BUaUiCl Aniiai ial hare neither money nor food, ninety - eight of them have no place to go to. and after vainly attempting to camp at Stauley Park and being ordered out by the police, are wandering around the streets of the city begging for food. And still the statement is made at Ottawa that there were only fifty Hindoos in the whole province of British Columbia. When the steamer arrived last evening the Hindoos were placed in the detention shed, and it was plainly evident to those who saw them land that the majority of them were in the most poverty - stricken condition, and it was wondered by many where the passage money for their fares came from, as it is quite evident that few, if any of them, ever made enough money in India to pay their passage to this country, r Early this morning the foreigners were released from the detention shed, and Jhe trouble at once commenced. One result of the invasion nf the city by these Hindoos was that Mayor Buscomhe, at noon today, telegraphed the government officials at Ottawa, stating that 276 Hindoos were lauded by the . P. R. steamer Tartar last evening, and also stating that as the Hindoos were undesirable immigrants the city did not wish them brought into the city. s . When the Hindoos were released from the detention shed most of them did not know where to go. and some at once formed into small bands and commenced begging for food in the houses throughout, the city, and in most, places food was secured, as the women were so frightened that, they were afraid to re fuse the Hiudoos' requests. Several houses on l'oweil street were visited, and complnints reached the police officials that the Hindoos were not only beggjng for food and money, but were threatening and scaring womeu and children in the vicinity. Ninety - eight of the immigrants went to Stanley Park and decided to camp in the rear of the Stanley Park brewery, near Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper's residence. Mayor Buscombe was notified that the Hindoos were camped there the Hindoos moved farther into the park and decided that Second Beach was a good, camping ground. They lighted several fires on the beach and were busily engaged in devouring what little food they had secured by begging iu.iU.ay . the park,' when Superintendent Eldon swooped down on them and ordered them to put out the fires and to get out of the park as quickly as possible. upt. Eldon was afraid the fires would spread to the timber and destroy valuable tracts in 4he park. By this time at least twenty complaints had been made to the police, and three constables went to the park and ousted the immigrants. party then went dowu town and joined their comrades, who were standing in groups on the various prominent cornel's, a sad contrast, to the "made in Vancouver'' spirit which prevails. The police were given orders to keep the crowds moving, and any found begging will at once be taken into custody on a charge of vagrancy. That these Hindoos are entirely without either food or money is quite apparent, and where they are going to get food and shelter no one seems to know. Already there are hundreds of starving - Hindoos in this city and citizens are unanimously of the opinion that no more are needed. The ones who arrived last evening were almost pitiable to look at, as they are scarcely clothed ami most of them are badly in need of a bath. Where they will sleep tonight not known, unless some of the Hindoos already cramped into quarters not. half large enough to accommodate them take pity on their less fortunate companion! and give them food and shelter until sop other place is secured.

DRIVEN TO SUICIDE BY DREAD DISEASE A horrible find was made by T'ark Superintendent Eldon late yesterday afternoon when he came across the badly decomposed body of a man in one of the deserted skid roads off the path leading from the road around the end of Coal Harbor to the inaiu park road nt English Bay. The body lay under a big fir tree and in such a position as to indicate that the man had lain down there as if to sleep. There would appear to be little reason to doubt that it is a case of deliberate suicide, and while the identity of the muu is not positively known, it is almost certain that lie is J. Rutherford, who lived for some time and until lust May at 12044 Third avenue, Fair - view. j When the police were notified of the : find. Officer Cook was detailed to bring ! tke body in and on search a purse con - .' tabling lit cents, a cheap Ingersoll watch, a rusty knife and a notebook. The latter was much mildewed aud its i contents almost undecipherable. Two : entries w hich are thought to indicate suicide were noted, as follows: "June 8, lUOti I write this being in full possession of my senses. For the lust four years I have suffered from that disease called locomotor ataxia, which they say is incurable. Well. I nun that l aro barred, that l can get no work, and as my money is all gone, I intend taking a dose of laudanum which I hojie will put me out of my misery. Doctors may call this teni - poiary insanity, but it is not. I am only a nuisance to myself and would be an encuiuiirance to my relatives if ALDERMEN TREAT PROPERTY OWNERS WITH DELICATE IRONY The delicate consideration and the complete comprehension of their duties and responsibilities to reputable property owners aud taxpayers that can be shown when really necessary by civic officials and chic committees is well illustrutetl" iu the action taken yesterday by the finance committee regarding the injunction proceedings taken to stop the sewer work on Hamilton street and along the lane between Hastings ami Pender streets. The property owners who were moved to take injunction proceedings are not men who would have taken such action without knowing thoroughly what they were doing and why they were doing it. The very fact that they have ko ucted indicates sufficiently the gravity of the case, and yet all the considera - i tion they get from a board composed j of aldermeu elected by themselves is a puerile and would - be smart and funny discussion. The city solicitor notified the committee of the injunction that had been taken out regarding the basement drain on Hamilton street. This was fully explained in Friday's paper. Aid. Morton thought that they had better let the injunction remain. If the property owners did not waut the drain I in that block, well and good. They could cut that block out and go down Homer street. Aid. liaise thought that the solicitor should appear in relation to the matter and explain to the court. Even if the injunction were lifted the city might change the route. Aid. Morton said that, the work was I continue to live Nobody in this world will know the pain and agoniej I have suffered and I hope they will never suffer the same." "May l.'J. llHHi. Victoria, B.

"4 p.m. Decided to pull out for Vancouver tonight," A little beneath this was written in letters scarcely decipherable, the address: "J. RI'TIIEKFORD. L'044 Third Ave. West." Enquiry by the police last night revealed the fact that a Mr. Rutherford hud lived with his family at the address indicated but had left the neighborhood some time in May last. It was understood then that they had gone to Spokane but that they had some intention of going back to Scotland. Rutherford is said to have spoken of various plans, among which was a contemplated trip to the Stewart river country. Lust winter he worked with Mr. John Jolin - cox at the (lulf Fish Curing company's establishment in New Westminster, and took occasional trips to Nanaimn and Victoria The body is said to correspond with descriptions siven of Rutherford, although the features are unrecognirahle Nothing litis developed today to ahem positively that the body is that of Rutherford, but Hip police appear to have no doubt on this point.

The day has been p,:fc(t. and at the time of writing the streets are epuvded with siglit - seers who are Mjng up Van "liver's home industries fw the f - nt time.
