Victoria Feb. 27th���The School
Bill has been considered in committee and stands for further amendments.
The bill to reduce the deposit in
Elections from $200 to $100 has
passed its third reading.
A bill to grant 808,000 acres of
land to the Columbia and Western
Railway (the C. P. R.) has been
brougi down by message. It is
reporte lhat the government has
had some trouble in getting tbeir
supporters into line on this Bill
Which will be opposed by the Libera.-, ii   the House.
The estimates are expected down
this week and probably next week
will see the session brought to a
Startling evidence was given today by Jas. Anderson in the Kaien
Island investigation to the effect
that he ,.Anderson) acting for Larson entered into a signed agreement
with Morse, of the G. T. P.,
whereby Anderson and Larsen
were 10 receive $40,000 for the
Townsit. at Kaien Island if that

here are wondering if the Lieut.-
Governor will interfere in this>

against   John   McKee,   has    beet;

After approaching Mr. McKee's
lawyer requesting a settlement,
which was flatly retused except
through the court, the case was
withdrawn by complainant.
At the Police Court, this morning, complainant made application
to withdraw the charge which was
granted. The question of costs was
lelt to the lawyers to settle, defendant strongly urging that complainant should foot the bill.

The adjounx-1 puMic meeting at
which this matter will be discussed,
will convene on Saturday next, tbe
loth inst., at 2 P"-. in tl,e Town
In order to satisfy gossip, we
wish to say that the notice ot the
issue ot the summons was published by special request from W. E.
Curtis, who is not only a Justice of
the Peace but a Stipendiary Magistrate. Mr. McKee having been the
subject of several articles with regard to the Reeveship, we felt it
to be our duty to the public to give
publicity to what, according to the
wording of the charge, appeared to
have been a terrible crime. The
manner in which the charge has
been withdrawn does not afford
Mr. McKee an opportunity of defending himselt, wbich fact is keenly felt by him. It is a very serious matter to lay such a charge
against a person and much grievous
harm, socially, is liable to result
from the fact that the accused one
is not giveu the opportunity to defend himselt publicly.
Saturday's  football f.inte played
between   Ladner   and   Columbian
College junior teams resulted in
victory for  the students by a score
of 2 goals to uil.
The team lined up as follows:
College���Goal, H.  Betts;  backs,
Parkinson aud Kirkpatrick;   hall
backs, P. Miller, Wilson,  Webster;
forwards.     Kenney,     Crow.     VV
Miller (captain), Smith and Gilley..

tain), II. Davis.
Referee, W. D. Betts.
Timekeeper, D. Calder (College).
Linesmen ��� College, Lloyd Sip-
prell; Ladner, P. Slater. ���
The game was played in W. H
Ladner's field, adjoining the B..p
tist Church, and the boys wish to
take this opportunity of thanking
the Reeve very kindly for his generosity in allowing them the tree
use of the grounds.
The local basketball boys were
surprised at their ability to hold at
bay. as they did, such an active
and well practised team as the Col
umbian College seniors proved to
be. The game was fast and exciting from first till last and though
won bv tbe visitors with a score ot
20 points to 12 the game was a
good one from the spectators' point
of view.
The local boys possess a lot of
good material for a' fast team and,
with a little practice, the team here
will compare very favorably with
almost any iu the immediate neighborhood.
Following is tbe line-up of the
teams with the number of points
scored by each:
Right guard���Sutherland   2
Left guard���Calder  o
Centre���Peele ���������.. 3
Right forward���Turnbull  10
Lett forward���Johnston  8
Right guard���Harris   o
Left guard���Bugge  o
Centre���W. H.  Wilson  4
Right forward���Siddall   o
Left forward���Betts  8
Referee���Watson Miller.
Timekeepers���F.  J.   MacKenzie
i and Prof. Davidson.
It   may  here be  stated   for   the
benefit of those not so well acquainted with the game, that a goal scored
I from   active play counts 2 points
I while one made on a free shot only
\ counts one point.

I on Tuesday last, to preach a retreat

Gko. R. ManIsBy,
By reference to the detailed estimate of the expenditure needed to
put tbe Pelta's roads in proper
��rder, you will see at a glance that
it is absolutely necessary that something should be done, and that
right away.
The Trunk roads require $48,000
alone; Ward I��� $11,450; Ward IL,
$20,000; Ward III., $25,400; Ward
JV.. $10,850; Ward V., $29,800;
making a grand total of $145,500.
These figures have not been
picked up at random, they are the
result of a close scrutiny of the
road work done in each ward ancl
which has stood the test. Then,
again, they represent the fact that
jt will be many years ere the work
can be efficiently accomplished witb
the present revenue Providing no
more than $7,000 is annually expended on repairs, as at present,
for the next twenty years, ancl
no repairing is done to the present'
fairly good pieces of road, there will
be some of our present roads still
untouched. What condition will
t_,ey be in then? to say nothing of
Jhe unrepaired roads.
Many of those who are living on
rood roads to-day will have ceased
to be ere then and those reigning
jn tfysir ^pad will be cursing their
^sbes for their obstinacy in opposing tbe loan.
If the Joan is raised and the roads
are ptit in proper shape, the $7,000
an-jally thrown away in patchwork would repay the loan in 50
years, while there wpuld still be
$8,000 of the present revenue rer
rnaining for general repairs during
the time the new work is in pro-
Which is the wisest plan to adopt?
That the bonnet covered with
birds does not sing, but often makes
a man whistle when the bill comes
Tbat a woman can sharpen a lead
penciljust about as artistically as a
man can sew up a hole iu bis socks?
That there is nothing more
aggravating to a woman with a
secret than to meet people who
have no curiosity?
That it is a suggestive sort of a fact
that the author of "Sweet Home"
was never married and never wanted to be?
That   you   must   not   let   your
troubles blind you to the fact that
your neighbor's sympathy is two
thirds curiosity?
That as soon as a a girl commences telling a young man how
much she thinks of him he should
be on the lookout?
That a girl's education is not
complete unless she can read a man
like an open book?
That there is absolutely nothing
in the theory that the uukissed
kisses are sweetest���as almost any
spinster will tell you?

W. H. Taylor, Se;.
A young lady working in a
stocking factory, fearing that her
chances for matrimony were small,
wrote the following and slipped it
into the toe of a gentleman's sock:
"A young lady, good looking and
of some means, would like to correspond with the wearer of this sock,
if he is single, with a view to matrimony." A young man bought thej
sock and said: "There's my chance."
He wrote to the young lady, offering himself as a suitable party, and
to his surprise got this reply: "I
have been married eight years,
and have a family of five children."
The man from whom he bought
the socks had never advertised,
and consequently they had lain on
the shelves for eight years.
To-morrow being the first Sunday in the month, Holy Communion will be administered in Ml
Saints, at the mid-day service. The
Vicar hopes to see a much increased
attendance at the Blessed Sacrament all through Lent, at both the
early morning and late celebrations.
The ostrich plumes aie to be seen
this spring more extensively than is
usual at this season. One milliner
gives the reason for this,the fact that
leghorns are so in vogue, and that
whenever leghorns are used, ostrich
feathers will be in evidence, the leghorn being a rather bare straw,
needs the drooping grace of the
plumes to relieve it..

at least, to aid our more unfortunate
brothers and sisters. I aro willing

On Thursday, the 22nd ult.,
Wallace Barrington, the fugitive
diamond robber, passed through
here on bis way to the Royal City.
While on board the Ritfeet, the
actions of the fugitive aroused the
suspicions of Captain Hunter who,
on reaching Ladner, communicated
with Jos. Jordan, and he, in turn,
telephoned Chief Mcintosh, at
Westminster, to meet the Rithet at
the wharf. The Chief met the roan
and, after a short interrogation, let
I hiu continue his wanderings, with
the result that he was captured,
later, in Blaine. $t Vancouver, on
Tuesday, Barrington received five
years in the penitentiary, while his
partner, Hazard, gpt four years.
