Every clause  in  the  electric light  by-law has  been  amended  since   the  bill    was      first  introduced   by  Aid.  Nicholson,   and  it  is practically,       a  totally  different  by-law  that   finally  passed the committee stage  last evening, and  is today published  for the  first  time.      During a lengthy  meet-  i/ng  of    the council  last  night  little  else but eloctiic light  was discussed.  Each clause was gone into thoroughly,   and ultimately,  on  a motion by  the Mayor,   seconded   by  Aid.      Malone,   the  by-law   was   adopted     as  amended as a whole.  The by-law will be published in  The Ledger for ten days, and the  people will vote on it on Saturday.  Oct. 7th. Tho council decided to  hold the public-meeting, at-which  one or two of the leading electricians  of the province will be present. to  explain the leading features of -lee.  trie light, on Thursday, Oct. 5th.  The questions of engaging,a man to  superintend thc construction of the  plant should the people vote in favor of the bill, and to make arrangements for the procuring of coal for  the plant and also to find the -best  site availabe on which, the proposed  plant could he erected, were then  brought up by thc Mayor.  Aid. Beveridge could not see the-  advisability of going to this trouble  and expense until the- by-law was  passed by  the people.  Aid. Nicholson favored taking up  these questions at once. He said n<  expense  would  be  incurred,   and      i  the-  ii  getting  to work avoided.  Thc Mayor agreed with Aid. Nicholson,    and      pointed  out that thev  on a motion  by Aid.

MURDERED IN CAR  ON ENGLISH RAILWAY  Mutilated Body of a Girl is Found  in  Merstham Tunnel  near  London  Supposed to Have Been   Killed  While Train was in Motion  and Thrown   from Car  ship said  if the city was to go ahead  il. had got   to be properly lighted.  Aid.   Blair spiritedly  replitid       to  It is understood that if Mr. King  advises the council that this could  be accomplished at  a small  cost.,  an  lhe  city could   be  as-dark as  a dun-  yeon. rather than  be in debt,   for he  was certain   that the installation of  a steam-plant meant debt.  The    Mayor said   there was abso-;  lutt-ly no ground   whatever to think  this  that as far as he was concerned   expert will  be engaged   to see if thc  water  of     the two creeks  together  would be sufficient  to furnisli   (.he required  power.  It  was also decided,   on  a motion  by  Aid.     Bryden,  seconded, by    Aid.  Nicholson,  to instruct the city clerk  London,   Sept.   20.���������-The  Merstham  Tunnel,  of the London and  Southeast  crn  Railway,   whole the brutal murder of Frederick Cold  by Percy Le-  froy,  alias Mapleton,  occurred  June  27th,  1881, has-again been  the scene  of   a mysterious  tragedy,  the details  of which,  so far as ascertained, are  markedly similar to that of a quar-  ter of a century ago,   In the present  case  the   victim  is a young  woman,  Mary Mooney, whose body was   hor-  iibly  mutilated.    A long veil       was  tightly wedged in her moutli and the  police are confident she  was murdered in the compartment of a train on  which     she  was  travelling and her  body thrown from   the   car.  The fact that all the doors of the  train on its arrival at Rod Hill were  closed is considered to prove conclusively that it was not a case of suicide. Miss Mooney left her home  on Sunday, saying she would not be  gone long.  Ohe  by-law  passed  the-people, -  council'would find  a lot of delay'  a loss.     >.n Vancouver, Victoria and  New   Westminster   the  electric  light  was   furnished   by  steam  plants and  those plants   wcre not being operated at a loss.  -   Aid.  Blair��������� I-believe we could get  water power if we tried.  The     Mayor���������Aid.  Blair,  we have  had  one of the most capable men in  the country   to investigate the water proposition  and he says  if would  be an unsnfs investment for the city.  A private .company   which, a year   or  two     ago .made thorough  investigations  say  it  is impossible.   I cannot-  understand  why  it  is that Aldermen  Blair and     Beveridge, after passing  the   by-law,   are   now   offering   objections  to it.     Why is it?  Aid'. Beveridge said he-could not  see where the money to'operate a  steam plant, was coming from. There  was-fuel and five,men to be>paid. for.  At thc public meeting the Mayor  had been    reported  as saying       the  need      not engage    a man  to  act as    city  Wolllcl derive a rcVenue from the  construction  superintendent,., but they   strcet,     [-glits   ,,llt   hp>   the  speaker,  wanted  to know where the money to  could  ascertain the terms of  a capable  man,  and  if   thc by-law passed,  t-hey  could  engage  him   forthwith. In  reference to  the question  of fuel, and  site  for     the  proposed   plant,      thc  council  would  piofil considerably . by  having all  information  on   these subjects  when the time came for awarding the contract.    They could not afford   lo  waste   time. , If  the   people'  voted      for  the-by-law,   it would be  the  duty of  the council   to get "the.  plant   constructed   and   the city  supplied   with  light  without unnecessary���������  delay. -  Aid.     Blair said he was not at all  sere   thai  the   hy-iawwouid   pass  the  public.    ITe had heard  a lot   of   com-J    Other of* the aldermen, in a discus.  plaints. A number of people objected  to steam, and were of thc opinion  that the possibilities of obtaining,  water power had not been properly  looked up! Col. Tracey had said it  might be possible * to store water,  but the council had not gone into  this question'. For his part, he  would   vote  against  the   bv-law     if  that  a steam  plant would be run at j to write  to  a capable electrician and  ascertain his  terms  to supervise  the  construction   of  " tbe     pfarit.    n  the-  event,  always,  of  the  people voting  in     favor of the by-law; also      to  write to the Wellington ,Col'liery Co.  ,to find   out  what  arrangements  they  would" be willing to make for supply  ing   fuel      to   operate   the   proposed  plant and also to ascertain what sites  suitable for the same arc avail-;  able.  Aid.  Bryden,     chairman of       the  street committee, reportedHhal    he  had been unable to discover .'the owners of thc building standing on Gal-i-  crc sfcreet; above First ~A venue.   Nobody locally claimed   it,  but  he had  heard   that  it belonged   to  Mr.  Yar-  wood,   of Nanaimo.   The   people   living  in close proximity  to  the. building desired  it removed,- as,  standm-g  whe.re it     does,  it raised''the insurance rates on the adjoining property.  Aid.   Blair thought  it would  bc   n  good idea to  move the building     to  the Market Sqiiaro and  use it as    a  pound    shop.    Mr.   Blair had  a cold  last, evening,  ond everybody  present  thought  he said  "Pawn  Shop," and  a dca.il  silence  followed   his   remark.  After     a time one of thc aldermen  setting     at the further end of      Mutable was heard to murmcr "A pawn  shop, -Aid.-Blair;, what docs  the city  want with a pawn shop?" "'  Aid. Blair explained.. He meant to  convey the impression that it.would  be . a good idea to convert (he ex-  tinsmith shop into a place in which  stray; cattle anHtaglcss dogs could  be kept. The proposal was rejected  and the clerk instructed to communicate with Mr. .--Yarwood regarding  the building.  The     road  foreman's report    was  received   and   filed,, and  accounts   including school teachers' salaries    amounting to  $5*90.50  were  ordered''to  be  paid.

It is not yet given out just  how tin's will be done, but it is quite  likely it will be via Nanaimo both  ways.

The little horse circle is delightful  and even helpful, but thc viewpoints  and opportunities of our fellow-citizens are so nearly identical that our  next door neighbors wc not apt to  .furnish as profitable friendships as  persons we meet whose environments  are dilfercnt and who have perhaps,  had a wider range of opportunities  and seen-more of the things worth  while, winch are the heritage of thc  traveler. When the man who is familiar with the East meets the man  who lias learned 1he. great story of  the West, the'conversation is pretty  apt to be' worth listening to.��������� Four-  Tr.ick News.  ������g3fffffgffff������������������(  Needs  What you get for your money is just as important as the amount you pay.

Vancouver, Sept. 2d���������Thc Rugby  Club made a move in the right direction at the annual meeting on  Thursday night, when it decided to  organize a Senior League ui Vancouver tins season. Such a league will  do more lo develop new material  than anyiInng else; there will be  plenty of room for every player in  the city, and it will do a whole lot  of good in keeping up thc intciest in  the good old game of RugS'ty in this  City.  The idea is to have thro** clubs entered in thc series, and when a team  is" selected lo represent Vancouver m  a Provincial championship match thc  best men will he choson from among  the three teams. Every player will  have a chance to get. into Senior  company, and it only remains fo*-  him to show good form in the City  matches There -.vin Lc no lack of  material this scasoni and thc Champions should be represented by-one or  the strongest fifteens that has ever  been gathered together in this City.

C  A  TRIBUTE   TO  THE  CANINE  In a suit for damages claimed for  the killing of *a dog, the late-Scnator  Ves't. delivered many year's" ago a.  striking address on-..behalf of the  plaintiff" before a Missouri jury.  "Gentlemen  of the     jury:-���������The best  friend,    a  man      may have may   turn  against     him 'arid become his enemy.  His son or'daughter that he hasis.-un  grateful.   Those who are nearest and  dearest     to us, those whom wc trust  with our    good name     and with  our  happiness    may become     traitors to  their faith.   The .   memory that   man  has,he may',   lose; it flies away from  him, p.-ihaps,  when he needs it most.  A man's reputation may be sacrificed  in a   moment of    ill-considered action.  The people who     arc prone 4*0 -an on  their knees to  do us  honor when success is with     us, may be the first  to  throw     the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our head.  The  one  absolutely   unselfish   friend  ��������� that   man     lias in Ibis selfish'world,  that never deserts him,* the one  that  never proves      ungrateful   or treacherous, is    his dog:   A  man's dog stands  hy him      in prosperity,  in health  and  in sickness.   He will sleep on lhc cold  ground      where     winter  winds   blow  and  t.he   win-d   drives   fiercely,   if  only  he may    bc     near his   master's side..  ITe   win kiss     the-   hand  that has  no  food to ofiei-: he will  lick thc wounds  and sores    that      come   in  encounter  with  l.he roughness  of the, world. He  guards the sleep of his pauper mrsl.er  as if he   were  a  prince.   When  all   nth  .  or      friends    depart   he   will   remain.  When riclus     lake w-ngs and reputation fai's to  pieces he is as constanl  in his love as th." sun in its journeys  tlirnugh tlie heavens.   .,.  "If fortune drives  the master forth  an outcast in the world, frjendirss and  homeless,    the      faithful dog asks  no  bigger  privilege than   that   of accompany in,<j! him t.-  guard against, dan-re r  to   fight     against, his, enemies.    And  when thc last scene or an  comes  and  'death      takes the, master    in his  embrace and he is  laid  away in the cold  ground. :io matter if an other friends  pursue their way, there by the prnvr-  ri'iI.-    wm the noble tin2 he ,'oud. his  head between     his paws.' his eyes sad  hut. open  and ���������aie.vt,  faithful and true  even in death.i' . ;  HARTLEY   GISBORNE  Member  Can.
