AN IMPORTANT  DECISION.
Washington, Doc. 5.—Commissioner Gruff, of the general land office,
litis rendered a decision in tbe case of
John Fleet, James Delaney and John
Algyer va Northern Pacifio Railroad
Company, involving a qunrter si-ctioii
said to he worth $1,000,000 near Ta-
cdmii, Wash, The tract is within the
city limits of the Northern Pacifio
grant. Fleet settled upon tho land
under the preemption laws in the
spring of 18G0. In 1870 Fleet left
tho lnnd. In 1883 Algyer moved upon it. Delaney is the present occupant.
The commissioner's decision re-instates
Fleet on his rights under aot of March
3,1887, holding that his abandonment was involuntary and allows him
to complete his entry. The commissioner ulso holds that neither Algyer
nor Delaney can havo any claim to the
laud, for unless Fleet is entitled to it,
it must revert to the railroad company
undor its grant.

LARGE UOTKI. ON FIRE.
Pittsburg, Ph., Dec. 5.—Tlm Mo
nonguliela Houbc, tho largest hotel
hero, located on the corner of Smith-
tleld and Water streets, is on Ure, the
(lames going up the elevator shaft, and
it is feared tho entire building will be
consumed. At 2:45 p. m. the entire
Water streot front of the hotel was iu
flumes, from the fourth storv to the
roof, and pntt of the rear end of the
building is also burning rapidly. The
building, is insured for $160,030, and
personal property for $32,00. It is
now believed that the firo is under
control.
later—The hotel is 10 densely filled
with smoke that it is not known whether all tho guests and employees have
got safely out Tho fire is said to have
originated in a room at the front of
the elevator. The porter attempted
to extinguish the flames with a bsbcock
and tho fire gained considerable headway beforo the department was called
out. A general alarm has beeu turned
on. It is certain the damage will ba
very heavy, if indeed the building is
uot totally deitroyed, which at this
writing appears very probable. At
12:25 o'olook the flames had broken
through tho rear of the hotel, and are
now burning furiously in the buildings
behind. It is thought that no lives arc
lost.

oue of an entirely different oharactor
from that on which ho waa now held
by tho Cayuga county authorities.
"Hope," Baid the judge in conclusion,
"I pronounce you freo, and I will givo
you forty hours in wliich to get out of
the state." In tno minutes Hope was

HANDSOME HARRY HANGED.
New Yoek, Dec. 6.-—"Handsome
Harry" Carlton, murderer of Police-
mau Brennan, was hanged in thu
Toombs yard this morning at 7.29
o'olook. His neck wns broken'and he
he did not struggle. The execution in
the scenes preceding and immediately attending it was more
than usually lucking in sensational incidents. The prisoner was
to have been awakened at four this
morning, but was sleeping soundly at
that hour. It was deoided to let him
rest till 5 o'clock, and at that time he
was aroused. He dressed himself,
taking special pains with his necktie
and hair, and finally selected articles
for breakfast, to be ready at six. Afterwards he attended mass in the prison chapel, remaining some time in conversation with tho priest nnd prison
officials. He did not flinch on tho
way from the cell to the scaffold, nor
while tho preparations were being
made by the haugmtm on tho scaffold.
There was no hitch in any part of the
execution, or any scene at the last,
Tho body remained hanging about ten
minutes, when the physician pronounced Carlton dead. Carlton mis
the last New York murderer to dio on
the gallows. The law for execution by
electrio ty now comes into for :e. His
crime was the murder of Policeman
Brennan on the night of Oct. 28,1888.
TUB FOLYCAMIST.
Salt Lake City, Dec. 3.—Judge
Anderson to day delivered a decision
in the matter of the application of the
Mormons who have tiken the endowment house oath for admission to citizenship. The decision reviews the
testimony at length and denies tho application. In the decision Judge Anderson states the ground of his opposition to the admission of the applicant? to citizenship to be that the
Mormon church b, and always has
been, a treasonable organization in its
teachings and practices; that it is hostile to the government of the United
Stites; disobedient to its laws and
seeking its overthrow; thnt the oath
aiimimterrd to its members tn the endowment liouse binds them, under a
penalty of death, to implicit obedience
in all things, temporal as well as
spiritual, to the priesthood, and to
avenge the death of the prophets,
Joseph and Hiram Smith, upon the
government and people of the United
Statos. The judge reviewed at length
the ovidence submitted by the government regarding the endowment house
ceremonies and teachings of the church.

THE   LIBERAL CONFERENCE.
London, Duo. 4.—The tory press
and tory politicians are indulging in
sneers at the liberal federation's con-
ference at Manchester on the general
principle tbat the aots of political opponents are insignificant aa compared
with any conservative movement, and
are especially jubilant over the omission of Mr. Gladstone to reveal his
home rule soheine whieh they pretend
they expected he would do. This
omission is interpreted by the tories as
an admission of weakness and by some
is boldly characterized as an exhibition
of cowardice, though a similar example
of prudence on the part of one of the
tory leaders is invariably alluded to as
a splendid stroke of statesmanship.
The liberals on the other hand are
thoroughly satisfied with the results of
the conference, and especially rejoice
that Mr. Gladstone refuied to ihow his
hand to opponents whose past record
affords abundant proof of their readiness to resort to any ettreme to lecure
nu advantage even at the expenae of
the country's welfare and progress.

ment of the mult nothing wu mentioned about judgea, rulea or anything
whioh goes to make artiolea of agreemont binding, and putt certain re-

ting up of the cash, »100 a aide. Oa*
noes were procured, however, and t
raw itarted, MoLean uilng * lingle-
bladod paddle, Paine > double-bladod
one. Thia about matched the men, aa
McLean ia certainly one of the belt In
a oanoe on tho Pacifio coast, and canoeing is hardly Paine'a atyle. Capt Dodd
had been mutually selected ae referee
ond judge, but was not favored with a
boat to follow up tbe racen. The men
got away well together, Paine leading
slightly until past the railway bridge,
when it became an even thing, but the
MoLean men backed their man at odda
to win the race. On the ran home
MoLean led about two lengths, although Paine was pressing him badly.
As soon ns the men landed Paine at
onco entered a protcat on the grounds
uf ii foul. At first the McLean mon
would not listen tu thi., as they said
there wai uo rules governing canoo racing. Cpt. Dodd reserved his deciaion,
and a meeting botween the principala
and baekera with the jndge waa held
aud the dispute discuued fairly. It
waaahown that fault was on both aides,
and the fact that no regular article,
wen drawn up waa taken by Capt
Dodd to be .uffioient ground, upon
whioh to declare tht race a draw,
■take, to be taken down and all Ute
off.. Thia was t Muiibl. and Utt it-
eiaiou under the circumitancee, and
wai accepted by the principal and
backers with a good grace. McLean i.
.till willing to pull a skiff race and
Paine will oblige him in a ihort time.
Psine asys that MoLean Ia a wonderful
stayer, while MoLean ia alio ready to
admit tbat Paine ia no mean antagonist. A good skiff raco nnder well
drawn up artiolea between thne two

Anyone who attended the sossi >ui

by a new ono. A brick exteuati'ii liaa
been a*ado to the baok of tiie nt .in

ent and comfortable loom fur Mr.
Speaker anil nnother for <-m-mittee
work. The spectatora' galle- 'ew n ve
been extended and furnii ied w-th
more comfortable seats, while tbe press
gallenei are better lighted tbau they
were before. The antiqmted fireplaces on the floor uf the houso hnve
disappeared, and the speaker's throne,
thoroughly renovated, haa bean pl-iced
about twelvo feet further back. The
throne and dais, in the new order of
things, is backed by a blind i1 roll, with
massive bronze pillars un either .Ue,
and flanked by open arches, admitting
to an air passage, whioh separates the
main building From the committee aud
speakor's rooms.
A great part of the old woodwork
hu disappeared, and the very objectionable flat roof and skylight of early
daya haa gone u well. The new roof
ia vaulted and handsomely frescued,
the patterna being moat artiatto and the
colors brilliant and harmonious. The
vaulted ceiling, where it merges into
the glass roof, ia heavily gold corniced,
while gold bands relieve the frescoing
wherever a pleasing effect can thereby bo produced. The walla are alio
handsomely frescoed, both above aud
below the galleries, while the woodwork is finished iu oak and very carefully grained.
Modern windows make the ventilation as well aa the lighting batter than
formerly, while the hot water pipei
have been arranged to produce the
most comfortable effect when heat ia
required. New gas fixtures have been
introduced, the pillars supporting the
galleries have been painted in imitation of blaok veined marble, aud the
desks of all tbe members have been
painted and polished in imitation ebony with trimminga of gold. The carpets and hangings about Mr. Speaker'!

CLAYTON SEWS.
(From our own Correspondent.)
Clayton, Deo. 3.—Farmers around
here are looking forward to the comple
tlon of the Surrey dyke, which will enable them to cultivate a large traot of
prairie land, aecond to none In the province. Thero has lately been a large demand for thia class of land, and daring
the last week two quarter-sections away
baok off tho road were nid for 94,000,
and two other quarter sections, better
situated, fetched botween $3,000 and
14,000 each,
The postal authorities have lately given us a post offico, in chargo of Mr. John
Georgo, on the Yale road. Mr. George
haa also opened a store whioh ho intends
to keep well-stocked with groceries, etc,
Mr, G. W, Cann has let a contract for
building a very comfortable houie on hll
ranch, which ho expects will bo completed about tho lat of January. Mr.
Cann at present stylos himself a bachelor,
bnt if roport is true he will loon have to
disown that distinguished title.
A requisition for a school house In
Clayton haa recently been forwarded to
tho authorities, and I understand the
matter has recoivod their favorable consideration.
All tho farmen in thla section of the
country appear to be thoroughly disgusted with tho moans of communication
between Brownsville and the otty. A
while back two of them were unable to
return across tho river between 4 in the
evening and 10 o'elook on the next morn,
big, which oompelled them to stay in
town all night, and one of them had to
pay stabling for a couple of ox-teams
which he had on the other side. A few
days previously one of the wheels ot a
loaded wagon broke right through the
rotten deck of the K. do K., and it wu a
wonder the whole wagon and load did
not go right through.

Tnn mayoralty contest in this
city is giving rise to developments,
somo of which hare a qniet touch of
amusement gently kalsomining their
angularity, aB it were. Mayor
Townsend was first in the Held, as
everyone knows, stating .by a curu
in this paper as early as tko 23rd
ult, that "if it is the wish of tho
ratepayers, I will consent to be
nominated, and, if elected, I pledge
raypolf to continue to work to the
best of my ability for tlie good of
the oity." A few days before nomination tho mayor published another
card in this paper, as follows : "The
question is asked : 'What about
sala 7 for mayor V In reply, J beg
to Bute that the charter empowers
the oouncil to 'pass a by-law' to pay
the at lyor $2,000 per year, and it
was gonerally conceded that should
be done, as the position now takes
the v hole time and attention of
whoever fills the chair. Therefore
[the italics are ours], I -want it distinctly understood that asa candidate
for the position, it is on the condition
that the salary is atiaehd to it, otherwise 1 must bey to withdraw my
name, as I am not rich enough to
give my whole time and services to
the ;ity for nothing." This honest,
outspoken statement did Mayor
Town end credit, because it was
eviroi.tly the sincere, unreserved
exp ettaion of his real sentiments on
"be subject, and it, very properly,
pkc id as an issue before tho rate-
pny i> the question us to whether
the n yor of Westminster should in
defending the .position of his side on
this question lately, stated that the
wealth of Wajes was ajl in favor
of maintaining the church establishment, and a Radical speaker, with
frank cynicism, admitted that a
Welsh Anglican could easily be detected by tho number of sorvants
and carriages he possessed. The
fact is tbat the Welsh people aB a
body—with the exception of tho
squirearchy and tho few—are Wes-
leyan in their religious predilections. They have, therefore, no use
for tho establishment, to whose support it is unfair that they should be
compelled to contribute, and their
evident desire for its removal, will
not, it is to be hoped, remian long
unratified.
The federation was very emphatic
on the question of freo education,
which has long been a "pious opinion" with most Radicals, although until now never embodied in any Liberal programme as far as we are
aware. The matter merely means
tho logical carrying out of the For-
ster Act of 1870 to its legitimate
conclusion. England, as is well
known, is far behind some of the
continental nations upon this question, and it is a hopeful sign that
the Liberal party is solid for the
education of the poor, free of cost.
A further resolution declared strongly against British entanglements in
continental quarrels, and in "this we
detect the spirit which fell foul of
and overthrew Beaconsfield in 1380,
A "brilliant foroign policy" has no
attractions for tho Liberal party,
we aro glad to note, and tho knowledge of this will do much to prevent tho present prime minister
from repeating the tricky und cheap
Jingoism so emphatically condemned
by tho electors nine years ago, Tbe
Liberal party has simply reiterated
its position by declaring, through
tho federation, its emphatic protect
against tho endowment of sectarian
colleges, and we may, therefore look
for strenuous opposition to any
scheme Mr. Balfour may bring forward with the twofold purpose of
enlisting Oatholio sympathy by endowing a Catholic university in Irelnnd, and at the same time putting
off the day when home rule will An-
raand attention. By its resolutions
condemning the buying out of Irish
landlords at the oxpnnse of the British taxpayer, the federation hns
given Lard Salisbury timely notice
to be careful what   he   tries   to du

Attention, Voters!
 „ receive a salary, and ns to Muring the next  session   of   parti.
ch« u.iount of that salary.   It has I ™e,lt.*   Rumour »*■ tha* Mr. J?
been tcated that tbe new councillors
are ;he ones to settle the question
of t'le mayor's salary ; but nothing
eoul 1 javo been more fitting, on such
ui i niortuiit mutter as the proposal
■j pay our mayor a cdnsider-
ihh' -.Uary for tho first time in
" he h:atoy of the city, than thnt
i pi li scite of the ratepayers—who
ire -;!)■! final arbiters in all municipal questions—should have been
uk* it inthe question, and Mayor
Cow land's clear, candid statement
in tlie :ard referred to above furnished jist tho opportunity required.
Mr. IVwnsend stated in effect: "I
hav- had soveral months' experience
in tie mayoralty, and know that I
urn <>■ afford to stand for re-election
forth' honors. Only on condition
of b ii.g assured §2,000 salary will
1 co ibt'nt to fulfil the arduous duties
of the office for another year. It
is nuw for the ratepayers to decide.
If tl ej elect me, after this declarant! i shall be justified in domnnd-
inj* r..<n the new council $2,000 as
: ila y, and they cannot in justice
i-ffe> n-) less." This is plain enough,
nnd this was the issue on which Mr.
Brown was brought out, and on
whii la he accepted nomination.
And ti.ese facts havo been clearly
under*tood from the first—together
with ti-o fact that Mr. Brown' con-
Hidei it: $1,000, neither more nor less,
to bt- ii fair salary for the mayor to
begin with—notwithstanding the
attempts being made in certain quarters to confuse and misrepresent
mat'en, Mr, Brown publishes a
card oi: another page which consistently »wd clearly states hia position
in tho contest from the start.
If M lyor Townsend's unequivocal expression on the salary issue, in
the tirht place, was commendable,
as all w ill agree it was, his subsequent, nhufflingon the question, if we
may be pardoned the word, is no
less reprehensible, and is besides unworthy of tho mayor. Mr. Townsond, in a communication elsewhere
{also published in Truth this morning) wines as near eating  his   for-
1 four hus a most elaborate scheme of
this sort cut and dried in his pigeon
holes. It bad better remain there,
for if produced it will fail to conciliate the Nationalists, who will lipar
of nothing of the sort until homo
rule is passed, and at the same time
will timet with the iinopnipromising
criticism of Mr. (jtlucUtbiifl, tlie
greatest English finauuier of tho
century.
With the news of theso resolutions comes the intelligence that Mr.
Parnell has mysteriously disappeared, and that his absence is .causing grave anxiety to his friends. It
is well to note, first, that this news
is given to the world by the St.
James' Gazette, an ultra-Tory print
of the venomous ordor. Mr. Parnell hus a habit of disappearing occasionally, no ono knows whither,
but up to now he has always turned
up again, not always, however, at
the convenience of Ins oppononts.
It is remarkably characteristic of
tho frish leader that fow, oven of
his intimate political friends, know
anything of his private life; He is
a man who, so far as is known, has
no confidants. His absence from
political haunts may of course, be
alarming, but not necessarily so, for
every now and again he makes a
point of keeping out of the way,
and this fact is well known to most
people who interest tnemselves in
British politics. This littlo eccen
tricity of Mr. Parnell is useful, us
periodically, when the house is not
sitting, or London is tired of discussing tho latest play, novel and
fashion, tho newspapers tempt the
jaded mental uppetites of thoir
readers by tho startling announcement that again Mr, Parnell has
disappeared. We have a firm be-
blief that tho Irish leader will "bob
up serenely" in due course, and, wo
trust, with renewed energy to fight
the great battle of home rule for
Ireland.

A Baltimore anarchist says he
lias invented a sort  of percussion
mer words in tlio mayoralty matter   cap no larger  than a   3-cent piece,
as it is possible to do, and hopelessly
confuses and confounds any issuo
tliat might havo been beforo the publio. What does tho mayor expect
tho ratepayers to think of such un-
dignilicd tergiversation, such a
weakly renunciation of former  em-
5Intimity expressed convictions)
Ihe only reasonable course that we
can perceive to bo open for the electors is to vote upon the issue as at
first placed beforo them, and thuB
practically settle the question as to
whether tho mayor's salary for the
ensuing year shall be $2,000 or
81,000.
Thf.   Federation of Liberal   Associations of Groat Britain has been
in session this week at Manchester,
and at its meetings resolutions whioh
will go far in moulding, the policy
of the  next administration  wero
ngreedto. Homerule.ofcourse.takes
the premier position, but, in  addition tothe main plank of the  Liberal platform, definito and progressive legislation was declared necessary in other directions.   The disestablishment   of   the    Anglican
Ohuroh in  Wales was declared a
matter of urgency, and no   wonder.
It says much for the density of the
English Tory  mind, that snch an
anomaly aa this ii should  receive
the hearty support of the party.
But, nfter all, it is simply a repetition of the  churoh  establishment
whioh, when filled with the new explosive, textralite, and scattered on
tho sidewalk, will blow up every
man who trends on one. It lias
never occurred to any anarchist to
invent a new kind of working tool
or a now brand of soap.
A convention of American tramps
was held in the Pennsylvania coal
regions the other day. Over 610
"invitations" were issued, but the
"delegates" in attendance numbered
only 38. Each was requested to
report his name, his last place of
residence, and his former oooupa-
taion, and one, we are sorry to say,
registered himself as an iron-worker
from Toronto. The chairman in addressing the convention, which as
sembled in a deserted coal breaker,
said that he was sure that the gathering was a representative one, and
that he was glad to see "so many
bright facts" before him. It is absolutely neoessary to state, in explanation of the latter remark, that
no delegate was admitted until lie
had washed himself in a neighboring oreek. The convention discussed various' matters of interest to
the fraternity, passed resolutions,
had luncheon, and adjourned until
May next. It will be gratifying to
the genenl publio to learn that
twelve of the delegates voted in
favor of the proposition that tho
tramp was himself responsible for
his condition,—if ml
scandid in Ireland, whioh was swept
away by Mr, Gladstone.   A  politi-1 a. j.„ „_,„    „,   ,    ,  „

that 1 should humor the fellow, fall into tlie

"You look the ssme-we see no ohango,"

It is reported that an on tar prising
Ontario man will shortly establish a

Thi' Civic Elections.
All the interest in tho civic elections
has narrowed down to tho candidates
for wards two and three. The aspirants to aldermanio honors aro prosecuting thoir canvass in a friendly manner,
but are leaving no stono unturned, to
secure a majority of votes. Ward three
will probably bo the scene of the hardest fight, nnd majorities are not expected to be largo in any case. Neither
of the candidates fur the civic chair
is making a personal canvass.
Mr. Punch WitlidraMB.
Mr. Jns. Punch, the present reeve
of Surrey, who was nominated on
Monday for ward two m this city,
called to-day and authorized The
Columbian to announce that ho had
withdrawn from tho contest. Mr.
Punch assigns as his reason that throe
guod men besides himself are in nomination, and he can not conveniently
givo tho necessary time for tliu position, fie also sfcitea that the nomination was not of hiB own seeking in
the lirst plaoe.

Farewell Lecture.
Mrs. Moore'a farewell lecture nt tm>
opera house last uight proved a great
attraction, und tho building was almost ns closely packed as on Tuesday evoning, Tho subject, "Bum-
selling and religion," was ably handled,
and her appeals to the audience against
tho uso of intoxicants, and tho ueces
sity of a lively crusado againBt the
liquor traffic, were very effective indeed. On the whole Mrs. Moore 1ms
made a decided hit in Westminster,
and her visit has dime much good.
As usual, n large number ot peoplo
were persuaded to sign tho pledgo,
the number of signers being much
greater last uight than at the two previous meetings.

A Vflly Celestial.
All Foo faced the bench tliis morning
in the polico court and denied thnt he
h.-.d kept a retail Btore in Front tu.
without a license. Ho produced nuother Chinaman, who, according to Foo
was the man who had committed the
uffonce. Tho caso was not unmixed
with tho ludicrous, and when the
Chineso vocabulary was in full blaBt it
was hard to restrain a smile, His honor thought it best to remand tlio case
until Monday next. Ah Fou is noted
as one of the must prominent highbinders in thia country and all the
other Chinamen stand in considerable
awe of him. He does nut occupy a
very flattering pusitiou on the books of
tho police department, and thoy are in
tho habit of keeping a keen eyo on Iub
niovomonta.
A Thriving Industry.
The Chilli wuck cheese factory, of
which Mr. A. C, Wells is tho proprietor, and which is tho only establishment of tho kind in the province, has
just closed down Bftor a moat aiicces*-
ful season's'Work, During tho period
tho factory waa in operation 20,000
pounds wore manufactured, nil of
which has heen disposed of nt a most
satisfactory figuro, netting a handsome
profit to Hir. Wells. Tho cheeso has
all boen sold uf in the province
fur Immo consumption, and it is it)
great fuvor wherever it has been used,
its quality being acknowledged as equal
t.i the imported lines of tho Ontario
and Quebeo article. Tho factory will
bo run to the fullest extent next sea-
boii, and it is expected tho output will
bo considerably greater than this year.
An Excellent Appointment.
The appointment of Captain J, A,
Robinson to the command of tho government steamer Samson, vice Capt.
Qrant, deceaied, hu given tho greatest
satisfaction throughout the city. Capt.
Robinson is one of the moat skilful and
experienced navigators on the British
Columbia const, haa sailed these waters
for many years, and is thoroughly
adapted and qualified for his new duties. Last year Capt, Robinson mado
a Btudy of tho Sandheads channel,
and advanced aome excellent plans for
deepening the same by means of huge
drags or marine harrows. It is to ho
hoped ho maybo permitted to givo
thii lyatem a test, for it ia admitted
by oxperieneed men to be a very practical idea, And well worthy of a trial.
Capt. Robinaon haa the beat interests
of Westminster at heart, and his appointment cannot but reiult favorably

The Murrey Election*.
Tho municipality of Surrey will scon
be agitated over tho election of reeve
and councillors for the ensuing year.
Tho uomitiatiuus take place the first
Monday in January and tho elections
follow a week later, lt is almoat definitely settled that Reeve Punch will
not ask further municipal honors, it
being necessary that he Bhould devote
the whole of his time to private business matters, lt ia understood that a
requisition is at present being circulated through the municipality, asking
Mr, H. T. Thrift to accopt tho nomination for reeve, Tho choice is excellent, for no man in Surrey has so
genoral a knowledge of municipal
matters aa he, and no man better
knows tho public requirements. Mr.
Thrift has been clerk of the council for
fivo years, which has given him an insight into municipal businesa and an
experience in theso matters thnt cannot but be of great benelit and assistance to tho cuuncil ahould ho be elected to the reeveship. Ho has been
a resident of Surrey fur seven years,
and during that time has moved in all
matters tending to forward tho inter-
eats of tho municipality. The electors
of Surrey cannot make a mistake in
returning Mr. Thrift for reeve, if lie
cfiusonts to tho nomination.
Regretted by All.
It was learned with tbo deepest regret
yesterday afternoon thut Ctptain C.
M. McNiughten had broatht'd his last,
nft-rr a long aud lingering illness extending onu- two years. Tho condition of tho health of tho deceased for
the past fow months was extremely
frail, uud thi end was expected long
boforo it came. Captain Charles M.
McNaughten was born at Sidney, Cape
Breton, in 1855 and in 1878 came to
British Culumbia. After residing a
year in Victoria ho cume tu New WestminBter and made it hit borne, having
resided here since 1870. By trade
Capt. McNaughten was a jeweller and
waiohm iker and wub iu buaineas on
Columbia st, for several years. He
had the truo military instinct, and was a
line aoldier and oflicer He took a
course of gunnery instruction nt Victoria, at the school of nunnery, and
passed with high honors. At the retirement uf -fudge Pule from the captaincy of No. 1. Battery B. C. G. A.,
Captain (then lieutenant) McNaughten succoodod to the command whioh
ho held till his death. With, hie command Captain McNaughten was held
in tho highest eatoein, mid under his
care tho battery arrived at a vory
creditable stale of pr. iicicttcy. He
leaves r. wifo and throe children to
mourn hislo'-s. Captain McNaughten
has alao a brother living in thu city, who
camo up from Victoria on learning tho
seriousness uf his brother's illness.
The deceased will be buried to-morrow with military honors. The funeral cortege will leave tho houso at two
o'clock antl proceed to tho Baptist
church and aftor service there, go to
Sapperton cemetery.

CORRESPONDENCE.
SprrudliiK Tlioumrlvcn.
Editor Columbian—Sir:—I happened
to stumble on the Truth this morning,
and curiosity urged mo to open it, and
lo and behold 1 and to bo sure I thu rival
candidates for mayor are just spreading
themselves in the columns of that
Quixotic sheet. They are making all
manner of excuses for begginc tho salary
whicli tbey wish to bo added to the
weighty honors they expect to reap whon
they, or either of thom, como to be Invested with tho "rod cap," Tlielr talk
in Truth reminds mo very much of tho
girl, when hor lover seemed to bo rather
shy, who whispered in his oar in alow but
assuring tone, "1W mo, John, an' I'll
no be if! tno poo'," It ia a great pity
that tho municipal constitution would
not permit the twain to be elevated aide
by sido in the civio chair. They could
then divide both tho honors and the sal-
ary—half a loaf would bo bettor than no
bread, Civis.
Mr. Townsend Explain*.
Editor Columbian—Sir:—I wish to
utate that thore waa a misunderstanding
as regards iny signing Mr. Brown's nomination papors, That gentleman thought
I was aware that ho expected a salary,
when really I waa not. Hence my statement. Consequently, if I mado n blunder I did it unknowingly; and I liavo
seen Mr, Brown and Alderman Reid, togothor with other gontlomon, to set tho
matter right, and 1 take thla means to do
ao publicly. Tho article in Truth yen-
terday morning, defining tho duties of
mayor, caused mo to look Into tho matter, and I find It is right; and I am not
surprised that, viewing thn dutloa in that
light, Mr. Brown would bo willing to do
tho aamo for $1,000 por annum, If I
thought that that was all that waa required of the mayor, I ahould bo quito
willing to continue doing tho duties for
nothing. But that is not tho case] thoro
ia a great deal moro to do if we wish our
city to grow and prosper. I havo seen
many of my frienda and supporters today, and thoy toll mo I huvo takon a
Children Cryfor Pltcher'sCastorla
false stand on tho question of salary. The
council in session have tbe power to vote
a by-law providing the salary, and they
can make it what they please, or none at
all. Now, I have worked hard during
tho post year, and bave things well in
hand, and I ahould like to aee them carried to a finish, and I think I can do it
better than a new man. Having, therefore, only the city's interest to forward,
I havo decided to withdraw the statement that I would not servo for less tban
£2,000 per annum, 1 will leave tho
matter entirely iu tho hands ot the new
council.   Yours faithfully,
William B. Towksend.

most respectfully tosoiioit youraunport
Tho aalary queaLlou raised by Mayor
Townsend can bo disposed of In a few
words, Ono of my reasons fur rofuMiig,
when lirat Invited to become a candidate,
was that I could not afford tlie expenditure thai the position would entail, and
thU wai removed by tho express assurance of ihose entitled to fineak with authority, Hint it bad been definitely decided to attach n salary of 91000 per uu num to
tin-position, no iimll'T who occupied 11,
I have mado no demands and no hurgnlntt
whatever, oxcept mv arrangement with
Mayor Townsond, Hint. I should go before
lho ratepayers us approving the policy of
tlio council, above slated, and Hint be
should nppenl lo Ihom as Keeking election
only on the understanding Hud. lhe full
salnry allowed by law (#2000 per annum)
should bo paid.
Ah I slated on nomination day, I should
endeavor, If elected, to see that Hie civic
bilHlncfls wna thoroughly sya(omn'lr.eil,
ami that each ollicor nml inomberot Ihu
council did hia appointed work and was
held to his responaihllliy therefor, Tho
mayor Bhould keep himself Informed oa
to the progress of nil municipal business,
but any Interference beyond that with
ollleluls aud eoioiiillti'iH of thn round I
would. In my view, he a grave mistake.
I will not attempt to enter upon any do-
tall of the matters which will como before
the council next year; but I may sny, Hint
such measures as lend lo mako New

plaeo of residence should have our lirst
consideration.
Should yon do mo the honor to elect
me, 1 shall consider myself bound durlnu'
my term of oilice to stand outside of anv
{losslble cliques or parties—lo preserve, its

In the welfare of this ell v, In whleh nil my
