THE  COQUITLAM DAM.
The construction of a dun, ul Coquitlam lake by the Vancouver Power

mu en Saturday certalnl} took an unusual curse in pra'ctlcallj voting that |

council r, pr, sentatives appointed to
attend at Victoria on Tuesday, and
nominating ..ne of the speakers to
accompany the delegation. The natural Infen nee which will be drawn
by the Provincial executive Is that
the citizens themselves are divided on
tho question, nod cannot trusl delegates from a'body chosen but a month

If tin- speakers on Saturday nigh!

question an   issue at   the election.
Both  Mr. J. A. Let   and  Mr   .1.  W.
Creighton  have  taken an  active pari
ia the conferences  which ha\ ��� taken
place, and the latter particularly has
siu.wi    himself   prominent   in   joining

wih reference to the clearing of the
sw; nip, but is n..t the delegation JubI j
us keen to see the city's rights safeguarded?    We ii" ,,"i say the speakers mentioned were a party to it. but
throughout tie   meeting there was a
spirit of innuendo    and    Insinuation
prevalent among s  large nnrt of the
audience which ought    not   to  characterise public meetings without very
sufficient   cause.
Much was said about the need for
another expert engineer's opinion. Mr.
L- Baron had no prejudices when he

"Beally," he concluded, with a i jr

" 'Henrv, if I die promise ine one
thing.'
" 'Gladly, my poor darling. What
U it 1 am to promise ?'
" 'Promise me that you will marry Mary Simpson.'
"The man started.
" 'But,-' he said, 1 thought ywp
bated her.'
" 1 do, Henry,' the dying woman
wiuBpesed. 'I want to get even
with her.'" *

If the lemming's powers were proportioned to his pluck, the lemming
would make things lively for the
hunter. It attacks with reckless fury
the harmless passerby. One of theae
���-eutures, smaller than a rat, will assail without n second thought u couple
��f human helngs weighing 1G<> pounds
apiece. It will spring to one's knees,
barking nnd biting, and In purbllnA
fury fall back "nil ends up" to the
earth, only to renew the attack npratn
and ngaln. One day while one lemming wns flying at me another from
beyond n wnnll stream joined In the
demonstration and presently i���'nrr
across to get to close quarters. I was
not quite sure thnt the tirst fall Intu
the water was not accidental, l"tt
hajd4y think so, Blnce once there It
came straight to the charge.���"W��id
