NOTES AND COMMENTS.
London society is taking up the
phonograph. Edison's agent is overwhelmed with applications for the
use of the instrument for afternoon
and evening entertainments,
Mr. Younghusband—"What is
this meat, to-day, dear," Mrs.
Younghusband—"A saddle of mutton, love." "Ahem I I think
Bridget has made a mistake, sweet,
and given us simply the crupper and
the stirrups."
A oat owned by a farmer, who
lives-near Norwich, Conn., has developed a fancy for stealing clothespins. While tho animal is never
known to touch clothes-pins of its
owner, it brings homo all it oan find
lying round loose in the neighbors'
yards. Within the last three
months twenty-eigbt dozen have
been brought home in this way.
It is said that the paper mills
whioh supplied the London Times
are only running on two-thirds time
now, as a result of the falling off in
circulation of that paper on tho
collapse of the Farnell cases. The
Times has by this time learned tbat
there is such a thing as being too
zealous in partisanship. Zeal without knowledge is a good.deal like a
ship without a rudder.
"I nover could understand," said
old Mrs. Goodheart as she laid down
her paper after reading all account
of the last hotel lire, "how so many
peoplo are incarcerated in these
awful horiscopes. It seems such an
easy matter to get out pf a burning
hotel, why it's very simple to just
olimb down ono of. them hand
grenades that they hats' on all the
hotels nowadays. Thsjije's no excuse
for getting oreated alista' if you keep
your wits about you.'*f
Tlio Alaska seals have paid Uncle
Sam for Alaska, which cost him $7,-
000,000. Since 1870 the Alaska
Commercial Oompany has paid the
government §5,697,100 for seals
killed. Tho customs duties from
Alaska sealskins dressed in Europe
havo yielded in round numbers
about 84,000,000. By tho new
contraot with the company the
United States is to receive $50,000
per annum for two years and $3.50
per head for each seal taken, the
animal catch to be limited to 100,-
000 seals.      _____
There is one sure mark of the
coming millionaire; his revenues
always exceed his expenditures. He
begins to save as soon as ho begins
to cam. Capitalists trust the saving
young man. Thero aro three dangers in your path. The first is the
drinking of liquor, the second is
speculation, and the third is
indorsing. And hero is the prime
condition of success, tho great secret;
concentrate your energy, thought
and capital exclusively upon the
business in which you are engaged.
Having begun in ono lino resolve to
tight it out on that line; havo the
best machinery and know tbo most
about it. Finally, do not be impatient, for, as Emerson says : "No
man can cheat you of ultimate success but yourself."—Carnegie, in
Youth's Companion.
Tho snail, it appears, must be
included in the classification "live
stock." French farmers, wearied
of the small profits derived from
grain and sheep, are turning their
attention to snails, and in Dijon
some of them are making fifteen
hundred dollars a year from the new
species of stock, which is regarded
as a choice dolioacy for the table.
'Nor in France alone in prizing the
snail. At Ulm, in Wurtemburg,
two million snails aro annually
placed on the market. As tomato
and cabbage plantations suffer
greatly from the depredations of the
snail, it must bo a consolation to
the grower to think thatthe depredator can bo made to pay the whole
cost of his feeding and yield a good
profit besides. But it will be long
before the new farm animal attains
a placo in Canada sufficient to warrant an English snail herd book and
tho other appurtenances of thoroughbred stock, or to receive attention
in the prize lists at our agricultural
fairs. So much doos prejudice
stand in tho way of developing
sources of natural woalth.
A workingman in Albany, N. Y.,
who was complaining of hard times
recently, was askod how he could
nll'ord to take a daily newspaper.
1 'Well," said he, "I hope I shall nevor
bo too poor to take a paper. I thought
I was too poor for ton years after
I wns married. My wife suggested
that. I take a paper regularly, and I
did so, nnd it was the most economical stroke of my lifo. It kept
me home overlings, afforded me
pleasure and instruction, and was a
comfort to tho wholo family. I
had to stop the use of tobacco for a
wholo year onco in order to pay for
the paper, and the result was that
I have not cared for tobacco since,
and in that ono item I have saved
enough to pay for several daily
papers. So long as I have money
enough to buy bread with I will have
enough to pay for my newspaper.
There is not a man too poor to read
a daily paper, It is the cheapest
investment he can make, both for
himself and his family. It is the
lost expense I will lop of). I will
drink my tea and coffee without
sugar before I misa my daily paper,
and I can better afford to do so."

Washington, March 22.—The secretary of the navy has issued Bailing
orders tu the U.S. str. Thetis, at Mare
Island navy yard, to proceed ta Sitka,
Alaska, touching en route at various
places, as the commandin-- officer may
deem necessary. On arriving ab Sitka
and ooinmunioatin-*; with tho civil
authorities there and finding affairs
quiet or that her presence in the
vicinity is not required, she is to continue northward and devote her
attention particularly to the whaling
fleet and to other commercial interests
of the United States in the waters
about Behring'i Strait and the Arctic
Ocean. As whaling vessels usually
leave the Arctic in the latter part of
September, the presence of the Thetis
until then will add security to those
engaged in that industry, and the
Thetis is to remain until all have taken
thoir departure southward, taking care,
however, not to be caught in the ice.
She will then return to Silica nnd
await further instructions.

Washinoton, March 22.-It is
learned to-day that Watson O. Squire
wns to havo beon appointed govornor
of Washington. A few days ago it
was suddenly announced, however,
that he was a candidate for the senator-
ship when Washington territory should
bo admitted as a state. This was impressed upon the president and he
asked E_*Governor Squire to call upon
him. Yesterday he did so and the
president told him that he had heard
he was to be a candidate for senator.
Ho said| ilMhiit was the case he could
not appear to be takiug part in a senatorial contest by placing him in the
gubernatorial chair as a stopping stone
to the higher honor. Mr. Squire
thunked tho president for his frankness, and said that he was a candidate
for senator, aad' could, he believed,
obtain the place without the governorship. While he would have liked the
appointment, under the circumstances
he declined to be further considered
ns a candidate,

Holbrook, A, J., March 21.—As
the eut bound passenger train of the
Atlantic & Pacific railway reached
Canyon Diablo last night it was linked

THE CHIN KIANO RIOTS,
Washington, March 21.—The secretary of state has received additional
particulars concerning the riot at Chin
Kiang, China, on February 5th, from
A. C. Jones, the United States consul
at that place. The not grew out of the
stoning of a policeman in the British
quarter by a crowd of boys and young
men. The quarrel of the boys was
taken up by the men, and one of the
Chineso was thrown down and injured
by a policeman. It was reported that
the man was killed, and the mob, inflamed by this information, attacked
and burned the police station and
quarters. Tho resident consuls had
asked the Chinese officials for aid to
suppress tho trouble, and half a dozen
men and a few native policemen were
sent, but the mob pnt those to flight.
A demand was made for troops but
before they came several buildings
were burned. The American and
British consulates join each other, and
juat outside the British quarters a mob
of 20,000 yelling men and boys surrounded these buildings and were preparing to break open tho gates when
300 soldiers arrived. The commanding officer attempted to address the
mob, but hia voice was drowned by
the yells and in the presence of the
troops an assault was made on the
gates, and Consul Jones, with his wife
and children, rushed over to theBritiiah
consulate. The British consul, with
his wife and two children, left the
house with Mr. Jones and family and
climbed a precipitous bluff at tho rear
of the consulate; as they were doing
this, the British consulate was set on
fire. Quickly going to the river, they
hailed a mail steamer anil were taken
on board. As they were embarking
the mob saw the party and attempted
to board the steamer, but were unable
to do so. The American consulate
was set on fire and looted, but not
burned. The American Methodist
chapel was looted. The mail vessel

A nelp to amngglcri.
Collector uf Customs Abraham, of
Portland, has received a circular from
Assistant Secretary Maynard whioh
stales that "As it appears that the
stamps placed upon imported opium
and on opium manufactured in the
United States afford little or no protection to the interests of the rovenue,
but furnish au opportunity to smugglers and others to defraud said revenue, it is hereby directed that the
use of said stamps be discontinued;
and that prepared opium shall ba delivered to parties after payment of the
duties thereon without any such stamp
being affixed to the packages." The
stamps on hand are ordered returned
to the department. Referring to the
abovo order the Oregonian says: "This
is a singular move, to say tho least.
Tho prohibitive duty of 910 per pound
on opium has caused so muoh of it to
be smuggled into this country that it
sells at auction for less than the duty,
although it costs in Victoria $li.50 to
97.50, por pound. The dispensing
with stamps will render the capture
of smuggled opium or the conviction
of smugglers practically impossible, ns
there, will be no way of distinguishing
smuggled opium from domestic."

SMALLEYS   CABLE.
London, March 22.—Lord Salisbury's speeoh at Watford bas irritated
his opponents even more than usual.
"It has sealed the fate of this ministry," cries the Daily News in its most
spasmodic way, aa according to the
same authority Kerrington last week
gave the ministry its deathblow. It can
hardly matter whether its fate be soal-
ed. or unsealed. Our Gladstonian
friends would be less amusing if they
had more sense of humor. Lord Salisbury tells his opponents they will
get no dissolution unless they can voto
the ministry out in the houao of commons. He hints that all the letters
may not he forged and he laughs at
Mr. O'Brien's "tragic nudity." Thia
phase has driven the Gladstonian organ
wild, and it declares Lord Salisbury
ought to be hooted out of decent society.
CHAMBERLAIN TO THB RESCUE.
Mr. Chamberlain is out with a fresh,
home rule manifesto, which is interesting, and, perhaps important and certainly it would bo important had not
so may others lately babbled out from
the same source. Nobody keeps his
hands more constantly on the public
pulse. It therefore means something
when he announces solemnly that in
his opinion the time has come for the
government to propose some scheme for
Ireland as a substitute for Mr. Gladstone's. He indicates what that scheme
should be and it is not new. First
the land question should be settled by
turning all tenants, or a majority of
them, into owners. Then all parties
might agree on a large and liberal
measure of local government The -
Irish have scouted this suggestion before, and may scout it again; butl
imagine Mr. Chamberlain chooses this
moment to bring it forward at once,
because ho Is, himself, impressed by
Mr. Parnell's moderation of tone and
apparent readiness to accept a settlement on terms much less than Mr.
Gladstone offered. Looked at politically, it seems remarkably like an effort
to force the hand of the ministry at a
moment when they are beset with difficulties.
BASEBALL.
The American baseball teams are
starring through the provinces, and
provincial papers roport their proceedings at some length, London papers
allow them but a few lines in obscure

but is not for one moment comparable
to crickot If tho authorities hesitated
to sny this at first, it was from pure
courtesy.

I rlday I'vcnlng, March 22, 1999.
Tho ■jloar, concise, und   businesslike  budget speooh of Hon. G. II.
Turner,    provincial     minister    of
liimuco, delivered on Tuesday afternoon, must i-ei'tumly bo admitted, in
common faii-nea-i, to  make n. good
uhowinEj for the firiaiioitvl condition
of the provinco, its sloiuiy and satisfactory progress, and promising out
look.   Tho exigencies of party gov-
eminent   produce   a class in overy
country   called    tho   "opposition,"
whioh is very useful lo the utate in
that, while its principle motive is to
got the "innings" with the least delay, in the prosecution and furtherance   of   that  laudable object, the
government   for the time being is
subjected   to tho severest scrutiny
and criticism, and any false step,
premeditated or accidental, and any
mistaken policy, are quickly pounced
upon, dragged to the light, and dissected, by the iirgus-eyed and loyal
"opposition," which thus fulfils the
very important function of watchdog for tho state.   Tho only drawback to this system is that tho opposition, in an excess of zeal, usually
exaggerates  everything derogatory
to the party in power and throws a
very   heavy   veil—almost   a   wet
blanket, so to speak—over its virtues—if it has any, which is sometimes tho case.   The party organs
on   cither   side  generally "stretch
things   a  little" according to their
particular bias, and in such cases it
is the independent press alone that
can  afford, apparently, or, at any
rate, that may lie expected, to give
an impartial opinion or stato matters
fairly.   As Tins Columbian claims
to be. nnd is, independent in politics,
we may be allowed to state, as wo
have above, that the budget speech
. of the finance minister makes a good
showing for the financial condition
of tho province, even if that statement does, unavoidably, rellect credit
upon the government,   Indeed the
fact does   not   require to be stated,
for an examination nf the finance
minister's figures and comparisons
themselves, by any one, will lead to
a satisfactory conclusion its   to   the
provincial finances and prospects as
a whole, any interested pessimistic
ravings or affectation of   sophistry
to the contrary notwithstanding. The
revenue for the year beginning with
July   next   the   finance    minister
niodorutely estimates at §690,491,
or a round 8700,000 this being an
increase of 808,000 over   tho  estimated revenue for tho present year.
Parenthetically it is stated that the
aotual revenue for tho present year
will exceed the estimated figures by
880,000.    The estimated increase of
revenue for tho next fiscal year is
bused not upon an increase in taxation, but upon the increased prosperity, business, and growth of tho
province.    The expenditure for next
year is   figured  at   $804,351,   an
increase over that of   the  present
-year of §74,595,  of  which  public
works will get $30,000,   education
81-S,G15, administration of justice
80,000, and civil  government   salaries and administration of justice
salaries,   arising  principally   from
increased pnblic business,  $10,400.
The total amount   proposed   to   be
spent on, public   works   next   year
(additions, repairs, and now  works)
is §277,000; on   education,   8130,-
250, which is of course, exclusive of |
the cost of  new   school   buildings.
For   these   two  important   items,
public works and education, the government has   evidently   made   the
best provision with the resources at
hand.    The comparative statement
made by the finance   minister,  embracing the   years   1881   to   1880
inclusive, and giving   tho   revenue
for each year, with tho cost of civil
government and revenue service corresponding, shows not only a gratifying increaso of provincial   revenue
since 1881 of nearly §300,000; but
an equally satisfactory decreaeo in
the proportionate cost of civil government and   revenue  service,   of
Hi-per cent, of revenue raised in
the province, exclusive of Dominion
grants and subsides, in 1889, to 20
per cent, of the strictly provincial
revenue in 1881,   The finance milliliter declares that he will begin the
financial year, on July 1st next, with
$263,000; the estimated revenue for
the year  added,  about  §700,000,
gives S9G3,000, as against tho estimated expenditure, 8864,000, which
leaves nearly $100,000 Lo the good
of the province on July 1st, 1890,
again, with a good prospect of this
being   ngumonted  by   the  normal
increaso of revenue with tho growth
of the province.   In   1891,   as is
pointed out, the  decennial  census
takes place, and the Dominion per
capita subsidy to the province will
be increased by at least §50,000,
and the total revenue, according to
Mr. Turner's estimate, which is not
extravagant,  raised  to   $950,000.
The estimated uggregato increase of
$50,000 on the wer capita subsidy is
amply  justified.   The  subsidy   is
an annual grant to the provinces by
the Dominion of eighty  cents  per
head, aod is paid to this province at
present on a basis df 60,000 population, amounting to an annual subsidy of $48,000.   4- population of
120,000 would raise this subsidy to
£100,000, and our population,
which is estimated now at about
100,000, will be fully 125,000, and
probably much more, by 1891.
Referring to the public debt
of tho province, which is placed
at $1,416,000, tho finance minister shows that the per capita
debt is but §15, and comparisons
are drawn between tho public debt
of British Oolumbia and thoso of
several of tho Australian colonies,
all very much in favor of this province. For instance Victoria, Australia, is shown to havo a per capita
publio debt of 8150 as against British Columbia's 815; West Australia,
8160; New Zealand, 8240; and
Queensland, 8360. The comparison
might be carried further, and would
bo found still very considerably in
favor of this province. A significant
fact in connection with the budget
speech is that tlie opposition, by
their utterances as well as their
sileuco, practicallly acknowledged
tho sound and sptisfactory financial
condition of the province as exhibited in tho finance minister's clear and
business liko statement. The government and the country aro alike
to be congratulated.
The plan to establish a permanent
exposition at Washington in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the discovery of Ami-rid is
meeting with much favor among the
peoplo of the oust, says America. It
is proposed that the free countries
of both western continents join in
this great enterprise. Spain is pro
paring for a celebration in connection with her American provinces to
commemorate tho voyage of Columbus, which gave a new world to
Leon and Castile; but the United
States, it is pointed out, in connection with Conada, Brazil, Mexico,
Chili, Venezuela, Peru, and other
nations, during the next threo yeara
could organize a far greater exposition, which would win tbe admiration of the world for generations to
como. An international enterprise
of this sort would bring the people
of the western world closer together,
and would greatly strengthen their
trade relations. The discovery mado
by Columbus is tho one great event
which interests all American nations
alike, and all should be equally desirous of commemorating in an imposing manner the 400th anniversary of bis voyage. The niatter is
worthy of attention, 'America suggests, at the conference of tepreson-
tatives of tlie United States and of
tho Soutli American states, to be held
in Washington in May next. A new
world's exposition must certainly
appeal very forcibly to the imagination, ambition, and innate lovo of
display of all classes and nationalities on this western hemisphere, and
no more appropriate date could be
named than the anniversary, be it
the 400th, of the immortal Christopher, who, it is set down, did, on
October 12tb, 1492, ground tho keel
of his adventurous craft on the
golden sands of a new world, whose
existenco his faith had conceived
and his rare courage had brought to
light. Tho exposition, in all its
glory, is a modern institution, and
withal a useful and commendable
one, and an exposition of all the
Americas in 1892 is an event worth
looking forward to and helping to
further.

In every eity there are individual
examples of mon whose connections
with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in all matters of public
enterprise, whose record for imilinch-
ing integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, make them
objects of special note, not alone in
their homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation is recognized
and rospectcd, such a man have we
in tho subject of this skelyh, Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1862 and
has, through all the vicissitudes of
twenty seven years' trade, maintained the even tenor of his way.
His transactions havo increased
year by year, and tlio circle of his
customors and patrons gradually
widening and his iirui extending until he now controls a business un
excelled by any similar establishment in .British Columbia. His
buildings aro large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. All this space is tilled
with a complete and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockery ware, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, houso furnishings,
iron pipe and fittings. This house
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds and docs overy variety of
shocL-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, roofing, etc. There is no
house in tlio trade which carries a
more complete stock or whose facilities surpass those of this establishment for supplying the trade with
first-class goods at lowest quotations.
The length of time this gentleman
has been in business and the success he has attained ure better
recommendations than the loudest
praise we could possibly give. We
may mention, however, to our readers who havo not yet become acquainted with this linn, that none
in Lhe Northwest has a hotter reputation for fair and honorable dealing.

currod boforo it could ho recovered. When
it was found and placed in Mr. Rouso'b
hand tlio hand was powerless to use it,
"The bravo old prince was dead.
" ln his will ho had bequeathed the Bum
of $100,000 to tho poor fund of Warron
County. Ho had also left tlOO each to tho
men who had preserved him from being
cremated alive.
"Tho will being without hifl signature
was, of course, legally inoperative and bis
heirs did not think it incumbent upon thom
to carry out his wishes, although thoy wero
expressed under such extraordinary circumstances.
"Tlio county lost its legacy, which was
not so much to bo wondered at, as tho sum
was very large, but tho non-payment of tho
two $100 bequosts to tho men who, at tho
rlBlE of their own lives, had saved the unfortunate oil speculator to his family, at
least for Christian burial, was long a mat-
tor of much comment in tho oil regions."
DIAMOND  THIEVING.
How tho Zulus Have linen Corrupted by
Unprincipled White-..
Diamonds, as most people will be aware,
aro sorted out of the diamondiforous stuff
by native " hands."  Somo of theso, says
tho tiatttrday Review, aro probably in tho
pay of tho fraternity, or, to be more uccu
rate, are humble momfiors of it.  A line
stone is turned up by ono of them whon
nobody is looking.   Ho seizes it, hides it in
his hair, In his mouth, or in some other
portion of his person.   Or if a goat lie
handy, ho twists it in bis wool ami tends
the animal affectionately till an opportunity occurs of redeeming tho stono.   Or
perchance ho conceals it behind a rock, or
forces it. down the throat of n dog, or Homeric device, ho swallows it himself.   Tho
gem being restored to tho light of day from
Hs  hiding-place, whatever it may havo
been-and many a diamond now sparkling
on a lady's neck has made acquaintance
with tho stomach of a Kafir—tho dusky
tluefin duo courso puts himself in communication with another native of a superior
clnsa. This man Ib a tout in the pay ot a
low white man; a ''Mean White,", us ho is
called in the colonies.   The tout buys the
Btono for, let us say, a hundredth part of
Its valuo, and tho thief spends tlio money
ontho vilo drink which itls the peculiar
pride of civilization to supply to tho unsophisticated savago, and, so far aa ho is
concerned, thore is an end of tho transaction. Then tho tout   carries    tlio stoue
to tho  Mean Whito,   and   receives from
him a sum of money,  perhaps  double
what ho   has   given   to   tho   notual
thief.  The Mean Whito in his turn takes
it lo  the licensed buyer of diamond1.,
who is possibly a person of glaring and
evon  aggrossivo respectability-n church
warden or member of tho municipality, or
at tho least a merchant of good antecedents
—and from him receives, perhaps, a tenth
part of tho worth of the gem.   Bo fur so
good; but still there aro slipa between tho
cup nnd the lip, and it is sometimes found
difficult to convey tho stuff out of tho country to tho final rocoivcr in London.  To this
end many artifices nro resorted to.   Wo
havo heard of innocent-looking fowling-
pieces, which, on examination, have been
found to bo loaded with diamonds to within
an inch of the muzzle, whilo such repositories as novels with holes cut in tho leaves,
tho quills   of ostrich foathoi-s, nnd boots
with hollow heels,   are not   uncommon.
Often tho fair sex aro found to bo useful
auxiliaries in theso adventures, for there is
a peculiar sacrodnoss about a lady's underclothing that appeals to the mind of tho customs officer. The man would be bold who
merely ventured on her back hair. Howover this may be, by far tho greater number of stones so procured arrive safo)y in
Europe, Most peoplo will naturally think
that tho natlvo rascal who takes tho stone
is responsible for this stato of things, but it
is not tho case. Tho native, as is well
known, mid as Dr. Matthews Is careful to
explain, never dreamed of stealing diamonds
until ho was taught to thieve by tho whito
receiver of stolon goods, and after Ids simple
virtuo had been debauched by "Capo
smoke." Moro especially is this truo of
natives of tho Zulu race, among whom, as
they aro yet nncontamminated by civilization, honesty is not only a policy, but a unt
versal practice.
Dr. Matthows tells somo Interesting talcs
of the I. D. B. {Illicit Diamond Buyers) fraternity. In tho dead of a certain night in
tho year 18713 he was roused from sleep and
confronted by a trembling nnd middle-aged
citizen of tho Fields, who informed him that
ho had swallowod a thirty-carat diamond
and two sovereigns — just to show Ids
friends how the scoundrels*did it, and was
now anxious to bo rid of thoso foreign substances, wliich hnd presumable ocgun to
disagree. Ultimately .thoy were recovered,
and tho happy citizen departed with tho diamond, leaving tho gold in priyttont. Of
courso, this man had disposed of tho diamond undor imminent fear of detection;
but why ho took tho two sovoroigns, not
knowing wo can not say—unless It was to
got his hand in. Somo peoplo, by the way,
appear te be able to swallow very largo
stones, for so latoly as last yoar n native
dying undor suspicious circumstances, his
body waa opened, and a sixty-carat stone
found in his stomach. Hore Is another tale.
A whito gontleniau lived with a pretty
Fingo woman, who also acted as his agent
In the "trado." Ho fell ill of feveis
and for weeks lay in a stato of delirium, botween lifo and death. Sho nursed
him tenderly through it all, and, what is
more, kept up his connection with the
"boys;" ao that, when became tonhiinself,
he was enabled to present bim with bun
dreds of carats of flno stones. And now
mark tho sequel! No soonor was ho strong
enough than ho departed to Europe, taking
ovory gem and farthing that sho hnd collected with him, and Icavingtho unfortunate
girl to starve on tho streets. On n certain
occasion Dr, Matthews was called In to nt-
.oud a dying digger who had once worked n
claim for him. These woro tho words that
"■reeled him when ho told the mnn thoro was
no hopo:'! I Bha'n't, I cau't, I won't dlo without tolling you how when I worked your
and Mr. Lynoh's claim in No. fi I robbed you
W nearly all your diamonds."
In the face of storfoo such as thoso and of
i mass of other evidence, it is sometimes
llfflcult not to believe that civiUzation is a
'allure, and that tbo educated Christian
mn, except under vory exceptional oircum-
tauces, and whon restrained by the strict-
jst pressure of tho law, is a lower animal
; t hoart than tho savage ho despises and do*
itroys with drink and riflo bullets.

SPIRIT guidance:
Conspicuous Instances of Men Believing
Thoy I'rofltcd by It,
Oiio of tho curious facts of Now York
business lifo is that many persons are
governed in their commercial ventures by
thoadvicoof tho "spirits," Bays tbo Savannah New. Ouo of the most talented
meuof tho Cotton Exchange used to say:
I'm going to buy cotton. The spirits toll
me it is going up;" or, "I'm going short;
I had a communication from tho spirits last
night to tho effect that the tmarkot is goiug
down." Ho failed onco or twice, but finally
ibe apirits scemod to glvo tbo right "tip,"
and now ho is rich. In tho summer I see
him at Saratoga; bo stops nt ouo of tho
best hotels, drives a fino equipage out to tho
lake ovory pleasant aftornoon, and his win-
tor life in Now York la id tho midst of luxurious and cultured surroundings. He has
a fino hoad, n broad brow, ia tho author of a
valuable book, tho materials for which cost
him Sf-OOO to collect, and ho is woll versed
in litcraturo and science. No ono is moro
deeply read in tho works of Herbert Spencer and others of tho modern school of
philosophers; no ono is moro acute aa a roas-
ouor on most subjects' that ongago tho reflective mind. And yot bo has been known
to mako remarks about tbo spirits and their
knowledge of tho futuro courso of the cotton market that have mado his friends stare
with mingled omasemont and regret. Such
men of standing and undoubted intelligence
on most subjects are invaluable to tho spiritualistic sharpers.
Thero was a orank broker on tho old Naval Stores Exchange who, whon the transactions in rosin and spirits of turpentine
lagged ou a dull day, would mesmerize tho
brokers. Tboy would stretch out stiff as
boards in mock obedicuco to bis wonderful
powers, and othors would supplicate tho
mcsincrizcr in tones of mock agony not to
barm tho "subject." Iu gracious ncqulea-
cenco to their pleadings ho would givo a
lordly snap of his fingers, and the subject
would come out of his so-called trance and
weakly oxpross a dcslro to havo tho mos-
mcrizer "stand" a bottlo of wine at Del-
monico's as a slight return for having submitted himself to tils dreaded powers.
Commodoro Vanderbllt waa tho dupe of
fortuno tellers and spiritualists, though any
ono else would havo lound it difficult to
swindle him. Ho was a coarsc-mindod man,
with no education oxcept that acquired in
business lifo, which wus vory littlo,
A, T. Stewart was not tho dupe of professional swindlers, but ho indulged himself iu a few harmless suporstitiuns. For
instance, whon ho had his principal storo at
Broadway and Chambers street, a woman
kept an apple stand in front of hts plaeo,
and ho Imagined sho brought him good luok
—that sho was a "mascot," though that
term hod novor been board in this country,
and when lio started bis placo nt Broadway
and Tenth street ho insisted upou hor moving up thoro In ordor thnt His pood luck
might continue. Ho lived on Fifth avenue
two years after his marble palaco closo by
was entirely complotod, decoding to move
into lb becauso ho had a superstitious horror
of a now bouse. He lived in it only a comparatively short lime whon ho died, and to-day
no ouo knows whether hts remains aro iu
tho cyrpt of his Garden City cathedral, or
buried by tbo gravo-robbcrs bonoath a
city's rofuso.

Police Court.
At the police court this morning
Patrick Maloiiey tendered lii-t apologies to Police Magistrate Alkinson,
und the citizens in general, fur the
"bit of n row" ho created on Front
street yesterday afternoon. The
apology was accepted in tlio same
spirit as eiven, and Mr. Maloiiey was
charged $2.50 fur his night's Induing in
thocivic hotel. Thos. Walsh was upaj*tiin
on the charge of being drunk and incapable, ana he could not deny the insinuation. As he had been the worse
of licjuor for a long time and showed
no Bigns of sobering up, Mr. Atkinson
consigned him to the provincial gaol
for a period of ten days, - with the
promiso of a much longer 'sentence on
his next appearance in court.
Rushing Business.
The Bceue'in tho vicinity of the
Royal City Mills to-day was both busy
and interesting. Ovor a hundred men
and a large number of horses aud carta
were at work in the yards handling,
hauling and piling lumber. On the
slides running from the mill to the
railway track a score of men wore busy
loading flat cars with square timber.
In front of the mill a steady stream of
lumber was being sent down to tho
barque Malay where expert hands received it and stowed it securely in tho
hold, Everything iu tho vicinity of
tho miils denoted enterprise actively
nnd prosperity. The Royal City Mills
have received a large order from the
contractors of the Mission bridge, and
that, with the many large orders on
hand, will necessitate tho establish*
ment being run both night aud dny for
sometime. Commencing to-night lhe
mills will only cease work during meal
hours and on Sundays for a number of
weeks, at least, and it is quito prob-
ablo this extra work will last for several months. The sash and door department of the mills is also taxed to
Us utmost to fill orders.
A Man With a Record.
Mr, M. Morrison, of Skeena River,
is in the city taking in .the sights and
visiting his many friends. Mr. Morrison will bo connected with the
Skeena River fisheries during tliu coming season. Mr. Morrison ia a man
with a record, and a hero. Ho wns
second oflicer aboard tho Nova Scotiau
ship, County of Pietou, and in a terrible storm otf the coast of France the
vessel was driven among tho breakers.
Morrison was at thu wheel, and sea
after sea swept the decks, making it
impossible for assistance to reach him.
The captaiu colled for him to leave the
wheel and try to save himself, but tho
answer came back: "No, I will die
first!" Ko afterwards explained that
he thought it best one man should
be lost rather than the whole crew of
nineteen. Morrison's gallantry saved
the crew but the brave deod co3t him
a log. A good story is told of Morrison which is worth repeating. Shortly
after his log had been amputated ho
wns travelling with a number of old
miners and others who were fond of
telling remarkable and not over truthful Btories. Morrison had the amputated limb in his trunk, wrapped up in
one of Barnum's circus posters. The
miners one ovening indulged in recounting their wonderful experiences,
each story far outdoing its predecessor,
and each more unlikely than tho other,
Morrison kept quiet till the last man
had told his story, and then spun a
yarn, mentioning the loss of his log,
which made the chief Annanias of the
party green with envy. Of course,
everyono doubted the yarn and were
not backward in ridiculing it, where*
upon Morrison quietly opened his
trunk, took out the leg and threw it
on the table before tho frightened nud
astonished minors. Doubtful stories
wero not heard for tho remainder of
that trip.
Panning Forged Notes,
Some time ago the  police   received
notice that a gaug  of counterfeiters
were at   work  manufacturing bank
notes, and to keep  a bright  lookout
for them.   On the 14th inst,   a man
named Mike Hanley was arreated in
Vancouver for passing forged  notes,
and a search of his effects brought   to
light a complete photographing outfit
for forging bank notes.   This morning
the polios received  information  that
counterfeit notes were in circulation in
the city.   Chief Pearce wont to work
and found that  two g5 counterfeit
notes of the National Bank  of  Sault
St. Marie, Michigan, had been passed
on a man named  Garvcb Moore by
another man named Walter Moore,
both of whom wero  stopping  at  the
EickholT House.   A warrant was issued by Oapt. Pittendrigh, and in a few
minutes Walter Moore was in the lookup.   Further   investigation  revealed
the fact that Garvot Moore had offered
to compromise the matter for $100, and
on the receipt of this information he
was arretted on the charge  of aiding
and abetting a felony.   When taken
to tho lockup Walter Moore was cautioned to Bay nothing as it might be
used in evidence  against  him.   In
spite of this warning he admitted  to
passing the notes, but said ho had  received them from a man named McNeill
who was also stopping at the some hotel.
A search was immediately instituted
for McNeil, but it was found he had
flown, having crossed to Brownsville
early this morniug and made hot haste
for the American side.   The case will
be heard before tho polico magistrate
to-morrow morning.   The counterfeits
now in the possession of the  police
were made by the photographic process, and aro, of course, an oxact fac
simile of  tho genuine note.   When
fresh they are hard to detect, but exposure to the light for any length of
time causes them to fade quickly, and
then detection   is easy,   The paper
they sre printed on is regular bank
note parchment.   There are some ugly
features about this case, which, however, cannot be mentioned till  after
tho police court examination,
A Slwnsh iioniance.
Two well-known gentlemen of this
city returned from Harrison river yesterday and brought a nice little Siwash romanco with them. Both gentle*
men being of a romantic turn of mind
took a great interest in the tender affair nnd saw it through to tho benediction. A Harrison river Indian, young,
strong and manly, ns Siwashcs go, fell
most desperately and irrecoverably
in lovo with tho belle of dusky Mission
maidens. He loved her as only a full
blond Siwash can love and wib ready
and willing to fish for salmon all Bummer in her support. This he told her
in choice Chinook jargon, or words to
that effect, and expressed his intention
of investigating the marine plants at
the bottom of the river unier-s she accepted him for a husband. Agnes was
coy and a bit of a flirt, and though she
was not unwilling to encourage Pierre,
still "she was uot prepared to ro*
sign her freedom at a moments warning and without good security. Pierre
was informed that he must bring references, certificate of character, invoice of goods and chattels possessed
etc. If these were satisfactory the
careful Agnes would surrender. Pierre
returned as quickly to the reservation
us his strong arms could propel the
canoe, and immediately enlisted Harrison River Joe in his service to make
an inventory of the valuables his shanty
contained. Whilo Joo was appraising
values, Pierre hurried off to the nearest Roman Catholic Missionary who
furnished him with n letter, pointing
out tho bearer's merits and promising
n blessing on the marriage if Agnes
accepted. Thus armed, and accompanied by the ancient diplomat, Harrison
River Joe, Pierre started for the Mission again and on the road thither was
joined by the aforcaaid Weatminstrites,
who determined to assist the gallant
Siwash, Arriving at the Mission Pierre
delivered his credentials nnd awaited
results. While inspection wns going
fn, one of tho enthusiastic gentlinen,
who, by the way, is a legal light, opened fire on the heart of Agnes ou behalf
of Pierre, and pleaded hard ou his behalf us only an Irishman can plead.
Tho tender hearted Agnes could not
withstand this assault, and, after a few
minutes doubt and wavering, finally fell
into Pierre's arms and sobbed her consent. When tho first transports of joy
were over the wholo party embarked
in canoes nnd made their way to the
Mission whero tha good priest pronounced tho benediction on U)&-h_.ppy
couple. The brido was given"away by
the Westminster gentlemen, while
Harrison River Joo acted as best man.

Editok Columbian-. — I - had no
thoughts of entering into any controversy
iu the newspapers at any time, but your
article iu Friday's issue, thtj", ^th,,^.,
has made a very deep impression upon
my mind. I feel that if tho ideas you
expressed prevail it will prove exceedingly detrimental to the interests of the
city. To-day I received one of the "folders" which nave been published to furnish information to the outside world
respecting New Westminster, its present
and prospective advantages for capitalists to invest, and business men to establish various branches of industry} aud as
I read this folder I felt constrained to
raise my feeble voico against the city
committing sucli a suicidal blunder ns to
put any "stumbling-block" in the way
that would prevent the construction of
the Ross, McLaren Mills, Those mills
will be built. Where, depends upon New
Westminster. Either they will bo built
where tbo manager has planned, on the
Frasor, or near Vancouver. Let me
quote from the "tolder," which is official
and cannot be gainsaid: "The ltoyal
City Mills cut 21,000,000 feet of lumber,
besides manufacturing sush, laths, &c.
And the Brunette Sawmills cut 4,000,000
feet, together making 25,000,000 feet,
and about $20,000 per mouth paid for
wages." Now, according to the figures
of tlie "folder," the Ross, McLaren Sawmills will have an output of 300,000 ft.
por day, or about 90,000,000 ft. per year.
Consequently, if wages are paid in the
same proportion, the Rose, McLaren Co.
will havo a pay roll of about 570,000 por
month or §840,000 per year, giving employment, permanently, to over 1000
men, many of whom will be men of
families, It is not beyond the recollection of most citizens, what an event was
the arrival of the first ship to toad lumber at the R.C.P.MiUs— now much the
press and everybody lauded, and rightly
BQ-Our present mayor, for his energy and
porBcvcranco in bringing tbat ship to our
harbor. As, then, alt could forsec that
an untold benefit would accrue to tho
city, as it would very soon be known the
world over as a safe and desirable freshwater harbor, and so of great commercial advantage to the city. Let us return
to our figures, I believe that 750,000 ft.
of lumber may be considered a fair average load for ships. Many will not carry
that amount and some will exceed It.
But taking 750,000 ft. as an average
shipload it would require 120 ships to
carry tho output of the R., McL. Mills
for one year; that is a ship must arrive
in this port overy three days to take
away tho output of those mills. And as
this lumber will bo shipped to distant
ports the outfitting of those ships for a
long voyage will prove of immense advantage to tho agriculturists of the district as Well as to the traders, I have
been told by those competent to speak
authoritatively that the outfitting of each
ship will average 92,500, besides many
incidentals that would call for a-distribution of at least §3,000 for each ship, or
the 120 ships during the yoar of 9300,000.
To summarize: The construction of the
Boss, M-cLnren Mills in the vicinity of
tlie city means an increase, directly, of
3,000 inhabitants, a yearly ex |
idlture
for wage s of $840,000,' ships $360,000, or
In all of about ono and a quarter millions
of dolh-,13, besides the genoral effect upon
the prosperity of our oity. Suoh a commerce -would at onco raise our city to a
positj on of importance in the commercial
world, almost equal to tho idea that
Boni'i of our citizens have of its present
importance.
I feel confident that whon our citizens
full y realize what a boon the R., McL.
Mills will prove for New Westminster
tin -y will do all they oan to prevent their
re moval, Vanoouver understands their
v aliio and in their far-reaching spirit of

LOCAL PARLIAMENT
Victoria. March 21,—The speaker
took the ohairat 2.50 p.m. Prayers
wero said by Rev. Mr. Wad man.
Mr. Beaven presented a petition
from tho British Columbia boards of
trade protesting against tho passage of
tho divisional court act,
Tho provincial secretary presented
the annual report of the minister of
mines.
Tho petition of A. B. Ferguson and
others re mails and roads to Chilcotin
was received and ordered printed.
Tho committeo on supply was received, read and adopted.
The finance minister then moved
the house into committeo of supply.
Mr. T. Davie took occasion to refer
to the satisfaction given by the official
stenographer in the courts of justice.
He thought this explanation, due to
the house in consequence of tlie motion
brought up by the member for Comox.
The stenographer's time was fully employed, and his work gave great assistance tu the courts.
Mr. Semlin called attention to the
necessity of improving certain roads in
Yale and constructing a bridge across
the Thompson River below North
Fork River.
The chief commissioner of lands and
works said the government, in framing the estimates, had endeavored 'to
treat every district with equal fairness.
Mr. L-tdnur complained that the
government had treated New Westminster district very unfairly in 'the
estimates. He referred to a number
of roads in the district which were badly in need of repair for which no provision had been made,
Mr. Humphreys criticised at length
the financial policy of the government.
He complimented Mr. Grant upon the
able manner iu which he had replied
to the finance minister's budget speech.
Tho provincial secretary regretted
thut the honerable leader of the opposition was indisposed. Had he been
in his usual health he would certainly
have Baid something that would be
worth answering from the government
sido of the .house. Those who had
spoken from tho opposition benches
had been singularly successful in saying nothing. Tho honorable member
for Cassiar had referred in words of
strong condemnation to the differential
tax imposed on four cities of the province. Ho proposed to deal with
what the honorable member for Cassiar hnd said aa to the facts of the Caso.
Two qut of the four cities had gracefully complied, Vancouver and New
Westminster. Victoria nnd Nnnaimo
not ns yet. In Victoria in the couii-
cil it had been stnted that Victoria1
was willing to meot the entire expense
of education provided it received the
provincial rovonuo tax. He [Sroceed-
ed to quote a few ligtircH to show the
position the city would bo in if it were
taken nt ita word, It wns now asked
to contribute $5,780 towards thu maintenance uf schools in the city; its provincial revenue tax amounted tu $7,-
384, or a total of $13,104. The expenses of education, without considering the school buildings of Victoria,
amounted to $27,470 annually. What
had been asked of Victoria was just as
much aa the intereat on the value of
school buildings, about $70,000. Nanaimo was exactly a similinr case. The
remarks made by the alderman of both
cities showed how foolish it wai possible for the representatives of a municipality to sometimes talk. He was
pleased with one remark made by the
honorable member for Cassiar, who
said the credit of the provinco stands
high, while the publio debt is but (rifling. This was the sum and the substance of his speech, and a greater
compliment could hot be paid the
government. The government tiad
done more in improvement of the
country in the construction of roads
and bridges than any previous one.
He went into the financial Jshowing of.
the year, explaining and commenting
upon its very satisfactory details. Ho
was surprised to hear the hon amble
member for Yale, travelling over
every road iu his district and explaining its condition. This style of speech
although pleasant to send to constituents, wns a useless one. Becauso
the district contributed most towards the revenue'was no reason that
the district should receive the largest
portion of the expenditure. Is was
sometimes the district producing tho
least that was most worthy of the
large expenditure in order to open it
up. The true policy of expenditure
was to plaoe it where ultimately it
make the largest return.
Mr. Grant spoke on the frictions between the educational department and
the teachers. In answer to Hob, Mr.
Robaon's speech he said it was a matter of policy for the city of Vancouver
to hand over the differential tax, as it
was courting largo expenditure for
school purposes within its borders. He
reiterated the statement that tho provinco was in a first class financial condition, but hoped to see more dono in
the future than in the past to develop
the resources of the province.
Hon, Mr. Turner, replying to Mr.
Grant's criticism of the budget speech,
said the honorable member for Cassiar
had referred 'to his speech aa being
brief. As a business man he (Mr
Turner) believed in coming straight to
the point. ■ There was a great deal too
much talk in the house sometimes. He
proceedod to show that the cost of
maintaining the government was less
in proportion now tban ever beforo.
He said with the increaso of revenue
expenditure on public roads would be
proportionately increased. He thought
the expenditure now fair and equitable
and would preient a satisfactory showing.
Tho houso then went into committe
of supply, Mr. Higgins in the chair,
and passed the remainder of the
estimates. At 0 o'clock the house adjourned until Friday afternoon.
