SCIENTIFIC jnSCEI,I,ANT.
Mr. G. J. Suryom, the British
meteorologist, lias expressed thai
belief that fogs are increasing—not
only in London but generally.
Iu Uie Gorman weather reports'
sioco 1870 Dr. Less has found 28
oases of snowfall at temperatures
between 41 ° and 53 ° F. Thunder
accompanied 11 cases.
Shells found in lower levels of the
caves at Dordogne, France, indicate
that tho Neandorthal man made
common use of the oyster, which is
thus proven to he the oldest domosti-
outed delicacy known to "man.
A Parisian circus presents the
spectacle of a fortified harbor, in
which a naval engagement takes
place. - The miniature vessels are
manoeuvred and.the guns fired from
behind the scenes by means of electrical apparatus.
The world now has 101 geograph-
icul Societies and 130 geographical
periodicals. Franco and ber colonics have 20 of the societies, with
10,800 members; Germany has 22
societies, and 9200 members; and
Great Britain and her colonies havo
9 societies, and SG00 members.
. The plate rolling mill at the St.
Jaques works, of Ohatillon Cominen-
try, has cylinders 3.28 feet in diameter and 19 feet long, with a total
weight of 55,000 pounds each. They
arc soon to be made capable of rolling fagots 5 feet thick, and ingots
weighing more than 110,000 pounds.
It is oxpected that an expedition
of hardy Norwegians will start for
the North Pole in 1890, by way of
Franz Josef's Land. Dr. Nansen,
tho hold explorer who crossed Greenland's ice fields last summer, will
probably be offered the leadership.
The long snow-shoes so effectively
used in Greenland will doubtless
constitute an important part of the
equipment.
An interesting fact is that one of
the greatest problems now perplexing scientifio men—the production
of hcatless light—lias been already
solved by nature. The light from a
luminous beetle—sufficient for reading a newspaper—is shown by tho
spectroscope to be all of ono kind,
and just the kind for seeing, while
the thermopile finds no evidence of
heat. Yet in nil our artificial lights
vast quantities of fuel are wasted
for useless heat.
Avian Ventriloquism. — A
Canadian ornithologist Mr. E. E.
Thompson, attributes considerable
ventrildquial powdrs to somo birds.
When surprised in the act of singing theso feathered ventriloquists
become silent for a few moments,
and then give forth n faint song,
that seems to come from far away
though the singer may be only a fow
feet distant. 'This curious deception is especially noticeable in sparrows, but has been observed also in
thrushes and robins.
A Russian FmnE.—A now textile has been discovered on tho shores
of the Caspian by M. O. Blnken-
bourg. The plant is known to the
native, as "knaif," and grows to a
height of ten feet, with a diameter
of about a tenth of nn inch. By
careful cultivation and preparation,
a textile matter that is suited for
most ordinary purposes, and would
be particularly desirablo for sacks,
tarpaulin, ropes, etc., is obtuined,
It is lighter, cheaper and much
stronger than hemp. It. is soft,
elastic and silky, and the finer stuffs
made from it can be bleached chemically and dyed any shade of color.
Size of Tornadoes.—Prof. J. P.
Finley, gives the width of the path
of destruction in tornadoes, as determined from the records of 88 years,
at from 10 to 10,560 feet, the average being 1369 feet. The length of
tho tornado-track varies from 300
yards to about 200 miles, tho average
boing 24 79 miles. Tho velocity of
progression of the tornndo-cloud
varies from 7 to 100 miles an hour,
the average being 44.11 miles. Thoso
extremes may often occur in dilibr
ont portions of thu track of a single
tornado. Tho shortest timo occupied by the tornado-cloud in passing
agivenpoint variosfrom "an instant"
to about twenty minutes, the average being 74 seconds,
Tim Blowx-Up Mountain.— The
great earthquake at Ban iluisun,
Japan, was undoubtedly produced
by the sudden explosion of superheated pent-up steam, either alone
or in conjunction with volatile gas-
os. A lato visitor to tho spot, Mr.
V. Hurley, describes the changes
presented ns truly awe inspiring.
Tho wholo sido of a mountain three
miles in circumference had been
completely blown away, and hurled,
us if it had boen the mere outsido of
n house, into tho valley below, completely burying beneath it four villages and their surrounding farms,
along with all their inhabitants.
So stupendous was the forco of tho
explosion that thn more wind-shook
knocked down like nine-pins tho
whole of tho treos growing on tho
opposito mountain-side. A smull
lake has beon formed over onco
cultivated lands by tho damming of
tho rivor in tho valley.

A Daring Escape.
Ben Lundy, the opium and Chinese
smuggler, who has itcheived tho reputation of being the most daring and
successful revenue oyadcr in tbe northwest, escaped from confinement in
Seattle last Friday night, where ho
was awaiting trial, under very peculiar
oircumatancos. Lundy with a large
crowd of fellow prisoners was confined
in an inctoBure, the bssemeat of a
building in Seattle, around which
guards were stationed to prevent tho
prisoners from getting out of durance
vile. Representatives of the ring snd
friends of Lundy engaged the attention
of the keepers Friday evening for a few
minutes during whioh timo a board
was removed and Lundy with another
prisoner mado their escapo. The former repaired to a room near by and
his absence was not discovered until
Saturday noon. Tho previous evening
a l:irgo dry goods box was taken to
Luudy's room and the smuggler was
carefully concealed in it. Tho box
had a lid whioh could be opened from
tho inside by Lundy, and early on
Saturday morning the box was taken
down to the steamer Olympian and
billed through to Victoria as freight.
At Viotoria ho stepped ashore and
saluted Travelling Customs Inspector
Loftus and tendered his regards to the
officers in Port Townsend.
it is learned that Lundy is backed
by a powerful ring in Victoria who
were anxtou£> For his release. Tho escape is the most dnring, probably that
was ever attempted and successfully
carried out on Puget ^ mnd. He wus

Tlio report of tbe annual meeting
of the board of trade, held last night}
including the address of tho  president,   Mr.   John  Hendry, will be
found on another page.    It contains
much  matter of interest   to our
readers generally, but especially   to
those in this city und district.    The
assurances contained in   the   president's address with respect  to  tbe
Southern Railway aro  most   satisfactory, and our  citizens  nro   not
likely to forget the important  part
whioh tbe board of trade have taken
in placing this city iu tho enviable
commeieinl  position which is now
assured to her us compared with tbe
other cities of the province.   Hardly
second in importance to the Southern
Railway is tbe improvement of   tho
navigation of the Fraser, and in this
matter the president's address shows '
that   "very   material   progress has
been made," although "the Dominion
government has not met our   views
in this respect with that promptness
which it seemed to us the   circumstances demanded."   The  channel,
however,   now   shows a depth, at
high spring tides, of 25 feet, and we
trust that the Dominion government
may  so  prosecute  this important
work during tho current year that
the wish of the president, the board
of trade, and all good citizens,   may
be realized, that, before another year
has   passed   "the  river   will have
opened its mouth to the largest craft
in the merchant marine."   As will
be seen, important concessions have
been secured in other  matters  per
taining to the improvement of navigation, and tbe board of trade are
sustaining their excellent record by
taking cognizance of and materially
furthering  every  desirablo undertaking  and   improvement    within
their scope. The financial statement
of the   board shows good management and careful husbanding of  resources,   combined  with an intelligently liberal outlay   in  furthering
the interests of the city and district.
The board of trade will undoubtedly
be able to render much assistance in
the  matter of the Mud Bay and
Fraser River Canal, and   their  cooperation with the Surrey council,in
the  interests  of   that   important
scheme, we are glad to see has been
already pledged.   The matter which
Mr. H. T. Thrift, clerk of tho   municipality of Surrey, brought before
tho   board   of   trade   last night,
with  respect  to the necessity for
fortifications and defense works at
North Bluff, Semiahmoo Bay. calls
for   particular   notice.   It   would
appear   that   this   is    a    strategical point which, undefended, would
leave an open gate inviting the entrance  of  any   would-be  invader.
The board of trade, have decided, on
the strength of Mr.  Thrift's  representations, to memorialize   the Dominion government on the question,
and   we   would   strongly urge the
federal military authorities to treat
the matter with the importance it
deserves.     With   respect  to  tbe
board's  action  on the question of
striking off tho prefix "New" from
the name of the city, we must  dissent   We believe that if the board
were to reconsider this matter  and
take a full vote, their action would
be  reversed  and the elision of the
unnecessary   prefix   recommended.
The eleotion, for tbe ensuing year, of
the officers, council, and  board  of
arbitration,   of  the   board of trade
took place last night,  and   we are
sure that the citizens generally will
ratify the selections made.    In  re-
electing by acclamation, the retiring
president, vice-president, and secretary-treasurer, the board of trade did
one of the best notions of tho   year.
general organization favoring freedom through crime looks when you
examine it at short range. If the
supposed eye-witnes3 of a murder
turns out, upon the stand, to be no
moro than a neighborhood gossip,
with information at second-hand, his
testimony is important, in an unexpected sense. LeCaron's evidence is
the most important yet introduced
in the Parnell investigation. He
was at the heart of the Irish movement, and knew intimately everybody concerned with it for a quarter
of a century. It was his business
to get information. He was constantly on the point of being mado
by thoso at the head of the schemo a
confidant of their secrets. He never
was. Why? Plainly becauso there
was nothing to tell."
Portland, Or,, has not beon satisfied   with   its water supply, which
bas been taken from the Willamette
River, and pumped into  reservoirs
above   the   city.   The  supply was
both   impure  and inadequate, and
the   "wobb-foot" metropolis undertook a schemo, involving an expenditure of 81,500,000, forthe construction of a pipe-line between tho city
nnd  the   Cascade Mountains, thus
securing an abundunt supply of pure
water.     The  proposition   was   to
authorizo  an   issue  of  city water
bonds.   There was a "hitch," however, upou the  point   of   taxation,
and tho Portlanders will have to be
content with   their   "dirty water"
for awhile longer as the "clean" ia
not yet in sight.   The Post-Intelligencer describes the "hitch" and the
way   it   was made to work against
Portland's new water works scheme,
follows:    " Reasonably   enougli
tbe people of the city held that  the
state ought not to tax the means by
which   they   should provide themselves with water; but it was  made
to appear to the 'Granger' legislators
that this was simply a ruse to enable
capital to escape taxation.    A similar  bill  passed the legislature two
years ago, but was defeated by  executive veto; another again  passed
last week   aud was vetoed, and an
effort to pass it over the governor's
protest has ended, as before, in failure.   And the wrath of tbe city is
bitter.   The truth of the whole matter is, that Portland is reaping tbe
fruits of a selfish policy toward  the
country.   The Granger   legislators
have  small   consideration for the
question upon which this water bill
has nominnlly been determined, but
they have long 'had it in' for Portland and have used the water measure   us   a   means   to vent a long-
cherished spite against the city.    If
the result shall be to teach Portland
that her interests aro not tho  only
interests  in   tho country, and that
there are forces in politics and business in tho Northwest equal to   hor
own, the incident will not be without   practical   value,"   Portland iB
said, further, to be in the agonies of
wrath and humiliation over the defeat of the legislative measure upon
whioh the hopes of her people were
especially intent,   In the anxiety cf
our  Portland neighbors to secure a
better water supply, at  great  ex^
pense, than that furnished by tho
Willamette, we may, perhaps, find a
bint to guide us in selecting as the
source of our proposed water works
a mountain lake, in tho first  place,
instead of temporizing with  river
water and pumping apparatus.

Speaking ol the evidence  ol  tho
notorious LcOaron, alias " Dr. Lo-
Oaron," alias "Major LeOaron," alias
"Beach," before the  Parnell   commission,   an  exchange   makes the
following    pertinent   observations:
"It Is the strongest  evidence  confirmatory of the estimation in which
Mr.  Pariwll  is held that this witness,   who knows all that could be
known to his discredit, has nothing
to  tell.   Wc  can see, through his
testimony, with the  utmost clearness, exactly how the Irish   movement  developed.    There   was  organized, for the assistance   of  Ireland, a great association.   Within
it there wero all sorts of groups and
societies, each cherishing  its  own
particular project,  for  whioh the
general leaders could in no way  be
held responsible.   There wero broth
erhoodi, and little knots of men who
looked toward an   armed   rising
againit England, and atill smaller
coteries, like that headed by Bossa,
in' whioh dynamite was the pan-
word,    The organization   was too
large and too loosely connected to he
responsible for these local developments,  or  to  know  much about
them.   They were the favorite projects of rascals like Bossa, of visionaries and of the sort of people  with
whom  a  Man of LeCaron's stamp
and occupation would find himself
at home.   He knows, apparently a
good deal about them; but what he
knows shows how little there was to
know, how absurd the charge of a

NIW WtoMIWmBB. FROM  CHURCH TO DANCE.
low Bfeileau Woman Mingle  Devotion
Wlih Worldly Pleasures.
The last strains of a dying hymn, chanted
n a sort of jerky monotone, had scarcely
ceased vibrating among the ponderous,
rough-hewn, web-covered beams of the Uttle adobe church, when the congregation,
irincipally women, true to a habitual'fail-
ng, began an animated eonversation.writes
a correspondent of the Philadelphia Press
from Grants, N. M. Whether their comments related to any particularly impressive
point of the past service, or were devoted
to conning over interesting bits of domestic
affairs is not known, but It surprises the
stranger, while waiting a few moments at
the entrance of the ohurch watching the
peoplo, to receive pressing invitations to attend a "baile" or Mexican dance,
A ball© is, of course, a most harmless
recreation, but to fly to the opposito extreme, with the lights in the church yet
burning and the priests still shrouded in
sacramental robes, Impressed one as being
ust a trifle sacrilegious.
Women so lately sitting with uncovered
teads in silent devotion now tripped lightly
through the gloomy streets, moving ia and
out between tbe darkened structures, chatting and laughing eaoh wlih the oiher, apparently in tbe very .transports of merriment.
Reaching a long row-roofed, building,
whero a small, dingy window emitted a
llickerlng,.uncertain light, and shrill strains
pf musio floated out Into the night through
an open door, the casual visitor allowed
himself to be hustled rather unceremoniously lato tbe very midst of a Mexican
dance.
Tbe dancing apartment consisted of one
long, narrow ball, along either side of
whlcb, for tbo accommodation of ladles, several rough, wooden benches were strung
out, each set closely against the wall. Upon
those sat women of- all ages, in all imaginable toilettes, with bands crossed demurely
In front of them, but Intent upon watching
tho movements of those upon tho floor.
A number of tallow candles stuck into
wide wooden crosses and suspended at various places from the ceiling Imparted a
dim and almost religious light, that cast a
weird,   peculiar   glow  upon  the dusky
Ecupants of the room. Upon tbe
wall, which bad received a fresh
adornment of whitewash for the occasion, arranged in an odd, fantastic
fashion, were groups of vari-hued muslins and calicoes made up with complicated loops, bows and circles and neatly {
pinned together by means of green cedar
boughs.
These simple green leaves and bright-
colored muslins combined in making a noticeably pleasing effect, and greatly relieved
the dull, dead white of the walls.
To assist tbe passage of sound two soulful musicians woro accorded a seat high
above tbe crowd upon a mammoth dry-goods
box, where they played on a violin and
guitar. However, the dancers were favored
with additional sounds, very hollow, however, tbat issued from the depths of the
resonant dry-goods box* and occasionally
by four well-soled boots keeping up a continual tattoo.
Women of all ages and girls not yet in
their teens eagerly awaita request to be led
out upon the floor, yet upon the face of those
noglected and wbo wait,-unasked, for
hours upon the hard wooden benches, 1
nave never noticed an expression that
would denote envy.       -pm-nim/t
The old crone of fifty accepts an invitation as promptly as tbe blushing young
damsel of sixteen. She perhaps does not
feel tha same thrill of pleasure of ber
younger sister, but she certainly brightens
'upon "dance nights," and goes through
tho regulation moves to tho best of hor
ability, which, considering bar advanced
years, ia very considerable. The principal
charm, if any there be in Mexican dances,
is their simplicity. Bach dancer, from reason of being taught from early childhood,
has all tbe required steps down to a science,
which obviates tbe necessity of any "calling off" or "prompting."
Buch simplicity, however, does not prevail throughout' the entire performance, as
otber very undesirable and highly congruous features strike ope as being extremely vulgar, If not wholly barbarous.
For instance, a male gallant during intervals between seta amused himself, if no

Towns and Village*.    '
Among the oddities of tavern signs In
England those that contain the names of
tne apostles are not uncommon, says the
Detroit Free Press. There aro several
"Luke's" taverns-the district or ward
probably bearing the saintly name. Onco
the writer came across "Peter's Finger,"
the sign-board bearing a figure with pointed
finger, evidently representing the saint fu
discoursing.
In tho line of quaint instances, however,
may be named the following: "Honest
Lawyer" and "Silent Woman," who are
humorously depicted as having attained
ihat state ot perfection or discretion whon
tho head is cut off and carried under tho
arm. "Pig and Whistle," "Cock ond Bot
tie" and "Lamb and Flag" aro somewhat
strange combinations, but "Horso und
Groom," "Fox and Lamb," "Coach ami
Horses," and such like, call for loss com
ment. In London tho "Hole in tho Wall'
probably contains an aperture throtigli
which supper beor Is served to customers
wbo come by a sido entrance. I remember
one hotel which in exterior rhyme gave
"good advice," though scarcely appropriate, and may be deemed savoring of cant,
commencing:
" Let moderation bo your guide,
And never from Its precepts slide,
Whilo another country inn, called "The
Wheel," bus this bidding:
" Stop, friend, stop, 1 make no doubt,
You'll help me turn the wheel about,"
Thero was a tavern in London where if
ope entered and deposited a farthing on
tbe counter without speaking, a glass of ale
would bo served, but whether more than
onco a day, or the origin of the singular
custom, I did not learn.   ,
Somo hostelrics claim in tbo name of the
owning brewer such a distinction as
" Brown's Entire," moaning, I believe, that
its liquors are exclusively supplied by him.'
In tbe Isle of Man was to be seen the following effusion on an inn on a hillside:
" My name Is Abraham Low,
I'm half way up tho hill;
it higher up I go,
That will be better still;
Then come and take a swill,
Take whatever you will,
The pr.'ces l.tte mo are low."
In addition to being a tribute of affection,
the wife of a certain "Landlord of tha
Lion "did a little advertising for herself
(like the widow of tho sculptor who added
a sort of postscript to her perpetuation of
bis memory, viz: " Monuments of this kind,
"BO"), as follows:
" Beneath this stone, fn hopes of Zloa,
Doth lye the Landlord of ths L'on;
(His wife keeps on the business still).
Resigned to tbe Heavenly Will."
There are other businesses or" profes
sions" that have been announced in an ode
way. Over the door of an aspiring chimnej
swoop in Manchester 1 once read:
Joseph Doe, Are extinguisher, he lives here,
Seeks for orders far und near;
With his brush, scraper and machine
He sweeps chimneys very clean."

At tbe completion of each set, the gentle-

woman in a white apron presided, is worthy of noto. The upper surface of the stand
upon which tho delicacies were served
measured about four feet square; directly
In the center stood a dozen or more large
black bottles, tome full, others partially
'filled with liquor. Around tbe bottles, arranged In a eircle, were* a number of
saucers.
Tbo men for the most part took liquor,
but tho women regaled themselves each
time with the contents of a aingte saucer,
and tbe price for the combination ot
liquors, fruit and confections amounted to
the modest sum of twenty-five cents. As
the boars waned, tbe more careful parents
took their children homo, Others left in
small numbers; tbe candles one by one
'fluttered out gradually, darkening the
room, and finally the revelers were followed into the darkness by the two very
much-fatigued musicians.
Unintentional Apostasy* w
An old clergyman used to relate the following anecdote with great glee: Once,
^ when preparing hit parlshionors for the
solemn ordinance of confirmation, be found
among them an old woman so excessively
Ignorant and stupid that, for some weeks
prior to the time, he wu obliged to haveher
come to his house every day In order to instruct and catechise her. At length he begun to hope tbat his time, patience and seal
had not been enterely bestowed in vain, a
fow bright flashes of understanding having
burst from th j old dame's clouded intellect
The important day arrived. "Now, my
good friend," said tbe worthy pastor just
provlous to the commencement of tho ceremony, " as this la the last moment in which
1 shall have an opportunity of conversing
with you, let me ask, do you thoroughly understand and believe all tbe articles of your
Christian faith!" "Aye, yes, sir, thank
'oo," replied the venerable pupil, with a
simper, and dropping one of her beet
courtesies: "I does. Indeed, now; and,

A   PRINCELY  HOST.
The Disinterested Hospitality of Daks
Ludwig ol Bavaria.
One of tho most lovely of Alpine health-
resorts is Bad-Krcuth, a hamlet of some
half-dozen bouses built by tho side of a
spring of mineral water. The charm Otthe
resort is not, however, due to its loveliness,
nor to its healing waters, but to the tact
that Its landlord is Prince Ludwig of Bavaria, a courteous host, who in his manage.
ment of tbe placo combines*alucrative busi-
with a most generous cnanty.
Tbe Princo, the elder son of Duke Maximilian and tho brother of the Empress of
Austria, surrendered i n hia younger brother.
Karl Theodor, all his- rights us the liciid p.'
tho family, because lie winlud io marry a
lady of inferior social position, with whom
he bad fallen in love.
The marriage proved to be a happy one,
and to this day, though more Ukiii thirty
years have passed t%incc tbey were united,
the Prince's manner to his wife is more tha
of a lover than ot a middlc-uRwl- married
man. Tbey liavo no children, unit live for
tbo greater part of tbe year inasimpte suite
of apartments at Bud-Kreutli, where, according to a writer in Lhe Cor-hill Bityazitc,
she diffuses brightness aud happiness
around ber, and be shows taowa Prince may
earn an honest livelihood, aoalbe tho first,
let to reemve, but to render aid.
The whole of the health-resort belongs to
tbe ducal family, Tho servants are theirs,
and the entire management of the place is
under Prince Ludwig's superintendence.
Ho is hts own butcher, brewer, Jniryniun
and baker.
During June, July and August, Krouth is
filled with Southern Germans who pay liberally for their rooms and board, and make
these months ttie Prince's harvest-tune.
During May und September the Prince receives no paying guests, but fills tbo house
wltb those ho calls his "friends." THey
are thoso who arc too proud to ask for charity, but need a little help-officers depending upon their pay, university students,
poor professors, struggling literary men
and artists.
Two or three hundred of theso "friends"
are housed, fed and tended at tho hotel, during May and September, as carefully us thu
wealthiest guests, and that too, without its
costing tbem ono penny. If at the heigh;
of the paying season a room Is left vacant,
some poor invalid is invited to occupy it, and
no one can tell from tbe manner of tho host
or his servants that tho new arrival Is not a
millionaire.
Prince Ludwig nover forgets a face or a
name, and has a pleasant word for every
one, whether a paying guest fir a " friend.'
His manner is Lhe same to all, tbe sympathetic greeting of a courteous host and the
kindly greeting of a well-bred man.

Rudeness In Speech,
Bome pride themselves upon saying rude
things. They fancy tbey have done a smart
thing when tnoy have given a rugged,
coarse rebuff. We have known some
Christian man to be very unchristian In
this particular. All suoh ought to ponder
thii remark, made by ono of tbe greatest of
groat mon: "Sir, a man has no moru right
to say an uncivil thing than to aot ono—no
mure right to say a rude thing-to another
||ia to knock him down."

Georgia MIumIkIi.
Herring's opera house waa well
filled last night with a thoroughly appreciative audience. Tho fame of
Richard & Pringlu's Georgia minstrels
was not over-rated, and a better negro
minstrel entertainment haa not been
given in Westminster. Tho music
was far above thu average and delighted nil. Billy Korsanda wus a decided hit, and his comicalities took the
house by storm, tho rours of laughter
fairly shaking tho building. Tho
Crescent Quartette was really good nnd
it is seldom bettor singing has been
heard on tho Westminstor stage, Tho
beauty of the CJuorgia Minstrels is that
they givo a genuiue negro minstrel
entertainment and not such mixtures
as ma-iy troupes inflict on us. From
beginning to ond tho fun was of the
most innocent character, and the
whole entertainment is one that can
be thoroughly enjoyed by old and
young. The company will play again
to-night, giving au entire change uf

A Terrible Story.
A pitiable story cornea from Victoria,
which, if true, reflects very unfavorably on the (nnnhood nud humanity of
Capt. j. H. Robertson of Moresby
Ialand. Tho atory goo3 that Oapt
Robertson brought a Chinaman and
his wife from China to act aa domeatic
setvants for him, and for their services
he agreed to pay $20 per month for 3
years. For eight mouths they wero in
his employ, but during that time, they
claim, did not receive any portion of
the money due them. The Chinaman
demanded the wages but Mr. Robertson refused to pay, and finally both
man and wifo wero turned out of tho
houao without either food or shelter.
They asked for a boat to take them to
Saanich nnd woro refused so as a last
means they made a raft and launched
thomselvca on tho water, hoping to
mako tho opposite shore. The current
caught thu little raft aud swept it down
l he straits. For two nights and throe
days thoy were toaaed about by tho
wave?, without either food or water,
and when finally rescued by au Indian
they wero in a dying condition. Tho
unfortunates wero taken to Victoria
whero they uro being cared for by
their countrymen.
The Organ Keel tal.
The entertainment which took placo
in St. Andrew's (Presbyterian) church
laat evening was certainly a treat, especially to those of tho audienco gifted
in any degree with musical tastefl.
The Assemblage, probably owing to
counter attractions, was unfortunately
rather Small, but seemingly a very appreciative one, nnd during the performance sat fixed in wrapt attention.
The concert opened shortly aftor 8 o'clock and the following programme
waa successfully carried out; Anthem
—"How Beautiful upon tho Mountains"—Choir. Organ—Silver Trumpets— Miss Peters. Solo-- "Tho Lost

BOARD OF TRADE.
The WrMimlatler Board or Trade Hold
Their Annual Heeling and Heel
Officer*, Af., for 1889.
rrrstdent John lit miry Hellver* an Interesting Address Toaehlng on
Hnity Imporlant .Uallerx.
Tho annual meeting of the Wost-
minster board of trade wus held in the
board room last night There was a
large attendance, considering the counter attractions elsewhere. After the
reading of tlio minutei, the president,
Mr. Jno. Hendry, delivered lhe following address:
I'KESIDENT HENDIIY'.S ADIHIGSS.
Gentlemen!"—At tho close of another
year I have to congratulate yon on the
valuable work done by this Hoard of
Trade, and the substantial results of our
efforts for the promotion of such schemes
as we have taken up in. the publio interest. Tlio year just closed will bo
marked as the most conspicuous in the
Board's history. tt'o have not succeeded
in accomplishing everything that haa
been undertaken, hut our achievements
have been such as to encourage tho hope
that continued efforts, guided by viae
counsels, may bring to a successful issue
many of the ponding queationsln which
the commercial interests and development
of this eity and district are largely involved. One of the first large achitir.es
to which the Board committed itsself was
the Southern Railway, and I am glad to
Bay tllnt this most important work may
now be pronounced almost
AN ACCOMI'USllHD FACT.
A company of our own citizens has taken
the charter over from the Board, agreements have been executed for tho construction and operation of the road, and
a large amount of actual work on the
Hue has been already performed. You
arc aware that satisfactory connections
with American railways on the Pacific
coast and over tho continent have been
secured for thia road, and ita early completion and energetic operation are fully
assured. I need not tell yon how vastly
important are the interests hound iip in
this scheme. It will give the city of
Westminster commercial advantages possessed by no other city in the province;
it will open to ua a great market hitherto
inaccessible for our limitless and unsurpassed timber; it will bring iia within
touch of the great and growing cities to
tho south; it will furnish an alternative
and competing line to the East; and it
will
SUPPLY Till-; MIS8INQ LINK
which shall unite tho railway systems
of the two great nations of North America. Our city will find in thia new commercial avenue the one thing lacking to
make it tho most desirable point for
manufacturing purposes in British Columbia. During the year wo have also
been making supreme efforts to bring the
works at the mouth of the Fraaor River
to such a state of completion as to enable vessels of large draught to reach
this city. The Dominion government has
not met our views in this respect with
that promptness which, it seemed to ub,
the circumstances demanded, but very
material progress has been made. The
channel at tho river mouth now shows a
depth of about 25 feet at high spring
titles, and our citizens have had the
satisfaction already of seeing five seagoing vessels carry away full cargoes of
lumber from our wharves, 1 am hopeful that the government will recognize
the justice, of our repeatedly-expressed
wi-.li to have these worka completed thia
year, and that, before our next annual
council meeting, tho river will have
OPENED IT.S MOUTH
to the largest craft In tho merchant marine. At a conference between the coun.
eil of thia Board and the deputy minister
of marine, hold by appointment in this
room last August, the government was
urgently solicited to provide an official
chart of tho river channel for the guidance of shippers, and to appoint some
person residing near the city whose duty
it would be to look after tho bouys when
required. Theso are two points for which
tho Board has long contended unsuccessfully, but I am happy to say that the
fruits of our untiring efforts arc begiuing
to appear. A letter troin tho deputy-
minister of marine will bo kid before you
at this meeting in which it is stated that
thu Himgboat Samson is to bo charged
with tho cnre of the hotiys and that the
official
CHART  OF THE TlIVEll CllANNLL
ia now nearly completed. Thia is moat
encouraging, if not entirely satisfactory,
aud leads to the anticipation of fuller
concessions during the year to come. The
board has also taken an active part in
endeavoring to secure a daily inall service by atoainor with the Nortii Arm, the
construction of tho Fraser Rlvor and
Mud Bay canal, tho providing of a suitable steamer for keeping the rivor navigable in the event of its becoming obstructed by floating ice, the dredging of
tho harbor in front of the wharves, tho
establishment of a U.S. consular agoncy
at thia city, the obtaining of a federal
subsidy for the Southern Railway, the
improvement of the fishery regulations,
the promotion of fruit-growing in the
province, the establishment of street letter-boxes at this city, and many other
mutters which havo been considered in
tho public interest. The members of the
executive council have been most tintjrinu
in their efforts to promote tho various
schemes brought under their consideration during the year, and the measure of
success with which their efforts havo been
rewarded ought to stimulate their successors to
ADDRESS THEMSELVES HOPEFULLY
to tho work which still remains uncompleted. A statement of the accounts for
tho year will ho laid before you, from
which you will learn that although our
disbursements have amounted to the sum
of ?2,5D2,28. there is still a balance to
our credit of 9425.04, ami our assets show
a balance of 8070.76 over all liabilities.
The work oftho boani has grown to euch
dimensions that the executive wisely do*
tormiiicd to secure a room for its solo
uso, and you aro ablo to judge by actual
observation whether the placo selected is
suitable for the purpose. It was also resolved that council meetings should bo
held regularly every two weeks. I havo
to thank you, gentlemen of the council
and the Board of Trade, for the ablo assistance you havo always given ino in
carrying out the work committed to our
care, and for tho consideration and uniform courtesy with which you have in-
variably treated the chair. Although
tho past year has been one of large
achievements, there is much still remaining to be done; and I counsel you to
relax no effort until the last obstacle
standing tn the way of tho progress of
this city and district bus been swept
uwny before the resistless force of your
intelligent industry,
Atthe conclusion of tho address
thero was vory hearty applause, mid a
motion was passed requesting the secretary to furnish a copy of the address
to the newspapers of this oity and
Vancouver.
A communication was rond from (ho
deputy minister of marino, from which
tho following is an extract: "Referring
to your lettor of the 25th Sopt. last,
addressed to tho minister of marine
and fisheries, in reference to nit matters nfibcting the navigation of Fraser
River boitiH attended to hy aome person resident at New Westminster, aud
suggesting that tho snag-boat Samson
be employed in placing buoys wherever
required, 1 beg to inform you that tho
department of public works has been
pleased to concur in the suggestion
made by thia department that the mus
ter of the Samson should attend to the
replacing of buoys whenever necessary,
under tlio instruction of the resident
engineor, Mr. Gamble, and directions
have been given accordingly. I am
also to inform you with reference to
your statement that a correct chart of
the Fraser was much required, that the
chart is now almost completed."
A communication was received inclosing a resolution from the Surrey council requesting the board of trade to cooperate wfth the council of Surrey for
the purpose of securing tho construction
of the Mud Bay and Frasor River Canal.
A motion was passed endorsing the
scheme.
Mr. H. T. Thrift, clerk of the Surrey council addressed the meeting with
regard to tho necessity for erecting fortifications and defence worka nt North
Bluff, Scmiahmoo Bay, as tho place
was entirely defenceless, easy of approach, aud a strategical point from
which, na a base of operations, the
wholo mainland would bu at the mercy
of un invader. Tho pccretary was instructed topruparou momoriet to the
Dominion gov urn ment, asking to have
the North Bluff surveyed with a viow
to fortifications being erected there.
Mr. Thrift alao addressed the meeting with a view to having the Indian
reserve at Campbell River opened for
settle men t. A committeo was appointed to inquire into the mattter nnd re*
port.
A resolution wns proposed to
recommend to the city counoil the striking of the prefix
"Now" from tho namo of the city,
New Westminster, and after discussion
was lost by a vote of 7 to 0, four members being absent when the question
was discussed and voted on.
Four now members were proposed
and elected to the board.
The election for officers, council,
and board of arbitration, forthe ensuing year, resulted as follows:
Officers—John Hendry, president;
T. J. Trapp, vice-president; D. Robson, secretary-treasurer. The foregoing wero re-elected by acclamation.
Council—W. A. Duncan, E, S.
Scoullar, A. Ewen, H. Elliott, James
Punch, W. Wolfenden, T. Cunningham, aud B. Douglas.
Board of arbitration—W. McColl,

Police Court.
(Before T. 0. Atkinson, P.M.)
Nash, charged with assaulting a boy
named Robert Gunn. Mr. Nash admitted having punished tlie boy for
striking his boh, but eaid he had npolo-
gized to Gunn'a father for the occurence.
Robort Gunn was called to tho witness box.
Mr. A:—"Do you know whnt would
happen n boy if he tells a lie"
Robt:—"He would bo dead"
Mr. A:—"What would happen him
then"
Robt:—"Ho would fall in the big
fire."
The boy then went on to explain
that Georgo Nash struck another boy,
and he (Gunn) hsd stepped in and
thrashed Georgie. Tho reason uuen
for his nctton was that tho boy Nash
struck was smaller than himself. Later
Mr. Nash slapped Robert's face.
Georgie Nash contradicted Gunn's
statement and claimed ho had beon
constantly persecuted by a number of
boys.
Ilia honor said that while ho could
not help thinking that Georgio Nash
had received great provocation, yet
that did not clear the defendant of the
charge of assault, Defendant fined
92 and costs.

guilty to having drank a bottle of gin,
thereby destroying tho rhythm of her
movements on the publio streets. Fined 85 or 10 days.

with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in all matters of public
enterprise, whoso record for unflinching integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, mako thom
objects of special note, not alone iu
their homos, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation ia recognized
and respected, such a man havo wo
in the subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1802 and
has, through all tho vicissitudes of
twenty-seven years' trado, main,
tuined tho even tenor of Iub way.
His transactions hnvo increased
year by year, and the circle of his
customers and patrons gradually
widening and his firm extending until ho now controls a business un
excelled by any similar establishment in British Oolumbia, Hii
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. All this space is filled
with a complete and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crookeryware, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stores, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, house furnishings,
iron pipo and fittings. This house

first-class goods at lowest quotations.
The length of timo this gentleman
has been in business and the success he has attained aro better
recommendations than the loudest
praise wo could possibly give. We
may mention, however, to our readers who 'have not yet become acquainted with this firm, that none
in the Northwest has a better reputation for fair and honorable dealing.
