ROSEBERY ROMANCE
IA   CURIOUS   ANNAL   OF   THE   PRIMROSE   FAMILY.
The Prime Minister's Great Grand Unole
Was Married to a Married Woman
and Didn't Know It���A Roofer in
Chioago has a Narrow Escape of His
Life ��� Horrible Outrage in Indiana.
A Man Who Said He Waa King of
Seattle ��� Settlers in Manitoba.
London, March 24.���James, the second
Earl of Rosebery, had a bod, Lord Dalmeny,
who married a farmer's daughter, one Kitty
Cannon. Kitty, when Lord Dalmeny met
her, waa married to a clergyman, the Rev.
Mr. Gough, but his lordship was unaware
of the faot, and believed her to be a widow.
So when she eloped with him from a bill in
the neighborhood of Covent Garden he
married her, and went abroad and lived
happily with her, travelling about <he Continent till Lady Dalmeny had an illness
which turned to galloping consumption. A
few In urs before she died she wrote on a
piece of paper, "I am really the wife of the
Rev. Mr, Gough, vicar of Thorpe, near
Colchester, E-sex. My maiden name was
Kitty Cannon, and my family belong to the
same parish.   Bury me there."
It waB a startling death-bed revelation,
but the bereaved "husband" resolved to
carry out the ludy's last wishes. The death
took place in Florence, where Lord Dalmeny
had the body embalmed and put iuto a
beautiful coffin, whioh was enclosed in a
square deal packing-case, whioh concealed
the shape of the contents. He called himself Mr. Williams, *�� merchant, and took his
precious bun hen by laud, as far as Marseilles, where he engaged a vessel to carry
him and his "goods" to Dover. From
Dover he sailed in a unall ooaster for Harwich, whioh was only a few miles from
L'hci'pe. But a storm carried the vessel io
Co Chester, and there the Custom Houae
officers boaided it, and insisted on examining the p.ekingoaae before they would
allow it to be landed. * Mr. Williams "protested," but as the officers were about to
break opeu the case he drew his sword
fiercely, aud stammered out the truth. The
officers shook their heada. Why was Mr.
Williams making such a mystery of his dead
wife? It might be a murder. At any rate
they insisted, and, opening the oase and the
coffin, they satisfied themselves that only
the dead body of a beautiful women lay
within it. Eventually they allowed Mr.
Williams to proceed with the coffin.
' His interview with the real husband was
a painful one, but at last the Rev. Mr.
Gough took a generous view on the situation, and on the day of the funeral Lord
Dalmeny had the procession stopped at the
vioarage. Ho himself went into the house,
and presently returned with the Rev. Mr.
Gough. The two husbands, with scarf and
hat band, arm in arm, followed one wife to
the grave. After all was over Lord Dalmeny went abroad igain, and died three
years later, at the age of 30, on August 11,
1755, a few months beiore the Earl of Rosebery, his father. That is the story of Kitty
Cannon; that is the Rosebery romance. The
new Prime Minister is the great grandaon
of Kitty Cannon's "husband's   brother.
Hanging Over Eternity.
Chicago, March 24.���People in the vicinity of the new grain elevator in process
of erection in South Chicago yesterday
afternoon were horrified to see Joseph
Coates, a carpenter, slip on the roof and
slide rapidly to the edge. Ab he was going
over the edge Coates grabbed a wall plate
with his right hand and hung to it, his body
being suspended at a height of 100 feet,
dates' fellow-workmen were paralyzed with
fright and two of them fainted. Otheia
so.iii recovered t**eir s**u��es and set about in
rescue him. All this time Coatea was crying out to those in sound of his voice to
S'veliim. In ihi course of a few seconds
tlio honor-stricken watchers on the bridge
below saw a man appear at a window and
behind him were aeveral other men. The
first man leaned forward until he seemed as
if he would tumble headlong, but strong
hands put a stout rope about his body and
held him securely while he reached out snd
grasped the man hanging from the wall
platform and eucceeded in getting him to
the window-ledge. Then, with an almost
superhuman effort, brought him through
the window. The rescued man, when he
found himself saved, fell in a dead faint, and
the rescuer, William Jones, another carpenter, collapsed completely. A faint cheer
roached those in the room at the top of the
elevator. Coates, when he was finally revived, was in such a nervous condition that
he had to be assisted home by two of his
fellow workmen.
Settlers for Manitoba.
Winnipeg, Maroh 24.���The first instalment of settlers, 250 in number, have
arrived here yesterday and gone to the
places to which they were directed by their
friends which preceded them. They were
mostly from Eastern Canada.
Mr. Meroler not Heard.
St. Ignace, Que., March 24.���At a meeting held by Mr. Mercier here to-night, he
was not given a hearing, aa it was the feeling of the audience that either independence
or annexation would be injurious to the
Frenoh population.

A Young Father of Twelve.
Montreal, March 24.���Jacques DeLarme,
of St. Denis, Quebec, has just filed his application for the grant of land made to the
father of twelve children, given by the
Quebec Government. What makes his
claim the more remarkable is, that he is 28
years of age and his wife 26. They have
had four pairs of twins aud four single births
all living.   Tney have three children  dead.
A Wealthy Farmer Suloldes.
Palmyra,   Pa.,   Maroh   24.���Mr.   Eben
Stover, a wealthy   farmer   residing   a   few
miles west of here,   committed   suicide   by
shooting himself through the litart.
Imaginary King and Queen.
Seatti.k, Maroh 24.���Emil Kaiser, a
stonecutter, 36 years of age and having a
family, was yesterday committed to the insane asylum by Judge Langley. His disease is the result of a blood disorder of long
standing, but he began aoting queerly about
a week ago. He imagines he is King of Seattle and his wife queen. His fa'her in
Switzerland is also in an asylum.
Spokane Scandals.
Spokane, March 24.���Lizzie Lewis, a 17-
year-old incorrigible girl, who waa confined

of good family.
Sensational developments are prominent

Horrible Outrage.
Osomatamie, Iud., March 24.��� A horrible
occurrence has just been reported from
Poverty ranch, about 20 miles north of here.
A settler, who had taken up land and
erected a house on land which he was led
to believe was open for settlement, was
called to his door by some one unknown,
and was at once bound and compelled to
witnesa his wife submitting to the outrages
of the demons in human shape, and afterwards waa  mutilated in a horrible manner.
No Truth In the Report.
Mrs. Manson, the wife of Mr. Manson,
J.P., of Cmtez island, went down to Vancouver yesterday and came over here last
night. Her story entirely rciutea the report of the body of William McDougall
having been found. It appears that the
body of an Indian woman was takeu to
their place for oonveyance to Vancouver,
and this apparently was the only origin of
the reported finding of the unfortunate
man's body.
We are indebted to Mr. Hilbert for the
information that at the earnest request of
Mrs. Haslam the steamer Esperanza will
leave before we go to press to find the
truth or falsity of the rumors which are
prevalent concerning the finding of the body
of the late Mr. McDougall. Dr. Walkem
and Mr. T. Haslrfm go on the Esperanza as
was stated earlier in tho evening. *

A Hint for Nanaimo.
In the ordinary method of loading coal
from railway cars into ships at Nanaimo a
large amount of breakage is caused aud
clouds of dust are produced by reason of the
coal having to fall a considerable height,
sometimes as much as 24 feet.
With the view of obviating these evils,
which are a source of pecuniary loss. Sir
William T. Lewis, general manager, and
Charles L. Hunter, engineer, of the Bute
docks, Cardiff, Wales, have invented a system of shipping coal by which the greatest
fall ia only five feet, and the mineral is
quietly deposited in the hold of the ship. It
consists iu tipping the ooal from the oars
into a carrying box having a coned valve-
bottom which can be released at will. Theae
boxes hold a 10-ton load of coal each,
and aa they are only about five teet deep it
follows that only a portion of each load has
even that short diatance to fall. As soon
as the carrying-box is rilled it is raised by a
traveling crane worked by hydraulic power,
and lowered into the hold'of the ship. Directly it reaches the bottom tho coned vaivu
is released aud the ooal quietly glides out
with hardly any breakages. Tbe box ia
then raised and transferred to tbe loading
atage for another charge, which is quickly
tipped into it and aa quiokly transferred to
the ship. The system has been adopted by
the Bute Docks Co. at their Roath dock,
where a series of the traveling cranes are at
work on lines of rail extending over 2000 feet
of bulkhead. The cranes are self-propelling, aud are not ouly moveable and pin-
vided with a swing motion of some 40 feet
radius, but alao have a derricking motiou,so
that they can plumb both hate n ways and
coaling pits at will. This derricking motion
also enables the crane man to steer the
loads clear ot" the funnels and rigging ot ihe
vessels. The maximum speed of loading ia
300 tons per hour per crane, and it is stated
that 293 tons of coal have been shipped in
an hour by one craue. With this system as
many as four oranes, each lifting 10 tons of
coal, have been employed simultaneously iu
loading the same vessel, as the cranes can
be brought into suoh positions as to hang
directly over the steamer's hatohways.���
Vanoouver World.
Our Hydraulic Mines.
The following is taken from the Vancouver Daily World and serves to show the
interest that is being taken iu our hydraulic
mines by the enterprising citizens of that
place.
Sergeant Heywood returned yesterday
from tbe Upper country and reports active
mining in various places, many of which are
on an extensive scale. He thinks that the
gold yield in the next five y-ms will equal
the production of 1858 to 1860, as the hydraulic plants now beiug placed are the
latest improved patterns.capable of handling
immense quantities of dirt. The sergeant iu
early days, wasconsideredashrewd speculator
and not afraid to back his judgment by his
capital. He has, therefore, purchased several thousand shares of the Prinoe Albert
Flat Mining Co.'s slock as a result of a prospecting trip to their works near Yale in
company with a friend who has had several
years experience in the hydraulic mines of
California, and who said he never saw a
better prospect coupled with such natural
advantages for h>draulic working. In s ime
places their prospect to the pan equaled
that of some good paying mines in California to the cubic yard. The World hopes
for the sergeant a good return ou his investment and trusts chat he will not forget bis
friends when there is a clean up.

The Right Hon. Herbert Gladstone, president of the Biitish Board of Agriculture,
will receive in April a deputation from the

These deputations will urge proposals antagonistic to Canada's cattle export trade,
and to this end will make strong representations urging that all imported cattle shall
be slaughtered at the port of landing.
Glasgow and Liverpool shippers ridicule
the bill which Mr. Mulock has introduced
in the Canadian Houae of Commons proposing that the Government should establish a
maximum steamship rate for the transportation of cattle. A prominent cattle shipper,
in speaking of the proposal of the bill, said
that the Government might as well be asked
to fix the price of a man's dinner. The
present Canadian rates scarcely afforded
living wages, and are much Hess than the
United States rate.

TELEORAM, Nuni.imo, British Columbia, and
ask for a ��ai"rle copy of his paper, and when

publisher about it afterwards, and ask him
why it is that he can't print as good a paper,
or obtain as good a looal patronage, or have
his paper as free from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson,
may be learned from Nanaimo."

BRIGANDAGE IN CHINA.

��� li.-rt.Ml by Highway Kobbors.
Brigandage prevails in Chiori to a prent-
er extent than in any country in the world.
and is by no means confined to the more
anarselv populated regions, but It is practised in the vicinity of the largest citie-*.
Traveling in tlie neighborhood of Pekin itself hftri.in late years grown quite ganger

bandits whom I have myself met iu thi

The daring of these pigtail***! knights of
the road, even at this date, would put
their confreres of Albania or Sicily to the
blush, aud no exploit of any European
bandit ean hope to view with the
following audacious ooup by a gain:
of desperadoes who have long infested the low range of hills lying to the
went of Pekin.
Recently tbe Emperor and hia oourt, at
tended by a reti;,ue nnmbering many
thousands of men and women, courtier.-*
and soldiers, were returning from the palace by tiie large lake in the park of Ynci
Ming Yuen, distant only eiu'lit miles from
the walls of the capital, to the winter palace inside the "Forbidden City," when in
the night the tail end of till vast imperial
procession was suddenly cut off by a well
organized gang of bandits.
The main part ot the procession passed
oa in blissful ignorance of the exciting ep
iBodes behind. Little or no resistance wns
made, the eunuchs and ordinary attendants
being either too terrified by the blood
thirsty appearance of the brigands, or.
what   is  quite as likely,  were too guoi.

four thousand ounces of silver ia specie
rrmmm _*icd off by the robbers, who a!-**
u'tf-reared several eunuchs, one or two of
whom are said to be favorites of the Eiu
peror.
It waa only next morning that the news
of aais outrage reached the city, when im
mediately great preparatio g for capturing
the brigands were sat on foot, some fifte-n
hundred soldiers being despatched to hunt
them down. Great efforts were being
made to keep tho affair from the ears of
the J-Lmperor. aa well as from the foreign
residents of Peking, and it is very unlikely
that the former will ever hear of it.
"l'he Vioeroy, Li Hung Chang, has giver,
one more instance of his readiness to
adopt Western ideas where they may some
day add to Chi'ia's power to cope with the
foreigner on the field and afloat, by the
building of a large medical college, which
he opened on the lilth nit, at Tientsin, in
connection with tho naval service. This is
the first institution of the kind worth
speaking of, started by the Chinese government, which, despite its craze tor
Western arms and foreign ships of war.
has hitherto made no provision whatever
for treating ils wounded.
The college is upon an extensive scale
and will be under the charge of a die'in
guished graduate of Dublin University,
who was selected for the post by the la .���
Sir A. Clarke. The establishment of tii*
oollege ie largely due to the personal ef
forts of Dr. Irwin, tlie Viceroy's medical
attendant, and to a talented Canadian lady,
Dr. King, who exercised much influence
upou the late Lady Li, and she in turn had
long urged the Viceroy to lay the fonnua
tion of an institution where the Chinese
might be taught the knowledge of th>*
West in the healing art in which both the
Viceroy and his late wife strongly believed.
Already some twenty, well educated,
English speaking young Cliinanien linve
entered the college and teaching has nl
ready commenced. The opening of th
new institution was attended by a plbasing
ceremonial, In which theforei n and Clmi

SUNDAY. MARCH 25, 1894.
THE APPROPRIATIONS FOR BRITISH COLUMBIA.
Cutting down the estimates seems to be
the order of the day at Ottawa. There is a
decrease of 5708,598 in public works. The
appropriations for British Columbia have
been largely reduced. The item for steam
service between Victoria and San Francisco
s reduced from $117,640 to ?5,000; public
buildings improvements, from $5,000 to
$2,000; and dredging and river improvements, from $87,000 to $56,000. The
amount asked for consolidated fund is $37,-
321,806, and the total amount for all purposes, including that charged to capital, is
$40,038,692, or $4,495,521 less than for
1893-4. British Columbia has reuson to
complain of the amount nf the appropriations, as altogether insufficient. The harbors and rivers of the province need to be
improved, and the sum which it is now proposed shall b- voted by parliament for this
purpose will accomplish very little. Lights
and buoys are needed to make the navigation of the coast waters safer. Reliable
maps and charts should also be provided.
All this requires a liberal expenditure, and
that is quite out of the question with the
paltry pittance promised. Economy is a
good thing in its place, but it ought not to
be carried too far, and the claims of justice
ought to be considered in making the appropriation. It does not seem to us that
this has been done in the case of British
Columbia in framing the estimates now before the House. British Columbia contributes a great deal of money every year to
the revenues of the Dominion. This fact
ought not to be forgotten by the Government at Ottawa, as it seems to be. It is
claimed that this proviuce contributes to
the treasury of the Dominion more than
twice as much per head of her population,as
does any other province of the confederation.
If this claim be aa well founded as we think
it is, British Columbia's claim for more
liberal treatment, in the matter of appropriations for iiec:*stry public improvements
ought to be considered aad allowed. The
appropriations ought to be iu some sort proportional to our contributions to the
revenue. All we ask is simple justice. This
is not done by cutting down the scanty appropriations of last year to such a figure
that the amounts proposed to be granted
might almost as well be refuse**! altogether,
for any good they will do. Let the Government be assured that their scanty appropriations will cause much disappointment and
dissatisfaction among their supporters in
this provinoe.
The following table, published in the
���Colonist of Friday, which has come to
hand since the above was written,shows the
amount per head contributed to the revenue
of the Dominion by the people in each province of the Dominion respectively :
Per Capita.
Ootario $ 5.90
Quebec     7,50
New Brunswick     4.25
Nova Scotia     8.36
Manitoba     7.20
P. E. Island     1.80
British Columbia   15 00
This of course includes both customs
duties and excise. A large part of the g ods
imported in British Columbia is intended
for the provinces east of us. The duty
levied upon them is included in
the above, and goes to the credit of this
Province in calculating the amount per head
contributed by its people to the revenue of
the Dominion. This to a very great extent accounts for our apparently high rate of taxation, as compared with the people of the
other provinces, nevertheless we think that,
considering the large amount that British
Columbia contributes every year to the
revenue of the Dominion, she is fairly entitled to generous treatment in the
appropriations, and that they ought not
to be ont down, as they have been this year,
to a figure that makes them hardly worth
considering���in fact, almost useless for
carrying out works of improvement much
needed by the Province.
MS.  GLADSTONE IN THE CONFESSIONAL.
It has been reported tbat the real cause
of Mr. Gladstone's retirement is, that he
judges the time has oome when he ought to
begin to pay special attention to  his spirit
ual affairs���"make hia soul," aa his
Irish admirers say. It is a principle generally admitted by most Christians, tbat
confession is good for the soul. Therefore
if Mr. Gladstone is looking after his spiritual
concerns, as some say he is, he very properly
begins by confessing his faults. In a letter
to the chairman of the Midlothian Liberals,
thanking him for the generous desire that
he, Mr. Gladstone, should not cease to represent Midlothian, the Grand Old Man
refers to his career, confesses that it has
been chargeable with many errors of judgment, but hopes th*it it was governed by a
desire for strict justice. Mr. Gladstone is
to be congratulated on his candid confession.
His career has certainly been marked by
errors of judgment. His sudden adoption
of Home Rule, in order to keep himself and
his party in office, was one of the greatest
of them from the point of view of a patriotic
British statesman It has caused infinite
disturbance in the politics of the United
Kingdom, and may lead io the future to
worse results, even to civil war itself,
whether it is granted or not. Another very
serious error of judgment, to call it by no
worse name, was his desertion of the heroic
General Gordon, leaving him to be miserably
murdered in Khartoum by his enemies.
Still another was his shameful desertion of
the British party in the Transvaal,
handing them over to the tender mercies
of tho insurgent Boers, which certainly was
not too great. I anyone wishes to know
the state of affairs brought about in tbe
Transvaal by Mr. Gladstone's hasty evacua
tion of it, he had better read Mr. Ryder
Haggard's interesting story of "Jess," and
he will have some idea of it. The
evacuation of the Transvaal afier the defeat
of General Sir George Colley's force at
Majuba Hill, shook British power in South
Africa to its centre, and produced results
which another bloody war may be required
to correct. Another again of his errors of
judgment has been to set class against class
in England, sb he has done, calling men of
education and intelligence, who happened
to be opposed to his policy, the classes, and
pandering on all occasions to the prejudices
of the ignorant and uneducated masses.
These are only a few instances out of many
of Mr. Gladstone's errors nf judgment and
want of patriotism, which a distinguished
writer says it is doubtful if he possesses at
all, as the word is commonly understood.
But how he can reconcile his undoubted
desertion of General Gordon, his abandonment of the loyal Boers and British settlers
in the Transvaal to the meroy of their
enemies, and his desire to hand over the
loyal Protestants of Ulster to be ruled by
their hereditary and religious enemies, with
that strict desire for justice of which he
boasts is hard to understand. Tbat
Mr. Gladstone has all his life pursued the
course which seemed to profit most his personal ambition, regardless of every other
consideration which ought to weigh with a
British statesman, cannot be doubted, and
no amount of canting by himself or foolish
talk by silly and ignorant admirers will
alter the fact. Mr. Gladstone has at last
retired, borne down, as is generally believed,
by the iulirnmies of old age; but it would
have been better far for his reputation as a
statesman if he had retired ten years ago.
Mr. Gladstone is reported to be better.
The condition of his eyes is much the same.
He has consulted a distinguished oculist,
who has advised him that the operation for
the removal of the cataraot on his eye can
be performed without the smallest danger.
Mrs. Gladstone is reported not to be at all
well. It is proposed by the Liberals to preseut a nation tl testimonial to Mr. Gladstone
for his services in their cause. Toe political
oommitlee of the National Liberal Club will
act us a committee ou the memorial.
Liberal organizations throughout the United
Kingdom are expected to assist in collecting
money for the memorial.
Mr. Jamks Huddart, the promoter of the
proposed new Canadian Pacific mail route
from England to Australia, in an interview
on Wednesday last, expressed himself as
hopeful of obtaining all the advantages and
concessions, which were the object of his
visit to London. Sir Charles Tupper also
said on Wednesday, that during the preceding week he had been approached by representatives from Liverpool, Milford Haven,
Southampton, Swansea, Bristol, Plymouth,
and Cork, who pointed out the respective
advantages claimed by these towns as ports
of departure or ports of call for the new Atlantic line. No seleotion of any English
port for either purpose has yet beeu made,
and probably will not be till all the other
arrangements have first been completed.
INSURANCE
REAL.   ESTATE
It appears that Representative Wilson,
of Washington, is making enquiries as to
the contraols whioh the United State.
Treasury Department is said to have mad.
with a British Columbia ooal company, for
supplying $100,000 worth of coal to the
Amerioan ve.sels which will be employed in
patroling Behring Sea. He regards the
contract as a discrimination in favor of British interests. Wilson claims to have official
information that the contract was made
with the Comox mines of Vanoouver Island
although there are abundant ooal supplies in
the Puget Sound country. Well, what of
it? There is no doubt plenty of ooal of an
inferior quality in the Puget Sound country, but none of it is fit for steaming purpose's. The inferior quality of Puget Sound
ooal, has been proved long ago by the officers
of the American navy. In making a contract for Vancouver Island coal for ships sent
to cruise in Behring Sea, the Amerioan Government is not discriminating against Puget
Sound coal. It is simply purchasing ooal of
excellent steaming quality, suoh as it oould
not procure in the cities along Paget Sound.
This is not discrimination; it is simply ordinary business prudence, baying at th.
cheapest prioe ooal suited for its purpose in
a neighboring market, instead of buying at
home coal known by experience not to be
suitable. The action of the Amerioan. Government in this matter is deserving of
praise, and cot of blame.

worship in. The seats have been raised and
upholstered, making them much more comfortable. New choir stolls have replaced
the old Beats aod the pulpi*1, whioh has a
new frontal of handsome designs, has been
removed further out into the building, beyond the choir, whioh will enable the
preacher to be better heard. A new dossal
of brilliant color behind the altar brightens
and beautifies the whole building. Some
plants and flowers, contributed by the
ladies, add effectiveness to the improvements, of which Canon Good is justly proud
and they are creditable to his exertions.

Quite a number of Nanaimoans drove out
Friday, taking advantage of the fine
weather. On the road was quite a stream
of vehioles.
Mr. John Black is making the acquaintance of his customers by means of delivering the bread whioh he has had baked by
Mr. Barrel, one of the best bakers on the
Island.

In spite of its being Lent snme twenty or
more were duly on haud and drove to Englishman's River Falls lo take in the picnic.
As the falls are a truly beautiful spot, a
very pleasant day waB spent. After lumlieon
the party enjoyed itself by mountain climbing and general sporting About, sunset
the happy parly returned, rather tired by
the outing but highly enthusiastic over the
occasion.
In the store window of Mr. E. Merman
there is a plan of the proposed cycling track
and sporting ground. It is a far simile of
the track "at Springfield and Waltham,
Mass., whioh is consider,d one of the best
in America. The lap of the track is one-
third of a mile and 100 yards in width. All
that remains now iB for some energetic few
to organize and push the matter to an issue.
Plenty of support will be forthcoming if it
is only asked for. Dr. Eberts is very enthusiastic about the proposition and hopes
that the ground will be ready by June.
At the Wellington Methodise church on
Friday evening a grand concert was given
by the Y.M.C.A, including many friends
from Nanaimo. Among thorn who contributed to the evening'* entertainments were
Miss Gowland who rendered two solos in
her usual good manner being accompanied
by Miss Pollock. A reading by Miss Sloan
was considered very good. Miss K. McGill
both as au instrumentalist and vocalist g��ve
great satisfaction. The club swinging by
Mr. H. Stewart was thought to be immense.
Miss A. Glaholm was another pleasing
vooalist. As a pianist Miss K. Smith exhibited some skill in exeoution. The genial
Mr. J. Wray was there, ever ready to
oblige and entertain with one of his oomio
songs, and Mr. S. Craig gave a recitation
with some effeot. As a ohairman Mr.
Thomas Haggart ably filled his position and
wound np a pleasant evening with appropriate remarks.

Mr. W. T. Carleton should be respected
and earnestly encouraged; not because of
incomparable performances, but because of
inoentive to survival provided by htm for a
class of music neglected or outraged by almost every other musical combination. In
the face of blatant faroe and burlesque,
which have been elevated to the station
which was held by comic opera years ago,
Mr. Carleton has hazarded muoh capital
aod reputation in a brave endeavor to sustain an art apparently growing out of taste.
There is no sort of entertainment so delightful as lyric and comic opera. It is easy to
recognize an earnest effort to rehabilitate
English opera, and Mr. Carleton Bhould
receive the recognition he bo strongly merits.
It is said that the Carleton Company gives
an unusually olever rendition of "Nanon,"
their best known work, the familiar numbers of the score being sung with accuracy,
feeling and spirit, and promptly catch the
popular ear.
The Carleton Opera Company will appear
at Mahrer's Opera House on Wednesday

The steamer Esperanza leaves this evening for Cape Mudge, the scene of the disaster to the steadier EsteUe, to endeavor to

elucidate the mystery which is hanging over
the sad occurrence. In conversation with
one of the officers of the Joan, he gave his
opinion that thre was little reliance to be
placed on the reported finding of the late
Norman McDougall's body. He based hie
opinion par ly ou his knowledge of the
tinder's veracity, and alsoon the well-known
fact that the human body will not float after being immersed Buch a length of time as
has elapsed since the melancholy occurence.

KITCHIN'S    DREAM.
Business being ouly quiet, I spent the afternoon till dark
doing somewhat heavy work in the garden, and having dined
sat me down in the same arm chair I've sat in many times before
in my happy home in dear old England, and many a "forty
winks" have I had in that same chair. I was very tired and
feeling very sleepy, said to my dear wife, "If I fall asleep let me
sleep on." And fall asleep I did, and dreamt the following
dream:���
I was in the garden, spade in hand, when a fine-looking
elderly man, with snow white I air and beard, and ruddy, honest
face, that showt d unmistakably that he was a man who had
weathered it more ways than one, came to the gate and said "I
also have b en a worker, and seen much of the world and its
'ups and downs.' For forty years I was a miner���come alorg
with me and I will show you something worth the seeing." I laid
down my spade ani involuntarily followed him. When on
Front street he snid: "See you those vessels in the bay? That's
the commencement of better times, and there are real good
times ahea^ f*>r your good C ty of N-maimo. The worst is past,
not to return for years, if ever, but that \ guess you know yourself.   See you that tramway ?"   I could not, but thought I should.
"I want you to go with me by boat to Vancouver and
on to the richest country, or one of them, on God's earth, the
Kaslo-Slcan country;" and so we went. Once on board, the
old man, putting his strong hand on my shoulder, said: "I guess
you also have seen some of the ups and downs of this wicked
world." "That's so," I said, "but 'Never Say Die,' is my motto,
and I mean to get there yet." "Well said," replied my friend,
"then you will not regret this journey." From boat to trair,
and then we seemed to fly, and landed in a country teeming
with untold wealth. Mine after mine he showed me, and seemed
to know many oi the workers. "This is no talk, no idle fancy,"
said he, "t1 ere it is before your eyes, untoid wealth;" and so it
was���unmistakably. We then followed, as I remember, the
track of the Kaslo-Sl can Railway. "In less thin three months
from now, my friend," said he, "the rails will be down and
trains running into Kaslo; and here we are in Kaslo itself. I
must Jeivc you now, mate good use of your opportunity, and
if y n have i he p uck you'r credited with, (and but for that I
should not have sought you out), I say if you have the seise I
think you have, put your last dollar into Kaslo, and grow rich."
I turned to thank him for his good advioe, and saying I would
act upon it, stretched out my hand, but his was gon<, it was my
wife's I grasped.
"You seemed 60 restless, Tom, I thought I'd wake you,
it's time to go to bed " she said.    And to bed I went.
This dream is a fa'jt.     It may have arisen from the unbounded confidence I havt in the future of

That department of state oallcd the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs ia the most Important one in Franoe.    In  no other ooun-
X.  ARMAWn MOIXAUD
try, with, -perhaps, the exception of Russia,
is the Department of Foreign Affairs so
active, so far reaching or so noted for bewildering complications and ramifications
as the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
It is the oldest department of the kind in
the world. Under monarchical France
the department was administered with a
view to conserving tbe rights uf the King
rather than the interest of the people.
These rights depended on state papers and
diplomatic correspondence, and wherever
the documents were there was the Ministry
of Foreign Affairs.
They were usually kept in the King's
private cabinet, and the pa eis and the se
oret iries who had them in charge followed
the King wherever he went. They were
always prepared for immediate transportation. Cardinal Richelieu whs very particular how they were disposed and bad
everything numbered and lettered for
ready reference. It was not until about
the year 1710 that a permanent depot
was thought of. It waa iu Paris, iu one of
the pavilions of the Louvre, that the diplomatic archives first found a resting place.
In 17(11 the Due de Choiseul, who was
obliged to reside at Versailles near the
King, proposed the construction ot a building for the special use of the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs. Two years after it woe
done.
In 1700 the archives were transferred to
the Hotel de Uallifet, in the Rue du Bac,
Paris, and three years afterward to the
Hotel d*> Mai.repas, ia the same neighbor
hood. Napoleon I. conceived the idea of
putting up a fine building on the Quai
d'Orsay for the Bureau of Foreign Affairs,
aud Architect Hmiuard designed the
structure subsequently occupied not by tbe
Foreign Affairs Bureau, but by other departments. It was uot until 1845 that the
present fine structure fSy tbe architect
Jacques Laeornee was begun in the Quai
d'Orsay.
That part known as the Hotel du Minis
Ire is an elegant aud majestic edifice. It
is bnllt in the extremity of a terrace which
separates it from the quay. The facade is
embellished with Doric and Gothic columns, with balustrades in the Ituliau style
on each story, and at the top with
medallions of the armorial bearings of the
different powers. It waa partly destroyed
by tlie Commune, but restore*! in 1871.
Big as the niii.'iiiticent huil'iing is yet it
is not too large for the various services
.connected with the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs. Oil the ground floor are the
apartments and offices of the foreign minister, with splendid reception rooms and  a
tiie cipher bureau i ad lhe eouri r's bureau.
The whole is directe 1 by a d i.-f and as
sisiant. Tlieir functions are l'*e opening
of tue despatches air: convspo.'.dence of
the Minis*.ry, tne rending of tue French
newspapers, the piess ivpo.ls. tlie ed.tlllg
and until.cation of   the annual  report and
tiie (iis-xtRiti'in of tiiL* secret service fund.
These functions *t*miind special taot, a rare
faculty of a-Himihi'ion and absolute oer-
taintt in passing judgment,
Tne pr-.-seut _iluster of Foreign Affairs
is M. Develle, His principal aide are M.
Revoil and Paul Lafurgue, chiefs, and M.
Gavarry, assistant. M. Revoil, who has
lately beeu named Sub Director of Consul
ates, has been succeeded by M. Lafui\'ue,
who, with M. Ednioud About anil M.
Saroey, was one of the founders of Le Dix-
Neuvieme Siecle. The chief secretary is
M. Tirard, who is very highly esteemed.
The translation foreign press bureau iB
of special importance. We give a picture
of it. It is divided into two sections.
Tbe business of one section is to make
translations of all documents offered the
service into French, or iuto the languare
of the countries to whioh communications
may be sent. The press section makes
every day a summary in French of all
political Articles published in Knglish,
German, Russian, Italian, Spanish, Roumanian and all other newspapers, as well
aa preaentlng a summary of political articles iu French papers published in other
countries. This service requires a profound knowledge of international law and
jurisdiction, as well as of foreign lan-
L'tiages. Its direction ia confided to M.
Duca.
The cipher bureau is occupied solely with
making and deciphering secret despatches.
Cipher writing wan used by the ancients.
Csesar, we know, earned on a correspondence with his friends by its means. ThiB
he did by odvancing the letters of the alphabet by fourths. The cryptograph was
employed in diplomatic correspondence in
the thirteenth century... There are many
systems, among the-e the transposition of
letters, the grille (or blank sua es), and the
cipher code or dictionary, fn the last century the grille was principally used. This
process consists in covering the paper with
a gridiron, of which the other person haa
a double. One writes in the open spaces,
and then taking away the grille, the blank
spaces are filled in with words which completely hide the sense of the despatch.
The person at the other end has but to
cover the paper with his duplicate gridiron
to make tlie meaning clear.
The cipher oode, however, is deemed the
best. Tt was often us.*d in the eighteenth
century in diplomatic correspondence, ami
is employed to-day. When a diplomatic
went is sjnt to an embassy or legation the
department usually �� nils with him three
ciphers���a written cipher, a kev, and a
toiuiiiou cipher. The first ought to serve
liiii for the reading of his despatches, the
Kecond gives him the clew to taose he will
receive, and the third, less complicated,
will permit him to correspond with his
colleagues abroad.- ��� Formerly the political
bureaus themselves deciphered the despatches. To day its special cipher bureau
does that and that alone. It is said that

we come to the Yellow Room, where the
wife of the foreign minister reoeiTce once a

beautiful in Paris. Amorg other rare and
precious article* we see is a beautiful
breati or chest of drawers which came from

and it is attributed to Reieuor, the famous

Linoleum III the Kitchen,
An authority on "itch matters recommends u thin quality of linoleum to be
used as a dado for i *��� walls iu a kitchen.
It should l�� glued ��� ** e to the wall, and
may be finished a me lop with a plain
moulding. It may t en be oiled or var
nished, or left ill its n .tuial condition, as
o:ie chouses. It is in .very way to be pre-
:tc*1 to a di.do of wood, which is liable
lo cri.ok ami leave .nt* rsticcs iu widen
insects may lodge. The dado of linoleum
is as easily washed as a dnilo of tiling, anil
i*. even more durable, while it is a good
ileal cheaper.
In tbe natural wood color in which this
material comes, it would make a very
pretty dado for a wall painted pale
blue. As iiuoleum is nothing more than
tiie blown pa|p of wood, combined aim
* xidized linseed oil, it can le readily seen
���hat ii can be treated In any way that
wood can be treated, while it i�� .exactly
*-uited to this purpose and the purpose of
covering kitchen floors. A dado is almost
a necessity in a kitchen, because a plast
��� red wall gets chipped with continual
wear. Linoleum offers just the rigut
material necessary for such protection.
