forward to tho extension of the right
of suffrage by constitutional convention. At present, in addition to tbe
ordinary requirements uf age, citizen*
ship, etc., the voter must bo possessed
of an income of not less tbau $200 per
annum. This reqnirement has been
liberally construed, yet thoro is a demand for its abolition. Because oi the
mixed character of tho population uf
Brazil, tho minister believes tbat it
would hardly be wise tn havo unrestricted suffrage at present, but favors,
the imposition of a requirement that
after a period of four yoars from the
date of the adoption uf the new eon*]
stitution voters must, at lenst, be able
to write their names or read. This, he
believes, would stimulate p.-pular edu*

among the papers. Tho building Is practically fireproof and the flames were got-
under control within half an hour,
with damage of a thousand dollars to the

THE INVOLUTION IN BRAZIL.
Washinoton, Nov. 20.—Dp to a lnte
hour to-night no advice has been received either at tho State depaitmont
or at Lhe Bra&ilian legation from Uio-
do Janeiro regardiang the situation of
ufliiirs theie. Dr. Valente, the Brazilian miniatur, and his colleagues, Dr.
Mendoca and Sennor Pereira, the del-
egAtea to the international American
congress, did not participate in the
proceedings of the conference to-day,
but are wuiting for instructions from
tho uew government in Brazil, Minister Vi-.l-.tito regards tho views of the
duminunt Republicans, as set forth in
their manifesto, as most reasonable in
all respects, and as they have assumed
all of the obligations and debts of the
empire and have guaranteed tho fullest
measure of protection and personal
liberty to the citizens of other nations
residing in Brazil, as well as security
11 their interests, ho cannot see any
excuse for dissatisfaction abroad at the
iccent change. He thinks a constitutional convention must be assembled
in Brazil very aoon. The boundaries
or representation of the various prov
ince a will hnve to bo readjusted and
the senate reconstructed. The abolition of the senate as the first act of
the revolutionists, Dr, Valente thinks,
has been misunderstood as tending to-
warda despotism, whon, as n matter
of fact, it was a liberal movement, as
will be understood when it is generally
Known that the senators under the old
regime wore elected for life, and, it
has beon asserted, did not always continue to reflect the views of their con-

the matter be arranged that way,

lay had frequent battles with parties of

MINEEVK ON MEBCIEB.
Montreal, Nov. 17.—Regarding
Mr. Mercier's reference to the question
of annexation at Baltimore, La Mtnerre
says: "It is the first minister of the
province of Quebec who dares to speak
thus in full view of the Americans.
His words will not fail to receive comment throughout the American press
to stimulate those who desire to drown
the Oanadian nationality in the Yankee
cauldron. What Mr. Merciersaid is
a falsehood, a calumny. If the senti

of the proprietors of the Eickhoff
House, swore that he had ordered the
prisoner to keep away from hia house
on more tban one occasion. The priioner is a short, well-built man, with a
countenance that would bang him in
in the southwestern states. He claims
to he a blaeksmith, but has the appearance of a thoroughpaced blackguard.
He defended his case with all the impertinent assurance natural to suoh
ruffians, and told his honor there
was no evidence.
"What I want's is justice, mister."
"Well," said hia honor, "I think you
will get it this time." Prisoner thereupon grew quite argumentative, and
had to be choked off by tho officers of
the oourt. His honor sent Moore up
for trial on tho charge of entering a
house after dark.
Before going back to the cells the
prisoner took up the stolen clothes
and remarked, "call tbem rags, clo'es?

CAUGHT IN THE ACT.
Constable DomIbj- Nails a Birglar Isi
ihe Act or Bobbin! the Elckhufr
HoKte.
This morning, about 1 o'olock, Officer Dominy wu pacing his lonely
rounds along Front atreet. The night
was raw and bleak, not a soul could be
seen on the atreet, and the only sounds
to be heard was the moaning of the
wind, the ceaseless plash of the tide
among the piles, and the heavy echoing tread of the officer's footsteps. The
city wu wrapped in slumber, and only
the faithful guardians of the peace
seemed to be abroad to keep their solitary vigils on the deserted streets. But
there were other actors in night's dim
drama on the real stage of life, and u
the officer came near the Eickhoff
House a shadowy form stole out from
the deeper shadows by the wall, and
crept stealthily and with noiseless
steps along tbe sidewalk. The suspicion! of the constable were at once
aroused. He recognized before him
the possible felon stalking to his nefarious work; grasping the trusty baton and bending his gaze keenly on the
dark figuro before him, he watched it
as it went. Around the corner stole
tho man, followed by the policeman;
tho latter saw the fellow open the side-
door of the Eickhoff House and enter;
then the door was shut, The officer
waited. In about three minutes the
sound of hurrying footsteps fell upon
his ear; the door opened and the unknown man ran into tbe officer's arms.
The latter took from his prisoner a
pair of stolen pants and vest, and commenced the journey to the police station; the prisoner all the way abusing
the officer in vigorous fashion, pouring
out torrents of oaths and curses. A
companion of the captured man, with
several stolen coata over his arm, wu
seen, but the officer was unable to
effect his capture. At the police station the prisoner gave his name u
Ohisley Handsaw. This morning he
changed it to Thomas Moore. His
honor in court this morning remarked
that he was surprised that a gentleman
having so distinguished a name ihould
stoop to purloinsuoh unpoetical raiment
u a pair of pants and an old vast. Mr.
Simeon Huff was the person whose
vest and pants were stolen, and the
hand of the midnight thief ravished
them away as the owner slept. Several witnesses were called and all the
evidence showed conclusively that the
prisoner was a Ud man, and that he
had, beyond the shadow of a doubt,

Elector.
After some general conversation be*
tween X and Y the former saya:
"I hear you are down on Cunningham."
Y—"Well, I'm going to voto for Corbould, if that's what you mean,"
X—"Do you think lie's a safe man!"
Y—"Much safer than Cunningham,
anyway."
X—"Whatmakes you think ao?"
Y—"Well, for one thing, hiB canvas is
straighten He appnala to the electon
on bis own merits—Cunningham keeps
on making insinuations about other
people's bad faith."
X—"You mean about Major's Vancouver Interests, I suppose; well, I know
Major too well to believe there's anything crooked about him."
Y—"I thought you did; by tha way,
he invested $12,000 in Westn luster pro-
Eertythe other day—looks like going
aek on us, does itt"
X—"Not much; but Coitould hu
property at Vancouver."
"k —"Yea, and here, too, and he's selling there and investing In W-stmiuster.
But did you ever figuro up tho. two can*
didates on the Vancouver racket?"
X—"What do you mean?"
Y—"Well, take it this way. Suppose
Vancouver goes to smash, what would
Corbould lose?"
X—"What property ho hu there, I
ppose."
Y—"Just so; now if Westminster
went, how then?"
X—"Well, he'd loaewhathe hu here,"
Y—"Yes, about the same amount of
property—but what else?"
X—"His business would suffer."
Y— "I should think so. He'd simply
have to begin the world over again.
How now about Cunningham? If Westminster went to smash, what would ho
lose?"
X—"His property, of course."
Y—"Would he? think a minuto. The
speculative value would sink, of course;
but wouldn't it be just as good a market
garden u evor? Now if Vancouver went
to the doss, what would he lose?"
X—"Haa he anything there?"
Y—"I should smile. His chief market
is there. Half of Westminster grows its
own fruit. It'a from Vancouver that
Cunningham draws his dollar..."
X-'-I dld'nt think of that."
Y—"I knew you didn't. Now, Cor*
bould's business is right here, and ho
sinks or swims with Westminster; but
Cunningham's business Is principally in
Vancouver. As long as Vancouver goes
ahead, he's all right, even if Westminster
did go down. Now, what do you think
about Cunningham's Insinuations?"
, X—"They do look rather mean,"
Y—"I should think so; he's juat reckless about what mud he throws, or what
bad blood he makes, as long as ho can
catch votes."	
All the morning papers, says a late

Gbbat Britain still reaches out for
additional slices of this planet, The
peoplo of Swaziland—mighty men
in war, and always faithful allies
of tho English—are in a peck of
trouble on account of the disputes
between Transvaal Boers, who have
obtained concessions covering a large
extent of the grazing lands of the
country, and adventurers of various
nationalities, holding mining concessions. Swaziland is almost embraced by the Transvaal, which
bounds it on three sides, and the
Boors have long coveted tho country. The Swazis, however, lean to
a British protectorate, and some advances have already been made in
that direction, A commissioner has
now been sent out, as matters seem
to be arriving to a head, owing part
ly to the disputes of concessionaries,
already referred to, and partly to
the fact that the king of the country is rapidly killing himself in an
attempt to determine whether he
prefers champagne or gin.
Truth lias evidently been badly
bit, and in a gasping and distraught
manner squirms all over a column
or bo this morning. We have already expressed our opinion as to
tho common-sense and practical interpretation to be put upon the
brie* clause in the act referring to
tbo appointment of water commissioners, and shall leave our cotemporary to tangle itself up with legal
quibbles indefinitely. A man with
a votiden head can seo plainly
enough that the action of tho council i'i providing for the election by
thf ratepayers of three water commissioners is much more in harmony
with the letter of the law (for which
ibe morning paper pretends in one
bre_. h to be such n stickler) than

Frank Forrest made a thorough good
job of Columbia street, from Mary
Btr et r._the..__so™ic-I.O.O.F. block,
and .hat the roadway is good yet,
though only gravel waa used. There-
foriE- it i.. argued, good macadam
would till the hill on all our streets
for years to come. Block pavement
is costly, and often proves unsatisfactory, and the cost of a comparatively small experiment in that direction would pay for a rock crushing machine which would supply
first class macadam (there's any
amount of tho raw material to hand),
and enable us to put and keep all
our streets in the pink of condition
for yoars to coine. It would certainly do no barm to go into figures
on tlie question, find out what one
of these machines would cost, and
make estimates of the expense of
operating it, and so forth. We go
in for park improvements aud the
more ornamental side of progress
generally j but, if wo want the city
to grow, wo must manage to keep
the streets in such shape that people can get around comfortably.
Tm; territory of New Mexico is
an applicant for admission to the
American Union as u state, and asa
preliminary step it has just framed
a now constitution, the provisions of
wliich with regard to education aro
interesting. The first of those is as
follows: "Provision shall be made
by law for the establishment
and maintenance of a uniform
system of publio schools, which shall
be open to nnd sufficient for the
education of all tho children in the
state, and shall be under the absolute
control of tbe state, and free from
sectarian or church control j and no
other or diflercnt schools shall ever
receivo any aid or support from
public funds. No sectarian tennet,
creed, or church doctrino shall be
taught in the publio schools." It is
provided, also, in the seoond seotion
that no part, of the school funds
"shall ever bo applied toward the
maintenance, support, or aid of any
school or other institution in
tho management of which any religious or other sect has any part, or
which is not undsr tho absolnte control of the state." Both of these
provisions are to be irrevocable
without the consent of the United
States and the people of the new
itate. The latter evidently intend
to keep, clear from tho outset of the
difficulties whioh are now preplexing
some of tho older states.

TnE English newspapers to hand
are full; of speculations as to the
suitability of ZUUford Haven as a
port of oall for passengers from this
side of tho Atlantic. Tho Oity of
Home has already, it seems, made
tho experiment, and bo successful
were the results that tho Milford.
Docks Oo, are determined to mako
that placo a terminus as- well as a
port of call. Nothing of any moment can be dono this year, the sen sou
being too far advanced, but it is
hoped that next year ono or more
of the Atlantic liners may be induced to make the more southern
port thoir point of departure. The
questions naturally arise, How about
Liverpool. What are the superior
inducements offered by Milford
Haven? Tho Haven is a largo
deep and land-locked bay which can
be entered at any state of tho tide.
The dock, moreover, has two acres
of water area and a quayage of over
7,000 feet, whilst the lock, being
70 feet wide, will admit the largest
steamers. The traveller to London
will save from ten to twelve hours
by tho Milford Haven route, whilst
the expense will be considerably
less.
As tho Liverpool men point out,
however, Milford to snap tbo trade
must prove her suitability for freight
as well as passenger traffic. .The
cargoes frequently consistfof perishable goods, such as moat, bacon,
fruit, &.c, and it is absolutely essential that they should be handled
with expedition. At Liverpool delays often occur at the bar, which
cannot bo crossed except during
three hours of each tide. That the
Liverpool people are awake to the
necessity of pntting their house in
order, is evident from the fact that
the dock board is being urged to
make the port easy of access nt all
times, regardless of all expense. It
is beiug pressed upon them, too, to
make better arrangements for facilitating the disembarkation of passengers and luggage, In fact, it may
be inferred that, whatever happens,
the travelling public are going to
benefit, from the fact that both Milford and Liverpool are evidently
straining every sinew to catch tbe
fleeting shekels which filter into
every seaport.
Liverpool is a great port, a wonderful place, but the next few years
will prove whether she can hold her
own. The Manchester ship canal is
yet unfinished, but before very long
the ocean vessels will bo riding
straight into Cottonopolis, and then,
who can say what is to happen 1
Smaller enterprises than this (wliich
is a great one) have altered the
centres of commerce beforo to-day.
But two generations ago, and Horn-
ton was the busy spot around which
the lace industry centred, but Nottingham today makes the lace, and
it is only in tho solitary places of
Devonshire thut one occasionally
meets with a laco worker still plying ber avocation, so completely has
the manufacture died out. The
button trade of Dorsetshire, too, is
gone, and without apparent reason.
Wo may well, therefore, ask, in
view of the talked of advantages of
Milford Haven asa port of call and
a terminus, and considering the immense commercial revolution which
the Manchester ship canal is destined to effect, how will Liverpool
bear the competition that is to bo
forced upon her 1
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
An exchange says:—Tht' conductor on thu Windsor it Annapolis
Bailway, in a warning issued to
parents of the boys in tbe habit
of jumping on trains while in motion,
remarks ; "We do not want the
parents to be under the expense of
mourning, whicli will surely be the
ease if the practice is not stopped,
for let the boys bo smart as Bteel
traps they may get under the wheels
when they least expect it." The
admonition is as applicable ou other
lines as on tiie one mentioned.
America is not to have a monopoly
of the world's fair business in 1892,
Spain proposes to celebrate Columbus' discovery in grand style, and a
government commission bas just bceu
appointed to take charge of the preparations, while the cortes is to be
asked to vote a large sum of money
to defray the expenses. Among
otber propositions is oue to hold an
international exposition at Mudrid,
to be opened on the 3rd of August,
1892, the day of tho month beiug
the one on which Columbus set out
on his first famous voyage, and it is
proposed to close on tho following
Uth of October, the lattor day being the day on whicli Columbus first
touched land, the island of San Salvador. There ia some difference of
opinion, however, as to whether
Spain is entitled to any special share
in the honor of Columbus' discovery.

It is quite within the range of
possibility, thinks an exchange, that
the famous record of a mile in 2.08}
made by Maud S. at Cleveland in
1885 may be broken, or at least
equalled, before the end of another
turf season. The time made by
Senator Stanford's filly Sunol at
San Francisco the other day is only
a second and three-quarters behind
that of the great trotter, and horsemen say that 2.10£ by a three-year-
old is better than 2.08} by a horse
eleven years old, the latter being the
age at which Maud S. made hor record. With the greater strength
and experience which another year
or two will give hor, Sunol ought
to be able to develop the two seconds
better speed necessary to place her
at the top of the list, Her recent
performance has even revived speculation as to tho possibility of a milo
in two minutes, and after tho manner in which the gallant little Oanadian horse Ilosebery knocked tho
jumping record out of sight in Chicago two weeks agoturfmen may well
begin to think that it is not safo to
talk any longer of impossibilities.

Election   Address.
To the Electors of New Westminster City:
GENTLEMKN'-As yon are aware, I
have, in reply lou very inlliienlliilly siirn-
i'il iv-iiil. itlon, come forward us a ratiill-
dnle ior the representation of this city in
the Li-i.i-'lntiireof the Province, and now
beg niOKt respectfully lo Mil lei t the vole
nml influence of every elector.
As New Westminster is the natural
cph I re and distributing point of the dis-
n-letjtt will be the duty of your reprcsenla*
tlvo lo n. slst In evory wny within Ills
power the efforts of tho dl.trlol members
insecure Ibe construeMoii of the many
public) works, especially ron Isund bridges,
which thegient and growing itnporimice
of tlie district, makes necessary. In this
connection I would specially mention tho
roads needed to connect us wit li the North
Arm nnd Mnplo Ridge selfiements. and us
I intend hoartlly LO support and hope to
worltcindially with tlie Government, I
trust that. If elected, I shall be ablo lo
render important services In this direction.
Within our own coiislllucm-y scvct.il
important matters In the Mime Um* will
demand llie special attention of your representative. A court houso of the hIko
and style Miluildo lo the dimensions
which our ciiy will certain lynlmln in ihe
nenrfiiture must be circled diirlngflie
coming year, und It will, in my opinion,
bo the duty of lho Government to assist
materially by subsidy lu the construe Hot)
of (lie free truJIlc brW'-o which must shortly connect us wllh the southern bunk of
the Fraser, iw that bridge Is certainly a
work of provincial and not merely of
local importance.
Uut tho most important .question It ono
of iidlirereiu nature, and one, happily, In
the trentment of which your representative will bo largely favored by ulrcum-
Btanct-B--I allude to the redistribution of
seats. Tho timo hns fully come when
uestlon should bo dealt with In a
broad and general way. In nny bucIi rearrangement, representation by population must be made the basis of re-adjnst-
ment. It will be the duty of your representative to see that this eity Is given ft.
full rights In this matter-ami ns the settlement of this question will uffectourinterests for years to come, I pledgo myself,
If elected, to spare no effort tn Beciiro full
Justice to both city and district in this
respect,
Should a. division of tho British Columbia Agricultural Association take place,
li. will bo I ho duty of your representative to
soo that there Is no reduction In tho urrnnt
made to tho association in nid of tho Exhibit on In this city; In.eed, looking to
the growing importance of the ex hi billons,
tho Government should irlve favorablo
consideration to tlio question of lucre™,
lag that grant.     .  ;     ,, ,
The Government should, In my opinion,
deed to tho city all public lands wllhln Its limits not actually required for tho
uso of tho Government.
As the representative of n growing and
progressive city, it would be my ondonvor
m watoh every opportunity of attracting
to New Westminster new industries and
new meiins for the development of wealth;
ami in obtain for such any necessary ns*
slstanco from tho Government.
As tills ts tho closing session of ihe
present parliament, I need not delafl my
views flu to gonorai legislation; but there
Is one point which demands Immediate
attention, An act should bo passed conferring upon every citizen the right to
bring suit against lhe Government, a-* tho
law now stands tbeoonsehtof the Government must, be Obtained before any such
aellon can he brought and this confers
upon the Government power that tboy
..hould not possess.
With this brief expression of my views,
and again soliciting your support, I am
gontlomon,
Your obedient servant,

A coiTCopoudcut staning herself
"Woman," and withholding her name,
cends us a communication, not for publication, sho says, "but morely to show
how inconsistent editors ns well as
othor peoplo are whon it Buit3 them."
The writer thinks wo might lot the
cow nuiaanca reBt for a while, ns' 'thero
are always two sides to a question, and
wo hnvo to endure other things which
aro worse than the cow nuisance,
which you say nothing about." The
"other things' are put, not inaptly, in
thia way: "For instance, a lonely
woman, sitting by the death-bed of a
lovely child in the dead hour of night,
and having to witness the spasms of
tho Uttle suffering ono caused by tho
screeching and horrible whistles
ot tho steamboats; it ia hard
enough for well people, but
worse for those who aro forced to en
dure it. Then whon you go down
town for a few little thinga, to hnvo to
pass those miserable holos of infamy
and drunkenness, and havo a half-
dozen of those loungers ataring at you
nnd crowding you off tho sidewalk na if
they never aaw a woman. The city
council is to blame fur tins, 1 believe,
from what I am told." Our anonymous correspondent notes what aro
certainly two very roal grievances.
We havo iu the pnst on more than
occasion done out best to have the
steamboat whistle nuisance abated, nnd
what havo tho city fathers to Bay t>
tho charge that they nre responsible
for the two evils bo graphically portrayed abovo by an evident sufferer
from both?

Tho Victorians will not believe that

following, viz: Rogers, Ward, Fisher,
Robert., Drake, Hibben, Kennedy,
Haughtm, Crease, Wilson, Pemberton, Clarke, Church, Drummond,
Musgrave, Bernard, und Fawcett.
Although tho New Westminster team
is Btated to bo woak, tho men of the Victoria team know it to bo a strong one,
and will have all their work cut out
for thom. Tho New Westminster men
have been practising hard and are in
good condition, whilo Victoria must
try aud turn the tables on tho New
Westminster men, who beat' them last

Mr. S. J. Thompson, the photo

in tho shape of a Christmas card, which
ought to bo tho beat Xmas gift on tho
market. The card is entitled "Grand
Medley of British Columbia scenory."
The views, 32 in number, embracing
all tho prineipnl cities and points of
interest iu tho province, aro indeed
grand. The finish et each individual
viow, though ou a grently reduced
scale from the original picture, ia perfect, und tho smallest object in them is
wonderfully distinct. Of course, Mr.
Thompson has none but the best views,
and this naturally enhances tho value
of tho card. As a Christmas souvenir
to frionds in tho old country, or in the
eastern provinces, the card ia just the
thing, beaidea which it ia one of the
boat advertisement, of British Columbia ovor issued.

Tho first session of the county court
at Chilliwack since the elevation uf
Judgo Bolo to the bench, wna held on
tho 18th inst. The only cna _ of importance waa that of Wells vs. Prout,

Tho entertainment given iu tho opera
house laat night was, from a financial
point of view, a dismal failure. There
were about sixty porsons present nnd
they looked n long wny from anywhere
in the big hnll. The performance itself wna "up to the murk," several uf
the pieces being equal to prof est* in rial
within the same Hues. The sinning of
Mr. P. J, Thicke was much appreciated by the audience. His selection
from Vincent Wallace's splendid opora
of "Mnrituna," "The flower that
bluonieth-.' was given with a finish and
clearness rather unusual here. The
other selections sung by Mr. Thicke,
"The gates of tho West," nnd "The
Bong that reached my heart," fully
bore out the assertion thnt has been
m ido that he is one of the finest tenor
soloist., in this city. When singing
the encore, "Tho song thnt reached
my heart," Mr. Thicke, having hnd to
surrender his muaic to the accompanist
und having had only one day's notice
to prepare, forgot a line and hnd to
finish abruptly, ilo enmo out later
and made up for this fully by singing
tho Irish comic song, "Clara Nolan's
Ball." Tho fencing bout, although
rather a one-sided matoh, waa interest-
nig, but the audience did not seem to
appreciate tint kind uf work. The
music givon by tho string band waa
excellent, nnd boro evidence uf careful
training. Thia waa their first appearance in public, and it may safely ho
put down na a successful one. The
orRnnizors of tho exhibition have perhaps themselves to blume for it. financial failure, ns thero was not nearly
enough printers' ink used. The
wholesome fact is more deeply impressed in their minds than ever, thnt,
"there's nothing liko advertising."
Ono thing, however, mny alao bo noted
nud that is that the show wna in many
ways far superior to moat of the "professional ahowa" that come round nnd
calmly demand your dollar, nud givo
you next to nothing in return.
