Paris, Jan. 10.���The trial of Vaillant, the
anarchist, who threw the bomb into Ihe
Chamber of Deputies, opened to-day. The
police closely guarded the Palace of Justice
where the trial was in progress. Every
door of the palace was guarded by fixed
bayonets. The prisoner was the object of
intense interest. He was evidently entirely
self-possessed and gazed about unconcerned.
The prisoner give his age as 32 year*;, aud
answered questions calmly aud ieaddy.
Judge Ctssel, who presided, reviewed Vail-
lant'u alleged crime. He s.ii tne people
who had been hurt most were not the members of the Chamber of Deputies, but the
spectators of the proceedings.
"That was not my fault," retorted Vaillant. "The deputies are in the highest
degree responsible for the actual misery
prevailing. It was them I meant should
feel the responsibility!" The prisoner denied any attempt to escape from the Chamber, and declared energetically that he did
not wish to flee. Vaillant emphatically
denied that he had taken the wife and property of Marchant. When asked how he
became possessed of the money found on
him, he replied that burglarizing brought
him 100 francs. In telling cf the past Vaillant admitted he had been condemned five
times for petly thefts, and added that men-
dacity and thefts were the necessary results
of the present social condition of the poor.
He said he placed the nails in the bomb in
order to wound and not to kill.
Vaillant was found guilty and sentenced
to death. When the sentence was passed
upon him he shouted "Vive l'anarchie!"
The Times' Comment.
London, Jan 10.���The times commenting
on the relations between the United Statea
and Hawaii says: "Amerioan political men
argue that owing to the Hawaiian queen's
dilatoryjconduet, President Cleveland's off*-*r
to procure lier restoration ij'no longer good.
That may be true, but will auch a piece of
pettifogging commend itself to the judgment of the American people? Tbe president has deolared himself prepared to cooperate in any legislative plan consistant
with American integrity and morality. Can
the recognilion of a government described
by the president himself as imposed by force
and fraud form part of such a plan. The
president's offer may indeed have lapsed by
the effluxion of time, but the moral grounds
on which he based it cannot have vanished,
even in the stress of American politics, in
less than a month."
They Haven't tho Experience.
London, Jan. 10.���The Right Hon. A. B.
Forwood, M.P., who was secretary to the
Admiralty during the last administration of
Lord Salisbury, made a speech in answer to
Mr. Prescott this evening, in whioh he referred to the behavior of the warship Resolution in the storm in the Bay of Biscay.
As a member of the Board of the Admiralty,
under which the Resolution was built, he
said he knew that special care had been
taken in her construction, but her maiden
voyage was made in the depth of winter
and with a grr.en crew. No precaution had
been taken to secure loose fittings and close
apertures when she put to sea, therefore the
first storm she encountered sent tons of
water below. He ridiculed the idea that
she returned to Queenstown on acoount of
laok of coal. The whole affair, he added,
confirmed his opinion that naval officers,
while experts in gunnery and theoretical
navigation, and full of pluck and devotion
to the service, nevertheless do not have
sufficient experience in the handling of bij
ships io bad weather, such as can be gainei
on the Atlantic liuers.

AN AUSTRALIAN GOLD FIELD.
The Scene of the Latest Boom���A Country
Cursed With Heat, Drought and Barrenness is Coolgardle - An Utterly
God-Forsaken Land.
' (By One Just Back.)
Coolgardie ! The name which has been in
so many mouths as the coming EPDorado���
whioh is even now quickening the pulse of
the Melbourne and Adelaide Stock Exchanges ana causing the brokers to smile
once more.
A land nf wearisome rnnnnt.npv.of crooked
scrub, of sal colonrl hii-hei*, ol low, ll.it-
crested ridges, of an nil-pervading and pene-
tratinp smell (something like roasting coffee)
which no one who has sojourned in South
western Australia ever forgets. A land of
melancholy but, strange to say, of a glory
of wild flowers. A blaze of exaggerated
marguerites, of wondrouB immortelles. Y'el
low, white and red, they mock the starving
stock with a semblance of herbage. For it
is a fodderless land, this grassless, water
less waste, hanging on to the skirts of the
greater desert to the eastward.
Even in paradoxical Australia it seems
like a cynical criticism of Fate that this unpromising area should have been selected as
the scene of the latest gold-craze. Even
still more paradoxical is the fact which
everywhere confronts the visitor from the
e��et, that, whilst in Sydney, Melbourne,
Adelaide, etc., hun'iretltt believe that a sure
fortune awaits them in this nursling of the
wild/**, hun**!rrds 'ire there wondering how
the} will 6ez out of it. G^uii meu, tried
pioneers who have known hardship in the
fever-haunted gullies of the Palmer and the
diamond fields of South Africa, are there.
Fresh-faced new chums with wondrous outfits, including soft leather bags studded
with numberless pookets to hold the gold
they were bound to pick up within twenty-
four hours after arrival, are there���all emulous to leave the place. At the present moment, in this field of shreds and patches, for
oue lucky man there are more than a hundred unfoitunates. The few finds of undeniable richness, which can be counted on the
fingers, hive exercised the usual false glamour, uud somewhere about -1,000 people
are now pondering why on eaith they ever
came to such a God-forsaken country.
Bear this fact in mind, the province is being well and carefully advertised. The
farmers of Nor i ham and York are getting
dream prices for horse feed, for, between
Doodlekine and Coolgardie you could flog
the proverbial grasshopper. No Westralian
would say a word in depreciation of the
goldfields, yet, aB a rule, he does not go
there himself, but "talks big" about the
"other siders" coming there; meantime, he
makes them pay. The difficulty at present
disturbing the minds of the Westralians is,
how to make as much as possible out of the
eastern Gentile, and yet proclaim to I he
world that he is an intiuder and an annoyance.
Doodlekine (pronounced Dood-lekine), the
present terminus of the railway, is somewhere about 100 miles from York. Most
travellers are familiar with the appearance
of the temporary termini of railways in the
course of construction. Doodlekine is lik
all others, only a little worse.
The horse teams carrying between here
and Southern Cross make it their depot. As
a rule, the teams are good, and the road,
since the people of this part are at last
leaving off the time-honored custom of driving six hoists tandem, are iu fair order.
The wise man puts his swag on a team,
trusts to his legs, and finally arrives at his
destination. The foolish man trusts to the
coach, which probably breaks down and is
stranded half way.
The surroundings of a bush-road in Western Australia are of one uniform pattern.
Dingy scrub, parched bushes, wild flowers,
and a camping place at some brackish native
well'which civilization has opened out and
enlarged. At times a naked dome of granite
rises above the sea of scrub and it is at the
feet of these rock-hills that the native wells
are usually found. At Southern Cross there
are a very passable hotel, five quartz-batteries, and the dregs of a fast/ disappearing
community. When the railway is completed to Southern Cross the "patient"
camel comes on the scene. Between the
Cross and Doodlekine grow poisonous
shrubs, hurtful to his system, so the patient
one does not carry there.
The camel in Western Australia is an ill-
conditioned, mangy horror, with a temper
as short as his ooat. At any period of the
day, if he can safely bite a piece out of you,
or kick you in the stomach, he does so at
onoe. At dawn he commences to whine
and curse profanely in his own language,
and continues his bla*��| heuiy all through the
process of loading. Pill a postage stamp on
his back over and abuse the load he usually
carries, and he would sooner die and give
you the trouble of disposing of his corpse
than get up. It is only when you become
acquainted with a camel that you appreciate
the loveable qualities of horse, bullock, or
dog.
Coolgardie proper (meaning thereby the
nucleus of a township where there is some
semblance of a street) is about three-quarters
of a mile from the famous Bay ley's Reward
claim. The storekeepers and water-carriers
do a fairly good trade; the publicans are
not so lucky. One policeman represents law
and order, and he has not yet been able to
run in a single "drunk." Most old miners
will gauge the prosperity of the place from
this fact. Living is bad. Flour, tea, sugar
and tinned provisions are fairly plentiful;
but wholesome, eatable meat (fresh or sal')
is scarce, and the detestable quality of I he
priceless water ruins all attempts at deceii
cookery.
Everything is salt. The land is impregnated with it throughout. Ono can easily
imagine that Coolgardie was but recently
the bottom of an extremely salt sea. Tho
water struck at Bay ley's at the 160 foot
level, which strike was telegraphed widely
and triumphantly, is salt and a condenser is
at work. All around are strings of salt-puns
and chains of salt lakes, and if gold were as
plentiful as salt, the most exaggerated accounts of the oountry would not attain tbs
true state of the case.
And the gold? Bayley's, as the show reef
of the country, naturally comes first. There
are here good comfortablo buildings for men,
a modest machine capable of putting through
two or three hundred weight per 'lay, which
stone has, up to now, averaged 500 ounces
to the ton. It is a ball mill, worked hy
of wood fuel.   The mine is no doubt
a phenomenal one. On top there is a big
outblow of white quartz; the reef, averaging seven feet iu width, can be traced for
about half a mile. The underlie is to east-
wild, which is a peculiar feature of this
part of Western Australia. Where the
reef has been opened up there is little
change in the formation visible, only reins
of ironstone are found along the outside,
and patches of the same intrude in places.
This now world-famous reef has been opened
up by means of an open cutting, and there
is gold showing plainly in all the faces, in
some places of almost marvellous richness.
Still, the accounts wired east have grown
rather in transit. The statement that there
is 1,000 at grass is absurd, and anyone who
would venture to say that there was ��100,.
000 worth of gold in siglit would be���of a
confident disposition There are about
thirty-four men at present employed on it.
At Tindall's, two and a half miles from Bay-
ley's, there is a rich reef being worked, and
at Hum.mi's Rush three reefs are being
opened out. The reBt of the oountry is
simply pegged out, and the owners of
the claims are fors'eking around with
sheath-knives waiting to sell. Tnis is Coolgardie.
Right away to Cashmau's, forty-five mil* s
distant, to the shores of Lake Barlee, ninety
miles to the northeast, the more or less
hard up and thirBty population are distribut.
ed. That gold is there cannot be gainsaid, -
but the prizes are small and the blanks infinite. Ii has been commonly asserted east
that Boz. and 3oz. reefs are lying idle, waiting for aomeone to come and take them up.
In realty there are more men there banging
desperately on to poorer reefing shows than
are to be found on any other field in Australia. There is actually no alluvial wash,
properly so-called, throughout the country.
The gold is shed about the surface uninfluenced by the action of water. All the
alluvial work is done by dry blowing. A
man with two dishes, a strong wind and a
cloud of dust, haB usurped the old conventional picture of tho prospector panning
out at a waterhole.
Tbe formation of the country and its con-
tout* differ greatly from the ordinary run of
Australian fields. It appears to have been
a low tableland covered with cement; the
denudation caused by the scanty rainfall
has been only sufficient to hollow out shallow valleys in which there are neither
creeks nor watercourses; the drainage of
the country is simply represented by saline
bogs. Away to the north of Coolgardie is a
great expanse of flat granite rock, all over
which are circular hollows, sometimes three
feet in diameter and eight or ten iu depth,
in every way resembling the wave-worn
holes on a rocky coast. In fact, everything
about Coolgardle suggests a later submergence than the rest of Australia. Throughout the gold-bearing belts, clay slates with
veins of hornblend schist mark the formation. The question of water supply during
the coming summer is just now the vital one.
Even ut one shilling par gallon there is no
certainty of procuring it when you want it,
aud W. A. Government officials move with
more than the usual exasperating apathy.
To this th* re is one shining exception in the
person of Mr. Renno, the chief hydraulic
engineer. He has tackled the water question heart and soul, and vows that if all else
fails he will erect condensers on the shores
of the salt lakes. The difficulty is no ordinary one, for the water got by sinking is salt,
and to form reservoirs for possible showers
would probably result in the water so caught
soon turning salt. However, Mr. Renno
has had a Queensland tiaining which has
lifted him above tlio jog-trot of W. A., so
he may strike out something.
Socially, the field has an originality of its '
own. As beforesaid there is no drinking,
and the common attraction of gold has
drawn together men from all parts of the
world, so that the chances of meetiug an acquaintance you last djned with in London or
Samoa are favorable. The rich but patchy
nature of the deposits, and the absence of
any wide dispersion of the gold point to the
fact that the field will be a stockbroker's
and not a miner's field. Phenomenal crushing, specimens such as that found at Tindall's���10 lb. in weight with only one small
speck of quartz in it���will boom particular
reefs; but the fortunes will not be made on
the field itself. Let uo man dream of going
there who has not enough money to keep
himself going for twelve months and pay his
passage back. For such a one who is content to sacrifice a year of bis life in putting
in as rough a time as it is possible to experience anywhere in Australia, there is a
fair chance; for the poor and destitute there
is nothing but lingering starvation.
Whatever hardships men have had to endure on other gold-fields are accentuated at
Coolgardio. Every bile of horse-feed and
every drop of water haa to be can ied many
miles, for tho earth there yields nothing but
salt. The mining regulations are more lenient thau in the other provinces, and this,
las! will probably only heighten the gamble. Protection can be obtained on nearly
any rxcus*', which accounts for the great
.!-*-(>��� ce nf work done. This is the staggerer
whi'-l* greets the stranger. What cause is
theie for this rush? Apparently none, when
you get there.���Melbourne Bulletin.

A   CORRESPONDENT'S   VIEWS
Of the Encounter at Warina Between
French and British Troops.
Harold Frederic cabled from London on
Sunday morning: Suddenly, and if not from
a clear sky, at least from an unexpected
quarter of the horizon, a lightning flash has
startled Europe. There has been some
strange night encounter between English
and French forces in the bush up the river
in the Niger valley in that vague Hinterland between Sierra Leone and Senegambia.
Three well known English officers with sixteen black Boldiers in British uniform have
been killed by French weapons, The original report from Sierra Leone, both to the
news agency and to the Foreign Office,
ascribe the action to a mistake on the
part of the French who are said to have
taken negroes of a West India regiment,
despite their uniforms, for savage natives. To put it mildly, this explanation
impresses London as quite "too thin."
and skepticism is all the more easy because
for years back a number of French officers
along the upper Niger, notably Lieut. Mi/.-
on.have displayed the utmost rancor toward
the English and have been boldly taking on
their initiative a line of hostility which the
French foreign office has been forced to disavow. Mizon returned to Paris a few
months ago and told his side of the story
which both the English and Belgian officials in the Niger country denounced as a
pack of lies, but which so took the Parisian
fancy that Mizon became the hero of the
hour and the Parisian press bullied the
foreign office into a tacit promise that hereafter French interests in the debatable
Hinterland should be more vigorously
looked after. These antecedent circumstances raise a tolerably substantial
presumption against the theory that
the catastrophe at Warina was
due to an innocent mistake, but
in spite of this feeling the
London papers speak very guardedly of
the matter. Ministerial papers like the
Daily News and Chronicle are a trifle more
alarmist in tone than the Times and the
Tory organs, while evening papers of all
shades counsel cool heads and patience till
it is seen what the French will do. So far
as one hears from Paris there are only brief
press comments pitched in a rather careless
key and foreshadowing a position that the
fail* was with the Britiah because their
troops were not on Britiah territory. The
a-nger is not ao much that the French
foreign office desires to avoid au apology and
r reparation as that the furious anti-English
spirit iu Pa.u wil i nun commotion
whioh will coerce the foreign office into
making difficulties against its will. This
was the case in the Siam difficulty, and the
present is recognized by everybody to be u
far graver affair.

It Has Looal Application.
Under the heading of "Courtesy to the
Press," the Vancouver World makes the following pertinent remarks: "Occasionally���
it might be said very frequently���promoters
of local entertainmenls fail to extend ordinary courtesies to the press. No intimation
is given of the event, no invitation is extended to a representative to be present, and
then, when the affair is over, surprise is felt
because no report of the proceedings is published. The popular idea that newspaper
men get their life's enjoyment out of attending socials, concerts and dinners, is a grave
mistake. Such events constitute the daily
labor of the scribes and it is solely in the
performance of their duty as news gatherers
that they seek admission to those places. If
no invitation is extended to the press to
attend, it is taken for granted that a
report of the proceedings is not desired.
While it is impossible for a newspaper to be
represented at every entertainment or meeting that transpires, an invitation to be
present serves as a reminder to the staff and
largely obviates the likelihood of the item
being missed in the daily category of news.
The World is only too pleased to publish
accounts of every event of interest transpiring in the commodity. But when societies or clubs, holding meetings or entertainments, omit to extend the usual courtesies to this office, the members should
not complain if their omission is accepted as
an intimation that the proceedings are
private."

THE PROPOSED    ADDITIONS    TO
THE NA VY.
A Plymouth despatch saya: "The Admiralty have resolved on building four first-
class battleships of similar design to the
Magnificent and Majestic at a cost of ��1,
000,000 each. The armament of the new
vessels will include four twelve-inch breech
loaders of new type, twelve six-inch quick
firing guns and several smaller guns, including twelve Hotchkisa and several Maxims.
The new ships will be provided with extra
coal capacity, which will enable them to
remain at sea longer than any battleship
previously built. A new type of gunboat,
similar to the Torch and Alert, will be introduced by the Admiralty, and probably
four will be built at a cost of �� SO. 000 each.
They will be designated as station gunboat b
and will c&iry a fine modern armament, but
will not be of great speed. The new navy
estimates will al-o provide that work on
the construction of the cruisers Powerful
and Terrible shall be proceeded with at
once. The Terrible will be lhe largest,
swiftest and most powerful cruiser in existence. The estimates also provide for a dozen
torpedo destroyers, making au addition to
the navy of thirty-two.''
This all seems very well, and no doubt
the new line-of battle ships, cruisers and
gun boats are all needed to keep the navy
at its proper strength, but it seems to us
that the Admiralty is very forgetful of the
lesson taught >>y the ramming of the line-of
battle ship Victoria by the Camperdown off
the coast of Syria last autumn. That un
fortunate accident proved two thiogs; first,
what terrible weapons these heavy iron clad
rams are, and how fatal the blow they are
capable of delivering; and secondly, that
rams as at present constructed are not
strong enough. The Camperdown sent the
Victoria and her crew to the bottom in less
than fifteen minutes, but the ram was her
self bo injured by the blow that she had at
once to go into dock for repairs. If it had
been an actual sea fight in which she had
rammed the Viotoria, she would at once,
owing to the damage she had received from
the violence of the Bhock, have been render
ed hors tl- combat, and ii surrounded by
enemies might not have been able to with
draw. What the British fleet teems specially
in need of, in addition to the line-of-battle
ships now ordered, is a number of rams,
specially designed for ramming the enemy's
hattle ships and for little else, carrying
each one or two heavy guns, and having
their bow- so strengthened J*y cross girders
of steel, that the blow one of them would
deliver, while fatal to an enemy's ship, no
matter how powerful, would not damage
itself. A vessel of thiB sort could be built
and armed for about one-fourth the cost of a
line-of-battle ship. We think that every
British squadron should comprise a number
of rams of this sort, and that with their
help a powerful British fleet would be piac
tieally invincible by any foreign fleet now
afloat.
Presides! Cleveland and tho provisional
government of Hawaii have now fairly joined
issue. Presided', I .'levclm.il haB told them
to clear ou*; they say they won't. It will
be interesting to see who will prove the
���tronger���President Cleveland, or the
revolutionary government set up by ex-
Minister Stephens, with the help of a com
pany of marines, drafted from a U. S. ship
of war in Honolulu harbor.
A dispatch which was published in the
Seattle Post-Intelligencer of yesterday and
which is dated Chicago, December 8, says
that the World's Fair ia on fire. It appears
that the fire started in the casino, east of
the agricultural building and south of the
peristyle. The origin of the fire is said to
have been in revenge on the part of a
couple of tramps. The total loss to exhibits
waa estimated at ten o'clock on the night of
the 8th by President Higginbotham at not
more than $100,000. Further details will
be awaited with interest.
Sib Mortimer Durand and Mayor Pyne,
who have been representing British interests
in Afghanistan at the oourt of the Ameer for
several years, have returned to London.
Both a ty there is nothing to fear in Afghanistan from Russian intrigues, as the
Ameer desires the friendship of Great
Britain. Mayor Pyne describes the journey
of the Russian General Vanrovsky across a
portion of Afghanistan when  Sir Mortimer
waa en route to Cabul as a bluff with a view
to thwarting the British mission, and finding it impossible to do so, the Russians retired in disgust.
Hon. Edward Blake is sending round
the hat in Toronto for subscriptions in aid
of tbe I'ish parliamentary party. A list has
been opened, and $5,500 already subscribed.
How anxious Mr. Blake and his friends are
to place Ireland under the rule of the
priests, supported by the rabble! Educated
Irishmen of all denominations, the Roman
Catholic priests and a few unscrupulous
politicians alone excepted who for years
have made a more or Ubs easy living by
agitation, oppose Home Rule. Daniel
O'Connell, the son of the Liberator, is a
noted example of thi-s. He does not scruple
to declare that Gladstone's Home Rule
bill, if it became law, would ruin
Ireland. And it is tor such fellows aB we
have described, who live by agitation, and
who have kept Ireland disturbed in order
that they might live, who have belied and
slandered Biitish rule in Ireland in their
communications to the American preBS for
many years past, and who coutinue to do so
with if possible ever increasing venom, that
the Hon. Edward Blake is soliciting subscriptions in Cinada. Truly a noble mission
for a Canadian Protestant to engage in���to
try and put the Irish Protestants under the
feet of the Roman Catholic priests, who are
known aa the most bigoted of their class, and
to raise to power a lot of political adventurers and agitators who are distinguished
mainly by their utter unset npulousness and
by the strength and fury of their hatred
against England and British rule generally.
Subscriptions are wanted to maintain these
men while they pursue their work of agitation and slander of British rule, and Mr.
Blake is not ashamed to ask Canadians to
contribute it!
THE   BRAZILIAN SQUABBLE.
Mello Still  Sick-A  Crisis  Imminent-
Wholesale Destruction.
New York, Jan. 10 ���The Herald's Montevideo cable says: News from Rio states
that Admiral Mello's flagship, the Aquidaban, with the R-publica, are off Santa Cal-
hama. Mello is still ill. The Government
has received within the last two days a protest from the head of the diplomatic corps
against the danger the warships of the several nations are exposed to by the explosion
of shells and shots from the rival combat
ants. In commenting on this protest foreigners and natives ask why foreign ships
remain in exposed positions. Th-i anchorage they select affords an opportunity for the rebel ships to lie behind
them, this bringing the foreigners directly
in the line of fire. It is suggested that the
foreign vessels should move their position
and give the government au opportunity to
fire on the rebel fleet. It is reported that
the commanders of foreign vessels have notified Admiral de Gama that he must not use
his big guns on the city. This procedure is
farcial as the missiles from the machine
guns are more harmful in action. The big
Krupp gun in Fort San Juan, it is said, has
been rendered useless owing to the excessive
number of shots that have been fired from
it. This is generally credited as the
big gun has been silent for several days.
The government continues to mount heavy
and light artillery on the heights of Nictheroy, and also in the city of Rio. It seems
ag if a crisis was imminent. A foreigner
who has just returned to the city from
Nictheroy reports that at least2,000persons
in that place have been wounded and are in
the hospitals. The destruction of houses
there during the last month has been very
great.
New York, Jan. 10.���A morning paper
says: The Red Line steamship Maracaibo,
which was scheduled to sail for Venezuela
yesterday was hoarded by superintendent
Iullett of that line a few minutes before the
hour for sailing, and the startling discovery
was made that three hundred thousand
rifles and cartridges were stored in the
ship's forehatch. The smuggled ammunition was destined for Admiral Mello, to be
delivered at Curacoa, and was consigned as
"soap." The chief engineer of ihe vessel
and first mate have confessed their guilt in
placing the cartridges on board the ship,
and say they intended to sell them to emissaries of the insurgents. The cases containing cartridges were seized by the superintendent of the steamship company and
placed on the dock.
Toronto Topics.
Toronto, Jan 10 ���In a further letter to
the press Hon. Eward Blake, M.P., announces that it lias been decided to make an
appeal to Irish syinpu'liizcrs in Toronto.
Hon. Frank Smith and Hon. S. H. Blake
are the treasurers. A list has been opened
with the following subscriptions: Frank
Smith, $1,000; (Jeo. I) Keliy, $1,000; Edward Blake, $1,000; Hugh Ryan, $1,000;
and Thomas Long, $1,500 Mr. Blake has
accepted an invitation to speak in Boston on
January 31,
Policeman John A Carlton has been
arrested on the charge of personating, under
un assumed name, certain rich people who
recently died in Australia. The amount involved is $80,000. Call ton says he ia innocent of the charges.

A lively runaway took place at Northfield

Victoria, Jan. 10.���[Speoial.]���Judg.
ment is to be delivered to-morrow in the
celebrated salvage suit of Dunsmuir vs.
bark Harold. The Harold tried to make
tbe inner passage \u clearing Rice Rocks
and caught in tneitfraoe." She floated with
the tide and the tug Lome towed her to
Esquimalt dock. The point at issue is
whether she freed herself or the Lome freed
her. If the former, the tr.g will get about
$50 towage fees; if the latter atout $15,000
as salvage.
The candidates for mayoralty and alder-
manic honors closed a brief but lively campaign at a monster meeting in the Oity Hall
this evening. . Though John Teague is not
conspicuous in the arena o' municipal politics, he is expected to give Mayor Beaven a
hard run. In the North Ward the favorites are Baker, Bragg and Ledingham. Mc-
Killican, Styles and Vigelins are expected
to go in the Centre Ward aud Mann, Wilson
and Harris had no opposition in the South
Ward.
The District Lodge, Loyal Orange Association, transacted its annual business at
Saanich yeBterday, and adjourned to meat

Muoh surprise was felt here ut the untimely death of Maaager Stout of the Dominion Express office at Vancouver, the
news of whioh was received this evening.
Stout had worked uutil late in the night
settling affairs in his charg-i, aud then fired
a shot iuto his bieast just below the heart.
The chief witness is John P. Stout, the
clerk in the office, who had spoken to the
deceased only a short time previous to the
tragedy, and who declined to tell the story
to any but the ooroner at the inquest, the
report of which is not yet available. Stout
was well known and respected here.
The Rush to Coolgardie.
Victoria, Jan. 10.���[Special.]���Australian advices to hand by steamer Warrimoo
show that the gold fever continues to tempt
men to face the terrors of thirst and heat in
an attempt to cross the trackless and waterless waste guarding the treasures of the
Coolgardie region. This is the centre of
what is known as the Ycgwn district, whioh
itself is but one of five gold fields, that although rot, worked have already made
[) names for themselves. Though several
thousand persons have gathered about Cool-
gardie.so immense is the auriferous area that
only the most oursory searoli has yet been
made. At points all over the territory of
13,000 square miles gold has been found,
both alluvial and in reefs, and it is only the
fatal absence of water that has prevented
the establishment of the greatest mining
camps in the world.
Reports of finds by some explorers read
like fairy tales. Almost the only means of
separating the gold in the drifts has beeu by
"blowing," yet Bayley, the discoverer of
Coolgardie, tells how in one month his party
collected two hundred ounces, and that at
last coming on the reef, they gathered
fifty ounces of gold in one evening. Next
day they took out six hundred ounoes from
the cap of the reef and in another forty
hours gathered five hundred add twenty-
eight ounces more, the only means for extracting the gold being to knock the stuff
out and doing it with pestlo and mortar.
The want of water, however, surrounds
the gold fields like a w%U of fire and efforts
are being made by the Government of the
colony to find subterranean reservoirs, which
will make possible the development of the
continuous belt of gold territory connecting
its northern with its southern boundary and
embraoing the five gold fields of Yelgarn,
Murcheson, Ashburton, Kilbarry and Kim.

San Francisco, Jan. 9.���Steamer Gaelic
���ailed for China this afternoon and in consequence there was considerable excitement
on the mail dock. Armed men guarded all
the gang planks aod kept watch over the
Chinese quarters. There were 62 Mongolians on board who had been deported from
Texas and from information received by the
collector, it was feared that the Chinese
here would make an attempt to get some of
them ashore. No attempt was made, how
ever, and the steamer got away with the
entire contingent besides several remanded

San Francisco, Jan. 10.���The steamer
City of Peking, from Hong Kong and Yokohama via Honolulu, which place she was
scheduled to leave on the afternoon of the
2nd instant, had not arrived up to 10:30
thia morning.
The cutter Corwin still lies at anohor off
San Quentiu. Attempts to botrd her or to
get Captain Munger tc talk on the report
from Washington that the Corwin has been
ordered to return to Honolulu with new instructions for Willis, have, like other attempts during the pa..t few days, proved unsuccessful. No one is allowed to approaoh
the cutter and the officers and men are
denied shore leave.
A special to the Examiner from Washington states that President Cleveland has
issued new instruction** to Minister Willis
and the same are to bo sent by the revenue
cutter Corwin, which has been ordered to
Honolulu. They are believed to be that
foreign powers at Honolulu are to be notified that no interference will be allowed in
the present situation on the islands. Willis,
it is also understood, is not to use force to
restore the queen unle i foreign powers
interfere, or riots should occur which would
render it neoessary to land armed forces to
protect American interests.
TBE DOMINION CAPITAL.
Ottawa, Jau. 10.���An important judgment affecting he Canadian patent law was
delivered by Judge Burbridge yesterday. It
was in the case of the Queen v. Laforce.
The latter was granted letters patent for improvements in a pneumatic tire for bicycles.
Thomas B. Jeffrey, whose patent in Canada
is dated two months later than Laforce's, but
who had it patented in the U. S. prior to
Laforce, claimed that Laforce's patent
should be set aside as he, Jeffrey, was the
inventor. Justice Burbridge gave judgment with costs in favor of Laforce, deciding that a foreign patent of whioh the public had no knowledge could not annul a
patent granted in Canada although the in
vi-ntion was of an older date. The second
point in the judgment was that patents
were open to illustration and explanation,
but not for enlargement.
The Art Gallery is crowded daily by visitors anxious to see the models of the proposed Macdonald statue. General surprise
is expressed at the few models of merit.
The Deputy Minister of Agriculture today received a despatch from Chicago slating that the damage to the Canadian exhibits by the fire of last evening was very
slight. What damage there was was principally by water. The return of the Canadian exhibits may be delayed.

A Clever Scheme.
Victoria, Jan. 10.���[Special]���While the
British gunboat Boomerang, of the Aus ra-
Iian squadron, was patrolling the South seas
recently, she came up with a smart sailing
vessel which one of her officers boarded.
She proved to be a colonially owned craft
engaged in recruiting Kanakas for the
Queensland plantations. Oa board the
naval officer noticed a phonograph, and
it was explained that before the vessel left
Queensland the captain had visited numerous plantations where the islanders are employed. He toak a camera and a phonograph and with these went to business,
photographing groups of natives and also
taking individual pictures of well known
natives from the New Hebrides and Solomon croups. Edison's invention was then
brought into servioe, the best known of the
natives, and especially those who had
friends and relatives in the islands, being
invited to speak into the receiver any message for their friends. Very many of those
phonographic letters were procured, giving
glowing accounts of Kanaka plantation life
in Queensland and other news that would
interest "the old folks at home" in Malli-
cello, Ambrym, San Christoval or Malaita,
as the case might be. After securing a good
supply of "talks," all in the native tongues,
the ingenious skipper sailed for the islands,
where he was still astonishing the natives
when last heard from. Many of the photographs he had transferred to glass for use
with the limelight and thus with  a  phono-

At a recent mass meeting of the inhabitants of Mission City and surrounding district, held to protest against the new fisheries regulations, the following resolutions
were passed: "By the citizens of Mission
City and surrounding Municipalities in mass
meeting here assembled: Be it resolved,
whereas the new fisheries regulations as for
mulated by the Hon, Minister of Marine
and Fishing, prohibit fishing in the Fraser
river above Wharnock instead of Sumas
river as heretofore, and whereas, such law
will ruin scores of our citizens who have
their capital invested in canning, drying,
smoking and salting works, boats and nets,
and whereas, expert testimony heretofore
taken all emphatically demonstrate that
there is no injury or disadvantage to the
fish from catching to the Sumas river limit,
and whereas, said expert testimony has just
so clearly shown that it would be of most
material benefit and advantage to prohibit
the fishing at and about the mouth of the
said Fraser river. Theiufore be it resolved,
that expert testimony and reliable evidence
has been disregarded and a most unjust law
has been formulated, so far as section eleven
is concerned. Resolved: That we most
earnestly request and demand that Sumas
river shall be the fishing limit, instead of
Wharnook aa proposed in the new fishing
regulations. "

At St. Paul's Institute last night a specially
pleasant time was spent. The hall was
prettily decorated with flags. The distribution of presents from the Christmas tree
to the assembled juveniles evoked much
happy mirth. Then followed a tasty supper, and the presentation of the operetta,
"The Seasons." The parts of Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter were taken respectively by Misses E. McGill, E. Perchet,
A. Booth and E. Woolfe; who eaoh sang
well in boIo and chorus. Then came "Fairy
Tales," a chorus, a recitation by Miss Connie
Heddle and a solo by Miss Amy Booth. A
duet by Gerald and Phyllis Davis, aged respectively 4J and 3j years, gained two
encores. A duet by Eddie Booth aud
Emma Lee met with much favor,
as did a solo by Nettie McAdie.
A pretty chorus enlitled "The Gleaners"
went well. The tableau of Cinderella was
very pretly. Choruses and solos by Misses
Etta Stannard, Mary Hague and Jennie
McAlpine were encored, as also was a solo
by Reuben Wallis, and a duet by him and
Mies Annie Booth. The entertainment
wound up with God Save the Queen. About
$20 was raised by admission fees. Among
the gifts from the Christmas tree were a
baby's rattle to Mr, Harvey Johnson, a
baby's bottle to Mr, V. Good, and a doll
and bottle for Mr. N. Foster.
At St. Alban's.
The social concert held last, night at St.
Alban's Hall was well attended and the
whole proceedings were much enjoyed by
those present. The programme was altered
slightly, seieial who were to have taken
part ln-iug unable to do so, amongst whom
Mrs. J amieson was especially missed. The
���vening opened with an overture by Messrs.
Bate, Drake and Kirkham, which waB followed by a violin and piano duet by Mea-
dames Laird and Heyland. Then came a
solo by Mrs. J. Honeyman, after which
Messrs. C. H. Baiker and T. R. Mclnues
gave a piano and banjo duet, receiving an
encore. The Misses Taylor and Tweed's
duet was followed by a piano solo by
Miss Watson, which was heartily encored.
An interval during ��hich refreshments were
indulged in then ensued and was made the
most of.
A selection by the orchestra opened the
second part. A song by Mr. J. R. Wray
was well rendered and th" club swinging by
MisB Pollock was eminently graceful and
pretty. The programme concluded with a
recitation by W. W, Battson, a piano aolo
by Miss Watson and (iod Save the Queen.
The performances without exception were
most brilliant, with so much excellence that
it would be invidious to make comparison.
The evening, however, was very thoroughly
enjoyed and the next concert under the auspices of St. Albans will assuredly be looked
forward to.

A Honolulu paper says that if the British

there is no room inside the harbor for her.
"Even if she is anchored in the naval row,"

HUMOR IN THE SCHOOL-ROOM.
BY JAMES L. IICCHKS,
Inspector of Pulilio Schools for the City of Toronto.
CONCI.UDKU.
If anything w*-iv p . .Ld to prove the absolute Btupidity of ihe simultaneous repetition by the class jf oral statements made l*y
the teacher, aa a substitute for teaching,
the following should be conclusive: A word
with whose meaning the child is uot definitely acquaiuted is merely a new noise to
it. Even if it is familiar with the meaning
of the language, it is often liable to confound the words used with others similar in
���ound. "John, give an example of a noun,"
���aid the teacher, and John, after meditation gave "organ-grinder." "Why?" "Because he's a person plays a thing." "Queen
Mary married the Dolphin." "Mrs. Brown-
ibg wrote poetry to 'he pottery gaege."
Thia was not complimentary to the Portuguese nor to the teacher's method of teaching literature. "The organs of digestion
are the stomach, liver, spleen and utensils,"
���'The heart is a comical shaped bag." "The
blood is putrefied in the lungs by inspired
air." The ideas given by the pupila who
wrote these answers were not very clear.
Unfortunately there are many pupils who
are trained to repeat answers correctly aod
very fluently, who have no definite conception of the meaning of the words they
use. Good teachers give their pupils
every possible opportunity to use new words
and give thoir own ideas of their meaning.
Such exercises reveal the most extraordinary misconceptions sometimes. "What
is guilt?' "Telling on another boy." "What
ia love?" "It's going errands," aaid little
Mary. A poor boy was aaked, "What is
a gentleman?" "A fellow that bas a watch
and chain," was his answer, adding when
he saw that his * nswer was not perfectly
satisfactory, "and loves Jeaua." He evidently thought the latter portion of hia
answer should atone for any weakness in
the former part. A Sunday school ohild
told her day school teacher that "Missionaries are men who get money." "Epicure
is a man who likes a good dinner." "Alias
was a good man mentioned in the Bible."
"Mediaval ia a wioked man who haa been
tempted." Sometimes a pupil cornea nearer
the truth than might be expected in defining a word he does not understand, aa did
the boy who wrote, "a demagogue is a vessel contain..*t, bear and other liquids."
Even when the pupils have a clear conception ��� '**���*.��� moaning of words they often
give amusing applications of them when
asked for illustrative definitions. "Tom,
use a sentence with responsibility in it."
Tom said, "When one suspender button ia
gone there ia a great deal of responsibility
on the other one." "Write a sentence with
the word nauseous in it," brought out the
answer, "This examination m ikea me feel
nauseous."
The oral anawera given in class are often
mirth-provoking. The ward "lad" occurred
in the primary reading. "What is a.lad?"
enquired the teacher. A very small girl
answered, "A thing for courting with."
"(iive the future of drink." "Preient he
drinbe, future he will be drunk." "The
plural of pillow?" "Bolster." "Compare.ill."
"111, worse, dead." This recalls the answer of the boy who aaid, "Masculine, man;
feminine, woman; neuter, corpae.' "What
are the chief importa of Caoada?" "Emigrants." "Did you ever aee an elephant 'a
skin?" "Yes, sir!"   "Where?"   "On the ele-
Shant," said the innocent youngster. "What
o you know of Wellington? First boy
' 'He won the battle of Waterloo." Seoond
boy. "He was Prime Minister of England."
Third boy. "He is dead." "What do you
call a man from Poland?" "A Pole." "Oue
from Holland?" "A Hole." "What ia the
difference between foot and feet?" "One
feet ia a foot, and a whole lot of foota ia a
feet," explained the young philosopher.
Many people imagine that boya and girls
are not philosophers. Tliii proves that
they are not well acquainted with boys and
girls They are great reasoners within their
proper range of thought. They thinkquiokly
and accurately as far as their knowledge extends, They get out of a difficulty by their
wits aa if they were trained lawyera. "Who
was the first man?" said a Chicago teaoher.
"Washington," promptly answered the
young American. "No," said the teacher,
"Adam was the first man." "Oh! wel), I
suppose you are right," replied the un
daunted patriot, "if you refer to furriuers."
"How did that blot come on your copy
book, Sam?" "I think it is a tear, Mias
Wallace." "How could a tear be black,
Sam?" "It muat have been a colored boy
who dropped it," suggested the reflective
Samuel. The teacher told her class that
Charles II. was a Roman pat hollo. Independent Lulu said that she thought i hat h>*
was pn Episcopalian. "Why, Lulu?" "Because we read that he did things that he
ought not to have done, and left undone
things that he ought to have done." "Wou.d
you Believe that a star is bigger than the
earth?" "No," said Chester, "if it waa, it
would keep the rain oil." "The ostrich ia the
only bird on whicji you can ride," remarked
the teacher. "Why, no it ain't," aaid little
Peter, "you can ride on a lark " "Why do
you think ao, Peter?" "Well, I know wIiph
my uncle wai gone for a week, mother said
he'was off nn a link.'ami when he came
home hia face was fed as it Iu* had beou rilling hard." "What made the tower of Pisa
lean?" "The famino in thi land." "We
-can only hear sound, we cannot f��el suuml,"
, said the teacher. "You Ran feel i. sound
thrashing can't you," ask"*' little Fred.
"What makes the ocean salt?" "Salt fish,"
replied reflective Donald, "What does the
aea water contain beaidea sodium chloride?'
���"Fish, sir," said a boy who trusted to hia
shrewdness more than to preparation of
his leBsona. The same I oy when asked to
draw a picture of Jonah and the whale,
drew the whale only?   "Where is Jonah?"
I asked the teacher sharply." "Inside the
whale," said the imperturbable boy. "Now
children," aaid the teaoher, "we have gone
through the history of   England, tell me in
' whose reign you would live if you could
���choose for youreell?"   "inthe reign of King
I James," said philosopher Alec, "because I
read that education waa very much neglected in hiB time." "Count twenty when
you are angry before you strike," said the
teaoher. "Please, I think it ia better to
count forty if you can't lick the other fellow," wisely added the cautious Harold.
"Suaan, if I were a little girl I would study
my lessons," said the teacher, reprovingly.
"Then I guess you are glad that you ain i. a
little girl," shrewdly answeied Susan, "if
you wish to be good-looking when you grow
up you should go to hed early," waa the advice of a lady teacher to her class in hygiene. Isabel rather rudely ventured to say
tn reply: "I suspect you sat up late when
you was a girl." Oh, yes! girls and boys
can think and apply their thoughts.
The humor of the schoolroom is too valuable to be lost.    Every   teacher should re
cord tbe humorous sayings and amusing incidents in connection with her class.
Teachers' Associations should appoint recorders of humor, to whom ail teachers
should send the merry sketches of their
school-mum**. An hour spent in reading
these siui.es iu i'onvai i .ns would be profitably spend. The pu -lication of a volume
of such stories pi in* .ally would enrich
the literature of hum.-r. The best collection of txtraorilmaiy answers yet issued is
tha' prepared by Muss Caroline B. Le Row,
of Brooklyn, New York.���The Canadian
Magazine,

What is the cause of all this noise and bustle around our Bargain Counter ? "We ha e had, and other people have
had, Bargain Counters before, but i ot on tin same scale. What constitutes a Successful Bargain Counter, anyhow ?
Just simply this���make every article on it 30 Low in Price that it will cause an exclamation of Wonder and Surprise in
every instance where the price is given.   It is no trouble then to make sales.
See the Costumes we are selling at Half Frice. There's not an objectionable one among them. We have already
sold eight or ten and expect to clear every one of them out this month.
We believe in keeping cur stock dear, go as to be able every Season, as it comes round, to give our customers nice
clean goods in all the latest novelties the market produces To be able to do this we have, of course, to slaughter some
stuff at Ridiculous Prices.
We almost forgot to mention that we intend clearing out our balance of Ladies' and Children's Waterproofs, at
