Xt was noticeable while the senate galleries were pretty closely packed with spectators, that the ladies were not in tho
majority as usual. They preferred to
witness the scenes in the liouse. Several
foreign delegates to the maritime and
pan-American conferences and a number
of ladies occupied scuts in tho diplomatic
gallery. Sir Julian Paunceforte, British
minister, and Admiral Kozonkoir, of the
Russian navy, were present. The usual
friendly greetings were interchanged on
the floor between the members and officers of the senate. After swearing in
the new senators, the senate adjourned

THE IDAHO WRECKED.
Tbe dteaiucr Buns on the Bocks Near
Bace BoeltH Llfht.
Tho 0. U, & N. Co.'s steamship
Idaho, Captain Arkwright, ran on the
rocks about a quarter of a mile from
Race Rocks lighthouse nt ten minutes
past seven o'clock this morning and
will probably prove a total wreck. At
tho timo of tho accident Bhe was on
her way to Portland with a general
cargo, the most of which wns lime.
She had very few passengers on board.
A thick wot fog prevailed at the
timo, unl pivvion. to striking "thu fo-j
whistle at tt xe Rucks was kept blov. •
iiiji ni unswer to the Idaho's blasts.
Just beforo striking the Idaho answered three blasts from the lighthouse- fog
whistle, nnd no more were afterwards
heard. The fog lifting a few minutes
afterward, tlio keeper i-f the lighthouse, W. P. Dakin, discovered the
vtsflel at a stindstill. Going over to
her in a bunt, ho asked if anything
could b" done, but was told no. Ic
I was then seen that the steamer was on
I thu rocks, ubout n quarter of a mikt
from tho lighthouse. Sho wa* resting
easily, na tin: wator wns ns Binooth no
glass. Tho swell caused her to awny
to and fro nnd she was in no diuigor
unless a g«|e came up.
At tho time of striking the tide was
nearly hiuh, nud the chances of getting
her off wero considered slim. There
wns no confusion nor were nny lives
lost.
Tho vessel on striking made water
fast and the cargo wus thrown overboard in the hopes of lightening her
for the high tide t.-night, Assistance
was lookod for bore for tugs to go to
hor help, but nothing could bBobtained.
Mr. George Cooper telegraphed the
meagre puiticulara to headquarters
nml it was expect -A tugs from Port
Townsend would be sont to her itsi-ist-
tnue this uft moon,
Tho Idaho is an old screw steamer
nnd 1ms been in the Alaska trado for
years und wns once lihellt-d by the
U. S, government for illicit traffic and
placed undor 830,000 bonds. The
agent here could not state whether the
vessel wns insured or not.
The lighthouse keeper mndc the trip
from Rocky Point to tho city, about
2(1 miles, in threo hours, with a buggy and fast trotter.
On both sides of where tho steamer
etruok is said tu be deep water, but
owing to tho fog nud bnd luck she gob
out of tlio propor channel.--Times of

Victoria is waking up and now industries nre rising evory day. Tho
rice mills nto now exporting largo
quantities of screenings for use in the
manufacture of American lager; an
enterprising young Victorian left for
the mainland this morning to purchase
1,000 young pullets, it being his intention to start a chicken fnrm and supply
Victorin with fresh eggs. Latest and
bost, skilled artisans arrived in the oity
a fow evenings ngo, and tho result of
their coming will be the establishment
of a trunk factory, on a small scale at
first, but likely to prove ono of the
most important industries of the province.- Colonist of Saturday.

THE I1KHR1KU SEA I'lSIlKllIKS.
London, Doc. 2.—Tho Times is devoting a good deal of space lately to an
agitation of the Alaskan teal fishery
question. Tho government is urgod
nut to acquiesce in a policy on the part
of tho United Statei which will completely exclude British interests from
the benefit of sealeries. The claim of
the United States that Bohring sea it
American water solely, is elaborately
contradicted by the Times, the old
stock arguments on the opposite side
of tho question being brought forward
in stronger ray. Just why the Times
should be' taking so much interest in
nn issue that was tacitly dropped some
time ago is not well understood. Lord
Salisbury does not show any evidence
of dpsiring to reopen the questioned,
indeed, tho liberals, commenting on
the Times' articles, openly declare thut

DOM PEDRO'S RECEPTION.
London, Dee. 2.—There are great
preparations going on in LiBbon, ooth
military and civic, for tho roception of
Dtrni Pedro, of Brazil, The royalists
and republicans nre ono in their desiro to
pay a pcrsuiial tribute to the deposed
ruler of Brazil, who is beloved by all.
But though no friction iB likely to occur
between the political factions on that
occasion, it is pretty gonqratly nonccded
that tho republicans will at some distant,
day cause a test to bo made of thoir
strength.
FOOLED THB POLICE.
London, Dec. 2.—-Tho Irish nationalists are enjo.iug themselves over the
trouble they have caussd the police at
Limerick by making ostensible preparations for extensive meetings in honor of
the "Manchester martyrs. They have
kept the entire constabulary of tbo district in a ferment, double guards being
on duty night and day. The discomfiture of tho "bobbies," as the conviction
slowly dawned npon tbem that they were
being hoaxed, is described as something
pitiable,

Brussels, Doc. 2.—The anti-slavery
conference yesterday adopted resolutions
covering tbe following points: States
possessing African territory to establish
a local military forco for the suppression
of blavery therein; inland states to be
connected with the coast by railways;
steamers to be placed oa the great lakes;
firearms to be excluded from the slave
districts; the suppression of cannibalism

STEAMSHIP COLLISION.
London, Deo. 2.—The steamer Iowa,
bound from Liverpool to Boston, with
passengers and cargo, collided in the
Mersey last night with the steamer
Liguyan, from Alexandra for Liverpool, with cotton, aud also with, the
Spanish steamer Munin. Tho Liguyan

most thoughtful men have been the
most afraid of the great God. The
most enlightened have trembled as
they bave surveyed His power. Job,
Jacob, Peter; and BelaUzzar feasting
in his halls felt within him that awful
fear not of the hand-writing, tbe warning on tbe wall, but of the pretence of
God inthe solemn warning, "Mene,
raene, tekel upharsin." He felt the
voice of God in him. Man hat tried
every expedient to win his way baok

Christ only will God recognize the
tinners. There aro men who through
eivtt u iiesi amass immense wealth
and never during their lives do aught
to ameliorate thu condition of their

attempt to make partial restitution by
willing their money to found charitable

they may have existed under the law,
but they aro useless now. Christ is all

his selfish nature had not bent elm -stoned, he would not be counted ieco d

setishuess showed up when h>- coi *d

then this affair of the Amnlek t. s did
not seem tu call for such severo condemnation and punishment, while for
adultery and murder, David hud not
been so punished. But wo must remember that David went through
greater trials and temptations than
Saul, and, although he committed
greviouB sin, his prayer was honest
and intensely earnest, and his repentance bitter and severe. Saul's rejection took place upon the committing
of tho sin; there waa no revocation of
the sentence; from that time it was
a downward career, from bad to worse,
the recognition of God was taken away
and his power as a ruler was gone;
and when no help from God wu forthcoming, in his dispair, he called alt

Spake ■ saa-liy.
ST.  ANDREWS PRBSBVTJERIAN  CHURCH.
The Rev. T, Scouler selected as his
text last evening at St. Andrew'sPres-
bytorian ohurch, verse 5, chanter 2nd,
of St. Paul's first epistle to Timothy.
"For there is one God and one media
tor between God and men, the man,
Jesus Christ." Paul in his noble epistle to his friends exhorts them to pray
for all men, friend and foo, commoners,
kings and rulers alike. And for all in
authority, that thote who live under
them may lead a quiet and peaceable
life in all godliness and honesty, God
wants all men laved and his gospel is
for men of every rank and condition.
They all require salvation, but of their
own power they cannot be saved; Christ
is the mediator; through Bim must tbo
contrite hearts make pesce with their
God. Men rest under the curso of
heaven, they havo been estranged from
God aud have wandered away from
his love. Tho storm, the tempest, the
thundor and the lightning and all
other upheavals and natural disturbances are evidences of God's wrath
against man. Scientists may tell us
that those things are ns much a part
of the machinery of nnture as the sunshine and the shower, but tho faithful
know thnt hsd man never sinned then
things would novor havo existed.
Man is now afraid of God. Ho feels
not that fear whioh is jutt towards the
awful majesty of tho most high God,
tho Omniicient Makor nnd Ruler of tht
sword, a tragic ending
have beeu a life of brightness and usefulness. What do we learn from this?
First: The danger of part obedience;
that whon God lays the command, we
mutt obey tho letter, His commands
are uraotical not poetical; how many
aro trying to servo God at long as it
doos not effect their worldly self interests. Full and complete obedieuce
ahowt the honesty of conscience; partial obedience depraves, leads astray
into a false light and relation. Then
it is potiible to give a religious reason
for not fully obeying tho commandments; the excuie is that they have
grubbed hard to get their money and
that by nnd bye they are going to do
somo grand big thing in the end. Men
desire fame because they ssy in positions of honor and trust tbey can do
more for God. These are very plausible excuses, but the whole thing is a
sham, and by and bye devils will mock
and laugh after the whole thing is torn
ssunder and the true motives are
brought to light in the last great
day of account. If yon go into
sin don't go into it nnder the cloak of
religion, for the world will see through
it quickly. Then don't chango or try
to obange God's command, or seek to
do it some other way, because yon
think a little different way would be
bettor; don't be like Saul and think it
sacrilege and save the oattle; don't you
think that Saul wished to graco hia
triumph by saving Ang? how easy it
was to peuuade himself to amend God's
command. My friendi obey God's
command, do or die. The reverend
gentleman concluded by reminding
them of Saul's hopeless rejection and
the loss of his tout, and pleading with
them to escape tho fiery mdignaton of
God by obeying his command, and to
learn from Saul's sad life and tragio
end thnt obsdienoe is what God requires. JAUV BRITISH OQtP _*«_**. Mgg ggSTMIMKTKB. B g. OlflBMBBB i, UM.

It will be seen from the result of
tho nominations to-day tliat wo nro
to have a contest for the mayoralty
and in all tho wards except
waul 1. Somo good candidates liavo
been brought forward, hnd thia fact
and the laudable interest manifested by the ratepayers is satisfactory
assurance that the impending civic
elections are not to be permitted to
goby default. Westminster mny
be aaid to havo entered upou a new
era in this respect last year, and it
is gratifying to note that the royal
city is not going back on ita record.
During tho week that will elapse
before polling day tho ratepayers
will probably he favored with some
expressions from the various candidates as to their views and policy on
municipal matters for the ensuing
year. We are unable to-day togo
into the interesting question of the
comparative merits of tbe respective
candidates. We shall take an early
opportunity, however, of expressing
an opinion on thesematters,and,ason
all public questions, our columns are
open for free discussion, within reasonable bounds, as to the comparative fitness of the various aspirants
for municipal honors and emoluments.
The Kamloops Sentinel calls attention to the deplorable and out*
rageous fact that deer aro being in
discriminately slaughtered in the interior for their hides alone, and cites
an instance of 38 being killed in
one day by a whito man and an In
dian for this purpose. The Sentinel
also learns that many of the dealers
throughout the surrounding districts
hav-i already in store large consignments of deer hides obtained in this
contraband way. "There is doubt*
less good wiig<-s earned at such
wor _c," says our cotemporary, "but
it will eventually lead to the entire
extf rlnination of tho animals." As
the Sentinel points out, "more strin-
gehi legislation should be enacted in
this matter, and means of enforcing
the -imctment provided. Until this
is d >nu it is doubtful if the slaughter i <f -leer for their hides alone will
be r nt a stop to," The importance
of p *e..crving to this province its
rich virgin resources from the cri-
niin il recklessness and rapacity of

Dom Pedro, the deposed emperor
of Brazil, is described as a man of
Btrikhi-,' physical presence, being 6
feet 4 inches in height, and well pro
portioned. IJcwritt-sand reads fluently English, French, German, Spanish
and Italian. Thoroughly democratic in character, his manners nro
simple and unaffected, nnd his tastes
thoso of a rational and unselfish
gentleman, who cares littlo for the
pomp and luxury of state. Details
of etiquette nover had any fascination tor him, and a discussion with
a learned man on some question of
science or nrt is more pleasing to
him i hau having to presido ovor a
stite ceremoninl. Hence it is not
surprising that he wns nover unwilling to yield up his sceptre to
othor hnnds whilo he travelled
where he could follow his own tastes
with greater freedom. In 1871 ho
visited London, Paris, Florence.,
Homo, Brussels nnd other European
capitals, nnd in 187C he went to
the United States. As indicative
of his unassuming manner it may bo
mentioned that at a Paris hospital
ho wiii taken for the correspondent
of a London daily journal, and that
gentleman received all the salutations nnd explanations intended for
the emperor. Dom Pedro made a
sign to a doctor who hnd found out
the mistake not to say anything
about it. In the United States, as
in Europe, he was always out betimes in tlio morning, making tho
moat of evory opportunity to inform
liims If thoroughly as to all ho saw.
He made friends readily, and the
freedom nnd peculiar insistency and
pertinacity with whicli he asked
questions, the evident intelligence
and .nowledgn exhibited by those
questions, attracted muoh attention
to him und mado bis visit mora than
usually noticeable, In Europe he
roused LeVerrier, the astronomer,
from sleep soon after dawn. Lo
Vomer, who worked lato into tho
night, was furious at being disturbed so soon after going to bed.

If the records ot any one thousand of the four hundred thousand
divorces granted iu tho United
States during the past twenty years
were examined, and laid even in
their broadest features before the
public, there would be, declares an
exchange, an amount of fraud,
weakness, intrigue nnd downright
wickedness revealed that would perhaps rouso publio feeling to a reform of theso laws, quite ns much
us Mrs. Stowo's "Undo Tom" impressed tho publio into action
against slavery. Ifc can scarcely be
said thnt tho subject is a pleasing
ono for a novel, though tho study
of the morbid phases of tho phenomena of divorce would find many
readers, and might not be wholly
useless to the body politic. No inventiveness would be required j the
facts would furnish plots and incidents rivalling tlie most sensational
stories ever printed. How lightly the
marriage tio is viewed mny be
jutlgod from the fact that recently
in Chicago tho wholo time occupied
in securing a divorce from the moment the application was tiled to
the issuo of the decree, wns but ten
minutes, This indecent haste is
condemn able, but uot so much us
the decision the other day in a divorce court of Texas, setting free a
man becauso his wife hud become a
member of a set of "sruictification-
ists," who under tho presidency of
his mother-in-law hud mado his
house their .place of meeting. No
act of marital infidelity had been
alleged, nor any of the minor offences that commonly are made
grounds for divorce, but the applicant alleged that amongst the obnoxious doctrines of the sect was
"that it is sinful for a wifo who is a
member to live with u husband who
docs not believe the doctrine ; that
such a husband is a serpent in the
house, and the wife should separate
and depart from him." The poor
man certainly wns entitled to commiseration, under a trial such as tins,
but scarcely to a decree of divorce.
Tho divorced woman did not ap
parent ly beliove in the doctrine
complained of, and tier appeal to the
supreme court of the state has resulted, happily for society, in a
quashing of the decree. The supreme court hns practically decided
that religious belief cannot be n
ground for divorce, but that extreme
nets or conduct clue :o such belii-f
may be, This still leaves the matter open, for many Texas pcoplp, no
doubt, consider the doings of the
sect complained of "extreme acts"
due to religious belief, and n propm*
basis for an nppllcation for divorce.
There ure yet few indications in
mnny of thn states of a movement
towards n better divorce system,
Possibly so m ■ ny of the families,
social circles and churches are so
compromised by the present system
that an agitation ou the subjoofc
would be anything but welcome,

The story that a Scotchman has
no idea of humor is evidently ub base
as that other yarn which attributes
to Irishmen the inability to talk
without indulging in bulls. A Scotch
papor recently opened its columns
for oontributed jokes. The following are some of the funny items it received : "Ahorse falling down dead,
a man asked, 'Did it over do that
boforo 1'" A woman, having foresworn whiskey in a glass drank it
out of a oup," "A man took the
hat worn by a scarecrow." "Whiskey having been ordered for outward application, the patient drank
it." "A man, having eaten a herring at ten, wished also for some
treacle, which was refused," It
will be observed that the wit
is not of that boisterous kind
that causes people to shout with
laughter until their buttons aro
blown from their moorings. The
humor is quiet and unobtrusive ;
but it is humor all tho samo.

NICKED BOOT HEELS.
I j How Sleeping Car Waiter. Marked
tke Inspectors or Spotter..
: A Treasury official, who does considerable railroad traveling, lays he has
made an amusing discovery whioh, 11
properly carried out, insures unusual
care and attention from employees on
parlor and sleeping cars. The tourist
who has been initiated is provided with
the most comfortable seat in the dining
| car, receives special care and attention
; from tho waiters, and is always sure to
have a lower berth in the sleeper.
Should any of his fellow passengers be-
*, come jealous at tbe marked courtesy
j shown their comrade and inspired with
'curiosity to know why tho distinction
is mado, they have only to look atthe
heels on the shoes of tho favored one
and they will observe tbat there is a
'■ small" nick " or notch there,
Inspectors or "spotters "of the palace-car service are constantly traveling
| over the railroads to see that the passengers received proper attention. They
do not Intend to have their connection
with the company known to the railroad officials, but frequently the latter
" drop " to their little game and stamp
them so that they will be known all
along the road. The porter in gathering up the boots and shoes in his car
cuts a " nick" tn the hind part of the
Bltse belonging to the inspector, so that
the other porters will recognize him as
they look at his shoes.
Thss Treasury official in a mysterious
way became aware that a nick in the
heel of bis shoe would greatly facili*
tate his comfort and pleasure in traveling. He tried the experiment and it
worked to his entire satisfaction. He
found that he was served with the best
provisions the buffet car afforded, his
shoes received the brightest shine, and
although he had been obliged to purchase an upper berth the conductor on
the sleeper kindly placed a " lower " at
his disposal. It Is probable that a new
system for tagging the " spotters " will
be adopted ln the railway service, now
that their trademark becomes known.

Wonderful Progress Hade by tke Colored Race ln Ten Yean.
The facts are, the colored race has
been making enormous strides in the
way of money gotting during the past
ten years. Why, in the City of AVitstt-
ington to-day, a city in whicli the
Emancipation Proclamation of 23 years
ago found less than a dozen free blacks,
thero are 104 colored men who pay
taxes on above 825,000 each. The author
of the standard history of the African
race in Americais worth 810,000. Hon.
Frederick Douglass has 8300,000. Boston has a colored merchant tailor svho
clothes the Beacon Hill aristocracy and
does a business of 8350,000 a year. Ilo
was once a slave, aud followed Sherman and his troops on their march to
tho sea. When he reached Charleston
his worldly possessions were a suit of
very ragged clothes and 28 cents.
Tho present Tax Collector of tho
District of Columbia, himsolf a colored
man, pays taxes nn 8250,000. New
York hnd a colored druggist who died
recently leaving 81,000,000, and a son-
in-law worth 8150,000. Tho ex-United
States Minister to Hayti has 875,000.
Less than ono hundred colored men in
Pittsburg pay taxes on a combined
property valuation of 82,600,000.
Cincinnati has a colored furniture
dealer whose ckeck is good any day for
8100,000. Twenty-three years ago he
was a Kentucky slave. The lato Bob-
ert Gordon owned more than a scoro
of four-story residences nt the time of
his death. One day ho entered a Cincinnati bank and asked for government
bonds. The cashier did not know him,
and when he handed out his check for
815,000 he appealed to the president of
the bank. "Get him the bonds," said
tho latter; "he can draw his check for
ten times that sum." Buffalo has 0;
New Orleans, 48; Philadelphia, 04;
Chicago, 22; Louisville, 8; Charleston,
12; Atlanta, 4, and Pittsburg has 11
colored men who pay taxes on more
than 810,000 each and never think of
attending the sittings of tho court of
tax appeals. Up to the failure of tlse
Freedmen's Savings Bank tho colored
people of tho South had deposited
| fresh air. Some become partially un*
conscious, like a person half drunk
from alcohol, and mutter incoherently.
They generally recover in an hour or
two, but must sleep. Occasionally convulsions, like those of epilepsy, are observed. These severe symptoms are
.usually experienced but once and disappear after a week or two; but others
have them over again, whenever they
are overworked or ln hot weather. All
the hands suffer in health it they continue many months at this work.
Chronlo dyspepsia and general lack
of strength are Induced. Those who
suffer frequently or severely ought to
abandon the employment. Tho rooms
should be large and ventilated as freely
as possible, and every workman should
wear a " respirator," ln the shape of a
cloth wet in an alkaline solution, over
the mouth and nostrils.
New Caledonia.
New Caledonia is neither more nor
less than a penal settlement of France,
assd it has absorbed as many criminals
as tlie French Government dare send.
But away some two hundred miles to
the ssortheast there lies a fair range of
islr.mls, which are not only beautiful
ansl fertile in themselves but which
seem to present quito a succession of
comfortably Isolated residences for
those who leave France at the expense
of their country and for their country's
good.
The new Hebrides Archipelago com*
prise some twenty Islands, large and
small, the largest being Espiritu Santo,
which measures about seventy miles
ln length by about thirty in breadth.
Tho aborigines of the group have all
come from the samo Papuan stock; yet
not only do they differ very much in
physical aspect, but tribes are absolutely foreigners to other tribes. Not
only has each Island Its own language,
but so also has each tribe; at any rate,
it is recorded that on one of the islands
alono there aro six nativo towns in
which six distinct languages are spoken.
These languages, no doubt, have all a
certain infinity, yet they are marked by
differences somewhat broader than
what we are accustomed to regard as
dialects. This confusion of tongues la
one of the most remarkable character'
lstlcs of the New Hebrides, as well as
and charges upon partnership accounts
arose, in connection with which it was
necessary to scttlo the validity of somo
signatures. Instead of resorting to the
testimony of handwriting exports, Dr.
Frazerwas induced to apply the principle of composite photography.
The principle was discovered recently
by nn Englishman named Galton, and
consists in producing a photograph
which Is an embodiment of a number
of originals. It Is done by taking photographs of each subject separately,
giving each plate, however, but a proportionate amount of the time requisite
for its proper development, Iu this
way only the features which are in all
the originals appear distinctly in the
composite, whilo the exceptions and
irregularities aro lost. The discoverer
obtained remarkable results iu securing types of criminals, persons afflicted
with pulmonary troubles, family likenesses, etc.
Dr.Frazer wns given eighteen checks
admittedly  signed by  tho decedent,
which  ho divided into three groups,
according to the sizo of tho handwriting,   Some checks were used in tho
two groups, so thnt each one of the
three composites was made up from
about a dozen checks.  Tho results was
that in each ono of the plates tho signature "Clark & Co." was quite distinct,
the only indistinct and superfluous
lines being about the lirst letters,

An Arizona landscape brings the feeling that our earth is really dying. Tho
blight of old age seems upou her, and
the unmistakable signs of decaying
years at hand—tho desert the proof of

again made its way to tho front, tho

to our long series of victories by their
defeat of the Law brothers, at Victoria,
on Saturday, in a two milo nice. Tho
raco wns witnessed by several hundred
people, aud tho number of sightseers
would have been much greater but for
the etoady rain thnt fell throughout
tbo day. A good start waa made at
2:30 o'clock, tho Victorians getting
away slighily in ihe lead, which, howovor, did not prove of much advantage. The Westminster mon aoon
overtook and passed them, holding the
lead over tho two-milo courso to tho

but it was evident from the etnrt that
they woro nu mutch for their opponents.

The Peril™ of a Dtver'a LIIV.
Capt Harman, who was reported to
have been drowned while helping to repair tho break in the Vnucouver water
iks main, is buck among his old
frionds in Victoria, us merry and jolly
ns ever. In conversation with it Veto-
nid mini ou Friday, tho captain emphatically dented tlmt he was drowned.
He explained, howover, that in under-
taklug tbe job which they were called
on to perform at tho Narrows, the divers practically took their lives in their
own hands, owing to tho trtinohorous
and daugerous naturo of tlio under
currents.    Whilo at work below watar,
swirling eddy caught him ami Ins
uipauiou diver, Llewelyn, and tangled the air pipes,—tlio greatest calamity that can befall n diver whilo ho is
down. Llewelyn's supply of air was
xhauati tl, but the captain appreciating
tho danger of the situation gave tlio
goal and both were drawn to tho aur-
f.ice, nuii'o the wnr»0 for their near approach to-the terrors of death.
Stole a Itmir
Ah Stuoy resides at Pnrt Haney, or
did reside there until the legal aiithori
ties decided that a change of air and
scene would do his health all the gootl
in the world, by sending him on a nice
littlo trip to tlio provincial goal for sis
montha, where the gentle exercise
known aa "hard labor" will be used to
recuperate his moral tono. Ah Sluey
took a fancy to a largo grain door be
longing to the C. P. R., at Port Haney, nnd he also took tho door. Liko
a certain athletic gentleman known to
the admiring world as Samson, Sluey
walked oil'with the grain door on his
shoulders as Samson did with thu gates
of Gaza. Tho door was used by tbu
Chinaman and his ''chuma" as a table,
aud did splendidly until Mr. Frank
Devlin, llm vigilant detective pf tho C.
P. 1. Co., discovered it on Friday,
and had the interesting Sluey arrested.
Thu distriot court, Oapt. Pittendrigh,
disposed of the case tin- morning at tho
oourt lmuao in this oity, sentencing the
Celestial tu bix months' imprisonment.

Holden, t ho well known florist, brought
to Tub Columbian ofiico to-dtty a banket of fresh-cut garden flowers, with
the dew still sparkling on them, 41 varieties in all. Prettier flowers were never

Hagils or Htggeu.
The question as to tho right spelling
of the word haggis is exciting a good
do_'I of publio interest. On one side
wo have an Englishman spelling lltu
word '-haggess," quoting as his authority an American namod Webster, whom
he asserts to bo ihe Canadian authority
on words. On the other side wo hnvo
a Scotchman, born and bred in Caledonia, and ''raised" on ''hnggis,'' oatmeal, bannocks o' barley meal and
otber Scotch edible, and a student of
all Scotland's writers, spelling it "haggis." lt may be cited ns conclusive
proof of the lattor's correctness that tho
famous Scotch writers who spelt it tho
latter way, are, T. Cnrlylo. Robert
Burns, Walter Scott, Allan Cunningham, James Hogg, the Etterlck Shepherd, Dugald Stewart, Professor Wilson, Hugh Miller, Thomas Campbell,
David Hume, Protestor Blackie,
Henry MoKeiiale, Tytler, the historian, and a host of other celebrated
Scots, it does seem n littlo comical to
have u foreigner not up and autocratiso
on tho spelling of such a dialect as tho
Scottish Doric; hut, "u little uonsonBo
now and then," eto. A subscription
has been started wherewith to purchase tho local stair of Truth n dictionary, a "Cobbetts' English grammar,"
and "Smith on the art of proof reading." In attempting to uso a "big"
word on Saturday, IVufA spelt the
word '-psychical" this way, "psychtul,"
nnd not content with (lint, it must on
Sunday morning spell "theoretical"
"theoritlcal" in tbo editorial column,
too; nnd aa if t--at wero not enough,
this paper, whoso library contains only
dictionaries and cyclopedias, spells
"voluptuous," "voluptlous" Tho
Truth local staff may be big men, "but
a weo coat tits them." Thu habitual
uso of ponderous words and uncommon
expressions is an infallible sign of ignorance and conceit. Addisonian simplicity is what a newspaper wants, not
tho ravings of Bombastes Furioso, or a
tyi o "fresh1' from tho "caso" and badly troubled with schinooephalus.

Two aldermen nro to bo elected tor
tbo threo last named wards.
Mr. T. Cunningham, M. V. P., was
voted to tiio chair und presided at tho
meeting during which the candidates
cxprotscd their views.
Mayor Townsend first spoko and assured the audience that if oleoted he
would givo tho affairs of tho city his
best attention.
Mr. J. C. Brown followed and said
among oilier ilnngB that wo ought to
encourago peoplo to como hero by of.
faring inducements of a substantial
kind, making tho city attractive and
an eligible pi .co for the establishment
of moro email freehold homes, Theso
small freehold homes were tho truest
indication of a city's solidity nud prosperity, and they were tho surest sign
of progress. Now Westminster haa
been sweeping along the path of progress lately in a manner tlmt warrants
Ihe expectation tli.it .she will soon rival
in wealth and importance s-ine of tho
lirst cities of thu Dominion, If ho
were returned n^ mayor nf this city ho
would faithfully fullill all tbo promises
ho had made ou tho city's improvement. He would do bis best for
Westminster. Ho did nut intend lo
indulge in ik pi;i:i 'ind canvass nt all as
he waa averse to that manner of doing
business, and did not think it necessary. The reason why ho had submitted to nomination was that twu
gontlemen had como to him and told
him that Mayor Townsend had positively rofused to run for tho mayoralty
for a smaller salary than 82,000, and
aud that ho was practically out of tho
con tost, Ilo (ttio spctikor) thought
that salary much to high ; tho city of
Toronto until a year or two ago had
paid its mayor only §2,000. H0
thought Lho ciiy would do admirably
well to start ut 81,000 a yoar for the
mayor's salary.
Mayor Townsend then took lho platform and askod Mr. Brown's authority
for the statements he Imd made about
the mayor's salary. Ho said no one
had any right to make such representations. Mr. Brown said he would bo
satisfied with 81000, but if he (the
speaker) got tho position ho would take
$2000 uiul nothing less. Mr. Brown
bud mentioned what he would do on
tho sewerage, streets, sidewalks nnd
other works, but ho could say that tho
present council hud done its duty well;
thoy had kept abreast, of tho times in
all works, and lho speaker had also
dono his very best to koop up with all
that was boing transacted for the city'a
benefit. Thero wus no personal animus between him and Mi. Brown, only
ho (tho apeaker) ahould endeavor to
soo us mnny ratepayers as possible.
Tho wholo question so far as ho could
sou hinged on the matter of tho salary.
Mr. W. A, Duncan iteppod forward
and addressed tho mcoting, saying that
ho was ono oftho two persons who had
pointed out to Mr. Brown thu adviai-
bility of hifl running for mayor on the
grounds thntMayorTnwnsond had distinctly f-tatcd to hiin that ho would not
contest tho chair for less than 82000
per annum. In his opinion it wna the
duty of the old council to settle tho
question of tho mayor's salary. However, tho ratepayers woro not in favor
of paying the mnyor more than 81000,
which in his opinion was quite onough.
Tho city would bo doing very woll  if
it paid 81000. Under the circumstances be thought the city ought to
look around for somebody elso to fill
tho mayoral chair. Mr. J. C. Blown
had been buggostcd and ho thought
Mr. Brown would make an excellent
mayor. Mr. Brown at first did not
want to run and he was surprised to
hear lhat botb wero nominated to-day
as he thought Mr. Townsend had as
good as retired.
Mr, Marshal Sinclair was next vociferously called upon to speak, but refused to do bo as none of the other
aldermen wero present.
Major Tuwuscnd rose to say that
Air. Curtis had brought in a notico of
motion ta deal with the mayoral stipend, but had withdrawn it as it was
fouud (hat the present council had
nothing to do with tho salary of t noxt
year's mayor.
Thero being no other speakers the
meeting adjourned.
TIM Rimilrd Frelabt Mmlille.
Mr. S. G. Fulton, assistant general
freight agont of tho Northern Pact tie,
arrived over by lho Olympian last
evening tn completo arrangements for
the handling of Oanadinn bonded
freight fur Victoria affected by the recently issued ordera-in-counoil. To-day
Mr. Fulton will interview steamboat
uud business men, and he will then do
nil in bis power to still make the service rendered by the Northern aa effective as possible under tho circumstances. Whilo hoping for the best,
Mr. Fulton is of tho opinion that if the
obnoxious order is not suspended the
excellent servico which has been rendered to Victoria by this road in tho
past ennnot be given; as the division of
the bonded from the regular freight in
transit to Victoria, and tho additional
and unnecessary oxponso thereby on-
tailed must eventually fall on tho Viotoria merchants. Should tho order bo
maintained, despite Victoria's protest,
he thinks howover thnt u strong feeling
.wilt be created against thu 0. P. R,
which will re-act in favor of tho Northern.— Saturday's Colonist.
The Steamer Delaware
A lottor has been received from Mr.
W. A. Russell, steamboat inspector, by
Capt. Insley, of the steamer Delaware,
expressing thorough satisfaction with
tho result of iho trial trip made the
other day, and recommending its acceptance from thu Vancouver Foundry
and Machine Works, which lirm had
the contract for the machinery. Tho
trip was made as far as Port Mo.dy.
Going up sho steamed slowly, and
everything working well, faster tiniu
was made as far a3 Hastings, whero
her engines were tosted in various
ways. From there back to tho Vancouver Foundry and Machine Works
very fast time was made, and tho Delaware sailed liko a bird. Mr. Russell
ami Mr. Johnson, master mechanic of
tho C. P. It., wero ou board, aud both
were highly pleased with her work,
Capt. InBley is satisfied ho has now tho
f.ist est steamer on tho Fruser river.
The Delaware is now ready for her
route. The success of her equipment
will recommend tho Vancouver linn to
ship builders or vessel owners havitg
need of similar services.— News-Advei'r
