wuys usually secured results (hut could
not be considered unsulisfaclury frum
thoir puiut uf view. As fur Ihc situa
tiuu hetwecu Ihc district uml Hie I'm i
tc Great Eastern, there was uo desire
upuu Ihc purt uf the council tu pluee
unneccssury ohsluclcs in Ihe way. The
fuct that the railway was bound tu
come was fully recognized, but the
members uf thc council naturally deilred tu accomplish all that they euuld iu
the interests uf thf prupcrly uwncrs
and the public, as Ihey uudersluud those
interests, lie was inclined tu thiuk that
u .'..ininoi uf thu ipie.ium might be

scntiug to move their right uf way in
laud une ur twu hundred feet generally

relieve the situatiuu iu ccrluiu specific
Instances such as l.'aulfield's which wus
affected to thu great disadvantage of
ine owner by the prcseut railway location.
Councillor GinUburger, in au interview emphasized the fact tbat it would
bu wull for properly owners to accept
thc logic of thc situation. Thc railway
wus bound to como and its coming
imiilil affect to a considerable degree
tbo wutnrfruut holdings. Under sucb con
iliiiunn it remained uuly tu endeavor to
lueatc the line where it would bu most
beneficial mutually tu citizens and tu
Hie company. Ilu was of opiniou that
ihe best sulutiuu iiiiuld Iw fur the rail
ways to run practicully parallel with tbe
."Inni' line ut a uniform distance of
about 291) feet frum high water mark.
This would protect all riparian rights
aud would give opportunity fur spur
connections un buth sides uf the truck.
Thc uflicials of the Pacific Great
Eastern have taken nu further action
as yet relative tu the situatiuu. Thc
ugrcement roiichcd was to the offset
thut the district cuuucil would bava
their engineer run a line showing a
route which would be acceptable tu the
ouiiiil uml lhat the plan would be submitted tu the cunipuny. This line is uuw
beiug ruu aud a further conference
will  be held  at  Victoria   within   ten
lays when it is hoped that a llnul adjustment will be made.

The Confederate flag continued |o

Unionists ami the tlonfodorato iuloon
t'tinl inued to onjoy an enormoiiH pn-
Iiiiiiiiiii'. nhnpurd wined fat and sleek
ami grew more defiant' than before.
The Union sentiment was outraged by
the success of the secession movement,
and when the news of Btoneweli Jack
son's untimely death came and tbo
(Southerners went about the streets with
crape on their arms aud the flag over
lhe saloon drooped sadly at half mast,
the Northerners held a u,u|ict little
meeting and decided that something
energetic shuuld be dune to get rid of
the rebel standard.
A frequent visitor to Victoria was
one Tom titration, a unlive of ouo if
the Kastertt Htates and an outspoken
Unionist. His homo wus at l'ort An
gcles. titration was the possessor nf
a jut-black glossy heard of great length,
of which he waa juatly proud, and
which he passed much of hia leisure
lime iu atrnking ami something with
his hands.   Tom was a daredevil, ami
tis, who owned and occupied a smu

Birdcage Walk ami Belleville street.
This cottage was roniuvcd somo years

afterward, llu block uu which Roation

were ulnm-i upun mc when I threw
luck my Inverness cape and made u
motion us if lo draw a weapon. I was
unarmed. I bad passed all Ihruugli
the pcnlous vigilance committee limes
at Hun Francisco- when decent men
were robbed and shot duwu like dogs,
uml when culprits were hanged in the
streets by mobs ami never carried
knife or pistol. When I slurted for
the IT,I,i Biver mines In 18.08 I
bought a Toll's five shouting revolver,
fur which I paid SIS. At Yale it proved

disgust, so when I was "approached"

referred lo I possessed neither watch
nor pistol. However, althoogh seared
and nervous, I was resourceful, and as
I swung my arm round 1 shuuted:
"Htup, or I'll flrcl" The men foil
back intn the darkness and I sprang
Inward the bridge un a kijcn jump. I
don't i.elicve that the men ' ,11...-..-1

bounded up lbe steps of the littlo cot

soon within the four corners of my
bachelor apartment—breathless, perspiring and trembling with fear and
excitement, liut safe. A strange feeing took control of me as 1 thought over
the incident. I became impressed with
the belief that one of the forma I had
seen approaching ine out of the dark
inns was that of Wolfo or Fiiilayson.
I could not have sworn to his identity,
but some hypnotic orlelepathic' influence told rpe that ono of the figures was
his. I i mild prove nothing, but J nevor
spoke to bim afterwards, although I
met biro on several occasions. The nest
day a brief paragraph in the paper
mentioned the attempted hold-up and
the incident aoon faded from my mind.
Tbe old Btar and darter waa torn

Southern residents. To him tho flag

he sometimes made threats as to what

Kearly one aflernuuii live or six
yuung men, strangers, entered lhe dun
federate. They wero professedly Houtli
urners and boisterously cheered for Jell'
Davis and thu Southern cause. All
were possessed of much cash and (real
cd Ihc laiidliird and all in the huuse
lu liberal pulatiuns uf champagne at tu

gress at one of tbo tables, aud the
strangers slaked heavily ami lual wtih

The treating continued and when the

Hbapard was unmistakably intoxicated.
Whenever ho made a movement tu gu

and  remembering his flag, walked  to

emblem of secession  had disappeared,
ami with il had gone lhe gay youug

money and wine. The excitement among
the Houtherners was great and a heavy

forth a volume of ugly wordt. Htrattou laughed iu bis face. Hhapard con

. "Vou stoio my flag," he foamed.
"Well, what of itt" asked Hlratton,
as he rote to his foot. *
"That's what of it," .creamed Shap-

a blow full in the face.
Hlriillnn retorted witb a blow and
then tbe two men clinched. Both wore

as tbey struggled and pounded aod tore
each otber wltb their hands and teeth

A near relative to gaslight paper is

in tbe fact that broinldle priuting

(iflcial light is fata|. Oareful handling

Iu priuting, thp action ia much
quicker than gaslight papor. Thu frame

ruugh paper, for prints wliiuli require
detail usu thu finer surfaces ur glossy.
A great deal ilupends upun Individual
taato, hut the more artistic effects ure
produced by tbe use of ruugh paper.
In printing bromide it must be un

shuuld bu abuut eighteen inches dis

thu density of the negative the exposure
shuuld be given. This can only bu cs

bu kept for future priuting. This will

The development of bromide prints ii

Development of Lumber
The McNnir Timber ami Lumber Compauy have inaugurated a radical change
iu their method of working their timber limits at Wost Vancouvor. Formerly
they brought the logs down from the

been installed ut the limits aud tbe
sawn lumber is brought down ami shipped tu market. This change has necessitated some improvements to tlie terminal arrangements of their threo mile

addition of two new flat cars for the

You, no doubt, have been congratulating yourselves upon a narrow escape
frpm Americanization in a recent vote
on reciprocity. Tbu dangers of the
Anierieiini.Titiiiu of Canada do not Iiu
so much in a freer trade betwoon north

but in ownership, tor you may rest
assured that the peoplo who own a
