old pirate who, on bis death bed,

$250,000 treasure in Spanish doubloons, the place being a email island in
the Pacifio ocean, three degrees south
of the equator, on the South American
coast. A company was organized during the lato war to look up tho treasure, but failed to start on account

haB now succeded in interesting capitalists from the east sojourning hore,
aud believing his story, they, with
him, yeaterday started fur San Francisco to make necessary preparations
fur tho recovery of the treasure.
AN UNKIND   RUIIGESTION.
London, Dec. O.—The sad accident to Emin Pashu, which elicits-expressions of deep regret on every side,
bus furnished lhe semutiuu mongers
with abundant material wherewith tu
increase their ofieusivcne&s. One of
the theories advanced lo account for
the psBha'a injurien which has obtained
wide circulation, and not a few believers, is that he threw himself from the
balcony with suicidal intent while Buffering from tbe effects of over indulgence in stimulants natural to a man
who had bo long been confined perforce
to a life of total abstinence from the
cheery beverages of civilization.
OTTAWA NOTES.
Ottawa, Dee. 5,- Marked copies of
tho Victoria Times, containing an editorial upholding tho action of tbe customs department relative to the coasting regulations, havo been forwarded
to the minister of customs. The article waa published at a very inopportune moment, and is esloulated to induce the department to continue the
regulations just at a time when tbo
minister, owing to the conciliatory
letter of the board of trade, was disposed to withdraw it.
The minister of murine is considering the advisability of instituting tidal
observations in the gulf and on the At'
lantio coast to determine the force and
nature of the currents.
It is probable that the duty on mining machinery will be removed in
speoial cases where it is clearly shown
that such machinery cannot be manufactured in Canada.
Exports for the first four months of
the current tucal year, $46,816,404;
corresponding period last year, §38,-
620,696; increase, $8,105,708; imports
fur the four months this year, $41,643,-
174; same period last year, $39,055,-
085; increase, $2,587,380. Such, iu
brief, is the grand reeord of Canada's
trade. The quarter's returns were of
a most cheering nature, but with another month addod the outlook is better than ever. The increase in the
exports may be considered extraordinary, the October figures alone showing
an augmentation of $2,700,000. The
following is the statement:
Produce of tho mine $ 550,703
Produce of the fisheries,.  1,67)1,907
Produce of the forest   8,631,109
Animals and their pioduce   4,891,827
Agricultural products   2,818,917
Manufactures      507,5111
Miscellaneous articles..       40.287
Coin and bullion     617,633
Total 8H034AM
The value of mineral products is about
the same us October, '88; the fisheries
show an increase of $600,000; forest,
$8CO,000: animals and their produce,
$620,000; manufactures, $110,000;
agricultural products being about the
same. Tho duty collected on imports
in the respective four months is as
follows: 1880, $6,442,833; 1888,
$8,277,179.
AN INTERESTING   LETTER.
New York, Dec. 4.—The J/*t*aW
will to-morrow print a letter from
Henry M. Stanley, which was handed
to the Herald correspondent at Maui-
wah, November 3. In tho letter Mr.
Stanley sayB that looking back over
wbat haa been accomplished, he sees
no reason for discontent. Over and
above the happy ending of their duties,
they had not been unfortunate in geographical discoveries. "Aruwimi river
ib now known from its source to
Bourne; the great Congo forest, covering as large an area us France and the
Iberian peninsula, oan uow be certified
as an absolute faet; tho Mountains of
the Moon have beeu located, Ruwin-
zori, or "Cloud King," robed in eternal snow, has boen seen and explored,
Mounts Gordon, Bennett, and Mao-
kinnou cones being but giant sentries
warding off the approach to tbe inner
area of "Cloud Kiug"; tbo connection
betweon Albert Edward Nyanza and
Albert Nynuz'i has been discovered,
and the extent of the former lake is
now known for the first time. Rango
after range of mountains have been
traversed, separated by such tracts of
pasture laud as wuuld make American
cowboys wild with envy. Right under
the burning equator wn have fed on
bluckburties and quenched our thirst
with crystal water fresh from snow
beda. Wo nlso havo beon uble to add
nearly 6,000 equaro miles of water to
Victoria Nyansw. Our naturalist wilt
expatiate 011 the new species of animals and birds und plants be lias discovered. It will tako us all wo know
to say what new stores of knowledge
havo been gathered from unexpected
discoveries. This certainly has been
tho most extraordinary expedition I
hnvo ever led into Africa. A veritable
divinity seems to have hodpod ua while
we journeyed. I say it with reverence,
it lias impelled ub whither it would,
effected its own will but nevertheless
guided and protected us."
Stanley then goes on to tell at length
of the sufferings of the rear columns
after disobeying his instructions; the
terrible experience of the advance
column which was lost in the brush and
the six-days' search which he had to
find it; the death of Jameson and
others; the seizure of Emin Pasha and
Jepbsnn by rebels; their rescue, etc.,
and adds Jephson's own letters will
describe hia anxiety, "Not until both
wero in my camp, and the Egyptian
fugitives safe under our protection,
did I begin to see I was only carrying
out a higher plan than mino. Not one
officer who was with. mo will forget
the miseries he has endured, yet every
ono that started from home destined
to march with the advance column and
share its wonderful adventures, ia horo
to-day safe, sound nnd well."
Referring to the terriblo privations
through which they lived, Stanley says;
"This was not due to me any moro
than to the courage with which they
have borne alt that was imposed upon
them by their surroundings, or the
cheery energy which they bestowed on
their work, or the hopeful voice whioh
rang iu the ears of the deafening multitude of blacks and urged tho poor souls
to their goal, The vulgar wilt call it
luck, unbelievers will oall it chance,
but deep down in each heart remains
tho feeling that of a verity there are
more things in heaven and oirth than
are dreamed of In common philosophy."

tbe effeot that he had seen the accused
sell a plug of tobacco to a Chinaman
for 26 cents, and that the itore contained fruit, cigars, fish-
Mr. McColl-"Ah, fish, eh?-
thought this was rather a fishy case."
Chief of police continuing, aaid it
was a clear case.
Mr.,McColl Baid that it must not be
presumed that because a sale hai been
made in a store that the seller is the
owner, and therefore responsible. If
that presumption were to be taken,
every merchant in town would have
from one to half a dozen criminals in
the store every day.
The chief of police said luch questions as the present might be new
enough to many people, but it was no
new thing to Ah Foo. Ah Foo smiled
his acknowledgments.
Hii honor finally taxed tho defendants with the costs, and ordered them
to tako out a license forthwith, which
they did.
The next oaso was that of John Wilson, charged with having been found
drunk in an Indian dwelling. John
enunciated the Queen's English in a
beautiful brogue of Milesian extraction. He said he had been pntty full,
nnd when down in .the neighborhood
of the Indian houses had offered for
sale a pair of mittens. The Indians
took the mittens and hid them, and in
going after them ho was caught by the
police. He said he was not posted
on the law relating to Indians and
whiskey. The property found in the
prisoner's pockets consisted of a pair
ot gloves and 5 cents. His honor remarked that the prisoner's exchequer
was in rather a depleted condition.
The priioner aaid the Indiana wore a
common, low lot, and tried to entice
men into their ihantiei to get liquor
from tbem.
His honor remanded prisoner for
sentence until 3 o'olock this afternoon,
and pointed out to him the beautiful
sights to be seen outside the city limit?,
aud also the unhealthiness of people of
prisoner's dalicate constitution remaining in this town over-night "Skip, Ib
iti" queried the priioner, anxiously,
"Ves, if you know your buiineu you
will," replied tbe clerk. "Yon bet!"
answered the priioner; and he was in
such a hurry that he forgot to ask his
5 centa baok.

A GREAT DEAL.
Consolidation of the Hoyal City Planing
nilla Company and tht Dostlng*
Sawmills Co.
For some months past it has been
whispered that Mr. John Hendry,
president of the Royal Oity Planing
Milli Co., was arranging a great deal
by which his company and other large
industries would bo merged iuto one,
and controlled by probably tlie most
wealthy aud influential syndicate in
tho province, Tho fint step accomplished towards this end was the purchase cf the Hastings Snw MUli Co.,
at Vancouver, an acquisition of great
value, and which was concluded by
Mr. Hendry after many weeki of negotiation. Having merged those two
great establishment! into one, the next
step was tho formation of a gigantio
company, with wider privileges, additional rights and other powers superior to thoso contained in tbe existing
charters. Meun. Drake, Jaokion &
Helmcken, solicitors for applicants,
have given notice that application will
be made at the next session of the
legislative assembly for an act to incorporate a oompany, to be called the
"British Columbia Mills, Timber &
Trading Co,," for tbe purpose of acquiring tho shares in tho capital, and
the business, property und privileges
of tbe Royal Oity Planing Milli'Co.
and tho Hastings Sawmills Co., and to
provide for the said companies being
merged therein and extinguished. Tho ,
application also asks for powers to acquire by purchase or otherwise, and to
maintain mills, factories, machine
shops, steam and other vessels, railways, tramways, canals, aud ferries;
to acquire and construct roads, dams,
bridges, flumes, eto.; to acquire timber leases and other lands; to acquire
gold, silver and other ores and minerals, logs, timber, lumber and merchandise, and to dispose of the same;
to exercise and carry on the business
of mill, timber and lumber merchants,
manufacturers, wharfingers and carriers, and to conduct and carry on a
shipping, towing and general trading
business. From the above it will be
noted that the new oompany intends to
greatly extend the scone of business
in all directions. Mr. Hendry is to be '
congratulated on the successful manner in whioh he has brought this groat
scheme to a head.

Monday tlie ratepayers will be
called upon to oloct n mnyor, four
aldermen, uiul threo water commissioners for tlio ensuing year. Then!
will be voting in ull four wards for
mayor und water ooinidiBiiotiors.
By reason of wind onn going by no
clamation, and the withdrawal of
Win. Johnston in ward four, thete
will be contests for aldermen in only
wards two nnd three. For the former thero are just three candidates
standing (James Punch having withdrawn), namely, John Reid, James
Johnston and D. McPhaden. The
candidates for ward threo aro B. W.
Shiles, H. Elliott, Al Sinclair and
A. AT, Herring, Two are to be
elected in euch ward.
With   respect to  the mayorulty
contest between John C. Brown and
Win. B. Townsend, we stated, in the
firstplace that wefavored Mr. Brown's
election because we believed that he
would make a better chief magistrate
on the whole than Mr.   Townsend.
This apart altogether from the perplexing salary squabble, which Mayor  Townsend    himself  raised   so
emphatically, and has since sought
to   put   to  ono  sido  altogether.
Whatever  action    the ratepayers
might be justified in taking on account of tbe mayor's masterly acrobatic performance  on  the  salary
question, there enn be little doubt
that a certain degree  of  confusion
will bo the result in   tho   minds of
many us to w hat   their  vote  may
really mean.    Mr. Townsend's  latest explanation even   is   confusing.
We refer to his communication published in this and the morning paper
on Thursday,   In   that  document
we find tho following "angularities:"
"The article   in   Tmth  yesterday
morning,   defining   the  duties   of
mayor, caused me to look   into   the
matter, and I find Uis right; and I
am not surprised that, viewing tho
duties in   that   light,  Mr.  Brown
would bo willing to do the same for
§1,000 per annum,    //" /  thought
lhat that was all that  was required
of tbo mayor, I would be willing to
continue doing the duties  of  the
mayor for nothing.   But that is not
the case; there is a great deal  more
to do"—   'Null' snid.   Verily the
way of the "tergiversator" is hard.
From tbe above we   conclude   that
tho mayor's honest   convictions are
too strong for him, and will out; tbat
lie still believes the   mayor  should
receive $2,000 a year as salary and
will endeavour to secure that   compensation should  he   bo  returned,
lie tlmt us it may, however, by casting their votes for Mr, Brown, the
ratepayers will have no doubt that
they are approving of tho principle
of paying the mayor a salary of 81,-
000 to begin with, and that,   without any disparagement of Mr. Town-
m»k1, they an- voting for the   better
man for mayor generally,
'We have already expressed our
opinion us io the best men to roturn
for aldermen in the wards requiring poll.   'We shall simply  indi
Tnn season for nil sorts of church
fairs and entertainments, with tho
object, principally, of raising money
for church work or charitable purposes, may bo said to have arrived,
and, as there aro two sides to this
as to other questions, it may bo as
well to honestly consider tho well-
put objections which a sincero opponent of thoso practices muy urge
against their propriety and continuance. At a recent meeting of 8t.
John's Episcopal church, Kast Boston, we find in an eastern paper, it
was proposed to make preparations
for tbe annual fair as heretofore.
To this the new rector, the Rev, H.
A. Monro, emphatically objected.
Ho said that if Ht. John's ohurch
could not meet its current expenses
without having recourse to fairs,
theatricals, rareo shows, and auctioneering, the sooner it went down
the better, "What can bo more
disgusting," ho said, "than to soo a

shouting'out, 'I'll givo $200 or $300
to begin with; who will give $200,
who 8100V and down to a dollar,
throwing in a doubtful witicism by
wuy of keeping his audionco in good
humor. Biiba fair, some of you
say, will bo held in the vestry.
What of it 1 le it becoming to worship God in the ohurch and to descend to all kinds of tricks in the
vestry to raise money 1 What is selling articles on shares but gambling?
Tho silly schemes of bogus post
offices, where decent young persons
debase their intellect by composing
sham letters in bad English, fortune
telling, and such like trash, are unworthy of countenance. When wo
need money to meet our expenses
let us raise it like Oliristions." Mr.
Monro's earnest words, ib is stated,
bad the ellect of carrying his people
with liim, and many of them came
forward at onco and pledged themselves at all times to meet tbo current expenses of the churoh without
recourse to fairs or theatrical enter
tainments.
We think it is un indisputable
proposition, if, as a secular journal,
we have a right to express an opinion on tbo matter, that the cause of
Christianity would be considerably
benefited throughout the world, were
all pastors and congregations to follow the example set by Mr. Monro
and his Boston flock. Certainly, the expedients resorted to
by some churches in some localities for raising money for different church purposes are nothing
short of scandalous and disgraceful
—"disgusting" is not to strong an
expression concerning tbem. In
this favored provinco, where even
tho blizzards, the hydrophobia, and
the sunstroke of the effete east never
intrudo, the objectionable practices
wo have alluded to are not carried
to the extremes tbat tboy are elsewhere ; but even hore thero is room
for improvement, and most of our
churches would be the better for
raising all the money to meet their expenses, as the East Boston rector
tersely and uncompromisingly put it,
"like Christians." Next to church
fairs, with the usual accompaniment
of raffles, grab-bags, eto., perhaps
the most un-Christinn exhibition enjoying the countenance of a Chris-
tain church in this province, was the
mock debate last year, in the lecture
room of a Victoria Methodist church,
by theladies, as to whetbertbe Apostle
Paul was a married man or a bachelor. Such performances and methods
of money raising as we have been considering havo an almostiuevitable tendency of bringing tbe church and its
work into contempt with n skepti
cal and critical world. We do not
indulge in these strictures from
nny spirit of unfriendliness or hostility to the churches, but merely to
give expression to what we believe
to bo the honest, disinterested public sentiment on tho question. If
the churches are right in this matter, no amount of criticism will hurt
them : if they are wrong,'even if it
be only in the smallest particular,
and thoughtlessly so, they should
certainly bo the first to set the example of obeying one of tho divine
precepts which they are bound to
inculcate, and "avoid the very appearance of evil."

The east end of London, which
embraces some of the most disreputable quarters of the metropolis, has
long been a favourite field of labor for
tho philanthropist, and the Ohristnin
worker. Now, we are told, tho fashionable west end is to have its turn.
A society has been formed for the
purpose of carrying on evangelistic
work there, and of converting the
fashionables to Christianity. It is
Btated that even Marlborough house
will bo looked after in this way. It
might be well, thinks an exchange,
to begin with some of the churches.
The lato king of Portugal certainly had some noble qualities. During his last illness, when he was
signing decrees, it became bo evident
that he had not strength to get

in attendance had to separate them
according to their importance, putting aside those that were not
urgent, and just mentioning the
naturo of thoir consents as lie did
so. Among them was a pension of
100reis (sixpence) a day to an old
woman, and that, after being named
was, without hesitation, placed by
the minister at the bottom of the
rejected heap, the king saying nothing. When he had with difficulty
got thmudythe important heap, hn

It was a vory cbnrmlnfc little IfiopptoR-

being full. Just as sho was wondering who! Whito Island is nearly circular and about
threo miles in circumference, writes an
Auckland correspondent of tho Bun Friiu-
clsco Chronicle, It consists of tall cliffs ou
three sides formed of rock ond looso rubbish thrown up from tho crator. On the
fourth sido Is a largo flat many acres in extent, broken in two places by tail uud fantastic rocky eminences, whieh appear lo
havo onco formed part of tbo cliffs in which
tho flats would soom to bo a fault. These
cliffs aro eight hundred feot in height, por*
pondioular within and gently sloping to the
sea. Beforo you Is a vast amphitheater of
extraordinary tint. Tho walls of this basin,
towering up to the sky, appear serrated at
the edges and intersected along tbo fnco by
on Inextricable net-work of fissures und
crevices. Landed la tho ship's dingy ou
tho bowldor-strcwn bcaeh, wo find ourselves within the awe-inspiring Inclosuro of
this wonderful placo. A largo plain of
mineral deposit is beforo ono, and on ttie
right Is scon a tramway leading up to what
Ib known as tho Adamant reef. In tho center of this plain Ib tho wonderful boiling
lake. As wo approach it along a woll-bealcii
track the ground becomes of a chocolato
color, and all at onco tho visitor Ib conscious
of tho most pungent ordors as the fumes
from tha surfaco of tho boiling lako nnd the
base of the surrounding walls of rock
reach him, A few Bteps more and a magnificent Bcono bursts upon tho viow. Below
you lies tho moat extraordinary tinted picture that poet, artist, explorer, novelist,
tourist or special over gazed upon. The
genoral tono o'f the ground Uno is of u deep
chocolato, tho walls of rook around of that
worm color known to artists as madder
brown, rollovcd with roso moddor, tho edgo
of tho lake a deep eraugo and tho lako Itsolf a blending of tho peculiar green of
verdigris and lomon yollow. At the base of
tho rocks Issuo jots and clouds of vapor.
Tha tint of this lako iB probably duo to
tho faot that aa tho volume of wator has
lessened tho chemical properties In the
water havo becomo of greater strength,
and some predominating over others glvo
tho present extraordinary hue. Tho lake is
simply a soothing, bubbling mass of muriatic
aold, and as the liquid boils up tho bubbles
have their sides in shadow, reflecting a
green Ungo, tho whole surface omitting a
vapor that vory soon finds out your lungs
and tickles tho mucous membrane of your
nosooud throat, to Bay nothing of bringing
to the oyos involuntary tears.
To tho right, following the natural basin
of tho island, is chaos itself—rocks, stpnes.

would occupy tho Beat with ber, a rather
elderly lady, with n slightly troubled expression, entered tho car, and looked anxiously
up nnd down the rows of scats. Bho approached Sadie somewhat timidly, but Sadie
lilted tho flowers from the scat bosido her,
uud said brightly: "You can sit here if you
like, madam." Tho lady—that she was a
lady was written all over her, though evidently unused to traveling alone—thanked
hor with a very relieved face, and sat down
licsido her, Tho lady's eyes fell at onco on
the flowers and lingered there. Sadie, who
wns watching hor now traveling companion, saw from the half-sad, half-tender
smilo which curved hor lips, and the abstracted dreamy look on her faco, that she
was far away from her present turrouud-
ings, and busy with memories wbloh the
usters and golden-rod bad stirred. As sbo
looked up with a half sigh, Sadio said: "You
lovo flowers!" •'•tv**
',' O, very muoh t Wild ones particularly.
I used to gather such as thoso when I was
a littlo girl, I used to trim my sun-hat
with thom, and up by the old school-house
on tho hill my girlhood's friend and I bad a
plot of them walled around with stones.
" I haven't scon them in ages boforo, my
homo having been in the far West."   .-***
"I am taking theso to a friend whose fa*
vorite flowers they used to be; but you must
1 pleaso accept half of them." • •*»
The lady thanked her but declined the
gift, saying sho could not rob her of thom.
"You will not rob her* for I oan send her
ii box full," separating the flowers as sh*
spoko.
Tho lady's llpqutverod, and her oyos grew
moist, us Bho gracefully accepted them.
Bho told Sadio that she was on her way
buck to ber home in tho WcbI, having made

Sadie did all In hor power to make her
comfortable as far their ways lay together,
and onjoyod her companionship, sinco she
was very intelligent and cultured, as further conversation revealed. Whon they
reached K— they, parted with real re-
grot; Sadie wishing the lady, whoso name
she did not know, a safe and pleasant journoy, mt0*r-

Mr. P. MoTiernan Indian ngeut

thu Indians, who ure cutting timber on
provincial government lands. The
fittaiuc-r which wus to convoy him north
broko down while going frum Nanaimo
to Vaucodver, and alio will nut bo
ready to begin her voyage until next
Tt.ettd.ty. Mr. MoTiernan mado this
lung and rough voyage several times
last winter, and says it is a wild, rug-
gel country away up thore. No timber is expected from the Indians cutting tho timber, und Mr. McTiernun's
mission is merely to regulate the matter.

The contractors fur tW improvement to Queon's avenue, between

before tho civic elections, thu candidates for wards two and and three were
uncommonly busy among thoir friends
and supporters, stirring thom up to

tlmt tho election in ward two will bo a
yory one-sided affair. Tho candidates
in ward three aro leaving no stone unturned to gain their election, but, wot If,
as thoy will, it baa been impossible so
far lo create any publio enthusiasm iu
tho matter. The general impression
seems to be that tho mayoralty elcc-
tion is a puzzle of tho most aggravating naturo, and svon tho keenest observers of publiu opinion nro at fault

all excitement.

Ono of tho pieces of machinery taken
to Victoria this morning by tho Yo-
Boinitfl was a patent I'un-carriigo to be
mounted on a pivot and uinnuiuvreJ
en barbette. The peculiar principle of
tho carriage is its recoil-breaking properties. l»y au ingenious mechanism
the recoil of tho gun is reducud to almost nothing, and without sti lining or
jarring tho vessel. In a cylinder is
placed 'ibout 17 quarts of pure glycerine, and the piston being Btiuted by
the recoil of the gun forces tho glycerine through numerous holes punctured
in the false hoad of tho cylinder,; tlilis
acting almost liko a pneumatic cushion
and deadening the recoil completely,
Glycerine ia usod because it will not
stiffen with cold as oil dnea, and ia in
good condition nnd ready for use at all
times. Thoso lateit developments of
tho genius nf war are nianufuctured in
Kir William Armstrong's grout gun and
war material factory at Klswiek, Eng
land. Tho gun shield uccmupaiiying
the carriage is bo constructed ns to afford protection to the gunners from
rifle, Nordonfel.lt, Hotchkiss and other
bullets, as also fragments of exploded
shells, to which ouch a gun would inevitably bo exposed on the upper deck.

Tbe Salmon PacLcra.
Tho British Columbia delegation of
salmon packers aro rushing things at
Ottawa. A few mornings ago they
had an interview with Sir Hector
Langevin, and asked that the government snagboat bo sont up to Sumas to
assist iu repairing tho rivor bank, wliich
had just given way, also relative to securing another appropriation for tho
purpose of completing the dredging of
the Fraser river, it is understood
that their recommendations with regard to the salmon fishery regulations
include 11 request for permission to use
nets of 5J inch uicsh as in former
years, thu substitution of a weekly
close limu of u0 hours instead of 42 as
ul present; an increase iu the numbor
of boat lieonsea to canneries; each
cannery to have 40 boats with such
further allowance uf additional licenses
as the department inny deem advisable.
The delegation also asked that thoy bo
allowed to deposit; tho fish offal in
Fraser river, this, thoy contend, being
tho natural and usual method of disposing of it. The canners recommended thnt tho department maintain the
efficiency of the 13. 0. butchery, and
opoiato it to its fullest capacity, nnd
thoy urge that another hatchery bo established in the interior towards the
headwaters of tho Thompson or Frasor
rivet', uud protect the natural spawning
grounds. Their Inat suggestion ia that
no protection be givon to trout, as they
consider them tho natural enemies of

nominated for the Ofll CO Of .Mnyor, Ibe:;
molt respectfully to solicit your support.
the salary question raised by Mayor
Townsend enn lio disposed of in 11 few
words. One of my masons fur refu'lng,
when tlmt invited to bfiCOhlQ a candldale,
was lhat I could not iiU'ord tbe expenditure Umt Hie postllon would entail, and
this v/as removed by tlm express r.ssiir-
mice of those enlllled to speak with mt-
thorltv, that It bad been definitely decided to ai inch a salary of 81000 per annum in
lho position, no mailer Who nceupled it.
I have made no demands and no biuveiiis
whatever, except mv ariilttgeffiottt with
Mayor Townsend, that {.should go before
tho ratepayora us approving tho polley of
the council, above staled, nnd that bu
should appeal to them us seeking election
only on the understanding that Hie full
salary allowed hy law ($2000 per annum)
should bo paid.
As T stated on nomination day, I should
endeavor, If elected, to see that the civic,
business was thoroughly systematized,
and that each ollicor and member of the
counoil did Ills appointed work nnd was
held to Uis responsibility therefor. The
mayor should keep himself informed ns
to the progress of ull municipal business,
but nny interference beyond   that Willi
e progress of all municipal business,
..... any interference beyond that Willi
officials and committees of the council
would.iii my view, be a grave mistake.
I will not attempt to enter upon any detail of the rantters whleh will come before
the council noxt year; but I mav sny, that
suoh measures us tend to mnko New
Westminster a healthy and attractive
place of residenco should have our tlrst
consideration.
Should yoa do me tbe honor to elect
me, I shall consider myself bound during
my term of offlce to stand outside of any
posaiblo cliques or parties—to preserve, us
far as I can, nn Impartial mind and an
unbiased Judgment, nnd solo boar myself under all circumstances, thnt ttie good
name of Now Weatmlnster shall not suffer through me.
I think it scarcely necessary to assure
you that I that I take a very deep Interest
fn lho welfare of this eity, in which ull my
Interests aro centered, In which I havo
lived sliipe boyhood, and In which J expect to spend iho remaining years of my
Iii conclusion let mo say Dint, If elected,
I shall give you the bost servico of which
I am capable,
