A striking improvement in clonks
was exhibited and described to the

works, and by its slow rule of vitiation umke-i ib practicable ' to

Ventilating Bees. — According
to Miss Eva M. A. Bewsher, of
Mauritius, it is a well-authenticated
fact that each hive in tropicul countries has its "ventilating bfos" dur-
ing the hot season. Two or three of
these bees are stationod at the
entranco of the hive, and cool tho
interior ly incessant fanning with
their wings. They are relieved at
inturvalsrby others, and while on
Juty (ire kept constantly at work, by
a sort of patrol of bers.
Formation op Hain.—In all oases
iiin is produced by lhe cooling of
the air, statod Mr. H. F. Blandford
n a recent lecture,, and in nearly
all, if not all, this cooling is produced by the'expansion of the air.
in ascending from lower to higher
levels ih the atmosphere, by what
is termed dynamic cooling. This
last fact, which is not emphasized
as it should be in some popular textbooks, was originally suggested by
Espy some forty years ago, but is
only pow generally recognized, i
Acrophobia, — An exaggerated
senso of the danger of falling from
high places hns lately received tho
name of "Acrophobia," A physician
has described his own case, in which
the peculiarity is especially marked.
Though not naturally timid, he feels
extremo nervousness on even mounting a steep ladder, riding on top of
a conch, or looking out of u first-
story window, und the mere thought
of persons who have fallen from elevations, or even of the spinning of
the earth in space, causes discomfort
and tingling over his person, ; The
fear grows upon him as sight and
hearing weaken.
Wooden Cards. — Thin slices
from tho ends of our common close-
grained timbers have a toughness
that is surprising to those who test
it for the first time. The "wooden
cross section cards'' whioh have been
made during the past three years,
under the patent of Mr. 11. B.
Hough, of iiowville, N. Y., serve
many of the purposes of ordinary
cardboard, though only a fiftieth of
an inch or less thick and cut directly across the grain. They are
almost transparent, and have a
smooth, characteristically - grained
surface, suited for decorative painting or for printing.
"Bars op Water.—"Soap," snys
Mr. W. Mattieu Williams, "always
contains more or less of water, in
some cases fnr more than is desirable,
so much as to become an adulterant.
A few yenrs ago two men brought
to my door somo salvage soap at
2d. per pound, said to come from a
wrecked ship. I handled it, nnd
told the gentleman that 2d. per
pound was a high prico for water.
A neighbor bought a few burs nnd
stored them in a dry place. A few
weeks after the bars had shrunk to
mere ropes about one-eighth of their
original bulk. Such shrinkage
measured by loss of weight affords a
simple measure of such adulteration."
Electric Traction vs. Wheel*
harrows.—Some of the galleries of
the Stnssfurth mines, from which
large quantities of rock salt and
potash stilts are taken, nre very
extensive, one being 900 yards long.
At tho beginning of 1884, a small
electric railway wus opened to take
the place of wheelbarrows in these
galleries, and has worked bo successfully since that, notwithstanding
tho expense of the first establishment, a saving of 50 per cent has
been effected. In the first year the
locomotive hauled 176,196 cars
without the necessity of repairs, and
it has operated over since under tho
same conditions. Tho locomotive
is three feet wide and five feet high,
weighing 4780 pounds. Two Siemens dynamos, each driven by n
Ki-horso-powei' engine, furnish the
current through overhead conductors

Our attention lias been culled to
the urgent nejessity that exists for
a avotnan „ ward and a female nurse
in connection with the city hospital
hero. Neither exist at present, and
the consequence is that there is absolutely no provision whatever for
female patients. Willi tho rapidly
increasing growth of the town, this
is becoming necessary, in the ease
of female servants, for instanco, I of
whom there are quito a number in
the eity, with present indications
pointing to a largo increase. In
the event of sickness or accident in
such oases, it would be very inconvenient in many instances for the
patienti to bo nursed by her employ-
era, and yet there would be no niter-
native as at present but the street.
At least one casein point has beon
brought to our notice. That there
should be no female ward or assistant
in the hospital, must strike everyone,
prima facie, as a state of things
requiring immediate remedy. We
believe there is room in the present
hospital for the establishment of
such a ward and wo would strongly
urge upon the government the
necessity for moving early in tho
matter. With regard to the rather
delapidated hospital buildings them
selves, we believe our citizens should
take decided measures to have a new
hospital erected on some site further
removed from the city centre.
Elsewhere is announced a meeting to bo held at Sapperton on
Wednesday next to obtain the views
of residents and property-owners in
that vicinity on the subject of including the suburb of Sapperton in
the corporate city limits. The consent of the residents and property-
owners aforesaid is necessary to this
move, and it is to be hoped that it
may be cheerfully and unanimously
given, as the change will prove advantageous both to the city and
the district sought to be included.
Ab we have beforo intimated, the
intention is, while the charter is
being amended, to include the remainder of the traot shown on the
official map, and comprising about
one thousand acres (including Sapperton), within the eity limits. This
will be a benefit to the city, by
adding to its importance and largely
increasing the amount of assessable
property. The new district included will receive compensation in
the increased dignity pertaining to
its promotion from "wild land" to
being part and parcel of the royal
city, and sharer in ita noble destiny,
and by the city improvements which
it will be enabled to claim. The
suburb of Sapperton, especially, has
reached that stage when its progress
must be hindered by being deprived
longer of civic institutions, and the
present opportunity of participating
in the dignity and the privileges of
the royal city's charter should, and
no doubt will, be gladly availed of,
As will be seen by the report of
the local legislature proceedings, Mr.
Bole, member for this city, has been
endeavoring to get a  bill through
the houae for the repeal of what  is
known as the  Small   Debts   Act.
Thi. act enables small accounts to
be collected summarily by judgment
in police courts.   The procedure in
such cases ia simple and inexpensive,
and where there is an  attempt  to
defraud a workingmen or trader  of
his dues by the popular  process  of
"skipping out," the Small Debts Act
provides nn invaluable remedy  for
bringing the   would-be   delinquent
up sharp   with "neatness and   despatch" and at the minimum of expense for the party seeking to  recover the debt   Mr. Bole's ostensible object iu applying  for  the  ro-
peul of lhe net in question appears
to have been the transference of all
such cases  from   the   magistrates'
courts to tho county courts, on tho
ground that  tho  former tribunals
were not competent to deal  with
them.   The protests against the repeal of the act, however, from  thia
city and from Vancouver,  as   well
as the almost universal  opposition
evoked in the house, go  to show
that in practice tho  Small Debts
Act works well  and  is  a public
benefit, Mr. Bole's views on the sub
jectto the contrary  notwithstanding.   Perhaps those views  are influenced to some extent by the fact
thst, under the act as at present,
protracted legal  services  are  dispensed with and the "law's delays"
md expenses reduced to a minimum.
However that may be, it is pretty
clear that the Small Debts Act ia a
beneficial   measure,  whose repeal
would be a publio misfortune,  and
whioh, in the face of all the  repre-
aentationson  the  .ubject,   is not
likely to be effected.

that he will apply for private bills

South Fork River, and other lands;
to incorporate a company for the
purpose of acquiring lands in the
province, for the manufacture and
exportation of lumber and articles

Thos. F. McGuigan, city clerk of

various readings, to Bay nothing of
amendments which may bo necessary, wili givo our legislators something to do, between meals, as it
were. The applications themselves
make a good snowing for provincial
private enterprise and prospective
progress.

Mra Palmer Teaches Her Hufibaro
• "At a Much-Needed Leaion.
_> 	
' Nellie Palmer was lying on the lounge in
her pretty bed-room, crying and looking
very unhappy. And yet ahe had been married only six months, and to such a "nice,
handsome man," us all tbe young ladle* declared, that surely sho ought to be happy
with blm. And ao she bad been until, to
tell the truth. Bob Palmer, forgetting, or
[.coming to forgot, that ho was a married
man, bad raoently talsen to flirting with
these very young ladies at all tbe parties in
. Middleton, leaving his wifo to take care of
herself. Surely It was enough to make tay
nix-months' wife cry, especially one io sea*
silive as Nellie. H
Not tbat Robert Palmer loved his little wife
u bit loss than on tho day of his maariage,
neither that Nellie suspected him of it, or
lor a moment doubted bla constancy. But
Mr. Palmer waa a gay young man, and loved
to amuse himself and to be amused. - •-.-■
I "Hollo! been drying again,I declare!"
exclaimed Mr. Bob Palmer, suddenly ceasing bla little whistle, as ho entered the room
on returning from his offlce. " What's the
matter now, Nellie? Canary refused to
slug, or Mme. Vlglini not put flowers
enough in your bonnet!"
"Ob, Bob I how can you.1' sobbed Nellie,
beginning afresh. "If you knew how much
a wifo thinks of her husband's lovo and—"
Hero poor Nellio broke down. Mr. Pal*
mer's eyes opened very wide.
"Whew!" whistled he; "If this isn't
really absurd.  So she's jealous 1"
"Indeed, no, dear Bob 1 But—but"—she
could hardly speak for the choking in her
throat—"yon can't understand the pride a
woman takes in having her husband treat
her with affection and respect before everyone, or bow it humbles and mortifies her to
be neglected by him and havo other women
consider themselves her tivols-liko Isabel
Baden."
- Bob Palmer laughed outright, and then he
grew angry.
" You're an absurd little fool, Nellie," lie
said. "As if Isabel Baden wero any thing to
mo beyond a pleasant and agreeable young
worn .in to amuse one's self with at a party.
Nonsense!" _..*.,'
"She don't think so," said Nellie; "tad-
ami the others don't think so. They all
think you are getting tired of your wife, and
Isabel flatters herself that sho has out me
out, and Is trying to let people seo It"    ,
"Fiddlesticks!" said Bob, rising impatient-*/ from tho lounge. "I'm astonished
at you, Nellie, and had really given you
credit for more senso as well as temper,"
lio added, severely. * "I wish you'd amuse
yourself in society, as I do, Instead of mop*
lag about In this fashion. You can't expect to have mo tied to your apron strings;
•fid I'd much rathor soo you flirting a littlo
yourself than skulking away in holes
and corners like a spider, watching
your butterfly, of a husband to seo if; you
can detect him tn doing wrong. You make
me quite ashamed of you, I doclare."
■ Mr. Palmer took his hat and walked out
of the room, with an air of mingled dignity
and injured innocence. Bis wife sat up,
wiped away hor tears and mused awhile,
with eyes flashing and cheeks flushed with
wounded and indignant feeling.
" Yes/' she said to herself, "sinco he has
requested It, I will amlm. myself 'as ho
does,' and seo how ho likes It. Ashamed of
mo, is bet And he did not used to bo so
when I wu gay and happy. Oh, Bob, if
you only knew how I loved you I"
And once more, despite hor resolutely
closing her eyes and pressing her fingers
upon them, tho tears would como.
ti Therewastobo.thatvoryovoning.aparty
at Colonel Johnston's, and Ndlio took particular pains in dressing herself for It. Sue
bad been of lato rather careless on this
point, and wa* now rewarded for her extra
oarc by her husband's glance of approval and
his remark that tho pink silk was becoming
to her. In conscquonco her eyes and
cheeks wore brighter, and hor spirits more
buoyant as she entered Mrs. Johnston's
crowded drawing-rooms. Scarcely had they
paid their respects to the hostess when Mr.
palmer accosted, or rather was accosted by
Miss Baden, a brilliant, confident girl, who
tried to ensnare him before his marriage,
and at tbe samo moment a gentleman ad*
dressed Mrs. Palmar.
. She -answered mechanically, unable to
withdraw her attention from her husband
and his companion until, seeing something
in Miss Baden's glance at herself which
she did not like, ber pride again awoke, and
ahe turned, as with a sudden determination,
to the gentleman at her sido. Be was a recent comer to the town, very pleasant and
handsome, and Nellie Palmer forthwith began to try and moke herself agreeable to
bim. Be looked so pleased, and wo* himself so agreeable, that it soon cost her no
effort to converse; and then her old lively
spirits returned; and, to her surprise, she
found that she was enjoying herself.
Hor husband didn't muoh notico this, but
Mtia Boden did; and her flirtation with Mr.
Palmer lost much of its charm, now that his
wifo did not appear mortified and jealous,
and that people couldn't see that sho wa*
to. Wherefore Miu Baden grew Indifferent, and Mr. Palmer bethought himself to
look after his wife. Not finding her looking over the photograph albums, nor talking to deaf old Mr. Brown, neither In tay of
the "holes and corners" whioh she wm
wont of late to f rcquont, he became rather
puttied.
i "She's got in the dump* again, X suppose," was his thought, "and is trying to
disguise It under the pretense of being UL
Dara sayi shall find hor crying or Mating
away in the conservatory, with fans aad
smelling bottles round her, or perhaps she's
gonohome."
At that Instant a little laugh at his elbow
startled him, and turning, he saw Nellio,
bright and flushed, talking to a very handsome man, who appeared quite absorbed In
her. Mr. Palmer stared a moment at the
unconscious couplo.
"Why. the douce 1" was his thought,
"what oa earth can th*v bave been talking
about aU ttt wkUel'VIhon luMsaly muting hi* Wife's oyo he smiled end whispered
"Knjoying yourself, Nolll"
11 Oh yes, dear, delightfully 1 Don't trouble
yourself about mc, pray,"
He pused In, but didn't go far, and os he
stood, whispering soft nothings to sentimental Bote Marshall, his eyes occasionally
wandered to hi* wife. How pretty she
WM looking, ud how gay sho was, and
how coquettishly sho was exchanging light
repartee with that flirting follow, Tom Her-
rlioo. And # the time tho handsome
stranger never loft hor sido. It was perfectly evident that he admired hor.
"If she1 wero net * married woman ho
would oortaltly fall in lovo v.-th hor, she,
my wife," and he felt a littlo resentful of
tb* admiration.
Nellio Palmer had never sung more
•waetly or danoad mon gracefully than on
this evening.
"Don't you think, Nsll, you havo danced
enough for one night," uid her husband toward the dose of the evening," for a married woman ."he added.
"Perhaps so," she answered, cheerfully,
"butl'vocnjoyedmyselfumuch! ItcallJ,-
I almost forgot I wu a married woman,
and felt liko a girl again."
"And behaved like one," he said, rather
coolly. "Who is that fellow that has been
in attendanco upon you all the evening!"
he inquired, as they walked down-stairs.
"That remarkably handsome man, with
the expressive dorkeyes, do you meant"
"I nover noticed his eyu or that he was
at all handsome," he answered stiffly.
"Oh, I thought you meant Captain
Lovell, of the artillery. Ah, hero hols-
just ono moment, dear, I quite forgot—
And Nellie spoke a few words to the
Captain in passing, of which her husband
oould distinguish only something about
"tho book."
"Upon my word," he said, sarcastically,
II you appear very Intimate already."
"Because, love, we've discovered that
wo'ro congenial spirits. We like tho samo
things: books, music, scenery; indeed,
every thing, and have the same opinions
on most subjects. You know bow pleasant
it la to meet with one who can comprehend
you; not your outer self merely, but with a
sort of soul sympathy."
"Soul fiddlestick-"
" You never did have muoh sentiment,
Bob," sighed Nellie, in on injured tone.
"Sentiment be hanged! Come, Nellie,
he quick with your wrappings. It 1ms been
a stupid evening, and I shall be glad to get
borne and to bed."
When Robert Palmer camo homo noxt
day be found his wife, not crying, as beforo, iu her bed-room, but in the parlor,
practicing a new ung. '
•> Captain Lovell called this morning,"
she said, " and I havo promised to sing this
for him at Mrs. Campboll's."
" Ah I.' ho answered, with an expression
of indifference; and, as his wifo aj*utn
struck up with the flrst fow notes, h» muttered to himself: "Confound Captain
Lovell,"
At Mrs. Campbell's Captain Lovell was
again in attendance . upon pretty Mis.
Palmer, and then other gontlomuu discovered hor attractions, piquancy, coquet-
tishnaBs and flirtableness, and so in n very
few weeks Mrs. Palmer was a belle. Sho
did not seem in the least to care who hor
husband was attending upon; and, indeed,
he could rarely get a word with hor at ull
when at the gay assemblies which tltey
frequently attended. He sometimes gave
her a hint that she was " no longer a girl,"
und that lio was her husband; but she only
laughed and said there wu no harm done,
and that sho was enjoying herself so delightfully, and felt herself moro a belle
than ever when a girl—whioh was true, because sho had not flirted then, boing
absorbed heart and soul in Bob Palmer.
But now it was; Captain Lovell who appeared chiefly to occupy her thoughts us
well as a good part of her timo. She sang
and danced with him, she read tho books he
sent, dud so frequent were his visits, so
constant his attentions, that at lust Mr.
Palmer's wrath burst forth.
"Ellen," ho said, as he ono'day closed the
door on tho departing Captain, " I really
can not permit this to go on any longer.
Your conduct to me is most unexpected—
most astonishing. You are by fur too intimate with this fellow, Lovell. Ho is constantly in my bouse, and last, evening ho
scarcely left your side, whilo you stood for
two hours the center of a group of chattering, grinning popinjays, like himself."
"Why, Bob, you yourself blamed me for
playing wall flower and 'spider,' and said
you were ashamed of me."
"I am moro ashamed of you now," he retorted, Bevorely.
"Now, dear, that Is quite unreasonable of*
you. Didn't you tell me that I would please
you by enjoying myself and flirting a little.
You know you did," added Nellie, reproachfully ; "and now tbat I am obeying you you
get jealous."
"Jealous! Notll But I am offended and
insulted—yea, and disgusted us well, If
only you could hear the remarks about
yourself and that Lovell—"
"Similar to those I heard in regard lo you
and Miss Baden, I presume," said Ids wife.
"Whatls Miss Baden to me!" he demanded, angrily. • ■«*•■>.
"And what is Captain Lovell to mo!"
"You encoufoge him* madam. You flljft-
withhlm."   -
"As you do with Isabel Baden."
"A man may do what I* not permissible
In a woman."
"Ah, that is it!" said Nellie, with hor old
sigh. "You may negleot a Wife—may wear
out her heart and life with anguish—may
expose her to the pity or ridicule of all acquaintance by showing devotion to another;
and sho, poor slave, must not presume to
turn, as may even tbo trampled worm, but
must bear all in meek silence, ncvei* imploring mercy lest sho should offend her
lord. But I have had enough of this, Bob,
and now as you do to me will I do to you. If
you go on flirting, so will I. I know you
don't caro a bit moro for Isabel Baden than
I do for Captain Lovell; but I will not be
neglected and humbled In tho sight of the
wholo world. I am not a slave, but a wife,
and demand the honor due to me.
Hor mood was a new one to her husband.
She sat erect and proud, looking him steadily in the face with bright, clear eyes, in
whose depths ho could still read groat tenderness, and he at onco comprehended tho
whole matter.—N, Jr", Sun.

. niiivh Opening*
As previously annpuncetl tho now
Presbyterian brick church in this city
will bo opened to-inorow. Wiero will
bo throo services during tho day, to
all of which tho public aro -cordially
invited, As Mr. Whito has kindly
given up the morning services in tho
Methodist church, tho new Presbyterian church will probably bo
crowded in tho morning, and all who
wish sonta would do well to go oarly.
Tho church has been handsomely finished and furnished, and prevents a
tine appearance both inside and out.
The new pipe organ, which will bo
used for the first time in tho openinc,
services, i* Bind to be a splendid instrument and worth hearing. As announced by advertisement, Rev. Donald Frai'or, of Victoria, will conduct
the morning and oventng sorvices, and
Rov. Thos. Haddon will preach at 2:*
SO in the afternoon.
Fire at Vancouver.
About 7 o'clock thii morning, nt
Vancouver, a firo broke out iu tho
oven house of a small bakery near the
comor of Carrol and Cordova Btreets.
The tiro quickly spread and tho brigade
was called out, but it was fifteen minutes before the engine began to throw
wator and by that time the Humes hnd
reached Campbell's saloon. The live-
men worked woll, but it was not until
Tilley's bookstore and the central telephone office were destroyed, that tho
lire waa got. under control. The moat
of Mi. Tilley's stock, and the instruments and switchboards in the telephone oflice were "aaved. Tho total
Iobs is expected to reach 820,000, partially covered by insurance. Telephone
communication between Vancouver
and Westminstor was cut oil' by tho
destruction of the central oflice, but
repairers went to work immediately
and it is expected servico will bo restored to-night.
Annexation Meeting.
The city council havo called a meeting of thoso interested, to meet somewhere at Sapperton (the place will- bo
announced), on Wednesday evening
next, and discuss measures for the annexation—not of Undo Sam's pastures
to Canada, that's a matter fnr future
consideration—but of thu suburban
district known us Sapperton to the
city ot New Westminster. This action
is taken in pursuance of tho amendments to bo made to tho city charter
at the present suasion, of the legislature. As is known, certain amendments have been found to bo necessary,
nud it has been deemed desirable at tho
same time to include iu the corporate
limits all that tract shown in tho official
map, a port ion of which still remains
outsido, nud which was originally laid
out as the townsito of Now Westminster. The indications are that the proposed extension of the limits will bo
agreeable to the lame majority of Sapperton property-owners, ns tho change
will bo advantageous to that section as
well as to tho city.

The fivo Chinese arreated yesterday
afternoon on clmrgo of having stolen
good* in their possession appeared beforo the polico mauistrato this morning
and wero remanded till Monday as the
police wore not prepared to go on with
tho case. Their names are Ah Pook,
Ah Jim, Ah Hoe, Ah Pow and Ah Sin.
Ah Jim is tho proprietor of the houso
and pretends to be a washerman, but
this is only a blind as tho place is a
well-known gambling resort, and several complete Chineso gambling out-
fiU wero found on tho premises. Tho
clothes-wringer found m tho house

weeks ago. This ia fortunate aa no
merchant in town seems to lmve lost
tho webs of oloth uneaithed by the
police. Samples of the tweed have
been sent to Vancouver and Victoria,
and it is probable un owner can be
found for them in either of thosodties.
The arrests yesterday weie timely, and
nill make our Celestial friends li little

Frequent raids of houses of this kind

A very pleasant party was given
last evening nt tho residence of Mr. J.
Miiiihi.ml, on tho Esquimalt r_>ad, at
I Ins..d station. Among tho invited
guests was Mr, J. O. Brown, tho popular vocalist oftho Presbyter, un church.
Mr. Drown was not able tu make hia
appearance at tho festive gathering until late in tho evening, but being impressed with the truth of tho old maxim, "Botter Into than nevor," started
for Mr. Muirhcad's hospitable homo at
about half-past ton, taking thu thort
cut along the railway track. The
light of tho moon enabled him to seo
his way clearly and he wan walking
briskly along, whero the "cut" riseato
about the lovel of a man's head, when
hu heard tho whiz of a bullet pnat his
cheek, nnd tho sharp report of a heavy
revolver, fired at him by some ono only
a fow feet away, upon tho bank. Not
a word whs said by the would be assassin, who, seeing that his first shot had
not taken effect, fired a second, tho
bullet throwing up tho gravel at Mr.
Brown's feet. Not being armed, and
roalb-ing the fact tbat delays aro dan-
f[prous, Mr. Brown wisely took to his
loels nnd saw no more of the mysterious highwayman.—Friday's Column.,

Chief ChewatslA's Deaili.
Mr. Moresby returned lust ..veiling
from Ladners where ho went to investigate the death of Jimmy .Too, chief
of tho Chowatsin Indians', who was
found dead iu a canoo on Wednesday.
He has kindly furnished us with tho
following particulars: Jimmy Joe and
an imbecile Indian named Captain
John camo up to Westminster on
Monday iu a fishing boat to sell 10
sacks uf potatoes and do somo trading.
Thoy started back on Tuesday and the
chief was apparently all right then. On
tho depart uro of the chief ft.r Westminster all tho Indians went over to
the Mt_-r.qui.im ronohorio to nltonq a
Bathering of Indians, and on their return the noxt day thoy observed a boat
out on the saudheads which was being
pulled by one man. Thinking it
strange that a boat should bo in that
position when a fog was settling on the
ou the river and the tide running out,
tho Indiana wore prompted by curiosity
to find out who could bo iu it. Accordingly thoy paddled in that direction
and soon camo up with tho boat iu
which was found Captain John, but no
sign of tho chief. John wus asked
concerning the chief and answered he
was asleep iu tho bow of the bunt. One
of tho Indians wont forward and found
Jimmy Joo under a piece of canvas
aud quito dead. Captain John could
givo no explanation and tho boat was
pulled to tho reservation and Mr.
Moresby notified. The chief's clothes
wore torn and a few slight bruises were
found on his throat and face, but
nothing of n serious nature. Mr.
Moresby telegraphed for Dr. DeWolf
Smith and Coroner Ferris, who went
down to Ladners immediately and an
inquest was hold. Tho doctor's ovi-
deuco was to tho effect that Jimmy
Joe died from natural cause..; and on
that tho jury baaed their verdict of
''died from natural causes." The Indians were very muoh against a postmortem examination boing mado on
thoir chief, and it was with great difficulty Mr. Morosby prevailed on thom
to allow it. Jimmy Joe was a sober
and industrious Indian, and was never
known to touch whisky, to which he
had a great aversion.
Sflinol Matters.
A meeting of the New Westminster board of school trustees was held

Victoria, Feb. 8.—Houso opened
at the usual hour, Prayers wero read
by Ven. Archdeacon Scriven.
Mr. Orr rose to correct a report iu
the Colonist, He had been credited
with making a motion not yet introduced,
Mr. Higgins, seconded by Mr, Ladner, moved "(hat an order of the
house be granted for a return to this
house of the rules and regulations
framed and made by a commission of
three persons appointed under the
powers conferred on government by an
aet regulating the powers and procedure of tho supreme court in 1887,"
together with' the amendments otalterations of Buch ruleB and regulations,
if any, that have'been made by the
lieutenant-governor in council.
Tlie attorney-general suggested that
all documents pertaining to the subject
should also bo asked for.
The resolution was bo amended by
the mover and after somo discussion
tho motion was carried.
Mr. Bolo moved the second reading
of a bill to amend the Small Debts Act.
Tho gentleman said that tho present
act was not giving satisfaction to the
mainland. He instanced a caso at
Vancouver which showed tho working
of tho act to bo moat unjust and unsatisfactory. Ho had reason to believo
tho working of the act was most disgraceful, iu Vancouver and Westminster cities at least.
Mr. T. Davie spuke at length against
amending tho bill without due consideration. Vancouver nnd Westminster
would bo placed Ht a very great disadvantage were it not for the Small
Debts Act.
The provincial secretary remarked
that three county court judges were to
be appointed, who would, of courso,
administer this act and thus do away,
to a great extent, with many abuses
that had been complained of. As Mr,
Bole had claimed that tho act was not
working satisfactorily in Vancouver
and Westminster, he (the provincial
secretary) produced a telegram and
letter from Mayor Oppenheimer, of
Vancouvor. Tho telegrnm read as follows;
"Vancouveb, B.C., Feb. 7.
"To Hon. John Robson,
"Repeal of Small Debts Aot will seriously affect  our  merchants and tradesmen.   Act works well  and  is of great
service in collecting small accounts, and
ahould not lie repealed,
(Signed)   "D, Ori'KMiEiMEn, Mayor."
The provincial secretary, continuing,
said that tho above letter aud telegram
wero from Mayor Oppenheimer in his
official capacity, as the representative
of tho city of which he was mayor.
He had alao a second telegram bearing
upon the subject, whioh, however, ho
felt  a little delicacy in reading., as it
expressed the views of Mr. Bole's own
constituents.
Mr. Bole: "Spare mel"
The  provincial secretary thon proceeded tu read a telegram us follows:
"New Westminstku, B.C., Feb. 1.
"Hon. John Robson:
"Don't repeal tho Small Debts Court
Act.   All protest against touching it.
Bolo lias no authority for his action
whatever.
(Signed) "I). S. Curtis, Acting Mayor,
"James Cunnin.j.iam,
"R. Dickinson."
After thu laughter evoked by the
above telegram had subsided Mr. Bole
denied that the telegram expresaed tho
wishes  of  the  people.   The signers
were disappointed supporters of tho
government at the last election aud expressed their own views as those uf tho
entire community.
Mr. Orr moved, seconded by Mr.
Ladner, thnt the reading of the bill be
deferred for six months.
The attorney-gone.rat advised tlmt
tho matter be referred to a special committee. A thorough investigation
should bu made beforo the repeal of
tho act was attempted.
Mr. Dunsmuir said that the act
worked well in hia constituency. Ho
would support the act in any shape or
form. Abuses might exist but wero
not tho fault uf the aot, but of ita administration. He advised the withdrawal of the bill.
Leave being granted the amendment
and application for the second reading
of tho bill wore withdrawn.
Mr. Allen rose to a quest ion of privilege nnd complained of being mis reported in the .Times of Thursday.
The attorney-general moved the second reading of tno suumary procedure
bill and reviewed lhe necessity for tho
passage of the measure,
Tho bill waa read a second timo and
committed for Monday next.
The house then adjourned till Monday at 2 o'clock p.m.
Among the notices of motion are the
following: Mr. Semlin to move fur a
copy of the correspondence with reference to the opening and continuing uf
the publio schools at Ashcroft nnd
Savona.
Mr. Bolo to move that a select committee, consisting of the Hon, the at*
torney-goneral, Messrs. Mason, T.
Davie, Grant, Baker and Bole be appointed, with power to call for persona,
books and papers and report to the
house on  the working of the Small
Debts Act.
