Washington, D.C., Nov. 10.���In a report
to the President dated October 18th made
public to-day, Secretary Gresham, after reviewing the history of the Hawaiian revolution, declared that the treaty should not
again be sent to the Senate. He say s in his
despatch to Mr. Foster, of January 18th,
describing the revolution, "Mr. Stevens for
the committee of public safety, took possession of the Government building, archives
snd treasury, and installed the pro
visional government at the head of
the respective departments. This being an
accomplished fact, he promptly recognized
the Provisional Government as the defacto
Government of ths Hawaiin Islands." In
Secretary Foster's communication of Febru
ary 15th, to the President laying before him
the treaty of Annexation with a view to obtaining the advice and consent of the Senate,
he says at the time the Provisional Government took possession of the Government
quilding, no troops or officers of the United
States were present or took any part whatever, in the proceedings. No public recognition was accorded to ths Provisional Government by the United
States minister until after the Queen'B ab
dication and when they were in effective
possession of tie government building, the
archives, the treasury, the barracks, the
police station aud all the political machinery
of the Government." Similar language is
found in a letter addressed to Secretary
Foster on February 3rd, by the special commissioner sent to Washington by the provisional government to negotiate a treaty of
annexation.    The statements are
At Variance With tho Evidence,
documentary and oral, contained in Blount's
report. Tliey are contradicted by declarations and letters by President Dole, and
other Annexationists, and by Mr. Stevens'
own verbal admission tf Mr. Blount. The
Provisional Government was recognized
when it had little other than a paper existence, and when the legitimate Government
was in full possession and control of the
palac, the barracks and the police station.
Mr. Stevens has well-known that hostility
and the threatening presence of the force
landed by the Boston, were all that
could have then excited serious
apprehension in the minds of
the Queen, her officers and loyal
supporters. It is fair to say that secretary
Foster's statements were based npon information which he had received from Mr.
S.evens and the special commissioners, but
I am unable to see that they were deceived,
Tho troops were landed, not to protect
American life and property, but to aid in
overthrowing the existing government.
Their very presence implied coercive measures against it. In a statement given to
Mr. Blunt by Admiral Skirret, the ranking
naval officer at Honolulu, he says "If the
troops were landed simply to protect American citizens and interests, they were badly
stationed in Orion Hall", but if the intention was to aid the provisional Government
they were wisely stationed. This hall was
so situated that the troops in it
Easily Commanded the Government
and the proclamation was read under the
protection of American guns, at an early
stage of the movement, if not at the beginning. Mr. Stevens proposed to the annexationists that as soon as they obtained possesion of the government building and they
read a proclamation of the character above
referred to, he would recgnize them as a de
J'aylo government, and support them by
landing a force from our warship, then in
harbor, and he kept that promise. This
assurance was the inspiration of the Government, and without it the annexationists
would not have exposed themselves to the
consequences of failure. They relied upon
no militury force of their own, for
th< y had noue worthy of the name. The
provisional government was established by
the action of the Amerioan Minister, and
the presence of troops landed from the Boston, and its continued existence is due to
the belief of the Hawaiian's that if they
made any effort to overthrow it they would
encounter the armed forces of the United
States. The earnest appeals to the American Minister for military protection by the
officers of the Provisional Government, after
it had been recognized show the utter absurdity of the claim that it was established
by a successful revolution of the people of
the islands. These appeals were a confession by the men who made them of their
weakness and timidity. Men ooncious of
their strength do not make such moves. It
is not now claimed that a majority of the
people having the right to vote under the
constitution ot 1887, ever favored the existing authorities or annexation lo this or any
other country. They earnestly desire that
the government of their choice shall be
restored and its independence respected.
Mr Blount states that while at Honolulu he
Did Not Meet a Single Annexationist
who expressed a willingness to submit the
question to a vote of ths people nor did he
talk with one on that subject who did not
insist that if the islands were annexed suffrage should be restricted so as to give com-
plete control to  foreigners   or   whites and
representatives have repeatedly made
similar statements to the undersigned. The
Government of Hawaiians surrendered iu
authority under a threat of war, and until
such time as the Government of the United
States upon facts being presented to it
should re-instate the constitutional
sovereign and the Provisional Government
was created to exist until terms of the union
with the United States of America,
have been negotiated and agreed upon. A
careful consideration of the facts will, I
think, convince jou that the treaty which
was withdrawn from the Senate for fun her
consideration should not be re-submitted for
its action thereon. Should not the great
wrong done to a feeble but independent
state by an abuse of ihe authority of the
United Slates be undone by restoring the
legitimate Government? An) thing short of
that, will not I respei tfully Bubn.it, satisfy
the demands of justice. Can the United
States consistently lusist that other nations
shall respeot the independence of Hawaii
while not respecting themselves? Our Government was the first to recognize the independence of the islands, and it should be the
last to acquire sovereignty of them by force
and fraud.
Respectfully submitted,
W. Q Gresham.

The Costa Rica Cace.
Washinc.son, 1). C. Nov. 10.���The U. S.
S. Alliance arrived at LaLibertad, Salvador,
yesterday. A despatch received at the
Navy Department a few days ago announced
the U. S. Minister was aboard. It is pre
sumed that this referred to Minister Young
and it is assumed that he has Minister
Baker with him, and that they are consulting respecting the firing on the Pacific
Mail steamer Costa Rica, although Minister
Baker was aboard the vessel at the time, he
would presumably be preludedfrommaking a
formal protest himself, as Mr. Young, is the
accredited minister from the U, S. to Hon
duras, whose officials directed the
fire upon the Costa Rica, in
the Honduras Port of Amapola. If
the question as to whether the guns were
fired directly at the steamer or simply
across her bows to cause her to stop in her
flight, should be settled iu favor of the first
proposition, there is reason to believe that
the incde.it may take a more serious turn
than was at firm, anticipated. In addition
to the complaint and request for a satisfactory explanation, that will doubtless be
lodged by the United States Government,
there is reason to believe that the Honduras
officers may have involved their country in
a difficulty with the neighboring Central
American republio that will prove
to be more difficult to adjust than
our complaint Advices have been received
in Washington from the South whioh state
that while Bonilla, who was the special object of the attack upon the steamer was a
native of Honduras, he is now an adopted
citizen of the Republic of Nicaragua. About
three months ago, he was elected a member
of the constitutional atsjmbly ofjNicaragua,
the highest Congress known to the country
and a body charged with a revision of the
constitution of the country. The members
of the assembly are known as "Invioables"
and their personal safel y is guaranteed by
the Nationals. At the time of the incident
Bonilla was on his way from Nicaragua to
Guatemala. It is stated that in his desire
to obtain possession of the person of bis
ancient enemy, Bonilla, President Vaequez,
of Honduras, ordered the officers of the port
to "Take Bonilla out of tha ship and if the
captain refused to surrender him to fi re on
the ship."
A New question Involved.
Hartford, Conn, Nov. 10.���An import
ent question is involved in a suit argued in
the Supreme Court today before Judge Geo,
W. Wheeler. It is whether a judgement by
default obtained against a citizen of the
United States in an English Court, will be
considered by the courts of the U. S. as a
bar to the trial of the suit on its merits here.
The suit is brought by Fisher, Brown k Co.,
of Birmingham, England, against VV. I.
Fielding, of New Biitain owner of the
National Wire Mattrass Co; of that city, to
recover the valua of merchandise alleged
by the defendant to be of poor quality.
Four years ago, Mr. Fielding was in Birmingham England, and was sued by Plaintiffs
who got judgement by default for $1,450, in
tiie. court of Queen's Bench. Our courts have
uniformed!}- reached the decision that in a
re-trial a case decided ia a foreign court
must have boen defended there. A new
question is raised, the suit having been defaulted without trial. Judge Wheeler reserved his decision.
The Escaped Convicts.
San Francisco, Nov. 10���Immigntion
Commission Agent Straddler is still in a
quandary as to what to do with the ten
Russian convicts brought down by the
whaling barques Cape Horn, Pigeon and
Charles W. Morgan. Six of them have confessed to being murderers and three others
are felons. The tenth is a Nihilist, and
therefore a political prisoner. The commissioner expects to receive instructions
from Washington to hand the nine criminals
over to the Russian consul. The consul,
however refuses to take possession of them
until he receives word  from St. Petersburg.
Opinion of Gen. Balsse.
New York, Nov. 10.���General Jacobo
Baisze, Consul-General of Honduras to the
United States, said this morning he had just
received a long despatch from his Govern-
ment in which no mention whatever was
made of the alleged firing on the United
States steamer Costa Rioa, and for that
reason he pelieves that there is nothing in
the report. "If anything of the sort has
occurred," said he, "It would have been
spoken of. I believe that all there was to it
was that a salute was fired in honor of the
American Minister, Mr. Baker, who was
aboard. This is a oustomary honor paid to
all officials in high standing when they enter
or leave our ports.

New York, Nov. 10���A break in New
England of nearly four points to 28 was the
feature of the market at the opening of the

the New York, New Haven and Hartford

to Boston. Upon investigation it was found
that the cutting off of trains was due to lack
of business and New England railroad
officials as well as New Haven directors both-
agreed on this. The reports were used by
the bears to depress the particular stock,
but the general market did not respond to
any appreciable extent except in the cases of

Bradstreet's Weekly Report.
New York, Nov. 10.���Bradstreet's tomorrow will Boy: Available wheat stocks
on November 4 amounted to 95,650,000
bushels, the heaviest on record at a like
dase, the total a year ago having been 93,-
173,000 buBhels. Wheat shows the less pronounced tendency to go abroad noted of
recent weeks. Exports from both coaats this
week (flour inoluded) amount to only 2,813,-
000 bushels. Last week the total was.
2,860,000 bushels, one year ago the total
was 3,885,000 bushels and two years ago
4,490,000 bushels. In the province of Ontario general trade is quite irregular on
account of the mild and unseasonable weather. In the provinoe of Quebec sorting
orders for dry goods are reported to show
improvement, but here bIbo is found an unfavorable effoot of continued mild weather.
Makers of cotton goods report orders plentiful, but the depression in the United States
is being felt, in the Dominion, more than
ever. The unseasonable weather is a feature
in Nova Sootia, where it has delayed trade
in dry goods and olothing. Bank olearings
at Hamilton, Toronto, Montreal and Halifax
aggregate $21,559,000 this week, 34 per
cent, more than in the week before, but
only 3.3 per oent. more than in the like

Washington, D.C., Nov. 10.���Ten days
or a fortnight will probilfly see the new
Democratic tariff given to tho public. The
Democratic members of the ways and meins
committee have not yet made their final
revision of any of the schedules, but a number of them are decided upon for all practical purposes and will not be changed except
in minor details. The policy of a revenue
tariff will be pretty closely adhered to in
dealing with raw materials and partially
manufactured good, and considerable cuts
will be made on finished products. The
Democratic members decided at the outset
that they would accept the declaration of the
Chicago platform regarding the legislature of
the last Congress as their rulo of action.
That platform declaring that the party indorse the efforts made by the Democrats of
ths present Congress to modify its most
oppresive features in the direction of free
raw materials  and   cheaper manufactured
foods than enter into general consumption,
'here are reasons for saying therefore that
the Democratic members under this provision will embody in the bills substantially
all the "Pony" tariff bills, which passed the
House in the 52nd Congress���providing for
free wool and reduced duties on woolen
goods, free silver ores, reduced duties
on tiu plates, free cotton bagging and free
tins. The whole schedule may be slightly
modified in the definitions of goods and it is
believed that the goods will remain substantially���thus the maximum being 40 per
cent, and the advalorem rates below that
figure being generally reduced five per cent.
The provision regarding silver lead ores will
be substantially that enacted by the 52nd.
Congress, that lead ore shall pay
one and one half cents per. pound,
but that ores in which the value
of the silver is greater than that of the lead,
shall be considered silver ores and exompt
from duty. The duty on tin plates iB likely
to be reduced two and two-tenth cents to
one cent per pound for the present with
perhaps a reduction after a few years to the
free list. The bills which passed the House
in the last Congress regarding cotton bagging and binding twine made both absolutely free of duty but there has beeu some opposition to those provisions on the ground
that they were not in h irmony
with other parts of the tariff and
a moderate duty may be retained.
Block tin will be made free from duty as was
unanimously voted by the ways and means
committee in the last Congress at the demand of the tin plate manufacturers. The
chinaware schedules will probably be reduced ten per cent, on the existing rates of
sixty and fifty-five per cent. The McKinley
Bill restored the duty on coverings, whioh
are a large clement in the cost of chinaware
and practically made the increase in duty
much greater than the apparent change iu
the advalorem rates. The Bilk interests may
not suffer much of a cut and the duties may
be left at fifty per cent, as under existing
law. They are claimed to be purely revenue
duties, and the duties on raw silk will probably be abandoned. The iron schedule will,
it is believed, give the committee a good
deal of trouble because of conflict of interests
between the New Englond members who
deaire free iron ore, and free coal, and the
members from Northern Alabama and
Eastern Tennessee, who desire the retention
of duty. Tne threatened deficit in the
revenue will be met by an income tax, if
some of the Democratic members of the
House who are urging the proposition are
to be believed. The pressure has been
strong to impose a moderate tax on incomes
about twenty-five hundred dollars in preference to putting duties back on tea, coffee
or sugar. Mr. Tom Johnson of Ohio has
protested very earnestly rgainst restoring
sugar duty and has had the support of
other western members in preferring a
moderate income lax to a renewal of the custom duties on the
necessaries of life. The exact rate of the
income tax has tot yet been determined,
but it will apply to all incomes above the
amount named, with certain allowances for
house rent, and for losses through fire or
other causes. It is calculated that an immense revenue c:m be derived from a very
small tax upon the incomes earned by professional and business men throughout the
country and this will equalize the disproportionate burden imposed upon the poor by
some of the tariff duties. The adoption of
the income tax will practically settle the
question ol increase in the revenue taxes on
whiskey and beer and tobacco which are
jikely to be left untouched.

from Jacksonville says: At a late hour
last night Corbett wired Bowden and Mason

training, a point already conoeded by them
in a previous message. For this evening
said he was ready to sign if this was agreed
to. Bowden and his partner insist that as
they put up $5,000 for expenses that Corbott
and Mitchell put up $5,000 each as a forfeit
in ease they fail to appear. They referred
him to Fox for full details. The Eiks club
here has nothing to do with the contest as
Bowden and Mason are the sole parlies interested.

"This road should be perfectly straight

from the ties by some non-conducting material. Between here ml New York there
should be four electric stations, with enormous dynamos driven by two compound

From these stations a tremendous amount
of electricity should be poured into the rail.
"The trains that would run over this

these conditions, which could be readily Accomplished by money, there is no reason why
trains should no', run from hcra to Saw York

"This would be an ideal road, but all those

would not be the slightest difficulty ia running tho Pennsylvania railroad much bettor

Bound to Pick a Quarrel
A gentleman was known by his acquaint*
ances to have certain infirmities of temper,
which had to be endured by his family. On
ono occasion a friend chanced to be present
at breakfast at the bouse. It was in August,
Mr. X. had not slept well, and all his British
blood was aroused. Ho found fault with
everything, and declared there was nothing
on the table fit to eat; After one thing and
another had been' sent away Mrs. X. had
Borne eggs freshly laid the day previous and
boiled to suit her husband, put before him.
He looked at them crossly a moment, then
took one up and broke it.
"How often have I told you my dear," he
said iu atone anything but endearing, "that
I did not want eggs in August? Do you see
bow light the color of that is?"
"Well," the wife asked, "what u* it is light
colored?   It is perfectly fresh."
"Fresh 1" her husband retorted angrily;
"that's nothing. Its light color shows that
there's no good in it It stands to reason
that in such warm weather hens get debilitated and lay debilitated eggs. If you molly
cared what I have to eat you would have
thought of that."
His Revised Wishes.
A man got into a side yard on Adams
avenue the other morning to find himself
surrounded by throe large dogs, each one of
which seemed perfectly willing to take hold
of him, and as he stood there in anxious
frame of mind a woman opened the door and
"Want anything?"
"Victuals or clothes?"
"Neither one, ma'am."
"But you came for one sr lb* other.'
"Exactly, ma'am, but sircamstanoes have

We have received from au esteemed cor
respondent a communication on the above
subject which, we regret to say, we cannot
publish. The business of a newspaper is to
supply the news of the day and discuss
questions of a public character which do not
involve the religious opinions of any seot or
individual. Were we to publish the communication above roferred to it would without donbt result in an endless religious war
in the columns of this paper, which we have
neither the spice nor the inclination to permit. The public discussion of religious
questions, we think, may be safely left to
the church and the press whose business it
is to deal with such matters. In
this age nearly everybody attends the
church services of some denomination
and almost every church-goer takes the
organ of his adopted faith. With these two
powerful agencies for spreading the Gospel
and inculcating religious doctrines at the
disposal of the public we think it ill becomes the secular section of the press to in
terfere in the matter whatever. We mean
no offence to our correspondent. We would
have treated anyone else under similar cir
cumstances in a similar way.
Should our friend favor us with a com
munication on any other subject of public
interest we shall be pleased to publish it,
as he is a writer of considerable ability and
could no doubt discuss any question in the
public press with credit to himself and pro
fit to the readers.
Now that Premier Davie and his colleagues
have ended, for the present at least, their
visits of enquiry throughout the various
parts of the Mainland we would respectfully
suggest that they turn their attention for a
time to this part of the Province. It is a
long time since members of the Provincial
Government paid a visit to this part of the
country to enquire into its wants and confer
with the electors with a view to ascertaining
what should be done to assist in the better
development of our resources and the opening up of better communication with the
surroundir.gcountry. Much has been said and
written recently concerning the movements
of the Premier and other cabinet ministers
by the Mainland and Victoria papers. The
deep interest taken by members of the Gov
ernment in the affairs of the Mainland has
been elaborately commented upon by their
supportars in the press in that part of the
Province���so much so, indeed, that we have
arrived at the conclusion that our neighbors
acrosB the water might now be left to take
eare of themselves, for a time at least. We
do not for a moment mean to insinuate that
the Government should not have devoted to
much attention to the Mainland section of
the Province. On the other hand we commend their action, and would now
ask that they accord this district���we
might justly say the moat important
in the Province���a like treatment.
There are many matters here which require
the earnest consideration of the Government the particulars of which can only be
ascertained by a personal visit of the Ministers. When the present sohool law was
put in operation under which the four citi��s
of ths province were required to provide for the support of the public Schools
in their respective districts it cannot be said
that Nanaimo was fairly deullh with by the
govermcent. Whether this was due to the
respresentativea from this section or not
we do not pretend to say, hut that somebody
was to blame no one will deny, Immediately
prior to the new Act coming into force Vancouver and Westminster were provided with
handsome new brick schools while N.naimo
was left with her old tumble-down shacks
without any compensation whatever for her
share in the general contribution towards
the expenee of the Vancouver and Westminster schools. This is a wrong which it
is not yet to late to remedy. Were the
members of the Government to visit this
city there are many other matters
of almost equal importar.ee which could
be      brought      to      their      attention.
Has Sir Richard Cartright moved to the
Northwest and been secured by the Vancouver World as special correspondent. One
would judge so by its Regina letter for a
more "blue-ruin" wail can scarcely be conceived than is in its issuo of Nov. 8th. Not
even in his most doleful days, could Sir
Richard paint in such dark colors, the
miserable condition of the farmers of that
country who, strange to say, are altogether
unaware of their affairs being other than in
a prosperous condition. Is there not a vast
amount of sympathy wasted on such an tin-
regenerate people as will not even acknowledge themselves to be badly off. In fact
most of them are in such circumstances, or
think themselves so, as to be objects of envy
to the people in that paradise of the blue-
ruin prophets across the border. The
World must wake up. Events on tho other
side of the boundary are acting as an object
lesson to Canadians at present, and "blue-
ruin" literature is at a discount.
Tenders have been called for clearing the

Mayor Harrison Will in Probate.
Chicago, Nov. 10���Tho will of the late
Carter Harrison was brought in'o the Probate Court yesterday and ia awaiting proof.
William Preston Harrison made a request
of the court not to allow the contents of the
document to be made publio until next
week. Judge Kohlsaat accidentally permit ed
the testimony of one witness to be taken
without the will being filed and further
proof was discontinued until the remaining
witeeises arrived in Chicago. It is said that
the late mayor instead of leaving $2,000,000
or $3,000,000, as was thought, left an estate
valued a trifle over $1,000,000, consisting
mostly of real estate. The document itself
consists of four pages, in the bold and
characteristic handwriting of the late mayor.
After providing for the payment of his just
debts, Mr. Harrisod made several charitable
bequests conditionally. The sum is not
large and is made to depend upon certain
contingencies. The residue of the estate is
left in equal parts to his children.
No Woman Suffered the Cruelty She Did.
Ciiicaoo, Nov. 10.���According to Judge
Tuley, who yesterday granted Mrs. Ella
Quickenboss a divorce, no woman ever suffered the cruelty she suffered from a husband. The husband was in good circumstances. He became angered at all his wile's
relatives and barred them out and sent all
the wedding presents back. He made her
walk 15 miles a day for her health, and
take care of two horses and do the housework. If she did not meet him at the door
every night and say "William, I am so glad
you came home, let me kiss you," he locked
her in a room and fed her on bread and
water. He kept her locked up eleven days
at one time and eight at another for this.
He stuffed clothes in the baby's mouth every
time it cried, and when Mre. Quickenboss
wept snd sobbed he counted tho boos and
made her stay in bed a day for every sob.
One time she was a prisoner in bed ten days
on account of sobs.
Jacksonville Syndicate Putting Up the
New York, Nov. 10.���A despatch has
just been received in this city from the
cashier of the bank in Jacksonville, Fla.,
stating that in response to the request made
yesterday by Messrs. Wm. A. Brady and
Billy Thompson, the respective representatives of James J. Corbett and Charles Mitchell, have just mailed a certified cheque for
$5,000 the amount olaimed by them for
training expenses. Another certified cheque
for $10,000 will be forwarded the moment
the principals' signed articles are received
by the Jacksonville syndicate. Therefore
the whole $25,000 will be thoroughly secured
before the men fairly commence training. It
is doubtless understood by the Jacksonville
syndicate that this last $5,000 is to be forfeited to Corbett and Mitchell, eaoh getting
$25,000 in case they are unable to pull the
fight off in their Florida arena.

Socialists Win Demonstrate.
Paris, Nov. 10.���The Socialists have decided to make a demonstration at the opening of the Chamber of Deputies, ��n Nov.
14th. They intend to march to the
Chamber and Socialist Members of the
Chamber will participate in the procession.
Police will allow the carrying only of tricolor and parades will be forbidden to shout
for Socialism. The procession will not
be allowed to approach nearer the Chamber
than Place De La Concorde. The Gaulois
asserts the Government is willing to grant a
partial amnesty lo the political exiles, including Rochefort and Count Dumont, the
leaders in the Boulangist movement.
Suicided While  Under tne  Influence of
New York, Nov. 10���A Sun special from
New Orleans says: Paul Schelze, superintendent of the beautiful Metarrie cemetery
of this city, killed himself in the cemetery
last night by shooting himself in the head.
He was a man of education. He was a
florist and engineer. He was au officer in
the German army and served with distinction in the Franco-Prussian war, winning
several decorations for his brave-y, The
suicide was supposed to have been committed while he was under the influence of
England's Warships.
Londox, Nov. 10.���In reply to questions
asked on the subject in the Bouse of Commons to-day, Hon. Sir Henry Shutleworth,
secretary for the Admirality, stated that
when the warships now building in the
Black Sea were completed, the Russian fleet
would consist of five first class and one
second class battleships, besides cruisers
and torpedo boats. Kogland, he added, in
the meantime had no cruiser equal in size or
speed to the Russian cruiser Rurik, but a
powerful cruiser was about to be commissioned to the British Mediterranean fleet,
which would have greater speed and a
heavier arnament than that vessel.

Dun & Co.'s Weekly Report.
Niw YoRk, Nov. 10.���R. G. Dun & Co.'s
weekly review of trade sayB: The failures
for the past week have been 301 in the
United States against 210 for the same week
last year and in Canada 37 against 26 last
year. There were four failures, with liabilities between ��100,000 and ��200,000 and
<S2 with liabilities between $5,000 and $10,-
000. The liabilities of failures for the last
week reported show a very encouraging decrease amounting to only $3,467,000 against
$7,413,009 for the preceding week and it is
noticable that while the number of failure,
does not materially decline as yet there are
fewer of importance.
Bishop Perrln's Visit to Conuuc.
In connection with Bishop Perrin's visit
to Comox we publish the following vory interesting history of the Mission which we
clip from the Courtenay Weekly Neics:
Everybody knows where the Mission iB���
where the Upper and fjower Prairie roads
unite to form the Bay road at Sandwick. It
was selected with reference to the future
and with singular wisdom. It is in the very
heart of the settlement. It has a history
quite interesting, and at the same time it is
largely the history of the settlement, which
latter, must, of course, be to a very great
extent eliminated in this brief sketch.
The first minister to preach here was the
Rev. J. B. Good, now of St. Paul's Nanaimo,
He bought the land which now belongs to
the Mission of R. H. Pidcock, who had preempted it. He then sold it to the church.
This was about 30 years ago l.'ev. Mr. Good,
then as now was stationed at Nanaimo, and
at that time managed to come here occasionally and preach.
Rev. Mr. Garrett followed Rev. Mr.
Good, preaching, however, only at irregular intervals, having his main work at
Nanaimo.   He is now tho bishop of Texas.
Rev. Cave Brown Cave succeeded Mr.
Garrett. He resided for two years at Nanaimo, during which time he erected on the
spot where the parsonage now stands a
-small log church, whioh was made to do
duty for the following five or six years.
The next clergyman to appear on the
rcene was the present reotcr. Rev. W. X.
Willemar, who had for some time previously
been stationed at Alberni, in charge of an
Indian mission. This was in 1871, at which
time there was no other church in the district. Everybody came to the little log
church, heard the gospel, got the news, and
often letters which had come up on the
steamer. Those were the good old days.
The prairie part of the valley was all taken
up and settled upon. Everybody had all
they needed, money was plenty, the people
social and contented, and the Mission in a
flourishing condition.
There was no parsonage, so Mr. Willemar set to work and put up the present one
with his own hands. One looking at the
house now, set in the midst of a garden,
among flowers and shrubbery, with clinging
vines, and sheltered with fruit trees would
hardly recognize it as it first appeared. But
thicker clustered around it is, with the
pleasant memories of early days, than even
the manifold plants, through whioh the
path leads to it from ths road outside the
The district was quits isolated in those
days, having only oonneotion with the outside world by means of the old steamer
Douglas which visited the Bay onoe a fortnight. Tho steamer brought their mail,
what they had. There was no post-office
until Joseph Redollo was appointed postmaster. He had his office in a little store
where the ancient Elk hotel still holds its
own. The people depended on the Hudson
Bay store for their merchandise. This was
located at the old Indian ranoherie, and was
kept for many years by Mr. A. G. Home,
father of the present postmaster at Nanaimo.
Seventeen years ago the present church at
the Mission was built with money collected
almost entirely in the district. About two
years after Mr. Willemar was married, and
it was not far from this time that the Hudson Bay store was removed, and nothing
further in that line was done until Mr.
Joseph McPhee opened a store in the building now occupied by Mr. Wm. Matthewson.
It seems a queer place, butstorekeeping was
a much more profitable business then than
now and the Indian trade far more valuable.
But we are getting down into the years
when everybody oan remember and it only
remains to add in brief a few interesting
faots. Since Mr. Willemar took charge of
the Mission he has officiated at 25 funerals.
That is a very healthy record���averaging a
little over one a year. During the same
period he has married 18 conples, and administered the oeremony of baptism to 120.
The first baptism was Jessie Gordon,
daughter of the late lamented D. W. Gordon,

Savaray Island Murder.
Constable Calbick and foroe are searching
for a sloop containing two men that called
in at Quathiaski Cove a few days ago. One
of the men purchased a quantity of salve or
ointment for a sore arm. This being considered a suspicious circumstance by the
officer he gave chase in his steam launch but
with what result is not known. From the
foregoing it would seem that any person
with a sore arm should give Nwary Island a
wide berth or lay himself liable to be considered "suspicious." The public are getting
impatient to hear of some authentio viows
in regard to the discovery of I he authors of
this brutal double murder. It will be some
satisfaction to hear of Supt. Hassey taking
up the trail but of course this is impossible
at present, being detained at New Westminster on the Kennedy trial.

A Denial.
The moderator of tho St. Andrew's Session writes this paper as follows: In Till'.
Daily Telegram of the 10th instant is an
item to the effect that Si. Andrew's Church
Choir of this city will assist in the production of "Rob Roy." It is only right that
the public should know that this ia not true.
St. Andrew's Church Choir, as such, knows
nothing about such arrangement. To the
Session of St. Andrew's Church alone he-
longs the power of making such arrange
ments and they have not even beeu consulted relative to the matter.
jK}��x9��*tO bo selected with
m pdE/%     special reference to the
space it is to occupy;
one with brunches firm,
not too broad, and quits
tall is best. The upper
branches should bo de-
ooratod before the tree is set up, in caso
they are too tall to be reached by step-
ladders. This can be managed bv undoing
the strands that confine the upper branches of trees as prepared for market, then
tying upon the tips of the boughs white
cotton-batting snow-balls, short loops of
popped-corn, strings of cranberries,
glittering ornaments, etc., etc. Tho
decoration of the tree may be more or
less elaborate, as desired. To save expense, yet at the same timo to insure a
brilliant effect, it is a g >od plan to hang
the gifts so that bright, contrasting
colors may set off the tree. Bundles
done up in brown paper are never
pretty; but dolls, bright-covered books,
gayly painted toys, bright silk handkerchiefs and white scarfs, sleds, wagons,
etc., should be placed in prominent

of gilt anil silver fringe, (these are sol 1

fringe to ornament an much apace as
possible, and cover lightly the front and
sides of tho tree with it. Then sprinkle
the glittering frost powder upon the tree

tree becomes a veritable crea ion of
fairyland. Santa as a dispenser of
candy-bags aud bonbons is always welcomed by the little ones. It he had a
fund of Christmas rhymes, stories And

The Oiiliinnnichu.
My first experience of Ouiananiche
fishing in l^iK) anil a copy of verses 1
wrote1 down in my note-book as a tribute to my new finny friends:
You are sailing along
Softly singing a song,
Whilst admiring the view
And the heavenly blue,
Deftly casting a fly
And hoping soon to spy
A bright Ouiananiche,
It begins to feel dull,
When, Oh! there's a great pull
And the reel cries swish.
Splashing, dashing, flashing
Plashing, lashing, mashing
Here, there, everywhere;
Leaping Into air,
Boiling, toiling, moiling,
Tackle straining, spoiling,
Fighting strong and fair
Every trick to dare,
Pluckiest of all the fish
Is the noble Ouiananiche.
Air���When we were first acquent,
The first thing this fish does when h��
is booked is to shoot up into the air and
so ho continues on most of tho time
until he either frees himself or is landed.
One fifth leaped twelve times before he
went into the landing net; another ten
times, and these are fair examples. I
do not think that they are more plucky
than black bass, nor do they make such
runs, but they pull just as hard and leap
u great deal more anil consequently the
sport is more exciting. A number of
four pounders were caught this year
mid one of S 8-4 lbs., but it is rare to get
them over4 lbs and very many do nol

Meat For the BithuuIuw.
The Imperial Government is advertising for a supply of animal food for the
Bermuda Islands, anil is asking for
lenders for the same. So far New York
has had a monopoly of the business,
which must be a profitable one. Some
years ago Aid. Frankland tendered more
than once to the Imperial Government,
anxious to introduce Canadian beef into
the islands, but New York Influence was
of s jh a character that they had the
"inside track," and his representations
to the British Government went unheeded, Surely tho time has come, iu the
face of McKinley bills and Behring Sea
seizures, when a country so hostile to
British Imperial and to Canadian interests should cease gaining by Imperial
patronage at the expenso of Canadian
loyalty. Canada can supply the British
garrisons at the Bermudas with both
live and dead meat equal to anything
shipped from the Unitod States and quite
as cheaply. If some of those interested
in the meat trado of Canada would draw
the attention of the High Commissioner
of Canada and of the Minister of Agriculture to the necessity of making an
effort to secure this trade to the Dominion, through their efforts the Imperial
Government would no doubt withdraw
its American advertisements and give
people loyal to it a chance.���-Toronto

forming the coat proper and the sleeves and

and collar of black silk. For this, very
handsome cut-steel buttons were used, and
it was worn with a plain black cloth skirl
with just sufficient train in the back to suggest that it was not intended for street

Interesting Observations Besultina; iu tba
Above Startling Query���The Amount
of Variation of Terrestrial Latitudes
���Delicate Astronomical Observation,
Some very interesting questions have
been raised by the results of observations
recently made in Germany on (he variability of terrestrial latitudes. It hits
been shown that the latitudes of Berlin,
Potsdam, and Prague diminished to the
extent of half a secord of arc from
August, 1889, to February, 1800, and
that tho latitude of Berlin increased
four-tenth's of a second from April to
August, 1SD0. It will be observed that
the whole extent of the variation
amounts to about one second of arc,
and that the phenomenon is periodical,
the latitude increasing from winter to
summer and decreasing from summer to
winter. Stated in another form, this
variation is just the same as if Berlin
were about 100 feet nearer the north pole
in summer than in winter. Observations
made in other countries, some of them
as long as thirty or forty years ago, have
given similar results, so that there
appears to be no doubt respecting this
singular variation of latitude.
The explanation that naturally occurs
is that the earth's axis moves slightly
under the influence of some disturbing
cause. Among such cnuies that are possible is the transference of large quantities of water or of air from one part of
the earth's surface to another. If the
southern oceans were deepened at tha
expense of thoso of the northern hemisphere, the axis of the earth would be
shifted a little in consequence; and if
the air should flow from one hemisphere
to the other so as to produce a great
inequality in the distribution of tiie
atmospheric pressure, a slight cbnngo
might be noted in the position of the
axis. In truth, the delicacy with which
the great orbs of the solar system are
poised is one of the most wonderful and
interesting things about them. The earth
is compelled by many disturbing influences to deviate now this way and now that
from the even course of its elliptical
orbit. The moon [mils it gently with
never constant force, und it obeys the
slightest solicitations of its satellite;
Venus and the giant Jupiter, and nil
the planets great and small, have full
license to hasten and to delay it on its
way, to roll it and turn it as much as
they can while it floats along; and to
every one it smoothly yields obedience,
replying their attentions ill kind.
��*>.t these aro all disturbances from
without, while tho suggested movement of tho axiB, owing to displacement of the fluids on the surface of the
globe, must, of course, have its origin in
the earth itself. From this sort of disturbance it suffers but slightly, if at all. It
lias beeu suggested that the geological
evidence of tho former existence of
tropical forms of life in the polar regions
could easily be explained by supposing
that a great alteration had taken place
in the position of the earth's axis; but
against this supposition has always been
arrayed the well-known tendoncy of a
body turning around its own axis to preserve unaltered its plane of rotation.
Smaller changes, however, than that
which would be necessary to account
for the geological paradox referred to,
might readily occur; and, as we have
seen, a vory slight change would be all
that is needed to fit in with the observed
alternations of latitude.
It is quite possible, however, that an
explanation of the latitude observations
can be obtained without resorting to a
movement of the terrestrial axis. It hat
beeu suggested that a periodic variation
in the refraction of the atmosphere,
resulting from the effects of the alternation of seasons, might produce a
sufficient shifting of the apparent places
of the stars to account for the obsorved
changes of latitude, without any change
whatever having occurred in the direction of the earth's axis. Another explanation offered is that changes in the
refraction of tho atmospheric ocean,
from whoso bottom we survey the heavens, may well be supposed to occur in
consequenco of tho aerial tides raised by
the sun and tho moon, and that seasonal
changes in those tides may produce the
regular alteration in the direction in
which the stars are seen, upon which
the npparent shifting of latitude depends.
Whatever tho true explanation may
be, the discovery of such imperceptible
motions as tho apparent turning of a
globe 25,000 miles in circumference a
few yards one way or the other, attests
both tho wonderful accuracy of modern
astronomical observations and the mar.
vellous delicacy of the vast machinery
of the universe.���New York Sun.

The Str. Joan has ceased its trips between

reason that thereis no money in it. This
shuts off Valdez Island from mail communication until other arrangements shall be
made. This iB a severe blow to not only

necessarily severed. The duty of the
Dominion government in the premises is
plain, and that is to give to the Joan a
sufficient subsidy to enable it to make its
regular trips there without loss. Until such
arrangements be made, the mail should
be carried up through the valley.
This could be done fortnightly
for about slii per tiip. This district has no
mail connection with the islands of the gulf,
with the exception of Denmnn and Hornby
Islands, except by the long roundabout way
of Vancouver, notwithstanding many of
them are but a few miles distant. Will our

Large Timber Wolves.
Mr. Marsh of the Fish Market, Commercial street, received the skins and heads of
two large timber wolves by Str. Joan yesterday from Qualicum George. It appears
that Qualicum George who resides at the
Big Qualicum was aroused from sleep yesterday morning by a loud bleating of his
sheep and other ories of distress. George
armed himself with his ever ready and faithful Winchester and sallying forth beheld two
wolves making short work ot the beet wether
of the Hock. George is a crack shot and in
less time than it takes to tell two bullets
had found their resting places in these fierce
and dangerous beasts of the foreBt. Mr.
Marsh will collect the Government bounty
of S.r> a head from Mr. Bray and forward the
amount to Quolicum George next boat. The
working patties on the Alberpi Rood reported during the summer the tracks of large
bands of wolves throughout the Quolicum-
Errington and Cameron Lake sections and
settlers have told of finding the carcasses of
deer lying hers and there through the woods
from iNanoose up. A quiet walk to Mr.
Marsh's shop will repay the trouble as the
heads and skins of these wolves can suggest
some idea cf their ferocity and powers of
