NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Why not let De Lesseps form a
French cabinet 1 He wouldn't need
much else beside a half-ton of bond
paper and a private secretary.—Ex.
An exchange says : Oacur Wilde
is out with a now essay ou "The
Decay of Lying." Ho claims that
lying is a lost art. Oscar is right.
Lying i3 no longer an art. It seems
to have become, at the present day,
instinctive.
Mrs. John Rockwell, of tho
Kingston Women's Christian Temperance Union, has been interviewing the Ontnrio legislators, and says
they would grant woman's franchise now if it were not to go into
.force until after tlio next elections,
but this will not satisfy the W.O.T.U.
If President Harrison is as successful in conducting his administration on the secret service system
as has been (len. Harrison in retaining the entire bulk of cabinet information for his own use, the people
of this country will know as little
about our national affairs as will the
residents of Mars, Venus or Missouri..—Ex.
The Dominion government has
decided not to adopt the proposed
reduction in letter postage rates to
two cents at present. It is proposed, however, to increase the maximum weight for which a letter may
be sent for three cents, from one
half ounco to one ounce. A bill
will be introduced to this effect
during tho present session in parliament.
An American travelling baseball
company was recently refused permission to givo nu exhibition of the
"national game" in the renowned
Coliseum at Komo. An American
exchange remarks: When Cupt.
Anson was refused the use of the
Coliseum in which to exhibit his
imported baso ball colts, the old
man probably felt like butchering
somebody to make a Roman holiday.
A Naples correspondent gives an
anecdote which, he says, deserves
to become historical. "Sitting
exactly behind Mr. Gladstone in
church I saw a groy hair tumble on
to the collar of his overcoat. Hearing once how a lemon squeezed by
the Princo of Wales instantly
became of immortal value, it occurred to me that a hundred years
hence this short iron-grey hair
might likewise attain distinction, so
1 carefully picked it off, and held it
between my thumb and finger. The
next thing wns to bring it home
and preserve it, but on the way I—
did uot lose it—but sold iti Meeting
an Italian deputy of high position
I showed him my trophy, he got
tremendously excited, seized my hair
(the grey one), threw mo a five-
franc piece, and bolted."
It has beon demonstrated in V«co
Valley, Cal., says an fxchange, that
peach pfpiies will nit';' as good a
fire for household purposes as the
best kind of coal in tho market.
The fruit-growers, instead of as
heretofore, throwing lhe pits away,
dispose of the stones at $6 por ton.
A sack of stones will weigh about
eighty ponnds and will last ub long
us an equal number of pounds of
coal, and give a greater intensity of
heat. At many of the orchards of
the valley may be soon great stacks
of peach and apricot stones which
will eventually find their way to
San Francisco and other places to
bo sold for fuel. The apricot stone
does not burn as readily ns the
peach, and will not command as
good a price. The fruit-raisers will
undoubtedly be pleased to learn
that they have another source of
revenue open to thom. A large
number of peaches Aro dried during
the season for shipment. As soon as
tho owners find they havo 11 market
for the stones a greater number of
pounds will bo dried than heretofore.
An important addition will
shortly bo made to the effective
strength of the royal navy by the
completion for foreign service of the
cruiser Narcissus, which was recently built for the government by
the Earle Shipbuilding Company of
Hull, and has been fitted for sea in
tho Medway. The Narcissus is a
cruisor of Ihe Orland type, and is
built of steel, having a displacement
of 5000 tons, with a mean loud
draught of 22 feet 8 inchos. She is
to bo propelled by twin screws,
driven by triple expansion engines
of 8500-horso power, and at her
official trials outside of Sheerness
harbor, sho realized a speed of
between eighteen and nineteen
knots per hour on a four hours' run.
Tho Narcissus is to be equipped with
two twenty-two ton breech-loading
guns, ten five-ton breach loading
guns, and sixteen quick firing guns.
The conning tower is protected by
plate several inches thick, and the
Narcissus is also fitted with an armament abovo and below the water
line, She has a coal carrying capacity of 9000 tons, and with full
bunkers is capable of steaming 8400
knots at a reduced speed, of ten
knots per hour. In the course of a
few months the Amiralty will huvo
six cruisers of this type roady for
the pennant, viz., thu Australia,
Immortalite, Undaunted, Galatea,
Aurora and Narcissus. Each of
these vessels has cost the country
dose upon -£300,000.

countrymen that contingencies might
arise which will require England to bu
prepared for tho most suddon emergency,
ANOTHER   PRIZE FRUIT.

A HAPPY WITHDRAWAL.
London, Mar. 1.—Tho national lib-
oral club since the withdrawal of the
Marquis of Hartlngton and the unionists has received an accession of 700
members. It is expected now that
miny of the aeceders will re< urn.
STRONG LANGUAGE,
London, Mar. 1.—The Star to-daf
make a violent attack on the government. It says tbat W. H. Smith, the
conservative leader of the bouse of
commons, shares Pigott's guilt, and
demands hia impeachment. Attorney-
General Webster was called an "impudent and shameless liar." The Star
advocated the criminal prosecution of
Houston.
A GREAT BATTLE.
Cairo, Mar. 1. — Deserters from
Khartoum bring news that there has
been a great battle on the White Nile
in Bahr-El-Ghazel, between the army
of Emin Pasha and the expedition sent
out against him by Khalifa Abdullah.
The expedition was defeated with
heavy loss. Emin Pasha captured
three steamers and many prisoners
were taken. The remnant of tho expedition is dispersed in the desert.
HOUSTON IS CAME,
London, March 1.—The Parnell
commission resumed to-day. The
couJt refused to allow Houston to make
n personal statement concerning his
alleged connection with the forgeries,
or submit a written document containing auch statement ou the ground
that tho time was not convenient.
O'Kelly, Davitt and Campbell swore
they did not write tho letters sworn to
by Pigott as having been written by
them. Justin McCarthy denied he
ever had an interview with Pigott.
Lewis, Parnell's counsel, swore he never promised Pigott a farthing to Bwear
that the Parnell lcttors were forgeries.
LabouotTcro denied he ever offered
Pigott £5,000 to swear tho letters wero
forgeries. HouBton announced his
readiness to submit to a crosa*examination and give security for his continued
attendance upon llie commission.
Sir Chas. liiisjol], Parnell's counsel,
applied to tlio court for a interim report by thu commission on tho eenuine-
ness ■ of tho alleged Parnell letters.
Attorney-General Webster opposed
the application and urged Unit ns Sir
Oharles mado the charges of foul conspiracy, Houston ought to be first
cross-examined. Presiding Justice
Hannen decided nitainst the attorney-
general. He. Baid tho commission's
jurisdiction is at present limited to the
investigation of the charges and allegations made against certain persons.
"It is no part of our duty to deal with
charges made, against othor persons.
That' 'question will 'bodecided at tho
next Bitting of the commission," Tho
commission then adjourned.
dr. tanner escapes arrest.
London, March 1.- The house of
commons is crowded, the floor as well
aa the galleries. Dr. Tanner, for
whom tho i-olice watched every entrance of the parliament building to
arrest him under a crimes act warrant, hu just entered the house, and
ia recoived with cheers and shouts of
"bravo" from the Parnellitea as he
takea his seat. The debato on the
address has begun. Mr. Gladstone
is on his feet and is speaking at his
best, fle is now replying lo the remarks of Mr. Chamberlain. He is in
good voice, fine form and high spirita,
und monopolizes the attention of both
the members and spectators.
ADVISING WAR.
St. PETEnsDuno, March I.—It is reported hero the Afghans are advancing

war.
A MINISTER AlM'OINTED.
London, Mar. 1. Official confirmation ia givon to tho report that Sir
Julian Pauneefort is appointed minister to Washington.
RURUINO   IT   IN.
London, Fub. 28.—The Dailtt News,
in a leader this morning says: "The
Times tried to destroy Parnell, but
Parnell has destroyed tho Times
Novor again shall any man who respects himself hear base accusations
with guile or the affecting of a languid disgust. The Times is no representative of tho English press and we
do not hesitate to say that thoro is not
auotber English newspaper capable of
engaging in such abominable traffio
which has led tho Times to Buch abyss-
mal depths."
CONORATCLATINO   PARNELL.
London. Fob. 28. —Parnell was Bur-
rounded by friends iu the lobby of the
commons to-day, all of whom congratulated him on tho collapse of the
Time's crusade against him. Sir W.
B. Bartlett, conservative member for
Horsham, penetrated tho circle, and
cordially shook hands with the Irish
leader. Parnell has not yet resolved
upon his course of action, but it iB
definitely determined to follow up the
suggestion of conspiracy put forth by
Sir Charles ltuBsoll.
WEI1STKH RESIGNS.
London, Feb. 28.—It was asserted
in tho lobby of the hmiso of commons
this afternoon that Sir Hichnrd E.
Weh.ilor has offered his resignation of
the oilice of attorney-general in consequence cf the collapse of the Times'
charges againBt Parnell, but that the
government has as yot declined to accept it, believing that to do so would
still further commie the ministry to
responsibility for the allegations,
W. W. McLellan, Lynn, N. S., writes:
"I was afflicted with rheumatism, and
had given tip all hopes of a cure. By
chance I saw Dr, Thomas' Eclectric Oil
reoomnicnilcil. I immediately sont
(fifty milea) and purchased tour bottles,
and with only two applications I was
able to got around, and although I havo
not used ono bottlo, I am nearly well.
The other throe bottles I gave around to
my neighbors, and I have had so many
calls for more, that I feel bound to relieve tho afllieted by writing to you for
a supply."
IMPERIAL  PARLIAMENT,
London, Feb. 28.—In the house of
commons to-night, Mr. Sexton (nationalist) gavo notice of a motion to
compel the disclosure of the names of
the ofliceis who had pledged themselves to associate with Colonel Saun-
derson, the conservative member for
jNorth Armagh, Ireland, lo violate
their oaths of obedienco to thu crown
in the event of a home rule parliament
being granted to Ireland. Mr. Timothy Healey (nationalist) said that in
view of tho fact that Attorney-General
Wobator had roceived in November
Pigott's statement to the effect that he
could not stand a cross-examination
regarding any testimony ho might give
concerning the alleged Parnell letters,
ho (Healy) would give notice of a motion declaring that Sir Richard Webster had forfeited tho confidence of
parliament, Mr. Shaw-Lefevre (lib-
orul) in a speech charged the Irish executive, Mr. Balfour, with taking ad-,
vantage of a parliamentary recess to
increase the rigor of his acts of repression towards tho Irish peoplo. Mr.
Joseph Chamberlain addressed the
house. Ho contended that the opposition speakers avoided the main issue.
The house, he Baid, was asked to con-
sure the government. This request
demanded first that the views of the
government seeking to succeed the
present one should bo sot forth. He
sujd the opposition should explain its
policy; then there would be somolhim?
definite presented to the country.
In the course of the debate Mr. Russell made a statement which seemed to
accuse Mr. Dillon of paying for the
defence of murderers. Mr. Dillon exclaimed: "Tliat is a foul lie." The
speaker called upon Mr. Dillon to
withdraw the remark, which ho subsequently did upon Mr. RusboII disclaiming any intention ot personal application in his remark. Mr. Healy accused
Mr. Balfour of having made a misstatement in roferunco to the O'Brien
matter. At thu speaker's request Mr.
Healy withdrew his remark.
DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, Feb. 28.—In the senate
to day Mr. Mclnnes (British Columbia) drew the attention of the government to the necessity of urging upon
the Imperial government the construction of the proposed defences un the
Pacific coast. Three years have gone
since the admiralty sent a party of
engineers to survey tho sites, but
nothing has boen done bo far. TIiobo
proceedings, Mr. Mclnnes said, drew
attention to the war cloud hanging
over Europe. Tho Russians, he said,
are increasing their arsenal at Vladivostok, opposito to British Columbia.
Mr. Abbott, the leader of the government in the senate, replied at
length. It had not been decided to
erect batteries in the neighborhood of
Esquimalt. The negotiations between
tho Imperial and Canadian governments respecting the preparation of
the armaments aro of a confidential
nature i'liey are proceeding satisfactorily.
Mr. Mclnne3 thon drew the attention of the government to tho necessity of defending other points on the
Pacitrc coast.

New York, March l.-Smaliey's
London cable to tho Tribune says: It
is idle to penetrate tho mysteries of tho
Times oflice, or to solve the- problems

It is the Times which is responsible;
individuals are of little consequence,
but I will mention, though not vouch
for a story current among people likely
to know. Mr. Buckle, they Bay, was
from the first opposed to the publications of the letters without better evidence of their genuiness and without
somo knowledge of the source from
which they were alleged lo have come.
But he was overruled by Mr. Walter
and Mr. Macdonald. The contest between them seems to hnve lasted from
Oct. '86 to April '87. What Buckle's
friends assert is that ho implored
Mr. Walter to stay his hand, "went
on his knees to him," was the
expression I hoard used. Nor was
Mr. Buckle alone in his opposition, at
least ono outsider, a man of some
eminence, heard what was coming and
vainly tried to stop it. There were
two things which predisposed the English people to believo theso letters
genuine. Thu first was the authority
of the great journal in which they ap*
peared ; the second was Mr. Parnell's
refusal to bring action. Why ho refused to bring action himself, knowing the letters to be forgeries, has
nevor been entirely explained, Tho
distrust of a London jury was not
enough, I asked yesterday ono who
ought to know, ho answered : "Becauso wo had no evidence to prove
them forgeries."
GOOD FOR TACOMA.

Northern Pacific Railway will eipend
$6,000,000 in terminal facilities in
Tacoma and will make them as fine as
possible; $880,000 will bo expended
this year and $1,000,000 in each of
the following years until completion.
About $500,000 will be put into the
construction of workshops, freight
houses and rouud houses. The new
car shops wilt employ 600 men and
will be tho seoond largest on the road.
Three new coal bunkers will be built
with a capacity of 50,000 tons each;
the three will employ an army of laborers and mechanics for ibout four
years, and the citizens of Tacoma are
jubilant over the bright prospects.

Tho particulars of tho bill introduced into the Canadian parliament
yesterday by the postmaster-gen
oral, tu amend the act relating to
postal matters are as follows. It
will bo seen that important changes
and provisions are contemplated by
tbe bill: Tho mover oxplainotl that
the first change introduced was to
compel steamships or steamboats
navigating in Canadian waters to
carry Her Majesty's mails at such
rates as the postmaster-general may
order them to be carried at and at
such rate and terms as the governor-general in council may pre
scribe. The object of tlie proposed
change was that instead of giving
subsidies to different lines of steamships throughout the different parts
of tho Dominion for the carrying
of the mails, and on inland waters,
tho service shall be according to a
fixed principle, whether according
to the weight of tho matter carried
or the distance. This shall be prescribed by a board appointed for
that purpose. The idea was the
same as thnt carried one in connection with the mail on Canadian
railways. There was another change
to render the crime of stealing decoy letters just as grave ns that of
stealing ordinary letters carried by
tho department. Thero was another
change to render more stringent the
law regarding immoral publications
or photographs. The next paragraph gave the postmaster-general
power to increase tho rate at which
registered letters are carried throughout, the Dominion, with a view to
render their carriage more secure.
The object of the bill wns to givo
the postmaster-general full powerto
increase the rate placed ou registered letters to English and American points. Another change was
increasing the weight of ordinary
letters from 3 cents per half ounce
to 3 cents per ounce. Another
clause raises the rate on drop letters
from 1 cent per half ounco to 2
cents per ounce. It merely doubles
the rate on drop letters throughout
. the Dominion to 2 cents per ounce,
the samo us in tlio United Kingdom
and the United States. In no part
1 of tho world wero drop letters posted
and delivered at tho same rate ns
they were in Canada. Continuing,
the poat in aster-gen oral said that the
postage on newspapers and periodicals printed and published in Canada at less intervals than 7 dnys
would be charged at the rate of 1
cent per pound. Daily and weekly
newspapers are still to bo carried
free us at present. Another clause
defined newspapers according to the
definition given in tbe British postal
act. Another clause authorizes tho
postmaster-general to mako arrangements with other countries as to
the parcel post. Another clause
altered the relations between the
customs department and the post-
office department in the way of fa-
ciliating tlio delivery of dutiable
matter. Mr. Ives asked the postmaster general whether he proposed
making arrangements respecting
letters not fully paid so that they
would be forwarded to their destination and the amount collected, the
same as in England. Mr. Haggart
replied that the matter had been
fully considered in tho department.
The objection to the system proposed by thn hon. gentleman was
thnt if it allowed letters to be
forwarded without u stamp they
would revert to the old system of
sending letters without stumps to
impose upon the persons receiving them double postage. If
the letters were not sufficiently
stamped they would go to their destination, but there was the penalty
of double postage.
It is very generally understood,
says thn Mail, that during tho present session of parliament, Sir John
Thompson will introduce legislation
effecting changes in the system of
punishing for crime. The Mail
continues: Tho existing plan, according to experts in penology, is
gtrikingly imperfect. It restricts
the liberty of the criminal, and to
that extent is a punishment. But,
after all,tho man in the penitentiary
soon accommodates himself to his
changed conditions, whereupon the
idea that he is paying a penalty
passes away, and regret for the
offenco ho has committed is forgotten. Under such oiroumstances
. reform is but of the question. All
the convict thinks of is the hour of
his release, when ho will be able to
return to tho world, and perhaps
follow his evil pursuits with a success born of tho experience he has
just endured. Two methods of
dealing with convicts are now under
consideration, tho one having in
view punishment, tho other reform.
The first is known as the system of
isolation or cellular confinement,
nnd is usually applied to incorrigible and habitual convicts. Mr. J.
O. Moylab, the inspector of penitentiaries, in his report this year,
explains how it has operated in
other lands, Tho mention of this
system of punishment is, of course,
suggestive of the American plan of
solitary confinement, w\v.,M was so
thoroughly exposed by Charles
Dickens. But the two systems
bear but slight relations one to tho
other. Tho incorrigible is not.under
the system proposed, held for tho
term of his natural lifo in a cell,
where he neither sees a human face
nor hoars a human voice. A living
death is not the punishment suggested. Tlio proposal is that for the
first few months the recidivist shall
be given complete privacy, in order
that he may think over his crime.
He is to have a cell to himself. He
is not to mix with tho other convicts. He is not to be subject to
the evil suggestions of his comrades
in vice. But, separated for a term
—say nine months or a year—he is
to be taught that offences against
the law bring retribution, and that
punishment is really irksomo, if not
absolutely painful. This system
has been tried throughout Europe,
and its result has been a tremendous
reduction in the volume of convicts,
and particularly in the number of
recidivists, A man who has experienced complete isolation from
society, oven from that of convicts,
for ti year, repents, or if he does not
actually repent, is careful not to
incur the same penalty again. The
other plan which It is proposed to
adopt looks to the reformation of
the criminal. It is known as tho
indeterminate sentence system.
Under it tho tribunal before which
the oltender is tried determines
whether or not he is guilty, but it
does not fix tho term of his imprisonment. That matter is left to
the prison experts, who are to release the convict when proof of complete reformation is apparent. Education, careful training in some
respectable pursuit, and watchfulness over the morals of the patient
are matters to which the judges of
character, in the penitentiaries will
have to apply themselves. It is
said in support of this system that
where a man sincerely repents he
should be allowed to return to society ; but that if he positively declines to abandon his vices hu should
be kept, evon though ho remain
there until ho die, in prison, whore
he can mako no assault upon the
peace or the property of tho community. There is wisdom in this.
Yet it must not be forgotten that
the sharpest and most determined
criminals can profess repentance
with a greater show of sincerity
than can the novice in crime, who
is really sorry for his misdeed and
for the position in which it hns
placed him. Moreover, there is the
danger, whero tho prison authorities are not almost perfect men, that
tlie power to prolong thu punishment may be abused. The minis
ter of justice is no doubt alive to
tho difficulties, for lie has made a
study of the ontiro question. If,
overcoming these, Sir John succeeds
in his projected attempt to reform
the prison system, to reduce the
number of convicts, and to send
back to society from tho penitentiaries, not criminals more disposed
to vico than when they entered
theso institutions, but reformed
men nnxious to lend an honest and
respectable lifo, ho will havo conferred a distinct benefit upon so-
cioty, and will havo earned the
thanks of his country,

JAMES CUNNINGHAM.
Importer  of   Hardware,   Agricultural
Implement*, Etc.
In every city there are individual
examples of men whose connections
with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in all matters of public
enterprise, whose record for unflinching integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, mnko thom
objects of special note, not alone in
their homes, but wherever oxalted
commercial reputation is recognized
and respected, such a man have we
in the subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1SG2 and
has, through all tho vicissitudes of
twenty-seven years' trade, maintained the even tenor of his way.
His transactions have increased
year by year, and the circle of his
customers and patrons gradually
widening nnd his firm extending until ho now controls a business un
excelled by any similar establishment in British Columbia, His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. All this spaco is filled
with a complete and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockery ware, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hoi tow-ware,
plumbers' goods, house furnishings,
iron pipo and fittings. This house
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds nnd does every variety of
sheet-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, roofing, etc. There is no
houso in the trade which carries o
more complete stock or whoso facilities surpass thoso of this establishment for supplying tho trade with
first-class goods at lowest quotations.
The length of timo this gentleman
has boen in business and the success he has attained are better
recommendations than the loudest
praise we could possibly give. We
may mention, however, to our readers who have not yet become acquainted with this find, that none
in the Northwest has n better reputation for fair and honorable dealing.

H E HIT THE OWL.
A Clover .Jul) Put Up on Oue of Boston's
Suburban Nlmrods.
Out in one of tho suburbs of Boston there
lives a business man who is much given to
guning. and whose fondness for the sports
of tho Held has according to the Boston
Journal, passed into a proverb among
his friends. Like most hunters ho is
givou, also, to relating occasionally, in a
modest way, his triumphs with his gun.
His lire-arms are always kept in perfect
order, and in easy reach, as if he expected
to get a shot at a bear or an antelope in Ins
back yurd ut any moment. Perhaps his
near relatives may have thought he needed
a little "taking down," or else they aoied
from puro mischievousness, when, on a recent night .they put up a job on this suburban
Nimrod. Thoy procured a stuffed owl, and
when darkness had fallen upon tlio earth
they fastened this owl upon a high branch
of n maple tree ia the yard. Tho huntsman's wife was in tho secret. Early the
next morning the wife was up, and the littlo girl ns woll. Tho littlo girl wasn't in
tlio secret. As soon as it was light tho
mothor, who had gone out of doors for
something, called the little girl out.
-'Thero is something up in that tree, my
dear," sho sold, "and I can't make out
quite what it is—my eyesight is so poor.
Can you seo what it is?"
Tho littlo girl looked up into the tree.
"Why, it's a great, big owl, mamma."
"I guess it is;"
"Oh, I'll go und toil paps, ond he'll shoot
it with his guu." .
So the littlo girl run'and waked up her
father, flayingi .■»*■'■«;,;•■■
"Papa, papa, thero'sa groat, big owl up

by a Highland Editor.
Dr. Scott, of Greenoch, soys the Scottish
World, used to toll of a sailor who camo to
bo married, but whon asked if ho would
tako tho woman to bo his wife, lookod blank
and said: "I would liko to know first what
you aro going to say to she." At another
time whon tho woman was asked if sho
would obey, but did not answer, tho mau-
also ft sailor—exclaimed: "Leave that to mo,-
dlr."
Iu thoso days peoplo that felt sleepy during tho sermon used, as now In Germany,
to shako off drowsiness by standing up; but
poor human nature made this nt times on
occasion of display. At Old Monklnud a
muu who hud on a rather gaudy vest stood
up more than onco and threw back his
coat, apparently to let hts vest be seen. Ur.
Bower, tho minister, at length said: " Noo,
John, yo had hotter sit doon. Wo havo a'
Been your brnw waistcoat."
It was to Mr. Bower that tho grave-digger onco said: "Trade's vory dull tho noo.
I lioeu a buriod a leevln' orotur for throo
wocks."'
Tho peoplo seoui to havo had V dislike to
sermons being read. They used to say: "Ifoo
can wo mind tho minister's sermon tr ho
eannaniiud Ithimsol'l"
Whut nro wo to think of tho lady who
scut to hor minister, Mr. Risk, of Dalserf,
a polite messago that "ho should clean his
teeth," nnd received tho answer that "she

Whon his peoplo sent a deputation re-
qestiug him to tell them more in his sermons about renouncing their own right-

Mr. Thom, of Govan, maintained a great
warfare against tho Glasgow magistrates.
One day, whilo be was standing with tho
provost In tbe Btreet, a ragged urchin camo
up bogging, and was sternly driven away
by tho provost, who had himself risen from
nothing, Mr. Thom interposed, and said:
"Hey, laddie, there's a penny for you.
Yo'll may be provost of Glasgow yourself
yot."
Ono of tho magistrates saw htm one day
riding a good horso, and said: "You're hotter than your master, Mr, Them, for he
rode on an ass," Mr. Thom retorted: *- We
would bo willing onough to ride on asses,
too, hut they're no to bo got noondays.

The Wlrtu-rMlinm Case.
Tho Colonist says: The charge of
seduction against Judgo Wickersham,
of Seattle, and which has been the
principal topic of conversation iu that
city for manv weeks past, owing to tho
high social standing of the defendant,
has ended iu the jury, before whom
the case vas tried, bringing in a verdict of guilty. Tlio hearing of tho caso
occupied several days, the evidence on
both sides being of a most voluminous
character and was published in detail
in Seattle papers. When the verdict
was announced the presiding judgo
ordered the arrest of the defendant,
but ho was afterwards liberated on bail.
It is said the penalty for the offence,
according to the laws of Washington,
is imprisonment in tho peniteutary for
any period not exceeding five years, or
i. lino not exceeding 81,000 and imprisonment iu ttio county jail not exceeding oue your. Tho case is to bo
appealed.
Westminster Kunming.
Tlio demand lor city lots has been
more brisk during tho past week than
ever boforo in tho history uf tho city.
On all sides pinch using baa boon quietly carried tm, and men pf monoy havo
mado somo big deals. Prices, ill nrnv
sequence of the demaud, aro on the
advance, and it is safe to Bay that real
estate generally has advanced fifty per
cent within the laat IJ0 days. That a
small boom ia in progress in Westminster is now beyond doubt; but it is u
safo boom atul property has not yot
reached anything liko its real value.
Tho acquisition of tho Southern Railway by tho Northern Pacific has been
iho cauae of all this activity iu real
eatate, but when once tho great advantages Westminster ii going to derive
from the transfer i. recognized, tho
boom of tho past fow weeks will be
tamo as compared with what will follow. Westminster has seen the last of
ils sleepy days.
The .Sonlhern Hallway.
It is now a settled fact that the
Northern Pacific has purchaeod a controlling interest in tho Southern Rail-
ay, and has alao acquired Ex-Senator

'■Cantield Road." Geneva! Manager
(hikes, of the Northern Pacific Railway, baa been in Tacoma this week,
where with Mr. Cantield, Mr. King
and a number of othor gentlemen,
prominent in the matter concerned,
the final arrangements were completed.
Mr. King, the newly appointed general manager of tho Westminster, Bellingham Bay and Seattle branch of tho
Northern Pacific, has loft Tacoma for
Westminstor and will arrive hero tomorrow or Sunday, when the full conditions of tho transfer will be made
known and the future intentions of
tho company explained. Immediately
on his arrival work will be actively
commenced and prosecuted vigorously
to u finish. A fow days ngo, in Whatcom, Mr. King said ho would havo

thoso who best know the energy and
enterprise of this gentleman are confident ho will keep his word. It is tho

Annual Bible Society Meeting.
Pursuant to announcement, the annual meeting of the above society was
held last night, at St. Andrew's (Presbyterian) church, commencing at 7:30
o'clock. W. J, Armstrong, Esq.,
president, occupied the chair. Rev.
Robt. Jamieson, secretary, conducted
tho opening devotional exercises, after
which Mr. Jamieson, as secretary,
read the report of tho committeo uf
the New Westminster Branch Biblo
Society for the year ending Feb. 28,
1889.
Tho report stated that tho 10 lady
collectors for last year collected in the
city on behalf of tho Bociety tho sum of
8245.45, an increase of §27.85 ovor
previous years. The report proceeded
to thank the lady collectors for their
services so cheerfully givon and expressed tho hopo lhat they might not weary
in well-doing. The committee regretted that the usual handsome list of
contributions from tho North Ann or
Richmond had not been received during the past year. Vory great pleasure
was expressed, howover, in announcing
the receipt of n special donation of §50
from tho president, Mr. Armstrong,
which constituted that gentleman the
only life member iu British Columbia,
according to the rule that a contributor of S50 or more at one time, or
any ono who may liavo rendered important services otherwise, ahould be
elected a life member by tho directors
of tho parent society at Toronto. The
issues from the depository for tho paBt
year, havo not beon lnrgo, being 10
Bibles (in English, French, and Spanish) of tho value of $7.90 givon gratis
for uso in theponitontiary and jail. Tho
sales wero 4G biblos and 30 testaments
of the value of 842.50. Total valuo of
stock in tho depository, 8577.76. Insurance on this, $400. The committeo
woro glad to learn that tho Rev. Mr.
McLeod, Victoria, had beon appointed
provincial agent for the Biblo Society,
and thoy bid him a most hearty wel-
com on his first visit to a meeting of
this branch, expecting much from his
able and zealous efforts in furthering
tho work of the society in the province.
The treasurer's report ahowecf a total
of receipts for the year, including the
balance frum the year before (894), of
§431.95; expenditure, including a free
contribution of 8200 to tho Upper
Canada Bible Socioty, of which this is
a branch, $351.81; balance un hand,
880.14. In conclusion the committee
called the attention of tho members
of this branch to the fact that it is u
few months over 25 years sinco the
Bible Society was organized in this
city, that is, on Nov. 4th 1803, by the
Rev. Laohlin Taylor, agent of the Upper Canada Society, sent out
and nil expenses paid by the
British and Foreign Bible Socioty. Of
tho societies then organized, I he report
pointed out, in Viotoria, Nanaimo,
New Westminster, Yolo aud Lillooet,
this is the only onu t hat has
bien in active operation during
nearly all those yeara. Tho report
f u r t lier sho wed t hat at frequent
intorml-i this branch had obtained
grants of money and bibles from the
parent society and had sent colporteurs
to every house and camp from Tale to
tho gulf or each sido of the river, and
even to tho settlements and coal mines
and tu Nanaimo, on Vaucouvor Island,
to offer at the lowest cost to overy ono
iu their own language the word of life
and salvation.
Rev, Mr. Baldwin moved tho adoption of tho report, iu a short and appropriate address. Mr. J. C. Brown
seconded iho motion with a fow fitting
remarks, und the report wns unanimously adopted.
Rev. Mr. White movod a hearty
vote of thanks to the lady collectors of
thu past year, and moved that the list
of collectors iu tho hands of the chairman (which we will publish to-morrow)
be selected for this year'. Seconded
by Mr. Ferris, and carried unanimously-
Rev. Mr. Jamieson moved tho following office-bearers for 1889, explaining that he felt called upon to retire
from tho secretaryship himself in favor

all ministers of the gospel who aro

" Victoria, Fob. 28.—The speakor
took tho chair at 2 p.m. Prayors wore
read by Rev. D. Frasor.
Col. Baker presented the report of
thu Belect standing committee on tho
standing orders stating that tho rules
have been complied with in the application for the incorporation of Brockton Point Athletic club, and Victoria
Lumber aud Manufacturing Company.
The preamble of the act to amend the
Coquitlnm Water Works act was found
incorrect. Tho committee recommended that tho time for receiving reports on the petitions for private bills
bo extended to March 21st. Tho report was received.
Mr. Tolmie presented tho repnit of
tho select committee appointed to
examine and report upon tho trespass
bill. Tho report was laid over ono day.
Mr. Mason asked leave to introduce
a bill to incorporate tbo Western and
Central Railway Co. Loave was
granted. The bill was read a first timo
and referred to the committeo on
railways.
Mr. Alton asked leave to introduce a
bill to incorporate tho Victoria Lumbering and Manufacturing Oo. Leave was
granted. Tho bill wns read a first time
and referred to tlio committee on privite bills.
Mr. Beavon moved that in the opinion of this houso tho action of the government in agreeing to adopt the report of the selfct committeo of tho
house and not subsequently carrying
into effect its recommendations is in*
correct. He showed what was the
constitutional practice in matters of
this kind and referred  to three in
stances where recommendations made
by tho select committee wero not carried out. He quoted from Todd and
other authorities as tothe appointment
and duties of select committees and
referred to the recommendations contained in one report of the select committee appointed to investigate the
claim of Rev. Geo. Dioham to certain
lands near Coal Harbor. Also reports
of the committee appointed to enquire
into the claims of Louis and Edward
Gold and Samuel Greer. Tho recommendations contained in theso reports
wore assented to by the houae, but
utterly ignored by the government
Thia was at variance with constitutional
practice and the ministry as men of
honor should roaign.
Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir said if the government did resign he could not aee
how Mr, Beavon would be able to
form a ministry to carry on the affairs
tho country. As regards the reports
of tho committee, the government wore
merely asked to tako into consideration
matters touched upon by the committoe.
The provincial secretary was surprised at tho shallow pretext tho
loader of the opposition had for making tho motion on the notice paper.
Tho government waa uot bound by the
opinions of the committees, but to investigate the justice of the claims and
act thereon, Tho government had
thoroughly examined into the morits
of the cases referred to, and showod
how the said cases hnd boen disposed
of. Had the recommendations of the
committees been absolute, the government would nob have been justified in
acting upon them. In the interest of
law, justice and equity, tho government could havo dono nothing else
than they did do, and ho had never
known thu mover of the resolution to
have argument upon so weak a foundation.
The attorney-general contendod that
the resolution waa entirely out of order. It was an attempt indirectly to
get the houso to commititself to a vote
of censure un the government, and
asked the ruling of the speaker.
The speaker ruled tho motion was in
order.
Mr. Bolo argued that the question
was one of abstract parliamentary
law.
Mr. Theodore Davio quoted aeueral
well-known examples of action, such
as tho motion charged the government
with, when Mr. Boaven's party wbb in
power, and instanced the claim of R.
L. Clemitson, hi particular.
Mr. Martin moved, seconded by
Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir, nn amendment
to the motion before the house to strike
ont all the words after "that" and insert the following: "No instance has
beon shown in whioh the government
has agreed to adopt tho report of n
select committee nnd has subsequently
failed to carry that report into effect"
Messrs. Semlin and Grant opposed
the amendment and supported the original resolution.
Tho amendment was carried by a
vote of 15 to 7.
Tho provincial secretary presented
the seventeenth annual report on public schools.
Mr. Bolo moved that an humble address bo presented to his honor Lieutenant-Governor Nelson, praying hia
honor to represent to the Dominion
government tho great necessity which
exists of taking steps at nn early date
to establish quarantine stations at New
Westminster, Vancouver nnd Nanaimo.
Carried,
Tho houBo adjourned at 5:35 p.m.
Mr. Mason will ask leave to introduce a bill to amend the mineral net.
