The Newfoundland fisheries difficulty between the English and
Frenoh is still left in u position
which may cause international
complications, says an exchange.
If M, Goblet, tho French ' minister
of foreign affuirs, should carry out
his avowed intention of rooting out
the British lobster canning factories
established along tho portions of the
Newfoundland coaat claimed by
French lisiiermen a very bitter and
angry fooling will be aroused.
A new opening has been found
forAlbertaonterprise. The demand
in England for horses for army and
other, purposes has induced a. number*! prominent Alberta stockmen
to embark in the business of breeding horses. A sample carload is to
be shipped to England from Calgary,
and the result of the experiment
will, no doubt, be awaited with
interest. It is oUitned by4be Calgary preBS that; the whple;of Alberta
from the Peace rivei to Montana
can profitably grow horses.
GOVERN'R SWINEFORD
Says   the   Alaskan   Commercial
Company makes Slaves of the
Indians.
A Haytien Gunboat Deliberately
Collides with the Str. Haytien
Republic.
The International Marine Conference Proposed by the United
States Falls Through.
Says an eastern exchange: Annexation to the United States received another set-baok the other
day in the defeat of Mr. Sol. White
forthe Windsor mayoralty. When
a border-town like Windsor will
not support annexation there is
not muoh hope of the country generally adopting it. Mr. Sol. White,
it should he added, came out for
mayor as an avowed annexationist,
"just for fun," we suppose and great
was the "hoorah" among a certain
class* of American,,papers^ _who
prophesied that he would ho triumphantly returned and a signal victory scored for annexation on Oanadian ground. It has been just the
other way round, of course.
\ most extraordinary event has
recently occurred about three miles
from Berthior-au Hnute, Que. A
little over a week ago a farmer
named St Vigrace heard a rumblii -
noise not unlike nu eurchqnake.
Hushing out of the house he was
astonished to see the land about
fifty yards distant settling down.
The poor man saw his barns tumbling to pieces, his cattle getting
crushed and the earth rolling with
terrible noise into the river,
Three hundred yards distant what
was a high bank along the river
has disappeared and in its place is
an enormous cavity some live or
aix acres in exteirtvud twenty Or
thirty feet deep. There must have
been a vast subterraneous cavern,
the thickness of the crust plainly
visible being not more than a couple
of feet thick. Several cows and
horses were killed, many barns
were smashed to pieces and the scene
is a sorry ruin. A fresh crack in
the earth, six inches wide, made its
appearance in another place and
further developments are expected.
The spot has been visited by hundreds of people and great excitement
prevails.
Under the heading, "How Vicky
was won," an exchange has the
following characteristic anecdote
about "Unser Fritz" : In 1866,
shortly after the Bohemian campaign
Grown Prince Frederick William
visited Carlsbad, the most popular
German resort Travelling incognito,
he was able to indulge his taste for
simplicity, and took rooms in the
upper story of the house of a
burger-frau, to whom, in time, he
becamo very communicative. The
place was like a home to the future
ruler. Ho would sit for hours in
the kitchen, talking gossip to the
old lady, and invariably opening his
letters in her presence. These,
when from the Grown Princess, he
would often read aloud, commenting
upon their contents. "What a
dear good woman my wife is," he
said one day, after perusing the
daily packet, "and how warmly she
loves mo I She is an excellent
housewife, careful of everything,
superintending the kitchen as woll
as tho ball-room, It is now fifteen
years since I married hor, and every
year has made us happier. But I
must toll you how I won hor. I
wus only 24 at the time, and Count
Moltke accompanied me to England
as my adjutant, Vicky was a mere
child, but so clever, so good und
true! Her father and mother, too,
were the best parents I have ever
known. After a few days I was in
love up to my eon.*-; •-I-'; ec-uld- -not-
resist her, I confessed my infatuation to the princo, who good-
naturedly encouraged me. But the
mother wus not so kind-hearted,
and ducidt-d that Vicky should
know nothing of hor suit until after
her confirmation. However, the
fates worked in my favour, "Late
one afternoon, shortly before my
departure, we were riding together
in the shady lanes of Windsor. I
was at Vicky's side. Field daisies
grew along the way, which, Vioky
said, wore indicative of good luok.
I plucked one and offered it to hor,
trembling ns I did so, uncertain of
its reception. She took it, blushed,
and gave me courage to stammer
my confession. My trembling
ceased as sho gave me hor hand; her
eyes filled with tears. And to my
eyes come tears, too. But they
were tears of joy which alone have
been shed since the happy day on
which we took one another for
better and for worse."

swine ford's bepokt.
Washington, Jan. 18. — The last
report of Governor Swineford, gf
Aluka, which has juit been received
atthe interior department ii very voluminous. The governor first enters
into an elaborate description of tbe
territory and estimate! the annual resources at about $9,000,000, divided
as follows: Fisheries, 84,000,000, minerals, $2,000,000 all other resources,
83,000,000. He urges the development of the territory's mines, especially of coal, which he claims eiists in
large quantities. Considerable space
is devoved to tho charges againat the
Alaska Seal Company and he statea
that those heretofore published give
only a portion of the story. He criticizes the company severely and charges
them with ill-treating Indians and
making them slaves, and of completely
demoralizing business in the territory.
He attacks the congressional investigation of the charges and Bays it will
not amount to anything. In conclusion, he recommends the entire reorganization of the territory and that the
Indians be given better civil government.
EDITOR WEST CAPIASED.
Chicago, Jan. 18.—Judge Clifford
has this morning issued capias for the
arrest of J. J. West, editor of tho
fim-a as asked hy Capt. M. J. Scha-
ack, Bail will be fixed nt 83,000.
This is the result sf the Times' crusade
against Schaack, Bonfield and  others.
CIGAR MAKERS  STRIKE.
New York, Jan. 18.—All tho cigar
makers employed in 40 Havana cigar
manufacturers in this city struck today against the reduction of $2per 1000
which the bosses made 18 months airo.
Tho strikers number over 1000 and aro
Tiostly Cubans with a sprinkling of
Americans.
SOUTH DAKOTA   REFUSED.
Washington, Jan. 18.—The house
this morning resumed the consideration
of territorial bills, pending the question being the MacDonald substitute
for tho Springer Omnibus bill. The
substitute provides for the immediate
admission of south Dakota and was
rejected by yens 117* nays 122.
INTERNATIONAL  MARINE   CONFERENCE.
New York, Jan. 18.—A member of
parliament cables as follows from London to this morning's Herald; "The
statement having been made here to
the effect that Secretary Bayard had
recalled the invitation whioh he had
addressed to the various governments
to take part in an international maritime conference owing to certain demands made by Great Britain, I
thought it right to ascertain for you
the exact facts from the very best authority. Whether or not Mr. Bayard
has recalled the invitations is of course
better known in Washington than in
London, but I am able to givo an explicit contradiction to the statement
that Great, Britain has made any demands of a nature to throw serious
obstacles in the way of the proposed
conference; The project originated in
an act of congress and no objection
was made here to a conference with
tho view of deciding certain questions
connected with the rule of the road at
sea, lights and other matters relating
to the practical work of navigation.
%o such points alone was the action of
tho conferenco to be confined. That
was well umlurstoi-d on all side*.
When, however, matters had proceeded a little further it was found that
certain difficulties existed with regard
to the application of the principles
likely to be discussed. Great Britain,
as having the greatest mercantile marine in the world could scarcely be
called upon to accept proposals which
might have the effect of interfering
with thu ordinary course of trade.
These difficulties were neither created
by the United States nor by England,
neither has there been any disagree
ment between the two governments on
tho subject. No demands have been
made on one side or rejected on the
other. It was found iu effect that tho
conference whs impracticable and if
held could lead tu no useful results.
Fur tho prone')., ihorefore, it ii in
abeyance, but I am assured the British government it perfectly willing at
any timo to discuss the arrangement
with a view of insuring the safety of
vessels at sen, or any other question of
interest to the powers which aro en*
gaged in carrying on international
commerce. If the conference provided
for by act of congress breaks down it
will Bimply bo owing to the facta that
tho Bcheme would not work, and that
practical men speedily recognized this
when it camo to be closely examined.
The statements by correspondents at
Washington are thorofore exaggerated
if not wholly unfounded."
A DELIBERATE  DEED.
Pout au Prince, Jan. 18.—The
steamship Haytion Republic was run
into by the Haytien gunboat Novelle
Voldrngun on Dec. 20th. Slight dam-
ago was done to cither vessels. The
Haytien gunboat was onterimr the
harbor at full speed and could have
steamed to the anchorage without any
change of course but when within 200
yards of the Haytien Republic hor
helm was suddenly put a-port nnd remained so until she struck that vessel.
Then her engines were reverted and
booked to a distance of 200 yards She
then again steamed full speed until a
short distance from the Haytion when
her course was slightly changed just
missing her. The gunboat was hailed
both times and no answer made, neither did the captain attempt to ascertain
the damage he had done or offer as*
sistanco. After ascertaining the damage done, tho Galena sent armed
boats to the offending gunboat and a
statement was made that the jamming
of the tiller ropes caused the collision.
It is the opinion thit it   was a
definite attempt to sink the released
ship. A board of tho Galena's officers
met next day and demanded an investigation by the Haytien government.
Redress will be demanded upon the
return of the Galena from Kingston,
Jamaica, where she steamed on January 1st to coal and communicate by
cable with the American government.
On December 31st Legitime offered to
pay an indemnity of 8100,000 to the
Haytien Republic. This will be accepted, one half payable, immediately
and the reminder in installments.

WASHINGTON   NOTES.
Washington, Jin. 17.—In the Bon-
ate, to-day, Hoar, from the committee
on common privileges, and elections,
reported in favor of the resolution for
a joint meeting of the two houses to
count electoral votes on Feburarv
13th. *
Consideration of the tariff bill was
then resumed, the pending question
being amendments -to tin-plate paragraphs. Argument was carried on at
a great length on behalf of tho republicans. The argument was made that
there was abundance of tin in Dakota
and other parts of the country and an
increased duty on tin plate would develop the tin mines and-be remunerative to the tin plate industry, On behalf of the democrats it was argued
tbat the proposed increase in duty on
tin plate was for the purpose of establishing a non-existant industry and
was dangerous and exceptional legislation, carrying protection to an extreme
never before contemplated by judicious
minds.

HENRY M.  STANLEY SAFE.
London, Jan. 14.—Tbe Chronicle
asserts that the government will be informed of Henry M. Stanley's safaty
long before the expedition led by S.

for keeping secret at present the whereabouts of the explorer.

EXPLOSION OF FIllE.IUMP.
London, Jnn. 18.—An explosion of
tiro-damp occurred to-day in Hyde
Colliery, near Manchester. Seven
bodies 'nave been taken from the mine.
A hundred miners itill remain entombed in the mine. It cannot be
ascertained how many lives are lost.
Later.—Twenty-five miners were
killed by the explosion.
THB EARTHQUAKES.
Edinburgh, Jan. 18.—A slight
earthquake was felt near here to-day.
No damage was done.
THE   HORROR MITIGATED. '-
London, Jan. 18.—Later Zanzibar
despatches somewhat mitigate the
horror of the first reports of the native
attack on the German mission itation
at Tugu on Sunday, and it is now said ,
only four missionaries were murdered
during the attack. Threo othersj!:
however, were carried off and are now
held for ransom by the captors, ono of
them being a woman. Two male
missionaries escaped. The German
squadron has landed a detachment of
marines to garrison Dars and Salem,
THE PANAMA CANAL CO.
Paris, Jan. 18.—The Parisian bank
has undertaken to defray all expenses
of the issue of shares and organization
of the new Panama Canal Co., but it
stipulates that after the opening of the
canal it shall receivo one per cent, of
the net receipts. Thore is no doubt
the meeting to he held on tbe 20th will
approve of tho project. If three hundred thousand shares are not represented at the meeting the old company
will go into judicial liquidation.
THE PARNELL COMMISSION.
London, Jan. 17.—When the Parnell commission resumed its Bitting today, Patrick Delaney continued his
testimony. He persisted in his statement that he saw Boyton point
out to Brady, one of the Invincible*,
Chairman Burke of the prison board
for assassination. The witness Was
positive that he had often seen Michael Davitt in the company with Dan
Curley. Delaney was shown a photograph of a man in uniform, and he
declared that it was the picture of a
man known as "Number One." The
Attorney-General, Sir Richard Webster, the couniel for the Ttwiea, then
read portions of some correspondence
between Matt Harris and Michael
Davitt. The latter writing from New
York announced that John O'Leary
was in America trying to upset
Davitt *s endeavors to assist the Land
League. "O'Leary is supported
though," wrote Davitt, "by nobody
savea few supporters of that blatant
ass, O'Dono-an Rosss. American
Nationalists are common sense men
and O'Leary haa failed. Rossa ia now
trying hia hand. He is a cowardly,
low ruffian with no pluck whatever."
BISMARCK'S BRUTALITY.
London, Jan. 17.—The Standard
says that the publication of Professor
Gefficken's indictment shows that
Prince Bismarck himself was the author of the monstrous charges against
SirR. D. Morier. The kaiser hu
chosen openly to associate himself with
the chancellor's tortuous policy. There
is a cold brutality about the whole
business which is exceedingly unpleasant. Prince Bismarck has outraged
Eublic opinion in a way in which it has
ardly ever been outraged beforo. The
Times says: ''Nothing but the habit
of trying to repress discussion conld
ever have imposed upon an intellect
like Prince Bismarck a to form such
an absurdly exaggerated estimate of
the importance of a private dislike
and academic opposition. One hardly
knows which is the weaker side, the
preliminary attack 011 Sir Robert D.
Morier or the publication of the indictment, There is a striking want of
dignity and magnanimity about the
whole affair."
BISMARCK   INDISPOSED.
Berlin, Jan. 17.—Biimarek is suffering from indisposition in consequence of hii exertions in the Reichstag on Tuesday.

London, Jan. 17.—John Bright has

Friday Evening, Jan. IS, insa.
During the last few days, as our
readers nre aware—sinco tho nominations for aldermen—quite n crop
of anonymous leaflets • have been
scattered broadcast iu tlie city and
thrust upon tho attention of the
electors. What their definite object is, none can tell, at least from
the fatherless waifs themselves,
-as the writers have apparently taken as much pains to
conceal this ns they have tc withhold their names. Some of the productions are merely comical, others
incoherent to a great extent, und
the only one that we would trouble
our readers to notice ut nil, and that
as briefly as possible, is tho brochure
circulated yesterday, and signed
"Injunctors." This is worjly and
anfractuous, and we shall not torture and bewilder our readers by
leading them through its irrelevant
and thrice-told details and devious
ways. To demonstrate just how
crooked a really crooked stick is, no
test is so reasonable, so labor-saving,
and.at the same time, so well adapted
to tlie cloar and easy comprehension of
the dullest and laziest intellect, as
the very simple one of laying beside the first a perfect straight-edge.
This we shall endeavor to do, by
laying before our readers a brief,
plain statement of fact, merely turning aside once or twice to emphasize
some glaring obliquity in the
"crooked stick."
Ih   the   first   place,    then,   tlie
original agreement re Southern Railway matters, first made   public   on
July 10,18S8, so fur ns it relates to
the manner of paying tlie $150,000
bonus is concerned   (all   the   other
details of the agreement  were   substantially tho samo as at   present),
was expressed, briefly,   as   follows;
When  the   first   10 miles is completed the city will pay the company
$50,000,   at   tbe  completion of 20
miles §50,000 more, and when   tlie
line is finished to tlie boundary, and
trains running, the balance   of  the
bonus is to be paid.   As a  parallel
and  simultaneous   work, the ferry
and workshops were to be completed
before  the  last  instalment of the
bonus should be paid.   The council
considered these  propositions   and
conditions  satisfactory,    and    the
drawing  up  of a bonus by-law, to
embody theso conditions,   was  proceeded   with   forthwith,   nnd   the
prospect gave very general satisfaction.     Indeed   considerable   disappointment was felt   and   expressed
when it became known that a hitch
in the city's charter was causing do-
lay und difficulty in  preparing   the
by-law.   Our  readers  need not be
told that when the matter  did  get
in  shape  before the public again,
whioh was on tho 27th of July.thero
were two by-laws instead of one—a
ferry nnd workshops were ostensibly
bonused, merely to circumvent  the
technical  hitch   referred to in the
city's charter. As every one knows,
these by-laws—really the Southern
Railway   enterprise—were   passed
unanimously   by   the city council,
and on the 7th of August, 1888, the
ratepayers of Westminster, practically unanimously ratified tho council's action a.nd declared enthusiastically in favor of the railway.   Quite
naturally,   it    was    subsequently
sought to carry out the spirit, and
evade the letter, of the by-laws and
agreements:   By the company,   because they were still bound by thoir
original agreement with the contractors, to pay over tho bonuses as tho
work progressed—without, howover,
"paying one dollar till that  dollar's
worth of work had been done,"   By
the city council, and   nearly   all of
tho  ratepayers,   as   was time and
again demonstrated, bocauso they intelligently grasped tlie fact tlmt the
railway   was   tho  real object—the
greater   including   tho   less—and
clearly foresaw that, by paying the
bonus  as   originally intended, tho
city would secure, at least, the road
completed to the boundary   (which
was the limit of our  charter  anyway) and the ferry and workshops
as well; whilo, by   clinging  to, and
insisting on tno enforcement of, the
letter of the by-laws—as have done
the gallant   "injunctors"—the  city
would   be  obliged to hand over its
9150,000 as Boon as ever the   forry
and workshops might be completed
—even   if  not  one   sod had been
turned on the rond, and neither the
oompany nor the contractors had the
slightest intention of turning a   sod
until doom's day.   Truly a laughable
and comfortable predicament for tho
oity to be in!   But this is the strict
logical position which we oooupy today,  thanks  to  the efforts of tho
sapient  and   patriotic - injunctors,
aidei and, abetted by the creatures
of riial interests.   And then  theso
Mmi"'h.j«Acton,  or some of  their
morith-pfece*, whoawwir by the by-
Iftwi and say, "We'll not pay a cent
for anything but ferry and  work-
shopil" talk  glibly  iu   this  wise:
"Why ihould tho Southern Bailway
Oompany be paid oue cent of the
$150,000 till the road is built  and
connection made with tho American
•wtflmdmHwaysfor'-'A clause
like this should be in the bond:
'Tho citizens of New Westminster
shall not be called onto pay any
part of the bonus until the connection by rail with Seattle is complete"' Such Roople aro either not
long out of the nursery, or else
rapidly approaching it fur the second
time. They plainly show that they
do not understand either by-laws or
agreements, and do not wish to be
bound by either, or by anything, in
fact, that would interfere with a
freo exercise of their very erratic
whims. They evidently wouldn't
know when they were suited, and
it's certainiy a mercy for the town
that these people are in such a hopeless minority that they can't do
much mischief. They may think,
some of them, that their intentions
are good, but when they mako such
exhibitions of themselves, thoy cannot expect but thut logical inferences
will be drawn, and even harsh things
said by some when they see our own
citizens thus stupidly getting and
remaining in tho way. As our
readers know,a systematic and practicable scheme was arranged, by
means of a debentures trust, which
tbe ratepayers endorsed, to administer the debentures according to the
spirit of the agreements, Tho injunctors, as they proudly boast, had
this quashed, and, now that the
question has been raised, tho debentures must be handled strictly
accordingly to the by-laws, Well, if
the injunctors are satisfied, everyone else is, But what more do
they want? Evidently something;
for tho "injunction" volcano is in a
stato of violent eruption just now.
As we have intimated before, no
one can tell from tho effusions just
what is wanted, for these are obscure in every sense of tho word.
But from the fact that eruptions
are taking place at this particular
time, we can hazard a guess that
the object is to got in an "injunction" council. What for, we cannot
say. This is another problem. The
injunctors claim that they have
patriotically saved the city from
ruin by compelling the present or
any future council to deal with the
debentures strictly according to tbe
by-laws. They also protest thai
they are, heart and soul, in favor of
tho Southern Railway scheme: all
they want is to have it carried out
according to the by-laws. Tbe latter they have secured. What, then,
is all this harping about-—this rehashing of often ventilated and now
defunct railway grievances—this
piling of Pelion on Ossa—in a frantic and labored attompt to construct
a huge "bogie" out of morbid and
disordered imaginations, in tho vain
hope of influencing the election on
Monday, und, presumably—for the
inference is almost forced—to get
in a council after their own heart,
sueh an one as would, in their mnd
and unreasoning panic, do their best
to hnve the entire railway scheme
repudiated and killed, and wind up
by trying to get an injunction on
tho town—to prevent it growing.
As a sort of melancholy diversion,
wo might just glance at the "injunctors' " unique mathematical
nightmare. In their method of
computing interest, .fcc.—heaping up
an exaggerated pyramid of figures
for tho next half century, and thon
wilting nervelessly before the formidable phantom of their own lop
sided and bungling sorcery—one is
reminded very forcibly of tho old
school-book fable of the kitchen-clock
that got talking to itself one fine
morning. The pendulum, we believo it was, took to figuring how
many times it would havo
to wag in twenty-four hours, and,
multiplying that indefinitely, suddenly found that it was "exceedingly
tired" and refused to wag a single
wag more. The pendulum, however, so saith tradition, recovered
almost immediately from its fit of
temporary aberration, and thereafter continued to be a useful member of society. * Everyone will trust
that the injunctors may also emerge
from tlie clouds and tho fogs of
their morbid imaginings into the
clear sunlight of common sense and
patriotic endeavor, and, hand in
hand with their moro hopeful and
keen-visioned fellow-citizens, cooperate once more in building up,
whero they are now pulling down,
nnd thus have a hand after all, in
the honorable and inspiring work
of hastening toward her glorious
destiny the staunch old royal city
on the banks of the  noble  Frasor,

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Electors of New Westminster City:
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,—
At the request of a number o** friends I
huvo consented lo placo my name ln
nomination for the position of alderman
ut tho eomlni* election, fully real I zing tho
Importance and duties of the ollice. If
elected I will endeavor In the host of my
a iii Illy, to place our city in tho trout rank
of the cities of B. C. The following important questions will havo my careful
attention:
1, Railway.—1 will uso every legitimate
means lu my power to bring to n successful termination tlie l-ulldiii-'iuulcom-
filetlon of UieSouthr-rn Railroad, and will
reat llbemlly any projected railway
which mny wish to run Inio our city,
always carefully guarding tlio best Interests of tho city. And It Is my opinion
If we are true to ourselves ami bury auy
little differences that mny exist and work
shoulder to shoulder, we can make New
Westminster tho greatest railway center
uud most Important city between yi-nitle
and Alaska.
2. Wateh Supply.—I am In favor of tho
city owning Its own water works, for there
is a very largo revenue to be derived fiom
this source, 1( properly conducted, nnd, if
elected, I wii I ut on co hike up I his question
and deal with it ou business principles,
Water rate debentures when Issued,henr
their own value and will not be one dollar's tax on the ratepayers.
It. St.WElt.AGJ*,—This Is one of tho most
tin pi irt a n i questions Mint the new council
will lmve to (--nipple with, and, as there is
bound to be a large cinl'-iiillon hern this
year, it behooves us lo be nl.ve und get
our city well advanced co ns to keep away
those ilmul diseases whleli wc- so mercifully escaped lust your. And 1 have no
doubt if you . led tlierlglil men a scheme
can be gol up wlicivby llie i-lly can bo
pi(.]:i'i'!.ysewi'n'd,illHt Uiei'eve;iiiederived
from Hie sate of water be made to pay the
Interest and sinking fund for both water
works unit -sewerage.
4, STttKRTS—Something must be done
at onco to open up nil streets In the city
so ns lo give workingmen und mechanics
a chance loget to tliolr lots and buildings,
and, It elected. I will give tills subject my
careful nttentlon and hourly,support,
fi. City Kali,.—If any proposition is
brought forward for the erection of 11 suitable city hull, and If tho finances of tho
oity will allow il, I will give It my warmest support.
G. Street Liqiitino.—I will favor tho
extending ami improving of our system of
Street lighting, for there Is no doubt It will
stund considerable improvement.
7. Paiiic—In ordor to mnke tlio coming
agricultural show n success we must puta
portion of the city park Innflt. condition
with suitable buildings, etc. If elected I
will do my best to make the grounds a
credit to the royal city, I nm also In favor
of removing the unsightly stumps on
Albert Crescent nud planting a few shade
trees to replace tho stumps. Nature lias
done much for our city and it only wonts
touching up a little to mnko it perfect.
8. Public Library.—Thero is no doubt
a new building is wanted to replace tho
delnpidated one now occupying a valuable lot, nnd there Is no doubt lu my mind,
but that a suitable one conld bo erected
with stores underneath nnd library nbove;
nnd tho rents from snld stoics would more
than pay for Interest nud sinking fund,
nnd leave a balance for keeping tho library In proper condition.
9. Manufacturers.—I will encourago
any manufacturers thnt coutemplnto starting business in tills city, treating them
In a liberal manner, and will use every
effort toshow thom tlio advantage of doing
business here, it is well known that manufactures nre tho backbone of any eity.
10. Communications,—I will urge upon
onr representative ihe necessity of ihe
Dominion governmentsubsldlzlnga'dally
boat between hero nnd Richmond und
also between here nnd Lndnors Landing.
Wo must also get better connections with
tho surrounding district.
11. LetteuBoxes.—I will also endeavor
to have tho postal authorities supply nnd
put in placo letter boxes iu the suburbs
of tho city.
12. I will also urge nn our city member
the necessity of having tho locnl government place a sum of money In this year's
estimates to put tlio North Arm road in a
fit condition for travel.
1.1. Street Naming and NuMiiEitiNa.—
If elected I will urge upon my colleagues the necessity of having ourstreets
properly named and buildings numbered,
as Is always done In well-regulated cities,
In fact, nuy project that mny bn brought
up for advancing tho interests of the city
will havo myrarefiil attention and hearty
support,
I remain,
Yonr Obedient Servant,
E, S. SCOULLAR.

,An   Old   Lawyer's   Remarkable
Story of a Double Murder.
> ndiKputablo oiroumstanttnl   Evidence —
How un Innocont Han Was Cleared of
un Awful Crlino-Coiifftsslon of
the fluilty One.
Several old lawyers wero sitting together
tlio olber dny in a Brooklyn court-room
roluliiif* reminlsconccs of tholr practice.
Ono of tho stories told, as given in tho
Brooklyn Citizen, is worth repeating:
" Komo timo ago, when I was down In
Doovgln," said an oldorly lawyer, "acaso
twino to my knowledge whtch   presents
iiumy curious fcutui'ea,    Mr. Cameron) a
roiiil'-mnn of moans, resided   with   his
friiiit;:htor Helen in tho  neighborhood of
fJolumbus. in that State.    His wife hnd
•on dead somo years, and his only domes-
lies wero an olderly negress named Han-
|m,!i mid hor son, a lad of eighteen, known
a Jim.  Two youug mon named Dyson and
Milli-i- used to pay attentions to Helen, and
lit wns not known that sho had ovor favored
line moro than the other.  Mr. Cameron one
Jnioniing rodo over to a friend's house, taking Jim with him.   Ho wns to remain ovor
Tight und return tbo next morning early,
■Jn reaohiug homo accordingly, between
fight and nine o'clock, he found all quiet
■.round the house.   Tho front door was
Ipon, but neither Helen nor Hannah wns
Icon.  Mr. Cameron-went to bis daughter's
wm and .knocked, but thoro was no re-
hpoiiso.   Finding that tho door was not
fastened, ho  went into tho room.    His
Viuphtqr was lying in bed, dead.  A bottlo,
Kvhiuli had evidently contained chloroform,
^-bb standing on a chair by the bedside.
_ towel almost covered the dead girl's
■ace.   The premises were searched, but
pothing could be seen of Hannah.
tf " The authorities were notified and a group
pf men who wore examining the grounds
Lround the houso came across tho dead
■tody of a negro. The negro hod been shot
In tho side, tho ball having penetrated a
Ktul part. The body was discovered not
"or a hundred yards from the dwelling,
lying in an orchard near a rustic seat  In a
Ihort timo the secret of Hannah's absence
irns explained.  About 9:30 o'clock the previous evening ahe went to tbe houie of a
leighbor. Bhe told a friend that Mr. Cam*
iron was away and only Miss Helen at
Porno, and that as tome gentleman, ihe
pidn't know who, had called to visit* the
wing lady, sho thought she would venture
kvny for a few minutes to have a chat
Efter staying perhaps fifteen minutes she
left. In a short time her friends heard a
looisc at tho door, and, on opening it, found
Hannah lying outside, apparently dead.
They carried hor into the house, and sho
pad continued unconscious ever sinco.  I
y as woll say that a dootor wat procured
Jvho pronounced Hannah to bo sufforing
■rom brain fever.  That turned out to be
Ebo enso; tho unfortuaato woman remained
En a helpless condition, physically and men*
|ally, for several weeks.
"As a bottlo of chloroform was found near
Helen, so a revolver was found In tho right
■mini of tho negro, and the Inference in eaeh
L'hbq wus suicide. It was a remarkable
Hmiiilu tragedy, but as thero was not a jot
kif evidence pointing to violence on tho part
lit ai bird person, the only conclusion to be
Jrnwlictl was thtt Helen and the negro had
■taken tholr own lives. At the end of a week,
Ihowi tit, Mr. Byson appeared on tho spot
[Io said that ho had been visiting at Atlanta
fend knew nothing of tbo double tragedy unfit his return. Then he said he had ln his
KKscsslon a letter which might throw some
l.ght on tho death of Miss Cameron. He de-
■posed that at about a quarter to ten o'clock
lon tlio evonlng of tbe day on which Mr. Cam*
len-ii left homo he took a .walk toward tbat
■gum Ionian*! residence. Ai he reached the
■crossroad, not Ur distant, he saw by the
■moonlight a man approaching from the
■direction of tbo house, and recognized
■Miller. Byson hid himself, and observed
laiiii'Tasho passed throw something over
■the hedge, Whon Miller was fur enough
■nwny Byson looked over the hedge and saw
In small, white objeot lying upon the grass.
■He climbed a gate near by and found that
■thu object was a piece of crumpled paper,
Iwhii'h on being opened proved to ben letter.
I He si ruck t match and law that the totter
Iwu-j from Hlsa Cameron, Inviting Milieu to
It-all that evening. Byson deposed that
Landing that such a favor had been extended
Ito Miller, ho did not coll at Mr. Cameron's'
\ houso as ho bad intended to do. I
"Miller was arrested and admitted hav-'
I ing received the letter and haviug culled on
I Misa Cameron as It requested him, but he
I said that at ton o'clock he left tho house, as
I Miss Cameron bad been up very early that
morning and waa tired. It was proved,!
[however, that he had bought chloroform a
I few dayi beforo at a druggist's store in
I Columbus and in the very bottlo found by!
EMiss Cameron's bedside,; far it hid a label
■ upon it of another drug-storo ovor which
I the druggist had pasted his own name.
I The druggist remembered this fact dis*
I tim-tly and alio that the word 'chloroform'
I wan written ln blue ink and spelt without
I tho 'li.' On tho removal of tho outside label
I in court tho other label was found and was
I exactly ns tho druggist had described it
I Miller admitted having bought tho chloro-
I form, but said ho bad got it for Miss Cam-
I enn, who used it to take out itarasfrom
" Miller was held for tbo grand jury, and,
as the delays in justice down there ure not
many or long, ho was brought to trial within union ill of the alleged crime. On tho.
very flrat day of tho trial, however, Up.
negress Hannah showed reuaarkabo .signs
of improvement, and began to'givo utter*,
onco to expressions which induced hor
friends, with whom she had remained, to
send for Mr. Camerou, who took along with
him a friend. It had always boen supposed
that, on returning homo on tbo fatal night,
Hannah had found her young mistress dead
and had at onco rushed back to her friend's
houso to give tho alarm; but that tho
terrible discovery had given her such a
shock as to affect hor brain* and bring on
the attack of fever, which had io nearly
proved ratal. Her disclosures, ou recovering hor faculties,'- showed aditteront state
oftliiiigs.
'•She said that, as sho returned homo,
and when she had reached tho sido of the
bouse, intending to onter by tho roar, she
bbw tin unknown negro standing a little
away from tho open window of Miss Cameron's bedroom, which was on tho Unit
hour. Tlio noxt moment tho nogro started
as though frightened, aud immediately u
whito man appeared at the window, sprung
out grasping a revolver, and followed tlio
negro, who fled toward tho roar of the
dwelling. Tho man flrod and tho nogro
gavo a shriek. Sho was terror-stricken,
and Instantly started book for hor friends'
houso. Sho remembered seeing the light in
tho window, and thon she lost consciousness. Tho man whom sho saw leap through
tho window, crasplng a revolver, and who
slarted iu pursuit of tho negro was Mr. Byson. Sho had no doubt about it whatever,
and could not have boen mistaken, as tho
moon was shining full upon him and she
knew him well.
"Tho trial of Miller was stopped and Byson was arrested. Tho revolver found tn
the hand of tho dead nogro was brought forward and traced to tho possession of Byson.
Of course, you may easily guess tho uud.
Miller's trial was postponed and Byson was
Indicted and tried and convicted of tho
killing of the negro, but up to this timo no
light was thrown upon tho mystery surrounding tho death of Miss Cameron,
though it was believed that Dyson's presence in her room on the night of the shooting of tlio negro had something to do with it
"When Byson found that his fato was
certain ho made a confession, of which the
following is the substance: 'My ono 1 idea
was vengeance, but I hadn't mado upim**)
mind what sliapo it should take. As 'I
looked around tho room I saw a lottor boar
ing Miller's address ou tho dressing table
and I put it in my pooket Next I saw a
bottlo of chloroform, and a horrible suggestion presented itself. I laid down the lamp,
took the bottlo of chloroform and saturated
a towel with tho liquid. Then I placed it to
tho nose and mouth of MIsb Cameron. Sho
struggled and gasped, but was soon still.
At this moment I heard a sound as of one
gasping, and, glancing to tho window,
which was open, saw outsido a negro
watching mo with dilated oyes. I felt ut
once I was in this man's power. Drawing
iny revolver, I sprang out of tho window.
The nogro fled and I pursued. As he turned
round toward the orchard I flrod. He gavo
a scream, but still fled. I pursued bim in
tho orchard and saw him fall. I stood ovor
him until I was suro. ho wns dead and then
placed tho pistol in his hand to induce tho
belief that ho committed suicide. 1 started
early tho noxt morning for Atlanta. On
my way I remembered tho lotto***1 found In*
Miss Cameron's room and road it. It waa
the ono produced against Miller as evidence.
Miss Cameron had no doubt asked turn to
return it, with tho intontion of destroying
it, so that it might not compromise her.'
"Dyson, was hanged. Ho was a clever
follow, a good naturalist, and possessed of
much scientific knowledge Ho had led a
roving lifo and was utterly unprincipled.
Tlmt is my story. I helped to defend the
man, but I saw it was a bad caso from tho
outset Tho murdered negro waa'never
identified."	
THE QUEEN'S INCOME.
Victoria's Private  Estates and Her  Annual Allowance*.
Tho Loudon correspondent of tho Liverpool Daily Pott, referring to the rumor that
an Increased allowance will bo asked for on
behalf of tho Prince of Wales and his family, points out that tbo Queen has an
annuity drawn from tho consolidated fund
of -£385,000, which Ib specially allotted to
meet those expenses connected with her
high position the partial weight of which
has been transferred to the heir apparent.
But (continues tho correspondent) that is
only n portion of tho enormous income
which good fortune and frugal habits havo
placed at tho disposal of tho head of tho
royal family. Tho new Domesday Book discloses the fact tbat tho Queen's private
estates extend over 37,373 acros, tho annual
rental, evon at the lately depreciated prices,
being £30,733. Somo years ago hor Majesty,
acting under the advice of Lord Sydney,
purchased Clnromont for the sum of £78.-
000, estimated at tbo time as being a littlo
over half Its market value. It Ib Bald to be
worth to-day £150,000. The Queen also
possesses property at Coburg, aud tho
Villa Hohcnlobo at Baden. As to personal
property thoro was the bequest of a quarter
of a million left to her Majesty by Sir
James Camden Neild. This will was proved
In 1359, and tlio bequest must now have
reached magnificent proportions. Thca
thore was tho property. left by the Prince.
Consort, estimated to have reached nearly
£000,000, but as this will was never proved
and so escaped probate duty, tbo exact

AN OSTRICH RACE.       "~
Huge Birds That Seem to Cover Fourteen
Foet with Every Stride.
A writer In tho Providence Journal glvos
some interesting facts in regard to an ostrich farm near Los Angeles, Cal,, ownod
by Dr, J. C. Bketchley, Ho has sixty acres
dovotcd to ostriches, having Imported thirtj
palrs of those birds directly from Africa,
landing thom at Galveston, Tex. Ho ulsc
brought with thom four Madraseso nun
und women; theso peoplo being thoroughly
familiar with tho habits of the ostrich.
Their food is corn nnd alfalfa, tho latter 11
kind of California grass, of whioh at least
half a dozen crops aro frequently out off t lit
same ground in ono season. Theso ostriches weigh from 300 to 400 poundB each. The
male bird Ib black and the femalo gray,
and thoy are valuable chiefly for their feathers, tho finest of which Bell for 94 apiece,
according to this account, whilo good, common feathers bring (900 a pound. The
prlee of a full-grown pair of birds is Irom
8700 to 1800, and young birds, six mantlis
old, cost from 1150 to 9300, They are d very
long-lived 'creature, sometimes reaching
Iho ago of eighty years. Tho articlo oloaoa
with tho following account of an ostrich
race:
At a command from tho doctor ono of tbo
Madraseso keepers opened the door of one of
the pons, and in rosponso to the doctor's en: i
two superb ostriches came running to bim.
After caressing tho gentle croatunw (;*■
a few moments, ho showed them a lmndf ui
of Uys. of which thoy nro extremely f-.ud.
Two ot- bis men then restrained thu .birds
by placing nooses about tlioU-lugs until lie
and myself had walked to tho othor cud of
tho course. Thon, nt a signal from tho doe-
tor, tho birds woro rolouucd, and tho wmo
began. It seemed to mo these birds covered fourteen foot at ovory otrido. Like
tho wind thoy camo, their groat nocks
Btretehed forward and upward to tholr utmost length, thoir wings, liko arms, working with a motion similar to that made by
thoir logs, and lilting tho air with a mighty
■sound liko tho rushing of a whirlwind.
Nearer ond noaror thoy como, tholr rapced
Increasing at every momont till I wan ul.
most terrified loot thoy should run na down,
feeling t-ort ui ti that wo could not withst nml
tho shock. Thoy kept woll abreast for nearly half tho distanco, and thon ono began to"
forge ahead. He steadily Increased lm; load
till within a fow fdctof us, wbon bo Utvnod
his head, and, seeing that his compotitor
was considerably In tho rear, ho slaokcnod
hii pace, tnd, jogging op to the dootor, ro*
WlVCd his reward in figs and careniei.        I

of this kind coming from such a man

Millions uf Lobsters.
One of the press despatches received
on Wednesday, dated Buffalo, stated
that a car containing 17,000,000 lobsters was en route to the Pacifio coast.
To the ordinary reader Hub would
seem large but would be passed over
without muoh thought. 'Not so, howover, with Mr. Peter Grant who hns
an excellent eye for tho rhythm uf
figures generally and at once observed
that the proportions, though neat and
trim looking, must have suffered considerable padding. The following calculation made by Mr. Grant shows
that his first suspicions were correct.
Lobsters would average ono pound
each, therefore there would be 17,-
000,000 lbs. A car with the appliances
to bring live lobsters could not enrry
more than 20,000 lbs. at the most.
Divide 17,000,000 by 20,000 and it is
found that one little car is credited
with doing the work of 850 cars. Tho
above is bad enough but when the
despatch goes on to say that 5,000,000
white fish eggs would also bo placed
in the same car tho last vestiges of
probability are erased, and the wholo
gives the impression of being a most
unqualified inflation of tho truth,

The RIludMnslclan.
Speaking of Heine, the celebrated
violinist, who will give a performance
at the Oddfellows Hall next Wednesday evening, the Colonist says: Seldom
in history of this city has so rich a
musical feast been enjoyed by British
Columbians as that presented in The
Victoria lost evening by the great violinist Heine, and his talented wife and
daughter. So much has been Baid of
these artists by the press of overy land,
that all who attended last evening's
concert, came expecting a treat. Not
only were the*/ fully satisfied with
hearing exquisite music exquisitely
played, but every sense waa enthralled
by the mystic melodies of thu violin,
expressing every feeling of tho human
heart, with a power greater far than
that of words. Tho violin in the hands
of Heine, seemed to laugh aloud in
very gladness, then murmur in soft
plaintive melody, then sob, then weep,
rise in the wild shrill shriek of
defiance or the sharp cry of despair,
or sink in the grasping fearful groan or
of death. The instrument seemed itself a thing of life—a part of the
blind musician himself, who living in
his own aweet realm of sound, has
littlo, if aught, in common with the
busy bustling world.
"Peck's Bad Boy"
Of "Peck's Bad Boy," which will
bo played at Hart's Opera House on
the evenings of Friday and Saturday
noxt, tho Oregonian says : "The
'Pock's Bad Boy' company opened
thoir engagement at the Now Park
theatre last evoning to a good house,
especially the gallery, which was filled
to overflowing. It is unnecessary to
apeak of the pieco, as it is familiar to
everyone, having been given here
about three seasons ago. It cannot be
called a play, but simply a faroial melange designed to evoke laughter and
umuscnicnt and keep an audience in a
good humor for a couple of hours. In
thiB it is certainly a success. J, J.
Williams, the original Bad Boy, fully
sustains his well-earned soubriquet
for the pranks ho plays and the capers
he cuts could only be performed by
the very spirit of mischief. He is considerable of a comedian and mimic,
and his song "Johnny Jones and
Sister Suo," with chorus, nnd his
mimic recitation were capital and
enthusiastically encored. Frank Cal*
burt, as Sohultz, the grocoryman,
shared tho honors with Mr. Williams,
He was most amusing. His dialect is
rich and dear and his imitations in
tho picnic scene were thoroughly enjoyable. The rest o£ tho company is
clever and they do some pleasing local
work. The duet of the "Fisher
Maid" and "Die Waterfall" were well
given by Misses Laura nnd Elfie
Adams, nnd tho male quartette of
negro songs were especially well done."
The "Peck's Bad Boy' Co. will play at
Herring's Opera Houso on Monday
evening nut, tho 2.-st inst.

PUBLIC  OPINION.
Pertinently Posses Upon the Injunctors'
Pamphlet, nnd lias a Word for Ihe In*
junctors. 	
Tho pamphlet circulated by tho
"Injunctors" yesterday waa a surprise
to many after their statements the day
following the decision at Victoria,
"that they did not wish the by-laws
quashed," but those most intimately
acquainted with their full desires only
accepted those statements as the best
means they had of mitigating their
chagrin nt defeat. However, "Public
Opinion" felt willing to let tlie matter
drop and if possiblo die out, but this
now proof of their animosity against
the oft-expressed wishes of tho majority of the citizens calls for comment
and perhaps considerable cenaure. Is
it possible to get a council elected in
which no member Bits whoso name, influence and money is given to aid in
carrying out what will bo one of the
greatest boona to the city ? You old
chronics have tired the peoplo out;
you would not do any good if you
were elected, aud when the citizens
do placo men there that will do something for the city, you, "dog-in-the-
manger" style, growl; and in your
second you would try to breed trouble
in another direction between the provincial government and tho city—
another proof of your measures. Then
you air your ignorance in suggesting
that the $150,000 was wanted for
working capital for the construction of
tho Southern Railway ; but when it
suits your purpose, later on, you call
it a paltry sum when tho N. W. & S.
R. Co. wished to be secured ngainst
the trickery of such ub you. Thon in
your third you twist and squirm for
fear this money should bo expended
outside the city limits and would endeavor to impress it upon tlio public
mind in that way, but if you had had
the manliness to have been present at
the meeting held to discuss tho "ratepayers' bond" you would have heard
tho agreement read which exists between the city and the railway company, and you would not have lost any
sleep on that account. Yet if you
wanted to abide by tho strict letter of
the by-laws you would have workshops
and ferry nnd no railway. The citizens
havo confidence they are not dealing
with designing tricksters, as you would
impress, and passed tho by-laws in
such n way that you injunctors could
not give them any trouble under that
head. The secretary of tho board of
trado deals with this point bo fully
that further "Public Opinion" is unnecessary. ,pn your third page you
have taken into your enlightened
minds the task and havo construed
the mayor's speech and imputed to
that gentleman motives whioh only go
side by Bide with your other faulty
arguments. The mayor did not use
the words you quote, neither were
they such in substance. Then your
arguments, still weakening, attack
the honor and standing of the proposed trustees—their actions will bear
the sunlight. Then the only trouble
that is likely to "unfair the name of
our fair city" iB that you aro residents,
and it is a piece of good luck that only
five out of the eight of you can exorcise the francliiso Some of you have
lived here for a quarter of a century,
shut out, it was truo, from tho great
bulk of the civilized world, yet what
have you done for the city that you
should so suddenly tremble for its
interests 1 You now want men elected
to the council with sufficient intelligence to save these "bundles of blunders." Why did you not put some of
your number forward at tbo nomination ? Where are all your men of
intelligence ? Your lost great effort ts
to. launch into finance and question
the wisdom of our oivie servants in
laying the city under a debt. Show
us one oity of any importance in the
Dominion that has not a large debt
hanging over it. Why, while you
would discard the idea of debt which,
as tho city prospers, will not bo felt,
you would tako tho other course and
save the money up for twenty-four
yeara and then talk for another quarter
of a century before you would trust
what you had saved into the hands of a
syndicate, who were themselves putting out nine or ten times as much as
you—why you would find the last
man's funeral right on Columbia street
just about tho timo you thought to
succeed. From you injunotors, concluding, "Public Opinion" wishes to
know how it was that when you
had a good opportunity to come forward at the "bond" meeting and state
any objection to tho existing agreement, you failed to show up, and
"Publio Opinion" here emphasizes tho
fact that the agreement ia made and
connot be revoked and that the city
and company are alike liable and
havo to carry out each their part of
that agreement, and to put the matter
upon a surer foundation, the citizens
have bonded themselves to carry out
a work for the public good and while
you may squirm you can do nothing
more than take your modicino quietly
nnd at an early date find thu cars
whizzing past, blowing tho cobwebs off
you, and the genuine hum of mercantile activity taking the place of tho
funeral appearance of tho last twenty*
five years. The citizens will enforce
thoir oft repeated desires upon you
"Injunotors" as they record their votes
on Monday next nt the poll.

Ladies And Gentlemen,-
Having boen requested by a number of
citizens to allow myself to be a candidate
for alderman, and having been duly
nominated, I consider it necessary to
mako known to you some of my views
regarding a few of the important city
interests.
As regards railway matters, I am
solid; and having beeu connected with
railways for over six years, I am confident that it is to tho nest interests of
this city to make Itself a railway centre.
I believe the new council should-imme*
mediately lay the foundation for a first-
class water works and thorough sewerage system.
I shall endeavor to have all moneys
that can advisedly be taken from our
resources used to beautify our park,
knowing that such is one of the greatest
health-giving benefits any city can have,
both for the old as well as for the young.
This being the year for the provincial
exhibition to be held in this city, I will
do my utmost to make it a grand success.
I will givo my hearty support to anything that may be brought forward of
vital-interest to this city,
I remain, Ladies and Gentlemen,
Vour Obedient Servant,
