and tnlk infurance in a serious way, and I am sure it will mean
money to both of us.
I have been writing insurance here for ten yers now, and the
companies I reoresent are all reliable Canadian companies which
need no eulogies as their records are a splendid evidence of the
business   methods   and   prompt payment  of  losses.
I can save you money on your premiums if you give mi a
chance, and at the same time will be making a fair profit myself.
Let me quote you a rate on  your old  and  new business.

9 foi*..- the catastrophe   attention   was
V *
O called  to the danger, but apparently
n no effort  bad  been made to keep th"
a tire within bounds.    Having described
g the helpless condition of a town surrounded  by  burning  forests  be  went
! mi to say that action is wanted and
necessary  to    prevent    and    suppress
fores'   tires.    Many in the convention
know   that  the future of   their   cities
iand towns depends on the manner in
I which those In authority deal with the
j subject.    "We   know  that about  four
'months of  each   year  are dangerous.
iand during that time the dry weather
I aids  In  distributing the lire.    At  that
time the railway locomotive is spreading  sparks  along the  lines of    com
munieatii.il.  the  pre-emptor clears his
land and bums his brush,  the   prospector, hunt.':-,  camper    and    Indian
makes   .lis   lite   along   the   waterways
and  trails, wherever man treads there
the flre Is lighted  to cook food    and
clear the land.    Few, if any.    restrictions an- placed on men who find their
way  In the forest."
Precautions Easy.
It would in- easy for railway companies to have Are alarms along their
right-of-way. A lead wire, on each
side of the track might be connected
with bell signals at certain stations
and men sent out to extinguish incipient flres. Even through valuable
foresi. lead wire might be strung on
the trees, and .alarm gongs located al
the house of tlie forest warden.
"Copies of the law should tie posted,
the Indian tribes instructed, and the.
city councils in foresi districts empowered to put out fires likely to become dangerous."
"During the four months of the dry
season a number of call firemen should
be hired to attack any flre in the
Q neighborhood of cities or towns. A
��� flre should be extinguished as quickly
q i as possibly, and the only means of
^ stopping the forest fires are by chop-
Q ping and digging trenches. Xo '..rush
O should be burned during warm
O   weather.

Ther,. i.  something striking and particularly pleasing about the   dignified
phraseoli gy of this despatch, and one
cannot    help    being    struck    by    the
beauty of the language and the sentiments expressed in  the latter   part,
particularly   when   it   is   remembered
thai the writer commenced his car., r
as a great colonist and clever administrator in a modest way as a boy of

To this came the reply of the sec-

Pioneer's Reminiscences.
"I wus the first settlor in the city
of New Westminster," exclaimed our
venerable townsman, W. J. Armstrong, to -i Dally News man, with a
ring of pride in his voice.
���Yes, I came here lu March, 1858,
and put up the first house in the
brand new city of Queensborough���
that was the first name of the city���
and 1 started the first store. On July
10th last 1 had been flfty years in
B. C, and ln March next 1 ahull hive
teen flfty years in New Westminster.
I celebrated my eighty-second birthday on Oct. 31st."
The News man congratulated Mr.
Armstrong on his ripened years and
sought some treasures of his memory.
"I hal at tirst settle 1 at Derby���
that was the name of Langley then���
which was. the old Hudson's Bay fort
and capital, but hearing a rumor that
Col. Moody had condemned this position and recommended Queenpbor-
ough .ts the townsite, 1 camet down
the river and had a look round the
proposed new capital. That was in
February, 1858, and 1 can tell you of
a most singular Incident that attended our journey. We were returning
to Derby In a small row boat about
ten or twelve feet long, and it commenced to sno-w Irnmedlately we
pushed off. In a few moments the
snow came down In a perfect cloud,
and was so dense that on? could not

'hos,.  .   ;       lays,  Mr,  Armstrong?"
"Yes. Bul.. . ��as io cenu. per
pound; potatoes, two to Bve cenl -
pound; eggs, 7". cents upwards pei
dozen. 1 have known eggs to reach
$3 per dozen. Then was a man nam
ed Benni tt. who lived In the town.
and he used to say his half dozen or
so of Howls kepi Mm comfortablj
through the summer. Of course, thes.
prices were not so very high wheu
it is considered that the poulation
was small ami supplies difficult and
costly  to obtain."
"Were ther. not some very large
trees on the  townsite?"
"Yes. Very large some of them
were and they took some moving!
I remember one obstinate old stump
wiiich stood about where Dr. Drew's
house now is, on Sixth street. This
had been fired more than once, but
still it stood and eventually the Methodists, who put up their first church
near by. hung their service bell in
it."'
As the Xews man w.as aboul to
I leave, Mr. Armstrong added: "British
! Columbia has gone ahead wonderfully
since the times we have been talking
j about, und I am sure she will go ahead
I still   faster  In  lhe  future."
An Old  Sapper's Story.
"Yes, l am one of the old sappers
lhat   came  out   in  '58,"    said    Henry
Bruce when  a   News  iii-iii     ran    him
| down a day  or two ago.
"There were twelve of us, who came
join  with Captain ('.rant.    Royal    engineers, und bis  wife and  family    iu
the old paddle steamer   Atrato.    We
saii.-d from Southampton and had    a
good passage to St. Thomas, West indies.   Then we went on to Colon and
from   here   to   Panama.    We   crossed
then   to   S;in   Francisco   and   sailed
thence to Portland and so to Victoria.
From there   we  came    on    to    Derby
(Langley)   by  the old   Hudson's  Baj
boat   Heaver.    This  was in  November,
lv".*..  and  we  lived  in  a small   vessel
moored  In  the   riv. r   until   some     ai
racks were completed In the following
.March.    Other  men came before and!
after us and  we    had    a  fine    lol    of X
officers, Captains Grant    und    Luard, Q
Lieutenants   rainier     and     Lemprlere O
und Dr. Siddall.    We came, out under In
Colonel Moody lo colonize British C'o-|q
lumbia and   I  think we    did  It.    The
British government  treated    us    well j
too.    Wo hud  plenty    of   good    food,
good pay and on dlsbandment in 1863
each man received    a   grant    of  160
acres of land.    I took a quarter s c-
tion at Musquam which l sold      ime
years ac;o for a price that look,; ridicu- j
lous by the side of the figures paid for ;
land nowadays."
"What was New Westminster like
when you  lirst  came here?"
"Oh, a dense mass of forest, nothing
bin great trees, and for ,u while we
had  a pretty  hard  task    and    a    dull
lime..    But   we soon cleaned up a tine
town  site and  then  things  began    to
move,    One ot the first public buildings put  up was the mint.    This waslQ
a wood.ui structure   that    stood   just|n
a out between lhe presenl  posl officelj
and  citj   hall.    Captain  Gossett,  U.I--..JS,
'was ma ter of the mint.    He gol  an
old   planl    up    Irom    San
vhlch   .' r ainl;    did   si i Ike     a     :��� iv

j out a I'm.' II irary with us and on our
disbandhienl ibis was pre enti i to the

the books.   The authorities were   a;i
I proa.died ami the old mini secured  is
a home for ihesfe.   I mad., tho Bttlngs
into book shelves."
In a talk about  some    of    the    old
buildings Henry Bruce remarked upon
lhe first   Holy Trinity  church  having
been a small  wooden  building,  reared
among stumps, but "it had a tin., rector
in the person of the presenl Bishop of
Nowich, then a young man.    He lived
in  a   little   log   hut   near the  chinch."
"There is an Interesting Btory about
the bells of Holj  Trinity," remarked
Henry Bruce.   "Miss (now Lady) Bur-
deit  Coutts sent  oui  a  flne peal   of
bells  for  the  church,  bui   these were
i appropriated   by   lhe   Victoria   people
I when  they   were  landed    (here.    Mr.
Sheepshanks made   an    Inve tlgatlon

auxiliary  to  the  spiritual and social
work of lhe church.
In 1V..4 St. Barnabas parish was
constituted, a church being suilt shortly afterwards.
The  New  Westminster  Bells.
The following interesting account of
the cathedral bells, the sonorous
chimes nf which formerly pave pleasure to so many, it, given iu the Church
Record Of November, 1_!'S:
These bells were cast iii London
in i s��; i and were a presenl from
Baroness Burdett Coutts to the lirst
Bishop of litiiish Columbia for his
cathedral. The Inscription on them
runs "The Cathedral of St. Stephen,
New Westminster," and this inscription caused quite a little stir when
the ! . Us Wi re landed at Victoria; for
the cathedral of the dioc se was at
Victoria, there being no diocese of
New Wi stminster In those days. Vic
toria tin refore claimed the bells because of the word "Cathedral"; New
Westminster, however, finally obtained them because the name of thai
citj was on them. Had there b ��� ti a
Church of St. Stephi n al either citj
thai mighl have settled the r-uestion,
but ueiib. r Chrisl church nor Hoi;
Trinity wus the Church ol St. Stephe
As .a  matter  of  fact,  however, tii
190o
were eight in number. Tbe weight of
the tenor bell was 21)12 pounds, being
700 pounds heavier than the tin., tenor
bell of the peal of St. Johns. N.H.,
while the total weight of the peal was
11,536 pounds. They were in the bey
of D, and the approximate cosi was
��1000. lt is said 'hat the origin of
the. gift bells lay in a conversation between Bishop Hills and Baroness Dur-
, dett   Coutts.     She   was    telling     him
about a new peal of bells thai she had
I
had cast for a church in Westminster
'and he answered by saying there was
also a New Westminster in his diocese
! whicli had not so much as a bell,
whereupon she offered him a similai
peal. In confirmation of this we find
that Mears .*v- Stainbanls cast a peal ...
IS50 of thi same weight aad numb ���
as the New Wi stmin ter ��� lis for the
Church ul St. Stephi n, Westminster.

thi in to New Westminster. Thej do
not seem to have been bun.; until the
new Church of Holy Trinitj was
erected in 18G5, but from this time till
;; out InTT lh. bells were in position
In a wooden bell tower und week bj
we. Ic, as well as on all festal occasions the chimes of the most beautiful
peal of eight hells west of New York
\v. iv hoard. At last some wise man
pronounced the tower was unsafe and
there was no one wise enough to suggest making ii safe until a permanent
structure could be erected, and shortly
before the arrival of Bishop Silliioe
into this new dio.-ese of New Westminster lhe bells were taken down,
and an effort made to collect money
sufficient tor a stone bell tower. Ala' '.
the effort never wholly succeeded; a
tower was begun and over $40110 sunk
in it, but it never reached a height
sufficient lo banc; even u single bell.
The lust   time that the  hells were
in British Columbia in lsTI In December of which year a few enthusiastic
members formed a church in Victoria.
The second church organized in the
province was thai in Xew Westminster, lour years later. The early
meel ings v..-re hi Id ait. rnati ly in the
homes of the modest congregation and
a Sal.baih    school    conducte i   in    a
i rented hull. Only seldom did a
Baptist preacliei- happen to pass
through the city and address the little
church, but eventually arrangements
were made for the pastor of the Victoria church lo conduct a monthly service, but this soon terminated and for
la time public services were allowed
to cease.    As the result  of an  appeal
