it for it is a credit to the city where

how do you figure that $25,000 is
"one per cent" of $250,000.

The idea advanced in the council
last evening of changing the names
of the streets is a good one and could
with great propriety be acted on.
The present uncouth names of many
of our streets in the minds of many
are a positive detriment to our growth
and standing as a city, and to change
the names at least of some of the
streets running east and west would
be in order. The Astokian's columns
are open for comment on this as on
all other public questions.

The Coal Harbor extension from
Port Moody will be proceeded with
as soon as contracts can be let, and
it is anticipated that it will bo built
and in working order Ly the 15th of
Jnly. The ronnd houses, machine
shops, station and other terminal
buildings will not be got under, way
until some time iu April. The Do
minion government have abandoned
the intention of building terminal
facilities at Port Moody, and arrange
ments are consummated to proceed
with their erection at the Coal Harbor
terminus. They will necessarily be
of an extensive nature, as the princi
pal repair shops of the whole division
will be located at this point. Ar
rangements are being made for the
building of 1,000 feet of steamship
wharfage at Coal Harbor, and piles
are now being got out for this pur
pose. English bay will not at present
be utilized for wharfage, butjthe com
pauy's property at this point will bo
reserved for future developments.
The New Westminster branch will
be constructed simultaneously with
the Coal Harbor extension, providing
arrangements are complete for hand
ing over the $50,000 bonus, and con
nection made at about the same time
as with the former point.
The service with the east will be
made to meet traffic requirements,
but will probably commence with two
trains per day. Tourist travel over
the new route will undoubtedly be
very large, and especial efforts win be
made to make the line attractive.
The cars will be of the same palatial
character as those run in the east,
while cars specially constructed for
viewing the magnificent scenery will
be put on through the mountains.
The development of the mining re-.
sources of the country will create a
large passenger and freight traffic.
As soon as the sawmills are in oper
ation in the timber districts east of
Eagle Pass, lumber trains will start
to supply the demand for building
material in the treeless prairieB.
The company contemplate putting
on a line of fast steamers between
Coal Harbor and Victoria so soon as
trade would warrant it; but for the
present, arrangements would be made
with the existing local company. It
was also their intention to place on a
line of fast steamers to Japan to fur
ther trade with the Asiatics, but
when this would .be done has not as.
yet been decided. Victoria Colonist

To the Honorable Mayor and Com

Coucilman Gratke called the atten
tion of the council to the matter of
having the names of the streets paint
ed on the street lamps. Councilman
Sovey favored the proposition, but
suggested that the names of thestreets
themselves be changed. After some
further discussion it was decided to
refer the matter to the committee on
streets and public ways, with instruc
tions to report at. the uext meeting.
On motion the committee ou public
property was instructed to notify the
Astoria Gas Light company aud Jas.
Feeley that the contract for lighting
the streets was awarded to them, the
former to light the lamps with gas as
as far as their mains extended, the
latter to light the outside lamps with
oil. On motion council adjourned.

Much has been said and written
concerning corns by eminent scien
tists and theologians who have given
the subject earnest and prayerful at
tention, but there is still left a broad
field for thoughtful investigation.
The writer of this paper has an unri
valed collection of these exotics, and
has devoted much careful study to
their growth and habits, watched
them in rejwse, and felt the passionate
throb of their mad pulses when the
gentle but firm pressure of a too con
tiguous boot stirred all their dormant
energies to action; cooled their fe
vered brows with lemon juice and
cold cream, and with a fond and dot
ing parent's tender care have nigh tlv
wrapped their parched and pain
racked frames in the soothing folds
of an oleaginous rag; bound eelskin
and tobacco on the soft variety, and
have rasped down those of the hard
shelled persuasion with a rat-tail
file ; have patiently watched the mi
croscopic germ in the cuticle, that to
the inexperienced eye gave no prom
ise of its future greatness, until it
blossomed into a mighty bunion ca
pable of exciting more remorse and
Scriptural language than an outdoor
revival meeting. In short, there is
no phase of corn life with which I
am not as familiar as with the tenets
of the Emersonian school of philos
ophy. It is not, however, the purpose of
this brief article to enter into a
lengtlvy disquisition upon the birth
or origin of .the corn, or the relation
it bears to modern civilization. In
our forthcoming work entitled "The
Bunion as a Means of Grace" these
questions are fully and fearlessly
discussed. The present purpose is
merely to impart a few words of wis
dom that will awaken interest and
curiosity and create a desire to be
come better acquainted with the sub
ject in hand, or, more properly
speaking, on foot.
Did you ever reflect that the corn
is an index of refinement and enlight
enment? You may seek for it in
vain in the miserable habitations of
the native of Terra del Fuego or the
bushmen of Australia, but in the
gilded homes of statesmen and men
of letters you will find them by the
score. Gaze upon the generous feet
of the King of the Cannibal Islands,
who never had a corn in his life un
less it was appended to a roasted
missionary and then search the em
bossed pedal extremities of Mr.
Gladstone, or Lord Tennyson, or Lily
Langtry, or the writer of this article,
and you will realize that it is not the
shriek of the locomotive,or the gaudy
uniform of the somnolent telegraph
messenger, but the humble and un
assuming corn that speaks loudest of
the onward strides of civilization. If
you are not convinced look backward
into the dim past into the ages
when had even the tongue of proph
ecy lisped of the printing press, the
steam engine or the dude, its words
would have been scouted as the rav
ings of a disordered brain. Historv
records that Cleopatra had freckles,
but where upon its pages will you
find a syllable to indicate that any of
the ancients had corns? Can it bo
supposed for a moment that a writer
who would take pains to describe a
paltry assortment of cuticular polka
dotswould, had they then existed,
have omitted to mention those ana
tomic oriels that now fill the gaiters
of the human race so full of vain
regrets? Certainly not. It is clear
that only for a few centuries have
even the civilized nations of the
globe known the chastening influ
ences of the contumacious corn.
