Present — Aldermen Reid, Curtis,
McPhaden, Cunningham and Keary.
Hia worship Mayor Townsend in the
chnir.
COMMUNICATIONS
From Jos. Wintemute, asking that
n rond ho built to a new workshop
coiiting six or sovon thousand dollars
which he is building nbove Olarkson
street, anil asking that Olarkson itreet
near tho bridge be put in good repair;
and detailing leveral of the improvements ho had made on tha itreoti at
his own oxponso.   Recoived.
Aid. Curtia said that although Mr.
Wintemute had done thia work without instructions from the council, they
ought to help him, It would be a
benefit all round if Olarkion atreet wai
finiihed.
Aid, Cunningham corroborated Aid.
Curtis' remarks and laid Mr. White-
mute had spent both time and money
on the streets. It wai to the heat interests of the city to auiit suoh industries ii furniture factories, and they
ought by all means to be encouraged.
Aid. McPhaden iald that although
ho admitted the excellence of Mr.
Wintemute's olaim to assist mice from
tho council, he would like to know
where the money wai to como from,
Aid. Jaques very humorously pointed out the excessivo hardship it would
be to allow the next council to start
off with too big a aurplus. Tho surplus of the United States' treasury was
going to kill that country and wo did
not want the next oouncil swamped iu
any such manner. Some of the $902
surplus in tho city treasury ought to
be spent in complying with Mr. Wintemute's reasonable request.
Aid. McPhaden enquired if there
was such a surplu** as Aid. Ji.qttos had
stated.
Aid. Curtis suid there wns not nur
was thero likely t:> ho. In tho earlier
purl or tho yoar hu hud tried lo check
liouvv expenditure!, although with little
sticccari, but iii spite of nil that lie was
in favor of grunting the request of Mr.
Wintemuto.
Moved by Aid. Cumiiiighuui, seconded by Aid. Curtis, that thu bonrd
of works be iustructod to proceed with
the opening of Clurkson street in conformity with tho potition of Jos, Wintemute,   Carried.
On motion the buard of works was instructed to finish tho work on Armstrong street.
From Mrs. S. V. Hod', Aldergrove,
stating thut her boh had been working
on the Westminster Southern Railway,
but had not received a cent of pay, and
asking the council to'intefere in Iub behalf.
On motion tho clerk wus instructed
to reply that tho council had nothing
whatever to do with the matter.
From H. C. Chamberlain, asking-
atreet lines of block 10, lot 9, subdivision 19 and 20.
On motion the engineer waa in*
structcd to give the necessary lines.
From Jaa. H. White, asking streot
lines opposite lot 29, block 22, aa it
iB the intention of the missionary society of the Methodist church to build
a mission church thereon. Received
and request granted.
From A. Harrison Thomas, M, D.,
thanking the mayor for bringing his
former communication boforo the council. Received and clerk instructed to
reply to the effect that he had bettor
meet tho new council.
FromW. J. Fronch, stating that
his fence had heen removed during
atreet improvements and never replaced, and holding council responsible
if uny damage is dono to his property.
Received and tiled.
From Davio & Bodwell, of Victoriu,
stating that they had been instructed
by Thos. Gorrio to inform the council
that, to save further trouble about the
Hags, he would accept $70 in satisfaction of hia claim, without prejudice to
his right to sue for tho wholo amount
claimed, and that they had received
instruction to take proceedings for tho
wholo amount if this offer ia nob accepted. Aid. Jaques said if they
didn't like to take tho $10 offered by
the mayor, lot them sao. Received
and filed.
liEPonm
Tho boards of works and health, fire
and light, water and sewerage, police and
finance committees reported recommending payment of varioui accounts.
All reports adopted.
The finance committee reported;
1. That the matter of renewal of
water  lot leases of Jas. Wise  and C.
Millard aud the rtppliaiLion of D. Ma-
Giilivray bo left for tho new council to
arrange.
2. Thnt Walter J, Walker bo appointed auditor and that tho finance
committee bo ompowerod to arrange
salary for sumo.
3. That tho city Bhould co-operate
with Vancouver and other cities of
tho province in memorialising the pro*
vincial government to so amend sec.
3 of chap. III. of tho consolidated
statutes of tho province as to exclude
frum ita provisions the several cities of
tho provinco, relating to personal property and income taxes, aud that the
clerk be uud is hereby instructed to
toward said memorial.
4. That ndvortisoments for tenders
for railway debentures be put in both
local papers and the Colonist for a
week, also in the Monetary Times,
Toronto, and Journal of Commerce,
Montreal, four issues.      Adopted.
Aid. Reid suggested that it would
be a good movo to advertise in some
of tlio groat English papers, as from
that country most of the money for
American railroads came.
Aid, Curtia informed tho council
that ull the English money syndicates
had agents in this country, and upon
the advice of the agents na to the reliability of the enterprise they would
advance nr not udvuiica the money.
Aid. Curtia nlso stated that uo good
monetary negotiations could be ar-
ruuged with English capital except
through Canadian ngents.
UNFINISHED  I1UKINHSH.
The stroet naming uud numbering
by-law waa hailed with uudib'.e smiles,
but Aid. McPhndcu hnd it ready this
timo and brought it forth, and the list
of uamea was read by the olerk. Some
of the names wore deemed uf the jaw
breaking otder, but the majority of
them woro thought very suitable.
On motion tho city eugiuecr wns in*
structcd to place them on tho map.

Mr, Gladstone toward the end of the

family were yearning to have the
pleasure and honor of securing him aa
what the Americana term a "Houae
Guest" at Hawarden. Mr. Parnell did not, I understand, respond
to the invitation of the statesman
with Ihe enthusiasm Gladstone is accustomed to expect on such occasions,
but he did not absolutely refuse to
visit Hawarden in tho course of the
autumn. A few weeks ago Mr. Gladstone, aooording to the Manchester
story, wrote to remind Mr. Parnell of
his engagement, and expressed the
earnest hope that Hawarden would
have the high honor of receiving him
as a guest on a certain specified day,
when then would be I party of congenial politicians to meet bim. From
that day, however, until Wednesday
last, Mr. Gladstone, as the story goes,
never received any answer whatevor,
from Mr. Parnell, who, unless political
friends at Manchester have been romancing, haa evidently treated his
venerable friend with scant courtesy.

OREAT UNDER MISFORTUNE.
London, Dec. 0.—Dom Pedro nearly fainted on arriving at hii hotel, being overcome by excitement and the
fatiguei of the day. He aoon rallied,
however, and at no time hu he been
otherwise than cheerful and calm. He
says hs would return to Brazil only it
unmistakably recalled by the people.
He hu announced that he will attend the sitting of tho Portuguese Academy to hear Padre C.ndido
deliver a eulogium upon the late
King Luis. The meeting between
Dom Pedro nnd the queen dowager
was deeply affecting. She broke down
and wept while talking of her late
husbsnd. King Carlos presided over
a cabinet meeting on Friday, called to
decide upon the manner in whieh Dom
Pedro should be received.

and Councillors Reid, Garratt, Stewart

for tho purpose of considering the following government communications:
From W. S. Gore, surveyor-general,
stating that as the construction of the
North Arm bridges was about completed, the government had mueh
pleasure in handing over ihe structure
to the council of Richmond municipality; from W. S. Gore, surveyor-general, containing an extract of the report of Geo. Turner, to tho effect that
t caretaker should be appointed to look
after the North Arm bridges, that
iteamboat oaptaim ihould be warned
not to approach too near the bridges
until the swing is fully open and that
a lead being mado to the opening of
the swing would tend to prevent
steamers striking tho spans. On motion, it was decided that the communications from W. S. Gore be received
and laid on the table for one hour for
the purpose of inspecting tho bridges.
On resuming, it wu deoided, on
motion, that the reevo and Coun.
Stewart be appointed a committee to
engage a board of engineers to inspect
the bridges, both in respect of the general plan of the work in detail, and to

In the dusk of hut evening tho Japaneso sealing schooner Adele, Oapt.
Hansen, which left Viotoria in the latter part of September ostensibly bound
for Yokohama, re-entered the harbor
and anchored off Warren's wharf..
When the Adele left port it wai common talk on the streets and among
sealing men that the real object of her
trip was to nid the breeding islands cf
the Alaska Commercial Oo. Accord- ,
ingly her return caused a very considerable amount of excitement among
those interested in the sealing industry. Oapt. Hansen wu inclined to be
very uncommunicative, but it wu ascertained that in prospecting new
rookeries, whioh was one of the principle objects of the cruise, the schooner had been successful. After leaving
Viotoria the Adele skirted up the west
coast, and made several of the important islands in the Behring's sea. She
had fairly good sealing weather. Almost all the hunting wai done in new
locations, and ihe returned with plenty
of skins in her hold to meet all the expenses of the prospecting trip. The
exact number of the catch vu not
made publio lut night, but it is in the
neighborhood of sixteen hundred.—

Deer Marina.
In addition to the information referred to lut week in tho Sentinel u
to the killing of doer for the hides, we
are this week in receipt of a letter
from a private source which fully confirms tbe statements made in that ar-
tide. Our informant states that the
slaughter is still going on and that
"thousands of deer are being shot
down for the paltry sum psid for the
skin, and aeveral tone are being for-
warded for shipment." A resident in
the Spaltumoheen distriot state! that
the miniger of tho steamen plying between Enderby and Sieamoui
hu refused to transport the skins
waiting thore for shipment. He referred to a party from Seattle whopassed
through the distriot recently for the
"express purpoie of arranging for deer
■kins, and that unprincipled traden
are getting organized lodges of Indians
to slay the deer wholesale." The ume
party says "this thing is going on all
over tho oountry, and that back of
Clinton last winter two men killed
1200 deer, while there are men living
in that district who make their living
at it." The names of traden in the
Spallumcheen and Okanagan districts
who are trafficking in hides are given,
but we are not at liberty to make them
publio at this writing. The government, however, should investigate the
statements mado, and we havo no
doubt all the information necesiary
will be forthcoming to prove the truth
or falsity of them,—Sentinel.

by devoutly marching in a body to
the council chambers whenever
they hear the civio bell toll for nn

able to catch and appropriate what
is good in the old counoil and the
moro intelligently carry on. its unfinished enterprises. The maiden
deliberations of tho now council will
be watched with interest. , Thore
aro aome very good men in its makeup. There are others not so good.
But we shall suspend our judgment
and hold ourselves opon to be convinced that the municipal council
for 1890 is the best in every respect
that tho royal city has over had.
It will bo generally admitted that
three good men havo boen elected
for water commissioners in Messrs.
J. 0. Armstrong, W. A. Duncan,
aud (loo. Turner. The total number of votes polled on this ticket
was also small as compared with the
voting strength of the city, unci for
the samo reasons that produced a
similar result oil tho voting for
mayor und aldermen. Whilo on
tho subject of tho water commissioners, it is only fair to Senator Mclnnes, who was put in nomination
unsought by himself, as wero the
others, and who received a considerable vote as it was, to state that he
lost many votes owing to the faot
of his senatorship and the unavoidable impression that his Ottawa engagement would interfere with his
duties as water commissioner. Mr.
Major, it should be mentioned, withdrew from the nomination at tho
last moment, which left but Uve
nominees to select from, instead of
the original ten proposed by the
council.

The elections in this city yesterday passod oil' very quietly, as ovory-
ono anticipated, tho aggregate voto
polled, as shown by the mayoralty
contest, being considerably loss than
half the number on the register.
The reasons for this are numerous.
As we stated yesterday, there was
no very important issue before tho
electors, resulting in a natural hick
of interest, and the weather was
wretched as well as the state of the
roads. The fact, too, that in wards
one and four thero wus no contest
for aldermen tended directly towards
making the total vote for mayor
smaller than if them had been more
inducement for indifferent or supine electors to visit; the polls. Last,
hnt not leaBt, probably, as a factor
in the small vote forthe mayoralty
should be mentioned the fact that
neither of tho candidates conducted
a personal canvass, nor were their
agents or supporters encouraged to
do so. In fact, by general consent,
thero was practically no electioneering
done at the elections, except to a
limited extent in the aldermanio
contests in wards two aud three.
Under the circumstances, then, the
vote for mayor was not so small as it
soems, and, while Mr. Brown's majority is a fairly respectable one,
Mr. Townsend's voto is one, when
all the circumstances are considered,
that shows him to stand well in the
estimation of tho ratepayers, after
his year of sorvice in the council, as
alderman and mayor.' • There can be
no doubt that, had Mr. Townsend
chosen to seek re-election for the
honors, without raising tho question
of salary, ho would havo been returned without opposition as a mark
of approval of his services, Mr.
Townsend's emphatic and definito
stating of the salary issue in the
lirst place was responsible for Mr,
Brown's candidature, and to a certain extent for his election. Wo
• supported Mr. Brown, ns our readers
know, apart from the salary question, on the ground that, whilo Mr.
Townsend had made a good mayor,
we believed that Mr. Brown would
"make a better. We think so still,
and, therefore, cannot but commend
the choice of the ratepayers in tho
mayoralty matter.
'ine alaermanic contests m wards
.two and threo did not go altogether
as we anticipated, nor in every respect as we honestly conceived to bo
in the city's best interests, Tho
ratepayers of the wards themselves,
howover, aro the ones to bo suited,
and wo bow with the utmost graco
to their superior judgment. Notwithstanding, we must express our
opiniou that in the (to us) phenomenal defeat of Jno, Reid in ward
two nnd of H. Elliott in ward three
the city loses experienced and valuable advisers and counsel which we
are afraid the new board as now
constituted will stand in need of,
more particularly in the board of
works department. We shall not
indulge in forebodings of evil, however, hut accept the new council
which tho ratepayers havo given us,
for better, for worse, and congratulate every mother's son of them. It
is unnecessary to soy that wo heartily agree with tho ratepayers in their
unmistakably expressed choice of
Jas. Johnston as one of the aldermen in ward two and of B. W.
Shiles in ward three. We- havo
nothing to say against the return of
B, McPhaden as tho seoond alder
men in ward two, except that we still
believe Jno. Reid would havo been
a much better choice. With respect
to the election of Marshall Sinclair
as tho second alderman in ward
three, we would repeat, what wo
said before the election, that wo do
not believo lio will do discredit to
the oflico of alderman. Wo honestly believed, ond still hold to the belief, that Mr, Elliott, having had
many years' experience in civic matters, and particularly in connection
with thu department of the board of
works, would have bueu a more vnluablo accession to the city council
for tlio ensuing year than Mr. .Sinclair. However, if tho latter carries
with him into the council the same
energy and skill that he has exhibited nsn canvasser.hewillmakoahowl-
ing succtjsM as alderman. Mr. Sinclair
is a comparatively young man. Wo
congratulate him on his very evident fauulty of got-there-otivenoss,
and during tho ensuing municipal
year Thf. Columbian will give him,
ns well ns every member of the now
civic parliament, a perfectly fair
Held, without favoring any. The
municipal council for 181)0, whioh
waa completed by yestorday 'a elections, will bofoundto bo constituted as follows : Mayor, John 0.
Brown j aldermen, Messrs. Alfred
Smither, Joseph Bateholor (ward
ono), Jas. Johnson, D. McPhaden
(ward two), B. W. Shilea, Marshall
Sinclair (ward three), D. Lyal nnd
H. Hoy (ward four). It will' bo
soon that tho hew oouncil is com*
posed of new men, with the exception of Messrs. Shiles and McPhaden, and, with the additional exception of Mr. Hoy, both mayor and
aldermen are now in the sense of
having never occupied positions at
tho counoil board in thin  oity  be*

It is characteristic of tho morning paper, nud a very fair illustration of its "style" all through, that
ib should retract election slanders,
that it has stubbornly and wantonly
reiterated for days, aftor tho election
is over and the purposo for which
they wero uttered has boen either
fulfilled or defeated. This is what
our very absurd and erring cotem-
pprary has done with respect to its
intended slander against Mr. Jas.
Johnson, who was yesterday returned at the head of tho poll for
ward two. The slander first appeared in the Truth (1) of Thursday
morning. On Friday wo gavo it a
contradiction that should have satisfied that paper, if it had the least
disposition to be honest—or at least
set it thinking nnd inquiring, if it
wanted to be fair and repair an injustice before the election, obviously
the propor time to make a retraction.
But what does the "independent"
Churcli street sheet do? Why, it
mulishly reiterates its slander of
Thursday on both Saturday and
Sunday mornings. And on this
(Tuesday) morning, when tho election' is over, and the falso insinuation had done all tho harm that it
could (which, as the sequel has
shown, was nil, owing to tho source
Cram     -■ hlvU    tli    tiUJUIIIttHU,     OXOOpC
upon tho head of its originator), the
journalistic terror to tho "early
worm" in this bright and blooming
burg breaks out in its editorial
columns, with a mingled "gall" and
simplicity that is as refreshing ns
whisky-anci-soda, with tho following
cheerful but tardy confession:
"bYom careful enquiry mado among
those who aro best acquainted with
James Johnson, it appears that, so
far from being a Salvationist, he is
a rigid Presbyterian of the old school.
It is with unfeigned pleasure wo
make this correction." Now, what
is a discriminating public to think
of such a confession in view of all the
circumstances 1 There are only two
conclusions possible ; Truth must be
cither a deliberate and unblushing
journalistic knave or a hopeloss
"chump." In charity let us suppose the latter, and we havo the
sublime and edifying spectacle of a
so-called journal making "careful
enquiry," when it is practically too
late, into the truth or falsity of
slanders that have been making its
columns offensive and ridiculous for
fully half n week. It does not need
calcium lights or othor stage accessories to enhance such an object lesson.    Verb. sat.

To give persons unacquainted with

the surface of the earth—especially
in their relations to the welfare of
man—has been the aim of Prof. N.

tors, he treats clearly and in the light
of the latest knowledge, earthquakes,
volcanoes, caverns and cavern life,
rivers and valleys, the instability of
the atmosphere, forests of North
Amerioa, and the orign and nature
of soils. Especially attractive are
the discussion of future earthquakes,

WOODEN  FRUIT-BOXES.
lion Th»y Are Hade Ta the Great Fae-J
lot ies of the *"*"«(t Districts.   .
How many of those who buy a,box of ber
vies, cherries, plums or othor .small fruit, of
tho grocer or vender at the door, ltnow how
the little wooden boxes which hold tbo fruit
aro mado? asks the San Diego (CaL) Union.
Litflit and fragile, thinner than pasteboard,
and apparently simple in construction, they
aro by fnr the best thing yet devised for]
tho handling and marketing of small fruits.
Thoy oro mado bf shavings. Tho thin
sheets of wood which form tho aides and
bottom of a berry-box aro nothing more nor
less than small pieces cut from a great pino,
Ilr or whitowood shaving, and bent and fast-
cned together in the shape of a box. Thenc]
.shavings, of course, are not like those which
fall in graceful ourves from the carpenter's
plane, but are great long sheets, in each of
which is almost tbo ontiro wood of a big
log, and from a single shaving is frequently
mado from 3,000 to 5,000 berry-boxes.
To one who has never witnessed the man- j
ufacture of berry-boxes, evory stage of the
process Is extremely interesting. A reporter recently visited the worlts of tho
Colorado Fruit Packing Company, across
tho bay, and there bad an opportunity to
witness the operation of the machinery and
soo the boxes made,
Tbe logs, which are brought down from
tho Northern coast, ore unloaded in the
waters of tho bay and floated into tho boom
closo to the shore, where tho factory is located. From thero they are hauled up on a
tramway running down into tho water, so
that the logs can be floated upon tho car.
When brought up tho logs aro cut by a
drag-saw into uniform lengths as desired.
Those sections of the log aro then placed in
a large steam-box, of whieh thero are several convenient to tho machinery, and left
for twelve hours subject to tho effects of
tho exhaust steam from the engine. This]
softens tbe wood bo that it can be out into
the thin sheets desired, without checking or
splitting into fragments.
A section of a great log, three feet In di*
araeter, was rolled out from the steam-box
by two men, and, after the center had been
marked at both ends,was hoisted by a small
derrick and Bwung over a machine, the
principal feature of which was a long, bevel-
edged knife, flrmly set in a strong iron
frame, In very much the same manner as
tho blade of a carpenter's piano Is set. Indeed, the cutting portion of this machine is a
great monster shaving-plane, with the edge
of the blade fixed upward. The log was next
lowered by the derrick to its proper position, the operator of the machine pulled a
lever and two great damps, with strong,
sharp-pointed jaws, two inchos long, advanced and pushed their iron teeth into tho I
marked centers at each end of tho log. The
great wooden cylinder was now held firmly
in front of the blade of the immense shaving-plane, and when tho operator pulled another lever, the log commenced to revolve
toward tbo cutting edge, exactly liko tho'of the daily newspaper, tho idea of collat-
stnp of wood, in a turner's latho rovolvos ing nml digesting tho news became moro
toward tho cbisol. Another pull by the op- and more romprohcusivo, and from the be-
orator, and the frame holding tho great ginning of tho present contury up to this
blado began to move uptotho revolving log. time, lho American newspaper bas grown

the fact can bo hardly realized that it ia imt
littlo ovor a hundred years sinco the lirat
newspaper of any kind on the American
continent was started, and but littlo ovor
half that timo since the commencement of
the.flrst dally.  Such is the fact, however.
April S-i, 1704, saw tho first newspaper In
the English language in the American colonics or on the North American continent.
This was the Boston Netvs Letter, a small
half sheet, published by John Campbell, a
Scotchman, who was a bookseller and a
postmaster. Tho contents of the first number were: "Queen's speech in tho English
parliament, u few local articles under tho
Boston head, one advertisement, extracts
from tho London papers and four paragraphs of marinenewsl" Advertisements
woro inserted at reasonable rates, from two
pence to llvo shillings.
In 1721 James Franklin established u
newspaper ln Boston. Tho paper was severely critical withal, and somewhat hoBtllo
to tho clergy. Franklin became unpopular,
was censured and imprisoned for "scuudal-
ous libel." James Franklin was strictly
forbidden to print tho New England Courant
without supervision, etc. He evaded this
by substitution of his brother's name for his
own. Tho Courant lived three years.
Tho American Weekly Mercury, of Philadelphia, issued in 1732, was tho third newspaper printed in tho colonies. It was made
up of quaint advertisements and short paragraphs of antique nows.
Tlie Pennsylvania Gazette, edited by Dr.
Franklin, and published in 1729, was tho
next venture to mark journalism. In its
prospectus Franklin unuounccB his intention to mnko a good, readable journal; and
in his ideas it Is easy to seo that ho wna far
in advance of his contemporaries. Hia paper consisted of four small pages, and tha
BunaiTiptiou wns ton shillings n year.
In 1785, Thomas Fleet established the
Boston Euciidm Post. Fleet was born in England mid learned bis trade thero. Hu
once advertised u nogro woman for salo as
follows: "To bo sold by tho printer of this
papor, tho very best negro woman in tliis
town. Sho has had the small-pox and
measles, is as hearty as a horse, as brisk
as a bird, and will work liko a beaver."
Fleet was a humorous character, and made
monoy out of his paper,
Tlio Pennsylvania Journal and R'eckly Ad-
I'ertlj.t'r was started in 1703. At tho timeof
tho Stamp Act, in 1703, tho paper enme out
in mourning with tho motto, " Tho times
ore dreadful, dismal, dolorous and dollar-
less." Thoro was also a death's head in
one cornor of tho page, and under it those
words:   "Ohi tho postal atamp."
A journal called the Now York Gazette
flourished a littlo whilo in the year 1771, but
was romarkablo in no particular*, and tho
first dally in tho United States, tho Pennsylvania Packet, afterward called tho Dally Advertiser, was started in 1704.
Theso woro tho first attempts at American journalism, and, as such, aro nlono

blade of the great shaving-machino thero
came out Irom undor the knife a long,
wide, thin strip of wood, which the men
pulled out and rolled and folded up liko
wall-paper.
An examination ofthiB great whito steaming shaving showed that its entire length
was marked by parallel lines, out partially
through tho wood) made by the littlo cutters at tho back of tho log. Tbo purposo of
these lines was a mystery until tho operator
carelessly broke off an end of tho groat
shaving, making a strip two or three inches
wide, and quickly bent it into the form of a|
berry box complete, excepting the bottom.
The points of bending woro tho parallel
lines cut in the wood, whioh mado tho opera-
tion of shaping tho box nothing but a simple
mechanical movement
The wood bent readily at the partial cuts
and formed tho angles of the box. Making
the bottom, of course, consisted in exactly,
tho samo operation, except that tho strip
used for this portion was not bo long, having only two cuts and three segments. The
middle segment formed, of course, the bottom of the box. and the two at the end extended upward insldo tho frame formed by
tho longer strip.
All but the small core of the log Ib turnod
oft into this long shaving, one-twentieth of
an inch in thickness and nearly 1,000 feet
long, which is folded and broken iuto convenient lengths for handling as fast as it
comes from tho knife.
Tho machinery whioh thus in a fow miu-
utes converts a rough log into a long paperlike sheet of wood, ls called a rotary veneer-
machine, and ia tho factory are several of |
them of various sizes, tho largest of them
being adapted to tho shaving of logs ton
feot eight inches in length. Tho tbin sheets
of wood, as fast as they are taken from the
machine, are placed upon a long table near
at hand and pushed undor a knife cperated
by steam-power, whioh outs tho wood Iuto
narrow strips, lengthwise, and of the proper J
width for the sides and bottom of a berry-
box. Tho knifo whtch cuts tho long shavings crosswise of course outs lengthwise of
tho grain. Tho narrow strips, as fast as
they are out, aro taken away by boys and
carried on an elevator to the second floor of
tho building, whoro a number of boys and
girls rapidly bind tbem Into box form. The
last step in the manufacture, which is done
by girls, Ib tho fastening of the bottom and
side srtips together. This is done by a peculiar-looking machine called a stapler, but
whioh might vory properly be called a wire
sowing-machine. Tho girl operator has simply to turn tbe Bide of the box to bo fastened ovor a little plate, press her foot upon
a pedal, and the small wiro, whioh Is fed
from a oylinder, passes through the two
strlpB, and Is clinched on tho other sido.
The work ls dono very rapidly, and an im*
mouse numbor of boxes can bo turned out!
in a day. .
ORIGIN OF NEWSPAPERS.
The Pioneer Journals of Great Britain and
the Viilted States.
From the flrst day of tho meeting of tho
Long Parliament may bo dated the beginning of journalism, writes W. A. Eugardo
in tho Inland Printer. The earliest English!
newspaper that has been discovered is in
quarto pamphlet of a fow leaves, comprehending a summary of parliamentary proceedings from an ontiro year. It is entitled,
"Tho Diurnal Occurrence, or Dolly Proceedings of Both Houses, in Their Great and.
Happy Parliament, from tho 3d of Novem*|
bor, 1040, to 3d of November, 1041." More
than ono bundred newspapers, with dlfforont titles, appear to have boon published
botween this date and the death of tho King,
and upwards of eighty others botween this
ovent and the Restoration. Occasionally!
papers were published after tho civil war
begiui.limited to local or special occurrences,
as "NewB from Hull," ,lTrutbB from York,"
"Tidings from Ireland." The more regular
newspapers wore published weekly at first,
then twice and throe times a weok. The]
impatience of the poople soon lied to tho
publication of daily papers, and Spalding;
tho Aberdeen annalist, mentions tbat In
December, 166!), ''daily newspapers camoj
from London, callod Diurnal Occurrences, declaring what ls dono in Parliament." In
tho Scottish campaign of 1060 tho nrmy ot
Charles, and that ot Oliver Cromwell, eaeh
carried its printer along with it to report
progress, and, of courso, to exaggerate succoss. It Is from this circumstance that the
first introduction of newspapers into Scotland has been attributed to Oliver Cromwell.
Whon wo look ovor tho United States and
contemplate the vast number of newspapers
and periodicals, dally, weekly and monthly,
and some of them two or throo times a day.
About six years ago, when Mr. Maxim began his experiments in automatic gunnery,
ho mado certain alterations in u Alui'liui-
Henry rifle so that when it wns fired Uio
recoil opened tho breech by dropping the
bloclt in tho ordinary way, tlio block remaining down'until another cartridge was
placed in position, whon tho brooch automatically closed and tho trigger could bc
again pulled.
• The gun lately triod is merely au application of this system on a largo scale. It has
tbo appearance of the quick firing thrce-
pouudcr, is mounted on a cone in tho samo
manner and is trained by a crutch on wliich
tho shoulder of«tho gunner rests. When
tho gun is loaded and tho trigger is pulled
the barrel of tho gun recoils a distance of
four inches, tho breech remaining closed
during tho recoil. Whon, however, the barrel returns to tho firing position tho broach
block ls thrown downward, tho hammer is
cocked and tho ompty cartridge Is ejected,
tho breech block remaining down until another cartridge Is introduced. Tho act or
placing tho cartridge iu tho chamber liberates the blook, which rises instantly, closing tho breech, and tho gun can be fired
again.
After firing tho gun in tho way described
tho trigger was fixed in tho pulled position,
a cartridge was fired and Us empty shell
ejected. On introducing another oai'lridgo
it was fired in the samo way without the intervention of tlie trigger, aud so on with nn
indefinite numbor of cartridges, tho gun
doing all tho work oxcopt that of placing llio
cartridges iu tho chamber.. This gun weighs
no moro than the ordinary quick-firing gun
of tho same caliber; tho strain ou the
mounting'lB loss, enabling it to bo fired
from a light torpedo boat without dumdgo
to tbe deck, and tho rapidity of tho fire is
increased, with only one-half tho usual gun
dotaebmont te work it.
CRUELTY OF PEDDLERS,
An Indignant   Housewife   Emphatically
Dcinnuds Protection.
Said an avonue housekeeper to the Chica-
goJournal's sidewalk stroller lately; "A
society is needed for the protection of
housewives and houso girls from the cruelties of book agents, peddlers, canvassers,
circular distributors, beggars, bums and
beats generally." Asking bor to relate her
experiences, Bho said: "Well, It Is a fact
that one of the most wooiisomo things about
housekeeping on a nice avenuo and iu a
nice houso Is tho constant ringing of tho
frontdoor boll by tho class of people whom
I havo mentioned, and who I think hove no
more business to ring it than thoy havo to
fire a gun at the house. In my house tho
calls sometimes average twenty a day, and
Wbat does It luvolvot I'll tell you. From
tho kitchen in tho back basement, oho hundred feet away, my girl has to climb a
flight of stairs, go through a short hall, n
dining-room, a library, a middle parlor nnd
a long boll to reach tho front door, thoro to
be confronted and detained throo minutes
at least with a conversation about liko
this: "Is tho mistress inl" "Yes."
"Canlsoo herl" "What business!" "I
must seo her myself." "But sho wfll
not seo you, I think." " Go ask hor to come
hore," etc., etc. Sometimes I am roused
from sloop, or sewing, or looking totho
children, or entertaining frionds, only
to go to the front door and sweetly smilo
and refuse and waive away tho intruder—
one or another of tho class mentioned, fto
I figuro for my girl—extra walking por day,
nearly half a miio; loss of time, ovor ouo

Mayor Townsend callod at Tuk Columiiian office this morning and requested us to convey to the ratepayers
who voted for him yestorday, his
heartfelt thanks. He says ho is quite
satisfied with tho results of yosterdny's
election so far na ho is personally concerned, ns it relieves him of troubles
and responsibilities that even a good
Inrgo salary fails to compensato for.
Mr. Townsend takes his defeat with
good grace, and iu a manly way, and
is by no means discomlited by his retirement. He will continue to interest
himself with all affairs of importance
relating to tho city, and will identify
himsolf with all progressive movements in tho futuro as ho has dono in
tho past.

bravely in tho breeze, but at tho reduced prico of §75. Messrs. Davie &
Budwell, of Victoria, instructed by
Mr. Ourrie, have offered to compromise tho flag loan fur §75, half the
former demand, which must bo paid
immediately or a suit will bo entered
ngninst tho city. The* council, somo
time ago, offered Mr. Gome §40 for
tho wear and tear of tho box that enclosed the Hags, but this he refused,
demanding tho full amount at tirat
claimed. At the couucil meeting Inst
night it was dcoidod to allow Mr.
Gorrie to pursue any courso ho wished;
in regard Lo the mattor, nnd it wns
thoroughly understood that the city
would not allow anything in the Bhape
of browbeating to forco it surrender.

The Vancouver elections resulted
yestorday ns was generally expected—
Mayor Opponhoimer was re-elected,
wilh a majority of the aldermen as his
supporters. Tho fight was tho most
bitter that hns ovor occurred in tho
terminal city, nud every inllueneu tliut
could be brought to benr, ono way or

Used to its fullest. Tho defeat of tho
ticket favored by the New-Advertiser, ono of wluoh was the editor of
that journal, was overwhelming, and
cannot be attributed to anything but
the popularity of the opposing ticket,
Following are tho results: Mayor, D.
Opponhoimer, elected by 250 majority.

Bottled Enthusiasm.
Beforo the returns were all received
at the city hall last night quite a large
audionco had gathered to liston to Ihe
remarks of the newly elected aldermen,
but the crowd dwindled rapidly away
after 0:30 o'olock, a good warm meal
being apparently of moro pleasure and
importatico than tho spoech of an al-
derman-alect. At seven o'olock tho
mayor and aldermen-elect had all takon
their departure, and when Mr.Rob3oti
did make tho official announcement,
less than a dozon ratepayers were present to hear tho "joyful news." Consequently there.was no speech mak ing,
no enthusiasm, and, afterwards, a conspicuous lack of "red paint" round
town, all the fresco work and kalan-
mlning being done in private, or not
at all. Tho damp'and disagreeable
weather had probably a chilling effect
on tho choery ratepayers, and tho
bottled up enthusiasm will be liable to
nnd vent on some future important occaaion.
Declines to Trite Steal* Plaeo.
Tickets arc selling well for the exhibition and concert to-morrow evening
at tho opera houso. Tho moriti of
tho entertainment have already been
pointed out in those columns, and ib
only remains to be said that all who
attend the concert to-morrow evening
will discover that Westminster dots
not havo to depend altogether upon
outside talent for a good entertainment; and nil who believo in giving
home.-ta.ont a fair trial will ho there.
Tho work on the horizontal bar is not

A Terror to Evil llorrs.
The sentences passed upon Foo
Singand Scalcnyesterday will undoubtedly bo a source of satisfaction to all
law abiding citizens, nud mako tho
petty membors of the criminal class
shudder. But those aontunces are
light compared with what will bo
dealt put to tho next ollondor. .fudge
Bolo hinted at fourteen years in the
penitentiary for some of fh'o sneak
thieving fraternity, and tlioro is littlo
doubt that a worse plnoo thnu Westminster for llicm does not exist. In
his remarks on tho Scalcn case, his
honor said tho prisoner's criuio was
not characterized by tho ferocity of tho
burglar, and luckily so for the prisoner, as had it been su proved, his honor
would havo sentenced him to fifteen
yeara at hard labor. It was intolerable, said hia honor, thnt people daro
not leavo their doors unlocked without tho fear of como mean, pitiful,
sneaking thief coming along and stealing their goods. If he found tho crimo
increasing he wuuld increase the sentence. It will be very much to the
interest of thoso who nro inclined to
ovil ways to remembor theso things
and take timely warning. With tho
law dealt out in such doses Now
Westminster cannot fail to become n
notoriously unhealthy place for tho
practico of crimo of every land
Tiic Cautious Witness.
No man knows tho hour that he may
be called into a court of justice to give
evidence, and it ia woll to cite a happily rather unusual case that occurred
yesterday during tho heaving of tho
robbery with violence case, before
Judgo Bolo. A witness from Ladner's
Lauding exasperated ihu crown prosecutor and the judgo by an extraordinary display of caution; he was suro
of nothing and would swear to nothing;
ho thought ho saw n man, but wouldn't
swear tp it; ho thought lie remembered
u ceitain day, but would not swear to
that. After about twenty minutes of
this useless fencing ho stated that he
was positive—ho actually startled the
court by such positivism—that the man
iti the dock wns not tho man ho saw
with a gun in his hand tbat Sunday.
This was moro tlian Judge Bolo could
bear and he wheeled round indignantly
and demanded how witness dared to
have the audacity to come inlo a court
of justice nnd toll such things. His
honor said ho had a good mind to commit him to jail, aud finally told the
witnoss to get out of the box and bo
ashamed nf himsolf. On account of
the disgraceful manner in which tho
witness gavo his evidence, his expenses
woro disallowed by tho court' This
ought to servo as a warning to all
others who iinagino they aro smart boeauso thoy waste tiio timo of tho court
by senseless equivocations.
The Galley Slave.
Thoro was a thin house last night in
the opera house, and tho gallery predominated. Tho gallery also behaved
itself in a way that waa disgraceful,
and by its stupid brawling and whistling spoiled the play for those who had
paid their monoy tu listen. The gnl-
lery hung its large foot and heavy shoos
over tho front railing and stuck its
cap on the back of its hoad and tyrannized tho wholo houso. Tho polico in
most other cities havo a funny way of
jumping right into the middle of suoh
n howling mass and taking a grip of
thb noisiest one* by tho back of the
neck and hauling thom liko baleB of
hay down to tho front entrance whero
a tremendous kick on tho tail of tho
coat knocks all the wild enthusiasm
out of the howling gallery "tough."
Thu play was good and the noting
strung. Barney Campbell's "Galley
Slave" is a favorite with eastern audi*
uncos, and with tho respectable pnrt
of last (..gilt's nudienco was well received. Tho play renlly deserved a
much better houso than it had. Mr.
Kccuu announced totho audience that
the company would play "Damson awt
PytMos" to-night, tho loading rolo of
Damon boing t.kon by an actor who
has played thnt oharactor all over tho
United States, nnd who, Mr. Koonc
snid, ii tho boat actor that haa played
in tho north west. A representation
of tho line old piny Damon and Pythias,
which was never played in Wostminstor
or hi fact tho province, ought to attract
a humpor house.

A CAM.
To the Ratepayers ofNeto Westminster:
Now that tho excitement of electoral
strife is past, permit me to tender my
most sincero thanks to tho friends who
have, during tho past week, showered
upon mo expressions of confidence and
esteem, proving the genuineness of the
samo by returning me at tho head of the
poll for No. 2 Ward. Whether I shall
fit the place or Uot, the next twelve
months alone can tell. Be this as it
may, I cau assure my friends and fellow
citizens that they hnvo elected one wbo
will dischnrgo tho duties of tho position
to the best of his ability in nn honest,
earnest and intelligent manner, and that
fear of his fellow-man enters not iuto his
composition. I am entirely free to pro*
mote the interests of tho city as u whole,
and of the wost end in particular.
With reference to the brilliant and
veracious Church street scribe, his distinguished noticti lind at first a maddening effeot, from which I quickly recovered with a laugli—a laugh in which all
who know me joined-, it has not oven yet
lost its piquancy, lt haB boen my intention to relievo that scribe's harrowing
anxiety for a denial as soon oa the contest wus over, but ho has forestalled mo
by coming out with a retraction this
morning, He throws up tho snonge and
somo bile, nud should ba feeling better
by thia time, I gather from his re-
marks that I may expect to have at least
ono fair-minded critic during the coming
year. Be it so; I accept tho situation.
Ihavo been a bettor friend of our new
morning paper during its short existence
tlian to Tub Columbiah during the past
five years, aud now the one acts tbe serpent and the other heaps coals of fire on
my head. Such ia lifo,
