The RohrrOms-Celnnlal libel  Hall.
(Before Mr. Justice Crease and a Jury.)
This was ah action brought by Capt.
H. I. and Mrs. Robertson, of Moresby
Island, to recover $25,000 from the Colonist proprietors for an alleged libel contained in an article appearing in the Colonist of February 22d. The gist of the
article referred to was to the effect thst
Captain and Mrs. Robertson, owing to
soms misunderstanding with two of their
servants, a Chinese man and woman, had
been the cause of the pair leaving the
house on a raft in very rough weather.
Twcntv-five thousand dollars were asked
for by Capt. Robertson. The jury after
an absence of an hour returned the verdict that the article complained of constituted a libel, but that the plaintiff had
sustained no damage. The question of
costs was reserved.
THIS AND THAT.
up   II
like."
Au old bachelor, who »«s quite a wit.
lived alojie in u very uncomfortable looking place, and his apartments were always in great disorder. "Why don't
you get married*1" said a friend one day.
"Then you would huve some one lo I'm
tilings hen', und make it look home
"The fact is. I've never thouglt
of it," said he, "but it does look reasonable that u bettor half would make better
quarters."
Mr. IleiHrw--there is ouly one, and we
need not mention his front name—made
a speech at Yale yesterday, in which he
explained that the reason why the class
of 1853 waa so famous was that "one-
half of its Members went into journalism
and praised the other half." That explains why "thc other half" became famous, but does he not see how it reflects
upon it to have it said that it depended
for fame on puffs, while the journalistic
half has won its fame bv brains?
Very Small in tho Boy's Eves—Tlie
small boy is a terror when he has an inquiring mind. Such a hoy strolled into
tne editor's room the other day, and at
once proceeded to down the patient man
at the desk. "Are yon on the paper ?''
asked thc bov. "Yes." "What do vou
do?" "Write for it." "Write all the
timo?" "Yes." "Don't do anything
else?" "No." "Just wait for somebody
eise to do something and then write about
it?"    "Yes."     "Um?"  ejaculated the
surviving sufferers by the Pennsylvania
floods. Al though thc fearful devastation
caused hy the flood, the terrible loss of
life, and destruction of propertv have
been very fully
CABLED TO THE LONDON PAPERS,
nothing lias come over in the shape of an
appeal for assistance, and so Englishmen
are left entirely to conjecture as to the
nature and extent of the needs of those
whose lives have lieen spend br the
terrible visitation.. Of course it is surmised that these needs most be urgent
and necessarily very great, but in the
absence of definite information on the
subject, the Americans who are raising
funds so far have been kept to themselves.
The sympathies of Englishmen are, however, deeply interested, and nothing is
needed now but an accurate and reliable
statement from America.
OF  WHAT FUNDS  AU  REIALIRED
to insure the collection of very* large
sums for tlie relief of the suffers, and
when this information is supplied, every
city, village and hamlet in the United
Kingdom wiil respond generously and
promptly. Relief Committees have been
organized in every London hotel where
Americans reside, ami these havo already
in their hands several thousands of
pounds which will be cabled over at once.
THE  LO«D  MAYOR Or   LONDON
will probably organise • National Relief
Fund as soon as the necessity for each a
course becomes manifest.
HAILSTONES AS LARUE AB WALNUTS IK LANCASHIRE.
Unusually heavy storms and floods are
reported from Lancashire and elsewhere,
in some cases attended by loss of life.
In Bilston and Millenhall. in Staffordshire, hailstones fell the size of walnuts,
smashing windows and ruining crops,
for many miles.
BERLIN  PRESS SAVAGE.
A howl goes up from the Editors of
Berlin to-day which may or may not
reach the ears of the Bisasarckiaos,
but in either event they probably will
not allow it to disturb the serenity of
their sleep. The Berlin Press is more'
than usually interested in the proceedings
of the Samoan Conference, sitting a
stone's throw from their Editorial dens,
but so far as any information they could '
get about its deliberations are concerned
they might as well have been thousands
of miles away,

THE DECEASED   WIFE'S  SISTER
QUESTION.
The question of the "Deceased Wife's
Sister " has been much discussed of late
years and has, some of our readers may
think, become somewhat hackneyed. As
it is a matter, however, of more or less
interest to all, we think the extremely
able and lengthy letter of the Bishop of
Bath and Wells, setting forth thc reasons
against the proposed bill for legalizing
such marriages, and recently published
in thc Times, will be not unwelcome
reading for our subscribers. So far ns
we know, the feeling of the laity generally is, both in the Colonies and the
Mother Country, in favor of the legalizing
of such marriages; yet we are quite willing to hear the other side, though for
ourselves we confess our mind in the
question has long been made up. Of
this we may ibe sure, that every forcible
argument which can he brought fbrward,
has been adduced by the Lord Bishop,
so that if they do not prevail upon us to
alter our views on this burning question,
we may feel quite satisfied that we have
as it were heard the ablest counsel who
has held a brief for the other side.
Sir,—As I may nodhave airopportunity
of speaking on the subject in the House
of Lords next Thursday, T*venture to ask
you to allow me to state in your columns
some of the views which I think ought
to influence the "House to reject the Bill
for legalizing marriage with a deceased
wife's sister.
Much appears to me to depend "npon
the spirit in which we approach the subject. A more grave and momentous
matter for legislation than the alteration
of the marriage law of a country I canndt
imagine. The marriage law lies at. thc
very foundation of human society. It
finds a place in tlie Bible prior to the fall
of man. Many centuries before the
Mosaic law was given, coeval with the
creation of man, at the very fountain
head of our race, tlio word of God fixed
the marriage law in its fundamental conditions, A moment's reflection shows
us the wisdom of this pre-eminence
given in Scripture to the relations of man
and woman. For the family is tlie feature
which distinguisties the human society
and affects it in its most vital interests;
and the family, with all its sanctity and
all its power to elevate and purify nnd
civilize mankind, is absolutely dependent
upon the marriage law. No nation with
a corrupt marriage law ever rose, or ever
can rise, to a high standard of civilization.
Disturb the marriage law and you disturb and weaken all the relations of man
with man. Witness all countries where
polygamy prevails and all nations where
the marriage-tie has in practice been
loosened and despised. These considerations require that w6 should approach
the whole subject of the marriage laws
with reverential caution.
Another preliminary consideration of
great weight in approaching.the question
of legalising, marriage with a deceased
wife's sister is thc impossibility of stopping there. You have ndw a definite
principle upon whiqli your law is based.
Relationship by consuguinity or affinity
Within a defined limit is a bar to marriage.
But once break through that principle
and allow marriage with a sister-in-law,'
and how can you forbid marriage with a
brother's or uncle's widow, or with a
mother-in-law, or a -tcp-mothcr? And,
not only se, but experience teaches the
sad lesson that airy relaxation of tho law
of marriage has a certain tendency to
lead to other and worse relaxations. Let
any one read the history ofthe Herod
family in Josephus or elsewhere, or turn
his attention to the state of marriage
among the Romans in thc time of the
twelve Ctesars, and surely thu Loathsome
record of incest, and adultery, and
divorce, with all their-train of shame and
misery, will make him hesitate before he
begins to pull doWn the fences which-
guard aniL-protect the sanctity of matrimony.
But these are only preliminary considerations which.do not decide thc question whether marriage with a wife's sister ispermissible by the laws of God, or
is conducive to the welfare of mankind.
To decide this we must turn to Holy
Scripture first, and then get what light
we can from our o\v*h' reason.
■Now, asjregards Holy Scripture, I do
not think we Christians must expect any
direct precept on the subject. Thelevi-
tical law in ita details does not apply to
to the Christian Church; but we con
gather the spirit of (he Divine law from
its application to the Jews.   Now, one of
em «» -
the censes of the extirpation of the nations of Canaan was their incestuous
marriages, by which their land was defiled; and in the enumeration of those
incestuous anion* in the 18th and 20th
chapters of Leviticus we find no distinction between relationship by blood and
relationship by affinity. The uncle's
wife is an aunt, as much as fattier or mother'* sister. The wife's relations are the
same aa the husband's (Levit. xviii., 17),
and *e osu tt see***, therefore^ inevitable tettXiclntJe thttttffwftV* »*-***• is in
the same relation to the husband as his
own sister. And this has heen the sen
timent of the Christian Church throughout ill age*, and the law of our land has
been conformed to it ever Bince we have
been a nation.
And surely our own reason will confirm the conclusion which  we  gather
'torn Holy Scripture. The introduction
of suspicion, and jealousy, and intntjue
iuto the closest family circles cannot be
for the welfare or happiness of society.
Either a dangerous licence or galling restrictions of the freedom of brotherly aud
sisterly mtereourse must be the consequence of the "abolition of sisters-in-
law," to the great detriment of the
family.
But it is said that in the interests of
the poor it is expedient to legalize such
marriages, because the sister-in-law is
the person to whom the poor widower
naturally turns: to take care of his motherless children. Can any one consider
this argument for'one minute without
soeing, its utter hollowness. If the poor
man's sister-in-law is felt by him, and by
her, and by the public opinion of hiB
class to be his sister, and not a possible
bride, sbe will be able, as blamelessly
and safely as if sho was his sister by consanguinity, to go to bis bouse and supply tho place of the deceased mother to
his children, But if the sister-in-law is
a possible and probable bride, what will
happen? If she is a virtuous woman
she will refuse to place herself in a position of suspicion aud danger, and so flie
legalizing inarrinire wilh the wife's sister
will have deprived tlie widower and his
children of help ut the time of need. If
She is not a virtuous woman, or is a weuk
woman, sbe will go with the almost certainty of becoming his concubine till tin
time comes when he thinks it decent to
marry. In this case the change of law
will have directly promoted immorality.
It seems to me, therefore, that every
consideration Bhould induce us, whether
as patriots or as Christians, to set our
faces resolutely against the proposed
change in tbe marriage law. And I
earnestly hope the House of Lords will
reject the Bill by such a decisive majority as will check for a lone time the pernicious agitation of the question.
I remain, your faithful servant,'

EDITORIAL   NOTES.
THE
VERY    LATEST
COLONY.
BRITISH
An oflicial report has just been published concerning tbo most recent addition to the British Empire. With much
useful information concerning New
Guinea and its resources, this report of
Sir. Musqrave's contains statements as
to the salubrity of the climate which we
have every reason to believe are unfounded, or at least highly colored and
far too sanguine in their nature. Granting that the soil is of the richest, that
gold is found in the streams, that rare
and costly trees grow in the forests, and
with one exception—that "only man is
vile," yet that one exception means so
much, tbat as we have occasion to know
whereof we speak, we feel it our duty in
the public interest to controvert the
opinion expressed in this latest official
report as to the climate of this splendid
island. Mr. Mcsorave who discusses the
sanitary condition of British New Guinea
with some minuteness anil with nn evident attempt at Impartiality; points out
that though a dreadful mortality has
taken place among thc Polynesian missionaries who were imported with their
wives and families to carry on the work
of introducing Christianity among the
natives, during the last 20 years—yet
thinks that it was owing to exceptional
and peculiar circumstances tbat this
abnormal mortality took place among the
native teachers. Our experience shews
us that, exceptional circumstances notwithstanding, when a tropical climate
proy«ip deadly to natives of the
tropics, it is perfectly intolerable to white
men. Our reason for bringing this mutter
forward so prominently, is that only the
other day an. old resident, and golil-miner
ot British Columbia, expressed to us hie
intention of going to New Guinea, as „he
had lately seen some very glowing accounts of that as yet terra incognita. In
the report to which we refer, Mr. Mcs-
qBAVE states the "climate of New Guinea
has beon much maligned; that it iB no
worse than that of Northern Queensland,
and tliKt there ie no reason why the
country should not bo colonized* by
natives of Great Britain." It is this particular assertion to which we take exception. In the first place the climate of
Northern Queensland is not such ns to encourage Britlshuimmigration. We have
ourselves seen the thermometer stand
more than once at from 115 to 120'in tho
shade even at Cookstown. Thie fact
needs no comment for those who know
anything about the tropics. The few
white men to be found managing the
sugar plantntiolis of the vast district surrounding thc Gulf nf Capricorn,'havo a
wasted, .played out appearance—spiritless in manner, with lack-lustre eyes and
sallow cheeks. Fevers and rheumatism
abound, or did so when we there. We
ourselves had once arranged to make one
of a private expedition which had been
fitted out for- the purpose of exploring
Now Guinea from Mouth to North. W
had provided ourselves with Timor
ponies ami rt party of Kanakas and much
''trade," i. e. glass beads, knives, qarpen-
tere' tools, and brightly woven fabrics
but before the expedition could croBS
Torres Strhitfl—which separates Australia
from New Guinea—three of our small
party were prostrated with rheumatic or
■low fever, and had to return to Brisbane.
No ultimate good is ever achieved by
false statements ae to the advantages of
any new country—indeed harm is far
more likely to result. It is with the full
consciousness of this fact before us that
we have endeavored to place the facts of
the case before the public, believing that
if we are thc means of preventing even
one person from leaving British Columbia for New Guinea, we shall be amply
recompensed.

The Grrat Rush.—Owing to the immense number of purchasers visiting Mr.
Bullock's establishment on Saturday
anxious to take advantage erf his disposal of
is Stock at cost, he and his clerks were un-
ble to attend toa great number of customers.
He regrets that so many went away un
served, and if possible he would advise some
of his friends to shop in the morning when
hey cculd be better watted upon. "
In these, days, of.patent medicines
there is nothing no vet'y. startliifg in the
following account given by a paper published in Calcutta, as to the treatment to
which- the Guikwar of Baroda subjects
himself, lt appears that pulverized diamonds are in some parts of India reputed
to be the least powerful, but thc most
active and infallible of all poisons, yet
ruhieB reduced to powder are considered
to be rather beneficial to the health than
otherwise. At least we judge that Buch
is the opinion of the powerful Indian
Prince who we read is now engaged in repairing hie' constitution, and with this
view is in the habit of eating rubies in
the form of a line powder sprinkled over
cakes. His Highness, it Ib stated, entertains a very high opinion of the medicinal
qualities of rubies taken in this form, and
expends a considerable portion of his
income in buying these gems for conversion into physic. Healso seems to take
other precioue stones, not as pills, but as
powders, to assist in the restoration of
his health, and has engaged a large number of native cooks who have strict
orders to leave no stone unpowdered
which when mixed with confectionery
may be eaten with advantage. It is to
be hoped that the Guikwar's cooks do
not abuse the confidence reposed in them
by appropriating the gems to their owr
use; but the temptatiou must be one
which no BritishA'ook could withstand,
and it would be hardly prudent, we fear,
for any wealthy invalid even in tikis
country, who adopts a jewel diet iu imitation of the unfortunate Hindoo
"Highness," to allow the pulverization
process to be carried on in the kitchen.

NOTICE.
We do not class ourselves among the
"fife-eaters" who for some two years or
so have advocated a war of reprisal upon
U. S. shipping in Behring Sea. .But we*
are unable to dieguise from ourselves the
fact that there must always, be more or
less danger of an explosion, when we
provide powder, the match being already
on the spot, aud only requiring ignition.
We hope that this question as to whether
Behring Sea is to be an American preserve, or open to all comers will be settled as soon ns possible, this being essentially one of those matters as to the settlement of which, ii " 'twere well
twere well done, then 'twere
well 'twore well done quickly."
Diplomatic correspondence usually drags
its weary length over long months in
atfairs of the kind to which we refer; in
the meantime all the materials for breeding trouble between two great nations
will have been gathered as it were into a
heap, and if by any mischance the light
should be applied* it is not easy to foretell the end.
It is officially announced that Sir
Hercules Robinson will return to South
Africa after a short leave of absence, ns
Governor of Cape Colony for at least
three jours. This announcement will be
a very gratifying one to those who have
the welfare of the Empire at heart. Sir
Hercules is eminently fitted by nature to
preside over such conflicting elements as
prevail at the present time in South
Africa. With tho tact uud eloquence of
Lord Dufferin, though perhaps without
the extreme ability of the late Viceroy of
India, he is the beau ideal ot a. Colonial
governor. Wben in New Soutli Wales,
he was extremely* popular, partly on
account of his love for horses and racing
besides most other sports, whilst he never
for a moment forgot the graver responsibilities'which rested "upon his shoulders.
We have frequently seen him drive
through the streqjs of Sydney (N.S.W.),
one hand firmly guiding his team of four
thoroughbreds* while the other held his
H*t, as he bowed to the cheering paBsers-
by. His career in New Zealand was also
6uch as to give him almost unexampled
popularity; hence it is eminently satisfactory to see in these troublous times
men such as tlie present High Commissioner of South Africa retained In posts
of exceptional responsibility.

BILL   NYE  GOES  SHOPPING.
Ba Says He Like, to Shop Batter In Boston Than in Uotham.
I always go and visit the Old South church
when In Boston, because I like to see the old
and pleasantcannon balls with whichdiaagree-
, able people ware killed whan tbey acted Improperly. I also Ilk* to attend a church
whsra I can criticise things without hurting
any one's feelings. After I visit the old
church I like to go around over the Bub and
buy things, I hate to contrast any city with
my own town, but a nervous person with a
shrinking nature oan do better, and enjoy it
better while shopping In Boston than In Hew
York. The Boston merchant evidently
bought hi* goods for the purpose of selling
them to the consumer, while the New York
merchant appears to have purchased them
more for tbe wild excitement of looking at
them himself.
I always have my feelings hurt wben I shop
In New York. In the first place, 1 am enraged before I get to the store by 067,236 people who knock me over and get on the elevated trains before the passengers oan get
oil Then 1 go to a store and wait near a
stack of wet umbrellas until several total
strangers, with a haughty air, jostle me
. against the wall
I next speak to a Boor walker, who plays
that be owns the store, and Is allowed to
draw that Instead of a salary, Ba looks at
ma askance, as If he feared that I might be
Nellie Bly. He goes over to confer with a
heavy set saleslady, to inquire of her, evidently, whether I am there wltb sinister motives, and while I tremble at the thought
that I am about to ba searched for said motives, another man, who plays that he owns
the store afternoons, comes along and asks
nvs what I want there.
I tell him that I am a simple minded man,
mora or less picked on both at home and
abroad | that I would spend an enormous
fmfflint oi money in New York If I had a
chance; that today I had contemplated buying or trading for a full set of two heavy Na
10 English hose with double soles and a striking iisssnlilsnne to each other. Nobody could
be any more explicit than that without being
offensive. I Just tell a man what I want
right at the start, and then tf there should be
any daisy It his fault
Be looks at me sorrowfully and begins to
feel In his pocket for something. I say, "Put
up your gold. Gat out with your dross. 1
am not poor or erased by suffering. lam
only waiting to present a letter of introduction to the sock lady tf lean obtain an audience with ber. I would be satisfied with even
every small audience with her." Be tells
ma where ths office is, and I go then. She
watts a long time before I seem to catch her
eye. 8he looks through me, snd so on across
the store to a given point   She then says:

Besides one to get the postage on letters just
Pocket pin cushions of stamped leather,
with initial letter of surname on either tide
in silver emanate, it is said, from the Women's Exchange.
Enough women to fill a hall have yet to
'earn that turning down visiting cards is ob-
tfili-te. and only an evidence of exceeding,
"wnybackism."
There is nothing quite ho conducive to out
and out, downright, real ugliue.ss as a toboggan .-nil on a girl of the period. "A fright"
is no name for it.
Tho lamp and table combined is not only
ornamental nut useful, aud the inventor is to
be congratulated upon tilling to the top a
"long felt want."
Just why men nhould wear cloth gutters in
winter is something in the line of a riddle,
excepting, of course, they urn all out of any
but low cut shoes.
Luce trimmed table cloths and napkiiut are
properly voted vulgar. "Our best people"
cling to plain, heavy white damask, and they
know they're right.
During Lc.it small imrsonal ornaments of
anocclc-iii. :ic.il character, a leading Jeweler
says, will li.: t'ashiouable here, as they were
in Paris a year ago.
Etchings wero never ia such great demand
as'now. Society appears to have gone mad
over Ihein, and talks, too, about them, as if
it were really crazy.
Men who havo gold or silver mounted pistols usually shoot themselves somewhere
when endeavoring to fire off the unnecessarily elegant-weapons.
The newest Parisian Derby hat has a lower
crown and wider brim than the one in vogue
here. It is almost heavy enough to make
little Frenchmen totter.
Hired girls do not taka kindly to the new
electric clock operated by a wire from
milady's bed room, and regard it as a wicked
invention of the enemy. ^
A reward of $75 for a pet cat that has gone
astray, or has been purloined, to help line a
circular for servant girls, indicates they ere
still in fashionable favor.
Those fancy straw Bar Harbor baskets ere
extensively used for Gorman favors, and the
girl who has the most can effectively hang
them on an Alpine tripod.
Men who resort to manicures for dainty
finger nails are the ones who, in the event of
a Are, would escape themselves and forget to
rescue women and children.
Some fur bonnets are seen, but are not to
be admired for mora than an hour at one sitting. Women who wear tbem probably do
not mind being conspicuous.
A large fairy lamp in the center of the
table, and smaller ones at each plate, is a
dinner party fashion that is productive of
pretty and brilliant results.
At the formal dinner party where caterers
ore employed no carving is done at the table
by tbe best, and everything is passed. This
on the authority of a fashion paper.
The amount of money represented by carriage furs and robes this winter makes an
anti-povertyite go out of tight and weep as a
whangdoodle mourning over the kidnapping
of her young.
Valentines are very elaborate and costly,
and take the forms of souvenirs that are
practical, useful and everlasting. This year's
display already made would delight the
heart of a wooden girl.

assuage the weary schings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous media, and
regulate thc emulating systems of the body,
you.will provide yourself with tnat marvellous remedy discovered by Dr. J. Collis
Browne (late Army Medical Staff), to which
he gave thc name of CHLORODVNE, and
which is admitted by the profession to be the
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.
CHLORODYNE is the liest remedy
known for Coughs, Consumption, Itronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODVNE acts like a charm la
Diarrhoea, antl is the only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CHLORODYNE effectually cuts short all

From Syiiu's & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Deai
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon thc wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jtowne's Chlorodyne, has earned fo.
itself, not only in. Hintlostan, but all ovei
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into thc country, and we shall Iw
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, arc now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their sale!
we fancy their sojnrn there will be but
evanescent. Wc could multiply instances
infinitum of thc extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhce,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have occurred
und. t our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used *.ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly thc best, snd
slso from a sense of duty wc owe to the pro]
fission and the public, as we .re ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are tit,

Hotel Change.
Messrs. Osterhout A Kennedy have,
we are informed, sold out their interest
in the Central Hotel of this city to Geo.
L. Howe and W. Cs Halleck.' J' We presume that Mr. W. C. Halleck will assume
the management, as Mr. Howe, we understand, bill various interests on the Sound
which may require his presence. Mr.
Halleck has been known in .Nanaimo
long and favorably, and is deservedly and
widely respected. We wish to express
ourpleasiire at once more seeing him a
fixture in the town, nnd hopethat he will
obtain tho success ho merits.
Horee Knee.
We are informed that a race has been
made between W. Haslam's horse "Dexter" anfi T. Ktlpfttriek's black horse that
won the scrub.race on tlie '/iith ,of Mny.
The race is to be run on the 23th inst.,
and is for $loO aside; distance one
mile and repeat, each horse to carry 140
pounds. Tbe winning post will he at the
Dewdrop Inn, which will necessitate the
start taking place near the-cut on the
Victoria road. •
The race between "Dexter" nnd L.
Gabriel's "Molly" will not be run ns the
owner of "Molly" withdrew and forfeited
the money put up.

Cricket.
There wae some talk in the early part
of the spttng about the formation of a
Nanaimo cHcket club. W*b have hearil
nothing about the matter of late, though
it seems a pity that such a grand game
should be unable to take root among us
If a suitable ground could be obtained we
prophesy that it would speedily become
the favorite rendezvous of the youth of
the town; cricket in many respects hav-
ing'advantageB not possessed by football
If some of our local athletes would take
the matter in hand with the determina
tion to send the scheme along, the want
of a suitable ground would, we think,
not be long an insuperable difficulty.
Nanaimo suit -mill.
We viBited Haslem A: Lees' sawmill
yesterday and were surprised to see the
amount of lumber 'cut and stacked by
this enterprising firm. Mr. Haflcm
showed ue where he was constructing a
new dam, with a sliding gate, for the
purpose of keeping afloat the logs necessary for immediate use.
The firm has lately built a house for
the "storage of doors and window sashes!
Under the eaves of the building are placed several feet of hose and ladders, to be
used in case of fire. Tlie hose is simply
laid around the building, and not, as in
ordinary eases, coiled. This plan was
adopted becatise the hydrant, whuh is
the property of the company, is close at
hand.
The machinery was not working on the
occasion of our visit owing to some • repairs being made in the stenm pipes.
The'Nanaimo Brew erj-.
We visited Alderman Mahrer yesterday in his Brewery retreat and discovered that the worthy Alderman instead of
occupying tbe whole of his time compounding fluid to allay the undying
thirst 01 his customers, was equally interested in raising chickens,'ducks, and
peafowl.
Aid. Mahrer introduced us, with all
due ceremony, to one of the lineal peacocks it has ever been our lot to see. The
bird seemed conscious of the attention
paid to bim and strutted proudly over
the potato * bed* and young ducks with
tbat mixture of pride and contempt that
onlv a Jfcaooek can assume. Our*tieit
visit was to the bird's mate, which is
Bitting on several eggs in'tte garden and
ia watched with great solicitude bv the
Alderman and his help, bulletins being
aent in whenever she' abandons her nest
for exercise.
We also looked into the cool cellars.
which are being refitted, but of that wo
won't say mnch aa the weather is warm
and several have been there before and
sampled the Alderman's beer ae drawn
from the wood.

Referred to Street Committee.
Aid. Nightingale said there was n piece
of cribbing to be done heal' the land to
be handedoverto the Tanning Company,
and he thought the Company would subscribe half the cost
Aid. Abrams said he would answer for
thc Tanning Company subfcvribii'g ,hal!
the cost of the cribbing.

Aid. MhhrcT—I gave notice that I
would more that an Alderman be appointed to the Hoard of License Commissioners.   I propose Alii. Ililberl.
Aid. Webb—What art: the duties of the
Alderman appointed'.'

Aid. Hilbert wits only intending to vote
for one license. I don't think it is true
bul wish to mention it right here
every confidence In Aid. Hilbert.
Aid. Hilhert said he was under Ihe impression that better men could have been
found, and under the circumstances he
must   decline   tlie    election.     I    have
said nothing to anyone about the matter
Aid. Abrams said he didn't wish  Aid.
Hilbert to resign as h'e  reposed the utmost confidence in his integrity.
Aid. Baker proposed Aid. Nightingale,
Aid. l'eck seconded the motion.
Aid.   Baker  said he considered that
Aid. Nightingale had the beet Yight.to
the position, us lie had worked well and
faithfully   for   the  good  of the city lor
some time.
Aid. Hilbert on being requested to
stand, by bis proposer, withdrew his
resignation and said he would abide, the
issue of the contest.   ' .,
Aid.   Beck—Before   the   voting  commences, I object to Aid. Mahrer voting.
The  voting  was  done by a show of
hands ami Coun. Hilhert was elected.
Aid. Nightingale said he wished to
thank his proposer and seconder for the
kind words they had said regarding him,
antl ho would endeavor, to the beet of his
ability, to do his duty. He bad always
striven te make the public money go as
far aB possible, and had invariably bad
the interests of the citv nt heart.
Aid. l'eck saitl he again objected to Aid.
Mahrer voting.
Aid. Webb suid he would like the City
Council, to put up horse troughs as water
was verv scarce round the city.
The Mayor didn't think it was the duty
of the City Council to provide water for
other people's horses. The water, pipes
and troughs will have to be provided.
, Aid. Baker—We had two formerly and
thev didn't cost much.
Aid. Abrams—We have now to deal
with the Water Works, and it ie probable
that people who are not paying lor their
water will use that in the trough.
Aid. Peek wished to know if the water
in the dams would not play out.
Aid. Nightingale said.(Jiat was not very
probable, but at the same time we muy
iinvo to pay for the water we give away.
The scheme is a good one, but wc want
every dollar we'-have to uso on the
streela.
Aid. Abrams moved that the matter be
referred to tlie Street Committee.
Motion carried.
Aid Hilbert—1 have been up Franklyn
Street and am satisfied there iB plenty of
drainage fnr the stagnant water that it
lying in front of tho Chinese wash house?
I move that a man be put to work to
clean out the drain,
Aid. Baker—If you call upon the Street
Committee to clean out that drain you
may as well call upon tho City Council
to clean out tho drains all o»-cr the city.
What we want is a system of sewerage
throughout the City. What right have
we to run filth from ihe front of a Chinese
house to the door of a white man's house.
Aid. Hilbert said he referred to clean
water, which ho thought might hotter be
allowed to run off and eyaporato
Aid. Webb taid he believed there were
some more seats needed in the Institute
Hall.
Tbe City Clerk said there   were sufficient for ordinary purposes,   and  other
|J entertainments supplied extra chairs. It
1" Is often difficult to find room for them.
Aid. Nightingale said that with regard
to the hoso cart it would be well  to find
out the cost of one before proceeding in
the matter.     No doubt it is wanted on
Haliburton Street. -   He movotl that the
Firewardens find out -the cost nnd communicate it to the Council, ns a hose cart
was   wanted   on    Haliburton    Street
badly.
Motion carried.
Ald.Abrams*-Has tho City Council
taken any action in the "matter of obtaining legal advice and transferring the land
to the Tanning Company ? I move that
Mr. McElmen be requested to revise the
matter if he will do it ns reasonably as
