Although much doubt has been
expressed as to the wisdom of the
adoption by New York state of
electricity as the instrument of
capital punishment instead of the
rope, bills to the same effect have
been introduced in the legislatures
of Missouri, Illinois, and Ohio. So
dissatisfied are the people of these
states with the present mode of
execution of criminals that they
wish to follow the example of New
York, even before the electrical
system lias been given a trial. In
the latter state the exact method of
applying the electric current to the
body of the condemned person has
not yet been decided upon.
An ex-soldier in the English
army, who had long been stationed
in India, brought suit in a Dublin
court lately to recover possession
of a terrier dog. He stated that he
had taught the dog to understand
Hindustani, and he was willing if
the dog was brought into court to
teat the quadruped's knowledge of
the language. If the animal did
not understand it he would withdraw
his claim to it. The magistrate
consented, and the dog was brought
into the body of the court attached
to a chain, which was held by the
defendant's son. The complainant)
told the boy to drop the chain, and
on his doing so ho made some
observations in Hindustani, and the
qpg ran quickly around the dock
through a crowd of persons and
jumped into the witness box and
began to fawn on the complainant,
Tho magistrate said there was no
getting beyond that evidenee, and
at once ordered the dog to be given
up to the complainant.
At a prayer-meeting "doyrn east,"
a man noted for his failures to meet
business obligations, arose to speak.
The subject was: "What shall I
do to be saved f He commenced
slowly to quote the words: "What
shall I do to be saved V Again
with more solemn tone he repeated
the question of questions, when a
voice from the assembly, in clear
and distinct tones replied : "Go
and pay John Williams for that
yoke of oxen." The incident stirs
up thought A great many people
beforo they can be saved, or guide
others to the Saviour, will have to
"go and pay John Williams" the
money they honestly owe him.
Thousands read no other Bible than
the lives of those who profess to be
following its precepts in their daily
lives. The greatest need of the
church is true, pure, upright living

the best shape. The tree is known

FIKE BUGS UNBAHTHED
New Yoiik, April 4,—A band of
firo bugs liavo been unearthed by the
Brooklyn and Jersey City police. The
band is identitied with a band of Chicago Anarchists. The members were
well located in Brooklyn. Lost Deo
ember several engaged small stores in
different localities, secured all the insurance possible then eet them on fire.
Their plan to avoid suspicion wus to
break a kerosene lamp to convey . impression it was a lamp explosion from
which tho fires originated. The fire
bugs used bags filled with volatile and
benzino encircled by gunpowder to
which a slow fuse connected. The
minute it touched the gunpowder, the
whole placo would be ablaze and. all
traces of how the fire originated was
obliterated. The owners of the stores
and families would be conveniently
absent on the occasion of the fire, at
some other member's house. This
was for tho purpose of proving an alibi.
Since the advent of the gang a; dozen
fires occurred. The chief ot the gang
is Bernard Blume, recently captured
at his house in Jersey City. HiB
apartments wore thoroughly searched
and between two mattresses were
found 22 bladders used by the fire bugs.
Blume brought to Brooklyn Frederick
Feight, Frederick Freund, and Frank
Bussing who are now in custody. The
Inst named three arrested are iu Brooklyn. The police nre hot on the Bcent
of the others nnd more arrests are
looked for. Chief of .Police Murphy, of
Jersey City, is of the opinion the gang
is responsible for several suspicious
fires in that city during the pust three
months.
booth's ILLNESS.
Rochester, N. Y., April 4 —Booth,
the actor, nroso at 8.30 o'clock this
morning. Dr. 0. R. Sumner called ou
him and found hiB condition much improved. The actor is now uble to
speak quite pUiuly. Uc took breakfast iu his room. Dr. Sumner advised
him to take rest for a week or ten
dnys. In reply to tho question;
"What is Mr. Booth's condition this
morning ?," the doctor Baid: '.-Mr,
Booth is feeling a great deal better to-
dny." Did you consider his condition
lust night alarming 1" "1 did uot
think it immediately dangerous. I
found he had Bustained a Blight stroke
of parnlysis whioh prevented the power
of speech. The paralysis affected hiB
entire left side. He was unable, to
speak and of course I told him he
could hot go on with his part. Tt was
thought ut first that tho attack would
piifl* nwny in a few minutes, but I felt
sure it waa impossible for him to resume his part, I think with tho rest
of the week or ten days he will be ablo
to keep his engagements. Last night's
attack, however, is a premonition of
what is bound to come. I think that
within a few years Booth will Buffer n
final attack whioh may rob America of
her greatest actor, Edwin Booth left
for New York at 10.35 a. m. via the
New York Central road. Lawrence
Barrett and company went to Buffalo
at 11,45, Booth walked from tho carriage,to tho train without assistance.
He carried a light satchel slung over
his ihoulder, while a wooden toothpick, plain and unvarnished, rested between his lips. He did not look like a
aick man.

OTTAWA NOTES.
Ottawa, April 3.—The dominion
government received a cablegram frum
London informing them that tho judical committee of tho privy council gave
judgment this morning in the Precious
M-'tal--' cii-a unreservedly iu favor of
(he provinco i f British Columbia. Mr.
Mium qnestiono'l thu minister of justice in lhe house this afternoon, und
received confirmation of the report.
Mr. Mara suggested that the government entor into negotations with the
British Columbia government with a
view to exchanging the lands iii tho
twenty-mile belt for lands in tho Peace
River district contiguous to the territories. The rules of tho houso preventing an enlargement ot the subject.
Mr. Mara will iutroduce the question
at a future dnte,
• The railway committee declined to
give the Toronto corporation power to
compel telegraph nnd telephone companies to place their wires underground, for the renion that the matter
was within the competency of the
provincial legislature, being a municipal question.
Sir John nnd Lady Macdonald have
cancelled all social engagements owing
to the death of the minister of railways.
The impression prevails that poroga*
tion cannot take place before May 1st,
owing to obstruction by opposition
members.
DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, April 3.—In the house of
commons this afternoon Sir John S.
D. Thompson in reply to Mr. Mara
said that he had received intelligence
that the Imperial privy council to-day
has decided tho suit between the province of British Columbia and tlie
Dominion as to the ownership of the
precious metals in the O, P. R. belt
in favor of that province. Mara expressed the hope that the Dominion
government will exchange theae lands
For othor lands in the Peace River
country. Ho said it was too late in
the session to introduce a motion to
that effect this session, but gave notice
that he will bring up the matter the
first time that Mr. Foi ter moves the
house to go into committee of supply.
The opposition made a vigorous attack to day on the franchise aot. When
the amendment aot, introduced early
in the session by Sir S. D. Thompson
came up for the third reading, Mr.
Edgar objected to tho amendments.
Mr. Charlton said that the franchise
act is the worst piece of legislation
ever enacted. Sir John Macdonald
said it was useless to talk of repealing
the act. He had no intention of going
to tho country just now, but before he
did the neb would bo taken up. Hon.
Mr. Laurier, tho leader of tho opposition, declared that the act was rotten
to the core. He favored the adoption
of tho voters' list of the various provinces for federal purposes, and
thought that the time for manhood
Buffrage has not arrived though he
favored the extension of the present
By-Hem. In conclusion ho moved that
the bill be not now read a third time,
but that in the opinion of this house
the electoral franchise aot should be
repealed and that the provincial voters'
lists should be adopted instead. Sir
Richard Cartwright nnd the Hon.
Peter Mitchell supported the amendment, and Messrs. Curran and Wilson
(Elgin) opposed it. The debate is still
iu progress.
A division on Mr. Lnurier's amendment was reached at midnight, it being negatived by 30 majority, the yeas
being 75 aad the nays 105.
BRITISH COLUMBIA WINS.
London, April 3.—The Judicial
committee of the Privy Counoil to-day
delivered judgement in the case of
the Britiih Columbia mineral appeal.
Lord Watson said that tho committee
was of opinion that the rights to which
the Dominion is entitled under the
eleventh section of the British North
.America aot could not derogate from
the provincial right to royalties connected with mines and minerals in the
railway belt of the province undor section 109. The appeal of British Columbia is, therefore, allowed, though
no order will be made regarding costs.
• THE LEAGUE JUSTIFIED,
London, April 3.—Beforo the Parnell commission to-day Sir Charles
Russell continuing his address, contended tbat the league was justified boforo
God and man. The issue of the commission depended upon proof that Mr.
Parnell and his colleagues had under
the cloak of a land movement, schemed
to cause the commission of murder and
outrage. If there was no proof then
tho commission must declare them to be
men earnestly striving to lift un intolerable burden from the shoulders uf
tho people. The beginning of Mr,
Parnell's examination has been fixed
for next Tuesday.

A WOMAN OF TACT.
'Pretty is what pretty does." This
old copy-book, "saw" is especially
applicable to Queen Christinia. When
she was a bride, everyone said that
she would bring down the monarcy
about her husband's head. Her man*
ner was uot only cold but forbidding;
her ahyuesB was so mixed with pride
of birth and narrow minded prejudices
as to be positively offensive. She had
a tall thread-paper figure, a mouth
that ran from ear to ear, a bad complexion, and was wholly devoid _ of
graciousness. She wore ber mantilla
with coquettish grace when she and.
the king received. She stood a little
behind him, and his affable desire to
charm all those to whom he granted
an audience made her ungraciousness
more marked. Through a constant
effort to think and say and do the
right thing, she has become interesting and agreeable. Her figure is still
mere skin and bones and her face
plain, but the expression almoit beautifies it since she haa been at the head
of the affairs of Spain, She hu not
made a blunder; she hu avoided giving offense to any party, andhu really
won popularity. Her manner of receiving is perfect. I am told that it
wns hor idea, when it waa arranged
that the queen wu to come and seo
her, to put into practice the Spanish
empty formula of assuring a guest
that the house whioh the latter designed to visit and all that therein wu,
belonged to her. This way of treating
her regal visitor wu handsome and
got rid of the ticklish questions of
etiquette which might have become
burning ones.
A CLERGYMAN SUICIDES.
London, April 4.—Rev. Charles Sidney Hurd, recently pastor of the Palmerston Unitarian church, of Boston,
Mass., suicided at Huston Square
hotel on Sunday, by taking opium. He
wrote a letter to Rev. 8. Brooks lut
week asking for money. Brooks made
inquiries about the man and promised
to pay his passage to Boston, although
he said Hurd was a stranger to him.
At an inquest held to-day it was found
the clergyman had written a letter
dated Saturday Inst, directed to Brooks,
in whioh he thanked him for his kindness, apologizing for annoying him and
said the only way out of his difficulties
was through the gates of death. In
letter he said "I am tho most unlucky
mortal on earth. My body, I give to
the Medical school for diisection. My
brother's address Is 4 Parker streot,
Molden, Mass." "The Coroner* juij
returned a verdict of mioide through
insanity. Brooks, who wu notified of
the unfortunate death, hu promised to
defray the expenses of his burial and
will not allow the body to be directed.
Prof. Erneit, a muiic teaoher, ol

The bill incorporating tlie Canadian Western Railway Company,
about which there lias been so much
talk nnd (lillei-enee of opinion both
in and out of tlio house, passed its
third reading in the provincial legislature on Monday, A clause was
inserted in tho bill in committee to
tbo effect that work should be commenced on tlie proposed line
within throe years and that
the road should be completed
within ten years from the passing
of the bill. The bill gives Llie Western Oanadian Railway Company
power to construct, equip, and maintain a railway from a convenient
point on the eastern boundary of the
province tothe northern terminus of
the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway on Vancouver Island, via Yel-
lowhead Pass, Cariboo and Bute
Inlet; to construct and maintain
branch lines, &c, and to receive a
certain grant of land from the province in aid of the proposed enterprise. The bill as passed does not
specify what the extent of the land
subsidy shall be nor as to tho manner of apportioning it. This will
be a matter for future consideration,
and it is to be hoped that the interests of the province will not be
considered ns secondary to those of
the railway company, either in tho
extent of the proposed land grant,
or the conditions as to its apportionment, subsequent disposal to actual
settlors, -to. We do not go so far as
some of our cotemporaries in this
matter, and oppose the granting,
under nny' conditions, of a single
acre of land to tlie railway scheme
in question. While we should oppose thn idea of the provinco nt
tempting lo subsidize.the Canadian
Western Railway out of the public
treasury, we believe the circumstances ure such that a land subsidy,
properly apportioned and limited in
the public interest, would be justified as an aid to tho enterprise. The
projected road will go through a part
of the province almost a wilderness
at present, but portions of which, as
the Ohilcotin country are known to
be rich in agricultural aud pastoral
resources, while the road would
almost certainty lead to large development of hitherto unopened mineral
wealth. The railway is the great
champion modern developer and
civilizer, and in no other way, so
speedily and cheuply, can the vast
tract which the railway will traverse
be opened up and 'itA'cfti available for
capital and population, - It is expected by the promoters of the Canadian Western Railway that ultimately their road will form the British Columbia Rection of another
transcontinental railway, the idea
beiny that tho Grand Trunk will
make connection with the Canadian
Western somewhere about the eastern boundary of the provinco. Victoria or Esquimalt, would be the
terminus of this new transcontinental line, and thus the long-cherished
island project for a railway by Bute
Inlet would be fulfilled. Victoria
expects, of course, to reap the greatest benefit from this enterprise, but
that is no reason why the scheme
should be jealously opposed by other
sections of the province. On the
contrary, it should be considered on
its merits, and as affecting the province. Viewing tlio matter thns, we
believe that the Canadian Western
Railway Company is entitled to a
reasonable, properly conditioned,
bind subsidy.
"""^Natural- -gas *is*"being so extensively employed in lighting and heating, observes un Bastern cotemporary,
that in cities where large sums are
being voted   for  appliances for its
Utilization the public very seriously
debate the question of tho permanency of   the supply,    At Toledo,
Ohio, tho natural gas scheme, which
involves the laying of many milea of
I piping to tlie gas fields, is expected
to-require an expenditure of at least
two million dollars.   A commission
at  that city bos  been examining
evidence with  a view to  forming
some conclusion as to whether or not
the gas supply is likely to be maintained snfticiently long to justify the
expenditure.   But the commission
is unable   to arrive at any definite
* conclusion.    No ono knows how the
'-■ gas  is formed, and no one can tell
how long it is likely to last.   There
is a common impression that natural
gas  is  in some way a product of
petroleum.   Bat the chemical facts
are  against this idea, and besides,
I tho gtts is found in the Trenton lime
Stone, ft  lower stratum than the
petrtletttoibearing shales,   'tht. gas
is  supposed to have its origin still
lowet-  than the Trenton rooks, in
which it is stored in so great quan
' tity:   Tbftt-thB;supply is inexhaustible  ia Moeedingiy unlikely, but it
ttfcy bo that th# accumulation    '
would almost certainly be too slow
to meet demands wero the original
accumulation < exhausted. Be this
as it niay, there is a good deal ofj
encouragement to investment in
natural gns schemes, in tho fact that
some cities which havo been using
the gas for many years have found
the flow rather increasing than
diminishing. Tho exhaustion of the
petroleum beds in some districts,
however, suggests the- possibility
that gas likewise may'flow for a
number of years and then cease.
As the Trenton limestone is found
on the surface in central Ontario
and for a long distanco westward it
is found at no very great depth, it is
not unlikely that drilling for gas
will bo attempted over an extensive
area in Ontario and . tho adjacent
states. While on tbe subject of
boring for natural gas, it would not
bo amiss to inquire what has becomo
of tho project talked of about a year
ugo, to bore a hole in the ground
somowhero on the townsito of Westminster, "to seo what what could bo
found,"
Tho idea of a negro colonization
scheme in Arkansas is taking shape,
says an exchange,- Writers who
have studied the question take tho
view that the negro population is
increasing more rapidly irithti South
than the white population, and that
it will not be many years -before the
South will be in the hands of the
colored voters. Efforts, many of
them of a questionable kind, aro
always made in the elections to prevent the colored voters £rom going
to the polls, and it has even been
suggested that they should be disfranchised. The negto population
cannot be assimilated like tbe foreign element which finds its way
into the republic front the various
countries of the old world. It is
doomed to forever remain apart. In
some of the southern states the laws
passed by the legislatures deal unfairly by the colored people, especially in regard to school affairs nnd
election matters. The white people
cannot put aside the fculing that
theso colored men who have been
made voters were once tlicir slave-*,
and they decline to look upon them
as in any way their equals, oven
although they stand* upon the same
level before the ballot-box. Tho
idea is to establish a negro colony in
Arkansas and follow agriculture.
The negro is better iitted for tho
cotton-fields, but there seems no good
reason tlmt lie should not make a
fairly good farmer, provided he
works side by side with his fellows.
This negro problem looms up on tho
horizon the weightiest, and unmistakably the darkest, with which tho
Americau people will have to grapple
in tho near future. A uegro colony
in Arkansas will not go far towards
settling tlio whole question, even if
it should turn out a successful experiment.

According to tho latest returns received
at tho War Department and sent to Congress
by tho Secretary of War, the total number
of men in tho United States available for
military duty is 8,031,605, exclusive of
those in tho regular army. Of this number, 100,837 are enrolled In the militia forces
of tho various States and Territories. The
remaining 7,030,788 aro the able-bodied male
citizens of the United States ovor eighteen
-years of age and under forty-five years,
wbo aro liablo to be called upon under the
law to perform military servico. - This number is us nearly exact as possible in the ab-
eeuco of definite reports from the Adjutant-Generals of a number of States.
Where theso reports have not boen received, careful estimates have been made
ln the offlco of Adjutant-General Drum.
Tho number of men in the organized militia Ib more easily got at, and the figure
givon is substantially correct. Now York
heads tho list of States In tho number of
enrolled militiamen, having more than
4,000 moro troops tban Pennsylvania, which
stands second on tho list. Tho following
table shows tho number of enrolled militiamen In eaeh State,. In eluding commissioned

fall of Inst year that somo negroes stopped

The discovery struck terror into tho minds

an improvement on tho old fashioned

itock Creek Ttllues,
A private letter, dated Ruck Creek,
March 24th, gives tho following: Tho
Douglas Company has struck vory rich
ore at the depth of 90 feet. There is
considerable excitinnnt. Douglas
thinks ho has a magnificent property
and intends running 100 feot on the
ledgo, and Bending a fow tons of tho
oro to Kew York as soon as possible.
Some of the rock which was crushed
by a hand mortar, when panned,
shows huge specks of gold. It is estimated from £600 to $2,000 to the ton.
The lodge is 5 feet 9 inches wide. Tho
Cariboo and Amelia Company have
purchased a ten-stamp mill. The prospects look bright for a good mining
camp. This is good news for thoso
who own stock in the Alico ft Emma
Company, incorporated In this city, as
tho location uf thoir property is between tho Doiit-liia ami the Cariboo
Company.— Colonist.
The North Arm Service,
The str. Fairy Queen went down to
the North Arm this afternoon and tomorrow morning begins her regular
trips, as per contract, between that
settlement and Westminster. Tho
at earner will make her headquarters at
the JSorth Arm, leaving there every
m-irning (Sunday excepted) for Westminster. Sho will remain nt hor
wharf (Austin's) at least throe hours,
nnd probably longer, giving the farmers
ample time to dispose of their produco
and do their shopping round town.
The inauguration of this servico means
tho return of a large trade which has
latterly boen forced into nuothor channel. Westminster ia the natural business centre for all tho valley of the
lower Fraser, bul, as in the case oftho
North Arm, nature's advantages will
only bo of uso to us in future when
backed up by liberality nnd enterprise
such as has been displayed in connection with tho establishment of tbo
daily steamer servico to the North
Arm settlement.
The Provincial Must-urn.
Mr. John Fannin, curator of tho
Provincial Museum, has just finished
mounting two very fino specimens of
British Columbia nnimals. One of
them is a fine female elk, which stands
over five feet in height, nnd eight feet
iu length. This animal was shot at
Comox by Mr. M. King, ond the skin
presented to tho museum. It will
form a very attractive feature of the
collection. The other animal ia a caribou, which is larger, if anything, than
the elk, having magnificent spreading
horns as veil. This beast wai killed
at Revelstoko, and purchased by the
Government fur the museum, and is a
very valuable addition to tho already
large collection, Mr. Fannin is very
buBy just now gotting the things in
shape to take possession of the old
supremo court room, which has been
converted for tho use of the musoum.
He expects to have it all in readiness
by the middle of May, and it is to be
hoped he will, as tho collection of
thousands of curious and interesting
things will be a great attraction to
vititon,—Standard

CWMw Cryfor PItcher'iCastpria
Thore is a reigu of terror iu Cape

of the Scott Act. A few nights-, ago
George K. McKeen, an active tern-,
perance man, was beaten on the p ublic
Btreets, and last night hie bar; a was
burned, The prosecution was conducted in tho name of the town olerk,
•ud Tuesday night a bomb was t brown
at this building to set it on fin.
"I.IrIiI-4 und Nhndrs."
Rev. Mr. White's lecturo last night
ui tho Oddfellow's Hall, under the nus*
pices of tho W. C. T. V. pj*pved such
an attraction that the room waa filled
-to overflowing. Mayor Hendry occupied tho chair and prefaced llio programme with some pleasant introductory remarks. After several musical
selections, Rov. Mr. Whito wai introduced and opened fire forthwith. He
said : "Oity building is a very ancient
art. Though doubtless tho first tendency of population was to diffuse itself,
yot in early times the aggregative principle in human nature would usscrt itself and tho necessity for mutual protection would lead to tho selection of
places easily fortified. Aud thus cities
wero built. As timo wont on. and tho
population increased, the walled portion of tho city would become too
small and the surplus population wonld
be gradually forced outside tlio walls.
Tho poculiar conditions of city life always afford an interesting subject of
study. Tho massing of men emphasizes good and bad qualities. Cities
have produced somo of the grandest
men and women ovor mentioned in
history, and yet tho samo cities develop
the most corrupt and degraded types of
humanity. Perhaps it is significant
that tho lirst city mwntioned in tho
biblo was built by Cain, mid Sodom is
tho first city described, The rapid
growth of cities in lato days is attracting attention, nnd tbo absorbing questions are good government and evangelization. Forces aro at work which
threaten tho gravest danger if not controlled. This is a map of tho site of a
city (pointing to ix beautiful map ou
which was marked every church, saloon,
etc., in the city) possessing more tban
ordinary natural advantages, It was
selected by Ool. Moody iu 1858 as tho
capital of the colony ; and in many respects tho choice was wiso. It has the
nd vantage of Southern exposure, unfailing water supply, fisheries, timber,
a maghificont river, surrounding agricultural country, railroad facilities,
steamboat linos, etc. Then wo have
churches, schools, all sorts of manufacturing establishments, even down to
saloons and breweries. Atthe Toronto
exhibition last year the only exhibit
marked from Now Westminster was a
couple of bottloB of beer. What would
tho visitors to tho exhibition think of
a city which only aent some beer to
compete for tho place of honor. Thnt
was not an advertisement such as wo
might be proud of. The products of
the Baloons aro "bummers" and thoy
turn out a large number of this class.
I think the agricultural society should
offer prizes for tho most complete bummers ; and if it did some of the men
now in this hall would stand n splendid
chance of obtaining firBt place. Wo
aro a progressive peoplo and wo havo
nu energetic, wido awoke council, and
nothing but criminal negligence enn
dim tho brightness of our future or
mar our glorious destiny. Much depends on the action taken now ; our
character is forming, nnd cities havo
characters as wull as individuals. This
city is dignified nnd staid. If
wo gut excited it iB in n dignified
way; and wu aro tinted us tho most religion people in Britiih Columbia and
arc rather proud of it. Our church
acconmdation is largo, membership^active, and our pastors genial and faith*
ful, shedding light on npiuny, a .home.
Our educational institutions .uro efficient and of inestimable value lo the
city. Our press is equal to auy in the
province, thoroughly independent and
usually taking an enlightened uud progressive view of public mutters, and
fully abreast of tho ago. Tho saloons
aro a cancer on tlio face of our fair
city, marring its b-uuty and poisoning
tho very lifo blood of socioty. They
arc just what tho devil wants and yot
they can bo easily wiped out by tho
city council, .which hn(e..i£ulJ,i,,po-**er.
Temperance people refuse ■ a 'compromise in nny way with, saloons; it is a
war of extermination and that war will
go on till the work ia accomplished. I
charge the saloons with degrading and
debauching tho young men of our city.
It is not tho "old toughs" who keep
the saloons going, it is the young men,
und what effect it haa on them. Even
our boyi are being depraved, we havo
the testimony of our city city officials
for this, and it must be stopped. There
is many a homo in this oity now boing
wrecked by drink. It was only last
week a young wifo in this city attempted to drown herself and her child owing to her husband having taken drink
und neglecting his home, wife aud
children. It is well known where the
police look for criminals, and it is certainly not in our churches. Go up to
the jail and ask tho prisoners what
brought them thero. You will find
the answer in almost overy case will
show that whisky had something to do
with it. It is impossible to ontor the
city without running the gauntlet i of
two or throe saloons-the entrances are
all guarded. V/u call for tho suppression of tho traffic. The council
has full control under the new charter
to restrict the trado or stop italtogoth-
er-and they will do it if convinced
the people want it.
The speaker concluded hia interesting lecturo by making a powerful appeal to parents to guard their ehildron
against tho drinking habit, and advised, as tho only sure moans, the total
restriction of the liquor trade.
CAYOOSHJREEK.
Very   Favorable   Keporis    from    mc
riaccr and Quartz Mines
Near Miiooci.
Mr. 0. H, Walworth returned from
Lillooet the other day, and gave a
very favorable account of the mining
operations and prospects on Coyoosh
creek to a representative of this paper.'
Mr. Walworth spent some timo last
year prospecting on the creek,1 and
went up about two weeks ago to locate
chiins for himself and .others. The
appearances aro considerably-better
than they wero last year, and Mr.
Walworth located threo quartz ledges,
of 1500 feet each, for himself, J;. H.
Fell, 0. E., and Chief Stewart, of
Vancouver, namod respectively tho
Crown Point, Westminster, and Vancouvor ledges. The Orown Point
lodge adjoins the famous Bonanza
location, and it is understood that the
company owning tho latter will put in
a quarlz mill almost iinmediatly.
Whilo in Vancouver, the other day,
Mr. Walworth sold 500 feet of his
claim to Messrs, Roas and Ceperely
for $500, nnd could sell all the claims
he has located at the same rates. The
placer bars further down the creek
nre paying very well, us high as
$600 a day having been takon
out recently by six men. Mr. Walworth himself secured a $3 nugget,
which is o very handsome bit of the
"precious," from two random shovels
of dirt whioh he washed. A good
many Ohinamen have been mining, op
the creek, but they are being replaced
by white men, who are securing thi?'
claims. It is expected that a steamer,
which will be imported for the purpose
in sections, over the 0. P. R., will
shortly bo put on the route between
Lytton and Lillooet—a distance of 42
miles—when the trip will be made in
ton hours, a great improvement and
convenience over tho present difficult
and roundabout route to the mines.
Mr. Walworth will return to Oayoosh
Creek in a few days and intends immediately to do the required assessment work on the three claims, 'which
have been consolidated fcr the purpose. A lively season is expected at
Lillooet and vicinity.
A shrewd citizen of Montezuma,
Ga., swapped horsoa ten times in
one day and made $125 and galloped home that night possessor of
the same horse to impart the news
to his family.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Tbe V.M.C.A.
Editou Columbian.—Kindly allow mo
space to Bay that I regret exceedingly
having omitted to mention last evening,
among tho institutions of wliich this city
has reason to be proud, the Y.M.C.A.
Several references to this organization
occurred in my notes, and their rooms
were marked on the map; but owing to
the light not being very good on the platform the notes were of little service, and
in tho hurry of speaking and the fear of
exceeding tho time allotted to the lecture
the references were not made. The
Y.M.C.A. is doing a noble work, which
is very much needed in this city, and
now that it Ib more thoroughly organized
ond haa the advantage of the services of
a general secretary it should be numbered
among the forces which wilt aid iu counteracting the evil influences spoken of,
and is entitled to {he hearty support of
all who take an interest in the moral
welfare ot the city.       J. H. Whitk.
The provincial government of Que*
beo has issued returns showing that
the population of the province, exclusive of Montreal, has decreased
239,310 in five years. The falling off
was caused by Frenoh-Canadians leaving for the New England States.
