NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Grasshoppers aro snid to be eating up. ovory thing on Kansas furms
except the mortgages.
W011I "-ho reporter (sliding into the
sanctum)—"Have you got un opening for 1110, sir I" Editor--"Yes,
indeed. Tnko hold of that ring in
tlie floor nnd pull. There's a trapdoor there. It won't hurt you
much."
A curious instance of the far-
reaching distress growing out of the
Johnstown flood comes from England. A London paper says 000
Cornwall families are reported to be
wearing crupe for relatives lost in
the Ooneinaugh valley.
Paris e^ts a vast quantity of snails.
Every day 90,000 pounds are sent
to tho city from the gardens of Burgundy, Ohiimpiigno, Provence, and
Poitou, whoro they aro specially
reared fortius purpose. They are
not only eaten us u delicacy, but
also on account of thoir highly nutritious qualities.
Taking u man who buttons on
his collar evory morning a statistician has found out that by tho time
tho man lias reached tho ngo of sixty
lie has devoted no less than two
years, ten months, three weeks and
three and three-quarter days to the
operation, or to actions directly arising out of tho process.
New York, Chicago, Philadelphia
and Washington are pushing their
claims as the best place forthe great
World's Fair of 1892. They should
all have a fair hearing. Whichever
ono has the enterprise to build u
tower twico as big as tho Eiffel
Tower of Paris may expect to win
the Fair of St. Christopher. Chicago
bus started the towor agitation
already.—Ex.
"The court functionaries at Borlin
and _t. Petersburg have beon dire-
fully disappointed," says London
Truth, "by the 'presents' which the
Shah distributed on leaving those
oities. Diamond snull'-boxcs, watches
rings, and jeweled swords wore confidently expected, but, lo and behold I the Shah contented himself
with giving away a number of photographs of himself, enclosed in silver-
gilt frames of vory moderate valuo,"

Thoro is but little doubt that
aluminum is destined to bo the
metal of tho futuro and wili displace
iron and steel as suroly as electricity
is displacing gas and steam. Aluminum exists wherover thero is a clay
bank. Formely the cost of reducing
it to a metallic form was excessive,
but now the cloctric current is utilized in its production, which is daily
being ellected nt a cheaper rato.
Aluminum is a soft white metal
wliich nover rusts. It is littlo more
thnn ono-third tlio weight of iron,
and, combining well with other
metals, it becomes, when alloyed
with oopper, harder than steel.—Etc.
Japan is becoming ,\ cotton manufacturer : 114,633 spindles, 1580
men and 3461 women, and 7,398,-
2G1 pounds of cotton were employed
in the manufacture last year. These
aro rapid increases on figures for
previous years j yet the quantity of
yarn imported from Groat Britain
and India increases still more rapidly,
In millions of pounds tho imports
wero 24| in 1886, 33' in 1887, and
'17} in 1888. In spite of tho cheapness of labor and of Japan producing raw cotton, Japanese yarns are
still an averago of 2d. per pound
dearer than the British yarns at tho
port of entry, nnd abont 3d. dearer
than the Indian yarns.
Tlie Vienna correspondent of the
London Times says, Juno M: A
novel institution wliich has not been
tried in any country in Europo, is
going to bo introduced into Austria
for tho benefit of tho travelling public of this country. To-morrow railway lending libraries will be opened
at about forty stations of tho West-
cm State Railway. The books aro
in six languages—English, Frenoh,
German, Italian, Hungarian, and
Bohoinian, and will be lent nt tho
rato of 2d, or 4(1, por week, tlie
volumes to bo returned at any station where tlioro is a bookstall.
Within tho noxt two months from
150 to 200 such libraries arc to bo
opened oil tho various lines in Austria. The undertaking has been
launched by nn English company
called tbo "globus,"
ln tho report of United States
Consul Griflin, stationed at Sydney,
the consul tells of a remarkable custom of tho inhabitants of Now Britain, as follows: "Tho inhabitants,
it is said by Wallace, havo a peculiar oustom of confining their girls
into cages until thoy are old enough
tobo married. Tho custom is said
to bo peculiar to tho people of Now
Britain. Tho cages arc made of
twigs of the palm tree, nnd the
girls nro put in them .when only
two or threo yoars of age. The
Hov. Georgo Brown established a
Wesleyan mission in Now Britain
in 1876, and I learn from him that
these cages aro buiit insido of the
houses, and that tiio girls aro never
allowed to loavo tho houso under
nny circumstances. The houses aro
closely fenced in with a sort of wick-
orwork made of reeds, Vontilation
under tho circumstances is rendered
very difficult. Tho girls are snid to
grow up strong and healthful in
spits of these disadvantages.

received ordors to deliver to M. Jac-
quier, liquidator of tho canal company,
all material, machinery, &e., belonging to tho Eiffel conkact*.. This transfer will close all connection with the
canal work of tho last private contracting firm, and it is believed on the Isthmus to indicate that decided and
energetic action is being taken to carry on the work under the direct control and management of tho canal company. The fourteenth uf July was
olaborately celebrated by French residents on tho Isthmus with a torchlight
procession, illuminations aud salutes.

BOGUS   BirpERS,
London, July 22.—Excitoment over
tho latest Whitechapel murder is dying out, despite tho efforts of tlio police
to show thoir activity by arresting nil
kinds of ragged men on slender suspicion, and by assisting news agencies
to send exaggerated stories of stabbing
affrays as fresh exploits of the Ripper;
two assault- which startled tho town
Saturday morning had nothing in common with the Whitechapel crimes, except that they took placo in that vicinity, among the same class of peoplo.
They were merely a little blood lotting
by two drunken sailors who tried to
prevent themselves from being robbed
by a dissolute woman. One of them
was so brutal that if there had not
been some interference on tho part of
tho police he surely would have been
strung up to the nearest lamp post. As
far as the capture of the real Whitechapel assassin is.concerned, the police
aro utterly at sea.

MR. SMALLEY's CABLE.
London, July 24.— -It would stir-'
prise you to hour Mr. Maed-mild is
still manager of tho Times. Ho was
believed to hnvo resigned soon uftor
tho collapse of tho Parnell letters.
"Retired on a pension," said gossips
of the profession. The gossips were
wrong, ho has not retired on a pension,
but is still managing the news and
business of the paper, which he did so
much to injure. Mr. Walter, of course,
cannot sever his correction with the
great paper, part of which 'he owns
and all of which ho prints. He is,
I hear, in good spirits and still hopeful of making out a case against Mr.
1,arnell, etill convinced Bomo of tho
letters are genuine, and still expecting
some other letters not forged this tune
may turn up beforo tho inquiry is ovor.
Meanwhile tho leading journal seems
t j lead as many people as before. Its
business is as profitable as beforo,
though its dividends aro leas for tho
obvious reason thnt a great part of the
profits go into the pockets of lawyers.
The thoughtful ' minority read the
paper with less faith than formerly in
its infallibility, but tliero is little to
show that its general proatige is impaired, or its circulation diminished or
ils authority ns nn ornclo of tho com-
mnnding classes weakened.

PARNELL COMMISSION.
London, July 23.—At tho opening
of tho Parnell commission today, Parnell was callod to tho witness stand.
In answer to questions the Irish leader denied that any letters between him*
self and Mr. Harris had been withheld
whon ho submitted his correspondence
to the Times counsel. All letters had
been sent to Solicitor Sonnies. At*
tornoy-general Webster intimated that
he would cnll to tho stand overy wit*
ness whoso testimony wns necessary
to assist him in tracing the books of
tho Land League. Mr. Parnell deposed
that he had instructed his solicitor,
Mr. Lewis, to subpoena Mnlouoy to
produco tho books. The witness was
unable to sny what amount of league
money Egan and tho other trustees of
the league had invested in his namo in
Franco. In October, 1882, J-.gr.ti sent
witness tho accounts of the rcliof fund
showing the expenditure to bo £50,-
000, leaving a balanco of £31,900.
witness said he had taken no Btops to
discover documents relating to tho
ladies' league nor would ho. Henry
Labouohoro, he said, had brought from
America from Egan valuable clues regarding the Pigott forgeries. Presiding Justice Hannen here asked witness,
"Would you instruct your Paris bankers tu produoo tho account of tbe trust
fund?" Mr. Parnell said, "I decline
to give any information concerning
such fund to either friond or foe."
A terrific hail storm passed over tho

Wednesday Evening, July ttt, 1889.
Victoria voted yesterday on the
four now loan by-laws, aggregating
$170,000, which tho oity fathers in
their wisdom had submitted to tho
ratepayers, and, as will bo Been by
our despatches elsewhere, tho wholo
batch wero carried by Inrgo majorities. $130,000 of the total amount
is to be expended in various ways
for necessary improvements and extensions of tho wnter works, $25,-
000 is designed for tho improvement
and beautifying of tiio public pleasure grounds, and with tho remaining §15,000 tho fire department of
tho city will be put in a moro efficient stato. Tho people of Victoria
show ii praiseworthy determination
to mako their city forgo ahead, if
possible. They have quite n numbor
of natural advantages to start
with, and if they pcrsevcro in offsetting their few drawbacks by
industry and enterprise tho "queen
city" will not be very far behind
any of its sister cities in the province in any respect.
There is a great pull, and no
Httte feeling, among the principal
American cities as to whioh shall
have the world's fair which our enterprising cousins have projected
for 1892, to commemorate the discovery of America by Christopher
Colubus, four hundred years earlier.
New York, Washington, Philadelphia, and lastly Chicupo, are urging
their respective claims to the honor.
The Inst named extremely ambitious
city, having just secured second
place in the list of American cities
by annexing its suburbs, feels quite
capable of taking charge of so great
an undertaking, and is not at all
modest about stating its claims.
The Chicago Tribune says: "This
is the central great city of the
United States. When the last census was taken the centre of population was a fow miles southwest of
Cincinnati. Since then it has travelled westward and northward,
steadily nearing Chicago. There, is
no point of any size in the country
which as many people can reach us
quickly nnd as cheaply ns they can
this city. Nor is there any one
where they can be as well cared for,
or at as low a price. Here visitors
are considered as guests; elsewhere
ttioy aro looked upon as pigeons to
bo plucked. It takes energy and
skill to manage such a great enterprise as tlio proposed fair. Where
in this country liavo more energy
and intelligence been displayed than
in tiie building up of Chicago 1 The
men who have mado this city can
mako a success of anything—if they
choose," Our cotemporary disposes
of Now York's claim in the following summary manner: "Thepresent
attitude of New York is that it will
tako chargo of tho fair if it is forced
• upon it. If congress petitions tlie
city, and advances the necessary
money, New York will consent to
become tho patron of the show, and
will furnish a number of prominent
citizens, at $10 a day and lunch
bills paid, to give the affair eclat and
see that it goes off in style, and tbat
evorybody gets drunk on champagne
at tho close of it." New York will
not soon hear the last of its Four
Hundred and the centennial ball,
that is plain.
DAILY BRITISH OOLUMBIAN, Sliw WESTMINSTEB, B. 0., JULY 2-i, 1889.
the bribe of office, but very shortly
he rose in the house, and stated that
he had joined tho party because the
leader bad promised him some needed reforms in the administration of
native affairs. A short time, however, had convinced him that these
promises were not to be fulfilled,
and that tho whole thing had been
simply a struggle between tho "outs"
and tho "ins," with very little regard to the interests of tho people,
white or native. That was a thing
whicli he could not understand and
would not countenance- and so saying ho walked across the floor and
took his seat nmong his old associated, by whom ho was, of course, received with thunders of applause.
No premier has sinco ventured to
take ll Maori into his cabinet.
The superiority of the Maoris to
the usual run of savago peoples has
often been commented on, and it
will not, therefore, surprise any one
to heur that they show many signs
of becoming .British in their tastes
and ideas. Naturally enough, this
tendency shows itself first in their
sports: for instance, they have taken
to football as kindly as if generations
oi their ancestors had been educated
at Eugby. In more important matters tho transition, or development,
is Blower, and, although their representatives iu the New Zealand legislature aro model members in many
respects, they do not seem able to
"catch on" to the nicotics of parliamentary government. Some yoars
ago, tho colony was divided into
Maori representative districts, each
returning a member to watch native
interests, This plan, tentative at
first, has worked so well, that it is
now one of the settled institutions
of the country. No doubt tho influence of these members is somewhat
weakened by the circumstance that
they seldom venture to address tho
house in English, so that their ideas
have to bo filtered through the
medium of an interpreter, but they
have a simple direot eloquenco whioh
has its weight notwithstanding this
drawback. Although they have
carried themselves as a rule as very
faithful part/ men, it soems that
this has been due chiefly to tbe fact
that they have been unable to see
any reason for leaving the side which
they took on their lirst introduction
to the legislature. Once, during a
"crisis," a shrewd opposition leader
did gain one of them—their party
waB then in power—and when he
had succeeded in ousting the government his ally was given a seat in
the executive. It looked at lirst as
if the Maori had been bought with
Tho fierce light which beats upon
a throne has, in the case of tho
sacred seat of Britain's majesty,
taken lately to cavorting around the
props of tho royal perch. Whon
her most gracious majesty asked hor
"faithful commons," the othor day,
to make a little settlement upon two
of her grandchildren that were going
into housekeeping for themselves—
a pracLico which has been tho wont
of "her faithful commons" from timo
immemorial—what should the mercenary wrctchos do hut straightway
appoint n committee to thoroughly
sift and ventilate the wholo question
of royal grants, somo of tho more
bluff antl unfeeling of the "faithful
commons" aforesaid even openly suggesting that grandma Victoria should
set the young couples up in business
herself. Tho committee, after ran
sacking the whole question of
the royal income, financial transactions and expenditures, has
just reported, and recommending
an addition of £9,000 quarterly
to tho allowance of the Prince of
Wales, besidos maintaining the
right of tho Queen to nsk parliament
for a further provision for her grand-
children. The messages which the
Queen sent to parliament asking the
provision iu question are not uninteresting reading. The first referred
to the caso of the young prince:
'Her majesty boing desirous of making provision for the honor, support
and maintenance of her grandson,
Prince Albert Victor Christian fid*
ward, recommends the consideration
thereof to her faithful commons, and
relies on their attachment to her
throne and person to adopt such
measures as may be suitable to tho
occasion." Tho second message was
us follows: "Her majesty having
agreed to a marriage proposed between her grand-daughter, her roya I
highness Princess Louise Victoria
Alexandra Dflgmar, and tho Eight
Hon. tho Earl of Fife, has thought
fit to communicate this fact to the
houso of commons. The numerous
proofs which hor majesty has received of her faithful commons of
their loyalty to her throne and of
their attachment to her person and
family, lead her majosty to have no
doubt of their readiness to enable
her majosty to make provision for
her royal highness," The committee
on royal grants, as stated abovo, reported favorably on the Queen's
claims. The Liberals, and even the
Parnellites, it is understood, are just
as averse to treating the reigning
family shabbily in this matter as are
the Conservatives. The debate on
tho report was postponed from Tuesday until Thursday (tomorrow),
when it is expected the radicals of
tho house will raise u breeze in opposition to the tenor of the report
A royal family is, perhaps, an expensive luxury, and perhaps it isn't.
At any rate, Johnny Bull hasn't
made up his mind to do without ono
yet, nnd, unless we mistake his
"style," lie will treat them pretty
decently, in spite of an occasional
growl, until such timo us lie makes
up his rather slow moving mind to
abolish the institution, an event
whicli is probably not very near.

BOOMERANG AND SPEAR.
now tbo Natives of Australia Dae Tbeso
Two "Peculiar Weapon*,
Moro bos been written, and less Is understood, of tlio boomerang than of almost any
othor weapon, writes a Springfield (Mass.)
Republican correspondent from Hobart,
Tasmania. It is generally known to bo a
llat stick of wood bent into a shape which
stiRgosts a combination of a " V" and a"U,"
although with the extremities spread apart
until thoy are at right angles with each
othor. In point of fact, boomerangs aro of
almost overy Bhape, from semicircular to
nearly straight, and seem todopend for thoir
efficiency not so much upon the evident
form as upon the curves which are shown
upon their fiat sides. If one takes a boomerang and looks along the sharp outer edge,
it is seen that this edge presents a wavy
appearance—a delicately adjusted sinuosity
like tho lino of along screw. This curve is
not elaborately fashioned or smoothed into
evenness; the hard wood of which the
boomerang is usually mado being picked
out with short blows from a sharpened flint
hold in the hand, almost always shows, Indeed, infinite Irregularities.
What rule of construction tko savage
•"artificer follows evon bo himself would
probably bo unablo to say. Yet he has some
definite plan in mind, no doubt, for while ho
chips and pecks away at tlio wood ho takes
frequent squints along its edge to see how
his curves aro progressing. I hove nover
seen two boomoranga that wero juBt aliko,
but all are similar in their relations of
curves along the fiat side, The boomerang
maker knows instinctively just whero his
boomerang will go whoa he throws it, although ho nover seems to aim any two in
the same way.
More lies bave been told about the boomerang than can be well enumerated, and
nearly every Australian traveler comos
back with a frosh assortment. Ono hears
of men who can so throw a boomerang that
it kills an enemy behind a tree and then
comes cheerfully fluttering book to its
owner, who thoroupon hurls It on a fresh
mission of carnage. A flock of frightened
cockatoos, speeding in intricate gyration*'
through the air to escape the attack of
natives who wont a bird for dinner, aro
pursued at ovory turn by these erratic
weapons, which striko them down a dozon
each, and so return to the hand that east
thom. Old wives' fables, these, at which
Australians laugh, knowing in tke naturo
of things their falsity. In the first placo
the war boomerang Is not made for return,
' ond is only slightly bent, so that it may go
hopping und bounding along the earth like
•rn hoop, and make capacious holes in the
body of tho adversary. Thoso are of hard,
heavy wood, and ugly things to be hit
withal; but tho return boomerang is simply a play-thing, or to bo used Iu light hunting, and, although It might givo a man a
painful rap, could not Boriously injure him.
|A.s for the cockatoo story, It has this much
of truth—that a nativo boomerang hurler,
if ho saw n flock flying by him in a straight
courso, could so oust his weapon as to como
upon tbem unawares at a given point, and,
.perhaps, knock ono down; but his boomerang would drop, too, having no powor of
flight after it bas struck any thing.
Tho boomerang Is sufficiently remarkable
without being regarded in tho light of a
long bow. and drawn by overy tourist In
tho colonics. It Is hold perpendicularly and
taken firmly in tho hand by one of its extremities, with tho other pointed forward,
,und is hurled with a full arm and assisted
by a run and swing of tho whole body. A
slight turn of tho wrist at tho moment of
discharge causes it to assume various erratic courses. Sometimes it will fly straight
forward for one hundred oreven two hundred yards, thon rise sharply., to a great
'height, Jose its force, and flutter down to
tho foot of the throwor. Agniu, it will riso
In tho nir, swoop down with immense rnp-
Klity, and skim around lu a great semi-
Irclo a fow inches from the ground, riso
bnco more, and return to the spot whenco it
started. It will also start oft in a great
swoop to tbo right, reverse it and turn to
tho left, skim around the throwor in a
series of ever-narrowing eircloa, and, find*
»** their center, fall iuto it like an ex-
lausted bird. There is something uncanny
ibout the thing; its movements are so unexpected aud out of reasou that it seems to
bo alive, and to toko a savage delight in
strange shoots and dashes, which make the
'now ohura" (Australian' oquivalont for
■tenderfoot") dodge ovory timo it turns,
Lest it Bhould knock him ou the head.
Tho yarn about the Australian blacks always throwing tho boomerang with their
>acks to tke object thoy desire to hit ia a
icce off tbe samo "whole oloth" as tho
'ockatoo fable, and tho lie about tho mlssilo
returning to its owner after killing the
gentlemen behind the tree; Au expert
;hrowor can cause his boomerang to
■hoot behind him aftor a short preliminary
Ixcursion in front, and como very near a
liven object, but If ho wan -.s to hit any thing,
Kither in hunting or war, ho doesn't fool
way his time with the return boomerang,
mt throws a heavy," nearly straight one,
vhloh goes direct to the mark without any
lourlshos. Such is tho boomerang—a two-
ormed utensil, with ono Bhape for business,
he other for sport .-.;.-,.
Another ingenious contrivance used by
■ho natives is tho handle and thong which
hey ubo in propelling their spears—theso
King generally of tapering, sharp-pointed
licks of hard wood, although sometimes
pped with flint or iron. To odd to tho
orco of their discharge some sable phlloso-
iher whose name is lost took a bit of thick
tick about a foot long, fastened to one end
f It a atrip of leather or cord torminat*
ig in a socket, wherein to set tho butt of
Us spear, and was ready for action. When
be cord or strip et leather was laid along
ho spear, tho handle camo in the center,
nd was hold on tho under side of tho
venpon whon it was cast. When tho spear
eft tho hand, tho handle and its appendage
f leather or cord remained, and by a dox-
orous movement on the partof the tbrowcr
ctodllkea sling to accelerate the flight of
bo shaft. By this device, tbo spearman
mined tho same advantago tbat a stinger
a joys over a person who hurls a stone by
Is unaided arm—so that cases aro known
(-here spears thus hurled havo flown two
undred yards, und gono completely through

ils flrst start in life to the circumstance of

The notice which wo- publish elsewhere, formally announcing tho resignation of Mr. John Hendry us mayor
of the eity, w ill be read with surprise
and regrol by nearly every citizen.
Mr. Hendry gives as his reason for resigning thut it haa been insinuated
that he, its a mombor of tho Westminster Southern Railway Oompany, desires t-j furthor tho interests of the
railway uttuo expense of thoso of lho
city. It may cetttinly be n little nwlc*
ward for Mr, Hendry to be a member
of tho railway company and of tho city
council at tho samo time, but wo boliove, however his opinions on railwny mnlters may clash with thoso of
any of his collengucs iu thu cily council, that ho is sincerely Booking tho
city's best interests in both capacities. Those who differ with him. of
course, may bo equally holiest; but it
is to be regretted that any such unjust insinuations as are hinted at in
tho mayor's published resignation
should hnvo boon expressed. Our
renders will be ns much iu tho dark ss
wo me as lo tliu immediate cause that
eventuated in Mr. Hendry's resignation. A caucus meeting of tho council,
at which railway matters was discussed,
was, wo believe, hold last night, but
the proceedings, of course, woro pr'
vflto. When thoy shnll transpire moro
light will bo thrown upon tho subject.
It is extremely regrettable thnt Mr.
Hendry ahould consider it necessary
for him to resign the position of mayor
which, it is tint too much to say, ho
has filled with uniform aud general
satisfaction. All will hopo that it may
bo possible for hiin to evouliially withdraw hifi resignation,
Uanserous Sidewalk!-,
The Columijian has called attention
timo and again lo the condition of tho
sidewalks throughout the city, but
move especially to those in llm businesa portion of the oity. tin thoso
streets on which the grade is not to ho
changed tho council should commence
sidownlking without delay, ln many
places the sidewalks on our business
streets are in a disreputable and highly dangerous condition, and are cur-
lain, if allowed to remain in their present state, to cause nn accident that
will prove very costly to the city.
Keg Mer Your Xniiirs.
The municipalities throughout tho
district of Nuw Westminster should
awaken to the fact that if they wish to
speak with a strong voice at the noxt
elections they will have to see that
thoir names uro properly registered,
and that without delay. The municipal councils Bhould follow the example
uet them by Westminster and Vancouver, and appoint vote collectors to
havo every person entitled to voto
duly registered. Thero is not much
time to spare and if our country friends
wish fo be able to vote they will havo
to net quickly.

proved correct. Tho boats averaged
100 lish each during the uight, though
many got doublo this number, but tho

CORRESPONDENCE.
brought against the Seattlo authorities
after the fire, by the committee appointed to investigate the circumstances, that
they wore rosponsiblo for tho destruction
of tho eity? What aro tho underwriters
thinking about, I would like to know,
that they, do not insist upon better fire
protection measures being adoptod in
this city.
1 notico by tho Vancouver papers that
tboy had u fire. in that city Monday
morning that completely destroyed the
houso that it started in, all tlio valuable
furniture, eto., beforo the firemen got
fairly to work, It is generally admitted
that if fhe house had not beon in an isolated situation that Vancouver would
have had a destructive fire. If a firo
wero to start in somo parts of our businesa town, it Is not hard to imagine what
would bo tho result by Hie timo the
steam engine got down to tho rlvor and
got ready to throw a stream.
It is well known that the chief engineer has stated that ho will always
take tho steam fire engine to tho river
immediately on an alarm of firo, on nccount of the fear of the tanks giving
out, This is a good idea, and is of course
almost necessary, but 1 would nsk the
chief engineer what ho would do if the
firo were to break out in tho Hyack Hnll
itself or in that vicinity 1 A hand engine could pump water from the tank behind tho hnll with hardly a moment's
delay, but tho fire would probably be
beyond tho efforts of tho firemen by tlie
Mine tho steam engine got pumping from
tho river.
This ia a serious question, and I hopo
tlmt tho authorities will not delay longer to give us tho butter protection which
a hand engine on ('olumbia street would
insure, Old Firbhaw.
