Philadelphia, Ledger, that ho is "the

One who has known Gen. Boulanger in his private life says;—
"Ihe jeune et beau General is in
reality neither jeuno nor beau, but
a worn-out old fellow of 56, who has
his grey hair and beard carefully
dyed dark brown, and who uses
perfumes and pomades like any
coquette. At home he is often in
bed for days together, with feet
bandaged and body wrapped up in
ten layers of flannel, in order to get
rid of his gout. And when he
appears in the street lie minces his
stops like a youth of 18 who wears
his top hat for the first time."
According to American Notes and
Queries, "in one of tho cellars of the
llaths kellor at Breman, thero are
twelvu large cases of wine, each
case containing the celebrated
Rosonwciu which was deposited
there in 1624. Ono case of this
wine, containing two hundred and
four bottles, cost five hundred rix
dollars at that time. Taking all
expenses into account nnd compounding the interest, a single
glass, one-eighth of n bottle, would
cost about $300,000, or about $300

Tho London IKotW says: The
Emperor of Russia has decorated several French authors, and
has thereby offended the Germans,
somo of whose principal writers
would also have been decorated, no
doubt, but for the fact that neither
the Emperor nor the Empress ever
reads German. His Majesty's favorite authors are Dumas pere,
Balzac, Paul de Kook, and Edmund
About; while Ihe Empress likes
Prosper Merimee, Victor Hugo,
and Octave Feuillet; and she also
reads many English works, preferring those of Dickens, Scott,
Marryat, Thackeray, and Wilkio
Collins. They nre both particularly
fond of Lover's novels, nnd "Ten
Thousand,a Year" nnd "Valentino
Vox" are constantly taken up by
them, and "Vivian Grey," and

A bright detective in Macon
Georgia, says the Macon News, captured a burglar in a very clover
manner. A store in Hnzelhurst
had been robbed, and there was
seemingly not the slightes clue to
work upon. Whilo examining the
premises tho detectivo noticed an
apple, out of which two bites had
beon taken. His professional
instinct caused him to oxamino the
apple, and he saw upou it tooth
marks that wero not only irregular,
but peculiar, nnd ho resolved to Hud
the man who had bitten thnt npplo.
He visited a store in the neighboring village whoro he knew thore was
a number of loaling negroes. Among
the number thore wns a roal negro
dude, mid his manner and conversation convinced the detective that
lie had found the man he wanted,
but it was necessary to put him to
the test. Syping some apples in
the store the wily detective purchased a dime's worth and treated
the crowd. The dude negro had
taken just one bite, and as he was
raising tho apple for another away
went the apple and his two wrists
wore joined with a shining pair of
bracelets. It was done so quickly
that the negro stood as if paralyzed
and submitted to bo led oft' withont
resistance. He subsequently owned
up to the entire affair.

From our Victoria Representative,
Viciobja, Jan. 20.-J. R. Tait, a

tho "Carbonabe" claim at Rock Creek,
arrived in the city last night via the

City, Nooksack Valley and Whatcom.
Thoro was about twclvo of snow, ovor
which ho travelled on snow shoes.
Mr. Tait saya tho mining outlook on
Rock Creek is very promising. About
forty miners are wintering there nnd
all aro sanguine Ho has shipped a
thousand pounds of oro to San Fran*

assay made; also four hundred pounds
to Butto, Mont. This oro assays

afflicted with the disease. The Indians

to his subject, giving his experience
when acting as Methodist minister at
Victoria, and also whon engaged in
the Fraser River camps, Hope, Yale
and other points. The lecture was replete with amusing and well told anecdotes, affording not only much laughter, but instructive as giving an historical resume of the last thirty years. It

come forward on some future occasion
and give us some thing more in the
samo strain.—Vaneauver World.

[From First Page-
be in a better position financially; but
there is no proper provision in the bylaws, and we must go on for fifty yeara
paying the same taxes en tho railway
debentures. I need not say that, if
elected, I will assist to carry out any
measures that will benefit tho city.
Mr, Shiles—"Why did tho injunotors try to quash tbo by-laws jf"
Mr. Lord—"Thoy did not try to
quash the by-laws; thore was no such
application,"
Mayor Dickinson — "The papers
served on the council stated that the
action was brought to restrain the council from dealing with tho debentures,
and also to quash the workshops bylaw."   (Applause),
Mr. Shiles—"1 would liko Mr. Lord
to explain that."   (Applause).
Capt. Scoullar was called for and
camo forward amidst applause. He
said:—"Mr. Chairman and gentlemen,
tins iB tho first time 1 have addressed
a largo audience, and I nsk a fair hearing. You havo road my address; that
address has received considerable
abuse, but I notico that nearly all the
other candidates havo adopted about
tho same platform. I have been in
the town for some ten years, and have
always been to tho front in enterprises
for the advancement of tho city. 1
went in with other gentlemen and put
money in tho woollen mill at a time
whon it was represented to be languishing and Mr. Lundbom said to me
that it was in danger of being taken to
Victoria. We put 89,000 in it, and it
iB in a nourishing condition." Mr.
Scoullar here roforred to the extensive
building operations ho had engaged in
in the city, and continued; "lam prepared if improvements are taxed to
pay my taxes (applause). I nm in favor of improvements of all kinds, but,
of course not to rush faster than we
can go at first, I consider that Westminster has tho best position commercially of any city in tho provinco.
Speaking about taxation, our assessment us a city is ridiculously small; it
injures the credit of our city. Business-men, seeing tho small figure of
our ratable property at the banks in
tho cast and in London, think that
Westminster is a village of about 600
inhabitants; I was told so by a gentleman from the east, who was surprised
to seo auch a largo aud thriving place
with such an absurdly small assessment. Wo should have nn assessment
really of at least 83,000,000. You
know 1 have takon a prominent part
in tho railway; I havo spent considerable monoy and a great doal of time.
We had a hard time to get tlio necessary stock taken up to save the char-
tor, and tried to get many of our citizens to take stock, among them, Joe
Armstrong, that deolined. If we had
not succeeded, the city would have
lost the charter, and I am surprised at
tho abuse that we have got from some
of the citizens. If there is any citizen
now that wants stock, we are ready to
share it with him. 1 consider I am as
good a business man as any going, and
if elected I am going in for pushing
the town ahcud. I am not going in
under false pretensions.   (Applause).
Mr. Herring was called upon and
said: "Like Capt. Scoullar, this is also
my maiden speech beforo a public audience. I am independent; I belong
to no party but that of honesty and
right. I have had to stand alone, I am
sorry to Bay, ou tho sido of right, in
the council, on some occasions. It is
a baso falsehood to say that I am opposed to the Southern Railway. Look
at my interests horo, and tell, mo if I
can afford to bo opposed tothe railway. Mr. Scoullar talks about his
buildings; I think I can point to a few
buildings nlso. I built the opera house,
as you all know. 1 would not have
built it if I had not looked ahead and
expected the city to advaric'o1 as a result of tho Southern Railway, I have
never opposed tho railway except on
two occasions—whon Shoefe & Co. attempted to secure tho debentures, and
when the trust committee was appointed. I was satisfied that the council
had no right to appoint that committee. If they had taken my advico, it
would have saved them somo law expenses. If elected, I will give my
honest and hearty support to the railway, which is the life of this city. I
am in favor of all improvements that
will help the city. We can lay the
foundation of those that wo may not
be able to carry through, I ask you
to elect me on Monday, and I will
work in the boat interests of the city.
If not elected, I shall continue to do
the same.   (Applause).
Mr. Shiles—"If you arc elected,
will you vote yourself on three committees? Would you pursue the same
course that you have in tho past with
regard to the foldora ?"
Mr. Herring—"The finance commit-
too did the best they kuow how In tho
matter of the folders."
Mr. Shiles— "When one gentleman
offered 850 and another ono 8100 to
advertise in the folder did you not object, and nt the same time work in an
advertisement of your own?"
Mr. Herring—''That is the first time
I have heard it. Auy man that tells
you that he offered me any money to
put an advertisement in the folder Ib a
darned liar."   (Sensation).
Mr. Wise was next called and spoke
briefly: "I do not- think it is necessary
to go over what threo or four have already gone over. If you elect mo, my
first step will be to get the railway oarried through in the nest possible way,
(Applause). It is necesssry that we
should have water works and also
sewerage. I will give my attention to
tho public park, I will always bo willing to carry out everything to the
best advantage so far as thu finanoes
will allow. I am in favor of tho market and will go in for starting it With
regard to the present counoil, I do not
approve of tho way they havo oarried
out a great many things, but I believe
they have done the best they oould,
If you elect me I will sec and havo
less law and more improvements,
(Laughter and applause).
Mr. Thos, Cunningham was the
next candidate called out, and he spoke
as follows: ' 'Mr. chairman and gentlemen, I am sorry I have to appear in a
rather disabled condition. (In explanation, Mr. Cunningham appeared
with his arm iu a sling from a sore
finger). It is rather unfortunate that
I have had an accident. 1 have not
been able to solicit a voto In this election. It waa oharged againat me in
Thb Columbian that I was An unwilling candidate. While I would be if
everything wu running smoothly, I
feol it is my duty to come out at this
time and work for the oity. Thb Columbian correspondent stated that we
wanted volunteers to servo the city.
You don't always find that tho volunteer who is so anxious to serve his
neighbors is the very best man for a
publio position. He is very likely to
have aome ulterior motive, It is the
hardest thing in the world to get honest men to touch politics. This business of writing anonymous communications is a bad ono. The man that
attacks his neighbor in this way is a
scoundrel. I have lived fifty years
and have never writton an anonymous
communication.   There  hu boon a
good deal of shuffling hen to-night.
Some men have tried to make you believe that they are the most earnest
advocates of tho railway, but they did
not put their names on the bond."
(Applause). Mr. Cunningham then
started to tako up tho injunctors'
pamphlet, but Mr. Curtis said he
would do that later on. Mr. Cunningham: "I want to get a slap nt
these injunctors, but 1 will leave it to
Mr. Curtis. My record is clear on
tho Southern railway scheme. Fur
five years I havo been working on that
railway scheme. I do not regret it. I do
regret that some misguided men (laughter) aro throwing obstacles in the way.
We must make the city an attractive
place for peoplo to live in. Victoria
lias profitted much from sueh a policy
and we can loam a lesson from her.
The time is not far distant when we
shall export lumber, fish and fruit in
groat quantities, and all experience
goes to show that success in exporting
products must depond upon competing
routes. Wo must have competing
lines, if wo aro to reach the markets
of tho world—if it does cost something.
(Great applause). Don't be frightened
about this fifty yeurs business; there's
nothing in it; you can't eat your cake
and keep it too. Now 1 can calculate
this way. A roast of beef is a good
thing for dinner. I buy a roast of
boof, which costs me 82. In fifty
years, at compound interest, that beef
will cost 8H00I (Laughter). I could
have bought 10 cents worth of corn
meal and filled my stomach, but 1 prefer the roast beef, because it's just
what I want. It furnishes me with
strength; it bracos me up; it helps me
to raise a family. (Uproarious laugh*
ter, and long continued). Don't lose
Bight of the fact that the injunctors
tried thoir very best to quash the bylaws, When they say they are in
favor of the railway you can moot them
with this." Mr. Cunningham here
made a calculation to show that the
injunctors had spent mure on the proceedings than, if carried out for fifty
years, wouid build the railway, and
elicited muoh laughter aud applause.
Mr. Cunningham continued at considerable length, but we are forced to
condense. He was in favor of making
this the agricultural centre of the
mainland, and was sound ou Btreet improvements, sewerage and other questions.
Mr. Ovens waa loudly called and applauded, and said: "Mr. Mayor and
gentlemon, I think thero is very little
left for mo to say. You havo read my
address; that is my pliitionn nnd 1
stand by it. Aa to whether 1 am
sound on the railway, the citizens'
bond will tell that; I am down on that
bond for 81,000. (Applause). Progress is my motto. I am in favor of
having water—(A voico—'Very little
water will do you, Tom.'—immoderate
laughter) works, and will do my best
to obtain this and other necessary improvements. If eleoted, I will do all
that my humble endeavors can accomplish for you."
Mr. Townsend was next called
upon. He said: "I have not come
prepared with a speech, but I can tell
you that if you choose to elect me I
will do my very best for tho city. I
am not awfully anxious to be elected,
but it is time that some one took hold
to see that all tho money does not go
into the hands of the lawyers. I do
not know what you have had, as I
came in late (a voico—'We have had
plenty'—laughter). We want sidewalks
and other things. I am going to do
my best. If you elect me, I will do
my vory best to see that the f nnda are
devoted to the best purposes. (Applause).
Mr. Reid was then called. "Make
it short," exclaimed a voice from the
audience. Mr. Reid said: "That is
first what I am going to do, I am in
favor of doing all I can for the railway. One of the first things that 1
will advocate is the preparing of exhibition and recreation grounds, aud it
wants to be dono early—the first thing
ln the tyring. (Applause.) Streets
and sidewalks are the most important
things that wo want in this town today. I know dozens of men, young
fellows, that would buy lots and build
houses, if more streets woro opened
out. The market is a very important
thing; the business men of this town
have lost by not having a market before. Wo are naturally the centre of
this district, and should not lose any
of our advantages. I believe in encouraging manufacturing industries, as
they help to build up a town. I am
in favor of doing something to get a
flouring mill here. Waterworks and
sewers are very important matters.
Thoy will require careful consideration. 1 do not believe they can be
taken up this year. It is a fact that
we want waterworks and sewers, but
we must not go too rash, If you elect
me, I will do all I can to advance the
interests of this town."
Mr. MoPhaden came forward in
answer to calls from the audience, and
said : "I won't occupy your time tonight. I am solid .on tho railway
?uestion. (Applause), Furthermore,
am convinced tbat tho water-works
are of great importance and should be
taken up immediately—the sewera
later on. I think we should strain a
point this yonr to get tho exhibition
grounds put in good shape. We may
not have an opportunity very soon
again to havo the provincial exhibition
here, and we should mako it a grand
success. (Applause). Streets and
sidewalks are badly neoded to bring
the business portions nf the town
nearer to the business centre. If
elected, I shall work to tho best of my
ability and judgment iu the interests
of the city.   (Applause).
The mayor here read a noto * from
Mr. Calbick, one of the candidates, regretting that he could not be at tho
meeting, on account of sickness in his
family.
Mr, Curtis was recalled and said:
"A pamphlet has been circulated by
the 'Injunctors' in whioh aro some
wonderful figures, but theso figures
aro not facts. Our good friend Mr.
Lord would have it that they are correct and we cannot get round them,
and though I confess to their correctness I will show you the absurdity of
such figuring. (1). The writer of tbe
pamphlet says thore is no provision
made for the redemption of the debentures, but I want to tell you that the
redemption clause could not have been
drawn any otber way, and that aa it
stands the city has amplo protection.
(2). The writer of the pamphlet says
the lawyers will tell you that the rate
can be ehanged to suit the circumstance*, and ho goes on to say: 'The
council has just as legal a right to
change clause 1 as to change clauses
3,4 and 5 of the bonus by-law, and if
they have a right to change either thoy
have a right to wipe them out altogether.'"' Mr. Curtis here read a
clause in the new charter showing
wherein the council his a right to
change the fixed rate as circumstances
justify. Continuing, Mr. Curtis said:
"No doubt the writer referred to
thought he was miking a great point
against the railway when be laid before you this array of figures. I want
to prove to you to-night that othen
are capable of figuring fully as pro*
digally as he. In the first place, to
show you the result of suoh calculations take our assessment roll of last
year of 8862,511 and assume the real
value of real estate to bo $1,000,000
and an increase of 20 por cent, ns soon
as the railway is finished, for it certainly will increase to that amount.
This would give ub $1,250,000 value of
land to assess. Take the 8250,000
and invest it every 0 months at. G per
cent., 50 years, compound interest and
you got what ? 8138,720,000. What a
rich community we would bel Again
take the 83,000 anuual sinking fund,
invest every year at 6 percent, for 24
years and we get 8152,446—or 82,446
more than is required to redeem the
whole of the debentures. For exam*
pie take an individual lot worth to-day
8200; with railway an advance of 25
per oent., or 850 on the lot. If that
profit on the lot, 850, wore invested every 6 months for 60 years at 6 per
cent, that man would be worth $138, -
620 and still have the lot loft. During
that 50 years he would pay taxes on
said lot to tho amount of 8110,896.
Deduct this from his 850 investment
and you have a surplus of 827,724 to
get married on. How the increase
of assessable property will affect us this
year, I will endeavor to show you. The
present assessment roll is $802,511;
area of land to bo taken in under now
oharter 400 aores; deduct 80 acres for
streets to be mado by owners in subdividing and we havo left 320 acres estimated at 8500 per acre giveB 8100,-
000. To this add the increase of land
only within the old limits sinco the
last assessment, say 25 per cent,, and
you have 8215,628, thus giving tho city
an extra amount of real estate to assess of 8375,028, saying nothing of the
certain increase on land in years to
come. In this way the railway debenture rate will be reduced from 14 mills
to 9| mills during the present year,"
(Great applause and cheering).
Mayor Dickinson, in response to
appeals from the audience, said: "Tho
gentlemen you hnye hoard this evening have made great promises and no
doubt will carry thom out if possible.
But where is tho money to come from
to carry out all these schemes ? Our
revenue is only a paltry 810,000. We
are assessed at 8802,000, while our Bister city is assessed at something over
83,000,000. Our system of taxation
must bo changed. Thero is oue property owner in Westminster who has a
monthly income of 8250 from his buildings rented and on whioh he pays not
one cent taxes, while the poor working-
men are taxed to pay their share of
the city's expenditure. Now, gentlemen, I ask you is this right 1 (Cries
of no, no). To you workingmen I appeal to give a solid vote on Monday so
that the large property owners of the
front of the town may be taxed to build
up the back pnrt of the town. (Tro*
mendouB cheering).
Frantic cries were made for Mr. J.
C. Armstrong, who finally took the
platform. He thought that if the
fifteenth part of tho promises made by
the candidates wero carried out Westminster would bo rapping at Vancouver's back door before the ond of tho
year, The promises made by each candidate wero so liberal that were such a
thing possible ho would vote for the
whole sixteen. He hoped the city
would once again pull together as it
did at tho old drill shed when the C.P.
R, scheme was beforo the people.
Mr. Hendry was enthusiastically
called for and responded briefly. "The
candidates," he said, "have covered the
ground so well that thero is nothing
left for me to Bay. You .Ami
know my sentiments in regard to the city's progress, and
you know that I will do all within my
power to advanoe its best interests.
Water, sewerage and railway matters
will have my hearty support as will al*
bo all. matters of importance to the
oity. The questions under discussion
this evening have been woll ventilated
and now I will nsk you to elect such
mon on Monday as will, in your belief,
best sorvo the city's interests. For
my part I will endeavor to perform
faithfully the duties of the high office
to which you have eloctod me, and
when my term is finished I trust to
hold your respect and esteem the same
as I do to-night.   (Great applause).
Col. McGregor was called on and
said: "Although it would always afford mo much pleasure to be of service
to you, I am not seeking election to
tho council board just now—perhaps I
never will—and even if I were 1
scarcely think that it would be necessary for mo to to express my viows
with respect to the Southern Railway;
the most of you know them pretty
well. I trust that you will show your
wisdom at tho polls, and elect the moat
faithful and progressive mon. Do not
canvas to-morrow, but bo up beforo the
lark on Monday morning and, in the
figurative language of an illustrious
North Briton, "Light a fire on all the
littlo bills."
The meeting thon adjourned."
PUBLIO   OPINION
«lvi_  Excellent Medicine to Electors,
Nun-I'lcctori, and Others.
Under this style Publio Opinion haa
at various times during the lut two
monthi addressed pertinent remarks
to candidates, would-be candidates,
aud injunotors; plainly setting forth
the neoded improvements and the
wants uf tho city, directing the candidates as to their courso, it they wish
to lit in tho council chamber, and
forcibly bringing homo to the injunotors the actual poiition they are in-
defeated. And now we propose to
mike a few utterances and assertions
to electors and non-electors. First,
then, to tho electors: Excitement at'
a crisis like the present runs high, and
while you, in the heat of the contest,
might be influenced by parties who
would fain save the strain upon your
pockets as taxpayers, you must remember your duty as citizens to your
oity and families; that you have to
lay the foundation upon whioh shall
rise to eminence the prosperity of our
oity, and, if you should not reap the
benefit, your children will. You must
not quietly remain at homo to-day, not
oaring how things go, or • feeling indifferent as to whether things are
ohanged or not You owe your correct
vote In the interest, not only of yourself, but of future generations. Then
comes up from every part of the oity a
continual ory for a never-failing sup*
Sly of pure water, and equally urgent
i the necessity for a thorough system
of drainage, in whioh disease cannot
lurk ready to seize the populace unawares and carry bright memben of
families and society to the tomb. Your
natural resources of trade of the fertile valley of the Fraser muat be conserved, a market established to transact the business of thoso who como
irom above nnd below the oity to vend
their produce, and, jointly with this,
a counoil ohamber and offices appertaining to a city hall must be built;
so that we can always have a place in
whioh to hold not only buiineu meet
ing! of the council but ratepayen1
meetings as well. Then, it is no uso
getting up in ohurch meetings and bewailing that the boys and young men
of the city are frequenting saloons, or
ore enticed thore by the more convivial-
surroundings than you have given
thom : it is for you to see that the
men you vote for will aid in establishing public recreation grounds, where
their manhood may be strengthened,
nnd a pleasant public library and reading room, light, airy, comfortable and
enticing, whero their minds may bo
improved. You ciunot—you must
not—plead that you have done without all these things. Your forefathers
did without the steam engine and
electricity ; you would be in a lorry
pickle without them to-day, and you
cannot afford to drive the rising generation away to cities where they can
have these, their rights, supplied to
them. See to it that eaoh candidate
yon vote for promises this recreation
ground and publio library. And then
think of the humiliation of having to
direct a stranger to two streets baok
of Mr, So-and-so's, or opposito or noxt
door to Mr. So-and-so's, instead of to
No. 37 or 38 Mary or Columbia Btreet
—don't forget this important item—
and then, laat bdt not leut, whilo the
question that interests us moat is
practically settled, aee that you vote
for no man who did not think enough
of the interests of the city to sign the
citizen's bond to the railway company ;
becauso, if they will shirk their
duty in, this, they will shirk thoir
duty and play will your interests
in tho council, if you mako the unfortunate mistake to olect them to a soat
therein,   take cake you no not spoil
YOUK  BALLOT   PAPER !    VOTE   EARLY 1
votb right 1 Help thoso who are
aged or infirm to the poll; call to the
city those whom you know to be away,
ao that they may exercise their franchise. Don't vote for tho man who,
at the last moment, wants to take the
popular view of things; tell him, plainly, you see his little gamo. See that
no moss or cobwebs are hanging to the
coat collar of the man wishing your
voto—if thero is, don't vote for him.
And, now, don't let your interest in
the right lead you to commit a breach
of the peace, no matter how you are
taunted; these tactics will be tried as a
last forlorn hope by thoso who would
havo the city retrogade. Now a few
words to non-electors. You who have
failed to seo your names placed upon
the voters' list, see to it that you are
not left in this predicament at another
election, ion who are tenants, and
cannot under the existing charter,
vote, see that you use every legitimate means to havo the franchise extended, so that you, who have to produce the wherewithal, may have the
right enjoyed by tenants in any other
oity and have tho power to vote in
January next, nnd at this election use
your influence to elect a "progress
party;" you can do a great deal; do it;
for, in the prosperity of the city, lies
your chances of prosperity and the
possibility of becoming property owners, instead of, for want of trado, your
having to search anew for employment
and a home for your families. And
now, you youug fellows, you have a
claim upon the city fathers; they want
to soo you rise up strong in business
pursuits, morally, intellectually, and
physically able to carry on tho business
many of them have founded. Watch
the events as they are passing now,
cling to the ideas arising out of this
struggle for progress, so that when
you become old enough and stable
enough to handle civic affairs your experience now gained may help you and
as you have present needs, of the
recreation ground and library, make
your relatives and friends who have
votes promise only to support those
men who will save you the humiliation
of having to contest for athletic honors
on the macadamized Columbia street,
or of holding convene on tho street
corners. Your future prosperity lies
in what is done at the poll to-day;
make your friends lay the sure foundation to that prosperity.

As regards railway matters, I am

Ladies and Gentlemen,—
Having allowed my name to be placed
ln nomination as a candidate for Alderman, I deem It proper to acquaint tbe
electors with my views and Intentions on
a few of tbe more important questions
affecting tho city's Interests.
I will, If eleoted, support tbe Southern

at the some time, that the city's Interests
demand that thia enterprise should be
pushed without delay.
I believe the new counoil should deem
It neceuary to devise and lay the foundation of some scheme to secure to the oity
waterworks to be owned by the oity, and
also a thorough system of sewerage,
I shall endeavor to give all questions
arising with regard to our municipal affairs a careful consideration before voting

Hominy Evening, Jan. 31, 1889.
We are glad to observe that popular sentiment in this city is running decidedly in favor of the new
(to this town) style of taxation—
taxing permanent improvements ns
well as real property. This, too, in
spite of pronounced opposition on
tho part of a few. In an article
on the subject in last Friday's
COLUMBIAN we endeavored, and, we
believe, with some success, to show
the perfect reasonableness and equality of taxing improvements, as
against our present antiquated nnd
unfair system, as well as tho benefits certain to aceruo to the city
from the adoption of so sensible a
measure. We honestly believe that
not even the Southern Railway
itself will prove a greater boon and
means of advancement to this oity
than the new basis of assessment
which will soon be in operation.
Abroad, our credit will be greatly
enhanced, or, more strictly perhaps,
raised to a level commensurate with
our real status as a city. Tho results of this desirable end being
attained will bo very appreciably
and speedily realized in increased
attention, capital and population
being attracted to this field. In
the city, the beneficent effects of
tho change will bo none the less
apparent. The municipal revenue
of tho city will be considerably increased in tho first place. In
judicious hands, tins will react almost immediately in stimulating
the advancement and prosperity of
the city. Then, property owning
and buildins* on the part of the
working men and those in moderate
circumstances will bn encouraged
because thn burden of taxation
will be i-qunliJMl and the increased
municipal revenue will enable the
city to open up streets and sidewalks where none now exist. The
largest reproductive property owners, those who consequently pay
the greatest il mount in taxation,
will reap the most liberal share in
the general prosperity, on account
of the speedy doubling tip in value
of their property. Altogether, every
citizen, in whatever circumstances,
has reason to view with satisfaction
mo _<_it-i..*' .-..iw.... t-i—v I*, u* uume
into operation so soon with respect
to our municipal taxation.
The statistics of our fisheries, A*c,
published in The Oolumdiak a few
weeks ago have already borne fruit,
bv being copied into American and
other papers. An American exchange introduces the subject as
follows: "It is generally supposed
that our near neighbors, the British
Columbians, ore very slow people
who will never amount to very much
until they join in the great American procession. This is not entirely
the case. They manifest much enterprise, and are developing their
fine natural resources with great
success. Tlie fishing interest is one
of their principal industries. They
expected to pack 200,000 cases of
salmon in 1888, but had bad luck,
and only secured 70,000 cases. This
is the second season of failure. They
hope, however, to do better this
year. One thing they did do in
1888 which is very important. They
developed a new industry, and are
now tnking black cod aud halibut
from deep water. The business
promises to expand to very large
proportions. Much capital is invested in salmon packing."
China's first railway, between
Yientsin and Youngshan, hns now
been in operation about threo
months. It is eighty-one miles
long, nnd most of the way the track
is laid on embankments eight feet
high for protection from inundation,
Tho company is comprised of Chinese
officials, and an English engineer
hod charge of the construction, and
tho bridges and rolling stock are
mostly of American manufacture or
design. The road cost less than
$0,000 a mile notwithstanding the
heavy earthwork, and notwithstanding low fares and freights, the enterprise promises to be very remunerative. The Chinese, at first much
prejudiced against the road, have
already discovered its advantages
and uso it freely. Li Hung Chang
is greatly interested iu it and expects to obtain the imperial sanction
for ita extension to Tungchow, fifteen miles from Peking, during this
year, although there is much oppo
Bition in some conservative circles.
Japan is building railroads rapidly,
and now that China has turned the
first sod, further progress is almost
assured. The railroad there, as
everywhere, oannot fail to effect
great industrial changes. The dense
population and cheap scale of living
will make freights and fares proportionate, and whotever China has
to sell will be landed at tide-water
on the lowest terms, In India
wbloh il naturally ai conservative
aa China, English skill and capital
hlive already established cotton,
jute and other manufactures which
are competing with American and
European goods in Oriental market!.   Some of the ablest and most
influential meu of China are now
advocating tho naturalization thero
of foreign manufactures, but they
propose to do it with Chinese capital and to become independent of
foreign skill as soon as possible. The
Chinaman never divides with an
outsider, except temporarily to effect some ulterior purpose. When
China fairly starts on the road on
which India and Japan nre already
moving, American and European
economists will have some new problems to solve.    '
Our American neighbors are evidently looking forward tb the time
when, after having "assimilated"
the whole of America—North, Central and South — they will, like
Alexander, weep because there are
no more worlds to conquer. They
don't fancy the "weeping" business,
however, and are preparing to survey, with the viow of annexing, ono
by one, the nearest heavenly bodies.
To this end, they are improving
their telescopes, regardless of expense. Representative Butler, of
Tennessee, says the New York Sun,
has introduced a bill in Congress
to appropriate $1,000,000 to bo expended, under the direction of the
secretary of the navy, in the construction of a great telescope with a
lens GO inches, or 5 feet, in diameter. Tlie diameter of the Lick
object glass, the largest in the
world, is 36 inches. In view of
the fact that many astronomers regarded the success of the great Onli-
forninn telescope as more than
problematical, on account of the
difficulty of casting and figuring
such huge disks of glass, Mr. Butler's proposition is decidedly startling. But it should be remembered
that, thanks to the success of the
Paris glass makers and the incomparable skill of the groat American
telescope makers, the Clarks, tho
Lick lens has turned out to be so
perfect that the croakers havo been
siletfeed, nnd wonder has taken tho
place of doubt. While it would undoubtedly bean achievement thut
would tax to the utmost tho skill
and experience of the artisans and
artists who should undertake the
work, yet it cannot be said that the
construction of a telescopic object
glass of GO inches diamoter is impossible. Sucli a glass, if successfully made, would be a much greater
improvement over tho Lick telescope than that great instrument
was over tho largest of its predecessors. To show this it is only
necessary to remember t lm t the
light gathering power of nn object
glass varies as tho square of its diameter. Tlie largest glass beforo
the completion of the Lick lens was
the 30 inch telescope of the observatory of Pulkowa. The light gathering power of the Lick telescopo is to
that at Pulkowa about 13 to 9, or
one and a half times as great j but
the power of a CO inch lens would
be to that of the Lick telescope as
36 to 13, or nearly three times as
great. Such a glass would be four

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Elector* of New Westminster City:
Ladies and .Gentlemen,—
At tlie request of a number of friends I
have consented to plnco mv name iu
nomination for the position of ,-tldermnn
at the coming election, fully realizing the
Import mice and duties of the oftlca. If
elected I will endeavor to the best of mv
ability, to place our city In the front rank
of the cities of B, C. Tlio following important questions will lmve my careful
uttentton:
1. Railway,—I will use overy legitimate
means In my power to bring to a successful termination the building and completion of theSoutuera Railroad, und will
treat liberally any projected railway
which may wish to run into our city,
always carefully guarding the best, Intel csis of the eity. And ills my opinion
If wo are truo to ourselves nnd bury any
little differences that may exist and work
shoulder to shoulder, we can make New
WeBtmlnster tho greatest rnllway center
and most Important city between Seattle
and Alaska.
2. Watek Supply.—I am In favor of the
city owning Its own waterworks, for there
Is a very largo revenue to bo derived from
this source, if properly conducted, nnd, If
elected, 1 will at once take up th is question
and deal with It on business principles,
Water rale debentures when Issued, Dear
their own vnlue and will not be one dollar's tax on the ratepayers.
3. SEWEnAQE.—This Is ono of tho most
import mit questions thnt the new cnunell
will have to ijrapple with, and, as there Is
bound in boa large emigration here this
your, It behooves ns to bo nl.vo and got
our city well advum-cd sons to keep nwav
those(ircntldlsoaBBH.whicli wl* so mercf-
(ullyescapi'd Inst.venr. And I hnve no
doubt If you . led. llie right, men a sehemo
can tie f-ni, ii[i whereby tho cily can lm
properly smi'i red. and lite revenue derived
from He.'snle of water be mude to pnv the
Inicfc.-ui.iHl sinking fund for both water
works and sewerage.
■1. StueI'.ts—Something must ho dono
ntoncolo open up all streets in the cily
so ns to wive workingmen and moolianlca
ii eli-niee to gel tutlielr lotsand buildings,
and, 1/elected I will give Mils subject mv
itnreful attention and honrty support.
able cily hull, and If tin! .finances of tho
eity will allow It, I will give It my warmest support.
0. Street LtfliniNO.—I will favor the
extending and Improving of our system of
street I Ightlug, for there is no doubt it will
stand considerable Improvement.
7. Pahk.—In order to mako the coming
Rural show a success we muat put a
ponton of the eity pnrfc In a fit. eo^QtUtn
min suitable tu'lldtngB, etc if iwSw t
will do my best to make the grounds ft
credit to the royal city. I am also ln favor
of rempvlnr* thn it»7<*-ht*.j- atu-Mps on
Aloort Orescent and planting n few shndc
trees to replace the stumps. Nature Iiob
dono much for our oity und it only wants
touching up a littlo to make it perfect,
8. PunLio LinnAiiY.—Thero Is no doubt
n new building Is wanted to replace tho
delnpldated ono now occupying a valuable lot, nnd thoro Is no doubt In my mind,
but that a suitable one could bo erected
with stores underneath audllbrnryabovo;
nnd the rents from snld stores would more
than pay for Interest and sinking fund,
and leave n balance for keeping the libra*
ry in proper condition.
0. Manufacturers.—I will encourage
any manufacturers that contemplate starting business In this city, treating them
Inn liberal manner, and will use every
eflbrt to show them the advantage of doing
business here. It is well known that manufactures aro tbe backbone of any city.
10. Communications.—I will urge upon
our representative tho necessity of the
Dominion government subsidizing a'dally
boat between bore and Kiehmond and
nlso between hero and Ladners Landing.
Wo must also got better connections with
the surrounding district.
11, Letterboxes.—I will also endeavor
to huvo the postal authorities supply und
put ln place letter boxes ln the suburbs
of tho city.
12.1 will also urge on our city member
the necessity of having tho local government place u sum of money ln this year's
estimates to put the North Arm rond iu a
fit condition fur travel.
18. STREET NAMINO AND NUMBERING.—
If elected I will urgo upon my colleagues tbo noccsslty of having our Btreets
properlynamed and buildings numbered,
as Is always done In well-regulated cities.
In fact, any project thnt may be brought
up for advancing the Interests of tho city
will liavo myi -ireful attention and hearty
support.
I remain,
Your Obedient Servant,
R S. SCOULLAR.

The tJHtli.crin**- of Corn as It Used to Bain
the Days Before the War-Melodious
Negro Sungi-Xtooklng for tho Lait
Eur on tho Field,
"Did you ever haul up corn with a yoke
of oxen?" nuked Pluiikett, as, according to
the Atlanta Coiutttutfon, ho lit his pipe and
took his scat in the corner,
"Uathc ring corn with oxen hain't no easy
job," continued the old man, ai he settled
back in his rocker. "You have to jerk and
haw nnd gee to keep 'cm from pulling their
necks off stretching out for eating on each
side, and tlie man that can drive 'em under
hucIi circumstances and not cubs laado-
Harving nian for sure. I've boen driving
for Lln; boys to-day and iny old bones acho
mut my throat is sore from jerking and
wliodjiiug, and thou, besides, corn-gathering time is not what it used to be, and it
don't bring tbe frolic and fun of the shucking like It used to; but I don't say a word,'
for I know if I did some of these youngsters
would say -the old man's liver hain't
flopped,' so I just grin and bear it and com*
fort myself by thinking of tho days when
I wus young and of the good times we had
then. va    ■ »<*
"Corn-gathering then was a frolic, for
we knowed tbat a good time was coming.
The corn wasn't throwed in tho orlb in
thom days, hut a big pile was mado in tho
lot uud then the night was Bet for a shuck*,
ing and the settlement gathered in—whito
and black—and the corn was shucked, put
in the crib and the shucks penned all in ono
night I've seed a pllo of three thousand
bushels shucked and put up in one night,
and thore wasn't a tiard person in the
crowd, for thero was fun and frolic aad
songs and dances, and there was 'looking
for the last ear' before anybody knowed it,
"Them old shucking- are things of the
past, but the generatfona to come will never
foost on melodies sweeter than tbe nigger
songs of tho old corn-shucking days. I've
sat ut night and listened to the crowds as
EGYPTIAN  WOMEN.
J.Vri.lluiiUipp* of Thulr Looks, Dress, Manners ami Customs.
ln youth the women oi Egypt, write, a
correspondent of -Truth, generally have
lovely forma—plump, supple and elegant.
An excess of flesh is rare among tbem.
Graceful curves, an upright carriage and
finely-molded hands and feet are common
characteristics. Their faces, too, arc usually pleasing and often beautiful, with tho
richly-tinted softness of the south. So sweet
Is the expression of these faces, so bewitching are ttie glances of their dark eyes, that
an experienced traveler deolares they are
tho most perfect women in the world.
The eye.; of nearly all are large, black and
almond-shaped; their soft expression, still
further heightened by long'lashes and tho
universal use of "kohl," with which they
blacken the edges of the lids. They lmve
oval races, sometimes a littlo broad, mul
clear olive complexions. The lips are usually quite full; tlie nose is straight,though a
littlo wide. Glossy black hair, with eyebrows that form a lovely arch, complete tlie
features of these Birens, famed since Cleopatra for their beguiling beauty.
They dross the hair in an elaborate fashion. It is eut short over the forehead, hut
on either side of the faco hangs a full lock,
often curled or braided, Tho rest cf ihe
hair is arranged lu numerous braids, usual-
ly from eleven to twenty-five, but always
an odd number. Three black silk curds
bearing little ornaments of gold are generally fastened to each braid, hanging
down the hack in a glittering shower. The
bend-drcss is a complex arrangement. It
consists of a kind of turban, round which is
commonly .bound a gay kerchief or [along
strip of muslin folded into a narrow band.
The latter is usually black or rose-toiorcd.
The centrul part Ih ornamented for several
inches with spangles that fall over tlie forehead, while the ends are deeked with a gay
edging, and tassels of colored silks above
which a few more spangles are sown. On
the crown of the head-dress is worn a round
convex Ornament called the "kurs." It is
about fivo inches in diameter and as costly
ns the wearer can afford. Wealthy ladies,
and oven the wives of some small tradesmen, wear those composed of diamonds set
In gold. Others wear a simple golden
kurs, silver being seldom seen, even among
servants.  The head-vail consists of a long
they wore on thoir way to tho corn _
They always wont in crowds and had their
leaders, and tho young masters would go „_,,,„„_ .llu,lv,„.,Btl„ulll,l,„l „ ,_..„
along to protect them and thoy felt ae free ' piec_ of whito muslin embroidored at qach
and grand as they havo over felt since tho cnd with coIored m and ld ._;., ^^
war, and thero has never been a gang of c,.cpo ornamonted with gold thread and
spangles.    This Is drawn well forward
since-tho-war niggers that were near so
happy ns those crowds as they went across
tho fields singing:
" Old maass Rive me holloday,
He says he'll give mo moro;
I thanked him vary kindly,
As I shoved my boat from shore.
Oh, my dearest May I
You're lovely as the day,
Your oyes so bright
They shine at night,
When tho moon has gone away.
And then over on tbo river you'd hear tho
big chain lumber on the bottom of tho ferryboat, and as tho ferryman pulled out from
shore you'd hear fifty voices of another
crowd join in thu chorus and sing:
-   " Then row away, row,
O'er the waters so blue,
Like a feather we'll float.
In our gum-tree canoo.
"But the climax was at tho corn pile.
With two or three hundred niggers at tho
foot of acorn pile as big as a houso a
'loader' would mount on top and start off
with,
upon tlie head, while the long ends hung
down behind nearly to the ground. Tlio
face-vail, ul ways worn in public, is a simple
strip of white muslin fastened just below
the eyes, from which it falls nearly to tho
foot. It completely hides all the features
except the eyes, but as theso aro commonly
the greatest beauty of tho women, It servos
rather to heighten admiration than to
quell it,
MEN'S   IMAGINATION.
Incidents Illustrating the Influence of the
'Hind on the Body*
General de Trobriand, in his book'"The
Army of the Potomac," relates many incidents illustrating the influence of Imagination. One poor fellow believed he had a
ball in tho bead, and prepared to die on account of it. He died. Another with his
eye gone and his eyebrows burned off
thought nothing was tho matter.: Another
I will start tho holler,' and tho rest  instance was that of a surgeon who had
would come in with, iluglelo.' It ran thus
"'I will start the hollerl
'Buglelol'
•I will start the hO-lorl'
'Buglelol'
■Oh, don't you hear me hollerl
'Buglelol'
■Massa'sgot a buglet'
'Buglelol1
'A ten-cent buglQ I'
*     'Buglolol'"
" And on and on that leader would'call'
aud the   crowd would answer till they
would want a change, which was indicated
by throwing corn at the 'caller/ and il
never failed to bring him down, and then
another leader would mount tho pile nnd
he'd have something on the same style, but
never tho same tune. And thus the night
would wear along and the pile of unshucked
com diminish.   The lively timo would bo
whon the pile begin to grow small and they'd
begin to yell:
" 'Looking for the last carl'
'Bangainalnngor
'Looking for tlio Inst earl'
'BanRSinalango!1
'Hound up tho corn, boys j*
'Baugamnlangol'
'Hound up the corn pilo I'
- 'Bangam-lnngot1
"Then thoro was scrambling, for tho work

had been a man of luxurious habits. He
found himself living without firo in a tent
covered with snow. Ho sought to make
himself comfortable by making a fire iu tlio
open air and toasting ono side while tho
other froze. He could not get used to Iho
meager fare and no bed of the camp. Uut
the roaring of cannon ended his career. He
became livid, trembling like n lenf; he
shook at each detonation and seemed about
to lose his legs. "I am a dead man," tie at
Inst exclaimed ns if actually shot. "1 must
go away or I nm a dead man." And thero
had not beon a shot anywhere near the division. He had to be carried to a hospital
and discharged. At Gettysburg a color-
bearer staggered and tell back. "Sternly,"
colled the Colonel, "I am wounded," ho replied inn choking voice. "WhereI" "Iii
tho throat." Tho commander leaned over
his horse and looked. "It is nothing. I see
no blood." He immediately rotook his place,
raising up his flog. The ball had really
struck him In tho neck but bounded off his
leather collar, and the shook had choked
him for n moment.
On tho dawn of the day aftor Gettysburg

Vho Meddler,
| Whenever madam added fo her list ot
friends an eligible young man, she set
about finding a girl who could amuse
bim, and keep linn within her circle;
■*■**■*■*■■■ but no sooner did the two young persons
become mutually interested, than Bhe
changed her manner and did all that sho
could to separate them, Itwould seem
that she considered courtship rather
than matrimony the climax of earthly
bliss, nnd that, consequently, she en*
deavored to prevent marriage whenever
the was able, not only because it wag
lomething she could not conscientiously
recommend, but also because the fewer

It Was a Pretty Foot. '
The funniest incident of my trip was In a
sleeping-car, writes "Gath" in the Cincinnati Enquirer. It was in tho morning, when
most of the passengers had got out of their
berths,and only several sots of curtains wore
drawn tightly in front of stilt slumberous
persons. Suddenly a foot was thrust out
between two curtains. It was small, white
and symmetrical—ho more than a feminine
No. 3-and the merest bit of ankle in sight
looked soft and fine. The men glanced ut it
from the comers of their wicked eyes. The
women deprecated tho exposure. Then a
bold, brazen fellow went right straight to
tho pretty foot, grabbed tho ankle uud
flung tho wholo member rudely into the
berth.
"Ho wouldn't treat his bride so," said a
woman close by,  "It must bo hlssiBtcr."
Then tha head of a ten-year-old urchin
emerged whore tbe foot bad boon, and a
sleepy, angry, boyish voice said: "Look
here, Sam, you let mo alone. Next timo
you ketch a hold of my foot that, way I'll
kick the glznrd out of you."
There was a subsidence of sentimental
intereat and a risibility of mirth.

scribed, expended, but unfortunately
through bad mansgement, the wholo
thing, so far, has proved a failure.

of the property holders aro still determined to make the scheme a success

William Henry Jones, who was
hanged in British Columbia on the 8th
inst., fur the murder of Edward Durant, ought to have been prudent
enough to have quarreled with his
victim and killed him in the United
States. In tho United States this
would havo boen manslaughter, and in
many states of tho south, this murderer would havo been acquitted. William Henry Jones ought to have
crossed the line to "get in his work;"

Tho proposal to bum tho manager
of the Colonist in effigy would havo
been acted upon but for the advice of
Mayor Grant and a number of his lending supporters, who counselled moderation, and nutted the moro enthusiastic
to abstain from any demonstration
that might be taken by the other stde
as offensive. But the proposal became
current and reached the ears uf the
person whose image was to be cremated
and becoming alarmed he called upon
the polico fur protection. iNo elligy,
however, was burned, and the services
uf tho police were not required. The
best of urder and good will prevailed
after the result was known.—-Times.

Never in the history of Westminster
was an election contest so enthusiastically fought as to-day. To say that
all were intorested in the fight, "prog*
ross vs. non-prugreBS," conveys no
proper meaning uf tho situation fur
overyono was enthusiastic and earnest
to the last degree. Although tho "popular party" was certain uf electing tho
majority of its ticket yet no efforts
wero abandoned to make tho victory
as complete as possible. All the candidates and tho various committees
wore at work bright and early, and
when the pull opened at 9 o'clock a
largo number of voters wero on hand
to name their favorites. Frum the
first the voting proceeded briskly and
by 1 o'clock 50 per cent, of
the names on the voters' list had
been polled. On the streets everything was bustle and excitement,
A largo number uf cabs and carriages wero pressed into service
tu bring in tho outside voters, aud theso rattling along the
streets at a high rate of spertl added
to the general bustle uf the occasion.
Soveral spicy discussions took placo on
the streets betwoen friends uf contending parties which nffurdod great amusement to the crowds which rapidly
formed to hear the fun. Whenever a
candidate would pass a knot of people a
rousing cheer wuuld go up, nnd this
was especially noticeable with Mr. Lord
who received n sarcastic ovation where-
ever ho wont. But evorthing passed
off in a friendly way and the cindidates
seemed to enjoy tho fun as well aB anyone else. Though the light was keen
throughout, the best of feeling prevailed and there waa a most noticeable
absence of anything approaching bitterness between the contestants. Early
in the forenoon a ticket containing the
names of "Independent Candidates"
was circulated, leaving out Mr. H. V,
Edmonds' name. Shortly afterwards
tho "Independents" gathored up the
tickets and destroyed tbem and later
issued another containing tho full list.
Fully a dozen Vnncouverites nrrived
by the 11.20 train aud worked and
voted in favor of tho "popular ticket"
as did also a number of gentlemen
from down river points. Among tho
lattor was W. H. Ladner M. P. P.
Mr. S. 11. Webb was seen rolling a
baby carriage up and down ir. front uf
tho polling booth whilo a lady wsb
casting her vote. It is safe to say Mr.
Webb received a "plumper" for his
gallantry. Tho wuuld bo alderman
received tho applause of tho crowd
with becoming modesty.

THE CHURCHES.
The "Good News" as Expounded In Our
Churches Yesterday.
The services at the Baptist church
yesterday were conducted by Mr.
Rasuro, the cowboy evangelist, and
Mr. Chamberlain, Canadian evangelist.
At both services the instruction was
given by Mr. Rasure. In the evening
he read the 55th chap, of Isaiah, inter*
cepting the verses with extended
comments in whioh he related feelingly
many personal experiences and tried
tu impress upun his ■■ hearers the
benevolence and protection of God in
the free salvation and reminded the
young men that God would take care
of their bodily interests and health if
they consecrated themselves to him,
and snapping his fingers several times
said he would not give that for a God
that would nut protect and save the
body ns well as the soul, which the
Rov. Mr. Baldwin afterwards emphasized very strongly, graphically do-
scribing the cowboy life—and reminding those present that the meetings
would be continued by the evangelists
from Tuesday to Friday evening in
the basement of the church. Mr.
Rasure though not a great orator has
a terse, mutter of fact and interesting
manner of speaking, and attracts and
holds tho attention of his audience
throughout.
Mr. Chamberlain conducted tho
testimony meeting and after asking all
Christians to stand, asked thoae who
wishod to bo Christians to stand to
which three persons responded. Somo
of tho brightest nnd best of the songs
from Moody's collection, No, 5, wero
sung, the service being concluded by
Mr. Baldwin, tho pastor, pronouncing
the benediction.
At St. Andrew's Prcsbytorian ohuroh
Inst night, Rev. Mr. Scouler preached
from 1st Theasalonians, 5 c. 10 v.,
"Rejoice evermore,' and aaid: Two
Sabbath evenings ago we had for our
consideration the datkest side of the
picture of human life, as exemplified
in tho trials and the sufferings of Job.
As there nre always two Bides to every
question, we propose to look at the
brighter side to-night, ss suggested
by tho words of our text. I need
hardly Bay that theso wurds apply to
thoso who are tho people of God.
Christians only are in a position (o rejoice overmore; for how can the wicked under any circumstances rejoice;
they are living at enmity against God;
there is no peace in their minds. The
ungodly charge tho religion of Jesus
Christ with being gloomy and melancholy. Many for this reason have
thrown off all restraint; thoy say that
thoy want to enjoy life. There is
such a thing, it is true, as the plea*
sures of sin,but it resembles the crackling of thorns under a pot; there is
nothing left hut the sting of an accusing conscience and the memory of
time that has been worso than wasted*)
Tho Christian should seek to rejoice
evermore, first, on account cf
what God has done for the salvation of
his people. 'The Lord hath done
great things for us, whereof we are
glad,' says the Psalmist, We should
rejoice whon we think of God's kindness to us in giving Hia Son—God's
unsneakablo gift. We cannot think
of tho death of Christ aright without
,t-_-»*J___-----_-_---M-»-—»Sfci*««.«*^
being filled with joy and glad
ness. There is no reason why the
blackest sinner should uot return : and,
obtain tho forgiveness uf sin aud the
favor of God. But God has dune
inure than give His Son. We may
have thought that no moro would
have been done for man's salvation,
but moro than this was necessary, and
the Spirit was given to show man his
need of, and lead him to a Saviour.
When the Spirit came mighty results
followed, men and women were led to
embrace Christ; tho Spirit should bo
more honored. Think, then, Christian friends, uf what God has dono
for you by the Spirit; it is by
His aid that you havo been enabled to lift up your head and
rejoice in God as tho God of your salvation." Tbo speaker continued that
Christians should rejoice on account of
what God ia doing for His people and
on account of what Ho will do,
all of which was described at
length and in eloquent terms, and
tho discourse was closed in picturing
tho perfect rejoicing hereafter, when
the trials and tribulations of this life
should bo over.
At tho Reformed Episcopal church,
yesterday morning, Rev. Thomas
Haddon spoke f rem Deuteronomy 33
c, 27 v: "The eternal God is thy
refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms, and ho shall thrust out
tho enemy from before thee, and shall
say, destroy them;" and said:—ono of
our hymns says:
Ood Is n refuge of his saints
When storm of sharp distress Invade;
Hero wo can offer our complaint*):
Behold his presence with his aid.
So said one of the greatest poeta of
tho age, and David tho inspired writer
said: ' 'God is our refuge and strength;
.t very present help in trouble." Few
peoplo that did not need shelter. It
was pleasant when it rained to have
the shelter of a dwelling—at sea
amidst the rolling waves to havo tho
assurance that wo woro on a goud ship
—and in a wind storm or cyclone a
Bhelter underground was desirable—
and a palm tree and a spring of water
in tho desert was desirable. Perhaps*
a traveller journeying for djtys in crossing the desert under tho scorching
sun, with no Bpring, no rock, oi*"shade,
and nearly exhausted, yonder iu the
distance sceB a high rock and on the
shady side uf tho rock finds a spring
of water; he pitches his tent, and finds
rest and repose thore. Jesus iB a rock
of refuge to tho weary traveller in a
strange land; in him the weary traveller finds protection from temptation
and trrals, where the distressed
soul seeking for refuge can find protection from trouble. He says "I am
the bread of life;" "If any man thirst
let him come unto me and drink,"
"Come unto me all you that are weary
and aro heavy laden and I will give
you rest;" and wcget moral and spirit*
ual Bhelter in tho rock of ages; he is
our shelter in the storm. We are told
to look up—look up brother; do not
look down, all the face of nature is
lifted to tho light. Hearts aro drawn
upward. David Bays: "I will lift up
mine eyes unto the htlU from whence
cometh help." From abovo the still
email voico spoke to tbo soul, spoke
with thrilling power tu the heart ef
the sinner, and supported the pilgrim.
God is our father; and ns an earthly
father cares for and protects his children, so the Lord protects his children
of adoption. Jew and Gentile, rich
and poor—all are united in Christ.
God is a protector and provider. In
the last eruption of Vesuvius, in the
earthquakes at Charleston, in tho
storms in the east whero hundreds had
lost their lives, and in the cyclones,
fires and floods, dangers showed thick
on every side. A newspaper in reporting this pointed to tho insecurity, and
by the way ho saw the newspapers were
?letting religious. We should be thank-
ul we have a rock beneath the Christian
faith on whioh it could rest secure, I
sometimes wonder why people and professing christians becomo ao alarmed at
contagoous diseases, as in the case at
Vancouver the other day. Why, if
the civic authorities would only take
half that trouble to save the people
from moral diseases they would do a
good and great work. God protects
body and spirit; He is a sure refuge
and we should learn to trust God for
health of body as well as spirit. The
text eays, "Underneath are the ever*
lasting arma," and were mentioned as
symbols of power and strength. David
said, "His right hand and his arm hath
gotten us the victory." In God we
havo an arm on whioh to rest, to lean
on in life's distresses and troubles, a
father to the fatherless, a husband to
the widow, and whon father and
mother forsake us, ho say**, "I will
bear thee up," and he dues this in
various ways. The word cornea and
bears us up to tho haven of peace and
rest, and as the text says, will "thrust
out the enemy." If God bo with us
who shall be against us; our enemy
shall be thrust nut, who are our enemies 1 Our sin and all that tends to
stop our spiritual progress, aud death,
the last of enemies wc can overcome ;
hence tlio apostle snys, "O, Death,
where is thy sting I O, Grave, where
is thy victory 1 The reverend gentleman closed by appealing to all to come
into the fold and take refuge.    •
