was all    tho streot    work that had
beon dono during tho week.
Tho Mayor reported .thut ho had
visitod Victoria during the week and
in uccordanco with tho instructions
of tho Council, had interviewed an
engineer with regard to tho sonor
question. Mr. Muhono was tho name
of tho engineer and ho had boen employed by. their predecessors in olllce
somo yours ago. At that timo tho
Council had.boon in rather straitened financial c'ircumstancos, und Mr.
Muhono had mado a particularly low
charge. Indoed ox-Mayor Coburn had
stated that tho city would nover
again hnvo such a chance given thom
However, Mr. Maho'no hud got somo
part of the work done whon tho
Council cancelled his engagement nnd
ho wns willing to do tho work now
nt the original figure of $400. Ho
had asked for a chart of tho harbor,
and ho had contracted to draw plans
nnd profiles. Indicate the best possible outlet, und glvo thom an estimate of thc cost of putting in a complete system of sewerage.
Mayor Nicholson statod that In his
opinion Mr. .Muhono was a vory
liable man,; He hud dono a lot of
that kind of work, both iu Victoria
and Vancouvor and in nearly every
city on tlio Coast.
Aid, Cnmpboll — His work will bo
Just to find tho sower levels nnd tho
outlot ?
Mayor Nicholson replied thut ho
would furnish n plan for n complete
system for tho city, with tho mnin
pipe line nnd all tho necessary junctions. Ho might sny thnt Mr. Ma-
hono hnd boon figuring out a sowor
sunk to a depth of 18 foot. Ho,
(Muyor Nicholson) had Informed him
that that would not bo necessary in
Lndysmith. All thnt they required
was that tho pipes should bo deep
enough so thnt a heavy wagon pass
ing ovor thom would not break them
Of courso. this would niuko a greut
difToronco in the cost of putting In a
sowor.
Mayor Nicholson concluded his remarks by stating that ho himself
considered thnt Slim spoilt for such
a purpose would bo money noil spout
They wore getting the sorvlces of an
oxport and experienced man. and wns
getting them cheap. If thoy ongag-
od him thoy -would thon be In a position to go to tho people and toll
them exactly how much it would
cost to put In a sowor.
Aid. Cnmpboll said ho did not
think thoy would bo doing anything
out of placo by sending for this
man. Even If thoy did not go In for
n comploto system, thc work would
always stand good until It was
wanted. He thought lt would be as
woll to havo tho man sont for.
Aid. McKinnell — This engineer
would moroly furnish thom with an
estimate of cost, tho sizo of tho
pipo, nnd tho nocossnry levels. If
thoy derided lo go ahead and put In
tt sowor thoy would require to on-
gago another ninn to do tho survey
work.
Muyor Nicholson — Yes; thnt Is
whut Is dono in ull ruses liko this.
Mr. Muhono and I wont ovor tho
probable cost, und wo figured it out
that the sowor could ho put In nt a
figure which would mako It cheaper
to tho people than tho present sanitary -work.
Ou the motion of Aid. McKinnell,
socondod by Aid. Matheson, It was
decidod to ongnge Mr. Mahono.
Aid. McKinnell said ho had learnt
from tho Road foreman's report
thnt n ditch hnd bcon cut on Kitchener Streot. Ho would liko to
draw tho attention of tho Council
to tho condition of Warren Street.
It was ovon worse than Kitchener
Streot and needed to bo attended to
at once.
Mayor Nicholson snld It would be
looked after during tho week.
Aid. Haworth referred to tho culvert which hnd boon put In on High
Stroot across Third Avenuo. Tho
boxes wore too short, and thoro wns
an awkward ditch for anyone going
to tho doctor's in tho dork.
Tho Road Foromnn was Instructed
to attend to It.
Flre Ohlof Smith having been
granted permission to address the
Council, said he had como up to

Aid. Brown ugroed with this. Tho
laborer wns worthy of his hire nnd
tho firemen should bo adequately remunerated. There would then lio no
ronsou for exempting them from taxation.
Aid. McKinnoll said the difficulty
was that If. thoy muile this refund to

Mr. Stewart pointed out thnt nil

A .hint of one of the numerous tragedies which occur almost daily
throughout the far west, practically
unnoticed and unehrouicled. wus given in chambers yesterday in a most
prosaic legul application before silr.
Justice Martin, suys tho Victoria
Culonist.
Mr. Taw, of tho legal firm of Mc-
i'hillips und iieisteruiuu. was asking
ior leave to swear to the death of
Mulcuim Shaw, of Alberni, who dis-
appcaroH about two yours, agv.. Thu
evidence of the death did not appeal*
quite conclusive enough to his lord-
snip aim he asked Mr. Tate a few
questions regarding the circumstances, lt seems thut Shaw was (13
years of age, iu poor health, and
pructicully dependent on the bounty
of a relative, Mrs. Kricksou, of Nanaimo, iu whuse iiuuse ho hud lived
lor twelve years. One day the old
muu went to the cannery near there
uiul burruwed u sail boat. It wus
not a rough duy, apparently, and
several poopio saw the old fellow
sail uwuy without a thought uf
what was to tallow. He was going
tu a pre-uuiptiun he had about fiv«
miles uwuy. Ilut su lar as iB known
ho never got there. The overturned

iound by Indiuns. Shaw hus not

There seems to be no question tbat

The need ol a sewer system in tho
city was never mora forcibly demonstrated that it was in the police
court lust Friday evening. A number of mon were brought before aiu-
gistratcs Aicholson and Matheson
each ui' them charged with emptying
dirty water un tho streels, or with'
depositing it uu their pluces in such
a jnunner that -it ran on to the
streets. As we remarked iu thiB
column some few days ago, this
sanitary question has been up before successive councils in every
shape and form. The cases un Friday night were the result of the present Council's decision to enforce the
Health By-Law. lhe case against
each of the defendants was adjourned in order to give time for the nui:
sauce to be stopped. 11 when the
courtreassembles, the .sanitary
spector still has a complaint
make, lines will be imposed, as
earnest of the civic authorities'
termination to enforce the provisions
for the health of tbe city.
With the intention of the Council
everybody with any regard for his
own well-being and the welfare of
the community at large will be in
perfect sympathy and accord. All
the same, the by-law under which
action la being taken is open to
considerable objeotiou, and the sew
ericas condition of the town makes
its enfircement a matter of vtne
greatest difficulty. One of the defendants asked if tho charge prefer,
red against him was true, milled
that it was. When .questioned further as to why he run dirty water
on to the streets he promptly answered that he saw no other place
(or it. Of course, hs was told he
would have to Und some other place,
but the tulling is the easiest part bf
it. , Indeed, wo don^t see that matters are mended vary much by digging a hole in the lot or somewhere
round about, and runuing the waste
house water into it. - Certainly such
a course will stop the accumulation
of eye-sores and inulodorious pools
on the streets; but it Is gueetlonabls
whether it will contribute a very
great deal to the preservation' of the
health of the town. To transfer a
bad smell from the front to the
bask door of a house is hardly going to render it immune from epidemics. The point Is that under
present conditions rt is the" liest'(-nat
•an ba done and everybody can reckon up for Mmaelf what a poor
last It ia. The Council are merely
doing their duty In enforcing the
by-latv, and lt Is not denied that
a lot of good can be done. The
work hitherto has been neglected,
tbe whole toMS needs a general sanitary clean-sjpTsnd now ie the time
to do It.
There wen, however, ono case
Friday night which dosorves particular mention. A tenant ol a houi
on Oatacre stroot was brought up on
a charge of running dirty water on
to tbe alleyway leading down to
tne Abboteford hotel. The man explained that be was only the tenant
of the'bouse he occupied. Tho water complained of was emptied on
lo the lot whence It found Its way

would make the tenant responsible
for the owner's offence cannot be enforced by solf-resjiectrng men. Surely

devise some means of bringing the
owner to terms. If the present bylaw is not sufficient then amend it

HOT  CHASE  AFTER  THE ANARCHISTS IN   STATES.
NEW YOHK, Mar. 30- Alexander
UerUuuu, the anarchist leader who
served a long term in prison fcr au
attempt to assassinate Henry c.
Frick, was taken into custody by
the polios here today. He will be
taken to the Bellevue hospital1 this
alternoou and confronted with Zee
lig Silverstein, the man who ls
in custody lor throwing the
bomb at the union square meeting
laat Saturday. The police say tbe
two man will be questioned closely
to learn whether tbey hove anything In common. The detention ol
Berlunah wad brought out by
the finding ot a cord bearing his
signature ln Silverstein'a rooms in
Brooklyn. The card certified to Silverstein'a membership in the Anarchist Federation.
Silverstein, who waa Irightlully injured by the exploding of the bomb
was reported to have made considerable .progress toward recovery to.
day. ' The physicians at Bellevue
eay he uiuy live. Bs is being closely guarded ln the prison ward at
the hospital.
Two detectives were said today to
have gone from New York to seme
unknown city In the northern part
of lbs . state to search tor membsis
of an anarchist group who fled from
the city after the bomb exploded on
Saturday. Tbs detectives are
polled also to be eearchlngi for the
huuuts of anarchists in Puteraon, N,
J., and is said that the police departments of -Chicago, Denver, New
Orleans and Son Francisco have
been asked to co-operate with the
New York police In their eltorta to
discover any accomplice of Silver-
steis.
Berkfuan's meeting with Sliver-
atein at the hospital failed to bring
any akow ol recognition on the port
ot either. As Silverstein'a eyes are
sightless and covered with bandages,
two detectives engaged Berkman in
a spirited conversation in Yaddish,
as the trio stood by tbe aide of Sil-
versteln'a cot, watching the wounded man keenly for any sign or movement which might Indicate recognition of Berkman's voice. Nothing
of thla kind occurred, however, and
when Berkman aald positively that
bs had never soon Silverstein before,
there was nothing to do but to take
hlm back to police headquarters.
Police Commissioner Bingham, In

It was to stimulate the commercial
life of the country by fostering habits of    frugality   that saving banks
were Instituted.      In England Jere
my Benthem   first pointed out    the,
value of such Institutions to the nation, and in 1807 Frlscilla Wakefield
first opened one.     In 1810 a  Scottish minister, Bov. Henry Duncan, of
Rothwell,     started a  bank in    his
parish, and in 1817 the first savings
bank In America obtained a charter,
and lt was established at Bost n. In
the application of the legislature for
the charter    of this bank the directors    pointed    out   that the lower
classes were not helped by any alms

acquirement of habits of thrift  and

Mr. Heftan authorized his collegue

statement giving Ids version of the
affray and In accordance with    this
wish Mr. Clayton    lost night    gave
out tho    following.     The facts aa I
havo gathered them ure substantially as  follows:    "Congressman  lOller-
troe ami     Heftan    were riding down
Ponna Ave    in the   direction of tho
Capitol     about    3 o'clock.   Ellerbeo

on tho head. Ono made a motion as
if to draw a weapon from his pocket and at the moment the other
rushed at Heftan. They struggled to
tho platform ond the representative
forced both of them to the streot.
When oh* tho car the two negroes renewed tholr vile oaths and turned
with the evident intention of renewing their attack. Mr. Heftan fired
two shots with his revolver through
one of tho car windows. He did
not aim at either of tho two negroes but shot at the ground with
the intention of dissuading them
from continuing- their-assault;" One
bullet glanced nnd struck McOreary

INDEPENDENT VOTERS.
(Vancouv.t Province.)
If the Liberal    government at Ottawa     ls .successful    In . carrying
through the    House of Commons    a
bill to amend tbe Dominion Election
Elections Act—a measure whlrh has
already had    Its first reading— the
free and Independent voter who succeeds   in polling an anti-government
vote in British Columbia or Manitoba will become the tenth wonder   of
tbe world and entitled to every consideration as a  curiosity.
Apparently fearing the outcome ol
a  free and thoroughly popular selection of representatives ln the House
of Commons at the next general election the Dominion government    has
taken steps    to abolish the present
voters' lists In British Columbia and
Manitoba.    A singular coincidence in
connection   with the matter is that
both theso    provinces are Conservative by an overwhelming majority in
provincial polities.
Bad New Brunswick " flopped" to the
Conservative    sooner    then   it did,
that province would also have  been
included    in the plan to disfranchise
the man known    to be against    tbe
Liberal Federal government.

This most astounding piece of legis

Aylesworth,    minister    of   Justice,
makes it necessary that a new  list
of voters   must be prepared between
now and the date of the Federal elections.     The bill declares that'    the
lists "shall be prepared immediately
after   the Issue of any writ for    an
election—or at any time when    the
a governor- in-council so directs."    It
necessarily follows that the list must
