London, Feb. 11.—Tho Imperial Parliament opened to-day, and the Queen's
speech wuh roud from tlie throne by the
Lord High Chancellor. Tlie speech

Her Majesty says: "An armed force
uu<k*g.Poi'timuese officers, entered a territory wlJeW^British settlements had
been formed and where there are tribes
who have been taken under my protection, A collision with tbe natives resulted, which was attended with bloodshed, and acts were committed inconsistent with respect to the British Hag.
Portugal bas now at my request promised to withdraw ber military from the
territory in question." Her Majesty
expresses the earnest hope that the
auti-Blavery congress at Brussels willud-
vanee the great cause for which it was
assembled.
The Samoa Treaty together with the
Portugal Treaty, will be submitted to
Parliament for its .consideration, as also
wilt be the Extradition Treaty with the
United States. Her Majesty then sayB:
"I wait with lively interest tho result of
the Australian Federation Conference.
By well considered measures, bringing
these colonies into close union will increase tlieir welfare and strength, aud
wilt receive my favorable consideration."
The continued improvement in the
condition of affairs in Ireland and further diminution of agrarian crime, has
made it possible to very largely restrict
the area where it is necessary to deal
with certain .offences liy* summary
process. Proposals for increasing,
under due ilnancial precaution, the
number of occupying owners of laud
iu Ireland,'and for extondfng to Ireland
the principle of local self-government,
which haB already been adopted in England and Scotland, as far as they arc
applicable to Ireland, also for the improvement of the material well-doing of
the population of poorer districts, will
be submitted for your consideration,
Bills to facilitate and reduce the cost
of transfer of laud in England, and relative to the collection of tithes and
other internal matters, will be submitted; also a bill diminishing the difficulty
and cost attending the passage of private
legislation for Scotland.
A commission will be appointed to report ou the best means, for improving
the condition of the people in some of the
western highland districts and islands

A bill providing for ascertaining the
liability of employers for accidents to
their employees; also bills lo amend
the laws in respect of health of the metropolis dwellings of the working classes,
and for the better regulation - of the
savings banks, will be. submitted. You
will be asked to make better provision
for camps and barracks for the troops.
The estimates to be submitted nave
beon drawn with due regard to economy
and the necessities of the public service.

An Awful  Story.
Pakib, Feb. 11.—The Russian refugees
in this city have received a cypher letter, dated Kara, Eastern Siberia, Dec.
28th, stating that Madame Schida, a
lady of noble birth, and lately a school
teacher in Moscow, who is serving a penal sentence for boing found iu possession of revolutionary documents, suicided. Madame Schida, who waB a very
beautiful woman, resented the insult's
offered her by the director of the prison,
and in consequence of ho doing she was
stripped and flogged in the presence of
all tbe men in the prison. Fearing a
renewal of her humiliation aud suffering, she suicided by taking poison. The
letter Bays several other female prisoners
apprehending similar treatment, killed
themselves on hearing of these occurrences. Tlio male convicts confined at
Kara revolted en masse and the troops
were called out to subdue them. A
fearful massacre and wholesale torturing
followed.

, Port Haney News.
The second lecture of the season, in
connection with St, Andrew's (Presbyterian) church, Port Haney, was delivered In that edifice by the Kev. Mr. McLeod, of Victoria, the subject being
"That Young Woman," on tlio ovoning
of the 5th inst., when, notwithstanding
tho wretched state of the roads, the
building was well filled. The reverend
gentleman drew forth round after round
of applause by the  masterly  way iu
which be depicted tbe vagaries of the

A public meeting was held in the town

and tbe following officer were elected for
the year: W.J. Harris, Esq., of Port

presidents to be delegates to tbe Central
Association.
The subject of a trunk road to connect
with the Coquitlam and Pitt River road
was discussed at great length, and some
vory stirring speeches were delivered in
favor of it, which created an enthusiasm
that will certainly make itself felt at the
next provincial election, if some action
is not taken by thepreaentGoverument.
Why it is, Mr. Editor, that such a splendid road aB the Pitt River road from
Westminster should be almost useless
for the want of a bridgo over the Pitt,
is something that'all who visit this municipality are at a loss to understand.
The council's action in Bending the reeve
aud Councillor Stephens us delegates to
the Government to urge upon them the
necessity of constructing a bridge over
the Pitt River and a trunk road through
the municipality, was enthusiastically
endorsed. Rustic.
North Arm Newfi.
On the evening of Wednesday, Feb.
5th, a very pleasant time was spent at
the home of Mr. C. J. Robinson, the occasion being tbe departure of Mr. W.
T. Kinney, our popular and efficient
teacher from our neighborhood, The
friends gathered in to the number of
over 40, nnd nfter spending n couple of
hours in social conversation and some
interesting games in which the youngor
members of tbe party wero chiefly interested, refreshments were served, consisting of a plentiful supply of Mrs. Robinson's delicious coffee with the usual accompaniments, sandwiches, cakes, tarts,
etc. When these had been thoroughly
enjoyed Rev. S. J. Thompson took tbe
tioor, and calling Mr. Kinney to the
front, delivered a short impromptu address iu his usual happy style. He
spoke on the object of tbe meeting, viz.,
to bid good bye to Mr. Kinney, and referred in very flattering terms to his usefulness since he has been with us, and
of the universal regret experienced at
hia departure as was shown by the large
numbers present. He then called upon
Mr. Robinson to finish his speech. Mr.
Robinson came forward and with a few
appropriate and humorous remarks presented Mr. Kinney with a handsome
gold headed cane. Mr. Kinney was evidently surprised, and as ho rose to respond, struggled for a few moments with
rising emotions, but soon recovered his
usual fluency nnd launched out in a really good speech, reviowing the past year
and a half and tbe various interests in
the neighborhood with wliich he hna
been connected. He 1 bunked tbo
friends for the kindness, courtesy and
hospitality invariably shown him and
especially for this last murk of their
esteem. Rev. Mr. Thompson continued to act as chairman and
called upon tho following persona to respond in behalf ol the different interests with whicli their names
are connected: Mr. Tuttle; for the Methodist church including S. Scliool; Capt.
Stewart; for school trustees; R. Gage;
for Good Templars; Reeve Sexsmith;
for the council; O. D. Sweet; for the
Press; and Mrs. Sexsmith; for the W.
C T. It. After singing "The Sweet Bye
und Bye," Mr. Thompson engaged in
prayer and thus brought to a close a
most happy social gathering, From the
very complimentary remarks of the various speakers, Mr. Kinney was shown
to be a real live member of the community, giving his attention und influence
to everything that would promote the
well-being of the plnco and people, both
material and spiritual. As teacher of
the public school he was eminently successful, and his departure from B. C. is
not only a loss to tbe Nortb Arm settlement, but leaves a vacancy iu the ranks
of the profession not easily tilled.
The S. trustees havo been so fortunate
as to secure tbe services of Mr. Jamison

If Col. Sanderson intends to go lecturing in the United States he will require

THE DUC D'oflLEANS.
Tbe escapade of tho Due D'Orleans
is the most striking if uot the
most important iu foreign politics
of the week. It would seem as if the
heir pretender, who represents now both
the.elder aud younger Bourbons, had
taken a leaf from the book of Louis Napoleon aud essayed a mild imitation of
Strasburg and the Boulangor enterprise.
The school boy trick, played during the
absence of tbe Comte-de-Paris on a voyage to the West Indies, does not deserve

taken across tbo frontier after merely a
provisional detention in the conceirgerie.

as usual. Owing to the court beiug in
mourning, only white and black dresses
could bo worn and no jewels, except
diamonds and pearls, were allowed,
Thero wero 4,000 invitations sent out
and 3,000 persoiiB worn presont. Tho
Emperor woro the uniform of the Cossacks of the Guard, with tho orders of
St. Andrew and St. George.Hnd tho Empress was arrayed in while satin and
blazed with diamonds, having asii|icrb

wus in white satin, und she wore diamonds nud pearls, us also did the Grand
Duchess Serge, who wub led in by ber

Czar Nicholas, which was sumptuously
decorated iu white and gold, with his
portrait, which was enclosed in a frame
of hyacinths, at the top. Tbo effect of
the electric light in tbe hall and on tho

what witli palms aud a profuse display

Surrey Matters—A Now  Bridge Wanted.
Councillor Jno. Armstrong, of Surrey,
was in the city to-day. He reports the
snow having entirely disappeared from
the Mud Bay district and everything
looking spring-like. The roads ure just
in tolerable condition, in spite ol which
the three stages per week running between Westminster nnd Bellingham Bay,
and which manage to make connections
most of the time, are crowded with passengers as a rule both wayB. The attention of the Government is particularly
called to the urgent necessity Ior a new
bridge over a gulch about two miles from
Brownsville, on the Scott road, the old
bridge having been demolished by falling trees some mouths since, rendering
it necessary to make a detour by means
of a skid-track at that point.

Capital for British Columbia.
A recent issue of the Toronto Globe
says: Edward J. Howell, of London,
England, arrived to-day and bad an interview with the minister of the interior.
He represents the Mines Company, au
English syndicate of great wealth,
anxious to invest large sums in British
Columbia mines. Provided they obtain
an immense tract of land they are willing to construct and operate railways
and harbors, build wharves and provide
shipping facilities. They have five hundred thousand acres of land in Capo
Colony opened un iu this way. Their
chief enu is to develop the mining resources of British Columbia. Mr. Howell, who haB been in the Pacific province
a couple of times, has great confidence
in it, and predicts that the English syndicates now investing in the United
States will turn their money into Canada. His company hns large investments in Montana mines. Mr. Howell
left to-night for the coast.
Two   Stories.
Early yesterday morning the sealing
schooner Penelope, Capt. A. C. Folger,
returned to port, thero having been
trouble aboard while the schooner was
about fifty miles of! Cape Flattery. According to the captain's story, the trouble
arose between the mate and oue of the
Japanese crew, who refused to obey orders. A quarrel followed, and the sailor attacked the mate with a wicked-looking knife, whereupon the mate struck
him a heavy blow with a convenient belaying pin. The man fell to the deck
with the blood rushing from au awful
gash in his head, nnd his companions
then refused to work until a return was
made te Victoria, where the wounded
man could bc properly cured for. Seeing thnt there was nothing else to be
done, Cnpt. Folger sailed for home, nud
thu sailor was yesterdny taken to the
Railroad Hotel, where he is beiug cared
for. H1b Injuries are serious, but will
not provo fata). Capt. Folger yosterday
made affidavit at the Custom House to
the facts of the affair ub narrated above,
and will return to the hunting ground
in a fow days. The disabled sailor was
seen by a Colonist reporter last evening,
nnd through ou interpreter, told Ids side
of the Btory, Hu said that he did not
understand English, and wheu the niiito
ordered him to lull', he asked him what
ho said. With au oath the mnto replied for him not to "talk back" to him
aud struck him with the belaying pin.
Tbe injured man says that ho could
prove his talo if the captain would allow some of thu crew to comu ashore,
and emphatically denies attempting to
draw a knife or striko the mate.—mn-

THE  CANADIAN   WINS.
MoCormleh Defoatii   Pauliten,   the   Nor-
weglnn. for the Skating Champion-
Httlp or tho World.
At Eau Claire, Wis., on Fob. 2nd, live
thousand people on Half Moon lake saw
McCormick, of St. John, New Brunswick, take the title of champion skater
of the world from Axel Paulsen who had
held it eight yenrs. It was the third
aud final ten-mile race. The weather
was mild nud tho ico sloppy, but the
rink was in fair shape. It was three
aud two-tenths Inps to the mile. Henry
Hatch, of Minneapolis, was referee, aud
E. O. Remey, of Minneapolis, and Aldor-
maii Thompson, of that city, judges.
A false start was made owing to Paulsen's failure to get his coat oil'. Paul-
sun did uot start but McCormick did
and flew past the judge's Btand, Hu
came back, however, when his manager,
McEvoy, waived the start, and alter
a good deal of loud talk between McEvoy nnd Jungen, Paulsen's mnnager,
a fair start was made at 3:55. McCormick gained hall a lap in the first four
and then dogged Paulsen for 25 laps.
McCormick completed his first five miles
in 27 ■•■• minutos. Thero was nothing
vurv startling till Paulsen completed hia
24th lap when McCormick lot himself
out. Paulsen seemed to be either
weary or making little effort, and when
Paulsen completed his 80th lap McCormick had gained a ouartor of a lap more.
Paulsen spurted a Uttle the last two
laps, but McCormick increased his lead
and slid in nearly one lap or about one-
third of u milo abend; time, 47% minutes. Prominent Norwegians here hnd
bet heavily on Paulson. Two or three
thousand dollars changed hands. Paulsen took one-third of tlio gate receipts, THB DAILY COLUMBIAN, NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, FEBRUARY 11, 1890.

THE MAINLAND ASSOCIATION.
By a notice in another column it will
be Been that the first meeting of the
Cent rul'Executive of the Mainland Association will be held at the City Hall
in this city, on Saturday next, the 15th
inst. A gratifying degree of interest
has been taken in this matter through
out the entire district at least, and
it is reasonably certain that every municipality and settlement in Westminster District will be represented by delegates at the meeting of the Central
Executive of the Mainland Association
to bc held in this city on Saturday next.
Much good is Bure to result from so representative a gathering, especially in
view of the important question of redistribution to be shortly discussed, and
settled, temporarily at least, in the Local
Legislature. The consensus of opinion,
as well as the valuable information, that
will be evolved at the meeting and
brought to bear in due order upon the
deliberations of the House on this problem cannot fail to have considerable
weight in shaping legislation on the
question and strengthening the hands
of our representatives in performing
their duty in the niatter. Some splenetic Victoria critics of the preBS—themselves the very soul of sectionalism—
have raised this foolish and time-
worn cry against the movement in this
city and Vancouver and the district at
large which has resulted in the formation of the Mainland Association. The
great importance of the redistribution
question, and the inadequate information possessed on the subject for an intelligent solution of tbe question that Bhall
give fair and equal justice to all sections
of the Province, furnish ample reason
for the Mainland Association's being,
and guarantee that it will have its hands
full of useful and patriotic work without
stirring up our Island friends' pet bogie'
-'Sectionalism. It woidd bc a good
plan for our Vuncouver Island friends
themselves to form an association that
shall gather and compile useful and accurate information and otherwise assist
the Legislature to arrive at an intelligent aud equitable readjustment of
representation for the Province.
A REACTION IN THE ORIENT.
Kkcksti.y newspaper readers woro
told of the vust railway enterprises contemplated in the heart of the Celestial
Empire, that threatened to rapidly
modernize that stronghold of ancient
superstition and mossbackism; but,
anon, wurd came that the coy and fickle
heathen had thought better of tho
alarming proposal to wake them from
their thousand years' slumber that they
had in a moment of weakness squinted
upon with favor, and with oue voice had
vetoed the nineteenth-century civilizer
that was about to invade the sanctity of
their cobwebby domain.' For more than it
quarter of a century the indications and
the actual progress that Japan hns made
towards modern European und American civilization hnve been something
wonderful, but, according to late accounts, Japan, too, hus taken a balking
fit, as if repenting of having thrown
aside its long and carefully guarded ex-
cluslveuess. In view of the marvellous
progress which Japan has made since
the revolution of 1808, and of the eagerness which its people have for some
time past displayed to establish trade
relations with foreign countries, notes
an exchange, it is surprising to learn
that a strong anti-foreign feeling has
recently begun to manifest itself. A
Yokohama letter says that this is in part
due to tho fact that many of tlie foreigners in tlie country have earned the hostility of the natives by dishonesty and
by over-reaching in business. An anti-
foreign crusade has been organized, and
its leader is gathering about him nil the
factions not in sympathy with the past
course of the Government. Unfortunately, moreover, Counts Ito aud Inouye,
the two men who have had the greatest
share iu the advancement of tho country, have resigned their positions, and
political affairs aro in a chaotic state.
The date fixed for the opening of the
new Japanese Parliament is now not far
off, but the state of affairs Is such that
no worse time could be found for the
inauguration of this institution. "Until there is some change for the better
in the political status," says tho letter
referred to, "the whole project of a parliament had better be given up." It
will be sad, indeed, if reaction gains
ascendancy in Japan after such marvellous progress as the country has made
during the past two decades,
HONESTLY PUT.
In its absurd claimB in the Behring
Sea matter the United States Government haB by no means had the sympathy
or acquiescence of ita best citizens. Intelligent and honest American writers
almost without number have put themselves on record as demonstrating the
utter uutenablenesBof the foolish ground
taken by their Government in pretending to treat Behring Sea as a "closed
sea." In au article contributed to the
February number of the Atlantic. Monthly
Mr. Charles B. Elliott effectually disposes of all such sophisms and assumptions, and puts the subject iu ita truo
light. He points out, what has been
pretty clear from the first to every one
wbo studied the subject with intelligence and candor, that the United
States has no rights in Behring Sea but
what it obtained from Russia, and
that it cannot, without flagrant inconsistency, put forth claims which it has
alwayi resisted wheu they were put
forth by Russia when it stood in the
same relation to this matter that - the
States does now. The United States
never admitted that Behring Sea waa an
"interior sea," when this preposterous
claim was in 1821 set up by the Russian
minister, Mr. Politico, iu a letter addressed to John Quincy Adams, at the
tune Minister of State forthe United
States, but though it was asserted in
this single instance, and bo far as appears only in thiB instance it was never
acquiesced in by either the United States
or Great Britain, and was never insisted
upon by Russia. Even at that early
day, when the maxim that "Might
is right" regulated the conduct of
nations to an extent that would not
be thought of at tho present dny, tiie
great Russian publicist Von Martens did
not hesitate to cite this position taken
by Mr. Politico in behalf of his country
as an instance of "greatly exaggerated
claim." And Russia, perceiving that
she had taken a position which could
not be maintained, virtually abandoned
it in the treaty concluded with the
United States in 1824. All that the
United States, then, has acquired in
Behring sea, beyond the three-mile
limit, over which it has unquestionable jurisdiction, is nothing but what
Martens cites as a "greatly exaggerated
claim"—a claim which Mr. Madison,
president of the Tnited States, describes
in even more energetic language, characterizing it as absurd. And, as Mr.
Elliott points out, Russia's "illegal claim
" added to our |the United States] legal
" rights do not strengthen the latter
And speaking in behalf of the United
States he expresses the conclusion to
which the review of the whole subject in
all its bearings leads iu these worda:
" Clearly we have no extraordinary juris*
" (fictional rights in Behring sea inherit*
" ed from Russia which Great Britain is
" estopped by acquiescence from deny
"ing." And he adds: "The United
" States ennnot afford to advocate or
" support the violation of a well-estab-
" Halted rule of international law for
"the Bake of a temporary, selfish ad*
" vantage." He does indeed seem
to think that the interest of the
United States in the seal fishery is so
great that it would be justified in
claiming and exercising extraordinary
jurisdictional rights iu Behring sen if
the seal fisheries could not be otherwise
protected; but he adds: "ThiB is by no
" means demonstrated. Great Britain
" and Russia, practically the only
" nations interested, have expressed a
" willingness to join with the United
" States iu any reasonable plan having
" this object in view."
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A recent writer predicts that within a
period not very remote there will be but
three dominating powers in the civilized
world, one of which will be an Anglo-
American Alliance, another Russian
and the third—John Chinaman I Inn
recent Russian military couucil, high
authorities were quoted for an estimate
that China's army numbers 1,200,000
Dr. Peters, the German explorer, hns
been heard from once more, or rather it
Ib again reported that he bus been seen
in the interior of Eust Africa, alive und
well. It was iu July last that he started
inland, and in November the news was
brought to Zanzibar that he and his
whole party hud beon mnssnered by
natives. Since then conflict ing rumors
concerning him have reached the coast
from time to time, and there is us grent
uncertainty aa to liis fate as there was
laat year with regard to that of Stanley
The Colonies and India recalls u curious
incident which happened in New South
Wales some yeai-B ago, when Sir Henry
Parkes, then, as .now, Premier of the
Colony, appointed the late Sir James
Martin to the Chief Judgeship. The
latter gentleman was a solicitor, and it
was necessary to Iub advancement that
he should be a barrister aa well. Sir
Henry, therefore, had n speciul bill dealing with the case passed by the Legislature, and one day Sir James was
"called to the bar" iu tbe morning, and
took his Beat on the bench as Chief Justice in the aftornoon. Such a rapid rise
in the profession was probably never
heard of before nor since.
Party politics will probably decido the
location of the world's fair for 1892 at
Chicago. New York will be voted out
because it is Democrat and it Republican Congress ia not going to place the.
immense patronage of the fair in the
hands of a Democratic Governor on the
eve of a Presidential election. But Illinois is Republican and, by giving the
fair to Chicago, this patronage will be
retained In Republican hands and used
for the benefit of the party, as it
would be used to help the Democrats
were the fair to be held at New York.
Thus is everything in the United States
mado subservient to politics, and it Ib
doubtful whether the vulgar tyranny of
tho machine bosses bo not worse by
many degrees thun the misrule against
which 4th of July orators are accustomed to declaim.—Ex.
Of the EmpresB Frederick's altered
appearance sinco tlie days wheu as
Crown Princess her face boro "the bright
expression of beaming happiness," a
correspondent says : "The Empress
Frederick looks well and atill young;
but she haB become thin,and every lineament of her resigned and patient face
bears the impress of the sore trials she
has gone through. Yet these have uot
in the least lessened lier sympathy for
men nnd things—rather heightened and
deepened it. Kindness and benevolence shine from her features, and she
never for a moment looks dull or uninterested. It has often beeu observed
that gracious Queen Margaret of Italy
knows how to smile. The Empress
Frederick smiles without knowing it.
When ahe is pleased, interested, or
when she meets the glance of a friendly
eye, her eyes smile, Every one haa
heard of Her Majesty's high cultivation
of mind. Every one who sees her must
be at onco Impressed with a firm conviction that she has a grent heart, and
her extreme simplicity and naturalness
of maimer places every ouo at his ease."
Canon Dlddon recently made some
strong observations from the pulpit of
St. Paul's on the marriage market of
modern Babylon. He had, uo doubt,
ample room for a picturesque satire in
the familiar phenomenon of London society : "Eager mothers, like generals
Betting out on a campaign, prepared to
undergo nny amount of fatigue, if only
they could marry their daughters—not
necessarily to a high-souled man, but in
any case to a fortune. They could see,
too, ugro"pof young men, after per
haps a career of dissipation, thinking
that the time had arrived for settling
respectably in life, and looking out—not
for a girl whose graces and character
would make her husband and children
happy, but for somebody with a sufficient dowry to enable them to keep up a
large establishment. They could not
wonder, when the most sacred of human
relations was thus placed on the brutal
level of an affair of cash, that bucIi transactions were quickly followed by months
or years of misery—misery which, after
seething in private, was at lust paraded
before tiie eyeB of a wondering world
amid the unspeakable shame and degradation of the divorce court." "The
brutal level of an affair of cash" Is the
level at whicb French marriages ure ur-
ranged without shame and without pretence."  ' _ _
Although most hospitable and kind
towards their guests Btaying at Sand*
ringham, the Prince and Princess of
Wales are nt least us capricious as other
mortals, and it is often difficult even for
the best bred people to estimate to a
nicety the exact point nt which intimacy may become distasteful. Conduct
which in the ovening may be deemed
very charming nnd amusing, may be re
seutcd as presumptuous next morning, and between the fear of being too
familiar, nnd tho dread of being regarded ns dull, a visitor at Sandringham-
nnd especially a new one who is on trial,
ns it were—is between tbe devil und the
deep sen. It must be added, however,
that though insolence would be sharply
checked ut once,, and the offender dismissed as abruptly as Beau Brummel
was by George IV, the ordinary person
who becomes distasteful through want
of adaptability, dulness, or his host's
caprice, is never allowed to see that he
has become n bore by any change in tho
demeanor of his host or hostess toward
hiin. His stay is brought to a speedy
conclusion, nnd he is never asked down
to Sandringhnm again; but until he has
gone, he is treated with the most perfect courtesy and many of the worst offenders in this respect have come away
thinking that they had made a most
satisfactory impression, and ure lost in
wonder at not being invited again.—

THE   MAIDEN    AND   THE    FISH.
"There aro lish in tho sea quite as goad," said
the maid,
As a:iv that over wero caught,
And plentiful, Uw; and so greedy ot bait.
Thut tliuy rook not with what lt ls fraught."
So saying sho dnudled her rod as sho sat
'    In tho shade by tho side of tho brook,
And smilingly mused, us ahe drew forth ber lino
And craftily baited hor hook,
And gazed at the llshes that thronged at hrr feet,
In tlm water thoro sporting in glee,
As If pleated to be drawn by a hum! fair us bora
Prom their home in tho fur-away sea.
Thus time elided on, uud the maid and tbu fish
Pasnurt tliolr days in a pleasant, routine,
For tliu maid wus amused by tho llshes so fond,
And t'te ll li deemed the maiden their queen.
Yet dallied tho maiden with seeming delight,
And luugllfld—as slio dangled thu bait
Just a Utile too high for tho fishes to reaob-
At their many vain efforts to bite.
But after awhile with this trifling maid
Tho Hah grew Impatient and suld:
"There may bo other lish, but—there's otber
good ball,"
And away they nil hurriedly sped.
Now pondered tho maiden awhllo with regret
O'er the change whieh she saw lu bor fate,
Then called to tbo vanishing fishes:  "Como
baok,"
Bnt tho fish only answered: "Too Into."
Then "Alas I" sighed tho maid, "tbero art fish In
tho sea;
But In sorrow this lesson I'm taught—
That however so good thoy may be, there are
times
Whon a fiah will refuse to bo caught."

JARED PERKINS' RELIC.
Joelah Allen'a Wife Gives Her Some
Sound Advloe.
One of the relations on my own side
came here a vlsi tin' weok before last. She
that was ArvlUy Smith, or as aho calls
herself now, "tho relio of Jarod Perkins."
She staid twelve days and thirteen
nights.
She had her young child with her—
Luoilla Augusta Perkins.
And if Arvilly said "Lucilla Augusta*
don't," if sho said that once durin' them
twelvo days and thirteen nights, she
said it flvo hundred times. And I haint
a sottln* it too high.
Why, good landl I have sometimes
thought I had seon a mouse-hole watched
olose by a oat. But no plaeo of any description was ever watched as that
mother watched that ohild.
If Luoilla bit a apple on one Bide, It
was:
"Luoilla, don't! Don't bite it in so far,
you'll break off your tooth."
If Bhe drinked a glass of water, it was:
'*Lucilla, don't swaller such big mou'-
f uis of wator, you'll fill your little throat
too full."
Or, "Luoilla, swaller faster, or the
wator will run all ovor your little chin."
If she sat down hy tho flro, it was:
"Luoilla Augusta, don't sit so near tho
fire, or you'll burn your littlo facer
And if sho Bat away from it, it was:
"Luoilla, don't set away from tho fire
so far, you'll ohili your little volns."
And so it went on. If sho talked with
me and Josiah, it was:
"Don't talk bo much, Luoilla, you'll
wear out Cousin Josiati and cousin Hainan tha "
Or, if sho didn't talk, it was:
"Don't keep so still, Lucilla Augusta,
or Cousin Samantha and Cousin Josiah
will think you have lost your little
tongue."
And bo Arvilly kep' on—a deep, anxious oxprossion a-plowing into hor face
from day to duy; and littlo Luoilla not
dasMn' to speak a word, or move a movo,
wlthoutlookin* to her motlior. Why, I
got so woro out with it that one dny I
up and told Arvilly whnt I thought on't.
Iargied (and it was from a deep senso
of duly that I did It)—I argied that it
split a disposition hy keeping it riled
up all the time; it learnt her to be dependent on somebody else always. She
didn't know what to do, belli' toid so
many different things to once; and,
finally, I brung up a deep simely I had
heard Mother Smith use, and says I:
"As it has been said, and well suld:
'Watch pot never biles,* which I 'spose
means, If you watch a kettle too dost,
and keep a movin' it back and forth,
and pokin' at the coals undor it, it won't
bile. Thore ls such a thing as a wise
supervision, a overlookin', that don't
annoy or disturb, sort o' distant, and
near, too, liko the warm watchfulness of
the sunlight a bendin' over us ou summer days, soothln' and comfortin', and
yot guidin' and Ugh tin' our pathways.
But this constant and open tagging
after a child, or, as tlio poot would Hay:
This taggln* and naggin' is enough to
ruin any child whatsomevcr. It jest
takes away any frankness and independence of character tbey may have sot out
with.'"
"Oh, that is what I want to doi I want
Lucilla Augusta to lean onto me always.
I don't want her over to movo off independent of me."
And then I says to Arvilly, with asort
of a doep look onto hor: "You'll have to
in tho end!" And then I kinder looked
right through Arvilly onto great thinga,
eternal truths aud consequences, and
Bays I:
"No human soul can be helped only
jost ho fur. Lonely they como into this
world, lonely they'll go out of It. And
all along through life tbe lonosomosoul,
though surrounded by watchfulest relatives and friends, yot in a certain
sense lt has got to llvo alone, dwell hy
ItHolf in tho doep places whero no oyo
can toller It, no oar hear what It says
no bno but the Ono who made that soul,
mado tho deep places Into which 11 hides
Itsolf
"Now, that lndopendent Individual
life has Its rights. It must have 'em; it
is a Hoparatn hoin'—mothers don't want
to think bo, but it Is. A mother may
want to tako tho hull child, clothes and
all, and put lt right in tho middle of
her own heart; but sho can't; her heart
hain't blgenough. Or she may want to
got right outsido of her child's honrt,
and fill it full, so full that nothin' else
can get in, and Hho weighin' as sho does
ovor a hundred; but she can't; sho is too
big.
'The best love, tho truest and tho
tenderest, has to kindor hang round on
tho outside; it can't got inside of tho
beloved heart and soul, it can't! It Is a
lonesome feolin' to contemplate It, but
It ia true. And so what remains for anybody to do Ih only to admit the fact. Own
up that the littlo soul haint a partof
our own lifo, but has a separate existence ot lta own—with its own duties, its
own pleasures, and cares and rights. It
haa a right to its own little thoughts, Its
own Uttle ways, and tho beat we can do
for a child ls to teach lt to Btand alone,
and itand straight
"No niatter how muoh wo love to have
it lean on us, and O, how passin' sweet
tt Ib to have the little fingers cling to
us, and the dear little form lean on ub;
but we must put self baok on us; we
muat stand ln frontof oursolf, as It wore,
and do right, and learn the little erector
to walk upright without our help, and
once In awhile we muat let go of the little dimpled hands, a leavln' 'om free to
grasp holt of lifo for themselves.
"A tough lesson for'mothers to learn,
one of tho toughest and hardest sums
that arc ever set for ono on the slate ot
life set for 'om to work out.
"And -what makes the Bum more curious and difficult Ib that you can't seem
to got no answer to It. You may add
> and subtract, and uso up every rule ln
the old 'rlthmotio on It, but you don't
seem to get no sure result, no certainty,
that the answer will be a happlfying
and sure one,
"But you have got to sot there and
flggor away all the same—got to work tt
out the best way you can! The sum is
aet down in front of you, and yon have
got to do it—or try to, anyway.
"Good landl talk about eduoatln' a
childl Why, if the mothor is a true
woman and mother, the ohild educates
hor more'n Bhe educates the child,
enough sight.
"She loams a divine patience through
bearin' with tho childish little faults.
"Through fear of sottln* a bad example In front of it, she learns to control
her own temper and her. tongue, and behaves herself more'n a good deal ot
the time.
"She learns a heroic courage from
her love for the child that will combat all
danger—smile at Satan's rage, and face
a frownin' world—
"She mounts up Into the topmost
height of self-abnegation and martyrdom (as I have said more previously)
when sho learns it to get along without
her—liko an old bird ptiBhin' her young
one out of the warm nest ho it may learn
to fly.
"0! how tbat old bird would love to
keep it jn the warm nest—how her love
wants to brood over it always—how she
yearns to keep it olose to her own
joaloua, beating heart —how doubly
lonesome the old nest is when tho little one is gone; how happily sad, and
how joyously mournful ts the thought
that it is a-learnin' to ily alone—that
tt Ib a-loarnin' to ho happy awny from
her, away from the old nest—that the
walls of the old home can nevor again
bo the bound of its joy and content.
"No, the wido horizon has now
dawned upon ft, tho clear, far fields of
ether, and it must soar and sing, and
sing its own songs, Imi id its own nest,
live itsown life in its own world."
(This was an allegory.}
An' I talked in this way to Arvilly
from hour to Dour, and trom day to day,
and oplsoded some.
But I don't know as it done much good.
Sometimes I am afraid it didn't.
You can't givo advico throo times a
day In a littlo sweetened wator like
boncset tea or squills. No, you have to
sort o' hang round and administer it tho
tiest you can, and when you ean, and
where you can And then you haint
sure it is swallowed.

thoy drove olT, .losiah a-takln' 'em to tho

For I hoard Arvilly say, as she sat by
the side of Josiah Allen in tho democrat, and a gray parmetty dress, I hoard
horsay:
."Lucilla Augusta, don't set down on
your llttio new gown or you will muss It
all up."
And a minute arter, just as they
turned round the cornor into the road:
"Don't stand up. Lucilla Augusta, in
the wagon or you will break ol! your little ankles "
I fult deprostod about it, and couldn't
help It.—N. V. Christian Advocate
EVIL  COMMUNICATIONS.
How Thoy Iluliiml  tlie Sweet Illnpaaltlon
ot » Ilrljflit Uttle GlrL
A remarkable Illustration of the faet
that evil communications corrupt good
manners has recently been homo in
upon me, writes the Chicago Journal
Bidc-watk stroller. Kor tho last four or
five months I havo been on terms of in-
timato friendship with a very attractive
young woman, who Is nearly two years
old. She only uses a fow words, but sho
uses them frequently, and she adds
about twenty words a day to hor vocabulary. For the first two months of
our acquaintance I nover knew her to
cry or mako a loud noise, although she
was teething, and—for part of Uio time
—Buffering from whooping cough.
When she got angry, instead of yelling,
Bho just put her thumb in'her mouth
and took it over along with her into tlie
oornor, whoro aho contemplated tho carpet or the celling until her wrath had
subsided. Upon such occasions sho had
to do without whatever Bho wanted.
But a chango oamo over tho spirit of the
scene One day hor cousin, a boy aged
four years, was brought up from the
country to spend tbo winter with littlo
Julia's mother. He is one of tho boys
who, when ho sees any thing,
takes tt, and when ho doesn't see
it, asks for it, and when ho
doesn't get tt, just hollers like all the
sea-lions, bears and tigers in Lincoln
Park. He is a howler from Howlors-
villo, and Invariably gets whatever lie
wants tn double-quick time. He haa a
buzz-saw voice, and ho makes the most
of it. When he yells he drowns the
sound of the cable-car, which runs he-
fore tho dining-room window and he Ib
yelling from sunrise to sunset. Julia
was much struck with the incomparable
efficiency of her cousin's methods of
transacting business, and tho day after
his arrival entered Into partnership,
and adopted his system ln full. Julia
nover goes to the corner now when she
ts angry—with or without her thumb.
She just oatohes her doll by the leg and
bangs Its head against tho glass of the
book-case, and howls until the saw-dust
begins to flow. She stamps both foet
and bangs around evory thing she can
lay hold of on tho table. During all her
waking hours she and her cousin are
fighting like demons. The house Is uninhabitable, and soon tho whole blook
will be vacant. Julia, probably, has
had her temper spoiled for life. And all
this because two, mothors — who are
among the best women tn tho world-
have no moro idea ot how to educate
children than thoy have of the Integral
calculus. Yot they are supposed to be
doing their duty to society by raising
two moro torments for the human raco,

ROMANCE IN   REAL  LIFE.
A  Thrilling  Episode   That Would Have
DeUfhted Wilkie CoUiiu.
A ease of mistaken Identity Involving elements of dramatic interest sufficient to make the fortune of a sensational novel has just ocourred In
Switzerland, says the Pall Mall Gazette.
A young oouple named Favre belonging
tothe working class had lived happily
together for some yeara at Noufchatel,
when the husband, a working mason,
began to give way to habits of drinking.
Efforts were made to reclaim him, and
he became an abstainer for some time.
Some, months ago, however, ho broke
out again and left hts home. His wife
had heard nothing of htm for three
monthB, when one night she was
awakened by a voioe calling her repeatedly from the street outside and whioh
she felt sure was that of her husband.
Sho rose, dressed, and went Into the
streot, but found no one. A few days
afterward she read an account in the
newspapers of a man who had committed suicide on the railway at a small
village near Bale. From the description of him she suspected It might be
her missing husband, and became full
of the Idea that tho voice Bhe had heard
was a communication from him at the
moment of doath. She was corroborated tn her belief by learning, as the
result of Inquiries, that ho had made
application for work at a neighboring
quarry, but being In liquor at
the time had been roughly refused by the foreman. The body
for somo time now had been Interred,
but in order to put an end to her suspense the poor woman, having got'together a little money, started off with
tho determination to have the body disinterred. She readied the village, and
after some delay secured permission to
open tho grave. With two or three men
as assistants sho set to work. When tho
coffin was opened the effluvium was so
terrible that her companions ran and
loft her alone wtth her dead. Foi
twenty minutes unaided she pursued hei
ghostly task. The body had been decapitated by the train, and the head,
horribly mutilated, was wrapped by Itself in a doth. Sho uncovered it and
recognized it by tho teeth. One of the
stockings also Bhe knew again from having mended it with a particular kind of
worsted. Her worst fears thus continued, sho returned homo in the depths
of sorrow. Tho aged mother of the man
was Informed of the identification, and
mourning was boing prepared for the
wholo family when the orowning aot of
tho drama was furnished by a letter
which has just beon receivod from Favre
himself, announcing that he Is at Wintering alive and well! The wife had,
after all, identified the wrong man!
Who it is thatactually lies In that lonely grave no one knows. What would
not Wilkio Collins have made out of
that midnight votoe, tho grave-yard
vigil and the extraordinary denouement!
BOUGHT  BY  HIS  FATHER.
How a Slave-Dealer Whs Oompelled to
Withdraw His Bid.
In Jacksonville, Fla., In tho winter of
1848, an auction salo of tho personal estato ot a deceased planter, comprising
some sovonty or eighty slaves and othor
"chattels," was hold in tho public
market place. I was glad of the opportunity to soe for myself how suoh things
wero done, writes a Now York Sun correspondent. On beginning the salo the
auctioneer announced that families
would not be separated, but would be
sold In "lots." After a number of "lots"
had been duly brought to tho block and
knocked down to the highest bidders a
bright-looking boy was brought forward
nnd placed upon the stand. Tho auctioneer at tbo same time called an old
colored man among tho crowd to come
up and stand beside tbe hoy. Ho did
so, aad the auctioneer thon said:
"Gentlemen, tho old man is the boy's
father; ho lives tn tho Wost Indies, and
fs a freo man. Ho wants to buy tho boy
and take liim to his home and make him
free. He bids 8-100, which is all the
monoy be has."
The intent of this statement was evidently to discourage any advance on
that bid, and It touched a sympathetic
chord In his audience. The crowd
watched the proceedings for a minute
or two in stlonoe, while tbe auctioneer
dwelt upon tho bid of S400, and was
oalling tt for the third aud last time,
when, from the outskirts of the crowd, a
voice bid: "Fifty." Every oyo was at
once turned in tho direction of the bidder, who was a rough, dissipated-looking fellow, a typical slave trader iu appearance. Tho auctioneer paused a
moment, looked annoyed, and then repeated his previous statement concerning the old man, emphasizing the remark that four hundred dollars was all
tho money ho had. "Aud now," said
ho "I am bid four hundred and fifty."
From a dozen voices camo the ery:
"Withdraw your bid!" Tho auctioneer
awaited tho result. The bidder growled
a surly refusal, saying ho "wanted that
boy, and had as good right to hid as anybody." "Four hundred and fifty," camo
slowly from tho lips of the auctioneer.
The shouts of "withdraw your bid!"
wore repeated In angry tones on every
side.
"Well," said the bidder, "I withdraw
it."
The auctioneer quickly wont back to
tho original bid, on which ho dwolt two
or threo times, when down wont his
hammer. "Sold at four hundred. Old
man, tho hoy ts yours; tako htm down."
Tho crowd oheerod, and the principal
figure In this littlo drama, who the moment boforo had boon tho picture of
despair, hurried down from tho stand
smiling and happy.
AN EVERGLADE COURT.
How a Florida Judgo Punished ft Crowd
of Lair Lawyera.
A Florida lawyor tells a NowYork
Tribune correspondent this story of
practico down on Indian river: The lawyers down thero wuro good-natured, Indolent fellows, who never had their
cases roady for trial whon called. The
judgo had often beon forood to spend a
week tn the close llttio court-house and
at the dreadful hotels, when two days'
prompt work would have wiped off the
calondar, He had scolded and threatened to no purposo many a time. ''Court
week" wbb a semi-annual celebration
down there, the "c. ackers'* gathered in
from far and near, and the tavern-keepers expected to mnko a good thing of
lt and wero seldom disappointed But
the judge determined to teach them a
lesson on this occasion.
Ho opened court promptly, with the
result that one-hnlf the cases on tho oal
endar wero oalled beforo counsel began
to arrive. Of tho other halt not a single
oase was ready. Evory lawyer had a
witness missing, or a Juror lato, or some
logal formality yet to be complied with,
and all noted how affable tho judge waa
tn granting a few hours' tlmo on the
most trivial plea. Finally, wbon the
clork ot tbe oourt announced that no

NEARLY FATAL.
Mrs.   George Turner Meets with tt Very
BerlouH Accident.
A most serious accident happened to
Mrs. George Turner last evening, and
which only stopped shortof proving fatal
by a very narrow margin. Mrs. Turner
had heen calling at Mrs. E, S. Scoullar's
residence next door, and about 111 o'clock
after bidding all "good night" left the
house by the back entrance. Tbe two
houses connect at the rear by a verandah, only partially protected, and in the
darkness Mrs. Turner made a mistep and
fell to the ground, a distance of fully 10
feet. Her cries alarmed Mr. Turner and
the members of the Mr. Scoullar's family,
who were quickly on the scene of the accident and conveyed the injured lady into the house. Fortunately uo bones
were broken, but a deep gash on the top
of the head, of a serious nature, proved
how narrow had been Mrs. Turner's escape. A physician was instantly munitioned anu soon arrived. It was fouud
necessary to put several stitches in the
wound, which was botb long and deep.
To-day Mrs. Turner was resting easily,
and progressing as favorably as could be
expected under the circumstances.

tako into consideration a new scheme to
dyke a portion of the municipality extending from the eastern boundary to a
point on Boundary Bay to connect with
the system of dykes there. The extent
of land to be reclaimed by this proposed
scheme will be in the neighborhood Of
7,000 acres, aud the benefit, to the set*
tiers from the dyke will be almost in*
calculable. The dyking scheme will be
introduced asa municipal affair, under
the Municipalities Act of 1889. A full
attendance of all parties interested in
this proposed improvement is requested
atthe meeting.

over. Moody square is the next tbat
calls for attention, and if the work of
clearing and levelling it is commenced
within a reasonable length of time, tbe
square will be in a fit condition for athletic sports before the end of the season
The west end people are anxiously waiting for a move to lie made in improving
Moody square, but they will not have to

Those Flags A (rain.
The Gorrie flags, hired by tbe council
last fall, but returned promptly without
opening the package as soon as it was
learned their use was to cost i\40, were
flaunted in the face of thu aldermanic
board again last night. Mr. Gorrie is inclined to yield a little, and though lu
declared some time ago that his ultima
turn had been sent, the communication
lnid before the council last night «hows
that he is not inclined to harsh treatment, but will give the city ono more
chance to come down wilh the amount
asked, $70 and rfl5 legal costs. Tlie
council, however, is strangely immovable in this matter, and declines to
give one cent more than the first offer,
namely $-10, and tho general opinion is
that Mr. Gorrio will get more than be is
entitled with Hub sum. The matter has
been left in the bunds of Mayor Brown
and the city clerk for sett lenient, and if
Mr. Gorrie will not accept the $40 he
be at liberty tu sue as soon as lie
pleases.

A Coming Jllewiing.
The pound by-daw, passed by last
year's council, to prevent the running
at large through the city of cattlo aud
horses, will come into force ou April 1st
Gardening hus already been commenced
in tho eity, and within a couple of weeks
much will have been done in this direction, therefore it is a pity tho by-law
does not come iuto force a month earlier.
However, the nuisance will not be spread
over the whole year, as in the past, and
it is a matter of general congratulation
that the city this yoar will uot be subjected to the disgrace of being referred
to as a "cattle ranch" by visitors. Gardeners will lie relieved from the'depredations of long-headed cows, aud the
ladies will uot lie obliged to turn out
into the muddy streets to make room
for vicious cattle. The benelit will not
fall entirely on the public; the cattle
will have to be better cared for hy their
owners, and consequently the by-law
will serve as a roal boon all round. In the
meantime the city couucil should take
some steps to prepare a corral for impounded cattle. It will not do to leave
this part of the business till the last
moment.

Carried unanimously.
Tho special scliool taxeB duo tho Government came up fora short discussion,
aud it wuh tlie general opinion of the
board that the amount should  be paid.
Ou motion it was decided that the
amount in full due on the special school
tax bu paid the govornment.
The civic officers' Salaries By-Law was
recommitted, finally passed aud ordered
to bc published.
Aid. Johnston introduced the Mayor's
Indemnity By-Law, whicb was read a
first and second time, and committed.
Aid. Hoy said be hnd pledged himself
not to vote for nny indemnity to the
mayor, and would therefore mark bis
dissent.
Aid. Johnston commended Aid. Hoy
ou his straightforwardness, and said
overy member of the board would re-
spei'l his scruples. But it bad been understood the mayor was to receive a
salary, and he would support it. The
by-law was passed, clause by clause,
read a third time and finally passed, and
ordered to be published. The mayor's
salary was fixed at $1,000, to be paid iu
monthly installments.
Aid. McPhaden asked fur further time
to report on the Street Naming and
Numheriug|By-Lnw.
Aid. Hoy objected to further time being granted,'aud said he would like to
know tho reason why a further extension ehould be asked be asked, He had
been 14 months wrestling with the bylaw, and that should hnvo been time
enough.
After a few remarks by other aldermen, further time to report was granted.
On motion the confirmation of Police
magistrate Atkinson wus ordered to bc
asked from the lieutenant-governor.
Aid. Shiles was grunted six weeks
leave of absence.
Aid. Johnston moved that the boani of
works call for tenders to extend the improvements of Edinburgh street to tho
North Arm road.
Aid. Shiles objected to nny tenders
being let until a statement of the Btreet
accounts is prepared.
Aid. Johnston and Aid. Sinclair both
urged the necessity of this street being
improved immediately, as it is next to
impassible, aud the traflic is great—
almost as great as any street in the city.
Aid. Hoy suggested that the work be
not proceeded with until Fortesque
street was completed, and he insisted
that the plans at any rate, should be
nccepted uy the council first.
After considerable discussion the
board of works was ordered to have
.plaiiB prepared for the improvement of
Edinburgh street.
His worship snid he had allowed the
aldermen tu speak 7 times each ou tlie
subject just disposed of, but in future
tho members would have to keep to
order. He said the discussion had
proved the necessity of a definite street
policy being arranged.
Aid. Hoy introduced a motion: "Thut
the board of works be instructed to have
the sidewalks completed on Agnes, Clement, Fortescue, Patrick, Pelham, John,
Mnry and Park streets.
Iu bringing the motion before the
council Aid. Hoy said the lumber for
these walks was already on tbo ground,
and the most of it bad beeu puid for.
A large number of men were idle in the
city at present, and if work un these Improvements were commenced it would
give employment to these people,
Aid. McPhaden thought it useless to
lay any more sidewalk ou Fortesque
street! at present, and suggested that
Edinburgh street bo inserted iu the
motion instead.
Aid. Johnston agreed with the last
speaker, aud declared that the west end
was uot getting its just rights, while ou
the contrary the east end wns getting
more than its share.
Aid. Hatcbelor said tbe west end only
wanted its rights. Fortesiiuo Street was
scarcely used while Edinburgh street,
one uf the main arteries uf the city, was
budly neglected, aud a disgrace to the
city. All the sidewalk work proposed
was a long way from Edinburgh street,
uml of uo benefit to the people uf that
locality,
Aid. Shiles pointed uut the fuet that
the lumber for the proposed new sidewalks bad been laid down two months
ago; the walks had to be built, men
were out of employment, ond tho work
should go on.
HiB worship thought it best to drop
both ForteBcue and Edinburgh > streets
from tbe motion und proceed with tbe
others, leaving the former niatter to be
sottled by the board of works during the
week.
Aid. Sinclair thought this ft gootl
method; and so did Aid. Shiles, but the
remainder of the board did not wish to
give ih au inch until they bad just wbat
was wanted. Half an hour's wrangling
followed, during which, contrary to the
mayor's promise, soveral of the Aldermen spoke at least half a dozen times.
No progress in tbe question was made
during this time, und Aid. Shiles Dually
went home in disgust.
Finally a motion was introdeced, lay-
ingthe matter over till the next meeting,
whicli was carried.
Aid. Hoy rose and stated that in anticipation of the original motion carrying,
men were already at work on some of
the streets. He wished to clear himself,
and would therefore move that all work
be suspended ami the men discharged.
The last motion had made this move
necessary and he regretted it deeply as
the men were badly in need of employment.
This rather startled several members
of the board who hurriedly declared they
did not want any men to De throvn out
of work.
After some discussion it was resolved
to let the work go on another day and
settle the questions at issue at a meeting
of tbe Board of Works to be held tonight.
Aid. Shiles gave notice that he would
bring in a police officers' by-law.
The Council then adjourned.
