Ottawa, April 18.���The annual report of
the Postmaster General for the year ended
30th June, 1893, has just been issued, and
includes muoh matter interesting to the
Province of British Columbia. Following
are excerpts taken from the Blue book just
published:
The total amount paid by the Dominion
Government for mail transportation in
British Columbia within the year ended 30th
June, 1893, wus $05,570.
Following are the figures showing the
number of post offices in operation, extent
of mail travel, estimated number of letters
and other articles of mail matter posted in
the Province of British Columbia, during
the year ended 30th June, 1893:
Number of offices in operation on the 1st
July, 1893, 219.
Extent of mail service���Number of miles
of post route, 6,055; annual travel thereon,
1,300,094.
Estimated number of letters and other
articles of  mail   matter  posted  in  British
Columbia during the year ended 30th June,
1893:
Letters, 3,400,000;
Post cards, 275,000;
Registered tenets, 110,000;
Free letters, 110,000;
Number   of   transient   newspapers    and
periodicals, books,  packets,  oirculars, samples and putt* ins, etc., 48,000;
Number of pickets of printers' copy,
photogrtphs, deeds, insurance policies, etc.,
68,000;
Number of packets of fifth class matter,
ordinary merohaudise, open to examination,
30,000;
Number of paroels by parcel post, 10,500;
Number of closed paroels  for the United
Kingdom, 1,252.
These figures are considerably lower than
that of auy other Provinoe in the Dominion,
but taken in the per capita of population
sense, they are, if anything, proportionately
greater.
As might perhaps be expeeted from the
mountainous character of the couJCV.'y, th
extent of the coast line, and the fact that an
important section of the provinoe, including
t he capital, iB on an island, the water services in British Columbia are of greater extent than those in any of the provinces.
For the maintenance of the conneotion between the island and the* mainland, there
are touching at different points, three daily
services, a tri weekly, and a weekly service.
Victoria exchanges mails directly with Van
couver and Port Townsend once eaoh way
daily; with New Westminster three times
per week; and with Sau Francisco weekly.
Iu addition to these there is a daily service
eaoh way between Vancouver and Nanaimo.
Ainng the Northern coast and in tbe Gulf
of Georgia there are five services, one of
which extends from Viotoria to Naas Harbour, a distance of 668 miles. The trips on
this route are fortnightly in the summer and
monthly in the winter. Of the others, two
make connection,weekly between Vanoouver
and tho Gulf Islands; while a third maintains relations between Comox and these
islands.
Iu the mountainous districts of the Interior of the mainland there is now established a very satisfactory Bysteni of stoam-
boat. service. The Kootenay dis riot, of
which Nelson is the centre, is served by a
steamer whioh runs down the Columbia
river from Revelstoke on the main line of
the Canadian Pacific Railway to Robson.
where a transfer to the Columbia and
Kootenay Railway takes place. From Nelson there are steamers running witb a frequency corresponding to the business necessities of the places concerned, to Kaslo, Ains-
worth and Pilot Bay, the prinoipal mining
settlenents in the interior. For the Okan-
agan distriot, which lies south of the Canadian Pacifio Railway from Sicamous, satisfactory arrangements have been made for
the first time this year. Until a short time
ago the only means of access to that district
was a stage making trips varying from
weekly to moi thly accniding to the distance
from the railway. But the building of the
Shuewap and Okanagan branoh of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and the establishment
of a steamer service on Okauagan Lake have
put it within the power of the department
to extend tu that couutry facilities equal to
ita requirements.
Referring to the recent postal connections
made between Australasia aud the Dominion, the Deputy Postmaster General
says:
The es'ablisumeut by tbe Hon. M.
Bowell, Minister of Trade and Commerce,
of direot communication between Canada
and Australia by a line of British steamships ealling at Honolulu and Fiji, has completed the last link in the ohain binding the
two great colonies of Canada and Australia
and the mother country together; and as
affording the means of direct mail communication between Canada and Australia
may justly be regarded as by far the most
important event in the history of the Canadian postoffice since the opening of the
Canadian Pacific railway to Vanoouver.
During the year there were returned to
the dead letter branoh 15,245 registered
letters found to contain value.
As an instanoe of the extraordinary way
in whioh correspondence sometimes disappears, the following extract from a letter
written by Mr. Adam Brown, postmaster at
Hamilton, Ont., may be interesting:���
"A few days ago, one of our letter oarriers
dropped a letter through the slit of a door,
rang the bell and walked on.   When a short
and behold! he discovered an opening between the stone sill and the flooring and
peering in saw the top of a letter���pulled it
out���then he discovered another, and finally
a third, all of whioh he brought
to the surface. One of the
letters being postmarked in August, I
sent up one of my men to-day to make a
thorough eXomiiiaUou, and he found there a
mouse's ueBt and he brought back nibblings
of envelopes; so that I have no doubt Mr.
and Mrs. Mouse aud family have had nice
beds out of letters which the occupants
should have got. Of course all the letters
would not go to the mouse's chamber, only
such as tipped over at a jittiti ular angle.
"After we made the discovery I got departmental inquiry No. 6552, Book 19, for
a letter posted at Marshall, Mich., 26th
August, containing $1.00, would you believe
it, this very letter happens to be one of the
three. I have reported its delivery and
bow it was found."
On the 1st of July, 1893, there were 42
money order offices in operation in British
Columbia,
The door was burst open and the fire was
found to be in rear of the building where
the ovens are It had already got a great
hold and it was only by the utmost promptitude and thorough working of the tire boys,
that a serious conflagration was prevented.
Had the/".lightest wind been prevailing at
the time, it is possible tho whole block between Bastion street and the Central hotel
would have been destroyed. Nanaimo is
providentially, very lucky in this respeot.
It is understood that there was no insurance
carried on the building. The damage doue
is of no very great consequence and will only
amount to a matter of a few dollars, the
stoppage of business, however, is a serious
consideration.
It was remarked by some business men
who were standing around at the time, that
this town should have a paid fire brigade
rather than a volunteer servioe. These remarks did uot in the least rtfl-ct ou the
present willing workers, bu'. the former
service certainly should ensure better organization and more concentration.
Mello Surrenders.
Buenos Avres, April 18.���The remains
of the Brazilian rebel fleet, commanded by
Admiral Mello, surrendered to the Argentine government on Monday night at this
port, together with 1,200 men. The rebel
ships are the Republiea, Meleroe, Iris,
Ura o and Esperanza. They are in a dilapidated condition and the rebels on board are
suffering from sickness, wounds and lack of
proper food.
On all Bides the utmost contempt is expressed for Admiral Mello, whose desertion
of Admiral Gama is looked upon as a piece
of cowardly treachery. It is openly stated
that Gama proposes to ueek out Admiral
Mello and compel him to meet him in
mortal combat. If the rebel admiral falls
into the lands of Peixoto there is little
doubt that he will be promptly tried by
oourl-mur iil and shot.
Observing Primrose Day in London.
London, April 19.���From an early hour
this morning hundreds, which developed
into thousands as the day advanced, have
gathered around the statue erected in Par
liament Square to tbe honor and memory of
the Rt. Hon. Benjamin Disraeli, Lord Bea-
conafield. One of the first to leave an
offering of primroses on the pedestal of the
statue waB a burly drayman who had driven
out with the dawn to deliver a load qfbeer.
AU grades and classes brought _*_K_ft'ing
of the simple flower, some in gorgeous devices and others in plain little bunches.
Livered ooachmen and hansom cab ies were
alike decoraleM with the Conservative emblem.

Henry S. Ives Dead.
Ashville, N.C., April 18.���Henry S.
Ives, "the Napoleon of Wall street," died
here last night of consumption. Henry S.
Ives came into prominence about eight years
ago. He wus the successor of Ferdiuand
Ward aB the most interesting object of
speculative Wall street. Ives was not more
than 26 years of age when he first startled
Wall street by his operations in Cincinnati,
Hamilton and Dayton, by which he finally
obtained possession of the road. For nearly
two years he was connected with all big
movements iu the street, au*l no operation
was of great enough magnitude to scare him
away. Having C. H. k D. in his grip i-.e
manipulated the stock in a manner
to suit himself, and engaged iu
any number of outside ventures.
When the Baltimore & Ohio road
wa.< on the market Iv* s made arrangements
to ake an option up*n the property, Richmond Terminal and Richmond k Danville
also attracted his attention and for months
he was the bright particular financial star
worrying men who weie trying to be honest
in their dealings. Finally the inevitable
collapse came. The firm of Ives k Stayner
went under, and the liabilities were nearly
$20,000,000. Ives was indicted and a
number of civil suits were filed against him.
On tbe civil suits be was held in $25,000
bail; and was confined in Ludlow street jail
for several months. In the c nd the civil
suits were settled, and he also escaped punishment on the criminal indictments. About
three years ago Ives was married, and ha
been living very quietly sine**.
Childron Crushed to Death.
Montreal, April  18.���The ceiling of the
Riverside Bchool at  Point St. Charles,   cat-
lapsed   Tuesday.      Three    children     were
crushed to death aud several injured.
Obituary.
Yesterday morning between the hours of
11 and 12 Mr. Robert H. Scott, a well-
known and much respected resident of
Nanaimo and district for many years,
passed away at his residence on the Wellington road, midway between Nanaimo and
Northfield. A few days ago Mr. Soott
underwent an operation which was necessary, but which unfortuuately did not effect
his recovery. From that time he haB been
slowly sinking, attended with unabating
care and surrounded by his family at the
last.
The deceased spr-mg from a mining race
in Scotland, where he served in different
mining positions. After holding different
situations connected wi'h mining in the
States for ten years, Mr. Scott came to
Biitish Columbia in 1870 Fiom that time
he h_ been in the employ of the Vancouver
Coal Company, the Dunsmuir Company and
the New Vancouver Coal Company, being
manager of the latter company's mines at
Northfield at the time of his decease.
There was no man in this district with
more real friends, and who was more respected than Mr. Scott. His decease removes a well-known figure from our midst
and a man whom it was always a pleasure
to meet. He was a member of several
societies, and under their auspices will be
buried on Sunday next.
The full arrangements for the funeral have
uot yet been completed, but there is little
doubt tbat it will be one of the most largely
attended that has ->ver co_rred in or r.bout
Nanaimo. Messrs. J. Hilbert k Son have
been coin missioned with the undertaking of
the interment.
Plenty of Money In 'Frisco.
San Francisco, April 18.���Sin Francisco
banks are glutted with money, which tiny
would gladly loan ut 4 per cent, on good
security.	
Successful Test.
Victoria, April 18. ��� An exceedingly sue
oessful test was made of the Esquimalt
Marine Railway yeBterday. The steamer
Isabel, 600 tons, was successfully hauled up
in six aud one-half minutes.
Coxey's Contingent at Tacoma.
Tacoma, April 18.���General "Jumbo"
Cantwell, of the Northwestern Industrial
Army, has volunteered with the approval of
500 sympathizers, to grade the grounds for
the inter-state fair without pay, provided
the managers of the fair will board the Com-
monwealers. Two companies hav.i organized under General Jumbo and drill daily.
Smallpox Still Raging at Chioago.
Chicago, April 18.���Ten cases of smallpox have been found in the county hospital
here, and the institution has beon quarantined. The oity pest house is full, and
patients are Bleeping on the floors and in the
corridors. The health otfioialB have become
seriously alarmed at the situation, and today inaugurated a house to house search for
new oases in the more thickly crowded portions of the city.
Whist Permutations.
The following chances in whist hands will
be of interest to the many good players in
Nanaimo,:
. There are two recognized systems, the
English and the American. In English
whist the game is five points and honors���
ace, king, queen and knave of the trump
suit���are counted. Iu American whist the
game is still five poiutB, but honors are not
counted. The old English game���long
whist���consisted often points wtih honors
counted. American whist is not tho same
as American leads; thtse leads can be played
by individual playeis, whatever the game
may be. Richard A. Pioc or has written a
good book on "How to Play Whist." He
has also contributed to various magazines
articles on the subject, of chances in
card games. He calculaied that there are
no less tliau 635,0I3,")56,6U0 ways of
making a whist hand, and that there is only
one chance in 158,753,389,000���and then of
course Ihe dealer's trump must be taken���of
holding thirteen trumps. Out of 1,587,533,-
899 hands dealt, 342,132,219 hands will contain four cards of two su.tt, three cards of
one and two cards of one suit. There are
98,534,079,072 ways of making a hand that
will contain one five card suit, two three
oard suits and one two card suit, and 82, ���
000,000,000 ways of making a hand containing five cards of oue suit, four of another,
three of a third and two of a fourth. Fourth
in the order of frequency comes the hand
containing one five card suit, one four card
suit and two two card suits. There are 67,-
182,339,640 ways of making this
hand. "Only fifth in the order of
frequency," says Prootor, "conies the hand
which many suppose tbe most fnquent.that
of great uniformity of distribution," on*
four oard suit and ihree three card suits;
there a.e 6(1,905,856,160 ways of making
thi" ''and. The sixth hand in point of fre-
que: oy is that whioh contains six cards of
one suit, three o'another and two cards
from each of two suits. Speaking of whist
chances, Mr. Proctor discusses the "Yar-
horough hand," which contains no cards
over a nine. 1* was Bu called because Lord
Yarborough used to wager .t'1,000 to��l that
a hand of that kind would not be dealt. The
chauce that such a hand will be dealt is only
one in 182< chances, so that bia lordship's
bet was pretty safe.    Baltimore American.

(lypsy Men Without a Country.
Cholera times bring back the same
popular movements we read of in the
history of the middle ages, and they
incite bumbles and beadles to vraim-
agined pranks. The Pall Mall Gazette
remarks that gypsies are not popular in
the Swiss or the black forest health
resorts during the tourist season. The
other day a band of gypsies traveling
out of Baden into the Swiss canton of
Argau were brought to a stand by the
Swiss police in the middle of the bridge
which crosses the Rhine at Laufenberg.
One half of this picturesque old bridge
1b in Germany, the other half in
Switzerland. The Swiss police would
not permit them to cross the frontier.
Hereupon the Baden police appeared
and refused to allow the regiment of
mendicants to remain in Germany. A
long diplomatic controversy between
the heads of the Swiss and Baden police
was carried on in the middle of the
bridge, which ended in the concession
of the German police that the gypsies
must return to the place from whence
they came���namely, the eastern part of
the German empire.

others felt the pressure of the prevailing

THE INDUSTRIAL SITUATION IN
THE STATES.
Bradstreet's of Saturday lant says that
telegrams from the more important distributing points in lhe United States contain
evidences ot renewed activity and of influences toward improvement. Reports
from San Francisco are generally favorable
as regards trade, but the crop reports from
Southern California and the West San Joaquin valley are not so favorable. In these
localities extreme heat, with north winds,
has seriously damaged the growing wheat.
The industrial situation in the United States
at large is also not encouraging. There are
prospects of a widespread strike of coal
miners this month, with a further probability of strikes and lookouts in the large
cities early in May. JSradstreet's states that
there are at present 56 strikes iu force
throughout the country, involving 55,000
people. The March earning of the railways
was 838,278,253, nearly 13.2 per cent. Ihsb
than last year. For three months the earnings were $106,913,394, a falling off 12.6 per
cent, from last year. The bank clearings also
show a large falling off from last year.
The wheat exports, too, for the week have
been much below the average. Altogether
Bradstreet's report, except in the matter of
the indications of renewed activity in trade
of which itB telegrams from important distributing points speak, is far from encouraging. The depression ic the United States
ia clearly not over, and if the great strike
threatened by the coal miners takes place
things will undoubtedly be made much
worse. At suoh a time to engage in strikes
for higher wages, as many of the American
workmen are doing, not to mention other
and greater strikes threatened, seems to ub
to say the ieasl of it not wise. The men
ought at least to wait till trade and manufactures havo revived aud employment is
again plenty. Then there would be some
ohance of a successful strike in cases where
adequate wages were not paid. But in the
present state of things strikes for higher
wages are only calculated to make bad
worse.
A St. Paul despatch sayc that a crisis has
some in the Oreat Northern strike, and that
the company will from this time play its
band with sternness. Judge Sanborne, of
the U. S. Court of Appeals, on Wednesday
granted an injunction against the strikers
both in Mincsota and North Dakota, and
cited them to appear in court in St. Paul on
the 27th instant, to show cause why "each
of them should not be enjoined and constrained from disabling or rendering in any
wise unfit lor convenient and immediate use
any engines, cars, or other property of the
Great Northern Railway Company for use
in inter-state commerce, for carrying of
mails or government supplies, and from interfering in any manner with the possession
of any locomotive, cars, or any other property of the said Great Northern Railway
Company." United States Marshall Beed
immediately swore in a large number of
extra deputies and marshalls, and sent them
to various points where he judged their services would   be  required.   The  men, it is
stated, have decided to discontinue uncoupling and side-tracking trains until they
have had legal advice. The employees of
the Great Northern at Minneapolis, it is reported, have decided to strike.
One hundred settlers from Ontario left
Toronto for Manitoba and the Northwest
on Tuesday night.
The last pure blooded Iroquois chief is
reported to have just breathed his last at
the village of Caughnawaga, near Montreal.
He bore an Indian name which signified
Broken Knife. All the remaining Indians
of Caughnawaga have, it is claimed, French
or Scotch blood in their veins. So ends the
last of the fierce Iroquois nation.
A Berlin despatch states that Germany
does not want and has not proposed to
establish a German protectorate over the
Samoan Islands. A London despatch on the
other hand states that negotiations are in
progress, looking to a modification of the
existing arrangement in regard to these
islands. This can ouly mean that it is pro
posed to establish shortly a British or Aus
tralian protectorate over them, which there
is reason to believe the native population
would welcome.
A Sicilian deputy, named Giuseppe de
Felice, is being tried at Palermo on a charge
of conspiracy and sedition. It is alleged
that De Felice plotted to overthrow the
Sicilian authorities, and hand over the
island to the socialists, that for this purpose
he had carried on treasonable correspondence
with socialists in France,England, and other
foreign countries, and had drawn money
from them. "We are at the beginning of
the end," he said in one of his despatches,
The trial is likely to last for weeks, as the
Government will call 120 witnesses, and the
defence 250.
The political pot continues to boil furious
ly in Newfoundland. Parsons, editor, and
Perfor, proprietor, of the St. John's Evening
Telegram have been fined $112 eaoh by the
Supreme Court lor contempt in publishing
at i icles attributing partisan feeling to Justice Winter in unseating Messrs. Woods and
Moore aB members of the .Newfoundland
Legislature. The charge against the un
seated members v as for corrupt practices at
the recent eleciinn, but corrupt practices
have from long habit come almost to be
sanctioned as the established cus'om of the
counliy. Hence ihe great indignation expressed ��t the action of the judge in sum-
maiily checking it by unseating the delinquents. Nothing but partisan feeling, the
party advera ly a (Tee led think, could lead
the ju'lge to do so.
Fire at Vanoouver.
Phillip Sentell's shingle mill, located ou
Burrard Inlet, near the Columbia Brewery,
was totally destroyed by fire early yesterday morning. The mill was built about 18
months ago and had b* en shut down for
some time.    Origin unknown.
B. C. Hops In London.
Tbe satisfactory reports of the appreciation of British Columbia hops shown by the
merchants and lac ors in London, aie likely

Women tbe Same as Men.
The London k Lancashire Life Assurance
Co., have decided to insure women at the
same rate as men. Hitherto an extra of five
dollars per thousand was charged and is
still charged by other ximpanies. No
doubt a large number of our Nanaiino ladies
"illtake advantage of the reduced rates
and thii3 secure a competency in the shape
of an endowment policy. They also insure
miners on endowments and tontine plans.
The Highest Authority In America.
Printers Ink, the highest newspaper au
thority in America, speaks thus of The
Daily Teleoram-
"Did you ever hear ot a place called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your loc*.! daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of The Daily
Teleoram, Nanaimo, Briiish Columbia, and
ask fin a sample copy of his paper, aed when
you obtain it compare it with your home
production. Go down and talk with the
publisher about il afterwards, and ask him
why it is that he can't print as good a paper,
or obtain as good a local patronage, or have
his paper as tree from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
mav be learned from Nauaimo."

Tariff on Shingles.
Both the Canadian and United States
tariff bills propose to remove the duty on
shingles. The Canadian tariff comes into
force immediately, whereas the Wilson
tariff bill will nut become law for some time.
The Puget Sound shingle manufacturers
thus have a deoided advantage over the B.
.C. mills, and are preparing to ship to Manitoba in large quantities. The Vancouver
Board of Trade have accordingly passed a
resolution asking the Dominion Government
to retain the duty on shingles until the
Wilson tariff comes into force in the United
States.

rug. An inch is turned under on each
3ide, and four inches of each end is
marked off and reserved for fringe. The
disks are made of plush remnants from
the upholsterer's, or the remains, old or
new, of plush garments, trimmings or
fancy work. Sixty-one disk?, 2J inches
across, aro first out out, and from the
scraps left smaller *!isks of any size ob-
tainabls are cut. The larger ones are
applied first, 11 along each side, one exactly in tbe center, one in the middle of
each end aud tho rest at regular distances apart on lines running diagonally
from corner to corner nnd from the mill
die of the ends to the center disks in the
side rows.
If tbe plush is loosely woven���liable to
fray or ravel���the disks should be applied with buttonhole stitch, but if of
firm texture they may be simply hemmed on. After the large disks are arranged the smaller ones are scattered in
between, more or less thickly, according
to taste and material on hand, but the
rug is much prettier when there are no
spaces left large enough to hold one of
the medium sized disks. The ends are
fringed and overlaid with heavy worsted
upholstery fringe, mixed colors to blend
with all Bhades, or a single color to matoh
the darkest plush. The In'ailing is buttonholed flatly to the canvas, and the
nearest disks overlap it a trifle.
A lining of carpeting, ticking or any
heavy material is faced smoothly over
the under side and tacked to the canvas,
invisibly, beneath the disks. The Household, authority for the foregoing, suggests that pretty but inexpensive rugs
might*be fashioned after this model by
substituting burlap, pretty remnants of
cloaking, cloth, etc., and yarn fringe for
the materials named. Zephyr of different colors could then be used for a variety of stitches in applying the disks, or
they could all be buttonholed in place
with one col* *r and the spaces between
ornamented with fancy stitches in many
colors���a nice way to utilize odd bits of
zephyr and yarn.
Poison _t.
The poison ivy may be known from Itt
harmless prototype by the number of its
leaves. It is the three leafed ivy of the
woods that ia dangerous, that having ih *
leaves being safe, A further caution for
the woods and country roads is that the
poisonous sumac has white berries. Ne
red berried sumac is dangerouB, says Tin*
American Cultivator, authority fur the
foregoing.

KASLO:
(Extract from "Colonist," April 13.)
The deputation of Kaslo citizens and civic
officials who arrivod in the cily several days
ago with the object of interviewing the
Government in respect to the Kaslo and
Slocan railway- asking that it be put on
aB favorable footing as the Nakusp and
Sloean���returned home thia morning, evi-
den'ly satisfied with the outcome of their
interviews with Premier Davie and his
colleagues. The members of the deputation
were much pleased with their courteous
reception and the distinct dispositiou shown
by the Government to deal fairly and
squarely with them. The amendment to
the Railway Companies' Act, introduced by
the Government and which 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 district will be immediately rebuilt,
much finer structures in every way replacing those destroyed by the fire of a few
weeks ago. JJiNAIMO. B. C, FRIS>AY, APRIL 20. 1894.

All men look upon housecleaning as an evil derived for their special discomfort by the other sex. All women look
upon housecleaning as an evil likewise, but they know it to be a necessary one.
Housecleaning is unes apable. It must come to all���rich and poor, high and low. Twice a year does every grade
of womanhood meet upon common ground.
Festivals and vacations and joumeyis and other human happenings may be postponed - even done away with altogether. But housecleaning! Fate itself is not less unavoidable, and with the budding and falling of each year's leaves
does it as certainly loc m before-ms, the great twin horror of the year.
Draperies require renewing, lounges and chairs recovered, etc., etc. Now we carry an immense line of House Furnishing Goods, and only yesterday opened up another shipment of Lace Curtains, which we have only added charges to���
when marking���so they are therefore very cheap Then we have Art Muslins, Cretonnes and Fringes, Table Linnens and
NapMns, and a big stock of Sheeting and Pillow Cotton.
