commenced     by    describing    the

A coroner's inquest was held on
the 4th inst., for the purpose of inquiring into the cause of deaih of a
Chinaman, named Hai-ttt, who was
found dead, ou Wednesduy, in a
shack on Crescent Island.
The evidence-went to prove that
the man's death was due to exposure and starvation which,_ together with some lung complications, caused death. It was proven
that he had been unable to procure
v/ork for some months and had
i been practically turned adrift by
���his countrymen to starve.
Dr. King, the coroner, in summing up the evidence, said that,
"It was a disgrace to humanity that
such a thing should happeu in a
prosperous country like the Delta."
The coroner was assisted by a
���jury composed  as  follows:   J.   A.
jTaterson (foreman), H. J. Hutcher-
���son, W. H. Wilson,   G.  T. Baker,
Robt. May anl P. Clark.
Dr. Woodley performed the autopsy and gave evidence as to the
cause of death.

original remarks.
Col. Hughes, however, mede
some startling revelations particularly damaging to his own party
and proving beyond question tliat
(he-Liberal government found supporters for their j olicy even in Conservative ranks. His references to
what occurred'in caucus were listened to with attention by every
member of the House, because
1 these matters are -kept secret as a
1 matter of honor, and it is a very
unusual thing for a member to betray what occurs in caucus.
The fight in the Conservative
family bad- become so fierce that to
get even with each other ali considerations- of party ' loyalty were forgotten'in the attempt to ipjure the
reputation of each other.
Col. Hughes said that Si. Charles
Tupper was in favor of building an
j-all-Canadian'line to the Yukon *iid
that he  induced -Hon. Cliflbrd'Sif-
ton to adopt the idea.    He went on
(to say   lhat   Mr   Foster opposed it,
which proves incidentally  that Mr.
Foster was a a traitor to  his chief,
even after the memorable occasiou
cf'1-896, when he was  described by
his   leader   as   one   of  a   nest of
! traitors.    The  Colonel  blandly in-
l-formed the House that Sir Charles
. TuppcT  abandoned   the   idea  and
j opposed his own  project simply to
j'hold  the  party  together, but that
he really favored the project.
This is interesting in face of the
fact that upon every occasion when
this' __?fttier bas-'come up the Conservatives have'.tried to create the
impression tbat 'they were always
opposed to the building of this road.
Col.-Hughes calmly stated that be
was-always in favor ot it and that
the idea originated actually with
Sir Charles Tupper. This will be
jnews to many  people in  Canada

The Market
New WesUoinstet, 'J.:ne 6.���
The attendance at the weekly market, yesterday, was all that could
be expected at a busy sett-soc.
The auction mart v.-k a very
busy place and quite a number of
head of live stock were disposed of
and very fair prices were received.
In meats there -was-a big demand
for many favorite joints. Fork was
particularly short xnd all sold
readily. -Beef had a fair supply,
and met with good sale-!. Tbe
wholesale price, however, declined
from the last market. Of veal there
was a fair supply ��� and all was disposed of readily. Mutton and lamb
were short, aud all sold readily.
The demand for potatoes is declining and prices fell trom previous markets. From 'this it mult
not be inferred that trade in this
stock vegetable is bad, but growers
are selling seed and other varieties
direct ana those reaching the market are apt'to hang fire. -Potatoes,
a settlers earliest crop, are naturally plentiful, and ' yet prices have
kept at JSiR firm for-some time past,
but weakened yesterday.
Live poultry is holding firm, bat
ducks fell tu price, perhaps due to
the large numbers Teaching the
market. The price ruled from 50c
to a'-dollar-a dozen'lower than last
week. ChickensStfllchange hands
at 20c a pound. The supply was
fair considering the season. Broilers
were largely offered aud sold for
figures iu comparison to size.
There was a good supply of eggs,
which were bargained for at from
25c to 27c per dozen wholesale.
Butter retailed -at prices which ha ve
ruled recently.
Greer vegetables ��� cstae���-in*-fairly
well but little or no fruit was offered.
The following are the prices that
ruled during tlie day:
Beef, hindquarters, 8Hc to o}4c
per lb; forequarters, 6j��c to 7^e.
Mutton, 13c per lb.

What about the  26th ot June,
Excelsior Club ?
Summer has come in earnest now
And the first real growing weather
has made quite a difference in the
appearance of everything.
It is hoped the Band Boys will
take up the matter of running an
excursion to the Norris & Rowe
circus at New Westminster on the
20th. Such an event should prove
very popular.
Last evening beiug pleasant, the
Hand Boys played in the band
stand. They are playing very
nicely aud as they have several engagements in the near future, are
putting in fome heavy practice.
We would suggest that the Council instal a telephone at the residence ot the Road Foreman, which
would save considerable of the lest
time and trouble now experienced
in getting in touch with him by
Councillors and others.
Tbe Baud Boys are getting ready
to give a series ot sacred concerts
during the camping season, both at
Ladner and Boundary Bay, on
Sunday afternoons, which we think
vfould be much appreciated, especially by the visitors at the Bay.
We are glad to see that the prohibition wave is still sweeping on
A short time ago Manitoba passed
a stringent liquor law providing for
local option wherever desired. Now
Saskatchewan is following suit as
will ba seen from the following extract:
Regina, Sask., June 4.���The
government amendments to the
present licensing system brought
down in the legislature last night,
provide for local option on a
straight majority vote and also to
provide for drastic changes in the
present liquor law. Local option
by-laws must be submitted by 25
per cent, of the voters, and a
straight 50 per cent, vote will close
the traffic as far as that district is
concerned. The effect of the provision is somewhat minimized by
the fact that the voters' list to be
used is not the municipal voters'
list, but the list for the election of
legislative assembly members. Nevertheless the change is a sweeping
reform ar.d local option will doubtless carry in many cities and towns
ot the west.
Provision is made that after a
local option by-law is carried it cannot be repealed for two years and
then only on a similar vote. Two
years must elapse between any two
elections for this purpose.
Restriction to the present licensing system includes a reduction of
hours of sale by one-hour-and-a-
half. The present system is to
close at 11:30 p.m., and the proposal of the government is to have
closed tars after 10 p.m.
The friends of temperance also
note with pleasure that the prohibition wave has swept over Oregon. A recent despatch says that
nineteen counties have voted dry
and in four more the vote was in
doubt. This is in -addition to
Benton, which is now dry, and
three counties which went partially

Takes His Rest
London June 2���Gensral the Rt.
Hon. Sir Redvers Henry Buller.
V.C., G.C.B., G.C.M.G., K.C.M.
G., who had beeu ill for some
weeks past, is dead. He was born
in 1839.
General Buller entered the army
in 1858, and in 1891 had risen to
the rank of Lieutenant-General.
He saw active service in many
parts of the world. He served in
China in i860, in the Ashanti war
in 1874, in the Kaffir war and in
the Zulu war in 1878-79. He was
in South Africa in 1881 and in
Egypt iu 1882, and was present at
the battle ot Tel-el-Kebir. He also
fought in the Soudan in 1884, and
was Under-Secretary for Ireland
1886-7. He became well known
during the Boer war as the man
who relieved Ladysmith. He went
out to Africa in 1889,' first as General Commanding the Forces in
South Africa, and afterwards as
General Officer Commanding in
Natal. He conducted the over-
march for the relief of Ladysmith,
which was successfully accomplished alter an investment ot 118 days,
and subsequently conducted the
operations that resulted in the expulsion of the Boer army from
In April General Buller contracted a chill in London, and this indisposition was followed by a severe
attack ol jaundice and other complications. Early in May a hopeful view of his recovery was entertained by his physicians, and the
turn for the worse was unexpected.
Gentral Buller married Lady
Aubrey J ane Charlotte, daughter of
the fourth Marquis Townshend.
Winnipeg, June 2���The pioneers
of the Red River to-day heard with
regret of the death of General
Buller. It was in the summer of
1870 that General Buller, then a
lieutenant of the 60th Rifles, was
first seen in Winnipeg, which was
then Fort Garry, in connection
with the Red River expedition. He
is well remembered as a smart
young British officer by the piou-
eers of Winnipeg who saw service
in that expedition. Mr. Hugh
John Macdonald was a lieutenant
in the Canadian contingent, and
Major Svvinford was a sergeant in
the same corps, and each recalls the
Buller of that day, wheu history
was warm in the making round old
Fort Garry. Colonel Irvine, Warden of Stoney Mountain, is another
Winnipeg pioneer who recalls that
early trip of Lieutenant Buller to
Fort Garry.
