Seattle, Juno 7.— Tho centre of
tho  business  portion  of   Seattle  is
now nothing but amoking ruins.   At
3. p. in. yesterday   aonio  turpentine
cauj-ht tiro in the basement of a  two
story building on the southwest corner
of Front and  Madison  Btreets.   Tho
building was owned by Mrs. Margbret
J, Pontius and the first story of which
was leased by the   Seattlo Shoo  Co.,
upper floor being occupied for offices,
was set in a blaze.    An  alarm was instantly sounded and tho volunteer fire
department responded promptly,   but
it was impossible   to   mako  headway
with tho tierce flames.   This  building
like most othors of  its kind in the
business eentre, waa not detached, but
was the cornor one of a row of frame
buildings all joined   together and of
various heights.   Valiantly did the department tight the   fire,   but without
avail; the buildings of   tinder wore an
easy prey to what within ten  minutes
from the time it started developed into
a conflagration.   Adjoining tho  flrst
building was tho wholesale liquor store
of Dictz & Meyer.   As soon  aa  the
lire reached it, the barrels of liquor exploded with terrific reports and scattered flaming timbers  far  and  wido.
The Denny   block,   iu   which was  a
wIhjIl'shIo  confectionery,   Gilmore &
Co.'s real  estate   office   und  several
other establishments, including a num-
ber of prufesBionul offices  and  somo
lodging apartments, was soon licked up
completely.   This cleared out one entire square.   Efforts to Hood the Coleman building on Front  street to tho
south were utterly useless,  for the
flames leaped acrots  Madison  Street
witti greedy rapidity from two saloons,
tlie Palace saloon mid the Opera House
saloon, and in lees than thirty minutes
another squaro was burned  to  ashes,
taking in  Addison   Smiths' grocery,
Merchant's  wholesale    confectionery
and fruit  stoic,   J. W. Lung & Co.'s
drugstore, John   Spencer's plumbing
and steam titling establish meat, R. J.
Graham's tailor shop,  Edgar Bryan's
pawn shop,   the  Palace  restaurant,
Simpson Bros.'s shoe store, Gterhig &
O'Duunel's  jewelry   store,   Slmstcr's
barber  shop, Levy's  clothing  Btore,
and Maruin'.-  olothing  store.   While
this square was  burning,  the Opera
House block on the east side of Front
Bireet between Madison  and  Marion
and oxtending up Marion half way to
Second street, caught firo in the upper
stories.   This building, a fine three
story brick structure, owned by  Geo.
F. Fryo, and valued at $125,000, soon
yielded to the irrepressible tongues of
flame,    With  it went  tho Seattle
Pharmacy, the warehouso of tho Golden Rule Bazaar, Harris & Co.'s large
dry goods and clothing store,  Abern-
athy's shoe store, Crosi & Co.'s undertaking establishment,   Latour's  largo
dry goods houso,   Boardman's  paints
and oils  establishment,   cleaning up
another square.   The  Kenyon  bloek
tu thu uorthof where tho firo originated
had to go too,   notwithstanding  the
wind was from tho northwest a  little
by north.   In this block was the job
printing establishment of  the Evening
Times,  Vienen  &  Vaughn's   muiic
atoru and  Bode's ;tailor shop.   From
tho Opera House block, the  firo grew
fast, becoming a monstrous holocaust,
swallowing ap the square to the south,
consisting all of two  story  buildings,
and a little later tho  frame occupied
by E. Lobes, Golden Rule Bazaar, the
California    clothing   house,  Gordon
Bros.'s largo tailoring  establishment,
tho Oriental Bazaar and  several othor
largo concerns.   Notwithstanding the
progress of the flames, the department
struggled fiercely, determined to save
the most valuable   portion  of  Front
stroet to the south betweon Columbia
street and Yesler whicli was one magnificent row of fino brick buildings of
two and three stories, where four banks
hud their otficrs.   Tho bank of Commerce,  Merchants    National,   First
National, and  Washington Guarantee
and Loan Association   Savings Bank.
This row consisted of tho cornor blook
occupied by Tokl-ts, Singerman & Co.'s
gigantic wholesale dry good**, etc., emporium, tho Union Block,   tho Poncin
building, the San Francisco clothing
houso, Star block, tho Arcado building
and the Vesler building on Occidental
square, the telegraph office  being  in
tho last named.    It was naturally supposed that the entire wator front would
go, but it waa hoped if such wns inevitable that   these  buildings could   he
saved.   Tho Safe   Deposit Company
also liud a block in this row.
FttUITtESS EFFORTS.
Explosions of giant powder wero
fruitless to prevent the awful spread of
tho relentlessGomraorrahan-liko Bhcets
uf flanio and elouda of blinding aud
suffocating smoke. Onward tho conflagration wont, crackling, roaring and
almost shrieking. The three story
building to the tear uf Toklas, Singer-
man *fc Co 's, in which was Welton &
Co.'s sail factory was au easy prey to
thu terrible heat and eindors from the
Commercial Mill and Lumber Yards.
Tho fire waa soon communicated to
Toklas, Singerman & Co.'s; the water
wns giving out and the streams from
the several lines of hose barely reached
the second stories. Tho Tacoma fire
department had como over from Tacoma in 02 minutes on the Puget Sound
Shore Railroad, but both departments
combined wero powerless. Attempts
to blow up the Union block were more
disastrous to the valiant fire fighters
than anything else. All this row of
buildings succumbed, although the
occupants had time to get out with
their most valuable effects. Tho squaro
to the north gave way to the fire easily,
nnd soon tho roof of the three story
Occidental Hotel, the finest hotel in
tho city got ablaze. Tho fearful hol-
Hcaust reachod Yosier avenue, and Toklas, Singerman & Co.'s, Chilberg's
wholesale grocery, the banks before
mentionod, Treen's shoe store, Humphrey's book store, Lowman & Han-
ford's book, stationary and job print
ing establishment went to ashes. On
Yeslor avenue, the Western Union,
Paoific Postal and Puget Sound Telo-
gruph Companys were burned out, also
thu building of the Daily Post Intelligencer nnd the office of the Canadian
Pacific Bailway Co. Tho luwyers and
doctors, who mostly occupied these offices, were burned out, although they
were mercifully allowed enough timo
to get out libraries nnd other valuable
personal property.
TRUSTED TO SAFES.
The banks locked up their currency,
coin aud papers iu the tire proof vaults
and safes and left them  thore   to be
spared by chanco or to bo destroyed
with the doomed city.    When the Occidental hotel burned down, the Puget
Sound National Bank, with offices on
the flrst floor, made the fifth bank to
suffer.   Tbo Butler building, in whioh
were the offices of 0.   H. Kittinger,
John Leary and the Morning Journal,
and which was just north of the Occidental, communicated the flames from
the burning district tu the hotel.   It
was a  threo  storey  frame  building.
The Evening Press oflice  was  in  the
third storey of the handsome  Ye**ler
building.   The Gordon Hardware Co.,
and tho Seattle Hardware Co., wholesale houses, were in the row of brick
buildings.   All that could be dono
when these buildings succumbed and
the water gave out completely was to
try to r»ve life and property.   People
fled to the bills to the east and horses
flecked with foam dashed  up  to  the
highlands with promiscuous loads  of
everything, attached in every available
vehicle.   The fire made awful progress
when it crossed Yesler avenue.   Down
in tho water front quarter and extending to  Fourth  street,   the buildings
were mostly ono or  two  stories  and
frame, although the Korn block, just
opposite    the    Occidental,   the  uew
Nuwliu building, hardly completed, on
Commercial Btreet, the Squire block,
corner of   Second aud  Main  streets,
stood out prominent as tine tiew brick
buildings.     The  flames rushed  and
leaped with  terrific   madnot-s giving
people barely timo to escape.  The fine
water front, including all the wharves
and docks, the coal bunkers and  the
railroad tracks, tlio wholesale quarter
and everything south of Union streot
and west of Second, reaching arouud
to the gas works on Jackson, was completely burned.   The Arlington and
Commercial hotels were destroyed, also
the coal bunkers of  the Oregon   Improvement Company, the docks of tho
Oregon Railway and Navigation Co.,
the tracks nf the Puget Sound  Shore
and tho Columbia and  Puget  Sound
railroads, the big new  warehouse  of
the Seattle transfer company, the Mechanics mill,   the  branch agricultural
house of Stuver und Walker,  and  all
thu corrugated iron commiB->iou  and
wholesale warehouses along the water
front, also Stetson and Posts haw mill,
but to give a list of everything burned
would bote  reproduce moat of  thu
'Seattle business directory.   It is estimated that the total loss to the city in
buildings alone is fully 910,000,000
and all tho   personal losses will probably be $20,000,000. Whether there is
mueh loss of life cannot yet be  ascertained.   The city is guarded by sentinels of the militia.    Two  fiends  are
said to have been hung for stealing.
Heaven was merciful that the Are was
allowed to occur in tho daylight;   the
flames and smoke ascended to a clear
sunny sky.   Thousands of people are
left destitute and will Bleep,  if sleep
they can, to-night under tho  canopy
of heaven.   They huvo done thoir best
to save a few of their goads.   Many
persons must have lost their lives, but
who can tell who they aro.   The lodging houso quarter and tho slums of the
city wero swept out of existence.
BUKNINQ DEBRIS.
There aro now no streets iu the
burning district; it is all burning debris, with a few standing walls. Tho
Pacifio Postal Telegraph Company had
connection with the wires soon aftor
tho office wub vacated, placing a table
on tbe open street. The offico is now
moved into tho framo building used as
the office of tho Moore Laud Co.
Dexter Horton & Go's Bank was on
tho corner of Commercial and Washington Btreets, and like the othor
banks only its «afe remains, whatever
the contents may now be. The Pacific
clothing house, also the New York
clothing house, were among tho large
concerns to be completely destroyed.
A committeo hus boen hard at work
up to the time of the fire soliciting subscriptions for tho Johnstown rtifierer.-.
About $5,000 was thought to have
boen raised. The magnificent Boston
block in which was tho post office is
snved. The Canadian Puciflu docks
aro gone andneurlyeverythingfromthe
head of Elliott Bay to Union street.
The Yesler Avenue, Jackson and
Front street cubic lines and t.lte ulec-
trio motor line aro useless, Their
tracks are badly demoralized, and
many of their curs burned. The electric light plant is burned, All the oil
warehouses are gone. The survivors
of this fire will suffer toriibly for
want of the necessaries of life. Those
whosu homes and placcB of business
are spared are generous tn their offers
of help to the less fortunate. When
the Toklas and Singornian building
fell, about thirty people weru near it
and many of them were crushed.
Similar accidonts befell most of tho
large buildings.
THE LOSS OF LIFE.
Auy estimate nf the Inss of lifo
would be simply guess work. Words
fail to describe the awful picture of
fire nnd desolation. It is liko tho
Chicago flro and liko Chicago, tho city
will bo rebuilt. Everybody scorns in
good spirits, e* it is hard to realize
tho dreadfuluesB of their sudden
calamity.
HEAVY LOSEltS.
Tho Seattle Lake Shore and East-

trackage and depots, and $300,000 in

Two patients arrived from New

not from the Times office.—Vancouver World. There were two unfortunates sent up to the mainland last

parties referred to. Only one of them
was from the Times office; the other
went out of Iub head in the shebang
around the corner. Tho country will

Editor Columbian.—Sir, Your comments on express fish rates lately, will
bear ventilation. With characteristic
fervor you abuse tlie C.P.R. when that
corporation lias nothing whatever to do
with the matter. The Dominion Express Co. is responsible for its own rates,
and in this instance applied a general regulation adopted recently by all express
companies, but the regulation was withdrawn in this distnet, upon representations that it would cripple tho trade,
Yours -to,

[The Dominion Express Company stock
is hold entirely hy the C.P.R., or, more
properly speaking, by the shareholders
of the C.P.R. Not a cent of the Dominion Express Co. stock is held by persons
who are not interested in the C.P.R., and
therefore it cannot be much less than a
C.P.R. institution. Tho company is not
under the diiect management of the C.P.
R. directorate, and that is probably the
only difference between the  two.—Ed.]
BUTCHERING  CHRISTIANS.
London, June 5,—The anti-slavery
society is in receipt of a letter from
missionaries in Abyssinia, in which is
depicted a fearful state of affairs in
that country. ^ These letters state that
Mahdist fanatics have made a desort
of western Abyssinia, and rendered
that entire region wholly uninhabited.
Thousands of native Christians havo
been butchered, thousands of others
dragged in slavery, and all the flocks
and herds in the oountry destroyed.
Men, women and children have been
indiscriminately put to the sword, and
thoso only spared in whom the cupidity
of their captors saw profit in the slave
market. The missionaries complain
that the treaty of Mecca, by which
they were guaranteed protection, und
under which slavery was to be suppressed, is utterly disregarded. The
anti-slavery society will bring their
discloaures tn the attention of the government, and urgo active intervention
for the suppression of the inhuman
traffic in human beings and punishment of the perpetrators of these
fiendish outrages.
DISGRACEFUL SCENES.
Paris, June 5.—An exciting scene
occurred in tho chamber of deputies
to-day whon Ferry rose to apeak on
tho education budget. The members
of the right rose us ono man and shouted and shrieked until they became
hoarse. Ferry remained standing in
hiti place, cooly waiting for nn opportunity to bo heard, but his enemies
kept up the cry: "The blood of the
Tonquin dead choke you," while insults of tho coarsest nature wore hurled at him fast and thick. When the
angry deputies had quieted down somewhat from sheer exhaustion, Paul do
Ciissagnuc rose, and with a contemptuous nod in tho direction of tho ox-
premier, snid: "Let us submit to thia
infliction; let us listen to this bour*
geios, Vondean deputy." Than facing
the president, who was all tho timo
shouting "order! ordor!" he Baid:
"We swallow our disgust Mr. President, let bim talk," Ferry thon proceeded with his speech.
TASCOTT IS IN CHINA.
San Fhancisco, June 4.—Tho
C7i roiiick to-morrow will print a statement that William B, Tascott, the
murderer of Amus J. Snell, the Chicago banker, ia now in Canton, China.
The discovery of his present residence
is said to hnve been secured from Mrs,
Gantz, who arrived hero from Chicago
about two months ag:>, and who claims
to be the deserted wife of Myron
Gantz, formerly connected with a Chicago piper. She says she also lived
with Tsscott as his wife. A Chronicle
reporter represented himself as an advance agent and made himself exceedingly agreeable to Mrs, Gantz, who
Anally grew friendly enough to say it
wns Bhe who aided Tascott to cscapo
from Chicago. She says Tascott waa
secreted m hor houso two days, and
then two weeks in u house of; her selection. She then assisted him to
reach St. Paul, and about a month
after tho murder he went weat by rail
to Portland, Or., thenoe to British
Oolumbia. A few days Inter he
sailed on a Canadian Pacifio steamer to
China. Mrs. Gantz claims to have recoived a letter from him in China.
THE OAKS.
London, June 7.—The race for the
Oaka stakes was won by Abbess, Min-
tho second and Seclusion third. The
Oakes had a flue field of 12 starters
and was a very exciting race. The
result was a genuine suprise. The
Abbess de Jouarre was most heartily
cheered as much for her owners sake
as for herself. Minthe, who came in
second, was the favorite in the betting,
and Seclusion, third, had hardly been
heard of. The betting a^Xhe r-Uf-v
was as follows:—20 to 1 against Ab-
bees, 0 to 4 on Minthe, 10 to 1 againat
Seclusion.
SAMOAN AFFAIRS.
Sydney, N. 8. W., Juno 7.-The
German steamer Lubeck has arrived
here from the Samoan Islands. Sbe
sailed from Apia Bay on May 28th.
She brings the news that owing to the
expected arrival of tho Sophie and the
coming of othor German cruisers, the
war spirit was manifesting itself among
the natives again. Mataafa bid gathered together 3000 of his men near
Apia and Tamasese was encamped at
Atna with two thousand. There was
no war ship in the harbor of Apia, and
the natives were consequently under
no restraint. Moreover nothing had
been heard there of the progress of negotiations at Berlin, and the lslandors
were uneasy. Tho Nipsic was at
Tut ilia taking on coal for her voyage to
Auckland with tho Olga. The Rapid
had gone to the Figi Islands.

London, June 7.—The leg and foot

AFFAIRS AT JOHNSTOWN.
Johnstown, Pa., June 7.—Though
so much remains to be done here still
in the way of clearance of the wreck-
ago rubbish, it was clearly seen during
a walk this morning about this distriot
that considerable progress hsd been
made. Of course the work for the
present is devoted simply to an endeavor to make the place fit to live
in, and nothing in the way of rebuilding can be done for some timo. Workmen are coming here rapidly enough
to meet every demand in that direction, and in sis great numbers as can
readily be provided for. The sanitary
problem » receiving cIobo attention,
and a careful system of disinfection is
in progreu, though it cannot be perfect as long as the piles of wreck-
ago remain. Despite .the generosity of tho outside public
and there is much destitution
among the victims of the flood, and it
is not that enough supplies are net
coming in but because so mueh of them
can't be used in the present condition
of things. It iB next to impossible to
cook anything, and there ia a demand
for prepared food of all kinds. There
ia much need also of clothing, and
thero are many persons here yet who
possess hardly enough clothing to be
presentable. Women were seeu yesterday dressed in coats and vests and
one man was obliged to do the best he
could with a woman's dress tucked
about him as practically his only
clothing.
SITTING RUU. HYING.
Rosebud Agency, D.T., Juno 6.—-
A report has reached here that Sitting

About 8,000 Indians are gathered at
that point and they are wild with excitement.
THE GERMAN sully.
London, June 6.—News cornea from
Berne that considerable friction hai
developed between the German and
Swiss governments over the recent expulsion from Swiss territory of Ger*
man police official Her Wohlgemuth.
The German authorities at Berlin are
never at their easo if thero is a single
German socialist in Europe without
a policeman to shadow him. To look
after the colony of oxiles in Switzerland, the government officials at Berlin not long since sent Wohlgemuth
into that country, and thia gentleman,
growing restless because hii intended
victims would not promptly make a
move, which would entitle him to
pounce upon them, bribed a Swiss
socialist to go among them to atir them
up. This man, however, instead of
leading his German brethren into a
trap so neatly set for them, disclosed
tho wholo proceedings to hia government, whereupon Wohlgemuth waa
promptly imprisoned. German official influence secured his release, but
he was given 24 hours to shake the
dust of Switzerland from his feet. Thii
it was thought at the time would mora
than satisfy the German government!
but in this the Swiss made a mistake.
Bismarck now demands that the decree of expulsion be rescinded, claiming that the Swiss had failed to observe to tho German the usual diplomatic courtesy. The whole proceeding excites considerable indignation
among diplomatists here who are acquainted with their acts, and Germany
is generally regarded as playing the
part of a big bully towards her weaker
neighbor. This is not the only case
which Switzerland has on her hands,
and a Russian spy wai recently expelled under precisely similar circumstances, and Russia is now also raising
a hubbub abont it. t The picture ol
Germany and Russia uniting their
forces to crush poor littlo Switzerland
would be an instructive one to enthusiastic admirers of monarohial
chivalry.
During the gale, sayi a Quebeo despatch, a batteau, containing two men
named Rheaume and Verrault, capsized. Both succededin lashing themselves to the hull, but Rheaume aoon
succumbed to exposure. Verrault
was rescued, more dead than alive, by
Captain Mercoir and Mate Charbon-
neau, of a passing ichooner, at tho
imminent risk of their lives.

The terribly disastrous firo, particulars of which we publish in our
dispatches   elsewhere, which  practically swept the business portion of
our neighbor city Seattle out of existence  yesterday   nfternoon    and
last night, contains a warning and a
valuable lesson for us.    Just nbout
three  years   ago wo had n notable
illustration of tho wholesale havoc
■which   the   firo fiend is capable of
working when tho circumstances are
favorable, in tho total destruction of
Vancouver in a few short hours of a
Sabbath afternoon.     The   circumstances attending   the   Vancouver
holocaust wero of   course peculiar.
Tho city was of the mushroom order
—a city of wooden shanties—and
surrounded  on threo sides by the
clearing fires among acres of slashed
timber and by burning forests.   It
only required the breath of heaven,
which was forthcoming, to complete
the circuit of destruction, and render any efforts to save tho doomed
town, however well organized nnd
conducted, worse than futile.   In
Seattle, an old established and organized  city, with   all tho modern
tire appliances, the caso wns different, however, and  it  might have
been supposed that something could
bave been done to check the mad,
devouring onslaught of tbo fierce,
quenchless flames; but we read that
early  in   tho  desperate fight the
water  gave out, nud, like nn army
that finds its ammunition pouches
empty in the face of a hot encounter
with the enemy, the brave firemen
and citizens had'to beat a hasty nnd
hopeless  retreat  and devote their
efforts   to saving lifo and movable
property.    A good system of water
works, with nn inexhaustible supply,
is what was needed at tliis terrible
juncture, but it was not forthcoming,
nnd   tho  fire  swept  its swath of
destruction    unchecked.     It   goes
without  sayini"   that no city can
promise itself exemption from such
visitations.   Westminster has had a
remarkable immunity in this respect.
Let  us  seo to it tlmt we do not
tempt fate by remaining any longer
than we  can help in our present
nearly defenceless   condition   with
respect to a really serious conflagration.   The city is building up rapidly.    The interests at stake are in
creasing, and in the samo ratio are
the chances and dangers of destructive fires being augmented.    Westminster   can   bo put in a position
almost   i mprcgnublc   to  firo.    The
ratepayers will have an opportunity
to take a very important step to this
desirable end on Thursday next, by
ratifying at the polls tho very fair
nnd favorable agrooraent which the
oity council has made with the Coquitlam  Water   Works   Company.
\Ve are assured that every mnn will
do his duty, and vote for his storo
nnd  bis home on that important
' occasion.
day of tho season, when thero were
naturally few berries in tho market,
and a correspondingly sharp demand-
but it immediately jumped to 15,
and, without resting there, to 12J-—
just  one-half   tho prico which our
cotemporary  so   unblushingly misquotes—and tho rate will probably
be lower yet.   The "wretched reporters" of the Times havo our most
doleful commiseration if they have
to pay 25 cents a pounul for strawberries, but we cannot spare much
sympathy for the unspeakable editor
that will perpetrate such a whopper;'
ho  deserves  to be charged double
rates for ono season at least, as a
species of moral suasion.   To give ,
our   cotemporary   another   needed |
salivation, wo would  just  remark,
by the way, that the "wretched"
staff of The Columbia**;, what with
strawberries "laid on our table," invitations   to  strawberry  gardens,
tickets   to   strawberry   festivals,
"crushed strawberry" on the erstwhile immaculate summer trousers,
and   cheap   strawberries   in  the
market,     would     gladly    change
places   for   a   week   with   their
famished brethren of the  capital,
so    as    to   try   antl   win   bnck
their cloyed appetites ere strawberries make their exit for tho  season.
Wo can  see   strawberries  in   our
sleop.   We are sick of strawberries,
and wo believe most of our readers
are too, and wish our cotemporary
wouldn't get us started on tho subject again.   Wo have neither time
nor inclination to squabble with our
amiable     cotemporary   about   the
"British Columbia hen" and what's
the matter with its eggs.   We don't
like eggs on top of strawberries—
especially on top of too much strawberries—moro especially such eggs
as our cotemporary so naively admits to "breaking  open with  feelings of tho liveliest   apprehension."
If the egg question was not  one
or such evident lugubriouBiiess to our
contemporary, we could   find  it in
us to laugh consumedly   over tbo
figure which   ho   cuts opening his
"boiled eggs   with  feelings of the
liveliest apprehension."   Come over
to the mainland, brother, and get n
"squaro feed"—-freah eggs, and innumerable etceteras, and slathers of
luscious  strawberries   thrown  iu.
"But it is of no use to discuss this
question   with  The   Colum max,"
concludes the Tunes.    "That paper
is itching for u fuss.   The mantle of
the World's spleen Iia3 fallen upon
it, aud not until some person takes
it in hand and makes it ridiculous
will it leani to   hold   its   tongue."
There is a pathetic humor about this
outburst that makes ib a gem.   We
wotdd'liketofeel how it would seem \
to   be  made   "ridiculous."   Won't '
tho Times  undertake   tho job?   If i
so. will it please call   us   when   it j
gets the caricature,   painted   and
hung?

SERVICE BULL
To be honest, we do not soldom
admire tho articles which appear in
tho leading columns of our cotemporary tho Victoria Times, for a certain   vigor   and   originality about
them, although we may hardly less
often smile at the methods of reasoning used and the conclusions arrived at.   We are right in with our
gifted cotem, in its able articles on
"The  Press aud tbe Bench," etc.
With the true eccentricity of genius,
howover, tho   tVimes flies oil1 nt a
taiigtmt    occasionally   and   makes
some horrible "flukes."   Wo have
hud occasion lo notice somo of these
journalistic vagaries before, and we
are sorry to have to notico another,
and from  tlm same offender,   Tho
Times starts off by calling us names,
"Kew Westminster's virago" is tlio
very pretty sobriquet with which we
are digmlieil ;   but we havo tho internal satisfaction of knowing that
it doesn't apply worth a cent, and if
it pleases the  Times it doesn't hurt
"we." Uut our cotemporary is away
off on "strawberries."   Wo venture
to say, tn tho first place, that if tbo
Times man was on this sido of Plumper   Pass,   he  wouldn't vent uro to
speak of Aldormoii Cunningham'**
gardening as"amatour fruit raising,"
and it cannot truthfully be so denominated either.   Alderman Cunningham is a market fruit gardener
of skill and experience, in addition
to his other accomplishments, as an
inspection of bis well ordered and
kept grounds, will show, and is not
spending his time, money, strength
and skill, for fun, but for solid profit
on a business basis.   Of strawberries, to  say nothing of other small
and largo fruits not yet in season,
he has literally ions, and is nt present  largely   supplying   the   homo
market, besides  shipping to Vancouver (where his product and tbat
of other gardenors in this city leads
tho market over all comers) aud even
to  that  apparently   desolato  and
fruitless (to judgo from the Times'
remarks) spot, Victoria.   As to the
prioe of strawberries, if tho generality of our cotemporary'a remarks
aro made with the same recklessness
and .disregard for tlio truth as the
direct insinuation that 25 cents per
pound is the market rate, what are
we to think 1   AVe aro not sure but

Liberal Nnnntliioltcr,.
The city of "black diamonds" takes
tho bakery and a piece of the street
for liiunilicient liberality in church
matters, in proportion to its size and
wealth. At tho laying of tho corner
stone uf tho now Methodist church, on
Tuesday last, in that city, tho collection on tho ground amounted to §105.-
20. But this was only a ■'sighting
shot" 'is it were, for the devout and
liberal Naiiaimoites got there in great
shape later on. Au exchange says :
At tho evening aervice at the Methodist church in Nanaimo, following the
ceremonies of laying tho foundation
stone of the now edifice, there was a
large congregation. Rev. Mr. Starr
delivered an eloquent aerniou and won
tho sympaihiea of his audience to such
an extent that when the plate was
passed round the respectable sum of
§3,714 was realized, Ono of the moat
touching features of tho proceedings
was that of n littlo child walking up to

Herring'-) Tenement lluiinc.
Herring's Opera Houso will Boon
have its titlo changed to "Herrings
Tenement House," and then tho Royal
City will bo left without a theatre.
The new license by-law haB compelled
Mr. Herring to tako thia step, and ho
is now calling for tenders for tho transformation of the building into a row uf
tenement houses. The new by-law imposes a tax of $100 por annum on all
theatres, and $10 per night on all theatrical companies giving entertainments. Mr. Herring thinks these
taxes will drive away theatrical companies from tho city und consequently
the Opera House would remain idlo
un his hands. Tho building has been
a financial loss from tho start, but Mr.
Herring thinks when it is converted
into a tenement a fair income will bo
derived. The opera and drama in
consequence of this determination will
bu a stranger te Westminster, until
another building is erected, which is
greatly to bo regretted. All tho aoen-
ery with which thu house was furnished has been sold to a Vancouver opora
houae, in which Mr. Herring is interested to a considerable extent,
