CORAESPONDEK
The street uaming and numb .ring
by-law, in the abienu of the chairman,
was laid over.
The Park loan by-law was brought
forward, but unaccompanied by the
plans. All the councillors present
wero very anxious to proceed with the
by-law, but owing to the absence of
the chairman it was laid over.
Aid. Keary proposed lhat a meeting
bo called for Thursday night This
proposal was dealt with later.
Tho civic eleotion by-law was read
a first time, and, the rules of order
having been suspended, it received its
Becond reading. The counoil then went
into committee of the whole on the bylaw, Aid. Shiles in the chair. The bylaw was read by clauses.
Tho proposal from Aid. Keary tbat
the polling place for the Fourth Ward
bB in the surgery of tho Royal Columbian Hospital, was adopted.
Aid. Curtis said it was a mighty
snggutive place for the next oouncil to
bo elected in.
Aid. Curtis enquired if a bylaw
similar to this one oould not be drawn
up for the water works commissioners'
election?
The clerk said the origiual by-law
could not be altered.
Tho committee rose and repotted
the by law complete with amendments.
The by-law was, on motion, read a
third time, and ordered signed, sealed
and published according to the usual
form-
There was some discussion on the
water works question, principally with
reference to the lato heavy advance in
tho price of iron,
NOTICES OF MOTION.
Moved by Aid. Calbick, aecondid
by Aid. Reid; That the finance committeo be authorised to arrange at the
D-uk of Montreal for an overdraft
sullioient to meot current expenses in
connection with the city water works,
and to deposit the water works' debentures aB collateral security for such
overdraft until said debentures are
sold,   Carried.
Aid. Keary said the finance committee ought to receive some intimation of
such things. This was thu socond time
he had been so treated; he had nevor
hoard of it before.
Aid. Curtis said that if it were possible tbe counoil ought to try and get
tho water commissioners by-law into
shape on the spot.
His worship said that if they oould
do anything with it at all they should
go ahead with it at onco.
Tho olerk reported that ho had received no information on the subject,
so the matter shared the common sad
fate of the other by-laws, and was laid
over once more.
Aid. Curtis gave notice that at the
next meeting of the counoil he would
introduce a by-law to fix the number
of aldermen to bo elected for 1800.
Also a by-law fixing the salary of the
mayor for the year 1890.
Also a by-law for the election of
water oommiisiouers and for fixing the
salary of the same.
The council adjourned to meet again
Thursdny evening.

Editor Columbian: Sir—Tha. is true;
bnt the reports in onr local Truth are
stranger still. Read the report of proceedings at the nominations published in
this morning's tone of that famous periodical and you will be astonished. The
reporter may bo tbe ghost of Rip Van
Winkle, He remember, the good old
times when eloquence at the hustings
was the order of the day, but he wits not
pre ent in human shape at tho nomina-
tiO-B yesterday; and yet he gravely assures tho readers of Truth that McDonough , Elliott, McNair and Fagan were all
there, all eloquently recommending the
two candidates to the electors. Everyone who was present at the meeting
knows that the nominations were made
in wi-iti*'*-, and that not one of the four
nominators was preaent at the meeting.
If this ghost of the great Van Winkle
continues to supply our local Truth vith

Politics aad Ike Oreer lots.
Editor Columbian: Sir—I would
like, through the columns of your valuable paper, to say a few words to the
electors of Now Westminster in regard
tothe manner in which Mr. Thomaa
Cunningham Is conducting his canvass,
I understand Mr. Cunningham poses as
an out and out supporter of the present
government, and in fact claims to have
the confidence of the existing government. What grounds he has fordoing
so I leave tothe good sense of the electors, but it is a well known faet tliat
Mr. Sam Greer has como over from Vancouver to electioneer for Mr. Cunningham. Now it is equally woll known that
Mr. Greer is a deadly opponent of the
preient government, and more especially
of the premier, Hon, John Robson, In
fact has stated that he Is going to spend
his time and money to bave him defeated
at the next-general election. If possible.
Now, Mr. Cunningham hu joined hands
with Mr. Greer and bas promised (if
elected) to force tho government to give
titles to the parties who have purchased
tho Greer lots. Now, there is only one
of two things, either Mr. Cunningham Is
in direct opposition to the government,
or he Is grossly misleading tlie electors.
If he ts in opposition, New Westminster
don't want him, as we have had Inthe
past too much opposition; but, on the
other hand, if be is misleading the electors and trying to sail on undor false colors, he Ib not worthy the support of any
right thinking man,
Inthe case of Greer, no doubt he thinks
ho has a grievance against the government and ia acting tn good faith, but as
I understand that the government soma
three years ago issued to the C. P. R. Co.
a crown grant for the land Mr. Greer
claims, which makes the matter a dead
issue, and I think no government after
issuing a crown grant would dare change
tho fHimc. Should they do ro, every opponent of sny government wonld bo at
their mercy.
Now, I think that Mr. Corbould
struok the key note In hia able address
when ho pledges himself to support sa*
act whtch wilt place our government In
the asms position as other governments
of our Dominion, that is so as they can be
sued; then If Mr. Greer has any claim
against the government he oan get redress in the courts, and I think parties
holding Greer lota, should they consult
their own Interests, vttl support Mr.
Corbould, and by doing so will plaoe a
man In the local house that is both able
and willing to see that justioe is done his
constituents. Eliotox,

Till" nddrosses of the two   candidates for legislative   honors uro now
boforo tho public in thoso  columns.
If auy one wishes to know just how
mnch Westminster wants, and must
havo, they are respectfully  referred
to those documents.    Seriously, both
add "esse., display uu intimate knowlodgo und an intelligent appreciation
on tho part of their authors   of the
requirements of  this   constituency,
whi e both, it must be admitted, ure
circmsBcribed in their horizon with
regnrd to provincial  politics.   This
being  the   closing session   of the
pre. eht parliament, os Mr. Corbould
rem -rks, ho does not think it nocossary to detail his views as to general
legit lation.     Mr.   Cunningham  is
evidently of the same  mind, as lie
conl inns himself  to   questions  immediately affecting  this  city  and
dist.'ict.     Westminster  first,  and
last would appear to bo  the   motto
of b ith candidates.   As   this spirit
is tc a great extent  the   actuating
principle in our  provincial  politics
ut present, it follows   that  disposition and ability to look out for Numbor One—Number   One   being the
inte'*e..ts of  his   constituency, and
not simply his own private interests
—is a necessary  virtue   in a candidate.     Westminster, with   its   ab-
surc-Iy small  representation in com*
pariioa   with   some  other places,
certiinly   requires    that    its   single :epresentative should be a faithful   and  ablo    champion    of  its
righ.s    and     interests,    and    at
the    samo    time     qualified    to
act    intelligently,   creditably, and
for   tlie   common   good,   on   all
questions   of   general    legislation.
The most important issue whioh will
come before the next and Inst session
of the present parliament is undeniably the redistribution of scats question.   Both candidates seem to realize this, and to bo practically unanimous on till other questions which
they touch besides.   The unprejudiced elector will not  In. able to Hud
grounds   for doubting   the present
sincerity of either, and the only question seems to   be, Who is likely to
prove the most faithful   and able in
carr.'ing out his promises . Personal
predilection is bound  to   largely affect this verdict.   Notwithstanding,
however, the similarity of policy and
views of the t«*o   candidates, there
is every indication that the contest
will be   an   interesting and   close
one.      	
P--__rn.__i_ and  it-  affairs   have
and prisons, where there is no  classification of prisoners and whore tho
comparatively    innocent juveniles
are educated in crime by the vicious
and depraved ; against keeping men
in idleness in prisons, when reason
und the publio intorest call for their
employment at somo useful   trade;
against turning criminals out upon
the world again, detested and abhorred, and to prey upon society,
instead of the state providing   some
means, by employment on   public
works or other honest livelihood, to
enable thom to regain their former
status as   honorable  citizens.   All
these points were emphasized and
a lurge amountof valuable information was  conveyed to tho public
which could not fail to convince all
doubters, of tho absolute wickedness
of tho present system   of so-called
punishment, under  which crime increases, und the public, us well as
the  prisoners, is  beiug  punished.
The operation of grinding  out   criminals in tho Toronto police court
was described with great effect, this,
of course, being the great  criminal
mill of the provinco, although courts
scurcoly second to it in this   regard
may bo found elsewhere in Canada.
The  injustice of many of the sentences imposed in police and higher
courts was boldly   criticized nnd by
mon entitled by their legal   attainments and experience in   affairs to
challenge tho decision   even of the
highest judges, one of tho  speakers
being the Hon, S, II. Blake.   A do-
tnand was made  for  tlie  Ontario
government to appoint a commission
to investigate the  question of crimo
and its causes, the condition of the
provincial prisons and reformatories,
and the steps to be taken to  bring
about needed reforms.   Stress was
laid upon tho necessity for  proyid
ing houses of detention   to   wliich
persons accused of crimes and offences should bo taken pending  their
trial; so that thoso who were shown
to be not guilty might not bo  subjected to tho stain of tho  gaol.   It
was always demanded that in overy
prison .there should be snitablo  employment, thus reducing the cost of
incarceration and   providing  some
honest trade for thosa who must return to mingle  with their  fellow
men.   It was held, too, thut the policy of indeterminate sentences, rather than   fixed   sentences, should be
adopted, thus supplying to the prisoners   in   provincial  institutions a
strong motive to good   conduct and
self improvement, making the period
of their detention   depend   largely
upon themselves.    It is evident tlmt
a popular agitation along these lines
will be carried on  by  many   nblo
men, and already public   suntimont
is being rapidly crystalized in behalf
of the movement.    It is clear  thnt,
not withstand iny the excellent   system of popular education in Ontario,
and   the efforts of churches, Sunday
schools, nnd moral influences of every
kind,   the    p-ople   are    hecoiuin_.
alarmed over the existence uf m.
much crime in th uir   midst.    They
ure, no doubt, correct, thinks the exchange  quoted   from, in   believing
that the criminal punishment system
as administered by   the   provincial
authorities ia spreading rather than
reducing crime, and they are   moving in the right direction   to   briny
about tho needed  reform.    The agitation will be watched with interest
throughout tho Dominion.

the i-efctb of King Luiz, a sovereign

The .-"O'-tuguese have been famous
in- w if..rih£ adventurers frotn the
■•aHi'.t titm.fi and have always been
r_nii -It-We for their success in dealing Aith savage peoples. It is
clain ed that Portuguese traders had
penetrated every nook and cranny
of A rica, from tbe Zambesi to the
Con*.. ind Niger, on the north, and
the'/t!,zibnr oast on the east, in
sear_-_ of gold nud ivory, long he-

yellows and reds in their colonies,
Frotn th*™* unions a curious race has
developed that is known throughout
the tropics for keeuess nnd unscrupulous!^ _s a_ traders. British credi*
tors of the Portuguese government
are numerous, mid tho recent trouble at Delugoa }hy was in the nature nf an effort to throw off the
yoke imposed hy British capital and
enterprise, fn spite of their adventurous character the Portuguese
are the most conservative people in
the world. It seems that in ideas
and habits, they nro incapable of

thoy drop farther in tlio rear of the
march of European progress. Tliu

full employment for his abilities in
tho work of internal reform, of
which the kingdom stands greatly in
need.
Great Britain mined almost io,
000,000 more tons of coal, iron and
other minerals last year thun in
1887, and employed 10,000 more
men in the work, but fewer lives
were lost in the process. The total
number of fatal accidents was 885,
and of deaths occasioned thereby
960, being an increase of four in the
accidents, but a decrease of 01 in
the lives lost
Mr. Lu bouchere, speaking, at Glas
gow, recently, said the present government was as little likely to capitulate ns a cow that had got into a
clover-field. They know that n general election would sweep thern from
power, and ulso sweep a number of
their supporters from political life.
The political slavery wliich existed

Tho 30th day of September has
heen a pivotal ono in the history of
Frederick Douglass. On thut day
1838 he arrived in New York a fu-
gitivu slavo without friends, money
or food, and spent tho night on the
cotton bales. On tho same dato dl
years lator he embarked on the famous war ship Kearsarge as tlso minister of the United States to si foreign country. Douglass may well
exclaim: "What hath Owl wrought!"
Tho Whitehaven (Eng.) Uonrdof
Guardians have decided by ten votes
to nine that "the boys in the workhouse school bo taught shorthand."
Tho discussion that arose on the
resolution was entertaining. One
member, Mr. Hroithwaite, did not
approve of tho proposal, fearing that
they svould bo asked to introduce
music matters and pianos next. Mr.
Musgravo, another member, confessed that he had tried his hand ut
shorthand j he had loarnod to write
it, but could novor learn to read it.
Amid laughtor he added that "many
of the ratepayers oould not writo
longhand let alono shorlhad, and yet
thoy had to pny the rates."

I was stationed Rt Sooramungalum in
1875, whoro I formed a close friendship
with Tern Newdeftate, tho assistant traffic
munnger of the western section of the
I'.iiennnputnam railway, says a writer in
.'.umbers* Journal. He was a widower
und I was a bachelor, and, being the only
Europeans in the station, with tlio oxception of Major Nimrod, the Government
d-_.ri.it engineer, whose duties seldom
n lowed him to beat home,we naturally
spent a good many evenings at each other's
bungalows.
It was a very hot June evening, and Tom
mid I woro stretched ia long American
ciiuirs in tho veranda of my bungalow
smoltin-f our "trlchies," when ay "boy"
cumo to ask for my instructions about a
j"urnoy I had to make by train ontho following day to a station a few milea down
Urn line. .
The prospect was not a pleasant one, as
tlio lnnd wind was still prevailing, and I
■i.nl littlo inclination to face that parching,
(lory blast Therefore, I did not look for-
«itrd wltb eagerness to spending a day in
tho Dak bungalow at Sunkery Droog.   $&
"Why not go to-night?" asked Tom.T"I
am running a special -goods' to Potbanore
a*, twelvo o'clock, and you can be dropped
it'Suukery. Or bettcr.Btill—I will go with
you, aud wo will ride on the engine, the
coolest placo in the train by day or night"
[ readily closed with tbo offer, the chance
ol traveling by uight instead of by day at
tlmt time of tho year being too good to be
lost, and telling my boy to pack up a day's
provisions, not forgetting a bottle of Ex*
slinw nnd half a dozen Bodas, and ordering
..."I'l.-'.k chef to join him with his cooking
ul m&lsj Tom and I dosed off in our chairs
to be wakened at bulf-past eleven o'clock.
A tin™, hour precisely we were aroused by
tli - boy's monotonous "Saht Bah!" and we
were forthwith driven to tho railway station. {*»■■!■'_

Wnii our cheroots burning fragrantly wo
bowied alongvery chattily, and felt regretful that we had not a longer run before ub.
Nothing worthy of notice bad happened until the driver ordered his fireman to make
up tno furnace ■'•-,..•..
B_ .r mungalum being upward of two
hull,i.■■ d miles from the seo, coal or com-
pressed patent fuel would be too costly to
burn in tbo engines on account of the ex-
pon™_ of bringing lt from the coast; besides, coal perishes vory rapidly under a
troplcn-lBun. Therefore, the furnaces are
coiitstj uotod to burn wood, of which there is
a fun upply nvnilablo from tbo company's
juuglo reserves. Of courso, aU fuel is
pivi-itius, and drlvors must tako the fat
with the lean—that is, roots as woll as logs.
Now, snakes vory much affect the hollow
crevices of roots of old trees in India, and
thus they aro frequently carried into the
wood-yards at tho railway stations, and
tlieneo are occasionally transferred to the
ongino tenders.
Thia waa exactly our case.   As the fire-

nnd. springing at Compton, mode a vicious

look. I pulled the whistle and tbe old machine fairly shrieked. I 'plugged* myen
glne, for wo bad no air-brakes then, und 1
went off, shouting to my fireman us I did
so. I lauded in a patch of blackberry
bushes, nnd have a dun recollection of seeing the car loaded with oil whiz past me. 1
could hear the whiz of the drivers In the
back motion and tbe rattle of the brakes nn
the boys swung on them for dear lifo. 1
shut my eyes and listened for tho eras!:.
but it did not come. I looked up and the
wny car bad Btoppcd opposito mo, whilo the
passengers wero poking their heads out ol
tho windows of tho coach behind it, asking:
•What's tho matter?* I scrambled up the
fill and ran to the bead of tho train, nud
there I found thut tho bead-light I had Been
was on a lawn where a summer-night fes<
Uval was in progress. Thore woro ecvcrui
head-lights there, but this was placed In
such a manner that tho light shono full on
tho track, and looked exactly liko an approaching engine as wo swung around tin

DISPENSARY  HUMOR.
Even So Gru nnoino a Place as n HoBpltiil
Hub Its Funny Sido.
A woman wbo wns being treated fora
Btomaob difficulty at tho north end dispen
sary, writes Arlo Bates from Boston, found
ln tbo nsb heaps of the dump a bottlo cnu
tabling somo gruesome black mixture, and
tboncxt timo Bho presented herself for examination sho brought it with her.
"Doctor," sho said, "will Jcr plozo to
tasto o' that 1 I thought to take alittlo last
night; yo wouldn't belieyo tbo power o' dis.
tress I was in tho wholo blessed timo,"
"Distress !'* tbo doctor exclaimed in vex
atlon; "I'm glad of It. Didn't I toll you
tbat if you kept taking things I wouldn't
havo any thing moro to do with youl"
' "Yes, I kuow, doctor, an* I ax yer pardon
But I couldn't bear to waste lt, for fear it
might bo just tbo very modicino I'd need."
And when sbe wont away sho asked for
tbo bottle, as sbo had a Bister who was not
well and she thought it might help her.
Ou another occasion I happened to be In
tho room of tbodonlist ot tho dispensary
wheu thoro camo in an elderly Irishwoman
with her daughter, n strapping woman oi
two or threo and twenty. The mother was
urgingtho daughter tohuvoa tooth extracted, and lt became apparent from tbo conversation that thoy had boon thoro thodny
beforo, but tbat tho daughter's courage bud
not been brought up to tho slicking point.
This tlino, howovor, tho woman was persuaded to got Into tho chair and to allow t he
dentist to examine hor tooth; but upon the.
Inquiry which was tho offending tooth, the
Interesting foot was developed that there
wero nono of tho young woman's teoth par

superstition to which sbe and her mollie-
religiously held that whenever a woman
bore a child she must loso a tooth, they
had thought it best to have ono taken out
beforo it becamo painful.
"Which ono would you like mo to takt*

Tho members of the Westminster
football club naturally enough feel indignant over tho strictures passed
upon them by the Vanoouver News-
Advertiser last Sunday. The club, on
account of the visit of the governor-

obvious oven to the dullest intellect.
The intention of tbo club wua to havo
gone, aud but for the visit of hia excellency at that time would have done
so. If there is any blamo to be attached to any one, it must bo to Lord
Stanley for not fulfilling his engagements.

Teachers* Institute.
Ou Saturday last some of our city
teachers attended n meeting of the ex*
ecutive committee of tho mainland institute, nt Vancouver, whero tho committee concluded the final arrangements for tho coming meeting of the
institute which will be hold at the central school in that cily ou Hnd and 3rd
of January next.
According to present indications the
coining convention will bo tho most
successful yet hold on the mainland.
Though the institute is under mainland
management efforts are being made to
induce all tho teachers of tho province
to attend, and it is hoped that the
committee will be nblo to sccuro reduced rates ns usual from thu railway
and navigation companies.
Already over a dozen papers on educational subjects are forthcoming, and
tho committee havo sccurod the assistance of several prominent citizens
of Vancouver.
A now feature will bo a display of
pupils' work, and at lho closo of tho
so-siuns a good public entertainment
will be given under the management uf
lho Vancouver teachers.
Tralnrd Oar.-isii.i_
Mr. Alexander McLean wont down
to Victori- to-dny t. meet Oarsman
Bush in a rowing contest. The betting is iu favor of McLean; and those
who had tlio opportunity of teeing his
splendid work at Vancouvor last Dominion day feel quite confident that
ho can ruu away from anybody arouud
theso parts. Old (or middle) ago haa
uot cooled tho ardor of thia veteran,
for aquatic contests, and he is still able
to make it awfully warm work even
for renowned professionals. West*
iiiiii_u-.it-a feel that McLean ia, in a
manner, their champion, and Bhould
anticipations prove correct, it will be
another reason for her to feel proud of
her athletic citizens. Bush gave a
very pretty exhibition of his powers as
a sculler when he was here at the exhibition regatta. His part of that race
was a species of "walk-over," but.it
gave those who are qualified to judgo.a
good chance to see that he is no
amateur in the shell. His action with
the scuIIb is beautiful and his timo perfect; what his endurance is, is quite
another matter, that will be pretty
thoroughly tested m the coining   race.
