Corbett Says He Is In Good Form.
New York, Nov. 16.���Jas. J. Corbett,
expressed himself to-day ai being well
pleased with Manager Wm. A. Brady's
work, in closing matters with Mitchell. "I
was afraid all along that Mitchell would
squirm out of fighting," said the Californian,
"Hut now it looks as though there was no
loophole left for him to crawl through."
When asked how he felt, Corbett replied "I
never waB in such condition in my life as 1
am in at present. My health is perfect;
I am as bird as a rook ; stronger than
at any of my previous fights and weight
194 pounds. 1 he fact is t hot I am in such
excellent condition and fine spirits that I
have concluded to rest a week or two to
keep from growing stale from too much training. 	
The Union Paoific.
Boston, Mass., Nov. 16.���Union Pacifio
officials say tint while two additional receivers were not needed, the gentlemen selected are very satisfactory to them. Their
appointment does not, however, signify
anything whatever looking to the future
control of the property by the Government,
nor would such a course be in accord with
the policy of the administration. The
matter of compensation for the receivers is
something yet to be fixed. It will undoubtedly be a regular annual salary, and not a
per centage of the business. Recent advices
irom the Northwest indicate very little improvement in the company's business in that
section, but some improvement is showing
on other portions of the system.
Republicans Will Meet In a Month.
New York, Nov. 16.���The presence in
the city of several prominent members of
the Republican National Committee, and
other Republican politicians from various
sections of the country, gave rise to a report that there was to be a conference of
these men on the political situation to-day
or to-morrow. Such a conference was contemplated several days ago and it was expected that it would be held to-morrow, but
the inability of several members of the committee to attend caused a postponement.
The distinguished Republicans who are in
the city to-day are here to attend the marriage of the daughter of
Stephen B. Elkins. Among those who
attended were national committeemen Jos.
Mauley, of Maine; Garrett Hobart, of New
J-rsey; Richard Kerfs, of Missouri; Jas. A.
Clarkson, of Iowa, and Charles Emery
Smith, of Philadelphia. Mr. Hobart waa
seen this morning and Baid there was no political conference of any kind. He said that
Chairman Thos. B. Carter would probably
cad a meeting of the Republican National
Committee in about a month. Until then,
he said, there would be no meeting or conference of members of the committee.
Emmin Pasha's Murderer Capturod.
BRUSSELS, Nov. 16 ���Mail despatches
from the Congo Free state have brought the
details of Capt, D. Hanis' victories over the
Arabs at Nyangive, aud Kansongo, some
months ago. The Arabs had entrenched
themselves along the Congo and numbered
the Belgians twenty to one. Nevertheless
after a bloody fight, the Belgians carried
the Arab positions. Many Arabs were
killed and wounded and 8,000 were taken
prisoners. The fugitive Arabs tried to
cross the Lualabea some distance
southeast of Nyangive. Hundreds were
drowned and the rent retroated in all directions. Letters found upon the prisoners
showed that the Arabs had planned to expel the Europeans from the whole Congo
rogion. Captain Pouthier, after capturing
Kibundu half way between Stanley Falls
and Kibaribr, drove the Arabs across the
country. The Europeans made thousands
of prisoners and seized 1,200 rifles. Among
the prisoners were twenty-five Arab ohiefs,
one of whom is Abido Ben, who killed
Emin Pasha in October 1892, in the
North eastern part of the Congo Free State.
The murderer was courtmartialed soon
after having been identified. The story ot
Emiu's death as reported last September, is
col tinned by the despatches received to-day.
The only survivors were his Zanzibarite
mistress and her child Monsonna. The
Arabs spared the boy in the expectation
that if endowed with his fathers brains
and energy, he might be trained to be a
great leader. AU of Emm's latest papers
were received to-day and were delivered to King Leopold. The leaders
of the Belgians in the Congo Free
State, say that nearly all the children of the
Arab ohieftians in the Congo region have
bow captured.

Lexington, Ky.,Nov. 16���Fiank Scearoe,

nets man until a short time ago, when it

day of January, 1894, the day set for my
trial. 1) i not bother about me, I will keep
my woid.    (Signed) F. P. Scearce."
Postponed Indefinitely.
Washington, D. C, Nov. 16.���Late today it was decided to postpone the meeting
of the majority of the members of the ways
and means committee indefinetly. Bourke
Cochran, of New York, who has been telegraphed for, had not arrived and Mr. By-
iiuni, of Indiana, was unexpectedly called
out of the city last night, Both gentlemen
will be present to morrow, but further
action will depend upon their movements.
Chairman Wilaon said this afternoon, "we
will have work for all tbe majority members
from now on; sub-committees are about
ready to report. What day we will get together I caanot say, as everything depends
upon all the members being present.

Pardoned by Cleveland.
San Francisco, Cal., Nov. 16.���To-day

Washington the pardon granted by President Cleveland to Frederick Lupp, who was
cnnvic.ed with Cave Deering and Mate
O'Brien, of the steamer Louia Olson, on a
charge of attempting to smuggle opium and
Chinese and other goods in ihe latter part
of last year. Lupp was sentenced to one
year's imprisonment in Alameda county jail

ago he succeeded in preventing an outbreak
of prisoners at that place, aud placed his
life in jeopardy to save that of the warden.

Washington authoiities and the President
pardoned him.
Official Denial.
Rome, Nov. 16 ���An official denial has
been issued concerning the report that
Kalnoky has como to Italy to arrange a
maniugc between the Italian Crown Prince
and an Austrian Archduchess. It is understood that, his visit relates to the situation
in the Mediterranean since the Russian
fleet has b- en established there.
RirBans Threatened   With  the   Sultan's
Curse.
Madrid, Nov. 16.���"The United Press
correspondent at Melilla te!egrsphed early
this morning: "Yesterday there was little
fighting both day and night. There were
only small skirmishes between the Riffians
and the Convoys cr rying provisions to the
forts near the hostile trenches." Part of
the Spanish squadron haa been ordered to
proceed at oiue to Tangier.
The Spiiiish government received to-day
Sultan MuUy Hassan's reply to its communication concerning the attacks of the Rif-
fiaus upon Melilla. The Sdltan declares his
friendship for Spain, ami his eagerness to
settle the existing trouble and remove every
difficulty between Morocco and Spain. He
hus sent his brother Mulay Araaff, he says,
with a large forco of horteu'en to thei bouu-
dary of the Ritliau territory to advise the
Irucement or abandonment of their hostile
attitude and allow the Spioilb forts lobe
built. The Sultan has ordered the Rirliaa
governor to assist Mulay Aiaalf, aud cooperate with him in pacifying the tribesmen. The Sultan does not mention the
indemnity which the Spanish Government
requires for the expenses of Mobilising
troops and sending men and materials to
Melilla. In his reply he haa sent a copy
of the circular which be has sent to the
Riffian Governors reminding them that
Spain has the right to build forts in the
neighborhood of Melilla, aa he himself
bought the land and presented it to the
fpanish Government. The circular also
threatens the R ffians with the Sultans
curse and with dire punishment in case they
disobey him.
Causes Great Alarm.
Marselues, Nov. 16.���The alarm oaused
by tbe explosion ii evident everywhere
this evening. Theatres and music halls are
nearly empty as everybody fears that more
explosions have been planned by the Anarchists, The cafes are deserted and the
number of arrivalsat tho hotels has declined
noticeably. The police have continued all
day their search of houses and apartments
occupied by Anarchiata and auspecta.
Much Anarchist literature haa been aeized.
In one house the police found a large
quantity of handbilla calling upon the people
to raise against the Bourgeois authorities.
It is reported that a considerable quantity
of explosives was found in an anarchist
dwelling thia evening. Among forty men
who have been arrested are twelve Italians.
The polios of tbe entire French Rivera art

THE   FINANCIAL WORLD.
New York, Nov. 16 ���Money '-all has
been easy ranging from 1 to iji M ima *t
li and closing offered at IJ. Tne transact ��
ions at the stock exchange were even lees
than yesterday amounting to only 176,913
shares of lieted aud unlisted stooks. At the
opening there was quite a little demand for
the prominent issues and a Blight advance
followed. The market ruled strong, until
after midday, when general Electric suddenly broke 3J to 38. The reason assigned in
the room for the break waa the closing out
of a loan in which the stock figured as collateral. This weakened the market especially for Manhattan and Western Union, the
former having sold down to 125 and the
latter to 86J. Near the close, however, a
general rally of $ to 1 per cent, took place.
General Electric leading, the market left off
firm.

Will Protect American Interests.
Denver, Colo., Nov. 16.���Gen. McCook,
Commander of the Department of Colorado,
has ordered all troops under hia command to
proceed to the scene of trouble in Mexico,
These conaiat of two troops of cavalry,
which have been engaged at Camp construction work and two troops at Fort Bayard,
who were ordered out laat night. The
troops from Fort Bayard will march to Wilcox station where they will board cars and
bo tranaportcd to Doming reaching there
sometime to-night, where further instructions will be given. "In all events" said
Gen. McCook, "They will be instructed to guard American interests and prevent any violation
of nutrality laws. Aa to the extent of the
trouble I have a despatce from Col. Blisa,
Assistant Adjutant General of the Dept. of
Colorado, who is at Fort Bayard, which
states that over one hundred Mexican revolutionists have taken Palomas, and they
are taking horses and arms from American
citizens. Aid haa beeu a-ked by theae
Americana to protect their interes'a on thia
side of the line. Theappeal to Col. Bliss was
signed by W, D. Duke, minager of the
Hagen and Hurst cattle ranch owning forty
thousand acres in C'uihu irhua and an equal
amount on this side of the Mexican border.
Mr. Duke,a statements can be relied  upon."
A Fast Despatch Boat to Honolulu.
Washington, D. G, Nov. 16.���The great
importance of events In Hawaii, affecting
American interests and the inadequate
meaoa of transmitting official information by
way of steamers of commercial lines, sailing
at long intervals subject to change haa led
to a discussion in Naval Circles aa to the
possibility of improving the methods of communication. The fact is recalled that the
Naval Office Act of 1890 conUined an item
of an appropriation of $350,000 for the construction of a torpedo oruiser about 750 tons
measurement, having the extraordinary
speed of 23 knots per hour. At present there
ia no vessel of thia type on the Naval list, although European Governments possess several
of them. The main purpose, as the name
indicates ia to pursue and capture the small
torpedo boats that make it unsafe for hostile fleets to anchor near the coast, but they
also serve a usefulpurposeaa dispatch vessels
and with their great speed and comparatively large coal capacity, they are admirably adapted to this purpose. At present
there is but one dispatch vessel in the
United States Navy and thst is the Dolphin,
a fast enough vessel at the date of her construction, but in these daya of fast
vessels, totally unsuitable for such
a purpoae. In the absence of the
much desired cable from San Francisco,
to Honolulu, the necessity of a torpedo
cruiser stationed on tbe Pacific coast cannot
be questioned. It may be that an additional
appropriation of $100,000 will be necessary
to make the total appropriation large enough
to defray the cost of the construction of the
ship, and if Secretary Herbert concludes to
build her, the Department would be able to
send a despatch to Haws ii in about four
days from San Francisco.
Progress of the Revolution.
El Paso, Tex., Nov. 16.���Information
from the refugees now coming in front Palomas ia to the effeot that a small detachment of the revolutionists remains there,
while another small detachment lna taken
charge of Ascension. The main body are
now supposed to be at Coiralits, but the
reported capture of that place oannot be
confirmed, oa account of its distance from
telegraph lines. The refugees say the roads
for one hundred miles sooth are in the possess on of the rebels, which gives them a
complete knowledge of the app>i aoh of fed
eral troops, against, whom they are carrying
on gueriHa warfare. The federal troops are
expected at Ascension to-morrow. Tho
revolutionists are evidently preparing to
lead the Feneral troops into a trap, whioh
becomes plain from the fact that the main
body of the revolutionists have beeu seen
but once, that occasion being when they
took poaaeasion of Ascension sixty miles
south of Palomas a few days ago. They
gave friends there to understand when
questioned on the subject that they would
have no trouble at Coiralits, aa most of the
Paladae (laborers) there had signified their
willingness to join the revolutionary standard and nearly double their force. General
Neris the leader of the revolutionary
forces, in the State of Guerrero,
has gone further south and has under his
command some 13,000 men. Though they
are poorly equipped official organs of the
revolutionists published along the borders
state that the re!*:Is will aoon begin operations on the southern border on a larger
scale than last year. These conceited outbreaks all over the country are expected to
lead to a general uprising. Proclamations
issued by revolutionists are to the effeot that
the Government is obtaining possession of
all tbe land in the Republic and that in the
end their country will be lost to them,
that President Diaz is dictator snd that he
and his miniona are beinS enriched at the
expense of his countrymen.

THE BOER CHIEFTAIN.
Creaeral Joubert the South African DBMS
Commander.
This is the picture of the stern, not to aa)
Ugly, Dutch leader of meu who whipped ths
English in the Transvaal difficulties a few
year* ago, and who is in England now, di��
cussing English South African projects in a
spirit which indicates that ho may yet be engaged iu more battles with English's arnlie��.
The English are pushing into Swaziland,
where gold ia said to have Peon discovered
in paying quantities. Of course they con-
tenrr'"'" annexation.
General Joubert declares frankly, in Ena>
land, the sentiments of hia nation, as follows:
"The Government of the South African Republic never could concede that the Swaziesj,
always friendly to the republic, should lose
their independence, and that a country situated within the uatural geographical frontiers of tho republic cnuld come into ths
hands of any other government than that of
the South African Republic. And I am
thoroughly convinced that every right-minded aud intelligent Englishman will be of tha
same opinion if only the real facta of the cast
aire made clear to him."
This means that the Boers will fight if England tries to absorb Swaziland.
General Joubert looks warlike enough to
make the English remember their former dis��
astera, and to think twice before they tackls
him.
BISMARCK A8 AN ORATOR.
A Hesitating Speaker, Hut a Forcible One
Hia Beligieus Views.
Bismarck lacks some of tho qualities which
are considered almost indispensable) to an
orator. He not only speaks slowly, he actual*
ly stops���at tho beginning of his speeches,
at least���at every third or fourth word; one
might suppose he had to overcome sotnj
organic difficulty In pronouncing his words.
He sways himself gontly backwards and for
���wards, he twirls his thumbs, and from tirad
to time he looks at a scrap of paper upo.i
which be has put dowu notes before speaking. To one who did not know him well he
would cer.alnly appear to be embarrassed-
nay, even intimidated. But this is uot tha
case. He takes due account of those who ui'fi
listening to hint, but ho ia probably loss disturbed by their presence than auy other public:
apeaker. He puis heart and soul into hil
work, he wants to say all he thinks ab .nit the
question, aud ho does not much care whether
this way of speaking is pleasant or not. Wheu
he comes to a stop his auditors feel that after
all they have heard something wort listening
to, aud thatcvory word Bismarck has used,
aud which be has taken ao much pains to limi,
was the right one
BEARING DIRECTLY ON THE QUESTION.
Somebody interrupts him; he does not retort quick as lightning, but after a few
seconds��� the time for weighing what he had
just heard���there comes a crushing replj
which falls heavily on the interrupter, aud
not infrequently raises a laugh at his expanse.
After a while he warms to his work, and the
conclusion of some of his speeches is very
good, even fr^m an exclusively oratorical
point of view. The greater part of what ho
has said in debate reads well; it is full of
sound common sense ami logic, and it is utterly free from high-sounding, empty phrasss.
If what Bismarck says were not good and
forcible, no oue would attend to him; but
generally what bo says appears from ths
first so weighty that
TH0UG1T HE SPEAKS BADLY/,
there ia no orator more attentively listens 1
(Ol Aud this wns tbe case even before hs
bocamo a great man. A very striking els-
mept in tho constitution of Prince Bismarck is
his deep religiousness. He owns a God othei
than hin.self, ami pays him the tribute ol
sincere and heartfelt worship. According tc
him, life would uot be worth living if it wom
not for tho hope cf an ezistsnee beyond the
tomb. Hia belief in God is the keystone ol
all his life. In 1873, in a parliamentary de
bate, he referred to an extract from a speech
delivered by him iu 1840, in which he hi'
Maintained that "a coi tain measure of posi
tiv�� Christianity is necessary to the common
man iu order to prevent him from becoming
dangerous in society." He aaid: "Whatever
in my former utteranoes may have applied to
a living profession���to a profession of
LIVING CIIUMTIAX FAITH.
I confess quito openly to-day, nnd I do
not flinch from making this profession publio
ly or iu my own house, at nuy nud every
time. But it is precisely my living evangelical Christian faith which imposes tip m ma
the obligation to protect in every way tilt
high office confided to me in the country ot
my birth, to serve which God created me,"
In tbe midst of the Franco-Gorniaa war hs
expressod himself very emphatically iu tho
same sense: "if I were not a Christian 1
would not continue to serve the King another hour. . . Why should I incessantly
worry myself and labor iu this yvorld, exposing myself to embarrassments, annoyances, and evil treatment, it I tli I no fee!
bound to do my duty on behalf of God! Did
I not believe in a divino ordinance which ha(
destined this German nation to becomo good
and great, I have never taken to thy diplomatic trade, or having done so, I would Ion i
aiiu'o have tukeu it up, I know not whe.ico I
derive my sense of duty, if uot from God.
Orders und titles have no charms for me; 1
Orally believe iaa Life after Death."
English rose growers are using blooo.
���enure for their vines with much success,

into it four ounces of muriatic acid and four
ounces of proti i -sulphate of iron, previously

the soil over the roots of eaoh row bush.

VARYING THE RANGE.
A Mew  Shell That Can be  Adjusted   to
Any Distance.
NE of tbe most recent
discoveries of the gun-
makers is a mothod for
increasing the range of
any gun from forty
yards or so to ono hundred and fifty yards, at
will. Most sportsmen
understand that by
varying the number
and position of tbe
* ���^-*'g~ wads   iu   a cartridge
they can cause the shot to spread wide or to
shoot close with almost any gun, but beyond that few have any definite idea of bow
It is to be done.
SHt\.iCQ<*?l&,��
THS SUItAPNKLt, SHELL.
Tne new device is known as the Slirnpnoll
���hell, and consists of a brass ball, slightlj
smaller than the bore of the gun, which is
divided into halves, each half being fitted
with two small flanges, each flange having ���
tiny hole in it, through which a steel wire
can be passed. Tbe shell is filled with any
size of shut desired, and the wire being piss-
ad through tho holes, the halves are held
together, making a solid ball. At the
bottom end of the shell a thick felt wad is
fitted of the she to fit tho bore of tho guu.
Tbe cartridge is loaded with powder iu the
usual way, with tbe usual wads, and on the
top of these the Slirnpnoll shell is forced
down so that the wad at tho bottom of tho
wire comes next to the wads over tho
powder and the brass shell lies snug within tbe cartridge. When the guu is fired
the wnd fits the barrel and prevents auy escape of gas, and ao leaves the muzzl; behind
the shell. Aa it strikes tbe air the wind
catches the edges of the wad, which is
slightly larger than the circumference of
the shell, and so draws the wire slowly out
and sets free the two halves ot the shell,
when the shot spreads as if just leaving the
muzzle of the gun. With this equipment 1
have shot curlews at a distance of 147 yards
with an ordinary 15-bore gun, of which tho
average range may be said to be fifty to sixty
yards. By cutting the wire with a pair of
sharp nippers (being careful not to leave
any rough overhanging eelges to catch in
the small flange holes) the spread of tbe
shot can Ire made to take plnco at almost any
distance, as the shorter the wire the sooner
it is withdrawn by the force of the wind ou
the wail, and the shorter tho rang > at which
tho shot is liberated.
Iu case ono unexpectedly meets bear or
other large game, the wire can bu bent over
tbe brass shell by tue lingers in an instant,
so that th.'shot-shell bee mus a solid bullet,
with an accurate doad-lino range of eighty
yards. They are made to fit four, eight,
ten, twelve or sixteen-bore guns, and are
imported from Edinburgh.
The future great tea-producing region ol
the world is believed to be South Africa.

The next heir, iu the legitimate oreler of

VICTORIA BOARD  OF
POST.
TRADE RE-
The Victoria Board of Trade or, as its
members are pleased to style themselves the
British Columbia Board of Trade, "e
about the month of August last,
issued its annual report. It ia handsomely
printed and contains a great deal of matter
dealing chiefly with the interests of Victoria.
The various public improvements made iu
Victoria and vicinity during the past year
are referred to as well aa contemplatad
works in the way of manufactures and public works of various kinds. All thia ia very
good in its way but unfortunately the value
of the report for sending abroad so far as
the Province at largo is concerned haa been
greatly destroyed by the narrow and we
might say jealous spirit displayed iu its
compiliation which is especially objectionable from the fact that the report is repre
sented as coming from a 1'roviucial organ
ization i. e. the "British Columbia Board of
Trade."
Amongst other matters tho report refers
to the manufacture of cement  88 follows:���
"Highly satisfactory tests have been
made which demonstrate fully that the
material for tho manufacture of excellent
Portland cement exis's here in large ejuau
titiea. The limited demand for this article
and the low rates of freight now prevailing
from the United Kingdom may retard the
successful operation of this industry, but it
forms the baaia of modern street paving
and in view of the fact that some of our
cities coutemplate paving their thorougfarcs,
a demand will probably be created for this
article which will warrant the establishment
of extensive cement works."
Had the gentlemen responsible for the
foregoing taken the pains to inform
themselves about what is going on outside of
the City of Victoria they would have discovered that a cement works waa in
operation in the City of Vancouver and that
the Terminal City not only "coutemplate
paving their thoroughfares" but was at
the time paving their principal thoroughfarea with a cement foundation covered
with bituminous rock.
The complaint regarding the Telegraph
service is unpatriotic aud ill-considered. If
we are to become agreatcouutry wemustrely
on our own resources aud endeavor to make
better thoselinua of communication which are
an absolute necessity in tlio development of
our trade and commerce. When tie gent!e>
men responsible for the compiliation of the
Biitieh Columbia Boaid of Trade Report say
there ia a "unanimous desire to have au alternative telegraph line with the United
Statea we think they are miataken in their
estimate cf public opinion on thia question
at least. We believe the people of this
Province would prefer to see any increased
expenditures in thia direction devoted to
making more perfect our preeeut linea and
thereby assist in the better development of
a Canadian enterprise, Tho service may
not now be perfect but tho money that
would be necessary to divert our teh graphic
business to the American systems would be
ample to place the Canadian service free
from possibility of interruption.
We do uot desire it to be understood that
we are urging hostility to Viotoria interests.
We simply desire to point out what we be-
lie'e to be an injustice to the rest of the
Province which we ere satisfied Iris not the
sympathy of the solid business men of tho
Capital City.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Sir John Abhctt having passed away there
now remains no ex-Premier of the Dominion. In England the only ex-Premier ia the
Marquis of Salisbury. Of ex-Presidents cf
the United States now alive there ia but thu
one, Ben Harrison. Tho moat remarkable
ex-Premier ever recorded in hia day ia Gladstone. He has been Premier four times.
During each interval he was, of course, ex-
Premier.
More than half the spindles in the country
are silent; more than a thousand mills are
closed; more than a million hands are idle.
If tariff revision ia to come, then the sooner
the better, but in view cf the distress which
prevails it would be humanity and sound
public policy for the Democrats in congress
to agree that all tariff changes should be
postponed for two years. Thia declaration
would open the mills, relieve uncertainty
and revive atognant industry, and give the
people a ch nee to elect a new congress.
For the first nine months of the present
year the imports of champagne have only
amounted to 220,445 cases, as against 2.38,-
8,37 cases for the corresponding period in
1892, Another bit of evidence showing that
times are hard.���San Francisco Chronicle.
Montreal Gazelle: There is a lot of taffy
going for Dalton McCarthy now that he Ins
changed his coat. Sir Richard Cartwright
said of him the other night at Ingersoll that
"he was looted upon at one time as the
brain of the Conservative party." An injury
to the brain (oot to apeak of total lose) is
invariably followed by paralysis; but the.e
seems to be plenty of kick left in the Liberal-
Conservative party yet.
A trade journal, commenting ou the repeal of the purchase clause of thu silver act
of 1890, remarks:���"The opponents of repeal frankly anil openly admitted that lliey
had been beaten in the long struggle aud
that little remained for the repealers but to
gither the fruits of victory." This passage
was written by a man who had actually
made himself beliove that the Sherman
silver-purchase act waa responsible for the
depression in stocks, and who thought that
repeal would be followed by au immediate rise. He haa already found out
hia error, and perhaps before he is
many daya older he will realize the
force of an observation recently made
in the columus of the New York Tribune,
that there is precious little chance fur a
bull movement when the pricea of products
are falling almost daily. If this brilliant
financial writer���who ia one of the editors of
Bradstreet's���knew the a. b. c of economics
he would not have maeln the mistake of advocating a measure the inevitable effect of
whicn niu8t be to reduce prices and impair
enterprise, when he was desiious of seeing a
successful bull movement.
Block villa Recorder: An interesting story
as corroborative of the evidenoe adduoed at
the Luckey trial concerning tho threats
made by the prisoner, has just come to light
through one Picard, a Gananoque man, who
has himself done time in the Central.
Picard, so the story goes, after returniug
from Toronto, and before the Luckey murder had beon committed, waa asked how ho
managed to get along in prison without tobacco, his questioner knowing him to
be a heavy user of the weed. Picard replied that he didn't have to go without
as a fellow prisoner uamed Luckey peddled it about the prison. Ho further
vouchsafed the information that "thia fellow
Luckey was a tough one," and that he hud
said he was in prison because of hia father
and when he got out he would go down
there and kill him. Picard left Ganantiquo
before the murder, but as soon as hia statements came to the eara of Detective Grier,
he set about locating him. He was found a
considerable distance away and was not
brought down, but it is understood that had
a verdict of acquit'al been given, Luckey
would have been tried again on a charge of
killing his Btepmother, when l'icurd would
have appeared as a witness against him.

finrroK Tci.moi.ui.
I read in one of the Victoria dailies.that a
meeting of the Victoria Poultry Society waa
held in Victoria on Wednesday evening last.
At that meeting among other matters
discussed was the action of the B. C. Dog,
Poultry and Pet Stock Aaaociation of B C.
in promising Eupport to Nanaimo iu holding
a show there. It wan resolved to aak tbe
aforesaid aaaociation if they intend to hold
a show this winter and in case they did not
to apply fur the Government grant. For
the benefit of the Victoria aocioty I tender
them the following information in the most
fraternal     poultry      spirit. It     ought
to be well known to many members ef that society thnt at the annual
meeting at t he close of the annual exhibition
of the B. C. P., D. and P. S. Aaaociation in
Victoria last year a resolution waa paasod to
the effect that tha members present recommended to the executive the desirability of
holding the next annual exhibition of tho
society at Nanaimo. At that meeting also,
the two reproaentativea from Nanaimo, viz :
Mr. S. W. Lobb and myself, wbo, by the
way, exhibited more fowl than all of the
Victoria exhibitors put together, stated that
Nanaimo would do her part generously in
the way of providing for the expenses
incidental to t heexhibition. Now, what I wiih
my Victoria brethren to understand is this
that the Poultry Exhibition in Nanaimo
is really the annual exhibition of the B. C.
P. D. and P. S. Association under the au
spices of our local society aa necessary
to success. Tee parent society aa
I understand it is a provincial
society not a local one and as
auch has aa much right to be held here aa in
Victoria. We have always generously aup-
ported the laat named city with our exhibits
and have spent much valuable time in Attending tho shows, and I think that the
Victoria eociety exhibits���well, I will say a
want of discretion in eibj' c'ing to the annual
exhibition being held here. We are all
an xir.ua for the sake of the "fancy" that no
bickerings or jealouaiea ahould arise. I told
the society laat year very plainly that a certain "give and take" must be shown on all
aides to ensure the permanency of th^exhilv-
tinr. Ir, was thia verysubjsot of "exhibition
locality" which wrecked tno B. C. Agricultural Asaociation. New Weatminater wanted the exhibition held there and Victoiia
wanted it at the Capital, snd a division
was the consequence. Aa a lover of
poultry I wish to aee perfect harmony in
our ranks, for without it no auccesa or permanency can he hoped for or expected.

East Wellington.
YeBterday a email force of men were put
to work to take up the raila and other material from the No. 2 pit of tha above colliery. The mulea have all been turned out
to pasture. It ia not the intention of the
management to remove the pumpa as yet.
They will be used to keep a certain pirt of
the mine clear of water for a short time at
least. Tho late underground employees removed all of their tools before two o'clock
yesterday afternoon and then wont to the
office and received their pay in full. Mr.
Pollexfcn, the company's bookkeepor, ia
now engaged in Battling up the accounts
in order to close up the booka. It
is a mistaken idea to Buppono that
iu tho late disagreement thero eould have
been any arbitration committee appointed to
settle the dispute between the company and
the men as after the employees "oame out"
for a rise of wages, 60 it is said at the office,
Mr. R I). Chandler finally determined upon
shutting the works down and no arguments
or reejuesta from the publio would have
altered that determination. Quito a number of (lie men have already founel work in
tho No. 4 pit of the Wellington collieries
but those who have been "old timers" in
tha colliery will leav6 their dwellings for
other camps with much regret.
Attaches No Significance to the Reports.
WAsmxeiTON, Nov. 19.���The despatches
from EI Paso and Denver reapecting the reported troubles in Mexico wete shown to
Minister Romeo this evening. He ttated
that he attached no pirticular significance
to them. There wua, he tad, no connection
between the rebels in Chichuahua and those
in Guerreo. Minister Romeo is in receipt
of telegrams from President Diaz and the
Minister of Foreign Affairs, st.it ing that a
party of bandits entered the custom house
at Palomas, when but the clerkB were present,
and rifled the sale of ��200; all the money it
contained. The robbers then fled acrosa the
border into the United States, and were
expocted to come aa far north as Silver City,
N.M. Tho telegrams did not mention the
number engaged in the raid on the custom
house, as it was believed woulel have been
the case had it been unusually largo.
THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL
Tho "Maud S" Caso Dismissed nnd Russians Pay tho Costs-T. S. Kingston to
Have Opposition���A Vessel Grounds at
Raco Roclcs.
Vii'ioniA, B. C, Nov. l(i ���The eteamship
Mogul just arrived from Yokohama, brings
word that tho trial of the sealing schooner
"Maud S" resulted in a verdict of acquittal
with costs against (he Russian Government.
"Maud S,' waa overhauled during the early
part of the preBent Beason by a Russian
Cruiser. Tho officer commanding confiscated her papers and charged her with sealing within prohibited limits and ordered
her to report to the British Consul at Yokohama for trial. The defense waa that the
schooner waa unintentionally in proscribed
territory having been driven there in stress
of weather and waa not sealing, that she
was practically there in distress.
The proposal to give opposition to t he
steamer Kingston on Puget Sound and Viotoria run line been renewed, the parties moving this time being the Columbia River and
Puget Sound Transports! ion Co. They will
put on the Bteamer Flyer, the fastest craft
in these waters, and work in oounoction
with tho Great Northern Railway.
Incorporation is gazetted to day of the
Wellington Investment and Improvement
Company, who propose to establish warehouses, breweries, distilleries, t healers, hotels
ice harvesting and mauuf'g plants, cold storage warehouses, factories, steamer lines,
etc. Tho capital stock ia two hundred
thousand dollara and the trustees aro John
A. Thompson, A. G. Me. Mutrie, Edward
Patten, and Robert MoMaiiuj. all of
Wellington,
Tho steamers arriving and depirtinp today have been carefully searched for P. M.
Izontsoo, defaulting treasurer of New What-
come who ia wantod for the embezzelment
of sixty thouaand dollara of funda entrusted
to him. It waa thought he would make an
effort to aecrete himself on the Warrimoo
bound for Australia, but apparently ho took
some other course. Sergenc Haywood of
the Vancouver police force came down from
the Terminal City on tho ateamer spending
five hours searching and while ahe lay here
a close watch wus kept upon her. Izentsee,
ia described aa a dark email man of thirty
five years, black moustache and decidedly
lame.
While the police were searching co,st
cities aim ateamers Superintendent Hussey
of the Provincial Police, who haa never been
known to miaa big gamo yet, wont quiotly
to Yalei and there located and arrested the
fugitive treasurer. He will be brought back
to Westminster and there held for delivery
to the American authorities after extradition papers have been taken out.
The British steel barque Harold, arriving
from Shanghai to load salmon under Robert
Ward and Co.'s charter, ran ou au unmarked ledge near Race Rocks thia morning, aud
though not aeriously injured apparently, at
once docked at Esquimalt for repair.
Considerable anxiety is expressed for the
safety of the sealing schooner Mary Brown,
Captaiu Brown, owner and master, which
discharged skins here and Bailed for Alaska
three mouths ago. She has not since beon
reported and it ia feared ahe has been
wrecked.
Big Bonk Suits.
Toi.Ktio, Ohio, Nov. 16.���This morning in
the U.S. Circuit Court in this city a number of suits were filed by Wm. Niblook,
receiver of the Columbian National Bank of
Chicago, againat a number of banks in Ohio,
to reoover certificates of deposits given by
the various banks in queation to the United
States Loan and Trust Company, which certificates of deposit were transferred to tho
Columbian Bank. It is said that $300,000
of these certificates were given by Ohio
���banks alone. It is claimed the procecdinga
will bring to light some matters that will
create a sensation in financial circles, showing the operations of the United States
Loan and Trust Co.
Tho Pilot to Blame.
Sax Francisco, Nov. 16.���This morning
the board of pilot commissioners reviewed
the testimony given in the caae against
Pilot George Johnson, snd after due deliberation decided that the loaa of the steamer
City of New York was due to the actiou.of
the pilot. It was moved that his license aa
a pilot be revoked and the order waa ao
made. The decision of the commissioners
was not unexpected. The fact that the
board haa laid the blame of the loaa of the
���teamer on the pilot removes all responsibility from Captain Johnson of the ateamer,
and be will undoubtedly remain in the service of the Pacifio Mail Steamship Company.
Expert Sent to Save the S.S. Mlowera.
San FRANCISCO, Cala. Nov. 15.���Middy
AYawan of London, an experienced ship
builder, is in the cily en route to Hawaii to
save, if posaible the steamship Miowera,
which hue been on a reef there since October 2ud. He will inspect tha wreck aa an
expert with others interested in Lloyds. As
yet Wuwau says that he cannot exprrss an
opinion as to whether or not the vessel oan
be got off. Capt. Metoalf, who ia at present
working on the ship in the endeovor to save
her, writes that she is in a sheltered position.
Wawan has not seen the City of New York
and would not say whether or not she could
bs taken off the rooks.
Heavy Railway Losses.
Nkw York, Nov. 16.���The report of
Stophen Little, who made an examination of
the books of tho Philadelphia and Reading
Railway, was presented at a joint meeting
to-day of the general mortgage bond holders
and the income mortgago bond holders committees. It made such a mass of figures
that two hours were occupied in its reading.
It waa resolved not to make it public until
a aummary could be prepared, which will
take several days. The report, ia aaid to
show substantially that the Reading haa
lost ��1,600,000 from the loaa of the Lehigh
Valley and 31,500,000 from Ihe speculations
in Boston and Maine and New England
stocka, aleo that the company needs $15,-
000,000 cish to put it in condition to be
operated economically. Instead of appointing a reorganization committee, it is said
the bond holders committees mill undertake
the work of raising this sum and that the
bond holders and stock holders will be colled
upon to furnish the money in some way.
Opinions on the Hawaiian Situation.
San Francisco, Nov. 16���Charles R.
BiBhop, one of the most prominent residents
of Honolulu, who is on a visit to (his city,
when asked today for his views on the situation at the Islands said: "Should the Queen
be restored to the tlirono it is doubtful
whether the monarchy oould be maintain d
without the support of the United States
Government. Even with that backingtheie
might be a disturbance. From what I am
told I think tho feeling in Honolulu is very
strong against the restoration of tho Queen,
but were it not for her efforts to overthrow
the constitutie.li in which the people had
confidence she might be reigning still. It
looks now as if the best way out of Ihe
difficulty there would be annexaliou with
the United States and tho establishment of
a territorial form of government. There ii
more unity of sentiment at Honolulu against
the restoration of Q leen Lilluokalani than
against the monorchia! form of government.
Associated in the movement that resulted
in deposing tho Queen were a number of
English business men and others who do not
favor annexation to the United States.
They would much prefer the creation of a
regency to govern until the Princess Kaiu
lani shall oome of age, if such an arrange,
ment oould bo brought about. But the great
majority unquestionably favor annexation."
C. L. Wight, president of the Hawaiian
Railroad who is also ou a visit tallied freely
this morniog on aff lira in tho Inlands. "It
is safe to Bay" he aaid "That 05 per cent, of
the white population of Hawaii are in full
sympathy with the Provisional Government
aa oppoaed to the restoration of the
monarchy. The supporters of the Queen
almost without exception are people who
have an axe to grind, who hope for royal
favor or patronage of some sort. Tbe present Government ia made up of men of the
higheat standing in the business community. Not more than one of them can be
aaid to have bettered hia poaition by taking
office. Do I favor annexation? Frankly
no, though I am myself au American citizen
by birth and American conaul. I think
that an elective form of Government should
bo established under American protectorate,
but I would like to see the men now at the
head of affairs continued in power. The
great difficulty in the way of annexation is
need of cheap labor on tl.e sugar plantations.
I do not see how that difficulty oould be
overcome under annexation but as for
monarchy, Hawaii will have do more of
that."

Waiting for tne Tide.
Reports from Duncan stale tbat a largo
foree of lumbermen are collected at Cow-
ichan River awaiting a favorable ttsge of
the liver to begin the elrive of logs. These
men are in the employ of the Bank of 6. N.
A. into whose hands the property of tho
Cowichan Mill fell after the lailure of the
company.
Large Panther.
A son of Mr. Greenwood while hunting
through the bush a day or two ago in search
of game saw what he tcok to be a huge deer
partly concealed in the denee foliage. It
took him Lut a moment to biicg his rifle to
the shoulder, his eye glanced rapidly along
the barrel and pulling a steady r ull on the
trigger he sent a bullet crashing through ibo
animals braic Judge of his surprise,
when oming up to the object he found the
animal to le net a deer but a large panihor.
The place whore the animal was
killed was on Stark's road near to the Victoria Road. Ho must havebeen very hungry
to venture so close to the settlement. Young
Mr. Greenwood biought the carcnBe into
town and after getting paid tho usual bounty by Mr. Bray he sold it to Mr. Marsh, of
the Fish Market, who disembowelled it and
hung the meat up for sale. Ready purchasers are not scarce as the meat is considered
a great delicacy by the Chinese.
The Local Coal Market.
J. W. Harrison writes as follows relative
to the present condition of the Sun Francisco coal market:
During the week there have been the following arrivals.From the coast collieries,
7,850 tons: from foreign porta, 630 tons.
The deliveries locally of foreign coals at this
time of the year are always large, hence
stocks on hand are not excessive, and cargoes to arrive in the next t hirty days should
find ready sale at covering rates. At best
the market is heavy aud buyers aro not
liberal in their views. It is ditlicult to
hazard an opinion how the future market
will shape itself, there are so many contingencies that may arise to influence values.
Jobbers are simply buying sufficient to
meet their assured demands, no speculating
being done.

Against Her Dnty.
"The Story of a Kiss," in whieli MIbs
Merli will be seen next Friday, ia our cily,
is a play of intense interest. The scenes are
laid in Paris at the present time in four acts:
Act est, '"T*ixt Love and Duty;" act 2nd,
"The Hope Fulfilled;" act 3rd, "The Marriage Spectre;" act 4th, "God Disposes." The
part which Miss Merli assumes is a very
ditlicult one, portraying a character of intense feeling whom circumstance has thrown
in such a position that her love, ideas of
right and disposition weigh in the balance
against her duty. How many are placed in
such a position and how many oan stand the
test? There is a strong moral to be learned
and which our theatre goers will bone lit by
attending tho performanoc.
Katie Putnam Coming.
The above winsome little actress will appear at the Opera House, Tuesday Nov. 21st
in her new play, "The Little Maverick,"
supported by one of the best comedy companies travelling. The Boston Sunday
Times says: "Miss Katie Putnam last night
brought her successful engagement to a
close, and she made her farewell appearance
to a crowded house. "She has, dui ing htr
stay in our city, won for herself unfading
laurels as an artiste, and gained a hold upon
the good will as well as excited the admiration of our people. "Miss Putnam's acting
is something rare. It is grand in many of
its featuies. It is earnest, enthusiastic,
geniuslike and carries with it a power to
control an audience. It is unnecessary to
judge her by others. She is true to her own
genius and powers, aud her impersonations
not only bear the stamp of lofty superiority,
but they have successfully met the polished
criticism of tbe ablest, pens." Reserved

Alvin Joslin.
Ch��8. L. Davis, the only impersonator of
that 1'uaintly unique, almost impossible but
funny character, Uncle Alvin, will once
more present "Alvin Joslin" with his usual
capable company at the Opera House tonight. In the part of Uncle Alvin, Davis
certainly laughs himself into the hearts of
his audiences long before the finish of the
first act, ami while elicits, as the posters ex
press it, 180 laughs in 180 minutes, gives
evidence of excellent drematic ability and
considerable magnetism. The play while
abounding in humorous situations and laugh
able complications is very interesting
The characters are well drawn and the interest of the audience held from the beginning with uproarious manifestations of delight. The play is well supplied with elaborate and effective scenery, and Mr. Davis
has surrouneled himself with an excellent
company. The scenery and realistic effects
are specially worthy of mention.
The company will arrive on tho noon
train from Victoria, where they appeared to
a crowded house. Reserved Beats at Pi

i Glove* te Ancient Times.
I The antiquity of gloves, though remote, may, uot run exieval with that of
the human hand. It is claimed, however, ibat distinct evidences are given ol
their use by the cave-dwellers. Mr. 8.
W. Beck, whose researches upon gloves
are very full and minute, notes the fad
that where the drawing off of the shoe
is referred to in the book of Ruth tha
"shoe" should be translated "glove."
The Hebrew scholars who make this contention say also that the shoe is nevei
made a token of faith, but is only associated "with sets of humility and
obeisance." So in Psalm cviii., where
it is said, "Over Eelom will I cast out
mV shoe," the word "shoe" should be
"glove." For "to throw a glove over
E'lom would accord with all precedent
in conveying a challenge, or the utterance of a boastful promise of punish
ment To throw a shoo would have no
war-like significance whatever."
Among the Israelites it is certain
gloves were a sign simply of rank, or useel
for display, as with all early peoples.
Ancient paintings of a mural kind exhibit them on the hands of kings and
���lersons high in authority. For everyday w.'ar and among tbe common people a more primitive device prevailed
for purposes of protection, since "the
sleeves e>f both sexes were long and am-
.pie, and readily available for hand-coverings when defence against inclemency
Of the weather was needed." The cloak,
too, when it was of liberal size and
warmth, could be easily made to covei
the hands securely.
Acertain Roman writer thought it waa
a specie's of effeminacy to wear gloves,
but his invectives against them had little
effect. Among the epicures���or, ont
might better say, gluttons���of Rome gloves
were worn at tbe table. As the knifa
auel fork were not then used, it being the
custom to carve and handle the viands
with the lingers, those who had theil
hanels habited coulel he>ld the hottest
meats without trouble, and were sure to
get a larger share than tho persons who
dined ungloved.
Whether tbe Romans introduced tin
glove into England is not established. It
was found there, however, in Anglo-
Saxon times. The poem of "Beewulf,"
a seventh century romance, mentions the
glove; and not much later gloves figure
iu the customs laws as a part of the
duty paiel by German merchants. Allowing ccclesiaetdos to wear gloves in
church while the laity were to remove
theirs was an old rule; white gloves
were, in fact, put on the bishop at his
inclination to symbolize the purity of his
office. A prayer in more than one of the
old missals offered by ecclesiastics contains the petition "that I may be found
with pure bands." Among the churoh
trappings of the Middle Ages highly or-
nauu'iite-'il g!ove>s are enumerated. Gold,
silver, and precious stones were employed in making them, and there was also
no lack of lavish elecoration.���Joel Ben>

WORD
About what
The Butterick
Publishing Company
Say about
Their Patterns
Purchasers of our Patterns
will note that, beginning with
the issue for the present month,
a material reduction has been
made from the prices hitherto
charged, this reduction having
been determined upon iu view
of the present financial and
corrmercial depression, which
is affectiDg every class of
society, but particularly the
wage-earners, who are necessarily the least able to withstand any condition which for
a time decreases or wholly
withdraws their income.
The enormous circulation of
"The   Delineator" (the   com
c���
bined  first American,   English
and Canadian editions of the
present number are ov<r 560,
000 copies) is proof that it
srtisfies a very general ueed,
and our aim for the future will
be to merit an ever increusirg
share of popular favor by main
taining a continual improvement in the quality and scope
of the magazine. In reducing
the prices of our Patterns we
have been actuated by motives
of regard for those who lave
contributed, by their constant
patronage, to our own success.
The demand for Butterick Patterns is now larger than ever
before, and we are confident
that by diminishing their cost
we will lessen the financial
pressure in many a household,
and at the same time introduce
our goods to women who have
heretofore been unacquainted
with their merits.

Woinun in the Witness Chair.
A woman iu the witness chair in a court
6t justice is a source of perplexity te a good
lawyer. To the indifferent practitioner it
makes little difference whether the witness
is a mail or a woman. With equal perversity
he pitches into everybody who appean
.against him, and often succeed.- i p'ejuilio
ing his client's cause. A shrewd attorney
handles pi-oof in petticoats very gingerly.
When a pretty woman's name is called iu
court, she rustles to tho stand, looks modest
and out of place, kisses tbe Bible���the
same holy book whose leathern covers are in-
crusted with grease���with an oh-I've-got-to
expression, and then waits expectantly for
the trouble to begin. If she is trilling with
tho truth, and the lawyer knows it, he cannot brow-beat her as he would a man, but h(
must smile, behave courteously, and dismij'J
hor with a bow; otherwise tbe jury will fight
against him in their deliberation room, If
she is homely, and ho cross-examines her toe
much aud too truculently, sho will brace
herself uud fell linn more in a minute thau
he wants toknowfrom hor iu a lifetime. The
|,retti6st way for a lawyer to hand over a
female witness to the body politic is by seme
such expression as, "That is all, my dear
miss," if sho is 40, or, "I have no further
questions, madam; then with a sudden show
of recollecting himself, propound a question
trig with results, and dollars to cents she will
fall into the trap and hurt tho. side of the
���cause she was called to aid. An old prac
tioiier says that his invariable rule has Iicv.l
uot to cross-examine a woman to any extent.���New York Times.

SCIENCE  AND PROGRESS-
Sitijclitiiing Sometimes Proceeds From th<
Kir rl h as W��U as the Clouds.
During the progress of electrical storniB it
this State it was noted in several places tha'
electrical discharges passed from the earth t��
the clouds, as well ns from the clouds to till
earth. Tire Post-Express described thii
phenomenon as observed at Iro ndequoit BeJ,
A gentleman who reeently returned from
the Adirondack^ observed the same electrical
action. Discharges passed from the hillj
across Star Lake to the clouds, and from the
clouds to the hills. Similar observations wert
made in this city in 18S5 or 1860. Preceding
aud during the volcanic eruptions iu New
.Zealand, June 11, 1886, electric fireballs of
mete >rs were obsorved to pass from the earth.
These electrical discharges were from rugionl
considerably removed from the volcanut
craters.
It has been urged that the eye cannot de.
tect the direction of a lightning flush, and
that the passage of a discharge from the
earth to the sky is only apparent, an opti
cal illusion. This objection is employed
mainly to support atheory that the passage
is always from the sky to the earth. If the
reasoning of the objection be correct, what
is there to support the theory that ,the pas1
sage is always from tbe sky to the earth!
The statement that discharges are invari-
ably from the sky to the earth is based or,
observation, and has no other basis. An
ijirjaot on the earth may be shattered by a
holt passing from the earth to the sky at
well us by jiassago from sky to earth. Tha
shattering force is ^hown when tho fluid
|>us-es from one medium to another. The
testimony of sight must be accepted in case
of apparent passage of the bolt from enrtb
to sky if it is accepted in the passages from
sky to earth.���Rochester (N. Y.) Democrat.
mineral India Rubber Asphalt.
According to tho Practical Mechanical
Electrician, another article formerly considered worthless has beeu added to the useful products, and is known as mineral India
rubber asphalt. It is produced during tbe
process of refining tar by sulphuric acid, aud
forms a black material very much like ordinary asphalt and elastic India rubber. When
heated so that the slimy matter is reduced
to about 60 per cent, of the former size, s
hard substance is produced resembling ebony.
It can be dissolved iu naphtha, and is an excellent uou-conductor of electricity, aud
therefore, valuuble for covering tolegraph
wires and other purposes where a non-conducting substance is needed. Dissolved, the
mineral India rubber produces a good water
proof varnish. The manufacture of the material is said to be very profitable, aud to
pay the inventor 400 to 500 jer cent.
The Moon's Influence on the Weather.
La Nature commenting on an article on the
influence of the moon on   weather by Dr. G.
. Meyer savs that although such investigations
have hitherto given   a   negative  result, the
.author thought that with the materials furnished by synoptic charts he might eliminate
local influences, and he gives tables extending over a number of years which, seem to
show the influence of tbe moon in lowering
the height of the barometer in the months of
September to January at the time of full
moon, and in raising it dnring the first quarter. Tho Deutsche Seewarte, which communicates the article, points out that a similar result has been independently arrived at
by Capt. Seemann, one of the assistants of
the institution. The same effect or any other
is not perceptible in other months.

COMIC MUSIC IN THE THEATRES.
gongs That Make Many a .Singer���How
Humorous Songs Are Built and Who
Inflicts Xbem��� Ditties Without Rhyme
or Reason���Samples.
OME of us know how
a funny scng is writ>
ten, but many of us do
not. Of. them there are
many; but tbe good
are few. There are today being bummed all
over this I road laud,
in tho concert halls,
and vaudeville and
legitimate play-houses,
and even among the
better classes whose
gatherings are features of the Whiter season
nere, many songs, any one of which, if seriously considered, would lie condemned for bald
Illiteracy, nonentity of theme, and absurd
construction. Tho comic song of the day is
now an established institution; it has come,
but how long it shall remain none can say.
It is of comparatively recent date in its
present status, and has become more or less
of a rage. But the exact excuse for its
alleged humor is often as vague ns its meaning, and many of tbe so-called comic ditties
arepueri'e iu tone, und with tl'at Bame'serious
consideration, would more readily bring a
sigh of regret than a smile to the truly intellectual.
How these creations are produced if
almost as great a mystery as the accounting
for the public's passion for them. They are
cot created in a literary sense; certain it is
they are not Inspired; they seem to grow,
or rather to exude from the fancy of more
than one active brain���whose only mitigation is its fertility���like a fungus from a
dead log bj- a country roadside. Never in
the history of song-writing have the publisher nnd public been surfeited with such an
avalanche of comicality as now. Almost
daily a new theme is eagerly caught i p,
revolved in the brain of tho writer and
launched upon the public. These songs,
as a rule, bear but little originality
either in verso or in music. A newspaper paragraph, a witty criticism by
a fellow-actor oi friend, mi incident
ou the street or stage, or condition of low
life, all furnish cues. Many of tho songs
emanate from tbe brains of actors themselves, and upon such rneagro foundations
are woven 'the most ordinary verbiage and
extraordinary slang, nnd then, perbnps,given
over to some musical mechanic who furnish
ns what the would-be author likes.
ALWAYS HOPING FOB A STAKE.
Few comic-sung writers, ns may be seen
by a glance at their title pages, are callable
of both. But appearances are ever deceitful and oftentimes there is emblazoned upon
the gaudily lithographed frontispiece n
aame as author and composer that would
do discredit from a true literary standpoint t<. a primary class composition.
The comic song, ouce built, is so heard
a fow limes iu public, and should
tho audience fail to raise en masse and smite
tho perpetrator, a p ublisher may just now
be readily found to issue the song for the
privilege of copyright, iu the hope thnt it
may be a second "Annie Boone}*" financially. It would seem, too, from the approval awarded this class of composition,
that public tnsto aud sentiment are sadly
deteriorating, for many of these songs, to
say tho least, breathe suggestions that lack
finer sonsibilities. Pugilism, tenement life,
the horse, the game, the byword of the
barroom, tho frailties of human nature, from
the struggle for tho ahnightly dollar to the
physical and moral deformities of manWnd
in general, and every conceivable human
weakness are largely utilized in their makeup. Such is the comic song of the day, however, aud so eager is the ordinary public to
be what the latest vulgarism declares as "In
it," that the columns of the daily papers are
ardently sought for quotations of these songs.
There sale is consequently large, so large, iu
fact, that of late there is but comparatively
little demand for anything else.

���What  the   Human    Butterflies are
Mnsv About.
A good wife must have mental attractiveness. I do not say that she must be well
versed in classic lore and polite literature, but
she must have that common intelligence, flt
for every duy use, which is absolutely essential to make her intercourse with society pleasing to herself and agreeable to others.
And the girl who is ignorant in these
days generally has but two excuses for her
ignorance: she was either lazy or crazy after
the boys. A good wife must at least know
enough of physiology to appreciate the importance of cleanliness of person and iu the house.
A carelessly dressed, slatternly and untidy
woman cannot lous' keep her place on the
throne of her husband's life. From a lazy,
slovenly woman may heaven deliver you I
The devil tempts everybody, but a slovenly
woman tempts tbe devil. Young man, look
out where you are going I A lazy girt will
make a lazy wife, just as sure as a crooked
sapling will make a crooked tree. A good
wife should know enough of arithmetic to
check the accounts of merchants and market-
men, and reckon tho amount saved by paying cash. The reason why so many people
get along so miserably in life is because they
have no knowledge of arithmetic.
Walking skirts are growing longer and
tighter, and by the time the hawthorn buds

effects on the promenade. All the ladies of
elegance and wealth have silk for tho foun-
latiou of their dresses, aud after that comes
linen or silesia lining. Print and talk to the
contrary, skirts are not faced with leather,
rubber or even canvas. A soft stuff instead

Mine. Von Teuffel, nee Blanche Willis
Howard, is still living in Stuttgart, writing
busily, iu the hope of producing some work
that will second the famous little "One
Summer." Dr. Von Teuffel recently said to
a friend that "it would be a blot on his
���scutcheon if her marriage should paralyze
her literary faculties." But for all that
Blanche Howard wrote for money, and women the world over bave been happy to have
the yoko removed by a husband's love.
Miss Virginia Reid was the mother of American newspaper women. In 1773 she purchased and edited a weekly called tho Virginia Gazette, a paper devoted to the Colonial cause. Iu 1774 Mrs. H. Boyle established
a rival journal, which she called the Boyal
News, and the two ladies pulled hair, threw
stones aud called each other names in tho
most approved stylo of Continental journalism.
Although tha severity of the tailor shop is
impressed upon the cloth dress, the lightweight silks aud all soft and airy materials
for tea gowns, dancing dresses and reception
toilets are as bouffant as Dolly Varden her-
Belf could have desired. Slouves are gathered, puffed and caught up with ribbons,
flowers nnd ornaments; there are butterflies
on one pair of shoulders, humming birds on
another aud rosettes on a third.
A bold effort will be made to popularize
striking jacket-cloths. Already the blsouit-
"Solored coats are on the streets, and iu preparation is the bright scarlet box-cloth, with
braiding of dull silver and buttons of white
silver. Another stunniug coat is a peart
white, braided iu silver, and a cream white,
with facings of black lamb.
Mrs. Anna C. Fall, of Boston, Is the third

Wrecked on the West Coast.
Two young men, Stanley Eraser and
James J&mieson, arrived in town last evening from Alberni. They report the wreck
of their trading sloop on the west coast. In
order to ascertain the fuels of the case a
TELEGRAM representative called upon the
young men at the Palace Hotel, wheie they
are guests. The disaster may be best described in the words of M r. Eraser, who said:
"We left Victoria at 7:20 a.m. on the first
of November in the sloop Lapaloma of Viotoria. After leaving we had a fine run
down the straits as far as San Juan. It was
a bright clear day but at night fall the wind
began to increase and kept fiosben-
ing the whole night so that by morning we were in the middle of a perfect-
gale with a wicked sea, the weather also
was thick with a heavy fog and rain wind
S. E. I may say that we were ou a trading
expedition up the west cast, tho sloop was
laden with general merchandise of the value
of a few hundred dollars. The weather was
thiok all night. At break of day we could
Bee the outline of a point which is at the
entrance of I'acheena Bay. We ran into
the bay and dropped our anchor but as there
was no holding ground we dragged ashore
on a ledge of rocks and as the sea kept
pounding her on the rocks, her whole side
soon got smashed in and she became a total
wreck. The tide waB ebb at the time ���and
we held on to the maBt until we were able
to jump off her with safety. We gathered
np a couple of blankets and with some
apples saved from the wreck walked alont;
tha beach towards Cape Bealo. Wo struck
a Siwash shack half a mile from the wreck.
It was uninhabited and we stopped there
five days the weather being so bad we could
not very well leave. We lived on apples all
that time. From there we walked to the
light house where Mr. Cox the light house
keeper took us in and treated ub very kindly. We stayed there five days and on the
arrival of a Siwash in a canoe with the
mail for the liyhl house we took passage
with him for Alberni. The trip there was
slow with a head wind all the way. It took
us two days to reach Alberni. From Alberni we walked here and felt pretty weary
when we tr,ot in. We return by train to
Victoria in the morning.
Don't overlook Sloan k Scott's big advertisement on onr last page it will be to your
advantage to read it through very carefully. 17-ll-2t

Shipowners and Sailors.
San Francisco, Nov. 111. ���The Shipowners' Association to-day commenced a new
deal by the shipping of Bailers for coasting
vessels, and from present appearances it is
thought that considerable benefit will result,
not alone to the sailors themselves but to
the owners of vessels. Briefly reviewed,
the plan put in operation is to secure for the
coasting vessels the very be.-.t sailors that
can be obtained. The men are rated according to the work they perform. If they
prove acceptable sailors they are compensated
not alone in wacjes but are given rank which
insures their speedy employment on other
vessels. Before the plan was put in operation
it was the subject of much discussion at the
meeting of directors of Ship Owner Association. Generally 'speaking affairs have run
smoothly but there are a few captains who
desire to be froe from all rules and would
like to ship men from places whenever they
9 fit. They are in the minority and it is
evident they will have to joint the majority
before very long.
The resolution which the directors of the
Ship Owners Association have pissed
established a set of working rules governing
the shipping of sailors in the Shipping
Association snd when captain's apply for
men they must observe the rules now in
force.
Saves the Government Expense of a Buoy
The annual report of the Victoria Board
of Trade recently issued refers to the wreck of
the ss. San Pedro as follows: "All attempts
to raise thess. 'San Pedro,' which foundered,
have, unfortunately, proved unsuccessful,
and she still remains fast onBrotchie Ledge.
The ship as she now lies is probably the most
effective Beacon that could be. placed over the
ledge, but she should, if possible, be removed without delay, etc. The italics are
ours and are used merely to point out the
fact that it is a further evidence of that
spirit which finds consolation in disaster.
As a matter of fact, however, the 'San Pedro' did not 'founder' but ran high up on a
rock,"
