The  Kootenay   Railway  Bills are
Thrown Out To-day by the
Dominion Government.
The Flslieriet*,
Chicago, March 4.—A special from
Washington this morning Bays: It is not
Sir Chaa. Tupper, but the letter's son
who is here, and he haa brought the
British Minister some information about
the seizure of British sealers by the
United States revenue marine vessels
in the Aleutian seas. The main question
between the two governments has been
settled. Sir Julian Pauncefote concedes
to tlie United States tlie ownership aud
control of Behring Sea, or at least no
much of it as lies east of an imaginary
line, drawn from the middle of the
Straits to the Westermost Island of ttie
Aleutian Archipelago, and on tbe other
hand Mr. Blame concedes that U.S.
vessels had no right to detain the British sealers without having first warned
them not to enter these waters, The
question of damages remains to be determined, aud young Mr. Tupper, who
has had oharge of the case at Ottawa,
has come here to inform the British
minister on the subject.
Rain Again.
San Francisco, March 4,—Rain is
predicted for Oregon and Washington
until to-morrow morning.
Two Cause*.
Louisville, Kas., Mar. 4.—Wm. H.
Pope, teller of the Louisville uud National Bank, has absconded to Canada with
160.600 of the bank's money. The bank
will be unaffected as it bas gilt edged
security.   Cause whiskey and poker.
A Great Plot.
London, March 4.—Despatches bave
been received hereconfirming last night's
reports that a rendezvous of Nihilists
have been, discovered in Bnsllist, and
among property seized is a printing press,
a large quantity of Nihilistic pamphlets,
a store of dynamite and gunpowder and
bombs. Arrests continue to ue made iu
connection with the discovery.
The Great Bridge  Opened.
Edinburgh, Mar. 4.—The great bridge
over the Firth of Forth waB opened by
the Prince of Wales aud a distinguished
company to-day. A vast crowd witnessed the ceremonies. There are great
rejoicings over the completion of the
bridge.	
Repulsed tlie.'Attwik.
Parib, Mar. 4.—The governor of Senegal reported to tbe Government that
the French garriaou at Atzebo has repulsed an attack made upon it by BOO
soldiers of the King of Dahomey. A
hundred of the attacking party were
killed or wounded. Reports are current
that the Government intends to assume
iurisdiction over the kingdom of Du-
lomey, and that an expedition force ia
about to be sent to the West African
coast. It Ib expected this expedition
will be Instructed to prevent the sacrifice of captives customary on the occasion of the enthronement of monarchs of
Dahomey.	
Festive Students.
Oporto, March 4.—The students here
have formed a league, each member of
which binds himself to insult or assault
the Spanish consul in some manner.
Dominion Parliament.
Ottawa, March 3.—Sir John Macdonald, iu reply to Mr. Innes, said that
when the Government was officially
notified of the selection of Chicago as
the site for the World's Fair in 1302, he
would bring the matter up in tbe House
with a view of securing proper Canadian
representation.
To-night the allegations against General Middleton were discussed. A half-
breed, Bremner, of Battleford, has in a
petition claimed that General Middle-
ton ...; iopiiated furs valued at $5000,
belonging to him, during the rebellion.
They were packed at the General's orders and sent, some to Ottawa, some to
Mr. Hayter Reed, the Indian Commissioner, und aome to Warden Bcdsou, of
the Manitoba Penitentiary. Messrs.
Lister, O'Brien and Laurier attacked
the Government and aaked for a commission of enquiry. Sir J. S. D. Thompson said that as Bremner had instituted
a civil suit it would be well to leave
matters till the court proceedings were
over. Sir Johu Macdonald spoko in a
similar strain. Being pressed by the
Liberal members he .adjourned the
House, and the matter will come up
again as soon as possible.
In the Senate this afternoon Mr. Mclnnes, of British Columbia, moved for a
preliminary survey of the country eaat
of the Rockies, botween Wood Mountains
and Gypross Hills, with a view to irrigation by artesian wells.
On the arrival of the Duke of Con
naught at Vancouver in May, an aide
de-camp of Lord Stanloy will be Bent to
meet him. Hii royal highness has intimated that on hia arrival in Canada no
Sublic demonstration will take place
Ie wishes to pass through the country
as privately aB possible.
Found   Murdered.
Princeton, Ont., March 3.—The murdered man found near Princeton was
positively identified by J. Burcbill, of
Niagara Falls, as C. Bedwell, a young
Englishman, just out from the old couu-
try. He left here about three weeks ago
for the purpose of looking up a suitable
stock farm to purchase. Burcbill had a
letter from him recently, dated London,
Ont. He had not the slightest doubt
that he had been decoyed by some ruffians and murdered for the money in his
SOBsesBlon. Bedwell is a native of Lon-
on, and his father ia an officer in the
British army.
A Miserable Coward.
Syracuse, Feb. 28.—John H. Browne,
at one time clerk in the Canadian Parliament, committed suicide in his room
at the Wells House to-day. His body
was found lying upon the floor of the
apartment by the chambermaid late in
the afternoon. An empty vial which
had contained morphine was tightly
clutched in his left hand and explained
the cause of his demise. Browne's
death reveals a romantic marriage, the
knowledge of which has been carefully
guarded from his family. His mother
and Bister live at "The Grove" on" the
Canadian side of Niagara Falls. The
mother Ib very wealthy and Browne was
an only son. Two yeara ago a beautiful
English girl wub taken into the family
aaa maid, Browne became infatuated
with the girl, and she grew to entertain
a warm friendship for him. His mother
discovered the attachment and warned
him that if he married the girl she
would not only close her doors against
them both, but would disinherit him at
her death. She then dismissed tbe girl.
Soon after this Browne left bomo, ostensibly to attend to some business mutter,
and ipet the girl in Buffalo, where they
became man and wife. The girl insisted on recognition by tlie family, but
Browne kept putting her off until he
could do bo no longer, and, rather than
do it, kiliod himself.
Imperial Parliament.
London, March 3.—In tbe House of
Lords this eveniug, the Marquis of Salisbury, replying to tbo assertions made
by Mr. Labouchero in the House of
Commons, explained tbat he did not
meet General Sir Dighton Probyn with
a view to enabling Lord Somerset to escape. Sir D. Probyn wired him, (Salisbury) asking an interview. Sir D. Probyn did not mention tbe subject of his
requested interview, and be supposed
that it referred to a proposed journev of
the Prince of Wales. He met Sir' D.
Probyn casually iu the railway station
and had with him a brief conversation
in the course of which Sir D. Probyn
mentioned the scandals. Lord Salisbury declared that he never Baid a warrant waa about to be issued for Lord
Somerset, and he did not believe that
General Probyu's character would permit him to do anything with the intention of defeating tlie ends of justice.
Mr. Gladstone said that in moving the
consideration of the amendment of Mr.
Morley, introduced on February 24th,
opposing the motion of Mr. Smith, that
the report of the l\.rnell Special Commission be adopted, he desired to avoid
party recrimination. If the motion of
the Government had sufficed to do justice to the members impugned, be
would have been willing and ready to
support it, but it waa utterly insufficient. Although he deemed it his duty
to criticise some of the statements of the
judges, he believed there was not a line
of their report that was not written in
honor and good faith. But in what respect, he asked, had the judges more
weight and authority than other experienced men in deciding how far crime
in Ireland waa due to the League, or to
the oppressive evictions? The judges
had unearthed an obscure paper called
Irishman, filling aeveral pages of
tlieir report with extracta therefrom, which Archbishop Walsh had
characterised as abominable. Were
they equally liberal in according blame
toother things equally abominable in
dealing with the grand and capital offences, concerning which they were especially directed to enquire7 Alt that
they had said waB that the. letter upon
which the charges were founded waB a
forgery. The report convicted tlie respondents of joining the League with a view
of separating Ireland frotn England.
ThiB occurred in 1880. In 1800 he rejoiced to believe that the idea of separation waB dead, The charges that the
Parnellites in their speeches incited intimidation were ten years old. It was a
dangerous precedent to recur to these
long dates in order to obtain matter
to hurl at political antagonists. Changes,
he Baid, have already taken place in Ireland, and reforms were impending which
owed their impetus to the Parnellites
and would be accomplished without
violence, largely through tlie wise
methods of the Irish patty. The
chargeswere made at randon, but with the
assurance of tlie most careful scrutiny.
For a long time Mr. Parnell had been
pilloried befure the country, and was
not reparation duo him he asked? Surely members ahould not hesitate to givo
what acknowledgment they could to
a man who hnd suffered au enormous
rong.
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach said tliat tlio
report was devoid of political prejudice
and passion, nnd the House certninlv
ought to accept it. Citing Mr. Parnell
as an authority againat the assertion
that the Conservatives before coming
Into office were pledged not to renew
coercion, Sir M. Hicks-Beach demanded tliat Sir William Harcourt apologise
for that calumny. Sir William Harcourt replied that lie had not heard the
statement and then left the house, declaring that he would not stay to be
abused. Sir M. Hicks-Beach continuing, aaid he inferred that the Parnellites
hau voluntarily supported the Conservatives in 1885 in order to equalise
parties and secure the balance of power.

A public meeting was held at Prairie
school house on Saturday, Feb. 22nd.
Mr. James Gray was elected to the chair
and after briefly explaining the object of
the meeting he called ou Mr. Henry Davis to address the meeting.
Mr. Davis announced his success

PROVINCIAUMLIAMENT.
Monday1.   Proceedings.
[From Our Own Correspondent.]
Mr. Speaker took the chair at 2:10
p. m.
Mr. Beayen moved, seconded by Mr.
Orr, the following resolution:
That an order of the House be granted for a printed return of all papers,
correspondence, petitions and telegrams
with reference to the discharge of Mr.
W. A. Starret, late Road Superintendent in Yale District, and the employment of William Bristol in his place-
Carried.
Hon. Mr. Vernon presented the supplementary returns in regard to certain
lands at Chilliwack, outBide tlie C. P. It.
belt. Sent to the printing committee.
The Hon. Mr. Turner asked leave to
introduce a bill intituled "An Aet Respecting Assignments for the benefit of
Creditora."
Bill read a first time and placed ou
the orders of the day for Thursday for
second reading.
Mr. Cunningham moved the following
resolution:
That an Order of'the Houso be granted for a return of the number of applications to be placed upon the voters'
lists in the several electoral districts of
the Province up to the 28th of February,
1890. "
The mover said that what this House
wanted waa to got tho fullest information poBsiblo in regard to tlie population
of tlie Province. It was not only as to
the Mainland that this information was
desired, but in regard to the Island as
well. He believed that Victoria's population had increased at a wonderful rate
during the past year, and it would be
extremely interesting to all tb know just
exactly what the voting strength of tlie
city was. This applied also to the city
and district of New Westminster. The
city which he had the honor to represent had experienced a vast Increase of
population during laat year. This influx
amounted to 25 or 30 per cent., nnd at
tbe present time there waB not a vacant
liouse in tlie city. Families were there
represented by fathers and brothers
looking for homes, nnd finding tlie greatest difficulty in obtaining Bhelter on account of the Bcarcity of houses. This
house famine had became bo great that
the newspapers aaid a return would
have to be made to tlie old mining days
when tents and shanties provided the
shelter of tho inhabitants. This may
be regarded as a splendid sample of progress and proves tliat the Province is
going on steadily, and tliis iiews ought
to be receivod with great satisfaction by
this House; it is eminently encouraging
aud pleasing. There was a mistaken
impression held by immigrants coming
here that if they allowed their names to
be placed on the. voters' lists they were
liable for duty ab jurymen aiid other
disagreeable work au well na liable to
taxation.   It was only by the greateBt
fiersuaaion that those peoplo could be
nduced to allow their names to bo put
down, on account of thiB erroneous impression, This liat will be valuable information as far aa it goes, although it
will have to be carefully and intelligently interpreted. It was not, as lie had
already remarked, n Mainland question
merely, but affected the Ialand quite aa
much. He represented a Mainland city,
but he would like to see Victoria a city
of 50,000 inhabitants in the near future.
(Hear, hear). Should it become such a
city it would be a fine market for the
Fraser River country.
Mr. Orr usked the Hon. the Chief
Commissioner of Lauds uud Works tlie
following questions:
Whether tbe Government or the Chief
CommiBaioner of Lauds und Worka recoived a petition, in October or November last, from the purchasers of Government property iu New Westminster District, requesting the Government to
open certain roads.
Hon, Mr. Vernon—No auch petition
has beeu received.
Mr. Orr—I have reason to believe that
tho petition was presented and received.
Hon. Mr. Vernon—Perhaps the honorable member wilt stand up and make
that assertion.
Mr. Orr declined to stand up.
Hon. Mr. Davie presented the various
communications and documents between
the Attorney-General and the commissioners.
Houso went into adjourned committee on the Railway Bill, Mr. Cunningham in tlie chair. Committee rose and
reported progress and naked leave to alt
again.   Will ait again Tuesday.
Mr. Semlin moved, seconded by Mr.
Beaven, the following resolution:
That a respectful address be presented
to His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor,
requesting him to causo to be sent down
to this Houao copies of all ordera-in-
council and nil correspondence relating
to or in nny way affecting the dismissal
of Archibald Irwin, as Recorder, Assessor and Collector at Granite Citv. Carried.
Mr. Martin presented tbe report of
tlio Committee on Private Bills and
Standing Orders, stating that the preamble had beon proved in the bill of the
National Electric Tramway and Light
Co.   Received.
Mr. Martin also presented a further
roport asking Mr. Speaker's ruling on
tho quostion, "Can tho Committee on
Private Bills hear counsel or othor persons againat a private bill, without a
petition againat the bill first having
boon introduced to tho House?"
Mr. Speaker, aftor the matter tuul
been warmly debated by many of the
membors, stated that hu would give hia
decision next day.
Hon. Mr. Davie moved the third rending of tho Legal Professions Bill (No. 1).
Bill, after considerable discussion, read
a third time.
Mr. Duck naked leave to introduce a
bill entitled "Au Act to amend the
births, deaths and marriages Act." Bill
road a flrat time and aet for aecond read
lug Tuesday.
House adjourned at 5:35 pan. until
the usual hour next day.
NORTH ARM NOTES.
I From Our Own Corresiimi'lenl.l
Relentless winter has at lust relaxed
liis rigid rule. The proverbial "Oregon
Mist" set hi on Friday night. Rain haa
since been falling continuously though
moderately.
On Tueaday the W. C. T. U. held their
regular monthly meeting at tho residence of Mr. Garratt. The attendance
waa very encouraging, considering tlie
fact tliat some of the ladiea came a distance of two miles on foot. Ono new
member was receivod. One subject that
engaged the attention of the meeting was
the current report ttiat intoxicating liquors are regularly aold by steamers at

News liy the Wanderer.
The schooner Wanderer waa spoken
in the Straits on Thursday morning by
tin steamer Rainbow. The Wanderer
Ib returning from a trading trip from the
north, nud reports that sealakina had
been purchased aB far up aa Knight's
Inlet, the seals having been very plentiful close in to the beach this season.
The woather has been very rough, however, which has kept the Indians from
killing a great many. The captain of
the Wanderer suys that the Indiana of
tho northern coaat are well supplied
with whiskey, hut he does not know
how they get it, but from what he can
gather it is sold to them by Americans,
who cruise there in small sloops. No
news of either of the wrecks reported on
the West Const, had been obtained.—

Pork Packing.
The pork packing industry lately established at Enderby, B. C, by Messrs.
Knight A Shaw ia already a competitor
in the British Columbia markets with
eastern and American houses for the
trade in cured meats, aud judging from
tbe sample with which the Sentinel has
been favored, It will be uo mean competitor either. Mr. Wm. Fortune, of
Kamloops, .has been canvassing the
town merchants for ordera for future
ply and he haB been favorably received by everyone. From one merchant he gleaned the information that
he hna aent out of the province annually
over $4000 for cured meats, and taking
his figures aB an average, with six or
eight housea dealing iu the goods the
annual outlay trom Kamloops alone will
average from $24,000 to $30,000. If that
amount ia kept and circulated in thia
section alone it will help materially in
reducing the "hard times" cry so often
heard. The coaat cities and other trade
centres in the province by patronizing
home industry will effectually guarantee the success of the enterprise and
will be the means of keeping in circulation in the province money that heretofore has gone to enrich outsiders, The
proprietors evidently understand their
business thoroughly, and if they maintain the high standard of excellence already attained in curing their moats,
and can supply the trade at figures
lower than outsiders, (as they are now
doing) they are certainly, entitled to the
patronage of every dealer In the province.—Sentinel.

Marrying Vnder Difficulties.
On the outward trip of the Premier
Wednesday last, there were ticketed a
newly wedded pair, both members of
tho great Chinese race. Ah Doo Is a
wealthy Seattle merchant, who haa a
large aud prosperous business there.
He Ib a Christian, speaks English fluently, nnd a gentleman iu every sense of
tnat term. On the 20th ultimo he wbb
married at Maple Ridge, B. C, to Mary
Ah Sing, a pretty little Chinese woman,
born in Victoria, and nlso professing the
Christian faith. They were married by
the Rev. Mr. Bryant with the full Methodist rites, and came to Vancouver happy in the poBBOBsion of each other and
ui the anticipation of undisturbed domestic harmony upon reaching their
home in Seattle. At Port Townsend
they passed the Customs all right, and
did not dream of trouble. At Seattle a
telegram waB put In Ah Doo's hands
from tho Collector at Port Townsend requesting tbe return of himself aud wife
to that port. Ah Doo's papers were all
right, but after the leaving of the Premier the Customs officers began to debate whether they had the right to pass
Mrs. Doo. What their decision was is
evident from the telegram they subsequently Bent to Seattle. When Mr. aud
Mra. Doo returned to Port Townaond
they were Informed that before sho
could enter ahe would require to produce
sufficient proof of her liaving been born
a Britiah aubject, etc., etc. Mr. Ah Doo
consulted legal authority in Port Towns-
end aud deemed it advisable to return
to Vancouver with hia bride, wliich he
did last evening on the Premier. They
took rooms at the Gold Houae upon
their arrival, where they now are. They
will go to Victoria to-day to procure two
witneaseB to tlie fact that Mrs. Doo waa
born on British soil, wheu their troubles
wilt bo probably at an end. Such at
least ia Mr. Doo's vorslon of it.—Newt-
Advertiser, March 9.

claimB on account of licenses that may
be issued. Hon. Mr. Robson telegraphed on Wednesday that the Provincial
Government accepted the draft except
the clause just quoted. The Government considered the matter, and as no
licenses have been issued, decided to
consent to eliminate the clause, the two
Governments thereby, being agreed. It
is thought the settlement will now be
acceptable to both parties.
THE FRENCH METHOD.
"WHAT DOES IT MEAN?"
Considkrahlk perturbation has been
caused on the Mainland, at least, by a
little incident which varied the monotony of the Houso proceedings at the
Provincial capital on Friday laat, and
more than oue Mainland journal has
oracularly exclaimed, "What does it
mean?" thereby sagely implying that it
means a great deal. The incident iu
question consisted, in short, of a motion
by Hon. Mr. Davie, the Attorney-General, to the effect that the return of the
number of voters on the respective
voters' lists of each of the electoral districts of the Province, ordered by the
Houae on the 7th of February laat,
ahould embrace those persons on the
list up to and Including the 28th of February, 1890, and of an amendment to
the motion, hy the Hon. John, Robson,
Premier and Provincial Secretary, to the
effect that the return Bhould include all
applications to be placed oii the register
up to date named; the original motion
being carried.
Unless it ia to be taken as one of
those flukes that will occasionally happen even in the beBt regulated families,
the incident, it must be confessed, does
not show a very good entente between
the two honorable members of the Government concerned. That it shows,
however, as haB been hinted, that the
Attorney-General is so consummately
idiotic aa to hope to fix the basis
for the approaching redistribution
by any such shallow, bare-faced device as would be implied in keeping to the atrictly logal voters' list
and affecting to shut hia eyes and those
of the rest of the Houae to the large
number of applications to be placed upon
the register, that have not yet matured,
is almoat too absurd to be entertained
for a moment.   No; the Attomey-Gen-
> eral, aa the legal head-light in the Cabinet and the House, with true lawyer
instinct and persistency, was probably
merely sticking up for points, he wanted
everything done decently and in order,
aud he was undoubtedly within the
strict technical rights of the case when
insisting that the "return of the number
" of voters on the respective voters'
lists" should only include those who
were actually on the lists—that ia thoae
whose applications, by being two full
months on the form for that purpose,
had matured. t The Hon. the Premier,
on the other hand, with a mind unhampered by legal training and restrictions,
viewed the matter iu a broader light
and, therefore, moved that the return
should include all the applications up to
date mentioned as well as the names
actually on the lists.
, TIiIb view, we think, is borne out by
tbe fact that Mr. Cunningham's motion
iu the Heuae, yeaterday, for a return of
the number of applicanta to be placed
ou the provincial voters' liata up to February 28th, was, as will be seen bythe
report elsewhere, carried unanimously.
The Attorney-General or no oue else
could have expected to prevent auch a
return, and the Attorney-General can
hardly be so blinded and stupefied by
sectionalism and narrow-mindedness as
to imagine that mere quibbles will have
any part in settling the redistribution
question. We have a better opinion of
the Attorney-General'b astuteness, or
rather common sense, to say nothing of
his honesty and fairneaB, to suppose
anything of the sort. It Ib generally
conceded that the formulation of a fair
redistribution scheme for the whole
Province will be a matter of no little
difficulty at the preaent time, owing to
there being no recent census to furnish
authoritative figures on population and
Other particulars. In the absence of
thiB, all possiblo information bearing
upon the aubject will be eagerly availed
of by the Government and the Houae, if
they are honest iu the matter, and sufficient evidence has not yet transpired to
prove the contrary.
For some yeara past, observes an exchange, France has had to face an annual deficit in her treasury of over $100,-
000,000 a year, and it is not surprising
that her Minister of Finance has announced that it is absolutely necessary
that the receipts of the Government
should be increased. With this end in
view he proposes the adoption of a pro*
tective tariff Btill higher than that at
present hi operation; in other words, the
scheme Ib that the heavy burden of taxation already borne by the great mass of
the people shall be made heavier still,
This is a remedy for national financial
ills, however, continues tbe journal referred to, wliich has its limit, and there
is good reason to believe that the limit
has even now been reached. It is not
unlikely that M. Rouvier's plan, instead
of averting the financial crisis which
seems to be impending, will hasten it.
To many people it has often been a
source of surprise that France should
have been able apparently to prosper In
spite of her enormous national debt and
her extraordinary expenditures for military and naval purposes. Her debt is
tho largest in the world, and she not
only supports the Becond largest army
and navy in Europe, but is constantly
increasing both. And yet She seems
able to carry these tremendous burdens,
and at the same time to make a aatiafactory progress. The explanation moat
frequently given of thiB surprising fact
is that her extended peasant proprietorship enables her triumphantly to sur*
mount all her difficulties, Tliis, however, has just been shown by official
stat iatica to be a fallacy.
It ia quite true that an enormous number of her people are landed proprietors,
but an enquiry recently concluded haa
brought to light the fact that these proprietors in reality possess but a small
portion of the soil. A report made last
year by the Director of Agriculture bIiowb
that seventy-five per cent, of the total
number of landed proprietors poasess
only ten per cent, of the entire area of
the country; thirteen per cent, own
twelve per cent, of the area; and twelve
per cent, posaeaa seventy-seven per cent,
of the area. The trouble is that the
holdings of the great mass of the peasant
proprietors are too small. No fewer than
about 10,500,000 of the total number of
14,000,000 are holders of leas than two
hectares each, and they are the unfortunates upon whom the burden of taxation chiefly falls. Millions of French
farmers, it Is declared, are crushed by
mortgages, the total amount of which is
over 14,000,000,000.
The reault of thia state of affairs is thua
described by a recent writer on the sub*
ject: " Probably not for many centuries
" haB the surface been more poorly cut-
" tivated. Official investigations show
" that one-third of France Ib totally uncultivated; another third yields but
" half harvests; while the third third
" produces anything at all only under
" conditions that are positively grinding.
" The position of the French Govern-
" ment in regard to taxation is like
" Paddy's toward heads: when you see
" any property, tax it. The burden that
" falls on the agriculturist iB enough to
" discourage cultivation. The more he
" works and producea, the more extern-
" aively is he the victim of the tax-col-
"lector." And now M. Rouvier proposes to increase the revenues of the
Government by taxing these poor people
Btill further. He may learn, however,
thinks the exchange quoted in the first
place, that it is impossible to draw blood
from stones, and that if the financial ruin
which ia now staring the country In the
face Ib to be warded off, some otlier plan
muat be adopted than the imposition of
additional taxation upon a people already
taxed to death.'
THE MINERALBEIit SETTLEMENT.
Nkwh was roceived at Victoria last
week that a settlement had-at last been
reached between the Dominion nnd
Provincial Government a in the matter
of the mineral holt in thla Province,
which has been pending for a consider-
tline. The settlement gives satisfaction
on the whole. By tho terms of the compact the Dominion Government agrees
not to make any leases on other disposition of any minerals In the railway
belt, except coal, otlier than by patent
or fee simply, to the intent that the
minerals In the belt, other than coal,
may be administered under the Provincial mining law. All lands of the Dominion offered for sale from time to time
within the belt containing minerals
within the meaning of the British Columbia Mineral Act, not being Indian
reserves or settlements, aud not being
under license or lease from tbe Dominion Government, shall bo open to purchase by the Provincial Government at
tho price of fivo dollars per acre. All
lands derived by the Province under
the preceding clause Bhall be Bet apart
from alienation by the Dominion upon
the Provincial Government making a
written application therefor, with description sufficient to identify it, the
money consideration thereupon being
Immediately payable on the lands thus
tobe acquired. If surveyed, such money
shall be accepted as conclusive; but on
unsurvcyd lands the Province pays the
cost of survey before a Bale can be effected. All the minerals, including gold
and silver, which may be in the Indian
reserve in British Columbia, shall be
administered by the Indian Department,
and not by tho Provincial Government.
In the draft forwarded to Victoria last
week an additional clause appears in*
demnifying the Dominion against any
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
President Hippolyte, of Hayti, hav
ing found it necessary to leave Port au
Prince on huainess for a few days last
month, adopted a unique plan to pre*
vent revolution during his absence, says
an exchange. He took with him every
resident of the capital who waa known
to be disaffected. It is not likely that
they accompanied him willingly, but the
invitation to join the Presidential party
was put hi such a way bb to render refusal to accept it dangerous.
The financial collapse in the Argentine Republic haB been as great as the
boom which preceded and caused It.
The land fever has completely died out,
and it is now Impossible to make sales
at any price. In October last they
amounted to about $40,000,000, and In
December they were under $2,000,000.
Foreign investors have Buffered enormous losses, and it Ib safu to say that
they will fight shy of the* country for
some years to come. The inflation per
capita is said to have exceeded anything
known in England since the dayB of the
South Sea bubble.
Lieut,-Governor Royal was announced
to leave Regina last Wednesday for the
Mormon settlement at Lee's Creek, and
it is surmiBed that the purpose of hia
visit was to ascertain whether polygamy
was really being practised in the colony
or not. It is scarcely necessary to say,
however, that official visits of thia sort
are worthless bo far as the acquisition of
information Ib concerned, if it is to the
interest of the parties visited to prevent
the truth becoming known. If the Dominion Government desires to ascertain
the precise state of affairs at Lee's
Creek it must adopt a very different
plan.—Ex.
Recent advices from Samoa state that
a Government scandal is agitating the
people of that small country. According to the balance sheet of the late
Tamasese Government, of which the
German consul, Brandeia, was the head,
there should be about $12,000 worth of
property and upwards of $2,000 in cash
to hand over to the Government of the
reinstated King Malletoa. It seems,
however, that not only is all the surplus
cash gone, bnt the property is mortgaged to a German firm, and all that is
left to represent $80,000 revenue collected during the reign of Tamasese is a few
municipal effects.    What better proof
could be desired that the Samoans are
rapidly becoming civilized.—Ex,
Mr. Henry Gladstone, whose marrfage
to Mias Maud Rendel took place in London recently, ia the fourth son of the
Grand Old Man. He waa educated at
Eton, on leaving which he did not proceed to the university, but went at once
into business. At flrat it waa intended
that he should join the old Gladstone
firm. But subsequently his programme
waB altered, and he entered the firm of
Ogilvy, Gillander & Co., East India
merchants at Calcutta. Mr. Gladstone
ia dark and clean shaven. In features
he is like liis brother Herbert, but Is
much taller and lacks the thick curly
hair of the latter. His tastes are essentially active. He is great at polo, fond
of most field sports and a great shot.
In politics his views are those of his
father, but aa yet he haa given no public expression thereto.
The Akademische Monatsheftc, a students, magazine, ia responsible for the
statement that Prince Bismarck, during
his university life, fought at least 60
duels. When studying at Goettingen he
had alone with the Brunsviga corps fifteen fights. The corps the Chancellor
belonged to is the Hannovera, whose archives contain the records of the combative propensities of the student Bismarck. Being a man of powerful physique and six feet in height, he seems to
have mostly escaped unhurt, the more
so aB he was an excellent fencer. The
only nurk of a cut he still carries he received from Herr Biedenweg, a member
of the corps of the Bremenses, who died
some time ago aB judge of the Superior
Court in Stade. When the latter as
member of the German Parliament, one
night was prosent at a beer reception
the chancellor gave to the deputies his
former adversary pretended that his cut
had lieen "iukommentmaessig;" that is,
against the rules, which Bledonweg
smilingly denied.—Ex.

who used one of their heads as a hammer. Once highly reverenced and even

Worth Ten Dead Men.
The report that Mr. Joseph Dare,
keeper of the Esquimalt lighthouse, had
beeu shot through the brain aud instantly killed, was freely circulated on
the streets yesterday afternoon, and
created no little alarm among the friends
of that gentleman in this city. Only the
barest and most meagre details were obtainable until evening, and It was a
matter of speculation whether murder
had been done, or, which was equally
improbable, Mr. Dare had suicided. The
only definite information to be obtained
was that an Indian had arrived in Esquimalt at-about 3 o'clock bearing a note
from Mrs. Dare to Officer Campbell to
the effect that her husband had been
shot through the head and instantly
killed. Officer Campbell at once reported to Sergeant Langley, and with
the naval doctor and several others
started for the island on which the
lighthouse Ib situated. Oh their return
it was learned that the affair was not
nearly so bad as at first reported. The
light Keeper was far from dead, and with
care and attention was in no danger of
death from the results of a most painful
accident of which he had been the vic-
tlme. He had been out shooting, and, as
far too frequently happens, his gun had
burst, throwing the breach baek and into his right eye, the Bight of which waB
ruined forever. The unfortunate man
fell insensible, and the blood from thiB
terrible wound soon covered his face and
body. Finding him thus, his wife at
once came to the conclusion that he was
dead and Immediately sent to Esquimalt
for assistance. On the arrival of the
doctor and his party Mr. Dare was restored to consciousness, and the facts of
the case wore ascortained. It is confidently anticipated that he will suffer no
more serious consequences from the accident than the partial loaa of hia sight,
a terrible affliction truly, but not so terrible as the, as first reported, loss of life.

CURE  FOR  HOARSENESS.
The   Treatment  Prescribed   for   ft   Self-
Willed Singer by the Great Frederick.
There Ib a story told of the manner
ln which Frederick the Great dealt with
a prima donna of the period who waa inclined to disappoint the public with Uttle reason. The great artist seemed to
catch a cold, whioh had the effeot of rendering her hoarse, and consequently unable to sing when anybody or any thin*
displeased her. One day a certain opera
was to he performed at Berlin before the
King himself. At the appointed hour
the manager came forward and said:
"Ladles and gentlemen, we grieve to
inform you that our prima donna has a
sore throat, and that the representation
announced can not, therefore, take
place." The stolid Teutonic audience
seemed no whit surprised and waB moving out tranquilly when the King rose
and commanded the musicians to keep
their places. The audience Bat down
again and waited patiently on events.
In leas than a quarter of an hour the
manager reappeared and spoke as follows: "Ladies and gentlemen, I have
the most unfeigned pleasure in informing you that our prima donna is completely oured of he.*Boro throat and will
have tho honor to sing before you tonight." Surely enough the famous
singer aoon appeared, and never had
sung better. Her triumph was complete: The King's prescription had
been a very simple one. The prima
donna, having dismissed the unhappy
manager, was Bitting comfortably beforo
the fire In her own room, actually
pleased with having spoiled the pleasure of several hundreds of persona,
when the door was violently thrown
open and there entered an officer, followed by four dragoons. "Mademoiselle," quoth the officer, "the King, my
master, haa Bent me to ask after your
health." "The King Ib very good. I
have a bad sore throat." "His Majesty
knows it, and has oharged me to take
you at once to the military hospital,
where you will be cured in a few days."
Mademoiselle turned palo. "You are
jesting," she simpered; but Prussian
officers, she was informed, never jested.
The Lieutenant gave the orders to the
men, who seized mademoiselle and carried her out
A coach was in attendance, the lady
was deposited therein, the officer took
his place beside her and off they went,
the dragoons riding alongside. In a
few seconds, "Stay," said the lady, "I
think _ feel better." "The King Is
anxious, mademoiselle, that you ahould
feel quite restored, and even that you
Bhould sing to-night" "I wiU try,"
murmured the prisoner. "Back to the
theater!" cried the officer to tho coachman. Arrived there, mademoiselle began to think she had yielded too
easily. "1 will sing, since his Majesty
•ommands me," she said, "but heaven
knows how." "You will sing," returned
the officer, "like the great artist you
are," "I shall sing like an artist with
ft bad cold." "I think not" "And
why?" "Beoause a couple of dragoons
will be in attendance, and at the least
eoum they havo ordors to oarry you off
again to the military hospital." Tbe
hoarseness was now completely gone.—

18 CRIME A  DISEASE?
The Bert Treatment for Those AJUcte-d
with Criminal Symptoms.
In recent times the Idea has become
very prevalent among a certain class of
sentimentalists that crlmo ls not an indication of Innate depravity, but
a symptom of mental and physical
disease, or an inheritance from
some criminal ancestor, anil, therefore, the much-abused murderor or robber Is not a bad man, but only an unfortunate one, deserving of pity and
care rather than punishment A sick
man, they say, ought not to be Imprisoned, and one who is staggering undor
a load of homicidal tendencies bequeathed to him by his grandfather Is
not worthy of death, even if he doea occasionally Bond some of his loss unfortunate fellow-beings Into the next world.
A man physically and mentally sound ia
less likely to commit criminal aots than
one with a diseased body or abnormal
mental aotion, and the history of the
notorious Jukes family proves beyond
question, that from a single orlminal
ancestor may spring a long line of descendants, a majority of whom will be
enemies to tho welfare of sooiety. But
granting that a tendency to crime may
be inherited, It must originate somewhere, and if a man's ancestor may have
been ft spontaneous orlminal, as it were,
another man of the present day may
also be laying up, on his own responsibility, a heritage of orlme for his unborn
descendants. If the abnormal tendencies can be eradicated, and the orlminal
made a useful member of society, every
effort should be made to that end; but,
if crime is a disease, lt seems—at leaat
In lto more serious manifestations—to
be an inourable one. The percen tage of
reformed criminals is dlscouraglngly
small, and that of those convtoted for
subsequent offenses disproportionately
large, The hest treatment of suoh persons is a perplexing question, but the
right of self-preservation is paramount
to every other consideration, and the
morbid unwholesome sympathy shown
by an increasing class of people toward
those who are so muoh out of harmony
with their social environment, will only
result In great injury to the orderly and
law-abiding classes of sooiety, without
causing any decrease of orlme or conferring any permanent benefit upon the
criminals themselves.—Popular Science

DOLLIES THAT TALK.
FowtblUUea of   the  Phonograph Wham
Used to Amoie the Children.
The Edison works at Orange are run*
nlng these dayB on a new delight for
little folks. They are at work on a lot
of 60,000 dolls. Marvelous dolls are
these. Not qnly do these dolls have
sure-enough hair and eyebrows, not
only do they roll their eyes about as if
looking for mother, not only oan their
oyes be olosed when they are tuoked into dainty little cribs, with snowy linens
and bright silks to cover them, not only
can they walk and clap their hands—
they can talk and sing. It Is sure-
enough talk, too, and not the exasperating con-binatlon of sounds produced by
reeds in the dolls hitherto called talking babies.
Great larks the little folks are going
to have with theae dolls, for mere talk
is but one of their accomplishments.
They oan Bing as well, and they oan
talk and sing ln many foreign languages. My little lady will go abroad,
taking along her doll that Is able to tell
how Jaok Spratt oould eat no fat and
his wife oould eat no lean, and suoh
other nursery rhymes as please little
folkB. After a few months in Paris my
little lady has learned to talk Frenoh
from a pretty Frenoh nurse, while her
doll may very likely say something like
this:
Dors, enfant cherll
Dors belli.
Ton petit ventre
Est vide de pain,
Hals a aa place
Pour tout besoln
Tu as un phono'
Du grand Edison.
Or may be Berlin is the plaoe of residence, and the make-bolleve mamma's
tongue has got some of tho kinks and
twists in it which young Yankee tougues
acquire in the fatherland, while the
doll, when bed-time comes, buries Its
head lnadowny little pillow, closes Its
eyes and says, softly:
.eh leb bin so mudo, aoh Ich bin so mitt;
Mochte gem zu Bette gehen,
Morgen welder fruli aufstehen.
From tbe lips of a beauty of Castile it
may be made to say:
Ah, mi vldo, ml corazon;
Ml pan de manteea, ml chucheron.
To completo its education and round
out the interest to.be excited in the visitors to the make-believe mamma, the
doll should bo able to say: "Och, Norah,
igra, it's glad Oi am to see yez," and
that will be aa eaay for the doll tq Bay
us are the softer words of the nursery
itongs. Indeed it will be by no means
nocossary for tho doll to go abroad to
retail theso accomplishments, for the
(hop thut turns out tho doll turns out
Jhe tongues that speak all languages.
The peculiarity of thoso dolls is that
hoy aro modifications of Edison's pho-
■iograph. Aa already intimated In the
I'Yench rhyme, the interior of the doll
■ :i >n la inn mechanism for operating a
phonograph. The cylinder of wax Is
mudo hui'dor than when used in the
plibtiograph; so that it will stand rough
u ugo, und it is, of courso, by no means
Art lurge. Thoso cylinders are stumped
with nil sorts uf Mother Goose melodies
nud nursery rhymos, and, as the dolls
ir-u to bo sold everywhere, the cylinders
in vo to bo impressed with all sorts of
.miguagoa. Uuving become tired of
nursory talk in English, the owner of
she doll has only to opon Its baok, Lake
jut tho cylinder and substitute one In
^ny sort of language desired. The dolls
will cost, poi'baps, three dollars more for
having the ability to talk within limits
just as real folks do.—N. V. Sun.
UNDERPAID  MINISTERS.
Why, Deipite Constant Financial Worry,
They Live Longer Tluui Other Men.
Life insuranco men will all tell you
that ministers of religion as a olass live
longer than any other. It is confirmed
hy tho statistics of all those who calculate upon human longevity. Why Is it?
Thoro is moro draft upon the nervous
•system than In any other profession,
and thoir toll is more exhausting. I
huvo soen ministers kept on miserable
ai ponds by parsimonious congregations
.vim wondered at the dullness of the
.sermons, whon the men of Qod were perplexed almost to death by questions of
livelihood, and had not enough nutritious food to keep any fire In their
temperament. No fuel, no fire. I have
some Union soen tho inside of the life of
many of the American clergymen—never
aeoopting thoir hospitality, because they
can not afford It; but I have seen them
trugglo on with salaries of five or six
hundred dollars a year—the average
less than that—their strugglo well depleted by the Western missionary who
-uiys in a letter: "Thank you for your
lust remittance; until it came we had
not any meat In our house for one year;
and all last winter, although it was a
lovoro winter, our children wore their
summer clothing."   And these men of
lod I find tn different parts of the land
struggling against annoyances and ex-
iterations innumerable, some of them
week after week entertaining agents
who have mups to sell, and submitting
themselves to all styles of annoyanoe,
and yet without complaint and cheerfulness of soul. How do you account
for the fact that these life-insurance
men tell us that ministers as a olass live
longer than any others? It ts beoause
of the joy of their work, the joy of
tbe harvest field, the joy of greeting
prodigals home to their Father's house.

BADLY FRIGHTENED,
How the Approach of a Mountain Uw
Affected a Horse. <
I had the opportunity of observing the
effect on a horse when ridden ne»r ft
mountain Hon.
It was late ono night in the autumn.
I was riding along a lonely mountain
road, and when only about two miles
from the town or mining oamp I heard
tho cry of tho mountain Hon.
My horse at once showed fear and refused to move forward. His trembling
was so Intense that he fairly shook me
tn tho saddle. To whip and spur he paid
no attention.
Indeed, it was only by tho strongest
effort that I could prevent him from
turning and bolting tn the direction we
had come from. A crashing in the
brush a short distance in advance of me
increased tho horse's fear and resttve-
ness to such an extent as almost to unhorse me.
Wo both knew full well what that
crashing meant, but I was also well satisfied that the beast would not troublo
us, beoause I knew that only ashort distance across the hill was a slaughter
house, whither I judged the terror of
the mountains was journeying.
Although quite a cold night, I found
my horse sweating as freely beoause of
hts fright as if I had ridden htm on a
dead run for miles.—Chambers' Journal.
OM TeeuowBli'■ Powder-Born*

MARVELS OF  HYPNOTISM.
Experiment* Whioh Aro Baffling to the
Ordinary Comprehension.
The end I have ever held before my
eyes, then, and whioh I hope I have
never lost from view, is this: To study
the hypnotic phenomena according to a
strictly scientific method and for this
purpose to employ processes purely
physical and which can always be compared with one another, so that the results obtained by me may be rigorously
tested by all observers who shall use
the same processes under the same conditions. Take one example from among
a -thousand. I present to a woman patient in the hypnotic state a blank leaf
of paper and say to her: "Here Ib my
portrait; What do you think of lt? Is it
a good likeness?" After a moment's
hesitation Bhe answers: "Yes, indeed,
your photograph; will you give tt to
me?" To impresB deeply ln the mind
of the subject this imaginary portrait I
point with my finger toward one ot the
four sides of the square leaf of paper,
and tell her tbat my profile looks in
that direction; I -describe my clothing.
The image being now fixed in her mind
I take that leaf of paper and mix lt with
a score of other leaves precisely like it
I then hand the whole paok to the patient, bidding her go ovor them and let
mo know whether sho finds among these
n riy thing she bas seen before. She be-
jTiiw to look at the leaves one after another, and aB soon as her eyes fall
upon the one flrst shown to her (I had
mode upon It a mark that she oould not
discern) forthwith she exclaims:
"Look, your portrait!" What ls more
curious still, if I turn the leaf upside
down, as soon as her eyes rest upon it
she turns it over, Baying that my photograph ls on the obverse. I then convoy to her the order that she shall continue to see the portrait on the blank
paper even after the hypnosis has passed.
Then I awaken her and again hand to
her the pack of papers, requesting her
to look over them. She bandies them
just as before when Bhe was hypnotized,
and utters the same exclamation:
"Look, your portrait!" If now I tell her
that she may retire, Bhe returns to ber
doraltory, and her flrst care will be to
show to her companions the photograph
I have given her. Of course, her companions, not having received the suggestion, will see only a blank leaf of papor without any trace whatever of a
portrait, and will laugh at our subject
and treat her aB a visionary. Furthermore, thla suggestion, thts hallucination, will, if I wish, continue sovoral
days; all I have to do Is to express the
wish to tbo patient before awakening
her.
The foregoing experiment has been
made hundreds of times by me and hy
others, and the faet oan easily be substantiated; their objectivity is as complete as oould be wished in researches
of thts kind. Hypnotism Ib directly
amenable to our means of Investigation,
and must needs be an Integral part of
the known domain of science; to that
goal our efforts ought to be directed.—

A BIG SNAKE STORY.
How   the CrlDo ot   Bt. Lucia   Swallow.
Serpenta Larger Than Itself.
No part of the West Indies ts so rioh In
Bnake stories as St Lucta. Froude tells
how this fer de lance hunts bts human
prey by creeping along a garden path until the guileless tourist falls foul of him.
when in the flash of the eye the florce
boast has stabbed him with fangs that
never do less than kill. Coleridge, a
nophew of the poet, who visited the
island in 1825, gives the gentle reader a
shudder by Buying tbatnoteven on horseback Is the Inquisitive traveler sufe fiom
a savago monster known as tho wood
slave, whose bite Is as deadly us that oi
Froude's horror and whose instincts are
no leas desperate. Neither ot these
gentlemen had seen any Bnake in Ht
Lucia; no more have I. But It will
never do to leave the Island without
something on this subjeot more authoritative than the yarn of an engineer
sergeant
I therefore take pleasure In assuring
prospective travelers to this place that
in 1844 St Lucia was pronounced to bo
"Infested by countless reptiles," and
this from the pen of one who had resided thirteen years tn the place, Mr.
Breen. But hiB snake Btory differs materially from those of both Froude and
Coleridge in that he appears to know
neither fer de lance nor wood slave, but
tells of a ubiquitous "yellow serpent,"
whose bite, however, may be effectually
cured If promptly attended to, and from
what I learned ln Castries I am disposed
to baok the statement of the thirteen-
year resldenter bb against those of the
two gentlemen flrst quoted, though tho
one be a historian and the other the son
of ft Bishop. Thia yellow serpent, however, has an enemy called the orlbo,
who Is both aggressive and powerful,
and attacks hts yellowshtp at sight and
without provocation. Mr. Breen Bays
that the yellow serpent ln these combats usually comes off seoond best, and
that the orlbo la so clever that when ho
Is through with the flght he rolls about
on the leaves of a plant called pled
poule, which operation notonlycounteracts any evil effects trom the other's
bite, but aots as a tonto for more flght of
the same kind, so that ultimately tbe
orlbo Is sure to gain the victory, whtch
he signalizes by swallowing bis victim
whole, commencing wtth the head.
Sometimes the crlbo la called upon to
swallow an adversary longer and bigger
than himsolf, an operation that might
discourage one less fruitful in resources.
The work Is accomplished tn this wise:
The crlbo swallows as much as the cubic
contents as his skin permits, whereupon
he goes to sleep until time nerves hlm
tor a Second effort.   He  then sucks In
what ls needful to keep himself distended, and thereupon onoe more Becks
rest and sleep—repeating these operations until the apparently-impossible
task ls accomplished—namely: swallowing more than himself.—Leeds (Eng.)

Speaking of the various grades of Balmon in the English market, the Liverpool correspondent of the London Grocer
says: "Machine-packed fish from the
Columbia and other rivers meets with
much disfavor, and the sooner packers
are alive to the necessity for a clean cut
carefully hand-packed tish the better for
all concerned. The 'Esquimaux' brand
arrived this year of an extremely inferior
grade, whilst laBt year it was one of the
best on the market. Packers need to be
reminded that consumers hore are excellent judges, aud bad qualities do incalculable harm to the trade."
Messrs. W. Wowl, of Wood & Tuustall,

this week, and found the roads iu a very
bad condition with drifts. Work is progressing in tho mines, some 20 men
being employed nud a high grado of ore
is being taken out. The machinery for
the mines has not all reached there yet,
tlie ongine being on the rood. The
water is beginning to trouble tho minors
at the bottom of the shaft, and probnbly
will be a source of annoyance until the
machinery is iu place and a pump at

The Agassis Assault Case.
ThiB case came before the district
court thiB morning, Capt. Pittendrigh,
J.P., and Mr. P. McTieman, J. P., presiding, and occupied most of the day.
The case was Walker vs McDonald for
assault, The plaintiff claimed, and
proved by hiB witnesses, Lamb and
Walker, that McDonald found hia way
into the house of J. E. Walker and assaulted him. McDonald and his witneBS,
Holtby, claimed and swore to the reverse
of these statements, but admitted that
there had been a dispute. The ovidence
on the whole was vory conflicting,
and it was mado clear tliat the parties
on one side or the other were guilty of
perjury. Tho court decided that McDonald was guilty, and the charges
?roved, and fined him $20 and costs.
he court further declared that the noxt
case of this kind would bo sent up for
trial. Mr. Jenns appeared for plaintiff
and Mr. Cherry for defendant.

The Fire Brigade Improvements.
The Fire and Light Committee is
strongly imbued with the spirit of progress, and is fully alive to the requirements of the city in the direction of an
efficient protection syatem. The report
presented at the Council meeting last
night shows that the committee has paid
strict attention to its duties, and that the
fire department will not suffer in the
present Council's bauds. The committee recommend the purchase of another
fire engine, and the matter will come
bofore the Council for diacuaaion nt an
early date. One thousand feet of now
hose, two hose carts, and several patent
fire extinguishers are to be purchased
immediately, and a stoker is to lie appointed as a permanent addition to the
fire brigade. One of the best provisions
of the report is that which provides for
the payment of the men who turn out
regularly to fires, For eaoh time the
Hyacks turn out every regularly enlisted
member who reports for duty will be
paid a fair day's wages as a recompense
for damages done to clothing, loss of
time and other contingencies. This will
be good news to the Hyaoks, who will
not fall to appreciate the efforts of the
fire committee on their behalf.

On motion the council resolved to accept Capt. Terhune's offer for a continuance of the North Arm steamer aervice!
subsidizing the line to the extent of $50
per month, the balance to be contributed
by subscription.
Aid. Sinclair strongly urged that tho
Dominion Government bo petitioned to
give the line a small subsidy. He
thought a petition of this kind would be
successful in view of tbe importance of
the mail service to the North Arm.
The City Clerk said the Board of Trade
had communicated with the Government on this subjoct, and had ascertained that the ninilB for the North Arm had
been sent by the way of Vancouvor at
the request of the North Arm people,

Mail Service.   Carried.

city weigh scale was agitating the public. Such a convenience was very necessary considering the large quantity of
produce and coal handled in the city,
and the city Bhould own nnd control the
scales.
Aid. Sinclair thought the scales ahould
be owned by a private party.
Aid. Shiles was of the opinion that the
scales should be put dowu, aud a by-law
passed regulating the same. The scales
would be a boon to the whole city.
Aid. Johnson explained the benefit
of the Bcales and he moved seconded by
Aid. Smither, that a city weighing machine be procured aud put down iu some
suitable locality.
The resolution carried.
On motion the Board of Works was
empowered to call for tenders for grading a new street from Montreal to

and cared for by one or the other of
thein, and that if necessary the preaent
existing Fire By-Law be ao amended na
to make them aubject at all times to the
order of the chief engineer. Clause
adopted.
(7) We would recommend that the
council do favorably conaider the recommendation of Chief Ackerman: That in
the event of the company being called
out to a tire, the men receive a fair days
puy for their services by way of compensation for clothing destroyed.
The principle of this clause was adopted, una the clause waB referred back for
