In thn c niidi'iiee of thoso trusted with
tho conduct  of tho  public business,
i Evory step ia taken under the ohaerva*
"fftio» nf an intelligent and watchful
people and iihestnto of union, is known
from duy In day, and suggestions as to
needed legislation find an earlier voice
than thnt which apeaks  in   these annual communications of tho president
to congreBa."   The mesB-jge then pro*
ceedeato congratulate lhe  country on
its continued  good relations and correspondence with other governments,
find welcomed  the  delegates to the
Pan-American  and  Maritime confer-
once.   It said,   in referenco to the
Chineso   quest hm,    that  while  the
country's supreme  interests demand
tho exclusion of n  Inboring element
which experience has shown to he incompatible with its social life, all steps
to cumpnss the imperative need ahould
be accompanied with a recognition of
the claims of thoso strangers now law*
fully iimnng us, to   humane and just
treatment,"   Tho president then says:
"On the part of the government of the
Dominion   of   Canada,     an    f-fi»rt
hits  heen   apparently   mado  during
the season just   ended   to    admin*
isior 1-iwB and re-rulations applicable to
the lisheriea with ns tittle   friction ns
possible, and temperate representations.
In respect to cases of undue hardship
or nf harsh interpretations, Ihey have
been, in most cases, met with incisures
of trim, itory relief.   It is trusted that
tho attainment of our just rights under
existing treaties, and in virtue of the
concurrent lo-zislatioti of  tho two contiguous countries, will not be long deferred, and thnt nil existing onuses of
difference may be  ot)uit.ib)y adjusted.
I recommend that provision  be made
by an  international   agreement for
visibly mavkjna out  the boundary between iho Unitod St'ttoa  and Canada
hi tho narrow, channels that join the
(front hikes.     The  conventional lino
llioroin, traced by  thu north* wo-turn
bMiiiiltiry Mii'vey years   ngo, is not id
all ciaoa readily ascertainable for tho
settlement nf jurisdictional questions."
The  presidedt  thon culls  for an en*
largomeut of the list  of extmdttnhte
offences between Great Britain and the
United States, tliacuases tbe country's
relations to Cuba,  Porto Rico, Peru
and Portugal, and favors the Nicarsgurt
cnnal and Belgium'™   efforts to abolish
slave trade.   It expresses satisfaction
with the country's  curdial relations
with Germany and  Persia,  and con-
gratulatcs Hayti on the ending of tho
internal    disturbances.     It suggest}
special conventions   for determining
questions of naturalization; welcomes
iJin_.il ns a now  sister  republic, and
calls attention to thn general prosperous condition of the  country.    The
message takes up  tho secrotary-irnas-
utvr'e report and calls for tho immediate attention of congress to ihe
Inrgo actual and  anticipated surplus.
Ic declaims againat   loaning publio

Bpoits used in arls  nud in inanufnc
tnres.   The president Bays the Anticipations which havo   accompanied the
coinage and tbe ur-o of the silver dollar
have not been   realized,  and argues
ngninst a further increase of tho present
rate of coinage.     Revolting to lhe
Chinese question  tho menage says;
''The enforcement of the Chinese exclusion act has boen found very difficult
on tho oorth-western frontier.   Chinamen landing at Viotoria find it oasy to
pass over tho bordor owing to the impossibility, with the forco ut command-
revenues the seal fisheries make a large
annual contribution. The appropriation for education Bhould neither be overlooked nor .tinted. He
recommends a liberal provision for
all soldiers or sailors of thu civil wnr
now suffering from diBeaEes or casualties, whether contracted iu service or
not. In regard to the reform of the
civil service, ho says it will make no
safe or satisfactory advance until the
prceeut law und its equal administration nto well established in tho couB
deuce of the people. He cluses 11 long
discussion on the negro questiuu by
aaying the colored mus-Cd t-hould be
protected in all their relations to tho
federal government. Tho President
in conclusion says: "The legislation
which I havo suggested it is sincerely
believed will promote the peace und
honor of our country and the sccurit*-
nud prosperity ot tho people"

other celestial body which is not
generally known to the scientific
world.
RKTunNlXCt to tho question of tho
civic nominations, wo havo for mayor W. B. Townsend and J. O. Brown.
Mr. Townsend bus made a fairly
good mayor for tbo lust live or six
months, having been returned by
aoolamation to fill tho position on
the resignation of ex-Mayor Hendry. Sir, Townsend comes forward
for re-election on tho declaration,
over bis own signature, thut he is a
"candidate for the position on the
oondition that the salary is attached
to it." The salary Mr. Townsend
refers to is, in his own words, that
which "the charter empowers the
council to pay the mayor, $2,000
per year." Wo lmve already approved in these columns of the principle of paying tho mayor of this
city a salary in the future, and have
also intimated- that the mayor of
Westminster should be put upon
the same footing as tho mayors of
the other principal oities of tho province. Not a few of the ratepayers
consider that this is too ambitious—
and costly—a view to take of tin*
matter, that wo should be more modest and pay our mayor §1,000 a
year to begin with. We ure free to
admit thut there is wisdom in tho
suggestion, while believing that the
royal city must vf-ry soon assume
the samo responsibility as to tbe
mayor's salary as her two sister
cities.
Mr. Brown is understood to hold
that $1,000 will do very well for.the
mayor'B salary to begin with, and.
according to his remarks and those
of a supporter at the nominations
yeserday, .this opinion on Mr.
Brc-vn's part, as distinguished from
the larger ambition of Mayor Town
sen*', was tho principal reason of
Ins (Mr. Brown's) nomination and
accptanco as a candidate for tho
ma; otalty. Without arguing any
furt her on the question us to whether fie mayor of Westminster is on-
titli d to—and whether tho city can
affod—a salary of $2,000 to begin
with, economy and modesty in a
can Uriato are certainly recommenda-
tioM.cr se, and Mr. Brown has
uud >i btedly this advantage over his
opj.'-r.-int in the start. Apart from
thi q cation of salary, and without
any ('uparagement of Mr. Townsond,
win , *n some respects, has proved
bin ielf a good mayor, wo are con-
vin ■ ■■' that Mr. Brown will make a
hetl ■_ chief magistrate on tbo whole
thai .[ayor Townsond, and on this
groin ' we favor his election. Asa

The Antarctic exploration craze
appears to be   again   undergoing a
revival ut the   antipodes, says   The
Colonies and India.   News of the
proposal having had tiino to spread
to Northern Europe—where   thero
appears   to   be   quite a plethora of
both Arctic and Antnrctio polar enthusiasts—volunteers  are    coming
forward from tho Scandinavian direction who are ready  and   willing
to hazard tho  exploration  of   tho
great southern ultima thule.   The
Australian  Antarctic   exploration
committee has its headquarters in
Melbourne, and at tho present timo
it has under its serious consideration
an offer from   Commodore   Svend
Foyn,   a    well-known   Norwegian
whaler.   The hardy whaler  is   not
by any means all sentiment and geographical enthusiasm; ho proposes
in a reasonably   practical   way   to
combine business with scientific research, und to this ond suggests the
employment of  two  steamships on
tbe proposed excursion to the Antarctic regions.    While duly making
careful note of the land   which he
might be able to  distinguish   from
icebergs in the southern   region-.,
Commodore Foyn would   keep   his
weather eye on the "spouters," with
a view to bringing back with hiin to
Melbourne a couple of steamer-loads
of spermaceti oil.   To show that litis not bound   by   any   sentimental
rules,   the   Norwegian   commodore
will permit the exploration commit
tee to find the two steamers   necos-
Bury for tho   proposed   expedition,
and he also announces his readiness
to allow the Victorian   government
to give him a snm   equal   to   $60,-
000 towards defraying tlie expense-
of  the   expedition.    The   Colonies
aud India,   while   not   wishing to
thruw ridicule upon thn   promoter*
of the proposed   Antnrctio   oxpi <li-
tion, com*.tiers tbat the zeal and   lie
funds would   be   much   better expended in tho "compar'itively bound
less fields for useful  explorative enterprise on the Australian continent
itself, in Now Guinea, the Solomon
Islam's,   and   other   extensive and
naturally rich conntrios   scattered
about the  Pacific."   Nevertheless,
our cotemporary opines  that   Commodore Foyn "will   probably have
the opportunity afforded bim of disporting himself and his merry sailors
among the whales of the   Southern
Indian  and   Pacific   ocean..    In a
round trip ulong the fringes of the
Antarctic glaciers he can fill up his
steamers with enough oil to make a
handsome fortuno and   send  him
back to his Norwegian home   with
the popular title of the   'Spermaceti
King/ und  probably   the   coveted
dignity of being able to hang   F, ll.
G. S, after his namo.   He will dot
down a few fresh   capes  and   pro*
nionfcori33 for the delectation of the
Australian   Antarctic   exploration
committee, and geographical enthusiasts will he so much   tho   wiser for
tho expedition.   But there   will be
no practical or useful result of the
voyage.   That may be put down as
a foregone conclusion, and v.e   reiterate what we have already hiu'ed
at—that we consider it quite a pity
that whetever inclination there may
be in tho colonies   to  support   explorative expeditions i.. not directed
towards some more sensible qijnrtSr

Tin. present year, remarks st   co-
temporary, will ho one long memorable for its disastrous eccentricities
in weather.   Long ruins and   disastrous floods svero experienced in the
Atlantic states and in Ghina in tho
early part of summer, und tho loss of
life and   property   was   appalling.
Brought in the North western stotos
has reduced many   farmers  to the
point of starvation,   und   in   somo
other sections of  the  eountry   has
greatly  lessened   the    crop.     In
Pokier  province, China, thousands
havo died   lately   through   famine,
caused   by   drought, and a famine
amongst millions of people is threatened.   Strange to say, only a few
hundred miles north of tho drought
stricken    province    thousands  of
square milos are flooded  and  hundreds of families have beon drowned
by the rise of  tho  Yangste river,
which has heen swollen by  unseasonably heavy  rains.   China  has
suffered also horn excessive autumnal  heat,  ahd  in  the  Oanadian
Northwest July temperatures wero
frequent in October.   In  contrast
with this weather, Montana  had a
great mow storm in September, and
a few days later a large part of Austria was covered  with  snow  and
building, even buried by it; and to
crown the record  of  extraordinary
phenomena for nine days a frightful
snowstorm raged in Texas and New
Mexico at the close of October and
early in November, attended by loss
of much life and  property.   Between droughts and rains, untimely
frosts, nnd unseasonable  heats, the
Johnstown and the Ohinese floods
and Iho great  Texan  blizzard, the
year seems (o havo been ono of most
exceptional oharaoter.   Its  phenomena and their possible relations to
solar influences will  no donbt re-

rest of the world.
Mrs. Mackay, the "Bonanza
Queen," has, writes tho London correspondent of the Manchester Courier, provided, during her absence, the
public of London with a gratuitous
entertainment of the most diverting
nature. At her open window in
Buckingham FalaceOate isa wonderful green parrot which attracts hundreds of people every day to hear
him talk. The crowd on Sunday
was so great that the policeman had
to request the poople to move on.
"Move on" echoed the parrot, to tlio
intense delight of the mob. "Folly,
what is o'clock 1" asked a man.
The parrot, pretending to look at tho
olook, cried out in answer, "Half-
past five," and he was right. "How
old are you Polly!" "Don't know.
How old are yout" was thu
answer, whioh of course provoked
great merriment, in which tho par
rot joined. Asked what day of tho
week it was, the wretch hopped
about screaming, "Sunday. Oo to
prayers. Ora pro nobis," and foil
into a paroxysm of laughter, which
was quite contagious.

PERSIA'S SEVEN CLIMATES.
Plane. Whioh Blval Hade,  ln Point ol
Torrid Comfort.
"Before I left, the United Btates,"
writes a traveler, "aome people said to
me that Persia was a very hot and
unhealthy place. I pointed with a
triumph to a statement of one of our
ministers, published in the Century, to
tl." effect tnat the climate was delight-
ful, and stole upon your senses gradually, like the zephyr, laden with the
fragrance of myriads of flowers, or
words to that effect. Alas, I have heen
sadly disabused. There ls a Persian
proverb as old as the hills which hath
in that "Iran haftx Utun dared" (l.e.
"Persia has seven climates") and,
as most proverbs, tt is true. Thus,
while along the shores of the Caspian,
hundreds and hundreds of miles in
length, the climate is moist, fever laden,
oppressive ln summer, up in the moun*
tains in the Maianderan district in the
north it Is quite raw. In the central
portion, up ln the plateau four thousand feet above the sea level, from
Teheran into Isphan and way beyond,
tho climate on the whole is mild and
moderate, with the exception of the
lato summer and early fall, when dys.
entery, Intermittent fever and cholera
prevails. In the south, in Faristan,
Arablstan, snd Luristan, and ln a still
higher degree along the Persian gulf,
Busheer, and Mohammerah Included,
the heat ls extreme, and It is said that
there are places there which oome right
after that other place that must not ba
mentioned to ears polite, In point ot
torrid oomfort. In Bender Abbas, for
instance, the inhabitants amuse themselves during the heated term by lying
atill, in the airiest of costumes, in tho
cellar, whilo ono servant continually
pours water on them and another one
act3 as a mobile perpetuum In keeping
the fan going."
Intelligent Gratitude of a Dog,
"You may call it Instinct, If you
like, but I Bhall insist that it is Intelligence that makes some brutes behave
ao sensibly as they do," said a gentleman in conversation with a reporter,
and then the gentleman added:
"I've had all the proof I want of It
to-day. In the dooryard of an unoccupied house adjoining mine twelve little
puppies uttered their flrst yelp yester-
day morning. Their mother, an old
black and white mongrel, with an eye
to the safety of her large new family,
took them one by one and laid them in
a narrow area, down by one of the cellar windows. One of the panes happened to be out of the window, however, and beforo night evory ono of the
puppies had crawled through the
opening and fallen to the cellar floor
some six feet below.
"Next morning we missed them,
and from the whining of the mother,
su pposrd tl it the puppies were all dead
on the hai'. cellar floor. But, later In
tho slay, ths maternal brute set up sueh
a pawing and howling at the cellar
winilow that I made up my mind there
was some :-uppy life below. Accordingly I liro e into the cellar and, to my
surprise, found eight of the little
family of dogs still alive and kicking.
One by ono I took them up and placed
them in the dooryard grass for the
mother to take wherever sho might
choose, and one by one she laid them
back in the area of the broken cellar
window.
"This compelled me to stop up the
hole in the broken pane, to prevent
the puppi 's from crawling through
again. Then, when lt was all done,
the old mother brute, beside herself as
she wsb wii U Joy, and anxious to devote
every second ot her timo to the recovered puppies, crawled up laboriously
out of the area, and, leaving the Utter
alone, came wriggling and sneezing,
and all hut laughing up to me, a
stranger, and licked my hand as I held
It down to pat her head.
"No, that's not instinct. That is as
plain and as intelligent a 'Thank you'
as a human being ever uttered."

Ab Immense Age.

KING BOMBA.
A PrlnwUng Who Gamlslml Away Itls
',.   Last Dollar and Committed Stslclsle.
Prince Molistani, a member of a well-
known Neapolitan family, has committed suicide after seeing his name
posted as a defaulter at his club, because of his failure to pay his losses at
gambling, says tho Argonaut. The
nobility of tho Molistani family Ib of
comparatively recent creation,   King
"Bomba" of Naples was very freehanded In his creation of titles, the
number of persons whom he raised to
princely or noble rank being something quite -extraordinary. It is reported that on one occasion he pacified
a turbulent mob of insurgent lazzaroni,
who, bent on violence, had assembled
beforo tho royal palaco, by suddenly
appearing on the balcony and shouting
out at tho top of his voice: "Basta,
basta: sieto tuttl marches!!" (Enough,
enough; I create you all marquises.)
As tho groat French novelist, Alexander Dumas, very rightly remarked,
Naples is so over-crowded with princes
and nobles that it is more distingue to
be even a peddler there then one of tho
former. King "Bomba" was exceedingly kind to his personal adherents,
especially whon he was able to be so
without disbursing money. Among
his favorite attendants was a young
man who filled the humble yet confidential oflice of chiropodist. So highly
did the monarch appreciate his services
that he conferred upon him tho title of
Prince Molistani, On the expulsion of
the Bourbons from Naples, the newly
created princo followed the present
ex-king Into exile and made his way to
Paris, where he soon becamo a
thorough boulovardler. Gradually ho
dropped out of the moro reputable
clubs and became known as one who
walked in somewhat shady paths. It
is reported that he was an unsuccessful
rival of his countryman Prince Col-
onna, for tho hand of MIbs Eva
Mackay. The chief revenue wliich
supports many of the Paris clubs is a
tax derived from gambling. Tho custom is, when a man does not pay his
debts, to write bis name on a piece of
whito paper and to paste it on tho
mirror, in the card-room, When Princo
Molistani came into the club on a
recent afternoon he walked up to tho
mirror, looked closely at the name,
then picked up his hat, walked away,
without saying a word to anybody, and
went home. Then he put a revolver to
his right temple and blew out his
brains. He gambled away the last
dollar of a fortune of 3100,000, inherited six years ago, and has sines
lived like a man with au income of
9100,000 a year, ou his wits. He was
nicknamed "Molisse des Cannes," and
was a fragile, delicate fellow, with tho
haggard faco of a confirmed card-
player who had lost more than he had
made. He was found dead beside*a*
littlo table on which were letters to
creditors and friends. Among the let.
ters was one to the ex-king and queen
of Naples.

Something Abont Amsterdam.
As a people the Butch aro not hand-
tme, There are handsome types, but
they havo come in with Flemish immigrations or by accidental' admixture
with some of the blonde tribes., of nortii
Germany. They are evidently -not tho
old Batavians recognized in history 100
years beforo the Christian era, and, by
a singular persistence of descent, perpetuated till the present day. This
perseverance of ancient types through
thousands of years of pestilence, of
submergence, ot desolating wars, of
internecine contests, of successive immigrations, is ono of tho marvels of
history. Tho Flemish type is characterized by length of nose, breadth of
forehead, smallness of chin and short-
of face. Tho true Dutch type hns
length of nose, narrowness of forehead,
thinness of feature, gauntness of body
and often considerable length of limb.
ThCBe details are subject to modifications. The types more nearly approaching lt are those often seen in Denmark.
You can wander for days through
the streets, museums and publio places
of Amsterdam, Harlem, Tho Ilaguo
and Rotterdam and not meet a handsome woman, young or old, unless she
Is a foreigner. Tho climate, like that
of Boston, proves moro trying to the
gentler sex. This absence of personal
attractiveness In young women and
girls is not without a certain pathos.

tache of the Chinese Legation corrob-
' orates this statement. He says there
are sacred fish kept ln some of tho
palaces in China that are even olden
than any of those In Russia. 'Goldfishes have been known to have belonged to one family in this country
for over fifty years.

What an Egg Will Do.
For burns and scalds nothing is
more toothing than the white of an
egg, which may be poured over the
wound. It Is softer as a varnish than
colodlon, and, being always at hand
can be applied, It is also moro cooling
than the sweet oil and cotton which
was formerly supposed to be the surest
application to allay the smarting pain.
It is the contact with the air which

but formerly well known In Washington, sho Issued invitations for luncheon

Botween Damascus and Jerusalem is
said to be a tribe ot about threo thousand Israelites, who havo probably been
there since the beginning of the Christian ora. They have neither city nor
town, but live In tents, and speak the
11'brew language among themselves,
but use the Arabian with strangers,
slightly, with or without sugar, and
swallowed at a gulp, it tends, by its
emollient qualities, to lessen the Inflammation of tho stomaeh and intestines, nnd, by forming a transient coating on those organs, to enable naturo
to resume her healthful sway over a
diseased body. Two, or nt most three
eggs per day would be all that Is required in ordinary cases, and since egg
Is not merely inedtctne, but food as
well, the lighter tho diet otherwise and
tho quieter the patient ls kept, tho more
.crtnlu nnd rapid Is tho recovery.

Tho remarks of Aid. Cunningham in

valunblo in many nays. Aid. Cumng-
hara is an authority on the subject,
and his opinion that this so-called

concurs with that of a gentleman celebrated in quits another department of
life, namely Victor Hugo. Headers

wonderful chapter on detnlits nnd the

worth reading for the sake of ita practical facts and scientitic research.

Ail estrangement of lovers was the
causo of tho sad suioido of Peter Cameron in Victoria on Saturday night,
from drinking laudanum. Cameron
had fallen irrevocably in lovo with a
widow named Mrs. McDonald and they
had become engaged, bnt a quarrel
arose. Cameron circulated damaging
stones about his former lovo, but
finally repented aud sought a reconciliation. Mrs. McDonald would uot re
new the engagement nnd Cameron
choosing death rather than rejection,
took u doao of laudanum at a gateway
ou Quadra street from which he was
taken to St. Joseph's hospital where
he died in two hours, his la*t words
being "Goodbye, my darling."

Six mouths ngo when an entorprlsing
merchant tinnouuoed his intention of
upeniug a store atthe corner of Clinton

disposed t-> laugh nt hia audacity, but
since then the business has prospered
and tho enterprise is au established
buccesi. The fact that tho opening
fur business houses in the upper portion
of Iho city is continually improving, is
fully appreciated by Messrs N. 0. Me*
Keen nnd Son, and these gentlemen
nre now building a fine store on the
corner of Melbourne and St. Andrew's

that the new enterpnso will meet with
all the success it deserves.
AiaHltnn Exploration,
The lirst iiowa of tho government
expedition for tlio survey of Alaska
has re-iched St. Luuis in a letter from
John E. McGrnth, ono of the chiefs of
the explorers. McGrath's parly has
navigated tho Yukon river further
than any stenmer ever went before,
nnd will during tho win ter travel
through nn unexplored land. The
Turner party has already entered an
unexplored country. McGrath's let-
tor was written 200 miles above St.
Michaels. Ho says: "The Yukon is 22
miles wide at its mouth. The natives
along the river live in wretched hovels
Polygamy is practiced iu some settlements. Tho people nro covered wilh
vermin. Game and fish nre plentiful.
Magnificent mountains are in Bight.
Thero are luxuriant forests, tho grass
is green, flowers are in bluom, and the
weather is very warnij but 10 inches
below tho surface the ground i$ frozen
bard, even as deep as 25 feet. Mosquitoes abound." McGrnth s.iys Turner
steamed 40 miles up the Porcupine
river. There is not a stick left nuw at
Fort Yukon, and the miners aro miserably poor. An Indian killed a, miner
at Koejubuk river, and a big band of
miners travelled a thousand miles and
lost a whole season's work in order to
hang the murderer. Heavy ruins have
hindered mining operations. The Mc-
Grath parly had entered tho British
possessions.
The Old Lnml* nnd the New.
Senator Mc Innes concluded his series
of lectures Inst niglit to a fair and appreciative audience in tlto old Presbyterian church. The senator, to use his
own expression, galloped his hearers
ovor Switzerland, a portion of France,
England, Scotland und Ireland, and
concluded with some well-weighed
comparisons of tho old lands with thia
virgin Dominion of ours und particularly our own province. Tlio honorable lecturer showed thnt tho European countries ho mentioned, as well
aa the British Isles, had in some cases
altogether, and in others nearly, reached the limit of their population and development—in short they were finished
countries ; but that tho Dominion of
Canada, with an area nearly equal to
the wholo of Europe and greater than
that of tho United States, being yet
in its infancy comparatively, had a
glorious futuro before it, and ifs six
millions population would yet be two
hundred millions, whilo British Culumbia could aupport twenty fivo
millions much better than some European countries sustained their quota.
Ono point which Senator Malunea made
in his lecture, ouuecountof itslocnl interest ia worthy of special notice. Comparing llie entrance into the harbor of
Liverpool—tho chief toiport uf Great
Britain and of tho world—over the
Mt'tS'.'y bur, with the approach into
Weatmlnster harbor* by the mouth uf
tho Frusta river, tlie leoturer Mated
openly nud challenged contradiction of his statement, l hat the
entrance of the Fruser river today was superior to that of the mouth of
the Mersey going in to Liverpool ,and million- had been expended upon the latter,
whereas only a trifle hud been yet bid
nut in improvements on the Fraser Bund*
heads. This significant statement was
enthusiastically applauded by the audience. The lecture was pleasantly diversified hy humorous recitals and was
replete with instruction and lofty patriotism. A standing vote of thanks was
given at its close, tu whicli the senator
appropriately responded.

The case of Guiohon vs McNeeley,
et, al, all of Ladners, came up in the
supreme court this afternoon at 2:30
o'clock, Mr, Justice McCreight pro
Biding, Tho aubject of tho dispute is a
culvort, A ditoh was built a few yearn

by Laurent Guichon, the plaintiff, who
claims the exclusive use of the ditch on
the ground of a grant from the council. Tho said ditcb having been found
unable to carry off nil the water has
been broadened and deepened. Thos.
MoNeeley got permission from the
oouncil to build a culvert from thu
east to the west sido of the main road,
and Guiohon claims that Baid oulvcrt
caused hia ditch to overflow. Tho
damages arc placed nt $2,000. E. A,

CRIMINAL COUBT.
Tho case of Thomas Mooro, oharged
with entering a house after dark with
intent tu commit a felony, cumo up
under the speedy trials act this morning before His Honor Judgo Bolo.
Tlm prisoner, who was not quito bo
defiant nnd loquacious as whon he appeared in tho police court, pleaded
"not guilty."
Robert Keary, ono of tho proprietors
of tho Eickhoff House, took tho witness etiind and gave the same testi
meiiy as in the police court. The
prisoner wan uui a guest at the hotel,
and ho had been ordered away frum
the house. Simeon Huff, the mau
from whom the goods woro stolon,
stated that the door of his room in the
hotel wns usually left open, and that
he hnd not noticed the clothes the
ovening of lho robbery. All ho knew
was lhat tliu clothing was gone, and
thoso produce.! in court were hiB.
Oflicer Dominy, who made the arrest,
nho recapitulated hia polico court testimony,
Tho prisoner said he had beon looking for a bed (hat niaht, and cross-
examined the ollicor nnd witnesses
with very commendable pertinacity,
but to ltttb effeot. His honor found
the prisoner guilty on the evidence
produced, which ho said was overwhelming, and adjourned the oourt for
flvo minutes to consider the sentence.
Prisoner hnd nothing to say, but aBked
his honor to be as light on him as he
could.
Resuming court again his honor hogan his speech by saying ho was glad
to see a representative of tho press
present (Tub Columbian), for these
trials and sentences wont forth on tho
winga of tho press nnd woro disseminated in all parts of the land, und did
immeasurable good in checking crime
nnd inducing tuch men ns tho prisoner
to pause and think before thoy committed felonies.
The crime of which tho prisoner
stood convicted was one whioh resembled what iu London aud other large
cities is culled sneak thieving, more so
than the daring nnd moro determined
crime of the burglar. It was a despicable crime. Large numbers of
workingmen And it necessary to be out
at night, at the docks, on tho steamers,
and other work, and it is terrible to
think that thoso mou should not bc
able to leave their lodgings without
the fear of the saoak thief creeping in
and stealing their goods. Tho dom a
of hotels arc loft open for tho accommodation of those working men. Itis
nut for people tj.be going nbout like
jailers with thetr property under bolls
and bars. The property of the people
is in tho cure ot the law, and by it in
protected from euch attacks us tho
prisoner has mado. Tho law tikes
cnre to punish such brcaohes of the
peace in a suitable way. This offence is
a must serious one, and if not checked
with a stern hnnd would apuedily reduce society tu a st ite of barbarism, in
which every man's hand would bo
against hia neighbor's. In New WeBtmlnster this sort of crimo, ho wna
happy to any, had boon rare, uutl almost unknown, but he felt it bis duty
to punish thia offence in such » manner that those who were likely to commit tho felony should ho inclined to
think that New Westminster "as uot
a very profitable field for lho prosecution of such enterprises.
Ho bad it in hss powor to send tho
prisoner up for seven years, but it wns
imt his intention to exercise that severity. If, however, he found that such
cases were on the increase in this city,
he would ceriaiuly mote out tho full
penalty of tho law, seven years, to
some ol thu offenders, as he w>a deter
mined to stop this crime in New Westminster. Tho workingmen at hotels
must be protected; it was abominable
that they should have to feel a senso
of insecurity inn, city so well guarded
by ita police, and ho wuuld mark his
ni use of the seriottsuesi of the crime
by sending the prisoner tu gaol for
three years at hard labor.
The case of VV, Scalen, ou a similar
offence, was remanded until tho Oth
