,    NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The free trade people are nuking
from the customs returns some
sharp shots against the policy of
protection. Thiy print tables showing tho duty paid on imported
'articles of cheap quality, suoh is
the poorer people use, whioh duty
is, of course,. tax upon tbe people;
and there they add the difference
between the price of goods of home
manufacture, under protection, and
the real value of these goods, which
iB also a tax upon the (poor) consumer, and a bonus to the (rich)
maker. Taking a general view of
tho field, it can hardly be doubted
thut the free traders have gained
ground lately, both in the U.S. and
Canada. Indeed, we might extend
the observation and say that restrictive legislation of all sorts is going
I out of fashion—except, perhaps, in
British Oolumbia, where some of the
professions manage to fool the legislators into maintaining a hedge
around them. But this, too, must go.
The Toronto Globe's break from
'organism" is another sign of the
times. It will probably be a good
many years before we can find any
workable substitute for government by party; but it is evident
that the days of government for
party are fast running out, The
schoolmaster has not been abroad
during the last thirty or forty
years for nothing. It is not quite
as easy as it used to be to persuade
the ordinary voter that it is the
natural and correct thing for
the tail to wag the dog. Of
course, straight out party men
wiU s**u* their eyes to the new
order of things as long as possible,
but the newspapers are waking up,
and .they have an inconvenient habit
of insisting upon others following
their example,
Mr. Adolphe Nielson, the newly-
appointed superintendent of fisheries
in Newfoundland, is now about to
establish a cod hatchery on the most
approved lines, the necessary apparatus for which is being brought from
the United States. By means of this
hatchery he hopes to distribute no
less than 100,000 cod eggs during
the season, and the strongest hope is
entertained that by a continuance of
this method of replenishment the
restoration of the depleted bays and
coastal waters will be accomplished.
Having thus put cod hatcheries in
operation, Mr. Nielson will be deputed to give attention to other fisheries of Newfoundland.

SAMOAN AFFAIR*.
Washinoton, April 10.—Then was
no effort made at the state department
this morning to dony or even to evade
an answer concerning the report that
an agreement had been entered into
with the United Statos and Germany
respecting the presence of the war
vessels in Samoan waters. After consultation with his father and with the
German minister, Count Aroo, who
wad at the state department this morn
ing, Mr. Walker Blaine stated that an
amicable understanding between the
German and American governments
had been entered into. "England,"
said Blaine,'-will undoubtedly follow
tbe example of the other nations. The
threo treaty powers will eaoh keep but
one vessel at Samoa until tho terra-

The Alert, tbe small American gunboat, now at Honolulu, will represent
our Government at Apia. The Sophie,
a German corvette recently ordered to

is probable that the Calliope, the

Sydney during the great hurricane in
Apia harbor, will represent Great Britain thero." Mr. Walker Blaine

•THE DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, April 10.—In the house of
commons to-day, Sir Richard Cartwright introduced a resolution of want
of confidence against the government
in connection with last year's loan of
920,000,000. The loan, though negotiated for a period of fifty years, is to
be repaid in annual instalments of
about $2,000,000. This, he claims,
will mean its entire repayment in less
than 10 yean. He excused the Hon.
George E. Foster from any responsibility, but laid the blame upon Sir
Charles Tupper, the high commissioner
to England. Sir Richard laid special
stress upon the possibility of the stoek
for the repayment of the loan being
held at a nigh figure when required by
the government to liquidate its obligations. The claim in the prospectus,
providing for an annual expenditure'of
nearly $2,000,000 for a sinking fund,
he held to be binding, "Canada," he
said "has made a loan for fifty years,
but iu reality it is only a loan for five
or aix yeai**- repayable, in all likelihood*, at a premium. Within two
years we will own two-thirds of the
stock, and before long the unpurchased
remainder will be held for the purpose
of speculation and it ean only be purchased by the government at exorbitant figures." The recent loan has
practically a sinking fund of ten per
cent, attached to it. His resolution
was to the effect that the transaction
ie an improvident one and evidences
grobs mismanagement on the part of
those intrusted with the matter. Hon.
George E. Foster replied nnd justified
the loan in every particular and held
himself, as minister of finance, responsible for the transaction. The arguments of Sir Richard Cartwright were
only formed on a possibility whieh
might never happen. The financial
agents in England are equally guiltless
of any culpability. Sir Richard, he
said, had defended the same men from
opposition attacks in 1870. Sir
Richard's case simply depends
on the obligation' He assumes that
Canada is strictly bound to carry it
out. In all previous loans a' prospectus was issued and the obligation and
stipulation is in the bond itself. Proceeding, Mr. Foster declared that the
prospectus itself is not absolutely binding. The bond defends the conditions
of the loan. These conditions alone
are binding, and the government
oould not be committed to anything
else by an expression of intention in
the prospectus. After the recess
Messrs. weldon (St. John), Mulock,
Waldie, Peter White, Sir John Thompson and Colter spoke and the latter
closed the debate. Sir John Thompson said that the bond was the contract between the borrower and the
lender, both parties were bound by it
and not by the prospectus. There was
no legal obligation on tbe government
to buy up these bonds in case they
were unduly inflated. A division resulting, the amendment was rejected
by 43 majority, the vote being, yeas,
74 and -uys, fli7.

MK. SMITH TO RETIRE.
London, April 10.—A grand dinner
was given to-night at the Merchant
Taylors' Hall to Hr. William Henry
Smith, Ihe Government leader in'the
House of Commons. Both politicians
and business men were present, and
the latter in their speeches expressed
the confidence of the City of London
in Hr. Smith and his ability to direct
Ihe interests of tbe Conservative ma-
jority in the House of Common.. It
is generally believed tbat this dinner
coming closely upon the announcement of Hr. Smith', intention to retire from the House of Common, ud
take the higher though leu prominent
seat that will be tbe reward for hia
active party services, wu designed to
mark the approaching step, and that
Hr. Smith's resignation of Ihe Tory
leadership and acceptance of . peerage
will very shortly follow. The dinner
wu evidently organised with thia object in view. At present sll indications point towards Hr. Balfour's
succession to the leadership. The
coming session needs . strong, aggru- '■
sive man at the head to lead the lories
.nd Hr. Balfour'a Irish record is cited
u an evidence tbat he is the only man
able to assume the lesdarship. The
friends of Hr. Gosohen, however,

but th. "Baliourites" think then are

THE FARNELL COMMISSION.
London, April 10.- Before tbe Parnell commission today, Sir Oharlu
Russell, arguing io behalf of the Parnellites, recounted tbe history of the
growth of Feoiwism in Amwioa,
which, he uid, was merging into .
movement to obtain justice for Ireland
by legal agitation. The history of the
national league in America, said Sir
Oharles, shows no complicity in crime.
There is no period in ' the history of
Ireland, continued the apeakar, in
which the people of the Irish no* in
that greater Ireland beyond the seas
were not willing to accept the right of
self government in amity with the rest
uf the British empire. Sir Obulu
said that Mr. Parnell wu not associated wltb any secret society. He had
never met Patrick Ford, nor waa h.
implicated in any conspiracy whatever.
Hr. HichMl Davitt, although a friend
of Ford's, had repeatedly denounced
the outrages and all the agitation that
incited to them.

Looking over the senate debates
for 20th March we notice that Senator Mclnnes (B.O.) naked tho government "what steps hitvo beon
taken, or proposed to be taken, to
secure the rights and protect the
interests of Oanadian fishermen iu
the North Pacific and Behring's Sea
againBt the unwarrantable interference of "United States revenue cut-
tepT The honomble senator explained that ho moved in the niatter in
consequence of the somewhat extraordinary proclamation issued by tbe
president of the United States, bearing date the 22nd March, anent the
Behring's Sea fisheries. Continuing,
he dwelt on tho vital importance to
a large number of peoplo in this
province of a thorough understanding being arrived at on the subject
and of proper protection being
guaranteed those engaged in tbe fur
seal fisheries in and around the Aleu
tian Islands and in Behring's Sea,
as he believed the president's proclamation would be the means of preventing not only Canadian and foreign, but United States, vessels from
entering into that sea and pursuing
their vocation there. An interesting
discussion: followed, in which a number of the senators took part, tlie
ground being taken by several of the
senators that the United States
would never attempt to uphold such
a preposterous claim as exclusive
jurisdiction over Behring's Sea, a
olaim which would be repudiated not
only by England but by every civilized nation in the world, ahd that
would be resisted by force if necessary. Senator Mclnnes replied to
these arguments as follows: "If the
contention of the' United States to
the exclusive right to Behring's Sea
is not d proper construction to place
on thb proclamation, I cannot understand why the proclamation itself is
worded in "such ambiguous and
guarded language. I sincerely hope
that the government will-give assurances that they are taking active
steps for the protection of our fishermen on the Atlantic const. Last
year when tbe fisheries treaty was
under discussion I called attention
to what I considered a great wrong
to the fishing interests of the Pacific
province, and that was that the
whole question of tho fisheries of
Canada was not included in that
treaty. Now that a year has elapsed,
and in all probability a new
treaty will be negotiated, I sincerely hope and trust tbat inthe
interest of the whole .-.Dominion,
they will not allow any treaty to be
entered into that does not include
the fisheries of British Oolumbia and
contiguous waters." Hon, Senator
Smitli answered as follows: "The answer to tlie lion, gentlemen's inquiry
is that this matter, ie engaging the
earnest attention of her majesty's
government at present." Senator
Mclnnes' suggestion, that Pacifio, as
well as Atlantic, coast questions
should be included in any fisheries
treaty with the United States, is
one that the government will do well
to act upon iii future fisheries negotiations.
As will be (Ken by the interesting
report of the Richmond council in
another column, that municipality
finds itself in a disagreeable pickle
just now about the Nortii Arm
bridges. It -will tie remembered that
early last year the provincial government appropriated $10,000 towards the work of building a traffic
bridge across the north arm of the
Fraser to connect with a wagon
road to Vancouver. Tbe munici
pality, at whose request the government granted this sum, devoted a
like amount to the same object,
Negotiations havo also been carried
on since with the O.P.R., with a
view te that company taking tho
government .and municipal appropriations as a bonus and constructing the bridge, making it a railway
as well as a traffic bridgo. As
it was understood that tho 0. P. It.
intended to tun a line of railway
across the delta lands to the American boundary, it appeared quite
probablii at one time that the negotiations referred to would have been
successful. Nothing has come of
this expectation, however, and General Supt. Abbott, in his reply {published in the Richmond counoil report elsewhere) to the latest overtures of;; the oouncil on the subject,
states "that the oompany is not in a
poiition to give an absolute ossur-
ai-ice that tbey will join in the con*
siruotion of traffic and railway
bridges tint the north arm during
thfc next year," which fa significant.

and specifications were accordingly
prepared, under the superintendence
Of tbe government, and, in due
course, tenders for the work invited
and received. These bave only recently been opened by the chief
commissioner of lauds and works, at
Viotoria, with the result, as communicated to the Richmond council by
AT. S. Gore, 8urvey6r-ge'neral,-'thal!
the lowest tender exceeds the'total
sum, $20,000, appropriated jointly
by the government and the municipality, by $7,500. The surveyor-
general further, under instructions
from the chief commissioner, urges
tlio municipality to guarantee the
extra $7,500 required, on whioh
condition the government promises
to proceed with the construction of
tho bridges. But the most striking,
•not to say alarming, statement in
Mr. Gore's communication to the
Kiehmond council is "that the $10,-
000 already voted by the government will not be available after the
30th June next!" and recommending
that immediate action be taken by
the couucil iu ordor to secure tbe
sum voted. By their resolution on
the subject, published elsewhere, the
.Richmond council havo evidently
drawn the not unwarrantable inference from the surveyor-general's letter tlmt. it is the intention of the
government, after the 30th of June
next, to cancel absolutely its appropriation of $10,000 made towards the
North Arm bridges last year. But
we caunot believe that suoh a thing
is possible. The people of'Richmond
would have very good grounds for
charging the government' with a
gross breach df faith if anything of
the sort was done. We have a better
opinion of the government than to
believe it capable of suoh an action.
We are not certain that we can
second the request of the Richmond
council for an additional government
appropriation for the w6rk in question, bub we would most emphatically protest, in the name of common fairness and good faith, if for
ho other reason, against any retraction or repudiation by the government of tho fair claims of the municipality upon it.

FBOLICKING SNAKES.
They Take Sides and Engage In a
Snow-Balling Matoh.
A Roaring River (Mo.) correspondent of
tho Chicago Inttr Ocean ia authority for the
following Rioter snake story;        .
Half a hundred poople make up the population of Roaring River, way down in Barry
County, Southwest Missouri, where White
river has dwindled into such a littlo stream
thnt it can almost bo stopped across, except when awolen by freshets. Oftho fifty
inhabitants of Roaring River there are but .The snakes then formed into a porsoshun,
twoou tlie sides, an* then the gang ncer-
dest mo Boomed to hov a streak of bnd
luck, an' one after 'nuthor was hit until
tho big feller I'd fust aet eyea on wus
Ughtln' all by hisself. Wall, I*vo did some
tall dodgiii' in my timo from Injin arrcrs
an' ovon bullets, but I'll swan that rattler
tuk tho cake. Fur at least fifteen minutes
he squirmed 'round, never gettin' hit wunst,
an occasionally firln' baok, ah' allds hittin',
too-but somehow afore his victim'nd got
down to blm he'd get peppered, an' hev to
mako his way back.
"I'd been standin' In the wot snow so long
I'd kinder got chilled through, an* I ino v-d
aroun' a little bit to warm up. But I kep'
a-watchin' them snakes, an' dedn't notice
whut I waa a doin' close enough. Jut then
tho ol' fcllor straightened an''began to run
out his tongue, kinder as if he was pokin'
fun un' durin' t'other snakes to do thoir
roust. All of a suddent tho hammer of my
gun caught on a limb of a bush, an' off Bhe
wont. Bho don't bark very loud, you know,
an' when tho big Bnako begfln showin' seen
contempt for t'other side thar was a monstrous rattlin' up at the cave, ao that tho
snakes didn't hear tho shot Wall, tho muzzle jost happened to bo pintcd plumb iu a
lino fur tho ol' feller's bead, an* I'm durn'd
if tho bullet .didn't striko bim far'u squnr,
an* artcr squirmin' an' thrashln' 'roun' fur
a minnit ho stiffened out, doador'n a doornail.
T'other snakes stopped, and arter wailin-
to soo if bo wuBtt't jost a playin' 'possum,
thoy nil wriggled down to where ho wus
lyln\ Thoy wub about the s'pnsost lukia'
snakes you ovor seed whon they found ho
wus dead, aud couldn't fignor out jost
what hed killed bim. Wall, thoy sent
a snake up to tho cave, whar tho
rattlin' hed stopped, and ho kirn back
with six othor snakes, an' thoy kinder
nosed 'round the corpse, an! then went off
to ono sido an' seemed to listen to what
t'other snakes was telUn--tt.cn],. jist 'sif
thoy wub holdin' a coronor'B 'quest. Thon
thoy scorned kindor satisfied he'd bin hit by
a trozen snowball, fur ono of the snakes

a dozen full-grown and able-bodied males.
But to-day they had alt gathered at Simp-
bou's combination general merchandise
etoro and grocery, and were listening ln
open-mouthed wonder to tho story told by
old Jim Brldger, a relic1 of pioneer days and
an own cousin of the well-known scout and
trapper. Jim had just returned from the
Ozark mountains, whoro largo game can
sua bo found at rare intervals. The blizzard that set In just after Christmas had
como howling down Into a section rarely
visited by suoh severe weather, and a genuine snow-storm, lasting through tho night,
had surprised the oldest inhabitant, and
ceased only after the ground had been covered to a depth of several inches. Jim was
exposed to tbo storm, and told his listeners
It was tbe worst he had ever known in
Southwest Missouri, nnd reminded him of
somo of the old-timers out on the plains,
whon he had seen his comrades perish ono
after another, victims of the fearful freezing blasts.
" But 'twan't the storm that fotched me
up Btandin'," aaid Jim. "I seed suthin1
that skeered me so X believe I'vegrowed
gray-headed."
Jim laughed and so did his hearers, fol'
his head was innocent of hair except a little
fringo hero and there. But Jim quickly
chocked his own hilarity and waved his
hand impatiently for the gaping villagers
also to coaso. '
"What I seed,", henbegan, slowly and
solemnly, "I'm gwine tor tell you uns
about. Mebbe none'll b'llevo it, but you'd
better, fur old Jim Bridgor don't 'member
of bo very many fellers that's knockin'
'round tho yearth just at present who got
the idear inter the heads that he'd been
a-tamperln' with the truth and hed tho
cheek to say so. Wel|h OJ&istmas Day and
Monday, too, I'd been loafin* 'round '.thout
much luck, fur game's gittin' skaaor and
Bltascr, an' bimeby thar'll not oven be a
rabbit lef.. I mozeyed 'round till putty
near sundown, Monday. It war a-gittin'
colder an' colder, and began to snow, kinder
wet and lazylike, as ifknowin' 'twantno
placo fur the -butiful,' 'way down in this
kern ry. I knowed of a little hole in the
rocks a mile or so furder en', an* tuk a bco-
jino fur it, gittin'thar jost aforo dark. I
scraped .some old logs tosjother,
built up a roarin' fire' at the back
of the - cave, - agin the rooks. I

War kinder drawin' intor it, an' thought to
pysolf: 'What a bully ehimbly I got, made
to order,'an' then I trun on a few more
logs an'went ter sleep: 'Bout six o'clock I
woko, feelin' pow'ful hungry. 1 kicked the
coals together, piled on more wood an' soon
had tbo biggest kin' of a firo agin; thon I
shouldered my gun and struck out just
after sun-up, tryin' to -fin' suthin* wnth
poppln' over fur my broakfust, an' all tho
timo thinkln' what a bully bed of coals
lhar'd bo fur mo to cook it on, Wall, I
kep' goln' on and on, an' 'twas nigh on to
ten o'olook afore I managed to pop ovor
even a rabbit. Seem'd 'sif all tho game'd
gone inter thar boles when the snow kim,
felcios'twas gittin' so tarnal sloppy that
■most overy thing but a durned fool knowed
imuft to keep inside. The sun was gittin-
hotter an' hotter, an' meltin' the snow like
so much wax when I tramped baok to the
pave, 'bout as mad at myself an* the rest of
tho folks as I generally git. 'Bout a hundred yards from tho bole the woods cleared
away, an' thar wu* an open spot clean up to
Iho spot whar I'd camped, X did what I've
always done afore iteppln' qut Inter the

then I got my eyes sot on the cave, an'it
wuz jest a-swarmln- with reptiles. To Bave

QUEEN OF TRAMPS.
Hale, Hearty and Seventy-Five, She Tells
of » Checkered Lifo.
Tho queen of tramps was a rocent guest
at tho Hoboken polico station, writes a Chicago Times correspondent from Hoboken,
N. J. This remarkablo woman, now in her
Beventy-flfth year, ia Sarah Dougherty. Sho
was born in Londondoi ry in 1814, and emigrated to this country in 1840. Immediately
after hor arrival sh4 began her nomadio
lifo, and has visited Wery section of this
country and witnessed all tho important celebrations. She haa soon all tho Presidents
from Piorco to Cleveland inaugurated.
During the war she was closo to the scone
of several of the big battles, and was ono
of tbo first women to reach tho capital of
tho Southern Confederacy after the surrender of Leo. During the centennial colo*
bration she was in Philadelphia, and when
Castor fell was closo to tho spot whero ho
was ambushed and killed.
She is not an educated woman, but has a
retentive memory and is a rhymstor. Sho
wrote a poem touching tho death of Custer,
and recites it with considerable dramatic!
power. Bho delights to toll of tho loading
events in the history of tho country during
tho past thirty years, and with ponderous
particularity details tho prominent attractions in tho leading cities in tho United
States, and tho many interesting celebrations that havo taken place in tho largo cities at which Bho was present; -
Sho has studied tho Biblo, and has several odd conundrums to propound to ministers ojt the Gospel, She Is fond of ehildron,
and expends hor fow pennies in purchasing
candy for the littlo ones whilo she goes
hungry.
Tho queen of tramps Is vigorous, and her
longsiego of exposure and Bufforiug has
loft fow marks on hor despite her ad*
vanced age. She- -left tho polico station
ond tho board that Had served as a bed as
refreshed and contented as if sho had occupied a luxuriously appointed room iu u
hotel. Sho moved quickly down Newark
street toward tho forry, remarking thut
sho wanted to mako a call In New York City
before resuming her journey. Hor destination is Washington, to again seo Congress
in session.
RISKS OF  RESEARCH.
The Mishap Whleh Befell the Inventor o
Chloride of Nitrogen.
The dangerous quests upon which enthusiastic chemists may embark aro strikiingly
Illustrated by the case of tho yellow, oily
lubstanco called chloride of nitrogen, says
tho London Dally News. This terrlblo explosive was discovered In 1811 by Dttlong,
who lost ono eye and three fingers in a vain
attempt to ascertain iu composition. So
bowerfulisit that whon Faraday and Sir
B. Davy took It in hand tboy provided thorn-
selves with thick glass masks to protect
their eyes from the flying bits of glass, and
to Bomo extent from the Irritating vapors
of tho oil itself. Faraday was ouono occasion stunned by tho detonation of only a
tow grains of the compound, and bits of the
(ubo in whleh it had boon contained almost
penetrated his mask. On another occasion
Sir Humphry Davy was BeVerclyltojurod by
tho explosion of a'few drops under tho receiver of an air-pump. Since thoir timo tho
precise composition of tho oil has bcou a
mystery. At last, however, Dr, Gutter*
mann, of Gottingon, has succeeded in its
analysis. Ho finds that tho substance examined hitherto was. impure, and tbat tho
extreme danger of handling it was partly
duo to that fact and pfcrtly to the varying
notion of light. Any bright light, ho has
•found, is enough to produco detonation, a
discovery made by tho suddon destruction
of his apparatus by a stray sunbeam..
Chemical research nowadays to apt to stray
among the toemlng pastures of organic
chemistry, to thi neglect of tho old problems offered by the inorganic world, though
the solution of tbeso problems belongs to
tho hlghost efforts of experimental science

its course it gathers strengtli and develops into a placid stream, nnd so
flows on into the ocean.—Times,

The captain of the schooner Norma,
which arrived at Astoria- from San
Francisco on Monday, statea that nearly all day Sunday he sailed through
vast numbers of fur seals, whales, porpoises and sea lions. So plentiful
were they that they barely kept out of
the way of the sohooner. Ono large
whale was struck by the vessel. The
school was of .auch vast proportions
that the lookout aloft oould not see
where it ended. Millions of seagulls
hovered over them. The supposition
is that they were following up an enormous school of fish.
AHIIght Accident,
This morning while Mr. J. R, McNeil waa bidding goodbye to a friend
on the O.P.N, wharf, he made a false
step and fell into one of tho slips,
striking his forehead against, the Bide
of the atr. Princess Louise and inflicting a very severe cut just abovo the
right eye. He would have fallen into
the river but for the promptness of
two bystandors who were lucky enough
to save him from further accident.
Tho wound though an ugly one is not
serious, and, barring a partial disfigurement of his good looks, McNeil will bu
none the worse of the mishap iu a few
days.
The Pocking Establishment--,
Contrary to expectation tho salmon
canners did not manage to commence
packing this week. The fisheries department have not issued tho licenses
for this season, but permits have been
granted allowing a few boats to commence work. Until the usual licensou
are issued very little fishiug will bo
done by the cannerymen. The boats
working at present average 12 to 20
tine fish eaoh day, and the run is steadily improving. Several of tho packing establishments will commence
operations early next week and the
others will all be at work in a month
if the run continues good,

A Noble Vagram,
It is not often that our police court

ttie chnrgo of being a loose nnd idle
person, and a vagrant, He waa ' arrested in a store-house belonging to
tho Royal City Mills, overwhelmed -by
a drunken stupor and oblivious to his
present misery and the past glories of
his family. Neville claims to be ado*
scendant of the kingly line of Plan-
tagenet, but though sprung from such
a noble strain he did not disdain to
make his living by singing aud dancing in public houses for thu pennies
bestowed upon him by the vulgar
plebians. The magistrates looked only
on the roan' ns found by the law, and
sentenced him to pay a fine of 925 or

mid works, stating that tho government will be prepared to proceed with

amount of the lowest tender over and
above the $20,000' already provided
for the construction of the iron combination bridge; also stating that the

absolute assurance that they will join
in the construction of traffic and railway bridges over the north arm dur-
iug the next  year.   Filed.

completed, and recommended payment
of $200; S. H. Wescott'a contract for
covering flumes at south end of road
No. 1 completed, expense $50, and recommending payment. Report adopted.
A petition was read from J. T. Er-
rington and thirty-six others, asking
the council, in view of the information contained in W, S. Goro's com-
municaton, to pasa a by-law, for submission to the ratepayers at tho earliest possible moment, to enable the
corporation to raise by a loan the additional $7,500 necessary to insure the
construction of tho North Arm bridges
without delay, nud promising their
hearty support to the by-law. The
petition was laid on the table.
On the communication from W.
S. Gore the following action was taken:
Resolved, that in consideration of the
communication of W. S. Gore, Burvey-
or-general, on behalf of the chief commissioner of lands and works, stating
that it will be necessary for this council to guarantee tho payment of the
further sum of $7,500 in order to secure the erection of the bridges across
the north arm of the Fraser, and also
thnt tlio government grant of $10,000
will only be available up to the 30th
June next, making it urgently necessary that immediate action ho taken by
this council in the matter, it is the
opinion of this council thnt thttfeb-WM-
ment, knowing all the causes of delay
in the preparation of the work in
question, and, not having heretofore
even hinted at tho probability of the
voto being allowed to lapse on the 30th
of June next, we look upui the attitude assumed by tho government as
indicated by this letter as uuwarrant-
bla, and that this couucil, being led to
infer that tlie $10,000 appropriated by
the government would be available until some definite proposition could be
received from the C.P.R. Oo.,"bri until Borne othor definite course could be
decided on, must look upon itfcJf'HetiWi
as unfair,, and that in case this corporation is unable to arrange to satisfy
the requirements of the government
as stated in this communication, we
must look upon ns a breach of faith on
tho part of the government if they allow the said sum of $10,000 to be taken
from the estimates or made unavailable
for the said purpose.
Be it further resolved that the
government he and are hereby requested to place the $10,000 iu question on
tho estimates for this year, and also
an additional sum equal to ono half of
the extra sum required for the purpose
of building the said bridges in accordance with the plans approved by tho
government, and thst tho clerk be and
is hereby instructed to forward a copy
of this resolution to the chief commissioner of lauds and works with the request that he lay the matte-, before
the government without delay. Oarried.
On motion the reeve was instructed
to proceed to Victoria to further interview the government on the bridge
question and strengthen the request
contained in the ubove resolution of
the council.
Coun. Garni- submitted a "Highway by-law," which was received and
read the first time. The Highway bylaw indicates tho following roads as
Sublic highways: 1, From the gulf of
eorgia how known as Terra Nova
eaatwardly, insido the dyke, on the

13, Sea island, near the river, and

proposed bridges loading to tbe main*

The council adjourned to meet on
Saturday next, April 13th.
Tke Tuwn .Kicker.
The following, from tho Atchinson
Globe, applies to a certain class of persons to be found in nearly all communities:
"Once upon nn ovening dreary,
while I brooded, blind and beery, thinking of the city's future, sa Va often
thought before; while I nodded nearly
napping, suddenly I heard n rapping,
as of people widly scrapping, scrapping
near my chamber door.
So I threw my packet, and cried,
'O cheese that rocket/ but the pounding still continued, till it shook the
oaken floor. To the door I walked,
snd twisted on the knob, which resisted, then there enmo a doublo-fisted
kicker of the days of vnro; not a word
ho said, but Bquatted, on, a yellow
sofa, Bpotted with green dots of red
and crimson, looking like iraall daubs
of gore.
Both hii eyes ven at me staring,
and their steady, sullen glaring, tent
a chillness to my bosom, striking coldly to its core. 'Tell me, cried I, tell
me kicker, have you filled yourself
with liquor, that you come out with a
snicker, uninvited to my door.' Take
thy cane and take thy bundle, and from
without my ohamber tumble, or by all
the crimson demons, I shall wallow in
your gore.' But the kicker, never
blinking, sat upon the sofa thinking,
never smiling, never winking, as he
answered,   'Nevermore.'
'Kicker/ said I, 'spring is coming
—don't you think booms will be humming; don't you think the town will
flourish as it never did before? Think
you it will bo saving, when we have
decent paving, and the people quit
their raving at the mud and ruts galore )' But the kicker never flittting
on the sofa still sitting, while his teeth
were gritting, that sad answer, -Nevermore.'
'Don't you think/ I said with sorrow, 'brighter things will come to-morrow ? Don't you think we hear
around ub, building with din and roar}
Even though tbe chumps are sighing,
grunts protesting, kickers crying,
don't you think we'll soon bo flying to
suoh heights as eagles soar?' Quoth
the kicker, 'Nevermore.'
Kicker/ cried 1 in fury, 'I'll bo
judge, court and jury, and your sentence is to wallow in your own disgruntled gore. For your answers matte me
weary, and you spoil a prospect cheery,
by your snivelling so dreary, as you
oft have done before. Take your hat
from off my bracket, take your bundle
and your packet, and make tracks
across the river, or I'll slug you till.
you're sore. This old town Would,
have been Boaring where the'solar stars
are pouring, but for kickers and their
roaring, which is all their Btook and
store; take away thy dismal body,
with its smell of weed and toddy, for you
make my system weary/ Quoth tbe
kicker,  'Nevermore.'
And tbe rascal never flitting, on my
sofa atill is sitting, and the gaslight on
him shining casts his shadows on the
floor. At the carpet he is staring,
with a steady vacant glaring, and answers to my swearing, with a dreary
'Nevermore.' This he wishes when
I'm raving on the beauties of good
paving, of the prospects of more
buildings than we ever had before. I
have filled him full of liquor, and thon
tried to bounce the kicker, but he only gave a snicker, aa he answered,
■Nevermore.'"

THERE'S a bower of roses by Bende-
meer's stream,
3  And the nightingale sings round it all
the day long;
'Twos Bwect fn tbe timo of my childhood's
young dream
To sit miu the roses aud hear tbe birds'
Bong.
That bower and its roseB I never forget;
And oft, while alone, in the bloom of
the year,
I think, "Is the nightingale singing there
•       yet J"
Are the roses still bright by the calm
Beudemcer.
No; the flowers soon withered that hung
o'er the wave-
But some blossoms .were gathered while
freshly they shono,
And a dew was cxaled from their petals
which gave
All the fragrance  of  summer when
summer was.gone.
