NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The New York Graphic «aya:
The Democracy are on fighting
ground, and will hold it for forty
years. They aro not for free trade,
but for such a regulation of the
tariff as will give lal>or a fair chance
with capital. They insist that if
capital is protected labor shall be
proteoted too, and that is nothing
more than good manners and fair

An American exchange is responsible for the following: Lord
Sackville, whatever may be his
qualitiesasa diplomatist, has reached
the highest empyrean of American
greatness. The proprietor of a dime
museum on Eighth ayenue, in all
aoriouBiiess, sent him an offer of $2,-
000 a week to hold daily levee* in
his establishment. As Lord Sackville is out of a job just at present
tho offer may be considered timely,
and the money might tide him over
until he gets into business again.
The enterprise of the average American showman is something unique
and unparalleled.

The Presidential election of eight
years ago camo along about the same
time as the census, and by a simple
comparison of figures, tho ratio of
voters to population was arrived
at. Taking the same ratio for the
recent election, and estimating the
population therefrom, it appears
that tho leading American cities
have not grown nearly so fant as the
"boomers" would have it appear.
Buffalo, for instance, has been figuring itself at something over 250,000,
but the cold logic of calculation
outs it down to less than 228,000.
Tho Globe maintains that Toronto
is growing fuster than either Cleveland, Detroit, or Buffalo, and the
figures referred to seem to justify
its contention.
Says .ili«m'«»: Americans aro
glad to recognize candor cvon in
Englishmen, but it is seldom their
good fortune to meet with such a
bit as the following from the London Spectator: "It is to secure the
Irish vote us well as the ultra protectionist vote, that all tho nonsense
ia written about English intrigue in
favor of Mr. Cleveland. Cannot
Americana understand that if the
world were at stake Englishmen are
too stupid to intriguel" Such a
confession of stupidity is positively
refreshing. All Englishmen, however, are not too stupid to intrigue.
Disraeli more than once best all the
diplomatists in Europe, but then
Disraeli was not a bona fide Englishmen, ns he was a scion of that ru.'-
which is famous for always getting
the best of any bargain.

It is to be hoped that before
another general election, says an exchange, severer penalties may be
placed upon betting on the result.
Tuning a solemn duty into a money-
making job is a far-reaching eviL
The effect is to intensify partisan
animosity and to encourage corruption, aggravating the bitterness of
defeat, and sometimes bankrupting
candidates and their supporters.
The heavy losses in the campaign
just ended are said to have fallen
mainly on gamblers. But the fear'
remains that the winners may continue the chase of the ignis /alum
chance. As an example of the
danger of this growing habit of
betting on elections, two young
girls, residing at a Chicago hotel,
wagered $50 eaeh on Harrison.
That amount was all their savings.
If they had lost they might have
been ruined in more senses than one.
An exchange facetiously discourses thusly: One more consolation
gono I When the little busy fly has
determinedly improved the shining
afternoon by crawling on your nose
with a persistence worthy of Bruce's
spider, it has been something to
reflect on tho teaching received at a
mother's knee as to tbe usefulness
of the little pest. It wns a scavenger, you were instructed, that did
untold good in keeping things clean
nnd thus illustrated the wisdom of
Providence. You may havo hod
Bomo private reflections as to Province's bad judgment in making the
little household scavenger such a
versatile and volatile beast, but you
never doubted the main fact nnd
wero in a measure comforted by it.
But now horo comes a Brazilian doctor who says that in hot countries
flies are the most effectivo agent* in
tho propagation of yellow fever, and
M. Spielniann and M. Haustoutter
attribute the same agency to them
in spreading plumonary consumption
Flies are credited also with being
the chief instrument in the dissemination of Egyptian ophthalmia,
and Koch, the Gorman scientist,
thinks thoy play the same part in
spreading cholera,

London, Nov. 26.—Scares In connection with the Whitechapel murders
increase daily. A lady travelling in *
suburban train yesterday was frialitencd
into fit* by a man carrying a black bag
who attempted to enter the compartment alio occupied while the train was
In motion and nothing can convince
her that she was not confronted by
"Jack the Kipper." In the north of
London lut night a lady', hair wu
severed from her head while she slept,
and a note wa. found on her pillow reading "This is just to show that I am
about." This lady, too, believe, that
.ho wu visited by the Whitechapel
fiend and nono other, Assistant-Commissioner Monroe will without doubt
succeed to the chief commissionership
made vacant by tho resignation of Sir
Charles Warren, notwlthatanding tho
fact that lamcneu prevent, hlm from
mounting a horse. A private person
near Nottingham has received a letter
signed "Jaok tho Ripper's Pal," stating that tho murders were committed
by himeclf and a penon called "Jack
the Kipper." Jaok, tbo writer say., ia
a Bavarian whom ho first met on a ship
while returning to England from
America, and who oxerelsod a mesmeric

him in the murders.

THE PARNELL COMMISSION.
London, Nov. 27.—The Parnell
commission hearing was resumed today. Sergeant Gilhooly, of county
Kerry, who recited the story of Ihe
outrages, testified that he kept * book
to record outrages in. Russell, for
Parnell, demanded the production of
the book. James, the Times' counsel,
■aid the book contained letters and official communications respecting certain person, and it was desirable that
they should not be published. Russell
uked why the Titnei' counsel hare access to tho book and Parnell was denied the ume' privileges. Parnoll's
counaol did not succeed in securing the
book, Justice Hannen suggosted that
the leading counsel on both side*
should inspect tho book. If they did
not agree then the judges would see it.
Other policemen testified concerning
the outrages.

Although the climate of this
"gem of tho west," at all points
nearly, compares—or more strictly,
perhaps, contrasts—favorably with
the climate of any other portion of
the Dominion, as well as with the
greater portion of this continent, if
not of the entire globe, it is at such
seasons as tho present, moro especially, that British Columbians
have some faint appreciation of tho
blessings which they onjoy above so
many of their less favored follow-
creatures. Every day now the wires
bring tidings of howling hurricanes,
fierce blizzards, and raging snow
storms on the dark Atlantic seaboard and in the eastern states,
provinces and territories. Terrible
shipwrecks, with loss of lifo and
property, occur on the ocean. On
shore much demoralization of traffic
ensues a* a result of snow-blockaded
railroads and damaged telegraph and
telephone lines, and before the long
winter is over we shall doubtless
hear numerous sad tales of starvation and death in many eastern
oities, as well as on the wind-swept
prairies of the interior portions
of the continent. Bnt here,
on the b»liny Pacific, how different
is the story. Not that we would
exult over our less fortunate brethren, who, we daresay, with man's
almost miraculous adaptability to
circumstances, find life tolerable even among their disadvantageous environments; but
we would congratulate our own
people upon their happy lot, in this
clime—where November very often
can scarce be distinguished from
April or May, and the real rigors of
winter or tho immoderate heat of
summer is unknown—and would
invite those, who can make it at all
convenient, to come west and share
with us our unapproachable climate,
and other good things, too numerous
to mention.
The Cariboo election for the commons is over, and according to  the
figures published yesterday, which
we received by telegraph, Mr. F. S.
Barnard, of Victoria, has been  returned with a majority  of twenty-
two over his real opponent,   Mr. R.
McLeese, and by a majority of 31
over Mr. S. A. Rogers, who, taking
80 out of the total vote of 298, split
Mr, McLeese's vote in  all probability, and insured the  return  of
Mr. Barnard.   We have not  said
that Mr, Rogers was run  for this
purpose; but we believe that, on
general principles at least, Mr. McLeese should have been  elected to
represent Cariboo in the commons,
instead of Mr, Barnard.   On general principles, we hare said,  for,
other things being equal, or even
unequal, it will be readily admitted
that mainland men should,  whenever possible, be elected to represent
mainland constituencies.   There are
exceptions to this rule,  of  course;
for instance, so long at  the capital
remains at Victoria, mainland men
who happen to be members  of the
government, and, therefore, cannot
well avoid residing at the capital,
need not, foi that reason, be  considered ineligible for re-election  by
mainland constituencies. In all other
cases, however, there is very little
excuse in returning a  non-resident
or island man to represent a mainland constituency.   There has, it is
true, been a good deal of  that sort
of representation in the past, but it
it time a decided change waa made,
There are plenty of good men in the
various districts of tho mainland to
represent  the   constituencies    in
which they live, both in the federal
and    provincial parliaments,  and
eren if better men in somo respects
nre obtainable by going outside  oi
the district seeking representation,
we do not want them, aa a rulo. On
the face of   the matter,  without
particularizing ut all, there it something objectionable about an outsider foisting himself upon the suffrage* of a constituency.     It is
very hard to repress the suspicion
that he has some axe to grind and
seekt to represent himself instead of
hi* foster constituents,    The  Cariboo election of a member to represent that diitrict in the Dominion
houn is not, perhaps, an affair of
the first importance; but, although
the Oaribooites  may  be satisfied
with their member-elect (it might
be    noted   in    thit   connection
that 181 rote* wen actually polled
'for bono representation to 117 for
the non-resident candidate elected),
we believe that they  would hare
insured themselves at good, if not a
better representative, betides adhering to a wiser principle, if the*' had

It is said that a number of the
wiser head* in the Democratic party
are counselling against any effort
to hold a small majority in tbe
house. It is understood that Senators Black and Gorman think the
party would bo better off in tho
minority, and that with the entire
responsibility upon the Republicans
during the next congress tho Democrats will have a much better chance
in tho congressional campaign two
years from now. Tho idea of organizing against the admission of new
states into the union (a pet Republican project) thoy nro said to regard as unpopular and likely to be
hurtful. It would be bettor for the
Democrats themselves, they believe,
to undertake the admission of somo
of the territories this winter. It is
said that President Cleveland himself has expressed an opinion that
it would bo unfortunate for tho
Democrats to hold tho house. Two
years ago it was generally believed
by Republicans that they could
elect a majority of the present congress. There was a groat conflict of
opinion among some of the managers as to tho advisability of making the offort, It was finally
decided that thoy would try only to
reduce the Democratic majority,
and by leaving them the responsibility for tho tariff and some othor
embarrassing questions, lot them
work out a defeat for this year.
The men who advised this course
now plume themselves on its success, it is said, Somo of the Democratic managers remember this, nnd
aro in favor of adopting the same
tactics. With this object in view
it is almost certain that the men
who until recently were eager to
make a fight and get the house, if
possible, will yield to what they
believe to bo better judgment.
The Democrats, it appears, are
not at all abashed or "rattled" at
their failure to convince the tariff
and trust burdened people of tho
United States that a reasonable
measure of free trade would bo a
good thing for their homes and their
pockets, but intend to fight it out
on that line if it takes forty years,
and with Grover 0. as thoir trusty
and doughty champion, too, it
would seem from the following
extract from tbe Now York Graphic:
The tariff iuuo will undoubtedly be
the issue of 1892. Is there any
fair man who doesn't believe that
Grover Cleveland wilt be tho best
man to lead the Democratic principle of tariff reform. Ho inaugurated it. Ho labored for it.
Ho wns beaten becauso of it. It
was not wise for him to enunciate it
so short a timo before the national
election, but that was a pardonable
mistake. Tho Democratic party
believes in tariff reform precisely as
ho made tho issue. It believes in
the Americanism tbat he indorses.
He has sacrificed himself to his
convictions. He has given the
Democratic party more courage
than it has had before in thirty
years. There is not a single word
or action of his that every Demo
crat doesn't indorse with the single
exception of his mugwumpism, and
that is to be excused because of his
utterances and premises when he
was less acquainted with politics
than ho is now. What is the
matter with Grover Cleveland as
the candidate in 18921 Mr. Blaine
was not retired because he waa defeated; and tho foot of possession of
the first office for two terms did not
retire Grant as a candidate. The
Democratic party will win in 1892
on the tariff reform issue, and Mr.
Cleveland is the man who gave it to
them and showed them how to fight
for it. No man questions the
president's honesty or unselfishness,
and four years hence he will be a
stronger man than he is to-day.

I bave used Ayer'a Hair Vigor for a

so stimulated its growth, that I have

Ij  Now that,Owen. Brnen, the notorlou*
|i leader of th* Whyo gang, ha. gone the
way of his predecessors, nnd la cursing
ind raving in hi* atone cell In Sing Sing,
j! it will bo interesting to recall the experience of a New York reporter with thi*
desperado and chief of tousha. It waa an
experience both interesting andexoltlng
.uid not unlike the thrilling occurrences
In the dives of Paris, familiar to nil tho
readers of the "Mysteries ot Paris." In
fact, as the reporter told me the story tho
other day, it presented to my mind a
vivid plotnre closely resembling Sue's
/{'representative of Leopold's encounter
with the fiendish murderer In the ill-
smelling   gin   mill   ln   the Parisian
(.alums,
It  The reporter la reoognlxed as one of the
j! ablest newspaper men ln New York and
I also aa a versatile correspondent, and it
-. wee in large part duo to hia reputation
for plnck and to hi* .kill In adapting
himself to any situation, that he waa selected tor th* ticklish and dangerous
work of interviewing th* worst desperado
lu New York city.
It wa* dusk on a stormy April day
when tho managing editor of the Sun
, enmo to the reporter and informed him of
Piis itairo to publish an account of Bru-
E. iii'a views on any and all questions.
. " "Ask hlm anything," he raid, "and wo
► .will publish, his answer.. Only make
11 .Mm talk."
Tho reporter was prepared to attend a
dinner party at tbo time and was ia evening ili-ras. Ho sought out Police Captain
fMcOullagh and learned .from him where
i Uruen was to be found. It was midnight
{ .viien, having torn himself away from the
social pleasantness In which he had par-
! -iclpated, ho entered tho low dive in nil
II .treet which Bruen made his headquarters, His overcoat was buttoned tightly
j, .'.round his neck, concealing the full dress
.nit and the pistol which bulged hi* hip
v pocket, Ho had come prepared for emer-
| jcncles.
i   Bruen was standing at tho bar drinking
when the reporter entered.  The latter
approached him and touched him on the
•houlder.-
"Bruen," he said, "I want to talk to
I .-ou for a minute where we won't be over-
t.ieurd."
Y Bruen looked at him In donbt bnt
[ Innlly followed him to a greasy tablo at
* which they sat down, r The saloon was*.
'lie den, barely fifteen feet square, and
Pllnily lit by gas which flickered from tho
iroken burners. Tho bar was a dilap-
ilntcil, broken-down affair, tho wreck ot
.dozens ot murderous fights.   The bar
lender wns a desperate looking wretch,
those mouth was besmeared with tobacco
'nice. There were several loungers In the
ilaco who eyed tho Intruder with carious
md uufrleudly glances,
union's personal appearance surprised
I1'ho reporter. He wore olean and well-
[fitting clothes, a seat black Derby, and
-hlte linen. There waa no mistaking the
ough, however. Not over Ave feet, four
nches ln height, he still showed evidence
fit grent strength. Enormous hands, mos-
lvo shoulders and a bull neck wore dls-
ingulshing features. Tbe most prom-
nent of his physical characteristics, however, was a deep scar ln nil chin, the relio
bif a bloody fight.
It did not tako tho roporter long to dls-
over that Bruen did not want to talk,
Ij mt ho wa. thore to have an interview and
ie wns bound to get tt. Ho at onco as-
umed the offensive.
'I don't know what der Sun Is wantin'
er bother me for," said Brnen in surly
espouse to the first question.
"Now don't yon he a—foal," said tho
eporter, "yon want to get It through
'our thick skull thnt the Suit isdoing you
'i great honor in taking auy notice of yon
it all. We or* going ta give you fair
ilny but you don't want to aot liko a
ackaes; understand!"
Bruen winced nnd hia hand traveled
round to his pistol, the butt cf whioh
va* plainly discernible.    The reporter
. intended not to notice hia action but
ontluued to ply Brnen with questions.
"he big hand was almost on the pistol
(hen the reporter brought his own list
: lownonthe tablo with a bang.
*. "You lay your pistol on the tablo, Bru-
,n, and I'll break you In two," he said
■ jiprenively, "{ean do ltldont you know
Vicant"
', Bruen's face paled, his eyea rolled rap-
...diy aud the soar ln his chin, the physical
I aerometer of his emotions, trembled no-
(.Iceably. At the same time hia hand
iiaino back In front again and tho pistol
.emalned undisturbed.   He wu  thoroughly cowed although more than a
I Jintch, physically, for tho reporter. After
hut he answered all questions but Ina
"'runrded way. Several time* he relapsed
'into savagery, but a quick, bold—"You,
on't be a fool," from hia Interlocutor
irough t him baok Into submission.
'You aro too lowfor me to argue with,"
ho reporter aaid onco, "you would only
Ight with a crowd at yonr baok."
When the reporter left it was 1 a. m.
Pe had Moored a oolumn and a halt
ibout Brnen'. dally life, his opinions of
ho great men of tho world, his Ideas of
Morality and the studies and pursuits he
\adengaged In. Ho had learned tbatthe
Vhyo desperado was a coward, who used
is pistol on hi* victim'* back, and also
bathe waa devotedly faithful to Drlseoll,
Is Immediate predecessor ln tho gang's
lership, who waa then In the Tombson
oharge of murder and has since heen
anged, He had fonnd, too, that tho
"-hyo was proud of tha good name of his
Pater, and fearful lest something might
'a. uid againat them.
He had done all thla by putting on*
mid front and by an apparent disregard
'or hi. personal safety. Nevertheless, he
.aad kept ola own pistol In convenient
i jroxlmlty.     CHABUA J. BosiBAUlT.

An Aualyil* Which Hay or Slay Not Be
Jut, bnt Is Worth Thinking about.
In the love of a woman there Is always
a certain element of ohUdishness, which
haaa reflex. If but temporary action upon
her whole nature. The phenomenon Is
due partly to the fact that she is nnder
the dominant influence of a wholly natural Instinct, partly to the faet that tbe
object of her love la of stronger make
than herself, mentally, spiritually and
physically.
This sense of dependence and weakness,
and, consequently, of extreme youth,
remains until ahe haa children. Then,
under tho influence of peculiarly strong
responsibilities, ahe give* her youth to
them, and with it the plasticity of her
nature.
The moment a womanfall* In love, that
moment she becomes an object of paramount Interest in her own eye..
All her lifo she has regarded herself
from tho outside; her wants and needs
have been purelyobjeotive; consequently
she has not known herself, and her
spiritual nature has claimed but little of
her attention But under the Indueiico
ot lovo ntio'plunges Into herself, as It
were, and her life for the time being ts
purely subjective. She broadens, expand.,
developes, concentrates; and her successive evolutions are a perpetual source of
delight and absorbing study.
Moreover, her sense of individuality
grows and flourishes, and becomes so
powerful that sho 1* unalterably certain
—until It la over—that her experience Is
an isolated and wholly remarkable one.
Naturally ahe must talk to someone;
she is teeming with her discoveries, hor
excursions into the heretofore unexplained depths of human.nature; the
necessity for a confidant is not one to be
withstood, and who so natural or understanding a confidant us her lover'
If the lover be a olever man and an
analyst, he la profoundly '.Interested .at
first, particularly If she have some trick
of mind which gives her, or seems to give
her, the smack of individuality.
If heboa'true lover, and a man with
any depth ot feeling and ot mind, lie does
not tire, of course; hat otherwise ho
eventually becomes either oppressed or
frightened; he either wishes that women
would not take themselves so seriously
and forget to be amusing, or her belief In
her peculiar andabsoluteorlglualitycom-
munlcates itself to him, and he doe. not
feel equal to handling and directing so
remarkable a passion.—Frank Lln. j
THE PIOUS RUSSIAN, I
Devotions Seen by th* Trawler In the
Land of tho Csar*
One of the first things that strikes tbo
stranger In St. Petersburg, and'stlll moro
ln Moscow, la the constant crossing that
goes on In the. streets, Whenever a
devout Russian passes a church or a
shrine or a holy altar he lift* his hat and
orosses himself ln the fashion of the Eastern Church.
In Moscow the number of shrines i. so
great and the sanctity of tome of them so
overpowering that It must he difficult for
the devout orthodox to get along tbe
street. IuSt. Fetenburg the number 1.
much less, but it la .till sufficient to keep
your isvostchik's a,ins ia tolerably active
exercise.
One thing puuled cat much. In St.
Petersburg the women very seldom
crossed themselves. For one woman who
would make the sign of the cross In passing the shrine of the entrance;to the
flostlnnol Dvor It wonld be made by a
dozen men. In Moscow the women were
more careful to perform their devotions,'
but ln St. Petersburg the males wero
much more devout to outward seeming
than tho women.
Ot the women who did obeisance to the
holy placeB In St. Petersburg all were
poor. I did not aee one well-dressed lady
cross herself in the streets all the time I
wa* in Russia. Officers and gentlemen
wero not so particular a* tholivostcblk.
and workmen, bnt It was no uncommon
sight to see them making the sign ot the
crosB.
I traveled with Gea. Ignatleff front St.
Petersburg to Moscow. The moment the
train started the General crossed himself
twice, remarking that although you
ahould always'pray, It was especially
Incumbent upon you to do so when starting on a Journey,
The number of shrine, ln Russia where
caudles are burning before holy pictures
is very great, and much greater Importance is attached to the science of genuflexion than Is easily credible to the nou-
ritualistic rover. .
Sunday waa much more generally
observed as a holiday than I expected.
The shops on th* Grand Morskaya and
tbe Nevlskl Frospekt are almost all shut
all Sunday.
St. Petersburg Is not Sabbatarian by
any mean.; It Is mon adayol amusemont
and ot visiting than of devotion, but
thero scorned to me to be a much m'ore ue n-
eral cessation ot labor ouSunday ln Russia
than either ln Germany or la France-

Tno Thieves Captured.
Apart from tho many burglaries
whioh havo taken plaoe in Westminster
during the last six months there has
also been several robberies from shop
doors, whioh though small have proved very annoying to tho merohants.
The police have been working quietly
but steadily to discover tho gang, but
the progress made was necessarily
slow. All suspicious whito characters
wero forced to leave the oity, but this
did not stop the robberies and the police turned their attention towards
Chinamen. All the looso and idle
characters were spotted and a close
supervision of thetr habits was instituted. It was finally discovered that
a small house in the rear of Wong
Goon's store, on Front street, was inhabited by half a dozen of the worst
characters in Chinatown, and on this
establishment the police determined
to mako a raid, Yesterday all arrangements for the raid were completed and
at 8 o'clock this morning tho search
took place. This hour was chosen because of its being a most unlikely time
to make a raid, and the wisdom of the
choice was borne out by the results.
The force was divided, half entering
by Front street and the other detainment from tho rear. Constables
Pearce and Carfy wero the h't-afc to enter the houso and their appearance
was a genuino surprise to the half
dozen inmates it contained. An attempt to stampede followed and
one Chinaman, named Ah Sara, jumped
headforemost through the window carrying glass and sash with him. Constable Pearce was after him in a moment, caught him and a struggle ensued. But the celestial was no match
for the wiry policeman as ho soon
found to his cost, though he made a
good light and left several nasty
scratches and bruises on the constable
as momontoes of tho occassion, At
the instant Ah Sam jumped through
the window another Chinaman gathered up a bundle of clothes and bolted
through the door towards the rear.
Knowing the many intricate turns in
this filthy locality he eluded his pursuers and would havo escaped but for
Constable Dominy who observed him
in the act of placing the bundle under
a pile of old rubbish, To climb the
fence was not an easy feat owing to
its rickety condition so Dominy
made a rush and went head first
through the rotten palings and
landed almost on top of the
Chinaman. Ah Tom tried to roll
down the hill out uf the way but the
constable managed to grab the end of
his queue by which handle Ah Tom was
dragged up the bunk agair, The package proved to contain a quantity of
flannel of a peculnr pattern, stolen from
W. & G. Wolfondeii, and a number of
pairs of drawers and some grey tweed
the owner of which has not been ascertained. When tho two prisoners had
been secured a thorough search of the
house was instituted but no important
discovery was made until the boards of
floor were torn up. Here was found,
stored carefully away in an old oil can,
a row overcoat which turns out to
liavo been stolen from Jas. Ellard &
Co's. Nothing further of importance
was found although the police rooted
deep into the mass ot rubbish stored
under the floor. As the remaining
Chinamen made no serious efforts to
escape, and did not aot in a guilty
manner, only tho two mentioned were
convoyed to the lockup. At the police
court both were committed for trial at
tlio next assizes.
The police are to be congratulated
on the success which attended the raid,
and it is to be hoped others equally
successful will follow.

coats in the store like it; I am certain
the coat produced is the coat stolen
from us; I know the coat was stolen because no one in the store sold it.
Constable Pearce, sworn, said: At 8
o'clock this morning I went in search
of some goods that were stolen; the
house examined was in Chinatown and
thore I found the goods exhibited and
the two prisoners; I arrested the prisoners and brought them to the lock-up;
Several constables were with me; there

room; the goods were found under the
boards of the floor; tho coat wis found
In a coil oil can under the floor and

severe struggle with Ah Sam; he relisted arrest strongly.
Ah Sam made a statement saying he
had bought the drawers which were
found in tho bundle Ah Tom wu running away with; Ah Tom uid his
friend left the goods with him.

That Scott Bond.
Editor Columbian.—Having been a
sojourner on tbe south side of tho Fraser
for a number of weeks, I have had an
opportunity of observing the work which
has lately been done on the Scott road,
about which there has been a little paper
tempest. Robert Gray, who resides on
the Delta side of the road, has stated
that he (throe years ago) did more work
on the road for $100, than has been done
this season, for which the government
has paid $100, and some one who seems
to be interested in some way contradicts
Gray's statement. I recollect very well
the time Gray did the work on this road,
for which he was paid by the two townships of Surrey and Delta, $100. Gray
at the time cut the brush from the
McClellan road to Brown's Hill, a distance of about 6 miles; he repaired the
culverts and cleaned out the ditches,
wherever it was required, to lead the
water into tho culverts. As far as I have
been able to ascertain, only about 4
miles have now been brushed; the culverts have been Improved and repaired
so far as I have been along the road,
but no ditches have been cleaned out so
far as I have observed. One mile of the
worst part of the road {through the green
timber,) hu not been touched at all, and
when I came through a few days ago on
the Blaine stage, the horses were confined
between walls of thick brush, up to knees
in water In many places. Why this part
of the road should should have been loft
untouched is a question; and why the
Sovernment was obliged to step in and
o the work by the day at this late
season of the year is another question;
which should be satisfactorily explained
to the tax payers. This job is another
strong reason why the government
should no longer attempt to do the
work which properly belongs to the district -municipality. If this Is to be taken
as a criterion of the work done by the
government on the publio roads, three*
quarters of the money is thrown away.
It is to be hoped that the legislature will
soon organise county municipalities; and
the government cease to meddle with
local works. J, Kennedy, Sr.
