were very hitter toward England, but

CORRESPONDENCE.
A ''ttti ruins" Qneatlon.
Editor CoLtrMiiiAN.—SioTho question of efficient prot.clion againat lire in
this city, it^is needless io say, ia one of
the bnrniug questions of tbe *■ day, And
I would just remark that tho causes
which recently led so nearly to the loss
of our entire firo brigade have their root
rathor deeper than may at first sight appear. The reason, the real reason, why
tho citizens of Now Westminster arc iu
danger in tho near future of having their
lives and property placed in jeopardy
from this cause is, that they seem to believe iu tho gospel of something for nothing. This is a demoralizing state of matters and should bo relegated to the past.
We should have a paid fire company.
Those who aro realty benefited by good
fire protection ought to be ashamed to
accept it in the shape of charity. This,
of courso, leads to tho question of who
receive the most substantial benefits
therefrom! Many may imagine that wo
all do, and will no doubt be surprised at
tho statement that we are at least not
all/,.*! recipients of the benefits conferred on us by our firemen. Some of us
have to pay for theso benefits, notwithstanding the fact that we have a voluntary fire brigade. We nay for them in
increased rents. I have heard it remarked, quite frcquontly, that the insurance
companies ought to foot the bill, as they
aro the chief beneficiaries. This is not
the case. It ia quite evident to any ono
who will take the trouble to notico, that
a building which ia located whero it is
comparatively safe from fire, wh ather by
reason of its proximity to fire-pro )f buildings, or being easily accessible to the appliances of a good liro brigade, or both,
can lie insured ut a lower rate than a
similar building which has less protection. This is also true of the stock or
chattels within a building. Tl e building that can be insured choapnat mil
always bring tho highest rent, consequently the tenant pays in hard cash for
hia protection from fire, to hia landlord,
whether he in turn is required to rcim-
bur a the firemen for their Barvices or
not. Ground rents rise with efficient,'
aud fall with inefficient, fire protection.
Therefore ground rents are tbe natural
source from which to draw payment for
fire protection,        Alex. Hamilton,

HcitDOMtHr Evenins, Oct. 30, i_h. .
Mr. Tbi'inns Earle, elected member of tho Dominion parliament for
Victorin, on Monday lust, by acclamation, seems to he emphatically
tho people's choice. Immediately
on Mr. E. Crow Baker's resignation,
lust month, Mr. Earle was presented
with a monster requisition, signed by
about fivo hundred of hi. fellow
citizens, of all shades of politics indigenous and imported, requesting
him to -mow himself to be placed in
nomination for the vacant seat,
and promising their support in jase
of a contest. Mr. Earle accepted
and promised to accord tho present
federal administration a generous
and independent support. With
such a spontaneous and all but
unanimous expression of confidence
from the electorate, of course, Sir.
Earle's election by acclamation was,
as tbe Victoria papers put it, a
foregone conclusion. No opposition
materialized, and the returning officer went through the form, on Monday afternoon, of declaring the
nominations closed, and Mr, Earle
duly elected hy acclamation. Although not hitherto known as a
public mun, ns a successful business
mau of many years standing in Victoria, a thorough Victorian, and ono
possessing in the highest degree the
esteem mid confidence of his fellow-
citizens, the capital city will havo a
faithful and nblo representative in
Mr. Thos. Earle, and one besides
who will do no discredit to lho province as a whole.
A quostion worth considering is
raised by the little "spat" between
Messrs. Rami Bros, and the council
in tbe muter of tho laying out of
■ streets itt subdivided lots. The
position takon by tho ownors seems
n strong one tit lirst sight. One's
impulse is to agree with Aid. Jaques
tbat the council should not presume
to dictate to peoplo what they are
to do with their property. In matters of this sort most of us are inclined to insist strongly upon the
principle that one has a right to do
as he likes with hts own. But it
must not be forgotten that, that
principle has many limitations, A
man who owns a house in the middle of n 20-itcre field can burn it
down if he wants to (provided it is
not insured), but if the bouse stood
on a city street, he would probably
find, if he got rid of it in tliat way,
thut u man. cannot always do as he
likes with his own. ln fact, where
tho doing as you like inflicts injury
on others, or is likely to do so, the
law—ut least the underlying principle of law—says you Bhould bo restrained. Iu the case under discussion we are strongly inclined to believe that this underlying principle
comes into play. Lt is no question
of nn ownnr making an avenue
through his property for private
use. It'is a question of laying out
what is intended to serve tho purposo of it public street, and of subdividing, property for the purposo of
selling it. Tho owners may be willing to open the street after a fashion
in the first place, in order to get
their lots into the market; but
when the lots aro sold, will they continue to keep tbe street in repair,
and do all neuessury work upon it.
It will still bo their property, but
will tbey then bo so eager in asserting thoir right to "manage" it?  We
_ think uot, One of two things must
happen. Either the council must
adopt the street, and look after it,
or it will full into a condition which
will bo n disgrace to tho neighborhood nnd wry possibly a menace to
the health of the rosidonts, This, it
appears to us, is tho light in which
the niatter should be looked at;
nnd, if we are right, it follows that
the council would ht! acting iu tho
interest of tlio oitizens generally by
exorcising some control in the matter.       	
The European lournals just to
hand more than hoar out a recent
statement iu these columns, that
the unspeakable Turk is likely be-
' fore very long to ho tlio causo of
another European embroglio. Tho
Eastern question, or in other words,
tho government of tbo Sultan, is,
and seems 'ever likely to be, the
skeleton in tbe European cupboard.
The Russo Turkish war was the result of the misrule and brutality of
the "Sublime" Porte, and from
authentic letters of newspaper correspondents in Crete it is certain
that, unless something is donu to
check tbe pashas, history will rope.it
itself, and once more Eastern Europe
wilt bo the thealretrf a terriblo war.
Who does not remember tho Bulgarian atrocities, the awful nature of
whioh were revealed by Mr. Mo*
Gahau of the London Daily News,
revelations which were conclusively
proved by consular reports, and yet
were sneered at by the Earl of Bea-
conafiehl from his place in tho House
of Lords as "conoe-housn babble."
The recent nows from Oreto is vory
similar reading to the tetters of Mc*
Gahan. A number of notabilities
were arrested and imprisoned, whilst
others hnd to % to the mountains,
their crime being opposition to the
government] A deputy nrttood
Avastatiiiii- for a similar crimo, was
in thb early part of this month conveyed to Beyrout, there to suffer
imprisonment for fifteen years. This,
however, ia mere child's play to the
action of Cbakir Pasha, who was
sent to Oreto by the Sultan, his
master. It was represented that
this man, having passed many years
as an ambassador, was imbued with
liberal ideas, and ho himself assured
the inhabitants that his designs
were merely to restore tranquility to
the disturbed island, Upon this
the peoplo "heard him gladly," and
in a vory few days he was in possession of every strategical point,
Thon came a change, and his first
action wus to imprison the live commissioners of the Cretan poople.
The Turkish soldiers woro let looso
upon tho peasantry, and so great
was the alarm that all who could do
so lied rather thun remain where
tho Turk ruled. The Daily News'
correspond out snys '-the punsants
are mercilessly whipped nnd cudgelled. The knout works terribly."
The utter inhumanity is furthor revealed by tho statement that "elderly and innocent people are taken
and beaten ; many vomit blood and
die." Tbo Turkish soldiery have a
free hand, they search houses, beating and tormenting whom they will,
often exposing prisoners for hours
in tho burning sun. When escorting
Christian prisoners,, tho soldiers
compel thom to carry them on their
backs. Says the correspondent
already quoted : "One prisoner could
walk no further; his bead hung
down and he placed his hands on
his knesa to support the upper
part of his body, his eyes wildly
projecting like a crab's. Hard
pressed to udvunce, he cried 'Is
there no God on earth . Tho answer
was, 'Ohakir Pasha,'" In the district of Apokoronu soldiers have violated and killed Christian women,
until twenty of thom in dosperation
have appealed to tho foreign consuls for protection. In the same
place an old man had the huirof his
head and his beard pulled out. Such
is n brief but very incomplete ro
sume of tbo revolutions of the Daily
News' correspondent, a chapter of
diabolic villainy scarcely equalled
even in the history of tho Turkish
rule in Christian lands. What tho
outcome is to bc it is hard to say.
Probably things will become so utterly unbearably that the weak
Christian races will in hopeless desperation mnko one strong eftbrt for
their freedom. Then, probably,
tbey will ask Russia to help them,
and the Czar will seize tho opportunity and excuse for pushing his own
designs. Then the British government will say "hands oil'," and then,
and then, and then, ull sorts of dip-
lomutio tomfoolery will be gone
through, until, perhaps, the world
again witnesses such nuother congress us met in Berlin to agreo to n
basis of settlement which the Turk-
will lind no difficulty in upsetting
whonsoover it shall please him so tu
do, antt then the whole solemn" farce,
so near like a terriblo tragedy, will
bc repeated again and again. Such
is the usuul course of events, as
everybody can see who reads the
history of Europe. Nothing but
the expulsion of the Turk will ever
sullico, but how that is to be dono is
the problem which European statesmen seem to dislike discussing.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Quite soon tho ordnance department at Washington will make experiments with tho smokeless powder
which has been creating sueh u craze
in European military circles. It hus
teen asserted that tho powder,
though smokeless, is gifted with a
loudness of smell which is overpowering.
It has como to this in Chicago,
according to an exchango, which

Monday morning \ witnessed a sensation*
al seouo on tho dlstrlot railway, says tlto
Hu Jamos1 Oazolte (Ci-jntlou.) 1 got into
the train ot Uiouoostor roart station. Seated
opj-osltu mo wiM-oa pale, itiiildlo-uged lady
nml a fiiiin youth hardly out of his teens,
Sttxtto thorn wits a linrlyi Mkiiig 'squire,
-Vlllctltly up.oii a vi.-it. Wo wero going
lownward, und ut Booth Kensington u
Lhlcksotyoung than got, in. who pinniped
himself down by my Hide. Ho had it lighted
cigarette hi hia hand, aad as Ihopuiigeut
bluo smoke curled into tHe, lady's faco nlm
cuutdiod und lookod distressed.
JL'tia youth said: ■-This is Hot a smoking
cai-niigo." -Tin nol smoking," retorted
the other, "and 1 daro say it will keep lu
unlil wo get to tho next station." "Tobacco
smoke makes my mother ill and I must ask
you to put ont your cigurotte." "I'm not
smoking nud I shall do nothing of the
kind." "Then Islutli muko you." suid lho
In-!, whoso fuco puled. Ho arose, when tho
othor put out u list, a single blow from
which would probably havo crippled that
poor youth.
And now u singular thing happened. Tho
burly squire, who hud remained passive,
quietly produced some)hit g that gllstoneu
nud boforo you could count threo thero wus
a allele and tlio young man with the cigar*
otto was handcuffed, Huld tho burly one:
"You'll pick up your olgarollo and put It

Uoforo wo left it tiio cigaroito had boon

a slight smile ho would mako no sign.

A FORECASTLE
~YAM\
Terrible Experience with Yellow
Fever Aboard Ship.
The long, bot day waa over- and with tho
setting sun bad come a breeze, boforo
wliich the Rood ship Bristol was steadily
slipping through tho oily-lookin-f water.
Six bolls bod just been Btruck; tbesaloon
wna ill-most deserted! and tbe poop was peopled wilh weary passengers, reveling inthe
no ft, cool wind nnd tbe departure of our
etn my, the sun. Tho main dock was alive
with ihu midship passengers, audtho watch
on duck, wbo, mixing indiscriminately,
lounged and chatted and smoked and slept
™_ their Inclination moved them.      <*«■*•«
I had como up on the forecastle-head to
enjoy a quiet cigar and to delight my bou!
with the wondrous beauty of tbo night Up
here, ovory thing wnsqulet-andl was alone,
■■iivo lor the man on the lookout, wbo leaned
ou the opposite ratios motionless asastatue,
und evidently   occupied   with his  own      ,        ,  , ,,     ,       „  ,   ,
thoughts. Looking aEt, the ship was almost ^^E,?,1!,1,,1!'™!.^\ .       a80*- ,wllio-
in darkness,   being shadowed with  the ™" "" f'" ","   ""- -*"
inouiitnitis of canvas which roso dim
mid mysterious toward tbe sky. The
murmur of voices was bushed into a
kind of lullaby, under whoso drowsy
music both ship ■ and ocaan scorned
to bo dreaming. Overhead, tho tropical
slurs hung out their whito lamps againBt!
It yuu, sir," be Said auddiasttji-
llcui.d.
Aftor a littlo while, I wont down into tho
suli-un; nud hud tho circumstances boon dif-
fcroiit-,-1 would have roared, with laughter at
tho sccno which met my oyes. Jacob had
undorgono quito a transformatlon, and
how it was managed in tlio time, I
was at a loss to guoss. Ho wub
rigged out in his best suit, nud In all the
glory of a dross Blurt of startling whiteness decorated with dinmoud studs, lio
hnd not seated himself unlil I arrived,
and stood con toni plating himself nnd hia
surroundings lu tho mirror over tho sideboard, his ebony countenance shining with
ineffable satisfaction. All throuph tho
meal his look of sclf-sntlslicd importance
amused mo greatly; but when tea was
over tho old fcelhig of depression returned
with renewed force. King Death reigned
ovor tho ship, nnd tho majesty and terror
of his presenco wero all around.
-'(Joiiio into iny cubin, Jacob," said  I,
when you hnvo cleared up, and wo will
have a smoke toget her."
Ho agreed, cheerfully, and I left tho
saloon. My cabin was under tho bronk of
the poop, and had a window looking right
ou the main dook, as woll as lho usual seaward porthole, Before llgbtiug iny lamp I
lookod out ut tho quiet ship- Tho full
tropical moon had risen whilo wo woro al
our meal, and filled tho dock and tho rigging with her whito radiance, About ton
yards from the window stood tho deck-
houso whore tho dead man was lying, und
tho moonlight glittered on its window and
the brass-work of the door, Whilo I looked,
iwoudorcd- '-Shnll I dlo, too, during this
awful visitation!" Then I thought 1 will
just writo directions uk to what is to be
done with iny clothes and lotters, now
whilo I can.'
I sat down at a smnll tablet at the othor
Bido of tlio cabin, hmdlcd tho littlo brass
swing lamp, and bogan lo writo, 1 hail
hardly bogun whon Jacob knocked at the
door, and when X cnlloil advanced into the
room pipe in hand. Asking him to sit down,
I told him I would finish writing soon, lio
went ovor and, sitting ut the open window,
commenced to smoke. Tho night wus so
utterly still thut the scratching of my pen
seomod loud and nggrosslvo, Suddenly I
wns startled by Jacob's pipo going crash on
tho floor of tho cabin; und looking nt him I
saw that his black fuco had becomo a light
gray color, and that bis 03-03 wero Blurting
but of his head. Beforo I could movo 01
speak I heard tho squeak of a door-handle
softly turned.   I crossed bosido tho negro
contained tho dead - carpenter. As I lookeu
my heart censed to beat and my hair stood
up. Tho door slowly opened, and out into
tho bright moonlight cumo tho tnll figuro of
thcdcndiunnl Itsccmcdto pauso and hesitate for amomcut, uiul then ndvnuccdwith
muffled tread straight to tho saloon entrance
 h _.  and my cabin,   The moon shono full on tho
ihe'Vio_ctn_ky, and sotTong trails of light ghastly face, bound about with an old rod
glittering across the dark water until thoy
broke in crystal shivers on tbo hull. Tho
ll-fb. from thu open ports of tho saloon
looked hot und yellow, and only enticed a
handkerchief, from which tho unclosed
dead eyes shono as from under a cowl. On
it cumo, nearer and nearer, whilo. I remained frozon with horror,'   Wo bonrd tho
dull reflection from tho soo. Bomo 0110 who ! «-*- footstep approach tho possugo-door,
was playing on lho puno in tho music room , **ntl then a heavy full aud all was atill.
liiul drifted into tho loved strain of "Homo, At that moment Jacob gavo ti fearful
Bivoot Homo," and wut-sending it stealing shriek and fainted. This brought mo to my
oiit, over lho sen liko abonedlolion. Hound senses; and slopping ovor lho prostrate
the ithiirp cut-water lho spray was rising tu bluck I seized tho lump and hurried
11 fairy fountain, whoso drops ruug liko a °-t- Thero luy tho ghastly figuro across
chime of tiny silvor bolls as thoy mot tho tho doorway. I had uot been dreaming
waves again. Down In tho cool depths'** then, and it waa no fancy. I niftiest dropped
shoal of Hsh wero playing round the ship's tho lamp in my renewed terror. But 1
hen'il, looking, as thoy moved through the bruced myself together, and stooping ovor
phosphorus-laden water, liko fish-shaped the body turned it on its back. As I did so
t.-it',-nonts of solid rainbow gono mad. a faint sigh camo from tho whito lips.   I
Thus I rested and wns at poaco until ray bu. a mai* egahi, and roared: " Jacob, you
l-ov-HO wus broken by tho sound of foot- idiot, como hero; tho carpenter is not dead
slops ascending tbo forecostlo laddor.  I  at. all."
lurnoti and wus taco to fuco with my cabin     "well, my story Is out  Wo carrlod him

night, isn't iti" bo said.
•■Magnificent," I answered, nnd thon
lidded: "It's not only tho present delight
1 luil I um Uuuikf ul for, but for tho memory
it will be in days to come, for you know 'a
thing of beauty is a joy forever.'"
'■I dou't know about that," ho rejoined;
"it depends wholly on tho clrcumstunces
under which one bas seen it Do you know
this lovely night has called to my mind ono
of the most unpleasant incidents in ray
life."
'■Indeed*, what was that!"
" Sit down here on this coil of ropo, aud
if you caro to bear It, I will tell you as we
smoke." •- ■
: i*ladly accepted his offer, antt'Btcvenson
began:
Whon I was a young fellow, years ago In
London. I was in the employ of an undo of
mine who was at the head of a large firm of
shipowners. My health bad broken down
owing to hard work and a sevoro season,
und the doctor ordered me a loug roBt and 0! doep-tott
sea voyage. The firm at onco gave mo tho | °f(},?P**i
required leave, and shipped mo oft us solo

in tlio morning tho doctor came, 1:
said nothing to hlm about the porf. i-uinnct*
of tho night before, Tho faot was, Jacob
had mistaken tho deadly trance of lho yollow fever for actual death, and I, being so
broken down with watching, hud never
questioned his statement
Poor Chips hnd -revived a littlo, nnd in
thostrongth of delirium bad wandered on
dock;;nnd bo ib all camo abunt ns I have
told you. Would you believe it! That carpenter afterward recovered unit i. nlivo at
tho present dny. Tho captain, too, got
bettor. Neither Jacob nor I caught llio fever, nnd not many weeks later wo left
that accursed placo aud woro bowling
along for dcnrold England. A soft, still

had to anchor outsido and wait our turn to
be berthed. Wo loy for some days, during
which tho heat was intense, when, all un-

It was terriblo to lio day after day on tho

to tho shore boats to como off and tako

crew hud deserted at tho first, wlththo
exception of tho captain, tho carpenter, a mil, thin Scotchman from tho

tons, while Cuuada (British Columbia)
figures among tho inoreascs to almost
tho exact amount uf Australia's decrease, viz , 22,173 tuns. Canada's increase i* due, of course, to the establishment uf the direct line ot steamers

upon requiring tho C.P.R.Co. lo make
tbu draw in tbo Mission bridge 100
feot, instead of 80 feet as proposed by
the railway company. It wili bo ro
membered that fur tbe past six months

of tho Frasor Ui ver should be kopt freo
from every obstruction; and as tho
opinion of a large number of interested
people led to tho belief that nu 80-foot

will bo moat gratifying to every ono to
learn that the federal government has
(irmly resisted the proposals of the C.

The troublo between Mr.S. Jl. Webb
and tbo Salvation army has not
yet beeu publicly explained or set
forth in a proper light. The facta nro
simply these: On Monday night last
tho Salvation army came through tlio
narrow passage wny between Front
aud Columbia streets, and Mr. Webb
want out and confronted tbem, holding
up both hands. He requested thom
not to use the passage way as it was
very unsafe when a crowd got on it.
The gentleman who presided »t tho
basa drum, probably thinking that Mr.
Wobb had thoughts of causing trouble,
butted tho hitter gentleman in tbu abdomen, with tho drum, with such good
uffect that ho involuntarily sat down
on tbo cold, wet, slippery planks. The
rest of tho army pushed oil with a
burst of "hymns and psalms and
spiritual songs," and left Mr. Webb 11
regain his perpendicularity ns best ho
might. Accompanied by a friend, Mr.
Wobb went down to the army barracks
a littlo later in tho evening and found
tho people pinging. He took off bis
hat and waited until thoy had finished,
and then bo said lo the captain, "I
havo called to explain why I attempted
tti hinder your passage tbioiigh the
alley." At thia juncture a hoarse
voice iu tho rear bellowed. "Let ua
pray," nud in a moment nil fell on
their kueoa, and Mr. Webb .and his
friend cooing no chance of doi'ug businesa with I hem, left the hall. Messrs.
Webb und Rankin, of thu Holbrook
House, louse from Judge Begbie a atrip
of 10 feet noxt their places of business
for a certain rental por annum. The
lease ia for five yoars, and this is tho
fourth year. The lessees built a sido-
walk uu thia atrip uf laud for tbe convenience of their custom era, and lrain-
taih the structure at their own expense, lt is not so strong as tlio ordinary sidewalk, and is very liable to go
duwn with a crowd ou it, and the
depth iu fourteen feet. Mr. Webb
notified thu Salvation array about two
months ago not to make use of this
route in their marches, as it was. not
safe. The walk is in audi a condition
that tho passage of the nrmy on Monday night shook some glasses off tho
Holbrook bar, and also some articles
in Mr. Webb's atore. Unless the army
takes action in this matter Mr. Webb
does not intend to go to law about it.

He was a leader in nil affairs, social aud

and popular ollicor; and on Ida departure fur Portland 18months ago tbe noncommissioned oflicers nnd men showed
thoir appreciation of hia services to tho

Tlio deceased was born in Nova Scotia and came with bis parents to this
