Paris, Deo. 13.���The Socialist deputies
have chosen the worBt possible time to raise
the question whether the recent strikes in
the coal dis' nets were justifiable. Several
of the more nn derate representatives of the
party were against provoking a dubate of
miners' rights, but they were overruled by
the extremists, who are closely associated
with avowed anarchists.
Both iu and out of the Chamber the re
actions since thu bomb explosion of Saturday
have been so complete that Socialist doc-
trints which formerly weie if.tuned in
patiently, excite now only re.eutuieu*/. M.
Basly's motion in the Chamber yesterday
was merely for the appointment of a commission to inquire into the strikes. It was
amended and expurgated. Basly's or-
original resolution affirmed the necessity of repealing existing mining
laws, of nationalizing mining properties and annulling all mining concessions
without indemnifying the present owners.
No proposal so distinctively permeated
with the principles of collectivism
has ever been discussed in the chamber.
The Socialist speakers, somewhat tamed by
public indignation, gave but veiled expreu
sion to these purposes as originally indicated
by BaBly. The deputies thoroughly under-
slood, however, Ihe drift of their spetolies
and responded to the ministerial exposures
of the socialist plan. The division tomor
row will show tbat three-fourths of the
chamber oppose Basly and his group. Tne
revulsion ot feeling against socialism is so
intense und widespread that it is likely to
become a permanent check to the party.
The newspapers abound in articles tracing
the intimacy of the relations between
socialists and anarchists. Just before the
culmination of Vaillant's plot Le Petite Be-
publiqne had declaied that the colhictivistl
and anarchists mot on common g.uiind, as
both regarded the society of to-day as an
ephemeral monster, nursed by brutality and
spoliation.
The Temps voices general opinion in making this comment upon the protests of the
socialists that they do not espouse the
anarchist cuuse: "These protests are insincere. Collectivists generally do not
hamper themselves with scruples as to legality or moderation. They regard ihesa outrages with complaisance if not sympaihy."
Tnese criticisms, however, apply luiher to
the followers of Jules Guesde, the marayst,
than to the more moderate municipal socialists, who are known as posaibiliata un-t have
the sirongeat aud most careful organization
of all French socialist groups. The Gues-
dids, while repudiating fraternity with the
anarchists are iu tact in close sympathy with
them as t he Temps maintains.
The Happtl publishes a letter addressed by
Vaillant to Guesde, in the election of 1887.
The letter begins with "My dear Guesde,"
promises Guesde the assistance of the
socialists and revolutionaries and closes with
the words "yours with a fraternal shake of
the hand." The biographies of several men
arrested since Saturday on suspicion of complicity with Vaillant show that they formerly were members of Guesde's circle. The
socialist editors are consumed with anger
every time a new accusation is made against
them and retort venomously with contra
charges.
The Petite RepubliqtU says: The monarchist and opportunist press continues its
vomitings against socialism, and expectorates its palpable calumnies, yelling all the
time" collectivism is anarchism and must be
crushed. The infamous repression of the
newspapers will not suffice for them. We
must he hunted down uud extirpated." No
collectivist newspaper has come nearer than
this to refuting the charge of friendship with
the anarchists. Sever.il Guesdist journals
do not deny this bond of sympathy but
boldly defend Vaillant. Le Peuplt in
LyouH, the most popular of the Guesdiat
dailies in the south of France, calls the explosion of Saturday "a mere incident in the
social war," and adds: "We have no
anathemas tor those who seek supreme
revenue as a remedy for the intolerable evils
afflicting them."
Premier Cisiniir Perier conferred with
Ministers Raynal and Dubost this afternoon
and with them decided upon the rigorous
enforcement of the new measures against
the Anarchists. The new special police will
be formed by next January and will be set
to work at once in all large towns, searching domiciles, railway stations and frequenting meetings of the nialconients. This surveillance will be general, secret and thorough.
The house of Paul R. Reclus, nephew of
Elize Reclus, the celebrated writer on
geography, was searched today by ih-j
police, aud many documenisof an anarchistic tendency were seized. I'aul Reclus,
like his uncle, is an anarchist in theory
only. The police have made many domiciliary visits in Calais, but have found
nothing objectionable. In Falaize, Calidos,
where the postmaster was informed by
letter that the postoffice would be blown
up, they have been equally unsuccessful.
The editor of Lt Peuplt in Lyons was
called to the prefecture there and examined
but was not detained. A Spaniard named
Pye, has been arrested. As he acknowledges
that he left Barcelona immediately after
the explosion in the Lyceum  Opera  House,

he will be expelled from France at once. In
Marseilles many houses have been searched
and several arrestB have been made.
The police here have been busy all day
stripping from the walls an anarchist poster
beginning with these words:���" Woiking-
men, you are always duped, revolt, to
arms !'

All Night Patrols.
Dublin, Dec. 13.���Extra precautions were
taken last night in Dublin and vicinity because of the warnings received by the
authorities to guard against dynamite outrages. Guards about the buildings have
been increased, aud all night, patrols were
doing duty inside and outside all the bar-
Jacks.    Nothing occurred.
Threatening Language.
London, Dec. 13,���Another of the almost
daily meetings of the unemployed working-
men of London was held at Tower Hill today. John Jewers, an obscure person,
made an address in which he said that a
secret society was being formed. He
warned the authorities that unless the demands of the unemployed were satisfied by
Christmas, there would be a reign of terror
in London, the like of which has never been
heard of in the annals of history. Then
deeds would be done which would have a
greater effect and cause a greater sacrifice
of life thau the recent deeds in the French
Chamber of Deputies and the Lyceum
theatre at Barcelona. A Socialist named
Williams announced that there would be
anc her march of the unemployed to Hyde
Park on Friday.
The Indian Loan.
London, Dec 13.���Iu the House of Commons, G. E. Russell after a reference to the
condition of the Indian Treasury, moved the
second reading of the bill providing for an
Indian loan of ��10,000,000. He aaid this
was necessary to meet certain payments in
gold in England aud losses arising out of
ch.siug Indian mints. Sir Wm. Temple
seconded the motion and said India ought
to be given a fair chance to successfully
carry out the closing of the mints. Sir John
Lubbock said it waa obviously the con sequence of continued importations of silver
into India that bullion should now be utilized where coin was previously used. He
feared the people were relapsing into barter.
Right Hon. George Shaw Lefevre, First
Commissioner of Public Works, will be

Their Action Approved.
Toronto, Dec. J'2.���At the last night's
meeting of the Young Conservatives' Association, a motion expressing approval of the
action of the Manitoba Government in refusing to reopen the question of national
schools was put to a vote aud resulted in a
tie. The resolution will be submitted again
at the next meeting.
Socialism in Montreal.
Montreal, Dec. 13.���Quite a commotion
exists in this city over the reported discovery of a socialistic organization here. In
July a section of the American socialistic
organization was formed in this city. Since
that time the organization has had a steady
growth. Nineteen meu were initiated at
the first meeting, and the increase has been
so rapid that a second section was formed
last month with a membership of 43. Another section is about to be formed. Unlike
labor organizations generally, there are no
restrictions as to the applicant's trade, calling or social standing. All in sympathy
with socialism are admitted to membership.
All persons joining the organization must
sever connection with existing political
partita and devote themselves solely to the
tenets of the socialistic propaganda.
Another ol Kennedy's Crimos.
Windsor, On*., Deo.   IS.���Mr. Hilton,
an aged farmer of 1'lili-burg, was murdered
five years ago and before he passed away
accused a man named Agnew of committing
the deed. Agnew was arrested, and ac-
Itiitled quite easily. Two other arrests
were mane and one of the men, McMahon,
was convicted and seutenced to hang, but
his sentence was commuted to imprisonment
for life. At the time of the murder a man
named McDuff worked in the neighborhood
where Hilton lived and after the murder
disappeared. A big reward was offered for
his arrest but he eould not he found. About
a month ago a dispatch from British Columbia stated that a man named Kennedy
had beeu convicted of man-Blauuhter there
and confessed to having murdered a man 111
Essex County. It now transpires thai
Kennedy is McDuff, Friends will at once
endeavor to get McMahon free.
Lost In the Mountains.
RIDDING, Cal., Dec. 13.���Mr. Opdyke of
Cayton Valley, this country, discovered the
dead body of a man in the mountains about
four miles from Little Bar Flat. Justice S.
A. Smith, acting coroner, proceeded at once
to summon a jury, and accompanied by a
physician proceeded to the place. After
considerable difficulty he succeeded in bringing the body to Dana,| where an inquest was held. The body proved
to be that of a young man
named Ernest W. Banter, a native
of Ireland, 21 years of age. It seems tho
young man and a companion had been
trapping in the mountains and young Baker
had gone to Cayton valley on business during the stormy weather of last November,
and on attempting to return was overtaken
by a snow storm, and not being much ot^a
woodsman became bewildered and perished.
SOCIALISM DOWN ON ANARCHY.
According to a London Manifesto-Meetings of the Unemployed.
London, Dec. 13.���A socialist manifesto
signed by the secretary of the Serral Democratic Federation, has been issued. It says:
"The average anarchist has a holy horror of
organization in any shape. We should well
and carefully consider the effect that mad-
brained bomb-throwing will have on socialism. There is but one opinion among
socialists respecting the harmful nature of
these explosions in every country.
The anarchists will deceive themselves when they believe their cause
will be popularized by such deeds. It was
a recognized fact that there were certain
times when assassination by means of bombs
was the only weapon left, to the cause of
progiess. Bombs were theu used to break
down the power of an autocracy which did
not aliow freedom of speech, freedom of
press, or freedom of meeting. So great was
the reaction from anarchical attempts that
people were disposed to aid the passing of
unusual laws, which ordinarily they would
fight tooth and nail. It is the duty of
socialists in Great Britain lo see to it, that
under the guise of stamping out anarchy,
measures sre not taken that will infringe
upon freedom of speech and freedom of
meeting."
GOTHAM GLEANINGS.
A Bishop   Has  a  Small  Congregation,
Stead on Temperance.
Nnw York, Dec. 13.���A special from
Fond du Lac, Wis., says: Bishop Grafton
came to church on Sunday prepared to deliver a sermon. He faced an audience half
as large as a corporal's guard. Ihe bishop
told his (Wit de had worked four daya on
his sermon aim did not propose to waste it
on a handful. He upbraided the parish for
lack of interest, and ended by stepping
down from the pulpit without delivering
the sermon. It is feared the bishop will
remove to some other city in the diocese
because of lack of interest here.
The Hi raid's Montevideo cable says: The
result of the recent election in this country
has just been officially declared. The new
Chamber of Deputies will consist entirely of
the nomiur.es of the official or administrative
party.
A special from Chicago says: Mr. Stead
was speaking on the temperance question
yesterday. His speech was an arraignment
of the methods of temperance wo kera. He
aaid they called the well-regulated saloon
the worst. He thought the worst was the
one that permit1 ed gambling and other
vices. Instead of wailing for saloons to get
so bad thAt everybody would he against
them, he was in favnr of using the maximum of avai'able force against the weakest
point, nam ^y, the disreputable saloonr. It
was no crime to drink a glass of wine, he
said, and it was no crime to sell wine. The
prohibition law, be said, could never auc-
ceed in stopping the sale of liquor.
A special from Jackson, Mich., says: A
year and a half ago William Repke made a
confession that he together with August
Grossman, Henry Jacobs, Charles Foedgar
and Augustus Foreman, shot and killed
Robert Molitor near Alpend sixteen years before, All these men were tried and convicted and all are doing life sentences in the
state prison in this place. Repke said yesterday: "Oil the day before 1 was arrested
foiest fires burned up all I hud saved in
seventeen yeais. Iihirklmust have been
crazy then. I got drunk und I hid a row
with Henry Banks. He said moan things to
me, I was like a mad man aud 1 said, 'You
killed Molitor and I will tell on you.' The
deputy sheriff' heaid me and took me before
the prosecuting attorney. I told anything
that came into my head. I thought when
Grossman was tried that he would have witnesses to clear him, but he was convicted;
then the otherB were convicted and I was
aent here for life. This story I now tell is
the truth. I tell it so the others may some
time get out. As God is my judge, none of
these men who are here are guilty. No one
is guilty but me and I swore falsely." There
is little doubt but thit the other men will be
granted a new trial on this confession.
Lo Bengula Makes Forbes Retire.
CxrE Town, Dec. 13.���A despatch dated
at Buluwayo on Dec. Sth, Bays: "Major
ForbeB' party have been obliged to retire on
account of the strong resistance of Lo
Bengula. Major Forbes is believed now to
be in a perilous position. After crossing the
Shangani river, Major Forbes sent Captain
Wilson forward to find Lo Bengula, who
was believed to be close at hand. Wilson left
camp late in theeveningand reached the king's
wagon at midnight. Thereupon lie Ii >l cd.
Lo Bengula's men evidently were exi noting
the British and attacked them hotly ou both
sides, firing from the bush. Captain Wilson
waa greatly outnumbered, and he retired
fighting steadily. He sent a messenger to
Major Forbes for reinforcements, but mea.11-
whi.e ��� e S.iangaui had risen suddenly, cutting cd' communication between the main
and advance parties. It is believed that
Major Forbes is trying to cross the river
higf er up. Much anxiety is felt for him
aud Captain Wilson.
May Carry Hawaii's Destiny.
Washington, Dec. 13. ��� When the
steamer Alameda sails from San Francisco
to Honolulu to morrow, she will carry dispatches from Secretary Uresha-n to Minister Willis. It is believed that these despatches are important and contain instruc-
lions which may have a vital effect on the
Hawaiian situation. They were necessarily
somewhat hastily prepared in order to catch
the Alameda. To-morrow may be a memorable day in the history of the provisional
government. The United States revenge
cutter whioh left San Francisco secretly on
the night of December 4;h, is due in
Honolulu then, and it ia understood that
she carries explicit instructions to Minister
Willis as to his action towards the contingencies which have arisen to interfere
with his carrying out the administration
policy of restoring the ex-Queen.
Whether or not the communication to be
sent by the Alameda will modify the original instructions Bent by the Corwin,'cannot
be ascertained and frieuds of the provisional
government are divided iu their opinions
whether the minister will act up to the
promise he gave President Dole not to act
until the arrival of the Alameda on December 21. NANAIMO, B. C, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 14, 1893.
BY WIRE FROM SAN FRANCISCO.
Current News from the City by the Golden
Gate.
San Francisco, Dec. 13.���L. L. Thurston, Hawaiian minister in the United States,
who arrived from Washington yesterday,
received a bundle ol dispatches this morning, which arrived late last night by the
steamer Ocenic. The miniater declined to
diaclose their contents until he had gone
through them thoroughly, and refused to
discuss the present situation. When asked
if he would go down to Honolulu by the
Alameda which sails next Friday, Mr.
Thurston said he was as yet unable to give
a definite answer but would probably be
able to do so later in the day.
Jack McAuliffe haB accepted young
Mitchell's challenge for a limited boxing
contest. The men will meet shortly to complete arrangements.
The Oceanic brings news from Japan that
the steamBhip Mathuyediaru struck on
the rocks while bound for Shonohard on
Nov. 15, and foundered. Thirty passengers
were drowned.
W. H. Gibson, who ia wanted in Denver
on a charge of embeizling S'20,000 was
arrested in this city to-day. The police had
been looking for Gibson for over a week.
He was arrested by two detectives as he was
getting his mail at the post office, when he
attempted to resist arrest but was quickly
overpowered and placed in jail to await the
arrival of the officer from Denver to take
him home.
NEWS  FROM WASHINGTON.
A Protest I Against the New Tariff-Frye
Denounced-News from Honolulu.
Washington D.C., Dec. 13���The new
Democratic tariff bill is a most iniquitous
and unjust measure to the state of Washington whose representatives here will stoutly
contest its passage at every step. There is
scarcely an industry in that great state that
will not be dealt a heavy blow if thia bill
becomea a law. Senator Squire haa already
prepared and presented to the ways and
means committee a lengthy and vigorous
protest against the proposed removal of the
duty on the principal products of the Puget
sound region, calling especial attention to
the inconsistency of the policy of the administration in excluding Chinese for the
protection of American labor, and at the
same time enacting tariff laws that will
bring every laborer in the Pacific Northwest
into direct competition with the pauper
labor in the already Chinese-flooded province of British Columbia.
At the conclusion of Frye'a speech in the
Senate to-day, West commented on the
partisan speech of Hoar and Frye, and said,
in reference to Frye, that on all party questions he (West) wou'd as little trust him aB
he would trust a hungry wolf when bleatiug
lambs were in the immediate vicinity. He
ridiculed the Christian pretensions of Ste-
vena and the New England revolutionists of
Hawaii, and said they had Christianized
the natives out of their country aud taken
possession of it under the name of God, then
divided the lands among themifelves under a
law made by themselves.
Gresham and Herbert heard from Honolulu thiB morning through telegrams sent
from Sau Francisco for minister vySlis and
-Admiral Irwin. What Willis told Gresham
will probably remain a secret until made
public through Congress. Irwin's telegram
to the secretary was brief, dated at Honolulu, Dec. 4th, and read: "Provisional
Government has one thousand men under
arms at the palace, prepared for defense."
The navy department has received a cable
from Rio de Janeiro which says the big
battle expected in the harbor has been
begun by Admiral Gama, the insurgent
commander. Copas Island and Knchades
are continually firing on the customs house
and naval arsenal.
The annual report of l'rof. Mcudenhall,
chief of the coast geodetic survey is interesting. The report says that the preliminary surveys needed for locating the
north-eastern boundary line between the
United States and Canada are nearing completion. Officers and supplies have been
sent to south-eastern Alaska, under in-
atructiona to co-operate with the officers
detailed by the Dominion of Canada for
locating the boundary line between Alaska
and British Columbia.

criminals were arrested and part of thi
money recovered.

The old man is now past 80 and takes hia
defeat philosophically. He was at one time

To Establish Refuges.
CHICAGO, Dec. 12.���A resolution was in
trod lined in the city council last night to es
tablish refuges for the poor of the city. The
aldermen subscribed $.~>0 each, making a
total of ��3,400 of the immediate relief fund,
and appointed a committee to look after the
sheltering of the homelesB. Old freight
depots have been secured at the foot of
Randolph street and preparations are beiug
made to feed 3,000 perBons. The churches,
too, have begun the work in earnest.
Remains In   Lbeyance.
Baltimore, M. D., Leo. 13.���The Catholics in this diocese will not press the demand for a share in the public school fuudB.
A meeting of the clergy waa held at the
residence of the Vicar-General to-day, at
which Cardinal Gibbons presided. While
all the priests, including the cardinal, were
���favorably inclined to the proposition, it was
thought beat, owing to the decided opposition on the part of the laymen and Protestants generally, not to ask tor the passage of the bill by the next legislature. So
the matter rests for the present.

Selsmographic Disturbances In Canada
The shock of earil.qunke experienced in
and aroui.d Montreal two weeks, agoprohably
the worst ever rtcorded in Canada, recalls
similar evenis in the past in the Dominion.
In 1870 an earthquake shook Montreal
and mused considerable alarm. Ou
January 4th, 1871, a Bhock was experienced
at HawkeBbury, on the Ottawa river,
but was not reported from any other
place. There was a more extensive earthquake on May 22, 1871, that prevailed from
the city of Quebec to the western part of
Ontario, au even more severe one than that
ou Nov. 4, 1887. At Montreal there was
only one distinot shock, preceded by the
usual rumbling noise, and sufficiently Bevere
to be distinctly felt and to shake window
Bashes and other loose objects, causing them
to vibrate for several seconds. It seemed to
be limited to i he area aloDg the river St. Law-
ence,exleudingfrom near Three Riverson the
east lo Kingston on the weBt, in a direction
transverBe to the St. Liwrence, extending
from Otawa to the southern part of New
England. On August 21=t, 1879, there was
a shock which was felt, through Lower and
Upper Canada. Anniher earthquake was
experienced on November 2!>lh, 1880, and
was felt at Quebec and various piuccfl on ihe
lower Si. Lawrence and also at Ottawa.
There was a slight Bhock in April, 1880. On
May 3l8t, 1880, there was auother. This
was an unusual period of the year, aud
it was felt throughout the province of
Quebec In 1882 an earthquake was ex
perienced in the Lower Provinces, and in
March, 1885, a shook was felt throughout
the province of Quebec. In April of the
same year one was felt at Murray Bay and
in Vermont. In June, 1887, still another
was felt on the lower St. Lawrence and at
Quebec. Earthquakes were quite a feature
in 1888, there being no less than four during
that year. On Jan. 11th the shock was felt
throughout Quebec and Ontario; in February there was a very slight shock; in July
another, and still auother in November of
the same year.

Marines Must Look Out.
San Dieoo, Dec. 12.���The steamer Colos
Pachcco arrived in nort '.o-day with passengers and freight from the lower California coast. Captain Colburne rcporls the
loss of a big ligUer in the storm < I tho 3rd

SOUTHERN L VNCHINGS.
Another story comes to hand of a quadruple lyuching on Sunday last at Dallas,
near Selina, Alabama. The victims were
negroes and their offence was attacking a
white woman whom they found alone in her
house during the absence of her husband.
The woman fired on the negroes and wounded
one of them, whereupon they fled taking the
wounded man with them. An alarm was
given, and a party of enraged citizens were
soon on the track of the fugitives, whom
they traced by the blood which dropped
from the wounded man. They speedily
overtook the latter, whom they compelled at
the muzzle of a gun to tell in what direction
the others had gone. Bringing the wounded
man along, they resumed the pursuit aud
overtook the fugitives. The next proceeding was to bring the four men to a swamp,
where they hanged them to the same limb.
The sceue of the lynching is a few miles
from the place where three other negroes had
been lynched the week before.
Lynchings aro becoming more frequent
than ever in the Southern states, and in
nearly every case the victims are negroes.
Emancipation has not worked satisfactorily
in the south. The generation id blacks that
has come into existence since the war of
secession are not an improvement on their
predecessors. Many of the young people
have got a smattering of education, just
enough to make them conceited. They
resent the position of inferiority in the
presence of the white men which they are
forced to occupy. They revenge themselves when opportunity occurs by outrages
on unprotected vthite women, which enrage
the white men beyond control. Hence these
savage lynchings, by which, apparently,
the whites seek to terrify the negroes. But
the latter, whether terrified or not, go on
with their outrages as opportunity occurs,
and the whites proceed with the lynchings.
The state of feeling between the two races
lias become very bad, and may yet end in
civil war. Nothing prevents this consummation but the consciousness of the negroes,
that if they ventured to take up arms they
would be disastrously defeated. The wiser
among the blacks know this very well, and
are afraid to rise. Hence a war of races
has ao far been prevented, but that such
will finally take place seems more than
probable.
It is eii^y to blame the white men of the
South for their savage lynchings, but the
fault is more with the American system of
administering justice than with the white
men of the South. In the United States it
is nearly impossible to bring a malefactor to
juBtioe if only he can command money
enough to fee lawyers. The lawyers
will at any rate be able to cause
mouthB, if not years, of delay,
especially in capital caBes, till the crime is
well-nigh forgotten. Hence people have
loat confidence in the prompt administration
of justice, and prefer to take the matter
into their own hands rather than let it pass
into the hands of the lawyers. It must be
remembered, too, that though the white
men of the south may be blameworthy the
blacks are not blameless. The outrages
committed by the latter on unprotected
white women are often of such a sort as to
drive wise men mad. The cure for the evi*
if it could be applied would be to teach the
blacks to abandon such outrages, aud to
teach the whites, now that the blacks are
free, to treat them as freemen and fellow
citizens, just as we do in Canada. Then
they would, perhaps, learn to behave themselves like decent, law-abiding citizens.
orderly houses are confined to no part of the
city. Denver, with a population of 106,670,
reports that public sentiment is not sufficient to keep the gambling dens closed, but
they are not permitted by thepolice tospread
beyond one defined section. In all there
are sixty auch places in the city. The number of siloons waB 475, but they invariably
close at midnight. The disorderly houses
number 300. Detroit, with a population of
200,000, according to the returnB made, haB
1*2 gambling houses, 300 saloons and 85 dia-
orderly houses; St. Louis, population 450,-
00(1, has 2,000 saloons, always running, 257
disorderly houses and no open gambling;
Cleveland, population 261,000, 1,500 saloons,
So disorderly houses aud no open gambling
places; Milwaukee, population 210,000, reported 1,575 saloons, 64 disorderly houses,
confined to one district, and no open gambling places. The statistics for Omaha are
not given, but it is reported to be the
wickedeBt city in the United States.

The Sale of Show Poultry.
Editor Tblegrau.
I observed from your issue of yesterday,
in reference to the Poultry Show, that Mr.
Dempster objects to cutting rates fur auctioning the birds. As I am the only other
auctioneer iu the city I think there must be
some explanation necessary. I was approached by one of the committee some time
ago, and waa aBked if I would givo my
services gratuitously in return for a free
advertisement in the society's catalogue.__!
agreed to do so, and the sale of the birds by
auction waa given to me. I subsequently
taw :tu advertisement by Measrs. Dempster
k Co. announcing the 8ale hy them of the
birds, but took no notice of it, having beeu
instructed myself. I, however, interviewed
the secretary, who wiote me a letter stating
there was some misunderstanding, aud suggesting that I should share the auction with
Mr. Demp8ter, each takiug a night for the
sale. I was prepared to do this but in the
face of Mr. Dempster's letter to the society,
I do not wish to take any part in it. What
ia more to the point, I propose to have a
poultry sale about the same time in the
shape of some fine turkeys aud geese for
your Christmas dinner.

Deserves Heavy Punishment.
San Fr��ni'1si*o, Dec. 13.���About nine
o'clock thia morning smoke was perceived
issuing from the forward hold of the steamer
Corona which was being loaded here for San
Diego and way portB. All hands were
immediately put to work discharging cargo
aud after a considerable quantity had beeu
jettisoned, two cases of matches which were
marked "wooden ware,"' were found to be
the cause of the conflagaration. They had
been Bent down to the steamer by a prominent buaiue<a man, as "wooden ware" in
order it i8 believed to evade the high rate of
fn ight which ia charged on matches. The
shipment of all inflammable material without due notice to ship ownerB and wharf
authorities is a violation of the law, and it
is uaderbtood that proceedings will be instigated against the guilty parties at an
early date. Had not the fire been discovered when it was, in all probability the
steamer and her valuable cargo would have
been completely destroyed.

ground of his past services to his native

doubt very much if it will be made. Of late

THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL
Victoria   Harbor to bo Fortified���Work
to bo Commenced In January,
Victoria, Dec. 13.���Shortly after January, work will be commenced on the Esquimau forti6eations by the Royal Engineers',
under Major Muirhead, who h-��ve replaced
"0" battery in the occupation of the Work
Point barracks. The former owners have
vacated the Belnvm farm and its transfer
to the Imperial Government has been completed in the quietest manner possible.
There are some 260 acres in the estate which
is situated just behind the well known lighthouse marking the harbor entrance. On the
farm, near the water is a rock standing I IK)
feet above high water, and upon this rock
the priucipal fort is to be built. This will
be the first portion of the work undertaken.
A modern fort built upon this eminence will
command the entrance to both Esquimn.lt
and Victoria harbors and make them practically impregnable. Work on the submarine forts will be deferred until late in
the spring.
The Stroebel Trial,
The defence opened this morning in the
trial of Albert Stroebel, for the murder of
John Marshall at Huntingdon on April 19th,
The case for the Crown was closed with the
silent testimony of Marshall's lamp, which
had been filled with oil on the previous i!ay
and left in a room under the court seal upon
adjournment of the court. The seals were
broken on the conclusion of the case for the
prosecution, the lamp still being found half
full of oil and burning brightly, thus disproving the argument of the defence that it
was not possible for it to be burning wheu
found by officer Moresby on April 20th,
if lighted by Marshall at the usual
time on the evening of the 19th. The
feature of the seventh day of the trial
was the announcement by Justice Walkem
that he could no longer permit wholesale
Attacks on the character of Crown witnesses,
which had been made a feature of the defence. The witnesses had, he said, presented him with a round rohiu demanding protection from insult and it was just that they
should be protected.

Marshall Sinclair, the unsuccessful candidate for the New Westminster mayoralty,
although a temperance man, gave the prohibition movement rather a set back in a
recent, address to the Westminster electors,
hy declaring that prohibition was no concern of a mayor and he did not wish to
thrust his principles unwillingly down
people's throats. He practically avowed
his belief that he regarded prohibition as a
losing cause. Mr. Sinclair indeed grew
very angry, because some provincial papers
had in mistake described him as a prohibitionist.

Mr. Justice Walkem, in the course of the
Stroebel oase on Monday, commented most
indignantly on the manner in which counsel
for the defence sought to blacken the character of the witnesses for the Crown and declared his view that the course thus taken
in more than one instance was utterly unjustifiable and likely to do the prisoner
more harm than good. The evidence for
the Crown is concluded, and the examination of witnesses for the defence commenced
yesterday. Eight or nine witnesses will be
called and the trial will probably last some
days longer. This, the second trial of the
case, has so far, taken over a week.
At a recent meeting of the Vancouver
school board a Mr. Diusmore preferred
several charges against Mr. Tom, priucipal
of the East End School, amongst them being
that he punished some of the pupils in a
brutal manner; that ho caused to be published an article of a damaging character in
the World, thathe had used contemptible
language towariU the pupils, and also concerning the parents of the East End School
district; and finally Ihat his actions and
manner had driven pupils away from the
school, and had caused parents to be put to
expense in educating their children.
Matters at the school are far from being in
a satisfactory condition, says the World, as
a gang of the roughest, boys conspire to be a
source of perpetual worry to Principal Tom,
who, under the circumstances, is not having
the most pleasaul of times. On Monday
this crowd of unrestrained urchins smashed
in a number of windows and gave so much
other trouble that the assistance of the
police had to be called in.
One Bright Spot.

Morley, Chief Secretary for Ireland, respon-
sibe for these abuses. It waB impossible to
remedy in a year the evils of c century.
The Irish people were wasting away.
They wore rackrented and oppressed. Still
there waB one bright spot in the situation;
peace and order had been maintained in Ireland and thus the croaking predictions of
her enemies had been falsified.

Further Details of Trouble in Brazil.
Nkw York, Dec. 13.���The steamer
Peninisula, Captain Bittencourt, which
arrived last night from Brazilian ports reports having left Santos Oct. 211. The feeling at Santos was decidedly in favor of
Admiral Mello. At Rio Janeiro there were
a number of warships iu the harbor, and the
Peninsula had to move to avoid stray tliots
fired in the almost daily duel between the
ships and forts on shore. The Peninsula
left Rio Janeiro on November 6th, or two
days before tho steamer Saibrno, which
arrived here December 3rd, Captain Bittencourt had heard nothing of the reported
capture of a powder magazine at Nictheroy
as previously rumored.
Mr. R. Z. Yimeny, salesman for an electrical corporation, who returns after a trip
through the South American countries, sajs
that there is a great fear among the people
at Rio Janeiro to express any opinion prejudicial to the government,. The prison at
Rio Janeiro, he stated, was filled with outspoken Mello sympathizers, who had been
arrested for expressing their feelings. It
was understood that Mello was deterred
from attacking the city of Rio Janeiro by
the fear that Peixoto would in retaliation
put to de.i.th these persons. This, Mr.
Yimeny stated, was the generally accepted
reason for Mello confining his attacks to the
forts in the harbor of Rio Janeiro. Almost
all the firing by the government was directed against Villegiagne. At Bahia everybody
refused to express an opinion and little if
any interest seemed to be taken in the
fight. There were no vessels in the harbor.
At Pernambuco there was one guard ship, a
vessel of small armament, in the interest nf
the government. While at Pernambuco,
Jose Mariauno was arrested by direction of
President Peixoto, as a dangerous character.
Mariauno is a very popular aud prominent
citizen and the president feared the effect of
his extending his influence to Mello, especially as it was understood that he had strong
leanings in that direction. The city of
Pernambuco is under martial law. At Para,
which place the Peninsular left on November 26th., there had been considerable excitement, caused by the anticipated attack
of a large body of natives and Indians. Extensive preparations were made for their
reception. Volunteer companies were
formed and the tugs in the harbor armored.
The preparations so frightened the natives
that they retired without making an attack.

Russian war. In spite of all this the
British authorities still go on in the
same old way, adopted perhaps in the
first instance by the sailing master of
Noah's Ark. Wars nowadays are settled
much quicker thon they were in the reign of
Queen Anne. Their Lordships' coal fleet
might sail out of Milford Haven bound for
Enquimalt amidst profound peace and find
itself captured somewhere in mid-ocean before it knew that war had been declared at
all. For these reasons we certain'y think
that at least a thorough and impartial test should be made by
the experts of Her Majesty's fleet
of the steam producing powers of the
Canmore coal. If it will drive locomotives
to the satisfaction of that eminently prac-
ticul body, the C.P.R, company, we fail to
see why it should not fill the requirements
of the Pacific squadron. Is it possible that
the Welsh coal barons have too much of a

Carrying Coal to Nowcastle.
Attention is called to the superiority of
the British Columbia and Northwest Territory coal by the Calgary Tribune, which
editorially remarks on tlie peculiarity of
importing black diamonds from Wales to
supply the Pacific; squadron. It says:���
There is an old saying concerning the task
of carrying coals to Newcastle. Perhaps
everybody is not aware that the Lords
of tho Admiralty in their wisdom are
constantly engaged upon this very business.
It seems almost inconceivable that, with an
inexhaustible supply of the best steam coal
in the world within 600 miles of Esquimau,
they should he bringing coal out from
Wales for delivery to the men-of-war
on the Pacific station. Suoh iB nevertheless a fact. A few years ago when
the propertits of the coal found in
the Canmore beds were only just being discovered, this course had a reason.
But now that our Northwest anthracite has
met and beaten the 1'enniylvania coal on
the line of the C, 1'. R., it sinus a moat extraordinary thing that a supply of coal so
favotably situated should still be neglected
by the coal authorities. It is quite obvious that if our Paoific fleet is
to be coaled from Wales, collapse
would speedily follow ou the declaration of hostilities. The ooal from Canmore
on the other hand could be as easily procured in war as in peace. There is ooal of
first-claas quality and readily procurable. It
lies close to what will no doubt be a most
important   base   of  supplies   in   the next

In 1858 a party consisting of Lowell,
Emerson, Agnssiz, Judge Hoar, W. J.
Stilhnan and seyeral others spent a few
weeks uf the summer in the Adiron-
lacka.
The journey of the company gave rise
to an incident which has often been in-
BOrrectly told, and which, as a curious
comment upon human fame, deserves to
be told again. The coming of the party
was of course made known along the
track it would follow, and at Keese-
ville, where the common roads then
ended, the town was agog to see the
"philosophers," as they were at once
collectively called. But neither Emerson nor Lowell was known, Agassiz being the only celebrity to that world, owing to his having recently refused the
offer by the emperor of France of the
keepership of the Jardin des Planted at
Paris and a senator/ship with a lur^e salary, ho preferring to devote himself to
science nnd America.
The selectmen of tho town waited on
the visitors early in the morning, after
their arrival to pay their respects, they
said, but really to see a man who bad
no regard for money and distinction.
They were received formally, thi' spokesman bringing a copy of a per odical
winch contained a portrait of A..tfHssiz,
which he produced and carefully compared with the lineaments of the professor until he had satisfied himself of
tho authenticity of the individual, when
ho addressed his followers with, "Yea,
it's him!" And they then proceeded to
shake hands with him, the rest of the
party being ignored.���W. J. Stillman in

of two needlehke towers or pillars connected with a scroll. The old Spanish
coins marked with the pillar device
were frequently referred to aa "piliar

That it is a combination of "H. S.,"

That it is a combination of P. and S.
from peso duro, signifying "hard dollar." In Spanish accounts peso id contracted by writing the S. over the P.,
and placing it over the sum.
According to one writer the symbol of
the dollar is a monogram of the letters
"V" "S" and "J," the dollar being
originally a "thaler" coined in tho valley of Sant Joachim, Bohemia, and
known as "Joachim thaler," and the
monogram the initials of tbe words,

Art Instruction.
An artist had sold a picture for an exorbitant price and the purchaser sued to
recover. The attorney for the purchaser
was making the artist uncomfortable by
his questions.
"Now, sir," he said in that pleasant,
ingratiating manner of lawyers with a
witness, "do you think anybody oould
see beauty in that picture?"
"Some persons certainly could," replied the artist.
"You think the initiated In technical
matters might have no difficulty in understanding your work?"
"1 am sure they would not."
"Do you think you could make me see
any beauty in that picture?" thia most
superciliously,
"Probably not now, sir"���and the artist was most humble���"bos once I oould
have done so easily."
"Now, sir, how is that? I don't understand you.    Explain, if you please."
���'That's quite easy. sir. I could have
done it simply by employing you as my
counsel in this oase."���Detroit Free

Oourt��ar Among the Swedes.
The Swedes are a quiet, taciturn people. There is no jostling even among
the lowest classes. When a train leaves
a platform or a steamboat a pier, the
lookers on lift their hats to the departing passengers and bow to them, a compliment which is returned by the passengers. You are expected to lift your
hat to tho shabbiest person you meet in
the street, and to enter a shop, office or
bank with the baton is considered a bad
breach of good manners. In retiring
from a restaurant you are expected to
bow to the occupants. Bowing and hat
lifting is so common that the people
seem to move around more slowly than
elsewhere, in order to observe the courtesy.-

With a gasp of diBinay Laura hastily
threw open the window that looked out
on the river, and let in the first rosy glow
of the dawn. Not a sign of trouble
here, save the forsaken bed; every item
of the humble furniture was arranged
with careful neatness. Not a sign of
anything wrong. Stay! what was that
gleam of white upon the patchwork
counterpane? A lettor! Laura took it
to the light, and red with a sickness at
the heart, "For Captain Diiiulas���only
for him," in the handwriting of her
sister. The last throe words were un
dwlined.
CHAPTER XIII.
THE GARRET.
The letter dropped from Laura's nerveless hands; she burst, into tears, and
sank down in her misery, bowing her
head upon the window-ledge. It was all
true, then���all that she had dreaded, all
that she had forseen. Dorothy had deserted her home, forsakon her husband
in the very hour when he would be burning with anticipation of the long-yearned for joy oi holding her once moro in
his embrace. The cruelty, the wickedness of the act shocked Laura unspeakably, for her esteem and affection for her
sister's husband was deeply rooted.
Aud worse, infinitely worse, than the
act itself appeared the motive of Dorothy's unfaithfulness. Laura could not
doubt that motive; she saw it ail with
ghastly clearness by the light of her
knowledge of her sister's unstable character, and the remembrance of careless
words, significant actions, which had
long caused her poignant uneasiness.
Dorothy hud tied with a lover, and the
letters which had fallen into Laura's
bauds pointed to the worthless and contemptible Ralph Kestrel as the partner
of this treachery. What could be done?
Had Laura come in time to save that
home from ruin, her sister from Jifelong
wretchedness, and poor Benjamin Dundas from a broken heart? She feared
not. There was but one hope; Kestrel
had seemed an unwilling lover; perhaps
Dorothy had fled to him against his wish,
in which case he might refuse to receive
her; and in her despair she might submit herself to Laura's persuasions, and
return to her home in time to receive her
husband, Laura resolved to seek out
Kestrel at once. She would confide in
Muriel O'Connor, and Muriel would assist her in this terrible juncture. But
O, for some immediate clue to the whereabouts of the fugitive! Laura shuddered at the thought of what evils might result from delay. The letter for "Captain
Dundas���only for him" she dared not
open. She would uot violate the sacred-
ness of a wife's confession; nor was
there any likelihood of discovering in
such a letter auy hint of what she wished to know.
She vainly sought for other indications
of Dorothy's destination. The house had
been most carefully stripped of all such
traces, if any such had ever existed.
Then it occurred to Laura that the woman who had lived with Dorothy as assistant and companion might be able to
tell ber something, But where was she?
If in the house, why had she not responded to the night summons, and why had
the door been left unfastened after Dorothy had gone out? Had Dorothy departed without the knowledge of Susan
Pegg? Or had they left the house together? To elucidate this mystery,
Laura climbed the dark stairway to the
servant's room.
Upon the pallet-bed. in a shadowed
recess of the garret, a sleeper lay. Laura
could perceive the on���tne of the form
against the whitewashed wall by the
faint light that crept in at the distant
narrow window.
"Susan!" she called; "flown, hi ihat
you?"
The figure torned 6>ow_ly aod relapsed into a heavy sleep. Laura went
across to the bed, and, stooping, laid her
hand heavily upon the woman's shoulder.
"Get up!" she cried passionately, hex
heart enraged by what she unreasonably
considered the culpable negligence of
this guardian of her sister; "get up, I
say, you wicked, wicked wretch! Rouse
yourself! Come here and look me in the
face I"
As the woman half-rose from the bed,
Laura caught her by the arm and drag-
ffed her with the resistless strength of
ler indignation across the floor to the
window. Then turning upon her furiously, she cried:
"Where is my sister?"
The trembling creature fell cowering
at her feet, and, raising a stony, piteoua
face to Laura's,  amazed her with the
night of���Dorothy herself 1
CHAPTER XrV.
" Dorothy's DR���4���."
A stony, piteous faco. worn and wild
as that of a madwoman, peering upward
in tbe cold morning light through
streams of soft brown hair. Laura kx>k-
ed upon it with a throb of pity. It waa
like beholding her own face in a cruel
mirror that blasted all its beauty and its
youth. She saw her own blue eyes grown
faint and lustreless, wild with terror and
despair; she saw her own lineaments
grown old and hard, and livid with a
deathly pallor.
Could thia be the fresh young bearrtr,
the playful coquette who had newer seemed to give the world one serious thought?
She raised her tenderly iu her arms.
"Dorothy���sister! dear Dorrie I What
has happened?"
The girl stared vacantly at her aa if
she did not htar. Her lips moved, but
she uttered no sound. Her limbs were
rigid in Laura's strong embrace.
"Sister, for God's sake Bp nk to r_e|
Ton know me, dear, do you not?"
Slowly the wild eyes gathered their
vision into life and reason . the hand that
hung listlessly was raised until it, touched Laura's cheek. Then came a change,
terrible and yet welcome in the painful
tension of the moment.    Dorothy gave
Iff,

along. low, wailing cry. and fell upon
her sister's neck in a flood of violent
hysterical weeping.
Laura held her to her bosom for some
moments, wondering, dreading; then, as
the lit increased, became alarmed, and
strove to soothe her, She would have
placed the convulsed form again upon
the bed, but Dorothy shrank back from
it with a shudder, and, slipping from her
sister's embrace, rushed through the
door and down the stairs to the parlour
below, where Laura, following, found
her prostrate upon the Soor. And there
she lay, refusing hil aid, all comfort, her
sobs bursting forth as if her very heart
Would weep itself away. Laura tried
all measures to compose her in vain:
now murmuring soft, sympathetic endearments, now chiding her for her
weakness, now impli iring her to be calm,
and give some explanation of her distress.
Still Dorothy wept on, still she lay prone
upon the ground, her face buried on her
fair arms, over which her hair fell in
tangled masses.
At last Laura rose, and leaving her.
descended to the kitchen, where she
busied herself in the preparation of a restoring and consolatory cup of tea.
A feeling of angry impatience had suc-
ceeded to the anxiety and alarm which
had hitherto over-strained every nerve,
and the gentle Laura conversed quite
shrcwishly with the tea-caddy and the
kettle, the refractory fire and the clattering cups and saucers.
"How can she go on so! Foolish, ungrateful girl! What is there to cry for?
Has she no sense? Why can't she tell
me all about it, whateverii is? Of course
it is that bad worthless feilow she is
breaking her heart over, because he
would not steal her from her husband,
ruin her. degrade her! 0, but he was
good to spare her! I loathe him, but he
can't be utterly bad. But Dorrie, my
own sister, married to dear old Ren, to
care like that for another man than ljer
husband���such a cur, such a disgusting
brute, such a coarse, vulgar��� But no!
he gave me her letters, he would not encourage her; it is because of that she is
crying there now. I must not say a
word against him.
"God help her! How will Me receive
poor Ben? O fool, fool, fool! 0, Dorrie,
Dorrie! how could you? What a disgrace! WKat wickedness���what horrible
wickedness and shame! And I might
have been too late tosave her���I was too
late; I should have been if Ralph Kestrel
had come here last night, as she of course
hoped he would come. But 1 am not too
late now, with God's help to make all
well. When she has recovered a little
1 will make her tell me all, and then I
will speak to her very, very seriously;
and when Ben comes home he shall find
her at least reconciled to be a faithful
wife to him for the rest of her life."
Thus revolving her benevolent projects,
snd devising means to carry them out
with the single-niiudedness of a Jesuit,
Laura got together alight breakfast, and
carried it up stairs to the sitting-room.
Dorothy was no longer there. A momentary fear that she had left the house
was dispelled by discovering her in the
adjacent room, vaguely searching about
the bed for some object she seemed to
miss.
Laura shrewdly guessed that this object was the  letter addressed  "Captain
Dundas���only for bim, "which lay safely
hidden in the pocket of Laura's dress;
but she said nothing, merely inviting
Dorothy to breakfast iu the most commonplace tone she could assume. Nor
did Dorothy make any reference to the
letter. She liad become calm, and suffered herself to lie clothed in a dressing-
gown, and led to the table.
But her manner was strangely absent
and fitful. She ate nothing, but con-
btantly gazed ��r>,ut the ruma, a> If unable to associate her surroundings with
circumstances vividly in her recollection.
Laura, watching her quietly without
appearing to do so, began to entertain
fears for her sister's reason, aud for some
time endeavoured, whhout Bucoe_i, to
draw her into conversation.
Suddenly Dorothy startled her sudor
with an abrupt question:
"Are you Laura, my sister?"
Laura replied with all the calmness
she could assume.
"Yes, dear; Laura, your sister I" Why
do you ask such a question?"
The other gazed at her a uuuiuiil intently, and then pursued:
"And 1 am Dorothy? Are we a_*p-
ing, Laura?    Is it all a dream?"
Laura rose and went to her side.
"My darling, lake my hand. There I
kiss you ; don't you feel my touch?"
"We an' both awake?"
"Certainly we are."
"Then the other was a dream?",\
"The other?"
"0, God be thanked, it moat have been
a dream!"
"Yes, yes," said Laura soothingly.
"You have hud a bad dream "liauur��
of it.    I found von sleeping."

We refer to our 20 per cent, reduction sale, which is the town talk just at present. Everything we promised in the way of re-
ductionsit has been proven we have done. Misrepresenta1 ion may draw trade to-day, but it hurts the trade of the future. The most
careful and judicious buyers in the district have informed us that when they require a first-class article, at a low price, their experience has been that it saves a great deal of time and worry by comii g direct to us. We make a specialty of Fine Goods, and
have imported material into N anaimo which it was heretofore imposbible to procure outside of the large Cities. This means a bigger
outlay, and necessitates our carrying a stock of between $35,000 and $40,000, but we have to do it to get the assortment.
We'have received another shipment of goods from Scotland to-day This lot of cases contains Flannels, Black and Navy
Serges, Meltons, and a large variety of Black Figured Dress Goods. We have also received a half dozen of White Blankets, as a
trial order.   These goods are really something choice, and as there is only a few pair we expect them to sell very quickly.
While you are figuring what you will have for your father, mother, sister, brother, or someone else's brother, for Christmas,
we would suggest your calling and taking a look through our Immense Stock, when you will readily find something to suit you.

frozen sidewalks which, where there is any
grade, are very difficult to keep a safe footing on.
Two brick houses are in course of construction on the Newcastle townsite. There
are now a large number of fine houses in
that locality which promises to become the
Mayfair of Nanaimo.

few having lately been laid off for the lumber
close season. The saw mill it is expected
will run as at present for tbe  whole winter.

got his leg badly bruised whilst attending a

on his leg, jamming it badly.
Apropos of Little Puck, and the question
which iB always asked of a new play, as to
whether it is a good one, it may be remarked that such a question is never asked
concerning the play mentioned, its good
points being so well known that next Wednesday is bound to see a crowded house at
tho Nanaimo Opera House.
The total number of entries for the poultry
show so far is 350. A special prize of $25 in
gold, for the best display, is offered by Mr.
S. M. Robins, superintendent of the New
Vancouver Coal Company, open to occupants
of land purchased or leased from the company outside the city limits. A great number of late entries are from Victoria aud the
Mainland. A prize will be awarded by the
society for the beat display of thorough bred
pigeons.
