Rome, Dec. 11.���A fatal riot, similar to
that which took place on Saturday at Par-
tenico, Sicily, is ieported from Giardinelli.
The rural population are bitterly opposed to
the new communal tax law on the sale of
milk and a riotous crowd vented their indignation against the communal oouncil for
imposing the tax. They made an attack
upon the building in which the council
meetings are held and it was necessary for
troops to intervene to restore order. The
soldiers fired into the mob and killed four
persons aud wounded several others. Tne
rioters then dispersed.
A later dispatch received to-night from
Giardinelli gives further details of the ex-
riot at Partenico, Sicily on Saturday. The
mob of peasants who had protested against
the milk tax wrecked the communal building and dragged on the ground two curl;
biciets who tried to summon military reinforcements. When the troops arrived they
found at the head of the mob several women,
who carried aloft portraits of the king and
queen and screamed "down with taxes!"
The officers in command of the troops appealed to the women to be quiet and called
upon the mob to disperse but no heed was
given to their words. Several shots were
fired by the rioters before the troops received orders to shoot, Afier t e firat volley
the mob retreated carrying away several
killed aud wounded. As soon as the troops
were withdrawn, the rioters gathered again,
entered the rooms of the sheriff and killed
him and his wife. The leaders out the he,ids
from both bodies, stuck them on poles and
carried them at the head of a mob through
the town. Of the persons killed during the
riots, four were shot dead by lhe soldiers
and two were wounded bo severely that they
died within an hour. The other two on the
death list were the sheriff and his wife,
Ten persons who were wounded aie still
alive; the majority of them will recover.
Rome, Dec. 11.���A serious riot, resulting
in the death of a peasant and the serious, if
not fatal, burning of a constable, occurred
yesterday at the town of Bitonto. The
people were celebrating a religious festival,
and at niiffit had a large quantity of fireworks that they intended to set off. The
gendarmerie and customs officers interfered
to prevent the fireworks display, on the
ground that it would be dangerous. The
people resented this action, and when the
officials persisted in their determination to
prevent the display, a riot ensued. The
gendarmes .were getting the worst of the
encounter, when they were ordered to fire
upou the mob. The ordtr was obeyed and
ap'usant was killed. This added to the
fury of the mob and the fighting was renewed. The gendarmes, apparently not
wishing to fire into the crowd again, slowly
retreated to the police station. This place
was stormed and captured. In the meantime
a constable named Curei fell into the hands of
the mob and somebody suggested that he be
made a torch of. This suggestion was
hailed with yells and cheers of delight. A
quantity of petroleum was procured and
poured over the unfortunate constable. A
match was then applied to his clothing, and
in an instant he was enveloped in a mass of
flames. Just at this moment a body of
gendarmes who had come from another
quarter of Ihe town madea rush with drawn
swords upon the mob, scattering them right
and left wiih blows from the keen edged
bludes. Coats were torn off and wrapped,
about Curiei, who by this time was unconscious, and the fire extinguished. He was
horribly burned, his face being almost un-
recor/nizahle. He was attended by physicians, who upon examining him, gave it
as their opinion that he had inhaled fire and
would in all likelihood die. The gendarmes
then turned thoir attention to the rio'ers
aud soon put, 1 hem to flight. Many of the
mob were wounded. Several of lhe rioters
were captured and locked up.
The Commons Express Sympathy.
London, Deo. 11. ���In the House of Commons to-day Mr. Frederick Dixon Dixin-Hurt-
land, Conservative member for the Uxbridge
division of Middlesex, asked whether, in view
of the outrage in the French Chamber of
Deputies, steps should be taken to search
people admitted into the galleries of the
House of Commons. Mr. Herbert Asquith,
the Home Secretary, said in reply that the
authorities of the House, together with the
polioc, wore satisfied that every proper precaution had been m��de to guard against an
outrage in the House of Commons.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Chancellor
of the Exohequer, gave notice of a motion
expressing sympathy with the French
Chamber of Deputies. The notice was greet
ed with cheers from all sides.
The Right Hon. A. J. Balfour, leader of
the opposition in the House said that he
ooncurred in the proposed motion.
Sir Edward Grey, Parliamentary secretary
of the Foreign Office, stated that the latest
advices from the Britioh Minister at Rio
Janeiro continued the statement that the
Brazilian admiral De Gama had joined the
insurgents. The report of the defeat of the
Government troops at Rio Grande do Sul
Anglo-American colonies of both cities had
large dealings with the firm. The Americans in Florence will   feel   the  failure with
special keenness, as   they  had   been iucon- j remains.    St. Moir was  about

L. J. St. Moir, who came here several
months ago from New York, suffering from
con sumption, committed suicide to-day by
shooting himaelf in the head. He left a
brief note to the coroner announcing his
death at his own hands and also a letter to
one of the fraternity charters of the state
universit) asking it to take charge of his
29   years of

for many years. There is some expectation
that Maquay k Hooker will arrange with
their creditors to resume business,

An Admiral's Opinion.
London, Dec. 11.���The Graphic lo-day
published an interview with Admiral Sir
G. T. P. Hornby, firBt principal aide de-
oamp to the Queen, which says: "England
could not hold the Mediterranean with her
present, fleet. Unless the British naval force
is stronger than the French, the British, in
the event of war, would be beaten, for the
French officers nnd seamen know their work
well, have as jjocd ships us tile British, and
furthermore have a better strategic position,
holding both sides of the Mediterranean.
As regards the armameat of the vessels, the
admiral says moderate size gunboats are the
best. '
News by the Monowai.
Auckland, New Zealand, Dec. 9.���The
steamer Monowai has arrived here. She
left Honolulu on November 24th. All was
quiet there. The news that President Cleveland intended to restore the queen caused
great excitement. It was discussed by excited knots of people on the streets, and was
generally condemned.
A rumor was published in the Honolulu
papers that the queen was not willing to accept restoration unless assured of the armed
support of the United Stales.
The Hawaiian Gazette, of November 24th,
says: "In the meantime, the monarchy is
uot restored, and will not be, unless by the
armed forces of the United States, whose
forces must then continue to support the ex-
queen. There may be small differences in
the ranks of the party of reform, but we are
to-day more united and determined on the
main issue than before. Let every reformer
put aside all minor things. As sure as there
is eternal justioe overruling the affairs of
men, so surely will the gioss outrage pro.
posed to be done Hawaii fail of its purpose."
James C. Peunie, an old pioneer and ex-
public administrator,who has been in charge
of the estate of the late Thomas H. Blythe,
died to-day, aged 71.
Banquetted Last Evening.
___P��X, Dec. 11.���Sir John Ttiompson
and Sir Charles Tupper are at the Halifax
hotel. Mr. Douglas Stewart, the private
secretary, accompanies them. This evening
they are to be banquetted by the Liberal
Conservatives. They leave for Ottawa on
Tuesday.
In Danger from La Grippe.
MoNTREAL.Dec. 11.���Mr. Henry Morgan,
head of the well known house of Henry
Morgan & Co., is lying seri, usly ill at his
residence at Mason, Bonnerville. He is suffering from an attack of the grippe. This
afternoon Mr. Morgan waB very low and bis
condition is considered critical.
Vigilance Committees Advocated.
Berlin, Dec. 11.���The tone of to-day's
editorial comment upon the explosion in the
French Chamber shows plainly the drift of
public sentiment toward special legislation
against anarchists. The Post says : "Anarchism has developed so greatly that the
common law no longer suffices to protect
the individual or society. No land or people
are longer safe. International repressive
measures are necessary. All adherents of
anarchistic iv'eas must be expelled and transported. The society of the nation will be
able to defend itself effectively only when
the whole civilized world thai; close up its
ranks in the face of t he enemy. Meantime
the formation of a citizens' protective league
might be tried." The Tageblatt remarks
that at laat the French Government seems
to have been aroused from its indifference
towards anarchism. The Vossische Zeitung
says : " The Government will now be justified in taking steps against, these wild
beasts that murder for the sake of murdering. The public must also help itself and
establish vigilance committees according to
American precedents."
The Latest from Rio Janeiro,
London, Dec. 11���The following despatch
from Rio Janeiro, under date of Dec. 5, via
Montevideo, appears in the Times: The
last few days have been quiet, with the exception of desultory artillery firing. The
government has received a telegram from
Desterro, stating that important events are
expected theie ahorily. President Peixoto

Montevideo, because of doubts iu regard to
liis loyalty. Gen. Smaiv, has sent to
Peixoto a telegram from ,-v.roucaha, December 1, that he might hear ii��wb from there
shortly. Admiral Gama, commanding the
insurgent vessels in Rio harbor, has issued a
manifesto to his fellow-countryman, Baying
he openly joinB the ranks of those fighting
to free the country from militarism and a
hybrid ailiance with the influence of sec-
tarism, aud will exert every effort to rescue
the country from the anarchy aud serfdom
to which her present rulers have brought
her and restore the government which in
a moment of national stupefaction and
surprise was overthrown Nov. 15*.h, 1S89
The manifesto closes ; " Brazilians, victory
is certain. Hasten it by bringing every moral
influence to help our cause. I call on all the
conservative classes of Brazil to oast off the
intolerable yoke of slavery imposed by the
militarism of 1889 I hope to fulfil my duty
as a Brazilian, though the end be death
Let others do the same. ��� Saldanha da
Gama."
The entire medical staff of the navy,
which has hitherto maintained a neutral
attitude, to-day joined Admiral Gama at
Enohadas Island.
Looks Like War.
Washington, Deo. 11.���The navy department has reoeived a cable despatch from Rio
Janeiro, that indicates preparation by President Peixoto for a big battle between his
forces and those of Admiral Mello. The
despatch iB from Captain Pickering, commanding the United States naval forces at
Rio, and in substance is as follows: "The
Brazilian Government has requested
foreign consuls to warn vessels to move
from their present anchorage, and has
drawn a line within which it will be dangerous to venture. This will prevent the
loading and unloading of cargoes.
The Latest From Ottawa.
Ottawa, Dec. 11.���The revenue for the
past five months was $15,600,527; expenditures, $11,636,820.

A New French Cable.
Toronto, Dec. 11.���The following special
cable appeared in  this  morning's  Empire:
London, Dec. 9.���1 am informed on the
best authority that a Lew submarine cable
is projected in France. It is said that the
F.ench minMers of marine and the chiefs of
the colonial department are forming themselves into a commission to elaborate a plan.
Just what is proposed ia not known, aud the
most absolute secrecy is imposed, as France
has no colonies whose commercial interests
are not fully served by existing cable lines.
It is inferred that the new project must involve some political ends It is considered
here that the scheme should be carefully
watched, and that it furnishes an additional
reason for energetically pushing lo completion the proposed British-Pacific cable.
The Bomb Thrower Arrested.
Paris, Dec. 11.���Among the versions told
of the examination of Vaillant, who threw
the bomb into the Chamber of Depu'ies on
Saturday, and was brought up in the Pre-
future of Police to-day is one to the effect
that be laughingly told the examining magistrate that he "would like to make a fricassee of those d d deputies " "What harm
have the deputies done you?" asked the
magistrate. Vaillant replied: "They have
done n i harm to mo personally, but they
are the sort of people it is well to get rid
of." "And you did the deed without thinking that you have a wife and child." "My
wife and daughter will do aa well without
as with me," Vaillant replied.
Vaillant has chosen M. Albert Cremieux
as his advocate. His trial will take place
during the first fortnight in January. Three
other men who have been arrested are kept
in cells. The police are seeking for two
men named Raynnl and Oouflix, alias
Gouenfe, friends of Vaillant, who worked in
the same place Vaillant did.
Known In Wllllaxnsport, Pa.
Williamsport, Pa., Deo. 11.���The Paris
bomb fiend, Auguste Vaillant, is believed to
be the French AnarchiBt who resided in this
city for several months last year, being employed at the Backus motor works as a galvanize- ��nd decorator. He boarded at
Ko'in'.- C i.lral Hotel under the name of the
Paris t'.eini and tallies with the description
of that man. He was accompanied by his
little daughter. He had been in Buenos
Ayres previous to coming to this city. He
spoke English, French and German fluently.
Kicking Over tho New Tariff.
Washington, Dec. 9.���Representatives
i f interests materially affected by the new
tariff bill have brought such pressure upon
their congressmen that sonin opposition may
he expected not only from Republicans, but
from certain of the Democratic majority as
well. Some of the Democrats assert openly
that they will oppose the bill it concessions
are not made to them, but, as a rule,
the dissatisfaction is more implied than
exptessed The wine growers of New York
state are asking the ways and means oommittee to put them on an equal footing with
the California manufacturers. With tbe
present law an exemption is made of spirits
which the Californians use to fortify their
wines. The New Yorkers ask that the discrimination he removed, and that the California producers either pay the tax or that
the exemption apply to the eastern nianu-
turers also.

FeU Ninety Feet.

wick, a Bixteen-year-old messenger in the
employ of the Telephone Company, attempted to jump out of the elevator on the
fifth floor of the company's building this
morning, and fell to the bottom of the
shaft, a diBtance of about ninety feet, and
was instantly killed.
The Arawa Overdue.
San Francisco, Dec. 11.���The Canadian-
Australian sleamer Arawa is now a day
overdue at Victoria from Honolulu, which
port she left on the 3rd inst. The Occidental
and Oriental Company's steamer Oceanic is
due from the Orient to-day via Honolulu,
from which port she was scheduled to sail
on the 4th inst., and will consequently
bring one chy later advices than the Arawa.
Lectures on Law.
Washington, Dec. 11.���It is learned here
that ex-president Harrison has nearly completed the lectures to be given in Stanford
University. He will leave for California
about the 1st of February. The subject of
the lectures will be international and constitutional law. After the lectures Harrison

War May be Declared.
New York, Dec. 11.���A cable from Panama says the war between Ecuador and
Peru over the boundary dispute is now
absolutely certain. Columbia is preparing to intervene, as Brazil cannot
now do bo. Chili and Bolivia instigate and
support Ecuador and war will probably be
declared during the week. The steamer
Mariposa was ordered to Guayalquitin in
spite of quarantine, the purpose being to
carry home Peruvian residents. The Peruvian   government   is   paying the   cost   of
The World's Fair Buildings.
Chicago, Dec. 8.���The World's Fair
buildings will soon pass from the possession
of the men who built them into the hands
of the South Park commissioners. The
matter was definitely arranged today by
the Wot Id's Fair directors agreeing to give
the park commissioners ��100,000 in addition
to the bond for $100,000 which the directors
forfeit by not removing the buildings within
the stipulated time. The matter of removing or preserving the buildings now rests
entirely with the park commissioners.
Guarding   Against   Anarchist  Outrages
New York, Dec. 11.���Supt. Byrnes, informed that local anarchists, fired by recent
bold deeds of their compatriots iu Spain
and France were meditating some deviltry,
has taken steps to thwart their plans. Some
notoriously desparale characters are being
shadowed in the hope of locating the place
where explosives are said to be stored. The
police refuse to speak on the subject, but it
is learned, nevertheless, that within the
next few hours every known anarchist in
the metropolis will be under police surveillance, and special guards and detectives
Btationed at all public buildings.
Dissension Among Engineers.
Philadelphia, Deo. 11.���General manager Voorhees, of the Lehigh Valley Railroad Co., in reference to the cut, in wages on
the Northern Buffalo Division Bays higher
wages were paid some engineers and tire-
men on other divisions before the strike,
which canned more or less dissension over
the entire system. The company now propose to equalize matters. It is proposed to
pay engineers on the northern division 25
centB per hour, which will give them $3 a
day, the same as has always been paid on
the road south of Wilkes. The pay of firemen will be also equalized, the former rate
on the northern division, which has been
$2.40, will, at the new rate of pay, be now
$2.10 per day, this change not to apply to
men who remaiued faithful during the
strike.        	
Coolie Smugglers on Trial.
Portland, Oregon, Dec. 11.���Tne trial
of William Dunbar, James Lotan, Nat Blum
and 24 others, lately indicted by the grand
jury for illegal landing of Chinese, will
begin In morrow at 10 a. m in the United
-States Distriot Court before Judge Bellinger.
A very large number of Bubpoenas for witnesses in these cases have been it-sued, and
the entire force of deputy marshals on duty
here are busily eognged in serving them today. Concerning the last indictment returned by the grand jury, in which the
names of W. L. Boise aud two others are included, in which identity has been the cause
of much speculation, the different officers of
the various departments who are around the
United Sates courts maintain an attitude of
very strict, reticence and positively refuse to
either admit or deny anything pertaining to
that iudictment.
Prospectivo   Trouble   on   the   Northern
Pacific.
TaCOMA, Dec. 8 ���There is some talk of
opposition among the switchmen and trainmen to the acceptance of the new schedule
of rates issued by the receivers of the Notth-
ern Pacific, and which will go into effect
January 1, but no definite action has been
taken. Superintendent Joe McCabe says,
of course, the reduction was not made as a
money-making move, hut in order that the
pay car might come around, as the receivers
can only meet expenses out of the receipts
of the road and the present, receipts do not
meet the pay roll. The new rateB for engineers in one instance provide for an increase of 25 cents per dny. Superintendent
McCabe says the mountain engineers were
heretofore paid $4.50 per day, and under
the new schedule will have $4.75 per day.
This is done on account of the greater care
and attention necessary in handling a locomotive in the mountains, and by increasing the pay it is expeoted that the best
men in the service will he secured for
the mountain diviaions. The new rates
for engineers who heretofore received $4
per day are: For eight-wheelers, $3.75;
moguls, $3.85; consolidated locomotives,
$4, no change being made for the latter
class.
St. Paul, Dec. 8.���A special to the
Pioneer Press from Fargo, N. D.. says:
Employes of the Northern Pacific are preparing for a monster meeting to-morrow
night, to protest against the reduot ions to
go into effect January 1. They will send a
oommittee to St. Paul to interview the
receivers and general officers. Their temper
is ugly and a strike seems almost inevitable,
as the men believe the peculiarities of the
service such that new men cannot successfully handle the trains, as the engineers
would not be accustomed to the alkali water
here, and further west the grades would
trouble those not acquainted with them.

Post-'ffice Inspector Stuart received from
Washington City to day a list of over 50

convicted in Judge Grossoup's court. These
companies have been pronounced by the assistant attorney for the post office depart
ment ss not entitled to the piivdeges of the
United States mail.
Inspectors are instructed to notify postmasters not to deliver registeted letters or
money orders to the concerns, and. it possible, lo secure evidence to pros< cute them
under the law forbidding lotteries and ths
act forbidding the use of the mails for swi i-
dling hurpoies. In the list of b'a k-listed
concerns are the U'ah t in iraiit.ee Investment Company of Seattle, four companies in

THE EUROPEAN SITUATION.
The Reforma of Rome, says a despatch of
the 5th instant, publishes a letter in which
it is staetd that 40,000 French troops are
en echelon on the Italian border between
Nice and Baroelonette, with a lars;e advanced force within a few yards of the frontier,
The French troops are beins; gradually advanced to the latter, and immense quantities
of war material have been prepared as if for
a sudden attack. The writer warns the
Italian Government of Urn seriousness of the
situation. France as in former times is
proving a disturbing neighbor, and the
situation is not improved by the fact that
she is in close alliance with Russia. It is
true the alliance is an unnatural one, but it
may last long enough for one campaign,
The situation in Europe is most critical, and
if a war begins between France and any of
her rivals it will probably spread to all the
great powers. Even "Great Britain may not
be able to remain neutral in the next war in
Europe. The recent trouble between England and France in Siam brought the two nations to the very verge of war. We think that
England's true policy ,would beat once to
join the triple alliance thereby making it so strong both by laud
and sea that France or Russia
would not dare to attack auy
member of it. Thus the peace of Europe
might be secured, but if Englai.d continues
to maintain a selfish policy of isolation,
leaving the triple alliance to stand or fall if
attacked by France and Russia, she may
find herself without an ally when her own
hour of trial comes; and this would surely
not be long deferred if France and Russia
should defeat Germany, Austria and Italy.
It would then certainly be England's turn
next, and her time would not be long delayed. And the three nations which now
court her alliance in vain would then laugh
to see her struggling with the two great
military powers, her special enemies, which
had overcome themselves. The better plan,
we think, would be to make that impossible.
It would doubtless cost England something
were she to join the triple alliance, but, she
must maintain a costly fieet and army iu
any case, and she might as well make her
own position secure. England can never
trust either France or Russia. Both are
her bitter enemies and rivals.
The latest uews to hand on this subject
states that Russia has declared it imperative
that the Kilia branch of the Danube be removed from the control of the Danube commission and be declared open to free navigation. This, of course, means that the
river shall be open to Rusaiau thips of war.
The London prtBS is considerably alarmed
at the demand now made by Russia. The
Globe asks if we are on the eve of a revival
of the state of things which brought on the
Crimean war. It saya that Russia's demand
that the Kilia mouth of lhe Danube be declared opeu is the most alarming and uyly
of the portents of trouble which have been
80 numerous of late. A correspondent, of
the Associated Press known to possess intimate relations with the highest officials of
Germany, and who has just returned lo
England after several months' residence in
that country, writes a most alarming report
regarding the situation in Europe. Russia,
he says, wants Constantinople, and is preparing to tako it. Before she can do
so, she inuHt fight Austria, That for her
might be an easy task, if Austria stood
alone. But to fight Austria means also to
fight Germany, and that is a harder matter.
Russia therefore regards Germany as her
real opponent. Hence her friendship for
France, whom ahe knows to be the bitter
enemy of Germany. That France is thirsting for war with her old antagouiatdoes not
admit of doubt. If Russia movea ahe oan
count on the co-operation of France to a
oertainty. The extravagant behavior of the
French people in welcoming the Russian
Bailors at Toulon and Paris a short timej
since ia proof of this. Russia, says the oor-
reapondeut, has now massed all the active
army weat of Moscow, and the great bulk of
it in Poland. She is persecuting tho German language and the Lutheran religion in
her Bailie provincea, and is fanning rather
than allaying the popular hatred of the
Rusaiana for the Germans, It looks indeed
aa if matters were fast coming to a crisis
between Russia and her neighbors to the
weat and aouthweat. The Czar knowa that
he muat settle acounta with Germany and
Austria firat   before he can   make  himself
maeter of Conatantinople and the Boaphorus.
That is the task he haa before him, and it is
not an easy one. Meantime England is
hardly less concerned than Germany and
Austria and the British Government knowsit.
The Westminster Gazette announces that five
new battle ships, a first-class cruiser, and
aeveral smaller vessels have been ordered to
augment the British navy. In Germany
the idea prevails, both in Government
circles and among business men, that tbe
next war will be largely devoted to pulling
chestnuts out of the fire for England. It is
not for England's interests or honor that
this idea should gain currency in Germany.
It is well for the Government to strengthen
the navy. But it would he better to join
the triple alliance at once, and so avoid the
reproach of selfishness. By doing so tho
British Government might secure the peace
of Europe, and give pause to the ambition
of Russia and the revenge of France.
A general election for the Local House
takes place in Prince Edward Island on
Wednesday.
The total purchase of silver by the United
States under the Shermun Act is estimated
by the Chicago Tribune to have been 16S,
674,6��S2 fine ounces, at an average price of
(12.24 cents au ounce. As the present value
of silver is 68 cents an ounce, it follows that
Uncle Sam's speculation in silver has resulted iu a net loss of about?41,000,000, not
a paying speculation surely,
The Anarchists are beginning to exceed
all bounds, and proper steps will have to be
taken by the various governments to keep
them under restraint. In Paris, France, on
Saturday last, a stranger, who had made his
way into the Chamber of Deputies while the
members were in Be8sion, flung a bomb,
which exploded, wounding Deputy Lemire,
it ia feared fatally, and seriously injuring
aix othera. The wretoh who would fling a
loaded bomb in a crowded chamber, careless
how many he killed or maimed, deserves to
be sent to the guillotine in short order.
Such a man is too wicked and dangerous to
be permitted to live any longer. Deputy
Lemire waB himself a Socialist, which, if not
an Anarchist, is popularly supposed to be
the next, thing to it. The British Government has offered a reward of ��100 for information that will leod to the discovery of
persons engaged in the illegal manufacture
of explosives. In Madrid on Saturday, a
house in that city supposed to be occupied
by a noted Anarchist was raided by the
police, and a number of important Anarchist
documents were discovered. Thomas Alot,
the alleged author of a recent dynamite outrage, was arrested. Alot confessed, and
other Anarchists were arrested. It is believed that the movementa of the Anarchist
gang throughout have been discovered.
Sir John Thompson and Sir Charles H.
Tupper addressed a public meeting at An-
tigonish on Thursday evening last. Sir C.
H. Tupper said the Government would
stand or fall by the National Policy, which
he claimed had secured prosperity to the
people and had conferred contentment. He
also claimed that Canada had won a glorious
victory over the United States at the Paria
arbitration.

The Matter Dropped.
Vancouver, Deo. 11.���[Special.]���Alderman Frankliu's proposal to dismiss the city

not get a seconder and the matter was
dropped.
IN CONCLAVE ASSEMBLED.
Regular Meeting  of  the City  Fathers
McKinnon Now Chief of Police.
The City Council met last evening, the
Mayor in the chair, and Aldermen Nightingale, Frame, Quennell, Hilbert, Dobson and
McKinnell being present. The minutes of
the previous meeting were read and confirmed.
An invitation waa rend inviting the
members of the council to be present at the
ball and supper given by the firemen on
Friday night.
Aid. Quennell and Aid. Nightingale
favored the motion. It was decided that all
who cou'd, would attend.
A letter was read from A. R. Heyland,
C. E., asking for an extension of two weeks
time to complete the re-survey of the city.
Moved by Aid. Dobson, seconded by Aid.
McKinnell that the extension be granted.
Carried.
It was requested that a rebate of the fees
for the burial of the late Henry Thompson
be granted aB his wife and children were iu
great need.    This was assented to.
Atteution wm called to a request from
Messrs. Simpson, G. Norris, Perkins, The
Telegram and others, to have a crosoing
made from the Free Prest block to The
Telegram building. Referred to Street
Committee.
A letter was read from 'Mr. Ross, asking
that the drain on Fry street be attended to.
Referred to Street Committee.
On motion the bills were referred to the
Finance Committee.
It was moved that a limit of service before exemption from taxes could be claimed
by firemen should be made, and the secretary of the fire departmeut should refund
all taxes paid.    The motion carried.
The road foreman's ri port was read and
filed.
The oity clerk mentioned that a horse had
been for ten days in the pound and that
nobody would buy it when it was put up at
public auction. It was known who originally
owned the horse, but he had raid that he
had sold it, but forgot to whom. There
waB now a bill of $8 againBt the horse.
Mayor Haslam said that if the pound
keeper was satisfied aB to whom the horBe
belonged, he could proceed against him.
The oity clerk said that the horse had belonged to J. Colliahaw in the firBt plaoe.
Some facetious suggestions were made,
and finally Mayor Haslam said that proced-
inga might be taken againBt the city if the
horse was killed whilst still iu the pound-
keeper's charge.
Aid. Quonnell remarked that the best way
to arrange the difficulty was to get someone
to buy thu horse for a dollar and then get it
Bhot.    This course was settled upon.
Moved by Aid. Dobson, seconded by Aid.

regulate the election of Mayor aud Aldermen for the ensuing year,    oarried.

A letter was read from the Attorney-General ratifying Mr. J. P. Plauta'a appointment as stipendiary magistrate.
Aid. Quennell considered that $1,000 a
year as salary was not too much.
Aid. McKinnell moved that the question

in the second ballot Gibbs two, CrosBan two,
and McKinnon three; and in the third ballot McKinnon four, Crossan two, and Gibbs

name down to the commissioners.
The Council then adjourned.

THE MASONIC ORDER.
A Conundrum Social.
There was a small attendance, but it was
a jolly crowd which assembled at Wallace
street Methodist church last evening to
anjoy the "conundium social." ThiB was a
novel entertainment for the majority, and
when the time came for refreshments much
amusement was furnished from tbe subjoined menu. The uninitiated oertainly
fared badly on their first orders, as, expect-
iug to receive some dainty tidbit, it was
somewhat of a shock to be served with
catsup for "elevated feline," or water for
"spring's offering." But the fare was good
and abundant, and all were satisfied. During the evening duetts were given by Messrs.
Maitland and Powers, a solo by Miss Dobeson, and a reading by Miss Mebius. The
following was the bill of fare:���Greased
staff, laborer's strength, Boston's overthrow,
bachelor's comfort, spring's offering, skipper's home, elevated feline, everybody's
friend, women's weapon, marble slab,
sailor's delight- three decker, Tanner's fad,
ivory manipulators, kisses.
It*Origin and Ear'J- Hlatory, According to
Various Accounts.
Some Masonic writers claim that the Ma-
-onio order was founded in Solomon's time,
���lenvinc; its origin from the "Dionysiae
fraternity" of architects and builders en-
(taKed in the construction of temples and
theaters, a band of whom worked upon the
temple. A commonly accepted origin is
found in the association of masons and
builders during the middle ages. These
associations had a regular government and
ranged from country to country wherever
they found churches to build. They enjoyed the special favor of the popes aud
were exempted from taxes and other burdens, from which comes the namo "Free-
Masons." Men of eminence, both kings and
prelates, joined the order, and the practical
feature finally fell into abeyance.
Some writers claim that Masonry had its
origin in 104B, being founded by an Englishman named Ash mole, from signs and
symbols borrowed from the Knights Templars and Rosicrucians. In 1666 Sir Christopher Wren was appointed grand master
of England, so that it must have had several lodges. In 1703 St. Paul's lodge of
London was the only oue or about tho only
ono iu England, and this lodge threw open
the doors to other professions. In 171?
there were four lodges, and these formed
the grand lodge. A* thus organized it wus
transplanted to the continent. The first
lodge of America is said to be that organized in Boston in 1733,

THE  PROPER  CAPER.
He Used a Razor.
Yesterday morning, John Lohamah, a
Finn, resident on the New Wellington town-
site, ��as brought bofore Messrs. J. P. Planta,
S. M. and M. Btte, J. P., oharged with
having stabbed a countryman, Herman
Weigus, with a razor, on the previous evening. Weigus deposed that between 0 and
10 o'clock ou Sunday night, two other Finns
who were drunk, were fighting in his cabin.
He tried to separate them. The defendant
oame in Buddenly with a razor in his hand,
and stabbed him in the back, and tried to
cut the other two men. Lohamah was
drunk. He left the cabin after he hed
stabbed the witness.
Herman Ardela, one of the men who were
quarrelling, gave confirmatory testimony.
Constable StephenBon detailed the arrest
of the prisoner and the finding of a razor on
him.
Tho prisoner, being convicted, was sentenced to six months' imprisonment with
hard labor; and fined in addition $100,
with, in default, a further term of six
months.
Trades and Labor Council.
At the regular meeting of the Trades aud
Labor Council on Sunday, it was decided,
that as the local unions would make up the
deficiency in the council's funds, the ball
decided upon at the last meeting would not
be given. The council received notice that
the third annual convention of the Pacific
Coast Council of Trades and Labor Federations would meet in Sacramento on Monday,
January 8th, 1894, and wire requested to
���end delegates. A communication was received from Mr. Arthur H. Dutton, secretary of the Victoria Trades and Labor
Council, setting forth resolutions passed at
the last meeting of the Victoria council,
which endorsed the action taken by the
labor delegates, as embodied in the resolutions passed at the late labor convention at
Victoria, and expressed* the opinion of the
council that "the answers of the Government re said resolutions were unfair, especially bo, in view of the fact that the Government made overture! leading us to believe that it was their intention to provide
an act that would be beneficial to the inter-
eots of labor, on the contrary that their
answers plainly prove that the Government
does not look upon the working class as one
worthy of consideration, and be it further
resolved that it is the opinion of this council that organized labor cannot expect anything beneficial from the present Government."

Lord Willmore said nothing*, but
Rimply lowering his eyes from her face,
turned and left her.
Slowly pacing towards the open window, he lingered without until tha
music ceased. A dread of the influences
about him gathered around his heart,
and he felt a strange anxiety to fly from
the spell of that song, the oppression of
those deepening shadows, the mystery of
whispering branches, and, above all, ths
peril of that unmasked loveliness keeping guard in the bower yonder over tne
silent witnesses of her sliame.
As soon as Willmore had entered the
house, Laura Kingdon, with her sister's
letters tightly clutched in both her
hands, left the arbor, and sped directly
to a side-door, by which she gained her
own room. There she hastily changed
her dinner-dress for a simple gown and
clnak. and threw into a travelling-bag
the articles she would require during a
short absence. To Lord Willmore she
hardly gave a thought. Her mmd was
absorbed by fears of her sister. Of Ralph
. Kestrel she no longer had any apprehension. The evidence in her hands went
far to show that he had been a neglectful rather than a too ardent lover. The
danger lay with Dorothy herself. Morbid
with loneliness, her reason distorted by
the constant perusal of cheap fiction,
that had produced in her a weedy growth
of sentimental fancy, there was every
probability of her taking some insane
and irretrievable leap in the dark. At
the best, the peace and joy of honest Ben
Dundas was grievously menaced, aud
the good work of preserving tho happiness of Dorothy and her husband eclipsed
in its importance and urgenoy all Laura's'
personal affairs.
She resolved to confide some part ot
her apprehensions to Muriel in explanation of her abrupt departure, and was
deliberating how she could approach her i
withoui. again encountering the guests,
when she heard the last of them de- j
part and Muriel herself enter the ad-
joining room and lock the door. Then i
came that passion of sobs, audible I
through the partition-wall, which arous-
ed in Laura a deep sympal hy and desire
to comfort her friend. Never before had
she known Muriel O'Connor to give way
to grief like this. What could have happened? Could it possibly be jealousy of
Laura nnd Kestrel? The thought wai
extravagant, but Laura, as a woman,
knew a woman's weaknesses, and she remembered the look upon Muriel's face
when Kestrel had been discovered surrendering Dorothy's letters. As we have
seen, Laura at once sought an interview
with her friend, but, being repulsed and
time pressing, she left the house without
a true understanding having been arrived at between them.
We have followed her on her journey
to her sister's home, and there we must
leave her now standing in the deserted
riverside street, gazing up in despair at
lhe darlc windows, ringing again and
again at the echoing bell, knocking over
and anon upou the door, that seemed j
closed, like the gate of a sepulchre,
against joy and peace and love for evermore.
The house was deserted.
CHAPTER X.
WILFUL MURDER I
When Dorothy Dundas alighted from
the train that had brought her from
Wapping, she stood for a moment gating anxiously about, as if sho had expected to find some one on the platform
waiting to receive her; but the train and
the passengers passed away, and she remained, almost alone.
"Not hero," she exclaimed with a
little gasp of distress. "Not here! Can
I have mistaken the station���or the
time?"
I    She retired into one of the dark alcoves
at the end of the platform,  where she
would be unobserved, and drew a letter
, from the bosom of her dress.
A sharply defined ray of moonlight
fell across one-third of the alcove, and
seating herself upon the bench placed
there for the convenience of wai ting passengers, she examined yet again the
words which were already carved so
deeply upon her brain and heart:
"Sweetest Dolly,���If you really
mean it this time, meet me at the Maryle-
bone Station on the down platform���the
westward end, where there areno lamps
���at 10.30 to-morrow night. I will try
to be there to meet your train, but, if you
don't see me, wait there out of sight until I come. Wire me if I am to expect
you. You doar little rascal I I knew
you would have to give in at last.���Your
loving Ralph."
"Yes, yes," she muttered, as she refolded the letter, "I am right. This is the
station���the down platform���the westward end of it; but the time?" She looked again: the 10 was Indistinct] what
sho hud mistaken for a naught might be
a 1.    Yes, it was 11.80 he had meant,
nnd she had over an hour to wait. "O
italph, my love," she murmured, "do
i ii it keep me long! How 1 suffer, and
now wicked lam in my love for you!
Your coming must atone for much, for
1 have known nothing but misery since
I first met you, What would Laura say
to me now?"
She crouched in the dark corner of tho
alcove, and scanned with tremulous impatience every person who came within
view. But the moments passed, train
arfer train rushed noisily into tbe station
and glided silently out of it, and still no
lover came; and Dorothy Dundas, worn
out with many a sleepless night, fell unknowingly into a deep slumber. But
meantime the truant lover was drawing
nearer to his sin. and that sin's nemesis
hovered about him like tbe shadow of a
sword.
Chuckling with satisfaction at having
diverted suspicion from himself by the
surrender of letters that tended to exonerate him by their reproaches for coldness and neglect, he mado his way, on
leaving Muriel's house, directly to the
nearest tavern, where, after ' further
potations, he endeavoured to change
Muriel's cheque. But the credit of the
house at the corner was not sufficiently
established to permit of this accommodation, and after further efforts in
the neighbourhood he set off in high
dudgeon for the rendezvous with Dorothy
Dundas. Tne alcohol with which he
had muddled his wits inflamed him very
unreasonably against his late benefactress. What was the use to him of this
cursed piece of paper? He wanted
money, and she had given him a cheque
which no one would cash.
She was a swindler, this Muriel O'Connor.    It   was  piaiu  what  people
thought of her.   And she supposed she
con lil fool him, did she,   with  her rubbishing cheques?   Not if his name was
I Rulph Kestrel'   He'd  blow the whole
i house of cards into the ail", and his mode
| of attack should be through this precious
! politician whom she had been spooning
with at the piano.    He would write to
Cecil Chester at once while he was in
the humour, and tell him a thing or two
which would make   his   next  visit to
Muriel's house one of a very different
order from the last.
He only fully arrived at this determination when "the ticket-collector at the
I gate had allowed him, not without some
] scruples, on account of his evident iti-
I toxication, to stagger on to the station
j platform. A number of passengers were
assembled for the last train, and among
these a darlc figure moved silently and
without attracting attention.
Kestrel had drifted to his rendezvous
by a sort of instinct which guides drunken men into the place of reason, but for
' the moment he forgot what had brought
him there, his mind being exclusively
occupied with his scheme of revenge
against Muriel O'Connor.
He must write that letter���that letter
to Cecil Chester. It would be such a
lark, and serve ont Muriel so jolly well
for her infernal meanness.
He gazed about stupidly for writing
implements, and it chanced that his eyes
fell upon an automatic machine for the
delivery of postcards and stationery,
with convenience for writing letters on
the spot. It seemed as if the devil had
answered his need, lr a few minutes
the denunciation was wtitten and addressed to the Honourable Cecil Chester
at the House of Commons, and Kestrel
stood gazing about him for a pillar-box
or a messenger.
!    The latter he quickly found.   A short,
thick set man. muffled in a large scarf,
I with a rough cap pulled down over his
eyes, stood at Kestrel's elbow.
"Here, my fine fell'r, take this to the
��� poserfish.poppetin," said Kestrel huskily;
I and the man took the letter at ouce, and
i replied in an equally husky voice:
I     "All right, sir!"
"That'll do for her, I think!" muttered Kestrel to himself as he walked unsteadily up the platform to keep his appointment with Dorothy Dundas, which,
now that he had got rid of his mental
incubus of revenge, recurred to him
forcibly.
The' last train thundered into the
station. In the confusion Dennis Donovan stepped aside under a lamp, and tore
open the letter Kestrel had given him.
As he read it his face assumed a fiendish
expression, half gloating with a savage
joy, half desperate and iui'tiguant, wholly
bloodthirsty. So preoccupied was he
with the perusal of this clumsy scrawl
that he for a moment lost /sight of his
cliargo, and it was only as the train began to move off that it occurred to him
to join it, and follow Ralph Kestrel to
his destination. He made a rush fur the
nearest carriage, but was roughly thrust
back by a porter with a peremptory :
"Too lute, sir!"
And as he found himself left solitary
upon tbe platform, he gnashed his teeth
with fury at the thought that for tho
moment his prey had escaped him.
But stay! Yi'hat was that distant
figure staggering in a broad moonbeam
that shot down through an opening in
the roof of tlio stuiiou? Ralph Kestrel,
by all that was propitious! Ralph Kestrel, tarrying for his doom I
At that moment the distant figure dis-
appeaied in the shadow, and simultaneously all the station lights were turned
out, leaving Donovan iu darkness.
The gates were being locked, and one
by one the weary porters went home to
bed.
Dennis Donovan stood listening until
thi1 sounds faded away, and then, with
the switt stealthy movement of a panther, crept towards the spot where he
hud seen Kestrel disappear,
Yes, he was there still, reeling about
in the gloomy shadows, and muttering
incoherently:
"Where's little sailor-girl? Where's th'
sailor? Here am I. Where are you?
Dorothy, Dorothy, have you cheated me
aguin thistime? If y'have, I'll serve you'a
I have Murv. see if I don't!   I'll set your

We refer to our 20 per cent, reduction sale, which is the town talk just at present. Everything we promised in the way of re-
ductionsit has been proven we have done. Misrepresenta' ion may draw trade to-day, but it hurts the trade of the future. The most
careful and judicious buyers in the district have informed us that when they require a first-class article, at a low price, their experience has been that it saves a great deal of time and worry by coming direct to us. We make a specialty of Fine Goods, and
have imported material into N anaimo which it was heretofore impossible to procure outside of the large Cities. This means a bigger
outlay, and necessitates our carrying a stock of between $35,000 and $40,000, but we have to do it to get the assortment.
We have received another shipment of goods from Scotland to-day This lot of cases contains Flannels, Black and Navy
Serges, Meltons, and a large variety of Black Figured Dress Goods We ha* e also received a half dozen of White Blankets, as a
trial order.   These goods are really something choice, and as there is only a few pair we expect them to sell very quickly.
While you are figuring what you will have for your father, mother, sister, brother, or someone else's brother, for Christmas,
we would suggest your calling and taking a look through our Immense Stock, when you will readily find something to suit you.

have left the city, leaving aeveral debts unpaid.
It is reported by Mr. Turner Townsend,
conductor on the Esquimalt and Nanaimo
Railway that a good deal of annoyance is at
present being experienced by the train men
from tramps trying to heat their way into
the oity.
In St. Alban's Hall to-morrow evening,
the second of the series of ten cent concerts
will take place.
The Wellington Union Football Club will
play the Victoria Wanderers on the 23rd in
the British Columbia Challenge Cup tie.
The match will be played at Wellington,
and will be refered by Mr. Robert Adam.

No definite conclusion wa6 reached at the
meeting of Northfield miners on Sunday.
The proposition made by the New Vancouver Coal Company was talked over at
length. A proposition to the company was
framed and a committee of the miners will
confer with the company regarding it.
A bazaar, in aid of St. Mai thews'Church,
Wellington, will be held in Institute Hall,

16th and 18th inst. Tea and entertainment,
admission to which 50 cents will be charged,

The end of the season is near. Owners of
dogs without new and revised editions of
the municipal tag, canine version, are likely
to be kept busy shortly dodging the tax
collector, aud lhe dogs themselves dodging
the pound keeper. The city is full of tag-
less canines, so the last named functionary
is likely to have a busy time.
The display in the windows of Messrs.
Sloan k Scott's dry goods store is particularly handsome, and attracts the attention
of the sterner sex almost ��s much as it. does
that of the fairer portion of Nanaimo's population. A ball dress on exhibitiou, perfect
in form and design, is a triumph of harmonious contrast of color and materia).
Mr. James Haslam, a farmer of Cedar
District has shot three bears and trapped a
fourth this season, hy which ha realized on
an average ?4 apiece for the meat alone.
His customers were Chinese, who think bear
meat, especially the paws, a great delicacy.
Those who have tasted bear paw (not live
bear paw) consider ita particularly appetizing dish.
