To-day the races at the grounds of
the Victoria Jocky Club took place, in
which a large number cf horses participated. One of tho attractions was
the Indian races, in which forty Indians in war costumes participated.
Lib. rati'a concerb last night was a
dream of instrumental musio. Nothing like such music was ever heard in
the province. Liberates cornet solo
was particularly fine.
A quarrel thai nearly resulted iu a
fearful tragedy occurred in one oftho
oity hotels on Wednesday morning.
The quarrel was between father and
son, Tho son drew a revolver and
fired two shots both missing the mark.
The young would-be-murderer has

A news paragraph that a shipment
of machinery has just been made from
au Ontario town to a lumbering firm
in British Columbia is one of the con-
stint evidences of tha success of the
fiscal policy which the people of Canada have wisely adopted and steadily
maintained at oue general election after an.ther. But for tho National
Policy, not only as regards manufactures, but also us regards railway construction, a Peterboro' foundry would
bo little likely thus to find a customer
in British Columbia. The inter-pro-
vitioial trade of Canada is steadily grow*
ing, to tho great advantage of its pep*
pie.—Empire,

Dr. G. M. Dawson, assistant director
of the geological survey of Canada, is at
the Driard. and will leave for Ottawa in
the course of a day or two. Dr, Dawsou has been engaged during tho greater
partof the year in examining the country in the neighborhood of Kamloops
for the purposo of securing data for a
geological map of that region. The
map will include a district eighty miles
square. In tho early part of the season
Dr. Dawson spent several weeks inthe
Kootenay lake region. The mines of
this distriot ho found to be remarkably
rich, and there oan be no question that
rapid progress in mineral developoment
will ensue. All that was needed at the
present time was convenient and cheap*
er transportation facilities for shipping
oro. Only the richest kind of ores can
now be sent out to the American smelters. Tho Northern Pacitic was pushing a line uorth to Bonner's Ferry, and
the Canadian Pacific, in order to secure
the trade, wonld be compelled to build
a spur southward from Revelstoke. A
smelter was being built at the latter
point, and when tho facilities necessary
to develop tho region were provided
there would be a large amount of ore
produced.—Friday's Colonist.
The Bangor News publishes a pointed paragraph. Here it is: One-third
of tho fools in the' country think they
can beat tho lawyer in expounding the
law. One-half think they can beat
the doctor healing the sick. Two-
thirds of them think they can beat
tho minister in preaching the gospel,
and all of them think think they can
best the editor in running a newspaper.

taitiing the blanket charter issued to
them, undor which they absolutely
control an immense and highly fruitful
region in South Africa, and tbey also
congratulate the government that the
powers granted the company have
fiilli-n intu such excellent hands. All
the papers are moved to ths prediction
thut ine exercise of tiie charter will
result in the establishment in South
Africa of a vast empire similar to tbat
of India, but nono of them seem anxious to call attention to ihe ambiguous
terms of the concession which virtually
empowered the company to exercise
control over a territory not heretofore
included in the countries in England's
possessions. The Pall Malt Gasette in
its nrticle on the subject says that
England and not Germany will colonise the territory, and just here the
difficulty of the company, and consequently of England, begins. So long
as the privileges of tho company are
moderately exercised there will be uo
trouble, but the moment the elasticity
of the charter is tested, a temptation to
which the charterers will be most like*
ly to yield, sooner or later, a protest
against the territorial encroachment
will be lodged and then England will
not find it prudent to ignore the company.     _^_^__^^^__

As the steamer Delaware was getting
ready to start for a trial trip from the
Vancouver Foundry wharf last night,
she very nearly pulled the whole struct*
ure away with her. It is said to have
happened in this way: Just as the signal for starting had been given the engineer turned on the steam and the
valve working rather stiffly, as is often
the case in n new vessel, opened to the
full, letting on so great a pressure of
steam to start with, that before the
ropes were well off she went like a shot,
breaking some pins and ropes and pulling out some of the piles, but fortunately doing no serious damage. Her trial
trip showed her to be a fine vessel, well
built and in every way a success, Her
engines will be after a little use all that
could be desired. As a river steamer
tho people of tbe Royal City, and her
owner, Oipt. Insley, have reason to be
proud cf the staunch new vessel.—

POLICE COUBT.
(Before Capt, Pittendrigh, J. p.)
John Bradley stood this morning in
tbe police court charged with larceny
of goods from the store of Ellard & Oo.
on Thursday night last. Mr. Moresby,
who prosecuted, asked thut if the evidence boro out the charge, thst the
prisoner be sent up for trial. Hii
ltonor said he certainly should.
Mr, Moresby deposed that on Friday he had recoived information that a
white man was trying. to sell some
dress goodi to the Indians in the
swamp. On going down to investigate
the matter he had met and accosted
prisoner, who was coming from tbe
swamp. Mr. Moreiby asked the prisoner where the cloth was whioh he hod
been offering for sale; the priioner
gave an evasive reply and told witneu
he could go and look for it, Witneu
had observed some fragments of rotten
wood on prisoner's coat and suspected
tbat the cloth might be hidden in some
stump. This surmise proved correct
and the cloth produoed in court wu
found in the centro of a rotten stump
in the swamp.
Chief of Police, sworn, said he hid
seen prisoner loitering around Ellard
<fcC<-.'_ store and acting in a manner
to excite suspicion. He wm walking
up and down in front of tbe store
looking intently at tho goods at tbo
door. A little later in the evening
Officer Carty informed him that some
goods hsd been stolen from Ellard -ft
Co. 's store. Witness had at once in*
structed his mou to arrest the man on
Bight. At this juncture Mr. Moresby
asked that tho information be amended
to read that the prisoner had beon
found with stolon goods in his posses*
sion, knowing them to be such.
Officer Carty, sworn, deposed that
Mr. Harvey hud informed him some
goods were missing from his store,
supposedly stolen. Witness bud
noticed a stranger tho same evening
going up Carnarvon street carrying a
heavy bundle under his arm. He arrested this stranger, the prisoner, at 1
a, m. on Friday on Columbia st.
0: Gordon, clerk in Ellard & Co.'a
store said he had noticed thn e pieces
of goods missing when taking in th<-se
at the door. He identified the piece
produced in court as ono of the ini-B*
ing pieces.
James Harvey, manager of Ellard &
Co.'s, also identified the piece uud
said that the value of tho goo Jt- stolen
amounted to about (00.
Mary Ellen Monterey wss sworn and
her father, the celebrated and only
Monterey, interpreted. She said the
prisoner had come to her resideuce in
the swamp and offered some drew
Hoods for Bale. He offered the lot for
$15. Witness offered him a dollar for
four yards which sho agreed to take,
but she "bucked out," being suspicious
that thn goods wore stolen property
Mary, another Indian woman, gavo
the same evidence.
The prisoner, who, was vory defiant
throughout the hearing of the case and
contemptuously declined Mr Moresby's offer to interpret for tho Indian
witnesses, asked if this wasn't a oourt
for, petty oases; hia honor toiormwi
him that it was, but the present Wai'
by no means a petty cau, and tent him
up for trial. Prisoner said he didn't
cure whether he was tried by the
Bpcedy trials process or went up for
trial at the assizes.
An amusing scene wss witnessed
when the threo female Indian witnesses were brought forward to bo
bound over to appear at the trial when
wanted. Mr. Monterey questioned
Mr, Moresby us to giving the witnesses
five days' warning, Mr. Moresby
quickly enlightened his darkened in*
tolled by saying, "Never mind about
the warning; you just tell thom what I
isy." The witnesses, although they
didn't understand a word of the harangue, laughed more loudly thun anybody in court, and Mr. Montorey
looked abashed.

Death has boon holding high cur-
nival in the land of late, nnd neither
youth, beauty nor honors are spared.
Westminster has been saddened by
two recent deaths of former well
known residents, and  now her citizens are called upon, without a moment's warning, to mourn tbe sudden outting oil* of one who lins gono
in and out amongst them for years
—one of her oldest pioneers, who
has oft sat in her councils nnd who
has been intimately identified with
all the earlier and later struggles of
tho oity sinco the inception of  its
municipal existence.   Mr.  Dickinson's exit from this sublunary sphere
last night was peculiarly sad, almost
tragic, in its suddenness and the cir
cumstances  surrounding  it.    Certainly, no one of his fellow-citizens
who was present at the meeting in
the Oddfellows' Hall last night, over
which Mr. Dickinson .presided with
his usual urbanity and cheerfulness,
had the remotest premonition that
the tumble Damocles' sword which
may be said to overhang every hu-
mau life wns to fall so soon und so
suddenly in Mr, Dickinson's case.
The frail tenure that poor mortals
have upon life is vividly illustrated
by tho sad occurrence. The deceased
gentleman had numerous virtues of
u public und private nature, and it
is not strange that be should number among bis friends nearly every
citizen of his adopted city and many
throughout  tho   province as well.
Mr. DiokiuBon's long'uud faithful
services for this city c-.nnot soon

Mmlni'ss  as n, private citizen, and

cooled by his advancing years, yet

the nanm of Davitt became a word
to charm with in the Emerald Isle,
and when the Land League was
formed he was the man who mainly
contributed to its popularity. The
new crusade against tyrany prospered, and the government cancelled
Davitt's ticket of leave. Eventually,
however, he was released nnd his

The enemies of-Ireland, much as
they hate and fear Davitt, have never
dared impeach his persounl honor.
He is to-day the ono man who carries with bim, ubove all others in the
cause of Ireland, us unyielding a
spirit as in the days of the Fenian
agitation. He has, however, learned
wisdom, and is convinced that Ireland's cause can only be served by
constitutional methods. Experience

him, what Seneca said of old, tbat

boris iis the village of Staid County,
'Mayc>,   forty-three years ago, and
when only four years of age was
evicted from his home, and with his
father and mother camo to England,
where the parents  had to beg their
bread in  the streets.   Eventually
the poor Davitts settled at Hasting-
den, in Lancashire, and the mother,
like many unother of  her ill-used
s*ace, never tired of telling her boy
with simple eloquence the story of
she cruel and memorable episodes of
Ids early years. Those words burned
into the Irish boy's heart, as anyone
who   has  heard Davitt speak can
testify.    When still a child ho was
set  to work at a mill, and it was
whilst at this place he lost his right
arm liy nn accident.   This seeming
calamity   proved   a   blessing,   for
young Davitt had to leave the mill
and work in a post office.   The postmaster was also a stationer, and the
Irish boy thus obtained a peep at
book-,  which  privilege he availed
himself  of.    And  so he grew to
youth, mixing with young and fiery
Irishmen.   One night he heard a
lecture  delivered by an unusually
eloquent tongue.   The moment of
slecision hnd como, and Davitt was
an   ardent  Nationalist  from that
hour.    Me  soon  became an active
member of the Fenian organization
and   took   port  in the attempted
seizure of Chester Castle.   "Unable
to carry a ride with hi3 single arm,
ho carried a small store of cartridges
in a bag madss from a pocket handkerchief."    Tho    attempt   proved
abortive, hut Davitt's restless young
blood would not allow him to keep
quiet, and on May 14, 1870, ho was
arrested in London, and on tlio information   of  an informer  named
Conydon was sentenced to IS yeara'
ponal servitude.   Thoso who havo
read liis book on what hn su Herod
whilst  in   gaol lisid it difficult to
realize that this man was undergoing
punishment at the hands of a Christian   government.   Whatever Davitt's crime may have been, at least
ho is the soul of truth, and never
lias   hi,   own record of  that time
been refuied   by his bitterest foes.
After seven' years and eight months
he wus released on ticket of leave,
together with three others, and was
received in Ireland with enthusiasm.
Within 18 hours of that release Ser-
geat McCarthy, one of  his follow
prisoners, died from   the effects of
hi, prison treatment.   Mr. Davitt
proceeded on a lecturing tour, first
through tbe United Kingdom and
then   in the States.    It is well to
remember that in tho early daya of
the revolutionary movement "a fundamental doctrine was that not only
wat constitutional agitation futile,
but so prejudicial that all truo Nationalist were bound to make war
against it."   Many of the leaders of
the Irish people had already seen
the folly of this course, and Davitt
WM of tho number.   Upon hia return to Ireland ho met with opposition from the extremist., who hated
the constitutional methods of Mr.
Parnell,    Politics,   became his   absorbing panion and he set him.olf

Tho indications are that the timo
is not far distant when the Indian
may become an important factor in
American politics, says an American
exchange. During tho last decade,
for tho lirst time in the history of
the country, the Indian population
has increased. The latest official
statistics fix their number at 262,-
620. The births have exceeded the
deaths by a considerable percentage.
Under the new policy recently adopted, all who give up tribal relations
and accept lund in severalty are
mado citizens and votors. It is estimated that those who fall within that category, and those who will
be added within the next two years
will add twenty thousand Indians
to the voting population by the
time of the next presidential election. If properly distributed, that
number wonld settle the business in
two or three pivotal states and decide tho election.
Tsvcnty years ago there roamed
over the plains nnd mountains of tho
far West nearly 18,000,000 buffaloes.
To-day thero are less than 500 head

about 200 under the protection of
the government in Yollowstono

about 550, head in our North-west.
Of the eighty-five herd of wild buf
faloes which are known to exist,

Oolroado, twenty-six in Wyoming,
ten in Montana and four in Dakota.

com so, whoa I tay fiends, 1 do not mean
any thing peculiarly demoniac or suggestive

laudanum, and drink it la quarter ouuee,

iteon palates and tender stomachs, can not
take laudanum, and use Instead paregoric.
Tliis ancient midwife's favorite is simply
a. sweet preparation, of opium flavored chiefly with ; anlseseed aud
tastes somewhat like' tbo anisette or
kummol used in French and German restaurants. Still others of the samo sort uso

put upon the market for the apparent benefit but the eventual ruin of babies, and
whioh aro so heavily spiced and flavored
as to suggest French mixed candies rather
than any medicine, Outside of these are
tho peoplo wbo use Dover's powders and
morphine pills. Both of these, and especially the latter, act rapidly and are very
popular with opium fiends wbo wake up in
the early morning with large and painful

ject. of pity. Tbe habit seems more a

WftQH AT VENICE.
IhlOH-tlug ItemlnlBeenans of the Antlio.
of Don Juan and Tom Mot,/-,
The scene ty Venice, tho tunc lhc foro-
noon of mi enfly autumn dny in ISH', nnd
the light sou-fog which has drilled in from
the lagoons lies gently on tho oily b wlr.8 of
thn (-aiials, and throws a golden vail over
the earvori fronts of the marble pahicos,
which lino the sides of the Grand rannl.
Under the Iniiucncoof the miBt, permeated
by tho rays of Lho morning sun, which hud
risen in a cloudless sky, Venice seemed
liitc to that fabled golden city of the Incus,
tho lode star which drew many a bravo
gentleman to ultimate death and destruction. Carelessly reclining on a plto of
cushions iu a large, well-appointed gondola,
which wus gliding quickly down lite Graud
-.'ininl, was a young man of singular np*
pcni'tinco,
Sitting opposito to him, writes Horace
Townsend iu Ouoe a Week, was a plump,
dapper little inan, commonplace lu feature,
but .i-osboiUh llio height of the prevalent
fashion. Ho sat stiffly in hfs seat, occasionally glancing at his companion as
thoush longing for him to Bpoak, und yet
not daring himself to begin tho convoi'flu-
tiou.
At length, when tho gondola had left lho
can nl, and was cleaving the blue waters of
tho lagoon In its path toward tho Lido, a
low, lou g Island which, tho sun having hy
thistiiuo dispersed ttie morning mist, waa
visible at no groat distance.
Sir. Monro, for this was his namo, could
not longer restrain himself und burst into
a rhapsody ovor tbo beauty of tho scene.
His -.-Sorts lo nrouso his companion wero
not wildly flut'uosBful, Lord By rati-for ho
it wits whom tho minor poet addressed—
merely turning ovor with nn ungracious
movement and snarling out: "Don't bo u
fool, Tommy. Keep your poetry for women's album!*, and talk common sense, if you
can."
Bo far from offending tho littlo man, this
snub had the effect Lord Byron desired,
and during the remainder of tho voyngu
across tho lugoon Mr. Mooro chatted tiiVriy
to his noblo companion, displaying not it l.t-
tle shrewdness and wit In his chatter,
which dealt principally with the current
Loudon scandals of the day.
When the Lido was reached and tho two
men had landed they found awaiting them
ou tho strip of sandy beach a couplo of thoroughbred Arabian horses, In chargo of nn
Italian groom.
It wus in fact for his dally ride that Byron
visited this spot, for hore ho kopt his small
hut well selected stablo of saddle-horses.
For tho first time that day, when ho
caught sight of tho beautiful animals snuffing fn the sea-breezes through tholr delicate nostrils, his faco softened, and he caressed their velvoty muzzles with ull tho
tenderness of a lover smoothing hfs mistress' hair.
"Aron't tbey beauties, Tommy 1" he Bald.
"They havo tho,ehdurance of steel, nnd tho
speed of thought ln thoir limbs. Wliich,
bytho'way," he addod,laughing, '-would
mako a good line fn ii poom, would it uotl"
Boon tbo two friends were m.muled and
galloping along tho hard sands, Byron a
trlfioahond of Mooro, who Buontfld to huvo
not a littlo difficulty in tho mftiiuffflirio.it. of
his steed. Suddenly Byron heard a cry of
alarm, ond tho next instant tho little irishman's horso shot past, wltb tlio rider clinging for dear lifo to his nock. The hur_-- had
taken the bit in hts tcethand had fairly run
away. The sight seemed to tickle flrron
immensely, and bo fell into a fit of laughter
so immoderate that ho with difficulty kepi
control of hfs own steed. Finally hu guvo
ohusoto his friend, wbo was now a mere

twenty minutes' hard ride had come
abreast of him. Tho runaway wn-. soon ss,

Bomo hours later Byron tnd Mooro were
sitting in a largo room in the Palazzo Mo-
cenigo. whilo on the tabid beforo tin. m lay
tho remains of a frugal meal.
"A few grapes and a little claret and water aro all I cure for," Byrou had said, when
tbey returned from their trip io tho Lido,
somewhat to tho disgust of Mooro, who,
still soro from his jolting, wus yet not a littlo hungry, aud who would huvo preferred
something more substantial. ■

FEMALE SNUFF-DIPPERS,
Southern Women Who Use Tobacco In a

A popular vlco among tho ludios of this
part of tho State Is tbo use. of tobacco,
writes an Oiark (Ark.) correspondent of
the Omaha Boo. Somo will chew it liko
veterans, whilo others aro content to
smoko. But by far tbo most common way
of deriving enjoyment from Its uso is to
tako it In the form of snuff. When a number of women got togothor tho snuff-box
Is nearly always produced, with tho instruction to "tako a dip" as it goes
urouud tho circle. Thon tboy will sit and
gossip, interrupting tho flow of conversation with frequent expectorations into a

Edwnrtl E, Phelps, M. D.,,L. h, D., ot Dartmouth college. Ho was n tlrong, able
man, who -t?od high In the literary nnd

known, but It is, nevertheless, the truth,
that Prof. Phelps was tbo discoverer of
what is known lo the median] profession
and chemists universally as Palne's.
Celery Compound, unquestionably one of*
1 ho most vtiiuuble discoveries of this century. This remarkable compound Is not
ii nervine, an essence, a Hnrstiparilla or
tiny devised article, but a discovery, and It
ninths u distinct step In medical practico
nnd tho treatment of norvous complication. It bus lieeii freely admitted by the
IicrI incdicnl lalentln the land, and also
by the leading chemists nnd hcIchIIkIs,
that for nervo troubles, nervous exhaus-
tion.fnsoniiilii, debility, senility and even
the dreaded mid terrible PurcsiSi nothing
lins ever been discovered which reaches
(tin disorder nm] restore™ health equal to
this discovery of Prof. Phelps.
Palne's Celery Compound Is now being
prepared in quantities, and ean be procured at nny reputable druggist. An attractive bunch of celery Is to be found on
every wrapper. It hns becomo specially
popular among professional men, mind
workers, ittdles burdened with exciting

was made. This class it Is said will he
a very drawing card with tho Y. M. 0. A.
this winter, aud last night's attendance*
warranted tho assertion. Mr, Duncan

Music, Art uml llie IM-uina.
The city 'is being profusoly "billed"
for three sterling entertainments.
Music, the drama, art and literature
are represented by three masters in
thoso departments. Liborali, Now
York's famous Italian orchestra conductor; McKee-Rankiu, whose name
ia a household word iu the States, and
Frederick Villier.-, who in known
throughout the civilized world m his
own peouliar lino. So, Westminster-
ites aro going to have their pick of
choice game, aud the winter Beason
never opened under such auspicious
circumstances as the preseut docs.
Tho enterprise of somo private citizens
haa induced tho appearance of one of
thoso artist a, and thoy are to bo commended for catering with such good
laste for tha people's amusement, and
deserve ta succeed in their venture.
Skeena Klver FUliery ittgulafious.
Mr. Tins, Slowat, inspector of fish-
ories, informs us that the following
regulations have just been forwarded to
his rifflee by the minister of fisheries,
Ottawa, affecting tho Skeenu River
fisheries: Next year tlio fishing Heason
will open on June 16th, and cloao on
the 30th October, and during the close
sooaoiilishing for local consumption
only will he allowed, These regulations will bo embodied in tho licenses
to be granted next yenr, Tho number
of licenses allowed for tho Skeena has
beon limited to 300, which will be divided among the packing establishments and-tho independent fishermen,
The Indians aro not to bo exempted
from paying liceuso foes, for which ox
emptiou they petitioned. Thoy nre
given tho privilege, howovor, of catching all the fish they require for their
own consumption all tho year round,
with drift nets, which is a concctssion
from previous regulations, limiting
them to aboriginal appliances in catching tish during thu closo season. Tho
new regulations go into forco on the
1st of January.
Fra .rr Salmon In Sew Yorft.
E. H. (Iaminaus, commission merchant, Fulton Market, New York, has
ordered a quantity of fresh salmon
fiom Mr. W. H. Vianen, as a samplo
order, and if it gives satisfaction and
tho rates aro not too high ho promises
to buy steadily throughout the winter.
Mr. Gamnians also offers to take 100
dozen ducks, geese and grouse daily
from Mr. Vianon, providing the pricea
nro uot exorbitant, and for which be
will pay cash. This will givo an idea
ef the imiiic-n.su business that may ho
done iu British Columbia fiih and
game with faraway New Voi-k. Twelvo
bundled birds daily is a large order,
and would be difficult to supply at
present, but with gamo so very plentiful there is no reason why theso shipments cannot bo secured. The small
local demand has kopt down prices,
and consequently there has been no
object to hunters to kill a largo number of game, but with a largo foreign
demand the caso will bo different, and
it isprobabletherewlll.be no trouble
in securing the desired quantity should
the contract be closed.

ROBERT DICKINSON DEAD.
Our Worthy Kx-SIoyor Dies Bntlilonly' at
Ills _tcijlflciic« of Henri Dliiras-?.
The whole city was Startled last night
about 0:30 o'clock by the iwiiV™ that
ex-mayor Dickinson had died suddenly
at his residence on Armstrong Etrcet.
So sudden aud unexpected was tho sad
event that peoplo could not realize tho
truth of the report, uud very many left
their home.i aud called at the ufllictcd
houso to verify for IhoniEelvct tho sorrowful tidings. Although the hour
was late, tho news spread from ono end
of thu city to tho other in tin incredibly
short space of time, and by midnight
few peoplo weru unaware of tho sad
event. Particularly to those who attended tho political meeting last night
at tho Oddfellows'Hall did the news
como like a thunderclap. Mr. Dickinson presided at tho meeting and spoke
with his old-time vigor, and seemed in
tho very bust of spirits. Together with
Mr. T. J. Trapp he walked up Columbia street and when they parted at lho
corner of Clement street he spoko as
cheerfully as usual, bidding his companion a hearty ''ijood night." Mr.
Trapp noticed, however, that Mr.
Dickinson appeared to gasp for breath
now and again, which ho wondered at
aa they walked very slowly, but tho
deceased did net complain of any pain
or illno.a. When he reached home and
entered the houao ho throw off hut cont,
complained of shortness of breath uud
aaked that tho windows bo opened,
which was done, Hu then walked
iibmit the room in an uneasy manner,
gasping for breath at intervals and a
few moments later ho asked Mi.... Dickinson for a drink of water, and told lier
to run up stairs,and get a lozenge. In
tho meantime Melvtn Dickinson had
beon dispatched for Dr. Do Wolf
Smith. On Miss Dickinson's return
to tho room Mr. Dickinson was in hia
accustomed arm chair, nnd as she np-
pronohed ho said: "I am dying,"and
full buck. These woro tho laat words
he aaid. TEioroui*hly alarmed tho
young lady rushed Irom tho houso and
callod for holp, Mr, Georgo Warwick,
who happened to be on his way homo,
heard the cries and run to tho house,
whero ho fouud the deceased lying in
the chair, gasping slightly and hia beard
flecked with foam. Hastily wiping the
flecks from tho dying man's beard, Mr,
Warwick supported him m hia arms.
Twice Mr. Dickinson moved his lips
ns if attempting to speak, und a fow
momenta la tor passed peacefully away,
apparently dying a paiiilt-as death. All
thia took placo within eight minutes of
tho time the deceased rouchod homo,
Dr. Do Wolf Smith arrived a fow minutes later and after nn examination announced that death had been caused
by heart failure. Dr. Fagan, who
reached the house 11 few minutes afterwards, concurred in Dr. Smith's
opinion.
Tho members of the deceased's
family, and relatives, were hastily
mado aware of tho terriblo event, and
in a fow minutes the houao that an
hour before had been full of happiness
and penco was uow grief stricken beyond description, Mr. 0. E, Woods
left for Vancouver tit 11:30 to hroak
tho aorrowful news to Mrs. Dickinson
and Mias Flossie, who wore visiting
there. Tho shock waa a terrible one
to both, and almost too great to
bear. Mrs. and Miss Dickinson accompanied Mr. Woods btck to West-
minuter, arriving homo at 4 a. tn,
Tlie deceased gentleman leaves a
wifo and seven children to mourn his
loss, and who have tho haartfolt sympathy of the whole community in their
great sorrow, Ho was a loving and
indulgent husband aud father, and
was simply adored by his family. As
a citizen ho was respected and beloved
by ovory person in tho community,
and hia death at the early age of 53 is
a blow that tho city will long regret.
Mr. Dickinson waa ono of our
earliest pioneers, and hia biography is
closely identified with tiio municipal
history of tho royal city. A native of
Liverpool, England, Mr. Dickinson arrived at tho thon just budding city of
New Westminster in 1850. His mat*
riage to Miss Harris occurred Bhottly
afterwards. Mr. Dickinson haa been
a citizen of this city without Intermission for the last thirty years, and for
moat of that period haa been on<*aged
successfully iu the butchering business.
The lirat municipal council mot iu
1800, aud in 1801 Mr. Dickinson was
olected a councillor nud again in 1802.
In 1803 ho waa ngain elected councillor and chosen ua president of thu
oouncil, which oflico ho filled for that
year. Ho wub elected and Bcrvod aa a
member of lhe council thereafter for the
yeara 1804,1867, 1800, 1872 and 1873.
hi January of 1874 Mr. Dickinson was
elected ninyor of Westminster, boing
thu second mayor of tho city. Iu
December of 1874 he wns elected to
represent the oity in tho legislative assembly of the province, and served Ior
one term. Subsequently Mr. Dickinson was honored with tho mayoralty
of the city and filled that offico acceptably for the years 1874, 1880,
1881, 1883, and for tho fivo following
years consecutively, until tho election
laat January of Mr. John Hendry ns
mayor. For ovor a quarter of a century Mr. Dickinson has heen a juatica
of the peace for thia city. Ho waa
also connected with the Now Westminster Rifles from 1805 ta 1800, ill the
capacity of ensign, retiring retiming
rank. In addition to lu's ardttrua services in connection with the city council, Air, Dickinson has beon a member
of the board of trade since ita organization, and a member of the council of
that board for some time. Tho do*
coasod has boen for many yeara a
member of Holy Trinity church m this,
oity and haa taken au active interest
in its work. He was also a member
at the time of his death of tho Ancient
Order of United Workmen, whioh association will probably bo repreaetited
at the funeral.
The funeral will tike place ou Monday, Nov. 4th, leaving the family residence at 2 p. in., thenco to Holy Trinity church, and from there to tho Anglican burying ground at Sapperton.
The oity council, wo have authority
for stating, will attend tho funeral in
a body, which is an eminently fitting
token of respect ta the memory of the
late Robert Dickinson.
Military Band Concert..
The lirat of a proposed sorits of four
concerts by Signor Libera ti and his
military band and vocal chorus, was
given nt tho Star Theatre last evoning.
The introduction of several vocal features adds greatly to tho pleasure of
Ihutmtortainmciits, whilo tho supborb
playing of the cornet soloists could not
bo excelled. Signor Liborati's band
deservedly'.enjoys the reputation of being oue of the linest aggrcgationa of
musical talent in the country, and the
enthusiastic manner in whicli tho Star
audionco rereii-ud tho members ou
last night's programme, proves that
Buffalo thoroughly understands and
appreciate the organization. Thoso
who enjoy a raro musical (rent should
uot miss these concerts.—-Times Republic (Buffdo).
The (.i.:-. hit- Lecturer.
Last infill Mr. Frederic Villiers,
tho artist of the London 67j-o^/tic, who
followed, or rather accompanied, the
tirmitsof Uussia aud Britain in somo
of thu most exciting of recent campaigns, lectured iu the Pavilion to a
largo audience, wliich caught tho inspiration of his thrilling experiences.
* * * "War on a White Sheot" ia
a lecture unique and altogether pluas-
ing. The Bang frohl shown by tlio
artist, the cool, uuimpassionod manner
with which ho recounted hair-breadth
eacapea and stirring episodes, made all
the more impression on his beams.
His pen pictures were btrong and instinct with the atmosphere of tho tinted field or battle's crash, and his word
paintings, depicting tho trials ond
triumphs, uotrnwa and brightness of
tho soldier's life, were scarcely less
vi.id.~-Toronto Globe.

W. B, TOWNSKND,
Mayor.
Holds tite City Hrnp-m-tlblr.
It does not need very much examination of the premises to lind out that
tho proprietor of the Caledonia hotel,
oornor of Front streot and Lytton
square, has excellent grounds for complaint against the city, for tho manner
in which he has been treated by tho
board of worka. Tho rubbish thrown
aaido when that famous up-hill flume
waa constructed was scattered wtth
beautiful promiseuousn.Ba all over that
part of tho square, and tho Caledonia
hotel came in for a liberal supply of
tho debris When tho work was com
pletcd—that is, what tho managers of
the work cilled completed—tho place
was left in a most disgraceful mesa!
There was a natural channel hol'ltJWG'iji
hy the passage of surfaco water from
Columbia streot aud formerly this
water used to flow past the hotel in
ita own channel, but since the manufacture of that mmiLimeiit.il piece of
flumery, it uow gracefully meanders
undor tho doors ol tho hotel and floods
the premises. Tho rivulet is very
much diverted, but the inhabitants of
the hotel are by no means so. Mr.
Mcintosh, the proprietor, will notify
tho oouncil thut he holds ihe ctty responsible for the damn-'U done to the
Caledonia hotel thmui-h this meana.
Tho council was notified of tho nuisance some lime ago, but no action was
taken,      . 	
Manager Shaughneaay, of the Canadian Pacific Railway, in speaking, at
Montreal, of the reported withdrawal
of the China and Japan Etaam. rs, said
the Canadian Pacific Railwny had recoived no such notification as allegud,
It was probablo there would bu a
chungo iu the way iu which the atenm-
ors were run. Heretofore they had
been ruu by outside parties, tho earnings being divided between tho owneis
of the vessels and the railway company.
Ilo conld not say, howover, what the
now arrangement*- wore and when they
would come into forco. While in England ho contracted for threo steamers,
