The Empress ol Austria, says
London Truth, contemplates a voyage to the West Indies to be followed by tt tour through the United
Status. Tho Empress, who is now
at Oorfu, is suffering tortures from
rheumatism of the most aculo type,
whioh is quite breaking down her
norvous system. She is attended
by two lady doctors, who wore trained by the celebrated Dr. Metzger,
of Amsterdam, and they give her
tho massage treatment overy  day.
The name of the United Statei as
a marriage market has extended, it
would appear, to Russia. The great
democratic republic has become the
Tim Tiddler's ground of the poor
noblemen ol Europe. In it they can
pick up the money, whioh it all
that they need to render them the
lords of society if not of creation,
while all they need to give in return
is their name. This is an interesting development ol the attempt to
unite a democratic form of government and of society with a system
whioh creates a class of privileged
plutocrats.
The King of Siam is a jolly old
fellow and a handsome entertainer.
Some Pennsylvania*1* visited him at
his oourt awhile ago and were received with royal hospitality. They
were ushered into a sumptuous reception-room, where they drank native liquor out of gold mugs, and
then were regaled for dinner of
twenty courses, the tableware being
solid silver of the costliest design.
They were afterwards amused by
the palace acrobats and given a ride
on the King's elephants, The King
is as free and easy at a Chicago candidate for alderman: he likes
Americans, and there are no such
difficulties in the way of presentation to his Majesty as prevail
at European courts.

The New York Herald ot Nov,
14 says:—The earth it now patting
through the great stream of meteors
which has caused so many celebrated star showers in the historic
period. If we could get accurate
records of these November displays
in ancient times, the myraids of
meteors, known a* th. Leonids,
that have bombarded the earth
wonld appear incredible and alarming. Happily for our planet, it*
atmosphere, many milea deep, interposes over our heads an invisible
shield, which but very few of these
heavenly projectiles can penetrate.
The large majority of them are melted and volatilized by heat developed in the arrest of their motion by
the air. The earth will pan this
time through an attenuated part of
the metior ring, and will not encounter its thickest part untill 1899.
While, therefore, no such star shower as was seen on November 13,
1866, can be now expected, meteors
enough may be observed to show
that we are in the orbit of tho
Leonids.
Ipain seems to be awakening
from the social lethargy into whioh
she has been plunged for so long a
period. One of the signs of the
times is that the working classes
nre commencing to agitate for reforms, and are demanding many of
the rights granted to their more
fortunate brethern in England and
America. At the recent National
Congress of workingmen which met
as Barcelona it was determined to
enter upon a vigorous political
agitation, and a platform was adopted based upon the following demands: Universal suffrage, tho
eight-hour system, and the payment
of equal wages to women and men
doing the lame work. In regard to
tho last plank the Spanish labour
party is a littlo in advance of the
organizations in EngUih-tpeaking
countries, and were it possible to
enforce by legislative enactment the
equal payment of men and women
workers, it is probable the effect
would be to excludo the women
from many employments upon which
they are now allowed to enter simply because they demand less wages
than men-
The pretence of the Prince of
Wales it always in demand. Hit
great popularity increases with time,
and when he can be secured to preside over some ceremonial the success of the affair is assured, As
good natured as he is popular, tho
Prince is never known to refuse invitations which involve a certain
amount of monotonous duty on his
part. If he can contribute to the
success of a hospital endowment or
an educational soheme by attending
the laying of a corner stone or a
publio meeting to raise fundi, he
cheerfully puts himself at the disposal of the promoters of tuch movements. Tbe value of royal countenance in this way it generally recognized as a mott important element. The Prince of Wales was
lately asked to be preient at the
next Welsh eisteddford (in 1889),
but his engagements, he replied,
would prevent him from attending
on the dates selected by the committee, August 20 and following
days, but he could go in the beginning of September, and left it to the
committee to say whother or not
they cared to alter the dates. The
eisteddfod managers unanimously resolved to change the time of the
festival so that the Prince and
Princess of Wales oould attend.

Friday Evening. Nov. 30, IS8S.
Our corrrespondent "Parent'
raises a question and makes a suggestion that are well worthy of emphasizing. It is true that British
Oolumbia, all things considered,occupies a creditable, if not enviable,
position with regard to her ordinary
school facilities; but it is open to
serious question whether the present school system, at its best, is
well fitted to give the youth of tbo
country a practical start for life,
at all commensurato with their
needs, or with the time spent in
acquiring their so-called education.
Unless supplemented by special
education of various kinds, the curriculum of the public, and added,evon,
that of the high, schools, manifestly
does not fit tho pupil, who has gone
through both, for anything in particular. Some, of course, undeniably, are fitted for a higher course
of study, which they subsequently
successfully prosecute, but the great
majority, beyond what they have
acquired of the "three R's," have
been simply wasting their time, and
have to begin, after leaving school,
to get their real education. Our
correspondent colls attention to the
necessity which exists for several
business schools or commercial colleges in the province, and suggests
the establishment of one in this
city, He slso states that it would
be encouraged and supported. From
what we can learn, and from a
general view of tbe circumstances,
we believe that it would. In fact,
we an informed that money would
be liberally subscribed to establish
such an institution. A prominent
citizen, we have been informed, is
forced to sond several of bis children
to Spokane, W. T., whore there is a
good commercial college, so that
they may bo grounded in the rudiments of a business education. If
this sort of thing continues, and
attains any dimensions, as thore is
reason to fear it may, unless tho demand is met at home, it will prove
no inconsiderable drain on the
monetary resources of the city and
province. It is not creditable to
us, either, that the necessity exists;
while tho prestige of this oity, and
of the province, as a desirable place
for the better class of immigrants
would be very much increased by
the establishment of good business
colleges here and in tho other cities
of the provinco. Let us take the
lead and found such an institution
in the royal city at any rate. An
industrial school is another desideratum, without which our educational
system will always be lop-sided and
inefficient. We hope to see steps
taken in this direction ahortly by
the proper authorities, Industrial
schools, we believe, have become to
bo regarded chiefly a* reformatories,
and as suoh they fulfil, in the present state of society,an indispensable
function; but it is tolerably nfe to
assume that if restlen, mischievous,
and criminally disposed juveniles
were earlier graduated from
tho public schools—for whose studies
vory often they have no liking, but
rather an aversion, and with little
capacity or desire for progress—into
properly equipped and conducted
industrial schools, they would in
most cases find congenial occupation and entertainment in one or
other of the manifold operations of
such an institution, ond thus would
never know the humiliating necessity of a reformatory. These two
things—a commercial or business
college and an industrial branch
school—are wanted to complete our
educational facilities, and the sooner
they are established the better. We
believe that the school system of the
country itself could be so; modified
as to embrace both, but the matter
of the business college we should
take into our hands immediately.
Speaking of the recent and
projected improvements in means
for bringipg the celestial worlds
within easy reach of the prying
optic* of earth's curious mortals, an
exchange gives the following interesting forecast: The ohancos are
that the moon will be a* well known
to Idle inhabitant* of the civilized
world a* the interior ol Africa at
the preient time. The telescope
manufactured by order of tbe late
millionaire Liok for the university
knownby hi* name in California
has enjoyed tbe distinction of being
th. largest and strongest in tho
world, but it i» likely to undergo a
comparative eolipte. Mr. Abram
Clark, who made it, haa undertaken
th. to*k of making one yet larger
and: imm. powerful. Should he
tuooetd, as he is perfectly confident
that be will, valuable additions may
be expected to be- made. to. our
knowledge of the world, by which
we »re lurrounded. In a recent
talk on the subjeot Mr. Clark dis-
► olosed some facta quite contrary to
general belief in regard to astronomy. Itfca*,bwn popularly sup-
pond that we had reached themax-
imumof effeotive telescopes. Tbe
big one*,:the leading astronomers
told us,duvj!o*ed little of the heavens'
wond-rs. And they pointed out
that ibe mott import»nt diieoveries
of tho present century had beon
made by telescopes of a medium
size. Henoe the deduction that it
was useless to bother with larger
lenses. Suoh a theory, of course,
gives us little of practical value to
hope for from astronomy. With
the telescopes now in use we could
expect to determine more accurately
the distance from the earth to tho
sun, or to lay bare more stars, But
in discoveries of this kind tlio great
mass of humanity con scarcely be
expeoted to take any very great
interest. It was a verdict of most
of tho professionals that tho Lick
telescopo would be a failure, so far
as adding anything to practical
knowledge of the heavenly sphere
was concerned, but in this, as in
many other instances, they wero
mistaken. It has already been demonstrated that, properly constructed and located, a big telescope
is more effective than one of smaller
size. It has been shown, in fact,
that there is practically no limit to
the power of a telescope, and that if
a sufficiently powerful one can be
made, we can bring most of tho
planets near enough to examine
their overy nook and corner. Tho
lens of the now instrument for the
university at Los Angeles is to be
40 inches diameter, and Mr. Clark
claims tlmt he is able to make one
i five feet in diameter—one tbat .will
I bring the moon within a few thousand foet of the earth. It is simply
a question of time and money—
mainly money, as a telescope with a
five foot lens, properly mounted,
would cost a million dollars. If Mr.
Clark's position is true, and there is
every reason to believe that it is,
astronomy, a science which hns been
at a stand for years, will take giant
strides. There will be practically
no limit to the discoveries it can
make, and there should come from
it some practical benefits. Each
year we will know more of the
heavens, and of all sciences astronomy will be changed from the slowest to the most progressive.
Thb True Philosophy of Medication is not to dose for symptoms but
to root out tlio diaenso. Northrop
k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, the Great Blood Purifier,
has proved itself equal to this task. It
is moat searching, without boing a violent
remedy for constipation, Biliousness and
Indigestion. It is aa woll adapted to the
needs and physical temperaments of
delicate females as to the more robust
sex, and is a fine preventative of disease
as well as remedy for it

DEAR SIRS:—I bought one of your Maxwell Bindets last
July, and it has,given me the best of satisfaction in every respect,
My grain and straw was very heavy, and a good deal of it was
badly lodged, and I thought it could not be cut by machine, but
thanks to the Maxwell machine, it picked it up and cut it like a
charm, I have visited many of the surrounding farms but have
yet failed to see any grain cut so clean as mine. I feel proud of
the machine and would strongly recommend the Maxwell above
all others. Yours faithfully,
dwnogto James Faulkner.

Story of a Yonng Oallfornlan Who *T«D

icomightim.)
The recent discovery ot a Chinese
leper, named Sam Ling, over tn Newark,
and the consequent local excitement
thereupon have had quite a marked effect
Inre-awakcning N6w Yorkers to aoon*
niousneca (/-at there la a vast deal of thla
horrible disease wherever there are Chinamen, and that Kew York has a large
Chinese population. Out ot prudent consideration for tbe prejudices of white
people, who generally believe the disease*
Inf ectlouc—an opinion not shared by ths
Chinese—our Mongolian neighbors generally take vory good cue to hide away
their lepers.
Only a few weeks since, an American
physician here, learning from a Chinese
convert where there was a leper In a far
advanced stage of the disease, sought to
view the case for the purpose of making a
study of it. He found the house, on Mott
Street, where the man was secreted, bnt
was met on the stairs by a couple of Chinamen who made him understand by
signs that they wonld chop his head with
A couple of very ugly looking hatchets
that they brandished If he persisted In
trying to penetrate any farther. He fled,
but returned the next day, accompanied
by a health officer armed with authority
to search the house, It was too late,
however. Tho leper had been spirited
away during' the night, and whether he Is
still kept somewhere in the, swarming
hive of Mott street, or was shipped off to
Belleville or Newark, none but Chinamen
know, and.they will not tell.
Whether leprosy is really infections
er not, Californlans —who have had
moro opportunities to study Chinese life
than we ot the East have enjoyed—think
that it is, and certainly a good many
white people have died of It on the Pacifio
Slope. I was perfectly coxnlzant ot one
euch case that waa painfully tragic. A
young man, treasurer and general manager of a flourishing brewing company,
In which he owned an Interest, boarded
where I did, on O'Farrell street. I do not
think that I ever knew a more genial,
generous, clever aud popular, young fellow thanhewos. One day he called me
Into his room and directed my attention
to a singular spot ou the right side of his
neck, where the collar ordinarily covered
it. It was about the size of a dime, round,
and looked as If painted with zluc-white,
or rather as If all color had been extracted
from the tissues there.- "Do you know
what that 1st" he asked me. I hesitated.
While I believed tbat I knew-forlhad
already been examining leprosy considerably—it seemed too awful a thing to
think tbat my handsome, talented, blithe
young friend, whom we all liked so muoh
tor his manly worth, had upon him the
Ineffaceable brand of that most horrible
doom. "I believe yon suspect what It Is,
as I do," he went on, "bnt we will seo
how It progresses. We may both bo
wrong."
Some six weeks later he called me In
again to look at tho spot. It had grown
to the bigness of a silver quarter. And
another spot was showing. No doubt
was possible. He was doomed,  "I know
When I caught it; three years ago," here-
" marked.   We wasted no words discussing the sltuatiou, for we both knew that
his condition was hopeless. He simply
firmed my baud, saying, "Don't mention
b to -anybody." I said, "No." A few
days passed, tn whtch he seemed as light-
hearted as ever. Meanwhile, as we afterward learned, ho was quietly and systematically closing up all his business affairs. Then ono night as we met lu the
hall he shook hands and said, "Goodbye." I understood htm correctly, but
could not, under the circumstances, disapprove of his purpose. He went out—
aud did not return. Two or three days
elapsed. The landlady—a pretty little
widow, as good as ahe was charming, to
whom he was engaged to be married—
was very anxious about him. At his
place of business there .was muoh wonderment over his disappearance. His
friends, and he had many, were all exercised about htm. The news reached ns
that away down In Santa Rosa, In a
lonely plaoe by the bank ot a stream, had
been found the body of a young man,
handsome and well dressed, but withont
anything about him to give any clue to
i hie Identity, A bullet hole was through
hie head and a revolver, with one chamber empty, was itill olutohtd in his right
hand. It was eur friend. He had pnt a
stop to his leprosy, the only one possible
-death. JAMEI B. COMKBLLT*
and photographed it down to a size to
suit the bodies he had on hand ready for
coml'Ination,
"There ure various ways for providing
fiuipiisiu'* results in photography, thin-i-a
that ip ono age would, have bean called
magic but in ours recognised as scientific
tricks. Tho ghost piatqre,for instance,
tn which n shadowy ghost--through which
material objects are visible—ts seen between natural attitudes and occupations.
That is produced, by an almost tnstan-
tnncous exposure of the figure that is to
do duty as tbe ghost, followed by a full
exposure of tbe figures and properties
thnt aro to appear natural. Another
novel trick wns shown recently tn apho-
to'impli reproduced by a prominent trade
journal, which presented the photographer, seated at a table, playing chess
with liimsulf sitting on the opposite side
of tho table, while he, himself, stood up
in tho biick-{round looking at his two
selvc.i playing. Tho figures were all on
tho -mme negative, which was produced
by tlirea micc--sslve exposures of tbe plate,
parts thereat being masked each time by
a black velvet shutter. Still another trick
Is tbat by wlileh a person who likes that
sort, of tiling, may appear to be photo*
graphed rilling upon n (lying goose, or a
fish, or any other desired style of ridiculous locomotion. This Is done by the
subjuct holding upon bis lap a huge piece
of white or eky-ttnted card with the fanciful figure diawn upon tt. His face
appears nbove the upper edge of the card
and seems, in the picture, joined to the
fuuny littlo bo-Iy mounted on the
goose or fish. The statue picture la made
by about the same device. But none of
these, or* any. other; Ingenious trick yet
Invented will enable a rascal'to make an
Indecent- picture of a girl without her
complicity, so that Its fraudulent character cunnot be detected:0 •**•**

—.Remarks on a Brooklyn Scandal*
Con composite photographs-1. e„ mads
•t different heads and bodies joined—be
so produced that they will not show their
patchwork quality? That is the question
deeply exercising the families and friends
of a Urge number of Brooklyn belles just
at present, and, sympathetically or other-
wise, many other people oso Interested in
it. Among the glaringly nnd shockingly
Improper pictures recently seised byCom-
stookln possession c I an amateur photographer named Brown, who made a business of vending such things, were numbers of tbe vilest character, In which the
female faces presented were those of
yonng ladles of previously uulmpeached
respectability, moving ln Brooklyn's best
society. They and their friends affirm
that these pictures were made by the
wicked photographer taking heads from
decent portraits, fixing them upon pictures in lewd attitudes or simple nudities and then making negatives tram
those combinations, Brown has told contradictory stories about how they were
produced or obtained and Is not -worthy
of belief anyway. If the pictures were
made np the work must have been very
skillfully done, (or ln some of them, tt is
averred, the joining line ts not visible, to
the naked eye at least,
Mr. T.C. Roche, "the father ef photof-
rapby"—as he Is known to photographers
all over this wintry-being conialted
upon the subject,said;
"It is possible to Join hoods and bodiei
tn that way, so that the line Is absolutely
imperceptible only when a collar, necklace or something else Is about the neck
to conceal It, It is quite true that, where
there Is nothing ot the sort, the negative
made from the combination may be so
very skillfully touched up as to hide the
UM from Uw unassisted eye of om who ll
sot a professional, but the expert will do-
toot It, even withont a gloss, and anybody
with a strong glow will probably make
It out, Aphtrtofraphmade ln that way
that I oould nob detect I wonld regard ns
little short of miraculous, You probably ■
remember that uot a long while since a
rascal in .London woo sentenced to long
Imprisonment-W or IS years, I thlnk-
for making ond vending obscene pictures,
made In that way, with Mary Anderson's
beautiful head upontliem. It Is nottrue.
as bak been stated by a certain New York
paper, that the Joining line of those nlo-
tnrea oould not be distinguished and that
Br. Griffith-Mary's etap-fathe.—had to
abandon the prosecution because it was
Imposslblo to prove that the pictures bad
been made tn that way, The line was
shown and the rami wm punished as he
richly deserved to be. He hod taken a
large photographic portrait of thelody,
which could be obtained tn iny quantity,
A PLAOE OF THE DEAD.
fhe  Kew York Horgae-A Grim and
Ghastly Subject for Artist and Author.
"Ho was found in the East River."
"How did lie get there t"
"Who knows?" said the keeper of the
morgue, shaking his head as he turned
iway from the unfortunate piece of clay
that bad been the subject of our conversation.
The question that has no answer could
bo spoken over many a pine box with its
grewsome contents lying tn the city
morgue. There will probably never bo
an answer iu tbe case alluded to, for tho
body bore no marks by which It could bo
ldctiLifluil, and the tide may havo carried
it a utrauge journey to tbe spot wboro it
was fonnd. The owner had been a poor
man, to judge by appearances, and, very,
likely, finding himself without work, be
went down to tho river, and from there ho
will go to the Potter's Field byway of the
morgue nnd that will bo the end.
Christmas time Is generally prolific ln
suicides, for then the man without n home
and tho woman wbo dares not return to
the homo that waits for her find tbe contrast sharper. The cold, too, Increases,
and a long winter stares the unfortunate
Inthefucc. So the temporary resting place
for the unclaimed dead receives ninny ot
such at the Christmas season. Accidental
deaths, especially drowning, are far more
common lu summer. The fruitful cause
is liquor. The inebriate goes to the pier,
falls asleep on Its edge, rails off, and the
river overwhelms him beforo ho oan regain
his senses.
The morgue Itself Is a rectangular
structure built over the water in the fashion of n bathhouse. It Is at the east end
of Twenty-sixth street, and behind tt are'
the extensive buildings of the Bellevue
Hospital. All the unclaimed dead of the
city *:o to this morgue, whether they die
in the hospitals, upon the streets, iu the
parks or in one of the two rivers that run
down on the east and west. About 7,000
is the number per year, and a good proportion of them are entered in the list of
"drowned." A human being may come
to his death by drowning ln more ways
than one, as the First Grave Digger ln
"Hamlet" takes home pains to explain,
and of those who come to the morgue tt
is hard to say whether they sought death
or were betrayed to it by accident or a
crime. They are found by tho harbor
police or by some boatman; and Iii a considerable proportion cf cases tliatist-.il
thnt is ever known. The mystery which
surrounds these deaths becomes doubly
interesting when one reflects that tbe two
rivers do not always render a just account.
The ocean takes takes many a body
and leaves no room. The number
ot deaths from drowning that are
never explained, certainly that remain
absolutely unknown, must be a startling
sum.
New York has no particular "Jumping
off place," or spots to whtch suicides regularly go. Each ot the piers comes in for
Its share; tbe Battery has Its patronage,
and the lakes of Central Park receive a

THE INJUNCTION GRANTED.
The Enemies or Progress and Enterprise rsuke another Atlenpt to He-
lard the Clly'a Prosperity.
The application of Augustus William
Lumlbom and John Edward Lord, for
an injunction to restrain the mayor
and council of New Weitminster from
parting with the proceeds of the sale of
the workshops and forry bv-lawB debentures to tho trust recently appointed,
has boon granted by Mr. Justice
Grease. The injunction further restrains the councilfrom dealing with
tho debentures in any other manner
than that prescribed in the by-laws,
and the trust is restrained from receiving or dealint? with the proceeds of
tho sale of tho debentures. Tho particulars entered by the plaintiffs nro:
To quash tho by-law known as tlio
Workshops Bonus by-law, 1888, passed
by tho corporation of the city of New
Westminster, and for an injunction to
restrain tbe mayor and corporation of
tlio city of New Westminstor from in
any manner dealing with tbe debentures
mentioned in the Workshops Bonus by*
law, 1888, and the Ferry Service by-law,
ISSS, and to restrain the defendants
other than the Baid corporation from receiving from tho Bald corporation the
sum of $150,000, or any other sum the
proceeds of the salo of the said debentures, and from in any manner dealing
with any of thesaid moneys, should they
have already received any, and to pre*
vent the said corporation from in any
manner dealing with the debentures
mentioned in the said Workshops Bonus by-law, 1888, until tho validity of
the said by-law shall havo boon determined,
Messrs. Lundbom and Lord, in applying for the injunction, include as applicants "All other ratepayers in tho
corporation of the city of New Westminster." Apart from tho applicants,
and possibly a couple of dozen other
persons, there is scarcely a ratepayer
in the city who is against tbe disposition of tho §150,000 by the trust in
the manner agreed upon between the
corporation and tho company. Were
the matter to go beforo the peoplo tomorrow to vote on it would be proved
again that 00 per cent of the ratepayers are satisfied with tho arrangements
made and agreed on. It is worthy of
note that those who have been the
most active in bringing the injunction
about have been ln the post, and still
are, adverse to anything in the way of
the city's advancement, and, in fact,
have endeavored to balk all progress
whenever occasion offered.
The Southern Railway directors are
not at all dismayed by the injunction.
They hold the charter of the road, and
before the city can get it baok it will
have to make good the liabilities incurred by the company. For the welfare of tho city it ta to be hoped the
company may not bo forced to adopt
measures which will bo fatal to Westminster.
Victims of the Kock Slide.
Fuller particulars have come to
hand concerning the great rock slide,
reported in Tub Columbian yestordsy,
which occurred at a point on tho C.P.
It. known as sailor Bar Bluff, about
eight miles cast of Yolo, whereby a
large portion of a bridge was demolished and two men killed and a third injured. The two men killed were Peter
McPhorsno, a bridge carpenter, and
Coombs Bodoin, a telegraph line
builder. McPherson was a native
of Now Brunswick, and Bedoin hailed
from the province of Quebec; both
men have been in the province about
threo yean. The injured man, who
is probably fatally hurt, is Wm. Geis-
lor, well-known ai the keeper of the
Emory Hotel in the days of the On-
denlonk contract, and for some time
afterwards. Business becoming dull-
he varied hii occupation by taking to
his old trade of bridge carpenter, and
thuB met with tho terrible accident
described. Mrs. Geisler will have the
sympathy of old friends of her husband
in her aad affiction.

About four yeara ago a Gorman Jew,
named J. Shourman, camo to Westminster and opened n second hand
store and pawnshop on Front Street,
Although dealers in -'OldClo" are not
usually addicted to trading in cranberries, Sheurman vent into the cran
berry business extensively and made
many large shipments to the Sound
and to San Francisco. Peoplo wondered
that tho man confiuod his exports to
cranberries but no particular notice of
this idiosyncrasy was taken, though the
citizonB of Westminster wore then
more diligent in attending to othor
people's affairs than thoy aro now. A
fow, however, of the must shrewd suspected that tho cranberries woro only
a blind, and further enquiry into the
niatter proved that Mr. Sheurman was
shipping large quantities of opium to
the south and reaping therefrom a
handsome profit. It wna also learned
that he worked in collusion with tho
American customs officers who recoived
a certain share in the profits. So well
did Sheurman flourish in tho opium
smuggling business that ho was able to
purchase property in Portland to the
value, it iB said, of $10,000. After a
year's stay in Westminster he moved
to the Sound where it is believed he
acted as agent for a baud of sinugclers
until tho recent war against tlio opium
men by tho American customs department mado the business too dangerous
to remain in any longer. Successful
smuggling is a paying business and no
one knew it better than Sheurman, so
he set about to find another branch of
his adopted profession which would
offer profits without incurring danger.
New Westminster he remembered with
pleasure, and the quiet old place to
him seemed to afford the opportunities
for a perfect smuggler's paradise.
Sheurmau returned here some fire
months ago, but only to find that the
Royal City was a different place than
of old, and instead of a sleepy little
burgh with slow going inhabitants
he was amazed to find a bustling little
city filled with shrewd and enterprising
business men. The conditions having
altered to bo great an extent he found
it necessary to proceed more cautiously, and it was not until about four
weeks ago that ho had arranged connections with certain people here to
receivo his smuggled goods. The plan
was to ship the goods from Seattle to
Blnino and from thenco they would be
brought to Westminster either by road
or water. In tho meantime, while negotiations wero in progress, Sheurman
rented tho ground floor of tho Orange
Hall and pretended to do a little business in buying and selling old goods.
But tho blind was very apparent and
did nut mislead everybody, ns he has
since found to his cost. Mr, J. S.
Cluto, collector of customs, knowing
the man of old, had certain suspicion!
that his residence in Westminster was
not for tlio purposo of legitimate trade,
and accordingly gave his officers' tit-
BtructionB to koep an eye on him.
yesterday certain information was
received concerning Showman's first
importation of smuggled goods and a
portion of the consignment was located iu a hotel on Columbia Street. Arrangements were immediately completed to search tlio house, and about
midnight Mr. Clute, along with a well
known officer, went to tho houso and
made a valuable seizure of cigarettes
and playing cards. To Bave himself,
tho receiver of tho goods turned
Queens evidence.
Sherman got wind that hia scheme
had been discovered and mode arrangements to fly, but the authorities, who
learned hu intentions, decided be
should stay. Shortly before 3 o'clock
Constable Dominy stepped into the
house and quietly arrested Sheurman,
who with his wife was dreued and
waiting for the carriage which was to
land them safely at the southern end
of the Semiahmoo trail. Mrs. Sheurman made a terrible row when her
husband was put under arrest and pretended not to understand the cause,
but when she saw her tears were of no
avail she quickly dried them and talked business. She offered 91,000 bail
to release Sheurman, bnt it was not
accepted and he was convoyed to the
lookup where ho spent the remainder
of the night. At the police court this
morning, Mr. Bole, Q. C, for the
crown, asked a remand of 8 days.
Cant. Pittendrigh granted tho remand
and fixed tho prisoner's bail at $5,000.
The manner in which the clues were
obtained and tho akih'ul shadowing of
tho smuggler until arrested cannot be
published at present as thero is more
work of tho same kind to be done,
but suffice it to say tho whole was very
cleverly managed and reflects high
credit on the officers who have been
working on the case.

CORRESPONDENCE.
t'emmerclal Colleges Wanted.
Editor Columbian.—While tho government is doing so much for tho education of the youth of British Columbia;
while tbe schoolmaster Is sent so widely
abroad over this "sea of mountains" of
ours, yot it must be confessed that there
Is a great want in our scholastic instruction. We see very many of our young
men leave school wholly unfit to acquit
themselves in an efficient manner, even
in a .lumber yard, not to mention a
counting houso. There is not enough
practical education imparted. We do
not wish to find fault with our school
system by any means, but the fact remains that the lock of practical knowledge that some of our young men display, after leaving school is enough to
excito tho pity of thier fellow mortals.
For our part we rather prefer to be
envied than pitied. We think that the
want can be supplied by the establishment of a few business schools in our
provinco, where, instead of Latin quality, Greek euphony, conic sections, etc.,
our young men and women shall be
taught to transact buslnoss and thereby
fitted for the ordinary affairs of life.
Wc trust that the proper persons shall
shortly be found to start suoh an institution in our oity. They would have
our sympathy and support.    Parent.
Alderman DeBeek's Statement.
Editor Colombian.—Dr. Hall's communication in Wednesday's Colombian,
in regard to the Board of Health's
dealings with the cases of diphtheria at
the Cleveland Hotel, is not a fair or
true statement. The circumstances are
substantially these: Dr. mot mo on the
morning of the 2gth inst., and mado a
statement In reference to the cases of
diphtheria. I asked him to come with
me to Alderman Herring's. We took
the Mayor with us, I uked him to
repeat to the mayor and Aid. Herring,
what he told me on the street. He said,
"Mr. White is not able to pay me for my
services to his children," and he would
not work any longer for glory, and would
not attend them any longer unless we
would agree to pay him. The mayor
suggested tbat we go to the health officer, and there make the best arrangements we could, u we would have to
employ a physician to look after the
children if Dr. Hall would not. Aid.
Honing, Dr. Hall and myself went to
Dr. Smith's office. I uked Dr. Hall if
ho would take charge of the patients and
what would bo his fee. He said he
thought he ought to be paid u much
u Dr. Robertson, who wu quarantined
with a small-pox patient at Vanoouver
lut fall. I asked him how muoh that
was and he said he thought $50 per
day; Dr* Smith thought $10; Aid. Herring Baid he would find out, I uked
him to do so. He telephoned to the oity
clerk at Vancouver, and reported to us
that Dr. Robertson had been paid 120
ier day. I again uked Dr. Hall what
.ic would attend the patients for per day;
he said he would net do It for less than
.__. It being noon we left for lunch,
On my return, I uked Dr. Smith if he
would take charge of the patients, and at
what rate. He replied that he would
take the cases for 910 per day, I conferred with Aid. Herring and we engaged
Dr. Smith. I went with Dr. Smith to
the Cleveland Hotel, and, on the way,
we met Dr. Hall, who stated that the
children were dying, and showed us a
letter signed by Mr. White, requesting
him to attend his children, I went to
the hotel and told Mr. White that we
had engaged Dr. Smith to attend his
children, u we could not pay Dr. Hall
what he demanded, viz; $25 per day, and
I thought Dr. Smith quite u good a
physician. He said he oould not pay a
doctor and would take Dr, Smith. I told
him we did not object to his having Dr,
Hall, but we eoula not pay him. 1 then
gave Dr. Smith charge, and told tho
guards not to lot anyone in or ont,
unless by his (Dr. Smith's) permission,
or an order from the board of health.

cramp. It was raining hard, and
he disliked to take a drive of two
miles, io he directed the child to be
held up to the telephone and kept
there until it coughed. He diagnosed the case, prescribed for the child,
and turned in for an undisturbed
sleep for the remainder of the
night. The next morning he
called around and found tbe
patient doing nicely—under the
