I hnmberlnin insisted upon the nomination of Bright, and threatened to disrupt
the Unionist-Tory coalition if Churchill
should be selected. The Radical leader
wns remonstrated with,but to no purposee,
nnd finally, rather than to face losing the
sent, the Hartington faction deferred to
his wishes.

Louis AugiiBtin Good preferred n charge
of assault against Peter Pe-cl. Tlie assault was said to have occurred last Saturday. The origin of the dispute was
that l'e-el had run a fence across the road
leading to the Nanaimo Indian cemetery.
Louis Good was the sworn Constable of
the tribe, antl attempted to stop the pro-1
cccdings. Peter objected, and claimed j
thai Louis assaulted him. and brought as
evidence a swollen lip and a bloodstained
shirt. The mauistrale decided that as the
row occurred over a. land question, he
would send all particulars of the case to
Mr. Looms, the Indian Agent, whose
business it was to attend to it. Mr. I'lan-
ta then gave the disputing parlies a great
deal of good advice, aud  dismissed them.
The court was filled with Indiana inter-
efited in the case.

eloquent sermon recently in All Souls
Church, New York, on "The Evangelization of New York."
He said that hearts nre still hungry foi
a genuine gospel, but thnt the churches
must distinguish between theology nnd
religion. They must take hold nml solve
the great soHnl problems, instead of, ns
now, often resisting any honest endeavor
to solve them.    No'word against  Ihe root

Miss Campbell, Miss Webb, Messrs.
Rushford, Aijvle, Hamilton, Professor l.e
Maine and others.
Thc meetings of the Debating Club have
beena grand success, and it is to be hoped
that its efforts in furnishing these excellent entertainments wifl result in the formation of a permanent society of this
kind.
OUR OITY FATHERS.
The regular weeklv meeting of the council was held last night. There were present His Worship Mayor Bate, antl Aldermen Peek, Hilbert, Abrams, Mahrer,
Nightingale nnd Webb.
The minutes of the last meeting were
read and adopted.
ing a stake en the hill known as Little
mountain, at Nanoose, as anywhere on
Texada. He showed our correspondent
a fine piece of quartz containing free gold,
that he had discovered not far from his
claim. Thc sites for the telephone poles
to the I'nion Mines, Ceinox, have been
measured od'. The farmers In the Nanoose
district are clearing and ploughing land.
They say the chances for a good crop ef
bay this year are excellent. Nanoose Hob
says there is an nntisiially lur^e run of
dog fish there this season.
Attem-Teii Kitcii.k.—John Kempe, cm-
ployed at mine No. (J., Wellington, who
had been noticed to act in a strange manner for some three weeks back, while at
supper on Sunday evening in the bouse
of his son-in-law! Mr. John  l»wis,  Sud
ani! he wished them to continue workin_
there. He thought, $100 would make a
gook job. The water lay between Quennell and Moffatt's lots.
The Street Committee will do the work
as soon ns possible.
Aid. Webb said that, the principal streets
wanted Attending to.
Aid. Nightingnls said wonders had boon
worked on Commercial Street. Bastion
Street was in very good condition. A new
crossing was needed from Skinner across
Commercial Street. The trouble was
they could not, gravel Skinner Street on
account of the lumber lying on It.
Aid. Abrams wished to know if Mr. McAdie had signed the contracts for having
the sidewalks on Albert and Farquhnr
Streets, if not, let tho next lowest bidder
have the contract.
Aid. Hilbert said that McAdie took the
contract for two other mon. and that they
hnd gone nway. He had also made a mistake in the the thliknessof the lumber.
McAdie had told him that perhaps he
would put down the sidewalk on Albert
Street, in the fall, but ho would not touch
Farquhnr Street.
Aid, Mahrer—Did Vinnnd si-in the eon-
tract for aradint.' Deverlil Square?
Aid. Nightingale did not think he would
sign it. In future he thought that 10 per
cent of Ihe price of the timber should be
sent sent with the tender. That was the
way it wns done in the Dominion Government, and the City Council was run on
ne. rly ns large n scale. People thought
they could fool with the Council.
The Mayor wished to know that was
to bo done about the celebration of the
Queen's birthday. He wished tbe Council to take hold of Iho matter.
Aid. Mahrer—The papers had been giving the saloon keepers a good deal ef
bluff lately, saving that they ran the thin,
to suit themselves.
Aid. Abrams said that if it had not been
1 for the saloon keepers there wonld have
' lioen no sport nt all some years. He had
| been Treasurer for 10 years, and ought to
I know.
j    The  Mayor  decided  to  call a public
I meeting at 8 :H0  p.m.  on  Mondav, 15th
inst., after the Council meeting.
Aid. Nightingale wished  the Council to
purchase a stump oxtnv-tor belonging^
Mr. Ilevland. C. E. The machine could
I be bought complete for $.0. It had it lifting capacity of 411,000 pounds, and would
soon pay fur itself. He Would lik" the
Street committee to get it on trial.
Motion carried.
The Council then adjourned.
