BaboklosA, Nov. 8. ���Two bombs loaded
with dynamite were thrown from the gallery of the Lyoi uni Opera House last night,
while a performance was going on. One of
them exploded on striking the lloor, with a
terrific report. The audience iprarg in
terror and dismay. Wild shrieks and cries
of agony rove from the lower part of the
house. The wildest kind of confusion prevailed. Many men wii.h their faces pale with
fright abandoned the ladies they had escorted
and made desperate rush"* for the <\\- t,
knocking down and tramp ing those in the
way without regard to age or sex. The
floor Peats in the vicinity of tin; place where
the bomb exploded were wrecked. It is
reported that fifteen were killed and the
number injured is large. Two Known
anarchists weie arrested iu the gallery
When the news became known populace
surrounded thu opera house and dooouuood
anarchists and police. Among the killed
is an American gentleman, and a wealthy
German and his wife. The American
accompanied him to the performance. His
wife is injured hui not aware of her husband's death.
During the morning several of the persons
wounded dud from the effects of their injuries. At the time this despatch is sent
(12 noon) the dead number 232 It is
thought likely that others of wound(d will
die. All the men arrestul on suspicion of
being the authors of the tragedy have
proved to the satisfaction of the police that
they Hud nothing to do with it. It is feared
that the miscreants wiio committed the

Another Railroad Horror.
ChiOAQO, III , Nov. 8. ��� By a n ar collision
on the Chicugo Ruck I ������land and Pactic
Railway this evening at 71*1 street which
three persons were killed and eleven injured.
Passenger train No. II, known as the
"Linil>ed Veetibuled express" crashed into
the rear end of a Blue Island accomodation,
badly wrecking two couches and the engine.
The following is a ist of the injured:
D. M. Suow, I.ongwood, internal injuries, will die; dames W. (!>ady, South

burned. The truins left on time this evening. The accommodation stopped ut 71st
street to receive and let oil passengers,
(���lose behird it was the limited express,
bearing down on it at the rale of twenty
miles an hour. A heavy fog settled over
tho city early iu the evening, and it was
almost impossible, trainmen said, to discern
signal lights. The engine of the express
train ploughed its way into the rear coich
of the accommodation, being forced
between the two sides like a wedge.
The car was 'picked up and carritd
forward, so great was the momentum and
was driven with terriflo foice Into the end
of the second coach from the rear. The explosion of a lamp ignited the woodwork in
the debris anil the lire soon began to spread
at a lively rate.
CHIOAQO, Nov. 8���As soon aa the llames
burst forih they were seen by a dozen people who hasti ned to give an alarm. The
tire was preceded by a very little smoke and
before the first engine arrived it had gained
a lively headway, Buvoral engines responded
to the alarm and the bla/.e was soon ex-
tingu shed. The removal of the dead anil
woui ded hail been commenced beforo the
detail of police arrived. Encouragement
07M lent the rescuers by the grosnsofthe
dying and a loud cry for help from the
inuiined. Two nun were found lying ouc on
top of the other. Across them was u heavy
pitce of timber, and one of the under stip-
poitsof the real pa.-scnger coach. They
were the first to bo Ukcu out and as they
were carried to one side other willing hands
pushed forward to renew the sonic1'. Added
to the horrors of tho scene, with its pile of
debris and crackling timbers, as the sound
of escaping steam. The engine attached to
the limited BXpTtM had been partly demolished, and pouring from one ot its escupe
pipes was a constant stream of scalding
vapor. This inude the woik of rescue si
most an impossih:lity at times.
I.'st of dead: W. C. Carpenter, Washington Heights; Mrs. Aubrey, Blue Island;
Minnie Seaefer, Beverloy Hills; Cirrie
Barnes, Washington Heights; William Boar-
man, Auburn l'ark.
The pasuiigci.-. in the rear coach of the
suburban train hrd little warning of their
danger. Several peoplo had alighted when
the accommodeation stopped at the Kggl-
stone depot, abou*. 300 feet south of 71ft
street and the train had been started again.
It is now thought that it was moving at a
grrater rate of speed than from 2 to .'! miles
and hour. Suddenly those sitting in the rear
of t be last coach saw a flash and this was
the first intimation which they had of the
approaching express.    The headlight of the

Cloudy days preferred for sittings.
Kngine of the latter shone but dimly through
t he fog laden atmospoere, but s -xerul people
saw it a few seconds before the crash came.
I They sprung from their siats, but they had
lurdly stepped into the aisle of the car when
the crash came. The first train was moving
at the rate if 2 or 3 milea an hour, while
the veBtihuled engineer believing that

b uised and Dickerman's left arm scalded
by escaping steam. They were able, how-
] ever, to crawl out. The little waiting
room in the Btnall Egglestone depot was
��� iuickly turned into a hospital, but the
greatest difficulty existed iu getting phyai-
; cians. Finally, howeve, five doctors put in
an : ppearanco and went to work. Tho
victim , iu every Btaie of suffering, lay
aboii' the lloor so thickly that it was im-
possib'e to walk wilhou stepping over some
Buffering'One. In a corner covered with a
sheet' startling in its whi'eness when contrasted with ihe surroundings, lay K. J.
Brady of Tracey Park, badly scalded
and uniting from beneath the covering for his funily doctor. Aged and
inlirin F. H. Snow of Englewood,
internally hurt, lay across the body ef a
middle nged woman, who died after she had
been deposited on the lloor. Mr*. Keyruser,
of Washington Heiglns, scalded almost to
ib at h, bore heroically her tortures, occasionally aallinn for her husband and family.
Ai rapidly as possible the victims had their
wounds dressed. Ambulances and patrol
wagons had been siimmnucd by Captain
Altiich from the suriounding stations, and
the unfortuuats were removed to the hospitals.

Employers' Liability Bill-Possibility of
tho Government Being Deserted.
London,  Nov.  8.���Few members   were
lbsent  from the House of   Commons   this
afternoon.     The   motion   to   consider   the
Employers' Liability Bill, which was amended  in  the  standing committee,   was  to be
debated, and it was thought possible  that
the   Government   might   be  deserted on a
motion  to   recommit  the  hill   to the committee of the whole   House.    The   proceedings, however, were exceptionally uneventful     The   bill   in   question is intended  to
l increase     and     make     sure     the   claims
. of     workingme i      upon      employers      in
whose   service   they  are   injured.    Walter
McLiren, Radical for the C''etve  division of
Chcohire moved   the   amendment   in which
j the Minister's peril   it   there be any is sup-
I posed to lie.    His proposal  was  that workmen under certain conditions  should be enabled to exempt themselves hy contra it from
i the provisions of the law,   notably wherever
| their interests   were   assured   by   fund* to
I which   the   employers   contributed.      The
��� Government   opposed   this   amendment  as
mainly Conservatives supported it, The debate was adjourned.
John Morley Saya the Government Will
Resist tho Poors' Veto.
LONDON, Nov. 8.���John Morley Chief
Secretary for Ireland apoke at the Free
Trade hall in Manchester, this evening
beforo a large and sympathetic audience. He
made a general defense of the Government's
p ilicy. The mini-.Urn lies.id did not intend
to 80^ out a caBt iron plan for dealing with
Matabelc until thi y should receive proper
information i n which to buss their policy.
They had tr^ed fioni the outset to preserve
peace because ''Unholy was the voioe of
thanksgiving over the slaughtered men". Sir
Henry Lock Governor of Cape Colony would
s'nd for the Governments approval or disap
pi oval any proposal which should be made
for a settlement of the South Afiican trouble,
The Government would not whittle from the
Home Kulc Bill or any other bill oue iota
but would stand shoulder to shoulder to
relist to the uttermost the irresponsible veto
ot the non-representative chamber. Undoubtedly a great Blraiu would be placed
now upon the Irish members by the pressure
of British legislation but thu IiUo might
rest assured that it was tho persevering intention of the Liberal party to meet their
demands. If there should he any paying
fust and loose with the Home Rule question
the Liberal parly would stiller a split greater
than that of 1880,

A Clever English Writer Gives His Epigrammatic Views on Marriage.
A correspondence has been opened in
the pages of the Daily Telegraph on
the vexed question of marriage in general, and of English wives in particular,
says "The Linkman" in London Truth.
As a bachelor my experience of wives
���in the plural���is extensive, and it is
the more desirable, therefore, that I
should contribute my share towards
the discussion. I have tried to condense
the views which I hold upon this subject, and the more important of these
���will be found in the following distorted
proverbs of I'all Mall:
Marrying is believing.
Two's matrimony and three's divorce.
Divorce, is the mother-in-law of invention.
A little matrimony goes a long way.
Infidelity begins at home.
'  Put not all your lovers in one basket.
Everything has an end���marriage has
To marry is human, to divorce is divine.
Set a wife to catch a wife.
A "smart" lover covers a multitude
of sins.
Matrimony breeds contempt.
A lover in time saves nine.
You must go to the divorce court to
hear what news at your home.
When the lover preaches beware of
.your wife.
When a woman falls every man calls.
Wives of a feather Hock together.
Every "smart" woman has her day in
the box.
Home rule often insures peace with
Where there's a wife there's a way to
the court.
A divorcing man will catch at a straw.
It is easy to marry down hill.
Wifej life and strife rhyme together,
Lilt there is very little reason In either.
Marriage is paved with good adventures.
What matrimony conceals divorce re-
There are none so wived as those that
will not marry.
Fine friends make fast wives.
Some men marry because they are
young, some because they are old,
some because they are busy, others because they have nothing to do. There
is but one valid excuse for marrying���
.because you want to.
Gotham llelles Now Glvo  I'arilcs on the
Evo of Their Harrluge.
It is customary for young bachelors
about to marry to gather about them a
few of their most intimate male friends
and give a bachelor dinner. There is
something jolly about it all. His
friends dine and wine with him and
drink his very good health and that of
his family. He is not going out of life.
He is going into a more blissful, living
existence, and will be respectable. Hut
a New York paper is telling of a lot of
girls who bury their single blessedness,
having a funeral aud going into mourning. A short time ago a Fifth avenue
belle introduced to her friends a "fad"
that promises to become as popular as it
is peculiar. Her girl friends were surprised one day to receive from her cards
with heavy mourning borders inviting
them to her home, and asking them to
appear in mourning. As there had been
no death in the family, and the young
woman was to have been married in a
few days to what was considered a most
desirable "catch," her form of invitation
surprised most of her friends, and for
that reason many of the persons invited
went to the house. The parlor was
darkened. On the center table the
guests noticed a small casket. When
the hostess entered she went to the
table and said: "Friends, I have asked
you here to-day to witness the burial of
my old identity. You know 1 am to be
married in a few days. In this casket
I have placed my card, which I intend
to bury, with you as witnesses. Thus I
will bury my identity in that of my
future husband." Already three or four
such ceremonies have been performed
in Fifth avenue mansions. This will do
for a fad; but in the case of such a girl
there is always a chance that she will
dig up her identity and have some good
old times with her good old girl friends.
A jolly dinner, in any ease, is better
than a funeral, and it is better for people about to be married.
Itiioiiting- Umls. '
The mechanism of the leg and foot of
a chicken orother bird that roosts on a
limb is a marvel of design. It often
seems strange that a bird will sit on a
roost and sleepall night without falling
.off, but the explanation is perfectly
simple. The tendon of the leg of a bird
that roosts is so arranged that when
the leg is bent at the knee the claws
.are bound to contract, and thus hold
with a sort of death grip the limb
round which they are placed. Put a
chicken's feet on your wrist and then
make the bird sit down and you will
have a practical illustration on your
skin that you will remember for some
time. By this singular arrangement,
seen only in such birds as roost, they
will rest comfortably and never think
of holding on, for it is impossible for
them to let go till they stand up.
The Government's Exhibit at the
World's Fair.
An Interesting Feature of the Great Exposition    Which    Will    ltecome
.a   Permanent   Institution.
The life-saving bureau of the treasury department will be represented at
the World's Columbian exposition at
Chicago by a life-saving station and apparatus that will show to perfection
this humane feature of the federal government. The most essential featnre
of the exhibit, the station itself, is rapidly nearing completion on the lake
front within the space to be dedicated
to the exposition. The station vviLl be
fully equipped with all the apparatus
pertaining to a first-class lake life-saving
station, and besides the articles used in
work on the great lakes it will have on
exhibition boats of the styles used on
the Atlantic and Pacific coasts and on
the falls of the Ohio at Louisville, with
such other apparatus as is peculiar to
the work in any part of the United
States. For instance, at Louisville two
life skiffs and two reels are used, this
apparatus being in use nowhere else.
The station will be manned by one of
the regular life saving crews, who will
perform a dally drill, and it may be
that some of the visitors will have an
opportunity to observe the work as it. is
actually performed iu storms, for the
station is erected on one of the most
dangerous parts of the coast in the
vicinity of Chicago. The station apparatus and crew are there not only for
exhibition, but fur business whenever
any vessel needs assistance.
The station is to be a permanent one
when the exposition is over. The government was not able to secure a satisfactory title to the site of the present
Chicago hie saving station; and in the
last sundry civil appropriation bill, congress inserted a proviso that a new station should be erected within the
grounds set apart for the world's fair,
on condition, however, that there
must first be ceded to the United Slates
the title to the site selected.
The bureau obtained a gold medal for
its exhibit at the fish and fisheries exhibit in London, where it simply showed
its apparatus and did not attempt to
put it in operation. Superintendent Kimball is willing to put the American system into a competitive test with that
used in any other country. The medals
and awards received will be plaited on
exhibition and also some apparatus
showing the progress of life saving invention. Side by side will be shown
a modern Lyle gun for throwing a succoring line to the crew of a distressed
vessel and the old-style mortar which
was used when this method of saving
life was first adopted. The bureau has
in its possession the first mortar and
first ball ever used in America in life-
saving work. About thirty years ago it
was used to throw a line to the crew of
the British ship Ayrshire in danger of
going on Squan Beach, N. J. The ball
struck the deck and carried the line to
the passengers and crew. Hy means of
the life line 'JO I persons were saved out
of a total of 222 persons on board. The
ship sank and the ball went to the bottom. About twenty years afterward,
through the working of the waves the
ball was brought to view again ana
sent to the life-saving bureau.
Many People Have Been Prepared for
Muriel In France While Tot Alive.
A Paris physician is the authority for
the statement that at least forty persons are annually prepared for burial
in France while still alive, and he adds
that he includes only cases where the
dead were fortunate enough to awaken
before interment. Assuming the number actually buried alive to be equal to
those who awoke from their somnolence
in time to avert such a fearful doom, it
will be perceived that were the American system of hasty embalming in
vogue there the undertakers would
"fix"���another name for murder���
eighty persons every year in that one
country. ��_
and especially when he's drunk as well,
he's pretty sure to breathe as nature intended him to, sir, and that's through
his nose. All you have to do then, sir,
is to pinch his nose, shut off his wind,
and up he comes with a snort. It's a
good deal more human, sir, than the
bastinado, and I always apply it, sir."
Great Commercial Possibilities Before the
American Kepubllc.
The great waterways of this country
are capable of a wonderful growth and
improvement. The recent disasters
upon the Mississippi should be guarded
against as much as circumstances will
And speaking of the Mississippi, the
day is not far distant when its northern
arm will be connected with our inland
oceans and a ship may sail from New
Orleans to Chicago. Then will come
the Nicaragua canal, by which that
same vessel may proceed directly into
the Pacific and down the western coast
of South America.
There is no doubt, says the New York
Ledger, that a ship canal will be cut
from the lakes to tho Atlantic. Congress has already been asked to provide
for surveys and make estimates, and
when Brother Jonathan gets so far, the
end is assured. Canada is enlarging
those waterways which would admit
British war vessels from the St. Lawrence river to these lakes, and at present we have no avenue of approach.
Under these conditions, in a few years
from date, the grayhounds of the ocean
will traverse lakes Erie, Huron, Michigan and Superior, anchoring in Chicago
and Duluth. A direct connection, via
the enlarged Erie canal and the Hudson
river, will open up another stream for
traffic to New York. Talk of shipbuilding and revived maritime interests!
What will one behold who lives another
fifty years? That not only railways but
naval supremacy belongs to this republic. And that supremacy will entail a
commercial importance which to-day is
only feebly shadowed.
California's Stirring  Military  Production
of the Tragedy of Borneo and* Juliet.
The first theatrical performance
given in California was in a low one-
story adobe building on the corner of
Pacific and Scott streets, Monterey,
lately owned by John A. Swan, a pioneer ol 1S43.
The play was "Romeo and Juliet,"
John Phoenix (Lieut. Derby) essaying
the character of the lover, and a woman weighing two hundred aud forty
pounds, the wife of Sergt llolcomb,
playing the part of Juliet. The date
of the play was January 1, 1S48. Mrs.
llolcomb had studied her part industriously, but Derby turned the balcony
scene into a roaring farce. J. Bank-
bead Magruder, colonel of the Third
artillery, was the Mercutio, and Capt.
Burton, U, S. A., was Friar Lawrence.
Gen., then Lieut. Armisteud, who
was killed at Gettysburg, acted as
The second performance was "Ilam-
let," ''Phoenix" playing the part of the
melancholy Dane and Magruder the
Ghost. The Ghost had been dining
with Senors Alvarado and Arguello,
and had partaken of aguardiente and
native wine so cordially that his utterances were more spirituous than sepulchral, and he nearly spoiled Ophelia's
flower scene, too, by coming in and
presenting Laertes' afflicted sister with
a bouquet of cabbage heads. Fourteen
of the auditors upon these two occasions became general officers during the
war of the rebellion, among whom were
Kearny, Magruder, Hurton, Mason,
Armistead, Stoneman, Reynolds.*
Tho ringer of a Dead Man Supposed to
llrlng Fortune.
The pearl hunters of Borneo and adjacent islands have a peculiar superstition. When engaged in opening shells
in search of pearls they take every
ninth find, whether it be large or small,
and put it into a bottle which is kept
tightly corked with a dead man's
The pearls thus kept, says American
Notes and Queries, are known as "seed
pearls" or "breeding pearls," the
natives of all the islands mentioned
firmly believing that they will reproduce their kind. For every pearl put
into the phial two grains of rice are put
in for the pearls to "feed" upon.
Some whites in Borneo believe as
firmly in the superstition as the natives
do, and almost every hut along the coast
has its "dead finger" bottle with from
nine to fifty "seed pearls," and twice
that number of rice grains carefully
and evenly stowed away among them.
Prof. Kimmerly says that nearly all
the burial places along the coast have
been desecrated by "pearl breeders" in
search of corks for their bottles.
A Wonderful Clock.
The most marvelous of clocks has
been built by a Block Forest maker and
sold for four thousand dollars. Hesides
doing everything that most clocks do in
the matter of time and calendar, it
shows the time in Uerlin, St. Petersburg, Madeira, Shanghai, Calcutta,
Montreal, San Francisco, Melbourne,
and Greenwich Every evening at eight
a young man invites the company to
vespers in the electrically illuminated
chapel where a young woman plays the
"Maiden's Prayer." On New Year's
eve two trumpeters announce the flight
of the old year and the advent of the
new. In May a cuckoo comes out; in
June a quail; in October a pheasant appears to be shot down by a typical
llritish sportsman who proceeds to bag
his game. At daybreak the sun rises
and some bells play a German air entitled: "Phcabus Awakes." On the
night of the full moon they play another German air entitled: "Sweet and
Tranquil Luna." There are other features too numerous to mention.
The Humane Method Employed by a New
York Patrolman.
A drunkard was sleeping off his potations in a Third avenue hallway, when
a patrolman espied his protruding legs.
He didn't begin to pound the rather
thin soles of the poor fellow's worn
shoes, as is the custom of the park keepers in dealing with sleeping tramps on
the benches. He reached over and
grasped the sleeper by the nose, and the
fellow was on his feet in an instant.
"You must have tweaked it pretty
hard," suggested a witness of the incident.
"Not a bit, sir," he replied. "I didn't
hurt him at all. You see, sir, barring
the lungs the nose is the principal organ
of respiration, and the lungs, sir,
wouldn't have much to do if it wasn't
for the nose.    When a man's asleep,
' Beautiful Italian Women.
"The prettiest women in the world
are those of northern Italy," said a St.
Louisian, who has just completed a trip
around the world. "Pretty is not exactly the word to be used in describing
them. A wax doll may be pretty. The
women of northern Italy are gloriously,
maddeningly beautiful. They are a
mixture of the French gentry and the
Old Italian nobility, and inherit the
vivacity of one country and the voluptuous, half oriental beauty of the
other. If you want to understand
what the poet meant by the 'dark
eyes' splendor' go not to the Vale
of Cashmere, not to Cadiz, but to
Milan. Greece in her palmiest days
could not produce such perfect figures,
nor Spain such coquettes. Add to' unrivaled beauty of face and figure the
sweet cadences of the Italian tongue,
and I defy any youngster to get away
from Milan without regret Some one
has said that Italian is the mother
tongue of the Goddess of Love; certainly there is nothing sweeter���it is mi>i��
dy itself."
Ice Made with Gas.
A Canadian living at International
Bridge, Ontario, makes a remarkable
announcement; he has discovered a
method of making artificial ice by the
use of common illuminating gas. After
use the gas may be returned to the
mains, uninjured as far as its illuminating qualities are concerned, not being
deteriorated in the least. Experiments
made at the gas plant at International
Hridge gave a temperature of eighty degrees below zero���this with the use of
gas and water alone���no chemicals of
any kind having been added to the solution.

On His Return.
Yesterday Messrs. Simpson and Simpson,
llarriBters, received a telegram from Mr.
Thos. Kitchen, now in London, announcing
his intention of at once returning to Nanaimo with plenty of funds at his disposal to
meet any claims which may be legitimately
owing by tiiin. When the announcement
was mudu some time ago that Mr. Kitchen
had left tho city mora abruptly than bust-
nesa men usually do there wers tho Utna]
number of .scandalmongers aud tongue Waggon whose hardest work iB to speak kindly
of any man and more especially about one
whose fortunes had met with slight reverses.
On the other hand there wore many in
Nanaimo who thought differently of Mr.
Kitchen and who spoke well and kindly of
him as one who was only gone for a time and
who would assuredly return and do the
"right thing" so to speak. Mr. Kitchen
had many believers, more than the average,
in his honesty and uprightedness of character and it must be a great source of satisfaction to them to hear that Mr. Kitchen will
be amongst them Bgain and fearlessly meet
Mb traducers face to face. The best thing
this Utter class can do is to make the amende
honorable not in a half hearted unmanly way
but in a manner commensurate with Mr.
Kitchen's conduct to those to whom he is
AppUoants must state experience and salary required, ami appil>sttons muso be sent In not later
