Honolulu, Jan. 13.���[Speoial]���Minister
Thurston returns to Washington per SS.
Australia. He has been for two weeks in
close conference with his Government. Mr.
Thurston lust evening expressed himself as
having become much impressed since his arrival with the strength of evidence that,
during November, Minister Willis did actually possess authority to nse the naval
forces in resturiug tho queen. While lhe
publication of instructions sent to Willis by
the cutter Corn in seems to settle the fact
that after that time he had power to use
force, it is s ill more certain that he caused
it to be understood by all parties that he
would use force.
Joseph O Carter, the queen's trusted adviser and confident, afier the Corwin came,
gave to his nephew, Charles L. Carter,
private warning on the 16th of December,
to beware as the naval forces were on the
point of landing to restore the queen.
Charles had his rifles ready to meet them.
J. 0. Carter unquestionably believed
what he was saying. Muoh interest is
expressed about Willis' long letter of
November 16th, which the president withholds from Ci ngress for reasons of state
policy. It is generally believed to describe
the que.ui'a revelations of character iu ie-
fu.rug oiemency in terms so derogatory to
hor unit its disclosure would impair the cor
diality of subsequent relations with her.
A receut correspondence of Dole and
Willis was given in substance io a United
Press despatch of January 1st. That correspondence was continued by Willis demanding the meaning of the term "menacing attitude" or some! lung equivalent, which
Dole applied to his conduct. An answer
was made by Dole, but its nature has no
yet been learned. The government has renewed serious consideration of the
often discussed question of formally
organising the government, under a
permanent constitutional form. It is quite
possible that preliminary forms may be
adopted at an early date. The Star yesterday advocated the establishment of an
upper house, representing property interests
and possessing speoial powers, with a lower
house io be chosen with wider suffrage, all
voters to read and write English. This
would exclude most of the Asiatics. In th
Honolulu Bulletin of the 5th, Davis scores
Dole   for   "not   touching   upon   the   vital
goint," made by President Cleveland, who
nils that "Ihe provisional government was
not establiahed by the Hawaii >n people,
nor with their cousent or acquiescence, nor
has it since existed with their consent."
Davis concludes, "that power (the United
states), will never consent to regard the
dieiatos cf honor and the law of nations, as
a lower earthly authority than the will of
unnamed men to whom alone the provisional government appeal,"
The Honolulu drug stores have a large
stock of bandages on hand, which they prepared in expectation of the light which Mr.
Willis did not bring off.
The United Press correspondent at Honolulu, writing under date of January 5th,
says: 'Since our last news sent per ss.
Warrimoo, on the first, all has been quiet.
The government has removed all the sand
bags from the veranda house of the executive building,, whence sharpshooters were to
pick off the attacking naval forces. Shonld
Congress order the queen restored by foroe
no resistance would be attempted. The
sand bag defences on the ground are left
against a possible royalist insurrection.
The government has small fear of
any such attempt, but remains on the
alert. T. H. Davis, Kaiulanis' guardian,
writes to the Bulletin of the 3rd with great
solemnity of "the decision of the United
States government, delivered through the
lips of a Christian gentleman who declared
that he spoke with a deep and solemn sense
of the gravity of the situation aud in the
name and by the au' hority of the United
States of America. The president's statement oarries with it the stern condemnation
of the meu and women who have suffered
themselves to  be led, by  whatever   argu-
urres., by SecreiHrv of Sta'c GiVHham in his
iei-t-1- *.. President C eve'ami, h id by Commissioner Blount in the report uf his investigations, and upon the further fact that in

mining and lumbering, and other classes
of persons not easily controlled, the
seourity for life and property in that province seems to be greater than in older and
more thickly settled portions of the Domin-
. . ,ion.    It is seldom that a   murder   goes un-
the provisional government to surrender in | avenged in the country which   Rev. Princi-

and    direction   of
ments. into an effort to subvert a nation.
On the annexation side there seem to prevail u profane disposition to see a faroical
element in Willis' demand. Mr. Davies
yesterday declared his entire confidence
that Congress will he subservient to the
president's will and will restore the queen
by force. Mr. Davie's personal knowledge
of Mr. Cleveland's views entitles bis
opinions to great weigh', ss experience here
h*s fully proved.
San Francisco, Jan. 13 ���The last edition
of cm:-! of the evening papers contains the
following under the dale of Honolulu, January 6th: "Ex Queen Liliuokalani has entirely abandoned all hope of ever regaining the
throne of Hawaii, and is now perfecting arrangements for bringing suit against the
United States for an immense sum oi money.
Such is the startling news learned here today shortly before the sailing of the steamer
Australia."
This information comes from a source
whioh makes it absolutely trustworthy and
it is believed that before the next steamer
sails from here for San Francisco the news
will become more or less public property on
the islands.    The agents   of   the   ex-queen

The Latest From Brazil.
London, Jan. 13���The ss. Clyde,from Per-
namhuco,arrived at Southampton to-day, with
an officer and 39 sailors, who sailed from New
York on President Peixoto's cruiser, Nictheroy, and left h**r at Pernambuco. One of
the iiitu said that the Government ageuts at
Peruambuco offered them $100 a month
each, and $500 "ounty, if ttiey would do
service on the Nictheroy, but they refused,
aB they considered the vessel unfit for fighting. She had been loaded with gunpowder,
dynamite and cotton wool, yet the natives
had persisted in smoking aboard her. Several
of the men had been placed in irons, but
eventually 65 had succeeded in getting
ashore. The Brazilian officers who had
boarded the Nictheroy were ignorant of
navigation.
New York, Jan. 13.���The steamer Cat
ania has arrived from Brazil. She left Santos Dec. Oth, all qniet. During the sixteen
days of the steamer's stay nothing of
moment oocurred. At Rio where the
Catania wai eight days, there were daily
conflicts between the ships and shore. The
oaptain says while returuiug tu tho ship
from shore bullets whistled between the
stroke oarsman and himself. A conflict between launches and shore usually began iu
the evening and there was almost an incessant rattle of machine guns.
Captain Lang, the commander of the
British gunboat Sirius, was reported to be
seriously ill and purposed returning to England. This would leave Captain Picking,
of the Charlestown, acting senior officer of
the foreign fleet before Rio, because tho
captain of the French cruiser, Magnon,
who was actually entitled to the distinction,
did not want to act in that capacity.
The Herald's oorrespondent in Rio also
reports that on January 4t.h ail the ministers of foreign powers having warships in
the bay informed President Peixoto and
General Saldanha that they would suspend
all efforts at intervention between the con
testants and that both sides might go ahead
and bombard each other to their hearts'
content. But the foreign warships did not
move from their anchorages, and the rebel
vessels still remained eosconsed behind
them, safe from President Peixoto's gunners.
New York, Jan 13.���The report tlut the
insurgents had taken Curityba in the Province of San Paulo, has been disproved.
Rear Admiral Benham, of the United
States cruiser San Francisco, who saw the
Nictheroy while his vessel was coaling at
Pernambuco, praises the operation of her
dynamite guns. Rio Janeiro has remained
to-day.
Cape Colony Affairs.
London, Jan. 12.���It is believed negotiations have been proceeding between the
United States Government and some London
banks respecting support by a syndicate of
banks when Secretary Carlisle issues the
uew bonds. These bonds, it is expected
here, will amount to 850,000,000.
Sir. J. G. Sprigg, a Cabinet Minister in
the Cape Colony, said in a speech in East
London this evening, that the government
of Cape Colony ought to be vested in the
hands of the peepte, to whom the ministers
should be answerable. The colony ought
not to be governed virtually by ministers
6,000 miles distant, and ignorant of the
country's needs. The minister referred to
Puruound when; serious fighting is iu pro-
ress, between Chief Patekele, and Chief
iglau, and is reported to have resulted disastrously to the latter. He said that the
Cape governmeut mum- interfere in the campaign with a view to reprove the condition
of the natives aud stopping the cruelty of
the raiders.
made a good country for rascals to emigrate
from. Crimes committed among the Chinese,
which are said to be so difficult of detection
iu San Francisco, have beeu brought home to
the guilty parties by Attorney-General Davie
and his assistants in Victoria, though at times
such tasks required  great   skill,   labor and
courage.    Some of the   most intricate and
sensational of Canadian criminal trials have
. been held in British Columbia.   Last week
I Albert Stroebel   was convicted at Victoria
of  murdering  John   Marshall.   The   trial
lasted twelve days, and the Crown adopted
the   unusual   course   of   paying  witnesses
called for the defence.    The case  had to be
tried twice.    On  the first occasion, in November, the   trial     took   place at   New
Westminster,     the      chef     lieu    of   the
district     in     which     the     crime     was
committed,     but     the     jury    failed   to
agree.   Then the Attorney-General applied
for and obtained a change of venue, and had
the prisoner tried at Victoria with   the result before stated.     The murder took place
at Huntingdon,.within a mile of the   international boundary line at Sumas.    Marshall
was  a    farmer,    who    lived    alone    and
was   known   to   have   some  money in his
house,   Stroebel   boarded   at   Somas,    on
the     Americin    side   nf   the    line     and
seems      to      nave    'had     no     particular
occupation.   Marshall waa   found lying in
his own doorway murdered, his death being
caused by revolver shots, the bullets having
penetrated   his head and   neck.    Marshall
was an industrious, cheerful and  hospitable
man.    To some boys who had visited hia
bouse shortly   before the   murder   he   had
shown a lot of ��20 gold   pieces.    The   boys
repealed the story to Stroebel, who was impecunious.   Stroebel was in tne vicinity  of
Marshall's place the evening of the murder,
and   the  bullets  found in the dead   man's
head fitted the revolver  found on Stroebel
when he was arrested.    The evidence waa
pirely   circumstantial,   and    the   prisoner
went into the box to  testify to his own defence.    But, as was tbe case with  Luckey,
he gave such an improbable and contradictory account of his movements on the night
when the   murder was   committed  that he
proved a valuable   witness for the crown,
and was convicted.    He has since confessed
that    he   killed   Marshall,     but   pleads
that   he   did so   in   self-defence���an   entirely   absurd    pretence���and    one    that
brands   the   statements   made    by   Stroebel    in    the    witness    box  as a  string of
perjuries.   At   the   couclusion   of  the   12
days'   trial.   Judge     Walkem    sentenced
Stroebel to death, stiting, however, that he
would give ample time for   a   review uf the
case by the Dominion executive.   The trial
of Stroebel was   watched   with   interest in
British Columbia aud the neighboring states
of the American Union, and   Attorney General Davie is being warmly praised  for   the
success which has attended  his   methods of
enforcing law and order under what  are regarded in other provinces  as   difficult conditions.
Hard Luck.
A Vancouver minister had a most trying
experience recently. He wished to reach
Victoria to preach ou Sunday, and iu the
first plaoe went to the ss. Premier, but being
told she would not. start for some time,
went away for a little while, and ou his return found she h��d gone. He then went to
the Cutch, bul missed it, owing to a tiain
beiiigin the way whilst walking .lie track. He fation and for the
then tackled the City of Nanaimo, aud after
having persuaded the captain for a consideration to oall at the other wharf for his
baggage, found wheu he got there that it
had already left by the Premier. Ou arrival
in Nanaimo.lie left for Victoria per the train,
but even here his luck was against him, us
will be seen by another item dealing with
the mischief wrought by the storm to the
local railway service.

Tableturning was to have been one of the
features of the evening, but unfortunately
aome of the invited guests were unable to
come, so that the interesting eveut did not
materialize. Nevertheless the evening was,
as Dr. Curry's soirees usually are, a most

Battleships of the Future.
The battleship of the future will, like aU
human contrivances, be of gradual growth,
resulting from the adaptation to her use of
improvements and discoveries in many
branches of science. Under the crucial test
of war it may be found that many mistakes
have been made. If I should venture to
point out any of these, it would be the multiplicity of devices which every branch of
physical science has ooutributed to overcrowd our ships. Not that they do not
admirably serve their purpose, but 1 fear
that we, as sailors, are growing to rely upon
them, and will bo Inst when the rude shook
of batt le breaks our electric wire ��� and disarranges the delicate machinery u on whioh
we now depend in a thousand or more ways.
In the main, however, 1 venture to think
that the battle ship of to-day has a sound
reason for all her principal features, and the
type will persist. The stability will continue to be carefully protected by vertical
aim-.>. Many of the accidents, both in
battle and in times of peace, to which great
ships are liable, will be diminished by the
adoption of liquid fuel. The main batteries
will be mounted in turrets furnishing complete protection to the guns, and, as far as
possible, to the machinery for their manipu-
upply of ammunition.
The secondary battery will be protected in
proportion to its importance, while every
guu position, with its crew, will be protected against machine ami rapid gun fire The
time will never come when we shall cense to
demaud h gher requirements in the battle
ship Fortunately, all requirements are interchangeable.
Armor may be substituted for guns, or
fuel, so that the saving in one direction may
at once be utilized in another. The advent
of hard surfaced armor will demand that
the calibre of the main battery be maintained; for until projectiles of greater
strength can be produced the only way to
overcome Harvey armor is to crush it with
au overwhelming blow. In addition to thia,
it will undoubtedly be found that all armor
under the constantly varying angles of impact in battle will furnish greater protection than is considered possible when judged
by the result of normal impact on the proving ground. For this reason, again, the
larger calibre of the gun must be maintained, and thin, in its turn, determines the
great size of the battleship of tbe future,
subject to the restrictions whioh have been
indicated.���W. T. Simpson, Captain,United
States Navy, in the American Review. NANAIMO, B. C., SUNDAY, JANUARY 14, 1894.

The Str_\3burg  Clock.
For the third   ii ne  the  maninipali'y of
Strasburg, Germany, dt-drinl in 1836 that a
new astronomical clock shoul 1 be   p* cod in
the framewoik ���>' the "la one.    A Strajliurg
watchmaker by the name of   Schwilgue was
animated with the undertaking, and within
four years he finished the mechanism which
stands to-day to the wonder and amusement
of natives and visitors.    Not only does  this
clock keep the time from day to day, but it
runs from year to year   without   the  intervention of any olockmaker.   Besides this its
fac-i contains a disc indicating   all  the variable holidays of the year,   Eai'er ard so nn.
It regulates itself in the leap years.   It gives
the phases of the moon, the eclipses, the equinoxes, and therevolutioosof all the planets of
theaolarsystem. The fineness of the snuut nre
can be understood  when it is known that cf
the seven golden balls of different sizes representing   the   planets, the  no .rest lo  the
sun, Mercury, takes 28 daya   to   make   the
circuit of its orbit,  while Saturn only can
complete'its course in 1747 days, or nearly
three years.    The   entire   mechanism,   its
maker calculated, would run until the vest
9999, if the brass and other metal of which
it is built do not wear out in the meantime.
This wonderful contrivance is unf. rtunatt ly
in a dark plaoe, where those who oonatantly
wish to view it well are scarcely  able to do
so.    Its site is a wing which oan be entered
either through   the   cathedral  proper or a
portal, which   directly   leads   thither from
out doors.
The time of greatest interest is at noon
each day, though there are little peif rm-
ancea at eaoh quarter hour. At noon is the
time the cock crows, and that is what
everybody wants to hear. The interest
never seems to wane. For an hour before
12 o'clock day after day, a crowd gathers in
this corner waiting for the exhibition. This
early arrival is partly in order to get a good
place and partly because tbe clock keeps
solar time, which is now half an hour behind
ordinary Strasburg time. Here are tourists,
Boldiers, nuns, biidal couples, peasant
women with baskets, boys with bundles,
who have run in from the street to have
another look at the thing. Now it is only a
half hour until the performance; will the
room hold any more?
Th* beadles, like the street oar conductors, are sure there is plenty of room "up
front," or rather, in this case, behind. They
wave the wands of their majesty and back
the people surge. Still more are coming.
The natives, who never seem to tire of the
sight and who know better about the variance in the times, are now dropping in ���
mothers and babies, business men from
around the corner, and everybody else.
There is no space to sneeze. Now there are
only five minutes until the roostei cruws.
Maybe he will not crow to-day. Everybody is looking at the clook. In the very
centre of the big monument to the clock-
maker's ingenuity is a gallery,
Here stauds Father Time repres* nting
Death. He has about him on a revolving
plane four figures���Childhood, a boy; You h,
a young hunter; Manhood, a fully armed
knight; Old Age, a gray-haired man clothed
in the skin of a beast. Childhood had
struck ihe first quarter of an hour, Youth
the second, Manhood the third, and Old
Age the other hours of the day; but now at
noon it is Death's own chance. The f> ur
figures come out to view before him, while
with a grim hammer of bone, he sounds
with twelve strokes tbe death of another
day.
A little figure down near ths face of the
clock now haa hia turn, and with a little
shake, reverses his hour glass. Above all
this ia another gallery. It begins to rquealt.
The machinery is in motion. In the middle
is a figure of Christ, and around him are td
pass the twelve apostles. Out they come
one by one. Each stops an instant before
the Saviour, turns face, bows, and receives
the blessing from his outstretched hand.
But the rooster, where is he? There he
still is high up on the pedestal, beside a
stained glass window. Now he clucks.
Now his old metal-plated throat swells. He
flips his wings and orows. Another rnii u'****.
Again he flaps his wings and crowa. Aml.a
third time. Was there ever such a luoster
as this ? He is all over. The beadles drive
the people out, shut up the cathedral and
go to dinner.
The lime of the greatest interest comes
but once a year, in the night from the Slit
of December to New Year's day.. Then an
immense crowd always assembles to watch
the revolutions of the machinery as it regulates itself ready for the coming year.���

SUNDAY, JANUARY 14, 1894.
REFORM OF THE TARIFF.
There its much talk at present of reform
of the tariff, and much discontent is expressed at the heavy taxation which. it is
popularly believed to impose. Taxation is
always considered an evil, aud people
naturally become impatient of it. In the
present instance there will doubtless be a
very substantial reduction made iu the
tariff, probably this session. Some farmers at
Moosomin in the Northwest were lately
looking into the matter, and their demand
was that the tariff be cut down so that the
duty shall not exceed 12J per cent, on all
prime necessaries for the household and the
farm. These Moosomin farmers forget the
lesson taught by the condition of things all
over Canada before the policy of moderate
protection waa adopted iu 1879 The
average duty paid on dutiable goods entered
for consumption in Canada during the fiscal
year ending the 30 h of June 1892 was only
17.56 per cent. Tbe trade and navigation
returns prove this. The total imports for
the fiscal year mentioned aggregated S116,-
978,943 and he duties collected amounted
to $20,550,581. From these figures any
arithmetician can deduct for himself the
rate of duty imposed. Now the Government imposes a comparatively high tariff
rate of duty on luxuries, and admits the
necessaries of life free or nearly so. If a
man wants to drink wine, spirits, and ale
himself, and to buy silks, embroideries,
carriages, jewellery and musical instruments
for his wife and daughters he must pay a
heavy duty on them under the existing tariff,
so also he has to pay smartly for velvets,
costly broadcloths, moleskins and the like
high priced linens and cottons, such asjlaces,
lawns, curtains, etc., also for perfumes and
costly toilet articles,pirocelain and expensive
table ware, and articles of a like sort which
only wealthy people can afford
to purchase ; on dutiable articlee
which the poor use the rate of
impost is only about 14 per cent. The
Government propose to revise the tariff next
session, and doubtless there will be further
reductions. In the meantime they have
been making careful enquiry into the whole
subject. No one can deny that this is the
proper way in which to proceed in regard to
the matter. As to the general question of
free trade versus protection, we have no
hesitation in Baying that a policy of moderate protection ought to be maintained in
Canada. Previous to the introduction of
the national policy we had a 17J per cent,
tariff in operation, and the revenue it
yielded waB not sufficient for the wants of
the Government. Every year there was a
big deficit, in.spite of all the Government
could do, and Canada's credit was declining.
Free trade or a 12J per cent, tariff would
mean the ruin of the revenue and direct taxation. It would mean more than this; it
would mean the run of our manufactures,
the closing of our factories, and the throwing of thousands of workmen idle upon the
atreets. Canada haB now a great Bum invested in manufactures, and this we cannot
-afford to sacrifice, aa sacrificed it would
surely be if free trade or a \2\ per cent,
tariff were adopted. About the lowest tariff that we can afford to have iB one that
will average about 25 per cent, on all classes
of dutiable goods. It is probable that when
the propo ed revision of the tariff is made
the average rate on dutiable goods imported
for consumption will not exceed this figure.
Zorilla, the Republican leader in Spain,
has issued a manifesto, in which he predicts
the early triumph of the Republicans in the
peninsula. M. Zorilla Bays that the establishment of a republic in Spain would be
followed by a revival of trade, by an improvement in the condition of the working
classes, by the regulation of the finances, by
the establishment of an efficient army and
navy, and by the protection of the interests
of the church. Senor Zorilla may be an
honest Republican, but he must be a very
sanguine man, as well aB very shortsighted,
to expect that any good to Spain can come
of a republic. The Spaniards in various
parts of the world have tried republicanism,
and always with unsatisfactory results. The
race does not seem fitted for that mode of
government. Civil war has prevailed in
nearly every Spanish state in South America
during the past year, and is still proceeding
in some of them. It was muoh the same in
Spain on those occasions when the Spanish
Republicans managed to get the upper
hand.    Pronunciamentos by prominent mi/i-
tary men, followed in due course by civil
war, were the order of the day. A monarchical form of government, especially if
the king is a strong man, seems better
adapted to the temper and habits of the
Spaniards, and under such a form of government they always enjoy more material
prosperity than under a republic. Monarchy
in Spain has generally been bad enough, and
corruption and abuses have abounded, but
civil war is worse than either. The
Anglo-Saxon race is the only race
in the world, with the somewhat
doubtful exception of the Swiss, which appears to possess self-control enough to administer republican institutions successfully.
It is satisfactory to note that Mr. Zorilla,
in his appeal to all other interests, manfully
repudiates the murderous anarchists, as enemies of social order. The anarchists seem
to be like Ishmael and his descendants, their
hand is against everv man, and aB a consequence, the hand of every man is against
them.
A San Francisco despatch states that
owing to the difficulty experienced by the
British and American Governments in coming to a satisfactory agreement regarding
the policing of Behring Sea, that sea will
probably remain open after May 1st. Indeed it seems useless for the British Government to be at expense in helping the Americans to patrol Behring Sea, for the benefit
chiefly of the company that has leased the
Pribyloff Islands. As the Paris award practically gave all the profit to be derived from
the seal herds to the Americans, the latter
ought not to grudge the expense of protecting them.
The Popk has addressed a letter to a
French bishop in which he exhorts the Roman Catholics of that country to remain
faithful to the republic. The cause of the
Bourbons in France seems to be at a very
low ebb at present, when even the church
refuses to lend them any succor. However,
the Pope's exhortation will not really make
much difference. Female suffrage has not
yet been established in France, and as the
ladies are the only true servants of the
church there, the men will go on voting
pretty much as they pleaBe, without troubling themselves much regarding the Pope's
advice. It was really the disasters whioh
Napoleon III. brought on France in his war
with Germany which killed monarchy in the
former country. The Pope's exhortation to
the members of his church to remain faith
ful to the republic have had very little to do
with it. The letter of His Holiness is, however, worthy of note as a sign of the times
in which we live. Everywhere democracy
seems advancing, and the opposite system
declining.     	
Tiik House of Commons has adjourned
till February 12, after paesing the third
reading of the Parish Councils' bill. Mr.
Goschen, Chancellor of tbe Exchequer in
the Salisbury cabinet, intimated that it was
the jaded state of the House only which
caused the opposition to refrain from debating the third reading, and he predicted
that the bill would be closely scrutinized by
the Lords before allowing it to become law,
It is not likely, however, that the bill will
be thrown out by the Lords, as the Conservative party in the Commons made a
compromise with the Government regarding
it, the terms of which will no doubt be respected by the Lords. Moreover to reject
the bill or to alter it much by amendments
would be a very improper proceeding, which
tlie Lords will hardly venture on at present,
It is claimed for this bill that it will revolutionize the rural government of Great Britain and place it entirely in the hands of the
democracy, as represented by the farm laborers. It is expected by some that they
will use their power to oppress ani plunder
the landlords and to tax the middle class
unfairly. The bill is another long step towards placing the government of Great Britain in the hands of the masses. It remains
to be seen what use they will make of it.

Thk News-Advertiser of Vancouver seems
considerably disappointed at the result of
the municipal elections in that oity. Its
candidate for the office of mayor, Alderman
Collins, has been defeated, and Alderman
Anderson elected by a good majority. Here is how the News-Advertiser oi Thursday accounts for the
defeat of its favorite candidate: "Although
Alderman Collius failed to be elected yesterday as mayor of Vancouver he made a
good run, Alderman Anderson drfeating
him by 81 votes. There is no doubt that
Alderman Towler was right when he said on
Wednesday that Alderman Auderson's supporters were pleased to see him in tbe field,
as he was likely to draw away some
votes from Alderman Collins. An examination of the vote cast leaves little
room to doubt that this was the case
and that had Alderman Towler not been
in the field, Alderman Collins would have
been elected by a good majority. However,
the matter is decided now aad it is useless
to spend time or words in discussing what
might have been the result under other circumstances than those whioh prevailed. It
is a matter for regret that the oity will not
cotinue to have the benefit of Mr. Collins'
services. He has been a painstaking and
assiduous member of the council and it is to
be hoped t hat at some future time he will
again  be found  interested in civic affairs"
Alderman Towler haB evidently muoh to
answer for. It is, however, whispered that
one main cause of Alderman Collins' defeat
was the disastrous patronage of the News-
Advertiser. It is a remarkable fact that for
several years past the candidate for the
position of mayor of Vancouver who has had
the misfortune to be championed by the
News-Advertiser has invariably been defeated. If Alderman Collins should decide
to run for the office at some future time, he
will do well to request his friend, the' managing editor, to oppose him stoutly fn favor
of some other candidate. He would then
have a good chance of succeas.

PROVINCIAL   NEWS.
Instructions have been reoeived by Lieutenant Port, of No. 4 company, Britiah Columbia Brigade Garrison Artillery at New
Westminster, to turn all the old accoutrements into stores at Viotoria and make requisition for a new outfit in everthing ex-
oept uniforms. Lieutenant Port at onee
obeyed these instructions, which came from
Lieutenant-Colonel Prior.
The commutation of the sentences of
Peter and Jack, the Indian murderers, ia
generally condemned in Westminster, and
many people have expressed their indignation in no measured terms. Men of experience who know the  Indians  well,  and
officers of the law, declare that this intervention in behalf of the murderers is a most
serious mistake, which time will undoubtedly prove.
A change has been made io one of the
most prominent legal firms in Vancouver
oity and Westminster, that of Messrs. Cor-
bould, McColl, Wilson k Campbell. From
this t me the business of the firm will bo
divided. The Westminster business will be
carried on by Mr. Corbould, M P., and
Messrs. A. J. and J. XV. McColl, under the
style of Messrs. Corbould and McColl, while
the business in Vancouver will b*< conducted
by Mr. C. Wilson and Mr. John Campbell,
with Mr. Buell, who has been for some time
in the office, under the firm name of Wilson,
Campbell and Buell.
The steam' r Signal, a Portland telegram
says, which came over from British Columbia a week ago with 40 Chinese, has sailed,
taking back ten of them, some of whom
have still a chance to get in. The collector
at Astoria landed fouVteen, of the remaining twenty habeas corpus was granted to
fifteen, and ten of these were landed by the
court. The case of one who claimed to be a
restaurant keeper is still under consideration. The law makes no provision for that
business. The judge waa at first inclined
to land him but finally took the matter under advisement, as it was a matter of importance and he did nut want a wrong precedent establiahed. More Chineae are coming.
The following letter in reference to the
commutation of the death sentence on the
Indians, Peter and Jack, the murderers of
Albert Pittendrigh at New Westminster,
appears in the Columbian of Thursday:
"Editor Columbian ��� Sir: Yesterday the
Sheriff was notified, from Ottawa, by the
Department of Justice that the Indians
Peter and Jack, the murdeiers of the late
A. B. Pittendrigh, were to have their death
sentence commuted to life imprisonment. It
would be extremely interesting to know just
how they came to such a decision. Surely, it
was not from the evidence on whioh the jury
found the Indians guilty Either Peter
and Jack ought to be hanged or else set free,
they are either guilty or not guilty of murder. The question of manslaughter is not
admisaable; and why the Department of
Justice (?) should take upon itself the farce
of commuting their sentence to life imprisonment ia hard to comprehend. If capital
punishment is the low of the land, let us
nave it impartially administered. The administration of criminal justice at Ottawa,
as far as it relates to punishing Indiana in
this Province, will aoon be a by-word, and
cannot help but tend to increase crime, and
especially murder.���"An Eye for an Eye."

A Successful Entertainment.
The entertainment provided at the Y. M.
C. A. last night was given to a crowded
house, the programme being exceptionally
good. Though everything waa well rendered, the perfprmancea of Mrs. Leighton,
Misses Burns, Pollock and Hague and
Messrs. Tudhope and Rev. Maitland were
especially appreciated. Mr. McKinnon
was chairman and the whole proceedings
were greatly enjoyed.
Had a "Jag" on.
Considerable excitement was caused last
night by the finding of it man lying outside
the Bank of British Columbia in a pool of
blood with one of his pockets 'irned inside
out. On investiga'ion it turned out. that
the man was drunk and had fallen on his
face, being stunned, and cut about the Lead,
He had not been rolled, having turned his
pocket out himself, as he had all his belongings, including watch and chain, on him.
The fall he experienced resulted in sobering
him up and he managed to get home safely,
being escorted by two gentlemen who found
him.
Servant* in Singapore.
I have heard marvellous stories of the
number of servants required in the east and
had to take a humble plaoe in my home that
was to be. 1 wondered how I would act in
the presence of two "boys," a oook, a water
carrier, a coachman, a table boy, a gardener,
a washman, a lamp man, a tailor and a maid.
Later I wondered how we ever kept house
with only a cook and a maid servant; and
while stretched out in an ample easy chair
on the veranda of my palm thatched bungalow, in absolute repose of mind and body, j
soothed with a cup ot tea which Ah Minga
had administered to me, comforted with
grass slippers that he had placed on my '
feet, I calmly pitied the friends I had left!
behind in America.
In every well ordered   Indian bungalow,
seven to nine servants are an absolute ne-'
enssity while three others are usually added
from time   to   time,'declares   the writer in
Kate   Field's    Washington.    The   five   elements, if I may so style them, are the "boy" j
or boys, the cook and his helpers, the horse- *
man, the water   carrier, the   gardener and '
the maid.   The adjuncts are the barber, the
washman, the tailor and the watchman.    Iu
a mild way you   are   at the mercy of these
servants.    Their duties are fixed hy caste,
one never entrenching on tho  work of another.   You must have all or noue.    Still
that is no hardship.    Only  newcomers ever
think  of trying   to   economize  on servant
bills.    The record   of   the   thermometer is
too appalling and you  speedily beoome the
dependent nt their attentions.
The Chinese i "boy"���he ia always the
"boy" until he dies���is tho presiding genius
of the house. He it is who brings your tea
and fruit to the beds de at 6 a. m., and lays
out your evening suit ready for dinner, puts
your studs in your clean shirt, brings your I
slippers, mixes your whiskey and soda,
knows where each article of your wardrobe
is kept, and, in faot, thinks of a hundred
and one little comforts you would never
have known of had he not discovered them.
He is your valet de chambre, your butler,
your steward and your general agent, your
interpreter and your direotory. He controls
the other servants wiih a rod of iron, but
bows to the earth before the Mem or the
master. For his ten Mexioan dollars a
month he takes all the burdens from your
shoulders and stands between you and the
rude outside polyglot world. He is a hero
worshipper, and if you are a Tuan Besar���
great man���he will double his attentions
and spread your fame far and wide among
his brother major domos.

ON  THE  RAILWAY.
Traffic Ditsorgsusiied���Uncomfortable Experiences of Passengers-The Track
Damaged.
l'he htavy rains of Friday occasioned cod-
tideruble dann.ee along the line of the Es
quimalt and Nanaimo railway. A . ban
���waehout look place near Koksilah. TV.-
were w,.shed away, and a large tree fel
across a trestle bridge lengthwise, smashing
several of the stringers and shaking thi*
itructure badly. Many inquiries were made
yesterday at the depot as to the whereabout
of the train from Victoria but no definite
information could be obtained, the wires
being down near Chemainus.
The trips of the two trainsyesterday were
ret eventful, passengers on both having
feriences *hat fortunately but seldom
App**n. The south bound train, afier leav-
Ig Nanaimo yesterday morning, encountered
Ayiolent ttoim which lasted about an hour
and sent timber down in all directions,
which train hands and passeDgers all turned
out to clear off when on the track. On
reaching Oyster Bay orossing, the embank
menis by trestles Nob. 103 and 107 were
found to have been partially washed away,
but precautions having been taken by the
bridgemen, after some fallen timber had
been   cleared   away,. the   train proceeded
The greatest difficulty was experienced at
Koksilah, by the up train, which encountered
fallen timber to some extent, here found
that the Koksilah river, which runs along
the s.de of the truck for a oonsiderabte distance, had over-flowed its banks, there having been at one time as much as two feet of
water on the track, though it sank again.
On coming towards Nanaimo, it was found
that the trestle at Chemainus river was
broken. Under the superintendence of
Superintendent Hunter and bridge manager
Smith the train men and passengers together
rigged up a temporary bridge and eventually arrived at Nanaimo at about 6 o'clock
last night.
Both engineers on the two trains used the
utmost caution, as was indeed necessary.
The brakeman of a freight train had a narrow escape. He was riding a velocipede to
flag the advancing up passenger, and in a
outtiug suddenly met it, and only just had
time to dismount. As it was, the engine
struck the velocipede as he lifted it off the
track though it was not damaged.

A Happy Gathering.
A most enjoyable dime whist party took
place at the residence of Mr. J. H. Simpson,

was the order of the evening untill about
midnight, when dancing took its place. The
first prizes for lady and gentleman were won
by Miss King and F. Charlton respectively,
whilst the booby prizes fell to the lot of
Miss A. Glaholm and Mr. Field. The evening throughout was greatly enjoyed and
after the supper, which was a most sumptuous repast, dancing was kept up until 3
o'clock on Friday morning.

Two Dogs and a Cow.
The following from "Rod Random," Winnipeg, appears in the September number of
Sports A field:
"A remarkable cage of bovine aud canine
affeolton lis existed in Wi uipcg for aome
time. A litter of Irish st-fer puppies was
reistiil ia a b*rn in t hv n*-xt stall to that
occupied by a cow. When the pups were
big euuugh two of > hi ui, much to the alarm
of Mr. A., the owue , persisted in paying
friquent visiia i.i il.eii big neighbor. Thi-
oow, however, was by no means inclined to
be hostile, and before long Mr. A. discovered that she received the visits of their pup-
ships with pleasure. She always took good
oare not to step on or lie r'own upon them,
and when about to make a move would look
very carefully around the stall When ly
ing down the pups would play hide and
seek aftnind her, and she joined in the fun
bv poking them with her nose. Mr. A. became very much interested in the case and
when he let. the oow out to pasture in the
sprint? he also turned the whole litter loose
to run about the premises. The "twa dogs"
���ought out their big friend and the mutual
attraction grew to such a degree that they
followed her constantly. When she would
lie down in the field the dogs took up their
position beside her and doztd while she
qozed.
"At last, however, one of the pups began
to tire of this way of spending its time and
became less ���attentive, before long leaving
ita brother in entire possession of its bovine
friend's affections. These were now lavished
on the remaining setter in an amazing de
free, and the cow would never let it out of
her sight. When another dog attacked her
friend she would give chase. The attacking
party, astonished at such reinforcements,
would generally withdraw, no doubt wondering at the great advance made in the
science of modern warfare. Nor did she
confine her attacks to the vagrant canine.
The misohievoua small boy who delights in
pestering dogs of all sorts and sizes, providing always that the said dogs will run away,
came in for a share of the cow's displeasure,
and many times have I seen her in full
chase after a refractory youngster, while
her setter friend, now as brave as a lion,
having unlimited confidence in the pommeling qualities of her bovine majesty, leading
tbe way, all the while executing a sort of
war dance, like an Indian chief marshalling
bis force! on to sure victory. Such a scene
would undoubtedly strike terror into the
heart of the victim, as it did into mine one
morning when I wanted to prove the statements made to me by various friends about
this strange attachment.
"How Fgot over that high fence I will
never be able to tell. For a time, at all
events, I did not share the dog's affections
for the oow, but she seemed most
solicitous to form a closer acquaintance
with me.
"The cow has been sold, and for some
time the dog missed and visibly mourned
its friend, but soon took up with the
horse and transferred i's affeotions to it,
where they now rest. The oddness of it
is that the other dog whioh formerly had
inch an affection for the cow. is now at
om with its brother on the merits of the
horse and the three are seldom   separated."
In the Kent Hopyards.
The working day in the Kent hopyard
begins with full daylight. By six o'clock
the barns let loose their inmates, and a pro-
cesaion of their pickers wends its way
through the meadows and orchards towards
the fi-ldof labor. There is plenty of water
for tbem if they like to wash; but they are
quite content with their evening ablutions,
and for the most part step from under t he
sackcloth blankets provided by the farmer,
stretoh themselves, grumble a little at they
toaroely know what, and set off. The women
encumber themselves with pots, kettles,
provisions, and babies. After an hour or
two of picking, fires are lit among the
���tripped vine-stalks and a score of simple
breakfasts are prepared.
The pay they get is not magnificent. It
averages twopence a bushel of cleanly-picked
hops, and the person who oan pick twelve
bushels in the day is reckoned a skilful and
practised hand. Women make better hop
pickers than men. They strip a cluster of
the oones in the time it takes the inexperienced man to detach three or four cones
only. They talk and sing, too, all the while,
in a manner that is highly irritating to certain of the men.
There are all sorts and conditions in I he
hop garden, so that, on the one hand you
may hear girls chanting improper music
hall catches, you have only to listen with
the other ear to be charmed by the hymns
of Moody and Sankey and the Salvation
Army. The men, as I have hinted, work
more silently and with a certain morose-
ness. It ii with them that the customary
-strike initiates in the middle of the picking,
the hops are too small or the pay is too little���the pretext is readily found. During
the strike the farmer and his family may
well be anxious, but the difficulty soon arrange! itself snd the men let to again with
a few hearty oathi as a relief to their feeling!.
Among the local agricultuial hands in the
bop garden one often hears very forcible
-accounts of the ferocity of the picken.
"They'd as soon stick a knife into you as
look at you," is a remark that was offered to
.me from several of them. Yet if they are
left to themselves and t heir owu ways, in
���o far ai theae do not affeot the well-being
of their neighbors and the property of the
farmer, they seem sufficiently inoffensive.
