said if this was true the contention by

A Long Fight.
San Francisco, Fob. 28.- The longest
prize fight that has ever taken place on
the Pacific coast occurred at the California Athletic Club last night.' The
contestants were Danny Needham, of
St. Paul, and Patsy Kerringan, of Boston, light weights, The purse offered
was $1,500. The flght commenced at 8:
40 and lasted till after 3 o'clock thiB
morning, 99rounds being fought. There
were only 4 rounds of real hard fighting.
At the conclusion of the second round
Kerrigan had Needham all but beaten,
but failed to take advantage in succeeding rounds. The battle was scientifically contested front the start. After the
99th round had been gone through the
referee announced that the hands of
both men were disabled, and they no
longer could do any damage to each
other. He therefore declared the fight
off, the compensation being left to the
board of directors,
The Mew China Line.
New Yobk, Feb, 28.—The Herald this
morning referring the Pacific Mail Steamship Co.'s proposal to the Northern Pacific Railroad Co. to establish a line of
steamers from Tacoma to China, with
the view of obtaining some business
which now goes to the Canadian Pacific,
says; "If the deal goes into effect it
wul take one or more of the boats to
form the Northern Pacific nucleus for
the new line. The Canadian Pacific's
Vancouver line was started about two
yeara ago with five ships, three of which
are now running."
The Mew Line.
New Yobk, Feb. 28.—One of the main
objects of the deal between the Northern
Pacific and tho Pacific Mail is to go into
more active competition with the Canadian Pacific subsidized line. Unofficially there had been negotiations ponding
betweeen the oflicers of the Pacific Mail
and Northern Paoifio Railway Co., looking toward aome favorable arrangement,
and some of the officials at Tacoma have
been informally sounded as to what
they would be willing to do in the event
of the carrying out of this plan. Ro far
as can be ascertained the co-operation
of the Northern Pacific officials in tlie
scheme is simply a question of terms,
and since they are thus willing to join
in the matter, they are not apt to pro*
Sose or insist upon such torma as would
efeat the carrying out of the proposition. What the Occidental and Oriental S. 8. Co. would do In the event of
the Pacific Mall withdrawing one of Its
steamers from the Ban Francisco route
has not yet been considered, but the
Pacific Mail officials here believe that
harmonious relations will exist, and
that no trouble will enBue by reason of
the cutting down of that branch of their
service.      	
Gone to Death, i
San Fhancisco, Feb. 28.—Among the
passengers of the steamer Australia
which sailed from Honolulu at noon today, was Miss Amy Fowler, otherwise
known as Sister Gertude, who goes to
care for the lepers at Malokai.
Mo Foreign Labor.
Ottawa, Feb. 28.—A large number of
vessel men have petitioned Parliament
to pass a law prohibiting the employment of any except British subjects as
masters, mates or engineers on Canadian
inland waters. They nave also petitioned
that foreigners be prohibited from entering Canada under contract to perform
labor. This is iu retaliation for the
United States' contract labor law.

The White Child  Story.
The prominence which has been
given of late to Mr. Fred Villiers* story
of n white child being held captive
among the Canadian Blackfeet Indians,
aud which was incidentally referred to
iu the House of Commons the othor day,
has been followed by the receipt of another report ou the subject from Mr.
Begg, Government agent at the Blackfoot reserve. It appears tliat tho statement of the child's white parentage
rcstB entirely upon diluted hearsay.
Mr. Begg can find fifty Indians to testify
that the girl was born on the reserve,
of Dog Child's squaw. Father Doucette
believes that he haptized the child when
a few months old on the reserve us tho
child of thia squaw, and the Indiuns had
come from the States six months before
the child was born. Interpreter L'Heu*
reux, who has beon with the Blackfeet
thirty years, says that the Indians
brought no white child from the States
and that this ono was born on the reserve.
Farm Instructor Wheatley, of the lower
reserve, remembers seeing this child
when a few months old on the reserve.
The squaw's mother was a half-breed,
and she herself ia much lighter in complexion than many ot her tribe. The
child, moreover, has the squaw's features. About three years ago thiB same
squaw had a child aB light in complexion
as the one in dispute, about whose maternity there coiild be no doubt, as Mr.
Begg saw this child when only a day
old. Dog Child claims the child is his
and has a great affection^ for her, ab he
has for all the children by his squaw,
but there are those who think they see
reasons to differ from him. Of the fact
that the child's mother Ib a squaw aud
that the child was born on the reserve
there cannot, he thinks, be any reasonable donbt. Mr. Begg personally knows
nothing of tho chllain question. He
has done his best to get at the truth of
the matter, and his report Is based upon
the best information he can gather.

Scouler, followed by a scripture reading
by Bev. T. Hodden, and hymns No.
633, and 736, when the report for the
report for the year was read by the
secretary, Rev, J. H. White, and was,
briefly, as follows: .
After expressing their gratitude te
Almighty God for the moasure of success
which hns attended their efforts, nnd
the increasing interest manifested in
the work, the committeo state that at
the last aim ani meoting Rev. R. Jamie-
son, who hud tilled the position of secretary almost ever since the inception of
the society, hud felt compelled to resign, owing to increasing years. The
resignation had been reluctantly accepted by the committee aud at a meeting held March 26th, 1880, the following resolution, moved by Mr. J. B.
Clute, Br., seconded by Mr, C.G. Major,
had been unanimously carried:
"That the committee desire to express
their sincere appreciation of the long
and valuable service rendered to tho
society by thu retiring secretary. Rev.
R. JamleBon. They recognize the fact
that tbe efficient work of the society in
this Province has been largely owing to
his untiring devotion to its interests, and
hope that he may be spared to aid, by
his counsel and experience, its future
operations."
The parent society in Toronto shortly
afterward fittingly recognized his distinguished services by presenting him
witli a certificate of life membership.
It is perhaps worthy of note that this
branch has the honor of including among
its members tho only two life members
in British Columbia, the other being the
worthy President, W. J. Armstrong.
The committee has to mourn the re
moval by death of one of its younger
members, Captain C. N. McNaughten,
who passed away after a long and painful illness, borne with Christian fortitude.
Among the notable events of the year
Ib mentioned the disastrous fire which
occurred In this city on the morning of
December 27,1889. in which the entire
stock on hand of tho society, valued at
$660, wub destroyed, Fortunately the
loss was partially covered by insurance,
amounting to (400, but the embarrassment arising from the destruction of the
depository, and the unavoidable delay
in securing now books has been seriously
felt, New gooda to the value of $160 are
on the way and their arrival Ib expected
dally. The atock will be further increased
Immediately by an additional order of
$100 worth, Tho headquarters of the
society for tho futuro will be tho new
and commodious store of D, Lyal & Co.
It may not be out of place to call the
attention of those desiring Bibles, oither
for personal use or for distribution, to
the fact that the society furnishes them
in all languages and in all varities of
binding, at a price that only pays the
cost of printing, not even freight charges
being added.
The report states that it was thought
best not to solicit subscriptions at the
meeting, but tbe lady collectors, whoBe
unselfish labors in the past had so materially increased the funds of the society, would make a thorough canvass
of the city, and it was confidently expected, in view of the circumstances,
and the large growth of the oity in
wealth and population during the past
year, that the response to the appeals
of the collectors would be more liberal
and hearty than ever before, the hope
being expressed that the contribution '
for this year might reach the sum of
1500,
Owing to a loss of the records, only au
approximate statement could be given of
the number and value of the books sold
and given away during the year. It
.was estimated that sales amounted to
$25 and donations to $16, the latter being
almost entirely for the use of prisoners
iu the provincial penitentiary and gaol.
The treasurer's report was submitted
bb part of the annual report, and is as
follows:

In conclusion the report earnestly
commends the report of the society to
the sympathy and prayers of all, and
shows the various ways in which each
may "assist this glorious work," by individual consecration, byprecept and
example, by personal effort, by giving
of pecuniary means, and by earnest
prayer.
Rev. M.Pedly, of Vancouver, moved
the adoption of the report in an earnest
and eloquent address, in whicb he showed that the object of the society was to
put the bible in the hands of every soul
on the earth's circumference, and urged
everyone to assist in such a noble undertaking.
The motion was seconded by Mr. J. C.
Brydone.Jack, in a few appropriate remarks, and unanimously carried.
Upon nomination by Rev, J. H.
White, seconded by Mr. H. Burr, the
following executive committee was unanimously elected for the ensuing year:
President, W. J. Armstrong; vice-presidents, all ministers of the gospel that
are members of the society; treasurer,
C, G. Major, Esq.; secretary, Rev. T.
Hadden; committee: Messra. J.C.Brown,
J.Cunninghnm, C.J. Robson, J.S. Clute,
Br., W. N. Draper, J. B. Cherry, A.
Cross, H. Burr, Alex. McDougall, G. E.
Corbould, Wm. Holden, W. R. King
and J. Turnbull.
On the same motion the following
lady collectors were elected for 1800:
Mesdaines W. J. Armstrong, Keary,
Hill, Milligan, White, Patchley, W. W.
Garden, H. Gordon, H. Wilson, R. McPherson and Misses Pcck.Major, Clarke,
Gussie DeBeck, Mathers, H. Fraser and
N.Nruser.The collectors will make their
round during the month of March.
A hearty vote of thanks, moved by
Mr. W. R. King and seconded
by Mr, W. B. Townsend, was
conveyed by the meeting to the
officers and collectors of last year, and
to Rev. Mr. Pedley, of Vancouver, for
his presence and assistance, and the
meeting came to a close with the doxolgy
and benediction.
A REAL GHOST.
Victoria   Haa   a   Genuine   Apparition-
Policemen   Bee It.
The neighborhood of Victoria has
never been noted for ghosts, hobgoblins
or other phantoms of the night, but that
the disembodied spirits of those who
have gone before, haunt at times the
places once frequented in life, Ib firmly
believed by many, and there is no reason
to suppose that this city should be entirely free from supernatural visitors.
A ghost it is alleged, has been Been
here, and although It did uot appear iu
the cerements of the tomb, and did not
gibe and mow with hideous gestures,
as all well regulated ghosts are supposed
to do, no reason has yet been put forward that the midnight visitor did not
come from the realm of spirits. It was
of an
ORIGINAL  KIND,
and had none of the time worn style
about it. The Victorian ghost which
appeared to officers Hawton and Hoosen
laBt night was an exceedingly merry
ghost. It danced and cut pigeon wings
and double shuffles like a veritable disciple of Momus. In fact its actions were
so antagonistic to all preconceived notions of ghosts that the two night guardians of the public did not seem te consider his ghostship a terrifying sight but
rather an amusing feature, which served
to render less monotonous the weary
watchee of the night.   The particular
?;host Btory relating to this latest visitor
rom the
WOULD OF SHADES
is as follows: Last evening police officer Hawton was walking calmly up Fort
streot, when he saw distinctly shadowed on a wall tho imago of a man. He
thought at first that it was his own
shadow, but he Boon saw it could not be,
for the shade commenced to dance and
wave ItB arms about in a most grotesque
fashion. Officer Hawton then thought
that it was a reflection of some one else,
and looked around to see who the midnight dancer could be, but he was alone
ou tho cold and dreary rtreet. The apparition kept up its silent dance, and
although not a nervous man, Officer
Hawton began to believe that he was
looking at a denizen of another world.
He walked toward the figure and to his
surprise
IT VANISHED INSTANTLV.
To say that the gallant police officer
was surprised feebly expresses lt. Fear,
though, had no lodgment beneath that
blue coat. The officer drew back, and
again tho nimble footed ghost was seen
deftly beating out a ghostly measure
with his goblin feet. Officer Hawton
left his ghostship dancing, and nasiing
down Fort Btreet met Officer Hoosan,
and with him returned to tho scene of
the ghost's capers. Remarkable to relate the shadow was Btill there, and as
though desirouB of pleasing its audience
of two, tho quickness of its steps wbb
accelerated and the gestures of its hands
were made more extravagantly. Botb
officers were highly amused at the comical antics of the shade, and burst into a
loud laugh. A moment more and it was
gone. Tho police officers are sure thnt
what they saw waa something not belonging to this earth, though fust what
it was they don't pretend to know. It
may have been the result of an ingenious
device of mirrors and lights, but, then
again it may not. There is nothing
forthcoming to show that it was not a
bona fide ghost, and Victoria may claim
a haunted street as anothor attraction,
aud thus make jealous the cities of the
mainland, which are not tho proud possessors of u spook.--Times.

THE NORTH ARM SUBSIDY.
It will be altogether too bad if the
Council and those enterprising and patriotic business men who have been subscribing should go back on their record,
should become weary in well-doing, so
to speak, und allow tbe steamor service
between this city and the thriving North
Arm settlement to lapse for want of the
subsidy which 1ms been kept going for
nearly a year past by tho very creditable joint effort of the Council and the
citizens. From remarks made in the
Council meeting laBt Monday evening
It would appear that a termination of
the subsidy was anticipated, until such
time, at least, as the Dominion authorities can be prevailed upon to do their
duty in the matter. The Dominion
Government should certainly be urged,
aB it has been in the past, unsuccessfully, to assume thiB necessary subsidy
nnd relieve municipal and private enterprise of the responsibility and cost;
but, until this is done, it is to be hoped,
in the interest of the important trade
relations between this city and the
North Arm—which might be irretrievably damaged and diverted to other
channels by the cutting off of communication for even a short time—that the
Council nnd the citizens will still nobly
remain in the breach and guarantee the
service as before. The letter of Mr.
Wm. McColl, one of our city merchants,
which we published on Wednesday, on
this subject, has the true ring, and we
would commend the sentiments therein contained to every business man interested in the continued growth and
prosperity of the Royal City. We cannot afford, at any reasonable sacrifice,
to allow our trade relations with such
an important district as the North Arm
to suffer, or go by the board altogether.
Every citizen has an interest, rather,
in extending and strengthening these
relations, with not only one, but each of
the prosperous and growing settlements
of Westminster District. Westminster
City occupies the proud and advantageous position of being the natural
trade centre for the most splendid and
promising cordon of agricultural and
industrial settlements that tho sun ever
shown upon, and these advantages
should not be lightly estimated nor
easily surrendered.
THE BEGGARS' EMPEROR.
The German Emperor's now famous
rescript, calling a European conference
to study the labor question and devise
means for the general amelioration of
the laboring classes in the chief industrial countries of Europe, has earned
for the young "war lord" of the Teutons
the .above affectionate, if not very
euphonious, title. There may be something of derision as well as loyal enthusiasm in the appellation as applied by
the socialistic subjects of His Imperial
Majesty. Be that as it may, Wilhelm
II. "doesn't cnre a continental." His
own words are: "To earn the gratitude
" of the workingmen is not my motive,
" but it is to see justice done. If I sat-
" iafy my own conscience on that point,
" I shall be indifferent to ingratitude
" here or there. If the souls of the
" workingmen are bo hardened that they
" cannot properly respond to what I
" shall endeavor to do for them, it must
" be due to their degradation and misery,
11 and that affords all the more reason
" for coining to theirrescue." It would
appear that the young German Emperor
has lately got an insight into the abuses,
the hardship and the misery among the
laboring classes in his own land, and,
with a promptness and a zeal that does
him credit, has set himself the rather
formidable but worthy task of bringing
about means to solve, if possible, the
great labor problem in all its phases, so
far, at least, aB civilized Europe is concerned. As the flrst step in thia undertaking the Emperor sent tothe Imperial
Chancellor, Bismarck, early in the present month, a rescript or decree, in
which, after referring te his desire to
ameliorate the condition of the German
working classes, he expressed the desire
that the ambassadors and ministers of
France, Great Britain, Belgium aud
Switzerland, accredited to the German
court, be officially asked whether their
respective Governments would be disposed to an international understanding
with Germany with a view to considering the possibility of meeting the needs
and wishes of the workmen, which have
been brought to light in the strikes of
the last few years, and iu other ways.
As soon as the Emperor's proposition
has been accepted in principle the Chancellor will be empowered to invite the
Governments of all the nations which
take alike intereat in the labor question,
including America presumably, to a conference for the purpose of discussing
that question.
As might be expected, u proposition
for a great international conference to
solve the labor problem, coming from
such an unexpected quarter, has proved
more than a nine days' wonder, and
elicited no end of comment, favorable
and adverse; but, while unworthy motives, such as the making of political
capital against the Socialists (which, if
such was the object, the recent German
elections have shown to be a failure),
are attributed by some, the great majority of unbiased, outside critics, represented in the English and American
press, agree In giving the young Emporor credit for sincerity, even when
questioning his judgment or the probable success of hiB labor conference
scheme to attain the objects sought.
Ab an adverse critic of the scheme we
have a great French political economist,
M. Le Koy Beaulieu, who, with true
French fervor, perhaps stimulated by
the recollection that the Emperor William Ib a German, says:
"I regard the propOBal of the German
Emperor as impracticable, dangerous
und In every way ill-advised. William
is a young man with only a superficial
knowledge of the vast question he has
undertaken to deal with. Perhaps, in
his ignorance he haB confidence in the
remedy he suggests, but you may be
sure Prince Bismarck, who is pulling
the wires behind the throne, is simply
manoeuvring to catch the votes of his
Socialistic enemies in the approaching
elections. But that is precisely where
the measure is dangerous, for in thus
openly recognizing the Socialists, he is
unwittingly strengthening their cause,
if not immediately, at least in the not
far distant future. Then, as to the
practicability of the scheme, it needs
only a moment's consideration to see
that it Ib utterly absurd. A thousand
objections arise on every hand. National
pride, intolerance, radical difference io
resources and in the fertility of the soil,
differences in the characteristics of the
people, difference in climate, system of
government, taxes, customs, 'military
organization, general intelligence, all
these things have a direct bearing upon
the condition of the laboring class. You
might sb well try to establish uniformity
as regards height or language or the
color of the eyes as uniformity in the
time and manner in which the various
nations will do their work. One thing
is certain—of two peoples the one which
lias the poorer soil, the least energy and
inferior intelligence and aptitude, will
always have to work longer and harder
than the other to accomplish the samo
result. No legislation can ever chango
that. No international congreBB can ever
make an Italian do bb inucb work in an
hour ub an American, nor a German
workman hope to turn out in a given
time a product which will possess the
artistic excellence of a French article,
for the Frenchman Is essentially of an
artistic nature. England has a distinct
advantage over the continental nations
in having no enormous standing army.
She has the more men left to do her
work. What laws can be made to balance this superiority which she enjoys
in the labor markets of the world? Italy
haB no iron, no coal; how then can she
hope to compete with the manufacturers in countries possessing both? No
the Idea Ib simply preposterous,"
The Frenchman is rather voluminous in his objections, it may atrike anyone ; besides he doesn't place the matter quite fairly as to the young Emperor's relation aud attitude tothe question. He says "William is a young man
" with only a superficial knowledge of
" the vast question he has undertaken
" to deal with. Perhaps, in his ignor-
" ance, he has confidence in the remedy
•' he suggests," etc, It will be
noticed however, that William does
not suggest any definite remedy,
but modestly leaves that to the
assembled wisdom of the conference,
which he ia merely taking the initiative
in endeavoring to bring about, and
which, if it should be successfully convoked, and include representatives from
every nation of the civilized world, is
almost certaiu to achieve important
results, M. Le Roy Beaulieu to the con
trary notwithstanding. As holding this
view, and approving of the proposed
conference, no less a personage and an
authority than Sir Charles Dilke can be
quoted as saying:
"I am not disposed to regard the Emperor William's action as merely an
electoral device. The Germans have
long been divided into two classes—one
composed of ranting, red-handed socialists in the worst sense of the word, the
other of Btate socialists who have at
heart the good of the toiling thousands
and who favor such legislation as will
bring that good about by peaceful and
lawful means. The proposal for an international labor conference would seem
to emanate from the latter class. Very
possibly the German Government has
been influenced in making thiB proposal
bv the turbulent, dissatisfied condition
of the laboring classes, but that ia the
history of all reforms aud in no way prevents the fact that, the step once taken
for whatever reason, the masses will
benefit bv the advance. If the English
Government is invited to send official
delegates to such an international congreBB the invitation will probably be accepted. England has nothing to lose by
taking part in such a congress. Already
her hours of labor are shorter than those
on the Continent, and her constant tendency is to establish the forty-five hours
a week system at present in vogue in
Australia. The eight hour law for
miners comes up before Parliament this
session, and is very likely to be passed.
England will, doubtless, look favorably
upon Germany's proposition whenever
it is made."
The Weekly Dispatch, a London journal, holds quite opposite views to M.
Le Roy Beaulieu as to the possibilities
of concerted action on the labor question by the civilized European nations,
in fact, argues that that is just what
Ib wanted and the lack of such
action has heen hindering labor
reforms in the past. "The rescript of
" the German Emperor frankly con
" cedes," Bays tlie Dispatch, "the main
'' contention of the Socialists, that in the
" modern industrial system the laboring
" class is not rising like the other class-
" ob, nor getting out of the growth of
11 the world's wealth the share of bene-
" fit it has ' a right to expect.
" His Majlsty recognizes what wc
" have persistently pointed out
" — namely, that one great iliffi-
" culty in the way of social reform-
" era is the want of united action be-
" tweeii the civilized nations of Europe.
" If we iu England do anything to better
" the working mau In England, thon the
" capitalists of other countries who _
" nothing for hlm get a' pull' over our
" manufacturers who have made sacri-
" flees of profit iu order to lighten tho
" lot of toil. The strongest argument
" against an eight-hour system, for
" example, is to the effect that on the
" Continent the employers, by working
" their men twelve hours, would
" take their English competitors at a
" disadvantage. The German Emperor
" proposes that a conference of the in-
" dustrial powers should meet at Berlin
" to study the labor question, and devise
" such remedies aa governments can ap-
'' ply for making life better and brighter
" for the working class all over Europe.
<■ # # t For the first time in Euro-
" pean history we have distinct rccogni-
" tion given to the truth that the Inter-
" csts of labor are quite bb worthy of the
" attention of sovereigns and diplomat-
" ists as the interests of dynasties and
" the intrigues of courts and chancel-
" leries, The young German fire-eater
" is the last personage in the world
" whom we should have expected to
recognize thiB fact. As we have been
among his most faithful critics, it is
only bare justice to say that he has
suddenly put himself in away of
greater honor and public usefulness
than most sovereigns of onr time,"
The despatches stated the other day
that tho British Government had accepted the invitation to participate in
the proposed international labor conference at Berlin; it was also stated that
the Berne conference—a separate project of Switzerland's—had been abandoned, so it may be asiiumcd that that
country will take a hand In the larger
scheme.   Belgium's acquiescence is al
most certain, and even France may fall
into line, and other governments that
may be asked will also send delegates.
No definite date for the conference has
•yet transpired, but the prospects are
rather hopeful for the young German
Emperor's enthusiastic and benevolent
scheme materializing before long. Proving his sincerity and earnestness in the
work, William is improving the interval,
as the despatches have stated, by industriously and intelligently gathering information from all possible sources to
bring to bear upon the labor question
with a view to a wise and satisfactory
solution. To this end the German legations in England and the United States
have been instructed to make a study of
the labor situation. in those countries
and piepare and forward exhaustive reports. It will be generally conceded,
we think, from all the evidence, that
the "young German fire-eater,"
showing himself thoroughly in earnest
in this labor reform matter, and by the
grandness and boldness of his scheme,
and the intelligence and determination
displayed In its inception and furtherance, is earning the deserved admiration
and regard of the civilized world. One
thing Ib certain, that the conference itself, if it is successfully convoked according to the lines laid down, will be
universally considered as one of the most
important events of the age, and its
deliberations will be watched with the
most intense interest by the wide world.
Speaking of the great speech delivered by Hon. David Mills on the dual
language question, the Montreal Gazette
says: "By far the best speech of the
debate was that of Mr. Mills, of Both-
well, aunost scholarly and elaborate presentation of the whole subject, which
held the earnest attention of the House
and won the highest compliments from
both sides for its liberality, style and
sustained logic.

A little faoe to look at,
A little fnco to kiss,
Is there any thing, I wonder,
That's halt so aweet as this
A little cheek to dimple,
When srnilea begin to grow,
A little mouth betraying
Which way the kisses ga
A Blender little ringlet,
A rosy little ear,
< A Uttle chin to quiver
When falls tbe little tear.
A little hand so fragile,
All through the niglit to hold,
Two little foot so tender.
To tuok ln from tho cold.
Two eyes to watch the sunbeam
That with the shadow plays—
A darling llttlu baby
To kiss and lovo always.

DURING THE WAB.
Two Inoidents in the Career of an
Expreea Messenger.
In the First the Koliliera Oot llmlly 1-oft.
mad In tlie Second We Game Out
Best In ft Trial of Shoot-
lag-Irons.
Even in these days of peace, with
every money-handler armed fur defense
and surrounded by every safeguard,
bunks are "touched," stages hold up,
express cars robbed, and the highway
robber and the horso thiof have no complaints of look of business. This being
tbe case now, yon can Imagine tbe stato
of affairs during the war, even though
you were not a living witness. Along
about 1803 the bad men of the times
reaped a constant harvest. Money was
abundant, every day full of excitement,
and embezzlers and absconders outnumbered honest men. And, too, banks,
express com pun ies and other big money-
handlers wero green to many of the
tricks and schemes, and tho idea of buying a revolver for un express messenger
outof company funds would have been
voted down inatimtop. He must ami
himself, and If ho pulled through ho
was a good fellow. If he didn't, it was
looked upon us "an act of Providence."
My first adventure ocourred while
making tbe run between Cincinnati und
St. Louis. I bad been on the road nbout
six weeks and the business was so
hr-avy that we had to have an extra
man. Whilo I took charge of the money
he looked after tbe parcels and boxes,
and we bad a whole car to ourselves.
My assistant was named John Goodhue,
and he had boon one of the check clerks
tn tho freight department of tho Cincinnati office. Ho was an easy-going, good-
natured man of forty, muoh given to
taking things easy, but as ho was the
only man tbo oompany could or would
spare I had to take him as I found him
nnd make the boot of it. Whenever we
pulled outof either city we were very
busy for tne tlrst half hour. I saw that
every thing was properly checked off
and accounted for in tho lino of monoy
and valuables, and then assisted him if
bo was not alivady through, ll thus
Bometimos happened that I was btisy at
my safe in the corner for the first twenty
milea out and that llttio or no conversation was exchanged betwoen us.
On this particular ovening Goodhue
was ten minutes late at the train, but
he took hold with unusual spirit, and
when the stuff was all in we bad tho
car pretty well filled, I wan at my safe
when tbo train pulled out and I heard
Goodhue moving about and going
through the usual routine. We hud
nothing to put off until we reached a
farm thirty miles away and then it was
something In tho lino of freight, I
theroforo took tilings easy and was
smoking as I did my work. I had on
that night, In addition to my own safe
and i^y.OUO, a paymaster's safo whleh
contained nearly a quarter of a million.
I was sitting on this and bonding over
iny owu when I received a blow on the
head from behind. It fell upou tbe left
side of my head und glanced to Uk-
•sjjpuldev, but It knocked mo over side-
•ways in a heap on the lloor. I was not
0tunne_( but It oamo to me in a socond
to "play 'ppsimin." Even while falling
it roaHswl that, it was a plan Lo rob the
.car, and I wondered who Goodhue hnd
behind him. 1 rolled over on my back,
•groaned two or three times and then
fJW».ightoned out, and after a minute I
heard a voice say: "Como out, Jim—
ijn'nwttUid!"
Jt was thf- voice of the man who had
struck mo, but not the voice of Goodhue. I heard a second man como forward, and then the plot was oxposed.
Neither was Goodhue, and both were
Grangers,
"Guoss you've done for him, Torn,"
sttid the luut coiner as ho stood over mo.
"Couldn't help It, Jim —ho'd had
given us a fight if 1 hadn't. Now, then,
wo'vo got thlngscoopered. In flvo minutes we shall be at U tank ville. There's
nothing togo off, but I'll open tho door.
Hit here on tho safe."
, The whistle blow, the train slowed up,
pt)A pretty soon wo were at a stane1 still,
''1'b.e (Y#f'].>er oponed the sliding door
nr»(jstoo4.w cool ns you pionso for two
fit'tlir'oo ftjjtutf'S, and I heard him ce-
ply to tho agent that thero was nothing
(0 go ojf. As soon as the train pulled
out ht) shut tho door un<\ oame over and
paid:
"Open tbe other door. Five miles from
hope Ib tbo stretch of woods, and we
iljiist be roady to dump tho safes at the
wort-"
.My vuwlyor was undor me, in its hoi-
*&>?, ami I WW helpless. The flrat movo
J mad.' would l-ayo brought thom .upon
■die, and they wouli) Jjave beeu certain
to make sure work o( It this time. I
had to let thom carry out their plan,
but I was forming iiiiiithor, Tliu stretch
of woods was tt.o miles long, and betweon Blankville and tho noxt stop was
fHlltftance of eigliti* in miles. The two
small (tiutions botween wero not on our
tlmo tnuo), The train sped along at a
fate of forty miles an hour, and pretty
mun out went thu safes. Then the mon
ran out at Um und i)t tbo car, set tho
brake, una pulled tho bell oord. Thut
was what they did, but I did nut wait to
Beo or bear it. They weru no sooner
clear of thenar tban I roso- up and took
a flying leap straight out Into tho dark-
new after that monoy. There was a
Jong pit's Pt gravel on that side, and I
•truck Into thla, turned over and over
balfa dozon UifliiH, and Anally brought
dp ln a potato patch on tho railroad
strip, badly shaken up* but not a bono
brokon. Tho ongine was whistling for
brake* ft mile away, and as Boon as I
> (louM true my month and eyea of dirt 1
rjtarted down tbo traok. I found the
' Jh'iit s.ifu on tbe edge of tbe ditch, and
the second a hundred feet away bestdo
■ a stump. I dragged mine down tothe
paymaster's then got out my revolver
and hid bobind the stump, and pretty
soon t beard the fellows coming down
tho traok. They had brought the train
Almost to a standstill, and then signaled It to go ahead and jumped. They
wore bunting along the ditch as they
camo, And l waited until they were
within Are rods before I opened Are and
•.iimiu.d; "Here tbey are, boys; shoot
them down I"
Tbey didn't stand for a seoond, but
went off as fast as they could heol it,
followed by my bullets, and half an
hour later I had tbe safes aboard of a
fiuight train. An Investigation proved
Iliad Goodhue waB blind drunk on that
»i -lit. He had accepted an offer to
dvim with a stranger, and had been
filled with Jiquor until he fell down on
the .street/ Tho robbers must, have
known him well, and have also been
familiar with our way of working. Who
they were we never knew.
In November, 1864, when I began the
run between St. Louis and Chicago,
there was scarcely a week that something did not occur to arouse my suspicions. The heft of the money went
South, but there waa always onough on
either run to tempt a robber to take desperate chances. I had a middle-aged,
steady-going man as assistant, and It
would havo had to be a sharp man who
could get the better of him. Now and
then, when vo were carrying big money
for Borne army contractor, he was allowed to send a man along to aot as a
speoial guard. These men were generally Chicago detectives or polioe, and they
rode on an ordor prepared by the Chicago superintendent. One afternoon about
two hours bofore train time, and while
I was at tbo office, a military-looking
man, wbo claimed to be a paymaster,
entered and arranged to express hiB safo
to St. Louis. Its contents were said to
he upward of 8200,000, and he applied
for permission to send two trusty soldiers along in the oar. I heard this
muoh without having taken any speoial
interest in the oase. When we came to
receive our stuff from the wagons chere
waB a paymaster's safe, and a little later
on a man dressed In the uniform of a
sergeant of infantry and accompanied
by a private soldier presented an order
permitting them to rido in our oar as a
guard.
While every thing was regular, I did
not liko tbe looks of the men. Thoy
seemed to me to be tough characters,
and when I got a ohanoe to speak to Graham, my assistant, I found that he entertained the aame opinion and had he-
come suspicious. 1 therefore gave them
the othor ond of the oar and whispered
to Graham that we must keep our oyos
open. The flrst thing we did after tbe
train pulled out was to place our revolvers whero we could grab them on the
Instant, and as we worked over our waybills we kept a weather eye open for
signs. For a time It looked as if wo
had done tho mon an injustice. Ono
took a seat on tho safe and tlie other in
a chair. Em ii lighted a cigar, and their
conversation, :i_ wc overheard a word
now and then, related to military matters
and was honest and straight. When
Graham and 1 had finished our work wo
sat down at tho other end of the cur nnd
tbe quartet of us rode In this fashion,
with only u break now and then, as we
stopped at a station and put off something billed ihere.
Our longest run was botween midnight
and one o'clock. We then passed three
or four small stations without stopping,
making tbo run about nineteen miles.
If tho men wore not what thoy represented they would show thoir hands during this vun. Thoy appeared to he sound
asleep whim we entered upon it, and
Graham, who sat near me, was nodding
in his ohair They had the end of lho car
next to the engino, nnd ull of u suddon,
while 1 wns looking at thom from under
tho vizor of my cup, both arose, stretched
themselves, and ns the sergeant started
for my end nf the oar the other unlocked
the door nud admitted two men. Things
moved like IL ,lining. Hoth of us saw
what wna up, ami as wo sprung to our feet
evory man in tlmt car began shooting. I
can't say whothor the light lasted ono
minute or five, but when It ended I had
a flesh 'wound in the left arm, a rako
across tho cheek, nnd a bullet hole in
my cap. Graham had an oar split by a
bullet, and nnothor embedded in his
shoulder and the car was in darkness,
struck a Match, lighted u candle, and
found lhat we were alone, Not exactly
alone, tut safe from further attack. Tho
sergeant lay dead' on his hack, shot
through tho hoad, and beyond hlm was
one of tho mon who had been admitted,
ho near dead lhat ho gasped his Inst ns
we raised him up. Tho doer was opon,
find iho other two had looped from the
platform. One of them at least was
badly woundod, as a trull of blood
proved.
Tho train hud mado Its run by tho
time we.had sized up tho situation", and
a doctor wus put aboard to dress our
hurts as wo continued the jutu-ncy.
Both corpses were carried into St. Louis
for inquest and identification, but they
could uot bo identified. As you have
surmised, the paymaster's safe was a
dummy. It did not contain one dollar.
Tho wholo job was put up tu get hold of
express money, and the fellows didn't
propose to give us any chance to savo
our lives by giving it up. 1.think that
one of the robbers who jumped also
came to his death, as a man was noxt
day fouud at that spot who had been
out in fragments under the wheels.
Some parts of this adventure reached
the pross, but the express company
hushed matters up in every way possiblo, and in tbls effort thoy were aided
by the Government, lt was afterward
Baid that every member of the gang waB
a Chicago orook, and tbat the man who
personated the paymaster at the offloe
was the sergeant aboard my car.—N. Y.
DERIVATION OF CHICAGO.
The Name Seems to Oome from an Indian
Tenn Meaning Skunk,
A. F. Chamberlain writes this ln
Notes and Queries, on the derivation of
Chicago (Vol. Hi., p. 278), The usual
etymology given for this word Is that
adopted by Lacombe ("Diot. etGramm.
delaLanvtue des Cria," (1874, p. 708):
"Chicago (Crls) pour: chikak, ou, tikak,
botopuante, putois, qui au looatlf, fait
ehikakok;" Cuoq. ("LexlquedelaLangue
Algonqulne," 1886, pp. 88, 69): "Chicago,
pour ehicaeong, a la bete puanto;"
McLean ("the Indians; Their Manners
and Customs," 1889, p. 98): "Chicago,
from chieag, a skunk;" Potitot ("fin
Route pour la Mer Glociale," 1888, p.
80): "Ohieakouk, en hllllne untrou de
putois, est, de fait, un blen sale nom,
mit foil pour une si belle ville;" Captain
Kolton ("Indian Names of PUcos Sou
tbe Qroat Lakes," 1888).
Dr. D. G, Brinton (American Antiquarian and OrientalJournal, Vol. xl.,
p. 08) saya: "Thia popular etymology
Is worse than doubtful. In Chlpoway
tchikakam (In which the final syllable Is
a nasal, sounding to English ears like
an obscure o), means limply 'near the
shore/ and this is the real origin of the
name Chicago."
Another suggested derivation Is that
given ln the 1880 edition of "Chambers'
Encyclopaedia," from an Indian word,
meaning "wild onion" (In Algonkln,
eikaktcack; Ojebways, ahegauguhmtmh).
In the account of La Salle (1683), in
Margry*s "Voyages Ies Francala sur Ies
Grands Lacs, etc." (1880), "la riviere de
Chieagouan is mentioned (p. 650), and
afterward It Is stated that "Les
Cieaca ou CMcatha sont au sud de cette
riviere," and notice Is also taken of
"une petite rlviore quo les Chicacha, appellant Chiehaeha" (p. 658.) There li
further mention (p. 693) of "une oertatno
petite riviero que Ton appelle Chicago."
Schoolcraft (p. 678) says: "This word
ts derived from the odor of the wild
leek, -formerly abundant on Chicago
creek, and the local termination of the
words In o."
Ropes Made of Women's Hnlr.
Speaking bofore a meeting of the
Methodist ministers, Bishop Fowler
told of a new. heathen temple in tho
northern part.of Japan, lt Isofenor-
mous size, and tho timbers wero hauled
to and placed in tholr prosent pusitiou
by ropos made from the hair af the
women of tho provinco. An odlot wont
forth oalling for tho long hair of the
women, and enough was obtained to
make two monster ropos—ono 17 inches
in olroiimfrroii'.e and 1,-100 foot long,
nnd the other 10 to 11 inches around and
2,000 foot long.
WANTED ASSISTANCE.
Bow • Knight of the Bond Attacked a
Meeting of Deneons.
The trustees had just begun the business of their monthly meeting, and
Deacon Smith had the floor, says tbe
New York • Evening Sun. They were
legislating for one of South Norwalk's
most prosperous churches. Two of tbe
members had late businesa engagements
in the city, and Deacon Smith's shop on
the main street, near the station, had
been chosen for the meeting this month
for the sake of convenience. The
deacon was woll under way when the
outer door was seen to open slightly,
and he paused to note the cause of the
interruption.
Connecticut is famed for the extensive
variety of Its tramps, and oneof the
most "interesting type now appeared.
Hia entrance Into the room was made tn
a thoroughly original manner. When
tho door waB sufficiently ajar to admit
of his head it popped in on the astonished deacons, surmounted by a most
dilapidated hat and complemented by a
smiling face and a full, ragged beard
When he became assurod that no tangible [obstacle was on Its way to meet
him he opened the door wide, and,
with another glance of satisfaction
on the benevolent faces that surrounded
hlm, he softly cloned tho door behind
him and stepped Jauntily forward, with
his hat in bis hand. His halt
hung down over his face tn a rakish way.
but with a graceful sweep of his long
arm ho caught up a wad of it ln his hand
and laid it hack from his forehead. He
had on a long frock coat fastened closely around his waist by a thorn, and from
tho flowing flap above oozed out the ends
uf a much-soiled handkorchiof. His
closely-fitting trousers, through numerous purtals of which protruded hiB In
terestlng self, seemed to run without
any dividing line into tho shoe and bout
which respectively Incased his feet.
The deacons had time to note these
peculiarities before the stranger broko
tho silence. His voice soomed to emanate from that particular boot and
emerged with a most pronounced French
accent, which will here be omitted.
"Gentlemen," he began, "your pardon
for disturbing you, but I am very sick."
He paused after this announcement
to note thu effect.
"I went to the dootor," he soon continued, "and he gave me tbe pills—see,
tbe pills," and he held up to view a
small bottle which he had ln the palm
of his hand.
"He" said take the pills, three after
eaoh meal, and I would like very muoh
to have somo assistance."
"Well, why in thunder don't you take
your pills, thon, and not come bothering here!" interposed a deacon who was
becoming tired.
"Gentlemen," replied the tramp, with
much unction, "I oan not take the pilla;
I havo no meal."
He got that meal.
A SHOP-GIRL'S PROTEST.
Sho Doesn't Want the Sympathy of Misguided Philanthropists.
The Chicago Tribune recently re-
reoeived the following from a retail
house on Stato street:
"I want to protest against thiB twaddle
about the poor shop-girl.. I havo heard
tt rung in my ears for weeks, day and
night. And from people wbo know
nothing about our business and real!}
caro less. lam tired of being pointed
out as a weary shop-girl. 1 am tired of
being asked the question by pooplu
whom I never saw before and probabl*,
will never see again until I run up
aguinst thein tn the next world, nnd
thon I shall expect them to aay to mo
'You poor, tirod thing. You look too
weary to twang your harp.'
"Let mo tell these sympathetic
creatures something. We do got tired
So do tho bank clerks, and I supposc
there ia such a thing as newspaper ilioi*
tiring But they are never singled oi.i
as we aro as objects of sympathy. Yoi.
may think I am ungrateful. I am
not. I don't want any so-called
sympathy from strangers. Besides, 1
would like to Inform tho sympathizers
that the average shop-girl of to-day te
better off fur being such. She is well
treated by her employer. Of courso she
has to work. Sho is not employed as a
picture. I know one manager In Chi
cago who never allows a girl In searcli
of work to leave his place without one
day's pay ln her pocket. If sho is
worthy sho may be retained. During
the crowdod soason JuBt passed I know
of many shop-girls who wore not mil*
given extra pay and furnished wltli
lunches and dinners, but given valuable
presents, and their home peoplo were
In some Instances, remembered by man
agers and employers. Many did not re
ceive such consideration, and 1 have n.
doubt that in a majority of sucheas >
they did not receive It becauso they tin!
not merit it. It tbo shop-girl attends to
her business Bhe will get along all right
and won't need so much sympathy."

A Hani Life Wricked by st Moment ol
ForgetfulnMi,
"There goo* a man whose life wu
ruined by forgetting tbe simplo character 0,"uld a promlnont railroad man to
a Ban Franoisco Ex ami nor reporter,
pointing to a ragged, besotted man
shambling along tbe street, unmindful
of the rain.
Iln was a train dispatcher on tbo Ohio
& Mississippi railroad onoe, having
worked up to tbat position from messenger boy ln the telegraph offlce. One
Sunday be bad only two trains on his
division, an express train Westward
bound and a fast stock train running
Eaat Tbe day was warm and sultry,
and BUI, for tbac wu bla name, had
hard work to koop awake. Ho know,
that u soon as ho made the meoting
point for tho two trains ho oould doze,
and he Impatiently awaited tho tlmo.
When tbe truiiiH woro close enough together for blm to figure a meeting point
he aent an order to tbo passenger train
to meet and pass tbo stook train
at a Uttle station callod Willow Valloy,
fixing the time at 12 50. To tbe
stoek train he sent an order that It could
have until 1:38 to make Willow Valley
for the pusengor. Soe the mistako.
Uo forgot tbe 0, and benee gave the
Stock train thirty-five minutes moro than
he should. BUI saw his mistako ton
minutes after he had made tt, but there
being no telegraph station between the
points where the trains were givon tbe
orders or at tbe meeting point ho oould
do nothing to rectify it. Ho sent for
the superintendent and ordered out tho
wrecking crow, then sat at the key pale
U death, the cold perspiration running
down bla faoe ln streams, awaiting nows
of the oolllson.
Iteame. The passenger train reached
Willow Valley on time, waited tho required thirty minutes undor tho time-
card rules for tbe freight train and
then pulled out. Throo minutes later
tbe two trains met on a curve, both running at a high rate of speed. Fourteen
Uvea were lost in tbe ool ltslon, hoaldos
$100,000 worth of property destroyed.
BUI resigned at onoe, and tbe noxt day
disappeared. For a long time it wu
thought be had committed suicide, but 1
met him on tbe street hero one day Just

The Browni-IIle Wharf.   Italia en Route
and to he here In April.    Grading
from Fairhaven North.
Mr. Geo. P. Janes, C. E., returned
from Fairhaven last night and was found
in the Southern Railway Co.'s office in
the Masonic Block this morning by a
representative of The Columbian. He
says it is the company's intention to
build a much larger wharf at Brownsville than was at first proposed, and in
consequence of this decision more extensive soundings will be necessary, and
these will be commenced within a few
days. The new wharf will probably be
about 600 feet in length, of very substantial build, but its exact dimensions
have not yet been decided on. The
wharf will be built by Mr. James Leamy,
who is the contractor for all work on the
Bouth Bide of the river to the boundary.
Two veeaels are now on the voyage
from England to this port, and the first
Bhould arrive about April 15th. ThiB
vessel will bring 2,800 of the English
steel rails, and the Becond vessel about
2,000 tons. The five milea of road bed
not yet built, between the Nicomekl
River and Blaine, will be commenced
next week, and, if the weather is favorable, finished within 00 daya. From
Fairhaven north the road has been
graded a distance of five miles, but operations have been suspended for some
weeks owing to the dispute with the B.
B. & B. C. road as to right of way. This
matter, however, has been satisfactorily
settled, and construction will be recommenced with a large force of men aud
Eushed with the utmost speed towards
ilaine, where the two linea join at the
boundary.   That the road will be com-
Sleted with trains running by Julv 1st,
Ir. Janes feels certain, providing, of
course, that no accident happens the
vessels now bringing the rails. Several
vessels are on the voyage from New
York to Fairhaveu with rails for the
American portion of the line, and they
are expected to arrive at an oarly date.
From Fairhaven south the railway is
completed to Cedro, and trains are running daily. From Cedro south towards
Seattle the road is being graded, and a
large number of men are employed on
the work. The company are now considering plana for a steel bridge across
the river at Cedro, and a bridge across the
Fraser opposite this city is also under
consideration. Mr. Janes haB estimated
the cost of a suitable bridge, with approaches, across the Fraser at $1,000,-
000, and he says it cannot be built for
much I.bb. The water ia 80 feet deep
where piers will have to be built, and
tlie approaches will have to be very substantial, and consequently very expensive. Even if the company does decide
to bridge the river, it will he necessary
to put ou a large ferry Bteamer for
time.       -____,._______.

The case of Mr. and Mra. Hennessey
against the Corporation of the City of
New Westminster, for damages received
by Mrs. Hennessey falling into an unprotected excavation on Columbia Street t
and which was heard before Mr. J ustice
McCreight and a jury in the Supreme
Court yesterday, was concluded at a late
hour last night, Mr. A. J. McColl and
Mr. E. A. Jenns appeared for the plaintiffs, Mr. Eckstein for D. A. McDonald,
and Mr. 8. Perry Mills for tho Corporation. The jury was composed as follows:
J. E. Lord (foreman), A. W. Lundbom,
W. R. Austin, F. Eickhoff, John Taylor,
J. C. Henderson, John Devine and John
Dougall.
Tho evidence of a large number of
persons was taken, and to a large extent wns favorable to the plaintiff. It
waB shown by the evidence that the
excavation was not properly protected,
aud that the spot where the accident
occurred waB very dangerous, it waa
also brought out that the proper stepa to
secure foot passengers againBt accident
were not taken till after the mishap to
MrB. Hennessey occurred. The case was
ably conducted by the counsel on all
sides, and no point was omitted that
could be brought to bear in either direction. After the evidence was all in, and
the usu.il addresses had been made by
tho counsel and Judge McCreight, the
t'ury retired and iu an hour returned
•ringing u verdict to the following effect:
"That Mr. McDonald, the contractor
waa guilty of negligence, but Mrs. Hennessey waa not guilty of contributory
negligence; that the Corporation waB
not aware of the square hole in the sidewalk that caused the accident, but had
sufficient time to acquaint itself of the
fact prior to the accident." The finding
concluded by awarding $750 damages to
the plaintiffs. The question of costs wilt
be Bettled later. 	
The New Vanoouver.     <
Considerable excitement waB created
in Vancouver yesterday morning, snys
the World, when the news lenked out
that a roport had been received from
Montreal intimating that the trustees of
the Vancouver townsite, Sir Donald A.
Smith and Mr. R. B. Augus, acting for
the thirty-six hundred shareholders iu
the capital stock of the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company, and believing it to
be in the best interests of their shareholders, In conjunction with President
Van Horne had decided upon erecting
the company's permanent offices and
general passenger depot at the foot of
south Granville street. The World endeavored to ascertain the accuracy of
the report and the source whence it
emanated, and regards the matter now
as thoroughly authentic. The officials
whilst neither denying the rumor or
vouching for its accuracy went so far as
to assert that such a step had bceu contemplated for some time, but that the
announcement of its construction reached here sooner than waa anticipated.
No surprise, they assert, need be expressed at tne decision reached, for the
company has doue all In its power to
further the interests of the city. It was
largely through its instrumentality, and
the assistance rendered by Mr. A. W.
Ross, that a magnificent public building
was promised to be erected by the Government ou what is now absolutely certain would have been tho centre of the
future city of Vnucouver. Tite hostility
displayed to tho company, and the despicable means adopted bo misrepresent
the views of a majority of our citizens,
had the effect of compelling tlio parties
named to take the courso it is now an
nounced they have adopted.
The question arises, will the proposed
change affect ths Vancouver of to-day?
There are thoae who assert that thore
will be at least two sections to the city
and that a considerable one will spring
up at the entrance of False Creek and
fronting on English Bay, where, as is
well-known, the railway company has a
solid block of fifty-five hundred acres of
land, of which but about a couple of
hundred acres have been denuded of the
timber. Others allege that this step
will give the projected line from New
Westminster, and such others as will be
constructed from the south, a splendid
chance to secure all the east end traflic
and that the city will continue to prosper in that direction. The fact should
not be forgotten that the condition upou
which the grant of six thousand ncres
was made by the Government was that
the Canadian Pacific Railway would
construct, operate and maintain its main
or trunk line to Coal Harbor and English Bay. To the flrst named place the
stipulation haB been carried out, but
not in so far sb the latter is concerned,
A few days' timo will develop the whole
policy of tho company in connection
with the affair.

named Mary on Wednesday night, appeared before the court this morning to
answer the charge laid against him. It
was given in evidence that the whole
party was drunk when the row occurred,
and that the whisky had beeu obtained
from a Chinaman. Thore was an evident desire on the part of the witnesses
to shield Johnny, who it appears iaa
great favorite in the swamp. The
charges, however, were proved, and
Johnny was sentenced to six months
imprisonment in the provincial gaol
with hard labor.

(From Our Own Correspondent.]
Thursday's Proceedings.
Viotobia, Feb. 26,—-Mr. Speaker took
tho chair at 2:10 p. m. Prayers by Rev.
D. Fraaer.
Mr. Cunningham presented the petition of the corporation of Vancouver.
Mr. Orr presented a petition for leave
to introduce a bill to drain Burnaby
Lake. On motion of Mr. Orr tho petition was received and referred to the private bills committe. The petition was
later ruled out of order.
The petition of the inhabitants of Seymour Creek waa also ruled out of. order.
Mr. Martin presented the report of
the committee on standing orders nnd
private bills and Baid the rulos had been
complied in the bills for the Westminster Tramway Co. and the British Columbia Mills, Timber and Trading Co,
Report received.
Mr. Ladner presented a report from
the printing committee.
Hon. John Robson said this was something now.
Mr. Speaker said it had never happened before.
Mr. Ladnor iu explanation of his position said that the presenting of this report to the House had been the unanimous wish of the committee, and what
could he do? _w*asmm
Hon. Mr. Davie—Who's chairman of
that committee?
Mr. Ladner solemnly tapped himself
on the middle of the veBt with the index
finger of his right hand, but safd never
a word;   (Laughter).
After much discussion the motion to
read the report waa lost.
Col. Baker roso and said that he had
a resolution to propose of great importance to the province and for reasons
which could be very briefly explained it
was of the utmost importance that it
should be brought before tho House
that day. He asked that the standing
orders be suspended thnt tho House
might discuss the question of the British
Columbia Southern Bailway. The following is tho resolution:
Whereas a company known as the
''Spokane Falls and Northern Railway
Company" has applied to the Dominion
Government for charters for railways
from the following points: From the
boundary line at the point of intersection of Pend d'Oreille River to the town
of Nelson, and thenco to the western
terminus of the Crow's Nest Railway;
from the boundary line at the point of
intersection of the Kettle River, thence
to tho port of Vancouver on the coast:
And whereas the construction of such
lines would make a through Hue of rail*
way communication from the Crow's
Nest Pass to Vancouver, to be known aa
the "British Columbia Southern Railway," and would, by reason of the great
navigable waterways which intersect
the said lino of railway at right
angles at four different points,
be the means bf developing tlie
vast natural resources of the whole
southern portion of the Province, and
thereby would be a great benefit to
trade:
And whereas it is understood that
strenuous opposition, not in the interest
of the Province, is being offered in order
to defeat the passing of the said Bills
through the Dominion House:
Therefore be it resolved, that an humble address be presented to His Honour,
the Lieutenant-Governor, praying that
His Honour will without prejudice to
firovincial rights immediately move the
>oiiiinion Government, that the char-
tors applied for by the "Spokane FallB
nnd Northern Railway Company" may
be granted: Provided always, that
clauses be inserted compelling the company to commence wont this yoar ou
both lines, that is to aay: from Pend
d'Oreille towards Nolson ; from Kettle
River to the west: and from Vnucouver
to tho eaat; that work Bhould ho continued concurrently from all these points;
that the railway to tho western terminus of tho Crow'a Nost line Bhould ho
completed iu four yeara, aud the railway
to the wost in six years from the granting of the charters; and that in default
of those torms being complied with both
charters, together with the rights appertaining thereto, shall be forfeited;
and that a copy of this resolution be ut
onco transmitted by telegraph to the
Dominion Government,
The mover explained that he morely
asked tho suspensions of the standing
orders theu that the resolution might
bo introduced at once. If deferred until Monday what the resolution aimed
to accomplish might be lost and it wns
to save valuable time that he recommended this urgency.
Mr. Speaker said that if thero were
uo objections the motion would be in
order.   Received.
Col. Baker then explained that the
title of this measure hud boen changed
from tho Kootenay South and Kootenay
West Railway to the Britiih Columbia
Southern Railway.
After diacuBsion the resolution was
adopted.

The Picton Gazette does not favorably
regard Dr. Piatt's cowardice in shirking
the vote on Mr. Mulock's resolution in
the Dominion Parliament on tho subject
of British connection. It demands that
he resign the position of Surgeon of the
10th County of Prince Edward battalion.
The influenza epidemic and consquent
overtaxing of the undertakers led to extensive use of the crematory in Paris.
It had formerly been used seldom except for the destruction of what iB
known aB "debris;" that is, of the fragments of bodies that come from the dissecting rooms. The Protestant clergymen made no objection to its use, but
Jewish and Catholic clergymen refused
to officiate at the funeral ceremonies
over bodies intended for cremation.—
Ex.
It may not be known to many peoplo
that Queen Victoria is an ardent student of African geography, nnd could
pasa a very creditable examination in
that subject with Mr. Stanley as the interrogator, observes an exchange. Hor
Majesty haa carefully watched the Porta*
gucao encroachments, aud when the
news of tho outrage on the British flag
reached London it was the Queen herself who insisted on Lord Salisbury compelling Portugal to come to n definite
understanding without delay.      Y
Referring to the Orange Bill, L'Eten-
dard, ot Montreal, says that its adoption
will mean certain and early civil war,
for if the Orangemen attempt a street
parade in Montreal next 12th of July a
bloody riot Ib sure to follow. "Howevor
largely," lt adds, "the patience and forbearance of Catholics, both French,
Canadians and Irish, may bo depended
upon, the provocation will be too great,
Nothing can prevent bloodshed." The
Jesuit organ adds that there will be a
conflict of authority, as the provincial
law already forbids Orangemen holding
demonstrations outside their lodges,
Sheep are now aheared by electricity
in Australia, Frederick Wolseley, a
brother of Lord Wolseley, having invented a machine for the purpose. The
method of using the shears is vory simple, tho operator having merely to throw
a friction wheel into adjustment by
means of a handle, and then push the
comb into the wool, pressing it continuously forward and keeping it ns closely
as possiblo to the body of the animal being operated upon. From one to 100
shears can be operated nt one time. By
this mode the shearing is done more
mercifully than when done by hnnd
shonrs.
The Ottawa Citizen of a recent date
says editorally: Mr. Blake in his ele
ment, delivering sentences as symmetrical as though fashioned by a turning
lathe, has again become n prominent
figure in tho House of Commons, For
two years, the member for West Durham
has taken little interest in the debates
he has been but n "looker-on in Venice,'
nnd it Is questionable whether his speech
on the dual language ombroglio would
have been mado, had he been able to re*
sist the temptation of toying with any
exciting issue, Mr. Blake delights to
burn incense to the heroic; Iub speeches
nre never commonplace; his aspirations
never mediocre. He loves tho broad
glare and fierce light of the political
stage; to auch au extent, in fact, that
one is tempted to suspect that he would
delight in assuming all the characters
and playing nil the roles, at one and the
same time.
