Premier Davie arrived in Wellington yesterday oo the afternoon train, aud was the
recipient of a great reception. The afternoon was spent in going about the town
with the committee of citizens who took the
Premier in charge immediately upon his
arrival. In the evening a banquet was
given Mr. Davie in tbe Wellington Hotel,
which, considering the short notice given,
was one of the best ever put up in the town.
The streets were gaily decorated with flags,
etc., and the town generally presented a
lively appearance. About six o'clock the
band turned out aud enlivened the proceedings by some very fine selections, Mr. Geo.
Kennedy had a line of flags strung from the
hotel to the opposite side of the street.
Shortly before the time fixed for the
meeting, a procession was formed opposite
the Wellington Hotel, headed by the band,
headed by the band, and marched down to
the hall. Before the procession reached the
hall, every available seat was taken. Thei
was not standing room even for many uf
those who had waited for the formation of
the procession.
When Mr. Davie entered the hall he was
received with cheers, in fact on every occasion he spoke the audience lost no opportunity to evince its approval of his policy as
set out by the Premier, and his refutations
of the various slanders and insinuations of
corruption spread abroad by the members of
the Opposition.
Mr. A. Sharpe was appointed ohairman,
and after a few remarks, introduced the
Premier.
Premier Davie's Speech.
Mr. Davie, upou coming forward, said he
was much pleased with the reception ex.
tended to him, following so closely upon the
heels of bis opponents, he b��*��� ved then:*
would be a number of things that might
have seemed wrong and which would require some explanation. He was pleased
that the committee had extended an invitation to his opponents to be present, and
invited any of the members of the Opposition present to take seats on the platform.
At this moment Messrs, T. R. E. Mclnnes,
C. D. McKenzie, Ralph Smith and others
put in an appearance. They at once took
a place on the pl��tform, and Mr. Davie then
took up the living issues of the day, which
are now agitating the minds of the electors.
He said that the opponents of the Government had said, uotiulhfully, that the Government punished those districts not returning supporters of the administration. He
denied this, aud cited the case of New
Westminster city and district in proof of
the contention. He denied the statement
that this district had been neglected; the
Government had done justice in Nauaimo
district. It is true that aireets in Wel
lington had not been laid out and paved,
etc., on the townsite, but it was not tlie
busiuess of the Government to build streets,
sewers and townsites. There is a municipal
act in force in this Province, and the cities
have taken advantage of it. It had been
represented to him since his arrival in the
town, that the residents of the town-
site had applied for incorporation,
but through legal technicalities they were
unable to do so. It was the duty* of the
local representatives to look after such
matters, and when suoh disabilities arose, to
appeal to the Legislature for remedy. The
representatives of Nanaimo district had not
done this, and so far as he was aware, no
reference was ever made iu the House by
these gentlemen as to the requirements of
the town or district of Wellington, The
members had entirely lost sight of the real
wants of their constituents, and devoted
their entire alien.ion lo those larger issues
whioh were intended to overthrow the Government. Mr, McKenzie, he understood,
had claimed, at, the rcceut Opposition meeting, credit for having secured the new
school house although, if his memory served
him, it was built iu Mr. Huslum's term as
member for the district. However, granting that Mr. McKenzie was right, it was
evident that the Government was not disposed to ignore the district because it returned Opposition members to the Legislature.
The Premier then took up the various
scandal and other issues, which had arisen
during, and since, the past session of the
Legislature. First, the Baker scandal; the
Pooley scandal, aud what might be termed
the Davie scandal. The latter consisted in
what wts called the travelling expenses of
the Attorney-General and referred to articles
published by the Opposition newspapers.
At the time it was first brought up in the
House, he showed to the satisfaction of
everyone that for every dollar expended
the Province got full value in return. He
theu referred to the many important criminal cases, and so on, which he had personally taken charge of, aud pointed out that
had the oases been given by the Department
to a reputable lawyer, they would have cost
the couutry a muoh larger sum than the
amount paid him, uot to speak of the trustee
on   Government   business.   The   last   and
land.

8-U Sm
greatest scandal was that of the Nakusp and
Slocan Railway. He referred to the base
insinuations thrown out by the Opposition,
and the pressing invitation on the part of
the Government for a public inquiry at the
time. This tbe Opposition refused to accept;
they preferred to have the insinuation go
abroad that the Government was guilty of i Telegram.
of corruption. However, in this the opponents of the Government had mistaken
the spirit of the Government. When the
latter question was up in the House, Mr.
Beaven claimed that such a condition <*f
enquiry as that asked for liy the Government would be a mere whitewashing
machine, aud it, was contended that the
...cope of the propose.1 enquiry was not large
enough. However, in spite of the Opposition, the Government did not propose to
allow these stories of corruption to go unchallenged. A Royal Commission was appointed which would sit shortly andinvesii-
gate the whole matter of the charges laid
against the ministers in regnrd to the
Nakusp and Slocan Railway. The gentlemen forming the Commission were Sir
Matthew Begbie, Chief Justice of the Province, and the Hon. George Burbage, Judge
of the Court of Exchequer of Canada. These
gentlemen would certainly not be accused of
other than honest motives. By their report
he would be prepared to stand or fall. He
believed that when the report of the Com
missioners was issued, it will also decide the
votes of a large majority of the electors in
next contest.
The Bpeaker then referred to the system
of aiding railway construction in the Province, and showed that in every case the
Government had made the best possible arrangement in the interest of the country.
He said that some mistakes had been made
in the railway property, in the years gone
by, but until the end of an election the opposition had found no fault. The Governmeut differed from the Opposition !.i th.s
respect, in as much as the members of the
Government was willing to admit their mistakes. Tho whole legislature had fallen
into un error in regard to the matter of railroad building. The Government had in
every way made a much better bargain for
the pe*.pie than the acts of the legislature
stipulated for. Mr. Davie then said the
N. k 8. railway was the cheapest built line
in the Province, and he proved this conclusively by comparison of the prioes this road
cost with that of the other roads in the
Province. This too, has beeu p*oved by the
sworn statement of those expert in railroad
building. Besides, before the company
could get the Dominion Government's subsidy, it would have to come up to the
standard of excellence demanded by the
Dominion Government in the caso of every
road receiving the Dominion subsidy
Moreover the C. P. R. has leased the rnarl
and would not have done so if tbey believed
the road was poorly constructed,as it would
cost too much for repairs and running expenses.
The Premier then said he would give an
opportunity to any opponent of the Government to spetrk, resertiug Che right to reply
later on, when he would refer to some other
matters of public interest at this time.
MoKenzie Speaks.
Mr. C. C. McKenzie, ex-member for the
district, theu came forward and made a
halting, fault-finding reply to Mr. Davie.
In an effort to show that Mr. Davie ignored
the representations of lhe members of the
district, he said that he himself had made a
request for the appointment of two justices
of the. peace for the district which was entirely ignored, Mr. McKenzie maintained
his former contention that he had obtained
the grant for the school. He admitted,
however, that the grant had been voted
before his time, but had run out and was re-
voted lifter his election, therefore he was
eulitled to cieriil for it. He tried to prejudice Mr. Davie and the other ministers by
insinuating thai they were now going aboii;
the couutry electioneering at the expense of
the country. The old stock-in-trade arguments of Brown, Kitohen & Co, were re-
hushed by .Mr. MeKenzie as far as his
memory w uld permit, in reference to the
various issues raised by the Opposition.
Mr. McKenzie, during his remaiks, sprung
what he termed a new scandal which he
called the printing scandal. This latter Mr.
McKenzie did not seem to understand very
well aud then dropped it. He also complained of the $200 deposit which, he said,
was maintained by Mr. Davie's Government
to keep workingmen out of the field. About
the only argument he put forward against
the Government was, that it was starving
the Opposition out. The Government, he
said, had been drawing public monies long
enough and should give the Opposition a
chance.
Tho Premier's Reply.
Mr, Davie, in following Mr. McKenzie,
took up some of the tilings touched upou by
the latter, iu passing and then, dealt with
the pruning contract or rather, binding
contract. He said tho whole matter had
but recently arisen, and wus simply the outcome of a disappointment man,who had had
the contract some years ago at about two
thirds moro lhan is now paid, The present
contraot was awarded tor four years and
had not yet expired. If there had been
anything wrong ubnut the binding contract,
the matter would have been brought up in
the House during the session. Mr. Davie
contradicted the insinuation that he was
charging up electioneering expenses to the
couutry, aud said Mr. McKenzie knew that
such was not the case when he made the
statement. Regarding the school grant,
Mr. Davie pointed out, by reference to the
public accouuls, that the school house was
built, and paid for, before Mr. McKenzie
ever went near the house.
Mr. John Thompson stood up in the audience and verified Mr. Davie's statement by
saying that he (Mr. Thompson) had the
contract for the construction of the Fchool
und that it had been built and paid for before Mr. McMcKenzie's eleotion.
Mr. Davie then urged the meetiug lo elect
a fair minded man.
The Doctor Orates.
Ralph Repeats Himself.
Mr. Ralph Smith then followed Dr.
Walkem, and dealt chiefly with the labor
question. His remarks were almost an
exact repetition of the speech delivered at
the Opposition meeting at Wellington a
short time ago, and which appeared in Th��
After speaking a short time,
Bomeone in the audience asked: "Who is
your candidate?"
Mr. Thomas R. Edward Mclnnes shouted
from his place on the platform: "There he
is before you, gentlemen."
Mr. Smith said he did not know what he
might be, but at present he was not in the
field.
The Premier Again Speaks.
Mr. Davie, in reply to Mr. Smith, paid
him a high compliment, spying hiB speech
was one of the most polished and luoid
addresses he had yet h*urd from a gentleman on his side of politics. Continuing,
Mr. Davie said tho object of himself and
his Government was, to see work for everyone willing to work. Unfortunately there
were only too many men out of work iu the
Province just now, but this could not be
overcome by the Government. It could only
be remedied by the further development of
the country. Referring to the labor bills
brought in by the Government, Mr. Davie
said they were the result of the most careful consideration. He referred to the effort
of the Government to get assistance from
the workingmen to enable them to bring in
a satisfactory labor bill, but were met by
the very men who should have assisted them
in a spirit of distrust; with the sole object
from the beginning, of defeating the Government. He then referred to the famous
conference between the labor representatives
and the Government, and said that in that
case some of the delegates were seeking
Government appointments and otherB were
actuated by a desire to do everything in
their power to defeat the Government. The
Governmeut had not shirked the labor
questions. On the contrary they were aot-
ing the true friends of tho workingmen.
They were not persuaded to drop labor
legislation by the employers of labor. In
the first place the Government desired to
get the result of the labors of the
labor commission then sitting in England. It was also urged that the
circumstances in Briiish Columbia were perhaps different to those prevailing in Eng'
To meet this difficulty, the Govern-
Dr. Walkem was the next speaker and
made a good defense for the Government.
He showed that the $200 forfeit was a wise
provision; that it prevented combinations
from running men who had no other interest
to serve except to defeat the will of the
people by splitting the vote of the candidates legitimately nominated and plaoed
in the field. The polioy of the Government,
he said, should merit the support of the
people throughout the country.
ment set aside $4,000 al the last session to
cover the expenses of a Royal Commission
to enquire into the needs of workingmen in
British Columbia. The commissioners will
begin their labors in a short time, so that
by the next session of the Legislature, what
ever Government may be returned, ample
information will be at hand upon which a
satisfactory labor bill can be based. He
agreed with Dr. Walkem in reference to his
remarks on the $200 deposit. Its abolition
would certainly militate against the wishes
of the majority in many cases. He believed
that any candidate who wanted to run
would have no trouble in putting up the
deposit.
Mr. Bryden Speaks.
The chairman then asked Mr. Bryden to
address the meeting. Upou coining forward
Mr. Bryden was received with prolonged
applause. He said as yet he had only consented to run in the event of no one else
deciding to accept the nomination. However, he had always endorsed the general
policy of the Government but since bearing
Mr. Davie's remaiks, he was more favorably
disposed towards the Government. The
neglect of the late members he said was perhaps partly due to the indifference
of the electois. The people should make
every effort to find out tho needs of the district and represent them to the members.
He could assure them that he was gratified
at having reoeived the nomination, but if
the people could rind a bellir man to take
tho position, he would give him his hearty
support.
Mr. Smith Puts a Question.
Mr. Ralph Smith theu asked if the $200
forfeit object could not be accomplished by
imposing it on the third man brought out.
In his opinion some scheme of this sort
could be brought about and thereby overcome the difficulty.
The Premier Thinks Not.
Mr. Davie iu reply said that no lawyer
could draft a bill, hedged in such a way,
and be a success.
Mr. Bryden here asked how the third
man could be determined!
Mr. Davie, continuing, said that that is
just where the trouble would arise. Besides,
in many cases the majority of the people of
a district desired to elect a candidate by
acclamation. The abolition of the S200 forfeit would hive the opposite remit in such
cases to that desired by the majority.
Mr. R'ioney occupied the platform for a
few minutes, and endorted   the candidature
of Mr. Bryden,
Horrobin ou Labor.
Mr. John Horrobin said in regard to Mr.
Davie's remarks in reference to the meeting
of the labor representatives and the Government, he desired to deny some remarks
made by Mr. Davie on what transpired at
the conference. He said the labor representatives were not after positions, and were
not instrumental in breaking up the meeting.
He said the trouble arose through the Government refusing to admit reporters. Mr.
Davie had refused this. He then wandered
to some side issues, about which he apparently knew nothing.
Mr. Davie Answers Horrobin.
Mr. Davie replied that, as the meeting
could see, Mr. Horrobin and other members
of the commission entered into the convention with distrust. He said the Government
consented to the reporters, but it
was found that only one paper
representative could be found, and as the
other paper was not represented it was
decided to keep the reporters out. Mr.
Davie did not say Mr. Horribin wanted office, but thut gentleman, by his own statement, had shown that it was a question of
getting men into positions. The Government waB forced to tell the delegation when
it had reoeived their absurd resolutions, that
they could not treat with them on
such terms. The desire of the delegates
was to turn the convention into a political
meeting to be used to the disadvantage of
the Government.

A PAOIFIC COAST STATESMAN'S LECTURE ON THIS THEM*.
The Electric Light System ot Hew Westminster, British Columbia, ts Owned by
the Miinli'lpatitj���������- Figures Showing This
Plan in Comparison With Private Planta.
At a recent meeting in Victoria, B.C.,
J. *.'. Brown, M.P.P.. said he wonld not
ili- u-h th.- electric light system of Victoria,
but merely tell them of the system of West'
inins.er. He would deal with the matter
ii*. in an abstraet proposition. A tramp
h il a placard on his buck and was sitting
... i ,e wayside.. The placard read: "Pity
tin blind!" A fellow tramp licensed him
of oein^ a fraud. Tbe placarded tramp denied playing fake. He simply BUggest-
>d an abstract idea, t*> have pity on the
blind. Services operated by the coiuiiiuni-
ty slumld be owned by the community.
Every man was entitled to a vote iu civic
management whether or not lie owned
property. The man with property was
ut tne mercv of his fellow citizens. If
the people in Victoria decided to leave
the city bow much would corner hits be
vorthf Land was worth what value the
e niinuiiity gave it. Was it right for the
ei'ininnnitv to do public work, and did it
pay? Whnt was right for the individual
wns right for a number of individuals���a
community. The legislature was recognizing this principle imd gave additional
powers to municipalities. These public
services ooutrolled by private companies
were in the nature of monopolies, and to
rrntHet the community they should be un
***���: pulilic control. Mutters of health and
flie welfare of the community must not be
narrowed down top much to a paying basis.
i'id the postal service pay? No; and yet
Dime thought of giving it over to a private
(!* mpiiiiy. Westminster had n fine water
sir vice at a cost of ��400,000. It was not paying now but it would do so in the long run.
The speuker knew that the citizens of
that town would not sell the water
works. The electric lighting of Westminster was done by tbe city. The city
did the street lighting and the private
iud business lighting. Everything in
eonneetion with the electric lighting system is owned by the city, nnd tlie citi
zens w*re not ashamed to acknowledge
it. It hud cost $110,000, and the system
could be Bold eusily for a qnaner of a
million dollars. It was in January,
1891, that t " street lighting Bystein was
in uu.; united, uut it wus not until August
of the same year that the revenue producing portion of tiie system was inaugurated. The city lm.I.tings were lighted
by 'ho city's own plum. The revenue
producing part of tne system had been
kept back a little by the depression thut
prevailed, The electric light committee
received, from the council 25 cents a light
fl night, which totals ;.iS.()00. 'The net cost
for eueh lamp wns SO cents a light a nigh'.
In Nanaiino it cosl 'S~i cents, Vancouver *! .
cents and ill Victoria between 32 nnd Hi
ceii's. Nanuimo mid Vancouver were light
e,i by priv I- companies, Victoria owued
only its street lights, while Westminster
owned its street nnd revenue producing
lights. So it wus seen that it paid for a
oily to own its own light. When the
hi -stein was in full running order the
<��� ty would have its own light and
the system would put $2,000 a year
in the treasury if present rates were
���charged. Iu the dwelling houses there
were 1,400 lights, and those using
them say they are oheaper and better than coal oil. It cost him in bis house
Su. 50 a month ull the year round. There
w*-re no coal oil lamps to knock over ami
no foul nir from the light. Although
Westminster had only half the population
of Victoria (8,0011) it hud as much candle
power in iis streets, and. in fact, it was
tin* best lighted city in the province and
one of the best lighted cities on the coast.
Lamps were placed wherever they were
needed. Being a public service, it wis
freely criticized. The e.y i-ience of Victoria and We*-, minster sho .-d that a city
eon d he lighted le tier and more cheaply
when thesyst- mi.s owned by the city There
are many other advantages obtained by
civic ownership of the electric light system.
In public ownership the comfort and convenience of ttie public are considered,
while in private ownership the chief consideration is for tiie dividends of the company, In pulilic ownership the rates were
made to suit all. He did not believe the
contention that good management could
not be secured by the cities. Good management could easily be obtained. The
electric light Bystein of Victoria, considering the plant, bad been well managed,
i 'oininnnities hud rights as well as individuals, and tho lights of communities had to
be recognized, Railway companies obtained rights ou the ground that they were
going to be the servants of the publio, but
in these days they generally became the
masters.
DLrwieikrdliiif Fashion.
Those who are beginning to distress
themselves over the rumors of the near od-
veitt of ringlets must bear in mind that
women of to-day are more independent
about listening to the voice of vogue than
their mothers were. Ten years ago a decree like tlie late crinoline mandate would
hardly have been disobeyed us that has
been. But modern femininity has no intention of making itself ridiculous. The
in tistic spirit that * nine in on the return
wave u'ter tcsthrticism receded Beems to be
responsible for the change. Novva i. ys
every woman has a picturesque ideal that
She doesn't propose to mar. She will still
suffer in fashion's cause���notice her clad in
w .alebone armor hobbling about on French
heels���but she will no longer assume a gurb
she considers distinctly ugly. Therefore
we may be sure that the threatened curls
will materialize into some captivating fluffy
creation as unlike ae possible to the lackadaisical Bhoestring ringlets of Mrs. Browning's day.���New York Herald.

A NEW ATLANTIC CABLE.
The cable steamer Faraday is engaged in
laying down a new oable across the Atlantic,
to lie called the Commercial Company's
cable, from the west coast of Ireland to
Oanso in Nova Scotia. On Thursday last
she completed the laying out of the first 143
miles of the cable at the Irish end of it, and
then returned to Ballinskellings, previous to
sailing for Canso to commence operations on
the Amerioan side. The section laid out
from the Irish coast is extra heavy oable, to
withstand the wear and tear to which it will
be subjected in shallow water near the
coast. A length of similar heavy cab'e will
ba laid down from Canso to deep water.
Lighter cable will answer in the intermediate portion across the ocean in deep water,
where there will be nothing to disturb it
after it has been laid. The laying down of
a new cable, which will be entirely under
British control, is a matter of Imperial importance, and is another long step towards
the construction nf a British steam aud
cable route from the mother country lo
Australia, via Canada. It will also of
course mean cheaper telegraphic rates for
despatches between Cunada and Europe. It
is to be hoped that it will be followed at an
early date by the establishment of a direct
cable news service between Canada and England. We have been too long dependent on
American sources for our cable news from
Great Britain. It is notorious that such
news is always colored by American correspondents in London to Buit American tastes,
and that it cannot be depended on. To know
the truth on any subject, of importance we
have to await the slower course of the
British mails; in the meantime the nimble
lies cabled by the American correspondents
to New York get such a Btart that it is
generally impossible, even were it worth
while, to correct them. It is to be earnestly hoped that there will, now that tho Commercial Company's cble is being laid, be an
end of this misleading and annoying state of
things before long.
Referring to the recent royal marriage
at Cobourg, it may be mentioned that the
Princess Victoria Melita, the bride, iB a
daughter of Prinoe Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh, who is now reigning Duke of Saxe-
Cobourg-Gotha. Her mother is a Russian
prinoess, daughter of the late Czar Alexander II. The present Czar Alexander III,
is her unole, and the Czarowioh her cousin.
The anarchists have lost a great opportunity
by not exploding a bomb in the church at
Cobourg when the ceremony was proceeding, but the police were on their guard, and
they were too well watched.
Rt. Hon. John Morley, Chief Secretary
for Ireland, introduced the Evicted Tenants'
bill in the House of Commons on Thursday.
The bill is praised as a moderate and just
measure. Thomas Harrington, M.P., Parnellite, said the bill was disappointing, and
would never satisfy Ireland. John Dillon,
M.P, anti-Parnellite, declared that on the
contrary the bill was an exceedingly valuable one. The new tenants, he said, would
gladly retire nnder the terms of compensation provided by it. As a matter of faot, if
the new tenants make any difficulty about
retiring, they had better provide themselves
with coffins, for they will be very apt to get
shot. A man who takes land over another
man's head, as they say in Ireland, gets but
little pity from any section of the population, if he happens to be shot for it. Moat
Irish juries, if left to their own devices,
would be apt to return a verdict of "Served
him right," Thomas Sexton, another anti-
Parnellite M.P,, says that it ia not an ideal
bill, but about aa good as any Ireland was
likely to get from an English Parliament.
Mr. Morley muat feel that it ia not exactly
an oasy taak to satisfy his Irish frienda.
It is annouced that another royal marriage is on the tapis. The Princess Alix of
Hesse, who, we believe, is also a granddaughter of the Queen, haa been betrothed
to the Czarowich, Nicholas, the eldest son
of the Czar and heir of the Russian crown.
It is reported to be quite a love match, ut
least on the prince's part. It waB at first
rather opposed by the Emperor and Empress
of Russia, but seeing thai their son's mind
wae fixed on it, they gave way, and an Imperial ukase was issued making it lawful for
the Czarowich to marry out of the Russian
national church. The Princess Alix haa, of
oourse, been brought up as a Lutheran, but
being liberal minded on matters of religion,
she ia not going to let a little thing like that
be a possible bone of contention in her intended husband's family, and has announced
her intention to be received into the Gieek
Church. This will no doubt be very gratifying to the Czar, who is bigotedly attached
to the national church of Russia. The
Czarowich on his part has proved his sincerity by breaking up a piivate domestic
establishment which he had in St. Petersburg, and to which it iB Baid he was much
attached���in plain English, he dismissed a
private mistress whom he kept. The moralB
of the Russian royal family ever since the
days of Peter the Great, aod probably long
before, have been very loose. It is right,
however, to mention that the present Czar
enjoys the rcpu* ation of being a moral man
in his domestic relations. It is to be hoped
that the Princess Alix feels much complimented at ihe proof of affection for her that
the Czarowich has given, in breaking up his
private domestic establishment.
Daring Robbery and Shooting by an Unknown Bandit in Portland.
Portland, April 23.���An unknown robber entered the offioe of the county treasurer
in the courthouse at 3:15 Saturday ufter-
noon, shot the cashier in charge, Charles B
Malm key, and then, jumping through a
window, made lus escape with about $600
of the county funds. The victim of the
shooting was the younyest sou of County
Treasurer Mal.rkey. The shot entered Ins
right s*de anil is believed to have penetrated
the right lung His physician does not
think it will prove fatal, though the young
man is in a critical condition.
The treasurer, Mr. Malarkey, stepped out
of his office at 3 o'olock to go to another
part of the court house, He left hiB sou in
the office, inteuditig to return in a very few
minutes. The unknown robber entered the
treasurer's office and asked for change for a
$20 hill. Young Malarkey at once stepped
to the vault au 1 opened the door preparatory to giving him the change.
As the door of the vault was swung open
the report of a pistol rane out through the
courthouse. The people in the sheriffs and
adjoining offices heard the noise, but no
attention was paid to it, their attention
was paid to it, their attention beii g attracted by the Industrials, who wero holding a meeting ou the plaza in front of the
courthouse. Young Malarkey lay on the
floor nearly two hours before anyone discovered that anything was wrong. His
father went to the door and, finding it
locked, opened it, and when he entered saw
his son Ij iug on the floor iu a pool uf blood,
almost unconscious. He gave the alarm
and a physicit*n was immediately summoned. The young man was able to talk,
but the physiciau forbids his exerting himself enough to give details of the affair. He
was removed to his home and is resting
easily. No one saw the robber enter, and
there is no c:ue to hiB identity.
Murder Will Out Illustrated Again.
Spokane, April 23.���There waa a dramatic scene in court here Saturday in the
Wilson murder trial. Charles Wilson, his
son Benton and daughter Nellie are on
trial for the murder of the lalter's husband,
J. W. Johnson, near Chattaroy, The oourt
had overruled a motion for dismissal, when
Judgo Clagget, for the defense, announced
that he had a revelation to make, that Benton Wilson killed Johnon; that it.was done
partly in self defense, but more particularly
in defense of his sister, and that the others
wrre innocent. Benton went on the stand
Mid told hia story of the tragedy. He aaid
he vv *8 walking along the road with Johnson, trying to get from him a check for hiB
sister's trunk. Johnson frothed with rage.
Suddenly he turned with a threat logo back
and kill his wife, and aB he did so he threw
his hand hack to his revolver packet. Then
young Wilaon struck him on the back of the
h< ad with a knotty club, crushing in hiB
skull. Wilson dragged the body into the
brush and that night buried it.
The jury, after being out five hours, returned a verdict of murder in the second
degree againat. young Benton Wilson, and a
vi-i'dicl of not guilty againat hia aister, Mra.
Johnson, wife of the murdered man, and hia
father, Charles Wilaon. The case has excited widespread interest. The body of J.
W. Johnson, Charles Wilson's son-in-law,
was found in a shallow grave near Chattaroy with hia skull crushed in The murder
had evidently been committed about two
yeara ago. The elder Wilson had last been
seen in company with Johnson near the spot
where the body was found. He was arrested
recently for the crime, and hiB son and
daughter, the latter Johnson's wife, were
tried as accomplices.
No Coal Strike in Washington State.
Seattle. April 23.���The strike of ooal
miners, whioh began all through the eastern
States is not likely to extend to this State,
acoording to present appearances. The Gil-
man miners accepted the reduotion offered
them a month ago, and the Newcastle men
on April 1st signed new contracts for a year
at a 10 per oent. reduction. The wages at
Franklin have not been changed, as the contracts hold good till August 1st. At Black
Diamond the wages are about the same as at
Franklin, and no strike is likely there without the prosptot of its becoming general.

"Gentleman Jim" In London.
London, April 23.���J. J. Corbett, the
pugilist, made his first appearance in England on the stage at tho Diury Lane theatre
Saturday night. The champion was welcomed by a large audience. The entrance
of Corbett upon the stage was loudly
cheer* il. The punohing bag and training
scene of "Gentleman Jack" was a revela-
lalion to the British people, and thoy were
astonished at the clover di��play made by
the champion, and demanded an onoore,
and he ohlig��*.l the audience hy a second
exhibition of his skill.
When Corbett appeared as for battle in
the last act, his form and appearance called
forth demonstrations of applause and at tho
end of the act he was called bofore the curtain and applauded enthusiastically amid
cries of "Speech." Corbett, in a few well
ohosen words, thanked the audience for the
reception. A large basket of flowers,
marked, "From Cleveland friends," was
handed to the champion upou the stage.
There were many ladies among the audience, and prominent in one of the boxes
was Charley Mitchell and a parly of friends.
British Military Strength.
London, April 23.���The London Court
Journal saya of the British armf, "In case
of need we could put into the field for servioe at home a force of 332,000 men, exclusive of the militia, 10,000 yeomanry, and
nearly 228,000 volunteera. The regular
army numbers olose upon 220,000 of all
ranks, and these oould uponmn emergency
be supplemented by 80,000 reserve men and
30,000 militia reservists, making in all a
total of 330,000 men for servioe abroad. We
have thus a grand total of 662,000 men
available for aervioe at home a nd abroad."
Funeral of the Late Mr. Soott.
The interment on Sunday afternoon of the
mortal remains of the late Robert Sender-
son Scott, waB one of the largest attended
funerals ever witnessed in Nanaimo. It ia
computed that fully three thousand persons
assembled in the vicinity of the cemetery
and the dead man's residence. It must have
been some passing consolation to the bereaved family to observe how widely known and
well respected the deceased geullman Was.
The representatives of the various lodges
and orders to which Mr. Scott had belonged
assembled on the lawn in front of the residence, where the unsealed casket was
placed,and took a last look at their departed
brother and friend. The Rev. D. A. McRae of St. Andrews Presbyterian church, to
which congregation the deceased had belonged, read the funeral service of the Presbyterian faith and then the procession, of
great length, wended its way to the
Nanaimo cemetery, where a large concourse
of people awaited its coming.
At the cemetery the reverend gentleman
concluded the burial services and the masonic ritual of the dead was read by Mr. W. H.
S. Perkins and Mr. Marcus Wolf coujointly.
The Oddfellows and Pythian services were
also read by Messrs. Glenn and Horribin
respectively.
The pallbearers were Messrs. C. C. McKenzie, Dr. McKechnie, M. Bate, John
Frame, XV. A. Young, and J. M. Brown.
Hilbert k Son had charge of the interment.
The floral tributes were many and handsome
being contributed by numerous friends of
tbe deceased.
Police Court���Yesterday.
The Mottishaw vs. Wadsworth and Crewe
case in yesterday's Police Court afforded another 'striking" illuatration of the inadvisi-
bility of ou'sid* rs inte* f-ring with family
matters and affairs. The triangular encounter in which the defendants and plaintiffs indulged iu on Friday last was indicative of bad neighborly feeling even on the
five acre lots where i he flowers of spring are
blooming and promises of a good strawberry
crop. However, the magistrate adjudicated
the matter very nicely and held the parties
in their own recognizances of $100 each to
keep the peace for six months.

FOOT-BALL.
A Strong Wish to Keep   Krutallty On* of
the Ganie.
Little need be said of the momentum
plays. They were introduced last year
by Mr. Deland, though they were seen
for the first time at tlie Harvard-Yale game
at Springfield, practically at the end of the
season, and their use then-fore did not become gener il. They have spread not only
over the East, but into the far West, and
been played, one might say, universally by
all teams professing any knowledge of
modern football. They have been more
instrumental in raising this ory of "brut
ality" in football than any set of plays that
were ever put forth. However. they
have done some good in convincing
careful students of the game that,
after all is said and done, straight,
fast football will score more points iu a
game than showy tricks. They have been
very hard on the men, which is quite eaBy
to understand, aud it is surprising indeed
there have not been more serious accidents.
Naturally it was a question of very short
time after the introduction of flying plays
before they would be met by flying resistance, aud so this season we have seen offensive flying plays met by flying defensive work, and what the result has been
every football man knows. These momentum or flying plays should all bo legislated
out of the game. There has beeu some
talk. I note, of retaining lhe flying wedge
on the kick off, but I do not see any more
reason for keeping this wedge on the kick-
off than of retaining it throughout the
gam**. There is nothing particularly
skilful in it. It is merely adding speed to
the old wedge, the principle being that it
is much harder to stop men on tlie run.
It would continue to be met by flying defensive play, and we should be perpetuating
one of the most offensive features of the
gam*-.
Classed with the momentum plnya must
be considered the flying interference,
which we saw very skilfully done by the
University of Pennsylvania team as well as
by Harvard, though tlie former carried it
off much more successfully. This is the
style of play tliut, while not so trying on
the men as some of tue others of the flying
species, ia of a pattern not at all desirable.
Moreover, this flying interference play,
particularly as sho.vn by Harvard this sea
sou, was not a gr.un l-gainer. It will have
to be legUlmed out along with the rest of
the new-fangled flying plays. And it wi!.
not take very elaborate legislation to do
away with all this flying business. The
rule need simply bo mad*' that uo man shall
start uniil the ball is actually ill play, and
the problem is solved.���Harper's Weekly
Beauty In Agony.
The amber light streamed through the
opalescent shades of the lamp. The blue
hangings of the room sliinini'Med in the
yellow glow, The flames leap-d in riotous red and gold, flashed iu lilac crimson against the asbestos back ot the gas
atove. In the silvery sheen of the long
mirror the dancing flames, the topaz lamp
light and the cerulean blue of the denim
draperies were reflected.
The mirror gave back another vision���a
woman with tawny hair falling in a waving,
curling mass to her waist. A woman with
uufathonable eyes in wIiobo gold green
depths all the mystery of life and death
was held. A woman with white, cameo
like face. But what a look it wore! VVhut
anguish was in the wide, wild eyes. Wiiat
misery curved the lips of pomegranate red.
She raised her arms, as curved and warm
and pink as a goddess's, back of her golden
hair, above her stately head. There was
despair in the gesture. There was despair
iu the way the lithe figure bent backward;
despair in the glowing* glorious eyes; despair that deepened aud darkened; anguish
that intensified.
Suddenly she fell on her kuees. There
Was almost madness in the gesture with
which she Bhut out the view ot lier own
ripe, warm, lovely, agonized face. Hut
there was wild triumph in the tone iu which
ahe cried*:
"I'd like to see one of the Delsarte
girls oome op to that position of despair."
Gems,
The Orion diamond is believed to be
responsible for sixty-.seveu murders.
The island of Ceylon is tlie most remarkable gem deposit iu the world.
Pliny, in. the first century, was the first
writer to describe the diamond.
The carat, used in estimating the weight
of gems is a grain of Indian wheat.
The pearl is ouly oarbonate of lime, is
readily affected by acids and burns into
lime.
The pearl is the only gem that does not
require the lapidary's art to bring out its
beauty.
Tbe largest diamond ever known was the
Great Mogul, which weighed in its rough
795 carats.
The diamond has been found on all the

(Extract from "Colonist," April 13.)
The deputation of Kaslo citizens and civio
officials who arrived in the city several days
ago with the object of interviewing the
Government in respect to the Kaslo and
Slocan railway���asking that it be put on
as favorable footing as the Nakusp and
Slocan���returned home thia morning, evidently satisfied with the outcome of their
interviews with Premier Davie and his
colleagues. The members of the deputation
were muoh pleased with their courteous
reception and the distinct disposition shown
by- tbe Government to deal fairly and
squarely witb them. The amendment to
the Railway Companies' Act, introduced by
the Government and whioh has just become
law, is pronounced entirely satisfactory,
and construction will now proceed at once.
When the delegates left Kaslo the people
there were waiting for the assurance that
the railway was a "sure go" ; now that
they have received the welcome news, the
burnt distriot will be immediately rebuilt,
much finer struotures in every way replacing those destroyed by the fire of a few

"Now I tumble to it right enough,"
said Putty. "1 see you're a geh'leinan,

men. But you will understand, sir,
that all tliis here is ageu the law, aud I
lay myself open to lose my license and

"I will pay you for your risk. How

"It's more risky than what you think.

"Bet ween 2 aud 3 in tbe morning, if

"That'd do." Then after a little consideration Putty said: "Here I'll tell
you what I'll do with you. You shall
have the use of my room for a dollar a
night while you're on the lookout, and
you shall hand over five quid the night
the job is pulled off and your mates get
clear. Now 1 can't say fairer than
that, can I?"
Tara * accepted these terms, and after
some further discussion he and Drigo left
the Joy, saying* they would return the
following afternoon,
1 slipped out of the Joy by the way I
had entered it and hurried round to the
front, impelled, I think, by some unrecognized hope that Taras would nod
to me again. I know that I sank down
upon the steps of Baxter's wharf disconsolate when I saw him in the distance turn the corner of Ferryboat alley
and disappear without looking back.
1 hud been sitting there in dull
apathy, my elbows on my knees and my
cnin iu my palms, a quarter of au hour
or twenty minutes, when I heard a step
in the alley and turning my eyes saw
Drigo coming back. Just before he
reached the Mariner's Joy he stoppeu
and facing about waited a couple of
minutes or so. looking up the alley as if
In make sure that he was not followed
1 nen iie dive*! (illicitly down the two
bieps and entered the house. I had taken a disliae to the man from the first.
There was an evil, wicked look in his
lace. There was treachery in his furtive glances, in the very stoop of his
suuuluers. Why had he come back
alone'.' What further business had he
with the bloke which he could not have
done when Taras was with him? These
questions aroused my faculties into unwonted energy. Once more I slipped
round to tho back of the house and up
the balcony into the room behind the
bar.
Drigo was talking to Putty, but in
such a low key that I could make nothing of the sounds thut reached me. I
caught a glimpse of them through the
crude of the door���their two villainous
heads close together ovor the bar���and
drew as near us I dared, yet still I could
distinguish no words.
"Bur what are you going to do with
him tin u?" Putty asked, and his voice,
though low, was distinct enough���perhaps because 1 was more used to it.
"1 conld not gather the reply; but,
raising his voice to give emphasis to the
otter, i heard this clearly:
"He ottered you _.">; I'll give you
double, aud you can' betray as to the
police if we don't pay up."
"And a tenner won't pay me to be a
haccessory to murder"	
Drigo silenced him with a long "hist,"
and stepping sidewaVs to cast a glance
into the jiari.i: lie CiUlir'ut si.'tt of me.
He gave the alarm to Putty ill a hurried
tone of terror, and the next moment a
pewter pot flew at my head. I was
quick enough to duck and avoid the
missile, but I only escaped falling into
the savage hands of the bloke by fling
ing myself over tho balcony and falling
into the mud below.
"Don't let me get nigh you this   side
of next mouth, you , or I'll pull the
weazandout of you," he cried, shaking
his fist down at me as I slunk of around
��� stranded barge.
CHAPTER _,
A MYSTERY.        ^L___
I lodged In Baxter's wharf. There
was a hole in the side of the wall, under
the stairs, for ventilating the cellers,
closed with an iron grating. One of the
bars was gone, and through the narrow
opening 1 could just manage to squeeze
���thanks to being a kipper. Once inside
I had the whole run of the warehouse.
It was quite empty, but on the top floor
some old sacking had been left, and this
served me for a bed, It was dry and
good enough for an outcast like me,
who knew nothing of comfort and still
less of luxury. I slept there that night,
ami the next morning I was lucky enough
to get work (sail mending) at a ship
chandler's in Cable street, for which he
gave me my dinner and tea and paid me
seveiiiience halfpenny into tlie bargain.
It was dark when 1 left there between
7 and ti. and feeling safe with regard to
Putty I hurried down to Ferryboat
Rtairs as quickly as I could���running
part of the way. I was anxious to know
what wa- going on at the Mariner's Joy.
I had been thinking about, it all day long
���1'*���c.'i.'i*,* a strange emotion within me
such as 1 had never felt before, aocom-
panied_with a yeanling to bob Taras
again���to get another kind look from
him, I resolved if I could to tell him
of Drigo s s *.'oud visit to the Joy and all
1 had m* 'in uird, that, he might be warn
in ii, liniil tie- treachery which it seemed nr, ti .* clear his ceiiiMuion Intended.
Putty was lounging against the doorpost of the front door of the Joy, in
Sweet Apple lane, under the flickering
light of the gas lamp at the corner of
Ferryboat alley. He had a long clay
pipe in his mouth, aud 1 judge 1 lie was
looking out for T.iras and Dn.ro. who
had not yet arrived, I waited in the
shadow of an archway until he Knocked
the ashes out of his pipe und turned into
the house, yawning and scratching the
back of his head. Then I slipped down
the alley to the stairs.
There was no light to be seen at the
back of the house. The passage door
was shut, and the rickety shu-.tersof tiie
bay window were closed also for tlio
first time in my remembrance. Under
the stairs I found a dry timber where I
ci mid sit secure from observation, and
there 1 waited for Taras, He was uot
likely to come for five or six hours,
having fixed tiie hour for the pgeap ' of
his friends at 2, but I didn't r..i**i * mt.
It was a mild, still night. I had nothing else to do after dark but to think.
and I might just as well sit there md
dream as anywhere else. I heard Putty
put up the shutters about 11, and when
1 went np the alley au hour later I saw
by the glimmer of light through the
dirty fanlight over the side door that he
was still sitting up.
A little al'ter tho clock had struck 2 I
oaught sight of a boat coming across
the river from the Hotherhiilie side. As
it drew in to the steps I made out one
man at the oars and two men in the
sti rn seat. Then my heart beat quicker, for I felt that Taras was there before
I he i rd his voice.
"We shan't want you any more tonight." he said as tho boat ran ashore,
"but you will be at the same place tomorrow at tlie same time."
"I'll be t lere master, no fear. Good
night, gentlemen."
"Good night."
The boatman pushed oft*, while Taras
and Drigo groped their way up the dark
and slipp.ry steps over my head. I
knew the other was Drigo by the sound
of his harsh, guttural voice cursing as
he stn.nbled.
As soon as I dared I slipped from my
hilling place and ran up the stairs like a
cat. When I reached the top, I saw
their figures standing up sharp aud
Mick against th" light farther up the
alley���Taras,squart and erect; Drigo.
with his head buried in his Blimiklers.
They stopped at the side door of rue Joy
an i rapped lightly. Tlie light from
within fell upon Taras' fair beard as the
door opened. A few words were inter-
eh uiged in a low tone, the door closed.
aii-1 the two men went on, turning the
corner tin .er the gas lamp into Sweet
Apple lane. I did not attempt to foi
low them, dreading to pass the door
where Putty might still be standing,
bur,stoo i there with a feeling like the
craving for food in my breast until the
impulse to overtake Taras and speak to
hi:ii. even though Drigo were still with
him, overcame my fear. Then I ran
swiftly up tlie alley and along the lane.
Straining my eyes with mad desire to
See him again.
They were gone; the lane was empty.

IN STEP WITH THE SEASON
Our place is now full of all the dainty goods peculiar to this season. We have everything new that has been produced for the Spring and Summer Trade of 1894 We don't want to tire you with prices on one or two insigniflcent
articles���but assure you that this Spring everything in our stock has been marked as low as it's possible to buy the same
quality of goods elsewhere.
As every lady of experience in buying Dry Goods knows���there are certain brands and makes,of goods which are
called "seconds" by the manufacturers, and can of course be bought at lower prices than "firsts"-these are often pushed,
in some cities, as first-class goods, aud in some cases deceive even a practiced eye.
We never as yet had to resort to this kind of business, and will always try to maintain our reputation for keeping
only the very best goods.
