The' Bankrupt Roads.
Washington, Feb. 17.—The report of
the senate committee on the Pacific railways, with the bills for the funding of
the debt of tho road, was made public
to-night. The report ia veiy lengthy,
as is also the bill. In substance the report finds that the roads are unable to
pay their indebtedness, aud therefore
believes that the debts should be funds,
and the time oxtended. The bill provides that the Central Pacific be required to pay to pay two per cent interest on their indebtedness, and one and
a third per cent, of the debt annually
for 75 years, at the end of which time
the debt will be paid. As the road has
extensive improvements to make they
can use half of the interest for the first
ten years for that purpose.
The Union Pacific and Branches must
pay three per cent, interest annually on
indebtedness for fifty years. These payments must be paid semi-annually. The
attorney-general is required to make
annual reports to congress showing that
the roads have fulfilled these requirements. If any of the roads fail to make
these payments within DO days after the
payment is duo the ' secretary of the
treasury is empowered to foreclose the
mortgages and take possession.

house and pulling out a revolver, shot

Appalling Mortality.

in the country east and south of Okla-
hama from influenza. Indian Agent
Kuhn, from the Shaw-Nee nation, estimates nearly one hundred of that tribe
have died within a week from the disease, about two-thirds of them being
children. The stricken tribes seem to
have lost heart. When the grippe first
appeared among them, medicine men
ministered to thoir wants, but they only
seem to have aggravated tbe disease,

numerous the Indians refuse all offers
of assistance, and just lie down and die.
A Wife's Treachery.

A Pish Story.
Eldoba, Feb. 15.—This town comes to
the front with a startling fish story that
is vouched for aB true in every particular. It is recited that John Webster
with several boon companions made a
fishing excursion down the Iowa River.
They cut holes in the ice and speared a
fine piko. Cutting it open they were
much surprised to find within a flat
pocket book containing $05 in gold, $15
in silver, $75 In bank notes, $10,000 in
bonds nnd a certificate of deposit on a
bank of JohnBtown, Pa., for ij-25. A slip
df paper was also found bearing a statement that the book and contents bo-
longed to John J. Jones, of Johnstown,
who was supposed to have perished in
the terrible flood. There Is no doubt
that the fish made itB way to the lown
by traversing the famous Conemaugh
River in Pensylvania into the Allo-
Shelijr", then to the Ohio, then to the
Mississippi, and up into tbe Iowa River,
mainland rights.
Delegates   From  All Parts of the
District Meet and Adopt
a Platform,
Mainland Rights  and  Representation by Population are the
Main Issues Discussed.
A Broad  and  Liberal-Minded  Discussion ou the Leading Questions of the Day.
The meeting of the Central Executive
of tho Mainland Associations of New
Westminster district wbb held at the
city hall on Saturday night. Thoro was
a full attendance of delegates, and uo
part of the district was unrepresented.
The meeting wbb not called to order until 0 o'clock, owing to the Vancouver
train being delayed en rou e. There was
some dissatisfaction expressed by thu
country members, who had eome long
distances, at groat expense and inconvenience, and who thought the Vancouver delegates might have come over
earlier in the day in order tliat no unnecessary del, y of the important proceedings ehould be chanced. However,
when once the meeting got to work it
soon made up for lust time.
After the delegates had filed their
credentials, Mayor Brown took the chair
and called tho meeting to order. Tho
secretary then read the list of accredited
delegates as follows:
Vancouver—Messrs. R. H. Alexandor,
Thos. Dunn and J. H. Templeton.
New WestminBter—Messra. J. C.
Brown, A. Ewen, W. B. TowiiBendand
D. Robson.
Maple Ridge—Messrs. W. J. Harris,
D. C. Webber and Joseph Stephens.
Burton Prairie—Capt.  L. Thompson,
Langley—Messrs. Henry Harris and
Henry Davis.
Surrey—Messrs. James Punch, TIiob.
Shannon and H. T. Thrift.
Chilliwack—Messrs. Thos. E. Kitchen, A. Davison and D. McGillivray.
Port Moody—Mr. J. T. Scott.
Sydenham—Mr. A, B. Walworth.
Mission—Dr. G. F. Boddington.
North Arm—Mr. J. W. Lawson.
Richmond—Messrs. J. W. Sexsmith,
O. D. Sweet and Thos. Kidd.
Agasfliz—Mr. McDonald.
The minutes of the first meeting of
the Vancouver aud Westininster associations were read and adopted.
The secretary then calledon the meeting to elect a president for the year.
Moved by Thos. Dunn, seconded by
O. D. Sweet, that Mr. J. C. Brown be
elected president of the Mainland Association.   Carried unanimously.
Mayor Brown took the chair and returned thanks for the honor in a few
Well chosen words. He Baid he would
do his duty faithfully and guard the interests of the association to tho best of
his ability. The idea in tho first place
had been to form mainland associations
in all parts of the district, municipalities and settlements, as well as the cities
of Vancouver and Westminster. Those
associations would be in a manner independent, but always bearing allegiance
to the central executive. The proposed
platform waB neither aggressive nor sectional, but was prepared with the intention nnd for the purpose of giving the
govornment the fullest possiblo idea of
the population of the district and its
rights as regards parliamentary representation. It was also the intention that
this meeting would be able, aB it wero,
to focus the whole Mainland feeling in
its proceedings. The Mainland Association was not opposed to the Island, but
we want simply to maintain our rights,
to get what we ure entitled to in the way
of representation. We have no flght
with the Island, but oii tlie contrary we
would stand together and assist the Island were she not being properly treated. All we want is proper representation in the local house, representation
by population, and we must have it,
that is, if we are to give that respect
and cheerful obedience to the laws of
tbe country which we should.
The President then asked the meeting
to elect a secretary. The names of Mr.
D. Robson and Mr. Hershburg were
mentioned, but both gentlemen declined
to act.
Mr. D. RobBon proposed the name of
Mr. R. H. Alexander.
Mr. Alevauder thought the secretary
Bhould reside at Westminster so that
the business of the association might bo
facilitated.
Other delegates thought the same, but
the majority did not think the residenco
of the secretary would make a great difference with telephone and telegraph
communication so convenient.
Mr. Alexander finally consented to
nomination and was elected unanimously.
The delegations then handed in their
nomination of vice-presidents as follows:
Vancouver, Thos. Dunn; New WestminBter, A. Ewon; Maple Ridge, W. J. Harris ; Burton Prairie, Capt. L. Thompson;
Langley, Henry Harris j Chilliwack, D.
McGillivray; Port Moody, J. D. Scott;
Sydenham, J. W. Walworth; Mission,
Dr. Boddington; Surrey, Jaa. Punch;
Richmond, J. W. Sexsmith; Agassiz,
Mr. McDonald; North Arm, J. W. Lawaon.
Voting on the clauses of the constitution was the next business, and it wbb
adopted as follows:
Resolved—That tho Central Executive
shall consist of four delegates from each
of tlio cities of Vancouver and New
Westminster, three delegates from every
othor Municipality iu the district, ana
one delegate from*euch settlement not
included in any Municipality:
That all delegates must be accredited
by a regularly organized "Mainland Association" of the Municipality or Settlement which thoy represent:
That oflicers be elected at the annual
meeting in each yoar;
That J. C. Brown be Presidentforthis
year;
That each city and municipal delegation elect ono of their number to bo a
Vice-President and that the dolegato
from each settlement be a Vice-President ;
ThatR. H. Alloxander bo Secretary-
Treasurer for this year:
That City Associations bo assessed $20
per annum, Municipal Associations $5
der anu., and Settlement Associations
$2 per aim.; aud that such assessments
must be paid beforo tho delegates take
their seats;
That tho Contral Executive meet at
tho call of the President, and that five
members be a quorum:
That the President shall call a meeting at the request of any five dolegates:
That tho duties of the officers shall bo
such as are generally implied by their
titles.
Tho platform thon camo up for discus**
sion. and clauses ono and two passed
with slight amendments.
Clause throo, which provides for dividing tho district into ridings, brought
up a goneral discussion.
Mr. Harris, of Maple Ridge, said tho
district, excluding Vancouver, should be
divided into four ridings, to bo known
as the East, West, North and South ridings of Now Westminster District.
Mr, Davis, of Langley, thought thore
should be no specified numbor of ridings
fixed at this meeting, but when tho vot
ing population was known tho number
of ridings the district is entitled to
should then be insisted ou. The number might be more than four.
Capt. Thompson, of Burton Prairie,
said the poople throughout the country
were unanimous in having tho district
divided into ridings, but he thought
they would be against making the names
local; it would be better to retain the
name of New Westminster, and cut the
district into aB many ridings aB it ia entitled to.
Mr. Kidd, of Richmond, thought a
division of the district would reduce our
strength, as some parts are more thickly
populated thon others.
Mr. Thrift, of Surrey, was of the
opinion that a division of tho district
would bo the best plan, and ho thought
the district, excluding the cities of Westminster and Vancouver, was fairly
entitled to five members. The people of
Surrey wero unanimous in asking for
ridings.
Mr. Alexandor, of Vancouver, favored
a division of the district. He considered
thnt it should be thoroughly impressed
ou the Govornment that a single voter
should only have a single vote. The
practice of oue voter voting for more
than ono person was not just, and he
would support no measure that would
entitle a man to more than one vote.
Mr. McGillivray, of Chilliwack, did
not think anything would be gained,
while much might be lost by leaving the
district undivided. One populous comer
corner of the district might elect the
whole lot of members, and that would
neither he just or right.
Dr.  Boddington expressed the same
views as the lust speaker, and though,
i very portion of the district should b
given a fair share of representation.
Mr, David Robson agreed as to the
division of the district, but thought the
cities should not be divided info ridings.
Mr. Thos. Dunn, Vancouver, disagreed
with Mr. Robson; Montreal and Toronto,
the leading cities of Canada, were
divided into electoral districts.
Mr. Templeton, Vancouver, corrected
Mr. Dunn, and informed the meeting
that Toronto had swept away electoral
districts and now elected its members
on the general vote—each voter being
entitled to vote for only two candidates.
Mayor Brown thought the division of
the district Bhould be strongly emphasized.
The clause was finally amended and
a The question of naming the association the Mainland Association of British
Columbia, or the Mainland Association
of New Westminster District, was raised
by Mr. McGillivray who pointed out that
it might be assuming too much for this
district to speak for the whole Mainland, and other parts of the country
might resent it.
Mr. Dunn said there had been no
other intention in organizing the association, than to make it anything else than
a general Mainland organization.
Mr. Hirschburg informed the meeting
that every part of the Province had been
apprised of the formation of the Mainland association, and each section of the
country had been aBked to organize
branches. He had been instructed that
Mainland associations had already been
formed in Yale * district, and he was
positive other parts of the country would
soon organizo in the same direction.
Capt. Thompson thought the mainland
Central Executive should embrace the
whole province, and that as soon as
possible every part of the country Bhould
be welded together under a general
mainland association. The heading of
the proposed constitution and platform
sent out made it a purely local affair.
Mayor Brown, the president, said he
believed he was responsible for' the title
and wished to explain why he had
adopted that form ot worda. His idea
was an association with its own officers
nnd organization, in every municipality
and settlement throughout the main-
laud, with a central executive for each
district, aud a supreme executive corn-
composed of delegates from these, thus
representing the feelings and opinions of
the whole Mainland. This explanation
was received with applause, and the
question "shall the title stand*' waB carried unanimously.
The platform as amended was then
adopted as follows:
Resolved (1) That the Contral Executive will in no way interfere in any
party politics, as such; but will be governed by the principle, "measures, not
men."
(2) That as it is the primary object of
tho Association to insist upon population
being made tho basis of representation
as nearly bb practicable, the Contral Executive will use its best endeavors to
that end, provided that until the next
census the number of voters be
taken aB the basis of representation.
(3) That the constituency now known
as New Westininster District, excluding
Vancouver, should be divided into as
many ridings, or constituencies bearing
local names, as will give it, with one
member for each constituency, the number of members to which it shall be
entitled; and this Executive hopes to
see this principle applied to all other
districts in the province.
(4) That Vancouver shall be a separate constituency, and tbat the representation of Vancouver and New Westminster shall be based upon population;
(5) That constituencies be recommended strictly to adhere to the principle of electing (except, of course, in
the caso of representatives who are
cabinet ministers) none but bona fide
residents to represent them hi the Legislature.
(6) That it shall be the duty of the
Central Executive to call upon every
local Association; to aid by holding
meetings, passing resolutions, etc., any
constituency which may appear to be
unjustly dealt with.
(7) That this constitution may bo
amended only at au annual meeting by
a two-thirds vote of the members present ; or by the assent of two-thirds of
the local Associations aa expressed by
resolution approving of the proposed
amendment.
Capt. Thompson moved that alt districts of the Mainland be asked to form
associations with central committees,
the latter to form the Supreme Executive
of the Mainland Association. Seconded
and carried.
A discussion as to the place at which
tho noxt annual meeting would be held,
wbb ended by Mr. McGillivray, who
moved that tho next annual meeting of
the Association be held at New Westminster on the last Wednesday in November of thia year j and that tlio place
of subsequent' meetings be resolved on
at each meoting.
A discussion followed upon what steps
should be taken by the association to
Influence legislation on the redistribution question when the government
measure shall have been brought down,
and, on motion of Captain Thompson,
and an amendment by Mr. Harris, it
was decided that at the earliest possible
moment after the bill is brought down
the Central Executive be called together
to consider it, and that copies oftho
bill be distributed as early as possible
among the local associations for their
consideration.
It being a part of the programme tliat
members of the Local House who were
present should be called upou to address
the delegates, the president called upon
Mr. Ladner, M.P.P., who had just ontered tho hall, to favor the meeting
with an address. (It should be mentioned that Mr. Thomas Cunningham,
member for this city, as well aB Mr.
Ladner. was present at an earlier hour
of the evoning, but both gentlemen had retired.) Mr. Ladner came
fo.ward   with his   well-known gonial

THE MAINLAND ASSOCIATION.
Tub meeting uf the Central Executive
in this city Saturday night must have
struck uvery observer present as being a
thoroughly representative, earnest aud
business-like convention. Tho delegates
assembled, representing Vancouvor,
New Westminster, ami tho district at
large, knew just what thoy wanted to
do, and wasted no time in doing it, and
the utmost harmony aud unanimity of
sentiment characterized the proceedings
throughout, us well as a complote
absence of the offensive sectional spirit
—the expression of one of the speakers,
to the effect that the Mainland Association would just ns readily assist an
Island constituency to secure its rights
as it would a Mainland one, being heartily endorsed.
In its selection of Mayor Brown, of
this city, as president, and Mr. R. H.
Alexander, of Vancouver, as secretary-
treasurer, for the ensuing year, the Con
tral Executive made a wise choice, as
both gentlemen have the Mainland As
sociation movement thoroughly at heart
and will make most energetic and efficient officers in furthering the important
objects for which it waB organized.
If one thing was emphasized more
than another at the meeting on Saturday night, it was the unmistakable ex*
pression of the delegates In favor of
dividing the district into ridings or
single member constituencies, and of
extending the principle to every electoral distiict in the Province, city or
otherwise. It wbb apparent from the
expressions of the district delegates that
the prevailing impression iu the muni*
clpalities and settlements is that West*
minster District is fairly entitled to increased representation, independent of
Vancouver City altogether,
Although, owing principally to the
necessity of an early date for the first
meeting of the Central Executive, no
delegates were present from interior dis*
tricts, it was clearly stated, ou Saturday
night, by the president, and unanimous*
Iy approved, that this executive should
use its best endeavors to have branches
of the Mainland Association organized
in every district on the Mainland, from
which a grand Central Executive, representing the wholo Mainland, could be
formed. The proposition ia au excellent
one, and, judging from the success that
has attended the movement sinco its inception a few weeks ago, thore is ovory
probability of it being carried out.
The Mainland Association as a wholo
is plainly destined to accomplish much
good, apart even from the specific object
of its formation, in promoting and keep*
ing alive a healthy interest in polities
lind supplying a ready and potent means
by which intelligent public opinion can
be brought to bear upon legislation,
. Provincial and Dominion. The local
branches of the association, in tho rural
communities particularly, will be able to
do valuable and much needed work besides in seeing that nil eligible names
are placed upon the voters' lists—u matter whicb, being "everybody's business,
haB been nobody's business" in the
past, has beeu sadly neglected. It is to
be hoped, as Mayor Brown, president of
the Central Executive, so strongly urged
on Saturday night, that this very important business of adding duly qualified
names to tho voters' register will now
be undertaken in earnest and pushed
vigorously in every municipality and
settlement of the district.
PARNELL  COMMISSION  REPORT.
The report of the Parnell Commissioners has been printed and presented to
the Imperial House of Commons. Tho
leading conclusions arrived at by Sir
James Hannen and his colleagues were
summarised in our despatches of Friday
evening's issue, and we may remark
that, ob we anticipated long before
Christmas, the court has given so ambiguous a report in some respects that both
sides claim to have scored a victory.
Thus, while the Times says that " if on
" certain points we are held not to have
" established our statements, the gen-
" eral effect of whnt we said remains
" unchanged," the general verdict of
the English press seems to bo that, to
all intents aud purposes, tho Commissioners' report exonerates Mr. Parnell
and his friends from the very serious
charges brought against thein in the
columns of the Times,
The various charges against Mr. Parnell
are declared unproved, and the report
states that he denounced tho Phtunix
Park murders in all sincerity, that he
was not intimate with criminals, and
that neither he nor his political associates were aware that the Clan-Na-Gael
collected money for the American
branch of the Land League. The highly
iu port ant decision Is given that the
judges had no evidence to show that the
Invincibles were a branch of the Land
League, and it is put emphatically on
record that the " League neither paid
"nor organized the Invincibles." It must
never for one moment be forgotten that
except for the publication in the Timet
of the Pigott forgeries the Commission
would hove had no rat'«on d'etre, and not
only are those letters declared frauds,
but" utterly unworthy of credit; all the
"letters he produced as criminating
" were forgeries."
On the other hand, tho Commissioners'
report declares that the Laud League
gave no assistance to the authorities In
detecting crime. Itls hard to understand how the authorities could have expected it. The League was a purely political association, but no sooner did it
begin to show itself a reality, and of
practical utility to the oppressed tenants, tiian coercive measures were passed through Parliament to suppress It
and drive legitimate discontent beneath
the surface, there to fester and bubble
until it erupted in the form of Fenian-
ism, Ribbon Societies, and what not.
Had the authorities recognized the fact
that tho Land League was sb purely a
political association aB, say the Primrose
League, most of the trouble and agrarian
crime would have never happened.
When men are prevented by law from
airing their grievances iu the legitimate
channels of the press and platform, they
sometimes fly to the wicked methods of
the secret societies.
Tho judges complain that they received vory littlo assistance from Mr.
Parnell and his colleagues. This is
really too ludicrous. When tho
question of appointing tho Commission
wbb before Parliament, not only Mr.
Parnoll, but Mr. Gladstone and Iub
frionds, declared that the proper tribunal to inquire iuto the Times' charges
was a committeo of tho House of Com*
mons. It wub pointed out thut such a
tribunal could be equipped with all tho
powers of a court of justice, without tho
formalities of procedure so necessary, iu
due maintenance of decency and order,
with purely legal tribunals, but absolutely non-essential and out of place in
an enquiry conducted by a committeo of
thu Huuso itself. It wbb the suggestion
of Sir Charles Lewis, a supporter of the
Government, that the Times' artioles
were a "breach of privilego," and both
tho Liberal und Parnellite parties in the
House were roady to treat thein as such
iu the usual manner by an enquiry be*
fore a select committee.
We have in a previous issue gono into
detail over this mattor of the appointment of a commission of judges, in spite
of the protests of the Liberal and Irish
partioB, and here wo merely state that
the predictions of certain Liberals that
the Commission would prove vastly expensive and of little practical utility
have been moro than verified. Before
such a tribunal, appointed by a tyrannous majority in spite of the protests of
two great parties in the State, Mr. Parnell had no necessity to appear oxcept
to vindicate his character, and that done
he very properly withdrew from any
further participation in the Government
game of endeavouring to whitewash the
falsehoods of tho party and its mouth
piece the Times.
The judges report that Mr, Davitt
and others conspired to bring about the
absolute separation of Ireland from
Great Britain. We nevor doubted it,
for Mr. Davitt himself gave evidence to
that effect. Evoryono knows that once
he was a Feuian, but everyone knows,
too, that for years paat ho haB advocated
purely constitutional means, and declared himself satisfied with the proposals of Mr. Gladstone in relation to
the government of Ireland. It is time
the cant about rebellion was dropped,
for the word to a great extent means, in
everyday talk, lack of success. Had
Smith O'Brien attained his end, or
Stephens succeeded iu separating the
Emerald Isle from Groat Britain, to-day
the very men who mark them down for
conspirators and rebols would be fouud
painting the sky with laudations of their
love of country. Whatever faults Mr.
Davitt has, at least fear is uot one of
them; and just as, when a too zealous
young Fenian, he helped to raid Chester
Castlo; so, iu later years, with mature)-
thoughts but as great a lovo for his
country, he declares, "I favor Mr. Par-
"noil's constitutional methods for ob-
•'taming self-government for my conn-
"try, but were I convinced those means
"would be of no avail, I would favor re-
"bellion to-morrow." With bucIi a
declaration to go upon, it iB no wonder
the judges came to be vory severe in
dealing with Michael Davitt. Everybody, however, knew his unbending nature and the uncompromising position
he has marked out for himself, and the
judges' report merely servos to emphasize hiB already known sentiments.
Upon the whole, the report of the
Commissioners is more favorable to tho
Irish party than we dared anticipate,
looking at tho nature of that court's
composition and the manner in which
the judges 'declined to assent to Sir
Charles Russell's demand for the production of the books of the Loyal and
Patriotic League. A higher tribunal
than the Commission has long ago decided the question of the criminality or
otherwise of the Home Rule movement,
and In the face of Public Opinion it
really matters little what Sir James Han-
non and his colleagues care to say relative to the political character of the Irish
leaders. The cause of Ireland is just
where it was, moving on the high road
which leads to that "inalienable right
"of a free people to govern themselves,'
and both voluminous reports and coercive legislation will be fouud as powerless to stay the maich of Liberal principles as Mrs, Partington's mop was to
prevent the approach of the Atlantic
tide.  _
SCIENTIFIC   MISCELLANY.
Dr. G. Munro Smith states that a diet
of 12 to 14 ounces of chemically dry food,
digestible and with the ingredients iu
propor proportion, is sufficient for the
daily needs of an average-sized man on
moderate work. Moat persons eat literally twice aa muoh.
The reports of the Challenger exploring expedition, which have been issued
at irregular intervals during the last
nine years, now form 47 quarto volumes,
containing 27,550 pages of letterpress,
2062 lithographic plates, 413 maps and
diagrams, and a great number of wood
cuts.
An inventor of Belfast, Ireland, has
made a pneumatic tire for bicycles that
is claimed to destroy all vibration, It is
about 2% inches iu diameter, and consists of an outer covering of rubber enclosing an inner air-tube. Air Is pumped
in by a foot-blower, and a valve prevents
Its return.
Potatoe paint is a novelty, which is
said to adhere well to wood and plaster,
and to be very cheap. To make it, boil
one pound of peeled potatoes, mash,
dilute with water and pass through a
solve; then add two pounds of Spanish
white in four pounds of water, Different colors can be hod by tlie use of the
ordinary mineral powders.
The proposed ship canal across Italy
to connect the Tyrrhenian Sea with the
Adriatic is expected not only to afford
improved water communication for many
places, but to facilitate the drainage of
marshy dlstrlsts and to render 170 square
miles of lake area fit for cultivation.
The canal would be 124 miles long, 203
feet wide and 40 feet deep, and its cost
Is estimated by Signor Bpcca at $125,-
000.
The longest-lived people in the world
aro the Norwegians, among whom the
average duration of life is now 48.33
yoars for the men, 51.30 for the women,
and 49.77 for both sexes. The life-period
has increased in recent years. That it
has become 17 per cent, greater than in
Central and Western Europe is attributed by the director of the Statistical
Bureau to the comparatively slight mortality among the youngest children. An
inquiry into the causes of this infantile
healthfulness Bhould be made in the
interest of parents in all countries.
The liquefaction,of carbonic acid gas
on a large scale was first undertaken iu
Hanover ubout 20 years ago. The manufacture is now becoming of considerable importance, the chief uses of the
novel product being in browing and by
Krupp for compressing molten steel in
moulds to ensure solid castings. The
gas is liquefied by a pressure of about 30
atmospheres, the temperature being at
tho freezing point of water. One firm
iu Berlin sells daily 200 flasks—each of
about Vi}.. pounds—of the liquefied gas,
and Vienna produces about 1000 pounds
each 24 hours.
In the course of long investigation
Prof. Ponflck, of Hreshiu, has mado tho
important discovery that a large part of
tho liver—even bb much as three-fourths
—may be removed without serious disturbance of tho animal functions. Surgeons had beforo known that the whole
of tho livor is not absolutely essential to
health, but could hardly suppose that
the Buddon destruction of a considerable
part of it would not be soriotiB, and now
may be enabled to perform operations
hitherto believed to bo impossible.
Prof. Ponflck found that the liver has a
wonderful power of reproduction, in
some cases a portion equal to two-thirds
being replaced by a new growth within
a few weeks.
In a book on " Tho flght of the bird as
tho basis of the art of flying," a German
author, Herr Otto Lilienthal, describes
the results of 23 years experimenting
by himself and brother on the form of
wings best adapted for carrying heavy
bodies. He concludes—as have others—
that the real secret of a bird's flight lies
in the arching of its wings, which accounts for the small expenditure of
strength, and he believes that close imitation of the birds is the only method of
solving the problem of human flight.
The artificial wings of the investigators
have been made so effective aB to raise
half the weight of the operator, the ap*
paratus worked by foot-levers, being
made to rise with a person weighing 100
pounds when a counter-weight of 80
pounds is helping to lift by means of
suitablo pulleys.
A curious study has been made by a
German physioligist, Herr Tarchenotf.
Clay-elcctrodos, connected with a delicate galvanometer, were applied to the
hands, feot, toes, nose, car and back,
whon It was found that electrical currents of varying strength woro set up in
the skin by mental excitatiou of any
kind. Tickling with a brush or hot
water produced a strong current; and
cold or the pain of a pin-prick, a weaker effect. Impressions of sound, light,
taste and smell acted similarly. The
skin-currents were even produced by
imagining the sensations; aud when
caused by mental effort varied with the
amount of work,—a multiplication of
small numbers giving a weak current
aud of larger numbers a stronger one.
The currents seem to be connected with
the sweat-glands, which are aroused to
increaBed action by nearly every kind of
nerve-activity.
Photography is being applied to- tho
identification of bodies in acurioiiB man-
inaner by the Paris police. A knowledge
of the occupation of a murdered person
is often of importance, and us the hand
iB the part usually most affected by one's
work, Mr. Bertillon has taken a large
series of photographs, each one showing
the hands of a workman on a large scale
and his figure at work on a small scale,
The condition of the hands and the parts
that undergo friction may thus be seen at
a glanco. Among the characteristics
observed aro the following. From tho
hands of tho navvy the secondary lines
disappear, and a peculiar colloid ty is developed by friction of the spade handle;
the hands of tin-plate workers are covered with little cracks produced by acids;
tho hands of lace-makers are smooth
but the back has blisters and the front
of the shoulder callosities from the straps
of the loom; and the thumb and first
joints of the index of metal-workers
show large blisters, while the left hand
has scars made by sharp fragments of
metal.

KANGAROO  HUNTING.
Extensive Utilisation  ot Their   Hides In
the United Statei.
Thoro aro 0,000 kangaroo skins roceived in Newark, N. J., every week.
Thoy are all tanned in one large estab-
lUtiment on Sussex avenue, and are
then made Into fine shoes. Australia
and New Zealand furnish kangaroo
hides for the world. The kangaroos aro
killed in Australia about 300 miles hack
Trom the coast, and aro shipped from
Mel bourne, Sydney and Newcastle, in
Australia, and from Masterton, in Now
■'.i aland. Up to IMI* the kangaroos
'A-ero killed and eaten in Australia, and
their hides were cut into shoe-strings.
Itut an Englishman named Drown in
mat year discovered the remarkable
character of tbe leather, and brought
-teveral thousand skins to this country
lie tried to soil the hides to tanners;
tmt they wero shy of the novelty, and
uo bad to sell them at a sacrifice to
i book-binder. Tho book-bindor made
'riantfular corner pieces in ledgers and
'ommerclal books out of the skins, and
•o ascertained the good quality of
iho leather. It was in thiB way that
tho larger leather factories were first
attracted to kangaroo hide. Tho skin
was tumid to bo vory tenacious, and
Die compactness of the grain prevents
Hs absorbing wator, while the acids in
blacking meet with an almost impervious substanco. It was hard wurk for
years to get tbo kangaroo skins. It was
not until tho Newarker, who now tans
ihom, sent agonts to Australia three
years ago that the demand could ho supplied. Thf) characteristic climate or

kangaroo make hunting tho hldos dangerous. Winter starts in May and ends
in December in that country. Tho rost

The Fearful fate nf Aeronaut Van Tassel
at Honolulu.
Aeronaut Van Tnssol, who la well
known all over tho United States as a
daring adventuror among tho clouds, mot
tv fearful death at Honolulu not long
ngo by falling into the water from his
balloon, whoro ho was oaten by sharks,
The occasion of his laid, asoinslon wna
tho King's birthday. There was a grand
celebration, and tho festivities were to
conclude with a parachute leap. Shortly
beforo tliree o'olook Van Tassel entered
his balloon alono after all tho necessary
•^partitions had been made. The con
tXmmt wero favorable forhlslandingon
Jand, and when the balloon shot upward
tt wob thought he would not land more
Mian a half mite from the starting point.
The balloon amended steadily to tbo
height of ono thousand feot, when M
was caught by a breeze blowing seaward
and carried ovor tbo water
The aeronaut evidently saw ho must
tnevttab>y fall into tho water, and those
who wero watching him with glasses
how that bo was hurriedly making preparations for a descent. Suddenly the
parachute was lot looso, and the bag of
gas shot up higher into tbo air The
paraohute oponed nicely, and tho man
gracefully descended Into tho wafer
about two miles off shore.
That was tbo last seon of him Tho
steamer Zoalandia, which brought the
news, was at tho timo entering the harbor Two boats were immediately lowered, and tho men wero soon at the spot
where the than was last soon. Thoy
could find ne trace of him. Tho parachute had sunk, owing to tho weight of
Its iron, and threo or four monster
•-.hiM'ks were seon swimming noar by.
Thoy fr-jjpwod the boats back tu the
j-tteamor
Though the search was continued
afterward for several hours no trace wus
found. Van Tassel was a daring swim*
ntor, and undor ordinary elraumstiinoos
i'i hi Id not havo drowned before the boats
reached him. Tho hunt (or tits body has
been continued every day sinco tho accident, hut without avail. Tho mon
who woro in thn boats say Van Tassel
must have beon seized by tho sharks al
most immediately after he struck tho
water, for not more than eight minutes
elapsed from the timo the bouts wero
lowered until tho spot was reached whore
the daring man died.
News pf his death wus not long in
reaching shore, and Immediately thou*
Mapjla who )iud seen hlm go up weut to
tho beach, and wharves, and smnll boats
Without1 number wore vowed eastward.
The first diligent search was nut ended
until dark, and there If) no hope what*
ever of recovering the body now
Van Tassel waB well known in San
Francisco and throughout America.
There aro few largo cities In the Unit-
od State*) fn which he has not made as-
iiQMitmn, and few understand the business no well as he, as ho had been up
hundred"* of times. He made many as-
oonsions from Woodward's Garden, Central Park and the Ocean beach, and he
nuooessfully performed parachuto Jumps
In tbUcltyat tho beach a fow months
Ago. Ononooccaslon before the leap nearly cost blm his me, the parachute not
opening and descending with lightning

PULMONARY   DISORDERS.
Oat-Door Air and Exercise the Heat Remedies fur Consumption.
In the course of the last fifty years a
number ot observant physicians have
evinced a more and more outspoken conviction that pulmonary disorders make
no oxception to the general rule that all
diaeasos become more curable in cold
woather. Three generations ago all
lung troublos, almost without an exception, wero ascribed to the Influence
of cold air—a delusion perpetuated In
the still sadly misleading word "cold"
ns a synonym of catarrh, and in tho not
yet quite obsolete fashion of Bending
consumptives to an oarly grave in
tho sultry coast regions of tho
tropics. Cold night air, "draughts"
and "raw March winds" had become tho bugbears of lung-sick persons. A disease due to a low temperature seemed naturally to demand
warmth for its cure, and patients who
could not afford tho oxponso of a journoy
to Florida or tho West Indies wore kopt
penned up in the stilling atmosphere of
an overheated sick-room, with ovory
breath of fresh air carefully excluded.
Those delusions were first shaken by
tho result of comparative statistics, The
mortality records of every civilized
country east, west, north or south demonstrated tbo suggest! vo fact that tho
prevalence of consumption hears an exact proportion to tho prevalence uf indoor occupations. In pastoral Norway
pulmonary disorders woro found to be
less frequent tban In cotton-spinning
England; in frosty Switzerland less fro-
quent than In sunny France. Tho unanimous reports of Arctic travelers established tho still more remarkable circumstance that In tho polar rogiomt lung
diseases aro almost wholly unknown,
"duo to a diet of train oil." argued the
old-school doctors. "Lot us try thai
specific." And thecod-llver-oU nulsanoi
was added to othor sorrow.; of a fli toted
mankind. Kohl, Father dc Smoth nud
otlier explorers of tho North American
inland regions, In tho meanwhile noticed that tlie hunting tribes of our
frozen Northwostorn prairies share the
privilego uf weather-proof lungs at a
distance of '2,1)00 miles from tho next
train-oil kettle; while tbo reports of the
Naples hospitals proved Unit the development of factory towns had mado
consumption extremely prevalent In the
more than half-tropical coast district of
Southern 1 Lilly.
At the same tlmo experience hud loft
no doubt that a change from in-door to
out-door occupations could, in four out
of flvo casos, bo relied upon to avert tho
doom of hereditary consumption, The
sickly wives of Siloslan weavers recovered from malignant lung il iaorders
after tlio removal of their household to
tho backwoods of tbo Tennessee valloy;
hollow-chocked mechanics, worn out
with lioetio coughs, became athletes by
adopting an out-door modo of life; of
llvo sou;; descended from nn ancestry of
consumptives, four died in city workshops beforo tho completion of their
fiftieth year, whilo tho fifth on his
mountain farm outlived his nephews
and grand-iKSphows. Consumption was
gradually recognized to ho a houso disease.
11 Is true that tho theory of tho old-
school purty is apparently supported by
the circu in stances that, lung disorders
beebnie moro frequent after the end or
October, and uuhsido about Lho middle
of May; but. should that phenomenon be,
wholly unconnected with the faet, that
winter Ib, .by oxci'llonco, tho Roaqpn of
in-door life'i* Suvagen, who spoud their
winters onL-doors, uud trappers in tliolr
draughty winter cuuip« in i-bo gully ol
n Western sierra, know < icurrlia only
from hoursay, and we havo soon that
the natives of tho aretiuregiinui share
Unit Imi'itunity in Rplto of iheir ill*
ventilated hovels, whieh mny keep out
sriow-flakos, butcan not cotuitomot the
ponotrutivo force of a polar winter
storm.
Tbeso lulls suggest considerable modifications iu the conventional method of
treatingpittnrrhaand other disorderso'f
the respiratory organs. They huvo already h'ri to tlto pr-t'Hin^
tlie truth that cold pure air, rather than
warm foul air, tsnaUiro'a specific forthe
elimination of lung microbes, and scorer
of consumptivei aro actually cured b.
their removal from tho sultry lowlands
of tho Mississippi valley lo the frosty
highland regions or iho Adirondacks.
For the same reason Dr. how Is advised
his lung-sick patients to t.koan extra
dose of out-door air In mi.lv. intor, and
it would not be a bad plan to utilize tbe
coldest and driest breezes of every winter for disinfectant purposes. Just as
tho owners of a now family rosidenoe
celebrate a "house-warming," old tenements should be treated to an occasional
bouse-freoutng.—Dr. T. h. Oswald, in
Harper's Bazar.
FACTS ABOUT  RINGS.
A History of the Use or This Well-Known
Onmimmt.
The practice of wearing flngor-rlngs
has boen almost universal from an early
period In tho world's history. There is
a tradition wbloh ascribes their invention to Tubal Cain; and tho old Latin
author who gives currency to tho story,
Bpeaktng of tho wedding circlet, Bays:
"Tho form of tho ring boing circular—
that la to say, round and without end—
tmparleth this much, tlmt mutual love
and hearty affection should roundly flow
from ono to tho othor, as ln the circle,
and that continually and forever," Tho
flrst authentic referonco to finger-rings
occurs ln tho Old Testament, whoro
(Genesis xxxvllt.) mention ls mado of
Judab's signet-ring, That thoy wero
also in use among tho Egyptians at that
time ls evident from tho forty-first
ohapter of GonesU, whoro we road of
I'haraoh taking off his own ring and
putting lt upon Josoph's hand, whon ho
mado him "ruler ovor all tho land of
Egypt."
Tho hands of femalo muramloB. found
in tho tombs of Egypt, are profusely
covered with rings; the wealthy ladles
of that oountry wearing costly ones
upon noarly ovory flngor, while their
poorer sisters had to content themselves
with circles of bronze, glass or pottery.
The ancient Chaldeans, tho Persians,
and, according to Herodotus, the Babylonians wore rings] and it Is probable
that from Asia they wore introduced
Into Greece. In the later Greek legends
the anclont horoes aro spoken of as
wearing them, and at a more recent date
overy freoman throughout Uroeco seems
to havo had one.
Tho earlier rings appear to have been
used not so much tor ornament as for
tbo practical purpose of affixing seals;
but lutor on they becamo merely ornamental, and wore sot wtth precious
stones. Tho Romans, who aro believed
to have derived the custom from the
Sablnos, wore stgnut-rlngs of iron—as
was the oase with the 1-acodnamonlans
—and overy freoman bad the right to
wear one.
Ambassadors In the early years of the
ropublic usod to wear gold rings as part
of thotr official dress; this jus annul!
auret being afterwards oxtended to
Chief Magistrates, Senators and, later on.
to equltes, Emperors wero wont to confer this right on those whom they wished
to fnvor, and tbo privilego became gradually moro and more extensive, until ln
the time of Justinian all Roman citizons could avail themselves of It.
Tho later Romans usod to wear many
rings upon their fingers, some even having different ones for summer nnd win-
tor, whilo tbo height of "dandyism"
was reached by those who never woro
tho same ring twice, but threw It away
when once It bad done service.—Notes

MOHAMMEDAN POWER.
The JSetebUahntent and Extension of Arab
Dominion tu Africa.
But tho problem of Arab dominion is
not on the coast at all, but in the interior of Africa. On the coast the European States can make their influence
felt, but it extends no further than a
narrow strip of land, beyond which barbarism reigns supreme. And here we
arrive at one of the most remarkable
phenomena of the age in which wo live
and tho planet we inhabit. The aboriginal inhabitants of Central Africa are
savages, sunk in heathenism, afflicted
by the evils and the weaknesses of
savage lifo, and perhaps Inferior ln
mental and physical vigor tothe stronger races of mankind. Ovor them has
passed, like a tempest from tho east, a
horde of men of another and a stronger
race, which marks them out for slavory
and destruction. The Arab invasion of
Africa is characterized in every part
to which Europeans have penetrated by
desperate valor tn arms, by an utter indifference to human lifo, and, abovo all,
by an enthusiastic and fanatical belief
in the faith ot Islam. They remind
us of tboBo ardent followers uf the
prophet who, tn the first ages
of Mohammedanism, boro bis bloodstained standard and liis intolerant
crood from Spain to tho confines
of China, and * well-nigh overthrow tho
faith and civilization ot the anclont
world. Indeed, tt wo are not
mistaken, they are tho samo mon
—the living Inheritors of the passions, tho valor and the faith of
the soldiers of Mohainmod. Beforo the
strength of tho Christian States thoy aro
now compelled reluctantly to bow; but
ovor tho unarmed and untutored native
races of Africa they are supreme. Accordingly, what we are now witnessing
In Africa, since tt has boon partially
oponed to our view, is an amazing recrudescence and fermentation of Mohammedan powor. On tho Congo It Is
not tho nativo population, butthc bloodthirsty Arab slave dealers, who oppose
the progress of civilization; the natives
ask for protection from these formidable
tyrants. On the Nile the flerco chiefs
of this new warfare havo made Khartoum a seat of power and authority ovor
the neighboring tribes, for sinco the
overthrow of the Egyptian government
in the south thoy aro. musters 'it tho
Soudan. The capturo of that Important
position, and tho dofoat and death of tho
heroic champion of civilization who perished there, were much grealor ovents
than thoy evon soemed to bo at tbo timo
thoy occurred, for tbey established a power, whether it was that of tho Mahdi or
any othor namo, which commands the Interior and tho river.—Edinburgh Rovlew
ABOUT  MOONSTONES
Ther Dome from India and Are Never
Suld hy Weight.
"The word 'precious' can not ho applied to moonstones," bald a well-known
dealer tn je wolry, "becauso tholr
marketable valuo ts relatively small at
all times, and Is still furthor influenced
by the decrees of fashion. Kor some
yoars past we havo had but fow calls for
moonstones, but about twolvo months
ago thoy were restored to popuiaj favor,
and will probably continuo to lie much
used for some time to come. Tho stones
come from India, are easily procured,
and there Is hut little wasto In cutting
Thoy are almost Invariably of a bluish*
white tint, the rays of tho most perfect
stones muoh resembling moonlight
(honco tho name), those ot a less clear
or yellowish hue being of but little
valuo. When carved, tho clear transparency ot the stone is of course marred,
but many of thom aro bo emboli.shed,
tho man in the moon beluga favorite
device, and a baby's faco-surrounded
with a oap of pearls or diamonds
another."
Tho moons tono Is seldom worn alono
by fushionnble people, having usually
an accompanying sotting of diamonds or
other precious stones. In rt -tpouse to a
question the dealer added: "Tbo
largest moonstono i havo ever soen was
oue of oblong Bhape about oue und three-
quarters inches in length and three-
quarters of an inoh In width. Thin was
set to represent a butterfly with partially closed wings of brilliantly-colored
stones, and was Intended to be worn as
a pendant Theso atones aro not val ued
by weight as othors aro, but simply by
appearance and size, a perfectly round
stone being moro desirable than a flatter one and moro rare."
As tho moonstone is traditionally
lucky It ts most suitable for souvenirs,
parting and anniversary gifts, and from
present Indications will be much used
for favors and wedding presents during
the coming gay season.--N. Y Sun.
SHAVING THE BEARD.
The Practice Is Alluded to In Many Parts
of the Old Testament.
Tho earliest reference to shaving ts
found In Genesis xll., 14, where we road
that Joseph, on being summoned before
tho King, shaved himsolf. Tbero aro
Boveral directions ns to shaving tn Leviticus, and tho practice ts alluded to in
many othor parts of the Holy Scriptures.
Egypt is the only, country mentioned in
tho Bible where shaving waB mado a
practico. In all othor countries such an
act would havo boen debasing In the
extreme. Herodotus mentions that tho
Egyptians allowod tho hoard to grow
when In mourning. So particular wore
thoy aB to shaving at all other times,
that to neglect it was to set one's self
up as a target for reproach and ridicule.
When the Egyptian artists intended to
convoy tho idea of a moan, low, slovon-
ly fellow they always represented him
in full beard.
Unlike the Romans of a later ago tho
Egyptians did not confine the shaving
privilego to freo citizens, but obliged
tholr slavoB to shave buth beard and
hoad.
The priests were about the only class
of citizons who habitually shaved the
head exoept tho slaves.
About 800 years B. O. It became the
custom of tho Romans to shave regularly. According to Pliny, Sclpto Afri*
canuB was tho flrat Roman to shave
dally. In France tho shaving custom
was brought about by Louis XIII.
coming to the throne young and beardless. The Anglo-Saxons woro tholr
beards until at the Conquest thoy woro
compelled to follow the example of the
Normans, who shaved. From tho timo
ot Edward III. to that of Charles I.
beards were universally worn. In tho
time ot Charles II, mustache and whisk*
ers only wero worn, and soon after tho
reign of that monarch the shaving praotice becamo goneral.—St Louis Republic    ^

Sneak Thieves
Victoria is overrun with burglars at
present. According to the Times two
popular hotels were visited on Friday
morning by sneak thieves. The Oriental hotel, on Yates Btreet, and tho Occidental, corner Wharf and Johnston
Btreets, being the scenes bf the robbers,
exploits. The method of the robberies
was the snme old stereotyped style of
hotel thieving, rooms of occupants being
entered by turning the keys left inside
by long-jawed nippers. The contents of
the rooms wero then nt the mercy of the
sneaks, who did tlieir work so silently
thut the occupants were not awakened.
In the Oriental several rooms were entered, and different sums of cash extracted from the pockets of thu guests.
From one fio was taken, *)o from another, (0 from another, but in no case was
jewelry or other valuables molested,
gold watches seeming tu have no attraction to the robbers, At the Occidental
soveral small amounts were also stolen
in the same way, and the same peculiarity was observed in regard to watches,
etc. The police have no cine to the
thieves, aud it will be hard to detect
them, as no property other than' cash
was taken, aud until one of these sneaks
are captured in the act there is not
much hope that they will receive thtir
deserts.

reading of petitions and the presenting
of their report by the standing committee, the House went into committee on
private bills, after which Hon. Mr.
Laurier rose to continue the debate
on the question of the abolition
of the dual language in tho Northwest
Territories. He declared the resolution
was against the French race, and a danger to Canada. He attacked Sir Hector
Langevin for having tried in his recent
speech to make a party issue of the
question. He did not believe ho (Langevin) had the slightest particle of liberality in his composition. Ho is making
an able speech.
IMPORTANT BILLS.
Voters' Attention.
The vote collectors are still canvassing
thu city for additional names to the
voters' list, but it is next to impossible
thut they can call on every non-registered person, for the simple reason that
the whereabouts of many poople is hard
to ascertain. Therefore, as it is important that overy name should bo on tho
voters' list, all persons who have not
registered aro earnestly requested to
call at tho oflice of Mr. II. G. Ross, Columbia streot, whore a supply of tho
necessary blank forms will be found
Every man eligible to vote should lose
no time in completing his qualification,
us the interests of the city demand thut
every vote should be registered, and,
therefore, the list should be made complete with the least possible delay.

SOMETHING   LIKE   ENTERPRISE.
Port Moody Offers a Gigantic Hoiiiih to
a targe English Company.
A couple of months ago the representative of n wealthy English manufacturing company visited this province for
the purpose of securing a suitable site
on which to establish large woolen and
cotton millB to manufacture goods for
the China and Japan trade. Port Moody
was finally selected as the proper place,
and the representative of the company
asked the peoplo of that town what inducements thoy would offer the company
to establish there. Tho plans of the
company were laid before the people,
and ull that is necessary to say ot them
is. that if the mills tire established it
will not be long before Port Moody holdH
up her head again as ono of the leading
towns of tho province. Seeing that the
chance was too good to bl lost, the property owners of Port Moody clubbed together and subscribed 211 acres of land
—which wus at one time worth fully
$1,000 per aero nnd more. Since then
the Messrs. Oppenheimer, of Vancouver,
hnve udded 00 acres, making in alt a
bonus of 271 acres. The agent of tlie
company has submitted tiic oiler to
headquarters, and u definite reply is to
be iu the hands of the Port Moody people on March 25th. Thu statutory terminus iu in a fair way to got tlm great
enterpiso, und no one will begrudge it
tho benefits expected to bo derived
therefrom.

THE TRAMP ABROAD.
The   Prodigal   Son    Returning    Home
Chooses the Great Canadian Pacific   Routo.
Last night a tall, lanky Missourian
crossed the river from Brownsville. He
was dressed in a well worn summer suit,
with a light felt hat and rather delapi*
dated shoes, and on the wholo presented
a great contrast to the season. However, his heart was as light as his pocket
book, which, he told Mr. M. Hayes, tho
Front street merchant, only contained
five cents. Ab he hod not sufficient
money to pay for a night's lodging, he
wanted to purchase tobacco with the
coin, thinking, quite correctly, that a
comfortable smoke would keep buck tho
pangs of hunger better than anything
except food itself. Mr. Hayes gavo him
the tobacco but declined tho coin for
two reasons; first that he is too liberal a
man to take the last cent from any human being, aud secondly, the dnv wus
Sunday, and he does not believe in doing business on the Sabbath. Tho Mis-
siourian warmed towards his benefactor,
and laid bare his story as follows: He
had left his father'B homo in old Missouri some three yeara ago, und had led
a wild and stormy lifo ever since. He
drifted to San Francisco some monthB
ago, but being unable to get tlio class of
employment lie sought, owing to his impoverished com'.i lion .determined to move
homewards, aud like the Prodigal Sou
ask to be taken back to the fold again.
He started north from San Francisco on
foot, and reached Portland at the time of
the Northern Pacific Railway blockade
und the Columbia River floods. Not
wishing to bo detained by these obstacles, the tramp pushed north and
reached Westminster last night by wny
of Seattle, Whatcom and Blaine. He
had made the entire journey in just 55
days, three of which he spent on a ranch
where he stopped to recuperate liis
strength.
The Jprodigal was given a night's lodging, breakfast ut one of the hotels, and at
0 o'clock he passed down the railway
track on his way home. He expects to
walk the wholo distance to Winnipeg
and then turn southwards over the
Northern Pacific tracks to Iowa, theu to
Missouri. When he passed down Front
Btreet this morning it was at a heel-and-
toe pace that would leave many professionals far lu the roar.

Dr. Guthrie Again In Trouble,
Dr. Guthrie, who hus been made notorious on this coast by his heavy pool
jilayliiguud frequent allegations concern
ing bin free and easy manner of obtaining
money from frionds on various pretences,
is iu tbe city, aud Intended going oust
lo-day to receive paternal congrntillations on bis successful western career,
but ho bus beeu detained on business of
importance. On his first arrival iu this
city, and previous to tho publicity of the
charges against him, ho visited'Mr. C,
N. Davidson, of the firm of Davidson
Brothers, jewellers, whom he knew in
the east, and on certain representations
induced tho latter to sign a draft on bis
(Dr. Guthrie's) fathor in Guelph. Yesterday tho draft returned dishonored, and
nn information wus laid against him for
obtaining money under false pretences,
and he was arrested and Is now in tho
lock up. Dr. Guthrie will appear on
Monday in the Police Court to answer
to the charge.—News-Advertiser.
smile, Bhook hands with all the delegates ou his way, mounted the rostrum,
shook hands with Mayor Brown, by
whom he was jocularly introduced to
the meeting, and spoke briefly aB follows :
After expressing pleasure at seeing
such a number of gentlemen present,
representing the district in general, Mr.
Ladner said that he was also pleased to
aee that they were beginning to take an
intereat in matters that should have
been manifested long ago. He considered Wostminstcr district tbo most
important district in the province. (Ap-
filnuse). Ho regretted that ho did not
iuvo the public accounts with bim to
show the relative importance of this
district with other sections of the Province. It had pleased him to read the
public accounts when they were laid before the House. They showed, among
other things, tbat this district had paid
over ono-qunrter of the revenue for the
current year, ending 30th June, with
the exception, of course, of the Dominion subsidy. The district was well entitled to ask for moro representation, to
ask for n fair field und no favors, whioh
he believed was all that the Mainland
Association asked. (Hear, hear).
Westminster district pays $33,000
more to the provincial revenue
than the wholo of Vancuuver Island
put together, and the latter had thirteen
members in the House to this district's
threo. He would be very sorry to hear
any sectional expression. Whut every
port of the Province wanted was simply
its rights. Everyone was yot in tho
dark as to the provisions of tlie Government redistribution bill, As soon as tho
bill was brought down ho would send
copies to dillerent persons throughout
the district, and he would endeavor to
have ihe matter postponed a fow dayB
so that the measure might be considered
outside of the House. As to dividing
the district into ridings, he believed that
was u popular measure. This district
was about 70 miles long, and it required
nearly a month to properly canvas it.
Mr. Ladner said ho was sorry to say that
he did not think wo had had a fair share
of uppropriationfl according to the
amount we paid into the revenue, but
he was willing to let bygones be bygones,
if better wore done in the future. When
the redistribution bill was brought dowu
ho would do his best to advise nis constituents and to curry out their wishes
(Applause.)
Mr. Ladner stated on behalf of Mr.
Orr that ho was unable to be present,
but that he had requeated him to say
that he (Mr. Orr) would do his beBt to
carry out the wishes of his constilucuta,
aud if the bill was a good one he would
give it his hearty support.
On being requested, Mr. Ladner promised to forward copies of the bill to tbe
secretary of the Central Executive.
Hearty votes of thanks were then, in
separate motions, convoyed to Mayor
Brown, Mr. M. H. Hirschberg, Mt. W.
H. Ladner, M. P. P., to the Vancouver
and WestiniiiBterpromoters of the Mainland Association, and to Mr. It, II
Alexander, all of which were appropriately responded to, and the mooting adjourned to the call of tho president.
