They are telling this story about
Senator Evarts; A gentleman was
entering the Bonate gallery at Washington, when he chanced to meet a
friend coming out. "Hello I" ho
said, "what is going on 1" "Noth-
ingjust now. Mr. Evarts has been
addressing the senate." "Has he ?
I'm sorry I missed that." "Yes, it
was a groat treat. He spoke for
moro than four hours." "What
about 1"   "He didn't say."
The conventional full dress suits,
and tho long list of presents at
weddings, are passing out of date in
England. At a recent wedding at
Bicester, Oxford, Mr, Martin appeared in full hunting costume, as
did the parliamentary secretary of
thn local government board, and
after tlio ceremony thn whole party
attended to meot tho Lord tihea-
liam's hounds, and cheques took the
placo nf the usual wedding presents.
Asa rule, men ,prefer comedy.
Where ono is found who enjoys a
tragic play, a dozen muy be counted
who find in comedy, eithor in the
form of drama or light opera, their
chief delight. And the older they
grow the more pronounced nre thoir
tustes in this direction. Women
uro somewhat different. Thoy lovo
tlio luxury of tears, and the pathos
or solemnity whoso trend is toward
emotion is always appreciated by
them.—Ex,
"To discontinue an advertisement," says John Wtmamaker,
Philadelphia's great merchant, "is
liko taking down your Bign. If you
want to do business you must let
the public know it Standing advertisements when changed frequently, aro better and cheaper than
reading notices. They look more
substantial and business-like and
inspire confidence. I would as soon
think of doing business without
clerks as without advertising."
A singular incident happened a
fow days ainco in a Scottish town.
Tlie local branch of the Salvation
Army were holding a meeting in
the streot and at the conclusion of
the "captains" address, a constable
walked up, nnd arrested him. A
large and excited crowd followed
the policeman and the prisoner, who
was taken not to the lockup, hut to
the "barracks" of the Army. The
public only found out the trick
perpetrated to gather them in when
hymn after hymn was sung and the
service conducted ns usual. Tho
unwary ones took the medicine
quietly. 	
Music hath charms to soothe the
savage breast. Thoro is no refuting
the truthfulness of this sentiment,
but it is not always put to such
tir-os. They had boen engaged to bo
married for fifteen years, and still
he had not mustered up courngo
enough to ask her to name the
happy day, One evening he called
in a yes darling frame of mind, and
asked her to sing something sweet
and touching, something that would
penetrate to his heart's core. Now
fwns her opportunity, and she availed
herself of it. She sat down to the
piano, and sang "Darling, I am
growing old!" This fetched hiin.
and they were married in as many
days ns the had been courting years.
Says Zion's Herald; Few of
Satan's devices are so seductive as
thoso whicli tempt good men to do
doubtful and evil deeds for pious
ends. The use of grab-bags, raffling
and other modes of gambling at
ohurch fail's, and the getting up of
amateur theatrical performances
und comic concerts as means of
increasing church funds, may be
cited as examples of doing evil that
good may come. Thoy corrupt
young uiimuj by drawing them away
from Uod, and awakening in them a
passion for practices nnd amusements whioh are extinguishers of
piety. When church officers and
representative Oristian men endorse
suoh things, thoy little think thoy
are making themselves bait for
Satan's hooks.

TBK BOOJITI.S EJECTED.
Wichita, Kans., March 18,—The
Boomers were in a state of demoralization yesterday. On Friday liif-lit a
rumor reached Oklahoma city that the
troops were en route from Fort Reno
to drive them out of the country.
They fled in terror into the woods end
bushes, taking with them all their valuables. The soldiers, under command
of Lieut. Carson, arriving at noon yesterday, commenced immediately the
searoh for the boomers, heating tho
brush and scouring the woods. They
soon gathered quite a body, and driving the prisoners before them start ed
for the Kansas line, after burning the
huts and tearing down the tents and
dugouts. No excuse was received.
Every ono that was without a permit
was captured. Capt. Hayes has also
started from the Cherokee strip with
troop K, and intends to carry before
him to the south all boomers he finds.
Many reports are made of severe treatment; but nothing definite regarding
such is known. Serious trouble is
feared, however, before the soldiers'
raid is ended.

IMMIGRATION TO CANADA.
London, Maroh 16.—Enquiries have
been Tnado of the best authorities regarding thu prospects of emigralion.
It is generally agreed that the season
has opened well. The Parisan sailed
on Thursday with 1,000 souls. The
Vancouver, sailing nc:.t Thunday is
fully bouked, and is expected, judging
from the forward bookings already
made, that the emigration of tho first
few weeks of the season will be abnormally largo as compared with the emigration at the beginning of last soaaou
though the whole season .will probably
show a decrease of 15 per cent, compared with 1888. The agents repurt
that they never had a better class of
emigrants.destined for Canada. Sevo-
ty-five per cent, of the Persian's passengers arc young farmers of from 18
to 30. The children's emigration will
be a feature of the season. Every
child undergoes a special mid most
rigid tncdic.il examination. Several
have already been rejected upon
grounds which are taken to show unfitness for Canadian life, though certainly nut euouglt to influence nny life
assurance company. A certificate of
their condition will accompany the
children. Canada's cessation of assisted
free passages are offered to the Argentine Republic. Others believe that
the cessation is leading to a better
class of emigration. The demands
from Canada for farm and other laborers is still, however, brisk. Emigration from the continent will probably
increase somewhat over 1888. Tho
foreigners are hunting chiefly for (ho
Northwest, intending to go dirvut ou.
THE CHURCHES.
WliM Was Mpdhfii ul tame ot Hie Illy
Snactuarlr* 1'c-th-niny.
HOLY TRINITY CHURCH.
At Holy Trinity ohurch last evening the sermon was preached by the
Kev. P. Woods, who announced that
he intended preaching a series uf sermons on thu apostles, beginning with
Judas. The preacher took for his
text John 6th chapter, 70th and 71st
verses; (*Jesus answered them, Have
1 not chosen you twelve, and ono uf
you is a devil. He spake of Judas
Iscanot. tho son of Simon ; for ho it
was that should betray Him, being one
of the twelve." When wo consider
the oharaoter of Judas we should ask
ourselves how we would act under
similar circumstances. We, uo doubt-,
consider him one of the worst scoundrels iu history, and think that under
similar circumstance* we would do
muoh hotter. But beforo coming to
suoh a decision lot us remember the
common snying : "Look at home
first." Judas was a bad character, but
bad men often have redeeming points.
He was bad, for tho bible tells us so.
Of Judas it was said : "Better he had
never been born*" What a lesson
this should be for us ? We are not
so good but that tho samo may be
said regarding us. Look at Judas'
conversion—it was glorious, for ho
gavo up a groat deal to becomo u disciple of Christ. He embraced a life
ofpovorty and chastity. He muat
havo had good points then and it ii a
question if we would do so well, He
gave up all to follow Christ; and iu
that little band there was nothing to
covet; no inducement of earthly gain
was held out to him.    But after ii
timo it became necessary to have a
treasurer, Judas was given the office
and then the tempter camo with great
power. Ah treasurer he was always
with his besetting sin—covetous ness ;
ho became a thief and ho might have
hud an excuse. At the Last Supper
lie was warned, but the siu had got the
better of him. Tho devil had led him
on until Judas was powerless t;.i do
good. Thus in Judas caso were our
Lord's words not true ? How many
warnings did ho havo 'I Did ho not
hear Jesus say no man could serve two
masters; but he tried to do so. Judas
once loved Jesus, and perhaps we, too,
loved Jesus ; do we lovo Him now ?
Judas is a warning to those who como
to receive holy communion. We must
bo very careful thnt we are worthy to
receivo it. Let those communicants
take warning from the end of Judns,
for ho is a warning to ali. -How mnny
follow Josus just becauso it suits them
to do so. People ought to attend their
church regularly. Religious excitement does no good unless tho results
aro permanent. Many como to church
on Sunday und take the holy communion, but when Monday comes it is
forgotten and their lives aro uo better
during tho week than it was beforo.
Lst us thon endeavor to find our
special failing before it is too Into and
try to overcome it. Jf we do nut
master our Bins they will eventually
mnster us and lead us to misery. Tho
Lord hns given us His commandments
and yot we are continually breaking
thom and separating ourselves from
God. Let ua ceaBe to do evil and if
wo do betray our God Ho will forgive
us if wo aro penitent. Then it will
not bo said of us: better wo had
never been bom, but "Behold they
were very good."
METHODIST  CHURCU.
At the Methodist church last evening Rev. J. H. White preached upon
"Profanity," from Matt. B c. 34 v.—
"But I say unto you, swear not at all"
—and spoke substantially as follows:
In discussing any subject it is woll to
understand what we are talking about.
Profanity is making light of holy
things. Blasphemy is speaking ovil
of God, and Ingersoll was a noted example of tho blasphemer. Swearing
is calling God or some spirit to witness
the truth of our statements. Cursing
is calling 011 Gud or somo superior
power to do injury to some euemy,
which we nro not able to inflict ourselves. The Rov, gentlemen gave
illustrations of the common terms used
in cursing, and said that swearing and
cursing had been common in all ages.
Swearing by higher powers had been
the custom among the Jews nud all
nations since thnt time. This mny be
right under somo circumstances, but
as Chrislnina wo havo Christ's command
"Swear not at all." Yet Josus before
the tribunal was nccordod the oath,
nnd if I were culled into court and
handed the book nnd requested to
swear in tho ordinary formula I would
do it; but I would not swear or invoko
God to witness upon my owu responsibility, nnd the soonor Christains get
into the habit of speaking the truth
for truth's Bake the better. Now
mnuifests aro taken to tho custom
home, and the oath administered that
they are correct, and whilo they nt e li lied
in by those required to take the onth
they might be wrong. In lhe polico
court a witness in n drunk or chicken
stealing ease, no matter what his position or how good his character, is
sworn, and this judicial swearing
creates just the opposite to whut is intended, and I believe that if disregard
of tho truth was answered with the
Binyo punishment as perjury under tho
present syaten, it would answer the
purpose for which judicial swearing
was created, Now tho swearing iu of
the president of tho United Staios,
governor-general, lieutenant-governor,
or a judge, may be right, as tho forms
used invoke God's blessing; but tho
habit uf cursing, the nwful execrations
used by the English, Irish and Scotch
as against each othor in times pnst, is
dreadful to contemplate. Think of
tho awful sin of Job when ho cursed
the day when ho was born, that it be
turned into darkness and taken from
tho calendar, To-day the oursing ia
not necessary, but it ia iu general use,
and there are some circles whero if
you do not swear you are looked upon
with distrust, ank every day tho Crea
tor of tho universe is called upon in
common talk upon our streets, nnd it
is terrible to think how far this habit
will reach in its growth. When I was
in Yietoria thero was a man, who finding his seat in church occupied, turn
cu and cursed tho usher, nnd ho should
hnve been sent to tho pnitentiary for
the crime;.in England it jb a misde-
momeanor to curse in a house of worship. But not ouly men, but women,
swear, aud tbey havo thoir little lady
liko oath " by goodnesB" or "by gracious" whatever that may mean; and
the habit will grow into worse expressions. Boys also swear; tho othor day
1 hoard n boy about seven years of ngo
upon a horso on Front atreet throwing out awful oaths, and you fathers
and mothers would bo shocked if you
heard the expressions used in tho piny
ground at school; and from my study
window I havo hoard boys nvrenring
like troopers. It is a common practice
that cannot be defended, aud you who
swear know it is wront*;. Consider
what tho habit indicates; those men
that swear declare their boliuf in ibe
existenco of God. Some Bay the
church is losing its influence and that
the interest in the biblo is going back;
but, swearer, your Bwcarlhg indicates
that you believo in the existence of
God, and that ho hears your, oath,
whether of confirmation or enmity, and
that he has tho power to punish, and
while mnny using these expressions
Bay they don't believe in the existence
of Ood, yet 1 am sure of tho contrary.
Then it implies the cxistanco of tho
soul, the immortal nature, that is going
to survive the body nnd rejoin it in
the resurrection, and live to undorgo
punishment in eternity; nnd when you
men damn your own, or somebody
else's soul, da you stop to think that
there is a placo whore tho soul of the
unrepentant sinner will be suffering
for ever: it iB so nnd it is implied
under your curses. Then your oaths
imply that the body can bo cursed as
well ns the soul, and in cursing the
oyes nnd hand and heart you mean
something worse than the simple cursing, nnd in cursing the eyes condemn
them for ever, throughout eternity, to,
look upon, and tho hands to commit,
horriblo crimes. Oh, I wish you
would think of this and that it would
Induce you to stop swearing, Then
some results are formed in the deadening of tho finer sensibilities of the
soul,   Tbe gentleman and tho lady
cannot be found in the person of
swearers; it is tho lowest dopth of
vulgarity, and does the presence of a
lady or minister make the sin of swearing any worse ? It is roluted that an
oflicer in tho presence of General Grant
and somo others, wished to tell n story
unci aaked if there were any ladies
present, when General Grant said
"No, hut there somo gentlemen present," and the oflicer did not tell his
story. Then it destroys the moral
faculties and does away wilh reverence
for God and tho truith, and 1 wuuld
have doubts ubout a man that bwears
to|impress tho truth of his statment, nnd
moreover, the sin of cursing is not
found alono, but often goes with tho
liar, thief, adulterer, and murderer,
and it makes nn nwful difference to n
man that wants to como to tlie cross of
Christ. It has deadened his reverence
for God, and if lie does ropent the
habit, iu moments of impulse, rises
and scourges the soul, and at doath
even, may be a torment to him. Then
the end is denth ; thore is no exeuse.
What has God or Christ dono that you
should tako Their namo in vain? I
entreat you, in God's name, to quit
tho habit, uud nsk forgivenesss, and bn
sure of this, that if yunt continue the
practice through life, it will crush
your bouI at Inst. Take the' advice
that Christ gives, "Swear not at all,"
and in conclusion the rev. gentleman
pleaded earnestly fur a discontinuance
of tho practice, concluding 0110 of his
most earnest and practical efforts mado
in tho church.
Tho choir tendered the anthem
"God is the refuge uf Jus people"'with
marked earnestness, the time being
well kept nud the various parts ably
sustained.

At eight o'clock last evening a

family heard tlio noise and Dr. J. D.
Helmcken, who wus in Ins father's

time to see tho Chinaman, who probably beta mo alarmed at the footsteps,
disappear through the window. The
y- ung doctor gavo chase, but the streets
being crowded he loat a it-lit of tho mail.
The Celestial left behind a hatchet aud

his trouble, boing disturbed oarly in his

to prevent the escape. Tho Chinaman
covered him with a full cocked revolver. Tho revolver, a heavy forty-
fivo calibre "British Bull dog" pattern,
full loaded, und n sharp hatchet, were
found in the grounds.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Tiic Bridge Question.
Euitoii Columbian, —To many of your
readers the position taken by tho Koss-
McLarou Sawmill Co., through their
agent here, will bo a genuine- surprise,
Surely it cannot bu contended that a
properly constructed giving bridgo constitutes a serious obstacle to shipping.
The International Bridge across tho Niagara river at Bullalo is a caso in point.
Tho current at tho bridgo runs at tha
rate of from sovon to eight miles an hour.
Two miles above, where the river issues
from Luke Kric, it is much more rapid,
and yet vessels aro constantly passing to
and from tho large sawmills and lumber
yards at Touawanda, N.Y. It would bo
no cxagge.utiou to say that more vessels
pass the liridgo in any month during tlie
season of navigation than are likely to
como up tho Fraser in the next three
years. On any suinmer day, tows, consisting of from one to four vessels, may ho
seen passing through the bridgo, and I
believe an accident has never taken place.
Not only vessels but largo rafts of logs
arc constantly passing tho bridge, going
down the river to tho milla. Of courso
care is exercised* and iu the caso of long
towa the bridge tug is on hand to guard
against accident. Nor docs tlio objection
that tlie bridgo would causo ico jams
seem to be well founded. With properly
constructed piers the lnidgo would break
all tho ice and ao help to keep tho river
open, and in any case navigation would
only bo hindered for two or three weeks,
which, hy tho wny, sometimes occurs
now. If sawmill companlfja find it impossible t6 cany 011 their*bu8inesa except
on waters free from sueh obstruction,
they will soon bo shut out from thn navigable rivers of tho world, Should tho
company"reprcsentcd by Mr. Higgins decide not to erect their mills on tho sito
chosen it would excite general regret;
but ono thing is certain, if tho dny should
ever como when tho citizens of Westminster havo to givo up either tho bridgo or
the mill they will not bo long in making
their choice.       WESTMiNSTF.n Fiusr.

A suggestion has been thrown out,

flowers spread thoir perfume, and (ret
up a pleasant picnic on a Urge scale,

this purpose a small steamer could be
churterod to take tho picnickers to

M-milay Evening, March IS, I8KH.
Interest in the Inidgo question is
not likely lo ahafco, and, as wo anticipated, public sentiment is undoubtedly strongly opposed lo any
proposition looking to tlio construction of the Southern Railway nnd
traffic bridge at any other point than
whero it naturally belongs, nnd that
is as near the centre of tins city as
possible, Wo publish another enm-
municntion on thu aubjoufc lo day,
which will repay wading, us direoted
against thn objections that have
been urged by Mr. Higgins, on behalf of the mill company, against tho
location of the bridgo below the sito
oftho proposed mills. A correspondent onSaturday stated that chero was
a suspicion that the objections to the
bridge as affecting shipping hnd been
somewhat exaggerated, and the communication published to day would
convey the samo impression. We
must admit that we nre of that
opinion ourselves, and wo are glad
to see the public interest that is
being manifested in tho question.
nearly §00,000, and of this §48,000
will be awarded for livo stock. How
fully the best stock of every kind
will be represented may bo judged
from the fnct that n full list of prizes
will bo given for not merely the
well-known broods of cattle, but the
Welsh, Red Polls, Kerry and Dexter Kerry cattle, and for no fewer
than twenty breeds of sheep. Com
petitions in dairying will take place,
while appliances and designs most
needed to fill pressing demands will
receive due recognition in tho
awards. Canadians interested in
agriculture who intend to visit
Britain during tho coming season,
will do well, if possible, to time their
visit so as to be present at the exhibition. Thoy will find the occasion one of muoh interest and profit.
The result of tho public meeting
on Saturday night, at tho Hyack
Hall, was just what was oxpectod,
A practical unanimous protest was
made against the passage of tho bill
to incorporate tho Burnaby Lako
Improvement Company, and a resolution embodying the public sentiment passed accordingly, and forwarded to-dny to tho legislative assembly and to the city and district
members. The meeting was well
attended by our most representative citizens, and the interest
taken and tho expressions of both
resolutions and remarks us made nt
tho meeting, ami reported in to-day's
Columbia:*:, show unmistakably that
thero is a public spirit among our
citizens that may bo depended on
for any emergency, Como what
may, we are justified in concluding
that it will not bo necessary to employ detective;;, ns mentioned by Mt*.
Cunningham, but thnt the city's interests are safe with her loyal and
alert citizen'*. Anyhow, n corps of
detectives would require watching,
especially with respect to the estimate which they would be likely to
place upon the value of their services, and tlie voluntary and patriotic oversight of every citizen is tho
best safeguard of the public interests. With respect to the scheme
contemplated by the bill, no ono
could maintain that it was not, by
itself, a perfectly legitimate enterprise, provided it was properly carried out in all its details, and did
not damage either private or public
interests. But here was the rub,
and it would appear that the promoters were blameworthy in endeavoring to get their bill through
the house with leas than the usual
publicity, owing, prodably, to a suspicion that the undertaking would
be considered to conflict with both
private and public interests. Our
readers know that it has been sn
found to conflict, and both private and publio protests havo been
forwarded to the house, which can
not very well bo disregarded. As
tho promoters of tho scheme, so far
ns has boen made public, are principally our own citizens, they will
probably acquiesce cheerfully in tho
publio wish,, their common interest
in th*> public welfare being, we suppose, equal to that of thoir fellow
citizens. The lakes in question, wo
hope, may never be alienated for
private gain, but we would suggest
that thoy le, in some manner, vested
in trustees, to lie held for the public
uso aud enjoyment,
The exhibition to bo held in London, Eng., on the 'J-ltli of Juno nnd
tho five following days to   celebrate
the fiftieth anniversary of the Itoyal
Agricultural   -Society   of   England,
says   an   exchange, promises to be,
porhaps, the most remarkable  agricultural show of tho century.   Tho
society has everything  in   its favor
for making the occasion a remarkable one. Britain is emphatically tbo
country  of   high  farming, of  soil
management  and   cattle  breeding
condu.ted with all the   advantages
wealth   and science, well directed,
can afford.   The society's membership   embraces   very   mnny of  the
foremost  breeders   und farmers in
England, nnd has for   its president
her majesty the. queen, who (ills tho
position, not on account of her distinguished rank so much ns becauso
of her uctive interest in agriculture
and especially in cattle raising, her
herd being one of the bost in Britain.
The auspices of the June exhibition
are therefore of the best,  and  tho
event will be certain to attract many
visitors from all parts of the empire.
The exhibition is intended to bo "as
completely representativeaB possible
of every branch of  agriculturo,  as
practised in Britain," and prizes will
be given  not only for every established   British  breed of livo stock,
but also for agricultural implements,
grain, wool,.poultry, butter, cheese,
hops, cider, perry, jams, dried  and
preserved  fruits  and   agricultural
produce of other descriptions.   The

Says America: "Tho Weldon extradition bill, which has beon introduced in tho Canadian parliament
for tho purpose of stopping tho
emigration of fugitives to that country, is a rare example of common
sense and wise statesmanship. Tho
bill proposes to givo up freely all
foreign criminals, except thoso
charged with political offenses, who
shnll hereafter seek refuge thoro,and
nlso to permit the extradition of
fugitives who have gone to Canada
in tlie past. Ah the author of ihe
bill declares, the sight of fugitive,
from justice living at case on stolen
money cannot fail to be demoralizing
to the young men of Canada. ' Their
success here,'he snys, 'and their immunity from punishment are a
temptation to men ln this country
to f -How in their* footsteps.' As
tho government has given the bill
its approval, there is good reason to
hopo that ib will become a law. Such
a measure would go fur toward making embezzlements and other commercial crimes in America much loss
frequent than they nre at present."
The fact that congress has refused
to sanction an effective und sufficiently comprehensive extradition
treaty with Great Britain and
Canada tells all the more strongly
in favor of tho good sense and judgment of Canadian statesmen in initiating legislation to enable Canada
to hand over to justice tho boodlers
and scoundrels of tho United States
who seek an asylum on tbe Canadian side of the international boundary. This bill, if passed at Ottawa,
as it undoubtedly will be, will rout
a most objectionable class of American refugees and criminals from their
present Bafo retreat, put a stop to
that .sort of "immigration" in the
future, nnd forever cut the ground
from beneath the feot of those American tire-eaters who have delighted
in hurling the unjust and insulting
repionch that CamUlinns were only
too glad to furnish an asylum for
well loaded boodlers from tho American side, for tho sake of tlio ill-
gotten wealth thus put in circulation iu Canada, Tho fact is that
tho "crooked" obstinacy of United
States politicians in refusing to
sanction a righteous extradition arrangement, involving the giving up
of American criminals to the outraged justice of other countries, has
made it impossible for Canada,
without the independent action now
proposed, to rid her borders of the
Yankee scalawags. Instead of reproaching Canada, our American
cousins will do well now to take a
leaf from her book iu matters pertaining to international comity nnd
uprightness,

their homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation ia recognized
and respected, sueh a man have we
in the subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in IS62 and
has, through nil the vicissitudes of
twenty seven years* trade, maintained the even tenor of his way.
His transaction*- have increased
year oy year, and tlm oi rule of bis
customer*! and patrons gradually
widening and his firm extending until ho now controls a business un
excelled by any similar establishment in British Columbia, His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. All this space is filled
with it complete and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockery ware, wait-paper- wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, house furnishings,
iron pipo and lilting*:. This house
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds nnd does every variety of
sheet-iron cornice work, gas-6ttings,
plumbing, tooling, etc. Thero is no
house in the trade which carries n
more complete stock or wiiusu facilities surpass those of this establishment for supplying the trade with
first-class goods at lowest quotations.

Confidence Men and Some of Their
Most Popular Tricks.
Itnmi iilhOf-iicuH of a Detective—Bow Wcll-
'Orosied Youn_ Men Impose on Uii-'us-
poctlng Visitors — A Mltilstor
Clevorly Vlctluii-t-cd.
" It's hard to understand," said Detectivo
Huff to a Washington Star roporter, " how
ao many smart persons hand ovor their
money to coulldouoo wen. But thon tbo
conUdonco mon aro protty smart."
"How do they lnanugo to succeed so
often i" naked tho reporter,
"Thoy do It vory easily," roplied tho do*
toctlvo. "Thoy first maltoup a directory
of iho principal cities and towns lu tho coun
■try'. Tliia directory contains tho names of
a lumber of tho most prominent businoss
men of cadi town, and also a fow well-
known characters about tho town. Thon,
whon thoy catch a victim and learn where
lio is from, thoy rotor to tho directory.
When tho confidence man tnontlonn a fow
names tho stranger thinks lio surely inUBt
havo como from his town. They ditto frequent hotels and look over the registers,
picking out names. Thoy thon search thoir
own register, and, if successful in meeting
a victim, they aro ready lo con verso with
hlm and malm hhu believo that they arc
from his home.
"Only n fow weeks ago," continued the
detective, "a confidence man successfully
playod his game un tho pastor of a rotiglous
congregation not far from the Capitol. Ho
called on the rovorond gentleman ono morning aud introduced himself as a wealthy
morchnnt from tho Soutli. Ho said that ho
was hero or. business, nnd that boforo returning homo ho wanted to get married.
Ho was a stranger bore and thought that
tho pastor would Introduce him to some
good young lady who" would mako1 bim a
suitablo wifo, and of courso ho was confident that nono but n perfect lady would bo
Bolcctcd. Ho promised to pay the minister
two hundred dollars for his services if ho
cuccoedod. Tho pastor was impressed with
the sincerity of his visitor, who not many
hours afterward was introduced to a hond-
somo young woman. Whether the pastor
oxpluincd matters to tho youug lady or not
is not known. Her mothor consented to
board tho young man, and for two weeks ho
spent a pleasant timo visiting tho young
lady and tho pastor. Of courso bo was a
pleasant talker, thoy always arc, and could
entertain n wholo party any ovening. Aftor
boarding at tho houso for a fortnight ho
found it necessnry to visit Norfolk for tho
purpose of settling up somo business mutters, and he loft to bo absent only a day or
two. Ho was in tho pa3tor'3 company during tho day, and iu tho aftornoon tho latter
accompanied him to tho steamboat wharf.
On tho way tho young man explained his
business, and said ho would marry tho
youug lady upon Lis return to tho city.
Ho was woll satisfied with his courtship and was roady to sottlo up. It was
aftor banking hours, so ho mado out a
chock for two hundred dollars and handed it ovor. There was a crowd on tho
wharf, and foi* fear thioves wore among
thom, the young man did not caro to tako
his roll of bills from bis pocket, because
swine dishonest person might nol ico him and
give him trouble after bo had loft tho boat.
He thereupon requested tho loau of ten dollars, which was readily granted, and a ton
dollar note was handed ovor. W hllo on tho
boat between hero and Alexandria tho confidence man addressed to tbo pastor u postal, and tolling tho latter to take care of his
■darling Carrie' until bo returned. Tho
next morning tlio postal card was received,
and no attention was paid to it until tho
chock was presented at tho bank and found
to bo worthless."
111 suppose you arrested tho confidonco
man?" said tho roporter.
" No, I did not urrost hlm," said tho detectivo. "Ho probably wont to Norfolk by
tho boat, but tho next morning tho reverend gonllomnti called at my house. Ho was
terribly oxcited, mid wa3 anxious to follow
the man to Norfolk, but, of courso, that
would hnvo boon useless." '
" About throo yoars ago," said tho oftlcor,
" a smart confidonco gamo was worked In
this city on a wealthy citi7.cn of Ashtabula,
O. Ho was sitting in tho depot waiting to
tako tho train for his homo, aftor bavin g
sottlcd up somo business ln tho South, when
a neatly-dressed young man appeared and
Introduced himself. After convorsing some
minutes, tho confidonco man was pleased to
learn thut tboy wero from tho somo town
and both woro going homo on tho same
train. Tho gentleman was travoling alone.
but tho wife and sister of hia new acquaintance wore at a hotel, Tlio latter thought it
would mako tho journey pleasant for tha
citizen of Ashtabula to travel with his fuml:
ly, mid tho latter kindly accepted the offer.
Thoy started for tho hotel, whoro tho introduction was to bo given. Ou tho way to tin;
hotel tho young man explained to his newly,
mado friend that ho had mado somo purchases, and thut tlio goods and bill would bo
sont to tho depot. 'Hore ho fs now,' said
tho young mnn, pointing out nn old man ap.
proachlng with a bill iu his baud. Tho bill
was for £313, nnd tho young man handed ovor
n chock for SWO, which tho old man could
not change. Tho banks woro closed, and
tho supposed merchant suggested that his
friend, the Ohio man, might loan him tho
money until bo could got tho check cashed.
Tho young man then requested a loan, saying his wifo had his money iu tho hotel. The
Dblo man took tho money from his pocket
and loaned the young man nati, with which
be paid tbo bill, and then started toward tbe
hotel to refund the money and give the in.
traduction. The merchant here remarked
that bo had soon tho young man's wifo and
sister in the depot. Tho merchant then told
tho young mau that ho was too careless In
- transacting business, for ho bad not asked
for a rocolpt, Thon tho young man do*
scribed the ladies to tho Ohio man, and told
him If bo would goto tho depot and wait
with thom that ho would bo thero as soon as
ho got tho receipt. Uo wont to tho depot,
as told, but failed to find the ladles. Ho
called upon tho ticket agent to learn whether
any tickets had boon sold to Ashtabula, and
learned that there had uot. Ho explained
his transaction to tho agent, nnd the latter
advised blm to go to tho polico, fie camo to
headquarters and reported the caso. Wo
t-oon found both Iho young man nnd the
merchant on a train ready to leavo tho city.
Thoy woro provontcd from leaving, and
woro taken iron,} tho train ns it steamed
out of tho depot, und a short timo afterward
thoy woro on tho samo train going to Al-
bnny." 	
Thirty Yearn Dp ii Tree.
Visitors te Fontaluobleau may have
chanced upon an ancient who wont by tho
name of '-Nazareth" nnd was surnamed
"Tho Man of tho Woods." When tho em*
piro wus in its zenith this strange character,
retiring hermlUike, from tho busy haunts
of mon, mado for htmsplf a habitation In the
thickest partof the renowned forest. Ho
dwelt among tho bruuelies of four trees,
which be had linked together with clamps
pr iron, and tho primitive dwelling whleh
ho hnd thus constructed In mid-air was only
to bo reached byaladdorrcserved Jealouely
for hin sole use aud behoof. Bo, for nearly
thirty years, did old " Nazareth" laid a tranquil and contemplative osistetico, varied
only by- the visits of str-angorn curious to
gazo upon an iiullvidu.il who bad become a
veritable institution.' Habited In the simplest and most primitive attire, his long
white looks streaming lu tho wind, "Tho
Man ef tho Woods" lookod liko another

GLOVES AND  KNUCKLES.
Dlfferc-iieo   Between Fighting with   Finis
und with Mittens.
Tho exact difference botween what is
called a glovo fight and o fight with knuckles, or, as it In elegantly termed, with •■ tin.
raw uiib," ia not aa widely known us it c*..
tainly ought to bo, considering thopresci,.
apparent "popularity" of scientific fisticuff. What, then, Is the difference between
the two modes! Let us soo.
The first rulo which governs tho pW;***
rlng, saya the London Sunday Times, is tlmt
the battle shall bo fought upon a bit of
turf. By the consent of the high contracting partios tho ropes and stakes, forming a
square- oi twenty-four feet, might bo allowed
to enclose eo much sand matting, mattress,
fjttwdusted, doal floor, or feather bed, but tho
rule saya, curtly, turf. Tlie scratch is u
murk in the center of tho ring. " Each man
shall bo attended by a second and a boM lo
holder." Tossing- for corners (tho man who
has his antagonist placed down hill with t lie
sun in his eyes has an advantage to dart
with j, providing euch fighter " with a h.'.iid-
ItevL-iucf of a color suitable to his own
fancy," tbo final disposal of those trophies,
the appointment of umpires and referee
need not bo dwelt upon.
The :iQcond;> aro to seo that tho men carry
no improper substance in tholr .scant cdn-
tfuuatioris, nnd to take caro that tho boots
worn by tho gladiators contain, uo morn
tban the regulation number of opilcea -
namely, two In tho broadest part ,'■ the nolo
and ouo m the heel. Then, principals and
seconds having shukou "hands across" ht
Uir. center of tho ring, tho squlrcn are [o
withdraw and suffer the battlo to proceed.
It Is the duty of the seconds to remove their
men whon ono or both fall to tholr respective
corner**, and "afford them tho ueccssm-y
assistance*," until, at the expiration of thirty
seconds, the umplro cries " Timo!" There-
upon each mau must leave the kuoe of his
bottle-holder unaided and walk to. his own
side of tho scratch, Tho rule as to foul
blows, gotting down without being hit, butting, und so forth, aro generally known,
but thero Ib ouo solemn injunction wiiich is
not, nnd as it was evidently tho suggestion
of a dry humorist, I quoto it: "Tho seconds," oto., "shall refrain from all offensive
and irritatjug expressions, in all respects
conducting themselves with order and decorum, and eonflno thomsolvos to tho diligent and careful discharge of their duties t«
tho principals 1" Tho comments of om
Baldock on this admonition would bo edify
ing: "Tho uso of bard substances, bucIi a.
stones, or sticks, or of rosin (sic) shall bt.
deemed foul!" So runs tho law; but while
the lottor of it is obeyed its spirit is disregarded. A pockotful of powdered resin is
part of tho equipment of a Becond, who now
and then dUBts his principal's hands with
the stuff. It may bo mentioned in passing
that somo dnys boforo tho day of battle thu
hands of tho bruisers are soaked in n pickle
for the purposo of making thom hard. So
much for knuckles; now for gloves.
Under Lord Queensborry's rules competitors ure to box in a twenty-four-foot ring in
light boots und shoes without spikes, or in
socks, with knickerbockers, breeclicH or
trousers, and to wear jerseys. The number
of rounds shall ho three; tho duru.'ou of
tho flrst two rounds shall bo respectively
threo minutes, and tho third four miuutes,
tho intervul botween each round one minute. Tho spirit of fair play dominates these
regulations. Note, for example, these:
"Tho reforeo shall havo power to stop tho
contest In cithor tho second or third round
Inthoovontof Its being very ouo-Bidcd,"
and ho may "disqualify a competitor who Is
boxing unfairly by flicking or hitting with
tbo open glovo, or by hitting with the inside
or butt of tho hand, tho wrist, or elbow, or
by wrestling or roughing at tho ropes." In
glovo contests for endurance, in point of
fact glovo fights, wo havo the liodro-jt approach to tho sovorlty of knuckle fill's.
Tho rounds aro of threo minutes'duration,
aad ouo minute time. No wrestling or hugging allowed. The men fight to u finish,
that is, until ouo is "knocked out."

Twelve Set* of Twins.
Somo years ago n storekeeper in Weeds-

store. A largo wagon drawn by a hoi _p
and an ox had hotted thorp, and plustored
Ktio'ut tho vehlclo wore' twenty-four ohll-
drai-ull boys, In tho wagon wns tho mother, and by the animals stood tho father,
who explained to tho astonishod storekeeper that tboy were on their wny from
Connecticut to Indiana, and were having a
family moving. "Is this your family!"
asked tho merchant. " Yob," answered tho
man; "twenty-four boys, twelve sets of
twins, and wo havo no children dead. At
night what cau't got into tho wagon bunk
under It ou thu ground. Wo aro all here,

tho sight that hu formed tho boysinto, line
and presented each with a straw hat.

It is with pleasure we announco
that Mr. Frank J. Richard?, jr., i.j
Victoria, and Mr. W. 0. Haywood, of
Vancuuver, have decided to open n
roal estate exchange in Westminster.
Tho firm will bo known as Richards,
Haywood & Co., nnd will do business
iu the Culonial Block whoro line
offices will be furnished iu the store
lately occupied by Walker and Shadwell. Mr. Richards is well and favorably known in this city r.nd Victoria.
In tho latter city ho has nn oflice which
does the largest real estate busbies- in
tho capital. Mr. Haywood is a member of the tirm of Haywood & Black,
Vancouver, and has had great experience in the real estate line. Both
gentlemen come with splendid business connections, nnd the city will
benefit greatly from their woll known
push, tact und enterprise, Westminster requires foreign capital, and
tho new firm nro just tbo people to attract it hero. With oflices iu Vancouver and Victoria, Richards, Haywood & Co. will bo in n baiter position
to deal with Westminster property
than any other real estate firm in the
province. Tho new firm will be open
for business in about 10 day.*.
The At:'Miction ('use.
At tho police court this morning a
large number of curious people gathered to watch tbo uutcumo uf tho case
against W, M, Hart of Whatcom,
charged with tho abduction uf Nellie
Gallagher. When ordor was called in
stentorian tones by Constable Smith,
the counsel for the defeuce, Mr. Eckstein, announced himself ready to pro*
coed with the case. The counsel fur
the prosecution failed to make appearance, and Mr. Eckstein asked that the
case be dismissed, which was accordingly dono and the disappointed audience
quickly left tho room. Last evening
Mrs. Hart, wife of the defendant, and
Mr. Wisenburger, an attorney, arrived
frum Whatcom and were prepared to
give evidence in the case. Mrs. Hurt
was prepared to swear that Hart
brought Nellie to Westminster-at her
(Mrs. Hart's) request, and on the advice of the attorney that Buch
action was not nn illegal proceeding.
Tho attorney was present to verify the
latter statement and explain tbo law,
if necessary. The reason fur tho withdrawal of the prosecution from the
use was that there no legal grounds to
make a stand on. It is probable moro
of this matter will bo beard frum when
tho interested parties return to Whatcom.
A i;ii Blow.
Tho storm which prevailed for a
couplo of hours yesterday afternoon
was tbo worst tint has visited Westminster for nearly a year. The wind
blow fiercely and tho rain fell in torrents, most effectually washing the
streets and cleaning out (ho ditches.
No damage of sny kind resulted from
tho storm, and, on the whole, it did
much good. Fur a timo thu surface
of tho river was rather lumpy and
tho whitccapB rolled after each othor
in rapid succession. While the water
was roughest and thu wind highest, a
foolhardy Indian shoved off from the
head uf Lulu Island to mako his .way
up tu tho Indian camp near thu woolen
mills. His canuu was a small oue, and
to the spectators from tho shore who
watched bis movements with much interest, it seemed ns if the reckless
Siwash would get a ducking before
land was reached. Time and again
tho frail craft was swept broadside" to
the wind, and it seemed certain to
capsize ; but the Indian had a strong
nrm and each timo brought ihu bead
of the canoo round so as to meet lhe
next wave fairly Several times tho
man nnd oatloe were hidden from sight
by the waves and the spectators
thought they had gone down, but a
moment later the Siwash wuuld "bob
up serenely" and allow his audience to
breathe freely. After an exciting
battle with tho wind nnd wave-, the
Siwash triumphantly made land in
safety, but drenched to the skin. A
number of small boats broke louse
from their moorings, but were recaptured without trouble.

Orderly "IceOu-*;.
A goodly number uf representative
citizens assembled at tbe Hyack Hall
ou Saturday night to consider tlie ad-
visibility of protesting against the
passngo of tho private bill now before
the local legislature lo incorporate the
Burnaby Lake Improvement Oompany,
with power to drain Burnaby Lake,
etc. Shortly after 8 o'clock Acting
Mayor Curtis called the meeting to
order, read Iho requisition and the
mayor's authority calling the meeting
und declared the mooting open.
On motion, Acting Mayor Curtis
was confirmed in the chair, unci Oil.
McGregor appointed secretary.
Mr. T. C. Higginson Buggestad that
the chairman should give his views on
the matter.
Mr. Curtis—"1 prefer us acting
mayor nob to take the initiative. It
is a matter for tlie citizens. The couucil will deal with it later on probably.
Mr. J. C. Armstrong took the flour
and said ho believed a resolution would
be laid before tho meeting. As ho
understood the Burnaby Lake Impro-
meut scheme, it wm intended to drain
tho lake out of existence. Instead of
the Burnaby Lake Improvement Co.,
it should be callod the Burnaby Lake
Destruction Company. (Applause
and laughter.) The company had not
complied with the regulatiuns in the
first place with respect to advertising
thoir application iu the local papers,
and the bill Ind been got into the
houso by a susponsion of tho rules. If
the lake was fixed up properly it would
be Invaluable as a ploasure resort in
summer and winter. If this oompany
got hold of it, the only benefit to the
city wuuld bo a few Chinese vegetable
gardens. When this town was laid
uut thirty years ego by Col. Moody, a
boulevard was planned all round the
lake, and an avenue laid out from this
city. It was intended to be tho great
pleasure resort for the city, and that
is what it should be made, instead of a
Chinese cabbage garden. If wo wore
starving for vegetables it would bo a
different thing, and even then there
was lots of land to bo reclaimed without destroying. Burnaby Lake. Ho
had heard of ull sorts of steals, but
never beforo heard of an attempt in
British Columbia to steal u like.
(Laughter nnd applause.)
Mr. Jus. Cunningham said he had
signed the requisition because he considered thia was a very important mat-
tor. There was such a thing as taking
a step in tho right direction; he believed tho proposition to drain Burnaby
Lake was must emphatically a step in
tho wrong direction. Uo was not a
property owner at Burnaby Lake, but
lie wan a citizen of Now Westminster,
and as such protested against tho bill.
Ho believed that the lake was tho
natursl plensuro resort for tho poople
of this city mid thnt it should not bo
interfered with. (Applause.) He believed thoro weru plenty of places
where lhe promoters of tho schemo
oi-uld exercise their privilege of reclaiming land. It was a well-known
faet that whon such bills wero brought
into tbo houae somo corresponding
benefit must bo shown; but tbo injury
would be groat and public nnd the
benefit merely private, As a citizen
of Wis1 minster lie simply stood there
and pru tested against this thing; it
was, In! thought, a high-handed pio*
ceeding. A person must keep his
eyes and ours open these times to seo
that the city's interest were not sacrificed. Someone had said' that tho
city should employ n corps of detectives to louk after our intoreets
(laughter), and ho belioved it was almost necessary. He would move tho
following resolution, which he heartily
endorsed:
Moved by J. Cunningham, seconded
by,I. G. Jaques, Whereas Jamos A,
Laidlaw, Temple F. Sinclair and Thomas
J. Trapp have petitioned the legislature
of the province of British Columbia for
an act to empower them to drain Burnaby
Lake and the small lake connected therewith and to open, deepen, alter, and
change the courso of the Brunette river;
And whereas the object of the said
work is for the piivate benefit of tho
petitioners nnd uot for tho advantage of
tbo owners of tho lands adjoining said
lakes', nor to tbo interest of tho public at
large, but on the contrary the granting
of the prayer of said petitioners would be
a great detriment to the residents of tho
citj and district of New Westminster and
also of tlio city of Vancouver;
And whereas the said lakes are tho
only bodies of freah water of any extent,
lying to the south of Burrard Inlet and
to the west of 1'itt River in this district,
the larger uf said lakes being a lino sheet
of water, over two miles in length uud
about one-half mile in width, and will In
tho near future become a valuable and
attractive pleasure resort in allsensons of
the yenr. Already in the winter it i-t the
favorite place for skating and other winter amusements, and, owing to its being
the resort of both large nnd small gntncj
affords considerable entertainment for
the sportsman, And, moreover, a
schemo is on foot for stocking those lakes
with suitable fish from the eastern provinces, and further, as soon as the necessary roads are upened to them it is the
intention to start a boating club there, as
the waters of the Fraser nre ton rapid
and cold for the enjoyment of aquatic
pleasures;
And whereas in other plnccB not possessing such suitable natural pleasure resorts, largo sums of money nm spent hi
creating urtlticiul ones;
And whereas with respect to deepening Uio Brunctto Itiver as mentioned in
said petition, and which would be required to carry out said scheme as proposed,
it is certain that deepening und changing
of said river would entirely destroy valuable water privileges.
Tukiu-fo-ik he it Resolved by the
citizens of New Westminster, in publio
mooting assembled, that the prayer of
the said petition should not bo granted,
nor tho public and private citizens
respectively interested ue deprived of
valuable and inalienable rights and
privileges;
And bo It further Resolved that a copy
of this resolution be sent to the legislative assembly through the proper channel.
Continuing, Mr. Cunningham said
that instead of doing nwny with Burnaby Lake, wo wauled more lakes; ho
wished there wero throe or four more
between this oity and Vancouver.
Mr. iS, G. Jaques seconded the resolution and Baid he was a property
holder and had ul ready signed a protest, which Imd boon sent down to tho
houBO. Ho thought the draining of
Burnaby Lake would nut only be a
great drawback i<> the properly holders
in the vicinity, but n great drawback 'to tho community ns well,
and that everything possible
ahould bo done to prevent tho passage
of tho bill.
Mr. T. J. Trapp (ono of the promoters of tho Burnaby Lake Improve-
ment -.hum-*)took the flour and   said
he would have much pleasure in telling
the meeting what he knew about the
Improvement Company. HeJ had
been requested last fall, by a friend,
to tako a trip through tho neighborhood of Burnaby Lake. He bad nn
idea that tho lake could be reclaimed,
and expected to pay tho ordinary 82.50
per aoro to the government for the
land. After taking the trip, which
was a very difficult one, he (the speaker) had an idea that the job of reclaiming could be dono first-rate. Ho
had been asked if he would allow Ids
name to bo used ns ono of thu promoters, and hnd consented, because
lio considered that the scheme would
be it benefit to Westminster. From
somo uf tho remarks that had fallen at
the meeting it would appear that tho
promoters of the scheme wero nothing
moro nor leas than highway robbers.
Ho believed that the scneme would
enhance the value of property. As to
a pleasure resort, what was Burnaby
Lalto to-day? (Mr. Lord—"A fine
sheet of water.") ies, but you roach
the lake through about half a mile uf
cranberry swamp at ono place, The
land about tho lake was black musk,
and in California that kind of land was
selling for from 8200 to 8500 per aero.
As far as tho lake beiug a pleasure resort at present, ho claimed that it waa
no such thing, and proceeded to point
out, at considerable length, owing to
the nature of tbo soil and other circumstances, what ho considered its un*
suitableness for a pleasure resort. The
intention, Mr. Trapp stated, was not
to drain thu lake all away, but merely
to lower tho wator four or five feet,
which would reclaim a good deal of
land, enhance the valuo uf property
near the lake, and still leave a lake of
21- milo3 long. At present the hike
menslired 4 miles. Mr. Trapp insinuated that the opposers of the schemo
wore actuated by jealousy, and Btated
that as h:s interests wero all in this
eity ho would bo tho laBt ouo to go into anything that would injuro tho
city's interests.
Mr. Jaques called the attention of
Mr. Trapp to a clause in tho bill and
asked what was meant by "high water
mark," and also pointed out thnt nothing was said in the bill about paying
§2.50 per ncre for tho reclaimed land.
Mr. Trapp replied that the high
water mark would be defined by competent authority, und (jocosely) that
if there was nothing in the bill about
paying 82.50 per aero it was all the
better for tho promoters of the scheme
—thoy would havo a cultas poilatch.
(Laughter,)
Mr. James Kennedy was called, and
said that thirty years ago, iu company
with Ro--. Mr. Whito (father of tho
present Methodist minister here) and
Dr. Evans, ho had ascended the Brunette River to Burnaby Lake in a
canoo, by packing the canoo part of
the way. Rev. Mr. White he had
always considered a vory far-seeing
mnn, and ho had predicted on that
occasion that some day Burnaby Lake
would bo tho future resort for the
future great city of Westminster.
(Applause.) Tho speaker agreed with
a great deal of what Mr. Trapp had
said, iu ao far ns the surrounding property boing benefited by tho lowering
of tho hike, nnd also that tho lake
might nut suffer as a pleasure resort
from tho operation, but ho must strongly object against any privato company
getting hold of the lako. The lake
should bo kept in tho hands of the
government until the timo arrived for
improviug it for a public resort. These
improvements could be made by the
city, and the city should mako application to the government tu obtain
control of the lake for this purposo.
(Apphtuso.)
Tho resolution us above, was then
put und carried, with hut one dissenting voice, an amendment tu the contrary intent, by Mr. Trapp, having
failed to get u seconder.
Moved by J. C. Armstrong, seconded
by Thos. Ovens, That a copy of tho foregoing resolution bo sent to New Westminster city council and also to Vancouver city council, asking them to co-operate
with this meeting In protesting against
the passing of tlio Burnaby Lake Improvement Co.'s bill.   Carried.
Moved by James Cunningham, seconded by J. O. Armstrong, That a telegram
be sent to the Hon, John Robson, requesting him to hold the Burnaby Lake
bill over awaiting n resolution from this
city.   Carried.
Moved by H, V. Edmonds, seconded
by Aid. Calbick, that a copy of the main
resolution be forwarded to the city and
district members,   Carried,
Tho meeting then adjourned.
