London, Dec. 30.���Henry Labouchere,
the Radical leader and fighting editor of
Truth, pursues without cessation his Chtn-
piigu against .heGovernment's plan of continuing the ��10,000 allowance to Prince
Alfred of haxe-Cobourg Gol ha iu his capacity as Duke of Edinburgh. He has canvassed the Radical members of the House of
Commons to get signatures to bis protest
against the grant. This protest will be
presented to Mr. ii adetuut*. Lab' uohert's
hostility to Mr. Gladstone is becoming
more evident daily. He has no: forgiven the Premier lor excluding
him from office. Both iu the lobby and
in the press he hints at. the advisability of
Mr. Gladsi one's retiring from public life.
His suggestions of this sort, however, have
found no echo anywhere in the government
ranks; on the contrary they are resented
generally. Although Mr. Gladstone is failing physically, the Liberals feel more keenly
than ever that they have nobody to take his
place and they dread the disorganization,
wh'ch would follow his disappearance from
political life.
The distress prevalent among the poor of
London is shown by the workhouse returns
tor the holidays. On Christmas day 108,030
names were on the relief roll. This number
excteds the record of Christmas 1892 by
more than 10,000.
Aiivices from Bombay are to the effect
that the import duty of 20 per oent. is about
to'be imposed ou silver. Dealers are said
to be already offering a premium to banks
taking the risk on the imposition of the
duty. Inquiries at the Indian Office elicited
no positive information, as the officials were
exceedingly reticent but the impression was
made that no duty had yet been decided
upon by the Government. London dealt rs
do uot believe that the duty would be effective, as smuggling would be done on an
enormous scale despite all efforts of the government to prevent it.
The Admiralty plan for eularging the navy
is still in embryo. All that is known positively is that no extraordinary grant will be
demanded at once, as if the country were on
the brink of war. The Admiralty lords will
meet the \ iews and ease the task of the
Chancellor of the Exchequer by alternating
the expenditures over a number of years. A
fixed annual sum is to cover armaments and
equipments of all kinds, but the cost of the
ships is to appear in the budget ouly after
they shall have been armed and made ready
for service.
The Army and Navt/ Gazette suggests a
permanent construction committee consisting of three admirals,three oomniumlcrs and
three cupiuius, with a chief constructor and
director of naval ordinances, aud advisory
members. The committee would report annually to parliament on the progress of
home and foreign naval construction. The
suggestion is said to emanate from
the Admiralty. Sir Edward James
Reed, M. P., who speakB wiih authority
on naval matters, said to-day in an interview on the experience of the warship
Resolution in a storm in the B��y of Biscay:
"We uetd not appiehend any 'peeial perils
from battleships uf the Resolution type.
The Resolution was handled badly. She is
not unaeaworthy and there is nothing risky
about her construction."
The recent revival of the agitation for a
new trial ot Mrs. Maybriok, confined in
Woking prison because convicted of having
poisoned her husband has ended in a fizzle.
The Homo Office denies that it has
received the important new evidence which
Mrs. Maybriok'a friends were said to have
produced. Mrs. Maybriok is now employed
in the kitchen of Woking prison wheu she is
not in tho hospital. She Mill have no
chance of being reb anul until after serving
the leu: h year of hor ttrm. Her mother's
expectation tbat She will be liberated soon
is a mistake. If the Government could re-
least the Woman without exciting press comment it might be dune earlier, hut unfortunately for Mrs. Ma> brick her friends and
tho press will not lot her  case bo forgotten.

MINERS' MASS MEETING.
A Committee Waits on Mr. Robins-Investigation Waniod.
Shortly after ten o'olook yesterday morning, the adjourned meeting of the Nanaimo
and Northfield miners opened iu the Opera
House, Mr. Neil McCuish boing chairman.
Mr. T. Dawson spoko vigorously in favor
of arbitration. He believed that they
Bhould go to Mr. Robins, anil have the company's books shown for the purposes of arbitration. If the company was shown to be
losing, and really wanted a twenty per cent,
reduction, let them have it. This was offered iu tho form of a resolution and carried.
Mr. Tully Boyce agreed with the motion
just put and carried. The Noithtield
miners' opinion was that the Northfield
miue was not losing, while the company, on
the contrary, olaimed that it was. The
men nave reason to believe that the mine is
not a losing concern. The facts and figures
that the men relied upon to support their
claim should be presented to a confidential
committee for comparison with thoBe furnished by the company.    It   would   be un

was   enormous.
*j *'f   thooe present here that he would opeu ttie books to a
confidential committee   to   prove   that the
mine was a losing concern.
Mr. Horrobin argued that the coal cost no
more to get it out now than it did before.
He believed if after the way Northfield had
been working an arbitration committee was
to examine the company's books, it would
find it a losing concern, but let the mine
work one full month and it would be found
not to be a losing concern.
Mr. Lago asked why should they have to
suffer if Mr. RobinB and the Dunsmuirs
were playing a cut-throat gameiu San Francisco. Coal was equal in value to the labor
expended to get it and nothing else.
It was asked by a miner if the Northfield
mine only worked when a ship was in or if
they had a dump heap.
Mr Flp,un s.iiil there is 7.1X10 tons of good
coal in the oump heap. He believed that
the mine should be worked one monlh and
an arbitration committee see wiih what result, whether it paid or was a losing concern.
Mr. Wils'.n said it had been discussed
with Mr. Robins, who believed that the
company could not afford to operate the
mine to its full capacity for a month.
Mr. E. Duggan proposed that Mr. RobinB
be asked to allow the Northfield miue to be
steadily worked for a month, and that a
committee be appointed to determine the
cost of raising the coal.
Mr. Robins, it was shown by Arthur Wilson, was prepared to follow this course, but
the San Francisco agents could not consent.
Mr. Flynn thought a oommittee oould as i
well determine the cost of operating the
mine by one day's work as hy a month's.
It was moved by Mr. T. Dawson that a
committee of nine, six from Nanaimo and
three from Northfield, be appointed as an
arbitration committee.
After some considerable discussion regarding the power of the committee, the
motion was carried, and the following appointed, with full power to arbitrate, and in
case of failing to agree, to appoint an arbitrator : Messrs. Wilson, McCuish,Dawson,
Boyce, Keith and Booth, Nanaimo: and
Messrs. Horrobin, Lago and Flynn, North-
field.
The advisability of fining men who failed
to attend the special meeting waa discussed,
and the matter laid over for further consideration. The meeting adjourned till two
o'clock, at which time the committee were
to report the result of their conference with
Mr. Robins.
On the meeting resuming at 2 p. m., Mr.
McCuish, chairman, suggested that till the
committee returned.it would be a good plan
to discuss other subjects, such as the question of men working while*1* meeting was
in progress.
A miner believed that a fine as suggested
for those that did not attend the meeting
would be a good idea though he doubted if
it could be easily collected.
Another suggested that Mr. Robins he
notified that a mass meeting was desired and
as he favored the union, ho would probably stop the mines for the day.
Mr. Keith moved that the members of the
delegate board beinstructedtomakearrange-
ments with the New Vancouver Coal
Company or any other company in favor of
union labor so that the men should not work
when there was a call for a district
meeting.    Carried.
The question of men working while
others equally union members were idle,
waa discussed. Mr. WickB thought that the
work should be equally divided between all
the men, as long as there was any to do.
Another miner did not see how it could be
remedied,
Mr. Shanbrahy thought there waa a
remedy and that if the matter was put
before the management, some arraugeinent
might be made, for instance, that the number of working days a week he lessened and
more places in the mines worked. The following resolution was moved by T. Keith,
M.P. P.
Be it resolved ihat i' is the opinion of the
miners of Nanaimo, Northfield and East
Wellington in mass meeting assembled, that
one of the principal o,hi'cs of our present
great depression in our coal trade is largely
owing to the action of the preBem. Govem-
merit in not enforcing the ami-Chinese
clause as appears in the statues of B. C. in
the Coal Miners' Regulation Act of 1 silo.
Therefore be it res* Ived, that we ask the
Government to enforce the said Act of 181)0,
namely, the total exolusion of the Chinese
from working under-irouud in any coal mine
in the Province if British Columbia. The
resolution earrii *1
R. Booth said tha*. the question should be
decided whether the men would accept the
decisiou rendered hy arbitration.
A speaker wanted to know how, if the
arbitration went against them, could they
both accept a reduction and work at district
prices.
Mr. Flynn said Mr. Robins did not want
his books to go before the general public,
and Mr. Dawson again spoke with great
vigor to the effect that he believed in public
arbitration.
Mr. Flynn thought that the best plan
would be for the commit tee to go to Mr.
Robins ���iil get if possible such information
from him bo that they could see which was
right, he or they; and the committee should
act as a conciliation committee.
It was moved that the oommittee make
the most thorough investigation possible and
get the best temrs possible.
Mr. Dawson s.tid that they could look at
Borne of the hook.-* but no: all, and went on
to say after having alluded to the committee
as having tried to do all they could, above
all, let us turn over every method of getting out of the difficulty before we strike.
(Applause.)
VV. Keith believed that it wa8 not to be
expected that all Mr. Robins' private concerns should be paraded in public; the committee ought to have full confidence and
they would be looked upon as perfectly
trustworthy.
Mr. Boyce believed that the utmost lack
of confidence had been displayed by the different suggestions. He believed that the
committee were perfectly competent to do
all the work that may be required better
than auy mass meeting, and each member
aB well aB any single man could do
A speaker wanted to know if they had
the particulars and figures of the North-
field working expenses down in black and
white, bo that they oould work on them.
It was shown that some of the figures and
details necessary were in the oommittee'*
hinds.
Mr. Lawson's motion that the committee
go back to Mr. Robins waa carried.
Moved thut the last motion be reconsidered���carried.
Mr. Boyce said that he was willing to act
on the committee. What he wanted was to
compare the two accounts. He would pay
aB much attention to any Northfield man's
word as to Mr. Robins' word.
A motion ihat the committee go back and
get the best possible terms with Mr. Robins
was carried.
Mr. Keith'B motion for the relief of the
Wellington meu was again put as follows:
Be it hereby resolved to make application
to the Government to provide work for the
men of East Wellington who are out of
work, and was carried.
Mr. Flynn moved that the Northfield
men go to work till the question was settled by the decision of a mass meeting.
A vote of thanks to the chairman, Mr.
McCuish was passed and the meeting ad-
adjourned.

NAN AIM ���>, B. C, SUNDAY, DECEMBER 81, 1893.
THE NEW PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS.
The Centre of British Columbia's Governmental Business Attractively Described.
A description of what is beiug done at
James Bay will probably be of interest to
readers of The TELEGRAM, As Mr. Davie
said last Saturday referring to these build-
iBgs���if a thing has to be done it is best to
have it well done���and in the new provinoial
parliament buildings this is beiug exempli
licit iu a striking manner.
The plan and design of the buildings are
familiar now lo most people, and were carefully selected from the large number sent ill
in the competition at the beginning of the
year, the plans of F. M. Kattenbury being
unanimously selec ed aB the best. The
buildings aro planned on an arrangement
unique on this continent, and give all the
advantages of separate and distinct buildings for each department, whilst they all
combine lo form one large, effective and
noble structure. A happy idea in the design is the arrangement of the two detached
fireproof tuiildings for the use of the land
regis ry offioe and the printing olliee. Those
are set slightly iu advance of the main structure, and are counected to it hy covered
colonnades about 40 feet long; serving to
bring out in relief the central portion of the
group, in which the greatest amount of
architectural design has been embodied.
The principal feature which will strike
the onlooker is the grand entrance, which is
a magnificent portal with detached columns
several tiers deep on either side, carrying
molded and deeply recessed arches, sculpture and carving being employed iu the most
effective positions. This entrance is approached up a grand Uight of gran.te steps,
the material of which is from the quarries
at Nelson Island. The doorway is flanked
on either side by towers, whilst in the centre
the glorious dome soars high iuto tbe skies,
emphasizing the entrance, and forming a
culmintt'ing feature to the whole design.
Through this entrance the central hall of
the building is approached, from which the
visitor can approach directly every part of
the building. This central hall will form
one of the most attractive "features of the
interior of the buildings. Beautiful vistas
will be obtained from it through the lobby
to the legislative hall, and down the corridors with their vaulted roofs and arched
staircases on either side. Balconies are
arranged opening on to the central hall from
the floor above giving a mystery and charm
which will add greatly to the effeot.
Throughout, the interior of the buildings
has received as much care, even more, as
the exterior appearance���charming effects
of light and shade being obtained in the corridors, which have vaulted ceiliogB, with
arohed piers at each b.r, hreaking the monotonous appearance So otlen seen. The
doors to the office.-* opening out of the corridors will have arched t>ausoms filled with
cut iously shaped and artistic leaded lights,
whilst the upper panels "f each door are
filled with similar glass, A particularly pleasing little piece of interior design will be the
entrance to the legislative h,*ll from I he central dome, through a vestibule with beautiful stained glass windows on either side.
The enriched and molded ceiling, arches
springing from detached molded columns on
either side, and the massive carved oak
doors and bronze gates all make a remarkable and noteworthy piece of design.
The utmost effort of the designer's art
has, however, been bestowed upon the legislative hall, which is a nobly proportioned
room with circular marble columns carrying
a groined and coved ceiling deeply panelled
and enriched, whilst in the centre of each
bay an elliptic..! domed ceiling light will
throw a brilliant light in all directions.
Recessed behind the columns and over the
corridors surrounding the hall ou three
sides is situated the gallery for the public,
with a barrel arched concrete vault covering it. The hall will be decorated in colors
tastefully chosen and will be a very rich
and beautiful chamber.
One of the most noteworthy things in the
buildings will be the entire absence of all
Bhoddy work. Visitors will not see here the
poor plaster, decaying timber construction
cracking in all diiections.imitatious of stone
in cemeu: oi* sanded iron work; and no particle of uu or galvanized iron enters anywhere into the construction to rust and
decay in a few years. Everything is solid
aud the best of iis respective kinds for the
purpose which it has to fulfil. The basement which is already completed is entirely
of masBive granite, obtained principally
from Reefer's quarries at Burrard Inlet,
whilst the outside steps and larger blocks
will be from the Nelson Island quarries.
The whole of the building facing James hay
above the basement will be erected in Haddington Island .stone, selected partly for its
light color, as the sun rarely gets on to this
part of the structure; while the south facade
will he in Koksilah stone. All the
internal saircas.s will also be erected of
solid stone, and into no part of the construction does wood or any other perishable
material enter. The lintels over the Interior
doors and windows will all all be of 'solid
concrete and the floors to all corridors aud
vaults and also to some of tho principal rooms
will bo of steel embedded in specially pre
pared fireproof concrete, or of solid biiok
arches. Iu every case, every pirtisle of
steel, either wlo*u used as beams or as
columns, is encased in this concrete. Practically every internal brick wall runs direct
from ihe basement to the highest part,
entirely avoiding any possibility nf settlement or decay from auy cause. The roofs
are to be covered with slate from Jervis
Inlet, used in small Bizes, aud diminishing
gradually towards the ridge. Slate as the
covering for the roof was ohoaen as being
nfinitely the best for this climate, vhilst
being as economical as the Inferior kinds
of roofs bo often used. Tho domes and all
flat roofe and ridges are of coppor, either
braziers or malleable as required. The
central dome is to be beautifully panelled and
enriched in copper and has a majestic figure
crowning the summit.
A good many special features enter into
the construction of the buildings throughout, which will form a practical example of
the best forms of using building materials,
and will be a valuable assistance and factor
in improving the general building art of the
proviuce. A good deal of interest is taken
in some ot the machinery being used, especially in the mortar mill, which is the first
used on this coast, aud almost the first on
the whole continent. This ingenious machine no'*- only docs its wotk faster and
cheaper than by hand labor, but the mortar
is also so excelleut that it becomes as hard
as the rock itself. The plasterers will also
use this machine in making their plaster,
which will thus have all the hardnesa and
durability of cement.
Generally the woods of the province have
been used throughout and a special effort is
being made both in selecting and designing
the woodwork to bring out their best capabilities, so that the building will show the
resources of the province in their  beat  and
most attractive form, both in regtrd to the
woods and the stone employed as well as
the elate, and the other materials which aie
almost entirely being obtained from the
province.
It is a great matter for congratulation
also that everyone of the contractors as well
as the architect are all from this province,
when it is considered that they obtained the
work after competition against all comers.
Judged in this manner, fairly upon their
merits, it proves that we have resident here
as clever aud as capable men as can be found
anywhere. Not only this, but it will^also be
the means of keeping nearly the whole of
the money expended on the buildings entirely within the province, as it has been
estimated that more than five-sixths of the
entire sum will he paid out in wages alone
iu the various branches of labor employed.
The drawings and quantities prepared for
the building were lately on exhibition for
the contractors and others estimating, aud
received a great amount of eulogy aud
praise on all sides. Mr. Rattenbury hus
been working for nearly a year upon the
drawings, which have all beeu done entirely
with his own hand, and comprise over
sixty large sheets all beautifully inked in
and colored and depicting every part of
the work in the most minute detail; whilst
lhe quantities form a largo printed volume,
giving the exact amount of eveiy particle of
material which will be required, tt8 well as
the amount  of labor  to be put upon them,
1
even down to the intersection of a plaster
mold. The quantities are profuBely illustrated with diagrams and sketches and are
so wonderfully exact and full of information
that several architects and contractors from
the east and from the States said nothing
approaching them had ever been issued before that they had ever seen. One good result of all this labor was that it removed
entitely all the guess work which so often
forms the ouly basis iu estimating on large
works, and contractors could tell to almoBt
a dollar the exact cost of the work and had
not to add tbe large amount for contingencies which would otherwise have heen necessary. There is no doubt that this reduced the cost of the building by some hundreds of thousands of dollars. It also rendered all questions of extras au impossibility and will preserve good feeling between
all parties throughout the coutiuuunoe of
the work. Work is now progretsing rapidly on the building and it is a question of a
short time only when the Legislative Assembly shall meet in a hall that is commensurate wiih its dignity and power as the representatives of the people.

The Uest Language For Telephoning.
The French language, it appears,
better adapted to the purpose of the tol*
phone than tho English.  It is stated tin
the large number of sibilant or hiss sy
lables in  English renders it a less eas;
and accurate means of communication,
Some English words are especially difficult of transmission by telephone.    Thel
word "soldier" is cited as one of these,!
Proper names frequently occur in the
midst of an otherwise perfectly audible
and intelligent conversation which the
ear cannot possibly catch.   These must|
be spelled out, involving delay.���Eleo*

The Lydians had gold coins at the close

The philosopher Schopenhauer says
Ihat a man's intellect may be measured

NEW   YEARS'   GREETING.
A short time more and 1893, with all its
joys and sorrows, hopes and disappointments, with all its manifold happenings by
land and sea, at home and abroad, all will
be of the past, and another milestone will
have been passed upon the great highway of
human progress.
Though the past year has been a disastrous one in business circles, especially io
the United States, yet Nanaimo has been
but in a minor degree affected by hard times
elsewhere, and has progressed through the
year in a manner that gives abundant promise for time yet to come. The steady increase of her staple industries and the constant increase to her new buildings show
the progress of the town, and there is every
reason to believe that during the coming
new year Nanaimo will make such progress
as uever before. And earnestly wishing
that the prosperity we thus hespeak for
Nanaimo may retch all. high and low, rich
and poor alike, Tut: TELEGRAM wishes its
readers in true goodfellowship, A Happy
Nkw Year
THE NEWS CONFIRMED.
The news of the slaughter of Captain Wil
son and his followers has beeu confirmed
Captain Wilson's detachment was surround
ed by Matabeles on the 8th of December!
and not a man of them escaped with his life.
We trust, that the Imperial Government wil
not interfere to hinder the South Africa:
Company from avenging this massacre, an*
putting an end forever to the power of L>
Bengula aud his savage and bloodthirst'
followers. The conduct of Mr. Gladstone|
in this affair will be watched with interest
it is to be hoped that he will uot repeat thel
extraordinary policy which he adopted after
the fight at Majuba Hill, and "scuttle out"
of Mashonaland as he did out of the Transvaal, like a whipped cur with his tail between his legs. The Radicals would uo
doubt back him in such a policy, but this
time we think Mr. Gladstone will not dare
to adopt it. His performance in the Transvaal shook British power in South Africa to
its centre. Were he to repeat it in the case
of the Matabeles he would destroy it altogether. And he would do more; he would
destroy his owu Government also; the British people would not stand it. This last
consideration, we think, will have much
more weight with Mr. Gladstone and his
followers thau lhe maintenance of British
power in South Afiica or anywhere else. It
may indeed be seriously called iu question
whether Mr, Gladstone has any feeliugs of
patriotism whatever, as that word is commonly understood. But he has a great love
of power, old as he is, and, we think, will
do nothing to imperil his position as Premier
and leader of the Government, which a
"scuttle out" policy if adopted io Mashonaland after the massacre of Wilson and Ins
men would beyond question seriously imperil. Perhaps, also, this consideration may
have some weight, with the Irish Nationalists iu hindering them from supporting a
policy of "scuttle out,,' if it should be proposed by Mr. Labouchere, or any of the
Had cals. It will he interesting to watch
what oouis't the Government will take in
the matter.
authorities are supported will be frightened
by the empty vaporings of political refugees,
who abuse the protection afforded them by
the laws of a foreign country to threaten at
a safe distance the authorities of their own
land, before whom they had fled in terror.
They may abuse at their eaBe from the safe
distance of London the chiefs of the French
republic, pa3t and present, but that is all
that they can do. The French authorities
and the middle class in France will simply
laugh at the threats of cowardly fugitives,
too afraid to stay at home, and theie dare
the authorities, whom they are not ashamed
to denounce and threaten from the safe distance of London. The French authotitieSj
would be deeerviug of the contempt which]
the anarchists pretend to feel for them, if
because of the threats of the latter they hesitated to bring to justice a cowardly bomb-
thrower like Vaillant, who has proved himself an enemy of all regulated government
aud justly forfeited his life to the laws. The
French authorities, we think, will not fail
to send him to the guillotine in spite of the
threats of his anarchist friends, and so make
his fate a warning to his fellows. As for
the British Government and the British people they ought to consider whether it is
right that England should be made a refuge
by the criminals of the continent, whence
they may safely threaten the authorities of
the countries from which they have fled,and
hatch plots against them. To us at least
this seems to be a gross abuse of the right, of
asylum, of which the continental govern'
ments may justly complain.
THE ANARCHIST MANIFESTO.
The manifesto prepared by the French I
anarchists in London for distribution in [
Paris, a copy of which has been obtained by
the agents of'he Associated Prets in London and cabled to this side for publication, |
exceeds in violence anything that has hitherto emanated even from the anarchists. ItI
it especially aimed at the bourgeois, thel
middle class of Paris, whom the anarchists I
seem to hate with a perfect hatred. Thel
object appears to be to terrify the bomgeoisl
and the authorities of the republic, which is I
mainly supported by them, and thus tol
hinder the condemnation and execution of I
Vaillant, the bomb-thrower. We do notl
believe, however, that the tactics of thel
French anarchis s in London who have!
issued this outrageouB manifesto will provel
successful. These men have practically!
proved that they are themselves afraid oil
the authorities whom they affect to deBpise.I
for they have lied from France to take I
refuge in Kngland, whoBe hospitality they!
are now abusing by issuing violent proclamations that they dare not print in France.
It is not likely that the authorities of the 1
latter country and the  class by   whom   the

THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL.
Victoria, Dec. 30.���[Special.]���In the
Admiralty Court to-day, before Hon. Mr.
Justice Crease, the case of Dunsmuir vs. the
British bark Harold was ended. The circumstances of the oase are that the Harold
went aground at Rice Rocks, after which
she was brought in to Esquimalt harbor by
the tug Lome, for which service the plaintiffs claim $6,00*0 salvage. On the other
hand the defendants contend that the captain of the Lome agreed to tow the bark in
for ��50, and in fact this is their defence,and
they base a great part of it on the admission
of the captain of the Lome, and his subsequent confirmation of it on arriving in Esquimalt harbor with the bark. In any event,
the defence allege that this is more a case of
towage than salvage, and point to the agreement in support of their contention. Judgment was reserved.

A continual evolution in keeping up with the times. Forecasting the future.

CLEVER LITTLE PEOPLE
Delight an Audience of their  Elders at
the Opera House.
The juvenile operetta at the Opera HouBe
last right was in every way a great success.
The programme, which was filled with
pretty varieties, started with the entrance
of "IiaiP,'' represented by Mr. Charles
Charlton, who had an excellent make-up
and sang an opening soDg which was
thoroughly appreciated. The next thing on
the list was "The Seasons," which was
charmingly rendered by the children; after
which the chorus, "Mrs. Pussy eleek and
fat,'' by a choir of little mites, was very
prettily-rendered,MasterGeruld Davis, octal
four yens delighting the audience with his
perfect hick of self consciousness. (herald
came forward again and sang a solo, receiving au unanimous encore and creating roars
of laughter by 'he speed with which he rau
from the descending curtain, which evidently frightened him. Miss Ethel Wolfe
also won the hearts ot the audience with
her clever singing. Some tabh an vivants
opened the next scene in which Miss Jeuuy
McAlpine made a very pretty sleeping
beauty and was brought to life by the usual
kiss, bestowed by Reuben Wallis with great
skill, The first' part of the programme
closed with "Fairy Tales," in which Miss
Mary Hngue made a charming fairy, singing and pirouetting very prettily.
Cinderella, Miss Etta Standard
and Miss Jenny McAlpine sang each
very sweetly a solo, Mr. Gub Bate doing
good business as Hick Whittington. The
second part of the programme opened with
a pretty children's chorus, "Trade Game,"
after which Mis* Nellie McAddie received a
well earned eucore for her solo. Some
amusing tableaux illustrating the life of
Cinderella were next gone through, after
which a lullaby was sung by the whole
chorus and a solo and duet by Miss Amy
Booth and Reuben Walls whose remarkably
sweet voice and good singing called forth a
double encore, having to repeat his song
three times before the audience were satisfied. The perfo.mauce closed with a chorus
"Little wieners,' and then the National
Anthem. The scenic effects were very
pretty and the costumes marvels of taste
and clever design. The names of
thoBe who took part are as follows:
Misses Amy and Edie Booth, Etta Staunard,
Annie and Eth>l Wolfe, Mary Hague.Jenny
McAlpine, Nelly Keddy, E. Perchet, Cassie
Bate, Gerty Bate, Netty McAdie, Emily
McGill, Masters Cyril Bate, ��herald Davis,
Bertie Perkins, Reuben Walls, Johnson Lee,
Johnny Neene, John Bennet, aud the Mesdames Davis and IVrkins.and Messrs, Charlton and Gub Bate. Mrs. Davis as with
everything she takes in hand made a complete succets of the operetta, and even the
smallest children owing to her careful training wore perfect in their parts. It is generally hoped that the operetta will be repeated at an early date.

can do as I please, and when I hear
their voices it will remind me she is not
around, for���Araminta's not going to

At so late an hour that Mr. Blodgett,
Miss H'*lsnii and Mrs. Merwin had almost abandoned hope of their coming
Mr. Flitters arrived with Mrs. Husslewell and a couple of faithful followers���
a man and a woman���whose duty it was,
as it subsequently appeared, to dolorously Biug lugubrious snugs and hymns
for  the  invoking of the   spirits.    The
medium was a short, fat woman, who
walked waddlingly, and over whose
flabby tissues a pale, watery-looking
skin seemed to be stretched tijjhtly.
Her manners were shy, and an expression of weariness, mingled with a little
anxiety, appeared in her soft brown
eyes. A circle was formed under Mr.
Fitter's direction about a large table in
the parlor, and Mr. Drummond. who
irrived at this juncture, was given a
place among the others. Lights were
turned put, and the two singers struck
up a spiritualistic hymn tune so depressing that it needed nothing but an
accordion accompaniment to have been
too much for human endurance. Miss
Hodson and Mr. Flitters made little
ineffective vocal clutches now and then
after the thread of saddening sound.
But the spirits came around with an
alacrity betokening a liking for that
sort of thing. "Spirit hands' administered gentle taps and pinches; books
flew to the table from distant parts of
the room, and minute sparks of light appeared. A gruff-voiced spirit, saluting
the company with "How!" ami announcing himself as De-ja-non-da-wa-ha, or
some such name, said he was once
a big warrior, took scalps and loved firewater, but had learned to like the palefaces, of whom he had met many in the
Summer-land. Then a spirit, speaking
in a female voice, talked sentimentally
of the sweetness and beauty of life ia
the Summer-laud, and, beiug asked who
she was, replied that she was known on
earth as Elizabeth, daughter of King
Henry VIII. of England. Mr Blodgett,
who was much astonished, wanted to
converse with her a little, but she wag
shoved aside by a spirit who called him-
Belf "Sambo," chattered a nonsense in a
negro dialect, and laughed loudlv,
���Yah! Yah! Yah!" After that the
spirits seemed to tie fairly tumbling
over each other in their eagerness to be
heard, but none had anything particular to s:tv when they successively got
the floor, and Mr. Blodgett observed
that, whether by reason of the etiquette
among them, or from some other cause,
only one at a time snoke.
When the lights were turned on again
for a brief intermission the medium appeared to lie much exhausted and very
thirsty. Mr. Flitters was jubilant. Never,
he said, had he participated in a more
satisfactory seance, one in which the
conditions were more perfect or the results more overwhelmingly convincing.
Mr. Blodgett seemed stunned. He had
never witnessed such things before,
and they astounded him. While the
medium rested Mr. Flitters and the
male vocalist extemporized a sort of
cabinet in one corner of the parlor by
draping a curtain across it between two
picture frames. On a chair in that seclusion Mrs. Husslewell seated herself.
One gas-jet was turned down to a point
and till other lights were extinguished.
The preparations were complete for the
main event of the evening, to which all
that had gone before was mere preliminary���the calling back of Araminta
from the Summer land,
Agaiu the singers grieved tho sense of
hearing. Upon the cessation of their
lamentable wails ensued a long period
of prof ound nnd impressive silence.
"Oh! dear! I do feel so nervous!"
exclaimed Miss Hodson, with a feeble
giggle.
'"Sh!" said Mr. Flitters, in a low tone
of reproof, adding to the singers, "Another song, please."
Once more they smote with pain th**
auditory nerve*; of the company, but ore
they hatl massacred more than Ihe firs*
verse of their song, the cruel invocation
seemed to have its effect, and they eeas
ed.
A patch of semi luminous fog could be
seen gathering into the vague outline*
of a   human  form   near   the   curtain.

increased; its thin, strongly-marked
features filled out and changed, until at
length it stood plainly revealed, tin*
astral form of the medium, altered only
from her ordinary fleshy personality in
the expression of mingled terror and
rage that replaced the accustomed weak

sitting on the chair in a deep trance,
from which she passed immediately into
horrifying epileptic convulsions.
"What's the matter with you*;" demanded Mr. Blodgett of his friend, the
lawyer, drawing him aside, while the
others were lending what aid thevcould

"No wonder. I have just realized thnt

no more, for I assure yon that, so far as
I am concerned, there will be no more

W FOUR PLOTTERS.
By Jerome K. Jerome
I think that of all the wet and stormy
evenings that came to us during that
lis rial summer of 188���, the wettest and
Suoi'.uiest was the Saturday when Brown,
Mac 'haugnas.-y, and Jephson paitf their
first visit to me on my houseboat.
Brown and MacShaugtiassy came
jown together in the afternoon t-Tephson
sent word that he would follow on in
the evening) and as soon as they had
iiried themselves and changed their
eh*'lies (for some of mine) and had had
some tea we settled clown to work.
We four were collaborating in the
writing of a novel and Brown proposed
that we should occupy ourselves until
JephSOn's arrival witli plots.
"Let each of us," stud he, "sit down
rind sketch out a plot. Then, afterwards,
we can compare them, and select the
best."
This we proceeded to do. The plots
themselves I forget; but I remember
that at the subsequent judging each
man selected his own, and became so in-
i.*.,nant at Hie bitter criticism to which
it was subjected by the other two. that
iie tore it up*and, for tiie next half
hour, we sat and smoked in silence.
There was a time when I was very
young, when I yearned to know other
people's opinion of me and all my works;
ii..,. my chief aim is toavoid hearing it.
In i hose days, had any one told me there
was naif a line about myself iu a news-
puper I should have tramped London to
obtain that publication. Now, when I
see a column headed with my name, I
hurriedly fold up the paper and put it
away Irom me, subduing my natural
curiosity by saying to myself, "Why
should you? It will only upset you for
the day."
In my cnbhood I possessed a friend.
Other friends have come into my life
t ice���very dear and precious friends���
but they have none or them Ik* n ;*>me
qu..e what this friend was. Bee ise he
wss my lii-st friend and we lived together in a world that was much bifoer than
this world���-more full of joy and grief;
unci in that world we loved and bated
* per than we love and hate in this
smaller world that I have come to dwell
.a since.
1; ��� also had the very young man's
craving to be criticised, and we made it
��� ar custom to oblige each other. We
i i not know that what we meant when
*.,* .skril for "criticism" wus appreciative encouragement. We thought that
we were strong���one does at the begin
ningof the battle���and that we could
i ,*,ii-to hear the truth told about ourselves.
Accordingly each one pointed out to
the other his errors, and this task kept
,. both so busy that we had never time
to a\ a word of praise t** one another.
I hut we each had a nigh opinion of the
,1 n, r's talents I am convinced, but our
huads were full of silly saws. W said
to ourselves: "There are many who
will praise a man: it is only his friend
Who will tell him of his faults." Also
we said: "No.uiat sees his own shortcomings, bul when these are pointed out
fo hi HI by an >th *���' a ��� is grutet ul aud
pro eeds to in* ml I-   ill."
As we came t** know the world better
we learned tin* fallacy of tbvse ideas,
i nt then ii was too lute, for the mischief
linil been done. V> hen one of ns had
,v 1111���'��� i any thing he Wi Id feud it to
,.. other, aud when he ban finished he
would say. "Now tell mi'what you ihiuk
of it���frankly and as a friend."
These were his words. But his
thoughts, though ho may not have known
them, were:
"Tell me it is clever and good, my
frii nd, even if you do not think so. The
world is very cruel to those who  have
  wi couqucred  it.   and. (hough  we
keep a careless lace, our yon., . .carts
.,:���* scored with wrinkles. Often we
grow weary and faint-hearl ed. Is it
.,,., so, my friend*; No one has faith in
ns, "ml iti our dark bouts we doubt ourselves You are my comrade. You
now what of myself 1 have put into
II,is thing that to others will be but an
idle half hour's reading. Tell me it is
good, my friend. Put a little heart into
,ue. I pray yon."
But lit*'other, full of the lust of criticism, w.ich is civilization's substitute
for cruelty, would answer more in
frankness thnn in Men i ihip Then he
who had written would flush angrily
UUd SCOl'nful words would pass.
i Ine evening he read me a [ lay be had
written. There was much tnat wag
good in it, but there were also faults
; here are in some plays), and i nose I
.-. ,/.ed upon and made merry over. I
could hardly have dealt out to the piece
more unnecessary biiternes* had I been
