Chaiu,kston, VV. Va.,Feb. 2.���The Montgomery miners are matching with a fore*)
estimated at from 300 to 500 meu, on
Stevens' coal mines at Acme to make the
mini*rs quit work. Sheriff Silman is on the
spot with an armed posse. Reliable informa
tion received here states that the miners
employed in the Stevens mines tuined out
at 4 p.m. nearly 300 strung, armed, and
prepared to meet the approaching atrik. rs.
Two cai loads of strikers from the Montgomery mines also armed with Winchesters
came to the mouth of the oreek and staried
for the mines un lout at six p.m. The
miners, who weut up lhe Cabin Oreek rond
to Aome by the train which curried **h
sheriff's posse, numbered 300 men. They
came down on twelve crowded gondolas from Montgomery and points above,
and reliable information statea all ate armed
with rifles, pistols, shotguns aud Winchesters. It is reported from a number of sources
that 500 armed men crossed the mountains
en route for Acme from Powelkon and other
points. This raises the number to nearly
900 men, who are more determined than
ever known in the history of this region.
No news of violence has yet reached here
nor has there been anything reported of
disorder or drunkenness. It seems to be
the result of concert oil aotion. It is impossible to secure news of what has oocurred
at the mines.

department. Few, if any, further subscriptions are now expected, as most of tbe
otters, of which notice "was sent by telegraph, are now all in. The schedule of
bonds was completed this morning, snd between now and Monday Secretary Carli-le
and Assistant Secretary Curtis will go over
the schedule and make the proper allotment.
Cleveland's Suzerainty.
London, Feb. 2.���The Pall Mall Gazette,
commenting on the action of Admiral Benham at Rio Janeiro, Bays: "As long as
Admiral Benham was content to protect
American vessels, he was well within his
right and duty; but the Government at
Washington has issued a paper declariug
that Admiral Beuham, besides protecting
American commerce, ought to end monarchist machinations. This is the Monroe doctrine, which iB not yet codified within tho
law of nations. If Admiral Benham attacks
a single Brazilian Insurgent, merely because
he suspects he is a mouaichist, he will be as
much a pirate as Admiral Da Gama would
have been if he had fired on an American
training vessel. Brazil is no moie under
President Cleveland's suzerainty ilian the
Unit* d States is under British  suzerainty."

An Amendment to tho Tariff Bill.
WASHINGTON*, Feb. 2.���The resolution of
Senator Stewart, denying the right of the
secretary of tho tieasury to issue bonds,
which became a subject for discussion during lhe morning hour in tbe Senate several
days ago, to-day succeeded in side tracking
everything else. Mr. Vilas, (Democrat,
Wis.), occupied almost the entiro afternoon
in defending the secretary of the treasury.
Mr. VilaB predicated his remarks upon aD
amendment to the resolution, declaring the
authority of the secretary to apply the proceeds from the sale of bonds to appropriations made by Congress, and proceeded to
make his argument garni from a legal
standpoint. At times the discussion partook of the nature of a colloquy, such Republican senators aB Me-srs. Ho��r, Aldricb,
Allison and Piatt taking issue with Mr.
Vilas. Mr. Quay gave notice of an amendment he iutended to offer lo the Tariff Bill,
whioh provides for the free coinage of silver
under the act of Feb. 28th, 1878, the purchase of gold bull ion and the issuance of
forty-year treasury notes bearing low interest, all of which promises to renew the
financial discussion of the extra session.
Shortly after 4 o'clock the Tariff Bill was
laid before the Senate and referred to the
Finance oommittee. At 5:15 the Senate adjourned until Monday next.

De Gama Is Still Game.
Rio Janeiro, Jan. 30.���Via  Montevideo,
Feb. 2.���The negotiations for arbitration of
the difference between the  government and
the insurgents have  been   continued during
the week.     Admiral   Da   Gama's   written
proposition   haH   been   Buhtmiud lo   Rear-
Admit al Beuham, commander of the United
Slates fleet.     The government propositions
wore completed yesterday, and wire  placed
in the hands of General Carvallo  last night,
to be delivered   *.o   Rear Admirrl  Benham
today. Mr. G. M. Rollins has been Admiral
Da Gama's agent  in  the negotiations.    He
says     that    his     chief     is     anxious   for
a    peaceful    settlement.      The    government is   willing   to   make   a  compromise,
despite all warlike reports.     The  trouble
over dischaigiug   the  cargoes of American
vessels interrupted the negotiations, but did
not stop them permanently.    The spectacle
of the American fleet ready  for action yesterday was magnificent.    All Amerioani in
the city  are rejoicing   over   Admiral   Ben-
ham's decisive  action   in bohalf oi  Uuited
States   commerce.     The   British   Minister
cabled 2,000 words concerning  the incideut
to   ihe   Loudon   Foreign   Oflice.    Persons
sympathizing with the insurgents are bitter
lowaid   the American   commander.    They
Bay that headed  solely   in the  interest of
Presid* nt Peixoto and  otherwise  misrepresented his course.    Admiral da Gama's position iu the harbor grows worse daily. Three
desperate   night   attacks   on Armico  have
failed, while the  government   has mounted
several new seven inoh guns at  that poiut.
Rear-Admiral    Benham    said     yesterday:
"Admiral D Gama will not be able to leave
the  harbor, unless he acts soon, but he can
surrender and  obtain an asylum  with us at
any time."   Admiral DaGama  said  yesterday that Admiral Mello, with ihe Insurgent
cruiser Republiea and   three   transports of
troops, was approaching  Santos, co-operating with an army that was marching to the
city,    The    naval     and    military    forces
ought     to      reach     Santos     today,     he
said, and proceed  at   once  to   the attack.
The   insurgent   commander   expects   that
Santos will   surrender   at   once.    Ouly the
insurgents believe the reports of the coming
attack on Santos.    The younger  officers of
the insurgent fleet  iu the harbor  are impatient for action.    They  urged  Admiral Da
Gama fiercely yesterday to fight the United
States fleet, and they may persuade him at
any time  to   bombard.   Rio   Janeiro.    The
foreign   fleets might no  prevent   the bom-
hajdui'iit in case two days1 uolic   should he
given, fur Rio with its forts ou the hills and its
caunon on the hea* h, is  not au op* n   oity.
The government Set  was   repnr h*1 off ihe
harbor las:   night aod   ihe   explain of   'lie
America  came   ashore to get   orders.    The
America may go Soulh before attacking the
insurgent fleet.    Many new cases of yellow
fever are reported here.  The deaths number
more than thirty daily.    The  health  of all
on   board   the   United  States   warships is
perfect.	
White and Indian Soldiers Fight.
Omaha, Neb., Feb. 2. - Bad blood has existed for aome time between the white and
Indian soldiers at Fort Omaha. Last night
they came together in a free fight, in which
stones and clubs were freely used, and as a
result halt a dozen Indians are now in the
hospital. The redskins gathered nearly all
their comrades, and, arming themselves
with tbe first things ��'��� hand, made a rush
on Kelcliemark's Minn i, just outside the
post. So far as is hi ������. u, only one white
soldier was hurt in thu melee. The guards
were called out aud the Indians driveu back
to their quart era.
Electricity at the Midwinter Fair.
San Francisco, F*���'>. 2. ��� Kverything is
in readiness fir, tha pi .id notion at tho exposition to-morrow eveumg of one of the most
beautiful scenes over witnessed in San Francisco. The experiment made on Thursday
evening in 'he incandescent outlining of I he
exposition buildings was thoroughly meces-
ful, and all the architectural beauties of ihe
group of industrial palaces will be emphasized
on this occasion. There willbe baud concerts
andspecial illuminations of the concessionaries Btruciurea. The electric towercannotyet
be illuminated, t*ut it will stand iu the
centre of the grand parallelogram of light
into which the central plaza will be turned.
Great progress has been made in the installation of exhibits during the past few days,
and visitors who have been waiting for
Saturday and Sunday to coma will find
everything much more complete than on the
opening day. There will undoubtedly be
large crowds iu attendance during tho day
as well as night. During the afternoon the
unveiling of Miss Hosmer's statue of Queen
Isabella, in the art palace will take place.
The " 49" mining oamp is making a

The speech of Lieut.-Colonel the Hon.
James l!>k r on International Bimetallism,
delicieied uy him iu the Legislative Assembly on Jan. 24, 1894, has been published by
request, and is beiug sold for 15 cents. The
motion, of which the speech is an eloquent
exposition, was as follows :
" That a humble address be piesented to
His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor, praying him to convey to Her Majesty's Most
Honorable Secietary ot State for the Colonies, through the Honorable the Secretary
of State for Canada, that, in the opinion of
this House, it is expedient that it should be
ordained by international agreement���1.
That gold and silver be legal tender to any
���.mount. 2. That the value of silver in
terms of gold be fixed. 3. That gold and
silver iu auy amounts be freely turned into
coin at State mints."
In his opening remarks the honorable gentleman quotes Daniel Webster as saying, in
reference to the evils following upon a faulty
monetary system���
" We have suffered more from this cause
than from any other cause or calamity. It
haB killed more men, it has pervaded and
corrupted the choicests interests of our
country more, and it has done more injustice thau even the arms and artifices of our
enemies."
Passing to the earlier modes of exchange,
he snys:
"In primitive ages there was no such
thing aa muue}, all tl'adu Uuujaetiuus were
carried on by a system of pure barter. That
is to say, if A had a commodity which he
did uol want, but which B wanted, and B
had another commodity which he did not
want, but which A wanted, then A and B
handed those commodities the one to the
other and so the bargain was completed.
But it is quite evident that the elements of
time aud circumstances must have entered
imo bucIi au arrangement to produce endless
inconvenience, and theJe is rather au amusing illustration of the inconvenience of pure
barter in modern days in the case of a certain French lady who was a celebrated
singer, and who, in making the tour of the
world, hapjH ii il to stop at one of the
Society Islands, where she was asked to
sing at a concert. She consented on condition that she should be paid one-third of the
receipts. Well, she sang, but when she
came to receive her remuneration she found
that it consisted of three pigs, 24 turkeys, 45
chickeus, 5,000 cocoanuts, and a quantity of
bananas aud other kinds of fruit; in fact,
she had iuadverteutly bartered her voice for
all 1 hese articles of food.
"Now the pigs had to be fed and they eat
up all the frui% bul the good lady could not
eat up all the pigs, s> she left the island a
sadder and wiser woman as to the inconveniences attending a pure system of barter.
"Oppressed by tne lucouveuieiices of barter the ear*y nations adopted certain media
of exchange according as custom or the law
<-f ibe msj u'ity impelled them, and we find
them using u'nvi ie Mulls, bits of brass and
iron and even bus of leather as money���in-
Wt ed leal her ni* ney was in use up to modern
i lines iu fur beat ing countries, and it had its
origin'in cutting out from a pelt a small
piece and handing ihe piece on as representative money so that the holder could afterwards claim the pelt by fitting the small
piece iuto the part of the whole from which
it had beeu cut. In fact lhe whole pelt and
the small piece of it performeu the same
tunctious as money that a gold reserve and
a bank uote do iu the preseut day. These
primitive media of exchange answered the
purpose of money iu a crude sort of a fashion so long as i hey circulated only where
custom had installed them, but no sooner
was any foreign trade attempted between
one country and the other ihan all the dif-
tiuul.ies of exchange became apparent. As
a consequence we find the early nations realized tbe necessity of having as media of
exchauge certain commodities which poB-
seseed intrinsic value aud they adopted cattle as money because there Wis �� general
demand for them. Now this has ...i interest
for us as there certain words iu tbe English
language which take their origin from that
source���(or instance, we ofieu apeak of a
pecuniary" advantage, pecuniary being de-
riv*. from the Latin word pt cu, signifying
Then agaiu the word "capital"���
whion is now so often in people's mouths,
but unfortunately so seldom in their pock-
its��� conies from the fact that iu the oarly
days a man's wealth was estimated per capita by the number of head of cattle which
he (.osseseed. Theu again the word "chattel" comes from the same source."
As to the required proper! ies iu exchange
media, the Ooiouel i el Is us:
"Those properties have beeu admirably
iletin d and described in modern limes by
Chevalier and Jevous, two of the ablest
writers on monetary science. They tell us
that money should possess : 1. Utility or
value. 2. Portability. 3, Iudestructabil-
ity���a most important property, so that it
may become a store of value. 4. Homogen-
lty. 5. Divisibility. 6. Stability of value
so as lo prevent fluctuations in exchange���
aud lastly, cognisibility���so that it may be
easily recognised as money."
Alter a running history of mouey iu its
different forms and phases, and the evils of
monometallism, Mr. Baker turns to British
Columbia.
We have borrowed gold at a low rate of
interest v, hich is payable in gold, therefore
if gold becomes appreciated the taxpayer
will have to pay just so much more interest
on our debt as gold may become appreciated.
Now let me explain myself. The interest
on our debts is payable iu gold aud that
gold has to come out of the revenue of ihe
Province and tho taxpayer has to supply the
(Continue**] on page two.) NANcYIMO, B. C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARI 3, 1894.
(Continued (rom p��K*E one.)      ^^^^
revenue with gold to pay the interest on
our debt in gold. But if gold should become
appreciated lo double its value the taxpayer would have to give double the amount
of commodities in order to buy the gold to
pay the taxes to provide the revenue with
gold to pay the interests of our debt in gold.
Therefore if gold becomes appreciated the
taxpayer will have to pay just so much
more interest on our debt as gold may become appreciated.
"On the other hand, if International Bimetallism became law, gold would be depreciated to its normal value, and the taxpayer would be benefited proportionately."
In answer to some of the monometalliBta'
objections, he says :
'��� One of the arguments used against International Bimetallism is that, it could not
be carried out in event of war, becausa the
agreement would then be broken. Now,
that iB a very foolish argument, because
there are already international agreements
of a very delicate character which are not
broken in event ol war. Witness, for instance, that of neutrality. But there is a
far better rea-ou why ths belligerent nations
would not break the binielallic agreement,
and that is, it would be utterly against their
interests to do so; iu fact, it would be financial ruin to them to do bo. Thus we find
the gold monometalliBta have to shift their
ground from point to point until at laBt
they get all huddled up into one corner and
exclaim with one voice, " Well, then, you
will never get England to agree to it." But
that ia simply assertion, and not argument,
and there is good reason to hope that England will agree. It is only recently that the
question has commenced to be understood,
and it is already getting a firm hold on the
public mind."
The hon. gentleman concludes his highly
valuable commentary on the most important
question of this generation by Baying:
"Every expression of opinion upon this
all important subject muat carry a certain
weight and I beg the House to realize that
it occupies the proud position of an integral
portion of the legislative mechanism of the
Great British Empire, auci as such we have
an undoubted right to express an abstract
opinion upon any question which affecta the
welfare of Bri ish subjects, but in this case
the area of welfare is enlarged; it not only
embraces the vital interests of the prospectors, the miners and the traders of this
fair Province, but it is so far reaching that
it touches the hem of humanity at large. I
therefore trust that, for once, we may
strike off the shackles of party faction, and
recognizing at least the modicum of power
for good which lays before us, we may unite
with one heart and one voice in supporting
the principles of the resolution which I now
have the honor of placing at the disposal of
the House."

TELEGRAPHIC   SUMMARY.
Auguste Vaillant, the anarchist who
threw a bomb iu the Chamber of Deputies
at Paris on Dec. 9i.h, will be executed
probably this morning.
A special from Americus, Ga., says that
Dr. J. B. Hinkle waa convicted there yeaterday of murder. The jury recommedded

The "Fancy Drive," one of the most important and attractive features of the Quebec carnival, took place on Thursday afternoon. The weather was favorable and the
streets in splendid condition. The procession was the most successful ever seen there.
It looks aa if the Knights of Labor belonging to the Canadian branch would aecede
from the general assembly. It is said to be
the intention of the officials of the order on
the Canadian side of the border to call a
conference and conaider the advisability of
establishing a general assembly in Canada.
The Quebec express of the Inter-Colonial
Railway, which should have arrived on
Wednesday, did not reach there until
noon ou Thursday. The delay was caused
by a collision at Richmond with a Canadian
Pacific engine. Considerable damage was
done to the rolling utock. No one was injured.
The London Daily Newt dncusscs at
length the discharge in bankruptcy gianied
to Michael Davitt on Tuesday. It was supposed that thia certificate would make Mr.
Davitt eligible for parliament, hut the News
reaches the conclusion that his discharge
will not remove the disqualification for a
parliamentary seat.
At, a meeting of the Currency Association
at Calcutta, the president declared himself
in favor of taxing imports of silver. He denounced English speculators, because, he
said, they were growing fat off India's misfortunes. The Association appointed a committee to draw up an address to the government concerning the difficulties of the present situation in India.
J. R. Soverign, General Master Workman
of the Knight? of Labor, arrived in Chicago
on Thursday. Of the recent aet back received by the Knights of Labor in their efforts to prevent the iBsue of bonds by Secretary Carlisle, he said: "Our fight to aecure
an injunction to prevent the new issue ia
not yet ended. We were defeated in our
endeavor to aecure a standing in court, but
we shall in all probability take an appeal,
and the Supreme C *urt may decide in our
favor."
The Brazilian minister at Montevideo received an official dispatch from Rio Janeiro
yesterday, which aaid only "Niotheroy los."
He cannot determine whether the telegram
refers to the town of Nictheroy, near Rio,
which has been ao long and stubbornly besieged by the insurgents, or to Peixoto's
newly purchased dynamite cruiser of that
name, which he bought in New York. The
minister wired back at once, asking for an
explanation, hut up to a late hour had received no reply.
Through his Minister of Foreign Affairs:
President Peixoto wires to the "New York
Herald" Admiral Benham's aotion toward
the revoltera ia highly gratifying to all loyal
Brazilians and to the establiahed government, as ahowing which aide haB the aym-
pathy of the United Statea. President
Peixoto haa prolonged the state of Biege in
Rio until the end of thia month, in the confident hope that the revolt will have ended
before the expiration of that period.
The peculations of James Anderson, of
Indiana, a well-connected lad, 18 yeara of
age, employed as a messenger in the Washington treasury vault8, proves more serious
than waa supposed. They amount to $794,
as far as has been ascertained, and the en
quiry is atill in progress. When the theft
waa first discovered it was supposed to
amount only to a few dollars, and at tho
request of the treasury officials, publication
of the fact waa suppr-ased.

GREAT GOOD   LUCK.
The Extraordinary Hecovory ot a Large
Package of -Honey.
It rarely happens that a bundle of
bank notes accidentally dropped in the
street remains for a matter of half an
hour iu a crowded thoroughfare without some one picking it up. Very luckily, however, for a young man employed
as a messenger for a firm uf London
borkers, this was the ease some time
ago, says the Manchester (Eng.) Courier.
The young man was hurrying
through a crowded street, when he let
fall a bundle of notes of the value of
forty-five thousand dollars, lie went
his way unaware of the fact; but half
an hour later having discovered his
loss he retraced his steps in a terribly-
excited state of mind, peering into
every nook and corner which seemed
likely to furnish a hiding place. Precisely at the spot where the valuable
packet had fallen there was a pineapple stall, and of the owner of the
same���an old woman���he inquired, in a
trembling voice, whether she had seen
anything of his lost treasure.
A lucky chance hud guided him to tho
right person. She had noticed a bunle
of papers that fell close to her stall; but
beiug busily engaged at the moment in
slicing up her pineapple for sale, she
had kicked the parcel into the gutter,
and, by good luck, in the gutter,
along with a quantity of street rubbish,
the messenger found the precious parcel, which had lain there unnoticed by
the crowd of pedestrians.
��� curious box *was recently found
amid the ruins of Pompeii. The box was

it waa found to be full of pomatum or

Bmell resembled somewhat that of the
ro-aea, but wus much moro fragrant

THE  WILSON TARIFF.
As wan announced in our issue of yester
day, the Wilson tariff bill has been passed by
the House of Representatives of the Ameri
can Congress, by a vote of 20*1 yeas to 140
nays. There was a very full house, only 13
members being absent out of a total of 3f>7.
Senate. What changes will be made in it
The bill has still to run the gauntlet of the
there, still remains to be seen. But the
general opinion seems to be that it will be
passed by the Senate substantially as it haB
left the House of Representatives.
The Wilson tariff is a very considerable
improvement on McKinley's high protection
tariff. The McKinley tariff charged
-duty of 25 cents a bushel on wheat; the
Wilson tarriff lowers this to 20 per cent. ad.
valorem. This will amount to 16 cents a
bushel when wheat in selling at SO ceuts.
Canada of course is not much interested in
selling wheat in 'he Stales, but the change
is an improvement on McKinley's prohibitive rate of duty on this staple. McKinley
placed a duty of 39 cents a bushel on
barley ; the Wilsen tariff reduces this
to 20 per tent, of the value of the
barley. This is of much more importance to
Canada than the reduction made in the duty
on wheat. It is also of much more importance to the American people themselves.
The barley grown in the States is not of
good quality; and American brewers, who
wished to brew good beer, had to buy Cana
dian barley for the purpose. There
will be again a great market for Canadian
barley in the United Slates under
the Wilson tariff. Assuming the average
price of barley to be 70 cents a bushel, the
reduction o' duty under the Wilson tariff,
as oompared with the McKinley tariff, will
be a little over one-half. McKinley placed
a duty of ��30 per head on horses worth Icbs
than $150 each, and 30 per cent, of their
value on those worth more than $150 each.
Thus under the McKinley tariff, on a horde
worth ��100, its Canadian owner hud tn pay
$30 before he could send it to the American
market, and on a horse worth ��200 the duty
charged was $60. Undei the Wilson tariff
the duty ohaaged in Mm former case Mil lm
$20 and latter ��40���t*uiit* high enough, inns'
Canadians will say, but still ft substantial
reduction.' Under lhe McKinley tariff the
duty on cattle more than one year old was
��10 per head; under the Wilson tariff the
puty will be 20 per cent, of their value.
Thus on a heifer worth ��30, the duty will
be ��(j instead of ��10 as charged undar the
McKinley tariff. The duty on wool under
the McKinley act was 11 to 12 cents per
pound on some grades, and from 30 to 50
per cent, on certain other grades. Under
the Wilson act all grades of wool are placed
on the free list. Furthermore that act
lowers the duty on imported sheep from
$1.50 per head to 20 per cent, advalorem.
Thus on a sheep worth ��4 the duty under
the Wilson act, will be SO cents, and on a
sheep worth ��2 only 40 cents. The duty of
2 centB a pound placed by McKinley on
mutton is entirely removed by the \\ ilson
act.
Similar reductions rif duty are made by
tho Wilson Act on other descriptions of
farm produce. On butler the duty is reduced from 7 cenU i er pound to 4 cents, on
cheese from fl cents per pound to 25 per
cent. Milk, eggs, Straw, apples, and broom
corn are placed on the free list. The duty
on hay is reduced from ��4 per ton to $2, ou
potatoes from 25 cents to 10 cents per
bushel. Bacon and hams, meats of alt kinds
prepared or preserved, not otherwise provided for, larrl and tallow are placed on the
free list. In short lhe opponents of the
Wilson tariff claim that it strips all farm
products of nearly every vestige of protection, and exposes the farmers of the Northern States to the almost unrestricted competition of Canadian farmers. Free raw
materials has been the motto of the Democrats
in reforming the McKinley tariff, and as a
result the duties on lead, copper, iron, coal,
salt, and lumber, as well as the duties on
agricultural produce, have either bpen abolished altogether or greatly reduced. From
a free trade point of view the Wilson tariff
is certainly a great improvement nn its predecessor. We anticipate a vast i:creese of
Canadian trade of all sorts with the Uilted
States under the Wilson tariff; and we trust
that the reductions now made in the duties
charged on most classes of imports to the
United States from Canada, will lin (ound
to conduce greatly to the prosperity of both
oountries.
A dispatch from Mansfield, Pennsylvania,
of Wednesday's date, says that ten of the
ringleaders of Saturday's riots were that
day arrested at Bowerhill. Among them
were several noted anarchists. The village
appears to be a hotbed of anarchy. In
every house inflammatory publications were
found. It is becoming plain that the anarchists were at the bottom of the outrages
committed at Bridgeville on Saturday, as
we said on Tuesday was likely to be the
case. There is no mistaking tho earmark of
the anarchists when ouce they begin to
rise. Their conduct at such times is always
marked by outrage and wanton des! ruction
of property.
Tiik I ORDS and the Gladstone Government are at loggerheads over the Parish
Coun :ils Bill. The Conservative majority
in the House of Lords has passed a Beries of
amendments to the bill, which the Marquis
of Rip 'in, speaking for the Government, has
told the Lords will not be. accepted by the
ministry. It now remains to be seen
whether the Lords will persevere in thoir
amendments, or allow the bill to pass as it
was sent up from the Commons. If the
Lords stand by their amendments, while the
Government refuses to accept I hem, the dispute can only be settled by an appeal to the
people in a general election. The Parish
Councils bill is not a good subject, from a
Conservative point of view, on which to
appeal to the people, but for that very
reason it may be chosen by Mr. Gladstone
as the best pretext that iB likely to offer
itself for demanding a dissolution and an
appeal to the people in a general election.
Thb threatened fight between the Ameri
cans and the insurgents at Rio appears not
to have come off. It would be satisfactory,
in the interests of commerce and also of the
people of Brazil itself, if the war in that
country were terminated; but it would not
be for the credit of the Americans to put
down the insurgents in the interests of the
dictator, Peixoto, who by all accounts is a
tyrant of the worst sort. It would be more
for the honor of the United States for tne
Cleveland administration to let the insurgents and Peixoto fight it out. A British
naval officer, who is returning from Rio on
leave of absence, is reported in a dispatch
from Lisbon as saying that the Insurgents
have plenty of money, but that Peixoto's
funds are low. If this statement is correct
the Insurgents may still succeed, as according to the dictum of Louis XIV., who had
plenty of experience in such matters, it is
the last guinea which wins in war, that is to
say, the side which still has some money on
hand when theii' opponents are cleaned out
always wins.
Mb. Joseph Chamberlain, who iB one of
the most vigorous speakers and boldest
political thinkers in England, a Liberal of
the Liberals,a Radical all his life, but a Radical who is loyal to England, struck the
right chord in a speech which he delivered
iu Birmingham on Monday evening. Mr.
Chamberlain declared his antagonism to the
new radicalism, which he said had abandoned the old radical principles and become
a policy of disintegration at home and disrepute abroad. He would be proud in the fu**,
ture to cull himself a Unionist, a title which
was far wider and nobler than Conservative
or Liberal, inasmuch as it included both.
He contended that there was a growing
need for a great national patriotic party,
which would not barter its conscience for
votes or betray the country's interests to
maintain itself in office. The attention
of Mr. G lulls'one and his friends
is respeoifully invited to this
last observation. It will be Mr. (Jiads'ini
lasting reproioh in h*anry that he beti*yod
England's interests in otder to keep himself
in office by help of the Irish Home Rulers,
whom he cannot but know are England's
bitter enemies. Mr. Cha.nberlain endorsed
the views set forth by Mr. Balfour in his
recent Bpeech at Manchester, in which he
urged the paramount importance of maintaining tho Btrength of the navy, and
pledged the cordial co-operation of the Opposition with the Government in its efforts
to strengthen the defences.

It seems that the Senate is not in favor
of Secretary Carlisle issuing bonds for a loan
of i*?.r>0,000,000 to meet current expenses, as
they term it. The Republican Senators
scored the Secretary heavily, and the Democratic Senators had not a word to say in his
favor, in the debate on the subject in the
Senate on Wednesday afternoon. The
Cleveland administration seems not to be
very popular with the Americans. The San
Francisco Chronicle of Sunday last remarks:
"Mr. Carlisle is about to attempt the
rather difficult taHk of filling a barrel without taking tho precaution tn stop up tho
spiggot. nolo. Ho purposes replenishing his
liolil reserve hy selling !*?r>0,000,000 of bonds,
nntl the wily New York bankerB are rapidly
presenting for redemption legal tender notes
in order to obtain the guld wherewith to
buy the bonds. From present appearances
there will be less gold in tho treasury after '
the $50,000,000 of bonds have been sold
than on the day Carlisle conceived his bril- I
liant scheme to increase the stock of yellow
metal."
But if Mr. Carlisle is attempting the difficult task of filling an empty barrel without
first stopping the spiggot hole, it was the
Republicans who emptied the barrel and
made the filling of it necessary. In this
matter it is vain for the Republicans, as
represented hy the pot, to call the Democrats, as represented by the kettle, bad
names. If the Democrats are in the mud
financially, it waB the Republicans who
placed them there by extravagance never
before paralleled in any country. Therefore
tha Republicans or their organs have no
right to blame the Democrats beoause the
funds in the United States treasury are
getting low. Secretary Carlisle is right in
stretching his authority a point or two to
replenish the treasury and maintain the
national credit.

WELLINGTON ITEMS.
The Good Templars meet to-night at their
usual place and time.
Mr, Harry Hamburger, manager of Mr.
Leiser's store at Union, came in on the noon
train today from Victoria.
In yesterday's issue we mentioned the
firm of "Hamburger & Leiser, late Jones k
Co.," which should have been "late Cooke
k Co."
Mr. Charley Axelson got ahead of the
boys by being quietly married a few days
ago. When discovered, however, he was
made another victim of the charivari cad
orgies.
Finding his present quarters too small
for a rapidly developing business, Mr. K.
Mermon is about to extensively enlarge his
store. Some handsome show-cases will be a
feature in 'he improvements.
THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL.
Victoria, Feb. 2.���[Special.] ���The Esqui
malt defeuce works are to bo proceeded with
in a very short time. To-day tenders were
called for the land and water transport of
the guns, armament aud muterial generally,
from the naval headquarters at
Esquimalt to the different sites of the
great guns, which will be stationed along a
considerable stretch of country, commanding the Straits and entrance to Esquimalt
harbor.
Though the steamer Miowera iB expected
to arrive here to-morrow from San Francisco, and the Esquimalt dock has been
fully prepared for her, it is not known
definitely whether sho will be fully repaired
here. The lowest hid made by San Francisco firms was nearly 8100,000, and the
work would take a well equipped ship yard
three months in finishing. The insurance
money was paid by Lloyd's agency at 'Frisco
last Monday, aud 'he ship wan theu ordered
to Victoria by ber owners.

International Involvement.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 2.���Secretary Herbert, after the cabinet meeting to-day, declined to make public the latest cable message received from Admiral Benham, but
repeated his assurance that it had no general
public interest. It is accordingly understood that the despatch involved a question
of international policy, which is the one
reservation which Mr. Herbert made in his
promise to give out all future despatches.

Amerioa Photographed.
The Photo America Publishing Company
of 407 Dearborn street, Chicago, is issuing
a new publication under the title of "America Photographed." It consists of a series
of handsome photographic reproductions of
the grandest scenery in America. The only
fault we can find with the pictures is that
they are not ou separate sheets suitable for
framing. The price is 50 cents per copy or
��20.00 for the year issued weekly.
A Printer's Union.
A preliminary meeting of the printers of
Nanaimo took place at Thk Telegram office on Thursday evening, for the purpose
of considering the advisability of forming a
Typographical Union in this city, there
having been no such organization for some
years past in Nanaiino. After considerable
discussion pro and con, it was unanimously
decided to proceed at once with the founding of a union. Messrs. Hackett, Lowery
and Chambers were appointed a committee
to carry out the arrangements.
Calodonian.Cluh Dance.
The Caledonian dance last evening had a
very large attendance, there beiug over 80
couples preseut. The management is seriously considering the necessiiy of obtaining
a larger hall for their fortnightly dances, as
the numbers that patronize this deservedly popular amusement increase at
every muster. On first entering the hall
one is surprised at the evident good feeling
existing between all present and also by the
variety of ages, represented, all the way
from staid matrons down to the earliest
stages of maidenhood, there being
one of the latter present who could
not have numbered more than six months.
Amongst the'gentlmen may be seen merchants, scholars, engineers, and all the different enterprises and trades of the town are
well represented. In the side room, adjoining the dance salon,mild gomes of cards aud
quiet tete a totes are carried on. the same
room also furnishing an excellent retreat for
couples desiring to carry on the luxury of a
flirtation. Though the ladies of course do
not come in lull evening dress, yet the
tasteful and pretty dresses worn, give a
most charming aBpect to the whole scene,
combined with the many pretty faces and
the graceful movements of the dancerB.

The Highest Authority in America.
Printers Ink, the highest newspaper authority in America, speaks thus of The
Daily Teleoram :
"Did you ever hear of a place called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Viotoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of Thi Daily
Telegram, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of his paper, aud when
you obtain it * ompare it with your home
production. Go down and talk with the
publisher about it 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
bis paper as free from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
may be learned from Nanaimo,"

"How haa Lo Barron carried himself
during your examinations, which hemust
know would end in the discovery of his
fraudulent courso?"
"���With a hardihood and indifferenoe
that have been very painful to mo. But
within the hist week, as his duplicity became more fully revealed, he haa broken
down completely."
"Now that you know :.ll," aaid Mra.
Newton, "surely he has no*, the effrontery
to urge longer delay in closing the business.
"Aht He is half frantic All bis
hopes and courage are crushed, and he
dreads the revelations which must be
made to his family more than death or
dishonor."
"Has his wife thus far received no intimation of the storm that is gathering
about her?"
"iome, I imagine. But before this the
wretched woman must have been told
the whole. When he became satisfied
that the revelation could no longer be
delayed, I took the responsibility of making our determination public and urged
him to hasten to Roseville before the
tidings pottld reach his family through
general gossip, nnd before this the tale is
told. If Mrs. Le Barron has any love or
prudence left, she must prove it now, for
Bhe cannot look upon her husband without realizing that his life and reason are
both in danger."
"There is little hope for him if bis
safety depends at all upon his wife's gentleness or prudeuce," said George. "She
love* nothing but her own self. Yon
would be shocked could you know how
shamefully her family have always been
neglected and tormented whenever their
wishes interfered at all with her selfish
gratification."
"Why, Oeorger t thought she loved
her children passionately and indulged
them most injudiciously. But for yeara
I have known very little of them."
���^STou know, dear mother, your children are often thrown into their society,
and etiquette has made an occasional call
neoessary, although tha atmua^hwe has
ueen very distasteful to us, ana ilms we
have of necoSbity known moro of them
than you could. Oh, mother, it just occurs to me that on returning from our
ride thia afternoon I loft Lillian and Rose
to call at the Le Earrons. I had no heart
to accompany them, knowing oa I did of
father's anxieties, and now I fear they
will meet with a stormy reception."
"Oh, my son, I am very sorry. Should
they learn of this misfortune there, it
will be a rude shock for our dear girlB."
"I am inexpressibly grioved," said the
father. "We could have mado the rev*.
elation so much easier. I have these
dear onea very near my heart of late. To
them life has been thus far only sunshine.
How will they endure the shadows?"
"Lillian is naturally quiet and self
possessed, but Rose all life and joyous***
ness."
"Oh, fatherl Yon do not yet know
our Rose if you fear for her," said George
earnestly. "I do not believe that I cherish warmer affection for one sister than
the other. Neither will repine, I am
confident, but in times of trial of whatever nature little Rode will teach us all.
Her smile will be just as gloilous, her
sweet voice be heard in cheerful carols
as fresli nnd hopeful and hope giving in
a lonely cottage aa in princely parlor. Is
it not so, mother?"
"Yes, my son. You judge correctly.
Our girls, my dear husband, are brave
spirits nnd will not murmur at any
change that brings no reproach and
threatens no disunion, but Rose seems
gifted with an abundant overflow of
cheerful courage that is peculiarlyinspi-
rating to ull who nre brought within the
sphere of her influence, nnd which will
ever be to her tho strongest ussurauce of
peace and happiness under all circumstances."
"But, my dear Lucy, it is not simply
the effect of a change in our pecuniary
state or social position may have on our
daughters that has caused me so muoh
anxiety. On those points you und George
cannot trust them more fully than I do.
But you cannot both havo forgotten that
there aro other ways in which our misfortune may imperil their pence of mind.
They have given their hup;>iness into
other hands than ours."
"You refer of courso to Dunbar and
Grenville. Why, my dear. Eustace has
so grown up with OUT children, and Lilly
and he havo so Ions thought and felt in
unison that I would as soon expect our
boy hero would shrink from tho trial."
"No, dear: I have no fears for Lillian's
peace, but a slight and most natural misgiving about Grenville. I wisli Dunbar
were hero for her own sake more than
fears for his constancy."
"Ah, now you touch the one fear that
has often made me tremble of late, aud
which all this day I have weakly tried to
banish. Grenville'a faults lie mosi'.y in
his pride and aristocratic notions, but he
haa truly a loving heart, and for our
child I am confident his affection is very
deep and pure; Ou such love, you know,
I havo over felt it safe to lean trustingly. If he should fail our dai ling, sho has
given him so truly the full love of her
intenso nature, how could she bear it?"
And tho mother's voice was full of fear.
George bad listened to his parents' conversation wiih tightly folded arms and
compressed lips, but now stepping quickly to his mother's side ho laid a hand hvr-
ingly on her shoulder nnd saidi
"Airain. I suv. mv dear parents, have
WOkm
no fear for our noble girls. Lilly's happiness is in safe keeping. I would pledge
my lifo for Eustace's truth. He will, I
t'.ink, be here tonight. As for Grenville"���he hesitated, and his eyes became
almost fierce. "Our Rose's danger lies
in another direction than the loss of our
poor wealth."
"I do r.ot understand you, my son."
"You know, father, sinco our land haa
boon so full of bitterness you have been
fearful that this wild election Btl'ife might
lead to civil v.-;.r. I have listened with
deferenco toyourmaturer judgsieut, but
even while it forced itself upon mo as a
correct idea my heart did not recognize
it us a danger that could really befall
C3, Tho United Ctates at war wiih oaoh
other! It truly seemed absurd and im-
! possible. But tho last few weeks have
brought the idea before mo with a fear
that seems liko certainty. And, father,
should war como upon us, Grenville is
a soutlirrne*:*. though educuti.'."i at the
north, uud this is whe-t fills mo with apprehension for my sister. Ho has not oei :i
frank with us. Hia feelings are with the
south."
"Why have you never told us thia before?" said Mr. Newton, with deep emotion.
"Because, although it is some weeks
since this suspicion has haunted me. I
had not been cure beyond a doubt till
within two days. Why, it is only lust
Snbbi'th evening we were all expressing
themo^t decided Union sentiment, Ro:,e,
the dnrli:>r. you will remember, wns the
most earnest and enthusiastic union.; us,
and Grenville listened and replied to hqy
with an interest apparently so trr.o, with
no shadow of dissent, that I reproached
myself for cherishinguhchnritr.blofears.
Eut ti.e deceiver," cried the yonng man,
while tho veins or hjs flushed browslood
out like knotted (lords; "'let Rose know
with ( 'tainty but half what 1 have
learned, even since I parted iv-.tv.i her but
a few hours since, that ho is linked with
the south and will 6triko hands with her
in case of war���she will cast him from
her at once."
"Yes. my son, and break her heart in
doing it."
"No, mother. I hardly think that she
will be' broken in spirit upon a question
that divides the affections of so many.
She is extremely enthusiastic in her
viewB upon this matter, but her true
heart was given to what Bhe believed to
be* real solid worth. Wh: n she finds it
was but a phantom, she may suffer for a
time, but fear not���she will bear it
bravely and como out of the fiery furnace unharmed."
"This grieves me cruelly," said Mr.
Newton. "How insignificant are all
other troubles compared with this.
Anxiety for your parents and bearing
with you thia grievous knowledge of
your sister's coming trial was heavy
burden, for your young heart to carry,
my son."
"Did I not tell you, Edward  tbat
through God's blessings ovr boys were
jjrov.'ing up towers of strength for our
later years? And shall we n*.>i trust our
jirl in o;.r Father's haniUi*"
"We^will, my door wife. But before
our dar.glili rs' return lot us o;*ch understand that this fear for Eoee i..r.*t ].' ir.n-
spoken for the present. Wo v.i'.l not ;.u-
tioipate the trial, Grenville will dor.bt-
less bo with us this ev*-i:ing nnd innst be
present nt our deliberations, 1 much
prefer that his own words or acts should
reveal him to our child. Let us drop
fids painful subject or we shall have no
power to control our fears when ve
meet them. Tho certain and knov.-n
trouble should havo our attention just
now, and ns you wisely counsel, dear
wife, we will try to leave our children
und their future in our Maker's hands."
They sat silent a few moments, when
George, turning to his father, said:
"Havo you yet been able to form any
plans for our future?"
"Nothing definite of oourse. For the
last three mowhu the probable termination of our affairs hus iieencou tautly on
my mind, and naturally sch<m* s for our
coming efforts have frequently arisen and
us often been rejected. Wh( *.: all is i om-
pletely Bottled, if I am not groul ly mistaken, we may hope ti.ere will bo a surplus left us for a comfortable beginning,
but how we must descend in a pecuniary
sonso wo cannot yet foresee.
"Legally we might leave this good
mother a Rreat abundance for the continuance of her pr< font style, or something very nearly like it, and she would
doubtless allow us to have a homo with
her while wo were building up a new
foundation. But she has some curious,
eld fashioned notions about cleaving to
husband and children and sharing all
deprivations with them, and I cannot say
that I feel in tho mood to resist her lov-
ing judgment. Eut when we are all together tiiis evening we must havo a full
and free consultation. Whutever arrangement can be matured that will best
employ your different tastes and at the
sumo time be most conducive to the general good of all will, I know, be your governing motive rather than any selfish
gratification."
"Thanks, father; I think you So not
judge mo incorrectly. I am conscious of
no wish bat permission to aid in making
t his change as little harassing and pain-
fhl to my parents, brothers and sisters
as possible. For myself, as long as no
dishonor can rest upon our name, I feel
no uneasiness���but there is tb^oorriage."

"ODDS   AND   ENDS."
A bhort Story, by   loan & Seott.
Duriog the month of February we are always busy taking stock, and naturally come across a large number of Odds
and Ends. Now you know yourself���or at least most p ople know���that it DOE-> NOT PAY to carry goods over from
one season to another. You see, those goods that l^y on the shelves frt m year to year, until some of them are almost
old enough to vote, are eating themselves up in interest, and interest is one of those things that increase at a most alarming rate, especially if you are not watching it pretty close.
Now, this is what we are going to do.   Commencing T ursday, February 1st, we shall institute an immense Remnant
and Oddment Sale, and shall surprise everybody by the insinuating manner in which we shall throw stuff out over our
counters and tables. You can't but admit that we have gven you some big surprises, one way and another, in the past
year.   But THIS TIME we shall cause the most incredu ous to exclaim, "Well, I don't see how they can do it."
Remember, this Sale is only for February, and as there are only 24 working days in that month, you will require to
get around about every day while it last s, so a3 to reap the full benefit.

near tlie Coukiin residence, and tlie night of
the crime, was standing outside of the cigar
store next to the stairway when he saw l)r.
Cronin and a strange man cume down and
enter a buggy. He swore positively that
the horse was speckled gray in color and
had dark legs. He went to the dime
museum where the horse was on exhibition,
and was sure it was uot the same which
drove the doctor away. The two knives

lin as exactly like those which belonged to
Doctor Cronin, re appeared before the jury
