NOTES AKD COMMENTS.
The Ute Dr, J. P. Durbm bad no
patience with advertising in the
pulpit, He always read notices
before doing anything else; and then
when they were disposed of he
would say; "We will now begin
the worship of God," putting a
slight accent on tbe word  "now."
THE SAMOAN DISASTER
Sir Edwin Ohadwick, who has
just been knighted by Queen Vic
toria, is the oldest man ever admitted into the ranks of chivalry,
being in his 91st year. He wrote
an article for the Westminster Review
sixty years ago, and his whole life
seems to have been passed on committees, councils, congresses, commissions, and conferences in connection with the English Social
Science Association.—Ex.

The Portland Oregonian says:
"A good story is told about a man
on the east side who has twelve
acres of land to sell. He asked
$650 per acre, and finally found a
purchaser at that figure. His wife,
however, refused to sign the deed,
and the sale was off. Then he
offered the land for $1,000 an acre
and again a purchaser was found,
and again the good wife exercised
her loyal prerogative and refused to
sign the deed. The property iB now
for snle at (20,000 for the twelve
acres. Fortunate is the man who
possesses a wife who knows how to
refuse to sign deeds judioiously; her
valuo is greater than rubies; yea,
verily, above fine gold.
Speaking of the recent address at
the Eighty Olub, the Star, ot London, says that there is always something intensely dramatic and
picturesque about the appearence
of Lord Rosebery. Somehow or
other, when one looks at the impassive face—surmounted by those
strange eyes—cold and warm,
inscrutable and eloquent, dull and
sparkling—ono inevitably thinks of
those weird heroes of Balzac that out
their way to fame by sheer dint of
courage, coolness, audaoity, and"
adaptability, Hii speech waa a
delight. It flowed over with fun,
sharp hits, adroit and dexterous
phrases, and everybody giggled in
that subdued fashion whioh is the
etiquette at Eighty Olub dinners.
Never has Lord Rosebery made a
more successful little speeeh,
Sam Jones is declaiming against
the. sins of San Francisco, and has
riled the San Francisco Chronicle
man pretty badly, as the following
shows: It is » poor commentar,

people that the Mechanics' Pavilion
should be crowded by thousands
eager to listen to tho talk of the
revivalist mountebank, Sam Jones.
This man's motives may be
of the best, but his narrow-
minded bigotry, his sectional prejudices and his coarse language are a
dlsgraco to the sacred profession to
which he claims to belong. He surpassed himself yesterday in his
abuse of California!*!, hia sweeping
charges against San Francisco
morality and his bitter attacks on
New England. Hia statement that
free thought in Boston had ended
in free love was as foul a lie as his
statement that every other place in
San Francisco waa a saloon or an
assignation-house. San Francisco
does not lay any great claim to
superior virture or morality, but it
is free from the vices of cant, hypocrisy and false witneaa againit iti
neighbors, of which Sam Jones
oonvicts himself every time he opens

ACCIDENTS AT SEA.
London, Mar. 30—Tho numerous
disasters and collisions which have oc-
cured recently along tho cnaata of
Great Britain, have reopened the question as to whether any precaution is
taken to uacortain tho integrity of
sight and color vision among sailors of
tho mercantile marino. An official of
the department of the board of trade,
who has jurisdiction in suoh matters,
said this afternoon: "It is extremely
important that attontion should be
drawn to this matter, because even if
a man has satisfactorily passed the vision test, preparatory to signing articles, he may still subsequently lose
koeness of sight, and become in addition, to all intents and purposes, color
blind. The cause which leads to this
untoward condition of things is invari-
bly the abuse of tobacoo. The disorder is known to opthalmio surgeons as
"tobacco amblyopia," and the worst
feature of the case is thst the man
himself is unable to appreciate the serious loss he hu sustained in color perception, while even his failure ot vision doss not at first attract hit attention. Green, and red the two colors
of all others with which he has to deal,
become in advanced oases altogether
imperceptible. A alight nleotion,
however, will show that to place such
a man in a lookout's position, perhaps
on account of his previous good record
for sight, would be unquestionably to
oourt disaster. When, however, it is
•.mimbered how much th. safety of
ships in crowded throughfarss at sea
depends upon the good. sight of the.
sailors, expediency alone would'suggest the urgency of submitting the
crews to a peridodical examination of
tho visHHiand oolor sense, and the
secretary of the board of trade will-
shortly issue an order directing thst
such examinations should be held."

In tho absence of the Rector, Rev.
Phillip Woods preached at Holy Trinity Ohuroh yesterday morning, taking
ior his text II Corinthians, VI chapt*
and 1st verae: We then as workers together with Him, beseech you also that
yo receive not the grace of God in vain.
-'This the fourth Sunday in Lent is
commonly called "Refreshment Sun-
day" and naturally we think of grace;
and this morning I would like to talk
to you ol the great grace of God. We
have a new life in Jesus and John tells
us we must bring forth good fruit or be
eut down and thrown into the fire.
-Receive not the grace of God in vain';
or itr other words when you receive it,
see that you make good use of it. If
we say <te have no sin, ssith the Lord,
we deceive ourselves snd the truth is
not in us. Sin separates us from God,
and wilful and unrepented sins must
•nd in etemsl separation. If we then
are separate from God, how can we be
bound to him again ? By grace oan we
be saved through faith 1 We must repent ; God gives us forgiveness of our
sins freely, bnt he requires true repentance. Forgiveness means we con
again be united with God. As wo need
forgiveness so do we require strength
every day of our lives to help ui obey
our Father's will. We may be restored
to God's grace and favor, but this is not
enough, we must continue on the path
ofpeuitenco. We need the gift of
God's saving graco, and God gives this
in several ways; by tho Sacrament,
the Holy Ghost, baptism aud confirmation. In the Holy Communion we
receive tho gift of saving grace through
the bread and wine, which is for the
strengthening aud refreshment of the
body and soul. For it is by the power
of the Holy Spirit we are enabled to
receive the body and blood of Jesus
Christ. -Ho who esteth my flesh and
drinketh my blood shall have eternal
life.' In order to make a worthy communion we must make a complete separation from sin. Except a man be
baptized ho cannot be saved, and unless man be born again he cannot see
the throne of God. We have then in
these a means of saving grace. There
is no end of God's grsoe and He is willing to supply it, and you need never
ask in vain. Let us ever he on our
guard of receiving His grace hi vain,
by resolving to resist and overcome
temptation. If we try io do this honestly, the better we will succeed. God
gives us gifts and he expects us to
mske uso of them, so let us endeavor
to receive the graoe and to receive it
not iu vain." 1
BAPTIST CHURCH.
At the Baptist church yesterday
morning Rev. Mr. Porter, of London,
Ont., occupied the return and preached from 27 Matthew part 61 verse.—
"Behold, the veil of the temple was
rent in twain from the top to the b it-
torn,"—and spoke substantially as follows: In the 9th ohap. of Hebrews the
apostle Paul apeaks of the tabernacle
aa a figure of the true, and using the
parts as illustrations, especially as referring to Josus Christ, he takes th)
old and material things ss stepping
stones and thus leads the people np to
higher and better things. Let us follow the apostle this morning. Where
ever you find the word oenold in the
bible, it ia there to arrest your attention to son-thing of special import and
here, thus prefaced, the attention of
men for all time ia called to the closing
scenes ol the crucifixion where, while
heaven and earth witness, the veil of
the temple all at once is seen to part.
Here the rev. gentlemen graphically
piotured the veil of the temple, in ita
minutest details, which was so sacred
that uo one onpainof death was allowed
lo enter exoept the high priest, and he
only on the day of atonement. One
specially favored individual, slowly,
cautiously and with sacred step, enters,
and thne stood in the presence of the
Most High lo minister for himself and
his people. So sacred and solemn wu
the place that this favored one must
prepare himtelf with blood, A time
came, the most uonentous one in the
world's history, when Jesus, suspended
betwixt heaven and earth, drinks in
the last drop of agony, and under the
torrible suffering expires, and, amid,
tho manifestations of divine power,
behold! behold! tho veil is rent, not by
any sgenoy on the earth, but from the
top to the bottom an invisible hsnd
rends it apart and opens up the holy
of holies in the temple. This suggests
two or. three things:—1st, That in and
through the death of Christ God revealed what nevor wss, or could be,
understood before. Men of knowledge
hsd stretohed their necks trying to
peer into the wisdom of God. AU
God's,word portrayed hia greatness,
his power, his glory; but amid the
many manifestations of these, alt the
world, instesdof finding Him out, had
lost their knowledge of Him, and disowned Him up to the time of Christ's
crucifixion. Prophets had certain
things revealed to them, and as they
were instructed they wrote; yet they
understood not, it wu not for them to
know, the full import, but for other,
who ihould live afterward. Angel,
ware baffled, hemmed in by a Veil of
dark-ins, and it wu not until God,
through His Son, revealed to them hia
infinite goodness and wisdom
that they understood Him. Never
did the world's eye open to His
goodness and His justice u when
he gave His Son Jesus Christ up
to the death of the cross lor sinful
men. What infinite love. What divine compassion. All flis works praise
Him, but the death of Christ reveals
Hia love and juatiee for a ruined race.
No wonder heaven stoops, sngelsgue
In wondor, and the centurion in fear
declares that "Truly, truly this is the
Son .1 God." Thus to-day we gather
together in our sanctuary and contrast
what has gone before; the veil parts
and rolls back, and the mother with
her child, tho teacher with the scholar
and the Christain by the way side can
understand; no longer do we stand
without, but look in, enter in, in to the
fullness of tho liberty otthe Son of
God, and glorioua is the light and experience.   Again I would call to your
attention that ihe rending of the veil
suggests tbat any, aU sre allowed
not only to look but to enter. Jesus
Christ u a saviour, had two thoughts,
two phases of work to accomplish, to
put away sin, ahd to bring us nigh,
and as people we need riot stand without, but as Paul, having boldneu in
the liberty through Him who hu loved us, we can come nigh ud enter;
the vilest may come, and thi. morning there is ringing out over hill sod
valley tho invitation to Mme, since
Jesus died the obstaolu ar* broken
down, the difficulties are out of the
way, and only ono thing separate that
ia sin, and .hen God stood over Juus
Christ on Calvary, laying our iniquities
upon Him, pouring into Hll soul th.
grief of a lost race until His heart
broke, His Spirit fled, and iu th. utterance of his lut words, "It li finished," the scheme of redemption wu complete end the tabernacle ia open to the
whole world and now you and I may
do u the high priest, waah in th. blood
.nd enter in. The rending of th. veil
suggests the levelling up of humanity,
the equalizing of the race. Bin had
a:attered and degraded. Calvary lilti
men op aud mix*. .11 sun mmI in '
the highest sense, giving aU the privilege of going into the presence ot the
Highest and communing with God and
coming forth and scattering benediction, ud love and peace. Angel,
wished for this privilege to minster to
others. Let us appreciate our privileges, aud enter the service of the
Most High so that we may enter the
holy of holies, which is open to one
and to all.
BISHOP SILLITOE'S SPECIAL SERVICES.
The Rt Rev. Bishop Sillitoe pleached lost night in the Oddfellow's Hall
to a very fair and deeply attentive
audience, taking for his text Romans
Sth 0.11th and 14th vs.—"But if th.
Spirit of Him that raised up Juus
from the dead dwell in you, He that
raised up Christ from the dead ahall
also quicken your mortal bodies by
His Spirit that dwelleth in yon. For
u many u are led by the Spirit of God,
they are the sons of God.'1 The Bishop spoke u follows: Dear friends,
looking along the way of nlvaticn,
following the process of Christian edification through two atages, having begun by considering the depth of th.
fall and the corruption of our nature,
we come to the necessity for the turning bsck of the prodigal soul to Gel,
further still, the justification of that,
soul in God's sight by faith in Jesus
Christ; but this is not all, because th.
process so far brings us only up to th.
present hour. Salvation, therefore,
cannot he nid to be assured for us u
yet. There is the whole future of oar
earthly life, with all ita change, ud
chances, withallititerribletemptatlona,
And, dear friends, what soul is than
who does not know, who do« not feel,
and hu not experienced, what that
future ia after conversion and justification 1 Oh, how many souls there are
who, having fallen into evil, hy the
power of the grace of God hav. looked
up witl-, cqntrjte heart and made the
moat earnest resolution for a change of
life, and yet a day wu enough to
breakup that resolution. And so,
neither conversion nor justification,
nor both together, form any guarantees
at all as regards the future. There is
abundance of holy scripture tastlmony
to this fact St Peter, for example,
tells us how it would have heen better
for some not to have known the way of
righteousness than to hav. known .nd
turned therefrom. And we have even
St. Paul contemplating the possibility
that he himself might become a cutaway ; and surely we an not going to
doubt for ouo moment that St. Paul
wu both converted ud justified, 80
you Me tbat we have got to go . atop
further atill than conversion itt order
that the whole wili of God may be
accomplished. And the will of God is
what f Tho Bible tells us, "This is
the will of God, .van your wnctifi-
cation." Sanctification ia, therefor.,
the next step in the way of salvation.
Conversion hu delivered th. soul from
the bondage, justification from th.
condemnation, ot sin, but ain still remains, and never till death will the
soul be completely delivered. Conversion is a change of heart, but not of
nature; the oid nature atill remains,
the nature that lovea to ehoou for it* -
wit, the nature that would always do
what is euy and shirk what ia bard
and what is unpleasut The good
that we would we do not, the nil that
we would not that we do. It ia not
that we are ignorant of what Is right,
but it is that the will ia not strong
enough, while the flesh ia too strong.
"As many u are lid by the Spirit of
God they are the sons of God' It il
the Spirit of God that don th. work
of unctiEcation, and through that
Spirit is wrought Ih. whol. work of
ulration. The work of unctification
the spesker showed wu hind-red by
wilfulness on man's part, instsad ot
which then should he oo-operation
with the Spirit's holy influences ud
impulse. Christ must be taken u the
pattern, whose meat wu not lo do His
own will, but the will of His Father,
who sent him. For our comfort ud
encouragement Christ tell, us, "Tak.
my yoke upon you ud loam of me,
ior my yoke is euy and ny burden is
light,"  May we sll be enabled to do

If JontnaKUio enterprise and success consist in blowing one's own
horn, then it is very hard to say
wliioli will "got thero" first of tho
two Vancouver papers. On Saturday the World announced that it had
just entered upon its second volume
nnd tells its readers that "the World
is an assured success; it iB here, it
has stayed here six months, it likes
the placo und the people, and ib proposes, with their kind assistance, to
stay right here with them always."
Further, its readers ure told that the
World "is devoted to the interests
of the people, fears God, and endeavors to tell the truth," and again
"the circulation this paper has attained iB truly phenomenal.    *   *
* Its street sales nlone are known
to reach a greater average than the
entire edition of its local cotemporary. * * * Tho weekly World,
it is believed1, has today the largest
circulation of any publication iu
British Columbia. * * * By
leaps* and bounds it is leaving its
rivals far behind in the race for pub*
lio approval." Yesterday (Sunday)
the New-Advertiser has its littlo
blow, in fewer words, perhaps, but
it "gets there just the same." The
increase, during the last few months
particularly, "both in tho circulation
i and the advertising patronage of
'■ tho ^Ms-Advertiser has been a
most satisfactory proof of tho
favor with whicli this journal is
regarded by the people of Vancouver,
New Westminster and the province generally. Its advertising
columns (showing a patronage of
nearly double tlmt possessed by any
Other paper in the province) are a
proof of the general belief that it is
the best advertising medium, while
the rapid growth of its  circulation
* * * has placed it in the lead
of all the papers in the provinco in
this respect." In the face of these
astounding declarations, what can a
modest journal liko The Columbian
do but oxclaim "Oh, my!" as each
fresh disclosure of its rivals' greatness is proclaimed, and meekly
udmit that it hasn't got uriy circu--
lotion or advertising patronngo at
all!      	
President Harrison's administration, inaugurated so recently with ft
great flourish of trumpets, is not giving general satisfaction- iti'the very
difficult   matter of  appointments.
' This is hardly to  bo expected, for
where there are so many office-seekers somo must needs be disappointed.
But, making duo allowance for the
unavoidable, a good   many of   the
now appointments are not such as a
free una yet responsible administration would make in  tho  publio interest, but, on the contrary, a slavish
concession seems to havo been made
to hereditary dolts and party favorites,    Several notable, not to say
scandalous, examples can' bo given.
The important position of minister
lo England has been filled by Robert
Lincoln, not so much on account of
his ability and fitness (which is only
!   mediocre), as because he is the son
of his father, who was a giant in his
'    day; but the sons of great men, experience shows, generally servo as a
foil to enhance the paternal lustre.
Another   important    appointment,
- filled by u  hereditary and  party
•favorite, and still more unfittingly,
is that of minister to Austria, the
appointee-being Fied Grant, son of
the late Ulysses S.,: '.but nothing
more,   particularly.    An   appointment, which is criticized most severely, and justly, wo think, by a nonpartisan American journal, is that
of Mr. Walker Blaine, son of  the
new secretary of slate (a question-
"  able cabinet appointment to begin
with), to the position of examiner of
claims in the department of state,
The most  delicate portion of  the
duties of his department is the cure-
ful and searching scrutiny of olniuis
of American citizens against foreign
states.    By the custom of nations a
government  is bound to make the
.' just claims of  its citizens it. own.
It is the only agency through which
those   claims can bo presented and
' enforced, and  lliey necessarily in.
-reive  the possibility of using the
Whole power of the government to
secure' justice.   On that account it
rj ts imperative that the government
' ihould take the utmost precautions
I  to be sure th-rt the claims are just.
For this purpose they should bo submitted to tile itudy of  competent,
ttoroughly-trained,  impartial   person) of established reputation deserving the confidence not only of the
:  atate department, but of the country.
The journal mentioned above adds:
■ "It- is oiilyvHjeded to enumerate

It wai disgust I on the part of the
better claw of Republicans with the
corruption nnd civil servico abases
of their party that hail a large share
in the defeat of the Republicans and
the election of Cleveland a littlo over
four years ago. If the Harrison administration keeps up its record, so
inauspiciously begun, there will be
a large increase of Republican "mugwumps,'^ and the Campaign of 1884
maybe repeated in 1802,Withthe
samo result.
An interesting ecclesiastical trial,
begun in February, lias been edifying
the English public recently.    This
is the trial of Dr. King, the Bishop
of Lincoln, before the archbishop of
Canterbury aud five bishops noting
as assessors, for alleged illegal practices in connection with the administration of the Holy Communion,
the  specific acts mentioned in the
citation being substantially (1) the
uso Of the altar lights;   (2) of the
mixed chalice;  (3) and (4) of the
eastward position; (5) causing the
"Agnus Dei" to be sung immediately
after the prayer of  consecration;
(6)niaking the sign of the cross during the absolution and benediotion;
and (7) "ceremouially" making the
ablutions, all of' whioh are declared
by the promoters of the suit to be
"ceremonies in addition to end other
than ceremonies prescribed by the
Book of  Common  Prayer."   The
prosecution has aroused intense interest in England, says an exchange,
not only by reason of the issue raised
in  the  indictment, but because of
the novelty, of the whole proceeding.
It is nearly two hundred years since
the last previous  trial of  this sort
was held in England, and, in fact,
this is only the second timo since
the reformation that a bishop of the
province of Canterbury has been
summoned   to  appear   before  his
metropolitan   to answer charges of
his  alleged  illegal practices.   The
tribunal whose aid  is invoked is of
somewhat  obscure   origin,   dating
back   before  the reformation.   In
tbe middle  ages , similar cases were
tried  by the archbishop, sitting ns
metropolitan, but the only instnnco
of the exeroiso of' suoh jurisdiction
since then is that- furnished by the
celebrated trial   of. Bishop Watson
by Archbishop Tenison for simony
in   the  reign of William III.   In
that case, in spite of appeals to the
court of king's benoh and the houso
of lords, the archbisliop's authority
was upheld, and   the' accused was
finally deprived and excommunicated.   Owing   to   the   fact that tho
diocesan machinery for the trial of a
priest  or  deacon provided by the
later ohuroh discipline acts is wholly
inapplicable in the case of a bishop,
Dr. King's prosecutors have been
obliged to fall back upon Watson's
case  as a precedent.   In June of
last year the churoh association pe-
tioned the Archbishop of Canterbury
to hear the charges.   He, however,
waa unwilling to assume tho responsibility of doing so, and replied that
he must  first  be satisfied that tho
jurisdiction, if exercised, would be
recognized as valid by law.   Application was   therefore made to the
privy counoil to have this point definitely settled, and  the whole question was  elaborately argued beforo
live lay judges and five bishops. The
result was  a  unanimous decision
that the jurisdiction of  the archbishop  to try such a case was perfectly valid, und must bo recognized
ub part of the existing law of  the
church and the realm.   It was nlso
intimated that if his grace declined
to hear the suit himself it would be
tried elsewhere.   Archbishop Benson determined, therefore, to undertake   tho  unpleasant task, and in
doing so to follow, in every relevant
detail, the precedent of Bishop Watson's trial, complete records of whicli
are still in existence, though unpub
lished,   The archbishop is the sole
judge in  the case, but he has tho
assistance of his vicar general, Sir
James Parker Deane, Q.O., a learned
ecclesiastical lawyer, who will give
him auch legal advice as ho may require. The bishops of London, Winchester, ; Rochester,   Oxford/ and
Salisbury also sit with him aa asses-

TIMING FLYING SHELLS.
How Uncle Bam Finds Oat Juat
How They Go.
Tlie Uuulcnge Chronographs and Bow It
Is   Oporuted-What a  Velocity of
Twenty-One Hundred Feet Per
Minute Really Means.
" Around the world tn twenty hours?"
"You don't mean It."
" I do. That's just what a velocity of 2,100
feet per second means, and that Ib what this
gun will do for a Becond or two as suro as
guns are guns." j
So spoke one of my naval friends as he
pointed to a gun long and slender as a telescope, writes an Annapolis (Md.) correspondent to tho New York World.
"Buthow can you measure any velocity
as great as thatl"
"Easilyenough,",asserted the scientific
young sea-dog. "Just wait until we get this
fellow into position, and you shall see for
yourself how the thing is done."
Thus It came to pass that one morning, In
answer to a note from my friend, 1 found
myself landed on tho long, rickety wharf of
tho naval proving ground at Annapolis. A
lens warlike-looking place it would be hard
to imagine. Two unpretentious framo buildings on a small hill, a barn, a bit of swamp
and a farm-house; but tho stars aud stripes
floating from a flag-polo marked It as Uncle
Sam's private property. I dived into the
larger of the two buildings. Through tho
open door I saw on my right a largo uncar-
peted room from which my friend called to
me to como In. On the walls wore cases
with guns, pistols and odd-looking instruments, a desk, a big table, a photographic
outfit and three massive wooden pedestals
on which stood instruments, eaoh of which
an officer was busily engaged In adjusting.
"Theso are Boulengo chronographs," Bald
my friend, adding: "Wo* ore going to fire
just as soon as that schooner gets out of
range,"
"Firo what!" Baid I, for I sow nothing
except some small arms. "The gun you
saw last week," retorted he, and then somebody outside sung out: "Stand by!"
Tho somebody was a Lieutenant, with a
big rod flag In one hand and a binocular in
tho other.
"Ready, Al" "Ready, Bl" "Ready, CI"
called out tho three officers in rapid succession, w «*i flash, rottio, down camo the rods
of tho chronographs. Bang! whizz-rush
roar I and way out ia tho Chesapeake I
could see tho splash, splash of the shot
miles away.
"A3,108," said some one, and turningl
saw the throo officers bonding over tho
table, eaoh carefully measuring a steel rod
about twenty inches long, its wholo length
nearly covered by a thin zinc cylinder. "B
2,110," "0 8,113," they announced in turn,
which was entered iu big books, the rods
were again measured and the entries
checked.
"Now," said my friend, "let mo present
you to my follow-workera and explain this
mystery." t'Lookoutthorel" "Outthero'"
some hundred yards, away was a shed with
somo six or eight guns of various sizes and
shapes, all pointing towards a heavy butt of
earth one hundred yards from them. Botween tho guns and tho butt wore open
wooden frames, like big picture frames,
. with wire laced baok and forth across thorn,
while hore and thore ran telegraph wiros
which finally entered tho room in which we
wero and connected with the chronographs,
"Now," said my friend, "hore is the
wholo thing in a nutshell, Thoso chronographs consist of a couplo of electro-mag-
not- and a little spring knife. The upper
niuguot holds tho long, zinc-covered
rod; tho second holds a short steel rod.
Tho gun boing flrod, the shot cuts tho wire
ln tho noaroBt frame, or screen, as it is technically callod, and so breaks tho circuit of
tho upper electro-mngnot, allowing tho long
rod to fall. Whon tho shell readies tho seoond screen, tho ono furthest from tho gun,
It breaks tho circuit of tho second electromagnet, thus allowing tho shot-rod to fall.
This, aftor falling a short distant, strikes
tho trigger of tho spring knlfo, Tho knifo,
boing .released, flies forward and makes a
dent tn the zinc on the long rod, and so we
can measure tho distance the long rod has
fallen before the knife marks it and as this
space bears a distinct ratio to the time,
ond as the timo is exactly tiffs-takon- by tho
shot in passing ovor the known distanco botween tho screens, we know tho time and
henoo the shell's velocity per second.'
"But does not the short rod occupy somo
time in falling and does not tho knlfo tako
somo Uttle time in striking tho rod J" asked I.
" So it docs, and the way wo got round
that is this." Here ho hung both rods to
their magnets. "Sea this koy. If I press
it I break simultaneously tho circuit of both
magnots and release both rods at ono and
the samo time. Thus," and pressing tho
key, down feU tho rods. " Now seo this
mark on tho zinc. That is the mark mado
by the knlfo, aud is coiled tho 'disjuuclor
reading,' ond it's from this mark that we
measure the distanco that tho long rod
falK At any rato, that ts tho result practically, we tako the diffcronco between the
disjunotor reading and tho reading given by
tho shot, which gives tho distance between
tho two marks, and, as I said before, if we
know the distance a body falls wo know tho
time it was in falling ond, consequently, the
timo taken by tho shot in going over tho
known diBtanco between tho two Bcrecns.
We use the threo chronographs as checks
upon eaeh other; thoy aro aU connected
with the same screens and should glvo tho
some result The mean of the throo is
token as the actual velocity, Thon, too, If
wo hod only the ono It might fail to aot, and
o shot would bo wasted, and as this costs
for the olght-inch riflo about Bixty doUars a
shot it is Quito a consideration, even to
Uncle Bom, Now I beUevo I havo told you
all thoro Is tolt"
"But that shell did not go through that
young mountain of oarth you aro pleased to
coll a butt beforo it wont skipping along tho
bay, did ttt"
"No, tho gun was sighted so as Just to
cloar the butt, and the shell was fired with
oviow of determining its range,  There aro
a couple of observers stationed out noar Bay
Ridge who mark on a plane tablo the lino
through the first splosh of the shot Tho
intersection of this lino on a chart with tho
lino obsorvod here, gives tho point whoro
tho shot struck, ond so wo mcosure tho distance."       ______________

There resides with her daughter, Mrs,
Mary Arkins, at Oreenoostlo, a nature's

of rounding up his first century. Tho latter was in his ninety-eighth year. Another
brother, Thomas Cooney, oldor to James,
waudoredoff to Australia in early life and
his last ond is unknown, In 1830, by the
death of hor husband, Michael MoMahon, to
whom sho was married tn 1815, Bho was left
a tenant of o one hundred-aero farm hi
County Clare, the proporty of Thomas and
John Cahill Ber. rental was forty pounds

herself and withal a skillful manager, Bho attended, fairs ond markets
to dispose of hor farm products, ond battled
bravely for hor family's soko for fourteen
years, throo of which wero yoars of terrible
fumine, ending at last with tho harvests of
1810, In 1858, however, sho turned her faco
toward America, the Und of plenty and potatoes, settling first In Now Albany, Ind.,

Surrey Delegation.
■ Mr. Jas. Punch, reeve of Surrey
municipality, and Coun.' John Armstrong, went down to Victoria to-day
as a dclogation from Surrey to urge
upon the government the claims of
their municipality to an extra appropriation for necessary road work beyond the means of tho corporation to
undertake. As a considerable part of
Surrey. is wooded, making tlie road
work heavy, and the municipality obtained a large number of new r settlers
last year, and an increased number are
reasonably expected during the present year, on account of the impetus
given by tho Southern Railway, we
think that tho government should
favorably consider tho request of the
delegation,

HerlouH Accident.
On Saturday evening about 0 o'clock
an old lady named Mrs Heiinesey,
while proceeding along Columbia street
missed her footing and fell into the excavation being made for -, the foundation for Mr, Sheriff Armstrong's new
block. Although no bonoB were broken, Mrs. Hennesey received severe in-
I'uries, and whioh will confine her to
led for a time. The great wonder is
that the fall did not result fatally. She
was carried homo and received proper
medical attendance. It is about time
the board nf works insisted ou all contractors taking proper precautions for
the safety of foot passenger.* where
excavations aro being made or whero
lumber is piled ou tho streets. The
Columbian has many a timo pointed
out tho danger arising from the carelessness exhibited in conneotion with
building operations, and it is to he
hoped now that a serious accident has
occurcd some steps for the better safety of tho publio will be taken.

*' The manner of loading cattle on to tho
steamers calls for a change of some
sort. Some fifty spectators to the attempts of a number of -men to drive a
fow stubborn cattle aboard the steamer
Princess Louise this afternoon wero
almost sickened at the brutality used.
Stlclts of two and three inches in thick*
ness wero smashed on .the poor animals backs, and tho goad was so f roely
and barbarously used that the blood
dripped from thoir bodies to the
ground. The Columbian has called
attention to this cruelty before and it
must bo almoat timo that somo nf our

So the Lillooet bridge is complete.
Why, it should have been built i half a

sonville wero in their bloom. But the
government could not do justice at
tho proper time. There are many
things in this world that always come

AC ate Trick.
It haa boen loarnsd that the Chinaman who disturbed the alumbo rs of a
newspaper man this morning, v-hile in
search of a lawyer, wanted to j;et out
a capias to arrest a fleecing debtor,
who was on the boat leaving :for tho
north. Not being able to get the necessary document, the' Ohinami.n employed a fellow countryman to g o down
to the boat and kick up a row with the
decamping debtor, when both parties
were arreated by the police, and now
tho creditor has the bulge on tho subject of his solicitude. Leave a China-
msn alone to get the best ot any ono
who tries to fleece bho ont of the almighty dollar.—Standard of 80th.     ■
Jamos L. Sprouster who wns last
weok remanded on charge of stealing
two $20 lulls und sume smaller money
appeared boforo Captain Pittendrigh
this morning inthe district court and
was discharged, as tho evidence against
him was not sulBetuiit .fora conviction.
At thrt saniK tiihfci'tHtf -fbagfslrato expressed tho opinion 'that there was no
moral doubt as to his guilt. As Sptous-
ter waa about to walk away Chief
Pearce ro-arrcsti-d hiin on the charge
of stealing from ouo Joseph Taya, at
Port Mnody/on'WttfiBut the 15th day
of March, n gold chilli-, -*goW rings, a
gold look •Arid'*'sGllll'tHtf'whttb valued
a* $107. Mr. Tayfc guru evidence to
losing thoae articles all of which were
either stamped or marked in such a
way as to prevent any failure in their
identification. A ring and the chain,
looket and seal were produced by Chief
Pearce and identified by Mr. Taya aa
his property. Chief Pearce gave evidence to finding tho ring in Sprouster's
hat, where it was cunningly hid in the
lining. The locket, seel" and chain
were handed over to the police by Mrs.
Levi, who had advanced $5 to the
prisoner on them. Sprouster tried to
make put that Mr. Toys had lent him
tho chain, but thia was indignantly denied. Captain Pittendrigh committed
Sprouster to stand his trial at the next
assizes. Somo half dozen robberies of
a similar nature to this have occurred
in Port Moody during the last fow
months, and though Sprouster has been
suapoctcd nothing could bo proved
againat him, and ho would probably
have escaped justice but for Chief
Pearce's careful search of the prisoner's
person.
Fi-Aser Blver Navigation.
Tho resolution referring to the building of tho O. P. R. bridge across tho
Fraser River at tho Mission, introduced by Mr. Ladnar yesterday, deserves aome attention. It is not often
that a member of the opposition brings
forward a matter containing so muoh
that is of interest to the community.
If Mr. Ladnor's information is correct,
the plana for thu bridge in question
cull for » space on either side of the
swing uf but sixty feet. Thla would
give but a Blight leeway for tho passage uf tho steamer especially whon it
is considered that tho current ia rapid
at this point, and would bo mndo moro
so by the rush uf water past tho centre
pier and side piling. ' But when, as is
almoat every day tho cose, scows are
lashed to the stern-wheel steamer
there would not be sufficient room for
two to pass. A side-wheel steamer of
the width of the Yosemite would be
unable to pass at all. The construction of the bridge ns at present proposed, would thus result in the placing
of a serious obstruction to the safe and
proper navigation of the river. It is
not necessary to question tho motives
that prompted tho 0. P. R. authorities
thus to obstruct river navigation.
There wero undoubtedly of a selfish
character, probably for the purpose of
forcing traffio by rail instead of by
steamer, which would result to the
serious detriment of tho trade of West*
minster oity, nnd tu the disadvantage
of the whole district Tho resolution,
bringing tho attention of the federal
government to the matter, was passed
unanimously by the houw, and this
action, combined with the efforts of
various municipal bodies in Westminster distriot, will no doubt result in
the increase of the spaces tn one hundred feet in width, which, it is considered, will bo equal to any emergency.
This is the width of the swing on the
E. & N. Railway bridge over Victoria
harbor, and it is unt ton large forthe
traffio. The Canadian Pacific authorities nsk a great deal, and generally
take considerably moro than is granted, but in the Mission bridgo matter
they apparently want a great deal
toiore than is reasonable.—OblonuL
