Wk direct attention to the new
advertisement in this issue of A.

merchant of Westminster, Mr.

A dispatch from, Ottawa states
that tho Dominion Government has
decided to reduce the price of land
to actual settlers in the Yale and
Westminster districts to one dollar
per acrpr This is proper, and Messrs
Corbould and Mara are to be congratulated on the success of their
efforts jn this matter.
Ml«s Phcsbe Bond has gone; to
spend a few weeks with the family
of Mr, Evans in Blaine, Miss
Evans had been visiting here, and
returned home for the 4th July,
and on the following Monday their
house and contents were destroyed
by fire. In the confusion Mrs.
Evans fell down stairs and broke
her ankle, Miss Bond has gone
over to act the part of good Samaritan towards her friends,
James Hamilton, of Port Kells,
who was wpll known here, having
taken part in several entertainments in the vicinity, was drowned
last Saturday afternoon at Pitt
Meadows, He had been working
for the B, C- Dyking and Drainage
Co., and on Saturday he and a
friend started to go over to Port
Kells to spend Sunday at hnome, In
shoving away from the dyke the
canoe upset and both men were
thrown into the water. Mr.
Hamilton could not swim and was
drowned, The body was recovered
shortly afterwards, Deceased had
been in the Province about seven
years, and leaves a widow and two
children.       	
The committee appointed to inquire into the practicability of arranging a milk separating station
here lo HUpply cream to the Delta
creamery, met on Saturday evening
us agreed upon. It was found that
no more than rive ranchers, representing 50 cows, could be induced
to combine for a start, others preferring to hold back until they had
better assurance of the scheme
working advantageously. As 100
cows would be needed, according to
the estimate, to make the station a
success, it is not likely that any
further steps will be taken here at
this time. We are informed a number of Mud Bay settlers have decided to join with the Creamery.
It is highly probable that measures
will be taken here after harvest to
ensure some means of manipulating the milk product next season.
By noting the advertisements in
this puppr from time to time the
peoplo of Surrey can learn at n
glance (ho business house's in Westminster'that are making efforts; for
tlio (.rndo of this section of tho Province,' Those aro tbo houses to
deal with, for depend upon it the
liiiin wljo does not consider your
trade worth looking after will have
no advantages to offer you. Tho
trade of Surrey is by' all odds the
most important rural trado that
goos to Westminster, Surrey Timks
goes into almost every houso in the
municipality, and the merchant
who fails to use it to roach tho people lacks business capacity.
A NUMBER of Westminster peoplo
aro under canvas at Blackie's Spit-
on Mud Hay for a summer outing.
This is'tho first time that the Spit
has hopn brought into requisition
as a resort for pity familips, and it
is sure to grow in favor. Thpre is
a fine beach, splendid bathing facilities and delightful groves of
wild apple trees. The Nicomekl
and Serpentine rivers have their
mouths there and add variety to
the landscape besides offering entertainment to those who take
pleasure in angling.

The people of this vicinity, if we
may judge from a meeting recently
held, are determined to get a trunk

movement is much to bp commended as the distance of road required
to be built falls short of three

A Street Cgr Collision Neap Toronto.
Toronto, July 15.—On Saturday
afternoon a car of the Toronto pipe-
trie sprvicp, with a trailer attached,
started with a joyous load of the
pupils of thp SuckviUo street Mission Hall, accompanied by their
teachprs, bpnt on having a nierry
outing at Victoria park, op the
lake about seven miles east of the
city. On approaching Soarboro
Junction, motorinun Graham was
horrified to see Lalla Rookc, the
Scurhoro oar, coming down a
steep grade at a terrible rate. He
at once reversed his motor, but not
in time to prevpnt a fearful crush ;
both cars wero broken into kindling
wood, and the road was covered
with bleeding philrdpn, and their
cries for hplp were hpartrending.
Doctors wore quickly on thp spot,
and two lads, Stewart andGraham,
removed to thp hospital, Ihe former
dying almost Immediately on reaching thp institution. The children
were taken into npighboring houses
and received prompt medical attention, and were nearly all removed in ft few hours to their homes,
and it is confidpntly hoped that no
further deaths will result. When
the first news of the accident was
received in the pity the most intense excitement prevailed, and a
special squad of police had to tip
sent to the general hospital to prevent thp crowd forcing their way
in to ascertain who were injured.
A number of bicycle riders happened to lie passing along the road at
the time of tho accident, and thoy
did good service in riding for doctors and giving information to the
police and taking messages to the
parents of the little sufferers.
Frank Townsend, aged 13, has
his left log broken and his right
cut, and his condition is serious.
Miss Nettie Lamb is suffering from
internal injuries and it is feared
that she cannot recover. Motor-
man W, J. Graham has both legs
broken below the knee and a'double amputation will be required.
Con Northam has injuries about
the head und face, and R. H. Dun,
accountant of thp Toronto type
foundery, is suffering from internal

Murdering tha Innocents,
Toronto, July 15.—This afternoon, the long and vigilant search
of Detective Seyer, of Philadelphia,
for proof of the guilt of H. H. Holmes, insurance swindler, now under sentence for fraud ut Philadelphia, was rewarded. In the
cellar of a vacant house in St. Vincent street, the detective found the
two dead bodies of the Pietzel
children, who the detective asserts,
were done (o death by Holmes, or
through his instrumentality, in
order to secure insurance money.
Mr. Neudell, clerk in the Education
Department, to-day recognised a
photograph of Holmes us the man
who rented the cottage. He only
had it a few days, but long enough
to kill and bury the children. The
little girls were stark naked and
were buried without n collin of ony
kind. The house was searched
and the cellar last of all. Here
the ground was dug up and presently the bare shoulder and arm
of a little body were discovered.
Then the whole body came into
view, and under it another one
was found. No truces of wounds
were found, nnd it is thought that
Holmes decoyed them into the
trunk under some   pretext   and
took them to the houso. Then gas
was Inserted by means of a pipe
through a small hole. The trunk,
with u hole in it, nearly oovered
ovor wilh a strap tacked down. 11a.-
been found in one of Holmes'
mums. No trace of the other boy,
Howard, a bid of eight years, bus
been found, but he is thought to be
undoubtedly (load. The bouse bus
been taken possession of by Iho
police.
Toronto, July 18,—The finding
of the corpses of the two children of
Pictezol proves conclusively what
has long iieen suspected, that Holmes is a 'multifarious murderer,
and leaves no doubt that, in addition to the murder of these two
children, hp has also killed Howard
Piptezel, a younger brother of the
two victims, their father, li. K.
Piptezel, Annie Williams, and Minnie Williams, six in all. The
bodies of the two children were removed to the morgue this morning.
Coroner Johnston opened an inquest thispvening, and ndjourned
it for u few days. Drs. Caven,
and R. B. Orr, assisted by several
other specialists, will make a post
mortem examination of the remains and will try to discover by
what means the children came to
their dpaths. Efforts will be made
at once to extradite Holmes, and
he will bp given tlio benefit of Canadian justice.
Toronto, July 17.—The inquest
was continued to-night on the
body of Alicp Pietzel, whose remains were found in the cellar ol
Np. IB St. Vincent street. Detective Geypr, of Philadelphia, was
thp first witness examined. He
gave a succjnet history of the case.
Geo Dennis, nigl|t clerk of the
Palmer House, stated that by request of IJolmes hp went to meet
the train from Detroit, and took
the two I'ietzel girls to the Albion Hotel, where he left them
The bookkeeper of the Albion
stated that the children stayed
from the 16th to the 25th ol October. Mrs. \ui|i.'ll, who owned the
house, 1(! St. Vincpnt street, testified thut u mini, whom she identified by his photograph as Holmes,
hud rented the house and paid
one month's rent in advance.
Mr. Ryves, who resides at 18 St.
Vincent street, wid thai Holme.-,
on onp occasion, borrowed u spade,
saying that he wanted to bury ■
supply of potatoes in the cellar.
The inquest then adjourned until
to-morrow!' An autopsy ha. not
yet been performed on the bodies,
Private advices received here
from Philadelphia say that H. 11.
Holmes has invented u clever ru^e
to prevent hi. being tried before ■
Canadian jury. He intends to plead
guilty to the charge of murdering
Howard Pietzel in Detroit. As
there is no capital punishment law
in Michigan, Holmes' sentence in
that State would prevent his l*ing
extradited to stand the charge or
murdering the Pietzel children in
Toronto, and by this means he will
pscapp tlie gallows.
Victoria, July 15. —A. W, Presley, of Chilliwack, wanted in connection with the alleged conspiracy
to burn down his own store, was
arrested here yesterday, on the arrival of Ihe \anaimn train, bvCon-
slubles McKcnnu, nnd Wallls,
Thp police have been on the lookout for him, m>, after his flight
from homo, he was known io huve

his arrest very hard, and, at Ihe
police headquarters, tried to turn
a revolver, which was in his coat

him, but he threatened hp would
kill himself yet. He will bp held
to await the warrant from Chilliwack.
Chilliwack, July 18.—A. W.

when the ollicer's back was turned

there was no strong undercurrent,

CHOLERA IN 1894.
Ilewtan to llellrve Thut We Will Have to
<Biu.nl Anultint tlm Plague This Year.
For over two years the Asiatic cholera
bus been epidemic in western Russia,
hut as wu havo hnd reports of the subsidence of its ravages during tho winter months there was hope that there
might not boa incurrence, this spring of
the unhappy experiences of thnt seuson
in 180a and I81K). Wo regret-that the
dispatches at hand aro unfavorable.
There huvo been violent outbreaks of
the disease during the past week at a
number of the populouj centers of the
western provinces, ono of tho most violent of them as fur west as the city of
Warsaw, and from that place both tier-
many and Austria ure again directly
menaced.
There is reason, therefore, to fear
that New Vork will have to be on the
guard tor yet another year, and that
thero will he need for tbo utmost vigilance on the part of the officers of our
quarantine service. Wo do not doubt
the ability of these officers to maintain
tho safety of the city.
It is to hu hoped that tbe European
governments represented in tbe international sanitary commission which has
held n conference in Paris will provide
for tho prompt execution of those defensive measures which have met with
tho approval of the delegates. This authoritative commission was organized
for the express purpose of preparing an
unticholera programme acceptable to tbe
leading powers of the world, and It will
be a public shamo if the recommendations it has mado this year shall be neglected, as wero those mado at its session
of last year.—New York Sun.
Torture In .Spain.
A new form of torturo has been devised in Spain which is said to quite
transcend any of the terrible machines
formerly employed by tbo inquisition.
It bus, however, bad the result of extracting complete confessions from all
tbe anarchists guilty of bomb throwing.
As soon as arrested Codiua, Ccrczuelo
and their companions wero put on a
diet of salt codfish and bread, without
water. After several days of this treatment they wero led before tbe jugo
d'Instruction. On tho judge's desk
stood a hottto of water and a glaBS.
Each prisoner instiuYtivoIy threw him-
self against his guards in a vain attempt to reach tho water. Tho judge
promised twocaraffea of water if the
prisoner would confess, but threatened
hiin with a contlnunnco of the codfish
diet If ho remained intractable. Not
one pnssed tho ordeal.—Madrid Correspondent.
Mount Blanc In Winter.
The Mont Blanc observatory is undergoing its presumably worst season,
and tho moat Interesting news of the
kind during the coming spring will be
tho account of how its occupants passed
tbe winter and what observations they
were enabled to make. But It Is not
expected that much can be dono in
winter, except in connection with meteorology, and wo must look for whatever discoveries are to come through tho
advantages of high altitudes to the
South American and California observatories.—English Mechanic.

been down lu tbe cast end while you have
been away."
"Not alone, I hope?"
"Oh, no, dear. No. Not alone," Mrs. Westerlleld laughed. "I bud some one to accompany me."
"I 'iu glad of that. Von can't be too careful."
"That's whnt I thought. Did your speech
go really well ut tbecougress!' I bought up
all tbe pnpers that hnd reports about it. It
seems to me, mister, that If I dou't hustle
you'll get more talked about than I."
"I liketokeepasnearyouas I can, dear."

At which challenge Westerlleld of course

kissed her ngnin
In his uh.seiitmlnded way, Westerlleld
went round to the Koyal institution after
dinner without asking Kruiyntrude about
her appointment. Tbe lecturer did not appear, and be came back. On the table of
his study wan a card.
"I am going to Hammersmith with Lieutenant Kincham.   Back late."
Ur. Westerlleld went on with the novel

"Who tbe devil la Lieutenant FiucbamF"
be cried.
There was no one In tbe room to answer.
He pressed the bell.
"Marial"
"Yes, sir."
"Do you know"—he picked up tbe card—
"do you know any one named Lieutenant
Finch am?"
Maria repressed a broad smile with difficulty.
"Oh, yes, sir," Mariaglggled, and coughed
a little to pass it off. "Yes, sir, quite well.
Called here twoor three times since you've
been away."
"To see your mistress*"
"Yes, sir. They had dinner together one

"Is—Is Lieutenant Fincham young?"
"Mejuni uge, sir. Not what I should call

tbe army, as cook says, are perfect bird
frighteners. Cook used to have a young
man In the grenadiers, and he told cook a
rare joke about oue of 'em. It appears"—
"You needn't wait, Maria." He spoke
with such unexpected decision that tbe
maid quite started. "If your mlstressoomes
In, ask her to wait for me."
"Very good, sir."
"One moment, Maria. Do you happen
to know to what address your mlstreoabas
gonel1"
"Oh, yes, sir.   1 know."
"(Jive ft to meat onre," be said sternly.
"Come, now, let me have no prevarication. This is a matter of nearly life and
death."
"(inw bless my soull" said Maria, with a
confused, flurried manner. "Fancy It coming to thisl"
"Give me the address, I say."
Marin gave the address, and Dr. Wester-
field took It down. Tbe maid fetched bis
coal and hut.
"1 am going out, Carey." Dr. Wester
field wns stopped at tbe door by a friend.
"I urn JiiHt off to Hammersmith to make
some Inquiries."
"I'll come with you," said Mr. Carey.
"I've only just finished work ut the Temple, and I was calliug to ask when you
were expected borne. I know Mrs. Westerlleld sees scarcely anybody while you are
awuy."
"Scarcely anybody."
"I liked her last book," went on Mr.
Carey.   "What will tbe next be like?"
"It ought to be very lively," said We*
terfleld as calmly ns he could. "She seems
to be taking a lot of trouble over It."
He caught sight of hts reflection In a mirror tn the hull. We are not all of a military uppenrsnee, and It occurred swiftly to
Westerlleld that he possessed distinctly a
civilian style of features.
As the hansom went along Hammer-
smith way Westerlleld thought out the
flr~L speech to be addressed to bis errant
wife.
"My wife baagone out," said W«sterfleR
leaning over tbo splashboard, "on some
business, nnd"—
"Sho Is u done* of a ono to work," said
Mr. Carey. "Lust time I met hor aho cross
examined muou certain potutHuf law, and
1 found at the ond that I had told her
nearly all 1 knew."
"The Information Is sure to he useful to
her," suld the other grimly. "1 want to
ask you something, If you wnnt u separation from your wife, how would you set
about it?"
"As I'm not married," snid Mr. Curey,
looking at the Whito ash of his cigar, "there
Is no Immediate necessity for me to get a
divorce,"
"I don't mean yon In particular," said
WeHtcrih'ld, with 80U10 impatience, "I
moan anybody, Supposing I wanted to get
rid of my partner,"
''It's a very odd thing, old chap," said
Mr, Carey, "but tbat Is precisely thu question, word for word, that Mrs. Westerlleld
asked me nut long since."
"A very natural Inquiry on her part,"
"Hut whnt Iii the world can you wnnt to
know il for? You're uot writing u romance,
are you?"
"Nu. There's no romance on my shin of
the game, Carey,   It's nil dend earnest."
"Hud a row?"
"Not yet.   doing lo have one, though,"
"NoilBOnsot" erli-il Mr. Cnrey Joyously.
"I'll bet you a hulf sovereign you dun't,"
"I haven't hnd n bet since I left school,"
suld WcHtt-rflchl, "hot I'll take that."
"Wlih young married people," snid Mr.
Carey wisely, "it is bo easy for little disputes to create a great deal of trouble,
Now, if there's anything of that kind,
Westerlleld, lake my advice nml givewny,"
"I'll givo anything else," snid Wester-
Held, "hut I'll he Imaged If I'll give way,"
"There's no question of hanging," suld
Mr. Cnrey. "It's not it cnpitnl offense. Alt
you've got to do Is to use savolr falre."
"Hero she Is," cried Westerlleld.
His young wife, warmly wrapped In furs,
was hurrying along. She did not look
aside, she did not even glniieoattho lighted
up shop window.
"Let us get out," hiiIiI Mr. Carey, putting
his umbrella up. "And mind, Westerlleld,
nn unnecessary nonsense. I want to win
that half sovereign."
It. appalled Western eld to see how calmly
his wife accepted their sudden nppearaiice.
"I wnnt to get some cigars," snid tho
adroit Mr. Carey. "You two go ou. I shall
cateli you up."
Thu two tall young people walked on side
by side. The hustle nf busses and passing
tratllc made a serious scene out of the question.
"I'm glnd you hnvecomo down, Arthur,"
she said brightly. "I was goltig to meet
some one, but—but tbey didn't turn up at
the time."
"Anylwdy I know?"
"Oh, no. Oh, dear, no. I shouldn't care
for you two to meet. I'm afraid there
would be n terrible argument."
"Thnt In quite likely," he suld. "lam
afraid there must be some argument as lb
is. I strongly object, Krmyntrude— I very
strongly object to these excursions of yours.
Tbey are uot seemly, they are not discreet,
tbey are not"—
"But I don't go alone," she urged.
"I urn afraid," he answered decidedly,
"that that does not Improve the aspect, so
far as I am concerned."
"My dear Arthur," she said, "you must
please allow mo some liberty."
"I think," he replied sillily, "that I had
better give you all that you want."
"That's what I mean," said Mrs. Wester-
field, with eagerness. "For instance, take
Lieutenant Finchum."
"I will leave tbat for you to do."
"Don't be absurd, dear. Now, there's a
case where by a little assistance I have
been able to get capital stuff for my book."
"Really?" Arthur Westerlleld laughed
wildly. "Of course unything Is justified
bo long as you get 'copy' out of it."
"Almost anything, dear," she corrected
him sedately. "One has, of course, to draw
the line somewhere."
"Is thero any necessity for that? It seems
to me"—
"Now, just look here."
There was a group round a lamppost. A
red banner with lettering upon It stood behind a semicircle of uniformed men and
women. A woman was speaking breathlessly with no stops.
"Ho yes my friends come tonight do not
delay. I know you're all black hearted
sinners"—
" 'Ere," said the crowd remonstratlvely,
"cheese It."
"Ho yes you nre!" (Still in the same
high pitched voice. The speaker pulled her
black bonnet a littlo forward and stuck out
one large foot determinedly.) "Ho yes you
are all black come and be washed come aud
be made whiter than snow once I was a
sinner like yourselves and I went to theaters I did aud I used to go to dawnces"—
"I want to speak to her," said Mrs. Westerlleld, "as soon as she has finished. I told
you, didn't 1, thnt she had been very good
In giving me information. Tbe poor girl
tells me she Is going to be made a captain
soon."
Westerlleld put one band on ber shoulder.
"And her name Is—In Finch"—
"You've guessed it, mister," said Mra.
Westerlleld, with her comic affectation of
a nasal twang. "You've guessed it In once."
"I'll say good night to you two young people," said Mr. Carey. "I've got a man to
meet at 10."
"One moment, Carey."
Westerlleld felt In his pocket and produced a coin and banded It over.
"1 thought you'd lose," said Mr. Carey.—

Divided In Opinion as to tlie Oonrae That
Should Be Taken—Thu I iut Inot uf nn Indian Boy—A Marveloiisly lleuiitllnl Mirage Which Showed tlm Way.
We wero lost. It hud comu to such a
nou that oaoh of us was emphatically positive that thu little Hudson liny company
post wu wished to reach lay In another
ilii'iTiiuu from that in which we were traveling—aud the three sepuratu opinions were
nil different. lOuch of us wereCtrtalll that
his two companions were lost, as we ga/.ed
liboitt us over tlm seemingly limitless snow
(overvii prairieuceau which stretched on till
tides as far ns the eye could reach, yet wit Li
cut one distinguishing landmark.
Wo wore journeying across ouu of the
fireat plains of northWOStUM Canada, the
country whose main Industry Is trapping—
If trapping may be culled an Industry—the
fur land of thu world, ami, lu truth, the
writer felt Its Immensity inorethaii ho had
ever been conscious of It before or hopes
ever to bit again. For four loug days wu
had seen absolutely no sign that even siig-
yesled I lie existence uf 11.1111.    We,uiir dogl
and dog sledge, seemed almost liilliilleslmal
alums upon this vast expanse of rolling,
white robed landscape.
It had become dinioult fur oneof us Americans to feel that a person could ever rouoll a
given polntover I his track less wlldenii'ss by
the successive spans lu I lie com puss of It per-
sun's step, Due of us bail a suspicion that
we hnd passed onr destination upon ono side
or the other. Noone who hns not I ia versed
atraeklcss waste can realise how hard it is
to reckon the distance traveled each day uf a
longtrainp, that n calculation of one's position ntnlghtfull mny bu formed with any degree of exactness.
Wo finally decided thut, each should go
his way when the Journey should again
hu resumed. This plan would most certainly result filially fur tho two who
would bu nimble to reach shelter beforo
the seanly supply of food which would
ho their sharu would become exhausted.
There wns a possibility of meeting with
sumo plain Indians or uf hugging sufficient game for food, hut only a slight
possibility. However, one's self concern
Is strangely blunted by tho biting cold of
this iileak country. None of us was
greatly concerned over tho fearful ehniiees
to hu taken,
Tho ultimatum as to the separation was
reached nt night. In thu morning we
prepared to part company. Kach of us
was to taku a dog along "for a companion," we Americans told ourselves, trying to put the thought from our minds
that the animal might, iu a great extremity, be made uso of in a far less
pleasant personal capacity, llaptiste, thu
young Crce Indian buy who drove for us,
took this mutter with less unpleasant
anticipations. He pinched the buuuchcs
of Shout inga, thu cur becoming his lot,
in an indifferent manner which caused us
to look the other way.
Ilnptlste was a wood Indian, not n
plainsman. Ho bad bad little experience
eveu in the woods, having been boy to one
of the Hudson Ray company's ofllccrs ut
out'of tho larger posts ever since he was
old enough to be of any use. Our skilled
guide with whom we hud started out
had been disabled In a quarrel at a stopping place, aud no .substitute could then
be had, or wo never should havo attempted crossing this great prairie ocean with
the boy.
We wero destined to have more faith
in the instinct of eveu an unskilled wood
Indian lad than we bad. When we hud
actually parted from one auother, each
going bis sepuruto way, nouu of us cared
to display the wavering cownrdicu of u
glance backward. We only turued ngain
In response to a low cull from Ruptiste.
The Cree lad was pointing a mlttened
hand toward the sky iu tho direction be
had taken. 1 am sure tbat I shall never
gaze on any phenomena of nature with
tbo thrill of wonder and satisfaction that
I did upon tbe one to which Raptiste
then called our eager attention.
The sun had just risen. An Infinite silence bud stolen over tbe trackless, wavy
snow expanse about us. The heavens In
the west were one great blaze of yellow
glory, warming tbe glistening crystals of
the frozen laudscape into orange, opal, sea-
shell tints. Tbe inverted plain hung, lined
in dreary, Incandescent emerald, far above
our heads—another, a spirit world! The
patches of sage, poplar uud aspen of the
country about us were minutely reflected
there, though tbey might ho hidden miles
beyond tbe horizon attainable by our vision,
Distance wns annihilated. Tbe pictures
seemed almost unreal. Every feature came
out with tbe photographic minuteness of
detail of the scene upon tho ground glass
of the camera.
We gazed aloft breathlessly and witb
somewhat of the fear that if we spoke the
whole weird panorama would fade away,
as do the ghost forms when verbally addressed, about which we read. We became
motionless, awkwardly capoted statues,
aud doubtless parts of a like reflection to
be seen far above us.
Half a dozen small log buildings and
high bark stages, upon which lay game
and other provisions safe from tho dogs
and wolves, were dimly discernible nt a
point toward which Ruptiste pointed. We
! recognized them quickly as belonging to
the little post which we had left some
months before, and to which we were
wearily returning.
Tbe mirage—ever changing, ever growing clear, then faint again—faded away
Into the clear daylight ot the new day.
But wo knew now thut the littlo Hudson
R.iy company post itself was to be found
directly under the point lu which It had
been so providentially mirrored in the sky,

Jones had played a prominent putt in
tho escape of John Wilkes Month, tho

"It's quite true," admitted Jrmos at

1 explained that 1 wiih sent by Cox. I
was thon piloted to where Booth was,
Ho lay on tho ground wrapped iu a pilo

what people thought of tlio assassination. Ho appunrod to bo proud of what

"I think it wns tho following Tuesday

would toll where Booth wus."
"That's truo." admitted Captain
Williams at tho timo of tho above interview, "nud he would have been General
Jones instead of n discharged employee
from the navy yard if he had given tbo
information."
"I did tho best I could for Booth ond
fierold," continued Jones. "1 did not

my beeping nothing would have tempted mo to betray them. I could havo
placed my bunds on Booth, but honor
and truth woro worth moro to mo than

"At tho expiration of the sixth day I
heard the officers givo orders for the
cavalry to go down iu St. Mary's county; that tho assassins wero there. That
was my chance, and I mado good timo
to whero Booth and Hurold worn concealed. Booth was glad to know that his
time to get Into Virginia had come.
"Tbe night was dark, nnd IJerold and
I lifted Booth on to my horse. Our progress was slow. Wo finally reached my

make the plunge. Tho moment of departure is pnt off and put off, aud when

SECRETARY'S PORTRAITS.
The Limited Art Gallery In the Depart
ment of State at Washington.
The department of state at Washing*
tun has now nn nrt gallery, limited toa
certain class of paintings, of which
there is no superior collection in tbe
world. This collection has been recently
bung with much good taste in one of
tho rooms devoted to tho reception of
the diplomatic corps when any of its
members cull to seo tho secretary.
The collection embraces the oil portraits of every secretary of state, beginning with Thomas Jefferson, down to
and including Thomas F. Bayard.
Some of tho likenesses ure suld to be
most excellent, and u fow are thought
by experts to be wretchedly poor. Mr.
Bayard's is ono of the latter, although
the government paid a handsome sum
to thn artist for her work. All these
portraits were on exhibition ut tbe
World's fair at Chicago and have recently been received nttbe state department. Whero they are now bung visitors cun reudily see them without the
formality of red tape or the granting of
authority by nny of the functionaries of
the department. The collection is a
most valuable one and will soon be in-
creased by portraits of Mr. Blaine, Secretary Foster and later of Secretary
Uresham. A striking fact in the collection was the number of secretaries
who preferred to wear no hirsute adornments. John C. Calhoun was the only
ono prior to Secretary Blaine who wore
whiskers.—Baltimore Sun.

Europe's Buffering Poor*
The suffering among the London poor
this winter is not so great as was expected, says a correspondent. It has
been about an average winter for the
unemployed. There has been only about
a week of severe weather, which fact
has greatly mitigated suffering, London
is now rejoicing In pleasant skies and
springlike air, influences nnder which
the grass has been always green, and
shrubs are now putting out their leaves,
ind trees are beginning to bod.
A very different story comes from
Bastern Europe. In districts in Russia
the winter la so severe that wolves are
unusually fierce. The other day at
Saratoff a peasant woman walking neai
the village was surrounded and devoured by a pack of nine wolves. Another peasant going to market was set
npon by a pack of wolves and torn to
ihreds. Nothing was left of man and
horse but a few bones and tufts of hair.

(()n Monday Mr. paurlor, seeking In
iiinlio some parly gain out of a
question serlouB enough to be held
/roe of party tactics, and himself
too cowardly to offer patriotic advice, moved the following resolution : "That this House regrets (lie
failure of the Government to deal
with the Manitoba sohool question
in a iiiannet demanded by tbe best
interests of Ibe country, nnd  is of
.opinion tbut ibe Ministerial declarations In regard to the question
are calculated to promote a dangerous agitation iniiimg tbe Canadian
people.1'   Upon a division tho resolution  was  rejected, "0 voting for
and 114 against,   This is probably
tho last tbat will  be heard of the
Question in tbe House this sessiop,
hut just  think of tho truckling,
oflice-seeking leader nf tbe Liberal
party, an exposed coward on this
vory question, mouthing bis cant
about what  is "demanded  by the
best interests of the country,"   Tbe
best interests  of tbe cotpitry demand that (lie  Liberal party shall
lend Its power to the (Inveniment
of tho day to  settle once for all by
overwhelming authority a question
that undoubtedly does threaten tbe
peace of tbe country.     But does
any man  believe that that power
will be  forthcoming for that purpose ?   tin the contrary, is it not
absolutely certain that the Liberal
power will bo at all future turns of-
Ibe question  in the same position
(is heretofore, namely, timidly peep-,
ing around corners for party advantage.    Show Mr, Laurier and
his deputies the path that leads to
office, and  little thoy will concern
themselves whether "the best interests of the country" lie in the
same direction,
Undoubtedly the Government is
jn a critical position. The vigorous resolutions passed by Orangemen at various points of celebration on Friday last, though touched
a little no doubt with the enthusiasm of tbe day, show clearly
enough the temper of one set of
ordinary supporters, the retirement
of a French Cabinet .Minister indicates the position of another, while
over all is the restriction contained
in the judgment of the Privy Council, at present a disputed quantity.
That tbe majority of the Canadian
people favor non-interference with
Manitoba will scarce admit of question, and it should be sufficient for
that majority lo know that in the
first test of strength in the Cabinet
their cause won. Outside of the
Ministers no one knows just how
much was won, and the majority: (subject to revision, as to its form,
may   safely  rest it  there in   the by  Ibe  City  Solicitor) the agree-

THK FlUHElt BRIDGli
Tbo lahwl dovolopinents in regard to tho Fraser brldgo are of a
kind to Inspire somo littlo conll-
donco that the work of construction
will be prnceeilod with in Ibe hear
future. It is truo that the wearisome delays and froquont disappointments that havo heretofore
occurred in the prosecution uf the
work have a liiiiilency to throw
doubt upon any fresh nsKimuicos
Ibnl Ibe business is at last in shape
lo be promptly pi ceded with, and
Ibis is especially Ibe ens.i when
llmse  nssiii'iiii'ais nre  based  upon
arrangements in oonnootlon witb
the ohartoi' of Iho B, Life F, V.
Hallway, n ohartor obtained for
speculative purposes and beldal «
pi'loo for some years pnsl. Never-
Ibeless,    tho   unlikely    souiuliiues
happens, and 11 must bo admittod
that the offer now being mado by
.Mr. li in i, l carries a business- air,
On Saturday lusl a public meeting was held iu Weslininstor with
the announced inlention of reaching COnolufionS on bridge mutters.
The meeting was largely attended,
and was taken part in by the ablest
men in (he oily, it was shown to
ibe satisfaction of thp meetjng that
Mr. Rand's London principals were
now willing to undertake the con-
si ruction of bridge and railway
and as an earnest of good faith had
deposited Iho stun of $10(),0(}() in
the Hank of 1!. N. A., to be put up
by Mr. Hand as a forfeit iu case of
failure to carry out any arrangements entered Into with the cities
of Westminster and Vancouver for
the construction of the works men
tioned. Such bping tbe position of
affairs, and the people of Westiiiin
ster having decided to again give
Mr. lli)ml their confidence, there is
no reason why the people on this
side thp river should not have reasonable hopes of the speedy consummation of an undertaking that
tbey have bad in anxious expectation for many yeurs. .Should the
"Hand scheme" again fail, it is
safe to say the public will tolerate
no further dallying, in so far at
least as relates to the bridge bonus
granted from tho public funds of
the Province.
The people south of the river are
not ut all concerned in the interest
Westminster had in view in preferring to give Mr. Rand a bonus
to build a brldgo for the 13. J. & F.
V. Company rather than to incur
all the cost and t|ie city own the
structure ; bnt it is certainly satisfactory that the lines chosen by the
city are those most agreeable to the
country also. Presumably the
bridge arrangement will be an aid
in securing the construction of the
Fraser Valley Railway, and the
mere building of that line will bo
of great benefit to agricultural interests here at this time, to Bay
nothing of the permanent advantages |o the important section of
country to be served by the new
railway. Everything considered,
the prospect is decidedly encouraging, and in the present promise, we
will forget past disappointments
and wish hearty success to the
"Rand scheme."
bors who. are ■ without, doubt most
anxious for Ihirimmediiiloconstruction of the bridge., are by no moans
pleased with the position Iho business has got into, Thoy eithor
buvo no faith in Mr. Rand's ability
to carry out tho undertaking, or on
grounds of policy they object to
tbo "Rand scheme" of building tbo
bridge, .lust which is not clear
from the newspaper reports. It
would ecrliiinly bn mure satisfactory lo people hero if lliese known
friends of bridge construction woro
in hearty sympathy with the now
arrangement; but in any event the
limit of lime allowed to Mr. Rand
to put tip his deposit is so brief
that Ibe public need nut be loon in
doubt regarding tlie good faith of
Iho transactions now in progress.
Ily resolution Mr. Kami was given
lop days in which to put up his
guarantee of kj'10,000,
Tun British elcclions as far as
yc,t held havo resulted In Iho overwhelming defpat of the Liberals.

' At tbe regular meeting of Westminster City Council on Monday
evening, bridge matters, of course,
comprised tbe principal business.
Acting upon the expressed wish of
the meeting of .Saturday night, the
Council passed the following resolution :

and calls upon the said company
to deposit its guarantee of £H,(H)0

the said agreement, und that this
Council will, us soon us satisfied
that tbe said guarantee has been
deposited, proceed to submit to the

Cyclone in New York.
Now York, July 15.-The first
cvclono in many years struck Now
York and vicinity Saturday afternoon, killing several people ami
wrecking a largo amount of valuable property. Tho aloud whoa
first seen was funnel-shaped and
bung very near tbo ground. At
tho upper pnd was a red spot Unit
appeared more like an incandescent
light than anything else. As it
moved on its course trees were torn
down, telephone, telegraph and
trolley wires demolished and houses
unroofed or totally wrocked. At
Chorryhill, a small village a few
miles from Hackensack, it developed cyclonic fury, attended by the
demolition of thp village and a
number of deaths. Within a minute after the storm broke, twenty-
seven houses, nearly the entire
number in the village, were wrecked. The cyclone made a clear, path
through tbe centre of thp place,
currying everything with it. Houses
were unroofed or thrown down,
trees were uprooted and the crops
in the fields levelled to the grouud.
At the present time jt is known
that five were killed and the injured by scores, many of them it is
believed fatally. Great masses of
wreckage were carried through tbe
air by the gale, adding to the destruction. Among the buildings
wrecked was the Dutch Reformed
Church, a structure recently erected. Three large beams, picked
from the wreck of other buildings
by the wind, woro borne, end on,
against the side of the Church and
they went through the walls like
cannon balls. The depot, standing between the tracks of the New
York and New Jersey Central railway, was demolished. The freight
depot was also wrecked and the
big platform carried several hundred feet from its place. The cyclone wrecked thirty houses at
Woodhaven and a very large school
house there. There were 20 residents of Woodhaven injured by
the cyclone and two deaths. Several people were picked np by the
wind and carried a block or two.
Trees and chimneys sailed through
the air as if they were no heavier
than feathers.

Sun Francisco. July 17.—The
ease witb which the Japanese captured Port Arthur, during the recent war with China, is explained
to some extent by an article In the
Japan Gazette which arrived on
the last steamer. According to
the Gazette, one of the commanders
..f the Chinese forts was a native of |0eivC(1 from Mm retmin(r to the
Japan, who acquired favor In the kindness which her mother showed

Chinamen Employ White Labor.
Says the San Francisco Cull of
July -Ith :
Labor Commissioner Fitzgerald
yesterday received the information
that u largo number of white
women und girls nre being employed by Chinese orchardists in Fresno country. His informant stated
that a short time ago several
Chinese purchased the Mulger
ranch north of Travpr, and up un
til recently used cooley help to
work in tbe orchards und hurvest
the crop.
For some reason, supposed to be
the scarcity of coolpy help, the
Chinese ranch owners this year
are employing white woman and
girls, fhe latter are. engaged in
picking and packing fruit, and, of
course, under the direction and
orders of a Chinese boss. Such a
condition of affairs was predicted
nearly twenty years ago by a number of political economists, who
stated that the day would come
when the white people would
work for the Chinese.
Mr, Fitzgerald will send to Fresno county for a full statement us
to the number of white woman and
girls thus employed by Chinese
and the wages they receive also the
conditions that load to such a
state of affairs.

Story of Chief Justice Dane's Boyhood.
The Perthshire People's Journal
of June 8th has the following
parugraph : "A romantic little
story conies from Blairgowrie.
Some 28 or 2!) years ago, a little
lad appeared in town, hungry and
ragged, He had no friends, and
his pitiful case awoke the sympathy of an old soldier named
Smith und of Mrs Bisset, Well-
meadow. It was found out that he
hud run away from sohool in Surrey. .Mrs. Bisset housed him for
a week or more, rigged him out in
some of her own children's clothes,
and paid his fare hack to Surrey.
The young lad has since developed
into the present Chief Justice of
British Columbia, Mr. Theodore
Davie, who was premier of that
Colony in 1892 and onwards. That
Chief Justice Davie has not forgotten his early adventure in
Blair it. shown by a letter which
Mrs. Bissot's daughter bus just received from
A public school teacher in the
Evening Post, Chicago, says of the
cigarette evil: "In this section of
the country this evil is worse then
the nlcohol habit, for it seems
actually to threaten extermination.
There are babies, two of them only
live years old, who say they huve
been smoking for two yeurs, nnd
the stutement is coroborutcd by
their elder brothers. One of the
tittle ones was a pouting-lipped
cupid but two years ago, now his
tiny face is pinched and wrinkled,
fl.oil bis mouth hangs loose and relaxed, like an old umnV,"
has the appearance of being eminently business-like and to the
point, was carried without a dissenting vote | nevertheless, it was
manifest enough from the general
proceedings that the majority of
the Council, comprising those mem-
they would full short of the Japanese warships. Having betrayed bis adopted bind for tbo bind of
bis birth, this Commander is said
to have appeared before tbo v[q.
torious Japanese generals, acknowledged bis treason to tbe Chinese,
and then committed suicide in their
presence.

Levis, Que., July IH.—For three
days  the  inquest   in   the Craig's
Road   railway  horror    hus   been
going on  here.   All  the evidence
goes to show that McLeod und Perkins, the  engineer  nnd   fireman,
were  asleep  and   went   to  their
death in that manner.     Several
abundantly "evident from the offl-1 heavy actions for  damages have
cial figures published in Japan re-j already been entered against the
garding   the   Japanese   invading Grand   Trunk   Railway   in   the
force. Its total strength wns only
60,970, and of these only 734 were
killed in battle, and 231 died of
thoir wounds. The deaths from
disease increased tho total to 4,110.
A statement of losses by China
would read very differently.
Courts by the victims who were injured. The property loss was
some $150,000, and the damages
will probably exceed that. The railway will, in all, be called upon to
pay nearly .5250,000 for the smash-
up.

Ottawa, July 13.—At the Orange
demonstration, here, yesterday,
Clark Wallace denounced Bishop
Gravel for trying to influnce Ihe
Judicial Committee of the Privy
Council. He also stated his posi.
tion on the Manitoba school .piestion, He said: "For my part;
and I speak under a full sense of
the responsibility of my utterances,
I say frankly and firmly that I
favor the maintenance of non-sectarian schools in Manitoba, and, if
our constitution permitted it, I
would advocate a similar system
throuhout the whole of Canada. I
propose to await events rather than
anticipate those which may never
ooour, Nor do I Intend to be influenced, no matter from what
(piarter. Our duty is to adhere resolutely to the ground of the principle of swerving neither to Ihe
right nor to tbe left, nnd in this I
hope to huve your support, und
that of the great majority of the
people of Canada. (Cheers).
