St. Louis, Jan. 20.—A terrible
tragedy, resultim* in the lynching ot

others, whom he overtook and scoured
tho girls without a conflict. When
near his home he was taken prisoner
by a mob of persons and hanged from
tlie limb of a tree until he waa dead.
Publio sympathy is strongly in favor
of tho lynchers.

Wm. Boothby. a prominent dentist

OFF FOIl SAMOA.
SanFhancwco, Jan. 20.—The U.
S. man-of-war Vahdalia' left Mare
Island navy yard at 4 o'clock this afternoon bound for Samoa.. She ear*
riea thirteen guns and is manned by
2*10 meuw . 	
A oorreipondent of tho Examiner
writes from Samoa: "The Germans
have been circulating a petition for
signatures, addressed to the German
government, asking it to annex Samoa.
All Germans have signed it, of course,
but it is tbe especial desire to obtain
signatures of other foreigners thereto.
Two or throe American aud English
residents who are allied with Germans
and Tamnses'e's party for tho purposes
of pin-annul gain, and who are entirely
ostracised by other Americans and
Englishmen here, have signed the
documents at the bidding of the _ Germans, who will no doubt turn this circumstance to political account. The
news of the attention which congress
ia paying to Samoan affairs was most
welcome to Americans here, but
prompt and vigorous action must be
taken or it may be loo late to avert
what may result in the loss of many
American Uvea and muoh property."
SUICIDED.
San Fbanoisco, Jan. 20.—Advices
from Honolulu state that Wm. Daniels,
chief quartermaster of the V, S. ship
Alert, committed suicide on board ship
on Jan. 10th while temporarily insane,
by cutting hia throat from ear to ear.
SPECULATION DID IT,
Melbourne, Jan. 20.—Advices report tbe arrest of George L. Onyons,
confidential clerk of the National Bank
of Australasia, in that oity, for defalcations aggregations two hundred thousand dollars. Onyons lost the money
in outside speculations.
ON  A CRUISE.
New York, Jan. 20.—Tho U. S.
cruiser Atlanta, Capt. Howell commanding, sailed from Brooklyn navy
yard to-day to join Admiral Luce's
squadron.
A WISE CAPTAIN.
Nbw York, Jan. 20.—Tho State
Line str. State of Nebraska, which
sailed hence for Glasgow on Friday,
returned to day to repair the riveting
around her stern post, which had become loose, causing the veuel to leik.
Oapt. Braes says ho could have made
tho voyage without danger, but decided to avoid puBsihlo criticism by returning for repairs. Thu steamer will
probably sail again to-night or to-morrow. Tho 100 passengers remuin on
board. They havo had no occasion for
alarm and have been in no danger.
rilEAl* DECORATIONS.
Rerun, Jan. 20.—On tho occasion
of "Ordensfest" to-day the Emperor
conforred 1500 decorations principally
to military men.
UNFAIR   TKBATMENT.
Nbw York, Jan. SO—About 100
Alsatian men, women and children,
who were steerage passengers on the
str. La Ohainpsgno from Harve, are
detained at Castle Garden pending an
inquiry as to whether thoir esse comes
under yie contract labor law. They
nre bound for Florida where they are
to havo houses and tobacco plantations,
owned by a New York cigar manufacturing firm, the firm agreeing to buy
the tobacco they raise.
IHPENDIWl  QUESTIONS.
Washinoton, Jan. 20,—The coming
week will see the conclusion of the
tariff discuasion in the senate, and
probably the passage of the bill, There
seems no question now in the mind of
anyone of tho adoption of the senate
aubstituto with auch modifications aa
may bo offered to-morrow. One of
these will probably be a reduction nf
duty on lumber from $3 to $1,60.
There may be also a alight change in
the wool schedule.   Mr. Platt'a com
mittee on territories will likely report
a disagreement to the house on amendments to tho bill for the admission of
South Dakota and the bill will go into
conference. It may be discussed at
somo length, however beforo it is acted
upon.
BOULANOBR's CHANCES.
London, Jan. 21.—Although the
chances of Boulanger's election tothe
deputiea from the department of Seine,
next Sunday, are infinitely hotter than
those of any other candidate, they are
much less favorable than they were a
few days ago. Tho Patriotic league
will give him its unanimous support,
but the action of the freemasons nnd
trades unions in resolving to oppose
him will draw from him a great ninny
votes which have hitherto boen regarded us certain to be cast for him.
The independent conservatives have
nominated M. Etionne Lamy, formerly
a deputy for the department of Jura,
and it fa expected that hia candidacy
will help Boulanger somewhat by
drawing votes away from M. Jacques.
MORE FAY FOR WILLIAM.
London, Jan. 21, — In spite
of the powerful opposition which
has been manifested agaimt the
proposal, the German Federal council
have agreed to support the principle of
an increase in the emperor's personal
allowance. The expenses of the
kaiser are gteatly in excess of those nf
his grandfather, and are steadily becoming larger. The Emper«r William I. was possessed of an enormous
fortune npon which he drew freely to
aid in defraying his,personal expenses,
but that fund was dispersed at his
death and the present emperor has
comparatively nothing except sums
coming from tbo treasury wnich are
inarequate to hia needa.
THE FASTEST AFLOAT.
London, Jan. 21.—Messrs. Harland
& Wolff, tho Belfast Ship builders who
have just completed the White Star
steamship Teutonic, express their belief that she will prove to be the fastest
vessel afloat. The greatest possible
pains were taken in ner construction
and her lines were altered several
times in the effort to render them perfect
THE BI-METALLIC LEAGUE.
London, Jan. 21.-The Duke of
Richmond & Gordon has accepted the
presidency of the Bt-Metallio league,
the affairs and aims of which organization are prosperous and promising.
MARINE MONSTERS COLLIDE.
Liverpool, Jan. 21. — While leaving the Mersey yesterday, the
steamship Wyoming for New York,
came into collision with the French
Sir. Henry IV.—The stern of latter
vessel was badly damaged and she was
towed to Liverpool. Bows of Wyoming were store in and she returned to
Liverpool today.
A TERRIBLE FIOIIT.
Fobt Worth, Tex., Jan. 21.—Sher
iff Richardson of this county at 11,90
o'olook last night received a telephone
message from' Graham, iu Young
County, to the effect that while a deputy U. S. Marshal with a posse of
Graham citizens was escorting the four
Msrlow Brothers and Pierce and Buck-
hart to Parker County jail, the prisoners boing indicted for four murders
and 8 oases of horsu stealing, a mob of
thirty citizens attempted to secure the
prisoners and lynch them. The marshal und put-so defended the prisoners,
when a terrible light took place. Two
of the Murlow boys and four of tho
Posbo were kilted at tho first tire. Thu
fight continued and another of tho
Mnrlows and Pierce wero wounded
and another ono of tho citizens mortally wounded. The prisoners Pierce,
Msrlow and Buokhart escaped but all
are said to be wounded. Tho fight
took place two and a half miles from
town. It is not known how many of
tbe mob wore hurt, A largo posse
was made up at Graham and started in
Knrsuit of the fugitives and the mem-
era of the mob. Sherifl Richardson
added the sheriffs at Henrietta, Ver*
mon, Wichita, Cisco, Abiline and Colorado eity to his posse. The fight
took place at 10 o'clock last night,
THE BED EAGLE.
Berlin, Jan. 21.—At the festival of
the Red Eagle the emperor conferred
the ordor of the Rod Eagle of the
second chase, with oak foliage, upon
Count Arco Valley, German minister
at Washington, and a similar decoration, with ribbons, upon Herr
Fiegel, German consulate-general nt
New York.
A HUMAN FIEND.
Laclede, Mo*, Jan. 21.—Mrs. Ma*
liuda Hall, a widow and four small
children were murdered Saturday
night by the woman's cousin, Joseph
Howe, a school teacher. Howo set
fire to the residence nud his victims
were burned to death. The murderer
was tracked in the snow to Brookliold
nnd nrrcBted. Ho will likely bo lynched.
M01IK1KR AllAIN   ATTACKED.
BMLIN,J*in.21. —Cologne Gazette has
extracts from tbe Gefibkon letters in
which disrespectful remarks have boon
made about Emperor Frederick
and the present Kaiser. Tliu Gazette
declares that ccrtiin interesting and
important document*, affecting Sir
Roger Morier lmve not been dunlt
with because their publication would
compromise the interests uf the slate.
Tho value of tho goods entered foi
consumption in December was 8(1,822,-
000, and the duty collected on them
$663,000. This; is exclusive of Brit*
ish Columbia. Tho circulation in
December was $10,032,000, a considerable increase over November. The
exports Inst month wore 85,340,000,
including the produce of other countries, valued at $226,707.
A story has been sent to Ottawa to
the ministerial papers to the effect
that Hon, Mr. Laurier, liberal leader,
has issued a circular to hia followers
in tho house of commons, stating thut
the party was to go back on the policy
of unrestricted reciprocity. The state*
ment ii a pure falsification. The liberals have taken heart from Thursday's
big victory in Joliet County, which
never aent any but a conservative to
Ottawa.
The liquor license commissioners
have instituted criminal proceedings
against H. Webb, claiming that lie
supplied wine and othor goods things
used at tho recent banquet of tho Toronto board of trado, which was attended by tho governor-general, Premier
Macdonald, and many others scarcely
loss notable peraonapes. It is'claiiued
that Webb should have a license before undertaking to supply liquor refreshments.
THE LAST SHOT.
A Monster Meeting in the Oddfellows Hall on Saturday Night
Hears the
WOULD-BE    ALDERMEN
Fire Doable-Shotted Promises
of What They Will Do
When Elected.
SOLID FOR RAILWAY
Are the Whole Sixteen, though the
Sleeting Doubts the Sincerity
of Some of Them.
SPICY STATEMENTS
Aud Marvellous  Figures Add to
the Enjoyment of the Cheerful Audience.
A ROAST OF BEEF
Costing Only Two Doliars, Provides Substantial Entertainment for 600 People.
Tho meeting called for S'lturdny
night at the Drill Shod, to allow the
public generally to ascertain the sentiments of the would-be aldermen, was
so largely attended that it was found
necessary to adjourn to the Oddfellows' Hall, which had the double advantage of being weather-proof and
considerably more spacious, - The audience was good-natured in the extreme and took the privilego of laughing at anything offered by the speakers
in the way of a joke,
Mayor Dickinson was elected chairman of the meeting, and was heartily
cheored when he mounted the platform
along with Mayor-elect Hendry, who
wai also equally favored. Col. McGregor was chosen t<- act as secretary,
The mayor asked the candidates for
election to take a seat on tho platform
which they did amidst the cheers of
the audience. The following candidates
were present:—Messrs, Lord, Webb,
Reid, Cunningham, McPhaden, Her*
ring*, Scoullar, Jaques, Aokerman,
Curtis and Wise.
Messrs. Townsend and Ovens came
in later and took their seats with the
other candidates.
Mr. Webb was the Drst called on and
after reading his address to the electors
Baid:—"Now, gentlemen, that is my
platform nnd if you havu any questions
to oak 1 am here to answer thom. 1
have been asked over and over again,
'Are you solid for tho railway)' Now,
to show you whether or not 1 am solid
for the railway I will tell you what I
did for tha railway and let you judge
for yonnmlvon. 1 **tin*ii'L.r I h-iv* J&OO
towards bringing the C. P. R. into
Westminster and I will tell you why.
At that time the mayor and some other
gentlemen camo to me and asked if I
would sell two lots on Merchant's
Square and thereby help the railway
cause. 1 consented and sold ono lo*
for $400, aud now Mr. Draper asks
$1,500 for tho lot next to it. The
other lot I Bold for 8300. Parties came
to me and advised me not to sell, for
by holding on I oould make $500 more
out of them. But I said No! I want
to help the railway. Now, gentlemen,
am I solid on the railway question ?
Are there many men who would do
that? The next thing is the other
railway. I believe the Southern Rail*
way is coming into New Westminster
and I will do all in my power to bring
it in. But aa you all know I am an
obstructionist—that is, I obstructed
tho money going into the wrong channel. I am in favor of the railway and
solid for it. Aa regards water I think
it can be brought in at a small cost to
the eity. We can get a good engineer
from England or elsewhere who can
draw out tbe neceaaary plans, etc and
also float the scheme on the money
market in suoh a way that we would
only have the interest to pay and in a
short timo the revenue from the water
rates would repay the whole. The exhibition must receivo strict attention
and we must make it the best ono ever
held iu the province. An athletic
park must also bo provided for the
youth of the city."
A voice—"Sign tho bond."
Mr. Webb— "1 am not in the habit
of putting my name to anything I do
not seo dearly through and I have
been informed tho bond is not worth
the paper it is written on."
Mayor Dickinson said ho had received n telegram from Mr. Edmonds
who was detained in Victoria, but
would be home on Monday, whon he
would bo pleaaed to answer any question.-.   (Applause).
Mr. Curtis spoko next as follows :—"I will endeavor to cover
tho ground briefly, beginning with
railroad matters. Tho railway is the
uppermost question in all our minds.
My stand on tho question is to bring
the railway to New Westminstor nnd 1
believo it my duty to get it here on
tho agreements, the mure 1 am convinced they arc the best which could
have beon arranged (cheers.) AU thut
is tobe dono now is to soo that they
are carried out properly and this I Hill
do if elected. The next question is
water, good aud pure. The right
scheme has not yet been laid before
the city, but whon a scheme favorable
to the oity is put forward I will give it
my support as far aa the finances of
the city will allow. A market is of
much importance and this I have recognized for aeveral yeara. The farmers muat havo the ohance to dispose of
all their produco in Westminster, and
I will endeavor, if elected, to see that
a market, either publio or private, is
established  this yoar.    The  upper
Eortion of the oity stands in need of
otter firo protection and I think the
engine ahould be placed in a more
central position—aome placo in the
upper centre of the oity, thus giving
the whole community a better protection againit fire. Taxation is a question wnich haa been discussed. The
'ticket' is only solid on railway matters, on other affairs we are not pledged and I do not know how the members of it think on taxation, I havo
some figures on taxation which I will
read you later. I believe New Westminster is the most shabby oity you
will find anywhere, and I think it
should be spruced up as much aa possible. My platform is 'progress' and I
think it is time that we braced up and
did something in the way of improvement. I am not strong on a eity hall
but I think we should have something
better than an old barn to meet in. (Applause).
Mr. Ackerman waa called on and
came up to the scratch smiling. "I am
not, said he, in the habit of making
political speeches. I could not help
thinking to-day that most citizens
muat have been greatly amused at the
smiling faces of the candidates as they
walked the streets. For a year
many ofthem passed you by without no*
tico but suddenly thoy have evinced a
wonderful interest in your health.
Some people have told me that being
a Yankee would cause my defeat, but
1 think a littte Yankee posh will not
hurt Westminster. My platform
is 'progression' and proaperty for New
Westminster.' In regard to street
thoy are, aa Mr. Curtis ssid, in a bad
condition, and, if elected, I will aee
that the money appropriated for them
is well expended, the work finished
and not skimmed over. On the pub*
lie market I am a crank. This matter
baa been neglected through lack of en*
terpriso on the part of the merchants.
If they had founded a market where tho
up-river fanners might havo sold aU
their produce, and had not even mado
one cent profit out of it for a time, it
would by now have been a psying institution for tlio city aud we would be
holding the trade to-day which, has
gone elsewhere. Wo must have ;a
market if we wish to attraot the farmers. Iu regard to the coming exhibition wo must make it a success. The
farmers assisted ub in getting the exhibition and we must do our best for
them. Hailway matters seem to be
tho most important. I am pledged to
the railway scheme to the amount of
$1,000 and 1 am for it I think you
are capable of choosing nine good men.
I do not want to squeeze in through
tbe galea by 'plumpers,' I would
rather be defeated than be elected that way. If elected-1 will
do my beat to cut down law expenses.
(Cheers). I believe a contract was
mado for a certain portion of the city's
law expenses for the,, sum of $600,
but a bill for nearly $5,000 extras haa
boen sent in—worse than a contractor's bill for extras. I built a 'houae
for Mr. Bole last summer ind 'found
him honorable in every ws*f,. but he
waa very careful as to ascertaining coat
of extras before they were put in. If
elected I will deal with the kwytn
and all others exactly in the tame
way. (Cheers). If elected my course
will be straight—I will not straddle
the fenco. This puts me in mind of a
man who happened to fall th**ou|h a
brieve but before striking tne water
called 'Good Lord, good devil, save
mo.' When safe on shore again someone aaked why he used'' this strange
expression; ho replied that ho did not
know into whose hands he waa going
to fall. That ifnthtflray some of our
aldermen have done. I read a Vest in
The Columbian to-night tallying the
names of the 'ticket.1 After reading
it I thought it would be best tfl let
The Columbian deposit this list in tno
ballot box on Monday and we might
nil stiy at home. (Applnu e). By
Tuesday some of the saw bucks wuuld
be up and some would be down."
Mr. Jaques was called ou next and
responded : ''I have got very little to
Hp.y. If elected, I will see that there
are more Btreets and sidewalks constructed ; the present condition with
regard to these is a disgrace to the
town. I do not think that we should
raise uny moro money on the city'a
credit; we must raise money on the
property directly benefitted. I don't
believe in people paying for their sidewalks any more than for the streets,
but believe that the sidewalks ought to
be paid for out of the special debentures tax. Waterworks ought to be a
municipal affair, if there is any revenue in it, the city ought to be entitled
to it I ahall endeavor to get water
in here as a municipal undertaking. I
think that wo require more fire en*
ginea. I am solid on the railway, and
in favor of seeing the by-laws and
rements oarried out to the letter.
Lord taid the bond wu no good.
I think it ia; the railway company are
satisfied with it. There are a good

when I came back I wu very much

he came out; he aaid "I have U much
right to rnnu yon have'(Laughtor).
I hope tbat Mr. Edmunds will be
among the left ones. X don't think
that we need go over to Vancouver to
get aldermen; we have enough men
in Westminster." (Applause.)
Hr, Lord was loudly called for, and
said: "I didn't come out In a crowd,
and I have not made any great promises, but I come before you now.
There haa been a great deal said about
Lord; he has been villified, and he hu

Mr. Job. Armstrong—"Your Worship, wo don't want a repetition of the

HOW TO VOTE.
The largo number of spoiled votes
at every eleotion is largely due to
haste in marking the ballot or to
an incorrect idea of where the mark
should be placed. In order to givo
voters generally the exact method
required we print the form of ballot
paper whioh will be used to-day,
and place a cross opposite the
names of nine candidates. The
cross must be distinctly made and
ahould be wholly within tho lines,
opposite the candidates' names for
whom tho vote is intended. Any
cross on the lines spoils the whole
ballot, and on this point voters
should observe the greatest care. It
will be noticed that the crosses on
the annexed ballot form are placed in
front of the names of the candidates
who represent the popular ticket, and
no voter will be astray who marks
the list as below given. Only nine
candidates ean be voted for, if more
the ballot is spoiled.

As stated on Saturday evening,
we considered tho present occasion a
fitting one on which to issue a morning edition of Tim Columbian, in
order to give the municipal electors
a full report of the meeting on Saturday night, ut which candidates for
aldermanic honors aired their views.
Elsewhere in this paper will be
found a very full and accurate report of the same. We also give
some additional facts and pointers
for electors, which it is hoped will
not be lost sight of. Last night's
despatches, local and other news,
will also be found in our columns
this morning, A large extra edition
has been issued and distributed free
to regular subscribers and others
throughout the oity. All thia has
entailed extra expense, and we hope
that a number who receive these ex
tra copies; and who have not heretofore taken Tug Columbian regularly, may be induced to do so at once.
I)y doing so they will not only furnish themselves and their families
with an evening treat, combined
with instruction, but will be patriotically furthering the interests
of their city and province at the
same time, as in no way can this be
better done than in assisting to build
up a live, progressive and patriotic
press. This Columbian, incompari-
non with tbe other daily papers in
this provinco, will be found second
to none in overy respect—a statement whioh we aro safe in making
because an intelligent and impartial
public is tho judge—and it is the
intention of the present management
to keep well abreast of the times,
and, if possible, a little ahead—
which we believe is one of the prerogatives of the press. We thus
confidently andrespectfully ask tho
hearty support of the publio, and
especially of the citizens of West-
minster—the old royal oity—which
shall ever be first in our affections
and endeavors.
On Saturday we promised to cite,
from the new city charter, clauses
throwing light upon the question!

from such particular year from tho surplus income of any work, or from any
shat-o or interest therein applicable to
the sinking fund of tho debt; and (4)
any sum derived from the temporary investment of the sinking fund of tbe oity,
or any part of it, and carried to tho credit of the special rate and sinking fund
accounts, respectively, amount to more
than the annual sum required to bo
raised as a special rate to pay the interest and the instalment of the debt for
the particular year and leave a surplus
to tho credit of snob accounts, or cither
of them, then the Counoil may pass a bylaw reducing the total amount to bo levied under the original by-law for the fol*
lowing year, to a sum not less tban the
difference between such last-mentioned
Burplus and tho annual sum which the
original by-law named and required to
bo rained by special rate.
The satisfactory nature of the abovo
section as it relates to the point referred to, will bo conceded by the
reader at once. We stated on Saturday tbat the rate of taxation, 14
mills, authorized by the ferry and
workshops by-laws, would continuo
to be levied for the fifty years on
the value of tho city's ratable
property, according to the last assessment. Such would have been
the procedure under our old ebartor,
but under the new act it is quite
different, and even much more satisfactory. Tho section quoted beiow
speaks for itself:
45. The Council of the oity shall, in
each and every year after the. iinal revision of tho assessment roll. pas. a by-law
for levying a rate, or rates, on all tbo
real and personal property on the Baid
roll, to provide for all tho necessary ex-
pusses of the city, as well tha payment
of every such sum, or sums, as tho city
shall be liable for during the current
year in respect of any debenture or other
debt or obligation, and also such other
sum or sums of money as may be found
expedient: Provided always, tbat the
rate to be levied in any year, in addition to what is required for payment of
intereat on outstanding debentures, and
the amount required for a sinking fund
therefor, and for school purposes (if any),
shall not exceed tho sum of one and ono.
third cents on the dollar.
It will thus bo seen that a new
assessment is to be made every year,
which will affect not only the ordinary taxation, but all current debenture levies as well. To apply
this to the Southern Bailway debentures: On the present assessment of city property, every ratepayer will have to pay 14 mills on
the dollar. Immediately aftor the
next assessment, tho rate will bo
very appreciably reduced, as tlie
city's limits aro extended by the
new charter and improvements taxed
also. The ratepayer*, too, havo the
very gratifying prospect of having
the 14 mills rate reduced by every
annual assessment, us thu extent
and value of rateable property in
the city increases—which it is certain to do rapidly—so that long
before that much abused "fifty years"
bus been spun off the reel of time
the railway debentures rate will
have become so attenuated as to be
almost invisible oxcept through
"injunction" spectacles. We congratulate our oitizens on tho
prospect.
If one thing more than another
wu. duiuunalmted at the immense
public meeting in the Oddfellows'
Hall on Saturday night, it is, that
tho Southern Bailway project is
becoming more and more popular.
All tho candidates declared in favor
of tho scheme—whether sincere or
not, is another question. From tho
first, the Westminster Southern
Bailway has been a citizens' affair—
a fact which the injunctors apparently forgetting or overlooking, has
led to the most of their ill-judged
opposition. As such, The Columbian has given it a cordial support, believing that the arrangement made was the best that could
bo obtained by the city, looking to
a speedy connection with the Pacific Coast system of railways south.
Before giving this support we took
the pains to enquire into all the details of the scheme, and whatever
we have said or done to aid the
project has not been with any intention other than for the general good,
notwithstanding that a few individuals have not been slow to impute other motives. That there has
been a deoided opposition to the
scheme from tho outset by the same
few individuals is well known
(miBTEEN—nn unlucky number—
voted against the by-laws in the first
plaoe, it will be remembered), and
while some of this opposition may
have been with the best intentions,
we share tho general belief that a
good deal was due to a chronic anti-
progress sentiment, and a fraction,
it is to be feared, was prompted by
outside hostility. However, now
that the city has been committed to
the scheme, and that by tho practically unanimous vote of the people-
confirmed over and over again on
every publio opportunity—it remains for the electors at the polls
today to still further bind the bargain, and in this respect as woll as
in others to assure a healthy growth
and progress for our royal oity,
by returning as aldermen for the
ensuing year nine good and true
mon who can be depended on to
stand by the oity, to intelligently
understand ite wants, appreciate its
advantages, and further its prosperity and welfare in every respeot.and
who, with Mayor-elect Hendry, who
has been wisely returned by acclamation, shall constitute a civio board of
which New Westminstor shall have
every reason to be proud. Although
all the candidates profess to be
"solid," it remains for the electors
to use their judgment and cast their
votes accordingly, avoiding as much
as possible "plumping" and "splitting." We do not intend to advise
further in the matter. As to the
first "ticket" announced as candidates for aldermen, we repeat what
we said at the time, that we believe
the city would be safe in their
hands, They are understood to be
a unit on the railway question, and
on other questions affecting the
welfare of the oity we believe they
could be depended on to riot with
prudence and for (he genenl weal. j
Sinco this ticket was announced,
however, some good men have bee-
brought out, and while we still hold
tbe same viows with regard to the
first nine spoken of, wo rcalizo that
it remains with tho majority to say
who of those that have been nominated shall direct the destiny of the
city for the next twelve months.
With theso few remarks we rest the
case.   Bon jour.

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Electors of Nexo Westminster City:
Ladies ahd Gentlemen1,--
At the request of u number of frlomls I
havo consented to placo my name In
nomination for the position of alderman
at the coming election, fully realizing tho
Importance und duties of the offlce. If
elected I will endeavor to the best of my
ability, to place our city in the front rank
of the cities of 11. C. The following Important questions will have my careful
attention:
1. Railway.—1 will use every legitimate
means In my power to bring to a successful termination the building and com-
{iletlon of the Southern Railroad, und will
real liberally any projected railway
which may wish to run Into our oity,
always carefully guarding the best Interests of the city. And Ills my opinion
If we aro truo to ourselves and bury any
little differences that may exist and work
shoulder to shoulder, we can make New
Westminster tbo greatest railway center
and most Important city between Seattle
and Alaska.
2. water Supply.—I am ln favor of tho
city owning lta own watef works, for there
Is a very largo revenue to be derived from
this source, it properly conducted, andjf
elected, I will at once take up tlilsquestlon
and deal with It on business principle!",
Water rato debentures when issued, near
their own value and will not be ono doi
lar's tax on the ratepayers.
3. Sewkbage.—This Is one of tho most
Important questions that the now council
will have to grapple with, and, ah there is
bound lo beu large emigration here this
yonr.it behooves us to bo alive and get
our city well advanced so its to keep away
thoso dread diseases which wu su mercifully escaped lost yenr. Aud I lmve uo
doubt If you i-Ieot the right mon nscheme
can be got up whereby tlio city can be
-iiropi-i-lysevi'i'red.aiid the revenue derived
'rom i ho sale of water bo inndip to pay tho
Inieii'si nnd sinking fund for both water
works and sewerage.
•I. Sti-ei-.ts—Something mu-st ho done
at once ti> open up all street1-In the oity
so as tu give workingmen and mechanics
a chnnipc to got to their lots and buildings,
nml, If elected, I will give this subject my
careful attention and hearty support,
.1. City Halt,.—If nny proposition Is
brought forward for tho orection of a suitable city hull, and if the finances of tho
eity will allow It, I will glvo It my warmest support.
6. Street Lighting.-I will favor the
extending nnd improving of our system of
street lighting, for thero Is no doubt It will
stand considerable improvement.
7.1'Aitkv-In order to make the coming
agricultural show a success wo must put a
portion of the city park In a tit condition
with suitable building-, etc. If elected I
will do my boat to inuko the grounds a
credit to the royal city. I am also In favor
of removing tho unsightly stumps on
Albert Crescent nnd planting Mew shade
trees to replace tho stumps. Nature has
done much for our city nnd It only wants
touching up a little to mako It perfect.
8. Public library.—Thore is no doubt
a new building Ib wanted to replace the
delapldated one now occupying a valuable lot, and thore Is no doubt In my mind,
but that a suitable ono could bo erected
with stores underneath nnd library nbove;
and tlio rents from said stores would more
tban pay for Interest and sinking fund,
and leavo a balance for keeping tho library ln proper condition.
9. MANUPACTURKB8.-I will encourage
any manufacturers thnt contemplate starting business ln this city, treating them
ln a liberal manner, and will uso every
effort to ihow them the advantage of doing
business here. It Ib well known thnt manufactures are tbe backbone of any city.
10. Communication*-.-- will urge npon
our representative the necessity of the
Dominion government subsidising aldally
boat between hero and Richmond and
also between here and Ladners Landing.
We must also get better connections with
tho surrounding district.
11. Letter BoxE8.-I will also endeavor
to have the postal authorities supply and
put in place letter boxes In tho suburb*
of the oity.
12.1 will also urge on our oity member
the necessity of having tho local government place a sum of money ln this year's
estimates to put the North Arm road ln a
fit condition for travel.
18. Street Nahinh and Numbering.—
If elected I will urge upon my colleagues the necessity of having our streets
properly named and buildings numbered,
ns is always done in well-regulated oities.
In fact, any project that may be brought
up for advancing the interests of the city
will have my-, -ireful attention and hearty
support,
I remain,
Your Obedient Servant,

THE GIFT OF SPEKCH.
' Why Men   and   Women   Grow
Wrinkled and Care-Worn.
A Lady Writer's Astonishing Theory—She
Tries  to  Prove  That Ute  Power  of
Speech Ii at the Bottom of Most
i Misery.
X
Not long ago our old cat passed through a
levere domestic affliction, writes "Amber"
in the Chicago -Mount. She lost five as
handsomo offspring as cat ever lay claim to
within tbe sixtieth fraction of an hour. Yot
thore she lies upon hor cushion, as sleek, as
)lacid, and seemingly as happy as though
ior departed babies were by her sido.
There is not a day but some c-ruaturo of
the brute creation endures trouble which,
If borno by men and women, would reduce
endurance to its ebb. Horses are weighted
with heavy burdens, lashed with cruel
whips, left standing hour after hour by unsheltered curbBtonos. Thoy aro suffocated
' In nose-bags, tormented by rudo boys,
> starved by stingy masters nnd ovorcbecked
by wanton dudos. And yet wbo ever beard
of a wrinkled and haggard horse 1
Innocent and nddle-pated chickens are
cooped in close quarters, carried head down-
: ward by tbe logs, thrown Into vile-smolllng
: and airless underground holes, jostled over
, stony roads, and yet Bet tbem free and fivo
minutes after tbey are as placidly amazed
and as idiotically consequential as though
thoir life had yielded nothing but ripe oat-
fields and moist chicken feed.
If any thing created ever knew anguish
the sheep has sounded the plummet of possible despair. Worried by dor's, caught and
sheared by clumsy bands, turned loose upon
- tbe hillside ln Its shorn condition to prove
i the fallacy tbat any one up aloft tempers
| tbe wind for such poor creatures; decoyed
to the shambles aud hit in tbo bead by
' bungling butchers; and yet who ever knew
' a sheep to bear in Its face tho token of life's
many vicissitudes! Are thoy not veritable
types of sorene and lovely composure and
| supernatural equanimity!
The average woman begins to ebow lines
, about her mouth before she is out of her
teens. At thirty she is hollow-eyed, at
, forty wrinkled, at fifty haggard, at sixty a
. crone. A man to whose lot falls a little
more tban the average share of earth's
trouble, is broken down aud ready for the
grave boforo he is fifty, and ton to ono goes
', out of life in the wind of bis own desperate
bullet In thinking the matter over I have
como to the conclusion that the reason wby
humanity- bears marks of suffering unknown to tho brute creation's greater experience of suffering lies in tho gift of hu-
i man speech. Bestow upon the afflicted cat,
the tormented horse, tho long-suffering
chicken and the iunocentsbeop tbe power to
voice their complaint, and rot ail it to listen
ing ears, and the wrinkles, tbe white hairs
and the sunken cheeks would follow sure as
, fate I It is because tbey oan not talk things
.over that they escape tbe branding-iron of
ipecial torment. Something happens tous,
and we give ourselves no rest until every
friend and distant correspondent knows it
'and drops in to condole with us. If tbo
darling baby dies we feed our bitter sorrow
with contributions from every outside quarter. Tho minister keeps tbe knife turning
in the wouud by dropping in occasionally to
comfort us and pray with us. If sick*
ness enters the home, be it trivial or serious, It becomes the absorbing subject of
ronvernation with every one we meet. If it
is a cold we toll ovor all the symptoms; if It
Is a fever wo dilate upon the suffering; if it
is a broken limb or a terrible accident wo
gloat ovor the details.
If special disaster overtakes us and we
aro bankrupt cither in gold or faith we
italic, and talk, and talk the matter ovor
with every friend we bave until every repetition loaves a wrinkle. When we salute
ono another in tbe Btreet it Is always:
"How do you dot" referring to tbe body
ind not to the soul. Tbe leading idea of tbo
salutation is: How are you as to the per-
shing part of youf Have you any aches
w pains! Any influeuaor,org|_l__Hpfa^
Ibout you to-day! Just u Simple Simon
-_k«d the pieman for a taste of bis wares we
lay: "How's the time to trot out an ache
sr a nice little affection of the lungs or
liver if you have them about jfou.V Our
lalutation should be as tothelflmt. Wo
should be more concerned with the welfare
of the immortal part of us tban with the
welfare of our bowels and of our digestion.
I am hardly prepared to say that tho gift
of speocb is a curse, but I think that I am
justificdin saying that tho misuse of it re*
.touuds to our everlasting confusion and
distress. A backbiting tongue certainly
' iocs more mischief ln tho word than sealed
ps could ever work. The man or woman
who assalU the fine and delicate fabric of
■haracter with brutal speech is more to be
treaded tban tbe tough wbo sandbags his
victim. Any ot ub would rather be
knocked down than to dwell perpetually
with a nagging tongue. A brawling woman can make moro contention than any
tber created thing unless it is a guinea
'wn or a peacock. A brutal word hurts
nore than a blow. You can heal a physical
hurt, but then is no balm for a heart
bruise. A word is not like a kite. You
•an't draw it buk with a string; once
.poken it is like a bird let loose from a
_ge, it will never come back and be
locked behind tbe bars of forgetfulness
Again. Would it not be a good idea, then,
io much as is possible, to forego idle gossip
.bout troubles that can't be helped and to
resolve to be mute where we can not say
pleasant things! Sympathy is necessary
to us all, but sympathy carried to an excess
is like the overuse of opium, it weakens
ibe fiber and dulls the spirit Too much
chattering about troubles that must be enured rather tban cured will end in making
weaklings of us.' The way to get along in
tbe world is to keep our breath aud our
strength for the battle-field and not waste
■t in idle chat about the camp-firo. The
nan wbo talks Is never the man who does.
The time that the gallant Sncridan put in
n riding down to Winchester would never
bave Immortalized his name bad bo do*
iicendcd from his horse and talked tbe situation over with every straggler ho met

the disease will remain with the Indians till it has run its courso.

there is no proper provision in the bylaws, and we must go on for fifty years
paying tho same taxes on tho railway

elected, I will assist to cany out any
measures that will benefit tho city.
Mr. Shiles—"Why did tho injunctors try to quash tho by-laws t"
Mr. Lord—"They did not try to
quash tho by-laws; there was no such
application."
Mayor Dickinson — "The papers
served on the council stated that the
action was brought to restrain the oouncil from dealing with tho debentures,
and also to quash the workshops bylaw."   (Applause).
Mr, Shiles—"1 would liko Mr. Lord
to explain that."   (Applause).
Capt. Scoullar was called for and
camo forward amidst applause. He
said:—"Mr. Chairman aim gentlemen,
this iB tbo lirst time 1 havo addressed
a largo audience, and 1 ask a fair hearing. You bave read my address; that
address has received considerable
abuse, but I notico that nearly all the
other candidates havo adopted about
the samo platform. I have been in
the town for some ten years, and havo
always beon to tho front in enterprises
for the advancement of tho city. 1
went in with other gentlemen and put
money in the woollen mill at a timo
when it was ropresontcd to bo languishing and Mr. Lundbom said to me
tlmt it was in danger of boing taken to
Victoria. Wo put 80,000 iu it, and it
is in a flourishing condition." Mr.
Scoullar here referred to the oxtonsive
building operations ho had engaged iu
in the city, and continued; "I um prepared if improvements are taxed to
pay my taxes (applause). I am in favor of improvements of all kinds, but,
of course not to rush faster than wo
can go at first. I consider that Westminster has tho best position commercially of any city in tho provinco.
Speaking about taxation, our assessment as a city is ridiculously small; it
injures the credit of our city. Business-men, Boeing tho small figure of
our ratable property nt the banks in
tho cast and in London, thiok that
Westminster is a village of about 800
inhabitants; I was tola ao bya gentleman from the eaat, who was surprised
to see such a large and thriving place
with such an absurdly small assessment. Wo ahould have au assessment
really of at least $3,000,000. You
know 1 have taken a prominent part
in tho railway; I have spent considerable money aud a groat deal of time.
We had a hard timo to get tlie necessary stock taken up to save the char-
tor, and tried to get many of our citizens to take Btock, among them, Joo
Armstrong, that declined. If we had
not succeeded, the city would havo
lost the charter, and I am surprised at
the abuse that we have got from some
of the citizens. If there is any citizen
now that wants stock, wo are ready to
share it with him. 1 consider I am as
good a business man as any going, and
if elected I am going in for pushing
the town ahead. I am not going in
under false pretensions.   (Applause),
Mr. Huiiing was called upon and
said: "Liko Capt. Scoullar, this is also
my maiden speech beforo a public audience. I am independent; I belong
to no party but that of honesty and
right, I have had to stand alone, I am
sorry to say, on tbo side of right, in
tho counoil, on some occasions. It is
a baso falsehood to say that I am opposed to the Southern Railway. Look
at my intorest. bore, and tell, mo if I
can afford to be opposed tothe railway. Mr. Scoullar talks about hii
buildings; I think I ean point to a few
buildings also. I built the opera house,
as you all know. I would not have
built it if I had not looked ahead and
expected the city to advarie'e1 as a result of tho Southern Railway. I have
never opposed the railway except on
two occasions—when Sheefe & Co. attempted to secure tho debentures, and
when the trust committee was appoint
ed. I was satisfied that tho council
had no right to appoint that committee. If they had taken my advice, it
would have saved thom somo law ox-
ponsea. If elected, I will givo my
honest and hearty support to tho railway, which is tho life of this city. I
am in favor of all improvements that
will help tho oity. We can lay the
foundation of those that wo may not
bo able to carry through. I ask you
to elect me ou Monday, and I will
work in the best interests of the city.
If not elected, I shall continue to do
the same.   (Applause).
Mr. Shiles—"If you aro elected,
will you vote yourself on three committees? Would you pursue tho same
course that you have in tho past with
regard to the folders V
Mr. Herring— "The financo committee did the boat they knew how in tho
matter of the folders."
Mr. Shiles—"When ono gentleman
offered 850 and another ono 8100 to
advertise in the folder did you not object, and nt tho same time work in an
Advertisement of your own ?"
Mr. Horring~-"That is the first time
I have heard it. Any man that tolls
you that he offered me any money to
put an advertisement in the folder is a
darned liar."   (Sensation).
Mr, Wise was next called and spoko
briefly: "I do no** think it is necessary
to go over what three or four have already gone over. If you elect me, my
first itep will be to get the railway carried through in tho best possible way.
(Applause). It is necessary that wo
ihould hnvo wator works and also
sewerage. I will give my attention to
tho public park. I will alwayi bo wii*
ling to carry out everything to tho
best advantage so far ns thu finances
will allow. I am in favor of the market and will go in for starting it With
regard to the present council, I do not
approve of tho way they havo carried
out a great many things, but I believe
they have done the best they could.
If you elect me I will two and have
less law and more improvements,
(Laughter and applause).
Mr. Thos. Cunningham was the
next candidate called out, and he apoke
as follows: "Mr. chairman and gentle*
men, I am lorry I have to appear in a
rather disabled condition, (In explanation, Mr. Cunningham appeared
with hii arm iu a sung from a sore
finger). It is rather unfortunate tbat
I lmve had an accident, 1 have not
boen able to solicit a vote in this election. It wai oharged against me in
Tub Columbian that I was nn unwilling candidate. While I would be if
everything wai running smoothly, I
fool it ii my duty to oome out at this
time and work for the city. Thb Columbian correspondent stated that we
wanted volunteers to servo the city.
You don't always find that the volunteer who is io anxious to serve hii
neighbor! ii tho very best man for a
publio poiition. He ii very likely to
nave aome ulterior motive. It ii the
hardest thing in the world to get hon*
est men to touch politics. Thii buiineu of writing anonymous communication! ii a bad ono. The man that
attacks his neighbor in this way ii a
scoundrel. I have lived fifty yean
and have never written an anonymoui
communication.   Thero  hu boon a
good deil of shuffling here to-night.
Some inon have tried to mako you believo that they are the moBt earnest
advocates of tho railway, but they did
not put their names on the bond."
(Applause). Mr. Cunningham then
started to take up the injunotors'
pamphlet, but Mr. Curtis said he
would do that later ou. Mr. Cunningham: "I want to get a slap at
these injunctors, but 1 will leave it to
Mr. Curtis. My record is clear on
tho Southern railway scheme. For
five years I havo boon working on that
railway scheme. I do not regret it I do
regret that some misguided men (Laughter) are thiowiug obstacles in the way.
We must make the city an attractive
placo for peoplo to live in. Viotoria
has profitted much from such a policy
and we can learn a lesson from her.
The time ia not far distant when we
shall export lumber, fish and fruit in
groat quantities, and all experience
goes to show that success in exporting
products must depend upon competing
routes. Wo must have competing
lines, if wo sro to reach the markets
of tho world—if it does cost something.
(Great applause), Don't bo frightened
about this fifty years business; thero's
nothing in it; you can't eat your cako
and koep it too. Now 1 can calculate
this way. A roast of boef is a good
thing lor dinner. I buy a roast of
boof, which costs me 82. In fifty
yean, at compound intereit, that beef
will cost 811001 (Laughter). I could
have bought 10 cents worth of corn
meal and filled my stomach, but I prefer the roast beef, because it's just
what I want It furnishes mo with
strength; it braces me up; it helps me
to raise a family. (Uproarious laughter, nnd long continued). Don't lose
sight of the fact that tho injunctors
tried thoir very best to quash tbe b**-
lawB. When they lay they are in
favor of the railway you cm moot them
with this." Mr. Cunningham here
made a calculation to show that the
injunctors had spent more on the proceedings than, if carried out for fifty
years, wouid build the railway, and
elicited muoh laughter and applause.
Mr. Cunningham continued at considerable length, but we are forced to
condense. He was in favor of making
this the agricultural centre of the
mainland, and was sound on street improvements, sewerage and other questions.
Mr. Ovons was loudly called and applauded, and said: "Mr. Mayor and
gentlcmon, I think there is very little
left for nio to say. You havo read my
address; that iB my platform and 1
stand by it. As to whether 1 am
sound on the railway, the citizens'
bond will tell that; I am down on that
bond for 81,000. (Applause). Progress is my motto, I am in favor of
having water—(A voico—'Very little
water will do you, Tom.'—immoderate
laughter) works, and will do my best
to obtain this and other necessary improvements. If elected, I will do all
that my humble endeavors cm accomplish for you."
Mr. Townsend was noxt called
upon. He said: "I have not come
prepared with a speech, but I can tell
you thut if you ohoose to elect me I
will do my very best for the city, I
am not awfully anxious to be elected,
but it is time that some one took hold
to see that all the money does not go
into the hands of the lawyers. I do
not know what you have had, as I
came in late (a voice—'We have had
plenty'—laughter). We want Bidowalks
and other things. I am going to do
my host. If you elect me, I will do
my very best to see that the funds ere
devoted to the best purposes. (Applause).
Mr. Reid was then called. "Make
it short," exclaimed a voice from the
audience. Mr, Reid said: "That is
first what I am going to do. I am in
favor of doing all I can for tho railway. One of tho first things that I
will advocate is the preparing of exhibition and recreation grounds, and it
wanti to be done early—the flrst thing
ln the ipring. (Applause.) Streets
and sidewalks aro the most important
things that wo want in this town today. I know dozens of men, young
fellows, that would buy lots and build
houses, if more streets wero opened
out. The market is a very important
thing; the business men of this town
have lost by not having a market before. Wo are naturally tho centre of
this district, and should not lose any
of our advantages, I believe in encouraging manufacturing industries, as
they help to build up a town. I am
in favor of doing something to get a
flouring mill here. Waterworks and
sowers are very important matters.
Thoy will rcquiro careful consideration. 1 do not believe thoy cm be
taken up this year. It is a fact that
we want waterworks and sewers, but
wo must not go too rash. If you elect
me, I will do all I can to advance the
interests of thii town."
Mr. McPhaden came forward in
amwer to calti from the audience, and
laid ; "I won't occupy your time tonight. I am solid on the railway
question. (Applause). Furthermore,
I am convinced tbat tho water-works
are of great importance und should he
taken up immediately-the sewors
later on. I think we should strain a
point this year to get tho exhibition
grounds put in good shape. We may
not have an opportunity very soon
again to havo the provincial exhibition
hore, and we ihould mako it a grand
success. (Applause). Streets and
sidewalks are badly needed to bring
the business portions of the town
neirer to tbe business centre. If
elected, I shall work to tho best ot my
ability nnd judgment iu the interests
of the oity.   tApplause).
The mayor here read a note from
Mr. Calbick, one of the candidates, regretting that he could not bo at tbo
meeting, on account of sickness in his
family.
Mr, Curtis wai recalled and aaid:
"A pamphlet hai been circulated by
the 'Injunctors' in whioh aro some
wonderful figures, but theso figures
are not facts. Our good friend Mr.
Lord would have it that they are correct and we cannot get round them,
and though I confess to their correctness I will show you the absurdity of
auch figuring. (1). Tho writer of the
pamphlet says there is no provision
made for the redemption of the debentures, but I want to tell you that the
redemption clause could not have been
drawn any otber way, and that as it
stands tho oity has ample protection.
(2). The writer of tho pamphlet says
the lawyers will tell you thit the rate
can be changed to suit tho circumstances, and he goes on to say: 'The
counoil hai just as legal a right to
change olauie 1 as to ohango clauses
3, 4 and 5 of the bonus by-law, and if
they have a right to change either thoy
have a right to wipe them out alto*
gother.'"' Mr. Ourtii hore read a
olauie in the new charter allowing
wherein the oouncil hai a right to
change the fixed rate as circumstances
justify. Continuing, Mr. Curtis said:
"No doubt the writer referred to
thought he was miking a great point
againit tho railway when bo laid before you thii array of figures. I want
to prove to you to-night that othen
are capable of figuring fully as prodigally as he. In the first place, to
show you ths result of such calculations take our assessment roll of last
year of 8862,511 and assume the real
value of real estate to bo 81,000,000
And ah increase of 25 per cent, ab soon
as the railway is finished, for it certainly will increase to that amount.
This would give ub 81,250,000 value of
laud to assess. Take the 8250,000
and invest it every 6 months at 6 per
cent, 50 years, compound interest and
you get what ? 8138,720,000. What u
rich community we would bo I Again
take the 83,000 annual sinkiug fund,
invest every year at 6 per cent, for 24
years and we get 8152,440—or 82,446
more than is required to redeem the
wholo of the debentures. For example take an individual lot worth to-day
8200; with railway an advance of 25
per cent, or 850 on the lot If that
profit on the lot, 850, wore invested every 6 months for 60 years at 6 per
cont thut man would be worth 8138,*
620 and still have the lot loft. During
that 60 years he would pay taxes on
said lot to tho amount of 8110,890.
Deduct this from his 850 investment
and you have a surplus of 827,724 to
get married on. How the increase
of aBseisable property will affect ua this
yoar, I will endeavor to show you. The
present assessment roll is 8802,511;
area of land to bo taken in under now
oharter 400 acres; deduct 80 acres for
Btreets to be mode by owners in subdividing and we have left 320 acres estimated at 8500 per acre gives 8100,-
000. To this add the increase of land
only within the old limits since the
list assessment, say 25 per cont, and
you have 8215,628, thui giving the city
an extra amount of real estate to assess of 8375,028, Baying nothing of the
certain increase on land in years to
come. In this way the railway debenture rate will bo reduced frum 14 mills
to 9jj mills during tho present year."
(Groat applause and cheering).
Mayor Dickinson, in response to
appeals from tho audience, said: "Tho
gentlemen you have heard this evening have made great promises and no
doubt will carry them out if possible.
But where is tho money to come from
to carry out all these schemes ? Our
revenue is only a paltry 810,000. We
are assessed at 8862,000, while our sister city is assessed at something ovor
83,000,000. Our system of taxation
must be changed. Thero is one property owner in Westminster who has u
monthly income of 8250 from his buildings rented and on which ho pays not
ono cont taxes, while the poor working-
men are taxed to pay their share of
the city's expenditure. Now, gentlemen, I ask you is this right 1 (Cries
of no, no). To you workingmen I appeal to give a solid vote on Monday so
that the large property owners of the
front of the town may be taxed to build
up the back part of the town. (Tremendous cheering).
Frantic cries were made for Mr. J.
C. Armstrong, who finally took the
platform. He thought that if the
fifteenth part of tbe promises made by
the candidates wero oarried out Westminster would be rapping at Vancouver's back door beforo the end of tho
year. The promises mado by each candidate were so liberal that were such a
thing poBaible he would vote for the
whole sixteen. He hoped the city
would once again pull together us it
did at tho old drill shod when the C.P.
R. scheme was beforo the people,
Mr. Hendry was enthusiastically
called for and responded briefly. "The
candidates," he said, "have covered the
ground so well that thero is nothing
left for mo to siy. You 'all
know my sentiments in regard to the city's progress, and
you know that I will do all within my
power to advance its best interests.
Water, sewerage and railway matters
will have my hearty support as will also all. matters of importance to the
city. The questions under discussion
thu evening have been woll ventilated
and now I will ask you to elect such
men on Monday as will, iu your belief,
best servo the city's interests, For
my part I will endeavor to perform
faithfully the duties of the high office
to whioh you have elected me, and
when my term is finished I trust to
hold your respect and esteem the same
as I do to-night.   (Great applause).
Col. McGregor was called on and
Baid: "Although it would always afford mo muoh pleasure to be of sorvico
to you, I am not seeking election to
the counoil board just now—perhaps I
never will—nnd even if I wore 1
scarcely think that it would be necessary for mo to to express my views
with respect to the Southern Railway;
the most of you know thom pretty
well. I trust that you will show your
wisdom at tho polls, and elect the most
faithful and progressive men. Do not
canvas to-morrow, but be up before the
lark on Monday morning and, in the
figurative language of an illustrious
North Briton, "Light a tire on all the
little hills."
The meeting then adjourned."
PUBLIC   OPINION
Given   Excellent Medicine te Electors,
Nun-Electors, and oilers.
Under this style Public Opinion hoi
at various times during the lait two
months addressed portinont remarks
to candidates, would-bo candidates,
and injunctors; plainly setting forth
the needed improvements and the
wants of the oity, directing the candidate! as to their courso, it they wish
to sit in tho council chamber, and
forcibly bringing home to the injunctors the actual poiition they are in-
defeated. And now we propose to
mike a few utterance! and aaiertioni
to elector! and non-electors. First,
then, to the electors: Excitement at
a crisis like the present runs high, and
while you, in tbe heat of tbe contest,
might bo influenced by partlei who
would fain aave the strain upon your
pooketi ai taxpayers, you muit remember your duty as citizens to your
oity and families; that you have to
lay the foundation upon whioh ihall
rise to eminence the prosperity of our
city, and, if you should not reap the
benefit, your children will, You must
not quietly remain at homo to-day! not
caring how things go, or - feeling indifferent ai to whether thing! are
changed or not You owe your correct
vote in the interest, not only of your*
silf, but of future genentiom. Then
comei up from every part of the oity a
continual cry for a never-failing mp-
ply of pure water, and equally urgent
u the necesiity for a thorough system
of drainage, in which disease cannot
lurk ready to leize the populioe unaware! and carry bright memben of
familiei and society to the tomb. Your
natural reiources of trade of the fertile valley of the Eraser must be conserved, a market established to tram*
aet the buBineis of thoio who come
irom above and below the eity to vend
their produce, and, jointly with thii,
a council chamber and offices appertaining to a oity hall muit be built;
io that we oan alwayi have a place in
whioh to hold not only business meet
ings of the council but ratepayers'
meetings as well. Then, it ia no uso
getting up in church meetings and bewailing that the boys and young men
of the cily are frequenting saloons, or
are enticed thore by the more convivial
surroundings than you havo given
thom : it is for you to see that the
mon you vote for will aid in establishing publio recreation grounds, where
their manhood may bo strengthened,
and a pleasant public library and reading room, light, airy, comfortable and
enticing, whore their minds may be
improved. You cannot—you must
not—plead that you have done without all these things. Your forefathers
did without the steam engine and
electricity ; you would bo in a sorry
pickle without them to-day, and you
eannot afford to drive the riling gen*
esation away to cities where they om
have these, their rights, supplied to
them. See to it that each candidate
you vote for promises this recreation
ground and publio library. And then
think of the humiliation of having to
direct a stranger to two streets baok
of Mr. So-and-so's, or opposito or next
door to Mr. So-and-so's, instead of to
No. 37 or 38 Mary or Columbia atreet
—don't forget this important item—
and then, laat bilt not leut, while the
question that interests us most is
practically settled, soo that you vote
tor no man who did not think enough
of tho interests of the oity to sign the
citizen's bond to the railway oompany;
because, if they will shirk their
duty in, this, they will shirk thoir
duty and play wi.lt your interests
in the council, if you mako the unfortunate mistake to oloct them to a loat
therein,   take care you do sot spoil
YOUR  BALLOT   I'Al'ER I    VOTE   EARLY I
vote right I Help those who are
aged or infirm to the poll; call to the
eity those whom you know to be away,
ao that they may exercise their franchise. Dor.'t vote for the man who,
at the last moment, wants to take the
popular view of things; tell him, plainly, you see his little gamo. See that
no moss or cobwebs are hanging to tho
coat collar of the man wishing your
vote—if thero is, don't vote for him.
And, now, don't let your interest in
the right lead you to commit a breach
of the peace, no matter how you nre
taunted; these tactics will be tried as a
last forlorn hope by thoso who would
havo the city retrogade. Now a fow
words to non-electors. You who have
failed to see your names placed upon
tho voters' list, soe to it that you are
not loft in this predicament at anothor
election, liou who are tenants, and
cannot under the existing charter,
vote, aee that you use every t legitimate means to havo the franchise extended, so that you, who hive to produce the wherewithal, may have the
right enjoyed by tenants in any other
city and have the power to vote in
January next, and at this election use
your influence to eloct a "progress
parly;" you oan do a great deal; do it;
for, in the prosperity of the city, lies
your chances of prosperity and tbe
possibility of becoming property owners, instead of, for want of trade, your
having to searoh anew for employment
and a home for your families. And
now, you young follows, you have a
claim upon the city fathers; they want
to see you rise up strong in business
pursuits, morally, intellectually, and
physically able to carry on tho business
many of them have founded, Watoh
tho events as they are passing now,
cling to the ideas arising out of this
struggle for progress, so that when
you become old enough und stable
enough to handle civic affairs your experience now gained may help you und
as you have present needs, of the
recreation ground and library, make
your relatives and friends who have
votes promise only to support those
men who will save you the humiliation
of having to contest for athletic honon
on the macadamized Columbia street,
or of holding converse on the street
corners. Your future prosperity lies
in what is done at the poll to-day;
make your friends lay the sure foundation to that prosperity.

Ladik.. and Gentlemen,—
Having allowed my name to be placed

I Will, If elected, support tho Southern

should keep good faith In the matter, and,
at the same time, that the city's interests
demand that this enterprise should be
pushed without delay.
I believe the new council should deem
It necessary to devlie aud lay the foundation of some scheme to secure to tho city
water worki to be owned by the city, and
also a thorough system of sewerage.
I shall endeavor to give all questions
arising with regard to our municipal affairs a careful consideration before voting
on the same, and shall favor all measures
of progress compatible with the finances
of th| o>ty.
I believe It Is tho duty of the council to
have ln view at nil times the moral and
material welfare of the city.
Iu conclusion, I respectfully ask your
support at the coming election, on Monday tbe 2Ut Inst,
Faithfully yours,
