The regular weekly meeting of tbe
publio committee was held on Thurs
day afternoon, all the members being
present. The question of laying out a
half mile track was discussed, F. W.
Aylmer has kindly offered to do tbe
surveying gratuitously. The report
from the school trustees showed the
number of children attending school
to be 43, and the number under age to
be 47. When these facts are laid
before the Minister of Education, thero
should be no difficulty in obtaining a
grant for a new school house. Supt.
Whyte of the C.P.R- is expected here
shortly, when he will be interviewed
about the filling of the holes south of
the depot.

The first volume of the B.C. Budget
has just come to hand. In making
their bow to the public The Budget
says: This the initial number falls
sadly short in point of general
appearance and make-up of the standard of excellence to which we intend
to bring it up. It then goes on to
enumerate the many, difficulties atten
dant on a first issue. Its columns are
bright and "I-terescing and should

8 to 13.5 per cent. The middle finger
is worth from 10 to 1G per cent. The
third finger is valued at no more than
7 to 9 per cent. Tbe little finger is
worth 9 to 12 per cent. The difference
in the percentages is occasioned by the
difference with the trade, the first
finger being, for instance, more valuable to a writer than to a digger.
To Contest Alberni.
At a public meeting held at Alberni
on March 20th, George A. Huff, merchant, was nominated as a Government
supporter to contest tbe riding of Cow-
ichan-Alberni for tbe vacant seat in
the Provincial Legislature caused by
Hon. Mr. Davie's retirement. At another meeting in Alberni ou the same-
day, T. A. Woods, already in the field
as the choice of Cowichan, addressed
the electors, asking their enth>rsatioor
and was followed by Messrs. F. McQuillan, Mr. Huff, aud H. Bainbridge,
wbo ur��ed tbe desirability of choosing
a resident of Alberni aud offered themselves for nomination. A ballot wan-
then taken, without anyone receiving.
a majority, and Woods and Bainbridge
being lowest, their names were drop-
lied. Another ballot resulted in a tie-
between Huff and McQuillan, and aa
Chairman Kirkpatrick refused to cast
the deciding vote a third ballot was
taken, when Huff got 22 votes and Mc-
21��� one man not voting. The choice
was then made unanimous. It looks,,
therefore, as if Messrs. Wood aud Huff
will havo a coneest.

The year 1900 will not be a leap yeai
Every year is a leap year that is divis-
ble by fcur, excepting those ending in
two cyphers, wbicb must be divisible
by 400; thus 1(100 and 2000 are leap
years, but 1800 and 1900 are not.
Julius Ctesar reformed tbe calendar by
making three years of 865 days each
follow one year of 886 days, or, in
short, every fourth year was made a
leap year. This calculation gives an
error el about eleven minute*' too
much each year, which has aggregated
now nearly twelve days. Iu order to
obviate this error Pope Gregory, iu
1582, declared October 6th to be Octo
ber 15th, and made the rule that there'
after century years not multiples of
400 shonld not be leap years. The
Gregorian calendar has been adopted
in all civilized countries save Russia.
This system of intercalculation reconciles with much accuracy the civil and
solar years. The latter contains 365
days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, 49.62
seconds. By omitting three leap years
every 400 years it gives the civil year
an average duration of 365 days, 5
hours, 49 minutes, 12 seconds, whicli
exceeds the true solar year by -*-.;��<-*

According to a scale drawn up for
the Miners' Union and Miners'Acci'

the loss of both hands is valued at
100 per cent, or the whole ability to
earn a living. Losing the right hand
depreciates the value of an individual
as a worker 70 to 80 por cent, while
the loss of the left hand represent*
from 60 to 70 per cent of the earnings
of both hands.   The thumb is reckoned
London, March 24.-The Central
News correspondent inTokio says that
ah attempt was made to assissinate Li
Hung Chang in a street of Simoooaski
this afternoon. Li was returning from,
the peace conference, in whioh he conducts negotiations on behalf of the*
Chinese mission, and was accompanied
by several of his suits. When he wa*
a short distance from his apartments,
a young Japanese ran up to bim snd
fired a pistol ir his face. Tbe young
man was seized and disarmed at one*
by the police. At the station house
be gave bis name as Koyama, and hi*
age as 21. According to the report re��
ceived in Tokio, Li's wound is not dangerous.
London, March 2G.-The Tokio correspondent of the Central News telegraphs that Li Hung Chang's condition is progressing favorably. Th*
assassin's bullet penetrated the bona
one-third of an inch, but the wound,
the surgeons say is not serious.
The parleying in regard to an armistice continues. Japan demauds Shan-
hai Kwan and other unoccupied point*
and these demands have been yielded.
Tbe Japanese forces succeeded in taking the Pescadoi-e Islands on March
24th. The troops were landed and
attaoked the fort in the rear, where
they were undefended, and carried
them by assault.

OU  Negli eterl   Bar*   on   th*  Fraser
"'" '     Prove rro_t.it.le.
Writing, to a friend in Vancouver,
Wn. Tdagiiij, .J. P.' of Yule, conveys
the following news: Doubtless a few
lines' touching the 'subject of gold oh
the bars' in mid-river cf the Fraser,
just above the town of Yale, will interest yoii.'- I can ' assure vou lhe
. scene is a busy one. There nre white
men, Chinamen and Indians thickly
siuddeil over the bar, numbering 47
. men, busily engaged rocking for gold,
'reminding one of earlier days, when
the developments along the course of
the Fraser were almost a contiiihou*
feature'of mining, und "buckskin
''purses'' and "yeast powder caii" wore
the repository of the miners' gold won
frbit the'rich placji-s of the Fraser.
Everything seems to point to the fact
that the prospects on the neglected
bars contain -a- valuable channel of
auriferous pay gravel. Several companies are -making tt per day to tbe
.-hand, while others are. doing $5 and
1*4'per day to the man. The general
result in gold by all hands is good and
indeed, very satisfactory. In my
.opinion there are many more bars of
; this character along the course of the
Fraser' worthy the attention of the
prospector's pick.to prove its commercial value. The reason, perhaps, this
bur has been left ao long without
working was owing to ita surface
appearance in not having the favorable
" uigger-head boulder wash " scattered
over ita surface, which the old time
prospector considered an inevitable
characteristic for success in finding
pay underneath them. There is no
doubt this find will ultimately'lead to
ithe development of the numerous other
bar* whioh can be worked most advantageously at low water mark. This,
is convincing proof thst there is gold
yet to be won from the bars of the
Fraser if energy and attention ar*
rightly applied.

Gentlemen : -
In response to the widely expressed
desire of representative men iii various
parts of vonr District I have decided
to come torwarti as a candidate at the
forthcoming elections, iu opposition to
the present government.
As this is such an enormous district
I am, of course, personally unknown
to a large number of you ; but I may
state that I have large interests at and
around Dicks and Kamloops, and am
very desirous, fur your wellare and
mine, to see this Province progress
more than it has done the last few
I am opposed to the policy of protection which has been pursued for the
last sixteen years, as being unfitted to
the requirements of the country and
benefitting the few at the expense of
the many.
.. -  -   . ...
. I join in the condemnation of the
corrupt manner in whicli the administration of the affairs of this country
has been carried on during the time
thnt the present party has been in
I consider: ���
1. That a oustoms tariff, if imposed
at all, should only be for the purpose
of raising a revenue, not for the purpose of i rotection:
2. That freer trade relations with
Great Britain and the United States
would immediately bunt-fit this country :.
3. That under existing circumstances and the peculiar nature of tbe
country . mining machinery should be
allowed to come in free of duty:
4. That the natural resources of
the country should be tbe first to be
. 5. That in order to accomplish this
end the country should be opened up,
the rivers made navigable, and increased facilities- for column uicuiiuu and
trauaportation afforded:
6. That the mail and otht-r contracts let by the government should be
put up to public tender:' ���    .
7. That the strictest' economy
should be observed iu the administration of the public service, anil all unnecessary expenditure should be stopped:
8. That all complaints in regard to
the disposal of government lands and
Issuing -of titles should be inquired
into aud any grievances redressed, and
tbe surveys in the railway bell completed as quickly as possible.
As this district .comprises se large
an extent of country it will be impossible for me to visit every polling division and become acquainted with the
electors, but I shall make a point of
visiting as many as possible and holding meetings for the purpose of placing
my views on public mutters before
you, snd learning from you tho local
requirements of each district.
I have no objects of my own to serve
by asking you to support me, but I
have time that I can itive to promote
the interests of this District, the Province, and tbe Dominion, and I shall
devote it to that purpose.
For these reasons I ask yonr support at the approaching Dominion
Elections, and trust you will see fit to
give it to me.
Yours faithfully,

years ago a passenger train on tbe Mon'on
route was wrecked near the home of John
Elliott, north of thia city. The train rolled

damages from the railroad because, be
alleges, tbe health of bb family has been

caused by the sounds of th* groans from
tb* Injured that vibrate through his house
every night, and when tbey go outdoors at
night the "spirits" of those killed In this
wreck can be seen walking up nnd down

Tho ao-calied vanilla bean b not a bean
at all, says -anion and Forest, but the
limit of a climbing orchid, \ anllln planl-
folin thn capsule or pod-of which Is about
throe-.'! jlits of an inch in dinmetor and
from 1 < to tea inches long aud has certain i-H-mbbnce to the so-called Cnlalpa
beiin. Thu plant in IU. native home in
Mexico and tropical America climbs
over trees and shrulis by menus of slender
rootlets sent out from the joints of tho
litem. It b not a true', epiphyte, howover,
but always maintains itt connection with
the soil. In ita wild state it climbs to a
height of twenty foet but in cultivation
it b kept within bounds so that the un-
rlpo potls are not Injured when the others
arc gathered. A late number of popular
Solonco Nows contains an Interesting
account of tbo mothod of growing the
vanilla in whioh It b stated that in Mexico the plant b propogated by cut In-** and
then trained over somo rourrh-harkod
trellis work In partial shade Whon the
plants wore first introduced Into tho West
and East Indies they grew vigorously and
produced an nbundnnco of flowers but no
pods. It waa discovered thnt the particular moth which fertilised tho flowen In
-baton was absent from Its now homo
and artificial polenallon was resorted to
after which tho Honors produced abundantly. With a long splint of bamboo tho
Up of the flowor b lifted away aud tho
pollen b transferred from the pockets and
applied to tho stigma. Tbo work b so
easily done thnt ono person can forttlbo
1,000 flower* In a morning.- The pods require a month to reaoh full sbe and six
mouths mora to ripen.
The process of curing b long and complicated and tho aroma of vanilla b
mid to bo produced only by fermentation.
In the Island of Reunion In tho Indbn
Ocean where tho plant b grown extensively the pods are pbood in a basket and
plunged fnr half a minute in hot water
then placed on a mat to drain and exposed
between woolen blankets to, the sua for
six a* eight days and kept in dosed
boxes daring tho night to promote a slight
fermentation. When the pods aro perfectly cured thoy am a dark chocolate
color pnlahtb and free- from moisture.
When finally prepared the rob are tied
up In bundles packed In air-tight boxes
and whon in priino condition they am
covered with a frosting of needle-llko
crystals cf vanillic add which whon
pressed hetwaen the flngere gives off the
ehat*oterbtio odor. Tho supply sent to

quality of thta b much Inferior. The

An Inspect Ion of the cliff between Dover
and Ht. Mnr-mmt's jesterdny shows that
an rnormnus slip has token place���the
hirgost pub'Idenoo of coast cliff, in met,
whioh has occurred fnr many yean. Whon
it happened, on Sunday, a dull roar was
heard in tho distance, followed by a cloud
of dust from the debris, which blew across
Dover Bay almost like a sea fog. Thorn
is overy appearance that wbon tbo frost
breaks further slips will occur, as then
am several place* along the cliff whon
thero am great crocks on tho top, as well
as in the face of the cliff. One is right
in faint, qf.. the < convict prison, which, In
course of time, as well as tbe South Foreland Lighthouses and the Cornhill Coast-
guard Station, must stand in great danger nf slipping Into tho sea, unless some
nieosums aro taken fnr the protection of
tho foreshore, - So serious has beon the
'���fleet in recent yean of the encroachment
nf tbo sea that the whole line of cliff between Dover and St. Margaret's is upcoming extensively honeycombod at the base.
