The croze for whistling ninong

impossible to tell whether a girl is

to pucker. A cotemporary thinks
he ought- to givo the girl tho benefit
of the doubt.

When Handel once undertook in
a crowded church to play the dismissal on a very fine organ there,
the whole congregation became' so
entranced with delight that not an

organist came impatiently forward
and took his seat, saying, in a tone
of acknowledged superiority. "You
cannot dismiss a congregation. See
how soon I   can   disperse,   them 1"

The Jioston Journal relates a good
story of a prominent Icgnl firm in
that city, which doos a great deal of
business for a rich mercantile concern. It lately rendered a bill
which the senior partner oil the mercantile ostablishuiu-t (who was
accustomed to liberal charges)
thought was too high. He, therefore, took the bill to the law firm
and asked the chief to !..c.; it over
and seo if it wa3 all right. Tho

The Buil-ilo Express is responsible
for the following : "Why do you
speak iu such a low voico . Wo
could scarcely hear you at all in the
back pews," said a member of a
local church to a visiting clergyman
recently. "It is a clear caso of cow-
nrdice," was tho reply. "When I
tirst began to preach they called me
the shouter, because I spoko so loud.
One Sunday morning, just after 1
tinishi'd the prayer, and while the
solemn hush was still upon the
congregation, a^ littlo fellow broke
tho silence with tho question, 'Mn,
is Ood deaf I' I have never sliouted
since."
The Arizona Kicker deals thtls
leniently with an advertiser : There
is altogether too much talk about
that mistake of our popular young
druggist of tho Blue Front which
sent Col. Jim Jackson to his grave.
Col. Jim asked for quinine and got
strychnine by mistake, but there
aro a good many redeeming features.
Tlie colonel was old, lazy, and drunk
half the time, and left no one to
mourn his loss. The druggist is a
young and energetic man, who sold
out a coal yard in Chicago to come
hore and go into the drug business,
and it must be expected that ho
will mako a few mistakes in the go
off. We call attention to his liberal
manner of advertising in tlie Kicker.
Ho hits assured us that mieh a nils*

' Oi*Awa, Feb. 0 — A "hig discussion
arose in the house of commons to-day
over Sir John Macdonuld's explanations regarding the recent changes in
the cabinet.
Hon, W. Laurier in reply congratulated all the new members of the government with the exception of Hon.

territory. Mr. Laurier condemned liim
in scathint* terms.
Sir John Macdonald replied in a
vigorous speech exonerating the minister of the interior of any responsibility
connected with the trouble. Mr.
Dewdney, he explained, did not have
anything to do with the settlement of
the claims of tho half breeds. Nevertheless, Mr. Dewdney had taken the
precaution to keep tho government
posted from time to time, and if any
blame existed, it should be borne by the
government of that day.

thu government, was responsible for
the rebellion, and consequently for the

Later.—The steamer sunk is now
learned certainly to bo the Glencoe

coo tried to cross tho Lnrgeboy's bow,
and failing in this she struck the bark

the subject of the direct cause of the

which we believe to be absolutely correct, bub wo do not publish it because
it treats of affairs both delicate and
entirely private, and we hold that the

to that consideration which in similar
cases one could not deny to the humblest subject.
THE MAJOR'S EVIDENCE.
London, Feb. 7.—Major Lecaron,
alias Beach, went on with the testimony be-fore the Parnell commisB.on
to-day. Ho found it necessary to correct several statements ho mado yesterday.
AN AWFUL CRIME.

garding the ndmif__iou of certain evidence, Attorney-Gonerul Webster remarked he never prepared to sutrgost
that Parnell or other nationalist members uf parliament were personally connected with the murderous outrages

connected with murderous outrages.

NEARLY A FATAL STEP.
London, Fob. 7.—Tho report comes
from Paris that on the night before
the election, ou tho 27th ult., M. Floquet proposed to the cabinet the arrest of Gen. Buulanger as a conspirator against the republic. The majority of tho cabinet approved of the
plan, but M. DnFroycinet, minister of
war, protested against it, declaring it
would bo suro to cause bloodshed,
Tlio project was therefore given up,
Mr. Blowiti., Paris correspondent of
tho Time.*, saya he bolievcs the story
is truo but an official contradiction may
bo expected. It will be remembered
that on Saturday, tho 2Gth, tho air
wns full of rumors of a coup by tho
government. A report gut out that
the arrest of the general wns intended
and tho premature publication did as
much to prevent tho execution of the
design as tho vigorous opposition of
Mr._,DeFrcycinet, Had the attempt
beon made Paris would bave been deluged in a sea of blood. The Boulan-
gists had been warned and were ready
for action. Had a finguro boen laid on
thoir chief their leadera wero prepared
to fulfil the advantage of euch a fatal
stop. Tho general himself in his proclamation challenged the ministry to
try it, and welcomed it m a forerunner
of victory, nnd declared at the samo
time it would prove the downfall nnd
annihilation of the government.

Thursday Evening, Feb. T, 1889.
We publish another letter to-day
on tbe subject nf naming and numbering tho streets nnd houses in
thi= city. It will bu observed that
strangers notico our lack in these
particulars most, which is easily explainable, of course, on tho grounds
of their having boen accustomed to
the ordinary conveniences of cities.
There can bo uo question but that
our uncitified stylo in some things
must givo strangers and visitors generally the impression that Westminster is more of nn overgrown village
than a city. We must throw off all
these "mossbacky"air_i as soon hs
possible, or suffer prejudice to our
interests. Strangers are continually
flowing into the country for the purpose of locating, and the influx will
bo very large during the coming
season. It is to the interest of
each citizen to make Westminster
as attractive as possible to the right
class of immigrants, and, among
other needed reforms and improvements, that of naming the streets
and numbering the houses should bo
undertaken withont delay. If nil
our citizens exhibit the same spirit
in all matters affecting the common
interestnsisdisplnyed in the liberal
offer of our correspondents, not only
the scheme in ijucstion, but every
worthy oivic enterprise, will be successfully inaugurated and carried to
completion. Public-spiritedness is a
grace that Wnstminsterites need to
cultivate.
The report of the department of
militia, observes the Empire, shows
nothing of tlmt terrible state of
disorganization of which we have
read in some Canadian journals,
perhaps to oncourago thoir friends
in the United States who gladly
quote Iheir criticisms. The Empire
continues : "When wo read in the
report of the deputy minister, Col.
Panet, of the imperial army authorities, being so well satisfied with the
graduates of the Koynl Military
College that they havo olt'ered an increased number of commissions, we
may well be satisfied. Of a similar
nature is the fact he mentions that
the authorities of Jamaica have had
two of their officers attached to the
Canadian militia for instruction,
General Middleton repeats these
praises, and relates how he surprised
General Clark, deputy adjutant-
general of the imperial army, by
showing him the movements of the
Winnipeg mounted infantry on tho
prairie. The good reports of the
militia when called upon to assist
the civil authorities ure also very
satisfactory. The general, however,
can be critical when required, and
he repeats his recommendation that
the whole force should be drilled
yearly. Of course, this is n question for our finance minister ns well
ns for the militia department. He
nlso advocates the strengthening of
the schools and permanent corps of
those important branches, tho artillery und cavalry j as to the latter,
advising a school in Toronto, The
reports on the annual camps and
otlier details ns to our Oanadian
forces also show that the most is
being done with tho means provided. Altogether, it is a creditable showing of the state of our
little citizen army.
According to our despatches from
Victoria yesterday, Hon. Mr. Kob-
son's mission to Ottawa   has boen
attended   with   important   results,
The   promised   papers   have   been
brought down, the first oyster has
boen opened, and has proved  worth
the while.    The vexed question  as
to who should stand   the necessary
cost of the Skoena   expedition has
been satisfactorily settled, for the
province.    Tho  assurance that  a
satisfactory   settlement   has   beon
brought about with respect   to   the
Sumas dyking lands will   be   very
gratifying to those interested in the
lands in question, and the settlement
of such a matter cannot fail of being
a benefit to the province   genorally.
A wise selection has been made with
respect to locations in the provinco
for county court judgeships,   Westminster, Nanaimo,  and   Kamloops
being mentioned.   These places aro
central in their localities,   and   tho
publio    convenience will   best   be
served  by   making   appointments
accordingly.   It is none too  early
that steps wero taken to define   the
international    boundary    between
British Oolumbia and Alaska, and
we are glad to observo that tho provincial secretary's mission   has   resulted in« promise  from tho  Dominion authorities to do something
in that  connection.     We  should
have liked to have Been  some  dis
position on the part of the  Dominion government to assist, during the
coming season, tho development  of
our deep sea fisheries, by means of
that long-promised exploratory survey of tho coast.   We  hope that
this may not be loft  altogether  to
private enterprise.    The value  of
our sea farm  is  incalculable,   but
some oacouragemont and assistance,
such as has been  suggested, is  required for its development
The Ii. C. -Mining Review for
February has the following uncomplimentary, if not libellous, editorial
reference to this city : "We have
lived half a contury, but never,until
we struck the hospitable shores of
the Fraser at New 'Westminster,
hnd wc heard of, much less felt the
force of, tho term mossback, ns applied to individuals. As time rolls
on and our provincial experience increases and ripens, wo perceive tho
peculiar fitness of the word as applied to some men in some localities wo will not indicate. We look
upon tho moss-covered stone, the
moss-covered tree, and,if you please,
the moss-covered bucket. Wo are
filled with a feeling of awe and
reverence, and with sweet and hallowed memories of childhood and
boyhood-—the light of other days.
Alas! we look again, it is all
changed, ■t.H -o and behold we see
that slow, creeping, useless thing
called a mossljaok. Wo approach—
we accost him. His one scornful
look, which is easily interpreted to
mean 'How long have you been in
the country, Sir Intruder?' paralyzes us. Our heart ceases to beat.
We feel, or try to feel again, but
now the feeling is that lifo is not
worth living. Faith, hope, ambition
—all are gone, and we exclaim in
despair and bitterness of soul, 'Good
Lord, deliver us from this body of
living death—the mossback!' As
we understand it,' the term is not
intended to apply to men of any
age, but to those poor, unfortunate
creatures, who, probably having
been born with very small souls, if
any at all, and by their close communions, insular views and surroundings, and selfish feeding on
oach other, havo dried up all the
milk of human kindness they ever
possessed, if, indeed, they ever possessed any, have drifted away from
the spirit, the progress and privileges of the century in which they
exist, to be a nuisance to themselves and a curse to the community
in which they live. There are, and
always have been, tnossbacks in all
countries, but masquerading under
different names at different times,
and they have existed in all ages,
even from the beginning. Wo always sized up Gain as a mossback,
more or less. O ! ye of little faith."
We have quoted the entire paragraph for its apt description of the
genus mossback ; but what does the
genial Review man mean by his unkind thrust at the royal city 1 Ho
must have been very unfortunate
when lie struck these "hospitable
shores" to havo run foul of moss-
bucks, who, wo can assure him, bear
an infinitesimal proportion to tho
"live" citizens of this burgh. Next
time the editor of the Mining Review visits New Westminster, we
trust he may fall into better company, of which he will find no
lack,

CONQUERED BY SNAKES.
A Oanff of Outlaws Hemmed In
by an Army of Serpents.
Tho cIobo ot tbo civil war loft some portions of tlie South ln the bands of desperately wicked men. Particularly was this
true of parln of Missouri, Mississippi, Arkansas, lioulslana and Texas. Whilo tho
Ooufodorato troops had disbanded, and beforo tbo Fodorul could occupy tbo country,
tho guerrilla and bushwhacker woro there.
1 bad a district assigned to me along the
Bt. Frauds rlvor, Arkansas, and tbo total
strength of iny commaod was twenty-eight
mon. -,     gJ     £   C#'M
Id ray territory, says a writer in tho Now
York Nun, as 1 soon ascertained, wero some
of tho worst desperadoes in tho West All
had belonged to gnomlla bands, and all had
rofusod to otuiM.nand surrender at tbscloae
of tlio war. Tho meanest, If not tbe worst,
man in my distriot was Captain Dado. He
was in command of a dozen outlaws. 1 sent
the desperado word lo como In and surrender. Uo sent mo word to ro to thunder. I
notified blm ln writ!tin that if ho did not
come la by a certain dato I should declare
him an outlaw In the district, and proceed
to bunt him down and kill him. Ho replied
by word of mouth that if I did not surrender lo tiim on or. boforo tho samo date ho
would proceed to exterminate my command. I gave him ton days, having not tho
slightest hope tbat lie would come in. On
the morning of the eleventh day I had a
call from a native, about twenty llvo years
old, who announced htmwlf as "Dan," and
who said he had called on a littlo business
matter. I supposed It to be about a permit,
or to make complaint, but aftor a bit he observed:
"Captain, them ton days ar' up, an' I
reckon Bill Dado hain't shown hlsself."
"No, he hasn't como iu."
"An* he won't, uuthor."
"I don't expect ho will."
"Wall, ar* you gwiuo tor lot him an'his
gang keep up thar whoppin' an1 shottin' an'
kllllnM"
"No, Bill Dado and his gang are now outlawed by proclamation, 1 am going to hunt
tbem down and wipo them out."
"Right off. Captain!"
"As soon as I oan arrange for it."
"You kin arrango right now, Captain.
That's what I'm vers fur. How much a
bead If I wipe out tho Dade gang!"
"How many arc thero?"
"Just five, an'every ono of 'em has committed murder an' wuss a dozon times
ovor."
"I can't offer a reward for their beads. I
havo outlawed them, and tho military authorities havo tho right to shoot them on
sight."
At that moment word was brought me
that Dade's gang had come within two miles
of headquarters and murdered two of the
command who wero stationed at a freed-
man's rendezvous to preserve ordor. Half
an hour later tho" man called Dan departed
on bis man hunt, and ho had my agreement
In writing that neither the law nor tho military should trouble him for shooting down
any of the gang.
• This darina* man-hunter stepped into his
canoe and paddled up the river about fivo
miles. Then he entered a bayou to the
right, and carefully mado his way to a bit of
high ground about two milos from tho
river. 'All tho low lands wero thon under overflow for ten miles back, and ho
know of but one spot where tliooTrtlowa
could rendezvous. This was n larger island,
about half a mile away, and bearing a log-
house and some form improvements. At
this time tho placo could bo approached only
by water, and Dodo was not bluffing wiien
ho defied me. It is doubtful if auy offer of
reward could havo induced a Federal soldier to follow Dan. • Tho overflow had driven
tho reptiles to toko refuge in tho bushes
and trees, and as hts canoo moved in and out
tho hiss of the cotton-mouth and tho warn*
ing of the rattler came to hia oars almost
continuously. Half a dozon times in the
course of half an hour hideous serpents lot
go of the branches and foil into the water
with a loud splash and swam for tho canoe,
perhaps hoping to bo carried to the high
ground, and at such times tho man had to
lay down his paddle and beat them off with
a pole. Thore was danger with every rod
of tho journey, and tho semi-darkness end
the utter stillness would have taken the
courage from an average man.
Dan did not land upon tbo island, but
made tho circuit of it in his canoe, and
satisfied himself that no sentinel was established hero, as ho suspected might be tbe
case. If ono bod been posted thero ho had
been forced to abandon his position by the
thousands of reptiles which had been driven
In for shelter.' Any craft seeking tho othor
island muBt pass here, and any craft making for the river from tho other Island must
use this channel. Satisfied that ho had left
no danger behind bim, and that his way of
retreat was open If ho were forced to fall
back, Dan cautiously proceeded on his
way. It was not yet mid-afternoon. It
was a hot summer's day, and thero was
absolute silence in the great swamp. The
outlaws, returned from their raid, would
expect pursuit, and, therefore, be watchful.
Dan was known to all of them, and tho Instant ho was discovered hb would bo shot
down. He knew ovory foot of tho island,
and as ho neared it ho hod his plans nil
laid. Making a wide sweep by forcing his
canoo where It seemed hardly possible for a
serpent to go, ho lunded on the north sido
of the pieco of land, half a mile from the
hut, As soon as he had hidden the craft be
mado his way toward the clearing, moving
with all the caution of au Indian on tho warpath, He said ho saw moro snakes that
day than ho supposed the whole country
held. He touched them time and again, and
a score of times ho camo within an aco of
being bitten.
When Dan reached the edge of tho clearing at a point whero he was close upon the
cabin, ho was surprised to find every thing
quiet. There was a smoldering firo at the
door, and plenty of ovidenco that the men
wore near. If they had Bet a watch it was
down at the landing. Aftor waiting for
halt an hour Dan made two Important discoveries. One'of the men came to tho door,
yawned, threw up his hand, and looked
about him in a sleepy manner. There was
a Jug of whisky outsido tho door, uud after
taking a long drink the fellow Htagi;ci-cd
over to tho fire, threw on a few fugtjots,
and then lurched into tho house. Tho other
discovery waa that tbe back water In the
bayou was rising. He got tho hint from tho
action of coons.rabblls and tho -indites. Thoy
wero pressing toward tbe higher ground on
which the houso stood, and uonoof thom
seemed to mind bis presence
Taking advantage of such a shelter as
was afforded, and being ready at any moment to open tho fight, tho man iinullv
readied the cabin. It was a stout structure,
wlih a boavy door opoulug outwnrd. On
tho plonk floor within, sprawled out iu
reckless fashion, woro fivo slcoimig mon—
Captain Dado and bis outlaws. Thoy woro
not only sleepers, but oach nun was blind
drunk.
Guns, revolvers and knives woro lying
about on tho floor, Dan, couid .have gone
among them nnd slabbed each ono to the
heart without risk, but ho was not coward
enough for this. Ho waa thinking that hu
would bind tho fellows tight and fast, ro
movo their weapons, and thon bar thciu in
until ho could return for help and capture
the lot for tho gallows-tree. This plan
would havo been carried out but for ono
unlooked-for circumstance. Tho snakes had
begun to tako possession of tho cabin. A
dozon rushed in through the open door in
quick succession, and others climbed up to
tho open window, and either fell to ttio Door
or squirmed along tho logs. Hero was
safety from the rising waters. Their fear
of man was temporarily benumbed by tho
other danger, and cotton-mouth, rattler
and moccasin passed the man at the door
without thought of using their deadly fnngs.
Baid Dan: "I carefully pulled tho door to,
and braced it shut with a log. Thar was a
wooden blind to the window, and this 1 also
shut and braced, Thar wbb room enough
under tbo door for more snakes to get iu,
but it would have taken tbe strength of live
sober men to break it down. I calkerlated
as how that room would be holdln' about a
hundred snakoB when tho follows begau to
rub thoir eyes open, and I felt suro 1 could
leave tho job to them to finish."
He had to wade in wator knee-deep before
he got back to his canoe, and It was utter
daylight next morning when he came lo iny
headquarters to make bis report and ask
for a detail of mt n to go back with him.
"What do you suppose has happened by
this time!" I asked.
"Dead, sir, evory man of 'om," ho replied. "Thorn snakes got over their scaro
in about half an hour, and tho first man
who moved to get up had pl_.cn'shot into
him liko a streak of lightning. Thnr'll bo
five corpses thar to bo identified, and thar'll
be somo property to bo divided up."
I concluded to go along with tho detail,
and about noon wo reached tho place. Wo
had to kill a score ef reptiles,.boforo wo-
could land. Tlie door and blind wore as
Dan had left them. Ho advanced alone
to tho door, threw It open, and, aftor u
hasty glanco Inside, came back to us with
his faco as palo as death.
"Dead, I suppose!" I queried.
"All in a heap, sir, and thar's mo1 than a
thousand snakes inside!"
A guerrilla outlaw namod Chambers, who
had sworn to kill me, came in four or five
days after the death of Dade, and bogged
mo to permit him to surrender and go
home.
"But you have threatened my life," I
said.
"Hartin I hov, Captain; but I've bin a
fool. X didn't know what you was. When
a man kin bandlo sarpiats and outlaws like
you hev dono, what's tho use a kiokin'agin
him. I want to surrender and put au end
to this war."
Two weeks later there wasn't a "liider
out" in my wholo dlstrlot, and It was safe
for mon to go everywhere. The Bnuko
business, which Dan Insisted on giving mo
credit for, was of more help than a regiment
of Federal Infantry.	
TOM  FITCH'S   PASS.
It .Saved   Another  Man, But   Old Tom
Was nabbed Himself.
They wero roasting chestnuts, a lot of old-
timers, the othor night, says a writer in tho
San Francisco Chronicle, and many of tlio.
classic stories of California woro repeated.
Ono was quoted that Tom Fitch used to tell
about himself, but it reflected groat glory
upon him, and ono eld mean curmudgeon
said it waB not tho truo version of tlio story
at all. Tom Fitch told it his way, be said,
but that wasn't it. At that time Tom was:
in tbo interior, and this young fellow, rut her
green, camo through on a trip. Tom got
hold of him and filled him full of all sorts of
stories that mode tho young man's hair
stand on end. At last thoy got to stago-
robbor stories, and ho had some bloodcurdling ones; but Tom mado tha youug
follow believe he was all-powerful, oven
with tho stage robbers. He waa giving the
stranger somo letters of introduction to
friends in other places, when tho stranger,
after some hesitation, said: "Say, can't you
givo mo a pass!"
"A pass I"
"I moan a pass through tho country;
somothlng I can show the highwaymen
when thoy stop tlio stage, and get safe
through.""
" Why, certainly."
And Tom wrote out an ordor. "Pans tbo
bearer without molestation. (Signed) Tom
Fitch." It happonod that Tom had to go on
the samo stage as tho young fellow, aud it
was " stood up " in duo course, as Tom had
represented it was likely to .be. " Throw
up your hands." Up went every body's
hands, Tom's included. Wbon tho robbors
reached tho young stranger he spoke up:
" Wbo is tho captain of this band!"
"Oot out, young fellow! You koop your
hands up."
" I want to seo the captain of this baud,"
"Youshut up. I'm captain enough for
you."
" I havo a paper for the captain of this
baud."
"Let him tako hia hands down, Bill," said
one of tbo robbers.
" No, you don't.  Whoro is this paper!'"
" It is lu my walBtcoat pocket."
The robber put his hand into the waistcoat uud found tho paper—"Fuss tbo
bearor without molestation, Tom Fitch."
" All right, youug feller, you can pass."
Thou they cume to Tom.
"Hold on," Baid Tom, as tbey began to
search; "hold on." *
" What's tbe matter with you!"
"You can't rob mo."
"Wo can't; why!"
"I'm Tom Fitch."
"Ootout; that's too thin. Stand steady.
That'll do."
And they took all he'd got and went on.
"I wish I'd written a pass for myself,"
said Tom. But it was too late; they'd
cleaned him out -
Chinese Mythology.
The outline hlitory of the idol which
the Chinese were celebrating these fow
days in the city is w follows:
This god or Idol, called Sal San Pak
Sek Tow Wong, was a man full of virtue
and great renown,
He was the principal adviser in overthrowing the Chun dynasty, and he was
also the inaugurator of the Hon dynasty,
which succeeded the Chun. Daring the
reign ot the first emperor of the Hon
dynasty Tow wu appointed prime minister.
Tow was his title name, while his
given name was Chan Ping, Chan tho
surname, Ping the given name, and Winn
Ching the tribal name, but they called
him the Sat San Pak Sek Tow Wong,
which means "the god ot the white alone
mountain of the west."
So Chang Ping ia his proper name,
and any Chinaman who belongs to tbo
Chan family haa a perfect right to claim
him as his ascestor.
It ia impoeible to find his age, but
from the year In which the Hon dynasty
was established to tho present is mw
yeara exactly.
While Chang Pang waa yet in the
offlce the emperor died and left a young
widowed empress, the most beautiful
woman in the land.
Now Chan Ping was also a very handsome man—some Bay the handsomest in
all China—ami soon his appearanco ox-
cited the lovo of the empress widow.
When Chang Ping hocamo aware of
the improper affection of the empress,

Aa prodicted in theso columns a few

authorities to provide extra police protection to guard against larger robberies which are sure to follow unless
double precautions are instituted. The
latest robbery occurcd last night when
Mr. M. DesBriaay's residence, corner
of Mary street and Queen's Avenue,
was entered and a fow articles stolen.
The entrance was made by means of a
duplicate key which enabled the robbers to get inside without disturbing
the inmates, who knew nothing of
what had taken place until this morning. Two pairs of boots, two umbrellas and a lint were Btolen, but nothing
of valuo. A few nights ago Mr. Grand*

At the board of trado rooms yesterday afternoon Robert Dickinson, Esq.,
retiring mayor, wns mado tho rocipiont
of a very handsoino and substantial assurance of the esteem in which he ia
held by the citizens. This assurance
came to him in the shape of a costly
and elegant tilting Bilvcr water pitcher
and goblet, upon which the following
inscription bad been engraved: "Presented to P.obert Did-iii-un., Esq., by
citizens of Now Westminster upon bis
retiring from mayoralty, December
1888." The presentation was made by
Mr. T. J. Trapp, vice-president of the
board of trado, on behalf of the citizens wbo had interested themselves in
tbo nll'air, and it waa accompanied by
the following address:
Rokeiit Dickinson, Esq, — Dkau
Sin.—On behalf of a number of citizens, we havo much pleasure in presenting you with this token uf our regard and esteem, and of your earnest
and faithful services on behalf of the
city during the many years in which
you have occupied the position of
mayor. As you have now retired from
public life, for a time nt least, we take
this opportunity of assuring you that
you carry with you the best wishes of
all who have been privileged to aid you
in advancing the true interests uf our
fair city; and we feel assured that aa
you have done in tha past, and are
now doing in tho present, so you will
in the future continue to bo one of
thoso upon whom we may confidently
roty as an adviser and leader in carrying nut audi schemes as may be undertaken tor the city's development. On
behalf of the subscribers I hnvo the
honor to remain, doar sir, very truly
yours, T. J. Tiiait.
Ex-Mayor Dickinson said this presentation had taken him bo completely
by surprise tbat he could find no suitable words in which to express his
thanks to the citizens who had been so
kind ns to pro .ent him with this beautiful token of regard. The people of
Westminster had honored bim many
times by electing him mayor of this
city, nnd he could say now that it had
always been his earnest endeavor to
act in such a v, ay ns to promote tho
city's welfare; and if at any future
time ho could do anything to further
tbe same object, his motto would bo
what it had always been—New Westminstor first, last,and all the time. He
wished his warmest thanks to be con
veyod to thoBO who had taken part in
preparing thia most agreeable surpri.e,
and it gave him unqualified ploasurc to
accept the handsome gift whtch would
be a constant memento of their kind
consideration.

A Would-be Muzzier of Free Speech.
Editok Columbian.--The Mainland
Guardian of last issue, in again criticising the pastor of the Methodist church,
anent his sermon with respect to crime
and its causes, speaks as follows: "We
had hoped that our remarks in a recent
issue would have stemmed the tide of
this preacher's zeal," Ac. This is rather
comical indeed. The editor of the Church
street guardian of the people's rights to
indulge at lilwrty in potheen is very much
astonished to find that tho pastor of the
Methodist church did not take the hint
and for the future be silent on such subjects. What a pity that tbe editor of
the Guardian did not possess the absolute power of the Czar for a short time.
One of the Congregation.
Church Socials.
Editor Columiiian.—In common with
many of your readers, I highly appreciate your new departure In the Mondays'
issues, giving "the good news in our
churches;'1 especially in giving so fully
those grand sermons ot tbe Rev. Mr.
White. As I listened to the one we may
cnll tho "City Map" sermon, iny only
regret wns that you could not have
printed every wbrd of it in the largest type
and put a copy in*»tlic hands of every
man and woman iu the city, bong may
lie bo spared to obey bis Lord's voice—
"Cry aloud, spare not; lift up thy voice
like a trumpet, and bIicw my peoplo
their transgression, nnd the house of
Jacob their Bins." But all your church
reports are not pleasant reading. That
item announcing for the first time in ita
history, a social or tea-meeting in old St.
Andrew's church, carried sore grief
to the hearts of some to whom
the most sacred recollections of their
whole lives are connected with that
old church; and, who, moreover, conscientiously believe that it is a desecration of the Lord's house to turn it into a
restaurant, and a place of amusement,
They believe that thia is forbidden in
such places of God's Word as
these: "Ye shall keep My Sabbaths and
reverence Mysanctuary; lam the Lord."
"Keep thy foot when thou goest to the
house of God, and be more ready to hear
than to givo the sacrifice of fools," They
believe, too, that the buyers and sellers
and fun-loving people in our churches today would meet with the same salutation from the Saviour as as' He gave to
those of old, if lie came to them in the
body: "And Jesus wont into the temple
of Ood, and cost out all thom that
sold and bought in the temple,
and overthrew the tables of tho moneychangers, and the seats of them that
sold doves, and said unto them: "It is
written 'My bouse shall be called the
houso of prayer, but ye have made it a
den of thieves.' " And what happened
to Him when Ho said tbat is very likely
to happen to the writer—"And the scribes
and chief priests heard it, and sought how
they might destroy Him." There iB not
the shallow of an excuse in a place like
this, with so many suitable halls, for any
congregation of the Lord's professing
Eeople to secularize and desecrate tho
ord's houso by turning it into nn
eating house and concert hall. What
was said of another subject, may be said
of this: "What! have ye not bouses to
eat and drink in? Or despise ye the
church of Cod, and shame them that
have not? What shall I say unto you?
Shall I praise yon iu this? I praise you
not."
What is the reply, Mr. Editor, we get
to our objections and our reusfal to have
any share in this thing? We are told,
1. That we are in the minority and
the majority must rule. Granted that
we are sadly in the minority; tbat does
not prove us wrong. Those who teach
and take an interest in the. Sabbath
school are in the minority. Those who
attend and take part in the prayer meeting arc in tho minority. Those who sit
down quarterly at the Lord's table are
in the minority. Are these all
wrong, and must they submit to tbe majority? 2, We are told that others do
sueh things; tbat is no argument. That
plea long covered slave-dealing and
drunkennness, and other now admitted evils in tho church of God.
3. Wo are told that tho old church is
now "only a hall!" That is a subterfuge
which it would give the devil himself
some trouble to get off with a straight
face. That old church is still to be
used for prayer meetings, Sabbath
schools, and other of the most solemn
and vital parts of tlio church's work;"
and is the Lord's sp'odlal prcsoncc not to
bo sought for and expected in these? 4.
We arc told that all places arc the same
to the Lord, and what is right to do in
one place, i. right to do in auothor. Hut
all places, an wc have seen, arc not in
cvory sense tlie samo to tho Lord. And
bath He not said: "In nil plnccs where I
record my name, I will como unto thee,
and I will bless thee." "The Lord
lovoth the gates of /ion mure than all the
dwellings of Jacob." Nor nre all places
tha same to man. Announce a congregational'nr Sunday school picnic, or a
dance in the cemetery, and bow many of
the most frivolous and fun-loving would
go lo them? They would be shocked,
and justly so; and shaU wo have more
respect and reverence for the burial
place of our dead than for "the house of
God, which is the ohurch of the living
God, the pillar and ground of
tbo truth." 0, We nro told
that wo make too much of a small
matter. This tea-drinking and torn-foolery in a church may bo regarded by
some as a small matter, but when it is
viewed in its far-reaching results, and as
a symptom of a dangerous disease, it is
very far from small. A non-professional
man may see in the dancing eyes and Hushed cheeks, nothing but signs of life and energy. The skillful physician sees nothing but alarming danger aud the .mt
approach of death. You know, Mr.
Editor, I am not young In years; and I
must .ay, as tho years roll on, I have an InJ
creasing respect for the churches of England and Rome In tho matter of respect
and reverence for the Lord's house, I
often think that It is fortunate to have
them in so many places as bulwarks
against the rising tide of irreverence
whioh is a perilously short step from ungodliness, and a specimen of which
from Victoria you so fittingly rebuked
lately, Alas 1 that these churches
should be sooften the only bulwark,
