ter a somewhat lengthy discussion,
Hon. Mr. Oliver was of the opinion
that reserving this large acreage for
the nominal sum of $250, and only requiring an expenditure for the survey
to enable the corporation to obtain
a crown grant, was a very fair proposition, and he certainly thought the
corporation of the city of New Westminster should make every effort to
have the survey carried out In compliance with the terms of tbe order-
in-council. I would strongly recommend that Aid. Jardine, chairman of
the finance committee, arrange (If
possible) to have the survey made,
which would mean that tbe patent for
the land would be issued at once, and
would settle for all time, any doubt
as to the ownership of th9 property,

Our Debt to Ancient Qreece.
Greece and Rome were at the opposite poles of the human world, and
equally opposite are their influences
upon modem times. Home was practical, bard headed, juristic, while Greece
was intellectual, emotional, artistic,
abounding in what may be called the
forebraln versus tbe brain behind the
eats. Rome's empire was lengthy, material, matter of fact, while Greece
banked on the intellectual ami spiritual, finding her greatest conquests In
the realm of mind rather than In that
of matter. Home produced no great
original thinker, her greatest men shining, like the moon, by borrowed light-
light reflected from the sages of Ath7
ens. Koine taught men law, order, obedience, but the mother of Ideas and
sentiments was Greece. From Ihe
Eternal City we have inherited our jurisprudence, but it Is from the City of
tbe Violet Crown that we have derived
our art, science and philosophy. In n
word, to quote the substance of Dr.
Johnson's saying, eliminate from our
modern civilization all that it owes
to Greece and the residue would be barbarism.���New York American.

A Language Maker.
A teacher in a certain fourth
term class at Erasmus Hall High
school was explaining to her pupils
the significance of the German prefix "zer." The English equivalent
is "to make smaller," she explained.
"For instance," she continued, "the
word *brefhen' means 'to break,'
while 'zer-brechen' means 'to break
into smaller pieces,' or 'to shatter.'
"Now," she concluded when she
believed that she had made her pupils understand, "can any one give
me another example?"
Promptly from the rear came a
voice in low, hurried tones:
"'Sprechen,' 'to speak' or 'to
talk;' 'zer-sprechen,' 'to talk in
bunches.' "������Brooklyn Eagle.
No f...ranle For Him.
A clergyman was endeavoring to
instruct one of his Sunday school
scliohm, a plowboy, on the nature
of a miracle. Thinking he had
made it plain, he said. "Now, boy,
suppose you should see the sun rise
in the middle of the night, what
would you call it?" "Tlie moon,
sir." "No, but suppose that you
knew it was not the moon, but the
sun, and that you saw it actually
rise in the middle of the night, what
should you think?" "I should think
it was time to get up, lir."���St

LOYALTY IN THE SERVICE.
The fact that a prominent member
of the Dominion Civil Service has recently been deprived of his official
bead for lack of loyalty to his departmental chief has raised the question
how far a public employee is justified
iu supplying the political opponents
of a Government with information
which comes into his possession by
reason of tlie position he holds.
Are the rules which should govern
the conduct in this respect of a civil
servant any different to the unwritten
rules which govern the employee of a
private firm or corporation ?

subordinates  was supplying informa- jofferin

E. A. Paige Managing Director (obedience, a willingness to submit to
hardship and coarse discipline, are in
any sense the attributes   of a good
workman, rather the opposite; but we
do say broadly, that as   a rule   the
most efficient workman is the    least
tioublesome to his companion workman, and his employer,    and    while
possessing a strong independence he
has a healthy conception of the rights
of others, and is generally  ready to
smooth the difficulties that lie in the
pathway  of  all men.    Men    having
these qualities are desirable in every
community and every effort should be
made to induce such men and their
families to come to us because sucli ���

sure,   eventually,   to  found   his  home!

AN EXECUTION IN INDIA.
��%a War ��� Han Oolltr of Murder Vm*
#trwnt DrrnpltatloB. <-^*.
A letter from India to a German paper gives this account of the execution
near Bombay ef a man who had been
found guilty of the murder of hla
brother-in-law: ���The Question as to
whether the culprit should lie executed
or sent to prison for life was, as Is the
custom, submitted to the family of the
murdered man for decision. All, Including the wife of the murdered, voted for death. When the place of execution was reached the condemned
man knelt, und the ropes which were
fastened to him were handed over to
tbe executioner's assistants. The one
Mho held the neck rope took a few
steps tiefore the kneeling man and the
other two stood at either side. Then
the executioner, armed with a razor
edged, heavy knife, advanced and
asked in a loud voice, 'Who authorizes
tbe execution.' and the^ chief of police
answered, 'The law.' ' The question
was asked and answered three times,
while the armed man advanced, slowly
swinging the mighty blade. As the
last answer was heard an assistant
executioner thrust a needle point Into
the kneeling man's back and he made
an Involuntary motion forward with his
head. The three ropes were pulled
taut, leaving the neck extended to the
utmost At the same instant the knife
whirred through the air nnd the head
���f the murderer rolled ln the sand."
BEECHBTS ONLY  P0��it���
The V��rM�� Were Always Kept
by Mrs. Betehjus,
It was related by Mrs. Henr* Tfard
Beecher that during their courtship Mr.
Beecher once "dropped Into poetry"
and wrote a few lines of verse teeming
with affection for his sweetheart. But
the verses were always kept sacred by
Mrs. Beecher, and nothing could win
them from ber. One day Mr. and Mrs
Beecher were In the office of Robert
Bonner, the publisher.
"Why don't you write a poem, Beecher!" said Mr. Bonner.
"He did once," Jnkl Mrs. Beecher.
"Recite It for me, won't you, Mrs.
Beecher?"
But the eyes of the grent preacher
were riveted on his wife, and ��he knew
tbat he meant silence.
"Come," said Mr. Bonner, "I'll give
you $5,000 If you will recite that poem
to me," addressing Mrs. Beecher.
"Why, It ran"- qulck'r said Mrs
Beecher.
"Eunice!" simply suld Mr. Beecher.
And, although Robert Bonner after-
j ward offered to double the sura first
j offered, be never got the poem from
Mrs.   Beecher.     It   had   been   hidden
away by Mrs. Beecher nnd cherished
as one of  tbe  dearest  treasures  her

THE REAL CHINESE GONQ.'
ft MaVr* an t'proar no   ��w-fnl n* Xi 1.
A*ton<xhlnK.
By the way, did you ever hear a real
Chinese pong? I don't mean a hotel
gong, but one of these great moon
disks of yellow metal Which have so
terrible a power of utterance.
A gentleman in Bangor, north Wales,
(Who had a private museum of south
Pacific and Chinese crrrtosltles, exhibited one to me. II was hanging amid
Fiji spears beautifully barhed with
���harks' teeth, which, together with
grotesque New Zealand clubs of croon
! stoic and Sandwich Island paddles
wrought with the baroque visages of
| tho shark pod, were depend Ing from
the wallfti also there were lr,dmn elephants tn ivory, carrying Mils in their
carven bellies, each ball containing
many other balls inside it.
The gong glimmered pale and huge
and yellow, like the moon rising 0.or a
Southern swamp My friend tapped
Its ancieal. face with _ muffled drum
Stick, and ii commenced to Mb like
waves upon a low beach. He tupped it,
again, and It moaned like tho wind in
��� mighty forest of pines Again, and it
Commenced to roar, and with eaoh tap
the roar .row deeper and deeper till it
seemed like thunder rolling over an
abyss in tho Cordillera* or the eraah-
Itlg of Thor's Chariot wheels.
lt was awful ami astonishing as awful. 1 assure you I did nol laugh at It
tt all. It Impressed n_e as something
terrible and mysterious I vainly
���ought to understand how that thin
disk of trembling metal could produce so frlghtral a vibration. He Informed me that It was very expensive,
being chiefly made of the most precious
metals, silver and gold.-From "Life
and Letters of Lafcadlo Hearn."
BURNING In ePPiSV. ^
*  Caatam   Snra   of   the   Sapvr.tH-.-_-
���f the Aaeleata.
The burning of people In effigy haa
come from a foolish superstition of tho
ancients, who believed that by burning a likeness of a person they were
Inflicting pain upon the Individual himself. Theocritus Mis us that the Greek
sorcerers killed their enemies by magic
rites performed over the effigy of the
person who had offended them, and
Virgil also makes mention of this.
In tbe days of witchcraft and perse
cutlon one of tbe most common charges
..gainst witches was that they made
waxen Images of their enemies whlcfe
they melted before a Are and thus
caused the dissolution of the originals,
The Japanese sttil regard the efflgy
as ��� menus of punishment of faithless
lovers, and In Trance to the time of
tbe first revolution execution by efflg?
was a legal rite, lu the Netherlands
tho same Illogical custom prevailed,
and Ihe dlffeieut religiria burned tho
efllgios Of each Other's leaders with
ledi, mi tiuglnml Hi" burning of effigies wns also practiced, as It WM
later in America,
No doubt from the ancient custom of
burning the elligy arose the Idea of
placing the wax figures of eminent men
In Westminster abbey In olden times
upon the denlb of a celebrity a waxeu
figure represent Ing hlm fully ilresse'
as lu life was made ind ea.rlod In the
rear of tbe funeral procession. After
the service the elligy wis set; up tu the
church an n temporary monument, anil
during the time It "as ou exhibition it
was custuiuury to paste or pin pieces
of paper containing complimentary
epitaphs upon tt. The royal figures In
Westminster abbey date back to the
fourteenth century.-New York Tribune.

that applications be called for to fill
the other position, was adopted.
Aid.  Jardine  reported,   recommend-
| ing that the request of W. A. Gilley
for a lease of water lots 89 and 90
,be granted.    The report was adopted.
A number of recommendations, entailing an expenditure of f 3,000 were
submitted   by  Aid.   Henley,  chairman
of the Board of Works.   Most of these
dealt  with  new  sidewalks    an.l    the
I opening of roads-   One, however, was
of more Importance, being the recommendation of Superintendent Furness
jwith reference to the request of Sap-
,perton residents taht the council  use
their influence to have the B. C. E. R.
double track their line to Sapperton.

who  assured  him  that  the company-
were willing to double track as ��ar as
Leopold   Place,   but   beyond  that  the
: street .was too narrow for that pur-
1 pose.    The result would be a fifteen

The mayor expressed   the   opinion
'that  since  a  large  number of  these
