In return we have always endeavored to maintain the best service)

way clear to maintain the service
any longer, E shall always retain.

Character Hnllillna.
Character is the wool of honor from
Which a coat of mail can lie woven that
the swiftest arrow of shame or |lte
keenest knife of disrepute caunnj
pierce. Every thought that enters cm
mind, every act we do and every word
we utter adds a link to the golden
chain of character. The strength of a
steam engine can be estimated to within an ounce of Its limit, but it ls impossible to estimate tbe force of a noble character. Tbe hardest hearts ure
softened and the most repulsive dispositions become fasciuuting. Our failures and onr successes help to form a
reputation that may be destroyed by
an external force, but the destruction
of a character can only be el'foctcil by
some iut-M'iinl force���Our Boys' Magazine.

"Should oue be asked at random to

work���be would bs likely to name ths
Jderrlinae," said M. S. Edgar of Tort-
land, Me. "He would bare ln mind
tbe great manufacturing city of Lowell, and tbe answer would be a natural
one. lt ls surprising, therefore, to be
told by tbe United States geological
survey that tbe most powerful river in
New England is tbe Androscoggin.
Yet tbe surprise abates wben tbe facts
are recounted. Tbere aro nine or ten
developed water pow.era along tbe river, aud it appears tbat thoy furnish total power equal to 73,000 horses. The
falls nt Brunswick yield 7,700 horsepower; at Lisbon Falls, 1,025; at Lewis-

at Otis Falls, 8,000; at Jay's, 3,700; at
Peterson's Kips, 0,000. .U Rumford
Falls there is a potential of 30,000
horsepower when the resources at tbat
place are fully developed, and that is
altogether tlie greatest water power in
New England."

Q\m MAJIi. SERVICE,
The-- Westminster News,, ot tho
ftti inst., endeavors to justify the
��ets of the Board of -fltade in in ter-
ftving with the down river service
-i-mail ami steamboat���and says
that ivo less tbwi five letters and
Ijititi&us had been received asking
the Board's assistance because "the
rpaiLservice ati Ladiier and along
the river was. demoralized on account of the C. P. R. Co. refusing
tp carry the mail or renew tbe contract wider any consideration ia>
that it proposed to withdraw the
Transfer fronti tha- down-riv.et serr
���vvee."'
Nov-i,.we would like to see those-
petitions-and letters.. The. only petitions .we know ol asi emanating
from Ladiier wer��:; ist, Askitig tha
department to grant a double mail'
service with 'Uancouyer; 2-nd (after
this, service had been cancelled
through the interference of West*-
tttinster),  asHJng that the depar.--
14ICIU inttnc vui lun . iji 1 nicjjc, 1 ua
jietijions related to by the News
Hiust have come fiotn, some, point;
outside ot Ladner..
Again;- "Upon the earnest solicitation of tbe people of ladner and
tycinitv the Board of Trade took
the matter up with.Captain.Troupe,.
hadiinterviews with himi but failed,
to get any promise of continued'
service."' Bor the Ter.y simple
reason thftt the mail contract having- about expired, nothing could
fye done until tenders were- called
for,,whioh has not beeni done even
yet-, the carrying of the mails hav-'
ifigbeen awarded the J. C.Bruce
Without calling for, tenders.,
W,e haye heard a rumor to the
effect thqd the G; P. R. Co(���in communication with the Postoffice Department at Ottawa, offered to
oarrv the-mails from Westminster
to,Westham Island ton- the sum,of
|5',per day, but;,when-, the Ottawa
authorities were inc-ined to aocept
t.his,offen it waa-disco\.erei tbat the
-jontract had alreft.ly been, given to
t|ic. J. C. Bruce.
As to the "-hautkiess-of the offi-
oer^ottbe Tr.msfer" mentioned in
the-News,. we 1 imnot agree on, this
floipt as, when vge.-ha\te occasion.to,
visit the Royal-City we always.use
the- Transfer, aad we ha#e everj
fptrpd the officers y.jry courteous to|
t-icir passengers. i
"Iu the meantime it is not to .__��>;
orcilit of Ladner that its press-
should smite the community that,has
jfiithe past dug deeply to inake the
transportation for Uie people cf, the!
lower river a6 reasonable, cor.tinu,-!
���us and comfortable as possible." j
tye-would ask  the News in what'
way have the people of  Westniic-I
ster dug  dowu. tJ   help   out   tlel
transportation   ior   the   people   ofj
this pa^t ot, the river,?   Is it  by I
promising to put on, a boat  "if tho!
C. P. R. Co.  would  withdraw" iu
order lhat they might receive an
exorbitant rental for an idle boat?
Whatever Westminster has done ior
Delta   has   be��n. of a   mercenary
nature only..
As to being personally "interested in the C. P. R. Co.," we regret
very much to say that we do pot.
hold C.P.R. stock, neither do we
possess the privilege of free transportation- even, baring to pay our
little six-bits, the same as anyone
else.
One of our strongest objections;
to the juggling by the Westminster,
Board of Trade wkh qui. affairs
here is the- rotten mail service we
have at present. Let ua illustrate
for their benefit. Prior to Tuly
20th, letters mailed hero-at 8 a.m.
were delivered iu Vancouver* at
,10:30 a.m.. and Westminster at 11
p.m-. same day.. Now, letters mail}-
ed at 8 a.m. are not delivered in.
Vancouver until 5:30 p.m. and at
Westminstep still later. Iu other
words, letters mailed17 hours earlier
under- the present mail sesvice are-
delivered in, Vancouver and Westminster 7 hours later than formerly.
Surely under such conditions we
have a. good1 kick to register against
outsiders meddling with our own
affairs.

Character Bnllilliifr.
Character is the wool of honor from
whicli a coat of mail can be woven thut
the swiftest arrow of shame or tin-
keenest knife of disrepute cannot
pierce. Every thought tlmt enters cur
mind, every act wo do ami every word
we utter adds a link to the golden
chain of character. Tbe strength of n
steam engine can be estimated to within au ounce of its limit, but it is impossible to estimate tbe force of a noble character. The hardest hearts are
softened and thc most repulsive dispositions become fascinating. Our failures uud our successes help to form n
reputation that may be destroyed by
an external force, but the destruction
of a character can only be effected by
some iuteriinl force���Our Boys' Magazine.

A Powerfal River.
"Should oue be asked at random to
name the most powerful river in New
England���that ls, the river yielding th��
most water power aud doing tbe most
werk���be would be likely to name tbe
Merrimac," said M. S. Edgar of Portland, Ue. "He would have in mind
the great manufacturing city of Lowell, and the answer would be a natural
oue. It ls surprising, therefore, to be
told by the United Stntes geologicul
survey that the most powerful river in
New England is the Androscoggin.
Yet the surprise abates wheu the facts
are recounted. There nre nine or ten
developed water powers along the river, aud it appears that they furnish total pewer equal to 73,000 horses. The
falls at Brunswick yield 7,700 horsepower; at Lisbon Falls, 1,025; at Lewis-
ton, 12,000; at Livermore Falls, 3,000;
at Otis Falls, 8,000; at Jay's, 3,700; at
Peterson's Kips, 0,000. At Rumford
Falls there is a potential of 30,000
horsepower when the resources at that
place are fully developed, and that is
altogether the greatest wnter power in
New England."
