clear that thn Catholic vote, about
which tlioro wus somo doubt, must

lighting trim.

IiISCREET GREENWAY.
Toronto, Nov. 20.—PremierGreeti-
w. y, of Manitoba, was seen by a Globe
reporter lust evening nt his hotel. Mr.
Greenway upon being asked as to the
position and popularity of the agitation
in tnvor of the abolition of separate
schooli- in Manitoba, said there bad
been a great deal of agitation throughout tho province, through the press
and other ways. It was being continued, and would come to a head
whon tho house met. He believed the
people wero very much in favor of it.
-'Will you introduce n bill to abolish
separate schools when the legislaturt-
meet*." Mr. Greenway's answer to
the question was discreet silence. Mr.
Givrnway considers the prospects of
Manitoba wero never more encouraging. Tho crops have boen very good,
and liU'-jo shipments of wheat have already boen sent to tho coast. Bailway
building has been going on steadily.
Tho population is increasing at a rapid
rate, and their future greatneea inspires
tlie peoplo of Manitoba to hard work
at the present day.

Lawrence & Brown, of the Mahsnoy
Plane colliery, have mado a tremendous hit in stiikiug a new mammoth
vein of anthracite coal. The vein is
said t j be two hundred foet thick, containing millions of tons. It will go on

yards unde-t the surface. It is now
beliuved that a mammoth vein basin

t-urd it ns inexhaustible.
CATTI.K DISEASE,
Ottawa, Nov. 10.—The department
of agriculture has news of still further
arrival in England of a caso of pleuropneumonia among cattle shipped from

the question of singing the "Kyrio" in
the church, and tho chanting of the
Psalms,   innovations  hold  by  many
Prominent members of the ohurch to
avo been introduced by Dr. Jones,
and apt to lead to Roman Catholicism.
Several resolutions and amendments
wero movod, but it was ultimately decided by a vote of 52 to 40 that the
sinning of the "Kyrio" and the chanting of tho Psalms should bo done at
such times and occasions ns the rector
should see tit, nnd in the best interests
of tho occaaion. On the side of tho
high churchmen was Justice Gwynne,

CORRESPONDENCE.
Au Elector's Wean.
Editor Columbian. Sir:—When
firm friendship of many yeurs is broken
for no other reason than that of the fact
that Mr. Cunningham would not Btand
aside for Mr. Corbould; when all the
strength of tho opposition to the govern-
ment is mustered against him who hns
no interest] outside of Westminster, mny
it not be surmised that thoso thus combining have some secret motive for their
strango action T It is claimed by the
opponents of Mr. Cunningham that the
Hon. Mr. Robson has enlisted his aid on
, the side of Mr. Corbould—surely this
| cannot bo I Why would the hon. gentleman wage battlo against ono who Tins,
through all conflicts, stood firm for the
government.
It is well known thnt, with Mr. Ma*
jov's aid in hia friendly suit against
tho C. P. K., nnd with what pnrt others
supported hlm, that gigantic company
was enabled the quicker to reach Vancouver, where the profits to Major and
others were hy no means small.
To-day these champions of Vancouver
nre a unit against the man who has
thrown in his Tot with Westminster, and
who has never lost occasion to advertise
and help her along.
Have these opponents of Cunninglium
some interest- to conserve whicli they
think u thorough Westmiiistctite cannot
promoto V
Electors, pause and study for your*
bo I vi;!- the problem .
Dy electinc* Ciiuniii-jhani you will bc
represented by one of yourselves,
I. this the case with the  other party ?
An Elector.'
Truth Hiraiger Than Fir Hob*
Editor Columbian—Sir: Did you rend
yon thing they call tlio Truth this morn*
Ing?
It has a mighty funny joko about ono
of Turn (.unnin^liani's cows eating an
Irishman; but tho things that wero
written in doad earnest ure fnr funnier
than the jokes.
The editor keeps whalin' away nt Aid,
Curtis and the --insult" he offered to tho
ratepayers; ns if wa would tnko his
word against a man who has lived among
us and acted squaro for years. No, Dave
may mako a mistake now and then, but
his heart's iu the right place, nnd we
know it.
But hero is the joke ; after blazing
Iuto Dave iu that fashion, he coolly says
it is very doubtful if wo can find throe
men in tho whole city who are lit to be
water commissioners 11 Talk about "insults'1 after that I And after shouting
himself hoarse about legality, ho advises
the council to kick tlio law to Jericho
and appoint a superintendent I
Hero, then, is Truth's big joke, and he
ought to patent it: Tho council insulted
the citizens and broko tlto law by saying
that tho threo commissioners Bhould be
appointed from ton men whom they
named.   Thnt's the first proposition.
The council would act rightly nnd
wisely by ignoring the law ana the rate*
fiayers both, and putting tho water works
nto tho hands of a man appointed by
themselves and responsible only to them.
That's tho second proposition.
Then that interview business is rich
and rare. Starting out to show that the
peoplo are excited and indignant, ha tells
us he couldn't get a man in town to give
his name as an opponent of the counoil;
and of the fivo whom ho interviewed, only j
one spoke directly against the by-law, I
and even he said ho did not mean to
worry nbout it, as it would probably
come out all right. Ratevayku.
Sir  Henry James Makes Somo
Grave Charges Against the
Parnellites.
Lord Eostou Repudiates auy Connection with the Cavendish
Square Scandal.
EVUBYTHINO AS USUAL.
London, Nov. 20.—The Bank of
Brazil cables from Rio De Janeiro to
its branch in this city, the following,
which effectually disposes of the figures reported; '-Confidence Is restored; everything is peaceful, and business goes on as usual." On the London stook exchange, Brazilian securities remained strong to the close.
QUITE CHAROKS.
London, Nov. 20.—Sir Henry James,
resuming his speech before the Parnell commission to-day, referred to
Patrick Egan's flight, as proof of
criminal conduct, and asserted there
was other evidence showing his connection with the Phoenix park murders. He also alluded to Byrne's alleged complicity in those murders
while he was acting as secretary of tho
Parnellites. Sir Henry said he did
uot wish to direct suspicion against
Mr. Lewis, or to make any charges
against him in connection with tho disappearance of the league's books,
though he could not avoid thinking he
(Law is) had been imposed upon regarding the missing books. If those books
oould have been found they would have
shown records proving Byrnes and
other parties were associated financially with the "invinciblea." Sir Charles
Russet's defense on this point wns open
to grave suspicion.
A LORD REPUDIATES.
London, Nov. 20.—Lord Eostou
instructed Mr. George Lewis, the celebrated lawyer, to bring suit for criminal libel against the editor of the
North London News, tho prosecution
being based upon charges published in
that paper that Lord Easton was involved in the scandalous action recent*
ly unearthed at Cavendish square
mansion, in this city. The prosecution will bo brought next Saturday,
and it is expected to lead to sensational revelations.
WILL NOT  ACCEPT,
Berlin, Nov. 20.—It is expected
Pof. Curtins will decline the offer of
the French academy of inscriptions, to
make him an honorary member of tbat
society. Hia ground for this action is
said to be that the academy elected
him only because the proposal to elect
Prof. Morrison was rejected.
RESUMED WORK.
London, Nov. 20.—The striking
dock laborers at Tilbury have resumed
work.
TROUBLE BREWING.
Farm, Nov.20.—M. Zola, has ob*
tained promises of a score of votes for
his election to the academy. Should
he be elected, the bishop of Autun will
resign his seat as a protest against the
.Amission of a novelist.
THE RADICAL PLATFORM.
London, Nov. 19.—Mr. John Morley, in a speech at the Eighty club this
evening, declared that the social questions to whieh the Radicals were seeking to give the first place, could by no
possibility efface the Irish question,
upon which the next election turned.
Doubtless, he said, there were social
injustices whioh demanded legislation,
and there was no question that the
taxes on tea and coffee ought to be reduced. These questions would receive
tho attention to whioh they are entitled, but even they could not overshadow tho importance or delay the
settlement of the matter of Home Rule
for Ireland. He favored a system of
freo education and free meals for poor
school children, the roform of the pauper system and the regulation of the
matter of wages.
THE PARNELL COMMISSION.
London, Nov. 19.—Mr. Justice Day,
oftho Parnell commission, wit knock
ed down by a cab this morning while
on his way to the court. He proceeded to his destination and took his seat
on the bench, but was unable to sit
during tho session. He was assisted
whon he withdrew from the court.
His injuries are not considered serious.
Sir Henry James in resuming his
address before the commission to-day,
said that the large amount of money
sent tho leaders of the national league
and unaccounted for gave wide scope
for the belief that it was used in evil
doings. He declared that the money
of the league was used to defend other
than agrarian prisoners. Sir Henry
James continuing his argument dwelt
at great length upon the Phcunix Park
murders nud asked tho court to accept
the evidence concerning the tradegy
given by tho convict Patrick Delaney,
whoso testimony, he said, was fully
supported by that of other witnesses,

A gentleman, who has just returned

that extensive ditches are required to

a connection to the road at Canoe oreek,

Bute lnlot, when it has once crossed

Tin: fuss which is kicked up
about the nomination of a number
of g .ntlemen from whom the wator
commissioners aro to be elected,
seems to us to havo a decided odor
of rod herring about it. One of tho
principles laid down for tho interpretation of statutes is that doubtful points aro to bo construed according to tho general intent and
meaning of the act. Now, if we
upp-y this principle here, we must
comlude that it was intended to
givo the council n very wide discretionary power in all matters connected with water works, and other
similar undertakings in which the
city may be engaged. Whether
this pi wer would or would not cover
the "nomination" clause is n point
upon which, we suppose, only the
docid'm of the courts could be final,
and we don't propose, therefore, to
was' e ink over it. Further, we are
quit) satisfied that the majority of
the council was animated by the
nios'-firaisewortby motives in acting us it did. Water supply was
ono >f the trusts committed to the
com: eil at its last eleution; and the
act, is we hnve said, -fives it a wide
powor of control—imposes upon it
the duty of exercising control.
The.. .hings, and not any de.iro to
diet-ite,influenced the water com*
puttee in its recommendations, nud
inlluei>ced the council in its almost
unanimous udoption of those recommendations.
But to return tu our red herring.
Ton gentlemen were nominated, and
only three can bo elected. Unless it
can b<! shown, therefore, thut nearly
all the ten are quite unlit fur ttie
position, or that we huvo among us
some "heaven-born" wnter com mis
sion .rs who were not nominated, we
fail co see where the outrage oonios
in. And as integrity, proinpniess
iu business mutters, und -_oino knowledge of uHairs are the qualities to
be looked for in the commissioner-,
mid not uny special training or technical skill, wo fancy ic would be
rath-ir hard to establish either proposition. Now, as the position of
watt r commissioner will bo one in
which the kicks will be largely in
exce.8 of the half-pence, we think
we are quito Justified in the conclusion that there is strong reason
to nuspeet a basis of interested
motives in the fuss made about the
matter; and if there is one thing of
publ.c interest which, above all
others, should bo kept clear of any
taint of that sort, it is the waterworks scheme. We have heard it
remi rked that any man who would
attempt to mako this matter a hunting ■ round for his private interests
shou d bo promptly taken out and
hin- ad, Tho expression was a
stroi g one, but we hopo the senti-
meni ot righteous indignation which

DAILY BRITISH OOMTMBTAN. KEW WESTMINSTER, B O.. NOVEMBER 00. 18*9
Who could believe that tho follow!. >g revolting recital was a true
nccoi nf of the manner in which two
Clin t.n (.) gentlemen deliberately
took echother's lives in this year
of gi iv 1889, in tho. old state of
Kt'i .laky, and in the land of the
alars imd stripes- whioh boasts the
grcitti-t-t triumphs of liberty and
civilisation on the round globo ? And
yet the horrible story is too true.
Home brief account of the trugedy
appei n-d in the despatches at the
time. An exchange gives the fol-
. lowing Mood curdling particulars:
"On Friday nfternoon (Nov. Sth)
Colonel William Oassius Goodloe
iiinl Oolonel A, M. Swope, both resident-) of Loxington, Ky., met in the
post oilice in that city by chance.
For f.veral years previous they had
been at enmity, having quarreled
over political mutters. Their accidental meeting ted to angry words.
After the words had passed both
men straightened up and drew their
weapons simultaneously, Swope a
pistol and Goodloc a spring blade
hunting knife. Swope immediately
fired, the ball missing its object and
striking the glass in post office box
362, lodging on the inside of the
office. Beforo Swope could shoot
again Goodloe was upon him with
the knife, the first thrust of which
took effect in the immediate centre
of the breast, producing a frightful
wound, whioh severed tho fourth
and fifth ribs. This blow waa followed up rapidly by others which
cut the left breast into mincemeat,
By this time Swope was able to flro
again, and placing the pistol, whioh
waa a 38 calibre Smith & Wesson,
against the right side of Goodloe's
abdomen he fired, the ball ranging
downward and producing a wound
whleh it is feared will prove fatal.
Juit ai the shot was fired Goodloe
grabbed Swope by the left arm and
began another fiorce onslaught with
the knife, striking hia adversary in
the back five times, twico in the
, left arm, onco in the right arm, and
once on the right wrist, nearly severing the hand. Eaeh time the
deadly knife fell Swope uttered a
loud 'Oh F and when Goodloe turned
him loose he attempted to open the
door of the lobby leading to tbe
street,  which  is held shut by a
strong spring. Before he could get
the door open ho grew weak from
loss of blood, and fell forward on
his face in a pool of his own blood.
He died almost instantly, for when
the post office employes reached his
sido he was a corpso. Another account states that just as Swope fell
Goodloe stepped to the door, and
with a wave of his hand- exclaimed,
'He bellowed like a calf.' The evidence taken at the inquest brought
to light the fact that Swope's pistol
dropped from his hand during the
early part of tbe conflict. Goodloe
has since died." Both men, it
should bo stated, were leading citi
zens of Lexington and prominent
members of tho Republican party
and both had held high positions
under national administrations. As
showing the light in which suoh
horrible incidents are regarded in
Kentucky and other parts of tho
United States, thero is a noticeable
absence in the despatches from Lexington to the metropolitan press of
any expression of horror at tho
butchery. We are told, it is true,
that universal sorrow is expressed,
but the sorrow appears to bo only
thut which would have been felt had
the two men died in their beds.
One account dilates upon the magnificent temper of the blado with
which Oolonel Goodloo did his diabolic work, oiting as proof thereof
the fact that two of Oolonel Swope's
ribs were severed and his wrist and
spinal column almost cut through.
All the despatches from Lexington
and several from Washington dwell
upon the "courtesy, genial nature,
and generally lovable character" of
the man who so murderously used
this fino weapon. The president,
we are also told, knew Oolonel
Goodloe well, ond esteemed him
highly. It may be urged on behalf
of this highly-estimable nnd lovable
gentleman that the knife has long
been a favorite weapon in his family.
Pits uncle, Oassius M. Clay, once
carved a roan to pieces with u bo wit-
knife at a political meeting near
Lexington beforo the war, and since
then one of his brother**, a son inlaw of Senator Be k, chose the same
tveapon <vit!i which to fighl n. .lu.'l
t whioh lie hud beon oliallent-yd
Much to his dis'/ust. no doubt, si (
guns ut twenty pacts were substi
tijted. Ah tne man with the lovable
chftractei his jus demonstrated, the
bowie is muoh the nipfe eftW-tive
weapon. All "ther considerations
aside, cannot -t few mislibnaries be
sent' to Kentucky to teach thi --
worse than savages h little common
humanity .
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
An incident' of » kind all too rare
is related by ; In- Dry Goods Chronicle,
It appears that in 1882 the firm of
Peel, Son it Watson, underclothing
manufacturer-; iu Manchester, were
obliged to make a composition with
their creditors, paying 17s. fid. on
the pound. Since that time the
firm under the style of Peel, Watson
■t Oo. have been successful, and they
recently posted cheques to all creditors of the former firm for the 2s. Gel.
remaining in the pound. This action has given much pleasure to the
recipients of the cheques, and will
not be without its effect on the commercial conscience.

that to close these theatres will

It is not a question of a few dollars

The brief note in our yesterday's
telegrams gives little idea of the in
terost taken in the east, especially
in Toronto, in the can of Harvey,
found guilty ot the murder of his
wife and children. It is certainly
one of the most remarkable cases of
the kind in the history of crime.
Abundant evidence wai produced to
show that Harvey waa a most affec*
tionato husband and father, and
that he was, in other respects, one
of the men least likely to commit
the crime of whieh he is undoubtedly
guilty, All the fncts point to the
conclusion that his act was the outcome of insanity, and people are
asking if an insane man is to be
hanged. The excitement is increased by the publication of a statement
that a witness, brought from a dis-
tanco by the crown, was not called
as it was found, on his cross-examination, that facto tending strongly to
support tho theory of insanity would
be sure to come out.

the growlngimporlnnnunfthocxhililt ions,
tlio Government should give favorable
consideration to tho question of Increasing that grant.      ■ '-
The Government should. In my opinion,
deed to tho oity all publle lands within Us limits not actually required for the
use of tho Government
As tho representative of a growing and
progressive city, It would bo my endeavor
to watch every opportunity of attracting
lo Nuw Westminster new Industries and
new moans for thedevelopment of wealth;
and to obtain for suoh any necessary assistance from the Government,
As tliis Is the closing session of tho
present parllament-I need not del all my
views nslo general legislation; but there
Is one point which demands immediate
attention, An act should bo passed conferring upon every cltlKon tlio right to
bring suit against the Government, as tho
law now stands tho consent of the Government must bo obtained beforo any sueh
action enn be brought and tills confers
upon tho (.nvo.iim.oiit powor that they

A gentleman who has boen much
annoyed by cows entering his premises
without leave, and trampling ovor hia
flower-beds aud grass-plots, was noticed
this morning depositing a largo and
btiBinoss-looking club in it convenient
situation near tho front gate. Any
cows with a penchant for chewing rosebushes, chrysanthemums, rhododendrons and other garden plants will
havo those epicurean edibles dished
up to them hot.
Tho houae of Mr. Miller, of Sumas,
is built on solid ground but his burns
and outbuildings are not. Tho effect
of Sunday's gale on the latter was on the
caving iu of the bank of tho Fraser on

of tho buildings and tho loss of some
cows, a horse und a dog, sonic farm
produce and agricultural implements.
Tbe river ta rapidly eating away the
bank at that point and fears aro beginning to bo entertained thnt at no
very distant date tho Fraser may form

No oue can havo any conception of
the devastation wrought by the late

walk out that way. Tho enormous
charred trunks which have been standing bo long, and which hnvo braved
many a winter gale, in numerous instances, nnw lie piled one on top of
the other iu a mass of inoxtricablc confusion. In falling those forest giants
crushed many-small _r trees, and in
some cases went clear across the roadway. There can ho no scarcity of firewood this winter, and on tho principle
that "it's an ill wind that blows nobody

Killed by Hogs.
Aid, W. II, Keary is mourning tho
death of two lino southdown sheep,
both pedigreo animals, which wero
killed by dogH on Monday night. One
of the animals was killed outright, and
the other wus so badly toru that Mr.
Keary was obliged to kill it to put an
ond to it_ sufferings. The sheep wero
kept in a fenced lot, at Sapperton, and
the dogs got tn during the night and
hunted thom down. Sheep hunting
d<igs aro a nuisance iu any community,
nnd Mr. Keary can obtain full damage
if he can prove tho ownership of th.

Mr. Thibaudeau, C.E., engineer on

and reports that the contractors are
doing splendid work. They have a
large forco of men employed, who nro
worked to such advantago as to assure
both good work and a handsome profit. The weather has been very favorablo for outdoor operations and consequently everything pertaining to the
construction of tlto dyko is very substantia).
Heavy Suit Won.
During Ihe recent assizes in Winnipeg tho Royal City Pinning Mills Co.
brought two suits against William Carson Woods and Henry Woods, trading
aa Woods & Co., to recover tho amount
of several bills of exchango accepted
by tho defendant, and amounting altogether to nbout $7,000. The bills
wero not paid nt maturity and were
returned to tho plaintiff. Tho defendants had n contract to furnish the
C. P. R. with largo quantities of lumber for tho building uf bridges nud
trestles on the line, and agreed with
tho pluintill's to buy tho lumber from
them. The bills were drawn for lumber supplied, nnd tho defendant, contend the agreement waa that tho bills
wore to be renewed by tho pi .intil.--,
but this was not done. The defence
also raised the point that the plaintiffs
were not the holders of tbo bills, but
(hat they were held by the Bank of
British Columbia and Bank of Montreal. His lordship entered n verdict
for plaintiffs for $6,777.17.

.There Were Ibe Police?
A few nighti ago Mr. Peter Grant,
while tossing restlessly on his sick bed,
heard two men enter the garden by
tho front gate. A few minutes later
he heard one of his chicken, uttering
a smothered cry. Despite tho fact
that lie was Buffering terribly from
rheumatism, Mr, Grant got out of bed
nnd dragged himself to the front window, which he managed to open. He
then called to the men to clear out,
which thoy did very leisurely, probably knowing Mr, Grant was unable to
follow them. Ho then called at tho
top of his voice sovorsl times for the
polioe, but although the night was perfectly still and clear, and tho noiso
made by him might easily have been
heard half a milo away, no guardian of
the law responded to the oall. Tho
thieves were not quickened in their
movements by tho shouts of Mr.
Grant, but on the contrary quietly
walked down the path to the gate and
■trolled leisurely down Oolumbia street
in the direction of the awatnp.

Tho rough wator on tho Inlet yesterday morning, says the World, mado
it impossible fur the diver to repair the
break in tho water worka main, which
is found to bo about 200 feet from tho
north shore. It was expected, however, that he would bo ablo tu go down
during tho aftornoon at law water, nnd
then it will be only a matter of a fow
hours, A telegram wus Bent to San

new steel mains sent up immediately.
When thoy arrived they will be put in,
and two mains will hereafter bo in ugc.
This, it is stated, will ensure tho public against such un i neon ven ienco

How to Keep Well.
Probably the very bad weather had
much lo do with keeping many away
from Dr. Walker's lecture at tho
Y.M.C.A. rooms last night. Otherwise it is hard to imagine how nny
man cuuld look on sueh a locture ns
not worth going to hear. An audionco
of twenty-live listened to the doctor's
lecture on "How to keop well." The
interest in the subject wns sustained
throughout and ull matters touching
tho health, hygiene, food, bathing,
ventilation and exercise \yer_ briefly
explained in their relation to health.
The doctor wus accorded a hearty vote
of thanks for his interesting talk, and
it is hoped thut ho will lind it convenient to repent the lecturo. Should
tho doctor do so ho will certainly have
a bumper houso whether it is raining
or not.
An Aco_i.min.lnlIng Company.
The great pains taken by the Canadian Pacific Railway Company to mako
passengers ovor it3 lines comfortable,
and to oblige thom in every possible
way, ia proverbial all over the continent where the company seeks business, but not so to the poor travellers
who have no alternative route, and
must cither take the accommodation
afforded or walk. Yesterday 25 passengers for Westminster boarded the
train at Vancouver, but were informed
the train would bo held back for a
short timo awing to n rock slide nenr
Spuzzum, A little later it was announced -"he train would leavo nt 4
o'clock, and the passengers waited patiently. Tho last named hour arrived,
and a further announcement was made
that the passengers for Westminster
could leave by the rogular evening train
at 0:30 o'clock. Among .he passenger.
were several who had to be in Westminster before 0 o'clock, ami theso
were forced to hire carriages aud drive
to tho city through tho mud and rain.
it would not have cost the C. P. R. a
very great amount to have sent tho
Went minster passem-ers to the junction by a special. In fact it would
have beeu a very profitable enterprise.
Common courtesy, at least, should have
actuated the officials in honestly acknowledging that there would bo no
train tit! evening, thus giving those
persons pressed by time uu opportunity
of finding somo other mode of conveyance.

Will be Worth Svclnic.
Tho opera houso resounded lust
night with tho din of preparation for
to-night's "show," and tho boys held
a very informal rehearsal beforo an
audience composed ot some dozen or
so of their friends. Tho work on the
horizontal bar and iu the somersaults
and tumbling is especially good, while
iu the other items they nre by no
moans novices. It is strango that so
little interest is taken here in that
noble anil aristocratic "art of fencing,"
which is so much in favor in tbe east
and in Europo. It iB the most beautiful, graceful and health-giving exercise ovor invented by man, and will do
more to develop the muscles, expand
the chest, strengthen tho lungs, give
that elastic step and supple, siuewy
strength so much more prized than
great, clumsy, ox-like power, than any
nmount of other exercise. The con-
stunt practice of it gives the eye a
keeness, tho wrist a strength and the
entire body au agility attainable by no
other means. It iB the antithesis of
boxing. One of the items on to-night's
program mo at tho opera houao ia fencing, and although ono of the contestants has uot hud much practice, the
bout will no doubt bo interesting
enough. The musical part of the programme is iu the hands of the lately
formed string-band, and they will
make their debut iu publio to night
with a choice repertoire, Tho vocal
music will bo given by n gentleman
who has sung with tho greatest success
in opera aud concert in Toronto and
tho provinces, and ho will sing several
eougs never given in public boro be*
foro. Whon it is remembered that it
is practically "homo talent" that will
perform on tho boards to-night, and
that thoy gavo a highly successful,
though poorly ntteuded entertainment
last time, whicli they woro BBked to
repeat, but didn't, thero is somo reason for tho expocting a good audience.

Mr. W. F. Anderson, who has been
for some years engaged in mining operations iu the Cariboo district, is in
the city. Mr. Anderson, with a partner, Mr. Smith, located 1200 feet of
placer ground on Snowshoe oreek aa
far buck aa 1882, and after aomo years
of continuous preliminary work the
lirm were ablo, in 1880, to commence
taking out gold. Each season since
then they have continued operations
with satisfactory pecuniary results to
themselves. Snowshoe creek ia only a
small stream fed by the buows on the
mountains, and generally there is not
water enough to operate tho hydraulic
machinery for more than two months
in the year. In tho threo yean that
they havo been engaged they have
only washed out about 150 feet of the
1200 feet they run, yet that haB yielded
the firm excellent results, showing the
richness of the ground. Mr. Anderson has with him n nugget weighing
14 ozs., and worth $250, which ho
took out of his claim. There is a good
deal of work going on in the Cariboo
district, and besides the placer mining
the quartz leads aro beginning to be
developed. Tho Black Jack Company
is getting out considerable ore, which
will average about 817 to tho ton. It
is estimated thut the total output this
year in the district will approximate
from $250,000 to §300,000.— News-
