The only l'ure Cretin of Tartar Powder.���No Ammonia; No Alum.
Used in Millions of Homes���40 Years the Standard
Victoria, Jan. 9.���[Special ]���The Canadian-Australian steamer Warrimoo which
arrived last night brings advices from Honolulu as late as January firet.tho sailing date.
The incidents and developments of the
Hawiian tangle until the last of December
are extensively covered by the Associated
Press. The report of its correspondent,
however, leaves the matter practically thus:
On the nineteenth December, Minister Willis had an interview with President Dole
and his cabinet, at whioh he presented
President Cleveland's review -of tho pihia-
tion, tbe keynote of whioh is fouud
quotation from Minister Willis'
"You are therefore expected to promptly
relinquish the government) into the hands of
Queen Liliuokalani", and the concluding
sentence: "I have therefore to ask you in
the name and as the representative of the
United States���are you willing to abide by
the decision of the president 1" Here the
correspondent of the Associated Press leaves
the matter.
From the Hon. Basil Thompson, the Fijian minister of public lands, who arrived by
the Warrinion, the following additional and
important facts were obtained: President
Dole and hiB colleagues reserved their reply
until two hours before the Warrimoo sailed
on New Year's day, when if) was handed to
Minister Willie. The provisional government) replies that being entrenched behind
thu patriotic people of Hawaii and being
convinced that they enjoy the cordial approbation, not only of a vast majority of the
Hawaiian people, but also of the majority of
the people of t he United States, they decline to accept ihe decision of President
Cleveland or to restore the government into
the handa of Queen Liliuokalani. Acting
under specific instruction* on* receipt of this
answer, Willis prepared a despatch for
Washington which either came by the
Warrimoo or follows by the Pekin, due in
San Francisco to-morrow afternoon.
Being a keen and practised observer, Hon.
Mr. Thompson took careful note of tbe
sentiment at Honolulu, while the steamer
remained there and gives it as his opinion
that tbe natives are exercising far greater
power in bringing the affair to a focus than
has been represented, nine tenths being eager
and waiting for the queen's re-appointment:
As to the queen's unchastity, there is little
difference of opinion, but it is held that the
faot that a monarch has had his or her
amours does not unfit for government, as the
record of European nations might 'show.
The provisional government forces he pronounces crude and ill managed, composed
chiefly of beach cumbers, with about two
hundred men imported from San Francisco
by recent steamers and drawn from the
ranks of unemployed artisans. The defences
or fortifications are such that artillery fire
would completely destroy them in half an hour,
while the character of the soldiery is bringing
the provisional government into disrepute
among the Hawaian population white
and foreign. Arms and ammunition have
been distributed to trusty friends by
the provisional government, but tbe armed
force is not likely to be called forward,
especially as the Japanese naval officers
have signified their intention of supporting
any action taken by the United y Btea
minister. This action is not looke(j f(ir
prior to the receipt by Mr. Willis of instructions from Washington, formulated in
the light of the developments to date, the
provisional government's reply included.
Tne feeling in Honolulu when the Warrimoo sailed was of general relief at the prospect of a cessation of disturbing uncertainty
in the queen's re enthronement. Before
leaving Honolulu Mr. Thompson had an
interview with the British minister, the
contents **f which he siys are immat* rial
Minister Wodehouse, however, assured him
that, the excitement was greatly exagger-
ated. In this satement he is borne out by
the fact that the entire population of Honolulu joined in an harmonious and peaceable
ctlebration of New Year's day, when the
city resounded with merriment and fire-
crackers.
insurgents' magazines are also located there.
One of the hos-iiital* in Rio Janeiro had on
November 30,h 28 wounded soldiers, and
during December 103 wounded were reoeived. Of this number 99 were cured and
six died; 101 soldiers have been treat, J at
the surgeons'. The total number of wounded
in Bio does not exceed 250.
London, Jan. 8.���A despatch from Lisbon states that advices received there shew
that loud protests are being ma*le at Rio
Janeiro against the irregular imprisonment
of orderly citizens, some of whom have been
kept for twenty days without a sign of their
being tried for their alleged offenses. The
prisoneis are not allowed to communicate
with their friends. The government newspaper Tempo, which recently suspended,
was compil'el to s'np publication owing
to the character of its comments on the
British consul's notice tin,: a!! comtnuui-
_ _ catiuu between Britiah veaoelo uud the shore
statement: I ���na(*' aeea stopped owing to the danger from
the fire of the Nictheroy battery. Tfce
Brazilian naval officers who were lately
ordered to return home from Toulon are
said to have been thrown into prison as soon
as they arrived at Rio Janeiro.
Washington, Jan. 8.���It has transpired
tbat quite iunocently and indeed with the
very best intentions, the United States
Government and Captain Picking, in command of the Uuited Stat es naval forces at
Rio have in a measure been te-ponsible for
a diplomatic change at that city. It seems
that Mello, the insurgent naval chief, while
in the b.y *��f. Kio, sejzrd the Argentine ship
Dom Pedro III, laden with cattle from
Bu��nos Ayres. Senor Arroyo, the Argentine
minister at Rio, in the absence of any war
vessels of his nation, appealed to Captain
Picking for protection. The captain referred
the requ. st tu the authorities at
Washington, and he advised them to render
any assistance within his power. The matter coming to the attention of the Argentine
government, however, Senor Arroyo was recalled to Buenos Ayres on the ground that
his applicati n was premature or unnecessary. The case was argued by the Argentine officials to be one in which Brazil could
have been held for damages at the expiration of the present condition of affairs, and
not one calling for the interference of armed
forces. Senor Arroyo has served his country
as minister to Chile as well as to Brazil.
Philadelphia, Pa., Jan. 8.���Harry Tar-
chell,tho Englishman who has been enlisting men in this city for Rhode's Brazilian
company, has over 500 men on his roll. Julius C. Rhodes, who expects to command
the batalion when it gets to Brazil, eays that
he now,has two companies from Washington,
one each from Baltimore, Providence, R. I.,
Boston, Philadelphia, and two of miscellaneous men from different parts of the country; in all about 800 men. Rhodes informed
the Philadelphians that when they got to
Brazil they w* uld be expeced to fignt, and
any m*m showing the white feather would
be shot. Rliudts said that he expected no
trouble from the government about taking
the men to Brazil as none of them will be
actually enlisted until they arrive in that
country. ��� Rhodes expects to sail with his
men for Brazil on Wednesday.
Nkw York, Jan. ��.���The Herald's Buenos
Ayres special says: The Herald's correspondent in Rio Janeiro sends word
that a German boat from the warship
Alexandria was fired upon by the government troops at Ihe coil depot on Mo-
cangue island on December 22nd. The commander of the Alexandria after consultation with the German minister in Rio demanded au apology from the Government
and a salute to the German flag. This
apology was given on Dec. 20 and a salute
fired hy the fort at Santa Cruz. Tbe
officer iu charge of the troops who
did the original firing was dismissed. This
action of the Germans is considered iu
Rio to be proof of perfect neutrality
and their determination to let neither
side take liberties with the German Il *g.
It is reported last week plans had been
laid to capture Admiral Salnanha but they
were revealed to him ly a friend who was
an officer of the Nation I Guard. The officer
was shot by order of Ceneral Tulles when
his act was discovered.
Tho Removal of Derelicts,
Washington, D, C, Jan. 8.���The recent
discussion in the British House of Commons
concerning international agreement for the
removal of derelicts, * specially from the established lines of trans Atlantic travel has
been followed by a communication from the
British ambassador here inquiring whether
the governmeut of the United States has
taken or will lake any definite steps fer the
removal of these menaces to ocean trade
and travel. Commissioner of Navigation
Chamberlain states that the subject matter
of the British ambassador's letter has been
referred to the navy department, where it
properly belongs.
A   HEAVY   MORTALITY
Due to Inclement Weather In England.
All Hope Abandoned of Wilson's Survival.
London, Jan. 9.���[Special]���It is thawing
throughout the south of England. In London at midnight the thermometer registered
38 degrees above zero. It is reported that
three deaths were caused in London last
night by storms and cold weather. I is
estimated that in Great Britain no fewer
than one hundred persons were frozen to
death or killed in acci ieuts due to the cold
in the last three days.
Sir Henry Leitch, imperial governor of
Cape Colony, cabled to-day to the Maiquis
of Ripou, Secretary of State for the Colonies, t.lmt he feared all hope of the survival
of Captain Wilson and his party must be
abandoned. As soon as the rains cease and
the streams fall sufficiently to make travel
possible, a strong patrol will be sent out,
Sir Henry says, to bury the bodies of Wilson and his men. Cap*ain Wilson crossed
the Shangani river wiih tweuly men on
December 4th, in pursuit of King Lnbsngula
aud on the nex . moruirg was reinforced by
Major Forbes, his chief, who stilt Captain
Barrow with fifteen men to help him find
the Matabele. .Nothing positive as to the
fate of Wilson has been learned since.
Alfred Munson, who was tried recently
ou the charge of having killed Lieut. Ham-
hrough at Ardlamont iu Argylshire, says he
will soon publish a book explaining fully the
mystery of the murder and telling the truth
about the disappearance of the man Scott,
who was supposed lo know all the facts relating to the shooting.

consider the reports of the battle at Warina.
Copies of the Weekly News, published in
Freeton, the capital of Sierra Leone, have
been received in the last mail from the west
African coast. The edition of December 9th
contains a long article concerning thu expedition of the West India regiment under
Colonel Ellis, ngainst the Sofas in'he district un und Warina, where the fighting
between the British and French forces took
place. The writer of this article said:
"Everybody is mystified as to the object of
the present British expedition against the
Sofas, as published already.
Paris, Jan. 8.���The Journal, des Debats
says il declinen to believeh hat the French
were responsible for the Warina affair. It
complains that the French were never
officially notified of the departure of the
Britiah force into the interior. La Libertie
says it haa reason to believe that the British
were wholly blamuable. Le Temps expresses
tbe opinion that the affair was indoubtedly
the result of a misunderstanding. It adds
that the only means to prevent a repetition
'I the affair is lo bring about immediately
tlie delimitation of the boundaries the
absence of which caused the regrettable'-Jen-
counter.
Brcssels, Jan. 8.���The Paris correspondent of the Independence lielye sayB; "The
French officials deny that the government
was informed of the English expedition
against the Sofas. The colonial office was
entirely unaware nf the enterprise and,
therefore, was not able to caution the
French expedition. It is surmised that the
Eugiish were trying to male their way between French posts when tiiey were attacked. "

most   intense  excitement   exists  over the
alleged crime owing to   the   prominence of
the accused and on   account   of   the brutal
manner in which   the   crime   ia   alleged to
have been   committed.    Over   a   thousand
people struggled for admittance to the hearing today, but for   fear   of   violence to tl*e

with the government of Rum**a for the renewal of the modus vivendi in the matter of
the Behring sea risheriHS until further
notice, on the understanding that, vessels of
the United S'ates are subject to similar restrict ions. Tbe modus vivendi of last year
establishes a protected zone of 30 miles
around the Russian seal islands, and provides that Br tish sealing veBse's captured
within this belt should be ordered to Yokohama for trial by Briiish authorities. When
negotiations were opened up for a renewal
of this arrangement for 1894, the British
authorities, at the suggestion of the Canadian Government, replied that the proposal
would be acceptable, provided the United
States vessels were also included in the proposed restrictions. The decision of the
PariB tribunal was adverse to the Russian
and American contention of exclusive jurisdiction and rendered it neceasary that, according to tie Canadian view, the United
StateB should become a party to the arrangement, otherwise the modus vivendi could not
be applied to the Americans sealing within
the 30 mile zone, provided they respected
the three mile limit.

A Toronto Sensation.
ToRO.\To,Jan S.���A decided sensation has
been created in fashionable society circles
here by the announcement ol the clandestine marriage of Miss Helen Cook, the sixteen-year-old daughter of Mr. John L. Cook
the millionaire lumber man and vice-president of the Conk Brothers' Lumber Company, to Walter H* nry Cooper, a private in
the Infantry 8oho��l co pa here, whose income is only 30 ce* ts a day. The marriage
took place six we*k�� ago at. the little An-
glican Church in the West End, but as the
young soldier immediately resumed his military duties and the girl went home the facts
only leaked out to-day. It is said that the
young bride is heiress to over a million
dollars. Cooper, who is the son of Rev. A.
W. F. Cooper,rector of the Anglican Church
of the Redeemer at Calgary, N W. T., has
already begun the study of medicine. It is

THE FIGHT IN WEST AFRICA.
It appears that the attack made on
British soldiers in West Africa by French
troops was the result of a mistake com-
mitteed by the French officer in command,
acting on erroneous information supplied
him by the natives. It is now stated that
ten ot the British were killed and fifteen
severely wounded. Of the French, eleven
were killed.inoluding Lieutenant Moritz,the
officer in command. Moritz before his death
said that the natives had told him that the
troops he was attacking were Sofas, and
that he had no idea that they were British.
It was a night attack that Moritz made;
which perhaps accounts for the fact that he
did not recognize the British uniform. The attack Beems to have been made
in overwhelming force. The number of the
Britiah is not given; on the side of the
French 32 Sencuulesn sharpshooters, and
1,200 Kissi natives were engaged. It seems
that the British repulsed the attack, though
with heavy loss, and in their subsequent advance tbey found Lieutenant Morilz, the
French commander, lying severely wounded,
and also picked up eight chassepots, and
seven magazine rifles In despite of medical
aid, Lieutenant Moritz died within an hour
after he waB found, and was buried, along
with the rest, of the Frene'n dead, by the
British,with military honors. It appears that
Colonel Bellis, of tho West India regiment, sent a letter on Dec. 13th to the
French officer in command at Kissi, giung
him notice of the approach of the British.
Ho also wrote to Lieutenant Moritz, explaining the situation,'but the date of the
letter to Moritz is not given.
The French attack oa the British took
place on December 23rd, before daybreak.
On the 21st December Lieu'.enant Mori'z's
party was at Tetibikundu, f>0 miles northeast of Warina, where the attack took
place. There therefore appears to have
been plenty of time for the French commander at Kissi to have notified Moritz of
the advance of the British, had he wished
to do so, and to have prevented this unfortunate collision. The Paris correspondent
of the Independence, Beige says thit the
French officials deny that their government
was informed of the English expedition
against the Sofas, and that therefore the
colouial office was not able to oaution the
French expedition. It is supposed in Paris
that the English were trying to make their
way between the French posts when they
were attacked. La Libertie Bays it has
reason to believe that the British were
wholly to blame. Le Temps expresses the
opinion that the affair was the result of a misunderstanding, and adds that the only way
to prevent a repetition of it is to bring
about immediately the' delimitation of the
boundaries, the absence of which cauBed the
regrettable encounter. On the other hand
it is distinctly affirmed in the dispatches
from London that Warina is within the
British sphere of influence. This, we suppose, means that it is not within British
territory, but adjtoont to it. The affair
will lead to the shedding of much ink by
diplomatists, aud probably to much angry
discussion iu the French and British press,
but it does not seem likely that it will lead
to war.
We are nevertheless of the opinion that
England's safest plan would be at once
openly to join the triple alliance, and so
make a sudden attack upon her by either
France or Russia impossible, if the French
and Russian governments are not lunatics.
By this means the peace nf Europe would
be secured, and all danger averted. But
this is not likely to be done so long as the
Gladstone government is in power. Under
-the Gladstone regimo Great Britain need
not hope for security and prosperity at
home, or power and respeot abroad.
A prominent American paper says: "The
���torieg from Africa relating to the fate of
Captain Wilson and his party are rather
conflicting. A few days ago Wilson and
hia men were represented as being surrounded and out to pieces by -Matabeles, but
the natives are repeating rumors that Wilson and his party are still in pursuit of Lo
Bengula. In all probability the latter will
be found to be right. The chances are ten
to one that a fighter of the oaliber of Wilson would not permit himself to be ambushed
by savages, and so long as he is not surprised he may be depended, on to take care
of himself, no matter how big a party Lo
Bengula may bring against him."
It is stated at the Fisheries Department
at Ottawa that canneries established in
American territory will not be granted
licenses to fish in Canadian waters; that
Buch can be granted only to British subjects.
This is quite right; let American canners
stay at home and fish, or employ men to
fish their own waters.
The Democratic committee on ways and
means, which drew up the Wilson tariff,
now admit thnt if that tariff becomes law it
will reduce the revenue of the United
States $75,700,000 per annum. It is proposed to establish an income tax to make up
the Iobs. If the Canadian Government reduces the Canadan tariff too much, a similar tax will have to be retorted to in Canada. We trust that the Government will
stand by the principle of moderate protection to native industries, and refuse to impose an income tax or to res >rt to direct
taxation in any form.
Says the Seattle Post Intelligencer:���
"Carey Logan wus for fifty years messenger
of the Bank of Kentucky, of Louisville, and
in all that, time never made an error in his
work, and h nulled millions nf dollars without losing a cent. He was born a slave in
1812, and wus a slave when made porter
and messenger of the bank in 1841. He
could neither read nor write, nor had he
ever been taught arithmetic, hut for years
before the clearing house was established he
went to other lunks with exchanges and to
merchants and others with drafts, and invariably returned with money and accounts
correct.    The old man has just died."
The Nkw York Sun's correspondent at
Washington telegraphed to that paper on
Sunday that Minister Willis, acting under
instructions from the president, and secretary of state, hud called on the provisional
government of Hawaii to resign and make
way for the restoration of Queen Liliuoka-
lani, who had up *n reflection consented to
be restored. The information came to the
state department ou Sunday morning in a
long cipher despatch from Honolulu,
brought to San Francisco by the revenue
cutter Corwin, which arrived at that port
on Saturday night. The New York Herald's
Washington correspondent telegraphs in
respect to this, "that the provisional government declined to abide by President
Cleveland's decision, and that President
Dole expressed his determination to resist
by force of arms any attempt > y the queen's
forces to ous* him." It hence appears that
Queen Liliuokalani, if restored at all, must
be restored by Uni'f-d States troops, whom
President Dole, we imagine, daie not resist;
but President Cleveland must, obtain leave
from Congress before he can use United
States troops for such a purpose.

Mrs. Ellis, who has just closed her course
of lectures in the Institute hall, has a rare

certain of receiving a hearty weloome and
having large audiences.
The entertainment given by Ss. Paul's
choir of Nanaimo in the Institute Hall on
Saturday evening was well patronized, but
the inclement weather no doubt prevented a
great many from attending, what was no
doubt a treat but seldom rendered to i he
people of Wellington. The programme
opened with-an overture by the caches-
-tra. The farce -'My Turn Next," was well
carried out and created ro.irs of laughter.
In the second half of the programme tin
several songs sung elicited hearty applause
much appreciated. The choruses were well
sung, with much spirit. All the young
ladies who took par' in the production are
to be congratulated on their excellent acting
and singing, as also in Miss Smith for their
careful and thorou��'i training. The scenic
effects were very good, the last scene having
a pretty effeot, combined ai it was with the
tasteful grouping of th�� players rnund the
central figures to the music of a very pretty
air for the chorus, and as a finale God Save
the Queen.

Storlea of Great Luck.
Captain Ben Ferguson, collector on the
ferryboat Hite, is always reminiscent.
The other day tho captain said to ihe:
���"You seldom hear of a man making
$90,000 in one night in these days, but I
know of such an inatanca. Mr. Coleman, who ran a foundry on Washington
street, near Brook, did it. In relating it
to me ho exhibited ...j Ucliyi.it whatever,
His words were: 'Captain, I made $1)0,-
600 last night; went to bed early and
slept soundly. You know the price of
iron went up, and fortunately I had
enough on baud, wliiali I had purchased
at rt low figure, to not me a fortune.' As
Captain l^er-juson ttoncluded the story
he toid unothor ol kuw Dennis Long
mado ^GCOOU bee-use tha price of iron
dropped -out of sight.' It was just at a
time when Mr. Long had failed in business and tqM Cap;am Ferguson that he
was $100,000 in deb*.
"Well,"said thecaptaim, "Dennis Long
west up to Indianapolis to bid on the
construction ut the oity waterworks.
There was but one other bidder, and
Mr. Long was awa.rde4 the contract.
Not long after iroa began fluctuating,
and Long's estimate having been mado
on the basis tbat iron would advance
still more la price, it already being high
ai the time, he ef course found that as
it decreased he was reaping a golden
harvest. Well, iron went down and
down. When it stopped, it was worth
hardly anything. Mr. Long, as I said,
made $200,000 by this, and he's been
making money ever since."���Louisville

A   SUCCESSFUL   PERFORMANCE.
A Full House Greets tbe Prodnction of
"Maud Irving."
There was a crowded house last night to
witness the operetta "Maud Irving" by (he
girls of Miss Lawson's room. The followiug
young ladies took part in vhe production:
Jennie McAlpine, Bessie Craig, Queeuie
Maitland, Ethel Wolfe, Fanny Dick, J.
Dick, Maggie Quennell, A. McGregor, Myr.*.
Sloggett, Katie McGill, Lottie Barrett,
Mary Quennell, Maggie McDonald, Mr.ry
Kumsay, May Tulloy, Maggie Frame, Nellie
Pollock, Amy Williams, Lillian Wetih,
Nellie McGill, Jane Chtllouer, Maggie Mu-
Adie, Maud Murohiaoo, Miuuie Ruinmings,
Nettie McAdie, Maggie Ramsay, Etta Sni'n-
nard, M-ry Hague, Mab.il Raper, Alice
Langinl, Lillie Brown, Katie Maunon,
Florrie Honeyman aud Kalis Uuritua.
The pt**gtamme started -.villi a tableau,
"School Life," whioh was very pretty, allowing as it did a number of youthful beauties
in pretty costumes. Then uarae a diet by
Jennie McAlpine aud Bxsait Craig whiuli
was appreciated muoh by ths audienoe. 1 ho
recitation by Queenie Maitland called for an
enoore, after which Ethel Wolfe played ��
piano solo surprisingly well fer one so young.
The solo by Fanny Diok was mich adminid.
The play, "Maud Irving," was very olever-
ly rendered by the girls taking part. The
role of "Maud Irving" was taken by both
Mies Jennie McAlpine and Miss Maggie
Quennell, and waa done equal justice to by
both, the solos in their respective parts
drawing forth enthusiastic applause.
"Walter Travers," the adopted child,
was played by Miss A McGregor,
who made a most realistic, though very
feminine young man and as the
sailor lover of Maudo looked and sang extremely well and played the part of the
lover with ease. Miss Myra Sloggett as Mrs.
St. Clair made a very handsome and stalely
young matron and played the part of the
.aunt very effectively, whilst her solos were
muoh admired. Miss Katie MoGill did
justice toher part aa the widow "Helper, "and
sang her solos very well. Miss. Lottie Bar-'
rett aoted well her part as "Insley Kidder,"
and Miss Mary Quennell did the business of
''Neighbour treen" with ease and naturalness whilst her singing as also that of Miss
Maggie McDonald as "Mrs Grasper"   waa
���fce Blind Postman.
One ot the eompatay is appointed Postmaster-General another is Postman. The
Others seat them iu a oircle, leaving room
to move about, and with no extra chairs.
The Postmaster-General goes to eaoh person, and writes down his name and tbe
name of a town that he ohooses to represent As soon as ths towns are chosen,
the Postman is blindfolded and placed in
the middle of the room. The Postmaster
then announoes that a letter has been sent
from one town to another, perhaps from
New York to London. The representatives
of those two cities then, as silently as possible change seats. While they are mov*
ing, the Postman tries to secure one of the
seats for himself. If be succeeds, the one
who to left out becomes Postman.

Mayor Quennell, being sailed upon for a
spet ch thanked those to whom his election
was due and said that he was not sorry that
there was not to be an elect! m. He believed his actions would speak louder than
any words he might use and hoped that the
relations between mayor and council would
remain as harmonious as in the p^st. He
alluded to the resurvey of the city which he
considered to have been a wise measure for
the city and which would bo appreciated as
such by every rate payer eventually that
when he retired he hoped that he would be
able to feel the same satisfaction as Mayor
Haslam in work well done.
J. H. C''cking said that he was seeking
re-election on the same ground as last year.
If re-elected he would do Mb best as he had
endeavored to do up till then. Nauaimo
was capable of improvement and he would
do his best in every way to assist in the
pushing forward of everything in the interests of tbe city.
R. Craig did not consider it a very great
honor to be an alderman and it was not a
remunerative office. If he was re-elected iie
would work honestly and fearlessly for the
interests of the city.
R. Nightingale considered that it was a
very great honor to be an alderman of Nanaimo and considered this
city equal to any in the Province. He
had always conscientiously done his duty
and during the past session had been chairman of the street committee and good work
had been done economically. He referred
to the improved condition of the city
finances as left by the retiring council. This
time he waB seeking election in the Middle
ward and wanted to be elected by a large
majority.
A. Churchill remarked that if he waB
elected as alderman he would endeavor to
hiB duty faithfuily.
A. Wilson mentioned that he wished tn
be elected for the Middle ward and hoped
to be returned by a large majority. He was
a miner and a representative of that class,
but had in crests in the city, and if elided
would give his time and energy to the pro
motion of the interests of Nanaimo.
M. E. Webb said he had been elected on
six or seven occasions and was seeking
election again, and if returned would act as
he had in the past. J(e complimented the
retiring council on the work they had doue,
especially in having the city re-surveyed.

An Invitation to  tbe Governor-General.
By to-day's mail there speeds on its way,
to Ottawa an invitation to the Governor-
General and Lady Aberdeen to attend the
annual hall of the Nanaimo Caledonian
Society. The invitation is addressed to His
Excellency the Right Honorable John Campbell Hamilton Gordon, Earl of Aberdeen,
Governor-General of Canada, conveys the
compliments of the season to Lady Aberdeen and himself, and requests their presence at the ball; and is signed by Wm.
Sloan, the president, and J. A. Ward Bell,
secretary of the society. The text of the
invitation is printed in a tasteful
script on a tablet of pale blue
satin, which is superimposed upon a
< broad satin ribbon of the dark and handsome Gordon tartan, which runs diagonally
across a broad white mat of heavy textured
cardboard, wliich ie continued on the other
side to form a fly. The whole is enclosed
between covers of rough surfaced oream
colored board, prettily scalloped round the
edges and tied with heavy pale blue silk
cord at the buck. The invitation is a fi**e
example of typographic art, and came from
the job department of The Teleoram.

Pianos and Organs.
In these days when manufacturers urge
the low price of their wares rather than
their superior quality as an inducement to
purchase, it may not be amiss to suggest
that in a piano quality and price are too inseparably joined to expect one without the
other. Cheap pianos arc made to sell and
too often the purchaser is sold with the
piano. The Karn Piano aud Organ Company makes no pretensions as manufacturers of cheap instruments which are offered
at a less price than good material would
cost. Many points of **uperiority characterise the Karn piauo. Tne patent scales used
in this piauo are so construe,ed that they
produce throughout the entire register great
depth and purity of tone, combined with
prolonged singing quality.
The reputation of the Karn organ stands
to-day equal to that of any other manufacture on the American continent, The company has one of the largest and most complete establishments iu the world for the
manufacture of both pianos and organs.
Karn organs and pianos have always received the highest awards wherever exhibited over all compel iters. They received
the last medal awarded by the Domin on of
Canada as well as the last medal awarded
by the Toronto Industrial Exhibition,
though they did not get a medal at the
WoiM'b fair, as there was only oue Canadian manufacturer represented. The quality of the Karn instrument is well known to
musicians, and both pianos and organs are
warranted for seven years.

AUDITOR'S   REPORT.
Nanaimo, B. C.'*, Jan. 6th. 1894.
To His  Worship  i he  Mayor and Council,
Nanaimo, B. C.
Gentlemen.���According to your instructions, I have inspected and audited the
books of the City and Public Schools and
Cemetery.
I find the deeds, papers and documents
carefully preserved, the vouchers properly
numbered, checked and tiled; the monies
deposited in the Savings Banks to the credit
of the respective debenture accounts for
which intended, and all books kept in a neat
aud legible manner.
The balance sheet showing the liabilities
of the City to be only $1,232.47 as against
$4,834.18 at the beginning of 1893, is a matter for congratulation to the retiring council
as well as citizens.
Tn conclusion would draw your attention
to the fact that the work pertaining to the
oity clerk's office is increasing every year,
and would suggest that iu future the books
be closed at an earlier date, aud that a
greater length of time be allowed for audit
ing.
All of which is respectfully submitted,
A. A. RICHARDSON,
Auditor for 1893.

See the Costv.mes we are selling at Half Price. There's not an objectionable one amoDg them. We have already
s )ld eight or ten and expect to clear every one of them out this month.
We believe in keeping cur stock clear, so as to be able every Season, as it comes round, to give our customers nice
clean goods in all the latest novelties the market produces To be able to do this we have, of course, to slaughter some
stuff at Ridiculous Prices.
We almost forgot to mention that we intend clearing out our balance of Ladies' and Children's Waterproofs, at
prices that are certain to sell them.   The "Bretagne" Lacing Gloves take the lead.
