NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A new comet was discovered recently hy Prof. Barnard, of the
.Lick Observatory, California, which
will be visible to the naked eye the
last of May.
Tho Old Man's Views—Oity
Lover—Do you think your father
will look with favor on uiy suit ?
Rural Belle—I'm afraid not. He
hates storo clothes.
Gabriel Dumont, says the Mail of
the 17th inst, is said to be holding
inflammatory meetings in the
Saskatchewan district, and fears of
an outbreak are entertained.
A new baby made its appearance
at-Squildig's house the other day.
When papa heard it cry for the
first time he remarked: "Listen to
its Inauguration bawl."—Ex.
Peoplo who consider "haah" too
vulgara word to apply to the compound which usually bears that
distinctive title might call it stewed
bric-a-brac, suggests  an exchange.
The Madison ville, Kentucky,
authorities have passed an ordinance
forbidding brass bands, from meeting "for the purpose of learning new
pieces of music within 300 feet of a
dwelling house."
In New York city an arrangement has been made by which men
of every shade of opinion—Republicans, Democrats, Prohibitionists
and all other parties—will mingle
together in "brotherly love" and
march in tho great contennial
parade.
The singing of the song "For He's
a Jolly Good Fellow," at public dinners, in England, has become such
a mania that a society for the discouragement of the practice is to lie
organized. It is always sung at
least once after the announcement
of each speaker, and frequently
repeated as an encore.
On tbe shores of Lake Nyanza :
Stanley (raising his hat)—Emin
Boy, I presume? Emin Bey—Yes,
sir. Js there anything I can do for
you 1 Stanley—I have como to
rescue you. Emin Bey (compassionately)—Thanks, my good man,
thanks. (To Native.) Umslopo-
guss, take this poor fellow out and

Tribune. ■
The latest London fad is tho collection of the door knobs and bell
handles of famous people. The
American college boy sometimes
indulges in this fad, but he doesn't
confine himself to those of famous
peoplo. When he feols real good,
and tho policeman isn't around, he
will collect the door knob or bell
handlo of the most unknown person
in the town.—Ex.
Newfoundland is taking the lead
with a manhood suffrage measure,
which passed the assembly tho other
day. Every householder over 21,
and every man not a householder
over 25 is entitled to vote: The
bill adds 12,000 voters to the list,
making a total of 42,000, or one-
fifth of the population. It is safe
to pass the council und take effect at
the election this year.
An Australian cotem. goes for its
deliquents in this fashion : "You
may hive the stars in a nail keg,
hang tho ocean on a rail fence to
dry, put the sky to soak in a gourd,
and unbuckle tbe belly-band of
eternity and let the sun and moon
out, but don't think you can escape
the place that lies on the other side
of purgatory if you don't pay for
your paper." The genial "proprietor and editor" of this sheet evidently suffers from a plethora of
unprincipled subscribers.
The editor of tho Corncracker
comes to the front in this week's
issue as follows : "We tender our
regrets to Mr. Walker Blaine, of the
state department. By an oversight
of tho otllce boy, who was reading
proof during the absence of tho
editor, putting in a loud of coal
received on subscription, tho types
wero mado to say that Mr. Blaine
had been appointed examiner of
clams. Of course the majority of
the people know this should have
been examiner of claims, but as
Washington is in a shell-fish location antl mistakes might arise, we
thought it no more than justice to
Mr. Blaine to make this public correction in our columns. Now is the
time to subscribe. — Washington
Critic.
Tho late Oount Schouvaloff did
muoh hi 1878 to preserve peace
between England and Russia, but
on ono occasion one of his jokes
nearly precipitated war. Ho was at
Lady Granville's at a time whon
rumours were thick tbat tho Russians were advancing by forced
marches on Constantinople. Some
one asked bim plumply if it were so.
"Why," he replied, with a laugh,
"we are already there 1" The company scattered, Two hours afterwards telegrams were flying to
Aldershot, Portsmouth, Besika Bay,
and elsewhere, Threo days after
oue enquired of the ambassador
why he had but off such a serious
joko. He replied that no one had
nny business to question him on
sueh a subject in  a  drawing-room,

New York, April 25.—Mann Mn*
guiro, familiarly known ns "Toppy"
Maguire, the oldest sporting reporter
on the metropolitan press, died at his
house in Harlem Inst night. He waa
75 years of age. The cause of his
death was a carbuncle which first appeared a year ago on the top his spine
and notwithstanding. nn; operation it
developed until'it coveVcd the entire
space between the nhoulders, For
20 years he was sporting reporter for

Aiii.lv<-i>*ir) of Otfiirelltiw-lilp.
The lecture delivered by tbe Rev.
Mr. Baldwin in the Oddfellows' Hall
last evening, on Odd fellowship, wna
fairly well attended. At 8.30 o'clock
Mr. W, McColl took the chair, and in
the courso of a few remarks stated that
the object of the meeting was to celebrate tho 7th anniversary of tho establishment of the Order of Oddfellows'
in America. The opening ode, beginning with the words "Brethren of our
friendly Order," was then sung by the
whole assemblage, accompanied by Mr.
Morey at the piano, after which the
chairman introduced tho Rev. Mr.
Baldwin as tho speaker. Tho reverend gentleman began his lecture
by saying that ho nover beforo had an
opportunity of addressing a public
meeting, and then reluted an amusing
anecdote to illustrate tho alleged prosi-
nessof audiences in tho west. He
said that this was a progressive age;
it was different to that of our ancestors. When people left the old method
of travel they found it necessary to
change thoir methods of thinking. We
are living now in an age that is full of
bud and promise ; the air iB full of the
Bpirifc of pro*>ress. Wonderful inventions had changed man's ideas, nnd he
thought, anoke and acted more quickly
and intently than ho formerly did.
We have reached a place whero cranks
never come--wo do not mean cranks
when we speak- of Oddfellows. Odd-
fellowship is now a necessity. A
stranger in a foreign land, if hu is a
member nf the order, is surrounded
and cared for by friends. Some say
that thii is tho work of the churoh, but
does the church always do her work?
If a fire broke out m the town some
might say that it wbb the work of the
Hyack Oo. to attend to that. Thero
ie always outsido work for Oddfollow-
shi'p to do. She recognizes no religion,
but goes out in the world with no prejudice iu her eye. She recognizes nil
colors and tongues. Her mission is
broad. A great many things nre said
againBt the order. It is a secret society, and that is sufficient to condemn
it with some. We require secrets ; we
require secrets and saucily nt homo. If
a young lady has a lover, the last thing
that sho would Hunt* of telling is what

RANDY'S ATTACK ON CHAMBERLAIN.
London, April 23.—The general
dulness incidental to the Easter holidays hns been very favorable to the
excitement ot the widespread interest
inLirdRandolph Churchill's savage
attack upon Mr. Joseph Chamberlain,
and that gentleman's reply thereto.
Lord Randolph's letter is admitted to
bo a straightforward statement of the
situation in Birmingham and the cause
thereof, nud opinion is that Mr. Chamberlain's answer dodgea the ibsuo and
widens tho breach botween tho unionists and the tories. Tho local leaders
of both parlies had reached a perfectly
harmonious understanding previous to
Mr. Chamberlain's inhibition of the
nomination of the conservative candidate in the central division. Concerning Mr, Chamberlain's arbitrary course
Messrs. Rowland and Hopkins and Sir
James Sawyer, Conservatives, havo
prepared a concise statement, whioh
will bo published in to-morrow's issue
of tho Birmingham Gazette, and the
controversy thus opened by Lord Randolph Churchill promises to involve a
largo number of persons and disclose
somo interesting political secrets. Mr.
Joseph Chamberlain hss written a reply to the open letter of Lord Randolph arraigning the Birmingham radical loader for his action in the recent
election in ihe central division. In
the course of bis letter Mr. Chamberlain saya: "I will endeavor humbly to
profit by your advice, though I fear the
task of reconciling conflicting interests
is not made easier by your communiea-
tionregardingfutureaction."Mr.Oham-
lain thinks that tho Conservatives and
Liberal-Unionists ought to make a joint
canaa*s to ascertain their, relative
force in Birmingham and afterwards
submit their differences to arbitration.
Ho declares that he would welcome
any assistance from Lord Randolph

Tbunti-r Evening. Aprils, isks.
We give considerable space to-day
to tho report of tho Richmond council, in which another chapter or two
of   the Norlh Arm bridges' somewhat vexed and troublous history is
wound off.   The report of tho Richmond council delegate, appointed to
interview tho government with respect to their intentions in tho matter of   renewing, and augmenting,
their original grunt of §10,000 to
the  bridges  in question, together
•with the very explicit, exhaustive,
and considerate letter of tho honorable  provincial  secretary, on   the
same subject, should certainly, and
will, doubtless, be  accepted  by the
Richmond people ns perfectly satisfactory evidence  of  the continued
good   faith  and good intentions of
the government  in  the premises. \
We do not see what more could be
asked by the Richmond municipality,
both  in  the  consideration shown
them and in the concessions made.
We notice also that the provincial
secretary, in   passing, as  it were,
places the blame for the delay that
hns already occurred in getting the
bridges under way, whore it belongs,
on the shoulders of tho C.F.R-Co.,
although, rightly enough, he exculpates the company from any intentional  obstruction  in   the matter.
The   report of  the  delegation appointed by the Richmond council to
wait   on Mr. Abbott, "in order to
obtain a more definite proposition" i
respecting the O.P.R.Co.'s intentions
with reference to constructing the
bridges, for a bonus, as combination
railway  and   traffic  bridges,   was
hardly of so satisfactory a nature as
the one first considered.   As will be
seen, the O.P.R.Co., according to
Mr. Abbott, have definitely decided
not   to   do so, for that is what Mr.
Abbott's   reply to  the   Richmond
delegation   virtually amounted   to.
This decision throws the Richmond
municipality upon  its  own   ascertained   resources, nnd there should
be very little more delay in getting
down to actual construction on the
much talked of North Ann bridges,
which should be looked upon ns one
consolation, at any rate, by all concerned. 	
Thia Ib a world of change.   Even
the "eternal hills" are "eternal" only
by courtesy, so to speak.   And tho
"only and  original" Niagara Falls ;
are changing shape, wearing slowly
away, step by step retreating up the
stream   to  Lake Erie,   This great
natural feature, which our American
cousins  regard with   an excusable
pride   similar   to  that with which
they view the '-surplus" and other
national   "institooshuns," is, however, good   for several generations,
as   a   very   respectable  waterfall,
though its  form should alter somewhat  from time to time.   An ox-
change says that there have recently
been two very heavy falls of rock at
Niagara   Falls.   At first a mass of
rook fell from the Horseshoe Falls,
and twenty-four hours later another
mass was precipitated into the abyss
^ below, with  a  noise  so closely re-
'sembling that of an oarthquuke as
to alarm the residents of tho neighborhood.   The result of the displacement is a change in the shape of the
fall. Formerly the Canadian portion
of  the fall could be described ns a
horseshoe; but the breaking away
of   rocks   in the center some years
ogo made it V-shaped.   Now that a
further displacement has occurred,
tbe fall has returned to its old condition.   It is, of  course, generally
known that the falls of Niagara are
gradually moving to tho south,  The
deep  cut  through  the solid rock
marks the course they have taken in
their backward movement.   It is a
wonderful excavation, u chasm dug
out by the sheer force of water. Not
less astonishing lias been the removal
of   the debris.    Tho rock has been
thoroughly pulverized, and lins been
swept   out of   tho river, to bo distributed in Lake Ontario.   Onco it
was  thought   thnt in tho wearing
away process the falls would reach
Lake Erie and there degenerate into
a series of rapids.   But the theory
has been set aside by one which retains the cataract, although the latter will be the shadow of its present
self, and much reduced in size.  The
latest idea is that tbe falls will recede   two   miles and then remain
stationary, their height at that point
being. 80 feet, instead of 16-1, as at
present.   The supposition   is  supported    by  an    argument   which
,   appears  reasonable.    The present
site    is    it   limestone formation,
some  80  or  90 feet  thick, with
> a shaly.foundation.   As the shale is
washed away the limestone breaks
off. and the falls tako a step backward.   But the end oi tho  shaly
deposit will be reached two miles
Irom tbe present falls, and then the
rushing water -will have more than
it oan do to wash away the solid
precipice over which it will be projected.   Iron suggests that it would
M ft waste .ol time to attempt to
estimate the number of centuries
that wili elapse before Niagara Falls
will  have  found their permanent
site.
Children Cryfor Pitcher's Castoria
In the senato, on the 15th instant,
Hon. Senator Molnnes asked the
government why the erection of tho
necessary   buildings,  and   farming
operations   in connection with tho
proposed experimental farm in this
province,   had   been  delayed.    In
supporting   his   question,   Senator
Mclnnes went briefly into the   history of the matter.   He said: "In
1886 an act was passed' providing
for the establishment of an  experimental farm in tho  maritime   provinces, one at  the  city of Ottawa,
ono in Manitoba, one or moro in the
Northwest Territories, and one   for
the province of  British   Oolumbia.
A fow weeks   after the act was
passed Prof; Saunders paid a visit
to British Columbia and the Northwest, for   tho purposo   of  making
selections of- sites for those farms.
No action was taken, however, by
the government that year.    The following  your  the  same gentleman
paid a second visit to British Columbia, and   seven or eight months
afterwards, us the government did
not appear to take any action, I
placed a notice on tho paper, on tho
15th April last, asking the government if the site had been selected
for tho experimental furm in British
Oolumbia.   I received tho following
reply from the leader of the government, that a portion of tlie Agassi/,
estate  had  been selected for tbat
purposo and that preparatory work
would  commence  on   the farm as
soon  as  practicable,    I asked the
leader of the government if he meant
by that statement that operations
would bogin on tho farm that same
year, and tho answer was: 'I suppose so,'   Now another year has
elapsed and nothing has been done,
whereas  in   Manitoba,   I  believe
the   experimental farm   at  Brandon   is   in   full   operation.    The
one  in   the   Territories,   situated
at   Medicine  Hat, is also in full
operation, and I want to know why
there is this discrimination against
British Oolumbia V   Hon.  Senator
Abbott  replied as follows :   "Tho
actual reason why there  has   been
delay in putting up these buildings
has been that tho title bas not been
completed   yet,     There   ure some
difficulties to be   cleared   up   still
about it, although tho   government
are sanguine thnt they will now bo
able to get these difficulties removed.
They are so coniidont on lhat  subject that they propose to commence
the farming operations this spring,
The buildings they do not propose to
put up until those   difficulties   are
cleared away, but they   will   erect
this spring the necessary sheds for
sheltering cattle, and probably nny
small buildings required for employes
and   they will   proceed   with   the
regular farming operations as if tho
buildings wore there.   Thn erection
of the   buildings  themselves   will
have to bo   postponed   until  next
year."   Senator Molnnes:   "Then
these farming operations will proceed this spring V' Senator Abbott:
"Yes; that is what  I   understand
from the minister  of  agriculture."
This answer is a little more committal   than tho leader of tho government's   "I   suppose so," quoted
abovo, and it seems reasonable to
expect, from all   tho  information
elicited   by   Senator Mclnnes' inquiry, that operations will actually
be prosecuted on tbe experimental
farm, at Agassiz's, this season.

JUICY  RATTLESNAKE.
Properly  Coobed  It  Makes  a   Dish   Fit
for Kjugl auit Kplcures,
•Thoro is something about iho taste of
the aieastola^cung and tender chicken,
whei. it ntis been done to a turn and aaa
juat tho right ijind of gravy served with it,
that reminds me or rattlesnakes." This
was the remarkablo manner in whioh
Coronel Harden dcott, ono of tho civil engineers of the Missouri Pacific- opened up a
new train of thought at dinner at tho Grand
Pacific—which .dinner, hy t&&-tvay, became
thereafter morely a hollow from tlie Chica*
KoA'ew« reporter wbo was participating in
tho joromouid-j. "I gather," continued
Colonel Scott, "from tho.amazement nnd
surpiiso that you manifest, tbat you h»yo,
novei eaten rattlesnakes. Let me tell you
that thero are very lew of tho older school
of tht regular army men who vwiro stationed
en tho piulns who havo uot tried them-.*ua
noboo.v ever ate rattlesnake onco without
warning to oat it again, Tho flavor ia balf
. wa> jet-veer, tbat of a youug aad tender
•oreast of a spring awoken and tho bqllj-iitl'
euiof red snapper. UI courso you've got
io get ydiu* laiiOanako beforo be becomes a
run im.ch. An old ■■ no" is just us tough at)
a iiuul* ot jerked buffalo meat, but a youos
Buako js a delicacy tbat appeals to overy
man's palate.
"It was General A. J. Smith, now of St.
Louis, who ilrat put mo on to the dish. Wo
woro out on tbo plains long beforo Genoral
Smith won famo with Grant lu tbo campaigns about Vicksburg, and Smith bud a
good deal or trouble getting us youngsters
to try tbo new lood. Wo rapidly became
convert!-, howover, aud 1 havo novor since
seen ono of tho&ofut, juicy prairie rattlers
but I have wanted to cook him and spread
tho rattlcenako cult among tbo gentiles
ovorv whoro.
"You must bo very, careful that you kill
yom snako properly. It lie has any chance
to bito himself blsfloshis unfit for human
food, iloncc the best way is to bold his
head down with a forked stick until you
havo a cimuco to cut It off. Tnon hang tbo
body up after skinning it, in some place
whoro tbo air will bavo plenty of chance to '
blow on it, and after it has beon up a couplo
of hours loott it over carefully, If there Is
any greenish spot any where throw it away
and hope for better luck next time. If it is
all a healthy, yellowish white cut it up into
pieces about six mches long and skewor a
big Bllco ot bacon with oaoh i-ection. Then
fry and you have odisn flti'or aking-es-
pcciully if you have some good mealy pota-
tot-.» tukeu In tix ashes to go with tho meat.
"Whilo General Smith was really tbe
pioneer of rattlesnake hunting' and oating
anions; tho army men, quite a number of the
old school officers havo fallen In love wltb
tho dish and got It whenever they ean.
Gonoral Sheridan, they toll mo, ts an enthusiast on tho subject, and wbon President
Arthur made that trip into the Yellowstone
Purk, Stlcridan cooked a dish of rattlers for
tho party, which nobody enjoyed moro than
tbo Prosident.
"Tho meat when cooked breaks into flakes
like fish. Itls very succulent and nourishing, and the gravy has a flavor of its own
that must bo tasted to bo understood. Somo
of tho darkies down our way in Arkansas
mako a soup from tho rattlers which they
claim Is excellent, but I always thought It
was rather insipid, Tbo meat Ib a tittle too
sweot to make up well into a soup."
LINCOLN'S  MOTHER.
Her Neglected Grave in the Silent Woods
of Hooslordom.
In a neglected piece of woodland on tbo
outskirts of Lincoln City, in Spencer County, is tho grave of President Lincoln's
mother, writes a St. Louis Qlobe-Dcmocrat
correspondent from Geutryville, Ind. A
marble slab four feot In height and almost
burled in a dense growth ol weeds and dog
wood, bears this inscription:
NANOY HANKS LINCOLN,
: MOTI1EH of :
: PRESIDENT LINCOLN. -I
; Died October 5, A. D. 1818, aged 86 :
: years.   Erected by a Friend of :
; Her Martyred Son, 1879. '   :
At the foot of tho grave is a small marble foot-stone with tho letter "N. H. L.»
engraved upon it. Surrounding this grave
aro tho graves of seven otber persons, but
thero aro no stonos or monuments to
identify tho occupants of any of thom, and
all aro sadly neglected. The deserted spot
is but a short distance from tbo highway,
but it is so situated that It can bo reached
only by crossing cultivated fields. With
tho propor efforts tho place might bo made
very attractive, howovor, and thero is somo
talk among tho peoplo hero of beautifying
It and erecting a moro costly stone over tbo
Lincoln grave, Tho place is seldom visited
by strangers and rarely by tho people living hereabouts.
Not moro than two hundred yards north
of tho grave is tho spot upon whieh stood
tho house in which lived prosident Lincoln
whilo a young man. It was mado of logs, of
course, and was situated on a small riso of
elayiah looking ground. Not a vestige of
tho old structure remains.
Tho writer frequently visited tho houBO
beforo it succumbed to tbo ravages of timo
and tho elements, as bis uncle lived on and
cultivated for years that which has passed
into history as tho Lincoln farm. Just back
of tho spot whoro tho houso used to stand
runs tho Cannellton Branch of tho road.
Timo bas nearly obliterated all traces of
tho Llncolns hero, savo tho lonely grave in
the deserted wood.
Lincoln City Is so namsd becauso it Is
situated on tho sito of tho old homestead.
It had a population of about two dozon families and Is tho junction of tho Evausvillo,
Cannellton and Kookport division of the
Louisville, Evansvillo & St. Louis railroad,
Somo Eastern capitalists a few years ago
mado an attempt to boom the plaeo, but, despite tbo magnetism of the name, tho boom
was not successful, and it Is vory doubtful
if tbo placo ever grows in population, as
tho laud surrounding it is of a vory poor
quality.
Somo of tho old inhabitants of this vicinity toll how, in 1844, when Lincoln was an
elcctor-atrlarge on tho ticket with Henry
Clay, ho visited tbo homo of hts boyhood,
squared his book up against tbo old stono
school-house and talked to his old friends
and neighbors.
THE  SULTAN'S   FIDDLERS.
His Turkish M-r-Jesty Stands No Nonsense
from Uli Musicians.
Most of tho tales about Abd-ul-Hamld
aro, indeed, trivial enough. Tboy mainly
illuBtrato his fboblo-miudndtioss and caprice. Tako thn ono of the court pianist
Ono day hia.-Imperial Majesty Bat In his
imperial palace cutting out sllhouttes of
black papor as a solapb from tho cares of
state. All at onco ho called for soft music,
and bado his court pianist play a polka.
Tho latter, thinking to pleaso tho sovereign
moro, Bat down at tho instrument and
thumped out tho " Imperial March" with
all duo onorgyand fervor. Not a word escaped tho lips of tho sovereign, and tbo
pianist nevor gavo tho matter a thought
until that evoning, whon a messenger from
Yildiz informed him that tho Sultan had no
furthor neod of his services. In other
words, ho was cashiered—deprived of his
appointment, hia houso and a salary of £600
a yenr. Alas I a wrong tuna wilt suffice te
ruin a man in Turkey.
Another timo, during a pantomime nt the
tho oourt theater of Yildiz, Dussap Pasua
played tho "Imperial March" whilo a jib*
bering jackass brayed and pranced about
tho stage. Tho Sultan was furious ut hearing his own sacred and particular march
played as an accompaniment to tbo dancing
of a common donkey, and ho dismissed poor
Dussap on tho spot Tho peuttont Pasha
wus, howovor, afterwards restored to imperial favor, as tho whole affair proved te bo
nothing moro than a court Intrigue to work
bis disgrace.
With his musicians tho Sultan bu always
boon capricious, His pot violinist, Wondra,
wished to loavo tho court and go to Paris,-to
study thoro with the best ot musters. A
potition was accordingly presented to his
Imperial Majesty, who abrubtly tore it up,
flung tho pieces uttho mossongcr, and said:
"Why should ho study) Is It tooarn monoy?
If bo wants that, my treasury is open; lot
blm help himself, and stop hero. I wish It."
Bo, yvlliy-niliy, Wondra bad to aUy.

Tlio sunken snag on the point u short
distance above the B. C. cannery has
commenced operations for tliis season.
Vianen's fino oolachan w_ was almost
destroyed by coming in contact .with it
on Tuesday. The Uoiomah has called attention to this snag on many occasions, but without' effect. Many
poor fishermen suffered severely last
summer by having their nets destroyed
on this obstruction, ami surely it is
time that something was dono to causo
its removal. Perhaps tho board of
trado will tako tho matter in hand.

The Provincial Exhibition.
Tho committoe having the preparation of tho prize list iu hand aro busy
revising and preparing the catalogue of
prizes for the forthcoming exhibition.
It is important that this list should bo
devised on a considerably larger und
more liberal scale than on any previous

have a valuable suggestion to offer, or
a special prize to donate, will immediately communicate with the secretary
of the Agricultural Association, T. ll.
Pearson, Esq., at thia cily, as within
a week tho prize list must he closed
and placed in tho hands of tho printer.
Several special prizes, wo aro informed, havo been already added to the
Jist. We hopo to seo others follow.
Every citizen should take a personal
interest iu tho exhibition, and in sonic

Gone to Scuttle.
Grant the painter, ia missing, and
his most intimate friends admit that he
haa skipped to Soattlo, the paradise of
Pacific coast defaulters. Grant settled in Westminster with a great and
glorious flourish of trumpets, and a
few worn ont paint pots and brushes.
He was enterprising, liberal and progressive. Ho advertised hugely to
show that be was a man of business
and method; but there must havo boon
a lank somewhere iu his business
bump, a8 ho failed to pay up for the
advertising. He subscribed the handsome Bum of 820 to tho Exhibition
Fund, but as he forgot to hand ovt-r
tho amount in question beforo leaving
for his now home, some people ure
mean enough to say he might havo
"done it up brown" and subscribed
8500. In bis anxiety to get away ho
left a number of workmen unpaid, and
ulso -failed to settle a number of accounts with other parties. Grant has
gone to Puget Sound, where ho will
likely play tho same game ou the unsuspecting Yankees.
Wedding Ihluifs.
Au event whioh has been looked
forward to with a considerable degreo
of intereat for somo weok?, especially
in Molhodist church circles, took placo
tliis forenoon. Tho happy affair was
the marriage of Marion Lee, oldest
daughter ol:H. L. DeBeck, Esq,, J. P.,
tn James Alexander, becond son of Alderman Thos. Cunningham. The ceremony, which wub performed by the
Uev. J. H. White, took placo nt tho
residence of the bride's father in tho
presence of some 25 guests, all relatives of tho high contracting parties.
The bride,who was dressed in a handsome and neat fitting travelling costume, was supported by her sister,
Miss Georgio DoBcck, while Mr. H.
M. Cunningham acted as beat mnn for
the groom, At the conclusion of th.
ceremony, a sumpt uotis wedding break
fast was served, during the progress of
wliich many hearty wishes were expressed for the future happiness and
prosperity of tho newly wedded couple.
Thu happy couple wero mado the- recipients ot many handsome and useful
presents, thn most notable among
which was a purse of gold presented to
the protty bride by tho congregation
of tho Methodist church, with whom
as choir oraaniBt sho was a general and
deserved favorite About 11 o'clock,
amidst showors of rico ami old shoes
the bride and bridegroom left by carriage for Vancouver, en route for Portland, whero tho honeymoon will bo
spent. The OolOMMan extends
warmest congratulation.
A Fin-Mull tilth
Tho caso of Jessie Rivers, charged
with larceny, which camo beforo the
polico court this morning, will bu of
great interest tu many of our readets,
as her history is pretty well known.
She was formerly un inmate of a disputable house in this city, but through
the untiring efforiB of a number of
Ohristain ladies ahe was persuaded to
abandon her lifo of sin. One of these
charitable ladies took thu girl, who
was extremely penitent at the time, to
her house, and gave her a home so
that sho might, not be forced hy pover
ty or other circumstances to return to
a wicked life. For many months Jessie remained with tho kind lady, who
treated her liko a sister and did everything in human power to wean tho
girl completely from her old habits.
When tho euro seemed complete a situation was procured for tho girl with
a well known family, and for u time
she gave overy satisfaction. Two
weeks ago her employers missed a few
small articles, and a few days later
some jewelry disappeared. The police
wero informed of theso losses, and
Chief Pearce at oni.'o decided that
Jessie was the guilty party. Investigation proved that thu girl had latterly been in tho habit of visiting her old
haunts, and this confirmed tho chief's
suspicions. A search of hor effects resulted in finding several of the misting
articles, and, as n consequence, her arrest followed. Tho case will be investigated at the police oourt to-morrow.

aud all the members being present. A

to let the contract to other parties,
ltBPOKT,
To thcRetve and Council of Richmond:
Gestmsmei*—As your delegate appointed to interview the Govermnont to
Und out their intention with regard to
the North Ann bridges, I bog to report
as follows:
That I presented myself at the Government buildings, Victoria, ou the morning
of the 9th inst., and, as I found tho Hon.
Chief Commissioner of Lands aud Works
was absent, I handed n copy of resolution
forwarded to bim, to tho Hon, Provincial
Secretary.
The latter gentlemen said in reference
thereto, that lio was surprised that the
council should look upon the action of
tlie Govermnont in this matter as being
a breach of faith, and could not see whoro
tbey had any grounds for so considering
it. By way of explanation bo stated
that, although the authority of the vote
oftho house on appropriations did not
extend beyond the 'lOth June, the money
could be hold aud mado available by an
order of the lieut.-governor*in*council for
three months longer, which would bo
done, without doubt, if there was any
courso decided on and construction commenced before tho cud of tho fiscal year.
He stated also that, although no definite proposition could bo obtained from
the C. 1. It. Co., now, ho believed thero
was some grounds to hope that that company would yet decide on carrying out
noxt year the proposition made by them,
and in that case, or in ease of any other
arrangements being medo for tho construction of the proposed bridges agreeable to the Government, between the
time the present appropriation lapses and
next session of the legislature, he felt
certain the government would take steps
then to have tho appropriation re-voted.
In view of the full statement contained
the communication of the Hon, Prov.
Sec'y herewith submitted, it ii needles*)
for me to make n lengthy report.
Before closinc- this report, however, it
is my duty and it gives mo pleasure to
atate that the Hon. Prov. Sec'y received
.... with cordiality,and, notwithstanding
the resolution, which ho considered unjustifiable, he discussed the matter with
.... with great patience and consideration,
allowing me to see him for a long time in
the morning and again before bis department closed, and the length of bis com-
_ unication, herewith submitted, shows
that he has not treated our request lightly nor disposed of the matter without due
consideration.
Respectfully submitted,

[Copy .( Communication.]
Victoria, April 10,1881),
Di'Ait Slit:—Referring to our conversation ycHlerrioy, und  replying to the letter
nnd resolution you left with me, I beg to
sny!
1. I do nol Iblnk the council was Justified lu concluding that there wan nny dls-
position on the pari of llie government to
i'i-i'ul; fuilli v.ilii llio municipality in the
matter of bridging tho North Anns, When
llie government cun sen ted to obtain  an
appropriation of 810,000towards the const nietfon of the proposed bridges it seemed lo ho the Impression on all   bands tlmt
520,000 wtut an outside estimate. Indeed,
many of those most directly Interested Insisted Hint tlie wdii; enitld bo done for
very muoh loss. When, therefore, tlie
government agreed lo bear half the cost It
wiisoii llie distinct understanding tbat
the one half would not exceed Ill),n00. It
would bo idle to suppose that, if doublo
lhat sum should be required, the government would ntlll be under obligation to
provide one half, aud that refusal would
boa breach of faith. It was really half of
a supposed ascertained quantity lhat was
m-riertnken, and, when tho tenders revealed ttie fact that tho maximum estimate would hnvo to be exceeded nearly
CO por cent., tho government could not
fairly be accused of breaking faith In declining to make up the excess In whole or
In part.
2. 'i'lic government conbl hardly be held
responsible for tho delay which has occurred. They mode every effort, and I
did everything ln ray power personally, lo
experilte tho approval of the pluns nt
Ottawa, The (J. It. Co. have (doubtless
Innocently enough}, been the principal
online of the delay, by, flrst, keeping us
walling so long for tbo plans their engineers wero preparing nnd, secondly, by
holding out tho hope that tbey would
take up the scheme In connection with
tlielr own—an arrangement which It was
felt would bo in the intorest ol all parties
eoncorned,
U. Judging from tbe wording of the reso-
iutioii.onc might bo led to suppose lhat
the duty rested upon tho government of
Informing you of the fuct flint appropriations, If unexpended attboendof the lis.
cal year, lapse.   Every supply bill contains a provision to I but effect,;
i.anri it was
It. But there Is also in the bill a provision
enabling the lime to bo extended threo
montbs, In order to meet special ruses;
and there Is no reason to doubt, that, if
tbo work was underway, recourse would
be had to that expedient fn this case. Possibly the reason Mr. Hore did not refer to
tills provision was, ibat be was naturally
anxious toexpcdltomatters.
4. As I endeavored to explain to you
yesterday, there is no fund at tho disposition of the government to enable It. to
comply with the request of the council in
KofarnHcontrlbutlngof one half of Hie
balance of Iho |7|6W Is concerned. But
should It lie really decided to proceed at
once wll.li tho work, nnd abandon nil
hope of Mio railway cittilpanv taking It up,
I think It might he possible, wlih the
•:HUM placed In llie estimates as a gram to
the municipality, to squeeze out of (he
general district grant tlio *f2,7o0 necessary
to meet onu half of tho additional expense, provided tbo municipality should
bo prepared to provide tbo other half, with
tbe tiiirierstaiiriiug, of course, that tlie
uiunlclpnlhy wonld expect no further
giant for the fiscal year.
While making the above NUf-1'o-.tloii, I
may bn permitted  tn express,  the hope
tlialltipay.be doomed towalt till next
year, feeling, as I do, deeply I ni prefixed
with tho great advantage of having tbo
const ruction and maintenance of theie
bridges undertaken by the railway company.
lam Inclosing a copy of tho supply bill
for your Information, and have only to
ndd that there should bono time lost In
coining to a definite conclusion,
Yoars faithfully,
John Konsow,
Tuos. Kidd, itov. aee.
Kcevo ilichmonri Municipality,
On motion, the roport of Roovo
Kidd was adopted, and the reeve and
councillor Garratt wero appointed a
committee to communicate with tho
C. P, R. Co., with a view of obtaining
somo definite information respecting
their proposition to construct the
bridges.
The assessment roll was then taken
Up, revised in part, nnd hud over till
next meeting.
Tho council adjourned to meet on
Saturday next at 2 p. in.
April 20th the council met; present,
Reevo Kidd and councillors, .Stewart,
Garratt, Daniels and Blair. Minutes
of lait meeting adopted.
A communication was rond from I.
B. Fisher, manager of Bank of British
Columbia, Mew Westminster, endorsing 30 cancelled coupons, amounting
to 8000.00, boing one year's intorest on
$15,000 debentures ; also, a communication from Williams Bros, re Crick-
may's fence j received and referred to
George Turner, C. E , for his consideration and report thereon.
ItEI'ORT,
To the Reeve and Council:
Gkdtlemkn- — Your committee appointed to communicate with Mr.  Ab
bott, of tlio C, P. R. Co., In order to
obtain a more definite proposition than
that submitted by him respecting North
Arm bridges, beg to report as follows:
That they waited on Mr. Abbott on
Tuesday, the 10th inst., and made the
object of thoir mission known to him.
Ho stated in answer that he was not in
a position to make a more definite statement in regard to this matter than he
bad done in his communication under
date 20th ult. And in view of the uncertainty of these bridges being built as
a part of tho proposed railway across
the Delta, in time to meet the urgent
nud growing need of this municipality
within a reasonable time, and of the
uncertainity ot his company being willing, when they come to consider the
mutter more fully, to accept the amount
appropriated by the government and
this municipality for these bridges as a
bonus to build combined railway and
tiallico bridges, and of the seeming growing disinclination of the company to
build sueh combined bridges, and of the
many other objections that might be
raised to such bridges being undertaken
by this company, he thought itwould be
unwise for him to encourage a hope on
the part of the people of this municipality
that this company would build these proposed bridges as desired by this council.
Respectfully submitted,
Tuos. Kidd,
B. W. Garratt.
April 20,18S0.
