samo time, as a heavy property holder
in tins city, not wishing to inform the
outside world that wo aro improving so
rapidly that tho only theatre in the city
has bad to be closed with ita epitaph
