London, Deo. 9,���The House of Lords
virtually rejected the Employers' Liability
Bill last evening by inserting a clause which
would allow woikingmen to exempt themselves by contract from the provisions of
the measure. From the first, contest concerning the bill has centered upon this so-
called contracting-out clause. The Government will not be able to accept the measure
with the amendment, which is calculated to
render the whole law futile. The labor members of Parliament and ihe lenders of trades
unions have bound the Cabinet by both pub
lio and private pledges to withdraw the bill
in case the Lords should insert any provision
for contracting out, and now the ministerial
promises must be fulfilled. The mutilation
of this essentially popular measure adds to
the reactionary record against the Lords,
and means that a bitter reckoning will
bs made with them at the coming
election, such as seldom has been known
before in recent years. The Conservative
peers have been following without deviation the lines of Tory intolersnce, and all
measures whioh have been sent up from the
Commons, even thote of but petty importance, have beou freatod in this spiri*.
The first on the list is, of oourse, the
Home Rule bill. The rejection of it setmed
to give the peers courage to assert themselves, aud ever since they have extinguished
in rapid succession the smaller measures,
such as the Cnapela' Enfranchisement bill,
providing for the purchase of sites on fair
terms for chapel building as well as the better-meant proposals of the London County
Counoil, aiming to obtain from landlords a
fair share of the profits arising from improvements. The peers seem to think that
this record of legislation wrecking will
not recoil upon them and to have few feurs
that the people will lake revenge for this
misuse ot power for the benefit of the class
interest. The Radicals and labor members
say that the upper house is steering the
Conservatives straight to defeat. Oue ot
the loudest cries in the next election cam-
faign will be "Away with the House of
ords!"
John Morley, Chief Secretary for Ireland,
and Sir William Harcourt, Chancellor of
the Exchequer, have received an anonymous
letter threatening dynamite outrages in
Loudon unless Dr. Gallagher and the rest of
the Irish political prisoners be released.
The official report from Dublin Castle on the
recent exploits of dyuamilers in Ireland says
that the outbreak has beeu traced to an insignificant group affiliated with the old
Fenians. Hardly more than half a
dozen men comprise Ihe group and
they have been under police surveillance for
years. No trase of relations between the
���roup and any body in America can be
bund.
G. E. Russell, Parliamentary Seoretary of
the Indian Office, made a rather curious
statement in the House of Commons last
evening as to the condition of Indian finance
and the need of an Indian loan. He virtu-
lly attributed the ueoeeaity of a loan to the
reduction of tbe unused balances of ��1,852,-
000 and the obligation to spend ��8,000,000
by next April. The sum of the
situation is in fact as follows:���
Since the closing of India's mint
to free coinage of silver the Indian
council has borrowed ��4,800,000, partly on
six months' bills and partly by sale of debentures. In the coming year the council
mus' provide ��22,000,000, including the
pay meu t oi renewal ol this years' bills. Indian trade is in worse condition than at any
time before the closing of the mints aod the
Iudiau treasury is in a slate which causes
grave apprehension. The council's present,
ha i of ��10,000,000 must be supplemented
by another witlnu a year if atiylhiug like
order is to be restored iu Indian finance.
A WILD STORY.
Money Said to be Sent From English
Secret Service Fund to Defend Coughlin.
Chicago, Dec. 9.���The Evening Post ibis
afternoon says: "It is possible ihat tbe
Coughlin trial may I urn up in the British
Parliament as the cause of as exciting episode with Ihe probability of its bee miug
the origin of a serious breach between the
Gladstone government and the Radicals.
Mr. Libouchere lias privately declared his
purpoju, it is said, to rise in his place in
Parliament and question the Home Secretary, Atqiti:',, as ti what uu-ii t.icte may
be in thu common report thai ��1,000 sterling (85,000; has been sent from the Government secret service fund lo Chioago to defray the expenses of Coughlin's defence.
Such is the story ihat has floated across the
Atlantic, and which was gossip among
the Cronin people in Chicago today. The details of the story are
that the money was sent quite recently in
two installments of ��500 each. The diversion of the .ecret service fund to the aid of
lhe defence in the Cronin case is said to
have been due to the efforts of representatives in London of a Chicago deleclive
ageucy, which in time past has been supposed to have done considerable work for
the British Government in the way of investigation of alleged dynamite plots
against England, which were being concocted in the United Statea aud also iu securing
information concerning the sailing of dynamiters from New York for England. It is
said it was ou iuf'imar.ion furnished by tins
ageucy mat the arrest of many dynamiters
on their arrival in England was effected. This agency is said to have represented lately to high Scotland yard
officials that the information enabling
it to to materially benefit the English government has come from persons who had
received no pecuniary reward for their services, and who are desirous that Coughlin
should be acquitted. The donation to the
defense fund, herefore, is looked upon as a
recognition of such services. Coughlin's
friends here laugh at the story and declare
it to be a malicious invention of his enemies,
designed to convey the impression to the
Irish people here aud in Ireland tbat
Coughlin ia receiving aid from the British
g"vernrnent, and is theref re a traitor or a
friend of traitors."
Indian Finances.
London, Dec. 8.���A debate on the state
of the Indian finances was started in the
House of Commons this evening by a motion
to receive the report of the resolution ou the
Indian loan. Mr. G. E. Russell, parliamentary secretary of the Indian office, explained
ihat the unused balances at the disposal of
the Indian government had been reduced to
��1,852,000. By next April it would have been
obliged to disburse ��8,000,000. He must,
therefore, ask the House to grunt the power
to borrow ��10 000,000. Mr. Russell referred
at length to the decline iu tbe sales of council bills. This decline, he said, had entailed
a loss of ��5,400,000. The closing of the Indian mints to the coinage of silver had
necessarily disturbed trade. The present
demand of the government was calculated
with a view to meeting unexpected but possible contingencies.
Sir John Gorst, financial secretary of tbe
treasury under the last Salisbury administration, said that an entirely new departure
in Indian finance was now under consideration If the value of the rupee should fall
before April a serious loss would be the result. The proposed step required the fullest
discussion.
Sir William Harcourt, Chancellor of the
Exchequer, spoke ot the measure as a
matter principally of economy in the transmission of exports to India. This transmission, he said, was now at the lowest
possible point. If before April it should increase materially, the government might be
compelled to use the powers now sought.'
Mr. Goschen criticised the views of the
Government. He supposed, he said, that
the Government next year would have to
add the ��8,000,000 now in arrears to the
��17,000,000 ordinarily sold. He questioned
whether the change explained by the Government and regarded by them as calculated
to increase English exports to India, was
uot also of the kind to decrease Iudia's exports to England.
The report of the committee eventually
was agreed to, and the measure providing
for the Indian loan passed its first reading.
Mr. Thomas Gibson Bowles, the Tory
member for Lyme Regis, asked Sir U. Kay
Shuttleworth, the Secretary to the Admiralty, whether the Admiralty proposed to
continue to order armor piercing projectiles
from a French instead of an Engish firm.
The Seccetary replied that I lie action of the
Admiralty was iu accordance with the precedent. Every opportunity would be givon
to English firms to compete for the business,
but. due regard must be paid to price and
quality. He further said that it was the
9.���A certified statement intention to press forward in 1894 all the
construction of two new b.ittleships, one
first-class aud two second-class cruisers and
also a number of torpedo boats.
Parliamentary and Home Rule Funds,
London, Dec.
published by the anti-Parnellites is published to-day in regard to the Parliamentary
and Home Rule funds. The statement covers the period from Aug. 15, 1892, to Oot.
31, 1893, for the Parliamentary and Home
Rule fund��; and from Oct. 19, 1892 to Oot.
31, 1893, for the Evicted Tenants, fund.
The sum of ��25,021 was subscribed to the
former funds, and ��17,356 to the Evioted
Tenants' funds. The latter was increased
by grants amounting to ��6,500, voted by
the Irish Parliamentary party. The amount
subscribed in Ireland was over ��20,000; in
Great Britain, ��2,000; in the United States,
nearly ��9,000: and in Canada, ��2,000,
Trouble In the Chamber.
Paris, Deo. 7���The chamber this evening
igaged in a verification of the election of
members. When the name of Devogue was
called the Radicals sent up shouts of dissent.
Devogue indignantly declared that no act of
bribery could be laid to his charge. Berssy
de Anglas in violent terms denounced De-
vogue's election as secured by clerical pressure and bribery, and demanded an inquiry,
which was agreed to after a turbulent scene.

A Bomb Thrown.
Paris, D.c. 9. ���While the Chamber of
Deputies was iu session this afternoon a
stranger in the gallery threw a dynamite
bomb on the floor and it exploded. Pieces
of the metal were thrown in every direction.
Deputy Lemurs and six others were hurt
and seriously injured. M. Lemure is said
to be dying. The bomb burst close to the
head of Lemure, and instantly killed an
usher who was standing near. An Amerioan
lady in the gallery received a slight wound
on her forehead. Two other ladies in ths
lower gallery were injured. A man who
was sitting next to the bomb thrower was
wounded. All the occupants were panic-
stricken. Bits of metal and horseshoe nails
had evidently been attached to the bomb,
and were picked up. Order was finally restored and business resumed.
Apparently Don't Wont Lil.
Sydney, N.S.W., Dec. 9.���The statement that it was the intention of the United
States Government to restore Liliuokalani
to the throne was received with great disappointment. It was not believed the
queen would return to the throne unless she
was assured of Amerioan support. The
Hawaiian Gazette largely protests against
the restoration.
RUSSIA REACHING OUT.
She   Wants   Constantinople���The   Rival
Powers-France  Stands In With Her
London, Dec. 7.���Au important despatch
from Vienna, which the Times printed this
morning, setting forth that the Russian
government declared it imperative that the
Kilia arm of the Danube be made navigable,
the object of which demand was to secure
exemption of the Kilia branch from the control of the Danube commission, served to attract renewed attention to ihe situation of
affairs in Europe, which would need only a
spark to kindle iuto flame. That the various
countries ire fully alive to the difficulties
ahead there can be uo doubt, and numerous
incidents have come lo light within the past
few days to indicate that all the
powers are making prepara'-ions to meet
any emergency. In connection with
these recent developments, the statement
made to-day, on the authority of the Westminster Gazette, that five new battle ships,
a first-class cruiser and a number of smaller
vessels have been ordered to augment the
British navy, is not without significance.
The Globe tonight, commenting on the
Times' dispatch, asks if we are on the eve of
a revival of the slate of things produced by
the Crimean war. It says Russia's demand
that the Kilia month of the Danube be
made navigable is the most alarming and
ugly of the portents of trouble which have
been so numerous of late.
At the request of the Associated Press
correspondent, Poultney Bigelow, whose intimate relations with the highest officials of
Germany is well known, and who has just
returned to London after a stay of several
months in Germany, wrote the following on
the situation in Europe:���
"Russia wants Constantinople and is preparing to take it. Russia cannot succeed in
accomplishing this desire without first
fighting Austria. She cannot fight Austria
without fighting Germany at the same time.
Russia wants tbe mouth of the Danube, a
desire as strange as if France should wish
to re-oocupy Louisiana. Russia, therefore,
has one enemy particularly iu mind, that is,
Germany. This hatred of Germany was
borne of the comical friendship between
Russia and France, fir Friuce means to get
back Alsace-Lorraine. That France is
thirsting for war admits of scant doubt to
those who saw the delirious behavior of the
French people iu welcoming the
Russian sailors at Toulon and Paris
nor is there any doubt she is now
better fitted for war than she has ever
been. Russia sounded France and was
we:l satisfied with the result. When war
is declared the two are one, army aud
navy. The Ru.-siau government haa now
massed all the active army west of Moscow
and the great bulk iu Poland; is persecuting
the German language and Lutheran religion
in the Baltic provinces, and is fanning rather
.ban allaying the prevailing hatred of Germany. Russia has been observing great
secrecy of lite ��ith regard to movements
on the railways. Sometimes several days
h ive passed wh> n all traffic on the roads has
been stopped save that of the government.
Oddly enough, the money Russia has been
spending upon forts and stores his nearly
all been expended against the Geiman frontier. She knows she must settle with Germany before she can get the Bosphorus.
The German emperor meanwhile is awake
and knows what is pissing about him, but
knows also that he has much to lose aud
little to gain by a successful campaign.
German men of business feel this, too, and
that the next war will be largely devoted to
pulling chestnuts nut of the fire for England."

Montreal, Dec. 9.���Joseph O. Delisle,
244 Riohelieu street, shot himself and wife
at his residence last night with a 32-calibre
revolver while under the influence of liquor-
Mrs. Delisle is not seriously injured, but her
husband is now at Noire Dame hospital and
not expected to live.
Revenues and Expenditure.
Ottawa, Dec. 9.���The statement o revenue aud expenditure for November is as
follows: Revenue, ��3,184,170, an increase
over the same month of last year of $176,-
095; expenditure, $2,511,622, a decrease of
$220,118 For the five months ending
Novemboi 30th, the revenue has been $15,-
600,538, aud expenditure, $11,646,70S, showing a surplus of $3,963,708 compared with a
surplus of $3,904,987 for the same period
last year. The following is the statement
of the public debt on November 30th: Gross
debts, $300,543,752; assets, $69,834,663; net
debt, $239,709,089. This shows a comparative increase of $494,790 for the month but
a decrease of $18,970,884 since June 30th.
The increaae for the month was mostly
caused by the expenditure of capital account
which amounted to $2,143,353, divided as
follows: Public works, $328,190; Dominion
land, $20,898; railway subsidies, $94,235.

Winnipeg, Dec 9 ���An Edmonton despatch says:���May Huchanan was murdered

a reward of ��100 for information  that will
lead to the discovery of the persons engaged
illegally in making explosives.
A Savant Burled.
London, Dec.  9.���The funeral of Prof.
John Tyndall   took place  to-day from  his

Merely a Bilious Attack.
London, Dec. 8.���Considerable anxiety
was caused to-day by a report that Mr. Glad
stone was ao aerioualy ill that he had been
compelled to give up a trip be propoaed to
make to Brighton. It waa atated that he
showed the premonitory aymptoma of influenza. The representative of the United
Prea8 called at Mr. Gladatone'8 residence in
Downing street immediately after the report
was made public, and learned that the prime
minister waB merely Buffering from a bilious
attack. He also learned that Mr. and Mra,
Gladstone will go tc Brighton to-morrow,
Dr. Bond, the family physician, had called
to pay a final wait to Mr. Gladatone, who
has been ill, and this fact haa been distorted
into a sudden call to attend Mr. Gladstone.
London, Dec. 9.���Mr. Gladstone has recovered from bis bilious attack, and atarted
for Brighton to-day with his wife.
A Bad Train Wreok.
Spokane, Wash., Deo. 8.���The worat
wreck that has happened on the Great
Northern railway since the extension of the
line from Minot to the coast occurred at
Edwall, a small station 40 miles weat of
Spokane, laat night. A terrible head-end
collision took place. Engineer Joseph Shin-
sky aud fireman Joa. Wallace, of the westbound, were killed, and engineer Depew
was fatally hurt. Conductor Litsen and
several others were more or less injured.
The east-bound freight in charge of con
ductor Litzen left Harrington with orders to
run to Edwall to meet an extra west-bound
freight. The engineer slowed up at the west
switch and seeing nothing of the west-bound
train pulled slowly into the yards and up to
the water tank. While the east-bound
train waa standing on the aide-track taking
water, the collision occurred. The weat
bound train in charge of oonductor Curtis
came thundering past and aa it struck the
awitch it flew into the aiding and before the
engineers and firemen could jump, the traina
met in a mighty crash. Enginea and cars
were piled in a broken heap with the help
leaa victima firmly imprisoned in the wreck.
A moment later a flame of fire shot up into
the beavena a hundred feet high and in lesa
than a minute the wreck was all ablaze. A
Union Tank Line car just back of tbe westbound engine had exploded and ignited.
The surviving crews of the wreck made
frantic efforts to liberate the impriaoned
men before the flames reaohed them. Engineer Depew waa rescued from the fiery
furnace, but Shinsky and Wallace were
burned to death before the eyes of their
horrified comradea. Their appeals to aave
them were heartrending and teara coursed
from tbe eyea of the spectators at the horrible sight. The entire train of 15 cara of
the east-bound with their contents were
burned and five cars of the extra were consumed. Both enginea are a tot al wreck.
All that waa left of the charred remains of
the dead men was brought to this city in a
sack to-day. Au investigation will be made
as to who were the responsible parties.
Suppose Cleveland Refuses to Talk.
Washington, Deo. 7.���Some members of
the senate have been asking themselves
what the senate will do in case Cleveland shall fail to take notice of the request
for information concerning Hawaii, but
most of those apoken to upon the aubject
say it is not a probable contingency. They
admit, however, that it would not surprise
them if Cleveland declined to transmit
further information uutil after the next
ateamer shall arrive from Honolulu.
Prominent members of the house committee on foreign affairs evidently expect
congreaa to be called upon soon to decide
the Hawaiian queation. Chairman Mo
Creary yeaterday had an extended inter
view with the president, and it ia supposed
matters relating to Hawaii were under
diacuasion. McCreary would aay nothing
about the conference, but from the Bugges
tions he made it ia evident he expected
congreaa would deal with the matter. A
member of the committee said the president
would not think of using force while
congreaa was in session, aa that would be
an aot of war. There haa been a theory advanced that after hearing again from
Miniater Willie, and learning positively
that the queen cannot be restored except by
tbe use of United States troops, the president will present to congreaa the case of tbe
queen aa a wronged monarch, whoso government waa overthrown by thia government,
and aaaert that it ia now the duty of the
United Statea to restore the former condition, even by using force. Thia ia the idea
advanced by the frienda of the administration. There will be great opposition in the
house committee on foreign affairs to the
resolution of Hitt of Illinois on the ground
that it would not ba right, in view of a
further promised communication from the
executive ou the aubject, for the house to
give expression to the sentiments contained
in the Hitt resolutions. Hitt will make
every effort to secure a favorable report from
the committee of hia resolution, but aB it
will take at least three Democratic votes lo
bring about such a result, it ia doubtful if
he will be successful.
Hawaiian Minister Thurston left to-day
for Honolu'u. Before having he called on
Gresham. He waB not sent out of the
country, and does not go at the suggestion
of the aecretary of alate, but goes of hia
own accord, to adviae and consult with
those he represents. At the Hawaiian legation Secretary Haatinga said there was no
significance to bs attached to the minister's
departure. He had not left word that he
was going to Honolulu, and Haatinga doubted if the miniater would go beyond San
Francisco, where the Hawaiians are now
arranging their exhibit at the Midwinter
exposition, though perhaps he would continue on to Honolulu. Thurston's mother
and son remain in Washington City.
There is excellent authority for saying
that Minister Willis' present orders are to
employ no force of arma. It ia probable the
instructions by the Corwin are for him to
proceed in hia effort to persuade the provisional government to allow Liliuokalani
to be restored. It is intimated from a responsible Bource that the ex queen declines
to go back to the throne unless by consent
of the proviaional government leadera or a
guarantee of protection by the United
States.

HAt, FALLEN TH SOUGH.
A report comes from London that a despatch has arrived at that city from Melbourne, which states that the proposed
conference between Australian and Canadian
delegates which Hon. Mr. Bowell had arranged to take place at Ottawa has fallen
through. Trie is bad news if it be confirmed
by later intelligence. The Australian colonies
will make a great mistake if they refuse to
cooperate with Canada in establishing a
mutual trade, which would undoubtedly
prove beneBcal to both countries, and which
there is every reason to think would in a
short time grow to be of great dimensions.
But there is some little comfort in the
further announcement, that tho Hon. Mr.
Read, of Victoria, will visit Canada during
the present, winter toarrangefor recriprocity
between the Dominion and that colony.
This will beabegiuning, and when a begining
has once been made the other colonies may
one by one come into the arrangement. At
all events it is to be hoped so. The trade
between Australia and Canada ought to be
cultivated by both, and promoted by the
mothercountry. It would be simply folly to
neglect it.
of government. The people were prosperous
and enjoyed reasonabls liberties. But Dom
Pedro, although a very amiable man, was a
weak ruler. Marshal Fonseca was strong
enough to overthrow the monarchy and establish himself as a military dictator under
republican forms. In a few months Fonseca
was himself overthrown, and now another
civil war iB in progress, which, if successful,
will have no othar result than to establish a
new dictator. Mello is no doubt right
in saying that he has no intention
to restore the monarchy. His real purpose
if he wins is doubtless to make himself
master under republican forms. The talk
about zeal for the liberties of the people is,
we are convinced, nothing more tInn talk.
In the meantime the country is torn to
pieces with the dissensions of the rival aspirants, commerce and industry are interrupted, the capital bombarded, and ruin
and death brought on thousands of tho people. It would be well for the latter if both
the rival .ispiranU were hanged, and some
stable form of government established that
would give the people security aud peace.
It would matter little what such a government was called, whether a republic or
monarchy, if only it served the true purposes of a government and gave the Brazilian people security for life and property
Bitterly muat the latter lament the wise and
stable rule of Dom Pedro, whether he was
called an emperor or not, and bitterly curse
the ambition of Fouseca and the military
bravos by whom he was supported in over
throwing the best government on the
southern continent. Under the pretence of
establishing liberty he and his friends succeeded only in establishing anarchy and
civil war. Again it may be said, "Oh, liberty, what crimes are committed in thy
name!" and no one can say in the case of
Bruzil what the end will be, save only
general ruin and disaster and the destruction of all true liberty.
From the Nicola Valley.
Mr. Arch. Dick, Government Mine inspector, just returned from Nicola Valley,
brings news that prospecting for coal has
been actively carried on on the Nicola
Valley Coal Mining Company's, property.
Three hores have been put down, and two
tunnels from the surface have been run in.
Fifty miles of railroad is to be built very
shortly, on which work the company is now
nslung for tenders. Prospecting has been
given up on account of snow, hut will be
resumed again as soon as weather permits.
The company have not yet made public the
result of the trial bores. Mr. Davis the
foreman, who came down wiih Mr. Dick,has
left for New York.

UNCLE SAM'S  REVENUE.
The Republican press of the United States
is greatly exeroised ovor the proposed Wilson tariff. The San Francisco Chronicle of
Wednesday last says of it:
Before rushing the Wilson tariff bill
through Congress Mr. Cleveland and his
party should remember that it is a condition
and not a theory that confronts the government of the United States. Revenue must
be provided for the support of the government, and before tearing down tho McKin-
ley bill it will be at least, prudent to ascertain what will take ita place as a producer of
revenue. Siuce the first day of July, 1893,
the revenues have been decreasing all the
time. As compared with the same
months in 1892 the customs revenues
have fallen off month by month, in round
numbers, as follows: July, S3,000,000;
August, 86,000,000; September, $5,000,000;
October, ��6,000,000; half of November, $2,-
300,000. Nor are the internal revenues much
better. The decrease fur July was ��200,000;
for August, $4,000,000; for September, $2,-
000,000, and for October, $2,000,000. The
first half of November shows a gain of about
$100,000. These figures indicate a loss of
revenue of from $60,000,000 to $70,000,000
a year under the present rate of duties.
What, then, may the decrease be expected
to be if the Wihon tariff be adopted? No
one can estimate closely, but it is safe to
say that the falling off in the revenue of the
Government would not be less than $100,-
000,000 a year, and it would take a tax on a
great many incomes of corporations to make
up that enormous amount."
There is no reason to doubt, that Uncle
Sam's revenue will be considerably depleted
during the current year, but the obvious
remedy is to cut down the overgrown pension list by S100,000,000 at least. The Republicans converted the pension list into a
huge corruption fund; it will be Cleveland's i
duty to reduce it to something like reasonable aud proper proportions, When he has
done so it will be au easy matter to restore
the equilibrium botween revenue and expenditure. The heavily-burdened taxpayer
should surely find much relief when the
tariff has been reduced about one-half and
the overgfowu pension list cut down.
Cleveland's policy cannot, we think, be carried through without overhauling and large
ly reducing the Republican pension list.
The wilson tariff seernB to make a large reduction of the pension list indispensable.

THE CIVIL  WAR IN BRAZIL.
A stop should, if possible, be put to the
war in Brazil. It seems to have degenerated
into a purely personal struggle between the
oommander of the navy and President Peix-
oto, who is at the head of the land forces.
Admiral Mello denies that his purpose is to
re-establish the monarchy. He says his purpose is to overthrow tbe military dictatorship established by Peixoto and secure the
liberty of the people. But, if Mello succeeds
in overthrowing Peixoto, what security will
the country have that he will not establish
another dictatorship in his owu person ? It
is the usual course in South American republics for the man who gets the upper hand in
a civil war to make himself dictator. If
Mello wins, there is every probability that
he will do tho same. It will in such case
only be for the unfortunate people a change
of masters���a naval dictator in place of'a
military one. The Brazilians under the rule
of Dom Pedro had a mild and a stable form

NORTHFIELD NOTES.
I 	
The Northfield miners will hold a meeting
to-day to discuss the proposed reduction in
pay.
The roads are in bad condition around
this locality. Slush, mud and pools of ice
cold water, with here and there a regular
mud hole, are the prevailing conditions.
Mr. John Medley, teamster at the North-
field powder works, left yesterday morning
for Westminster. It is whispered around
amongst the boys that Jack is about to
harness himself to a Royal City belle.
This morning's meeting of the Northfield
miners will decide whether they will accept
the 25 per cent, reduction or not. It is to
be hoped they will come io some amicable
terms, as it will be a big blow to Northfield
if the mines are shut down.

THE SITUATION IN HAWAII.
Tbe Country Trembling on the Brink of
War.
Saf Fbanuisco, Deo. 9. ��� The United
Press correspondent at Honolulu writing
under date of November 22nd, per brig W.
G. Irwin, which arrived late this afternoon,
says: "No positive knowledge has yet transpired as to Minister Willis' instruolions or
intended action. The general belief is that
he came expecting to restore the ex-queen
to the throne, either directly or by the intervention of a popular vote. It is also believed that the serious obstacles existing to
such a course have caused delay and reference to Washington. The mystery maintained and the apprehension created have
produced great disturbance and irritation of
the public mind. The tension of anxiety
and anger is greater than at any date sinco
the queen was dethron- d. This is wearing,
painful and depressing to all publio interests.
Among the obstacles to restoration is the
refusal of the queen hereplf, unless she receives the strongest guarantees that theUnited
Sta te8 forces will maintain ber uponthe throne,
knowing that she would otherwise be immediately overthrown ugain, and severely
dealt with. Again, some 1,500 rifles with
ammunition are in private hands, chiefly
Americans, ready to remove her at the
earliest opportunity. Further, the provisional government are absolutely determined
to make no concessions and will firmly
maintain their position, yielding it only to
actual war made upon them by the superior
forces of the United States. Added to these
obstacles, it is well known that Admiral
Irwin and the officers under him are utterly
reluctant to make war, probably involving
bloodshed upon the American people of
Honolulu, their own friends and daily associates. If the American minister persists in
the intentions generally ascribed to him, he
has a difficult and perilous task. His own
life as well as that of the ex-Queen would
be in the greatest danger as soon as her intentions became known. In an interview
on the 16th Minister Willis said:���'The
whole Hawaiian question is now in abeyance, and nothing that the newspapers can
say or do will alter the situation one
iota, I make this statement on my own
responsibility and in the hope that
it will allay the present excitement.

TEMPORARY INSANITY.
Tho   Verdict   Rendered on the Death of
Isabel Johnson.
Yesterday afternoon Coroner J. P. Planta
held an inqueBt into the death of the late
laabel Johnson. The jury was empanelled
as stated in yesterday's XkleobaM.
Mr. W. E. McCartney, manager of the
Nanaimo Pharmacy, gave evidence detailing
the sale of a box of rough ou rats to the
deceased. He had identified the deceased
aa the purchaser of the poison. The preparation was composed largely of arsenic, and a
single box of it would be enough to kill half
a dozen people. Two grains of arsenic was
a fatal dose to persons unaccustomed lo its
use. The quantity of the poison taken from
the box contained at least twenty grains of
arsenic. It was not soluble in water, though
water might be used as a vehicle, but in
that case some of it would remain in the
vessel used. Rough ou rats was Bold as a
patent preparation, and it was not required
that purchasers of it should register aa with
other poisons.
There was no trace of arsenic found in the
cup deceased used, which was produced for
examination.
John Lang, a teamster, testified that
about a quarter after seven on Thursday
evening he delivered to Isabel Johnson a
letter. Witness was not certain that she
read it, though she looked over it. There
was some couversation between them, and
she asked him if WilkinBon, the writer of
the letter, would come into town on Sunday.
The letter had been left at the Shamrock
stables, where witness worked, by Wilkinson's sister.
Henry Wilkinson, a miner, living at Nanaimo river, testified that he last saw the
deceased the Sunday night previous, Dec.
3rd. He had not been in town since then.
He wrote her a letter on Thuraday.and sent
it to the Shamrock stables by his sister, to
be forwarded. He said in it that he was
unable to come to town on Sunday according to his promise; he had heard she had
favored another man, and if she still did so,
he would have to make a change. The person meant was Lang. He and the deceased
were seen together in town on Monday evening, and Charles MoDonald had told the
witness of it.
Wilkinson waa asked by John Johnson,
the girl's father, if he and Isabel had not
quarrelled a week ago laat Sunday.
Wilkinson admitted that they had fallen
out then, and had agreed to have no moro
to do with each other. The following Saturday, however, they had made up their quarrel. There were no violent words in the
letter ; he had simply said that, if she continued to go with Lang, he would have no
more to do with her. He did not think anything in the letter could have made her de-
stry herself. Isabel did not care for him
more than anyone else, he thought. He had
been paying attention to her about four
months.
Dr. Praeger gave evidence aB to death
being caused by an irritant poison.
Mary Ellen Johnson, the deceased's sister,
then detailed her sister's actions on the
evening preceding her death, and the symptoms of her sudden sickness. Her sister had
seemed to oare for Henry Wilkinson ; she
had spoken of him frequently.
Mr. John Johnson, the girl's father described the circumstances of his daughter's
death as he knew them. He knew of no
reason for her action.
Mr. Hy, Proctor, of the Crescent drug
���tore detailed his refusal to Bell rough on-
rats to tbe deceased. The preparation was
on sale at all the stores which sold patent
medicines. Customers could procure the
article at almost any grocery if druggists
refused to supply them.
The coroner spoke favorably of Mr.
Proctor's action but said that he did not
wiBh tojimply anything derogatory to anyone else; and thensummarizeedtheevidence,
touching on its most important points.
The verdict returned, after a short deliberation, was to the effect that the deceased, Isabel Johnson, came to her death
by her own hand by taking poison, rough-
on-rats, during a fit of temporary insanity;
with a rider recommending that the attention of the legislature be drawn to the necessity of restricting the tale of the poison,
and that druggists only should be allowed
to sell it.
The funeral will take place this afternoon
from the farrfily residence at the corner of
Haliburton and Grace streets, under direction of Mr. A. E. Hilbert. Misses Estella
Barrett, Maggie Frew, Edith McDonald,
Anna Wilks and Eliza Hughes will act as
pall bearers. The services will be conducted by the Rev. D. A. McRae.

The Largess Statue In Precious Metal.
In tbe center of Montana's mineral exhibit at the Columbian exposition the chief
of all attraction stands the silver statue of
Justice, the largest figure ever cast in any
precious metal, so far at least as revealed
in the annals of history, ancient or modern.
Justice stands with one foot on a globe,
and the entire outline of the splendid and
massive figure gives the idea of a forward
movement. The goddess wears a tunic
which drapes the figure from the swelling
breast to a point just below the knee, but
the sculptor's work has revealed every line
of the nether limbs. The left arm holds
aloft the historic scales, and the right
grasps firmly the familiar two edged sword,
which points downward at an angle of 15

The figure rests npon the back of a Montana eagle, also of solid silver. From tbe
eagle to the top of Miss Ada Rehan's head
tbe statue measures 9 feet aud rests upon
a plinth of solid gold, the base being formed of mineral bearing rock. The whole has
a beighth of IB feet. The Jewelers' Circular, which illustrates and describes this interesting production, further notes the fart
that the bandage has beeu removed from
the eyes of Justice, who, for no satisfactory
reason, has groped her way in darkness for
200 years or more. The first sculptors, the
earliest painters, the primeval wood engravers, all depicted Justice with very wide

average by some oue to take his own life. It
seems that Saxony is the quarter of the
globe where suicide is the most popular,
the ratio there being 469 suicides in 1,000,-

self destruction, the proportion there being

hopes. Follow him at once���watch him
���watch over him."
"Be easy, be easy I" replied the Irishman with a sinister smile. "I will take
the best of care of Mr. Ralph Kestrel
this night, Miss Muriel, for your sake
and my own; and remember, then, that
it's yourself as put the business into
Dennis iJonovan's hands to act for ye as
seems best."
"As seems best to you, Dennis; yes, as
it seems best to you."
Muriel O'Connor passed from the room
and upstairs to her bedchamber, sobbing
convulsively; ami Dennis* Donovan, with
the same stjange smile distorting his
features, left the house steaihily by the
gate in the wall, nnd followed a distant
figure that staggered along in the moonlight.
As he went, his hand clutched the
dagger that he had snatched from the
wall, and he muttered over and over
again the words:
"For your salce and my own! for your
sake and my own I"
CHAPTER VIII.
ON THE UNPEKGKOUND.
Muriel O'Connor, locked in her betl-
���chamber, safe from the observation of
all,' abandoned herself to the bitt r less
of love's dis ipj oiumient and despair.
The room was in darkness, save whira
the moonlight streamed in at the dia-
monJ-paiied window and fell upon a
couch at the foot of the bed; and there
lay Muriel prostrated with grief, her
toars flowing beneath the tumbled
masses of her hair.
Presently there came a gentle tap at
the door, and, although she did not respond, the raging.of her sobs was subdued a little. The knocking was repeated, and Muriel raised her tear-stained
face into the moon rays to listen, but
still she did uot answer the summons.
Then came a gentle voice saying "Muriel 1
Muriel dear!"
The tears ceased to flow, and her fair
forehead wus knitted into a frown, but
still she made no response.
"Muriel dear! Muriel! Is there any-
thing the matter?" came Laura's soft
tones through the door.
Muriel rose to a sitting posture, and
her eyes flashed angrily in the flood of
light as sho answered shortly,
"No."
"Are you in troublef"
"No."
"Are you ill���in pain?"
"No."
"Will yon not let me in, then ? I have
something to say to you."
"I do not wish to be disturbed."
"I want to tell you that I am going
out."
"Going outr
"I shall not be back again to-night?".'
"What?"
Muriel rose to her feet, and flung back
the loosened hair that fell about her
shoulders.
"I am going to my sister."
"To your sister?   To-night?   Why?"
"Let me in, and I will tell you."
Muriel moved a pace towards the door,
stopped, hesitated, and finally turned
away.
"No," she answered in a cold hard
tone.    "Go���to your sinter."
Laura Kingdon paused for a moment,
surprised and hurt by this unaccustomed
treatment; then, connecting it with the
.situation that had been witnessed in the
drawing-room, her pride and scorn of
all uncharitable misconstructions restrained her from saying more than:
"I shall be back on Monday. Goodbye I"
To which Muriel O'Connor vouchsafed
no reply.
With a heart too full of serious misgivings on other grounds to take much
heed of this, Laura descended the stairs
,and passed from the house. A pale angry
face at an upper window watched her
as she hurriedly turned the corner of the
road, and took the same course that
Ralph Kestrel had taken shortly before;
and far into the night a furious woman
paced to and fro in a moonlit room, in-
veighinuriu desperate terms against love
and friendship.
Ten minutes later, two trains drew up
at the platform of an Underground railway-station. Into one, bound eastward,
stepped hastily a young woman clad in
dark attire, a veil drawn over her face
ao as almost to conceal the beauty of its
contour and the deep lustre of !' r ,.;.
eyes; while from the train going * ��� ���
alighted a counterpart of this truvi tor,

Kingdon was speeding to her. sisters
home, while Dorothy Dundas stoo.
trembling on the platform of the railway station whence her sister had do-
parted in quest of her.
CHAPTER IX
DESERTED.
Alone in a second-class carriage o'
the train that burrowed its way east
ward, Laura Kingdon sat scanning with
anxious interest the- contents of that
little bundle of letters which she had obtained from Ralph Kestrel. They told a
melancholy story of blind infatuation,
dread of the home-coming of a huspuu .
whose devotion had tailed to win the allegiance of a weak romantic nature.
They were mad letters in which the
writer abandoned herself to the tyranny
of passion, and '!ung off every __trai��ing
influence ofprudonco and honour, 7 ira
read on through page upon page of ..^ily,
olosely'writtwi, reckless, full of yoarnin ;
for reciprocated love, full of tempestuous upbraiding for coldness and lack ot
sympathy and responsa She real, and
her soul grt ,- sick within her; even her
first fierce deti rmiuation to save seemed
to faint by the way,
When she had left the drawing-room,
ostensibly to search for Lord Willmore
in the garden, that purpose had been
driven from her mind by a burning
anxiety to know the truth as to the relations existing between Kestrel and her
sister. Dorothy's was one of those
shallow natures almost incapable of keeping a secret, although with cunning
enough to attempt deceit; and it had not
overtaxed Laura's penetration to discover signs of a dangerous predilection
on the part of her sister for Kestrel.
Her offers to come and reside with
Dorothy during the absence of Captain
Dundas had been again and again obstinately rejected, and this fact alone had
caused Laura unceasing anxiety. Her
remonstrances had at last caused a rup
ture in the affection that bound tie-
sisters closely during all their lives, and
it was easy for Laura to perceive that
some powerful disturbing influence was
at work to so counteract the forces oi
nature and duty.
The imminent return of Dorothy's loyal-hearted and unsuspecting husband���
who, when leaving for the Antipodes,
while the winter yet lay heavily upon
London, had taken Laura apart for a
moment on the snow-swept deck, and
had given her special charge of her
sister, for his sake���increased the terror
of the situation.
With the key to all the dreaded truth
in her possession, Laura cared little for
her personal interests. The embarrassment of being discovered kissing a libertine's hand affected her little, as we have
seen, and even the newly-pledged love of
Lord Willmore had become second in
her thoughts. As she stepped into the
garden she saw that the lamps had been
lighted in the summer-house across the
lawn, and thither slin quickly bent her
steps. Flinging the letters hastily upon
the table, she took up the rin-t that came
to hand, and, in the right of her sisterly
guardianship fell to perusing it. The
letter proved to be of recent date and
ran thus:
"My own Cruel Beloved,"���He in
coming home; he will be here on Sunday
at the latest. Why have you deserted
me? Why do you not write? I love you
so dearly that my love is all my life.
His return is to me like the coming of
an executioner. He has been good to me,
and I dare not look him in the face. I
cannot welcome him home; I cannot
bear the thought of long years in the
custody of my gaoler. I dare not think
of one hour in the presence of my judge.
Death would be better far than that Ben
and I should ever meet again. Save me,
Ralph! save me, I implore you, from my
husband or from death! Night and the
day is one ever-growing fear. I shall go
mad if you do not come between me and
despair of living again with one I have
never loved.���Yours, yours, yours,
"Dorothy Dundas."
"MyGod!" cried Laura aloud, dropping her hand with the letter in it upon
the table in the full light of the lamp.
"My God! if he had read this!"
She raised her eyes, and Lord Will-
more stood before her. Instinctively
she clutched at the scattered letters,
and, gathering them together, rose and
6tood over' them like a tigress over
her young. A deathly pallor overspread
her face, that had been burning with the
shame of what she had read; the gentle
calm and purity of her countenance was
all gone, for amidst the conflicting
emotions of her heart she took to herself
all the guiltiness of her sister, and suffered a tenfold humiliation. To a purity
without stain, to a truly unselfish nature,
to a vivid sense of honour and chastity,
the disgrace of one near and dear is more
acute than if it were personal.
In the presence of her newly-sworn
Idver Laura Kingdon felt her sister's
abasement as if it were her own, And
he, standing there in the lamplight rigidly, bis features aghast with dismay,
pallid as hers, his heart scarcely beating
in his breast���what were his thoughts,
his fears, his convictions of the meaning
of what he had heard and saw? He
could not doubt that Laura herself had
been the writer of those letters. He was
acquainted with her penmanship, and
the glimpse he caught had shown the
characters to be apparently identical
with Laura's writing. And had she not
impulsively gathered them from his
sight? Had she not previously tremblod
in the presence of that drunken roue,
and shamelessly sought a private conference with a man who boasted of his
licentiousness?
Clearly as the day, Ernest Willmore
��aw himself as the dupe of intrigante
whose sordid haste to better her social
condition had outstripped all discretion.
And yet his faith iu her goodness was
etrongor than he realised. It was an
instinct, like his belief in God.
His primary thought was, "I had
meant to make this woman my wife,"
and he was conscious only of a culmination of damning evidence against her.
For some moments, that seemed an
age to both, he stood silently confronting
her. She hesitated to speak, for her
thoughts were bewildered. She was conscious of occupying a false position, but
knew not how to rectify it with a due
regard for her sister's secret. She awaited his expected interrogation, and strove
to prepare answers that might satisfy
him and yet evade the nnsrwolrablo
truth. And Willmore, distracted by the
indefiniteness of his attitude towards
her, paused to find words that could fitly
and yet temperately express bis indignation, distress and nms teMM\ i__ to
frame such an indictment against her M
he might be justly entitled to make.
And as they stood justly facing each
other in the trammer-house, soft strains)
of melody floated forth upon the night
air and mingled with the rustling ot a
wave of wind that rocked the trees and
bushes of the garden; and the voice of
Muriel O'Connor pealed out like the l_w
of a siren.
"Your friend is in the drawing-room,1*'
was all that Laura Kingdon found word*
to say. , ��� -

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

A Thorough Suooess.
The concert at tha Y.M.C.A. rooms last

any time when they should wish to do bo, to
get up and make a speech at a public meeting with conridouce.
