After a beautiful drive of some twenty
miles, Premier Davie, Mr. John Bryden and
a party of friends from Wellington reached
Englishman's River distriot yesterday about
noon, After lunch the party proceeded to
the district school house whoie about one
hundred residents of the settlement had al
ready gathered to meet the Premier and
Mr. Bryden. At the meeting there were
representative men from French Creek,
Errington and Little Qualicum.
Mr. Henry Pillar was appointed chairman
and in opening the meeting congratulated
the settlers upon the large turnout to hear
the Premier. He at one introduced Mr.
Devie, who was received with enthusiastic
applause.
Mr. Davie said he was gratified to meet
so many of the settlers. He said he was
always of the opinion that one had to go
away from home to learn what is going on
in his own district. He said that it would
no doubt be news to the settlers that a large
and influential meeting ha*' been held iu the
district on Saturday last, and that the
policy of the Government had been unanimously condemned. (Cries of no, no.) He
said this is what the Opposition organs said
about the meeting. The speaker then proceeded to read the report of the alleged
meeting from the Nanaimo Free Press,
which waB pronounced in most unqualified
terms by those present as false from beginning to end. Mr. Davie said theteport
was pel haps what tbe Reform Club gentlemen had intended to say, but he was satisfied from thu couversation he had had
with the settlers since his arrival, that no
such meetiug had ever taken place. He had
learned that eight or ten settlers met on
Saturday last and that even those gentlemen
were not unanimous in their opposition to
the Government. The Vi-'.ycj^t then pip-
ceeded to deal witli the oharges made by
Mr. McKei zie and those who were with
him. Mr. Davie first took up the Nakusp
scandal and, as at Wellington, showed to the
satisfaction of all present that the charge
made by Mr. McKenzie that the Governmeut waB shirking the charges, was not the
fact. A Royal Commission had been appointed by the Governmeut with unlimited
scope to enquire into the whole affair and in
a short time the results of their investigations would be published to the world. The
Opposition, after making the charges, refused to move for an investigation. Mr.
Davie then referred to the case of the settler
al Three Forks, whom Mr. MoKenzie stated
at the meeiing ou Saturday had been deprived of his laud by the Government who,
he said, turned it over to tne railway company for a townsite. This was an untniti
gated falsehood. What the Governmeut.
ilid do waa tn grant a deed to the settler in
quesi ion two months before the time the
party was entitled to it, which action wae
lhe very opposite to that charged by Mr.
MoKenzie. Mr. Davie in passing ou to the
next speaker, Mr. Ralph Smith, caused
much amusement when he quoted the opening remarks attributed to Mr. Smith in
which he w,��s supposed to have "congratulated those present for the large turnou*"
considering iho sparsely settled district in
which the meeting was culled. Referring to
Mr. Smith's statements that the Government
was running behind at the rate of $200,000
per annum.
Mr. Davie quoted from Mr. Turner's budget
speech of last session, showing thit the
statement was wholly unfounded. Instead
of the Government having squandered over
$1,000,000 as Mr. Smith had stated, over
��2,000,000 had been spent in gublio works
and various permanent works of utility.
Tho net public debt was not ��2,000,01* ).
The public debt of the cities of Victoria,
Vancouver and Westminster was more than
double that of lhe Pro* nice. The credit of
British Columbia today stands second on
the money markets of the world amongst
oolonial securities. This showed must conclusively that the ���.-.flails were beiug economically oondnoted. Mr. Davie then pointed
out that to the Governments with which he
iiail been connected, had brought about thia
most Batisfiictoiy state of aR'ahs. The
country is not going in bankruptcy. This
Province is, in a Bound financial condition.
The Slocan railway scheme waa next
taken up by Mr. Davie and successfully
dealt with. The speaker showed that the
Government had saved money for the
couutry by the arrangement mado with the
railway company. It was a well known fact
that the Government guaranteeing railway
bonds must conclude that they will eventually havo to pay the amount so guaranteed
in the end. Had the Government guaranteed the interest ou the Slocan road as
authorized by parliament they would simply
pay interest on $25,000 per mile for twenty-
live years and would have nothing to show
for it whereas by guaranteeing the
interest and principal at $17,300
a mile the difference saved at the
end of the time would pay off the bonds at
maturity, and havo the road to the good.
It was olaimed by some that the Government should o-i-n the railways but in a province like British Columbia this would not
be practicable. The charge of extravagant
expense bills on the pari of the Ministers
was also   referred to   and   successfully re-

futed. Speaking of the famous Mclnnes
Reform Club platform, the Premier said
that only a part of the platform of these so-
called Reformers was given. He theu
quoted from the Westminster Colombian
some further planks overlooked by the local
Reform Cluh because they would operate to
the disadvantage of the farmer. One of the
chief planks of tbe Westminster platform
was representation by population only. The
Premier then showed ihat if thiB were
carried out three-fourths of the whole representation of the Province would be elec'ed
I*y the four ci'ies of the Provino-f. 'lhe
fanners would practically have no say in
who should represent them. They also
fa* "r<*d'he Government purchasing the E.
k N. railway lands. He had no doubt that
the company would like this, but it would
be found that they would want to get back
what they had expended on them, which
would involve an amount of about $3,0CO,-
C00. The Government would no doubt be
able to make an arrangement with the company which would result in the lands being
settled more rapidly.
The chairman then introduced Mr. John
Bryden who was received with prolonged
applause. He formally announced himself
as a candidate in the interest of the Government and then stated his views in regard
to the many important questions agitating
the minds of the people. Referring to tbe
Slocan road he said at first he was some what
mystified about the matter himself. Since
looking into it he was forced to endorse the
policy of the Government in regard to it.
The Government was getting back under
the agreement made by the C. P. R. Co.
under its lease to operate the road at 40 per
cent, of the gross earnings, and he considered that if 60 per cent, of the gross earnings
of the road is sufficient to pay running expenses and a profit to the operators, the 40
per cent, received by the Government
should foot up a handsome sum annually.
He hoped that in a short time the Government would see its way clear to make some
larger appropriations towards building roads
in the di��triot. He had urged the building
of a trunk road to Cornox both puhlicly and
privately and hoped to see something done
towati's it in a short time. He could not at
all times endorse all that the Governmeut
did, but he was in favor of their general
policy, winch was a progressive one. He
theu aai ii he would be pleased to answer any
questions the settlers wished to ask him as
this would be the best means, perhaps, of
obtaining his views on matters of most importance to them.
The chairman then said that the following
questions had been placed in his hands
which he would read to Mr. Bryden:
"Will you assist us in getting the owners
of the ss. Joan to allow their steamer to call
at, Beaver Creek wharf on her returning from
Comox, the same week that she calls at the
wharf in going there?"
In reply to this question Mr. Bryden said
he had heard that the Bottlers complained
of the present boat service aud had told Mr,
Dunsmuir about it. Mr. Dunsmuir said the
company would be only too pleased to call
where freight was offoied. He wo aid again
draw the attention of Mr. Dunsmuir to the
matter and said there would be no difficulty
in bringing about an arrangement to have
the Joan call wherever a a flag was hoisted.
A gentleman in the audience said that he
lived close to the wharf and always found
the officers courteous and willing to call
wheu business was offered. As a matter of
fact there had not been any freight for a
long time,
"Will you if elected vote for the immediate completion of the Trunk Road to
Comox';"
Iu reply to this question Mr. Bryden reminded them of his remarks a few moments
before in which he stated that he had already urged the matter. He would not only
voie for il if elected but would do all in his
power to obtain its completion.
"Will Mr. Bryden use his influence with
the owinrs of the E. & N. Railway Company, in g'lttii g the immediate completion
of ttie railioad lion, Wellington to Comox?"
The oompany were now considering lhe
nia;ler. At the last meeting it was decided
to have u location survey made at once.
Owing to the Snancial depression prevailing
it, would no doubt be diffioult to get the
money required for some time. The road
would undoubtedly be built aa soon as business would warrant it.
"Will you if elected pledge yourself lo
attend a meeting here, say iu the mouth of
January of every year, to address the
electors?"
If elected he aaid he would always be
pleased to meet his constituents and discuss
matters with them.
"Would Mr. Bryden if elected, vote for a
law for Ihe protootion of oa! ��� 1*!"
There could not possibly be auy objecti n
Lo this aB it was a mat r affecting settlors
only, and if requested by them to do so ho
wonld certainly urge i' mosl strongly.
" Will you vote foi a.ohange in tue law
restricting bush Bros from the month of
May to October, thai being the mil} months
in the year when farmers can burn up and
do ir olF lumber?"
Mr. Bryden said thia was also 9 use
whero the farmers shou d know what they
required, anil he would be guided by their
representation.
The ohairman then said he would, ou behalf of some gentlemen in the meeting, ask
Mr. Davie the following questions:
"Will you vote for the entire repeal of tbe
act taxing private improvenv nls which is a
tax upon industry and favors laziness and
indolence?"
Mr. Davie said he had introduced a bill to
abolish the tax ou improvements but the
House defeated it. They afterwards adopted
about half of it. He was always in favor of
encouraging enterprise. It was nol right to
tax improvements put upou property by an
industrious man while his noighbor sat
quietly by and benefitted by these improvements without paying anything extra for
them.
"Would the Governmeut if they return to
power again allow us settlers iu this district
to appoint nn executive committee annually
to apportion the money voted to this district
for tho roads?"
This plan waa carried out at Denman
Island and he believed it worked satisfactory. The Government would bo pleased to
get rid of the trouble entailed nnder the
present system and would no doubt turn the
matter over to the settlers as suggested.
"Would they allow us to appoint our road
bosses annually, subject to the approval of
the Government?"
This matter was in a similar position to
the preceding question.
"We wish to call the attention of the
Government to the jam in the Englishman's
river, and are anxious lo know if they will
do anything for the removal of the same?"
Regarding this question Mr. Davie said
he was sorry the attention of the Government had not been drawn to it during the
session. Two similar cases bad come up in
the House during the last session, and in
each instance the Government had granted
11,600 to remedy the difficulty. Another
��l,5C'l might as well have been provided
for Engli hman's River.
A gentleman in the audience said he had
never Been Mr. McKenzie in the neighborhood for the purpose of inquiring into the
needs of the set i. lenient.
Mr. XV. H. Lees, following, considered it
waB the duty of the settle* * to elect a supporter of the present Government, especially
when one so worthy to represent them is
available in the person of Mr. Bryden. Had
the district been properly represented many
matters overlooked would have been attended to. It had just been proved to ihem
in the case of the jam in Englishman's River
the district had lost $1,500. He then
moved the following resolution, which whs
carried by a standing vote, only four in the
meeting dissenting.
I beg to move that after hearing the
Premier's explanation of the policy of his
Government and Mr. Bryden's replies to the
questions asked him regarding this immediate district, we pledge ourselves to do all
in our power by vote and influence to elect
him a member of the House of Assembly for
the northern division of the Nanaimo district at the next election.
Mr. Richard Wallace seconded the resolution and also endorsed Mr. Lee's remarks.
Mr. Dickinson then moved a vote of
thanks to Mr. Davie for paying a visit to the
settlement at this time, and for his able address.
This resolution was seconded by Mr.
Knight who heartily endorsed all the Premier
had said.
Mr. Davie expressed great appreciation
at the reception extended to him. In cominf
here he said he was simply doing his duty.
Mr. Sutton of Cowichan spoke briefly
staling that he was In the field as a candidate for Cowichan and Alberni in the interests of the Government.
Mr. Davie then moved a vote of thanks to
the chairman which was seconded by Mr.
Bryden.
Sir. Davie may well be pleased with his
reception in this district. His speech yesterday afternoon was the best the writer has
ever heard bim make.

A PUTLACH IN ALASKA.
ONE OP THE PECULIAR 0USTOM8 OT
THE NATIVE*
Warn Salmon Berry Season Is SJSmm Ommm*
Marry-Maklng Event of These War Northern Tribes -The Ploklng aad mm AA_
Wfmsmy��� How They Enjoy.
The natives or Indians of southwestern
Alaska are of a very sooiable natnre, and
have a good many feasts and social gatherings during tbe year, which are participated in by both old and young. The salmon berry grows in Alaska in great abundance and attains a size nnd excellence
that I have never seen equaled anywhere
else. As may be supposed, iu a country
where fruit, except tbe hurdler varieties
of small fruit, is scarce, tiiey are eagerly
Bought and highly appreciated by tbe natives, and therefore one of their principal
anniversary feastB is called trie "ualmon-
berry potlnph." When this fruit is at its
bes'. which is from about the first to the
middle of August, a lnrge itnmher **f natives, both men and women, take canoes
ami go away from the village to an island
or part of the coast some distance off,
where the berries are ripe, luscious and
abundant. When they reach the picking
ground they all start in, and while they
talk, laugh and huve fun, they gather
hundreds of gallons of berries, which are
put into cans, boxes and baskets, and in
two or three days the party is ready to
return home. Tne canoes all keep in sijjht
of each other aud as they approach the
village, flags and showy streamers of calico or other material are displayed by the
reluming berry-pickers. The Indians left
ai home, including women and children,
march down to the beach to meet them.
As the canoes approach they line tip in a
tow and stop, just a short distanoe
from the shore. The spokesman of the
party stands up in the center canoe and
makes a speech to the receiving party,
that is orowding down to the very edge
of tbe water. He recounts the incidents
of the voyage, and tells them, in rather
stilted and grandiloquent style, of tbe protection they had from the spirit of the
sea while on the water, of the success they
had, and of the choice supply of fruit obtained. After the close of this address an
Indian on shore steps forward and delivers a reply, and glad welcome to those in
the canoeB. He tells them or' any tiling of

���oi, gets at hast one present. These presents sometimes amium, 1.0 $1,000 to $2,OUO

"p tlauh." Some of the more fortunate
natives will often get several valuable
presenti nt tiie potlaeh. Alter the presents ar�� distributed, tbe berries are carried
kito the different houses aud a feast and
general good time ends the celebration.
Wild White Cattle.
A permanent memorial ia to be made at
the famous herd of wild white onttle at
Cadiow Forest, the property of the Duke
of Hamilton. The Duke baa given instructions to have presented to the Kelvingrove
Museum, Glasgow, a collection of specimen* representing the hsrd. These will
eonsist of a stuffed bull, cow and calf, and
the skeleton of another bull. The herd
has recently been partly crossed with the
equally famous wild cattle of ChilUngham
Park, and it is, therefore, likely that the
pure Cadzow breed may not long be available for preservation.
Fal Sheep fur the British.
New Zealand hus twenty-five establishments in which mutton iB frozen for the
British market. The output iH some .wo
niillii'.ii fat sheep a year. The sheep used
for thiB purpose are chiefly crosses of
Merino and Down, long-wooled breeds.
Shropshire Downs and Lincolns nre in
mucn tavor for rich, level pastures, while
in billy and broken situations Border Lei-
oeaters have proved quite successful for
orossing on .Merino ewes.
Imli-^o Industry,
Dnring the last seven years the area devoted to indigo in India has been about
100,000 acres, but in 1891-2 it sunk nearly
one-third. A favorable season and a rise
in the price of indigo at Calcutta, led to a
great extension of tbe industry in 1893,
and tbe area of cultivation was estimated
at 850,000 acres. The output was about
eight per cunt, above the average rail exports for the last twelve years.
Chinese In Russia.
Large quantities of tea plnnts and appliances for the manufacture of ten, together
with Chinese laborers, are being transported from China with a vie��v of establishing
plantations in the Ural region of Southeastern Russia, which has been found very
favorable to the growth of tbe tea plant.
The Chinese trading classes do not favor
the project, as they fear it will become,
like tea culture in India and Ceylon, another serious rival to  the native industry.
 ���Q	
Pttinis in Australia.
The government of South Australia some
jears ago caused its explorers to plum seeds
of date palms at their camps. The palms
from those seeds have grown to tall, productive trees; and well-matured dates have
been recei.ed at Adelaide. The Queensland government is planting coooanut palms
on the islands along its coast.
Sheep llreertlng In Frenee.
Notwithstanding the fostering cave ot
the French government, sheep breeding has
deolined in Algeria, and official reports
���how that for several years past there has
been a progressive decrease in the number
of sheep. The present number ia estimated at 8,896,000, the astimatea being
baaed oa official figure*.
Sheep Shearing.
Comparative trials of sheep shearing by
hand and by machine, made ia Australia,
resulted largely in favor of the machines.
It was found that a thousand iheep oould
be sheared by maohine for about ten dollara, and the yield of wool ia about tight

THE MEETING  A T   WELLINGTON.
The meeting held on Monday evening at
Wellington cannot be otherwise truthfully
described than us a great success for the
Government, and especially for the Premier.
Hon. Mr. Davie received a veritable ovation
from the citizens of Wellington, and all the
signs of public sentiment presented on the
occasion go for naught if ihe meeting does
not presage a triumph for the Government
candidate, when election day comes round.
The Premier iu the speech delivered by him
treated tlie v rious questions of the day in a
co amendable tone of moderation, at the
same tune clearly selling forth the (lovern-
meut side of the question,and clearing away
the mists of fiction and misrepresentation
with which the Op-position and their allies,
the so called Independents, have contrived
to wrap them. Hon. Mr Davie was particularly happy in his reference to the R.iyal
Commission ar d tlio work it has to do. The
personnel of the Commis-sion will commiind
universal respect. It ia ouly neooBBary to
mention the tame of Chief Justice Sir
Matthew Begbie to convey the assuiauce to
every fair-niiided uud imelligent man in
British Oolumbla that Sir Matthew will not
be a party to a sham investigation or a talse
report. The other Commissioner, the Hon.
George Burbugc, Judge of the Court of Exchequer of Canada, is a stranger to the Province, but that very fact is the best guarantee that he has no interest to serve,and will
enter on the discharge of Ins duties as com.
missioner with an entirely unprejudiced
mind. The report of the Commissioners can
be accepted without reserve by every honest
man iu the Province, aB the report of righte-
oub am! high-minded judges, who can be
relied upon to set forth the truth, whose
position is above suspicion, and whose trained legal minds are not to be misled by soph-
Istry r misrepresentation. Moreover the
issue in one which every plain man can ap
preciate. Was the arrangement made by
the Government with the Nakusp and
Slocan railway company an honest one, or
was the Government or any member el it
guilty of corruption in oonnection the*
with? This is the issue the Commission has
to try, aud this the issue in which the people of the Province at large are interested.
Is British Columbia governed by 1 onest ar,d
upTight men, or by a gang of boodlers? It
will also necessarily be determined by the
result arrived at whether the Opposition,
when they charged the Government virtually with corruption and all manner of political dishonesty, were themselves honest men
or contemptible slanderers? Not the Government only, but the Opposition as well
are on trial before this Commission. Hon.
Mr. Davie has manfully said that he is prepared to stand or fall by the
report which shall be presented
by the Commissioners, and not even
envy or falsehood itself can say that the
Commissioners are biased and cannot be
depended on to render a fair report. The
whole affair of the Royal Commission reflects
the highest credit on the Government, and
we are are confident that the report returned by the Commissioners will fully
exonerate the Government, and by doing so
will in effect convict the leaders of the
Opposition of malignant and malicious slander. On every side the signs accumulate
that the Government will be sustained in
the forthcoming general election, aud that
their opponents will be put to deserved confusion. Not the least of these signs was
the meeiing of Monday night at VVeltinglou,
and its results.
including Behring Sea, which is situated
north of tbe 35th degree of north latitude
and east of the 180th degree of longitude
from Greenwich. Any vessel found to be
implicated in sealing during the proscribed
period in the waters prohibited, whether
warned or not, and any vessels found having
on board implements or apparatus suitable
for sealing, shall be seized. Tbe seized
vessel and all persons on board shall be sent,
if American, to some convenient port in
Alaska, California, Oregon or Washington,
and there delivered to the officers of the
United States court having jurisdiction to
try the offence and impose penalties. If the
vessel seized is British, it is to be sent to
Ounalaska and there delivered to the senior
British officer present, or to aome convenient port in British Columbia, and delivered
to the proper authorities of Great Britain,
or to the commanding officer of any British
\ essi'l charged with the execution of the
award. These instructions seem very stringent, especially in the case of sealers who
have uot previously  beeu regularly warned.
THE    GREAT    STRIKE
MINERS.
OF   COAL
THE INSTRUCTIONS SENT TO THE
BEHRING SEA PATROL.
the instructions sent for the guidance of
the American Behring Sea patrol fleet, in
seizing and arresting illegal sealers, have
been published. The instructions provide
that commanders of naval forces Bhull warn
all American aud British vessels they may
meet outside the waters declared by act of
Parliament and act of Congress respectively
not open to sealing during the close season,
not to enter suoh waters for the purpose of
sealing during the periods in which fur
sealing la prohibited, nnd copies of the President's proclamation, of the British act of
Parliament, and of the instructions issued
to American officers, are to be hauded to
the skippers. During the season extending
from May 1st to July 31st, fur sealing is
forbidden in that part of  the Paoific Ocean,
The great strike of coal miners in the
United States, which was announoed for
Saturday last at noon, has commenced, and
although not yet quite as large as it was expected to be hy its promoters, is nevertheless of very serious dimensions. Some 130,-
000 men, it is stated at the headquarters of
the United Mineworkers at Columbus, Ohio,
laid down their tools on Saturday, and
joined in the general strike ordered by
President McBride. The strike extends
over many States, including Pennsylvania,
West Virginia, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Missouri.
The men who have brought on this strike
have incurred a very great responsibility,
in view of the present depressed condition
of industry in every line thut could be mentioned in the Uuited States, aud the crowds
of unemployed men that are roaming at
large through the country. It iB not improbable that before all is over the number
of the strikers may swell to the full sum of
200,000 couuted on by the men who ordered
the strike. The strike is sure to bo followed
by a rise in the price of coal, and the shutting down of numerous factories, which use
coal for fuel in driving their engines and
machinery, and whioh have only been kept
open with a strugg'e so long. It is coolly
calcultate.d by the leaders of the st.r.ke thai
this will throw at least 400,000 more men
aud women idle on th-) streets. Idleness in
the cast* of most of them will mein starvation. We say that Picsident MoBride and
his associates, who brought about suoh a
state of things, and coolly counted on it as
a f.ictor in the contemplated struggle, have
been guilty of an act of astonishing rashness,
and have incurred a degree (if responsibility
which cannot be easily described. They
will be fortunate if before all is over they
have not more to answer for than the tears
of weeping women and starving children
only, and the curses of hungry and despairing men. The miners may be underpaid at
present, but a half loaf is butter than no
bread in hard timea, and we fear that many
of the striking miners will miss the half
loaf. Id the meantime the prioe of coal is
Bure to rise, and coul owners who have large
q'lautities mined and on Ihe surface will
reap a golden harvest, while tho strikers are
idle, and some of them perhaps starving.

The Kpworth League provided a charming
entertainment last night at the Wallace
street Methodist church. When Mr.
Hunter took the chair at 8 o'clock, the
building was full, many being unable to find
seats and standing all the time. In the un-
avo dable absence of the Rev. R. K. Maitland, the Rev. E. V. Smith of the Halliburton streetohuroh read the essay on Tennyson
which was prepared by Mr. Maitland and
rendered it very creditably. With this exception, the programme was rendered as
published yesle.rday. The various solos,
readings and recitations were rendered in
very good style and were well received by
the large audience. The singing of God
Save the Queen brought a most enjoyable
evening to a close.

HO! FOR THE 24TH OF MAY.
The Treasurer and   Committees Making
Good Progress.
At the Queen's Birthday celebration meetiug on Monday evening Mayor Quennell
presided and was supported by a large body
ofcilizens. Mr. Geo. Norris acted as secretary pro tern in the absence of Mr. Deane.
Mr. M. Wolfe reported having collected
$347 50 in cash and prizes promised to the
value of '163.50. He expected to gather
$650 at least. Mr. Yarwood reported that
the City Council would donate $100 in
money and prepare the park for the ce'o-
bration. The Council had also referred
the matter of a cinder track to tho Street
Committee. A commit tee was appointed to
draft a programme for th** day composed of
the following: Messrs. E B. Drummond,
H. A Simpson, J. J. Honeyman, ��� Foreman, J. H. Pleace, E. M. Yarwood, J, H.
Scales aud Mr. Geo. Williams. It waB suggested that the committee invite the people
of Wellington to co-operate promising a return compliment on their 4th of July celebration. The Mayor and council to be also
requested to officially invite the Mayors,
councils and citizens of Vancouver and New
Westminster to participate in the celebration. A Lacroase club deputation asked
that the sports committee assist in defraying
the expenses of a Lacrosse team (junior)
from New Westminster to play on the 24th
or 25th. Mr. M. Wolfe was elected treasurer. The next meeting will be held on
Monday at 9 p. m.
PUBLIC  MEETING  AT WELLINGTON
(CONCLUDED.)
Dillon on the Platform.
Mr. H. Dillon said that while they came
here to listen to the Premier, they were also
called upon to perform the sad office of saying good-bye to their former members, because he said they would never have them
as their representatives again. He then
endorsed briefly the policy of Mr. Davie and
his Government.
Thomas R. E. Appears.
The irrepressible ThomaB R. Edward Mclnnes, against a storm of "sit down," hisses,
etc., imposed upon the ot herwise good natured
audience for a few minutes and in the course
of some idiotic remarks interspersed with
some "smart Aleck" profanity, endeavored
to persuade the audience that Mr. Davie
had said nothing. He was immediately
shouted down by the disgusted audience,
who declared from all parts of the room that
they desired parliamentary language, not
profanity. Thomas R. Edward satisfied
himself by declaring that John Brown had
been driven out of po itics by the Attorney-
General; only that day he, (MclnneB) had
received a letter from Mr. Brown that he
had been notified by the Dominion Government that he would have to drop politics.
Mr. Brown had thus been driven out but
his soul would go marching on.
Mr. Davie, in closing, said there was
nothing in Mr. MclnneB' remarks worth
noticing. He would say, however, so far as
Mr. Brown was concerned he did not think
there waa any particular hardship about it.
The facts seemed from Mr. Mclnnes' statement that the Dominion Government had
deoided tbat a Dominion Government employee could not draw bis living from the
Dominion treasury unit a second salary from
the people of this Province as well. He
could say that neither by hint, letter, suggestion or any oilier means did he or the
other members ot thu Government seek to
bring about the retirement of Mr. Brown.
Mr. Davie then thanked the audience for
the kind and patient hearing they had given
himself and the various speakers of the
evening, and then moved a vote of thanks
to the chairman, which was carried unanimously.
The meeting was one of the best in the
history of the district. Almost the entire
audience was in sympathy with the Premier.
Women the Same as Men.
The London k Lancashire L ife Assurance
Co., have decided to insure women at the
same rale as men. Hitherto an extra of five
dollars per thousand war charged and ia
still charged by other lompanies. No
doubt a large number of our Nanaimo ladies
will take advantage of the reduced rates
and thus secure a competency in the shape
of an endowment policy. Tbey also insure
miners on endowments and tontine plans.

ABS��NT-MINDEDN��S*
nWoh Heine Astonished Bh H__ tsf
His Distraught Manaer at Table.
Poets really do not feed on air. Indeed
���fcough they maj ba hungry In a die-
draught and absent minded way, they
probably eat A* much an other men. More,
Serhaps, sometimes. Heinrieh Heine once
estroyed the pleasure of a little supper by
a mixture of appetite and absent mind-
edncss, of which be afterwards beoame
eonscious with regret and yet a spice
ot amusement. Heine, when a student at Gottingen. waa invited with
a fellow-student to take supper with
Professor Hugo and his hospitable wife.
The fare wus simple, and not too plentiful,
but one dish was viewed with col scious
pride by the hostess, who evidently felt
that nothing could be better for the occasion. This was a small plat** containing
four fat sausages, with tempting gravy and
gainishings of green. The choice dish
was passed first to Heine, who was in the
full tide of a long and animated discourse,
setting forth his opinions on some question
which hud been started by the professor.
Instead of helping himself to one sausage,
and allowing the dish to proceed on its
way to the others, who were eagerly ex-
peoting it. he seized til ��� lit**, pine- d it before him, and proceeded to dispose of one
sausage after another, not negleoting the
gravy, either, until the garnisiiings alone
remained to show the havoo he had made.
Coming to the end of his speech at about
the same time that he finished the last
sausage, he looked at the gloomy faces
about him then at the empty dish, discovered what hail been the meaning of certain spasmodic attempts on the part of
Professor Hugo and his distracted spouse
to interrupt his flow of language, and, of
eourse, made profuse apologies. But he
was never invited to that house for supper
again���the chance of being left supperless
themselves was too great for bis boats to
risk it a second time.
London Crossing-Sweepers.
A shilling a day is the limit of the average income of the London crossing-
sweeper, and this is rather an over than an
nnder calculation, since, although a few of
the luckiest who are to be found in the
West Eud squares or the fashionable
thoroughfares, or opposite government
offices or banking houses, may possibly
earn twelve or' fifteen shillings a week,
there are a large number *1 ,ily io be fouud
in the by streets of the metropolis who assert that eighipeace a pay is tlleir average
takings. As proof positive of t*ieir allegations they refer inq drers to tiie parochial
authorities, from whom they reoeive so
mail)* loaves of bread a week as* uidoor relief. The old stories of abundant suppers
and stockings full of inuney httve, at the
presfiitday.no foundation ill truth, and
the negro crossing sweeper, who bequeathed ��5U0 to the daughter of Alderman
Waithman, would appear to have been the
last member of the class whose earnings
were above his actual necessities.���London
frntagraph.
Pleasant Method* of Dying.
"Death by strangulation," said Dr. E. _
Henry, of Baltimore, "is supposed to be
the most pleasant way to die. Hanging,
drowning, opiate poisoning and asphyxiation with gas to the person in a normal
oondition bring plea-ant dreams, usually tt
most beautiful panorama of landscape
riews floats through the brain, and there is
a sensation of floating through space in
luxurious ease. But should the person '*"���
oover, the pain is rhe most intense of any
that oould be suffered, and i here an* people
who are so constituted that this pain is all
that Is realized, even during tiie process of
strangulation. To these people the sensa
tion is that of being pierced by thousands
of sharp needles, and their heads seem to
be bursting with blows upon the inside ot
tLe skull. With such persons it is tho
totmi horrible form of death."
Pretty Necks.
Mrs. Jenness Miller says: Few women
bare pretty necks; most of them having a
prominent bone. If they are fat it is
cushioned ; but still it looks  like  an   ugly
fiece of dough. This can be gotten rid of
y leaving off the corset, dropping the
���boulders, raising the chest and getting
ooutrol of the abdominal musoles.
Talk to women of hygiene from the
bygienlo standpoint and they are apt to be
but listless auditors; but talk to them of
byu'iene as an adjunct of tho toilet���as n
secret aid to beauty���and the demonstration will find eager listeners, and the
wheels of the social revolution will have
been set in motion.
An  Indian's  Philosophy.
A|young minister asked a savage: "Don't
yoa fear death?"
Mr. Hawk, a powerful, finely proportioned savage, looked down upon the un
derailed lad,
''Boy, it is only the whites who teaoh
the fi-Jirof death." hfl said. "The Indian
fears nothing. Ho takes what comes. If
he hns f o I, he eats it; if he has none, hi
goes without." And then he proceeded
with a dissertation on the glories of death
tbat took away the boy's desire to be a
-missionary. There was something pro
foundly touching in the Indian's philoso
phy. After that Mr. .Sabine did not try
to aooTert any more Indians,

Johnson's Block. WANAIMO, B. Ci, WEDNESDAY, APKIL 25. 1894.
PUBLISHM BV SPCC
<��> By prank Bar_ ett ��
lay down to sleep, comforting myself
with tke reflection that I -should certainly see Taras again the next night.
When I looked out in the morning, I
paw Drigo and Putty on the balcony,
giving ii in icl ions to a carpenter who
was patching up the window' shutters.
When that job was done, the man put
some screws in the bolt of the passage
door, Drign and Putty looking on all the
while. Taras was not with them, nor
did I see anything of him all day, though
I only left the spot once to buy some
fond with the money I had earned the
day before, creeping under the stairs
anil behind the barge and so round by
Johnson's yard into Sweet Apple lane
that 1 might not be seen from the Joy.
When the carpenter had done his work,
tliey all went in by the passage, bolt
ing the door after, ami I saw no more of
them.
A., soon as it was dark I went to my
hiding place tinder the stairs, but I was
less patient than 1 had b;*en the night
before, and I could nor control my-agitation as the time drew near for Taras
to come again. My tei th chattered,
my body and limbs trembled and Shook
with feverish excitement, yet Jknew not
why. As the clock struck 2 the police
boat passed by. About five minutes
later  another boat  came  out  of the
murky distance and drew toward the
stairs. As it pulled into the stairs I
counted five men packed in the stern,
arid i knew by the number that Taras
had found his friends. My heart sail!;
in bitter disappointment, for I had
made up my mind to speak to him if h"
came along with Drigo. Now, there
was no pretext for speaking to him���he
was not in danger, With his three
friends he was more than a match for
Drigo and Putty, supposing they had
evil intentions toward him.
They lauded, and having discharged
tho waterman groped their way up the
dark stairs to the landing above, where
tbey stopped, talking together in a low
voice and in their own tongue. Eventually Drigo left them and went up to
the Joy to see that the road was clear.
Meanwhile, made reckless by my unsatisfied yearnings, I had left my place, and
following them noist-le-jsly up he steps
stood now almost within arm's reach of
Taras. I distinguished the profile of his
face <n*iite clearly against the faint light
beyond as he turned to speak a few
cheering words to one of his friends���
the bold, handsome outline of aquiline
inise, the curve of his mustache aud his
short, pointed beard. Almost I fancied
1 could see in his face the expression of
happiness in having rescued his friends.
I was envious of that kindly regard bestowed upon another, and drawing
a step nearer, by an instinctive impulse,
raised my hand anil laid it timidly on
his arm. Ttie act was not intentional.
I cnild not help doing it.
The movement was seen by his com
patriot!, who started with a stifled cry of
alarm. Taras. seeing me, spoke a few
low words of remonstrance to his friend
that seemed to say; "What are you
afraid of? It's only a poor, miserable
waif." Then, recognizing me at a second
glance, he exclaimed softly in English:
"Ah, it is you!"
"Yes, mo���the kipper," I tried to say.
but my voice was thick with feverish
agitation and my words unintelligible.
"You have come to tell us that it is
all right," he said, adding, after he had
given this explanation to his friends,
"it's Very good of you," and he nodded
at me again with that kind smile that
had wrought such a mysterious effect
upon my nature.
Just then Drigo whistled softly from
the side door of the Joy, and Taras
hurried his friends forward, leaving me
there with more happiness in my heart
than I had felt in the whole of my life.
I waited on tiie landing until they had
all filed into the Joy. Then I slipped
jiast the closed door and ran across to
the archway in Sweet Appie lane opposite tho house. I knew ihat there
was no accommodation for the party in
the Joy, and that us soon as tin' escaped
men had changed clotnes tliey would
come away. As there was no other way
bat through Sweet Apple lane thoy must
pass me, and I should see Taras once
more.
I had stood there not many minutes
when I heard a glass crash in the Joy,
and the next moment there was a deep
thud as if some ono had thrown himself against the door; then there followed
a stilled cry, the shuffling of feet and
the sound of heavy blows. These sounds
left me in no doubt as to what was going on in the bar of the Joy. In
Bhadwell one hears the noise of fighting
every night. But I could hardly believe
that Drigo **nd Putty wore the attacking party. The latter I knew to be a
coward and feeble as well, being sodden
with irink. Taras, I felt sure, could
defend himself against half adozen such
men as he, and timid as his friends
might be it was not likely that they
would stand aside and make no effort to
aid him. I had no fear for him, but
rather a savage exultation in the belief
that ho would thrash his enemi.s and
punish them according to their deserts.
It occurred to me that he had discovered Drigo's treachery and was now
giving iiiui a lesson not to bo forgotten,
and with a burning desire to hear him
howling for mercy I ran across the road
and put my ear to the door.
The fight was over already. I conld
hear uo sound save a faint whispering
and occasionally the shuttling of feet,
and even these indications of movement
within ceasai after awhile, leading me
to believe that the whole party had retired into the room behind the bar. 1
oould not make it out. There was nc
swearing, no altercation, nothing but
silence. It was the strangest way of
x'o.ieluding a lightor a quarrel that 1 had
ever heard. What did it mean? Had
Taras killed Drigo by some terrible blow
of that strong arm and were they all si
lence.l by the fear of alarming the
police*! That seemed to me the most
plausible explanation.
I betook myself hurriedly to the dark
archway as I heard a grating of the lock
in the side door of the Joy, and almost
immediately aft rward 1 Baw the three
escaped friends of Taras come up from
Ferryboat lane. I recognized till three
as they pasped the archway. They
walked in haste. I thought then that
they might be in search of a doctor, but
they never returned. After a time I
ventured down the alley. There was
no light to be seen through the fanlight
of the aide door, and all was silent as
the ;iight. I hung about the place in
vague perplexity, unable to leave it, expecting every minute some further development of the mystery.
At 7 o'cloi'k, when it was broad daylight, the front door of the Mariner's
Joy opened, and Putty came ont and
look down the shutters. He had not a
scratch on his face. While he was thus
engaged Drigo appeared, and lie also
showed no sign of having been in the
fight. He spoke to Putty and then
walked of along Sweet Apple lane. Put
ty went in and reappeared, sweeping
away the fragments of broken gbiss.
Then for the first time a terrible fear
that Taras had been killed in the light
took hold of. tue aud shook me like an
ague. But 1 did not know what to do,
I was like one paralyzed���incapable of
action. I never thought of going to the
police. What use if Taras was dead?
Besides, from the earliest days of my
recollection I had regarded the police as
my natural enemy���the enemy of all
outcasts and homeless wretches like me.
But filter a lime I paiurut si^lit of
Drigo returning down Sweet Apple lam
with a loaf under his arm and other provisions iu his hands. Then, desperate
with this new botti fear, I stepped into
tne road limn the doorway where I had
been CTOUcuiug and stopped hem.
" W n. iv is he���the man with the fair
beard I" 1 asked.
"Why,' said he in his broken English,
and wilti a grin on his hateful face, but
not a sign of einiiarrasnient or surprise,
"he went away with his friends hours agi >.
"That's a lie," said I; "only tfiroe
men have come out of the Joy in the
night, ami those are the three who went
into it with you and the man with the
fair beard."
"I wou't contradict a lady, but if he
didn't go away with his friends he is in
the house now. and if you aie still in
doubt you had better come in and see."
These last words he whispered with
such a fiendish grin that there was no
mistaking ais meaning. If he had said
plainly, "Come in and share the same
rate as the man with the fair beard,'*"
I lie threat would not have been more
obvious.
" Will yon oome, Beauty," he added
with a sneer.
I made no reply, and he went on to
the Joy with a derisive chuckle.
Iv was not the fear of death that made
a coward of me; my life was too wretched
and hopela-M to be cherished. It was
inst the dread of personal violence and
physical suffering; that's all. But in
the course of the morning I grew apathetic under the sense of weariness and
dejection. "If the man with the fair
beard Is killed," I said to myself, "I may
is well be killed, too, and be done with
,t for frond and all."
And with this thought I croesed the
1 ine and pushed open the swing door of
the Joy.

IN STEP WITH THE SEASON
Cur place is now full of all the dainty goods peculiar to this season. We have everything new that has been produced for the Spring and Summer Trade of 1894. We don't want to tire you with prices on one or two insignincent
articles���but assure you that this Spring everything in our stock has been marked as low as it's possible to buy the same
quality of goods elsewhere.
As every lady of experience in buying Dry Goods knows���there are certain brands and makes of goods which are
called "seconds" by the manufacturers, and can of course be bought at lower prices than "firsts"-these are often pushed
in some cities, as first-class goods, and in some cases deceive even a practiced eye.
We never as yet had to resort to this kind of business, and will always try to maintain our reputation for keeping
only the very best goods.
