THE CRONIN MURDER TRIAL.
Chioa'jo, Nov. 13.—The tint matter
before'the court at the opening of the
Cronin ease to-day wu Judgo McCon-
liell'i ruling on tho queition raised at
yeaterday afternoon's session as to the
advisability of evidence relating to the
(jviiirrol of the 01an*na gael. Judge
McConuoll decided that the evidence
wns not admiiiablo and Ollicor MoKinnon was recalled for cross-examination.
In reply to questions by Mr. Hynes.
tlio witness said that Burke oxplalnod
to him that ho went under the name of
Coopor boeauso he wns afraid that two
men were watching him. Under cross
examination by Mr. Forrest MoKinnon explained that in the oourt in Win- ■
nipeg be did not testify that Burke
said his name was Cooper, because he
was not asked tho question. He waa
aaked several questions theie and answered them. Here he waa told to tell
his story. H. H. Jansen described the
surroundings of the Carlson cottage to
show that it was a lonely place. Sergeant Frankenfeld, of the United States
Signal Service, told about the state of
the weather on the night of tho 4th of
May, and a number of timo bills used
by \V. J. Froelich, the painter, for
whom Kunz under the mime of
"Kiii-jel!" worked in April, woro put
in evidence.
At the afternoon cession Judge
Longeneoker announced thnt iu view
of tho decision ruling out the testimony of Daniel Brown, the State
thought it v/uukt be useless uud waste
of time to go over any of the ground
mentioned in the opening address.
The purposo of the testimony te bo
given by Daniel Brown was to prove a
motive. Inasmuch, however, as the
State believed a motive had boen
proven already, the State would not
resist the court's decision. There was
but one mure witness to be called, n
Mr. Clancey, who would arrive in the
city to-morrow. With tho exception
of Clancey the State's case was closed.
Mr. Forieat asked that the defence be
givon until Monday morning for a
proper preparation of its case. After
a guod deal of argument, Judge McConnell cut off Mr. Forrest by announcing decisively that the court
would adjourn till 10 o'olook Saturday
when the State would conclude its evidence.
THE  BAKER'S STJIIKE.
London, Nov. 13.—The general
strike of the journeymen bakers,which
threatened to take place noxt Saturday
In tho event of a failure of the masters
to reduce the number of working hours
to ten per day, is probably averted.
Throughout all the conferences which
hove taken place between tho masters
ond the journeymen and until to-day
the masters steadfastly refused to concede tho deraandB of their emplyees,
ur oven to meet them ina satisfactory
compromise. But to-day ono of the
largest baking lirnia in London unconditionally surrendered and ilia difficult
to conceive reasonable grounds for tho
other masters to decline to follow thia
example. At tho beginning of the
trouble tho masters wore encouraged
by tho arrival of ' ■blackleg" bakers
from Germany in largo numbers, hut
many 1) f thoao have been taken euro of
by tho English union of bakers und the

MRS. BESAHT's LIBEL SUIT.
London, Nov. 13.—Tho evidence in
the case of Mra, Besaut, who ia suing
Rev. Dr. Hoskyns for libel in having
inveighed againat her aud her writings
from tho pulpit, ia extremely racy,
The action involves fundamental principles of morality and the result hinges
upon the jury's interpretation ot tho
publications which the preacher criticised and the degree of their limitation
of literary license in tho direction of
obscenity. Mrs, Besaut was the wife
of an English clergyman and left her
husband boeauso of their disagreement
upon questions as to the relation of the
sexes. Sho was friendly to a questionable extent with Charles Bradlaugh
and tho two collaborated on the book
callod "The Fruits of Philosophy,"
the publication of which was sup*
pressed. Subsequently Mr. Besant
secured a divorce from his wifo, in the
application uf which Mr. Bradlaugh'.
muiie appeared.

FALL ASSIZES.
(Oh ief Justice filr. I. B. Begbie, presiding.}
Wednesday Afternoon.
Michael  Cavanagh,   for scdomy-
The prisoner complained that he had
nu counsel to defend him, and Mr.
McColl, at the request of his lordship,
undertook the defense.
Mr. Hamirersley, for the crown,
said that the case was fortunately likely to bu short, as it was terriblo in the
extreme. He would call such ovidence
as wuuld provo the guilt of the prisoner.
Mr. McColl objected to tbo proposal
of Mr. Hammersley to call the victim
of the assault, Herbert Roberts, on tho
ground that he was insane nnd therefore unlit to givo evidence.
Mr. Hammersley was directed by
his lordship to confine himself to the
charge and shortly explained the nature uf the crime.
Herbert Roberts took the stand, and
a discussion as to tho admissabtlity of
witness's evidence took place. The
witness said he believed a person who
told a falsehood would be punished by
no One ever believing him again; he
finally .aid that ono who lied would go
to hell.
His lordship said a man was much
more likely to cook his evidence who
came into court with an Idea that he
knew how everything would go than
one who did not think so.
Mr. Theodore Davie examined, and
the witness said he had seen prisoner
at the jail, three weeks ago, in the
kitchen; from this point the evidence
was so completely disgusting as to be
perfectly unfit for even hearing. No
one could doubt the veracity of the
witness and his recitals were heard in
deep silence.
The jury retired ot 6:20 p. m. and
returned at 6:35 with a verdict of
guilty of the attempt to commit the
offense.
His lordship said that the jury had
givon the case a most patient investigation and had taken a very merciful
view of it.
The prisoner had nothing to say, but
threw himself on the mercy of the
court,
Hts lordship said that to sentence a
man of prisoner's advanced ago to ten
years would be tantamount to Bending
him to prison for lifo. The offense
was one of tho most serious on the
wholo penal code, and he hoped that
in sentencing him to fuur years in the
penitentiary he would endeavor to
mend his ways and behave himself
better.
The grand jury came in about 6:30
p. m. aud presented true bills in Uo-
ninara'. Spring; Jim (murder), Rossitor,
Brennan, Ching Chow; and no bills in
tho cases of Regina vs. Brown, and
Dominy.
His lordship hoped the grand jury
would finish their business to-day, and
explained to them that until he left
tho oity they wore liable to be sum-
summoned nt any time before the
court.
The court adjourned at 7 o'clock.
Thursday, Nov, 14.
Court resumed its sittings this morning at 10:10 o'clock, and the petit jury
having answered to their names, the
case of
Regina vs. Ah Zing, assault with intent to disfigure and disable one Ah
Sam, was called. Mr. MoColl appeared for the defence and pleaded "not
guilty" for his olient.
Mr. Hammersley charged tho jury
on behalf of tho crown, and summarised the salient points of tho case, and
said he would produce evidenco to
prove satisfactorily that the prisoner
was guilty.
Ah Sam, the victim, was first sworn,
and his evidence is an epitome of the
whole ense. Witness was engaged aB
a cook iu a houso at Chilliwack, and
un tho duy of the assault, October 6,
Ah Zing entered the house, and with
the salutation, "I'll hit you," picked
up a hatchet and struck witness on the
face with it.
Witness and the prisoner had had
no quarrel. Witness wanted to get hll
brother to go with him to the mill at
Chilliwack, and prisoner objected on
the ground that witnesss brother
might leave the country, as prisoner,
witness's brother, and another man
wore partners in a farm, and were
$100 in arrears on the same, and prisoner was afraid witness's brother was
going to run away on that account and
leave prisoner and tho other man in
the lurch.
After an almost interminable jab-
boring of Chinese, the witness went
around and showed his injured cheek
to the jury; one of the latter seized
hiin hy the ear and slowed his head
around in summary fashion, to the
groat amusement of the court.
The Chinese witnesses were sworn
by the burning of paper.
Ah Yuen, who separated the combat
ant*, gave his evidence, and said he
saw prisoner with tlie hatchet in his
hand aftor ho separated witness and
prisoner during tho fight; there was
blood on tho axe and witness's face
bleeding.
Dr. Beckingsalo, sworn, said he had
examined the wound on Ah Sam's face
and thought it might have beon caused
by a blow ot a hatchet.
Mr. Hammersley addressed tho jury
for the prosecution, and said that Chinese ideas as to the seriousness of the
brother of witness, Ah Sam, attempting to tun away, were most probably
very different from ours. He thought
the jury would admit that it had been
dearly proved that the assault had
taken place as described by the witnesses. The prisoner had shown callousness when charged with the crime
by saying he did not care, There could
be no reasonable doubt that the prisoner had committed this assault, and
the jury ought to have no hesitation
in bringing in a verdict of guilty.
Mr. McColl, for the defence, said he
thought the prosecution had done all
it could to mako tho osso as blaok as
possible. He thought the case might
very well havo been settled hy the
magistrate at Chilliwack instead of
wasting tho timo of the court with
such a trifling case. He thought it
odd indeed that a murderous ussault
should be committed for such a ridiculous motive as that the prisoner want
ed to preserve tho partnership in the
farm. It waa not likely that auoh a
thing would take place on such a trifling matter.
It wu upon the unsupported evidence of Ah Sam alone that this
charge was made.
Ah Yuen had tried to get out of
owning his statements made to the

Rotting continues to be lively on the
result of tho Bush-McLean race to
como off on the Viotoria harbor course
on Friday afternoon. Yestorday $760
was recoived from the royal city to be
plaood on the mainland man, and the
greater part of it aoon found backers
at Campbell's corner, where it was of*
ferod. McLean at first wanted n race
with Richardson, the Victoria oarsman,
and was partially promised one, but it
foil through. Then he announced that
unless Victorians found another who
was willing to battle for it, he would
claim tho provincial championship,
Bush took up tho gauntlet, and the
coming raco is the result. The Vic*
toria man is in good condition at 170
Cuds, and will row in a 100-pound
t built by Jones. McLean is now
hero with his boat, weighing 15$ lbs,,
and made in Vancouvor. He himself
tips tho scale at 160 lbs. Both are
training hard on their course, and will
show good timo.— Colonist,
how much truth there is in a Chineso
case, and he would ask them to bring
in a case of not guilty.
Mr. McColl wished to read a certificate of character, but his lordship
would not permit it to be read, taking
for granted the previoui good character
of the prisoner.
His lordship summed up and asked the jury if tbey could hear without
a feeling of indignation that there was
no corroboration in the charge of the
prosecution. There certainly wu the
most undeniable corroboration; nothing could be more convincing than the
evidence they had just.listened to.
His lordihip explained to the jury
lhat maiming meant the depriving a
man of any member useful in war.
There had not heen any evidence to
show that the prisoner intended to
spoil the personal beauty of witness,
although he would have had hard work
io trying to do 10.   (Laughter).
The jury retired at 18 o'olock, and
returned with a verdict ot guilty, and
his lordship sentenced the prisoner to
one year.
Court resumed work at 1:25 and Mr.
McColl notified his lordihip thst noils
prosequi had been entered in the case
ot Regina vs. Martha Faber.
The case of Regina vs. Ching Bow,
for chicken stealing next came up.
Mr, Leamy, who wm counsel for prisoner, did'not appear, Mr. Hammersley
said that Mr. Leamy had d-olioed to
act in the case, and had gone out of
town. The jury wu duly sworn, and
Mr. Hammersley explained the charge
to tbem.
Wan Sung Zu was the first witneu
called. Hu lordship pisseil some
heavy strictures upon the eletkt- whom
magistrates employ. He aaid many of
the documents were a mass of indistinguishable hieroglyphics whie ■ might
mean anything or nothing. Ho had
seen children of nine yean old who
would make much better eh vl _ tl an
tbe men who filled that position at the
present time, Viotoria beat anything
he over saw for bad writing ami illiteracy but be would admit that th a P rt
Moody indictment easily carr _< off the
palm for stupid, meaningles' i_ibt.il-
ity. H1b lordship ssid a priz • < .igh* to
be offered for the stupidest cl«r-. Tlio
witness Wan Sung Zu jett ng
tired of the laborious wc k of
interpreting threw the court i to-
great merrimeut by stating hs c-vn
case in excellent English. He ad
fired n gun to scare the thief (pt mo- r)
away, and tho latter hid dropped ihe
chickens, which were in a b<ig, ■ ud
made a rapid exit from thu yarn. Ttie
bag was found next morning wl--re
prisoner had relinquished It. Tho p*
pearanco of witness as he reeled >ff
speeches in "pigeon English' 'id
Chinese, accompanied by the most t to-
fuse gesticulation, was ludicr-'U-in he
highest degtee. The witne s said it
was of no use arresting the 1 riso er
the night of the theft whon h< co Id
get him the noxt day.
The cfrkl*^n*~ wore fouud in tho
prisoner's nOTBe.
Allan Noon, a small boy, t.* ified to
having found the sack and stick, aad
gave his evidence in a straight,orw.-ird
manner in every detail. The prisoner
kept up a continuous broadside of
Chinese volubility and could Hcarcely
be quelled.
The prisoner in his statement informed the prosecution that they had
no case as they ought to have arras ed
him during tho night. Thii ne *• chapter in legal procedure was received
with smiles by tho lawyers, who alio
were much impressed thereby.
The prisoner uid he had been arrested
in Vancouver and taken bock to Port
Moody, tried boforo tho magistrate
thero and lined $20, or, in default, six
months' imprisonment. He paid the
$20 and supposed he wai free, but
found he had been sent up for trial.
His lordship sent the court intt spontaneous convulsions by reading, and
spelling as he read, that indictment
from Port Moody. There were 54
words and 19 mis-spelt. His lordthip
said the man who wrote it would havo
a poor show at a spelling bee.
Mr. McColl fully explained how it
was that prisoner was dealt with u he
was by the magistrate at Port Moody.
It was a mistake on that gentleman's
part in interpretintr the law. The first
proceedings were quite nugatory.
His lordship summed up and oharged
tho jury u to their verdict, his remarks
being very humorous and provoking
unlimited smiles. Jury retired at
2:30 and returned with a verdict of
guilty. Hia lordship said they wero
quite right. The prisoner had nothing
to say His lordship uid thoy were
the dearest chickens he ever bought,
and he would give him a month for
eaoh. His lordship uid Mr. Butchart
might be a very good magistrate not-
wit ..itanding his Chaucerian English;
the men who made the Magna Charts
could not write their own names, but
tbey knew very well what they were
about. Mr. Butchart ought to have a
good olerk to help him in his literary
work.

To iti) out-siil er it would appear to
be   tacitly    conceded    nmong  our
neighbors in tho big ropublic that
the tight as to which oity shall be

1892 is practically  botween   Now
York, tho commercial hub and largest metropolis in the United States,
and Chicago, the great hub of the
west, whioh now boasts   proudly of
being the second city  in tho union
and aspires to be sometime the first
Latest accounts aro to tho effect that
New York, which mado a commendable splurge nt the start and had
high hopes of carrying all before it
by force of numbers, wealth and tho
prestige accruing   to   the  largest
American city, has begun to lose its
grip, so to speak, and the metropolis
of Illinois and the west is just now on
top and jubilant.    Now York has
lost ground by internal strife about
selecting a suitable location within
the city or its environs for the sito
of the proposed great fair. Chicago
has had no such trouble, and the
western city has got ahead of its
rival by the exercise of greater foresight and shrewdness by sending an
authorized representative to study
the Paris exposition with a view to
utilizing the experience thus gained
ut the eleventh hour, has awakened
in the American enterprise.   Mr.
Jeffrey, late manager of tho Illinois
Central Railroad, has for some time
been on the ground with an able
corps of assistants working actively,
systematically and intelligently in
the interests of Chicago.   Now York,
to the necessity for some such action
and is making frantic efforts   to secure desirable information,   but, as
the great Paris exposition is now in
tho di iolution stage, it is a littlo too
lato for effective work in obtaining
pouters.   Chicago   is well  to the
fore, too, in guaranteeing funds and
in pushing it. claims with congressmen, it being stated  now  that the
"puiihing" committeo that, has tho
matter in hand 1ms enlisted in support o? its cause a   majority of tho
meuiburs of Congress.    If this bo a
taut, and if, as is   probable,   emigres-s will have tlio final word in the

all or which would not be the case
with Kew York ns tho site of the
fair.    We have in former   articles
show n that this province has some
interos.   in   Chicago   securing tlie
great; world's fair for 1892, and,  as
things work now, our side is go to
win.
Oun esteemed Nanaimo cotemporary, the Free Press, prints a
really good article occasionally, and
the following is suoh an able and
comprehensive setting forth of tlio
subject under discussion that we
make no apology for reproducing it
in these columns in full: The recent uufoituiiiito accidont to her
majesty's ship Amphion while convoying the Governor-General from
"Victoria to Voncouver affords the
Colonist an opportunity to draw attention to the supposed advantages
of Victoria and Esquimalt as the
terminal point of ocean navigation,
and at the .-nno timo create a number of fii'titiou-* dangers that besyt
the wuter highway from the straits
of Fuua to Vancouver and Nanaimo.
Our cotemporary claims that tlio
dangers {.) that beset that route
show clearly that o'-unn going vessels fchnuld not proceed beyond Victoria, No doubt tho wish is father
to tho thought, for in lhat ease then
all the shipping that comes for and
tukeH away our natural exports of
coal, luiitbnr and fish would have to
pay tribute to that .would-be toll-
gate on tilt* wovld'a highway—the
city of Victoria. While admitting
the right of tho Colonist to stand up
for its own loculity, wo do not admit that it lias the right to injure and
trntlnci' the other cities of the province in so duing. Our contemporary speaks without faots wlion it alludes to the dangers (?) that are said
to exist, on tho highway from tho
ocean to the exporting ports of Nanaimo, Departure Bay, Union, Vancouver and New Westminster. Let
us take the facts of the last ten
years. During that period there
have been moro wrecks in Esquimalt harbor and the approaches
thereto than there has been in the
highway from lince ■ Bocks to the
Gulf of Georgia. This may bean
unpleasant statement ior our capital contemporary to swallow, but it
is cold stubborn faots, nevertheless,
Without going into details as to the
merits of the route to the sea, in
this article we will confine ourselves
to the circumstances surrounding
the accident to tlie Amphion. The
Amphion leaves Hoyal Roads in ono
of tno densest fogs' experienced in
these waten, and, although tho com
mander and officers cannot, on account of their recent arrival in
these waters, have but a very limited knowlodgo of tho channel and
currents, the vessel steams away at
17 knots an hour but has "slowed
down" to 15?f knots un hour. The
reader will say a pretty good speed
to go in a dense fog, especially where
one is not thoroughly acquainted
with the route. Mark the sequel,
and we quote the report of the Colonist. The Amphion succeeded
very well in returning until the vessel came to the vicinity of Esquimalt
Jiarhor and there they had the greatest difficulty in correctly locating the
position of Esquimalt harbor. Is
that not sufficient evidence that
thero was us much difficulty if not
more in making Esquimalt harbor
than thero was in navigating the
water way of the Gulf of Georgia.
In the samo fog Pilot Urquhart experienced no difficulty in taking the
China Steamship Parthia to Vancouver. We contend that tlie navigation from Cape Flattery to the
Gulf of Goorgia presents no serious
difficulty to those acquainted with
tho way, as evidenced by the many
hundreds of thousands of tons of
shipping that have successfully loaded at tho coal centre of Nanaimo
and with lumber and fish on the opposite sido of tho gulf. Tho percentage of disaster on this water
routo, which the Colouist makes
such a bold attempt to decry, is less
than it is on the open ocean between
Vancouver Island and California.
That being the case, the danger of
the route becomes tho puro imagination of the fortile brain of our cotemporary, when it takes this mode of
building up its own "illahie" at the
expense of the other portions of the
province. But it was always thus
with the capital, for it appears bred
in the bone and born of the flesh.
Tho great strides made by the
cities on the gulf hus boen a source
of anxiety to tho capital, for it finds
that as the other cities advance,
they become more self reliant and
do not draw all their supplies from
the capital, but direct from the
manufacturers. If the route between Nanaimo and the sea was
even half as dangerous to shipping
as the Colonist endeavors to make
believe, it would be a serious blow
on the coal, lumber and fishing industries, for vessels would require a
much higher freight than at present.
By the bye, perhaps our contemporary is not aware that according
to distance, freights are just as low
to Vancouver and Nanaimo as they
are to tho so called safe harbor of
Esquimalt, we will not say Victoria,
for that can hardly bo entitled to bo
classed among the hfivbdrs of the
world. Build up your town, neighbor, but in doing so do not falsely
traduce your rapidly growing rivals,
by a bold but transparent attempt
to place rocks, shoals and tortuous
chiuuiols whero thero is comparatively clear and unbroken water. In a
few days we may be able ot
givo an approximate estimate of the
number und tonnage of the oceun
going vossels that have safely used
this route for the past decade

"The true manner of judging •*_
tlie worth of amusements is to try
thom by their effects on the nerves
and spirits the day after. True
amusement, ought to be, us the word
indicates, recrention—something thnt
refreshes, turns us out anew, rests
the mind and body by ohango, and
gives cheerfuln•-%. and alacrity to
our return to duty."
"Useless and hurtful memories
can be crowded out by fiilling the
mind with better tilings. Much of
such recollections are mero idle reveries that can be swept away by
the fresh breeze of enthusiasm, ao
tivity and duty. Happy memories,
kindly feelings,.noble ideas, goner
ous plans, may so fill Ihe heart and
employ the mind that there will be
neither room nor place for mournful
and futile reminiscences."
The following is gravely asserted
to be an extract from a real composition written by a small schoolboy
in New Jersey. The subject given
by the teaoher was tho extensive
one of "man." Hero's what tho
snmll boy wrote : "Man is a wonderful animal. He has eyes, ears,
mouth. His ears are mostly for
catching cold in and having the oar-
ache. The nose is to get sniffles
ith. A man's body is split half
way up, and lie walks on thn split
ends."
In Surry county, North Carol inn,
there is a remarkable natural curiosity in the shape of a mountain resembling tho famous sphinx of Egypt
in all its details. It lies east of the
Bluo Ridge mountains on tlie Piedmont plains, like a gigantic Hon, its
body at right angles to the ridge and
with head reared aloft as if in the
aot of rising. The head is of solid
rock, several hundred feet in height.
Tho shoulders and breast are finely
proportioned, and at tho distance of
n few miles it looks like a thing of
life and intelligence. It rises about
1,500 feet above the plain and cun
be scon for a distance of fifty miles.
The Pioneer Press of St. Paul and
Minneapolis published a mammoth
edition of forty pages'.from its new
office in St. Paul the othor day. This
new office is claimed to be the finest
and most complete newspaper building in the world. It is certainly
massive and elegant. In making a
secure foundation 600 piles were
driven deep into tho ground, nnd
theso were covered by a bod of concrete from six to ten feet thick. On
this was erected a building of brick,
stone and iron, absolutely fire-proof,
thirteen stories in height. All of
the appliances are in keeping with
tho grandeur of the structure. And
the grand journal of the Northwest
is worthy of its quarters.

Election  Address.
To the Electors of New Westminster City:
GENTLEMENi-As you are aware; I
have, in reply to a "ery inlUien.hillysigned requisition,comofor.vard'1'™ a annul*
dute for the represent nil mi of tliis diy In
the Legislature of the Province, and now
beg most respectfully to solicit tlie voto
and Inllueiice of every elector.
As New Westminster la tlio nnturnl
centre nnd distil billing point of the dls-
lfIot,lt will lio tbo duty of yoty representative to ii-sfst in every wny within tils
power ttie efforts of tho district members
I ti seeuru Hie construction of tlie mnny
pulillc.works,especiallyroiulsnnd bridges,
whleli the great and growing Importance
of tho dlstrlot makes necessary. In this
connection I would specialty mention the
roads needed to connect us with the North
Arm uml Maple Uldge settlements, nnd us
I intend heartily to support nnd hopo to
work cordlnlly with the Government, I
trust thn I, If elected, I shall be nblo to
render important services In Ibis direction.
Within our own consliluoncy several
important matters In ihe same llne will
demand tho special nttentlon of your ro-
prflsontatlvo. A court house of the size
und stylo suitable to the dimensions
which our city will certainly attain ln tho
near future must he mected during tho
coming year, u_ifl it will, lu my opinion,
lie lhe duly of the Government to assist
materially bysubsldy In tho construction
of llin free trnflla brldi*p whf h must shortly connect ns with tho southern bunk of
the Fraser, aH that bridge Is certainly a
work of provincial and not merely of
loon I Importance,
But the moat Important question Is one
of n dilliTf-ni. nature, and one, happily, In
tho trentmentof which your repre.onta-
tlve will lie largely favored by oiroutn-
stnnc.-i—1 allude tn tho roilstrlbutton of
seats. The timo lins fully come whon
that, question should he dealt with In a
brood and general way, ln any such rearrangement, representation by population must be made tho basis of re-aajust-
inent, It will bo tho duty of your represent utivo to see thnt thia eity Is given lta
full rights In thlsmatter,audas tbcscttle-
trionfc of this question will affect our Interests for years to come, I pledgo myself.
If oleoted, to spare no effort lo secure full
Justice to both city and distriot lu this
respect.
Should a division of the British Columbia Agricultural Association take place,
tt will be theduty of your representative to
seo that there Is no reduction ln the grnnt
mndo to tho association in aid of tlio Ex.-
hll.it on lu this eity; indeed, looking to
thegrowlngimporiivncoof the oxhiblt Ions,
tho Government should give favorable
consideration to the question of Increasing tliat grant.
The Government should. In my opinion,
deed to tho city all public lands with*
in its limits not actually required for tho
uso of tlio Government.
As the representative of u growing and
progressive eity, lt would tm my endeavor
to wiil-oh every opportunity of attrooting
to New Westminster new industries anil
new means for Miedevolopment of wealth;
nnd loobtnln for such any necessary assistance froth iho Government.
As this Is the closing session of tho
present parliament,! need not detail iny
views ns to generul legislation; but thore
I-one point which demands tmmedlnlo
attention. An act should bo passed conferring upon every eltlxon the right to
bring suit against the Government. As the
law now stands theeoiisent of lhe Government must be obtained before nny suoh
action nan bo brought and this confers
upon tho Government power Hint they
should not possess.
With this brief expression of my views,
and again soliciting your support, I am
gentlemen,
Your obedient servant,
GORDON E. COBBCDLD.

According to a Chioagu Importer Carpets

People for Oriental Bugs—Foot!
for Houie wives.
"It 13 only a question of time," said one
of C'Uicago'B moflt extensiveImporters to a
Tim*!, reporter, "whon carpets will be dls-
car icd by all people of means and tholr
place takon by rug_. Bugs combine tbe
exc- ieocies of elegance and durability to so
um _U greater an extent than carpets," he
continued, "tbat they recommend them-

Boiuo and doMrable appointments, A good
rug not only lasts for generations and is always far more artistic and effective for the
floor, hut it can at any time ho gathered up,
carried out of doors, and shaken. A carpet,
however fine, wears but a few yeara at
most. Whon it ts once stretched ou tho
floor it must lay there until tho recurrence
of each dread house-cleaning epoch.
"Hugs in tho greatest demand now are,
of course, the oriental, made either in
Turkey or Russia. Thoy are all hand-
woven. The occupation of rug-making, an
important Industry in these countries, la
foil.)wed by both men and women. Certain
patterns and designs have been handed
down ln families from parent to child from
a timo hack of reckoning. The durability
of tho rug is due in great measure tothe
dyeing of the material from which itls
manufactured. No destroying chemicals
aro used in tho preparation of the dyes, the
coloring substances being all vegetable,
To uso aniline dyes is, in fact, a capital
offense, and a man or woman is executed
for this crlmo with as little compunction as
if guilty of atrocious murder.

an expert can detect the difference; it is almost indestructible, and wear gives It a

plnco in the market.' Tbe Delhi is a high-
prised rug, but it is now very scarce,
"Thore are excellent rugs ol American
manufacture, made in Imitation of the
Oriental, but they do not possess tho wearing qualities of tho latter, whioh are dyed
with vegetable coloring and hand-woven.
Good rugs range In price from 17.60 to
{1,500. Tbey are used not only for the floor,
but nlso for divan and table covers and for
hangings. Very fine and rate specimens

"Tho silk 'Afghan' is apartloularly handsomo rug. It Is not made of silk, hut of the

How the Postmaster of Magdeburg Do*

Thecoi-rcspondentbf a Vienna daily hi"
round a new story concerning the first lim
*_ero_ of now Germany. On his way U
Carlsbad ono summer afternoon Emperor
William, then only King of Prussia, decU ■ ■
not to allow tho citizens to receive Wm pub
■icly. Ho left the train at a small tow:
noar tho springs, took a carriage, ami \vn>
driven to his hotel almost unnoticed by tin
crowds which had gathered to soo him rid'
under arches, receive maidens in white, auti
givo tho customary kiss to the prettiest giri
among thom.
Tho next morning the nows gob abroi**'
that tlie King of Prussia had como. Bhe r
ly aftor daybreak hundreds of pcrsom
stood boforo tho hotel and along tho proa
enado which led to his favorito Bpring. AI
eight o'clock an eroct man ot military boaiv
injf stopped out of tho hotel. Uo wm-
ordinary black clothes and a eillt hat, J'
had whito side whiskers, a mustache, and i
stride which betrayed, according to th
Ideas of the crowd, theprosonco of Holtim
zollorn blood. "His Majosty in civile!'
shouted a patriotic Prussian, ami tv-
crowd, convinced that the wlilto-whlbkon ii
mau In black clothes was tho King, still Intent upon avoiding public demon fttra tion ™,
shouted:   "Long livo tho King!"
The man with Kiug William wWskors
raised his hand deprocatlngly, and opened
Ws mouth, hut if Uo Bald any thing it wan
lost in tho hurrahing of loyal German subjects, He made his way, hosiliUim. mid
blushing, down the lane of shouting men
and women to tho King's favorito spring.
A beautiful young woman sprang fonv.n-d
filled a glus- with spring water, and with n
bow reached ic to him. He mado a very fin**
military salute, took theglassand drank thi
water.
That was all Tho crowd jvas so sjirpi'Ist.-'
that It became almost quiet. Every ois.
wondered why tlio Kiug withheld tlio royal
kiss for which ho was ovon tlion famous.
Something was wrong, ovory ono plainly
saw, and tho enthusiasm began to abate.
As tho man with the whito whiskers turned
to go back to his hotel a young fellow, evidently his friend, pushed up to him through
tbocrowd and said: "How aro you this morning, Herr Postmaster?" Tho crowd was
still in a minuto. Tho supposed King explained Btammcringly that ho was uo King
at all, but tho postmaster of Magdeburg.
The crowd melted away and tho postmastor
and his young friend hurried off to the
hotel.
At noon tho real King of Prussia wntkod
down the promenade to the spring. Few
porsons noticed him. At the spring a lino'

A MODEST DRUMMER	
— •*&**
Th« Annoying Predicament In Whl.li Be
Was Placed by a Sneak-Thief.
Will Hansard, a traveling salesman of
Louisville, was once upon a time pursuing
bla calling ln Bell and Harlan counties,
Ky. These two counties are the most
mountainous and thinly Inhabited in tbe
State. Just before starting baok to Louisville ho passed the night at a farm-house in
Harlan. When be went to bod he bung his
trousers on a chair near the window, next
morning the trousers were gono and no ono
knew where. Borne one passing in the
night hod reached ln at the window and
taken them, for his host was above suspicion.
Mr. Hansard called loudly for tiie farmer,
expecting to borrow a pair of trousers from
him. His wifo came to the door and said
that her husband had gone hunting an hour
before, and, aa he had only one pair of
trousers, he had vory naturally worn them.
Horo was a dilemma, but his hostess, who
was a woman of expedients, solved it. She
oame to the door with one of her Mother
Hubbards and suggested that the drummer
put lt on. He consented. Bhe tossed tho
garment to him end olosed tho door. He
got into the Mother Hubbard, went out to
the stable, hitched up his team, and climbed
into his buggy. Here he took tho garment
off and handed it back to the lady, who was
full of sympathy for him. The buggy concealed bis lower extremities, and ho
wrapped his linen duster around them to
keep thom warm.
Mr. Hansard drove quickly to tho nearest store, about four miles away, expecting
to buy a pair of trousers there, for all the
country stores kept ready-made olothing,
Whon he got there he found numeroui
ladlos who had congregated to soo the
opening of some new goods. He could not
loavo the buggy, but he yelled for the
proprietor to oome out, and to him ho mado
known bla predicament. The morohuut
brought to bim Ave or six pairs of trousers.
Ho drovo down Into a noighboring hollow,
tried thom on, found a pair to fit him, and
thus bis tribulations were ended.

ban-ma eater. The other night ho ato

of tho stores and started to bring tho number of bananas up to fifty on a wager. Ho

at noon, says the New York Sun, whon the
place was deserted by all save the cashier,
who hud a far-away look in his eyes as hit*
pale face appeared at the wicket. Draw-in-
a revolver from hia hip pocket tho mar
with the sombrero and buckskin shirt and
long hair rested the barrel on tbe edge ol
tho countor and said:
"I am Buckskin Joo,"
"ITcsl"
"Shell out!"
The cashier reached around for a two-
dollar bill and laid it beforo him.
"Hand out tlio boodle or I'll blow daylight
through you I" wns tho stern command.
"There It Ib," was tho calm reply.
"Don't monkoy with mo I Hand ovor the
funds I"
"There Is ovory dollar wo havo ln tlie
bank. Come around hero and seo for yourself."
"But-but*-"
"Easy enough explained, The preslden-
and cashier sloped in company last nigh
and this is the bill they overlooked. I'm
tlio teller, and I'm standing hero in hopes t ■■
tako in onough deposits to pay my faro t<
Chicago."
"And the shanty is busted I"
"As you see. Sorry for you, old boy, bu i
you ought to have dropped In yesterday
Pleaso do mo the favor to keep still as you
go out. I've been lynched twico In tbia
State and I don't ndiuiro the sensation,"
. SnuOlest Town In the Country.
Baltimore, Vt., Ib said to bo tho smallest
town In the United States. It is perched on
tha sido of Hawks' Nost, and yoars ago was
part of Cavendish, on tbo othor side of tho
mountain; but voters had to go fifteen milos
to cast their ballots, so a petition was circulated and tho town of Baltlmoro was sot
■itt. In 1880 tho population was sovonty-six,
.uid of theso about a dozon wore voters- not
inough to fill tho town offices, for thore are
: wonty offloes to fill.

supporters of both candidates uro getting down to organized work. AU the
carriages in Westminster and Vancouver have been engaged to carry the
free and independent voters to the
polls. Nightly meetings aro held nt
which important question, are discussed, orders issued and reports received.
Both oidc3 are fairly well organized,

as the Atlantic Express waa moving
pant tho foot of Mary street, Mr, L. P.
Eckstein canto down to Front street
in a Aon cait, intending to cross to
Surrey to hold u court of revision of
tho Dominion voters' list. The horso,
a fiery little animal, became frightened
at the train and acted in a very dis
agreeable manner, attempting to back
on to tho track in front of the locomotivo. Seeing that prompt measures
woro necessary, Mr. Eckstein leaped
from tho vehicle and grasped tho horso
by the head, and with the assistance
of a couplo of by-BtanderB managed to
hold the animal in ono position till the
train sped by. No damage was done,
but tho accident camo within a hairs-
breadth of being very serious.

From Victoria.
Mr. J, G. Jnquea returned from
Victoria to-day, having spent a few
dsys visiting the mossy capital and its
surroundings, He visited the dry
docks at Esquimalt and declares that
ono cannot even imagine the damage
dono to tho Amphion, Tho damage
to her hull is nbout 80 foet in length,
at places only a large dont in tho metal
and again largo holes big enough to
stick a man's bond through. A number uf the ship's ribs and over 30 of the
plates will have to bs replaced. Tho
work of repair ia progressing vory
rapidly. Speaking of streets, Mr.
.Jaques-says there is nu comparison between tho streets of tho royal and capital cities, Westminster largely discounting tliu sad city by the strait,
both in respect to cleanliness and condition.
SIlHpInccd Confidence.
Tho Victoria Times is responsible for
the following: A young gentleman of
this city has lately been very attentive
to one of the gentler sex who resides
here, and ns a token of his regard for
her has at different times purchased
presents of value for her. A dny or
two ago ho drew considerable money
from the bank, and uot -using it the
day it wns drawn, showed his extreme
confidence in his true lovo by placing
tho whole amount in her keeping. To
his dismay ho learned onrly this morning that sho had left on tlie Sotind boat
for the other shore. Advice wan asked
of a gentleman as to tho best way tu
atop the damsel in her flight; but hb it
would be iui] o.-.ihlo to swear to the
cash, nnd as sho gave.no receipt for it,
the chance, of recovering it nre extremely douutful.

very amusing character. A new feature is the-ealendar of "Remarkable
Events" which runs through the year,
and which, alone, ia worth moro thnn

certainly entertaining and helpful to bo
told the day nnd year when pancakes
woro invented, when tho half-holiday
agitation was started, or washing day
instituted, or stolen sermons first used,
or Frank Smith was ruined by the
Btreet railwny (Jan. 15, 2000), or mother-in-law joke invented, or Chicago

W.C. T.If. Convention.
The couvention began its first session
in the Baptist church yesterday morning at 9:30 o'olock. Tlio smnll ness of
members was largely compensated for
by tho earno.tiiess of those who wore
present and tho cosy room iu which
the convention met. Tho devotional
exercises, from 9:30 to 10 a.m., wero
conducted by Mrs. Burkhuldor, of
Victoria Tho convention wns then
formally opened by the singing of ttio
temperance doxology nnd repenting
the Lord's prayer iu unison.
Tlio first business wns the appointment of various committees, Mrs.
Moore, of Victoria, nnd Mrs. Milligau,
of this city, were appointed n committeo on courteBy, to welcome visitors
and introduce them to the convention.
Thu president road a paper on parliamentary usage, after whicli thu convention adjournod for lunch.
In the afternoon report a of superintendents of departments wore called
for. Tho first wub from Mrs. Hull, of
Victoria, on tho subject of scriptural
instruction in public schools., This
paper called forth conaiderablo discussion, and the ladies wero urged to
use their strongest influence In the
election of proper trustees and toacherd.
Tho next report was on the work on
railroad employees, given verbally by
Mrs. O. L. Street, and discussed. A
very interesting report on the department of franchise was read by Mrs.
Gordon Grant, of Viotoria, stating
among other facta that the ladiea of
British Columbia hnve used largely the
meagre privileges allowed them, and
almoit invariably their votes have been
cast oh the side of righteousness. Mrs.
D. Robson reported on jail work;
Mrs. Tate on Indian work; hospital
work waa reported on by Mrs, Burkhuldor for Victoria, and Mra. Scouler
and Mrs. Mujor for Westminster. Tho
report of Mrs. Gordon Grant, of Victoria, on refuge homo work, was read
and discussed, the ladies feeling at tlm
close of the discussion more like helping this important work than ever he-
fore. The convention then adjourned
till 0:30 a.m. Thursday.
In tho evening a most successful
social wai held at the Baptist churoh,
■nd which wai largely attended,
The reception hold by his lordship
tho bishop and Mrs. Sillitoe, at tho
opera house last night, gathered together more church people than have
ever before assembled for social intercourse in Westminster. The occasion
being tho tenth anniversary of the
bishop's consecration, and the establishment of thia diocese, the event
could not hnvo bee otherwise than successful, for tho parishioners of Holy
Trinity delight to honor thoir rector
nnd bishop, who is ns iudefutiguble us
he is enthusiastic in church affairs,
who not only points tho wny but seta
tho example, uud wh- is always first
nnd foremost in proposing and carrying out any matters whicli will prove
of-beqefit aud credit to his charge;
and in ull the works in connection with
li is parish und diocese tho bishop i.
most ably and earnestly ns.i.ted hy
Mrs. Sillitoe.
The church workers of tho parish,
under the able direction of thu Kev.
H. Irwin, hud transformed the opera
house into a very handsomeiy docorat*
od reception room. On the left hand
sido, near the stage, a large table
groaned undor its weight of tempting
edibles, whieh wero served out by the
young ladiea and gentlemen during the
evening. The seats were arranged in.
a bewildering manner, but in such a
way its to force people to bo sooiablo
whether thoy intended to bu so or not.
But tho gathering waa, without exception the must cogenial and free from
rdstraint that hau occurred in n, long
time. Thero was general intermingling of the people without distinction
of persons, nud, on the whole, it may
be said thut the object of the gathering, social and pleasant intorcourae,
was successfully attained.
At 8 o'clock tho reception commonced and lasted moro than onu hour.
Tho bishop aud Mrs-.- Sillitoe stood a
fow paces to the Jeft of the main entrance and the church wardens introduced the parishioners and other visitors ns they entered tho hull. More
than 300 introductions took place during tho evening, and to evory person
introduced tho bishop Imd a kind word
to say. After tho reception u short
programme of songs, music, etc., was
rendered, which was greatly enjoyed.
Bishop Sillitoe gavo a very interesting
and instructive address on church
work, what had been dono in the past
and what ho proposed ahould be accomplished iu tho future. Hu pointed
with pardonable pride lo the wido extension uf work tliat has taken place
ninco ho became bishop of the diocese
ton yearB ago. Tho work had greatly
increased, tho field of labor had been
enlarged, tho staff of clergymen and
lay workers had more thun qujirdrupl-
id, but tho income to auppoii" mid meet
the great additional expouses had not
kept pace with tho work. His lordship concluded by saying it would bo a
lasting nud delicate token of rwspoct to
the memory of tho late lam. tiled Robt.
Dickinson if tho hell tower, wliich for
yenrs the deceased had labored to
build, wns immediately taken in band
by tho congrogatiou nud raised to hi.*
memoty. After a honrty vote of thanks
to Rev. II. Irwin- and the ladiea, the
national anthem was sung and the
gathering dispersed, henrtily.gratified
with the plensuro tho evening had afforded.
The committeo of management is indebted to Messrs Ogle Campbell & Co.,
and Messrs Wintemute Bros, for the
decorations used in ornamenting the
Opura House, and without which great
trouble would havo boen experienced
ln beautifying tho building to the extent accomplished.

the city to-day.

morrow aftornoon for Kamloops and
will bo absent from tho city till Wednesday next.

the gentlemen woro engaged every day
on somo business, tho nature of which
could nut bo ascertained. Mr. Wallace, who appeared to he spokesman of
tho party, talked uf uuthiiig but lho

Mr. Walter Mnberly, C. E., who bus
takon a lively interest in tho railway
project since its inception, but with
whut object Mr. Walter dt&cussud the
giibjcct with him is yet a necret. Mr.
Wallace informed a Free Press roporter
that the district along tho route ia
mapped out for tho railway is without
doubt the richest mineral and agricultural section of tho wholo continent,
and ho stated positively that tho line
would bo constructed before the year
1900. Mr. Wallace said that there
woro fow men who had any conception
whatever of the richness of the mineral
belt that extends from the north weat
corner of British Columbia to tho
Kootenay district, nor of tho agricultural capabilities of tho same strip of
country.—Winnipeg Free Press,
