Auousta, Maine, Nov. '-20.���Ex-Minister
Stevens has made publio ai answer to Commissioner Blount in regi'-rd to Hawaiian
affairs, in part as follows: "A deep senu of
ob.igation to my country and an American
colony, planted aa righteously and firmly on
the North Pacific ialea as our pilgrim fathers
established themselves on 'Plymouth Rook,
demand that I shall make in anawer to the
astounding representations and   untruths ol
Commissioner Blount's report on Hawaiian
affairs, a copy of which I first obtained with
difficulty on Saturday evening, November
25th. It is proper for me to prepare my
answer, briefly alluding V> the tact that
those familiar with international rules and
proceedings, who have had diplomatic experience, must be aatoniahed that Secretary
Gresham and bis commissioner should make
before the world such a persistent effort to
diacredit the recent actions of the department they now represent and which waa
once represented by Thomas Jefferson, William Marcey, William H. Seward and James
G. Blaine. Tbe general adoption of such a
policy by our department of foreign affairs,
oould not fail to weaken greatly our influence with foreign countries in any future
effort and serve to make the diplomatic service oontemptible in the eyes of the world.
Not only is the course of Gresham and
Blount extremely un-American in its form
and spirit but it is also in direct opposition to the civilizing and Christianizing influence that might be exerted on the Ha
waiian Islands; while it ia playing into Brit
ish handa, in direot opposition to the efforta
of the Amerioan Board of Missions and to
the American Government for more than
sixty years, in all of which period there has
not been a uniform, continuous and path
otic Amerioan policy. I also make a preliminary remark regaiding the repeatedly
asserted opinion of those wbo have assailed my official aotion, that I waa
prepared for, and stimulated to it
by the accomplished and Amerioan statesman who ocoupied the Department of State
during most of the perioti of' President Harrison's administration. It is sufficient to aay
that this expressed surmise is utterly with
out foundation. What I know and state on
this point accords with what ex-Secretary
Tracy haa evidently asserted in that regard
Still more may I properly add that lines of
official duty are still strictly followed by
myself, my commandant and colleague; and
the oourse of tbe Administration and of the
committee of Foreign Relations in the
oritical Hawaiian days of January and February last were exaotly on the lines marked
out by Secretary Marcey in 1854 and by
Secretary Bayard in his despatch to Minister Merrill July 12 h, 1887. Marcey's instructions and draft of treaty provided for annexation. W, Bayard's instructions of 1887
held the United States Minister and naval
commander at Honolulu responsible for the
protection of American life and property
and the preservation of public order. So
much as a necessary introduction to my consideration of Blount's report, not wishing to
be severe on a neophyte in diplomacy. With
little knowledge of the world's affairs out-
aide of his own country, aent on a very
peculiar errand amid currents and quicksands entirely unknown to him, he has
been partly the viotim of circumstances,
having been caught in the meshes and snarea
adroitly prepared for him by cunning advisers of the fallen queen, by the shrewd,
sharp, long experienced British diplomatic
agent, whose aim and hopes Blount has scoured so well and without the least suspicion that he was aiding ultra-British interests even more than he was helping the
Hawaiian monarch and the justly dethroned
Queen. It is clear enough from Blount's
manner on the day of his arrival at Honolulu, as well as by hia latter to the Department of State, written shortly after, that
he designed, at whatever cost, to repudiate
the views and aotiona of the recently terminated administration, and that in order
to do so he must impugn the action of Minister Stevens and of lhe commander of tho
US.S. Boston. A total atranger, it was
impossible for Mr. Blount to know how unfitting it was for him to take up his quarters
where he was certain to be surrounded by
Royalists, and where the supporters of the
provisional government would be reluctant
to go. The hotel was kept by one who
served as Kalakua's chamberlain, wbo waa
one of the principal pereons in a syndicate
that had cheated the Hawaiian government
out ot nearly $100,000, a transaction which
Miniater Merrill had officially reported to
Secretary Bayard, and thia man waa the
leading member of a firm that achieved its
principal business with England, that was
violently opposed to the Amerioan government in these island. He employed as his
aotive assistant in managing tbe hotel a
highly educated Englishman of disreputable
character, who had written ia the Hawaiian
British newspaper, under an anonymous
signature, articles abusive of the United
Statea, and grossly maligning our government's treatment of the Indians. This man
had a most unsavory record while residing
in the United States, and has been a bitter
assailant of American officials in Amerioan
newspaper! in the past service of the fallen
Queen. He has written whatever she and
her favorite, Wilson, have asked him to

en Amerioan rtsid- nt to an Amerioan
iinouiouer did not originate vtilu the provisional government nor did the provisional
government have anything whatever to do
with the proposed arrangements. A committee of three American citizens, born aod
eduoated in the United Statea, tbe superiors
of Mr. Blount in eduoation and manner,
men who had not taken part ia the revolutionary proceeding-i of the previous week,
went on beard the Rush, when that vessel
oame into the harbor, while I was courteously meeting Mr. and Mrs. Blouut on their
arrival. At the request of these American
geutlemen I introduced them to Mr. Blount.
They asked me to state the reasons why it
would be pleasant to him and better for all
ooncerned not to go to the Royal hotnl, but
to take the residence on neutral grounds,
where he would be mastor of his own surroundings. As delicately as I could do so, I
stated the offer of the committee of his
countrymen, pointing out to him that by
aocepling their proposition he would be near
the archives of the Legation, which he could
conveniently peruse, and which I would be
pleased at onoe to place at his disposal.
Brusquely, not to aay in8ultiukly,he refused
the courteously and honestly intended offer
of his countrymen and at once placed him
aelf amid Royalists and ultra���British surroundings, the British Legion being near
this Royalist Hotel, where the British
Minister soon took up his residenoe. The
effort in his report to cast an imputation on the provisional government
and myself aa to the offer of
the Amerioan house to an Americon commiasioner will be estimated at its true value
by the Amerioan publio. Commissioner
Blount's manner toward me in the following
weeks I would not allude to here were it not
absolutely necessary to do ao. It is well
known to all who have knowledge of diplomatic rules aud customs that, when a new
diplomatic agent arrives at the capital to
whose Government he ia accredited, his
predecessor and the occupant of the Legation should receive him en rteously, proffer
his servioes to his success,;.', inform him of
the existing atate of affairs, and, aa aoon as
convenient, give him access to the Legation
arohives. This I did promptly, and had be
availed himself of the kind offer of his
countrymen as to residence, he oould have
occupied the room at tbe Legation containing the official records, whioh 1 waa ready
to offer him. Ho coldly repel let i my kindly
intended offers, and did not allow me to
ahow to him the customary form of intro
duction to the foreign diplomatio ifficala
and to the ohief publio men of Honolulu.
How muoh of hia aingular course in theae
regards was due to want of knowledge, and
how muoh to his already nurtured purpose
to make out a case against the United States
Minister, the naval commander and the
provisional government, the American publio may judge.
"All insinuations and implications in
Blount's report that I waB averse to his access to the Legation recorda, is a shameless
perversion of facts. To show the character
of the men within whose environments he so
quickly placedhimself, Itook him the printed
despatches of Minister Merrill to Secretary
Bayard, the printed records of the recently
adjourned legislature, containing the recorded votes aa to the recent ch anges of Ministers, and the official copy of the lottery
charter, all evidence of the most decisive
value. He had really not oome to Honolulu for any other purpose than to convict
Harrison's administration and the Senate
foreign affairs' committee of hasty and ill
advised action in January aud February
last. His manner while allowing me to
leave these important documents in his
room, showed that he cared not to receive
them and the general drift of his report indicates that he did not even read them.
But it is well to be more specific in meeting
our opponent's recklessly partisan and ex
parte statements, and arguments.
Under the date of April 31st, he says he
disapproved of the request of the Provisional Government, that the American forces be
landed for drill. I here affirm that the
Provisional Government never made auch a
request. The Provisional Government
followed the exact course followed
under the monarchy. Whenever the naval
commander desired to drill his men on shoro
in aocordance with naval
signified to the United States Minister, who
made the request to the Hawaiian Government through the Minister of Foreign Affairs. To my knowledge, at the period of
which Blount speaks, the Provisional Government preferred that the Amerioan soldiers and marines should not land for drill
because of the possibility of ill feeling between them and men of other naval vessels
then in the harbor, but they granted these
requests only aa a friendly and customary
courtesy. What Blount says about the
Japanese man-of-war is equally ex parte, absurd and egotistic. Not long after the
Provisional Government had been established, prior to Blount's arrival, I received positive information both from the Japanese
Minister and from the Hawaiian Minister of
Foreign Affairs, of the renewal of the demand of the right of suffrage of the Japanese residents, and there was known to be
ferment, if not an organized movement,
among some of the Japanese in the same
direotion. It osrtainly was not strange that
in the peculiar oircumstances of the Hawaiian situation, thsrs should be
anxiety among the Americana and the
members of the Provisional Government
as to what might grow out of
this agitation about Japanese suffrage and
certain Japanese ambitions aa to the future
oontrol of the islands. The sudden appearance of a Japanese ironclad in Honolulu
harbor could not fail to create anxiety and
misunderstanding. It was in theae peouliar
circumstances that I felt it my imperative
duty to have repeated interviews with my
Japanese colleague. He did not attempt to
conoeal from me his wish that the suffrage
rights should be  granted to the Japanese
as his expreasion to me at home, th it to him
the Harriaon administration was indebted
for the strong Democratic support which
waa given it io the threatened war with
Chile, aud that Senator Morgan, now chairman of the Senate committee of foreign
affairs could not aid much in the same direotion aod is not a level headed man."
Mr. Stevens denounces Blount's statements that two leading mem hers of the committee of safety, Messrs. Thurston and
Smith, growing uneasy as to the safety of
their persons, went to Stevens to know if he
would protect them in the ecem of their arrest by the authorities, to which he gave his
"Blount," so he says, "squarely asserts
that I promised to aid the committee of
safety by force. This is emphatically and
categorically untrue. In reply to rival
parties at different times, whether the rep-
resemativds of the Queen or her opponents,
my answer waa always the same, that the
force would not land until danger should be
plainly imminent, and then only to protect
American life and property and to no one
did I ever hint I could, or would recognize
any but dt facto government, whether monarchical or republican, and as I said in my
letter to Secretary Gresham, I here re-affirm
that the loyalists and their opponents had
equal access to the Legation and to
its official head. The best answer
to the baseless charge that I promised
to use force against the Queen,
is the order of Commandant Wiltse to his
officers and his men, " to remain passive,"
and that no force waa used, though the
queen, through her ministers, strongly requested it hours befoie the provisional government was recognized by mo and all tbe
other diplomatio representatives in Honolulu.

Awful Soene of Suffering.
Rome, Nov. 29.���Despatches from Milan
announce that a terrible train wreck occurred on the railway between there and
Genoa last night. The train was smashed
to kindling and immediately caught tire.
Many periahed but the number is unknown.
Further details of the accident show that
troop* were despatched from Milan to aid it
possible! in the Work of rescue. It is expected ' that the deatha will exceed 30.
Moat of the killed were emigrants on their
way to the steamer thatwas to convey them
across the ocean. It will be impossible to
identify many of the dead, their bodies having been burned to a crisp. Half the train
was burned, but the postal wagon was
saved. A German travelling in the sleeping
car was caught and crushed under the
debria. He pitifully cried and appealed foa
help. A number of the uninjured went to
his rescue am) maoage 1 to ge. him out, but
he was so terribly injured tnai his life waa
despaired of. Doctors were sent to the
scene of the wreck from Milan and other
placea, and did much t j alleviate the sufferings of the injured. As soon as possible all
the injured were removed to the hospital at
Milan. To-day the hospital has been besieged by persous who had relatives or
friends on the train and who have not
heard from th.-m. It is thought that many
of the injured will die. Up to a late hour
this evening it haa been impossible to get a
full list of the dead and injured, but from
the meagre details received here, the accident is known to have been a very bad one.

near Winchester, a small town not far .from

ever said againat him before and when the
charge of assault was made, muoh surprise
was manifested. He was arrested, but before a preliminary hearing could be had, a

regulations, he so j from the constables and hurried him to a
held near the town. Here he was released
and the mob aet upon him with atones and
olubs. His pleadings for mercy were not
heeded and he was literally pounded to a
pulp; his body presenting a sickening sight
when the mob had completed ita brutal
work. Some of the friends of the dead man
went out into the field to-night and brought
the body into the city. There ia much indignation here at the action of those composing the mob and they will be prosecuted

To the Resolution. Passod by Labor
Union Delegates at th. Viotoria Meeting.
On Tuesday evening Hon. Theodore Davie
and Hon Jas. Baker, aa representatives of
the Provincial Executive, presented , to
Messrs. Geo. Gagen, of Vancouver, and
Thoa. Howell, of Victoria, who had been
appointed a sub-committee to receive it, the
answer of the Provincial Government to the
resolutions passed at the conference of labor
union delegates held in Victoria last Saturday. The meeting took place at the office
of Mr. A. B. Gray, Deputy Commissioner of
the Labor Bureau, who waB present.
The reply of the Executive, read by the
Premier, and a copy thereof being presented
to each of the delegates, was as follows:
"The Executive Council has taken into
consideration the following resolutions passed
by delegates from the greater number of
trades unions in the Province, wbo assembled at the Board of Trade rooms, Victoria,
on Saturday, the 25 h inst., in response to
an invitation from the Government, for the
purpose of affording information which
might be useful to the cause of labor in carrying out the provisions of 'An Act to provide for the establishment of a Bureau of
Labor Statistics and also of Councils of Conciliation and o[ Arbitration for the settlement of industrial disputes.'
" 1. That the delegates of organized labor
assembled strongly urge upon the Government the advisability of working the Department of Labor Statistics by servants from
the ranks of organized labor.
"2. That organized labor demand of the
Government the privilege of appointing officers for the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
" 3. That organized labor demand of the
Government the privilege of nominating men
to fill the offices in the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and that the Government make the
appointments from among the men so nominated.
'* 4. That organized labor give no information to the Department of Labor Statistics
unless such organizad labor is fully represented in such department.
" 5. That this meeting of delegates endorse the principle of compulsory arbitration, and that the Government be urged to
incorporate said principle in the Act at the
next session of the Legislature.
" 6. That the opinion of this meeting is
that alien labor should be prohibited from
all Government contracts let in the future.
" 7. That we ask the Government to insert a clause in all contracts let by them to
the effeot that all the trades rules in the locality in which contracts are let be observed.
' * These resolutions were presented to the
Government as an ultimatum on the part of
the trades unions, and the Executive Council replies to them as follows:
"The Act to provide for the establishment of a Bureau of Labor Statistics and
also of Councils of Conciliation and of Arbitration for the settlement of industrial disputes' was introduced by the Government,
in consequence of the strained relations between capital and labor and the disastrous
strikes which too often resulted therefrom,
and which were productive of the greatest
hardships and evils, both to employees, to
employers and to society at large. The
Government waa encouraged to introduce
such an Act by the experience which had
been obtained from the working of similar
Acta which have been enacted in many
other countries in the civilized world .'and
which in every case have been productive of
more cordial relations between employer
and employed, and which have met with
strenuous support both from organized and
unorganized labor as well as from all sections of Bociety.
"In order to carry out the provisions of
the aforesaid Act to the best advantage of
all persons concerned, the Government desired to place itself in direct communication
with organized as well aa unorganized labor,
and for that purpose sent Mr. Gray, the
deputy commissioner of labor statistics, to
the four cities to interview in the firat instance the representatives of various trades
unions with a view of obtaining information
and of arranging for a representative meeting at Victoria of delegates from the trades
unions in order to discuss the matter more
in detail.
"Mr. Gray was met with cordiality in
every city, and at first a strong disposition
was shown by the representatives of trades
unions to afford every information possible
and to assist in carrying out the obj eats of
the Aot.
" But for some unexplained reason a sudden change occurred, and the Labor Counoil
of Victoria refused to assist in giving statistics of labor unless a trades union man was
appointed on the staff of the Bureau.
"At the meeting of the delegates from
the trades unions with the Executive Council, on the 25th inst., ths latter intimated
to the former that a position on the staff of
the Bureau was vacant and that it was willing to fill the vacancy from the ranks of
labor. The Executive Council then retired
for an hour in order to ebable the delegates
to consult among themselvel. On the return of the Executive Counoil to the meeting, the aforesaid reaolutions were presented
to it.
"In reply to the first three resolutions:
Ths Government moat emphatically declines
to entertain them. It does so because they
are at variance with the firat principles of
justice. There are in the case four parties
concerned, organized labor, unorganized
labor, employers of labor and sooiety at
large, but those three resolutions demand
that the whole power shall be vested in one
of these four seotions of society. They
ignore the rights of all other citizens to au
adequate representation of their interests,
they scout the privileges of that large and
important element in soceity, unorganized
labor,and the demand is so despotic in its
inception that the Exeoutive Council oould
not for a moment entertain it.
" The fourth resolution statea:���'That organized labor give no information to the
Department of Labor Statistics unless auch
organized labor is fully represented in said
"The Exeoutive Council, strongly sympathizing with the Cause of labor, regrets that
the delegates from the Trades Unions
should have taken up a position so detrimental to the best interests of labor generally as the passing of the afore-mentioned
sslfish resolution.
"Resolution 5.���'That this meeting of
delegates endorse the principle of compulsory arbitration, and that the Government
be urged to incorporate said principle in
tbe Aot at the next session of the Legislature.'
"The Executive Council considers that
there is much to recommend in Resolution
5, and will give it due consideration.
"Resolution 6.���'That the opinion of this
meeting is tbat alien labor should be prohibited from all Government contraots let
In the future.'
"This subject had already occupied th,
serious attention of the Government and i
being carefully examined in all its bearings.
"Resolution 7: 'That we ask the Government to insert a clause in all contracts let
by them to the effect that all the trades
rules in the locality, in whioh oontracts are
let be observed.'
"Thia reaolution has already been negatived by the Legislature, and rightly ao, because it would be unjust that labor should
be shackled in its freedom for obtaining employment.
"The Executive Council was anxious, in
the first instance, to meet the delegates
from the trades unions���as representing an
important section of the workingmen���in a
friendly spirit, and in the hope that their
cordial co-operation in the interests of labor
might be obtained, but the Executive Council deeply regrets that the delegates should
have been so ill-advised aa to take up auoh a
dictatorial poaition, and to make Buch despotic demands, that it would be impossible
for this or any other Government to accede
to them without striking at the root of that
freedom which is, and should be, the pride
of all Anglo-Saxon speaking people."
Mr. Gagen, when the reply had been read,
aaid he wiBhed to repeat the objeotion already raised, that the resolutions should not
be made public without the arguments advanced in their behalf, as he did not think
that they would otherwise appear in the
proper light.
Hon. Mr. Davie replied that the resolutions apeak for themselves. He could not
think that the publication of the resolutions
now, together with the reply of the Exeoutive, would at all affect them.
Hon. Col. Baker considered that the publication of what was aaid by the delegates
at the time of handing in the reaolutions
would have put the resolutions in a worse
light, if anything.
Mr. Howell thought it was hardly fair
that the resolutions should be made publio
without the arguments.

History mentions numerous women
who have endeavored, with greater or
less success, to change the color of their
hair. Mary Queen of Scots had naturally
magnificently glojiy black hair, but after
the historic voyagt from Calai* overseas
to Scotland and Uer reception by the
sandy-haired Scotch, she sought to give
an auburn hue to her tresses���possibly,
says tho Argonaut, from an (Bathetic desire to be in harmony with her environment. Unhappy Marie Antoinette tlis-
covered a Frenchman who had compounded a powder having the quality of
giving to the hair the rich dark brown
characteristic of the madonnas painted
by many of the old masters. At on.
time, in the heyday of the Roman empire, the wealthiest and most> fashionable of the patrician dames ate certain
herbs and took a complicated course of
medical baths, with the object of lightening the shade of their abundant patrician
hair. A similar attempt is recorded of
Arabian beauties of the time of the
Caliph Omar.

The municipal fight has already com
menced in Vancouver, and as in past yeais
the aame old parties are again at war over
the civic positions to be contested for. The
progressive party have brought out Aid
B. A. Anderson for Mayor and the opposi
tion have selected Aid. H. Collins aa their
standard bearer. The fact that the editor
ot the News-Advertiser hit undertaken to
fight the battles of Aid. Collins ia suffieient
to ensure Mr. Anderson's election. Electors
of Vancouver haveforeome yeara past view
ed with suspicion any brand of political gooda
labeled "News-Advertiser" or "Cotton "
The famous Dupont letter will not soon be
forgotten in Vancouver municipal contests.
Our esteemed friend the Victoria Times
complains that we have abused its editor.
If we have done so we regret it very much,
However, we don't think such is the case.
The editor of the Times ia a gentleman for
whom we entertain the greatest respect and
we would be sorry indeed to
do anything that would injure
his feelingB. While recognizing fully hie
many excellent qualities, we have also noted
his failures. It is, we regret to aay; a common practice with the editor of the Times,
when forcibly reminded of his shortcomings,
to cry "foul," and shield himself behind the
plea of hai ah treatmeut.
As yet there has been no stir in municipal
politics in Nanaimo. No intimation has as
yet been given by the nine aldermen who
now represent the electors at the oivio
board whether they will again present themselves for election and so far aa we have
been able to learn no new candidates for
municipal tumors have been spoken of.
Up to the present the poultry Bhuw promises to be a great success. The committee in

are current regarding hia expulsion from a
club in Rome, three years ago. Ever ainoe
his marriage he haa squandered Mr. Mac-
kay's money without oounting it. Beaidea
his gambling, hia oonduct in general haa
been the suhject of comment for a long
time. The Princess limps, but ao .lightly
that it IB scarcely noticeable. She is pretty,
intelligent and affectionate. People who
know her intimately oredit her with every
virtue. It iB said that the Prince taunted
her about her limping. Everybody sympathizes with her. Her relatives are thought
to be responsible for tho applioation for an
act of separation, as she really loves tbe
Prince, in spite of everything, and would
have borne with him had not her mother
interfered. Beaidea the large suma
tbat the Prit oe constantly demanded, large bills addreaaed to the
princess were received. Theae bills were
for jewelry and other feminine adornments
and the princess was unable to doubt the
objeot of the articles that had been oharged
to her, but which she had never seen. She,
her brothers and her mother were accurately informed of the prince's aotions by pretended frienda.
Colonna's "princely" spirit was unable to
brook reproach, though, when driven to bay
with an absolutely empty purse to face hia
gambling debts, he several limes responded
to his wife's meek complaints with tears
and with promises of amendment, and received a check for a large Bum of money,
when, the money onoe in his possession, he
treated his promises like the proverbial pie
crust. The final scene ia aaid to have been
a violent one, in which Mra, Mackay, unsparing of her words, told the prinoe juao
what she thought of him aud his conduct.
The prince could make no defenoe, bo he
contented    himself    with    comparing   his
Srinoely origin with the origin of Mra.
laokay. In the meantime the princess,
who was presem. and heard her mother give
the prince a well deserved scoring, was giving vent to her feelings in tears.

make a display of minerals and agricultural
spi cimena at the San Francisco exhibition.
They will largely distribute literature of
whioh the officials of the Interior Department have a considerable quantity ready.
The Minister of Finance stated yesterday
that if the propoaed United Statea tariff
passes in its present shape the duties will
a' ill be higher, taken all round, than our
present Canadian tariff. Some ot the articles
on which the duty has been decreaaed would
serve to increase trade between the United

slated that the Canadian tariff revision
measure would be ready early in the sea-
aiou. The Ottawa lumbermen generally are

That Attempted Assassination.
Berlin, Nov. 29.���Caprivi received the
Emperor William at the new palace at
Potsdam today. The Emperor told the
facts in connection with the infernal machine sont to the chancellor, and said the
whole thing was the work of a madman.
He added that it was in no way identified
with Erance or with the package sent from

had been injured.
No One Knows Who Shall  Govern���"Lo
Figaro" on the Situation.
Paris, Nov. 29. ���The continuanoe of the
cabinet crisis is believed to be the result of
President Carnot's personal effort. The
suspicion grows hourly that he is trying to
prevent the creatiou of a strong moderate
Republican ministry, in order that he may
pose aB au iiuliapeusalile executive, and thus
secure a second term of the preaidency.
Either one of hia possible competitors at
next year's election, Caaimir Peireira, president of the Chamber, or Senator Constans,
could have formed a ministry thia week had
Carnot permitted. Caaimir Peireira, especially, waa sure of ready support from a
permanent working majority. His rival,
while not having equally good support, is
recognized still as "the strong man, Constans," and his statesmanlike ability as
premier would have assured to the president a capable cabinet, Dupuy, the laat
premier, also waa able to secure a ministry,
but ho was offended by Cirnot's willingness
to deal indiscriminately with men of every
faotion. In falling back to-night upon
M. Spuller, the president oovioualy
intends to convey to the preaent moderate
leadera the idea that no one of them is indispensable. Spuller has long been out of
competition for the foremost ministerial
place. Carnot reauscitates him politically, as
doubtless a man of good character, who
never has departed from tbe traditions ef
his teacher, Gambetta. It will be impossible, however, to group round such a man a
cabinet with much promise of long life.
Both ex-Minister Raynal and ex-Minister
Burdeuu, who are helpiug Spuller to get together a cabinet, are better men for the
cabinet than he. The newspapers, almost
wiliuut party distinction, express regret
that the situation is so unsatisfactory. In
his justice, M. Clemenceau, hitherto the
leader of radicals, gives this opinion. "The
country views with astounded eyes the situation. France waits upon Divine chanoe to
give her a government. Nobody knows
who will be master to-morrow. Some
audacious spirits declare for M. Carnot,
others for Casimir Peireira, others, mostly
fools, for the republic."
The Figaro says: " It is a pitiable assortment of photographs which have been called
upon to govern ub. Caaimir Peireira, Mer-
line, Challemel-Lacour, Bardoux, Marlen,
etc. We have requests, responses, objections, refusals, denials, and all come to the
one end, that nobody will enter the councils
of the Elyseee. Freuoh atateamen diadain
combinations which are ahifting every moment.." Leadera in other newspapers might
be quoted iudi finitely to illustrate the same
tendency of opinion on all aides. The opposition groups look on without knowing exactly how to act. The Progreasiats left
paaaed the order of the dav, the empty character of which shows sufficiently their lack
of a practical policy equal to the present
emergency. They aay: " We repeal all oom-
ptomise, and are resolved to pursue oar
political and sooial reforms in the name of
Democracy. We will tupport only tbat

Among the arrivals at the Hotel Wilaon
are Messrs. H. P. Dwight and Frederick
Nichola, of Toronto. Mr. Dwight ia vice-
president and- Mr. Nichola general manager
of the Canadian General Electrical Co., of
Peterborough, with head office at Toronto,
and are on a general inspection of their
western agenciea. While looking into the
interests of the company which they represent tney are alao combining pleaaure with
business, and are making many other enquiries aB to the resources and general commercial standing of the country, which any
business man of keen perceptions would
naturally enquire into. The Canadian Electrical Co. ia a very large conoern with a
capital of $1,500,000 and may be said to
have almost the entire business in electrical
supplies ot the Dominion of Canada. In
British Columbia, through their geueral
agent Mr. H. Pym of Vancouver, they do
by far the major part of the business, Aa a
specimen of the handiwork of the firm may
be mentioned the electrical locomotives at
present in use between No. 1 shaft and
Protection Island. The first two locomotives were bought through the Edison Company but supplied by Mr. Dwighi's Company, the third and laat locomotive waa
supplied by the Toronto firm direct. Mr.
Dwight and Mr. Nichola purpose spending
to-day in inspecting the various collieries
and to-morrow will take their departure by
train for Victoria.
Dumping Ballast.
A prominent ship's captain in conversation with a Telegram representative yesterday, complained of the practice of dumping ballaat from sailing vessels, chartered to
load lumber at Moodville and Vancouver,
in the north side of Burrard Inlet, between
Moodyville and the first narrows. He says
that bars are being formed in the neighborhood of tbe narrows by these cargoes of
ballast drifting out with the tide, and that
unless the praotioe is stopped by the authorities serious consequences will result.
In view of the fact that the C.P.B. Co. has
gone to great expense in hauling dirt to fill
in the trestle work about their wharves it
seems strange that ships are not allowed to
run alongside the wharves and dump their
ballast so as to till in the piled ground under
the freight sheds and wharves.
As some 20 Chinamen were going home
from No. 1 shaft last night they met some
young men on Haliburton street,who, thinking John was a fair object for their attack,
oommenced to fire snowballs, but John, instead of running away as these young men
anticipated, turned round and returned the
fire with interest, only instead of confining
the missiles to enow they concealed Btones
within the snow. John came off victorious
and one of the young men was seen limping
down the street with a particularly bad
knee joint and might have whistled "Mother
I've come home to die."
For the last three days there has been
very good skating at the Swamp, East
Wellington, which has been taken advantage
of by many people from Nanaimo. The
first day however, the ice was a little tender
in places and one young lady went through
into the water up to her neck. She was
pulled out by a young gentleman who was
near athandand taken home. The snow fallen
last night will not stop this healthy enjoyment, but it will not improve it.
A Temperance Worker Dead.
The Good Templar lpdges of the city will
learn with regret of the death of Mrs. A,
Brookman, R. W. G., Superintendent of ths
Juvenile Work of the Good Templars. The
deceased lady was a resident of Jefferson-
ville, Ind., where her funeral took place.
Her career was that of an earnest, aotive
and consistent worker in the cause which
she had espoused.
The Beautiful.
Snow lies thickly on the line of the E. k

Snow oommenced to fall yesterday about 2
p. m., and, according to weather prophets,
the storm is likely to last   for  the next 24

The Wild Cossacks of Russia and
Their Marvelous Feats.
After Centuries of Marauding; They Have
Become Disciplined Soldiers and
Have Few Superiors aa
A tribe of people known centuries
ago as the wild Kazaks of Dnieper and
the Don, freebooters, as the name implies in the Tartar tongue, has gradually been brought under rigid military
rule, so that at the present day the descendants of this restless, warfaring
race furnish the Russian empire with
one of the most valuable elements of
the national army. Their career as
freebooters came to an end under the
reign of Ivan IV., and since then they
have rendered excellent service as
scouts and skirmishers, and their good
offices in the protection of the frontiers
from the Caucasus to China are almost
They are light-armed soldiers, and,
according to a writer in the St. Louis
Post-Dispatch, above all, artists on the
horse. They ride their horses as easily
bareback without saddle or bridle as
with the usual equipments, and always
at the briskest trot or the wildest gallop. The "Djighitovka," as they call
their military code, which prescribes
the many hazardous exercises practiced by the Cossacks, is calculated to
fit the young cadets, the "Djighites,"
for the hardest and most perilous
service rendered by this branch of the
Russian army. When the cadet has
gone through the intricacies of thai
Djighitovka, at which time he has attained his twenty-first year, he has lost
all sense of difficulty or fear and enters
upon his active regimental service for
four years.
Among the most commonplace exercises which the code prescribes are hurdle racing on the part of the men armed
with sword aud gun; shooting in every
imaginable position, as turning backward in the saddle or using the horse as
a bulwark to fire from behind. The
latter exercise is particularly interesting. The Cossacks approach at a mad
gallop, come to a sudden stop and jump
from their horses, while the latter,
trained as carefully as the men, lie
down without a word of command and
protect their riders with their flankB.
The Djighitovka is divided into two
kinds of exercises, the arbitrary and
the voluntary. The. latter embraces a
line of feats of which the best professional circus rider need not be ashamed.
The men jump to the ground and back
on their horses as they gallop madly
along; they bend away down and lift
objects from the ground as they tear
over the open fields; they jump from
one horse to another while the latter
goes at full speed, or they ride along
standing upright in the saddle and
throwing the spear. In the latter case
the Cossack stands really in his stirrups, which have been previously
crossed back and forth to bring them on
a level with the saddle. Standing on
their heads while charging over an
open field is by no means an unusual
exercise. One shoulder pressed against
the saddle, the Cossack maintains his
equilibrium by clutching the stirrups
with both hands.
The ambulance service with the Cossack regiments is limited to mutual
help. Two mounted men on horses will
hold a wounded comrade between them
to remove him from the battle field.
Besides these wonderful feats of individual horsemanship the Cossacks execute exploits iu groups, showing a daring rider carrying a comrade on his
shoulders to fire at high range.
Cossack military training comprises
two chief branches, that of handling
a horse, and using either sword or gun
with equal facility and to tho greatest
disadvantage of the enemy. While the
regular code exercises are hazardous
enough, the voluntary ones are always
accompanied by great risk and danger,
and energy and dauntlessness are as
necessary elements as suppleness of
limb. Much depends also upon the
horses, and because men find animals
differ materially in point of natural
aptitude, the latter exercises are not
required generally but can be chosen at
will, although the hardest and most
vigorous cadets are encouraged very
liberally to go through them and personal rivalry has much to do with developing marvelously fearless Cossacks
for his majesty, the czar.
Accidents, which are bound to occur
now and then, do not diminish the
number of candidates for that course of
military training. A Russian proverb
says: "Those who cut wood must not
mind if the chips fly," and Oen. Zey-
dlitz's reply to his royal master has become proverbial among the Cossacks.
"How is it," asked the king, "that so
many men in your regiment break their
necks?" "Your majesty," answered
Zeydlitz, "if you desire it it shall be
stopped, but in that case I will not be
responsible for the conduct of the regiment when it faces the enemy."
Russian Peasants Who  Have No
Use for Soap and Water.
Some Revolting Customs of tbe Plague-
Strlcken   Country ���A Land Where
Cholera Finds a Breeding  Place.
The Growth of Man's Heard.
If a youth began to shave at the age
of seventeen years and continued to do
so until he was seventy, he would, assuming that his hair maintained the
average rate of growth, have removed
5 length of nine yards. But had the
hair been allowed to grow the result
would have been different to what
might be inferred. The growth from
the roots would have continued, but on
reaching a length of between eighteen
and tweDty-four inches the hair would
have become brittle, have split and
broken. The greatest length of beard
usual in our climate seldom exceeds
two feet. In hot climates, owing to
the moist state of the skin, the hair
grows much more rapidly and profusely than in cold or temperate climates.
In the east flowing beards from three
to four feet in length are not unusual.
Iu no part of Europe are public baths
so accessible to the lower order of people as in Russia, and nowhere are baths
in such general use.   Hut the attraction
i of the bath is not soap and water, but
the hot vapor  for which thu  Russian
i has such an affection. The bath itself
is in many eases a nest of loathsome
disease germs. The patronizers of these
institutions very often have no use
whatever for the washwoman. This is
true not only of tbe very poor. Of an
inmate of one of the gigantic apartment houses of St. Petersburg, who
was a man of property, the Novoe
Vremya casually remarked: "He never
has his linen washed. Whenever he
puts on a shirt he puts it on for good,
and he wears it until it drops in shreds
off his back."
As for sanitary preparation against
cholera, the New York Times says the
Russian peasants would look upon this
as a profane interference with providence. It is said that they explain the
outbreak of the cholera as the result of
machinations of English enemies, who
went visiting the famine districts last
year, and %vho, under the pretense of
distributing alms to the hungry, bribed
Russian physicians to work this spell
upon the people. The proper preventatives to use against cholera are the
prayers of priests and the counter
spells of lasses plowing in the dead of
the night. Sanitary precautions are
not legitimate. Another difficulty in
the way of sanitation is the expense
of it. It has been calculated by experts that the sanitation of a peasant's hut would cost seven rubles
(about three dollars and seventy-five
cents), and no Russian peasant would
think of sparing such a sum for the
purpose. The sanitation of the cities
and rivers would involve a greater outlay than was caused by the famine,
and within a year the work would
have to be done over again.
In describing the things which Russians eat and drink Mr. Lanin says that
it requires great caution to keep within
limits of decency of language and yet
give an adequate notion of the subject.
The foreign visitors to St. Petersburg
or Moscow who stroll down "Glutton's
Row" will see men and women, boys
and girls, devouring hidecis messes
which would be speedily destroyed by
the sanitary officers of other countries.
So much for the food of the poor. But
it is said that the manner of preparing
food in "first class" bakeries and butcher
shops would not bear relation in plain
English. Thus, it is said that in the
preparation of the exquisite jams by
the most renowned Russian eonfeetion-
t rs the seeds are separated from currants, gooseberries, etc., not by means
of a mechanical apparatus but by the
application of human lips, poor women
being employed to do the work. The
facts as to the preparation of the national drink (quass) are of the same sort.
Of course it is not necessary to drink
quass, but the water is said to be no
better. No city or hamlet in Russia has
drinking water pure enough to meet
the requirements of the most tolerant
sanitary engineer in more western
countries. In Baku, where the cholera
found favorable soil, a semi-official Russian journal says that "in many yards,
stand artificial ponds filled with water
carried thither in jars. In this water
the inhabitants are wont to perform
their daily ablutions, bathing every
day. They also use it to wash their
fruits and commodities, besides which
they drink it." In a scientific treatise
by a Dr. Kolokoloff on the waters of St.
Petersburg it is said that one of the rivers of the capital receives daily from
the city one-seventh of its own bulk in
An Adventure with a His* Mountain Lion
in New Mexico.
"I once had an adventure in New Mexico that made a terrific draft on my
nervous system," said Walter Phelps to
a St. Louis Globe-Democrat man. "I
had set out to walk from the station to
the ranch of an old friend, some four
miles out, and when I had covered about
half the distance :: gigantic mountain
lion came sidling up to me.
"I had not even :i pocketknife, and,
as the fiction grinders sny, my feelings
can better be Imn 'hied thau described.
When a few feet distant he stopped and
looked me over, and 1 thought he was
trj*ing to make up his mind what portion he preferred for breakfast. I had
heard muclvof the power of the human
eye, and I proceeded to put on the most
tragic frown and to stare at him fixedly. This so overcame him that he sat
down on his haunches and batted his
eyes lazily. I continued to stare and
frown, and he came slowly up to me,
rubbed his head against my trembling
knees and made a purring sound that
resembled a giant coffee mill in motion.
He was evidently not hungry.
"I walked slowly along in the direction of the ranch, and that powerful
cat continued to rub against my limbs
and purr. There was not a tree or
house for the entire distance, and the
brute stuck to me like a cockle burr to
a merino sheep. When I rapped at the
door he got down and made his toilet
by rubbing his big paws over his face.
When my friend opened the door I
found that I had inadvertently dropped
my voice along the road somewhere. I
could only point to my companion as I
hastily scrambled inside. 'My pet,'
said he; 'raised him from a kitten; harmless as a dove and sociable as a grass
The Methods Adopted by Mongolian Laundrymen.
John   Rune   Out   of   Fiffurea   When   He
Beachea the Hundred Mark and
Has to Reaort to Words
to Keep Coun
The Chinese laundryman is as a rule a
very uncommunicative individual and
does not make any great effort to enter
into more intimate relations with
strangers. However, the almond-eyed
celestial with whom a Brooklyn Eagle
man came in contact proved to be a
j little more free spoken than his countrymen generally are, possibly because
he had mastered the language better
than most Chinamen. He seemed ready
to answer any interrogation that might
be put to him, and in response to an inquiry willingly explained the system of
laundry checks in universal use among
Chinamen. To begin with, he illustrated how the checks were written
with a brush-like pen with India ink
on the red or green slips of paper.
Usually red paper is used for bundles of
collars and cuffs alone, and the green
checks for bundles of laundry composed
of different articles. The Chinese system of counting is similar to our own
���that is, there are nine figures, but
there is another character for ten which
resembles a cross. The other nine
figures are of curious formation, easily
recognizable as being Chinese characters. The 1, 2 and 3 are represented
by horizontal lines, the same as
Roman numerals, except that the latter are vertical. The rest are of peculiar formation impossible to describe.
Now comes the point of difference between the Arabic system of notation
and that of the disciples of Confucius.
Instead of using the first nine figures
combined with the figure 10 to express
numbers greater than 10, the Chinese
have different characters, which with
the cross (10) are equivalent to what
we call our "teens." Then the multiples of 10 are formed by the use of the
same characters as for the teens, but
the cross for 10 is placed to the right of
the other character. There still remain
all the other numbers beyond 20, except
the multiples of ten, to be provided for.
These are formed by combining the
character used for the multiple of 10 and
the character denoting the figure which,
if added to the multiple, will make the
desired number, except that, in combining the two, the cross denoting the
ly is omitted.
For example, in writing 40 a character resembling our X is placed to the
left of the cross (10), and to make 43
the X and three lines, vertical in this
ease, are used, omitting the cross used
in writing 40. Thus it will be seen that
they will have eighteen characters
while we have but ten, and our system
is not nearly so cumbersome. To recapitulate, they have the nine characters which are represented by our
own nine digits and the cross for 10,
which we form by combining the 0 and
the 1. There are eight more characters
used in forming all the rest of the numbers. The 2 and 3 when used in forming these numbers are written vertically: the 4 is an X, the 5 resembles an 8,
the 6 is like an L, the 7 the same with a
line under it, the 8 the same with two
lines under it and the 0 a combination
of two curved lines. The Chinese cannot count beyond 100, or 99, rather,
and so when the laundryman has exhausted all his numbers he is forced to
fall back on words. Therefore he
writes a word on the check twice, just
the same as the number is written
twice. The number is often written in
the center also, and the check torn in
two pieces right through these characters, and thus an additional safeguard is provided.
The word written on the check is
generally the name of some familiar
object or a motto. With each hundred
cheeks this, of course, has to be
ehauged. When the goods are put in
the wash a strip of cotton cloth is tied
to each one on which is written the
number and, if necessary, the additional word and number of articles which
have the same number. It will be seen
that the system is cumbrous, necessitating much work. The price of the
washing is marked on the part of the
check the laundryman keeps, so that he
can tell at a glance how much to
A Beverage of Which Frenchmen Are
Nald to Be Fond.
It appears, from a London paper, that
Frenchmen have been drinking orchid
tea for fifty years, and that the consumption of this expensive delicacy has
much increased of late. The orchid
from which the tea is made is a member of one of the handsomest and
most expensive families���the Angroe-
cum. It grows in the forests of Bourbon and Mauritius, and the scientific
know it as Angroecum fragrans. The
commercial virtue of the plant lies in
the strong perfume of its leaves. The
genus is allied to vanilla, and it is only
necessary "to touch the fresh leaves for
the fingers to remain impregnated with
the aroma," which remains after the
leaves have been dried. This process is
very simple, apparently. No heat is applied and no coloring matter.
The decoction is equally easy. You
just lay the leaves and stalks in cold
water, about one gramme to a teacup^���more or less, according to taste���
close the vessel tight and boil for ten
minutes. The tea may be sweetened,
aud milk and rum bring out the flavor
of the vanilla more strongly. It is as
good coM as hot, and may be wanned
up without deterioration. Material
enough for fifty cups is sold in Paris for
two francs fifty centimes. It ia called
faham, as in Mauritius.

Declared a Fabrication.
A gentleman at present residing in Victoria, who waa one of the crew of the bark
George Thompson when the alleged Tahiti**
princess came to Viotoria on her, says the
story given out by the princess and published by the papers of the Sound and this
Province is a fabrication from beginning to
end. When the George Thompson was leaving Tahiti, this gentleman says, the woman
who now claims to be a princess asked Capt.
Barneaon to bring her over. He at firat refused, but she bagged so pitifully, that he
finally consented. She had no fine
clothes or jewelry at that time. Capt.
Barneson took her to his home when he
reached Port Townsend, paying her $16 a
month and providing her with clothes.
Several times he wished to send her home,
but she always refused to go.
Frank Yorke, who was Capt. Barneson'a
partner in the atevedoring business, also
denies tbe story about the alleged Princess
being ill-treated. Mrs. Barneson, he says,
is not the woman to ill-treat her servants or
anybody else. The alleged Princess, he says,
at times was almost wild and would maltreat the children. She finally ran away
from Capt. Barneson's house.���Times.

John Mears, alias Ben Kennedy, alias
Jack Meyers, was removed from the Provincial goal at Westminster, on Monday to

murder of John O'Connor at Reed Island,
last June. Mears is a native of Allumette

years of age. Mears came to the coast
about 20 years ago, and has been engaged in
various pursuits, principally logcring and
mining. For several years he mined in the
Omineoa country. The story of bis long
run before the officers in pursuit of him
was only partly told by him in court.
When he started accross the mountains for
Bute Inlet, the dog which occasioned
the quarrel resulting in the murder of O'Connor was with him,
and time and again gave tongue
when it caught sight of a deer. Fearing the
dog would reveal his whereabouts, Mears
killed it���muoh against his will���on the
second day out. The third day Mears shot
a grouse with his revolver, cooked it, but
having been then three days without food,
and having no salt to season the bird, his
stomaoh refused to hold the food. The next
day he killed a deer, smoked some of the
flesh, and tried that, but could eat very
little. The following day, wheo completely
out of ammunition and nearly famished, he
decided to surrender and gave himself up to
the officers.
