A speoial cable to the JoftitV announces the safe arrival in London

The people of North Dakota are
having quite a contention about the
liquor question, Some of them
want prohibition by constitutional
enactment; others want a prohibitory urticle submitted to a separate
vote, and some contrary "ci
don't want any prohibition
theirs."—Ex.
The Birmingham Age-HercM
declares that it believes strongly in
the separation of the races as the
only true solution to tho problem
that troubles the country, and says:
"If there is any plan by which the
brother in black can bo comfortably
provided for in another land, that
plan should by all means be adopted,
and without delay."
The Eiffel Tower reached its full
height, 1,178 feet, March 31. A
newspaper correspondent who went
to the top says that the ascent by
the staircase took forty minutes,
and hy elevators it is to be made in
five minutes. It is expected that
the eleotrio light on its top will
enable one to read a newspaper at
a distance of seven miles.
A bill was lately introduced into
tho Nebraska legislature forbidding
the "firing of any pistol, revolver,
shotgun, rifle, or any firearms whatsoever on any publio road or highway, or within sixty yards of suoh
public road or highway, except to
destroy some wild, ferocious, and
dangerous beast, or ao oflicer in the
discharge of his duty." Bough on

"Mr. President," observed Col.
Halford to Mr. Harrison this morning, "Have you tried the new
puzzle?" "What puzzle," Elijah.,
enquired the president, gently.'
"Putting the -pigs in the pen,'
Mr. President." A shade came
over tho president's faco. "No
Elijah," said ho wearily. "I have
been so busy trying to keep the hogs
out of office that I haven't had time
for any other puzzle." And the
president picked up a pile of applications and muttered a mutter too
deep to bo articulate.—IFiuiii*^*

A New York letter to the Louisville Courier-Journal says: "The
smo.it girl will, during the coming
season, look like a fish. I suppose her.
adorers will compare hor to Undine,
tho Bheingold maidens, or at least
to a mermaid. Because why)
Because tbe smartest cloth for
bodices just over from Paris is
either of gold or silver sequins,
placed like fish scales. It is excessively becoming, but it will take
nearly all the gold that ever the
Rhino produced to get enough for a
whole bodice, so that tho average
maiden will have to do the sea-
serpent aot in a V-shaped plastron
of the glittering scales. Her purse
will be tried in the balance and
found waiting."
An eastern astrohomor is reported
to have discovered on the surface of
tho planet Venus a white patch
which corresponds in appearance to
one of the pair long sinco watched
through a telescope pointed at Mars.
Tho latter are believed to be caps of
ice at the poles of tho planet, indicating the existence there of zones
of temperature similar to those with
which the earth is belted. The
same thing will now be inferred in
regard to Venus. Tho greater density of her atmosphere is probably
the cause of the delay in recognizing tho caps at her poles. She
is surrounded by a far greater
quantity of air than is tho earth,
while it is believed that the Martial
atmosphere would scarcely balance
twenty inches of mercury in tho
barometer.
The Empire evidently isn't
"stuck ou" our jovial senator; but
then his "politics" doesn't suit tho
Empire, which in a recent issue
says : Senator T, II. Mclnnes, the
burly representative of New Westminster, B.C., by way of Toronto,
never looses an opportunity to have
a fling at the government. His
latest grievance is that British
Columbia is being discriminated
against because such rapid progress
is net being made at the experimental farm station at Agassiz as he
would like. Hon. Mr. Abbott informed him that the aotual reason
why there had been delay in putting
up the buildings was duo to tne fact
that tho title to the land had not
yet been completed. The department was so sanguine that the difficulties in the way would soon be
removed that it was proposed to
commence farming operations this
spring. Tho necessary sheds for
sheltering oattle and cottages for
employes would be put up, but the
erection of the buildings would be
postponed until noxt yoar.

BRITISH COLUMBIA DKFKNCKR
MoNTitEAL, April23--In the house of
commons last night, Ool. Prior, British
Oolumbia, in response to urgent inquiries and letters frum thore, interrogated the government regarding British Columbia defenses, askintr if any
definite arrangements had been concluded botween the Imperial and Can*
adian authorities. Oof, Prior called
attention to the proposed establishment of a navy yard at Seattle, and
said B. 0. was vitally interested. The
minister of militia and defense replied
that the negotiation-* which had been
going on between England and Canada
since 1885 were still in progress, and
wore strictly of a confidential nature,
and it was utterly impossible to enlighten tho Paciiic coast people on the
subject Nothing whatever will be
made public regarding the proposed
defences of B. 0., as it is not considered f*-nod policy to do so.

A VALUABLE PLAYEIt.
New York, April 23,—President
Day, of the N. Y. baseball club, said
thii forenoon, in the office of tha
Sporting Times, lhat Boston could
have Ward for 912,000 if it wants him,
or any other club can have him at
that prico, adding—-"Wo can use Sam
very handily in our business." "It is
rumored you do not care to sell Ward
bocause you are afraid Boston would
then become too strong," remarked a
reporter. -'Afraid! we are afraid of
nothing, Boston can have Ward if tht-y
will pay for him."
A STRANGE TALE.
New York, April 23.—Sixty odd
east bound passengers of tho ill-fated
steamer Denmark reached New York
from Philadelphia this morning and
were taken care of by the agents of the
Thingvalla S. S. Oo. All are of the
better olass uf immigrants. Thoy are
without exception, well dressed and of
cleanly appearance. Olof Wieseland
and wife, who are bound for Worcester, Mass., was one of the few English speaking people in the party. He
is n llorist ana has boen in America
before. In conversation with a united
press reporter ho made a statement
whioh has not appeared in print in
connection with the casualty. He
was told his remarks wero important
aud detrimental to the S. S. Oo., but
ho adhered to the statement. He said
that before tho accident occurred, the
dato he could not recall, but thought
it was on tho lat or 2nd of April, uno
of the Norwegian immigrants told him
ho had overheard n conversation in
Ihe oflicer-)' quarters, Ouo of tho
ship's officers (.aid to tho others in the
apartment that ho thought tho vessel
wuuld nover reach New York.
Her machinery wns in bad order
and had not received the euro it should
havo beforo tho steamer sailod. Hor
pumps woro broken, ami in case of accident would be found usoloss in throwing out tho sen. "I'm afraid, tho
Denmark," the officer is reported to
havo said, "will mcot tho fatu of tho
Geisor." Tho Ooisor was a vessel of
the same lino, sunk off Nova Scotia by
a oolIiBion with the Thingvalla about a
yoar ngo. Wiegoland further Baid that
the vessel's coal boxes were on firo on
two occasions before her machinery
gave way. Tho first firo occurred
about ten o'olock on tho night
of the 29th of March ; the
second about half past threo on the
afternoon of tho following day. The
passengers heard of both tiros, and
showed moro uneasiness ovor this comparatively slight accident than when
tho vessel became totally disabled. He
was loud in his pratso of tho conduet
of Capt. Murrol and the officers and
crow of the Missouri. Throughout
tho terrible experience, Wiegeland said
the commander of the rescuing steamer acted with Spartan heroism. "He
nogleoted lui own comfort to provido
for us unfortunate peoplo."

A Big Feed.
A groat Indian feast hss just been

not an old-fashioned poilach at which

was simply a big bunquot—a good imitation of tho modern political "bun
food"—excepting that tho Indians had
no wine or whiskey "in theirs.'1 Everything was done ou a big seal*.*. Fifteen
bneves, wo aro told, wero slaughtered

London, April 23.—Tho Queen will
arrive at Sandringhsm on Tuesday
evening and stay there till Saturday

should render an earlier return to
Windsor necessary. I hear her majesty will visit Houghton Hall and
Castle Rising - during her. sojourn at

tho L inl-Lieut. of Norfolk and Lady

West Newton, Sandringhim and Wolf-
erton will sing the national anthem as
the royal party leaves tho station.
Yard members of the West Norfolk
hunt will form an escort from the
Btation to the Norwich gates of the
prince's residence. The road, whioh.
passes through nearly two miles of the
prettiest part of tbe Sandringham
demesne, has been tastefully decorated with triumphal arches and with
standards bearing the royal arms and
expressions of welcome. The royal
train, whioh the Great Western Co. provides for the Queen's journey from
Windsor, made a trial trip over the

Austria, bitterly resents the style of
impertinence of bis relatives at Darmstadt, and has openly declared he
would have the Queen and the Empress Frederick to know he is perfectly independent of them. If they aro

One oan hardly read thn despatches about the grand rush atOkla-
horua, precisely at noon yesterday,
and allow his imagination to depict
the scene, without being forcibly
struck with the ludicrous side of the
picture. The "boomers," by their
importunities, have fairly forced
this territory iuto the market and
out of the hands of the rightful
owners—the Indians' of tho United
States. The president, yielding to
the resistless and determined pressure of interested parties, was induced to proclaim the territory open
for settlement. April 22nd, at noon,
was the day and hour when the bars
were let down. Aud, presto! on
the stroke of the clock, with a one,
two, three, go I a motley mob, numbering thousands, who have be-
lcagured the "promised land" for
weeks and been daily augmented,
tear frantically through the brush,
in vehicles, on horseback, and foot
—some with all their household
goods, and evua their houses with
them—all bent on securing for No.
1 the "softest snaps" to be found in
tho Oklahoma pastures. Thousands
crossed the line, with a whoop and
a yell, the first minute, and the
living stream still continues, and is
expected to flow until the land is
filled up, and the inevitable reaotion
takes place. Casualties are a part
of the programme, of course, two of
the "boomers," with their teams,
having been drowned in the first
rush yesterday, endeavoring to ford
a river that intervened. Conflicting
interests and unavoidable personal
collisions of excited "boomers" and
land-seekers are likely to produce
something more serious than mere
accidents beforo a normal state of
things supervenes in feverish Oklahoma, The military, however, are
present in strong force, and, it is to
be hoped, will succeed in nt least
restraining bloodshed.
The report of thn department of
fisheries for the Dominion of Canada  is  to  hand.   A brief review
will be of interest.   Tho total value
of the fisheries of Canada for the
yeai 1888 is given as §17,418,510.-
76, divided among the various provinces  as follows:    Nova   Scotia,
$7,817,030.42;    New   Brunswick,
$2,951,863.05;   British   Oolumbia,
§1,902,195.50; Quebec, §1,860,012.-
96; Ontario, §1,839,869.09; Prince
Edward Island, §876,862.74; Manitoba and N. W. Territories, §180,-
677.   It will be seen that British
Columbia looms up well as compared
with hor sister provinces in fish production.   Tho Pacifio province will
yet stand higher when its fisheries,
particularly the deep sea fisheries,
shall have  been   fully developed.
Tbe aggregate value of the fisheries
of the Dominion for 1888 shows a
decrease, whon compared with the
previous yoar, 1887, of §967,592.99,
divided  as follows:   Nova Scotia,
§562,752.26;  Now Brunswick,
§617,643.84; Prince Edward Island,
§160,563.10;    British    Columbia,
§72,091.58.   The  other  provinces
show an increaso as follows: Quebec,
§86,445.53;  Ontario, §308,819.36;
Manitoba, §51,593.   British Colum
bia's yield as given above, is exclusive of the consumption by Indians,
■ which, placed at §3,257,500, raises
this province to second place, with a
grand total, representing the value
of its fisheries for last year, of §5,-
159,695.50.   The decrease  in the
value of  tlie   fish product of  this
province for last year is attributed,
correctly, no doubt, principally to
the failure of salmon fishing on the
Fraser last season.    Notwithstanding this large falling off', it is added,
the average  pack por cannery was
nearly the same as that of previous
years, while the total capital invested in the business showed   an increase as compared with 1887.   It
will  not bo amiss to mention hero
that still   more capital is being invested this year, and that four now
canneries—making a total number
of sixteen—will operate on the Fra-
ser during the season about to open,
which is expected to be a profitable
one.   The report states that, having
in view the fate which has befallen
the  Once   productive  Sacramento
And Columbia Rivers, and in order
to guard  against similar results in
OUr own streams, it was found necessary to enact more stringent regulations for the  protection of this
valuable industry, and, after quoting
the order-iu council passed November 26th, 1888 (modified  since  in
some  of  its provisions), expresses
the hopo that a strict enforcement
of  thil regulations will put a check
to   the  dSeline experienced during
the past two seasons: and ensure suc-

lent let. itself down very
v.___..^rT'OBi, the performance of
an obvious doty in connection with
-nplonttol with reepeet to the
northwest  coast  fisheries in this
way: "Circumstances again prevented this department from continuing
the experiments begun in 1886, with
tho view of locating tho cod banks
in the neighborhood of Vancouver
and Queen Charlotte Island; but it
is satisfying to know that the attempts  made by private parties in
this direction were fairly successful
and will eventually lead to preparations on a larger and more extensivo
scale for the pursuit of this, fishery
next   season."    Nevertheless,   tho
"department" can  and   should  do
something even yet to expedite and
assist in tho laudable and reproductive enterprise of  opening  up and
developing tho coast fisheries of this
province.   The  report  states that
there  at  present eleven hatcheries
under control of tho Dominion government-, of   which four are located
in   Quebec,   two  each in Ontario,
New Brunswick and Nova Scotia,
and ono in British Oolumbia—the
Fraser  River hatchery.   The total
number of  young  fish of   various
kinds hatched and distributed from
those hatcheries during the season of
1888,   from    thb   crop  of  .1887,
amounted   to   88,109,000, und the
total amount of ova laid down during the yoar was 98,214,000.   The
total   expenditure for the fisheries
service   during  the financial year,
ending 30th June, 1888, amounted
to §377,487.59, inoluding fisheries
protection  service  expenditure to
31st December, 1888.   Under the
head of general service the total expenditure for the Dominion amounted to §95,544.65, sub-divided among
the different provinces as follows:
Ontario, §19,860.52; Quebec, §13,
463.37;   Nova Scotia, §18,308.02;
New Brunswiok, §20,533.20; Prince
Edward Island, §3,402.51; British
Oolumbia,    §3,661.83;    Manitoba,
§2,816.64.   It will be seen from the
above figures that the service in this
province, in proportion to tlio value
of the fisheries, costs the department
muoh   less  than   in   any  of  the
other   provinces.     The  totals  of
expenditure,   as  given  above  aro
made up of  three items., viz., salaries of officers, disbursements of officers, and miscellaneous.  For British
Columbia    the  amounts   opposite
these items are,   respectively,  82,-
415.55,  §1,107.65, $138.63.    The
Fraser River hatchery cost the department   last    year,    §5,653.90,
divided as follows :   Salaries,  §2,-
100; miscellaneous expenditure, §3,-
553.90.   The  following  statement
of  fisheries  revenue   paid   to the
credit  of   the  receiver-general  of
Canada  for  the fiscal year ended
30th Juno, 1888, shows the proportion in   which   each province contributed : Ontario, rents, license foes
and fines, §18,251.25; Quebec.rents,
license  fees and fines, §5,394.99;
Nova   Scotia, fishery licenses and
fines, §3,905.44;  New Brunswick,
fishery licences and fines, §7,625,64;
British Oolumbia, rents, license fees
and    fines,   §6,934.55;   Manitoba,
fishery licenses, $819.25; total, $12,-
931.12.   A recapitulation, showing,
among  other things, the value of
fishing material, etc., and the number  of  fishermen   in the different
provinces of the Dominion, for the
year 1888, speaks well,  comparatively, for this province : Nova Scotia,   No.   fishermen,  28,107, total

gonslblo Comments on a Topic of Cosmopolitan Interest.
Thero is plonty of work, sayi* tho London
Truth, for the daughters of tho middle
classes to do, if parents will only teach them
how to preparo for tho many employments
which aro open to them, and if tho girls
themselves, when employment is at thoir
command, will only frankly accept it and
work bravely at it, instead of maundering
pestilent rubbish about occupations that aro
not •'genteel." For Instance, is it not a
National shamo and disgrace that good cooks
should bo so scarce, and that woll-to-do people should have bitterly to complain that
their lives aro mado a burden to thom by
that "something" which is perpetually
going wrong in tho kitchen—so wrong, indeed, that when special guests aro entertained, the dinner has to ho sent in from tho
pastry-cook's? Why do not middlo-olnss
mothers, whoso husbands only earn a mod-
orate incoiuo, teach their girls to cook, and
cook thoroughly, beginning tho course of
culinary tuition, say, at ten years of ago i
It is at that ago that a French marmiton
begins his education iu tlio kitchen, and at
twenty he is fit to be a second or third cook.
In this country thero Ib un absurdly mischievous notion that a gtrl can be made a
competent cook by a desultory course of
training oxtending ovor somo six months. In
reality Bho will require from sbe to eight
years before sho can cook efficiently. I am
not such a visionary as to imagine that tho
middle class mother can always afford to apprentice hor daughter to a Urst-ruto chef, or
to pay a heavy premium for her to outer as
au "improver'- in tho kitchen of a olub;
but Bhe can have tho foundation of tho girl's
training laid by sending hor for a short
time to a lirst-rato school of cookery, and
continuing the training day by day, weok
bv week, and month by month at home.
Nor would it bo difficult for her to make the
acquaintance of ono of thoso professed
female cooks who go out" on job,'- and who
for a very small sum would give the girl
somo useful hints about making sauces,
garnishing and dishing up; And finally, the
girl herself should be taught to lovo tho
art of cookery, and on hor shelf one
of hov moat prized volumes should be
a thoroughly good cookery book. It must
be remembered that boiling a potato woll is
neither tho beginning nor tho ond of good
cookery; the science is essentially an experimental one, and consequently, any ono
practicing it should be continually incited to
make culinary experiments in tho way of
concocting savory raudo-dishca or pretty
little tiny kickshaws. It may ha objected
that theso experiments would cost a groat
deal of money. As a matter of fact, they
would cost very littlo. Tho simpler kinds
of vegetables aro cheap onough; a made
dish can bo as well prepared from block ornaments as from tho superior categories of
meat; and flour, spices, butter and augur
would, as on outlay, be certainly not ruinous to tho family, when it iB considered that they would partako of
tho dishes prepared, and that those
dishos would grow nicer and nicer evory
duy as tho youthful cook progressed in her
art. A professed female cook is worth
' from £60 to £70 a year wages; and a young
lady would not in the slightest dogroo
derognto from her social position by accepting such a post, seeing that the cook Is
emphatically Quoon of tho Basement, and
that not only hor fellow-sorvants, but hor
employers, if they are sonsiblo folk, must
defor to hor, for sho literally rules tho
i roost-and appeals to all our feelings through
th- potent medium of tho stomach.
. Again, I fail to see why girls of tho
. middlo classes should not ho trained, and
uu-pfully trained, to go out as ladies'
maids, to fill which responsible, and comfortable and ovon elegant, posts thoy would
tako no harm if, In addition to being com-
potent dress-makers and efficient halr-dress-
ors, thoy did not forget thoir French, and
ospecially if thoy cultivated their calligraphy
and tholr orthography. A cultured femme
\ ita chambre soon becomes moro than half
}■ tho private secretary of tho tjrande dame
whoso service she enters, and is valued accordingly. I will not say any thing at
present about tho desirability of training
middle-class girls to be artists. In the first
"place, because South Kensington girls and
| Blade School girls havo an unhappy
tendency when thoy havo hod a littlo superficial training in art or waste thoir
'■ timo in painting ambitious pictures iu
' oils for exhibition at tho Royal Academy, which pictures, as a rule, arc uot displayed on the walls of Burlington Houso;
aud, noxt, it must bo remembered that tho
lovo of art is a gift, and uot an acquirement, and tbat tho mcdlocro artist is ns
helpless a creature as tho mediocre musician. But I repeat thero aro a vory largo
I number of sultablo and remunerative employments open to young women, if only
thoy are sedulously trained up to thom.
They can, for Instance, enter lifo as clorks,
book-keepers, shpp assistants, typo-writers,
short-hand correspondents, nursos, hotel
kcor -rn, (advertising canvassers and com
moreiol travolora—tho last a calling which
is Isi ii'iMUtly assumed to bo monopolized by
men. Thou, a woll*oducatodl well-maniiorod
£irl. quick at her needle, and a clover cutter, need not abandon hor home, but can
.iimlw a comfortable addition to hor meager
allowance of pocket-money, if she will only
condescend to go out a few mornings overy
-week to ladies' housos to overlook and koep
'wardrobes in repair. Tho needlewoman who
does condescend to undortako suoh work is,
as a rulo, either coarse, clumsy, or fractious,
or an uppish young party who does hor
work, it is truo, fairly woll, hut does a vory
littlo of it, and who iB, besides, sadly hurt
if Bhe be not provided with an elaborate
lunch, moistened with claret, and followed
up by tho facilities for taking a slight nap.
AN  EMPTY  COFFIN.
The Corpso Who Danced at the
taker's Ball.
Burials alive aro far moro common in hot
countries, where tho burial takes placo
within twenty-four hours after death, than
thoy aro hero, whero ono gets, as a rule, a
week's grace. In Spain, says tho London
Referee, the body is frequently removed to
tho undertaker's shop a fow hours after
death. In ono of the largest of these
establishments in Madrid, somo years ago,
nn extraordinary sight was witnessed. A
gcntlonian was brought'in hfe "caskot"
one aftornoon, and placed in a room set
apart for;thnt branch of tho business. Tho
proprietor lived over his premises, and on
this'especial ovening was giving a grand
ball. Whon tho ball was at its bright a
gentleman in full evening dress suddenly
joined tho company. Ho danced wtth tho
wifo of tho undertaker, and he danced with
tho undertaker's daughter, and scorned to
ho thoroughly enjoying hlrasolf. The undertaker thought ho know his face, but didn't
liko to bo rude and nsk him his namo; but
by and by all tho guests departed, and the
strange gentleman was tbo only one left.
"Shall I sond for a cab for you?" said tho
host at last. "No, thank you," replied tho
gentleman; "I am staying inthe house."
"Staying in the house?" exclaimed the undertaker} "who are you, airi" "What,
don't you know me? I'm the corpso that
was brought in tho afternoon."
The undertaker, horrified; rushed to tho
mortuary room and' found tho coffin empty.
HiB wife and daughter had been dancing
with a corpse, An explanation, of course,
followed, Tho gentleman, who had only
beon In a tranco, had suddenly iccovc-cd,
and, hearing music and revelry abovo, nnd
having a keon sonso of humor, had got out
of his coffin (tho Spanish coffin closes with
a lid, whioh is only locked just previous to.
interment) and joined tho festive party. He
was quite presentable, as in Spain tho dead
'aro generally burled in full evening dress.

The lacrosse players havo decided to

to organize a club and to arrange practices. In the city there are a dozen
old players who can still handle a stick

with a number of new players, who aro
suro to como to the front, should bo a
sufficiently good basis from which to
form a club second to none in tho provinco. The season ia advancing and
other clubs havo been settled down to
practice for somo weeks, so no time
should be lost.

At a meeting of the counoil lust night
tho rate of taxation was fixed for tho
present year. It is to be one per cont
with a reduction of 25 per cent for
prompt payment, thus making tho
rate threo quarters of one per cent,
not. Last year the rate struck was
ono and one third per cent, so that the
rate decided on last night is a great
reduction. Tho largo increase in tho
assessment roll this yoar makes the
roductiou possible; and fow will bo inclined to growl at tbe rate. Many
taxpayers have been anxious to know
what tho rate would be fixed at  this
{'ear, but few expected it would be any
ower than lost year.
Tlie Big Bun.
The oolachan run reached its top
notch last night, and tho water of tho

From tho wharves, tho Hehool of oola*

up stream, bound for tho spawning
grounds. Tho Indiana woro alive io
the fact that the "big run" wss on,
and they wero promptly at work raking
in a Bupply for next winter's foud.
Vianon's net brought in far more each
haul than tho fishermen cared to
handle, and the work of emptying the
net was no small undertaking. As
tho supply of oobchans is now far iu
excess of tho demand, tho surplus
stock is being salted fur tho fall aud
winter trudo.

The City Park.
The park committee reported to tho
council last night that active operations
on tho park had beon suspended for
the time being, and would not bo resumed till a considerable amount of
burning had heen dono. The committee appointed to canvas among the
citizen* for subscriptions, towards paying for tho park improvements, will
commence their collection tour this
week; and it is to be hoped the citizens will respond liberally so that our
fine park may be of use to tho general
public this season. Mr. T. J. Trapp
succeeds Mr. James Cunningham on
lhe committee, the latter having withdrawn. The remainder of tho wor't
to bo done on the park will be lot by
contract, as it is expected that it will
be more cheaply done in this way than
by day labor. The amount of work
done on the park up to date, has beon
most satisfactory, but efforts should
not be relaxed until tho whole job is
finished and the park thrown open to
the publio.
A Yanconrcrg-'u-ti-ilon.
A Bunaation is occupying the attention of Vaucouvente* at present, which
promises somo interesting develop*
meiits before the matter is finally dis*
posed of, A man named James Hogg
accuse* Arthur Sullivan of criminal
intimacy with his wife, whoso infidelity he ha* had reason to suspect for a
long time. On tho 0th of this month
Hogg followed tho couple to Sullivan's
Hall, which they entered, and, Hogg
claims, locked tho door. Ho remained
outside for half an hour when thoy
camo out together and were immediately accused of criminal intercourse,
whioh hoth denied. They also declared the door had not been locked.
Thu result of this meeting was that
Mrs. Hogg was ejected from hor home
and sho took refugu in tho houso of
the Rev. Mr. Robson, the Methodist
minister. For some days Mrs. Hogg
held that she was innocent of any
criminal doing*, but finally contested
her guilt and declared an arbortiun
hud been procured by a well-known
physician, as she and Sullivan (who is
a colored man) woro afraid that the
offspring would betray them. The re*
suit of this confession is that charges
have been laid against both Sullivan
and the physician, charging them
with malpractice, which both indignantly deny. Beforo making a confession Mrs, Hogg wrote to Sullivan
and offered to compromise the matter
for $2,000, whioh settlement he refused, and claims thii was an attempt
at blackmail. The whole matter will
be ventilated at the police oourt.

From A. M. Hurring, asking permission to build a water tank on Royal
avenue and to lay water pipes on Mury
street. Permission granted under tho
superviainn of tho board of works.
F /om tlio property holders of Edinburg street, asking that that -itreet he
opened and sidewalks laid, under the
provisions of section 191 of the New
Westminster act 1889.   Received.
Tho board of works was granted
further time to report on Mrs. Hennessey's case.
The board of works reported thut
the prayor of tho property owners of
FortcBque Btreet, that tho same bo
opened under the street improvements
by-law, bo granted.
That Front street from the woolen
mills to Sapperton has been put in
gond repair.
That Messrs. G. W. Gilley & Co.
hud driven tho piles at thu foot of
Columbia street, and that tho samo
were being capped.
When the question of passing that
clituso of the board of works report
referring to the opening of Fortesqne
street wns beforo the counoil,
Aid. Curtis remarked tfiftt W£M»
McPhaden and Tuwnstiid had said
we could not "mako fish of one and
flesh of another." This was just what
was going to kill the Btreet by-laws, if
every little $20 job had to be done by
thu issuance uf street debontures.
Aid. Cunningham said this was just
what ho expected when the opening
of Fortosquo street was mooted. Peo-
plo who hnd been paying tux&U for ,25
years wore not going to pay txtrn-'foV
the improving of streets on which
thoy held • -"perty. He would rather
favor a h law to raiso a sufficient, aum
to do tlio ii-i;0ssary street work. This
he conbidurcd the fairest way.
Aid, Townsond said that if the peoplo of ono street paid for street improvements the same courso would
havo to be followed in others. Tho
general revenue could not be spent in
opening a fow streets, nil will have to
pay alike.
Aid. Reid thought the by-Jaw a good
thing, and ho could not see that any
injustice wonld be done to anyone. If
the poople demanded streets and wero
willing to pay for the work, tbey
are entitled to them.
Aid. Scoullar said it was neceuary
to look at this matter in a broad light,
aud to consider the merits of the matter thoroughly. If the people wanted
the Btreets the council was bound to
make tho improvements under tho
