SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANT.
Belief mode's of the moon, on the
scule of ninety miles to the inch, are
being made in London by Mr. H.
F. Brion.
Assuming tho average depth of
the Atlantic and Pacific oceans to
bo 2J miles, Prof. George McGowan
calculates that there is 312,850,000
tons of salt in tho water under each
square mile of surface.
In nn examination of the stomachs
of over 500 English sparrows according to Pro£ Eiley, only 82 wore
found to contain any insect re-
mains at all, while the stomach of a
single truly insectivorous bird had
250 web worms., This bird would
<: have given mare aid toan-orobardist
than nil army of the useless sparrows.
Sea. Tempebatop.es.—In a recent
paper before the London Society of
Telegraph Engineers, Mr. W. Lane
Carpenter mentioned that the temperature of the Mediterranean was
found to be 54 ° P. at a depth of
2000 fathoms, while in the Atlantic
at no great distance, 36 ° was met
with at the same depth. Other
instances of thermal differences
between partially land-locked seas
and the ocean were given, among
them tho Red Sea, in which tho
mininum temperature is 71°. In
the Sulu Sea the lowest temperature
was found to be 50 ° .5 at 2550
fathoms, while the temperature was
31s to 33 ° at the same depth in
the Indian Ocean.
Flames pbom Water.—It seems
rather paradoxical to speak of water
as an excitant of combustion, yet
Mr. Brereton Baker showed the
London Chemical Society in 1882
that carbon burns less freely in
dried than in moist oxygen. Continuing his researches, the same
investigator has found that selenium, tellurium, arsenic and antimony burn with equal readiness in
dry and moist oxygen; but that the
combustion of carbon, sulphur,
boron, and both tbe red and yellow
modifications of phosphorus, is
greatly modified by the amount of
moisture present. Some oxidation
took place in all cases, but its extent
varied with the degree of dryness of
the substances, and no flame appear*
mi whon most of the moisture bad
been excluded. Yellow phosphorus
was obtained of such purity that it
did not eveu glow in dried oxygen,
though the addition of water caused
rapid combustion, '
«v VrBhiiiblw-P-^bB»-of '(n«-.most
striking conceptions of modern
physics is that matter is eternally
trembling with vibrations, to the
variations of whioh are due our
sensations. Vibratory law, said
Mr. 0. 0. '■ Haskins in a recent
thoughtful paper, lies at the very
bottom of all vegetable and animal
life. To it we are indebted for all
that is beautiful in art ahd in
nature. It gives us all our magnetic and electrical action. It
actuates our telegraphs and our
telephones, the fire alarm and the
electric light. Our batteries would
be powerless without it Nay,
more; withont these minute movements, which prevade the entire
universe, there would be neither
heat, nor light, nor color. The
stars would ceaso to shine, and the
sun would be a blank, invisible.
The earth would refuse to move; all
sound would cease, darkness, and
death, and chaos would instantly
succeed to tho present beautiful
creation.

An Electmc Coin-Catchkh.—
Automatic weighing and power-
testing machines, and dispensers of
chocolate cakes, vials of perfumery,
und other wares, have become a
familiar sight la many lands during
the past few years. A new development of the idea haa been introduced
by a French society, and has already
found favor in the waiting rooms,
gardens and theatres of Paris, It
is called the "Electric Magic Lantern," and serves something of the
purpose of an illustrated daily paper.
It is in the form of a highly ornamental box or pillar seven feet tall,
bearing a oonspicious invitation to
"Givo ten centimes and soo." The
person accepting the invitation
looks through a five-inch lens in
the front of tho apparatus, drops
Ins coin in tho slot, and sees . pass
upward a series pf seven drawings
illustrative of current events, each
picture pausing for a few seconds
to give time for a good View of it.
A Swan electric lamp illuminates
the pictures, and the entire mechau*
ism is operated by electricity. The
drawings are changed daily, tho
list of representations being neatly
placarded on tho outside.
The Chicago Tribune discourses
thus facetiously on the ever fertile
subject of annexation: . Before
Miss Canada turns up her little blue,
cold nose at the idea of Accepting
Uncle Sam as a suitor let her remember that he is as young and
good looking a fellow as will ever
be likely to present Himself, and
that she herself is no ohioken.
Moreover, her farm jines his'n.
Jos. Beaiidin, M.D., Hull, P.Q., writes:
Dr. Thomas' Eeleotric Oil commands a
large and increasing sole which it richly
merits, I have always found it exceedingly helpful; I use It In all cases of rheumatism, as well as fractures and dislocations.
I mode use of it myself to calm the pains
of a broken leg with dislocation of the
foot, and in two days I wai entirely relieved of pain."
OEHMAN.S SOUNDLY THUAHUK1).
San Fbanoisco, Jan. 19f—The str.
Alemadafrom Sydney this morning
brings details of a battle iu Samoa on
Dec.   18th,  in  which the Germans
suffered a severe loss.   Tho captain of
the German corvette   Oka  itated  to
the captains of the British and American warships in Asia his intention  of
goto* to Saluafata for tbe purpose of
terminating in a peaceful manner  the
war between King Matoafa and Tarn*
asese, tbe pretender.   Eighty soldiers
from the Olga, accompanied by a num*
ber of Tamaseie's men,  were landed
and marched inland to meet Mataafa.
Mataafa retired further inland at their
approach.   The Germans followed up
aud fired into Mataafa's forces, killing
a young son of a chief.   The chief became excited and was only prevented
by his own people from returning the
fire, but while strugo-ling against their
efforts was shot dead himself.    The
Mataafa men could not stand this, and
by common impulse shot it  their assailants.   Their first volley killed six
Germans and wounded others.     The
Germans then retreated and 60 of them
were killed and wounded.    Mataafa
lost about 10 killed and 30 wounded.
The Olga then threw shells into the
spot where Mataafa was supposed to
be and several were killed.   Next day
Mataafa's late residence was burned
by the Germans,   The commander of
the U. S.  steamer Nipsic protested
against these measures, but the protest was unheeded.   On Thursday tho
Olga bombarded the town of Mataafa*
gutele, after whioh men were landed
and burned it.   No notice was taken
of protests of European and American
residents against  the  destruction  of
their property.   A   meeting of the
three  consuls    was    finally     held,
but     it    came     to     an     abrupt
termination.   The German consul proposed that Mataafa should bo disarmed
and that ho should surrender liim-ulf
on board one of the German warships.
His life was promised  to  bo  spared,.
but no guarantee would be  given   for
his liberation.   The  proposition   was
not accepted by the other c<insula. Tho
Germans thereupon made no secret <.f
their intention  to crush  Mataafa   if
they 'cotHd:     At  latest advices the
British and American   warships  have
made ready for action   and  are  pre*
pared to land  men   to  protect  their
respective countrymen.   Two natives
who were deported to Germany  with
the deposed kini*, Malietoa, havo  returned to Samoa and  state  that  the
king was kept in prison during the
Whole   of   his stay    in    Germany.
Matteloo'fl followers have obtained a
good supply of ammunition, about
25,000 rounds; and of this 1,000 rounds
was recently sold to them by au American trader.   The  Tamasese troops
are reported to have only a small supply of cartridges, but a large number
of shot guns, and a quantity of powder
has been sent to them by  a German
firm.   The followers of Tamasese occupy a very strong position and they
have lines of outer and inner forts and
are thus strongly entrenched.    The
men under Tamaseie's command are
said to have undermined,  for which
they were stationed, and that it is their
intention to blow the fort up in event
of its being taken by the rival party.
The United Statei war ship Adams,
after a prolonged stay at Apa, left on
the 7th of Deo. for San Francisco. She
wai replased by tho Nipsic.
THE  TARIFF BILL,
Washinoton, Jan. 19.—The members of the senate finance committee,
bavinr* in charge the tariff bill, admit
frankly they are not ot ull sure the bill
will pais the senate when the date for
the vote ia reached on Tuesday next.
The fact that Senator Quay fought
againit the lugar bounty proposition,
coupled with frequent statements that
the Pennsylvania senators prefer the
preient tariff to tho adjustment pro*
posed by this bill, makes them very uneasy as to the result of the vote.
A NOTED SHAIU'Ell.
Pmscuna, Jan. 19. — Detective
Pinkerton, who arrested a few days
ago in Windsor, Ont., a famous bunco
etcurer named Aldrich for fleecing an

ville, Tenn., that Mrs. J. F. Atchison,

known the indignant citizens hanged
the trio to a tree.

Woods fur instructions touching letters
written with evident intent to corrupt

Immense quantities were destroyed.
The loss far exceeds that of the looting of the summer palace by the English thirty yoars ago. Tho calamity

the wedding festivities of the emperor.

MB. PHEirs' FAREWELL BANQUET.
London, Jan. 18.—Sir Charles Tupper will attend next Thursday the farewell banquet to Mr. Phelps,the American minister at the mansion house. It
is understood that the foreign office
here entirely shares Sir Charles Tapper's hopeful view of the fisheries
question, and the belief ia generally
entertained in official circles of seeing
a ready acceptance of the treaty of 1888
among the foremost statesmen of both
parties in the United States aa •
reasonable and honorable settlement,
and that the time is not far distant
when similar principles will be accepted
as the basis of a complete agreement
Favorable comment hu uso been
elicited by Sir Charles Tapper's in*
direct reference to annexation, when
he said that Canada wu in no way
jealous of the United States, but on
the contrary, admires and wishes them
well, knowing that the day is not far
distant when Canada herself will pro-
sent a similar measure of progress snd
prosperity.
A COMPLETE SURPRISE.
London, Jan. 18.—The result of
the eleotion for members of the new
London county council, whioh took
placo yostorday, is a complete aurprise
to everybody. Unusually small interest was taken in the progress of the
election, but the turn which the contest took has aroused a general discussion. It is believed that the Radicals and Liberals will have a majority
of 28 out of the total of 118 memben of
the council and the probability that
Earl Rosebery will bo elected chairman is very strong. PThe greatest surprise which has resulted from the
election is tho fact that noarly every
one of the memben of the present
board of works who sought eleotion to
the new council wu defeated, and this
circumstance is claimed by the Radicals to show conclusively that public
opinion iu London ia changing and
SDints to the ultimate triumph of
omooracy.

HOW TO VOTE.
The largo number of spoiled votes
at every election is largely due to
haste in marking the ballot or to
an incorrect idea of whore the mark
ahould be placed. In order to give
voters generally tho exact method
required we print the form of ballot
paper which will bo used on Monday, and place a cross opposite tho
names of nine candidates. The
cross must be distinctly made and
should be wholly within tho lines,
opposite the candidates' names for
whom the vote is intended. Any
cross on the lines spoils the whole
ballot, and on this point voters
ahould observe the greatest care. It
will be noticed that the crosses on
tho annexed ballot form are placed in
front of tho names of the candidates
who represent ttie popular ticket, and
no voter will be astray who marks
the list as below given. Only nine
candidates oan be voted for, if more
the ballot is spoiled.
prevents us citing from that document to day, hut we shall do so in
our special Monday morning edition.

So much bewildering mathematical jugglery has been perpetrated in
anonymous  fly-sheets with respect
to the Southern Railway debentures,
interest, and sinking  fund—more
for the purpose, one would imagine,
of confusing the judgment and confounding the sense than for anything
else—that a plain, brief and sensible statement of the ease will not
be out of the way at this time, as
some unwary elector may have got
himself tied up into a double   knot
trying to unravel the interminable
skein of misstatement and exaggeration.   Let us, then, examine  the
matter briefly and fairly:   Two bylaws have been passed, providing for
the   borrowing  of  a total sum of
$100,000  for  fifty years, at 6 per
cent.   A total annual amount,  for
interest and sinking fund, of $12,-
000 is required, which will be raised
by levying a speoial annual rate of
14 mills—a little loss than l.V cents
—on the dollar, on §862,511—the
value of the ratable property of the
oity according to the last revised assessment.   Every ratepayer knows,
or can asccrtnin, what hi. property
ia assessed at, and, by multiplying
the amount of his assessment by 14
mills, the product will be the exact
amount addod to bis yearly taxes.
For  instance,   if a ratepayer's assessment on the roll  is $1,000, he
will bo required to pay   an  annual
tax for Southern Railway purposes,
in addition to his ordinary taxation
of  $14.    The  Southern  Railway
will, of course, enhance every ratepayer's  property, immediately, to
the extent, at least, of the amount
paid during the next ten  yeara  in
railway taxation; but (which is also
important) tho 14   mills  aforesaid
will continue to be levied each year
on the value of property when the
by-laws were passed, and not on ita
enhanced value, as this is increased
by the railway, and will continue to
inoreaae  indefinitely for the next
fifty yeara.   Moreover, of the $12,-
000 to be railed by taxation, $9,000
only is required to meet the interest
on the debentures; tbe remaining
$3,000 it lor a linking fund,  which
will accumulate in the oity treasury,
fuidmayWi^n^eBilrfbjrthe city,
thai bringing in cumulative interest,

ipecial  rate tor that year may be
napended.   Thil '» only common
•enw  anyway, but  tha new oity
charter providei ipecially for thu
and othor matter*.   Lack of apace
Referring to our criticism of tho
action of the city council  here,   in
deciding not to publish tho auditor's
statement  in  the newspapers, as
heretofore, but  in pamphlet  form
(a decision which we can now commend the council for revoking), our
cotemporary of the. Voncouver ll*or*i
makes   the   following   comments,
which we make no apology  for  reproducing in full, as they present
the  case of the British Oolumbia
press, with respect tothe publio, aud
as compared with  the  press elsewhere, in a very fair and just light.
Our  cotemporary   says:    "Unfortunately the civic authorities do not
possess a monopoly of the starvation
tactics   towards   the  local    press.
What right has any ono to  ask  a
newspaper  to  make  a  cut in its
regular rates 1   Possibly in no other
community   does this habit prevail
to a greatir extent than it does in
Vancouver.   A  glance  at the advertising columns of the local press
would lead outsiders to suppose that
publishers and proprietors here had
veritable bonanzas in their journals.
No greater mistake could  possibly
be entertained.   Thoso who do extend   their  patronage  do  so in a
manner  not at  all becoming the
dignity of the city and the  energy
and  enterprise of its press, which
has and is doing so much to build up
and  make known abroad the great
onward strides Vancouver  has  already   made  and the prospects in
store  for  its  future  growth and
prosperity.   In nine cases out of ten
some eastern backwoods town newspaper rates are quoted and the question asked why equal rates, should
not   be  charged here.   The fact is
overlooked that whereas the wages
paid   in   the east range from $8 to
$10 and   812   per week, here the
average runs from $18 to $21 and
as high as $25.   Paper in the  east
costing   5c.   per  lb. here costs 7c.
Rent  and  other expenses are one
hundred per cent, higher here  than
in the east.    But the most  important item of ail is the tdegrsph   account.    Omitting the thrw   leading
dailies of Toronto—the Gh}..  Hail
and Empire—we jive __e__ m the
order of their seniontT—Ate ?>r._* of
British Columbia p_?t sm* far its
telegraphic terxdez thi-:1! __i Ute Ontario press combine,.!.'   Tlm province
has   a   population in ex«*s of two
million, densely settled and   within
eusv reach of railways.    The   population   of   British Columbia at tbe
outside will not greatly exceed sixty
thousand, and very remotely settled,
at "magnificent distances" us it were
from each other.   The field here, it
avill thus be seen, is  circumscribed.
Yet its press is the most enterprising
on the continent, or fcr that matter
in tho world, for nowhere  else  can
such excellent journals be   found as
those of which British Columbia can
boast.    With   these  faota  before
them, we hope that never again will
the eastern press be held up to this
journal as paragons whereby' to  regulate ita charges and spirit of enterprise.   Is the lawyer asked to
accept fifty per cont. of his account
when presented)   Or the  medical
adviser to reduce his bill by seventy-
five  per cent!   When the grocer
states his price, is he asked to take
forty cents for that which he cannot
honestly sell for less than one dollar!
Tho  practice  could be lengthened
out to any extent as illustrating the
starvation tactics pursued  towards
the press,   For this state of  affairs
publishers, however, are themselves
greatly to blame.   Once a scale of
charges—and that a fair one—has
been adopted there  should  be  no
deviation therefrom,   Such in future shall be the World's polioy. At
first  it may appear unreasonable.
Nevertheless, if the high  standard
which we have set out for ourselves
is to be maintained, every inch  of
space whioh we have for sale to the
public must produce its full  value,
Weare confident our confreres  of
the press throughout  the  provinco
will re-echo these views and sentiments."   It would be difficult to add
anything to the World's statement
of the case on behalf of the press of
the province, so far as our experience goes, that would add to  the
forcible truthfulness of  our  cotem-
porary's arraignment, and wo  shall
not attempt it here.

As regards railway matters, I am

ELECTION CARD
To tke Municipal Electors of New Westminister City :
Lames and Gentlemen,—
At tho request of a number of friends I
hnve consented to place my name In
nomination for the position of nlderman
nt tho coming election, fully realizing the
Importance and duties of the office. If
elected I will eudoavor tn the beBt of my
ability, to place our city in the front mnk
of the cities of B. C. The following Important questions will have my careful
attention:
1. "Railway.—1 will use every legitimate
menus ln my power to bring to a successful termination the building aud com-
{iletlonof theSouthem Railroad,and will
rent liberally any projected railway
which may wish to run Into our city,
always carefully guarding the best interests of the city. And it if, my opinion
it we are true to ourselves and bury any
little differences that may exist and wore
shoulder to shoulder, we can mnke Kew
Westminster the greatest railway center
and most Important city between Seattle
and Alaska.
2. Water Supply.—I am In favor of the
city owning Its own watef works, for there
Ib a very large revenue to bo derived from
this source, It properly conducted, and, If
elected, I will at once take up this question
nnd deal with it on business principles,
Water rate debentures when issued, bear
tholr own value nnd will not be one dollar's tax on the ratepayers.
& Sew eiiag e.—Th Is Is one of the most
Important questions thnt tho new counoil
will have to grapple with, nml, un there Is
bound lobe a large emfgrntldii here this
.vinr.it behooves us to bo iil-vo midget
our city well advanced so as to keep away
those tit-end diseases which we so mercifully escaped last yenr. And I have no
don hi tt .vim • led the right men a scheme
can bo got np whereby tho city can be
piPIioily sewered,und the revenue derived
f mm i ho snle of water he made to pay tho
Interc-il and sinking fund for both water
work*; Hint sewerage.
■I. stkkkts— Something must bo dono
utnnceto open up all streets In the city
so as to give workingmen and mechanics
n clnince to get to their lots nnd buildings,
nn.l, if ('let-led I will give this subject my
careful nttentlon and hearty support.
ft. City Hall.—If nny proposition Is
brought forward for the erection of a suitable cily hall, nnd If the finances of the
city will allow It, I will givo It my warmest support,
6. Street LiGn.TiNo.-I will favor the
o-ucndlngnnd Improving of our system of
street lighting, for there is no doubt It will
stand considerable Improvement.
7. I'akk.-Iii order to make the coming
agrlmiUural show a success we must put*
portion of the city park ina fit condition
with suitable buildings, etc. If elected I
will do my best to make the grounds a
credit to the roynl city, I am also ln favor
of removing the unsightly stumps on
Albert Crescent and planting n few shndo
trees to replace the -dumps. Nature hns
done much for our city and it only wants
touching up a little to make It perfect.
8. Publio Library,—There is no doubt
a new building Is wanted to replace tbe
delepldatcd one now occupying a valuable lot, and there Is no doubt in my mind,
but that a suitable one could be erected
with stores underneath and library above*
and the rents from said stores would more
than pay for Interest and sinking fund,
and leave a balance for keeping tho library In proper condition.
9. Manufacturers.—I will oncourage
any manufacturers thnt contemplate starting business ln this city, treating them
In a liberal manner, and will use every
effort to show them the advantage of doing
business here. It Is well known that manufactures aro the backbone of any eity.
10. Communications.—I will urge upon
our ror *••-«■—  ••—  — ■*--

boat bi      „..__.. _..._
also between here aad Ladners Landing.
We must also get better connections with
the surrounding district.
11. Letter Boxeb.-I will also endeavor
to have the postal authorities supply and
put In plaoe letter boxei In the suburbs
of the eity.
12.1 wilt also urge on our eity member
the necessity of having the local govern*
ment place a sum of money ln this year's
estimates to put the North Arm road In a
fit condition for travel.
13. Street Naming and Nukberino,—
If elected I will urge npon my colleagues the necessity of havfngoiirstrcets
properly named and buildings numbered,
as Ib always done ln well-regulated cities.
In fact, any project that may be brought
up for advancing the interests of the city
will have myt arcn.il attention and hearty
support.

way, with .1 sugar-cured ham in its mouth.
We poked it pretty lively about the licod
with tho Mazing torches, as it passed nud
made it d i-op the bam; but felt mightily re-
UevaWatleast I did—to see It scuttle like
a thief out of the aback. The itinniest, thing
to mo about both these burglarious var*nitit
was that neither of 'em showed a tooth, or
seemed to lose temper, as we broke in on
'em. From what we could see of 'em they
impressed us as good-natured animals, who
regarded the situation of affairs asany thing
but tragical. Seattle bad had similar experiences of the friendly advances of grizzlies before, especially In the old timer*, before the '60s, but I never had, and, had 1
been alono, I should certainly bsve taken to
my Winchester and tried to drive 'em off.
But it was very evident by this time that
Seattle knew what he Wis tatting about,
and the hears in this gulch were visiting us
ln a spirit of prying curiosity, if not positive friendliness, and were also, most likely, attracted by the aroma of frizzling bacon.
Wo were in the baok room looking over
the mischief tbe last bear had wrought
among our provisions, when tho same mil-,
mul, as far as we could Judge, thrust his
head inquiringly Into the .front door. Seattle swore a good-natured oath about this re*
markablo exhibition of cheek, and hurled
a tin dough-pan at him. The noise of tho
pan Beared him away, but he stopped und
turned round bofore he had gone many
steps, and seamed half inclined to come
baok. The taste of ham hung around his
ohops, and but for his dread of the torches 1
believe he'd have come baok and disputed its
possession with us anyhow, for if there is
0110 thing a bear likes better than any thing
else it's a nice sugar-cured ham. A bear
will stow away more ham than a Sioux,
which is saying a, food deal more for the
bear tb*f yon; i^gHstoposi.
As wo sat by tbe fire and stowed aW-V
fiap-jneks and Bacon and coffee-*one of the
biggest of the grizzlies sat on bis haunches
just beyond the circle of the glow, surveying us with a wistful leer and licking his
chops as though begrudging us every mouthful we took.  I bate any body, man, Injun

kind and the pranks of the bad boy,
tho pitiable situations in which the
Grocery man is continually finding
himself, and the old man's trouble
with his son keeps the audience in continual roars. J. J. Wilson in the
rolo of the "bad boy" is inimitable,

There was a large and respectable
assemblage of oitizens, including a
number of tho resident clergymen,
at the Oddfellows' Hall laat evening,
it boing the occasion of the celebration
of the establishment of a branch of
tho Young Men's Christian Association
in this city, Mr. 0. E. 0. Brown, the
new president, occupied the chair.
After prayers by Rev. Thoa Scouler, Mr. Austin the retiring president
and Mr. Jack, tho hon. sec, read
brief reports. Short addresses were
eiven by the Ven. Archdeacon Woods,
Rev. Thos. Scouler, Rev. Mr. Baldwin,
Rev. Mr. White and others. A quartette "Drifting with the Tide" by Mrs.
Flanders, Miss Williams, Mr. H. L.
DeBeck and H. M. Cunningham, in
which the former took the leading part,
was very well rendered. Mrs. Flanders then entertained the audience
with a comic song, "I Woudn't Would
you?" and, being recalled, gave "Come
book to Erin Mavourneen," both of
whioh received enthusiastic applause.
Mr. H. Wilson followed with the grand
old song "Rooked in the Cradle of the
Deep," and on being recalled sung
"Flee as a Bird to the Mountain."
Both selections were given in good
voice and style. Coffee and cake
were then served. This portion of the
programme was provided by Mrs Hill,
Mrs. Dickinson, Mrs. Major, Mrs. Turner, Mrs. Scouler and Mrs. McNab,
which ladies are always indefatigable

CORRESPONDENCE.
'.fnnis to Know How It Is.
Editor Columbian,—Kindly oblige by
answering tlio following for inc. You
will remember that our lato City Clerk
was ignominously dismissed from his
position for discussing as a private citizen, Southern Railway mutters. Despite
this precedent, our present City Clerk
finds time and opportunity to indite a
lengthy letter on the same subject whioh
you published in Thursday's issue, and
which has since appeared In pamphlet
form. If the cx*city clerk was guilty of
wrongdoing, is not the present occupant
of tho oflice equally guilty ? If not,
wherein does his innocence Uo 1 Does
being on "tho other Bide", justify his
action, and will it meet with tlio supremo
npproval ot tho "powers that bu", irrespective of their former decision.
A VOTEfl.
(We take much pleasure in answering
the above. In the first place tho Into
city clerk was dismissed on a charge of
using improper language to the'mayor,
not for "discussing as a privato citizen
Southern Railway mattora." In the
second place Mr. Robson is secretary of
the Bond of Trade, and as such hod a
Eerfect right, when instructed by the
oard, to reply to the charges preferred
against that body, providing always that
in so doing he did not sacrifice the city's
interests. Tho right of tho city clerk to
diacuss public affairs, as a private citizen,
has never been questioned, nor is it
likely to be, bo long as ho makes no improper use of his position as a servant of
the corporation.—-Ed.]
Mr. Lnndboni's Utter.
Editor Columbian.—In the Mainland
Guardian ot tho 16th Inst, there appears
a letter over the signature of A. M. Lund*
bom, which has plainly been prepared
with the object of influencing the present
municipal election In thb city, and In
which the N. W. board of trade are taken
to task for passing a certain resolution,
which is quoted in part, regarding tho
action of Mr. Lundbom and others in opposition to tho N. W. Southern Railway.
Mr. Lundbom says that the idea of tho
citizens being called on to ratify the con*
tract "is absurd" and that the vote of a
bonus of $150,000 to the railway "is another wild statement."
Now, I believe that tho ratepayers of
this city kuew, when they voted the
bonus, that it was for a railway ferry
and workshops, hut I believe they were
also aware that the forry and workshops
were part and parcel of it too; as without the forry the railway could not enter
our city uutil the bridge is built, and the
workshops being here will bring as permanent residents to the city a large number of skilled mechanics and laborers,
whose earnings wilt bo spent in the city
for tho support of themselves and families.
Mr. Lundbom fears lest tho electors
"might possibly be misled by the board
of trade's statements." I have more respect for the intelligence of the electors
of this city than to suppose that they are
likely to be misled by the statement of
anyone, even by Mr. Lundbom's pam>
phlct and I am suro that they appreciate
at their proper value the services of tho
board of trado to this city and also thoae
of Mr. Liuulbom ct al in the .same behalf. ■■:   ',■
Mr, Lundbom says that "aa soon as
"tho N. W. Southern Railway Co. bad
" a few trees slashed down they have
" persistently attempted to get tne de*
" Dentures or the proceeds therefrom."
This statement is untrue, and Mr, L.
knows it to be so. It has been shown at
a publio meeting that a large amount of
money had been expended by the con*
tractors, that the right of way was all
cleared, and, in laot, no time has been
lost since the contract was made In carrying on the work until the approach of
winter put a temporary stop to tho operations.
It is well known that Mr. L. opposed
the railway from the first, and voted
against the bonus by-law, and that nothing would please hlm better than to have
the wholo affair stopped; but I think the
representations and advice of such aa he
will be put at their proper worth by the
people ot this city, who have shown time
and again that they want this railway
and will have it, too, notwithstanding
the efforts of Mr. L. and his confreres.
In conclusion, Mr. L. Bays the strength
of his party will be shown on the 21st
inst., when the mayor and aldermen will
be elected for tho ensuing year. Well, I
am content to wait for that occasion to
see it: Mr. Hendry was elected by acclamation on the Hth inst,, and Mr, L, did
not venture to bring out his man, and I
have no doubt that on the Slst will bo
shown the strength, or rather the weakness, of Mr, L.'s party of obstruction, by
the election of nine good and true men
as aldermen to support tho mayor—men
who will bo solid on the railway and also
favorable to tho progress and advancement of our fair oity, so that it can take
its proper place in wealth and Influence
on this coast. As nature has done so
much for It in that respect, It only remains for its oitizens to do their part to
that end.
Happily for New Westminster the
number of those who hold Mr. Lundbom's views on municipal affairs Is growing small, by degrees, and beautifully
less, and their influence Ib not of much
weight at present,
I am, sir, yours truly,

The customs department, Ottawa,

To the Municipal Electors qf New Westminster Ctty :
LADIES AHD GKNTIaKMKN,-
Havlng allowed mynamo to bo placed
ln nomination as a candidate for Alderman, I deem It proper to acquaint the
electors with my views and intentions on

I will, if elected, support the Southern
Railway scheme, believing that tho city
should keep good faith ln the matter, ami,
at the same Ume. thnt the city's Interests
demand that this enterprise should be
pushed without delay.
I believo tlio new council should deem
It necessary to devise and lay the foundation of somo scheme to secure to the city
water works to be owned by the city, nnd
also a thorough system of sewerage,
I shall endeavor to give all questions
arising with regard to our municipal affairs a careful consideration before voting
on the same, and shall favor oil measures
of progress compatible with the finances
of the oity,
I believe it Is the duty of the council to
have ln view at all times the moral and
