Fighting it Over Again,
Montreal, Feby. 5, ���General Middletou,
formerly commander of the militia in Canada, aud who had charge of the troops during the NorlhweBt Rebellion, published an
article in the United Service Maijazinc
recently asserting that after the first day's
fighting at the battle of liatocbe, his senior
officers were of the opinion that they had
not suflicieul troops, and advised retreat,
Lieut.-Col. Houghlon, of this city, in a
loiter to tic Gazette asserts that it ��as
General iMuuUetuu whu wauled to retreat,
but thai Ins ullicers remonstrated and Brig.
Surgeon Ortou positively refused to obey
the or.li r ou lhe ground that it would kill
the sick and wounded to move them over
the i(High mails, saying he pit ferreil slaying
aud inking chances with the enemy. Middletou then countermanded the order lu retreat. I.icnt.-Col. Houghton defies General
Miildlciou to successfully contradict hia
statement.

Mysterious Murder ol a French-Canadian.
Warner. N.H., Feb. 5.���MrB. Hulduh
Symonds, a widow aged about 55 aud living
about a mile from this village, and Michael
Ploude, aged 41), her boarder, are under
arrest, charged with the murder of an aged
Frenchman, named Joseph Riendeau or
Joseph Lieudeau, who came from Canada,
and who mysteriously disappeared from
Mrs. Symonds' house about six weeks ago.
The arrest was made this morning. Both
protested their innocence. The officers thus
far have secured only enough evidence for a
strong suspicion against the accused. Ploude
has exhibited a cashier's check, drawn on
the Frenchman's favor aud endorsed by
Ploude for $572. Another mysterious fact
iu connection wiih the affair is that ltien-
deau on January 8lh drew a check for 5*572
in Ploudc's favor on the Pemigewassett
National Bank of Plymouth, using a blank
of the National Capitol Bank of Concord
und this was returned by the cashier
of the Pemigewassett Bank, with
the information that there were no
funds in that bank to Riendeau's
credi*. This check nnd let'er were found on
Ploude'** person nf ei his arrest. H-j s*ali:8
thai he hud known K cn-leuu bu l**ur days
when the check was ��iven t * him. He
offers un (xplanatlmiH for liHVing it in his
pi s tssi ii and deulea that In- evi r hud the
cashier's check, which it is known lie did
have a few days ago. Mrs. Symonds says
the Frenchman left her house to go to the
railroad station to purchase a mileage book
on which he and Ploude were to go to
Canada to purchase a pair of horses and
that she hadn't seen him since, but tbat one
of the neighbors had told her he had seen
the man in Manchester since he left her
house. It is known that he didn't gj to the
station for a mileage book.

A Negro Gets Pretty Rough Usage By a
Mob.
Lebanon, Ind., Feb. 5.���There are pros-
* pects of a lynching here to night. Saturday
j night Frank Hall, a negro, assaulted Mrs.
Akers, a widow, who lives alone with her
j children on a farm near here. Hall fled but
was subsequently arrested at his home and
I brought here. The news that a mob was
1 organ-zed, induced the sheriff to hustle the
prisoner away to Indianopolis. Tnis morn-
I ing Hall was returned for a hearing. A
mob at once surrounded the jail.
About 11 o'clock, the county prosecutor,
mounted the jail steps and pleaded with the
mob to disperse. He told them that Hall
would be \igorously punished, and said that
the jailers wife was dangerously ill and the
uoiBe might prove fatal to her. The mob
was t rying to get a ladder and demanding
tlie prisoner. At 12 o'clock the sheriff came
out of the jail with Hall to take him to the
Circuit Court. The deputies made a lunge
for him. The deputies pulled their revolvers
aud a scrimmage occurred. Three times the
mob got 'I rope about Hall's neck, hut it
waB prompt y cut. It was a constant light
to the court room, several shots being
exchanged. Hall was sentenced to 21
years' and is now lodged in the
judge's private olfice. He implores the
officers to save him. Tne mob has surrounded ihe court house aud declare that Hall
will never go to prison alive. Judge Neal
has ordered 1,000 deputies to keep the
peace, l'he mob was led by Mrs. Annie
Taylor, a woman whose daughter was
ravished about three months ago by a travelling doctor named Cottou. Since then Mrs.
Taylor has been half crazed, and the excitement to-day ssemed to drive her into a
wild frenzy. With the mob at her heels
the woman rushed wildly upon the sheriff's
posee, dragging a rope all ready fixed with
the noose. The astounded officials drew
their pistols, but before they could
act, Mrs. Taylor had, with remarkable dexterity, cast the noose over the negro's head
and in another instant the mob was dragging him acrosB the court home yard. With
qui"k preseuci of mind, one of the deputies
cut ihe rope and Hall was rescued. The
crowd blocked the way. Mrs. Taylor tied
a-othe- no-sc, and ai:u hx u.,s ���.�� ��� , jj
again the struggling wretch was dragged
several feet. He was rescued again, but
the same performance was again gone
through before he could be safely landed in
the court house. There he pleaded gu.lty
and was at once seuteuced to 21 years.

Anothor Possible Lynching Case.
Caracas, Venezuela, Feb. 5.���The trial of
the Lugo Brothers,   charged with attempting tn poison and assassinate Roberto   Rodriguez, after using him as  a tool to defraud
the bank of Venezuela out of a large amount
of money through a forged check, began last
Thursday.    Long before the hour uppointed
for the opening of the doors  of the   Palacio
Federal, the streets were filled with excited
people of all classes, so incensed   were  thoy
that it was rumored the prisoners   would he
lynched   on   their   way   to    c u i.      The
governmeut quickly nipped this i     the bud,
however, by sending an escort of forty fully
armed   soldiers.     Manuel   Felipe   was  the
first to appear upon tho streets, marching to
court in lhe   centre of a hollow   square   of
sold' rs.    Ho looked a lillie pale, but  held
hi     e -> high in the air aud looked upon the
oro       ����� th disdain.    Even   the sight of the
bloody   daggers,   revolvers and   the ropes
with which hia unsuspecting  victim was to
be lowered  into   hiB grave, did  nol disturb
him.    He took a sea'  facing the judge, who
will alone try the men, there  being no jury
system in Venezuela.  The District Attorney
opened the case for the people and made the
charge     The prisoner pleaded "uot guilty'
of ei her the   forgery   or   the   attempt  to
ass.ifsiuain     Rodriguez.      The     boy     he
claimed   to be  insaue, ihat  everybody was
intox oated and in u free   fight, he   and his
accomplices   merely   acted   in self-defen-e.
He   said the grave in the   yard   was a well
dug by his uncle ami that he had assisted in
hiding   Rodriguez,   who  was   a life  long
fri**nd.    Manuel   was   next,   brought   into
court, then the uncle Francesco  Paolo   and
finally   Rodriguez     Tho  tesiimony of the
Lugos was about   the   same.    Rodriguez in
substance repeated his story  as told on the
night of   the crime.    The   trial proper will
commence next week.    The general impression . here l�� that the   Lugos will   receive a
light sentence, as their victim  has   entirely
recovered aud t heir old father has agreed to
pay back all the   money   obtained   on   the
check t*> the bank of Venezuela.

It Was at a Meetiug In Indianapolis That
the Voice of the Great Singer Was Flint
Heard by tho Stirring Evangelist���Their
First Work.
It was at Indianapolis in 1870 that
these two men first mado each other's
acquaintance. Mr. Moody was already
displaying that zeal iu evangelistic work
which subsequently mado him famous,
though then his efforts and his reputation were confined largely to Chicago.
Mr. Sankey's homo was in Newcastle,
Pa., where he was then serving as an internal revenue officer. Kis lather was a
banker and active in politics and held
under Lincoln's appointment tin* important position of collector of inland revenue for four largo counties in western
Pennsylvania, Young Sankey was then
a Christian, having been converted a
Dumber of years before during a Methodist revival, and his talent of aong had
, already begun to bo used for his Muster.
Coming to Indianapolis to attend as a
delegate from Newcastle the national
convention of tho Young Men's Christian
association, Mr. Sankey attended one
morning a 0 o'clock prayer meeting, held
in the basement of the First Baptist
church, led by Mr. Moody. The singing
dragged, and Mr. Sankey, at the suggestion of a minister who was seated beside
him, start*sd up tho familiar hymn,
"There is a fountain filled with blood."
It went well and was followed by other
songs equally successful, and Mr. Moody
became so Interested that he looked
about to see whence the new impetus in
singing came. After the meeting closed,
with characteristic quickness of decision, Mr. Moody, hardly waiting for an
introduction, said to Mr. Sankey:
"You're the man I have been looking
for for the last eight years. Come and
lunch with me." Tho invitation wus
accepted, and later in tho day the two
men got together, and the subject of a
future combination of forces vas talked
over in downright earnest. Mr. Moody
pressed upon Mr. Sankey the duty of at
once joining him in Chicago, but in
Sankey's mind there wore some practical objections arising from his business and family connections. "I am a
government officer," ho said to Mr.
Moody, "and may find it ili..i*'iilt to get
released." "There is a belter government to serve than this," was the ro-
ply that flashed instantly out. But,
persuasive as Mr. Moody was, he did
not carry his point then and thero. Mr.
Sankey took several manths in which to
consider the matter.
That very afternoon, however, the
first Moody and Sankey publio meeting
was held, with no advertisement except
the singing as led by Mr. Moody's newly
found friend, It was an outdoor gathering, and the masses were there. Mr.
Moody brought out a box from a store
to a favorably located street corner,
mounted it, and there a short but fervent service of preaching and song was
In-ld. At tho close of this open air meeting tho two evangelists headed a procession for the Acad smyof Music, where
the convention meetings were held, singing as they marched with the crowd into the Academy of Music, the convention
having adjourned the discussion of
"How to Reach the Masses" and gone'
to supper, When the delegates got
back to the academy buildiugf, they
found it nearly half full of the very
"la: sed masses" about whom they had
been i., ���*.. ..:;,'. Mr. Moody cut shoi.
nis Bucuiid a*i*Iress, dismissed the atfdi
nee and went out with Mr. Siiiikey to
.:������: si'ineth'.lig to eat. Mr. San,*ey was
greatly uu pressed with tktssu two meetings and said to Mr. Moody, "You are
reaching the masses while other people
are talking about ilnin."
Alter tlie convention was over Mr.
Sankey went back to Newcastle and
talked the question over with his wif(
and family. He did not see his duty
clearly all at once, but Mr. Moody kept
writing for him to como to Chicago and
at  last persuaded  linn  to go  on. for a
week to look the ground over. Arriving
in Chicago in the early m.-ming, ho wont
lirst to Mr. Muihi ��� a house, reinbing
there just as fan....*>��� prayers were Icing
held. Almost before Mr. Moody introduced bim to bis family he asked turn to
-ing a hymn and Cms contribute his
part toward the Informal service of
praise. Then tho two men went out
Into the streets of tho city visiting the
sick and unfortunate.
That day must havo beon a notable
ono in the personal history of tho two
men, who afterward commanded tho
eager attention of great audiences on
both sides of the sea. On this occasion,
as two ordinary missionaries, they went
about from Imuso to house, sin:.ing and
reading the Bible and spe..,.,.!.., ,.ie worn
of cheer and hope wherever it was
needed. This was their first day's labor
together. Evening meetings wero held
during.the week in the Illinois street
church, of which Mr. Moody was the
head and leader.
On Sunday a largo meeting was held
in Farwell hall, and as the organist happened to be absent Mr. SanKey had to
sing without instrumental accompaniment, not having even a small caoiiiet
organ there. The effect of thp'servigp
upon the people there was so munted
that Mr. Moody turned to tho singer and
said, "You see I was right." There were
that night not less than 100 inquiries.
The earnest preaching and consecrated
song had gone home to many a heart.
From that time until the present these
men have been colaborers, and the story
of their career here and in Great Britain
is so familiar that it need not again be
rehearsed.���Congregationalist.

CANADA'S ENEMIES AND   THEIR
GRIT ALLIES.
It is a curious circumstance that it is the
allies of the Canadian Liberals, the Repub
lioan pirty in the United States, who have
been especially active in opposing any reforms of the McKinley tariff thnt would he
likely to be beneficial to Canada. Erastus
Wiman, who is an especial pet of the Grits,
often appearing on Canadian platforms side
by side wiLh their leaders, the other day in
a speech delivered before the New York
Board of Trade urged that Canadian agricultural products, minerals, and lumber
should be shut out from the Uuited Slates
by heavy duties. Still more recently, Mr.
Hitt, of Illinois, demanded that Canadian
lumber, coal, iron ore and raw materials
Bhall continue lo be taxe.i as they are at
present under th" McKinley tarff, till Canada agrees to accept reciprocity, that is to
say, agrees to take her tariff from Washington, and tn mak*' Canada a commercial dependency of the United States. We recom-
..mend .Mr. IT tt's modesty in that he did uot
at once say till Canada asks to b *, annexed
to the United States! Bul perhaps Mr.
Hitt, in view of the wide-spread distress
now existing in the States, did not
sonsidcr the present a good time to
urge annexation. Reciprocity, in the sense
explained by Sir John Thompson in his
maritime speech, viz., that the Canadian
Government will follow the Americana step
hy step iu the remission of duties on imports, is fair and reasonable, a*..I will undoubtedly take place; but. reciprocity in the
Grit aud American sense, that Canada
should take her tariff from Washington and
resign her commercial independence, will
never bo adopted by true Canadians, who
value their nationality and political independence. It is especially to be nottd that
this discrimination against Canada���this
unwillingness to place her on a level with
other countries foreign to the United Slates,
has been pertinaciously urged boih by ihe
Republican pi ess and 1 the repr 'BPU'Ht'vi n
of the party in C t giv-***, t,h, i in Miy, l*j
the speoial Mends and allies uf the Gnu,
the men with whom iheir leaders fuiegalhor
and enter into swee*. counsel wheu they go
south. The (irits, when there is opportunity
to do so, always prove themselves the anti-
British and anti-Canadian p.'-rty, the friends
and associates of Canada's enemies. It is
sad to haye lo say it, but it is no less true
than sad.

SOME AMERICAN  SNARLING
TICISM.
Speaking of the proposal arrangement
with Lobengula, the Matabele King,
that if he surrenders his life and Interests
will lie safely guarded, that he will not he
banished from Africa, and that a tract i f
land snllicii'iit to maintain him will be set
apart for his use south of the Orange river,
the San Francisco Chronicle says:
"This arrangement is sought to be mado
by a nation which has never wearied ol toll-
ing how shamefully the American Natiou
has Irea'ed the Indians of this continent,
and h *w the innocent nd man was swindled
aod delraudtd out nf his lands. This same
highly virtuous and moral nation, however,
hue one rule of othioB f*r America and another for Africa. Afle** backiDg up a private corporation in its efforts to roh Lobengula of his land and w**ging war upon
nativ.s whose oi ly crime lay in defending
their property, the British Government
offers to settle with Lobengula if ho will
surrender by giving him back a little slice
of his own land and feeding and clothing
him while he lives.
"The career of the English in Africa does
not redound to the credit of that great and
powerful nation. It has been a continuous
record of greed, rapacity and spoliation.
English settlers have presumed upon the
good nature of the natives, quarrels have
arisen or been fomented, and then Groat
Britain has used her military power for
purposes of conquest. This is not alone au
American view. Henry Labouchere in
Truth has sigmatized the whole Mashona
and Matabele business as a national shame
and disgrace, and he is by no means alone in
his opinion Africa seems to bo regarded
by England ns lawful prey and the natives
as having no rights which a powerful nation
Is bound to respect."
l'he treatment propoaed by the Britiah for
Lobengula is in bright contrast to that extended by the Americans to Sitting Bull
after the Custer massacre. The Sioux chief
was first driven into banishment in Canada,
and when yeara efter he was permitted to
return,the Americans seized the first oppor
tunity that offered to kill him, in revenge
for the slaughter of Custer and his men. Of
this there is no doubt or question. In view
of thiB circumstance���the Americans themselves seeing a close parallel between the
slaughter of Custer's party by the Sioux
and that of Wilson and his detachment by
tbe Matabeles���it ill-becomes an American,
to tpeak in the terms the Chronicle uses of the merciful arrangement
which the British propose to make with Lobengula, if he surrenders. And the arrangement if made would be kept, which ia more
than could be said of arrangements made by
the Americans with the Indian tribes.
These aa a rule are always broken aa soon as
it suits the interests of the Ameiicaus to
break them. ThiB ia one main reason of the
chronic hostilities between tbe Americans
and the Indian tribes, till al last the latter
have been all but exterminated. It iB a
well known fact that the Americans not
only cheat and oppress those ludian tribes
that have submitted to their authority, but
in their Indian wars have long systematically
acted on the atrocious motto: "A good
Indian is a dead Indian." Hence their Indian wars have for the most part been
literally ware of extermination. The recoid
of them is indeed a bloody one.
As to the treatment of tho South African
tribes by the Briiish, it has for
many years, at all events since the abolition
of slavery throughout the. British Empire,
been merciful in comparison with the treatment of the Indian tribes by the Americans.
It is well known that the hostility of the
Boers to the British ia mainly due to the
fact that the latter would not allow them to
oppress the natives and make slaves of
them. British policy in South Africa has
heen one of mercy and protection to the
natives. Their wars with the Zulus, with
tbe Matabeles, and now with the Sofas,
have been wars against robber tribes which
murdered, plundered aud oppressed native
tribes weaker than themselves without meroy. To put down and humble
the power ef the Zulus, Matabeles, and
Sofas was simply a service to humanity, for
which the British deserve not reproach but
credit. If they had done nothing else in
Africa, they would by * his alone have justified
their rule. As for Henry Lahouchere's
testimony against his own oountry, it does
not matter what he says. He is simply a
Radical who has imbibed republican principles, who has very little respect for truth,
whose mission it is lo revile and misrepresent Briiish rule, and who, like Tom Paine,
is no better than a traitor to England. The
carter of the Biitish in Souih Afrioa, so far
from being a discredit to them, constitutes
one of their highest claims to admiration in
the opinion of all well-informed men. The
article in the Chronicle, from which we have
[iioted, is simply a disgraco to American
journalism. If written in good faith, it is an
astonishing instance of ignorance ; but if
written by one who possesses a competent
knowledge of the facts, it is neither more
nor less than a foul, deliberate, and malicious slander.

THE Ami.ku:an.s now appear to be able to
make armor plate of a very superior sort for
their ships of war. This may be fairly
claimed as a triumph of tho protection
policy, which has wonderfully developed the
manufacture of iron and steel in the United
States.

Ali.MIRAI. 1)A GAMA is expected immediately ti, give no*ice of his intention to
bombard Rio. He must, it appears, give
forty-eight hours' notice before he will be
allowed by the American fleet to do bo, in
order that non-combatants may have time
to got out of harm's way. It is certainly
human*) to compel notice to be given of an
intention to bombard; bul the advantage of
this to I'eixoto is evident, anil the Americans may be fairly suspected of consulting
his interests rather than ihoao of i he people
of Rio in compelling no'ii.o to be given. At

Cotton's  Motion    Emasculated.���Boaven
After Baker.
VICTORIA, Feb. 5,���[Special]���In the Legislature this afternoon Cotton, the leader of
the Independents, moved au adjournment of
tho House in order to direct attention to
tho fact that the president of the Kxecu'.ivo
Council tho Hon Mr. E. Pooley, is appearing against, tho Government   in the  case   of
tbe Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway C> vs
the Attorney General for Briiish Columbia,
who submitted us reference tn full court, , f
Province for determination of the ownership
of precious metals in the railway belt. He
considered that Mr. Pooley; having taken a
brief from the largest corporation of the
Province against the peopl**, was even worse
than Attorney General Burton's action iu
New South Wales, in appearing against the
railway commissioners, and which cost the
dismissal of the colonial government. He
proposed to give the government a chance
to determine what action it will take in the
matter by adjourning the House for a day.
Premier Davie complained that. Mr.
Cotton had sprung the matter
on the House and disputed
that the case was parallel with the New
South Wales incident, Mr. Pooley not being
a salaried member of the Cabinet. Technically, no Queen's Counsel should appear in a
suit against the Crown, but innumerable
prooedente eould be found for Mr. Pooley's
aotion.
The Hon. Beaven aud Messrs. Hall, Hun-
tor aud Martin spoke briefly.
Mr. Pooley holding the motion to be out
of ordor. though asserting his ability to defend himself, the motion was lost on a
division by nineteen to teu.
For Wednesday the Hon. Beaven has a
resolution, censuring tho Hon. Baker, Provincial Socrelaay and Minister of Mines and
Education, for using his official position in
order tn float a townsite soheme and sell
Cranbrook lots at prioes far beyond actual

In reference to his precious metal finder,
Mr. Harry Byrne, of Vancouver, says:
"Now I will tell you what I am willing to
do. I will bet any man an oven ��100 that I
will find $100 if he deposits it iu either
silver or gold, in say a ten-acre field. He
can be followed by auother man, who, while
not seeing the exact, spot, cau watch him
from a distance. I will then go oul with
the aFsistant and promise to locale the
treasure, and by the absence of the real
hider, I will put a stop to the theory of accomplishing it by mind reading. If I. fail, I am
willing to forfeit my 8100, but if I win, I
shall of course get the other man's money.
Now you can tell anyone that I am willing
to accept this wager."
Crystal lake) on the other side of Mount
Benson. The Nanaimo's hid themselves in
the bush and to their no little astonishment
recognised their quondam prisoners who
escaped on the eve **f execution with about
30 others in the outlaw camp. The Nanaimo
chief gave a signal and his par :,y wallowed
iu ihe gore of the desparadoes not. oue bring
left to tell the tale. Thus was the "Evil
Spirit" forever dispelled from Mount Benson and the Indians could pursue their
vocations in wood or stream in peace in that
locality. J. M. B.
A Local Logend.
The following .legend of Mount Benson
was contributed by an old citizen of Nauaimo to the column., of Westward Ho, a biweekly paper which was published in this
city in the year 1886,
Mount Benson in the early days used to
be called the "Mount of lhe Evil Spirit" by
lhe superstitious Iudians. The followi* g
will show the leasou why they ga\e it suen
an uncanny name. Iu the Nauaimo tribe ol
Indians tbere were a number **f desperadoes
and malcontents who were c**n Inually caus
ing trouble und committing crimes; these
were s**cured by the law-abiding tnemti'-rs
of lhe tribe and condemned to capital
punishment. Tlie night before execution,
the prisoners escaped and no one kuew
whither. The results of a search being
fruitless, it. was supposed that they had left
lhe islam;. Not lung after, any Indians
who went berrying, fishing, or hunting in
the woods adjacent to this city all disappeared mysteriously. And but few- Indians
who left the camps for more than a mile or
so, evor returned, several being found with
their i hi outs cut aud otherwise mutilated.
All those who attempted to climb the
mountain were never heard of again, so that
the impression gained ground among the
natives that the mountain was the abode of
un evil spirit, who was jealous
of their trespassing on his do-
maius. An Iudiau being sick in the
camp, the medicine man recommended a
deonction of e rtain herbs and roots to be
pieparoil, and the brother of the patient
volunteered to go ami prooure them. After
travelling a considerable dislauce iu the
woods and getting what he thought sufficient material for the purpose, he turned
homewards. He had travelled about, a mile
wheu he saw a fuoi print in some loose
ground. Suspecting that it was his own,
ho tried his foot in it and found that
his surmise wus correct; also that he had
travelled in a circle and was los; in the
trackless forests of those parts of Vancouvor Ish.od. Aft* r some time spent in
consideration, he proceeded in his wanderings and on hearing the ripplings of a
stream,gave a shout of joy and leaped down
to the river bank, immediately afterwards
he heard a war-whoop, and on looking behind, was astonished to see two demoniacal
savages running after him, and an arrow
sped past the Indians ear which, however,
made him run the faster.
The pursued Indian, as luck would have
it, put up a deer which proceeded him and
on his suddenly falling iuto a hole the pursuers passed him by in chase of the deer
which thoy supposed to be their human
quarry, and on being soon distanced gave
up the chase, their conversation being overheard by the concealed Indian. Whilst
they returned ou their homeward way he
heard that there was i< large party of desperate Indians in the valley behind Mount
Benson. After finding that the neighbourhood was clear, the concealed Indian followed the river down and made his way
home, and this is the reason that the stream
is called "Chase river."
Ho gave the alarm on returning home and
next morning abou' 50 well armed warriors
left the Nanaimo camp and going up the
river, they oame upon tho outlaws camped
upon the banks of a lake   (now  known  as
As to Prince Alfred's Nationality.
Berlin, Feb. 7.���The question of the
present, nationality of the Duke of Saxe-
Cobuig and Gothu, the Duke of Edinburgh,
came up iu the Reichstag 'o-day. Herr
Robert Friedberg, National Liberal, asked
Chancellor von Caprivi whether i'. was iu
harmony with German interests that the
reigning Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha
should be at this time a British subject. He
further desired to be informed if a foreigner
could become a German Sovereign. The
Chancellor replied that the Duke had legally
succeeded to the German title and thruue of
Saxe-Ciiburg and Gotha ami had thereby
become a German. The. fac*. that he was a
German Sovereign, excluded the possibility
of his beiug a foreign subject. Hen Bonio,
Secretary of State for the Duchies stated in
behalf of the Duke, that he was not the subject of any foreign power. He held no obligations under Great. Britain that were contrary to his German Sovereignty.

LOCAL  NEWS.
The Mongolians' "At Home."
A large number of citizens visited Chioa-
town last night to see the New Year's eele-
bratious there. The continuous ignition of
fire crackers was kept up most of the day
and well on into the nigh', and a large number of rockets were discharged from different
positions of the Chinese quarters after dark.
The crowd in the street gave it a remarkably busy appearance, the who'e length
being dimly lit with small lanterns. A
number of ladies from town were taking in
the annual celebration as also large numbers
of small boys aud oihers, who had by their
continued pushing iuto the differeut establishments caused most of the Chiuese rcsi
dents to "sport their oak," one Mongolian
gentleman having become so wrath at the
continued knocking at his door that he
sallied out with a red hot poker to prevent
the entrance of the disturbers
of his domestic enjoyments. Others mote
socially inclined, allowed free iugrei-s to
those who wished to visit hem, and treated
them with the greatest courtesy, offering
cigars sweets and wiue to lhe arrivals, and
doing all that they could to entertain and
interest their friends from town. To-night
it is believed is to be lhe gala uight of the
festivities and doubtless large numbers of
townsfolk will be on hand to see what they
oan. But scant, coustesy is used by a large
number when they wish to enter a Chinese
habitation, it being popularly considered
that if a door is locked, and admittance re
fused, that the persons desiring to enter
have patience to wait till a Chinaman conies
out, or suddenly forcing the door open and
effecting a forcible eutry is strictly within
the rules of etiquette, as necessary to be
observed in dealing with the heathen
Chinee.

"Alfred Will never agree to that���never," cried Rose. "Do yon think lie would
consent in our laboring to keep him in
College al such a crisiH ms this? No. indeed; 1 know my brother better. Much
aa be prizes his literary advantages, they
would never repay him for the deprivation * f sharing with ns in these united
efforts."
"Patience, Rosie," interrupted Mrs.
Newton, Bmiling. "Wo have not a doubt
of our boy's willingness to share in nil
the self denial or hardship that may bo
in store for us, but his college course ia
nearly completed,and hewill bo capable
of so mnch move remunerative labor if
he can enter upon life with a well cultivated mind that it would seem wise
for him to finish, even if some extra exertion on our part and self denial on his
may be necessary."
"I think," said George, "wo understand your* wishes and am sure we
would all most gladly aid in perfecting
them, but I fully agree with sister that
it, will bo difficult to convince Alfred
that ho cannot participate in our work
from the commencement."
"I appreciate tho sentiments you both
express," said Mr. Newton, "but we will
leave the matter for a later discussion.
I must now have a few moments' conversation with your mother, while you, my
daughters, lay aside your riding attire
and ring for tea. This evening wo must
be denied to all callers and meet in a
strictly family council."
CHAPTER IV.
*We turn with great reluctance, even
for a few moments, from this peaceful
home, whose inmates look calmly to the
uncertain future, upheld by a "conscience void of offense toward God and
man," to a most painful contrast.
A more wretched person can hardly
be imagined than Lo Barron as with
bowed head and folded arms he passe*!
from tho store and bent his steps homeward. Ah, what a home awaited him1
Well he knew how the tidings ho must
communicate would be received by hia
family.
Whichever way he turned despair and
misery staved him in the face, and hia
own conscience rose from its long slumbers, and now a stern accuser set hs
sins in ordi r before him. It carried bim
back to his youthful days and traced
the beginnings of the dark t**-.r.*: est that
now raged so fiercely around him,
threatening utter destruction. It whis-
pered <>!' tho father, too early lost, whose
whole life had exemplifled.the truep: 'n-
ciples of integrity he so earnestly urged
upon his son; of the tender mother,
whose latest breath bade him follow in
his father's footsteps and trust in his
father's God. Now it recalls the fascinations of tho gay young beauty
whose heart could only be bought by
wealth and foolish splendor, not given
in generoud love. Then came trooping
before his fevered vision the teuipta-
tioas t*i vas' * i p x-rla' ions, far overreaching hones y, i" w.:;*:*. he i* .*! yielded,
and whiih, izzQst unfortunate';.-, proved
so successful as to plp.ee him early
among we,.'., !iy men an. enabled him
to Monro the long coveted bride.
Ah, how Boon did he wake from his
enoljantihg dream of lovo to find all that
his heart had so desired turn to bitter
ashes! 'J':*...-*, bad <';"..ppoii.unent in the
home he had i o fondly pictured and the
little satisfaction found in the wealth
and high poiition gained by scarcely
honest means recalled his parents' efforts
to inculcate true principles, which, had
they heen adopted, might even then
havo shielded him from th.- sorrows, already foreshadowed, in the early period
of his middle life. When at las-it Mr.
Newton accepted him as a partner, how
firmly did he vowto hisoom,-:. ncen&ver
again to indulge in the dangerous experiment of unscrupulous speculation! The
strict prohibitions ogainsl any suoh attempts, wliieh were n part <���!' tliorulua
of Mr. N( ., .o.'i's business, helped to eo i-
firai him in these wise resolutions, Oneo
secure ef the partnership, lie most anxiously strove to conceal irom Mi", Newton somu of the business transaction? of
his earlier life, well assured if once
known his continuanco in his present
position would be of very short duration.
For years he had stood well with the
community. A few whispers of his former "haste to be rich" reached Mr.
Newton, but after tt strict yet quiet investigation ho found no cause to believe
the rumors or withdraw his confidence,
aud the reports gradually died away.
Meantime his home waa aot the br'**'.t
and refreshing spot his youthful fancy
had pictured. Lie Barron was not naturally a bad hearted man. His love for
his wife had been almost idolatrous. He
fancied her perfection, but a few short
mouths dispelled tho illusion, and for
many years he had been the slave of her
whims and caprices.
Mrs. Lo Barron was early educated to
feel that wealth and high social position
should be her life's ambition. Her parents were poor, but very proud, and
when the rising young merchant, Lo Barron, wooed and won their daughter their
joy was unbounded.
Whose house so grond? Whose carriage, with its supci b horses and livenee
outriders, made such daily seHsatioi .*
Whose parties, that vied with the tone oJ
the old world, were so much (he style aa
their daughter's, Mrs. Lo Barron?"
.or...Qaocr. nfiiKBastXa, B*93��t
"Was not this sufficient to satisfy a parent's wildest ambition? Why should
they be troubled or dissatisfied if their
child's privato life was one of strife and
peevish complaining���if misrule and un-
governefl pasdeta made perpetual discord
between the inmates of that elegant
mansion?
Such were the parents of Mrs. Le Barron, and such the sentiments thoy had
exhibited and taught her to act upon
from her childhood. Truly they had
"sown the wind," and the terrible harvest was ripening fast.
Before Mrs. Le Barron's insane extravagance her husband's wealth molted
like f-ost beforo tho sun. Ho saw the
riches for which he had forsaken his
father's God "taking to themselves
wings," and the position among his brother merchants, whoso foundations he had
laid in sand, was already crumbling
away and tottering to its fall. Sleepless
nights and days of dread were silvering
his hair and bowing the tall form tha:
once towered so erect abovo his follow^.
He was a premature old man.
When Mr. Newton went abroad, Lo
Barron's anxieties were almost too
weighty for him to preserve tho semblance of self control. It was said Lo Barron was confining himself too closely to
his business, and Mr. Newton with his
usual unselfishness proposed that Be
should remain at home and that the invalid should have tho advantage of the
change. Ah, little could Mr. Newton imagine tho shock this kind proposition
gave him. Tho miserable man knew that
to leave then would be swift destruction, revealing at once the fearful position of his own affairs.
But still able to preserve an outward
calm ho courteously declined the proffered relaxation on tho plea of great distaste for traveling, and with an earhesi
assurance that hia health was firmer than
his appearance indicated he smilingly
bade his friend farewell.
Lo Barron struggled through the first
year of his friend's absence, knowin..
surely that this absenco and tho unsuspicious nature of the junior partner
alone saved him from speedy exposui-t.
In this stale the grand temptation foun;i
him. Goaded to madness he joined ham! -
with tho tempter and fell, gaining for
himself ono more short respite from
clamorous creditors by a clever forgery
of Mr. Newton's name. And now he-
goes to tell this fatal story to thoso whos *
sins have united to drag him down to irretrievable destruction. Bankrupt! Di.-
honored! A forger! Fugitive from justice or only shielded by him whom ho
has pecuniarily ruined, yet bearing in his
owli heart tho punishment Of his crime .
how can he endure the terrible meetin,
with those harsh spirits at home?
Who would willingly follow him ash
enters his dwelling and listen to th
cruel recriminations, the bitter tauu\.
with which that heartless woman, wil*
with rage, assails him, when, withtrem
bling frame nnd quivering lips, ho r*.
veals the misery and shamo before then
\1 tl.Jj ifffl
' Poor Le Barron sank into a chalm.
Wo cannot describe tho terror of that
scene, and surely we would not if we
could. It would be like standing by the
mouth of the pit. It was the few words
of this dr. ,.,.,ul scene that Lillian and
Rose heard whioh sent them bewildered
and frightened home to their parents.
Poor Lo Barron sank into a chair at
the first outburst of his wife's passion,
stunned and moaning like one in a fearful dream.        	
CHAPTER V.
Edward Newton at 20 was left an orphan with a fine education, but almost
penniless. His parents were hoping to
see him established in some profession
congenial to his refined and intellectual
tastes, but their sudden death changed
all his prospects and compelled him to
look for some employment that should
provide at once for immediate wants.
A distant relative offered him a situation in his store far beneath that which,
without vanity, he might havo hoped for.
But with an unusual degree of good,
practical common sense for ono so young
he accepted the offer at once, knowing
that he had energy and knowledge that
would enable him to rise rapidly if he
was faithful to his trust.
A very few weeks sufficed to show Mr.
Stanly that tho new clerk was greatly
superior to his position, but tho old gentleman was cautious and suspicions and
had no intention of making auy hasty
ohange. He had given Edward his present occupation because of favors received
many years ago from the young man's
father, when Stanly greatly needed a
friend, and for this he had felt compelled
to offer tho position to his son, if but to
satisfy his qwn conscience,    "Thon," he

A bhort Story, by Sloan & Seott.
Durii g the month of February we are always busy taking stock, and naturally come across a large number of Odds
and Ends. N<-w you know yourself���or at least most p ople know���that it DOES NOT PAY to carry goods over from
one season to another. You .^ee, those goods that lay on the shelves from year to year, until some of them are almost
old enough to vote, are eating themselves up in interest, and interest is one of those things that increase at a most alarming rate, especially if you are not watching it pretty close.
Now, this is what we are going to do. Commencing Thursday, February 1st, we shall institute an immense Remnant
and Oddment Sale, and shall surprise everybody by the insinuating manner in which we shall throw stuff out over our
counters and tables. You can't but admit that we have g ven you some big surprises, one way and another, in the past
year.   But THIS TIME we shall caus* the most incredu'ous to exclaim, " Well, I don't see how th*y can do it."
Remember, this Sale is only for February, and as there are only 24 working days in that month, you will require to
get around about every day while it las* s, so as to reap the full benefit.

An Expert Fancier.
Mr. James Sharp of Wellington is an
expert poultry fancier, having bteu a most
successful breeder and the winner of numerous prizes. At tho recent show in Nanaimo he took the first and second prizeB
for white Leghorn cockerels, and first prize
for white Leghorn pullels, also tying second
on hens. He has one dozen cockerels for
sale and anyone wishing to improve their
stock, has now a good opportunity to do so.
Mr. Sharp has devoted teu to fifteen years
to this especial breed aud is now well vorsid
on it. The Rev. Fiinton's white Leghorn
breeding pen, which took t>ie first prize,
was from Mr. Sharp's s!oek. Being unable
to leave his employment, Mr. Sharp will
not exhibit ui, Victoria, fearing to trust hiB
birds away unless he accompanies them.
