ON THE STUMP.
Leading Local Orators with Parliamentary Aspirations Address
I the Public Meeting
Which: is Attended by Two Hundred Qualified Voters of tho
Royal City.
An Evening of Great Entertainment, but Unaccompanied with
Startling Results.
Tho audience which gathered within
the walls of the city hall lust night was,
beforo tho work of tlio evening began,
a most orderly and intolligont-liiol-inj,'
ono, aud it was apparent that many of
tho elders of the city hud come out to
debate tho important question of par*
liaraent-yy representation fur Westminster. Unfortunately the presence
of a fow peraonB, chiafly~attho"Y6ttr df
the ball undor tho shadow of the gal*
lory whero their faces could not be
seen and whero their lupine howls
could bo (-nutted without fear of detection, waB a source of annoyance the
wholo evuuiug The rough and un-
gentlcmanly ccuduct of thia apparently inevitable, section of all our important meetings was not the work of
youug, raw boys, full of fun and noise.
Had it beon, tho niatter would have
awakened no surprise, but to see full*
grown men conducting themselves like
Fiji Islanders going to battle, is mora
calculated to inspire disgust than
amusement. The chairman, Mayor
Townsend, seemed thoroughly disgusted with the behavior of the crowd
at tho other end of the hall and more
than once intimated as muoh.
When Alderman Curtis arose and
moved that Mayor Townsend take the
chnir, the hall was nearly filled, The
motion being seconded, his worship
ascended the platform and ssid that
they had gathered to-night to select
some i/ood and true man to represent
this city in the local house. He hoped
the audience would givo all the candidates and other gentlemen who would
spenk, a patieut, quiet hearing. Ha
thought a proper representative could
be selected from the audience; one
who would represent the people and
not use the position to further his own
interests as has heretofore invariably
been thu case.   (Applause).
Mr. Jenns was then called upon and
took tho platform amid groat applause.
He Baid that although a lawyor ha was
nut mueh of a speaker aud his remarks,
he ussui ed thu audience, wuuld be very
few. In tho first place in coming for*
wnrd as a cmididafo fur uilice he could
say that it wub a difficult matter to determine what support the government
ought to get, but ho would not gu
flat-footed againat the government.
He would follow any well-dotiued system of government, not a party of one
or two men. The most important
thing was the redistribution of seats
and representation by population, He
had not been able to procure statistics
to present to-night, but he could safely assert that this district had a greater
population than the whole of Vancouvor Island. Secondly, he would advocate the ereotion of a traffio bridge
across tho Pitt River. There was in
that district a large tract of available
agricultural land, and a bridgo would
throw it iuto direct communication
with Wost mi uster. Ho had apoken to
many farmers in that district and they,
to a man, said a bridge would bo the
bost thing pussibto at the point named.
Thirdly, the now court-house should
be seen to this year; the present court*
houso was quite inadequate for tbo
wants of the city. Mr, Jenns con*
eluded hiB remarks by assuring his
hearera that Bhould they send him to
tho* house ha would fight spunkily for
the redistribution of Beats; and asked
tho doctors, if tbey clioae him, to send
him aa nn independent member.
Mr, M. Sinclair was next called upon
by the audience vociferously, but Mr.
Sinclair declined tu take tho rostrum.
Alderman T. Cunningham waB next
called, and stop-pod upon tho platform
saluted by the applause of his supporters. He began his remarks by saying
he was surprised to hear Mr, Jenns
beg off from making a speech. If a
barrister could do that, having Imd a
month of leisure to prepare, ha could
claim equal consideration. His time
during tho last two weeks had been
fully occupied by matters other than
political. His hoad had beon full of
the exhibition, and was in a continual
whirl and had not the time to prepare
an address, It was bad enough to be
criticized by the ordinary, common reporters of the daily press, but wheu
the prince of caricature himsolf, Mr.
Bengough, was present it wub a matter
to put iho beat speaker un his mottle,
and ho hoped Mr. Bengough would be
light on the amateur politician-.. Westminster's geographical situation was
very influential and sho ahould lead off
in all matters of provincial interest.
But in this respect we had somehow
not dono our duty. We had allotrcd
ourselves to becomo alienated, as it
were, from tho Island and othor parts
of the province. An effort had been
mado throe or fuur years ago to remedy
this alienation in part and to remedy
also the land-laws. He was proud
that the Dominion government had
beon compelled to back down and re*
model the land-laws in the interest of
tho Bottlers of British Columbia. Mr.
Cunningham hero gavo an interesting
recapitulation uf the late history of the
Now Westminster distriot in regard to
tho city and laws. He had had good
help in carrying out the exhibition,
and it was no mere country show. Wo
ought to determine to mako it a con*
tinned thing. We had boen suffering
a mild boycott, but wu had lately
shown how much we cared for any
boycott. Wo wero not advertised
enough. Baok in Ontario people knew
all about Viotoria and Vanoouvor, but
nothing of Now Westminster, At the
Toronto oxhibition he was proud to
say wo hsd taken the prize for fruit
over all Canada. What we wanted
was to be moro talked about; we ought
to bring ourselves more beforo the
people nf eastern Canada. Ho advocated applying to tho great manufacturing firms and the prominent
newspapers in tho east to sond rep*
vest'111 a ti ves out here. Ha would in
particular champion the rights of the
farmers of tho Now Westminster district. He hoped we nevor should see
tho fanners divorced from Westmin*
ster. The city and the farming com*
munity had to gu hand in  hnnd for
their mutual benefit, He never would
blindly support any government. It
had been said that he would. He
asked, was that hia record? He would
challenge any man to Bay different.
He would upposo tho Dominion government evory timo thoy attempted to
impose on thom. He had gono
through this district hr.lding the government up to ridiculo during the land
laws troublo, and he was londy to attack them again when necessary in the
interests uf Now Westminsler. Westminster wanifi a $2D,000 court hnuse,
ho would try to got mora whon he
wont to tho huuso (laughter), and a
815,000 or $20,000 schoul huuso. Ho
would push for tln-su requirements
with nil hiB suul. Another thing ho
would insist upon was a trunk ruad
duwn the Nurlh Ann. Wo had lust
all the Nurth Arm trado on account of
having no roud fur thu usu uf the
farmers. Wo had tho wholo district
behind us if wo could only got at it by
means of goud roads, Anothor road
was wanted on Lulu Island; and the
condition uf tho road between Brownsville and Popcum was shameful, two
thirds of it waa impassable. Many
settlors in that quarter are suffering
and the matter ought to bo remedied
at once. Tha traffic bridgo on the
Pitt river was no new thought, we had
been harping on that string for three
or fuur years. But it would take him
all night tu enumerate half of the
things we ought to get. He would
like Mr. Bengough tu illustrate this
thought, on one side a faultlessly
drossed Victoria dude, driving along
one of those beautiful Yuncouver Island roads in an English dog-cart, and
on the othor side a Westminster district sottler with a stove on his back
toiling waist deep through the mud to
reach his shanty. He would like to
tell Mr. Bengough how Victoria had
rultd the roost for yeara  paBt.   No
fiart of British Columbia had suffered
ike Westmiuster, sho was not the pet
of nny government and what she had
got was obtained by her own sturdy
efforts. The victories were all our
own, Victoria influence has kept this
province back for the last twonty-five
years. He had soen hundreds of
happy farmer's homes in Orogon and
Washington Territory arid he could
prove that those very settlers originally came to British Columbia and by
Victoria inHnencu had been turned back
and gone to the American side, and
thuse men had been loBt tu this provinco, to Canada and tlio British empire, Victoria wanted tu shove her
members into all the vacant seats on
the mainland as well as the islnnd.
But let hur attend tu her uwn affuirs;
we have given her a doinunstrntiuu
during the last few days uf what we
can do in that direction, and he hoped
tho lesson wuuld nut bo lust un her,
He belioved Westminster was thu bcatf
iplace fur the scat of government, it]
was central, easily reachud and pos*|
soasod moro solid advantages than Vio-1
torin; It had been said that he was a
suliiah man. But ho would deny thnt
charge. He challenged any man to
show when or where he had ever boen
selfish in public aflairs. Thu bill fur
hardware for the exhibition ahuwed
that only ten per cent, of the total
amount went to tbe two Cunningham
hardware houses in tho city. He had
been faithful in the duty entrusted to
him and ho would be faithful tu the
end. He would use the position for
the advantage of Westminster; not
abuse it for his own benefit. He
thought he could do well for Westmin*
Btor, ho had made a good record this
year and it waa hts intention to do his
duty iu every relation uf life. (Ap-
plause).
Aid. Jaques, who had been shouting
out something from the darkneaa undor
tha gallery, but which could not be
distinguished on account of the yells
of the audience, of "platform, platform," Btrodo forward .to tho platform
and said he would ask the electors of
Westminster what they cuuld be thinking about to elect a man to represent
thom who hud forseworu his nlleginnco
tu the British government.
Mr. Sinclair wanted t> know if the
$1,400 for hardware used nt the pnrk
covered everything or only a partof
the work. Aid. Cunningham replied
thut tho $1,400 mentioned covered
everything. As to the allegiance business ho said he had nover sworn nlleginnco to any sovereign, prince or potentate other than Her Majesty Queen
Victorio. Aid. Jaques again took the
platform and frum memory recited the
form uf tha declaration of an intend*
ing American citizen, which ho said
hnd boon Bworn nnd subscribed to by
Mr. Cunningham, and said he cuuld
prove it, too. Aid, Cunningham said,
iii explanation, that it was a recognized
fact all over tho United States thnt an
alien, if he wishes tu protect his pro*
pert;,must dcfilare his intention to bo*
annua citizen, nnd this was all ho had
douo, ho had never gono any further
thm) that. Hut perhaps thu vory man
whu was uis.kiii'j, this hue and cry was
nut abuvu suspicion hmi-i-If. Por-
hnps if wo were to enquire closely wo
might oven find that he had shuuldored
thu gun and bayonet tu tight fur Uncle
S:un. (Cries of, "uh, oh, h'd never do
that, yuu know, he ain't man onough.")
Aid. Cunningham repented, "no, he is
uut man enough." Again he would
sny ho was a full fiedgud British aubject and a loyal ono. Ringing applause greeted the conclusion of his
speech.
Ex-Mayor Dickinson was next called
to the platform, and a perfect whirlwind uf applauee, mingled withchoers,
saluted tho popular ox-mayor as he
stepped forward to address the meeting. Ho began by recommending that
Mr, Cunningham be sent at once to
tho houso, nud if he could do only one
third of what ho had said he would,
Westminster would bu well served, in*
deed. But hu was sorry to hoar fio
muoh capital "I" iu Mr. Cunningham's
harangue. Ho seemed unwilling to
glvo any credit to tho committees
which hud su ably seconded him.
Thore woro many things he claimed
to have dune which others ought to
havo got tho credit for; Mr. Homer,
for instanco, who had slaved dny and
night and doue hia beat for the eity.
He had not cumo thore to make a
speech, but he would have liked if Mr.
Cunningham had given a little more
credit to his cu workers. Wo should
send a mun tu Viotoria who would
thoroughly represent us, n man with a
mind and will of his own, who would
uot be a nonentity, somebody who
would bo npproved by tho government.
Mr. Jenns, liko Mr. Cunningham, had
promised to support tho government,
and his claims woro worthy of consideration. Ho thought that high schools
ought to bo be mado self-supporting
and thoy could   bo mado so,   Ho
thought tho Lulu Island road and
bridge would be a great benefit to the
city and he could entirely concur with
Aid. Cunningham in saying that the
roads from Westminster were ina
shucking condition. But ho would
conclude by reiterating that if Mr.
Cunningham could get for the city one
half or one third of what he says, we
hud better send him as soon as possible.   (Applause).
Ex-Mayor Hendry was the next
speaker. Ho said he was not n candidate
for tha legislature, he had had all the
honors ho could stand for somo timo
to coma. Mr. Cunningham had shown
in a, masterly manner what the noeds of
the city wore, and ho took pleasure in
moving a resolution "that in the opinion uf this meeting Alderman Thomas
Cunningham is a fit and proper persnn
tu represent New Westminster city
in the legislature, and we hope
that he will be elected by acclamation." This was seconded by Sergeant Major McMurphy,
Mr. Geo, A. Kelly at this point rose
and asked If it would be in order to
make an amendment to that resolution. Being Informed in the affirmative, Mr. Kelly got tip upon the platform. He was hailed with roars of
welcome that shook the building to
its foundation, and were doubtless
audible blocks away. Mr. Kelly laid
this meeting was assembled to discharge a very important duty. Would
they elect a man to represent himself 7 j
If they examined the legislative as* I
sombly tbey would not find a man who
represented anybody but himself. He
had been 25 yean in the province and
the system or self-representation has
been the rule all that time. The people were pawns on the political chessboard, and not represented at all.
He was always opposed to Mr. John
Robson's policy, but believed him a
clever politician, and he (the speaker),
was not prepared to oppose his government justnow. The wildest Tipperary
tenant would not think of killing a ty*
rant landlord next week who would be
sure to die a natural death in six
months. Next session would end Mr.
Robson's career as a local politician,
and it remained for thom to elect a
mnn not opposed to the governmotit
but fit to express his own ideas and
theirs in the local legislature. He
did not think Mr. T. Cunningham a
tit person to represent them. He had
condemned himself by admitting that
he was pledged to become an American
oitizen. He broke that pledge just as
anon as ho found it would suit his own
intorest to do bu. Could they trust
auch a mau tu keep the pledges he
would make to them ? As a newspaper reporter, in the cily council
uhamber, bu had a good opportunity
tu judge Mr. Dickiuaun as a public
mau and never knew him to voto
against the city's interests in fnvur of
his own. He was pledged to support
Mr. Jenns who as "attorney-general
for the uppositiuu" would have great
influence. In dealing with an opposition in which thore wns a legnl adviser
tho government would have to be vary
careful, aud Mr. Jonns under the circumstances would have more influence
than five men like Mr. Cunningham.
He begged leave to propoie the following amendment to Mr. Hendry's resolution: "That Mr. Thomu Cunning*
ham is not fit to represent this city,
and that one of the other tvo be elect*
ed." After some delay the amendment was seconded by Mr. Beers.
Mr. Kelly objected to the names of
the candidates being Inserted and
said they could attend to that after
the amendment had been carried.
Mr. Kelly's speech was most humorous and wai interrupted by roars of
laugher many timet.
Aa soon as the tremendous uproar
and shouts of merriment that greeted
the finish of Mr. Kelly's remarks had
partially subsided, Mr. T. J. Trapp requested permission to aik one question. A deafening chorus of "platform, platform," brought Mr. Trapp,
smiling, to the front. He asked if it
was the intention of the candidates to
submit to an election by acclamation
taken here. He said it would be a
graceful thing to send a man to buo*
port the government and asked the
candidates to consider that aspect of
the question. We want a good deal
and Mr. Cunningham wai going to
stand up sturdily for ub. Mr, Cunning*
ham knew what we wanted, he had
the inside trick on that subject. Mr.
Jenns wai a very able gentleman, but
young, and besides he had not identified himself asa public man. In foot
the majority of the people didn't know
much of him.
Mr. M. Sinclair advised tbe audience
to select the best mau before them, and
remarked that he thought Westminster eity ought to have a representative for herself alone.
Mr. Beers most reluctantly came
forward and addressed the meeting,
his leuurks boing mainly confined to
n warm eulogy on ex-Mayor Dickinson.
Mr. S. H. Webb and Mr. W.
Howay also spoke in the same strain.
Mr. Dickinson aaid tho two other
candidntos had been canvassing for a
month and it would be no use of him
trying to make head againat that start,
but if requisitioned ho would stand.
Mr. Jonns said It would bo unfair to
his constituents to withdraw frum the
contest at this juncture, and ha would
therefore contest the election to the
best of hia power and ability. This
mooting he said was no fair thing to
go by: there wero 1200 electors in the
citj and only about 150 present. The
questions oould only be settled at the
polls.
His wonbip made some justly severe reflections ou the disorderly
crowd at the farther end of tha hall,
who, although not entitled to voto,
made the most noise. He hoped the
bost min would be elected. He then
proposed putting the resolutions.
Aid. Curtia, as he stepped out to the
front, wai saluted by hearty applause.
He said ho was a great stickler tor fair
play, and thought the chairman was
putting the resolution wrong, is it
did away with tite ballot Some
gontlomon had been telling them
what certain men had not done.
Now, something elso devolved upon
us more than merely returning a man
to a parliamentary seat. The day had
passed away when a man eould say,
"I've done no harm." He wouldn't
§ivo two straws for a man who hid
one no harm in the community. Aid.
Cunningham had displayed an unmual
amount of energy, and it wai time thit
Weitmimter hnd somebody of that
stamp to represent hor. Gut whit
was it to havo a clean record? Hadn't
we all clean records (a familiar voice
from the rear, "not by a hanged
sight!" roan of laughter). Ho oould
find • thousand men who hid unim
peachable records in this city, but not
one among them fit to represent ub in
parliament. Mr. Jenns was not a
public man, but Mr. Cunningham had
distinguished himself in standing up
for duty. (Applause). Mr. Cunningham was a stayer, a most important thing in a politician. He
was a man who would stick to the
government liko a burr until he
got what hia constituency wanted; he
would literally take them by the
throat for tho sake of his ciy. And
what was the good of a man who
couldn't blow himself up a lii.tle, once
in a while? He was surprised to hear
Mr. Kelly carry on in the way that he
did; he made that amendment for no
good and pushed two men int" the res*
olution so ob to stand Mr, Cunningham off. Mr. Kelly, "no such thing."
A voice from tho rear, "J Jot by a
hanged sight." Aid. Curtis left tho
rostrum amid deafening appl mso and
the wildest uproar in the body uf the
hall. This waa redoubled vhon Mr.
Kelly was seen to take the platform.
He uid ho was perfectly amand at the
"cheek" and the cool awmive uf tbat
raw young man. But, as Ins often
been said, "Who thinks hi knows
everythihg more tban tl 9 man
that doesn't know an /thing 1"
This young man' knew nothing
of his own profession, and yet he
came here to advise you, Ht told you
gravely that he was "one of iho family;" yes, ono of the local, ro; :il, pious
family whose reign is over. But if
they were influenced by hii suggestion and followed him, be wi uid wish
them good-bye. The chairnan said
Mr. Bole's resignation had not yet
been published, but would be out
soon. A vote of yeas and nays wai
taken on tho resolution, and so fir as
that imperfect form of judgidg wont
the nays most decidedly had it,
H!b worship thanked the ludience
for their attendance and said he would
be happy to call another mi eting at
any time the electon wislu I. This
ended one of the liveliest t ud most
amusing meetings held in trie Royal
City in a long time.
MRS. GEORGE WISE.
The Descendant of an Indian Bujab, Ucr
HUlory*
Mrs. George Wise, the widow of tho
late George Wise, who at tho timo of
his death was registrar of tho oourt at
Westminster, and formerly connected
with tha press of thia oity, liming been
thrown upon her resources to make a
living, is at present engaged in teaching a system of hand*painting on silk
aud velvet which she was the fint to
introduce into this country. Madame
Aida Zuleika Wise has a rci larkable
history. She is the grand-daughter of
a princess of India and the granddaughter of one of the most powerful
rajans that tha't country ban had in
modorn timos. He was enormously
wealthy, numbering his elephant} by
hundreds and his palaces by scores.
When the iron hand of Clivewas subjecting the country the rajah, n warm
friend of the conqueror, was uisoasi*
natedandhts family destrojad by a
jealous relative who espoused the cause
of tho malcontents. Only on** daughter escaped—the Princess Meigbcn-
haye—who married an English officer.
She left two aons, one of whom be*
came a major in the British army nnd
the other a captain in the Easr Indian
navy. Mn. Wise is the daughter of
the last mentioned officer. We understand it is the lady's wish to return to
India, and she is bending eve* y energy
to the accomplishment of that object.
We know her to be an accomplished
lady and most proficient in the parti*
cular art which she teaches—Hast Indian work of rare baauty. Ita adaptability to house ornamentation in many
forms makes it a valuable acquisition
at a time when beautiful homes are
bocominc numerous and now ornamental designs and methods aro being eagerly sought for by the refined in nil
classes of society.—Victoria Times.

*-n*raa Tj-hec Potlatch."
Oue of the largest and most valuable
Indian Potlatches or "Give away for
100 per cent, return" will t iko place
at Fort Rupert, near the nor-hern end
of this Island about Christr.as Day.
The potlatch, will be givon by Captain
Jim, an aged Indian, who is known
from one end of the provlnoe to the
other. The artioles to be lont will
oompriso 0,600 blankets, 1.00 pain
silver bracelet] (Indian nnko-.) 40
large canoes, and muck-a-mu k galore,
in all valued at $10,000. Fur -.hii
$10,000 Captain Jim, according to
native custom will receivo v ithin two
yean $20,000. Our modem ihylooks
will be green with envy to s> o an Indian beating them outof sigh Ut their
own game. The potlatch wi embrace
nineteen tribes, residing hot* eeu Qua-
licum and Fort Rupert. Thii will
mako tho hundredth potlatr i Captain
Jim has given, and he int. mis it to
eclipso all former efforts in that llne,
and judging from the value and quantity of tho artioles to be "donated we
should sny it was thu biggest un record.
The centurion hero ut thi potlatch
is about 05 years of age, of fine physique and speaks English with romarkablo fluency. In the arly days
of the settlement of this Island, the
authorities deemed it necessary to
bombard the Fort Rupert Indian village (the cause has escaped the mem*
ory of the writer,) and Captain Jim,
who was then a noted ind valorous
war chief, wbb taken as hoiti.go. Several thousand Indians will no doubt
tako part in this Indian feast. A law
has been passed by the Dominion parliament putting a stop to these "pot*
latehes," but tho old Indiana do not
understand thii infringment on what
they justly consider their horeditary
rights. The praotice, we admit, is per*
nicious in the oxtremo, but its suppression should be gradual, so that
with tho present elder generation of
Indians the feait ihould dte out It
ii well to prevent the young Indians
continuing the practice, but those who
have looked upon it as a life long duty
should be allowed to continue it, until
they at least are githered to the happy
hunting grounds, The greatest oursa
ii the liquor that is taken to these
potlatches by depraved ind hardened
white men, but this the authorities by
a little energy could readily prevent.

Tho   meeting   last night was   a
failure, if its main  object was to
aocure unanimity with respejfc to n
person to represent tho city   during
tho fng end session of the fifth provincial parliament.   To yo   behind
tho object, if the actuating  motive
of tho promoters of the meeting wns,
as from the   general   tone of   the
public expressions we havo   reason
to conclude, to convince the government that Westminster desires   to
roturn n member distinctly favorable tothe government on this occasion, without opposition, tho   meeting may be said to hnve been a success, in that it fairly demonstrated
such to be the largely preponderant
sentiment.   While,   therefore,   the
spirit of  the thing  is aU   right,
tho letter appears likely to be defeated   by  two  or    more   candidates    insisting    upon     running
on    the     same     ticket,    which
oach, of  course, has  a perfect and
inalienable right to do.   A contest
appears inevitable now, and wo do
not seo why tlio candidates should
bo worried   any furthor by well-
meaning persons with the object of
inducing thom to withdraw in onch
othor's favor, or even to mako room
for a possible "dark horse." Strictly
speaking, wo suppose, there are only
two candidates to be considered as actually in the field, so far,  Mr. Jenns,
the first  announced, has declared
definitely and finally that ho   could
not, in justice to his supporters, retire from tho contest, and it is hardly reasonable to expect Mr,  Cunningham to throw up tho sponge nt
this   stage.   Wo  do  not seo but
what the city will have a creditable
aud useful, not to say able, representative in either.    On their own
professions, both candidates are inclined to bo government supportors,
although   the  expressions of  Mr.
Jenns' chiof supporter at the meeting last  night, if they aro to bo
taken as responsible and npproved
utterances, would go to show that
Mr. Jenns is pulling for what opposition support the electorate may
afford, as well.   Mr. Cunningham,
while declaring that he would not
give tho government a "slavish support"—and   no  one, we  suppose,
doubts this—is, on the whole, to be
considered   as  the candidato from
whom the most government support
is lobe expected.
An   explorer   numed   Lumholtz
wbo has lately returned to EJbrbJtc
from  North Queensland lived for
four years with the chocolate colored
natives of that country.    During
that whole time it may be snid that
ho wns like tho Apostlo Paul "in
dangers oft" of almost every kind.
His intrepedity, howover, was rewarded, for ho brought back with
htm   no  fewer than 900 sen-irate
bird skins, he discovered four new
mammals, the trco climbing kangaroo  unci   three   hitherto unknown
varieties of the opossum.   In addition a large variety of sketches and
hundreds of insects were secured by
this naturalist.   The chief interest
attaching to this gentleman's travels
is, however, in the fact tbat during
a great part of the time ho spent in
Queensland be lived, moved,  and
had   hia   being with   tribes of tho
lowest nnd most brutal of mankind.
These natives aro described as boing
physically a fino race, many of thoir
women being handsome.   They are,
howovor, absolutely without morals
of any sort and totally indifferent
to human life.    Although they are
cannibals, human flesh is a luxury
and not their usual food.    Thoy
only eat their captives in war. From
Mr. Lumholtz's   account it  would
seem that a certain epicurean taste
prevails with   oven such depraved
beings.    Thus, while man's flesh is
not   in   great favor, being too salt,
whilst   n Chinaman, being fed  on
rice, has a tender vegetable flavor—
like a mealy cauliflower, but ovon
he is not so tender und juicy ns a
nativo baby, fat and sweet,    Whon
a   nativo wants  a wife ho simply
goes and takes ono without anybody's   leave, and  then thore is a
genoral row, tho men fighting and
the women backing their fanciers,
The   females   appoar  to  like this
rough   and   ready method, wo nro
told, for "they go and don't seem to
mind it in the least."   Wo have all
heard   of   tho  anxious parent who
told his scapegrace son it was time
he took a wife, and the reply of the
,  reprobate as to whoso wife his father
oould   recommend.    This   finds   a
parallel   among tho tribes of Nortii
Queensland, for it is not at all uncommon for ono savago to take by force
the wifo or wives of his neighbor,
and   until   another stranger comos
along nothing particular happens.
The romarkablo thing is, however,
that all tho old men have tho prettiest wives, which seems to bear out
this   traveller's theory that "ovon
theae degraded tribes posscus many
qualities in common with the highly
civilized European."   It is scarcely
gratifying to cultured humanity to
recognize that we havo anything in
common with those cannibal savages,
but tbe faet remains that
■'Oim touch of naturo makes the whole
world kin"
in this oas6 as in many others.
We believo it may bo safely said
that the returns avo all in now—
that the provincial press has "relieved it3 mind" on tho subject of
tbe whereabouts of the next exhibition ; and we confess wo have seen
nothing which   inclines us to alter
our opinion that tho annual meeting
came to tho right conclusion.   We
do not caro  to givo muoh space to
noticing  tho  sharp  things which
have been said about that meeting.
We aro quito willing to admit that
tho   tone   of  one or two   of tho
speeches   was   not exactly what it
should havo been, and somo of tho
"intorjoctions''   wero  in very bad
taslo; but for these things individuals were  responsible.    As far as
tho meeting, considered ns a whole,
wos concerned, thero wns nothing to
complain of, aside from an absence
(due to overworking of ofiicials) of
some usual routine, whicli affected
neither the legality of tbo proceedings nor tho complexion of the result.   When  wo  havo eliminated
from   the   discussion all tho sharp
things aforesaid, and "panned out"
the   remainder, wo find as tho resulting  product,  a   demand   from
Victoria, Vancouver and Nanaimo,
that tho oxhibition be held at thoso
plaoes.   That is all,   Of courso we
have a good many words about thn
alleged "breach of faith," and tbo
faet that so much stress is laid upon
that, confirms us in our conviction
that New Westminstor is the place
for tho exhibition.   Our cotemporaries would not confine themselves
so   strictly to  ringing the changes
upon that absurd pretext, if they
had any arguments to advance. Suppose that at some meeting of tho
B.O.A.A. "in tho early dawn and
dusk of timo," a resolution had been
passed   that the exhibition should
forever lead a vagabond existence-—
upon whom would   that resolution
be binding 1 Cortainly not upon tho
hundreds who never heard of such a
resolution, and who have paid their
subscriptions in good faith to advance the interests which are helped
by the exhibition.   No such resolution, of courso, ever was   passed.
Tho  exhibition has wiggled ubout
from placo to place, in obedienco to
what seems to be a natural law governing  tho  early development  of
such things; but, as a gentleman at
the meeting  pointed out, tbe plan
has never answered,   Our position
is, that we cannot have an exhibition worthy of tbo province, except
it is held always in the same place;
and we further maintain that New
Westminster is that place.    Nature
has   mado   New Westminster the
centre of tho farming intorest, just
as it lias mado Nanaimo the centre
of the coal interest; and that should
settlo   tho   question,   unless   Now
Westminster declined to take up its
responsibility in the niatter.   Wo
nil know that it has not declined;
but, on the contrary, has risen to
the occasion, and put the exhibition
upon a much higher piano tlian it
ever beforo occupied.    Something
like $25,000 for preparations, and
81,000   or §2,000 in membership
fees, besides over S4-000 for "attractions," is a record which leaves oil
former onos quite out of sight, and
furnishes an abundant guarantee for
futuro success.   New Westminster
lias displayed a spirit tho vory reverse of  sectional with respect to
other annual "events," and as Nature has marked hor as the locality
of tho one undor discussion—which
must havo a fixed locality if it is to
be successful—the treatment which
she  has   recoived   from her sister
oities in   tbe matter—particularly
from Victoria—has been anything
but fair  and generous,    She has
strained  her resources to secure a
thoroughly successful representation
of the interest of which Nature hns
made her the guardian, and communities  debarred   by their  position
from doing justico to that intorest,
seek   to  prejudice it, and rob tlio
Royal Oity of the fruit of its energy
and liberality, simply to gratify a
miserable sectionalism.

An explanation of tho profusion
of colonels in Kentuoky is to bo
found in part in the Govorsior's
privilege to appoint colonels on his
staff ad libitum. Governor Black-
bum appointed Bixty in Louisville
alone, with proportionate numbers
for tho back counties. It is belioved that no governor of Kentucky
ever had his ontiro staff together at

After lecturing began to bo overdone,

CIRCUS   AT   TOMBSTONE.
Uow tho Cowboys Took Hold nml Mun-
iigcil It In Their Own Way.
It was in 1870 that Stoddard's circus mid
great zoological exposition visited Tomb:
stone, writes un Arizona correspond''a! to
tho St Loula itepubltcan, It wns horaldod by
glaring pictures on the bill boards, doad
walls and local papors for more than n
month In advance. There were pictures of
a man escaping from tho jaws of a lion, nr n
woman defeating a tiger in asinglo combat,
of a blood-thirsty contest between u hyena
and a boa constrictor, and of a woman riding
seven horaeo pell moll at onco. Tho advent
of Uid show wna awaited with interest and
with a good deal of impatience.
lt wns evident to tho natives that tho
circus wns to bo an event in the annals of
the town. A circus was a rare even!, in
thoao parts. Tho railroad wns eight miles
from Tombstone, nud tho towns numbered
in that region woro so far apart that it,
would not pay a judicious manager to take.
a caravan across country. The cowboys,
the stage robbers, tho minors, tho proprietors, the gamblers, tho buU-whaokora, the
merchants, tho clerks, tho loafers, the Indies
of leisure uud tho gentlemen whoso avocations woro not described in the directory
were on the alert for tlio great ovput.
The show was advertised to appear on
the Fourth ef July, and among the innumerable attractions pictured on tho bill boards
wns thnt of a balloon nsconslon. As curly
as tho last duys of Mny, wlion co*-v*boya
and singe robbers parted on the streets,
they alleged iu tho parting adieu that Ihoy
would meet at the circus. The local papers
were filled with the groat ovcnt for weeks;
and nil events woro dated before or after
the circus.
At last it oamo. Four wugonu, pointed
in gaudy yellow, preceded by four and followed hy two horsomon, appoared in town
unheralded about six o'clock on the moruing of the Fourth of July, 1870. Tombstono sat up late, and seldom arose before
oight or nine o'clock in tho forenoon. But
whon Tombstono was awako thero was always n bustle. About ton tho town was
roady for tlio circus, and so were Charleston, D03 Poso, Contention, Silver Gulch,
Cochise, Poor Lo, Tough Nut, Paradise
Lost, Black and Tun, Murphyvillo uud sovoral other towns in tho neighborhood that
had como to tlie metropolis of tho mining
district iu force.
Tho fun began when tho gang fouud they
wero not going to soo nil that hnd beon advertised. Tho show wont on decorously
enough for a couplo of hours. The audionco laughed at tho clown's chestnuts with
nil the forms of good breeding. The elephant was walked around tho ring with tho
painted clown on top of him, and thoro wu3
uot n pistol pulled. Tho Greatest Acrobats
in tlie world twisted and tumbled in the
arona
In fact, overy thing went on smoothly until a gentleman with a swallow-tail cont and
his hair parted iu tho middle came oat und
mndo a speech, thanking the audience for
their attention and hoping that, lho circus
would have tho ploasuro of cater! uhiing
them wlion next it camo around. Now, up
to lhat timo tlioro had not been a single man
killed inside tho canvas. Of course, the
couple of fakirs who tried to soil reserved
scots nnd special tickets for n side-show on
tho outside, und who were promptly shot to
death, don't count.
Whou the gentleman in swnllow-tnll coat
announced tliot lho performance wus over
thoro wero murmurs heard all over tho
amphitheater, Growling was the order of
the day at flrst. Neighbors communed with
each other nud snid they were victimized,,
that thoy were bilked, that the eonfltjonco
gamo wns played on them. Then Jack Rin-
go, boss ot nil tno cowboys nud rustlers iii
the region * arose, with his yollow hair in
picturesque ringlets streaming over his
shoulders, and asked tho gentleman in
swallow-tail: "What's de matter wid do
mau dat wns to bo ehnwed by de lion I"
It was painfully evident that the gentleman in a swallow-tali was embarrassed. His
supply of words lind run short nnd ho could
not make au answer. Then Roddy KilgorOj
noted in the region ns tho most talented und
most successful stage robber in all Arlconn,
arose nud in tones as gentle ns the murmurs
oftho neighboring Santa Cruz inquired:
"Wlion is dat gal in kneo breeches and Mre
arms goln to havo do aotr-to with tho tiger.'''
Tho party with tho swallow-tail, with hair
evenly divided between tho oyos, wns still
nt a loss for words. Hegrlnned gontly, but
did not speak. Thon a womnn from Contention took a hand in tho proceedings and
asked: -' Whon is tho hienner aud do boa
constructor goin' to havo do'r milli"
Still no reply from tho gontlomnn in tho
swallow-tail, who balanced himsolf from
foot to foot in the middle of tho ring. Thero
was silence for a whole minuto and then
Jack Ilingo, who was still on his feot, said:
"Mister, if you don't trot out dot lion and
man I'll shoot." This was menacing, but the
boss of tho circus was still smiling. Ho did
not smile long.' Jack Ringo, who hnd been
nervously flusfcriiig his pistol for some time,
filially pulled uud thu gentleman in full dross
fell to il-so no more. Thon tlioro was a general fusillade, cow-boys,stngc robberr., prospectors, miners, gamblers nnd moro peoplo
took u hand nnd soon thoro was nothing but
smoke visible.
Tlio sequel is simple. Tho* circus mou
who oamo within rango of tho bullots wero
either killed or disabled. Tho rest took to
tho prairio. aud when tho smoko cloarod
away tho circus wna in tho hands of the deluded patrons. Then tho show commenced
in earnest. Tlioro woro two Mexican lions
caged up and tho cowboys announced t hat it
was the proper caper to rolcnso them und
lot tho people soo them. Then tho non-combatants begnn to ngitato tho aund in the direction of Tombstone. You bet tho women
nud children nnd tho husbands and fathers
traveled.
And tho boys had n heap of fun when thoy
started a fight botween the elephant und n
cougar. Whenovor a circus mun showed
himsolf lie was promptly pooped ovor, and
when tho gang hnd surfeited themselves
there was nothing loft but a lot of dead c-im-
vassmen and lions and tigers wilh big bullet holes in their hides. That wns lho Inst
circus that over wont to Tombstono.

Bryan O'Lynn had no besots for to wear,
So he came to Westminster to buy him a pair.
" I'll have one pair of thick ones and one pair of thin,
If I can find J. Rousseau's," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He hunted the stores all along the main route,
Says he, "The right one I've not yet found out.
I want J. Rousseau—I'll buy only from him,
For he sells the cheapest," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He stepped a little west of McKenzie street,
He met Rousseau's sign—sure it was a great treat;
He lifted the latch, and Jim stood within.
" I've found it at last," says Bryan O'Lynn.
We showed him both Calf Boots, Kip and Cowhide,
The ones we praise mostly, without seams at the side.
We have Boots of all kinds, from Quebec and Berlin;
" Sure you have boots for the million," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He bought him his boots, which of course were no trash,
He paid down the money, for we sell only for cash;
To the public he says, "Be not taken in,
But buy from J. Rousseau," says Bryan O'Lynn.
" If here is a leak in the toe or side of your shoe,
Just take it to Rousseau, that's all you need do;
He will peg it or patch it just while you are in,
And the charge seems like nothing," says Bryan O'Lynn.

The Final Mulch.
At u mooting of tho lacrosse club,
held last night, it waa decided to play
tho final gamo of the season with tho
Vancouver club on Saturday week,
providing the latter agree that tho
match is to be for the Alhanibra cup,
and also that the cup be on tho field,
to be takon awaybytheviotors. Undor
these conditions . the match will be
played, but under no others, Vancouver has wuu 3 games and lost tho
samo number; Westminster has won
and Inst 2 games, consequently tho
percentage of both clubs is equal. A
final gamo to decide which club is entitled to the championship and the
cup, Bhould bo played, and if Vancouver agrees to the conditions proposed tho question will be easily settled.       	
A Fine Collection.
Mr. Wm. Hall, of Sumaa, an old
and respected pioneer, and ono of the
most accomplished tixidermists in the
country, was in the city yesterday
visiting his many old friends. He had
on exhibition nt tho late provincial
fair a handsomo case of stuffed birds
and animals, probably tho most complete collection evor seen iu the province. Tho birds numbered 88 distinct speciea. The wholo were arranged on a miniature mountain, the
birds perched on trass und rocks, and
tho animals peepim,* from caves on tho
hillside. The whole collection was
admircd by all who inspected it, mid
it waa pronounced by experts to bo
one uf tbe linest things they had evor
scon. Tho case and its contents has
been purohoaed from Mr. Hull at a
figure suitable to its worth.

Tbe Bombardment Ended.
Mayor Townsond has ordered a bus*
pension of tho heavy blasting in removing Btumps and rocks on tho Pel-
hum street contract, and just in timo,
for tho inhabitant-) of tho neighborhood had to flee from their homes y3S-
torday in terror for thoir livca. A regular siege by the Russian fleet that
frightened tho Victorians out of their
boots a fow years ago, could rot have
carried moro dismay with it. The
noon-day blast yesterday was accompanied by thu usual shower of Btumps
and rocks, which scattered in all directions, doing considerable damage. Mr.
A. Charleaon's parlor windows wero
broken in, while a largo fragment of ri
rout crashed through tho front door of
It. J. Rickman's house. Moat for*
tumiti-ly, no ono was hurt by the bombardment, the inmates having taken
refuge iu flight before tho blast was
explodud. When theso casualties wero
roportod to Mayor TownBend ha im*
mediately ordered that heavy blasting
bo stopped, and the contractors ha a*
beon notified to that effect. The rocks
and stumps on Pclham street are vory
large, and the contractors claim that
they cannot bc removed except by
heavy blasts. This may bo eo, hut
tho lives and proporty of tho poople
of that locality are worthy aa much
consideration aa tho convenience of
lho contractors.
Daltou McCarthey addressed a publio meeting in Queen's Hall, Montreal,

Mr. E. A. Jenns is in the field to

will havo considerable weight on tho
result of tho election. Ho is confident
of success, and is conducting his canvass in that spirit.
Aid. Cunningham in quite cheerful
respecting his prospects for election
whon tho decisive day arrives, Ho
has tho support of aumo of the most
powerful names in tho city, who havo
promised to voto and work for him to

long atop towards victory, and consequently ho fools onuy on the score of
final results. Hn is making a preliminary canvass among his friends pro*
paratory to opening a brisk campaign.
How many other candidates will
offer themselves fur election is not
known, but it ia not expected thu present number will bn incrcaacd. If it
is, any forecast of tho roaults of tho

act as a body guard to tho czar en
routo from Kiel to Berlin. After arriving at tho capital hia escort from

GREAT IMPROVEMENT SCHEME,
London, Oct. 10.—Tho counly
council have approved of plans for
some radical improvements in London
Btreota. The Strand ia to bo widened
its ontiro length; Holywell ia to be improved out of existence, and a new
Btreet will bo opened from the Strand
to Holborn at tho cost of a million
and a half sterling. Thia, it is announced, ia only the beginning of a
great scheme for beautifying and improving the great London thorough-
fares to which the councils already
Btand committed. Old fogy ism which
has stood in tho way of progress in
thia direction for centuries, has now
given away to an enlightened spirit of
improvement, and it is likely that the
vigor and enterprise manifested in
many directions by the county councils
will in a few years mako of the great
highways of London something more
than crooked, narrow, and ugly cow-
paths.
