HOTES AND COMMITS.
A proposal is on foot in Edinburgh to build a churoh for the deaf
and dumb. Regular services have
been held for a longtime, and lately
the increase in the number of attendants-has suggested the idea of erecting*, permanent building. There
are two hundred deaf and dumb
persons in Edinburgh.
There has lately been established
in Newfoundland a Department of
Fisheries to look specially affair that
most important branch of the ii-
land'i industries. It is believed,
according to one authority, that "in
a few years tangible evidence ot its
value will be experienced in the restoration of the shore fishery."
Lord Tennyson is a spiritualist
aftef a fashion. Hesayshefrequen-
% goes into self induced trances,
when all at once out of the intensity of consciousness of individuslity
the individuality itself seemed to
dissolve into boundless being, where
death was an almost laughable im
possibility, and the loss of personality seemed the only true life.—Ex.
Wo hope that the "laureate" has
not taken to opium or hasheesh in
his, old age.
Ihe Chicago Tribune gets even
on the Harrison orowd in this way:
Two large processions encountered
eaoh other on the publio highway
near Indianapolis. "Let us pass,"
said the leader of one, "we are the
man that first nominated Harrison
for' President." "Wo have the
right of way," haughtily replied the
leader of the other procession. "We
are the man that went to school
with him when we were a boy 1"
And the shock of the collision shook
the earth and broke all the windows
for miles around.
The Toronto Mail makes the following appropriate remarks: If
the decision in the crossing ease
should be against Manitoba, the
Legislature of that Province will no
doubt adopt a series of resolutions
calling for joint action on the part
of all the provinces, which will in
effect be deprived of the power of
building railways, It is understood
that most of the other provinces are
prepared to take immediate action
through their respective legislatures
upon any oall or recommendation
that may emanate from Manitoba,
Unquestionably her ease is  their

the popular vote. In Texas there
was a gain in the Democratic
figures of 30,000, in Michigan 20,-

than the total gains of the Republicans. The latter, however, refuse
to allow that the figures from the
Southern States can be fairly included in making up the popular
vote, the Republicans contend that
their voters are not allowed to cast
their ballots in the solid South.
Later experiments with the phonograph, says an exchange, are
making yet clearer the limitless
possibilities of the invention. The
instrument is so sensitive that a
gasp or a yawn is faithfully recorded upon the yielding wax, and it
is said that by its means the breathing of a healthy man from that
of a consumptive could be distinguished. Another rumor from recent inspection is that kisses may
be reproduced with a startling exactness. Plainly the phonograph
is going to invade privaoy of life to
an extent never dreamed of, and
the fierce light whioh beats upon a
throne is going to penetrate the retirement of the humblest  citizen.

A "North Oountree Maid" writei
to the London Standard in a sap
castio vein on the fuss made because a few Englishmen have chosen
American girls for wives. This
young lady pretends to favor the
following remedy for tho present
dire condition of affairs: "There
seemi only one remedy—the polioy
of retaliation. If American girl.
are to marry our best men, and to
queen it in English society, we
must invade the States as they have
invaded Europe, and, finding husbands for ourselves on the other side
of the water, may, perhaps, sueceed
in revolutionising American society
(as Americans have ours), and give
to it some of those Old World graces
ih which it ii, at preient, sorely
lacking."  ■
Tho proceedings now pending before the Superior Oourt, in whioh
the city of New Westminster and a
number of the leading citisena sre
defendants, reveals an anomalous
state of the law. Without venturing to express any opinion one
way or the other on a matter which
is now in oourt, where it will be
properly dealt with, it does seem as
if sufficient safeguards against the
granting of exparte injunctions are
not now required by law. Some
amendment is neceuary in our
municipal laws, so that where the
few wish to set themselves in opposition to tho majority they will
be required to give proper seourity
for all damages caused by their opposition before they oan acquire the
right to bs heard,—Vic Timet.

thought that a memorial asking fur a
friendly tr.ffio agreement emanated

"Publio Opinion" has an article in another column to which
we would call special attention at
this particular time. It deals with
a subject which must and should
engross a large share of public attention in this oity for the next few
weeks—that of the forthcoming
civio election and the constitution
ol our municipal council for the
ensuing year. We have lost no
opportunity of urging this important matter upon tho notico of tlio
electors well beforehand, so that no
unseemly hurrying and consequent
mistakes should result in choosing
the controllers of the city's destiny
for the coming year. So far an
unexceptionable choice has been
made for mayor,, which it is certain
the peoplo will ratify; but no names
have yet been mentioned to till the
nine aldermen's chain. According
to the new city charter, the nomination for mayor and aldermen at
the fint civic election shall be held
on the fint Monday in January,
which happens to be the 7th of
that month, and the polling, if any,
on the following Monday, the 14th.
So we have just got until the 7th
of January—a trifle over three
weeks—to bring out candidates,
hear their views, consult with them
on matters pertaining to the oity's
welfare, and nominate the men who,
after careful consideration, shall be
deemed the most safe and worthy
in every respect to take the helm
in civio affairs for 1889. "Publio
Opinion" suggests a number of
names, from whom we should
imagine a good ticket might be
chosen, although we can hardly
agree with him that the choice
should be made at hazard, or on
grab-bag rules, even if the names
mentioned do appear equally eligible.
There must be some choice oven
among the list given by Public Opinion ; and then there may be other
names suggested.   Trot them out.
Everyone knows the old adage
whioh runs something like this:
"A fool may nsk questions which a
philosopher eannot answer." We
have no intention of posing as the
- thiUaasjha. am iU. __*., ._i utll
less intention of calling our correspondent, "Justice," a fool, because,
in the first place, it wouldn't bo
gentlemanly, you know, and, then,
our correspondent happens to be a
considerably older and much bigger
man than ourselves. With due
deference to "Justice," however, wo
must characterize his questions, one
and all, as extremely folish, under
tho circumstances—not one of them
io much as touching upon the subject of the injunction—while they
confirm our previous suspicions,
which have been shared by others,
as to the real motives and object of
the in junctors, constituting a complete expose of these, and placing
the small clique of obstructionists in
their tree light—not an enviable
one, it mutt be confessed, Every
One knows that the injunction was
procured ostensibly to restrain the
eity oouncil from making ovor tho
debentures to the debenture trust
committee. To be more explicit,
the injunction was aimed to prevent
the carrying into effect of the following resolution of the connoil,
passed with but ono dissenting voice,
that of Alderman Herring, at the
regular weekly meeting on Nov. Sth
last:
Moved by Aid. Shiles and seconded by
Aid. Calbick and resolved: That the
mayor is hereby authorized to issue the
d.Mnturca under tho "ferry service by-
• law" and "workshops and foundry bylaw" and negotiate the samo for the best
Wioe that can be obtained to the satisfaction of the finance committee, and
that th. proceed, thereof, not exceeding
1160,009, bo deposited in the Bank of
British Colnmbla to the credit of Ju.
Cunningham, It. Dickinson, T, Ovens,
B. Douglu, A. Kwen, J. Hendry, D, 8
Curtis, A. M. Herring and H. Elliott
(conatituting the dobontorea truat), to be
paid oat only upon their written order;
and that tbe surplus realized by tho sale
efalcb debentures, if any, be paid Into
the oity treasury.
Our readers will remember that, a
few days afterwards, on Nov. 14th,
at a crowded public meeting of the
ratepayers and others, called on the
requisition of the present injunction
clique, a resolution was introduced
by that clique, condemning the
above resolution of the counoil and
asking that it be reconsidered and
rescinded, On tlie ground that it was
Illegal. The meeting, on the contrary, passed the following resolution, enthusiastically and practically
unanimously:
Moved by Thoa. Cunningham, seconded
by J.G. Jamie, and resolved: That
this meeting heartily endoreses tho action
of the S.W Westminster municipal
council In relation to Southern Railway
aSilr. end considers that said counoil is
tmerttnt of credit for the able and care*
ful manner hi which it hu conducted
this taporteul enterprise.
Notwilhsoanding this signal rebuke,
th. uaall rjiqne referred to actually
uadsrtooh—» great wai their
anxiety touching the legality of the
coatlsel's action, and so large was
their interest in the issue, compared
with that of the great majority of
tkif*Jbw-to«iisinsB(!)-tosneakoff
til viotoria and procure an Injunc
tion for the purposes defined above,
on an ex parte statement, from a
Victoria jndgo; thus plunging tho
city into needless cost (for they also
worked in slyly with their injunction
an application to quash tho "workshops by-law"), and stulifying and
injuring their fellow-citizens by
shattering, for the time being, the
public and business confidence in
the good faith and credit of the oity;
and all, as they pretended, because
they were not satisfied as to the
technical legality of the council's
action on a point of detail. It has
been becoming more apparent, however, every day that the ostensible
purpose of the injunction was merely
a blind to cover the reafinotives and
object of the injunotors—hostility
to the entile schemejind a doliberato
attempt to embarrass the oity so that
it should be compelled to repudiate
all its obligations in the   matter	
obligations assumed by our city
counoil and affirmed and confirmed,
in good faith, and so received by
the railway oompany, by a majority
of 266 of the ratepayers, voting on
tho 7th of August last on the two
debentures by-laws. But, if any
doubt remained that the utter overthrow and repudiation of the present
Southern Railway scheme was the
real and ultimate object aimed at
by the clique of injunctors, it has
been completely dissipated by tho
clean breast wlilcfi our correspondent, "Justice" made of tbe matter
yesterday, He appears, indeed, to
be utterly unconscious of the fact
that the questions he asks do not
refer to the ostensible injunction at
nil, but, if they have any place
under the sun, belong to the period
whon the Southern Railway matter
was being discussed, .prior to the
vote on the matter by the ratepayers. From a vory cursory perusal of the communication in question last night, owing to lack of
time aftor it reached this office, we
hinted that we should take np the
various questions of onr correspondent in their order. For reasons
which should now be obvious, but
which we shall repeat, wo have not
done so. In the fint place, whioh
is a sufficient reason in itself, the
question of reconsidering the action
of the city council and the nearly
unanimous vote of the ratepayers
in August last is not a live one—it
is noither before the publio nor tho
courts, and is never likely to be. In
the second placo, supposing that
such were the case, there is only one
question out of the six that merits
the ghost of an nnswer, and we venture to say that our correspondent
would not have put even that solitary gem in the philosopher-defying
style in whioh it was couohed, if he
had taken the trouble to get a more
thorough grasp of the whole subject
beforehand. The remaining five
questions, as any unbiased reader,of
The Columbian yesterday may see
for himself, are either very weak
beggings of tbe question, libellous
inuendoos, irrelevant, or beside the
issue. The effect of the communication itself, as we have intimated
before, is to tear the mask completely from the injunction scheme,
fore our citizens. We do not believe
that the injunotors themselves will
feel grateful to "Justice" for thus
exposing them. With this new
and strong side light on the subject,
it becomes more important than
ever that the injunotion should be
dissolved and the scheme defeated,
as success in their bold, and yet
dastardly attempt at embarrassment
and repudiation would not only
mean disaster, but disgrace. If the
injunctors should succeed, which
heaven forend, we dare not answer
for the rise in eiderdown mattresses
and asphaltum.

The eoats ol the tall bay [horses

is as It should be, except the coaoa-

Dut Instead of holding his head erect
Itll that dignity and hauteur thatbe-

THE BBILL OF THE QHOBTB.
An 010 Sergeant an tlie Plain. Tell* a
Blrarigo Story of Oovernor's Island.
" Tho strangest experience I Over
had," said tho old sergeant, waa n:
old Fort William, on Governor's ly.
and, In New York harbor, ovor twenty
years ngo.
" I was a sorgoant at tho time, married, and, with my young wifo lnul
boon living tn a small houso on the
lower ond of the island, but the coin,
mantling officer concluded to tear ii.
down, and I was told to select the
best rooms of tho non-commisslonoi!
unicorn' quarters In tho then unoccupied fort.
"What with my usual military duties
and the fatigue of moving and placing
things to rights, I was pretty woll tired
out whou night came, and slept like a
log.
"My wifo was worn out, too, but
did not sloop so sound as not to lie
disturbed cvory night by what slie
called ■ tlie funniest nolsea that sourW-
ed Just liko thunder,' but I paid but
little attention to her thinking it wn-
only tho nolao of passing steamboat--
or tho wash of the waters on tlie
shore,
" It might havo been two weoks nf.
tor I had settlod down that ono night
I awoke suddenly from a sound sleep
with that peculiar fooling of droail or
uiioiislneas upon mo which arises Ire::-.
an unknown cause and has boon experienced by nearly all of us.
•"John, do you hear It now!" ashuil
my wife whon sho discovered I was
awake; ' It sounds like somo persons
at work below.'
" LiMtening for a abort tints. I ror.
Offnlzo.1 familiar sounds, and had In,.'
been positive that tho doors were
ioiPked, with tho keys hanging on r.
nail lu my room, I would havo swor.-i
Unit tlio batterlos were manned by experienced gunners.
" The quick tread df tho mon a-
thoy dragged the guns ln, tho ring of
the rammer, the handling of the shot
that lay piled ln readiness for uso,
thn return of the Iron wheels over the
rails as It was run out of tho piirt,
woro perfect in every detail, only limiting tho words of command and tho
report of tho piece to complete tlie
Illusion.
" As I listened the uproar Increased
In volume until tt was Impossible for
us to hoar oach other's voices without
raising thorn to a high pltoh.
"Tho guns woro served with what
r.eomod incredible rapidity, and the
vory walls, masslvo as they were,
trembled under the heavy artillery In
continual motion, while the balls wero
rolling from ono end of the casements
to tho other, striking tho sides with
hoavy thuds.
" Unable to stand this state of affairs any longer, I arose;' and, lighting
iny lantern, took tho keys along with
a loaded revolver, and, descending the
stairs as lightly as possible, reached
the.door. The noise at.this point was,
If anything, more deafening than when
I left my room.
" Cautiously Inserting tho key Into
the lock, I cooked my six-shooter, am'
throwing tho door opon suddenly, will,
raised lantern and weapon presented,
entered tlio noarost casement to. Hnd
It' unoccupied save by the grim old
gun and the shot stacked ln their
usual places.
" It wns the samo ln every battery
I entered. Not n footprint disturbed
the thick dust upon tho floor, nor waa
thero a linger mark upon either the
gun or tho shot. Tho tomplons were
In placo, and no carriage had traveled
ovor tho rusty rails.
" Confounded ovon still more than I
was beforo, I roturnod to my room,
nnd was disturbed no moro that night.
The ruckot, howevor, was commenced
tho following night, and was
kept up, with slight; Intermission, for a
month.
Hy account of this singular disturbance was met with Jests and laughter from my follow soldiers, which
they modlflod, It Is truo, whon I corroborated it by my wife, but then only
so far as to declaro that it was
S'Sohemo on our part to got removed
from uncomfortable quarters to ono
of tho new quarters then about completed.
"Nettled at their taunts, I vowod
that If ever the noises commenced
I would have other witnesses
to them, and I did not have long to
watt, for about ono month after Twos
awakened by the phantom gunners.
"This timo I passed out ovor tbo
drawbridge and, going to the men's
quarters, awakened a sergeant by the
name of Smith, and much against his
will mad. blm accompany ma to the
~~*ie.
After standing listening to tho
racket until Smith's face was as white
as a sheet and he was trembling from
head to toot, I threw open the'door.
''Smith always declared that for a
moment bo saw tho ghostly crow at
their places, but could detect nothing,
nor could I over discover any eauso
for the disturbance, although I often
was awakened by the nightly thill of
my Invlalblo artilleryman.
" Some months after leaving the island I learned that during tho Mexican
war an artillery oompany drilled with
these guns some time before thoy left
for Mexico, and that tbey wero nearly
all killed In battle. I suppose tt must
have been a freak of theirs to have
the|r reunions In these casements and
practice with (heir old friends, the
guns."—[Minneapolis Tribune.

enable all the inmates to be aroused and

It must never be forgotten that tho most
precious moments an at the commencement of a fin, and not a single aecond ol

equally successful result
The great.point is presence of mind,..

tied over the eyes and nose will make

From the Squamlsh.
The small-pox epidemic on the Squa-
miah has almost run its course, and
only two patients are now suffering
from the disease. Since the outbreak
four deaths have occurred, whioh, considering the absence of a regular medical attendant, is a much less number
than might have been expected. A
fresh supply of medicines and provisions has been sont over to tl.a
Squamish and orders given to maintain
the strictest quarantine. Before the
quarantine on Seymour Creek was
raised, all the bedding, blankets and
clothes belonging to the Indians were
burned and a new outfit supplied
them. Thero were uo deaths ou Seymour Oreek,

Salvation Indians*    ,
The Port Simpson Indians aro nothing if not enterprising and progressive. A correspondent of the Standard
writes: "A number, twelve or so, have
formed a band, calling themselves the
Salvation Army, parade the streets
every night, singing and praying. They
use a house called their barracks. On
the night of Monday December 3rd
they kept their noise up till 1 or 2 o'clock in the morning..This so disturbed
tho slumbers of the neighbors that
the*/ got up and ordered them off. Refusing to do so a tight was the outcome,
in wuioh it appears the saints militant had the worst of it." The Army
will probably be sending a detachment
shortly to do missionary work in the
swamp,

A Karlkera Venture,
Tho sloop Venture, will it is expected, leave to-day for her fishing grounds
in Qneen Oharlotto Sound, and her
owners look forward to a successful
expedition. She has been manned
and fitted out, in the opinion of old
seamen, in a complex manner. The
Venture is commanded by Capt. Os-
grom, a Norwegian, aaid to be an experienced and thoroughly competent
seaman, aod an old deep-sea fisher.
The ere * is composed of Norwegian
and Scotch fishermen. She is supplied with 10,000 hooks and her catch
■will \yi principally black cod and halibut. Her gross tonnage is 74 tons
and her registered tonnage 48 tons.
To all appearances she is a well constructed and sea-worthy craft. Everybody wishes her success.— News Advertiser.

At 15 minutes to 4 o'clock this afternoon, while the local train was shunting, a Chinaman passing along tho
narrow passage leading between the
track and railing towards tbe
depot from the corner of Douglas
street, by some accident slipped
and fell under tho wheels of the engine.
The left leg was almost; completely
levered close to the trunk, and a few
bad bruises inflicted besides. Senator
Mclnnes, who was passing at the time
and saw the accident, immediately
went to the poor creature's rescue and
succeeded in stopping'tbo flow of blood
in time to save his life. The injured
man was sent to the Royal Columbian
Hospital for treatment. Just on
going to press, we wore informed that
the unfortunate Chinaman had succumbed to his terrible injury and died
since being taken to the hospital.
Mayor Dickinson has handed tbe caie
over to Coroner Ferris, and sn inquest
will be held to-morrow to ascertain if
the railway authorities are culpable.

Katie Putnam is without doubt tho
best known and most popular soubrctte
on the American stage. She has a
style of acting peculiar to herself and
is over fresh and buoyant, with a sincerity that never fails to hold hor audience under the sway of her remarkable
powers. The following pretty compliment was paid her by tne Charleston
News and Courier: "For twenty years
back we have seen the most noted
actresses of Miss Putnam's school, and
all schools approximating to it, and we
have passed that time of life when
youthful enthusiasm would run so mad
with the beauty of a woman or permit
us to fall in love with hor for the character ahe personates. We therefore
feci justified in speaking earnestly of
Mias Putnam as an artiste. She cannot be excelled in her particular roles.
We are utterly unablo to do her justice. She must be seen to be appreciated. She also has the most creditable support of any of the companies
that have visited Us this season,

Mrs. Samuel Herring, who lives a
short distance above Brownsville, and
wbo is credited with owning tlie finest
flock of geese in the province, had the
misfortune to lose 29 fine plump birds
last week. As the geese wero not in
tho habit of srtaying far from home
Mrs. Herring concluded that they had
been stolon, and her suspicions turned
towards the Indians on the Musquim
reservation at the mouth of the uorth
arm of the Fraser. A search warrant
was obtained and an officer was despatched to the reservation to find the
birds if -possible. After visiting a few
cabins without discovering any clue,
the shanty occupied by Charlie Mo-
Shane and Johnny, both Indians, was
entered, and enquiries made as to the
missing geese. While they were
earnestly protesting tbat they knew
nothing whatever about the matter, a
great cackling was .heard apparently
from beneath tho cabin, A couple of
boards were immediately lifted up, and
strange to aay two of the missing birds
were found stowed away in rather
limited quarters. Both Indi ins were
arrested and brought to Westminster
to explain to the court how they wore
so careless as to allow stolen geese to
mako a home under their cabin.

PUBLIO OPINION

It is about time, in view of the approaching civic elections, that the ratepayers should know who are the gentlemen desirous of sitting in tho counoil,
and what aro their views, so that when
the time comes they may not have to
"act in haste and repent at leisure."
It is due to the ratepayers to know
who aspires to civic honors, as, if
elected, these men will have the handling and disposal of the citizens' money,
and it will give thoae who. want to do
so time to enquire aa tdfcheirquiilifiea.
tions, and consider as to their fitness
for the important f unotions they have
to discharge. Now that we have connection with the eastern provinces,
thero will be representatives from the
various government departments frequently visiting the city, and they will
need to bo met by those conversant
with the matters requiring government
aid and adjustment in the city and the
country tributary to it. There will be
financiers wishing to augment our industries or create new ones. These
business men must be met in a thorough business-like manner and their
enterprise and energy fostered rather
than crushed. -The opppijtion to our
getting rail connection with systems
south of the boundary must be met
with a solid front, made up of men
whose interests in the oity will brook
no opposition. In short, our next
council must bo composed of those who
will stand shoulder to shoulder to carry
out the already expressed wishes of the
people, which will go to making tho
city's commercial .importance felt
amongst her sister cities of the coast,
as well as across the continent to the
Atlantic seaboard. Public Opinion
suggests the names of a number of
gentlemen whose mercantile interests
and ability would assure to the citizens
the certainty that, while looking to
every chance of advancement of the
city's welfare, thoy would handle the
city's finances with care and caution.
They arc: Messrs. B. Douglas, D. S.
Curtis, E. S. Scni-lar, Thos. Cunningham, H. Elliott, .Tno. Piid, H. Hoy,
W. Wolfende-i, J. G, Jaijues, Alex.
Ewen, B. Shibi, D. DrysdaU- Jns.
Harvey, and A. M. Herring. Still
othen might bo mentioned, but Publio
Opinion thinks that, of the fourteeu
gentlemen mentioned, nine first-olaas
aldermen might be picked—even if the
names wero all shaken op together in
a hat and drawn out by a blindfold
buy. Public Opinion would like to
see a requisition got out to a full ticket
of aldermen, picked from the above
list, or others that may be suggested
for the various wards, so that wo may
hear the views of candidates at an
early date, and make our choice before
polling day is upon us.
Pdbwc Opinion.
Fagged Oh'.—None but those who have
becomo fagged out, know what a depressed, miserable feeling it Is, AU
strength is gone, and despondency has
taken hold of the suffererers. They feel
as though there Is nothing to live for.
There, howover, is a cure—one box of
Parmelee's Vegetable Pills will do wonders In restoring health and strength.
Mandrake and Dandelion are two of the
articles entering into ihe composition of
