spoken of two former houses and this one
deserves mote than a passing remark. Il
is 1Y1 storey high; has a front like lhat
of Mr. Mounce, bui with some variation
however. The combination of bay win-
dmv and piazza is a pleasant one, and the
shingled cap above with its neat railing,
and the ornamental gdile produce a
charming elTcct. The side roof on the
Courtenay road side is broken by a figure
extending above the cornice like thc letter V inverted. This is shingled in artistic style. The rear ell is provided
with a pinzia, and cvenhing is in proportion and harmoniour.

The schoolmistress hnd with her a
couple of miniature schoolmarms. She
saw me and of course could not help look
ing al me; no, what I mean is, she looked at me and could not help seeing me,
and she kept looking a: me until she was
nearly out of sight. She musl have been
interested. I was lying on llie platform,
mind y< u, all this time, otherwise I don't
know whal mijht "-.ave happened. Well,
my train soon came along, and with it
my partner. I boarded her bui not on
the blind baggage. The brakie was
there so 1 look the rear platform. Pretty
soon the brakie came up and asked me
if I had a ticket. I politely informed
him lhat it was none of his business,
so he sent* the conductor out for the information. The result was that 1 concluded to yet off at Missinn City, and being
pretty thoroughly disgusted with my experience 1 just thought 1 would go back
to Vanrouver like the gentleman I was;
so 1 asked the conductor i" there was work
in the pit near Wharnock. He said he
did't think so, but I could go and see. 1
thought I could sec my fare there anyway, so bonrded his trnin and got a ride
within two miles of Wharnock, aad hooted it there and was soon lying on the
pl.itform. Pretty soon the pretty school
mistress with the two miniature school
inarms came along. At first she looked
knives, in fact razors, at me; then she
got rid of her two miniature schoolmarms
and came back and looked at me again.
Then she boldly walked up and asked
me Ifl was going to take the local lo
Vancouver. I said, Ye-*'m. She said it
would have to be flagged. Well, thnt
train didn't' come for more than two
hours, but it only seemed to mc about
ten minutes. When the train arrived
the lovely schoohnarm flagged it and 1
got aboard and whislled to the tunc,
"lhe girl 1 left behind me." I reached
Vancouver without furthci incident, and
went straight to ihe Carter House. At
this place I soon got on good terms with
the head-waitress, withwhom I often exchanged glances, and we both appeared
satisfied with our bargain. I won't mention her name as she might be your
I wasn't at the. Carter House long till I
got acquainted with the roadmasier of
the C. P. R. and futind he had a sister at
Mi. ,  Comox, whom some of you
know. He put me on an extra gang oul
at Port Moody, and for friendship s;*ke
wrote to thc boss there to keep me on
even if I did turn out n. g. He gave me
a pass, so I got into a second class car nnd
he got on the platform. I got alorg piet
ty well, slipping into a Pullman where a
snble son ofa gun ofa nigger told me to
"git". I told him 1 warned to see the
Road Boss. He said he wasn't there. 1
gently informed him that he had told a
deliberate lie! He didn't say much
more but seemed to do a lot of thinking.
Well I got n line to the Boss and he
wrote "0. k,"
At the Westminster Junction we went
lo work. Bui my psor back acked! The
Buss noticed it, and 1 noticed he had his
opinion of me and also that it didn't help
ine out much. He didn't say anvih.ng
the first day. At supper the cook kicked
about my drinking all ihe milk: at break
fast Johnson, the boss, frowned at this
because he missed it pietty badly. The
next day it poured which didn't help me
out much. Johnson watched ine when
I slraighted up and felt my back. He
asked mc what was the matter. 1 said
that the rain had taken effect on my
rheumatism. The next day the rain
came down thicker than ever. Thee
was a blockade of trains. 1 came near be
ing nipped. Johnston g ive me a talking
to; when he had finished I replied, "Encore," etc, The boys laughed; he didn't.
Aficr a while we were sent to clean out
a lot of M. T. cars. This didn't last long
and it being so exceedingly damp out
side we sat by the fire and spun
yarns long and loud, until Johnston came
along and gave us a tongue thrashing���
mc iH particular; why 1 do not know.
Guess lie was built tnai way. The next
morning it was raining again so we had
.1 debate whether to go out at all or not
At last we decided to go west about a
mile, I could see lohnsion had a bad
attack of the sulks so I kept quiet. He
kept pacing up and down like an officer
on duly, always encouraging me lo woik.
At las! he told me to do hci-cr or quit
and passed on. When he returned 1 was
going to sleep on my shovel. He asked what was ihe matter? 1 says "I'm doing belter by quilling." He say's "All
right, "Go aud get your hoard bill." I
started. He called me hack again anil
says, says he, "Whal are you quilting
for?" I says, "I'm obeying orders. I'm
doing better by quitting". He tried to
get me to Stop, but I didn't obey orders
this lime. I went and got my board bill,
went back to him and got my time, went
back and settled my bill, got my blankets
and lefi them lo follow by express, and
as there was no train for six hours I hoof
ed it to the city. I tiied to get board al
the Carter House but no go. I then
went to ihe Union Hotel inul after a long
talk succeeded in coaxing the landlord to
keep me in hash for awhile. Then 1
wrote home to my financial secretary,
Wm. Duncan, Esq. jusl to let him known
how 1 was gelling along.

My Dear Sir:
We want you to do aomo husiii"*--s

have almost stopped buying lottery ticUce;
it is heeauae there haa been nu prize of value
drawn there for years, and many have tha*
become discouraged and havo ceased to pat-
rimi/i- lotteries euiirely. There is but one
way to revive the old time interest and ex *
oitement, and that ia for some oue to draw
a prizo large enough in value to utimiil.it"
and induco others to start tn buying tickets
again. We givi TWO THOUSAND more

and will guarautee that the sale of a tew
tickets will result in aome one drawing a
prize, aa in our company oue number in

man like yourself should draw seventy tboua
and dollars, twenty thousand dollars, ten
thousand dollars, or eveu live thousand in
our littery, it would he the means of selling
thousands of our tioketB in your part of thu
country, and would create au old time bourn
for ub again. Now wo give you tho eneloi*

ahould you draw either of the above amounts

Board up the partition of the a talis at

from the same manger nor lick each other.
Keep each suspected animal strictly iu ita

auch animal use a driukiug trough or
bucket in common with other animal.-*.
Avoid old milch cows and unthrifty ones,
or keep them secluded from the rosi of the
herd, A weakness of constitution and a
ausctptibility to tuberculosis in indicated by
a head which is narrow between the horns,
by sunken eyes; deep temporal cavity
back of the eyes ; thin, narrow ewe neck ;
small cheat,which lacsa both in breadth and
depth *, hollow flank and tendency to potbelly ; a general lack of muscle ho that the
limbs seem loosely attached to the body,
and lighter shades of hrown antl yellow in
parti-colored breeds. If, however, such
animalti are of high value fur the dairy, und
can bo   kept free   from  tuberculosis,  they
need not be rejected. Tbe finest, conformations of tho darker colored beef breeds
furnish no protection in the presence of
this microbe. Purchases Bhouid not be
made trom ������ herd in which tuherculobis

Refuse a cow with a husky or rattling

all tuberculous animals, and boil, burn,
dissolve in acid, or bury deeply iu a place
to which iioauiiiials have access, Thoroughly disinfect the promi-ies, alao all products

A Shanghai despatch aays : ��� Letters
from Weihaiwei aay that the old Viceroy,
bi Hnng Chang, is carrying nut 'he triennial inspection of tho IJulf ports in a way
which excites the wonder even of foreign*
era. This inspection, il was fouud, was
vital in order to keep up the standard of
the Chinese soldiers and marines. The
Cliine.su do not take kindly to the profession of arms, audit rotpiiros long training
to produce efficiency. The Viceroy, howovor, determined ten years ago to make
iho Chinese fleet respectable, even if not
formidable, und ho also decided to put uu
end to the farcical gun practice and drill
which was carried on ut the different forts
and ;u senilis. Ho secured tbe best foreign
drlllmasters to he procured, choosing them
Impartially from Knglish and (iermun
ollieers, and tbe result haa been u very
great improvement ou the whole service,
Thu Chinese navy is now respectable.
The large vessels are the best which monoy
could buy in Kurope, while the smaller
vessels, like gunboat*, torpedo cruisers,
and despatch boats, have been made at the
l''oochow arsenal, largely by Chinese who
received their training from liritish aud
German experts. The moment the native
workmen could be trusted to work under
Chinese overseers the foreigners were discharged, for tho Chinese are extremely
sensitive, uud they disliked to have any
one who would report the progress they
were makiug.
Under careful training the Chinese have
proved far better Bailors than any foreigner
ever imagined would be possible. They
have also developed unexpected skill in the
handling of guns. The mamcuvres thia
year at Tulionwun were aaid to be very
sutiafactory. 'Ihe old Viceroy is a harsh
critic as lie has paid great attention to the
work dono on the bestforeignBhips, and ia,
therefore, exacting in hia demands. He was
greatly ploused wibh the skill wilh whioh
the ships were handled and at the efficiency
of the gunners. The artillery practice at
Werhai was especially commended for ils
accuracy, and foreign experts who alao
witnessed it declared that ths next European nation which geta into a war with
China will not tind the Celestial gunners
shooting wild. The men handled their
pieces tike veterans, and the ranging and
Bightiug were done us well aa the average
practice nf this kind in European batteries.
The battalion drill of the blue jackets was
also praised. The torpedo establishments
here uml ut Port Arthur were inspected
with grout care and were fmind tn be in
good condition.
Under the old regime an inspection of
this kind waa a mere tarce which was regarded by the high official Assigned to it
as a pretext tor u tine junket. Every petty
official wns bound to serve the best food
and wine ihut he could secure, and the in*
spec! um thua degenerated into a round of
festivities. Unlet* some llagruut accident
occurred the reports wore always compli*
mentary, though foreign experts who witnessed iho mauo'uvrea told queer stories of
the utter lack of skill and discipline shown
by the Chinese crews of gunboats und the
native mariners who were supposed to
guard tho furls and ai-Bonals, The war
with i'runce over Tonuuin, however, was
uu eye-open**! for tho Viceroy Li and ever
since ho hua heen unsparing in pains And
expense to make tho Chinese navy effective
und to build up the army. It has been uphill work, Itecuuse the discipline and efficiency aro not natural to the Celestial. Only
a man of Viceroy Li'fl groat energy and
indomitable wil) could have made headway
against the apathy And corruption which
exisiod on every hand. With hia unlimited
power���for he is the real governing head of
China���he aoon made the lazy and cou-
Kciousless mandarins understand that they
must turn over a now leaf. The first of his
triennial inspections oi the posts of the
Gulf nf Pee-choe-leo was u farce but each
succeeding inspection has shown a marked
improvement thut promises well for the
future of China's defences.

A St, Petersburg, despatch aays :���The

late. According to report lie recently found
upon hia table a document which aet forth
that the sentence of death had been pronounced upon htm and that the sentence
would be carried out within twenty-four
hours. This document was signed "The
Society for the Liberation ofthe Kuaaiana."
A fow days afterward the Czar found upon
the dressing table ir hia bed room a skull
with the word "Alexander" inscribed upon
the flout ul bone.
The greatest Alarm ia auid to havo been
caused throughout the imperial palace
and in rtlicial Russian circles generally by
these discoveries and up to the present all
the resources of the Russian seciet and
public police have proved utterly useless
either to discover how the document or the
skull were introduced into the palace,much

General Tseherevln, who was in charge
of the imperial puluco and who wua responsible I' r the safety of the C/ur, has since

Tacherovin a special officer for the protection of the imperial family. It waa said
then that Generals Thiereviu and Woron-

There is no doubt that the Czar haa been

A plain wooden coffin (writes the St.
Petersburg correspondent.) waa lately com
veyed, in a shaky ohl hearse, tothe poor
people's section of the Velkova Cemetery,
in this city. There was no priest to recite
the last prayers, uo mourners In shed a tear
over the relative or friend who hud paaaed
away j tho grave-diggers lowered the wood*
en hox, hurriedly shovelled in tho earth,
stamped on the grave and all was aver. A
dog or rabbit might have been thua put out
ef sight And yet all St, Petersburg is now
talking about the lifeless inmate of that
plain, frail coffin. For ho waa a well-known
manufacturer, u millionaire, a power in the
cupitul of Russia, whu icattered money to the
right and to tho left, doing
never known or long since forgotten, and
now there ia none ao poor to do him reverence. His poverty and misery were of
own choosing! ingratitude drove him to
imitate Timou of Athens, and lo turn hi;
buck upon mankind.
In the very height of his prosperity he
fell ill, And hia recovery waa despaired nf.
He made a will in fuvor of his wife, who
wua theu no longer young, and of his ch
dren, whom he adored. He survived the
crisis of his malady and was able to move
about, but his death was believed to be only
a matter of months. Tho doctors sent him
to a watering-place for the summer season,
not expecting him to return alive, and his
wife and children shared the conviction of
the physicians. Appointing a young man,
who waa bound to him by the strongest ties
of gratitude, to be director of the works,
he left St. Petersburg alone.
At lirat he became much worse, as everybody expected ; then he rapidly improved,
in consequence of which ho stayed on longer
than had buen his intention. At the end
of six months he returned homo a*> hale
and hearty us ever, eager to enjoy life
with hia family. Itut be found no family
there. His wife had played the role
of Potiphar'u spouse in hia absence
but the young man director proved no

openly, and succeeded in turning the children

and merely anticipated���ab she thought���
the course af action ahe would in that caae

far to retreat, she simply demanded a large
yearly Allowance for herself, her paramour
and the children.
It was a terrible blow for S���,but he
acted with prompt decision, and without
uttering a word of complaint or reproach,
first of all he dismissed the director. Then,
calling the bookkeeper into hia room he
said: "Now, look here, Vou know what

it haa affected mo. The 'pair' counted on

now reckon on my riches, and I wish them

nothing. If 1 squander my money they
will apply to the courts to have me declared
non compos meiicw, and trustees will be
���appointed to look after everything, and
that of oourae is not what I want. Now
listen. I am the sole owner of the works,
and I can do what I like with my own,
and I wuni you to oxer', yourself to bring

and carried out hia employer's instruct ions
The manufacturer, seeing how things
were going, rubbed his hands with delight
and payed his wife the covenanted allowance. At tho the end of two yeara came
the crash, the very fragments of which
oould not be gathered up by his family.
Before the matter became public he called
a meeting of his cashiers, bookeeper, foremen and his wife and children. The latter
were convinced that his object was to
hand over the works to them, for he had
more than once given thom tu understand
aa much, auying : " Take everything, I
want nothing now."
He opened the meeting by asking Ida
cashiers for their reports. They declared
tho works to he so heavily in debt that, it
would be criminal to keep them going any
longer on credit. " Very woll, go at once
to the court," he said to his bookkeeper,
and report my inaolvency." Hia wife
and children protested loudly and indignantly. They would mako thinga cummer*
iully right again if he would ouly give
them tho works.    But
the bookkeeper went, and six months later
everything was sold for a song. Then,
addreaaiug hia family, he auid I " Now the
time is come for us to separate. My dear

servant gave him a pair of top boots, an
old overcoat and a shabby hat. " Whore

the Staff!" ** Here, pleaso." He flung the
wallet over his shoulders, took the stuff iu
hia hand, made the sign of tho cross uud
kissed hia old servant.
Then, without a word of farewell for hia
wife or ohildren, he loft tho house forever.

Mecca Pilgrims and Cholera,
An article has appeared in a recent number of the British Medical Journal by u
Moslem named Maul vie Rafiiiddin Ahmad,
on the subject of tho Mecca pilgrims and
iholera, in which the wiiter points out that
the pilgrimage us at present conducted iB
an international disaster. The remedy, he
thinks, lies in the power of the Sultan, who
ahould at onco appoint u commission to investigate the matter. If the present state
of affairs continue, the recurrence of the
plague ut Mecca will diminish tho number
of nib-rims, destroy the trade dependent
upon Ihem, and cause a loss of much of tho
Sultan's moral influence over the Mohammedan world. Thia view of the subject
from the standpoint of the pilgrims them-
selvea is encouraging, ami indicates that
thu Mohammedans ure not so bigoted in the
matter aBhas heen believed. Tho Holy Woll
haa for a long time pant lieen the breeding
place of cholera germs, and it is to be hoped
that the time ia coming when its sanitary
condition will be improved.

My position was tjiiite secured. I could
do as I pleased, aud I intended lo do so, 1
was freo to tnke up the Prince if I pleased,
and to throw him over again when I pleased
and bow.
Society, in the strictest sense of the term,
was closed tn me. As lho divorced wife
of an Ambassador, I had the doors of every
Court in Europe hopelessly shut in my
face ; and as I now knew, beyond the
circle uf the Court there is no society in
auy capital of Kurope.
Vour richest rotnrier sets aside certain
nights af hia talon for tho Court circle, and
others for lho remainder of tils necessary

be more exact, 1 should say t hat 1 ought to
have seen it, To he strictly truthful, I
will own that. I have seen it, but had simply
shut my eyes to it.

and, as Russians have very little sentiment
aliout them, I can put the story plainly
The Princo one day did mo tbe honor, in
tlio most faultless English and with a con'
BJderahte am mint of more or less siucere
Muscovite passion of laying his heart and
three hundred thousand francs a year at my
Hi* frankness was something refreshing.
He could not marry, be explained without
the permission under bin sign manual of tbo
Czar himself, who would never consent to
the union of lho representative of a family
allied to tbe I'oinannlf with the daughter of
an English priest, however exalted in his
holy oalliug.
Thore was besides a little dilliculty in
the fact that his owu wife happened unfortunately to be still alive, and that her
father, although tint of very exalted birth,
bold a position ul tho highest trust And
confidence in lhe Imperial Chencellerie,
Money, however, was the merest triHe. He
would deposit u sum with thu Rothschilds
or any other French ur Euglish houso sullicient ii secure me a yearly income of three
hundred thousand francs, and I oould tuition ��w select and furnish any hotel in
Paris that took my fancy.
All this was said as plainly and as brutally as if be had been talking to any member of la haute cocotteric, and yet with
the most imperturbable grace and polish.
I remember only two ideas���if I can so
term ihem���that Hashed through my mind.
One was to ask myself what I had done to
merit this insult, or  if  I  could  in  any
rissible way have given him the idea that
had been laying myself open to do it.
The ut her was an almost insane desire
to kill him as be stood there, leaning with
all his groat length against the mantel-piece,
and twisting Ids wateh-cltaiu into knots between his great lingers,
I believe I should bave been idiotic
enough to have done as much if a pistol had
been lying ready to my haml ; and I am
quite sure lhat it would have been ono of
those oases in which the late Maitre
Laohaud would havo soon ed a triumphant,
Luckily, there was uo pistol, or, indeed,
Any olher weapoi. more dangerous than a
paper knife at band ; und so, not caring to
trust myself to French, I addressed him in
my own tongue,
I began by lolling him that he was a
coward lo insult me as bo bad done, and
that, if I bail laoqueya within call, I would
have him thrust out. Thin, I said, ho
might take as my definite answer and as
tny liiuil answer, since 1 unhappily knew
no Englishmen in Paris to oall him to
account. Meantime he saw tho door, and
be oould go.
Anil hero, I am afraid, I somewhat
spoiled lho dignity of my harangue hy
adding that tbe sooner be went the better.
This, no doubt, was vulgar ; but I think,
on the other band, that I can fairly plead
I was excited.
I cannot tell whether this outburst took
him by surprise or not. I must only presume it did ; for he would have hardly
provoked it if he had forseeu it.
Aa thoro was clearly nothing else to do,
he said, without the least expression of "irritation, that be dooply tegretted the un*
fortunate misunderstanding which had
occurred, und the whoie blame of which he
was frankly willing to accept. And he thon

more serious matters.
" We muat really take counsel together,
Ethel. I have bad, this morning, a pro-
posal whioh has fairly bewildered and disgusted me."
"Good grAcions!"
" I feel pretty muoh as the Dean might
have felt throe years Ago if the Prime Min
ister had dropped from Heaven after thi
fashion of a thunderbolt, straight through
the roof, And alighted at the hearthrug at
the Vicarage, and had then said without
any attempt at preliminary warning i "Mr.
SU Aubyn, you are the ablest man in thu

you a bishop to-morrow, only it must be un

RiHsian, to lie strictly true. Of lhat I can

done tbe right thing. About that there is
no manner of doubt. And if poor George
Sabine wore alive it would have been a vory
different matter. Rut he isn't alive, and I
think you were a little hard upon tho Russian. After his own barbarous fashion, and

No more talking over matters with Ethel
Forteacue would have altered the poaition
an inch. I understood her point of view
thoroughly, and she knew I did so. She
understood mine. We were far too good
friends, and too sincerely attached to one
another to quarrel, especially over what
was entirely my own affair. And, each of
ns iu her own way, we were more like men
than women, regarding friendship as a very
raro and precious thing which must not be
broken by differences of opinion���opinion
being a transitory matter, and liable to
sudden changes and shitts ofthe wind, or
to periods of entire calm, such as you get
in that hurriblu region the Duldrums.
Whereas friendship, like the trade winds,
always blows steadily in a direction Whioh
can be anticipated and consequently Is not
to bo made light of, or treated as a matter
of indifference and a disturbing element in
your plaus.
A compromise, however, was possible,
I had my fifteen hundred a year. As to
that there could be no possible doubt. If
we arc to conic to tbo details of household
management, of which my sad and long
experience at Ost-nlston had taught me
only loo much, two women can live together as cheaply as ono can live by herself,
I onsni-ucntly I was not hampered in my
calculation by my loyalty to Mra, Forteacue
whom I could welcome ut any time and
upon uny notice.
So I decided to go tn England, and to
live decorously and respectably. Not that
I suggest for a moment, that 1 had ever
done otherwises This resolution determined

sincere expressions of goodwill and affection
Ethel went off to Carlsbad ; I made my
way to Leamington, And now begins the
story, which, 1 fear, I must abridge in its
tolling, of "La-Iuivo Errunte."
I had boen at Leamington about two
months. 1 lived in unexceptionable lodgings. 1 kept a littio pony-carriage at the
adjacent livery stables. I lodged the largest sum at my disposal ut tho Joint Stock
Rank���for ub Joint Stock Ranks every
clork tells tho affairs of tho customer to all
Ms friends. I engaged a maid, a bloused
Warwickshire woman of thirty, whose
orders wero to accompany me wherever I
might go, and, by way of color, to always
carry au umbrella, or a box of water-colors,
or some such lumber.
After aliout two months people began to
call upon me. First came the wife of a
dootor, whom a convenient chill and sore
throat had obliged me to summon.
I praised her husband's skill And tact. I
drew a comparison between him and the
great Sir Timothy Carver, by no means
favorable lo thaL most distinguished surgeon. 1 regretted that th** sphere of her
husband's abilities should be bounded by
Leamington, und I sent ber away radiant*
Within a woek I was askod to diuner,and
I went.
I was dressed in black with a high neok
trimmed with some of my most valuable
lace. I wore a amall cap���a cap of protest
I might also call it���and my only jewels
were a black pearl brooch and pendants
which, I believe, upon my honor some of
tho ladies took tor jot.
I was a success; and whon the men came
up from their cigarettes and fivo-year-old
port, bringing the full aroma with them, 1
could see that I had made my mark, for
thoy all clustered round me.
Amongst them, however, was one who
claimed acquaintance with me, reminding
me thai* I know him. I, of course, replied
that I had uot that honor.
"Ah, my lady," he said, with what was
meant for a sentimental Bmile, "the months
come and go, and purhaps it is a surprise to
each of us lo meet tbo other. My name,"
he added rubbing his bands, "is Jenkins,

For the growing discrimination Againat
Canadian labor iu the United Statea
there is the excuse that work ia scarce.
In a time of so great industrial stagnation
as there now is in that country, it is not
surprising to find domestic labor doing all
it can to reduce tbe competition for wages.
In New York State the unions seem to have
been particularly busy and successful in tho
war Against Canadian workmen. A representative of that State got through Congress
a hill, forbidding vessel owners to employ
any but American citizens on their boats.
This was aimed directly At that large body
of Canadians who find service ovory seAsnn
on the lake vessels of the United States.
The vessel owners of the Stale of New
Vork met the unions more than half way,
shortly After tho bill wus introduced.
The LegisUture of lhe same State passed a
bill requiring that io all the public works
of the State only citizens should lie employed. Thn other day the street railway
oompany of Ruffalo hail to discharge its
Canadian hands iu order lo obtain a grant
of right of way in the oity. In that city,
aud in other cities of the State local labor
is following up a strong an ti-Canadian
campaign. In Chioago, also, tbe labor
organizations are not so tolerant of Canadian competition as they were. The large
proportion of Canadians working in the
street railway service of that city was the
cause of groat dissatisfaction to some of tho
members of the City Council. Re cent ad
ministration of the Alien Labor Act at
certain points on the border has made that
measure as restrictive and harassing as
ingenuity can make it. Canadians who first
go across And obtain situations, And then
aftet wards return for their tools, ere treated
as violators of the Act, And deporled. No
thing is left undone that can possibly lie done
by organized labor to bar out Canadian
labor. Any advantage that domestic
labor obtaina it will not be likely to relinquish in better times. In the immigration
taws, the Alien Labor Act, and the Chinese
Exclusion laws, it haa
to some extent against the cheap labor of
the Old World. The more numerous the
laborers the more the trusts could depress
wages and enlarge their s'jare of the proceeds of labor and capital. The labor
interest soon found it had to go in for protection on ita own particular Account,
It haa not got yet to the point of absolute
exclua'on, but itis making fair progress in
that direction. Canadian labour comes
from a socially healthy country. It commands employment, generally because of
its superiority, not because of its cheapness.
It is not surprising that the unions want
to get the Statea purged of it.

of interviewing the war office authorities
and begging for an increase iu his pension,
which for nearly a quarter of a century
has amounted to *2"> cents per day. According to the official documents he was drafted
into military service in 1810, and when
eighteen years of age he was sent to joiu
the German legion, which was specially
assigned to prevent Napoleon's escape into
Germany. He afterwards joined the army
as a regular soldier, and took part in numerous engagements under Lord Cough, Sir

Kach oat ia a well-grown sample should bo

agaiu, the hard pressure on an oat should

when pressed between the teeth, should
leave littio nr no mark. The skin should

If Daisy could have known what thiB little girt was thinking about her, ahe would

The Piece the Shah Liked.

lato Kmperor of IJermony somo years ago,
was taken  to  the   opera,   and during tho
course of tho performance was asked linn

majority of it was pretty crude, but that
ono piece the orchestra had just beon
playing was simply superb. The Emperor
j ut once gavo orders for the repetition of
j the piece.
"No," said   ttie Shah, " that's  nnt it,"
Another one was played.   "No," returned tho royal visitor, " it's not that either."
Presontly   the orchestra  began   to lune
their instruments,
" That's it I" cried tho Shah, enthusiastically. '" That's lbs piece I was trying
to tell you about 1"
So, for tbo edification of thia barbaric

and retimed their instruments in the most
heartrending fashion, and the Shah leaned back in bis chair, while his face wore a

So far the investigations made have revealed four cases in which it is known
that children were wilfully neglected after
having been insured. But there are over a-
dozen others which are suspected of a
similar course. Iu a leport ou the matter
tho chief sanitary officer aays:
"In several cases of diphtheria which
have come to my notice I have discovered
the most shameful neglect on the part of
the parents of the patients. On inquiry in
these cases I have found that the lives of
the children have been insured in a company which makes a specialty of this business, and I am forced to thu belief that
tbey were neglected and that innocent*
livea were sacrificed to au insatiable greed
tor gain."
He adds that to thia cause may be as-
cribed to a considerable extent the failure
of the board of health to stamp out the
spread of diphtheria, whicli threatened to
become epidemic   here a few mouths ago.
The cases reported huveal) been among the
poor, and one family wus being supplied
wiih food by tbe authorities and still man
aged to keep up its assessments to tbe in
surance company. The cases are such that
the law cannot reach tbem. W bile there is a
moral certainty of guilt, the lack of direct
proof is such that if there wore a law to
cover the matter the guilty ones could
scarcely be convicted,
A Reilleil   Pol |<\r  lu  Break up   l.iirije IN-
lAies-A Provision for Itrliuii fti-ltlenient-
It is the settled policy of the New Zealand
Government to break up large estates. If
the owner of an estate objects to tho high
value put upon his land by tbo assessor,
be is allowed to name his own valuation.
If the government thinks Iub valuation too
low it gives him the option of consenting
to pay taxes ou tbe Government valuation,
or selling hia land to the Government at
his own valuation. While it thus discourages large estates, the New Zealand Government encourages small holdings in a
very positive way. A prominent example
of this ie the well-known provision for
village settlements. The Government sets
asido land for this purpose, undwoi-kingmon
are encouraged to go in communities and
settle upon it. Thc Government even
advances small sums for the purpose of
enabling settlors to profitably occupy their
land, and no rent is charged for tho first
two yeara. Moreover, settlers are directed
to districts whore ��, ork is obtainable,
bo that they can support themselves whilo
getting their farms in order, and can sup
plemeut their income from land by wages.
Such settlements are divided into village
allotments of not more than an aoro oach,
and homeatead allotments not exceeding KH)
acres each. The former class can be held
under any kind of tonuro desired. Homo-
stead allotments arc leased only in perpetuity at a four per coot, yearly rental on the
vttlire of the land. Theae villago settlements
have lieen a great succob, both in the point
of numbers who have taken advantage of
the provision and in the revenue afforded
the Government, not to mention the relief
given to congested city districts. Recent
figures show that -2,(177 acres have been
thus aet apart, and advances of ��-24,625
made by tho Government to settlers. The
social effects of these settlements can hardly lie exaggerated.

A Tacoma despatch says ������A flock of
wild geese, three or four hnndrod(iii passing
over tho city the other night al 11 o'clock on
theirmigrat inn north ward,became attracted
by the o'ectrio arc lights and alighted ou C
street near Tenth. The geeae were blinded
by Ibe flare and brilliancy of lho ligbtH and
ran about the street wildly, making the
most discordant noises imaginable. Many of
the birds, after alighting, attempted to rise
again, but came iu contact with tlie telephone, electric light urn', telegruph wires
overhead, and some of thom were killed hy
tho violence of the shock,
The geese had evidently been (coding
well,for lhey were of tremendous si-Mi, luRie
of them stand ing three feet high mid
weighing ai least75 pounda. They fluttered
about the itreoU, dashed into the pavements and buildings, knocking themselves
senseless.    They were lying ahoul Iwo and
t hi deep in a state uf blissful coma, while
those that wore able to run around, were
chased by lhe boys, men and women, who
hapjencd to be on the street at that hour,
The unusual appearance of the birds at.
traded a largo crowd.
Several holol clerks joined iu the sport,
and although ono goose was all that each
mnn cared to carry, iu a remarkably abort
space of lime thirteen huge, fat,hints were
piled up in a corner of Tho Tacoma hotel
whoro they were later distributed among
the employees, It is estimated that at
least 230 of the goeso were captured and
carried away.

Breckenridge's Case.
The Wellington Weekly News spenk-
mg nf thc political contest in which Col.
"The chances now are that he will be re-
t-lecied because he has been so roundly
abused and is beginning to be looked upon as a martyr. It never pays to go too
fur in such matters, as the opponents of
Hreckenridge will probably discover be
fore they get through with the canvass."
We are aware that this is .1 common view
of tbe subject but we believe it is nevertheless a superficial one. In the first
place when a man is running for office,
in determining his fitness his moral character must be taken into consideration.
In the case of Col. Hreckenridge a jury
of his countrymen declared bim guilty of
a crime against society which morally un
lilted him to be a representative of the
people. It is not abuse to hold up the
record which lie bad made before the
people. It was on his private record,
not publi*", that Parnell was tlrvien from
public life, and tbe same cause forced
Sir Charles Dilk to retire for a season,
from the public service. If Col.
Hreckenridge is re-elected, it will be
because the majority of thfi people in this
district prefer such a man, and have not
the virtue to reject him.
We understand that Mr. S. Creech
claims that the figures given
last week as the cost of two and one
fouith miles of new road through the forest were far t-io high. Well, we do not
know, we only gave the figures which
were furnished us in good faith. We are
informed that the corduroy work was
omitted, but this will have to be done
before the road will be fit to use. Anyone can sec that such a road would ncc.
cssarily cost a good deal of money. And
for what use? And why, as it was specially for thc benefit of Mr. Creech and
his brother, were not the calls for tenders
given the usually publicity? Of course
Mr. Creech and his brother are entitled
to have the public money spent for them
a* well as for other people, but it ts not
right that they should be the sole judges
of what shall be expended for their benefit, nor ts it proper that in such a matter
there should be less than the usual notice given to the public.
We are creditably informed that the
Government agent allowed Mr. Rabson
$150 extras on his bridge contract. It
is said that the measurement of the
stream was wrong, and that the contract
railed for one too short to span the stream
If such be the case Mr. Rabson was clear
ly entitled to extra for building a bridge
longer than the one called for. But there
i-i no excuse for such blundering. We
understand the Rood Boss was not called upon in the matter of measurement
or passing upon the work, but thai tlie
Lands and Works Office and the Government agent arc responsible.

From Montreal Riar.
The atiitude of Great Britain towards
Canada on lhe question of Canadian rights
in IJchring Sea was an object lesson on
the value of liritish connection, which
came home to the hearts and minds of
every* loyal Canadian. The United
States claimed exclusive authority in that
important body of water. They seized
Canadian fishiny vessel'., their crews and
cargoes, confiscated the cargoes and vessels and imprisoned tbe officers nnd men
breaking up lhe voyages and practically
destroying lhe fishery for Canadians,
Canada laid her grievance before the
Government of Great Britain and made
out so strong a case thai llie Imperial
authorities took it up, antl (Ireat Britain
had assumed the attitude of defender of
Canadian rights, her deplomats made as
vigorous a light for those rights as could
lie desired. Great Britain put herself into the place 'if Canada, and her influence
compelled the United Slates to submit
lo nn international arbitration as the alternate to war. I lad Canada been an independent nation with her 5,000.000 of
people without an army nr Buet worthy
nf name, with nearly 3000 miles of an imaginary boundary line separating us (or
rather not separating us) from our mighty neighbor, what influence could she
have exerted to change the aggressive
attitude of the United States with their
65,000,000 of people, their (leet ready for
action, and their ability to place large
armies at short notice on Canadian soil?
From Wellington News.
An attempt is being made to organize
a baseball club in Welliugton with very
encouraging prospects. There is sufficient material of the desired quality to
make a good team and we trust the matter may materialize.
A new lodge of I, O. O. F. will be instituted in Wellington on Wednesday
evening next by Bro. Past Grand Master J. Cross-in of Black Diamond Lodge,
No. 3. It starts out with a membership
of nearly one hundred, and having already one lodge denotes the popularity
of the order here.
Gold has been discovered at Franklin
creek, three miles south of China creek.
Samples of excellent gold bearing black
sand were brought down recently. W.
Pool and H. McCoy, of Victoria, were
the first to locate what promises to be
very rich placer diggings.
Trade is ver\ dull in the mines at present, none of the--hafts running near full
lime. There is, however, every indication of .1 speedy recovery.
The swimming platform placed in po-
s'ltinn by some of our citizens is being
well patronised these evenings, and is
much appreciated by bathers.
Messrs Archie Sharp and John Bernard returned lo Wellington from ihe
Old Country this week after an absence
of three months. Their appearance indicates that the trip agreed with tin in,
and they return with renewed energy.
Mr. Sharp joined the Benedict at my
while away, but owing to the illness ol
his mother in-law, his wife was unable to
accompany bim.
From Western Advocate
This much abused, much pitied and
always underrated individual is just now
enjoying an inning of his own, as the
baseball men say. Whilst the merchant
the professional man and the speculator
are at their wits end to make both ends
meet, the fanner was never in better
shape in his life. Once in a while he is
hoodwinked into the populist ranks and
tunes his voice in unison with the calamity howlers, but he soon gets tired of
ibis kind of a song with his bountiful
crops and high-priced stock. These vocal gymnastics, probably, are his way of
getting rid of surplus steam, which otherwise might lead him into unprofitable
schemes were it not foi this safety valve.
Tlie farmer has every reason to be
proud of his achievements and proud of
his country. This is thc farmer's country, and nine-tenths of thc really great
men of lhe nation were once bare-footed
farmer boys, did chores, hoed corn and
held the plow.
Thev learned self reliance, courage and
industry under the blazing sun and in
the pure air of the fields. The cities
breed anarchists, thugs and fire bugs,
whilst thc farm produces the statesmen,
jurists and divines. The cities have
nouses, the country has homes. The
city has wealth the country has cash.
The city man is a consumer, the farmer
is a producer of wealth, and is rich in
day's works which are the foundation of
all weihh. The farmer has emancipated
himself from drudgery and is surrounding himself with ihe comforts of home.
This condition begets new tastes and
new desires. These altered conditions
are fast making the farmer a buyer as
well as a seller. With cash, taste
and awaked amb'tion to assume his prop
er place, the farmer bids fair lo be a lead
ing factor as a purchaser of retail commodities.
From Vancouver World.
Paul Pioneer Press wants to know
what is the difterence between the crime
of the miscreant who flung a death-dealing bomb in the midst of the deputies,
and the crimes of the miscreants who
wantonly wrecked a train at Battle Creek
killing a fireman and mangling several
others; who caused a train at Oakland
loaded with soldiers, to tumble through a
bridge, carrying ihem down to a horrible
death, and who have been attempting to
blow up trains with dynamite or to wreck
them in various ways on the Northern
Pacific and other railroads with the same
purpose ot killing a lot of innocent people who had never done them any wrong?
There is no difference. The crimes perpetrated in the one case are-as cowardly,
as atrocious, as damnable as in the other.
Both are inspired by the same motive-
to inspire terror, and the secret society
which breeds this hideous spawn of assassins on this continent must be held
responsible with its European prototype
for instigating these villianies, and equally subject to the execration of mankind.

What is an Insurance Sale?
So many people ask the question.   We shall explain:	
After the late disasterous fire in Nanaimo the Insurance Companies cancelled a large number of policies in some blocks. We
have just 810,000,00 to place just at present in any other Company.
Now we cannot afford to carry over large stock without sufficient insurance Consequently we are compelled to unload. To do
this quickly we have put the prices lower on everything in our immense stock���than Dry Goods have ever been bought before���less
than cost in nearly every instance. See price lists which we have
sent out.
