sect   iu   Hie   Hawaiian   correspondence to
C ingress just us soon as the House met at, 11
o'olock this miii'uiug.    Aa the aieamer Mar-
iposa, conveying  the  laiest   tolegnphic in-
BtruotlODB  tu  Minister   Willis advising him
that he might   now cons der   hia speui.il iu-
structiona fully c miplied  with aud * h it fut -
thel* instill tiona   muat   he dictated hy Congress, sailed from  San  Francisco at 2 a. in.
this morniug.   There Was no danger of ihosi
instruc, iunsreachiug Mr. VVilliafirs*, through
lhe newspapers, which   is said to have been
the chief inuilve f**i postponing tllu ine-sag**
until   to-day,   notwithstanding    that   t,ls
postponement   deprived    the senate  of   the
Opportunity   of receiving    t.lli- Ines-iyc a . I ho
same time aa the   House.     All  d'epartuieni
estimatis oi the length of   the  correspond
euce   were   far exceeded by the documents
themselves.        Ten     or     twelve     thousand    words    was   the    estimated   limit of
their length, but   the   documents  as  laid
before  Congress  will  probabl)   make from
40,000 to 50,000 words when printed in full.
The most important feature of   the   correspondence wis, of course, Mr. Willis' strong
despatch, No. 3, of   November   16th, 1893,
which the president   had   previously   withheld from publication,    Next  to that in interest waa Mr. Dole's caustic   reply   to Mr,
Willis' demand for surrender,   which, how
ever, had   previously   hem   anticipated  t
some extent  iu   Uultul   Press   despatches.'
Bo'weipii thei" two   t**imiml   points  in th.
correspondence, Mr. VV il i is' graphic history
of current even!a, and   his comnieuts   up**u
tho eharacter of the   queen's   advisers, and
tin* kind of government she desired to maintain if re-established, form a tunning thread
of   absorbing   interest.    It   was   promptly
noticed   that   the   alleged   lengthy cypher
despatch,   which   certain press   despatches
asserteil had been   brought   by  the Corwin
from Mr. .Willis lo   Mr.   Gresham,   had no
place in thia   complete   correspondence and
that   Secretaiy   Gresham's   repeated assertions that the ouly advices brought   him by
the Corwin weio transmitted by   mail were
fully I orne */UlJby the published details.
The president's message accompanying the
correspondeuue was very  brief.    It  was  as
follows:      "To   the    Conuress,   Kxecutive
Mansion, January 13th,   189*4.    I  transmit
herewith copies of all despatches  from  our
minister at Hawaii   relating in anv way  to
political affairs in that country, except Btteh
as have been heretofore laid before Congress,
I also transmit a copy of the  last  instructions to our minister, dated  January  12th,
1S9-I, being the only instructions to him not
alreaily sent to Congress.    In  transmitting
certain   currespondeuee   with  my   message
daied   December   13th, 1893, 1 withheld   a
deapateh from our   present   minister, numbered three.aud dated November 16th,1893,
aud   also   a   despatch   from    our    former
minister, numbered 70, and  dated  October
8th, 18m.     Inasmuch as the contents of the
despatch of November  16 h,   1S93,  are re-
fen td to in I lie despatches of a more receut
date* now seut to Congress, and inasmuch as
theie seems uo longer  sufficient  reason  for
withholding Baid despatches, a copy of this
despatch is  herewith  submitted.    The  despatch numbered 70 and dated Ootober 8th,
1892 above referred to, is still withheld  for
the reason that  such a course  still appears
to be justifiable and proper."
The correspondence is as follows:
No. 3,    Mr.   Willis   to Secretary   Gresham.    Legation of the United States,   Honolulu, Nov. 26th, 1893.    Sir���In   the   forenoon of Monday, the  13th   inst.,   by   pre-
arrangeinent, the  yueen,   accompanied   by
the   Royal   Chamberlain,   Mr.   Robertson,
called al the Legation.    No one waa preseut
at the half-hour   interview which  followed,
her Chamberlain having been taken   to   another room, and Consul I leneial  Mills,   who
had invited hec to come,   remaining in the
front of the house to   prevent  interruption.
After a formal greeting, the  Qneeu   wis informed that the    I'resident   of   the   United
Statea had   important   communications   to
make to her, and  she   was   asked   whether
she   was   willing   to   receive   them    alone
aud in  confidence  assuring   her   that   this
was for  her  own   iutorest   and   safety.    I
then made known  to   her   the   President's
sincere regret  that   through   the   unauthorized intervention of   the   United   Statea
she   had   been   obliged   to   Burrender   her
aovereinuty, und hia hope that with her consent and cooperation the wrong doue to her
and her people might be redressed.    To this
she bowed  her acknowledgments.    I then
aaid to her:  "The president expects and believes that when  reinstated you  will ahow
forgiveness aud magnanimity, that you will
wiah to be the queen uf all the people, both
native and foreign  horn, and   that you will
I'ttS'i n to secure their love ami  loyalty and
to   establish   peace,   friendship   aud   good
government,"    To this she  made  no reply.
After waiting a moment I continued:   "The
president uot only tendeis you  his sympathy, but wishes to help you.    Before fully
making known to you his purposes, I desire
*o know whether you are willing to answer
certain  questions   which  it  ia  my duly to
ask."   She  answered,   "I  am   willing."    I
then asked  her, "should  you   be   restored
to   the   throne,    would    you   grant     full
amnesty, aB   to   life and   property,  to all
those persona   who   have   beeu or who are
now iu the provisional  government, or who
have been instrumental in the  overthrow of
your government?" She hesitated a moment
and then slowly  and  calmly aaid:    "There
word which I have said to you, aud of every
word which you have  said   to me, and if so
do you slill have   the  same opinion?"    Her
ans-'erwas   "1 have  understood and m��itn
atl 1 . uvc tu.d, 1.U-1 nit^Iit   Idave   tiie decision of   this     o   my   ministers"    To thi*I
replied;    ' Snp**n-.i      i        wai      Ucuti..<tl*y
lo    make     a     decision    belore    you   appointed any ministers, and that you were to
be asked to   iaaue   a   royal proclamation of
general amnesty,    would   you   do il?"    She
answered: "I nave no legal right to do that,
and I would not do it."    Pausing a moment,
she   continued:    "These   people   weie   the
cause of the revolution  and   constitution of
1887.    There never will be any peace   while
they are here.     They must  be   sent   out of
the o uniry, or punished and their property
c >nfiscated."    1 then aaid;  "1 h ve no   further communication   to   make   to you now,
aod w 11 have none   until   I   hear   from my
government, which   will   probably be three
or f*iur weeks." Nothing waa aaid fur several
minutes, when I asked her whether she  wus
willing to give me the names of   four of her
most 'rusted friends, as   1   might, within u
d y  'i- two, consider It   my   duty to hold a
louaullaliuu   with    them   iu   her presence.
She assented and gave   these   names: .1.  O
Carter, John   Ktcnardson,   Joseph   Nawahi
anil E. C. MacFarlane.

President Dole's Reply.
Mr. Willis transmits Mr. Dole's reply and
at the same   time   announces   that lie   will
take no further steps.    Mr. Dole iu  his  reply says:    "While it is   with   deep   disappointment that we learn that the important
proposition which we have submitted to the
Government of the Uuited States aud which
was at fiist favorably received  by it, has at
length b-eu rejected, we have experienced a
sense of relief that we are now favored with
the first official information upon the subject
that has been received   through a period  of
over ume mouths.     While   we   accept   the
decision   ol   the   president of   the   Uuited
St'-te^ d- clining tn fur*her  consider the ao-
uexa'iju proposition, aa the final conclusion
of the present   administration,   we  do  not
feel inclined to regard it as the last word of
the American  Governmeut  upon  this  aubject,    for   the    history   of     the     mutual
relations       of       the       two      countries,
>f     American    effort   aud     influence     in
building up the Christian civilization which
has so conspicuously aided   in   giving   this
country an honorable place among independ
out nations,   the geographical   position   of
these islands and their   linportauee to both
countries profitable  reciprocal   commercial
interests, whioh have long existed,  together
will our weakness as a sovereign nation, all
point   with  convincing   force   to   political
union between   the   twu   countries   aa   the
uece-sary logioal  result  from   the   circumstances mentioned.    This conviction   is emphasised by  the  formidable   expression   of
American statesmen over   a long period   in
favor   of   annexation,   conspicuous   among
whom   are   the   names   of Messrs.    \X.   L.
Marey, William H. Seward,  Hamilton Fish
and James G. Blaine, all  former aecretaries
of State, and especially   so   by   the   notion
of    your    last    administration    in   negotiating a  treaty   of   annexation   with   this
Government aud   sending   it.   to   the   Senate   with    a    view   to     its     ratification.
We shall, therefore,   continue   the   project,
of political union with the United   States as
a conspicuous feature of our  foreign policy,
confidently hoping  that, soeuer ur later, it
will be crowned with success, to the lasting
benefit of  both countries,    Die additional
portion of your communication  referring to
our  domestic affairs, with a view of interfering   therein, ia a new   departure iu  the
relations of   the  two   governments.    Your
information that the President of t he Uuited
States expects this government lo promptly
relinquish   to her  (meaning   the  ex-queen)
her constitutional  authority with the question, 'Are you  williug  to abide  by the decision of the president?' might   be dismissed
in a aingle word, but  for  the circumstances
that   your   communication   contains,   as it
appears to me, misstatements and erroneous
conclusions based thereon that, are so prejudicial to this government that I cannot permit them to pass unchallenged;   moreover,
the importance and  menacing character of
this proposition make  it appropriate for me
to  discUsa   somewhat fully   the questions
raised by it.
We do not recognize the right of the president of the United "U .tes to interfere in our
domestic uffairs.    Sm li a right could be conferred upon him b^   uu   act   of this government, and by that alio.e, or it  could   be acquired by conquest.    This I   understood  to
be the American doctrine   announced   from
time to time by the authorities of your government,    We have doue your   government
uo wrong: no charge of discourtesy is or can
be brougnt against ns; our  ouly   issue wiih
your     people     has     beeu     that     because
we     revered     i's     institutions     of   civil
liberty,   we   have   desired   to   have   them
extended   to   our   distracted   country, and
because we honor its llag, and deeming that
ita   beneficent   and   authoritative  presence
wouid bo for lhe bast   interests uf all ot our t
people; we have stood   ready  to add to our
country a new star to ita glory, and  to consummate a  union which we  believed would
be aa much for the  benefit of your country
as ours.  If this is an olleuoe we plead guilty j
to it.    I am instructed to  lufnrm  you, M
Minister, that the provisional government
of the Hawaiian   Isiands   respectfully   and
unhesitatingly   declines   to   entertain    the
proposition of the  President of the   Unite!
Statea, that we should surrender its authority to the ex queen,"
President Cleveland's Last Instructions.
Washington,Jan. 13 ���Final instructions
were aent by Secretary Gresham to Minister
Willis by the Mariposa. After referring to
the action of Lilioukalani, in refusing to
grant a general amnesty in the event of her
restoration, Srcretary (.resham siys: "Your
reportB show that on further reflection the
Queen gave her unqualified assent in
writing, to the conditions suggested, but
that the Provisional Government refuses
to acquiesce iu the President's decision. The matter now being in the
hands of Congress, the president will keep
that body fully advised of the situation and
will lay before it from time to time the re-
Fjlital   Arrangements   lor    the   Opening
Exhibition Making Good Progress.
S.v. FbANOISCO, Jan.   14.���It   has   been
j arranged that   on   the   opening day of the
fair Mayoi  Kllert   will   speak for the oity
I and   M.  H. de Young   for the fair.    General Barnes will   deliver   the   oration   and
Mrs. de Young   will   press   the button to
start the machinery.    During  lhe  opening
exercises, while   the   combined   bands  are
plaving "America," an accompaniment  will
be liie.l i,**. artillery.    In the procession will
be included tlie national Internal societies,
und many  organizations  of   various   sorts,
making up probably th*.* largest  demonstration yet seen in  San Francisco.    T*>e Midwinter Fair  ban I  is  rehearsing  music  for
the occasion.    The  Iowa   sta'e band is  on
the way to this city, giviug  conceits ou the
way.
Meanwhile the work of preparation in and
about ihe Exposi ion grouuds is being
rapidly rushed. The fact that a day has at
Us' heen definitely settled upon uppeurs to
have given great impetus to he exhibitors
and commissionaire. The spur tracks lead-
to the different buildings are literally lined
with cars and tne empty ones
can scarcely be gotten out of
the way fast enough for the full dies to
take their places. A number of fine arts
exhibits are among the latest arrivals.
These consist of large pieces of statuary. A
I great, many other exhibits which haxe arrived in bulk are piled up ou the floors of
the three other main exposition buddings,
but they will be in their place iu a few
daya aud will greatly add to the appearance of the interior of these structures.
VARIOUS METHODS OF THE RING.
Some Vessels Brought Loads Direct from
British Columbia.
The ring d'd not coi li te i's operatlora
to any ooe method, and the number of
vessel in the business is very large. Some
loaded Chinese aud opium in Barclay
Sound, near Victoria, and went directly
to this port. This was the same p'an as
used hy the seized schooner L >uis Olsen,
which was recently Raptured and confiscated and the principal smugglers convicted.
The other plau waa to smuggle the opium
and Chinese to some Puget sound port.
From there they were forwarded to this city
on lumber schooners. Seat.tie was the headquarters of the gang for this work. Some
of the vessels engaged in the business
came directiy from British Columbia aud
appeared t > be honest traders by transferring their cargoes of Chinese and opium to
a certain yacht well known in this buy that
would go out to meet the northern vessels.
There was a great deal of this transferring
from northern coasting vessels to smaller
boa:s \Vhieh would put out from this bay.
The kind of opium smuggled was principally the Lai Yung brand, the finest in the
market, and also the Foot Luug, almost its
equal- These brands would be either legitimately imported to Victoria or smuggled
in. In Victoria there are several opium
factories, and from these a large amount
of good second-class opium was obtained.
Then the contraband alulT would be either
sent from Baroloy Sound or to some Puget
Sound port, from whence it was sent to thia
cily by vessels as described above, or by rail
direct.���.S'. F. Chronicle.
The Late Sir Andrew Clark and Longevity.
Here is the eminent physician's prescription for attaining the scriptural span of life,
free to all: "Shall 1 tell you why Tennyson's death was so peaceful ? The secret is
this: He lived a quiet, laborious, simple
life. It is a secret which few men learn in
time to profit hy it, I was his friend before
I was his physician. Metaphysics drew us
together. Gladstone, too, is deeply interested in that subject,and we all three agreed
in our taste for a simple life, aud a life of
work.
"Half of the disease of the generation is
due to people's idleness. Idleness, the beginning of all evil. The mother of a pampered darling of a daughter sends to me.
The girl ails, uo oue knows why. I am to
come and prescribe. 1 know before 1 go
what is the matter with the girl. 'Goto
your local medical man,' I say. I ut no, it
muat be Sir Andrew, the grumpy Soot, and
Sir Andrew prescribes long walks, and less
rich fuotl, aud regular meals, and early
hours. Ami presently, when the young
lady has regained her red cheeks and high
i pplril -, they think I have performed a won-
I derfu  cure!
"Now let me tell you how 1 myself have
' managed to live at all. I am 62. Over 30
years ago when I was a young and obscure
i Scotch practitioner in London, I applied for
I a place on the medic d staff of the London
hospital, The authorities there said: 'Oh,
lei us give the poor chap a chance. He is
consumptive; he won't lust loim. Let us,
in pity, give him a post.' Well, 1 have outlived nearly every one of them. All my
life I have been delicate; I have several
times been at death's door; but by reason
of a -imple life and a life of work, 1 have
managed to get very close to three scoie
years and ten."
Demosthenes Demonstrating.
Unlike his famous nametake and predecessor M. Demosthenes, Surgeon-in Chief of
the Roumanian army, has been making experiments with the Mannlicher rifle.
He pronounced a number of corpses
aud placing them oO centimetres
apart fired ��t them ot a range of
60 metres. He found that the bullets went
through three of the bodies. Tho wounda
inflicted on the soft part of the bodies were
less aerious than thoae inflicted by the old
rifles, but, taken altogether, the injury done
waa more terrible. It is computed that the
range of the M*nnlioher rifle is J a mile.

Taking the Cue From Washington.
A few weeks ago it was almost definitely
announced that tho Federal Parliament
would meet on 25th January. Subsequently the meeting was fixed for the middle of
February. Now it looks as if it would not
assemble until some time in March. The
reason is said to be that the ministers are
afraid to take action on the tariff until they
see how the United States Congress will
deal with the Wilson bill. If the Democrats succeed in lowering materially
the American tariff there will be corresponding reductions rushed through here;
but should the Free Traders in the
StateB fail, the promised reforms in the
Canadian N. P. will be shuttled out of the
way in some way or other. If that is not
taking tho cue from Washington we do not
know what it is. Whatever way the
American dog lout s the Canadian cat j amps.
Our rulerB have no policy of their own, save
one of expediency. They in effect refme to
reform the tariff because it iB statesmanlike
and proper to do so, but .inly because Buch
a line of action is forced upon them by the
action of our neighbors. ThiB is virtually
being ruled from Washington. Why do
they not act towards England in the same
way? She gives us absolute free trade.
Why do not our government reciprocate
with her as they are anxious to do with the
United States 1

COMMUNICATIONS.
A Protest (Tom Mr. Walter Boos.
Editor Tklkuram:
Sib,���Kindly grapt me apace for as brief
a reply to the Free Press' contention of mu
nicipal control of the city schools as tbe
subject calls for. I would at the outset
draw attention to the pseudo-confession of
the Free Press that the intention is not to
take the control of tbe educational system
out of the hands of the Board of Public Instructions but simply to merge the two
Boards of Trustees and aldermen into the
Altlurmaiiic Board. I pronounce this a
pseudo-confession, and in testimony of th.it
the Free Press has something far diffi.*renf. in
its mind's eye. I would point, first, to the
sevtnth clause of the Board of Trade pn*i-
tion to the Hon. Theo. Davie, on his r<".*i*"t
visit to the city. The petition roads : " L'lmt
the Publio Schools of the cities should be
conducted by the mayor and aldermen as
municipal departments."
Here is a very  plain  reijuest  to a  public
man, that there can be  no   mistake] about.
Our schools to-day  are  state   schools, conducted as atate departments,   by   a professional   board   of   educators.    The  petition
asks tbat the city schools  be   conducted by
the mayor and aldermen  as   municipal departments.    I have read that petition many
times, but have   so   far   failed   to discover
either on the face of   it   or   by  reading between the lines, any allusion to the merging
of the trustee and aldermanic boards. 1 n ould
BUggeBt that   the   Free Press   draught an
amendment to the petition more in harmony
with recent explanations.  The second point
that I beg to submit for your  readers' consideration is   the   Free   Press' editorial  of
Jan. 12th, headed   the   "School   Trustees.
Therein   ia   the   following   senience:   The
suggestion   of   the   Free   Press "that   the
schools should be conducted as a municipal
department, only   applied to the   present
duties of the trustees, and not to auy control of   the   educational   syatem,   although
we   are   not  sure,   but   it   ivould   even  be
an advantage  to allow  each   city to  have
full   charge   of   its   educational   system."
The last half of the above quotation reveals
the real "nigger on the   fence,"   and when
you consider that tbe above  quotat ion, and
the petition to the Hon. Theo. D..vie comes
from the same source, it becomes morn than
an inference that the author is a firm believer
in looal control of the school system.   There
is nothing  particularly   disgraceful   about
auch a belief, in fact it is t he popular idea,
and our neighbors are yet, in spite of accumulation of evidence from  professional quarters, hugging it with the tenacity of a  lady
book agent.
In conclusion, I beg to enter a protest
against the Free Prew jugglery of words. I
am not aware that I have taken the stand
that aldermen should not be on the trustee
board, so long as that board remains subordinate to the counoil of public instruction,
and my published card to the electors is a
positive proof that I am opposed to the
breaking up of the present syatem. Nor
need the- fact that I received
the lowest number of votes be an
endorsement of tha Free Press position of
full Ice il control; may it not rather prove
that the "ward bealer," a very old and well-
known adjunct of Tammany and similar
machines is no longer foreign to our soil, as
evidenced by the number of "scalpers
tickets" that found their way into the
sacred precincts of the ballot box.
Thanking you for the space, I am.
Yours, etc.

THE HAWAIIAN BMBROGLIO.
The Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs,
which is inquiring into the Hawaiian business, does not seem satisfied with Blount's
report. Leading Hawaiian-**! now in the
United States have been called upon to testify. Senator Frye, of Maine, is taking nn
active part and is doing all he can to defend
Stevens and of course to condemn Blount
and his report. This will he iu effect to
censure the policy of President Cleveland
and Secretary Gresham. The polioy of the
president's opponents on the senate committee for foreign affairs is if possible to maintain the status quo in Hawaii, that is to say
to maintain the provisional government in
power. President Cleveland's policy was
no doubt right and honest, hut his method
carrying it out does not appear to have been
well chosen. Hr should hsve endeavoied to
get oongress on his side in thi first place
and (ben to have g *ne ahead. But he did
not do that, and now unless he is supported
by a majority in both houses he will be
placed in a very awkward and undignified
position. It is imp'issib'e a' present, to say
what the outoonie of il. all will be. The Republican papers are ohcuUtiug reports that
the British ..re lucnguiog to istablish a protectorate over the island, aud that the first
step in that direotion is to procure the restoration, of the queen, who, they allege,
would iuvite the British to take
possession. They therefore claim that President Cleveland, in seeking to restore the
queen, is in tact playing the British game
through sheer stupidity. We do not believe that there is the least truth in these
stories. It would he very unlike Mr. Gladstone to enoourage a policy of annexation of
Hawaii hy his Government when lie knows,
as he must know, that the annexation ot
Hawaii hy Great Britain would ho deeply
resented by the Uuited States, aud might
even lead to war between the two nations, We
may be very sure that Mr. 'jladstoue will
do nothing to incur such a risk, or in any
way to otfend his friends, the Americans, on
whose good will aud good word he has
seemed of late years to set far ton much
value,
Tlie latest news to hand is that the provisional government is seriously considering
the question of foimally organizing as a permanent government under constitutional
forms. It is further stated that the queen
has aba: d ned all hope of being restored,
and is preparing a suit for heavy damages
against the American government. This,
we suppose, means that she will claim heavy
damages from the United States, aa there is
no court where she could enter such a suit,
or which posstssns authority to render judgment upon it. Her claim for damages is to
be made upon the ground that she was deposed solely by an armed force of the United
States, acting under the advice and direction of Minister Stevens, aud that this has
bsen admitted by President Cleveland in
his messages to Congress, aud by Cominis
sioner Blount in his report; and is further
proved by the fact that the president en-i
deavorcd to induce thi provisional govern- j
inenl to surrender in her favor. It must be |
confessed that Queen Liliuokalani his a good
case in a   claim    f"r   damages   against   the'
United States in ihe event of her  not being
restored; hut the matter has not. yet   been!
passed upon hy Congress, and the above  re- j
port requires   to   be   confirmed.    The real
issue is be ween   President   Cleveland   aud
the provisional government, and that   isBue
oan only be determined by CongresB.
Salmon canning in alaska. I
The Americans claim that the waters of
Alaska, between 55 and 66 degrees of north
latitude, are the favorite habitat of the.
salmon. Salmon packing in Alaska has be-1
come one of the most important of American
industries. During the past twelve years
there have been picked in Alaska 4,156,767
eases of salmon, valued $16,627,004. There
are 34 canneries in Alaska, built at a cost of
from $25,000 to ��50,000 each. The output
of these canneries is diminishing, not increasing. Salmon are becoming scarce in
Alaskan waters, owing to the employment
by the Americans of nets, fish racks, and
other appliances, in such numbers I hat the
fish cannot gel up stream to their spawning
grounds. If. is the old story of killing the
goose thai lays the golden eggs. An effort
is being made by citizens of San Frauciseo,
who are interested in the trade, to have the
salmon industry of the Pacific cost protected by Act of Oongress, It is feared
that if something is not dons the salmon in
Alaskan waters will soon ho exterminated.
A petition lias been seut to Congress ou the
subject. This is always the way with
American fisheries. They invariably destroy I hem by their greedy and reckless
methods of fishing If they ever get possession of the Canadian fisheries they will
Berve them in just ths same fashion, They
will destroy them. The sturgeon in the
Columbia have nearly been exterminated by
American fish rmen.
INSURANCE
REAL   ESTATE
The Chinese poll tax for December, 1893,
amounted to $14!). This tax for the corresponding month of 1S!)2 amounted to ��247.
It. hence appears that Chinese immigration
to Canada is decreasing. This is doubtless
due to hard times on this continent, and
especially in the United Slates.
An Official statement re the agreement
made by Great Britain with Russia respecting a protective zone around theCommander
and Robhin Islands.it was stated last week,
would appear in the Canada Gazette of Sunday. It was also stated that the agreement in question will be operative until
further notice.
The Nihilists continue to trouble the
repose of the Czir. The P.isen Courier says
that the usual New Year's rec ption by the
Czir at the Winter P..lace vas omitted this
year, owing lo the recent discovery of a
nihilist plot to kill his majesty. The discovery was made through the arrest of cer-
tiin postoffice officials in Russian Poland,
and the seizure of their private pipers.
An instance of the severity of ihe climate
of Manitoba at this season was telegraphed
last week. A farmer named William Robinson, livit g some distance from White
River, went out. duiing lhe storm on Wednesday to do some chores, taking a little
girl of eight years with him. When reluming to tho house he got loBt in the
storm, and wandered helplessly around for
some time. When he found a house he was
six miles from home, the child being meanwhile frozen to death in his aims.

Thk British Government is airuegling
with a deficit in the revenues, and is oast- ,
ing about how best to meet it. Ninety-four
Radical members have petitioned Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Chancellor of the
Exchequer, to revise the present methods of
taxation, and to introduce a graduated scale
of death duties, exempting estates of a less
value than ��500, and increasing the rate on
larger estates. They propose that estates
of ��4,000 be taxed four per cent., and
estates of ��500,000, ten per cent. The proposal seems more reasonable and less revolutionary than most others made by the
Radicals. They also want real estate and
personal property to be subjected to the
same rate of taxation.
Hamilton wants coke and maohinery for
smelting purposes placed on the free list. It
wonld be a great boon to mining in British
Columbia if thia request were granted by
the Government, and if all other sorts of
maohinery used in mining were also made
free of duty.

" The News-Advertiser nf Vancouver says
that the B. 0. Farmers' Institute has been !
dissolved after a long and fitful struggle for
life. Its aim, the union of the agriculturists
of the Province for mutual protection and
counsel was a worthy one, but somehow or
other, the fanners of British Columbia
never seem able to aot in concert. The fact
that they are parted from each other in so
many oases by long distances, the only
means of inter-communication being difficult
nd costly, doubtless largely a* cunts for
thia want of  cohesion, another   reason for
"ii
vince that can be claimed to be recognized

in regard to the Lower Fraser district.

but for the past snveral days his actions
have been so peculiar that complaint was
made to the police and the old man was arrested. Beer isa member of theSeattle Typographical Union, No. 202, and a year ago
was connected with the Sunday Mercury,
published in this city. It is said that he
has property in New Westminster, B. C,

an Englishman and helieves that he is pursued by a ghost in the shape of a tottering
old woman, which in his boyhood haunted
an old huilding belonging to his mother.
Wm Beer also worked in Vancouver on the

limit table in use in the schools was again
the subject, for discussion. In writing the
principles aro to be taught in the primary
grades, and copybooks are not to be used
till pupils reach the sixth division. Several
teachers spoke strongly against the faulty
punctuation of the present series of readers,
and it was decided that at promotion examinations thepunctuat ion of thedicta tion should
not bo marked so closely as at former examinations. The limit for arithmetic created a lively discussion. A number of teachers argued that fractions should be taught
before reduction. It was decided by the
association to leave the limit in this respect
as it is at present and teach reduction before
fractions. The discussion of the limit table
will occupy at least one more meeting of the
association. The next meeting nf the association will be held on the second Friday
in February.

THE   NEW   COUNCIL   MEET.
Committees Formed - Committee Appointed re. City Re-Survey-Constable
Gibbs Speaks.
Yesterday evening Mr. J. V. Vlauta, J.
P Bwore in the new members of the new
council, consisting of Mayor Quennell, Al-
dermui Nightingale, flocking, T. Wilkes,
Morrison, Oraig, Churchill, Wilson, Hence
and Dobeson.
The first business transacted was the selection of committees which are as follows:
Finance���Dubeson,. Wilson aud Pleao ;
street,-Nightingale, Morrisson and Cocking; sanitary���Churchill, Dobeson aud Wilson; fire wardens���Cocking, Nightiugsle
and Craig; lighting committee���Craig,
Pleace and \\ likes.
A communication waB read from A. R.
Heyland, 0. E., requesting an extension of
two weeks time for the re survey of the city,
specifying why the extension was requireu.
On motiou the extension was granted.
Aid. Pleace said that he thought a copy
of the field notes and a map should be
furnished lo ihe City Council, drawn out
by Mr. Heyland and certified by him as
correct.
Mayor Queunel remarked that Mr. Hey-
land wished a commit ee to be appointed
to examine the maps, and.to whom he could
explaiu everything in connection with the
re-survey.
Aid Dobeson drew attention to the tact
that i be new map was a great improvement, as all the angles were in and the
monuments marked, thereby doing away
a great deal with the necessity of field
notes.'
On motion it was decided that a committee of three be appointed to examine the
maps etc. Committee appointed: Alderemn
Nightingale, Pleace and Morrison.
Aid. Nightingale moved that Dr. Praeger
be appoiuted health officer for the ensuing
year.    Carried.
On motion Constable Gibbs was allowed
to ask that some steps be taken by the
Council, as constable Brown and himself
were unable to arrest except in cases of
felony.
Aid. Wilson understood that the Council
had uo power to appoint police officers, aud
all that they were able to do was to recommend them to the Board of Police Commissioners, and if the board had the appointing
cf the officers they should also have the
responsibility.
Aid. Cocking believed that the best thing
to do v*as to leave the matter entirely in the
hands of the Police Commissioners.
Aid. Nightingale considered that the
principle was not a good one, and that as
the Council hud the paying of the police
they ought to have more power in the
matter.
Aid. Dobeson said that he had heard that
two officers were all that were required for
the city work this year, and he thought the
bebt thing the Council could do was to recommend one officer to the Board of Commissioners.
On motion. Constable Gibbs was heard,
who said that if one man was considered
enough, he hoped that they would recommend Constable Brown, as he had two children to keep, and was a good man for the
position, and that he (Gibbs) would find
work elsewhere.
Aid. Cocking moved that the matter be
laid over one week for consideration.
Aid. Pleace said that as he was considerably in the dark as lo the particulars, he
should be glad if the matter was laid over.
The motion waB carried.
The Council then adjourned till 7:30 p.m.
on Monday next.

Capt. Dempster, who drew attention to the
benefits 'derived from belonging to the association; how it supplied a "long felt want"

the principal cities. T. Keith, MP. P. .also
spoke, agreeing with Capt. Dempster, and
congratulating the association on the work
done. Mr. Dodd, in the oourae of a few
remarks, drew attention to the great assistance that, had been rendered the Y.M.C.A.
by its most efficient secretary, Mr. E.
Freure, who in reply, explained that the
committees were responsible for the good
work done.

THE LOVERS' STRATAGEM
(By Er c St. r. K. Rrss.)
CHAPTER I.
"ORBAT  EXPECTATIONS."
"YaV'said -*tr J" **i Vesey, complacently,
to his daughter Gcuigiana. "He says at
two precisely. He proceeds���" and the
baronet went od n-idiug the black-bordered
letter in his hand���
" 'Dear sir,���Aa since the death of my
sainted Maria���' Hum," he commented,
"That's hiB wife! She made him a martyr,
and now he makes her a saint."
The speaker was a tall, handsome man of
about fifty years of age, clad in the very
best-fitting clothes possible to see. He was
in morn rig dress, black coat, white waistcoat, grey trousers, hoots that drew attention to his small feet, and white gaiters.
His features were all good with perhup-
the exception of Ihe eyes, which were
rather small and foxv, but his nose wus
sufficiently Roman to justify his claim to be
a man of good family if not nf high descent.
His daughter was sufficiently like him to
proclaim the relationship anywhere. Her
chief feature, or, shall we my, attraction,
was her hair, which was dark brown, and
luxuriant, and was very gracefully disposed
upon a well poised head.
The father and daughter were standing
rather expectantly in the centre of a Bel
gravian drawing-room, which was richly, if
not very lavishly furnished. The ceiling
was beautifully painted in different tints of
pale-blue and white, and the walls were
picked out with salmou   color   panels with
fold mouldings in frames of a pale-green
ue. The apartment was very large, and
folding doors lying open added to its gran
deur, as well ub displayed on one hand a
section of the conservatory, and on the
other the entrance to a long picture gallery.
Great gasahers of finely-cut crystal were
suspended fr m the ceiling of both rooms,
and on the walls small branches to match
the centre-pieces,
On the right of the room a table was
placed, upon which newspapers and books
were lying in contused heaps; on the left
there was a sofa, writing-table, and comfortable chairs and ottomans were everywhere to be found.
"Yes, papa," resumed Georgina. "Mr.
Graves, you say, calls his wife a saint. Very
good, but now go on with his letter, please.
You came to something about 'as since her
death���.'"
Sir John proceeded reading���" 'I have
been living in chambers, where I cannot so
well invite ladies; you will allow me to
bring Mr. Sharp, the lawyer, to read the
will of the late Mr. Mordaunt, of Calcutta
(to which 1 am appointed executor), fit your
house���your daughter being the nearest
relation. I shall be with you at two precisely. ���Henry Graves.'"
"And you really think I shall be Uncle
Mordaunt's heiress?" cried Georgina; "and
do you really think the fortune he made in
India is half a million?"
"Ay, I've no doubt you will be the richest heiress in England," said Sir John.
"But ait down, Georgy.''
And the affectionate father courteously
placed chairs for himself and his beloved
ebild. Then he resumed���"Upon this most
happy���I mean, melancholy occasion, I feel
that I may I rust you with a secret. You
see this fine house-our fine servants���our
fine plate���our fine dinners; every oue
thinks Sir John Vesey a rich man."
"And are you not, papa 1" asked the
daughter.
"Not a bit of it���all humbug, child���all
humbug, upon my soul I" cried the baronet.
"There are two rules in life���First, Men are
valued not for what they are but what they
seem to be. Secondly, If you have no merit
or money of your own, you must trade on
the merits and money of other people. My
father got the title by services in the army,
and died penniless. On the strength of his
services I got a pension of ��400 a year; on
the strength of ��400 a year I took credit for
��800; on the strength of ��800 a year I
married your mother with ��10,000; on the
strength of ��10,000 I took credit for ��40,-
000, and paid Dicky Gossip three guineas a
week to go about everywhere calling me
'Stingy Jack.'"
"Ha I ha 1   A disagreeable nickname."
"But a valuable reputation," cried Sir
John. "When a man is called stingy, it is
as much as calling him rich: and when a
man's called rich, why, he's a man universally respected. On the strength of my respectability I wheedled a constituency,
changed my politics, resigned my seat to a
minister, who, tn a man of such stake in the
country, could offer nothing less in return
that a paieut office of ��2,000 a year. That's
the way to succeed in life. Humbug, my
dear !���all humhug, upon my soul!"
"I muat say that you���"
"Know the world, to be sure," resumed
the baronet. "Now, for your fortune���as I
spend more than my income, I can have
nothing to leave you; yet, even without
oounting your uncle, you have always
passed for an heiress on the credit of your
expectations from the savir.gs of 'Stingy
Jack.' Appropos of a husband; you know
we thought of Sir Frederick Blount."
"Ah, papa, he is so charming," cried  the
"He was so, my dear, hef*ire we knew
your poor uncle was dead," the father continued; "but an heiress such as you will he
should look out for a duku Where ihe
duoe is Kvelyn this morning ?" continued Sir
John as he rose aud put ins ciiau* buck.
Tlieu he neat to the writing-table, marked
the letter methodically, and put it into his
pocket-book.
"I've not seen him, pupa," returned
Georgina, rising and walking over to the
other table. "What a strange oharacter he
is���so sarcastic; and yet he can be agreeable."
"A humorist���a cynio!" exclaimed Sir
John, "one never known how to take him.
My private secretary, a poor cousin, has not
got a shilling, and yet, hang m�� if he does
not keep us all at a sort of a distance."
"But why do you take him to live with
us, papa, since there's no good to be got by
it ?" asked Georgina.
"There you are wrong," returned Sir
John;'the has a great deal of   talent;   pre-
fiares my speeches, writes my pamphlets,
ooks up my calculations Besides, he ts
our cousin���he has no salary; kindness to a
poor relation always tells well in the world;
and benevolence is a useful virtue, parictul-
arly when you can have it for nothing I
With our other cousin, Clara, it was different; her father thought fit to leave me her
.guardian though she had not a penny ���a
mere useless incumbrance; so you aee, I
got my half-sister, Lady Franklin, to take
her off my hands."
"How muoh longer is Lady Franklin's
visit to be?" inquired the girl.
"1 don't know, my dear, said the baronet; "(the longer the better���for her  bus-
band left her a good deal of  money   at her
own disposal.    An, here she comes."
The lady thus heralded wub a most remarkable peison in every sense of the word
Lady Franklin was emphatically what is
termed a "splendid woimu." She had a
noble, cou.ie lance, ��i li Toiling, frank,   ex-
John, I'm  iu   the   way, I see; for   I know
your benevolence   is   so   delicate   that you
never allow anyone to  detect it."    And she '
left the roorr,
"I could never   do   your commission to- ���
day; I have been to visit a poor w men who
was my nurse a *d my mother's las' fiien**,"
prestive eyes; s.jgrande dame whose  dignity j Evelyn explained.    "She is v.ry poor, very

Her hair was light   hrown,   her compU-xion

were   not   too   large   hut    perfectly    pro-   tention,"   and   he   added, looking   at   his
sick���dying���and  she   owes   six month's
ren'."
"You know I should be mn*-t happy to do |
any hint! for y* u*self," snd Si I John loftily.
"But the nurse   (some   |*e**p e'��  nurses  are
portionate, while and well formed, and she
was attired in. some rich silk material
which did not rustle disagreeably as she
moved.
Until her companion, Clara Douglas,
appeared, Georgina Vesey would be called
not only beautiful, but distinguished looking. Although modest, unussumifg, aud
meek-looking, Clara bore the stamp of high
bread loveliness. Warm chestnut hair
gracefully dressed was brushed away from
her face, and arranged in such a manner as
to remind one of a Greek goddess. Tall and
slender, she was perfectly graceful in every
movement, and a glance from her eyes
when she raised her long dark lashes like
veils, was a distinct pleasure in itself. Altogether, Clara Douglas, the poor companion of Lady Franklin, despite her unassuming manners, was just the woman
who could command the fullest attention
io almost any assembly of ladies and gentlemen.
"My dear Bister," cried Sir John, "we
were just loud in your praises, But how's
this? not in mourning?"
"Why should I go into mourning for
a man I never saw?" asked   Lady   Franklin.
"Still there may be a lagecy," remarked
the brother.
"Then there'll be leas cause for affliction!"
returned the lady.
"Ha! ha! my dear Sir John, I'm one of
those who think feelings a kind of property,
and never take credit for them upon false
pretences," cried Lady Franklin, seating
herself by the table.
"Very silly woman," Sir John murmured
to himself. Then he proceeded aloud to his
sister's companion. "But, Clara, I see you
are more attentive to the proper decorum;
yet you are very, very distantly connected with the decesed���a third cousin, I
think."
"Mr. Mordaunt once assisted my father,"
returned Clara; "and these poor robes are
all the gratitude I can show him." And she
too took her plaoe by the table.
"Gratitude," murmured Sir John.
"Humph 1 I am afraid the minx has got
expectations."
"So, Mr. Graves is the exeoutor," proceeded Lady Franklin. "The will is ad
dressed to him? The same Mr. Graves who
is always in black���always lamenting his ill
fortune and hia sainted Maria, who led him
the life of a dog."
"The very same," cried the baronet. "His
liveries are black; his carriage ia black; he
always rides a black galloway; and, faith, if
he ever marry again, I think he will show
his respect to the sainted Maria by marrying a black woman."
"Ha! ha! we shall see," exclaimed Lady
Franklin. "Poor Graves, I always liked
him; he made an excellent husband."
At this juncture a most important person
entered the room unobserved. This was
tbe other poor relation Evelyn. Attired in
a sombre frock-coat of no very glossy mate
rial, he still looked "every inoh a gentle'
man." Large dark eyes seemed to look into
the inner Uvea of the people to whom he
apoke. Hia hair was dark, his features regular, his noae clear out, and indicative of
pronounced power, if noses mean anything
at all. A silky moustache shaded hia mouth,
but oould not altogether conceal a peculiar
curl of the lip which, too frequently, people
said, accentuated his utterances, no matter
to whom they were addressed. Seated
gracefully at the table he took up apparently the first book that came to hand. If he
was listening he showed no sign of it; he
simply sat quietly���reading, to all appearance.
"What a crowd of relations this will
brings to light," proceeded Sir John. "Mr.
Stout, the political economist���Lord Gloas-
more���"
"Whose grandfather kept a pawnbroker's
shop, and who, accordingly, entertains the
profoundest contempt for anything popular,
parvenu, and plebeian," said Lady Franklin.
"Sir Frederick Blount," the baronet went
on.
"Sir Fwdedewick Blount, who objects to
the letter r aa being too wough, and therefore droops ita acquaintance," laughed the
lady.
"He never does anythiug that is silly, or
says anything that ia wise. I beg your pardon, my dear; I believe Sir Frederick is an
admirer of yours, provided, on reflection, he
does not see "what harm it could do him"
to fall in love with your beauty and expectations."
Here Clara touched Lady Franklin's arm
and pointed to Evelyn.
"There, too, uroceeded the lady, "our
poor cousin, the scholar. Oh! Mr. Evelyn
���there you are," ahe added archly, turning
and looking at him. All the others immediately followed her example.
"Kvelyn!" ciiud Sir John, "the very person I wanted; where have you been all nay?
Have you seen to those papers?���have you
written my epitaph on poor Mordaunt?���
Latin, you know? Have you reported my
speech at Exeter Hall?���have you looked
out lhe debates ou U.u Customs?���and, oh,
have you mended up all the old pens in t he
study?"
"And have you brought me the black
floss silk?" asked Georgina. "Have you
been to Storr's for my ring'.'���uud, as we
cannot go out on this melancholy occasion,
did you call at Hook ham's for the laat H.B.
and the Comic Annuals?
"And did you see what waa really the
matter with my bay horse';" asked Lady
Franklin approaching him. "Did you get
me the opera box?���did you buy little Charley his peg top?"
"Certainly, Paley is right upon that
point," said Evelyn ina low voice, "for,
put the syllogism thus." Then looking up,
he continued���" Ma'am���Sir���Miss���Vesey
���you want something of me? Paley observes that to assist even the undeserving
tends to the better regulation of our charitable feelings���no apologies���I am quite at
your service." And he shut his book and
rose.
"Now he's in one of his humours!" said
S r John.
"You allow him strange liberties, Sir
John," cried Lady Franklin.
"You will be tbe leas surprised at that,
madam," remarked Evelyn, "when I inform you that Sir John allows me nothing
else. I am now about to draw on his benev-
olenoe."
"I beg your pardon, air, and like your
spirit,"  exolaimed   Lady   Franklin.      "Sir
watch.    "Bless me, so late.    I've  letters to
write and none of the pins are mended!"
And he hurried away in a peevish mood
As he departed Georgina drew her purse
out of her embroidered chaieluine, murmuring���"I think I will give i' io him. And
yet if I don't get tl*e fm une afier all," sue
proceeded, with that admirahle fore hought.
inherited from her esiiin ble faih* r. "Papa
allows me so Utile," sho went on, as if to
convince herself tliut her own affairs were
most imp *ttanl after ull.
"And then," she added, "I must have
those earrings." The earrings s-emed to
settle Ihe mutter, for she pu her tiuy purse
away, and yet���and yet, still clinging to
the subject, she said, ri-lug from the table
and turning to the poor relation���"Mr.
Kvelyn, what, is the address of your nurse?"
He wrote the addressout as hemurmured,
"She has a good heart with ull her foibles,"
he handed it to her. Then he added aloud���
"Ah! Miss Vesi y, if that poor woman had
not closed the eyes nf my lost mother, Alfred Evelyn would not have been a beggar
to your father."
Georgina stood heside the table looking
at the slip of paper he hud given her. Then
she read aloud���"Mrs. -tan'on, 14 Amos
Street, Pentonville. I will certainly attend
to it," she said, hut sne a (led the mental
reservation���"if I get the fortune."
She did not observe that Clara Douglas
wrote the address down ub she read it; nor
if the truth be told, did she care in the
least, one way or the other.

.*.   It is hard to see goods go at ^uch prices and expected profits cut down bel w zero.   The peculiarities of the season are not pleasant doses to take, but take them we must- so the knife is used, and prices are cut down fine.
/.   " Money talks," but it is reticent a good deal ot the time just now.    Still, if you deal with us the bargains talk and
keep money along in the general conversation
,\ We wish every lady in the district to V: now about our Barya n Counter. It's a dandy. Why, madame, there's
goods on these same counters, that come in for every day u-e, at pi ice.- which we Cdnnot again duplicate���goods that we
feel it a "crying shame" to sacrifice    Still we have to do it, and our customers are the gainers.
.-.   We have just sorted up in D. & \. Corsets   all sizes now in stock.

expedition on Sunday were Messrs. Sloan,
Simpson, Waterhouse, Fauquier, liable and
K. Vanhou>en. They had fair luck, bagging
between .'10and -10 I'irds, though owing to a
considerable portion of the game being tialiy
they were not brought home.
The ladies in Nanaimo are arming themselves, an instance of which was given the
other night, when a lady, believing from
noises which she heard that burglars were
attempting to effect an entry to her house,
discharged her pistol twice, exciting a certain amount of interest among the residents
in the neighborhood, who wondered what
was the matter. Fortunately it was a false
alarm, but it is considered that the lady had
considerable grit, as she was in the house
alone.
