guarded by deputy sheriffs, and placed
upon the witness stand. He retraced
the story of his confession, charging
John Wylie with the murder of his wife
and children and saying he paid him
$200 for the deed. How much of this
testimony was believed is indicated by
the summary acquittal of Wylie.
A Silly Han.

Hotel, Victoria, was living with a woman named Annie K. Johnson,' alias
Ella Marston ,\ short time ago.
threw him over because she had to support him, and took up with another
man. Anderson took the matter very
much to heart. Last night there was a
ball at the Auzra House where Anderson stops, aad the woman Johnson was
there with the "other fellow" Anderson watched the couple all night and at

to one side. After talking a few minutes with her she accompanied him to

Raleigh, N. C, Feb. 20.—News was
received here to-day of serious negro

It seems that the negroes have been
incensed at the opposition of the whites

determined to avenge themselves by
burning the town. On Sunday night
the buildings of the Wilmington Oil
Co, were burned to the ground. On
Monday night the mammoth carriage
works and machine shops of Hackney
Bros., including three large buildings,
were burned, entailing a loss of -1150,000.
Again last night the incendiaries fired
the buildings of the Rocky Mount fair
grounds in the suburbs of the town,
which were burned to the ground. The
object of these Incendiaries la to decoy
people from the towns, so that the work
of destroying it might be completed.
The town is completely aroused, and Is
under the patrol of a strong posse of
citizens. The Rocky Mount Light Infantry have been ordered out. A num*
ber of suspects are under surveillance,
and will be promptly arrested if there la
further trouble.

and Jamestown, $126,000 to be deposited
iu each town. Senator Spence, of Alabama, attorney for the Louisiana Lottery Co., was interviewed and said relating to it: "Its all bosh. The Lottery Bill is dead so far as Alex, McKenzie or I are concerned. If the people of
North Dakota want a lottery they will
have to start one on their own hook.
We have given up the scheme entirely.
There was not a bare possibility of its
becoming law, no matter how liberal our
offer was made. The whole country had
risen up in arms against the measure,
and we would be branded for life if the
bill had become law.

and sensational character to-day concerning tbe lottery scheme, it was reported the Louisiana Lottery Bill would

shape that its chances lor passage wero
assured. The company was to give the
state |260,000 tho first year and 1160,000

VICTORIA NEWS,
A Prlte Fight Between a Negro and a
White Man—A Strange Accident—
Grand Legislative Dinner.
(From Our Own Correspondent,)
Victoria, Feb. 19.—A bloody and
brutal prize fight for an unknown stake'
took place on Sunday night in the rear
premises of a Baloon in this city. The
combatants were a negro and a white
It is said that 107 rounds were
fought with bull dog ferocity. Both men
were literally bathed in blood from head
to foot, and battered black and blue.
The fight commenced under what are
known as Marquis of Queensberry rules,
but before the battle bad progressed up
to the fiftieth round it was anybody's
rules—a hammer-and-tongs melee, in
which teeth, fists, nails, feet and knees
were used with horrible effect. A select
party of" gentlemen" enjoyed tlie rare
sport and gloried in the gory spectacle
to their-heart's content. The fight was
declared a draw, and, incredible us it
may seem, both msn walked home alone
aha unaided. A plentiful sample of
sanguineous fluid was left on the floor of
the room where the meeting took place;
and thiB apartment had rather more the
appearance of a section of a slaughter
house tlian the rear room of a dwelling
in the good city of Victoria.
Your correspondent was witness to a
strange accident last Monday evening.
While crossing the James Bay bridge
shortly after sundown, in the gloaming
in fact, he heard the rapid beat of wings
and looking up saw a wild duck (lying at
the usual high rate of speed at which
theae birds travel, passing over the
bridge; the next moment there was a
sharp twang as the duck struck a low-
hanging telegraph wire, and with a
kind of moan of pain the poor bird flitted
down to the water some eighty yards
away aud settled there. As it did not
stir for some minutes it is not impossible
that it may have broken its unfortunate
neck; this is only another strong argument iu favor of the beauties of a country life.
The Ministers of the Legislative Assembly gave a grand dinner to the members of tlie House Monday night, at the
residence of Hon. Mr. Turner. The
affair was very brilliant and a most enjoyable evening was spent by everyone.
Nearly all the members were preaent
and some fine speeches were made.
The Islanders, football team is practising hard for the game with the Mainland, and the latter gentlemen had better not como here with their lesson half
learned, as the Island team plays a magnificent game now, and are not to be
trifled with.
English opera on the grandest scale
ever witnessed in this Province was
gloriously ushered in Monday evening
at the Victoria by prima donna Emma
Juch and her great company, in
Gounod's "Faust." The fashion, wealth
and beauty of the Queen City packed
the house from gallery to orchestra.
The value of the house was estimated at
an easy 11,600. Emma and her people
don't trill for less than a cold $1,000 per
noetom—at least not if they know it.
lt Is alao retailed aa copyrighted gossip
that Emma haa a sweiit, little temper of
her own, and. like the divine Sarah B,,
sometimes takes it into her classically
beautiful head to stamp her small foot
and say "Emma shall not sing to-night,"
and in that case three hundred or so of
evening-dressed ladies and gentlemen
have to go home nndelighted. The seats
for last night and to-night were eagerly
engaged several days ahead. The manager of Miss Juch's company took a trip
to Vancouver to spy out the land, but
when he saw the theatre accommodation
there he longed for Victoria and home.
Hecould'nt risk Miss Juch's and his
own reputation by catching cold in that
homely temple of Thespis. So Juch
won't Bing in the terminal city this trip.
A startling discovery has been made
here to the effect that the opium hells
in this city are frequented not only by
white men high In society, but h
women of good social position, as well
Your correspondent will have something
further to say about this in a few days.
The open sesame of these placeB is no
trifle to secure; but, aa even the brazen
doors of Abaddon may be opened by
perseverance, more especially if wielded
oy one of "the wretched," It ia probable
that the mystic abracadabra whereby
the drowsy doors of opium wonderland
are swung back wltl not remain long a
secret to the earnest searcher.
It ia bruited about on all hands that
the present year will be romarkablo to
Victoria as one of the most prosperous,
en ter pri nlng and progressive in her his-
tory. Certainly t aa far aa outward appearances go, thia prophecy seems juat
and fair. Real estate Ib going to do
some wonderful things, a whole navy of
richly-laden argosies Ib pressing on
stun'-sails aud Bky-scrapers to every
favoring breeze and shaping course for
Victoria harbor, from the four quarters
of the globo; heavy orders have been
placed with the large mercantile houses,
and the foundries and shops have more
than they can do.
A Remarkable'Case Presented at Berlin Yesterday of a Girl who
Enjoys Pain.
The German Eleotion.
Berlin, Feb. 20.—The vote being
polled throughout the empire for members of the' Reichstag is phenomenally
large. So great was the rush that at
times the police found it difficult to
maintain order at the polls, particularly
during dinner hour. Tho majority of
the factories closed to permit employees
to vote. Intense excitement was caused
here by an unexpected nnd startling
movement of troops stationed in and
about the city. At 1 o'clock this afternoon the entire garriaon of Berlin waa
ordered under arms and by the Emperor's command given the route to
Krenaelong. A panic wasonlyprevented
by the announcement that the movement waa aimply a military surprise,
intended to test the discipline or the
garrison.

Very Easily Pleased.
Berlin, Feb. 20.—Professor Baidelben
at his clinic yesterday, presented to the
students a young lady who he explained belonged to a class of hysterical patients who actually enjoy painful operations performed on themselves. Tlie
young lady while in ■» spasm of hysterics
broke her lower jaw and injured the
facial artery, necessitating the ligation
of the carotid artery. She insisted on
having the painful and delicate operation of the complete exarticulation of
the lower jaw performed without the
administration of esthetics, and it is a
conclusion formed by the professor with
every appearance of sincerity, that it
actually gave her pleasure,
The Smart Italians.
Naples, Feb. 20.—Buffalo Bill's Wild
West Show opened here to.day. Among
the spectators who witnesssed the performance were 2,000 people who had

THB KEEFER DIVOBOB BILL.
The bill—"An Act for the relief of
Hugh Forbes Keefer," is as follows:
Whereas Hugh Forbes Keefer, of the
City of Vancouver, in tbe Province of
British Columbia, contractor, has, by
his petition, humbly set forth that he
duly married Rebecca Ann Keefer( formerly Rebecca Ann Tisdall, spinster) on
the second day of March, in the year of
our Lord one thousand eight hundred
and seventy-one, at tbe village of
Thorold, in the County of Welland, and
Province of Ontario, according to the
rites and ceremonies of the Church of
England; that tbe said marriage waa by
license: that after the solemnization of
the said marriage the said Hugh Forbes
Keefer and Rebecca Ann Keefer lived
together and cohabited together at
Thorold aforesaid, until about the year
eighteen hundred and eighty-three; that
there was issue of the said marriage two
children, to wit: Nita Radcliffe Keefer
and Harry McMickeu Keefer; that, In
or about the year eighteen hundred and
eighty-three, the said Rebecca Ann
Keefer deserted ber said husband and
hns not since resided with thesaid Hugh
Forbes Keefer; that after she deserted
her said husband as aforesaid he discovered, as the fact was, that the said
Rebecca Ann Keefer had beeu leading
an irregular life, and had committed
adultery in or about the year eighteen
hundred and eighty-three and on divers
occasions subsequent to tbe said last
mentioned year; that ever since she
committed tlie Baid adultery he has
lived separate and apart from her and
has uot cohabited with her, and that he
has not in any way condoned the said
adultery, and that no colluaion nor connivance exists between hiin and her to
obtain a dissolution of the said marriage.
"And whereas the said Hugh Forbes
Keefer bas humbly prayed that the said
marriage may be dissolved, and be declared henceforth null ana void to all
intents and purposes whatsoever, ao aa
to enable him to marry again, and that
such further relief may be afforded him
as is deemed meet."
"And whereas the said Hugh Forbes
Keefer haB proved the allegations of his
Baid petition and has established the
adultery above mentioned, and it is expedient that the prayer of his said petition Bhould be granted:
"Therefore Her Majesty, by and with
the advice and consent otthe Senate and
House of Commons of Canada, enacts as
follows:
"1. The said marriage between the
said Hugh Forbes Keefer and thesaid
Rebecca Ann Keefer, his wife, is hereby dissolved and shall henceforth be null

"3. In the event of the said Hugh
Forbes Keefer hereafter marrying, he
and the woman whom he so marries and
the issue, if any, of any euch marriage

THAT MAIL SUBSIDY.
By our report in yesterday'B iBaue of
Tuesday's Local House proceedings It
will be seen that the resolution which
Mr. Ladner gave notice of a few days
ago was introduced, as follows: "Where*
" as the Dominion Estimates do not
" contain a grant of money as a subsidy
" for conveying the mails between Vic-
" toria and New Westminster, this
"House is of the opinion that a great
" inconvenience and injury will be done
" to the farmers, the canners, and others
" on the Fraser River, if the said sub-
" sidy is withdrawn, and that an hum-
" ble address be presented to His Honor
" the Lieutenant-Governor, requesting
" him to draw the attention of the Do-
" minion Government to this question
"at tbe earliest possible date." The
resolution waB seconded by Mr. Orr, and
both the mover and the honorable tbe
Premier strongly and ably supported the
motion. Tub Cot.unbian has already
called attention to the withdrawal of
this subsidy of $7,600 from the Dominion
Estimates for the ensuing year, and intimated that some aotion would be taken
in the matter. Mr. Ladner's resolution
just about covers the ground, and, with
the influential support which it received
in the House, and the assurance of the
Premier, Hon, John Robson, that the
matter would be presented in its strongest light to the Dominion authorities,
we believe it may almost be taken for
granted that the unwarrantable withdrawal of the subsidy will be reconsidered and the sum stated continued in
the estimates as usual.
As Hon. Mr. Robson pointed out, the
question is a broader one than mere
mail service. It is a question of regular
Bteamer service, the necessity for which,
both with respect to the two important
cities connected and the large and important canning and other industries
situated along the river below this city
is constantly increasing instead of
diminishing. So far from having no
assured service at all, the present service,
as the Premier also lntimated,demanded
considerable improvement. To quote
his owu words, as reported by our correspondent, is to place the matter iu a
pretty clear and correct light: "The
" necessity for a mail subsidy for the
" Fraser river was greater than for any
" other part of the Province. * * *
" As things stood at present the steam-
" ers ran pretty much as they had a
" mind to and suited their own time and
" convenience without reference to the
" mails, and it was a good deal for this
" very reason that the question of the
" mail subsidy should be strenuously
The majority of our readers know very
well that the above quoted remarks are a mild criticism on the
sort of service that this city has
been forced to put up with for years
past from the steamers of tho Victoria-
Westminster route. And now the Dominion solons have come to the conclusion that we can get along without any
regular service at all, just because Mr.
Haggarty haB discovered that he can slide
in our Victoria and San Francisco mails
via Vancouver instead of by direct
iteamer from Victoria. We venture to
say that, had our esteemed represents
tive, Mr. Chisholm, been in his place In
the Dominion House, instead of beiug
unfortunately indisposed at home, he
would have vigorously protested against
the withdrawal of the subsidy in question. When everything is considered,
the proposed action of the Government
in the matter appears absolutely inexcusable, not to say absurd, and we hope
to see, as it has been plainly shown the
circumstances urgently demand, not
only provision made for the continuance
of the subsidy, but the insistence by the
proper authorities that Her Majesty's
mail earrlers on the Important route in
question shall fulfil the spirit and
letter oi their contract lu future, which
certainly has not been doue in the
past.       ^^^^^^^^^
JOSEPH BIGGAR.
Many an Irishman's heart the world
over was sad when the wires flashed
that Mr. Biggar had died suddenly of
heart disease. Probably there never
was a man of whom the estimate by
friends and enemies was so diverse,
Among his intimates he was an idol,
and one who knew him well has placed
it on record that at all private and convivial meetings of the Irish party, when
the toast list waB reduced to ft minimum, the "Health of Mr. Biggar" was
by no chance omitted. Then arose a
cheer, long and spontaneous, and even
Mr. Parnell, usually cold, grew warm
and tender in his eloquence. Why is
this? Because to those who knew him
he was ever an unselfish man, overflowing with kindness. With the cares of
nearly sixty years on his head, he was
at the beck and call of many men who
might have been his grandchildren.
Whenever Mr. Healy wanted to quote a
bluebook, or return, "Joe" was called
into requisition aa messenger, and
should it not have been quite convenient for Mr. Sexton to interview a too
importunate constituent, Biggar was
always the man to get rid of the visitor
in the most pleasant manner. Did Mr.
Parnell think the debate going a little
too pleasantly for Ministers, it but required a hint to the member for Cavan
and in no time, he was on hf i feet filling
up thn time, heaven only knows how,
Should a lady want to hear the debate,
and be at a loss for the necessary credentials to take her behind the "grille,"
she at onco remembared Mr. Blggar's
reputation, and sent for him to assist
her. And yet, to the outside publle he
wai the "most odious type of Irish freo-
" tiousness," whilst he was worshipped
by the attendants of tbo House, ftdoied
by the policemen, and "there is good
' reason for the suspicion that there
' was a secret treaty of inviolable friend-
' ihip between him and the late aer-
" geant-at-arniB, the genial aud uni-
" versally popular Captain Goseett,
"founded on their common desire to
" bring sittings to an abrupt and in-
" glorious end by a 'count out.'"
This wai one side of hiB character;
but, an Ulsterman, he had the true
Ulster character, and his bate was as
fierce and unquestioning as his love.
Fearless, single minded, and dogged in
purpose, the very worst show of temper
on the part of the House never moved
him or caused him a moment of trepidation. Whilst to his friends he was the
most loveable of natures, In the ferocity
of his hatred he was the " Pere Goriot"
of Irish politics.
On April 22,1875, Mr. Butt, the then
leader of the Home Rule party, requested Mr. Biggar, then almost a new member, to ipeak against time in order to
delay a coercive bill. "How long would
"vou wish me to apeak?"asked he. "A
"pretty good while," was the answer.
Mr. Biggar gave a very liberal interpretation to the mot d'ordre, for at five
o'clock he rose and did not sit down
until five minutes to nine, having
" bridged over the interval" by reading
from numerous Acts of Parliament and
blue books.
In after daya, when the leadership fell
to Mr. Parnell, and the active policy of
that gentleman fint of all amused, then
astonished, and last of all exasperated,
the Houae, Joseph Biggar was attacked
with the most bitter and virulent abuse
and vulgar personalities. For all this
he cared little, and remained equally
unruffled under the perfervid oratory of
indignant Ministers and the cheap
diatribes of the Tory rank and file.
In appearance Mr. Biggar was certainly not attractive, being what is commonly known as a hunchback, but to
liim, with all truth, might be applied
the words of Basuanio—
The dearest friend, the kindest man,
The best conditioned and unwearied spirit
In doing courtesies.
LEPROSY.
Tub actual existence of any such
disease as leprosy seemed to have been
forgotten by the modern world until
early in April of last year the cables
flashed the intelligence to all parts of
the earth that Father Darnien waB uo
more, having died a missionary leper
among the outcasts of Molokoi. Then
people began to wonder how It was they
bad never remembered that leprosy is
not altogether a thing of the past, and
when the Prince of Wales announced
from a public platform that for years a
porter at one of the principal meat markets in London had been a sufferer from
this foul scourge, something like a panic
seized not only the English but the
European public.
Again have the claims of the lepers
upon public sympathy been brought into notice by the heroic conduct of the
daughter of an English Church clergy
man, who recently sailed for the Hawaiian Islands, to take charge of the
sufferers who were left to mourn the loss
of that great soulcd man, Father Da-
mien. Miss Fowler, the lady In question, although the daughter of an
Anglican clergyman, is herself
sister in a Roman Catholic religious order. She hai for years
wished to take up the work of nursing
the unclean, and to that end has been
studying medicine in Paris, at the Pasteur Institute. She is described as being of remarkably attractive appearance,
about twenty-seven years of age, and as
having a voice full of music and tender
sympathy.
Just previous to Miss Fowler's departure for Molokoi, Sir Andrew Clark
spoke at the annual dinner of the
National Leprosy Fund, of which the
Prince of Wales is President. In the
course of his speech, the celebrated
physician remarked that, not only are
new centrei of this disease springing up,
but that the old ones are widening, and,
bearing these facts in mind, urged that
the subject of leprosy ihould be thor
oughly investigated with the two-fold
objeot of ascertaining its came and dis*
covering a remedy. It is very generally
known that India is more or less a centre
of the loathsome disease, but many peo*
pie will be surprised to learn that there
are probably a quarter of a million of
the natives of that great dependency
stricken with this fearful plague.
A writer fn Chamber's Journal draws
attention to the fact, not generally
known, that "the fair Dominion of Can-
" ada has also its Molokoi at Tracadle in
" New Brunswick." 8ixty years ago a
woman who had died from a strange
disease waB burled at Tracadle. Hear
ing of this, a doctor from a neighboring
town made a journey to Europe with the
purpose of endeavoring to discover a
patient suffering from a like disease.
By merest accident, when juit on the
point of returning home, ho discovered
aeveral cases in Norway. A report was
presented to the Canadian Board of
Health, and the conclusion arrived at
was that tho mysterious disease was
leprosy. When the corpse of tho woman
referred to wai carried to the grave a
poisonous discharge oozed through the
coffin and penetrated the shirt of one of
the bearers. That man died a leper,
and sixteen years afterwards there were
twenty such diseased persons in Tracadle. To aggravate the matter, the Provincial Government of that time do not
seem to have done their duty, and the
miserable building provided for the unfortunate penons was deliberately
burned to the ground by one of their
number.
In 1840 the lepers numbered thirty-
one, but their condition had not improved. For years the criminal folly of
the authorities failed to make proper
provision for the afflicted, and on Ootobor 4th, 1862, one of the patients, mad
with hunger, disease and deipair, burned
the living tomb to the ground. The
authorities then huddled the lepers, now
numbering thirty-six, lato a building
thirty-two foet by thirty, regardless of
sex, allowing them two changes of
clothei etch per annum. Thanks to a
French priest, however, some attention
was paid to the lepers and a now lazaretto was built in ttie following ipring,
Tliii place was a cheerless prison house,
guarded by an armed party and enclosed
within high walls. In 1866 a brighter
day dawned, and, after much negotiation, the listen of the Hotel Dieu at
Montreal took charge of the patienti at
Tracadle. The sisters entered upon
their good work in 1868, and a new regime was instituted, the gloom and
sombre prison air of the place giving
place to a more cheerful aspect. Still
all was not right until 1880, when the
Dominion Government took the control
of the place into its keeping, and at once
abolished the petty red tapeiim which
the Provincial authorities had delighted
to exercise. The sisters were given
absolute control, and the result hai
been satisfactory in every way.
This in substance is the story of our
Canadian leprosy hospital, as detailed in
the pagea of the magazine referred to,
and to every Canadian it must be a
matter of pride to learn that the Lazaretto of Tracadle ia reported to be second
to none iu the world for the patience,
charity and good management with
which it is conducted.
The vote of 22 to 8 by which the North
Dakota Senate passed the bill for creating in that State a branch of the Louisiana lottery has had a itunning and bewildering effect all over the country,sayi
the Post-Intelligencer, which enlarges up
pon the subject as follows: "There is
" scarcely a State in the Union, certain*
" ly none of the newly admitted Statei,
" nor any which lie west of the Missis-
" lippi, from which luch news would
" have been more startling or unexpect-
" ed. It hai been a popular assumption
" that North Dakota's population is con-
" spicuously intelligent, staid and cir-
" cumipect. This assumption was
" strengthened in the general estimation
" by the unanimity with which prohlbi-
" tion was adopted as a constitutional
" provision and the stringency of the
" laws for putting that provision into
" execution. But it appears that the
" lottery scheme hai been most ingeni-
" ously worked up. The character of
" the people for sobriety and respecta-
" bility was played upon to impress the
" uselessnesl of including lotteries into
" the prohibitive features of the conati-
" tution. And then, after the adoption
" of a constitution with the usual prohi-
" bitlon of lotteries omitted, the next
" thing waa to enlarge upon and greatly
" magnify the distress of the farmers
" and the impossibility of sustaining the
" Government by the usual means of
" taxation. The schemers were indus-
" trioUB and indefatigable, not scrupling
" to put a little money 'where it would
" do the most good,' while the respect-
" able elements of society folded their
" hands and took a complacent nap, in
"which they never dreamed suchathing
" could be possible. All of which goei
" to prove that not only the price of lib-
" erty, but of good Government and im-
" munity from pernicious legislation, ii
" eternal vigilance." Surely the people
who have been thus shamelessly hood*
winked aud outraged by their legislators
will be heard from on this lottery ques*
tion.

A PILLOW TRAGEDY.
The Belated Oonteaalon or One of
the Quilty Conspirators.
Uur village wat pretty small when T
flrat oame to lt. But then, aa far as that
is concerned, I wai pretty small myself,
and bo In every way suited the village.
tn thinking over my own youthful days
it Boomed to me a pity that the history
of that village Bhould go unrecorded for
want of a historian. So I propose, in
taokof a bettoi person coming forward,
to write aome of the particulars of
the history of this quiet vlllago.
1 shall oall It Bruceville, because
lhat wu not Its name, and yet it
Is near enough the name to be recognised by any of Its eminent citizens,
while the assumed tltlo, 1 hope, will
protect me If au (-..asparated populace
Ahould undertake to bring a libel suit
against me, or to take into the courts of
i&wany of the misdeeds that 1 shall
nave the painful duty of chronicling or
confessing.
It la generally supposed that the young
men, or boys, rather, of the cities are
very much worse, as far aB puro wicked-
noss is concerned, than tho innocent
youth who residea ln tbe country or In a
small village. My own experience does
not bear out thla popular idea. If there
•ixists in this world any gang of youngsters who moro richly deserved the
colls of a prison than we did I havo yet
to boar of them. I had some aspirations
myself to being tho loader of this gang
of boys, but I have to admit that there
wero many among us who could astonish
oven me In suggesting now and ontor-
mining crimes which wero to bo committed on the BUflerlng inhabitants of
that village.
Bruceville is situated in Western Canada, about two miles back from Lake
Brio. The village now boasts ot a vory
flno brick school, and I beliovo thore is
a principal there and assistant teachers,
and a great many other things tbat wero
not prevalent when I was a boy. 1 went
to the first school that was ever openod
at Hruoeville, and that was the first
school I ever went to myself. The
teacher was a young woman who had
amassed a great deal of knowledgo apparently; at least wo thought so at tho
time, and tho people of tbo village rented the lower story of a rosidenoe for a
school-house. I havo rathor dim recollections of my strugglo with learning
through the first book. I vaguely remember being trounced onco or twice,
but I have no recollection as to what the
trouble was. I know that ovon at that
Htrly time I waB marked as being a boy
wno, If he kept on in tlm way ho had
•taried, waB going to develop into a veritable monster of wickedness. I can remember that thero was a certain feeling
among aome of us that we were not at
nil the favorites of thia teaoher, and I
believe to this day tbat the teacher did
not have the tact to conceal her preferences. This partiality waB brought to a
climax one summer's day by her inviting all her favorito pupils up to bor
bouse, or the house of her father, to engage in the wild dissipation of games
and cracking nuts, and auch like hilarious enjoyment. Four or five of us were
not invited, and that night I went early
to bed. When the young scoundrels of
the village wanted to start out on a career of depredations we always wont to
bed early. Each of the boys had a par
tloular way of getting out of the houso
unknown to tne othei inmates, and my
own means of exit was crawling through
the window on to tbe kitchen root,
getting down that on the top ot a
board fence, and then from tbat to the
ground. We always collected each other by mysterious whistles. Imitations
from tne whip-poor-will or quail, and In
going to our rendezvous we skirted
along the fence or ln the dark shadows
of buildings, crouching down with our
caps drawn over our eyes. This was to
avoid possible discovery, although thero
was no person ln creation that would
have thought any thing of lt If he had
met ua right In the middle of the stroet
anyhow. Still, there was a certain delight ln making a sneak for it, and on
thia particular occasion four or five of
us had gathered tor the purpose of
breaking up that party at the teacher's
house. The teacher belonged to a large
family of pioneers who bad scattered
around that neighborhood. As a number of the family had the samo names,
both flrat and second, various adjectives
were used to designate the particular
une meant. ller father was known aa
"Swampy John," because ho lived on
the other aide of the swamp, about half
a mile distant from the village. Anothor relative was called "Hilly" John,
tiocaiiHO he lived on the brow of a hill.
Tho swemp through which we had to
pasa to got to Swampy John's house waa
a weird, lonesome nlace, whioh took at
jeait six boys, togothor, oach protesting
that he was not the leaat afraid, to oross
lt Any single boy, or any two of ua
for that matter, would have willingly
ohoson to go to perdition rathor than to
cross that switmp ln the nighttime. But
the main road tbat passed through tho
village passed through the swamp, and
the first houBe on tho othor side was
Swampy John's. After a whispered
consultation tt was resolved tbat we
should make up a swamp ghost with
which to scare the life out of the teaoher and the scholars. It may be mentioned that on the occasion of this
party the teacher's father and
mother were away visltinft somewhere,
and would not be bock that
night. Thla we bod learned from the
fortunate invited pupils, who told it aB
an indioatlon that Joy would be uncon*
fined and that there would be no older
heads present to Interfere with tbe
amusement. The ghost waa made up as
follows: A pillow was taken and a string
tied around the middle ot it Then
blaok pieces of oloth were pinned to represent mouth, nose and eyei. A piece
of red flannel was pinned to the black
mouth bo that It hung out In t picturesque fashion and added to the attractiveness of tho pillow as we had fixed lt.
A rope waB thon tied around tbe con-
tor of the pillow to give to it a general
resemblance to a man being hanged, aud
with this all tbe conspirators started
along tho road that led through tho big
iwamp. Tbe terrors of the swamp may
be understood when 1 say, as we passed
along tho lonesome road tbat was out
through it, we all became terrorized at
our own pillow, and one of the weaker
brethren became so frightened that he
started back, but realising the faot that
be would bave to tread the rest of the
fearful way alone he stuck by Us, being
less afraid to be in our company even
with tbe frightful ghost that we had
wltb us, tban to go baok to the village
alone. When we cautiously climbed
over the fence and got into the yard that
surrounded Swampy John's houso wo
crawled up along tne fence to the residence Itself. Of course we might easily
bave gone ln by the gate and up the
walk, but tbat wouldn't have bad tho
daredevil effect that we wished to produce even among ourselves. The houae
waa gayly lighted up, and the
noise of revelry could be beard. The
curtains in the front bad beon pulled
down, but the side window was curtain-
loss, and there we arranged our nefarious business. A pole was stuck up
against the house, to which'the rope
waa tied that suspended the frightful
looking pillow, and tbe pillow was thon
swung to and fro, so that lt would beat
gently against the window-pane The
effects of a great scheme aro never
noticeable until the scheme Itself tr
tried. Wo now saw that wo should have
brought a shoot with us to wraparound
the lower part of tho pillow, uo as to
glvo a more realistic view to our ghost.
Taking down tho pole again and lower
ing the rope somewhat. It was so ar
ranged that the bead ot the apparition
appeared just above tho window-sill,
and thero was nothing below to Intimate
that the ghost came to an abrupt conclusion, and nothing to show au investigating porson tnat it was a plliow and
not a ghost. Over tbe sill of every window a conspirator was peering In to see
who would first notice the apparition at
tbe uncurtained pane When it was discovered an unearthly shrink rent the
air. 1 novor know who It was that saw
It first or who lt was that gavo the
shriek. But instantly every eyo was
directed to tbe terribln specter at the
window. One universal howl went up.
from tho guosts. Tho littlo girls and
littlo boys clung around the shirts of
tbe school-mistress, und she—for she
must havo been only a young girl herself, although wo thought her at that
time tho embodiment ot old age and
wisdom—was juat as frightened aa the
rest. She stared at tho apparition with
dilated eyes and white face. I bad a
very good view of ber and 1 thought for
the moment sho was going to faint.
The children all around her wore screaming and crying and howling for help
when there was no help Hut the school-
ma'am was clear grit. Like the other
lady of tho adage, she did not believe in
ghosts, but she was afruid of thom. She
knew the lonely situation of the house
and realized the fuct thut it would still
be an hour or two before the first of tho
parents camo with lanterns to bring
homo their children. She knew thut if
the children wore not calmed down
there wouldn't be any of thom to bring
home boforo another ton mi nines. So
Bho quickly shook her skirts (reo from
tho clinging youngstors, aud (or a
moment we thought that sho wus going
to como out und suatu'r us, and then
our hotirla stood still. Sho sprang to
the door and threw it wido open, and
tbo noxt word she spoke struck terror
into tho hearts of tlie villainous conspirators.
"lioro, Tigor! Here, Tlgorl" she
shouted, and a groat big dog bounded
ln from tho kitchen, while we broko in
dismay for tho fence at tho roud. Then
thore were screams nnd yells from an
entirely opposito party. Tiger, who
was a great, big, brutal animal, sprang
out into tho darkness and instantly
followed tlie fleeing mob. He tooii away
most o( my wearing apparel as 1
scrambled over thB fence. Every one
of usBiifforod moro or less, and we ran
tho wholo way through the swamp road
into tho village. Then wo thought
with terror, at last I did, that the pillow
was still hanging at the window.
The next day tho question In the
quiet village was: "Who lost a pillow?"
The poople of tho village were scandalized at the outrage that had boon committed, and overy one counted pillows.
Alas! and alas I lu our house there was
one pillow short, and many a time next
day 1 wished I had that pillow to sit
down on,—Luke Sharp, In Detroit Free
Press.

How Bread Ia Made In Different Countries of Alia.
The bread of different Asiatic nations
la worthy of mention. In China, India,
Japan and Corea by no means all the
people llvo upon rice. In North China
muoh wheat is used, and Northorn India
is one of the best wheat-growing districts
of tbe world. Tho Chineso boll all their
bread instead of baking it, or If baked
at all it is browned after boiling. In
Egypt tho bread of the lowest classes is
largely mado of sorghum seed, and In
North India and North China millet is
largolyusod. Both Chinese and Japanese are fond of sweet cake, and in Japan
opo of tho most popular cakes ls almost
exactly like our sponge cako. It Ib Bald
to bave beon brought over from Holland
by the Dutch Christians when they oame
to Japan centuries ago, and you will now
find it all over tho oountry. The Turks
are very fond of sweet cake, and the
sweet-cake poddlerB of Cairo and Constantinople are the noisiest ot their kind.
It is the same with candy as It Is with
cake. Somo of the best candy I have
ever oaten I bought ot a pig-tailed mer
ohant in the Chinese oity ot Peking. He
had nut oandy of all kinds, and he told
me he Imported somo of his nuts from
Mongolia for his shop. Tho Smyrna fig
paste ts noted the world over, and you
will find tt in every confectioner's store
ln the country. Turkish nugat Is one of
the favorite dainties of the harem, and
tt tastes better when you eat lt fresh at
Constantinople than when it ta atx
months old and is Bold in Amerioa. At a
dinner whioh I once attended In upper
Egypt we had a course of aandy between
eaoh one of the other courses, and we
had at least ten desserts during the meal.

BALD-HEADED  DOCTORS.
Advantages They Seem to Bave Over
Thoae with Thick Hair.
The London Medloal Press and Circular has tbe following: "A medical correspondent contributes to a lay contemporary some remarks upon his profession,
which, although in some respects containing a good deal of truth, are never
tbeleaa confessedly amusing. His main
objeot In view ts to show that he. has
made a gross mistake in joining the
ranks of mediolne, instead of investing
his money, which had been spent upon
his education, in some business concern-
He describes himself as a failure, and
this after having worked exceedingly
hard at his profession.
"Tbe oause of his failure he attributes to the absence of two things, whioh
are chiefly essential to success ln the
medical profession. These, he asserts,
are, in the flrat plaoe, money, and, in
tho Becond, a bald head. I have no
money, and my hair is inconveniently
thick. Incipient baldness gives the appearance of a 'high and dome-like forehead,' and inspires the ladies with confidence. The fortunate possessor of this
beautiful feature is pronounced 'very
■.lever,' whieh settles the matter. Besides, it is almost Indispensable for a
■rood bedside manner.' All mymedlcal
(rlends who are getting on well have
•iither money or bald heads; most of
ihom have both.
"It Is no doubt very muoh to the advantage of a young practitioner to exhibit a 'modern antique' appearanoe, and
mthlng contributes so greatly to this
ml as a head whioh is innocent of hair.
There is a real eommeroial value in a
rial J bead, and this value is by no means
■unfilled to tbe medioal profession.
tVhatever advantages, however, it may
■lonferona 'businoss young man,'to a
medloal man a fair estimate under favorablo circumstances would be, at the
lowest, Ave hundred a year. The assumption of age and ripe philosophy
whioh a man oan safely indulge in whose
hair follicles upon the top of his bead
have In early manhood undergone a process of fatty degeneration, leaving a
white expanse of reflecting integument,
is a matter of common observation, The
publio are impressed by the appearanoe
of things under these circumstances; a
bald head will carry conviotion to tbelr
minds when nothing else will, saving,
perhaps, a flowing beard.
"Even the lower animals are not Insensible to its attractions. It is recorded
that an ostrloh once sat down upon the
bald head of an Englishman, under tbe
Impression that lt was an egg whioh required hatching. The circumstances
were favorable to this slight error of
judgment, and the sagacious bird muat
be aoquitted of having purpoaely attempted to play'a praotlcal joke. But
In this matter, as ln all things else In
lite, appearances are every thing. No
one knows better the value of a bald
head than he who possesses it—at all
events tn medicine; but how strangely
oaptlouB Ib nature, for while one man,
greatly to his worldly prosperity, conveniently finds his head becoming bald,
another has to sook consolation whero
bo can under tbe depressing circumstances of knowing that his head is tho
oniy place upon which he can not get
half to grow." 	
SIMPLE  EXPERIMENTS.
How to Make Hair Stand on Et
Hade to Float.
Oet an ordinary tumbler filled to the
brim with water and on it plaoo a sheet
of paper so that the fhrface of the water
may be completely covered. Now place
one hand on the paper and with the
other invert the glass. Then remove
your hand from the paper and tho wator will not fall out, owing to the upward pressure of the atmosphere.
Again, take a piece of thiok brown
paper about a foot square and heat it at
tbe flro. When hot place tt on the table and rub it wtth a clothes brush for
about half a minuto. Then bold the
brown paper over some small light bodiea— little pieces of blotting paper will
do—and the light bodies will jump
about In a most excited manner.
If the brown paper be held over Borne-
body's head, several hairs will immediately Btand on their ends, greatly to the
amusement of the spectators.
Another even more striking experiment, and not so generally known, is
performed as follows: Get any piece of
wood, not too thick, about a foot long,
and lay it on tho table in such a position
that half of tt projects over the edge of
tho tablo. Plaoe a broad book on that
part of lt whioh is on the table. Strike
the projecting part of the wood sharply
with a strong stick or a poker, and the
piece of wood will smash tn two. You
should strike very sharply and without
hesitation < r the experiment may fail,
and your book and wood be hurled to
the other side of the room.
One more experiment ls, perhaps, a
little harder to perform than the preceding, but I have seen several persons
succeed with ease. Get a glass of water
and a needle and try to make the needle
float All that ts required is a little
skill. In the same way ordinary nibs
can he floated In water. If you have a
magnet—a penny one will do—and rub
It on the needle before the latter is
placed ln the water, It will point like a
compass to tbe magnetic pole when
floating, no mattor what way It may
point when flnt placed tn the liquid.
Amusing and Characteristic.
A friend who has juat roturnod from
Paris tells me an amusing and characteristic anecdote. During tho recent exposition there was a littlo railroad, fivo
miles in length, running around the
grounds. Tbe tracks ran ln and out
among the trees and buildings, and so
near them that a pas&ongor's head or
arm thrust out of the window was ln
danger of being knocked off. To prevent aocldonts of this sort warnings
woro printed on largo posters and lacked
up at Intervals of a few yards along tbo
ontire track. They woro printed ln almoat every known language, including
Asiatic and African tongues, shorthand
and Volapuk. My frlond counted ovet
thirty languages and dialects. You
would bave supposed that none was
omitted in such a list. But there was
one omission, and a vory Important ono.
Not a atnglo word of warning was printed In Gdrmanl Home ono said to the
manager ot tho road; "It looks to mu ns
though yon didn't care whothor the Germans got their beads and arms knocked
off or not." fie smilod aqulotsmilo and
replied; "It does look that way, suro
rmough."--Crltic.	
LINCOLN'S  ANCESTORS.
FacU Learned from tlio Archives of Merit*
County, l'a.
Among the Inmates of the county
almshouse ls John Lincoln, aged about
seventy-flvo years. He ls a descendant
of lho same family to whioh lho doud
Presidont belougt-d. Ho huS been here
for several yvtita, and It la known that
In his yuung il.tys hu was wealthy, having Inherited a oonslderalili) sum of
money from tbo family. Ho was, however, a lovor of fast horses uud foxhunting and the sport was too much for
blm and be aoon toll intoevll ways.
Going from bad to worse, he eventually
becamo a hostler at a country hotel.
Becoming old, ho was quickly incapacitated for work and was then sent to the
poorhouso. Researches among tho archives of Berks County show that tho
Lincoln family came from Mussaohu-
setts and Bottled ln Olcy township, this
oounty, some time prior to 17115. They
soon became prominent citizens in that
and adjoining townships. Tho grandfather of President Lincoln wont from
here to Virginia and thonce to Kentucky,
aooording to authentic records. They
were among the largest taxpayers a
century ago, and the names of Mordocal,
John and Abraham aro common ones on
the records and tax levies. Abraham
Lincoln, a grandunole ot the martyr
President, tho records show, was a county commissioner tn 1778. Ten years
later ho was eleoted to the Legislature
and served four years. Subsequently he
was a justice ot the peace and ex-ofllolo
ono of tho justices of the quarter sessions court. Many undent documents
oan be found bearing his signature.—

Real  Eitate Is Active.
Every day the real estate market is
showing additional signs of activity, and
sales of city property are being concluded almost every hour. There is a large
quantity of land on sale at very reasonable prices, and the knowing ones are
picking up (jood bargains in all parts
of the townsite. During the last seven
days Messrs. Major ana Pearson have
disposed of a little more than $20,000
worth of city property, and they have
many more sales under arrangement. It
is acknowledged that there will be an
advance of fully 60 per cent this year in
city property.^       	
Bring Hack the Ladders.
Chief Ackerman would feel indebted
to the parties who borrowed the ladders
from the Udder truck if they will return

how soon they may be required. The

nearly two months, and the wonder is
that any of the ladders are left, Three
ladders are missing, and action will be
taken against the persons in whose possession they are found if this notice tails
to produce the desired effect. The brigade is certainly not very well equipped
and it is rather a mean trick to deprive

The intimation that the Chief of

and their friends thiB morning, four of
them taking the road to Vancouver,
where, no doubt, they will be given a
grand reception by the police. There
are only a few more idle characters in
town, and these are being watched by
the police, and on the first opportunity
they also will be given notice to quit.
Westminster is a bod place for trumps;
the people don't appreciate them, and

VOLUME Vni-No. 17.
A BOLD BURGLARY.
Two Hundred I»ollars Worth flMvatcliea
Stolen from a Front St. Storo
this Horning.
One of the boldest snd most extensive
burglaries committed in Westminster
in a long time was accomplished at an
early hour this morning. The store burglarized was that of Mr. John E. Lord,
on Front street. At 8 o'clock this morning Constable Anderson passed down
Front street and at that time everything
was quiet, and Mr. Lord's show window
was intact. He proceeded as far as the
Merchant's Hotel, returning by Columbia and Begbie to Front Btreet. On
reaching Mr. Lord's store at exactly
3:30 o'clock, the constable noticed that
the window had been broken and a number of watches abstracted. He quickly
alarmed the young man who sleeps over
the store, and an investigation followed.
It was found that a number of watches
and other jewelry, to the value of $250
had been abstracted, butno further trace
of the burglar could be found. The burglary was very neatly executed, and
everything connected with it tends to
show that the robber was an expert.
A diamond was used to cut the window
glass, the piece knocked inwards with a
sharp tap, and there lay the watches as
convenient to the hand as if there had
never been a glass in the window. It
was only the work of a few seconds to
gather up the articles and make off with
them. The whole time occupied in
committing the burglary probably did
not exceed two minutes.
Constable Carty, whose round is on
Columbia street, wob informed of the occurrence, and he, with Constable Anderson promptly paid a visit to the Swamp,
and searched all suspected cabins. Nothing was found, however, and the searchers after leaving no doubtful spot un-
visited returned to their beats. Chief
Pearce had the case in hand to-day, and
he hopes to ruu the burglar to earth.
The fact that Mr. Lord repeatedly left
valuable watches in the show window,
would make it appear that he courted
burglary, but, of course, he did not, and

Pretty Hard Lines.
It is considered -pretty hard lines by
the butchers when they are obliged to
go outside of the Province to find their
supply of mutton, and certainly it looks
odd for a country like British Columbia,
with its millions of acres of the finest
grazing lands in the world, to be unable
to raise a sufficient number of sheep to

The Morning Gazette, a new daily published for the first time this week at
Sehome, Wash., has found its way to
our table. The Gazette is a neat little
four-page six-column journal, full of
interesting local and editorial matter,
and showing a good telegraph service.
The new paper ought to succeed, as the
growing cities on Bellingham Bay will
Boon be able to support two or three
good dailies.
Ab an evidence of the persuasive powers of our February sunshine, a lusty
dandelion in full bloom was laid on our
table to-day by Mr. A. E. Hill, C. E.,
who plucked the blossom from a bank
on his way down town. It will be sent
east to excite the envy of the shivering
mortals who are enjoying the height of
the tobbogganing season, while "spring,
gentle spring," is exciting the rural
poet to a wild frenzy in the "gem of the
west."
The game market shows signs of coming Inactivity, and only a few pairs of
ducks are left to tell the tale of a busy
season. Never in the history of WestminBter havo so many wild geese and
ducks been bought and sold as during
tbe past season. Increased population
accounts for this to a great extent, but
the demand from outside points has also
been very large. With the end of this
month wild fowl will be prohibited on
the market.
Some twenty members of the Knights
of Pythias order went over to Vancouver
from this city last evening to attend the
dedication ceremonies of the fine K. of
P. hall in tho Dunn-Miller block. Nearly
a hundred and fifty members of the order took part in the dedication, after
which all repaired to the International
Hotel, where an excellent spread wob
discussed. A pleasant evening was spent
in toast drinking and speech making,
and the Westminster contingent returned home thiB morning highly delighted
with their entertainment.
Word was received yesterday that the
Skidgate had broken ner shaft and was
drifting in tho Gulf. The only boat on
board was taken by the two men of the
crew wbo came to this city for assistance. There are two men on board,
the captain and another man, and considerable anxiety - is felt as to their
safety. The Etta White went out last
evening to find the Skidgate and tow her
back to the city. The boat is further
imperilled by the heavy gale blowing on
the Gulf. The Agnes, which was caught
in It had to lie to in a cove for shelter.—
News-Advertiser.
In accordance with one of the rules of
the Order, the members of the Uniform
Rank, Knights of Pythias in this city,
turned out for annual public parade this
afternoon. They gathered at Conllu's
hall, Pandora street, at 3 p.m., and
under command of Capt. Behnsen, were
put through a very creditable drill.
Headed by their band, the plumed
Knights marched down Douglas to Fort
street, on to Government aud back to
the hall, making a very brave show,
the neat uniforms and shining swords
Betting off the manly forms of the marchers to perfection. Much attention was
given the parade by the public—Yesterday's Times.
Washington people have run" short of
mutton this year, and for fully a month
the supply from these Btates has ceased.
California has now been called upon to
supply the demand, and last night the
first consignment of mutton to reach the
city in 30 days, came to hand, being
consigned to Dickinson & Co., and 8.

and these were taken up in a very short

street is constantly patrolled. Chief
Pearce says he haB frequently warned
Mr. Lord to removo the watches from
the window at night, but the warning
was unheeded, with the result that much
valuable property has been stolen.
Three of the cases in which the stolen
watches lay were found this forenoon,
one on Front street, another on McKenzie and the lust at the corner of Mary
and Columbia streets. The burglar evidently did not wish to be encumbered
with useless baggage. Word of the burglary has been telegraphed all over the
country, and there are good chances of
the guilty party being caught.

Ottawa, Feb. 20.—The doora ol the
Houie were not opened to the public
or pren until 3:66 thli afternoon. The
reasons were the claims of several members that the ventilation of the present
house is defective, and that a new hall
should be erected. An enlivened discussion arose, and many hard words
were said.
Hon. Peter Mitehell claimed that all
seats should be freo to the public except
those on the floor of the house and the
press galleries. He objected to the system of issuing tickets by tho speakor,
tbe sergeant-at-armsand others. Questions by members are now being read
and answered.
Hon. Peter Mitchell is to resume tho
debate on the dual language question.

Letters received from Barkerville state
that tho blaze which destroyed the Reduction Works is supposed to have originated from a fire which had been mode
outside the buildings to thaw out a
water pipe. The party in charge says he
took the precaution to throw water over
tho Sre and to effectually put it out, as
he thought, but as there had been no
other fire in that part of the works for
three days it must have blazed up again
and set the buildings on fire.
The result of the tests which had been
made were very satisfactory and everybody was naturally in high sp*itsover
the prospect of a ten stamp mill being
erected at once and a boom in mining

works has naturally caused » corresponding reaction and depression of spirits.
Portions of the work are believed not to
be injured but the costof rebuilding and

[i-Voiii Our Own Correspondent.]
Wednesday's   Proceedings.
Mr. Speaker took the chair at 2:16 p.
ni.
Prayers by the ttt. Rev. Bishop
Cridge.
Col. Baker rose to a question of privilege and said he had been inisreported
in the Colonist's report of Tuesday's proceedings in reference to tho Indians of
Kootenay. He had said that the Lilian reserve at Kootenay would revert
to the province in case of the Indians
dying out; not that the Indians were
dying out now.
Mr. Cunningham presented the petition of G. de Wolf and W. Crickmay,
asking permission to incorporate to use
the waters of Seymour and other creeks
to generate electricity.
Mr. Martin presented a petition from
E. E. Scott, asking for mining and water
privileges opposite Yale, from the Okanagon and Kootenay Railway aud tbe
Vancouver Water Works Company, applying for incorporation.
The petition of Robert Dexter wbb
read and received.
The petition of the City of Vancouver
re amendments to incorporation
read and received.
Mr. Speaker said this petition was
almost irregular enough to be ruled out
of order as it was not signed.
The petition from J. A. Johnson and
others, re construction of a bridge across
the Chilcoton River, was ruled out of
order as it aBked for an appropriation.
The petitions of the Nelson and Kootenay Railway, West Kootenay Railway
and South Kootenay Railway were read
and received.
The petition of the Fraser River Gold
Gravel Syndicate Co. was read and
received.
Mr. Smith asked leave to introduce a
Bill intitled an "Act to amend the
Homestead Act.'"
Bill read a first time and second read-
ng set for Friday next.
Mr. Duck moved, seconued by Mr.
Martin, the following resolution:
That a select committee be appointed
to enquire into the claim of Robert Dexter when employed as foreman on the
cofferdam at Esquimalt, between the 1st
November, 1878, and the 31stJulv, 1879;
said committee to be composed of Messrs.
Martin, Allen, Grant, Orr, and the
mover, and to have power to call for
persons and papers to report to this
House.   Carried.
Mr. Smith asked leave to withdraw
the following resolution for the presont,
as there was some mistake in it. That
the House resolve itself into Committee
of the Whole to consider the following
resolution:
"That it is desirable to impose _
license fee upon every person engaged
in the business of buying or selling deer.
skins, of one hundred and fifty dollars
for every six months." Leave granted.
House weut into adjourned committee
on the Bush Fire Bill, Mr. Cowan lu the
chair. Hon. John Robson made some
tolling points on the question of half tho
fino to the informer. He said that the
very fact of this regulation would prevent many men from informing as tbey
would be ashamed to take the money;
and if they did get it would give it to
some charity aud be compelled to have
it published in the newspapers to Bet
himself right before the people of his
distriot, The entire fine in his opinion
should go into the provincial treasury.
Mr. Haslam said that last year a party
of ministers of the gospel started a big
fire in the woods. Hon. John Robson—
What? Mr. Haslam reiterated his
statement and said it was not done
through Ignorance of the law, but gross
carelessness.
Hon. John Robson said the government would be asked to make a vote for
the purpose of carrying out extensive
exploratory expeditions and for setting
out timber lands as opposed to lands
suitable for settlement. He had not
said, as several honorable gentlemen
seemed to have thought, that the government would appoint bush rangers.
Such a service was possible under the
circumstances that would be brought
about aftor the explorations mentioned
above had been completed. He did not
think this bill could bo carried out at
present.
Committee rose and reported the bill
complete with amendments.   The bill
will be considered at next sitting of
the house.
Mr. Cunningham asked leave to intro
duce a bill to incorporate the Paciiic
Const Fire Insurance Company. Bill
read a first time and referred to the
committee ou standing orders and private bills.
Mr. Ladner moved the second reading
of the Supreme Court Amendment Bill.
Hon. Mr. Pooley said he thought there
would be no objection to this amendment if Mr. Ladner's own constituents
were agreeable.
Mr. Ladnor said that a big majority of
his constituents had requested this action and he was satisfied the community
would benefit largely.
Bill read a second time und sent to
committee, Mr. Anderson in the chair.
Committee rose and reported bill complete without amendments. Report
will be considered at next sitting of the
house. The amendment reads subjection c of Bee. 36 is hereby amended by
striking out the word ''May" in the
second line thereof, and inserting in lieu
thereof the word "June."
Hon. Johu Robson bfought down the
report of the Minister of Mines.
Mr. Speaker read the following ruling:
I find that the bill to enable tbe trustees
of the Royal Columbian Hospital to sell
certain properties and dispose of the
proceeds thereof was out of order, not
having been introduced by a message
from the Lieut.-Governor. It must
either come in on a message from the
Lieut,-Governor or as a private bill.
The bill No. 22 entitled an Act to enable
the Trusiees of the Royal Columbian
Hospital to sell certain lands and to
provide for the appropriatloii of the proceeds thereof, proposes to amend or
continue an act passed at the last session of this House, which act was introduced by message from the Lieut.-
Governor. "May 8th edition, page
713, divides private bills into two classes.
To the first of these classes Ib relegated
bills affecting Crown, church, corporation property or property held in trust
for public or charitable purposes, and
bills for continuing or amending until
passed for any of the purposes included
in this or the second class, when no
further work than such as waB authorized by some former act is proposed to be
made. The bill before me seeks te enable the trustees of the Royal Columbian
Hospital to sell certain Crown lands held
for charitable purposes and to provide
for the appropriation of the proceeds
thereof. Moreover, it proposes to amend
or extend the powers conferred by an
act of last session, which act waB introduced by a member of the Government
upon the authority of a message from
the Lieut. -Governor. Moreover, the act
of last session "to authorise and facilitate the sale of the site of the Royal
Columbian Hospital" having a similar
scope as this bill, wae also introduced
by message from the Lieut.-Governor,
iii itB present form I am of opinion that
the bill must be ruled out of order, in
other words, it must come in as a pri*
vate bill or be introduced by message
from the Lieut.-Governor.
House adjourned at 4:30 p.m.  ifntil
p.m. next day.

important agents of good health, ill-
smelling drains, sinks or waste holea of
all kinds, being unanimously condemned as especially productive of disease;
and ill-health; examples being given of
the great need of extreme cleanliness I
and the free use of disinfectants in and
about such places. Physical cleanliness
and purity was also a very prominent
part of the discussion and it wns strongly recommended that frequent ablutions
and changes of garments be especiallj
regarded as a sure means of inducing i
good state of hygiene.
A resolution was made to the effect
