unemployed. Mr. Hardie said thnt acute
distress was prevailing in the country. A
large number of cases of suicide and starvation had been reported. Pauperism had in-
increased, especially in London. It was
necessary, he declared, that the local
authorities should furnish employment for
the poor. Mr. John MacDonald, member
for Tower Hamlets, supported Mr. Hardie.
Mr. Hardie's motion was lost by a vote of
175 to 33.

others are opposed to it.

Toronto, Dec. 12.���The following special
cable fioin London appears in this morning's

fortnight.
The Press Bill Passed.
Pakis, Dec. 12.���ihe Senate to-day
passed the Press Bill adopted by the Chamber of Deputies yeaterday. Tliere was not a
dissenting vote. President Carnot will sign
the bill tonight. It will be published in
the Journal Official'' to-morrow, and will be
enforced immediately thereafter. Tbe
Figaro says that the bill prevents an increase
of anarchist prints, and will thus impose
silence on dilettante dynamiters.
The Law Must Take Its Course.
Ottawa, Den. 11. ���The Privy Council has
decided to recommend His Excellency that

the New Bliss murderer.

Mitchell Has an Advocate.
Montreal, Dec. 12.���The Star editorially
strongly urges the Government to appoint
Hon. Peter Mitchell as Governor of New
Brunswick, and believes that while there
may be other aspirants to the office, there
can be no one whose claims, baaed on
valuable service rendered to bis native
province and to the Dominion, will compare
with Mr. Mitchell.
Von Goldstein Appointed.
London, Dec. 12.���Baron von Goldstein
has been selected by the Dutch governor as
minister to London to replace the late
Count de Bylandr, and the appointment has
been sai cliooed by the Queen Regent of the

Found in the River.
London, Dec. 12.���The brdy o^ Seadock
Outram, Mr. Gladstone's valet, and trusted
factotum for 20 years, who mysteriously
disappeared at the beginning of December,
was found floating in the Thames near
London Bridge to-day. It was taken into
the Tower Hill mortuary where an inquest
will be held. It is surmised that Outram
committed suicide. He left Mr. Gladstone's
Downing street residence on the night of
November .'10, ostensibly to meet the young
woman to whom he was engaged to be
married. He did not meet her and was not
afterwards seen by any of his acquaintances.
It is conjectured that ou that night or soon
after he threw himself into the river.
Six Hundred Dangerous Anarchists.
Paris, Dec. 12.���The representative of
the United Press called at the Prison De
Lasalle to-day, to enquire as to the condition
of Auguste Vaillant, the anarchist' who
threw the bomb in the Chamber of Deputies
on Saturday. The would-be assassin has
lost much of his former air of bravado and
his spirits are depressed in contrast with his
actions and braggadocio after his arrest.
A semi official estimate of the dangerous
anarchists in Paris and its suburbs places
the number at six hundred.
How Valliant Got In.
London, Dec. 12���The Paris correspondent of the Daily News Bays that Valliant
concealed for some time a leg wouuil caused
by a nail from the bomb. The wound is
said to have become so inflamed that a
capital operation must be performed, in
case Vailliant is to be kept alive for trial.
The correspondent also says:;���"All statements that Valliant was in the free gallary
are wrong. He was actually in the adjoining gallery, for which M. Angelies, Radical
deputy for Corbeille, gave him a ticket.
M. Angelies <'id not, know Valliant, �� ho
applied under the name of Dumont, giving
an address in Angelies' electorate. The
latter, knowing that Dumont was common
there, and being reluctant to offend a probable supporter, gave him the ticket.
Greeted With Cheers.
Paris, Dec. 12.���Iu the Senate yesterday
M. Challemell Lacour, the president of the
house, said that he was not able to pass in
silence the outrage that had been committed
in the Chamber of Deputies. The strongest
terms were too feeble to express the horror
of the whole offence. He said that he felt
able to hsaute the Government that it had
the entire confidence of the Senate, and all
the members of that body applauded the
courage, energy aud promptness with which
the ministry had adopted the resolutions
necessary to ensure the repression of anarchist crimes and to extirpate the entire sect
warring upon society and all notions of
morality. The time had come to check the
contagion of unprecedented moral leprosy.
The Government had undertaken a task
that Wis sure to meet the hearty approval
in France of republicans of all shades of
opinion. France must recover her security.
Not only the safety of individuals and the
state was at stake, but the very existence of
the republic, future liberty and the nation's
honor. M. Challemell Lacour was greeted
with cheer after cheer when he had finished
his address.

Grain Duties in France.
Paris, Dec. 12.���Deputy Meline the
French McKinley, and Deputies AlphonBe
Turrel, and Jean Leygues, met Premier
Casimir Perier and M. Viger, minister of
agriculture st the foreign office to-day to
submit proposals to increase the grain duties,
M. Tisserau, director of customs, was called
in as an expert. Eventually all agreed
with him tnat i*. would not be necessary to
increase the grain duties if steps should be
taken to prevent fraudulent speculation in
grain. Such steps probably will be taken
soon.
Found Guilty.
Bran-word, Ont., Dec. 12.���W. Hooper,
charged with burglarizing a residence here
in August last, was found guilty yesterday,
and sentenced to nine months in the central
prison. Hooper is a brother of tbe Hooper

crime, found guilty and sentenced to death,

to life imprisonment. It is now learned that
McMahon is innocent. A man going under

sluugh'er, confessed to being Hatton'a

A Stormy Time.
London, Dtc. 12.���High winds and rain
did considerable damage in England to-day.
The army printing works now building at
Aldershot, were partly destroyed. Men at
work on the building came down in the
ruin and several were so seriously injured
that they had to be taken to the hospital.
The peninsula of Poole, in Dorset, suffered
severely. Boofs were blown off and a few
light structures were demolished. Many
streets were under water and much of the
shipping at the docks was damaged. Few
persons were injured.
A Noisy Session.
Paris, Dec. 12.���M. Basly, Socialist,
moved in the Chamber of Deputies to-day
the appointment of a commission to inquire
into the recent strike of coal miners and the
condition of the miners. He denounced the
mameuvres reserted to by the companies in
fighting the working man's syndicate and
asserted that the companies did not care
how the miners lived or starved if only they
had "strength left to enable them to be
further exploited. His remarks called forth
cheers from the Socialists. M. Plichon,who
is director of the Pas de Calais mines asked:
"Arc you accusing me ?" Tnis was the signal for an uproar and the noise continued until M. Dupuy, president of the
Chamber, interposed, saying: "There are no
accused here, all are ���lpwri��,s." M. Jon-
nart, minister of public worka delivered his
first speech as a member of the c.ibioet and
it was a clever one. He denied that the
government sought to interfere with the
right of workingmen to strike, hut it was
determined to maintain tho liberty of labor.
He drew a graphic picture of the constant
strikes, which he declared had resulted in
the withdrawal of French capital for home
industrial enterprises and its embarkation
in speculation. When M. Jonnart; made
this statement, the Socialists cried out
Panama!" "Panama!" "Panama!"
William Howland Dead.
Toronto,  Dec.   12.���Ex-mayor   William
Howlaud died   at   the   Arlington  Hotel at
fifteen minutes past one this afternoon.
Thompson Talks.
Halifax, N. S. Deo. 12.���Sir John
Thompson and Sir Charles Tupper were
entertained at a banquet in Halifax last
night. The Premier devoted a large part
of his speech to the relation of Canada to
the United States. Had it not been, he
said, that the last two general elections in
Canada established beyoud doubt and for all
time the political and commercial independence of this country, we should never have
seen the proposed trade concessions embodied in the Wilson Bill. Regarding those
concessions Canada will reciprocate step by
step in so far as we cau do so without sacrificing our revenue or our industries to those
of the United States. It will not lesson
Canada in the esteem of the Americans for
them to know, first, that we intended to
Btand for Canada's fiscal and political independence for all time; and second, that
there shall be no cause for quarrel between
us that fair and honest neighbors cannot
amicably aettle.
Barges Afloat.
LoriSBURo, Cs.pe Brtton, De'*.. 12.���The
tug Douglas H. Thomas, arrived in port

A Quadruple Lynching.
Birmingham, Ala., Dec. 12.���A report
has just reached here from Selma, Ala., of a
quadruple lynching which occurred in Dallas
on Sunday. On Saturday night four negro
tramps went to the house of Mrs. Wm.
Jones, during the absence of her husband
and knocked on the door. She was alone
and went to the door; she saw the men and
refused to let them in. They demanded
an entrance and one of them pushed the door
open. At this juncture Mrs. Jones
opened tire on the crowd with a pistol,
wounding the man who had broken open
the door. The tramps fled. It ��������� not
long before the alarm was given and a posse
of citizens quickly organized. They followed the trail of the tramps by the blood left
along the route by the wounded man. Three
mileB away he was overtaken on the road.
At the p dut of pistols he told the direction
in wiiuh ttie others had gone. A rope waa
put around his neck and the search for the
other three continued. Just before daylight the others were caught. They were
taken to a neighboring swamp and just at iun-
rise all four were suspended to the same
limb. Their bodies were fired at, after
which the posse rode away. The scene of the
lynching is a few miles from the place where
three negroes were lynehed last week for
the murder of Reuben Smith at Berlin. The
matter was kept so secret that nothing was
known of it here until to day, when the
news w,*i brought by a prominent citizens
of an adjoining county, who was in Selma
county last night and heard the story.
The Flood Abating.
Spokane, Dec. 12.���Reports from Colfax
and Eberton say the high water in the
Palouse river is falling owing to the cold
wave setting in last night and present indications are that there will be no further
damage from the flood. The streets of both
of the above towns are strewn with wreckage. Portions of Eberton are still inundated, but the water is receding. The
Union Pacifio has a large force of men at
work repairing the track that has been
carried away and trains will be running on
time to-night. It is estimated that the
damage caused by the flood will foot up to
575,000.

No Definite Instructions.
San Francisco, Dec. 11.���To day internal
reve.ue collector Wellborn received from
Washington a copy of the amended Geary
law No men tion was made to the collector aa

Failed to Eventuate.
Chicago, Ills., Deo. 12.���The gathering
of the unemployed on the lake front, an
nounced to take place this morning, did
not materialize. The unfortunates had
been employed at the fair, the majority
hustling for work. A reserve force of a
hundred officers were held at the stations
for several hours ready for any emergency. 	
A Generous Prince.
Nkw York, Dec. 12 ���Mr. Edward Yates,
in his Loudon cable to the Tribune aays:
The Duke of Saxe-Coburg Gotha, after con
suiting the Queen and Prince of Walea, haa
placed himself in communication with Lord
Salisbury and Mr. Gladstone on the subject
of his parliamentary allowance of ��25,000 a
year, which he has reeolved to surrender,
and this very generous decision will prole
ably be formally announced by the Prime
Minister to the House of Commons before
Parliament adjourns. The Duke's allow
ance was granied him by act of parliament
and only an act of parliament could take it
away. It was sett led in 1830 when it was
proposed to deprive Prince Leopold of Saxe
Coburg Gotha, who had been elected King
of Belgium, of au aliowai.ee of ��50,000 a
year, which had been voted him for life together with the mansion and estate of Clare-
mont, in Surrey, on his marriage with Princess Charlotte. Leopold kept both Clare-
mont and his allowance, but regularly repaid to the treasury the bulk of the income,
retaining only enough to defray his English
pensions and the coat of maintaining Clare-
mont.
A Steamer Ashore.
Milwaukee, Dec. 12.���The Flint and
Pere Marquette ateamer No. 3 ia on the
beach near this port. She left Ludington
last night with eighteen passengers. She
atruck during a hard snow storm. The
life-saving crew found difficulty iu launching their surf boat, as there is a pile of ice
eight or ten feet high all along the shore.
They succeeded, however, after a time in
getting it launched into the breakers, and
rowed out to the steamer. The wavea were
ao high that it was concluded not to take
off the passengers, as the boat appeared to
be safe. The seas are breaking over her
some, but the wind is now down to 26 miles
an hour, and the sea is decreasing a little.
There are two women among the passengers.
The life-saving crew found everybody on
board badly frightened, but no one was
hart. Supplies of food have been sent fiom
shore by the life-saving crew. Two women
have been brought ashore from the wreck.
They are Mrs. Sooren Peterson and Miss
Flora Gundman, of Ludington, Michigan.
The Noted Blythe Estate.
San Francisco, Dec. 11.���The fight over
the administration of the Blythe estate has
already commenced. It was inaugurated
this morning by attorney-general W. H.
Hart filing a petition in the superior court
for the appointment of Florence Blythe-
Hinckley as Bpecial administrator of the
estate. This will undoubtedly be followed
by a petition on the part of the public administrator, A. C, Frieze, asking his appointment as administrator of the estate. A
portion of Mrs. Hinckley's claim recites the
fact that Thos. B. Blythe died intestate in
April 1883, and on June 12 following,
Phillip Roach, then public administrator,
was appointed administrator of the estate.
He died on April 27th, 1889, and on May 10
of the same year, public administrator Jamea
C. Pennie, was appointed. He died on|the
9th of this month. The present value of
the real estate belonging to the Blythe
estate is given as $37,000,000 yielding
monthly a rental of $12,000 There is also
cash on deposit in the city treasury belonging to the estate amounting to $150,000.
This money cannot be drawn out until the
estate is finally distributed. There aro
three cases pending in the supreme court in
volving the estate and now that the administrator of the estate is dead, it haB no
representative in the legation.

THE PROTECTION OF PROPERTY.
The Coming Convention of Fire Chiefs in
San Francisco.
Secretary Wnr.->ley, ��f  thu Association of
Fire Chiefs,  S .11   F.auciseo has addressed
the following letter   to   the fire   chiefs, insurance agents, and others, who are to meet
in February in   San   Francisco:   "To   the
chief engineers and   representatives   of the
fire department service,   insurance   unions,
inspectors, electricians ami manufacturers of
fire   department appliances���Gentlemen:���
Fully recognising tht advantage to be gained
by uniting the  manufacturing   interests   of
fire department   uppliances   with the insurance   interests,   aB   placed   upon   propertj
guarded hy mon of quick   perception, sound
judgment, cool and prompt executive ability,
and to unit-' every branch of tha fire department     susvice     in     one     grand      organization,   the   Pacific Coast Association   of
Fire   Chiefs   was   organized, and   has   for
its   aim   an   object  seoond   in  importance
to that of no mechanical organization in existence, and it commands the attention  and
assistance of every progressive man  in the
fire department service. That these interests
are better subserved by the meeting together
ef the heuiin oi departments  for M.e  di-cuf-
sion of all topics pertaining to the management   of   department    affairs    cannot   bs
controverted.    As well might the physician
hope   to   succeed   by   throwing xside   hia
books, ignoring the experience of   oilier* nf
his   profession   gained   by   long   years   ot
hospital practice, and confine his knowledge
to the facts gained ia his own  limited practice, aa a department chief expect to sue
ceed when ignoring the advantages uc.:ruiug
from attendance at these association  meetings.    The annual increasing fire loss is a
menace to our national prosperity, notwithstanding the use of  our modern  improved
machinery     and      methods      employed.
While      theae     losses      are     appalling,
sight must not be lost of the fact that this
sum represents but  an infinitesmal part of
the property values committed  Io our care;
hence I say that the department chief owes
it to his city, his state and to the nation
that he does not confine  his operations to
expericLC   gained   by   him alore;   but he
muat reach out in all   directions, gather in
and combine t he  experience of others with
his own,   This association is formed f< r just
such a purpose, that we  may each one of us
profii by tlie experience of others, a knowledge of wheh Is gained  by   attendance at
���ur meetings. Not alone to firemen are these
mentii'gs   of  praotical benefit, huH they are
attrActing the attention of lawmakers, who
watch with interest for the printed reports
of their proceedings, and are  beginning to
use tliem largely for their guidance iu formulating their laws and oid'tinjjej and plans
and specifications for their buildings.    Great
is the pity I lint they did not sor n��*r turn   to
these source* for information.    And yet the
labor of this  great   organization   haa just
begun.    The second annual convention   and
exhibit of the association  will   be   held  in
San Francisco on   the   6, 7, 8, and 9th   of
February 1894, during the Midwinter  Fair,
and it is to be   hoped   that   at   that   time
every department on the Pacific coast shall
have representation in it, meet  with  us   at
our m clings, dincuss wiih   us   their  views
and experiences, so that they may go  back
to their homes, better  prepared  to  protect
the interests committed to their care."

THE PARIS  BOM It THROWER   All-
REf- TED.
The man who flung the bomb in the
French Chamber of Deputies on Saturdiiy
has been arrested, and will no doubt be
sent to tho guillotine in a few days. His
name is Valliant. When examined before
the magistrate he acknowledged that the
deputies had done him no harm personally,
but said they were a sort of people it was
well to get rid of.    "He would like to make
a  fricassee,"   he   said,   "of   those   d d
deputies." It ia hard to understand the
education this man must have received from
the propagators of anarchism to have imbibed and given expression to opinions so
atrocious. It will be an evil day for France
and for the world if theae anarchists ever
obtain the upper hand. Sir William Vernon Harcourt, the liritish Chancellor of the
Exchequer, has given notice in the House
of Commons, amid general applause, of a
motion of sympathy with the French Chamber of Deputies. A similar motion waB introduced in the Hungarian Diet on Monday.
The anarchists are doing their best to make
themselves abhorred as the enemies of the
human race at large.
THE   WILSON  TARIFF.
The Seattle Pest-Intelligencer claims that
the Wilson Tariff ia properly a revenue
tariff.    It saya:
"The Democrats have framed and expect
to pass not a revenue tariff, but a tariff
which is a protective tariff, which only
differs from the McKinley tariff in matters
of detail. The Wilson tariff bill is not to
raise revenue from customs duties, but to
foster certain industries. A revenue tariff
differs from a protective tariff in this, that
the former taxes imported products of a
kind not raised in the home country, in
order that the tax on them may all go into
the treasury, while the latter taxes imported
products whose like is produced in the home
country, in order that a part of the tax may
go into the pockets of the home producers
for their 'protection.' Of course under a
tariff for revenue only, promised by the
Chicago platform, a commodity like
sugar, nearly all of which is imported,
would he substantially taxed, while pro
ducts like cotton and woollen goods, of
which there is a large domestic production,
would be lightly taxed or left free altogether.
But the Wilson bill, instead of raising the
duties on sugar, or restoring them where
they had beeu removed, actually reduces
them. At the same time it leaves the duties
on cotton and woollen goods, iron and steel
products and all manufactured articles at
handsome protective figures. There is
nothing of free trade or revenue tariff in
this; it is protection through  and through. '
If this view be correct the Wilson tariff is
simply a moderate protection tariff, that is
to say one nearly equivalent to the tariff'
now in force in Canada. When the Dominion tariff has been revised and reduced,
as it will be shortly, Canada will again have
distinctly the advantage of the United
States in the matter of low taxation. The
result will be that the Canadian farmers will
posses a decided advantage over their
American competitors. At tho same time
the Wilson tariff promises to open the
American market free or nearly ao to most
Borts of Canadian farm produce, it is to be
hoped that an era of good times is approaching, not only for the farmers of Canada, but
also for our lumbermen, miners, and fishermen.
It is currently reported at Ottawa that
Sir S. L. Tilley will be re-appointed Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick.
The revenue of the Dominion seems to be
flourishing. The revenue for the past five
months is 815,000,527, and the expenditures
$11,686,820. At any rate it cannot be contended that the N. P. has failed to set right
the finances of the Dominion.
Chicago Postoffice Robbed.
ClUCAno, Dec. 12.���The Chicago post-
office, located in the heart of the city, was
robbed of $7,000 to-night. Andrew Robertson, the cashier of the wholesale stamp department of the postoffice, was dangerously
wounded in a fight with the robbers. About
7:30, while he was engaged iu balancing his
accounts, someone appeared at his window
and asked him how ho was coming out.
Robertson replied that he thought he was
all right. The stranger said that he had
sent'ii boy for stamps during the day and
that Robeitson had given him too many
and that he would return them if Robertson
would open the door. When tho man gave a
private rap used by thu clerks in the building, lhe duor was opened. As soon as the
robber was inside the office, he attacked
Robeitson and a terrible conflict eusuod.
Stamps were scattered all around the office,
several large packages being found on the
floor. Robertson was finally roduced to insensibility and the thief decamped, taking
what money there was in Bight. The exact
amount taken is not known,but it is said by
Government employees that the sum will
reach ��7,000. Robertson wbb takon to the
I'resbyterian hospital, where the physicians
said that his wounds were dangerous. Up
to a late hour to-night the police had failed
to obtain a clue to the robber.
Hunting for Train Robbers.
AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 12.���The Saturday
night train robbery is Hearing a close. Officers have been on a continuous trail since
Sunday morning. At 3 o'clock and after
travelling a circuitous route covering many
miles, the officers this morning found themselves in the vicinity of AuBtiu. As was
suspected last night, the gang belongs to the
toughs of this city and neighborhood. Soon
after their arrival in town the officers located and arrested Dick Wallace and Lnm
Denton, both being implicated in the robbery.
At t lie time of Denton's arrest he had a large
amount of yold rfc his possession, and was
wearing a watch taken from a gentleman of
this city, who was a passenger on the train.
Denton arrived in town last night and immediately began drinking. A pal of his by
the name of Johnson,took up with him and
Denton let him into the transactions of the
gang. Johnson gave him away this morning to the officers and hia arrest folllowed
He is an ex-hackdiiver of this city, and is
notorious as a crook. Wallace is and ex-
convict and has been living for aeveral
years in the neighborhood of
this city. Hill Bronson, alias Broncho
Bill,       passed       through the        city
thia morning just ahead of the
officers and proceeded south of town to an
old rendezvous of his, where the officers
located him to-night He offered resistance
and the officers opened fire, bringing him
down at the first volley. HiB wounds are
considered dangeroua. It now transpires
that there were only four robbers in the
gang, and the fourth one, Burtson by name,
is going west on horseback. The officers
have him located, and his arrest is only a
matter of a few hours.

NOTICES.
The Catholic Review said recently: "At
the present rate at which converts are coming into the Church, it will be a hundred
thouaand yeara before America becomea
Catholic." Thia calculation is based on a
study of the recent census. On the other
hand it is claimed for the Protestant
churches of the United Statea that while the
population of the country haa increased 25
per cent, in ten yerrs the PresbyterianB,
CongregationaliBts, Baptists, Methodists,
Lutherans, and Episcopalians have increased
42 per oent.
Indian finances are in a bad way. The
closing of the mints to the free ooinage of
silver has disturbed trade, and the revenue
is declining. The Government have on
hand a balance of only ��1,852,000. By the
first of April they will have to pay out ��8,-
000,000. Mr. G. E. Russel, Parliamentary
secretary of the Indian office, asked the
House on Friday evening to grant power to
the Indian administration to borrow ��10,-
000,000 to meet existing liabilities. The
proposal was sharply criticized, but event
ttially the report of the committee was
agreed to.

Tbe Ei-.-t Wellington Mine.
As a colliery, under the name of the East
Wellington Coal Co., this mine is almost an
enterprise of the past. I) *.. ,.���". the past two
weeks the rails and pumps have been removed from below ground as well lit all
other mateiial which could be removed
and otherwise utilised. On the top the
cages have been detached from the wire rope
hoisting gear and carefully housed. The
pulleys which surmounted the frames at the
pit heads have also been lowered and disposed of with a view to their early removal
to the wharf at Departure Bay, whence they
will be shipped to San Fraucisco by the
steamer Empire. All the employees who
have not complied with the notice whioh
they have already received to remove from
the dwelling which they have hitherto occupied will, so rumor says, be warned that
a non-compliance with the notice will be
followed with a further intimation that
their tents wil be doubled. There are at
present from fifteen to twenty families still
resident in the colliery, some of whom are
comparatively well off while others from illness iu their families and other reasons are
without a dollar. The hotel under the
management of George Graham has succumbed to hard times aud assigned, the
Union Brewing Co., being one of the
principal creditors.
At Wellington large numbers of men are
daily seeking work and the ground surrounding No. 6 aud No. 4 pit heads is daily
black with those anxiously seeking work.
No. 6 pit has hitherto been working double
shifts which will shortly be done away with
and one shift only be worked. The men
whose services on the double shift will
be dispensed with will be given
work in No. 4 pit, as the workings
are once more put in shape after the late
fire and flooding. It iB a matter of remark
that never since Nanaimo has been a labor
centre have so many strangers and miners
been so plentiful in applying for work.

THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL
A Gay Deceiver's Dcsertod Wife���A Surprise From the Banks.
VicTOKiA,Dec. 12���Special���Another chapter in the strange case of Mr. J. Sanderson-
Edmuuds, to which the San Francisco press
have lately devoted eolurr.nB, may be written
with Victoria aa the scene. The gentleman
with the neatly parted name, it will be remembered, arrived in San Francisco a few
months ago with a dainty little Japanese
wife, known as Shi Saku in her own land,
and to whom he had been legally wedded in
Yokohama The couple took apartment,
at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, where they lived
in style aa long as money or credit lasted.
Then Mrs. Shi Sakn Sanderson-Edmunds
became the guest of Rev. T. Suamoto, superintendent of the Japanese mission, while
her husband and lord courted and married
hy coutract a Sau Fiaaoisco girl named May
Hill. The wholesale matrimonial tenden-
cieB of Mr. Sanderson-Edmunds might
not then have been made known had
Misa Hill beeu satisfied wiih
the peculiarly California!! contract marriage.
She was not, however, and Mr. J Sander-
siiu Kdiuuudb proceeded to St. John's church
with the intention of requesting the rector,
Rev. E. B. Spalding, to officiate at a ceremonial wedding. . To aecure theolergyman's
ear he waa forced to pass through the schoolroom where a church fair was in progress,
and there encountered a former acquaintance
at the Cosmopolitan, Mrs. L. E. Loomis,
who learned with surprise that he was on
marriage bent. She took prompt action in
the matter, with the result that Mr. J.
Sanderson-Edmunds is at present wanted in
San Francisco to explain not only his debts
but a charge of bigamy. Now for the Viotoria part of the story. For the past six
months or more a third Mrs. J. Sanderson-
Edmunda���neither the little lady from
Japan nor yet Miss May Hill that
was���has been a resident of this
city. She was called upon yesterday by a TELEGRAM representative, and proved to be a
pleasant-voiced, brown-eyed woman of perhaps twenty-eight. She answered the pressman's inquiry immediately with the information "Yea, I am Mra. J. Sanderson-Edmunds," but declined to discuss the case for
the present at least. Thin muoh, however,
she did say���tbat ���either the Japareae
bride nor yet Miss Hill coup legally be
made his wife by Mr. Sanderson Edmunds,
for she waa married to him in Sydney, Australia, ten years ago, and has fullest proofs
of the ceremony. She was subsequently
deserted by her husband and after a short
reaidence in San Franoiaco came here, where
she had many friends. Mrs. Sandersou-
Edmunda has written full particulara of her
caae to the Japaneae minister at San Francisco, who will of course make public so
much of them as he thinks proper.

No Overdrafts to be Allowed.
Victoria, Deo. 12���[Special].���The mercantile community of British  Columbia and
all others who do  business   with the  banks
have received a not especially  pleasant surprise  in   the   form of a circular  notifying
them   that   on   and   after Jan uary 1st  uo
overdrafts of any kind will   be  allowed to !
any  customer, no   matter   how  strong  his
financial standing.    The further explanation
is made that patrons of  the banks requiring
the use of money beyond the limitB of their j
accounts must arrange for the same through
the ordinary   method of   discounting  good
paper.    This step is taken in concert by all
the banking   institutions of   tho  Province,
aud the reasou ia not hard to find.    Patrons
of  the   banks   have   in   the  past  thought'
nothing of  overdrawing for short periods��� j
and ovordratts  have  occasionally  run for a J
couaiderable    time���customers   thus   being!
enabled to use the money of the banks with-
out paying any interest thereon.    It  is this j
the bankers have deoided muft have an end.
The Latest by the Arawa.
Victoria, Dec. 12.���[Special]���When the
steamer Arawa, which arrived this morning,
left Honolulu, Queen Liliunkalani had not
yet been restored, that event being postponed from day to day though promised
aure "for two o'clock to-morrow." The
press of the provisional government was inveighing against Cleveland and reiterating
its determination to offer armed resistance
to the re-enthronement of the Queen, with a
promise of war to auy country offering her
protection. The maas of the people had
made uo public statement of their position
and the declarations of war were generally
accepted as bombastic threats impossible of
fulfilment. Public opinion, according to the
Arawa's officera and passengers, was that
the Queen would resume the throne without
molestation and immediately vacate it in
obedience to the expre_cd desire of the
people for a form of government other than a
monarchy. It is quite likely that the next
few weeks will see the provisional government replaced by a monarchy and the latter
succeeded by a republic. Business is being
pureued aa usual, and normal conditions
and order prevail. Among the Arawa'a
paaaengers was Hon. Mackenzie Bowell,
Dominion Minister of Trade and Commerce,
who visited Australia for the purpose of
advocating the development of reciprocal
trade by the new Canadian line. He found
Australian merchants enthusiastic supporters of the plan, and arranged for a
trade conference to be held in Canada next
June, to which not only all the Australian
colonies but all chambers of commerce will
send delegates. This conference would have
been held In January, but the meetings of
thf legislative assemblies of the various
Australian colonies conflict. It is unfortunate in Mr. Bowell's opinion that the
petty rivalry of separate colonies have
thus far prevented the confederation
of Australian interests for which the mass
of the Australian people are ready and
watting so that they may take their place
as a nation. Ou hia return voyage, Hon.
Mr. Bowell had the Arawa stop over oue
day at Honolulu while he addressed the
commercial community there. They passed
s'rong resolutions in favor of the develop
ment of reciprocal trade, and endorsing the
Canadian-Australian cable project, whose
designer, Mr. Sanford Fleming, accompanied
Mr. Bowell on the trip. It ia expected that
Honolulu will tuhsidize the scheme liberally
and be made a station.
An Important Case.
Victoria, Deo. 12.���Special���One of
the most important cases in the
history of British Columbia courts comeB up
for adjudication before the full bench of
Judges of the Supreme Court as aoon as the
conclusion of t ho Stroebel murder case leaves
the Attorney-General free to act in it.
The recent discoveries of gold in Alberni
have brought the matter to an issue and the
special case stated by the Crown and concurred in by the Esquimalt and Nanaimo
railway company is, iu a nutshell, this:
" By the grant to them of their renorves,
did the Esquimalt and Nanaimo railway
company receive frpm the Crown all right
claim and property in precious metals found
in or under their land, nr do they only
possess the usual surface rights?" The
question is awakening wide spread interest
and the trial will be eagerly watched by
those directly interested in mining on the
Island.
Viotoria City Council ia now in fear of an
injunction being obtained to prevent its
pollution of the waters near the C.P.N,
wharf by house sewage. The council members are also somewhat perturbed to learn
that the powder magazine in Beacon Hill
Park is not likely to be removed to the barracks beforo spring.
In the SupremeCourtat Victoria, the cause
of Lavender r��. Sieward was concluded on Sat-
turday. The plaintiff, Capt. Lavender, commanded thesualingsehooner Dora Sieward last
season, aud the defendants are Captain Sieward and others interested in the veasel.
The plaintiff claimed $1,288, moneys paid by
him as master of ths said schooner, and
wages due and and owing by the defendants
under agreements dated 25th October, 1892,
and 28th January, 1893. The defendants
admitted that they were indebted to the
plaintiff in some $714, whioh amount they
brought into court. In the matter of wages,
however, the defendants stated that the
plaintiff represented to them that one
Captain Harris was receiving $50 per month
while hia vessel was in port and $75 per
month, with seventy-five cents for each sealskin caught while the vessel was iu commission under his oommand. The defendants agreed to pay Captain Lavender on the
same basis, but afterwards discovered that
Captain Harris was not receiving the amount
stated, hence the aotion. Hon. Mr. Justice
Crease gave judgment for the plaintiff, Capt.
Lavender.
For several trips the up-river steamers

side of the river.
BY WIRE FROM SAN FRANCISCO;
Current News from the City by the Golden
Gate.
San Francisco, Dec. 12 ���Work is being
rushed at the park in anticipation of more
bad weather. The workmen on nearly all
the buildings have them inclosed so that
work could be pushed even should it rain.
Before the end of next week, the work of
putting exhibits in place will be under way.
The foreignera are the first on the ground
and many of their exhibita have arrived
from Chicago and only await completion oi
buildings to be put in place. The concessionaires of the Chinese buildings
are already getting their material
for the bazzars they will open
Most of it has already beeu imported and
can be seen in the stores of Chinatown. The
concessionaires are secretive about bringing
in taleut to the B'air, but they will take advantage of all the points in their favor and
against the exclusion act. The collector is
prepared to have a guarantee for the safe return of all the Chinese landed in accordance
with his instructions from Washington.
The Chinese building is nearly complete and
will be ready by the first. The arrangements for the electric lighting of the exposition huildings and the exposition grounds
are being pushed rapidly forward aud there
is every reason to believe that this feature
of the exposition will be ready in time for
the opening. Mr. Dorr, the gentleman who
represents the General Electric Co. at the
exposition, and who is to have entire charge
of the electric fountain, has arrived in the
city and will proceed at once with the installation of the fouutaiu and the preparation of its elaborate and intricate settings.

years proprietor of the Leland Hotel, Vanoouver, and had been a resident of Nanaimo

St. Paul's Institute - Coming Events.
There was a small attendance last night
at the St. Paul's Institute dance, the
weather, as elsewhere, being the cause.
Those that were present reaped a certain
amount of advantage as they had more
room; and in spile of the fewness of their
numbers, thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
St. Paul's choir and friends are about to
give quite a round of entertainments in the
Bear future, beginning with a repetition of
the farce "My Turn Next' at the Y. M. C.
A. rooms on Saturday, and on Monday the
whole of the performance held in St. Paul's
Institute will be repeated at Wellington.
On Tuesday the Doves and Ravens minstrels
will give a performance at Cedar district,
and on Wednesday and Thursday a bazaar
will be held at So. Paul's Institute, at which
a lunch will be provided at the rate of 25
cents a head, from 12 till 2:30 p.m.
A Successful Bazaar.
The bazaar at the Baptist Church was well
attended yesterday afternoon, and the sale
of work, though the weather kept many
away, was quite up to the expectations of
the Ladies' Aid Society, who conducted it.
Mrs. Howell, the president, assisted by Mrs.
Good, vice-president, Mrs. Newcomb, Mrs.
Cook and other ladies actively dispensed
the excellent supper provided; and Miss
McQueen the treasurer, with the help of
others' had charge of the different stalls,
most of which had fancy goods and hand
some needlework displayed on them. A
fruit stall occupied a prominent place, at
which Mrs. G. Whitfield presided. The
sals of work will probably be continued today. A very enjoyable programme waB
rendered at the close of the bazaar and
supper last evening, beginning at 8 p.m., in
whioh a number of well known singers and
musicians contributed their aid to the success of the entertainment, all those who had
promised to assist appearing, with the exoeption of Mrs. Leighton, who was unavoidably absent. The songa of Miss A. Glaholm
and Messrs. F. Field and G. Bate were very
much enjoyed as alao were the piano solos
and recitations by Mr. S. Craig.
The Poultry Association Meeting.
A meeting of the executive of the Nanaimo Poultry Aaaociation took place laat
evening, at which were present: Mayor
Haslam, in the chair, A. Dick, W. S. Lobb,
R. Nightingale, C. H. Craig, W. W. Walkem and XV. Hodgson.
A letter was received from Messrs.
Kitchin and Waterhouse, offering a prize of
$10 for the beat goose; also a communication
from Mr. W. S. Lindsay of Vancouver, who
made some objections on the score of a want
of special prizes. Mr. Lindsay's letter waa
discussed and the committee expressed regret that he was dissatisfied with the special
prizes offered.
Other letters were read from Hon. Theodore Davie, announcing his intention of attending the forthcoming poultry show, and
from Mr. Dempster, stating that he objected
to cutting ratea for auctioning the birds,
and would prefer to do the work gratuitously.    His proposition was agreed to.
The aecretary was instructed to apply to
the Government for half the grant of $ 100
in aid of the society.
It was resolved that Messrs. Sloan k
Scott be nquested to alter the conditions of
their prize so as to make the prize open to
the same district, but the winner of the
ohallenge cup to he barred out, and that the
secretary be empowered to procure the
printing of catalogues and have advertisements solicited for and inserted in the same,
in order as far as possible to lessen their
cost.

conduct and his death. They have not
had bis opportunity of being visible, not
his stntii;:-'ly scenic surroundings, not
perhaps the temperament which could
have inspired them to that farewell in
the niomeut of disappearance, but there
have been hundreds of men in the navy,
and even in the merchant service, who
would have died as bravely as he did.
It is tbe tradition of both services���
not, we think, the order���that the highest in rank on a ship in peril must be the
last to quit the vessel; that, as occurred
a few years ago, even a stowaway, who
is almost a criminal in sailors' eyes, must
take precedence of the captain in securing safety. The orijrin of the rule is, we
fancy, policy���that the state or the owner bo protected by the captain's authority to the last���but it has become an etiquette and a pride, and in tho records of
hundreds of wrecks you will find few in
which it was ever broken. "The captain was the last to leave the ship" is the
end of almost every telegram of marina
disaster.
In other words,discipline haa continued
for centuries under the pressure of the
same necessities, and the same ideas, has
extinguished in a class by no means devoid either of faults or vices, a most mt
tural and tempting form of selfishness
has induced a whole series of meu, many
of them hardly educated, to face a slow
and painful form of death rather than
fail in the performance of a professional
duty. That is a wonderful result of training, and it is one which makes those who
see it clearly doubt whether the modern
world is altogether in the rijrht path.
The old ideal for tbe formation of
character was discipline, hardship, pressure, alike from the law and from teachers and from opinion, and it certainly
produced many of the virtues, especially
that one of obedience, which the vorld
everywhere but on shipboard���where
there are few unrealities and men carry
their lives in their hands���has taken to
desbifiing! The modern idea is that discipline even for children is an oppressive
thing; that it turns men into machines,
and it quenches individuality���that it is,
in short, onpleasant, whereaa pleasantness is the end of life.
We see the result of the change In tha
disappearance of many forms of oppression, and a lighter atmosphere for men
to move in, and we see it also in the
slow disappearance of many noble elements in character. The old system,
working with good material, produces
as its perfect result Admiral Tryon. The
new, working also on the right material,
produces the British agitator.
Admiral Tryon was no doubt a brave
man and gentleman without help from
the service or its traditions, but the
service had annealed his character into
what it was, something for a nation to
be proud of, which would hardly have
been exhibiti d or have existed amid the
indiscipline and softnesB of civil life.
When one hears of such a man so meeting such an end. it is difficult not to
doubt whether liberty as now interpreted is such a perfectly good thing;
whether instant obedience to command
is not better training; whether pressure
from all sides, from service rules, opinion and hardship together, does not weld
men into something worthier of the aspirations which, while men have consciences, they never quite gut lid a_���

A*
ole husband at you, sen' him your tetters
���deuced silly letters. Joll'lark! Where
are you, Dolly?"
He roared out the last words so lustily
that Dorothy, a/sleep in the dark corner
of the alcove, opened her eyes with a
start, but her brain seemed still asleep.
She seemed to see a short fierce struggle between two men in the murky
shadow which lay just beyond her. A
blow from flashing steel, and one of them
fell headlong at her feet. She looked
down in speechless horror, and beheld
her lover's face staring up at her with
glazing eyes in the path of the moonbeam. While yet she gnzed from her
dark corner of the alcove, there came
creeping ghonl like towards the body the
form of the assassin. Slowly and deliberately he felt for the weapon that he
had buried in the heart of Ralph Kestrel.
He clutched it, withdrew it from the
wound, and carefully wiped it upon the
dead man's cape.
Then he rose, and for the first time
raised his eyes from the corpse. Ha!
He started violently and flung down the
knife. There stood in the full flood of
the moonlight an accusing angel taking
the likeness of Laura Kingdon.
For a single instant supeiatitious awe
overcame him; but remembering the
situation which he, Muriel, and Chester
had surprised that evening, he quickly
concluded that this apparition must be
Laura herself, for the likeness between
the sisters was so great as to deceive any
one in an uncertain light.
As he realised this he darted forward
aavagely to seize her. There would be a
sure silence in her death, as in Kestrel's.
But, in hia momentary hesitation, she
had seized and caught up the dagger
that had fallen at her feet, and, shrieking at him wildly, turned and fled like a
mad thing along the dark platform towards the exit-gate.
Should he fuilow her? Tho gate would
iurely be closed, and she could not ea-
cape him. But those resounding cries,
ahriek upon shriek, in the silent night,
must, if continued, raise the world, and
though he might still them, he would assuredly be arrested and condemned for
both crimes I
So Dennis Donovan, with furtive
glances to right and left, slunk away into
the long <Jark tunnel.
CHAPTER IL
LAURA'S VIGIL.
With her heart sinking under the most I
painful misgivings, Laura Kingdon paced
to and fro upon the rough stones of the
Street before the door of her sister's seem-
ingrjj deserted home.   Now and again j
she would tug desperately at the old bell i
in the railings, and anxiously listen for
the tinkle within.    Knocker there waa j
none, and the summons of the bell waa
so feeble  that a  sound   sleeper might
well be undisturbed by it.
L"ura clung to the hope that Dorothy
might be safe at home and in bed, all unconscious of a visitor. A policeman,
having passed her once upon his beat,
spoke to her when, returning, he found
her still trying to gain admittance.
"Don't they hear you, missr" said thia
friendly guardian of the night. "Gone
to bed, most like. Didn't expect you, I
dare say. No, I ain't seen no one go out.
Who is it lives 'ere? Dundas, eh? O,
yes, to be sure; I mind her. Widow
lady, ain't it? Married, eh? Oyes; husband's a sailor���away on a voyage. Yes,
I've seed the party; she's a rare pretty j turned it in its socket.
response  from   within   the
Still no
house.
The constable threw some mud up si
the windows, but still no sign of aa inhabitant.
A crowd of neighbours and night
wanderers began to assemble, and Laura,
to her dismay, found herself in the midst
of a very unsavoury and unprepossessing
set of sympathisers, ready to pull the bell
but, hammer the door down, or break
the windows at ttts least encouragement.
Laura desisted from attempting to tain
admittance, and begged the constable to
escort her to the nearest inn of sufficient
respectability to afford her shelter for the
night. Accordingly she was soon accommodated with a low-roofed musty little
bedroom at the sign of The Diving Dell,
a public house of uninviting aspect within two minutes' walk of Dorothy's house.
The landlady, i.i no very good-humour
at. being aroused from her slumbers, she
having retired with the toothache, received Laura with suspicion, and exacted prepayment for the room.
.Needless to say that Laura did not lie
down to i-est. Locking the door, she
crouched upon a chair close to the flickering flame of a cheap candle, and waited through the long miserable hours for
the dawn of a day which she feared
would bring some terrible disclosure.
Listening to the yells of belated drunkards tumbling homeward, the echoes of
many a street-brawl, the occasional
bursts of riot from neighbouring houses,
oaths, blasphemies, obscenities, terrifying cries ot beaten women, that came in
with many a foul river odour at the
window, which she had opened for relief from the stale stifling atmosphere of
the tavern garret, Laura endured a waking nightmare. The repulsion she felt
for ail mat oppressed Uoi* senses would
alone have banished sleep, but the additional burden of appro, legion for her
sister, the agony 6t speculation upon
the cause of Dorothy s i.bsence from
home, seemed to smite her heart and
brain with slabs of nil endurable anguish.
One o'clock���-half-past one���two! The
church cluck struck, and struck again
after intervals of bitter weariness; but
still she crouched by the guttering candle,
her cheeks pale and wan, her eyes staring in a vague terror at the visions of
her fancy.
At last the morning broke, and in the
first pale gray light she crept down the
twisted, creaking stairs and let herself
out in the street.
Perfect silence reigned. Not acreatnre
was to be seen. The fresh morning air
pierced to her bones as she stole on tiptoe, spellbound by the weird stillness,
back to her sister's home.
As she stood once more before th*
house, gazing up at its blind-drawn win-
<!o\ys, wondering if after all Dorothy
were there, and some dire tragedy had
held her from responding to her sister's
call, the world seemed to rouse itself,
and enter upon its daily course of toil.
On the river came a snorting steam tug;
from the wharves sounded the rattle of
chains; footsteps clattered and carts
rumbled in all directions; a noisy rooster
crowed suddenly with all his might, as
if to summon every creature, great and
small, to a renewal of life und industry.
Laura Kingdon shrank from this reveille,
j creeping like an outcast to the closed
I door, and crouching there in bewilder-
I ment and misery. She laid her hand upon
the brass handlo, and unintentionally

'nn, too. And now I looks at you. miss,
she's the very image of yourself. I didn't
take much notice of you as 1 was passing
before, 'cause I remember thinking it

woman ji. t your figure a-goin' into that

*he? Well, if you'll excuse me for saying it, it's a bit late for such as you to be
a-hanging about in these parts. It's nigh
upon 'arf-past twelve, that it is. The
place is a bit quiet to night, but there's
a rough lot as gets about 'ere sometimes.
Listen to that, now?"
Upon thestilluess of the summer night
there suddenly broke the clamour of
voices in high dispute, and amidst oatha
and hubbub a woman's shriek for help
pierced to their oars again and again.
"That's the sort of thing I was just
a-speakin' of." said the constable calmly
and sagaciously, without moving a stop,
in response to the appeal. Laura waa
horrified. The disturbance waa close
at hand, and tin; sounds seemed to indicate that some violent outrage waa being
committed.
"O, can it be my siatert" cried Laura.
"O, go to them, go! Hark, a woman ia
crying 'Murder!' Why do you not gof'

phlegmatic officer; "I've no butiiness to

"Can't you help to wake my sister or
servant? Mrs. Dundas has a servant
living with her here. Knock at the door
with your staff, please do! The bell ia
not loud enough to rouse them."
The constable complied, and created
such a din upon the panels that the windows of neighbouring houses were
thrown up in quick succession, and
rough heads were thrnsl out in tbe
moonlight, and rough protests and interrogations were made all round.
CHAPTER XII.
DESERTED.
No. 19 Shore Street the home of Dorothy Dundas, was a small, single-fronted
house, standing alone upon the shelving
bank of the river.
Its basement was below the level of
the road, aud its ground floor, consisting
of sitting-room and bed-room, correspondingly above it. Overhead, with a
small casement juttihsf out from the
red tiled roof that beamed over tho face
of the house, bright with its green shutters and white window-sills, were a gar-
rel and lumber cupboard.
Controlling with an effort the nervous
I tremor that hud seized upon her, Laura
! Kingdon entered the dusky little hall
and opened the door of tbe parlour on
her left. All was in darkness. She called
s ftly to her sister, but there was no reply-
Summoning her courage, she crossed
to the windows at the front and side of
ths house, and drew up the blinds. Then
she glanced nervously over her shoulder
at the room, dreading���half expecting to
see���she knew not what.
But in the dim light of daybreak all
seemed in order; the faded green "rep"
chairs, the old horse hair sofa, the square
table, with its g.ty biue-aud-white chess-
pattern cover, thuoubiuet-shaned mahogany piano with rod sill; front, the looking-
glass with its !>ri>"'l gilt frame muffled in
yellow fly-net ring, tue glass shaded gilt
cluck and* bright blue vases on the mantel
shelf���all were in their plates, looking
innocent enough; her eyes took note of
the stuffed fish, the model ship, the coral,
the prints of marine subjects, the seaweed, and other odds and ends which
distinguished tho room as the abode of
a sailor.    Nothing was disturbed.
With her heart beating a little less
wildly, she went to the door that opened
into the bedroom, ami knocked upon it
gently. No answer eame. She listened
intently for the breathing of a sleeper.

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