Paris, Dec. 20. ���Before the Chamber of
Deputies adjourned thirf evening for the
holidays, they agreed to a supplementary
credit of 46,100,000 francs for the general
state service. It is a grave feature of ihe
situation that ihe ministers will l.e required
to make up on the next budget a deficit of
almost 75,000,000 francs. It is not the depression of trade alone, but a gross miscalculation of current receipts that has furced
the Government to ask twice for supplementary vote" That M. Burdeau, the new
finance minister, has the capacity to meet
the emergency is doubtful. The first proposal made by him as minister received a
check in the chamber to-day, when the deputies rejected the bill lo authorize the city
"f Paris to tax champagues, genuine or artificial, 50 centimes a bottle. As Paris consumes 1,200,000 bottles of champagne
annually the tax would bring the treasury
600,000 francs. The whole plan was suppressed, however, without debate.
The laws for the repression of anarchism
seem to be proving effectual. Anarchist
suspects have disappeared swiftly from the
city and the tone of the socialist and anarchist press, cowed by the prospect of
prosecution or suppression, has been moderated greatly. Several pronounced anarchist
sheets, among them the notorious La Revolte,
have ceased appearing. 1'ere Penard has
published a notice that hereafter its editors
will ne obliged by prudence Lo abstain from
making apologies for bomb throwers, as the
offiecrj could step in uuder the new law and
punish all concerned. "Hereafter," says
the fire eating editor, pathetically, "we shall
not be free lo express all the opinions that
we advocate." Sebastian Faure, once a
Karl Marx socialist aud a follower of Jules
Guesde, but now a thoroughbred anarchist,
Bhoned plainly a few nights ago what a
blight had fallen upon anarchist oratory.
Lecturing in St, Etieune, to a crowd of
comrades, among them Ravachol's brother,
he refrained from his former ;;ehemence of
Ianguuge aud contented himse.i with talking
vaguely of the anarchists' aim to "chauge
the life of pain into a life of pleasure."
Finally he called upon the police commis-
siouary and his other hearers to testify to
bis moderation.
Many reports are heard as regards the
prospect of international measures against
the anarchists. The exact truih, as ascertained from official sources, is as follows:
Spain and Austria sent a circular note to
the powers simultaneously, but not in concert, to ask whether international measures
against anarchists might not be discussed in
a conference. No specific suggestions or
proposals were made in these notes. Fug-
laud and Germany declined to consider the
mutter, Belgium offered her co-operation
only ou the condition that a definite plan be
proposed in advance. Austria then dropped
the subject. Spain, however, reopened ihe
matter in fresh communications, suggesting
treaty changes which would provide for
quick extradition, a leBS conn Heated process of expulsion and more careful international Burveillance ot suspects. M. St.
Merry has yielded to the prayers and argument of Vaillant's mistress and has promised to defend him.
Deputies Jules Guesde, and Antoine
Jeurde will take advantage of the Parliamentary recess to spread the propaganda of
socialism. Each will stump ��he large cities.
Government agents will follow them and
should either one overstep the limits sot by
the new laws, he will be instantly arrested.
M. Clemenceuu, the radical leader, has
tried to s'art a navy scare by publishing a
sensational note in La Justice newspaper.
To-day he quotes the declaration made by
the Euglish ministers iu the Commons last
night as to the supciiority of Britaiu's fleet,
adding that a government inquiry
must be made at once lo ascertain
the reasons ol England's opparent confidence.
The Marine de la France, Uie organ of
tht* navy, has given some ban;.-: for Clemen-
oeau's agitation by maintaining that
France's torpedo boata in the Mediterranean
are faulty and ciumot he worked as planned.
The same journal says that the newest iron-
olad, the Magenta, which cost 2,500,000
francs, inclines at an angle of eight degrees
when turned, even in a dead calm. In view
of this defect, Admiral Kieunier ordered
the officers never to turn her when going at
full speed. Wlien at anchor, the Magenta
is ineliued at an angle of five degrees by the
moving of her guns to one side.
The   French    Senate    and   Chamber   of
Deputies were prorogued   to-day.    The d

He Tells The Truth to  Lizzie  Bartlett���
Wishes to Hake His Confession to The
Judge, and  Claims  That he Killed in
Marshall in Self-Defence.
Victoria,   Dec.   20.���[Special.]    Albert
Stroebel, the   convicted   murderer of   John
Marshall of Sumas prairie, to-day confessed
himself guilty of the crime which a chain of
conclusive circumstantial evidence had fastened upon him.    The   truth   was first told to
Lizzie  Bartlett, the   doomed man's   Bweet-
heart, during the early  part  of  this  afternoon while she  was   visiting   him   in   jail.
Later in the day he s-3nt for  barrister Morrison, who had conducted the  defence,  and
repeated his story to   him.    When  a  press
representative afterwards called  at the jail
he found Stroebel "not quite ready to talk,"
as   he   expressed   it.     He   had,   he   said,
laid   all    the  facts before  his lawyer, and
Morrison had promised to think the  matter
over   and see if an  opportunity  could  be
obtained  for him to   make   his confession
to the judge.     It was  sugges'ed   that  the
time for this had in all  probability  passed,
and that it would have been   better to have
told   the   truth   before.    "I guess  it don't
much   matter,"  was   Stroebel's   rejoinder.
'I know I did not murder  him if I did kill
him; I shot him in self defence."
Then in fragmentary sentences he proceeded to give the headings of the story he
iiad told to Lizzie Bartlett and to Mr. Morrison. "I don't want to go all over it now,"
he explained, "I want to tell it in court,
and if I don't get a chance to do that, why,
to-morrow I'll give the whole thing. They
were all off about the robbery; money had
nothing to do in the matter. Old Marshall
threatened to kill me, and tried to do it,
and I shot him. The trouble started
at the dinner table about Lizzie
Bartlett. He wanted to marry her,
and when I told him we were engaged
he got furious and threatened to shoot me.
There was a little axe there aud he made to
strike me wiih it. The axe, when I dodged,
struok the side of the door, and when he
went to come at me again I shot him. We
were not more lhan from here to there,"
(pointing to th*? wall p.bput four feet away).
"Marshall was a man of very savage temper. He was a Portuguese. I was friends
with him at the time, but we had trouble
before and 1 knew what temper he had. Of
course I was a fool not to tell the truth before."
When Lizzie Bartlett returned to her
hotel after her first visit to Sdrotbel to-day
she gave out thu lines of what he had told
her. This was that he had had a quarrel
with Marshall over her, and Marshall
threatened to kill him, whereupon he fired
the fatal shot. She had not, she said, bo-
lieved at any time that Stroebel did the
deed, and the confession from his own lips
came as a horrible surprise. Stroebel's cool-
iiees has not yet deserted him. He conversed calmly to-day, discussing his fate
with apparent unconcern, and manifested no
emotion when after a long conversation he
bade Lizzie Bartlett good bye in the evening.
Albert Stroebel, whose voluntary confession of the murder of John Marshall at
Sumas, as outlined above, is of Swedish
descent, and is nearly 21 years oi ago.
On the morning of lhe 20th of \pril last,
John Marshall, an elderly man livio^ alone
at Sumas City was found by John Airrmurt,
a neighbor, lying upon the floor of his house,
dead. The evening before, Stroebel had
been with him, ami later was seen walking
along the railway track near Marshall's
house, presumably returning from a fishing
expedition. A damaging letter Stroebel
wrote was picked up iu the hotel at Suinas,
and upon this, and the circumstances
of his whereabouta the evening
bsfore being doubtful, he was arrested
He was with a friend named Eyerly, arrested as an accessory, brought to Westminster and placed on trial there. Eyerley
was released on a nolle prosequi being entered in his case. After a full week's trial
the jury failed to agree, there bring purely
circumstantial evidence alone against
the prisoner. The jury being discharged, a cha-jge of veuue to Victoria was
granted, and a fresh jury sworn in. The
trial lasted eleven days. Put ing its progress it was shown that bullets fired from
Stroebel's revolver were identical with the
one found in the murdered man's neck, in
the markings they received from the rust in
iis barrel. The evidence of many witnesses
corresponded so nearly with thema'erial circumstances noted by the officers of the
Crown, together with Stroebel's o*��*n words
upon arrest, aud in talkiog with Kvrly in
jail, that in spite of a determined tight
offered by the defence, conducted by Mr.
Aulay Morrison, a well known Westminster
advocate, the jury, as recorded iu yesterday's TBLIGRAM, brought in a verdict of
gull*** las' Monday, after perhaps tbe most
protracted trial ever held in the province.
Hi- Ljrdship Justice Walkem, before
whom the case was tried, addressing the
prisoner, before pronouueiug sentence, said
that he did not want to say one
unkind word to him, and though other
judges might indulge in a lecture he felt
thai he could not trust himself to do so.
After the verdict of the jury ho had but one
altern itivf���to sentence him to death. The
sentence of the law was that he be executed
that d ��y six weeks.
"Y* ti have wonderful nerve," His Lird-
shipContinued, "I am sutp ised at it. You
must ii**t 1*1 .me the jury. They have been
endeavoring to do what iB right, anil wheu
the judge ou the bench agrees with them,
they may consider themselves absolved from
auy responsibility."
The formal seutence of execution by banging ou Tuesday, the SO'.h day of January,
was then passed upon the prisoner
Stroebel, took his sentence very calmly,
without betraying the slightest emotion.
After being removed from the court room he
declared with oaths that he did not care.

Latest Developments.
Toronto, Dec. 20.���The latest developments in the Williams double murder case,
discovered at Port Credit, go to show that
it was not the hired man who committed
the crime as at first supposed. Hii movements have been traced since he quitted the
employment of the murdered man last Wednesday. Suspicion now rests on a young
Englishman who, on Thursday night called
at the residence of William Mackay, a
farmer living a half mile east of William's
farm. 	
Illegal Committal of   Lunatics.
Fergus Falls, Dec. 20���Mrs. M. J.

has asked the Bupreme court for a re-hearing.
Villainous Treatment.
Birminiiiiam, Ala., Dec. 20���For several
years past the people of the hamlet of
Greeuhill, Pike county, have looked with
suspicion on three women who lived in a
hut in their settlement. Where they came
from nobody knows The women called
themselves Sis, Bess and Lizzie, and said
they were sisters. A few days ago the
older men of the town met and decided to
rid the neighborhood of them, on the ground
that their presence was demoralizing. Accordingly the Black Cappers' society was
formed and went in a body to the hut,
dragged out the three women and Hogged
them unmercifully, after which the women
were told to leave the country. It is reported that one was fatally injured.
A Gambling Hell Robbed.
Chicaco, Dec. 20.���At four o'clock today four men entered the gambling house of
Condon, Chun k Morgan at No. 14 Quincy
street. The dealers were counting up and
there were several loungers present. The
quartette left two other men at the foot of
the stairway to prevent intrusion. The last
man in closed the door and Btood with his
back to it. His companions drew their
revolvers and ordered "hands up." The
robbers had the drop and looked determined
enough to stop at nothing. Keeping the
barrels of their pistols well up the three
moved from table 'o table and took the
bank notes and gold and silver which lay in
plain sight. Over 84,000 waB taken. There
is no trace of the robbers.
A Sequel to a Burgoyne Bay Drama
San Francisco, Dec. 20.���The young
woman, Carolina Foster, who was shot by
her lover, J. A. Rudiuski, last Saturday,
was last evening identified by James Lun-
ing, of Burgoyne Bay, B. C, as the runaway
wife of John A. Foster, a well to do rancher
of that place, who eloped about two years
ago with a former admirer, who took advantage of Foster's absence from
home to press his attentions upon
her. After living together for some
time the man deserted her and went
back to Burgoyoe Bay alone. Her
maiden name was Hurl and she is the
daughter of a lancher of considerable
means, well known in that section. After
her lover abandoned h': he went to Arizona, where she resided for some time, and
subsequently returned to S.in Frinciaoo,
where she made the acquaintance of Undin-
ski. When they separated she went to
work as an assistant in a bath establishment here and when shot she was preparing
to go on the stage as a contortionist. She
was resting a little easier this morning but
the doctor fears she cannot recover.
British Interests to be Protected.
New York, Dec. 20.���A Montevideo
cable says : The Herald's correspondent in
Rio de Janeiro sends word that the commander of the British squadron in the bay
has received express orders from London to
protect British interests in Brazil aud to
disregard the blockade of the British port
threatened by the rebel fleet. The Brazilian Government has officially designated a
new landing place for foreign vessels called
the Plaza Harmonia. The Aquidaban and
the Esperanza have left lsla Grande for
some unknown cause. Some surmise that
they have gone to meet the Nictheroy,
others think they are seeking to keep out of
the dynamite cruiser's way.
Another cable says: News has been received here from Rio that another battle
has juBt been fought here between the insurgent fleet and the loyal forces, the result of
which is doubtful. The rebel forces are said
to be steadily drawing nearer to the capital
from the south. The ship agents of the

Among garments of special Import are
those for riding, boating, yachting, lawn
tennis, the bicycle, climbing, hunting and
now golf. Let ho one conceive that these
costumes are interchangeable, except perhaps a lawn tennis oostume may take part
in golf. On the contrary, each has some
special distinguishable quality fondly con-
ceive*l to be essential.
The colors in almost all dresses for athletic sports are limited to cream, blue,
brown anil gray. The assimilation of these
with the browns and grays of the earth
and the blue o'f the sky is chosen with that
inherent sense of the fitness of things that
even barbarous nations share. It is only
in the cruder states of civilization that we
choose colors harshly and inappropriately.
A writer in the New York Sun, whose observations of fasli ions among utliletes are recorded iu the foregoing, illustrates a bicycle costume that deserves attention. This
ii of havana brown cloth, with short jacket
���pening over a shirt of pink. The sleeves
ire of consideration, being long and full
with culls.
Parisians have adopted bicycling in a
much moro thorough way than our Amerioan women. The French girl who rides
a bicycle does not attempt to retain
the long skirt, but she wears a stylish
knickerbocker suit of some kind, and women riders have become so numerous on the
broad, smooth avenues of the outskirts of
Paris that no one pays any particular attention to them.
While the nominal pay of a British private is a shilling a day, or 24 cents, he really does not receive much more than half
that in actual cash,

THE PREMIER'S VISIT.
To-morrow the Nanaimo Board of Trade
will tender a reception and lunch to Premier Davie upon his arrival here to attend
the Poultry Show. It had been arranged
to entertain the Premier to-day but as will
be seen by copies of telegrams published in
another column the matter has been postponed. We trust that the citizens generally will join the Board of Trade in
extending to the Premier, Finance Minister
Turner and Lieutenant-Governor Dewdney
a hearty welcome on their arrival here. Mr.
Davie and Mr. Turner will remain in the
city at least two days. This will give the
Board of Trade and others a splendid opportunity to lay before the visiting ministers
what the city is in need of. Those desiring
to assist in the matter can obtain full particulars from Mr. Marcus Wolfe, room 11,
Johnslon block.
statement of the intentions of the Government with regard to the navy was made by
the Prime Minister, nor did he admit that
the navy required strengthening. He
argued that it was in fact much stronger
than the combined navies of France and
Russia. Great Britain at this moment, he
said, had in battleships .ri57,000 tons of:
fighting material, against France and,
Russia's combined 318,000 tona. Great
Britain had nineteen battleships and France
and Russia only fourteen. In war ships of
all claBseB Great Britain was stronger than
any three powers. In every class of war
ship.said the Premier,the Brilish had larger
and more powerful ships than the French
or Russian. It was therefore absurd to describe the present as a moment of danger.
As to the fulure, .Mr. Gladstone added that
there would be additions to the navy, that
the Admiralty was engaged in considering
plans for strengthening it and tint when
the opportune time arrived the House
would learn of these plans.
This was all the information that his opponents could get out of the Grand Old
Man. It is not an easy task to draw Mr.
Glad8toneoutonanysubjecton which he does
not deBire to be communicative. It iB however, satisfactory to know that Great Brit-
ian'a naval position is so strong, as compared with that of her rivals, and that there
ia no present occasion for uneasiness, notwithstanding alarming statements that have
beeu published in the London press regarding the alleged weakness of the navy, more
especially of the Mediterranean Bquadron.
We have no doubt that if her enemies force
war upon her they will find the British fleet
aB of old, terrible upon the seas, an enemy
not lightly to be encountered.

It is announced that Judge Fraser, of the
Supreme Court of New Brunswick, will be
the next Lieutenant-Governor of that province. Iu this Canada of ours the lawyers
aa a rule get most of the good things going,
and in those cases where they are not given
to them, they generally manage to help
themselves. It ia a good thing to be a
promiuent lawyer on either Bide of politics
in Canada.
THE STROEBEL   MURDER   TSIAL.
The second trial of Albert J. Stroebel for
the murder of John Marshall, a farmer,
near Huntingdon in this Province, on the
19th of April laat, was concluded on Tues
day evening a' Victoiia. The jury sat
ele%*eu days listening to evidence and the
addresses of counsel for and against the
prisoner. The jury returned a verdict of
guilty against Stroebel, who was sentenced
to be hanged on the 30th of January. At
hia first trial, which took place about a
month ago at New Westminster, the judge
at the concision of the trial told the jury
that they had done their duty, and added
that if he had been one of their number he
would have come to the aame conclusion
that they did. A new trial was then asked
for and an application waa made to have the
caae tried in Victoria. The prisoner waa
ably defended hy Mr. Aulay Morrison
a rising young lawyer of the New Westminster bar while Attorney-General Davie
took charge of the case for the Crown. It
may be mentioned that this waB perhaps
one of the most difficult cases to work up
that haa ever come before the courta of this
Province. The Attorney-General spared no
effort in preparing his oaae, aud considering
the fact that it was based in irely on circumstantial evidence and the later developments aince the conviction of the priaoner,
all the officeis of the law who were intrusted with the matter deserve the greatest
credit. After the trial many were disposed
to believe the pi i-*oner innocent and much
sympathy has been expres8ed for him.
However, those who watched the caae
closely and the position taken by the
presiding judge, Mr. Justice Walkem,
were convinced that Stroebel waa the
right man. A judge rarely errs in
hia convictions regarding the guilt or innocence of a prisoner. Whether Stroebel in
his confession yeaterday told the whole
truth or not is difficult to determine, but
there is not the slightest doubt
made a clean breast of the whole buaineas at
the outset his chances for life at least would
have been fairly good. Stroebel is not yet
twenty-one years old.
Aid. E. Quennell has accepted the requisition of the ratepayers asking him to allow
his name to be placed in nomination for tbe
mayoralty. Aid. Quennell has been a good
councillor and would give equal satisfaction
as mayor. It is to be hoped he will be elected by acclamation. Aa there are a number
of the pre8ent aldermen who do not iuteud
to offer themselves for re-election it now remains for the ratepayers to see that suitable
men are elected to fill their places. It is
now but a short time before election day,
consequently a move iu tiiis direction should
be made at once.
We notice that the Toronto Empire in its
issue of Monday last publishes a dispatch
from London contradicting the statement
made that the conference which Hon. Mr.
Bowel had arranged for between representatives of Canada aud the Australian colonies,
to discuss trade questions with a view to establish reciprocity between the Dominion
aud Australia, had fallen through. It has
not fallen through. The conference will
take place iu June, w^co the Premier of
Queensland will visit Ottawa aud afterwards
proceed to London. It is to be hoped that
the reault of the conference will be satisfactory both  to  Australia and to Cauada.

mediately made to the navy, aud that the
House demanded to be informed whit the
intentions of the Government were in regard
to strengthening it. Lord George complained that the British nation, as compared
with others, remained almost stationary.
Great Britain's former distinction as a aea
power, able to hold her own against an
European coalition, he said, had gone. If
the Britiah fleet was to be kept in condition
to meet the combined fleets of any two nations large expenditures would be necessary.
Lord George Hamilton did not desire that
the House should consider his motion a
party one, with a view to censuring the
Government. His object was to give the
latter an opportunity of explaining its
policy to the House, and also to elicit a
statement calculated to a(lay the anxiety of
tho country.
~If such was indeed Lord George Hamil
ton's purpose in aubmitting his motion he
cannot be congratulated ou his success. Mr.
Gladstone in his reply treated the motion
strictly as a party one, having for its object
to inflict censure on  the Government.    N

WELLINGTON ITEMS.
Wellington Licensing Court.
The court sat yesterday, Messis. Bryden,
Matthews and Matheson, justices presiding, to hear the adjourned application of
Chas. Horth for a transfer of his license
from his present premises to new premises
some 50 yards distant. F. McB Young
appeared for Chas. Horth. C. H. Beevor
Potts opposed the application on behalf of
some of the residents of Korthtield. Chief
���onstable Stewart, A. A. Richardson, H.
McAdie and George H. Johnson were called
in support of the application, lo show the
number of bedrooms in the new and
old houses respectively, showing that there
were more bedrooms iu the new than in the
old house, and a better approach to them.
In cross-examination the mujority admitted
there was not a substantial difference between the new and old buildings. At the
conclusion of the application Mr. Heevor
Potts submitted that the magistrates had
no jutisdiction to grant thu application:
that there was no provision in the Licensing
Acts for a transfer of a license to run one
house to another, aud that the application
was not for a transfer from one person to
another of au already licensed house, as contemplated by the amending act of 1S89, hut
was virtually an application for a new
license, which must be done by the petition
of two-thirds of the residents of the district
it the usual way, aud not as was doue in
this case, by merely a fifteen days' notice,
Mr. Young iu reply contended that he
was not called upou to give notice at all hut
to save further questions hereafter he had
served the magistrates with a notice. As
regards the amending act no question arose
under it but both he and his partner had
fully considered the manner in which the
application was made and they were satisfied they had taken the pr per oourse and
quoted in support the transfer of Parrot's
license at the Half Way House to the present premises across the road, known as the
Half Way hotel.
Mr. Stewart here stated tha- Mi*. Parrot's
case hud no bearing on this case. Theo'd and
new house were both owned and occupied
by him and it was expressly uuderst od
that he should make .. substantial improvement in his premises which had   been  done.
The matiisirutes consul!ed together and
then announced that they had i-e-iwda
letter from the Attorney General in reply to
the qmstion of their authority to gtano a
transfer from old to new premises as asked
by Mr. Horth and were advised by him that
there was nothing in the act giving them
authority to make such a transfer. I he application was therefore dismissed on the
following grounds: I, that the magistrates
had no authority under the act to entertain
the present application; 2, that in any
case there waa no material difference between the old building for which the license
was originally granted and the new building
to which it was proposed to transfer the
license.
The post olliee at East   Wellington    will
be closed up at the end of the week and the I
mail thereafter sent to Northfield.
The probability that Rev. Mr. Flinton, of
Wellington, would be appointed to succeed
the late Rev. M. C. Brown in the charge of
the parish of Cedar Hill, has been justified
by that gentleman's appointment. Rev.
Mr. and Mrs. Flinton are now preparing to
remove to their new field of labor and of
usefulness, the former entering upon his
pastorate with the new year.
Two drunken siwashes and a half-breed
caused some excitement at Northfield yesterday morning when Constable MoLe* d proceeded to arrest them. One of ihe siwashes
aud the half-breid got away. Handing the
oneo\er'o an ou-looker he started after
the otheis. The siwash took off his C"at and
shoes and took to the bush. The constable
took a short cut and overtook him. The
half breed got away altogether.

THE BRITISH NAVY.
Close of the Debate on Hamilton's Motion
That the  Governmont   Should Inform
the House of Its Intentions.
London, Dec. 20.���In continuation of the
debate in the British House ot Commons on
Lord George Hamilton's motion, as reported I
yesterday; after Mr. Balfour had finished
his speech, showing precedent why the
Covernment should comply with the request
for information contained in the motion, Sir
Charles Dilke, the advanced Radical member for the Forest of I).an division of
Gloucestershire, was the next speaker. He
heid that the supremacy oi th. Britibli uavy
was no longer beyond question. The French
navy, he said, was superior to the British as
regards rapidity of organization and mobilisation, though it was inferior in materials of
construction. The government ought to
consider that Englaud would be unable to
count upon any outside help in the event of
a single handed war.
Vice-Admiral Edward Field, the Conservative member for the Eastbourne division of Sussex, said that besides being able
to cope with any tw * nations combining
their fleets, Great Britain must provi ie
squadrons for the defence ol her foreign
stations. In cruisers, he said, Great Bri'ain
was far behind other powers.
Sir U Kay-Shuttleworth, Liberal member for the Ciitheroe distriot of Lancashire
and secretary to the Admiralty, said that lhe
pre.-ent was not toe time to make a statement of the Government's intentions
in a fragmentary form. If the House
confided iu the Government tho House
might reBt assured that tho Government would not be behind in their du'y.
The Government hail already haHeueil the
construction of torpedo boais aud destroyers,
of which there would be 42 at the close of
the financial year. The building of the barbette ships, the M jestic and Magnificent.,
had been delayed in order to ascertain
whether any leesou iu construction could he
learued from the illfated Victoria. The
Governm* nt was
ing to indicate that they recognized the
gravity of the situation. And yet the
emergency was far greater, aud the danger
nearer than was the case in 1884. Iu concluding Mr. Chamberlain urged that whenever any of the allied nations built three
warBh*'ps, Great Britain ought to build five,
and whenever any build one cruiser Great
Britain ought to build two.
Sir William Harcourf, the Chancellor of
the Exchequer, declartd that th" Admiralty
was taking all necessary steps to maintain
the supremacy of the British navy. Toe
Prime Minister, he said, in comparing the
British navy with other navies, had mentioned the year 1897 because all vessels now
building in different countries would then
be completed. Great Britain would then
have 22 first-class warships, France wonld
have 15 and Russia would have 9. When
the Government declared the situation satisfactory they repeated the opinions of the
experts of the Admiralty.
Mr. Goschen, Liberal Unionist, who was
Chancellor of the Exchequer in Lord Salisbury's last administration, followed Sir
William Harcourt. He spoke amid constant
cries of "Divide, divide."
Mr. Gladstone's amendment to the effect
that the House refuses to countenance Lord
George Hamilton's motion, was oar lied by **.

of keeping pace with the naval expendt-
turesof foreign nations and plans to that end
had occupied tho atteotion of the Admiralty
or some time.
Mr. Chamberlain, the leader of the Liberal-Unionists, twitted tho previous speaker
with avoiding every vital point of the question. The Prime Minister's contention that
the navy was more than sutlicient, said Mr.
Chamberlain, was not accepted by anybody
deserving to be regarded as an authority.
If war was declared to-morrow the navy
would be compelled to cut and run. France
and Italy know this perfectly. Mr. Chamberlain taunted the Government with evading great measures. They wanted no
questions, he said, they wauled merely
a blank check. Was it wise for the
House of Commons so to confide iu any
Government'.' If war occurred, unless
Great Britain was prepared for it, tens
of millions of pounds would not prevent
her defeat. He greatly feared that the estimates would prove, altogether inadequate,
inasmuch as 'he Government had said uoth-1
week at Cloverdale looking up coal indications. After making several tests a good
seam was indicated on Captain Bridgem >u's
propirtv, running through the western portion of Robinson's ranch. The experis returned to Westminster Thursday evening
and say they are well satisfied with their
examination. Captain Bridgeman intends
following up the test at an early date. ���*Columbian.

Aid. Quennell then came forward and distributed the certificates and prizes, after
which Mr. Keith, M. P. P., after remarking
on the pleasure that he took in viewing the
many happy young faces around, was sure
that with theseepportunitieB they would become good and handsome women and was
sure that, notwithstanding the remarks
about Nanaimo passed by some of the
papers, the children of Nanaimo reflected as
much credit on their native town as any on
the coast, and finished by wishing the whole
assembly a happy Christmas. Dr. Good
hoped the children would use the many advantages that they had. He then made
some amusing remarks about ChristmaB
festivities hoping that all present would use
moderation in their enjoyments. Mr. Hirst
also said a few words expressing his sorrow
that there had not been more promotions
into bis school and the evident reason.
Aid Quennell remarked that he regretted
being the only one of i he trustees able to be
present and said that he had little to add to
the excellent advice already given by the
previous speakeis, but he hoped they would
when at school, work well so that tho*je responsible for the school expenses would appreciate the work done.
The National Anthem was then Bung and
the school dismissed.
In the South Ward School the breaking

A Good Opportunity.
If you want to secure a useful Christmas
present you cannot do better than attend
Harry Forester's auction sale on Saturday
next. BeBides a number of articles suitable
for Christmas presents there will also be
offered, entirely without reserve, a piano by
Gordon, a Wanner sewing machine, a fine
black walnut table, a Duchesa cooking
range and an exceptionally fine shot gun.
As Mr. Forester has received peremptory
instructions to close out consignments at
any cost it will be seen that this presents a
splendid opportunity to get a good bargain

Those who appreciate good things, not

their wants, while Mesdames Good, Durrant
and Bate, jr., presided over the sale of toys,
fancy work and prettily decorated and useful articles. The posts of cashier and chef

SCIENTIFIC AMUSEMENT.
Two Pretty Experiments With Soap Bubbles and Carbonic Acid Gas.
Here is a way of preparing carbonic acid
gas, which is at tho disposal aud within
the power of everybody: Take a large,
deep glass, a sod;v water glass say, and introduce therein the beak of a flask of seltzer water. Apply an intermittent pressure
on the lever, which will cause a series of
little jets (ir squirts of seltzer water to fall
Into the beaker. Suck up thiswater through
a straw, leaving only at the bottom of the
glass a layer of water about an inch deep.
By emptying the seltzer as described,

at the bottom in virtue of its greater density, for it is well known that carbonic acid

Now cover your glass with a saucer to prevent the escape of the gas by diffusion in
the air, and we are ready to execute tbe
following experiments with ^cmu bubbles:
With the aid of a straw split in four for
about a couple of Inches at its end and
turned back on the body of tho straw at

the other hand, another bubble, placed iu

and remain there.
If you will slowly let your bubble sink
upon the cushion of carbonic acid gas, it
will rest upon it, and you will shortly witness quite a curious phenomenon. Your
bubble will grow und grow in volume most
mysteriously, meanwhile augmenting in

and hanging this day."
"You were seen to strike him downf'

"You cannot mean���"
"That he was with Lanra Kingdon,

it."
"He was with Laura?"
"He was so���on the platform of the
railway station. She saw me stab him,
and ran skTeeling away. I took to the
tunnel, and managed t*> dodge pursuit;
but, for sure, she'll put the police on the
track of him that killed her lover."
"You would have me silence her? I do
not know where she is. It will be too
late."
"Not too late to contradict her evidence. No one saw me leave this house.
No one saw me return to it. Sure, it's
an alibi I want of you, Muriel O'Connor."
She regarded him coldly, stonily.
"Do you know what you ask?"
Dennis Donovan gave a sinister leer,
half-triumphant, half-supplicating.
"It's your illigant white hand in marriage I'll be after asking, my swate
Muriel, if you'll have me,"said he, "and
then not a man or woman can reproach
vou for not knowing where your husband was during the whole of one particular unlucky night."
Muriel turned from him pale with
loathing.
"I shall not take an assassin freshly
blood stained for a husband," she said
coldly. "Nor will I lend the shelter of
my roof to a fugitive from the hangman. What you propose is an insult,
and you have only yourself to blame if
the degradation you intended for me recoils upon yourself."
She rang the bell, apparently for the
purpose of destroying the alibi which the
conspirator desired to set up; but when
a servant responded, the voice of Donovan only came from the inner room,
giving some trifling order in Muriel's
name.
The girl started back from the door of
her mistress's bedroom as if the roar of a
beast of prey had sounded thence. Too
mooh amazed to make any reply, ahe
rushed down to the kitchen.and, exclaiming to the astonished cook, "0 Mary,
Mary! It's all true what you said���it's
all true!" covered her face with her
apron and burst into tears.
Later in the day Mrs. Donovan, the
ostensible mistress of "the house at the
corner," departed on a visit of indefinite
duration to some friends in Dublin.
CHAPTER XXL
A lover's lifb.
Days passed on, and in Muriel's honse
Dennis Donovan was lord aud master.
He came and wont as he pleased, seldom,
however, leaving the premises until
nightfall; he directed the servants and
assumed solo authority, and Muriel resisted his domination in nothing but the
privileges of nn intimacy which he strove
in vain to carry to its com"animation.
Rejecting with loathing his repeated
offers of marriage, she shut him off
rigidly from the realization of that condition of tilings the existence of which
he pretended and she dared not openly
deny.
Laura's letters were unanswered, for
Muriel remained bitterly resentful of
the supposed treachery of her friend, and
reference to the night of the railway
tragedy was barred by the danger it implied to a member of the revolutionary
brotherhood, Donovan for some days
stood in constant apprehension of arrest
upon the deposition of Laura King.ion;
but as her first letter to Muriel contained
no hint against him, or reference of any
sort to the crime, and, further, as the
newspapers reported that there was no
clue to the murder���exceiit the fact that
an hysterical woman,unknown, of whom
a very vague description was given, hud
fled from the station just as the last of
tho lights was being extinguished that
night, and escaped in the darkness���ho
grew to believe that Laura had not recognized him, and that ho was virtually ! suppress*-'
safe from justice.
The Hon. Cecil Chester made frequent
calls upon Muriel O'Connor. (In each
occasion he asked himself what business
he had there, anil always ho silenced the
warning voice within him by the assurance that he came in the interests of his
friend. Lord Willmore. who was throwing himself away on a dangerous woman.
The said "dangerous woman." Miss
Laura Kingdon, had the dark Bide of her
life associated with the house at the
corner, and into that mystery Chester
felt it tho duty of a true friend discreetly
to penetrate. Discroot penetration involved a diplomatic expenditure of time,
and no investigator with the least prudence or tact would be forever dwelling
upon the matter to be Investigated, Such
coui-bc would alarm tbe source of Information and seal her lips. Then what
more natural than that, in refraining
from dwelling too much upon his friend
ami his friend's sweetheart���the latter
clearly a distasteful subject to .Muriel
O'Connor���he should investigate Muriel
herself, and lure hor confidence by professions of sympathy as cordial as thoy
wore���though he would nol admit it to
himself���veritably   sincere?    Many a
valuable hour did he steal from the
affairs of Oroat Britain ami Ireland to
follow up those investigations in the
palm shaded conservatory, or tin* dainty
drawing room, whoso large French windows opened on to the velvet green lawn
backed by crest upon crost of rhododendron bushes.
presence of thi- other woman, whom his
instincts marked   "dangerous," but in
recognizing tho risk In* gave tho  more

[ a fool of himself.    Hi: bis true motive

ami whose sweet frank eyes enslaved his

Muri *1 O'Connor,
I One afternoon, as he lounged almost at
! hor feci the while she reposed in a shell-
ship 1 chiir of p ''a;*: and silver-green
I plush, lookiuy in the swathing folds of
. moss-colored silk and yellow Irish lace

sea-goddess, she asked titer Willmore.
"By the way, Damon-*" she said���it
i was a sobriquet which she had given
him���"where is Pythias? Why does he

���'And [shall be glad to listen, but indeed, I think there is not much fear that

day take a wife, Hermit) might grow
jealous of her husband's affections for his
friend."
"Women are apt to come between the
most attached friends, but perhaps I
should not give my wife cause for jealousy of Willmore. You know, 'friendship is constant in fill other things save
in the office and affairs of love.' If I
were to marry I should love, and if I
loved���"
"Well?   If you loved���"
"An unlikely thing with me."
"You are a cynic."
"I have thought mvself one."
"But if you did love?"
What spell was upon him that set h;-s
heart fluttering, ami made him falter
like a boy? His eyes were riveted on
hers, and wild words came;
i "If I were to love I should forget
friendship, duty, even honour, I almost
fear."
She answered thoughtfully, still gating into his face:
"How fortunate for you that you do
not love!"
He forced a light laugh. jv_
"Ha, ha I A politician has no room in
his thoughts for amatory projects."
"But yon have projects of your own
that will interest me, J'm sure. I confess to being a little weary of the subject
of your friend. Tell mo about yourself
���about this new appointment that has
beeu offered you���what changes are to
take place in the Ministry. Tell me
something of my poor Ireland, and
whether all the cruelties I hear reported
of Lord Furborough's Administration
are well founded."
i And she led him on from point to
point, so that he seldom left the house
without a sense of having betrayed the
trust which his chief reposed in him, of
having yielded up State secrets under
the sorcery of a woman's smile.
And Dennis Donovan, lurking within
earshot of their conversation, took note
of many a thoughtless word that was
spoken by Chester without suspicion that
it reached any ears but those so white
and exquisitely sculptured which peeped
from a veil of Titian hair.
Chester never encountered the Irishman.    Muriel was always found alone,
and their coaversation grew in earnestness with repetition.     At   fitist Muriel
threw herself without scruple into the
task of drawing froir.  this susceptible
I repository of State secrets all she could
gain for the advantage of a cause dear to
her heart and approved of by her con-
1 science: but as their intimacy increased,
and she became aware of Chester's real
* love and trust,  she perceived that she
I was playing an unworthy and treacher-
' ous part, and revolted from it.   The first
'sign  of   this was an opposition  to the
| eavesdropping of Dennis Donovan.    But
I this the latter overruled.    He compensated himself for his powerlessness over
her affections by an absolute tyranny
over her mind,  and after a  later  inter-
��� view with the politician, when she had
1 or turned aside from all political references, he drove her back to
hor repugnant course with a short but
all-powerful reminder of what she had
to do, its motive and its object.
But Dennis Donovan, hearing part,
heard all. and while the growth of Chester's passion filled hitn with malice, the
perceptible increase in tin* warmth of
Muriel O'Connor's response to that passion brought upon him the torture of a
bitter jealousy, which led him to strain
to the verge of endurance tin* coercive
power hi* li"ld over her. And Muriel,
growing in regard for her trusting and
devoted visitor, and writhing under the
insolent dictation and familiarity of the
revolutionist, for whom, as the assassin
of a man she had once loved, she bad
conceived a desperate abhorrence, turned
sn M mly to Chester for protection, and
sought from him by direct petition that
which she had hitherto exclusively relied
upon Donovan towin for her by intrigue.
It was in the sofl summer evening time,
when Chester called upon his way to the
House, ostensibly to bring her some rare
orclii'ls fi*** the conservatory, bul in truth
impelled by destiny to declare his love
nnd ask her to bo his wife. On that
evening of all others he had no right to
bo there: his duty called him emphatically to the House, whore an important
debate was to take place, at which ins
presence with certain precious .State
documents was indispensable to his chief.
Bul behold him rushing inm Muriel's
drawing room.to Steal half an hour from

THE   POULTRY  SHOW.
Judging  of Game and  Variety Bantam
Classes Completed.
The Nanaimo poultry show opened yes'.er-
day at 9 a.m., Mayor Haslam doing the
honors and receiving the guests, though the
opening ceremony waB perfectly informal.
The attendance yeBterday waB not very
large, owing to the weather and counter attractions though even with these disadvantages over 300 visitors were registered.
The Silver Cornet Band did not appear last
night owing to the inclemency of the
weather but on Friday night it is the intention to have some music. Judge Hewes
who has but just finished judging 1,800
birds elsewhere will manage to judge 150
birds to-day and 150 to-morrow. Mr.
Hewes complains that hehassincelast May he
hus only had five days disengaged. Aid. Craig
has kindly consented to allow the buggy
which was offered as a prize to be dispesed
of to the best advantage to raise funds
for tho Nanaimo Poultry Society. Of the
exhibits yesterday-Mr. Lobb has the best
Bantam exhibit, Rav. Flinton has already
purchased a considerable   number   of fowls.
To-day it ia expected that a large number will take advantage of lhe reduced
entrance charge aud visit the Bhow.
Those who visited the show yes'erday were
pleasantly surprised at the arrangements
and the number of the exhibits. The judge's
table was constantly the centre of a most
interested crowd. Quite * uumber of ladies
visited the Bhow yesterday,
All the exhibi's have arrived, including
quite a number of pigeons, winch though
uot very numerously represented as compared to the chickens yet show a large
variety of breeds, including pouters, Jacobins, homing Antwerps, carriers, English
and Russian trumpeters and flying tumblers.
The show is a scene of constant activity
and interest, whilst the constant admixture
of crowing, cackling and cooing keeps the
building in au anything but silent condition.

made yestenlay, with the number of points
