Canadian route soems to havo been
selected because it will furnish a shelter line than any other that could be

receivo considerable aid from tho provincial authorities uf Ontario and
Quebec.

He 1TIII Kihini
Something of a sensation has been
created by the abrupt (light of a young
clerk for many years in the employ of
a wholesale merchant in this city, A
few days ago ho left for Nanaimo with
accounts to be collected from tradesmen thoro. It is tho custom of Nn*
naimo tradesmen to pay their bills juat
after tho miners have boon paid by the
Vuncuuver coal oompany. By lome
reason not generally known, the minora woro nut paid on lho usual day,
and the tradesmen consequently did
not settle, and thus tho accounts were
brought buck to tho city. At night he
gave tho koy of tho store to another
employ eo, ssying that he waa going to
Saanich and might not bo down oarly
in the morning. When it was found
that ho had gono, a membarof tho firm
went across the sound, and a telegram
wns received this afternoon, stating
that the fleeing olerk Imd been over*
taken nt Portland and would come
back on Mondny and make everything
straight. As ia tho case, ninety-nine
time* out of a hundred, a woman ia at
the bottom of thu young nian'aosoa-
pndu, his shortage in accounts being
very littlo. It ia to be hoped that in
tho future tho present lesson will be of
use.— Saturday's Times.

EDMUND YATES1  CABLE.
London, Doo. 17.—The queen not
only won the chief honors of tho show
at Islington last week, but the sold the
champion ox which had carried all before him, for the higheit price ever
paid for a fat beast. The queen's
short horn fetched 150 guineas, and
this iB reckoned equivalent to about
half a crown a pound, which ia dear
evon for chsmpion and royal beef.
THE SALISBURY8
Lord and Lady Sahabury have been
entertaining the Princess Mary and
Duke of Teck, and Princess Victoria,
thia week at Hatfield. At the end of
January Lady Salisbury will go to the
Riviera for a month to inspect progrc-s
on the villa whioh Lord Salisbury is
building from hit own plana on his
beautiful property, "Beaulieu," which
he purchased laat year and which is to
he ready for occupation next autumn.
A FLYING VISIT.
I hoar from Berlin that the Emperor
William contemplates a flying visit to
Cannes, as he wishes to see the Grand
Duke of Mecklenburg Schwerin, whose
health is failing rapidly. The grand
duke, being of the wealthiest of the
German princes, and an intimate
friend of the emperor and czar, to both
of which he ii nearly related, hia death
would be an event of political importance.
THE MARQUIS DE CAUX.
The death of the Marquia De Cuux
was very unexpected. I knew him in
Paris. Only a fortnight ago he was
looking hale and hearty, and he told
mo he thought of going to Cannes for
January and February. The Marquis
De Caux had put on flesh very npidly
of late, and it was hard to recognize in
him the slim, elegant young man who
used to lead the cotillion ao well. at
tho Tuilleries balls during the last
years of the empire. Since Patti
and he separated he has lived very
quietly in Paris, spending the moat of
his time at the jockey olub and rarely
missing a race at Lougchamps.
BUSHIBt HANGED.

POST HAN BOBBED.
London, Deo. 17.—While a poat
man waa delivering tbe mail at Hattun
Garden thia morning, he wai attacked
by three men, and resisted stubbornly,
but wu finally overpowered, not, how'
ever, until lie wu badly wounded.
Tho robben dragged him into a room,
locked him in, and then seized the
mail and decamped. It ia stated the

A well known old Caribooito named
Gabriel Mills, oame near meeting with
an untimely ond a few days ago while
mining on the Fraser river, olose to
the old Suspension bridge. He had
beon running a drift into the bank and
got in about 15 feet when the roof
caved in, oovering him with about five
feot of earth. Neil Blaok, ex-superintendent of the Cariboo road, together
with a friend, ohancing to pass close
by, had their attention called to the
antics ot Mills' dog, which was aoratoh*
ing and growling at the mouth of the
drift. Ou their coming up the little
dog disappeared into a narrow opening
and they perceived that the mine hid
caved in. While looking for the dog
they heard a muffled groan, and immediately concluded that Mills wai
buried underneath. Quickly procuring spades they proceeded to dig the
unfortunate man out, After two noun
hard work they brought him to light.
Beyond sustaining some severe bruises,
Mills was none the worse for hii experience and owes his life to hii sagacious dog.—Time s.

REPORTS.
The park committee reported recommending that the corporation take over
the fence and the agricultural shed at
Queen'i park from the B. C. Provincial Agricultural Association u the
association owes in part for these improvements and ii unable to settle with
the contractora unless the fence, etc.,
are iold and removed and the proceed!
restored to the aociety.   Recetved.
Aid. Jaquei wanted to know how it
was that the park committee came to
dispose of the agricultural society1!
property.
Aid, Cunningham rose to explain
that it was at the request of the agricultural sociejy that this was done, lt
was to assist the society and help pay
its debti. It wai the right thing that
the council ihould take over tbe ihedo
and fenco. If the society were to take
down that fence the park would be left
totally unprotected. He hoped the
oouncil would deal liberally and fairly
with the looiety ai their interoiti were
identical.
Aid. McPhaden could uot see this
and thought tho proceeding rather informal.
Aid. Cunningham again explained
the matter and said that if tho council
did not tako the fence over the society
would knock it down (the fence, not
the counoil) and sell it to-morrow.
The sense of the counoil was decidedly in favor of taking over the fence.
Aid. Cunningham said the late agricultural show at Westminster wu the
fint occasion on the whole cout at
which tho ndmistion fee wu leu than
fifty cents. The policy had been dictated by the council, not the society.
Aid. Jaquea topk exception to taking over, the buildings tn lots, and uid
the council ihould go ilow in dealing
with the matter.
Aid. Curtis thought it hardly fair
for the society to expect the city to
take back everything the society had
used.
His wonhip informed Aid. Cunningham that tho socioty could not knock
down the fence, u it wu city property.
Aid, Calbick uid that tbe fence
had been put up temporally and
thought the society hid a right to take
it down and sell it.
Aid. Reid thought tho looiety had a
right to take it down and soil it, at
they had put it up on some luch un*
dcratonding.
Aid, Jaquei moved and Aid. McPhaden seconded that the fence ihould
be uppraiied and the value of it paid
tho society.
Aid. Ourtii uid that if tho aocioty

Tuesday Evening. Dec. 11. ISSt.
Thk ratepayers of the royal city
have againsounded tho for ward march
by passing, yesterday, by a respectable majority of tbo votes cast, the
two by-laws for park and pleasure
grounds improvements. The citizens, it is safo to say, will never regret thoir action in these mutters.
Tho very com mei id able commencement made last year towards providing the city with a park and exhibition and recreation grounds has
enhanced our prestige as a city both
in the province and abroad and
given us a status which we did not
possess before. Judiciously and
• carefully expended, in accordance
with the objects of the two by-laws,
the §30,000 which tho ratepayers
have authorized the city to borrow
will place Queen's park in a very
satisfactory condition, compared
oven with what it is at present, bo-
sides providing necessary pleasure
and recreation grounds in the west-
end, and beautifying the Crescent.
It is eminently right and proper,
and a policy of the greatest wisdom,
that, side by aide with tho rapid
material progress of tho city, we
should provide health and pleasure
resorts for the people—places which
art shall combine with nature in
rendering both useful and beautiful
—where not only the body but the
mind may find repose, relaxation
and inspiration—occasional relief
for the whole being from the dull
routine and tho wearing strain of
business and everyday occupations,
Any city which has arrived at the
stage wliich this city has reached
must provide these facilities, if it
hopes to progress and prosper in the
true sense of the word, and the ratepayers havo shown their wisdom by
acting intelligently and practically
on this view, Nature bas done
much to make Westminster botli a
healthy and a beautiful city, lt is
gratifying to note that her enter
prising citizens are determined to do
their duty to the sumo laudable
ends.
TiiEitii is very little significance
in tho fact, reported elsewhere, that
a club of young French Liberals in
Montreal discussed  tho question of
annexation to the United States a
few   nights   since,  and   that  two
strong speeches were prepared for
tbe occasion nnd delivered in fuvor
of annexation.   A great deal more
significant are the conclusions of a
representative    of  a   Philadelphia
paper, who has been making a tour
of eastern Oanada to ascertain the
extent of the feeling in tho Dominion favorable to annexation.   After
visiting  various   provinces of the
Dominion and interviewing leading
men, he says :. "The result leaves no
room for doubt.   There  has  been
discontent in Ontario * there is still
discontent   in   sections of the east
and northwest;  but it is infinitesimal and is of a nature that will disappear as Ontario, discontent disappeared in the sunshine of prosperity.
Their grievances  never had the effect of impelling real Canadians to
seek relief in annexation.   Tho only
Britisli advocates of that policy today aro Goldwin Smith aud Erastus
Wiman.   The former has by his attitude on this   question   succeeded
only in curtailing his circle of admirers.   The   Utter   is   hated and
despised as a 'renegade'   Tho wiles
of the scholar and the piles of tho
speculator have, as far as could be
discovered, had tho unexpected effect of fostering loyalty to British
connection.   Tho talk is now of imperial federation • two years ago the
idea was scouted.   Patriotic leagues
are forming.   As   ho   crossed   tho
Niagara river   tlie   other  day tho
writer met numbers of young men
reading pamphlets descriptivo of tho
battlo and wearing badges inscribed,
'Lundy'h   Lane.'   The   pulpit, tho
platform and the press vio each with
tho others in inculcating patriotism.
The rapid development of material
wealth, the 'pride of possession' of
un immense land, ure beginning to
toll.    Canadians- aro satisfied to rulo
their own household and farm their
own patch.   Mr. Depew has been
misinformed.    Oanada   is   not the
•willing maiden1 described by him,
and if this country would avert the
pain of a refusal   it   will be bettor
not to ask her hand in  marriage."
Tho Philadelphia pressman, it will
bo seen, has oome to tho   only possible enlightened conclusion on tho
subject, and ho is candid about it.
If  he  had   come  farther west ho
would liave   been   strengthened in
his convictions that Oanada is not
for sale—that she is not to be had
for love or money.    Wo may not be
altogether, as an  enthusiastic  and
patriotic Vancouvorite assured   the
governor-general on his  recent visit
to the terminal city, "a people with
out a grievance," but wo nro not so
graceless and stupid as not to recognize that our lines have fallen unto
us in pleasant places, and that we
have a goodly heritage, good laws
and their impartial and  strict  enforcement, comparatively speaking
at least, a healthy, social, moral, nnd
polltloal life, an assured grand and
inspiriting   future,   and,  on  the
whole, are better off in overy re-
Now that another twelve months
is drawing to a   close, and   with it
tho end of another municipal year,
when our retiring city fathers will
be expected to givo a sort of "detailed" nccount of their stewardship,
the captious citizen, the town growler  and   the   man   who   thinks ho
knows it all, will soon be in clover,
making post-mortem   remarks   and
inventing   epitaphs   with   more of
caustic tban   tally  in   them.   We
might modify tho abovo prediction
by saying that wo supposo that the
phenomena mentioned will soon bo
witnessed.   No one can say, at any
rate, tbat the city council of 1889
bas not   beon a progressive body,
or deny tbat that is what? they were
elected for.   It may servo to throw
a veritable halo about our retiring
and expiring council to compare it
with one similar body in this  wide
Dominion,   We may even bless our
stars that wo havo had such an unapproachable   paragon   of   a   civic
board, nfter reading tho following
strictures, from tho Whitby Citron-
ick, upon the luckless and worthless
wights wbo   have   held   down the
municipal benches for the currout
year in the  pretty   littlo   Ontario
town abovo montioned.   Says the
Chronicle; "Some people have complained that wo nre too hard on tlie
town council in rating them as being
more or less incapable.    So far from
thinking any better of that body
ourselves, we are gaining in our belief that a great sweep should be
made, aud wc are fully persuaded
that if our device is not soon acted
upon,    circumstances   will   compel
action in this diroction.   We can
scarcely imagine how a gang of men
could display more incompetence, or
how a corporation's affairs could be
in a worso state than is tho case in
this town just now.   Al the meeting of tbo council which takes place
on Dec. lGth, the law demands that
a full   detailed  statement  of  tho
year's business shall bo read and
shall afterwards bo printed for distribution.   We daro say that in no
other instance in tho provinco will
it   bo   found   from these financial
statements tliat not a cent  of  the
year's taxes has been collected, yet
it will be tho caso here.   Tho plentiful season for money has gone and
not a cent has found its way to the
town treasury.   Two yearss' taxes
will havo to be collected next year,
or elso remain a year  behind.   Tho
banks must be full of notes on discount to mako up   for   this   delay.
Besides tho tax-roll being neglected,
there is no voters' list, and the coming municipal, school, and probably
parliamentary elections will havo to
be held on voters' lists founded on
assessments  two years   old.   We
must strongly condemn the mayor.
So far as we can judge ho is a man
totally unfitted for his position, and
we should say if ho had any sand in
him aflairs would not havo beeu al
lowed to grow worse every day of
Ilia term.    No part of tho town's
business is done in n business-like,
straight-forward way, tho meetings
of council boing vory much   more
like tlio snarlings of a gang of jackals,"   The Whitby editor strikes us
as being   a   remarkably   even-tempered, patient and   amiablo man,
judging him by his strictures, on the
fearful and  wonderful   incapablos
hinted at above.   Just fancy a oity
council that, within a few weeks of
the end of its term, hasn't fulfilled
tho most ordidary and obvious functions of such bodies—not a cont of
taxes yet collected and   no   assessment roll or voters' list  made   out
for tho year.   "The plentiful season
for money has gone and not a cont
has found its way to tho town treasury," is a veritable wail that has
been wrung from tho editorial heart
by a too vivid conception of the awful forlornnoss of the  predicament.
It will not bo necessary to contrast
our municipal board for 1889  with
tlio Whitby phenomenon to demonstrate that the former has shown a
largo sharo of executive ability, as
well as a commendable spirit of enterprise,   whatever   the   faults   or
foibles of individual   members may
have been, during the year now drawing to a close.
They havo an effective way of
dealing with habitual drunkards in
Norway and Sweden. They put
them in jail, and, it is said, feed
them entirely on broad and wine,
The bread is steeped in wine for an
hour before it is served. "Tho lirst
day a man will gladly tako it, but
beforo many days pass he hates tho
sight of it. It is told that after un
incarceration of this sort many men
becomo total abstainers." Constable
Smith might put this on his bill of
fare.
Liout. Stairs, who is with Stanloy,
graduated from tho Kingston Military College in 1882. Ho is a
Nova Scotian by birth and a man of
considerable pluck. After qualifying himself by study for a position
in the Oanadian militia, Stairs found
employment as an engineer in New
Zealand. Thence he went to England to receivo a commission in tho
lloyal Engineers. Stanley found
him at Chatham and selected him
from among a hundred officers anxious to tread Africa's burning sand?.
Anlhon, N. Y., man has invented a pancake machine which threatens to revolutionize the present
way of making that articlo of diet.
Tho batter is placed in what maybe
termed a hopper on the top of tho
small machine, which is placod on
lho breakfast table. When cakes
uro wanted, the machine, whicli
works by a spring, is set in motion,
and the batter passes between two
very highly polished rollers, heated
vory hot by a spirit lamp. Tho
cakes aro thus rolled off and cut in
tho required shape by a sharp
knifo nnd thrown upon the plate,
which is bold ready to receive them.

THE DIAMOND'S HOME.
Faots Concerning tha Great Mines
of South Africa,
A Gigantic Enterprise  In  Which   1,200
Overseers Are Employed, anil Over
8,"i,000,000 of European Capital
Aro Expended Every Year.
Tlie De Beers mine disaster in tho South
African diamond fields, by which twenty-
four whites and two hundred natives perished, as reported from Cape Town, via
London, has awakened fresh Interest
uiiio-if* those who deal in the most valuable
of precious stones. By far tho greatest portion of tho diamonds now obtained come
from the mines of South Africa, which
wero discovered near Hopetown in 1807 by
somo Dutch children. Tbo mines are situated in Griqualand West, now a part of
Capo Colony, in latitude 23 degrees 40 minutos, longitude 25 degrees 10 minutes cast,
about 040 miles northeast of Capo Town, and
GOO miles from the sea coast. Although
t hey are at an elevation of noarly 4,000 feet
abovo tho sea level, tho hoat Is excessive
during the summer months, whon tho work
is principally carried on.
According to tho flrst roport of tho terrible calamity ft was that "the Do Boors
Coal Mino at Kfmberley " had caught firo.
Tiio manifest error iu regard to tho character ot tho mine was not corrected in sub-
eequont dispatches, hut tho cause of tho
fatal firowascxplained in this ways "Whilo
the ohifts were being changed tbo hauling
wire broko ond tho skip rushed down tho
shaft with frightful rapidity. Tho oil lampB
wero broken, and tho blazing fluid quickly
i-milcd tbo wooden casing of tbe shaft.
Flumes In great volumes shot up tho shaft,
completely preventing! ogross. Tho mino
wup^oon filled with smoko, and the lights
carried by the minors wero rendered usc-
Jcss The panic-stricken natives und whites,
in thoir efforts to oscape, became massed
together In tho galleries and wero suffocated
to death."
Tho superintendent of the De Beers Mine
is Gardener P. Williams, of Oakland, Cal.
He went to South Africa on his second trip
in tho latter part of 1830. Ho is a regular
correspondent of Georgo P. Kunz, Tiffany
& Co.'s gem expert and mineralogist. A
Now York Timet reporter talked with Mr.
Kunz, and obtained from him some Interesting facts about tho Do Beers Mines.
The mine covers 13}£ acres or 010 claims,
each Ul feet square, with a roadway of 15
foot betweon each claim. Tho mines wero
originally worked In individual claims, 8,143
in number, each 01 feot squaro, with a roadway 1% foot wido between oach pair of
claims. Thoso small claims aro now consol*
idutcd into about ninety large companies
and private firms, having a gross capital of
nearly {50,000,000. Thoro aro four largo
mines, all within a radius of a mile and a
half. The celebrated Kimberloy covers
soven and a half acres. Thlrty-threo million karats (ovor six and a half tons) of diamonds havo already been takon out, valued
In tho rough at £45,000,000 and after cutting
at iiH),O0O,00O. Tho absorption of tho smaller by tlio larger companies is constantly
going on, aud it is proposod to consolidate
ull Uio companies into ono. Ton thousand
natives, each receiving £1 a wook, aro employed in tho mlnos under tho supervision
of 1,200 European overseers. Tho enormous sum of ovor £1,000,000 Is annually expended for labor.
This mammoth investment of European
capital would havo been moro profltablo to
the shareholders woro it not for tho thlov-
ishnoss of tho nntivo diggers, who, instigated by tho vicious whites chat congregate
on tlio field, at ono time stolo and disposed
of from ono-ilftli to ono-fourth of tho entiro
yield. Moro improved mothods of surveillance, recently introduced, havo diminished
this loss. Nono but authorized agonts aro
permitted to purchase or possoss rough diamonds, and a large doteotivo forco is on tho
alert to prevent any infringement of tho
rules, A record is now kept of overy diamond found. Tho thieves havo boon caught
making chickens swallow diamonds in tho
mine, and a postmortem hold on ono of tho
natives who died suddonly revealed tho fact
that his death was caused by a sixty-karat
diamond which ho had swallowed.
According to tho latest official reports
thero wero employed in tho De Bcors mino
:m whites and 2,758 natives. Of tho latter
UOOwora hired from tho Government at a
cost of £58 per annum. Formerly tho natives woro allowed to loavo tho mlnos, but
owing to tho fraudulent traffio carried on
3,300 of them woro last year compounded.
Tboy practically lived in the mines, and
woro hotter off than those who had their
freedom. The; old system ot open workings has been to a great extent abandoned
for tho shaft and underground plan. Under
tlio original method tho excavations wero
carried on to a depth of 500 feet. Thoro
wero many accidents, owing to tho falling
shalo or reef. A rock shaft fs completed to
a dopth of 841 foet and taps low levels.
During tho last year ovor 21,021 feet of
main tunnel wore driven. There Is ouo
shaft of 701 feet, another of 477 foot, and a
third of 125 feet. As many as eighteen
tribos of natives havo been represented in
tho mines, Somo of tho natives havo been
known to tramp 1,000 milos to get work.
In 1887-83 800,000 loads of "bluo stuff"
wero hauled out of tho mines, and 850,000
loads yielded 070,T32ia carats, for which tho
company received £034,035 14s Od. Tho
actual oxpondituro was £418,188, leaving a
profit of £508,807. The Do Boors mino is
capitalized at £2,500,620 in £10 shares.
These woro quoted ns high as £52 last month,
and sinco thou have slumped to £30 and again
advanced to £30. It is tho opinion of Mr.
Kunz that tho recent accident will cause nn-
othev doollno In shares. From September
1,1833, lo DecomborSl, 1887, tho Do Boors
mino yielded 844,015 karats, valued at £3,-
450,333, an averago of £1 &<t per carat.
Tliis includes ovory thing taken from the
mine. In tho beginning of tho enterprise
tho mine produced .4 karat por load, but last
year the yield was .8 karat per load, a significant increase.
Water flows from tho mino at tho rate of
l ,000 gallons por hour, and at tho rate of 1,100
gallons from tho rock shaft. Thoro aro nino
big washing machines in use, which aro
moro reliable than tho bond or oyo. It li so
accurate that a diamond tho sizo of a pin*
head can not cscapo.
GAS FROM PETROLEUM.
An Attractive Theme  far Iuveutors as
Well as Consumers,
"Of the many devicos omploydl in the
manufacture of illuminating gas," said a
well-known official of a Brooklyn gas company to a Now York Matt and Express re*
porter, "nono has seemed moro attractive
to Inventors and manufacturers than tho
uso of petroleum oil In place of coal, Somo
very considerable advantages seem possible by Its use, and although it was pretty
thoroughly tried a number ot years ago,
and generally discarded, tho quostion of
substituting it for cool has boon revived
and is again receiving considerable utten-
tlou.
"There is no question that tho gas which
can bo readily enough made from tho oil Ib
very highly luminous, and this is an apparent advantage. But thero aro other
considerations, and tho first of thom Is the
cost. It seems as though it ought to bo
cheaper than coal, unless at a timo when
coal Is unusually cheap. The gus from oil
is callod of sixty-candle powor, but It is ex*
eecdingly doubtful whether It can bo mudo
te maintain that standard when stored or
delivered in the usual manner to towns or
cities.
"Even if it can bo Bixty-cnndlo gas as It
Is ordinarily used, it is not worth twice as
much as thirty-candle, or threo times as
much as twenty-candle gas. The greater
pioBBuros at whioh tho higher qualities
havo to bo consumed in ordor te got tho
best results eject the hydrocarbon particles from tho burner at suoh a rapid rate
that mnny of them are wasted and not
burned atoll.
"Thore havo been manydevlces for securing tho greatest light from the burning of a
given amount of gas, but most of tho inventors start wrong. They uso small humors and high pressure. Whon the quality
of gas Is stated as of suoh a candle powor,
it can only bo compared with other gas that
Ib used through a standard burner, by testing it with tho same burner."   ~»

At Montevideo ono of tho most beautiful <>r
tho villas belongs to another Philadelphia!!,
Mr. W. I). Evans, who, according to Curtis'
'Capitals of Spanish America," has a ro*
muntic history:
Thirty years ago Mr. Evans shipped as
mote on a sailing-vessel bound for Uruguay. Sho was wrecked off the coast by
one of tho ill winds which seamen moot,
and" ho was cast ashore, penniless and
friendless. All tho property ho had iu tho
world were nn ordinary ahip's boat which
ho hud saved from tho wreck, and the clothing which lio woro. But he had a strong
reserve iu the form of muscle, courage nnd
manliness, and with his boat commenced
life ns a Cari/ador-that is, a longshoreman
—and offered his services to tho publio to
convoy, passongors nnd baggage to and
from tho ships in lho harbor. About u
wcolt aftor ho had entered his new omploy-
ment ho was caught in a galo outside llio
harbor. His boat wns capsized, ami lio
floated around for four hours clinging to
hor keel, until rescued by tho crow
of a stoamor which happened to bo
coming In. Ho thanked bis saviors
graciously, but declined thoir Invitation
to go ou board tlio stoamor, only
asking asslstanco to right his boat, in ordor
that lie mght sail back to town, lie was
jeered at, und advised to lot the old tub
drift, as it was worthless j but ho lold tlio
sailors whll 3 it was not muoh of it boat, it
was ull tho property ho owned in tlio world,
and ho intended to inuko a fortuuo out of it
yot. Tboy liked tho spirit of tho man,'and
helped him to put his boat in sailing trim,
wishing him good-luck as ho started back to
Montevideo.
Iu tho center of tho finest private park in
tho Itiver Piatt country is a handsome
brotizo fountain whicli must havo cost sovoral thousand dollars. In its basin, casting
a shadow over myriads of gold-fish and
Bpccklcd trout floats Mr. Evans' old boat,
tho most precious pioco of property ho owns,
uud ho is said to bo worth millions. Ho
nover allows a day to pass without visiting
the fountain, and no guest over comos to
tho Evans audita who is not brought to bow
to tho idol. Thero is somotbing pathetic iu
tho affection and reverence which tho millionaire shows for the rotten old tub. "Slio
has saved my lifo twice," says Mr. Evans to
evory body, "and whon I was flat broko,
sho was my only friend. You gentlemen

A SHARK'S DINNER.
How a Foolhardy Young 1-onnsylvnnlan
Courted Destruction.
Wo had been fishing for sen bass in Great
Egg Harbor, says tho Detroit Free I'm*,
und had hauled in our Une3 to cut luncheon,
when, glancing ovor tho port-quarter or tho
yacht, I encountered tho oyes of a shark.
His snout and head woro thoro, of course,
but I scarcely saw any thing but tlio eyea.
Tho water was ns clear us glass, mid ho
was not moro than two feet nbovo tlio surface. Suclioycsl Thoy hadn't tho lire of
a serpent's nor tho glassy green of u mad
dog's, but thero was something bo devilish
in tho way ho stared at mo-some thing so
murderous nnd malignant—that I yelled
right out and was mado tho butt of ridicule.. One and all, oxcept tbo sailor in
chargo of ttio boat, vigorously denied that I
hud seen a shark. When ho was appealed
to, ho soberly replied;
j   "lean not say, but I know that man-eat-:
ers como inhere."
Wo had with us a young man from Western Pennsylvania, a tull,niw-boned, demon-
1 strntlvo chap, whoso clutter no ono could
koop still whon wo hud our lines out. Whoa
wo had finished luncheon ho uttered
another sneer at my pale face, pulled oil his
coat and gaiters, ami, standing up ou the
rail, ho crowed like a cock uud shouted:
" I'm going to givo that Bhark a chanco to
get a good dinner!"
With that ho sprang overboard and swain
about fifty feet. Thoro was only a rufilo of
a sea on, and ho was a swimmer who would
have thought nothing of a mile pull. Tlio
boatman shouted to bim to como back, but
tho others laughed and tho swim mer
laughed with them. I wns standing up in
the cockpit, looking ovor nnd beyond thn
mau, wbon I saw a black object riding ou
tho surfaco. It lookod to mo liko a small
duck, and 1 was wondering how it moved
bo swiftly, whon it suddenly disappeared.
Fivo seconds later tho swimmer heaved
himself up breast high, flung his arms over
his head, and uttered a scream which yet
rings in my cars. Then ho disappeared, and
tho awful silence among us was broken by
tho voico of tho boatman, saying:
' Ho hns boon pulled down hy u man-
eater!"
Tho object I had soon flitting on tho surface was tho dorsal lin of a shark. There
was tho shriek—a splash—a swirl—and
uo'bing moro.   Tlie shark had his dinner.
THREE GREAT  MUSICIANS.
The Cruel Flnunclal Struggles of lloetliu-
von, Schubert uutl Mozart.
Iu the cemetery at Wuhring, a suburb of
Viennu, throo tombs have long lain close togothor, inscribed with tho names of Boo*
thovon, Schubort and Mozart. Tho cemetery,
says tho Loudon Tctejrapli, is now to be destroyed, and not long ago tho remain-* of
Boothovon woro romovod and rointorrcd
with nil suitable honor in tho contual cemetery of tho city. Tbo samo will bo dono
with Schubert's remains, and his native
country will strive by manifestations of
its reverence to wipe out tlio memory of Ids
neglected lifo andunhonorod doath. Wilh
Mozart it is too late ovon for this tardy
reparation, for his monument covers no
tomb, uud hia body can never bo rescued
from the pauper's gravo In which, to thu
disgrace of civilization, It was laid. The
lives of musicians are, for tho most part,
sad reading; aud thu last days of Bcolho-
von, Schubort and Mozart may divide tho
palm for pathos. All three composers were
harrusBcd on their death-beds Willi money
difficulties. Schubert's wholo stock of
musical manuscripts was valuod ut 1(9.13,
and Boothovon wub constrained to bog u
complimentary concert from tho English
Philharmonic Society, Tho hundred pounds,
whleh was tho prompt rosponso to his ftp*!
peal, helped to quicken his ond by tho
grateful emotion it caused. Beethoven's
stormy lifo had n striking closo, as roused
by a suddon clap of thunder, with his last
strength ho opened his oyos and shook his
clenched hand at tho elements. Schubert,
who had the greatest rovorenco for Boothovon, visited his death-bed, and loft, say the
historians, deeply movod. In another year,
he, too, had givon up the strugglo, and was
lying peacefully in tho ground. Beethoven's image haunted his dying visions, and
ho begged to bo buried by tho muster's
side. Tho story of Mozart's death, rendered almost tragic by the incident of tlio
hulMlnishcd requiem, ib familiar to all.
Throe mon of supromo poetical endowments woro thus suffered to dio in poverty,
;and, In tho caso of two ut loast, to pass the

The rapid increase in tho population
of Westminster is plainly evidenced by
the report of the school trustees, that
Sapperton and west end schools nre far
too small to accommodate tho number
of ehildron  applying for admission.
Sappert-in school has not been established 18 montha, nnd tho west end
school barely six montha.   If all the
children applying for admission wero
provided for, both of these institutions
would require to bo doubled in capacity.   Tlio government will be aaked to
enlarge all the schools in the eity, immediately, and yet their capacity has
been more than doubled during tho
past eighteen months.

Thero wns a good sized audionco preaent Inst night at thu opera houso to

showed it enthusiastically. Miss Essie
Tittell, ns Lucille Carlyle, showed horsolf a perfect actress. Mm Minnie
Tit-tells songs, dntico3 and character

laughter. Sho is tho cleverest sou-

truly detestable—that is, he plnyed tho
part to such good purpose thnt the
larger part of tho house hated him
heartily for the time. Mr. Sam Morris, as Carter, the correspondent, wus
inimitable, and his witticisms nnd antics kept the houso merry. Those
desirous of seeing really good noting
Bhould mnko uso of the opportunity
presented to-night and to-morrow
evening, in standard pieces. Tho
"Mountain Waif" will bo played tonight. In this pieco the compnny ts
said to ho particularly strong, nud it

By a Large Majority,
As wus generally anticipated, tho
loan by-laws for the improvement of
Qucon's park, Moody squaro and Albert Crescent, were carried yesterday
by satisfactory majorities, Tho majorities could casilj have boon trebled
had the frionds of tho by-laws exerted
themselves to any extent, but it wua
so generally understood that publio
feeling strongly favored them, that no
effort was mado to secure a largo voto.
The weather, also, was vory disagree-
able, and preronted mnny from going
to tho polls. Following is the result
of tho voting:
queen's r.Aitk by-law.

It will thus be Beon thnt the by-laws
were carried by n majority of 57 votes,
out of a total vote of 247. The voting
ennncity of ward ono seems to bo vory
limited, or elso tho electors tuo not addicted to interesting themselves in
public matters.
Again on llie Warpath,
The insano man who kopt tlio peoplo
of Elgin and Blaino in a state of fright
for a couplo of wocks in September,
nnd whu so narrowly escaped lynching
at tho hands of a number uf enraged
citizens of tho lutter town, is again
terrorising tho country, armed, as
before, with n Winchester repenting
rillo. Tho authorities uf Surrey havo
endeavored to effect this man'*) arrest,
but want of courage or a good opportunity hnvo so far prevented it. Failing to accomplish tho arrest of tho
mnn, the Surrey peoplo have invited
Mr. W, Moresby, governor of tho provincial gnol, to go ovor nnd take nil tho
glory or tho dnngoroits task to himsolf.
Thia, Mr. Moresby is perfectly willing
to do, nnd would soon havo the insane
mnn safely confined, but ho is prevented from leaving tho city on missions
of this kind by a recent order from
headquarters. As matters now stand
Mr. Moresby would be obliged to pay
his own expenses did he undertake
the arrest, and although ho would like
to relievo.Surrey of tho proBenco of
this dangerous lunatic, he would not
bo justified in offering his services gratia. Mr. Moresby's daring and intrepid character, and his well known ability in all matters pertaining to his duties, mnko his services invaluable to
the district at large, and the government would do well to restore to him
tho roving commission which no one
elso seems competent to fill. One
thing ia certain, the lunatio should be
placed in safe keeping without loss of
timo, for murder may bo tho result of
his remaining at largo.
Bros., chairs, 822.75; Rand Biol, fees
on registration, $4.45,
Tho salaries of enrettkora of tho
Sapportoii.aud wosteud schools word
fixed at §4 per mouth from October
lat to April 30th, and §3 per month
during the BUnimer term.
Tho, resignation of Miss Bell, of tho
Sapperton school, wan accepted, and it
wns decided by llio board to present
thnt lady with n testimonial for tho
vnluablo services rendered by her.
A list of promotions to lho high
school, from tho superintendent of
education, was read and laid on tho
table for reference.
The application of Mias Lswis, for
an extension of tho leaso of the old
high school building, was laid on the
tablo. Tho secretary reported that
Dr. DeWolf Smith hud offered to give
lectures to tho pupils of the high school
on physiology, hygiene, etc., und on
motion his offer was accepted. Invitations will nlso be extended to othor
medical practitioners iu the city, to
lecturo on these subjects.
It was pointed out that the western!
and Sapperton schools wero already
too small to accommodate tho number of
children in theso districts, and, sb a
consequence, tho schools are overcrowded. It was resolved that tho
government bo urged to immediately
increaso the capacity of these institutions. 	
POLICE COURT.
(Boforo T, 0. Atkinson,P. M.)
Henry Boltby, alias Frenehy,
churged with having been drunk in nn
Indian tent last night, pleuded guilty
to tho charge. Frenehy was sont up
for two mouths last autumn. His
honor commented severely on the
crimo, and the chief of police asked
thnt tho full ponnlty of tho law be ap*
plied. Mr. Moresby testified thut the
prisoner was a worthless oharactor,
and had been imprisoned repeatedly at
Vancouver, nnd he wns nothiug but a
public nuisance. His honor iu imposing ti sentence of six min.ths imprisonment nt hurd labor, said ho wus sorry
ho could not mnko tho sentenco heavier. •
Six able bodied young men who
were arrested last night on a charge of
vagrancy, pleaded not guilty to the
charge. One of them, Robert Brooks
by name, pleaded the c.ise for himself
nnd comrades with much eloquence
nnd to such good effect that all were
discharged nnd advised to get to work
without delay. Tho most of them are
dock luborers aud hail from Nnnaimo
and Victoria.

Thoy had got nil tho galo money and
they would not have got that if tho
fence had not been erected.
Aid. Cnlbick snid tho lumber
would not ba depreciated moro than a
dollar n thousand. Tho contract
price hnd been very low. On
motion the matter was laid ovor
for one week und Aid. Cunningham
will bring in an estimate of tho value
of the lumber.
UNFINISHED BUSINESS.
On motion, tho Queen's Park Loan
Bylaw wns a read a third timo by title
and then received the usual finishing
touchoB.
The Moody Square and Albert Crescent Bylaw received the same reading,
nnd was duly passed.
NEW BUSINESS.
His worship said he had nn interview with Lieut.-Colonel Holmes, and
Colonel Holmes had asked that tho
council puss a resolution condemning
tho old drill shed as it would strengthen his hands iu disposing of this matter. Colonol Holmes had had a good
oiler for tlio old sito, and if ho oould
got the council tu pass such a resolution it would help him greatly in the
procuring of a now sito.
Moved by Aid, Jaques, seconded by
Aid. Curtis, that owing to tho dilapidated condition of tho drill shed tn this
city, it is resolved that a communication bo forwardod to the minister of
militia urging upon him tho necessity
of building n new ouo. Tho council
had boon informed and believes that
at present all tho arms and accoutre*
monts aro being destroyed by rust and
mould on nccount of dampness in tho
nimory. And this council would suggest that a change iu tho site bo made
by Belling the present one, whicli is
vnluablo, and another bo purchased in
n moro ccntrnl position, nnd that the
roport of tho city engineer bo forwarded with tho communication.   Carried.
Council after somo discussion wont
into committee of tho whole on tho
mayor's indemnity bylaw.
Aid. Keary wanted to know where
the four hundred dollars, proposed to
be paid to Mnyor Townaond, was to
cumo from. Ho believed that Mayor
Townsend fully deserved that amount,
but it was ns well to know whero tho
money wus to como from.
Aid. Cunningham snid that Mayor
Townsend had faithfully done his duty
to tho city, and although thoro hud
been several insidious reports circulated about his reported interfering
with committees, thoy woro groundless. Mnyor Townsend had bueu diligent, faithful, uud always rendy to
work hard for tho city.
Aid. Jaques and all tho other aldermen concurred in tiicso sentiment.*.
Aid. Calbick thought tliat §250
would ho milliciont for the services
rendered by Mayor Townsond.
Aid. McPhaden wns opposed to tho
principlo of paying tlio mnyor anything, although he thought Mnyor
Townsend doBorvcd it if anybody did.
Aid. Curtis thought S250 ample nnd
fair remuneration for Mayor Town-
sund's services.
Aid. Calbick wished it understood
that his amendment of $250 was pub
moroly because of tho extra work which
tho mayor had done, and not to establish a precedent. The clauso wus
amended to read $250 instead of 8400.
The committeo roso nnd reported
the byluw complete with amendments;
roport adopted. The bylaw was read
n third time, passed, and directed to
bo signed, scaled and published.
Moved by Aid. Cnlbick, seconded by
Aid. Keary, that O. McDonough bo
allowed to uao the fire slip at the foot
of Mary atreet for a traflic way at tho
pleasure of tho council.   Carried.
ACCOUNTS,
The following accounts were recommended to bo paid: Brunette Saw
Mills Co., 82,045.04; Oovernor-Gen-
oral's reception, 8101.00; Election expenses, 930.00.
Tho council adjourned until Monday
night.

The failure of Mulnrky & Co., hoot
and shoo manufacturers, Montreal, is
worso than at first expected. Tho liabilities already foot up $250,000. Tho
largest creditor is the Merchants' Bank
for $57,000, tho larger part of which is
secured.
Says a Into Hamilton dispatch:
Evangelists Hunter and Crossley, who
havo boen tirading against dancing,
have beon invited to a ball by the Empiro Quadrille Club. The club will
givo §100 to charity if anything objectionable can bo seen in tho entertainment.
The club of National Young French
Liberals, of Montreal, discussed the
question of annexation with the
United States, ono night last week.
Two strung speeches propared for tho
occasion were delivered in favor of it,
Threo wero for independence and two
in favor of maintaining the status quo.
A Toronto evening paper on Friday,
published as a special despatch a report that Hon. Wilfred Laurier Ib going to slump Stanstead on behalf of
Mr. Colby and against LoBaron, the
equal rights candidate. A morning
paper wired as to tho accuracy of tho
statement, and Mr. Laurier replied,
"Tho report is untrue,   Contradict it."
A vory snd drowning accident ocour-
ed at Port Hope, Ont., Friday ovening,
whereby two children belonging to
very respectable families lost thoir
lives. Two littlo boys, a son of John
Mallett and n son of Mr. Mitchell, of
the Port Hope gnrdens, were skating
on the oloctrio light pond, whero they
wore last aeon. Thoy broko through
tho ice and woro drowned. Tho bodioa
have been recovered.
La Justice, of Montreal commenting
on tho Stanstead election, says: Let
us place out the cards: under othor circumstances we wonld be pleased nt
tho defeat of Mr. Colby, but now wo
are in favor of Mr. Colby's election by
a majority whioh shall mark a signal
triumph. Mr, Colby, a tory is alono
one hundred times more preferable to
an equal righter." Theso remarks aro
significant, coming frum a journal
which is an ardent supporter of tho
Morcior government.
The Toronto police hnd t■• interfere
Friday ovening to put dowu a gang of
roughs who got up an nnti-Catholic
demonstration and mado very large
proccBsions. Thoy woro preceded by
a cab loaded with illuminated placards
bearing such inscriptions us "no popery," "wo want no Walsh," etc.,
uud when ordered hy the police to
disband thoy refused. Tho polico thou
dispersed them with clubs. A young
man named Arthur Chamberlain wns
arrested for trying to drive a cab
through the policemen's ranks aud
fined 81 nnd costs next morning.
The Scliool Tax,
In tho supreme court at Victoria on
Saturday, Messrs. Eberts & Taylor
applied to Mr. Justico Drake for nu
ordor permitting them to appeal, notwithstanding tho lapse of time. Thoy
Btated that tho amount of tho judgment, 85,708, hud boon paid into
court by the corporation. Tho mo*
tion was opposed by tho attorney-general, who drew the attention of the
court to the absence of auy affidavit
showing that the corporation wero nd-
vised that thoy hnd ground for questioning tho constitutionality of the
school tax act. An ordor wus finally
made, by consent, thut tho sole point,
whether tho act was constitutional or
not, should he brought before tho
present full court, by way of a case
stated; the monoy in court being in
the meantime paid over to the government, upon their undertaking to refund it if the caso went ngninst thom,
nnd the full court to havo powor to set
aside tho judgment and to entor it for
whichever party thoy thought entitled.
