Jacksonville, Fla., Jau. 25���The long
drawn nut agony is ovor at lust. The talk
in do more of injunctions, martial law,
flights to the woods aud obdurate governor's
but is all of the amazing manner in which
I orbett knock) d out Michel], in less than
three rounds, and nearly knocked him out
in two. Th* I'e Itris been so much uncertainty
and delay, that the crowds which struggled
through the wet sands to the barn called an
arena, and there met with auother delay of
an hour, did not believe the fight would
take place until they saw the combatantH
face to face in the ring, and then they bad
scarcely settled down to an enjoyment of
the CoultS*. lefo.e it ua-. end. il. Tile bailie
was surprising to lhe point uf amazement, because the man who had fought
Sullivan to a draw in three hours aud ten
Minutes in ('nauiilly, waa to day never a
menace, even to Corbett was whipped in
two rounds ami only went into lhe third
round to be fininhed according to the Queens-
berry rules. After Corbett began fighting
seemed to consider Mitchell nothing but a
chopping block, he abandoned nearly every
idea of defence, and fought his man savagely, and with manifest determination to finish
him quickly. Yet even in such a battle,
Corbett suffered not much mere than he
might in a lively set to with his trainer. He
left the ring without a mark, leaving his
senseless opponent to be carried out. These
are some of the thini's which amuZti lhe
critics who are discussing the great
but brief battle from every point
of view, and come to only one
opinion that Corbett is a marvellous
pug.)i8t. Thtre will never be another
word heard about Uorbett's lack of hit* ing
power, he hummered Mitchell terribly today and delivered his blows with snap, precision and what some have denied him,
terrific force. In the ring, stripped, he
looked bigger than when he fought Sulli
van, yet Mitchell, although four and a
quarter inchts shorter, did not look small
iu comparison. Mitchell is frequently described as a big Utile big man, and so true is
it that he gives this impression, that no oue
who saw them to day had any sense of a big
man being matched with a little one. While
Corbett had real, though not very apparent
advantage in size, lie had none in condition.
Mitchell was fit to battle, if he ever waB,
and looked as young as when he met Sulli
van in the Madison Square Gardens. Going
over and over these points, as the critics are
doing to-night, they are compelled to agree
in one conclusion, that Coibali is vastly
Mitchell's superior in science, and that of
oourse has been the quality on which Vlii-
chell has gained his great reputation.
After the fight, C *rbett and Mitchell
were arrested and placed under $15,C JO
bonds. The lighters m*.;t in the court room
this evening and cordially shook hands.
Mitchell made a speech in which he expressed regret for having uttered many
hitler sayings against Corbett and said In*
was glud to declare that he had been whip
ped by a man in every way worthy of
championship honors. It is not though
tire court proceedings will be more mat
formal.

brought to bear ou Governor Markham was
too heavy to pass without some acknowl

afternoon the governor gave assurance that
he would commute the sentence of McNulty

by the governor recites many of the same
facts as in the last decision, but says recent
developments have brought new light on the

Princess Colonna's Case.
Pakis, Jan. 24 ���lhe hearing of the
Princess Colouua's oase agaius her husband
for legal separation began to-day after several postponements. M. Dubnit, the advocate for the Princess, was pleading in another court, and M. Deveille requested that
further postponement be granted. M. Des-
j minis objected to auy further delay and
the court ordered that the case be proceeded with. M. Desjardius said that tile
children had uot been allowed to be
liken to see Prince Colonna, despite
the order of the court granting
him that privilege, on the pretext
that hi was living at a hotel, "Is not the
princess," he asked, "living al a liotel?" He
recited the history of the marriage, which
took pace in Februvy 1889. The wife's
prop,..! ly, he said, foiiuud separate estate
under her own control. This was according
to Italian law, but contrary to European
custom. Mi. MacKay, the step-father of
the Princess, had not given her a dowry.
He simply granted to her an annual allowance. The illustrious family of Prince Colonna was not wiihout fortune. The Prinoe
recently inherited a considerable sum of
money fiom an uncle. M. Desjardins
argued that the r ghts of foreigners having
a domicile iu rjneir own country were
alienable, and could not be attacked by the French courts. He dissected the plea of the Princess, that
since his marriage the Prince had lived in
Paris, virtually abandoniug Italy and that,
therefore, action could lie brought against
trim here. M. lle.-j .nine- quoted lruui an
official certificate, issued in December last,
to show that the Prince undoubtedly remains an Italian citizen. The registrar of
the Naples law courts had furnished the defence with a certificate showing that the
Prince's name appears ou the jury list. He
is a member of the Naples military club.
The census of the department of Seine
stated that his domicile was in Naples.
There were various deeds signed by the
Prince, before a no ary public, proving ihat
his principal domicile was in Naples, and
that he merely had a resilience in Paris.

A' 11 o'clock the dancers repair* d to the
supper loom where*a recherche cold collection of substantial and satisfactory kind
awaited them. The tables were spread with
cold meats of all kinds, relishes and a
variety ot cakes, sweets and j-llies. The
national oatcake and the venerable Haggis
were not forgotten, the latter appearing
steaming hot and looking as described:
''Fair fa' ve'er honest sonsie face
Great chieftain of the puddirr' race.
Mrs Gibson was responsible for the oatcakes and the Haggis, which both did credit
to her. Mrs. Hilton, Misa i ucas, Mrs.
Wilson, Miss Lee, and Mrs. Lecoy lookid
after the comfort and wains if the numerous guests in the supper mom. The 1* monads and claret cups were looked after by
Mr. Dempsey, and pronounced to be good
by the daucers during the thirsty internals.
The Bupper room was decorated with some
stage scenery and a pic'ure ot a Caledonian
of the R**yal Highlanders pursuing an imaginary Joe, up to hiB kilt in white heather.
As to the decorations in the dancing room,
they reflected great credit on Mr. Sloan and
his assistants. Bunting and other materials
are usually available, but it requires some
art and skill to make it effective in display.
This effect was fully produced in the Opera
House last night. And all the appointments
by the Reception Committee and the floor
managers were well arranged and carried
out in easy working manner.
The reception committee was as follows:
Messrs. Wm. Sloan, J. VV. Graham, J. A.
Ward Bell, W. H. Morton, A. McDonald,
Wm. McGregor, Dr. McLeod, A. McGregor,
J. Patterson; and the floor managers Messrs.
D. C. McKenzie, W. K. Leighton, XV. H.
M"rtnn, A. McGregor.
Several of the gentlemen were arrayed
in the Highland costume, among whom Mr.
Moan was cunSj.ieUouo with Ins "bonnet
blue" and Prince Charlie jacket of handsome velvet, while Mr. Beeton fairly shone
with cairngorms and the appendages incidental to t he dress. To the latter gentleman we are indebted for the correct Gaelic
spelling of the grand march, "Pibroch
Dhonal Dhu," which being literally inter-
pnted is, Black Donald the Piper.
The danc��s were as follows: After the
grand m .rch, 1 lancers, 2 waltz, 3 schot-
tische, 4 Scotch reel, 5 waltz, 8 polka, 7
Highland schottische, 8 lancers, B Jersey,
10 waltz, 11 Vinton, 1? Scotch reel, 13
comus waltz, r*�� seh.'ttische, 45 lancers, 16
waltz, 17 Highland schottisc'ie, 18 Jersey,
li) waltz, 20 lancers, 21 polka, 22schottische,
2.'i waltz, 24 Circassian circle, extras.
Amongst the many pretty gowns that appeared last night, were several of white
nun's veiling, trimmed with oriental lace,
others of the same material with valencien-
neB lace. Some handsome toilettes of white
China silk, black satin mervellievx, trimmed
with black Maltese lace and Peau de Soie,
trimmed with white point d'aleucon lace.
A great, numher of natural flowers were
worn, with very pretty effect, and
many ladies wore sash*s of the different
tartans representing the *'lans of the Stuart,
Gordon, McDonald, Campbell, McGregor
and Mclntyre. Oue of the especially pretty
costumes of this type was of white silk,
with a sash of Stuart tartan. Of other
dresses there were black applique on net,
and a eery pretty rlectrio blue surah, faced
wi'h pink, anil a green pongee, wi'h a cors-
Kg., nt b'aek velvet; also a charming costume
of oilnv'n colour* d surah silk with a "v"
sh pel c rsnge, irimmed with lyonease
fl 'irti.'t* , and i h uds'ime red nuns veiling,
with puffed sleeveB and flounced skirt.
The above will gice some idea of the
varied scene, when with such costumes
were mixed Highlanders wearing Prince
Charlie jackets, with kilts and plaids of
different aud distinguishing tartans. The
dances were interesting and varied, many
of the essentially Scottish having a bagpipe
accompaniment, while in reels aud flings
the grace and agility of the merry throng
of dancers, lent an air of harmony to the
Gaelic surroundings of the hall, both in
decoratious and mottoes.
The decorations of the hall were splendid,
including Chinese lamps suspended in long
rows across from end to end, the walls being
decorated with pictures of Highlanders,
quotations from Burns'poems, and 'astefully
draped all round, whilst the een're "f lhe
lower gallery had a large portrait *-l Robert
Burns, draped with the McGregor lartan,
anil surmounted on the upyer gallery by the
well known Gaelic motto, "Clreud Mile
Faille." Around the building were also
suspended flags and banners, interspersed
wi'( * *���("* head, an innovation in the way of
deci'i*-' tons, adding greatly to the general
effec , The stage was converted into a
foyer, also handsomely decorated with
banners, and over the entrance the inscription "Should auld acquaintance be forgot."
The Htgland Fling was danced hy Mr. A.
Beeton, who afterwards, with Miss McDonald, danced the Sheantrues. Boih of
the dances were very gracefully performed.
The piper was Mr. R. G. He.-.derson, of
Vaneouver, while Herm's orchcs'ra supplied the dance music, assisted by Professor
Treii'lnll, **f Vancouver.
The following letter'from Mr. W.Skene,
the president of I he Vancouver St. Andrews'
Caledonian Society was   received  yes crday
to finish.
Among the dancers were: The Misses Roe,
Philo, Taylor, Watkins, Glaholm, Caldwell,
Keddy, Manuel, Smiths (2), Welch, Steele,
Hilbert, Kitchin, McDonald, M. McDonald,
and several other young ladies whose names,
unfortunately, we could not secure.

Deak Mr. Sloan:���Thanks   very much

NANAIMO, B. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 26, 1894.
Adventures of Mrs. Peary Among
the Esquimaux.
A Brief Aeeount of the Trip of the Oo******
White Woman Wbo Haa Evar
Ventured Bo ���**��*��
North.
Mrs. Robert E. Peary, who accompanied the explorer on his daring arctic
journey and has returned safely with
the party to St. John's, N. F., writes to
the New York Herald as follows concerning her adventurous trip:
We saw the first herd of deer on September i and got three at the head of
McCormiek bay, where we went to start
the party to place a depot on Humboldt
Glacier. His party, consisting of As-
trup, Gibson and Yerhoeff, wen: baffled
by storms and returned in four days.
Astrup and Gibson started again on
September 29 and made about thirty
miles, but were forced back on account
of deep, soft snow. During one of our
hunting trips we had a narrow escape
from drowning by having our boat
crushed by a herd of angry walruses,
many of which were wounded by us,
but we killed seven and escaped without a scratch.
The winter, although we had a hundred days of darkness with temperature
ranging from thirty to fifty degrees
below zero, passed pleasantly. Every
day we took long walks on snow shoes,
and often I indulged in a sledge ride,
drawn by one of my Newfoundlands
and one Esquimau dog, and yet cannot
boast of a single frost bite.
We received numerous visits from the
natives, all of whom were bright, merry, willing creatures, anxious to please.
They njoyed our coffee and biscuit,
but cared little for sweets. The women
were especially interesting to me, and
many hours were spent in watching
them at their work.
Mr. Peary, with Astrup and Dr. Cook,
went on the ice cap on February 14 to
watch the sun rise, and for two days
following we had the most terrible wind
and rainstorm I ever witnessed. For a
time I feared our house, which we
called Red Cliff, would be washed away,
but we were not seriously damaged.
The party on the ice fared still worse
and were glad to get back to Red Cliff.
On April IS, there being constant daylight, Mr. Peary took me with him on a
tour of Whale sound and Inglefield
gulf. We traveled by night and slept
by day. Our sledges, sixteen and fifteen feet long, were drawn by thirteen
fine Esquimau dogs. Our driver, a
native, handled the team as only a
native can. We slept without shelter,
and our bed was the snow after pulling
ourselves into a deerskin bag, which was
' fastened tightly about the neck.
We repeatedly made forty miles in a
single march, and it was a fine sight to
see those thirteen beauties, with heads
up and tails waving over their backs,
dashing over ,the ice.,^ We visited all
the settlements and once I was inveigled into spending the night in one
of their snow igloos, but declined all
further invitations. We returned to
Red Cliff at the end of a week and the
inland ice. party at once began preparations to leave.
Mr. Peary left on May 3, no one remaining at Red Cliff but Mr. Verhoeff
and myself. Matt returned on May 8,
and on June 3 the supporting party.
Dr. Cook and Gibson, returned. They
parted from Mr. Peary and Asti-jp at
Humboldt Glacier; whence the latter
continued on their way north. By this
time many Esquimaux had pitched
their tents around Red Cliff, and the
settlement had the appearance nf a
flourishing village. Durjng the summer
various hunting and exploring trips
were made, and on July IT I pit-died my
tent at the side of MoCormiclf's bay, expecting to remain there until the return of Mr. Peary.
Although the angakoks of the tribe
had told me that they had been informed during their seanee that Peary
would never return, at five o'clock on
the morning of July 24 I heard a peculiar noise outside of my tent, and on
calling out in Esquimau: "Who is
there?" was answered that a ship had
come, and a black head was thrust into
the tent and a bundle of letters handed
me.
The Kite had come and my mail had
been sent me. The following day I
was visited by Prof. Ileilprin, and the
day following I returned to Red Cliff.
On August 4 I again went to the head
of the bay, this time on the Kite, anil
on August 5 Prof. Ileilprin anil a party-
left to make a reconimissunci' of the inland ice, and at three o'clock on the
morning of August 0, while lying in my
bunk, 1 heard shouts from the returning party, and in a few minutes a quick,
firm step on the deck, which I recognized as my husband's.
The next instant he was before me.
I then felt God had, indeed, been good
to me. Good news from home and
Mr. Peary returned in health and safety,
after an absence of ninety-three days,
during which time he traveled over
thirteen hundred miles over this inland
ice. So far everything had gone as we
had hoped.
While we were packing all our belongings on the Kite Mr. Verhoeff went
on a two days' geological trip to a
neighboring settlement. Failing to return at the end of this time, the party
started after him, but to their horror
found no trace of him. For six days
the entire Peary party except Matt and
myself, Prof." Heilprin's whole party,
the crew of the Kite an-i nine Esquimaux all joined in, the search. On the
sixth day they found some minerals
placed by Verhoeff on a rock and traces
of hiB footsteps to a large and wickedr
looking glacier, and here all signs of
him were lost io spite of the whole party
quartering the glacier in every direction. No sign of the missing man was
found and they were forced to believe
that he had met his fate in one of the
numerous crevasses. The sad accident
is the only shadow in aU tbe varied experience of our party.     ��*���'���

A   MONTE   CARLO  INCIDENT.
a Stake
Utilized His   Revolver  to   Make
Instead of a Corpse.
"At Monte Carlo a few daysago I was
witness of the following peculiar incident," writes a correspondent of the
Chicago Herald. "I was seated at a
table in the cafe of the Paris hotel,
which adjoins the Casino, with a group
of tourists, when a haggard and disheveled Frenchman entered hurriedly,
called for a glass of absinthe, and, seating himself, proceeded to write vigorously on a sheet of note paper in fror:t
of him. My attention was attracted
by his appearance and evident nervousness, and my interest was deepened
when I saw him take from his pocket :i
gplil-plated revolver. He examined tin*
weapon very carefully, as thoui'h ho
contemplated using it, and wanted to
see that it was in proper order, then
hastily put it back in hia pocket and resumed his writing!
"lly this time the attention of the
whole group had been attracted to the
man, especially as they saw him remove tho revolver from his pocket anil
toy with it nervously. A stout, florid
Englishman sat near me. He leaned
over and whispered to me: 'My deah
fellah, the chap means to do away with
himself, I take it.' Then, before I
could reply, he quickly turned to the
Frenchman and said: 'You wish to
sell that weapon, sir?'
"The Frenchman drew back in astonishment. He gazed in amazement at
the Englishman and hesitated as if he
had been insulted. Then there apparently ensued a revulsion of feeling, for
a smile overspread his haggard face as
he exclaimed, with a shrug of the
shoulders',   Tf you wish, sir.'
"He placed the revolver mechanically
upon the table and picked up the gold
pieces laid down by the Englishman.
Then he drank his absinthe with seeming satisfaction. He brightened up.
His entire manner underwent a change.
A few minutes later he walked leisurely out of the cafe and we saw him
again enter the Casino. The Englishman and myself concluded to follow
him. We were surprised to find on entering that luck was evidently with
him, for a small pile of gold and silver
lay before him on the roulette table.
We learned later from one of the attendants that he had won twelve hundred francs."
THE   LITTLE  CORPORAL.     -
A Cross or the l.ogi'.m or Honor Found In
.  m Curiosity Shop.
In a queer little Boston store, heaped
with all sorts of curiosities, a Herald
man a day or two ago discovered among
the old pewter mugs and time-stained
prints a heap of medals from the scattered collection of some enthusiast.
There were several bearing the head of
her most gracious Britannic majesty,
with different inscriptions upon the reverses. Upon one was a sphinx and the
words, "Egypt, 1885." Auother had
been the reward of some poor fellow
who endured the hardships of the
trenches before Sebastopol when the
allies held the Russian bear in check
during that terrible winter. A Turkish
medal referring to the same campaign
was also among the lot.
But the most interesting of all, and,
of course, most valuable, was a cross of
the legion of honor of the great Napoleon. These are very rare, although
those distributed by the head of the
third empire with such a lavish hand
are rather common. But the one in
hand, hanging from the worn crimson
ribbon, had been presented to some
brave or learned man by the great leader himself. The white enamel had been
slightly chipped from the ends of the
five-pointed cross, but the jewel was remarkably lyell preserved. The center
was of gold and bore the head of the
emperor, with a green wreath of oak
and laurel surrounding the medallion.
On the reverse and corresponding to the
latter were the tricolors, crossed with
the words: "Honneur et Hatrie," encircling them. So rare are these crosses
that it is thought that the one now in
Boston is the sole specimen in this
country. There are several collectors
in that city who prize such treasures, so
it will probably remain there in some
private cabinet.

EMPEROR WILLIAM   AND PRINCE
BISMaRCK.
All Germany seems to be delighted at the
reconciliation of the Emperor William and
Prince Bismark. The prince is to visit
Berlin to-day, and will be received by the
Emperor with distinguifhed honor. The
reconciliation is said to be mainly the work
of the emperor himself. Prince Bismarck is
expected to reach Berlin by 11 o'clock a.m.,
and will be met at the railway station by
the emperor. It is not yet known what h*s
plans ore. He may remain in Berlin for a
time, and it. is possible that he may return
home again in the evening, on the plea that
the state of his health will not permit him
to take part in the proposed festivities with
which the emperor intends to signalize hiB
visit. It is hope**!, however, that he will
remain. If he leaves again in the afternoon
the conclusion to which the public cannot
help oomiag will be that there is not much
in the alleged reconciliation. I: is not probable that Prince Bismarok will be again invited to take office The emperor, it is
said, means to s'and by Chancellor Caprivi
but if the reconciliation is genuine Prince
Bismarck may ugiin exercise much in-
flaence over the emperor's councils.
His advice in that case would
of oourse be sought, and *s Prince
Bismarck is known to favor a* peace
policy with Russia, the reconciliation may
have important political effects. It ia to be
hoped so, and that the prince's influence in
his old age will tend to the preservation of
peace in Europe, just as in former times it
is said to have had a directly contrary
effect.
000 worth yearly, and iosue notes under ��1
against the full amount of the deposit of
silver coinage; India to resume free coinage
of siver, the p. ice to be fixed at 4d. an
ounce above the Indian mpee price. ThiB
is to be the price, and to be altered only at
the begining each year. If the average
London price of silver should fall at any time
ten per cent, below the convention price
fixed, as Btated above, the members of the
union are to have the option lo withdraw
and disolve the union. It is much to be
desired that an international conference on
the silver question should meet, and that a
plan should be devised on this or Borne
other basis for the remouitization of Bilver.
Unless thiB is done India will soon drift into
bankruptcy. The consideration may perhaps induce the British Government, in
whose hands the matter mainly is, to concur with tho other nations in calling a conference, to consider the whole question, and
remonitize silver if it can be done.

tions for works of development largely exceed either its quota of population, or its
coutribution towards the revenue, as a consideration of the Public Accnuut tor the last
fiscal year ahundautty shows. For instance,
the grant for roads, streets and bridges
upou the mainland waB $15!),500, an,i upon
Vancouver island was ��50,000. For buildings and schoolB, the mainland grant, was
{81,300, and upon Vancouver island $16,-
1)00. For surveys, the mainland estimate
was $48,000 and the island $���_�� 000. Upon
educatiou, the mainland grant waB$101,020,
and upon Vancouver island w,is $73,220.
Upon hospitals and asylums, the in .inland
grant was ��41,550, and the island SIB,300���
showing total grants under these heads,
upon the mainland, *J4.'I'2,270, and upou
Vancouver island, *Sl(i4,420.
"Taking the census returns of 98,173, as
the entile population of lhe Proviuce, the
total appropr iations, under the above headings, for mainland and island ($596,090), if
equally apportioned on the per capita basis,
would give S6.08 per head, which, according
to the distribution of population as between '
the mainland and island (mainland, 01,406-
island, 36,767) would entitle the mainland
to ��373,348 and the isl.nd to ��223,342, |
instead of the existing division of ��432,270
upon the mainlaud and ��164 420 upon the
ibland. But if the expenditures are to be
divided according to the population, ot her !
rhau Indians and Chinese, (Indians especial- j
ly, and Chinese, contribute but little to- j
wards provincial revenue), the advantage
given to the mainland is made still more
apparent. The last amended census returns |
gives 37,293 as the mainland whits population, and 27,997 as the islaud white population. This would give, out of the total
appropriation of $696,690, a per capita allowance of ��9.14, or ��.'-140,858 to the mainland and ��255,832 to the island, and assuming with the petition that the people of the
mainland now coniribut two-t lrds of the
revenue, it is shown that the islandtihy no
means receives one-third of the appropriations granted by the legislature for works of
development.

A LONDON despatch of Mouday's date says
that the Scottish proust against the tm-
bargo on Canadian cattle is beiug pushed
forward without delay. The committee
appointed at a meetiug of Glasgow dealers
in Canadian cat le has arrived iu London to
interview ihe Board of Trade. They will
demand the removal of the embargo in the
spring, and are hopeful of success. The
object, of the .Scotch graziers is to get cheap
store cattle for fattening. A great many
cattle of that sort are brerl in Ireland, bnt
in spring they are nearly always dear, sometimes bringing as much at that season as
they do after beiug fattened for six mouths
on rich pasturage.

' A Weed That Kats Fish.
Commander Alfred Carpenter, writing
from Suakin, Red sea country, contrib-
ures the following remarkable instahce
of a plant preying upon one of the* ver-
tebrata. The instance noted was observed by him when surveying the I'ar-
aeel islands iu the south China sea: "As
I neared a pool cut oil by the tide from
the sea, I noticed among other submarine plants a very ordinary-looking
flesh-colored weed. Bending to inspect
it closer, I noticed numbers of small
fish lying helpless in its fronds, apparently with little or no life in them.
Putting* my hand down to pick one of
them up 1 found my lingers caught by
suckers on the weed, the fronds of which
had closed tightly upon them. The iish
had been caught in every conceivable
way���by the head, the tail, sides, etc.���
anil some of them had been held until
the skin was completely macerated.
Those of the fish that were still living
had evidently been caught at different
times, they appearing in all stages of
exhaustion. I regret being unable to
name either the plant or the fish, but
that the botani** cannibal really preyed
upon the finny denizens of the deep
there isn't the least doubt."
Thinnest and clearest of "clearsoups" are
now very much in order.
The introduction of grated pineapple into

Wellington Celebrates.
Wellington had its Caledonian ball list
night, and fitly celebrated tho birthday of
the immortal hard who was horn one hundred and thirty-six years ngo. The Grand
March was led off by Harvey
MacMillan und Miss Robertson at.
9 o'clock. About fifty couples participated in the program whioh was . n
excellent one. Many iff the ladies proseu'
wore very handsome dresses of a cosmopolitan rather than a local confection.
After a few dances, Mr, Alexander Sharp,
mine manager took the chair for an interim
concert. He opened with some very appropriate remarks referring to the universal
nature of the celebration.
Mr.   Hugh   Mitchell   song   "Robin's   a
Rovin' Boy," which was well received.    Mr.
Patterson sang another Scotch song and Mr.
Hugh Ross   recited   the   si irring  story  of *
"Tarn   O'Shanter."    Both   of   these efforts
were applauded   by   appreciative  auditors.
Two other songs which made favorable   im-!
pression were "Gie ta me a pipe o'wine" by
James   Black,   and    another    particularly
Scottish lay sung most effectively  by Mrs.
Thompson; after which Mr. Bell sang "Tire
Land where I was born," and Mr. Gardiner j
gave a humorous Scotch reading, both being ,
heartily   applauded?,    Mr.   Sham   bavins
made eome satisfactory conclusive remarks
"God Save the Queen" wai" sutg, and dancing resumed till lhe "wee Hirra' 'oors," when i

There is on deposit in the sub-treasury in New York city more than $3,000,-
000 representing outstanding money orders, and of this amount more than
$2,000,000 representing money orders
which are overdue, and which may never be presented for payment. Ten
years ago, says the Providence Journal,
in a spasm of virtue, congress appropriated the money to pay the salaries
of ten clerks, who should checkup the
books of the money order office and prepare a list of money orders which had
not been presented for payment. It
was estimated then that if this list was
prepared the owners of two-thirds of
this money should be traced and the
money could be restored to them. Today one solitary clerk sits in a little offioe on the top floor of the post office
department annex, checking up the unpaid money orders. He is working
now on the orders issued in 1871; at this
rate he would not catch up with his
work in twenty years, and by that time
most of the owners of the money will
be dead and their heirs or executors will
be hard to find.
It seems strange, under the precautionary system now used by the post
office department, that such an enormous amount of money should havo accumulated to the credit of unpaid
money orders, but the chief accumulation was under the original rules of the
office, which were much more conserva-
tive than those now in force.
If A sent a money order to B to-day
and the order was not presented for
payment tho postmaster examining the
letters of advice, received from other of- t
fices at the end of a month, and, find- j
ing this money order to havo been un-
paid at the end of the previous month, j
would notify B that there was a money ^^^^
order in his favor on file in the offioe, 'A ~I     UI^DDITA 0 V       i 0 fl \
sent to him by A.   If at tho end of an-   [QI    J? Jj Jj itU A 'If     lOtlf
other month the money order was still
unpaid   ho   would  notify   him   again.
And if at tho end of a third month the
money had not been claimed ho would
advise the postmaster, who would notify A that his money order in favor of
li had not been presented and ask him
to urge B to have it cashed.    It would
seem that these precautious ought to
insure the payment of money orders
within a  reasonable time,   yet  every
year hundreds of them remain unpaid
until they are invalid.
Men who go from the east to make
their fortunes in the new west frequently buy with their savings money orders
payable to themselves at New  York,
Philadelphia or some other eastern oity.
I'hey know that  the money  is secure,
because  the  money   order   cannot  be
.���ashed  by  anyone else  if it   is lost or
stolen, and because the money can   always be   bad  on   application  for  a
duplicate   by   the  original   purchaser.
There is no savings bank  more secure.
Even trustees have been known to invest, small trust funds In money orders.
Possibly a good proportion of tho two
million dolltw fund in the sub-treasury
is on deposit, and  the  original   money
orders will be found in the course of.
time in old stockings,  in  safe  deposit
boxes and in desks.    But a  great deal
of it represents money orders  lost and
forgotten.    "People  are  drowned with
money orders in their pockets; they get
drunk and  tear  them  up,"  said  Sixth
Auditor Coulter.    Besides a great many
people do not know that lost money
orders can be duplicated.   They think
that a lost money order, like  a  lost
bank note, is gone beyond redemption.
And many people  would not  take the
trouble to apply for a duplicate of an
order for a small sum.   Still some very
old money orders come in for duplication almost  every  week.    A  few  days
ago  throe  orders, dated  1811!), came in
for  duplication, and within   tho past
two weeks an order of the date 1800 has
been received.   All  these orders were
accompanied   by  formal   applications.
Nothing is known of their history.

THE LOVERS' STRATAGEM
(By Eric St. C. K. Koss.)
CHAPTER X.
"STANDING OS HUT IRON."
La'er on Mr Evuiyn teceived Mr. Graves
in one of the most elegant saloons to he
f mod in the wh'le metropolis. The furniture was unique, the pictures rare and
worth a fortune, aud the small side-tables,
as well as every available corner, were tilled
with vases, statues, handsome writing materials, albums and expensive engravings.
"Why, you don't mean to say you have
borrowed money of Sir John Vesey?" asked
Graves.
"Yes, ��500, observe how I will thank
him for it," returned Evelyn, "observe how
delighled ho will be to think ��500 was really
of service lo me."
"You hive grown so mysterious," oried
Mr. Graves, "that I know no more what
you would be at than the French Minister;
but, by the way, you've withdrawn your
money from Flash & Brisk?"
"No," was the reply.
"No; tben " but he did not finish the
sentence, for Sir John Vesey, Lady Franklin and Georgina entered. Lady Franklin
was immediately joined by Mr, Graves, who
eat down beside her, while Georgina listened
to her father and Evelyn.
"You got the cheque for ��500 safely?"
said Sir John.    "Too happy to "
"My brst thanks, my warmest gratitude!"
orie.t Evelyn. "So kind in you!���so seasonable!��� that ��500 you cou't know the value
of ihat ��500���I sti.JI never forget your
nobleness of conduct. "
"Gratitude! Nobleness!" murmured Sir
John.    "I can't have been takeu in?"
"And in a moment of such distress!"
"Such distress!" cried the baronet, "He
pioks out the ugliest words in the whole
dictionary!"
"You don't know, my dear Sir John.
I've done with Smooth," Evelyn went ou.
"But I'm still a little orippled, and you
must do me auother favor. I've only as yet
paid the deposit of 10 per cent, for the
great Groginhole property. I am to pay
the rest this week���nay, I fear, to-morrow.
I've already sold out of the funds; the
money lies at the bankers, and of course I
can't touch it; for if I don't pay by a certain day, I forfeit the estate and the deposit."
"What's coming now, I wonder?" Sir John
asked himself.
Before he could have his curiosity satisfied a servant entered and announced Mr.
Stout, who immediately came forward and
joined Lady Franklin.
"Georgina's fortune," proceeded Evelyn,
"is ��10,000. I always meant, my dear
Sir John, to present you with that little
sum."
"Oh, Evelyn! your generosity is positively touching!" said Sir John, wiping hia
eyes.
"But the news of my losses has frightened
my tradesmen!" the future son-in-law went
on.    "I have so  many  heavy  debts at this
moment that -that���that .    But  I  see
Georgina is listening, and I'll say what I
have to say to her.'
"No, no���no, no," cried Sir John. "Girli
don't understand business."
"The very reason I speak to her," said
Evelyn. "This isan affair, uot of business,
but of feeling. Stout, show Sir John my
���Correggio."
Stout obediently took Sir John's arm and
pointed out the picture, but the baronet
was not to be satisfied in this way.
"Tne deuce take his Correggio. The man
is born to torment me!" he cried.
"My dear Georgina, whatever you may
hear said of me, I flat er myself that you
feel confidence in my honor," said Evelyn.
"Could you doubt it?" asked the girl.
"I confesi that I am embarrassed at this
moment," he proceeded. "I have been weak
enough to lose money at play; I promise
you never to gamble again as long as I live.
My affairs can be retrieved; but tor the tiitt
few years of our marriage it may be necessary to retrench."
"Retrench!" cried Georgina.
"To live, perhaps, altogether in th.
countiy," returned Evelyn.
"Aliogether* iii the  country I" sLe echoed.
'To confine ourselves to a modest competence," proceeded Lhe lover.
'Modest competence!" repeated the girl.
"I knew somothing horrid was coming!"
"And now, Georgina, you may have it iu
your power at this moment to save me from
much anxiety and humiliation," proceeded
Evelyn. "My money is looked up.���my
debts of honor muat be settled���you are of
age���your ��10,000 in your own hands "
"Oh! this ia terrible," cried Sir John.
-"I'm standing ou hot iron!" aud Mr. Stout
was liatening ton.
"If you  could   lend   it to   me  for a few
weeks���You hesitate!" said Alfred Evelyn.
"Can you give   me this   proof of  your oou-
i fidence?     Remember,   without   confidence,
what is wedlock?"
Sir John found an opportunity of whis-
Ipering to Georgina over her right shoulder,
f The word he muttered was "No," and the
[ next moment he was gazing again at the
I Correggio, and pointing at it with his glass,
[ he said���
"Yes, the picture may be fine."
"But you don't like thesubjeot,"returned
I.St out, poking Sir J.rhu in ihe ribs, for he
(also had heard Evelyn's request of Georgina.
"He m��y be only trying me," thought the
���astute damsel.    "Best leave it to pup i."
"Well " said Evelyn, WDitiug.
"You shall hear from me torn rrrow," she
teplicd. .And Mien she murmured���"Ah!
there's that dear Sir Frederick," as the
roung baronet appeared, and she joined him
at once.
Toke now announced���
"Lord Glossmore, Captain Dudley
Bmoot h."
And Evelyn not only saluted the new
fconurs, but treated the Captain with servile respect, with whom he afterwards retired into a oorner. Lady Franklin and Mr.
liraves now came forward.
'Ha! ha!" laughed Lady Franklin.    "To
I so disturbed yesterday, was it not droll."
"Never recur again to that humiliating
|opic," cried Mr. Graves, and   they  joined
Ir. Evelyn, with whom they had some con'
I'ersation.
"See how Evelyn fawns upon   Smooth!"
aid Glossmore to Mr. Stout.
"How mean in him!" cried Stoat.
['Smooth, a professional gambler, a fallow
vho lives by his wits! I would not know
|uch a man on any account!"
"So   Charles  Hopkins   is   dead,"    said
nooth to the peer; "you  waut Cipher   to
time in for Groginhole, eh?"
"What! oould you manage it?" asked the
leer. Then he added to himself, "Why, he
(lust, have won his whole fortune."
'Ce cher, Charlea!���anything to   oblige!"
ks Smooth's reply.
' Lady Franklin now left Mr.  Graves and
bossed the room.
"It is not possible he can have lost Grogin
hole," proceeded Lord Glossmore.
"Groginhole!" c ied S**ut. "What can
he have to do wiih Groginhole? Glossmore,
present me to Smooth."
"Whar I" exclaimed the peer, "the gambler���the fellow wh * lives by his wits?"
"Why, his wits -e m to ne an uncommonly productive c��pi a���?" s*id Stout.
"Wuy, Siout, you c* ange your opinions
Very quickly," rrii-rj Glcssmore.
"To be sure, what's lhe use of being a
great political character, if yu are not
al o.ieri to uhange ynur opnii in with the
times?" Mr. Stout went <*n.- "I'll introduce
mvsi-lf. How d'ye do. Captain Smooth?
We have met at the cub. I think���I am
charmed to make y> u** acquafntat.o *u private. I say, air, wh t do you 'hrnk of the
affaire of the na ion? Bui! very l��a*l!���n*>
enlightenment!���great lull off in the revenue?���uo knowledge of finance! There's
ouly one man who can save the country���
and that's P**pkin's!"
"Ie he in Parliament, Mr. S'"u*.?" asked
Captain Smoo h. "What's your Christian
name, by-the-bye?"
"Benjamin���N *;���constituencies are ao
ignorant, they don't understand his value,"
proceeded Mr. Stout. "He's no orator; iu
fact he HtRiniiir-r- a little, that is a great
deal���but devilish profound. Could not we
ensure him for Groginhole?"
"My dear Benjamin," said Dudley
Smooth, "it's a ihiug to be thought on."
"My frieuds," said Evelyn, advancing,
"Pray be seated. I wish to co, suit you.
This day twelvemonths I suoeeeried to an
immense income, and aa, by a happy coincidence, on the same day I ae urerl your
esteem, so now I wish to ��>k you if you
think I could have spent that, income in a
way more worthy your toed opinion."
"Impossible!" oried Glossmore. "Excellent taste���beautiful house!"
"Vewy good hors.'S," said Blount, Then
to Glossmore, he added���"Especially the
gwey oab!"
"Splendid pictures!" cried Lady Franklin.
"Aud a magnificent cook, ma'am!" added
Graves.
"It's my opinion, Alfred," said Smooth,
thrusting his hands in hia pocketa "aud I'm
a judge��� that you could not have spent
your money better!"
"Very true!" shouted the othera.
"Certainiy," aaid Georgina, craxingly.
"Don't retrench, my dear Alfred!"
"Retrenoh, nothing so plebeian?" murmured Glossmore.
"Plebeian, sir!" cried Stout. "Worse
than plebeian!���it is against all the rules of
public morality. Everyone knows, now a
days, that extravagence is a benefit to the
population���encourages art���employs labor
���and multiplies spinning jennies."
"You reassure me!" proceeded Evelyn.
"I own I did think that a man worthy of
friends so sincere might have done something better than feast���dress���drink���
play "
"Nonsense!���we like you the better for
it," cried tha peer. "I wish I had my ��600
back, though."
"And you are as much my friends now as
when you offered me ��10 for my old nurse,"
proceeded Alfred.
"A thousand times gmore so, my dear
boy!" said Sir John, with conviction.
Everybody approved of this, and Mr.
Sharp appeared at the door.
"Who's our new friend?" asked Captain
Smooth.
"Who?" cried Evelyn. "Why the very
man who first announced to me the wealth
which you allow I have spent so well. But
what'B the matter, Sharp?" he enquired, approaching his man of business. Mr. Sharp
only whispered in reply, but Mr. Evelyn
cried aloud���
"The Bank's broke," an announcement
that mtsde every one present start.
"Bank broke," shouted Sir John "What
bonk?"
TO BE CONTINUED.
The Highest Authority in America.
Printers Ink, the higheat newspaper authority iu America, speaks thus of The
Daily Teleoram:
"Did you ever hear of a place called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising city and
helieve that your local daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of The Daily
Telegram, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of his paper, and when
you obtain it compare it with your home
production. Go down and talk with the
publiaher about it afterwards, and ask him
why it is that he can't print as good a paper,
or obtain as good a local patronage, or have
his paper aa free from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
may be Ioarned from Nanaimo."
Notice.
I beg to notify the policy holders of the
Sun Life Assurance Company, of Montreal,
that I have severed my connection with
said company, and until further notice all

"Uncle Tom's Cabin'' at the Opera House
on Wednesday and Thursday evenings of
next week. It is expected ihat Sutton's
strong combination company will attract
crowded houses.
Smoke issuing from lhe smoke house close
in the rear of Messrs. Hirst's store gave the
impression thai a general conflagration was
about to start. On investigation the true
cause was discovered.
The cream colored horses that on Wednesday ran away at Northfield, spilling the
occupants of the sleigh, returned home yesterday, horses and sleigh being in every
respect sound and uninjured. It is believed
that the horses took fright at the sudden
appearance of a coon.
Watches that have been spoilt by inexperienced watchmakers, corrected by me.

Miss M. Fiddlok and a friend from Cedar
district, gut. upset yesterday out of their
sleigh by rounding the cnnier by the new
fire hall too suddenly. Neither of tho ladies
were hurt and the horse galloped into Dun-
lap's Btable, where it has been accustomed
to be stabled. On examination of the sleigh
it was found it had but lillie damage done
to it, though it had been turned over several
times.
Two gentlemen from Wellington, last
night had a disagreeable fall, being thrown
out of a buygy whilst passing the post-
office. The accident occurred through the
occupants of the rig turning sharply whilst
on the slope opposite the poBt-office. For
tunately no harm was doue except the
breaking of the harness and a little superficial damage to the buggy, the men and the
horse, escaping serious injury.
The Tacoma Hose Team has sent over to
Nanaimo for four men for the contest at the
Midwinter Fair in San Francisco. The
men who have been sent for are Fitzpatrick
first leader, B. Peck second leader, A, Hart
nozzleman, A. Cassell plugsman and coupler.
It is hoped that the Nanaimo contingent
will return with added laurels to their
already splendid record. It is expected
that arrangements will be made for their
going shortly.

A stranger called at the Provinoial jail

Police, he asked if he might leave two
trunks there as accommodation, The officer

that the si ranger wus going to put up at a

The stranger eventuully left, disgusted,with
his trunks, remarking with infinite sarcasm
in his tones, "The people of British
Columbia are very accommodating.
