began here to-day. The prisoner is defended by the R. R. Company, in whose employ

dioted his wife's story regarding the secret
conspiracy meetings alleged to have been
held at his house, the reading of the "remove at all hazards," letter, and the meeting of Burke and Coughliu uutside Foy's
house, the night of May 6th. The prose-
ijtttii u did not change the tenor of his
testimony.
Governor Waito Hoard From Again.
Denver, Colo., Feb. 6.���Governor VVaite
read a long address before the Wool Growers' Convention this moining, advancing his
viewa upon the question of finance and
tariff, lie deolared that the people should
rise and wrest the country from the tyranny
of Lombard and Wall streets for the restoration of the constitutional right to coin
stiver. He said he had no faith in a Congress controlled by trusts and monopolies.
Resolutions were adopted asserting that
wool is not a raw material and that to place
wool on the free list to benefit the wool
manufacturers of the east, the conduct of
Congress in this matter, he claimed, is a
fatal blow to the pastoral business in whioh
thousands of citizens are interested.

the Foreign Office, received today for Lord
Roseberry'. a deputation from the Clyde

has been. Mr. Bertie replied to their complaints at some length. The latest telegrams f'om Mr. Wyndham, tha British
minister iu Rio, he said, stated that* the
foreign warships were now affording full
protection to merchant shipping. That
colliers were unloading at the piers and that
the inlerrup'ion of traffic at Rio had virtually ceased.

William II. Talks Cousinly.
Berlin, Feb. 0.���Count Caprivi's Parliamentary dinner, whioh precludes the final
struggle over the Hussion commercial treaty,
was held this eveniug at the Ghanqplloi *'s
palace. Kmperor William was present and
talked uliiu*: t constantly with the guests.
Iu conversing with several deputies, the
Kmperor advocated strongly the passing of
the Russian commercial treaty and emphasized tbe fact that the rejection would have
disagreeable consequences for Germany.
Toward the olose of the dinner Emperor
William spoke concerning the Russian
treaty iu the Reichstug. - He said:
"Tie Reichstag was neer before called upou to make a decision
fraught with such important consequences.
It is certain that the rejection of the treaty
would be followed speedily by a tariff war
and later by aotual war. Let every deputy
aot at this time, so that none may be able to
say afterwards, 'I did not know.' The
favorable terms granted to us in the treaty,
which was sigueii to-day, are entirely due
to the personal intervention of his majesty
the Czar, to his well knowu strong lovo of
peace. The tioaty boars every evidenoe
throughout of that love which has been
strong enough to overthrow the vigorous
resistance of the manufacturing and com
meroial interests of Russia."

had received and for the spirit with which
members of the convention had been greeted
in San Francisco. He was satisfied that if
every community would uphold the hands
of its tire department officials, as San Francisco did, it would redouud to the credit
and usefulness of every department on the
coast. Chief Deasy of Victoria, B. C, congratulated the convention on the fact that
the body was beginning to grow. Every
city represented at previous conventions was

Coburg, Ont., Feb. 6.���A large crowd
witnessed the skating races here to-night.

New Orleans In Gala.
New Orleans, Feb. 6.���The climax of
the carnival festivities was reached to-night,
when fullv 100,000 people thronged the
streets. A goodly number were masked to
witness the gorgeous pageant of the "Crew
ofComus," The subject portrayed was one
with whioh all are familnr. Fairy stories of
all nations collected under me title of **oooe
upon a time." The cars were all gorgeously
arranged and depicted. The grand balls of
both Rex and Comus, the one at the Royal
palace, aud the other at the French opera
house, were held to-night and their terminations in the early morning hours will be the
end of this years carnival.
Lovely Law in Chicago.
Chicago, Feb. li.���Sensational proceedings marked the Coughliu trial to-day.
They began with the introduction of the
jury, and of two men who wero stronglj
suspected of having been members of the
Crouiu murder conspiracy. They were men
whom Mr. and Mrs. Foy accused of being at
her house, holding secret aud whispered
conversations before tho murder. Thomas
McKenna aud Michael O'Connor aie their
names. They wete called principally to disprove the confirmation of the statement
that secret conferences wero held at F>��y'��
house, that Coughliu followed Burk, when
the latter passed on the night of the murder
and Foy and Coughlin met outside Mrs.
Hurton's house, in Lake View, ou the night
of May 12th, for the alleged purpose
of painting the blood siained Carlson cottage. The witnesses swore
harmoniou"ly. Both are active mini
In rs of Camp 20 and knew the other
defendants well. Two other witness against
Mrs. Foy wero bitter and hateful iu their
expressions. Oue Ansdrough disgraced the
defence by being iutoxicated and making an
unseemly exhibition. He stood up, shook
hiB fist in the direotion of tho prosecutor
and raved like a madman against Mrs. Foy.
"1 believe Bhe is crazy anyway," ho shouted.
The court was content to keep the stimulated and vindictive witness within tho
bounds of decency. Another exciting episode was the violent altercation between
Prosecutor Bottom and Attorney Donoghue
just after the noon recess. Tho prosecutor
accused Donoghue of virtually calling him
and a newspaper  man a liar.    Tho   judge
i'umped iu without waiting to hear from
10th sidoa, fiued Donoghue $50, then took it
baok, bul the lawyer did not, and Bottom
dared him to say it outside the courtroom.
The Kaslo-Slocan Distriot.
In considering and speaking of the interior
parts of this Province, men are prone to
sum up and commend or condemn them ac-
sording to their ideas of oertain places and
t.wnsites. A little reflection will show
that this method is erroneous and altogether
opposed to the unfailing law of environment.
Man do not make towns, without some surrounding influence and natural advantages
which have been developing in the neighborhood from times primiuval. Before this
country was discovered, known, or inhabited, even by its aboriginies, nature, through
all the geological eras, waB working and developing the mother earth of the Kaslo-
Slocau district iuto a vast coffer of apparently inexhaustible mineral wealth.
On each side of the Kaslo and Carpenter
Creeks there is a belt of ore; the wet ore or
galena belt being on the south side, and the
dry oie, or quartz, belt lying ou the north
side.
Messrs. Wilson and McDermott, who
recently came over from the mainland, are
now exhibiting in the * ffice window of Mr.
T Kitchin 60 ���amplcs of galena and quartz
ores front the Kaslo-Slooan district.. Most
of the specimens *-re from the wet belt
claims, v. hieh are already partially developed, and have an assay average of from
*<2(M) to $1,600 per ton iu silver, with a lead
percentage of 50 70.
The claims and mines being worked are
the Washington, Slocan Star, Noble Fire
Group, Reco, Blue Bird, Dardanelles, Surprise, Ruby Silver, Chambers, Wellington,
Freddy Lee, Idaho, St. Johns, Vancouver
Group, Mountain Chief, Northern Belle,
Noonday, Robert Lee, Silverton Group, Two
Belles, Monte Ciisto, Alino, Cumberland,
Lucky Jim, Roadley, Wonderful and several
et ceteras The foregoing represent the wet
ore belt which is being the most extensively
worked at the present time, but, the dry
ore belt ou the opposite side is expected by
experts to yield still larger and more surprising results. In the Altrurists claim, the
Dolly Vardcn ledge has a view be* ween the
walls of 12 feet iu width, compo ed of free
milling proposition quartz.
When tho dry ores are worked and fluxed
with the wet ores in a smeller locally situated then the prosperity of the Kaslo Slo-
can district will bo doubly assured. At
prei-i ' there an* r> present at ices and buy-
iti. noiii the smelters from all over the
Stai< - competing for the shipment of ores.
These geutlemen do not come into the
country to exploit British Columbia, but
enter it on purely speculative and business
principles, knowing that their purchases and
contracts will yield them good returns.
This fact alone, is worth all the writing up
which can possibly bo done by the most
descriptive pens.
As to the feeling nf our islanders in re-
Bpect to the Mainland, tiny should not ha
too insular and pronounce everything bad
because it is Mainland anil not of island production. Our seaeoast ami ports will remain
of comparatively small value and size unless tho interior of the Province is developed.
This development in rich iu promise in the
Kasln-Slocan cotititiy. Which may be the
Ir.nling town there is perhaps, a difficult
matter to pronounce and prophesy upon,but
this we know, that il must bo where the
naturil geographical and geological features
of the country decide the topography of the
town. At tho present time Kaslo seems to
hnvn the superiority in situation, and if Bhe
holds hor own with rival and competing
townsites, will undoubtedly become a oity
of vast import io thiB Province and a leading oue in its commerce.
When in Victoria, Mr. Wilson gave a
lecture on the Kaslo-Slocan distriot which
he will deliver here at an early date. We
shall bo able to give particulars to morrow
of when and where it will take place. Mr.
VVilsou will then till in the details which it
���s impossible to convey iu this brief account NANAIMO, B. C., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARI 7, 1894.
A LONDON  LETTER.
Yates, the society news factor of L mdon
cables to the New York Tribune pi yesterday:
The Princess of Wales and her daughters
left Sandringham on Saturday, after a residence of more than tiiree mouths, and proceeded to Osborne oo a visit to the Queen,
accompanied by the Prince. The Princess
has not seen the Queen for nearly six
months, as Her Royal Highness returned
from Denmark in the autumn direot from
Sandringham, and the influenza prevented
the usual viBit to Windsor Castle in
December. Her Royal Highnesa is now
quite restored to health and she will probably pay a brief visit to the Duke and
DuchesB of Fife at Sussex Square, Brighton,
when she leaves Osborne. The Queen has
begged the Princess of Wales to postpone
her departure for the Mediterranean until
after the two drawing rooms, which are to
be held at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday,
February 27th and Tuesday, March 6th.
The presence of the Princess at these functions, invitations to which are limited to
200, aro the best proof of the falsity of the
reports which have been so recklessly circulated about her resolution to retire from
society.
A Royal Racer.
The Prince of Wales raoing yacht Britannia completed her outfit last week, aud yesterday the yacht left Cowes for Gibraltar,
on her way to Marseilles. The Prince of
Wales will not leave for the Reviera until
the Becond week in March, and will hold
two levees before bis departure. He will return to Loudon about April 9th for ten days
before proceeding to Coburg.
A Cousinly Invitation.
The Emperor and Empress of Russia have
invited the Prince and Princess of Wales
and the Princesses Victoria and Maud to
go to St. Petersburg for the wedding of the
Grand Duchess Xenia and the Grand Duke
Duke Nicolovitch, which ceremony will take
place about Whit Monday. The Duke and
Duchess of Connaught are to go to Germany
in April for a short time and will be at
Cobourg for the marriage of the Grand
Duke of Hesse and the PrinceBf Victoria
Melita.
Bismarck's Doctor.
The reconciliation of Prince Bismarck to
the Emperor seems to have pleased everybody, except, perhaps, Dr. Schweninger,
who was compelled to reach the Emperor's
palace in a hackney coach, and when there
was cooly requested to dine with some subordinate functionary. The medico was
furious, for in other days he always had a
court carriage and a place at the table. A
tactical error has been committed, for
Schweninger's influence with the ex-chau-
cellor is unbounded and seems likely to increase as time goes on.
Tho Tiara Tired Her.
Mr. Goschen, who is accompanying his
daughter to Wiesbaden, halted for two days
at Brussels as the guest of Sir Francis and
Lady Plunket.t, and was able at the first.
court ball on Wednesday evening, to satisfy
King Leopold's legitimate curiosity as to the
sensational reports of Mr. Gladstone's impending resignation. The great gathering
at the palace waa one of the largest aud
most distinguished ever remembered, but
the Queen, who wore her priceless five row
tiara of the most costly jewels in Europe,
seemed depressed and retired early.
Tho G. O. M.'s Mantle.
'In consequence of the rumored resignation
of Mr. Gladstone there haB been a revival of
all the old speculation as to what will
happen when that resignation actually takes
place. It is a good opportunity for reviewing the prospect if the phrase be advisable.
There are men marked out for the first right
to the reversion of the leadership, Sir William Harcourt by priority of service, and
Lord Rosebery by superiorly of ability and
popularity. Both aro indispensible to the
party, but both are impossible, for Sir William will not serve under Lord Rosebery,
and Lord Rosebery will not serve under Sir
William. Who is then to have it" Ouly

Mr. Asquith's, but be i** too young nnd too
inexperienced aud too muoh envied. Shrewd

Bannerman, has thu lies*, chance of i he t*uc-

should they by auy chance come back victorious from the polls.
Military Men's Lite Insurance.
When the military and naval officers aro
ordered into active service, the extra
premium demanded by the insurance offices
is a great consideration. As an instauce of
the sum demanded, General Henry Bracken-
bury had to pay ��21 for every ono hundred
pounds insured for at tho outbreak of tbe
Aflhante war. Gen. Wolsley had to pay
��25 for every one hundred. These war
rates were not then based on any known
statistics, but elaborate calculations have
since heen gone into as regards the risks of
officers from a life insurance point of view,
the committee have adopted a set of premium rates within easy reach of officers for
insurance in case of war. A war policy,
covering risks of climate and warfare, an
officer aged 30 would pay only 8s. and 8d.
for ��100, more than a civilian in London.

Tha Poison of the Cobra.
The bite of the terrible cobra of India
ia looked upon as meaning certain death.
It is not surprising that experiments to
determine the nature of. this awful
poison should attract wide attention
when tboy aro made in a scientific manner entitling their results to bo accepted
with confidence. Such experiments have
recently been conducted by Mr. A. A.
Kanthack. The venom was obtained
hy pressing the heads of living cobras,
by which nerve trying operation tho
deadly fluid waa squeezed out of the
fangs.
The fluid dries very quickly and leaves
a yellow substance resembling gum
limbic or the dried albumen of egg, which
is easily pulverized. Tho activity of the
poison is destroyed by prolonged boiling.
a concentrated solution of it withstanding the effects of boiling for an hour or
two before entirely losing its poisonous
action. A weak solution could be rendered innocuous by being boiled from 20
minutes to half an hour.
But of course this can givo no comfort
to any victim of a cobra bite, since the
venom, once injected into his blood,
could by no possibility be subjected to
such a process of boiling.
Ammonia and chlorine water also
proved capable of destroying the poison
if applied to it for a considerable time
in strong solutions, and carbolic acid considerably delayed its poisonous action.
Some hope had been raised that doses
of strychnia might prove a means of
cure, but the experiments showed that
there waa no foundation for this hope,
so far, then, a cure for the bite of the
cobra remains to be discovered-

THE  HISTORIAN.
The story of Kins Arthur nnd his round
table is a myth, although what purports to
be tbe round tnble is still to be seen ina
south England town.
General Camhronne did not say "The
guard dies, but does not surrender." The
words were the invention of a Paris journalist and attributed to him.
Queen Eleanor did not suck the poison
from her husband's wound, as she did not
accompany bim on the expedition during
which this incident is alleged to have taken
place.
Cromwell and Hampden did uot attempt
to sail to America just before the outbreak
of the English revolution. A number of
their friends did, but they had no thought
of going.
The French soldiers In Constantinople in
1204 did not, as stntod by Voltaire, dance
in St. Sophia with the women of the city.
Wheu Voltaire was asked where he read
the statement, he said: "Nowhere. I invented it."
The siege of Troy was mostly a myth
According to Homer's own figures, if there
ever was such a man as Homer, Helen must
have been at least (50 years of age when she
first met Paris, and even in tbe heroic period
of the world women of that age were a trifle
passe.
George III win nor. the cruel tyrant he is
represented by the Declaration of independence, but was a mild mannered, pleasant
old guntlemon wbo loved childreu ami waa
fond of asking country people where they
were guitiK and what they were going to do
when they got there.
Louis XVI did not behave with overwhelming dignity nt his execution. On
the contrary, he screamed for help, struggled with the executioners and begged for
mercy. Nor did tbe attendant priest say
"Son of St. Louis, ascend to beaven." The
expression was used for him by a Paris
evening paper.���St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

AdAIN FIRING ON THE BRITISH.
The Frenoh in West Africa have again, it
appears, been firing on the British. The
latter returned the fire, killing six of the
attacking force. It is not reported how
many, if any, of the British were killed.
Several of the French, it iB stated, were
captured. The British force attacked consisted of military police. It is not stated
whether Mr. Gladstone's Government is
doing anything, or proposes to do anything,
in the matter. These repeated attacks on
the British in West Africa by the French
cannot be accidental. It must be the result
of design on the part, no doubt, of youthful
and not over wise officers among the French,
who want to bring on a war between the
two nations. If the condition of the French
navy and coast defeuce.-i is anything like
what Mr. Lockroy described it to be the
other day in the Freuch Chamber of Deputies, a war by sea with a first class naval
power like England is the last thing that
Frenchmen ought to wish for. At any rate
it would bo only prudent for the French to
make sure about the condition of their navy
before they provoke a war with England.
The French, before the last war with Germany, similarly imagined that their army
waB invincible, aud that a march to Berlin
would be for it a mere military promenade.
They discovered when too late their error,
that their army was in reality weak, and ita
administration rotten. Swift, defeat and
national humiliation followed. The lesson
then taught to the French seems already to
be forgotten. They should hewaro of committing a similar blunder in the case of England, by wantonly forcing a war upon her,
at the very moment that they have been
told in the French Chamber of Deputies by a
member of a commission appointed to investigate their naval affairs, that the French
navy is bad and its administration rotten.
We trust, no matter what the real condition
of the French navy may be, that the British
Government will not tamely submit
to this second insult at the
hands of the Frenoh tro.ips in West-
Africa, but wdl at, all risks lusist on explanation of the our.rugi, an apology, and
ample reparation. The policy of the new
radicalism, which Mr. Gladstone favors, aud
such men as Labouchere profess and support,
the ohief features of which are disintegration at home and disrepute abroad, is having its natural fruit. If Gladstone obtains
a majority however small at the general
election which is approaching, and if he is
granted a few more years of life and power,
he and the new radicals will infallibly ruin
England and destroy her empire. Great
Britain needs a patriotic government which
will place British interests first and those of
England's enemies and rivals second���by a
long interval. It is to be feared that Great
Britain will never possess a government of
this sort, so long as Gladstone and the Radicals are maintained in power.
justice, proves that the tariff policy of Hie
Cleveland administration is not popular
with the people of the United States. It is
probable that the reform of the tariff, which
the Republicans blame for the existing depression in business in the United Slates, is
not popular with the working class there,
who are told every day of their lives that it
is the disturbing policy of the Democrats in
lespect of the tariff which has caused the
shutting down of hundreds of factories all
over the United States, and has filled the
streets of the towns and cities with thousands of idle and almost starving workmen.
These feeling the pinch of the hard times
and even of want in many caBes readily believe it when they are told, as the Republicans do not forget to do, that the fault of
it all rests with the tariff reform policy of
the Democrats. The workmen are being
constantly told that so long as Ihe policy of {
high protection, with which the McKinley
tariff is identified, waB maintained, the
country was prosperous and workmen had
plenty of work at high wages. Look around
and see how it is, say the Republicans
and their organs of the press, now that
the Democrats with their low tariff policy
have got possession of power. The workmen all possessing votes under the American
system, and cursing in their hearts the
policy which seems to have deprived them
of work and wages, naturally listen to the
arguments of the Republicans and vote accordingly.
This was the cause of the defeat of the
Democrats in the Fourteenth district of
New York city at the recent election, and
of the greet reduction of their majority in
the Fifteenth district. The preseut is the
transition period between the policies of
high and low protection, when the benefits
of the former system have been interrupted
and those of the latter hnvo not yet beguu
to operate. It is probable that the Democrats would be defeated in all the large
cities and towns if the elections could be
brought on now; but it may be very different a year hence, when the deprepsioa
in business now felt so keenly has to some
extent passed away, aud the rural districts
have beguu to feel the benefit of a low
tariff This is the main hope of the Democrats, that their tariff policy will prove it8
value before the next presidential election
comes on, and that by that time geueral
prosperity will have returned. If not, if
the business depression, scarcity of work,
and low wages still continue when the next
presidential election comes on, nothing can
be more certain than that the Democrats
will sustain a disastrous defeat.

AMERICAN POLITICS.
The Republican party in the United
States are very much elated over the result
of the recent elecion of two congressmen to
represent the Fourteenth and Fifteenth
districts of New York city. Both these
districts were heretofore Democratic strongholds. Col. John R. Fellows, a Tammany
Democrat, was elected to Congress in 1802
from the Fourteenth district in New Vork
by a majority of 8,825 over the Republican
candidate. Mr. A. P. Fitch, another Tammany Democrat was elected for the Fifteenth district adjoining at the same time
by a majority over the Republican candidate
of 11,869. Fellows and Fitch resigned their
seats in the House of Representatives on
being elected in November last to the offices
of District Attorney and Controller respectively, and special elections were ordered to
fill the seats thus left vacant. The result, of
the special elections which took place a few
daya ago was that the Republicans
oarried the Fourteenth district,
and in the Fifteenth reduced
the Democratic majority from 11,860 when
Fitoh was elected to 4,687 at the late election. The Democrats have lost thu seat for
the Fourteenth district, and have only succeeded in retaining that for the Fifteenth
distriot by a majority reduced more than
one half.
This result the Republioins and protectionists argue, with   much   appearance   of
Speaking of the passage of the Wilson
tariff by the House of Representatives of
the American Congress, the Seattle Post-
Intelligencer, a strong Republican organ,
says:
"The House has passed the Wilson tariff
bill in its most extreme and odious form.
Coal iron, lumber, wool aud raw materials
generally, with sugars of all kinds, are to
be put upon the free list, the sugar bounty
is to be abolished July 1, 1894, and the
reciprocity clauses of the McKinley Act,
under which recipiocity treaties were negotiated with various countries, arc to be
specifically eliminated from the law; an income tax is to he provided for, and a general
scheme of ad valorem duties substituted for
specific taxes."
It is to be hoped that the Grits are pleased
when they see a statement Mich as tliiti published in a leading organ of their American
allies of the Republican party.
The Agrarian party in Germany, that
is, the party who profess to h*ive especially
the interest of the farmers at, heart, are
much ojip'isii'i to thu acceptance by the German Government oi the Russian tariff luti-
venliou. A treaty to gi"fc* effeot t.n it is
before the Geiman riohstag aud it is confidently expected that it will pass. The
president of the Agarian League went
recently to Fredrichrue to urge Bismarck to
make a public utterance against tho proposed treaty, and met with a refusal. The
Prince will uot speak against it and has also
refused to make the newspapers which he
controls attack the treaty. The reconciliation of Bismarck with the ernpurior is therefore already bearing fruit. Tho Prince is
less disposed than he was to oppose the
emperor's policy. The treaty will permit
the entrance of Russian wheat into Germany duty free or nearly so, hence the
opposition to it by the Agar ian party, who
counted on Bismarck's support and indeed
boasted of it. But the reconciliation with
the emperor has changed all that, if he had
any real intention of support ing the . Agrarians, and it, is not certain that, he had.
Indeed Bismarck's policy was alwuys one of
friendship to Russia, aud it would not be
consistent on his part to oppose a treaty
which has for its chief object to open up a
great market for Russian produce. It hence
appears that Bismarck's reconciliation with
the emperor will tend to I he preservation
of peace between Germany aud Russia, and
consequently to the preservation of peace in
Europe, which is not likely to be broken as
long as Germany and Russia remain good
friends. This iB in fact the ohief importance
which the reoent reconciliaien had for foreign nations. It is tending to a good understanding between Germany and Russia, and
consequently to the preservation of peaoe
between them.

Coal Mines Regulation Act of  1890 to be
Amended This Session.
Victoria, Feb. 6.���[Special.]���In the
Legislature this afternoon Adams, Cariboo's
new member, was heard from for the first
time, his resolution asking for a reduction
of duties on certain things necessary to
miners and agriculturalists being received
with favor, and unanimously adopted.
In reply to a question, Premier Davie caid
the Government did not propose to appoint
a timber inspector, vice Duncan MacRne,
deceased.
Mr. Keith's question,��� Coal Mines Regulation Aot of 1890, was answered by
Premier Davie, who Baid the act at present
was not workable, but would be made bo
this Bession. If. cannot be made part of a
law that Hie Chinese shall not he employed,
but it can be said that none be employed
whose igr.orunce **r incapacity renders their
employment, a source of danger to others.

Fresh Light on the Frenoh Firing.
London, Feb. 6.���It is virtually oertain
that the encounter between the British and
French military police, reported in a despatch from Sierra Leone yesterday, occurred in the Samn country, about forty mileB
north of Freetown, where ihe Frenoh and
British frontiers touoh. As there is no expedition in ihat locality, it is probable that
that the two bodies that came into collision
were native police and not Europeans.
The Duke of Devonshire Speaks.
London, Feb. 6.���The Radical papers
devote considerable space this morning to a
speech made by the Duke of Devonshire in
the House of Lords last evening in opposition to an amendment to the Parish
Councils Bill which Lord Salisbuiy
had strongly advooated. These papers dilate
upon what they oall the Union Liberalist
revolt and desertion. This exaggeration of
tho incident muy possibly awaken the Tory
opposition to the bill, but it iB noteworthy
that Lord Salisbury half opposed the amendments advocated by the Duke of Richmond
and other Tories.

The Military Ball last night, though not
ono of the largest gatherings of the season,
had an assemblage comprising the elite of
the city, who with the gullant militia men
made up about forty couples which amply
filled the room. The music was
provided by Herm's orchestra and
was particularly pleasing in the selection*!
given. The dresses did ample juatice to the
nature of the festival and were very pretty
and varied both in color ami doHign The
following list of dresses will give some ido.i
of the combined effect. A very pretty
costume of red nun's veiling with
puffed sleeves and flounced skirts;
a light pink China silk trimmed with luce
and with natural ivy on the neck unrl
throat; cream silk trimmed with corded
silk and Valenciennes lace and ostrich tips
in the hair; black silk with puffed heliotrope
sleeves and black corsage trimmed with
beads; cream satin with trimmings of Oriental lace; pale lilac nuns veiling
gathered at the shoulders and
trimmed with lace; dove grey silk with
sleeves of shrimp pink; salmon colored
pongee trimmed with fish-net lace; cream
satin with sleeves of cream tulle; cardinal
China silk with new and fa* hionahle small
flounces; black satin de Lyon trimmed with
gold lace; cream nun's veiling trimmed with
bows and rows of riblion of a little deeper
shade, natural flowers being worn in the
hair; cream nun's veiling with pleated
ruchings; red China silk with handsome
draperies of fish-net; salmon pink nun's
veiling with puffed sleeves; beau-
titully flowered challis costume;
cream satin with three-quarter V. sleevea
trimmed with swan's down and natural
flowers. The costumes of the gentlemen,
varied as they were from the military
dresses to the ordinary civilian evening
dress, harmonized well with the ladies'
pretty costumes and made the scene
one to be remembered by all
those that witnessed or took part
in it. The decorations of the hall were
particularly appropriate and tasteful, the
walls beiug decorated with fligsinterBperced
mirrors and a star of bayonets surrounding
the royal motto iuolosed in which the corps
monogram N. I. C, occupied the centre of
the further wall whilst the central pillar
was artistically draped with flags
with a base of circling bayonets.
The supper.which was arranged under the
inperintendence of Mrs. Cooper, was both
excellent in quality and quantity and was
done justice to by all. The dance throughout was thoroughly enjoyed, and the Infantry Company are tn be congratulated on
the success of their efforts.
A Fatal Finish to Festivity.
New Orleans, Feb. 6.���In an outlying
district of the city at six o'clock this evening, the Mardi Grus sport of a party of
merry makers in costume, was brought to a
tragic ending by the killing of one man and
the wounding of four o'hers. At the corner
of independence and MorateB streets, a
masked party in costume encountered
several young men and a row ensued. Leone
Copping, a young man of 10 years, dressed
to personate a monkey, Hhot and killed
Phillip Boe, probably fatally injured Mike
Boe, mortally wounded his brother William
Copping and slightly wounded Valentine
Cramer. Leone Copping was arrested and
charged with murder.

Gold at Our Gates.
Mr. XV. E. Lynu, C.E., showed some
specimens of ore and rock, from the ledge
that he has recently located, which were
criticised and examined by a number of old
miners and experts yesterday afternoon, the
general opinion being that something particularly good has been struck. The ledge,
fii.iii which tbe samples shown were taken,
has, it is understood, nine feet in width,
and there ar* 90 feet of the ledge in sight.
Tho exterior cubing contains silver aud
arsenic, and is contained in a rock of variegated colors, and considered to be an excellent specimen of workable rock. The ledge
containing the gold is of white quartz con-
lain ng free gold in considerable quantities,
ih* ftp pinions shown having the precious
metal easily discernable to the naked eye.
I* it understood that the claim is to be developed very shortly and great hopes
are entertained as to the results
of the further working of so
promising a looking claim. The distance
of the claim iB inside two and a half miles
from town, and Mr. Lynu and his colleagues
are confident of the ultimate result of the
working of the .edge being highly successful, and numbers of experienced miners who
have seen the samples of rock also believe in
this as being a lucky strike. It is believed
that capital ha*< already beeu offered to
develop Nanaimo's closost aud richer, gold
discovery. Liquid assays of the gold-bearing quartz, and also of the exterior casing,
have been made, all of which have been
highly satisfactory; even when put to the
delicate tost of paper soaked in the solution
gained in analyzing the component paits of
the rooL brought in. Fur. her assays on a
larger scale are to be carried out as soon as
possible. A large quantity of the rock has
been brought in, it being understood that it
required five men to carry the numerous
pic.ies of auriferous ore and caning brought
to town for examination.

Before Hig Honor Eli Harriion.
The oase of Daniel Hicks, accused of.
stealing ��50 from one Cook, at the Somerset
Hotel, came up for hearing yesterday. A
number of witnesses were examined.
It Beems thut Cook had a bill in his hand
with the intention of betting the same on
any kind of a wrestling match, when the
accused entered the hotel. They immediately began au argument, which resulted in
Cook offering to treat all hands. They proceeded to the bar aud while there, in some
unaccountable way, Cook lost his bill, and
aocused the first man he saw of stealing it.
The man accused happened to be Hicks.
Cook had him arrested. The evidence of
Constable Stevenson, John A. Thompson
and others proved beyond a doubt that
Hicks was a hard working honest man.
This, coupled with other evidenoe, resulted
in the honorable discharge of the accused.
There is no doubt that Mr. Hicks was unjustly atreBted. Mr. F. McB. Young defended Mr. Hicks and Mr. J. H. Simpson
appeared for the prosecution.
Erratum.
In our account of the City Council meeting of Monday night, we reported Aid.
Cocking as saying, in reference to the request for lights, that each light cost $144
per annum, and, that as the Commercial
street bridge would require repairing this
year, it was advisable to proceed with
oaution. This should have been reported
under Aid. Nightingale's name.

thought, "if he proves capable and honest I will help him to make his own way
Into a good business. But should I find
him unworthy I am bound by no promise and can easily drop him and let him
pass from my thoughts."
But Edward was soon too valuable to be
discarded, and added to natural endowments his life was a peculiarly sweet exemplification of Christian faith and practice. His father was simply a moral
man, making no pretense to any religious motive for being, as he truly was,
an example of sterling honesty and unflinching integrity. *His own conscience
bore witness that he never oppressed the
poor; that the widow and fatherless
could bring no charges against him,
even in thought, for fraud or extortion.
When Mr. Stanly gavo Edward a
chance to work, he considered all indebtedness for kindness received from
his parents as fully canceled. He liked
the young man, and after some months'
acquaintance came as near loving him as
was prudent in a business man. Ht
would he well pleased to see him suc-
cessful, but if ho proved so while In his
employ it was, after giving him the situation, simply a business operation, and
every upward step henceforth must be
paid for in caro and profitable labor,
Btep by stop he slowly increased his
salary and bis l.-i'iors also. When after
four years of faithful toil Edward Newton had made himself so necSssary tu the
interests of his employer that it became
but selfish policy to offer him a partnership in tho establishment, Mr. Stanly
was at heart really rejoiced that his
cousin's son had proved so worthy and
had so faithfully earned the promotion.
When received into this partnership,
Mr. Newton's next step was to secure a
homo for himself. The idea of his marriage was distasteful to Mr. Stanly.
"Still," said he, "my rule has always been
to leave each man to aot and judge for
himself and then abide the consequences."
In his heart he whisperedi "Foolish
boy, whon he was doing so well too! He
will lose all ho has gained now. Had I
known of this marriage, I should have
waited awhile before receiving him as a
partner. But I shall watch more closely
than ever, aud if I dotect one fake move
I must drop him. Shall be really sorry
to do it, though. I must bo growing
childish. Edward has crept nearer my
heart than I thought any ono could," and
the old merchant's face showed a tenderer feeling than it hod worn ginoe
childhood.
But when Mr. Newton wedded Lucy
Dale and presented her to Mr. Stanly
her gentle, womanly mannors quito won
the hard old man's heart, and not many
years passed before he urged them to take
up their abode with him, that he might
at last realize some of tho true joys of
home. A few years under Lucy's pure
influence added to hor husband's truly
Christian but unobtrusive teaching, by
Cud's blessing, e^tened the worldly
heart, and whon, "like a shock of corn
iully ripe," Iilr. Stanly was gathered to
his ftithcrs Ins large possessions, after
tome affectionate legacies, were divided
among judicious charities and promised
long to be blessings to many.
Mr. Stanly left no near kindred, and
tho elegant dwelling and grounds, where
he had passed a lonely life till his young
friends brought jOy and sunshine into it,
he bequeal lied to Mrs. Nowton, "a thank
offering for the lovo she had shown him
and the good sho had done him." This
was tho v.: ��fniflcent place so poorly described ut tlie commencement of this
story remodeled and improved by its
present owner's correct taste until the
stern grandeur of tho original building
had grown into its now harmonious proportions.
Let the roader become bettor acquainted with Mr. Newton's household before
we intrude upon them whon assembled
in the pleasant study.
Lillian, the oldest, her mother's summer child, was born when tlie birds and
roses of June filled tho air with melody
and fragrance. Tall and graceful at 24,
sho has her mother's flglire, but with
more quiet and repose of manlier, Her
dark golden brown hair is twined in
heavy braids around her head, requiring
no other ornament than the siugio rosebud Georga has just placed there.
The twins���Rose and Ralph���next
younger than George, aro always the
first to attract attention on ontering a
room when the family are together. A
more lovely tableau could hardly be
found. Imagine a bright, petite figure,
with eyes that would be black were they
not ever too full of hope und joy, the
perfection of a woman's head adorned
with woman's crowning glury���a mag-
��� nificent mantlo of hair, the color of
which, whether lot down, as was
Ralph's teasing custom, to ripple in
beautiful waves to her tiny foot, or
bound in careless grace about her head,
was made by any changing light or position equally uncertain as her eyes.
So far this may carry an outline for
fancy to fill, but farther we may not venture. Tho most consummate artist
could but faintly convoy tlio charm, the
sweetness of Rose Newton's face. Hor
character was fresh and original. She
inherited from her fathur a singular command of choice and appropriate language and from both parents a well'balanced mind that cultivation had richly
stored, but the  sprightly  humor, the
brilliant and choice wit, the playful repartee, belonged to herself alone, or if
shared by any her twin brother. Ralph,
mi|-,ht claim a partnership, At 10, in
form and features, the brother und sis-
'er wero singularly alike, but now, when
nearly 20, Ralph's figure had developed
into more manly beauty and towered
high above his sister.
In mental endowments Rose hod tried
to keep near him in her studies, and
while he surpassed her in strength und
vigor of expression she far outshone him
iu brilliancy.
Alfred, the youngest, a lad of 15, was
nivite sedate���not as much given to the
1 * irterous amusements of boyhood as for
his health's sale his parents could havo
Wished, yet always ready to leave books
or his pleasant dreamings to oblige or
gratify another.
In person he had eyes of more striking
beauty than those already introduced,
but there were strange glances at times,
recalling of ten some of the peculiar traits
of all. Lillian's serene repose, George's
outspoken, decided tones, Ralph's impet-
uousity when arous J, as well as Rose*'s
glad, merry laugh, were all manifest or
mingled in his various moods. But there
were a thoughtful seriousness, a deep
fount of tenderest love and entire unselfishness, that were peculiar to himself and
made him, the youngest, the especial
darling of all. In each heart he was
cherished as the one whose talents would
some day be the glory of their name.
When they first spoke of tho ohangfe in
prospect, they had cheerfully accepted
the consequent labor and self denial beforo thorn, but in each heart was the
settled purpose that Alfred's opportunities f,*r developing ull the powers with
which he seemed endowed should not be
in any respect curtailed.
Eustace Dunbar had for years been one
of tlio household. He was the son of a
dear friend of Mr. Norton's, and at his
'.".ther's death had been committed to his
Kind care. Guardian of the aon and executor of his father's estate, Mr. Newton
had mado his homo a happy ono for the
young orphan when at'un early age he
was sent t > him from India.
Eustace had been us tenderly nurtured
and educated as his guardian's own sons
aud his small property so wisely invested
that now at the age of 21 he was .veil established iu a prosperous business. His
lovo for Lillian had sprung up from the
1. Tinning und u few months before she
went abroad, on tlie eve of his own departure for India. Their betrothal was
Inlly recognized. The arrangements for
their marriage in tho course of a few
months were in progress when this misfortune came upon her father.
Jasper Grenville was from a wealthy
southern family. Sent north to be educated, he entered the same college with
Georgo tho year that Dunbar graduated.
His manners were very attractive and
his character unblemished. Through
George he became intimate with Mr.
Newton's family and soon learned to
lovo Rose with all the enthusiasm of his
southern naturo, and she fully reciprocated the affection, The ir marriage v, ,Ls
not to take place for two years, and iiien
he hoped to Lear her to his native home,
whose beauties ho never wearied of portraying to her iu glowing colors.
CHAPTER VL
Eustace was with tho family at tho
evening meal, so important to tho New-
tons, and mot the revelation which Lillian conveyed to him as a true hearted
son should do. While at tea Grenville
was announced. Rose excused herself,
preferring to see her lover alone before
joining the family in the library, Some
timo elapsed before they appeared, und
t'.ien Jasper expressed his sympathy with
a sincerity und earnestness t:i it could
'leave no doubt of the lvaliutereithe felt
in tlie joys or sorrows of tue family.
Yet <. *oive, with hi:' perception sharpened by pr*, viousKuoWledge, <..**e,,*r.:eda
resiles:, nervousness tl at bcti.i.-'ii: 1 tome
dei'pc-r so...ee of uneasiness than the
sul ject now before them, und from
E< * '�� mood he thought she herself hud
detected something unnatural in his
manners.
When all were seated after supper,
Sir. Newton entered at once upon the
subject under considerations and briefly
narrated the substance of that which has
already been told.,
"And now, my dear ones, we are In no
danger of interruption this eveniug, and
here no separate interests need prevent
each from c .-.pressing his or her opinion
withperLt iroedoi i. Dunburand Grenville, you have cast, in your lot \ 1th us so
far us to make it very proper nnd desirable for your views to be heard with the
others. But, my dear friends, remember
you aro not bound to cling to fallen
fortunes."
"Surely," interrupted Eustace, "my
Lilly has lost no grace for which I havo
loved her tiiese many years by your diminished wealth, has she? Ah, sho is
only tlio more precious, and if I could
only make it apparent that ic mijjUt be
best; to hasten our marriage I could rejoice in your trials if I had not learned
to love the parents almost as much as
the promised bride."
"Althottgh I cannot boast a love of
many years, as can Dunbar," said Grenville, with unusual hesitation, "i thinkit
will defy any of fortune's vicissitudes. I
had heard some intimation of these troubles before I came and hastened hither

ODDS   AND   ENDS.'
A bhort Story, by Sloan & Seott.
Durirg the month of February we are always busy taking stock, and naturally come across a large number of Odds
and Ends. Now you know yourself���or at least most p ople know���that it DOE^5 NOT PAY to carry goods over from
one season to another. You see, those goods that lay on the shelves from year to year, until some of them are almost
old enough to vote, are eating themselves up in interest, and interest is one of those things that increase at a most alarming rate, especially if you are not watching it pretty close.
Now this is what we are going to do. Commencing Thursday, February 1st, we shall institute an immense Remnant
and Oddment Sale, and shall surprise everybody by the insinuating manner in which we shall throw stuff out over our
counters and tables. You can't but admit that we have g ven you some big surprises, one way and another, in the past
year.   But THIS TIME we shall cause the most incredulous to exclaim, " Well, I don't see how they can do it."
Remember, this Sale is only for February, and as there are only 24 working days in that month, you will require to
get around about every day while it lasts, so as to reap the full benefit.

An amusing sight can be Been by anyone
interested in the study of animals by being
in the rear of the Windsor House when the
pet bear is being fed. He is fed out of a
bucket, and the two caniuea of the hotel
are usually present at the time when Bruin
is about to receive his meal, and are interested spectators of the performance. The
youngest and giddiest dog, when some particular choice morsel appears, generally
makes a rush for it, and is usually treated
with stolid contempt by the bear. Occasionally Bruin relapses into ill temper and
knocks things about generally, including
the dog and bucket, when the elder dog
invariably gets his fine work in, by selecting
the choice morsels. The whole usually finishes up with the dogs getting licked, and
sent away in disgrace by the proprietor.
