"Shall women JuitffeeT is tho
latest question which is troubling
the British nation We say no,
decidedly. You can't prevent her
from firing up occasionally, but we
can never permit her to smoke.—Ex.
Mr. Oscar Wilde recently called
on :i lady who had just received a
lot of Japanoso screens. "You
have come just in time," she said
"to help ino arrange them." Oh,
don't arrange them," lie replied,
"let them occur!"
Perhaps no newspaper writer was
ever more disturbed by a trifle than
was the society reporter who, in
describing the belle of a recent
fashionable party, intended to say
"she looked au fait," but found it
"she looked nil feet."
A journal devoted to household
matters tells "htfw to carve a fowl
without gotting it off tho plate."
Another good way is to drill a hole
through tno fowl, plate, ond table,
nnd then iiifort an iron rod in the
aperture, and screw a large nut on
each ond, This obviates the necessity
of the amateur carver placing one
foot on the breast of the bird and
the other on the chair.
Robert Louis Stevenson, the
novelist, whose ill health—said to
have been duo to cigarette smoking
—necessitated his long yachting
cruise, is reported to havo overcome
his desire for tobacco in thnt baneful
form and to bo much improved
physically in consequence. It is
also known that F, Marion Crawford, the author, was also a victim
to that habit, which, however, he
successfully overcame.
Ib is asserted that upon the
return of Henry M. Stanley to
England he will be naturalized as a
British subject, forsaking his American adoption, nnd that the government will confer upon him higher
honors than have ever been before
conferred upon a journalist or an
explorer, which two professions
Stanley combines. It is stated thut
tho Belgian government will join in
decorating and otherwise honoring
Stanley. It might not bu a bad idea
to natch Stanley before making very
elaborate preparations to "decorate"
him.
A recent circular issued by the
United .States Treasury Department
proposing to ship, freo of charge, to
persons desiring them, nickels and
pennies in certain quantities, on
receipt of the face value, has suggested some enquiries in regard to
the cost of theso coins to the United
Statos, and how it is that they can
allord to ship them at par value,
paying express charges upon them.
The result of these enquiries has
been tho discovery that the nickel
costs at tlie mint less than three-
quarters of a cent, whilo it is put
in circulation at the value of live
cents.
A man down in Nova Scotia lias
been heavily fined for sending false
news to a local paper. The magistrate before whom the caso came
pointed out how much the proprietor
of a uewpapors depended upon the
good faith of his informants in localities where he might have no personal knowledge to guide him. The
practical joker or malicious falsifier
who may think it rather a clover
thing to take in a newspaper in this
way will for the future be wise in
remembering that it is a dangerous
game to play, evon if the editor is
neither pugnacious nor a good shot.
Wlmpire.        	
Some railroad man has given to
the world what he knows on this
subject in the following : "A sleeper
is ono who sleeps. A sleeper is that
in which the sleeper sleeps. A
slcepor is that on which the sleeper
runs whilo the sleeper sleeps. There
fore, while the sleeper sleeps in the
sleeper the sleeper carries the sleeper
over the sleeper under the sleeper
until the sleeper which carries tho
sleeper jumps the sleeper aud wakes
the sleeper in the sleeper by striking
the sleeper under the sleeper, on
tho sleeper, and there is uo longer
any slcoper sleeping in ihe sleeper
on the sleepor."
A Mongol fable is as follows ;
Two geese, when about to start
southward ou their autumn immigration, wero entreated by ft frog to
take him with them. On the geese
expressing their willingness to do so
if a means of conveyance could be
devised, the frog produced a stock of
strong grass, got tho two geese to
take it, one by each end, while he
clung to it by hts mouth in the middle. In this manner the three wero
making their journey successfully
when they were noticed by some
men, who loudly oxpressed their
admiration of the devico and wondered who had beon clever enough
to discover it, The vainglorious
frog, opening his mouth to say, "It
was I," lost his hold, fell to the
earth, nnd was dashed to pieces.
Moral,-—-Don't let prido induce you
to speak when safety requires you
to bo silent.

Grain at once sent orders to tho department of public works and that depart-
nioiit expecting tho order, in anticipation thereof had a large furon of
axemen and laborers on hand. Hundreds of people gathored in the vioinity
of Union Square and 14th street, in
which locality the work of cutting
down the poles was inaugurated. The
p'ile cutters were divided into two
gangs. Que gang attacked the poles
on one sido of tho street while the
■ other gang paid its respects to those
on tho opposite side.' Another corps
of axemen waa sent alonir ©tli avenue

THE ATLANTIC FAST SERVICE,
London, April 15.—Regarding, the
Atlantic mail contract to replace tho
Messrs. Allans' contract which expired
last Thuradayt it is understood that a
representative of the Messrs. Anderson & Co., will shortly leave for Canada on the invitation uf .tbo Domiuiou
government in order to finally arrange
the details of the new contract. Messrs.
Anderson & Co. wore thc(pnly tend-T-

minimum basis of computation Seattle's
population reaches the figuro of 28,360,
which is probably a lower estimate than
a completo census would give to this

Imperial  Kew  has rarely   looked:   .
drearier, than in the damp and. driszle
of Saturday morning.    The scarlet.
uniforms aud tho Coldstream guards
alone relieved the prevailing cheerless*
ness.   Even the humblest spectator
hnd put on decent mourning ont of
respect for the departed mistress of
Cambridge cottage. Never did a crowd  i
bdinvo bettor.   Even itenerant  ven-   -..
dors cried their wares,,and every head'
was uncovered when the hearse arrived
exactly a quarter of ah hour before it   -
was expected. With wonderful celerity    "
the ponderous coffin was placed in the . *
centre of tho low .hull,   the walls of
which were* lined with floral offctiogi.
Tbe generals who wero to follow .the
remains to the grave enteied  silently ,,
one after another.   Counts Haltzpeleft','.,
and Deym arrived almost simult-ine-   ''
onsly.   Hardly a word was exchanged
amongst thechief mourners,and theLord: ■
Chamberlain had scarcely announced
that the queen hsd  taken her .plaoe
when the soldiers raised the- polished   .
oak coilin on their shoulders and bore.
it with  measured  tread  toward'the
churcli while their comrades outside
reverted arms and the band the dead
duchess loved so muoh  to  listen  tu,  -.
played the touching strains of Chapln's
march.   The queen, lojktd far  better .   -.
and stronger than for some time, snid
entirely dispensed with1 the aid of V
f-tick ns she walked briskly up the nar*
r<*w isle:nnd took a pluce to the  right
of the alter.   The services and singing
wero equally impressive.   The £dh
Chamberlain and Vice Chamberlain ..
stin-d between the alter and the coffin..
Gen. Greuvelle- the pall bearers, end
soldierc formed another group  to the
loft.' Just as the stalwart Coldstream
guards woro about to raise the coffin ''
and carry it to tho aperture, the queen   .
placed another wreath and crown. of.
immortelles upon  it.   After  it  had
disappeared  tlie Duke  of Cambridge
kissed the queen's band and she  era-
braced  him  tenderly  on   thu  right
cheek.   The Dtike  and  Duchess  of
Aborcorn, Duchess' of Beaufort- and' -
Baron Ferdinadd.De Rothschild were   "
among   tho    mourners.     Frequent,
changes of the programmo from*' state
to semi-state, and  from  semi-state to -'
modified semii-state,   caused  a great. ....
deal of inconvenience and perpleiity,

Iho question is still under advisement by our oity councillors u to
the expediently of expropriating the
now vacant lot lying between
Oolumbia and Front streets and
belonging to L. Wolff. A perusal
ot the counoil report in another
column will show tbat Messrs.
Lowenberg, Harris ii Oa, on behalf
of the property owners on either
aide of the proposed street, have
offend to pay tlie couuiil 11,000
on condition that tbe snid lot is
expropriated and Mackenzie street
opened through to Front Ihe
result of the discussion in the counoil last night was that the matter
was hid over till next meeting.
Some of the councillors in their remarks showed t misapprehension of
the lituation and the real importance
of Uw queition aa affecting the
future of the eity both immediate
ud remote. No ono will dispute
the necessity that exists  even at
Sresent to have this street opened,
n the near future the urgency of
the case will be yet more apparent
Our municipal councils in the past
have erred by not attending to - this
and similar street improvements,
property for which could have been
expropriated very cheaply. Our
present council, it is to be hoped, will
not pursue the same short-sighted
policy; but, while endeavoring to
make the best terms for the city,
will keep in view the necessity, the
urgency, of malting arrangements
that' will insure this street being
opened, and of doing so at this par-
ticular time. It il not necessary to
say that the present opportunity ii
the most favorable that will ever be
presented.' 'Property is lower now
than it will ever be again in thii
city,aod the lot in queition ii vacant
When once a two or three itory
brick building is erected on the lot,
whioh'tihe ownen have expressed
their intention of setting about immediately, it will be inconceivably
more costly for the city to get a I'
street through, and* this stieH*Slll|l
be proven in the near future' to be a
necessity, beyond question by the
most obtuse. The tine fora hand-
to-mouth, improvident policy for this
city il put. We have luffered sufficiently from what may, very significantly, if not elegantly, be described
as Siwash tactics in the management
of civic affairs. Hereafter,, rocog-
nijing more clearly our possibilities,
our certainties, our assure-} iuai-JV-r
depending in great pert! or coune,
on ourselves—we muit build for the
future as well as for the present.
These remarks will apply to other
civio matter, betides tbe queition
particularly under discussion.

The Victoria Standard ot April
12th unintentionally confirms onr
rera.rk y-sjtetday that Westminster
wu no worn, if as bad, although
lad enough, morally, than her lister
citiei, or cities in genera-. The remark! of the Standard on the subject of the capital city's, morality, or
rather immorality, are worthy of
being reproduced and applied nearer
home s "The moral tone of our fair
city ii a consideration of the mott
vital import.net. Now how.does
that Hand I Is it high I or il it low!
In tiniaipatt, for a man to venture
to assert that the moral tone wai
low wai to bring a pretty lively
breen about hit oan. For a newspaper to do so, wu to bring down
upon itself 'all iti contemporaries
like a pack of wolves. It il not our
present purpose lo assert that Victoria ia worse in a moral pointof view
s American
anSii
■invoke the aervicet of a policeman
and ask to tie shown through the
dives we hare been describing, and,
our word for it, he will' be rudely
undeceived. What is going to be
done about itt Why not form a so
oiety for the protection of our own
species and the suppression of these
moral pesthouses which are sapping
the foundations of the community!
Vancouver, a community of less than
three years growth, would seem to
be shaming Victoria in this respect
New Westminster, too, is awaking
and girding on her armor for the
struggle. Shall Victoria, the chief
city be behind all her sisters in the
praiseworthy struggle for the higher
morality I Wbo will take the load)"
At least twelve counties and two
citiei (Guelph and St-Thomas), in
eastern Canada, have by a recent
vote repealed the Scott Act, which,
in the can of nearly all, was adopted
by good majorities in 1885, when a
temperance wave passed over the
land. In a few of the cases referred
to' the majority for repeal shows
larger than the original majority in
favor of the act. The reason for
this apparent retrogression must be
found elsewhere than in the hasty
and erroneous presumption that a
reaction pf popular sentiment has
taken place in favor of the liquor
traffic. A Winnipeg cotemporary,
the Sun, describe! the lituation very
fairly when it sayi: "The main
difficulty with the Scott Act has
always been the absence of any machinery for its proper enforcement.
The Dominion parliament put the
act npon the statute book, but it
•upplied no machinery to make it
opentive. This duty wu left to the
provincial governments with the result that the work has been very
improperly done, if done at all,"
The Montreal ll'i'tness very pertinently inquires: "What would have
become of the national policy had its
enforcement been left to the provincial governmental The suggestion
ii laughable. The Dominion government lives by the national policy,
and, therefore, sees it enforced; *
*'■*. and any official found lo wink
at any evasion of it would' not hold
hii post a week. What official was
ever dismissed for connivance at
breaches of the Scott law." The
Witness adds: "While we demand
that provision be tnade by authority
for the effective enforcement of
every law on the statute book, and
while we demand that such enforcement ihall not be allowed to flag,
we are fully convinced that no such
enforcement ever will be maintained
till good men come to the conclusion
that the work must practically be
done by themselves, either by forcing
officials to act or by acting in their
place. The abience of private prosecution has proved the death of the
Scott law and will make * failure of
any other license or prohibitory law
whatsoever. It wu because the
8oott Act brought them face to face
with thil disagreeable duty, that
many have thought to shirk*!! hy
throwing wide the law." In other
wordi, comment! the Sun, the argument is advanced that if temperance
people want the Scott Act, or any
other liquor legislation, made operative they must turn informers. Is
thil duty demanded of the manufacturers with respect to violation! of
the protective tariff! Is it demanded
of the individual with respect to the
law against theft or any similar
erimet Certainly not Then why
ihould it be demanded where liquor
prosecutions are concerned I H-the
Scott Aot bu heen a failure, the
fault lies not so much with officials
or with governments, bnt with the
general public; Were the sentiment
of the community u strongly arrayed for the enforcement of this aot,
u it ii of other laws, the official
classes would be compelled to do
their duty; but in the absence of
any such pressure they have been
very glad to avoid a very disagreeable tuk. The work ot educating
the popular mind is not yet completed, and if tho temperance people
hope for success in tbe near future
they will redouble their exertions
along this line. Prohibition itself
will tare little better than the Scott
Act without a healthy moral force
at the back of it..
than the average
nity. But we do unhesitatingly
aver that it present! an ample and
inviting field for the moral reformer-.
Na/, there remains much lo be done
by our civic rulers and police force.
We venture to my tbat most, if not
all, of our goody-goody citisens would
be utonished if tbey oould bt afforded a glimpse of the brothels and
opium dem and those who nightly
frequent then haunt, of iniquity.
Weimogiue the average citisen bu
very little idea ot the number and
character of then dens and of the

nolWwly JULIA'S  BONNET.
I would try to write a sonnet
To my Julia's Sunday bonnet,
ir my muse would aid tbo scbemc-
II my muse would smile propitious
To my ardent wish, ambitious,
To do justice to tbo theme,
I would prulso tbat Uttle bonnet-
Not so mucb for wbat is on It
As I would for wbat It lacks;
Though 'tis quito a dainty cover,
Prottlly bctrimmccl aU oyer
Witb its milliner's bniok-iinocks.
But no sons-bird's little mummy,
Stiffened to a voiceless dummy,
Koatlos 'monc- Hb (limy lace;
And this lack of bird completeness
Lends a look of gentle sweetness
To tbe wearer's pretty face,
Julia bas a gentlo mind,
Julia's beart is true aud kind,
And rvo often beard ber sa;
She would go without a bonnet
Rather tban weur dead birds on it
In such a cruel, heartless way.
I am not a skillful poet—
Those wbo read my verso will know It;
If I bad tho skill I'd mako
famous by my song or Eonnot
Tbat dour- darling little bonnet,
Both for birds* and wearer's sake,

A Graphlo Pioture of a Peoullar
Typo of Humanity.
Mr. Editor, did you over visit ono of thoso
|* humble little homes In Northeast Georgia
I that ncstlo at the foot ot somo spur of the
' Blue Ridgei asks a correspondent of the
I- Athens (Ga.) Banner.
ji' I do not refer to ono of tho prosperous
fann-housos you often see on tho roadsldo,
' where summer tourists aro wont to spend
I tho day or nlnbt; but I mean for you to
V loavo the publio highway, and tallowing ono
of thoso trails that load directly ovor a
mountain ridgo and carry you to a little
■   settlement that seems entirely cut off from
the outside world.
|r During my recent trip through White
h County 1 had occasion to spend tho night at
I one of theso rude homes, ana will endeavor,
i: for tho entertainment of tho readers, to
L draw a pen portrait of it. I do not in my
-. description refer to ono of the wretched
} little huts of one room, whoro hunger and
V misery guard tho door, but to tho abode of
a mountaineer of averago moans and thrift,
,      Tho houso stands in a clearing of some
v i ton or fifteen or twenty acres, comprising a
L narrow strip of bottom land on tho banks of
| a littlo stream or branch, whilo tho rest of
the cultivated ground gently slopes upon
tho niountaiu sido, Tho house is built of
logs, tho cracks cither stopped witli mortar
I mudoof clay or by split boards nailed over
' them.  There are generally two rooms in
tho house, aud tho ono I> am about to do-
scribe had a rudo porch in front, used as a
|..-storage place for agricultural implements,
na uiso a saddle and bridle.  A winding
path of about fifty yards carries you to u
;cold spring, from which tho family bring
their water for domestic purposes,
i  You summon tho lord of this manor at the
: gato by a loud --halloa."   Ho is generally
, "ound in the houso or around the promises
|  ittending to   somo minor  duties.   The
stranger is kindly received and seldom roused shelter and entertainment.   Shortly
ifter I had dismounted and seen my horse
ttlendcd to, two pale, sickly-looking tvomon
•umo tb tho gate, each driving a littlo bull
■uif attached to u plow.    They sccmcO
ihoroughly wearied out, and touched my
•ympathy. They wero dressed In cloth spuu
• nd woven by their own hands. Their heads
voro protected by old-fashioned Bun-bon-
ots, and tholr snocs nadiy worn.   Pretty
;ooii thoy wero joined by a young lnouut-
tlnoor, appparently about twenty-five years
■Id, with au uxe ou his shoulder.   Ho was
j ix feet lull, a remarkably handsome man,
' nd proved to be tho husband of one of the
■c.'omou, whilo the oldorwas his mother. Introductions among this class are unknown,
nd if you wish to know a mau or woman's
ir;o,youoroatporfoct liberty togratify
our curiosity by asking thom tho question,
. I was ns kindly received and treated as
lospttably as their means allowed.
' On entering tho door of the houso I found
yself stunned for an instant by receiving'
severe bloiV upon tho forehead.   I then
i3covercd—what I afterwards found to bo
custom among mountaineers—thatin out*!
*ig tho door, ab least ono moro log should
avo been taken out, and unloss you hum-
ly bow your head you aro reminded of tlio
civility h}1 a bump on tho forohoad.
In spite of tho fact thut tho mountains
iound in wood, you very soldom Hnd u
ood lire.  The wood don't burn as readily
11 tho growth of middlo Georgia, and when
aulod up it is loft exposed to tho rain
alii ready for uso. Thoro is a scarcity of
wirs in most of all the mountain houses,
.ere generally being only enough for tho
\olt members of tho family. The visitor,
•nwevor, la given tlio most comfortable
"-at, whilo tho family find accommodation
.tho beds and boxes in the room. Thej
iiilth of tho mountaineer seems to rest
bed-quilts, and you see theso coverings
Kted up in the cornor of tbe room as high
your head. When theso people have
™-pcrfluous money, Instead of Investing it
Hstocks or bonds,they goto tho nearest
pre and purchase calico with whioh to
ike moro quilts, Whoncono of tho girls
'irries, this is hor principal dowry.  You
id tho room filled with beds, and' thoy
i stuck everywhere it la possible to place
'o. Tbelr literature is of tho crudest
■ad, consisting of several almanacs, dat-
bock a number of years, and perhaps
i or throo odd volumes of old novels, or
well-thumbed   school-book. Tbey are
■ver read, however, for when I opened
b or two of tho books I found on a shelf in
p room, thoy woro covorcd with a thiok
.it of dust, Tho room iB decidedly uncom-
tablo. There aro numerous cracks in tho|
or and walls, through which tho keen;
''ml whistles.
'■i'iio meals aro prepared tn tho othor
'urns at an open flro-placc, whero ia also
,it tbe loom and spinning wheel. You aro
, -on a seat at tho table, but tho chair you
i *upy is so low that your plate is about on
ovcl with your chin, and eating is a deadly disagreeable  undertaking.    You
■p given a greasy eld knlfo, with ono sido
itho handlo brokon off, and ajfork with a

Tho next morning on asking your bill you
will ilod tho invanahlo charge to be—it matters not what was your fare or accommodations—twonty-flvo cents for each meal, bod
and horse feed.
Tho mountaineer cares very littlo ubout
what tbo outside world "is doing, and you
may toll ono a pieco of nows six mouths
old and it will bo fresh to him. They uro
gouerally vory illiterate, fow being ablo to
write their names, and their queer maimer
of speech mysttfios and amuses an educated
person,
As I stated, however, theso people arc
hospitable and kind. Bomo of tho best soldiers in tlio Confederate army were selected
from among thoso mountaineers, and if thoy
woro taught habits of industry and thrift
and properly educated, would make a au-
porior class of citizens.
Of course, in this description I refer only
to tho rudest class of inhabitants of our
mountain counties—the typical moonshiner.
It is, indeed, an interesting and instructive
study to visit tho homos of theae peoplo and
seo how they livo.

Strange Story of the Foar-Lo*r**;etl Romeo
and Juliet of the 1'lulus.
Thoso who havo never visited a Wyoming
cow or horso ranch, especially during tho
winter months, whon tho boys aro "laying
around" wailing for tho spring "round-up,"
and listened to thoir many stories of humorous, but moro often exciting experience
oh the range, couched in a vocabulary peculiar to themsolvos, many words of which
would bo unintelligible to a stranger in tho
country, can havo but littlo idea of tho volumes of unwritten history and romance
thoBo littlo dirt-roofed lbg cabins contain.
After supper wo lit our pipes and sat
around a pleasant-wood fire, whilo without
tho wind howled and moaned drearily, blowing tho snow into tho gulches and drifting
it into great banks on tho east and north
sides of tho surrounding mountains, whoro,
in sheltered places, it would still bo found
far into July,
On this night, of course, tho only thing
talked of was wild horses, says a correspondent of tho St Louis Globc-Dcmoerat.
Hynairson told us of the run ho andPite
Stonor and Carmody had given thom in January, 1855, when thoy ran them, by taking
threo "stations," for ovor ono hundred ond
sixty miles, and got them in tho pasture
just at dark. Carmody having headed and
turned thom only aftor they had run thom
eighty miles, brought thom back and they
"picked thom up," and succeeded in getting
thom iuto tho pasture.
Tho next morning thoy took frosh horses
and corralled and caught?our of the twelve
Too ot tiers jumped tho corral and got
away. Out of theso four they only saved
one, a throc-yoar-old stud that is now down
on Sweetwater. A four-yoar-old baby filly
got away tho third day after tho capture, aud tho other two, a team of match
iron-grays—one a maroand tho otber n stud
camo to a strange and ono might say n
romantic ond. It was noticed by thoso who
had soon tho band running wild that theso
two iron grays always remained togothor,
and, as tho boys put it, woro ••mushed"
on each other.
Theso two horses were tied up separately
and fed hay and had water carried to thom,
but thoy refused to oat or drink and kept
calling and ausworiug each othor. Yot
wbon thoy woro put togothor thoy appeared
contented and ate and drank freely. After
a fow days tho boys decided to break thom,
and named tbo stud "Romeo" and tho
othor *■ Juliet," from thoir attachment to
each other. To break a horso, howovor,
that from it3 iucancy until la has roaohed
tho ngo of llvo or six yenrs hC3 ran wild

no easy ta!;!r. Hoiaco fought lK*.i\I,0nd iu
his struggle:, reared up, foil baoL*, ancl llio
bead hitting tlio hard* froa-jh ground, lm
was killed. That ended Uio hprso-brealtiug
for that day, but nil foraioon uud flight
tho mare whinnied and called piteoiisly for
hor mate, rofused to cat or drink, nndap-
puj-ently could not bo consoled. Mho kept
this up for throo days. Thoy put other
horses with her and did evory thing to
mako her "como to hor oats," as thoy
called it, but sho would not bo comforted,
and on tho morning of tho fourth day thoy
found hor dead; _
VANISHED IN  AIR.
Remarkable Ul-app-narance of a Tonus
Man's Corpse lu Xt-nla, O.
On tho morning of the 14th day of August, 1873, Charles J. Roid, a young man of
twenty-live years living at Xenla, 0., foil
dead whilo walking across tho dining-room
in his father's house. Tho family consisted
of his father, mother, two sisters and a
cousin, a boy ot fifteen.
All wero present ut tho breakfast tablo
when Charles ontercd tbe room, says A. G
B. in tho San Francisco Examiner, but Instead of taking his accustomed seat near
tho door by which ho had oniored, passed it
and went obliquely toward one of tbo windows-with wbat purpose no one knows,
Ho hud passed tho tablo but a fow steps
when ho foh heavily to the floor and never
again breathed.
Tho body was carried into a bedroom and,
after vain efforts at resuscitation by tho
stricken family, loft lying ou tho bed with
'composed Jimbs aud covered face. In .the
meantime tho boy had been hastily dispatched for a physician, who arrived some
twenty minutes alter tho death.. Ho uftor-
Iward remembered as an uncommon circi.in-
stanco tbat when ho arrived tho weeping
relations-father, mother and two sisters
were all in tho room out of whioh tho' bedroom door opened, and that door was closed.
There was no othor to tho bedroom.
This door was at onco opened by tho
father of the deceasod, and as tho physii inu
'passed through it ho observed tho rigid outlines of tbo body under tho sheet that bad
beon thrown over it; and the profile war.
plainly discernible undor tho fnco-cloth,
clear-cut nnd sharp, as profiles of tho dead
seem always to be,
Ho approached and lifted tho cloth,
Thore was nothing thero,
Ho pulicd away tho sheet,
Nothing.
Tho family had followed bim Into tho
room. At this astonishing discovery—if so
it may bo called—thoy lookod at one another, at tlio physician, at tho bed, in
speechless amazement, forgetting to weep.
A moment later tho threo ladies require-!
tho physician's caro; all had faintou uud
fallen to tho floor, Tho father's conditiuu
wob but littlo better; ho stood iu a stupor,
muttering inarticulately and staring liko an
idiot. Having restored the ladles to consciousness tho physician >vont to tbo window—tho only ono tho room bod, opening
upon a garden. It was looked on tho inside
with tho usual fastening attached to the bottom bar of tho upper sash and engaging
with tho lowor.
No inquest wob held—thoro was nothing
to hold it on; but tho physician mid many
others wbo were curious as to fbls remarkable occurrence mado tho most searching
investigation into all the circumstances, but
without result. Charles J. Reed was tlond
and "gone," ond that is all that is known to
this day,        ■ ■--• .

Our Vancouver Frlrtid.
The Vancouver New,.-Advertiser of
this morning contains an uilicle concerning, tho Southern Raihvny promo-
torn, and other mattera iu connection
with the road, which ie false in almost
overy particular, and if believed abroad
might prove of great damage to our
railway interests. The article infers
that Mr. Cantield aud party .-ore endeavoring to escape from a crowd of
unpaid employees, by taking a steamer
for down river, nccompmiied liy a number of "prom in out" citizens. Accord*
to the News "word had been sent to
nil tho camps, and the domains thereof cdtue swarmii.g iu to see about "that
htilo trifle pay" thnt has been standing su long thnt it pretty nearly needs
a rest or settlement of some kind."
And ngaln "when iho stoamei- moved
off on her tti.i down stream Sunday,
there was a r-trong disposition among
the crowd of employees watching her
departure, with dubious thoughts of lur
poBBibly running nwny with the magnates nnd their chances of getting
paid, to about, 'Whoa Emma!'"
Nothing could possibly be more untrue
than theso extracts from tho News
article, but, of courso, thero was no
intention tluTt the subject should be
fairly treated. It is well known that
Mr. Canfleld has nothing to do with
thu payment of llio railroad laborers
- Mr. Jua. Leamy, the con true tor, attends to that. As to to the crowd of
unpaid employees watching tlie excursion party leave tho wharf, and the
prospects of being paid departing with
ilium, it is mere nonsense. The crowd
on tlie wharf i-ompiised Mr; A. W,
Lundbom and Mr. F. Stirsky, neither
of which gentlemen hold any claims
against tlio company or any individual
member of tho patty. That, ihurc wna
tjomo trouble yesterday with a few of
tho engineering staff, whoso pay was
in arrears, no ono denies, but that
matter was promptly settled by Mr,
Oanfield, ami till back wfigos were
paid to-day. The intention of the
Nem-Advertiser in publishing this arti
cle ia vary npparaent, and in full keeping with tho warm friendship (?) it has
cvi'iccd.on the same subject on, many
previous occasions. Thero was 110 wish
to do the railroad peoplo justice, but on
the contrary, thu evident and palpable
untruthfulness uft he who!e,s!ni-,\s plainly the attempt to damage the credit of
tho road and ihe reputation of its promoters. Westminster hns tasted of
the News-Advertiser's friendship before to-day.
City Council.
The couucil met lust night at 8
o'clock for the transaction of business.
Present Aldermen Curtia, Calbick, Scoullar, Reid  and McPhaden,

stating thoy would contribute $4,000
towards tho opening out of McKenzie
street from Columbia to Front streot.

Aid. Jaques said ho would oppose
thia purchase unless the property
could bo got at n very reasonable
price.
Aid. Curtia thought the street very
necessary and would do his beat to'
bring about the purchase, providing
the price was not exhorbitant.
Aid McPhadon and Aid. Reid opposed tho purchase on the ground that
many olher streets were sufferiiig for
attention and the money could be
better spent.
Aid. Townsend would favor the
purchase if tlie land could bo had very
cheaply, but Mr. Wolf bad asked an
exorbitant price. 10 years ago and
would probably do bo again.
Aid. Scoullar favored the purchase
on many grounds and would support
it heartily. It would add to the appearance of the city ;md would be a
great convenience.
Aid, Curtis thought it rather strange
that the aldermen wanted to keep this
important matter back. If thu lot
woe not expropriated now it never
would be, and tho oity would be the
loser in thu long ruu. We must look
to the future and not be so narrow in
our views.. If the city is going to go
ahead the purchase of this property
would not bo a drop iu the bucket.
On motion the matter was laid over.

B-Itlnli Calnmbln Abroad.   .
Tho Toronto Empire of a recent
dato hns tho following, from which it
will be seen that our townsman Mr.
J. C. Whyte, who is now on his way
back from Ontario to this oity, has
beon patriotically sounding the praises
of his adopted provinco and city. The
Empire publishes a column interview
wiih Mr. Whyte, but we havo space
only for the following: ''Stepping into
the Palmer house the other day an old
Ontario sportsman was run across in
tho person of John C. Whyte. Mr.
Whyte is now a resident of New
Westminster, B, C, being connected
with the firm of F. G, Strickland it Co
machinery brokers. Jack Whyte was
known as a very vcr-uiile sport, being
equally at home in baseball, foot ball
or lacrosse. All remember his dashing runs and long throws when playing cover point en the Ottawa lacrosse
team. His work for five years as
three-quarter buck on the Ottawa
Rugby team was recognized of sufficient merit to gain him a place on the
provincial teams for '85 and '80. Mr.
Whyte was iu conversational mood
nnd volunteered nn enthusiastic description of hia adopted abode. He
regarded Victoria as a base ball town,
Vancouvor as a lacrosse upholder and
Westminstor nud Nnnaimo as favoring foot bill, uot that all sports are
not fully represented in these various
localities, but that a decided preference is manifested for these respective
epeciRHtieB. * * * Mr.
Whyte remarked that associations to govern different branches cf
sport, and more unison in the interests
of athletics in genoral, was Badly wanted, but he spoke hopefully of ultimate
results, on account of nil the -advantages proceeding from climate and
natural fondness for athletic development. Ho also humorously referred
to the rivalry of the Harrison nnd
Banff hot springs for tho recti peratioii
of broken-down audover-trainedsport.1.
In fact, tho impression conveyed by tho
chat waa that British Outumbia, uud
especially Now Westminster, was a
veritable paradise. The genial British
Columbian concluded with a few nl*
nio-t incredible stories of fishing exploits and big game expeditions in the
Rockies. Mr. Whyte leaves nbout the
10 h instant for hii home in tho West,
and rumor whispers that ho will bo accompanied by one of Ottawa's fair
daughters."
