The Great Railway Accident.
• Buffalo, N.Y., Mar. 7.—A relief and
wrecking train sent to the scene of yesterday's disaster on the Luke Shore road
near Hamburg, returned to this city
about 3 this morning. It was met by a
large and anxious crowd. It brought
the first definite particulars of the disaster. The Fitch ambulance and corps
of Burgeons were also in waiting, and the
work of transferring injured persons to
the hospital was quickly accomplished.
-It is learned that all those who were
seriously injured were iu the front part
of the Pullman car nearest tbe engine.
An eye-witness of the accident gives tbe
highest praise to the big negro porter of
the car, A. E. Waldron. With great
presence of mind this man dashed into
the wreckage at much danger to himself
and succeeded in extinguishing the
lamps in the sleeper which were
flaring up ominously, and would
soon nave set the car on Are but for his
timely action, which doubtless saved
many persons from perishing by tbe fire.
The action of the sleeping car conductor,
Louis L. Test, showed bravery and cool
judgment. He was tbe first person in
the rear section of the train to notice
the coupling had parted, and lie instantly applied the air brake by means of the
rope running through the car, but it
failed to work. He ran through three
cars and made similar efforts, but the
safety apparatus was disabled in all. As
a last resort he turned to the hand
brakes and was screwing the nearest one
up to the highest notch when the crash
of the disaster came. It is learned
that some coupling bad been
found parted at Dunkirk, and it
waB patched up there though tbe air
brake and steam tubes were not connected. One of the porters made the
remark that tbe occupants of all the
sleepers would have to go through to
Buffalo in unhealed cars.
Before the relief train left for Buffalo
the track had been cleared of wreckage.
The baggage car containing the dead
was not brought to this city at the same
time as the train carrying tne surviving
passengers, but came in at a late hour.
The correct list of casualties give 7 killed
and 17 injured.
One of the saddest incidents ever recorded In the annals of railroad disaster
waa the death of Mrs. Baucaus, a handsome young bride of Saratoga. Her
l»dy was horribly bruised and skull
crushed. Mr. Bancaus is at the hospital
here in a state of frenzy bordering on
insanity. The doctors say it will be a
miracle if he ever recovers his reason.
Mr. and Mrs. Bancaus had beeu spending their honeymoon and had beeu married only a few weeks. When the accident occurred Mrs. Bancaus was pinned
in the wreck and her husband was injured about the legs and head, but his
pains were nothing to him as compared
with the agony he fell for his wife. She
was brought iuto the sleeper when extricated, and the doctors did all in their
power, but she remained unconscious.
The poor man seemed indifferent to his
own sufferings, and every few minutes
{umped up from his seat to yet a look at
lis wife, who was rolled up in blankets
and lay stretched across a double seat.
The doctors restrained him by keeping
him constantly informed of her condition, but the suspense waa too much
and the wretched man jumped up, brushed the doctor aside and folded Ills arms
about the dying woman. "She's cold,"
he cried in despair, glancing pitifully at
the physicians. "No she's living yet,"
answered one of them. The devotion of
the broken hearted husband was touching in the extreme. He refused to be
led away, and clung to the side of his
unconscious wife kissing her bleeding
lips and urging on the doctors to further
efforts to save her life. The wounded
woman died, however.at 2:30 o'clock, aa
the train was slowly moving into Buffalo. 	
Hanged for Murder.
Charleston, West Va., Mar. 7.—Felix
Kaiup wai? hanged in jail here this
morning for murdering his daughter
Mary and son William on December 4,
1889, whom he accused of stealing. He
died indifferently but penitent.
A Brutal Murderer.
Roseville, Cala., Mar. 7.—Last night
a murder was committed about six
miles south of of here. A man by the
name of Charles Freeman took from his
sick bed a man commonly known as
"Shorty." He stuck him head first into
a water barrel and held him there until
life was extinct. A man named Archy
Wilkes came to the assistance of
"Shorty" but was knocked down hy
Freeman, who jumped upon bim and
alao bit hia left ear nearly off. Freeman
then procured a shot gun and and told
Wilkes if he did not look out he would
kill hiin too. A bitter feeling exists
against Freeman and there is a rumor
of lynching. Constable Lainphrey, of
Roseville, lias airested Freeman and
lodged him in jail.

A Great Failure.
New York, Mar. 7.—Monroe Eckstein
& Co., brewers ot Four Corners bave
made an assignment, giving preferences
aggregating $123,000. They were rated
at from $500,000 to $1,000,000. The firm
of Monroe Eckstein & Co. was composed
of Monroe Eckstein and LeoWartheimer.
Mr. Wartheiiner has been the head of
the firm of L. & E. Wartheimer, of San
Francisco, wholesale tobacco dealers, for
the past 25 year, and supplied money
and credit for the brewery business. In
June, 1889, Monroe Eckstein died and
the business continued without change.
On Monday last tbe widow of E.
Wartheimer applied for a receiver
for the property of L. & E.
Wartheimer hi order to liquidate
the affairs on the ground that a continuation of business after the death of her
husband was not authorized. This receivership was an unexpected blow to tbe
firm and cut off tbe credit and that of
the brewery. In consequence of this assignment made, including the co-partner property as well as the interest of
Leo in Sau Francisco. Tbe concern's indebtedness of the brewery is about $400,*
000, and that of Leo individually $250,-
000. Louis Adler, oue of the assignees,
will furnish an indeinity bond, and continue the brewing business. He says
the total amount involved is between
$500,000 aud $800,000 most of whicli is
commercial paper. The amount of as*
sets cannot yet be given.

A Mystery Unravelled.
Last December the dead bodyof a man
was found between Ferndale and Whatcom. An inquest was held, and tbe
finding of the jury wus that the deceased
had come to his death by wounds inflicted by a knife, but in whose hands it
was not known. He was described aa 5
feet 10 inches in height, weight 170 lbs.,
regular features, dark hair, full beard,
ends of moustache discolored by the sun,
eyes a bluish grey, wore a tweed suit,
dark grey sack coat, blue check jumper.
cowhide shoes with leather strings, nud
a flat buckskin purse tied with leather
string, hud a $50 Bapk of B. C. bill and
$1 and $2 Canadian bills, had a brier
root pipe in his vest pocket and a single
bladed knife with black handle was
lying by his side. The knife and the
right hand were bloody. His bat wus
20 feet away and pools of blood were
found along the road, Other particulars
were given, which went to show that
deceased bud beeu in liquor, and he was
identified as having bought liquor in a
saloon in Sehome, where lie said he bad
a ranch and was a bachelor. The opiif-
ion waB expressed at the time that be
had been an opium smuggler and was
killed for bis money.
It has since transpired tbat a man
named Samuel McCauley, an Irishman,

December, and was looking for work. At
that time McCauley was Buffering from
the effects of drink, and his mind was
somewhat unhinged. Nothing more
was heard of him, and his absence was a
matter of considerable comment. It
was supposed that while under the influence of liquor he hud been drowned.
Yesterday, however, the above description of the man found dead noar Whatcom, published ut tbe time, was run
across lu an old newspaper, uud it tallies so closely with that uf McCauley
thnt tlie friends of the latter ut once

Cuulcv's wife and family aro still living

Washington Territory. McCauley used
to work for Mr. George Black, Hastings.

to drink. Mr. Wilson, of Kell's Landing, is going to Whut cum to investigate

Imperial Parliament.
London, March fl.—Professor James
Bryce, resuming the debate in tbo House
of Commons thisevoning, bestowed high
uralBo ou Mr. Parnell and Mr. Davitt
for the great servico they had rendered
in effecting a better state of feeling between England and Ireland. Sir Chaa.
RubboH said he could not regard tho
judges comprising the Commission aB
being free from propoBsossioiis and prejudices, nor could ho regard them as
men who ought to bavo been asked to
deal with many of tho questions referred
to them. The selection of three judges
to decide questions, chiefly of a political
aspect, was a bad precedent. He had
the greatest respect for the opinion of
the judges, on questions capable of
direct disproof, but not where they began to draw inferences. He appealed to
the Government to lift tlie question to
its proper sphere of national justice aud
national principle. Sir Richard E.
Webster defended the course he had
pursued before the Commission and declared that he had only done his duty
as a counsel. The telegrams read by
Mr. Harrington, he Baid, had been sent
for the purpose of obtaining evidence for
the defence in Mr. Parnell's libel auit
against the limea. Throughout no step
bad been taken by tbe Government in
behalf of the Timet. The Government
had aimed solely to throw the clearest light upon the doings of the leaguers,
and tbe evidence before the Commission
had entirely justified the bulk of the
accusations againat the Parnellites.
With Goud
Lisbon, March 5.—The Impartial expresses a sense of uneasiness over the
issue of the difficulty with England. The
negotiations for arbitration make uo progress and orders aro largely carried out
oi disobeyed in Africa. The Britiah
Government is growing impatient, and
In the meantime the hostility and hatred
towards English residents in Portugal is
undiminished. Violence and outrage
are only restrained by the police and
troops. The boycotting of British trade
and merchants fa unabated, end has received fresh strength from the sympathetic action at Brazilian ports.

Ottawa, March 1.—Sir John Thompson will introduce, it iB understood, at
the request of the Imperial Government,
a bill to make the disclosure of official
documents aud information by an employee of the Dominion or Provincial
Governments, to any foreign power, a
criminal offence. It Ib intended specially
to prevent the disclosure of plans of fortifications, etc.
An employee of the House of Commons spent a very unpleasant "quatre
d'heur" Wednesday morning. A matron appeared at hia office about 11
o'clock and accused him of having led
astray her 15-year-old daughter and then
sending her to a lying-in hospital In the
suburbs. The young man's denial only
made the poor mother furious and ahe
proceeded to take summary vengeance.
The young man, however, escaped from
tho room, leaving hia watch and fragments of the chain in the woman's
bands. The mother was in a hysterical
state for some time, and finally left to
consult a lawyer. If her nccount be true,
there is uo doubt the fellow will come
under the provisions of flie Charlton
Act,
The Government has agreed to reduce
the duty on limo from twenty to ten
cents per barrel.
La Minerve, Mr. Joaeph Tasse's newspaper, attacks Mr. Laurier because that

Messrs, Boisou and Manson, of Montreal, aud Hill aud Phillips, of Toronto,
accompanied by Mr. J. J. Curran, M. P.,
waited upon the minister of customs
Thursday in reference to the duty on
glasa. They want the duty on bevelled
glass reduced.
The Divorce committe of the Senate
met Wednesday morning. The applications of Christian Glover, of Burlington,
for a divorce from C. C. Glover and of
Hugh Forbes Keefer, of Vancouver,
from his wife, Rebecca Ann Keefer, both
on the ground of adultry and desertion,
were reported to the House. Three
witnesses were examined in each case,
and the charges considered proven. Mr.
J. A, GemmiU and Mr. Lazier appeared
for Mrs. Glover, and Mr. Geinmill for
Mr. Keefer.
It is stated that Mr. Brymner, of Bre-
saylor settlement near Battleford, has
decided to tako civil auit against General Middleton, Hay ter Reed, Indian
Commissioner, and Samuel Bedson,
wurdeu of Stony Mountain penitentiary,
to recover the value of furs aaid to have
bceu confuted during the rebellion.
The writs have been served on all three.
Mr. Skinner haB given notice of the
following motion: "That in the opinion
of thia House the time haa arrived wheu
the Government of the Dominion should
enter into correspondence and negotiations with the different Governments of
the West Indies and the Governments
of all the Britiah possessions iu America, with a view to establishing reciprocity in trade or natural products and
manufactured lumber between Canada
and the places referred to, and if agreeable to the said Governments of the
West Indies and other Britiah American possessions, or any of them, that
such reciprocal trade be brought about,
that the Government of tho Dominion
of Canada be requested to establish tho
same to tho extent to which they can
agree, and upon the consummation of
any such agreement that they promote
the necessary legislation and mako the
agreement law.
The Postmaster-General, iu reply to
Mr. Lmiderkin, has stated that it Ib not
the intention of the Government to reduce the fee (five cents) now paid on
registered letters. The present system,
he Baid, is working well.
Messrs. Robb, Scarth, Daly and La
Riviere, representing the Province of
Manitoba, waited upon Sir John Macdonald for tho purpose of laying bofore
bim reasons for the utilizing of the
6,800,000 acres of land granted by Parliament to the Hudson Bay Railway.
They advocated a guarantee based upon
the "land grant, as in the case of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, which repaid
the amount und was enabled to construct and complete the system. The
deputation pointed out that financial arrangements had been made, pending
the action of the Government, and also
handed in a petiton signed by a majority of the members of the House of Commons, for euch province in the Dominion. The Premier promised an early
consideration of the subject.
Diamond Cnt Diamond.
Editor Columbian.—-How can you
reconcile the actions and utterances of
the various partieB who have figured hi
the Westminster Street Railway Bill,
which is now before the Provincial Parliament. Hon. John Robson spoke and
voted against tbe anti-Chinese clauso,
against liis professed convictions, to get
even witli his enemies of the Royal city,
Scoullar and Douglas moved and aeconded a resolution nt the public meeting
diametrically opposed to their selfish
interests, knowing that the government
could not adopt thoir resolution—to prohibit Chinese labor iu B, C—which
would, if their resolution had carried in
a public meeting, have left the Government free to puss the bill without the
Chinese clause, aud thereby suit their
secret purpose. Joseph Armstrong's
resolution to prohibit Chinese labor waa
evidently designed to kill the bill, although he is a known life-long Chinese
friend. It seems aa if men are getting
so selfish and envious against one another that tho wheela of progress must
BOOU Stop. Sl'ECl'ATOR,

A COMEDY OF ERRORS.
Bv whatever motiveB tbe member lor
Yale, Mr, Martin, was actuated in bis
vigorous, and somewhat officiouB.opposi-
tion to Mr. Cunningham's amendment
to the Westminster Electric Street Railway Bill in the House, on Wednesday;
he should at least have been honest in
his arguments. This lie very palpably
was not, when he had the assurance to
try to stuff down the House and Mr.
Cunningham the bare-faced misrepre*
sentation that the resolution moved by
Mr. Seoullar and seconded by Mr. Douglas, at the meeting in this city ou Saturday night, had been carried by the
meeting, wheu it wub plainly stated in
all the published reports of the proceedings that the amendment to the resolution had been carried, and tbe resolution, of course, defeated. Mr. Martin's
ofHciousuess and deliberate misrepresentation in this matter look vory fishy. It
looks as if Martin had been eggregiously
"stuffed," at the least, by interested
parties, or dishonestly "coached" to
play the part he did. There were fair
agrttmontB that might have beeu used
ugainst the amendment, but such petty
dishonest trickery as Mr. Martin allowed himself to perpetrate cunnot be too
severely condemned.
It's a Btrange "kettle of fish" all
through, this anti-Chinese clause busi-
ness. According to our correspondent,
when Mr. Cunningham was asked by a
member if this action was taken with
the sanction of the company (a question
not altogether relevant, by the way),
Mr. Cunningham answered in effect iu
the affirmative, adding that the promoters of the bill bad expressed themselves
that they "did not care if a hundred and
" one restriction clauses were placed in
" the bill." If the actions of the promoters of tho bill, both nt the meeting
aud elsewhere, had beeu consistent with
the letter of such an expression as the
above, Mr. Cunningham might have
boen justified in telling the Houbo that
they approved of his action, but, considering that the same promoters fought
tooth und nail against the amendment
at the meeting on Saturday night, such
an expression of theirs as Mr. Cunningham quoted to the House to show their
approval (?) of his action, ahould have
been read backwards. It was rather a
stultification of himself for Mr. Cunningham to try to claim tbo support and ap-
' proval of the promoters of the street
railway for his amendment, although,
paradoxical as it may aypearon the surface, they professed to favor a much
more sweeping amendment to the bill
This, however, is a minor niatttcr. As
a matter of fact, Mr. Cunningham did
have the duly expressed approval of his
constituency at his back, and this wub
deserving of more respect and consideration than it got in the House, a fact of
which the House is likely to hear more.
The Hon. Johu Robson, by his remarks in tbe liouse, not only threw n
very crushing " wet blanket" upon Mr.
Cunningham's forlorn enterprise on
behalf of freo white labor, but showed
himself to bo a thorough cynic on antl
Chinese legislation. Freely interpreted,
his remarks meant ubout this: " There
" is uot the slightest principle as a rule
1' at the bottom of any agitation or movo*
" ment iu this Provinco against tho employment, of Chinese labor. It iB
" simply a question of dollars and cents,
" or tlieir equivalent, and tbe most
" rabid unti-Chiuese individual or cor-
" poration to-day would turn around
" and employ Chinese labor to-morrow,
" iu preference to white labor, if there-
" by money could be saved or gained."
And the honorable gentleman was not
at a loss for instances to cito in support
of his cynicism. Ho had likewise had a
very feeling personal experience of his
own—that Btill painfully ruukted under
his "boiled shirt"—in illustration of the
fickleness of the populace ou this much
abused question. Still, in spite of his
loss of faith in the integrity and single
mindeduess of the average anti-Chinese
agitator, the Premier wound up by assuring bis hearers that " he had never
" onco changed his views on this sub*
" ject, and he was still strongly of the
,J opinion that the Chinese were a most
" undesirable class and were not wanted
11 in this country at all." It strikes us
there is a surprising unanimity of sentiment in thiB abstract way of putting
the case, among the representatives of
tho people particularly. Even Mr. Martin was an anti-Chinese mnn on general
principles, and Mr. Cunningham at the
Saturday uight meeting Btated that, although he had employed Chinamen, if
he could only bo Czar of British Columbia for a season, or words to the effect,
the "yellow horde" would all be bundled
off to Knmtchntka. Even the promoters
of the Electric Street Railway magnanimously stated that they had no intention of employing Chinese labor—tboy
hadn't thought of such a thing—and
were desirous of having things fixed so
that the Mongolians' chances of getting
work in the country would be vory slim
indeed.
When tho working mou come to wield
the ballot, they don't want to forget all
their friends. Seriously, in spite of all
the little affectations and hypocrisies regarding the Chinese who happen to be
In tho country, there would bo a vory
vigorouB and genuine howl of disapprobation if any attempt wero made to enlarge
the privileges of this generally admitted
undesirable class, or facilitate their entrance to the Province. We warn any
would-be or possible philanthropist
wbo might be disposed to undertake such
an enterprise, on tho strength of manifest differences of opinion on local or circumscribed plumes of the subject, that
his labor would be worso than lost, even
if ht)escaped with n whole hide him
self.
Winnipeg, the Queen City of the
Prairies, ia working up a project to hold
a graud central exhibition for the province this fall. It is proposed to obtain
assistance for the enterprise from the
Provincial Government and the Winnipeg City Council to supplement the
amount to be raised by the citizens. At
a recent meeting of the Council a motion
was passed to the effect that the city
should issue debentures to an amount
not in excess of $30,000 for the purpose
of purchasing exhibition grounds and
erecting suitable buildings. Thisamount,
the Commercial thinks, is rather a low
limit, if the grounds and buildings are
to be of a permanent nature. From the
experience of this city with our very
successful and creditable exhibition of
last year, we Bhould just smile it was.
A niggardly policy in providing grounds
and buildings would seem false economy,
well says the Commercial, and adds:
"Letus have something decent while
"we are about it and go iu with the in-
"tention of making the exhibition a permanent and lasting success." ThiB wns
precisely the object that Westminster
liad in view last year, and which was so
well furthered by the successful exhibition held. Now that the season has
opened, we may expect that an early
start will be made at carrying out the
additional improvements ut the park
and exhibition grounds, including another wing to the exhibition buildings,
provided for by the by-law, aud that
everything will be done generally to
insure that the grand Provincial exhibition to be held in this city next fall mny
be, as it undoutedly should, an even
more pronounced and brilliant success
than the last. Intending exhibitors
should begin to remember now to make
preparation for this oxhibition, which
will far outshine anything dreamed of
in the Province before.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Mr. Labouchero, editor of London
Truth, says, in reference to auch a suggestion: "The idea of Lord Dufferin at
the Foreign Office ia a preposterous ab*
surdity. He is far more broken in
health than Lord Salisbury, nnd the
work and the English climate would
kill him in six months. Moreover, he
is still on the political fence."
The splendid oil painting of himself
recently presented to the veteran Premier, Sir John A. Macdonald, by his
numerous admirers in the Houae, is
thus described: The portrait, a magnificent frame by A. J. Pell, of Montreal,
stood, shrouded by tho fair ensign of
Canada, at the east end of the caucus
room. It represents tho veteran leader
life size, dressed in Windsor uniform,
sitting in nn easy position in a leather-
covered arm chnir, whilst ou a small
table by his side rests his state hat. The
attitude is most natural, whilst the features and the expression are the Premier himself, Those who have seen
him when, from being apparently lost
iu thought during a heated debate, ho
lias suddenly aroused himself to watch
for a point, will aee the- Premier personified in thiB portrait.
Sawdust, Bays au exchange, ia no
longer considered a waste product anywhere, aud it has already become an
article of considerable commercial value.
The latest form in which it haB been
utilized is in the manufacture of paper
pulps aud Bheating paper. It has also
beeu discovered that the fine sawdust, ia
unequalled for the dressing of wounds,
nud as a vehicle for medicaments or
antiseptics. The sawdust when freed
frotn splinters aud sharp hits of wood
and used alone and dry, is a clean and
pleasant dressing; it readily takes up
and holds the discharge without packing or adhering, and is readily rendered
antiseptic by any of the methods used
in the preparation of antiseptic wool or
cotton. It is suggested that the yellow
pine sawdust, being rich in turpentine,
would prove a valuable antiseptic application.
Correspondents writing from Brazil,
says an exchange, represent the people
as willingly acquiescing in the new order
of Government. The constituent assembly is to meet on the 15th November
next, the anniversary of the revolution.
The Republican leaders claim this length
of time is necessary owing to the immenso extent of country, Foreign
residents being engaged in mercantile
pursuits were averse to the revolution,
but, once it was accomplished, they accepted the situation. The naturalization proclamation, however, lias given
deep offence, especially to Englishmen
resident in Brazil. To be deprived of
their standing as subjects of the Britisli
empire and metamorphosed into Brazil-
Hans without bo much as asking their
leave, is more than they will stand. Of
course, they will be sustained by the
British Government in the lesistance
they oiler to the change of allegiance.
The proclamation is clearly In defiance
of international law, but it shows the
Republicans of Brazil to be Imbued with
aome very curious notions of their powers
and prerogatives.
The happy family of "cities" on Bellingham Bay comprises four in number,
viz., Whatcom, Sehomo, Bellingham
City and Fairhaven, covering a water
frontage, semi-circular in form, of about
four milea, and boasting an aggregate
population of botween six and seven
thousaud, whicli is constantly growing.
Believing in the national motto, "that
in union there Ib strength," somo enthusiastic people in the "Bay cities"
have lately started a laudable agitation
for consolidating into one grand city,
with an alternative scheme for making
two cities out of the four nt present
existing under different minion. Under
the latter plan, which seems a natural
division, Whatcom and Sehome would
amalgamate, and Bellingham aud Fairhaven, The name of "Columbia" has
been suggested for tlie new city to be
formed by the proposed union of Whatcom and Sehome. Ultimately, it is believed by advocates of the consolidation,
that the four cities will be practically
and literally one, nnd the prediction
looks reasonable. The "one city" men
deserve to succeed in their worthy agitation, and we notice thot the enterprising presB of Bellingham Bay is foremost
in the good work.
The Grand Old Man, though an octogenarian, does not appear to liavo lost
one whit of liis wonderful eloquence,
having just made, according to the dispatches, the effort of his life in a speech
on a motion affecting the Parnell Commission report,    A dispatch of tlie 4th
iust. says: Tin: marvellouB speech delivered by Mr. Gladstone in tbe Commons last evening challenged the admiration of bis political opponents, nnd
elicited unbounded praise from his followers. All agree that it was tbe greatest and most effective pieca of oratorical
work lie has ever done, and although
the adoption of Hon. W. H. Smith's
motion as a niatter of party policy and
security iB a foregone conclusion, the
Tories themselves feel that its favorable
effect upon public opinion is totally
destroyed. At the conclusion of the
speech, Sir John E. Gorst.Q.C, political
secretary for the Indian Oflice, and a
most advanced Tory, remarked to a colleague: "It is the greatest speech we
shall ever hear in our time." Several
times during Mr. Gladstone's appeals
to the Government for justice and reparation to the men who had heen so
enormously wronged, Sir Charles RuBsell
was moved to tears, which lie made no
effort to restrain. Parnell sat pale aud
silent, but showed no sign of tlie emotion to whicli he is said to have given
way after the adjournment of the sit*
ting.
The Winnipeg Commercial says it
warned retailers last summer that they
wera paying a higher price to the producers for butter than the market would
stand, and that somebody would have to
lose, and it sums up the confirmation of
its prediction as follows: "The number
of country dealers now holding largo
quantities of butter, cannot of course be
accurately stated, but it is considerable.
To these the loss will be severe. Round
lots of butter have recently beeu disposed of in the neighborhood at 12 cents
per pound, which cost country dealers
from this country all the way up to 20
cents per pound. The low- on a transaction of this nature will be apparent,
Lust fall a considerably better price
could have been obtained, but many refused to sell, hoping for a better offer,
notwithstanding the knowledge thnt
butter begins to deteriorate in value the
moment it is made. LaBt fall there was
some demand from British Columbia for
butter aud a considerable quantity could
have been disposed of in that quarter,
though nt beBt the British Columbia
markets are limited. But holders here
wanted too high prices, and consequently
butter was abipped from Ontario,
through Manitoba, to British Columbia.
Later on quantities of Manitoba butter
wero shipped to the coast, but too late to
meet with ready Bale, as the markets
were overstocked, and fresh butter was
arriving from the States to the south.
Now there is no market but to ship eastward, which means that very low prices
must be accepted." The lesson of last
year's indiscretion, theCoi/ittiei'ciaf shows,
is that the retailer in Manitoba cannot
on the present basis of prices, safely pay
to the producer more than ten cents per
pound for gootl dairy butter.
Plans mid specifications nre being made
for engines for the new stem-wheel steamer for the Bou Accord canneries. The
engines are to be it-inch cylinders, four
feet stroke, with a locomotive boiler 17
feet long and 24 inches in diameter, built
to carry 125 pounds of steam. The whole
work of construction must be completed
in accordance with the approval of Mr.
W. A. Russell, steamboat inspector at
this port.—Times.

The people are queer, the low and high.
Queer in thctr gnit as they hurry by.
Queer tn their manner go cool am* shy,

"All people are queer beneath the sky,"

Nursing hia oano for a constant care.
Learning by effort to lisp and swear,
Drifting away from a mother's prayer
The cap and .bells of a fool to wear.
Queer that the right will sometimes fall,
Seeming to stray from the narrow trail,
Whilo the wrong sweeps on with bonding sail,
Catching tho breath of the pushing gale;

HER CURIOSITY.
Itte   Mortifying   Situation   Into
Whioh It Led Mrs. Pryam.
Mrs. Pryam was a slave to her curiosity. She was always wanting to know
things It did not concern her to know.
She spent much timo in useless wondering- about this and about that. She
wondered what her neighbors bad in the
bundles she saw them carrying home.
Sbe wondered what tbey had (or dinner
and how much thoir clothes coat, how
much Mr. Smith's salary was a year and
whether or not the Browns had paid tor
their handsome furniture.
Mrs. Pryam was also a woman of ideas,
She bad an idea that Mr. and Mrs. Jones
didn't live happily together. Sho didn't
know but she "rather thought" that tbe
Greens wero behind with their rent and
that the blacks lived beyond their
means.
Tbe arrival of a strangor ln the neighborhood gave Mrs. Pryam rich food for
wonderment, and she sooni much uf hor
time wondering who he was, where he
came from, whore bo was going, what
he wanted and If he lad * family. If
nothing definite could bo learned she
waa apt to fancy tbat he was a fugitive
from justico.
it follows from all thla tbat Mra.
Pryam was not a popular woman and
that her neighbors did not tako hor into
their fullest conlidenuo.
A largo and handsome houso across
tbe Btreet from Mrs. Pryam's having
become vacant, Mrs. Pryam began won
doring wno us next occupants would bo,
and when after a few wopks the house
was rented by a strango family Mrs.
Pryam gave horseif up to wondering
about her now neighbors.
11 was not many days before she know
that tho name of tho family was Murcy
and that Its members weru Mr. and Mrs.
Marcy, an elderly couplo, and their fuur
sons and daughters, all of whom were
grown to manhood and womanhood.
When alio called, which sbe did before
the family had boen two weeks ln tho
houso, Mrs. Pryam found tho Marcys to
be agreeable peoplo and a pleasant addition to tho society of tho neighborhood.
Othor peoplo formed the same opinion
of tho Marcys and it was not long before
thoy becamo decidedly popular.
Thoy were a kindly, uordial and intelligent family, ns oven suspicious Mrs.
Pryam admitted, and it was somo time
beforo Bho found any thing to criticise
In their dally life, although aho found
muoh to wonder about.
"I wonder," sho said one day to a
neighbor, "why the Marcys always keop
the abutters of that pleasant little second-story room in tbo west wing of the
house closed?"
"I never noticed that the shutters
wero not kept open," was the reply.
"Haven't you?" said Mrs. Pryam, in a
tono of surprise. "Why, I noticed it tlie
flrst day they moved in, and I couldn't
help thinking ita little strange. Wheu
tho Percys lived tlioro Mrs. Percy usnd
that room for a little sitting-room of her
own, and I've heard her say that she
thought It was tho pleasantest room in
the houso, I should think tho Marcys
would need It, large as thoir family is.
It looks bo odd to see tho shutters oi*
that room always closed and tho others
always open—evon to the attic shutters.
They've novor been open sinco tbo Mar-
cys took the house,   Isn't tt strange?"
Mra. Pryam had found so many natural thinga "strango" that she oould not
arouse ber neighbor's Interest in the
very remarkable circumstance that a
curtain window waB not used aa sho
thought lt ought to be,
But aa the weeka passed there was opportunity for Mrs. Pryam's wonder to
grow, for the blinds of tbat window wero
atill always closed.
"I've seen Uttle streaks of light
atroamlng through at night sometimes,"
Mrs. Pryam Bald one day to hec husband.
"Well, wbat if you have, my doar?'
ho said, laughingly. "Do you supposo
tho Mareyaare another tribo of Benders,
and tliat they entice strangers Into that
room and murder thom?"
"Yuu know I don't," replied Mrs.
Pryam, reproachfully. "I simply wonder why they don't make any use of
auch a dosirahlo room as that when I've
hoard Mrs. Marcy say that tbey wero
really crowded for room, large aa the
houso is."
When the Marcys had lived about six
months in their new home they gave a
large party to which all their neighbors
wero invited. Tbe Invitation gavo Mrs.
Pryam great satisfaction. "Ivo ofton
wondered," said she, "If they had tho
upstairs rooms as handsomely furnished
' aa those down-stairs, and now I shall
have a chance to And out."
Tho Pyrams were Ute ln arriving at
the party, and aa the parlora woro al*
ready filled with guests,  Mrs. Pryam
1 found tbat sho could "look around a Ut*
| tie upstairs" before going down aftor she
L had taken off her wraps.   Sho pooped
[slyly Into threo or four rooms, mentally
Poommenting on their appearance, and
r^whlle doing so began to "wonder and
wonder" what there oould bo ln the room
[ with the olosed shutters,
She knew the exact location of the
\ room, and had taken a step or two to-
L ward lu when Mr. Pryam stepped from
Lthe gentlemen's dressing-room and in-
fterfered with her plans.   But sho had
knot abandoned her purpose,   All the
'evening she waa on the wateh for a
\ chance to satisfy her curiosity.   She had
i purposely left hor handkerchief in tho
ladles'  dressing-room, and when sho
' oould do so without attracting attention
she slipped out of the parlor and wont
upstairs.
All the upper rooms and halls wero
deserted. The door of tbe room wllh
tbe olosed shutters was shut, while
all the other doors on tbat floor were
opon wido, a fact that Increased Mrs.
Pryam's curiosity,
"Thero can't bo any harm in just peep*
ing into the room," she argued, "nnd I
would really liko to know what thero Is
ln It. I'll Just take ono poop ln anyhow."
Sbo turned tho knob, the door was not
locked, and as it partly opened Mrs.
Pryam heard somo one coming hurriedly up the stairs. There was no time to
escape from tho narrow passage In which
she found herself and, fearing detection,
sho stepped quickly into the room,
closed the door softly behind her, and
found herself in total darkness. A
moment later, to her unspeakable dismay, she heard the door of the room
locked by some one on the outside.
lier curiosity now gave place to a feeling of alarm.
What was sbo to do? How oould she
escape? She stood still In the darkness
asking herself these questions. She
dared not cry out and bring shame and
disgrace on herself by confessing to
what lengths her ourioBlty had led her.
She began groping her way around the
room with outstretched hands until she
touched tho mantel, and the next moment her hand rested on a box of
matches.
She struck a matoh and held it between her thumb and finger, and as the
little flame for one brief Instant lighted
up the room Mrs. Pryam gave utterance
to an oar-plorufng Bcream and ran
wildly around lho room, upsettingebairs
and tabloB tn the darkness, and wildly
crying out:
"llolpl holpl Lot mo out! Lot mo out!
Murder I llolpl Will no one let me out of
thiB horrible room?"
Sume ono was about to sing In the
parlor below, and there was tbe usual
hush of expectation, which was broken
by Mrs. Pryam's screams.
Mr Marcy ran* quickly upstairs followed by many of tho guosts, and as the
serening still continued with increased
shrillness It was easy to discover whenoe
they camo.
Mr. Ma,-ey unlocked the door on whtoh
Mrs. Pryam was beating with her
clenched fists. She staggered from the
room with a pallid face, und tell Into bor
husband's arm, crying out: "Ob, Jamos,
tako mo away from this horrible housei
There's boon murder done In thatrooml"
Mr. Marcy and his guests stared In
amazement for a moment, then the host,
with a half-suppressed smile, stepped
Into the room, lighted llie gas, and
touching ah artificial skoletan hanging
from a hook In the wall near tho mantel,
he said:
"Perhaps thiB Is what frightened you,
Mra. Pryam."
On shelves around tho room were jars
filled witli liquids of various sorts, and
with specimens of snakes, toads, lizards
and other animals preserved in alcohol,
while on tables and stands wore tho instruments one often sees In chemical
laboratories, A strong odor of ohom-
idals pervaded tho room. Half a dozen
skulls were on the mantel, and great
owls and eagles, dead years before,
looked down from tho top of cases filled
with queer-looking instruments,
Turning to his surprised guests Mr.
Marcy said: "Somo of you may know
that I was for many years a practising
physician, and I have always been
grout) y i ii it-rested i n nutu rul history
and in scU'iitlllc pursuits of various
kinds. 1 have Tor a numbor of weoks
boon making some Interesting chemical
oxpei'imnnis in my littlo laboratory
which has boon kopt dark all tlio tlmo
Un' that purpose or I might have hud It
opon boforo'for tlit* amuuQtnont of my
friends who care to seo tho specimens I
havo hero.
"Itoccurred to mo a fow moments ago
that 1 had neglected to lock the door of
tho .room, ami I thought I ought to do
so to save somo of tlio bulb's from opening tlio door by mistako and receiving
just such a shock as Mrs. Pryam has
had, so I ran upstairs and locked tho
door, not knowing that I hud been too
late ln taking tliis precaution, and I
must beg Mrs. Pryam's pardon for my
carelessness In leaving the door unlocked."
Although Mr. Marcy made this explanation In a bland and smiling manner, thoro was a quiet sarcasm in his
words ho could not conceal, and which
was not lost upon his hoard's, Mrs.
Pryam made inn iters worso for herself
by saying, half hysterically;
"I—I—-just wan tod to soo what waa In
tlie room. That wus all. 1 have so
often wondered—"
Her deeply-chagrined husband led her
from tlio hall, and In a few moments
thoy were on their homeward way.
Tho lesson proved to be a wholesome
one for Mrs. Pryam, and when a few
months later slio and hor husband
moved to another town she left much
of hor curiosity behind hor, and wisely
concluded lo glvo her attention wholly
to her own affairs.—Youth's Companion.

He Oould Spare   No   .line for Heat   or
Open-Air Exorcise.
The greatest difficulty was to get the
patient to tako exorcise. "My grandfather," he said to mo, "lived to ninety
years' ho took much open-air exercise.
My father lived to eighty, yet he never

ERRATIC  BOULDERS.
Home of the Wonderful Features of the
Famous Mohegan Itock.
During the past summer and fall Prof.
Henry Beals, a fellow of the Boyal
Sooiety of London, boa boen visiting the
Now England coast, making a study of
tbo erratic boulders so common throughout that and other sections of the United
States. His special search has beon for
"rocking stones," but a very fow of
which are known to oxist, that Is, comparatively speaking. During his travels tho aid rendered by local geologists
and sclentiflc societies was greatly appreciated by tho English scientist
All geologists, whether of local, State
or National reputation, worked in conjunction with the professor, seeking to
establish beyond a doubt the theory
that these great rocks and curiously-
balanced stones, which in many instances weigh hundreds of Ions, wero
carried on floating icebergs during that
mythical era known to geologists as "the
glacial period."
Of tho "rooking stones" Beal discovered but ono new example In addition to
those already known. This was at
Noank, Conn., on tho farm of Caleb
Haley, a Now York lish dealer. Thla
rocking wondor is estimated by the discoverer to weigh twenty-five tons, and
has a rooking scope of only six inohes,
allowing It to bo readily moved by the
muscular exertions of one arm and hand.
Only one other "rooking stone" is known
in New England, that at Lanesboro,
Mass. Mr. Beal took a photograph of
Mohegan rock, also known as Shehegan,
In the town of Montville. The name,
Mohegan rook, was applied by the early
settlers, because tt was used by tho
Indian tribe of that name as a fortress
and as a watch-tower and sentinel rook.
Lato writers describe it as being the
largest specimen of the erratic boulder
rought down by the Ice flow, now
known to oxist in this or any other
country. It Is forty-five feet high and
seventy feet long, and ls calculated by
scientists to weigh at least ten thousand
tons; lt is wonderful to think of tbe immense size of an ice flow wbloh was
able to move under this enormous load.
It Is evidenced by the large flakes of
stone that have been olipped from its
sides by the insinuating frosts, that lt
must have laid ln its present position
for thousands of years.—St Louis Republic,       	
PERSIAN  STREET SOENES.
A Graphic Pen-Picture of lively Incidents
In a Teheran Boxer.
Mounted cavaliers or grandees, attended by numerous outriders, produce
general consternation when moving
pompously through the bazars in Persia. Evory one darts quickly out of the
way ot tho mettlesome steeds, whi-h
seem to tako special pleasure In showing off when half a hundred women
and children are almoBt under their
heels.
The feraucbes who clear the way for
the great man show mercy to no one. Be
lt dog or donkey, man or woman that
comes within the reach of their corbash,
or whip, it descends on all alike, Amusing scones often ocour, and some that
a.'o pitiful as well, whon some one gets
hit or knocked down.
Vailed women, with shrieks of laughter or cries of pain, fly hither and
thither, trying to keep the mantle ovor
their facosln all their hurry, and the
yelp of ours mingles with the metallic
ring of the Arabian steed when his iron
shoe strikes fire from tho pavement.

Queen Victoria In Trade.
When a Queen becomes a cattle-
breeder and speculator, runs in her
cattle at stock shows, and carries off all
the prises, we are apt to modify our
preconceived notions of royal dignity.
Yet this ls what the thrifty old English
sovereign Ib doing, and muoh to the disgust of the oattlemon and farmers who
oan not compete with her. She not
only gobbles the premiums, but on the
strength ot them sells off the prize
animals at fine prices, and yet artsto-

A Fine Amateur Mualclal Organ I cation.
The Y. M, C. A, orchestra is flourishing iu every respect, the membership
has increased to sixteen and is In a much
higher state of efficiency than when the
last public exhibition was given. The
Association has just added a splended
double buss violin to the orchestra instruments, and hopes to be able to purchase an orchestra drum and au "A"
clariuett shortly. The instruments used
bythe orchestra up to the present, comprises 8 violins, 2 comets, 2 clarinettB,
I flute, 1 trombone, 1 violincello, and
organ (the latter tho property of the Association) has been purchased bvthe
members of the orchestra themselves.
The double brass violin just obtained at
ft cost of $77.60, is being paid for by subscription, $00 having already been raised
towards the object from six individual
subscriptions. The Y. M. C. A, orchestra is a worthy institution, and is entitled to liberal assistance from the public
in its laudable endeavor to attain tlie
highest degree of efficiency possible,
The members give a great deul of time
to perfecting themselves in thoir respective partB, and thev should not bo expected to stand all the expense of a full
equipment of instruments, which will
make the orchestra both a credit to the
city and a source of real and roflncd enjoyment to the public. If any one
wishes to assist in providing the orchestra with the few instruments yet required, an early call upon the General Secretary, Mr. C. A, Davie, will bo greatly
appreciated,
It is stated—and there is also said to
be proof for the statement—that Mr.
Martin's authority for quoting in the
Local House, on Wednesday, the defeat*
ed resolution of Saturday night's meeting, as the one passed by the meeting,
wns an officially certified copy by the
chairman of the meeting of tbe resolution in question.
It is also said that no copies of the
amendment actually passed reached the
House up to the time of the discussion
ou the measure, aud that when such
copies did arrive Mr. Cunningham did
not receive one, although the district
membera, Messrs. Ladner and Orr did,
and the copies of the amendment were
not certified.
Mr. Jamos W. Harvey, chairman of
tbe meeting, interviewed by* a representative of Tiik Columbian, stated that
he had never signed a copy of the defeated resolution as passed, but that he
had, on the requisition of a number of
individuals, signed the resolution in
question as "a resolution introduced at
" the meeting." Mr. Harvey states
emphatically that he called the utten
tion of the individuals referred to to the
fact that the resolution which be sign
ed, at their request, as chairman, was
not the one which passed. Mr. Harvey
also states that the reason why he did
not certify to the amendment wns that
no copies were furnished him.
Iu this morning's Truth, as the public
kuow, Mr. D.   McGregor,  secretary of
the meeting on Saturday night, characterises all insinuations that he has
not been true to hiB trust as "utterly
false," and adds:  "I forwarded a reply
of the same [the ninendment]  to our
district members, Messrs. Orr and
Ladner.   In justice to the members of
the Street Railway Company, I must
say that I was never approached by
" one of them in respect to the mutter
" referred to.    But from reading the
" press reports of the proceedings in the
" Legislature it would appear that my
" coinmnnnicationa to Messrs. Orr and
" Ladner were not received by thom,
" but were probably lying at the post
" office at the time the discussion was
" going on iu the House."
It might be Btated that the lust clnuse
in the amendment which was passed
distinctly stated that copies of the
amendment should "be forwarded to
" Mr. Cunningham nnd each of tho dis-
" trict members;" etc.
Alderman Shiles, who was at Victoria
and in the House during tbe discussion
on the Street Railway Bill on Wednesday, says that he heard Mr. Martin state
before witnesses that he held a copy of
the defeated resolution duly certified as
Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.
Thero bus, it appears almost certain,
been deliberate crooked work somewhere, and others have been used as
tools in the matter. The public will
demand, and rightly, that the whole
disgraceful affair be cleared up and the
blume placed where it belongs.

I'ollce  Court Notes.
The entertainment at the Polico Court
this morning was considerably ubove the
average, in fact tho most amusing that
has beon on the boards for some months.
George Graham, an up-river rnncher,
camo to town a few days ago to dispose
of sundry farm produce, aiid to lay in a
supply of household necessaries to lust
during the busy-seeding season, He
made numerous purchases and had prepared to leave for home, wheu in an evil
hour he wus tempted to drink a wee drop
to keep his constitution braced up on the
journoy. One drink, like words in a
quarrel, lead to another, and it so happened that in the course of an hour the
rancher had forgotten all ubout home,
friends and country, and lived only in
the enjoyment of the "flowing bowl."
How longUraham would have continued
to drink is a matter that will never be
definitely known, bnt certain it is that
ho showed no signs of stopping until intoxication rendered him incapable of
lifting another glass to bis lips. Having
taken aboard a full cargo he made his way
outside and moved about lu a triangular
maimer on the stroet for some minutes,
attracting genoral attention aud Constable Anderson to his movements. Tho
constable thought the rancher should
not bo allowed to continue at large and
endeavored to remove him to the lockup, Bnt Graham had no intention of
going there, and showed his disinclination liy tearing tho law guardian's overcoat into shreds. Finally assistance was
procured, and It took four strong men to
place tho wild rancher in safekeeping.
At the Police Court he pleaded guilty to
all the charges laid against him, aud bo-
sides this generously volunteered to
plead guilty to any crime on the ctilon*
dar. He afforded tne Conrt great amuse
ment by his quaint remarks, and con*
eluded by offering Iub ranch for sale to
the lockup keeper on very easy terms
and small cash payment down. He was
fined 17.60 and costs, and advised to continue nil festivities, if so determined,
amidst scenes more rural than in the
vicinity of the lockup. After paying his
flues and tenderly embracing Constable
Smith the rancher harnessed bis horses
and left for home.
Wm. Rose, another dissipated indivi
dual, pleaded guilty to the crlmo of
drunkenness, and was fined $2.60 and
costs, payable within 24 hours.
The complete outfit of new type, etc.,
with which Tub Columbian, Daily and
Wkeklv, is now printed, was obtained
from the Portland, Or,, branch house
of the well-known Pacific coast typo
founders and printing material manufacturers and suppliers, Palmer &
Rey, and tho fine appearance which wo
Hatter ourselves tho papers make reflects some credit obviously upon the
enterprising firm from whom tho bulk
of onr plant was obtained.
At the adjourned general meeting of
the Perry Creek Gold Mining company
heltl Wednesday, it was decided to issue
a $76,000 extension of the capital stock,
and a number of the new snares were at
once spoken for by the present shareholders, The remainder of tho now
stock will tie placed hi the hands of
Bourchier, Oroft & Maltette for negotiation. Several fine nuggets of Perry
Creek gold are at present on exhibition
in the cabinets of the firm named.

PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.
Thuridaj 'a Proceedings.
[From Our Own Correspondent.]
Victoria, Mar. 0.—Mr. Speaker took
the chair at 2 p.m.
Prayers by Ven. Archdeacon Scriven,
The Standing Committee on Railways
reported the preamble proved of the
Ashcroft and Cariboo Railway.   Report
received.
Mr. Martin presented tbe report of
the Private Bills Committee, that the
preamble had been proved of tbe Fraser
River Gold Gravel Syndicate Co. He
also presented a minority report on the
same subject from said Committee.
Mr, Duck wanted to know whether it
was regular to receive a minority report.
He was not sure that it would be in accordance with parliamentary usage so to
do, or that a minority roport had ever
been presented before.
Mr. Speaker thought the report should
he read as such roports existed over and
over again in the reports of the House almost every session.
Hon. Mr. Davie said the Houso wanted
information us to the conclusions of the
Committee; if those conclusions were
not unanimous the House was entitled
to an explanations why this difference
of opinion had arisen.
Mr. Speaker snid if he ruled thut the
report be read he would only be acting
in according with the common usage of
the Houso.
Report accordingly read. The sense
of the report was that tho Fraser River
Gold Gravels Syndicate Co., Limited,
wns uot iu the iuteresta of this province. Report received and ordered to
be printed.
In answer to an interrogation from
Mr. Semlin, Mr. Speaker said that if
this report were adopted it would bind
the House for precedent.
Mr. Martin moved both reports be received and printed.   Carried,
Hon. Mr. Turner. moved tbe second
reading of the "Assessments for benefit of
Creditors Bill." He had been requested
by a number of the business men of this
community to introduce this bill. He
thought it would be a very useful measure and enable the debtor to dispose of
his effects iu such a manner as would
most benefit all bis creditors. The act
at present in existence does not fulfil all
the conditions required of such measure.
A law such us that he wished to introduce would be of great benefit to both
debtor and creditor. It was much more
humane and. sensible to .permit the
debtor to so compound with liis creditor
that he could pay up and go along in his
business, instead of having it destroyed;
iu which case the loss would fall upon
hoth the creditor and the debtor. Bill
read a second time and will be committed Friday.
Tho petition of the city of Vancouver
in opposition to the Water Works, was
rend, received and ordered to be
printed.
The petition of Win. Teague and A.
St. G. Hammersley iu opposition to the
private bill of Eben E. Olcott was received and ordered to be printed.
Mr. Martin objected to the printing of
this petition, moved by Mr. Cunningham, but Messrs. Beaven and Davie
strongly advised the printing, nnd tho
petition was accordingly directed to bo
printed.
The petition of James Morrison re*
gnrding certain lauds purchased by him
at a tax sale was ruled out of order, as
tlie question at issue was not within the
jurisdiction of the house, but the Lieut.
Governor-in-Executive.
House went into committee ou tbe
National Electric Tramway Co., Mr
Semlin in tbo chair. Committee rose
and reported progress and asked leave
to sit agniti at'tbe next sitting of the
House.
Col. Baker moved that the report on
the Crow's Nest & Kootenay Railway
Bill be adopted. Curried. Bill will be
read third time Friday,
Mr, Speaker ruled thut the University
Bill placed in bis hands for ruling tbe
dny before was quite in order as it was
a public measure.
Mr. Cunningham asked the postponement of the adjourned committee on the
New Westminster Street Railway Bill
as he bad received a communication from
Westminster thnt morning requesting
him to withhold the bill a week to allow
conference between couucil aud company.   Postponed until Friday weok,
House went into committee on the
Births, Deaths and Marriages Bill, Mr.
Orr in tho chnir. Committeo rose aud
reported the bill complete without
amendments. Report considered and
adopted. Bill read a third time and
pussed.
House went into committoe on the
Paciiic Coust Fire Insuranco Company')
Bill, Mr. Anderson in the chair. Committee rose uud reported progress und
asked to sit ugain. Committee will sit
again on Tuesday next.
House went into committeo on the
News,Advertiser Co's Bill after passing
its second rending, Mr. Croft in the
chnir.
Mr. Pooley {sub rota to tho Premier)
—Does the honorable mover of the bill
intend to insert a Chinese clause in this
bill?
Both—Ha, ha, hat
Committee rose uud reported the bill
complete without amendments, Roport
will 1)0 considered nt the next sitting of
the House.
Mr. Orr moved the second reading of
the Westminster & Vancouver Tramway
Co.'s Bill. Bill road a second timo and
committed, Mr. Haslam iu tho chair.
Committee roso and reported bill com
plete with amendments.
Houso went into committee ou the
Railway Bill, Mr, Cunningham in the
chair. Committeo rose at clauso 33,
which was passed, and reported progress
nud wilt sit again Monday.
Hon. Mr. Davie nsked lenve to introduce a bill to incorporate the Royal
Provincial Jubilee Hospital Bill. Bill
read u first time und will be read a
second time Monday.
Hon. Mr. Beaven asked the honorable
the Premier if there wus any truth in
the report thut a settlement had been
arrived at iu tho mattor of jurisdiction
over the minerals in the railway belt,
This question has beeu stuted in the
newspapers to have been satisfactorily
settled between the Dominion and Provincial Governments, but nothing to
this House so fur.
Hon. Mr. Robson said thut his col-
loagueB and himself had beon as much
surprised as the honorable leader of the
Opposition himself when they saw the
report published in the Colonist substantially the contents of the agreement between the Provincial and Dominion Governments. That article appeared under
the head of Ottawa correspondence,
while tho executive here was waiting
the official information ol the consent of
the Dominion Government to the agreement. He hud supposed the agreement
to be a cabinet secret and wnB very
much astonished to see it come out in
the Colonist from their correspondent at
Ottawa. The Government would be in
a position to place all the information
before the House In a few days, the substance of which had been already published in the press.
Hon. Mr. Beaven had thought the
legislature being in session they should
have received the information first.
Hon. Mr. Robson said that it wns not
the Government's fault.
Hon. Mr, Beaven replied thnt he had
not said it was and ti o'clock having arrived the House adjourned until 2 p, in,
Monday.
Just before adjournment the B. C,
Mills, Timber and Trading Co.'s Bill
was read a third time and passed.

Heats for Hrlttsh Oolumbla.
The Calgary Tribune reports the shipment of several carloads of fat steers
from that district to British Columbia
coast markets. The cattle were gathered from several ranches in the district
and were, according to the Tribune, in
prime condition. This shows that the
cattlo must be standing tbe winter well,
notwithstanding the unusual snow fall
of this year. When fat cattle can be
taken from the ranches nt this time of
yenr, they must be coming through the
winter in good shape. Alberta no doubt
will.be able ina short time to supply all
necessary requirements of the British
Columbia markets in the meat line.
Frequently we read in the coast papers
items telling of the importation of
butcher's stock from the states to the
south, especially in the line of sheop
and hogs. A great deal of mutton is imported to Victoria and other points in
British Columbia from Washington and
Oregon. Recently, owing to the floods
in those states, which prevented the
shipment of mutton, the supply of the
article in Victoria wus exhausted, and
prices were advanced to twenty cents
per pound. Alberta is well adapted to
raising sheep, and in a short time these
Britisli Columbin markets should be
supplied from our own ranches, aud
thiiB the necessity for importing would
be obviated. With tho developemeut
of the mining industry in the interior of
British Columbia, there will be a largely
increased demand for meats nt good
prices, and the benefit to be derived
trom Hub should largely nccrue to the
ranchers of Alberta, who should endeavour to be prepared to meet the demand. In addition to holding their
straw over for one or two yenrs, there
Ib another way in which farmers could
provide against years of scarcity in fodder. This would be to put up a double
supply of hay in years when the natural
prairie hay crop is very abundant.
There would bo no cost in doing this,
except the labor of securing the buy.
In this dry climate buy properly saved
and stacked would keep fresh for a
couple of years, aud in case of a liglit
hay croy iii tlie meantime, the farmer
would be well supplied.— Winnipeg Commercial,
