NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Gen. Boulanger declares the government are insane, otherwise they
would never dream oi adding to his
popularity by instituting against
him a public prosecution.
Magistrate (to prisoner)—"Were
you born in Pennsylvania!" Prisoner
—"Yes, sir." Magistrate—"Brought
up in the state 1" Prisoner—"Yes ;
I liavo been brought up in PennByl-
vany, ond every other state in the
union, too."—Life.
Eiuporor William, doubtful as to
what English feeling may be towards him on his visit to London in
July, has inspired the semi-official
declaration that the emperor's supposed dislike to the English is a
mistake, and that, after Germany,
he loves England most.
Miss Marie Devoe (at the cooking-
school(—"Do you mean to say, chef,
that we must put our bare hands
into the dough!" Professor Tar-
iopornes—"Sairtainly, MWselle,"
Miss Marie Devoe—"Perhaps that
is why I failed with my bread the
last time. My gloves seemed rather
in tho way."
"You poor little boy 1 On the
streets in rags such a day as this.
Havo yon no home I" Yes'm, I
live in that house on the other side
of the street." "You have no mother,
have yoa little child 1" "Yes'm she
and 40 other women are in there
now making embroidered nightgowns
for the Zulus."
Action was taken by the Victoria
board of trade on tho Mission bridge
span in conjunction with the New
Westminster board of trade. Vancouver's board had a meeting, but
nothing is reported of any action in
this matter having been taken.
Was it forgotten, or were those
present afraid to deal with the sub.
jeoti— ll'orf'.	
A teacher in n western town who
asked ono of hor pupils to procure a
grammar received the following note
from the girl's mot her: "I do not
desire that Mattie shall ingage in
grammar as I prefer her to ingage
in moro youseful studies and can
learn her to speak und write pi-opor
myself. I have gone through two
grammars and can't say ns Lliey did
mo no good—I prefer Mattie to
ingage in German and drawing and
vokal music  on  the   piano.1'- -Ex.
Well, what next! The Bishop .1
Gibraltar, having taken counsel with
the Anglican clergy of Riviera, has
como to tho conclusion that it is
not expedient to build n church in
Monte Oarlo, on the ground that the
place is too wicked. "I came," said
the Bishop to Monte Oarlities, "not
to call the sinners but the righteous
to repentance." Such out-and-out
cynicism is so startling in a bishop
that I cannot help thinking there
must be some other motive behind.
Is his Lordship of Gibraltar afraid
that the temptations of Monaco
might prove too much for a resident,
chapluin I—london Truth.
In tho house of commons on tho
27th of March, Sir John Macdonald
in reply to a question by Mr, Prior,
in rogard to the action of tho government on the Behring sea matter
said. The government have received
no official notification from the government of the United States in
regard to the proclamation. The
government havo not entered a protest against suoh action on the part
of tho United States as they do not
think that the question afFooting tho
navigation of Behring sea is involved
in the proclamation. The proclamation is merely to warn their own
fishermen as well as others, and
issued under the aet approved on
March 2nd, 1889.
It is not surprising to learn from
the Windsor Record that Windsor
has long desired to possess a park.
That is the natural desire of every
well-ordered town, and wise be they
who aim at consummating their
wishes iu this respect. Few places
have tho gcod fortune, however, to
be presented freo of charge with a
tract of land comprising 46 acres of
a suitable sight within tho town for
a'park, and this is what has happened to Windsor through the
generosity and publio spirit of Mr.
Hiram Walker. The land is valued
ut fifty thousand dollars, and is a
gift twice blessed, reflecting credit
upon the donor and conferring a
benefit upon the recipients.
"Show mo a country" said a very
wise philosopher once, "whoro people aro getting married wholesale,
and I will show you a oountry that
is highly prosperous." Taking this
philosophic dictum as a sound basis
to work upon, wo havo an additional
proof that the Gape Colony is prosperous. During the first weok of
tho prosperous year no less than
70 ccuples wore married in Oape
Town alone, and during tho second
week over 00 couples took the wild
leap into the troubled sea of matrimony together. Proportionately to
the population this is a splendid
average. A local paper accounts
for tho fact that tho weekly number
has somewhat diminished sinco by
the statement that "aspirants are
waiting to see how the first big
batch get along."—Ex.

EXCITED  ABOUT D. (J.   DEFENCES,
Ottawa, April 10.—The intention
just expressed by the naval authorities at Washington to establish another
navy yard on tbe Pacific cout near
Seattle, has ereated considerable commotion in government circles here and
aroused the officials. At a cabinet
meeting juat held tbe Seattle announcement was disouaacd and General
Frederick Middleton, commander of
the forces, was instructed to draw up
a communication to the home government indicating the urgency of the
fortification of Esquimalt. The Canadian government realizes the contest
botween Victoria and Vancouver-
British Columbia sea-ports, and Seattle, Portland and Tacoma, for trado
supremacy. This was brought to their
attention by the 0. P. R., which has
everything to make by building up
the Canadian Pacific coast and everything to lose by tbe inaction of the
government, A navy yard at Seattle
means a tremendous rush of good people to Washington, who have in most
coses been assisted to the coast by the
railway or the government, and who
are very much dissatisfied with matters
there, as indicated by letters received
east by the dozen daily. The members of parliament for British Columbia intend to catechise the government
ngain next week on the question, as
they did lastVah'd Senator Mclnnes, of
B. C, is very outspoken in his indignation at the vicillatiou and procrastination of the imperial authorities,

DOMINION  PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, April 9.—The Becond reading of the bill to provide for the conveyance of certain lands to British Columbia, took place in the senato today. Senator Abbott said that the
bill was for tbe purpose of enabling the
government to reconvey to tho province of British Oolumbia a tract of
45,000 acres of land which was conveyed to the government of Canada as
part of the railway belt by mistake.
The intention was not to convey to
the Dominion any lands which bad
been previously disposed of to any person, and where a tract cf 200,000 acres,
which had been set apart for a certain
purposs from which theae 45,000 acres
wore selected, ia claimed, and he believed it is understood with justice, by
the person to whom the land was promised by the British Columbia government, and this measure is to enable
the provincial government to fulfil its
agreement.
In tho house this afternoon tho bill
respecting the collection of certain
tolls and dues was read a third time
and passed.
Hon. C. H. Tupper moved the third
reading of tbe bill to nmond tbo Fisheries act which prohibits net fishing
in tidal waters. Mr. Ellis moved the
six months' hoist in an amendment.
Hon. Potcr Mitchell supported it and
mndo an attack on the administration
of tho fisheries. Tho department
would destroy tbo rights of thousands
of fishermen in non-tidal waters. Tbe
members were then called in, and a
division resulting tho amendment was
rojucted on a voto mainline, yoas 75,
nays 103. The bill was then read tho
third time and passed,
The house bill to amend tho Franchise act was taken up, tho amendments were ordered to be printed and
the bill after discussion staudB forthe
third reading. The Post Ofiico act
alao stands for tho third reading. Au

By an ndvertisomont in the
' Weekly Columbian, tbe post oflice
inspector makes tbo notification that
"sealed tenders, addressed to the
postmaster-general, will be received
at Ottawa until noon, on Friday,
17th May, for tbe conveyance of her
majesty's mails on n proposed contract for four years twice per week
each way, between Elgin nnd New
■Westminster, from thn 1st July
next. The conveyance to be made
on horseback or in a vehicle, nt the
option of the contractor. To leave
Elgin every Wednesday and Saturday at 7 a.m., to proceed to New
Westminster, and get btuk to Elgin
with return mail on the evenings of
the same days." Further informa
tion, blank formBof tender, ifec., may
be obtained at the post offices at this
city, Mud Bay, and Elgin, and at
the office of the inspector, Victoria.
The most important point, however,
in connection with the above announcement is tho fact that the
thriving settlements of Elgin and
Mud May will have, after the 1st
July next, a semi-weekly, instead of
a weekly, mail service, a change
whioh cannot but be appreciated.
Our readers are aware that we have
on quite a number of occasions urged
the postal authorities, not only to
grant this additional service on the
mail route mentioned above, but also
on the other route south of this city
supplying the settlements of Surrey
Centre,-Olover Valley, Hall's Prairie
and Langley Prairie. Wo believe
the authorities have in contemplation furnishing the last mentioned
settlement with a semi-weekly service rift Langley, instead of from
this city, as at present. If this intention is carried out, there will be
but three settlements remaining with
a weekly service, and these will be
supplied, with a daily service,
probably, when tbe Westminster-
Southern gets iu running order.
It is high time that tbe wants of
the various settlements in the matter of increased mail facilities were
being met, and wu are glad to be
able to say that the prospect is good
for this being done. With respect
to the moderate subsidy asked for
the establishment of a daily mail
service between this city uud the
North Arm, a matter which is at
present before the Dominion authorities, and to which we have referred
on former occasions, wo would urge
upon the postal authorities, again,
the propriety of assisting, to the
extent of the subsidy asked, to the
establishment of the service required.
The advantages and the necessity of
this service have been sufficiently
set forth before, a fact which, we
trust, the result may prove has not
been lost upon the government.
Mr. Gladstone's affectionate title
of "The Grand Old Man" is ono
whioh ia peculiarly appropriate and,
from association and usage, applicable to him alone of living men.
Thore is only one Gladstone. The
great Liberal leader is generally conceded to be an unique figure in
British politics to-day, as well as in
the world of oratory and letters.
The native eloquence of the ex-premier is something of which his auditors never tire, but to listen to this
matchless speaker and profound
reasoner is a pure treat, upon all
occasions, and on any subject that
he essays, That fell paralyzer, age,
has not, impaired the "Grand Old
Man's" physical vigor nor dimmed
the fires of bis soul, but his words
pour forth vehement, forceful, inspiring, ns of yore. An English
correspondent of the Toronto Mail
draws some interesting pictures and
comparisons relating to the occasion
of Mr. Gladstone's recent eulogistic
oration in parliament on the lato
John Bright. Mr. Gladstone came
in at a quarter to four, says the correspondent, looking wonderfully
freth aud vigorous, nnd ho at once
entered into conversation with Sir
William Vornon Harcourt. Ko
nervous fumbling for notes, no signs
of intense pre-occupntion, are ever
visible when Mr. Gladstone has to
speak. One moment he is talking
in a lively manner to the person
nearest hira,*»the next he is standing
at the table rolling forth his mellow
periods. The miseries of public
speaking havo Ionic since passed out
of his recollection, even if he ever
experienced them. After the Hon.
W. H. Smith's address, Mr. Gladstone immediately followed, and his
' oration and its' effects are thus desoribed by the writer above referred
to: "Hie first few sentences showed
that he was rather hoarse, as well
he might be, considering the exposure to bitter Scotch weather which
he had to go through last week * but
whether his voice be hoarse or clear
hii stylo is always immeasurably
superior to that of any other man in
tke house, and the standard by whioh
we wen #We to judge of what was
supplied. Before the proceedings
mmiim the comparison must have
convinced the most confirmed opponent of Mr. Gladstone that there
tt no one «ho oan distantly approach
himinelSuence. He brought into
prominmoe with equal skill and
feeling the marked features of Mr.
Bright's publio life,, dwelling much
upon the moral elevation of his character. Full of generosity, too, was
his eulogium, for it gave the heartiest praise to Mr. Bright for those
very passages in his career in which
he bad been opposed by Mr. Gladstone—the war of secession, and so
forth. Mr. Gladstone and Mr.
Bright held conflicting views on
these events, and now the venerable
leader of the Liberal party admitted
that Mr, Bright had shown true
foresight. All through the address
was couched in that elevated strain
which alone is tolerable on such an
occasion, and in which Mr. Gladstone is absolutely without an equal.
He came to an end much too soon,
to the general regret of the house,
which had listened to every word
with admiration," Tho writer adds:
"Mr. Chamberlain got up and made
what people called a characteristic
speech, that is be quickly brought
things down to the level of these
prosaic days. We could now compare the new school with the old,
Mr. Chamberlain with Mr. Gladstone. Broad and deep indeed is
tho chasm which divides them. Mr.
Gladstone talked of Mr. Bright's
exalted purity and noble aims, Mr.
Chamberlain began to tell of hiB
pecuniary relations with his consti
tuents. 1 have beard and read some
strange funoral orations, but that a
gentleman should rise upon such an
occasion and say in effect, -Our or
gam'zation, which I called into existence, was perfect, and we never let
the deceased pay his own eleotion expenses'—this I think is something
new in necrological literature. He
who drinks beer thinks beer wus the
dictum of Dr. Johnson, and I suppose
that be who loves money dearly will
think money, but at such a time and
over such a man it was out of place
to talk of eleotion expenses. 'Mr.
Bright was a good man and we sent
hiin free of cost/ After that, the
epitaph 'She painted in water colours
and of such is the Kingdom of
Heaven' fades away into , insignificance. Thus it came to pass that
smiles were seen on the lips of many
members as they left the house in
spite of the sadness and solemnity of
the occasion."

RALPH'S APOLOGY.
, Tbe Lesson Taught by a Mother'*
Love and Devotion.
.   Ab Ralph Darrow rode slowly through
tho main street of the little country town
"Not another word, sir," interrupted his
father, in a tone whioh always sent the
blood from Ralph's heart. "I want tho
work done, and I want you to do tt Tour
sprained arm is merely an excuse to bo idle.
If this stable is not cleaned when 1 return
to-night I will give you cause to regret it;
and I positively forbid your allowing Moses
to touch it."'
He sprang on his horse, and rode off at a
gallop, heedless that his sou hod sunk upon
a heap of laths, and had covered his face
with his hands to conceal the tears that
started to his eyes.
Mrs. Darrow had been standing by tho
kitchen window, and had heard all that had
passed. Sho now camo to whero Ralph lay,
and bent lovingly over hlm.
" It would not be possible for you to uso
your arm, I know, my son," Bhe said. " It
would be of no uso to try."
" Ob, mother, it gives me pain to move it
ever bo little. But whatcan Idol You know
how terribly father will whip me if the
work isn't done, and he won't believe I'm
net able to do it."
" Don't worry about it now, Ralph. Wo
will try to find a way out of it, I want you
to go to Greenfield after somo groceries I
need, and when you return we will talk
about tho stable."
Talking won't do any good, I'm afraid,
mother," replied Ralph, as he rose, and
went to put tho harness on Dolly. " And I
must take the whipping, I suppose."
He drove to tbe kitchen door on his return
from tho village two hours later, and lifted
from the light wagon the basket of groceries he had brought.
" Whero Ib mother!" he asked of his littlo
sister Jennie, who was skipping rope in tlio
baok yard,
u I don't know—she's been gone ever so
long," answered the little girl. " I guess
sho's in the stable hunting oggs."
As old Dolly's hoofs struck tho stones of
the paving at the entrance to tho barnyard,
tho doors of the stable were' thrown open,
and Ralph saw hiB mother standing inside,
a shovel in her hand.
"Backso soon, Ralph," she said,cheerily.
But Ralph did not answer. He sprang
from tho wagon, gave a hurried look about
tho stable, and then, with a strange, choking
sensation in his throat, threw himself upon
a pile of hay by tho barn stairs, and burst
into tears.
"Ralph! Ralph! my dear boyi" and his
mother bent ovor him, her own tears falling
fast,
"Oh, mother I mothor I Why, why Aid you
do Iti" he cried, when he could speak.
"Because I love you, my son, and   ,

, "I got to shooting at a target with Luke,

>Vc33ing his shame and contrition,
j Mrs. Darrow wns silent a moment, and
jjhon, as Ralph sprang from the saddle, Bho
["., .till hor hand tenderly on his shoulder.

''Oh, mothor, and oarried it all to the
Rousoj"
1 " Yes, my dear, there was no one else to

t Not a word, not oven a look, of reproach!
(As Ralph led old Dolly to the barn and
|dircw down somo hay from tho loft for her,
'iie almost wished his father had uot gone
way, for parhapa if he had received a
iyii-asliiug ho would not have felt bo utterly
P /rotclwd as he did now.

IbjovolI in tha use of the rod as a moans of dis-

T. iwnys loving, tender and merciful, and
if Melded Mm from Ms fathor's wrath when-
j. ver it was possible for her to do so, sorrowing muoh that sho could not convince
/"'cr husband that it was bettor to govern
[ i-miugh love than fear.
i   As Ralph entered tho kitchen after focd-
, ..g Dolly ond saw the weary, worn look on
- .is mothor's face, he felt moro conscious-
fi tr clean than ever, and could not eat the
winner sho set before Mm.
i''But it isn't as lU was always running

lip to find excuses for his conduct.    "I

" Aud thinking thus, raking up one by one
ill tho injuries of whioh ho had been the
dot im, and comparing Ui lifo with that ot
[, evcVal of his friends, Ralph at length ar-
T ivod at the conclusion that after all ho had
iiot been guilty of any thing very wicked in
{(-•ponding the morning at Luke Ashton's
k md that ho had been foolish to allow his
Efoonsulenco to trouble him for even a mo*

And after that, whenever it pricked him
li little, ho refused to listen to It, and felt

AMERIGO-FOREIGN  GIRLS.
A New Variety uf Young Women That llat
Suddenly llloi-souied Forth,
Wo have dovoloped a now typn of girl,
says tho Now York Maltaid ■ .*;> ->-<. She
is bred upon puro nativo stock, but she Is
to all Intents and purposes an intermit tonal
girl. Half the debutantes last winter wore
of this variety of girl and n vory Interesting variety it Is. Thoyepoak English, but
they do it with a French or Gorman accent,
and they haven't at all our frank, aboriginal
ways, They look pretty, but it is with au
odd foreign prottlness that temp;-; us to du*i
them, as dealers In all sorts of wai-os do
their choicest stock, "imported." Thoy aro
curious, Engllsh-Contlnental-American hybrid girls.
TMs the progress of their growth. They
are born in the land of the free, etc., and
hore they livo until thoy aro porhaps fourteen or fifteen years old. Thon momnu tokos
them abroad, just at the formutivo period of
thoir lives, and establishes thom in a pension or a private family. Thero tho foreign
nurseryman prunes thom and trains them
on trellises, encourages them in this direction, and ehecks them in tyat, doing hii- best
by late cultivation to eradicate tho effects
of running wild in our rank new soil. By
and by when tho young woman la old
enough to bo introduced mamma goes af ior
hor and brings home the finished product.
Mamma brings a foreign wordrobo at tho
samo time, and gives a tea er a dinner or a
dance to lot people see tMB exotic of hers.
You know that Bho is an oxotlctho minute yon sot eyes on her. Sho hus lost the
ease, tho freedom and the liberty of tho
Amorlcan girl, sho has not put ou quite tlio
primness of tho jeutejitle, but her bearing
is the oddest commingling of the two.
Thero is the natural impulsiveness funnily toned down by the acquired restraint.
She does not dash into festivities with the
confidence of young quoendom, -fearing
notMug, suspecting nothing, onjoylng nil,
pushing her mother Into tho background,
as young America has done sometimes.
Sho stands demure in her Worth gown bo*
side mamma until a partner presents
himself, and as soon as tho dance is
over Is conducted straight book to mamma
or chaperon, nothing of tho malo sex being
permitted to exchange a dozen words with
her away from the safe convoy of thut
friend. Sho is under guardianship, strict
guardianship, and the multiplication of the
guarded typo Ib altering tho wholo complexion of tho social world. Thoy aro vory
pretty, those comical, littlo Amorico-foreign
girls, that step in the unaccustomed harness so gingerly, letting their heels fly
.in spite of themselves in an involuntary
caper sometimes. They are vory amusing
with thoir small pruderies, for the uuaf*
cctcd unconsciousness of your real European damsel who wasn't allowed to learn
young thut sho was a person of Importance
doesn't come by grafting. They aro an interesting' study, but tho faster they increaso tho more certainly we aro approximating foreign waya in yet another particular, tlio real power in society, ■ she who
Ib its breath of life, is not the bud, but the
young married woman who regains the
freedom given up by the girl.
At the Wrong Window.
A good story Is told by the Troy (N. Y.)
Timu at the expense of tho Amherst College Oleo Olub. About ten years ago the
olub mado a trip through New York State,
and lung in Rochester at the same time that
Kate Fennoyer, a pretty stage singer, was
thero. After the concert it was proposed to
sorenodo tho lady, and the club proceeded
to her homo and struck up the familiar col*
logo hymn, "Dear Evelina," paraphrasing
thochoniBthusly:
" Desr Kate Ponnoyer,
Sweet Kate Pcnnoyer,
Our lovo for thee
Shall never, never die."
After singing tho entire long the boyi
waited a moment for a recognition of their
serenade. Slowly a window in the third
Itory was raised, later a man olothed in
robes of wMte and with wMikeri a foot long
was seen, and then a bass solo was wafted
down to tho collegians i
"Dear boys below there.
.    Sweet boys below there,
Your Kate Pennoyer
Lives four doors below here."
As the last words of his song died on the
frosty air, the Amherst College Glee Olub
gathered themselves up like Arabs and as
silently stole away.
What Wonld Stop Them.
A particularly vlgcrous spcakonnt a woman's rights mooting waving her long arms
liko tho soils of a wind-mill, asked i "If the
women of ihls country Woro to rlso up in
thoir Uiouhumls end march to tho polls 1
should liko to know what thoro is on this
earth that could step them I" And In the
momentary silence wnich followed this
peroration a itill, small voice remarked;
"A mouM!" •«■*-

At the last meeting of the counoil of

passed calling the attention oftho post*
matter general to thu fact thnt the
morning mail from Vancouver to this
oity is carried on ncayuse. The board

if tho subsidy wns net sufficient to justify tho rujiniug of a stage the mail
had better bo carried by railway.

The Minstrel--.
Goodyear, Cook & Dillon's min-
Btrels, 20 in number, arrived this
morning aud gavo a street parade nt
noon, The attraction of the parade
wns the white coats and lints worn by
the minstrels- which gavo tho whole a
neat and prosperous appearance. The
music was capital. The principal features of tho entertainment to-night
will be the singing in the first part, iu
whioh Mr. Elsworth Cook, who hns a
wonderful soprano voiee and can go
with ease to high C, will tako part.

Early Closing.
Tho merchants of Victoria, Vancouver and Nanaimo aro moving in the
direction of establishing early closing
hours during tho summer months, and
it is nothing but right nnd proper thnt
the business men of Westminster
should follow suit. During tlm summer months is the only time our young
men nre able to obtain the recreation
necessnry Lo health nud vigor, and if
they aro cooped up in offices, nr behind counters, from 7 a.m. till 10 p.
m. they cannot bo expected to show
thnt interest in their busines-i whicli
would bo the case were tha hours oiisi-
er. "All work and no piny makes
Jack ndull hoy," which adngu if con-
considered by employers will bo admitted to contain n very useful mornl.
Let the business men draw up un
agreement to closo, say at 7 p.m. for
the summer months, and thus t-ive
their clerks a chance for recreation.
Ihe merchant who would not sign mi'
agreement of this kind does not deserve public patronage.

Elliot, all of Langley, woro hoard be*
fare Captain Pittendrigh and Mr. Mc*
Tiernau J, P.'s. Tho cuso arose out
of Whito putting a sister-in-law of
Wilkie-t1 out of his storo and using
insulting language towards hor. When
Wilkie heard that his sister-in-law hnd
boon abused, he went to I ho store and
nfter somo words with White assaulted
him. Elliott wns present nnd was
charged with aiding and abetting
Wilkie. White took out warrants
against both parties nnd the hearing
was fixed for to-day. The evidence
went to show thnt Wilkie assaulted
White, but as thero wero extenuating
circumstances the magistrates only
fined Wilkie §5,00 and costs. Tho
case against Elliot wns dismissed with
costs against plaintill*. It is probable
this case will lead to another of a more
soriouB nature, and which was the
cause of present proceedings, Mr. J.
E. Gaynor conducted tho case for
tho defendant. Mr. White conducted
his own cose.

Choral In Ita Cm cert.
The Oddfullows' Hnll waa comfortably filled last night with one of the
most enthusiastic audience! .which hns
yet greeted the Choral Union. Part 1
consisted of Mendelssohn's Motett,
'•Hear my Prayer," tho difficult solo
pnrt of which wns tnken by Mrs. Sillitoe, who, ns usual, was ulfnost perfection. Part 2, Spohr's Cantata, "God,
Thou art Great, in which the solo
parts were taken by Mre. Smith, Miss
Major, MisB DeBeck, Mr. Lyal and
Mr. H. Wilson, was a grand effort, the
chorus being especially good. After a
ohort intermission, Mr. H. Morey
opened the last part of tho pr gramme
bv rendering selections, on tha organ,
:"': Hnyea and Gounod. Ti o audi-
c i o r.pprcciated this fine musical por-
uoiince, and were generous in their
il; plnuso, "TheOld Garden," by Mrs,
J..cCrndy, cung with beautiful e.-.pres-
cion una charming sweetness, t nplivflt-
eti tlie cudience, who olamored tor nn
encore until tho singer was ol liged to
respond. The instrumental trie, from
Beethoven, by Messrs. Dyke and Mr.
Tuck wns well received, but wns a little
too Legend bewildering to bo thoroughly r.pp-eciated. It is nearly a
year since Mrs. Moresby last ang in
publio, but her song, "By His Side,"
showed that thu sweetness nnd power
of her voice had not suffered diminish-
incut. In fnct, thu long rest teems tu
have brought about nn improvement
and her effort wns indeed a treat. She
wns most heartily upplauded. "The
La-it Muster," by Mr. Lyal, was the
most successful performance yet given
by that gentleman. TIhl. eona was
ably sung and merited tiro generous
applause bestowed an it. "Ato Marin,"
by Miss McBrido, was delightfully
rendered, and the general impression
was convoyed Unit Westminster is not
favored often enough by this talented
songstress. An encore wan deinaiidod
unci given. "If Doughty Deeds," by
Mr. Dookerill, was well received, but
tho singer was by no means in his
usual voico. "Song of tlio Vikings,"
by the full chorus, was rendered in
grand style.
His Lordship, Bishop Sillitoe, ably
conducted the concert. Mrs, Trew
presided at tho piano and Miss DeBeck
and Mr. Morey itt the organ.
Kootenai's   Industry.
Mr. G. M. Sproat came down from
Kootenay a few dnys ago and is a guest
at tho Oriental Hotel. He says that
the result of the winter's work in West
Kootenay district confirms tho expectation that the district - will bs very
rich, both in gold and silver. Experienced miners aro surprised at the rich*
ness and quantity of the ore, nnd ex
press tho opinion thnt without a doubt
tho district, more particularly in its
southern subdivis:on, will soon be a
valuable productive area. There nre
mnny very good "prospects," both of
silvor nnd gold, wiih tt radius of half n
dozon miles from Nolson—tlmt is iu
thu Toad Mountain Camp. Equally
promising aro the mining prospects at
tho Hot Springs and Hondry, four
camps on Kootenay Lake, thirty miles
from Nelson, About 750 tons of ore,
mostly of high grado, nre ready for
shipment now, and production and
shipment will continue throughout the
season. Tho rivers nro open, and men
nre going in. In other parts of the
district, namely ut Illicillewaet and
Big Bund, prospects also nro good.
Tho decision of the mineral question
relieves the minds of both prospectors
nud iuteuding investors. Without
derogating fiom the value of other
districts, West Ko ■•(.•■iny, in the opinio: of many competent authorities,
pminUos not only to be the chief gold
and mining district in the province,
Iv' - robably one of tho moBt remark-
r.'.lo on the continent. Lumbering.

Beforo T. C. Atkinson, P. M.
Charles Stark pleaded guilty of being drunk and disorderly and was
fined $10, or one month in gaol.
Antonio Carroli acknowledged to
having been drunk and incapable, and
was ordered to puy $2: GO or go to gaol
for 10 days.
Manuel Murinnn, a desperate and
cutthrout looking Italian, was charged
with Inrceuy from from the person of
one Rosiu, an Indian woman. He
denied the chnrgo. Rosie took the
stand and proceeded to explain her loss.
She was profusely decorated in u black
nlpaca dross, with red tape trimmings,
neatly draped down the hack and perforated at intervals under tho arms.
Round her neck was n (laming red
handerchief tied in a bow knot, nnd
fastened to iho bodice with a broken
darning needle. Hor hat was broad
inthe brim, rakish in appearance and
trimmed with crushed strawberry
and old gold ribbons, tho whole surmounted with n huge pale blue wing
with a black tip. The tout ensemble
of her nppeurnnce was striking and
unique, and it is scarcely necessary to
add that she wus tho observed of all
observer-*. Rudju explained that Bhe
went to bed nt pence with the world
and wiih 85,00 and two rings hidden
in her bosom, Whon Bho awakened
Muriana was sitting on her bod and the
monoy nnd thu rings wero gono. The
police gave evidence hb to the arrest of
Murinnn, nnd the finding of tho rings
on his person.
His honor -sentenced tlio accused to
G months in gaol, with hard labor.
Wm. Baronly pleaded guilty to being drunk and wus charged the usual
fee of $2.50 for his night's lodging in
tho civic hosto.
Louis Trommor, » German, was
oharged with 8'ealing leather and
findings from Mr. Jas. Rosseau, and
pleaded not guilty. Mr. Jenns appeared for defendant nnd obtained a
remand of three daya.
THE LADIES DELIGHTED.
Tho pleasant effect nud tho perfect
safety with which ladies may use the
liquid fruit laxative, Syrup of Figs, un*
der all conditions make it their favorite
remedy. It is pleasing to tho eye nnd to
the taste, gentle, yot effectual in acting
on the kidneys, liver and bowels.

THERE'S a hower of rosea by Bende-
moer'B stream,
And the nightingale sings round it all
tlie day long;
Twas sweet in the time of my childhood's
young dream
To sit mid tho roses and hear the birds'
That hower and its roses I never forget;
Aud oft, while alone, tn the bloom of
the year,
I think, "Is the nightingale sinning there
yet?"
Are the roses still bright hy the calm
llendemeer.
No; the flowers soon withered that linng
o'er tho wave;
lint some blossoms were gathered while
freshly thoy shone,
And a dew was exaled from their petals
which gave
All the fragrance of summer when
summer was gone.
The above lines from Moore's "Lallah
Rookh" are naturally recalled to mind
upon catching the odors of those Matchless Quadruple Ked Letter Extracts of
