'hat the gas could not compete with
the electric light, and made the state-
ment that, the firm would supply gas
to any five applicants, laying the
mains to the property line. With
reference to the laying out of the
.treets, the company had a competent
engineer in Los Angeles who would
take charge of tin. worft within two
weeks after the franchise was grant-ad,
laying out the city in districts and
blocks and preparing detailed plans
and maps of the pipe lines.
Aid. Henley expressed himself in
favor of the franchise being granted.
He could not see that the opening ot
the streets would be much worse
than at. present.
Aid. Johnston could not see flny
reason that would Justify the council
standing In the way of the granting
of the franchise,Mf there waR a possibility of the citizens receiving
cheaper light and power. He believed
thnt competition was n gooi! thing li
I'liuninglxam referred to the newcomers ln the heat of his words as
adventurers, and asserted that even
though they were given a franchise,
the old company would live to compete with the new. ll was all non-
eeuse to believe that the company
could extend .their mains to any part
of The city In order to supply live
citizens. But If the two companies
got Into active competition, the dty
electric light wotild be down and out.
A burst of dissent from the aldermen greeted the latter statement, and
.Mr. Robins, whose ire had been rising
while Mr. Cunningham was speaking,
jumped to his feet declaring wrath-
fully that while he respected tbe age
of the speaker, yet even were he an
older man, he would not take from
Jilm tho Insinuations that had been
made, and warned him to be careful
of his words. He was no adventurer,

With Rev. W. H. Barraclough occupying the chair, the Westminster

yesterday afternoon in Sapperton
Methodist church, over twenty delegates being in attendance from all

ternoon the delegates were served

1482. The sum of $1,263.85 has been
raised by tbe different schools.

a church membership of 1,231, -while
lhe amount of $2488 had been raised
Cor missionary purposes. The total
amount raised for all purposes was
$21,_ .0, an increase of $4,305 over the
previous year.
It was decided to include Sun bury.
Strawberry Hill and Brownsville into

be known as the South Westminster
district.

lightly, ,and F. W. Hunt.
A motion, introduced by C. J. Uoo-
sorr and seconded by Dr. White, dealing with the cigarette evil, was passed. Following is the text of the motion: "That In view of the widespread
and growing evil arising from the acquiring of the cigarette habit by many
of our growing boys and young m/m,
and the serious physical and moral
injury resulting therefrom, we urge
upon th's conference the in_por.-_._-_e
of using all possible Influence in the
direction of procuring legislation prohibiting the sale and manufacture of
cigarettes."
Another motion was passed as follows: **The district league begs leave
to recommend that the conference

reform formulates plans to educate
pubfic sentiment on local option
throughout the province, and, further.
In our opinion, a. petition should ue
circuited praying for local option.

The chairman was requested to

REPORT

���,.������:.���������:;���*..���������.:-���:
UHing to thc seeding operations . e-
ing now on and the farmers being too
busy to leave tbter work except on
days when wet weather prevents their
attending to the farm work, the attendance at the market yesterday was
somen hat smaller than usual. There
was, however, nothing slack about the
demand and everything offered found
a ready sale. There was also a good
auction sale on the square. The prices,
as is usual for several weeks at this
time of the year, still remained practically unchanged.
The only noticeable difference In the
buying is that a iendency towards
pass'ng up the older fowl is being
felt, and as aconsequence,  this class
Most Nearly Perfect Vacuum.
It was  Professor Dewnr's achieve- !
ment in liquefying hydrogen that led
to the discovery of an easy method of
cl'iaiiiiiiig an almost jierfect vacuum,
nnd that In a single minute.   When a |
glass tube filled with air and closed I
nt one end has its open end dipped Into
a cup of liquid hydrogen. IIkj Intense
cold conden.es the air Into a kind of
snow that settles to the bottom.    If,
then, the upper part of the tube, from j.
Which the solidified nir has fallen, ls J
removed by heating and cooling it off ,
It becomes a vacuum chamber so fret, i
from air that it is difficult to force nn
electric current through it.���New York j

His Old Le-tters.
A Wall street business man showed
n visitor a bundle of old letters that
he was taking home from his office to
burn in his furnace. "I wasn't always
so particular about these useless business It. tters," he said, "until I learned
that the women cleaners were sorting
them out of the wastebaskets and sell
of bird sold down to $8.00 per dozen, j |ng them to cerraln firms which make I
with a promise of falling still lower,    a business of furnishing lists of names i
The younger birds, on the other hand, j for various purposes, mostly to speeu-
bhow more inclination'to increase than
decrease in price, although no change
has yet taken place.
The amount of meat brought to the
market was rather short, especially
in veal, pork alone being plentiful,
that meat, as tbe warm weather advance, failing to meet with as large
a demand ,as in tlie cooler weather.
The siands of the market gardeners
and florists were heavily stocked with
young vegetable plants. These found
a ready market. Flowers, cut and in
pot, were plentiful aud in good demand.
The following are tlie prices that
ruled during Ilie day:
Beef, hind quarters 8c to 9c, fore-
quarters, (t'/z to Tc; mutton 13c to
1 .c; veal, medium He large 8c to 9c;
pork, S'/k; eggs, retail 25c, wholesale
22c; butter, retail 40c; fowl, $8.50
per dozen; chickens, $fi.50 to $8 per
dozen; ducks, $11 to $12; apples, retail $1.25 to $2.00 per box, wholesale
$1:25 to $1.50 per box; spuds, $18 to
?20 per ton; turnips, 75c per sack.

that I owed it to my clients to protect
them from the nuisance that follows
getting one's name on a mailing list."���

Mark  Twain  on   His  Own
For Veracity.
I am used to having my statements I
discounted. My mother began it before
I Was seven years old.  Yet nil through '
oiy life my fncts have had a substratum of truth, nml therefoue they were I
mot without preclousntjss.  Any person I
who la familiar with me knows how to
Strike my average and therefore knows ',
how to get at the jewel of any fact of
mine and dig It out of its blue clay I
matrix.   My  mother knew  thut  art. !
When I was seven or eight or ten or i
(twelve years old-along there-a neigh- '
Jfsr mild to her:
*T)o you ever believe anything that '
that boy says?"
-My mother said:
"Ele ls the wellspring of truth, but '
-you-.ain't bring up the whole well with
one Imeket." And she added: "I know '���
his  average,   therefore   he   never de-
carves me.  I discount film 30 per cent j
i"or embroidery, and  what is left is
perfect and priceless truth without a j
Haw in It anywhere."���Mark Twain's '

TUPPER AND VANCOUVER TORIES
Columbia Conservative'Association is
naturally   excltiag   a   good   deal   of
notice tnroiighout   the   Dominion.    It
was inspired by the reluctance of the
Vancouver Conservatives    to    second
the   ambition   of   Sir   Charles   thei
younger to  be tlie  Conservative candidate in Vancouver,    lie has already
heen placed in    nomination    by    the
Conservatives of Pictou, N. S.;  but is
leal on capturing a  second  nomination.    Doubtless Sir  Charles  Hlb.bert
would  like to   consider    himself    a :
political Colossus, striding the    continent with one foot on the   Pacific
and the other on the Atlantic.    The
unwillingness of the  Vancouver Con- ���
servatlves to fall in with a scheme so i
agreealble   to  Tupperian  self-conceit,
i.s highly displeasing to the head    of
the  family.    Sir  Charles  has    there- j
fore undertaken to instruct Mr. 'Bar- !
mud, the President    of   the   British
Columbia Conservatives in the carter j
of Prince Charlie, doubtless in the ex- j
pectatlon that the enormity   of   the !
offence of the Vancouvc/ Tories will
i_.--.reby be made plain.
Sir Charles    informs    Mr. Barnard
that he "reluctantly consented, in the |
interests of the party," to his son entering  Parliament  in  1S82,  "although :
I felt he was making a great personal
sacrifice."     Then,  after  long service, |
Sir Charles llibliert was obliged to re- j
tire, and "for the sake of his "family"
to devote himself to his    profession.
Presently, however, -while Sir Charles
was absent from Canada, Sir Charles
Hlbbert was again "induced  to yield
to persuasion" of the people of Pictou,
and did so, although ho   was    again
"mailing  a great .personal   sacrifice,"
i
and  was  again  backed    up    by    Sir '
iC__ar.es out of regard for "the best in- i
���terests of the country." And the proud
old father adds that the announcement
Ot his son's decision  "to devote    nis
energies to secure the return of the ���
Conservative   party   to   power,   has !
given new life to Its friends all over
Canada."      Vancouver   Conservatives
being, In  face of all  tliis. indisposed
to "Strengthen his hands In lighting
their battle," Sir Charles    wants   to
_mow "whether the future of ihe Con- !
servative party is to be sacrificed by .
machine dictators '.'"
Sad to say Mr. Barnard failed to
melt at this moving and novel recital
of self-abnegation and self-sacrifice
���on the part of Ufa Tuppers; and re-
plled with a polite note, intimating
that, the matter was in the hands of
tlie Conservatives of Vancouver��� the
"machine dictators" referred to in
Sir Charles' Utter���where it had better be left. Tims the matter stands;
but It will doubtless have an interesting sequeL���Free Press, Winnipeg.

l'i. Canada, .New Zealand and Australia want the service; and the proposal has certainly been received with
much sympathy in the mother country.

THE  WHY OK  IT.
Speaking in tendon a few days ago
Lord Strathcona summi d up the main
reasons for the All-Red transportation
system, As the opinion of a non-par-
t*_*aa official ihniiiiighly familiar with
Imperial affairs and pai'Ucultfrly well
-flfc'-iiied on Canadian matters, the
B -'.'i unary is worthy of attention.
i    The.service would Improve  the
������ cru'inniiiieaiion  between    the   United
Kingdom   and   Cartada,   and   enable
mails and passengers to be conveyed
between   tjie   two   countries   more
*s.i" uiKf/j ri��an at present
1. It would draw a certain portion
���ol Canadian travel, wbii-h now passes ,
.by way of New York, back to its pn>
Sk.t channel, and by its geographical
advantages, and its quicker service to
the United States secure many Ann H-
i.an passengers nnd some of the mail
traffic to western points.
'!. It would provide a faster service
than at present to New Zealand and
Australia, saving at least ten days to
the former and two days to the latter.
1. It would utilize an alternative
route to the Fast, possessing natural
advantages which have not been properly utilized.
5.     it     would     strengthen    Great
Britain's position in tho Atlantic, and
furnish  additional  armed  cruisers  to
aid in keeping the route open in time
��� >f war.
('.. It would assist In giving Great
llrllain the control of the PadflO
trade, which mny pass out of our
bands if the route is not utilized.

Bremerton, May S.���A fight for a
gas franchise in Bremerton is ibeing
waged by two promoters of Seattle.
'Ihe city council has both propositions
under consideration and an interesting
meeting is expected when the two
franchises come up for final action.
Oscar Foote, of Seattle, asked for a
franchise a week or two ago, offering
to furnish Illuminating gas at ??3W a
1000 feet and $J.25 for industrial purposes. Before final action was taken
on his offer Ezra Norman, of Seattle,
asked for a franchise, offering to supply gas at $1.35.
At last night's meeting of the coun.
j cil final consideration of the two
I franchises was postponed .and the ap-
I plicants were ordered to show that
I they have capita, sufficient to carry
| out their obligations in the franchises.
