New Yoiik, Jan.  29.—AU surface

stroot lines, aro tied uj) tliiajnorning
on account of the company's refusal to
grant nn advance of 25 cents* per dny
jin all §225 a day) for 10 hours work
in 12 conaeculivo hours.*  The strikers
this moruiiig aro  grouped  on  street
corners along tho routes of the various
roads and at the stables of the company
awaiting developments.   PioketB have
been thrown out in all  directions to
intercept and question  all  men  who
may upproach tho head-quarters of tho
tied up lines on tho suspected   crrnnd
of taking tho strikers'  placo.    Pulico
reserv-H woro on duty laat night in all
station  houses    in    anticipation  of
trouble.     TliiB  morning precautions
ngaiiiBt an outbreak  nro  redoubled.
Patrol wagons are hold,'in readiness
and a strong force of police is assem-
blod nt soveral points to  respond  to
any call.   Some railroad officials  express themselves determined to send
out cars, und ho one can foretell what
the result may be, sb the strikers say
they will use all efforts to prevent the
running of cars.    At 4 o'clock  thia
morning dHciulB of the Grand street
lino tiotifiod the police they would aond
out a car.   Tho  reserves were immediately ordered out  from  Delancy
street Btation.   Somo of  tho police
were    placed   about the company's
stables and others at tho foot of Grand
atroet.   Shortly beforo six  o'olock a
car was drawn from the stable down to
the starting point and a howling mob
of strikers surrounded it.   A hollow
square of stalwart policemen formed
about tho car and drew their long
nightsticks.   The mob did nothing
but howl and the noise roused the inmates of tenements, who swarmed to
the leeno, all in  sympathy  with  tho
strikerB.   At last the car started and
tho crowd followed.   As the car passed
tho corner of Goerck street a truck
waa tossed across  tho  track.   Policeman Oormann was stationed hore, and
ho a-tempted  to get near but was
airiicdoff hisfeetby the  mob.   The
truck was finally removed and the car
proccduri.   Between Rldgo and Pitt
streets it waa obstructed by  a  truck,
nnd at the corner of Gruud and Attorney   streets another  wagon  waa
overturned on the track.   -The car ran
up to tbis latter obstruction and stopped.   Thia waa tho signal for a  wild
yoU from tho crowd and a dash  was
mado for the car.   The police ordered
tho crowd to stand and drew thoircIubH1
Fcr a timo the mob wavered but boco
bogan to advance.   The police again
warned tho mob and stood ready with
uplifted batons to sail  in*   Suddenly
tho horso was unhitched, the car raised
and thrown across the  tiuok.   Meantime tho police were in a hand to hand
conflict with the mul. and thu blown of
tho loim.-it could bo heard ou all sidoa
aa thoy ilacohded upon tho   hoads of
tlio rioturs.   Police detachments cauio
running up from all sides and tho now
arrivals attacked the crowd from the
ro.u* and in a few moments the crowd
began to scatter and were finally driven
off and the policemen gained the day.
One of the ringleaders, Oharles Flan*
nigan, a driver, was arrested.   The
crowd demanded his release,  but tho
polico surrounded him nnd took him to
Dolancoy Btreet station house,   Whili
thia was going on the car was righted
uud tho horses recaptured and hitched
and tho car returned to Ihe stables.
No more violence was attempted.

the conservatives.
The Tinm says that Englishmen are
curious to know the value of Bismarck's assertion that Germany is
absolutely one with England with regard to the Samoa difficulty. Jt is
hard to believe that England will approve the deportation of King Malietoa
or the intervention of Germany. The
Standard endorses remarks of Bismarck.

FIERCE WAR.
London, Jan. 29,— Stanhope, secretary of stato for wnr, addressed n meeting in Lincolnshire last evoning. Ho
Baid a thunder cloud waa hanging over
Europe nnd that sooner or later it
tvoiiU burst, bringing tho fiercest and
most horrible war cvor known. It
wns impossible to view tho preparations
for war now being made throughout
Europo without fouling that war was
approaching. Ho hoped however that
the wisdom of England's statesmen
wuuld prevent that nation from becoming involvod,
William's birthday.
Berlin, Jan. 27.—On tho occasion
of the thirtieth anniversary of his birth,
the Emperor to-day recoivod at Whitehall Castle, a number of the sovereigns
of the German stato*, Prince Bismarck
and the imperial ministers, Count Von
Moltke, the Diplomntic Corps, many
Knights of the Rod uud Black Eagle,
and a large number of othor distinguished persons, all of whom congratulated the Kaiser on his birthday. Tho
guards' colors were removed from the
old palace to the castle. Thn Emperor
in issuing an order eulogising tho
guards nnd lauding their achievements,
exprcised tho hopo of his ability to
maintain the glory of tho several
Prussian regiments which had received
the names of famous families which
had been connected with their traditions of gloriouB and honorable deeds.
The enthusiasm in Berlin and the
province' over tlie event is very groat.

Mayor lleudry's Inangarai Address a
•Urand Effort.   A Carefol Summary
or me city_ waits.
Tho new oity oouncil met last night
at 8 o'olock for the transaotion of business. An unusually large audience
was present, attracted, no doubt, by
tho announcement that Mayor Hendry
would deliror his inaugural address.
Before tlio proceedings commenced
Mr. Robson, city clerk, read the report
of tho returning oflicer in the late civio
elections. Present, Aldermen Curtis,
Ewen, Calbick, Scoullar, Reid, Mc-
Phuden, Townsend, Cunningham and
Jaques.
His Worship Mayor Hendry announced that ho wiihed, before taking
up business matters, to address the
board on somo points which he aaked
them to take into consideration. The
address waa ns follow*.;—
Gkntlembn:—Before ontering upon
tho business of a now civic jenr, it
may bo proper for me, ns presiding
officer, to refer briofiy to some of thu
quuHtions which I think ought to ou-
gage your earnest attention. As this
U Tliu first thrio I huvo hud the honor
• f occupying the position to which the
pLiiple of this city have just been good
enough to elect tno, it will not be
necessary to refer pnrticularly to past
records. It will bo our duty to take
up nnd carry to completion any unfinished schemes left by tbe lato council which may recommend themselves
to our judgment, and to address ourselves with energy to the inauguration
and carrying on of whatever new enterprise may bo called for by the rapid
expansion and growing importance of
our fair city. Wo havo just entered
upon a new era iu our civic history,
aud it remains largely with you, gentlemen, whether it shall not be marked
as u new era in our commercial history
as well. The new charter under which
the affairs of this city are hereafter to
be administered gives larger powers of
action tlian have hitherto been enjoyed, and it will be ours to see that
thia increased authority and freedom
are used in such away as to promote the
city's beat interests. Among the subjects that will claim your attention
first, is
THE KEW CHARTER.
It is a matter of regret to many citizens that the clauses of this act had
not received more consideration before
it was placed in the statute book, for
we all know now many changes will bo
necessary before the new machinery
can bo mado to work with the smoothness und harmony _o much desired. I
would recommend you to study the
charter carefully, bo thnt the needed
amendments may bo intelligently
placed beforo the legislature. And
while wo aro amending it mny bo
proper for you to consider whether the
boundaries of tho city might not bo
further enlarged so as to include all
the territory shown on the official map.
I nm of opinion that this could be
done without prejudice to any publio
or private interest.
THE SOUTHERN   RAILWAY
will nccuEsary claim a first plnco in tho
pro£r.immo for tho year. This ia the
largert undertaking ever utsumed by
any municipal corporation in British
Columbia, and it is expected to add
vastly to tho rapidly increasing importance of the city, and placo it first
among tho cities of this provinco iu
respect to commercial and manufacturing ndvnntagea, Ab au expression of
the public mind respecting this enterprise, you have before you the by-laws
passed almost unanimously by the
ratepayers guaranteeing a bonus of
8150,000 ; and it will be the duty of
the council to Bee that tho city receives
the fullest possible value for this large
expenditure, and that tho taxes necessary to meet the debentures and interest ure ao adjusted as to impose the
least possible burden upon the people.
.STREET   IMl'ROVEMENTS
will demand your careful attention
during tho whole of the year. Tho
enlargement of our boundaries make*
it imperative that many new Btreets
shall be opened up, and the credit of
our city demands the completion of
several streets which for many yeara
have been suffered to remain in a half
finished oondition. Tho appropriation
available for street work this year
must, therefore, be greatly increased.
As the era over which theso worka
must bo spread is now quite extensive,
and the works thetnaetves promise to
be on a larger scale than those ot any
former year, it will bo well to consider
whether the time haa not arrived when
the city ahould secure the services of a
competent civil ougiueer ub a permanent officer of tho corporation, whose
duty it would be to tako charge of all
public works.
PUBLIC GROUNDS.
The city having obtained possession of
a portion of tho reserve laid out by
Col. Moody as u public park, I am of
opinion that the council should tako
Btopa this year to improve and beautify
that possession bo ns to mako it at*
tractive nud suitable ss a place of
recreation, lu connection with this it
ia to bo remembered thut the next provincial exhibition is to be held in this
oity next fall, and the exhibition
building* will probably bo located on
the pnrk grounds. I would recommend that immediate steps be taken,
therefore, to have theso grounds mado
available for this, and for tho purpose
for which thoy were originally intended.
WATER AND SEWERAGE.
Neither tho timo nor the resources of
this council will be sufficient to carry
out nil tho works urgently required,
and it may bo found impossible thii
year to establish a complete system of
water-works and sewerage. Nevertheless I think it proper to recommend
you carefully to consider these very
important works, and, if possible, so
innture plans for thoir construction
that your succoHora may find at least
the foundution laid upon which they
•hull be able to build without misgiving. This ia a matter in which you
would bo greatly assisted by the city
engineer if you think proper to make
auch un appointment,

$toilg British Columbian
Tuesday evening, Jan. an, 1889.
Wo devote considerable spuco to-
duy to municipal nmtters, but no
apology is required, us wo aro sure
our readers will bo deeply interested
just now in the sayings nnd doings
of our new und progressive city
council. This body held thoir first
meeting last night, and by the nearly full report on another page it will
bo seen that the new council got
through considerubli! work nnd inaugurated what proini.si-s to be an
energetic and memorable civic year,
in a characteristic and fitting manner, Tho appointments made call
for passing notice. That of Mr. J).
Robson, pro tern, city clerk, appointed as city clerk, ut a salary of $125
per month, is an excellent one. So
far ns filling every requirement of
the office is concerned, we aro convinced that no bettor appointment
could havo been made, and tho position is a most important one, und
involving very arduous duties. Thnt
it .will be competently and creditably filled, the council by their wiso
selection last night linve insured.
The appointment of Mr. A. F. Cotton as city treasurer, assessor, surveyor, engineer, -to., at a salary, also, of $125 per raonth.is amply (justified from the consideration of tbe
duties which such un officer will be
called upon to perform during the
ensuing year at least. The new city
charter calls for a city treasurer,
apart from the clerk, wbo must devote considerable of his time every
day to the duties of his office.* The
thorough revision of the assessment
roll this year, and the additions that
must be made thereto, to say nothing of tbo work laid out for n surveyor, engineer, tic, added to the
duties of treasurer, will occupy nil of
Mr. Cotton's time profitably for tho
city, nnd tho salary is not out of
proportion to the services required.
The new officer has been selected
on his known capability and fitness,
nnd on good recommendations. Tho
other appointments were confirmations and approvals of the appointments of the previous council, nnd in
the case of polico magistrate, for
which position there was a new applicant, tbe action of the council is
to be commended in retaining Mr.
T. 0. Atkinson.
Mayor  Hendry's inaugural   address, which we publish to-day, is a
distinctly business-like document —
nothing extravagant,   bombastic or
spread-eagle about it, and no redundancy    of   expression.   But   the
various subjects touched upon in tho
address are treated in a stylo which
shows that tho   mayor thoroughly
understands   what  ho  is  talking
about,   that  he  has   intelligently
grasped the present situation,   prospects, and requirements of the city,
and is prepared to direct and aid the
aldermanio board   in  energetically,
and yet  cautiously,   administering
the civic government in the  city's
best  interests,   commercially   and
otherwise.   To review the  address
briefly, we   would strongly second
Mayor Hendry's  recommendation,
when referring to the necessity of
amendments to the new city  charter, that the council should''consider
whether the boundaries of the city
might not be further enlarged so as
to include nil the territory shown on
the official city map."   It  is not a
matter for congratulation that  the
new charter requires such extensive
revision, but since it does, let it bo
done well, und any advantago  thot
the city can obtain, with an eye   to
the immediate or even more remote
future, should be secured now. That
it will be an advantage, considering
our prospects and our  evident destiny, to lmve the city limits extended as suggested above, must be  apparent,    The city is growing rapidly
now—already residences have boon
built  outside   of   the   limits,   although   iiio-t of these will   be  included in the addition of 400 acres
made   by   the   new charter sofar.
It is  proper to  add here that the
supplementary   addition   suggested
by tho mayor would' increase the
area .within   iho  city limits  still
further  hy about a thousand acres,
"We want lots of room  for  expand-
, ing, and, thon, un extension of  our
city limits means a  lower rate  of
taxation, an equalization of the burden, and ot tho same   time  an   increased revenue, evon if it does  imply  also  enlarged   responsibilities
and   ipcreased   expenditures,    By
all means, extend the  limits.   The
njoyor's utterances with respect   to
the Southern   Bailway, taken   together with the known ability   and
integrity of the council as a whole,
must oonvince anyone that the  interests of tbat important enterprise, j
as well as of the city, will be   carefully safeguarded and insured. With
regard to street improvements,  extensions,  &ct a very satisfactory
fcreoait is given in the address, and
the suggestion that a oity civil engineer  may   be  needed to look after
pttfeU* Wits  is W nod one.   The
services of sueh. l»n pflloer  will  undoubtedly \_e required in laying the
forfndfttion for prpper water, works
and sewerage systems.    WJiile de-
liberation and oMtion. m recom
mended by (he mayor, fill be neues
sary in theso matters, we believe
that the counoil cannot be too forei
bly impressed with tho desirability,
not to say necessity, of hastening by
every uioans in their power tho time
when this city shall be properly
furnished as regards water and
sewerage. These questions will
brook no causeless delay. No one,
of course, would be so unreasonable
as to imagine that proper comprehensive water works and sewerage
systems should be inaugurated nnd
completed within the brief space of
less than a twelve month, but we
think, with the mayor, that the
foundation, at kast, should be laid
during the current year. The re-
commondation witli regard to the
new city park grounds, "that immediate steps should bo taken to
havo these grounds made available
for the coming provincial agricultural exhibition, and for the purposes for which thoy were intended,"
will, we aro safe iu saying, meot
with tho hearty approval, not only
of the various members of the council, but of the citizens generally.
Tho remarks on tho proposed city
ball and city market are of the right
Gort, as also those, under the head of
"Commercial Avenues," referring to
the navigation of the Fraser, the
improvements at its mouth, and
other kindred matters. Tho following clause from the mayor's address,
in connection with the#river improvements, cannot be too strongly
emphasized: " These improvements
ought to have the constant
attention of the oity council until they have been carried out so
us to admit to the Fraser without
hindrance tho Inrgest ships afloat."
Happily this much-to-be*dcsircd consummation is quite within tho limits
of easy accomplishment, nnd that it
will be accomplished, and that before long, is certain. Tho channel
has been improved to a marked do
gree already, and the further appropriations to which this work,
from its importance, is entitled, and
must receive, will speedily insure
this last and only condition that is
wanting to give Westminster the
highest status as a seaport on the
Pacific Coast. The address also
gives duo prominence to the desirability of a daily mail and traffic route
between this city nnd' the municipality of Richmond, and the mayor's
suggestion with respect to a bridge
at the head of Lulu Island, and the
reference to winter navigation on
tho river, should have, and no doubt
will secure the best attention of the
council. The mayor's remarks with
respect to increased assessment and
a lower rate of taxation ure uppro-
priute to the circumstance- und the
occasion. Towards the conclusion
of the address tho mayor enunciates
tho following maxim for city government, which contains much boilfcd-
down wisdom and also an indication
of the principles that may be expected to control in municipal business during the year; "The affairs
of the corporation should be as fur
as possible conducted upon the same
general principles as govern the
conduct of private enterprises."
Tlie closing exhortations breathe the
right spirit, and are worthy of the
nttention, and adoption in practice,
of the council as a Irody, If the affairs of the city during the ensuing
year are conducted, "honestly and
earnestly," on true business principles, and "without fear, favor or affection," not only the mayor and aldermen, but the citizens as a whole,
will have reason to be proud of our
civic record for 1889.

Where groea things greenly blow*
Where, soldlor-iii-D, tho cabbage-heads
Aro ranged in many a-row;
Whero radishes and sugar beets,
Uy poarly showers nurat.
With nofue and othor garden sweets
Upon my vision burst. '*,
I often pauBO and fondly muse
Upon those sprouts galore;
But all the garden truck we uso
I purchase at the store.        •*,-,
It's pleasant, In my slippered feet,
When smiles the rosy morn, -
To linger at the garden seat

To note within tho -nailing tree A
The meny piping wrens,       '*.
And from my egg-plants, blowing fret,
, To chase my neighbor's hens. &****•

' And watch the succotash. '

Or e'on when I can fork
Out twenty dolls, per moon to pay
Tho gentleman from Cork. ...
It Is a garden for the oyo
That every pasiar scans, -
For my roal garden I must buy
All roady-mado ln cans.
My garden is a spot serene -
Whero blows tho mixed tea-roio,
And apples drop from bowers green
And dislocate my npie,

And how I buy store beets and pease,

THE SENATORS STORY.
A Hasty  Speech for Which  He
Dearly Paid.
"Well," said tho Senator, aa he selected
a frosh cigar and reached ovor for a match,
"you may not think it, but. I came mighty
near being hung onco."
Tho wholo party stared. Any one less
lil-clv to bo accused of Borious crime than
our host - a distinguished lawyer and State
Sen-.;»r of California-it would have been
hard lo imagine.
"How was that}" X asked.
11 When I was a young chap I got my
sheepskin from Dartmouth, and as I had a
few dollars, I mado my way out to thla
Stain. I mined for awhile, and then wont
to Sacramento, where I hung out my
Bhinf'lo and waited for business. It was
litci'iilly a shingle, too, painted by myself.
I aoon after mot a girl, Folly Sinclair, the
dn.i-7.itcr of Robert Sinclair, a builder, j
Th.-.*.-) wero not bo many girls there then, i
and Polly had plenty of fellows after her. I
But. somehow Bhe took a shine to me, poor
no I was, and t was as much in lovo with
her as u man could bo.- Her people did not
liko mo, though, and naturally enough, too,
for I wus only a poor, straggling lawyer,
nnd thoy thought Polly could do better.
Her brother was specially againat mo. Poor
Dob, _x>rhrip_1 was to blamo most In tho
muttoi*. Anyway, Folly and I had found
out that wo cared for oach othor, and ono
night, whon wo woro walking togothor. wo
mot Dob. Ho began by colling mo all the
names bn could think of, ond my temper
boing nono of tho boat, I got mad.
"Folly kept begging mo not to quarrel,
and at last I turned away, leaving hor with
him. As I loft I said to him that wo would
moot again, when X would make him explain his words.
"I wns so oxottod that I could not go
homo, and I walked along tho road for, I
should think, Avo miles from thb' town.
Thon I turned and walked back, went to
my room, and, being tired out, went to
sleep.
" In the morning I was waked up by the
sheriff, and arrested for murdering Dob.
Tho poor follow had been found in' the
street with his head crushed in by a blow
from behind, and every thing ho had with
him taken. Thoro wore a dozen witnesses
to what I had said to bim and to the quarrel
No one had seen mo during the ovenlng; my
boardlng-houBO keeper had not soon mo
como In, and altogether things looked
rothor block for me. Tho only thing in my
favor, and that was littlo enough, waa that
thore was nothing ot poor Bob's found In
my possession.
"Woll, I was locked up in tho old jail,
and to toll you the truth, I didn't sec my
way out ot the trouble. Every ono in to.vn
bolievod mo to be guilty, ond thero waa
somo talk about lynching me out of hand.
When I say every one, I must make an exception. Polly, bless her, boliovod in nfo
stlll, although her father was ono ot the
bittcrost. naturally enough.
"I had been In jail about ten days, when
one day tho door ot my cell opened, and
Bolly came in. How sho managed to persuade Sheriff Hughes to let her see mo, I do
not know, but she did somehow,
"I am not going to toll you what sort of a
mooting that was; I could not if 1 would.
Of course, I told her I was innocent of poor
Bob's death, and sho sobbed out hor beUof
In mo as I hold her in my arms. At last sho
whispered her plan to mo. I was to escape,
and the dear girl shored a file Into my
pocket as she talked,
"No one, she sold, ln Stockton would
ever believe that I Was innocent; and if I
did not ran away I would bo hung. As for
herself, she would try to prove my Innocence, and if she succeeded we would bo
married. It not, then she would never
tnarry any one else. Naturally, I said 1
would stand my trial, as I was innocent;
but when Polly pressed mo as to how I was
to prove this, I did not-know. She talked
and begged, and at last I consented. So, as
Sheriff Hughos como back, Bho hud to lcavo
mo.
" I did not like tho job, but still I worked
away with the tile, and as tho bars wero
prctiy poor stuff, I got one of tbem out. I
crawled through and reached tho street,
and then mado my way along it towards tbo
odgt. of tho town. I was to strike out across
tlk' plains, biding tn tho day-timo nnd trav*
eliii-* at nights only. I reached the open
country, and just about daylight lay down
to sleep In a hollow, between two ridges.
1 could not sleep long, howover, and after a
time I was lying there wido awako. I got
so nervous at last that I mode up my mind
to -,-t) on, and started onco moro. I had uot
boon walking very long, and, as you may
suppose, I was taking advantage ot overy
bit of cover that I oodld get, when I saw a
long line of men riding over the plains toward me. With them were any number of
dogs, for, although wo hsd no bloodhounds
lu thoso days, thoro were kits of dogs who
would bark at a stranger if tbey saw ono.
" Uantletneo, my heart seemed to stand
still. Although I didn't wont to cscapo at
first, now that I had, It seemed to mo doubly
bitter to be retaken. I do not know how
to explain It to you, but tho second capture
was far worse than the first But what
could I doi There wasn't a *re« 'or milos—
there ins ao broken groanA not recks to
hide hi, Nothing but that wide rolling
plain, ahd that lino of mon Blowly riding towards me.  It mado mo tool slok.
"I took the only chanoelhad, and lay
down in o hollow place whero thoy might
overlook mo, and so I waited. I oould hoar
tho shouts of tho mon as they como nearer,
hear tho barking of tho dogs, and I could do
nothing, I tell1 you I seemed to fairly
molt with perspiration. At lost thoy camo
quito ctose. A dog saw mo and boguuto
bark, t sprang to my foet, and as I did So
a man fired at me and shot me in the
shoulder, which is stiff yet. This man was
John Bogart, tho deputy sheriff. Of courso
thero was uo fight— I had nothing to fight
Vith, Sheriff Hughos odmo up, put me ou
a horse, ond back wo wont to town. This
time-had shackles fastened to my foot.
My case was worso than boforo, because
overy one was now suro that I had hillod
boor Bob. I tellyou I paid dearly for that
^tf23t ** M-flM. W -mm
known, and Polly, as soo has told moslncp.
was noavly bosldo herself at tho result.
Sho blamed herself for It all, espcciully fo
every ono Lold hor that my running awLj
proved my guilt. Tho poor girl got Bit-it
with anxiety and fear, and had to tako to
■her bod. -
"Meantime* tke timo for my trial was
coining mighty near, and I do not believo
that a juryman could have beon found ln
Sacramento to say that I was not guilty. In
fact, any twelve men would novo son*
tenced mo without hearlngtho evidence. My
shoulder bothered me not a littlo, too, and
Bogart, tho jailor, used to tell mo, with a
grin, I must got woll In time for tho 'ceremony,' as ho called the hanging. Cheerful,
wasn't iti
"Ono ovenlng, Po^y, who was gotting a
littlo stronger, was sitting on tho porch of
thoir house, when sho saw a nan walking up
tho stroot. Sho has always said sho does
not know why sho did it, but something
mado hor follow him. Sho juat could not
help It. Sho did follow hlm down a by-lane,
until he reached a hillock of sand just outside of tho town. On the further sido of tliis,
sho saw him dig somo things up which bo
put into his pockets. Then, after filling In
tho hole, ho mado his way back, passing
close to whoro the girl was crouching behind ii pilo of rubbish, so closo that she roc*
oguii-c-tl him. Sho followed him again, and
ninv him walk towards tho jail. Hunching
thut building, ho wont into a littlo houso at
ono sido, and Polly crept softly up, and
looked through a crack botweon two of tho
boards.
" What sho saw was enough to mako hor
go to tho sheriff's houso as fast as sho could
walk. Hughes bad gone to bed, but Folly
insisted on his getting up and talking to hor.
Whon he hoaro*. hor story, he put on his hat,
wont out and got threo men he knew, and
mado his way with them to the houso by tho
jail. Hero thoy walked in, and 'quietly
searched the room; ■   *'ll ,       ran
" I supposed you havo guessed what thoy
found. All of poor Bob's things—bis watch,
his monoy, n revolver with his naino on it,
aud his pipo, wero hidden away under a
board in tho floor under the bed. It was
while thoy were looking at tho things that a
step was heard, and tho door opened for a
second. Beforo they could jump, the man
had turned and run, only to fall Into tho
anus of stout Mike Cussidy, tbe guard
Hughos hod loft by tho door, with ordors to
lot anyono In, but no ono out; and whon
thoy hauled the man back into tho room
where the light was, Hughes bad the pleasure of looking at his own deputy and jail*
kcopor, John Bogart."
"To mnko a long story short, Bogart was
tho guilty man, and ho took a moro promt*
nent part iu tlio 'ceremony' than ha had an*
tie untied. As it afterwards turned out, l*.
had'cn_iio*-zlcd some money belonging to tbe
county, uud hearing tbat Bob had several
thousand dollars with him which he was
taking borne, ho had stolen up behind him In
tho street aud crushed in his head with an
iron bnr. Ho might not have done it bad ho
not heard of tho quarrel bntwoon Bob and
mysolf. In tho morning, whon tho body,
was discovered, he had suggested that I was
tho murderer,and, of course, tho suggestion
was taken up. Ho confessed every thing
before he died.
"Tho noxt day Polly insisted bn telling
me tho news, and, naturally, she was allowed to. I am not going to say any thing
about that meeting, but aftor we had been
togothor an hour Hughos came in, saying ho
wanted to congratulate mo, too. it was not
long boforo I was out on bail, and peoplo
could not do enough for me. I got cases as
fast as 1 could tako thorn, and it was not
long boforo I was as prosperous ao I hud
boen poor boforo. As for Polly—why, if
you have dono smoking, wo can join hor ia
the parlor."—Alfred Batch, in N.  Y, LeilQtr,
PECULIAR ENGLISH.
Bow tk Foreign Lady AttonUliod Her Yankee Servant and a Carpenter.
Several instances of tho amusing blunders
foreigners make In speaking English aro
givon lu a recont number of tho Provldonco
Journal. A lady who had learned English
In n school In Europe, when, sho was accounted wonderfully proficient in our language, came to America to tako ohnrgo of
an establishment
Brought face to face with the practical requirements of evory-duy life, hor English
proved loss comprehensive and accurate
than might havo been wished, und tho evidences that hor vocabulary had boon painfully collected from a dictionary, rather
than from living speech, gave a good deal of
amusement to thoso around her.
On ono occasion she wished to direct a
servant to kill a chicken, nnd, aftor plucking it, to bring hor tho fouthors. The form
which her directions took was: " Dio mo
that beast, and bring mo his vestment."
Perplexing as the servant' must have
found this order, bis astonishment can
hardly havo beon equal to that of a carpenter, to whom was addressed a still 'moro
amusing blundor by this lady* Bhe hod an
iutorviow with him ln reference to somo
alterations sho thought of undertaking In
her dwelling, but found tbe estimates ho
mado so largo that she determined not to
havo tho work undertaken.
In a short timo, howover, sho found herself so Incommoded by tho state of tho
house, that she decided it would bo ncc-_s*
Bary to havo tho alterations mado, oven at
tho figure namod by tho carpenter. Sho
accordingly sent for bim, and onco moro
carefully explained to him what sho wished
to hnvo dona
To hor surprise the man promptly named
a prico for tho work, which was considerably in advance of the previous estimate,
and his feelings may be imagined whon, In
her consternation, her peculiar English betrayed her into saying:
"Why, sir, you are dearer to me than
When we wero first engaged." If tho car*
penter appreciated a joke, he should have
scaled down his figures,
FELINE STRATEGY.
The Courage with Which the Cat Meets
Iter Canine Bnemles.
Tho mastery of herself which a cat shows
when, having been caught in apo-.tlon from
which there Is no cscapo, sho calmly Bits
down to faco out tho threats of a dog, is a
marvelous thing, soys a writer iu tho Boston _Wt.i--T.pf. Evory body bas scon a kitten on tbo street door-step attacked by adog
ten tttnos ber else, as apparently self-possessed as If sho wore in hor mistress' lap.
If sho turns tall and runs down tho street
she is lost; the dog will have a suro advantage of hor. Even as it Is, if ho could get
up courage enough to solze her on tho spot,
ho would bo able to mako short work of hor.
"You daro not touch mo and you know
it," Is what hor position tolls the dog. But
Bho Is intensely on hor guard, in spite of hor
air of perfect content Hor logs - concoulod
under her fur, aro ready for a spring; ber
claws aro unsheathed, hor eyea nevor move
for an Instant from tho dog; aa ho bounds
wildly from sido to sido, borklnf with comical fury, thoso glittering eyea Of hors follow
hiin with tho keenest scrutiny. If he plucks
up his courage to grab hcr.sho is ready; sho
will sell her lifo dearly. Bhe la watching
her chance, end she does not miss it 'Tho
dog tries Fabian tactics, and withdraws a
fow feet settling down upon hia forepaws,
growling ferociously as ho doee io.
Just then the sound of a dog's bark in tbo
noxt Btreet attracts his eyes and ears for a
moment and when he toon baok tbe kitten
is gone I He looks down tho strcot and
starts wildly m that direction, and reu-hos
a high board fanes just as a cat's tail-a
monstrous tall for sueh a littlo cat—Is van*
lshlug over tho top of It Ho Ib beoten; tho
cat showed uot only moro courage than ho
had but a great deal moro gononilfhlp.

Talk about tho benefits of advertising!
Down in Florida not long ago a family lost
0 child which thoy supposed bad strayed
away from homo ond got lost After searching In vom for threo days tho frantic parents placed an advertisement In the nearest newspaper. Imagine tho aturprlso of
tho parents upon going to tho door the noxt
morning to seo a monster alligator uppn tho
door-step, whoro ho hod disgorged tht? child
olive and than died himself. Tho "ad"
cost them but twenty-five cents, ana tt gavo

Victoria, Jan 29.—A house on

entered the house by tho back door
after climbing over tlie fence into ihe
back yard. Somo old dry codar
shingles wero usod to light the fire,
Jackson, fortunately, returned beforo
the firo gninod much headway, thus
saving his houso nnd preventing what
would probably havo been a most
disastrous lire.
Last night a littlo China boy was

The Black Coil Fisheries.
In view of the success which has attended the skil or black cud fishery iu
British Columbia thia fall, and the
definite location of the fishing grounds
(iff Queen Charlotte Islands, it is not
at ull likely that the department of
fisheries will send out an exploratory
steamer next summer. If, howover,
tho industry attains to anything liko
groat proportions doubtless someaction
will be taken to afford due protection
to thoso engaged in it. It is understood thnt already arrangements havo
been perfected for the establishment
of a supply and store station on one of
the islands in the Queen Charlotte
group, so thut schooners will not be
compelled to return to Victoria with
thoir cargoes or to obtain supplies.—

CORRESPONDENCE.
Queer Correspondent h.
Editor Columbian.—That reply to
"Citizen," which you published yesterday iB just about na incomprehensible as
"Citizen's" correspondence was. "Citizen" said that he voted for the Southern
Railway and signed the bond, and expected that it would put money in his
pocket, and yet, strange to say, lie winds
up his rather ambiguous effusion by declaring that, "to very few outside the
large property-holders docs it make much
•practical difference whether the Southern
Railway is built in '89 or '99." If that
bo his real opinion why did he sign the
bond? Jt seems n stupid waste of tunc to
keep on haggling over n settled question,
The great majority of tbe citizens of Now
Westminster have, over and over again,
at the ballot-box and otherwise, decided
to assist in getting southern connection
by rail. Our legislators, who are supported hy large majorities, havo decreed
that the municipality of the Royal City
shall tax improvements; and the old
proverb says "what can't be cured must
oo endured." The labored answer to
"Citi-jen" says, that if tlio good people
of N. W. will tako his advice, and only
tax "tho market value of lots," Westminstor will witness sueh a building
boom as was never seen before; but he
seems to bo ignorant of tho fact that N.
W. has enjoyed that rare exemption always, yot no such boom has resulted as
is predicted by this On por oent. individual. Witness.

An Explanation,
Hoi-tor Columbian. — In tho last
weekly Columbian, I noticed an urticlo
on "Chilliwhack Temperance," I think
I should give a fow words of explanation,
for the writer of tho letter, in referring
to me as the first speaker at tluj temporanco nicotine, said that 1 did not agree
with Rev. Mr, Patterson's statement
mado in a previous meeting, that "a man
must ho converted before he oan become
a temperance man." The writer of that
letter must not forgot that there are
forms of intemperance more appalling
than the intemperance of tho liquor
traffic. I referred only to tlie liquor
tralllc, nnd asked Mr. I'litterson if ho
understood me, ho snld he did, and did
not seem to consider that I wns disagreeing with him. It is strange indeed that
any person should have misinterpreted
those words. Tho church Is indued the
great agent of moral reform. It is doing
a glorious work, teaching men and women
how to bring up their children, ltlacklo
says: "Primroses grow only in tho spring)
and certain virtues, if they do not put
forth vigorous shoots in youth, aro not
likely to show any luxuriant leafage In
after age," It is organizing in nearly
every part of the globe for benevolence;
endeavoring to carry out the doctrine of
Christ, and to introduce them in all matters and customs to the whole community.
I cannot tell all tho good that tho church
is doing, but such an organization as the
temperance literary society, which we
were endeavoring to form, might reclaim
many drunkards whom tho ohuroh could
not reach. As nn illustration, I said,
"one might as woll say, away with your
{.rohibitory laws against murder, etc.,
et us convert all mon and then there will
be no crimes committed." It Is unfortunate that there are no stenographers here
to take down speeches verbatim. Our
Chilliwhack reporters certainly do not
make a life business of writing newspaper articles. Any person who speaks
at public meetings in Chilliwhack, and
wishes to be rightly understood, will
ha'-o to run around all his life, like a
kitten nfter its tail, explaining nil his
expressions and setting misunderstandings
right. J. T. Wilkini-on,
Chilliwhack, Jan. M, 1889.
that it should possess no better city
hall than the one in which we are now
sitting. The clerical duties connected
with the administration of tho affairs
of tho corporation uro continually increasing, und our present buildings
provide neither adequate accomodation for the civio officers nor ordinary
eufcty for its valuable books and papers. I recommend to your consideration the erection of a suitable city hall;
and I am inclined to think it might bo
so arranged that the interest on the
investment could be moro than mot by
tho income derived from routs. It
may be bost to consider the question
of n market in connection with that of n
city hall, and I hope you will givo this
your careful attention also. Our city
stands in the centre of the finest agricultural district in British Oolumbia,
nnd it ought to be one of your first
courses to secure nnd maintain tho
trade of the farmers by whom we are
surrounded. If you think the establishment of n, market would tend in
this direction, let ub have a market.
COMMERCIAL  AVENUES.
With tho majestic Frasor flowing
past our doors, it would not be possible to cut oft' our oity from easy access to other parts of the country, but
thoro is groat need, nevertheless, that
the commercial avenues through whioh
trade mny pass to nnd from us should
bo increased and improved. Through
the energy of some of our citizens the
work of improving ibe navigation of
the Fraser Rivet- is already well advanced, nnd wo havo seen some of the
fruits of that energy in the presence of
sea-going vessels at our wharves.
These improvements ought to have the
constant attention of tho city couucil
until thoy hnvo been carried out bo as
to admit to the Fraser, without hindrance, the largest ships afloat. Your
attention will also bo called to the importance of establishing a daily mail
nnd traffic routo between this city and
tho flourishing agricultural municipality of Richmond. A petition will be
laid before you nsking for the opening
up of the North Ann rond. It hns also been proposed to build a bridge
over tho North Arm at the head of
Lulu Island nnd connect it with the
rond now partly constructed running
oast and west through that island. , It
is believed that under certain conditions tho provincial government would
aid cither ono or both of the schemes
by a grant of money, or land, or both.
It may bo well for you to consider the
propriety of follow iug out the suggestion
of the board of trade by offering a subsidy for a daily steamboat service to the
North Arm settlements. \o\\ will
also have to consider the question of
winter navigation ou the river.
FINANCE.
The mado of assessment hitherto pursued muat be changed. Tho aggregate
of our assessable pioperty under that
system presents a ridiculous exhibit,
and does serious injustice to tho credit
of our city. I nm of opinion that a
fair nnd reasonable assessment would
show nu aggregate of nt least 82,500,■
000 on the roll. I need not tell yon
thnt nn iiu-rense in the value of assessable property does not imply increased
taxation, but ns tho assessment goes
up the rate goes down. I would
strongly recommend i\ thorough revision of tliu roll, nnd the assessment of
nil property at its actual value. You
ought to consider, nlso, whether the
value of real property should not include improvements thereon. So far
as 1 havo beon able to learn there are
only two cities in tho Dominion where
improvements are not assessed. It hns
beon hinted already that tho requirements of tho city aro now such as to
demand a vory muoh larger revenue.
Tho various enterprises already referred to show whore much of the increased revonuo might be wisely applied. It will be for you to consider,
also, whether substantial inducements
should not be offered for the establishment of other manufacturing industries the promotion of which would be
in tbe city's interest.
MUNICIPAL 11U8IHB8H.
1 would recommend tho various
standing committees to study carefully
the matters pertaining to the committees, and to establish, if possible, a
more consiso and expeditious system
under which to enrry on the public
business of tho city. The affairs of n
corporation should be, as far as possible, conducted upon the ume general principles arj govern tho conduct of
private enterprises, I am very glad
that the ratepayers hnvo seen fit to
select nine gentlemen of such well
known business ability to assist me in
administering the civio government at
a timo when tho city needs the best
available talent, and 1 am confident
you will be able to present a statement at the end. of'the civic year which
shnll givo luufplki proof of the wisdom
of this election. Let mo couniel you
to put aside all considerations of a
personal nature, nnd let us address
ourselves honestly and earnestly to
tho duties which lio beforo us, without
fear, favor or affection. Nature hns
bestowed upon us a rich and valuable
heritage, nnd it is left to our judgment and industry so to uso tlie
