London, Nov. 26.���The Government have
abandoned their intention to out the parish
councils bill in two and postpone the
poor law seotions until tbe next parliumen
tary session. The whole measure will now
be driven through the House of Commons
as fast as the use of the olosure will permit.
Even with the assistance of the olosure,
however, the bill will have uo chance of
passing before Christmas. Apart from the
successful obstruction of the Unionists,
Henry Fowler, President of the Local Government Board, and manager of the bill in
the House of Commons, has hampered the
progress of the measure by aocepting a new
clause, removing the disqualification of
married women aa voters in municipal elections. The new clause, which is strongly
opposed by a large group of Liberals,
simply proposes that women who pay ran s
in their own names, shall ' be
eligible to vote, whether married
or single. The Liberals, who are against
this clause, object that this is a step in the
direction of female suffrage in all elections.
Single women, who are ratepayers, already
possess the privilege of municipal franchise,
but they rarely take advantage of it. When
they have exercised it, they have generally
done so in favor of the Conservative party.
The history of the Primrose League also
shows how strong is the Conservative tendency among English women; the Liberal
party has never yet shown a disposition to
admit the principle of woman suffrage, and
recent experiences have increased its antipathy to such a course. Mr. Fowler's proposal, therefore, reoeives only a lukewarm
support, or direot opposition from the
Liberal benches. The prospects of the
Government effecting much practical
legislation in this . session or in the
coming one are becoming more and more
remote daily. The Lords will send back
the Employers Liability, Bill, deprived of
the contracting out and other essential
clauses. The bill will then be dropped, as
the majority in the lower house will refuse to
amend the measure as desired by the Lords.
A similar fate awaits the Parish Councils
Bill. The Peers will not assent to the poor
law clauses unless the control of the expenditures be left in the hands of the monied
class. Both bills will develop a conflict be
tween the Commons and the Kords as they
aim to democratise the country. In virtually rejecting them, the Peers are simply
defending the interests of the aristoratic
and monied classes.
Commenting upon the situation this week,
Henry labouchere, the Radical leader went
a long way towards pur socialism. He was
addressing the celebrated Radical Elusis
club. "The session has taught me" he said,
"not only that the House of Lords must be
abolished, but also that the House of Commons must be reformed. To-day the House
of Commons oannot fulfil its duties; it avoids
them und cramps them. It is the business
of statesmen to see that any man ready to
do a fair day's work shall get it. By state
pensions everybody ought to be enabled
after reaching 65 to obtain a fair living allowance. A better system of taxation and
his extravagance in public expenditure,
wou/d make it impossible to esUblish a fund
from which these pensions might be paid."
This is far and away the most socialistic utterance made recently by a Radical leader,
and is well beyond anything the Radical
party has stamped with Us approval. In
confessing thus his new socialism, Labouchere has no openly conspicuous sympathizer in his party except Sir Charles Dilke,
but he knows his way, and is confident that
he will soon compel his party to follow him.
The soreness of the French Government
over the Anglo-German treaty defining the
spheres of England and Germany's influence
in Central and Wist Africa is due to the
fact that France's plan to connect the French
Congo with Ihe French Soudan is thus completely bellied. The project to hold an unbroken stretch from the Meditteranean to
the Congo has been the seoret of French
ambition ever since Germany and England
recognized France's territorial rights to part
of the Soudan. The Anglo-German agreement, however, gives England power ovsr
the territory from the Congo to the basin of
the upper Nile, while Gormany is left to
dominate the western territory in the Lake
Tchad region, covered by France. M. De-
crais, the new French ambassador to England, has been charged to denline emphatically to reoognize for France the validity of
the Anglo-German agreement, but this declination will remain without effeot unless
the Frenoh win the victory in the next great
Lord Charles Beresford's proposal that
within the next four years England shall expend eighteen million pounds upon the navy
nas been received with friendly criticism by
the Liberal press. The almost unanimous
opinion of the country is that the Government, must follow a strong naval policy and
prepare to cope with the inoreased naval
armaments of Franco and Russia. This
opinion will enoourage the Government to
activity. The speaker says, "The public
call earnestly for the enlargement of the
fleet and tho means must be found. At the
same time to increase the naval estimates
ought to be attended with large deduotion
of the army estimates.

Tbe German Capital.
Berlin,  Nov.  25.���The progress of the
debate in the Reichstag on   the commercial
treaties with Austria,   Italy,   Spain, Servia
and Roumania, has been marked with growing virulence by ths   Opposition's langsags
toward Chancellor Von Caprivi.    Tbe utterance of the Agrarian leaders Herr  Splotez,
Count Von Temburg, Baron  Von   Stumme,
Baron Von   Monloupet   and   others in the
House   predicting  ruinous   effects   for tbe
Government's   polioy   thought    vehement
in     tone,     are      lalauced     expressions,
compared with the inspired   tirades of tbe
Ulter-Conssrvatives.     For     instance    the
Krueze Zeeitung, is assailing the  Chancellor
as the enemy of the slasses   on   whom   the
existence of the Empire rrsts aud as estra��g
ing those on   whom   the  Government mnst
rely in the time of  danger.    The external
and internal commercial policy of Chancellor
Von Caprivi ,will according to   one. Krueze
Zeeitung, beggar the peasants, breed socialists by the   wholesale,   spread disaffection
and demoralize the army,   the strength   of
which lies in   the   peasant   element.    The
paper ostensibly quotes the' Field  Marshall
Count      Von     Molke      as      foretelling
these results for   the treaties, whereupon
the North German Gazette pointed out that
Von Moltko died nine   months before  the
first of the commercial  treaties was negotiated.    All the parties have  been displaying great energy in oarrying on lobby negotiations.    The Agariaus have succeeded   iu
obtaining most of the   Ant'-Semit   votes in
the Chamber of Deputies, but on the other
hand tbe Centre party promises to support
the   treaties   wiih   Roumania, Servia   and
Spain.    With regard to the   treaty  with
Russia   the   centre   party is divided,   the
Lieberist group is waiting to see what ihe attitude of the Government will be with reference to the  recall   of   the   Jesuits,   while
the right wing is inclined  to join with the
Agraians in opposing  tbe  Russian  treaty.
The hopes of the government rest upon the
reference of   the  treaties   to a commission,
when   confidential   explanations   together
with other means may sap the opposition.
Mrs. Netter and Mrs. Leviusohn, both
Americans, died iu Berlin this week of a
disease contracted by eating oysters 'nfeoted
with typhoid bacilli. Tim oysters were
served in a fashionable Friednch Strasse
restaurant. Two persons who dined with
Mrs. Netter and Mrs. Levinsohn were also
taken ill in the r. staurant after eating the
oysters, but recovered.
Tbe Carlin Party Rescued.
Spokani, Nov. 25.���A courier arrived at
Kendrick, Idaho, at five o'clock this morning after an all-night ride from Weippe with
the news that Lieut. Elliott had found the
Carlin ptrty in the middle fork of the
Clearwater, one hundred and thirty miles
from any settlement last Wednesday. The
lost party, consisting of W. E. Carlin, J. H.
Pierce, A. H. Heinmilwright, and M.
Spencer, guide, were in bad shaps when
found, being out of provisions, barefooted
and with little olothing. They were slowly
making their way down the river when
found. George Colgate, oook of the party,
gavo out a few days before the rescue and
had to be left, and is feared may have
died. Eveiythiug possible will he done
to find him, dtad or alive. Rescued
aud rescuers are expected here on Tuesday
and General Carliu will be here to meet bis
son. The story of their sufferings, desperation and hardships as told by the lost
hunters was heart rending. They managed to cross the Clearwater in several
places at a great risk to their lives, being
compelled at times to wade the ioy current
up to their necks or swim amid floating
blocks of ice and suow. Nearly all the
horses died of cold and starvation. The
suffering of the men was intense. They
tramped for miles through deep snow,
through chilling storros with scarcely any
food or clothing. The men were up.n half
rations of bacon and bread. At last the
struggle became too much for Geo. Colgate,
cook of the party. Colgate realised
his situation fully and advised his
companions to attempt to save themselves.
Strong men shed tsars when one of the
party was left behind to meet his fate alone.
It began to appear as if all would be lost
and al oost the only hope held out to them
was the chance of being found by a relief
parly, whioh Carlin said he felt sure would
be sent out to find them. Carlin'e parly
have been out since September 15th and the
Elliott relief party was fitted out in Spokane
by Capt. Merriam two weeks ago.

Hawallans Anxious to Hear From Willi*
New York, Nov. 25.���A special from
Boston says: Ex-State Senator Gillman has
received from a prominent officer at Honolulu a letter in which the writer says: "Th*
people wait with anxiety Minister Willis'
disclosures. Provisional Government is in a
position to stand with much tenacity for
their rights. People here will not tolerate
the restoration of the monarchy upon any
terms. We shall resist any attempt at
restoration, and many of us would rather
be shot down in the street*] by our own
countrymen (the United Slates marines),
than submit to any such event. The strong
impres ion here 'a that Mr. Blount's report
is misrepresenting us. It is desirable that
we should team as soon as possible what is
tobe done, as the effect of waitiug is paralyzing all baaincsi. If the Queen be restored
by force it would have to be done wholly by
the United St it's, as the Queen has no
army. The United States would have to
maintain the Queen on her throne if she
were placed there."

Menage, the Minneapolis embezzler, ha*

A Theatre In Ashes.
Columbus, Ohio, Nov. 25.���Fire broke
out in the Henrietta Theatre at 8:15 tonight, and in less than an hour and a half
this elegant play house, the Chittenden
hotel and auditorium and the Park Theatre
were in ruins. Felix Morris, in " The Paper
Chase," was being played at the Henrietta,
and the orchestra had just finished the overture when the manager, Albert Ovens, appeared on the stage and informed the audience that there was a small blaze at the rear
of the theatre, and suggested that they leave
the house. As no flames were to be seen
and the audience was small, they
did so in order. The members of
the company were dressed for their
parts and as they were assured the theatre
was fireproof made no effort to save their
wardrobes. In a few moments the flames,
which first appeared in the large auditorium
adjoining the theatre, which was unfinished,
broke out in the rear of the stage aud almost insantly the whole proscenium was in
a blase. The members of the company fled
in their stage costumes. A man who was
recognized as Andrew Armstrong, a stage
hand who worked above the scenery appeared at the fourth story window of the
theatre and oried for help. He was told
not to jump, and he would be saved.
He disappeared from the window and
was not seen again. The Henrietta
had just entered upon its seoond season.
This theatre, the auditorium adjoining and
the Chittenden hotel were built three years
ago by Mr. Henry Chittenden and were
owned by him. The Park theatre was
owned by a stock oo.npany. The loss on
the Henrietta theatre and auditorium is
about $600,000. The Chittenden hotel, including furnishings and property contained
$400,000 and the Park theatre $10,900.
There were also in the building the Ohio
Savings Bank, the Star Shoe Store, Rice's
Drug Store and Goodman's Clothing Store.
The losses on these will aggregate $50,000.

The Kxecutioner Who Will Officiate at

The executioner who worked off Knne at

besides fifteen other murderers in various
parts of the world, said that it was settled
thnt he was to go to Woodstock to hang
"You'll llmi Birohall a difficult man to

"And for his size has a tolerably thick
"But remember he has never done any
bard work; that makes a difference.''
"In what way?"
"A man wbo has worked hard is a good
deal stronger and more muscular iu the neck
than ono who has not. 1 shall allow him
more drop than either Kane or Smith, but
not so much as Fete Davis."
"Are you going to use the old fashioned
drop scaffold, then!"
"No, We will jerk him up. I have the
weight here. It weighs 350 pounds, and is tbe
same one used ou Kane, Smith and Davis,

stood out like cords on it. I knew I was
goiug to have a job breaking it, but I succeeded. I slacked the rope six feet. Imagine
the force a 850 pound weight would gather in
falling six feet,"
"What slack did you give the rope for the
"About four feet. That would give less
than half the force tbat six feet would You
see there are a lot of things to tnko iuto consideration. There is weight, age, build,
habits mid temperament; you must study
them all to judge of tbe drop necessary."
"What's temperament got to do with the
length of drop you'll give a man;"
"A good deal. Take the murderar who is
determined to die game. He won't give up
till the last, aud it's a good deal harder to kill
him than the craven who breaks down before
he leaves bis cell and has to be taken out to
the scaffold limp, helpless and half dead before be is hanged at all. Now as for Birchall,
he'll either walk to the gallows with a swagger or else have to be carried there. He'll
either say to himself, I'm Birchall; everybody is looking at ma, or else he will be too
frightened to think or say anything. That's
the kind of a man be is."
" What drop would a alack of six feet be
equal to?"
"In Davis' enso it was equal to a drop of
13 feet."
"I noticed in London your manilla rope
twisted aud caused you trouhle. What kind
will yo i use this time?   Cotton!"
"Oh uo! cotton gives too much. I'll use a
hemp rope. I'm having oue properly stretched for Birchall now. And I'll tell you this,
I'm going to bring that rope back with mo.
I suppose relic hunters will make a dead sot
for pieces of it, but they won't get an inch of
it. They have destroyed enough ropes for
mo in the past.''
"Talking about methods," said the executioner," the Chinese have the neatest and
quickest method. I saw 13 worked off there
one day."
"How do the Chinese do it)''
"The thirteen w��re all put kneeling upvighl
in a row, and the executioner walked along
behind them with a sharp sword and slashed
off their heads, one by one. It didn't take
him more than a minute or so to do tho whole
job. Every blow sunt a head off, neat and
clean, and th re was no delay. 1 thought tu
myself I should like to have the job at a dollar a head. A fellow could havo made
Au execution is rather an expensive thing
for a county. Excopt for tho sheriff's attendance there are no fixed ices. The tar ill
of statutory fees fixed by the Legislature for
tbe sheriff provides for executions in the following manner:���
Ca Tying into execution the sentence of the
court iu capital cases all such sums as are
unavoidably disbursed to be taxed by the
court or judge wbo passed the sentence.
Attending aud superintending the execution in sujh cases, t'20.
The sheriff, therefore, puts in a bill of his
expenses, whatever they happen to be, to
the county, and they are paid. The hangman, if he is a good man, usually gets about
$50 and expenses. Then there is the cost of
erecting and removing the scaffold and various other items which rah up to several hundred dollars. Not the least among these is
the farce of holding an inquest ou the dead
man. The law provides that the victim shall
be hanged by the neck until dead. It then
further provides that a coroner's inquest shall
be held on the remains to ascertain the cause
of death, Tbat means an expense of $30 or
$40 more. Sheriffs as a rule, however, fond
as they are of fees, would refer to forego their
$30 and have no e�� >jt*'ona

On tbe question of the proper temperature
in setting milk, Prof. Henry reports: "Milk
set at 40 degrees for eleven hours threw up
all but 44.100 of one per cent, while milk at
45 degrees left 2. T per cent of butter in the
skim-milk. Setting at 50 degrees as compared with 45 degrees showed a loss from 3.8
to 10 per cent, and 55 degrees shows that the
range of loss is from 15.6 to 30 per cent, over
that set at 45 degrees."
If your cows are doing well on the feed

that cows, like human beings, become accustomed to certain foods and do well on them.

The chestnut���the good, sweet, reliable
American chestnut���may safely be consider
ed the most promising of all nuts suitable
for orchard culture. All we frill have to do
sb to plant seed for stock in orchard rows,
then look up some of the largest and finest
varieties, known to be good bearers, and
graft them upon the seedlings. This would
give us a valuable orchard after a while, and
perhaps as profitable' as if we planted Numbo,
Paragon, or any other.
Mr. A. S. Fuller, in a recent contribution
to the New York Tribune, calls attention to
the dwarf Chinquapin chestnut, as
a variety for the fruit garden and for the
children's pleasure. Whether it could be
depended upon as a source of revenue or not
certainly it will prove to be an dbject of interest, and well worthy of a place on the
lawn or in the garden.
The Chinquapin chestnut (Castanea pumila)
gives little promise of ever yielding varieties
of large size, says Mr. Fuller, still it deserves
to be better known in cultivation. The nuts
are small, globular or slightly oblong, and
produce singly, or only one in each bur, but
the burs are borne on long fruit-stalks,
sometimes a dozen on eaoh; consequently
the increase in number makes up in part for
diminutive size. The nuts are sweet and
tender, even more delicate than our common
The Chinquapin is most abundant in the
South, although found sparingly on the
sandy ridges of Pennsylvania and Southern
Ohio, In the more northern localities, as
well as in the richer soils of the South, this
species grows thirty or forty feet high, whilo
on the poor, sandy soil of the South it is a
mere bush, often not more than three or four
feet high, even when it is old and the plants
are matured.
Taken as a whole, this species appears to
be more variable than our common sweet
chestnut, and this lends to it its greatest
value in cultivation. By selecting the very
dwarf varieties we may cultivate them iu
rows as we do gooseberries or currants; or
they may be planted among ordinary low-
growing shrubs about ths lawn and garden,
and where tbe children oan hare the fun of
picking chestnuts from ths tree without
climbing or waiting for nuts to fall.
The variation in form color, and size
of leaf and habit of growth Beams to
be almost endless, because no two are
alike. One has leaves nearly as large as
the European chestnut, and on another they
are small, slightly oblong, and green on both
sides, instead of hoary tomentose underneath,
as usual in this species.
In productiveness there is ss great a difference as in other characteristics, but all are
curious and interesting. The nuts from
which these seedlings were raised came from
the South, but have proved perfectly hardy
in Northern New Jersey.
Give the children a few Chinquapin bushes
or trees, if for nothing mors than to add to
their pleasure, years hence, when thinking of
youthful days and agreeable surroundings.

In our issue of Sunday morning last we
pointed out some of the disadvantages under
whioh Nanaimo has had to labor during the
past three terms of the present Parliament
owing to the fact that her representatives
spent their whole time, in season and out of
season, endeavoring to oust the Government
rather than looking after the interests of
their constituents. That while, "during the
three years past Vancouver, Victoria, New
Westminster and other parts of the
Province have been receiving large
grants for publio buildings, traffio bridges
and other purposes urged by the representatives from these places," oitizens of Nanaimo were compelled to plod along in the
same old rnt, regardless of the increased accommodations required for the transaction
of our publio business consequent upon tbe
large increase which has taken place in
ths growth of this oity and district. We also pointed out that
"as a rule the best men in a community
are elected to represent its interest and that
if any one section should happen to be so
unfortunate as to eh ct man .nferior to representatives from other communities, tbat
one must suffer." Nothing could be
plainer than tha proposition laid
down at the outset of our article.
Nor could anything be more clearly stated
than the one with whioh we closed the
artiole in question as just quoted. Yet
two opposition organs in this province in
order to make oapital against this paper
and the Provincial Oorsrnmont have seen
fit to misrepresent and distort our remarks
to suit their own purposes. Ths one started
the falsehood and the other backed it up.
This province has been afflicted
for a number of years past in the
Legislature and a section of its press
with a pack of demagogues who havs dons
the oountry mors harm than it will recover
from for many years to oome. What this
city has suffered at their hands every ratepayer knows; and he knows, too, that if
they are again given an opportunity, ths
same state of affairs will continue as
long as their term lasts. As we
pointed out before, in pursuing the
course we hare adopted, we are
not neoessarily advooating the olaims of any
particular Government. What we dssirs is
that when ths time comes men will be elected
who have the ability to represent this city
and distriet with oredit to themselves and
their constituents, and if all parts of the
Province will act on this principle there
need be no fears as to ths kind of
a government we will have. While
ths principle "to the victors bslong
the spoils" is practised to a greater
or less degree in all countries it is a pernicious system but human nature nevertheless.
In every oivilized oountry there are two
well defined political parties. No matter
by what name they may be oalled they resolve themselves down to the "ins" and
"outs." The leaders who happen to get the
greatest number of supportsrs securs the
reigns of power. In this Province during
the past three years three of the half dozen
or so in opposition have bssn eleotsd from
Nanaimo and we venture to say that
when they were returned there wsrs not a
bakers dosen of the electors who took any
interest in the side of politics, these men
were going to support. The ratepayers expected them to do the best they oould for
the City, not to go to Victoria to represent
their personal views and interest to
the exolusion of all others. In these
hopes the electors havs been sadly disap*
pointed. The time of the House has been
taken up in airing personal matters, or in
opposition to the Government on purely per-
sonalgrounds. How can representatives un-
derthese oircumstanceB be expected to doany-
thing for their constituents. While, as we
said before, the principle of dealing ont the
lion's share of publio patronage to those
constituencies sleoting supporters of
the Government is a pernicious one, it
is human nature, and no matter
what Government may be in power,
it will be more or less recognised. If representatives are so muoh occupied in developing sohemes to oust the government of the
day, that they cannot look after
the wants of their distriots the Government cannot be expected to do it for
Our erratic contemporary the New Westminster Columbian, like all unfortunates so
afflicted, experiences rational moments occasionally. Whether the one now under
consideration is due to this particular phase of the moon or not is a
matter whioh need not now be too cloBely
looked into. Certain it is that on the 22nd
day of the present month the Colombian
struck its mental equilibrium, for a
few moments at least, when it forgot
Premier Davie and the Davie Government
a sufficient length of time to put itself in
an attitude of prayer and thanksgiving.
Amongst other items in its thankoffering it
says:���"It will be admitted, too, by the
most pessimistic that the Dominion, as a
whole, and the different parts thereof, have
abundant reason for thankfulness, if our
present condition, the past year's history,
and our future prospects, be compared with
those of our nearest neighbor, or of any of
the nations of the earth." Marvellous
change! But will it last"! We fear not,
and expect to see it in a few days again raving along the old lines of Darieism and
blus-ruin generally.

Contract Let   for a Reservoir In Stanley
Vancouver, Nov. 25.���The City Council
has let a contract for the construction of a
reservoir in Stanley Park. Some objection
has been raised to this work going on before
a permanent system of bringing the water
aoross the Narrows has been arranged for.
As at present constructed the I mains across
the Narrows are liable to break at any
moment and an accident might happen
which would shut the water off for weeks in
which case trie reservoir would be of very
little service.

Victoria, Nov. 25. ���The Viotoria Bteamer
Phantom, owned by Pettit brothers and
oommanded by the notorious Capt. Frank
Wilkes, formerly master of the saucy
Minne-ha-ha, was driven on a reef of rocks
by Friday night's gale and now lies a complete wreck near the entrance to Horse
Shoe Bay, Gordon Head. She had cleared
for Saanich Thursday afternoon and left
port after eleven at night. What brought her
into Horse Shoe Bay neighborhood can only be
conjeotured. It is believed she was on a
smuggling expedition and became unable to
contend against the violence of the gale
when trying to make the narrow passage
into Horse Shoe Bay. The "Phantom" has
met with numerous mishaps during her few
years of life as one of the Victoria coasting
fleet and had just left the ways where she
had been for several months undergoing considerable alterations and repairs. She was
a forty ton steamer, built in Port Madison
almost 30 years ago and valued at $4,000.

A Unique Sport   Recently   Witnessed  at
the French Capital.
A new field of competition with men,
recently opened up by that indomitable
spirit of progression characterizing
women of the present, is that of stilt
racing. It is unique, though after all
would seem to be but lapsing back to
first prinoiples, since it is primarily one
of tbe pleasures of childhood to be enjoyed regardlessof sex, coloror previous
condition of servitude. It bids lair,
however, not only to develop into an
art, but, in common with baseball,
cricket and other games dear to the
heart of the small boy, to have a fine
financial outlook. The key-note of
progress in this new line of occupation
has been sounded strangely enough, not
by Americd, but France, where, according to Kate Field's Washington, a race
on wooden legs recently took place
from Bordeaux to Biarritz and back, a
distance of three hundred and three
miles. The entries for the race were
eighty-one, and when the cavalcade
ou stilts set off from the Hotel de la
(Jironde to the inspiriting music of a
brass band it was accompanied by a
company of bicyclers who were to follow in the wake to insure the observance of fair play. Among the racers
was a man who claimed to have traveled
on stilts from Moscow to Paris. A quarter of an hour after the start had been
accomplished the band was again called
upon to play for eighteen women and
girls who essayed to make the run of
fifty miles from Bordeaux to Cerans
and back the same day.

Verified Very Quickly by the Death ot the
Dreamer's Husband.
A farmer's wife dreamed that sho was
walking near the house of a rejected
lover, one O'Flanagan, attended by a
beautiful hound, of which she was
fond, when a raven dashed at him,
killed him, and, tearing out his heart,
flew away with it. She next imagined
that she was running home, and met
a funeral, and from the coffin blood
flowed upon the ground. The bearers
placed it at her feet, opened the lid and
exhibited her husband, murdered, and
his heart torn out. She awoke, as
might be expected, in great terror. But
here follows the most incomprehensible part of the narrative. Her husband entertained an idiot cousin in the
house, and he in doggerel rhyme repeated the very same dream to a gossip,
to whom the farmer's wife had related
That very night, says the Pall Mall
Gazette, the farmer was murdered, and
the next morning the poor idiot, to the
horror ofiall, exclaimed as he rose from
his bed: "Ulick"���Ulick Maguire was
the farmer's name���"is kiltl Shamus
dhu More kilt him." (Shamus dhu More
O'Flanagan ���big black James), "and
buried him under the new ditch at the
back of the garden. 1 dreamed it last
night���every word of it." Search was
made at the spot indicated by the dream,
and the body was found with the skull
nearly cleft iu two. In the meanwhile
O'Flanagan absconded and enlisted, but
was subsequently arrested, confessed his
���crime and was executed.
A Droll Law In Paris.
Paris papers have frequently ridiculed the fact that notaries public are
never seen in a street car of the gay
capital. Any other lawyer uses these
public conveyances like other mortals,
but a notary never does. Why not?
The rules attached to the license granted to a notary on his appointment contain the ludicrous rule that the dignity
of notary prohibits the use of any conveyance used by the common plebeian
public. And the liberal administration
of the republic has never yet found time
to abolish the obsolete instruction.
A Weed That Eats Fish.
Commander Alfred Carpenter, writing
from Suakin, Bed sea country, eontrib-
Ures the following remarkable instance
of a plant preying upon one of the ver-
tcbrata. The instance noted was observed by him when surveying the Par-
aool islands iu the south China sea: "As
I n eared a pool cut off by the tide from
the sea. I noticed among other submarine plants a very ordinary-looking
flesh-colored weed. Bending to inspect
it closer, I noticed numbers of small
fish lying helpless in its fronds, apparently with little or no life in them.
Putting my hand down to pick one of
them up I found my lingers caught by
i tickers on the weed, the fronds of which
had closed tightly upon them. The fish
had been caught in every conceivable
way���by the head, the tail, sides, etc.���
and some of them had been held until
the skin was completely macerated.
Those of the fish that were still living
had evidently been caught at different
times, they appearing- in all stages of
exhaustion. I regret being unable to
name either the plant or the fish, but
t,hat the botanic cannibal really preyed
upon the finny denizens of the deep
there isn't the least doubt."

Kxploaive Celluloid.
As the mail train was running between Pierrefitte and Villiers recently,
says a Paris latter, the clerks in the
postal van for Cologne were startled by
the noise of an explosion, and.discovered
that a parcel addressed to Berlin was
in flames and threatening to set lire to
the other contents of the sorting
tender. The box was therefore thrown
out of the window cm to the line and a
telegram sent to the nearest station-
master to look out for it. On being recovered it was found to consist of a
cardboard box, which was completely
carbonized and the contents of which
had entirely disappeared. It was dispatched to Berlin by a manufacturer of
combs, and is supposed to have contained articles made of celluloid, which,
being placed at the top of the van near
the lamp, became heated and caused
,the explosion.

An inquest on the body of Janes Kennard
was held at Englishman's River yesterday
afternoon by Coroner Walkem. The following jury were empaneled: James Craig (foreman), Robert Algie, H. Gaetien, C. Wei-
rich, William Redmond end U. Gaetzen.
The first witness examined was William
MillB, who stated that he was a farmer living at Englishman's River; knew the deceased, James Kennard, for about three
years; identified the body before which the
jury were sworn as that of Kennard ; deceased was a carpenter; saw him the laat
time alive at noon yesterday, Nov. 24th,
1893. About 11 o'clock yesterday the deceased came to my house aud said he had a
bear up a tree, aud he aeked me to come
down wiih a saw and out the tree down. I
came down'to the tree, which was on Hirst's
property, about a quarter of a mile
from Mrs. Herring's house. Mr. Plummer
wsb in front of a iree which was thought to
contaiu a bear. This tree had a hole at the
foot ot one side of it. James Kmuarri aud
George Plummer both had rifles. Witness
staried to chop down the tree and Plummer
and Kennard pr, pared to saw it down on the
other side. Did uot notice what Kennard did
with hia rifle. Had been chopping about
two minutes when witness heard the report
of a rifle and turning round saw Kennard
rolling off the log. Saw a large stream of
blood streaming out of the top of hia head.
He died instaniiy, never speaking a word.
Did not examine the head to see where the
ball struck. The body was carried out to
the road to a team driven by Mr. Kennedy,
of the Wellington Hotel. It was afterwards
taken to Mrs. Herring's.
George Samuel Plummer deposed that he
knew the late James Kennard. Saw him
last alive at noon yesteaday, the 24th Nov.
Yesterday about 10 o'clock in the morning
witness was trailing a bear up from Englieh-
man'�� River, and followed him until he
crossed the Comox road, when witness
came to Mrs. Herring's and told Jamea
Kennard tbat witness was on a bear track.
Deceased said he would eo along with witness; followed the bear's tracks up to a
cedar tree. The tree was a large one, about
five feet in diameter, and an opening in the
bottom of the butt. Deceased said he'd go
and get an axe and saw from Mr. Mills.
Then witness saw Mills and deceased
coming towards him. After a consultation
we deoided to stop up the hole,
and cut the tree down. Mr. Mills started j
in to chop and James Kennard the deceased
was cutting bimbB out of the way preparing
to chop. Witness waa rubbing up some
tobacco in his hands and juat as witness
happened to raise hia eyes at one partioular
moment saw Kennard with his hand on the
muzzle of the rifle and a stream of fire iasu-
ng from the barrel, saw blood come out of
deceaseds head and face and he rolled off the
log. Went to pick him up and spoke to
him but deceased returned no answer.
Sent Mr. Mills to tell Mrs. Herring and asked Mrs. Plummer to go for
James Craig. Cut a trail to get
the body out and aa witness finished it
Mr. Kennedy came along and he helped
to pack the body to Mrs. Merrings. To the
coroner. Kennard has been out in this
oountry about three years, and belonged to
the County of Huron, Ontario.
The coroner briefly summed up the evidence and the jury after a short deliberation
returned a verdict of accidental death from
shooting by his own hand.
The funeral will take place to-morrow
from Mrs. Herrings house Englishman's
River. Rev. C. E. Cooper will read part of
the burial service at the house at
10 a. m., after which the body will
be taken to the Wellington cemetery for interment. The deoeased belonged to a lodge
of the I. 0. 0. F. in Huron county, and had
a six months' travelling card in his possession. Consequently the local lodge at Wellington, of which R. Kilpatriok is N. G.,
will meet the body about one mile from the
Summit hotel. The rest of the burial ceremony will be under their auspices.
Messrs. Thompson k Kilpatrick have
charge if the inleiment.

An elderly person in a pea-jacket,
with frizzy whiskers and a smell of
stale seaweed about him, was observed
on the beach at Asbury Park the other
day gathering driftwood. As fast as he
secured an armful of such flotsam and
jetsam he would carry it to the roadway on the other side of the board walk
and deposit it in a small wagon that
was attached to a cadaverous-looking
horse. Within less than an hour he had
a fair load, and a Washing-ton Star correspondent ventured to congratulate
him on getting" his firewood so easily
ami cheaply.
"Laying in your winter's supply?" he
remarked, interrogatively.
"Xaw, I aint," replied the man in the
pea jacket.
"Only some stuff for the kitchen fire?"
"You burn it, don't you?"
"Not much I don't."
"Isn't it good to burn?"
"What do you gather it for, then?"
"But you say that you do not burn it?"
"Why not?"
"Because I ain't no millionaire."
"You sell it, perhaps?"
"Who buys it?" j
"Rich folks." .  "i
"Up in Noo Yawk."
"Why should they purchase it?"
"Young feller," responded the person
in the pea jacket, removing an extra-
sized chew of tobacco from his mouth.
"I ain't got time to stand here all day
answerin' questions. Anybody that's
got sense oughter know that driftwood
is worth money nowadays. City folks
that kin afford the luxury burn it in
their fireplaces. It's the fashion at
present, because wli ?n it burns it makes
flames of all sorts of colors, sich as
jreen an' blue an' yaller an' red. It
looks pooty and so it fetches a high
price. What I collect along the beach
I sell to a woodyard here and it is
Shipped to Noo Yawk. Ordinary firewood is good enough fer me."
Much of the stuff that is sold as driftwood is not such in reality, being merely soaked in sulphate of copper and
other metallic salts, which in burning
produce vari-colored flames.
Any thoughtful person who takes
notice of the driftwood along the
beaches cannot but be astonished at the
enormous quantities of it that are
thrown up by the waves, particularly
during and after big storms. It seems
beyond imagining where all of it comes
from. But it must be remembered that
the oceans are vast: that the craft sailing upon them are innumerable, and
that whatever is set afloat finds its way
eventually to the shore. At the same
time only a small fraction of such material is actual wreckage from lost or
damaged vessels. Much of it represents
the debris of rotted piles which have
been destroyed by the teredo. The
bulkheads erected to resist the advance
of the breakers are continually being
washed away, thus adding a large contribution. Wherever there is wood
under the water it is attacked and
quickly disintegrated by the destructive
agencies, among which the teredo is
chief. Thus people who live by the sea
need rarely patronize the wood dealer
for fuel.
Ttie Old Legem! uf Hie "Standing Hock"
of North Dakota.
The Indian agency of Standing Rock,
located eleven miles north of the line
which divides the two Dakotas, takes
its name from a remarkable natural
formation���a lone rock which stands in
such a manner as to bear a strong resemblance to a human being. It is
even suid that a faint stretch of the
imagination gives the stone the outlines of a woman with a pappoose in
her arms. According to Indian tradition, in ages long past a young "buck,"
with his wife and baby, was journeying
through that region. At what is now
"Standing Rock" they met a compan}'
of Indians going smith. For several
days they feasted and danced together,
until finally the time came fur separating. The young married "buck" and
wife were on the way to visit some of
their people on the lakes lying to the
north, and when the main company
started off south he resolved to accompany them, leaving the heartbroken
squaw and baby to continue the journey alone, he having fallen violently in

A few days ago an elderly gentleman
and his wife came down Broadway together, says the New York World. A
lady crossing the street fell down. The
old gentleman rushed to her assistance
and helped her in every possible way.
When he returned to his wife she shook
her fist at him. "It's all right, it's
right," he whispered. "Yes, I know
it's all right," she replied, hotly.
"Here's an unknown woman falls down
and you plow across the street to help
her, and the other day I fell downstairs
and you wanted to know if I was practicing for a circus."

Model Plan to Hake Tidewater produce
Motive Force��� Millions of Horse Power
Mow Wasted tu be Rendered Useful for
Bis; Work.
Make tbe oceau tides serviceable to man!
The idea seems so preposterously colossal
tbat many at first glance will be inclined to
ridicule it. Still more erratic plans of inventors have succeeded ere this, and C. M. Bsrt-
lett, of Chicago, thinks be has succeeded in
accomplishing the task.
Briefly stated, Mr. Bartlett's idea is based
upon tbe law of gravitation, the incoutro-
veriiable (act tbat the fall of a body produces force. Hence he has come to the conclusion thnt the power of the ocean tide can
be made useful This is to be accomplished
by a compound system of reservoirs to be
constructed in ocean bays aud inlets more or
less i onfined by promontories of laud. The
practical operation I f this plan includes th i
use of turbine water wheel stripped of all its
ordinary attachments anil nearly turned inside out. Such a plan, Mr. Bartlett claims,
Is practicable and so simple in its construe
tion that ordinary intelligence can readily
comprehend it, while, on the other hand, ic
attracts the attention of the hydraulic engineer on account of its ingenuity.
Mr. Bartlett claims thnt there are along the
coast between Boston and New York a large
number of locations that contain all the way
from a thousand to ten thousand horse power
force, if the latter were developed by his system of compound reservoirs; that that section
Df the country can be run by the invention,
snd that the returns from the capital required for practical operation will double yearly.
In brief, Mr. Bartlett's nlanisas follows:
A dam two feet above high water mark la
tf first constructed across a tidal inlet between
two land promontories iu such a way as to
Inclose as large au area of water as possible
within the predetermined cost of construction. This space is then divided by a partition dam or crib work into two reservoirs
3f as nearly like capacity as possible on ac-
sount of the topograp.iy. In eaoh of these
two reservoirs, in the right angle Junction of
main and partition dam, a small reservoir
Is then constructed as indicated in the diagram. The small reservoir is designed to
increase the capacity of the large one adjacent to it by 35 per cent It is used only
it high water, supplies the machinery dir-
sctly from the oceau and reserves the water
In the main reservoir until the tide has lowered to the standing head j ol water upon
which the basis of power has originally been
Bgured. At this time the gates between tbe
ocean and the small reservoir are closed, and
the gates bi!iw""i tbe latter aud the large
reservoir are opened at low water. The outline cut beueath the diagram shows this system reversed.
The explanation of the diagram is simple.
A marks the ocean; B, the set of reservoirs
which are kept as full as possible; C, tbe re-
lervoirs kept as empty as possible, known in
engineering as "tail race;" D marks the
Boat; E, the siphon pipe; F, tbe inverted turbine wheel; H. the care; M, tbe crib work.
For such an arrangement Mr. Bartlett
A combination of reservoirs insuring a
constant fall of water iu one direction.
A combined float and siphon adjusting itself automatically to tbe rise and fall of water,
utilizing every inch of bead and dispensing
with tbe use of stationary gates and turbines.
The automatical balancing of tbe turbine
by placing it in an inverted position in the
upward flow of tbe siphon, thus opposing
the force of the stream to tbe gravity of the
wheel and shaft, and avoiding a larre
percentage of the friction and wear tbat constitutes the bete noir of hydraulic engineering
in placing turbines where gravity and tbe
force of the stream act in the same direction.
The inventor la willing, for the purpose
of a practical test in a large scale, to give
the first offer for a plant not exceeding 5,000
horse power the right to operate the same
during the lifetime of the patent tor $1, provided the plant is completed within one year.

How a Woodstoek  Boy  Was   Lost aad
Found In Mora Wars Than One.
Five years ago last summer, says tbe
0>"en Sound Advertiser, two Woodstock
hoys whose heads hid been turned by a
course of dime novels ran away from home
equipped with a revolver and a stock of
remarkable ideas about ths world. One of
these lads was Fred W. Bale, the son of a
well-to-do contractor in Woodstock, and
shout 15 years old. On leaving home bs
changed bis name to Wood. The pair
walked some twenty miles from home, and
then took the train to Port Elgin, thus
escaping detection. From Port Elgin
young 'Woo i" came over here, and was engaged by M. Forhan to work on his place,
where he stayed a year and a balf. He then
drove Cattle for Mr, Kennedy and other
buyers for a yoar or so. On the 1st of December, three years ago, he engaged with
Mr 0. A. Fleming as janitor of the Business College. Finding good metal in tbe
youth Mr. Fleming the following July apprenticed him in the College printing de
partment, where be reaally acquired the
business, and bids fair to be an excellent
printer. He has all along beena trusted and
valued member of his employer's household.
Whatever longings tbe youth may have felt
for home and friends bare beeu combated in
bis mind by a settled conviction tbat hia relatives could no longer care for him. No one
here knew tbat the name of Wood was an assumed one, though he made no secret of hav-
og run away from home when a boy. Two
weeks ago, however, in attending the
special services in the Disciples Church
young Bale experienced that marvellous
change which always sets tbe wanderer
back into right relationships, human and
divine. The aeoret could no longer be kept
but the poor fellow, still doubting hia welcome, wrote to his mother over the name
of C. Wood, asking if she would like to
hear news of her runaway son. Any
mother wbo reads this can imagine what
sort of an answer the first return mall
brought. The eager mother and family
could not await a response, and closely following the letter came young Mr. Bale to
learn what news be might regarding his
lost brother. He canvassed the different
families of Wood or Woods in town, and
was Anally set right by Archie Trout, of the
post offce, who went over with bim to tbe
Business College. We will leave our readers
to imagine tbe surprise with which he greeted bis brother and the genuine pleasure of
the meeting to both. That was a week
ago Saturday. The following Monday
Fred went home with bia brother, and,
after a week of happy re-union with his
relatives returned last night. Mr. Bale had
been out on the Pacific coast executing railway bridge contracts for the past three
years, and was not expected home at present,
but when tbe brothers reached Woodstock
they found the father there before them.
Fred deserves credit for the bravery with
which he has "roughed it," and the good
use he baa made of bis later opportunities.
Marvels In Photography.

As a result of some photographic experiments to determine the height of luminous
clouds, in Germany it was found that many
of them were 51 % miles above the sea level,
A time-tally device has been invented by
a Kansas man, which tells the photographer
when to remove his printing frame from
the sunlight. It has a clock and alarm bell
arranged in a box, on the face of which are
a number of boles, in which pins are inserted. These correspond to the frames, and
are aet twenty minutes ahead of the time,
and an alarm bell rings at the end of thai
time. Allowance has to be made for cloudy
A wonderful process waa recently shown
before the British Association for the Advancement of Science. It is called by the
inventor the "primuline process," and is
tbuB described, primuline, by the way, being
a newly discovered product of coal tar:
Into an Iron basin containing warm water
a few grains of primuline are thrown and
dissolved. A white cotton cloth placed
therein Is soon dyed yellow. After being
wrung out, the cloth Is placed behind a
trauslucent flexible colored picture in a
frame with a white backing, and exposed
to a dull light for ten minutes. The colors
produced in the priut are highly artistic,
resembling those seen on India silks, and
having a light gray background. . Tbe pictures look as if colored by hand, and such
a power of producing coiors by photography
has never before been seen. A purple tone
can be given by first soaking tbe cloth or
plate in a solution of nitrate of soda and
acetic acid. It is the opinion of experts
that this new process will to some extent
supersede th* blue-print process, as the
prints are not affected by light, add* or
alkalis; and experiment, show that tha
newly-disoovered primuline is equally aen-
eitiv* with chloride of ailver.
The Height or the Cloud*.
Prof. Moller ot Carlsrube bat made
some interesting observations on slouds.
The highest clouds, oirrus and cirrostratus,
rise on an average to the height of nearly
30,000 feet. Tbe middle clouds keep at from
10,000 feet to 23,000 feet in height, while
the lower clouds reaoh to between 3,000
and 7,000 feet. The cuniuloua clouds float
with their lower surface at a height of
from 4,000 to 5,000 feet, while their summits
rise to 16,000 feet The tops of tbe Alps are
often hidden by clouds of tbe third elasa,
but the bottom of the clouds of the second
class, and especially of the thunder clouds
often enfolda them. Tbe vertical dimensions of a cloud observed by Prof. Moller on the Nettleborgj was over 1,200 feet;
he stepped out of it at a height of about
3,700 feet, and high above the mountain
floated clouds of tbe middle class, while
veils of mist lap in the ravines and clefts.
Tho upper clouds were growing thicker
while th* lower ones were dissolving, and
soon it began to rain and snow.���New York

"The output from the New Vancouver
Coal Company's mines yesterday,"says
the Nanaimo Free Press, "was the largest output that has yet been obtained.

that in about twelve months from now
the output will reach about four thousand tons per day."
One of the principal requisities of a
sealing schooner's outfit is necessarily
the boats, and the purchase of these is a
chief item of expense. In the past, the
custom has been generally to buy boats
in the east, or else in California, and
the majority of the Victoria fleet carry
these foreign-made articles. Three seasons ago, Captain Dodd, of the Maggie
Mac., tried the experiment of having his
boats built here, and the result has far
exceeded his expectations. The home
manufactured craft were found tougher
and more lasting than the American
made, and were the envy of the United
States' skippers, who compared them
with their own. There are now
two or three builders in Victoria
who cater almost exclusively to this
trade, and turn out first-class work only.
These are Mr. Jones, Mr. John Robinson
and a new firm from Toronto. Mr.
Robinson, who is a pioneer in the trade,
is just now busy with a new 20-foot
double-ender for the Maggie Mac. built
of cedar throughout, with ash braces.
It has a small, raised keelson, over
which the timbers pass, giving greater
rigidity and allowing water to run down
under the floor. Every part of the boat
is copper fastened in the surest and
best style. As soon as this one is completed, the construction of six boats for
the new schooner Maud S. will be entered upon, these requiring to be finished before March. The Toronto firm is
also full of orders, and the industry is
assuming 'very substantial proportions.���

Nanaimo had the ditch behind them in the
first half and took the kick off which was
well returned and for a few minutes the play
was kept near Nanaimo's twenty-five.
Gordon for Victoria had a wild shot at goal,
the ball going behind the line. From the
kick out Nanaimo took the ball down to
Victoria's goal. A. Thompson came very
near scoring, so much so that several of the
spectators thought he had scored, but the
ball struck a lump of anow and went behind
ths line. Boyd took the kick and shortly
after Victoria had a free kick from a foul.
The play here was very even the
ball only travelling up the ground
to travel back again. Presently
Viotoria got a free kick and the ball after
it had passed up and down two or three
times from a loose scrimmage in front of
Victoria's goal, went behind. From the
kick off the ball was pasaed tc Thompaon
who took it down, and centred to Strain
who missed the pass but Victoria coming
with a burst brought the ball right up the
ground and had a wild shot at goal. Nanaimo obtained a free kick from a foul which
returned the ball to Victoria's twenty-five,
and here the ball went into touch. Nanaimo threw in and from the throw Thompson obtained the ball and passed to Strain,
a good pass, in front of goal who
scored the first goal for Nanaimo
Shortly after the kick-off Victoria obtained
a free kiuk, and getting possession of the
ball, R. Wilson ('!) had a shot at goal, which
was headed over by Nanaimo, giving Victoria a corner kick. From the corner the
ball was dropped in front of goal. Nanaimo
kicked it out, but Cartwright got it and
hail a very long and strong shot at goal, the
ball striking the cross bar and falling baok
in the field, whence it was quickly taken
down to Victoria's twenty-five and
travelled up and down the field
nntil half time. The teams changed
ends, and from the kick-off the ball waB
passed to A. Thompson, who took it up the
neld, shot at goal and soored within three
minutes of the kick-off. From this on for
some twenty minutes Nanaimo had much
the best of the play. After some long passing, Strain acored the third -goal for Nanaimo, taking four shot' to do ao. A pain from
the kick-off the ball came up to Victoria's
goal, and Thompaon shot, but Boyd saved.
Indeed, Boyd had his hands fall, and held
his job down in first-elf ss style, saving shot
after shot. Gray had a try, but
failed to score. Victoria had a free kick
and took the ball int i Nanaimo's twenty
five, and aftor some little play about half
way tbe ball came right up to Victoria's
goal. Fisher shot and scored the fourth
goal for Nanaimo. Victoria seemed to wake
np now and played with a determination not
showen before in the second half, Field saving a shot by Thompson. Victoria took the
ball into Nanaimo's goal, and Wilson had a
shot at goal, whioh gave Victoria a corner.
From the oorner Nanaimo took the ball
baok to Victoria's ground, when time was
called, leaving Nanaimo winner of the
match by four goals to nothing.

Hornets vs. Now Westminster.
The match yesterday at New Westminster drew but a meagre attendance of spectators. The opposing teama lined up at
3:30 the Hornets playing down hill. New
Westminster set the ball in motion which
was well returned into mid-field where a
scrimmage was formed. The Hornets soon
took the ball into the homes' twenty-
five and the New Westminsters defended stubbornly, It was now apparent that the Hornets had a hard
tight before them for the first 20 minutes of
the game was well contended. From a line-
out the ball was well thrown out and
Bamford got possession, scoring a try clone
to the poets, which Woodburn converted into
a goal. Half time was immediately called.
On the resumption of the game the Hornets increased the vigor of their play, and
had slightly the best of it. From a scrimmage in the centre ot the field the Hornets
broke away with a splendid dribble. Chud-
wood getting the ball, secured a try, which
Woodburn failed to improve. From the
drop-out the Westminster forwards
rushed the ball to the Hornets'
line, where a terrible scrimmage was
formed, bat try as they would they were
unable to get the ball across ths line. The
Hornets gradually worked the ball to the
oentre of the field. Miller secured the ball
and made a splendid run, but was pulled
down close to the line and shortly after
time was called, the Hornets standing the
victors by one goal and a try to nil. Those
on the field say that the game was splendidly
contested from start to finish. The forwards of both teama were very evenly
matched. The Hornets showed to better advantage from behind the scrimmage. Riley
at full back had lets of work to do, which
he did very creditably.
