Lord Wolsoley. in an article on
tbe battle of the future, declares that
doe remarkable change will be the
absence of nearly all terrific noise
which the discharge of fire or tix
hundred field guns and the roar of
musketry causes in all great battles.
The sound of cannon will be slight,
and will no longer indicate to distant
troops where their comrades are
engaged or the point upon whioh
they  should   consequently   inarch.
Says tho Witness: The Now
York llerald says that if Canada
cannot consent to become Uncle
Sam's wife, Bhe might at least make
ihe usual offer to be a sister to him.
That is exactly what Canada does
offer. Our relations, ahe tells him,
can never, never be conjugal, but
they oan be sweetly and profitably
reciprocal. But Uncle Sam sulks
nnd is ungallant enough to think
that if he declines the fraternal
relation she will be worried into
becoming his wife. Ho ought to be
ashamed of himself.

Imperial Borne, the oity of the
Caesars, alter a long sleep is giving
signs of activity and progress.
During the past twenty years $27,-
000,000 has been spent in improvements, the population has increased
from 244,000 to 379,000, and the
ancient city is fast giving way before
the march of modern improvements.
Eighty-two miles of new streets
have been laid out, and over 3,000
new buildings have been built The
danger is that all the old landmarks
will be ruthlessly destroyed in the
course of the modernizing tendency.
The World newspaper, of New
York, is about to rival the past
enterprise of the Herald, and proposes to send an expedition in search
of Stanley and Emin Bey. It has
engaged to lead the expedition Mr.
Thomas A. Stevens, who is now on
his way to Zanzibar, first to find the
lost explorers, and then to write the
horrors of the slave trade in the
interests of the anti-slavery crusade
so admirably begun by Cardinal
Lavi(*erio, Primate of Africa. The
undertaking will be a costly one,
but tho World will reap a harvest of
praise and fame.
Probably for the first time in the
history of Ottawa the liquor license
law was observed there on Sunday
the 13th inst., and the baok as well
as tbe front doors of bar-rooms
throughout the city were olosed,
Tliis was not the result of any
vigialnce on the part of the license
inspectors, who have never suoceeded
in causing the slightest respect to be
paid to the law, but to the voluntary
act of the hotel and saloon keepers,
sixty-eight of whom signed an
address to their patrons that in
future thuy intended to close their
bars at seven o'clock Saturday night
and keep them closed until six
o'clock on Monday morning. These
notices can be seen in almost every
bar-room in the oity and are probably without intention, a curious
reflection on the manner in which
the law has been enforced, or rather
not enforced, in that city.—Ex.
Here is an anecdote apropos of
New Year's day and its delights and
trials. A rich banker enters his
office on the last morning of tho old
yearand heaps his warmest congratulations on the head of the cashier,
who on Jan. I celebrates the
twenty-fifth anniversary of his employment by the firm. After the
banker has exhausted his stock of
fair phrases he graciously hands his
employee an envelope, saying,
"Here is a keepsake for you in
memory of yonr jubilee." Too man
tukes the envelope, mutters many
words of thanks, but does not dare
to open it. "Open it," the banker
says, encouragingly. This is done,
and—the photogjaph of tbe donor
is found inside. Tho cashier remaining silent with astonishment,
his employer says:—"Well, what
do you say to it 1" "All I can say,"
is the reply of the unhappy man,
"is that it is very muoh like  you."
A-OFTINO A FOREIGN SYSTEM.
TttEHON, N.J., Jan. 23.—In the assembly this morning a bill to adopt
the Australian system of voting in this

AN EXCELLENT 0H0I0H.
INDIANI-OLIS, Jan. 23.— John Waua-

secretary of the navy.

BOBBED TWO OBPHAN8.
Lawbence, Mass., Jan. 23.—J. H.
Prescott, of the firm of Prescolt & Oo.,
Inmber dealers, waa arrested but night
on the charge of ombozzl , ont. He
has been serving as guardian of the two
daughter, of Eldndge Josselyn, deceased, eaeh of whom was left several

by bequeat should be psid. In the police oourt to-day Prescott was arraigned on a charge of embezzlement.
He waived eiaiffination and is held for
the grand jury in (10,000 bail.
THI U. S, WAKING OP.
Washinoton, D.O. Jan. 23.—As the
result of the meeting of foroign relations' oommiltee this morning, Sherman reported to the senate an amendment to tho consular diplomatic appropriation bill to insert the following:
"For the execution of the obligations
and protection ot the interests of the
United States existing under treaty
between Ihe U. S. and the government
of the Samoan island 8600,000 or so
much theieof as is neceaaary bo expended under the direetion of the
president" This appropriation is immediately available; also the following:
"Improvement and occupation of the
bay and harbor of Pagopago in the
island of Tutinla, Samoa, and for tho
construction of necessary wharves and
buildings for such occupation, aud for
coaling station therein under direction
of the president, 1100,000." This appropriation will bo immediately available.
TWO CHILDBEN BURNED.
Ellensdubq, W.T., Jan. 28.—At
Tearaway mills, 20 miles north of El-
lensburg, the home of a timber cutter
named Kenyon was burned to the
ground yesterday, and Kenyon's two
little children wore burned to death.
The gathered statistics of the
word show, it is claimed, that a
woman has a greater tenacity of
life than man, and that Hebrew
women aro the longest lived of any
race. Then, too, among insects, the
male perishes at a relatively earlier
period; in plants, the seminate blossoms die earliest, and are produced
in the weaker limbs; and female
quadrupeds have more endurance
than males. In the human race,
despite the intellectual and physical
strength of the man, the woman
endures longest, and will bear pain
to which the strong man succumbs.
Zymotic diseases are more fatal to
mules, and more male ohildren die
than females. Deverga asserts that
the proportion dying suddenly is
about one hundred women and seven
hundred men. Intemperance,
apoplexy, gout, hydrocephalus, afleo-
tiohs of the heart or liver, scorfula,
paralysis are far more fatal to males
than females; while plum-nary consumption, on the other hand is more
deadly to the latter; females in oities
being more prone to this disease
than are those in the country.
Though there are from two to six
percent more males born than
females, yet there is an excess of
more than six percent of females in
the living population.
AFTER THB C.P.R.
Qoebec, Jan. 23.—The Northern
Pacific Railway has a scheme by whioh
it can obtain a thorough route through
Canada and enable it to compete with
the Oanadian Pacific Railway. Three
bills have boen presented to the
Quebec legislature. The first is to incorporate tho Peninsula of Oaspo short
line railway with a capital of $600,000.
The line is to run from Gsspo Basin to
a point on the Metapedia river, north
of Oausapascal river. Here it ia In be
joined by the Eaatorn railway, which
is tu run to St Jean Chrysostoino, op*
posite Quebec. The Inter-Colonial
lias a bridge over the Oausapascal
which will probably be used to unite
the two links. Tho shares of thia road
will be 81,000,000. Tho thin! link ia
thn Northern Central railway to run
from St. Jean Chryaostome to Hull,
where thu jurisdiction of the Quebec
legislature ends. The capital of this
railway is (1,000,000.
LORD ENNISMORE.
Montreal, Jan. 23.—Earl Lislowel
and his son, Lord Ennismore, loft here
on Monday night for New York. Ennismore was unable to walk and was
carried in a chair to the car here and
to the Windsor hotel at Now York.

CHINESE  FOOD DELICACY.
Nbw York, Jan. 10.—A species of
American pond lily that grows everywhere in America was recontly recognised by the Chinese botanist, Dr. Li,
as a famous Chinese food delicacy,
whose potato-liko root is considered
finer than the best yams. The discoverer sent specimens to a Ohinoso

and raised nearly a ton. Yesterday
two barrels of them arrived from San
Francisco, and were oagerly bought at
20 cents per pound.

Boston, Jau. 17.—It is the old Btory,

thero is no telling when he will end.
He first called at all of his old haunts
and drank to his heart's content, not
because he was asked to drink, but because be desired rum and got what he

J. Armstrong, of Golden, interviewed Hon. Mr. Dewdney yesterdsy. He'
wants a piece ol land on the Columbia
for a steamboat landing.
A, O. Matthews, the Winnipeg manager for Dunn, Wiman & Co., has resigned his position to take an oflice in
the New England states.
Measrs. Lloyd and Drummond, who
are intereated in the Alberta and Athabasca railway, left Winnipeg last
Saturday for Calgary in a private car.
The Salvation Army barracks was
destroyed by fire yesterday morning,
at Welland, the inmates barely eacap-
with their lives in their night clothes.
Michael Oulleton, a farmor near
Ottawa dropped dead in his barnyard.
When he was discovered tho hogs hid
eaten his head off dose to the shoulders.
Lieut.-Gov. Mchultz, of Manitoba;

and bad his arm broken. It is feared
that in his weak condition serious results may follow.
Premier Mercier, of Quebec, gave
a reception in parliament house on
Saturday week in honor of Album, at
whose hands she will receive the freedom of tho province of Quebec,
LABO-O-ER-'SCABL-,
London, Jan. 23,—The queen has
intimated her intention of relaxing
tho strict rules about low cut dresses
of ladles attending the drawing rooms,
so thoy will not bo required lo expose
themselves when half naked to the
bleak air of a February day.
NO ONI SORRY.
The bethrothal of Prince Frederick
Leopold, of RuBBia to Princess Louisa,
of Augustenburg, is a nasty blow to
the royal family of England. Several
year, ago there waa a taoit understanding that Prince Frederick Leopcld
should seek a bride in England and
the journey ot the Duke and Duchess
of Oonnaught to Germany in the summer of 1887 was connected with this
matter.
THE QUEEN'S Will.     .
Several erroneous statements have
recently appeared in the papers about
the queen's will. The real truth is
that her majesty's will was made in
1870. It is a document of portent!*
oub length, boing engrossed on vellum
of qurato size, is bound up into a huge
volume and secured by lock. At the
end oro sevoral blank pages for codicils, of which up to the present Ihe
Sueen has made three, one early in
879, after the death of the Princess
Alice, another in the summer of 1884
after the death of the Duke of Albany
and another recently whioh deals exclusively with the jubilee gifts.
THE QUEEN'S   VALUABLES.
I gave an account a fortnight ago of
the queen's celebrated Sevres dessert
service, which is kept in the green
drawing room at Windsor castle. Hr.
Goode, who is the most eminent expert in such matters, informs me that
no fewer than 28 pieces of the service
wore lost or stolen during the reign
of George IV when it waa in daily use
at Carleton House for his majesty's
private table. Mr. Goode during the
last fifteen years has managed to buy
back nineteen of those pieces which
are identical in every respect with
those in the cbineta in the green
drawing roomi -Goode values the service, which belongs to the crown and
is not the property of the queen, at
fully (600,000 and one piece alone, the
famous punch bowl, wu valued a few
years ago by a well-known auctioneer
at (60,000, while Mr. Gocde himself
vainly offered (25,000 to the present
owner of one of tbe missing platea.
The value of the china at Buckingham
Palace and in private apartment, at
Windior must considerably exceed
(1,000,000.
MONTO CARLO,
The proprietors of the Casino at
Monaco muat be trembling for their
profits. Everything at the tables
seems lifeless. Suoh a thing as a maximum stake has not been seen down
this season, aud no large sums have
been lost or won.
MADAME PATOI.
Madame Patti has arranged to leave
Bordeaux for Bunoas Ayres on the
str. sailing Tuesday week.
It is proposed to establish a home
for Gorman invalids at San Remo as a
memorial to the Emperor Frederick.
MATRIMONIAL INFELICITY.
London, San. 23.—It ia rumored
that more trouble has broken out in
Blenheim palace. Reports come from
Woodstock that sinco the Duchess of
Marlborough, late Mrs. Hammersl—,
returned from South France the duke
has discovered certain traces of temperament in her not entirely' to his
liking. Tho duchess is high spirited
and ill brooks criticisms. Interesting
developments are expected. PThe
duchess hu the sympathy of the people of Woodstock.
THE ATTACKS ON BISMARCK.
Berlin, Jan. 23.—Something like a
caucus has been held here of the Conservative members of the Reichstag and
Landag. Resolutions wero paased expressing indignation at the attack of
Prussian Cron Otaette, upon Prinoe Bismarck, and copies of th. resolution, were
sent to the chancellor and Emperor
William. "^
BX-PRF.MIE11S ARRESTED.
London, Jan. 23.—Four of the
Australian directors of the Queensland
Investment Co. have been arretted on
a charge of swindling, by order of the
London board of directors. Two of
the director, under arrest are ex-pro-
miers of Queensland.
A DEFUNCT RING.
Pestk, Jan. 23.—The Hungarian
corn ting, which waa formed to control
tho maize product of Hungary, has
been dissolved with a loss of a million
florins.
WILL ATTACK BOYPT.
London, Jan. 23,—A messenger hu
arrived at Suakim from tho upper Nile
who reports that a force ot 36,000 Dervishes left Khartoum last month for
Dongola to attack Egypt.
A ROYAL VISIT.
London, Jan. 23.—Queen Victoria
and tho Empress Frcdoriok, while at
Biarritz, will take the opportunity to
visit the Queen regent of Spain at San
Sebastian, on tho frontier.
IT MEETS WITH FAVOB.
Vienna, Jan. 23.—The Austrian
press comment favorably on the immigration bill of the American congreu.
They are in favor of anything that
tends to restrict emigration from Austria or Hungary.
The hoary huded old senators of
the Dominion upper house have a rich
fust in store for tbem during the coming session. Eight divorce cease are
to be disposed of. There are uveral
which might be called "tony." The
Middleton cue. In which the nephew
of Sir Fred. Middleton il suing for a
divorce from his naughty wife for
running away with a buk clerit, will
rank among the pithless.

We print a communication in
this paper from Mr. Thos. Cunningham, one of the nlderincn-elect, in
which somo good advice is given
generally, but more particularly
with regard to tho coming exhibition at this city. Mr. Ounniug-
linm proves his faith by his works,
by adding the handsome sum of $30
to the exhibition fund—although
what he means by saying "mark it
paid" in his communication, as wo
do not recoive these subscriptions, we
cannot say. While on tho subject
otthe exhibition we would urge
upon all those intending to do their
share in furthering its success to
send in their names as soon as possible. Other questions havo been
satisfactorily disposed of, and there
is more encouragement than ever in
pulling together for—among other
things—a grand provincial exhibition next -til. With this end in
view, no time shonld be lost in preparing. According to the terms of
the subscription fund, the amounts
subscribed should all be paid in
on or before the 10th of April next,
at the latest, which would leave
about six months to apply the money
so raised to the purpose for which it
was subscribed. The time for taking subscriptions might be extended
a month, perhaps, but the money
should bo in as soon as possible so
that the extensive preparations
necessary may be undertaken without embarrassment or delay. We
would suggest that,about the middle
or last of March, a meeting of subscribers to the fund bo called, and
that this meeting appoint committees to administer tlio amount raised
as shall be'docincd best und expedient, uch committee, to act in conjunction, with the executive of
the B. 0. agricultural association
and tho city council of this city.
By this means, wc believe, a most
eit'ective co-operation, towards a
grand and unqualified success, may
be secured. Send in your names
and subscriptions, and prepare your
exhibits, fellow-citizens, aud when
exhibition day comes we'll havo
nothing left to do but put on our
holiday clothes and hurrah for the
show.
For the last few weeks we  have,
as citizens of Westminster, been almost wholly engrossed in our own
oivic affairs.   This is commendable,
under the circumstances, and  has
. borne good fruit in tho  wise  selection of councillors made.   But  it
will not be amiss, by way of relieving the tension and  changing the
current of thought of the last few
days, to glance away for a moment
from our own important, but comparatively, smaller affairs to a comprehensive survey of the noble  Dominion of which wo arc a part,   At
a late meeting of the  Institute  of
Albany, Now York,  according  to
the Dominion Illustrated, Professor
Halph W. Thomas read a paper on
Canada, the matter being altogether
statistical and authentic. The question is asked,   "What  is Canada 1"
which is answered as follows :  Geographically Canada has an area  of
3,360,000 square-miles,of whioh the
basin of tbe Hudson's Bay alone is
2,000,000 square miles.   Canada is
forty times as  large  as  England,
Scotland and Wales.   It is equal to
three British  Indias,  and fifteen
times as large as the German. Empire.   The excess of its  area,  over
that of the United States is greater
than that of the whole area included
in tlie thirteen colonies joining  in
tho declaration of independence   A
oountry of magnificent  areas; unmeasured arublo plain and   prairie ;
of mountains rich in minerals; of
lacustrine systems dwarfing those of
the   Uuitetl   States;  of  majestic
rivers, wholly within her own   borders,  measured  on  the   Missouri-
Mississsippi scale.   This is Canada.
Industrial Canada is great in  agriculture and minerals. Ontario raises
the finest barley in the  world  and
some of the finest draught  horses.
Tbe great Northwest includes 466,-
000 square miles of the wheat field
of the world.    From ita situation
it baa two hours more of  daylight
than other wheat bearing regions on
this continent,     This means  two
hours more'of forcing power every
day.   Draughts are  never  feared.
Manitoba olaims 76,000,00 acres of
wheat fields.   The Canadian wheat
crop (or the first ten  months  of
1888 was valued   at    $5,000,000,
The Northwest regions are capable
of supporting a population of many
millions, and  immigrants  are al-
ready pouring in.   Alberta  is  the
ranch of Canada.   Its climate is so
mild, on account of the warm   current- on tbe Pacifio, that horses and
oattle roain over die pastures tbe
year round, and are found in spring
to bo in go)-* condition for market.
The Canadians exported  $10,000,-
_hj6m__.h at cattle during the first
ten kortthi of 1887.   All these ad-
va—Sage- are to  be reinforced  by
trangfortation.   The Oanadian Pa-
oifio-Uilroad Is a bat, and tho
Hudson's Bay route is promised, by
< whioh WitaUpeg •»  brtwiM|! 783
milea nearer Qverpool than by way
of Montreal, nud 1,062 miles nearer
than by  Chicago.   By  this   route
Liverpool would he  brought   2,136
miles nearer to China  and   Japan
than via New York and San Francisco.  If this route succeeds,Oanada
will hold tho key to the markets of
the world.   Coal exists throughout
Canada in  abundance,   the  entire
coal area covering  97,000   square
miles.    The  copper deposits  are
pronounced by Mr. Erastus Wiman
to be almost beyond human   belief.
The Calumet  and  Hecla  vein   is
twelve feet thick; the  Canadian
vein is 1,000 foet thick.    The  geological survey has located   567  deposits  in  the  eastern   townships
alone. Gold and silver exist in great
plenty, chiefly in Nova Scotia  and
British    Oolumbia.   In   the latter
province   $50,000,000   have  been
taken from the  ground  by   unimproved methods, and this  seems to
point to vast deposits in the  mountains.   In Beaver mine,   at  Port
Arthur, discovered in  March last,
thoro is in sight, by actual measurement, $750,000 worth   of    silver.
Like bonanzas have been reported in
British Columbia.   Such exposures
aro unprecedented.   Iron is  found
in unlimited quantities and   of  the
best grade.   Near Ottawa there is a
hill of iron estimated to contain 100,-
000,000 tons.   Tbo railroad up the
valley of the Tient runs through a
continuous iron belt for 150 miles.
Mr. Wiman is authority  for  the
statement that at New Glasgow, in
Nova Scotia, within a radius of six
miles, there are found hundreds  of
tons of iron ore, of the best quality,
side by side with limestone,  chemically pure, coko in  Beams   30  feet
thick, all directly on the line of the
Intercolonial Railway   and   within
six miles of the   Atlantic  ocean.
This ore could be put on the   wharf
in Boston fcr $1.60 per ton, which,
to-day    costs    from     $5  to  $6
por ton.   The Ontario  government
has recently sold 150,000  acres  of
land for $2 an  acre,   covering  an
iron belt seventy-five miles  across.
Commercial Canada has not yet acquired that prominence which might
bo expected when the resources   of
the country aro considered.     Yet,
in her merchant   marine,  Canada
ranks fourth among the nations  of
the earth,   Commerce is now being
fostered by the government, and in
1881 the American trade with Canada amounted to $89,000,000. Theso
facts partly   answer   the  question
"What is Oiiimdnf"   and   we  hold
with the professor tlmt tbey   vindicate the Canadian's claim   for  the
greatness of his country's destiny.
Tho Pacific coaat is already buying
300,000 tons of Canadian coal every
year, in spite of the duty.    American manufacturers are compelled to
go to Malta and   Spain  for  iron,
when it exists within a few   hours'
ride of their own borders. Tho manufacturers of this country  are  deprived of nickel, which could  be
used in many ways, were it not for
tho high price of the metal.    It  is
better than steel for the making of
ordnance.   But thero are only two
deposits of consequence in the world.
One is within a few' miles of  De
troit; tho other is in new Caledonia,
half way round tbe globe.   Americana hear much of the high price of
lumber and much of the destruction
of their forests.   Anyone  can see
that a high tariff on lumber  means
direct destruction to   their   own
forests.   Canadian lumber  by  the
million feet is annually going up in
the smoke of forest fires,   or  rots
into the earth.   Ten million acres
of forest exist in British Columbia
alone,

" Yob," said a Detroit merchant the other
day to a Detroit Free Press reporter, "ninety
por cent of tbe stories about attempts to
blackmail the business men of Ute country
are true,"
" Possibly you, may hav. had tn experience ot the kind!" (suggested tho reporter.
" Ves," replied the merchant, "and that
is why I speak with so much positive-ess."
" But it wasn't a success!" the reporter
ventured to remark.
"No," was the reply; "and probably only
because I kept my wits about me, Tbe ad*
ventures*, visited the counting-room three
Smes during an interval of ten, days. On
io first two occasions my partner or some
ono else happened to be present, but on the
last occasion sho found me alone. Bhe pre*
tended to bo getting subscribers for an art
journal, and really interested me ln the
engravings she bad with her, for my taste
was somewhat in tbat line,. She had a
aweet voice and was a fluent talker. She
was prettily dressed, and had just enough of
gush not to awaken my suspicions."
"Handsome, was she!" asked the re*
■ porter.
"Well, ycs-styllsb, tt least—and with
what might be called a superb _guro. Suddenly she announced that unless I gaveher
fifty dollars she would set up an outcry and
alarm the entire .ton. I looked ather t
moment ln dumb amazement. There waa a
look In her bold, brown eyea that I did uot
like.
"Isawmyporil. My integrity at home
and in tho community Is A No. 1, as,you
very well know.' But, suppose she bad
.creamed and brought clerks and custom*
ers into the counting-room! Not a few
would have been ready to believe any
chargo she might have made againat me.
Bven after a man has been entirely vindicated his character la still somewhat
smirched, and against that there seems to
be no redress. My wife Is not the least bit
Jealous and trust, mo implicitly, and yet I
would not have had her aerenity disturbed
for ten times the sum demanded of me.
You can understand from this how a married man whose character is not above reproach is quite likely to submit to the extortion. I determined to outwit the designing woman.
"That is t cool demand," I said, with t
half-satisfied little laugh. "The amount
does not surprise mo—It Is the sublime assurance. You are very bright and pleasing
and full ot daring, and I wouldn't mind
knowing you better."   ,
"My reply threw her 08 her guard. My
temporizing pleased her. Her eyes warmed
up, and she leaned aloser to me.
"But," I said, "I haven't tho money (bout
me."
"Your oheok will do," ahe quietly rejoined.
"AU right," assented I.
"I filled up a cheek for the amount,
signed it and handed It to her. Bhe scanned
it In u business-like way and then said:
"X am muoh obliged to you."
"Oil, don't mention it," I aaid, with a
glance that led her to suspect that I was a
trifle faBolnntod.   "I know you must bo in
need, or you would not descend: to such a
trick.  But allow mo to suggest that you
bave not been wary enough."
"Why!" asked she, with a puzzed look.
"Thistolophone connects with the bank
upon which I havo drawn tho check," I
aaid. "I oould stop Its payment before you
reached the sidewalk."
"That is truo I" she said, i-tkt discomfited air, "I'll not take tbe check."
" Bhe laid It down and I picked it up.
"First I admired your imp-tenet," Laid;
" now I am beginning to admire uw. WIU
you pleaso write down your name tnd address! Possibly I may call. I'U aend my
head book-keeper to the bank with you.
He'U vouch for you and you'll get the money."
" Bhe looked at me keenly, then penciled
down her name and addreu. Bhe thought
that I had' tumbled to the racket,' as Ihe
saying Is, tnd that ahe oould presume on
my cleverness In the future. Itouohodthe
call-bell and a cash boy entered.
"Tell Mr. T. to como hore,"Slid I, "I
want hlm to go with this lady to bave a
eheck cashed for tier,"
"The pretty Uttle adventure., had
•moothed her hair and replnncd her collar.
When tho head book-keeper come In Laid
to him i
"Mr, T„ this lady his a work of art to
thoy, you. It is Issued In monthly, parts,
tnd tbe price aeoma quite reasonable. Bho'U
explain it to you as she did to mo."
"I caught up my hat and walked out of
the counting-room with the check In my
hand. The look of baffled rage which she
sent after me was comical to see. Sho
frowned on -the book-keeper, wrapped up
her sample copies and left"
"She'U try it again," remarked the reporter.
"Not here," repUed the merchant. "I'm
never here alone mnv-nelUior It my partner. The very hekt day tio book-keeper1,
deskwas put inside tbe railing. I tell you
there are all the time -schemes going on,
tnd you have to he pretty sharp if a designing woman happen, to be it the bottom of then. I didn't l_nk so at first, but
I think so now.'*
"And did .he give you her real nimel"
aaked tho reporter.
"That I can't anawer. The addreu wu
correct, but she moved before a detective
got there. Bhe wu a Uttle afraid of the reiult of ber experiment with me."
"Am I at liberty to uu thi. episode!"
ukod the reporter.
"Why, certainly, sir. I tunpoiod that to
he tho object of your inquiries. An inkling
of tho matter reached you, didn't there!"
"Yes.'.' ;.,,
"So I suspected. Well, tbe story Is just
u I have given It to you. But you must

The error occured through the omission of a line between the balance from

with the auditor.

Rumors aro afloat to the effect that

Should such an event occur it is reasonable enough to assume that the N.

road, but to open competition with tho
other lines projected north from Seattle. A line eastward from here
through the Big Bend country to a
connection with the N.P. would give
that road an approximately straight

False Statement.
Referring to the elections the Wo. Id
says: "The World's representative was
refused admittance to the polling both
by the returning officer. Shortly afterwards a policemen admitted him, but
he was ordered to withdraw, A representative of The Columbian however, was allowed inside and to that
person the retailing officer handed a
paper with result, fully ton minutes
before he announced it to the public,"
If the WWW had wished to stato the
truth it would have said tho representative of The Columbian was the duly
authorized and sworn election agent
of Mr. Thos, Cunningham, and in
that capacity was present at the counting of the ballots and therefore had
the returns as soon as the deputy officers, and fully 15 minutes beforo the
official statement was received by the
returning officer. The clmrgo againat
Mr. Robson, the returning officer, is
very serious and the sooner the World
apologizes for the same the better it
will be for that journal.

A Favorable Comparison.
Tho report of tho legislative committee to examine into and investigate
the fishing industry of tbe stato of
Oregon has been issued. It contains
much valuable information regarding
the fishing industry. The report of
the board uf fish commissioners says
that Mr. R. D, Hume built a cannery
on Rogue river, Oregon, in 1877 and
packed that year 3,500 cases. The
same year he built a small butchery
and turned out 50,000 fry. Since then
he has put out from 50,000 to 150,-
000 annually, and his pack has gradually increased to 12,000 cases, which
hu attributes to tho successful working
of his hatchery. Tho value of the
hatchery is proven by the fact that the
pack on neighboring rivers is steadily
decreasing. The Oregon government
hatchery has put uut 0,500,000 salmon
fry in t wu years at a cost of $10,000.
During the .nine period the Frasor
rivor hatchery has put out 11,500,000
with an outlay of $9,000. From this
it will be Been tho comparison is greatly
in favor of tho Canadian hatchery.
Ouelty lo Animals.
A train load of cattle arrived from
tho interior yesterday and were unloaded at tho C.P.N.Co.'s corral. Iu one
car five animals were found to be
dead, having been tramped to death
and soveral others wero terribly injured aud unable to rise. In unloading
the cattle the Chinese employed by
the C.P.R. used goads with a sharp
spike on the end fully half an inch in
length. With theae the brutes prod*
ded tho animals until the goads were
covered with blood, and the indignation of the onlookers whs so much
aroused that Constable Pearce was
sent for to force them to desist from
such inhuman actions. The poor animals were lashed into fury by the torture practiced on them and the moans
from the wounded animals being trampled on were piteous to hear. It is
time that a society for the prevention
of cruelty to animals was organized in
Westminster, for this sort of brutal
treatment to animals is no unusual
thing. It is probable a complaint in
the matter will be made direct to Mr.
Abbott, who, it is hoped, will remedy
this cowardly abuse.
Since writing the above tho oar
containing the dead cattlo and two of
the wounded was shunted down to the
O.P.N, corral and one of the animals,
still alivo but not ablo to walk, was
dragged out by horse power, a rope
having been fastened round its neck.
The animal was then killed and
butchered. The authorities were
informed of this last net but what
action they will tako is not  known.
The Week's Minimi News.
Outsido the work that is steadily
being done at Field, the only important bit of news of the week is the sale
of a half interest in a J ubilee Mountain
olaim. The pioperty disposed of is an
undeveloped piece of ground, hut
favorably located. Some high grade
copper ore, rich in silver, wu taken
from the vein in doing the assessment
work. Sheriff Redgrave, the purchaser,
has other properties on tho mountain,
and has done much in aiding the development of the district. The lost
purchase proves that ho still has faith
in the future of the camp. The interest purchased iB part of tha Silver
King location, and the party selling,
Hugh McDonald. Thu prico paid was
$500 cash. "Shan" McKay bas put
men to work on his claims on the same
mountain, as has the Law company.
Jonea & Wells, on the east side of
Jubilee Mountain, seeing that they
could not dispose of their ore to the
Vancouver smelter, havo quit taking
out ore and recommenced driving tbe
tunnel on their great Spallumcheen
mine. At field, 30 men are at work
on the Monarch. So far, snow has not
Interfered with operations, The usual
ore shipment went through to Vancouver during tho week. Coal from the
mines at Anthracite is moving west*
ward, a few carloads going through
daily. At Donald, a company, with
capital stook of $10,000, haa been organized to work placer ground on
Porcupine Creek. Tho oompany will
begin operations as early as possible in
the spring. In the Big Bend country,
tho placers on Csrnes Crook are to be

CORRESPONDENCE.
Mr. Cnnnlnehau's Thanks. |
KbiTOB Columbian,—Sir, will you
kindly permit mo through your columns
to return thanks to tho ladles and gentle
men who voted for me without my
solicitation at Monday's municipal
election. I have been, since Friday the
Hth, confined to my room by an unfortunate accident, and could not be present
at nomination, and was permitted to be
out only a couple of hours on Saturday
night and one hour this day. I havo
not solicited a single vote nor have I
made a promise directly or indirectly
other than what was said publicly on
Saturday evening. And now that this
important election is over and the progress of the city secured, I would suggest that we havo peace. Let the
successful candidates guard against a
spirit of exultation. There were some
very good men defeated, Unfortunately
they wore considered to bo
lukewarm, if not hostile, to
the Southern Railway enterprise, which
was the main question at issue. Notwithstanding the defeat of the other
side, I do trust that they will fall into
line in the march of progress. New
Westminster is on the ascending grade.
We must by onr resolute determination
and ceaseless industry forge ahead and
convince the anti-progress party that the
council eleoted is their truest and best
friend. But flrst let us "bury the
hatchet;" we have nothing to gain by exhausting our energies fighting needless battles.
The new council will have many
arduous and unpleasant duties to perform ; there must be a complete and radical change in the management of the city
finances. I have been looking into the
published accounts of tbe oity auditor
and find this startling fact, out of a
revenue of $49,540 from all sources, tbe
paltry sum of $5,007, was expended on
street repairs. I protest that this is not
a satisfactory showing, but just who is
responsible or where to locate the blame
is difficult to determine, A reformation
must be effected, this sort of business
will not do. And now that The Columbian has led in the reform movement and
struck steady blows with an independence that is refreshing, I hope you will
follow up this signal victory and closely
watch and fearlessly criticize every
movement of every public man in the
oity, and I would odd the district also.
Much has beon said about the necessity
of a market; while I wonld rejoice to see
sueh an institution established and maintained. I believe it is more months we
need; a market without consumers would
not be a success. We need to foster
more industries; the absence of these iB
New Westminster's weakness. Given
au agricultural, horticultural railroad
and manufacturing centre, and our high
destiny is secured. We cau never obtain any of these advantages so long as
we are divided into opposing factions;.
let us have peace, but not stagnation.
On Saturday night I intended to have
referred at aome length to the coming
X(cultural exhibition, but an unexpect*
, unfriendly shot from therear occasioned temporary confusion, from wbloh
there was not time to recover, and this
as well as other matters of importance
waa overlooked. You aro aware that
the honor of the city was pledged to tho
support of the agricultural society at its
annual meetiug, and that only by careful management was the next show secured for New Westminster. One of the
arguments used againat ua was the paucity of our exhibitions. I think there
were four entries for tbe royal eity, a
poor showing sure enough and a most
difficult argument to meet. Only that
an earnest effort had been made to secure members for the society we ahould,
have out a sorry figure. There will be
no excuse for the absence of electors this
yoar. There is abundance of time to prepare articles for exhibition, and as this
is the quiet season of the year, now Is
tho time to get ready. Every manufacturer in tho city ought to be busily en*
gaged in this good work. Cabinet
makers, carpenters, marble cutters, wood
turners, shoemakers, tailors,* farmers and
eurrlers, woolen manufacturers, metal
workers, painters, florists, and, lut but
not least, the ladies—all and every ono
ought to spare no effort to make the agricultural exhibition of 1889, the best
that has ever been held in this province.
The new council will, undoubtedly devise liberal things, but after they shall
have done their best, it will require the
active co-operation of every good citizen.
Let ns go forward.
You may put my name down for $30
on the exhibition fund, and mark it paid.
In conclusion I would urge every man in
the city to become a member of the Agricultural Society.
Very respectfully,
Thomas Cunningham.
