An oxcliangesaj's : Mr. Moody's
seminary for girls at Northfield,
Massachusetts, lias taken the initiative in an educational movement,
which, if it should become general,
must react in giving new dignity to
the home. One of tho rooms in
Marquand Hall has been set apart
as a domestic science laboratory
under tho charge of Miss Emily
Huntington, of Now York, who
first introduced the kitchen garden
system into this country.
A professor of natural history,
sayi the Washington Grilic, wandered away from the Smithsonian
the other day and got into a lawyer's oftico on ¥ street, where there
is;* very prompous young clerk.
The professor asked two or threo
questions on the point at issue, and
the clerk finally remarked to him
very' largely : "I toll you it's true,
and it is true. What do you know
about law, anyway 1" "Nothing,
nothing ut ull," replied the professor, meekly, "but I know a great
deal about natural history, and I
think you are an ass."

A white young man while attending service in a Waterbury (Conn.)
colored church was guilty of the impropriety of expectorating on the
floor. His offence was soon noticed
by a deacon, who approached and
said in the most solemn tone:—
"Young man, yon must not' spit
tobacco juice here." A few min
utes after tho contribution box was
passed by that official, and theexpec-
torator paralysed it by dropping in a
quarter. The deacon looked at the
quarter and at the contributor a
moment. Then, putting his hand
to his mouth, ho wispered to the
contributor in a stage aside:—"Spit
in the corner!"   .
Punch predicts that it will como
to this: Cablegram from minister
to premier: Very awkward this
("Itriotly private") telegram of minister. Well-intentioned, but ill-
timed. Please do something. Cablegram from minister to premier (an
hour later): Have sent miniiter
hispassports. Cablegram from president to premier (an hour later):
Have ordered minister to bo off at
once, .'.blogram from president
to premier (an hour later): Sending
out declaration of war by next mail.
Cablegram from president to premier
(an hour later): At oabinet council
just held decreed the immediate
annexation of Canada and Australia,
and the speedy invasion of India.
Cablegram from president to premier
(a week later): Election over.
Pulled it through. Countermanded
annexation and invasion. Sorry
minister has gone. Give him my
kind regards. Calculate you may
consider this incident at an end.
Says an eastern Canadian exchange : It cannot bnt bo mortifying to the national pride of our
American cousins to find that citizens of the United Statei have so
often when abroad to depend upon
the courtesy of British consuls for
protection. The most recent instance was at Port-au-Prince, where
the captain and passengers of an
American steamer seized by a Haytian man-of-war had to beg the protection of the British consul, the
U. S. official there having to confess
he was powerless *to render any
assistanco. The fact that British
consuls in foreign ports have always
heen ready to givo their good offices
on behalf of distressed Americans
ought to promote a very friondly
feeling towards Oreat Britain on the
part of Americans at home, but, as
it often happens that the conferring
of a benefit is considered by tho
person benefited as a ground of
grievanco against the benefactor, a
similar anomaly may ooour in tho
case of nations.
The Persian publio decided the
other day that the railroad is nn
enemy of tho human nice, because
a man who jumped off a train while
in motion fell nnder the wheels uud
was killed. They accordingly tore
tho cars in piocos and would have
wiped out tho train employes if the
latter had not taken to their heels.
It is usual for people during their
early acquaintance with the locomotive to regard the snorting monster ns a very suspioious character,
and Congo native! have not yet got
over tho impression that it is a lusty
devil hidden away in the iteamboat
boiler who makes the wheels go
round. Wo cannot afford to laugh
very much at these ignorant brethren
for our own great-grand-fathere
declared that it wai utter nonsense
to suppose that steam can could
carry passengers faster than ten
miles an hour without smashing
everybody up, and, besides, all the
horses would be soared into fits and
permanently ruined. The Persian
public will doubtless grow to liko the
the groat Western idea in spite of
its noise and dangers.
Paiimklkii's Pills possess the power

New York, Doc. 5. -A letter from
Seo'y Bayard to the owners of the Bteamer Haytien Republic, which is held by
the Haytieus as a prize, having been condemned for running tho blockade, has

American man-of-war will bo sent to
Port au Prince to demand the steamer's

of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, says, "If

VIRGINIA RECREATION.
Lynchburg, Va,, Nov. 29,—A
special to the Advance from Wythe-
ville, Va., says: A band of armed
men wearing masks broke open the
jail here at 2 a. m., nnd rescued Way-
man Sutton, under sentence of death
for the murder of Peter Howell. He
was to have been executed to-inorrow.
Howell was murdered in March, 1887,
and the evidence of all, which was
circumstantial, pointed to Way man
Sutton and his father-in-law, Morgan
Pendleton, as the perpetrators of tho
deed. Pendleton is said to bo in Kentucky, and a letter purporting to havo
been written by him, in which he declared he, and not Sutton, was a murderer, was recently committed to
Governor Lee. Sutton was arrested
in Indiana last June, and brought
back to Wythcvillo, where the trial
took place. He was convicted, and all
appeals failed.
AN ANARCHIST THANKSGIVING.
Chicago, Nov. 29,—A meeting of
250 people at Thalia hall this afternoon was as close an imitation as
possible of anarchist gatherings on the
Thanksgiving preceding the Haymarket
outbreaks. The speakers were guarded
in their utterances, but tho spirit of
the assemblage waB shown by tho distribution to those present of a number
of copies of hand bilis of Here Moat's,
which caused the disruption of the
international in 1883, driving out those
who did not believe in dynamite The
principal speaker was Albeit Curlin.
He said the present system of society
was not worth giving thanks for, but
wns worth cursing to the lowest depths
of hell. Whom should thoy thank ?
God. If there was a God, what a
monster he must be to permit so much
miseiy. Let the fools be thankful for
their wretchedness, Workingmen
should stand together until thoir ideals
of socialism and anarchism wero fully
realised.
COLOR DTSTIRDANCES.
Savannah, Ga„ Nov. 29.—An attempt by the polico to quell a disturbance amomr a crowd of disorderly
nogroos in the western part of the

up, nnd finding his club useless drew
his revolver and began firing. Othor
officers heard the shooting and hastened to the place. Patrolman Cromm
was knocked dotvn and his skull
broken. McMurray was driven three
or four blocks down the street uud
escaped into a house, but the crowd
broke through the windows and threw
him into the street where negro women
beat him with bricks until insensible.
The police were notified at headquarters, and a squad of mounted
officers soon arrived. By this time
1000 negroes were in tho street yelling
and crying "Kill them!" "Kill them!'
The police held the crowd baok, and
eight of tho ringleaders were arrested.
The crowd was finally dispersed. Tonight a negro with wounds in his body
was found dead in the part of tho city
whero the shooting occurred.

In a news item in another column
we mako an announcement that
must lio peculiarly gratifying to
thoso of our citizens who aro awaro
of the importance of the matter and
the strenuous and peraovering efforts
mode to securo what wo are now
glad to he able to say is assured. Wo
refer to the uew navigation chart
showing tho channel at the mouth
of the rivor, which tho secretary of
tho board of trade here has been informed by tho authorities at Ottawa
is in course of construction and will
soon he published for the information and convenience of shippers iho
world ovor. Tun Columbian has
called attention to this matter so
often in tho past that it will not be
necessary to dwell upon the importance to our shipping interests, and
to this city as a seaport, of the staph justice which has at last been
obtained in tho niatter of tho long
striven for and much needed chart.
Our board of trade are to bo congratulated upon this additional evidence of their devotedness and influence in furthering the city's interests, and our citizens generally
may felicitate themselves upon the
standing that Westminstor must
soon take as a seaport, now that
justice is being done her maritime
interests.
Mr. Fowderly's enemies among
the Knights of Labor, although they
made a strenuous effort at Indianapolis—just as they did at Minneapolis a year ago—to destroy the
confidence placed in him by tho
majority of the members of the order, signally failed to do so, and he
was recently re-elected genoral mas-
tor workman for another term of
two years by a largo majority.
Moreover, the assembly curtailed his
duties, increased his authority, and
maintained his solaiy at $5,000, although after the ballot had been
taken he stated that he would accept only 83,000. Mr. Hayes, the
nomineo of Mr. Powderly himself
for secretary-treasurer, was elected
after a spirited fight, und all tho
other officers chosen are friendly to
tho administration. Mr. Powderly
has proved himself to be worthy of
the renewed confidence of the large
and influential labor organization
over which ho has again been chosen
to preside. Thero are very few men
who would not havo grievously
abused the extensive one-man power
placed in his hands. So far as tho
public know, however, Mr. Powderly is one of the few men who can
be trusted not to make a bad uso of
practically unlimited authority. He
appears to be a man of right views
and lofty principles upon all questions touching the welfare of the
vvorkingman, and his earnest and
consistent advocacy of temperance
measures for the individual, the society, and the state, has been the
causo of no small opposition to him
in the order to which he is devoted,
and which he has so faithfully served.
We believe that the Knights have
acted wisely in placing Mr. Powderly at the head of their order for another term.
"At the quarterly meeting of the
Vancouver board of trade last evening," says the News, "a communication was read from the New Westminster hoard of trade  calling  attention to the anomalous position in
which the designation of tho  hoard
of trade at Victoria places  both itself und the other boards of trade in
the province."   We quite agree with
tho board of trado of thil  oity  in
thoir recommendations in the matter,
and also with tho argument ol  our
cotemporary of the News, that   tho
Viotoria board of trade should  lay
aside the "British Oolumbia" affixed
to thoir institution, and   substitute
therefor "Viotoria."   Wo  also  believe, with tho Mews, that our island
friends will readily  accede  to  tho
reasonableness of the request, when
it is properly placed beforo them. It
would certainly look very  liko  affectation if they did  not; for  the
present title is not only a misnomer,
but cannot help leading  to untold
confusion.   It is truo our  Victoria
friends had the field when they organized their board of  trade,   ond
might be excused  for  ambitiously
imagining at the time that Viotoria
was British Columbia,  and   would
ever continue to be; but they  must
ere this have seen the fallacy of such
an idea, and havo reached tho sensible conclusion that Victoria's chances
for being a large city and a place of
importance are not less,  but  more,
since the has ceased to  be  British
Oolumbia, and has flourishing rivals
in other parti of the province.   Wo
believe that the Victoria board  of
trade  will see the force of the recommendations from iti lister institutions in this city and  in Vancouver, and gracefully drop an  appellation which is too big for  it—altogether inappropriate—and which can
never he applied or understood   except by iti ownmemben.

Among other increased mail facilities required in tho province, wo
havo from time to time called attention to tho nocessity that exists
for at least two mails a week, instead of one, as at prosent, between
this city nnd tho settlements south
of the rivor, embraced principally in
Surrey municipality and partly in
Delta. The postoffices in the districts referred to that should bo
served twice a week, instead of.
once, are six in number, and, although wo have mentioned them
more than once, it will not be amiss
to do so again. Thoy nre, Mud Bay,
Elgin, Surrey Centre, Hall's Prairio,
Olover Valley, nnd Langley Preirie.
These mails nre all carried by way
of the Scott road, by two different
carriors, by stage and sometimes on
horseback; and, as stages run almost
daily a good part of tho way, it
would take a very small additional
subsidy to increase the service to a
bi-wcokly one. The boon that this
would be to the settlers in tbat
vicinity, and even to the people in
this city nnd elsewhere who have
communications with them, would
bo considerably out of proportion to
tho trifling cost of the better facilities asked. Somo idea of tho inconvenience experienced from the pros
ent inadequate weekly service may
bo gained from the communication
in another column, signed " Surrey-
Centre," which gives an instance of
over three weeks elapsing before the
writer of a letter in Victoria received an nnswer from Surrey. This
is but one instance of what is constantly happening, and must continue to occur as long as the present
service is maintained. With regard
to the provincial papers, the inconvenience is felt, perhaps, as keenly
as in correspondence, from tho fact
tbat the current news only reaches
the settlers in the neighborhoods referred to once n week, and consequently the news is often stale as
well. Considering tho proximity of
these settlements (all within a radius of twenty miles of this city) to
the distributing point, it does seem
hard, not to say absurd, that they
should bo thus limited in their
means of communication as if they
were hundreds of miles in the wilderness. Many other settlements
much farther from this city, by reason of fortunate circumstances, have
infinitely superior mail facilities.
We hopo to see at least a bi-weekly
service established between this city
and the settlements referred to before long. Thero are ono or two
other matters of a similar nature, to
which wo shall refer again.

DEAR Sirs :—I bought one of your Maxwell Binders last
July, and it has given me the best of satisfaction in every respect.
My grain and straw was very heavy, and a good deal of it was
badly lodged, and I thought it could not be cut by machine, but
thanks to the Maxwell machine, it picked it up and cut it like a
charm. I have visited many of the surrounding farms but have
yet failed to sec any grain cut so clean as mine. I feel proud of
the machine and would strongly recommend the Maxwell above
all others. Yours faithfully,
JwnoKo James Faulkner.

THE NEW YORK DAILIES.
' REVIEW OF THE SITUATION  BY A
VETERAN JOURNALIST.
Tlio Old and the Hew Contrasted-*! Carl*
oue Trans formation Scone—The World,
the Herald and the Sun-Causes and
Kffocta — Tho Ttfo-ccut Movomejit *--•
Trash and the Writers of Tra§b,
{Copyright 1888.)
Had the prediction been hazarded but a
few years ago that a great revolution waa
then iuipendlog among the daily newspapers of New York, by which their relative standing and commercial value
might be seriously changed, the assertion
would have been greeted with acorn and
derision, Yet this transformation has
really taken place, and we now find tho
lending metropolitan journals occupying
strum-ely altered * positions, Then the
Herald stood heads and shoulders above
all ot its contemporaries in money-earning capacity, possessing, aa it did, an advertising patronago nearly equal to that
of nil its-competitors and having aclrcnla-
tlon only rivaled by one of them; to-day
it apparently holda only the seoond place
In respect to its advertising aud circulation. Then the Sun boldly placed the
figures representing its circulation at the
head of its editorial page and scattered
everywhere the striking legend, "A Million a Week," while the revenue of the
paper was suoh that the quarterly dividends actually equaled 00 per cent, on its
invested* capital. To-day the circulation
of tho Sun Is an unknown quantity, and
the dividends have undoubtedly suffered
a heavy reduction.
Then tho Times was the recognized and
, influential organ of the Bepublican party
throughout the Union, a position It had
ii-mimed in 1873, when Homes Greeley In-
sanely accepted the Democratic nomination for President; to-day tbe Times Ib,
In -short, Democratic in Its politics. The
THhunc, i, few years ago, seemed to be
wipiiiiy drifting Into bankruptcy while
clutching wildly at the skirts ot the party
its founder had deserted; to-day It li
prosperous and has again become the
, lending Republican newspaper. The
World was wallowing in tha Slough of
Despond—hnd an insignificant circulation
nml a miserable showln--. ot advertising,
with no sottled policy, though claiming
to be the representative Democratic
journal of Amerlea; to-day tho World has
a circulation that Is undoubtedly largo
nnd an advertising patronage that Is tho
wonder ot every journalist and nowspapor
proprietor.
That these are remarkable changes
every one will admit, and the causes that
led to them afford an interesting and instructive study.
When Horace Greeley, Henry J. Raymond and the elder James Gordon Bennett
were allvo they conducted their papers on
three different plnnes. Mr. Greeley apparently thought that a strong editorial
page, plenty of practical reading for farmers, and n fair sprinkling of news were
tlio features to make a paper successful.
Ou the other hand, Mr, Bennett wanted
news from the four corners of the world,
nud lie was always willing to go to any
expense and trouble to get it, while the
editorial page was a secondary matter so
long ns the articles were short and pithy,
Mr, Itnymond steered In a middle course,
made his paper strong in its editorials
nml criticisms, while he saw that tbe
news columns woro always fresh and
vigorous.
Though these three distinguished journalists thus proceeded on three different
lines, they made all of their papers successful because they were consistent.
The Tribune, iu tho days when it was a
power politically, and popular among the
agriculturists, made a great deal of
money, its weekly circulation being estimated nt oue timo at 100,000. It used to
boa common snylng fu those days that
tho dally edition of the Tribune paid tbe
expenses of the entire establishment;
therefore, the (160,000 .received for the
weekly edition represented Its annual
proflts. The Times had a hard Btrugrcle
for five years, but by a bold push in 1937
nnd a now building, which now has been
replaced hy a far larger and handsomer
one, it began to make money, nnd has
continued to do bo ever since. The Her-
aid, with its enterprise and constant effort to obtain exclusive nod important
news naturally took tbe position of the
great leading paper of the country, and
thero is no good reason why it should not
occupy that position to-day. But the
policy of the paper changed and Its enterprise visibly slackened.
From 19G6 until 1863 the lines of morning journalism wero dearly defined onr}
closely followed.
Charles A. Dana took the old 1-cent
Sun, stamped upon its enlarged columns
his own virile Individuality, and for two
cents gnve to the public a cleverly edited
nnd aggressive paper, the news being well
digested. Success was almost instantaneous, for being cheap and good, an immense circulation was attained.
But the day arrived when the -Sun was
to lose control ot the field, for a one cent
paper, the Journal, was started, all of
the big dailies reduced their price to two
cents nud there was a general scramble,
About this time tbe World passed into
tbo control of a man who had a decided
Knit solid purpose in view, with the neces-
try. nerve nnd ability to carry It out to
a successful end. Fixing the price of his
paper at two cents, Mr. Pulitzer marched
into the camp of his competitors. He
began by filling the columns of the World
with news, nnd it thrived upon Its unao*
customed diet. The editorial page bristled with sharp articles, and there was no
mistaking their force and meaning. The
pencil of the artist was called into requisition to illustrate current topics of the
day, and people began to talk about the
paper. Like all new blood, It flowed Impetuously, and there was a tendency towards sensation that time alone oould
euro,
Mr, Pulitzer made a noise with his
paper, and by constantly Improving it
soon beuan gaining ground in bis olrcnla
tion, until finally It culminated ln a
boom. All this effort and push naturally
out into the circulation ot the other journals, the heaviest sufferer being the Sun,
Mr. Jones, ot the Timet, being a shrewd
business man, saw tho squall coming and
at a blow out the price of his paper ln
ttmlf. The step was a wise on* and taken
at the right moment, for though tbe increased circulation gained at two cents
did not equal the proflts of the four-cent
edition, it so Increased the advertising
pnl.ru: ii ge as to balance the offlce ledgers.
Tbe Herald dropped its price to two cents,
the fitt-p being marked by a herculean
Btrugglo with tho newsdealers, who, be-
1 iiig opposed to a reduction of their profits,
as foreshadowed hy cheap newspapers,
chose to fight tho movement over the
Herald's shoulders, In the midst of this
wnfuslonthe Tribune dropped from four
to three cents, giving ths vendors their
profit of a cent per copy, whioh enabled
thb paper to weather tho storm, and It is
now in an excol'mt financial condition,
basides rc-jalt.3*! its old position of a Republican organ, having entered tho field
when t-o Tinws left tho gate opsn,
1 Tho straggle that has been progressing
■ for the past few yean Is an Instructive
an interesting one. The humdrum methods have been disturbed, and tremendous
efforts ars being made to hold a placo in
the race or overtake the leaders. Awaking from its slumber, the Herald is getting to bt something liko lta old self,
though then Is a look ot dignity unworthy of so gnat a journal. But there
been. Improvement In the paper,
the pulse of its circulation has been
r quickened. With a little more steadiness
in steering, boirww, tb« ship WWH «U

And this brings me to the question of
eensatlonshaa newspapers. There Is no
question that they are tbe life blood of a
daily journal, for like the thrilling and
unexpected situations In a play, they
move and enchain tholr audience. But it
is one thing to discover and secure a sensation ar.d quite another to rmnofactu:-a
one. We hnve seen some chocking examples of the damage inflicted upon
newspaper by ill-directed efforts nml tho
gain made by legitimate enterprise nnd
push. Just now it seems to ho tho fash-
Ion, not only In Kew York, but In other
cities, to deal in froth. Rich and infli*..
entlal papers suddenly discard the solid
Saxon- style which is the charm, of our
language and adopt-the torm of the
French fcutlUUm Without its niry eparkln
and wit, To out an article into small
paragraphs when by so doing tho soi-uo is
destroyed will not help tho reputation or
circulation of any paper. I know this
new style is supposed to be—Heaven save
the markl—fine writing, but it is almost
enough to make tho founders of tho l.'cw
York press tum in their grass grnvn
graves. But the day will como when the
reading publio will grow tired of having
so much water mixed with their m!lk,
and then we shall see itdisappear forever,
to the joy of all educated readers and
good writers.
Thero Is no question that the World
oould not have attained lta present position but for tho mistakes of its rivals.
While somo ot these were rubbing their
eyes and wondering what all tho noise
was about, tho V/orld rolled on, gathering
Impetus overy succeeding day. Had tho
other papers mado a fight at tho start the
struggle would have been more severe
and tho mass of circulation somewhat
different from the present one. But they
simply poohpoohed the. movement and
predicted tbat itwould amouiiiuro-li-
lng. Now they discover that which tliey
deemed a molehill has grown Into a
mountain.
Tho futun of New York dally journal-
Ism is still a problem. Thoso papers now
at the top of the tree may bo uhnhen I y
time, and unless they are conducted wl. U
great vigilance and with on eyo to constant improvement they may, like an un-
pruned fruit tne, becomo barren by overgrowth.
Then an gnat possibilities for the
leading newspapers of New York. The
population of this and tho surrounding
cities is growing at an enormous rate, nr.d
the business interests of the motropc'js
are having a corresponding increase.
This growth ln wealth and population
naturally widens the field of newspaper
usefulness and power, and It belioov
those in charge of tho helm to so conduct
their columns that publio support may be
deserved. No property Is so scnsitlvona
newspaper. Properly handled ltsprc'.ts
an large and Its influence great, while,
on the other hand, mistaken policy or nn
attempt to stem tho tide of public opinion too often brings financial disaster und
Journalists ruin.

The philosopher Locke says that mnd*
men do not appear to have lost tho faculty
ot rensouing, but have joined together
some Ideas very wrsngly, and mistake
them for truths. Tho truth ot this assertion is shown from the following letter
which came to the writer's haudB. The
writer was a patlont confined in one of the
New York State Asylums, Ho* w-u afflicted with a typical case of general
paresis. The patient Is always writing,

f Helping- Mother*
In my opinion then Is nothing degrading for a man or hoy to don n big apron,
and with strong arms assist the tired
and often overworked wifo or mother in
the heavier work of tho household.
My mother's girls " woro all boys,"
and I, the youngest, was often called to
help hor with tho housework. I havo
Uvea to bless hor for tho Instruction
sho gave mo ln that line, ondl know my
wifo Is of tho same mind,
I remember ono day when X was
helping at tho washtub our pastor called
and took occasion to ridicule mo for the
work I was doing.
Ho said " I wouldn't wash."
I was a boy, but my estimation of him tell sovorol degrees at that
time.
I know a man who, when his wife was
slok, and no help could bo had for lovo
or money, took tlio whole can of tho
household as nurso, oook, washerwoman and maid of alt work forsovoral
weeks, unaided except for the dally
visits of tho physician, oaring tor his
Wife as shewent almost tothe gates ot
death, until at last a good nurse was obtained and tho tlrud husband-was permitted to rest,
Bo, boys, dont be ashamed to help
your mother and sisters in the houBo it

took place in one of tho ra..chcries in

during the struggle, received a gash 8
inches in length, ox tending from his
forehead to the back of his head. Ho
succeedod in struggling to the police
court, where Dr. Bell-Irving Boon arrived and stitched the wound. He was
then immediately taken to the City

Magnificent Passenger Steamer.
It is stated in Puget Sound steamboat circlos that Capt. Jos. Carroll proposes to build and equip a magnificent

kan-route, and that Henry Villard is
in the scheme. Tho vessel is to cost
about $600,000. She will be 350 feet
long and 50 feet beam, a twin-screw
propeller with two triple-compound
engines, Her chief distinguishing feature is to be a crystal saloon on tho
hurricane deck, 200 feet in length,
heated by steam, so that the passengers can promenade under cover and
in comfort, and atllt enjoy a magnificent view of the scenery. The steamer
will make about two round trips per
month, and she will be richly equipped
so as to please the most fastidious
taste aud requirements of affluent excursionists.— Colonist.

the northern parts of Ontario, Quobeo

for developing our mines that could
legitimately be given. The government has the whole question of the

under consideration. At the present

A Warm Subject.
About 5 o'clock last evening an Indian named Louis Phillipe and a half-
breed named Fred Walker gob into an
argument concerning the Southern
Railway, Walker contending that the
road was very neccessary to proper
civilization while the Indian declared
that that was just what he and his tilli-
oums did not want. The argument
ran high and some very unpleasant epithets wero exchanged, which finally
lead to both men throwing off their
coats to settle the question by force of
fists. The disputants made no effort to
give a scientific exhibiton of the manly
art, but merely hit out in all directions
and with all their strength, each good
blow being loudly cheered by a circle
of interested friends. The fight wns
waxing furious and Walker was proving himself the better man, when Constable Carty broke through the ring,
arrested the men nnd walked them off
to the look-up, whero they had plenty
of time to reason the matter calmly
till this morning. At the police court
this morning Walker was fined $2.00
and Louis Phillipe $1.00. The combatants havo decided to leave tho settlement of tho Southern Railroad to
to the enlightened inhabitants of Westminister and abide peacefully by tho
result

Inspection of Arms, -te.
The popular commandant of "C
Battery, It. O. A., Lieut-Col, Holmes,
deputy adjutant general military district No. 11, arrived by the str.
Princess Louisa this morning to in
spect the olothing, accoutrements etc.
of No. 1 Battery B.O.B.G.A. and the
NowWestmlnster Rifles. Tho arms
snd stores of the battery were found
to be in an unsatisfrotory condition
and Col. Holmes expressed dissatisfaction with them. The Rifles' armory
was then inspected and found to be
in soldier-like shape, and the inspecting officer seemed to be very well
pleased with the condition everything
was found in. The rotten oondition
of the clothing attracted his attention,
and he appointed Capt Scoullar,
Lieut. McNaughten and Lient.
Glover a board to examine and report
on it. He also ordered Capt. Scoullar
to obtain estimates of the cost of the
necessary repairs to the drill ihed.
The inspection was minute and
thorough in every particular and it is
to be hoped the result of the inspecting
officer's visit will be beneficial to the
Westminster corns. Lt.-Col. Holmes
will be dined by tho officers of the
Westminster militia this evening, at
the Colonial, and to-morrow morning
he leaves for the capital, via Vancouver,

to request him to hand over to Mr. W.
J. Walker the books, papers, etc., the
property of the corporation, in his possession. Mr. Robinson stated he hod

For some years, aa moat of our
readers tire awaro, tho Westminster
board of trade bus boen earnestly endeavoring to induce tho federal government to have a chart of the Baud
heads and Fraser River as far up ns
this city nnd have it published for the
information of mariners. The government continually excused itself on
various pretexts, and refused to do
anything. On the occasion of the
visit of the deputy-minister of marine
to this city last summor the board
brought the whole matter before him,
pointing out tho injustice this oity and
district wore suffering in consequence
of the absence of any official chart.
We are glnd to learn that a letter has
been received by tho president of tho
board, from the deputy-minister, in
which he statea that a chart of the
rivor is now nearly completed, and ho
expects it will bo published shortly for
tho information of mariners. This is
vet-* welcome news. If tho promised
chart is accurate, and shows the true
depth of water in the channel, it will
place us in a much bettor position than
we ever have been for inducing seagoing vessels lo take charters for this
city. One by one tho obstacles whioh
hnvo beon standing in the way of our
advancement aro giving way to the
persistent energy of our citizens, and
the horizon keeps growing brighter
