Mathew P. Dodge, of the Oregon federal circuit nnd district court, beforo
whom tho famous Sharon-Hill case was

forgery, and Judge Sawyer wrote concurring in tho opinion. Being interviewed by a reporter, Judge Dodge
said; "I came east aa a delegate to ;
the Episcopal convention in New York, j
Yes, I sat in tho Sharon-Hill case. The 1
fact is that tho woman was merely his
in inl res.-. He gavo her $500 a month,
furnished magnificent quaiters and
spent iii'-noy ..>n her lavishly. Her
influence on Judgo Terry was undoubtedly bad. She urged him to ace beyond ovon his own inclination. In
November she will be tried by me for
resisting tho authorities, It ia very
likely ahe may at some favorable opportunity attempt the lives of Judge
Field, Judgo Sawyer and myself. I
predict she will die a violent  death."

Everything iudicatoa that the Behring Sea and Atlantic fisheries questions, aa recently foreshadowed, will be

forte admitted as much to a New York
Herald reporter. The Canadian government haa despatched an official to

Tbe AmblilouBCIIr.
The Weekly Victorian, drawing comparisons betweon tho cities of the province, says: "On tho other hand,
there is no mo-is on the back of New
Westminster. It should be called the
"ambitioua city," for her citizens must
be alivo nnd progressive men. Loan
bylaws, having for their object the
welfare of lhe ciiy, are never "sat upon" there, but aro carried by rousing
majorities. Conclusive proof of this
is shown by tho late vote upon the law
authorising the city to bonus the New
Westminster railway to the extent of
$150,0(0. Verily, there are no flies
on the royal city, and wealth and prosperity will be her reward."
We undeutand that negotiations
have botiii completed by Mr. S. M.
Rubins and Mr. L. Hosenfeld on bo-
half of the New Vancouver Coal-Coro-
pnny, f..r the bunding and purchase
of the extensive coal lauds in Cedar

Hi itli 11 secured a bonding right theroon,

Vancouver Coal Company is to be congratulated on tlie succosful acquisition
of thia valuable coal property. Among
those who have bonded their land are

My ster Ion il)* Disappeared.
It is supposed that another mysterious disappearance haa just taken place.
On Saturday last Phillip Hermon,
about 45 yeara of age, robust and apparently in hia full senses, quit his
work at F. W. Hart's faotory, and
nothing has been seen of him aince.
Hermon usrd to be employed as a
cabinet limner, nud iB accounted a good
workman. It has to bo added, that,
judging from nil accounts, Hermon
was occasionally apt to get under tho
influence of liquor. Since Saturday
nothing has been seen of "Phil," as he
is familiarly called. For some time
past he has ho has been boarding at
the Greyhound, the proprietor of
which gives him a good record. He
was an Englishman, but might now bo
termed n British Columbian, having
been in the country for 25 years. He
waa unmarried. On Saturday it seems
he complained to tho factory foreman
of feeling eick, butit was not thought
that anything serious was the matter.
His friends do not entertain any great
fears for hia safety aa yet, out atill
cannot help wondering what has become of him.— fTorft™
peace, weights which is their duo in
tho council of nations. Measures will
be presented by the government
emending the military laws of May 2nd,
1874. It will provide for a fresh distribution of the army, etc., aud is intended to readjust existing irregularities of organization whieh have arisen
through the strengthening oftho army
and the displacement of troops from
time to time. From this cause and
tbe corresponding expansion of the
naval fower arise additional expenditure set forth in the budget. The
financial statement to be presented,
compared with thoae of the current
financial year, will he largely increased. A new Socialist bill and new
banking bill will aho be introduced.
The speech recounts the late events in
east Africa, and says that the Zanzibar sultan has issued decrees promising tbe abolition of slavery. To relieve the foreign office of a great and
increasing mats of work, a colonial department will be created. The hopes
expressed by the emperor on November 22nd, 1888, that peace would be
sustained have not only been realized
but have been strengthened as regards the future, owing to the personal election which the emperor haa
since cultivated with tho rulers of
friendly and allied powers, thereby
helping to strengthen the confidence
felt abroad. The honest love of peace
animating the policy of Germany
justify the belief that the peace of
Europe, based on ©listing treaties-
will, God helping, be maintained in
1889.
IDLE TALK,
Paris, Oct. 22.—The French newi-
papers have started an absurd romanco
about the serious difficulties whioh always bave arisen between the Empress
Frederick and Prince Biimarek, in
conwquauce ol the ohanoellot having
interfered to prevent the betrothal of
Princess Margaret of Prussia, to Prince
Christian of Denmark, which the empress is very desirous of bringing
about. The real fact ii that Prince
Bismarck has no sort of objection to
the projected marriage, and that he is
sorry that he wished Princess Margaret to marry Prince William of Nassau
is absolute nonsense. The alliance
between the heir of the throne of
Denmark and the sister of the German Emperor was so distasteful to her
that it led to such a furious protest
from the Duke of Cumberland that
the idea was abandoned.
NOTED SURGEON DEAD,
Paris, Oct. 22.—Dr. Phillip Ricord,

Senator James Turner died Sunday
night at Hamilton, Oat. The de-
ceiuu'd senator wr.i one of the most en-
torprising business men in the Dominion. He was a Scotchman, born

The deceased emigrated to Canada
when 22 years of age, and two years
afterwards he married Miss Carolino
Huldah Greene, of Kingston, Out.
Settling in Hamilton, the young
Scotchman's progress in business was
rapid. His extraordinary physical
energy was felt in whatever he was engaged. At the time of hiB death he

Turner & Co., of Hamilton, and senior partner in Turner, Rose & Co.,
Montreal, and Turner, MacKeand &
Co., Winnipeg. He was one of the
first of the Canadian merchants to push
business in Manitoba and the Northwest, laying the foundation for an extensive trade in those parti of the
country during a visit he made to the
Northwest with Hon. Joseph Howe in
1869. He was enthusiastic in tho expression of hii faith in the greatness
of the Northwest. He was at various
times president or director of the
Hamilton & Lake Erie Railway Co..
the Wellington, Grey & Bruce Railway Co., the Northern and Pacific
Junction Railway Co. and the Northern and Northwestern Railway Co.
His removal leaves vacant the vice-
presidency of the Baqk of Hamilton,
also his seat in the senate of Canada,
to which he was called in 1681, He
will be sadly missed in the business
circles of Hamilton.

AN IMPORTANT OBDEfc
-Ivln-c lhe c. P. B. a Monopoly of ibe
Transcontinental Trade lo British Colnmbla.
The agent of tho O. R. & N. Co.'a
steamships in this oity has received the
following notice from the collector of
customs at this port:
"When goods are transported in
bond over United States railways in
transit from a Canadian port, and destined to another Oanadian poit in Britiih Columbia, but intended to be transshipped at a United States port on tho
coast of the Pacific ocean, and to be
carried thonce by a vessel to their destination, such carrying may ho permitted to be deno by any vessel having a Canadian register, or being a
registered vessel of Great Britain and
Ireland, or of any foreign vessel which
has acquired tho right to the coasting
trade of Canada, but by nono others."
This order will completely change
the existing form of thinga regarding
the present carrying trado of Canadian
bonded goods from const pors in the
Unitod Statea to British Columbia
ports, and will necessitate tlio establishment of a line cf Britisli bottoms
to replace tho A ■■c.---iu veiaela now
er.gng-i'l in the tra .e. Ab there is no
reciprocal coasting trado ezi itpg between Great Brit-in and thi United
States, United States .esse'.* cannot
be allowod iu any mainor t > participate in this trade. Tho bu k of the
buainosfl done by tho hnca of steamers
plying between the Sound • orts aud
tho ports of Victoria, Vanco iv_r and
New WcBtmiuBter is in C-inadi in bonded goods, and whon this trade is
placed beyond thsir scopa a n •• w order
cf thinga muat coma into existence.
Tho now order is certain to n- cear-itate
some radical changes in tho ri nning of
the regular passenger and frol.'ht lines,
and it will probably have the effect of
sweeping away somo of the long ectab*.
li-jhed U„it-.*d States lines. The worst
f-ratur-? of tho order ia that it practicably gives the O. ?. R. a monopoly of
the transcouti'icntul trade to British
Columbia, and sturdy protests ngninst
such action is sure to follow. If the
order is maintained, tho only hope of
the province to relieve it of the monopoly will be in the Southern Railway,
whioh i™ thii wny nlono will prove a
boon far more valuable Ji*m the prico
paid for it.

failj.1 British Columbian
TucHday Evening, Oct. 23, 1880.
The virus evidently mado a mis*
take wIil'ii they brought us tho paragraph about thu "collapse" of the
proposed fast Atlantic service which
we printed last night, That paragraph was not intended fur Oanadian
oyes, Wo all know that the backing (int of the Andersons means
only n littlo delay. Possibly it may
be a move towards an increase in
the subsidy promised, or possibly it
may be that certain other powerful
corporations, who wish to keep this
service in their own hands, have
crowded the Andersons off tho
course. With tho C. P. R. fast line
from Hong Kong to Halifax, it is
not likely that such an nnti climax
as the 10-day old style boats on the
Atlantic would long be tolerated.
No. Tlie San Francisco Examiner
probably knows all this just os well
ns we do, but it was glad of a chance
to cheer the spirits of its readers,
which are a trifle low in regard to
this matter. Their own policy of
protection makes it impossible for
the Americans to build ships, und
the Britisli policy of subsidy makes
it impossible for any ships they may
have to command a profitable trade.
Smnll wonder if they groan ns they
sen one of the few remaining American lines about to be swallowed by
the Kanucks. Small wonder if
thoy soiiie upon any rumor which
can at lord them a scrap of hopo that
tho dreaded   rival has "collapsed."
The park committee have added
to their report certain recommendations worthy the attention nnd, we
believe, the adoption of the council
and tlio ratepayers. Tho details
wili be found elsewhere, in the report of last night's council proceedings. The gist of the recommendations is that the sum of $16,000
should be borrowed, a by-law to be
introduced for that purpose, to be
expended in enlarging the exhibition buildings and stock sheds, improving and enlarging the athletic
grounds, erecting a permanent fonce
around tho grounds and buildings,
etc. All these will be permanent
and most valuable improvements,
and the proposition will meet, we
believe, with the practically unanimous approval of the ratepayers.
Aid. Keory, as will be seen by the
council repot t, made ■*. suggestion
that $3,000 should be added to the
amount of the proposed by-law for
the purpose of improving the public
(jronnda known as the crescent,
That these grounds sadly need im-
provpr-ienfc, and bave been in tbat
prifiirinn for a long time, _o_3 not
reqi-ir^ xrgnment. The grounds,
whi--.li nave great natural beauty of
sitn-.ti.'.r: and form, and are suscep-
toify.-. ot being made in the highest
tlegyse ornamental and attractive,
are it present disfigured by stumps
ait.*} other natural roughnesses which
make: it the extreme of sarcasm to
denominate'the grounds in question
—what they nre de-iigned for—"public giu'dens," or "pleasure "-rounds.'"
Two thousand dollars, it is true,
would nor- make the crescent the
'■thing of beauty, und tho joy forever*' (link it is capable of bf-ing,
and destined to be, made, but a very
desi ruble "and satisfactory beginning
coiii'' bn made with that sum, and
the reproach somewhat lifted from
the loyal .: ity for ul lowing publio
grounds with such capacities and
possibilities for pleasure and orna-
men' a.; thn crescent possesses to
Juxu'iafcoso long in their pristine
ugliness. Tho park committee wisely
recommended, and the council adopted the recommendation, that a publio meeting should bo hold on Thursday night n".vf, to discuss those important und eminently popular ijues-
tjptii*. Thero is no doubt that the
meeting will he largely attended, as
the utmoi't intorest i;: folt. by everyone in the t'tihirgoment and improvement of out* exhibition buildings
and grounds and athletic and plea-
sum grounds. The local advantages nnd the enhanced prestigo
abroad accruing tu this eiry from
the very creditable achievements in
the direction's above made during
. the present season are too plainly
apparent to all to require pointing
out, und it is safe ti say that the
ratepayers and ihu citizens generally
so appreciate Lhe substantial benefits flowing from such improvements,
permanent in their nature, and enhancing so largely the beauty, attractiveness and fair famo of the
oity, that they will bo found eager
to carry on the good work so auspiciously and energetically begun.
In view of the provincial exhibition
being held in this city again next
year, and of the certainty of its being on a much larger scale and far
more successful in every respect
than the one held this fall, the
necessity of the improvements proposed by the park committee
being promptly undertaken and
thoroughly oarried out becomes even
urgent, and this, we predict, will be
the view taken by the majority of
our oitizens when1* the ' question
comes before them. Tho only point
on whieh we feel compelled to express a difference with the park
committee's recommendations is with
fespoct to tho proposed enlargement
of tho oxhibition buildings. Tho
park committee have recommended
the addition of another wing. We
would suggest thatj while additions
aro being, mado, the two wings
necessary to complete the building
should bo constructed. Our experience this fall demonstrated the fact
ehat, had the weather heen favor-
able.the inside accommodation would
have been found considerably too
small. Next year wo can have
just as large an exhibition as wo desire, and take the trouble and ex
pense to prepare for, and it will pay
us well to prepare on tho largest
possible scale. Let us havo no half
measures in this exhibition businoss,
but go in to win. The royal city
can make a great mark in tho exhibition line, and overy citizen should
take a personal interest, and make
some personal sacrifice, if need bo,
towards this end.
The department of state at Washington received some time since
from tho legation at Pekin, Ohina,
under date of July 'A, an account of
tlie death and extraordinary life-
work of tho ltev. J. Orosset, an independent American missionary in
China. Ho died on tho steamer El
Dorado, en routo from Shanghai to
Tientsin, in Juno last, leaving a
widow at Schuylersville, N. Y. In
speaking of Mr. Orossett, Minister
Denby couples his name with that
of Fathor Darnien, and says: Mr.
Crossett's life was devoted to doing
good to the poorest classes of Chinese. He had charge of a winter
refuge for the poor at Pekin during
several winters. He would go out
in the streets in the coldest nights,
pick up destitute beggars and convey them to the refuge, where he
provided them with food. He also
buried thom at his own expense.
He visited all the prisons, and often
procured tho privilege of removing
the sick to his refuge. The officials
had implicit confidence in him, and
allowed him to visit at pleasure all
tho prisons and charitable institutions. He was known to the Chinese as the ".Christian Buddha."
He was attached to no organization
of men. He was a missionary pure
and simple, devoted rather to charity
than to proselytism. Ho literally
took Christ as his exemplar. He
travelled all over China aud the
east. He took no caro for his ex
pensos. Food and lodging were
voluntarily furnished him, innkeepers would tako no pay from him,
and private persons wore glad to
entertain him. It must he said
that his wants wero few. He wore
the Chinese dress, had no regular
meals, drank only water, and lived
on fruit with a little rice or millet.
He aimed at translating his ideal
Christ into reality. Ho wore long
auburn hair, parted in tho middle,
so as to resemble the pictures of
Christ, Charitable people furnished
him money for his refuge, and he
never seemed to want for funds. He
E'.ept on a hoard on tbe floor. Even
in Ids last hours, being a deck pas-
se"'-er on the El Dorado, he refused
t j le transferred to the cabin, but
the Kindly captain, some hours be-
fore his death, removed him to a
berth.  ______
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Theoriginal of "Little Lord Faunt-
leroy" is Mrs. Burnett's youngest
son. Her eldest boy is said to bo
meaner than livo boys iu his neighborhood. His mamma has never,
written him up.—Ex.
In Russia, no young girl is admitted to the telegraph servico, except on condition that sho will
marry nono but a telegraph clerk,
and when her husband falls ill, she
has to take his place in the oilice
and do doublo service. A movement
is now being mado to get this law
repealed so that the female operators
may marry anyono they please.
Ono of tlie wonders displayed at
the Pans exposition was an artilical
silk. A French chemist having analyzed the gummy substanoe exuded
by tho silkworm, produced its counterpart by artificial meansand by ingenious appliances put it thr-us-h so vor.il
proceses until ho produced a substance whioh only experts can distinguish from natural silk. The
goods manufactured from it excels
the natural silk in brilliancy of color,
has an equally line luster, will wear
nearly us woll, and can bo produced
more cheaply.
It is said that the United States
is destined to become a nation of
blondes. Tho population of Jf or wny
shows a percentage of 90.25 of light
eyes. Flaxen hair appears in 57.5
per cent, whilo absolutely black
hair is found in the ratio of two per
cent. The immigration from Sean-
diuvian countr.es in 1889 numbered
80,000, or about one-sixth of the entire immigration that year. The
im migration from Germany is also
very largely made up of pure blondes,
while that from the British isles and
otber European countries is very
mixed, with blondes still inthe lend.
Well, blondes "ain't bad."
Mark Twain lives an idle, easygoing sorb of existence during nino
months of the year. Unlike most
authors, he works in summer and
rests all the remainder of the year.
His home at Hartford, Conn., is a
handsome red brick Queen Anne
villa, the principal attraction of
which is a large library on the first
floor. Here Mark Twain may bn
found any day during his loafing season, sitting in a comfortable arm
chair, with his feet on the window
sill, partly hid by a oloud of tobacco
smoke. Mrs. Clemens is u sweet,
lovely, refined woman, buta serious
drawback to her husband's happiness
is the fact that she cannot appreciate
his jokes,

half percent,, and thoro is but littlo room
loft to a considerable percentage of physicians to gain tho baro necessities of lifo."
"Doos not medicine afford us many
chances for lucrative succos3 now ns for-

the conversation.

tho diploma would bo far more vnluablo

'    AN  UNKNOWN  NATION,
How tlio AQalif- Of tlio tnilian Tcniloi-y
Aro Administered.
UoLwcen tho broad and fertile acres of
Kunsiia and tho broad and only lem* fertile
nores of Toxas, lies a wild nnd beautiful
lv-jion lniown as tho  Indian  Territory,
writes Anna Laurens Dawes in Ilnrpcrh
Magazine, Tho imaginary lines which divide it from tho neighboring States have
beon strengthened by National law into
strong walls, which, if not actually impassable, liavo yet proved substantial barriers.
Even tho inhabitants or tho contiguous
Ktatc3 havo littlo personal knowlodgo of
the people or tho land beyond a strong
hatred of tbo ono, horn of an undue lust for
tho other.   Tho eastern part of thla Terr'
tory is inhabited by what aro called the
"ilvo   civilized  tribos"—tho   Chorokccs,
Creeks, Seminoles, Choctaws and Chicka-
fiaws. Each of thom lives a lifo absolutely scparato from tho rest, with its own
neoullat'ltios,       own institutions and its
cvTii national characteristics, for each—lot
it, not be forgotten-each is a nation.   But
certain things aro truo of thom all.  Com-
num circumstances and   common   needs
havo wrought upon common traits of raco
nud character to produco like results.  Tho
■-■jvernmont of oach nation is republican,
with frequently recurring elections, legislatures, executives and 'systems of judiciary.    Each   nation  supports   comraou
r.chools and high Bchools, provides chari-
lublo   institutions and  fosters churches.
Whether Choctaw or Cherokee, theso Indiana carry on largo business interests, and
livo intelligent and valuable lives.
Viulta is tho most commorciul town of.thls
nation, but not its mo3t representative Rot*
tlomont.   "Havoyou soon Tahloquahf" iB
tho instant quostion asked of him who pro-
.  fessos a knowledge of tho Indian Torritory,
and not without reason. Located In tho interior of tho country, among tho mountains,
lho approach by tho all-day ride among tho
weeded hills, over tho grassy uplands, nnd
through tho forest glades threaded everywhere with' rushing creeks, servos to
heighten the   effect.   * * * Tahlequah
Jlrsf. discovers itsolf afar off, octobs ono of
the mostbeautifulof thoBO prospects, Ina
iargo and somewhat imposing briok building standing out alono upon a swelling
height.  Unneighbored, and yet requiring a
conaiderablo population to fill it, it seems
something of a mystery; and when the
winding road comoa face to faco with its
Bimpliolty and its sizo, it proveB no loss
mysterious, although in a different [way,
cmco It is n public colloge for Indian boys
mut young men.  Throo miles furthor ride,
utiil in tho opon country, though no longer
through an nltogothor uncultivated region,
brings tho travolor suddenly into tho long
main street of a iargo town. Hero sits in
soiono andself-contord isolation tho capital
of a nation, containing in itself every ole-
mdnt of such a capital oxcopt thoso mctro-
uciittin products which belong to crowded
centers of tho world's lifo,
In tho very mlddlo of Tahlequah is its
capitol, a largo brick structure surrounded
by an opon squuro tilled with locust trees.
Tlio size and relative Importance of this
building mark tho'fceling that this Is a nation.  Hore moots a Logislaturo composed
of two Houses, retaining traces of tho common Indian and whito inliuonce ovor thoir
origin, in thoir titles of Council and Senate.
Tho Council is presided ovor by a Speaker,
and tho Senato by an Assistant Chiof. Bills
must puss both Houses, and require tho
bigmituro of tho Executive This officer
pi-fsseosca much power, and Ib a man of
ninny titles, sinco ho is actually Presidont,
nnd is bettor known as Principal Chiof,
whilo in common conversation ho is usually
i ddrosscd as Govornor. Undor him is an
Assistant*Ohlof answering to our Vice-Pros-
ideal, a Secretary of State, ft Treasurer, a
fjupeiintoudcut of Public Instruction, and
Eoverul other officers. All aro elected directly by tho peoplo, and for torms of four
years. Thoso hotly-contested elections oc*
cur every two yoars, when balf of tho Counnl aro chosen, and iu August, a month oi
agricultural vacation, thus marking the
chiof occupation of tho poopio. AU tho affairs of the nation—vory noarly literally all
or them-aro debated nnd settled by this
Legislature. Tlie ostabliBhraont nud support of schools, questions of flnanco, permissions or licenses to railways or telegraphs, tho admission of religious teachers
to tlio privllogos of tho nation—all thoso
nmttora aro decided as of old in
tho council; but neither tho hereditary right of Indian custom on tho ono
hand, nor tho Anglo-Saxon condition of ago
ontho other, admits to this body. Every [ To wind up with uu anecdote: Ononouc*

What return do birds givo on tho capital
invested. This, saya E. Atherton in the
Anaheim (Cal.) QaxeUMVOtxlti he tho flrst
question asked hy any ono thinking of going in for farming. It is a question very
few, even of thoso who havo boon at it for
aomo years, could answer, and of whicli the
public hero havo as yet but little idea.
.Tudgiug from oxporionco had with birds
horo tho last twelvo months it is my opinion
that this industry will assumo immense
proportions in a vory fow years aud outrival that of South Africa. The Fronch
have mado groat efforts to introduce ostrich
farming hi Algiers, bnt it docs not seem to
have taken much root thero. Birds aro
also, to a small degrco, kept iu u tame stato
m Egypt. Tho North African ostrich ia
considered to give a moro valuable feather
than the South African, it boing longer in
tho (luff. A fow years ago two pair,; of
birds wero imported at Port Elizabeth.
South Africa, from Bnrbury. Hero ia an
opening for aomo speculator to import some
here. The Melbourne Acclimatization ISo-
cioty imported some into Australia somo
fifteen yoars ngo, but thoy havo only slight*
Iy increased, nnd tho experiment ns yet cun
hardly be considered a succoso. A few
other small lots have also been Introduced
Into somo of lho othor Australian colonics.
Beforo endeavoring to show tho proflts derivable from birds it would bo woll to "v ate
for lho benefit of tho incredulous unit I
havo no birds of my own for salo, nor havo
I any interest in tho fnrm I am working-
receiving simply a monthly stipend.
To the point: Sny a man buys ten young
birds seven mouths old, at which ago they
have just given thoir first crop of feathers,
which are of littlo valuo. Ho pays 520O
apicco for them and keeps thom in a paddock, say an aero in extent, for three years.
Two acres of alfalfa will keep theso birds a
year, reckoning ten tons per acre. During
thu rainy season, whon tho nlfalia doos not
grow, thoy cau bo supplied with alflleria,
which is just as good. When tho birds become accustomed to tho farm thoy can bo
allowed the run af his orchard or vineyard,
if he has any, after tho fruit is gathered,
for thoy will keep down tho weeds and do
but littlo damage to tho vines or trees. Ko
grain need bo givon thom whon thoy got n
sufficiency of green fodder. His roturna
will bo about as follows, reckoning threo
pluoldngs in tho throo years:
Ono hundred nnd fifty primo feathers,
ono aud throe-fourths pounds secondary and
tail feathers, altogether threo poinds in
weight from each bird, the valuo of which
will be:
150 primes, at ffl onch 8150 00
J& poundi seconds and tall, at (80 por
pound    87 00
Totnl K3-/G0
or &387.60 from each bird, multiplied by ton,

So in threo years tho birds will stand him
in only at tho abovo balance of 8085, when
tho real value of his birds will bo at least
$1,001) a pah-n your to him, for they would
bo old enough to commenco laying, whon
each pair (supposing tho sexes to bo equal)
would hatch nt least ton chicks annunlly,
nnd .valuing them only at 8100 apiece when
hatched, plainly shows his birds to bo worth
that amount por year.
Calculating only ton chicks from a pair *>r
birda per year is far below their ordinary
average. I know of a pair that laid hliiety-
twooggs in ono yonr, or wliich seventy
batched by artificial incubation from whieh
sixly-flvo were raised. Having only threo
pltickinga In three yenrs is less than uoual-
ly practiced in South Africa, whoro it ia
cuotomary to .pluok birds every eight
montha. But thia should not be, as the following crops aro materially deteriorated
thereby.
To bc successful wilh birds the great secret is to givo thom all the green fodder
they will cat, with a littlo grain only when
tho thermometer keeps below -10 degrees

tho machinery of government, tho public
works aro carried on, tho school and cow*
viofc systems aro maintained. Tho CUoro-
koes pay no taxes, tho nation is bo rich;
quite otherwise, for now and then, whon a
need arises, or tho United States routs
freah lands,. a money payment Is
mado to oach inhabitant. Out of tho
window* ot tho capitol may bo soon
tho loos imposing but spacious building
whero tho Supremo Court sits, with its
threo judges, of learning and character.
The particulars of a judicial system are sol-
dom dramatic, but it is interesting to learn
thnt tho courts aro modeled on our own,
and aro very successful. Tho laws of this
Nation UU u largo book, and tho strictness
cf some of its pravisions-notably those relating to intoxication-would mako a Purl*
tan envious. Tho code to general would do
ci-edlt to any community, aud its laws are
well enforced by mounted polico-a body of
una so much honored that positions in its
mnla uro greatly coveted; and if crime is
sor.icwhat too frequent in this region, it
must not bo forgotten that tho Nation is
burdened with a class of most disreputable
white men, entirely exempt from Hb own
law, and difficult to reach by any othor. If
itn convict system Ib not as elaborate as that
of Crofton or Elmira, it seems to bo effect-
unl In its results, sinco its convicts may bo

or, wholly unguarded, doing tbo janitor's
work in lta Capitol. A woll-appointod asy*

A lady who is now dwelling in Washington, ns sho bas been for tbo lust three or
four yenrs, in ouo of tho finest houses of
tho city, who has no ond of money, and all
that sorb of thing, is in serious trouble,
snys a Washington correspondent, and fcolj
thnt tho social scusou for hor lain boon a
failure. Sho was not blessed with lho gift
of discretion, nnd tho outre things sho has
said and dono havo bocu tbo town talk ever
sinco alio made her nppcarunco In Washing tm, Tho troublo Ibis timo camo from an
attempt to separate tho sheep from tho
goats, ns it were, in a social way. This lady,
who always hns entertained elegantly, and
desired to do no more than ovor this winter,
[suited invitations for threo teas, which
were Intended to introduco hor lovely young
daughter to society. To tho first tea all the
eromo do In ci-cmo woro asked and wont.
To tho second tea nnother company, a degree lower in cast, ns caste la understood
In V-V-hiiif-i'-u, were invited, und to tho
third till thu rest woro told to como liko poor
relations.
It docs not acorn lo havo occurred to tho
hoste-it- Hint hor friends might not like to
bo chu-filjlod iu this way, but tlio .discrimination would not hnvo been bo conspicuous
If thu lady herself had uot "given It away."
Toa particulur friend who was not in town
when the first tea wna given, sho sont an
invitation to tbo second, and oxplalnod that
sho wna sorry because ho "could not moot
our best aet." Tho littlo remark was innocently repeated as characteristic of a lady
who often said foolish things, nnd then wns
uiulicioualy circulated, as such remarks
often aro. It was ovor tho wholo town in a
week. Thoso who nttondod tho socond tea
didn't like it nay to woll, but tho thlrfl lot
wero howling mad, nud not moro than a
dozen came, although a hundred or moro
woro expected uud provided for. People
then begun to nsk llielr acquaintances if
thoy belonged te Mrs. 80-nud-So's first,
Rocotid or third Bet. Those who woro naked
to the first act enjoyed it, but tho others
didn't boo tho joke.
Finally the lady learned the canso of tho
smnll attendance at hor third entertainment,
and folt vory bad about it, for sho is too
good-humorod to iutoationnlly offend any
ono. Thon sho sot about to contrive aomo
way of retrieving the error, but Instead o(
getting out fell still deeper Into tho ml re.
A charity ball was givon with ticket-* vi
two dollars a head. Bho purchased two
hundred of Hiobo tickets and sent thom, with
hor compllmonta, to all who bad received
Invitations to tho third tea. It wna kindly
Intended, but had an effect opposite to that
desired, for thoao wbo received tho coiupli-
montB roltmorellko poor relations tban over.
Bomo threw tho tlekota Into tho liro; olhora
returned thom to tho lady with Indlgutint or
sarcastic notes, Buying that while t hev were
not do rich as sho Ihoy wero Mill nblo lo
pay their way to any ontertiiinim.it they
wuu ted lo attend, umt woro not uccepiing
charity. And at llio halt It wna u common
jnkofortho guests to nsk one uiioiher ir

Bryan O'Lynn had no boots for to weaf,
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, "lie not taken in,
But buy from J. Rousseau," says Bryan O'Lynn.
" If there 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 Park t'oinmllice's Rcpoil.
The report of tho park committee
was laid beforo tho ci.y council laat
night. It shows that the total expenditure on tho park has beeu 822,000
divided as follows: Clearing, @3-0C9{
McLennan & Lonoy's contract, 82,-
500; athletic grounds nnd trotting
courso, &-(i,C30" exhibition building,
$7,0Oi sbbdp, Btables and pens, §!),*
500. The ovor expenditure was warranted, inthe opinion of the committee, by tho neeessity of preparing for
the provincial exhibition, by placing
the grounds m an attractive antl re*
flp'eetfthio condition, nnd the improvements being permanent tho money
wns uot in anyway unwisely expended.
The report recommends that additional accomodation, in tho shape of another wing to tho exhibition building, and
more stock sheds, be provided, together with the fencing of the grounds and
tho completion of tho clearing of tlio
enclosure. To accomplish theso ends
it is proposed to raise (mother loan of
$18,000, aud a public meeting is culled
for Thursday night to discuss tlie
subject uud obtain an expression of
tho ratepayers on the question. The
report concludes wilh the rccotniiicn-

One of the asylum guards 1ms made
up hia mind that a lunatic ia not worthy tli j moat trifling confidence reposed in him, yesterday he took
three of tho pationt"! out for a walk.
They wore nico peaceable lunatics,
harmless as lambs and as gentle ns
doVes, The guard wan fond of tho
lunatics, and thought tho fueling wri
reciprocated, but he waa mistaken.
Iti tho course of their walk thu guard
stopped at a friend ,i houso to pay
a shott call, stationing two of
the lunatics outside the gate
and the third inside, tolling them
not t j movo on any account. The visit was a trifle longer than the "out*
stdo tho gate" patients thought proper,
and, as thero was no telling when the
guard would think proper to ro-appenr,
they left word with tho "inside" man
that thoy would return nt 5 o'clock,and
quietly strolled away. A moment
Inter the guard mado hia appearance
and received the message in
anything but a cheerful spirit.
Tlio lunatics wero observed walking
down Columbia atreet by another
guard, who took them to tlto gaol and
locked them up, but tho "visiting"
guard,not knowing this, continued his
eeavdh for sovurul hours, covering
milts of country niitl making thousands
of inquiries. Finally worn out with
fatigue ho returned to tho gaol only
to Hnd that tho lunatics had been
under lock and key almost from tho
iiiiuuto ho hud missed them.

A prisoner in the provincial gaol
known aa "Jack" is a meat delightfully
amuaiugnnd goodnafcurcd fellow, and
ovory moment of his spare time is d r-
voted to the enleitiinment uf hi.i fellow ptjotion, whoso life in jail ho tries
to make ns pleasant and ciicortul as
possible, The fifty lunatics now quartered iu the gaol aro Jack's special delight, and not a day parses but ho do-
viaea some eniortuinment and interesting amusement for their special benelit
nnd iu consequence Jack is considered
a primo good fellow by tho patients. This morning Jack announced a programme of trapeze nnd hor-
izottWl bar performances, and sum-
memo .1 all the lunatics to Witness
hts wonderful doeds. Everything went
well until the performer tried to "skin
tho cat", using the railing on the balcony around the upper tiorof colls for
a bar. Jack "skinned tho cat" in perfect style, nnd was highly applauded by
the audience, but, do his best, hu could
not get back to his original position
While making most prodigious efforts
to get on to the balcony again, Jack's
hand slipped and lie fell somo 10 feet,
striking tho cement pavement with
such forco ns to causo a compound fracture of the right arm, just above the
wrist. The lunatics thought this vmu
pnrt of the programe nnd fairly howled with delight, a few of lho muat enthusiastic insisting ou an encore.
Jack, however, gravely announced
that the show was ovor for tho day,hut
he would be happy to repeat it, without change of progrome, 0 months aftor the death of tho lust member et
bin audience. The medical Superintendent of the gaol set tho broken
limb, and tho patient is busy for*

From W. S. Gore, surveyor genoral,
stating a crown grant for lot 757,
group one, district of Westminster,
will be issued iu favor of the corporation in duo course. Received and
filed.
From Thos. L. Briggs, stating that
he docs not care to havo any earth removed from his lots on Agnes streot,
and suggesting that a retaining wall be
built to protect tho damage already
done; also suggesting that a bidder be
placed at each of the elevated loti so
that the owners might climb up onco
in a while and look nt thoir property,
Received and tiled.
From James E. Phillips, protesting
1 against the grade in front of his prop
i erty on Agnes street, and stating that
I if tho evil ii not remedied hu will ask
§1,030 damages; also staling that it is
i impossible for him to uso the front entrance to hia house since tho grade has
been changed.   Received ami tiled.
From John McKenzie, protesting
ngninst the manner in whieh certain
real estato owners havo subdivided
lots _ and 20, suburban bluok?, the
same being at total variance with tho
genoral plan of tho city. As au instance of this ho cited where a street
had beeu laid out ol feet iu width in
stead of (10 feet, and which in tho proper order of things cannot be extended
beyond the lots in question.
On motion, tho clerk wna instructed
to inform ail parlies that no streets
will bo accepted unless in conformity
with tho cily plans.
From R. P. Boll, T. J. Trapp aud
others, petitioning tlie council to take
some steps to repair Douglas street,
from Montreal streot to tho cityHmits,
it boing at present in a disreputable
condition and dangerous for travel.
On motion, the boaid was instructed
to place tho road in proper ropair,
From Hon. John Robson, provincial secret ry, stating tliat ho had not,
oiiicially or otherwise, written on tho
subject of tho 80 feet draw in tho Mission bridgo to the federal government,
but correspondenoo had takon plaoe bo-
twoen tho government and tlio C. P.
R. Co., a copy of which was submitted
for the benelit of the counoil.
Letter No. 1—From Mr. H. Abbott
to the provincial government, stiting
that a*misapprehension existed in tho
minds of members of parliament re-
garding the proposed draw in the Mission bridge, nud citing numerous cases,
sueli as the Lachtuo canal, the Assina-
bomo bridge, Red River bridges,
Sanlt St. Marie canal and others,
whore none of tho draws woro larger
tban SO feet,
Letters No. 2, M and 4—From Capt,
John Irving, manager of tho C. P. N.
Co., agreeing to an 80-foot draw,
which ho considered large enough.
Letter No. 5—From Hon, John
Robson, provincial secretmy, saying
tlie government had examined the correspondence and would nit raise any
objection to tho proposed draw of 80
feet, considering tliat the public interests would bo woll served with a,draw
of that extent.
Lottor Nti. (i—From II. Abbott, ox*
pressing the willingness of the company to place tlie draw where it would
be moat servicable for the public use.
Aid. Reid said it would be unwise to
take the advice of Oapt, Irving us lio
was concerned too deeply with tho C.
P. R. to givo a fair opinion. Booms
of logs could not bu safely taken
through an 80 foot draw.
Aid. Cunningham said ho was sorry
to see tho provincial secretary had
been mislead. Ho for ono would nevor
submit to a smaller drnw than 100
feet, and tho more ho reflected on it,
the moro seriously it seemed to menace
tho welfare of Westminster. He would
strongly oppose an 80-foot bridge.
Aid, Keary coincided with tho last
speaker, and heartily endorsed tho
sentiments expressed.
Tho communication was received
and tiled.
From Angus Mc-.nnis and othera-
nskiuir that a stroet bo opened between
Halifax and Douglas streets, below
Montreal atreet.
As llio street in question had not
j been deeded to tho city, no action
could be taken in tho matter, although
tho aldermen nil admitted that such
streets as theso should bo opened as
soon as possiblo.
Aid. Cunningham favored a liberal
policy in stroet opening, particularly
the back streets, where peoplo had
difficulty in reaching their houses.
Aid. Keary said ho was sorry tho
chairman of tlm liimrico committeo was
not present, for it had beon determined to advise that all work, oxcept
when absolutely necessary, should bo
stopped from now till tho nnd of tho
year. If thia was not dono tho council
would go out of oflice 810,000 in dobt.
From Stewart & Cash, asking permission to erect a verandah in front of
their premises, which they woro un-
able to do when the building was erected, owing to tho scarcity of labor.
Tho aldermen woro all favorably inclined to nllowins tho verandah to bo
built, but tho by-law would havo to bo
amended in order to allow the concession asked, therefore tho council could
do nothing In the mailer. It seemed
a hard-drip in this case, but it could
not be helped.
From E. Why man, asking for an increase of pny ns carctukur of tho city
hall.
On motion, hia salary was increased
510 per month.
From Armstrong it Eckstein, instructed by Mra. Brighouse, asking tho
council to take immediate steps, in accordance with tho provisions of the
New Westminstor not, for tho purposo
of determining and paying the amount
of damage dono to her property on
Agnos slroet; nlso requesting au answer to tho foregoing on or before
Wednesday, ao that thoy might advise
their client ns to thu host steps to take
in the matter.
Aid. Reid moved that tho clerk be
instructed to reply, saying that the
oouncil had uo power to mako any
awards.
Aid. Calbick suconded tlie motion,
aud thought that tho sooner tho mat-
tor wna brought to a head tho better.
If tho city had not tho power to mako
streots it should be known immediate-

Tho lire aud light committee reported recommending that tho eity clerk
bo instructed to tako steps to collect
§23 from Mr. Junes, of Vanoouver,
the cost of a lamp post broken by him.
Report adopted.
Aid. Shiles reported that the board
of health had examined tho complaint
of Mr. Fraser regarding nusianco on
Elliott street, and stating that no
nusianco was fouud on the premises
referred to.   Report adopted.
Tho water ;ind sewerage committee reported that they had under consideration Mr. J. T. Fanning's report on
the proposed water works system, and
recommended that a 14 in. main bo
adopted; that tenders bo called for the
whole'work; that tenders be called for
material laid down in Westminster;
that tenders be called for making pipe,
excavating and laying.
The council went into committeo on
the report. It was pointed out that a
14 inch main will supply water for a
city of 18,000 inhabitants, while a 10
inch main would supply 27,000 poople;
tho 10 inch pipe will cost §22,000
more than tho 14 inch pipe; the lattor
pipo with a reservoir would supply
25,000 people. After a great deal of
discussion ib was decided to use the 14
inch pipe as tho population would not
likely reach abovo 25,000 iu live years.
Ou motion tho report was adoptod
nnd tho matter uf choice of pipe to be
used was left with tho committeo. The
chairman aaid the tenders would be advertised in all tho loading engineering
journals in tho east and Canada.
The park committoe reported as
follows:
1. That tho approximate expenditure
on the park has been as follows: Clearing under Patterson, 83,000; McLennan
& Loney, contract, 92,500; athletic
grounds and trotting courso, §0,000; exhibition building, £7,030; sheds, stables
and pens, §3,500; making a total of
S-2.0C3.
2. That the excess of expenditure over
lo.*"i is warranted by tho necessity of pre-
paring for tho provincial exhibition whioh
has given very genoral satisfaction. Tho
athletic grounds and driving track required a very largo expenditure, but
theso are permanent improvements which
will greatly add to the pleasure of citizens generally.
3. Additional accommodation is requited for next exhibition, and the committeo recommends that another wing bo
added to tho exhibition building and that
more sheds bo erected for stock. If this
reoommendatio i decs not meet with approval, tho committee submits that tho
athletic grounds nnd stock yards should
be seeded down immediately and a permanent fence erected to enclose the
cleared portion cf the park, and that the
remaining portion of the athletic grounds
Bhould bu leveled and seeded to grass,
4. The committee recommend that a
loan of §18,000 bo mado to car 'y out the
suggested improvements, and thnt a
public meeting be called for Thursday
right, the 2*1 tli inst., for the purposo of
receiving a statement of facts and figures
relating to Quoen's park and ascertaining
the sentiments of the ratepayers with respect to the proposed loan.
5. The committee also recommend
thut throe porsons bo elected park commissioners without salary, and that a bylaw bo prepared for tho election of said
commissioners, simultaneously with tho
election of mayor and aldermen next December, and defining their duties.
Aid. Cunningham added iu explanation that it would bo necessary to decide upon what is to bo dono without
delay. Tho stock sheds would have to
bo enlarged, for nt lenst doublo the
animals would bu exhibited next year.
Tho building also would havo to be
enlarged, as ho intended thnt every
manufacturer in Canada would have
exhibit* at the next fair. Ho also proposed to havo the exhibition so large
and popular that all tho principal
journals in Canada would send representatives to it, and thus do Westminster good beyond expectation."
Aid. McPhaden thought next season
would be time enough to mako any
improvements that may be necessary.
Aid. Keary did not see thut anything
would bo gained by delay; the work
had to bo done and therefore the present council should finish tho work so
successfully commenced. Thoro had
been au over-expenditure, nnd it was
proposed to meet this by a second loan,
but he would ask that §2,000 bo added
to the proposed loan bo that the crescent could be put in proper condition.
Aid. Curtis thought tho matter would
not suffer by standing over for a week.
Aid. Roid and Aid. Calbick wero of
tho opinion that nothing was to b«
gained by delay. The noxt oouncil
might havo different ideas on improvements, and therefore it was the duty
of the present board to do all in their
power for the benefit of tho park.
Aid. Shiles considered tho boat plan
wus to lay thu matter boforo the poople and let them decide whether or not
they favored the loan.
Tho park committees report was Anally adopted.
Hia worship reported that complaints
had been mado to hint that W. R.
Austin was keeping a store un his
wharf.   Report received.
Aid. Roid reported that thu now lire
building on tho water front would extend uut a shorl distance over the
water.
Tho pound by-law was laid over.
Aid. Curtis aaked if the board of
works had reported on the discharge of
ono of tho city engineers, aud on being
answered in the negative said the board
of works know thnt something was
wrong in lho engineering department
and if some notion was not taken by
tho bourd he would move in Iho matter.
Aid, Shiles said hu was only a figurehead on tho board; he was never onu-
suited by tho chairman and knew
nothing of what was being done. Aid.
Jaques was running the bourn in the
face of tho whole council, uud thing--
were not going right.
Aid, Curtis said the Columbia street
flume would never havo boon a failure
had tho engineer attended to hiB work.
Some of tho contractors had not ceeit
the engineer in n month. Work wns
being badly dune in all directions, nnd
solely from neglect.
Aid, Cunningham said ho did not
like to aay much in thonbsenco of Aid.
Jaques, but ho agreed with the other
speaker-! that things were going wrong.
Aid, Calbick said it would be better
to to wait for a roport from tho chairman of tho board of works, who was
preparing ono,
Aid. Curtis: "That is juit the way
with the board of works. If wo wait
for the board to do its duty we will
wait a long timo. Mr. Gauvrcnu lias
beon a good and faithful servant aud
now it is your duty to choose between
the two; thero is not work for so large
aBtaff."
Aid. Keary: "Tho wholo board
knows the city engineer has not done
his duty, therefore 1 move that ho bo
givon a month's notico nnd Mr, Gauv*
re:iu bo appointed in his place,''
This was socondod, but withdrawn
in order to givo the chairman of the
board of works a chance to roport on
the subject before action was taken,
Aid. Cunningham gave notico that
ho would introduce a bylaw to raise
818,000 to complete tho park improvements.
Tho council then adjourned.
