AFRICAN SLAVERY.
London, Doc. 7.—OardinalLavigerrie
iu Bpenking of tho return of Emin Pa-
sha nud Henry M. Stanley to civilization aaid: "The darkest page on the
story of slavery is that which tells of
its present revival iu the interior of
Africa, with the horrors of the scourge.
The recent conference of representatives of tho powers held at Brussels
wue jciwcrU-BS to deal, for tlm confer*
ouce could only define the obligations
of the civilized powers, and those oxtended only eo far as the authority and
control of such powers prevailed. Civilization controls the coast of Africa.
lt has planked its feet on the southern
aud northern regions of the continent
aud on the mouths of the Niger. It
has a possible channel into the interior
ttlbnt* the waterway of the Oongo, but
■ lie interior of Africa from Sahara and
the desert of Korosko to Zambesi is
outside the pale of civilization and is
given up to plagues such as havo no
parallel in recorded history. A dark,
brutal fanaticism, taking upon itaelf
the once proud title of Islam has
spread over this vast region, destroying
wiih unspeakable horrors millions ol
human beings in ordor to make captives of tho thousands of wreothed survivors. Thia Btrango revival seems to
have originated in the populous regions betwoen tho middle Niger and
Lake Chad. Perhaps it began in a
peculiar sect, first made known to Europe through the movement of Go-
noussi in the bank landi of Algeria."

The Wreck or Ibe Hustler
Mr. M. Manson and the crew of the
steamer Bustler, have arrived back hy
the stoamor Clyde from Nelson Island.
Ho uivos tho following nccount of tho
wreck of tho Hustler. Tho steamer
Hustler was lying ut the Nelson Island
Granito Quarry nnd only stopped there
about fifteen minutes when they
discovered they wero fast upon
a rock, tho tide having rapidly
receded while they woro lying there.
Captain LaBlanc attempted to got her
off but tho rook hold hor fast   in   this
Jiosition and Uter on as tho tide went
ower she heeled ovor and filled with
water, compelling tho crew to leave
her. Captain LcBlanc then left for
Vancouver to obtain assistance, and
going in ho met Mr. Manson, and to*
gether they went back to the Rustler
111 tho steamer Tepic, with a scow to
to try nnd get hor off. After working
a considerable timo they found she was
completely broken to pieces, and therefore a total loss. The Rustler did ex*
collent service last summer in the trade
between Nnnaimo and Texada Islnnd,
whore she took many a good prospector
and where she wns nt times most aux*
iously enquired for hy thom. The
McKenzie Bros,' steamer Clyde, left
again this morning for Nelson Island
intending to tnko the boiler nnd machinery from the hull of the Rustler.
Mr. Manson informs us he is not insured one cent for the Rustler, and he
further states $6,000 will not replace
her.—Free Press,

OREAT STRIKE THREATENED.
London, Dec. 9.—Two thousand gas
workers met in a suburb of London today and adopted resolutions embodying
the grounds of their demands for better
compensation, and declaring their unalterable determination to force a recognition ol their rights. It is confidently
asserted that the coal handlers will atrike

invasion threatened.
London, Deo. 9.—Egypt is now
threatened with an incursion by thirty
thousand Bedouins who bave hitherto
maintained an inoffensive attitude.
The oause of the present movement is
the refusal of the Egyptian govt, to
grant certain trivial claims in regard
to land. Though differing widely
from the system of land tenure prevalent amoug nations which call themselves civilized, the custom of the Bedouins in regard to land occupancy are
well defined, and any infringement
upon them is bitterly resented. The
Egyptian govt, might doubtless save
itself much expense and annoyance
by deigning to study the prejudices
and customs of tho children of the
desert, instead of riding rough shod
over them, and acknowledging no
right but.force.
MOUSSA BEY PUNISHED.
London, Dec. 9.—The action of the
Bultan in banishing Moussa Bey after
thut chieftain had been acquitted according to the approved Turkish
methods of justice, causes muoh astonishment here. It is hinted that the
Piirte received strong representations
from the European governments to the
effect that Christendom might demand
international interference if the policy
of outrage upon Christiana was maintained by Mouisa Bey, and endorsed
by his acquittal were continued. It is
not believed, however, that the actual condition 0! Christians in Armenia
will be bettered by the disgrace of
Moussa. Outside opinion will be satisfied for the time being, and the outrages will go on under other .chiefs,
unmolested until matters become so
bad as to again challenge the attention
of the civilized world.
PROMINENT PHYSICIANS.
Berlin, Dee. 9.—Tho celebrated physician, Dr. Loy dan, hu been suddenly
summoned to St. Petersburg to attend
the czsr, who is suffering with influenza.
Dr. Bergman, the noted laryngologist,
who was one of the attendants upon
tho late Emperor Frederick, is quite
ill with inflamation of the lungs.
TO CHECK THE KINDS.
Constantinople, Dec. 0.—Moussa
Bey, the Kindish chief, who wu ao*
quitted on charges of outraging tho
Christian population of Armenia, hu
been exiled with his family to Syria.
The fores of gendarmes in Armenia
will be increased with the purpose of
holding the Kinds in check.
A BASELESS RUMOR.
Berlin, Dec. 9.— The Zeitung states
semiofficially that the report of a marriage having been arranged between a
Russian prince and the Princess Margaret of Prussia is untrue. Gossip-
mongers have had a difficult task In
trying to strike the right combination
for Princess Margaret and positive
statements have been made bothroth-
ing her at one time to a Dutch, then
to a Spanish and finally to a Russian
prince. Tbe latter rumor has been
the only one to elicit a denial from
high quarters. Whereat some infer
that the Emperor William resents even
a suspicion of any strengthening of the
ties betweon Germany and Russia.
TUB REASONS WHY.
Lisbon, Deo. 9.—In an interview
to day Count Deu, son-in-law of Dom
Pedro, uid of recent oventi in Brazil:
The republicans were not numerous,
they profited by tho estrangement of
tlie largo landowners wbo were bitter
against the government because ot the
immediate abolition of slavery. Many
merchants, also conservatives, were
also alienated by the abolition movo*
ment. The republicans industriously
spread tho idea that the throne wu
wholly responsible for the hutening of
the emancipation, whereas this aotion
wu only the logical consummation of a
policy extending back many years, and
which had received the support uf all
classes. Meanwhile the army had become tyrannical and insolent The
only means of checking thii dangerous tendency wu to at once
revive the Garde Nationals, which
wu always a conservative body. Before nominating the officers the gov*
ernment resolved to create n regiment
at Rio. Tho republicans bruited
about that the government intended to
revive it everywhere, and to disarm
tho existing forces. The military
thereupon decided to revolt under
Fonseca, who is a weak man and easily
managed. Atthe beginning the only
ory oftho military wu "Down with the
government," "Viva Libertisd," but
in the evening students cried, "Viva
Republic," and the military joined in.
Regarding the prospect of the restoration of tho empire the count uid:
"Brazil is too far from Europe for propor stops to be takon. There ia also
lacking ■ man to bring the army around
to the side of tho empire. Had the
emperor been able to snow himself to
the crowd in tho streets they would
have cheered him and tho revolution
would have collapsed, It is now too
Ute.

ST, PAUL'S CHURCH.
At St Paul's Reformed Episcopal
ohurch yesterday morning the Rov.
Thos. Haddon spoke on "True Great-
nets," taking Matt 20 c., 25 to 27 v.
as tho basis of his remarks. He said;
Perhaps there is hardly a man in tho
wide world who hu not at somo timo
in hts life had a desire to bo great, and
hold some position of honor amongst
his fellow men. Ambition is inherent
in man; it comes into prominence even
with tho disciples in their dispute as to
who should be tho greatest; then in
connection with the text the mother
of Zebedeu's children is ambitious for
her sons to ait iu honor noar Jesus, in
what she looked fur u a temporal
kingdom, nnd coming from the narrative, in the indignation of the ten, is a
witness of the inherent ambitions
craving. The desire to know which
should be accounted the greatest was
met in a similar wny to thst recorded
in tho text. One thought arises just
here. If Peter was present on this occasion, as he certainly must hive been,
and lie wu to be accounted the chief
among them, why did not Christ uy
so? Why did not the disciples regard
him u chief? The interpretation of
that remark Christ made to Peter,
"Thou art Peter, and upon this rook I
will build my ohurch," as made by the
teachers in the Romish Church, ie
erroneous; it wu upon Peter's confession, that Josus was tho Christ, he
would build His churoh. Upon the
principle, upon tho belief, and not
upon the man; imagination must take
wide scope to come to any other conclusion. The churoh of Christ, divinely instituted, divinely honored, certainly would have divinity u a foundation rather than man. Nono of the
early churches recognized or acknowledged Peter as greater than any of the
rest; even Paul, who by his achievements might be counted the greatest of
all the apostles, calls himself tho leut.
My impression is that in the text the
Lord does not in the leut seek to crush
ambition, but would have it founded
on a sure, true and honest foundation.
Humility is the true source of greatness, and Christ's own oue of ministering and sacrifice for others is an example. Jesus aoknowledgea the right
of princes, but as differing from the ordinary course. The men of influence
iu the world are ia many cases looked
upon by God u unstable beings, and
while many counted among tho noble
and the daring have conquered and
ruled nations, thoy havo not succeeded
in conquering and ruliug their own
hearts. Bleu -aro like Alexander the
Great, when he had conquered all the
then known world, wept became thero
was nothing more to conquer, but he
had forgotten his own heart. Count not
that man groat who hu reached the
top of the ladder of fame and yet has
not started to climb toward heaven.
The meuure of true greatness is in
proportion to the profession of tho
graces of the spirit, and the willingneia
to minster for and to others rather
thon self. May we be led to labor on
at His command and offer all our works
to Him, nnd then the reward will be
sure. Let us tnko Paul's advice, "Be
yo steadfast, unmovable, alwayi
abounding in the work ot the Lord,
for u muoh u ye know that yonr labor
is not in vain in tho Lord."
HOLY TRINITY CHURCH.
At Huly Trinity churoh yesterday
morning Bishop Sillitoe preached
another interesting discourse on esoha-
tology, or tho dootorine of the lut or
final things; death and judgment. In
beginning his discourse the preacher
descanted on tho utter impotence of *
man and his puny judgment in faco of
spiritual things, lt hu been too much
the custom to turn tho idea of tho day
of judgment into a mere ceremony devoid of all meaning, but it is not 10,
but will be a terrible reality. Human
faith though sadly weakened is still used
as a battlefield ia which the genii of
good and evil struggle for the mastery.
The speaker then described the doctrine of fatalism; that what is
hu been ordained from tbe beginning.
The work of redemption stretches far
away beyond the needs of human nature; the gospel is a remedy for all
human ills. There is a wide difference
between fatalism and Christianity. If
arguments, as an excuse for not being
Christians, are to be based on the
ground of unfavorable circumstances,
where are we lo draw the line? E/ery
one is more or leu unfavorably situated.
And it is a question whether a man
born among thieves and vagabonds ii
more unfavorably situated than one
born in the higher ranks of society.
Blessing after bleuing hu been attached to poverty and persecution, and
curses and warnings unto the rioh.
Dives wu not so favorably situated u
Lazarus. Another great question on
this field of battle is that of purgatory
versus heaven nnd hell. Among
the Jews the intermediate state wu
termed Sheol, but iu the gospel we
have Hades, It was the Roman
church that attempted to substitute
purgatory for Sheol, and tho idea of
purgatory became established, According to the primitive idea neither
heaven or hell wu attained until after
the day of judgment. Eron Justin
Martyr cherished this belief. With
the dawn of the idea of purgatory this
belief exploded. And now according
to the Roman church imperfect souls
are relegated to purgatory. After tha
Reformation tho Protestant theologian!
at once rejected the doctrine of purgatory and made heaven and hell the immediate issues. If this dootrine is correct of course nil those who have died
outside the pale of the church are lost
There is no other alternative. The
consequence of sin in this life is immediate consignment to hell after death.
We have cut ont from theology the
intermediate state and substituted
heaven and hell; they aro the final
things. Next Sunday the bishop will
continue the series in anothor sermon
on the umo subject.
Tho celebrated case ot the Jesuits
against tho Mail for 960*000 alleged
damages, has pasted into a new itage.
Hon. Mr. Laflamme and F. 0. Smith,
the Mail's counsel, have mads a motion to amend their pleading by insetting certain ipecial causes of the constitution instead of general alienations,
which were argued, and Judge Doherty
took the matter en delibre.

Tp anything were wanted to do
monstrato the utter contemptible-
ness of tho local morning paper
the evidence is forthcoming in thn
vulgar and dishonorable tactics
which that sheet practices ut eleotion contests. Miniepresentntion,
untruth, und tho endeavor to foment
denominational and class differences are the unworthy weuponsto
which it has recourse by preference
whenever an election contest of any
sort is on. This was amply proved
by its conduct during the late Oor-
bould-Cunningham contest in this
city. On the very next opportunity
—which the civic elections offered—
tho "wretched" paper rushes incontinently to its dirty tracks again.
In its usual erratic und unreasoning
way, the Ohurch streot freak inuig-
ined that it wanted to oppose Mr.
James Johnston in ward two. Forthwith Mr. James Johnston must be
maligned in some way. Without
daring to assert directly what it
know to be an untruth— or, to, give
iUhe benefit of the doubt, what it
did not know to bo true—the organ
of undoubted veracity invented n
fiction, and introduced it in tho assassin style, "It is alleged," otc;
but took caro before coucluding
to assume its own allegation to be
fact. When the cowardly untruth
was publicly branded by this paper,
instead of retracting, truo to its
character, the mis namod sheet has
kept on reiterating its false insinuation. In its issue of Sunday morning Truth (J) says: "Although every
opportunity has been given them to
do so, neither James Johnston or his
coadjutor, The Columbian, have accepted Truth's challenge to dony
that he is alleged to lio connected
with the Salvation Army, und
that there has been somo justification for tho allegation." To
show how thoroughly and stupidly unscrupulous in its statements
tho morning paper cun bp wo will
reproduce a sentence - from un editorial paragraph in this paper  on   Friday   last:    "in
the interests of strict truth,
now that tho question bas been
raised by a falsehood, wo may
state, what all Mr. Johnston's
friends know, that in matters of religion be is one of the staic)est of
Presbyterians—the very untipodos
cf the demonstrative Salvationists—
nud, in fact, is known to havo personal predilections not favorable tn
the Army." No reasonable, honest
mind could ask for a more emphatic
contradiction than tho above so far
ns this paper is concerned. With
respect to a flourishing denial in its
own columns by Mr. Johnston,
whioh the morning paper appears to
expect, we may state, for its delectation, tbat Mr. Johnston, very properly, entertains too strong a contempt For Llie sheet in question to
defend himself in its columns. Without Mr. Johnston's knowledge, we
published our correction of Truths (I)
false insinuation, on Friday last.
The next day Mr. Johnston called
at this oilice und thanked us for
voluntarily correcting tho utterly
groundless insinuation concerning
him ; lie expressed himself perfectly
siitistied with the contradiction iu
this paper, and intimated that ho
would scorn to have his namo appear in tho columns of the morning
pajjer in contradiction of such a
gratuitous and contemptible false'
hood. We owe our readers nn apology for noticing a comparatively
trivial matter at such length. It is
not so much the matter, howover,
ns the principle that induced us to
notice tho question again, Truth's
(?) malign influence is bound to affect a few in tho community. It ia
well, therefore, that its truo characteristics should bo pointed out occasionally. Otherwise it is beneath
notice.
besaid.to have been represented.
Horo were leading, lights of fashion,
thoro popular actors; playwrights
jostled stockbrokers, and guardsmen
from Wellington barracks and cavaliers from Canterbury olbowed solicitors and financial agents. Music-
hall proprietors, negro comedians,
and theatrical managers were packed
like sardines with foreign oilice clerks,
racing men and newspaper owners.
At least two composers could linve
found inspiration fora 'burly-burly'
chorus from the dm by which their
cars were greeted, and writers of
comic copy might fairly have annexed some of the jokes whicli country squires,had brought with tbem
for the edification of Londoners.
But bo it remembered that all these
spectators wore in faultless ovening
garb, that not oven tbe smoke of a
cigarette roso towards tlio electric
girandoles, whilo no oaths or coarse
languago defiled the attendance,
which wus positively saintlike in its
demeanor, The lack of refreshment
was u great inconvenience." From
tbe preceding remarks it is very
clear that the exhibition of fustic
brutality was patronised by many
persons of prominence in "society",
and tho fact that tho encounter came
oll'nt a fashionableclubhouselikethnt
of tlio "Pelican" is proof positive
that this "glove contest" was no second rate affair, but on the contrary
quite "the thing." That it was a
prize fight pure and simple is only
too evident from a perusal of the
particulars, Thus the accounts,
aftor gloating over a great deal of
brutality, decluro that "Smith was
knocked nil over tho ring and had to
cling to the ropes to prevent himself
from falling," and then add that
"the colored man struck Smith repeatedly in the faco, tho latter being
quito 'incapable of returning the
blows."
Tho question at once arises,
Wiiore wero the police, and why
did they not prevent this affray 1
Prizo lighting is illegal in England,
and it seems scarcely credible thnt
such a vory representative gathering
of spectators could have been in
"tha know," in regard to tho contest without some inkling' of what
was about to happen reaching the
cars of tho authorities. Cock lighting, bull baiting, and tho manly art
were in high favor with Englishmen
of a bygono generation, but so was
habitual intoxication, and we had
hoped that sport of the. prize ring
order had gono out with the last of
the threo bottlo men. It seems,
however, as though the jenncsse
done of to-day nro apeiiig tlm blackguardism of the past without the excuses of their predecessors. It is
high time that Mr. Secretary Matthews should awake to the faet that
tbo purlieus of Piccadilly and Pall
Mull aro after all very little bottor
than the courts and thieves' kitchens
around RatoliQ: highway, if thero is
a tittlo of truth in the disgusting
revolutions brought to this country
ovor the cables. The club houses
scein to have degenerated into gambling hells or worse, and nameless
horrors are reported as being perpetrated by the rising aristocracy of
the greatest ompire the world has
yot seen. For the credit of our com
mon race, for the good name of tho
mother country, we hopo that much
has been exaggerated, but it behooves tho government of England
to see that tho law is obeyed, and
that oiTenders, no matter what their
or position in society, aro brought to
justice for their misdeeds*.
Piuzk lighting as a sport seems to
sUiid a fair chanco of revival.   Of
course tho practice of the manly art
has never yet died out, but tho brand
of the law having been fixed 0u it,
sporting eentlemen liavo had  to bo
satisfii'd wiih currying on tho little
git mo nub rasa, more or loss.   Tho
vigilant policumnn has had to be
wutchtd, mid Ins caglocyo diverted
by ull manner of means, to  enable
combatants tu blacken euch other's
optics, or pound each   other   into
jelly, all in the interest of "sport,"
But a revival of old times seems to
be imminent, and prizo fighting, so
far from being dono us a polite art,
!b still   iu   high  favor  with   tho
"cream of society."   That such ia n
fact il conclusively proved by tbe
accounts of a "glove contest" whioh
recently took place at the  Pelican
olub in the fashionable west end of
London.   Tho combatants wero Join
Smith, tho champion heavy weight

EPIDEMIC DISEASES'
Precautions to  Be  Adopted to
Prevent Their Spread.
An important memorandum on tbe pro*
eeedtngs which 01*0 advisable ln places attacked or threatened with epidemic disease,
which hns been drawn up by Dr. George
Buchanan, F. R. S., bas been issued to sanitary authorities by tho Local Government
Board. In this memorandum, says the
London Timts, It is Btated that whenever
there Is prevalence or threatening of cholera, diphtheria, fevor or any othor epidemic
ulsoase, it is of moro than common Importance that the statutory powers conferred
upon sanitary authorities for tho protection
of tho publio health should be well oxer-
eisod by those authorities acting with the
advico of their medical officers of health.
Proper precautions are equally requisite
atiou should bc regarded as capable of communicating an infectious quality to any
oightsoil with whieh thoy are mingled in
privies, drains, or cesspools; and after
suuli disinfection of tho mass is practicable,
they Bhould bo disposed of without delay
ond under the safest conditions that locul
circumstances permit. Thoy should not bc
thrown Into nny fixed privy receptacle, nnd
above all they must nover bo cast where
they can run or soak Into sources of drink-
lug water.
All reasonable care should bo taken not
to allow infective disease to spread by the
unnecessary association of nick with healthy
porsons, This caro is requisite, not only
With regard to the sick house, but likewise
with regard to schools and othor establishments wherein members of many different
households aro accustomed to moot.
Ifdiscaso begins in houses whoro tho
sick porson can not bo property accommodated and tended, medical advico should bo
taken us to tho propriety of removing him
to an infirmary or hospital. Every sanitary
authority should havo in readiness a hospital for tho reception of euch cases.
Whoro dangerous conditions of residences can not bo promptly roniedicd it
will bo best tlmt tho mmatos, while unut-
tacltcd by disoaso, remove to somo safer
lodging. Privation, as predisposing to disease, may require special measures of rolief.
In certain caaos special medical arrangements aro nocossary. For instance, as cases
of cholera in thia country often bcglu somewhat gradually in tho comparatively tractable form of what is callod "promonitory
diarrhea," it is essential that, whero cholera
linn appoared, arrangements should bo
made for affording medical relief without
delay to persons attacked ovon, slightly
with loosonoBs of bowols. So, again, whon
smull-pox Ib tho prevailing disease, it is essential that all unvacoinatod persons (uu*
less they previously havo had small-pox)
should vory promptly bo vaccinated; and
tbat revaccination should bo performed in
cases properly requiring it.

For tho lirat time in ihu Imtjry.uf

in Wufllmuiator lust night. Uy mino
meant, tho now telephone .lino got
crossed with an electric light wire in
Vancouver, and Mr George Pittendrigh, the local manager, noticing that
something wna wrcug, disconnected tho
Vancouver lino and olosed it to tho
ground liuu. In doing so ho recoived
a shock so sovoro that ho dropped both
wires and fairly danced with pain.
Knowing that aomo unusual power was
at work on tho wires, Mr. Pittendrigh
procured a carbon and attached it to
the ground wiro, brought tho Vancouver lino in close proximity to it, and in
an instant tho central telephone oilice
was nbltti.e with electric light. The
stolon light lasted some timo, but was
dually shut oil', and tho telephonists
wero once more reduced tu probe theft

flcnullllll  Hiiow.
About noon yesterday snow commenced to fall, coming from thu northwest in strVill ll'ikes. A little later tho
wind veered to the wost and then the
southwest and tho flakes becamo larger
and tho fall moro sleady and heavier.
During, tho wholo afternoon and evening tho "beautiful" descended, and
when tho sky finally cleared about
throo inches of snow had fallen in tho
lower, mid four and a half inches iu
the upper portion of the city. Church-
guing people on their return homo
last ovening experienced a vory fatiguing journey up tho hill, and many wero
completely "dono out" boforo reaching
home.
This morning tho corporation gang
got to work bright and curly, aud cleared all street crossings in the lower
part uf tho city. The weather oet in
mild, and tho probabilities aro that a
couple of days will Eee the last of the
snow. No attempt at sleighing Mas
made, except by tho small boys on
coasting sleds, aa the snow was too
plushy and tho ground underneath too
soft. A few telephone and telegraph
wires Buffered, but beyond this no
damage waa dono.
Drift Floatm.
Mr. William Smith, deputy ministor
of marine, has issued the following
notice to mariners: Lieut. Commander Chas. H. Stockton, commanding
U. S. S. Thetis, reports that, during
thu past summer, whilo on the nortii
and northwest coasts of Alaska tlto
Thetis set adrift numerous drift float.-.
The floats aro made of wood, about two
feet long nud nine and a half inches
i hick, with tho name of the ship, date,
and tlio words "for drift" cut upon tho
fiice, In a cavity at ono ond of tho
float, plugged with euft wood, thoro ia
u cupper cylinder containing a lottor
requesting the finder to inform tho U.
S. hydraulic oflice, Washington, D. C.j
thu nearest U. S. consul, or tho commanding olliour of the Thetis, the time
and placo whore thu float wus found.
Theso different floats aro intended to
show tho direction nnd btrength of tho
currents off the coast of Alaska, and
nny information obtained from them
will bo of valuo to navigation. Musters
of Canadian vessels in British Colum*
bin nnd Alaska waters, ur residents on
tho const of British Columbia, finding
any of theso floats aro strongly urged
to comply with tho request contained
therein.
A Thrilling Eir.ii.it.
One of tho most thrilling and hairbreadth escapes that has boen chronicled in railroad history for a long time,
occured near Donald Saturday. From
onu of tho passengers a representative
of Thf. Columbian gleaned tho particulars of the accident, Tho Pacific express had proceeded west of Donald
about throe miles, whon oue uf the
sand boards of the Colonist sleeper bu-
camo detached und dropped to tho
rail throwing the car and threo following conches from tha track, Tho airbrakes worked Hlto ft charm, ami lho
train speedily came to a standstill.
Tho spot whero this accident occurred
wna near the mouth of a tunnel, and
at a plaeo whoro tho mail is eut out
of the sido of the mountain, thu lower
side being almost perpendicular fur
nearly 300 feot. When tho train
stopped three of the derailed enra ovor*
hung this terriblo precipice, only held
from an awful fall into the depths bo
luw by tho strength of tho coupling.-*.
Tho accidont together, with tho peril,
ous ait tuition in whioh the livos of ull
wero placed, caused muoh consternation
among the passengers, and thu agony
oudured by aomo of them during the
fo w minutes that passed beforo they
cuuld bu removed, was something in*
tense, and nover to bo forgotten.
Conductor Unwin, who waa in chargo
of tho train, behaved with the utmost
eoolneas throughout, and his cheery
manner and quiet way served to ru-
assure mnny of the paBBeneers whose
nerves hud sustained a rude shock by
tho mishap. Juokscrowa were quickly
got nut nnd placed under the ondungur-
ed coaches, und by theso moans they
wero once more set upon the raits and
the train proceeded, roaohing its destination yesterday afternoon without
further accident.

A moro unfavorable day tlrtu today
for inducing tho ratepayora nf YYeah-
initister to attend tho polls could not
havo boon mado to order, ami thus
tho BmallucBS uf tho voto ia easily accounted for. The roada and sidewalks
wore covered with slush, and walking
was so unpleasant and fatiguing that
many voters living quite close to the
polls refused to mako their wny thither
unless a carriago was provided. Aa
moBtof tho carriages wcreiu Vancouver, it waa dillicult lo oblige all who

many vutoa remained unpolled. The
lack of any very important iwuo iu tho

probably much to do with lho small-

CRIMINAL COURT.
Before Uis Honor Jiulgo Bole.
A warrant waa iaBued for tho
arrest of Ah Toy, one of the
witnesses summoned in the Foo Sing,
robbing with violence ut Ladners, case,
and who did not appear. Edward
O'Brien, tho victim of the crime, was
the first occupant of the witness stand.
Tho indictment waa road over to tho
prisoner nnd ho pleaded not guilty.
Tho witness stated that on Sunday,
Nov. 17th, ho met tho prisoner half
way between Ladner's Landing nnd
]iia farm. They travelled on for aomo
limo until they camo to a fallen tree,
on wliich they ant for a while and
prisoner told witness he had cut his
foot with an axe; witnoss told him to
come to his houso and ho would give
him somo sticking pluster. While at
tho housu the prisoner acted vory imprudently and witness ordered him out,
nfter having givon him a meal, Tho
Chinnman returned ubout tin horn1 later
whilo witness was lighting a lire iu lhe
stove, and throwing hia arms around
witness' neck pushed hia hoad into
tho blading wood; an old felt hat which
witness was wearing fell forward and
saved his face.' Witness' hands were
burned. Prisoner then snatched his
watch away, breaking tho chain, thon
jumped up and took witness' shotgun
out of a comer near the door, and ran
away bareheaded, across tho fields.
Tho gun was loaded. Prisoner dropped his hut in tho flight uud witness
delivered it to tbo magistrate nt Lad*
ner's Lauding.
Tho priioner stated, through an interpreter Cum Vow, that witness hud
given him whiskey nud neither food
nor sticking plaster. Witness admitted that he had offered prisoner some
brandy, but the latter refused it. Witness positively identified the priaonor
ns tho man who robbed aud assaulted
him, having scon him ofton beiorc.
Ah Toy, for whoso arrest n warrant
had been issued, turned up a few minutes boforo his namo on tho liat of
witnesses camo round. He took tho
atind and waa told thnt if ho did not
answer tho questions directly ho would
bo sont up for a year; thia had the do-
Bircd effect. Witness, prisoner and
four othors wont over the river from
Ladner'a Landing. On returning
witness aaid that prisoner had no hat.
Several other witnesses gavo evidence
in the case.
Chas. Calhoun Baid he had nover
figured in the witness stand before and
evidently thought tho best way to do
waa lo fence tho questions. His honor called hia attention to the warning
thut had anfliced for tho Chinese
witness, His honor finally ordered
him uut of lho box. His honor sentenced tho prisoner to seven yoars'
ponal servitude,
Tho case of E. Sualun, the man
charged with receiving stolen goods,
knowing them to bo stolon, was tho
next, and the evidence wns identical
with thnt already given in tho polico
court and reported in theso columns.
A clear caso wns mado out, and his
lienor in imposing a sentence of 3 years
and 0 months in penitentiary Baid ho
was determined to put a stop to this
spucicB of crimo in the city, WestminBter hud enjoyed a comparative
immunity from it in tho pant, und be
would see that it did not become epidemic, Hia honor jib goud aa promised that tlio next cnau nf this kind that
came beforo him would meet with a
punishment thnt would likely atop all
such crimes horo.

Will you kindly allow mo spaco iu your
