The following letter appeared in yes*
terday's Colonist:
To The Editor:—The following recently appeared in the Liverpool correspondence of the London Grocer, and
should at once receive the most emphatic
contradiction.
"The hasty pack of Fraser river sal*
mon, which was caused by the sudden
and unprecedented large catch, led to
considerable carelessness, and there will
be a large proportion of blown tins. This
will prove favorable to tho ule of Columbia river fish, which has been carefully packed, and Ib of fine quality."
It ii not difficult to track tho source of
this inspired bit of information, when
American "bulls" show so much anxiety
to push off their Alaska pack, which ia
said to consist of all sorts and conditions
of fish, chiefly of the most inferio. character,
To uy that the catch on the Fraser
river was suddon is entirely incorrect.
The fact Is the run set In stcadilv, and
kept up beyond tho ordinary timo looked
for, which enabled the canners (who
were never in a better position to take
advantago of it) to pack fish of uniformly
fresh and primo quality, and to discard
anything lacking that standard necessary
for prime packing. As the proof of the
pudding is generally to be found in the
eating. »it will be found with the outturn of the Fraser river salmon when it
shall havo had the opportunity of reaching
tho English markets. Our .cousins across
the straits are not aa a rule guilty of ory*
ing "stinking fish" when their own products are tho subject of it, and in this
instance "soar grapes" wonld appear to
be the more appropriate substitute.

FEOM THE SOUND.
ObiervatUus of a Weatulart-r Alder-
sua la tke teud Cities.
Alderman Thomas Cunningham returned Wednesday from Seattle and
Tacoma, where he spent a few dayi
seeing the sights nnd picking up information on different heads which he
hopes will be of benefit to his constitu-
ents, the ratepayers of Westminsters.
To a representative of The Columbian,
Mr. Cunningham gave a short resume
of what he had seen and heard. The
ulmon paoking establishments are still
packing fish, but in what quantities
could not be learned. Seattle ia full
of sickneu at present, and it is iald
there are no less than 200 cases cf
typhoid at preient within the eity.
Bad water ii the cause. The present
supply comes from Lake Washington,
which drains somo muskeg country,
and therefore muit be impure. The
city, however, is alive to tho neccisity
of a pure water supply, and hu engineers prospecting the coui.tty in all
directions. Book Lake _nd Green
River offer the most available supply,
but they are 30 or 40 miles distant
from Seattle
Tho streets of Seattle ar j in a terrible condition, both from mud and
ruts, and Mr. Cunningham noticed in
one instance tbat an eight-horse team
wns required to haul a load of -tone.
Some of the Btreets are almost im pas-
sab ie. Between the streets of Seattle
and Westminster, Mr. Cunningham
uys there is no comparison, for the
Royal Oity is better furnished in thii
way than any oity on the Sound. The
electric railways of Seattle have proved
a great success, and are much appreciated and used by the people. The
ferry service to West Seattle is excel-
lent, and has had the effect of rapidly
building up this thriving suburb.
Many complaints are heard of the ragged and dirty appearance of the wator
front, and with just cause, for all the
filth and garbage of the eity is dumped
into the bay directly iu frout of ihe
city.
Many fine buildings are being erected iti Seaitlu, aome six, seven aod even
eight stories in height, and ival c-tate
ia away up in the clouds. A block on
Fourth street, 120 feet squat , sold on
Monday for 836,000, and for a bloek
on the corner of Main and Comtutieinl
streets. 108x110 feet, $160,000 was offered nnd refused. Mr. Ou>n ngham
says the present price of reai e- -ate in
Westminster is low, when om-.pored
with Seattle figures, and Iv. pi edicts
that it will riso in value in to near
future. The prices on the Sound are
bound to affect British Colon bu prices
to a large extent. There is a large
immigration to the Sound a' prcs'-ot,
and to Mr. Cunningham it e> ems that
the C. P. R and C. P. N. Co. aro
making it their mission to populate
WashingteiPand Oregon.
Aid. Cunningham spent a day in
Tacoma, where he went for the express
purpose of inspecting the Byst.ni of
street making, and be was suuuefsful
in gleaning much valuable information
which will doubtless prove of benefit
to Westminster. He was cordially re*
ceivtd by Hit* city officials, iaod was
furnished with maps nnd plans * f street
construction. As in Seattle the streets
are iu veiy bad condition, and the
board of works has abandoned earth
filling and will plank the streets with
four inch lumber. Heavily timbered
land 30 and 40 miles distant from
Seattle and Tacoma is held at 850 per
acre, and is eagerly purchased at that
price.

A mtAxon of basilicas that Wost-
minstor lias hardly begun to tako a
Imml in is tlto wholesale trade.   A
wholesale house, it is true, litis lately
boen established in our midst, and a
number  of our retnil   merchants
curry on a small wholesale department  in   addition to their regulnr
businesa, besides which  there aro
a   number   of    houses    doing  a
wholesale -and    commission   business    in    milling    aud    agricultural machinery, vehicle-, ttc, and
produco; but tho wholesale trade is
capable of great development with
this city as tho base of operations.
Westminster plainly possesses advantages for tho successful prosecution of this branch of business which
no other city in tho province can
boast.   It is central, easy and cheap
of access, and overy day becoming
more so.   Enjoying the proud distinction of being, as yet, tho only
city situated  on that noblo artery
. of commerce, tho Fruser River, and
only 16 miles from the seaboard by
an incomparable waterway navigable for the largest vessels, being the
natural centre of the fishing, lum*
bering and agricultural industries of
the mainland, having direct connection with  the grout national highway of the Dominion, of which it is
the frosh wnter terminus, and shortly to be the British Oolumbia terminus of the American transconti-
nonial   and   Pacific coast railway
systems, Westminster i3 destined to
bo  the   most important wholesale
centre in the province.   Attention
is sure to bo attracted to this splendid field very soon, nnd wholesaling,
instead of   being  a  comparatively
unimportant item in tho aggregate
of o tr business, will in a few years
excel all other departments in extern and importance.    A good way
to la ig about this desired end, beside* making known the advantages
pos'esscd by the city for such trade,
is for )ur business men to encourago
by th-ir patronage those who havo
aire uly established  wholesale busi-
nes; et in our midst.   There is nothing il e local patriotism and mutual
reciprocity in business to build up a
city    When people once learn that
by helping their neighbor they are
holiing themselves, the golden rule
will bo worn until it shines again,
nnd prosperity nnd progress will be
thn universal order.
soon reach such oKtonaive proportions Manitoba hu beon looked
upon probably too largely as n grain
country, and the great advantages
which the country offers in other
directions havo been lost sight of.
This season train load after train
load of Manitoba cattle havo gone
forward for shipment eastward to
Montreal and in aome instances for
export to Liverpool. Tho pleasing
revelation has como upon us suddenly thnt Manitoba is to be a large
exporter of cattlo us well as grain.
To the advocates cf mixed fanning
this revelation will be especially
pleasing, as indicating that their
views have been generally adopted
by the agricultural population of
the country. Again, this revelation,
coming as it has after a harvest
which has beeu a great disappointment to grain growers, is doubly
welcome, as showing that the country has something substantial to fall
back upon in case of an unfavorable
crop year, which is bound to come
occasionally even in tho most favored latitudes. Tho export movement of cattle this year will materially assist in making up for the
light returns from crops which has
been the unfortunate experience this
year. While Manitoba has been
looked upon more as a grain country,
our great territory of Alberta and a
portion of Assiniboia haa been considered a stock country par excellence. This year, however, Manitoba bids fair to distanco tho territories in the export of cattle, Tho
O.P.R. peoplo here say that exports
of cattlo from Manitoba will this
year at least exceed shipments of
westorn ranch cattle, In onn particular, however, the territories havo
tho advantage, and this is in point
of quality. Our Winnipeg cotemporary goes on to impress upon the
farmers of Manitoba the advantages
and necessity of raising only the
best class of stock, to succeed in tho
business and compote in the markets
of the world—a truth, we are glad
to say, which hardly needs to be
pressed home upon our British Columbia farmers and stock-raisers,
who show an intelligent appreciation
of the fact, coupled with tbo greatest
amount of enterprise in putting their
knowledge into practice.
TriE Winnipeg Commercial in a
lato number calls attention, in two
different articles, to the fact that
Manitoba is not meroly a farming,
or grain, country, but has an important fishing industry, and is just
beginning to bdow what shu can do
in the way of stock raising. For
the information of those who are
ignorant of the fact, tho Commercial
states briefly that Manitoba has
sftveral large lakes, which abound in
lish, viz., Lakes Winnipeg, Manitoba. Winnipogooais, Lako of tho
Woods, and a number of smaller
lakes. Of Into years quite an extensive fishing industry has sprung
up, principally on Luke Winnipeg,
and a oonsidemblo quantity of fish
is annually exported from tho country to southern and eastern points.
Tho annual catoh of whitefish in
Lako Winnipeg at present is estimated at between 1,000 and 1,500
tons. The fish go mostly to the
United States, and are bought up
at aliout six cents per pound. The
industry nlso affords the Indians an
opportunity of earning good wages
during the fishing season. Au agi
tition i3 goin-,' on at present in
Manuobii, to which Governor
Schultz has lent his countonanco
and aid, having for its object tho restriction or praoiical prohibition of
the fishing operations alluded toon
tlio Manitoba lakes, on the ground
that tbe waters will soon ho deploted
of fish, with thia result, among
others, that the Indians in the
vicinity of the lakes will then be
deprived of their source of food supply, nnd thus become a burden upon
tho government. Tho Commercial
states, however, that the fears as to
tho di.pletttm of tin- Manitoba lakes
do not nppwir, ou investigation, to
be wt-li founded, for, instead of the
fiih doereiisiiig, the whitefish in
Liko Witniipei* this season have
boen inure .Jamd int than usual, and
the fishermen have had no trouble
in taking all the (ish they could
handle. Our cotemporary makes a
vory sensible suggestion, undor the
circumstances, to tho effect that
those who appear to be so anxious
lest Lake Winnipeg should be depleted of fish, would do well to endeavor to induce the government to
establish a fish hatchery for the
lake, instead of advising that tho
fishermen bo compelled to abandon
their industry.
Tiie Comnerciah own words will
give the best possible idea of the
important place which, stoek raising
is just beginning to take among the
industries of the prairie provinco ■
The largo shipment eastward of
cattlo from Manitoba this soason is
a surprise to many of our people.

as to the resources and development

SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Pasteur asserts that rabies is
never spontaneous, but always owes
its origin to microbes from a rabid
animal.
Zinc ox Buildings.—The builders of tho City Market Halls in
Berlin fouud that some sheet zinc
work resting upon brick walls soon
becomo deeply pitted in a number
of places, especially at points of
contact with tbe bricks, Chemical
examination has shown that the
bricks contained more than ono per
cent, of solublo salts, capable, aided
by moisture, of producing tho destructive effects noticed. It is probable that some bricks are free from
the corrosive salts, but a wiso precaution would be to avoids immediate contact of sheet zinc and brickwork by interposing some material
—like building felt—not likely to
bo attacked.
Insect Speed.—The rapidity with
which insects travel is quite astonishing, often exceeding the speed of
the swiftest race-horse, The common house-fly is computed to mako
600 strokes per second in ordinary
flight, advancing 25 foot, but this,
rate may be incroasaed six or seven
times ns much. Lcuuieuholk tells
of a dragon fly which, in a menagerie
about 100 feet long, succeeded in
avoiding a swallow • and in u recent
curious race, at a Westphalia!, town,
between a dozen bees and a dozen
pigeons, the first bee finished tho
distance of threo miles nearly a
quarter of a minute in advance of
the first pigeon, Thn male of the
silkworm moth is said to travel
more than 100 miles in a single
day.
Parasites of tub Blood.—Some
years ago a Russian observer discovered in the blood of birds living organisms strongly resembling those
existing iu tbe blood of persons attacked by malarial fever. It has
since been found that these minute
parasites are much more common
than was at first suspected. Cold
blooded animals are more especially
liable lo have them, and the oar*
nivora more so than other warm
blooded animals; but it is only rarely that they seem to cause incon-
vienco, and in only four or five out
of 300 birds examined did death result in consequence of lesions produced by tho parasites. Iii those
cases tho symptons wero identical
with thoso observed in victims of
malarial fover.
The Elixir,—The discovery announced by Prof. Brown-Sequnrd
last June was not the "elixir of.if.,"
but simply that certain glandular
seer actions act as a stimulant-of the
nervous centres, and would probably
be found a remedy of value. According to Dr. G. Archie Stock well,
tho researches into this specific
action have been contiuued by an
American chemist, Mr. II. F, Mier,
with the result of isolating an alkaloid which is identified as spermine,
announced by Schreiner in 1878 The
phosphate of spermine exists in all
normal gray nerve matter of the
brain and spinal cord* in oysters,
eggs, mussels, lampreys, fish muscle,
ova and milt; and in excessive and
abnormal secretions of mucous membranes. It seems to be drawn from
the brain in consumption and other
wasting diseases resulting in mental
and physical decline in a degree altogether disproportionate to the
failure of nutrition. The effect of
subcutaneous injections of the alkaloid is a remarkable temporary
stimulation, which may often aid in
healing disease, but whioh cannot
be freely repeated without risk of
harmful reaction.

"and will hardly accord with our furniture." .*
"It wouldn't look at oil well with that

" Walnut is altogether out of style, especially for dining-rooms," sherepllod, with a
disdainful franco at tho chairs which we
lind onco found very good to look at; "and,
after nil. tlie sideboard Is by bo much the
most expensive plccoof furniture in adin-
Itig i-onm, that it doesn't cost much more to
got ti whole* set than just that ouo piece.
And oven a walnut sideboard, new, would
not look well with theae chairs and thit

wub accepted by my wife. Thenceforth it
wub understood tbat if Aunt Jane should
Ijeq.-atli us that silver, we wero to pur*

Thu next evening, aa we wero again at
din nur, my wife remarked: jftSu...... .«o™_m
" 1 have been looking at carpets to-day,
and biiw nno that just suits me rich and
subdued, you know, but not dingy,"

" W.iy, stupid," rejoined *y. wife, petulantly (mid tho emphasis was all upon the
pot ii :nie), "did wo not agreo that the din*
ing-rt'oin must be refurnished* And this
carpet is so old and worn, of course itwould
not do at all with now furniture."
Again I acquiesced silently, and she pro*
.ceded to mako plans for meeting mo the
next day to examine and choeso the carpet
and furniture to be purchased later on.
Well, if my wifo's relations leifclior .hand*
some silver, I must of course provide things
in keeping with it
Sho met me according to appointment,
&tt buy right away. Ileal ostate is cheap

She tried lo put on a knowing look; i t sho

Impressed.   As it was, I weakly objut-tctl:
"My deaf, I don't know where in the
world I could get tbo money to buy a larger
and better houso—any houso ut all. ia mm.,"
"You could sell this," sho replied, nothing daunted,
"But if real estate ia a drug on tlto
market, I do not want to sell," I retortoil,
thinking cunningly to turn her own weapon
upon herself.     ■.*-.
"Thoro aro thoao shares of stock, then."
'•Butthnt stock is going up daily; if 1
wait six months, I can got double what ii
would bring now; or hold it, and draw lag
Intorest oh my investment"      ,
'•Well, what elso nro you going to do?
You said yourself that wo must have u
larger and better houso."
Thereupon I mentally bado a regretful
farewell to tho stock and tho monoy whieh I
hud expected to mako by holding it. My
Wife occupied her leisure time for i In; next
threo wboka in looking for a rOsid-juco

poor old ludy died this morning, 1 havo

As Aunt Jane had been at the point of
death for the past six months, I was hardly
surprised io hear this bit of nows. I did
iny best to comfort my wifo, however, nnd
comported myself like a dutiful neph. w-ln-
law nt tlio mournful ceremonies following
the death. .__.
When 11-oturned homo tho day nfter tho
funeral, my wife met mo at tho door, bor
face flushed, ber eyes blazing.

"What old crank!" I inquired, wondering-
ly.
"Why, Aunt Jane, of course.''
"I'm suro I don't know," I returned,
mildly; "but you should remember, iny
dear, tlmt—"
"Oh, I know she's dead, Sho wouldn't
give her things away under any other circumstances. She's left mo a hundred
dollars in cash, and that doar old silver to
my second cousin, John Scott. He'll sell it,
and spend every cent on liquor and cigars
andliurs.-s, I know ho will."
Then the blazo In her eyes was quenched
by a Hood of tears. I did my best to soothe
hor, but my efforts wore useless. I assured
her that if her cousin Bold the silvor, we
would bny it.
"I don't want it," sho declared; "I won't
havo it"—vory vehemently—"until won't
get a Bingle new thlat* in the house, or n
new dross, or tbat sealskin, or any tiling.
I'll just stay, horo with things ns they tire,
and John Scott can keep his silver, and you
can keep your building assoehuiou money

THE CITY OF MEXICO
It Is Nlco as Regards Cllintito, lint Its
Sewage Is Awful,
The City of Mexico is so often described
by newspaper correspondents ns a delightful place of residence that statements by

amazement by tho average reader.
The popular Idea of the city is that in it.

That evening, sho was much elated at the! Part of t!lt' cil>'ieven'll t,lG beai'I, of tho dry
prospoct  of being surrounded by  such season, "without its being filled with black,

was but nue cloud on her horizon.
■ "Tho dining-room will be nicorthan the
parlors," Bho remarked, plaintively; "I
am   afraid   tbat they will  really look
shabby."
I said nothing, hoping that if sho were
notconu-adicted she would not pursue tbe
subje-Uui.-ier.
Vain hopo! She had it fixed In her mind
that eilcueo gave consent, and when I came
homo tho next evening, had assumed that
tho parlors wero to be newly fitted up.      i
"Don't you think," she said,coaxingly,
"thnt ua io-ig as the parlors and dining-
rooms ni'o li bc torn up, and we aro to have
tho painter and paper-hangers hero, we
might oar. -11 hnvo the wholo house done!
It would bo vory littlo more troublo, and
then it would all look nice together."       _
"It would bo considerably more expensive," 1 remitistrated, faintly.
"You might draw the money out of the
tmllding association," she suggested, and
thou i know thatour savings iu that institution woro doomed.
Aunt Jano lingered a long time, la justice to my wife,! must admit that she had
become oblivious of the faot that all these
improvements depended upon a legacy,
whieh could only be possessed after the
death of hor venerable relative. *
A day or so after she bad deoided that
the house was to be thoroughly renovated
my wifo said to met
"I have been examining the parlor carpets, and I find that by using tbo best parts
of both, and buying a wide border, I can
get qui ten new carpet for our bod-room—
ubsolutoly unworn." j***
"Indeedl" 1 remarked, with pleased surprise; there was ons thing that she would
not want, anyhow. ■# ••--•™-
" Yes, and the carpet that is now on lt has
enough good to cover the children's room
if I put the worn part under the bed. Or
may-be I'd better put that on tbe spare
room," she added, reflectively, "and give
that ono to the children. Theirs gets such
hard wear tbat an old one will not last any
time, hardly." ■•'rim
I said nothing, but felt greatly roUovod/
"As long as wo don't have to buy abed-
stinking water," and frequently uftoi* sud*
den rains streets are flooded with iiblad-
dilution of sewage from wall to wall. Af i er
such rains pumps aro set to work all over
the city to pump water outof court-yards,
Stores and warehouses, and tho poor have
hard work to bale out their rooms with
basins and oups.
Such being hor condition tho City of Mexico is hardly tho haven for the tourist and
the weary seeker for recreation that she is
popularly supposed to bo. A mean temperature of 63.0 in January and 03.8 lu July will
not make up for unsanitary conditions' such
as was noted by Mr. Cbism.
Drunknrds In Belgium.
Tho country solons who make tho laws of
the littlo communo nonr Mons, in Belgium,
huvo shown great wisdom In dealing with
drunkards. A few monthe ago a law wns
pusBcd making It a serious uffeuso to bo
palpably drunk ln Belgium. These, local
wiso men concluded that the law was too
severe, and that thoy would content themselves with making drunkards useful und
diminishing drunkenness at tbo sumo time.
When drunkards appear on tho strools of
this vlllago tho Garde CbampBtro i-nkoB
them politely homo. Tho next morning lie
goes to tho houses of nil thoso whom he hnd
found drunk the -night before nnd presents
to each a broom fov sweeping tho street
The drunkard is allowed to choose between
working for the communo for one day ami
being prosecuted for drunkenness. Uo invariably elects to swoop the streets. Tho
vlllago streets are in consequence murvol-
ouBly clean, and tho sweepers, aftor swallowing moro than thoir natural share nf
dust, pass mental resolutions of sobriety,
and keep thom.

With Paresis I.rshnt
There nre many well known men con-
iii-pd in onr Asylums who butashort time
ngi) worn prominent nmong our business
and social circles.
Why nre liny I here?
Paresis i
Did It come on at once?
Not al all. It wns a f-radutil but positive
growth. Thoy overtaxed nature. The drain
on tholr vitality, their nerve powers,
tbelr brain ttssde, was too great, and Ihey
grnduallybutBUroly sank undor it. The
llilngsthcy did to bring this sad end nboiit
are precisely the sumo things being
douo hy thousands of mon and'women
lo-day. It Is not necessnry to namolhom.
They ntl end disastrously unless t-hcclted
or regulated.
Prof, Phelps, of Dartmouth College,
knew Hits fully when ho began his ox*
pcrlmeitls whleh resulted lulhodls-tovory
of the wonderful Palne's Celery Compound. Ho realized lhat Paresis (con-
sumptlon of the brain) wns our grent
National weakness, He knew thnt tho
lirnin nnd nervous system must lie forli-
ilKlloineutlheirrcnt si rnlns which ni>;dcrn
life (H'lng upon II. He saw that men wero
boeomliur debilitated mid women weakened bv the pressure and demands of life,
and ho sought nnd discovered tho remedy.
Tahiti's Celery Compound, If rightly
taken, will renew tho brain nnd build up
nerve tissues as fast as lliey become ex-
hati'-leil, It Is not it narcotic. It contains
no driiRS, no nostrums. It Is perfectly
pure. It Is absolutely harmless. The
high churn-tor of Its discoverer guarantees this, nud tho Indorsement or tho
medical and chemical professions
prove It.

Mr. David Morris, late manager of
the New Westminster Gus Works, has
met w itll an awkurd stroke of luck at
Seattle. While pushing througli the
great crowd near tho docks, his pocket
was picked of his pocket book containing nil Ins money nud valuables, and
his ticket to New York. Mr. Morris
will remain iu Seattlo for a short timo

Captain Whitelnw, the well-known
wrecker of San Francisco, hus announced his intention of making nn attempt very shortly to bring to tlie surface tho uid collier Barnard Castle,
wrecked at Race Rocks on 21st November, 1886, for the'purpoBO of removing whatever portion of her machinery
may yet be of valuo. Thua far all attempts to raise her hnve been unsuccca-
ful.
It is understood, saya the Times,
thnt tho Rev, P, McF. McLeod, hns
forwarded n communication to the
governor-general's reception committee
declining to tako pnrt in tho procession. Tho reverend gentleman takes
the ground that the precedence given,
in the order uf procession, to the bishops of the Roman Catholic nnd Anglican churches created nn invidious distinction among tho clorgy and was offensive lo other denominations.
A gentleman who wna going up Clement stroet after dark tho other night,
caught his foot on a protruding stump,
nnd measured his length on the place
where the sidewalk ought to bo. Bo-

Clement street is just about as nature
made it, with, perhaps, a little assistance from the board of works. At
night the place is as dark as Erebus,
and were it not for uur vigilant police
would be a choice location fur the footpad.

The funeral services of Mi's, C. D.
Rand were conducted in St. Andrew's
Presbyterian churchV 1 o'olock to-day
by tho Revs, T. Scutiler, paatuiymd E.
D. McLaren, B. D., of Vancouver,
The church was filled to its utmost
capacity by the sorrowing friends and
relatives of lho deceased, and also
many strangers. Tho funeral casket,
almost buried with wreaths, flowers
and immortelles, lay in front of the
pulpit. The relatives of the deceased
occupied tho front pnrt of the church
and wero with lhe larger pnrt of lho
congregation overwhelmed wilh grief.
Rev. Mr. McLaren read tho funeral
sorvico of the Presbyterian church.
Tho Rev. Mr. Scolder followed in a
solemn and affecting prayer, nfter
which an appropriate hymn was sung,
Mrs. Trew presiding at tho organ. Mr.
McLaren then began his funeral address, and in n brief but eloquent discourse referred touohwgly to tho vir*
tuos and beauties of the deceased, and
spoke words of consolation, hope nnd
comfort to the bereaved, who wero
molted to tears at many parts (if tha
address. The funeral cortege passed
up the oast aisle burno by Messrs. J.
D. Townley, T. Dunn, .1. W. Mc*
Fiirlaud, W. Downie, H. T. Ceperley
and Dr. Whetbnm, Several wreaths
were placed upon tho coflin ns it wan
carried forihj tho major pact of tho ns*
Bumbled people standing up reverentially with bowed heads and in deepest silence. It iB eeldom that so much
sincero sorrow is seon among such a
great number of poopio; almost every
uno in tho church looked as snd ns if
the deceased had been a sister to them.
Aa the coflin was placed in the hearse,
all the onlookers uncovered their heads
and the scone was solemn in tho extreme. Twonty carriages followed tho
hearse to tho cemetery. Tho melancholy event haa cast a gloom over tho
entire city and the profoundeat sympathy ia expressed on all sides for the
bereaved families. It was beautiful,
though sad, to Bto New Westminster
come out to do honor to tho memory
of one of her favorito daughters.

Some time during lust night burglars bruke int) the store of Gustavo
Hanck, at Ladner's Landing, and carried uway a large quantity of goodtt.
The thieve, left no truce behind, but
from their mode of entrance it is suspected that tho rascals were Chinamen.
The chief of police was tolographed to
send down a man to investigate the
robbery, but having no jurisdiction
outside tho city he handed tho message
to Mr. Moresby, who immediately sent
n provincial oflicer to Ladner's to run
down the burglars if possible. This is
tho lirst robbery of tho kind thnt has
occurred at LadnerV, and if the guilty

a discourugiug effect ou the future
