London, Jim. 31.—Sir Charles Mike's
iiaw Iiuok "The Problems of Great I'ri-
tajn**"4u tWtf^Ohnnes is out to-day. Jn
thikwork the author expresses the he-
liettthat the world in the future will be
divided among the Anglo-Saxon, the
Russian and the Chinese races, France,
lie says, may grow to be a great military
and naval power, and 'Germany may
also acquire a great navy us well as a
great army besides amassing tremendous wealth, but so rapid is tiie increaso
of Great .Britain and America in strength
and richcH tliat before the iiext century
is ended the French and German nations
nro likely to appear Utile more thnu pigmies beside the British or Americans or
Russians. Hir Charles thinks that the
Chinese, in expanding tho limits of their
population across the sea, will tend to
mil under the influeuce of India and the
British colonies, and so become a powerful factor in a great civilization of the
world and one of the greatest dominant
powers. _., _

TtVADDLU.
Editoii' Columiiian—■S^:—A Special
roporter from Truth oflice visited St.
Mary's Hospital lust Wednesday, nnd
his report wus published ou Thursdny.
It is a very extraordinary sample of paltry insignificance. If uny of your readers will put his pen through the. mm-
dense contained in the first fifty lines
aud look at what is left he will see the
following announcement: ''Christianity is spreading," and "there are hospitals in England." The scribbler's attempt to describe "a sister of charity"
is puerile nud impertinent. The raving
of a patient who wished to sleep in
snow drift is uut of place in print; uml
tho objection another patient had to the
"old cow's milk" is very like tlfc witless
joke which is popular iu this age of
rant. "The special" bus written in his
roport of "frigid zone," "eternal ice,"
aud "the palm groves of eternal, sum
mer" to decorate his two hundred lines
of giblwrish. Any old hand, skilled iu
the art of condensing, cau givo, iu ten
lines, all thut is useful in the whole re
port. But this Is not the ugo of reason.
Any fool who can spell mny Imi employed
as "our special" and shine on tho stall*
of a tenth rate newspaper.
As a scribbler tho writer of that roport
takes first place, but bear hlm as a witness. Ho says: "Tho little wooden
liedsteads with their whito curtains and
counterpanes, and tlio poor, thin faces
resting on some of them told the story
of what the sisters are doing for su tiering humanity," "Oli I yes, the curtains
and counterpanes are white, and the
faces are pale and thin, but—-then tell vo
Btory.
From one end of the world to the othor
tho sisters arc known as devoted nurses,
the true frionds of the unfortunate, and
thoreforo I hope thoy will esrune the
silly slang of uneducated scribblers.
Yours truly, Rkadkk.
Tlm Annual Ilrlll.
Tho pariuh' of tho garrison artillery Is
called for Monday night at 8 o'clock, at
the drill shed, to arrange nightly drills
during tho annual drill season, An in
strnetor from 0 battory will arrive by
the steamer on Monday, and will put
both the Riflo and Artillery corps through
a systematic courso of instruction tu tho
now drill. ThiB Is an opportunity for
our soldier citizens to porfect themselves
in tho nrt of war whicli should be taken
prompt advantage of and it Is to be hoped the members of both corns will turn
out regularly at overy parade during the
progress of the drills. Especially to
young mon, who cunnot tell the
day thoy may bo called on to
protect tneir homos against tho invader, is a knowlodgo of military mutters indispensable, nnd tho present opportunity to obtain the necessary Instruction Is one that should be eagerly
sought.
Tlnirmlay'fl ProcoeiliiigH.
The speaker took the chair at 2:15 p.
m.   Prayers by Rev. A. Beanlands.
Mr. Duck rose to a question of privilege and stated that he hud been mis-
reported iu tlio Vohmist in his remarks
as to the adjournment of the debate ou
Tuesday,   He corrected the error.
Mr, Thomson presented a 'petition
from the settlers ou Gabriola Island.
Mr. Orr presented a petition from the
Vancouver Street Ruilway Company and
the Electric Light & Illuminating Company.
The petition from the citizens of Vancouver praying for increased representation wus presented and read. Tt stated
that before July next the number of
names enrolled on the list would lie
8,000 us ugainst 1,800 now. The city of
Vancouver is totally unrepresented although nearly equal in size lo Victoria,
wliich has four representatives and 4,-
000 voters including KsquiinalU
A loiifjftliy diBCUBslou' look placo" regarding tho printing of the names nu the
petition. Hon. John Rohson contended
that it was uot necessary Lo nriut them
all. If thoy were printed otbers would
hayo to be treated likewise and would
iitniiiiui to tens of thousands.
Hon. Mr. Beaven—Tens of thousands?
Hon. Mr. Robson—Yes sir, tens of
thousands.
Hon. Mr. Beavon—I'm glad to hour
there are so many people in the couu
'ry.
Hon. Mr. Beuvoii argued that they
should be printed and wus supported''by
several members of the opposition. The
queen's printer settled the matter by
imforming the Provincial Secretary that the extra printing necessary
to print the names could not lie hud in
the province It was decided to print
tlie first ten names. ■-.-_,
Mr. Orr moved-tho following resolution : That a respectful address be presented to his honor the.'HcuUsiiant-gov-*
ernor, praying that a copy of the plans,
specifications, and all orders in council
and otlier papers iu any way relating to
tho construction of the bridge from tho
mainland to Sea Island, and from Sea
Island to Lulu Island, across tho Nortii
Arm of the Fraser river, in New Westminster District, together with a statement uf all moneys paid ou account of
the same, and all moneys due on nccount
of the said bridges. Also tho namo of
tho person acting for the government as
inspector- of the said works, together
wltli his report thereon, and the number
of times the snid inspector' visited the
said works during construction, and the
amount paid for said inspection.
Mr. Orr described how the bridges had
been damaged by the ice, and produced
soveral spikes used in the construction
to show the faulty manner in whieh the
structure had beon put together. He also
gave some theoretical details to prove
that the S]H!cilicatioiis and plans were
either at fault or hnd been carelessly fulfilled. This was liis object in calling for
these papers and he hoped the government would attend to the mutter at nu
early date. Ho expressed fears that the
remaining spans of the bridge would be
curried nwny before spring.
Hon. Mr. Vernon snid the honorable
mover of the resolution might have n
knowledge of some things but evidently
bridge construction wns no) one of thein.
Everybody of course regretted thu damage that had been douo lo the bridges,
■but It would Tie proved the construction"
had nothing to do with that, calamity.
The honorable mover would have better
taste and more g<nid sense if ho had
framed bis remarks on the basis of practical knowledge. Ho felt quite sure the
honorable member know nothing about
bridge building. Th-* production of the
spikes hud no doubt some effect on the
opinions of some of the members but the
spikes proved nothing. Ou a bridge of
libit kind there were temporary erec-
tiAns und from those probably the spikes
had been procured. The bridge had
been constructed uccordiug to the plans
and specifications and indeed was a
credit to the department, Tho contingency which bud unfortunately swept
away part might never occur again.
No bridge in the world could have stood
tho strain put upon the Sea Island
bridge, l'l wus u mutter for congratulation that no lives were, lost. There had
been a good deal of newspaper corres
pondence by people who likely did not
understand unything.about bridges and
they had thrown tho blame indiscriminately upon the shoulders of the govern
ment the bridge company and the ure]ii
tects. He hoped steps would be taken
to enquire iuto the matter and if there
was anv blame to be attached place jt
whoro it belonged. If the government,
Iheu ou their shoulders let it.fall.
Mr. Ladner seconded tho resolution.
Mr. Cunningham said tlie honorable
mover of the resolution had made ii serious chnrgo auainst the government. It
wns ]wor evidonco to bring forward a few
spikes to prove lhat a whole giguntie
work like the North Arm bridges wns
badly built. He would be the last imm,
however, te thwart inquiry; he trusts
full enquiry will be made. Vory fow in
the houso fully understood the specifications and besides nobody had the
time to wade through thom. The seconder of the resolution (Mr. Ladner) evidently did not clearly understand the
mutter, He thought the proper way to
do in this cuso wus to appoint u committee to enquire into tho matter us the
members had neither the time nur inclination to go into lho details of the
specifications. He thoreforo hud pleu-
sure in moving that ull the words after
resolution lie struck out and lhat a committee lie appointed with power, to call
for books, papers and witnesses and to
report to tills house. This he thought
the only fair, prompt and efficient way
of settling the quest ion.
Seconded by Mr. Croft.
Mr. Duck said the amendment opened
up un entirely new question aud would
uot provido lite house the information.
which it asked. The amendment ought
lo bo put iu addition so as not to wipe
out the main resolution.
Mr. Grant was uf tho same opinion as
tho member for Victoria city and said
the houso certainly desired this information. It was in very bad taste to placo
the moving of the resolution in the
hands of the member from Now Westminstor who bud not beou so long in tho
house as many others. If n committeo
wore appointed tho result would lie easy
enough to. fort ell; threo government
members in a committee of tiva would
be protty certain to clear Ihu skirts of
tho government in spite of tho two opposition members. IaiI the information
be brought down to the bouse and every
member and voter have a chnnco to sec
who is to Illume.
Hon. Mr. Davio said ho hud no objec
tlon to tho ninendment being altered tu
suit the house.
Mr. I .minor suid there hnd been no intention to censure the government, all
Hint was wanted wus nm; plain statement
of facts. And he just wanted to let tho
honornbto member for Westminster
kuow that he (lhesi>oukor) known littlo
about that bridge anyway. (l>niighter).
Mr. Ladner produced tho engineers' report, ou the stnto of the bridges. Ho
would say that the lion, mover of tho
amemlmeiH hud uo idea of what he was
talking about and those facts he had
just rond showed it.
Mr. Orr on rising again looked hard al
tho chief commissioner und said that he
(Mr. Orr) hnd been a bridgo builder before he cumo to British Columbia nud so
might naturally enough claim to know us
much of that subject us the chief commissioner knew about raising calves
(laughter). Mr. Orr explained the
technical reasons why tho bridge could
uot stand the strain of lho currout and
the ice. He wns willing to accept the
amendment of the bou. member for
Westminster city if it were amplified to
include all orders-in-council. He would
take the opportunity to state thut tho
foreman of the work had condemned tho
whole bridge structure. Tho loss in con:
sequence of the destruction uf the bridgo
fell moro heavily upon the municipality
of Richmond than on lho government.
Hon. John Robson said he was extremely sorry tho disaster should have
happened to ihe bridge and ho was also!
sorry that Mr, Orr bad put the matter
in such ail unfair light for the govornment Tho specifications hud been approved of, by the Sun Francisco Bridge
Co. and the. municipality nlso adopted
them, and if they had discovered anything wrong about tho plans the department would havo gladly put it right.
Tho very best inspector thut could be
procured in the province, Mr. George
Turner, had expressed himself satisfied
with tho construction. Mr. Tumor was
not only one of the cleverest aud most
competent-engineers aud inspector* in
the couiif ry.iiiil he was an incorruptible
ihari'-mrap'Snle (if''dishonesty or unfairness. ■ Tho only reasonable wny oilt of
the mutter *>w wus the ninendment and
the government is anxious to deal justly
aud evenly In this question.
Messrs. Semlin and Beaven spoke
briefly on this subject and the resolution us amended passed. The committee
consists of Messrs. Orr, Ladnor, Haslam,
Croft uud the mover oi the ninendment.
j Mr. Grunt moved tho following resolution : Thnt an order of tho house be
granted for a return lo this house showing the amount of the assessment rolls
for 1800, covering the amount of income
and personal properly tax in each of tlie
cities, vi/., Victoria, Nanaimo, New
Westminster and Vancouvor. Resolution pusscd.
Mr. Orr moved the following resolution : That a respectful uddrAw lie presented te hi i honor the lieutenant-governor, requesting him to cause to be
placed before this house al once the
measure proposed ns un amendment to
the "Constitution Act," so that tho
policy of tho government may be made
known.
Hon. John Robson said that if Mr.
Orr was'a now nietl|wt:)bf the Iioubo he
might attribute the ^"present resolution
to his inexperience nnd verdancy, but
ho was one of the oldest parliamentarians in the province,which made his extraordinary demand the more inexplicable. He would not liko to charge upon
Mr. Orr a desiro to parado and show ofT
before his constituents, as they aro far
too intelligent not to seo through snch a
flimsy -subterfuge Tho leador of tho
opposition is very fond of lecturing on
the heinousuess of "giving away" state
secrets, but here we havo ono of his supporters asking for them iu the boldest,
manner. Brit Mr. Orr is on the wronjr
side of tho house to expect to be treated
to those favors ho desires. Mr. Orr is a
disappointed man. When he found ho
could not get tho provincial secretaryship or the speakership, ho went ovor
to the opposition benches. Tho information sought for by Mr. Orr cannot bo
divulged unlil the document comes
down to the house. Only those worthy
of the confidence uf the government
could bo consulted. Mr. Orr must thank
himself for the ridiculous position iu
which ho would lie plnced bofore tho
country through his absurd action. The
government wants to deal leniently and
fairly, but It was well W^undorstnnd
thut the government was not a thing to
igrvliiyetl with.   (A](riliiuflu.-)-
Hon. Mr. Heaven said thoMivernmeul
had nol the backbone or tlio stamina to
mako and stand by a policy. He had
been many yearo connected with tho
house, and ho nover heard more scandalous statements made than those just
uttered by the hon. premier. It was no
way to manage the government of u
country to got members up into a private room nnd discuss in secret mutters
that tho wholo house had u right to
hear. It was a barefaced admission to
make that this was done in this province The country has a right to know
what .is going on.
Hon. Mr. Davie characterized the
speech of Hon. Mr. Beaven as nn exhibition of hypocrisy, iiiuLurgncd tliat the
caucus is an imperative necessity. Ho
suid the (icople of this country admired
consistency more than inconsistency
nnd hypocrisy.   .
Mr, Grant wus astonished at the ex
hihitmii'of uudiicily ou„ Uii'-'purl of the
lender of the government, and said lie

its policy within one liolir.
Hon. Mr. Pooley mnde a line speechv

government and deprecating the manner
in which the members attacked ono another. This wns Mr. Pooloy's first ad-
ilress since vacating the s|ieuWi's chair,
aud his remarks were greeted with applause. J
Mr. Semlin suid the electors wonld lie
glad to know whether there was nny
chance of this question receiving attention and discussion. The country wants
to know whut the government intends
to do, and the sooner the document containing that information was brought
down the better.
Mr. Cunningham thought tho position
assumed by the mover of the resolution,
the mombor for Cassiar and the leader
of the opposition quite illogical, They
seemed to expect thut the govornment
wns going to bring down an iron-clad
measure and force it down tho throats
of the |n'ople noteils volenti. A responsible govornment is one which represents
tho wishes of the people in this houso.
He wus glad to sny that the city of New
Westminster, whtch he wus proud and
hnppy to represent, was never Iwtter
treated than it has been by the present
government. The city never enmo with
ti reasonable request Hint was nut carefully considered by the govornmont.
Mueh of Now Westminster s prosperity
was due to tho tuition of thegovornment,
and that prosperity was never so solid
ns it is at the present hour.
Mr. Orr stigmatiswd vtjio utterances of
the hon, member for New Westminster
as tho most fulsome llttnory that over
fojl from the lips of many -and said that
liefore his election lie .'couldn't say

Orr expressed the hopo Hint the bill

Tho question was put aud -I ho resolution was lost by the overwhelming majority of 1(1 to 5. Mr. Orr asked for

Mr. Grant askod the hon. tho minister of finance tho following questions;
Whut was tho total revenue and expenditure from 1st July to 81 Ht December,

FrltUr'j Proceedings.
On the opening of tho house to-day
tho leader of the government asked the
indulgence of the house briefly to address   them.    Since last session  the
house had tost two of its prominent figures, the leader §f the govern meut aud
the president uf the executive council.
The death of thfr tatter was generally regarded aB ft public calamity.   The'lute
Hon. Robert Dunsmuir during his long
residence in the  province   had been f
identified with all the large enterprises   '
having for their object tlie advancement
of the province and the development of
its great resources.   Hit keen headed-
ness und practical good sense made hia
counsel invaluable in the government. '
Of the late premier it could be said that,
his doath was deeply' regretted by his
political foes as well as by his friends.
His public life to tho very last wus
marked by rare ability and u conscientious devotion to duty.   After narrating
the changes made in the cabinet on ac- '■
count of the two blanks caused by these
two deaths, the premier said that the
policy of the present government would
uot materially differ from that of tho'
last administration, except in the mat-,
ter of explorations and surveys throughout the province; the liberalising tlie
practice of the law and encouraging tlie'
active construction of railways..  These,
with the question of tlie redistribution
of the seats, -constituted the  principal'
points in tho government's policy.
Tho petitions of the Vancouver Street
Railway and Lighting Company wore referred to the private bills committee;
and tho potition of the settlers on Gabriola Island wns ruled out of order ns an
appropriation was asked. " -' .
Hon. T. Davies' amendment te the le-
_ il professions bill passed its second
reading and was committed, Mr. Croft
being in tho chair, and roported complete. The roport will bo considered at
the next sitting of the house.        '   ■ -'
Mr. Beaven's resolution, concerning
the cancellation of teachers certificates,
elicited a discussion in which Messrs.
Davie, Beaven, Seiuliu, Grant, and the
premier took part, Mr, Martin's amendment was finally adoptod and the resolution, us amended, wns passed.    *
A return was brought down of the reg-'
istrnr's record of marriages and deaths
for tho, year ending June 80th, 1889.
The house then adjourned until Tuesday.

THE DAILY COLUMBIAN
HATUKPAY EVEN1NC1, FRIl. 1, UN,
THE NEW COLUMBIAN.
On the 27th of December last—a little
over a month ngo—the fact l«jing now a
mutter of local history—-The Columbian
oflice, hii'luiliiigits entire newspaper and
jobbing plant, was totally destroyed by
fire in the burning of the wooden block,
corner of Columbia and Mary streets,
thnt swept several other city businesses
out of existence for the time being. A
partial insurance covered the losses
nil cases, and, in common with their fellow sufferers, tho proprietors of The
Columbian set ubout "re-establishing
their business without delay. The time
of year nnd tho unwonted severity of
the season, hindering navigation, and
obstructing lines of railways, rendered
the accident still more unfortunate, by
adding to the cost and increasing the delay of securing and sotting upa new outfit. Under moro favorable circumstances, The Columbian would have appeared in its rogular form noarly two
weeks ago. After all the delays aud disappointments, however, we aro happy to
lie able to introduce the new Columbian
to our readers and the public generally,
to-night, nnd trust that the unavoidable
delays, and the imperfect service, of the
last month may bc overlooked in the increased satisfaction which the new paper
promises to give.
The most cursory examination, we
flatter ourselves, will demonstrate that
the new paper has a considerable advantage in overy respect over the old
Columbian which the fire destroyed. It
is larger, in the lirst place, by nearly
eight columns of the old measure—a
. statement which the average reader may
perhaps doubt, but which nny member
of the "art preservative" can easily prove
for himself. The increased size has been
gained by widoniiignndlengtheningeach
column, thus giving nn advantage to
both the reader and ndvertiser. The
paper us to size is now slightly the largest in the provinco, nnd certainly not behind any iu the othor important matters
Hint go to make up a first-class daily.
In Home respects, ns it hns in the past,
Tiik Columiiian may fairly bo said to
lend, nnd it is the aim of the proprietors
that it shnll continue to do so, nnd in
every respect, in tho future. We desire
to make Tiik Columbian truly representative of the pluck, enterprise aud progress of its immediate constituency as
well us of the province nt large, and
worthy in every way of what is destined
iu^JMear future to be the premier city
of-*TJte, province. As a good newspaper
is it most important factor in the growth
and prosperity of auy community, we
have no fear but that we shall have the
hearty co-opcratioii of a discerning and
enterprising public to thnt end.
We would not conclude these brief introductory remarks without extending
our heartiest thanks to our renders and
advertisers and tho public generally for
the kind indulgence nnd grateful expressions of sympathy and regard which
wo have roceived from all sources during the month past. Our best thanks
are nlsodite and nre cordlnlly given forthe
invaluable assistance, under the circumstances, kindly offered and rendered by
our cotemporaries of the Truth, in this
city, and the Newt-Advertiser and World,
of Vancouvor. It is owing to the neighborly nid thus received that we have
been nblo to issue a small makeshift
sheet overy evening since the fire, and
we hope we may never havo the opportunity to render a liko sorvico to our
obliging confreres.
THE CHARM OF THE FIRST.
It is characteristic of the human biped
lhat "the tirst" presents an attraction
for him somewhat difficult to be understood by any process of reasoning. A
moment's consideration is sufficient,
however, to show that man is -mnch
more attracted by the beginning than
by the middle or end of things, notwithstanding that "the wisest man" has
left it on record thai "lietter is tho end
of a thing than the beginning of a thing,
uud the duy of one's doath than the
day of one's birth," Thus, the flrst of
the year is beyond donbt vested with
mueh more of prestige than midsummer day. It looks bright and is the
premiere of the year's comedy or tragedy, as the cuso may lie. What fond
mother is there that hus not thrilled
with the joy of the "first-born," nud the
first-bom's "first tooth," nnd one's
"first wife" Is more likely to be considered an iingel, ut a certain stage of the
acquaintance, than auy second or third
edition. Even a flrst mother-in-law
might be contemplated with some degree
of equanimity, but a socond or third,
heaven forbid ! "First-class" hns an attraction ull its own, us endless advertisements can testify, whilst, ns a recent
writer bus said, "such words us premier
aud prince represent the primary of
position." This liking of humanity for
"the lirst" has givon the language a
proverb of ils own, nud "flrBt come, tlrst
served" is a saying Hint bus un everyday
boarding house exempli Heat ion. Cicsur
himself declared ho would rather be first
In a village than second In Rome, in
spite of the fact that such a position
might mean possibly less of currency
and move uf ros|K>tisibility.
Willi such thoughts as these* in mind
we very naturally suppose that our
readers will regard our issue of this
evening with a moro critical, nnd we ure
sure with at least ns kindly, un eye as
those which have preceded tt or will
follow from day to day. Liko I'luunix
new risen from its ashes, Tiik Columbian
has again assumed ils proper dress and
renewed its youth, presenting to thu
public "the HrHt" of |ts now lease of life,
nHsured Hint their generosity will detect
in tlwuuw Columbian that, as of old,
"our true interest Is all for your do-
THE   BRITISH    POLITICAL    POT-
BOUILLON.
Tiik Liberal-Unionists have fallen upon
evil days, and no mistake. Tho hand
writing on the wall is so plain that he
who runs may read, and what time is
not spent by the lenders in recrimination
nnd mutual reproaches, is being utilised
by the rank and file for the purpose of
quietly recanting error and returning to
the Liberal fold. The rumor that Lord
Salisbury intends some time this year to
appeal te the constituencies for a renewal of their confidence in the Conservative party has for weeks boen prevalent, and is generally believed to have
a basis of truth. Should such a policy
be adopted, the challenge will be accepted with undisguised satisfaction by the
Liberal and Irish parties; whilst, already,
On the mere strength of the rumor, it is
easy to soe that the party In offlce and
the clique of dissentients led by Lord
Hartington are, if not thoroughly alarmed, at any rate very nervous. They cannot forget that quite recently Mr. Chamberlain spoke of certaiu bye-elections as
being "a general election in miniature,"
and therefore a fair test ot the opinion
of the United Kingdom. Those five contests huvo been fought, and Mr. Gladstone's party has. been victorious beyond
sanguine hope. But disaster has followed ou disaster's heels, and Hartington,
who alone could possibly hold together
tho Whig and Radical olements so
strangely allied with the Tories against
the great liberal leader, Ib sick and is
travelling in search of health, which all,
irrespective of party, sincerely wish he
may be blessed in regaining. No sooner
has the heir to the dukedom of Devonshire left the field than the lesser lights
are quarelling as to who is to wear tho
mantle of Elijah. Sir Henry James, a
Whig among Whigs, thinks that the
leadership should revert to the representative of the aristocratic wing, whilst
the Chamberlain family are not forgetful of the brilliancy of Joseph, of his intrepidity in earlier days when he dared
to board his leader on the floor of the
House, and, amid the frantic cheers of
the Radicals, spoke of Hartington as
"the late leader of the Liberal party."
Since that time haB he not declared, too,
that there are younger, men than Mr.
Gladstone, and, with his usual modesty,
hinted, that the leadership should belong to himself? Are not all these
things written in the memory of thee lectors? It enn be understood, then, that,
in the absence of Lord Hartington, a
very pretty quarrel is likely, and in fact,
appears already to have developed, and
during the coming session the amusing
spectacle will probably be witnessed of
a Unionist party, composed of a Conservative government supported by candid
friends of the Churchill type, aud by
Liberal-Unionists, like Kilkenny cats,
scratching and tearing in their endeavors to prove that Radicalism turned
Tory is in reality more Liberal than
Whiggery led at the tail of the "stupid
party." Tho simple fact is that Liberal-
Unionism is rapidly returning to its
original elements, in the absence of Lord
Chamberlain, aud the more dignified
Hartington, and the noisy patriotism of
bearing of the Whigs, merely mean one
and the same thing—a keen desire for
the loaves and fishes.
When parliament moots almost the
first duty of the House of Commons will
be to consider the report of the Parnell
Commission. Thut document, whatever
else it mny contain, must emphatically
state that the Times' letters wero forgeries. That is a foregone conclusion,
and Inasmuch as the commission would
uover have been necessary but for tho
publication of the letters, Mr. Parnell,
assisted by Sir Charles Russell, and
backed by the united Parnellite and
Liberal forces, will rightly demand i
searching inquiry into this most dis
creditable attempt to malign a political
party through an attack ou the character
of its leader. Lord RandolphChurcluH,
a ministerialist, and the stormy petrel of
British politics, will maintain his reputation for eccentricity by making a like
demand as to the connection of the government with the Times in thiB affair.
Meanwhile, the divorce suit of Capt.
O'Shea hangs like the sword of Damocles
over the head of Mr. Parnell. The Irish
are largely a Catholic people, and regard
matrimony as a sacrament, the most
sacred of all ties, a union which nothing
but death cau sever. The individual,
therefore, who dares invade the sanctity
of the marital tie must be a doomed
man with such a people. If only the
charge against Mr. Parnell can be substantiated, then the Irish party will have
to got another leader, for from that moment "Othello's occupation's gone." We
feel reassured, however, for threo years
ago or more the idle talk of the . Parliament lobbies and of the clubs was
full of what Capt. O'Sher intended doing, After three yenrs of barking, tho
gallant captain discovers only that it is
convenient to bite when Mr. Parnell Is
about to demand satisfaction from the
Time* for Its unremitting but fruitless attempts te ruin his name. We beliove
and hope that the Irisli leader will come
out "wearing the white flower of a blameless life."
As a doubtful set off against his past
defeats and prospective disasters, Lord
Salisbury will be able to boast that ho
has won over to the Conservative party
Lord Portman, a person of large acres
and, therefore, of some influence. It is
characteristic of those individuals for
whom Mr. Gladstone haB been unable to
find place, but whom he has beon compelled to raise to the peerage in order to
prevent them from hindering his government, that sooner or later they have
"ratted," and used the privileges conferred upon them to, at critical times,
embarrass their benefactor, by coming
dowu to "vote against Gladstone," and
to jwr|ietuate some survival of feudalism
which the popular assembly wished to
see abolished. Lord Portmun owes Ills
peerage to the G. 0. M., aud, like Sherbrooke, Westminster, and u host of
others, hus merely turned round and
bitten the hand which fed him. He is
no loss to the Liberal party, for in his
best days he was a territorial Whig, with
little sympathy for the ignotnle vulgut.
Years ago, Joseph Arch, the agricultural
laborer's friend, showed up the condition of his lordship's tonality, who wero
starving around hi* broad acres In Dorsetshire | «nd hid adhesion to the Tory
party, If perhupa, It should have the effect of somewhat delaying the spread of
Liberal Ideas in the soutli of England,
where Portman's wealth and influence iB
great, Is yet not without Ite compensations, as it rids the liberal leader of a
very nominal friend, and purifies the
party of another aristocratic Whig.
The next few months will be stirring
times for politicians in the United Kingdom, and if, at the end of the session,
the government determines to appeal to
the country by means of a general election, sueh a course will be one of the
very few of their acts worthy of commendation.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
According to the San Francisco Examiner, that city's purchases of coal from
British Columbia in 1889 were 80,000
tons in excess of that of the previous
year, and 44,700 tons greater than those
from any other market. They amounted to 844,490 tons, whilo the Australian
delivery waB 290,700 tons.
It is reported that the total amount
paid to Parnellite counsel is £20,000.
Sir Charles Russel received £7000, Mr.
Lockwood and Mr. R. T. Read (both Q.
C's) wero paid $3500 each, Mr, Harrington and Mr. Asquith, £1500 each, and
Sir Charles Russell's son and the two
other juniors were each rewarded for
their labors by the payment of £1000.
The star of Bethlehem is again to be
visible in this year, being its seventh
appearance since the birth of Christ.
It comes once in 315 years, aud is of
wondrous brilliancy for the space of
three weeks, when it wanes and disappears aftor 17 months. It will be a sixth
star added to the five fixed stare In the
constellation Cassiopeia while it remains
in sight. 	
LaBt year the vessels launched in the
United Kingdom of Great Britain approach very closely to 1,272,000 tons.
The Clyde heads the list with a tola.
tonnage of 335,201 tons. Next comes
the Tyne, with 281,710 tons. The Wear
is third on the list, with 227,330 tons!
Then the Tees, with 120,430 tons. The
shipbuilding yurds in Belfast have
launched tonnage to the amount of 80,-
000. In the previous year there were at
the same time vessels on hand having a
total of 283,301 tons.
England is probably the only great
power which can point to a decrease in
the total strength of its military establishment during the past twelvo months.
The British army is less numerous by
about a thousand men than it was a
year ago. The strength of the infantry
has decreased by half as much agaiu;
but there has been a slight increase iu
the artillery, engineers, and army service corps, whilo the cavalry has remained stationary. The total diminution,
however, is not serious; ond it is something to know that the British army is
stronger than it was four years ago by
10,000 men. The number of troops
quartered in the British Isles shows an
increase of 4000 over strength recorded
in December 1888.—Ex.
Soon it scorns ns if nothing but the
bare name and the Pope as bishop will
remain to prove that such a city ns
Rome ever existed, remarks an exchange. Every landmark is disapearing,
owing to tho united oxertioiiB of the
roynl govornment and the municipal
council, who agreeing iu no other matter, alternately vio with each other aa
to who can alter most existing Rome.
The Minister of Public Works uow pro-
ixiscs to cut away the front of Sungallo's
bastion facing the Tiber, in the Castle of
St. Angelo, lu order to widen the Btreet.
To do this, the medheval character of
one of the only 15th century monuments
left in Rome will be completely destroyed, nnd tho result obtained trifling.
Again, if the modem outworks were removed, the Castle of St. Angelo would
appear in something like its primitive
state, and the same end gained as regards the widening of tho street.

Our own city—Now Westminster—
hIiiiuIr to-day tho most favored, tho
most progressive, uiul Uio most solid
businoss centre in the provinco of British Columbia. Thoso flints nro undeniable, as will hercuftor bo proved. Its
situation is tho envy of neighboring
oities, and the subject, of tho wannest
admiration of visitors. Westminster,
known in provincial parlance as tho
Hoyal City, Her Most Gracious Majesty,
Queon Victoria, having deigned to nnmo
it, an honor nover bestowed beforo or
since by her in the Canadian Dominion,
is blessed almost beyond comparison in
its situation, and tlio titlu of "Royal"
under lhe circumstances is |ieculiarly
and properly fitted toil. Hero are a
few of Westminster's advantages: It is
built mi llio banks of the noblo Frasfir,
18 miles from the sea, just suflicieiitly
inland to shelter its harbor on all sides
and at ali times; tho harbor frontage is
flvo miles long, with a sufficient depth
of water to accommodate the largest vessels afloat, thus making it the finest harbor iu the province; itis the centro of
the salmon fishing industry, one of the
most valuable of all the industries on
the Pacific const; tho headquarters of
the largest lumbering companies iu the
province, the output from whose mills
will shortly aggregate three-quarters of
a million feet daily; the starting point
of the largo fleet of steamers navigating
the Fraser river; and the market town
and centre of the finest, largest and most
populous and prosjiurous farming district in tho province, the soil of which
is unequalled iu fertility iu the whole
world. Westminster is also tho fresh
wator terminus of tho Canadian Pacific
ft. ft. and will shortly be the terminus
of the Fairhaven & Southern & Westminster Southern Railways, giving connection with the American systems on
Pugot Sound. With these powerful advantages Westminster may indeed he
proud of its present and sanguine of its
future.
The progress mado by tho Royal City
in the last fow years may woll he taken
as an index of tlio future, and that without expecting too mueh. Never since
its charter was granted has Westminster
heen so prosperous, or the same signs of
advancement visible on every side as today. Never bus llie growth of the city
been so rapid nud substantial, or its industries in a more flourishing condition
than at the present time, and, with an
ever increasing population, bringing
large additions to our wealth annually,
thero can be no possible excuse for retrogression on the partof Westminster,
now wk jiavu ouowN.
The value of buildings erected in
Westminster during 1887 amounted to
$217,000; in 1888, $248,000, ami in I8HI),
to $013,000—or, in round figures, about
$1,000,000 worth of new buildings have
gone up in WestminBter during the last
three years. These are figures which
speak for themselves, and yet tbey nre
under rather tlinn over the murk.' Although Iho first month of 1800 has only
just drawn to a close, the architects have
orders on hand to execute plans for over
$150,000 worth of buildings, work on the
erection of which will commence us sunn
as the woatlicr will permit. Taking Ibis
as an indication of what may be expected to follow, and recognizing the growing requirements of llie city, it is not going too fnr lo predict Hint at least $000,-
000 worth of buildings will be erected
during 1800. Uf the buildings erected
during 188!I a low remarks may be made
with advantage. Tlie addition to llie
asylum for Ihe insane cost $50,000, and
largely increased the capacity of that institution. Itis an extensive building,
of imposing architectural proportions,
and excellently situated.
Till-' MOLAR HN-ROKp SAW WILLS,
now  almost completed,  have  cost to
dnte  about $150,000.    These  are the
largest saw mills in the province, and
the finest and most complete on the Pacific const. Every piece of new saw mill
machinery, every labor and material
saving device, and the finest motive machinery purchasable, have beon placed
iu these mills. It is tho model mill of
Canada. Tbe main building is nearly
500 feet in length and 75 feet in breadth
and the capacity of the establishment is
.100,000 feet per day. It is expected
tliat no less than one vessel por week
will load lumber at lhe Meljaren-KoBS
Milts next summer for foreign ports.
The immense value nf such an institution as this in our midst may easily lie
appreciated.
FINK UUSINKSS BLOCKS.
The Itnshhy block, creeled on Columbia, McKenzie and Front streets, at a
cost of $30,000, is n very flue building indeed, and adds greatly to the appearance of the locality in which it Htuuds.
There aro few buildings in tbe province
of more handsome finish or striking appearance. Long bofore itB walls were
built nearly every store in tbo building
had been let, and at rents which will
pay a handsome dividend on the capital
^invested.
t The Powell block, a fine, substantial,
five story, firo proof brick building,
corner Columbia street and Lytton
square, is one of the best buildings, and
probably the  most substantial, in  the
'city. It was erected at a cost of $25,-
(MO, whicli, considering the workmanship ami the size of the building, is considered it very low figure,   The Colum-
i jiian printingestablishmelitoccupies tbo
' Lytton squaro side of the block. The
upper pnrt of the building will boused
for offices and othor purposes, und the
two stores on the Columbia street level
are very suitable for any line of goods.
KOVAI- COLUMBIAN  IIOSl'ITAL.
Few cities of double or even treble the
population of Woslinhiafor can boast of
the excellent hospital accommodation
with which the city is furnished. The new
| Royal Columbian Hospital, erected hist
f year near tho extreme eastern boundary
of tbu city, is n building and institution
of which the Royal City is  proud—and
with just cause.   It is a fine structure
1 from an architectural point of view, and
1 is strongly built, handsomely finished,
hind furnished with all the lafest and
1 most improved  appliances as  regards
I heating, lighting, ventilation, drainage,
[ etc.   lis site is beautiful and commanding, situated ns it is on the highest hind
[ in the eastern suburbs, and from where
[im excellent view may be had of the
I faultless scenery both up and dowu ihe
I Fraser river valley and a perfect view of
lllie rugged grandeur of the Pitt Lake
liiiijiintaiiis to tho iiurtb.   Tbe hospital
Islands some distance above the fog line,
lind is so situated that tho natural (Irain-
|age alone, without  artificial  aid, will
keep the promises in a perfect sanitary
[condition.   Bosldos its use asa hospital,
'jlic institiilion might he called a 1 ionic
told men.   Within its walls are many
kmeeis of tbe  province,   the   host
pf whose lives have been spent in
ffng in  lho development of  the
.Buntry's resources, and who after a
Thusy life have  met   with  accident or
sickness, thus depriving them of the
flheans of eurning a livelihood.   Theso
f are tenderly cared for within tho hospi-
L' JMr walls of this excellent institution
.IRTmine incapable of maiutainingtheiiv
[ selves aro  ever turnod  adrift on tho
1 world again after having onco been nd-
' milted.   Tho patlenta   treated  in  the
Royal Columbian hospital come from all
parts of the provinco, Cariboo, Kootenay,
| Somilkumeon,    the    northern    coast,
pmineca, Cassiar and other points noar-
*|al hand.   The best medical assistance
Jprovided, and its management is all
riot could be desired.   Tho cost oftho
'new hospital was $15,000.
THK KXIIIIIITION HUILI'INCIS
erected last summer on Queen's park
.aire tlio only buildings worthy tho name
in the province. They are largo and
comploto in every detail, and will compare not unfavorably with similar buildings in tlie largest eastern cities. The
stock yards and stables in connection
with the building are capable of accommodating 400 head, but aB even this capacity hardly proved adequate at tho
provincial exhibition held in Octobor
last, it has been definitely decided to
doublo the number of stalls and'pons.
The exhibition building proper is built
in the form of a Maltese cross, but is
uot yet complete; two wings aro to he
added to the northern ond of the building. It will hold, when filled with oxhibits, fully 6,000 people, but whon the
northern wings are added tho accommodation will be largely increased. The
athletic grounds, tho finest in Canada,
and the race courso, the only good one
in the province, the two covering some
25 acres of ground, lio immediately in
front of tho buildings, and tho games
and raws can he easily viewed from tho
galleries. The buildings and grounds
togothor have cost up to dato about $25,-
000; this year $12,000 additional will be
spent iu futuro improvements. All this
speaks volumes for the enterprise and
energy of the poople of Westminster.
"Make the city attractive and people
will como to it, is a good motto, and
the royal hurghora by theBo improvements and adornments show that they
realize its worth.
MOODY BQUARK   PA UK.
Recognizing tho fact that healthy
athletic sports are neeeasary for tho
youth of tho city, us well as to provido
pleasure grounds for those who aro unable, owing to its distanco, to make ubo
of Queen's park, tho city council of 1889
introduced a by-law to raise $10,000 for
the improvement of Moody, square, a
piece of bind in the west end, 30 acres in
extent. The by-law was put to a vote
of tho people and carried by a large majority, and Moody square will be cleared,
graded and converted into a handsome
pleasure ground before the end of tho
coming summer. Albert crescent, on
Columbia Btreet, will also be improved
next summer, $2,000 having been voted
for that purpose. Outsiders may wonder at a city with the population of Westminster possessing over 00 acres of free
plensure grounds within Ub limit. But
outsiders do not stop to conaider that
the people of to-day are looking beyond
the prosent generation, and realize that
Westminster ia of a certainty bound to
bo a large and important city, and in
providing for coming wants they are
only anticipating what will be absolutely
necessary a few yeara hence.
BTREET IMPROVEMENTS.
During 1880 atreet improvements were
carried on to a very large extent, much
more work being done in this direction
than in any previous year in the city's
biBtory. The rapid growth of the city,
more especially in the tipper portion,
und in the east und west ends, necessitated thia work being entered into on a
large scale. Property holders in these
portions of the city wished to build, but
aa thia waa impossible in many instances, aa not even a cow trail indicated
the whereabouts of some of tho streets,
something had to be done. Tho council
look tho matter in hand and passed it
loan by-law to rnise money to carry on
the necessary improvements, and before
the closo of tho year nine miles of streets
hud been opened and graded, and nine
miles of now sidewalks wore laid down.
These improvements have vastly changed the appearance of the city for the better, and have enabled many lot owners
to build without hindrance. The value
of property on the stroots improved
has largely appreciated, in some instance the increase being as high as 50
per cent. The opening out of now
slreets, and tho repairing of old ones
will be continued this yenr, nnd work
will be energetically prosecuted as soon
us the spring opens.
A 'CITV OV HOMKS.
Westminster ia pre-eminently a cily
of homes. The larger proportion of the
population dwell beiieatli their own
roofs. The rensons are evident. Thero
arc uo poor people within the city limits
every family is well ablo to smi|>ort itself. Wages arc good, even high, and
work is always to be had. He ia a luzy
num who remains idle in Westminster.
The large majority of mechanics, und
employees of the different manufacturing establishments, own tho houaes they
livo in, Lund is cheap, lumber is tho
same, and only moderate economy is required to enable the averago mechanic
to savo the necessary sum to give him-
self a home. Taxes aro not excessive,
while rents show an upward tendency,
another inducement for him lo build,
lt is doubtful if another city on the continent can ahow the same wealth and
prosperity among tho artisan and laboring classes as can Westminstor. The
rented houses aro occupied chiefly hy
office men, clerks and shop-keepers.
Last year 325 dwelling houses were
erected within the limit* of Weatmlnster—nearly double the nutnlier evor
built iu any previous year. These buildings ranged from tho humble dwelling of
the working man at a cost of $500, to
  '  ** •* iiat
liiu millWIlK lllllll Ub   U     l-USb     in     f ouv, n.
the palatial residence of tho capitalist
costing $15,000. Of the class of dwellings costing from $3,000 to $5,000 a vory
large number were built, but the great
majority of the buildings erected cost in
the neighborhood of $1,000 each. Tho
opening nut of now streets during the
lattor half of the year gave a great impetus to building operations, but as the
work iu some localities was not commenced till the summer wub nearly
gone, the reul building boom was necessarily delayed till this year. It is fully
expected that this year will see at least
400 new resiliences added to the city.
OUR INDUSTIIIEB.
The moat important industry on tho
Fraaer river, is tho salmon fisheries.
Westminster is the Balmon pucker's
headquarters. Itis here he obtains a
large portion of his supplies, his labort
does his banking, and other importan,
business. The fishermen employed during the season, somo 5,000 in number,
spend their earnings in Westminster.
And those earnings ure not small In good
seasons. Last year the fishermen nver-
aged from $000 to $1,300 each for only
six weeks, work—lurge figures, but positively correct. The salmon pack on the
Fruser river last your amounted to 307,-
000 cases of four'dozen cans each, besides which au immense quuntityof
fresh salmon was exported and'much
more Baited and barreled. The value of
tho Fraser river flab catoh for 18811
amounted to over $2,000,000. At leaat
25 per cent, of this great nmount—aay
$500,000— waa spent in Westminster.
Thus tho value of the Fruser river fish
erics to the royal city ia clearly ahown.
There are Hi canneries on the Frasor,
above and below Westminster, and the
capital invested in them amounts to
more thun $1,800,000.
TUB SAW  MILLS.
Next to the fisheries, the lumber industry is the most important iu Westminstor. lt gives employment to a great
many men, and the work is steady during the whole, year. The present output of the mills is vory largo, but all the
companies are adding to their capacity,
and the cut this year, with that of the
MeLaren-RoBB Alills added, will lie four
times ub great ns ever before.
ROYAL CITY MILLS.
The Royal City Pinning Mills Compnny, lately merged iuto tho British Columbin Mills, Lumber und Trading Co.,
is the largest and most import unt lumber
maiuifncliiriiig concern in the province.
The company owns largo mills iii Vancouver, but Westminster Sb its headquarters, and the output of the mills in
this city amounts to moro than 76 per
cent, oftho company's entire cut. The
milla of the compnny have a combined
capacity of 300,000 feet for a duy of 10
houra, but when u double shift Is worked the output can cosily be raised to
500,000 feet daily. Apurt from the mills
proper, are tho box factory and shingle
ana planing milla, which consume fully
50 per cont. of the output in the manufacture of doors, aiiahes, mouldings,
carvings and pnnnelllngs, and laths,
pickets, shingles and boxes. Many
thousaud doors and sashes were turned
out last year, and found a ready market
ovon as far east as Montreal.   The box
factory manufactured no less thun 225,-
000 fish boxes during 1880, and the
shingle mill cut 25,000.000cedurBhingles
—the bost in the world. In connection
with tho sash nnd door factory the company handles nn immense quantity of
glasB, tho lust order amounting to 3,000
cases. Tho Royal City Planing Mills Co.
employs obout 1,000 mon in connection
witli its mills, lumber yards, stoamers,
logging camps, stores and offices, nnd
tlie pny roll amounts to many thousand
dollars monthly. Last year live vosbcIb
loaded lumber at tho company's wharves
for English, Australian and South
Amoricun ports. Tho company owns
the largest fleet of tugs in tho province,
and win add now vessels this year. Tho
munufucturefl of tho Royal City Pinning
Mills Co. find their wny into ull parts
of Canada, and also into many of the
atntos in the neighboring republic. The
Barney & Smith Company, of Dayton,
Ohio, nave used many million feet of
lumber, for car building, manufactured
in Westminster, and pronounce it tho
host timber for theae purposes that tho
continent affords. The ft. C. P. M. Co.
ia prepared to supply sticks of timber
from any size up to 30 inches square by
150 feet in length.
THE IHtUNETTE SAW   MILLS.
This company mudon small beginning,
but is rnpiuly coming to the front nB one
of the moat important lumber manufacturing establishments in the province.
Its output last year wus much larger
than ever before, and business increased
so rupidly during the spring aud summer
thnt it was found necessary tn run the
mill hotil day and night. About 5,000,-
000 feot of the cut waa re-mnnufnetured
into doors, Bushes, mouldings, boxes,
etc. The number of fish boxes turned
out wus 113,000 und shingles 12,000,000.
This compnny haa now in course of erection a now mill, which will hnve u cu-
paeity of 100,000 feet daily; th'-i will
more than double tlieir output in past
yeara. Increasing businesa necessitated
thia addition to the company's works,
and it is bound to keep abreast of the
growing demands. The latest nnd most
improved machinery ia being placed in
the new mill. The Brunette Saw Mill
Co. employs about 200 men all told, and
tho prosperity of the eastern end of the
city is largely due to tho presence of
this large labor-employing concern.
THE WOOLEN   MILLS.
Tho only mills in the province for tho
manufacture of woolen fabrics are located in WeBtmlnster. A few years ago
the provincial government and also the
city offered a bonus to tho first woolen
mills established in the province. Some
enterprising capitalists at once aaw their
opportunity, went boldly into the
scheme, and the Wcsiminster Woolen
Mills Company to-duy is the reault. The
enterprise hus prospered nnd is a satis-
fuctory success in ull points. The lines
of goods manufactured are tweeds, flannels, blankets and yarns. The mako of
blankets is equal to uny of the imported
lines, uud so highly hnve they come into favor that ull the looniB ure kept busy
the wholo year round to supply the demand. Only the courser lines of tweeds
nro manufactured, but finer lines will
probably bo taken up when the mills nre
enlarged. It is the intention of the
company to add a large number of new
machines during the coming spring, aud
when theso have been put in place and
in running order, the output of the
manufactory will ho at least doubled.
The mills employ a lurge number of
hniuls, and constant additions ure being
mnde to the working stall'.
Mr. James Rousseau's tannery, which
employs a considerable number of
hands, nud converts a largo quantity of
provincial raw material iuto a good
quality of leather for all purposes, every
yeurj is a homo industry worthy of
Bpecuil mention.    ■
OTHER INDUSTRIES.
WestminBter is wull supplied with ma-
shine shops nnd fouudrys, there boing
no less than four of each in the city.
Castings and machinery can be mado and
repaired with the same facility as iu the
largest cities on the continent, uud yet
these establishments ure only the growth
of u few years. Five years ago tlioro
was scarcely work enough for one machine shop and foundry, to-day all are
kept busy, and nt some seasons of the
year are obliged to run duy and night.
Within the lust fow weeks a company
has been formed in Westminster, to be
known us the Union Iron Works, which
will hnve the largest machine shops and
foundry on the mainland wheu in operation, about July next.
SHIP   UUILDING,
though still in its infancy, is a very important branch of the industries to be
found in the oity. In all there aru throe
yards, two at tlie entrance to the North
Ann, and one at the mouth of the Brunette river. These yards laat year
launched vessels to the value of $150,-
000, chiefly tugs und river steamers, but
a few small schooners wore successfully
built. About a year ago a company was
all but formed to build son going vessels
of 700 or 800 tonB burden. Unfortunately the acheme fell through, which .ia
to be regretted, for at tho freight ratos
which have prevailed for the last 12
months the first vessel would have paid
for itself within tho year. The building
of large eluas vessels is an industry
which Bhould not be allowed to Ho dormant, und tlioro Ib a splondid opening
in Westminster for men of enterprise in
this direction. The city would liberally
bonua a ship building company, lumber
is cheap and convenient to tho ship
yards, and the lumber mills will agree
to find a first cargo for any vessel built
on the Fraser. This yoar a large numbor
of river craft will be built, and soveral
are at present on the waya. Tho season
hna opened bright iu the shipbuilding
lino, and it iB probable that beforo the
end of the year all past records, as to
number und size of vessels launched,
will bo eclipsed.
COMING ENTERPRISES.
A* number of the largest fruit growers
in the city and district have now in
hand a acheme for tho formation of a
fruit cunning and packing company, and
thoy intend to go into tho enterprise
on a large bcuIo. The preliminaries
huvo been arranged, sufficient capital
is promised, und the schemo will bud
forth into life within tho next three
montha. British Columbia imports vast
quantifies of preserved fruits annually
from California, und it is to supply the
market with home productions tlmt the
new company ia being formed. There
is n splendid field for this industry, and
it ia sure to prove a success. Fruit is
plentiful ami of excellent quality, so
that them will bo no lack of material.
For several years past Mr. .lames A.
Laidlaw, the well-known salmon packer,
hna canned a lurge quantity of plums,
annually. These goods hnvo been
sampled by experts, nml pronounced
equal in evory way to any canned on
the continent, and fur superior to the
California article.
A flour mill, with a capacity of 100
barrels daily, a paper mill and a number
of other enterprises are now being organized, the most of which will take form
before tho close of the yoar.
Iu our necessarily limited space and
time it is impossible iu an article of this
kind to go iuto the ninny industries nt
longth, but the few mentioned will suffice to show that Westminster is provided with all the manufactories thut go to
make up u prosperous city. Every yenr
our requirements uro growing grentor,
und ns the wants ure felt industries
pringup to fill thom.
It hns been shown how Westminster
has grown and developed, hi size and
Importance, and tho main sources from
whleh our prosperity ia derived hnvo
beou set forth. But Woatminster is only
enjoying the first fruits of nrosporily
und importance, mid the city is hound,
forced by the inevitable, una the richness of Us surroundings, to advance
steadily and rapidly until it becomes,
what nature Intended, thu largest commercial, manufacturing and shipping
centre in British Columbia.
TRIBUNAL OF  FOOLS.
The Queor and Tline-Hoaored Institution
of a Bfttlenosfi Town.
Tho littlo town of Stookaoh, In Baden,
whioh hna barely 2,000 inhabitants, on-
joyn tlio peculiar title of "Deutschlnnd'a
Narren Residens"—that is, the German
emir', {or capital) of fools, saysCassoll's
Sn inlay Journal. Tlio name originated
in the privilege accorded to the town by
letlora patent, and exercised for centuries, of holding annually at carnival
time a publio fool's assize, at which all
tho follies committed by the poople of
the town and vicinity were made known
and held up to publio ridioulo. According to local tradition Stookaoh waa tho
birthplace of Hans Kuonl, jester to Leopold, tho brothor of Albert tho Wise,
Archduke of Austria. Just beforo tho
hattie of Morgarten, in 1815, the man In
motley was asked |to express his opinion
of tho plans of the oampaign, which hnd
been adopted in hia presence. Hans
shook his cap and bells and answered:
"Your spooches please mo littlo, my
masters, for you only think and debate
how you shall enter the enemy's territory, but take no thought how you shall
leavo It." The battle took place. Leopold's
forcea wore defeated and escaped doath
almost by a miracle. Then the Aroh-
duko Albert, ''because the fool had
boon wiser than his all brother counselors," gavo him the right "to sit in
judgment upon the wiso" annually in
hia nativo town, and granted many privileges and immunities to this "fools'
court," This peculiar tribunal, whioh
met evon in the present contury, was
composed of the "father of fools" as
presidont, and an unlimited number of
"fool councilors" as associates. Tho
members of the oourt met in January to
soleot the eases to be presented to tho
court and to arrange the programmo for
the subsequent festival of fools. Theso
preliminary meetings took plaeo in a
tavern callod the Fools' Inn and distinguished by a Bpocial shield or tablet
on tho outer wall. On the Sunday beforo Shrovo Sunday the fools' clerks, in
fantastic garb, drove through tho town
in a carriago drawn by four horses attended by nogro footmen and outriders,
and loudly notified the attentive, and in
many casos anxious, inhabitants, that
sueh and such cases would ho presented
to the oourt to bo hold on tho approaching Shrove Tuesday.
Shrove Sunday and Monday wero
given over tothe "young fools," or tho
children, who marched through the
streets in fantastic dress, as they did,
and still do, in many oilier places.
Meanwhile a number of tho boys maintained a sort of watch at tho fools'
tree, and, with ear-splitting noises and
blowB of whips, drovo away all comers
who wero not fantastically attired. In
reward for thla sorvico eaoh urchin received an immenso fools' oako. On the
oagorly-awaited Sbrovo Tuesday, at ten
o'clock in tho morning, tho membors of
tho oourt assembled on n great platform
in tho opon air, and tho judicial proceedings wero begun. Tho fools' prosecutors mado thoir satlrioal accusations,
and tho porsons conviotod of folly, when
their crimes had boon described, wore
punished by having thoir names ontered in the hook of fools. No one was
spared. Tho guilty ones, without
distinction of porson, woro publicly ridiculed and enrolled among the
fools. Protestations wore of no
avail, and whoever ventured to criticise tho sentenco of tho court or
to apeak in favor of tho convicted fools
was declared to be a fool himsolf
and his namo was put on tho
roll. Whon all tho cases had
beon disposed of a procession, headed
by tho council of fools, marched
through tho streets, pausing frequently, ospooially boforo tho bouses of
tho convicted porsons, to rond aloud tlm.
sontonco of the court to tho great delight of tho populace, Tho sontonco
was alao affixed to the doors of tho criminals' houses. Then begun tbo festival
of fools, the programmo of which included a lively theatrical representation
for the populace, a banquet.at tho Fools'
Inn. and anothor banquet and danco in
tho evening. On tho next day, Ash
Wodnesday, at four o'clock In tho afternoon, the oouncil again assembled boforo tho Fools' Inn to bury their folly.
At tho hoad of tho procession cume two
young folk bearing immenso keys—the
keys to the roalm of folly. Noxt came
the fools' guard, oarrylng a parti-colored
and decorated staff, oh tho top of which
was tho bust of Hans Kuonl. He was
followed by two fools' treasurers, who
boro an ancient oarved chest containing
the books of fool and the records of tho
oourt Then came the father of fools,
usually the oldest male inhabitant of
tbe town. Tho rest of the fools followed, walking two and two, with bowed
hoads and in silence, liko attendants at
a fum»i-al. When the procession had
reached the fools' tree it marched around
it three times and then disponed, and
tho reign of folly waa ovor for that yoar.
NEW SUBMARINE  BOAT.
A Recent Invention of the French fur
Wrtr at Sea.
The Goubet, the namo of tho boat
built by a private firm at the expense of
the State, ia a Uttle boat 6.00 motors
long and 1.53 meters broad. It oan hold
two mon. The body of tho craft is cast
ia bronzo of a singlo piece, and onn,
therefore, bear a very high pressure. It
is movod by electricity, whioh in caso of
failure oan be replaced by oars. Completely armed lt weighs 6,000 kilogrammes (about 13,000 pounds), and oan,
thoreforo, be transported easily everywhere.
The oloctrlclty, as may bo safoly assumed, Ib ohtninod from accumulators tn
tho boat, but it seoms that tho propelling force can also ho transferred to
tho boat from land or from a ship accompanying tho Goubet by means of a wire,
which would naturally considerably
hamper the movements of tho sub*
marine oraft. Tho stores of compressed
air are said to last for twenty-four hours,
and enn, hy an automatic arrangement,
bo Bo'distrlbiitod that tho state of tho air
in the shipiaaonatnnt, Tho boat was immersed for oighb hours at a dopth of 10
meters with two sailors ln it, and these
lattor experienced not the slightest tn-
convenionco during that period. As a
special advantage It Is claimed for the
boat that it ean at a word of command
sink any depth, greatest probably 10
meters, remain thore aud change its position at will. Tho sinking and rising
In tho water, it is Bald, oan ho executed
with tho greatest regularity, which is
not the caso apparently with the Spanish submarine boat Por al and tho othor
French ItoatGymnote.—Cologne Garotte.

Two business failures have occurred
in Vancouver during the last few dayB.
Westminster, more modest thun her enterprising neighbor, cau only boast of
one small failure in several years, and
then the bankrupt party came to ns
from Vancouver.
Although the lumber for n new sidewalk was laid down on Clement street
some months ngo, nothing has been done
towards building this much required

The heaviest snow fall of the season
occurred at Nanaimo on Wednesday.
The flakes wero extraordinarily large,
some of them measuring two and a half
inches in longth. As a consequence of
this storm the telegraph and telephone
wires Buttered to a considerable extent
A new telephone has been placed in
the city lockup, und now all that telephone siibseriliei's have to do when tho
festive burglar attempts to carry oil* the
gold and silver plate, or perhaps a half
empty cau of coul oil, is to cull up Constable Smith who will soon pluce the
robber in the civic hotel.
The Victoria Times is in hot water
again, having fallen foul of a Victoria
school teacher, and damaged his BUHccp-
tibilities to the extent of *r.,000. Mr.
Jas, Halliday, the aggrieved party, has
entered un notion for libel against the
above paper, which causes the Times to
remark tliat it "hopes to survive all pro-
seditions of this kind."
The train was four hours late yesterday, having heen detained hy a small
slide iu the mountains. It is a matter
of congratulation that so far this season
theae has been no serious delays on the
Canadian Pacific road—only a few hours
being the longest—while on the American lines the trains have uot heen running on schedule time for a montli.
It is generally thought that the nobk
K. de K. should  he got into running
order again, and continue her intorest
ing and exciting trips tothe Brownsvilk
lide.   It is understood that the steamer
requires a uew set of paddle wheels,
perhaps it does, but it may be more like
the traditional gun which was badly in
need of a now lock, stock und barrel.
Business has been steadily improving
all this week, and the lull in trade which
usually follows the holiday .season may
be said to have come to nn end. Tho
merchants ure busy opening their spring
stocks, and they one and all anticipate
a rushing trade during tho coming sea-
sou. It is expected tliat by tho end of
this month all the spring goods will be
received.
In the provincial parliament. Mr,
ThoH. Cunningham, M, IM'., said, in
moving tho address, that a new sawmill
was being built on Burrard Inlet with a
capacity of about 250,000 feet daily, and
another mill at Westminster with a littlo
Iosb capacity. This should have been
reversed. Westminster Is building a
in II of 300,000 feet capacity daily, while
the Burrard Inlet establishment will
only have a dnlly output of 200,000 fuet.
Tiik Columiiian is indebted to Mr.
Zed S. Hall for throo of Carter's perpetual calendars. These useful gifts
adorn our palatial ofllces, nnd nro most
heartily appreciated by the wholo editorial staff.
Two inches of "tho beautiful" fell last
night, but the sun and warm winds
made short work of It to-day.
It is with a pardonable pride that we
lay before our readers and tho general
publie, thiB evening, what must be admitted to be a most creditable daily
newspaper for Westminster, and indeed
for many a city considerably larger and
of more pretensions. In the eyes of tho
outside world, at leaat, a well equipped
and enterprising press doeB not so much
retiect credit upon the publishers as
upon tho community from which the
papor drawB its support for newspapers
must have support—least, perhaps, of
all enterprises can they livo upon wind
—and the measure and kind of support
extended by a community to its papers
—plainly apparent iu both their reading
and advertising columns—is practically
taken as the gauge of the community
for general prosperity and progressive
ness.
An outsider, glancing over the columns of Tub Columbian of this evening
would naturally come to the conclusion
that Westininster waB a city of considerable size and not lacking in enterprise, and tho conclusion would not lie
far wrong. It may bo, of courso, that
we have anticipated a little in undertaking to publish a daily newspaper the
size of the new Columbian in this city
at the present time;' but wc have sufh-
clout confidence In tlie immediate and
ultimate future of the eity to predict
that any anticipation  that may have
tered as a factor into the scale and
general get-up of the new paper will lie
uniply justiiied, and that enterprise of
every nature in this city und district, as
woll hb in the province at large, will not
long go unrewarded,
By enlarging and improving Tub Columbian as has beon done, not only the
capital account but the daily running
expenses have been materially increased, Only those of our readers who
are, or at any time of their lives have
been, directly or indirectly connected
with the newspaper busmesB can form
any idea of the amount of the pecuniary
persuader it actually takes to keep unything like a decent newspaper going.
As between the old and the new Columbians the difference on tho face of things
is very apparent. The columns nre appreciably wider, considerably longer,
and thu reading type a size smaller, thus
giving more rending matter to even a
given Bpace than before. It will be seen,
also, that wo have added new und expensive features in the way of special
correspondence by telegraph and letters
from Victoria and Ottawa during the
sessions of parliament. Still other uew
features and improvements will be introduced as the occasion may suggest or
demand. Tuk Columbian is determined
to keep in tlie front rank of provincial
journalism iu all respects, and as n local
paper especially it will, us in the past,
take Becond place with none. By the
free distribution of papers this evening,
many nou-subBcribers will have an opportunity of judging of the merits of tho
new Columiiian themselves, and we be
lievo that nearly all will seo it to ho
greatly to their advantage to become
regular subscriliers forthwith. The subscription rates, at the head of the leader
columns, will be found as low by the
week or month as the smallest daily in
the province, and the advance rates for
six months uud a year are lower than
some of the principal provincial dailies.
As we stated yesterday, copies of this
first issue of Tiik Daily Columbian will
bo mailed to each Wkkki.v subscriber,
and many more besides. The lirst.
regular Wkkklv since the tire will be issued a week from Wednesday next, ou
February 12th, and we cau promise thut
the BtibscriberB to that paper will be
more than pleased with its enlarged size
and handsome make-up. It will also
contain some new features, aud, to draw
it mild, will be second to uo weekly
paper in the provinco.
Even in the midst of our felicitations
wo havo lo regret that, owing to a lurge
portion of our plant, which should have
arrived over a week ago, nol having
reached this city yet, the style and up-
pearauco of the papor, in several minor
but important respects, has suffered
typographically thereby, both iu regard
to reading mattor and the advertise
ments. We shall be In a position to
remedy these defects very soon, how
ever, uud in tho meantime would ask a
continuance of the kind indulgence
which our renders and advertisers have
shown for the past mouth.
Tub Columiiian is now printed in the
new offices iu the Powell brick block,
corner of Columbia street and Lytton
square, with an entirely new outlit
throughout. The job department of the
business we expect to have running,
with a complete new plant, iu the sam'i
building, some time next week. The
editorial and business offices of Tiik Columbian will, until further notice, continue iu the Hank of II. 0. building,
room I, pending the completion of the
new ofllces ou the Columbia street flat
of the Powell block.
The pile-driver is at work driving piles

Although the potatoe famine has not
arrived yet, it is so near that lovers of
the tuber family fairly shudder at the
prospect of losing the most important
item in the daily bill of fare. Forty-
two dollars a ton iB now asked for potatoes, and they tire very scarce at that
price. The market is almost bare, and
the immediate prospects of a future supply are vory poor indeed. It would not
lie a vory great surprise to the poopio of
Westminster and British Columbia generally to find themselves eating Prince
Edward laiaiidpotnbtes before the merry
month of May.

A despatch from Ottawa announces
that the steamship mail subsidy between
Westminster and Vancouver has beeu
cancelled, this being due, it is said to a
the fact that the mails uow come by the
way of Vancouver. It is hinted, however, that a reduced subsidy will be
granted to a steamer service between
the two ports. This news will uot be
well received in Westminstor, and sturdy protests on tho subject will bo forwarded to Ottawa before the end of next
woek. It is lo bo hoped the matter will
be taken up without delay, and it iscer-
taiu that if proper representations arc
made the mistake will bo satiBfactorily
rectified before the present session is

The Victoria papers admit, without
mincing matters that thu last sale of
Now Westminster debentures was something much better than Victoria or Vancouver could expect for their issues of
the same kind of of goods. The Times
pays the royal city the following compliment: "The finance committee of the
New Westminstor city council have accepted a bid of 103^ for $200,000 worth
of dolientures, being the highest tender.
The premium is certainly worthy of
noting considering tho largo amount of
bonds already outstanding; but it is a
great compliment to the city, as the premium exceeds lhat generally offered for
Victoria and Vancouver debentures, and
demonstrates faith in tho royal city's
stability."

Yesterday afternoon Willie Elliott,
son of Mr. Harry Elliott, went out ton
Chinese wood camp near Sapperton, to
ascertain why the Chinaman employed
by Mr. F-Iliott was not cutting wood,
On approaching the shanty uo signs of
lifo were visible, and a number of shouts
failed lo awaken the inmate. Young
Elliott was surprised, ami concluded to
enter and see what had become of the
man. Ho was horrified, however, ou
opening the door, to find the Chinaman
sitting upright on a chair, cold aud
dead. Thore was no fire in tlie shanty,
and from tlie appearance of thinga in
general it- was evident the iiiuii had boon
doad some days. A largo stick lay beside the chair, but- whether or not foul
play had beeu dealt, Elliott did not examine into. The mallei' was reported
lo Mr. Moresby, who went out to-day to
investigate the circumstances.

The mannor in which Westminster
has thrown herself forward of late in all
branches of athletic pastimes ia highly
encouraging to thoso of her citizons who
have been waiting for years to see the
dawning of the athletic era in her midst,
lt has come, and seems destined to
llourish ami grow strong. No Important branch of athletics is unrepresented
in this city; many of them are very strong
indeed, and are proud to number among
thoir individual niemliers sume whose
naineB are well-known in tho wide world
of sport. This awakening of tho Boyal
City to the taste for athletic sports cannot lie called a ronaisnuco. as it is the
first time in her history that so much
public interest has boon displayed in tho
games and amusements of the younger
membors of the community. With the
completion of the Queen's park, the
athletic grounds and race track,'the
hopes of thoso who bad waited patiently
for years the development of better
tilings for Westminster's youth were
happily consummated, and Westininster
possesses to-day tho finest ball ground
aud athletic park in tho province.

What is wanted now, nud wanted had,
is an electric street railway lino right up
to the gates of the park. Until this
evidence of civilization is ready for use,
it cannot be expected that the large
crowds which would in Ihatevetitgalher
to witness the contests will bo forthcoming ; everybody can't hir<> a hack or
a nag, although nearly everybody can
walk, aud everybody would rather havo
someliody elso take tin! exercise and lhe
health accruing, if he wants it. With
a slreet car line from, say the postoffiee,
up Mary street to Agnes, thence up ('lenient street to Hoyal avenue, and on lo
I "ark Lano, we should be able to witness
the pleasant spectacle every Hue Saturday afternoon of car after car gliding out
to the park, or studying the wonders iu
tho museum or picture gallery {tn lie) in
tho park buildings. It would be a bonanza for the street railway directors and
a splendid thing for tho people and the
clubs nnd everybody. Ton cents and
return ont to the park, twonty-flvo cents
admission (o thogrniul-stand, something
less, nnd a good time generally. Why,
oven tho .stroot-car conductor would
have a decent chance to "knock down"
enough during the summer season io
start a palatial saloon in the full, and
wear diamond shirt-studs as big as elms-
nuts.
Athletics in the city are ably represented by tho following five clubs*. LacrosHe.
football, cricket, lawn tenuis, baseball
(temporarily dofunet), the rille association, and a boating club, which will
blossom into sliding scats ami outriggers
this spring, if all goes woll.
LACltOBHR.
Taking tho first, Canada's own pet
sport, It will bo fonnd that the club was
organised and auspiciously Blurted on Its
career on the first of Juno last yoar, with
tlvo old. or more correctly, eastern players, anil a membership of thirty as till-
tluisiiiHlic young follows as the country
boasted at that t ime. The officers of the
club were Messrs. James Harvey, presidont; T, Mowat, 1st vice-president; F.
G. Strickland, 2nd vice; Max Mowat,
Boc.-troiiB.; ,1, 0. Whyto. club captain,
C. I'olloy, Hold captain. From a lnoriisse
point of view ibis was " coming it
strong," as all the above-named gentlemen aro noted patrons of sport ur first-
rate athletes themselves. Aftor sedulously practicing und training, the youug
club decided to test the mottle of tlie
victOiitt club, wliich held tho championship of the province. Tho rosult
was a victory for tho Westminsters, ami
It wns a glorious one, being It to 2, and
gave athletes, especially lacrosse, a per
fect boom in the Roynl City, besides instilling tho utmost confidence in the
players. Westminster was defeated by
the Vancouver team at Kamloops, but a
few weeks later tho tables were turned
and tbe Westminsters again crowed victoriously. The last game of the season
was the most exciting struggle ever witnessed in tbo province, and like many
another greater battlo it was only deluded by tho intervention of darkness,
the result being a draw. This drawn
battlo left the championship of the province iu u vory unsettled state and gave
riso to many disputes. It may be truthfully said, however, thnt no claim forthe
championship is so strong as Westminster's, as the record plainly shows. The
matter will not linger long in donbt
when the campaign of '0(1 opens, and
the tennis, refreshed and strong, sally
j'orth to take the field like giants re-
foicing in their strength. The prospects
forthe coining season are exceedingly
bright and interesting. The Hoyal City
club expects to receive au accession of
nonprofessional strength this season that
will effectually set at rest all disputes as
to superiority on the Held. For the benefit of thoso who have never seenagitnie
of lacrosse, nnd it is really surprising
how many there aro who havo not, it
may horo'bo Btated that probably no
game extant is capable of arousing so
much excited enthusiasm or of calling
forth the very best qualities of an athlete, namely, speed of limb and power
of wind. Through the gallantry inseparable from gentlemanly athletics, the
ladies aro admitted free to all these
beautiful contests, and it is to bo hoped
that Ihey will grace this year's meetings
with their fair presence in goodly numbers: if the Indies turn out well, the
male portion of the population is sure to
como eniiiasBO lind dressed in gorgeous
array, eminently destructive to the peace
of tlie feminine heart.
KOOTIIAl.L.
The inception of this grand old Angli
Saxon pastime in Wostminstor is due to
the indefatigable oflbrtsof a faithful few,
who trumpeted its praises in the ears of
muscular citizons until the prosent
Hinart club grew inlo boing, and began
kicking with the vigor of ratepayers
when a scheme to spend more money
passes the council. The officers of the
club aro ex-Mayor Townsoiid, presidont;
Mr. G. I). Brymner, 1st vice-president;
Dr. C. J. Fagan, 2nd vice; Mr. It. B.
Lister, captain; ,1. A. McMartin, vico-
captaiu; ,1. S. Chile, Jr., sec.-treas. The
colors of the club are blue and white,
and the total strength is forty mom-
bora. The first fifteen had the honor
of winning tbo championship medals
against Vnucouver in the match played
at. the Queen's park during oxhibition
woek. Shortly after that auspicious
event the same team was beaten by the
Vancouvor club at Hastings, leaving the
record even. An exciting match was
played with Victoria on the hitler's own
grounds, with tlie result of three tries to
nothing in favor of Wostminstor. In
the return game, which was played here,
one of the most desperate and pi tiddly
contested matches took place over recorded in the province. In spite of the
deluge of rain, the awful condition of
the ground, and the consequent discomfort to llie players, the utmost good nature prevailed on both sides, and the
two teams spout a very jolly ovening
after the match. This memorable struggle ended with one try to nothing in
favor of Westminstor. There can be
nothing invidious in saying that the
homo team is far ahead of any that Victoria can produce. Owing to the pho-
nomenally.wiiitry weather lately experienced* here, football operations have
been totally suspended, but gootl sport
is anticipated on the departure of the
snow ami ice. A match which waa to
have taken place ou the IDtli inst. had
to he put oil indefinitely on account of
the superabundance of'the "beautiful."
The font hall club ia possessed of tho
true modern spirit of advancement and
progress ami one of their aims has been
to bring about the amalgamation of all
the city clubs into an athletic association. The football club has again ami
again taken the initiative iu this commendable direction, but fruitlessly so
far. This spring an extra earnest ellbrt
will be mndo to produce this very desirable object. It surely must be patent to
tlio dullest imagination that in a union
of this kind there is strength of the
truest kind. Each club maintains its
own inviolable individuality and yot has
a voico in what concerns the welfare of
the association. Tho tiling has boon
tried in the oast and works beautifully
and with great profit.
Tho home tenm aro very anxious to
meet the Nanaimo club, and the hitter
heartily reciprocate the sentiment, but
are rather handicapped hy tlie fact tbat,
being all working men with little leisure, they would find it very inconvenient ns well as lis) expohsWo to como
over. Some satisfactory arrangement
may be made during the'coming season
whereby the two clubs may have tlieir
longings gratified.
CIU0KKT.
Tho brightest cricketing year that haa
oyer oponed in Westminater is in progress now. The cricket club is tho oldest in tho city, perhaps in the province,
and its career, while having been marked by many vicissitudes and fluctuations, haa also enjoyed manv glorious
triumphs ami pleasant meetings. The
club is about, the aamo age as Westininster, ami is, therefore, no sapling; Hourly evory citizen of any prominence hns
been enrolled on its roster antl its career
has been quiet and honorable and highly respectable, from its commencement
up to the present hour. Hut a new cycle is ubout to burst upon it, au era of
active life totally unprecedented in ils
quiet, annals. There have arrived in
town lately several gontlomon whose
reputation as cricketers extend far beyond the hounds of this province With
this new blond, the benefit of tholr example and the cnlluiaiaBin wliich their
lino play is sure to hialil into the othor
memli-crs of the club, Westminster's
cricket team may calmly real ou its bat
and accopl wilh confidonco lhe gage of
buttle from wheresoever flung. The
olub now enjoys the boat facilities for
practice, at tile new athletic grounds,
and no doubt they will turn out ami
practico earnestly und wilh the lirm do*
termination lo make their motto, "second to none." However, next fall will
show whether thoso high expectations
have been of loo Utopian a character or
not.
A MILITAltV GYMNASIUM.
With the reorganizing of the battery
horo and probably the building of a new
drill-shod thore Is more of intorest. In nn
athletic wny than appears ou the surface. When the battery begins drill
again, uno of the officers will start and
conduct a gymnasium for the benefit of
tho men. Thoro will bo no namby-
pamby work about It, tho'exorcisea, It is
intended, will mainly consist of tho combative Bports, boxing, wrestling, fencing, bayonet and sword exercises, and
others calculated to produce well developed specimens ni manhood, This
will be the only gymnasium lu Westminster nnd its graduates will be able to
give a good account of themselves wherever thoy go.
