A Sorrowful Wedding Night.
Brainerd, Minn., Feb. 21.—Lust niglit
was set for the marriage of Miss Lillie
Dean, daughter of a northside merchant,
to J. Bellmer. The latter was train
clerk on the Northern Pacific and both
young people were well esteemed. A
goodly party of frienda aesembled to
witness the ceremony, and after an even-*
ingspent in the usual felicitous manner
with the guests and friends, the twain
said good night and retired to the
bridal chamber. In leas than half an
hour the remaining guests were horrified to see the bride coming down stairs
in her night attire crying that her husband was dead. Rushing up stairs the
excited guests tound the bridegroom
lying on the bed, unconscious of their
efforts to rouse him. The dead mau
was from Flesherton, Ontario.
The Dual Language.
Ottawa, Feb. 20.—The dual language
debate was resumed -this afternoon. Mr.
Mitchell Bpoke in support of Sir J. S. D.
Thompson's amendment, as did Sir
John Macdonald. The Premier made a
passionate appeal to the House for support. He urged that the question
should be dropped, so that no danger of
race or creed trouble might be resumed,
if only for the credit of the country. The
other speakers were Messrs. Edgar, Barron, Dewdney, Richards and Langlier.
Bled From Exposure.
Halifax, N, 8., Feb. 20.—A young
girl, Rose Pabriquin, belonging to Loin-
dale, died under peculiar circumstances
on Monday night. She was the victim
of consumption and arose in the night,
it is supposed, in a fit of somnambulism,
wandered into the garden, lay down and
died from exposure.
The "Mail's" Opinion.
Toronto, Feb. 20.—The Mailsaya that
if the people of the Territories are deprived of the right of dealing with dualism as they see fit, the people of Manitoba must also be deprived of that right;
iu other words, it will be necessary for
the Government to disallow the Manitoba statutes abolishing the French
language and separate schools, and to
begin another long struggle with that
province. Is Parliament prepared for
such a conflict?

Chicaoo, Feb. 21.—Hing Lee, a Chinaman, who keeps a laundry, is locked up
at Maxwell Street station on the charge

Annie Barnesteiu, a pretty Bohemian
orphan, aged 15, was found in a room
with him. She was taken to the station
where she admitted having been criminally intimate with him. and gave the
names of other young girls who visited
Lee also, It is thought this will- develop into another Milwaukee affair, as it
is believed that the Chinese all over the
city are at the same thing.
Blood-Thlrity Negroes.
Raleigh, N.C., Feb. 21.—The negro
incendiaries at Rocky Mount have sent
a notice to prominent citizens there informing them that if the Rocky Mount
light infantry are ordered out the
negroes will kill them all if they have
to shoot them from ambush. Other
threats of a like character have been
made.        __„
Standard Time.
Cincinnati, Feb. 21.—The bankers of
this city to-day adopted standard time,
to begin at noon to-morrow.
A Serious Charge.
Cincinnati, Feb. 21.—In the United
States Court to-day during the progress
of .the Driggs counterfeit case, C. W.
Baker, one of the leading attorneys of

Chicago's defeated the Philadelphia's today in the flrst game of the Florida
series. Following is tho score: Chicago
8 {Philadelphia 3.
Railway Sold.
Indianapolfb, Ind., Feb. 21.—The
Ohio, Indiana & Western Railroad was
sold to-day by order of court to Samuel
Spencer, a stockholder, for $3,000,000,
subject to liabilities. The sale confirms
the lease to the "Big Four" syndicate.
Lom of Memory.
Chicago, Feb. 21.—In the jury bribery case O'Donnell, the defendent, was
on the stand nearly all day. Nothing
new was brought out except the remarkable loss of memory of the witness.
The Bawtelle Murder.
Dover, N.H., Feb. 21.—The coroner's
jury in the Sawtelle case finished its
work to-night. The verdict will not be
given for ten days. Some doubts are
now being cast on the theory that the
murder was committed in New Hampshire, as pistol shots in Kast Rochester
are not unusual. It is thought, however, the jury will declare that the murder was committed in this state. It is a
question now whether Isaacs will be
tried at the present term, as tlio grand
jury has been discharged. Isaacs still
maintains a stolid silence.
A Terrible Crime.
Fleming, S. D., Feb. 21.-Yesterday
morning Mrs. James Layton was found
dead. It was supposed to bo a caso of
suicide. Developments to-day show the
woman waB criminally assaulted nnd
murdered.
Another Syndicate.
Cincinnati, Feb. 21.—An English syndicate is here trying to purchase the
Woodworthy Machinery WorkB, of this
city, which are the largest in the United
States.      	
A Poor Arrangement If True.
New York, Feb. 21.—It is reported
that an understanding haB been reached
by Secretary Blaine and Sir Julian
Paunceforte, concerning the fisheries
question. The results reached are that
American fishermen are to have the
samo rights in Canadian waters
Canadians enjoy in American waters. To secure this concession Blaine is reported to havo agreed
to the admission of British sealers in
Behring Sea on the same terms that
American sealers are permitted there.
Tho Secretary' however, extends the
privilege morely as an offset, and not as
a resignation of the mare clausum policy,
which he has at all timeB ao positively
maintained.
The Haldlmand Election.
Toronto,   Feb.   20.—Dr.  Montague
(Conservative) is elected for Haldlmand
by over a hundred majority over Mr.
Colter (Liberal).
The  Eccentric Sarah.
New York, Feb. 20.—The Mail and
Express' Paris cable announcement of
the intended production of n passion
play in this city in Easter week has
scandalized the religious party in Paris,
and there is a considerable outcry
against it. It is unlikely that the censor
of plays will forbid it. Sara Bernhardt
seems to have set her heart on it and is
in a great state of mind over the indignation her purpose has aroused. She asks
what greater harm there cau be iu presenting a passion play iu Paris than in
presenting one in Oberammergaa. She
contends that she belongs to the same
glorious Jewish race ns the Virgin Mary
herself and in addition to this she hus
been baptized and has taken the communion in a Roman Catholic convent.
The general opinion in religious circles
and tlie apparent sentiment of the Government are a sufficient indication of the
temper in which this audacious scheme
of Barnhardt'B is received, and the whole
affair will probably amount to nothing
moro thun another exhibition of this
Iieeuliar woman's eccentric nature and
mnger for notoriety and novelty. Anything further would be generally regarded with disfavor and looked upon as
sacrilege. 	
A Terrible Snowstorm.
Sacramento, Cal., Feb. 20.—The storm
iu the Sierras continued unabated all
night and at 10:30 a. m. is besieging the
entire road from Cisco to Truckee. The
plows are hard at work, in fact doing
their utmost, but the appearances are
that the anow is gaining on thein. The
train that left here for the east on the
night of the 17th waB held at Cisco till
7:30 thiB morning, when it started again.
No ono seems to know whore itls at
thiB hour. The train leaving here on
the 18th instant ib held at Cisco and the
ono due to leave here last night remains
hero.
A frightful accident occurred one mile
eaat of the Capehorn mills, near Colfax,
last night at 9 o'clock. An engine rigged
up as a plow and pushed by four other
engines at a high rate of speed, struck a
broken rail and wont over the enbank-
ment followed by two others, piling
upon each other in a promiscuous mass,
entirely clear of the track, killing the
brakeman, Williams, and injuring one
engineer and two firemen, one of the
latter seriously.

night, came into collision with the

from his horse and terribly beaten. His
legs were also broken, and when he was
carried to a policeman's shelter the mob
madly wrecked the building.

THE S.A. AGAIN.
Editor Colombian-Sir; Iu looking
over your valuable paper of yesterday's
edition I see that a certain Presbyterian
of this city came to the conclusion the
fiiece I put in Tuesday's edition would
ustify the Anny In expelling me from
their meotlngs and sending me to the
jail, and putting me down as "An agent
of the Evil One." In my opinion, when
a roan is down such language as thai
would sink him lower.
Now this Presbyterian puts me down
pretty low and tries to raise the Army
in the eyes of the people of this city.
It makes me wonder if this same Presbyterian haB got any connection with the
editor of tlie Presbyterian Witness, ol
Halifax, N.8.. who, having been asked
his opinion of the Salvation Army and
its methods, says: "We have occasionally read their War Cry, which Ib not
an edifying paper. On the contrary, it
Ib a foolish, and in tho main a ridiculoue
production. We have seen their hymns,
mostly very poor. We have attended
two of their very special and much advertised meetings and they were quite
unworthy of sensible people. We have
seen their performances in the streets
on the Lord's day, and these we regard
as deplorable exhibitions."
T, Ronev.
A Valuable Opinion.
Dr. Campbell, Manager of the Rovelstoko Smelting Works, while in Winnipeg tho othor day, received u telegram
stating that a very rich vein of silver
had been struck in the Fish Creek mino,
north of the Glacier House, and about
twelve miles from the C. P. R. The
Doctor says that four new companies
with the needed capital will begin developing work on their claims in the
spring. American miners are flocking
into tno lower Kootenay district, where
they liavo been attracted by the big
finds made during the past year and a
half. Dr. Campbell says that tho mining prospects oi British Columbia never
looked brighter. He thinks that this
province will come quickly to tho front
as one of the greatest mining centres
in the world.
She Failed.
London, Feb. 21.—The rumor iB current in Rome that secret negotiations
wero made to induce Portugal to select
the Pope aB umpire in her dispute with
England, but they failed.
-     'The Infamous Libeller.
London, Feb. 21.—William S. Cane,
Liberal-Union member of parliumont for
Barron-in-Furness, haB written a letter
to his electors concerning the Times' forgeries and that paper's continued
attacks on Parnell. He suys he cannot
And language strong enough to express
his horror of the conspiracy, or his
opinion of the Times' conduct in lending
itself to infamous libels on the flimsiest
evidence. _____
Minister Lincoln's Condition.
London, Feb. 21.—The condition of
Abraham Lincoln has again changed for
the worse and there is great anxiety
about him.	
A Ready  Martyr.
Paris, Feb. 21.—Louise Michel, the
noted Intramigeante, has announced her
intention of going out to New Caledonia,
to nurse the lepers of whom there are
three thousand in the penal colony.
Besoued Sailors.
London, Feb. 21.—Tho arrival to-day
at Fort Talbot, Wales, of the steamer
Bay fisher is announced. The Bayfisher
landed there Captain Putnam and 8 of
the rescued crew of the British ship
Sovereign, from Cardiff for Monte Video.
The Sovereign hnd been run into by tho
steamer Higligate on Tuesday while off
Lundy Island. When picked up by the
Bayfisher, Capt. Putnam and companions had been adrift in an open boat for
thirty hours, and were much exhausted.
Altogether 12 of the Sovereign's crew
were safely landed, but the fate of a
number of them is in doubt.
The Wild West Show.
Rome, Fob. 20.—Col. Cody hns open*
ed his Wild Weat show in this city. The
attendance has been immense nnd
thousands have been excluded from
want of space. The membors of the
Diplomatic Corps nnd many other notabilities were present at tho opening.
Imperial Parliament.
London, Feb. 20.—In spite of the undoubted disposition of members of all
parties to settle down to a consideration
of the immense volume of important
business confronting them, there is a
general feeling that Parliament will be
unable to proceed with this much desired legislation until the report of the
Parnell Commission shall have been
finally disposed of. The newspapers arc
devoting columns of space to this question, nnd the Radicals, who daily de-
maud that Parliament shalleithorexon*
orate or expel the Irish members nc
cused by the It mcs, are gaining an immense number of adherents to their
contention. In the circumstances it
seems hardly possible that the Government can successfully pursue the policy
of silence which the Ministry has manifestly adopted. Justice to tne Government us well as to tho accused men demands that the matter shall be settled
as far ns the standing of the indicted
members in the Houbo is concerned, nnd
it ia the opinion of many leading members, Conservative as woll as Liberal,
that the Government is losing ground
by the delay.
DOMINION PARLIAMENT.

THE DUAL LANGUAGE.
From the secretary of the Board of
Trade, Lethbridge, N.W.T., the following communication has been received:
"At a meeting of the Board ofv Lethbridge the following resolution was
passed: Moved by J, D. Higinbothnm,
aeconded by C. C. McOaul, 'That whereas it appears from reports in the public
{tress that a petition purporting to be
rom the ratepayers of Lethbridge
against the proposal to abolish the dual
language system has been presented to
Parliament, this Board of Trade emphatically protests against such petition
being accepted as the views of the ratepayers or inhabitants of Lethbridge,
because no such public meeting ua
alleged in said petition was ever held
iu Lethbridge, and the said petition
waB secretly prepared and forwarded,
and the ratepayers of Lethbridge never
had an opportunity of voting thereon,
and that a copy of this resolution be telegraphed to Mr. Dalton McCarthy and a
copy forwarded by mail to the public
preBa.' "J

THE CHLOKINATION WORKS.
The destruction by Are, a few days
ago, of the Cariboo chlorination works,
established by the Government last
year, and iu working order but a few
months, is not only a local but a provincial loss and calamity. The very
first tests that were made in the reduction of ores by the chlorination process
at the new works showed most gratify*
ing results aud established beyond a
doubt that the Provincial authorities
had acted wisely in promoting the
scheme. The chlorination works, furnishing as they did a sure means of
profitably reducing otherwise refractory
ores, promised to give a powerful impetus to the mining industries of the famed
aud rich Cariboo district and to inaugurate a new era in quartz mining in the
Provinco generally. It iB not to be wondered at, therefore, that the greatest
regret should be felt and expressed, in
Cariboo and vicinity especially, on account of the unfortunate accident of last
week whereby the works .were totally
destroyed, and that the hopo should be
almost general that the Government
should see its way clear to re-establishing such a valuable and promising auxiliary to the development of the vast
mining wealth of the country. It has
been estimated that the cost of rebuild
ing and plncing the chlorination works
in running order again will exceed $15,-
000. We believe the genoral deBire
throughout the Province will bo that
the Government should make a sufficient
appropriation for the re-establishment
of these important, almost indispenBtble,
works at tho curliest possible date.
THE   NEWSPAPER    MAELSTROM.
The Star newspaper, of New York,
observes an exchange, is in tho hands
of a receiver, whose report shows obligations aggregating #791,000, with lesB
than $20,000 assets. Tho astonishing
fact appears that Mr. Collis P. Huntington iB the principal creditor, he having
invested in the concern since 1885 the
huge Bum of $700,000, without the slightest chance of ever getting a cent of it
back again. One of tho hardest headed
financiers and shrewdest business men
in tho United StateB he essayed to become a successful newspaper proprietor.
He who could spun tho continent with
ribs of iron, float loans amounting to
hundreds of millions, and, if necessary,
build aud operate railroads to the
mountains of the moon, signally
and lamentably failed to run a
newspaper. It may be said that
it waa open to him to omploy a competent agent to do that which he could not
accomplish for himself. Well, he tried
hard to do that very thing. He secured
the services of William Dorsheitner as
editor and manager. That gentleman
resigned the oflice of United States District Attorney to accept the position.,
An able lawyer, a keen politician and a
popular man, it was thought at the time
tliat he was just the very person to fill
the bill. The paper seemed to increase
in circulation, its advertising columiia
presented to the eyes of persons not
experts, a healthy appearance, new fast
presses were secured, and it never tired
vaunting of its success, with what truth
ite balance-sheet now shows. It went
behind at the rate of $200,000 a year.
With $700,000 Mr. Huntington could
have endowed a university; given New
York a second Astor library, and even
carried out his pet idea of killing the African slave trade, but the one thing he
could not do was to found a successful
newspaper; no, not even though hiB
reporters raked the gutters of New York,
bb they did, for sensations with which
to fill its columns. What hard-headed
Huntington failed to do, no other millionaire is likely to accomplish, in New
York or elsewhere. And yet it must be
Baid, from even a cursory observation,
that such are just tho kind of men the
world ovor who appear to have something of the same fascination for " running a newspaper" that the proverbial
and misguided moth haB for the candle.
MORMONISM CRUSHED IN ITS LAIR
Our despatches a few days ago gavo a
brief account of the signal victory won
by the so-called Gentiles over the Mormon element in the late civic elections
of Salt Lako City, the very fastneBS of
the leprous horde that have long constituted the most shameful blot ou the fair
"land of liberty." The full significance
of the defeat then sustained by the organized polygamiBtB in tho States will
bo realized from a perusal of the following remarks on the important event by
the St. Paul Pioneer Press:
For tho first time, the non-Mormon
element is in political control in Salt
Lake City. The municipal election
which was held ou Monday was acknowledged on both sides to be tlio test by
which Monnonism as a political institution must stand or fall. Ever since the
Edmunds law was passed, there has
been n steady progress of events toward
tho end that has now been reached,
That law wub tho mildest in its terms
ever brought to bear upon a community
of lawbreakers. It waB executed for
years in a spirit of tho greatest clemency. But the opportunities that it
held out to the Mormon community were
nover Improved. Sooner than give up
their peculiar institution, they trusted
to be able to retain political control "by
their authority over the consciences of
tho members of thoir association. Gradually the opon polygamlstfl wore disfranchised. It bus not, however, been eaay
to prove the fact of polygamy since the
punishment of it was assured, and no
device was left untried to retain upon
the registry rolls a sufficient number of
the faithful to hold command of the political institutions of the oity and territory. There are many members of the
Mormon body who refuse from choice
to marry more than one wife, but these,
of courso, are in sympathy with their
fellows, and were the groat reliance of
the church at the polls.   The so-called
Gentiles, on the other hand, have been
aroused and encouraged of late as they
never were before. Thoy saw a possibility, by a rigid execution of the law,
of breaking the Mormon political machine ; ana this apparently impossiblo
feat they have now performed.
The main agency in thia work was the
registration law. Under the Utah Act,
the scrutiny which this permits ia exceedingly severe. The intention of the
law is to secure the disfranchisement of
all polygamistB, and that has apparently
been done. But the flght made at the
polls was a desperate one notwithstanding ; though the non-Mormon element
won the day by a considerable majority,
and is now in political power in Salt
Lake City. The significance of this
change Ib greater than appears upon
the surface. It means the beginning of
the end of Mormon political power. It
means the certain suppression of polygamy, and the beginning of a new era for
the territory that has so long suffered
disgrace as the seat of Mormon teaching
and practice. Hitherto, everything that
was done had to be accomplished by the
application of an external power. All
the machinery of local government waB
in Mormon hands; and the measure of
local autonomy permitted by our territorial system ib bo large that a complete
reform by the action of federal power
alone was almost an impossibility.
There will be a new regime now, and
polygamy will have to deal not only with
the law of the nation and ita execution
under federal authorities, but with the
administration of local laws aud ordinances in Gentile hands. It admits of no
doubt that the victory in Salt Lake City
foreshadows the elevation .to power of
the non-Mormon element in the territory at large. When that day arrives,
the hours of polygamy are numbered.
We are making progress. For generations the Mormon "problem" remained
without a solution. Even after the Edmunds Act had been passed, it did not
seem that we were much nearer to the
end so long sought in vain. -But now
that the law has been made more rigorous and its execution in good faith is
seen to be practicable, there is no eacape
for the guilty body that has bo long defied the national authority. The decision of the supreme court in the Idaho
teat oath case and the Salt Lake City
election are two telling blows falling together. It is now settled that disfranchisement for the crime of polygamy can
and will be accomplished; and this presages the extinction of the vile doctrine
that held a great government at bay. It
ia not to be denied that the measures by
which this end is reached arc distasteful
to many of our people and foreign to the
liberal principles on which our system
of government is founded. It is a distinct misfortune that we should have
had to strain a point, or establish a precedent that might be made dangerous.
But the necessity could not be denied.
Unless we chose to permit the laws of
tho nation, eupported by the unanimous
opinion of decent people everywhere, to
be nullified openly, we had to make
them respected by any means at command. Mormonism as a political power
is in the laBt stages of dissolution. We
neither know nor care whnt muy be its
future aB a system of belief; but we cun
now rest assured that the practice of
polygamy will soon be as rare and as
speedily punished in Utah as tho crime
of bigamy is in the states of the Union.
Canada can learn a valuable lesson, it
goes almost without saying, from the
terrible and protracted struggle which
the Great Republic has had in ridding
herself of the coils of the foul monster
that, in less formidable shape, was onco
admitted to her bosom, aud tho lesson
can be very appropriately emphasized
at this time when the reptile Ib endeav
oring to worm Its slimy coils into tho
borders of our own fnir Dominion,
Senator MacDonald'a anti-Mormon bill,
a synopsis of which we published the
other day, may well receive the hearty
support of every loyal Canadian.

There has been quite an excitement
among eastern coffee dealers lately, saya
an exchange, over a spurious coffee bean
that has been shoved upon the market.
Itis composed of nothing but flour,
water and some sort of coloring matter,
but it is of tho exact size, Bhape, color
and general appearance of the genuine
article, and it requires an expert to distinguish between the one and the other.
There are now thirty-nine crematories
in various parts of the world. Italy haB
twenty-three, America has ten, while
England, Germany, France, Switzerland, Denmark, and Sweden have ono
each. In Italy there wore two cremations in 18761 the number rose to fifteen
in 1877, and in 1888 the number was 226.
Since 1876,1,177 cremations have taken
place in Italy, while the combined numbers from all other countries brings the
total only to 1,200.—iS-v.
Governor Brackett, of Massachusetts,
has just published statistics which show
that under local option law which now
prevails in that state, by which
prohibition prevails in all towns
that do not vote for license, last year
288 towns and cities voted against and
only 63 in favor of license, and he predicts that as a result of tho next election ovor four-fifths of the towns and
small citiei will refuse to license after
May 1. No prohibition law, he th1 '.s,
could be enforced in Boston and the
other large cities.
Archbishop Fabre, of Montreal, has
issued a timely circular to the clergy of
hiB diocese on the temperance question.
His grace declares the number of sa-
looas in Montreal to bo altogether out
of proportion to the needs of the inhabitants and he directs his clergy to call
upon the membors of their congregations
to unite their efforts In order to bring
about a decrease in tho number. Happily the temperance question is one
upon which good citizens of all creeds
can unite. The Archbishop's utterances
on this subject are in accord with the
opinions expressed by the most influential of the Protestant clergymen and
will certainly have groat weight with
those whose immediate responsibility It
is to deal with the licensing question.—
Ex.
The Pittsburg Dispatch tells tho following short ghost story. A party encamped near Jeannetta, Texas, witnessed a phantom lynching the othor night.
Two men dreamed of seeing men strung
up by a mob, and awaking related their
experience. As they discussed it, some
one, observing that the ground was vory
damp, put out his hand and rubbed it
lightly over the short, coarse prairie
grass, remarking as he did so that it was
the heaviest fall of dew he had ever
seen. But as he raised his hand, to the
horror of the party, the light of the fire
showed it to be dripping with what
looked moat sickeningly like* blood. On
investigation this bloody dew was found
thick and viscid all under the tree beneath which they sat. They broke
camp and departed in haste. On looking back they saw three ghoBtly corpses
dandling from the tree under which they
had been camping. Returning tho next
day they discovered no trace of the
spectres, but on talking with an old
hunter learned that three men had been
hanged on the tree for cattle stealing
away back in the fifties.
The BiBhop of Lincoln possesses the
martyr spirit. He courts rather than
shuns persecution for his alleged excessive ritualistic practices. One may differ from him in opinion, and even doubt
hiB prudence but it Ib impossible not to
admire his courage. Undismayed by
the approach of his trial now proceeding
at Lambeth palace, hia lordship preach
ed on a recent Sabbath at an elaborate
service in St. Agnes Church, Kenning-
ton Park. - The ritual observed included
all the disputed "points," and one or
two moro—Buch as incense, orientation
at the "Glorias," and kneeling in the
middle of tho Creed. Decorations upon
a somewhat extensive scale had been
undertaken, six enormous fir-trees occupying the arches of the three bays' of
the nave. An orchestra filled the rood-
loft, to which a richly-gilded screen has
lately been added, surmounted by the
usual symbols. Schubert's and Gounod's
well-known Masses formed the music.
The service was opened and concluded
with ceremonial processions, in which
the bishop and clergy were accompanied
by a retinue of acolytes, thurifers, cru-
cifers and banner-bearers. Dr. King delivered a simple expository address
based upon the Gospel for the day.—Ex.
A Labor Experiment.
The Brotherhood, of Carpenters and
Joiners propose soon to establish a sash
and door factory in Victoria on the profit sharing scheme. They hope to receive
assistance in the shape of tax exemption
from the city, and the result of the experiment will be watched with keenest
interest by all who are observing the
various phases assumed bv the labor
question, and are studying its effect on
the future of the nation.—Colonist.
The Northern Extension.
Saya tho St. Paul Pioneer Press of a
recent date: Henry C. Davis, of the
Northern Pacific Railway, returned yesterday from the Pacific coast. Speaking
of the Northern Pacific's announced new
line north from Seattle to the International boundary, Mr. Davis Bays the
surveyors ore already in the field and
that the line will run north from Seattle
across the Skagit river te Bellingham
Bay; thenco north to some point on the
Canadian Pacific, probably New Westminster or Vancouver and possibly both.
The talk of extending the line to Ship
Harbor is simply in the interest of real
estate boomers. The road will run
through a fine country, rich in timber
aud mineral resources. Notwithstanding all the talk of construction work in
the country nortii ef Seattle, Mr. Davis
says the only work under way there is
upon the Fairhaven & Southern, known
ns the Bennett road. Tliis runs from
Fairhaven, on Bellingham Bay, to the
Skagit river, and is graded north to
New WestminBter, in British Columbia.
The construction work is being actively
carried on south of the Skagit. About
thirty miles have been ironed, and the
rails for an additional hundred miles '
now en route via Cape Horn.

JOURNALISM  IN  GERMANY.
Some or the Things Which Make It Humorous for Outsider*.
An amusing side of journalism in Germany comes to light when a newspaper
is confiscated by tho Government for political reasons, says the Kew York Sun.
Tbat is, it ls amusing to people who
have seen the way the thing is done—
tbe owners or publishers of the confiscated paper don't look at tbe funny
side of it. The flrst copy of every newspaper must be sent to the "Staats Anwalt," or publio prosecutor, who Is the
censor of the press, lierr Staats Anwalt,
. with the press laws before him, carefully reads the paper while he sips his
mug of beer. His eye suddenly lights
on a passage which criticises adversely
an aotion or remark of the Emperor. He
reads it through, and rereads it, and begins to get mad.
" Donne rwetter noch ein mal," he says.
"That mtiBt be stopped."
He hurriedly draws a blue-penoll line
around tbe paragraph and steps up to
hiB telephone. He aBks central to connect him with the ohief of polioe. When
this functionary is at the other end of
the 'phone, Mr. Staats Anwalt orders
him to send a squad of police to
the printer of the paper, forbid
its further publication, and seize all
the copies thereof he oan lay his hands
on. The ohief answers " Jawohl," and
repeats the order to bis assistant. Tbe
assistant turns to his "sub" and transmits it to him, who in turn tells his
"sub" what is wanted, and finally, after
a long delay, several policemen start for
the offloer of the paper in a hired flaore.
In Germany, when tbe police are engaged in any Bpeoial work, they do not
ride In ordinary street-cars, nor do they
walk, but they must hire a flaore or a
coach. This adds secrecy and dignity to
the affair. When tbe policemen enter
the publication oflico they intimidate
the frightened foreman into handing
over all the copies be has la tbe place.
These are taken down-stairs and thrown
into the flaore. If there are very many
of them, another flaore is called. The
printers must take the objectionable
matter from the forms, and the police
make "pi" ot it.
Usually these officers hear a warrant
for the arrest of the editor. Tho German editor haB been there before, however, and on the editorial page of most
papers, right under the terms to subscribers, he keeps a name, say "Johann
Schmidt, responsible editor." And when
there is any arresting to be done the police must wreak their vengeance on
Herr Sohmidt, who in most cases Ib some
petty writer on the paper. When he Ib
in jail for writing something whioh he
didn't write the paper pays htm a good
salary and looks after his family. The
liberal newspapers and socialistic publications always keep a couple of responsible editors on tap, and when number
one Ib in the lookup the name of number
two takes hiB plaoe in the paper until,
through some trouble with tiie police,
number three begins his inning. This
functionary is called a Bits redokteur, or
■eat editor. The seat refers to hiB sojourn in a dungeon. The penalty of the
law increases with each offense, and
after the unfortunate editor haB sat several timos a new one ls appointed, who
starts in wtth the mildest punlBhment
for the first offense.
The real editor usually gets wind of
the intended visit of the polioe and secretes soveral copies of tbe publication.
When they arrtvo, and he haB road their
letter of authority, be hands over the
rest of the papers, which join their companions tn the flaore. Tbe oflicers read
to him the warrant for his arrest When
they finish the editor Bays:
"Well, meine Herren, I am only a
salaried writer here. There stands tho
responsible editor."
The polioe scowl at tbe speaker and
maroh off tbe responsible editor, It
frequently happens that the newspaper
has already been sent out and dtstrlb-'
uted throughout tbe oity, in which case
the polioe must travel around and get
hold of all the oopieB they oan. They
visit every reading room and oafe tn the
oity, and cut the obnoxious paragraph
out from the paper on tho files. In
Vienna there are seven hundred cafes,
and one oan imagine what a job tt is
to visit eaoh one and look for the unfortunate newspaper.
While the polioe are going the rounds
of the oity tho editor iB preparing a
second edition omitting tbe article
whioh provoked tho wrath ot tho Staats
Anwalt. In the center of the space this
omission naturally creates tho word
"Confiscated" ts usually inserted, A
Berlin paper, from whioh a speech had
been taken out, read ln the second
edition:
"The ipeaker mounted the platform,
and began In a clear voice,
"Confiscated—"
In Bussia publications are confiscated
with greater regularity than they aro
Issued. At tho frontier towns tho foreign newspaper mall Is regularly opened
and read. Whon the officials aomo
across something which they think
would lowor Russia ln tho estimation ot
tbe reader, to say nothing of political
utterances, tbey have a vory effective
method of doing away with It. A roller,
made for the purpose, is dipped In
printers' Ink and carefully rubbed ovor
the paragraph, after which the papor is
wrapped up and sent on to its address.
Many a Russian reader of German and
American publications has roceived bis
paper bearing the blaok mark. If tbo
officials note that some one person ts
repeatedly reoolvlng such forbidden
articles, they report the faot to St.
Petersburg, and the person standi an
unenviable show for Siberia,
Th* Obstinate Pride of Maine's Onee Pn
■nous Lumber King,
Colonol John Goddard wns a klnp
among Penobwiut lumbermen In hit-
day. An aceitluiit that occurrnd at liii
bomo, and related by tbe Dexter (Me.)
Gazette, lndicutos his unyielding nature
and obstinate pride.
One day a little son of his while playing in tho yard climbed Into a wagon,
Tiring of this ainusntiiimt, tbe ohild endeavored to titfuiii nmnli Uio ground, but
did not dare to clamber down.
Tho mother, liuarlng urles for help,
rushed out to lho resouo at tho sain'
time that Uoddnrd oamo around tin
corner of tbo stablo.
"Hold on, tlioro!" lie cried to his wlto
Then turning to the sobbing child bt
shouted: "What's the matter, young
ster?"
"Can't get down I"
"Crawl down:"
"Can't."
"Climb down, t tell youl"
"Darcsn't climb down."
Goddard reached for tbe horsewhip
vouchsafing only these words to the sp
f peal of bis wifo;
"If that young one has any ot John
Goodard's blood In him he'll got down
outof that himself."
The child, nerved to dosperatton b>
several outs from the whip, frantically
attempted to scramble down from In-*
porch, and, catching his foot in the
wheel, fell to the earth wltb a brokoti
leg
But Goddard did not flinch.

A Oruol Shook and Fond Hooea
Sadly Blighted.
Mr Endtoott Fluke bad been spend-
Ing a convivial evening with a few
choice spirits, and was returning to hiB
lodgings in that serene state of mind in
which a self-appreciative man is not unapt to be when conscious that be has
just been shining with more than wonted
brilliancy.
He waB passing one of tbe fashionable
theaters, from which a crowd bad juBt
emerged, when his pleasant meditations
wore disturbed by the sight of a rich-
ly-dreBsed young lady seemingly alone
and in great distress
As Mr. Flulto drew nearer and saw
how extremely beuuilful aho was, and
tbat she was wringing hor Lands and
weeping bitterly, evm-y fiber of bis sensitive heart was touched. Errant knight
never hastened with more alacrity to
succor distressed damsel than Mr.
Fluke did to inquire the cause of the
lady's grief
"Wbat can I dn to serve you?" be
asked, In his blandest tone, and with his'
most perfect bow—a bow on which he had
bestowed months of practice before a
full-length mirror bought expressly for
the purpose
It was some moments before the
lady's sobs would suffer her to speak.
'Oh, sirl what ahall Ido?" Bho managed to say at last.
If you willonlytellmeyourtroublo,"
replied Mr. Fluke, in a voice of ton-
dorost sympathy, "rest assured 1 shall
do all in my power to assist you."
".loh—iloli —John—" she be^an, but a
fresh paroxysm of Bobs choked her ut-
ti-ianun.
"Tray compose yourself," said Mr.
Fhilu*. soothingly, "and nonP-letome
tin' cause uf yuur distress. You may
trust mo Implicitly." nu addi'd, laying
liis Laud upon his heart by way of em*
(J ■iln is.
•A young man of my acquaintance,
sir— I was going to mention his name,
but I won't-asked me to tho Uiuoior
wlui hlm. lie wont out between the
acts, and drank too much, and got
arrested, and here I am, left alone. I've
only been a littlo while In the city, and
don't know tbo wuy home, for 1 didn't
notice the streets as we camo, trusting
ovory thing to John. Ohl I'll never
speak to tho wretch againl" And there
was an indignant flash In her eyus
which made them look brighter than
ever, Mr. Fluke thought.
"Hut you surely can toll the street
und number of your residence," hn said.
"Oil, yes; but it's a long way off, and
I've no change for ear-fare, evon If I
knew which lino to tako." And again
Bhe muttered something not very complimentary io John.
She was beginning to cry again when
Mr. Fluke hastened to assure her that
there wasn't the slightest reason for un-
oaslnoss.
"Give me your address," he said,
"und I shall leave you safely at your
door."
"How oan I over repay you, sir?" Bhe
exclaimed, in a grateful outburst.
"Tho pleasure of having served you,"
replied Mr. Fluke, with a bow that
wbii id have il-ui'.led ovon himself had tho
iookiug-glous boon there, "will be the
uuiplest of rewards."
The lady told him her address. It
wus, as she hud said, In a remote street,
hul. might bo reached, with the exception of u little distance, by one of the
city railways. Hut a street car, in Mr.
Fluke's opinion, was far beneath the
dignity of the occasion. He called a
carriage and handed the lady in.
Ills mannor was so gentle and civil that
sho could not hesituto, and when Mr.
Fluke bad taken his plaoe at her side,
after giving tho driver tho direction,
sho heaved a sigh of relief, which
proved to Mr. Fluke how fully be waB
trusted.
Mr. Fluko, as the roader may have
surmised, was a very susceptible man,
Ho had a way of falling in love at flrst
sight that had brought him no end ot
troublo. It had nearly always turned
out that tho objoot of bis hasty admiration was undor pro-engagement, or
some other obstacle Interfered. But he
had a persevering heart. If tt found its
aspirations foiled tn one quarter, it lost
no time ln turning to another. Here
was a frosh opportunity, thrown ln his
way by a lucky chance, and Mr. Fluke
determined to accept the omen.
As they rode along Mr. Fluke drew
his companion Into conversation. There
was an artless simplicity tn ber words
which quite captivated him in spite ot a
fow slips in grammar whioh would have
grated harshly on his fastidious ear had
they como from lips less protty.
At every gas-light they passed he stole
another glance at tbo pleasing faoe and
figure at bis sido, and at every glance
the prettier they looked. Poor Fluke!—
ho was vory fur gone Indeed before halt
a mtlo was passed.
"Ohl I begin to know where I am
■ow," the ladv Baid at last, after a look
out of the window, "Pleasesetmedown
hero."
"But I must Insist on seeing you quite
home, "he replied.
"That'll novor do," she answered,
"What tf Mrs, Tresham found ltout?"
Some old duenna of an aunt, no doubt,
thought Mr. Fluko, Or may be they
wanted to marry hor to that beastly
"John," But no} that should nevor bu
Mr. Fluko was quite resolved on that.
"At lout I may oall and see you some
time," he said, In hts most persuasive
mannor.
"Ohl that'll nover do, neither," she an*
swerod, still moro decidedly.
"Confound that John) It mutt be
there the trouble lies," reflected Mr
Fluke. "But there's hope yot, for hasn't
she vowed she'll nevor speak to tho dog
again?"
"At any rate you'll trust me with yout
namo," he pleaded,
"Oh, yos.   It's Klflna Cawley,"
Mr, Fluko would havo itllltnststod on
lotting ber down at her own door, bui
Elfin* was inflexible.
"It'll novor, nutter doi" she reiterated
• Mr, Fluke bnd nothing for it but t<
lot her go. First, however, he placed
a card containing bis address tn tin
hand, with a warm Injunction If slit*
ever required hii servico that she
ihould not hesitate to lot him know.
Mr, Fluko resumed his placo, and
was driven to his own door In a deep
reverie. He was about stepping out
when he saw something in the button
of the oarriage whicb glittered in the
light of a neighboring lamp Picking
it up he found it was a gold watch
handsomely studded with diamonds
Doubtless it was the same he bad noticed In Elflna's belt while entering the
carriage.
"Aha!" he thought, "I shall have a
good excuse for a call on hor to-morrow
in spite ot her persistent * It'll, nevor

Mr. Fluke, after many wakeful hours.
fell Into an uneasy sleep, from which a
loud knocking awoke bim.
"Come In!" he growled.
Two not pleasant-looking men entered.
"Is your name Fluke?" one of them
asked.
"Itis."
"Endicott Fluke'"
"Yes; why do you ask*"
"'Cause we've got business with you.'
"Hello! Spiles," cried tbe Jother
taking from a table the watch whioh
Mr. Fluke had found, and examining lt
closely, "here's the stolen goods!"
"Stolen goods!" ejaculated Mr, Fluke.

"Just bo," Mr. Spiles replied. "In

'twas rather, queer of you to glvi*

thought tho bold game waB the best
and sho'd think the watch was lost

Mr. Fluko tried to explain, but hi;
confusion was so great that Mr. Spiles-
told him he was only making matters
worse, and kindly admonished that the

Seeing no help for lt,  Mr.  Fluko
dreBsud and accompanied his captors.

fronted by a respectable-looking lady
and the fa.tr Elflna, tbe latter as pretty-
as ever tn splto of the absence ot but

"Miss Tresham," said tbe justice,

In oompany with ber beau, John Cope,

SHAKESPEARE'S  FAIRIES.
The Fairy School llrtA but One Chief, the
Itat-il of Avon.
There isono partof the "Morry Wives"
which especially seems to favor tho belief that tho piocB was originally a court
diversion. ■ Tho scene with tho false
fairies has the sportive character, and
the touch of ballet, which such courtly
pastimo preferred. It Is curious to cora-
paro tho false fairies of the "Merry
Wives" wltli tho true farlosof tho "Midsummer-Night's Droam," that mostfiilry
piece of writing in the world. Probably
tbo serious and poetic sprites are tho
earlier.
The quarto of the Dream Ib dated
1000, hut the comedy is mentioned two
years before in tbo Palladls Turn in
(1598). So, to Shakesponro's fancy, his
WolBh fairy, and the rost of bis masquerading citizens, may have been an
English rendering, almost an intentional travesty, of those Athenian fays,
moro sweet of voico' than tbu Nereides,
who departed, thu •* .'tiding over,
-'Following darkness like n dream."
The Windsor sprites began by being
prosaic onough, and tbo very slang of
the Btage comes in when they cry:
"Ud, gotus;jropt*rf(rt,
And tricking for our fairies;"
or,
• • * "wherein fat FalBtafl
Hath a great soene."
But when once tbo fairy queen of
these mimic imps appears, the poet can
not help himself, but must mako her
poetical, nay, must show hts old sympathies wtth tbe fantastic folk and knowledge of their world.
" Fairies, blnok, gray, green and white,
You moonshine rovelerB, and shades of night,
You orphan-heirs of Uxrd destiny,
Attend your odlce, 'ind your quality,
Crier Hobgoblin, make tho fairy oyes."
Orphan-heirs of fixed destiny, these
are indeed the fairies, the shadows of
tbe ancient dead, of the old classic gods,
unredeemed, who dwell in their own allotted half-world of reflected light and
double shadow, the oourt of Queen Proserpina.
"Pinch them, arms, legs, backs, shoulders, Bides and shins." This Ib their little part in the moral government of
things, the every-day or every-ntght
duty, so peasant belief held, of
" We fairies tbat do run
By the triple Hecate's team,  .
From the presence of the sun,
Following darkness like a dream."
The dread Hecate became In the middle ages the sovereign of mere moonlit
mischief.
But the pure poetry of old loyalty reasserts itself ln this oourtly command:
1 ■ Search W tndsor Castle, elvoa, within and out;
Straw good luok, ouphes, on every sacred
room;
That it may Btand till the perpetual doom,
In state aa wholesome, as ln Btate 'tis at,
Worthy the ownor, and the owner fl
•       **••>*•
And Honl toil gut mal ypenss, write,
In emerald tufts, flowen purple, blue and
white."
DThen the poetry vanishes with the
fays, wbo brought It, as only to Shakespeare they oould bring it, for he, too,
likoCorneillo, had his lutin, his brownie,
who never deserted him when he sang
of the border of the two worlds, and the
realms between nlghtandlight, between
ghosts and men.
The Bttriok Shepherd, in a burst of
confidence, once assured Sir Walter
Scott, "Awm the ohief of a far higher
sohule than yours, the Mountain and
Fairy sohule."
But the good Shepherd overestimated
himself. The Fairy sohool hath but
one ohief-Shakespeare-and Herrtok

of the conference is the discussion of

League was organized has been accomplished, and it is thought the objects
sought to be attained both by mechanics
and laborers will be more easily accom-
Slished through a Trades and Labor
ouncil, for the reason that the latter
can adopt a wider platform and take in
all questions of moment relating to
trades and labor. A couucil of this kind
would also have a stronger backing and
fuller recognition, as it would apeak

The Bar Protested.
A well attended meeting of the members of the legal profession in this city
was held yesterday at tbe offices of Armstrong "& Eckstein, when it was resolved
to protest against the change suggested
by the Vancouver bar relative to defences to actions upon foreign judgments.
Ttie proposed change would place great
difficulty in the way of any eastern
creditor recovering from his debtor who
might choose to come to this Province to
reside. Telegrams, followed by a formal
protest of the bar of this city, were sent
yesterday to the Attorney-General and
Mr. Cunningham, and to-day the former
gentleman Bent the following telegraphic
reply: " No such law is being introduced, by which it is plain the Government are not in accord with the suggested change.

No Trace of the Burglars.
The burglars who robbed Mr. Lord's
store of $260 worth of watches and jewelry, yesterday morning, have gone and
left no trace behind. Tli/*! police have
thoroughly searched the city and every
nook where they might possibly bide
themselves, but without success. It is
now thought that the burglars either
crossed the river aud made their way to
the American Bide or went to Vancouver, where they may now be in hiding.
Tlie Vancouver and Victoria police
have been notified of the robbery
and the class of goods stolen, so
it will be difficult if not impossible for
the men to dispose of tlie articles jn
either city. Their only chance would
be on the United States side of the line,
and it is probable they will make their
way to tbo Sound with the least possible
delay.

The Sapperton Sohool,
When the Sapperton school house was
built somo 18 months ago it was only intended to accomadate about 20 pupils.
At present from 40 to 46 scholars attend
the school daily, the average attendance since the first of the year being 37
daily. The building, it is easy to see, is
far too small for the number of pupils in
attendance; the children are huddled
together far more cloBely than should be
the case, and consequently on a cold
day the room cannot be otherwise
than stuffy and unhealthy, and it
is impossible to ventilate thorougly
without endangering the lives of
the children. The school population
at Sapperton is increasing very rapidly,
and there ia a number of children anxious to attend but for whom there is no
room. Tbe school should either be enlarged or a large new one buitt, and au
addition to the play ground, which is
very small, is also necessary.

THE NOBTH ARM BRIDGES.
The Damaged Structure to be Unbuilt
Without Delay by the Old
Contractor*.
The break in the North Arm bridge,
caused by the ice in December last, is to
be repaired immediately by the Sau Francisco Bridge Co., the original contractors. That tlie work will be made complete and thoroughly substantial this
time is guaranteed liy the fact that Mr.
Balfour, superintendent of Canadian Pacific Railway bridges, will oversee the
re-construct ion. Mr. Balfour has the
reputation of beingoneof the beBt bridge
builders on the continent, and his position on the C. P. R, bears thiB out. On
being requested to superintend the job
Mr. Balfour accepted it only on the condition that he should have supremo control of the work, etc., from beginning to
end. This wus readily agreed to, and
the work will be commenced under his
direction as soon as tho weather will permit.
PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.
[From Our Own Correspondent.]
Thursday's   Proceedings.
Mr. Speaker took the chair 2 p. m.
Prayers by the Rt, Rev. Bishop
Cridge.
Col. Baker asked permission to withdraw the petition of the Kootenay Railway Companies on the ground that as
the railways were for the benefit of
Canada the question of chartering thein
was one of Dominion rights.
Hon. Mr. Beaven Bald that he opposed
the withdrawal of these bills and he
failed to understand how the insertion of
a clause in an act that if a railway was
for the general benefit of Canada the
Dominion Government Bhould have full
authority over the same as to granting a
charter. He could not see the justice
of such an assumption on the part of the
Dominion Government. He doubted if
that government had auy right to interfere in the present case or the chartering of railways to be operated in this
province.
Cot. Baker read several extracts from
the Nortii America Act relating to tho
point in question and said that under
tliat act the Dominion Government lind
power to veto any railway bill on which
it deemed such action advisable,
Hon. John Robson agreed in genoral
principles in this mattor with Hon. Mr.
Beaven, but what was wanted at the
present time was the particular point on
which the member for Kootenay wished
the petition withdrawn.
Col. Baker said that as thoae railways
would extend beyond the limits of this
province and connect with foreign railways they were certainly for the general
benefit of Canada, The railways would
also go beyond the jurisdiction of the
authority of the legislature of this pro*
vince. The charters granted under such
circumstances would be of little value to
the promoters of the railways.
Mr. Orr said that the legislature ought
to see that their just rights were jealously maintained in this as well as all
other matters. He thought that no railway should be allowed to be constructed
in the province by the authority of the
Dominion Government without the consent of the Provincial Legislature of
British Columbia-
Mr. Speaker said the bills at present
fere contrary to the British North
America Act.
Hon. Mr. Beaven said it wbb monstrous to put the construction on the law
that was being put upon it by'his opponents. He cited the St. Catharines,
Ont., case and stated that it was a well
known fact that the premier of Ontario
who had given a ruling on a question
very similar to this, knew more about,
constitutional law than the premier of
Canada himself. It was absurd to say
that everything not mentioned in the
act belonged to the Dominion of Canada.
We ought to stand up and defend our
rights and not let the right to charter
railways in our own province be taken
out of our hands.
Hon. John Robson said that subsection three of the act did not touch on
the point at all in reference to the charter aought. It certainly would be a
great abuse if the Dominion Government did have tho power to sweep away
all rights of the Provincial Legislature
to regulate Provincial railways. But
the case was altogether different. The
railways now aBkmg charter would be
part of a foreign svstem and they had no
right to insist on chartering those railways.   Leave granted to withdraw.
The petitions of the Vancouver Water
Works, Okanagon and Kootenay Railway Co., G. de Wolf and W. Crickinay,
E. Otcott re lease of Yale Creek and
Hills bar for mining purposes, were read
and received.
Mr. Orr presented a petition 'from a
number of inhabitants of the City of
Vancouver asking incorporation as the
"Britisli Columbia Jockey Club."
Mr. Speaker informed Mr. Orr that as
tliis was the last day for receiving such
Editions thiB one would lie read at once,
teceived.
Mr, Martin presented the report of
the committee on standing orders and
private bills and stated the rules had
been complied with in the bills of the
Nelson and Kootenay Lake Railway Co.,
National Electric Tramway Co,, the
Fraser River Gold Gravel Syndicate Co.,
the Nanaimo Telephone Co., and the
Pacific Coast Fire Insurance Co. Report received and directed to be printed
in the votes and proceedings.
Mr, Orr asked leave to introduce a bill
to amalgamate the Vancouver Street
Railway Co. and the Vancouver Electric
Lighting and Motor Co. Bill read a
first time and second reading set for
Monday next.
Col. Baker asked leave to introduce a
bill to incorporate the Nelson and Koot*
enay Lake Railway Co. Bill read a first
time and referred to the committee on
Railways.
Mr. Cunningham asked to leave to introduce a bill to incorporate the Fraser
River Gold Gravels Syndicate Co, Bill
read a first time and referred to the
committee on standing orders and pri
vate bills.
Air. Duck asked leave to introduce a
bill regaading the National Electric
Tramway Co. Bill read a flrst time and
referred to the committee on standing
ordera and private bills,
Mr. Anderson asked lenve to introduce
a bill to amend the "Broad Tires Act
Allowed to stand.
Mr. Semlin asked leave to introduce a
bill re theAshcroft and Cariboo Railway,
but the bill was withheld until tlie report of the private bills and standing
orders committee iB printed.
Mr. Ladner moved, seconded by Mr.
Semlin, the following resolution: That
the House resolve itself into committee
of the whole to consider the following
resolution:
That it is desirable that township or
district municipalities should be empowered to increase the flhm payable for
a retail license under sub-section 1 of
section 1GS of the Municipal Act, 1889,
to two hundred dollars por annum.
House went into the committee of the
wholo on the resolution, Mr. Duck in
the chair. Committee rose and reported
resolution.   Adoflted.
Mr. Beaven moved, seconded by Mr.
Semlin, the following resolution:
That a respectful address be presented
to His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor
requesting liim to cnuse to be sent down
to the House copies of all ordere-in-
councit, reports, papers, and documents
relating to the application to theGovem-
inent, or nny of its members, by "The
Victoria, Saanich nnd New Westminster
Railway Company," for aid in the construction of the said railway.
Mr. Thomson moved, seconded by Mr.
Croft, the following resolution : That
the House resolve itself into a Committee of the whole to consider the
following resolution:
That it iB desirable to grant municipalities the privilege of increasing retail
liquor licenses to four hundred dollars a
year.
House went into committee on the
resolution, Mr. Cunningham in the
chair.   Report adopted.
The Municipal Act amendments were
next taken up and occupied the time of
the House lor an hour or two. The
discussion was lively and the Speaker
took strong exception to the manner in
whieh the amendments had been intro-
Suced and recommending their with*
rawal and introduction in proper order
also to several members for their remiss*
ness in not addressing the chair when
speaking. The matter under discussion
was advanced a stage.

modern times, was in the city on Monday and went over to Vancouver yesterday morning in pursuit of an embezzler

recently endangered by a friend oi Jesse
James, the desperado whom he killed.
Ford is a square built man of about 36
years old, grey eyes, of nervous temper-
ment and pleasing manner. Nothing
but his quick penetrating glance would
ever lead a person to suppose that he
waa capable of taking a human life. In
reply to a question from an acquaintance as to his standing with the dead
train robbers' friends, he said that the
climate occasionally becamo very tropical and that he had experienced several
narrow escapes from death at the hands
of James'  old comrades.—'Wednesday's
