London*, Dec. 18.���The East India Loan
Bill came up on its third reading in the
Hiiitsi; of Commons to-day. In the discussion of the measure, the right; hon. Henry
Chaplin, president, of the Board of Agriculture ia Lord Salisbury's laat cabinet, traced
the monetary troubles of Iudia to the
abandonment of bi-metallism. The closing
of the mint had deprived the Government
of the largest market in the world for silver
and had lowered the value of the metal
beyond precedent. The ministry, Mr.
Chaplin added, as erted that the
Brussels monetary conference was broken
up because other nations would hive nothing to do with bimetallism. The fact was
that the conference had failed, as the imperial German chancellor recently stated,
because nothing could be done with Great
Britain. Under Mr. Gladstone there was
no chance of anything being attempted. If
the India Council's bills continued to be not
sold in the future, what would the Government do. It could not reduce expenditures
nor increase taxation in India. Could the
Government go on borrowing? It would
lead to bankruptcy in the immediate future.
If the Government saw a way out of the
difficulty it ought to take Parliament into
its confidence.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Chancellor
of t he Exchequer, paid that there had been
a great fall iu the price of silver under the
Salisbury Government, yet the '-overnment
did not pr ipose bi-metallism, and that although Mr Chaplin was then a member of
the cabinet. The alleged cause of the
failure of the Brussels monetary conference
was incorrec, for on the first day of the
conference, before the English delegates had
made any statement, the German delegates
announced that their government could not
accept bi-metallism. For the experiment
being tried in India time must be allowed
If it should prove unsuccessful, it could bo
corrected. He fully believed that it would
succeed.
The Right Hon. George Goschen, formerly
Chancellor of the Exchecquer, held that the
position of India was critical, but he was
opposed to any attempt to surmount the
difficulty by puttiuganimportduty on silver.
Such a course, he maintained, would aggravate, instead of relieving the difficulty.
The bill then passed its third reading without a division of the House being taken.

A Consul Dismissed.
Montreal, Dec.  Ii).���Mr.   J.   C.  Alvas
de Lima, Brazilian Consul to Canada, and
stationed at Montreal, has been summarily
dismissed by the Brazilian Government.
This action is believed to be the result of
the part taken by Mr. de Lima, iu sending
two legal geatleinnu from Montreal to New
York to prevent the sailing of the war
vessels purchased iu the United States for
the Brazilian Government. Mr. de Lima
has issued an address to the American
people, in which he defends the
course taken by him. He says that
the last time he was in New York, it
was at the request of Senor Mendonca that
he visited the shipB, with the government
contractor. The sight filled his heart with
loathing and regret. He conversed with
the captains and expressed the hope that
the ships would arrive after the revolution
was over. He also remarked that he would
rather a thousand times arbitrate wiih his
countrymen, technically called rebels, than
sap the resources of his people by fitting
out cruisers with mercenaries paid to kill
his own countrymen.

vessa streets, and other points where the
theatres ate situated. The playhouses were

patrons, uud the effett was tremendous.
Frightened women fled shrieking along the
street, manv carriage horses dashed among
the pedestrians, aud above all the screaming
of shells, tho whizzng of bullets and tne
rattling of rifles caused great confusion.
This was the result of an att>*ck made from

Looks Like Business.
New York, Dec. 18.���Mr. Charles R.
Fliut received a cable to-day from Captain
Baker, of the Nictheroy, stating that the
vessel is now under orders of tho Brazilian
minister of marine and is, therefore, ready
to meet the insurgent vessels. Until she
was turned over to the Brazilian
government she was a public
vessel, and her orders were to not
use her guus. She is now a full fledged
man of war. Captain Baker reports that
since the Fisk range finder which was delivered to him by the America had been put
in place the dynamite guu cau be fired with
remarkable accuracy even at a range of
three and a half miles. Mr. Flint also

commended the decision of the United
States Minister Thompson to protect American ships against Mello's blockade.

CLEVELAND ON HAWAII.
Grover's   Response   to  the Requost   for
More Information-A Detailed Recital.
Washington, Dec. 18.���lhe Piesident's
response to the resolutions passed by both
houses requesting information on Hawaiian
affairs, was sent to Congress to-day. In the
message the president says:
Though not able now to report definitely
any change in the situation, I am convinced
tha*, the difficulties lately created, both here
aud in Hawaii, and now standing in the way
of the solution through executive action of
the problem presented, renders it proper
and expedieut that the matter
should not be referred to the
broader authority and discretion of
Congress without full explanation
When the previous administration had end
ed its rule the Senate had under considera
tion a treaty providing tor the annexation
of the Hawaiian Islands territory to the
United Slates. Surely under our constitu
tional laws, the enlatgement of our limits as
manifested in the biglieBt altiibute bo begun
and entered upon as an executive mission,
in all things relating to the transaction
should be cleir aud free from suspicion Ad
ditional importance is attached to this par
ticular treaty of annexation because it con-
temp ated a departure from the unbroken
American tradition in providing additional
territory by annexing islands of the sea more
than two thousaud miles from our nearest
coast. These considerations might no',, of
themselves call for interference with the
completion of the treaty entered upon by the
previous administration, but it appeared
from documents accompanying the treaty
when submitted to the Senate that
the ownership of Hawaii was tendered to
us by the provisional government set up to
succeed tbe constitutional ruler of the
islands, who had been dethroned, and it did
not appear that such provisional government had the sanction either of popular
revolution or suffrage. It appeared that
the so-called committee of safety was ostensibly the cause of the revolt againBt the constitutional government of Hawaii, organized
on Saturday, 14th of January; that on Monday, 16th, United States forces landed at
Honolulu, from a naval vessel lying in its
harbor; that on the 17 th the scheme of the
provisional government was perfected, and
the proclamation naming its officers waa on
the fame date prepared and read at the
government building; that thereupon the
United States minister recognized the provisional government thus created; that two-
dayB afterwards, on the 19th day of Jan
nary, a commissioner representing such
government sailed for this country in a
steamer especially chartered for the occasion, arriving in San Francisco on the28th
of January, and in Washington on the 3rd
day of February; that on the next day he
had the first interview with the secretary of
Btate, and another on the 11th, when the
treaty of annexation was practically agreed
upon; on the 14th it was formally concluded, and on the loth transmitted to the
Senate.
Thus between the initiation of the scheme
for a provisional government for Hawaii on
the 14th day of January, and Bubmitsion to
the Senate of the treaty of annexation concluded with such government, the entire
interval was thirty-two days, fifteen of
which were spent by the Hawaiian commissioners in their journey lo Washington.
In the next place, upon the face of the
papers submitted with the treaty it clearly
appeared that there was an opeu and undetermined issue of fact of the most vital importance.
The message of the president accompanying
the treaty declares "the overthrow of the
monarchy waB not in any way prompted by
this government" and in a letter to the
president from the secretary of state also
submitted to the senate with the treaty tho
following passage occurs: "At the time the
provisional government took possession of
the government buildings, no troops or
offioors of the United States were present
or took any part whatever in the proceedings. No public recognition was accredited
to the provisional government by the United
States minister until after the queen's abdication and when they were effectively in
possession of the government buildings, the
archives, treasury, the harracks, police
station nnd all ihe potential machinery of
government."
But a proteBt also accompanied the said
treaty signed by the queen and her ministers
at the time she made way for the provisional government which explicitly stated
that she yielded to the superior force, the
United States, whose minister had caused
United States troops to be landed at Honolulu. He had declared he would support
Buch provisional government. The truth or
falsity of this protest is surely of the first
importance The truth or falsity ot the
piotest has beeu investigated. I conceived
it to be my du'.y therefore to withdraw the
treaty from the Senate for examination aud
meanwhile cause an accurate, full, impartial
investigation. I selected for the work of
investigation Mr. Jas. H. Blount of Georgia.
The president then goes on to say that
the next day, Tuesday the 17th,the committee of safety met and proclaimed a temporary provisional government. This by the
terms of the proclamation, was to exist
until the terms of union with the United
States had been negotiated, and
agreed upon. .The United States minister,
pursuant to agreement, reo'ganized this
government and before five o'clock announced to the queen's cabinet that he had done
bo. When our minister recognized the
provisional government, aa it was neither a
government, de facto nor tie jure. This recognition by our minister placed the government of the queen in a position of the most
perilous perplexity. She knew she could
not withstand the power of the United
States but believed she might safely trustits
justice. Accordingly some hours after the
recognition of the provisional government
by the United States minister, the palace,
barracks and police station, were withallmilli-
tsry resources of the country delivered upby
the queen upon a representation made her
that her cause would thereafter be received
at Washington; and while protesting she
surrendered to the superior force of the
United States that she yielded her authority
only to prevent a collision with the armed
forces and loss of life, and only until such
time aB the United States, upon the facts
being presented to it, should undo the action
and reinstate her. The provisional government with this unanswered protest in hand
hastened to negotiate with tho United
States for the permanent banishment of the
queen from power and for the sale ot her
kingdom.
I believe that a candid, thorough examination of the facts will force the conviction
that the provisional government owes ita existence to the armed invasion by tho United
States. As I apprehend the situation we
are brought face to face with the following
conditions: "The constitutional government
of Hawaii waB overthrown without drawing
a Bword or tiring a shot, by a proces8 every
step of which, it may safely be asserted,
is directly traceable to and dependent
for its success upon the agency of the
United Stales, acting through its diplomatic aud naval representatives of the
annexation committee, which would never
have existed but for the landing of the
United States forces. The committee would
never have exposed themselves to pains and
penalties by undertaking the subversion of
the queen's government; but for the presence of the United States forces the committee would not have proclaimed the pro-
visional government, aud finally, but for the
lawless occupation of Honolulu ujder a
false pretext by Uuited States forces, and
Stevens' recognition of the provisional government when the United States forces
were its Bole support, the queen or her government rfould never have yielded to the
provisional government.
Believing, therefore, that the United
States could uot under the circumstances
disclosed annex the islands without justly
incurring the imputation of acquiriug them
by an unjustifiable method, 1 shall not
again submit the treaty of annexation to
the Senate for its consideration aud instruction.
Minister WiIIib' instructions, a copy
of which accompanies this message,
have directed him to inform the
provisional lioverument that in the
present instance our duty does not in my
opinion eud with refusing to consummate
this questionable transaction. It. haB beeu
the boast of our government to do juatice in
all thiugB with no regard to the strength or
weakness of those with whom it deals. By
au act of war committed with the participation of the diplomatic representative of the.
United Statea authority the government of
a feeb'_ and confiding people has been overthrown. Wrong has thus been done which
due regard for our national character as well
as the rightB of the injured people requires
that we should endeavor to repair. The
provisional government has not assumed a
republican or other constitutional form, hut
has rema'.ied a mere executive council oligarchy, and has not sought lo tiud a permanent basis or proper support. Indeed,
representatives of the government
frankly avow that Hawaii can beat be
ruled by arbitrary despotic power. The
United States cannot possibly be put in
the position of countenancing wrong after
its commission auy more than it can consent to it iu advance.[(In that ground it con-
not allow itself to refuse to redress the injury inflicted through abuse of power by
officers clothed with ita authority and uu-
iform; and on the aame ground, if a feeble
but friendly state in danger be robbed of ita
independence and its sovereignty by the
miBuae of the name and power of the United
States, the Statea cannot fail to vindicate
its honor and its Benae of justice by earnest
effortB to make all feaaible reparation. In
behalf of the queen as well aa her euemies,
we should be willing to adopt auch a course
aa to meet these conditions, and viewed
from the fact that both the queen and lhe
provisional government had at one time
apparently acquiesced iu the refeieace of
the case to the United States government
aud considering the further fact that in any
event the provisional government by its
own declared limitation is only to
exist until the terms in tbe United Statea
have been negotiated and agreed upon,
he hoped that after the assurance of the
memberB of the government that such a
union could not be coriBumated they miuht
compass a peaceful adjustment of the difficulty.
Actuated by these desires and purposes, 1
instructed Willis to advise the queen and
her supporters of my desire to aid in her
rest oration of the state existing before the
lawless landing of the United States forces
at Honolulu on the Kith of January last, if
such restoration could be effected upon terms
providing for clemency, good will and justice
to all parties concerned. The conditions
suggested in the instructions show and contemplate a general amnesty to all thoBe concerned in setting up the provisional government and recognition of all its bonafde acts
and obligations. Ill abort the restored government, should resume authority as if ita
continuity had not been interrupted.
These conditions did not prove acceptable to the queen, and though she has
been informed they will be insisted upon
and unless acceded to, the efforts at present
being put forth to aid in the restoration ot
her government will cease. I have not
learned that she is willing to yield them her
acquiescence. The check which my plans
have encounteted prevented their presentation to members of the provisional government, which with unfortuuateand public misrepresentation of the situation and exaggerated statements of the sentiment of our
people obviously injured the prospects of
successful executive mediation. Therefore
I submit this communication; with its
accompaning exhibits, embracing Blount's
report.
The statements wero taken by himself,
with instructions given both to Blount and
Willis and the correspondence connected
with the affair in hand, commending the
subject to the extended powers and wide
discretion of Congreaa.

THE UNCERTAIN  TOMATO.
SroM ��*Toas4*keepern to Whom Canning Ole
Tomato I. a Hopeless Tusk.
The easiest fruit in the world to can, a
tew housekeepers will Bay when speaking
of the tomato, but many more complain
of failure, and after losing both fruit and
jars for all their pains have given up the
tomato as hopeless, so far as they are con,-
oerned.
One woman who formerly belonged to the
second class now boasts herself mistress of
the tomato canning process and oilers, in
Good Housekeeping, the following direo
tions as sure to bring success:
Wash the tomiitoes and remove ths
stems. Have a wide kettle or agate basin
on the stove, plunge in as much fruit as ia
convenient ly accommodated at one time and
remove with a long handled skimmer as
soon aa the skins crack. Dash cold water
ovor the tomatoes, and they will almost
pare themselves. Slip off the skins and
lay the fruit in an earthen dish. When
ready to fill the Jars, set one in a milk pan
and slice the tomatoes into it, With a
wooden masher push down the fruit as thu
jar fills and turn off the juice and seeds
which will rise to the top. Cooking will
render the fruit quite juicy enough, and
this discarding of the seeds and liquid part
appears to be necessary to success.
WThen all the jars are filled to within
three inches of the tops, lay on the covers
and set the jars ovor the fire in a boiler of
lukewarm water, placing n ruck or support
of some sort beneath them. A sufficient
quantity to complete filling the jars may
be stewed in an agtite kettle, or one jar may
be emptied for that purpose. As the fruit
rises in the jars in boiling, push it down occasionally to release the air bubbles from
the interstices of the fruit. Keep boiling
for an hour. At the end of that time lift
the jars out onto a dry board, fill each till
it runs over and senl immediately with a
new rubber.   Store in a dark place.
Cho��ol��t. Bavarian Cream.
Bonk half a box of gelatin in 4 table-
���gpoonfuls of water for 20 minutes, boil a
pint of milk, into which stir 2 ounces of
grated chocolate and the dissolved gelatin.
Stir till all is dissolved, set the saucepan on
the hack of the stove with enonyii sugar
to sweeten well and add a tablespoouful
of vanilla Stir while cooling, aud as it
^rows tiflck mix witii it 2 cupfuls of cream

MALICIOUS MISREPRESEXTA TION.
The local evening sheet of yesterday
makes a desperate attempt to misrepresent
and place in a false light what we said in
our issue of Sunday last on thu subject of
municipal affairs. The evident purpose of
the article in question was to arouse public
attention to the subject of the forthcoming
municipal elections, with the view of having
the best available names put in nomination
and the best men elected by our citizens.
We pointed out that demagogues and ad-
veturers are not wanted���demagogues claiming to represent special classes and interests,
and appealing to the same; adventurers,
pretending to be animated by the strongest
public zeal, but in reality seeking their own
gain and advantage chiefly. Such men have
been elected to positions of public trust in
other towns than this ere now, to the public
loss. This well-meant advice, which ought
always to be borne in mind by electors in
similar cases, is maliciously misconstrued into
meaning that according to us the existiug
aldermen and mayor of Nanaimo must be
adventurers and demagogues. It is scarcely
necessary for us to say that we intended
nothing of the sirt, have not said it nor
hinted it, that it, is simply a concoction of
our neighbor's, written with the very obvious
intention of misrepresenting us and doing
us injury. But, we have too much confidence
in the intelligence of the people of Nanaimo
to imagine for a moment that they will be
misled by the malicious construction put
upon our words by our evening contemporary. They will see it in its true light and
despise it accordingly, as the vain effort of a
vulgar mud-slinger. For the rest, we repeat,
there is much room for improvement on the
streets of this town, and iu the way in
which they arc kept. It should offend no
man to say they are often in a
very dirty and miry state, and that it
will be the duty of the new council to look
sharply after them. Nor is it a reflection
on the present or former councils to ask the
ratepayers to elect the best men for the new
council, intelligent men, solid mon, men
who have the best interests of Nanaimo at
heart and who understand them. Such
men may be former members of the council
or they may be new men���we Hnid nothing
on that subject and hinted nothing. It remained for the evening sheet to do so.
But the public, we doubt not, will understand and appreciate its motives,
THE WILSON TARIFF.
of  the
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer aays
proposed Wilson tariff:
"The Canadian is happy in the prospect
of the enactment of the VVilsou tariff bill.
The reduction of duties proposed is far
better for Canada thau a treaty of reciprocity, because under the VVilsou bill
Canada practically gels everythiug and gives
nothing in return. The Wilson tariff bill
puts buckwheat, corn oats, rye, wheat and
flour on the free list if Canada will do the
same, if not, a duty of *20 per cent, is to bo
levied. Canada is not afraid of the retaliatory duty, it is uot high enough to alarm
her; she can impose prohibitory duties
son Amerioan products tor her own projection.
"With the reduction of the duty on barley, hay, beaus, potatoes, eggs, horses,
lambs, hops, poultry, butter, cheese ann
vegetables lo a merely nominal figure, anil
with apples, bacon, hams, beef, pork, mutton, cabbages, uursery slock and wool on
the free list, Canada can frame a tariff that
will help nothing but her own selfish interests. *        *
"In spite of the high tariff on wool the
Canadians sent more than 1,000,00*0 pounds
into the United StateB last year. With
wool on the free list the result may be foreseen. Canada confidently expects tliat the
exports to the United States under the Wilson tariff will far exceed the exports before
the McKinley tariff was enacted, and
Canada's expectations are sure to be realized. The farmers cf New York, Vermont,
and Washington will be exposed to a ruinous flood of Canadian products."
Of course Canada in framing her tariff
will commit her own interests. In doing so
she will follow the example of the United
States, which in such matters haB uniformly consulted its own interests, or what it
supposed to bo its own interests, not those
of Canada. But the Dominion Government
does not propose to proceed in the sordidly
selfish spirit in which the Posl-Inltlligtncer
tells its readers it will proceed in the event
of the Wilson tariff' being passed. Sir John
Thompson, the premier, in a publio speech
delivered a fow days ago said Canada would
reciprocate with the United States in the
reduction of duty, and for every reduction
made      by       the       States       in       the
duties levied on Canadian produce
would make corresponding reduction on the
duties levied in the Dominion on American
produce of a like sort. This is surely to
meet the Americans half way, and in a
friendly spirit too. Therefore the leader of
the Government is virtually pledged to free
trade with the United States if the latter
choose. Are the Americans afraid? If
not let them proceed and cut down the
duties on the different sorts of goods of
every class where they exchange with Canada, and then see whether the Dominion
Government will be as good as their word.
If they fail in any particular then Congress
at the earliest opportunity oan lay practically prohibitory duties on all the descriptions of poods in which Canada fails to
reciprocate. This would surely be a manlier course to take than to go on howling as
the Post-Intelligencer does in the article
which we have quoted above.
The Winnipeg Free Press feels a little
encouraged because farmers now get 45c. a
bushel for No 1 hard in that city and 43c.
for No. 2. The Fret Press is evidently
thankful for small mercies. It ought to pay
to buy wheat for ben feed at that price.
The Liberal press is greatly delighted at
the victory won by the Liberal party in the
local elections in Prince Edward Island. It
is looked upou as a sign ihat they are going
to win a like victory in the next general
election for the Dominion Parliament. Perhaps it is. The Liberals are always going
to win for the Dominion, but when the
elections are over some way or other they
generally find themselves in a grievous
minority. Tbe people do not trust their
policy in Dominion affairs. It would be very
foolish to do so Had the peopled one so the
last time Canada would be now dangling in
the midst of commercial storm at the tail
end of the American kite, aud we would be
all looking to Washington, not to Ottawa,
for relief.
Some one says that the San Francisco
Chronicle, has written an open letter to
President Cleveland, asking him what good
the repeal. of the purchase clause of the
Sherman act has done? The writer must
indeed be in the primitive state of ignorance
in which the Chronicle and other Republican
papers of the United States pretend to be
when criticising Mr. Cleveland's policy, if
he. does uot know the good done by the repeal of the Sherman act. Its repeal has
stopped the heavy monthly drain on the
national finances for unnecessary purchases
of silver bullion, a drain which if uot stopped would have ended by bankrupting the
national treasury. This drain had already
cost the United States a sum of over
$41,000,000, aud was a prime cause of
the existing commercial stringency by disorganizing the public ficauccs. It would
soou have drained away every dollar in gold
that remained in the United States treasury,
and compelled the government to pay its
liabilities, not in gold, but in depreciated
silver. It very nearly landed the country
in all the evils incident to a depreciated
currency. Its repeal helped to save the
country from this culamity, and to restore
confidence. No matter what evil the Republican party press may choose to say of
his policy, Mr. Cleveland has in this and
other matters deserved well of the nation.

Nanaimo football men may be interested
in this criticism of the Westminster team
by   a   correspondent    of   the    Vancouver
World: "For the last two years, with
scarcely an exception, Westminster has put
a Rugby football team in the field which
has alwayfi been beaten. The reason is that
the   forwards   are a hardworking lot,   but
ihey do uot "heel out" enough; the halves,
as a rule, are too selfish and do not. give the
three-quarters a chance, consequently the
forwards are uot relieved, and they work,
and work, without obtaining the least encouragement for their energies. But, if the
halves do "feed" the three-quarters, they in
turn do not work in harmony, and the
match usually terminates in the team putting up a good defence game, but that is all.
The Nelson Tribune says: "A useless
work is now being done by the Government j
in Weat Kootenay, that is, making copies
of the mining records for use at Victoria.
Why should Victoria lawyers be furnished
with copies of our mineral records at public
expense? For that is what it amounts to,
as there are not a dozen residents in that
city interested in West Kootenay mines.
What should be done is to require all record
blanks and receipts to be made out in triplicate, one copy to bo retained by the cluini
owner, one by the mining recorder of the
division in which the claim is situate, and
one to be sent to the Government office of
the district, there to be kept on file. If
that were done, much time would often ne
saved in making searches of title and no
extra expense would be incurred by the
Government."

A twenty-four hour rainfall at New Westminster, ending at (i on Saturday morning,
was about the heaviest ever experienced
there. The streets were torn up very badly
and it will cost the city a big sum to repair
them. Streams flowing down Twelth street
stopped the trams. On Albert Crescent,
facing the river, many slides occurred. The
largest was a serious affair. Several hundred
tons of earth slipped off the face of the
hardpan aud rolled over Front street and
across the long trestle on the C. P. R. line.
The western end of the trestle was knocked
two feet out of position. The massive steel
rails bent like hoop iron, ar.r! stringers
nearly two feet square were broken. The
earth filled up the space beneath tho trestle
and piled up on the track and road. Trees
over a foot in diameter came down with the
slide. Traffic was interrupted both on the
street and railway, and although a large
gang of men worked hard at the slide from
early in the morning it was after 1 o'clook
before the trains could pass. Owing to this
mishap there was no connection with the
Whatcom morning train.* A Uttle further
down street a washout occurred which
wrecked an Indian's house. The water cut
the earth clean from under it and one end
collapsed.
The most serious street car accident which
has been reported in Victoria for months
occurred on Sa'urday evening on Store
Blreet, when No. 7, coming from Fort street,
and No. 9, from Esquimau, collided near
the rice mills. There were about fifteen
passengers ou each car, but no oue was
badly hurt, although several received sniull
cuts and bruises from broken glass. Tne
front platforms on the cars were broken
completely off and nearly all tho front win
dows shattered. The motorueer ou No. 7
car said he did uot notice the other car approaching till it was within a very short distance of him. There were several passengers standing ou the front, platform of
either car, and his alarm was the fiist
warning those who were standing beside
him reoeived. Ou seeing the danger he kt
once breaked his car and afterwards reversed the power. The rails being slippery,
the car was not checked when the collision
occurred, and he had, with the passengers,
barely time t�� jump to save himself from
being crushed. The motorueer ou the other
car had not time to check his runningspeed,
for the night being very dark, especially ao
on account, of the dense fog, he did not
notice the small hand lantern, the head
light on No. 7. j

Sirongtn of British Columbia Spruce,    i
On November 2nd last, a very interesting
test was made in  tho  testing laboratory of
McGill University by Prof, liovey and some
of the fourth year students, of a specimen *
of British Columbia Bpruoe.    The specimen I
was a large  beam  25 it. 5 in, long,  8?  in.
wide, and 17A in. deop, and was taken from '
a tree felled in   the Skeena  River district,
B.C., 60*0 or 700 miles north of Victoria, j
some time abont the end of December, IN92. ���
The beam was shipped from the Royal Cana '
dian    Packing Co.'a  mill  at   Claxton,  ou
the Skeena river, by  Messrs. Dalby k Claxton, who furnished it to the University, and
arrived in  Montreal  in  August,   1893,    It
was uow subjected to  a  transverse  teat in
the Wickated   machine on  supports 24 feet
apart on centres, tho  centre load  being applied by increments  of ,r>00 lbs.,  and  the
deflection  noted   for each  increase.     The
beam failed under a  maximum load  of ,"1K,-
250 lbs, and not, as is usual, by the rupture
of the fibres on  tho tension side, but by the
crippling of the side in compression.    The
skin  stress developed  was also unusually
high, being a little over b',000 lbs. per square
inch, while the coefficient of elasticity was
1,700,000.     The   strength   of the Bri:i��h

the electors, of which there were 179 in the
north ward, 1S7 in the south ward and 294
in the middle ward, a total of HBO.
The city clerk drew attention to the drain
on McLeary street near Comox road. Aid.
Nightingale was appointed to examine it.
Aid. Cocking asked that assistance be
rendered to a destitute family living opposite to his stable. He had been to the house
and there was practically nothing in it. The
man, whose name wos Jones, had, as also
had his wife, been sick for some time and
unable to work, but now had work for a
few days with a dairyman. Aid. McKinnell
moved that the matter be left in the mayor's
hands and attended to at once, if necessary.
Carried.
The council then adjourned till next
Tuesday night.

(secretary), D. McLennan, A. Gibbs, B.
Newcombe, H. MoMillan, J. Hoyle, Drum-
mond, Ftzgerald, and E. Forneaux. It
waa decided to get up a concert at as early
a date aa possible to add to the funds to
help on lacrosse. The rest of the business
gone through was unimportant, as another

when matters now under consideration will
be brought forward.
A Juvenile Operetta.
On December 30th a juvenile operetta ia
to be given in the Opera Houae, at which 25
performed, in pretty costumes, varying
from four yeara up to aeventeen years of age
will take part. Mra. T. L. Davis has the
management which fact in itself guarantees
that the performance will be a success. The
operetta will be composed of selections from
popular operaB, and promises to bo excep
tionally interesting. It is being looked for
ward to with interest by a great number of
people���the last performance under the
same maua^nment having been one of the
moat successful amateur performances ever
seen in Nanaimo. The operetta haB been
got up with a charitable object in view,
being in aid of Mrs. Seaton's kindergarten
school.
Few Funny Men.
How many really funny men have we on
the American atage to day ? Comedians we
have galore; but how many are there who
are really funny I There ia a great deal of
difference between a man who is mechanically funny and the actor who is naturally
funny. The man who is naturally humorous
cannot help himself. He will be funny at
any Btageof the game���at any time or place.
It is not easy to define this power, for
power it certainly is. But how few actors
we have who possess it! Frank Daniels,
whose "Little Puck" is now in its sixth
year, is peculiarly gifted in this direction.
He has old individuality and droll mannerisms in his stage work that are distinctly original. His humor is irresistible,
his smile is infectious, and his personality is
comedy itaelf. No other comedian is like
him���he iB like unto no other comedian.
He owes his great succors to this remarkable
originality. He haa a field all to himself.
None can imitate him, for he has nature's
copyright. He is always welcome, and on
his return here with his big comedy company he will be given a hearty leception by
all his friends and admirers. Will appear
on Wednesday evening at the Opera House,
after playing in Vancouver on Monday and
- Tuesday nights. Reserved seals on sale at

CLOTHING FOR CONSUMPTIVES.
How  the Use of   Flannel  as TJnderwea*
May Be Carried to Kxcess.
A writer in the European edition of the
New York Herald, who considers tbat the
use of flannel as underwear has been carried to excess, and that this habit has arisen
from our attributing far too many complaints to the action of cold, says that this
factor is only an indirect one making us
more specially apt to be affected by this or
tbat morbid germ.
This excess in the use of flannel enmes
from the fact that physicians and patients
attribute consumption to tho action of cold.
M. Lancereaux of Paris recently called attention to the fact that every patient,
whether actually consumptive or only
threatened with the disease, conies to the
hospitals covered with underwear of this
sort and mentioned one man in particular
whom he found with three such undershirts, one above tho Other. In any case
everybody should clearly understand that
consumption is never the result of catching
cold, and this is proved by the fact tbat it
does, or rather did, not exist in certain
cold countries, such as Iceland or tbe Faroe
islands, until the disease made its appearance with ths habitual use of alcohol.
Pulmonary phthisis has only two factors
���lack of pure air and the abuse of alcoholic drinks, to which can be added pathological conditions which, like diabetes, undermine the patient.
Phthisis spreads in direct rnttoto the use
of houses, to the increase in the number of
stories to our houses and to the desertion
of life in the fields for life in the city. The
disease is rare toward the equator, tor the
simple reason that there are no manufacturing towns in that latitude.
According to whether the complaint is
originated by the one or other of the two
causes mentioned above.it affects a (liffer-
ent portion of the breathing apparatus.
When a person becomes consumptive
through an Insufficient supply of pure air,
the tubercles form in the forward portion
of the left apex, but with alcoholic patients
they develop at the right apex, and these
localizations are so habitual that in Mr.
Laneereaux's opinion they are sufficient In
99 cases out of 100 to throw the physician
on the track of the true cause of the disease.
Rheumatism and Hot Bathing;.
Despite the humid climate of Japan,
rheumatism is very rare among the natives, which is probably due to the practice
of daily hot bathing. Writing in Science
Dr. Albert Asbmead says: "A prolonged
residence in the Japanese climate is productive of general physical relaxation, with
increased susceptibility to cold. After a
two years' residence in Japan, Europeans
feel tbe necessity of wearing more substantial winter clothing, as tbe climate
Beems to have become harsher since the beginning of their sojourn. Any foreigner
win* permanently resides there and wishes
to feel at ease must resort to the hot bath-
inj.' of the natives; being iu Japan, he must
do as Japanese do. Europeans on their
first arrival are very prone to rheumatism,
and even perfected acclimatization does
not do away with that propensity. The
hot bath habit is singularly favorable to
pi*rfe*'t acclimatization. It, as also the
customary and frequent hot tea, mitigates
the depressive influence of the summer
kakk*' months, the wet season of June.

With a quiet, grave "lam very glad to self���hope, delight, pecnrity in the affect-
��eeyou,"she admiited him to the parlor, tion of the man she loved.
and, commanding with an effort the unruly fluttering of her heart, seated herself opposite to him, and waited composedly for what he had to say. A more
complete reversal of their relations of
judge and accused could not have been
brought about. He found himself pouring forth excuses, regrets, protests, as if
he had littered all iiis evil thoughts, as
if In* had grossly calumniated her before
all the world.
She listened with a happy kindly
smile, not reminding him how little he
had really done to deserve this self-reproach. If he had thought evil of her,
circumstances were to blame for that.
Hi:* hasty departure from Muriel's house
was but a manly restraint of jealousy
and anger.
But Laura realised all his sin against
their love, and her conscience justified
her in exacting tho full penalty. She
accepted the amende honorable as her
due, and when he had fully castigated
himself she rose and gave him her hand
in token of forgiveness, saying softly:
"Ernest, as we love each other, so let
ns be always trustful, always true."
Then sho changed the conversation,
and presently left him to summon her
sister and Captain Dundas, that he
might, become acquainted with her only
relatives.
Willmore was conscious of a certain
dissatisfaction. He had looked for a response to his generous avowals. He had
expected a voluntary explanation of the
incidents that had gone so far to justify*
his mistrust. P..;* Laura Kingdon had
said nothing, and the bases of suspicion
were as sound as ever.
He was disappointed���vexed by her
lack of confidence, but he doubted her
no more. His instinct told him she was
guileless; his love bade him be patient
and trustful.
Laura quickly returned to him, bringing her sister and the sailor-husband,
and introduced Lord Willmore to them
as her betrothed.
Willmore winced at this, and before
the hearty, honest congratulations of his
assumed brother-in-law. No word of
marriage had been spoken between him
and Laura, and, reconciled as he was to
love and trust her. he yet held in reserve this crown of wedlock for the woman whose life kept back from him no
secret and no mysteries. Laura Kingdon was not such a woman, and. he
shrank from this taking her to wife in
the face of her relations with this spectre
of reserve between them.
But there seemed to be no alternative,
and, with an uncomfortable sense of
being enmeshed in a net, he submitted
with the best grace he could command,
and, as was usual with him in debatable
situations, he became eager for the support aud counsel of his friend Chester.
Chester was outside, buried in the waiting hansom.
Willmore begged leave to bring him
in and present him forthwith, and, per
gladly

"That's pretty," remarked Ben Dun-
das as Lam*    hushed the song.     "Aie't
hoard thai afore. Don'ttpaite understand
it.   Give us 'i'nll and I,' Laurie."
But Ltttira was list.! aing only to a
question which, on the impulse of thu
moment, Willmore murmured in ber
ear:
"Have you
would forget?"
"My life has not been altogether
happy," she answered,
"Bit ii has been blameless," said he.
"I would stake my soul on that."
"I would have you think me no wors**
than other weak women. 1'shall al way-
try to deserve your g io i opinion, which
I respect more than anything in t .*
world, except���my duty," was li"v di::i
dent reply. Laura was not oue of th -i
who over-estimate their virtue*.-*. Eei
thoughts were rather with her sister
than herself, as will be seen from her
words. Who shalldeclare herself bi\me
less? Did no responsibility rest with li r
for the diseir.ee to which her sisti r hit
confessed that vary morning*! i.a.l.",-
not all too readily allowed her guardian
ship to be thrust aside? and but for a
sister's neglect, might not Dorothy b.
blameless too?
In her reply, and in the thoughtful
pause that ensued, Willmore found can-*
for a vague uneasiness. His enthusiasm
cooled, and a silence fell between then:
Glancing up, he wei Chostor'Hgaze fix"'"-
upon tho pair. His misgivings v, ere re
fleeted upon tho face of, his fn: al.
"Time's up, Ernest," Chester remarked. "I. must carry you ol';' westward.

But i.'.ia ia.-. would not hear of ti vie ;���
rioua leave-taking. He had not notic*
that Dorothy had left them. He won
go in search of her, and off he wen.
downstairs.
Chester seized the opportunity of ex
perimejiting upon Laura, with only Will
i more for a witness.
"I will leave you the evening paper.
I Miss King Ion," said he; "there is a t.-'*
I rible affair in it that is of interest to m
j all. What do you think, Ernest? A
; murder on a platform of the t ndei

Some chord in Laura's memory wa ������
. touched, but for the moment she  could
I not say  why  that chill apprehensio
: struck her.   She said nothing, but slight-
; ly paled as she reg -.: led Chester.
"How due,*-;, r* i *i ni usuiroe?" asked
1 Willmore iudiii remly.
"Because," was tho reply, "we all met
! the poor tallow lasl night at MissO'( ton
' nor's.   The victim was Ralph Kestrel."
Then there rushed upon Laura's mi'
all that Dorothy had told her as bema
the story of a dream.
She glanced from Chester to Willmur

mission   being   gladly    accorded,    he
promptly produced tho golden-bearded j fell swooning upon the floor.
politician   from   beneath   an    evening
paper, which had been serving him first
as a soporific  and   subsequently as a
counterpane.
Chester came  in,   and brought  the
newspaper   with  him.   He  conversed J
affably with the Captain and hie pretty '
wife, and listened appreciatively to their ;
praises of sister Laura.
These s ued to be simple, genuine j
folk enough. They told him freely i
many things that explained the cireum- j
stances under which he had met Miss
Kingdon, but they either could or would
impart nothing as to Muriel O'Connor,
and he keenly surmised that Mrs. Dundas, at least, had some knowledge of
that lady which she did not care to
divulge. Lightly touching on his last
night's visit to "the house at the corner,"
he took occasion to refer to the persons
he had met there���to Dennis Donovan
and to Ralph Kestrel. Ha! there was a
weak point in the armour, or his observation erred. Mrs. Dundas, at the mention of Kestrel's name, had suddenly
left the apartment without apology or
apparent cause.
Captain Dundas professed that neither
of these persons was known to him, but
the wife, Laura Kingdon's confidante,
clearly did not want to be questioned
concerning one oftliem.
Chester was satisfied for tho moment,
and reserved his next attack for Laura
herself. As lie glanced at a paragraph
hi the evening paper, he felt that he had
a strong weapon in his hands.
The Captain suggested that Laura
should sing for the company, a proposal
which Lord Willmoro ardently backed.
"Tune up, my little nightingale!"
cried Dundas. "Ever heard hor sing
sir? There's more music in it than a
hauling chorus���ay, pretty nigh the
heartiness of the cry 'Land-ho!' from
the look-out when we're hearing home."
And Laura sang in a soft sweet voice
these words:
Wlilthnr an* our footstons wending?
Dark the read and weird tho hour,
Life to life ��o closelv bending; *���*
t     Thoughts that aiKti "I.'amour! l'ttmourf"
The verse was somewhat nemmsly
rendered. The concluding words were
slurred and expressionless.
"Ah, siren! thought Chester, "you
would breathe that very differently to
him alone!"
But she resumed with more oourag-e
���nd sincerity:
Pausing on thu frontier lonely,
"Twlxt to-morrow an-3 to-day.
Pledge wo to eaoh other only
Faith Umt shall endure alway.
She began to lose herself in the sentl
ment of tbe song, that approximated so
closely to her relations with  Willmore,
and he, bending ovor her in impassioned
delight, forgot everything but his love
for her.
CHAPTER XIX
THE SHADOW OP A CRIME.
The sensation which agitated Ernest
Willmore as he bent over the inanimate
form of Laura Kingdon cannot be de
scribed.   They were too complex,  too
contradictory.     The  soft  brown   ha,;*
broke from its confines as ho raised I: r,

What was this man to hor? For a mo

an expiaoatioii from her knowledge o

to pry into her mystery while she  .*���

speak to her again.
So they departed, and took with them
the newspaper which had brought U*
mischief.
When Laura revived to a crushing
sense of danger,  her  eyes   sought   ;.s
eagerly for that harbinger of trouble a
her sister's had done for the self conviul

THE NEW YEAR DAWNS
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. Misrepresenta' 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 comit g direct to us. We make a sp- cialty of Fine Goods, and
have imported material into N anaimo which it was heretofore impossible 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 P igured Dress Goods We ha e 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.

signals are being manufactured and have
already been supplied to a number of vessels.

left on November 18th. Her advices are
simihr to those already received regarding
affairs in Brazil. They tell about Mello's
bombardment nf both Rio and Nictheroy.
The latter place is now in possession :tf the
National Guards. Captai'i Sowes of the
Lusulle said In* did not think the damage to
the city of Rio by shelling would amount to
over 375,000 up to the time he left. There
has been a constant shower of Nordenfelt
shots dropping about the city, but from
such long range very little damage waa
done by them. Two men and two women
have been killed by shells. Mello's tacticB,
the captain says, are ridiouled, and tbe
marksmanship of both forts and ships ia deplorable. Very few of the shots from them
have done auy damage.
